DeKalb buildings up for auction Old clinic locations part of changes going on in downtown district By DAVID THOMAS

and KATE SCHOTT DeKALB – Two former DeKalb Clinic buildings will be auctioned this week as a handful of smaller shops and restaurants downtown announce changes. The buildings at 217 Franklin St. and 302 Grove St. have

served as storage since the DeKalb Clinic moved its operations to a new facility near Kishwaukee Community Hospital in 2009. DeKalb Public Library officials considered buying the two buildings for $1.8 million, but abandoned the plan in October 2010 amid concerns over an improper closed-session vote and estimates that removing asbestos from the buildings would cost

$100,000. Since then, the properties’ worth has slipped with declining values throughout the area, with no starting value determined for Thursday’s auction. Neither Roger Hopkins, the city’s economic development consultant, nor DeKalb Clinic administrator Alice Frier could say who may show up for the auction. “We’ve had a few inquiries

over the past week,” Hopkins said. According to Almburg Auctioneer’s website, any member of the public can bid on the two buildings, which have a total of 50,435 square feet. Potential bidders must be able to place $10,000 down Thursday, and pay the remaining balance by April 15.

Proposal targets drunken drivers By JEFF ENGELHARDT DeKALB – More drivers may need to blow into a Breathalyzer to start their cars if Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White’s proposal becomes law. White is pushing to expand the state’s Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device program to include more drunken driving offenders and to require jail time for offenders caught driving without the device. The program requires drivers to take a Breathalyzer test before the vehicle can start. Any person with a blood-alcohol content of 0.025 or greater registers a failed Roger Scott test with the DeKalb Co. s e c r e t a r y o f sheriff state’s office and faces an extension of the time the device must be used. DeKalb County Sheriff Roger Scott said expanded use of the in-vehicle alcohol detection system would benefit everyone. He said the device allows drunken driving offenders to maintain their driving privileges and protects the public by keeping intoxicated drivers off the road. “People would have the incentive to get them,” Scott said.

Local police agencies weigh costs of technological advancements By DAVID THOMAS DeKalb County Sheriff Roger Scott can envision a day when local police use unmanned aerial vehicles to search for lost individuals or

criminal suspects. “Our main focus would be for field searches,” Scott said. “This would be for a concentrated area ... short-term searches of wooded areas or fields.” He’s not interested in using un-

manned technology for long-term surveillance, though. Those unmanned aerial vehicles, often called drones, have generated much conversation in political and government circles, with U.S. Sen. Rand Paul delivering a

13-hour filibuster March 6 on the possibility of the U.S. government using them to execute kill orders on Americans on U.S. soil. The next day, a bill to restrict drone use in

Fury mounts in Cyprus over bank bailout plan By DAVID McHUGH and MENELAOS HADJICOSTIS The Associated Press NICOSIA, Cyprus – A plan to seize up to 10 percent of savings accounts in Cyprus to help pay for a $20.4 billion financial bailout was met with fury Monday, and the government shut down banks until later this week while lawmakers wrangled over how to keep the island nation from bankruptcy. Although the euro and stock prices of European banks fell, global financial markets largely remained calm, and there was little

sense that bank account holders elsewhere across the continent faced similar risk. Political leaders in Cyprus scrambled to devise a new plan that would not be so burdensome for people with less than $129,290 in the bank. The authorities delayed a parliamentary vote on the seizure of $7.5 billion and ordered banks to remain shut until Thursday while they try to modify the deal, which must be approved by other eurozone governments. Once a deal is in place, they will be ready to lend Cyprus $13 billion in rescue loans. A rejection of the pack-

age could see the country go bankrupt and possibly drop out of the euro currency – an outcome that would be even more damaging to financial markets’ confidence. Even while playing down the chance of fresh market turmoil, experts warned that the surprise move broke an important taboo against making depositors pay for Europe’s bailouts. As a result, it may have longer-term consequences for confidence in Europe’s banking system – and its ability to end its financial crisis. “It’s a precedent for all European countries. Their mon-

ey in every bank is not safe,” said lawyer Simos Angelides at an angry protest outside parliament in Cyprus’ capital, Nicosia, where people chanted, “Thieves, thieves!” Eurozone finance ministers held a telephone conference Monday night, and concluded that small depositors should not be hit as hard as others. They said the Cypriot authorities will stagger the deposit seizures more, but they remained firm in demanding that the overall sum of money raised by the seizures remain the same. The decision to hit deposits up to $129,290 – the deposit in-

surance limit in Cyprus – with a 6.75 percent tax and those above that with a 9.9 percent tax was dictated partly by the unusual qualities of the country’s financial system. Cyprus, with only 0.2 percent of the eurozone economy, has a bloated banking system seven times the size of the island’s economy. Losses on Greek government bonds had crippled Cypriot banks and required government money to bail them out. Meanwhile, a large proportion of deposits – 37 percent – come from people outside Cyprus and the European Union, much of it from Russia.


What it means State and local law enforcement officials want to require more offenders to have Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Devices installed in their vehicles. Now, first-time DUI offenders can opt to drive while their license is suspended so long as the device is installed in their vehicle; the car won’t start if the device detects alcohol on the driver’s breath.

State: Ill. Lottery manager owes a penalty By REGINA GARCIA CANO

A customer fills out a lottery form March 29 for the Mega Millions drawing in Chicago. The Illinois Lottery said Monday it is entitled to $20 million from Northstar Lottery Group after the private manager fell $95 million short of promised profits.

The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – The private operator of the Illinois Lottery faces a $20 million penalty because it fell nearly $66 million short of the profits it promised the state in its inaugural year, state officials said Monday. Northstar Lottery Group will have to pay the penalty even though its sales were nearly $400 million higher in fiscal 2012 than in the last year the state administered the lottery, state officials said. The contract between the Illinois Lottery and Northstar requires the company, which took over management in 2011, to compensate the state when it fails to reach certain net income targets. Northstar promised to generate $823 million in net income in fiscal year 2012, but Illinois officials have estimated that it generated $757 million. Avis LaVelle, Northstar’s vice president for corporate affairs, said the contract requires Illinois to share an audit with Northstar under a “dispute resolution” clause in the contract, so the announcement came as a surprise to the company. “We are in the dark on the assumptions they used,” LaVelle said. “We have no way of determining on what the (state) is basing its claims on, no idea

AP file photo

of the methodology of the calculations or whether they conform to generally accepted accounting practices.” Illinois Lottery spokesman Mike Lang said an audit isn’t necessary to determine the shortfall. To recoup the $20 million, Lang said the state will withhold future monthly payments that Northstar regularly receives as part of management fees. Northstar Lottery Group is a partnership between lottery giants GTECH, which holds the state contract for lottery machines, and Scientific Games, which provides Illinois’ instant tickets. Gov. Pat Quinn on Monday said there is room for Northstar to improve. “We want to have a model that reach-

es everyone,” Quinn said during an unrelated event in Chicago. “They have some work to do to make that happen.” Quinn didn’t offer many specifics, but suggested that perhaps the lottery could try to attract more new players, perhaps with special games. “They’ve made a beginning, they just have to continue on a progress path. We want to make sure that happens,” Quinn said when asked to rate the private group’s performance. Lang acknowledged lottery sales reached a record under Northstar, increasing from $2.3 billion to $2.7 billion. But he added that the year “wasn’t good enough” for Northstar to avert the payments detailed in the contract.

High court divided over Ariz. voter requirement By JESSE J. HOLLAND The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Supreme Court justices disagreed Monday over whether states can require would-be voters to prove they are U.S. citizens before using a federal registration system designed to make signing up easier. Arizona and other states told the justices the precaution is needed to keep illegal immigrants and other noncitizens from voting. But some justices asked whether states have the right to force people to document their citizenship when Congress ordered the states to accept and use federal “motor voter” registration cards that only ask registrants to swear on paper they are U.S. citizens. “I have a real big disconnect with how you can be saying you’re accepting and using, when you’re not registering people when they use it the way the federal law permits them to,” Justice Sonia Sotomayor said to Arizona Attorney General Thomas C. Horne. “It is the burden of the states to determine the eligibility of the voters,” Horne said. This is the second voting eligibility issue the high court is tackling this

session. Last month, several justices voiced deep skepticism about whether a section of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, a law that has helped millions of minorities exercise their right to vote, especially in areas of the Deep South, was still needed. The court will make decisions in both later this year. In Monday’s case, the court is deciding the legality of Arizona’s requirement that prospective voters document their U.S. citizenship in order to use a registration form produced under the federal “motor voter” registration law. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the 1993 National Voter Registration Act, which doesn’t require such documentation, trumps Arizona’s Proposition 200 passed in 2004. Arizona appealed that decision to the Supreme Court. The case focuses on Arizona, which has tangled frequently with the federal government over immigration issues involving the Mexican border. But it has broader implications because four other states – Alabama, Georgia, Kansas and Tennessee – have similar requirements, and 12 other states are contemplating such legislation.

D-428 school officials to hear about online charter school By DAVID THOMAS DeKALB – For the next month, DeKalb school officials will weigh the benefits and costs of joining a multidistrict, online charter school. The DeKalb School District 428 board will hear from officials with Virtual Learning Solutions of St. Charles at its meeting today. If the district chooses to enroll, DeKalb students will be able to sign up for classes with the Illinois Virtual Academy at Fox River Valley in the fall. The academy’s company, Virtual Learning Solutions of St. Charles, is petitioning 18 local school districts, including Sycamore. Students who enroll in the online charter school will not be able to enroll in a District 428 school. District 428 Superintendent Jim Briscoe said the board and administration will listen to the presentation with

school at DeKalb school board meeting n When: 7 p.m. today n Where: Education Center, 901 S. Fourth St., DeKalb an open mind. “It provides for the school board and the administration to ask questions,” Briscoe said. The meeting also will serve as a public hearing, and attendees will have an opportunity to comment. The board has 30 days to approve or deny the charter. The administration’s recommendation, as well as the board vote, likely will occur at the April 16 meeting, Briscoe said. Board members elected April 9 will not be seated until May. “The board that will hear the public hearing will be the board that votes on it,” Briscoe said.

The federal “motor voter” law, enacted in 1993 to expand voter registration, requires states to offer voter registration when a resident applies for a driver’s license or certain benefits. Another provision of that law – the one at issue before the court – requires states to allow would-be voters to fill out mailin registration cards and swear they are citizens under penalty of perjury, but it doesn’t require them to show proof. Under Proposition 200, Arizona officials require an Arizona driver’s license issued after 1996, a U.S. birth certificate, a passport or other similar document, or the state will reject the federal registration application form. Justice Antonin Scalia seemed to think that a sworn statement wasn’t enough to allow people to register to vote. “If you’re willing to violate the voting laws, I suppose you’re willing to violate the perjury laws,” he said. But lawyer Patricia Millett, representing those challenging the law, answered that courts accept sworn statements as proof in criminal cases, some of which end in executions. Congress decided that a sworn statement with the risk of perjury was sufficient to register to vote in the federal system, she said.

8BRIEFS Ill. officials kick off youth anti-violence week

Karzai opponents talk with Taliban, other militant groups

CHICAGO – Illinois officials kicked off a youth violence prevention week Monday by calling attention to the shooting death of a 6-month-old Chicago girl, but did not offer new strategies or funding to address the problem. Gov. Pat Quinn and Department of Public Health Director LaMar Hasbrouck instead talked up the importance of creating awareness and pointed the public to the department’s website, which includes a link on cyberbullying. The appearance at a new Chicago children’s hospital marked the start of National Youth Violence Prevention Week. Quinn has recently focused on violence in Illinois. He spent the last two Sundays at Chicago houses of worship reiterating his call for an assault weapons ban and pointing to last week’s slaying of Jonylah Watkins, who was shot while sitting on her father’s lap inside a vehicle.

KABUL, Afghanistan – Afghan opposition parties, frustrated with the government’s lack of progress in making peace with the Taliban, have opened their own channel for negotiations with militant groups in hopes of putting their imprint on a deal to end 11 years of war. Taliban and opposition leaders confirmed to The Associated Press for the first time that the parties opposed to President Hamid Karzai have been talking since the beginning of the year to the Taliban as well as the militant group headed by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, a U.S.-declared terrorist. They are trying to find a political resolution to the Afghan war ahead of two key events in 2014 – the presidential race that will determine Karzai’s successor and the final stage of withdrawal of international combat troops from the country.

Sycamore lists more street fixes SYCAMORE – Fourteen Sycamore streets and an alley are on the city’s list to be improved in the proposed 2013 Street Maintenance Program, which was presented Monday to the Sycamore City Council. The nearly $2.4 million plan to repair and resurface several streets this summer is part of the city’s effort to maintain the functionality and appearance of its roadways. The program, which is funded by the local 2-cent per gallon gasoline tax and half percent home-rule sales tax, was developed in 2008 and has since improved about 7.25

n What: Candidates Night

DeKALB – Residents will have a chance to ask questions of their potential local leaders Wednesday at DeKalb City Hall. The League of Women Voters of DeKalb County will host Candidates Night on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in the DeKalb City Hall Council Chambers on the second floor of the building at 200 S. Fourth St., according to a news release. Organizers have invited candidates for the following offices to participate: DeKalb mayor, aldermen and clerk; Kishwaukee College trustee; DeKalb County Regional Board of Education trustee; DeKalb Township offices; DeKalb School District 428 board; and DeKalb Park District. Citizens can submit questions before the event at the door by filling out a small card. Questions should be directed at all candidates in a particular race and not at one individual, according to the news release. Those wanting to submit questions should do so 10 minutes before the event begins. The event will be televised on public access Chan-

miles of streets and 15 alleys. Priority areas on the list are Meadow Lane, Lincolnshire Drive, West Stonehenge Drive, Lincoln Street, Kishwaukee Drive, Wild Street, Hillcrest Drive and East High Street. The entire list of streets and alleys to be repaired through 2017 sits at 74 projects. “We’re confident we can really work through this list in the next four years and continue to add streets over the years as needed,” Sycamore City Manager Brian Gregory said. Bethany Road will undergo the largest upgrade with about $1 million of the city’s street maintenance fund combined with $450,000 in state grants. The maintenance plan calls

for a widening and resurfacing of the road east of Peace Road to east of Aster Road. “Bethany Road has been on our radar for quite awhile,” Sycamore Mayor Ken Mundy said. The widening of the road will extend it to three lanes with a center-turn lane, making it more accessible to semitrailers, Mundy said. Mundy said he is pleased with the progress the program has made in the past five years, even with the downturn of the economy. He commended the council for keeping its promise and not redirecting the street maintenance funds elsewhere in times of economic hardship.

The council also looked at changes to the city’s Downtown Facade Improvement Program, which maintains a consistent appearance among the residences, businesses and other buildings in downtown Sycamore. The city has general capital funds available to qualified downtown building owners who need improvements. The city will match up to $5,000 in eligible improvement costs per building. Grant applications will be available in April. There is a priority period in which applications are accepted during May. Applications submitted after May 31 will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

will work at the Osco pharmacy. Karen May, spokeswoman for Jewel-Osco, said there would be no interruption to service during the transition.

where he picked up the name Tug, although its origin is lost to history. His early years were spent between Rhinelander and Land O’Lakes, Wis., where he graduated from Eagle River High School. From there, he went to the University of Wisconsin in Madison where he graduated with a degree in business. It was at UW that he met his future wife, Jean Becker, during her first week of classes. They went on to get married on her graduation day and spent the next 64 years together. After graduation, they moved to Rhinelander where he went to work for the Merchants State Bank. Their first daughter was born there, but as with most young families, World War II intervened in a most imposing way. Tug enlisted in the Marines in 1942. They stayed together until he shipped overseas to the South Pacific whereupon Jean moved back to stay with her parents in Sycamore. After the war, Tug went to work at Jean’s family business, Ideal Industries Inc., in Sycamore. He always said it was to be a two-year stint, but ultimately he retired 37 years later as its chairman of the board. He brought Ideal to a level of

professionalism and stability that endures to this day. Even though he lived in Illinois, his love of the north woods persisted and spilled over to the rest of his growing family. They acquired property in Vilas County in the early ’50s, which he added to for the rest of his life. It has become a focal point for the larger family with several family members owning homes there. Jean and Tug retired to their beloved woods in 1984. Throughout his life, Tug was known for his strong commitment to the principles embodied in the golden rule. It took the form of being involved in many civic and charity organizations ranging from local city council, to Scout leader, to church member, to participant in activities to promote and preserve good conservation. In his later years, those activities became a little more focused where he took an active role in the Limnology Center at Trout Lake, and he had a major impact on many students in Vilas and Oneida counties through his scholarship and student aid activities. Nothing pleased him more than helping others achieve their dreams.

He is survived by his son, David (Suzanne) of Sycamore; daughters, Nancy (John Popovich) of Denver, Colo., Sally of Fort Collins, Colo., Patricia of Rhinelander and Susan (Herbert) Golding of Lincolnshire; brother, Tim (Betty) in Milwaukee; and nieces and a nephew. His 10 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren will miss visiting with Grampa Tug at the Lake. He was preceded in death by Jean in 2004; a daughter, Virginia, in 1992; parents; and sister, Elizabeth. There will be a memorial service on Thursday, March 21, at First Congregational Church in Eagle River, Wis. Visitation will begin at 9 a.m., memorial service at 11 a.m. and a luncheon following the service at the church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made either to the Nicolet College Foundation, P.O. Box 518, Rhinelander, WI 54501, or to the University of Wisconsin Foundation, U.S. Bank Lockbox, P.O.

Sycamore yoga studio focuses on children By DAVID THOMAS

David Thomas –

Abby Knapek performs a “double boat” with yoga instructor Sue Erickson (right). Erickson owns Katerpillar Kids Yoga in Sycamore, and will host sessions at the Midwest Museum of Natural History next week.

SYCAMORE – Sue Erickson wanted to give the gift of imagination and creativity to her horseback-riding students. She has taught horseback riding for 25 years, but recently she felt she was missing a link in her teaching. She eventually found yoga and began teaching it to her students. “When you’re physically connected, you’re more mentally connected,” Erickson said. “Teaching them to kind of grow roots and wings at the same time.” Erickson now runs her own yoga studio – Katerpillar Kids Yoga – for children between ages 5 and 13. She shares the space with Jazzercise at 1210 E. State St. in Sycamore, teaching classes three times a week. Erickson will hold yoga sessions at the Midwest Museum of Natural History, 425 W. State St. in Sycamore, from

back-riding lessons for years. “Going on the journey with her, I’ve learned kind of a bit of yoga that I practice at home that’s helped with the riding and everyday life,” Knapek said. The way a child practices yoga is different than how an adult does, Erickson said. She said she tries to keep in mind the short-attention spans of some children. “I like to incorporate some props ... Letting the child continue to do the movement until they feel like they are successful at it,” Erickson said. “And everybody’s meaning of success is different to them ... If they want to stand in tree pose for 30 seconds, maybe they can hold it for 10 seconds. To them, that’s successful.” At some point in the future, Erickson said she would like to have her own yoga studio in Sycamore that would cater to all members of the community – adults and children.

Erickson said she is working toward her certification to teach yoga to teenagers, as well. She is certified through ChildLight Yoga, a company based in Dover, N.H. Erickson said children need a way to relax that does not involve watching television or playing video games, and yoga provides that outlet. “I am trying to teach them another way to relax without using technology,” Erickson said.

8WORLD BRIEF Syrian opposition elects interim prime minister ISTANBUL – Syria’s opposition coalition early today elected a little-known American-educated IT manager and Islamic activist to head an interim government to administer the areas seized by rebel forces from the forces of President Bashar Assad.

Ghassan Hitto received 35 votes out of 48 ballots cast by the opposition Syrian National Coalition’s 63 active members during a meeting in Istanbul. Coalition members hope the new government will unite the rebels fighting Assad’s forces on the ground and provide services to Syrians living in

Daily Chronicle / NEWS Downtown place of opportunity, some say rebel-held areas, many of which have been battered by the country’s civil war and suffer acute shortages of food, electricity and medical services. But the new government faces huge challenges, starting with its ability to gain recognition from rebel factions on the ground.

DeKalb replaces outdated equipment • TOOLS Continued from page A1 Illinois was approved by a state Senate committee. In 2011, the American Civil Liberties Union published a report calling for more restrictions on drone use, noting different instances in which law enforcement used them. None was in Illinois, but various news reports have mentioned their growing popularity among law enforcement agencies. The main obstacle in acquiring drones, or any new piece of equipment, is funds. Local departments have limited money for any equipment purchases. “You have to balance what you’d like to do with what you can afford to do,” Scott said. “That’s the challenge everyone in law enforcement faces.” The sheriff’s office has a mobile command force and a special operations team, Scott said. It also acquired a new firearms simulator, something Scott was glad to get. DeKalb Police Chief Gene Lowery said his department is replacing outdated equipment. “I think there are several areas within our agencies, as well as within agencies throughout the area, if we took an honest assessment of the state of equipment and resources, [we’d find] much of our equipment and resources are dated and unavailable,” Lowery said. Through networks such as the Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System, DeKalb could get the drones, armor or ro-

Scott is one of the co-chairs of the Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System, which is a volunteer statewide network of officers and departments that pool resources and manpower. “Our whole agency is built on trust,” said Jim Page, the network’s executive director. “Today I’ll send somebody because tomorrow, I might need somebody.” Page said the network – and law enforcement in general – was swamped with money from the federal government after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Instead of using that money to buy big-ticket equipment, they invested in personnel. “We built regional SWAT teams, mobile field force teams, explosive ordnance teams, so we can get agencies working together instead of buying a community something,” Page said. “It’s aimed

at supporting these regional teams – vehicles, hazardous materials detectors ... things most police departments don’t have in their budgets.” But harsh economic realities have hit the Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System, too. Page said when the network started, it bought nine armed vehicles, one for each mobile force team. “We can’t do that today,” Page said. “We can’t replace those. When those ... break, that’s it. It’s done.” Page echoed Lowery’s comments on drones. “It’s not even on our menu,” he said. Lowery noted things could change over time. As technology becomes more pervasive, it also becomes cheaper. Lowery noted the price of calculators have gone down tremendously since their introduction. “Maybe in the future, you’ll see some of those technologies come into local law enforcement,” Lowery said.

Deputies made 158 DUI arrests in ’12 – fewer than in ’11 • BREATHALYZER Continued from page A1 “And we wouldn’t need to keep arresting the same people again and again for driving on a suspended license,” he said. Scott said his office made 158 DUI arrests last year – down 100 from 2011 – but arrests for driving on a suspended or revoked license are at an all-time high. Scott did not know how many of the revoked or suspended license cases were related to DUI offenses. Although legislation has yet to be drafted, DeKalb County State’s Attorney Richard Schmack believes it will include a breath-alcohol ignition system requirement for those coming off license revocations and seeking driving privileges for work purposes. He also said there could be stiffer penalties for those who opted not to install the system and are caught driving on suspended licenses. Most drunken driving offenders can choose whether they want to purchase a device under existing laws. Sycamore lawyer Richard Amato said he has had a number of clients opt for the device in DUI cases. It is a good alternative to losing driving privileges and risking further citations for driving unlicensed, he said. “Expanding the program should help all groups be sat-

isfied,” Amato said. “Especially in this area where there is very limited public transportation.” Amato said the devices are affordable because payment plans can be set up, and some financial relief is available if a person fills out an indigency form. The device costs roughly $110 a month and requires a $100 installation fee. In 2011, there were 3,271 instances statewide where in-vehicle Breathalyzers prevented people from starting and driv-

ing a vehicle because they registered a 0.025 or more. Henry Haupt, spokesman for the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office, said White is hoping to add cameras to the devices so a picture is taken every time the driver blows into the machine. Haupt said it would guarantee the offender is not circumventing the system by having someone else use it. “We believe this is the next frontier in the fight against drunk driving,” Haupt said.

Changes expected in downtown DeKalb

• AUCTION Continued from page A1 Steve Almburg, of Almburg Auctioneer in Malta, said the buildings will be auctioned separately. “We let the people auctioning it off decide that, and we’ll go from there,” Almburg said. The 36,150-square-foot building on Franklin Street has a basement and three parking lots that fit a total of 79 cars, according to the auctioneer’s website, The fair market value for that site has slipped from $1.1 million in 2010 to $986,000 in 2012, according to DeKalb County Assessor Robin Brunschon. The Grove Street building, which is the smaller of the two, has a partial unfinished basement, a leaky roof and a parking lot that fits more than 80 cars. Its fair market value dropped from $353,630 in 2010 to $312,928 in 2012, county records show. Meanwhile, DeKalb Clinic Chartered – the owner of the two buildings – paid $35,618.70 in property taxes in 2012 on the Franklin

way, where DeKalb’s main downtown shopping district also anticipates changes. Some new businesses are coming in – bridal shop Alexis Kay Designs at 128 E. Lincoln Highway and MCR Framing – which is returning to DeKalb after it left in 2011 – at 137 E. Lincoln Highway. And some are moving or have closed. Golden Thai Jasmine Restaurant at 251 E. Lincoln Highway closed earlier this month, and the owners of Primitive Chic will move to Wisconsin in May. No Strings Attached at 248 E. Lincoln Highway will move down the street to the Junction Center. Hopkins, the city’s economic development consultant, said downtown DeKalb is still a place of opportunity. The McDonald’s at 545 E. Lincoln Highway recently was demolished and will be renovated. “You can still be successful in the downtown area,” Hopkins said. “Now that McDonald’s has been demolished, maybe some of the people can take advantage of those McDonald’s customers for the next six to eight months.”

MARY JONB&T McADAMS I was born and raised in Sycamore, the daughter of the late Alvin and Roberta Wildenradt. I still reside in Sycamore with my husband Gary and daughter Taylor. Our son Christopher and his family live in Aurora. I graduated from Sycamore High School and attended Kishwaukee College. In 2000 I began my banking career with Resource Bank as a Branch Manager and moved from there to Old Second National Bank and most recently in April of 2012 joined the team of NB&T. I currently am the Assistant Vice President-Market Manager for the Coltonville Branch for NB&T. I have served the Sycamore Chamber as a member of the Board and most recently as an Ambassador. I am also a member of the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce. Following in my Dadʼs footsteps I have been involved with the Sycamore Park District as part of the Citizenʼs Advisory Committee. I chaired that committee for several years. I was also part of the Search Committee to hire a new Executive Director for the Park District. I am a Board Trustee member for Oak Crest Retirement Community in DeKalb. I have been on the Health Care Committee and the Community Relations Committee. I now Chair the Community Relations Committee and am part of the Executive Committee. I am an avid golfer and enjoy playing in outings with friends and family. I also enjoy gardening and being outdoors. I have actually participated in the Pumpkin Fest 10K Run several years and hopefully will continue to do that. My “bucket list” would be to run the whole thing. The DeKalb/Sycamore area has changed for the better and I am glad to be a part of it!

just about every time it rains to Flooding in Evergreen Village worse than reported conclude “it isn’t quite so bad,” To the Editor: The Daily Chronicle article from March 12 titled, “Rain, snow cause some flooding in DeKalb County,” contained a misleading figure about the standing water in the recent flooding at Evergreen Village Mobile Home Park. The article quotes Evergreen Village resident Wendy Ziegler as saying she’d noticed “about five inches of standing water in the worst areas of the park.” Respectfully, Ziegler may have encountered that depth of flooding farther away from the river, but those of us living closer to the river saw substantially more flooding. Ours was 12.3 inches at its peak, which is more than twice what was reported in the article. Others undoubtedly experienced still deeper flooding. The off-the-cuff estimate shouldn’t have been published as a representative figure. It may lead people who live in Sycamore and don’t deal with flooding

when constant flooding causes tremendous stress and hardship. After a few inches of rain, most people living in Sycamore undoubtedly don’t have to worry about where to park their car and whether or not they’ll have to evacuate, spending sleepless nights to carefully watch the water level, worrying the entire time about how high the water is going to rise and what consequences it will bring. Also, because of changes the state has made to the bridge in front of Evergreen Village, our concern is the tiniest amounts of rain – which wouldn’t have normally affected us pre-construction – will have more serious consequences. Already in this recent flood, some of the water that would normally have exited the park instead ended up doubling back and adding to the flooding we already had. Melanie Watkins Sycamore

Support for gay marriage crosses party lines In an opinion article in the Columbus Dispatch, Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman announced that he has changed his mind and now supports same-sex marriage. He wrote that on learning that one of his sons is gay, he “wrestled with how to reconcile my Christian faith with my desire for Will to have the same opportunities to pursue happiness and fulfillment as his brother and sister.” He is not the only prominent Republican to come to this view in this way. Former Vice President Dick Cheney is another. And at the Conservative Political Action Committee convention, a panel sponsored by the Competitive Enterprise Institute drew a large and approving crowd for a discussion labeled, “A Rainbow on the Right: Growing the Coalition, Bringing Tolerance Out of the Closet.” It’s clear now that support for same-sex marriage crosses party lines. That’s what one might expect, from polls that show a huge shift of opinion on this issue over the past two decades. In the early 1990s, large majorities opposed same-sex marriage. In 1996, Bill Clinton didn’t hesitate before signing the Defense of Marriage Act, which barred the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages. He now urges its repeal. In 2004, after the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court by a 4-3 margin discovered that the state’s 1780 Constitution required recognition of same-sex marriag-

VIEWS Michael Barone es, George W. Bush supported the Family Marriage Amendment, which would bar such marriages across the nation. That was never going to be ratified, but it did help Bush mobilize tradition-minded voters in states such as Ohio in the 2004 election. Now many polls show majorities or pluralities of Americans favor same-sex marriage. In last November, voters in Maine, Maryland and Washington approved same-sex marriage. Voters in Minnesota rejected a constitutional amendment that would ban it. That’s in contrast to the results in 30 states, all but one of them in 2008 or earlier, where voters approved similar amendments. Many of those states would surely vote the other way now, including California, whose 52 to 48 percent vote against samesex marriage in 2008 was overturned by federal trial and appeals courts in a case now before the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court could rule that the Constitution requires same-sex marriage everywhere. Or it could affirm the appeals court’s rationale, which applies to California only. Or it could say that the Constitution leaves this issue to the states. That’s the outcome that, as a supporter of same-sex marriage, I prefer.

Nine states and the District of Columbia have legalized same-sex marriage, most by legislative or popular vote. Another 11 states have no constitutional amendment barring it. And the 30 states with such constitutional amendments could repeal those amendments by popular vote. That would require continuing debate and discussion. A good place to start is for everyone to recognize that, as Portman writes, “well-intentioned people can disagree on the question of marriage for gay couples.” This is an issue that divides Americans not just on partisan or religious but also most conspicuously on generational lines. Young people, including many Republicans, heavily favor same-sex marriage. Elderly people, including many Democrats, heavily oppose it. If opinion continues to move toward same-sex marriage, it will be a tough issue for Republicans, since most of their voters currently are opposed. But it will be a tough issue for some Democrats, as well, since many black voters are staunchly opposed. But it’s an issue we can handle better if we respect and acknowledge the good faith of those on the other side.

Yes, Sen. Rob Portman reached his epiphany on gay marriage because of his son, Will, who told his parents he was gay two years ago when he was a college freshman. But that doesn’t discount the significance of the personal voyage the devout and reliably conservative Ohio Republican had to make to embrace marriage equality – or what it took for him to go so public with that journey last week. Not to mention the willingness of Will Portman, 21, now a college junior, to relinquish his own privacy in the matter. With his announcement Thursday, Portman became the only sitting Republican senator to favor same-sex marriage publicly. It’s likely there will be others, as more and more Americans recognize the moral, ethical and legal imperative to provide equality before the law to all of the nation’s citizens, regardless of sexual orientation. Also telling was Portman’s declaration that he and his wife, Jane, want Will to have a chance at the same committed, public union they’ve had for more than 26 years. In the states that legalized gay marriage at the ballot box last year, that was a key argument. And while Portman stressed he wasn’t seeking to dictate marriage ideas to others or override religious institutions’ objections to performing such ceremonies, he said he’d come around to the view that the institution of marriage could be strengthened by extending it to samesex couples. Portman told the group of reporters he’d gathered in his office Thursday that he wasn’t sure what the political fallout of his decision to go public might be. But could there already have been repercussions? In a CNN interview, Portman said that when he was being vetted last year as Mitt Romney’s possible running mate, he told Romney he had a gay son. He said the campaign told him that wasn’t the reason he was not picked. Portman was candid Thursday about a primary reason he went public: With two high-profile cases on marriage equality headed to the U.S. Supreme Court soon for oral arguments, Portman didn’t want to have to equivocate about his stance on the issue when his thinking, and his heart, had changed. “The overriding message of love and compassion that I take from the Bible, and certainly the Golden Rule, and the fact that I believe we are all created by our maker – that has influenced me in terms of my change on this issue,” he told reporters. The Cleveland Plain Dealer


Don’t inhibit voters’ rights Compared with what some Americans have to tolerate on election day, registering to vote is relatively painless. That’s partly thanks to the National Voter Registration Act, a 1993 law at the root of a case the Supreme Court began hearing Monday. The state of Arizona argues that it should be allowed to subvert the law’s obvious purpose. The court shouldn’t let it. In 1993, Congress looked at the “complicated maze” of often confusing and sometimes discriminatory state election rules, and it found that “unfair registration laws and procedures can have a direct and damaging effect on voter participation in elections for federal office.” So lawmakers established national standards. Americans could register to vote when getting driver’s licenses, which gave the act its unofficial name: the “motor voter” law. Congress also required every state to accept a simple, common, mail-in registration form drafted by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission. The record indicates that Congress meant these to be among the “procedures that will increase the number of eligible citizens who register to vote in elections for federal office.” In 2004, Arizona voters approved a state law requiring evidence of U.S. citizenship in order to register to vote. As a result, state elections officials no longer accepted standard federal registration forms unless accompanied by copies of passports, birth certificates or other proof of citizenship. Native American and Hispanic groups complained, and now the dispute is before the high court. Arizona argues that federal law doesn’t bar the state from adding to the registration requirements listed on the federal form. It points out that Congress acknowledged maintaining the integrity of federal elections as another legitimate and important goal. Yet any reasonable reading of lawmakers’ intent requires the conclusion that they did not want to replace one confusing array of specific state requirements with another confusing array of specific state requirements. In fact, Congress rejected a provision that would have expressly permitted states to ask for evidence of citizenship during registration. On the legal merits, the justices shouldn’t have trouble siding against Arizona. But what of the policy principle? Noncitizens shouldn’t be allowed to vote. But neither should citizens be discouraged from the exercise of their most essential right – even citizens who don’t have identification deemed suitable by Arizona. States should be instituting reforms to expand access to the franchise, not narrow it. Universal voter registration, in which the states take responsibility to register all who are eligible, would be a good start. The Washington Post

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. – U.S. Bill of Rights, First Amendment

OAK CREST DeKalb Area Retirement Center

“Just do it...” I know what you’re thinking. Because, I thought it myself. I figured I could just put off this whole retirement thing for another year or maybe two. Then it hit me. All the things I will need to do to prepare for the big decision and move – like sorting, packing and selling a home; I’ll still have to do. Only when that time comes,

Kay Johnson

I’ll be another year or two older. Let’s face it, we’re not getting any younger. I looked at other places around Elburn but none of them felt like home. Then I came out to Oak Crest. I toured the grounds, visited with the staff, compared prices and amenities and just knew. Oak Crest was more than just a place to retire, it would be my home. The day I moved in I said, “I wouldn’t have wanted to wait even one more day.” I am so glad that I didn’t put off until tomorrow, what I could do today. Kay Johnson, Resident since June 2011

For Rose, it’s time to make return AP photo

NFL to pay $42M for using retired players’ images MINNEAPOLIS – The NFL has agreed to pay $42 million as part of a settlement with a group of retired players who challenged the league over using their names and images without their consent. The league will use the money to fund a “common good” trust over the next eight years that will help retired players with an array of issues including medical expenses, housing and career transition. The settlement also establishes a licensing agency for retired players to ensure they are compensated for the use of their identities in promotional materials. “We look forward to building an unprecedented new relationship with retired players that will benefit everybody, especially those who need extra medical or financial assistance,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Monday in a statement issued by the league. The settlement could improve the frosty relationship between the NFL and many of its retired players who have felt left behind as the league has exploded in popularity over the last decade. Former stars like Mike Ditka, Jim Brown and others have lobbied hard for more help dealing with retired players’ mounting financial difficulties and medical expenses, and for a bigger role in negotiations of labor agreements. Brown called the settlement a “landmark for those who really need it.” “We were able to finalize this agreement and for the first time in history retired players will be represented at the table,” Brown said at a press conference in Arizona, where owners are holding meetings this week. – Wire report

CHICAGO – Derrick Rose is not lazy. Rose is not a bum, a loafer, a lowlife or a do-nothing. He is not a slug, a softie, a washout or a might-havebeen. But he needs to play. Nothing changed Monday as the Bulls hosted the Denver Nuggets in game No. 66 of the NBA’s 82-game regular season. Rose took part in another lengthy pregame workout but was not in uniform for the game, and his teammates tried their best without him. Today, as with yesterday and so many days before that, Bulls fans are left to ask

VIEWS Tom Musick the same question. When will Rose return? It’s time. For those who might be new here, let me reiterate that I am a gigantic fan of Rose as both a person and a player. No athlete in this city – no, not even Patrick Kane – can dazzle a crowd or energize his team quite like the point guard from the city’s South Side. Maybe you think that NBA superstars are divas

Next for the Bulls Portland at Bulls, 7 p.m. Thursday, CSN, AM1000 (and some of them are), but Rose is a relentless worker. Yes, he was blessed with amazing God-given ability, but he elevated himself to superstar status with countless hours of running, lifting and practicing. But he needs to play.

Indian Creek’s Gullstrand aiming for better state finish By BRIAN HOXSEY


HABBONA – Coming into this track season, Indian Creek’s Jake Gullstrand has set his goals high, and for good reason. As a junior, Gullstrand, advanced to the IHSA state finals with a second-place finish at the Class 1A Seneca Sectional in the 400-meter dash. He followed that by advancing to the finals with a time of 50.87 seconds in the preliminaries, ultimately

finishing seventh in the finals. This season the senior is striving for much more. “In my goals, I see myself at the top spot,” Gullstrand said. “You have to put Inside yourself there, if you Team preview see yourself lower, capsules on you’re going to end up short of your goal.

back to the state finals and one key will be for him to stay healthy,” Bell said. “Last year, he spent a lot of time on his strength to have strong finishes. That is a huge key in the 400, not fading at the end.” Another goal for Gullstrand, who holds the school record in the 200 meters, would be breaking the 18year old Indian Creek bench mark of 49.0 in the 400. He is confident he can do it.

Former Boise Hawks manager Mark Johnson will take the reins of the Kane County Cougars this spring.

Mark Johnson drew rave reviews for his handling of a young, up-and-coming group of Cubs prospects while managing the club’s Short-A affiliate at Boise (Idaho) last summer. He expects to see many of the same players he guided to the Northwest League championship series in 2012 in his first season with the Cougars, which opens at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark on April 4. Johnson knows there’s an advantage to familiarity, especially with many players

among the group beginning their first full professional seasons. That’s why he doesn’t plan to deviate from a simple approach. The schedule is expanded and the proximity to Chicago brings a built-in challenge, but that won’t affect what Johnson stresses before each game. “Your routine has got to be spot on day-to-day, every single day. Being mentally prepared when you’re starting at this level is critical,” Johnson said. “Obviously, we’re going to be physically prepared, but mentally going into the first season of pro ball and cold weather

and in Chicago, it’s vital.” Johnson managed in a far different atmosphere in Boise the past two seasons. While Cubs allegiance stretches throughout North America, fans didn’t quite flock to Idaho to see the organization’s future as they are expected to in Geneva. The Hawks’ average attendance of 2,399 fans in 38 openings ranked sixth in the eightteam Northwest League, more than 2,000 spectators behind the league-leading Spokane (Wash.) Indians.

Safe hunting, firearm handling class set for April Area residents will have an opportunity to learn the basic principles of safe hunting and firearm handling at the upcoming Illinois Department of Natural Resources Hunter Education class. This class will be held at the Sycamore Sportsmen and Conservation Club on Motel Road. Dates and times are April 1, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. April 4 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. and April 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Students must attend all three classes and pass an exam. This free class includes instruction in wildlife management, firearm safety, bow-hunting, hunter ethics, muzzle-loading firearms, game identification, first aid, survival techniques and hunting regulations. A 1996 Illinois state law requires that anyone born on or after Jan. 1, 1980 must successfully complete a hunter education course before they can purchase an Illinois hunting license. Also, many westeran states now require non-residents to have a Hunter Education Certificate before issuing them an out-ofstate hunting license. For more information about this class, call the coordinating instructor, Richard Carlson at 815-758-2773.

Jackson leads Cubs over Padres PEORIA, Ariz. – Had the offseason gone differently, Edwin Jackson could have been pitching against the Cubs on Monday instead of for them. Jackson allowed one run and three hits in six innings as the Cubs rested most of their regulars in a 5-2 win over the San Diego Padres. “I’m getting closer and closer to game mode,” Jackson said. “The goal is to keep heading in a positive direction as we get closer to the regular season.” Jackson left his No. 36 jersey behind at the Cubs’ clubhouse in Mesa and wore No. 82 instead. He struck out three and walked one. San Diego pursued him but wouldn’t guarantee a fourth year, and Jackson signed a $52 million, four-year deal with the Cubs, his ninth organization. – Staff, wire reports

Amended bill limiting contact moving forward By JEFF ARNOLD When a proposed state law limiting contact among football players was met with stern opposition last month, the bill’s sponsor pledged to call an audible once she had more information. State Rep. Carol Sente (D-Lincolnshire) will move forward with an amended version of House Bill 1205, which would confine full-padded football practices to two days a week during the season and prohibit it completely during the offseason and summer camps. Sente will present the bill to the state education committee Wednesday in Springfield.

The amendments expand the number of allowed full-contact days from one to two days a week from Sente’s original bill. The revisions of the bill come after coaches, parents and IHSA officials criticized the legislation at public forums for being too vague – especially when it came to determining what constitutes contact or how it would be policed. Coaches also argued that by limiting contact in practice, lawmakers would be putting players at risk because coaches would lose time to teach proper tackling methods. Still, Sente insists there has to be limits to cut down not only on concussions, but on repeated blows to the head that could lead to other health issues lat-

er in life. A Cleveland Clinic study released this month showed that of 67 college football players studied, researchers discovered the more hits to the head they absorbed, the higher levels of the brain protein S-100B that leak into the bloodstream after the head injury. The particular protein is found normally in the brain and researchers believe when it is found in a blood test, it is an indicator of a concussion. Sente points to limits being put on full-contact drills by the NFL and organizations such as the Chicagoland Youth Football League and Pop Warner. “So why is the group in the middle not doing as much?” Sente said in a phone inter-

PREP BOYS TRACK AND FIELD TEAM PREVIEW CAPSULES DeKALB Coach: Tim Holt (ninth season) Key returners: Drew Paszotta, jr., sprints; Dre Brown, so., sprints; Marc Dubrick, sr., distance; Tyler Peterson, sr., hurdles; Lee Parrish, sr., hurdles Impact newcomers: Eriq Torrey, so.; Jonathan Bell, jr.; Isaac Hietanen, jr.; Jared Smith, jr.; James Robinson Outlook: The Barbs managed a third-place finish at the conference indoor meet and were only five points behind Geneseo for second. Sprints look to be the strongest aspect for DeKalb this season. Dre Brown was the team MVP last year as a freshman and will look to score even more points in the sprints as a sophomore. Holt’s take: “We have more depth in our lineup. Our numbers went up from about 40 members last season to 65 this year. We have some good sprinters. We also have very good distance runners.” GENOA-KINGSTON Coach: Brent Bacon (second season) 2012 accomplishments: Won G-K Invitational, defended team title at Rocket Relays Key returners: Danny Thorsen, sr., throws; Gabe Williams, sr., sprints; Tim Benvenuti, sr., jumps; Jonah Callahan, jr., hurdles Impact newcomers: Chad Jureczek, sr., sprints; Chance Franckowiak, fr., 400; Ian Fell, fr., HJ; Jared Barton, fr., HJ Outlook: The Cogs return a solid core of athletes even after graduating a big senior class from last season. Bacon is excited about his depth, giving him a lot of options to change up his lineup and rest people if necessary. He said the underclassmen possess a lot of “unpolished talent.” Bacon’s take: We have a few guys returning, but also a few guys who have never done track before and waited until their senior year. This freshman class is huge. We have 17 freshmen out this year. They each are exciting to watch.”

HINCKLEY-BIG ROCK Coach: Greg Burks (12th season) 2012 accomplishments: Bill Weissinger took ninth at state in the high jump. Key returners: Michael Bayler, sr., 400 / TJ; Mack Carls, sr., SP, Discus; Andrew Klambauer, sr., LJ / TJ; Bill Weissinger, sr., HJ; T.J. Gavin, jr., sprints / 300 hurdles; Ty Binkley, so., SP / Discus; Jeremey Perales, so., distance Impact newcomers: Christian Johnsen, sr.; Jared Madden, sr.; Zach Michels, sr.; Austin Planthaber, jr.; Connor Nelson, so.; Sean Gavin, fr.; Nic Mann, fr.; Zach McNanna, fr.; Kobe Newman, fr. Outlook: Weissinger will hope to get back to the state meet again in his senior season. Michels and Madden were part of the senior core that led H-BR’s soccer team to state and the basketball team to back-to-back Little Ten titles. Their athleticism should be a welcome addition to the Royals’ squad. Burks’ take: “We have some returning athletes that have been big point scorers the past several years. We have some new talent also. It will be interesting to see what the newcomers can do as the season goes along.” INDIAN CREEK Coach: Dane Bell (ninth season) 2012 accomplishments: Jake Gullstrand took seventh at the Class 1A meet in the 400. Key returners: Jake Gullstrand, sr., sprints; Gavin Eberly, jr., hurdles; Mitch Lave, sr., relays Impact newcomers: Shawn Agler, fr., sprints; Evan Ostrander, fr., distance; Jonathan Farnsworth, fr., middle distance Outlook: Gullstrand has high expectations in the 200 and 400. He’ll hope to at least get back to state and improve on his seventh-place finish in the 400. A smaller team will allow some of Indian Creek’s new freshmen to quickly earn varsity experience. Bell’s take: “With a very low turnout this year we will be looking to compete against many schools

on the team level. We will be shooting for the top individual performances we can manage.” KANELAND Coach: Eric Baron (eighth season) 2012 accomplishments: Undefeated in dual meets, Kane County champions, Class 2A Rochelle Sectional champions. 11th in Class 2A state meet. Key returners: Dylan Pennington, sr., 200; Conor Johnson, sr., 800; Kory Harner, sr., pole vault; Brandon Cottier, sr., 100 / 200; Dylan Nauert, jr., 100 / 300H; Nathaniel Kucera, jr., 400 / 800; Nate Dyer, jr., SP / discus; Kyle Carter, jr., 800; Brandon Bishop, jr., 100 / 200; Luis Acosta, jr. Impact newcomers: Drew David, jr.; Brandon Cruz, fr.; Tanner Robertson, fr. Outlook: Kaneland returns 10 state qualifiers from last season’s team, including a number of members from the Knights’ three relays that made it down state. Dylan Nauert should compete for a state championship in the 300 hurdles after taking sixth last year and Baron’s take: “We should be contending for a title in any meet we compete in this year.” SYCAMORE Coach: Pete Piccony (sixth season) 2012 accomplishments: Sycamore qualified three individuals and two relays for the Class 2A state meet. Key returners: David Emmert, sr., distance; Dion Hooker, so., sprints; Mark Stice, jr., distance; Logan Wright, jr., jumps; Outlook: Dion Hooker and Mark Stice both got to the second day of the state tournament as underclassmen last year. Hooker was the fastest freshman in the 100 and also competed on the Spartans’ 4x400 relay. Piccony’s take: “Solid young team. Varsity needs to lead and young athletes will need to step up and take some leadership roles. Core of team is [sophomores] and juniors.” – Ross Jacobson,

Gullstrand looks to break team record • GULLSTRAND Continued from page B1 “It will take a lot of hard work and dedication, but I know I can beat that record this year,” Gullstrand said. “I really need to work on my finishing, it’s not the best, but I’m improving.” Bell is also hoping to see the long-standing record fall this spring. “He has really been try-

ing to break that 50-second barrier for a long time,” Bell said. “I’m really hoping to see him dip into that upper 49’s range and I feel he’ll get there.” The Indian Creek coach is also expecting good things out of another senior and has been pleasantly surprised at the performance of a freshman. “Senior Mitch Lave has been sort of a jack-of-all trades for us in his four

years,” said Bell. “He has tried to fill in at whatever event the team needed. Whether it has been sprints, distance, or the long jump, he has really done a great job for us and I’m looking forward to the same this year. Shawn Agler is a sprinter that we haven’t dialed in yet what his best event is yet with only having a couple of meets. He has shown consistency and is a nice solid runner.”

view Monday. The amended bill characterizes full-padded practices as being workouts when players are wearing a helmet, shoulder pads, padded pants and cleats. Full contact practices would be at the coach’s discretion during the preseason. Marty Hickman, the IHSA’s executive director, said after a public forum in Vernon Hills last month that the proposed legislation is heavy-handed and that the IHSA already is doing enough to address head injuries. Sente said the new version of her bill represents a compromise and said most coaches she spoke to don’t allow full-contact drills more than two days a week as it is.

Today marks 325 days since Rose’s injury • ROSE Continued from page B1 The reason for Rose’s absence no longer is physical. It’s mental. Rose acknowledged as much seven days ago when the Bulls were on a West Coast road trip. He explained to reporters that he could “do everything” during practice but remained hesitant to test his surgically repaired left knee in a game. “It’s just me having the confidence to do it,” Rose said. “I’m just trying to feel normal. When I’m out there and not thinking and just reacting, that’s when I know I’ll be ready.” For Rose to feel normal, he must return to the court. There’s no way around it. Rose needs to drive to the rim, crash into an opponent, fall to the hardwood and jump to his feet for him to know he can absorb contact. He needs to freeze a defender on a crossover dribble for him to know he can change direction without re-injury. He needs to endure a rusty game, or five, or 10, before he can adjust fully to game speed. In other words, he needs to play. The Bulls have been careful not to push Rose too hard during his lengthy recovery process. The team’s leadership trio of John Paxson, Gar Forman and Tom Thibodeau know how hard Rose has been working, and they know how important he is to the team’s future. Yet it’s clear that Rose remains worried about his past. Today marks 325 days since Rose tore his ACL in the Bulls’ playoff opener April 28. It marks 311 days – more than 10 months – since he underwent surgery. Rose has taken part in full-contact practices since late January. “If I would rush back and something was to happen,” Rose said last week in Los Angeles, “[then] everybody would say, ‘Why did you rush back?’ ” It’s impossible to eliminate the risk of injury for Rose or anyone else. One awkward step could cause a knee injury. One ill-timed landing on another player’s foot could equal a badly twisted ankle. One hard fall could mean a sprained wrist or a bruised tailbone or any number of other problems. Those possibilities should not prevent Rose from trusting his doctors – and his knee. Rose is paid to play. He is cleared to play. He should play.

Shortly after the season started, Cubs director of player development Brandon Hyde visited Boise and returned a frustrating correspondence to senior vice president of scouting and player development Jason McLeod. There were rudimentary onfield mistakes and an over-

all unprofessionalism in the clubhouse, among other things. That is, until Johnson had the chance to explain his fundamentals-first philosophy after the first few games. “They weren’t performing early on and something clicked, and it was a totally different team to watch the last month than it was the first month. Completely different team,” Hyde said. “And

the staff just did an amazing job of staying with it, staying with the process, staying with the development. But also, the confidence kind of fed with that group, and it was an extremely exciting team to watch the last month.” McLeod soon agreed, balancing Hyde’s report with his own observations from a late-season visit. Whether it was their clubhouse comportment or more

Challenge Update

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Kyle Larson’s first chance to get a big win in NASCAR ended with him claiming a controversial win. With a shot at grabbing his first Nationwide Series win Saturday, he wasn’t going to make that same mistake again. Especially not against Kyle Busch.

Busch holds off Larson at Bristol’s finish line AP Auto Racing Writer JENNA FRYER (AP)

Larson stalked Busch over the closing laps around Bristol Motor Speedway waiting to make a move. It came as they closed in on the finish line, and Larson made a last-gasp push on the high side that fell just short as Busch held on for his second win of the season. But in chasing the win the right way, the 20-year-old Larson cleaned up some of the criticism that had followed him from Daytona last month after spinning C.E. Falk III on the final lap of the “Battle at the Beach” late model race. “You certainly want to try to win races the right way,” Busch said.“He played it smart today. That was good on his end. I think a lot of people have been looking at him to try to see if he’s going to be to a wrecker or a checker. Today he didn’t get the checkers, but that’s how you get them. You drive into the corner, or drive into the back of me, I’m going to be here for a while and if he keeps coming up through the ranks, he’s not going to have fun dealing with me every week. “But right now? I’m going to race him as hard as he raced me, but just as clean as he raced me because he didn’t put a fender on me all day.”

Larson had his win over Falk in the back of his head during the closing laps at Bristol as he looked for a place to try to grab the win. Although he has received high praise from Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart and Kasey Kahne as NASCAR’s next big star, his move in the “Battle of the Beach” caused many top Sprint Cup drivers to openly criticize Larson. “I was pretty aggressive at the “Battle of the Beach” and I didn’t want to have anything like that happen again and have more people look at me,” Larson said. “I don’t race that way and didn’t want to move (Busch). I wanted to outrace him. I’d gain a little more respect that way, and it made for a better finish, I think.” Indeed it did, as both drivers closed in on lapped cars as they neared the finish line. Busch chose the low line and Larson went high, then tried to squeeze his way past Busch. Larson’s car bounced off of both the wall and Busch’s car, but he was nipped at the finish line by Busch by .023 seconds. “He’s got a lot of talent,” Busch said. “Obviously, he’s already made a name for himself and he’s got a lot going for him. I’m 27 and I feel like I’m getting old. Every time I looked in the rear view mirror he caught me, so I stopped looking. I didn’t want to know where he was at.” It was Busch’s fifth career Nationwide victory at Bristol, tying him with Kevin Harvick for the most in the series. Busch has a series-record 53 wins, and two in the last four weeks after going winless last season.

Sisters may share the same pregnancy issue Dear Abby: I’m in my early 20s, happily married and financially secure. My husband and I have been discussing having children. My problem is my sister has been trying to start a family for three years, to no avail because she has infertility issues. These issues run in our family, and there is a 75 percent chance that I will have the same problem. Should I talk to my sister about my trying to get pregnant, or wait until I’m pregnant and break the news to her then? Since I may have the same problem she’s having, I don’t want to discuss something with her that may never happen. Any thoughts? – Don’t Want To Hurt Her Dear Don’t Want To Hurt Her: “Springing” news that you are

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips pregnant would be more of a jolt to her than hearing that you’re trying. I see no reason to keep this a secret from your sister. Because problems conceiving run in your family, talking about it might be helpful to both of you. If you do become pregnant, she may want to consult your doctor. If it doesn’t happen, the two of you can emotionally support each other. Dear Abby: After 20 years of marriage, I am now again in the dating world – and wow, have things ever changed! What happened to the days when men would open doors,

kiss your cheek, or try to impress you by sending flowers, complimenting you and chasing you to go out with them? Nowadays, the guys expect me to impress them, call them first, etc. What are your thoughts on this? I have been on numerous dates, and out of all of them only one man acted like an old-school gentleman. Unfortunately, he was only 30. I’m in my mid-40s. I’m not super-rich, but I have a stable job, good benefits and two well-behaved boys. What’s wrong with me? – New To The Dating World Dear New: Nothing is “wrong” with you. In fact, if men still chased you, complimented you and didn’t expect to drag you to bed in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, you were

lucky! Old-fashioned romance started dying out in the late 1960s and early ‘70s. As women became more aggressive, men became more passive. If you like the way the 30-year-old man treats you, please don’t let the age difference get in the way. Grab him, because his kind is now a rarity. Dear Abby: On Feb. 5 you referred to someone as a “controlling, slave-driving witch.” A lot of people in the Wiccan community, practitioners of Wicca, use the term “witch” with positive connotations. There are several slur words that I heard growing up that I would never dream of using these days because of how society has changed. Please help to spread the word. It took years of fighting

the system, but we are now recognized by the VA and included on headstones with other religious symbols. And by the way, in our religion, the word “warlock” is an insult that means “oath breaker.” “Witch” is a gender-neutral name. – Proud Male Witch And Veteran

Dear Proud Male Witch And Veteran: I hope that you and other members of the Wiccan religion will forgive my lapse, which was made out of ignorance. I used the term “witch” as a substitute for the word I wanted to use because my editors told me that referring to a woman in that way is not acceptable in family newspapers.

Electrical firestorm occurs during siezure Dear Dr. K: I have a friend with epilepsy. Can you explain what happens in her brain? Dear Reader: Epilepsy is a condition that causes repeated seizures, but sometimes seizures are not caused by epilepsy. It’s not uncommon, for example, for very young children to have seizures when they get a high fever. Called febrile seizures, they usually occur once or a few times and go away forever. Seizures are caused by sudden, brief changes in the brain’s electrical activity. Our brains have hundreds of billions of cells. The ones that do the work – the ones that help us to think, remember, see, hear, smell, feel and

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff cause us to move – talk to each other through electrical and chemical signals. What happens in the brain when someone has a seizure is an electrical firestorm. Brain cells fire uncontrollably at up to four times their normal rate. There are two main types of seizures. A generalized seizure involves the entire brain. A partial seizure affects only part of the brain – but it can turn into a generalized seizure. The brain’s electrical

activity can be seen on an electroencephalogram (EEG). Metal electrodes attached to the outside of the head detect the brain’s electrical activity and draw the patterns of that activity – patterns commonly called brain waves. (I’ve put an example of a normal EEG, along with what an EEG looks like during a generalized and partial seizure, on my website.) Seizures temporarily affect the way a person behaves, moves, thinks or feels. The kind of seizure that you see most often – on TV or in movies – is a generalized, grand mal seizure. It’s very dramatic: A person loses consciousness, falls to the ground and temporarily stops

breathing. All body muscles tense up at once for a few seconds; the head and shoulders bend backward. Then, just as suddenly, the arms and legs start jerking and sometimes the face starts twitching. After a few minutes, the person wakes up. However, he or she can be confused and “out of it” for several hours thereafter. But seizures can be more subtle. A person may just stare blankly and blink their eyes. Nothing is getting through; you can’t reach them. Or a person may suddenly begin to do strange things, such as emptying the contents of a dresser drawer onto the floor. Or a person may suddenly have

uncontrollable jerking of one side of the face, an arm or a leg, along with a brief loss of awareness of the world. After a seizure, a person has no memory of the episode. For most people, seizures can be controlled with medication. If you are with your friend when she has a seizure, call the doctor. A seizure that lasts more than 20 minutes is a medical emergency. What causes seizures in the first place? We know, for example, that brain scars, tumors or infections can cause seizures. But how they cause the electrical firestorm remains uncertain.

User believes pot is less harmful than alcohol Dr. Wallace: I enjoy smoking marijuana, but I don’t drink any alcohol. I’m unhappy to say that alcohol is a legal drug that can be purchased and taxed almost anywhere if the buyer is at least 21. But marijuana is also considered a drug but is declared to be illegal. I honestly believe that in the next year or two, it will be legal to purchase marijuana. This action will solve two major problems. First, the taxes gathered on marijuana sales will help lower the national debt. And second, legal sales of marijuana will put a serious dent in the now criminal activity of growing and selling marijuana. I also

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace believe that marijuana use is less harmful to your body than alcohol. Is this true? What chemical causes the marijuana user to get high? – Nameless, Tupelo, Miss. Nameless: In his booklet, “Marijuana: Time for a Closer Look,” Curtis Janeczek, who was a senior medical student at Ohio State University, provided an update on the scientific research on the use of marijuana. He included information about

8ASTROGRAPH By BERNICE BEDE OSOL Newspaper Enterprise Association

TODAY – In the coming months, you might be able to acquire a number of nice things that you don’t need but have long wanted. If you can honestly afford them, you don’t have to feel guilty for spoiling yourself a little. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Our close friends often have a strong influence on us, and you’re no different. If your companions have poor judgment, you’re likely to follow them down a blind alley. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Disappointment is likely if you expect your co-workers to do certain jobs, duties or responsibilities that were assigned to you. Either be self-reliant or offer to do something for them in return. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – You’re still not out of the woods when it comes to a financial obligation, so continue to be prudent in the management of your resources. Don’t take the approach of solvency as a sign to spend. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Wanting to be your own person is credible, provided you’re not overly insistent. Don’t make everyone else miserable by only having it your way. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Because you’ve based your evaluations on logical assumptions, your conclusions have been pretty accurate so far. Don’t start to rely upon instincts or emotions that could be misleading. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – There’s no accounting for the surprises of kindness, but it isn’t likely that you’ll get something from someone whom you’ve refused to help in the past. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – You can make a good impression on another if you act natural and be yourself. Conversely, if you attempt to convey an image that is false, you’ll get bad reviews. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – It won’t be enough to just feel compassion if a friend comes to you for help. You need to help in ways that put substance behind your sentiments. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – When with a group of friends, don’t think they won’t pick up on your longings to be elsewhere if you can’t simply enjoy the moment. Either relax or leave. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Do not allow yourself to be put in a position where someone else is making decisions for you. You need to be your own boss for a while. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Even though your restlessness could be rather severe, don’t ignore your work or responsibilities. There will be ugly consequences. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Although your heart might be in the right place, you might, in actuality, be too wasteful and ineffective to utilize your resources smartly.

Tetrahydrocannabinol or “THC” for short, which is the chemical that causes a marijuana user to get high. Alcohol and pot have little in common. Alcohol leaves the body within six hours after drinking. When smoking pot, THC is stored in cells and experiments show that it takes the body from two weeks to a month to get rid of the chemical. Marijuana is poison to cells. Dozens of experiments have proved that pot messes up cell growth and cell division in humans and this includes lung cells, blood cells, sperm cells and brain cells. I’m always amazed by the high volume of people who


require a drug or drugs to get “high.” Those who get “high” the “old-fashioned way,” without the use of drugs, share an abundance of wonderful adjectives including loving, caring, helping, teaching, honoring, serving, etc. I think you get the message. Dr. Wallace: I loaned my ex-boyfriend $150 to help him buy a car. He said he would pay me back $50 a month for four months. The last $50 would have been interest on the loan. At the time I loaned him the money, I thought we were deeply in love. Now we are no longer an item! We split up a month ago, but Pedro still promised to pay me – eventually.

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Well, I’m convinced that “eventually” might never come. How do I sue him to get my money? I really need it. – Rosa, Laredo, Tex. Rosa: Sorry, but unless you have a promissory note from him stating that he will repay the loan of $150 plus $50 interest, your chances of forcing him to repay you are nil. Continue to ask for the return of your money if you are in contact with him, and be happy if he repays even a part of what he owes you. Chalk off what you don’t get back as the high price of learning.

Try one chance, with another ready Jim Rohn, an entrepreneur and motivational speaker who died in 2009, said, “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” If you don’t design your own declarer-play plan, chances are you’ll fall into the defenders’ plan. And guess what they have in store for you? Down one. In this deal, how should South play in four spades after West leads the diamond jack? South was sorely tempted to rebid three no-trump, wondering if his side could take nine tricks in either no-trump or spades. But here that would not have worked well. East would have led the club queen, and the defenders would have taken four clubs and one heart for down one. South starts with four potential losers: one heart, one diamond and two clubs. He has nine winners: six spades, one heart and two diamonds. Where might the 10th trick come from? He can get an extra trick if West has the heart ace or East has the club ace. Declarer must take the first trick in his hand with the ace, retaining dummy’s king as a later entry. He draws one round of trumps, then plays a heart to dummy’s queen. If East could take the trick with the ace, South would need East also to hold the club ace; otherwise, declarer would be condemned to down one. Here, though, the queen holds. South then draws trumps and leads his second heart, establishing his 10th trick. Plan the play at trick one.
