Diagnosing the changes As doctors adapt to improved technology, fewer go it alone By JOSEPH BUSTOS After meeting with a patient at Centegra Hospital – McHenry, Dr. Irfan Hafiz wiped his hands with sanitizer, sat down at a desk, and began dictating notes into a phone. Hafiz then looked at a computer screen to view an electronic image of a CT scan of his next patient. Gone are the days of holding films up to the light – just one of the many changes in the medical field during the 16 years he has been practicing. As hospitals and medical professionals celebrate Doctors’ Day, which was established in 1990 on a national level, physicians have seen many changes over the years in how they do their jobs. Hafiz, who has been practicing since 1997, is a member of Metro Infectious Disease Consultants. He said more physicians are becoming part of medical groups or employed by hospitals. “One is the mindset of [job] security,” said Hafiz, who also is the vice pres-

Dr. Leo Kelly works at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington, where is he is a physician of internal medicine but does mostly administrative work. Even though physicians tend to be independent-minded and entrepreneurial, many are no longer running private practices, Kelly said. There are costs to starting and maintaining a practice. The doctor would have to hire a nurse, a receptionist, someone to handle billing and a computer expert. “Running an office becomes expensive,” Kelly said. Couple that with medical school debt, and being employed is becoming more popular. Many medical school graduates are leaving with a large of amount of debt, sometimes as much as $200,000 to $250,000. “It is an issue,” Kelly said.

Two proposed measures backed by a McHenry County Republican and a local attorney aim to ease the emotional and financial burden that often accompanies divorce or separation. Illinois Senate Bill 31 and House Bill 1029 would pave the way for the Uniform Collaborative Law Act, which would outline the process of using a model of conflict resolution known as collaborative practice. Collaborative practice aims to resolve legal disputes respectfully, out of court, while working with trained professionals. The method would be more cost-effective to an already cash-strapped state court system and clients unable to afford the cost of ongoing litigation.

“This is a way of describing this complex process and keeping folks out of the courtroom,” said attorney Sandra Crawford, of Lake in the Hills. “[Divorce and separation] are times when people aren’t functioning at their highest. When you are talking with clients already in distress, you need to make sure they understand the alternatives to going to court.” State Sen. Pam Althoff, R-McHenry, is a co-sponsor of

Lawmakers tighten belts amid budget cuts By JIM ABRAMS The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Members of Congress are traveling less and worrying more about meeting office salaries. Their aides are contending with long lines to get inside their offices and fewer prospects of a raise. Such are the indignities thrust upon the men and women who brought the country $85 billion in government spending cuts this month. There probably won’t be much sympathy for a senator or congressman making $174,000 a year who is in no danger of being furloughed or laid off, at least until the next election. Still, there has been an effort, especially in the Republican-led House, to show that no one should be exempt

This question won’t be on the 2014 ballot The list of bad decisions made by Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan is long, but one in particular is on my mind today. In 2011, there was a push in Illinois to consolidate the offices of the Illinois state treasurer and state comptroller. The individuals who held those offices – State Treasurer Dan Rutherford and State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka, both Republicans – supported the effort. Combining the offices would have saved a projected $12 million. The Illinois Senate supported consolidation. It passed a bill that would have sent the question to voters as a referendum on the 2012 ballot. The legislation got to the House and died – like a lot of proposed measures – when Madigan, a Chicago Democrat, sent it to committee. Now, $12 million is not a lot of money when you’re talking about the state budget. But ... “If you can save any money, you


VIEWS Jason Schaumburg should do it,” Rutherford said this week when he met with members of the Northwest Herald Editorial Board. “If you can restructure government to be more efficient, you should do it.” There’s a lot of consolidation to be done in Illinois. Eliminating redundancy through efficiency makes sense. The concept, however, is foreign in Illinois. No other state in the union has more taxing districts. Look at the number of one- and two-school school districts we have. Township government? That’s a column for another day. At the state level, a lot of offices could learn from how Rutherford has run the state treasurer’s office. From satellite offices to fleet vehicles to of-

fice phone lines, Rutherford cut them. Those were decisions Rutherford could make on his own. The decision to combine the state treasurer and comptroller offices to save money should have been decided by Illinois voters. Instead, Madigan unilaterally made the decision for us. Why? Madigan says because the two offices have different responsibilities – one holds the money, one pays the bills – and that the state needs a level of checks and balances between the two offices, often citing the $6.15 million State Auditor Orville Hodge embezzled in the 1950s by forging checks. The two offices came about as a result of the incident. “I don’t buy that checks and balances is a concern,” Rutherford said. Why? Well, for one reason, the state doesn’t have cash laying around, as transactions are done electronically, Rutherford said. The state also has an auditor general, which reviews the

obligation, expenditure, receipt and use of public funds. Rutherford said the proposal is dead for now, but he will pursue it again. The push to do something in 2011 was so Illinois voters could decide in 2012. Had the referendum passed, voters would have been voting for the singular office in 2014. Now, 2018 is the soonest voters could elect a single officer for both offices. If we continue down this path, it’s scary to think about what this state will look then. What’s the over-under on bad Madigan decisions between now and 2018?

Warden: No issue with inmates By JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press PONTIAC – The warden at one of the state’s toughest prisons said Friday his staff has absorbed highly volatile former Tamms Correctional Center inmates without violence or other trouble by explaining expectations and “giving them what they have coming – nothing more and nothing less.” Pontiac prison chief Randy Pfister proudly displayed his facility – whose oldest part dates to the administration of President Ulysses S. Grant – lifting a curtain that

Gov. Pat Quinn had drawn over his penitentiaries until last fall but reversed after media agitation. The Good Friday tour came on the last day for Dwight Correctional Center – the women’s prison 20 miles northeast of here. Quinn, a Democrat, ordered Dwight and Tamms and other facilities closed, claiming it will eventually save $100 million a year. Nearly 150 staff members from Dwight will join staff at Pontiac, where 165 security officers typically staff a day shift at the prison of nearly 2,000 inmates.

Employees affiliated with the union, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, which fought Quinn’s closures, bemoaned afterward that additional staff promised when Tamms closed came only at the expense of another penitentiary’s closure. There are 49,100 inmates in a prison system designed for 32,100. The Associated Press requested a tour of Pontiac in August when it became clear it would be the new home of about 160 of “worst of the worst,” the moniker given to inmates exiled for violence or causing other trouble to

Tamms, the state’s supermaximum-security lockup before it closed in January because of its high price and the state’s budget crisis. But Friday’s tour for about a dozen reporters – who were allowed notebooks, but no cameras or audio recorders – omitted the part of the North Cell House that’s now home to roughly 50 convicts who had been shipped to Tamms because they had attacked staff or other inmates. It was skipped was for safety and security reasons and to limit disruption, Department of Corrections spokeswoman Stacey Solano said.

Airports suing FAA over shutdowns By JASON KEYSER The Associated Press CHICAGO – Airport operators are mounting a legal challenge to the Federal Aviation Administration’s decision to cut funding for 149 air traffic control towers, accusing the agency of violating federal law meant to ensure major changes at airports do not erode safety. Several airports are now asking a federal court to halt the plan and compel the FAA to more carefully study the potential safety impact, said Carl Olson, director of the Central Illinois Regional Air-

port in Bloomington. He warned that without a more cautious approach, lives will be put at risk by cuts that he contends are arbitrary and the result of reckless political brinkmanship in Washington.

“I think everybody’s going to realize what the industry knows, and that is there is a razor-thin margin of error in aviation and any diminishment of safety is going to have an immediate and cascading effect,” Olson said in an interview Friday. “And all the talk to the contrary won’t change that fact.” Olson’s airport is among the latest to file a lawsuit this week with the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington. The others are Spokane Airports in Washington state, and the operators of Florida airports in Naples, Ormond

Beach and Punta Gorda. The court combined the suits into a single case Thursday. FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown said Friday that the agency could not comment on the pending litigation. The agency’s administrator, Michael Huerta, has stressed that safety remains the FAA’s top priority even as it is forced by the budget cutting known as sequestration to trim $637 million for the rest of the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30. The first closures will happen April 7. Olson’s airport is slated to lose its funding May 5.

8STATE BRIEFS Imprisoned ex-clown can’t sue over cards

$100 million loan in sight for Chicago river walk

CHICAGO – A court in Chicago has tossed a lawsuit by an ex-clown imprisoned for sexual assault. He accuses prison officials of violating his rights because they seized birthday cards to his young daughters. Before jurors convicted him of assaulting his adult girlfriend, Ronald Schroeder performed around southeastern Wisconsin as “Silly the Clown” and “Mr. Silly.” The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled this week that he can’t claim violations of his First Amendment rights, especially because he was eventually allowed to send the cards. The court says officials interpreted a sentencing order that Schroeder avoid contact with minors as prohibiting birthday cards to his children. The judge later clarified that sending the cards was allowed.

CHICAGO – Chicago appears close to landing a $100 million federal loan to complete a major river walk project downtown. Mayor Rahm Emanuel and U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood discussed details on Thursday. The Chicago Sun-Times quotes LaHood as saying the financial stability of the project is “solid” and it’s now only a matter of “finishing up the paperwork.” Emanuel says the project along a six-block stretch of the Chicago River is no longer “just a dream” but is “now becoming a reality.” Construction starts in 2014 and is supposed to finish in 2016. The Sun-Times reports Emanuel isn’t entirely clear about where all the money will come from to repay the 35-year loan.

167 Urban Prep students get college scholarships CHICAGO – Chicago’s Urban Prep Academy can boast again about its academic prowess. The 167 seniors of the school’s two campuses, located in Chicago’s Englewood community and on the West Side, have been accepted into four-year colleges. Urban Prep is an all-boys school. The seniors, dressed in blue blazers and khakis, donned red and gold neckties Thursday to show Mayor Rahm Emanuel and others they received college acceptance letters. According to school CEO Tim King, the senior class has obtained $6 million in grants and scholarships. He adds the school sends more graduates to Atlanta’s historically black Morehouse College than any other high school in the country.

EPA worker accused of stealing electronics CHICAGO – The Cook County Sheriff’s Office says a temporary worker has been charged with stealing electronic devices from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Chicago office. Authorities say 35-yearold Alan Baker of Chicago is charged with stealing a laptop computer and two smartphones while he was performing janitorial work in December at the EPA’s downtown offices. They say evidence showed Baker had contacted the laptop’s manufacturer’s help line. The computer and phones reportedly were found in Baker’s home this week while he was being interviewed by sheriff’s police and federal investigators. He was charged on Monday with one count of stealing government property, a Class 2 felony.

Texas sex offenders in sight of rare policy win By PAUL J. WEBER The Associated Press AUSTIN, Texas – Four convicted sex offenders huddled in a busy hallway at the Texas Capitol, congratulating each other for going public and testifying against a bill that would plaster their criminal past on their Facebook profiles. As expected, not everyone was moved by their objections. “I don’t feel bad for the guys that came in here whining,” Republican state Rep. Steve Toth said after the men had left the room at a recent House Criminal Jurisprudence Com-

mittee meeting. A Democrat switched on her microphone to voice on the record that she, too, had no sympathy. In the Texas Legislature and statehouses nationwide, bills aimed at curbing how and where sex offenders can live and work are routine. But for the 72,000 registered sex offenders in Texas this year, there is optimism. A legislative victory is in sight, and it’s not for sinking a fresh round of get-tougher proposals – but scaling back one already in place. Pushing forward what advocates say would mark a minor but extraordinary soften-

ing of the state’s sex offender laws, the GOP-controlled Senate has passed a bill to remove employer information from Texas’ online sex offender registry. “I’ve been on that registry for 15 years and going on for a lifetime,” said Hwi-Kee Wong, 34, who works in information

technology and said he was arrested at 18 for copying illegal images. “I’ve never re-offended. I have no intention to re-offend.” It’s not a change of heart swaying lawmakers but the wringing hands of frustrated business leaders – they complain their bottom line suffers

Tough-on-crime conservatives aren’t the only ones piling on the restrictions, either: The Texas proposal that would require sex offenders to list their convictions on social media profiles was filed by Democrats’ go-to political attack dog, state Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer. “The state made a public policy decision in 1991 to get into this business. Every year we’ve expanded it,” Martinez Fischer said. “It’s all been done under the rubric that we need to protect the public. And most important, we need to protect those who probably can’t protect themselves.”

when the public discovers who’s on the payroll. The odd result: Sex offenders and Gov. Rick Perry’s favorite conservative think tank are among those left seeing eye-to-eye. The Texas Public Policy Foundation, which backs business-friendly bills, argues the current registry comes between the private relationship between employer and employee. About a dozen bills in the Texas Legislature this session would create new restrictions, including one reinforcing the authority of cities to keep sex offenders away from playgrounds and swimming pools.

Obama pitches 4-decade-old art heist reinvestigated public works as job creation tool

“The Resurrection,” because he wanted his work to end on a positive note. All 15 paintings were 6 feet by 9 feet, and painted in oil. In 1965, Stahl and his wife moved to Sarasota, Fla., and decided to open a museum for the large-scale paintings. Called “The Museum of the Cross,” it was one of the main tourist attractions in the area at the time. He also displayed other works that he had done, some on loan from museums. Even his fellow artists were impressed. “Those Museum of the Cross pictures are absolutely fabulous,” wrote Norman Rockwell in a letter dated June 3, 1968. “The rest of us are just illustrators but you are among the masters and I am filled with admiration.” Whoever stole the paintings and other pieces of art in the predawn hours of April 16, 1969, must have known what they were doing, said McGath, because they carefully removed each of the tacks that attached the canvases to the frames. More than 50 artworks in all were stolen, including gold rosaries that Stahl and his wife had on display and had collected from their world travels.


The Associated Press

By JOSH LEDERMAN The Associated Press MIAMI – Trying to show that the economy remains a top priority, President Barack Obama promoted a plan Friday to create construction and other jobs by attracting private money to help rebuild roads, bridges and other public works projects. Obama fleshed out the details during a visit to a Miami port that’s undergoing $2 billion in upgrades paid for with government and private dollars. The quick trip was designed to show that the economy and unemployment are top priorities for a president who also is waging high-profile campaigns on immigration reform and gun control. Obama said the unemployment rate among construction workers was the highest of any industry, despite being cut nearly in half over the past three years. “There are few more important things we can do to create jobs right now and strengthen our economy over the long haul than rebuilding the infrastructure that powers our businesses and economy,” Obama said. “As president, my top priority is to make sure we are doing everything we can to reignite the true engine of our economic growth – and that is a rising, thriving middle class.” Among the proposals Obama called for, which re-

State and local governments use the bonds to attract investment. • Giving foreign pension funds tax-exempt status when selling U.S. infrastructure, property or real estate assets. U.S. pension funds are generally tax exempt in those circumstances. The administration says some international pension funds cite the tax burden as a reason for not investing in American infrastructure. • A renewed call for a $10 billion national “infrastructure bank.”

Gas rule would mean higher price at pump By DINA CAPPIELLO The Associated Press

! ! ! ! ! !

WASHINGTON – The Obama administration’s newest anti-pollution plan would ping American drivers where they wince the most: at the gas pump. That makes arguments weighing the cost against the health benefits politically potent. The proposal to reduce sulfur in gasoline and tighten auto emission standards, released Friday, would raise gasoline prices by less than a penny per gallon, the Environmental Protection Agency says. But the oil industry points to its own study putting the cost between 6 and 9 cents a gallon. The EPA also said its proposal would add about $130 to the price of new vehicles, beginning in 2025.

The administration says the costs to consumers are worth the payoff: billions of dollars in health benefits from reductions in smog- and soot-forming pollution. The agency predicts $7 in health benefits for every dollar spent to implement the new rules. The agency must hold public hearings before finalizing the rules.

The proposal was praised by environmentalists and health advocates, as well as automakers who say it will help the U.S. catch up with the cleaner fuels used in other nations. California already uses the sulfur standard. EPA Acting Administrator Bob Perciasepe said the proposal is designed to “protect the environment and public health in an affordable and practical way.”

SARASOTA, Fla. – On an April evening nearly 44 years ago, just days after Easter Sunday, someone slipped into a museum in Sarasota and stole 15 paintings, one portraying the resurrected Jesus and 14 depicting the Stations of the Cross. Now, a Sarasota County Sheriff’s detective is reinvestigating the decades-old disappearance of the art. “Those paintings could be anywhere in the world,” said Detective Kim McGath. All of the paintings were done by artist, illustrator and author Ben Stahl, who died in 1987. He was well known in the 1950s and ’60s for being a prolific and well-compensated illustrator for the Saturday Evening Post and for creating movie posters and book covers. “Ben Hur” and the 25th anniversary edition of “Gone With The Wind” were among the movie posters; “Madame Bovary” was one of his limited-edition book illustrations. He also one of the first professors at the Famous Artists School, a correspondence course in art once advertised on the back of matchbooks.

Man gets probation for shooting 86-year-old pleaded guilty to mercy killing AP photo

An Insitu ScanEagle unmanned aircraft is seen Tuesday at the airport in Arlington, Ore. It’s a good bet that in the not-so-distant future aerial drones will be part of Americans’ everyday lives, performing countless useful functions.

Civilian drone age has risks, rewards By JOAN LOWY The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The dawn of the age of aerial civilian drones is rich with possibilities for people far from the war zones where they made their devastating mark as a weapon of choice against terrorists. The unmanned, generally small aircraft can steer water and pesticides to crops with precision, saving farmers money while reducing environmental risk. They can inspect distant bridges, pipelines and power lines, and find hurricane victims stranded on rooftops. Drones – some as tiny as a hummingbird – promise everyday benefits as broad as the sky is wide. But the drone industry and those eager to tap its potential are running headlong into fears the peeping-eye, go-anywhere technology will be misused. Since January, drone-related legislation has been introduced in more than 30 states, largely in response to privacy concerns. Many of the bills would prevent police from using drones for broad public surveillance or to watch individuals without sufficient grounds to believe they were involved in crimes.

Stephen Ingley, executive director of the Airborne Law Enforcement Association, says resistance to the technology is frustrating. Drones “clearly have so much potential for saving lives, and it’s a darn shame we’re having to go through this right now,” he said. But privacy advocates say now is the time to debate the proper use of civilian drones and set rules, before they become ubiquitous. Sentiment for curbing domestic drone use has brought the left and right together perhaps more than any other recent issue. “The thought of government drones buzzing overhead and constantly monitoring the activities of law-abiding citizens runs contrary to the notion of what it means to live in a free society,” Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said at a recent hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee. With military budgets shrinking, drone makers have been counting on the civilian market to spur the industry’s growth. Some companies that make drones or supply support equipment and services say the uncertainty has caused them to put U.S. expansion plans on hold, and they are looking overseas for new markets.

By BRIAN SKOLOFF The Associated Press PHOENIX – An 86-yearold man who carried out a mercy killing by shooting his ailing wife and high school sweetheart in the head was sentenced Friday to probation after an emotional hearing where family members tearfully spoke on his behalf. George Sanders could have faced more than 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to manslaughter. The judge, who complimented the prosecutor for being “courageous” in recommending probation, allowed Sanders to walk out of the courtroom. Judge John Ditsworth said his sentence of two years’ probation was “individualized and tempers justice with mercy.” “It is very clear that he will never forget that his actions ended the life of his wife,” Ditsworth said as Sanders stood at a podium, his hands clasped and shaking. “In this set of facts, there was a perfect storm of individual circumstances which placed Mr. Sanders in a position where had to make a decision,” Ditsworth said. “This set of facts hits close to home for all of us.” Sanders, wearing khakis and a white sport coat, spoke for only a minute about his

I loved her when she was 81 years old,” he said, trembling. “It was a blessing, and I was happy to take care of her,” Sanders continued. “I am sorry for all the grief and pain and sorrow I’ve caused people.” Sanders was arrested Nov. 9 after he says his wife begged him to shoot her at their home in the retirement community of Sun City outside Phoenix. He was initially charged with first-degree

TULSA, Okla. – The Oklahoma agency that accused a Tulsa oral surgeon of unsanitary practices, putting thousands of people at risk for hepatitis and HIV, says it’s never needed to inspect medical offices regularly. “There’s not been a need for these inspections because we’ve never had a complaint like this,” said Susan Rogers, the executive director of the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry. Some other states don’t routinely inspect clinics, either, noting they don’t have the money and such incidents are so rare that the need just isn’t there. In Oklahoma, the Board of Dentistry’s small staff does inspections only if the agency receives a complaint.

Judge rejects divorce for transgender man PHOENIX – An Arizona judge Friday refused to grant a divorce for a transgender Arizona man who gave birth to three children after beginning to change his sex from female. Maricopa County Family Court Judge Douglas Gerlach ruled that Arizona’s ban on same-sex marriages prevents Thomas Beatie’s 9-year union from being recognized as valid. Thomas Beatie was born a woman and later underwent a double-mastectomy, and began testosterone hormone therapy and psychological treatment to become a man, but retained female reproductive organs. Gerlach said he had no jurisdiction to approve a divorce because there’s insufficient evidence that Beatie was a man when he married Nancy Beatie.

Detectives investigate L.A. girl’s abduction LOS ANGELES – Nearly 50 detectives hunted Friday for clues to kidnappers who

snatched a 10-year-old girl from her bedroom and dumped her, scratched and barefoot, miles from her home. Detectives worked around the clock to determine whether the abduction was random and whether there was a connection to the kidnapping of cousins of the girl five years ago by their fathers. The girl has said the two men who kidnapped her Wednesday were strangers, police said.

Advocates: NYC deal is key in push for sick days NEW YORK – Hundreds of thousands of workers in New York City are poised to get paid sick days in what may prove a pivotal moment in a national debate over whether businesses should be required to provide them. After reaching a deal that could affect about 1 million workers in settings ranging from restaurants to construction sites, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, union leaders and business groups lauded it Friday as a plan that met both workers’ needs and employers’ concerns. But Mayor Michael Bloomberg called it bad for business and vowed a veto.

Philadelphian jumps on tracks to help fallen man PHILADELPHIA – A recovering drug addict with a long rap sheet was hailed as a hero for jumping onto subway tracks to rescue a man who walked off a platform. Christopher Knafelc, 32, was waiting for a train Thursday when he saw a man fall on the tracks. He jumped down to help, knowing that a train would arrive in a few minutes. “I had a plan if a train came I was going to roll him underneath,” Knafelc told WPVI-TV, “or if I couldn’t, I was going to ask someone to jump down and help me roll him.”

N. Korea threat all bark, no bite By JEAN H. LEE The Associated Press SEOUL, South Korea – Across North Korea, soldiers are gearing up for battle and shrouding their jeeps and vans with camouflage netting. Newly painted signboards and posters call for “death to the U.S. imperialists” and urge the people to fight with “arms, not words.” But even as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is issuing midnight battle cries to his generals to ready their rockets, he and his million-man army know full well that a successful missile strike on U.S. targets would be suicide for the outnumbered, outpowered North Korean regime. Despite the hastening drumbeat of warfare – seemingly bringing the region to the very brink of conflict with threats and provocations – Pyongyang aims to force Washington to the negotiating table, pressure the new president in Seoul to change policy on North Korea, and build unity inside the communist country without triggering a full-blown war. North Korea wants to draw attention to the tenuousness of the armistice designed to maintain peace on the Korean Peninsula, a truce Pyongyang recently announced it would no longer honor as it warned that war could break out at any time. In July, it will be 60 years since North Korea and China signed an armistice with the U.S. and the United Nations to bring an end to three years of fighting that cost millions of lives. The designated Demilitarized Zone has evolved into the most heavily guarded border in the world. It was never intended to be a permanent border. But

six decades later, North and South remain divided, with Pyongyang feeling abandoned by the South Koreans in the quest for reunification and threatened by the Americans. In that time, South Korea has blossomed from a poor, agrarian nation of peasants into the world’s 15th largest economy while North Korea is struggling to find a way out of a Cold War chasm that has left it with a per capita income on par with sub-Saharan Africa. The Chinese troops who fought alongside the North Koreans have long since left. But 28,500 American troops are still stationed in South Korea and 50,000 more are in nearby Japan. For weeks, the U.S. and South Korea have been showing off their military might with a series of exercises that Pyongyang sees a rehearsal for invasion. On Thursday, the U.S. military confirmed that those drills included two nuclear-capable B-2 stealth bombers that can unload the U.S. Air Force’s largest conventional bomb – a 30,000-pound super bunker buster – powerful enough to destroy North Korea’s web of underground military tunnels. It was a flexing of military muscle by Washington, perhaps aimed not only at Pyongyang but at Beijing as well. In Pyongyang, Kim Jong Un reacted swiftly, calling an emergency meeting of army generals and ordering them to be prepared to strike if the U.S. actions continue. A photo distributed by North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency showed Kim in a military operations room with maps detailing a “strike plan” behind him in a very public show of supposedly sensitive military strategy.

Syrian rebels in strategic battle for south By ZEINA KARAM The Associated Press BEIRUT – Capitalizing on a recent influx of weapons, Syrian rebels are waging a strategic battle for the southern part of the country and seeking to secure a corridor from the Jordanian border to Damascus in preparation for an eventual assault on the capital. On Friday, the rebels celebrated their latest victory:

They seized full control of Dael, a key town along a main highway, after forces of President Bashar Assad’s regime all but withdrew from the area. “God is great! We are coming, Bashar!” armed fighters cried Thursday after they captured the last of the military checkpoints in the town where Assad’s forces had been holed up. Dael is one of the bigger towns in the southern Daraa

province, where the uprising against Assad began in March 2011, when security forces arrested high school students who scrawled anti-regime graffiti on a wall. Activists said it was in Dael that the first statue of Assad’s father, the late President Hafez Assad, was first toppled. The regime responded with a military crackdown in the area. For a while, it succeeded

in muting the revolt while government troops turned their attention to defending Syria’s northern and eastern regions against rebel advances. But in dusty agricultural towns and villages across the province, the rebels have recently gone on the offensive, expanding their presence with a renewed sense of purpose. The rebel fighters include Islamic militants.

Pope’s foot-washing final blow for traditionalists By NICOLE WINFIELD The Associated Press VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis has won over many hearts and minds with his simple style and focus on serving the world’s poorest, but he has devastated traditionalist Catholics who adored his predecessor, Benedict XVI, for restoring much of the traditional pomp to the papacy. Francis’ decision to disregard church law and wash the feet of two girls – a Serbian Muslim and an Italian Catholic – during a Holy Thursday

ritual has become something of the final straw, evidence that Francis has little or no interest in one of the key priorities of Benedict’s papacy: reviving the pre-Vatican II traditions of the Catholic Church. One of the most-read traditionalist blogs, “Rorate Caeli,” reacted to the foot-washing ceremony by declaring the death of Benedict’s eight-year project to correct what he considered the botched interpretations of the Second Vatican Council’s modernizing reforms.

The night he was chosen pope, March 13, Francis emerged from the loggia of St. Peter’s Basilica without the ermine-rimmed red velvet cape, or mozzetta, used by popes past for official duties, wearing instead the simple white cassock of the papacy. He also received the cardinals’ pledges of obedience after his election not from a chair on a pedestal as popes normally do but rather standing, on their same level. In the days since, he has called for “intensified” dialogue with Islam – a gesture that rankles

“The official end of the reform of the reform – by example,” “Rorate Caeli” lamented in its report on Francis’ Holy Thursday ritual. A like-minded commentator in Francis’ native Argentina, Marcelo Gonzalez at International Catholic Panorama, reacted to Francis’ election with this phrase: “The Horror.” Gonzalez’s beef? While serving as Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Francis’ efforts to revive the old Latin Mass so dear to Benedict and traditionalists were “non-existent.”

some traditionalists because they view interfaith dialogue as a sign of religious relativism. This year’s Good Friday procession at Rome’s Colosseum, which re-enacts Jesus Christ’s crucifixion, was dedicated to the plight of Mideast Christians, with prayers calling for an end to “violent fundamentalism.” Francis, however, chose to stress Christians’ positive relations with Muslims in brief remarks the end of the ceremony. He recalled Benedict’s 2012 visit to Lebanon when

“we saw the beauty and the strong bond of communion joining Christians together in that land and the friendship of our Muslim brothers and sisters and so many others.” Francis also raised traditional eyebrows when he refused the golden pectoral cross offered to him right after his election by Monsignor Guido Marini, the Vatican’s liturgy guru who under Benedict became the symbol of Benedict’s effort to restore the Gregorian chant and heavy silk brocaded vestments of the pre-Vatican II liturgy to papal Masses.

Christians mark Exhibit of Jews in Germany raises interest Jesus’ crucifixion By KIRSTEN GRIESHABER The Associated Press

By TIA GOLDENBERG The Associated Press JERUSALEM – Hundreds of Christians streamed through the cobblestone alleyways of Jerusalem’s Old City on Friday, hoisting wooden crosses and chanting prayers to mark the crucifixion of Jesus. Throngs of pilgrims walked a traditional Good Friday procession that retraces Jesus’ steps along the Via Dolorosa, Latin for the “Way of Suffering.” They followed his 14 stations, saying a prayer at each and ending at the ancient Holy Sepulcher church. Along the route, Franciscan friars in brown robes chanted prayers in Latin and explained the different stations to crowds through a megaphone. Leonard Mary, a priest from Irondale, Ala., was dressed as Jesus wearing a crown of thorns. He was flanked by men posing as Roman soldiers and had fake blood dripping down his chest as he lugged a giant cross down the street. “The most perfect love that was ever seen in the world was when Jesus died for us. He showed us the perfection of love,” the priest said.

Good Friday events began with a morning service at the cavernous Holy Sepulcher, which was built on the place where tradition holds that Jesus was crucified, briefly entombed and resurrected. Clergy dressed in colorful robes entered through the church’s large wooden doors as worshippers prayed in the church courtyard. Later Friday, a service was due in Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity, built atop the traditional site of Jesus’ birth. Christians believe Jesus was crucified on Good Friday and resurrected on Easter Sunday. Roman Catholic and Protestant congregations that observe the new, Gregorian calendar, are marking holy week. Orthodox Christians, who follow the old, Julian calendar, will mark Good Friday in May. Less than 2 percent of the population of Israel and the Palestinian territories is Christian, mostly split between Catholicism and Orthodox streams of Christianity. Christians in the West Bank wanting to attend services in Jerusalem must obtain permission from Israeli authorities.

BERLIN – “Are there still Jews in Germany?” “Are the Jews a chosen people?” Nearly 70 years after the Holocaust, there is no more sensitive an issue in German life than the role of Jews. With fewer than 200,000 Jews among Germany’s 82 million people, few Germans born after World War II know any Jews or much about them. To help educate postwar generations, an exhibit at the Jewish Museum features a Jewish man or woman seated inside a glass box for two hours a day through August to answer visitors’ questions about Jews and Jewish life. The base of the box asks: “Are there still Jews in Germany?” “A lot of our visitors don’t

nity for those people to know more about Jews and Jewish life.” But not everybody thinks putting a Jew on display is

the best way to build understanding and mutual respect. Since the exhibit – “The Whole Truth: Everything you wanted to know about Jews” – opened this month, the “Jew in the Box,” as it is popularly known, has drawn sharp criticism within the Jewish community – especially in the city where the Nazis orchestrated the slaughter of 6 million Jews until Adolf Hitler’s defeat in 1945. “Why don’t they give him a banana and a glass of water, turn up the heat and make the Jew feel really cozy in his glass box,” prominent Berlin Jewish community figure Stephan Kramer told The Associated Press. “They actually asked me if I wanted to participate. But I told them I’m not available.”

8WORLD BRIEFS Filipino devotees reenact crucifixion of Christ SAN PEDRO CUTUD, Philippines – Devotees in villages in the northern Philippines took part in a bloody annual ritual to mark Good Friday, a celebration that mixes Roman Catholic devotion and Filipino folk beliefs and sees some reenact the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The crucified devotees spent several minutes nailed to crosses in Pampanga province while thousands of tourists watched and took photos of the spectacle, which the church discourages. Earlier in the day, hooded male penitents trudged through the province’s villages under the blazing sun while flagellating their bleeding backs with makeshift whips. Others carried wooden crosses to dramatize Christ’s sacrifice. Devotees undergo the hardships in the belief that such extreme sacrifices are a way to atone for their sins, attain miracle cures for illnesses or give thanks to God. Alex Laranang, a 58-year-old vendor who was the first to be nailed to a cross Friday, said he was doing it “for good luck and for my family to be healthy.”

Mandela making progress in hospital JOHANNESBURG – Nelson Mandela is making “steady progress” while being treated for a recurring lung infection and he had a full breakfast on Friday, South African authorities said. The office of President Jacob Zuma released a statement in which it said the former president and anti-apartheid leader was in good spirits after being taken late Wednesday to a hospital in the capital, Pretoria. “The doctors report that he

is making steady progress. He remains under treatment and observation in hospital,” the statement said. “We would like to repeat our appeal for the media and the public to respect the privacy of Madiba and his family,” it said, using Mandela’s clan name, a term of affection. It is 94-year-old Mandela’s third trip to a hospital since December. At that time, he spent three weeks in a hospital in Pretoria, where he was treated for a lung infection and had a procedure to remove gallstones. Earlier this month, he was hospitalized overnight for what authorities said was a successful, scheduled medical test.

Israel faces geopolitical tangle with natural gas JERUSALEM – Recent discoveries of massive offshore natural gas deposits, set to begin flowing in the coming days, are turning into a mixed blessing for Israel. The deposits are expected to provide Israel enough natural gas for decades and transform the country, famously empty of natural resources, into an energy exporter. Yet selling this gas overseas will require Israel to navigate a geo-political quagmire that risks angering allies and enemies alike. Amid this uncertainty, Israel still has not formulated an export policy. “Instead of being an ingredient which serves to calm the tensions of the eastern Mediterranean, [the discoveries] provide instead another impetus for rivalry,” said Simon Henderson, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. “There is a reason this is often called diplomatically trapped gas.”

Reform law will cause more changes House members say • DOCTORS Continued from page A1 have been flat or declining, Kelly said. “The common notion is physicians make a good living, and most of their career they do,” Kelly said. Although medicine is entirely about changes in patients’ lives as they go through illnesses and age, there have been changes over the years in how doctors do their jobs. “We should be equipped to deal with change,” Kelly said. The tools and programs physicians use have changed in the 30 years Kelly has been a physician. The technology and the science have evolved and improved. How doctors chart and do

years ago; they don’t like it now.” Doctors are able to do charting and documenting via

electronic records now. Writing notes in charts is starting to become less common. “My handwriting was never good,” Kelly said. “Thankfully with electronic medical records, everyone could read what I write now.” With health care reform coming, there will be some adjustment, Hafiz said. “I don’t think anyone knows for sure,” Hafiz said. “I think the only thing for certain is there will be change.” Kelly said one good thing coming with the Affordable Care Act is the increased access to health care for people, as insurance companies can’t exclude patients for pre-existing conditions and younger adults are able to stay on their parents’ insurance until age 26.

Proposal would allow collaboration in disputes • BILLS Continued from page A1 Senate Bill 31 and an advocate for the act. “Part of the problem I hear from my constituents is the length of time it takes to get into court and get things settled,” Althoff said. “This will be less time-consuming, and that’s appealing.” Although some legal professionals have used collaborative practice for years, others have shied away because lawmakers never defined it, said Crawford, who has used the method for more than 10 years and runs her own law office in Chicago. The proposed measures would clearly define it, Althoff said. The process begins with attorneys laying out all options for clients and their particular situations. If collaboration is chosen, they agree not to litigate, and a collaborative team that could include at-

“This will separate out the representation so there are no conflicts when it comes to a negotiated settlement. What we want to provide people is a way to work it out before turning to the courtroom.” Michael Noland, co-sponsor of the Senate bill torneys, health professionals, financial advisers and other counselors helps negotiate resolutions. A key distinction between collaborative practice and litigation is if the trained lawyers cannot help the client reach a settlement, they have to exclude themselves and a different lawyer is hired. “This forces us to not keep a foot in the door, and if we don’t resolve the issues, to not rush to court,” said Crawford, past president of the Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois, a driving force behind the proposed legislation. “That makes all the professionals focus on finding a solution instead of going to

litigation.” Another difference: Unlike with litigation, where attorneys and clients may deny divulging certain information, parties agree to full disclosure in collaborative practice. “It eliminates, ‘If I’m not asked, I won’t tell,’ ” Crawford said. “Everyone commits to lay everything on the table.” State Sen. Michael Noland, D-Elgin, agreed. “This will separate out the representation so there are no conflicts when it comes to a negotiated settlement,” said Noland, a co-sponsor of the Senate bill. “What we want to provide people is a way to work it out before turning to the courtroom.”

Collaboration allows families to work out issues in a more timely and inexpensive fashion during a time when the court system is backlogged and struggling financially. Often, those who choose litigation also find themselves back in court once a settlement is agreed upon. “In family law, I have some clients who are back in court every Christmas making modifications of a parenting agreement because they didn’t get it right the first time,” Crawford said. “Collaboration isn’t for everyone, but people should have options.” Crawford is expected to speak Monday to the House Judiciary Committee about the act, and a vote could come later that month. Hawaii, Nevada, Ohio, Texas, Utah and Washington, D.C., already have passed the Uniform Collaborative Law Act. Three other states, including Illinois, are considering it.

they feel the pinch • CUTS Continued from page A1

Earlier in March – after Congress and the White House failed to come up with an alternative to across-theboard cuts in most federal programs – the House imposed an 8.2 percent reduction in lawmakers’ personal office budgets. That came on top of 11 percent cuts to members’ office budgets during 2011-2012. “We’ve drastically reduced travel both for myself and my staff,” said Republican Rep. John Campbell, who must cross the country to visit his southern California district. He said he tends to stay in Washington on two-day weekends rather than return home. “I’m more productive here when I’m not rushing to get home,” he added. Campbell said other “little things” he is doing to economize include reducing the office phone bill, cutting off magazine and newspaper subscriptions, and using email rather than letters to communicate with voters. Rep. Luke Messer, a freshman Republican from Indiana, said he hired fewer people when he came to Washington because “we essentially began the term knowing there was a high possibility of a sequester” – Washington-speak for the automatic spending cuts. So far, congressional staffers appear to have escaped the furloughs that are likely to send thousands of public servants home without pay for several workdays over the next six months and disrupt some government services. Under House rules, a lawmaker must pay for excess spending out of his or her own pocket. The fiscal pressures are

less strong in the Senate, where senators have staff budgets about double the amount of the $1.3 million average in the House and where the office cuts ordered because of the sequester were limited to 5 percent. While staffers still have their jobs, they may have a harder time getting to them. Security officials have cut costs by closing 10 entrances and several side streets around the Capitol complex, creating long lines to get through screening stations. People “have started to adjust to those changes at the entrances,” although it is still a challenge on busy days, said U.S. Senate Sergeant at Arms Terrance Gainer. Gainer, who oversees nearly 1,000 security and administrative employees, said he hopes to abide by the 5 percent sequester cut without layoffs by enlisting 70 or 80 people for a voluntary retirement program. Some House members also are feeling the pinch during the two-week Easter break, a prime time for foreign “fact-finding” tours. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, announced last month that members must book commercial flights rather than make use of more convenient but more expensive military aircraft. Some Democrats have complained the GOP enthusiasm for frugality has come at too high a cost. “At a time when most members of this body are representing newly formed congressional districts with a need to open new offices or move to new locations, we find ourselves with an 8.2 percent decrease in the very operating budgets that support constituent services,” said Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.

Small step for pensions We don’t often agree with Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, but his statement this week regarding pension reform was correct: The pension reform bill passed last week in the Illinois House is a good start. House Bill 1165 was approved March 21. The measure caps the 3 percent annual cost-ofliving adjustment for existing retirees to only the first $25,000 of income for four of For the record the five state-run pension systems. It’s a good start. But it’s It also pushes far from the comprehensive back the eligibilpension reform that the state ity for COLA needs. increases to age 67 or five years after retirement. As Quinn said, it’s a good start. But it’s far from the comprehensive pension reform that the state needs. Missing from the House legislation is raising the retirement age and the need for employees to contribute a larger share toward the cost of health insurance. Caps on pension payouts should be instituted, especially for those annually pulling in six-figure salaries. And the reform needs to include judges pensions, even if they ultimately will decide the constitutionality of any reform that is approved by lawmakers. For all the House bill is missing, it’s far better than the pension reform legislation that passed in the Senate last week. It addressed only teachers pensions, and proposed forcing downstate and suburban teachers to choose between getting a 3 percent COLA or state health insurance once they retire. As state Sen. Dan Duffy, R-Lake Barrington, said, the Senate bill “isn’t even a step forward.” All but one of McHenry County’s representatives in the House voted for HB1165. The lone “no” vote came from Mike Tryon, R-Crystal Lake, who voted against the bill on the grounds it would not survive a court challenge by the state’s powerful public sector unions. “I’m really worried that this would pass, we take a budget credit, spend that money, and then lose in court,” Tryon said. Republican State Treasurer Dan Rutherford disagrees, and we agree with his assessment of the situation. Said Rutherford: “Inaction because of fear of a lawsuit is unacceptable.”

8HOW CONGRESS VOTED A look at this week’s major votes in Congress and how those who represent McHenry County voted:

Adopt $3.7 trillion budget The purpose: An original concurrent resolution setting forth the congressional budget for the U.S. government for fiscal 2014, revising the appropriate budgetary levels for fiscal 2013, and setting forth the appropriate budgetary levels for fiscal 2015 through 2023. The vote: Passed in the Senate on March 23 – 50 voted “yes,” 49 voted “no” and one didn’t vote. Local representation: U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D) voted “yes;” U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk (R) voted “no.” Source: New York Times’ Inside Congress website


Navigating tough times The names and the numbers change, but the story is the same: School districts are notifying workers of layoffs next school year, primarily because of declining state revenues. But look more closely, and realize that each district’s situation is unique. Some districts have been cutting costs for several years, while others took a “hope-things-get-better-soon” strategy and kept spending. The districts with stagnant or declining local property-tax bases are hurting the most. Unless the state gets its finances in order – a big if – local school districts will continue to feel the squeeze. Now 112 of the state’s 865 districts are either on the state’s early financial warning or watch list, the highest number ever. School leaders must look for innovative ways to cut costs or generate revenue, just as private businesses have done to survive the economic downturn. Are districts talking about consolidation or at least sharing services or programs? Are parents helping pay for athletics and other extracurricular activities? Can teacher compensation be cut or raises and step increases be delayed? Some school districts have property-tax increase proposals on the ballot next month Whether voters agree to impose higher taxes on themselves will depend in large part on how well they think district leaders are navigating through these tough times.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Re-elect Perschke

Kaplan has right traits

To the Editor: An organized, experienced candidate, well-versed and up to date through ongoing education, well-known to property owners through an open-door policy and flexible hours: priceless. That best describes McHenry Township Assessor Carol Perschke. If you have been at a loss of understanding your taxes and you called the assessor’s office in the past 17 years, you would have talked to Carol. Her ability to make one comfortable with questions answered and actions of fairness dealing with any and all tax-related issues empowered the property owner, immediately warding off anxiety. Dealing with someone that knows their job and you don’t have to get a Dummy 101 education before you get there is novel today. Her innovation to be the first township assessor to automate the systems and first putting assessments on the Web makes her the right person to continue that expertise; keep those qualities going. Re-elect Carol Perschke for assessor.

To the Editor: I have known Bruce Kaplan and his family for over 20 years. Bruce and I coached Cary youth basketball, and our wives coached girls youth softball together. Bruce has been very active in supporting local community groups. I found this out firsthand when I became a board member of the Cary-Grove Food Pantry three years ago. Bruce has provided tremendous financial support to the Cary-Grove Food Pantry and Crystal Lake Food Pantry with a program that he developed. His vendor program has generated more than $20,000 for the two food pantries. Bruce Kaplan is running for village president of Cary for all of the right reasons. Bruce has the experience, the commitment and the passion needed for a successful president. My wife, Lori, and I will be voting for Bruce Kaplan for Cary village president April 9.

Patti J. Roberts McHenry

Stop negative campaigning To the Editor: Andy Glab is my Ward 2 alderman in McHenry. He is out representing Steve Cuda as he tries to attack Sue Low’s integrity by attempting to discredit her. Sue has served our community for 10 wonderful years, bringing a strong sense of pride back to our community and making community service one of her highlights of her tenure. Negative campaigning, especially by an alderman, is dirty and hateful. Glab is known for his negative voting on many agenda items the majority of aldermen have approved as forward thinking. Andy certainly does not represent my views, and I dare think the majority of residents he is supposed to represent. Sue and Tom Low have had to share their personal struggles with the correct information and they should not have had to. Shame, shame, shame on Andy Glab for his smear tactics.

has long demonstrated her leadership as a dedicated public servant for the historical society, the Volunteer Center for United Way and many other organizations. Molly understands that MCC should be a center for our community with a focus on lifelong learning and a partner with businesses to provide employees’ vocational and technical training. That helps our residents stay competitive in the job market and helps our great local business stay competitive in today’s economic climate. Molly Walsh for MCC trustee: good for your family, good for business, great for McHenry County.

Anderson a strong leader To the Editor: I am writing this letter in support of Tom Anderson for Fox River Grove village trustee. I have known Tom for many years as a fellow firefighter and friend. Tom is very personable and likes to do his homework before deciding on issues. He is not one to have a knee-jerk reaction, but has a proactive attitude to do the right things for the village. Tom didn’t spend 20 years as a volunteer firefighter, a Desert Storm veteran and a vice president of operations for a large steamship company doing nothing. Tom is a strong leader and knows how to get things done. No standing around with Tom. Tom’s emphasis this year is on taxes, business growth and fiscal accountability. I hope that everyone can get out and vote for Tom Anderson on April 9 and see what values he brings to the village. Jim Kreher Fox River Grove

Great for the county To the Editor: Please vote for my friend and colleague Molly Walsh for McHenry County College trustee. I have known Molly personally and professionally for over a decade. Molly is smart, thoughtful and kind. Most importantly, she will be accessible to all of us. Molly


Crystal Lake

Marengo concerns To the Editor: Annexation of new properties by Marengo has me very concerned. I travel on Meyer Road often. This road was recently annexed to the city, and it’s a mess. How is the city going to afford to take care of it. How is that going to happen? They can barely take care of what they have now. Ride down almost any street in the city. And now the city is going to take on even more? I was curious, so I checked, and if the city is able to annex all that is planned, there will be a road that city road staff is responsible for that is 6 miles away from the Marengo’s home base. This just doesn’t sound good for the people living in Marengo nor the new soon-to-be constituents. To me it is clear. If you look at these new responsibilities the city is taking on, this is a no-win for taxpayers who have to pay for it and the folks who will now be living in the city 6 miles away from road workers. Ask your City Council representative about it soon. This is happening very quickly for some reason. Margaret Jezek Marengo

Kaplan part of the change To the Editor: When Mark Kownick was on the

deadline was March 29. All letters are subject to editing for length and clarity at the sole discretion of the editor. Submit letters by: • E-mail: • Mail: Northwest Herald “It’s Your Write” Box 250 Crystal Lake, IL 60039-0250

Cary Village Board, he voted for a series of tax and fee increases. This led to some existing businesses leaving and rejection by other businesses looking to move here. Is Mark opposed to the transparency and openness that Bruce Kaplan and the new board has brought? If there was such a concern about Kaplan being a Realtor on the board, don’t you think something would have come up by now? It hasn’t, and it won’t. Bruce Kaplan and others saw what was happening, decided it was time for a change, campaigned and won resoundingly. For the past two years, he has been working with the board, residents and businesses to reverse the negative effects of past boards. The residents were longing for an open, honest and transparent government, and Bruce has been part of that change and deserves to continue by being elected village president of Cary. Sean Chapman Cary

Smith earns vote To the Editor: Mike Smith has earned his spot on the McHenry County College board through hard work and dedication. He volunteered to serve on the Friends of MCC Foundation Board for four years, and now he’s willing to serve a six-year term on the MCC Board of Trustees – another volunteer assignment. I’ve known Mike for many years and have always wondered how he could balance his personal goals with his professional goals. He is a rarity and does it well. Mike already has formal endorsements from the Northwest Herald and the MCC faculty and staff, and I would imagine other endorsements will follow. If you take a look at Mike’s website, I’m sure he will earn your support as well: www. So you have my choice for MCC trustee on April 9, Mike Smith. Ed Kisman Lakewood

EVENT TO BENEFIT GIRL’S FAMILY McHENRY – A fundraising event today featuring a visit from a Chicago Bears lineman will benefit the family of Dayana Garcia, the 12-year-old McHenry girl who died in a house fire earlier this month. The benefit starts at 2 p.m. today. It includes a 2:30 p.m. Easter egg hunt for children 14 and younger, followed by a “fun fair” from 3 to 5 p.m. The fair will feature moonwalks, face painting, games and photo opportunities with Bears center Roberto Garza. The event will be at McHenry High School West Campus, 4724 W. Crystal Lake Road, and includes silent and live auctions beginning at 3 and 3:30 p.m., respectively. Neighbors also are collecting clothing and household items for the family. Garcia, who was enrolled in seventh grade at Parkland Middle School, died March 8 after a fire started in a downstairs living room of her McHenry home. Garcia’s parents and three brothers – ages 4, 6 and 18 – escaped by jumping out of a second-floor window.

Event to shed light on Ill. laws Transparency seminar in works for local officials after April 9 election By KEVIN P. CRAVER Freshmen politicians who prevail April 9 should pencil in May 2 on their calendars so they don’t end up running afoul of state transparency laws. It probably wouldn’t hurt more than a few of the incumbent politicians to

show up, either. The McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office will host a workshop to familiarize elected officials with the state’s Freedom of Information, Open Meetings and Public Officials Prohibited Activities acts. The two-hour seminar, free of charge and open to the public, will be at McHenry

County College. “While each public body faces different challenges and issues, transparency and a strong ethical foundation are essential to all governmental bodies,” the State’s Attorney’s Office said in a news release. The seminar also will include a representative from the Illinois Attorney

General Public Access Counselor’s Office, which since 2010 has had binding authority to enforce FOIA and Open Meetings Act compliance. State lawmakers gave the office that power in a significant strengthening of Illinois sunshine laws

MCCD budget includes raises, fixes 5 seek 3 seats By EMILY K. COLEMAN Despite the number of acres protected and maintained by the McHenry County Conservation District growing substantially over the past six years, the number of district employees has stayed about the same. That disparity appears set to continue as the district’s board held a hearing on a proposed budget for the next fiscal year, which starts May 1.

Learn more The proposed budget overview as well as previous budgets can be found at the McHenry County Conservation District’s website,, under the Freedom of Information tab. The proposed budget includes $28.4 million of total expenditures through its six funds, a decrease of 8.4 percent from last year. Of that total, $12 million is debt service and $9.4 million is

the general fund, from which the district pays most of its operating expenses. Because the board decided against raising the levy in December, the budget is based off similar revenue numbers from the previous year. The budget overview, which is available on the district’s website, called the move not to increase the levy “courageous,” outlining the growing disparity

Every year, churches are packed on Christmas, Easter, Ash Wednesday and other major Christian holidays. But many congregations struggle to retain those churchgoers, who are less likely to show up on the Sundays in between. To account for this, some McHenry County churches are using communication software to better stay in touch with mem-

bers and reach out to those who don’t attend services weekly. At the end of the homily during the Ash Wednesday service, altar servers at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Crystal Lake held up a large sign and told people to text the words “Saint Thomas” to 84576. The church collected the numbers through software called Flocknote, which allows organizations to easily communicate with their members. Flocknote, founded in 2009 by


a former youth pastor in Texas, allows churches to send simple and professional-looking text, email or phone messages to subscribers. Users select how they want to receive the messages. “Parishioners hear something Sunday, but once they walk out of the church, they forget about it until next Sunday,” said Matthew Warner, founder of Flocknote. “The ability to send a quick text update [in the

Challengers cite new view CRYSTAL LAKE – Two newcomers are hoping to bring fresh voices to the Crystal Lake City Council, while most incumbents running for a seat cite their years of experience as reasons why they make good council members. There are three seats, for which there are five candidates, up for grabs in the April 9 election. Ralph Dawson and Jeffrey Thorsen are longtime incumbents. Cameron Hubbard was appointed in November to fill a vacancy. The men are up against challengers Charles Ebann and James Tomasello. “I bring a different perspective to the council,” Ebann said. “My long-term corporate professional background is unique. ... I’ve had success with achieving cost reductions and obtaining favorable budget results. I think

Personnel costs made up 71 percent of district’s operating costs this fiscal year • BUDGET

Other projects proposed in budget include:

Continued from page B1 between employees and acreage. The acreage maintained by the district is in large part the result of the voter-approved issuance of $73 million in general obligation bonds in July 2007. “[The referendum] placed the district in the precarious situation of entering into an accelerated period of growth as the national economy entered into a severe and sustained recession,” the budget overview said. Although the overview highlighted the concern in the first few paragraphs, it did not propose any solutions. District spokeswoman Wendy Kummerer didn’t return requests for an interview, and board policy requires interviews with trustees to be funneled through the communications office. The vast majority of the bond revenue, $62.5 million, was designated for land acquisition by the board. The remainder went to natural restoration projects, and site and trail development and improvement. All of the bond principal has been spent. This coming fiscal year, an additional $1.2 million – from the interest earned off the

• Replacing six existing vehicles and buying two additional work trucks. • Replacing bathroom stalls at Fel-Pro RRR Conservation Area, 1520 Crystal Lake Road, Cary. • Adding steel roofs to the shelters at Hickory Grove Highlands Conservation Area, 500 Hickory Nut Grove Lane, Cary, and Stickney Run Conservation Area, 3716 State Park Road, McHenry. • Improvements for Prairie Trail South, including a ramp along La Fox Road. This is a project that was budgeted for and started last year. • The construction of a trail that will connect West Lakeshore Drive to Lake Avenue in Woodstock. • Resurfacing parking areas at facilities including the Brookdale administrative offices and the Harts Road lot at Glacial Park. bond principal – is allocated for land acquisition and about $1 million on improvements to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. In 2007, the district maintained 20,701 acres; last year, it was 25,023 acres, an increase of nearly 21 percent. Over the same period, the number of full-time equivalent positions has increased to 90.3 from 88.7, an increase of 1.8 percent. The district has 79 fulltime, three part-time and about 30 seasonal employees. This coming fiscal year, overall staffing levels are set to remain the same, excluding the elimination of a part-time internship in the Natural Resource Management Department. Under the proposed budget, current employees would

see a cost-of-living increase of 2 percent. Contracts between the district and its two bargaining groups have yet to be finalized. Some employees also will see an increase because of a new pay scale, which was put together after a review of all district positions compared with other similar internal and external positions. This change amounts to a 1.6 percent annual increase in wages, according to the budget overview. Personnel costs, including wages and benefits, made up 71 percent of the district’s operating expenses this fiscal year. Despite expecting a 2.5 percent increase in these costs, their share of the budget is expected to decrease to 70 percent.

More than 400 churches use service in U.S. • CHURCHES Continued from page B1 middle of the week] is huge.” Since Ash Wednesday, St. Thomas the Apostle has added more than 1,000 people to its Flocknote service. The church was able to inform members of a last-minute visit by a priest who spent time in Rome and planned to inform them of the process to elect a new pope. “We would have never been able to do that before we started using [Flocknote],” said JoEllen Gregus, director of adult education and evangelization at St. Thomas the Apostle. But the potential of Flocknote is in its ability to keep more people coming to St. Thomas the Apostle every week by increasing communication, the Rev. Jerome Koutnik said. “We know we’re going to see people on Ash Wednesday that we’re not going to see again until either Easter or Christmas,” Koutnik said.

“We thought, ‘How can we network technologically?’ to keep them active in the pursuit of this love of ours.”

Number of investigations find not all governments honor FOIA requests On the Net

• LAWS Continued from page B1 after the arrest, impeachment and indictment of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Illinois has about 7,000 units of government, far more than any other state. The laws mandate that government records and government meetings be open to the public. Anything not explicitly exempt under either law must be public, and the law does not require exemption – for example, a government that wants to negotiate a union contract in open session can do so, despite an exemption allowing them to take it behind closed doors. Despite public education efforts, investigations have shown that there is room for improvement when it comes to compliance. A 1999 audit by The Associated Press found that more than two-thirds of the 400 governments it visited statewide – about four per county – did not honor requests for

information that is explicitly public under FOIA. A 2006 investigation by the Better Government Association found that more than 60 percent of the 400 local governments it audited failed to comply with FOIA, and almost 40 percent never even responded to the request. An audit last year of 400 governments by the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform, two years into the stronger FOIA, likewise showed that more than 40 percent never responded to the request. Although many governments say they strive for openness, the Northwest Herald in recent years has locked horns with governments over public meetings

and public documents. A 2007 audit of county school districts by the newspaper showed that about half of them routinely violated the Open Meetings Act either by taking inappropriate matters into closed session or by not regularly reviewing closed-session minutes for possible release as required by the law. The state public access counselor sided with the newspaper in a 2011 complaint alleging that several McHenry County Board members violated the act by rotating members out of a secret meeting to avoid an attendance number that would require the meeting to be open, and notice given to the public. The newspaper successfully fought the McHenry County College Board in obtaining the contract of the college’s ousted president, and in obtaining a 2007 feasibility study for a proposed minor-league baseball stadium to pay for a new health and wellness center.

Hopefuls talk public service, economy • COUNCIL Continued from page B1 analytically and try to look at all aspects of a situation before making decisions.” Tomasello pledged to have an open ear for residents. “I want to be sure that all citizens’ voices are heard and evaluated, especially if they take the initiative to express those concerns,” he said. Hubbard may be new to a City Council that’s been together for more than a decade, but he credited his family history in Crystal Lake for leading him to public service. “My family farmed and helped settle this land, they

Candidates for Crystal Lake council • Ralph Dawson (incumbent) • Charles Ebann • Cameron Hubbard (i) • Jeffrey Thorsen (i) • James Tomasello held elected office, they were local business owners and they raised our family here,” Hubbard said. “Their example is an inspiration to me, and these roots are the foundation of my candidacy.” Thorsen lauded the city’s accomplishments this past year with its incentives for businesses.

“The City Council has accomplished much in comparably slow years of economic growth,” he said. “... These incentives immediately encouraged business to invest in spaces that would otherwise remain vacant. Incentives have also attracted and retained the types of companies that provide area jobs.” Dawson agreed. “I feel the biggest accomplishment over the past year that the City Council has made would be the infill of over 1 million square feet of retail and commercial space,” he said. “This new revenue is significant to our community’s economic growth.”

The Rev. Jerome Koutnik St. Thomas the Apostle church “We thought, ‘How can we network technologically?’ to keep them active in the pursuit of this love of ours.” St. Mary’s in Huntley started using Flocknote three weeks ago and uploaded the email addresses of 5,000 members into the service. The church also is holding a cellphone number signup at the Masses on April 6 and 7. “People can receive messages the way they want to receive them,” said Maria Maddox, coordinator of adult faith information and parish secretary at St. Mary’s. “It’s really easy to use.” Ease of use was a priority for Warner when designing Flocknote. He said many church administrators are overburdened and often not very tech savvy.

“There’s more complicated software out there, but it doesn’t get utilized,” Warner said. “It’s too complicated and takes too much training. We tried to overcome those obstacles.” More than 400 churches throughout the country use the service, including Holy Cross in Batavia and St. Mary Immaculate in Plainfield. Koutnik said that while the Catholic Church has millions of worshipers in the United States, getting a strong turnout every week always has been a challenge. “Some Protestant groups are much better at evangelizing than the Catholic Church,” he said. “That’s a fact. We’ve got all the answers, but we’ve got no one out there spreading the message.”

The Sun is Shining and the Birds are Singing ■ AUTUMN SIEGMEIER, PLANITNORTHWEST.COM

Again, what a difference seven days makes. It finally feels like the weather is matching the calendar and spring has arrived. People are smiling, winter coats are hanging in the closet and the bunny is coming this weekend. With this sunny outlook, it is time for Things I Am Looking Forward To This Month.

MARCH 30 MURIEL ANDERSON WITH HOWARD LEVY THE WOODSTOCK OPERA HOUSE, WOODSTOCK One of the world’s foremost fingerstyle guitarists and harp-guitarists, Muriel’s joy of music and facility across musical genres is revered by guitarists and audiences worldwide. She will be joined by Grammy Award winning harmonica player Howard Levy. Tickets are $25. Music starts at 7 p.m.


Cocktails Next Friday: There is a small group of girls here at work that occasionally go out for a margarita or two. Fortunately, it takes us about three to four weeks of talking about it to actually decide on a day to go, or we would be hitting the Mexican restaurant way too often because they serve up great cheap margaritas! Of course, we will talk about work but there is such a nice “shorthand” that you only have among co-workers. All the stress and complaints of the week will be left on the table, along with a good tip; the waitstaff is also really nice.


Bob Dylan: The Golfer in My Life and I are headed to a Bob concert in a few weeks. We Broken Arrow and Positively 4th Street, are both big fans and have seen him more than essentially two bands in one, faithfully replicate the music of Neil Young and Bob Dylan. No detail fifteen times in the past fifteen years. Someis overlooked, from the musicianship and vocals times I think that possibly the Golfer and I are to wardrobe, lighting and instruments. Starts at getting a little too old to be going to concerts. 9:30 p.m. But, hey, as long as Dylan keeps touring, we will keep traipsing around the Midwest to see him.


The Golf Season: A few weeks ago I mentioned I wasn’t looking forward to the start of golf. But after a long March with the Golfer, we both

need him back out on the course. He makes me laugh because he still gets so excited to play a round. I know on golf mornings he will bounce out bed, full of energy and in a great mood. Not as much will get done around the house and I will be grocery shopping solo but it is well worth it to have him back in his element. This also makes me realize another reason I love pilates; it’s year-round and not all dependent upon our crazy weather. Bike Riding: I made a commitment to myself when I got my bike last year that I would continue to ride, even after my stress fracture was healed. Well, it is now time to put the pedal to the road, so to say. I like to run in the cold but I am definitely a fair-weather biker. Seeing people out on the streets the past few days has gotten me motivated. Maybe I will take a short spin around the neighborhood on Sunday morning. Change In Wardrobe: I think everyone can relate to this. Pack away the sweaters and get out the spring stuff. Not only is it like saying hello to old friends when I switch out my clothes but it really signifies that good weather is here for the next six months. Nothing says “I am done with winter” more than wearing sandals the first time this year. Enjoy this weekend with family, friends and maybe an egg hunt. Even though many people’s brackets are busted, the college basketball games are going to be good, too. Go Blue! Autumn

“Admission” HHH STARRING: Tina Fey, Paul Rudd, Lily Tomlin, Nat Wolff PLOT: A tightly wound Princeton University admissions officer (Fey) visits a rustic alternative high school run by Rudd. He introduces her to the school’s top student (Wolff), who wants to attend Princeton. Rudd then drops the bombshell that the boy is the son Fey gave up for adoption 17 years earlier. RATING: PG-13 for language and some sexual material TIME: 1 hour, 57 minutes VERDICT: Despite the advertising selling this as a romantic comedy, it is as much a drama as a comedy with an ending as bitter as it is sweet. The focus is not so much on the romance between Fey and Rudd as it is on Fey’s midlife crisis and the conflict with her feminist mother played by Lily Tomlin. Director Paul Weitz waits a long while before allowing the story to find its voice as a drama, but Fey and Rudd are likeable and they make the project work despite its flaws. – Jeffrey Westhoff, The

“The Call” H½ STARRING: Halle Berry, Evie Thompson, Abigail Breslin PLOT: When veteran 911 operator Jordan Turner receives a call from a girl who has just been abducted, she soon realizes that she must confront a killer from her past in order to save the girl’s life. RATING: R for violence, disturbing content and some language TIME: 1 hour, 35 minutes VERDICT: “The Call” dials up a shallow thrill ride, but one efficiently peppered with your typical “don’t go in there!” moments. But what once was usual for Hollywood – reliable, popcorn-eating genre frights – isn’t so much anymore. “The Call” is a rudimentary, almost old-fashioned 90-minute escape that manages to achieve its low ambitions. – Jake Coyle, The Asso-

“The Croods” HH½ STARRING: The voices of Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone and Catherine Keener PLOT: The world’s first prehistoric family goes on a road trip to an uncharted and fantastic world. RATING: PG for some scary action TIME: 1 hour, 32 minutes VERDICT: Cavemen – they’re just like us! – or so “The Croods” seems to be saying with its familiar mix of generational clashes, coming-of-age milestones and generally relatable laughs. The animated adventure features a strong, star-studded cast and dazzles visually in wondrously colorful, vibrant 3-D, but the script doesn’t pop off the screen quite so effectively. The simplistic message here is: Trying new things is good. It’s a useful notion for kids in the crowd to chew on, but their older companions may be longing for something more substantive. Still, “The Croods” is both brisk and beautiful, and should be sufficiently entertaining for family audiences for whom few such options exist these days. And it might be especially resonant with young female viewers, with a strong, resourceful teenage girl at its center named Eep (voiced by Emma Stone in her usual charming rasp). It’s the prehistoric era, and while the rest of Eep’s family prefers the comforting safety of hiding fearfully inside a cave, with only sporadic outings for group hunts, she longs to see what’s outside those stone walls. Her dad, Grug (Cage), is especially protective, neurotically worrying about every possible unknown and urging the same sort of apprehension in everyone else. But everything changes when Eep escapes and meets a guy named Guy (Reynolds). – Christy Lemire,

“G.I. Joe: Retaliation” H½ STARRING: Dwayne Johnson, D.J. Cotrona, Adrianne Palicki, Channing Tatum PLOT: After the G.I. Joe team is betrayed and ambushed on a mission to Pakistan, the three survivors (Johnson, Cotrona and Palicki) vow to find the Cobra villains responsible and stop their plan for world domination. RATING: PG-13 for intense sequences of combat violence, brief sensuality, language and martial arts action TIME: 1 hour, 39 minutes VERDICT: “Retaliation” is a sequel that doesn’t want to be a sequel. It jettisons the original movie’s comic book sensibilities and abandons almost its entire cast but brings back its star (Tatum) only to kill him off in the first act. With its

and movies, “The Host” centers on a teenage girl (Ronan) who’s torn between two lovers. Like Bella, she’s of two minds. Only this time, it’s literal. Rather than offering any “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”-style thrills, “The Host” wastes most of its two hours on high-school-caliber drama. “You’re angry when I kiss a man you do love,” Wanda whines to Melanie, after smooching with both Jared and Ian, “and you’re angry when I kiss a man you don’t. It’s very confusing.” Writer-director Andrew Niccol (“In Time,” “Gattaca”) is usually better than this. But I don’t blame him. His body has been taken over by Meyer, whose monomaniacal focus on the supernatural menage a trois is guided by her own alien overlords: the teenage girls who buy her books by the millions. – Michael O’Sullivan, The

Associated Press sometimes brutal tone, the sequel basically transitions the concept of G.I. Joe from a team of military heroes to another action franchise for Johnson, who might as well go back to calling himself The Rock. One other Joe, the silent ninja Snake Eyes (Ray Park) does return in a convoluted subplot that plays like another, slightly better, movie. Near the end the villains destroy a major city in a show of force, and it is appalling that none of the good guys bats an eye over what would rank as one of the greatest disasters in world history. Apparently, if it happens in a country that isn’t America, it doesn’t count. – Jeffrey

“A Good Day To Die Hard” H STARRING: Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch and Mary Elizabeth Winstead PLOT: John McClane travels to Russia to help out his seemingly wayward son, Jack, only to discover Jack is a CIA operative working to prevent a nuclear-weapons heist, causing the father and son to team up against underworld forces. RATING: R for violence and language TIME: 1 hour, 37 minutes VERDICT: It’s supposed to be a parody of itself, right? That’s the only way to explain this ridiculously over-the-top, repetitively numbing fifth film in the “Die Hard” franchise. John McClane used to be a cowboy. Now, he’s a cartoon character – specifically, Wile E. Coyote, given how many times he should be seriously injured and/or killed in this movie. The most he suffers is a scratch here and there, and then he’s ready to pop back up again with a bemused twinkle in his eye and a wry quip. Part of the charm of this career-defining Bruce Willis’ character was the regular-guy, Reagan-era resourcefulness he represented; now, he’s weirdly superhuman. But as charismatic as Willis ordinarily is, even he can’t fool us into thinking he’s enjoying himself this time. “A Good Day to Die Hard” is pointless and joyless, a barrage of noise and chaos, an onslaught of destruction without the slightest mention of consequence. Director John Moore mistakes shaky-cam and dizzying zooms for artistic finesse in his action sequences. But the most obnoxious element of all may be the father-son feel-goodery that occurs in the midst of all this madness. You see, Willis’ unstoppable New York cop has traveled to Moscow to track down his bitter, estranged son, Jack (Jai Courtney), whom he believes to be in criminal trouble. Jack is actually a spy working undercover to protect a government whistleblower (Sebastian Koch), and dad has arrived just in time to ruin his mission. Now they must work together – and bond. – Christy Lemire, The Associ-

“The Host” H½ STARRING: Saoirse Ronan, Diane Kruger, William Hurt, Jake Abel PLOT: When an unseen enemy threatens mankind by taking over their bodies and erasing their memories, Melanie will risk everything to protect the people she cares most about, proving that love can conquer all in a dangerous new world. RATING: PG-13 for sensuality and some violence TIME: 2 hours, 1 minute VERDICT: Judging solely by the film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s 2008 novel “The Host,” the “Twilight” author’s commitment to the love triangle is inviolable. This sci-fi love story has way more Harlequin Romance in its DNA than Harlan Ellison. It’s a mushy and unsuspenseful melodrama. Like the Edward-Bella-Jacob triangle that anchored the “Twilight” books

“Identity Thief” HH STARRING: Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy, Amanda Peet, Robert Patrick PLOT: When a Denver businessman (Bateman) discovers that a Florida woman has stolen his identity and destroyed his credit record, he travels to the Sunshine State to confront her. RATING: R for sexual content and language TIME: 1 hour, 52 minutes VERDICT: After a lengthy setup, this turns out to be a road comedy patterned after the “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” formula of forcing a family man to travel with a weirdo. The attempt is misguided, because McCarthy is an unrepentant crook who doesn’t earn the sympathy that John Candy did. Many other clichés are visited along the way. Despite the script’s slippery grasp on morality, Bateman and McCarthy still find ways to be funny and charming. – Jeffrey Westhoff, The

Northwest Herald

“The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” HH STARRING: Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, Jim Carrey, Olivia Wilde PLOT: Las Vegas’ top magician (Carell), who also is an insufferable jerk, breaks up with his longtime partner (Buscemi) then discovers he has forgotten how to do a solo act. Meanwhile, a guerilla street magician (Carrey) is becoming Vegas’ hottest new star. RATING: PG-13 for sexual content, dangerous stunts, a drug-related incident and language TIME: 1 hour, 40 minutes VERDICT: Carell takes a shot at the “egomaniacal hero needs to learn humility” story that usually falls in Will Ferrell’s wheelhouse. In fact, the plot is basically “Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” with magic instead of stock cars. Laughs are intermittent, and come because stars such as Carell, Carey and Alan Arkin are bound to be funny every so often in spite of weak material. The script recycles generic sequences, and character motivation is random. Olivia Wilde is in the movie probably because the studio wanted more sex appeal. – Jeffrey Westhoff, The

Northwest Herald

“Jack the Giant Slayer” HHH STARRING: Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci PLOT: After farm boy Jack (Hoult) trades the family horse for some magic beans, he accidentally grows a towering beanstalk that could reignite an ancient war between men and giants. He joins a team of brave knights to climb the beanstalk and rescue a beautiful princess (Tomlinson) from the hungry giants. RATING: PG-13 for intense sequences of fantasy action violence, some frightening images and brief language TIME: 1 hour, 54 minutes VERDICT: Except for a few moments thrown in to gain a PG-13 rating, this is an old-fashioned family adventure fantasy along the lines of “Jason and the Argonauts” and “The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad.” Director Bryan Singer (“The X-Men”) plays the material at face value without shrinking from its corny virtues, and the cast charms by playing it straight. The CGI giants are fearsome villains, and visual effects featuring the beanstalk are imaginative. The thrill-packed finale goes on too long, though, which is a symptom of current action movies. – Jeffrey Westhoff,

“The Last Stand” HHH STARRING: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville

PLOT: The leader of a drug cartel busts out of a courthouse and speeds to the Mexican border, where the only thing in his path is a sheriff and his inexperienced staff. RATING: R for strong, bloody violence throughout and language TIME: 1 hour, 47 minutes VERDICT: “The Last Stand” is the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie you didn’t even realize you wanted to see. This is the action superstar’s first leading role in a decade, having left acting to serve as the governor of California and whatnot, and while it may not have occurred to you to miss him during that time, it’s still surprisingly good to see him on the big screen again. He is not exactly pushing himself here. Korean director Kim Jee-woon’s American filmmaking debut turns out to be an extremely Schwarzeneggerish Schwarzenegger film, full of big, violent set pieces and broad comedy. He may look a little creaky (and facially freaky) these days, but Arnold proves he’s still game for the mayhem as he fires off rounds and tosses off one-liners, and the movie at least has the decency to acknowledge that it knows that you know that he’s old. – Christy Lemire, The

“Les Misérables” HH½ STARRING: Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfreid PLOT: Years after ex-prisoner Jean Valjean (Jackman) breaks his parole to become a virtuous man, fanatical policeman Javert (Crowe) continues to hunt him. While avoiding Javert, Valjean helps a dying prostitute (Hathaway) and, years later, her daughter (Seyfried). RATING: PG-13 for suggestive and sexual material, violence and thematic elements TIME: 2 hours, 37 minutes VERDICT: Director Tom Hooper’s interpretation of the blockbuster stage show is a musical in close-up. With his actors singing their roles “live,” Hooper can push his camera’s right into their faces. This is riveting for the first hour, then becomes repetitive. Jackman, Crowe and Hathaway are electrifying. This film was made for fans of the stage show. Others who don’t know the story going in will be lucky if they know it going out.

“Olympus Has Fallen” HH STARRING: Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman and Angela Bassett PLOT: Disgraced former presidential guard Mike Banning finds himself trapped inside the White House in the wake of a terrorist attack. Using his inside knowledge, Banning works with national security to rescue the president from his kidnappers. RATING: R for strong violence and language throughout TIME: 2 hours VERDICT: The first of two similarly themed action dramas set for this year (“White House Down” arrives in June), “Olympus Has Fallen” will put to the test the question of whether American audiences are ready, 12 years after 9-11, to watch, strictly as disposable popcorn entertainment, a film in which the United States and some of its most prominent landmarks are devastated by foreign terrorists. The answer almost undoubtedly will be yes, as the tough-guy former agent played by Butler gets to kick a whole lot of badass butt while trying to rescue the president. Although this is the sort of film in which the fate of the world hinges, when all is said and done, on the outcome of a one-onone martial arts contest, director Antoine Fuqua’s notably bloody child of Die Hard still generates a fair amount of tension and produces the kind of nationalistic outrage that rock-ribbed Americans will feel in their guts. Foreign revenue should be hefty as well, especially in countries where many viewers will get a thrill watching Washington get the sort of treatment usually reserved for places like Baghdad and Kabul. – Todd McCarthy, The

From its opening frame, it joins the handful of live-action films worth seeing in 3-D. The first half of the story is superior, particularly when the wizard gains a pair of traveling companions, a timid flying monkey voiced by Zach Braff and a feisty little china doll. These are Gollum-quality CGI characters. When the story shifts to action, spectacle and special effects, it still is dazzling to watch, but it loses heart (and perhaps some courage and brains). – Jeffrey Westhoff, The

Northwest Herald

“Safe Haven” HH STARRING: Julianne Hough, Josh Duhamel, Cobie Smulders PLOT: A young woman with a mysterious past lands in Southport, N.C., where her bond with a widower forces her to confront the dark secret that haunts her. RATING: PG-13 for thematic material involving threatening behavior, and for violence and sexuality TIME: 1 hour, 55 minutes VERDICT: It’s easy to understand why Hollywood loves doing business with author Nicholas Sparks. His books are huge best-sellers, and several of the films adapted from his novels – “Message in a Bottle,” “The Notebook,” and “Dear John” – have achieved impressive box office grosses. The latest Sparks adaptation, “Safe Haven,” will probably continue his winning streak. A thriller element that has not been present in earlier Sparks movies is designed to draw reluctant male viewers to see the picture, but they won’t respond with the same enthusiasm as his core audience of woozy romantics. The first problem with the film is that the burgeoning romance is too flat to generate intense audience empathy. Alex’s daughter, who barely remembers her mother, warms to Katie immediately, but her older brother has a harder time with his father’s new relationship. Still, this complication isn’t especially well developed in the screenplay by Dana Stevens and Gage Lansky. A related problem is the casting. The best Sparks movie, “The Notebook,” had the strongest cast, with talented newcomers Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams balancing seasoned veterans James Garner and Gena Rowlands.

Hough, better known as a singer and dancer than a dramatic actress, is likably spunky, but Duhamel fades into the background, and there are no lively supporting players in the ensemble.– Stephen Farber, The

Hollywood Reporter

“21 & Over” HH½ STARRING: Miles Teller, Justin Chon, Johnathan Keltz PLOT: The night before his big medical school exam, a promising student celebrates his 21st birthday with his two best friends. RATING: R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language, some graphic nudity, drugs and drinking TIME: 1 hour, 33 minutes VERDICT: If you liked “The Hangover” but felt like it needed more projectile vomit, stampeding buffaloes and naughty sorority pledges being spanked, then “21 & Over” is the feel-good, feel-bad movie for you. The writers of that 2009 smash hit, Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, wrote the script here, too, and direct for the first time. Comparatively, it is simultaneously amped-up and slapped together. It is both younger and dumber but also even more equal opportunity in choosing its targets; the same people who get tooled on also rise up and enjoy a certain amount of empowerment. Sometimes this balancing act works and sometimes it doesn’t. “21 & Over” is at its best when it’s riding an all-night, boozy high, when it captures a sensation of idiotic invincibility. When it tries to be about something – growing up and being responsible but still maintaining the fun and friendships of youth – it feels a bit strained. – Christy Lemire, The Associated

Sisters square off over boy they both would like to date Dear Abby: There’s this guy I like, “Joey.” My sister likes him, too. Joey and I are not dating, although we are very close friends. My sister (of course) decided to ask him out on a date. I’m so upset with her. It has been two days since their date, and I’m still not talking to her. I can’t believe she asked him out when she knew I was about to. I don’t want to ruin our relationship, but Joey is now into her. Please give me some advice before I do something terribly wrong. – Can’t Take It In Florida Dear Can’t Take It: If your sister jumped in knowing you were interested in Joey, it was sneaky and wrong. But you have nothing to gain by

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips declaring war over it. Keep your options open and bide your time. With luck, their romance will blow over – and when it does, if you have maintained your position as Joey’s “close friend,” you can make your move then. It may take nerves of steel, but I have faith in you, and it will be worth it in the long run. Dear Abby: My niece is being married soon on the East Coast. My husband and our two teenage children have been invited to attend. We cannot afford the multi-

ple airfares and the cost of hotel accommodations that attending this wedding would require. We don’t look poor and we don’t act poor, but money is very tight right now because we’re paying for the last semester of our third child’s college tuition. I had already sent a lovely shower gift to my niece. How can we gracefully decline the invitation without offending anyone? We also have household repairs that have to be attended to. – Just

Don’t Have It In San Diego Dear Just Don’t Have It: As I see it, you have two choices -- respond by saying you have a “conflict,” or tell these relatives you would love to be

there, but with the cost of a college education these days, you can’t swing it. (I vote for the latter.) Dear Abby: I lost my mom last year. It was unexpected, and my father and I are still hurting. Mom had a friend who never fails to tell me how the loss of her mother and her husband was much more painful for her than my loss. Every time I have the unfortunate luck of answering the phone when she calls, she’ll ask how I’m doing, then launch into how hard it was on her and I don’t know the true pain that she does. I am sick of people telling me they understand how I feel and what I’m going

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff ending the pain of the extreme sadness and hopelessness you feel – and the pain you may see you are causing the people you love – by ending your life. While it may seem unlikely one treatment can affect both “poles” of bipolar disorder – the mania and the depression – it’s true. I think of it as the treatment pulling both poles back toward the middle, evening out the peaks and valleys. It diminishes thoughts of suicide. Lithium is the most widely known medication used to treat bipolar disorder, as it helps to stabilize mood, the chief goal of treatment. Like any drug, it can cause side effects – dizziness, difficulty with concentration, thyroid problems and others. And lithium doses that are too high can quickly become dangerous, causing confusion, loss of consciousness and dangerous heart rhythms. As a result,

people taking the drug need to have regular blood tests. The main alternatives to lithium are anti-seizure drugs (anticonvulsants). These drugs also treat mania and stabilize moods, but they aren’t as effective as lithium for protecting against depression and preventing suicide. There’s a good chance of relapse when you go off medications. As a result, you may need to stay on some medication or combination of medications indefinitely to keep your mood stable. Lithium is a natural substance, not an unnatural drug created by chemists in a pharmaceutical lab. It must work by changing the chemical environment in the brain. Many scientists are trying to solve how it works, because that could lead to new drugs that are equally effective but have fewer side effects and don’t require frequent bloodtest monitoring like lithium.

Dear Hole In Your Heart: I’m sorry for your loss, too, and you’re welcome. Please know no rule of etiquette says you have to listen to that woman’s insensitive prattle. The next time she starts, it is perfectly acceptable to stop her cold and tell her when she compares her pain to yours she is being insensitive, and if she does it one more time you will hang up. Clearly, she is not calling to see how you’re doing; she is calling to dump. There are times when you must protect yourself, and this is one of them. • Write Dear Abby at www. or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.


Lithium effective for bipolar disorder Dear Dr. K: I have bipolar disorder. I’ve experienced the highest highs and the lowest lows. How can one medication – lithium – treat both extremes? Dear Reader: Bipolar disorder is certainly a condition of extremes – extreme opposites. On the one hand are episodes of mania. During these episodes, people with bipolar disorder feel like they’re “on a high.” They have grandiose thoughts and pumped-up self-esteem. They need a lot less sleep than normal, but feel energized to the extreme. That energy may go into something productive, such as accomplishing a goal. But it can just as easily veer into negative territory, with racing thoughts, agitation, erratic behavior, or destructive, pleasure-seeking urges. Then there’s the other side of bipolar disorder: the sadness and hopeless feelings of depression. The feeling that you don’t have the energy or desire to do much of anything. The lack of interest in things that used to give you pleasure. Even the thoughts of

through. No one knows the depth of what I’m experiencing, except maybe my sibling. I moved back home to take care of my wonderful mother. She was my best friend. I could tell her anything, and she was never judgmental. I love her, and I hurt from her loss. Please tell people when offering condolences to just listen and be there. That’s what anyone who suffers a loss needs more than anything. Do not compare your pain to theirs. And Abby, please know how sorry I am for the loss of your own dear mother, and thank you for letting me vent.

Her show had been canceled, but that didn’t stop alternative folk and rock singer Michelle Shocked from showing up at a Santa Cruz nightclub where she staged a sit-in with tape across her mouth that read “Silenced By Fear.” Moe’s Alley was one of several nightclubs that canceled Shocked’s gigs after she made what were considered anti-gay comments during a rambling outburst at a show earlier this month. Moe’s Alley owner Bill Welch had replaced her with two local bands that support gay rights, Beaver Fever and Frootie Flavors. Sitting on the ground outside the venue and strumming her guitar, Shocked was largely ignored and refused to speak.

‘Potter’ actor dies Richard Griffiths was one of the great British stage actors of his generation, a heavy man with a light touch, whether in Shakespeare or Neil Simon. But for millions of movie fans, he will always be grumpy Uncle Vernon, the least magical of characters in the fantastical “Harry Potter” movies. Richard Griffiths Griffiths died Thursday at University Hospital in Coventry, central England, from complications following heart surgery, his agent, Simon Beresford, said. He was 65. “Harry Potter” star Daniel Radcliffe paid tribute to the actor Friday, saying “any room he walked into was made twice as funny and twice as clever just by his presence.” “I am proud to say I knew him,” Radcliffe said.

Baldwin admits tax dodge Stephen Baldwin, the youngest of four brothers in show business, said Friday he’s looking forward to “clearing the wreckage of my past.” Step 1 will be coming up with $300,000 for the tax man. Baldwin, 46, admitted in Rockland County Court he failed to pay New York state income taxes for 2008, 2009 and 2010. Under a plea bargain, he gets to stay out of jail – so he can make some money – and can have his record wiped clean if he pays the taxes within a year. His total bill in taxes, interest and penalties is $400,000, but state Supreme Court Justice Charles Apotheker said $100,000 had already been paid. Baldwin, currently appearing on “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice,” said he never intended to avoid paying taxes and got in trouble by trusting others. “Unfortunately, I got some really bad suggestions and advice ... from lawyers and accountants,” he said outside court. Baldwin, who lives in Upper Grandview, said he believes he can meet the deadline, noting his father was a schoolteacher who made $25,000 and raised six kids. “I just look forward to getting the $300,000 paid in the next year,” he said. He said he’s directing a movie starring his brother William and that other “faith-based opportunities” consistent with his principles are emerging. His lawyer said earlier this month that Baldwin would not be taking any roles like his starring turn as a professional thief with a short temper in the 1995 film “The Usual Suspects.”

Lil Wayne: I’m epileptic Lil Wayne says he’s an epileptic and has had seizures for years. In an interview with Los Angeles-based radio station Power 106 on Thursday, the 30-year-old rapper said epilepsy caused his most recent health scare earlier this month when he was rushed to a hospital. Wayne said he had three backto-back seizures. The Grammy winner says: “I’ve had a bunch of seizures, y’all just never hear about them.”

Wayne says he “could’ve died” and that the recent seizures were a result of “just plain stress, no rest, overworking myself.”

‘Bachelorette’ contestant sentenced Former “Bachelorette” contestant Kasey Kahl will avoid jail time after pleading no contest to battery stemming from a bar fight in California. The Fresno Bee reports Kahl entered the plea Thursday to a felony count of battery causing bodily injury. An assault count was dismissed. Kahl was accused of breaking a man’s nose during a fight last year in Fresno. Kahl was a contestant on ABC reality TV show’s “The Bachelorette” in 2010.

‘America’s Most Wanted’ canceled “America’s Most Wanted’ may have come to an end after 25 years. Lifetime network has confirmed it won’t be picking up the crime-fighting series for another season. But the network says it’s developing a pilot for a new project with John Walsh, who created “America’s Most Wanted” in 1988. Hosted by Walsh, the series was a fixture on the Fox network until its abrupt cancellation in June 2011. During that run, the show helped bring almost 1,200 fugitives to justice. Lifetime revived the series in December 2011, ultimately airing 44 episodes. Walsh originally launched his crime-busting crusade in 1981.

CL loses super fan Bo Leahey

Ducks have Hawks’ number CHICAGO – As Blackhawks defenseman Nick Leddy hurriedly chased after a loose puck in the frenzied final seconds of a one-goal game, the scoreboard clock rudely descended to 00.0. Isn’t a single zero enough? The final horn blared across the cavernous stadium. It seemed rude, too. Did it have to be so loud? The Blackhawks had lost, 2-1, to the Anaheim Ducks. And a sellout crowd of 22,105 – the largest of the season, which had arrived in the mood to party on a Friday night – didn’t know what to do. Typically, this is the time that everyone would sing and dance to that one-hit wonder. Instead, Hawks fans grabbed their coats and clogged the aisles. The parking lots would be a mess. “Tell Tony he’s the kiss of death!” one fan screamed to another in the upper deck. I think he was joking. But Tony, if you’re reading this, you might want to skip the next few games. This was supposed to be a statement game for the Hawks. What exactly was the statement? I think it was something along the lines of “Yawwwn… stretch… zzzzzz.” Go figure that a Southern California team named after a water bird would be such a threat. The high-flying Hawks had two days to prepare for the Ducks, who were the only team in the Western Conference that they had not beaten this season.

Crystal Lake South’s Tyler Hall pitches against Harlem in the Gators’ season opener Friday in Crystal Lake. Hall did not allow a hit or a walk and struck out six. Harlem’s Devon Walker, who reached on a second-inning error, was the Huskies’ only base runner.

Hall nearly perfect

Crystal Lake Central goalkeeper Caitlyn Dayton received numerous texts of support from her teammates Friday, many with the same message. The Tigers offered their sympathy for Dayton losing her grandfather, Bo Leahey, who died from a heart attack Thursday night. Most of them mentioned the postgame hugs they received from one of Crystal Lake’s greatest sports fans. “We always told him, ‘Stop being the creepy old man,’ ” said Mike Dayton, Caitlyn’s father. Bo’s daughter Tracey Dayton added, “And he didn’t care. He did not care.” Bo Leahey, 69, grew up in St. Louis and played catcher for Chaminade High School’s baseball team. He was an invaluable athletic backer at South, almost from the point the school opened in the fall of 1978.

Eight Gators had hits and two – right fielder Troy Bittenbender and catcher Casey Oliver – were 4 for 4.

Take Charge Indy begins final racing year By JEFF ARNOLD

AP file photo

Take Charge Indy, which won last year’s Florida Derby, will make his second run as a 4-year-old today at Gulfstream Park in the $100,000 Skip Away Stakes.

Gulfstream Park provided the setting for Take Charge Indy’s best run last year, paving a road that led to the Kentucky Derby. Now, as the 4-year-old owned by Marengo residents Chuck and Maribeth Sandford prepares for what will be his final year in racing, the Hallandale, Fla., track could set the stage for a big stretch run. Take Charge Indy will run

On TV Post time for the Skip Away Stakes, an undercard for the $1 million Florida Derby, is scheduled for 4:03 p.m. today and will air on TVG. in today’s $100,000 Skip Away Stakes, one of the races on the undercard for the $1 million Florida Derby. The race marks a big step in Take Charge Indy’s comeback after he missed more than five months after undergoing surgery to remove

a bone chip in his front left ankle after finishing 19th at Churchill Downs. While Take Charge Indy will be counted among the favorites, Chuck Sandford knows finishing on top today won’t be easy. The field includes Travers Stakes winner Golden Ticket, Louisiana Derby winner Pants on Fire and Cigar Street, another 4-year-old that runs with a lot of promise. Still, Sandford is confident. “He’s primed and ready,” Sandford said in a phone in-

terview Friday. “He’s going to run big, and if he can stay healthy, we hope to have some fun with him this year.” Sandford said Take Charge Indy will retire Dec. 1 after Sandford sold the colt’s breeding rights to Kentucky-based WinStar Farms last year. The farm agreed to allow Take Charge Indy to race again this season and has partnered with the Sandfords for this year’s campaign.

Canevello named IIAC Player of the Week As a defensive back for Loras College’s football team, Mike Canevello is used to giving out hits. The McHenry East graduate was the team’s second-leading tackler in the fall and had a pair of interceptions. On the baseball field for the NCAA Division III Duhawks, Canevello has taken his fair share of hits as the team’s leadoff hitter for the past four seasons, absorbing 31 hit by pitches. “Maybe that’s my football player mentality,” Canevello said with a laugh. “I just try to get on [base] any way I can.” Canevello has sparked Loras, located in Dubuque, Iowa, to a 5-3 start this season thanks to a .300 average and a .405 on-base percentage. On Monday, the senior outfielder was named the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Week after collecting three hits, three walks and scoring four runs in a doubleheader sweep of Monmouth College. “It was nice to represent my team [with the award],” said Canevello, who is leading Loras in runs (nine),

total bases (13), slugging percentage (.433), walks (six), on-base percentage and stolen bases (10 for 10). Canevello credited his success at the plate to having a clear head and being healthy. “I’m trying not to overthink things,” Canevello said. “I used to think about every pitch and every swing. Now, I’m just clearing my mind.” Canevello got an early start on Mike baseball this season Canevello thanks to a healthy transition from football. “This is the first year that I’ve had an injury-free offseason,” he said. “Usually, I have some nagging injury from football that has kept me from baseball. I would show up Day 1 of practice and that would be the first pitch I saw. This year, I was able to get in the [batting] cages a lot more in the offseason.” Despite Loras having seven games postponed or canceled in the past week, Canevello hopes the Duhawks can extend their season

That’s huge for us.” MAC dominance: Central Michigan University won a share of its fourth consecutive Mid-American Conference women’s gymnastics title last weekend with the help of two local athletes. Junior Emily Heinz (Jacobs) and sophomore Tori Garcia (Cary-Grove) helped CMU score 194.8 points as a team to tie Western Michigan for the title. Heinz scored a 9.8 on the balance beam, while Garcia scored a 9.775 on the vault in the MAC meet. Heinz posted career-high scores of 9.875 in the vault and 9.9 on the beam in a dual meet March 2 against Bowling Green. She posted a season-best

score in the floor exercise (9.85) March 16 against Eastern Michigan. Garcia posted a season- and career-best vault score of 9.85 on Feb. 2 in a meet against Eastern Michigan, Illinois-Chicago and Illinois State. On Monday, CMU earned its fifth consecutive berth to the NCAA regionals. The Chippewas, who are ranked No. 24 nationally, will compete in the Columbus, Ohio, regional against UCLA, LSU, Arizona, North Carolina State and the host school, Ohio State.

Swanson, a left-hander, has allowed two hits in 7⅓ innings spanning four appearances for the Bluejays (7-3). Opposing batters are hitting .091 against Swanson this season.

Crystal Lake South’s Garrett Bright fields a ground ball in the first inning against Harlem on Friday in Crystal Lake.

Gators hit 4 doubles in 2nd inning, 7 in game The Gators had four doubles in the second inning and seven Continued from page C1 for the game. Jake Bigos had two “We started strong at the top of doubles and four RBIs, Max Meitthe order and then the bottom came zler and Oliver each had a double around,” Oliver said. “It was a little and three RBIs. Tommy Gaede had hit parade we had going on. Double another double and two RBIs, and after double, we kept hitting. It was Bright had two doubles. a really successful game.” “To get 15 runs on the first day,


I would have never guessed that,” Bogda said. “A lot of people will compare our team to last year, but this is a different team. It’s quicker and faster. As long as we try to hit the ball up the middle and hit line drives, we’re going to be a team that gets some doubles with our quickness.”

‘He’s one of our all-time biggest boosters’ • LEAHEY Continued from page C1 Leahey still was working the chain gang at Gators’ football games, formerly served as booster club president, helped start the Gary Collins Shootout and rarely missed any important games. And as Mike Dayton says, if Bo knew you, he was your friend. And Bo knew everybody. “After football games, the kids would be walking by and it’s, ‘Come on Bo, let’s go,’ ” Mike said. “He had to pound fists with every guy. The kids knew him and the kids liked him. The same is true for Caitlyn’s soccer team. Occasionally he might miss a game and someone would say, ‘Hey, where’s your father-in-law?’ And I’d say, ‘I’m here.’ ” Bo being there seemed to make it official though. Because he was ubiquitous. Tracey said Bo had the flu and did not feel well Wednesday. Bo loved to talk, so when Tracey didn’t hear from him Thursday, she went to check on him and found him unconscious. Cleta Leahey, Bo’s wife, was in St. Louis

and returned to Crystal Lake on Friday afternoon. Kevin Leahey, Bo’s son, and Tracey said they practically can count on one hand the number of their games Bo missed. Now, it was the same thing with Caitlyn’s games. He saw her play March 16, when the Tigers played Mundelein to a 0-0 tie. Bo called Caitlyn on Monday when she was in Florida on a band trip to wish her “happy birthday.” Tracey said Bo, a national accounts manager who sold eggs, already was looking ahead to Thursday’s Central soccer game, knowing he was going to leave a food show an hour early to make the game on time. Bo was a salesman, a character and a coach’s best friend. “He’s one of our all-time biggest boosters,” Gators football coach Chuck Ahsmann said. “He’s always been a big promoter of everything South High School. Certainly as a coach you appreciate the parents who want to put in the time and effort to help out and make things better for the kids.” Former South boys basketball coach Gary Collins concurred. “He was a diehard Gators fan, booster, the whole thing,” Collins

said. “He always did what you asked. You could always count on him to do a great job. Those guys are hard to come by. It’s a major loss for the South athletic program.” One of Bo’s favorite claims was that, no matter what the weather, he wore shorts while working the chains at South football games. For road games, he’d wear pants, but the official home uniform was shorts. “He loved the attention, that’s why he wore the shorts,” Caitlyn said. Bo’s fervor started well before Tracey and Kevin were in high school, and extended well after they graduated. If South wasn’t playing somewhere, he’d go watch another big football playoff or basketball tournament game. “You couldn’t keep up with him,” Mike said. “He lived from that moment to the next moment to the next moment through those kids on the fields and courts.”

MURPH’S ’MOTE Kevin Murphy

Warriors split twin bill Warming bats and stout pitching had the McHenry baseball team on pace for a pair of wins over Hononegah on Friday. But the Warriors gave up seven runs in the final three innings of Game 2 and lost, 7-4, at Petersen Park after rallying for a 4-3 win in Game 1. McHenry batters combined for seven doubles on the day, and junior Robert Nagel picked up the Game 1 win in relief after he allowed no runs on two hits, struck out two and walked one in three innings. “[Nagel] came in for the fourth inning with the game tied and threw the ball really well,” McHenry coach Brian Rockweiler said. Senior Jordan Witbeck drove in Adam Mattson in the fifth inning of Game 1 to seal the victory. Devon Gehrke drove in two runs on a pair of doubles in the second game, but senior Nick Svoboda took the loss in Game 2 for the Warriors (2-2 overall). Jacobs 9, Grant 7: At Fox Lake, Ben Murray drove in four runs with a home run and a single, and Greg Sidor and Grant Kale hit doubles as the Golden Eagles (1-0) completed a five-run, seventh-inning rally to snag a nonconference win.

mound with five strikeouts in two appearances. Illini contributor: Huntley grad Jenna Mychko ranks third in RBIs this spring for the Illinois softball team. Mychko, who is batting a career-best .257 for the Illini (10-15), has contributed seven RBIs. The junior catcher has started 13 times this season. On March 3, Mychko was 2 for 2 and threw out a runner at third base in an 11-2 victory against Providence. Strong Miami debut: DundeeCrown grad Jake Romano, a freshman outfielder for the Miami (Ohio) University baseball team, is batting a team-best .381 this spring for the Redhawks. Romano, who has driven in four runs, has started six times this season. He has a .480 on-base percentage.

be ahead. Sandford said Friday that Rosie Napravnik, who holds the distinction of being the highest-placing female finisher in Kentucky Derby history, will ride Take Charge Indy today. Napravnik also is slated to ride Shanghai Bobby in the Florida Derby, the race Take Charge Indy won last year at Gulfstream Park to qualify for the Kentucky Derby. Sandford said there’s a good chance he and Napravnik also “could do some

business together” later this season. A good finish today, Sandford said, would be a big stepping stone for what he and Byrne hope is a successful finish to Take Charge Indy’s career. “That’s the plan – all he has to do is make it work,” he said. “Physically, he’s 100 percent. We’re peaked, but we still have to go out and we have to win it. It’s not easy. We’re running at the highest level we can run at.”

OK, so the Bulls are injured. That didn’t stop them from ending the Miami Heat’s 27-game winning streak. And the status of Derrick Rose is dragging on longer than a soap opera. Actually, I probably could go into a soap opera coma for six months, come out and people still will be complaining that Rose isn’t playing yet. But the Bulls continue to fight despite injuries and inconsistencies. Gotta love a team that never gives up. They did put together wins against the Pacers and the Timberwolves last weekend, and that should give Bulls fans enough to hope for the rest of the season.

NHL: Blackhawks at Red Wings, 11:30 a.m. Sunday, NBC Celebrate Easter morning with the Hawks. Instead of finding Easter eggs, maybe the Hawks can find some goals and some wins. The Hawks stay busy with their fourth game in seven days. The Hawks have won both games against the Red Wings this season with both an overtime and shootout win.

SET THE DVR Men’s basketball: NCAA tournament, Syracuse vs. Marquette, 3:30 p.m. today, CBS This game is worth saving on the DVR. A trip to the Final Four? Big East bragging rights? Oh, this one should be a dandy. Marquette held off Syracuse, 74-71, on Feb. 25. Marquette is a team that finished 14-4 in the Big East to earn a share of the conference title with Louisville and Georgetown. Syracuse wasn’t that far behind at 11-7. These two teams combined to finish with four losses against non-Big East teams. Syracuse’s only loss was Temple, but the Orange have improved after losing four of five in late February and early March.

CATCH THE HIGHLIGHTS LATER Women’s basketball: NCAA tournament, regional semifinal, Louisville vs. Baylor, 5:30 p.m. Sunday, ESPN2 How many times will Brittney Griner dunk? Griner had 33 points and a career-high 22 rebounds to go with her three dunks in Baylor’s 85-47 win over Florida State on Tuesday night. She changes the game completely. Baylor has been stopped only once this season, and that was when its point guard Odyssey Sims played only four minutes because of a hamstring injury. There’s no reason Baylor should slow down now, barring injuries.

Michigan stuns KU in OT The ASSOCIATED PRESS ARLINGTON, Texas – Trey Burke never doubted he could lead Michigan to its deepest NCAA tournament run since the Fab Five era. Not after a scoreless first half. Not when the Wolverines trailed top-seeded Kansas by 14 with less than 7 minutes left – or by 5 with 21 seconds left. And definitely not when he got the ball in his hands and the seconds draining away. Burke scored all 23 of his points in the second half and overtime, including a long, tying 3-pointer in the final moments of regulation as Michigan rallied to beat Kansas 87-85 in the South Regional semifinals Friday night. “We never lost faith out there,” Burke said. “We stuck it out together.” Ben McLemore had 20 points to lead the Jayhawks (31-6), who looked to be on their way to a third straight regional final before Michigan’s improbable rally. Instead, they became the third No. 1 seed to fall in this tournament, joining Gonzaga and Indiana. “Well, this will certainly go down as one of the toughest games that obviously we’ve been a part of and I’ve been a part of,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “But props to Michigan for making all the plays late.” That’s for sure. The fourth-seeded Wolverines (29-7) were down

The Jayhawks couldn’t do it. Burke’s tying shot – he pulled up from well beyond the arc just left of the key – came with 4.2 seconds left after Elijah Johnson missed a free throw and Michigan got the rebound. Moments earlier, with 21 seconds remaining, Johnson had hit two from the line to keep the Kansas lead at five. Burke had scored on a layup to get Michigan back to within three. “We never had the mindset that we were going to lose the game,” Burke said. “When we were down 14, we knew anything could still happen. It’s March, anything can happen.”

a field goal until five minutes were gone in the second half, and Oregon could never recover from its poor start. Duke 71, Michigan St. 61: At Indianapolis, Seth Curry shot Duke right into the regional finals – and put Mike Krzyzewski on the verge of another major milestone. Curry scored 29 points to lead the second-seeded Blue Devils past third-seeded Michigan State 71-61 on Friday night and into the Midwest Regional final. If Duke (30-5) beats top-seeded Louisville (32-5) in Sunday’s regional final, Krzyzewski would tie John Wooden’s record with 12 Final Four trips. Michigan State (27-9) just couldn’t keep up with Curry and Duke’s shooters. The Spartans were led by Keith Appling with 16 points and Adreian Payne with 14.

Louisville 77, Oregon 69: At Indianapolis, Even a nasty cold can’t stop Russ Smith. With his teammates struggling with the virus he gave them and top-seeded Louisville facing its toughest test of the postseason, Russ put on his best show yet. He matched his career high of 31 points and the Cardinals proved they can win close games, too, beating Oregon. “Without Russ Smith, we couldn’t win,” said Louisville coach Rick Pitino, who improved to 11-0 in the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament. Louisville (32-5) moves on to play Duke on Sunday, hoping to advance to the Final Four for the second straight year. E.J. Singler’s 15 points led five Ducks (28-9) in double figures. But Damyean Dotson had an off night, held without

Rivalry game in regional championship guarantees Big East spot in Final Four By JIM O’CONNELL The Associated Press WASHINGTON – When two teams from the same conference meet with a Final Four berth at stake, fans think it’s great from a rivalry and bragging rights perspective. Conference administrators hear cash registers ringing as NCAA shares are earned. But coaches? Not a chance. Today’s Marquette-Syracuse game will be the ninth time since the field expanded to 64 teams that two schools from the same conference played in the regional final. The first of those nine times was in 1987. Georgetown, a No. 1 seed just four years from winning a national championship, met Providence, an up-andcoming program under upand-coming coach Rick Pitino, in the South Regional final.

Georgetown coach John Thompson was asked Friday about playing a team from the same conference with such a big prize at stake. Three times, he colorfully said that it was a pain in the posterior. “They know you and you know them. There’s no surprise. No Jim Boeheim coach wants to get somebody from within your league,” said Thompson, who is working as a radio analyst. “When they watch tape it’s not Georgetown-Villanova or Georgetown-Syracuse, it’s Georgetown and you. You’re in the film as you’re watching it. “It’s hard enough to beat a team you know nothing about. It’s a lot harder to beat

a team that knows you really well.” Neither Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim nor Marquette coach Buzz Williams described what they were about to face in the same terms as Thompson, but it was easy to tell they weren’t thrilled about the opponent. “They know Buzz Williams us, that’s a fact, they know how to play against us, they’re used to that, and we understand them, what they do,” said Boeheim, who is trying to lead the Orange to the Final Four for the fourth time. “So I think that’s all part of playing somebody that you know. They’re going to understand what to do and hopefully we will understand what we need to do as well.”

Williams, who is a win away from his first Final Four, didn’t mince words. “I don’t want to play Syracuse again,” he said. “You know them and you know their zone, I know all that. I don’t want to play them. I would rather play somebody else. But it’s part of having so many good teams in our league that go to the NCAA tournament.” Marquette won the only meeting this season, 74-71, after trailing by as many as 11 points. It was their only meeting because of the unbalanced schedule that comes with a 15team league. In the past, some of the conference opponents playing for a Final Four berth had met three times before the tournament, and sometimes that had a lot to do with who moved on.

Farewell to the greatest hoops conference ever Thanks for nothing, greedy college administrators. Because of you, we’re bidding farewell to the greatest basketball conference there ever was – and perhaps ever will be. At least the Big East as we knew it is going out in style. That’s only appropriate, given all it has meant to the game over the past three-plus decades. But watching Syracuse and Marquette advance to a regional final, assuring one will make it to the Final Four, and knowing top-seeded Louisville very well could give the league another team in Atlanta only heightens the sting of what’s about to happen. Seven basketball-playing schools are jumping off a sinking ship to form a new version of the Big East, joined by three other schools that don’t have major football programs. That league will carry on the legacy of what was launched in 1979, but it’s unreasonable to expect “Big East, The Sequel” to come anywhere close to matching the impact of the original. For this, we should all be ticked off. Seriously, when does it stop? Not anytime soon, I’m afraid. In the mess that is college realignment, we’ve seen longtime rivalries ripped apart, once-sturdy leagues now scrambling for their lives or gone altogether, schools falling over themselves to start football programs or move up to the Football Bowl Subdivision – all in the name of the almighty dollar. Supposedly, this is progress. Just try telling that to a hoops fan. The major conferences have far too much power, there’s no one with the backbone or the authority to bring a little sanity to the madness, and we’re left with a wake for the Big East. “It’s a good league, always been a good league,” Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said Friday, talking about the league his school soon will be leaving. The Orange’s next loss – or three more wins – will mark the end of their time in a conference they helped start. When this latest round of football-driven Scrabble is done, we’ll have Syracuse playing in the Atlantic Coast Conference instead of the Big East (ditto for Pittsburgh and Notre Dame), we’ll have Maryland playing in the Big Ten instead of the ACC, and we’ll have once-mighty UConn playing in some new league with a bunch of Southeastern and Southwestern schools that used to comprise Conference USA. Seriously, schools are changing conferences about as often as Taylor Swift writes a breakup song – maybe she could do one for the Big East – and there still is no indication that the dust is close to settling. UConn might wind up in the ACC, too. Or maybe some ACC schools will bolt for the Southeastern Conference. After all, as Derek Dooley once said: It’s not really about the money – it’s about the amount. At this very moment, there surely is some college president or athletic director or booster trying to figure out a way to squeeze a few more bucks out of the pie. Who cares if college kids have to take cross-country trips on school nights for conference games? Who cares if a once-great basketball conference is carved up like an apple pie at a Fourth of July picnic?

VIEWS Paul Newberry “There’s no question leaving the Big East will be sad,” Syracuse assistant coach Mike Hopkins said, taking a second to think long-term amid the instant gratification of facing Marquette today for a trip to the Final Four. “It already is in so many ways.” No one has taken a bigger beating in all this conference realignment than the Big East, largely because of a decision it made about a decade after its founding to add football to its roster of sports. A bunch of schools giddily joined up, but they had no loyalty to the original concept. Of the eight teams that first played Big East football, seven already have moved on to other conferences or soon will be. Because of that, we might never again see one conference put three teams in the Final Four, as the Big East did in 1985 with Villanova (the eventual national champion), Georgetown and St. John’s – certainly not a league that has nine teams, which was the Big East membership at the time. If conferences continue to expand, we might see a league match the record 11 teams the Big East put in the NCAA field two years ago in its more bloated alignment – though, that’s the very state that contributed to its demise. No matter what, there’s no denying what the Big East once was – and still is for another week or so. The best in the land. “I wish we weren’t playing each other,” said Marquette coach Buzz Williams, whose school will be moving on to the new Big East. “Maybe if we were in different regions, maybe we could both continue to play.” Very shortly, it won’t matter. All that will be left are memories, tattered clippings and old TV footage. Thankfully, Boeheim took a moment to reflect Friday during his turn at the podium. “It’s remarkable that you could start a league and it could be good right away, like the Big East was,” he said wistfully, remembering some of the early stars such as Patrick Ewing, Chris Mullin, Pearl Washington and Walter Berry. “It has been an unbelievable 34 years. Over that 34-year period, it’s been as good as any league. You can easily make that argument.” Boeheim said he understands why it’s happening, even though it really has nothing to do with his sport. “It was almost inevitable that the football schools would need to get with football schools,” he said. “I think it will work for the basketball schools now that they’re going to get together, and they will have a really good basketball league. I think that’s for the best. I think it will work out, and we have a great challenge going to what will be a tremendous basketball league.” Sorry, Jim, we disagree. There’s nothing good about breaking up the Big East. Maybe there will come a day when we’ll at least acknowledge that it was all a big mistake, acknowledge how much we’ve lost. At that point, of course, it will be far too late to do anything about it. Thanks for nothing.

Ducks’ win puts them 3 points behind Hawks By MATT CARLSON The Associated Press CHICAGO – Sheldon Souray scored with 2:08 left in regulation to break a tie, Jonas Hiller made 25 saves and the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Blackhawks, 2-1, on Friday to end a four-game losing streak. Souray’s drive through a screen from the left point hit the stick of Hawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson and deflected past Ray Emery, who suffered his first loss of the season. Anaheim’s Corey Perry scored at 1:15 of the second period in the meeting of the top two teams in the Western Conference, played before a season-high of 22,105 at the United Center. With the win, Anaheim (23-7-4) improved to 50 points, three behind the conference-leading Hawks (25-5-3). Patrick Kane scored a power-play goal for the Hawks at 2:26 of the third period to extend his point streak to eight games. He has six goals and nine assists during the span. Anaheim, which had been outscored 15-6 during its slide, tightened up defensively and checked the Hawks closely through much of the game. Emery, 12-1-0 this season, made 22 saves. The Ducks hadn’t won since March 20, when they ral-

The Ducks’ Sheldon Souray (second from left) celebrates with teammates Ryan Getzlaf (left) Francois Beauchemin (second from right) and Bobby Ryan (right) after scoring against the Blackhawks in the third period Friday night at the United Center. The Hawks lost, 2-1.

Next at Detroit, 11:30 a.m. Sunday, NBC, AM-720 lied late in the third period to beat the Hawks, 4-2. Anaheim swept its season series from the Hawks, winning all three games. The Hawks played again with two of their top forwards, Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp, who are out with upper-body injuries. Hossa missed his fourth game and Sharp sat out his ninth. Both Emery and Hiller made a handful of tough saves in an evenly played, scoreless first period in which both teams had nine shots.

After keeping the Hawks off the board in the first Friday, the Ducks jumped in front 1-0 on Perry’s goal 1:15 into the second. After skating down the right wing, Perry fired from the outside of the right circle and fooled Emery with a shot that slipped between his pads. Once they got the lead, the Ducks tightened their defensive coverage and the Hawks’ top players struggled to find space in the second period. The Hawks’ Brandon Saad was set up for a prime attempt by Kane about seven minutes into the second, but his shot was blocked by Ryan Getzlaf. The Hawks’ Nick Leddy hit the left post with a drive from the left point midway through the second.

MILWAUKEE – The White Sox are planning to use Hector Santiago in long relief at the beginning of the season, and the left-hander sure looks ready to go. Santiago pitched three perfect innings, and the Sox allowed only three hits in a 7-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. Matt Lindstrom yielded a two-run homer to Ryan Braun in the fourth, but five relievers then closed it out for the Sox. Donnie Veal, Nate Jones and Addison Reed each pitched a hitless inning. “It feels good to be on the pitching staff with the arms we have,” Lindstrom said. “We’re busting our butts and

doing what we can to put up zeroes.” Lindstrom said Santiago throws five different pitches. “When he’s commanding them, he can be really tough,” Lindstrom said. Adam Dunn went 3 for 3 with two RBIs for the Sox, who finished with 12 hits. Jeff Keppinger and Paul Konerko each drove in a run. Braun hit a one-out drive to left after Norichika Aoki reached on an error on shortstop Alexei Ramirez leading off the inning. “Unfortunately, I didn’t

Ducks seem to pose a problem come playoffs • MUSICK Continued from page C1 The Hawks had managed only four goals in their first two games against the Ducks, and Friday offered the final meeting of the regular season. Make that zero for three. Now, a few lackluster games against the same opponent should not diminish the Hawks’ terrific start. The Hawks dropped to 25-5-3, which is nothing to shake a hockey stick at, and they remain atop the conference in most goals scored and fewest goals allowed. But Anaheim does seem to pose a problem as the playoffs approach. At 23-7-4, the Ducks have established themselves as the conference’s best team west of the Fox River. The playoffs are less than a month

way, and if the next dozen or so games hold to form, that means the Ducks will have the No. 2 seed right behind the top-seeded Hawks. Here’s hoping another team sends Anaheim quacking, er, packing before the conference finals. Because it’s tough to explain, but strange things happen when the Hawks play the Ducks. Strange thing No. 1: Hawks defenseman Brent Seabrook stands in front of the blue line with his team on the power play. The puck scoots to him but somehow bounces over his stick, and Seabrook loses a foot race to Ducks winger Emerson Etem, which leads to a short-handed scoring chance. Says the crowd: “Ohhh!” Strange thing No. 2: Hawks forward Viktor Stalberg stands near the crease as a shot by Leddy bounces off the

post and ricochets directly to him. Stalberg has the puck on his stick and an open net a few feet away, but he somehow misses wide. Says the crowd: “Ohhh!” Strange thing No. 3: Hawks forward Jimmy Hayes charges toward the net in search of his second goal since arriving from Rockford two weeks ago. Hayes winds up for a point-blank shot, but his stick breaks as it meets the ice, and he turns toward the bench for another work tool. Says the crowd: “Ohhh!” Before too long, the scoreboard hits 00.0, the final horn blares, and everyone looks around. Oh.

get that ball in far enough on Braunie tonight,” Lindstrom said. “He’s a pretty good hitter, you know.” Jesse Crain pitched the fifth inning for the Sox in his third appearance in the past five days, strengthening his case for a spot on the Opening Day roster. If he feels good after this final test, he’s set. If not, he probably will begin the year on the 15-day disabled list. Crain pitched in only three games this spring because of a strained right adductor. Sox right fielder Alex Rios went 1 for 2 with two walks and scored two runs. He returned to the starting lineup after being sidelined by a sore lower back. Bryan Anderson hit a solo homer in the ninth for the Sox,

Interleague intrigue, all the time Ten things to know for the 2013 MLB season An around-the-bases look at the 2013 major league season that starts Sunday when the Texas Rangers visit the Houston Astros: 1. STAR SIGHTINGS ... Glam slam in LA! Josh Hamilton joined Albert Pujols and Mike Trout in a juicy Angels lineup, Zack Greinke zeroed in on the Dodgers. Other top winter destinations: Toronto (R.A. Dickey, Jose Reyes, Melky Cabrera, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle) and Boston (Ryan Dempster, Shane Victorino, Mike Napoli). 2. MAKING THEIR MOVES ... A half-dozen new managers. Terry Francona (Cleveland), John Farrell (Boston), Mike Redmond (Miami), Bo Porter (Houston) and John Gibbons (Toronto), plus the most intriguing hire: Former shortstop Walt Weiss goes from high school coach to big league skipper in Colorado. 3. REMEMBER ME? Tigers slugger Victor Martinez was injured for all of 2012. Mariano Rivera, Troy Tulowitzki and Jose Bautista also finished on the disabled list. They’re back, along with Derek Jeter and Carl Crawford. Let’s wait to see Hanley Ramirez, David Wright and Mark Teixeira – they got hurt at the World Baseball Classic. 4. WE PLAY WHO? The Astros’ shift from the NL to the AL leaves 15 teams in each league. That’ll mean an interleague game most every day. The new-wave scheduling starts Monday when the Angels visit Cincinnati in a decidedly nontraditional opener. 5. SPEAKING OF THE ASTROS ... With a team payroll less than Alex Rodriguez’s salary and coming off 107 losses, Houston could be way out of its league. A possible result: AL West opponents might feast on the Astros, run up win totals and produce both wild cards. 6. OH, BROTHER ... Nearly 100 sets of siblings have teamed up in big league history. The Alomars, the Boones, the Ripkens – heck, three Alous once played in the outfield for the Giants. Next up, B.J. and Justin Upton for the Braves. Their parents will keep a watchful eye; they already have season tickets at Turner Field. 7. UPON FURTHER REVIEW ... No additional replay this year. Baseball still is trying to decide what to review (out or safe at first base?), which video technology to use and who should make the call. Stand by for 2014. Maybe. 8. DEBATES ON THE FIELD ... Fans in Washington still wonder how far they could’ve gone last year if Stephen Strasburg didn’t get shut down. There’s no innings limit on the ace now, as the Nats try to bring the World Series to D.C. San Francisco, meanwhile, aims to win the title for the third time in four years. 9. DEBATES OFF THE FIELD ... RBIs vs. VORP. ERA vs. BABIP. The Miguel Cabrera-Mike Trout MVP race ramped up the rhetoric between new stats and old values. Both sides dug in, the arguments got louder, the insults intensified. A little more listening, a lot less yelling might show there’s plenty of middle ground. 10. SEE YA AROUND ... Get your tickets now for the Mariano Rivera Farewell Tour. Go see Mo and leave with a memory. Many opposing hitters already got souvenirs – splinters of their bats he shattered with that cut fastball. – Ben Walker, The Associated Press

Untraditional schedule will make ’13 season ‘totally different’ By BEN WALKER The ASSOCIATED PRESS On a windy morning at spring training, a trio of Phillies catchers met behind the batting cage to shoot the breeze. The topic? Interleague intrigue, right from the get-go. “We were just talking about that in batting practice that it’s a little weird to face the American League so early,” All-Star Carlos Ruiz said. “But it’s a different schedule this year.” Sure is. Josh Hamilton and the Los Angeles Angels visit Cincinnati in an opener that’s hardly traditional. Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers finish the season at Miami – minus a designated hitter. Derek Jeter and the Yankees cross over to the National League each month, then host World Series champion San Francisco in late September. Just a guess – New York fans will howl at the prospect of seeing Matt Cain and the pitching-rich Giants if a playoff spot is at stake. Add up the scattered AL vs. NL matchups, it’s like a miniWorld Series most every day. “It’s going to be totally different,” said Houston manager Bo Porter, one of six new skippers in the majors. Might as well blame Porter’s Astros, too. Their shift from the NL Central to the AL West left 15 teams in each league, creating all this havoc. Opening Day is Sunday in Houston when Texas comes to town. That’s followed by Angels-Reds on Monday. A few days later, Philadelphia plays its home opener – against the Kansas City Royals. Just sounds jarring, doesn’t it? “It is very strange,” Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker said. “This usually doesn’t happen until June or July.” “What it does is it increases your workload on scouting, advance reports and things like that. You don’t have a lot of familiarity on those teams,” he said. Part of baseball’s changing landscape, commissioner Bud Selig said. “I’m very protective of interleague play, but everybody convinced me it that would work from Day One, and I’m satisfied it will,” he said. “We have to quit worrying about it. We play 162 games. The season is a long journey. It’s not a sprint. When the year is over, everybody has played everybody else. When you play it is no reason not to do something,” he said. As the season approached,

Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg warms up in the bullpen before the start of a spring training game against the Braves on March 11 in Viera, Fla. The Nationals shut down their ace late last season so he wouldn’t pitch too many innings, and fizzled in their first playoff appearance. There will be no limits on Strasburg or the Nats this time around. a lot of big names settled into new settings. Hamilton left Texas for the Angels, teaming with Albert Pujols and Mike Trout in a most fearsome lineup. Zack Greinke got $147 million to pitch for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Brothers Justin and B.J. Upton wound up together in Atlanta’s outfield. Kyle Lohse signed with Milwaukee a week before the opener. The Toronto Blue Jays, out of the postseason since winning their second straight title in 1993, made the boldest moves. They traded for reigning Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey, Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle and signed Melky Cabrera. “Talent alone doesn’t win,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons cautioned. Especially if stars are sidelined. New Mets captain David Wright, Hanley Ramirez and Mark Teixeira got hurt at the World Baseball Classic. Jeter, Curtis Granderson, Chase Headley and David Freese are out for Opening Day, the futures of Alex Rodriguez and Johan Santana are in doubt. Several top players are on the mend, though. All-time saves leader Mariano Rivera begins his farewell tour after missing most of last year with a knee injury. John Lackey and Victor Martinez were absent for the entire season and Jose Bautista, Troy Tulowitzki and Carl Crawford finished on the DL. Stephen Strasburg wasn’t active at the end, either. The Washington Nationals shut down their ace so he wouldn’t pitch too many innings, and fizzled in their first playoff appearance. No limits on Strasburg or the Nats this time around. “I’m excited. I think everybody in the baseball world, not just us, is really excited to see him all year,” 20-year-old Washington star Bryce Harper said. Fans in Detroit, San Francisco and St. Louis can count on seeing familiar faces for a while. As a long, long spring

training wound down, Tigers ace Justin Verlander, Giants MVP Buster Posey and St. Louis star Adam Wainwright signed long-term deals. In the meantime, teams are figuring out how to prepare for this funny season. Previously, Porter said, it was easy to plan for blocks of interleague games. “A lot of times, a National League team would call up a DH-type guy during that segment of their schedule,” he said. “Now, that’s hard to do because you’re going to have interleague taking place the entire course of the season. It definitely changes roster construction.” Porter already has his pitchers in the cage, working on their bunting. Too soon for Verlander and the Tigers’ staff to swing away. “We’ll have to hit some, but it’s a Catch-22 because I don’t want Verlander breaking his finger,” Detroit manager Jim Leyland said. As for his AL Central champions closing on the road against the Marlins, “whatever is good for baseball,” the 68-year-old Leyland said. “We have a designated hitter in the All-Star game, instant replay. Things change and if it is good for the game, I am all for it,” he said. The Tigers, Boston, Toronto and Seattle each play at NL parks in September, leaving them a hitter short. For that reason, Leyland suggests interleague games down the stretch should he played at AL parks. “It’s definitely an advantage for the National League,” Leyland said. “It works out more advantageous to them. I think eventually they’ll go uniform.” Adds Rays manager Joe Maddon: “It’s going to be clunky at the end.” Baltimore doesn’t play its first NL road games until Memorial Day, but has eight straight out West in August. Orioles catcher Matt Wieters figures he’ll spend more time “going over scouting reports on new hitters we haven’t seen.”

St. Louis doesn’t see an AL opponent until it plays Kansas City in late May. But the Royals go to Philadelphia and Atlanta in the first 2½ weeks. When interleague play started in 1997, Cardinals pitcher Jake Westbrook said, “it was something new and it seemed odd to a lot of people. The DH, same thing with that longer ago.” “The idea of interleague play most every day, this is something else new. That’s always been a question with interleague play – it’s unbalanced, who plays who,” he said. Baker is hoping for an early edge when Pujols arrives. “In the case of us playing the Angels, does Albert not play? Does he DH? I wouldn’t mind if Albert just spectated,” he said. “He’d be a mean pinch hitter. He’s probably greasing his glove right now.” Later that week, Phillies great Mike Schmidt will test his arm. He was the MVP of the 1980 World Series when Philadelphia beat George Brett and the Royals – the Hall of Famers are set to throw out the first balls when Kansas City visits Citizens Bank Park for the first time since 2004. “Playing your home opener against an AL team is weird,” Schmidt said. “Where’s the charm in that?” Also this season: • Along with Porter and Gibbons, the new managers are Terry Francona in Cleveland, John Farrell in Boston, Mike Redmond in Miami and Walt Weiss in Colorado. • Major League Baseball didn’t expand replay this year. Tags, plays at first base, traps – no consensus yet on what to review or how to do it. • The Mets host the All-Star Game at Citi Field on July 16. It’s been a while since the showcase was held in Queens – Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays got top billing at Shea Stadium in 1964. • Former MVPs Miguel Tejada (Royals) and Jason Giambi (Indians) earned spots this season. Tejada was out of the majors last year.


James’ 36 lifts Heat over Hornets Bryant has NEW ORLEANS – LeBron James scored 36 points, hitting six consecutive 3-pointers in less than six minutes during the first half, and the Miami Heat rebounded from their first loss in nearly two months to beat the New Orleans Hornets, 108-89, on Friday night. The Heat, whose 27-game winning streak ended by the Bulls on Wednesday, looked ready to start a new one while clinching the top seed for the Eastern Conference playoffs. James kept shooting 3-pointers after making his first one with 1:55 left in the first quarter, and he did not miss until he already had set a season high with his sixth. Celtics 118, Hawks 107: At Boston, Paul Pierce had 20 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds, and Jeff Green scored 27 points to carry Boston to

the victory over Atlanta. Jason Terry was 5 of 7 on 3-pointers and finished with 24 points for Boston, which won its second straight following a five-game losing streak. Grizzlies 103, Rockets 94: At Memphis, Tenn., Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol scored 21 points apiece and Memphis snapped a two-game losing streak. Randolph added 12 rebounds, Tony Allen scored 16 points, connecting on 8 of 12 shots, and Mike Conley finished with 15 points and 10 assists. Knicks 111, Bobcats 102: At New York, J.R. Smith scored 37 points, his third consecutive 30-point outing, and New York beat Charlotte for its season-high seventh straight victory. Carmelo Anthony had 32 points and Raymond Felton added 18 for the Knicks, who

CHICAGO – The Bears and former New York Jets guard Matt Slauson have agreed to a one-year contract. The team announced the deal Friday. Bears general manager Phil Emery said Slauson’s size and strength will make him a challenger for a starting guard position. Slauson, 6-foot-5, 315-pounds, started 48 of 51 games with the Jets. New York drafted him out of Nebraska in 2009. Last season he didn’t allow any sacks. Slauson was listed on New York’s injury report with a knee injury last season.

Bears re-sign backup quarterback McCown



Bears, Slauson agree on 1-year contract

have the longest current streak in the NBA. They built a 30-point lead that was reduced to single digits for the second game in a row. Magic 97, Wizards 92: At Orlando, Fla., Tobias Harris had 30 points and 11 rebounds to help the Orlando Magic break an eight-game losing streak. Maurice Harkless added 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds, while reserves E’Twaun Moore and Andrew Nicholson scored 15 and 14, respectively, for Orlando. 76ers 97, Cavaliers 87: At Cleveland, Evan Turner scored 23 points and Philadelphia sent Cleveland to its season-high seventh straight loss. Jrue Holiday had 20 points and Thaddeus Young added 18 for the Sixers, who are 2-16 on the road since Jan. 2. Philadelphia used a 20-2 run that began late in the second

quarter and extended into the third to take control of the game. Turner, who had three points at halftime, scored 13 in the first seven minutes of the third quarter. Raptors 99, Pistons 82: At Auburn Hills, Mich., DeMar DeRozan and Rudy Gay scored 21 points apiece and Toronto ended a five-game skid by extending Detroit’s home losing streak to eight games. Spurs 104, Clippers 102: At San Antonio, Tim Duncan had a season-high 34 points, including a game-winning three-point play with 2.2 seconds left, and San Antonio outlasted Los Angeles. Nuggets 109, Nets 87: At Denver, Rookie Evan Fournier scored a season-high 19 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter, and Denver extended their home winning streak to 18 games by beating Brooklyn.

bone spur in left foot The ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES – Kobe Bryant is likely to play for the Los Angeles Lakers tonight against the Sacramento Kings despite a bone spur in his left foot. The Lakers listed Bryant as probable Friday. The fifth-leading scorer in NBA history left the Bradley Center using a crutch Thursday after the Lakers’ 113-103 loss to Milwaukee. Bryant has been bothered by the bone spur for several games, and he got treatment on the injury in Sacramento on Friday. Bryant’s injury apparently isn’t related to his sprained left ankle, which occurred earlier in Atlanta.

LAKE FOREST – The Bears re-signed backup quarterback Josh McCown, agreeing to a one-year contract Friday. The 33-year-old McCown finished the past two years with the Bears, joining them each season in November after starter Jay Cutler was injured. In 10 NFL seasons with Arizona, Detroit, Oakland, Carolina and the Bears, he has started 33 of 50 games and completed 645 passes for 6,998 yards and 37 touchdowns.

Bulls sign Thomas to 2nd 10-day contract CHICAGO – The Bulls signed forward Malcolm Thomas to another 10-day contract Friday. Thomas has appeared in one game for the Bulls, and had three points and five rebounds in five games with the Golden State Warriors.

Cowboys, Romo agree on 6-year, $108M extension ARLINGTON, Texas – Tony Romo has a chance to start for the Dallas Cowboys longer than Roger Staubach or Troy Aikman. The question is whether he ever will match their Super Bowl pedigrees. Romo and the Cowboys agreed to a six-year contract extension worth $108 million Friday, with about half of that guaranteed to make him the highest-paid player in franchise history.

Verlander, Tigers agree to $180M, 7-year deal LAKELAND, Fla. – For Justin Verlander, $180 million was enough. No need to wait two seasons, become a free agent and find out how much baseball’s biggest spenders would offer. “I wondered what it would be like to test free agency, but the pull of Detroit was too much,” the Tigers’ ace said Friday after agreeing to a seven-year contract, the richest deal for a pitcher in baseball history. “Once spring training started, I knew I wanted to stay.” Verlander’s deal broke the record for pitchers set just a month earlier when Seattle’s Felix Hernandez agreed to a $175 million, seven-year contract.

Posey gets $167M, 9-year deal from Giants SAN FRANCISCO – Buster Posey is the San Francisco Giants’ new franchise man. The Giants rewarded the NL MVP and batting champion catcher with a $167 million, nine-year contract Friday, a deal that includes a club option for 2022 that could raise the value to $186 million over a decade.

Garcia agrees to minor league deal with Orioles SARASOTA, Fla. – Pitcher Freddy Garcia agreed to a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles, five days after he was released by the San Diego Padres. The 36-year-old right-hander was 1-4 with an 8.71 ERA in six spring training starts for the Padres. – Wire reports

Proud and amazed by our community The Harvard chamber has always been known to be “the front door to the community” and after this past month we continue to be proud and amazed by our community. As many of you know, our past President Barbara Rowe has been ill for a short time and is now in need of a new kidney. After speaking with her husband, Dick, I learned that even if you sell insurance for a living, no amount can ever prepare you for the ongoing medical bills and other financial burdens that come with a disease. We knew we had to do something and reached out to the community, businesses, friends, family and strangers to help raise enough money to help the best we could. A small core group of volunteers worked together to organize and plan two fundraisers that included a spaghetti dinner at the Harvard Moose Lodge and a meat raffle at Bopp’s Bar & Grill. We set a goal of $10,000 and have raised $9,618.96. There are so many people to thank that came out, donated their time, money, and items to make the past two events very successful. We wish we could thank each and every one that contributed in some way but gratefully there are too many of you to list. Thank you all again for your generosity and making Harvard such a wonderful place to live and work. Donations are still being accepted at The Harvard Savings Bank, 58 N. Ayer St. Make your donation payable to the Barbara Rowe Benefit Fund. *** On April 6, the Harvard chamber will be hosting its annual Business Showcase and Community Garage Sale at Crosby Elementary School, 401 Hereley Drive, Harvard. We have demonstrations scheduled throughout the day, including the Harvard High School band, Jason the Roping Cowboy, River City Chorus, Harvard Fire Protection District puppet shows, high school madrigals, and autograph session with our state champion wrestler. The Harvard Savings Bank will bring its shredder and the McHenry County Historical Society’s “James Bus” will be available for tours. Door raffles will be held all day, along with Bingo and a chance to win a 32-inch flat screen TV. Business Showcase times are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Harvard chamber members and exhibitors are invited to a networking opportunity on from 6 to 9 p.m. April 5 during set up. Food and beverages will be provided. *** We would Like to welcome our newest chamber members: Mutt Luv Dog Grooming, Thirty One with Consultant Robin Baker, Melson Contracting, 3GM Consulting LLC, McHenry County Recorder, Jon Pagles Design, Brennecka & Son’s Construction and Hoove’s to Heal.

Aldridge to acquire GFS of Huntley NORTHWEST HERALD

H. Rick Bamman –

Mariah Belin of Lake in the Hills works on multiplication with a tutor at the Roots Education Center in Lake in the Hills. The center offers after-school, one-on-one tutoring in reading, writing and test preparation.

Roots of learning LITH tutoring center looks at ‘whole picture’ By EMILY K. COLEMAN LAKE IN THE HILLS – All the worries kids have affect their learning. Jas Kahlon hopes to take away some of those worries through her new tutoring business, Roots Education Center in Lake in the Hills, which offers after-school, one-on-one tutoring in reading, writing, math, foreign languages and test preparation. Besides tutoring aimed at kids, the center plans to offer business workshops for teenagers and adults on creating a résumé, interview skills, public speaking and how to get a résumé out there. Kahlon used to run a Learning Center franchise, but she said she felt very limited on what kind of tutoring she could provide. She wants to address the “whole picture,” not just what is next on the syllabus, she said. “I’m talking to the students,” Kahlon said. “I’m asking them, ‘Where do you see yourself? What school do yourself going to? What do you see yourself doing?’ “I think I’m the person outside of school, outside of parents, and they can talk to me or talk to the tutors about other worries that they have. We just kind of push them in the right direction.” Originally from Hounslow, England – a suburb located near London Heathrow Airport – Kahlon’s family moved to the area after high school. Dropped into a completely different education system, Kahlon wished she had had a mentor to guide her. Kahlon attended Harper Community College before graduating from the Illinois Institute of Art with a degree in graphic design and visual communication. “I was so confused about how everything is here,” she said. “What do you do? There was no one to tell me you’re supposed into enroll in a university. ... Because in England, you go to a two-year college and then you go to university, so I figured that’s the way it is here.”

Luckily for me, I could be a stay-at-home mom, and I did it myself.”

and basic online filing, regardless of income. For taxpayers who earn under a certain amount each year, the free offers are sweeter. The IRS provides free in-person federal tax preparation as well as free brand name online tax preparation. That said, those options are best for people with uncomplicated finances. If you’re running a small business or own investment property, you will be better off hiring a professional. Here’s where to find free tax help:

FREE FACE-TO-FACE FILING If you want to sit down with a tax preparer, there are a couple of options: AARP offers free federal and state tax preparation for people with “moderate incomes,” says Bonnie Speedy, the national director of the organization’s Tax-Aide program. But it doesn’t have any strict restrictions. A person making more than $100,000

WASHINGTON – Consumers earned more and spent more in February, helped by a stronger job market that has offset some of the drag from higher taxes. The Commerce Department said Friday that consumer spending rose 0.7 percent in February from January. It was the biggest gain in five months and followed a revised 0.4 percent rise in January, which was double the initial estimate. Americans were able to spend more because their income rose 1.1 percent last month. That followed January’s 3.7 percent plunge and December’s 2.6 percent surge. The huge swings reflected a rush to pay bonuses and dividends in December before taxes increased. After-tax income increased 1.1 percent last month. The jump in income allowed consumers to put a little more away in February. The saving rate increased to 2.6 percent of after-tax income, up from 2.2 percent in January. Consumers spent more at the start of the year even after paying higher taxes. An increase in Social Security taxes has reduced take-home pay for nearly all Americans receiving a paycheck. And income taxes have risen on the highest earners. The tax increases both took effect on Jan. 1. The jump in spending and income suggests economic growth strengthened at the start of the year after nearly stalling at the end of last year. Consumer spending accounts for 70 percent of economic activity.

Indoor farming goes ‘mega’

Jobless rates down in 22 states in Feb.

perimenting with all kinds of crops, most have had success growing greens — herbs, various types of lettuce and “microgreens,” edible plants, such as beets and sunflowers, which are harvested when they are young and used like sprouts in salads and sandwiches. “Aquaponic” farms, which also raise tilapia and other fish, use water circulated to the plants that is fertilized with the fish excrement. Often, these farms also sell the fish to grocers or restaurants. “It’s different here than I’ve seen anywhere else, just the size, the sheer scale of it is very unique,” says Maximino Gonzalez, the master grower at FarmedHere LLC. The company, based in Bedford Park, is finishing the first of four phases, with plans to expand by the end of next year to 150,000 square feet of vertical growing space. Already, they say they are the largest vertical farm in the country, a claim experts who monitor the field believe to be true. The farm supplies local grocery with fresh basil, arugula and other greens. Right now, the farm has two large structures with five to six levels of massive growing beds that are lit with fluorescent lighting. One structure, where basil is grown, is “aquaponic.” Water underneath the plants – which rest in cutouts in styrofoam “floats” – circulates through a system from the plants to two large tanks

WASHINGTON – Unemployment rates fell in 22 U.S. states in February from January, a sign that hiring gains are benefiting many parts of the country. The Labor Department said Friday that unemployment rates rose in 12 states and were unchanged in 16. Nationally, the unemployment rate slid to a fouryear low of 7.7 percent in February, down from 7.9 percent in January. Since November, employers across the country have added an average of 200,000 jobs a month, nearly double the average from last spring. States hit hardest during the recession are showing improvement. In Nevada, unemployment dropped to 9.6 percent last month, down from 11.8 percent a year ago. That’s the biggest year-over-year decrease among states. One reason for the big drop is that people have stopped applying for jobs. Nevada’s work force — those working or looking for work — fell nearly 1 percent in the year through February. Only those looking for work are counted as unemployed. But hiring accelerated, too: Jobs in Nevada rose 2 percent over the past year. Unemployment in California fell to 9.6 percent last month, down from 10.8 percent in February 2012.

BEDFORD PARK – Farming in abandoned warehouses has become a hot trend in the Midwest – with varying degrees of success – as more entrepreneurs worldwide experiment with indoor growing systems in attempts to grow more food locally. Now one facility, FarmedHere LLC in suburban Chicago, is attempting to take indoor warehouse farming to the “mega farm” level, in a region of the country known more for its massive hog, corn and soybean farms than for crops of boutique greens. Here’s a run-down on the trend, this farm – and the challenges it and other indoor farms face. In Chicago, Milwaukee and other urban areas, entrepreneurs have taken up residence in vacant buildings that have high ceilings and plenty of space. Often, these are called “vertical” farms because, within the buildings, farmers build tall structures with several levels of growing beds, often lined with artificial lights. With so much vacant space available, the cost of the property is often cheap, to buy or rent, though the power needed to run these facilities often is not. Elsewhere, growers are incorporating greenhouses and natural light into their models — sometimes on rooftops, or in large fields. Though farmers are ex-

But if the person has an income over $100,000 because of an early retirement account withdrawal, they’ll gladly help, says Speedy. AARP will file taxes for younger people too. “We’ve helped college students file their taxes,” says Speedy. And you don’t have to be a paying member of the organization. AARP’s tax services are available at about 6,000 locations around the county, usually in libraries, hospitals or senior centers. You can find a location

of fish. The other structure, where arugula is grown, is “aeroponic,” with water misters underneath that spray the plants’ exposed roots. A third structure is under construction and will be completed soon, owners at FarmedHere say. Workers plant the seeds and grow seedlings on racks, then transfer into the growing systems. After about a month, the crops – certified as “organic” by the USDA – are harvested and packaged by about a dozen workers in a cooling room

A worker checks crops at the indoor vertical farm in Bedford Park. The farm, in an old warehouse, has crops that include basil, arugula and microgreens, sold at grocery stores in Chicago and its suburbs.

To use H&R Block for free, for example, you must make $57,000 or less and be under 52 years old. Go online, at , to see which free service you may qualify for. Some states also offer free filing too, but you’ll have to search online for your state’s tax department to determine if it’s available and any eligibility requirements. If you have adjusted gross income of more than $57,000, you can file your federal taxes for free, but

at the facility. Early the morning after the harvests, workers use two vans to deliver those greens — mainly basil and arugula right now — to grocers in Chicago and suburbs, including Whole Foods and Mariano’s Fresh Market locations. CEO Jolanta Hardej calls it “on-demand farming.” “Let’s say that the demand is suddenly for various types of arugula or various types of mixed greens, or mini greens,” she says. “We could change the whole system ... and pretty much within the

FREE HELP Got a tax question? The IRS gives out tax law assistance at no cost in its offices around the country. It’s available to anyone, regardless of income. You’ll need to pop into an IRS office. Try calling ahead to see if you need to make an appointment first, especially as the April 15 tax deadline nears. Go to YJlmhY to find an IRS office that of-

next 14 to 28 days, we have a full grown plant, whatever the market requires.” The biggest stumbling block for facilities like these remains power — the amount of electricity to run the lights that help the plants grow. Heating these massive spaces also can be costly. Experts in the field say this will also be a big challenge for FarmedHere, because of its size. A few other indoor farms in Wisconsin and Chicago have gone out of business, or are struggling to stay open.

Jack Benny, when talking about comedy, said, “It’s not so much knowing when to speak, as when to pause.” That is so true -- timing is everything. And it applies to many bridge deals, not just for declarer but also for the defenders. In today’s deal, who should come out ahead in four hearts after West leads his fourth-highest club? South opened with a textbook weak two-bid: a six-card suit containing two of the top three or three of the top ive honors, and 6 to 10 high-card points. North jumped to game, hoping his side would not immediately lose four black-suit tricks. Note West’s lead. Fourth-highest applies not only in no-trump but also in a trump contract when you have at least one honor in that suit. South has four potential losers: one spade, one heart and two clubs. If either major-suit inesse wins, he is safe. Or if he can draw trumps, he might be able to discard his low spade on dummy’s fourth diamond. East, though, should wonder where the defenders can get four tricks.

He should hope for two club winners. He can see a trump trick. So his side must take one spade. West will not have the ace and king, because then he would have led the spade ace, not the low club. If West has the spade ace, there will be no problems. But if he has the king, there isn’t a moment to lose. East must win with his club ace and shift to the spade eight (high denying an honor in the suit). Then the contract must fail. No other defense works. Leading back partner’s suit is usually right in notrump, but much less often in a trump contract.

TODAY - Don’t be satisfied with the status quo in the year ahead, under any circumstances. The cycle you’re entering wants to elevate you to a much higher level of living, financially, socially and career-wise. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A business situation that has caused much concern is about to take a turn for the better, due to your persistent, gentle nudging. You’ll soon see things moving in a profitable direction. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don’t hesitate to discuss a household interest in detail with your spouse and/or the family before taking action. Someone might have a good suggestion that you would never have thought of. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You’re not likely to have much time to take it easy, because a serious matter could take precedence. Getting on it immediately will give you comfort and satisfaction. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you get uptight, you’ll only stifle your creativity and productivity. Try not to take yourself or anything in which you’re involved too seriously. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There is a good chance you could spot something that could net you a nice profit. Although it’ll be obvious to you, not everyone will see it the same way. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Try to be tolerant of those who can’t grasp things as quickly as you do. Putting people down won’t enhance their productivity; it will only smother it further. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You have a knack for dealing with money or things of value. If you follow your instincts, you’ll have a better than average chance for profit or gain. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Concentrating on endeavors that are of personal importance doesn’t always represent selfish behavior. It’s apt to be one of those days when it’s necessary to put yourself first. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you need to get your head together, forgo asking for advice from others. Seek solitude until you sort things out. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- When you treat others in a warm, friendly fashion, the odds are others will automatically be drawn to you, and you’ll be repaid in the same fashion. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don’t sell yourself short in any competitive involvement, because luck will be tilted slightly in your favor and working against your opponent. Capitalize on it. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Believe in yourself and your colleagues will follow suit. A strong sense of confidence will be your best tool and your strongest ally.

Teeth in a Day Procedure with All-On-Four Dental Implants ‘‘Like having a second set of permanent teeth’’

Dr. M. Shakeel Diplomate with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists

Dr. Sunil Sinha Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon

By Dr. M. Shakeel LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO NOT FULLY ENJOY EACH AND EVERY REASON TO SMILE If you find yourself avoiding family photos, first impressions or even savoring your favorite foods, Dr. Shakeel’s unique dental implant techniques offer the solutions you’ve been searching for. The All-On-Four Dental Implants procedure - Teeth in a Day - offers simple, reliable and long-lasting results for patients who are missing teeth or experiencing the frustrations of loose, decayed and broken teeth. Though advanced technology and innovative techniques, dental implants are easier to place, less invasive and have a successful rate of over 95%.

WHY DR. SHAKEEL? With years of experience in the field, Dr. Shakeel is a highly respected expert in the placement and restoration of dental implants from a single missing tooth to the entire upper and lower arch. His background in dental implant surgery provides a strong foundation that ensures medically safe and aesthetically beautiful results. Furthermore, Dr. Shakeel received extensive hands-on training and assisted with numerous successful cases, under the guidance of the pioneer of the All-on-Four procedure, Dr. Paulo Malo of Portugal (2010). Few in the dental industry possess his mastery of the combined surgical and prosthetic demands of successful implant dentistry, especially executing the All-On-Four procedure. IDEAL PATIENTS The All-On-Four technique is for patients dissatisfied with their current dentures or for those who have

no practical alternatives for saving their remaining teeth. In most all cases, patients lacking the bone volume required to support traditional implants are able to enjoy the many benefits of a permanent solution to missing teeth through the All-OnFour procedure. THE TEETH IN A DAY PROCESS This amazing technique enables you to achieve a beautiful, new Smile in a Day by utilizing four implants placed in each arch to which the replacement teeth are securely attached. Gentle oral sedation assures that you receive maximum safety and comfort throughout the procedure. In addition, the entire process, including any necessary extractions, can be completed in one day with minimal recovery time.The result is a fully functional set of teeth that look and feel natural, improves your self-confidence and allows you to once again experience the foods and activities you enjoy most.

DISCOVER THE BENEFITS • Requires minimal recovery • Reduces overall cost when compared to single implants • Eliminates the need for bone grafting in most all cases • Allows for easy maintenance through proper oral hygiene • Restores the ability to eat all types of foods • Relieves the many frustrations of removable appliances • Ensures long-term results with the potential to last a lifetime • Renews a youthful appearance through bone level stabilization • Creates a whole new smile in just one day • Enhances self-confidence and overall quality of life For more information on Teeth in a Day or on All-On-Four Dental Implants, contact:

Dr. Shakeel Signature Dental Group 815-455-3300

All procedures are done under concious sedation to ensure patient comfort and safety. Dr Shakeel and Dr Sinha hold anesthesia permits in the state of Illinois.
