Housing among issues in 4th Ward race By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – How to reduce problems associated with rental housing is one of the issues facing the two candidates in the race for 4th Ward alderman in Batavia. Fourth Ward Alderman James Volk, who has been on the Batavia City Council for 18 years, is running against Jamie Batavia Main- Saam Street board member Jamie Saam. Saam previously ran for the Batavia City Council in 2011. Volk said problems associated with rental housing are a continuing problem in the 4th Ward. “We seem to have a lot more legal noncomforming rental units,” he said. “That’s what I say are the bulk of the complaints from people that live over there, rental units with cars in the yard and trash everywhere and home maintenance issues.” Saam said those types of problems happen on nonrental properties as well, “but we have to do what we can to pro-

tect the rest of the community.” Volk said he wants to make Batavia more walkable and bikeable. “We’ve got to get people out of their cars,” Volk said. “We want to get people out there, walking and enjoying the community. I walk down to City Hall all the time for every meeting, and I’m a fair weather bike commuter. James It’s good exerVolk cise, and you save a gallon of gas a day. And that’s real money these days.” Saam said she would like to increase public transportation options for residents. “With us only having a Pace bus that goes on Route 31, I have quite a few people in my ward who commute and would love a bit of an easier way to get to the train, instead of having to drive everywhere,” Saam said. They also have opinions on development plans for Walgreens, which plans to move its 12,650-square-foot store at 138 W. Wilson St. in the Batavia Plaza in downtown Batavia into a 15,000-square-foot building with a drive-thru just east

of East China Inn in the shopping center. The plans for the store have elicited debate because the store would be set back about 70 feet from Wilson Street. The city’s zoning code requires a front building setback to be 10 feet or less. “Walgreens has asked for variances, and to my mind, they have not produced the evidence necessary for this front setback,” Volk said. “I’m willing to work with them, but they have not worked with us. “They’ve made some presentations, and they keep coming back to the same thing. I’m willing to work very hard on it, but I don’t see the cooperation coming from the other side.” Saam said she has been supportive of the Walgreens project since the beginning. “I think the loss of it would be a tremendous loss to the city as a whole,” she said. “You do

need those bigger, stable stores to attract other smaller businesses.” Saam said she is in favor of the proposed setback. “From watching the plan adjust through time, I think that Walgreens has done a really good job trying to work with the city and trying to adjust their plans,” she said. They also had thoughts about how to keep electric rates stable in light of the city buying more power than it needs from the Prarie State power plant. The city has looked at selling off some power because it doesn’t need as much as expected because of the economic slowdown. “Prairie State, and I don’t think a lot of people are grasping this, is a 30-year commitment,” Volk said. “It’s higher than the average market sometimes now. But it will cross over and be consistently cheaper in the not-too-distant future. When that happens, I don’t know.” Saam said the city “can’t go back in time and erase what’s been done. It’s just a matter of the city selling the excess power if they can, and possibly selling more. The city can keep the rates stable by selling excess power and looking for alternate sources.”

MAPLE PARK

7 candidates vie for spots on board By STEPHANIE KOHL editorial@kcchronicle.com MAPLE PARK – When Maple Park voters hit the polls April 9, they will be asked to choose from seven candidates for five seats on the Village Board. Running for three open seats to four-year terms are incumbents Terry Borg and Gregory Cutsinger and newcomers Lucas Goucher and Brian Kinane. Running for two open seats for two-year unexpired terms are incumbents Debra Armstrong and Stephan Nowak and newcomer Christopher Higgins. Cutsinger has served on the Village Board for two years. He was appointed to fill a vacancy. If elected, Cutsinger said he will continue to be an honest and trustworthy member of the

board and will work to attract businesses to the village to generate tax revenue. Borg has served on the Village Board for 12 years and said he still has the enthusiasm and desire to serve. If re-elected, Borg will focus on maintaining infrastructure with limiting funding, planning for the future and investing in village personnel. Kinane has no previous political experience, but wants to get involved in the village and the direction the village is going. He cites his background in construction and degree in mechanical engineering as making him a good candidate. If elected, his top priorities are “making sure the village is moving forward instead of backward in terms of repair to existing structures [and] roads, investigating how to

He said his background in business and finance would be a great addition to the board, and he has the energy and time to dedicate to the position. If elected, he wants to focus on “keeping the vintage appeal of our community,” adding

City moves forward with North River Street arch By ERIC SCHELKOPF BATAVIA – A plan to construct an arch at the entry to the newly reconstructed North River Street is moving forward. The Batavia City Council Community Development Committee on Tuesday recommended approving WW Timber’s design for the arch at a cost not to exceed $93,960. The recommendation now will go to the full City Council. North River Street has been transformed into a curbless street in which pedestrians have priority over cars. Aldermen have not decided wheth-

with a focus on infrastructure enhancements. “I feel that my support of tempered, conservative growth provides a balanced viewpoint that supports the traditions that make this village who we are as a community while keeping a focus on the future of the village,” he said. Higgins is a small-business professional who has served on the board of directors of the Elgin Downtown Neighborhood Association and served on its Economic Development Committee. “I am an independent voice and try to see things from both sides,” Higgins said. “On any issue, my first question is should municipal government get involved. Second will be how will it help the residents, and third what are the unintended consequences of the action.”

he’d like to bring the “Shop Maple Park First” mentality to the community as a way to focus on keeping people in the community as much as possible. Armstrong has served on the board for four years, and if re-elected, she will focus on infrastructure, street issues such as flooding, wastewater treatment and the possible need for a water tower. “I love the village of Maple Park, and I want the best for the village and just want to make sure there’s good representation for the residents,” she said, adding if re-elected, she’ll be the only member of the board who resides on the Kane County side. Nowak has served on the board since 2011 and is seeking re-election to continue support of tempered growth initiatives for the village

er the arch should be lighted, which would drive up the project’s cost. The cost for the lights and installation is estimated to be between $15,00 to $20,000, City Engineer Noel Basquin said. Basquin said WW Timber is well-known in the architectural industry for working with wood and metal structures and completed the addition to the band shelter at the Peg Bond Center. Fourth Ward Alderman Susan Stark voiced concerns that people don’t know where to park on North River Street now. “It’s currently a sea of bad-

ly parked cars,” she said. “It’s confusing. Living in that ward, people aren’t happy with what we did.” First Ward Alderman Michael O’Brien said the city will need to educate people. “We have to start educating people where they can and can’t park.” he said. Second Ward Alderman Alan Wolff said he thinks the situation is improving. “Every time I have gone down there, it has gotten better,” he said. “People are learning how to use it. Part of our job is to educate people how to use it. Signage will be part of it.”

Cadence to open new doctor Gambling license offices in Sugar Grove, Aurora SUGAR GROVE

given to legion By AL LAGATTOLLA alagattolla@shawmedia.com SUGAR GROVE – The Sugar Grove American Legion now has its video gaming license, and three machines could be installed by the end of the week. Jay Spoden, the president of Sugar Grove-based Tiger Amusements, installs such machines throughout the state, and he said the machines could be active as soon as 14 days after they are installed. He said he expected that three machines would be in place by Friday. Sugar Grove this year voted to allow video gambling, but there is an advisory referendum about the issue on the ballot in the April 9 election. Village Board members are not obligated to act on the results of the referendum,

but some have said they would take the results into consideration. Sugar Grove American Legion Post 1271 was granted a license at the March 20 meeting of the Illinois Gaming Board. Cliff Barker, the legion’s chaplain, said legion officials were “in step-by-step mode” as far as the machines going live. The legion’s machines would be the first within Sugar Grove. Machines have been up and running for months at the Blackberry Bar and Grill, which is between Sugar Grove and Elburn at 1S731 Route 47. Outside of Sugar Grove’s borders at 9S593 Route 47, Calamity Jane’s Bar & Restaurant also has machines. When reached, Spoden said he was at Calamity Jane’s preparing the machines to go live.

The health care company that runs Geneva’s Delnor Hospital has announced plans to enhance its ability to deliver medical services to those living in its service area. Earlier this year, Cadence Health, which operates Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield and Delnor, confirmed its intentions to open doctor offices in Sugar Grove. Those are scheduled to open in June. Also this spring and summer, Cadence will open new doctor offices in Sycamore and near the intersection of Kirk Road and Butterfield Road in Aurora. According to information provided by Cadence, the facility in Aurora will be in the 2600 block of Church Road, about a half-mile southwest of Kirk and Butterfield intersection. The Aurora facility will fea-

ture a convenient care facility. The office also will allow for by-appointment health care services delivered by family medicine doctors, who will relocate their practices to the Church Road location. Cadence’s Aurora facility is scheduled to open in August, the health system said. In May, however, Cadence said it intends to open doctor offices in the 1800 block of Mediterranean Drive, west of the intersection of Peace Road and Bethany Road, in Sycamore. Those offices will provide care only by appointment, Ca-

dence said. Doctors practicing at that location will specialize in family medicine and adult internal medicine. Residents of Sycamore and DeKalb are currently served by doctors affiliated with Kishwaukee Community Hospital in DeKalb. When Delnor Hospital merged with CDH two years ago, creating the Cadence system, the hospitals at that time told state regulators they intended to build two new urgent care or other primary care facilities in “the western portion of the service area.”

KANEVILLE TOWNSHIP

7

By JONATHAN BILYK jbilyk@shawmedia.com KANEVILLE – Dan Ebert doesn’t like hearing people say that township government serves no purpose. “Township government is the grass-roots form of government,” said Ebert, Kaneville Township supervisor. And Ebert believes people benefit from solid leadership at the township level. On April 9, voters in Kaneville Township will select those who will lead their township government for the

next four years. Among other township races, voters will select someone to serve as supervisor. Ebert, 65, of Kaneville, has served as supervisor since being appointed to the office more than three years ago. He is running for election for supervisor for the first time. Before that, he served as a trustee on the Kaneville Township board for nine years. He is being challenged by Alvah Withey of Kaneville. Withey did not respond to phone messages from the Kane County Chronicle. He

also did not respond to a candidate’s questionnaire mailed to his home. Ebert said the current government has managed Kaneville Township well.

He noted that the township carries no debt and, under his watch, has moved to begin fully funding its general assistance fund, which is a form of local welfare for township residents in need. Ebert said the fund has yet to be tapped, but he said the current administration felt it was important to replenish the fund should it be needed. He also noted the township’s work to refurbish the Kaneville Community Center, beginning with the replacement of windows that were original to the building, built

in 1927. He said the township will seek to repair the building’s roof and improve accessibility. And Ebert said the work will be completed using rent payments collected from building tenants, rather than taxes. However, Ebert has indicated he would oppose attempts to freeze the township’s property tax levy because he said the township would continue to increase its property tax levy based on what is allowed under Illinois property tax cap law.

By NICOLE WESKERNA nweskerna@shawmedia.com KANEVILLE – Two men are running for the Kaneville Township highway commissioner, including the incumbent who has held the seat for more than three decades. Dale Pierson is challenging incumbent Dennis Long for the seat, which Long has held for 32 years. Long said he wants to run again because he enjoys the job and likes to stay active. His goals include blacktopping the township’s roads. He said currently, the township has enough funding to blacktop only a half-mile of road each year, and he said he

wants to find grant money to fund road repairs. “This winter isn’t helping our roads with the freezing and thawing,” he said. The township is responsible for 26 miles of roadways, he said, including two subdivisions. Pierson said he’s a good candidate because he has lived in Kaneville Township his entire life, making him knowledgeable about the township’s roads, the needs of the community and the requirements of the job. As a farmer, he said he has knowledge of operating all types of equipment. Pierson’s experience in local government includes

serving on the Kaneville Planning Commission and the Kaneville Fire Protection District Board. He also has been on the Kaneville Cemetery Board for more than 20 years. Pierson said if he’s elected, his priorities would include maintaining and mowing the roadways in a timely manner; continuing snowplowing and salting services; and working with other local highway departments to streamline costs. “Little townships like ours don’t have a lot of money,” he said, adding that he would try to collaborate with nearby townships in Kane County. Long, who also is a farm-

er, is married and has three daughters. He said he’s a good candidate because he has experience. “I know where the bad spots are in the roads and where the snow piles up most in the winter time,” he said. “I know the township real well, and I know all the people out there. If something comes up, they just give me a call.” Pierson is married and has two children. He said he decided to run because he enjoys that type of work. “I have a good knowledge of all the roads in our area, and I know how to run all the equipment,” he said. “It’s one more way to help our community.”

higher standard

Schools brace for lower state test results because of new scoring system By ASHLEY RHODEBECK arhodebeck@shawmedia.com Students in third through eighth grade just took their state-mandated tests this month, but administrators of school districts in and near the Tri-Cities already know one fact about the scores: Fewer students will meet and exceed standards. No, the administrators have made sure to say, the students aren’t necessarily performing worse. Rather, scoring of the Illinois Standards Achievement Test has changed for reading and math. The ISAT is considered the same even though a portion of the test was written to the Common Core Learning Standards, Illinois State Board

of Education spokeswoman Mary Fergus said in an email. Mark Pomplun, the executive director of assessment and accountability for St. Charles School District 303, compared the new scoring to needing 70 percent to pass a class one week and, the next week, needing 85 percent to pass. “All the bars kind of moved,” said Erika Schlichter, director of educational services for Kaneland School District 302. “We are going to see a big difference in scores at the three to eight grade level.” It is unknown how the new scoring system will affect schools’ and school districts’ Adequate Yearly Progress results, which typically are announced in the fall, Pomplun

Even without the higher expectations, 82 percent of Illinois school districts and 66 percent of schools failed to make AYP under No Child Left

Behind, according to ISBE. To illustrate the effects of the new scoring, the ISBE evaluated last year’s ISAT scores under the new scoring it approved in January. Statewide last year, 79 percent of students were proficient

in reading, and 86 percent were proficient in math. Had the higher expectations been used, 60 percent of students would have been proficient in both subjects.

WHEATON – A St. Charles man charged with the sexual assault of a former student at Wheaton North High School has been suspended without pay by Wheaton public school officials. Officials at Community Unit School District 200 announced the suspension in a news release. District offi- Edwin cials said they Klemm were informed March 19 that Edwin Klemm, 43, of the 1100 block of Howard Street in St. Charles, was arrested that afternoon and charged with 11 counts of criminal sexual assault. Klemm is an English teacher and former speech coach at Wheaton North. He was not arrested on district property. It is alleged that between February and November 2011, Klemm sexually assaulted a 16-year-old female student multiple times at various locations, including movie theaters, his vehicle, a classroom and his house, including at least once while his daughter was home, the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office has said. “The district takes the safety and emotional well-being of our students very seriously,” CUSD 200 said in its release. “All staff must complete rigorous criminal background checks before beginning employment.” Klemm will be suspended until the investigation into the allegations against him is complete, district officials said. At that time, the district will review his employment status. The student’s parents contacted the DuPage County Children’s Center after finding a love letter Klemm allegedly had written to the teenager, DuPage County prosecutors said.

Administrators welcome higher test standards • SCORES Continued from page 8

THIRD GRADE ISAT 2012 READING SCORES Schools

Like many other states, Illinois has applied for a waiver to the federal NCLB requirements. That waiver would change the system for making AYP, Pomplun said. Until the state learns whether its application is accepted, he said, school officials don’t know if AYP will be determined under the old or new system. “If every school fails, I don’t think it will mean very much,” Pomplun said. Fergus said in an email that the agency is still waiting for the U.S. Education Department’s decision. “We’re hopeful that our application will be accepted,” she wrote. Confusion aside, administrators welcomed the higher expectations. “Higher standards are a good thing,” said Patty O’Neil, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction at Geneva School District 304. “We want our students to be successful.” With most of St. Charles students going to college, Pomplun said, District 303 welcomes the new standards because it is supposed to measure college readiness – a quality parents and students want. According to the ISBE, the higher expectations will better align with the more rigorous Common Core Learning Standards being implement-

Scores reflect percentage of students who meet or exceed in the subject ed in schools statewide. A new assessment system – the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers – is expected to debut in 2014-15. State Superintendent of Education Christopher Koch has said the previous scoring did students a disservice because it did not adequately assess their ability to succeed after high school. “The new, higher expectations will provide more accurate information about a child’s development and allow us to provide the appropriate supports and interventions earlier in a student’s academic career to ensure

he or she is on track to enter college or career-training programs,” Koch said in a written statement when the change was announced. Scoring of the Prairie State Achievement Exam – the test 11th-graders take – won’t change, as it is already based on college and career readiness. Thus, the state is projecting a smaller gap between the eighth- and 11th-grade scores. Last year, for example, 82 percent of students met or exceeded standards on the ISAT while 51 percent did the same on the PSAE. “This should bring it a little closer into line,” Schlichter said.

James and Clarice Toynton continue to support the field of education through their scholarship fund within the Community Foundation. Endowments are forever.

To the Editor: As a longtime resident (since 1955), I feel that Mr. Jotham Stein is the best choice for our next mayor. His business experience and ideas will help improve and sustain our community. With the extended economic downturn, so many businesses have left our downtown area, as well as the malls and the rest of town. One of Mr. Stein’s top priorities is to attract new businesses to St. Charles. This will bring in new revenue, as well as allow many new people to sample our lovely community.

ANOTHER VIEW

Unlock phones so people can use public airwaves By SUSAN CRAWFORD Bloomberg News What if, when you bought a new television, you had to decide which electrical network you’d like to use it on. That is essentially the problem most Americans face whenever they buy a mobile phone. Subsidized Verizon Wireless handsets can’t function on AT&T’s network, and AT&T handsets don’t work on Verizon’s. This technical limitation, which is backed up by rules borrowed from copyright law, makes competition between the networks unrealistic. Other countries view this situation with amusement. Congress and the Federal Communications Commis-

sion can fix it – the public licenses that allow carriers to operate their networks should carry the obligation to allow customers to use any handset they like. Both AT&T and Verizon Wireless sell handsets to their customers below cost, then recoup the loss and add a hefty profit by way of contracts that last for years. According to a rule issued earlier this year by the U.S. Copyright Office, without permission from the companies, consumers may not legally “unlock” the handsets to enable them to work on a network other than the one they were designed for. Using copyright law to police mobile phones seems like applying food and drug regulation to cars. It doesn’t fit. But

the Copyright Office argues that the computer program that allows a mobile phone to be used on a certain network is not only a mechanism for protecting the carrier’s business but also a creative work, like a novel. A 1998 law, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, prohibits gaining access to something that is copyrighted by working around its technical shields. Although in the past the Copyright Office has allowed an exception for consumer unlocking of mobile phones, this year it switched gears and banned the practice. Earlier this month, after 114,000 Americans signed a petition protesting that decision, the White House said it didn’t like it, either. Lawmakers in

Congress from both parties have introduced, or are planning, legislation. More significant than the legality of phone unlocking is what’s at stake for Americans. As a practical matter, even an unlocked phone may not work on certain networks because it lacks the radio transmitters and receivers it needs to function there. Verizon Wireless and AT&T intentionally use separate portions of radio spectrum. And different radio transmitters take best advantage of different frequencies. Those that are built for one carrier won’t necessarily work on the other’s network. This is fine for big and powerful Verizon and AT&T. Device makers and computer-chip manufacturers will

build customized mobile phones for each of them. However, as the Competitive Carriers Association has pointed out, manufacturers will have no incentive to make mobile phones for smaller and regional companies at a competitive cost. The next time you are faced with a long-term contract for a deeply subsidized handset that is locked to one carrier, remember that wireless networks are constructed on public airwaves. This is a problem we can fix.

ELBURN

Officials mapping out future land use By AL LAGATTOLLA alagattolla@shawmedia.com ELBURN – Looking over a color-coded map showing projected land use for areas of Elburn, trustees continued to fine-tune that vision at Monday’s Committee of the Whole meeting. An official from the firm helping to create that vision aims to have the plans finalized by next week’s Village Board meeting. The village is updating its comprehensive plan, a task that was one of two major items on Monday’s agenda. Plans for the village’s budget also are taking shape as village leaders look forward one week after clearing the way for the Elburn Station development. Carrie Hansen, the director of planning and government relations for Images Inc., handed out revised copies of the land-use plan Monday. Among the highlights – the area of Route 47 south of the downtown area, which previously had been zoned for single-family homes, now is zoned commercial. She said she will adjust the village boundary lines to reflect the annexation of the Elburn Station property. And she and board members went over details on the zoning for the area near Village Hall, with some trustees wondering why there was zoning for multifamily homes in the area. Another item presented by Hansen was the village’s

population estimate, which states that, if the comprehensive plan were carried out as zoned, the village’s population would be 41,737. The village’s existing population is listed at 5,602. With the plans for Elburn Station and other likely growth, that number could reach 17,432, perhaps over the next 20 years. An additional 24,305 is projected as long-term expansion area growth, but that reflects land that is zoned for residential use. But it is what the plan calls for. “Quite honestly, looking at 41,737 is a little sobering,” said Hansen, adding that “it doesn’t mean you are ever going to be that big.” “The numbers are possible if this plan is realized,” she said. Trustee Bill Grabarek, who played a key role in driving discussion on the Elburn Station plan, went over a list of “nits” to be worked out. He did the same in the Elburn Station discussions, cleaning up language and making sure all words meant what they were supposed to mean. Hansen said the plan is to be used “as a road map,” something that can be updated and changed. Grabarek stressed it was the village’s first update to the plan in more than 20 years, and he added that the village is going through a critical period. “I would prefer the comprehensive land-use plan be without nits and be more precise,” Grabarek said.

KANE COUNTY COUGARS

Signs apparent of team’s new era Cubs signs pop up around Geneva as Opening Day nears By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com

• Wednesday, March 27, 2013

The Cougars’ 23rd season in Geneva dovetails with the club’s first season as a Class A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs. That’s not the only reason things are looking up for fans around Fifth Third Bank Ballpark. Earlier this month, City of Geneva employees affixed 40 Cougars lamppost banners around town in anticipation of the April 4 season opener against Quad Cities. The Cougars’ 2013 marketing slogan, “SEE THE FUTURE,” is emblazoned down the right side of the banners, but there’s still something to be said about the past. Cougars General Manager Curtis Haug and Geneva Mayor Kevin Burns believe the decorations are the first of their kind since the franchise moved from Wausau, Wis., in 1991. “We thought it would be something good this year with a new affiliation and kind of welcoming the Cubs to Geneva,” Haug said. “It’s something that’s new and exciting and we really appreciated Mayor Burns giving us the opportunity.” Cougars graphic designer Emmet Broderick developed the banner specifics shortly after Burns approved Haug’s idea in early February. Haug knows it sounds crazy, but he figures there still may be fans in the region unaware of the two-year player-development contract the Cougars and Cubs signed in September.

The Cougars recently debuted lamppost banners, like this one on Anderson Boulevard in Geneva, touting the 2013 “See the Future” marketing slogan and the club’s new standing as an affiliate of the Cubs. Opening Day at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark is April 4. the banners figures to help inform them. Burns called the Cougars’ brand “unquestionable entertainment” and was glad to help his friend, Haug, get a head start on celebrating the upcoming season. The banners will remain up through the end of May before giving

way to decorations trumpeting Swedish Days. “We’ve got a lot of baseball loving fans here in town, and whether you’re a [White] Sox fan or a Cubs fan it doesn’t matter,” Burns said. “This is a chance to see rising Major League stars here in our own backyard.”

Here are a few more notes as opening day nears: • Led by president Theo Epstein, Cubs officials have unveiled the notion of “The Cubs Way,” the organization’s direction and strategy for player development and every element of baseball. In addressing an unspeci-

ficed spike in sales of season tickets and suites compared to last season, Haug used the words, “The Cubs Bump.” Time will tell whether the phrase catches on with the same frequency. At any rate, its results are palpable.

Neari chooses familiar coach Another Neari is about to play college basketball, and another Neari is set to play for Todd Lickliter. St. Charles North senior point guard Tony Neari committed last week to Marian University (Ind.), an NAIA program in Indianapolis. Marian is coached by Lickliter, who coached Nick Neari, Tony’s older brother, at Iowa. Nick Neari walked on at Iowa as a freshman before transferring to Division-II WisconTony Neari sin-Parkside after Lickliter was ousted at Iowa. The family’s familiarity with Lickliter – who coached at Butler before leaving for Iowa – was a main selling point for the younger Neari. “We kind of knew each other already and my brother loved playing under him,” Neari said. “It just seemed like a wonderful situation, and I loved the school when I went there.” Big brother’s scouting report on Lickliter factored heavily into Neari’s choice. “He basically told me he’s a great coach but he’s a better

PREP ZONE Jay Schwab person than a coach,” Neari said. “I can’t wait to get out there and have a great four years of playing basketball there and becoming a student and being good as a student as well.” Neari, a scrappy defender and impressive rebounder for a point guard, was primarily a distributor for the North Stars but is also a capable outside shooter. He likes pushing the pace in transition and said he looks forward “so much” to playing with a shot clock at the college level. “I wish high school had a shot clock,” he said. Neari chose Marian over the University of Dubuque, a Division III program in Iowa. He said he gave fleeting thought to attending a larger school as a regular student. “It just didn’t seem possible for me to give [basketball] up,” said Neari, who plans to gear up for college ball through workouts this spring with Nate’s Premium Athletes.

Lickliter spent a year as an assistant coach at Miami (Ohio) before returning to Indianapolis in June 2012, this time at Marian. He spent six seasons as head coach and had two stints as an assistant at Butler, his alma mater. Licklister’s dismissal at Iowa was one of the reasons Nick Neari transferred to Wisconsin-Parkside, which qualified for the D-II NCAA Tournament this winter in Neari’s senior season. Trip on: Kaneland baseball coach Brian Aversa received the news he was looking for Tuesday afternoon. The Knights’ spring break road trip had been in doubt but Aversa was informed that the first game of the trip – at 5 p.m. today against a Missouri opponent at GCS Ballpark in Sauget, near St. Louis – will go on as scheduled. Southern Illinois absorbed a major snowstorm on Sunday but Aversa said the GCS crew planned to let the sun melt some of the snow on Tuesday and hose down the field with hot water to melt the rest early today. “As long as it works, I’m not going to question the method,” Aversa said. “I just want to get a game in.” The rest of the trip’s slate

remained a work in progress as the wintry weather affected some schools’ plans for the week but Aversa said preserving today’s game emboldened him to follow through. “We have three games for sure,” Aversa said. “That’s what I needed to hear. We’re hoping we’re going to have four but that’s what we’re going with right now.” Burlington Central baseball scrapped its spring break trip, which was to begin Monday, because of the downstate snowstorm. Aversa said his players are relieved they’re able to finally start their season. Kaneland plans to depart at 9 a.m. today. “They want to get out of town,” Aversa said Monday, when the the trip’s status was still in question. “Parents do, too. We have a bunch of families that are going. Everyone looks forward to this every year. It’s a shame [the bad weather] happened but we’re going to try and go make the best of it and get something in if we can.”

Cougars to open season in Geneva for first time since ’06 • COUGARS Continued from page 15 “There’s more of an urgency when it comes to buying tickets. There’s more of an urgency when it comes to booking a group outing,” Haug said. “It’s just a different atmosphere right now around the ballpark and from the public and how they’re reacting, and that’s a good thing.” • This spring marks the first time the Cougars have opened the season at home since 2006, when Quad Cities also was the opponent. The Cougars were an Oakland A’s farmhand then, while the River Bandits – now aligned with the Houston Astros – were an affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals. From 2007-12, the Cougars

an alernating season-opener format, meaning the Cougars will begin on the road in 2014 and in subsequent even-numbered years. “That rule is in place

moving forward,” Haug said. “Which is fair, you know.” • Cougars players will wear Cubs jackets and batting practice tops during the season but keep the traditional green, gold, black and white color scheme for game uniforms. Still, Cubbie blue will predominantly be featured in a sign on the right field wall. In red lettering, the sequence “A, AA, AAA, MLB” appears above the message “IT STARTS HERE,” which is written in white. A Cubs logo is on the side of the display. • In anticipation of increased media coverage, the Cougars expanded their press box, using the lower thirdbase suite to the left of the pre-existing box. Doorways were constructed to connect the rooms.

Artistic flair atop lineup By KEVIN DRULEY

kdruley@shawmedia.com

Why Wolf was selected: Wolf won the 800-meter run (2:16.2) at Saturday’s Illinois Prep Top Times indoor meet sively gotten longer. I guess I start out quickly because that’s just a tendency from sprinting.

Where do you get the confidence to start that fast? Well, I came out for sprinting. I used to be a sprinter in middle school and I’ve just progres-

Do you have a certain time circled as your goal for the spring? I would say my goal for the season is 2:12.

How big of an accomplishment is winning [a Top Times championship for back-toback-years]? I think it’s important in having a good start to the season but I guess for me, outdoor state is always the big goal. This is kind of a stepping stone on the way to outdoor because it’s really hard to say that you peaked for an indoor season because you don’t really peak for indoor. Your goal is to peak for outdoor.

One weekend earlier, the Vikings edged Barrington for the DeKalb tournament championship. Geneva’s resounding start has sounded especially good to Green. She grew up playing recreational badminton at home, and only embraced the sport competitively when she realized she was too short to play effective high school volleyball. Green debuted at No. 2 singles as a freshman before rising to the top spot, and sums up her ascent as going “from the backyard to hardcore.” Vikings coach Pat Fischer, a former St. Viator and Illinois Wesleyan tennis athlete, has found Green, Burkhardt and No. 3 singles player Nicole Schneider capable of beating one another on any given day. He hasn’t seen any reason for realignment, however, on a team harmoniously seeking its third consecutive Upstate Eight Conference River Division regular season crown. “You’re never going to find a better group of girls to talk to,” Fischer said. That’s especially reassuring given Burkhardt’s occasional pre-practice habits. If there’s music playing during warm-ups, she’s been known to sing. “I think it’s fun,” Burkhardt said. “I get to do theater and stuff and then do this, as well.”

Wolf, a Burlington Central senior from unincorporated St. Charles, thrived in the state’s unofficial indoor meet on “all hill training and guts,” said Central coach Vince Neil, noting that the school does not have a fieldhouse conducive to track and field training this time of year. Wolf, the St. Charles Bank & Trust-Kane County Chronicle Athlete of the Week, spoke with Chronicle sports editor Jay Schwab about her title. The following is an edited transcript:

GENEVA – Geneva’s Melanie Burkhardt and Ann Green routinely aim to produce clever, artful badminton. Away from the court, both Vikings rarely surrender their aspirations for elegant entertainment. Burkhardt, a junior, was cast in the school’s staging of “Fiddler on the Roof” earlier this year, while Green, a se- M. Burkhardt nior, plans to major in musical performance in college as an accomplished flutist. “I think some people Ann Green think you can’t mix sports and arts, but I think me and Ann are good representations that you really can,” Burkhardt said. “You can do both if you love to do sports and arts.” Burkhardt and Green have fit that playbill for as long as they can remember. A regular with Geneva’s various bands as well as the Elgin Symphony Orchestra, Green makes plenty of soothing racket when she’s not holding one. “All of the above,” said

Green, who is leaning toward attending Ohio State. “I’m in tons of music stuff. That’s basically my life.” Burkhardt recently cleared more time for singing and acting when she elected not to compete for the girls tennis team in the fall. With her father, Peter, deciding not to coach the Vikings’ boys this spring, the family’s tennis influence at the school is shrinking. Burkhardt, the younger sister of former Vikings standout Nora, remains active in badminton. She and Green have played with the varsity since their freshman seasons, with Burkhardt serving as understudy to Green’s role as No. 1 singles player for the past three springs. “We’ve just gotten to be really close friends and just love playing badminton together,” Burkhardt said. After finishing second in Saturday’s Thornton Fractional South tournament, the Vikings were 16-3, marking their best start since the school resuscitated the sport in 2009. Badminton dissolved at Geneva in the 1980s because of declining interest and participation. Green (No. 1 singles) and Burkhardt (No. 2) both finished second at TF South. Cara Birschbach and Nila Kannankeril – who Burkhardt said were involved in dance and choir, respectively – teamed for a runner-up finish, as well.

Saints lefty-centric

Nothing is ever guaranteed at the start of softball season in the Midwest, but at least a few games usually get played before the calendar turns to April. The unseasonably cold weather and recent snow has postponed almost all area games so far, but there is finally hope on the horizon. St. Charles East has lost its first three games of the season because of snow or cold but has hopes of playing doubleheaders on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The forecasted 45-degree temps for Thursday will feel downright balmy as East hopes to take the field for the first time against Wheaton Warrenville South. The Saints return seniors Olivia Lorenzini and Lexi Perez in a lineup that coach Kelly Horan can’t wait to unleash. “We’re really lefty heavy this year with potentially five to six in the lineup at any given time,” Horan said. “We have a nice mix of bunters/slappers and power hitters from the left side. I’m excited to see what we can do once we get going.” Like most other teams, East has limited space, which means there’s only so much you can work on indoors. “We’ve been prepping the same as we normally would. There are certain things you can’t do like fly balls, but we’ve been getting a lot of reps otherwise,” Horan said. “The girls are about stir crazy not getting outside, but they’re doing a good job at preparing for each practice.”

IN THE GROOVE MOTHER NATURE What she did: The big southpaw has had area teams flailing at an array of cold and snow, pitching a few weeks’ worth of shutouts thus far. As is the case with most seasons, it usually takes the hitters a few weeks to catch up. Look for the streak to finally be broken this week. SENIOR LEADERSHIP By now, seniors have been through the grind of early-season softball a few times. At this point, coaches are leaning on their upperclassmen to rally the troops in hopes of being as prepared as possible for the eventual start of the season.

Sandy Bressner – sbressner@shawmedia.com

St. Charles East softball coach Kelly Horan (right) is looking forward to seeing what her left-handed heavy lineup can do once the season gets going.

Musical chairs in St. Charles The East and North softball teams share space at East, meaning the Saints’ practices have been pushed back to accommodate the North Stars. Many of the Saints’ early season practices have ended at 9 p.m., leaving East yearning for the usual after school drill that they’ll soon grow accustomed to. North coach Tom Poulin has never seen early spring weather like this in his years

of coaching. It’s been an adjustment, to say the least. “Last year was the complete opposite so that’s why we scheduled early this year,” Poulin said. “We got outside last Saturday but we were even pretty limited then. “At some point, we’re just going to have to go outside and brave the elements together.”

We have a situation

allowed teams to focus more on game situations, like bunt coverages and first-and-third defense. Coaches of course would prefer to see their teams squeeze a few games in, but getting extra time to work on various game situations certainly doesn’t hurt – especially when it figures to come in handy in the near future.

COACH SLY SEZ ... Last Sly checked, teams don’t keep stats in the batting cage. At this rate, Sly is going to have to pull out the old scorebook and start keeping score of practice game battles. Thankfully, the weather looks like it will finally

break by the end of the week that will allow Sly to finally set up the lawn chair and take in some games. Pitchers have had plenty of time to prepare, so Sly hopes the back-log of games won’t be too much on the area pitching staffs. • You can respond at kcchronicle.com/blogs/sly.

WHAT WE LEARNED LAST WEEK ... Little. Teams have been struggling just to get outside, let alone take the field for a game. The added indoor time has allowed coaches to watch a lot more hitter/ pitcher battles in the batting cage, ensuring reps for both parties.

WHAT WE’LL LEARN IN THE WEEK AHEAD ... Hopefully a lot. Nearly all of the Chronicle area teams have a game on the calendar this week. St. Charles North scheduled a last-minute contest with Montini at the new Rosemont Dome. East has games slated for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The one area team that is almost assured games is St. Francis, which went to Orlando, Fla., for spring break. The Spartans already dispatched a team from Pennsylvania, with a few more games on tap this week.

Aaron Hurd scored the decisive run for the Bulldogs after reaching on a two-out walk in the seventh inning.

St. Charles North 5, New Trier 3: At Rent One Park in Mar-

Taylor Van Thournout scored twice in the Addison Trail match, while Andrea Ravlin tallied two goals on the day. Anna Vonderhaar contributed four assists for the Spartans.

CHICAGO – Kelvin Hayden will play in his hometown for at least one more season. The Bears re-signed Hayden to a one-year deal Tuesday, which marked the seventh consecutive day in which they have agreed to terms with a free agent. Hayden joined offensive lineman Jonathan Scott, safety Tom Zbikowski and linebackers D.J. Williams and James Anderson as players who have signed one-year contracts in the past week. Hayden, who will turn 30 years old in July, supplanted D.J. Moore last season as the Bears’ primary nickelback on passing downs alongside Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings. Hayden finished the season with four fumble recoveries, which tied for most in the NFL, to go along with 40 tackles, one interception and three pass break-ups. Before joining the Bears in 2012, Hayden spent six

Waubonsee hoops coach receives honor SUGAR GROVE – Waubonsee Community College’s longtime men’s basketball coach Dave Heiss was recently inducted into the NJCAA Basketball Hall of Fame at the Division II National Tournament Banquet. “It’s an honor, but it’s not just my honor. A lot of people have helped me get to this point,” Heiss said. “I didn’t do it by myself. Obviously, my name is on that plaque, but a lot of people at Waubonsee, the administration, athletic director Dave Randall, my assistant coaches and all the players, have helped make this possible.” Heiss began coaching the Chiefs in 1986 and has built the program into a perennial power over the past 28 seasons. – From staff reports

BATAVIA – Selena Kweder smacked a two-out RBI single Tuesday, capping the Batavia softball team’s seven-run seventh inning that clinched a 12-11 victory against West Chicago in the nightcap of a doubleheader. The Bulldogs lost the opener, 13-3, before rallying to get even in Game 2. “The girls were really excited. I was happy with the way they bounced back in the second game,” Bulldogs coach Lupe Castellanos said. “We got off to a good start, had a shaky inning and then the last inning was a good confidence-builder for the girls.” Erin Costigan’s two-out, bases-clearing triple tied the

game for Batavia (1-1) and set the stage for Kweder’s heroics. Costigan and Alex Scaccia both had two hits in the opener, while Katie Ryan hit a three-run home run. “It was just good to get outside and finally play a game after we’ve been inside for a long time,” said Castellanos, a longtime Bulldogs assistant who made his head coaching debut. “I know there’s a lot of things we did well and a lot of things we can still work on.”

The Readers’ Writers: Author mixes science with western in ‘Wade Boss’ By DA KENTNER

a secondary issue in order to manufacture the evil doers for a YA series. Why? MM: On many levels I’m

GateHouse News Service Marcus MacGregor is a former middle grade and high school English teacher with experience in film, screenwriting, theater and music. Melding all of his interests with a sincere concern for the direction modern science might be taking us, MacGregor has released the first offering in a four-part series of young adult novels surrounding the exploits of fictional Hollywood stuntman and animal trainer Wade Boss. “Wade Boss Hybrid Hunter” presents hours of entertainment to both young and old readers, though the story and lighthearted writing style is designed for young adult fans. MacGregor capably intertwined the traditional spaghetti western with contemporary settings and topics, injected the author’s own brand of sometimes not so subtle humor (in a good way), to create a not so common hero. A cowboy more at home on horseback than four wheels, Boss is called upon to defend the nation against transgenic (the pairing of different species’ genes in the egg or embryo) hybrid monsters. “Wade Boss Hybrid Hunter” takes transgenics to the ultimate level of crossbreeding animals to produce new species, which then run amuck. “Wade Boss” is fun. For those seeking a blend of science and westerns in today’s world, you should give this book a try.

DA Kentner: What got you interested in transgenics?

GateHouse News Service photo

Marcus MacGregor’s “Wade Boss Hybrid Hunter” has a lighthearted writing style designed for young adult fans. Marcus MacGregor: Well, I’m always curious about emerging technologies, whatever they be. But my specific interest in hybrid animals is mostly driven by my desire to write stories with monsters in them. I’ve been crazy about monsters since I was a kid. They’re unbelievably cool, and in terms of storytelling they can be powerful metaphors for things that need to be fought and overcome. I also like my science fiction to revolve around science that’s on the verge of becoming non-fiction. When you know that a certain technology is imminent, I think the potential dangers hit closer to home, making the story that much more engaging. DK: The sub topic of transgenics could have easily been transformed to an adult series of stories preaching the dangers. Instead, you chose to make it

concerned about the potential abuses of genetic power, but with “Wade Boss: Hybrid Hunter,” my primary interest was to tell a whopping-good yarn. I wanted to offer young adults a rousing, optimistic adventure – the kind I thrilled to as a young man, but which is seldom written anymore. As the series progresses, the ethical questions related to genetic engineering are explored to a degree, but never in such a way that the narrative becomes oppressive.

DK: You were an English teacher passionate about C.S. Lewis, who besides being a novelist was a theologian and Christian apologist; yet, you chose to write Wade Boss’s stories. How did that decision come about? MM: Yes, I love Lewis! As a teacher, I especially enjoyed introducing my students to his space trilogy. But whereas Lewis’s fiction leans heavily towards allegory, “Wade Boss” is more of a “what you see is what you get” kind of tale.

DK: “Wade Boss Hybrid Hunter” is devoid of the macabre and darkness found in a lot of YA work these days. You could have easily gone that route to take advantage of the trend, but didn’t. Why not? MM: Well, first off I want to say that there is nothing inherently wrong with a story just because it’s dark. But with regards to contemporary YA literature, there does seem to be an over-emphasis on darker story lines, to the exclusion of others. In “Wade Boss,” the

stakes are plenty serious – life and death, in fact. But the tone of the story never becomes pessimistic or cynical. The tag-line on the back cover of the book is: “Dangerous new world. Old-fashioned hero.” And I’ve worked very hard to write the kind of hopeful story that used to be more prevalent, but is often scoffed at these days. There’s a lot of depth as the saga unfolds, but always a lot of subtle humor too, which will appeal to older teens and even adults. There’s really something in it for just about everybody. There are strong male and female characters. It’s an action-adventure first, but there’s also some romance in there as well – nothing inappropriate, either, which hopefully a lot of people will find refreshing as well.

DK: Any parting thoughts for readers about to be introduced to your work? MM: I guess I’d say that for anyone looking for an adventure that is more light-hearted than the majority of YA books out there, “Wade Boss: Hybrid Hunter” may be what you’ve been waiting for. It’s extremely fast-paced, but the characters are very emotionally “real.” It’s a story with a lot of compassion – in fact, Wade’s compassion is what determines almost every major decision he makes. Wade truly wants to be a good man. For me, that’s the single most compelling thing about the story, and I think a lot of young adults out there are hungering for that kind of role model.


DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips amorous activities you both enjoy. Then suggest that instead of this particular sex act, you engage in his “No. 2 favorite.” Dear Abby: I’m a 51-year-old woman with a question. What do you recommend a person do or say when being lied to? I’m not talking about the little white lies we all tell to spare someone’s feelings, smooth things over, etc. I once had a 21-year-old man tell me that he was a veteran of a war that had been over for 10 years! I felt like an idiot pretending to believe him and knew he’d be laughing at me later, but frankly, I felt scared to confront him. – Heard A Whopper Dear Heard A Whopper: If you have reason to feel that the person talking to you is being untruthful, be polite and end the conversation. And if your intuition tells you the person is someone to be

afraid of, put as much distance between you as possible and avoid that person in the future. Dear Abby: I am a plus-sized woman. I am loud and boisterous, and I like to surround myself with similar women. However, there is a problem I am now facing. Many of my friends have made amazing transformations and gotten fit. I am fully supportive and impressed, but I see the price they are paying. They are no longer confident and vivacious. They have become timid, approval-seeking shells of their previous selves. Why do newly thin women forget how awesome their personalities used to be? – Big Beauty In Illinois Dear Big Beauty: Not knowing your friends, I can’t answer for them. But it is possible that having become “transformed and fit,” they no longer feel they need their loud and boisterous personas to compete for attention. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Cure for the common cold still remains elusive Dear Doctor K: Is there any way to prevent a cold? Dear Reader: The typical cold is a relatively mild misery that goes away without special treatment after about a week. Still, it’s a misery most of us would rather avoid. Colds are caused by viruses – more than 200 different types. Because the infection is not bacterial, antibiotics don’t help. Over-the-counter cold medicines are available, but not always effective. So, the search continues for anything that can fend off cold-causing viruses or speed their exit from your body. Here is a rundown of some of the candidates. • Vitamins. Nobel laureate Linus Pauling proposed that large daily doses – 1,000 to 2,000 milligrams (mg) – of vitamin C could prevent colds. Pauling was a genius who made major scientific discoveries and was awarded the Nobel Prize. But even geniuses can be wrong. By and large, research hasn’t supported his assertion. There’s some evidence that vitamins D and E might help fend off respiratory infections, but the evidence is not strong enough to

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff recommend either vitamin for cold-fighting purposes. • Echinacea. The research hasn’t been very encouraging. One review found some evidence that a certain part of one particular species of the Echinacea plant family might be an effective early treatment for colds in adults. Not exactly a ringing endorsement. Other plant-based treatments, such as ginseng, elderberry, garlic and olive leaf, have been offered as cold preventives and cures. But none has emerged as clearly effective. • Zinc. The results have been mixed. A 2011 meta-analysis found that generally healthy people who took zinc within 24 hours of the onset of cold symptoms reduced the duration and severity of their colds, compared to people who took a sugar pill. But there’s no word yet on what dose and formulation of zinc is best. • Exercise. Here’s another reason to work out. Regular exercise may put your body in a better position to fight off a cold. Regular

exercise seems to invigorate the immune system. (But there is also some evidence that the kind of intensive training that top athletes engage in can actually weaken the immune system.) • Sleep. Your mother was right: Getting a good night’s sleep keeps you healthy and may keep colds away. In one study, people who got less than seven hours of sleep a night were almost three times as likely to get a cold as those who got eight or more hours of sleep. I know I’m going to get letters from people who swear that a vitamin, or an herbal preparation, or zinc works for them. I’m not really disagreeing with them. Studies ask whether a particular treatment works for the average person. A treatment that does not work for the average person still may work for some people. Perhaps they have different genes. If you’re convinced a treatment helps you, and if it doesn’t pose any risk (and most of those above don’t), then why not use it?

Dr. Wallace: Alan and I have been dating for about five months. For the first three months, things were wonderful. I thought I had found the perfect guy. Jeff is very handsome and a good athlete. He has a great sense of humor and is a very bright guy and treated me with respect. Then all of a sudden he changed. He started saying bad things to me and used filthy language. I can’t begin to tell you all the nasty things he said about me. Saying that I was a filthy pig was one of his nicer comments. I keep waiting for him to get out of this funk, but it hasn’t happened so far. At one time, a few months ago, I thought that I was falling in love with him. Now I think that love has faded. Still, somewhere in my mind, I get the feeling that if I stop seeing him, he will change and some other girl will wind up with a wonderful guy. Help! – Nameless, Jacksonville, Fla. Dear Nameless: My guess is that the “real” Jeff emerged after several months because he was secure enough in the relationship to believe you were his. I advise you to stop seeing him immediately. He has crossed the line and violated all respect. Chances are if he does change it will be for the worse – possibly into a full-fledged abuser. Dr. Wallace: I am an active 14-year-old girl. For the past several months, I have avoided animal products, including all kinds of meat and cheese. My aunt has told my parents that being 99 percent vegan is not healthy for a growing teen. Our P.E. teacher told our class about the advantages of avoiding animal products, so I asked her again about

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace teens becoming vegetarians, and she said avoiding animal products is helpful, not harmful. Do you know if this is true or not? – Nameless, Nashville, Tenn. Dear Nameless: A well-balanced diet void of meat, but one that includes plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, including leafy greens, whole grains and legumes, is perfectly appropriate for growing teens, according to Suzanne Havala, a nutritionist for the Vegetarian Resource Group (www. vrg.org). All information released by the group has the approval of medical doctors and nutritionists. Dr. Wallace: I’m 19 years old and was dating a guy who is 22. He was constantly telling me how much he loved me and how beautiful I was, especially during romantic moments. Now I don’t see him any more because he refuses to return my calls and emails because I’m pregnant. I don’t want an abortion, but I don’t know what to do. Please help. – Nameless, El Paso, Tex. Dear Nameless: Your parents will find out sooner or later that you are pregnant. After the first moment of hurt, your mother will know exactly what to do, and she will be your best friend through this. You cannot handle your problem by yourself. There are so many things to discuss and things to do that the sooner you start, the better for everyone.

Dear Abby: I hope you will print this because I’m sure many women share this dilemma. My boyfriend, whom I adore and who is one of the kindest men on Earth, wants me to perform a certain sex act on him. While I understand that many people – and I don’t judge them – enjoy it, I am not one of them. I would feel degraded if I even tried it. He says he won’t pressure me about it, yet he talks about it a lot. Just listening to him talk about it puts unwanted pressure on me. I have tried to be honest with him. I told him I don’t want to do this, but I’m afraid if I don’t, it will damage my relationship with him. However, if I give in, I’ll end up feeling self-loathing and resentment. Either way, it will be damaging. We’re in our 40s. Please offer any advice you might have. – Worried In California Dear Worried: You are indeed not alone in this dilemma.

CELEBRITY CIPHER

Douglas Horton was a Protestant minister and academic who said, “Good ideas are a dime a dozen; bad ones are free.” Let’s see if you have a penny’s worth in this six-no-trump contract. West leads the club 10. What should South do? I am still an ardent supporter of old-fashioned responses to a two-club opening. By giving an immediate positive response (two no-trump to show a balanced hand with eight or more points), the opener knows it’s a slam deal. If responder starts with two diamonds, opener will be worried that his partner has no useful cards. North’s four-club rebid is Gerber, asking for aces. (This convention should be employed only if partner’s last bid was one no-trump or two no-trump.) South has nine top tricks: two spades, three hearts and four clubs. Obviously, he must establish dummy’s diamond suit. If the missing cards are splitting 2-2 or 3-1, that will be easy; but what if a defender has all four diamonds? If it is East, declarer has no chance. But if it is West, South can survive if he is careful with his entries. He should take the first trick on the board and lead the diamond king. West might as well take the trick and play another club. Declarer runs that to his hand and leads a diamond, capturing West’s nine with dummy’s jack. South returns to his hand with a spade, takes a diamond finesse, and claims. Note that if declarer wins the first trick in his hand and plays a diamond to the jack, he can no longer make the contract.
