Wife guilty of charge related to shooting By SARAH SUTSCHEK

BELOW: Callie eats hay at the farm, which grows its own hay, but because of the drought last year had to ration its bales over the winter.

As hay growing season nears, county’s weather still too dry By EMILY K. COLEMAN Callie, a Belgian horse, enthusiastically inhaled alternative feed out of a bright, red food dish. She usually eats an all-hay diet, provided by the farm where she lives, but last year’s drought meant that the fields surrounding the barn and arena yielded only 15 bales in its second cutting instead of 200, said her owner, Tracey Cummings. A late third cutting that also had below-normal yields forced the Circle K Farm to start rationing its hay in the fall, Cummings said. Across the country, horse owners had to find solutions to scarce and increasingly expensive hay. Some horses were abandoned or sold. Some owners worked connections to find new suppliers, and others turned to alternative feeds to fill the gap.

“Everyone has a story,” said Sandy Remmers, who boards her horse at a private farm in McHenry. Remmers called in a family favor to help a fellow boarder locate four round bales of hay, which were delivered two weeks ago, she said. “You have to keep networking and digging, even go out of state,” Remmers said. “Find it wherever. Pull some strings.” Even for those who did get enough hay, it was expensive. Hay typically costs about $4 a bale in the area, but this year, it’s running more like $10 to $12 a bale. The Hooved Animal Rescue and Protection Society, based in Barrington Hills, spent $10 a bale “for what I consider mediocre hay,” founder and president Donna Ewing said. But the group didn’t want to get stuck without anything.

WOODSTOCK – A woman whose husband shot and killed a man who responded to an online ad for sex with her has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct. Kimberly A. Smith, 30, of Woodstock entered a blind plea Friday to the Class 4 felony, meaning there is no agreement with prosecutors about her sentence. Because she has a prior felony conviction for fleeing and eluding from a 2007 case, she faces between one and six years in prison. She also is eligible for probation.

Not too late to care about Tuesday’s election If the number of election-related letters to the editor we received is an indicator of voter interest, we should have a record turnout Tuesday. Of course, that’s not going to happen. I assume the number of people who show up and vote Tuesday will be at its normal, miserable level. I mean, really, why would anybody choose to participate in the most important set of elections we have? Letter-writers were hard at work this election season, however.

Judge making morning-after pill available to all The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – The morning-after pill might become as easy to buy as aspirin. In a scathing rebuke accusing the Obama administration of letting election-year politics trump science, a federal judge ruled Friday that women of any age should be able to buy emergency contraception without a doctor’s prescription. Today, women can do that only if they prove at the pharmacy that they’re 17 or older; everyone else must see a doctor first. U.S. District Judge Edward Korman of New York blasted the government’s decision on age limits as “arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable,” and ordered an end

to the restrictions within 30 days. The Justice Department was evaluating whether to appeal, and spokeswoman Allison Price said there would be a prompt decision. President Barack Obama had supported the 2011 decision setting age limits, and White House spokesman Jay Carney said Friday the president hasn’t changed his position. “He believes it was the right common-sense approach to this issue,” Carney said. If the court order stands, Plan B One-Step and its generic versions could move from behind pharmacy counters out to drugstore shelves – ending a decade-plus struggle by women’s groups for easier

access to these pills, which can prevent pregnancy if taken soon enough after unprotected sex. Saying the sales restrictions can make it hard for women of any age to buy the pills, Korman described the administration’s decision, in the year before the 2012 presidential and congressional elections, as “politically motivated, scientifically unjustified and contrary to agency precedent.” Women’s health specialists hailed the ruling. “It has been clear for a long time that the medical and scientific community think this should be fully over the counter and is safe for women of all ages to use,” said Dr. Susan Wood, who resigned as FDA’s women’s health chief

A 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo that originally retailed for $180,000 is going up for auction April 23 at a Washoe County sheriff’s sale of property seized from a convicted drug trafficker. Detectives also seized more than $170,000 in cash, a Yamaha motorcycle and a 2006 Mercedes Benz from James Monts in February 2011. He was convicted last year on charges of selling marijuana in Reno, Las Vegas and San Francisco. The Lamborghini has only 12,000 miles on it. The district attorney’s office said in a news release it has a 5.0-liter engine with 493 base horsepower and goes from zero to 60 mph in just over four seconds.

in 2005 to protest Bush administration foot-dragging over Plan B. Half the nation’s pregnancies every year are unintended. Doctors’ groups say more access to morning-after pills – by putting them near the condoms and spermicides so people can learn about them and buy them quickly – could cut those numbers. They see little risk in overuse, as the pills cost $40 to $50 apiece. “The fact that it’s over the counter does not make people have sex,” said Dr. Angela Diaz, director of New York’s Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center. “Sixty percent of young people are sexually active by 12th grade, and the more tools we have to help them be responsible, the better.” @nwherald

8STATE BRIEFS Murder charges filed in 2nd prison inmate death SPRINGFIELD – A 23-year-old Menard Correctional Center inmate has been charged with murdering his cellmate. Randolph County State’s Attorney Jeremy Walker says Donald Hazzard allegedly beat 64-year-old Yusuf Abuzir in their cell Jan. 25. Abuzir died in the prison infirmary Feb. 25. Walker says Hazzard will be held in the Randolph County Jail on a $750,000 bond after he’s released from Menard. Hazzard’s 4½-year sentence for illegal weapons possession in McLean County is scheduled to end Sunday. Abuzir’s death is one of three cases of inmates dying under suspicious circumstances at Menard since Jan. 31. Walker filed murder charges against James Amison in the Jan. 31 beating of Jason Hall. Thirty-five-year-old William Crowder was found dead in his cell March 26.

ComEd sued for delays installing ‘smart’ meters CHICAGO – Chicago attorneys have filed a class-action lawsuit against a northern Illinois utility for delaying its installation of so called “smart” meters. Commonwealth Edison put off starting the installation until 2015. It’s said a lower-than-expected rate increase left it short on cash to install nearly 4 million of the high-tech, energy-saving meters. The lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court this week accuses ComEd of violating an Illinois Commerce Commission order by not starting in 2012. Plaintiffs’ attorney Paul Neilan says the suit seeks at least $182 million from ComEd. He alleges that’s what consumers would have saved had installation started last year as originally planned.

S. Illinois seeing first of fracking rush By JIM SUHR The Associated Press ST. LOUIS – Blessed with natural resources but never enough jobs, southern Illinois counties have begun sampling the fruits of a land rush linked to a debated drilling practice that speculators believe can tap elusive oil and natural gas thousands of

feet underground. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in fees have flowed into county coffers from a stream of “land men,” often out-of-staters who converged in recent years to scour title records for prime parcels for exploration. County clerks funneled much of that windfall into digitizing bulky, age-yellowed record books

that took a toll from all the frenzied searches. A coffee shop owner credits the visitors with saving her business in Wayne County’s tiny Fairfield. The county’s finance board leader says he’s seen more locals sporting new vehicles and spending more on items at auctions, thanks to land deals tied to the drilling

push. Locals believe the best is yet to come. But, as lawmakers in Springfield argue about potentially ground-breaking regulations that would facilitate the so-called practice of “fracking,” it’s difficult to determine how much of the region stands to benefit. Industry officials say at least 17 counties – perhaps a sixth

of the state – could see some activity, and that landowners already have leased perhaps half a million acres. “Once they hit a well, everybody and their dog will be in here drilling,” said Steve Ehrhart, head of the finance committee in Wayne County, which has been one of the epicenters of the land speculation.

One adult dead, children Sentencing awaits injured in school bus crash woman who left her baby to freeze

By LAKE COUNTY JOURNAL WADSWORTH – Of the 23 students sent to Advocate Condell Medical Center after a school bus crash today in Lake County, 15 of them have been released, a hospital spokeswoman said. “Thankfully they were in good condition,” said Sarah Toomey, Condell spokeswoman, at 12:20 p.m. Students had bumps, bruises, cuts, abrasians and scrapes, she said. “We dont expect to admit anyone, no surgery, nothing like that.” A school social worker is there, she said. The students were sent to the hospital after a Beach Park School District 3 bus and two vehicles were involved in a crash near Wadsworth this morning, said Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran. Authorities have identified the person who died in the crash as a 62-year-old Beach Park man. Lake County Chief Deputy Coroner Orlando Portillo says Philip Smith was pronounced dead around 9:15 a.m. As of 11:30 a.m., authorities remained on the scene investigating the crash where a bus was turned over on its side at Route 173 and Kilbourne Road in Newport Township.

cident and letting them know they could come to the school to see if their children were OK. Marcia Jackson Cunninghamn of Zion said she came to see if her grandson, age 9, was OK. He was not on the bus in the accident, but she worried that he might be upset. He seemed fine, she said, but she was worried he would be upset later on. She said the small school is like a familiy. At 11 a.m., students were outside playing during recess. At least eight ambulances, including one from Grayslake and another from North Chicago, were called to the scene of the accident.

ROCKFORD – A sentencing hearing began Friday for a northern Illinois woman who admitted leaving a newborn daughter to freeze to death along a rural roadway in 2004. Katie Stockton, 32, faces up to 60 years in prison for the death of the infant, who became known as Baby Crystal around the Rock River Valley after her frozen remains were found. Winnebago County Judge John Truitt said he would allow testimony about skeletal remains of two other infants found years later in the trunk of Stockton’s car, the Rockford Register Star reported. That testimony wouldn’t have been allowed at trial, but Stockton pleaded guilty in February to first-degree murder in the death of Baby Crystal. Stockton hid her pregnancy and gave birth to the baby in secret on Dec. 17, 2004. Afterward, she stuffed the baby and soiled clothing into an orange shopping bag and placed it along a deadend road near her parents’

Rockton home. She was questioned in the baby’s death at the time, but denied she was the mother and refused to provide a DNA sample. Detectives investigating the death years later collected evidence from a cigarette butt they saw Stockton discard, and authorities said saliva on the cigarette butt matched blood found on the clothing with Baby Crystal. Stockton was arrested in 2009 after further tests showed she was the baby’s mother with a 99.96 percent certainty. After her arrest, investigators discovered her car had been sitting in an impound lot for a year and searched it for more clues. That’s when they found the skeletal remains of two other infants wrapped in cloth and stuffed in separate plastic bags and buried beneath a spare tire, chain saw and tire iron. Forensic pathologists could not determine how the infant girls found in the trunk died or whether they were born alive. No charges have been filed in connection with those remains.

Ebert was willing to adapt to new media The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Roger Ebert started out as an old-school newspaper man, the kind that has all but vanished: a fierce competitor who spent the day trying to scoop the competition and the night bellied up to the bar swapping stories. Then newspapers fell on hard times, either laying off huge chunks of their staffs or disappearing altogether. But Ebert didn’t merely survive. He flourished, largely by embracing television and later the Internet and social networks. As the American news media and even the landscape of his beloved Chicago changed, Ebert evolved, too, gliding seamlessly from one medium to the next and helping to blaze a path forward for the beleaguered industry he loved. Ebert, who died Thursday at age 70, rose to fame at the Chicago Sun-Times, which struggled to survive after two of the city’s four dailies closed. The nation’s most influential movie critic was always willing to experiment and adapt. Every step into new technology widened his audience. “Roger was one of the great conversationalists, whether it was in bars or on the street corner, and when he could not speak, he found a way to speak,” said Rick Kogan, a longtime Chicago Tribune writer who knew Ebert for decades. “In many ways, he was generations ahead of his time.” Ebert, who quit drinking in the late 1970s, arrived in Chicago when gritty steel mills and stockyards dominated an industrial city. Slowly, they were replaced by gleaming skyscrapers. Ebert kept his newspaper job but grew into a television star, along with his crosstown rival, Gene Siskel of the Tribune. When cancer took Ebert’s voice, he did something that many in his generation would not: He embraced the digital age and kept talking. He talked to his 800,000-plus Twitter followers. He talked to the 100,000 friends on his Facebook page, and he talked on

Film critic Roger Ebert attends a Blackberry Loves Mavericks cocktail reception during the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto. Ebert died Thursday his own blog. All the while, he kept talking in the pages of the Sun-Times, his employer for more than 40 years. In the process, he demonstrated to other journalists who grew up in a print world that tweets had value. “When I first went to Twitter, I thought it was stupid,” said Michele Norris, a host and special correspondent for National Public Radio and a former Tribune reporter. “But he used it to rant and to educate and to push and cajole and make people laugh and think.” Chicago’s surviving newspapers have seen their staffs slashed, but Ebert never lost his love for newsprint. It was there on his desk: the student newspaper he continued to read for decades after college. He once wrote a scathing open letter to former Sun-Times sports columnist Jay Mariotti, who on his way out the door said newspapers were “destined to die.” “Newspapers are not dead, Jay, because there are still readers who want the whole story, not a sound bite,” he wrote. In the same letter, Ebert explained his decision to stay at the paper during the time it was owned by media mogul Rupert Murdoch. “I was asked, ‘How can you work for a Murdoch paper?’ My reply was: It’s not his paper. It’s my paper. He only owns it.”

Miss. cop, suspect shot, killed inside police HQ Details of incident being investigated The ASSOCIATED PRESS JACKSON, Miss. – Stunned police officials in Jackson, Miss., are trying to determine how a suspect was able to shoot and kill a homicide detective inside an interrogation room at police headquarters – and how the suspect himself ended up dead. Authorities said Det. Eric Smith, a tall, fit investigator and decorated homicide detective who had been with the department since 1995, was gunned down inside an interview room late Thursday afternoon as he was questioning the 23-year-old murder suspect, Jeremy Powell. Officers heard several gunshots, and when they went to the room, found both Smith – a married father – and Powell dead of multiple gunshot wounds, police said. Police in Jackson were clearly shaken by the killing of one of their own inside a high-security building where officers and residents alike expect to be safe. But they did not release any details about what they believed happened. They said the case has been turned over to the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, which is standard procedure. “The entire city of Jackson and the Jackson Police Department family are all hurting,” said Jackson city spokesman Chris Mims. “We are asking for the public’s patience while we find out why this tragic incident happened and how it happened.”

The suspect was being questioned on the third floor of the police headquarters building when the shooting happened, Police Chief Rebecca Coleman said. Police said in a news release that Powell was in the process of being arrested in the killing Monday of 20-yearold Christopher Alexander. News outlets reported that Alexander’s body was found Monday near a Jackson street and he had been stabbed in the neck. The police headquarters was on lockdown Thursday night, Mims said. Jackson City Councilman Chokwe Lumumba was in police headquarters with the mayor later and said Smith was shot by the suspect. He did not know how the suspect ended up dead. “I understand there may have been more than one police officer in the room,” Lumumba said. The headquarters was blocked off and surrounded by crime tape. Law enforcement and Jackson city officials rushed to the scene. At least 30 Jackson Police and Hinds County Sheriff’s office vehicles were haphazardly parked across multiple, major downtown Jackson streets Thursday evening. Officers wiped their eyes, and Assistant Chief Lee Vance could be seen comforting Coleman at one point, putting his arm around her shoulder outside the building. Mims described the 40-yearold Smith, who was assigned to the Robbery-Homicide Division, as “a decorated detective and well-respected law-enforcement person throughout the state of Mississippi.”

Social Security cuts on offer The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Seeking an elusive middle ground, President Barack Obama is proposing a 2014 budget that embraces tax increases abhorred by Republicans as well as reductions, loathed by liberals, in the growth of Social Security and other benefit programs. The plan, if ever enacted, could touch almost all Americans. The rich would see tax increases, the poor and the elderly would get smaller annual increases in their benefits, and middle income taxpayers would slip into higher tax brackets despite Obama’s repeated vows not to add to the tax burden of the middle class. His proposed changes, once phased in, would mean a cut in Social Security benefits of nearly $1,000 a year for an average 85-year-old, smaller cuts for younger retirees. Obama proposed much the same without success to House Speaker John Boehner in December. The response Friday was dismissive from Republicans and hostile from liberals, labor and advocates for the elderly. But the proposal aims to tackle worrisome deficits that are adding to the national debt and placing a long-term burden on the nation, prompting praise from independent deficit hawks. Obama’s budget also proposes new spending for public works projects, preschool education and for job and benefit assistance for veterans. “It’s not the president’s ideal approach to our budget challenges, but it is a serious compromise proposition that demonstrates that he wants to get things done,” said

President Barack Obama speaks Wednesday at the Police Academy in Denver. White House press secretary Jay Carney. The budget, which Obama will release Wednesday to cover the budget year beginning Oct. 1, proposes spending cuts and revenue increases that would result in $1.8 trillion in deficit reductions over 10 years. That figure would replace $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts that are poised to take effect over the next 10 years if Congress and the president don’t come up with an alternative, thus delivering a net increase in deficit reduction of $600 billion. Counting reductions and higher taxes that Congress and Obama have approved since 2011, the 2014 budget would contribute to $4.3 trillion in total deficit reduction by 2023. The budget wouldn’t affect the $85 billion in cuts that

kicked in last month for this budget year. A key feature of Obama’s plan is a revised inflation adjustment called “chained CPI.” This new formula would effectively curb annual increases in a broad swath of government programs but would have its biggest impact on Social Security. By encompassing Obama’s offer to Boehner, R-Ohio, the plan would also include reductions in Medicare spending, much of it by targeting payments to health care providers and drug companies. The Medicare proposal also would require wealthier recipients to pay higher premiums or co-pays. Obama’s budget proposal also calls for additional tax revenue, primarily by placing a 28 percent cap on deductions and other tax exclusions. That plan would

affect wealthy taxpayers as would a new administration proposal to place limits on tax-preferred retirement accounts for millionaires and billionaires. Obama made the December offer to Boehner in when he and the speaker were negotiating ways of avoiding a steep, so-called fiscal cliff of combined across-the-board spending cuts and sweeping tax increases caused by the expiration of Bush-era tax rates. Boehner rejected that plan and ultimately Congress approved tax increases that were half of what Obama had sought. “If you look at where the president’s final offer and Boehner were ... they were extremely close to each other,” said Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

States fight youth immigration change By CRISTINA SILVA The Associated Press PHOENIX – President Barack Obama’s decision last year to allow young people living in the U.S. illegally to stay and work marked the biggest shift in immigration policy in decades, hailed as a landmark step toward the American dream for a generation of immigrants. But months later, many immigrants are having vastly different reactions to the change depending on where they live, and they aren’t flocking to the program at the levels the government originally expected. A handful of Republican-led states are blocking basic benefits for those in the program, denying beneficiaries identification cards, driver’s licenses, health care, in-state tuition, student financial aid, college admission or other privileges typically afforded to legal residents. Others have set out welcome signs for the immigrants, including 12 that grant resident tuition for immigrants who graduated from local high schools.

“The Obama amnesty plan doesn’t make them legally here.” Jan Brewer Governor of Arizona

The number of immigrants who signed up for the program has been smaller than envisioned. In the first eight months of the program, about 450,000 applications have been accepted. The government originally estimated that 1 million would enroll in the first year. Experts say the numbers have been surprisingly low in states with large immigrant populations like Florida, New Jersey and Arizona, where about 16,000 people have taken advantage of the program. Enrolling in a college or a university – a cornerstone of the new policy – hasn’t been easy either. With many states refusing to grant in-state tuition, immigrants who largely come from working-class families have to shell out upward of $40,000 a year to go to school – with no financial aid.

“The little store that pays you more!”


“It’s really hard that now you have all these doors that you feel are going to be open to you and the doors are still closed,” said Reyna Avila, a Phoenix college student who received a work permit and Social Security card under the policy, but still cannot drive to work or school without risking criminal charges. In Michigan, high school senior Javier Contreras and his family considered moving to Illinois until his state came up with a solution allowing him to get a driver’s license. But because of his immigration status, he will have to pay the $20,000 for out-of-state tuition if he wants to attend his dream school, the University of Michigan. Under the so-called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, more than 1 million immigrants are eligible for work permits good for two years with no limits on how many times they can be renewed. Qualified applicants must be 30 or younger, prove they arrived in the U.S. before they turned 16, have been living in the country at least five years and are in school or graduated or served

in the military. Immigrant advocates embraced the program when it was announced in June as a long-awaited, albeit temporary fix for young immigrants, many of whom were brought here as young children and grew up in America. Congress has failed for years to create a similar law in the form of the DREAM Act, so Obama bypassed the legislative process and implemented the change under the Department of Homeland Security. Republican critics note the Obama policy was passed only after Congress failed multiple times to pass the DREAM Act and could soon be found unconstitutional in court because it extends legal rights to people who are not legally in the country. “The Obama amnesty plan doesn’t make them legally here,” Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said shortly after the program was unveiled. The creation of the program set off a flurry of activity in statehouses, governor’s offices and in the courts, giving young immigrants different impressions of the policy from state to state.

Pyongyang rumblings have little effect on S. Koreans The ASSOCIATED PRESS SEOUL, South Korea – Outsiders might hear the opening notes of a war in the deluge of threats and provocations from North Korea, but to South Koreans it is a familiar drumbeat. Separated from the North by a heavily fortified border for decades, they have for the most part lived with tough talk from Pyongyang all their lives. In annual defense drills, war alarms ring in their ears. Foreigners unused to

North Korean rumblings have canceled trips to the Korean Peninsula. But to get South Koreans’ attention, Pyongyang must compete with the economy, celebrity scandals, baseball games and cherry blossoms. At a restaurant in downtown Seoul that sells kimchi stew and fried cutlets, owner Lee Chul-je said he wasn’t worried about the threats, as news about them poured from a TV in the corner. “North Korea does this all the time,” the 65-year-old said

as he dropped slices of raw meat into a tenderizer. “I’m sure things will become OK again.” Office worker Park Geunsan is more interested in next week’s Seoul concert by “Gangnam Style” singer PSY than in the North’s dark pronouncements. “My life isn’t affected by them,” he said. “I’m really excited about going to the concert. North Korea doesn’t distract me from looking forward to it.” North Korea has respond-


Matisse in museum was once Nazi loot OSLO, Norway – The family of a prominent Parisian art dealer is demanding that a Norwegian museum return an Henri Matisse painting seized by Nazis under the direction of Hermann Goering, in the latest dispute over art stolen from Jews during World War II. The painting at the center of the dispute, Matisse’s 1937 “Blue Dress in a Yellow Armchair,” depicts a woman sitting in a living room. It has been among the highlights of the Henie Onstad Art Center near Oslo since the museum was established in 1968 through a donation by wealthy art collector Niels Onstad and his wife, Olympic figure-skating champion Sonja Henie.

Syrian president warns of fallout if regime falls BEIRUT – President Bashar Assad warned the fall of his regime or the breakup of Syria will unleash a “domino effect” that will fuel Middle East instability for years to come, in his sharpest warning yet about the potential fallout of his country’s civil war on neighboring states. In Moscow, President Vladimir Putin said the Syrian conflict has become “a massacre” that must be stopped through peace talks, and repeated the Kremlin’s firm rejection of calls for Assad’s ouster. Speaking in an interview Friday, Assad accused his neighbors of stoking the revolt against his rule and warned they would eventually pay a heavy price.

– Wire reports

There is no sign of panic. At Home Plus, a major supermarket chain, no one was buying up bottled water or instant noodles. “There has been no spike in sales,” company official Koo Doyoun said. Kang Dong-wan, a cross-border relations expert at Dong-A University in Busan, said South Koreans see Pyongyang as the boy who cried wolf. After almost endless militant threats, they now refuse to believe war is imminent, he said.

Signs of trouble seen as Iran nuke talks begin ALMATY, Kazakhstan – Talks seeking to find common ground between Iran and a group of six nations over concerns that Tehran’s nuclear program might be used to make weapons appeared to run into trouble shortly after they began Friday. A Western diplomat privy to the talks said Iran’s response to the offer from the group fell short of what the six wanted and instead amounted to a “reworking” of proposals it made last year at negotiations that broke up in disagreement. He said the two sides remained a “long way apart on substance” as the talks adjourned Friday.

FAA delays closing of airport control towers WASHINGTON – The closings of control towers at 149 small airports, due to begin this weekend because of government-wide spending cuts, are being delayed until mid-June, federal regulators announced Friday. The Federal Aviation Administration said it needs more time to deal with legal challenges to the closures. Also, about 50 airport authorities and other “stakeholders” have indicated they want to fund the operations of the towers themselves rather than see them shut down, and more time will be needed to work out those plans, the agency said in a statement. The first 24 tower closures were scheduled to begin Sunday, with the rest coming over the next few weeks.

Data leak raises questions By LORI HINNANT The Associated Press PARIS – It’s a data leak involving tens of thousands of offshore bank accounts, naming dozens of prominent figures around the world. And new details are being released by the day – raising the prospect that accounts based on promises of secrecy and tax shelter could someday offer neither. Among those named include a top campaign official in France, the ex-wife of pardoned oil trader Marc Rich, Azerbaijan’s ruling family, the daughter of Imelda Marcos and the late Baron Elie de Rothschild. The widespread use of offshore accounts among the wealthy is widely known – even Mitt Romney acknowledged stashing some of his millions in investments in the Cayman Islands. But this week’s leak, orchestrated by a Washing-

ton-based group called the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, appeared to be the broadest in what has been a steady stream of information emerging about hidden money in recent years amid a wave of anger targeting the super-rich in an age of austerity. The leak allegedly involved records from 10 tax havens, where the world’s wealthy have long stashed funds. It uncovered a shadow network of empty holding companies and names essentially rented out to fill out boards of non-existent corporations, including a British couple listed as active in more than 2,000 entities, according to The Guardian newspaper, which participated in the global undertaking. The project started with the receipt of a hard drive by an Australian journalist, Gerard Ryle, who took the data with him when he joined the consortium, according to the

project’s website. The group, a project of the Washington-based Center for Public Integrity, has said the hard drive arrived in the mail. “We know the data is valid. We know who originally produced the data and we’ve done massive crosschecks to make sure what we’re getting is accurate and isn’t corrupted,” said Michael Hudson, a senior editor on the project. Rudolf Elmer, who once ran the Caribbean operations of the Swiss bank Julius Baer and turned whistleblower after he was dismissed in 2002, told The Associated Press that he considers the data to be authentic. “This comprehensive information is like a torch that will probably set off a wildfire and bring to light a lot more about secretive tax havens,” he said. The secret bank accounts of the rich and powerful have recently come under a crush of whistle-blowing scrutiny.

Op-ed stirs debate FIBROMYALGIA over rock-throwing The ASSOCIATED PRESS JERUSALEM – A newspaper op-ed piece by an Israeli writer has revived an emotional debate surrounding Israel’s 45-year rule over the West Bank and east Jerusalem: Do Palestinians who throw rocks at Israelis exercise a “birthright” of resisting military occupation, as the author argued? Or is stone-throwing an indefensible act of violence? The heated argument – along with a police complaint West Bank settlers filed against the author – was another sign of the deepening gulf between the two peoples after decades of conflict. The debate comes at a time when Israelis are watching for any signs of a third Palestinian “intifada,” or uprising, against the occupation that began in 1967, when Israel captured the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem. Palestinians want the three territories for a state. However, two decades of intermittent Israeli-Palestinian negotiations have come up empty and Israel – while withdrawing from Gaza in 2005 – has moved more than half a million of its civilians to the rest of the occupied lands during the four-decade occupation in what much of the world says is a violation of international law. In the past 25 years, Palestinians have launched two uprisings. The first erupted in 1987 and was characterized by large demonstrations, often

accompanied by stone-throwing. Israeli troops responded with tear gas, live fire and mass arrests. The revolt led to negotiations that produced interim peace deals. The second intifada broke out in 2000, after failed talks on a final deal, and violence escalated on both sides. Palestinians used guns and bombs, including suicide attacks. Israel retook parts of the West Bank earlier handed to partial Palestinian control and began targeting militant leaders in missile attacks from helicopters. In an op-ed piece in the Haaretz daily Wednesday, Israeli journalist Amira Hass wrote that Israel has engaged in systematic violence against the Palestinians as part of its well-oiled machinery of occupation. “Throwing stones is the birthright and duty of anyone subject to foreign rule,” wrote Hass, who covers the Palestinians and lives in the West Bank. Limitations of that right could include “the distinction between civilians and those who carry arms,” she wrote. Her words elicited a flood of angry reactions in Israel on Thursday, including from the mother of a 3-year-old Israeli girl who was critically injured last month in a West Bank road accident triggered by stone-throwing. Another writer brought up the case of a 1-year-old boy who, along with his father, was killed under similar circumstances in 2011.

Candidates in Pakistan vote face odd questions By SEBASTIAN ABBOT The Associated Press ISLAMABAD – Aslam Khan Khattak passed his first – and perhaps most curious – test this week in his quest to become a member of Pakistan’s parliament: He correctly named the first person to walk on the moon. The question was posed to Khattak by Pakistani judges, who have provoked both laughter and criticism in recent days in their vetting of potential candidates in the country’s upcoming national elections with queries that have veered between the controversial and the bizarre. One candidate was prodded to spell the word graduation. Another was quizzed on the lyrics of the national anthem. A third was asked how she would manage to serve as a lawmaker with two young children at home. Many candidates were forced to recite Islamic prayers to prove they were devout Muslims, and one – a prominent journalist – was disqualified because one of his newspaper columns was deemed to have ridiculed Pakistan’s ideology. “The manner in which the

exercise of screening election candidates is being conducted cannot even be termed as childish,” Pakistan’s Dawn newspaper said in an editorial. “It is far worse.” The source of the problem, according to critics, is a pair of articles in Pakistan’s constitution – 62 and 63 – introduced in the 1980s by former military dictator Gen. Zia ul-Haq that govern who is eligible to serve in parliament. The former dictator sought to intensify the religious nature of the majority Muslim country, and article 62 stipulates a lawmaker “has adequate knowledge of Islamic teachings and practices obligatory duties prescribed by Islam.” Although the articles have been in the constitution for years, they haven’t played a significant role in past elections. But the Supreme Court has pressed judges vetting thousands of candidates to enforce the law more strictly in the run-up to the May 11 parliamentary election in an attempt to weed out corrupt politicians and those who may have broken basic laws, such as not paying their taxes, a common abuse in Pakistan.

Courtroom cameras still missing The Northwest Herald Editorial Board offers this week’s thumbs up and thumbs down: Thumbs down: To no cameras being allowed in McHenry County courtrooms. The second trial of Mario Casciaro ended this week with a guilty verdict of first-degree murder in the Brian Carrick case. This trial had huge community interest. Unfortunately, it was held, essentially, behind closed doors. Yes, the courtroom is open to the public, but not allowing cameras in the courtroom severely limits the public’s access to our judicial system. While other counties around the state participate – without incident – in the pilot program allowing cameras in the courtroom, McHenry County continues to lag behind. Thumbs up: To the McHenry County Board for spending less than anticipated in 2012. Expenses came in almost $7 million under budget, according to preliminary, unaudited figures. The county spent $1.46 million less than projected on personnel, about $2.4 million less on contractual services and almost $2 million less on capital outlay. During a time of economic and financial uncertainty, it’s gratifying to see a local government taking its role as steward of taxpayer dollars seriously. Thumbs up: To Huntley High School for bringing in Holocaust survivor Lisl Bogart this week to speak to students about her experiences in the former Czechoslovakia in the 1940s. While students can and should read about the most significant events of the past century, there is no substitute for hearing history from eyewitnesses while we’re still fortunate enough to have the opportunity to do so. Just like the remaining WWII vets whom we treasure, the number of those who can provide such valuable firsthand testimony is dwindling. Thumbs down: To the Algonquin Village Board for caving to the allure of gambling revenue. The board voted, 5-2, this week to allow video gambling machines at local restaurants and taverns. Video gambling does more harm to communities than good. It’s the most addictive form of gaming, and it’s too close to potential addicts’ homes. Cheers to Trustee Brian Dianis and Village President John Schmitt for being the lone holdouts. Thumbs up: To Kolze’s Corner Gardens of Woodstock for starting the Plant a Row for the Hungry project. The group is encouraging area gardeners to plant an extra row of vegetables in their garden for distribution to area food pantries, providing them more healthy and fresh options. There are plenty in need, and this is a way to help. The Crystal Lake pantry, for example, assists about 4,300 people each month.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Great ambassador To the Editor: I was a participant in the St. Baldrick’s Day shave-your-head fundraiser for cancer. I was very proud to be a part in a community that truly helps each other. I got to see and experience firsthand how Mayor Sue Low energized our community and supporters. It truly takes many skills, leadership, trustworthy, communication and so much more to work with so many organizations. The teamwork involved with our schools, firefighters, police and businesses, and the hundreds who donated to such a great cause, could only be accomplished with the best ambassador the city has ever had! Thank you, Mayor Sue Low, for all that you do for the community.

Danger at state prisons

New blood

Wonder Lake

It appears that the state’s budget cuts are making Illinois prisons more dangerous for inmates and employees. Just last week, an inmate was found dead in his cell at the Menard Correctional Center in Chester under suspicious circumstances. He became the third inmate to die at the prison under such circumstances since Jan. 31. The more cynical among us might ask why the public should care about the deaths of convicted criminals in prison. Some think they don’t deserve any better. But we must keep in mind that cases of mistaken convictions have been shown to be all too common in recent years. It’s tragic enough for someone to have to spend time in prison for something they didn’t do, but if they are murdered while doing so, it’s even worse. And even inmates who truly are guilty of crimes still are human beings. They are the responsibility of the state, which has an obligation to protect them while in custody. Anything less invites anarchy and injustice that could spill out beyond the prison walls. Gov. Pat Quinn has pushed cuts to the Department of Corrections that have called for closing five correctional facilities and housing their inmates in other facilities that already are overcrowded. Officials of the union representing prison employees have warned that these actions would make Illinois’ prisons more dangerous, and it appears they may be right. And if you don’t think prison overcrowding affects you or your family, consider this. Last month, the Department of Corrections began releasing “well-behaved” inmates eligible for credit on their sentences under a program that Quinn signed into law last year. Think how much outrage there will be if one of these inmates, who is released only because officials are trying to reduce prison overcrowding, commits a violent offense after rejoining society.

To the Editor: Let’s get some new blood and brains onto the McHenry County College Board of Trustees. Tom Wilbeck himself is a graduate of a community college. Three of his children graduated from MCC as well. Wilbeck’s background is financial management, and he is very caring about expenditures concerning taxpayers. I am pleased that he is opposed to a health club for MCC. That’s money wasted. MCC needs to be on a financial leash in this economy. Please vote for Tom Wilbeck on April 9. Aneida McDermott Crystal Lake

Struggling township To the Editor: I am writing to support Grafton Township supervisor candidate Pam Fender. The township election in Grafton is critical as we work to move forward. Pam is a longtime local leader and volunteer with the exact combination of compassion and experience that our township desperately needs. Pam is experienced in local government, serving as a Huntley village trustee since 2005. Pam held this elected position during critical years – population growth, Route 47 widening, a new Centegra hospital and full Interstate 90 interchange. Pam has been honored for her

service by both the chamber of commerce and the Huntley Park District. Pam founded the Huntley Fall Fest, which has grown in seven years to be a large, three-day festival. Pam also was instrumental in helping the Grafton Food Pantry find a new location. For the good of our struggling township, please consider supporting Pam Fender. Dawn Burt Huntley

Straighten out mess To the Editor: There are two candidates running for Grafton Township supervisor in the April 9 election. Jim Kearns is best suited for the job. His business and financial knowledge far outweigh his opponent’s. Straightening out the mess of the previous administration will require serious effort and financial skills. In my opinion, the other candidate doesn’t possess these skills to get the job done. Organizing painting parties and picnics doesn’t make her suited for the job. She has so many visions of starting new programs but doesn’t realize the township is in a financial mess. Let alone, many of these programs she mentions are already in place. I think she will be overwhelmed in this position. Please vote in supervisor candidate Jim Kearns and the other Restore independent candidates on April 9. Rick Lueth Huntley

Strong work ethic To the Editor: Cameron Hubbard is a lifelong family friend of mine and resident of Crystal Lake. His grandparents grew up alongside my own, and their strong work ethic and family values shine brightly today through Cameron’s actions and character. Cameron Hubbard is the type of person who will give you the shirt off his back. He is always willing to step forward as a leader and lend a hand to his friends and family. Now he would like to do the same for the community that raised him. I am confident that Cameron always will strive to listen to the needs and concerns of residents in order to keep Crystal Lake a wonderful place to live. Therefore, I strongly believe that Cameron Hubbard should be retained as a member of the Crystal Lake City

Fair to all To the Editor: The election of a new assessor for McHenry Township is near. Don’t let anything fool you. The election is about us putting a qualified and fair candidate in that office, not about the candidate being a Democrat or Republican. We need a change after 17 years of abuse of power, dictatorship, bullying, disrespect, inconsistencies, intimidation, lies and unfair treatment of our fellow McHenry citizens. We have been denied time and again our rights to access the basic information we are entitled to about understanding the process and methods the office uses to conduct its business. We deserve better than a “take-it-or-leave-it” mentality. The office deserves a competent person who respects people, provides customer service, educates people about the processes, and, most importantly, is fair to all. Exercise your God- and Constitution-given rights. Go vote on April 9 for a better McHenry. Nick Finia McHenry

county, and Tom will be your leader to address this. Tom is exactly what our village needs. That is why I am supporting him and hope you will too. Mike Kunz Fox River Grove

Restore Grafton To the Editor: Hello, I’m independent candidate Tamara Lueth, running for Grafton Township trustee. The township has been in a downward spiral for the past few years. The independent candidates of the Restore group are the ones to turn the township around. We are a diverse group of individuals, each bringing our own unique experience, knowledge and skill. It is going to take time to get the township back to being financially sound. There are no plans to cut the bus program, senior bingo and current programs. I’ve made it known – the bus program has to stay in place. I’m a home health nurse and the residents of this township need this bus service. Please vote April 9 for the independent candidates of the Restore group – Jim Kearns, Terra Jensen, Tim Hoeft, Joe Holtorf, Dan Ziller Jr. and Tamara Lueth. We will make the township one you can be proud of. Tammy Lueth

What village needs To the Editor: I am asking for your support of Tom Anderson for trustee of the village of Fox River Grove. Tom is a 12-year resident of the village. Shortly after becoming a resident, Tom got involved and joined the fire protection district. Tom became a lieutenant and safety officer shortly after joining. Tom is a leader. He became involved with the village as a member of the zoning board of appeals. Tom is exactly what our village needs. Tom will address our taxes, fiscal accountability, and work to grow our businesses. The village pays the highest tax rates in the


Fresh approach To the Editor: Bruce Kaplan is the first Cary board member to understand the needs of the residents. He listens to what the citizens are talking about and is open to all ideas. This is a refreshing change for Cary. For far too long, Cary residents have had their opinions ignored by past board members and the village staff. We need a fresh approach to the village of Cary. On April 9, vote for Bruce Kaplan for Cary village president. David Henry Cary

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Worthy D-26 candidates

Low: I love McHenry

Stop MCC trustees

To the Editor: The Cary School District 26 community has been through a lot over the past eight years: decimated finances, a threatened state takeover, program cuts, large class sizes and more. Finally, after three consecutive balanced budgets, we are now turning the corner. To continue on this path, I ask that you vote for Josh Howell, Christopher Christensen, Floyd Myers and Julie Jette on April 9. Current board members Myers and Jette will continue guiding the district back while maintaining balanced budgets. I’ve personally worked with Christensen and Howell on several school board committees. Together, they bring a welcome mix of knowledge and skills in technology and communication. They are also committed to balanced budgets. I’m optimistic about the future of District 26 and know Josh Howell, Chris Christensen, Floyd Myers and Julie Jette are best suited to lead the district forward.

To the Editor: I do not just reside in McHenry, I am an active participant in our community. In addition to serving as your mayor, I am a Rotarian, I serve on the Character Counts coalition, I represent the city on the McHenry Area Youth Commission, and I am a proud member of the Warriors Watch Riders. I am a strong and visible leader who is devoted to McHenry. Every town in our country is struggling with the economic climate. I believe that the biggest challenge is keeping our community vital and engaged so that the residents feel like stakeholders in our future. When you look around McHenry, if all that you see is an empty Walmart; then you don’t see what I see. I see community pride. I see a community that supports each other. I hope you will give me the opportunity to continue to serve as your mayor. I love McHenry.

To the Editor: Stop the incumbents who, during their tenure, have voted to increase and spend taxpayers’ money for McHenry County College funding without a voters’ referendum. Stop the candidates who are the insiders and vote to increase taxes for increasing buildings and classrooms when only 45 percent are being utilized. Stop the candidates who want to spend your tax money for a health club under the guise of a new medical facility. Stop and learn about candidates Tom Wilbeck and Chris Jenner, who are looking out for your tax dollars. Vote for Tom Wilbeck, an experienced financial executive and an advocate of community colleges. He and his four children have graduated from community collages, including three from MCC. Vote for Chris Jenner, who has school district experience in balancing the budget and wrote polices forbidding issuing bonds with out a vote. Vote for Tom Wilbeck and Chris Jenner. I will.

Christopher Spoerl Cary

Expensive campaign To the Editor: When you see what seems like entirely too much money being spent on an election campaign for some office, it makes you wonder why that’s happening. The mayoral race in McHenry is a good example. We see very expensive electronic billboards, many expensive commercial fixed billboards, and hundreds upon hundreds of signs throughout the city promoting the re-election of our current mayor. It is obviously an expensive undertaking. The mayor has written to her family, friends and supporters telling of the tragedy of her personal bankruptcy and how that should be isolated from her leadership of the city’s financial destiny. The voters will decide that. But the question arises as to who is bankrolling her expensive campaign, since she can’t if she’s bankrupt, and why is that happening? Possibly after the election, when the financial contributions and expenditures have to be reported, we’ll know who that is.

Sue Low McHenry

Excellent candidates To the Editor: It is a privilege to support individuals for elected office who I have known and admired for many years. As Crystal Lake city councilmen, Jeff Thorsen and Ralph Dawson set a standard of excellence by seeking out and representing the best interests of the community. Over the years, each consistently has demonstrated a unique combination of common-sense leadership and informed decision making that has contributed mightily to good, honest government in Crystal Lake. For the three McHenry County College trustee positions, Mike Smith, Molly Walsh and Tom Willbeck recognize the ongoing needs and sentiments of the community and will stand up for these concerns. In addition, Smith’s adept leadership abilities will help move MCC in the right direction, and Walsh’s constructive and collaborative manner will bring diverse opinions and groups together. Please make your voices heard April 9 by voting, and please consider casting your vote for these excellent candidates.

Hubbard for a brighter future To the Editor: Cameron Hubbard should be Crystal Lake residents’ choice for City Council. Cameron is a dedicated leader in the community and only wants to see Crystal Lake grow and prosper. It is nice to see someone young, 28 years old, enthusiastic about helping out their community. Cameron has grown up in Crystal Lake. I know this because he has been my closest friend and will be my best man at my upcoming wedding. He is a man of integrity and strong morals. He has a drive to do what is right and what is needed. He will serve this community and its members with class and dignity. It is time to see Crystal Lake turn to one of its young leaders to help take us toward a brighter future. Vote Cameron Hubbard on April 9. Adam Olson Crystal Lake

McHenry needs Low To The Editor: I would like to voice my support of the re-election of McHenry Mayor Sue Low. In 2009, when I returned home from a combat deployment in Iraq with the U.S. Marine Corps, I was deeply honored to be greeted by the Warriors Watch Riders. After proceeding to the McHenry VFW, Mayor Low decorated me with a signed proclamation expressing her appreciation. To my knowledge, she plays a part of honoring every McHenry veteran who returns home. Her dedication and support of her country, our troops and her constituents are unrivaled. McHenry needs the continued, unwavering leadership of Mayor Sue Low. Remember to vote April 9. It’s one of the freedoms we fight for. Thank you. Kevin Meyer Temecula, Calif.

Do homework in Cary race To the Editor: Mark Kownick served two years as a Cary village trustee after being politically appointed by Village President Tom Kierna, and lost the following election. Kownick’s accomplishments as trustee? Well, he voted to raise permit fees and to make more items subject to permits and associated fees, voted to establish commuter parking fees in train station lots on Saturdays, and voted twice to raise property taxes. Bruce Kaplan was elected by the residents of Cary. Kaplan’s accomplishments as a trustee? Well, voted for new contracts that lowered electric and garbage bills for residents, voted to repeal Saturday parking fees at the train station, voted to add free parking spaces to accommodate downtown parking at the train station, and voted not to raise your real estate taxes twice. Just saying, Do your homework.

Moving Cary forward To the Editor: During my tenure serving the residents of Cary as your trustee, I have had the pleasure of working with some very dedicated and forward-thinking individuals on the Village Board. In the April 9 election, the voters will elect a new village president, and I urge those who care about our future to vote for Mark Kownick. While I have a sincere respect for Mark’s opponent, Bruce Kaplan, I have seen Mr. Kaplan expend more energy over issues of the past than opportunities for our future. Yes, we can learn from past mistakes, and we have, but we need to have a leader who is progressive, professional and committed to the best interests of our entire community going forward. That person is Mark Kownick, who I support for the next Cary village president. I urge you to join me in support of Mark’s vision for our future.

Tom McDermott Crystal Lake

Hubbard has fresh perspective To the Editor: Having lived in Crystal Lake since before Cameron Hubbard was born, I am glad to see him represent the next generation of leaders stepping up to serve in local politics. Cameron is 28 years old and eager to learn and work hard to provide Crystal Lake with the best services possible. Cameron has been accessible and very open to working with others to find solutions. Although he is young, he brings a fresh perspective to working and living in Crystal Lake. I look forward to seeing Cameron continue to work for the benefit of this community. I am going to vote for Cameron Hubbard for the Crystal Lake City Council on April 9, and I am asking for you to vote for him too. Joe Gottemoller Crystal Lake

Cuda seeks your vote To the Editor: From 1991 to 2001, I served as McHenry’s mayor. I am again seeking the voters’ support April 9. My primary goal is business retention, and the capture of all available tax dollars. I believe in open and transparent government. City Hall belongs to all of the residents of McHenry. McHenry faces many challenges, and I don’t presume to know all of the answers. But I do know that these challenges can only be met successfully if we work together, respect each other’s opinions, and always act in the city’s best interest, regardless of pressure from special interests. As your mayor, I will meet with any constituent and return all phone calls. I pledge and open, honest and fiscally responsible City Hall. Together we can make McHenry a great place to live and raise our families. Please vote for Steve Cuda on April 9. Steve Cuda McHenry

Fortunate to have Low To the Editor: Ambassador/Mayor Sue Low, you have my complete support. Between yourself and staff, it was a pleasure working with you over the years on the expansion of Gary Lang Auto Group. I know my additional employees appreciate the expansion, along with the people who were able to work on the project. What a great feeling it was to have you as mayor doing everything possible so the commercial and business community in McHenry can continue to grow with your leadership. How fortunate we all are that you are willing to run for another four years as mayor. Gary Lang Gary Lang Auto Group, McHenry

Tomasello best choice in CL To The Editor: A few years ago, I saw my son-in-law Jim Tomasello and his crew working on a playground. The school had gotten a load of mulch with nails in it, and he was raking it out and hauling it away. He did it

Saturday, April 6, 2013 • Page A10

for free because he didn’t want a child hurt. Last year, he donated a landscape area to a school. I have been at school sports events, and Jim cheers for all the kids. He has sponsored sports teams and contributed generously to fundraisers. Jim has been a concerned voice for his neighborhood for a long time. Residents of Crystal Lake would benefit by voting for Jim Tomasello for City Council. He knows the issues of the community, is always talking with people, and would represent and serve resident’s needs. (If you ever meet him, you will see he always has a smile.) Sharon and Tom Flynn Woodstock

Support these Grafton hopefuls To the Editor: On April 9, voters will have the opportunity to select a new slate of candidates to oversee the operation of Grafton Township. It’s time to restore integrity, trust, cooperation and transparency to the people of the township. I endorse Jim Kearns (supervisor), Tim Hoeft (highway commissioner), Terra Jensen (assessor) and trustee candidates Dan Ziller Jr., Tammy Lueth, Joseph Holtorf and Robert Wagner. I believe these individuals will prove to the citizens that they can successfully fulfill these offices. Let’s join together and vote independent April 9. Marilyn Fettes Huntley

No on 377 board To the Editor: On April 9, McHenry County residents will be voting on the 377 Board, which is the creation of another taxing body in the county to help those with developmental disabilities. Folks, the last thing we need in this state and county is another taxing body. This state already has the most taxing bodies in the country. The creation of this board will add $33.33 per $100,000 in home value. This an additional $50 to $150 per year in taxes. I’m appalled that the county would even think of creating another taxing body. It’s time to send a message that we have all had enough of taxation. I know this is not a big election, but there are still important issues and races that affect your taxes. Please vote. Jim Callanan Spring Grove

Vote for Cuda To the Editor: McHenry Shores subdivision residents have been terribly disserved by McHenry Mayor Sue Low. At the recent candidates’ forum for the mayoral election, Steve Cuda spoke of the history of the city’s attempts to acquire McHenry Shores Water Co. on behalf of the McHenry Shores residents. He stated, correctly, that they would have to pay for it and that it would not be cheap. Sue Low said the city was in negotiations to buy the system. We found out the next day that the city had already mailed a letter to the residents telling them that the city lost out on the bidding process with the bankruptcy judge. The city never thought another operator might outbid them and operate it with Band-Aids like the previous owner. It’s at least a possibility. Too bad we won’t know the details until after the election. Vote for Cuda on April 9. Maria Russo McHenry

Perschke already the best To the Editor: Change is not always a good thing, not when you already have Carol Perschke as McHenry Township assessor. Making a change now, with property values so important, would be disruptive and unnecessary. I’ve seen what Carol brings to the table as township assessor. She was first in the county to provide a township website for parcel identification, a valuable tool for property owners and business professionals. There’s great information to understand or appeal your assessment on it. Carol is innovative, with extensive training and state recognition. Her experience with staff management,

budgeting and network issues ensure she is the clear choice. Challenger Mary Mahady brings only a small portion of what’s needed to hold this position. Don’t be fooled. You already have the best. Vote Carol Perschke for assessor to keep McHenry Township the best. Becky Corcoran Crystal Lake

Hubbard a wonderful asset To the Editor: I met Cameron Hubbard last year attending the 2012 Crystal Lake Leaders In Action workshop. As emcee for the workshop, he introduced the presenters and encouraged the attendees to apply what they learned from each presenter in the form of homework assignments. This year, I have had the pleasure of working with Cameron as a cocommittee member in the Leaders in Action program. I have observed his leadership and public speaking skills, and am impressed. He has proved to be a wonderful asset to this committee. He demonstrates a high level of integrity and has gone above and beyond the expectations within this role. He would make a wonderful City Council member. Patty Luchsinger Algonquin

Mayor Low has my support To the Editor: As a commercial real estate development and investment company based in McHenry, having developed McHenry Corporate Center and the 117-room Hampton Inn, I am supporting Mayor Sue Low. It has been a pleasure working with Mayor Low and staff over the past 10 years. With Mayor Low’s leadership toward commercial development, McHenry has weathered this economic downturn better than most, creating commercial tax base and jobs. Mayor Low is always available to discuss vital issues with the business community, including those industrial companies seeking relocation to McHenry, keeping McHenry a great place for business. Scott Dixon McHenry

Retain Hubbard in Crystal Lake To the Editor: Cameron Hubbard is a lifelong family friend of mine and resident of Crystal Lake. His grandparents grew up alongside my own, and their strong work ethic and family values shine brightly today through Cameron’s actions and character. Cameron Hubbard is the type of person who will give you the shirt off of his back. He is always willing to step forward as a leader and lend a hand to his friends and family. Now he would like to do the same for the community that raised him. I am confident that Cameron will always strive to listen to the needs and concerns of residents in order to keep Crystal Lake a wonderful place to live. Therefore, I strongly believe that Cameron Hubbard should be retained as a member of the Crystal Lake City Council. Natalie Embach Crystal Lake

Great relationship To the Editor: Well, baseball fans, it’s that time of year again. Opening day for McHenry Little League is April 27, and the McHenry High School season is already under way. Anyone in McHenry who has a child who plays baseball here knows that we have beautiful fields. As a completely volunteer organization, we rely on our community to support our league. We have built a great relationship with the current Mayor Sue Low, the aldermen and city staff. As a result, we now have Buss Field, Anderson Field and two others at the VFW. In collaboration with the city of McHenry, School District 156 and the McHenry Baseball Association, we now have a premier varsity high school field at Petersen Park capable of night games under the lights. That’s why I feel it’s important to get out and vote for our current mayor, Sue Low. Joe Meyer President, McHenry Baseball Association

McHENRY MAN GETS SEX ABUSE CHARGES WOODSTOCK – A McHenry man stands accused of sexually abusing a child on three occasions, according to the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office. Craig L. Tankson, 30, has been charged with two felony counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and three felony counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child. The victim was under the age of 13, according to a news release. Tankson was being held Friday at the McHenry County Jail on a $100,000 bond. The investigation included members of the sheriff’s office and McHenry Police Department. Two incidents took place in unincorporated McHenry County near McHenry, and the third took place within McHenry city limits, the release said. Further details were not being released because of the victim’s age.

D-50 hopefuls split on levy 7 candidates seek spots on Harvard school board in Tuesday’s election By SHAWN SHINNEMAN HARVARD – A couple of candidates for District 50 school board support freezing the tax levy, and a few others would consider it. In written responses to Northwest Herald questionnaires, the controversial subject split Harvard candidates, with sentiments rang-

ing from strong approval to considerable opposition. “I would support freezing D50’s taxing district’s levy,” said Rebecca Klein, an incumbent candidate seeking her second term. “I don’t think it’s unreasonable to ask a district to live within their citizens’ means.” Incumbents Klein, Diana Bird and school board President Richard Stoxen join

Cary Junior High teachers gather around a video camera to watch the final take of their new music video that was shown to the students Friday. The latest video is about paying it forward.

Message behind the music Cary Junior High teachers take to the screen to deliver lessons By JOSEPH BUSTOS CARY – Assistant Principal Eric Larson carried his hand-held camera as he walked up the Cary Junior High main hallway. In single long takes, he was recording images of teachers doing kind acts for each other – and then paying it forward, such as opening a door for someone on crutches – helping pick up dropped papers or removing toilet paper from the shoes of someone who just left the bathroom. “The exchanges were good, they’re believable,” Larson told the teachers after the first take. After some editing, the song “One Day” by Mati-

This year, during quarterly assemblies, the school has shown videos produced by staff mem-

bers. Each video had a message, such as how kindness to others can be a boomerang, or making the school the students’ home. Earlier this year, the third video was of five teachers from Cary Junior High showing off uncoordinated dance moves and serenading a dragon. They were lip-syncing and dancing to One Direction’s “You Don’t Know You’re Beautiful.” To start off the year, teachers did a re-enactment of the Harvard baseball team’s dance to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” that went viral on YouTube. Staff members wanted students to be

WOODSTOCK – With the new fiscal year approaching, the city of Woodstock will move quickly to fill a couple of department director positions. Woodstock’s Finance Director Roscoe Stelford will take over as city manager May 1, leaving his position open. The city also will hire a new public works director to replace John Isbell, who retired in November. Jeff Van Landuyt, formerly assistant public works director, has been serving as the interim director. The Public Works Department consists of the streets, parks, sewer and water maintenance, water treatment, wastewater treatment, fleet maintenance, engineering and administration divisions. “There’s a whole team of excellent supervisors to help lead that department,” Stelford said. The city is looking for candidates who have shown a dedication to their past jobs, work well with the community and are dedicated to customer service. The deadline to submit résumés for the public works position is April 17. Candidates have until the end of the month to submit their résumés for finance director, a position that takes “a good communicator who

CARPENTERSVILLE – A man was found dead inside Trinity Landscape of Northern Illinois at 1050 Tamarac Drive after there was a call for a fire. The man’s name was withheld by the police department pending notification of his next of kin, Carpentersville police said in a news release.

Chaplain Oluwatoyin Olabisi Hines of the Illinois National Guard speaks Friday at the military sexual trauma workshop hosted by the McHenry County Health Board and Lake-McHenry Veterans and Family Services.

CRYSTAL LAKE – About one in three women, and 1 percent of men, in the military have experienced a sexual assault, according to the U.S. Defense Department. Those alarming statistics have created concern among many in the military, and health professionals in McHenry County are taking steps to become better educated on military sexual abuse issues. The McHenry County Mental Health Board, along with the Lake-McHenry Veterans and Family Services, hosted a military sexual trauma workshop Friday for mental health professionals. The workshop focused on the unique needs asso-

“To see my brothers and sisters being hurt by others in this way, it’s against everything I’ve been taught and everything I am as a Marine.” Anna Sobecki, gunnery sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps ciated with military sexual trauma, and educate health professionals on how to effectively counsel someone who has experienced a sexual assault. “Hopefully we can empower our mental health providers here today to know what they can do to be veteran friendly and be a safe place for veterans to come,” said Laura Gallagher Watkin, the director of veteran programs for Health and Disability Advocates in Chicago. Watkin said military members who experience

a sexual assault often suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, suicidal thoughts and other psychological disorders, and it’s important to understand the unique circumstances that come with a military sexual assault. “A military sexual trauma can be very different than rape or sexual assault in a civilian setting,” Watkin said. “A lot of the people who’ve had that happen to them, this is their career. It’s all they’ve ever wanted to be. … Sometimes a military sexual trauma can re-

ally derail that.” Anna Sobecki, a gunnery sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps, works as a uniformed victim advocate providing support for military members who have been sexually assaulted. “To see my brothers and sisters being hurt by others in this way, it’s against everything I’ve been taught and everything I am as a Marine,” Sobecki said. “I have to do the right thing and take a stance and start educating others about this program.” Sobecki said that sexually assaulted military personnel often try to forget or brush off the attack, as they fear admitting it would hurt their status in the military. “They will never admit

Candidates explain Bullet found at Harvard Junior High their qualifications HARVARD: SCHOOL SAFETY


• D-50 Continued from page B1 educating our children does not go down based on a decline in housing prices, so I feel the two are unrelated.” Regarding advancements in student achievement, candidates for the board lauded last year’s passing of new strategic goals. Crosby, who served as superintendent for 14 years, said he would make it a priority as a school board member to study and support those goals. “The primary role of a school board member is policy setting and hiring the most qualified staff to administer and work with our children,” he added. Finfrock, a retired Harvard citizen who said his “good common sense” makes him a strong candidate for the job, said he’d look to improve education at Harvard schools. “Maybe smaller classes. More teachers,” he said. “Our children are the future.” Bird is seeking her third term on the board. She said she believes in District 50’s goals and wants to continue supporting greater student

achievement. “I strive for honesty, transparency, open communication, diversity and success within our district,” Bird said. Reilly, an electrician for the Union Pacific Railroad, also places a premium on transparency, and said he would like to improve community relations and checks and balances districtwide. “I believe transparency leads to accountability which creates trust,” Reilly said. “Trust is vital to improving the working relationship between our community and our district.” Stoxen, a Harvard farmer who was first elected to the school board in the 1970s and started his current stint in 2004, said his business background gives him a solid foundation in finance and government regulations. “The people of Harvard need sensible, forward-thinking, professional people to lead the district through these tough financial times,” Stoxen said. “It is important to have both parents of students and people without children in the district, on the board, as we need that balance.”

Manager says hires must be good communicators • POSITIONS Continued from page B1 can express very complex issues in a clear and concise manner,” Stelford said. These two hires are Stelford’s first as city manager. The city’s finance director for 13 years, Stelford more recent-

ly had taken on the role of deputy city manager. But he said that position isn’t necessarily tied to the finance director and potentially could go to the director of a different department. “We have a lot of skilled department heads here in the city of Woodstock,” Stelford said.

HARVARD – A round of ammunition was found Friday morning at Harvard Junior High School, police said. Authorities were called to the school around 6:20 a.m. for a report of a suspicious incident, according to the Harvard Police Department. Employees at Harvard School

This was the third time in less than four months that ammunition has been found at District 50 schools. A Harvard Junior High School student was charged with disorderly conduct in mid-December after he brought three .30-caliber shell casings onto a bus to school. Students at the five district schools were kept in their classrooms during that

incident. Two days before, Crosby Elementary School officials found a .22-caliber shell casing on the cafeteria floor. That caused administrators to keep students in their classrooms for more than an hour while police searched the building. The incidents are not considered to be related, police said.

Professionals hope to better educate military • WORKSHOP Continued from page B1 that there is a problem,” she said. “The stereotypical thought is that they are seen as weak. They won’t be able to perform their duties or be in charge of military members underneath them because they are ‘broke.’ It’s OK to be broke. It’s OK to heal. That’s the biggest thing we’re trying to educate to everybody.” The daylong workshop



District 50 told police that custodial staff had found a .22-caliber bullet in the boys’ locker room. Harvard police searched the school before students arrived for class, according to a news release. No other suspicious items were found, and no suspects have been identified. The incident is being investigated.

included several discussions from military and health care professionals, a viewing of “The Invisible War,” an Academy Award-nominated documentary on military sexual trauma, and a panel discussion including a military sexual assault survivor who explained the problems she had accessing mental health services. “We want to create a community that can embrace our veterans and really help them,” Watkin said.

Cary teachers wanted to make students feel more comfortable Watch the videos

• TEACHERS Continued from page B1 motivated to sign up for the school’s various clubs and athletic opportunities. They also wanted to change the climate of the building to make it more inviting and less scary, math teacher Jill Natrop said. “It was more, welcome to junior high, this was how your teachers got to school today,” Natrop said. “I think when we did, we did it to be amusing, and never thought it would take off the way it did.” The second video involved most of the teaching staff. They had choreographed moves through the main hallways as they lip-sang to Phillip Phillips’ “Home.” As an added bonus Friday, teachers also created their own “Harlem Shake” video. Each video includes a written message for students to read at the end.

Cary Junior High has posted its videos on its YouTube channel at: cjhdragons

“I want [the school] to feel welcoming. I want kids to be involved. I want kids to want to get up and go to school,” Natrop said. The videos have been popular. “Had the students not reacted so favorably to the first one, we would have never done it again,” Natrop said. “The kids were laughing, and the parents were supportive.” The videos have been shared on Facebook and YouTube. Chris Thompson, a history teacher who usually wears a tie every day, said the students get to see their teachers in a different setting and maybe acting a little

silly. “I think it’s important for students to see you in a different light,” Thompson said. “So they see you’re human, there’s another side to you, another dimension. I think it makes the classroom part easier, too, because they know you’re real, you’re not just this person who’s always making demands of them. You have this other side of you.” Sixth-grader Evan Eckheart cheered when he saw one of his teachers in the kindness video. He said he has enjoyed the videos this year. “It shows they care about us and they’re nice,” Evan said. Eighth-graders Brianna Waack and Carli Petri enjoyed how their teachers are willing to poke fun at themselves. “The videos always get our attention,” Brianna said. “They’re dancing and being funny.”

It’s the Small Things in Life, Right?



Have any of you read “The Happiness Project?” I haven’t. I have seen the author interviewed about that book and her newer one, “Happier at Home” but I just haven’t been intrigued enough to dive into either. Lately though I have been wondering what makes me happy. Perhaps it is getting older and having more of my life under control. Maybe it is seeing Son and Daughter becoming adults and wanting them to find their own happiness. It might even be the positive outlook the Golfer in My Life maintains most every day finally rubbing off on me. Whatever has triggered this, it’s definitely got me thinking.

Maybe it was getting two kids to daycare five days a week for many years but I do love a “good” morning. On Wednesday, I had one of my most efficient mornings in a long time. You know when everything is just clicking along with no extra effort. I had a cute outfit, it was a good hair day (how often do both those hap-

pen at the same time?), lunch was a breeze to pack and when I looked at the clock, I was ten minutes ahead of schedule. It literally made me smile and I thought “this is going to be a good day.” And it was. Then there are my “Harvard guys”. (Yes, the Golfer is from there and the dog was originally picked up by Animal Control on Flat Iron Road.) With this good weather, the four-legged beast has been outside even more. Even though he has lived with us for over seven years, I still cannot get enough of seeing him on the deck, basking in the sun. I find myself saying out loud “he is such a handsome dog.” Please tell me that all dog owners do this! And yes, the Golfer still makes my heart skip a beat even after almost thirteen years. When we meet somewhere, either for lunch or running errands, seeing him across a parking lot or sitting at a table waiting for me, I feel like we are on one of our early dates. Oh, the power of boys from Harvard! Add finding a cute shirt on sale, watching a Premier League soccer game with Son, seeing a random funny text from Daughter and getting all green lights on Route 14 to my list. My day to day stuff isn’t the most exciting but fortunately, it works for me. Here’s to a happy weekend for everyone, whatever that may be. For us, it is a Michigan victory tonight. Go Blue!

“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 Northwest Herald

“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 Associated Press

“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). – Christy

Lemire, The Associated Press

“Evil Dead” HHH STARRING: Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas PLOT: Five friends head to a remote cabin, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads them to unwittingly summon up demons living in the nearby woods. The evil presence possesses them until only one is left to fight for survival. RATING: R for strong bloody violence and gore, some sexual content and language TIME: 1 hour, 31 minutes VERDICT: True to the essence of its predecessor but reinventing some particulars (precedent is set by Raimi’s “Evil Dead II,” which practically remade the story from scratch), this film retains the five-youths-ina-cabin premise, but renames the characters and changes some relationships to ensure we don’t expect a beat-by-beat remake. And while the original had a conventional slasher-flick setup – a co-ed spring break trip to the woods – this one offers more justification for the remote setting and the characters’ reluctance to leave when things start to go south. Pucci is this “Evil Dead’s” most charismatic cast member, but Alvarez and his co-writer Rodo Sayagues give him only one wisecrack in the whole film. Jokes are almost non-existent here; Alvarez comes closest to trying to make us laugh (and it works) when his camera casually shows us a prop – a shotgun, a chain saw – whose importance we remember from Raimi’s trilogy. Instead, he and his

HHHH - Excellent HHH - Recommended HH - Not recommended H - Awful crack effects team work to make our stomachs turn. From the initial attack on Mia – the infamous “tree rape” scene – to the literal rainstorm of blood that accompanies the climax, “Evil Dead” delivers satisfyingly disgusting effects that serve an ever-accelerating action pace. – John

DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter.

“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 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. –

Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald

“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 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,

“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 toughguy former agent played by Butler gets to kick a whole lot of 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-on-one 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 rockribbed 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.

Simple strategies may ease frequent belching Dear Dr. K: I belch a lot more than I used to, and I feel an uncomfortable fullness in my upper abdomen after eating. Are there any natural ways to treat this? Dear Reader: If you’re belching and feeling bloated more than you’d like, there are natural treatments you should consider. To understand them, you need to understand why we belch. Every time we swallow, we take in a little bit of air. Some of it travels down the esophagus and into the upper part of the stomach. When the stomach starts to expand from the accumulated air

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff inside it, little sensors in the stomach wall may trigger a reaction to expel the air. This reaction opens the small ring of muscle between the esophagus (the swallowing tube) and the stomach. That ring normally is closed tight to prevent stomach contents from entering the esophagus. When the ring relaxes, the air that has built up in the stomach gets vented back up the esopha-

gus and out of the mouth. Air rushing through the throat and mouth makes noise: We belch. (I’ve put an illustration showing why and how we belch on my website.) Our bodies were built to breathe in the air around us, not to swallow it. So why do we swallow air? These are the most common reasons: Air swallowing. Some people get into a pattern of swallowing air and quickly belching it out again. This isn’t something they plan to do, or are even aware of doing. It just happens. Carbonated drinks. Carbonated beverages bring

extra air into the stomach; the gas in the drink becomes gas inside the stomach. Gulping them down or drinking through a straw worsens the problem. Gum and hard candy. Many people swallow air without realizing it when chewing gum or sucking on hard candies. Cutting back on carbonated beverages, gum and hard candies might help. If you’re a fast eater, slow down; you may swallow less air with your food. Also try eliminating foods known to cause gassiness from your diet. Many

healthy vegetables cause gas in some people: cabbage, broccoli, beets, asparagus, and my own favorite, Brussels sprouts. For people with sensitivity to wheat (particularly the gluten in wheat), wheat-based products can produce gas. For people with lactose intolerance, milkbased products can cause gas along with other symptoms. I’ve diagnosed lactose intolerance in patients who didn’t know they had it – but they sure knew they had gas problems. If you repeatedly swallow air, you may be able to break the habit with the help of a

speech therapist. It’s rare for people with your symptoms to have a serious underlying medical condition, but it happens. If your abdomen is actually distended – visibly larger than normal – see your doctor right away. Otherwise, try some of the natural approaches I’ve suggested; they may ease your belching. If they don’t, talk to your doctor about medication.

• Write to Dr. Komaroff at or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

Young actress cast in old roles tires of playing second banana Dear Abby: I’m a member of a close-knit theater company for teens, and I auditioned for the musical “Fame.” The director wants to give me a role as one of the teachers. Show after show, I get matronly roles with no memorable lines or funny scenes. I don’t know if I should accept the part. If I do, I’ll get to be with my friends. If I don’t, there still will be another show coming up that I can audition for. What should I do? – Young Actress in Michigan Dear Young Actress: Grab all the time you can get on stage. If you didn’t have the depth it takes to portray a mature role, your director wouldn’t want to assign it to you. This is a COMPLIMENT about your abilities. Audition for the next show, as well. The more varied the roles you play, the more you can develop your craft. Dear Abby: My husband and I decided to take some classes at a local community college. We both have college degrees, but there was a class we were interested in. We are the oldest students in the class by 10 to 20 years. I am irritated by our classmates’ disrespect and rudeness to the instructor.

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips It takes the form of talking with each other when the instructor is speaking, then asking her to explain what she just discussed while they were talking. They sometimes get so loud I can’t hear what the teacher is saying. Is there anything I can do as a fellow student to get them to stop? Because of the age difference, I’m afraid most of them would think I was being bossy. – Anony-

mous In California Dear Anonymous: The teacher you describe does not appear to be a particularly effective one or she would have better control of the classroom. Because the noise level is so high you can’t hear the lecture, I have two suggestions: The first is to speak privately with the teacher. If that doesn’t do the trick, when the students around you become disruptive, ask them to pipe down so you can hear what the instructor is saying. That is not being bossy. You paid for the class, and you should get your

money’s worth. Dear Abby: My husband and I often go out to eat at local ethnic restaurants with a small group of friends. When we’re at a Mexican restaurant, I often throw a couple of “arribas!” into our conversation. When we’re at an Italian restaurant, I will sometimes use an Italian accent to say “pizza pie-a!” My husband tells me it’s offensive. I don’t mean to insult anyone. My comments are made in the spirit of fun. Furthermore, the owners and servers at these restaurants are hardly ethnic Mexicans or Italians. I would never wish to hurt someone or be derogatory, so I told my husband I’d consult you. What do you think? –

Muy Caliente In Iowa Dear Muy Caliente: When you visit a Jewish deli, do you tell the server, “Oy vey, I’ll have the corned beef”? Your husband is right – cool it. Not because you’ll offend the servers in the restaurant, but because stereotyping makes you look like a fool.

Stones add Chicago show THINGS


Saturday, April 6, 2013 •

If you’re upset the Rolling Stones won’t be coming to your city on their upcoming tour, don’t be too stressed – the rockers say more shows may be added. “Normally when you announce a tour like this, you announce part of it, you leave it to be, you see what happens, you might do a date here and another date there. You don’t want to be completely hand fast, so you do leave some dates in between,” Mick Jagger said in an interview Thursday. “So we’ll see what happens.” The Stones announced this week that they’ll kick off their “50 and Counting” tour in Los Angeles; the date will be announced later. The second show is in Oakland, Calif., on May 5. They’ll also visit Las Vegas, Toronto, Chicago and Boston, and wrap in Philadelphia on June 18. On Friday, the band said second shows were added in Toronto and Chicago.

HBO making Ephron documentary Nora Ephron will be the subject of an HBO documentary being made by one of her sons, journalist Jacob Bernstein. The network said Friday the project, titled “Everything is Copy,” will also have Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter as executive producer. Ephron died at age 71 last year.

Three ‘Housewives’ to be charged

Jones laughs at fashion critics AMC’s “Mad Men” drama may garner attention for bringing back ’60s glamour, but January Jones, known for her daring red carpet looks, says she doesn’t care what critics think of her personal style. “I think that fashion is an art,” the 35-year-old actress, who has topped many best- and worst-dressed lists, said in a recent interview. “It’s a fun way to express yourself. ... And I sort of like not pleasing people a bit.” Take, for example, the Prabal Gurung gown she wore to this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. Critics both praised and criticized the bold black-and-white structured ensemble. “It makes me laugh when the ‘Fashion Police’ hate what I wear,” Jones said. “I loved my whole look that night. It was really fun. And I just like people looking at me like I was crazy.” Another daring style that left critics divided: her dramatic 2012 Emmys look. Jones made a statement with a severe slicked-back hairdo, smoky cat eyes and a semisheer black organza number by Zac Posen. Jones returns as steely housewife Betty Francis, ex-wife of Madison Avenue adman Don Draper, when the new season of “Mad Men” premieres 8 p.m. Sunday. And whether you love or hate her fashion choices, Jones welcomes the attention. “That’s good, I embrace it,” she said of being considered a style icon. “I love fashion so much, and I keep trying to push the envelope and keep doing things that are fun for me, different.”

Hallmark Channel says it’s introducing an annual “Kitten Bowl” on Feb. 2. It’s a three-hour showcase of feline agility, but the network says any form of cuteness is key to the game. Cat contenders will be recruited from animal shelters.

The Mariners’ Jesus Montero hits an RBI single off White Sox relief pitcher Nate Jones, scoring pinch runner Robert Andino, in the 10th inning Friday.

MARINERS 8 WHITE SOX 7 (10 INN.) SOX INSIDER Meghan Montemurro

Bullpen falters for first time CHICAGO – White Sox relievers had been automatic this season. Sox relievers were used sparingly during their opening series against the Royals, but came through when needed. They can thank starting pitchers Chris Sale, Jake Peavy and Gavin Floyd, all of whom recorded a quality start, for the light workload. Long reliever Hector Next Santiago entered Friday’s game against Kansas City the Mariners at Sox, 12:10 as the only rep.m. today, CSN, liever to pitch AM-670 more than one inning, but even that wasn’t a stressful three innings for the lefthander, who has the stamina to start. The bullpen was needed early Friday, however. Starter Jose Quintana could only make it through four innings and left disaster in his wake. Seattle’s first seven batters reached base in the fifth, aided by a Quintana fielding error, and the Mariners cashed in during the five-run inning. Although the Sox rallied to tie the game twice, the Mariners finally scored off the bullpen, scoring two in the 10th to hand the South Siders an 8-7 loss. Seattle’s two runs in the ninth snapped the bullpen’s 12 2/3 innings scoreless streak to start the seasons.

Gehrke does it all McHenry pitcher strikes out 12 in shutout, goes 3 for 4 By BILL PEMSTEIN LAKE ZURICH – McHenry’s Devon Gehrke went 3 for 4 Friday and went the distance on the mound, striking out 12 Lake Zurich hitters in a 10-0 win over the Bears. The senior allowed two harmless singles to Lake Zurich’s Joe Pizzolato. The first ended Gehrke’s no-hit bid with two outs in the fourth inning. “I was angry about that,’’ Gehrke said. Pizzolato singled to lead off the seventh but was erased by one of two McHenry double plays. The Warriors (6-3) were also hitless entering the third inning. Both Gehrke and teammate Cole HoeppelTranter were hit by a pitch leading off the first and second innings. In all, five McHenry players got hit on a cold afternoon. “It’s tough when it gets cold out,’’ McHenry coach Brian Rockweiler said. The top of the third inning determined the game.

Svoboda (two-run double), Payton Lykins (RBI double), Hoeppel-Tranter (RBI single), Adam Mattson (RBI single) and sophomore Jack Glossen (RBI single). “We had the one big inning and they had a couple of errors as well,’’ Rockweiler said. That clearly was enough support for Gehrke. He struck out four of the first six Bears he faced. “He threw strikes,’’ Rockweiler said. “He got ahead of their hitters and had all of his pitches working.” The left-hander, headed to McHenry County College next season, said he relied on his fastball to open the game.

Hawks approach abbreviated season’s final countdown CHICAGO – The Blackhawks have had a tough time closing out games lately. They’ll need to find a way to finish the regular season without a similar struggle. It doesn’t seem so long ago that the puck dropped on the NHL season, but only 12 games Next remain before Hawks at Nashville, the playoffs. Three of those 2 p.m. today, CSN, games will AM-720

come against the Nashville Predators, including today’s matchup at Bridgestone Arena. Marian Hossa knows that teams are judged by how they finish, not how they start. The Hawks opened the season with a record-setting 24-game point streak but have gone 3-3-1 in their past seven games while being outscored in the third period, 11-5. “We’ve done lots of good things so far, so we’re happy about that,” Hossa said. “We’ve got a long road ahead of us. “We know it’s going to be tougher and tougher.” In recent seasons, the Hawks

HAWKS INSIDER Tom Musick have played some of their best hockey at the end of the regular season. A year ago, Joel Quenneville’s club went 8-1-3 in the final 12 games but lost to the Phoenix Coyotes in the first round of the playoffs. Before the Hawks’ Stanley Cup title run in 2010, the Hawks went 7-3-2 in the final dozen games. Here’s a week-by-week look at the Hawks’ final stretch of the regular season.

THIRD-TO-FINAL WEEK Today: Nashville (road) Sunday: Nashville (home) Tuesday: Minnesota (road) Friday: Detroit (home)

SECOND-TO-FINAL WEEK April 14: St. Louis (road) April 15: Dallas (home) April 19: Nashville (home) April 20: Phoenix (home)

Home-and-home series can be a ton of fun in the NHL, especially when those series feature two teams that have a deep familiarity with one another. The Predators are desperate for points to climb back into the Western Conference playoff picture, but the Hawks cannot afford a letdown with the Ducks in close range for the No. 1 seed. Six points in the next four games should keep the Hawks on top of the conference. Target: 6 points

The Hawks have three home games in this four-game span, which offers a great chance to build a winning streak. This season, the Hawks are 13-3-2 at the United Center. If you think that’s impressive, how about this statistic: Since 2008-09, the Hawks are 117-45-20 on home ice. Add the fact that Dallas, Nashville and Phoenix are on the outside looking in when it comes

MUST-SEE TV Men’s basketball: NCAA Division I tournament, Final Four, Wichita State vs. Louisville, at Atlanta, 5 p.m. today, CBS A team from the state of Kentucky back in the Final Four with tons of talent? That’s right, it’s the Louisville Cards. Rick Pitino and Co. descend upon Atlanta and hope to push themselves into the national title game. It won’t be easy, but I expect Louisville’s defense to smother the Shockers and Rockford Auburn grad Fred Van Vleet.

Michigan sophomore Trey Burke leads the Big Ten’s last hope for a national title this season. Burke, the Associated Press Player of the Year, looks to help Michigan to a national title.

Sharapova led, 3-2, in the second set and then it was Serena from there. Sharapova’s play wasn’t terrible, but Serena was so much better. Serena’s so much fun to watch.

CLS grad Aubert learns on the run As a distance runner, Kristina Aubert admits she still has a lot to learn. “I don’t think you get comfortable as a distance runner until you do it for a couple of years,” said Aubert, a Crystal Lake South graduate. The past two weeks, Aubert’s learning curve has been on a drastic upswing. Aubert, a junior at NCAA Division I Arkansas State, won the 5,000-meter race March 23 at the LSU Relays in Jacqui Baton Rouge, La., in a person- Aubert al-best time of 16:54.51, the top time by a Sun Belt Conference runner this season and the fifth-best time in the NCAA West Region. Last weekend, in only her second career 10-kilometer race, Aubert finished in 34:53.51at the highly competitive Stanford Invitational, placing 10th in her heat and 34th overall. Her time was a personal record by 53 seconds and the best time in the Sun Belt. “It’s been unbelievable,” said Aubert, a converted middle distance runner. “I never thought I’d PR twice in seven days.” For her effort at LSU, Aubert was named the SBC Women’s Outdoor Track Athlete of the Week. “I think the 5K does give me some speed for the 10K,” said Aubert, who will run her next 5K race in two weeks at the Vanderbilt Invitational. Though she won’t run her next 10K until the SBC outdoor championships next month, Aubert learned plenty of lessons at Stanford, where 18 of this season’s top 20 times nationally were posted. “My coach talked about getting out [fast],” Aubert said. “There were 30 girls in my heat, so if you don’t get out, you’re going to be playing catch-up the whole race.” Aubert said she settled in with a pack of runners that helped push her to a solid time. Late in the race, the pack slowly broke away from her. “The pack I was with most of the time came in at about 34:30,” said Aubert, whose time ranks 31st nationally. “In the last 2K, I just slowly fell off.” For only her second race, Aubert was thrilled with breaking a new barrier. “My goal was to break 35 [minutes], so I’m really happy,” she said. Oregon senior Jordan Hasay won the race in 32:46.68, and 14 other runners at the Stanford meet broke 34 minutes. The strong competition is something Aubert welcomes. “I get excited when that

MCC baseball team runs winning streak to 13 Nick Spagnola drove in two runs and had two stolen bases in McHenry County College’s baseball doubleheader sweep against Milwaukee Tech on Friday in Crystal Lake. It was the 13th consecutive win for the Scots (16-3). Zack Geib struck out five in a complete-game win in the first game, and Justin Gundlach struck out six to earn the victory in the second game.

ON CAMPUS Barry Bottino happens,” she said. “I don’t mind getting beat as long as I run a good time.”

CCAC standout Boyer: McHenry West grad Sarah Boyer was named Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week on Tuesday. A senior at NAIA Judson University in Elgin, Boyer went 4-0 in the previous week for the Eagles (21-5), including a five-inning no-hitter in a 15-0 win against Trinity International University. Boyer had 15 strikeouts in the win, surpassing the 500 career strikeout mark at Judson. In her 26 innings during the previous week, Boyer struck out 44 batters. She ranked 14th in the nation entering this week with 12.14 strikeouts a game. A day after no-hitting TIU, Boyer tossed a one-hitter, striking out 12, in a 6-0 win against Purdue University-North Central. For the season, Boyer is 9-3 with a 1.97 ERA. She has struck out 105 batters in 742/3 innings.

North Park’s Williams shines: Cary-Grove grad Kyle Williams, a senior outfielder at D-III North Park University in Chicago was honored Tuesday as the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin Hitter of the Week in baseball. In a three-game sweep of conference opponent Millikin, Williams batted .400. Williams’ best game of the series was a 4-for-6 effort with three runs, a triple and an RBI in a 10-4 victory March 29 in the opener of a doubleheader. Williams, who also played at McHenry County College, is batting .341 with 15RBIs this season for the Vikings (11-9), who are off to a 4-1 start in conference play. Soaring Flyers, Albano: Lewis University junior outfielder Ben Albano hit two home runs Tuesday in a doubleheader sweep of Wisconsin-Parkside to help the D-II Flyers extend their baseball winning streak to 10 games. Albano, a Jacobs grad, also doubled and drove in five runs on the day. For the season, he is batting .262 with a team-leading four homers and 31 total bases. Albano is second on the Flyers (16-3) with 15 runs scored and has 15 RBIs. • Barry Bottino writes a weekly column and a blog about local college athletes for the Northwest Herald.

Another close win for CL South baseball team NORTHWEST HERALD Crystal Lake South’s baseball team won its third one-run victory in the past four days with a 3-2 eight-inning win against Boylan on Friday in Rockford. The Gators went ahead with two runs in the top of the seventh. “We weren’t really getting anything together. I think part of it was the bus ride,” South coach Brian Bogda said of his team’s slow start. “Unfortunately, we weren’t able to close the door in the seventh.” Max Meitzler went 3 of 4 and had the game-winning RBI in the eighth and Ryan Wilkening had an RBI single to tie the score in the seventh for South. Also for the Gators (4-0), Mike House was 2 of 4.

Harvard 3, Alden-Hebron 2: At Harvard, Tim Talbert led a game-tying charge in the sixth inning with an RBI single for the Giants (2-2), but Harvard (2-3) came back in the seventh inning for the nonconference win behind relief pitcher Justin Nolen.

Matt Miller won at No. 1 singles for McHenry County College in a 6-3 loss to Elgin Community College in an Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference men’s tennis dual meet Friday in Crystal Lake. The Scots (2-2 overall, 1-2 ISCC) won two doubles matches – Dylan Clark and Matt Miller at No. 1 doubles and Spencer Irish Morrobel and Kevin Bottalla at No. 3.

BOTTOM LINE If everything goes to plan (well, our plan, at least), the Hawks will pick up 19 points

Prairie Ridge 6, Woodstock 3: At Woodstock, Kate Didier and Maddie Drain drove in two runs apiece, and Courtney Emricson fanned seven batters in an FVC crossover win for the Wolves (3-1). Hannah Jacobs drove in two on three hits for Woodstock (0-3).

Cary-Grove 14, Grayslake Central 0 (6 inn.): At Grayslake, Lindsay Efflandt helped her own two-hit complete-game win with a home run, and Lisa Semro and Sarah Leudo also went yard in the FVC crossover win for the Trojans (3-0).

Jacobs 11, Grayslake North 7: At Grayslake, Alyssa Lach had two doubles and a triple in four trips to the plate, and Jacquelyn Hengler went 3 for 5 in an FVC crossover win for the Golden Eagles (3-2).

Samantha McLean scored Erin Yazel, who was 2 for 3, for the lone run in the FVC crossover win. Sara Funn and Jennifer in the final 12 games of the regular season. That would give the Hawks 77 points in a lockout-shortened 48-game season, which would be incredible. It would equate to 131 points in a typical season. Keep in mind that the franchise record is 112. Is this too much to ask? Yes, probably. OK, make that

Tipping point: In his second inning of work, White Sox reliever Nate Jones surrendered a leadoff single to start the 10th inning and the Mariners took advantage. After a sacrifice bunt, Kendrys Morales doubled in the goahead run and Seattle added an insurance run on Jesus Montero’s two-out single. Tyler Flowers struck out with the bases loaded to end the game. On the mound: Left-hander Jose Quintana couldn’t get out of the fifth inning. Seven consecutive batters reached base before Quintana was finally pulled, but the damage was done. He gave up five runs in the inning and did not record an out. The Sox trailed 6-1 when he left.

At the plate: Home runs have been the Sox’s salvation. They hit their sixth and seventh homers of the season against Mariners starting pitcher Blake Beavan to fuel their rally. Alejandro De Aza’s two-run homer and Alex Rios’ solo home run both came in the Sox’s five-run fifth. Under the radar: Matt Lindstrom relieved Quintana and gave the Sox an opportunity to rally. He did not allow a hit in his 21/3 innings pitched, which matched his career high, and he struck out two. The Sox’s bullpen combined to pitch 122/3 scoreless innings to start the season until Nate Jones surrendered the go-ahead run in the 10th. – Meghan Montemurro

Sox’s Jones take loss, stays in for 2 innings • SOX Continued from page C1 Right-hander Matt Lindstrom, an offseason free agent signing, appeared in his second game of the season and didn’t allow a hit or walk in 21/3 innings while striking out two. Lindstrom matched his career high in innings pitched in a single outing, and his effectiveness allowed the Sox (2-2) to rally for four runs in the fourth. They eventually tied the game in the seventh. “I’m not afraid to use [Lindstrom] at any point from the sixth on,” Ventura said. “It just kind of depends on the situation you’re in and who’s in there.” Hard-throwing Nate Jones took the loss, his 97 mph fastball not enough to hold off the Mariners (3-2). Ventura opted to use Jones for two innings, keeping him in to start the 10th after retiring the Mariners in order the previous inning, highlighted by two strikeouts. Jones found himself in trouble immediately after allowing a single to the leadoff hitter, Franklin Gutierrez. Michael Saunders’ sacrifice bunt moved

(0-1) threw two wild pitches, hit a batter and had a fielding error in the fourth when he missed the bag in an attempt to cover first base. The right-hander gave up four runs, five hits and four walks in 42/3 innings. He struck out one. Feldman, who spent his first eight seasons with Texas, is 0-6 with a 6.85 ERA over his past nine starts – but his new teammates did little to help him offensively. In the first four games, the Cubs’ offense has managed just 16 hits and seven runs. Against the Braves, the top four spots in the batting order went a combined 1 for 14. The Cubs put just two runners in scoring position. “Nobody’s swinging the bats at all right now,” manager Dale Sveum said. “Somebody’s going to have to step up now and get hot. Hopefully it’s the whole team, but we don’t have a lot going offensively now.” Upton’s shot gave the Braves a 1-0 lead in the first. His sacrifice fly in the third drove in Andrelton Simmons to make it 2-0. Feldman could only blame himself for the second run. He issued a leadoff walk to Simmons, who stole second and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Minor’s one costly mistake came when Scott Hairston led off the fifth with a homer, his first, to make it 2-1.

ATLANTA – Scott Feldman knew he couldn’t afford to make many mistakes against the Atlanta Braves’ potent lineup. Unfortunately for Feldman, he was his own worst enemy. “That’s a tough lineup there, and when you’re behind in the count you can’t give in,” he said. “They bat- Next tled well and made me throw way too Cubs at Atmany pitches.” lanta, 6:10 p.m. Feldman’s com- today, WGN-TV, mand problems and AM-720 a sluggish offense were contributing factors in the Cubs’ 4-1 loss to Atlanta on Friday night.

Minor allowed one run and five hits in 71/3 innings. He walked none and struck out seven.

him into scoring position and Kendrys Morales capitalized on the next pitch for a RBI double. Jesus Montero added an insurance run with a two-out single that ultimately proved to be the game-winning run. Ventura could have turned to lefty Matt Thornton, who had been warming up earlier in the game, or closer Addison Reed. But Ventura, worried about a bullpen that was quickly running out of arms – four of his best relievers had already been used – decided to stick with Jones for an extra inning. Reed had been used twice in the first three games, both of which were save opportunities that he converted. “You’re getting a little thing out there; we used Hector [Thursday],” Ventura said. “[Jones] has been extended before, so he can go two innings. That’s nothing new for Nate.” • Meghan Montemurro covers the White Sox and Cubs for Shaw Media.

This time, Zito outdueled Jake Westbrook (0-1) in his season debut.

Marlins 7, Mets 5: At New York, Alex Sanabia won for the first time in more than two years and Miami gave Mike Redmond his first victo-

ry as a major league manager by beating New York.

Diamondbacks 3, Brewers 1: At Milwaukeee, Wade Miley and Kyle Lohse were locked in a pitching duel through six innings before Arizona spoiled Lohse’s debut with Milwaukee by scoring two runs on a wild pitch from reliever Michael Gonzalez in the seventh. Rockies 5, Padres 2: At Denver, Wilin Rosario and Dexter Fowler homered to back Jeff Francis as Colorado beat San Diego in a festive home opener at Coors Field.

Popular Rutgers AD Pernetti steps down By TOM CANAVAN The Associated Press NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – Rutgers’ coaching scandal spiraled deeper Friday, bringing down the popular athletic director and a school vice president while donors threatened to cut off their contributions to New Jersey’s largest public university. The day of mounting troubles for the school began with athletic director Tim Pernetti resigning over his failure to immediately fire Tim coach Mike Rice, who Pernetti was caught on video hitting, kicking and taunting players with anti-gay slurs at practice. The video was shown Tuesday on ESPN, prompting outrage nationwide and on campus, where the coach’s conduct was especially sensitive because of the 2010 suicide of a student who killed himself after his roommate used a webcam to record him kissing another man. Rice was fired by Pernetti on Wednesday, but the athletic director immediately came under criticism for only suspending and fining the coach after the video was brought to his attention four months ago. Pernetti said Friday he wanted to fire Rice on the spot but did not because the consensus

among school officials at the time was that it didn’t warrant dismissal. Rutgers President Robert Barchi came under harsh questioning from reporters at a news conference Friday over what he knew about the video months ago, but he got a nod of support from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the school’s board of governors. Barchi, who took office in September 2012, said he first saw the video only this week, but was aware it existed in late November when Pernetti gave him a summary of what was on it at the time. “This was a failure of process. I regret that I did not ask to see this video when Tim first told me of its existence,” Barchi said. “I want to apologize to the entire Rutgers community for the negative impact that this situation has had on Rutgers. “I also apologize to the LGBT community and all of us who share their values for the homophobic slurs shown on that video. I personally know how hurtful that language can be.” Two of Rutgers’ leading donors have threatened to cut their contributions in the wake of Pernetti’s resignation. Tom Mendiburu, whose High Point Solutions paid $6 million for the naming rights to the university’s football stadium, tweeted that he was concerned because he made the deal because of Pernetti.

Loyola-Cincy ’63 final changed color of game ATLANTA – If you tuned into the start of the 1963 NCAA championship between little Loyola of Chicago and mighty Cincinnati, it looked like few, if any, of the college basketball games you’d ever watched before. Seven of the 10 starters from the two teams were black. Fifty years later, one of the more revolutionary contests in sports has largely faded from memory. Ask any player at this year’s Final Four about the game that changed the color of college basketball and they’ll likely cite the 1966 finale, when tiny Texas Western, with its five black starters, upset all-white Kentucky. That’s because of the popularity of the book, “Glory Road,” and even more so the movie released in 2006, which detailed the exploits of Texas Western and its coach, the late Don Haskins. But if anything, the mood in the country was much more racially charged in 1963. That atmosphere provides the backdrop for “Ramblers,” a new book in which author Michael Lenehan pulls together all the disparate threads that produced Loyola’s serendipitous championship run. The previous fall, riots erupted at the University of Mississippi when a lone black man enrolled there, and the unwritten rule among college coaches was you could play one black on the road, two at home and three if you were way behind. “When I tell my kids those stories,” said Ron Miller, who became Loyola’s fourth black starter at the end of the 1962 season, “they think I’m exaggerating. “The night we played, none of us had a sense of what it meant. We’d run across some ugly scenes, playing in the South, but I grew up in New York City watching St. John’s and NYU, so I’d seen black players before and never thought much about it. But not long after we won, I went home for Easter break and so many people came by to congratulate me, my mom just left the door open. Then I went over to my cousin’s store. He said, ‘I’m really proud of you guys. I never thought I’d see so many black faces on a court all at the same time.’ “That was the first time I realized it was more than just another game, more even than a championship game. It’s nice to be able to look back now, from a distance, and think we helped a little, maybe gave some people an opportunity that wasn’t there prior to that.” Even easier to forget is what an upset Loyola’s 60-58 win was. Cincinnati was playing in its fifth straight Final Four under coach Ed Jucker, who had played four black starters the previous season. But after losing the first two of those with the great Oscar Robertson in charge, he changed from an up-tempo style to a more deliberate system and won backto-back championships – beating Ohio

VIEWS Jim Litke State both times – before running into the Ramblers. Cincinnati led 29-21 at the half after a miserable shooting performance from both teams, then 45-30 with 12:29 left. The Ramblers made one improbable shot to force overtime, then Vic Rouse rebounded a missed shot in the final seconds of overtime and carefully banked it off the glass for the game-winner. For all that excitement, Lenehan wasn’t looking for a basketball story when he stumbled across a flashback show about the Loyola team on public TV in Chicago. “Anybody who’s spent any time in the city knew about Loyola, but mostly it was a ‘Cinderella-type’ story. It wasn’t until the show that I realized there was a whole other dimension to it. A while later, I tried finding some books to follow up and there weren’t any,” he said. AP photo “The more research I did, the better it seemed to get. The story of how the Mississippi State team had to sneak out of the state in the dead of night – just to be able to play in the tournament – is one of the braver acts of defiance in the whole story.” All these years later, the ties that knotted the Ramblers together, uncomfortably at first, have become as strong as steel cable. The one unresolved question that still bounces back and forth between them is what drove their coach, the late George Ireland. “You could never be sure of his motives for anything,” recalled Johnny Egan, the point guard and lone white starter of the 1963 team. “In my mind, he was the guy most coaches think they are – a guy who wanted to win more than anything – and he eventually realized the only way to do that was to recruit black players aggressively.” Chicago embraced them, reluctantly at first, if only because college basketball was down the city’s list of sporting priorities. The NCAA championship TV broadcast was in only its first year of national syndication in 1963 and the game was shown on tape delay – after live telecasts of the Illinois and Indiana high school championships and a Blackhawks hockey game. By the time it ended, most of the town was fast asleep. “That might be one of the funniest stories I heard,” Lenehan said. “When Loyola went down by 15 points early in the second half, some guys apparently went from tavern to tavern making bets on the Ramblers.” • Jim Litke is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

Michigan’s Trey Burke and the rest of the Wolverines will try to solve Syracuse’s zone defense tonight in an NCAA tournament semifinal game in Atlanta.


Contrast of styles Running Wolverines face stingy Orange defense By PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press ATLANTA – Syracuse is brimming with confidence, largely because of its suffocating style when the other team has the ball. Next up, a guy who knows a thing or two about breaking down opposing defenses. Trey Burke, meet the Orange Crush. The Final Four semifinal between Syracuse and Burke’s Michigan team will present a clear contrast in styles tonight – the Orange, a veteran group that is perfectly content to settle into their octopus-like zone, vs. the brash young Wolverines, who love to run, run, run and have been compared to those Fab Five squads of the early 1990s. Clearly taking to heart the adage that offense wins fans but defense wins championships, Syracuse sounded like a team that fully expects to be playing in the title game at the Georgia Dome. “It’s going to take them a while to adjust to the zone,” junior guard Brandon Triche said Friday, a day when all four teams got a chance to practice in the cavernous, 70,000seat stadium that is normally home of the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons. The Michigan players quickly got wind of the comments coming

from Syracuse’s media session. “It sounds like cockiness,” said guard Tim Hardaway Jr., son of the former NBA star. “But it’s not going to come down to just talent or who has the biggest players. It’s going to come down to heart and passion.” Having a player such as Burke doesn’t hurt, either. The Associated Press player of the year already came up huge in the regionals, leading the Wolverines back from a 14-point deficit against Kansas with less than 7 minutes remaining. He knocked down a long 3-pointer at the end of regulation to tie the game, then finished off the upset of the top-seeded Jayhawks in overtime. But Burke has never played against a defense quite like this. “We’ve just got to try to find different ways to attack the zone,” the sophomore guard said. “They play a really good 2-3. It’s tough. We’ve got to make sure we knock down uncontested 3s.” The zone is usually viewed as more of a passive defense. Not the way Syracuse plays it. Coach Jim Boeheim has assembled a bunch of guys with impressive size and surprising quickness. When they’re all working together – waving those long arms and moving back and forth in unison, like the ocean lapping at the shore – it can be tough to get an open jumper

and nearly impossible to work the ball inside. Syracuse (30-9) has taken its trademark D to new levels of stinginess in the NCAA tournament. The Orange have surrendered a paltry 45.75 points a game, holding Montana (34), top-seeded Indiana (50) and Marquette (39) to their lowest scoring totals of the season. Overall, Syracuse’s four tournament opponents have combined to shoot 28.9 percent from field (61 of 211) and 15.4 percent from 3-point range (14 of 91). None of those teams had a player like Burke. That doesn’t seem to matter to Syracuse. “It’s tough to go against our zone when you’ve never seen it before,” forward C.J. Fair said. “We want to force him to do some things he’s not done before.” Michigan (30-7) prefers to get in the open court as much as possible, a style that is even more advantageous against a team such as Syracuse, which has a size advantage at almost every position. The Wolverines are averaging 75.5 points a game on the season, even more (78.8) in their four NCAA games. Last weekend, after stunning Kansas, they romped past one of the nation’s best defensive teams, beating Florida, 79-59, in the regional final.


Big, bad Louisville people’s choice Ware’s injury brings sympathy to Cardinals By NANCY ARMOUR The Associated Press ATLANTA – Louisville already had the bigger names, the better team and some unfinished business after coming up short in last year’s Final Four. All Wichita State had was the cute-and-cuddly underdog angle. Now the Shockers don’t even have that. Kevin Ware is everybody’s favorite player since he broke his leg in gruesome fashion last weekend yet summoned the strength to encourage his teammates, and having him at the Final Four has given the top-seeded Cardinals (33-5) added motivation to claim the title that eluded them last year. “We really want it, especially since we’re back here for a second year,” Louisville forward Wayne Blackshear said Friday. “With Kevin going down, especially the way he did, it’s just making us play harder.” Louisville plays Wichita State (30-8) in the first national semifinal tonight. The Cardinals are 10½-point favorites. Wichita State has one player (Carl Hall) who salvaged his career after working in a light bulb facto-

ry and two more (Ron Baker and Malcolm Armstead) who paid their way to come to school and started on the team as walk-ons. Its coach has invited fans into the locker room after big wins. Yes, this is a school with all the makings of a team the entire country could get behind. Problem is, in this case, Louisville and Ware are already tugging on America’s heart Kevin Ware strings. “I’m just glad to know Kevin Ware now even more because he’s probably the most famous person I know,” Peyton Siva cracked. “You know, when you have Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama call you, it’s pretty good to say you know that person.” Louisville’s trip to last year’s Final Four was something of a surprise, coming after the Cardinals skidded into the Big East tournament just two games over .500. So when they got to the NCAA tourney and finally got bounced by archrival and top-ranked Kentucky in the national semifinals, it wasn’t a shock. Or a huge disappointment. This year, however, the Cardinals – and everyone else – expect Louisville to win it all. “I think that’s the one difference

from last year to this year,” Chane Behanan said. “Last year, I don’t want to say it was a fluke because we were a great basketball team. This year is just totally different. We have the No. 1 seed. It’s a lot of pressure with everyone expecting us to win.” Until Ware got hurt, the Cardinals seemed immune to the pressure and the expectations, to say nothing of letdowns. They won their first four NCAA tournament games by an average of almost 22 points. They limited opponents to 59 points and 42 percent shooting while harrassing them into almost 18 turnovers. Russ Smith was named Most Outstanding Player of the Midwest Regional after averaging 26 points in the first four games and tying an NCAA record with eight steals against North Carolina A&T. Gorgui Dieng has 10 blocks. But losing Ware was big. He was the main substitute – the only substitute, really – for Smith and Peyton Siva, the high-octane guards who are the key not only to Louisville’s suffocating press but its offense, too. “Our players totally understand the challenge that lies ahead with this Wichita State team,” coach Rick Pitino said. “We understand with Kevin out that we not only have to play very hard, we have to play very, very smart.”

Robinson, Deng rally Bulls ball from Nikola Vucevic, Robinson missed a 17-footer with 25 seconds left. Vucevic grabbed the rebound, and the Magic called time. With one more chance left, though, they gave it up again. This time, a driving Udrih threw a bad pass that Jimmy Butler recovered in the corner for the Bulls with about 10 seconds left. “They were trying to blitz me, especially from the outside, so that’s why I attacked the other side,” Udrih said. “I tried to spin back and I fell down. Things happen.” The Magic still had a foul to give and needed to commit two quick ones to get another chance. The Bulls kept the ball moving, though, and Orlando couldn’t stop the clock until there were 0.2 seconds left, preserving the win for the Bulls. “Great lesson for us,” Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said. The fifth-place Bulls moved within a game of Brooklyn for the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference and home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, even though they again were missing five key players. Richard Hamilton (back), Taj Gibson (sprained left knee), Joakim Noah (plantar fasciitis in his right foot), and Marco Belinelli (abdominal strain) all remained sidelined along with star Derrick Rose.

By ANDREW SELIGMAN The Associated Press CHICAGO – The only shots Nate Robinson fears are the kind he takes at the doctor’s office. He doesn’t like needles. He welcomes crunch time. Robinson showed no fear down the stretch, scoring 12 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter, and Luol Deng finished with 19 after a slow start to lead the Bulls to an 8786 victory over the Orlando Magic on Friday night. Robinson, who hit the go-ahead basket the previous night in a twopoint win at Brooklyn, came up big down the stretch, offsetting a season-high 27 points by Orlando’s Beno Udrih. Robinson scored nine points during an 18-4 run that turned a five-point deficit into an 87-78 lead. Deng hit two 3-pointers during that stretch, and Robinson capped it with a long jumper as he crashed to the floor with 3:51 left. The Bulls did not score again, but they managed to pull this one out, anyway, sending the Magic to their 12th loss in 13 games. “I’m not afraid to fail,” Robinson said. “You’re going to have to fail a lot to succeed in this game. You can’t be afraid to take that shot. And you can’t be afraid to miss it or make it.”

The Bulls’ Luol Deng drives between the Magic’s Beno Udrih (front) and Tobias Harris during the first half Friday at the United Center. So when was the last time he was afraid of a shot? Robinson smiled. “Probably the last time I’ve been to the doctor,” he said, laughing. “Probably never. I’m never afraid. That’s something that my father installed in me young – never be afraid to fail or succeed.” Orlando was within one after Robinson lost his dribble and DeQuan Jones broke the other way for a dunk with 1:33 remaining. Deng then missed on a drive, and after Carlos Boozer stole the

Stocks close lower after weak jobs report

Douglas Pekarek, owner of Tootsies


NEW YORK – Stocks closed lower on Wall Street Friday after the U.S. government reported a sharp slowdown in hiring last month. The Labor Department said hiring was the weakest in nine months. The Dow Jones industrial average ended down 40 points at 14,565, a loss of 0.3 percent. It had been down as much as 171 points in the early going. The Dow ended flat for the week. The Standard & Poor’s 500 fell six points, or 0.4 percent, to 1,553. The Nasdaq fell 21 points, or 0.7 percent, to 3,203. The S&P had it worst week this year, and the Dow Jones Transportation Average had its worst week since September. Slightly more stocks fell than rose on the New York Stock Exchange. Volume was thinner than average at 3.4 billion shares.

Sarah Nader –

Douglas Pekarek, owner of Tootsies, talks with employee Martyna Kluka of Crystal Lake while working at his store in the Ice House Mall in downtown Barrington. The store specializes in shoes for children and women.

A shoe-in Tootsies adds women’s footwear to children’s line By LINDSAY WEBER BARRINGTON – In 1976, Douglas Pekarek “accidentally” got into the shoe business. At the time, Pekarek took notice of what was going on at former retail chain Thom McAn and thought it was exciting. This so-called accident turned into a career that has spanned nearly 40 years and is still going strong. In November 2003, after working as a children’s shoe buyer, Pekarek bought Young Tootsies, a children’s shoe store in conjunction with women’s shoe store Tootsies which closed as a result of the retirement of owner Nick Fletcher. Pekarek’s Barrington location offered a variety of boys and girls shoes. In November 2012, Pekarek reintroduced women’s shoes at his location and on March 7 of this year, Tootsies was reborn with a grand reopening. “We try hard to be your hometown store,” said Pekarek of Algonquin. “We’ll keep your child’s shopping history so you can come in with or without them and still be able to get their needed size, even if it may have gone up.” Now operating fully under the name Tootsies from the 3,000-square-foot location, Pekarek offers American and European brands for babies, children and women in a variety of styles and colors from sneakers to formalwear to the unusual. Tootsies has women’s shoes made from tilapia skin and recycled newspaper and girls shoes that come with matching hair ribbons. “We’ll shop the world for you, so you don’t have to,” said Pekarek. “We’ve got what you won’t find at DSW and we have prices that work for your pocket book.” Pekarek said the shoe world has changed dramatically since his initial venture into the business with the commonality now-a-days of what he calls the “throwaway” shoe. “Shoes used to be made out of really nice leather that you would repair

Pekarek said he does not have plans to venture into men’s shoes, but will continue to provide the best product and service for his women and children’s customers. “We make sure the right product goes on your feet.

Consumer borrowing up $18.2B in February WASHINGTON – Americans borrowed more in February to buy cars and attend school, but were more careful with their credit cards. The Federal Reserve said Friday that consumer borrowing rose $18.2 billion in February from January. That’s up from a gain of $12.7 billion in the previous month. The increase brought total borrowing to a seasonally adjusted $2.8 trillion. That’s up from $2.78 trillion in January and a new record. Nearly all of the gains were in a category that covers student and auto loans. That grew by $17.6 billion, up from $11.1 billion in January. Consumers stayed cautious with their credit card debt in February. That category increased just $533 million after a gain of $1.7 billion in January. The credit report doesn’t separate auto loans from student loans. But according to quarterly data compiled by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, student loan debt has been the biggest driver of borrowing since the recession ended in June 2009. It reached $966 billion in last year’s fourth quarter, up $10 billion from the third quarter. On the other hand, consumers have been more reluctant to run up big credit card bills since the recession ended. Credit card debt remains 17.2 percent below the peak set in June 2008. Analysts believe consumers will stay cautious with their plastic this year, largely because of the tax increase. In January, Social Security taxes rose on nearly all Americans who draw a paycheck. The increase leaves a person earning $50,000 with about $1,000 less to spend in 2013.

New visitor ID policy at Centegra hospitals NORTHWEST HERALD CRYSTAL LAKE – Centegra Health System will implement a new visitor identification policy beginning April 15. The policy states that visitors to any Centegra hospital must check in at the guest services desk to receive a visitor pass and visibly display the pass at all times while in the hospital. “The new policy encourages the healing and well-being of patients. It also sets forth best practice guidelines and expectations for patients’ visitors to facilitate a safe, restful and quiet environment,” said Mike Buchanan, director of security and safety at Centegra Health System. Visitors are encouraged to promote the healing and well-being of patients and help ensure that patients experience a safe, restful and quiet stay. Regular visiting hours are from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week, with quiet time from 2

to 4 p.m. Quiet time is an opportunity each day to support a critical period of rest for patients. Studies show that a quiet hospital environment encourages better rest and recovery, resulting in shorter hospital stays, faster healing and better sleep and rest after discharge. During the quiet time hours of 2 to 4 p.m., main hallways doors will be closed, lights will be dimmed and activities related to care will be minimized. Visitors are encouraged to respect quiet time and avoid visitation during these hours. If visitation must occur, visitors should go to the cafeteria or other common area until quiet time is over, or if someone must stay with a patient, keep all noise and activity to a minimum. Upon arrival, all visitors must check-in at the guest services desk located in the main hospital lobby and obtain a blue visitor pass. The visitor pass must be worn and be visible to others at all times. After-hours visiting will be allowed under

certain limited circumstances at the discretion of nursing leadership. “Please do not be offended if a pass is not visible and someone is asked if he or she needs assistance,” Buchanan said. All children 15 years and under must be in the company of a responsible adult and may not be left unattended. Children under the age of 12 may only visit a patient in the Family Birthing Center if they are siblings of the newborn and do not have obvious signs of illness. Those who are not completely healthy, show signs of an illness, or have been exposed to a communicable disease, are asked to postpone visiting until symptoms subside. “Please help the healing process for all patients by keeping noise levels low, allowing patients in the vicinity to rest,” Buchanan said. Questions or concerns regarding visitation should be reported to guest services in the main lobby or the emergency department.

Economy adds 88K jobs, rate drops to 7.6 percent By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON – U.S. employers added just 88,000 jobs in March, the fewest in nine months and a sharp retreat after a period of strong hiring. The slowdown may signal that the economy is heading into a weak spring. The Labor Department said Friday that the unemployment rate dipped to 7.6 percent, the lowest in four years, from 7.7 percent. But the rate fell only because more people stopped looking for work. People who are out of work are no longer counted as unemployed once they stop looking for a job. The percentage of Americans working or looking for jobs fell to 63.3 percent in March, the lowest such figure in nearly 34 years. March’s job gains were less than half the average of the previous six months, when the economy added an average of 196,000 jobs a month. The government said hiring was even stronger in January and February than previously

estimated. January’s job growth was revised up from 119,000 to 148,000. February’s was revised from 236,000 to 268,000. Several industries cut back sharply on hiring in March. Retailers cut 24,000 jobs after averaging 32,000 in the previous three months. Manufacturers cut 3,000 jobs after adding 19,000 the previous month. Financial services shed 2,000. Average hourly pay rose a penny, the smallest gain in five months. Average pay is just 1.8 percent higher than a year earlier, trailing the pace of inflation, which rose 2 percent in the past 12 months. “This is not a good report through and through,” Dan Greenhaus, chief economic strategist at brokerage firm BTIG, said in a note to clients. Economists had hoped that the bigger pay increases in recent months would continue and boost Americans’ ability to spend. Some economists said they expect a slowdown this spring, though not as severe as in the past three years.

MARENGO – Marengo’s longtime butcher is ready to give his hands a rest. Rodger Brandt, the 70-yearold owner of Wayne’s Country Market, is getting ready to retire after working at the meat market for nearly six decades. Wayne’s Country Market seems from a bygone era. Brandt knows many customers by name and order. Indeed, customer service is a hallmark of his business. “Wayne’s is an icon,” said Randy Hauschildt, chairman of the Marengo-Union Chamber of Commerce Board and manager of BMO Harris Bank in Marengo. “Its reputation in the community is superb. [Brandt] knows his customers Monica Maschak – and the people love him.” Owner Rodger Brandt weighs ground meat for a customer at Wayne’s Country Market in Marengo.

U.S. trade deficit narrows to $43B The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The U.S. trade deficit unexpectedly narrowed in February as exports climbed close to an alltime high and the volume of imported crude oil fell to the lowest level in 17 years. The gap between exports and imports shrank to $43 billion in February, down 3.4 percent from January’s revised $44.5 billion, the Commerce Department said Friday. It was the smallest trade imbalance since December when the gap had declined to $38.1 billion, the lowest point in nearly three years. Exports rose 0.8 percent to $186 billion, close to the record high set in December. Stronger exports of U.S. energy products and autos offset declines in sales of airplanes and farm equipment. Imports were flat at $228.9 billion with the volume of

crude oil falling to the lowest point since March 1996. The politically sensitive deficit with China shrank to $23.4 billion, the lowest point in 11 months. Exports to the European Union were down 0.9 percent in February, compared to January, reflecting continued economic weakness as that region struggles with a recession triggered by a debt crisis. Through the first two months of this year, the U.S. deficit is running at an annual rate of $524.5 billion, down slightly from last year’s $539.5 billion imbalance. Economists expect the deficit this year will narrow slightly, in part because of continued gains in U.S. energy exports. A narrower trade gap boosts growth because it means U.S. companies are earning more from overseas sales while U.S. consumers and businesses are spending less on foreign products.

Victoria Beckham, Posh Spice of the Spice Girls and wife of soccer star David Beckham, said, “I like a man who can be a real friend, has a good sense of humor, a good pair of shoes and a healthy gold card.” There are two words in that sentence that are very important for bridge experts: card and sense. Experts are born with card sense, which is an understanding that because a player did something, it means that he has or has not got a particular holding in that suit. How would a South with card sense handle this deal? He is in three notrump. West leads the spade four, dummy plays the three, and East puts in his jack. What should declarer do? When North tables his dummy, he expects the contract to make easily. However, many a declarer would go down. He would understandably take the irst trick, play a club to the king, return to his hand with a diamond, and lead a club to dummy’s jack. Here, East would win with his queen and shift to a heart (best). Suppose South takes the second heart. If he then runs diamonds, he

squeezes East. But declarer probably tries the clubs, after which he cannot recover. Instead, South should try for these nine winners: two spades, one heart, four diamonds and two clubs. But how should he play the spades? Go back to trick one. East’s card was the jack. When third hand is playing the highest card so far in the trick, he plays the bottom of equal cards. So West must have the spade 10. After taking the irst trick, South immediately leads a spade to dummy’s eight. When it pulls out the king, declarer has his nine tricks.

TODAY - Your aspirations will be elevated to new heights in the year ahead. It could mean a lot of work in a few cases, but the rewards could be commensurate. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The more complicated an assignment is, the more pride you’ll take in fulfilling it. You’ll welcome challenges that would make others blanch. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- When you give your word that you’ll do something for another, it’s an ironclad commitment. Reliability is one of your more admirable traits. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Participating in one of your favorite activities with some old friends will bring you considerable pleasure. It’ll be like wearing a pair of favorite shoes. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You won’t have to bulldoze your way through a critical development, but you will have to be persistent and unflagging in your aims. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Some kind of special knowledge, skill or know-how that you’ve acquired over a long period of time will be put to good use. It’s likely to gain you much admiration from your peers. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Although you will make a contribution to an endeavor, conditions are somewhat unusual in that you could benefit more from others’ efforts than from your own. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Events will help further solidify a strong relationship of long standing. Chances are it will involve someone whom you already consider to be one of your closest friends. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You have the ability to bring order and balance into the life of another through a personal intervention. You’ll make your own determination as to how and when your help is required. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Some of your best opportunities will develop through social contacts. You aren’t likely to intentionally use anybody, things will just happen of their own accord. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Certain changes are likely to occur that will prove to be of material benefit. The first shift in your circumstances is likely to take place today. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- The light touch you can sometimes put on life’s serious problems will be a welcome tonic for those troubled souls who cross your path. All will be appreciative. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- This could be a good time for a shopping excursion. You’ll have a shrewd eye for spotting a bargain and will be much more sensible about the purchases you make.
