Ill. transit boards in jeopardy Two bills aim to strip salaries, merge agencies By KEVIN P. CRAVER kcraver@shawmedia.com Bills aimed at reforming Chicago-area mass transit boards, and eliminating one outright, are working their way through the General Assembly. House Bill 140, which cleared Friday on a 106-0 vote, seeks to strip health insurance and pension benefits from future appointees to the Regional Transportation Authority, Metra, Pace and the Chicago Transit Authority. The bill is now in the Senate, which could vote as early as today on a bill aimed at merging the RTA with the lesser-known Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning. The original language of House Bill 140 also stripped appointees of their salaries,

Chaos, blood stain runners’ biggest race

Local residents describe chaos after explosions By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com For 90 frantic minutes Monday afternoon, Gregg Sierminski and his wife wandered through the chaos, searching for their daughter, Rachel, who finished the Boston Marathon a half-hour before two explosions near the finish line killed three people and injured more than 100 others. Rachel Sierminski, a member of Marian Central’s 1998 state championship cross country team, was running the famed Boston course for the first time. Despite knowing she had finished, Siermins-

ki, who lives in McHenry and works as a dentist in Wonder Lake, was forced to deal with uncertainty while he and his wife continued their search for their daughter. Initially, their search was unsuccessful as they got lost in the congestion that followed the two explosions. They heard the blasts from a few hundred yards away and finally located Rachel an hour and a half after she finished. “You figure she’s OK, but you just don’t know,” Sierminski said Monday night. “The marathon people were

GENERAL INFORMATION: 815-459-4040

When men push the wimp factor I freely admit it. When it comes to being in pain or being sick, compared with women, we men are wimps. I used to think this was because women were designed to better tolerate pain and had a higher pain threshold, but recent scientific studies have shown the opposite: Researchers now say women have a lower pain threshold and tolerance. In other words, a woman’s Pain-o-Meter is more sensitive and more intense than a man’s. Our male ego does not reflect well in these findings. We used to be able to say, “Honey, you don’t understand. I have man pain.” Now that we know the painful truth, our wimpiness is even more pathetic. Our amazing wives have become even more amazing as we contemplate how incredibly manly they can be as they tolerate sickness and pain. Take the stomach flu, for example. Recently I had a bout with it. As I lay in bed with my wife/nurse sitting faithfully beside me, it was all I could do to summon up the will to make one more trip to the bathroom. “Mike, do you need to go again?”

8LOTTERY

JUST HUMOR ME Michael Penkava she compassionately asked. “Honey … is that you?” I whispered pitiably. Somehow I survived that experience. But when my wife later got the flu, it was a completely different story. She doggedly marched back and forth to the bathroom like a firefighter to a fire. In between trips, she cleaned the bathroom, straightened up the bed, and I believe she also did three loads of laundry. This in comparison with me, as I could not even reach the handle to flush, crawled my way back to the bedroom and had to be lifted by the “weaker sex” into bed, all the while mumbling, “Honey … is that you?” I can’t even fathom how women tolerate childbirth. I had previously thought they had this special built-in extra strength gender-specific pain reducer that kicked in for times like that. Thus, it was easy for us men

to say, “Honey, just read a book or something. It’s OK.” Now I can only imagine how great and powerful they really are. In contemplating childbirth, I cannot envision a male counterpart of this experience. The only thing that even comes remotely close is our annual prostate exam. And that experience has us men spontaneously Lamaze breathing just anticipating hearing the dreaded words, “Drop your pants.” Geesh. Heaven forbid if we men were the childbearers of the species. Someone once said that if men could give birth, there would be a cure for that by now. That or on-demand C-sections. And don’t even mention surgeries. After seeing my wife bravely endure four births, I had to buck up for ACL reconstruction surgery. But my wretched pitifulness surfaced as I recovered at home. I remember a conundrum I had in the bathroom. “Honey, could you help me?” I called through the bathroom door. “What do you need, dear?” “I can’t seem to pull up my under-

wear.” “Honey … is that you?” “Come on … I’m serious … I need help!” Yep, I can see the headlines now … “Hockey player has Fruit of the Loom dilemma as he recuperates from lower body injury.” So I want to officially concede bragging rights on this matter to our wives. How do they do it? They feel pain sooner and stronger, yet they handle it with strength and grace. On the other hand, we men have a higher threshold and a greater capacity for tolerance, and yet we crumble like soda crackers in Wonder Woman’s fist. OK. We’re wimps. But I say give a woman a prostate gland, and we’ll see how brave she is.

Phelps disputes report’s ‘anonymous allegations’ By JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – Ex-Congressman David Phelps did “little work” as assistant secretary at the Illinois Department of Transportation other than to take actions that entailed “misconduct and abuse,” according to an investigative report released Monday. The Office of the Executive Inspector General found Phelps impermissibly met with job candidates and in-

terfered with hiring and the favorable ranking of contractors. The probe also found that Danny Clayton, assistant to an IDOT regional engineer, abused work time and altered a job posting to favor his son. IDOT fired Clayton in January 2011 and demanded $10,500 in wage reimbursement. Phelps fired back that his comments to investigators were mischaracterized, that he was pegged with wrongdoing by anonymous allegations and that he had no chance to

rebut the charges, from which his attorney unsuccessfully sought to redact his name. Questions about hiring practices have haunted state officials for a decade, and while Phelps and Clayton were hired under disgraced former Gov. Rod Blagojevich, their misconduct, according to Inspector General Ricardo Mesa’s report, occurred in 2009 and 2010 after Gov. Pat Quinn took over. Meza published a blistering report in November about the Quinn administra-

tion’s hiring improprieties at the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. The inspector general’s IDOT report also named two other employees – including Clayton’s former supervisor – and the owner of a firm that does IDOT work for violating state law prohibiting state employees soliciting or accepting gifts from vendors. The supervisor was counseled and the other employee served a twoweek suspension. Phelps, hired in 2003 after

Gun background bill in jeopardy Bipartisan Senate proposal vote likely to come later this week By ALAN FRAM The Associated Press WASHINGTON – A bipartisan proposal to expand background checks to more gun buyers seemed in jeopardy Monday as a growing number of Republican senators expressed opposition to the proposal, perhaps enough to derail it. But there was plenty of time for lobbying and deal-making to affect the outcome, which remained uncertain. The White House said President Barack Obama was calling lawmakers, as both sides hunted support for a nail-biting showdown. As of Monday evening, some senators were saying the vote now appeared likely late this week, rather than midweek as top Democrats have hoped. Such a delay would give both sides more time to find support. “The game hasn’t even started yet, let alone over,” said Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., who reached a background check compromise last week with Sen. Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., on which the Senate was preparing to vote. At stake is what has become the heart of this year’s gun control drive in response to December’s killing of children and staff at an elementa-

The number of Republican senators who might back expanded background checks is now dwindling, threatening a bipartisan effort to subject more gun buyers to the checks. ry school in Newtown, Conn. Supporters consider a broadening of the buyers subjected to background checks to be the most effective step lawmakers can take, and Obama urged near universal checks in the plan he unveiled in January. Sixteen Republicans voted last week to reject an effort by conservatives that would have blocked the Senate from even considering a broad bill restricting firearms. With

that debate underway, Democrats hope to win enough supporters from this group to gain passage of the first amendment to that bill – the compromise between Manchin and Toomey, which expands background checks but less broadly than Obama has wanted. By Monday evening, eight Republican senators from that group said they would oppose the Manchin-Toomey plan and two were leaning

against it. Combined with the 31 senators who voted against debating the overall gun bill last week, that would bring potential opponents of expanding background checks to 41 – just enough votes to block the Senate from considering the compromise. “I’m not going to vote for it. It’s not the right thing to do,” said Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., who was among the 16 who voted last week to allow the debate to begin.

For most people, tax deadline not so final By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Here’s a little secret for all you procrastinators on tax day: The Internal Revenue Service doesn’t like to talk about it, but as long as you don’t owe any additional taxes, there is no penalty for filing a few days late. The late filing penalty is usually 5 percent of the unpaid taxes for each month – or part of a month – a return is late. That can add up quickly if you owe additional taxes. But what if the unpaid taxes are zero? Five percent of zero is ... zero. However, if you wait more than three years to file, you forfeit your refund. So maybe

it’s better to file by Monday, after all. Besides, if you’re getting a refund, why wait? The IRS got a late start on tax season this year, thanks to a last-minute tax law passed by Congress on Jan. 1. But the deadline for filing returns didn’t change, so if you owe money, it’s time to settle up with the government. In all, the IRS expects to process 149 million returns from individuals this year, including returns from people who file for 6-month extensions. About a quarter of returns are usually filed in the last three weeks before tax day. This year the IRS received more than 10 million electronically filed returns from Friday through Sunday.

By the numbers A look at this year’s filing season, through April 5: n Returns filed so far: 96.6 million n Share of taxpayers getting a refund: 81 percent n Total amount of refunds issued so far: $214 billion n Average refund: $2,755 n Average refund in 2012: $2,794 n The rise of computers: 89 percent of returns have been filed electronically. n Clinging to the past: That leaves 11 percent still filing paper returns. n These people are getting a refund: 29 percent of Americans in a Pew Research Center poll

he lost re-election, was excoriated in the report, which included his inability to explain to Meza’s investigators what his work day entailed other than meeting with “lots of people.” Despite his title, the IDOT secretary at the time, Quinn appointee Gary Hannig, said Phelps was not part of the management team. “It appears that Mr. Phelps does little work,” the report said. “This coupled with the ... investigative findings, seemingly indicates that the prima-

ry actions which Mr. Phelps undertakes in an official capacity are those that constitute misconduct and abuse of his position.” The report said Phelps, who made $128,000, acknowledged he met with job candidates or a 2009 summer hiring program, including those who had supported him in congressional campaigns. According to the report, he told employees doing the hiring whom he favored for jobs because he wanted to help “good people.”

8BRIEFS Topinka: Unpaid bills waste taxpayer money PEORIA – Taxpayer money is being “flushed away” on late payments to vendors, according to Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka. If the state doesn’t pay its bills after 90 days, private vendors become eligible for interest, which accumulates monthly until bills are paid. Topinka said the payments are another way taxpayers are paying for years of financial mismanagement. The Peoria Journal Star reported that outstanding bills totaled roughly $6 billion last week. Last year, $86.3 million went to cover interest owed on late payments.

Price of gold plunges in biggest 1-day drop NEW YORK – The shine has come off the gold market. The price of gold logged its biggest one-day decline in more than 30 years Monday, tumbling $140.30, or 9 percent, to $1,361. While gold has been gradually falling since hitting a peak of $1,900 in August 2011, the sell-off accelerated late last week. A slowdown in inflation, combined with speculation the Federal Reserve is considering winding down its stimulus program, prompted investors to sell Friday. Reports that Cyprus may sell some of its gold reserves to pay off its debts, following its bailout, also rattled the market. The selling then intensified Monday as speculators dumped their holdings.

Officials: Maine hermit attracts marriage offer PORTLAND, Maine – High bail is appropriate to prevent the exploitation of a Maine man who has attracted a

marriage proposal and a stranger’s offer to bail him out since his high-profile arrest for theft and burglary after living in the woods for nearly three decades, a prosecutor said Monday. Bail for Christopher Knight was raised from $5,000 to $250,000 Sunday after Maine State Police filed two additional burglary and theft charges against him. He now faces four charges in all, but police said he’s admitted to hundreds of burglaries over the years to obtain supplies for his makeshift camp in the woods near North Pond in the central Maine town of Rome.

8WORLD BRIEFS Fatal bomb blasts come week before Iraq vote BAGHDAD – Insurgents in Iraq deployed a series of car bombs as part of highly coordinated attacks that cut across a wide swath of the country Monday, killing at least 55 on the deadliest day in nearly a month. The assault bore the hallmarks of a resurgent al-Qaida in Iraq and appeared aimed at sowing fear days before the first elections since U.S. troops withdrew.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but coordinated attacks are a favorite tactic of al-Qaida’s Iraq branch.

After weeks of N. Korean fury, calm on key holiday PYONGYANG, North Korea – North Koreans celebrated the birthday of their first leader Monday by dancing in plazas and snacking on peanuts, with little hint of the fiery language that has kept the international

community fearful that a missile launch may be imminent. Pyongyang fired off a rocket ahead of the last anniversary of Kim Il Sung’s birth – the centennial – but this time the day was simply the start of a two-day holiday for Pyongyang residents who spilled into the streets. Girls in red and pink jackets skipped along streets festooned with celebratory banners and flags.

Victims conscious, but ‘very dazed’ • BOSTON Continued from page A1 anonymity because the investigation was still unfolding said the attack was being treated as an act of terrorism. President Barack Obama vowed that those responsible will “feel the full weight of justice.” As many as two unexploded bombs also were found near the end of the 26.2-mile course in what appeared to be a well-coordinated attack, but they were safely disarmed, according to a senior U.S. intelligence official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the investigation. The fiery twin blasts took place about 10 seconds and about 100 yards apart, knocking spectators and at least one runner off their feet, shattering windows and sending dense plumes of smoke rising over the street and through the fluttering national flags lining the route. Blood stained the pavement, and huge shards were missing from window panes as high as

three stories. “They just started bringing people in with no limbs,” said runner Tim Davey of Richmond, Va. He said he and his wife, Lisa, tried to shield their children’s eyes from the gruesome scene inside a medical tent that had been set up to care for fatigued runners, but “they saw a lot.” “They just kept filling up with more and more casualties,” Lisa Davey said. “Most everybody was conscious. They were very dazed.” As the FBI took charge of the investigation, authorities shed no light on a motive or who may have carried out the bombings, and police said they had no suspects in custody. Officials in Washington said there was no immediate claim of responsibility. Police said three people were killed. An 8-year-old boy was among the dead, according to a person who talked to a friend of the family and spoke on condition of anonymity. Hospitals reported at least 144 people injured, at least 17 of them critically. The victims’ injuries included bro-

ken bones, shrapnel wounds and ruptured eardrums. At Massachusetts General Hospital, Alisdair Conn, chief of emergency services, said: “This is something I’ve never seen in my 25 years here ... this amount of carnage in the civilian population. This is what we expect from war.” Some 23,000 runners took part in the race, one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious marathons. One of Boston’s biggest annual events, the race winds up near Copley Square, not far from the landmark Prudential Center and the Boston Public Library. It is held on Patriots Day, which commemorates the first battles of the American Revolution, at Concord and Lexington in 1775. Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis asked people to stay indoors or go back to their hotel rooms and avoid crowds as bomb squads methodically checked parcels and bags left along the race route. He said investigators didn’t know whether the bombs were hidden in mailboxes or trash cans.

College governing board to hold special meeting today Voice your opinion

• MCC Continued from page A1 Smith’s current contract was not made available to the Northwest Herald, but a copy was requested Monday through the Freedom of Information Act. The college called a special meeting today in which trustees will vote on continuing Smith’s contract through 2015. Board Chairwoman Mary Miller called the meeting but did not return calls for comment. Today’s meeting will be Vicky Smith, one of the last for a lame-duck president board before of McHenry three newly County elected trustCollege ees take office. Concerned citizens and one sitting trustee have urged the board not to vote until the new trustees are seated. They will be sworn in April 25, after the final meeting of the outgoing board. “[Smith’s contract is] already in place through June [2014], and it seems to me, beyond that period should be determined by the trustees being seated this month, with whom she will be working those two years,” Trustee Ron Parrish has said. But the question remains: Who is responsible for extend-

ing Smith’s contract – those who already have completed the detailed evaluation of her performance, or those who will be working with her through the duration of the agreement? The responsible thing to do, Kisser argued, is leave the vote to the trustees who have gone through the evaluation process, which started in March. A vote on her contract by the newcomers is unfair to Smith because the new trustees would have to rely on “cursory information” to make an important decision, she said. “How can they know just coming on the board?” Kisser asked. “They are not qualified to evaluate the president [yet] and don’t have enough familiarity with [the board’s evaluations].” The meeting has some questioning whether the college is in violation of the Open Meetings Act. The agenda was made public late Friday. College officials say it was posted on the school’s website by 4:30 p.m., but the Northwest Herald didn’t receive an email notification until an hour later.

A clerical error left the public comment portion off the initial agenda. The error was corrected and a new agenda – one allowing time for public comment – was posted. Other than the agenda, there is no further information made public nor will there be before the meeting, college officials said. The college typically makes its board packet available to the public, although it’s not required to do so. Information shared with the board before the meeting also was the subject of the Northwest Herald’s FOIA request. Furthermore, some argue the agenda was not explicit enough in informing the public it intends to vote. A new provision in the Open Meetings Act requires that an agenda include the “general subject matter” of any issue that will be up for a final vote. The Northwest Herald asked the attorney general’s Public Access Counselor to weigh in on whether the agenda was in violation. The meeting will be at 6 p.m. today in the college’s boardroom. A nonvoting Committee of the Whole meeting will follow. Smith was hired with a three-year contract in June 2010 at a starting annual salary of $195,000. Her base pay in fiscal 2012 was $200,850, according to the Illinois Community College Board. Her contract was renewed last May through 2014.

Runner ‘knew it was something bad’ • LOCALS Continued from page A1 great helping us track her down, and we learned she was all right.” Rachel Sierminski was one of more than 20 McHenry County runners participating in Monday’s marathon. Family members the Northwest Herald reached Monday said most of the local participants weren’t in the area of the finish line when the explosions took place. Algonquin resident Mark Windsor, 51, heard ambulance sirens from his downtown hotel after he finished the race. “I’m just shocked,” Windsor said. “I just ran past there a half an hour before it happened.” David Neil of Marengo said his father, Alan Neil, finished the race and was safe. “He’s great. He had a good race. He was worried about that more than anything,” Neil said. Walt Calder, a member of the Hillstrider Running Club, confirmed that two marathon runners, Bob Walsh of Huntley and Cheryl Naughton of Crystal Lake, were both unharmed. According to Boston Marathon results on its website, Lakewood resident Linda Bailey finished 30 seconds before the bomb went off. On her Facebook page Monday night, Bailey wrote that she was “shaken, but OK”. “Hotel on lockdown,” Bailey wrote. “I just want to get home.” Gregg Sierminski credited race officials and emergency personnel for handling the scene as well as could have

“I just can’t believe someone would do this at an event like this. I feel good about my time and normally, you would feel excited and celebratory, but now, I really don’t know how to feel.” Steve Emmert, McHenry resident running in the Boston Marathon been expected. There was no panic in the way he saw officials attempting to keep runners calm, but he couldn’t get over the sound of the explosions. “It was the loudest thing I’ve ever heard. I knew it was something bad,” Gregg Sierminski said. “I’m really sorry for the victims. People look forward to this for so long and then this happens.” Jennifer Emmert of McHenry tracked her husband Steve’s progress on her cellphone and by trading text messages with her sister-inlaw. She said Steve Emmert finished about 40 minutes before the explosions, but took an extra half hour to get through all of the post-race activities. He left the scene to board the subway to return to Cambridge, Mass., where he is staying on Harvard University’s campus. Steve Emmert was told the subways had stopped running because of what a conductor called a blown transformer. Back in McHenry, Jennifer Emmert watched the story unfold on the news, first hearing about the explosions when a news alert interrupted normal programming. She said she knew Steve was fine after receiving a photo of him at the finish line via a text message. But while her husband was uninjured,

she couldn’t shake the video accounts of the incident she watched on television. “It was surreal,” she said. “It was beyond anything I thought would ever happen. It was just shocking and kind of crazy. It’s unbelievable really.” Steve Emmert said he didn’t hear the explosions and learned details of the scene from family members who were watching back in McHenry County. Unable to find a train that was running, Emmert said he and his friends walked back to Cambridge, hearing a host of sirens. He said he eventually learned all of his friends running in the event were unharmed. It wasn’t until he reached his accommodations that he saw the first images of the scene. He said the events of the day changed the way he’ll remember his first Boston Marathon. “It just left me with a sickening feeling in my stomach,” he said. “I just can’t believe someone would do this at an event like this. I feel good about my time and normally, you would feel excited and celebratory, but now, I really don’t know how to feel.”

Dan Duffy pushing bill in the state Senate • BILLS

What it means

Continued from page A1 but was subsequently amended as a compromise measure, said bill sponsor Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo. Franks is one of several lawmakers who have sought greater scrutiny over mass transit boards in the wake of the 2010 scandal surrounding former Metra Executive Director Phil Pagano. Pagano stepped in front of a Metra train before he was about to be fired for taking more than $475,000 in unauthorized vacation payouts. “The big thing I really wanted to get rid of was the benefits – health care and pensions. Those are payments due full-time employees. That was the most egregious thing I was working on,” Franks said. “The cherry on the sundae would have been having them lose their salaries, but I was worried that if I had that on there, it would have gotten shot down in the Senate.” Local Sen. Dan Duffy, R-Lake Barrington, is carrying Franks’ bill in the Senate. A member of the RTA board gets $25,000 a year, while a CTA board member

Two bills aimed at Chicago-area mass transit boards are moving through the General Assembly: • House Bill 140, which cleared the House last week and is headed to the Senate, seeks to strip the salaries, pensions and other benefits of members of the Regional Transportation Authority, Metra, Pace and the Chicago Transit Authority. • A full Senate vote could come today on Senate Bill 1594, which seeks to merge the RTA and the lesser-known Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning into one group.

Source: Ill. General Assembly gets $20,000, a Metra board member gets $15,000, and a Pace member gets $10,000. The CMAP board is uncompensated. The House last month passed a bill aimed at scaling back the pensions of teachers, state lawmakers, state employees and university teachers in an effort to get a grasp on a $96 billion unfunded pension liability. House Bill 140 targets only new appointees, not existing members.

Senate Bill 1594 seeks to merge the 15-member CMAP board and the 16-member RTA board into an 18-member, unpaid entity that would have a goal to double mass-transit use in 25 years. The bill seeks to eliminate what it calls “unnecessary and duplicative functions” between the agencies to “ensure that transit services are fast, well-maintained, efficient, convenient, safe and attractive.” However, many governments in the collar counties oppose the merger, alleging that it would give Chicago an even greater voice with which to swallow up tax revenue slated for mass transit. The term of McHenry County RTA representative Al Jourdan expired April 1, but County Board Chairwoman Tina Hill said the reappointment process would not begin until the RTA’s legislative fate is decided. The county’s representative on the Metra board, Jack Schaffer, said he does not intend to seek reappointment. His term expires June 30, 2014, as does the term of county Pace Board representative and Crystal Lake Mayor Aaron Shepley.

Don’t rush vote at MCC The McHenry County Board of Trustees is poised to vote tonight on extending MCC President Vicky Smith’s contract. At issue is the timing of tonight’s special meeting and the perception that the lame-duck board is trying to award Smith a contract extension with as little fanfare as possible. It is peculiar that an extension of Smith’s contract is being tackled at a For the record special meeting a week after three MCC should remove voting new MCC trustees were elected, on a contract extension for despite a possible MCC President Vicky Smith May 1 deadline to from tonight’s agenda. vote on an extension. Carol Larson and Barbara Walters lost re-election bids. Dennis Adams chose not to seek re-election. Replacing them will be Chris Jenner, Molly Walsh and Tom Wilbeck. Jenner, Walsh and Wilbeck have been outspoken against a $42 million expansion plan at MCC, a project that has been championed by Smith. Generally, we oppose lame-duck boards making decisions that will affect a future board’s ability to govern. In this case, however, the current board is most qualified to assess Smith’s performance on the job. And an additional one-year extension does not severely limit the new board from governing as needed. How the current board has gone about the process, however, leads to a number of questions. There is a regular MCC trustees meeting scheduled for April 25. Why tackle a contract extension at a special meeting? Why post notification of that special meeting late on a Friday afternoon and without an opportunity for public comment on the agenda? Only on Sunday was the agenda revised to include public comment. MCC chalked that up to a clerical error. Why not seek more time for the public to weigh in on the issue? MCC trustees should have let taxpayers know that a contract extension was on the table and sought public input on it before voting at the April 25 meeting, not at a hastily called special meeting. It’s not too late. MCC should remove voting on a contract extension for Smith from tonight’s agenda and vote on it April 25 after sufficient public input.

Texting while flying a no-no Those who insist government writes too many laws might consider the consequences from the absence of rules mandating public safety. For the first time in aviation history, the National Transportation Safety Board has found a fatal 2011 crash of a medical helicopter near Mosby, Mo., was due in part because the pilot was distracted as he was texting on his cellphone. It was a totally preventable tragedy, the first directly linked to distractions from electronic devices such as computers, cellphones and tablets. The answer to distracting devices seems simple enough. Don’t use them. Pilots should know better while working. The issue here is not pilot ego and authority, but passenger safety. Which is why the Federal Aviation Administration proposed rules forbidding pilots from using wireless devices and cellphones while a plane is in operation. The restrictions, which need prompt approval, would codify common sense. The (Burlington, Iowa) Hawk Eye

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Social Security protection To the Editor: As a victim of Social Security identity theft twice in the past year, I am suggesting to all Social Security recipients that they put a “hold” on their Social Security payments. This is a new, simple process done by going to the Social Security office with photo ID and Social Security card you can prevent hackers from stealing your benefits. After you put the “hold” on your account, it cannot be changed unless you go to the office with proper ID to request a change. The government will not notify you of this safety process. Don’t find out the hard way like I did that you can prevent Social Security theft. It may take a little effort to go to the Social Security office, but it’s worth it to prevent theft of money you have coming. Don’t let the bad guys win. William Brodrick Algonquin

Cartoon in bad taste To the Editor: April 2’s “Sketch View” political cartoon about us giving Palestinians some paltry aid was hypocritical and in bad taste. I can imagine the consequences of you publishing a cartoon of a fat Netanyahu accepting the $3 billion no-questions-asked yearly dole we give Israel and all the extras like paying for Iron Dome to defend her borders while our own are as porous as a sieve. It looks like we, the righteous

Christians who, in the name of God, decimated the native “savages” to take their land, cheated the Hawaiians out of theirs and are helping the Israelis do the same to the Palestinians. Our loyalty to Israel and the degrading of Palestinians makes us feel good because the land of Israel was given her by God, although they had to kill the Canaanites to take it.

Humankind in peril To the Editor: The history of humankind on Earth could prove as brief as it is dangerously misguided. Around 1800, after hundreds of millennia relying mostly on nature’s local bounty, a handful of entrepreneurs co-opted our global-resource “trust fund” through free-market buccaneering. Unrestrained growth and their freedom to exploit it were claimed the keys to everyone’s prosperity. With 1 billion of us fielding their labor force, markets and economies grew, populations and wealth grew. Resource exploitation grew apace. The resource trust fund was vast. Every cultural or economic advancement sprang largely from exploiting its bountiful interest. Little natural capital was consumed at first. No one questioned the wisdom of growth (though miserly profit distribution was sometimes violently protested). Around 1970, world population passed 4 billion, and the natural interest from the trust fund could

no longer support our growth. We didn’t miss a beat. We began sacrificing natural capital. Only a pariah questioned the wisdom of continuing to grow. Today, with over 7 billion of us, our consumption still exploding, we are glimpsing the limits of that once-vast resource heritage. Yet no one seriously suggests we stop growing. Quite the contrary. The White House says we need more young, educated workers while our older unemployed demand more jobs. Soon, decades at most, our natural trust fund will be depleted and growth will inevitably stop, leaving billions of us in poverty, many, perhaps most, facing premature death. Will anyone then consider whether we acted as judiciously as we might? Will it much matter? Donovan C. Wilkin Woodstock

registers that says: “This is the epitome of corporate greed. We are trying to improve our profits by using your unpaid labor to do our work. We are too cheap to hire paid employees with benefits because we can get stupid people to use these lanes. We do not value your business by actually waiting on you, but will punish you by making you wait in lines due to the lack of cashiers we employ.” Every time you use these lanes, you are hurting the economy and taking away another job. What happens when you are replaced and can no longer afford groceries or housing? Stop killing jobs and refuse to work for companies who want free labor. I get so mad when I see people using them I could scream. At least when gas stations started self-serve, you got a discount. All of those jobs are now gone. We cannot afford to keep losing jobs. I don’t work for these stores and will not do their job. Boycott these lanes. Tell stores you refuse you to work for them for free. You will be amazed at how many cashiers will thank you.

Britain’s hateful politics ranks up there with United States BELFAST, Northern Ireland – The death of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has prompted reactions from Britain’s far left that takes bad taste to new extremes. During its Top 40 music countdown Sunday night, BBC Radio 1 was “forced” to play a seven-second clip of “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead” from the 1939 film “The Wizard of Oz,” because Thatcher haters had bought enough copies during a feverish online campaign to bump it to the top of the pop charts. It ultimately reached the No. 2 spot, 5,000 sales short of the top position. If you think U.S. politics has become too corrosive, consider the British variety. Call it patty cake vs. cage fighting. “Death parties” have been held across the UK at which antiThatcherites celebrated her passing. Anarchists, who demonstrated

their hatred for Thatcher over the weekend, plan to join other haters for a demonstration at her funeral Wednesday, which has prompted Scotland Yard to make preparations to defend heads of state, or their representatives, along with celebrities against terrorist attack. A veteran Metropolitan Police officer, Sgt. Jeremy Scott, tweeted that he hoped Thatcher’s death was “painful and degrading,” adding the world would be a “better place” if Prime Minister David Cameron and some of his Cabinet members were also dead. Scott has since resigned. The Daily Mail reported that a drama teacher named Romany Blythe called Baroness Thatcher a “despot” and said: “They danced in the streets when Hitler died, too.” Some students who attended death parties were too young, or not yet born, to be aware of the Thatcher years. The Daily Telegraph quoted

VIEWS Cal Thomas 21-year-old Aamna Mohdin, a biology student at Queen Mary, University of London, who called Thatcher a “terrible person” and a “draconian woman” who did nothing for women or feminism. These are the products of “higher” education. One student who attended a death party was quoted as saying she didn’t become a liberal until she went to university. No surprise there. Why such visceral reactions to a woman who served her country for 11 years as prime minister? For many, government is a drug to which they have become addicted. They need the drug to survive. Margaret Thatcher tried to break that

addiction and get her people to support themselves. Anyone who suggests it is possible, even desirable, to break the government “habit” becomes the target of the “addicts” and their enabling politicians, both in life and now in death. The British press has reported on families in which several generations have been on “benefits” with no expectation of ever working, and no motivation for finding work. They are offended by suggestions they look for a job. Thatcher sought to break that cycle and in so doing angered many who thought it their “right” to be on the receiving end of other people’s money. The debate in the U.K. mirrors that taking place in the United States as too many politicians, reluctant to tell anyone “no” for fear of losing votes, indulge people in their social and economic addiction to government.

The battle being fought in both countries is between those who value the individual as supreme and others who regard the state as supreme. In the U.K. and U.S., government has exceeded its boundaries and just as last winter’s floods in the U.K. have caused severe damage, there has been similar damage to liberty and the promotion of capitalism in both countries. The Cameron government has cautiously tried to emulate Thatcher in its reform attempts. These include the costly and underperforming National Health Service – a preview of coming attractions if Obamacare is fully implemented. If Cameron succeeds, the left will probably celebrate his eventual demise, too. Such is the poisoned well of British politics.

CORONER: CL MAN DIED FROM SMOKE CRYSTAL LAKE – A man who died Sunday after a fire in his basement died of smoke inhalation, the McHenry County Coroner’s Office said in a news release. Dunn Mizell, 49, of 1709 Moreland Lane, had elevated carbon-monoxide levels, the coroner’s office said. Further toxicology results are pending. Authorities said a McHenry County Sheriff’s Office deputy had driven Mizell’s wife home Sunday morning, but the woman could not enter the house because the garage door was disengaged and appliances had been turned over and were blocking a side door. The circumstances surrounding the death are being investigated by the Crystal Lake Police Department, Crystal Lake Fire Rescue, the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office, investigators of the Office of the Illinois State Fire Marshal and the McHenry County Coroner’s Office. The Crystal Lake Police Department was not releasing any other information about the investigation Monday.

She said the state is the fourth highest in generating energy from wind. Farming itself can have negatives if land is over-fertilized and fertilizers start running off into the water supply.

ANNUAL TOWNSHIP MEETING TODAY Tonight is the annual township meeting for all Illinois townships. State law requires all townships to hold an April meeting in which residents have the same voting power as trustees, and can approve or reject spending and initiatives related to township government. The meeting, usually held the second Tuesday in April, is pushed back a week in years in which the day coincides with the township election. The deadline for residents to put items on the agenda was March 1.

Midwest Breakfast Co. co-owner survives aneurysm By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com SPRING GROVE – The headache was weirdly intense. Steve Mitchell, 47, was closing up Midwest Breakfast Co., a Spring Grove restaurant he co-owns with one of his sisters, when the aneurysm in his brain ruptured. “The pain in my head got to be so bad and different than any other headache I’ve had,” Mitchell said. “I could almost feel the pain rolling down my neck and into my shoulders. I just thought, ‘This is weird. This is not right.’ ” Mitchell doesn’t remember much after calling 911. He remembers the paramedics arriving, but he doesn’t remember much, if anything, of the ambulance ride to Centegra Hospital – McHenry, the helicopter ride to University of Illinois – Chicago’s hospital or the six-hour surgery that followed. For much of the 27 days he spent in intensive care, he was unconscious. About 40 percent of people do not

McHENRY – Seventy years after McHenry Brewing Company closed its doors, another brewery is looking to take its place at 3425 W. Pearl St. The McHenry City Council approved a conditional use permit and liquor license Monday for Chain O’Lakes Brewing Company, owned by Curt and Linda Ames of Johnsburg. The approval is contingent upon a background check and employees having proper training certification. “I know a lot of the residents are excited to see something come back to this location,” Alderman Jeffrey Schaefer said. The Ameses hope to have the place, which has been empty since Green Pearl Restaurant shut down in June 2010, open sometime between mid-June and the beginning of July, in time for Fiesta Days, Curt Ames said. Work needs to be done to bring the building up to code and install the brewing equipment, he said. The plan is to establish the microbrewery and taproom on the first floor where customers can taste, drink on-site and buy large sealed containers of beer known as growlers to take home, according to city documents. The second floor will house offices and will not be open to the public. Food will not be served, but people will be able to bring their own or order in. The hours won’t be typical of a bar either, tentatively set at 4 to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and noon to 9 p.m. Saturdays. “I don’t want to run a bar or compete with people who run bars,” Ames said.

Centegra voices opposition to Sherman-Advocate merger By JIM DALLKE jdallke@shawmedia.com ELGIN – Advocate Health Care announced plans to invest $200 million in Sherman Hospital last October, but not everyone is on board with the pending merger. Representatives from Centegra Health System, claiming that the proposed merger is a “land grab” and “financially irresponsible,” debated the potential benefits and downsides of the merger Monday with representatives from Advocate and Sherman in front of members of the Illinois

Health Facility and Services Review Board. “I ask the review board and the people of the Elgin area remain watchful of health systems that are more concerned with their bottom line than the well-being of their communities,” said Astrid Larsen, director of care coordination at Centegra. Rick Jackle, member of the Sherman Board of Directors, said the merger is a “logical next step” for the continued growth of the hospital. “Through this partnership, we will be able to pro-

vide better healthcare value for our community,” he said. “The patients in the Sherman service area will benefit greatly from the strength of Illinois’ largest healthcare system being so close to home.” The proposed investment includes $140 million for buying physician practices, recruiting doctors, expanding services and other developments, and $60 million for routine capital replacement. The merger also would allow Sherman to refinance or restructure its long-term debt by taking advantage of

Advocate’s lower borrowing costs. The acquisition would give Advocate reach into Kane and McHenry counties. “The investment of $200 million into a new hospital is a flagrant misuse of resources,” said John Heinrich, director of diagnostic imaging and oncology services at Centegra. “Instead, health systems should be focusing on providing high-quality care and development of services for community members in need.”

Ames has been a home-brewer since 1988 and thought about opening a business. He stayed with the Marine Corps though, retiring in 2010. Over the years, he took courses and worked at a couple microbreweries, learning the trade. The Ameses have come and gone from the area over

the years, most recently moving back in June. “Two things I’m trying to sell: The first thing is that when you walk through the doors, it really represents the Chain O’ Lakes, McHenry and veterans,” Ames said. “And when it comes to beer, I want it to taste the way you imagine good beer tasting and let people experience a wide variety of beers. It will be a place for people to hang out.”

Deadline to submit comments is April 24 • MERGER Continued from page B1 Representatives from Advocate said the merger will lower costs from supplies to interest costs, but the ultimate beneficiary will be the surrounding communities. “Every dollar that we save in costs for supplies, equipment, insurance and interest is a dollar that we can reinvest into patient care,” said Don Calcagno, senior vice president of operations integration at Advocate. The merger is tentatively scheduled for consideration by the Illinois Health Facility and Services Review Board on May 14. The public has until 9 a.m. April 24 to submit written comments pertaining to the merger to the review board. More information can be found at http://www. hfsrb.illinois.gov.

spent the majority of his life living there, but always missed Illinois and Wisconsin and longed for his old life in the Midwest. In the 1990s, he and Linda bought a lake home in Waupaca, Wis., and that home on the Chain of Lakes ended up being a gathering place for family and friends. There were many good memories made while boating on the lake. He continued to practice dentistry as an associate in Wisconsin and was recently retired. Jim usually started every conversation with a joke or two, and as one friend would put it, “you never knew where Jim was gonna show up.” He had a great love of family, friends, traveling, good food, sports, a good debate about current events and politics and life in general. His presence was always bigger than life, and he will be missed. The family will receive friends from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 20, at Davenport Family Funeral Home, 419 E. Terra Cotta Ave. (Route 176), Crystal Lake. Funeral services will be there at the funeral home right after visitation at 11 a.m. Inurnment will be private.

Jim was an avid tennis player in junior and senior high, and received a tennis scholarship to college. He was ranked eighth in the Midwest for boys’ tennis. His love of music and tennis followed him all of his life. He was so proud of the fact that both his grandchildren shared his love of music, with Andrew playing the oboe and marching saxophone in his high school marching band, and Heather achieving her master’s degree in flute performance.

Roy and Louise built their home and life together in Cedar Rapids. Infant son, Kent LeRoy preceded them to heaven in 1943; son, Robert (Bob) was born in 1947 and daughter Jane in 1952. Roy and Louise were members of First Christian Church and joyfully served God in many capacities in this congregation.

DOW HAS WORST DAY OF THE YEAR NEW YORK – The stock market posted its biggest drop of the year on Monday. A steep fall in commodity prices led to a widespread selloff in the stock market, as worries about the global economy resurfaced. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 265 points, its worst day this year. The first trigger came from China. News that the world’s second-largest economy slowed unexpectedly pummeled oil, copper and other commodities. In the stock market, companies that produce oil and mine for metals fared the worst. Oil prices hit their lowest level since mid-December, and gold plunged below $1,400 an ounce for the first time in two years as a sell-off in metals continued from last week. It was the biggest drop for the stock market since Nov. 7 – Election Day – last year.

Daily grind Caffeination Station machine brews gourmet coffee About Caffeination Station

By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com HUNTLEY – John and Patti Wuich can find themselves consuming a couple pots of coffee in a day. Like most avid coffee drinkers, the Huntley couple knows the effect a fresh, quality brew can do to a person enduring the daily grind. The former owners of Wuich Mechanical in Huntley also know a good business opportunity when they see one. Combining their business savvy and love for coffee, the two recently started an online-only coffee store called the Caffeination Station. The cornerstone of their start-up business is an automatic, gourmet coffee machine imported from Italy. The machine can dispense eight different espresso-style coffees, including cappuccino, mochachino, black coffee and even hot chocolate. “You are getting a better tasting coffee than the instants. It’s a gourmet blend. It’s a convenience to the employee and employer because they don’t have to do anything,” John Wuich said. “There’s nothing but pluses.” Nearly a month ago, John and Patti Wuich received the proper licensing to import the Italian-made machine. With five machines in hand, they have attended business expos in Huntley and Crystal Lake to spread the word about their small start-up business.

The Caffeination Station in Huntley offers a specialty gourmet coffee machine imported from Italy that dispenses eight different coffees, marketed toward businesses. The web-based store also offers roasted coffee blends and specialty teas online. To learn more, visit www.cafstation.com

Sarah Nader - snader@shawmedia.com

John Wuich of Huntley hands out a latte while demonstrating his Caffeination Station coffee machine. The couple believes the machine is a superior alternative to the typical coffee machines that populate office cafeterias and waiting rooms. For one, the machine dispenses high-quality blends and provides gourmet alternatives to the traditional black coffee, they said. The couple also won’t charge a business for installing machine, opting to charge a $1 per cup that may or may not be passed on to employees. The couple offers flexible payment plans that can be negotiated with any business that wants the machine. The two also service the machines, which plug into a regular electrical outlet for operation. “It saves employers time because they aren’t making that specialty cof-

fee run,” Patti Wuich said. “Employees can get a cappuccino or frappe from the office, and employers can save money and keep employees happy.” The two have spent the last month networking with businesses and finalizing a marketing plan. They hope to have 20 machines in place with businesses across the Chicago area by the end of the year. The web-based Caffeination Station also offers 20 to 30 different coffees available for the sale. John and Patti Wuich roast the high-quality blends and ship them within 24 hours of receiving the coffee beans. The speedy delivery guarantees that consumers both at home and in the office can get a savory cup of coffee. “People can have that great cup of coffee at home without having any of the chemicals,” Patti Wuich said. “You’re not going to be able to get anything fresher because we do the roasting.”

LAKE IN THE HILLS – Attorney JD Huls of Crystal Lake and a guest speaker from Consumer Credit Counseling Services will address the various options to stop foreclosure at 7 p.m. Thursday at Lake in the Hills Village Hall, 600 Harvest Gate. Topics will include review modification options, grants, short sales, and the Illinois Hardest Hit Program. Realtors Bobbie St. John, Lisa Savage and Jean Steffens of Brokerocity Inc. will be available to explain what a comparative market analysis is and the Realtor’s role in a short sale transaction. There will be time for additional questions at end of seminar. For more information, call 815-455-4755.

Dish Network offering to buy Sprint in $25.5B deal The Associated Press NEW YORK – Dish Network is offering to buy Sprint Nextel Corp. in a cash-and-stock deal it values at $25.5 billion, saying its bid is superior to that of Japanese phone company SoftBank. SoftBank Corp. is seeking approval from U.S. authorities for its $20 billion purchase of a 70 percent stake in Sprint Nextel Corp. that would be Japan’s biggest foreign acquisition ever. Sprint previously said that it expected the deal with SoftBank to close during the summer. The transaction, which was announced in October, was seen as a way to position Sprint as a stronger competitor against rivals AT&T and Verizon. Dish, an Englewood, Colo., satellite television company, has its own vision for a proposed combination with Sprint. During a conference call on Monday, the company stressed that demand for data by consumers is outpacing network capacity as people increasingly use cell phones, tablets and other devices. Dish Chairman Charles Ergen said that a combined Dish/Sprint company would have lowband, big band and high band spectrum access and be able to provide twice as much bandwidth as AT&T and Verizon. Dish said that its proposed transaction includes $17.3 billion in cash and $8.2 billion in

Dish Network satellite dishes are shown at an apartment complex in Palo Alto, Calif. Dish Network is offering to buy Sprint Nextel Corp. in a cash-and-stock deal it values at $25.5 billion stock. Sprint stockholders would receive $7 per share, which is a 13 percent premium to its Friday closing price of $6.22. This includes $4.76 per share in cash and 0.05953 Dish shares per Sprint share. Dish said that the cash portion of its bid is an 18 percent premium over the $4.03 per share

implied by the SoftBank offer, while the stock portion represents about 32 percent ownership in a combined Dish/Sprint company, as compared with SoftBank’s proposal of a 30 percent interest in Sprint alone. Dish Network Corp. said that its offer is a 13 percent premium to the existing SoftBank offer. The company also said that its proposal would result in estimated cost savings of $11 billion. In a letter sent to Sprint Chairman James H. Hance Jr., Ergen said that the company would fund the cash component of its bid with $8.2 billion of cash on its balance sheet and additional debt financing. The letter also said that Dish would have preferred holding confidential talks with Sprint about its proposal, but that the existing agreement with SoftBank and impending deadlines related to its shareholder vote prompted Dish to confirm its offer publicly. Ergen said during the conference call that Dish believed that SoftBank undervalued Sprint. While he would not say whether Dish would raise its bid for Sprint if SoftBank came back with a higher offer, he said that Dish would be more than will to pay the $600 million breakup fee for Sprint and SoftBank to terminate their proposed transaction. “We have to see how this plays out,” he said.

8IN BRIEF Abbott Labs recalls blood glucose meters ABBOTT PARK – Abbott Laboratories is recalling its FreeStyle InsuLinx Blood Glucose Meters after finding that they display and store incorrect test results for dangerously high blood sugar levels. The Abbott Park company says the meters will display and store readings for blood glucose levels of 1,024 milligrams per deciliter or higher at much lower levels. That’s an extremely high and rare level that requires immediate medical attention. The inaccurate readings can lead to a delay in identifying the problem or incorrect treatment. Abbott says that can lead to serious injury or death. Abbott says customers with the meter should contact its diabetes care customer service or download a software update that resolves the issue. Johnson & Johnson announced a similar recall last month for several types of its blood glucose meters.

Rising costs weigh on homebuilder confidence U.S. homebuilders are concerned that limited land and rising costs for building materials and labor will slow sales in the short term. Still, their outlook for sales over the next six months climbed to the highest level in more than six years — suggesting the obstacles could be temporary. The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo builder sentiment index fell this month to 42 from 44 in March. It was the third decline since January. Measures of customer traffic and current sales conditions both declined from March’s reading. Readings below 50 suggest negative sentiment about the housing market. The last time the index was at 50 or higher was in April 2006. The recent declines come after the index had been trending hiring since October 2011, when it was 17. Steady job creation, near record-low mortgage rates and rising home values have spurred sales over most of the past year. New-home sales fell in February after climbing to the highest level in more than four years the previous month.

Citigroup execs sound a cautious note By CHRISTINA REXRODE AP Business Writer NEW YORK – Citigroup isn’t convinced the economy is back. The bank’s executives were more cautious than celebratory Monday, even after announcing strong firstquarter results. Citigroup’s investment bank advised more companies on mergers and acquisitions; its retail bank wrote out more mortgages; it set aside less money for bad loans. The bank’s earnings beat expectations and its stock price rose. Even so, executives stopped short of declaring victory. “The environment remains challenging and we are sure to be tested as we go through the year,” said CEO Mike Corbat. Chief Financial Officer John Gerspach says the bank doesn’t think consumers are confident enough to drive the economy, whose growth he described as uneven. “We’re still going to be moving somewhat sideways.”

Citigroup’s view was more pessimistic than those of rivals JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo, whose CEOs last week described the economy as improving and consumer sentiment as healthy. Both banks reported record earnings but their revenue slipped, lowering their stock prices. The split in the banks’ outlooks appeared in the past two quarters as well. Citigroup, for example, wasn’t as confident as its competitors about a comeback in the housing market. Monday’s results marked Citi’s first full quarter under Corbat, who took over last fall from Vikram Pandit. Pandit stepped down under pressure from a board that was unhappy with his efforts to turn around the bank. Corbat is now under the same pressure. So far he’s been cutting jobs and trimming businesses in slow-growth areas, continuing Pandit’s plan to slim down the bank and make it more manageable and less susceptible to special scrutiny from regulators. In a call with

reporters, CFO Gerspach said he didn’t anticipate any “large scale repositioning charges,” but rather a steady move toward more efficiency. More on Citi’s results: • Investment banking vs. retail banking: Investment banking revenue there jumped 31 percent while revenue from consumer banking was flat. Citi’s investment banking unit advised more companies on mergers and acquisitions and underwrote more stock and bond offerings. In the consumer bank, credit card revenue inched down. • Mortgages: Citigroup funded $18 billion in mortgages in North America, up 26 percent from a year earlier. For the first time, the bank released some of the reserves it had set aside to cover bad mortgage loans in Citi Holdings, the unit where it has quarantined troubled assets from the financial crisis. Investors, Gerspach noted, are also willing to pay more for investments made of mortgages.

Is Your Pillow The Problem? (Carver, MN) According to the Mayo Clinic, Sleep Deprivation is a growing problem with over 28% of adults reporting they got fewer than 6 hours of sleep a night. Research shows that chronic lack of sleep is also linked to Colds and Flu, Diabetes, Mental Health Issues, and even Obesity. Michael J. Lindell, Inventor, Manufacturer and CEO of MyPillow ®, Inc. may have found the solution to getting a better night’s sleep. “Pillows are the Problem,” suggests Lindell who spent years searching for the perfect pillow that ultimately led to the creation of the highly successful “MyPillow ® Premium” brand of pillows. “Most pillows are designed to break down” says Lindell, “I would wake up in the morning with a sore arm, my neck would hurt, �ngers would be numb and I would toss and turn all night not knowing why. I tried many different pillows on the market and none of them worked so I started researching pillows and sleep disorders and became adamant about creating “The World’s Most Comfortable Pillow.” MyPillow ® Premium uses a Patented three piece Interlocking Fill that Stays Cool, is Healthy and Conforms to your exact individual needs regardless of sleep position. It comes with a full 10-Year Warranty and 60 night Comfort Guarantee. “MyPillow ® Premium is dust mite resistant, non-allergenic, and you can wash and dry it as easily as your favorite pair of blue jeans,” says Lindell.

Discover what over 1 Million people already know! Michael J. Lindell spent the last eight years selling MyPillow® Premium face-to-face at fairs, expos and events and has received thousands of testimonials (refer to mypillow.com) from satis�ed customers regarding how MyPillow® Premium has changed their lives and helped them get the most restful, comfortable, deep healing sleep of their lives. “To see the difference this has made in people’s lives is nothing short of a Miracle.” According to WebMD, some of the Bene�ts of a “Good Night’s Sleep” may help reduce the risk of:

Colds and Flu Heart Disease Diabetes Obesity Drowsy Driving Mental Degradation “Many people, like me, are in search of a pillow that will help them sleep comfortably,” says Lindell. “At night, you may sleep with your arm under your head for support, �ip-�op from side-to-side, �ip your pillow over because of overheating, basically robbing yourself of highly bene�cial REM sleep. Even if you are asleep for a full night, if your vertebrae in your neck are not aligned and fully supported, you may not be getting the deep healing sleep we need to be at our best.” Lindell is so con�dent MyPillow ® Premium will help you that he’s offering an unprecendented 60-Day Money Back Guarantee in addition to the 10-Year Warranty. “I know people are tired of paying money for pillows that simply don’t work,” says Lindell, “that’s why we give every customer 60 nights to sleep on it to make sure it works for them.” MyPillow ® Premium comes in 4 different lofts, has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and does all of its manufacturing here in the USA. “I truly believe MyPillow ® is the best pillow in the world and that if everyone had one they would get better sleep and the world would be a much better place.”

Ke$ha aims for worst-dressed THINGS

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

Tuesday, April 16, 2013 • PlanitNorthwest.com/buzz

While many stars arrived to the MTV Movie Awards dressed to impress, Ke$ha had another goal in mind – topping the worstdressed lists. The “Tik Tok” singer paired sheer, lace bell bottoms with a black fringe vest and severe makeup, including black lipstick. She described the look as “70’s Manson child” on the red carpet before Sunday’s show. Ke$ha said her mother is most proud of her when the singer is criticized for her daring style choices. She said her fashion philosophy includes having fun, making mistakes, taking risks. She says: “Rock whatever you’re comfortable in.”

Rihanna cancels show

Keys advocates HIV education Alicia Keys says she wants to spark a global conversation about HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. The Grammy Award-winning singer met with women who are part of an HIV program at United Medical Center in the nation’s capital Monday to discuss their experiences with the virus, including the fear and stigma associated with the disease. Keys, who has also traveled to Africa and India to meet with women who have HIV, said she felt connected to the women there and here because “they looked like they could be my sister, or they could be my aunt, or they could be my cousin.” And now, she said, she wants to “bridge” the gap between domestic and international conversations about the virus. Keys is working with the Kaiser Family Foundation for “Empowered,” a campaign launched last month to educate women about HIV and provide grants to community-based projects that will do that. According to Kaiser, one in four of the 1.1 million people living with HIV in the United States are women. Women of color account for about two-thirds of new HIV infections among women. “Black women are disproportionally affected, making up for the majority of all new infections,” Keys said. “That’s a must-have conversation.” Keys also is leading the Empowered Community Grants program with Kaiser and AIDS United that will give up to $25,000 grants to community-level projects that focus on women and HIV.

Weinstein, Chapman welcome boy Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman have added a baby boy to their family.

Weinstein and the Marchesa co-founder are already parents to a 2-year-old daughter. The Oscar-winning producer of such films as “Silver Linings Playbook” and “Django Unchained” also has three daughters from his previous marriage to Eve Chilton. Chapman and Weinstein married in 2007.

Faith Hill won’t do ‘SNF’ theme Faith Hill is out of the football game.

Hill says in her tweet it’s been an honor to appear on the NBC show, but it’s time to “let someone else rock the open. Difficult decision. Kinda emotional.” “Sunday Night Football” executive producer Fred Gaudelli tweeted “great love and appreciation” to Hill for her participation over the years. He made no mention of what the show plans to do with the opening.

Cameron Douglas’ sentence upheld Michael Douglas’ son will have to finish serving his nearly 10-year prison sentence after an appeals court Monday sided with a judge who punished him severely after Douglas was caught with drugs in prison. A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said nearly doubling the five-year prison term Cameron Douglas originally received to 9½ years was reasonable. The sentence is “unusually long” and “extraordinary” since most inmates with drug infractions are punished within prison, but judges are not required “to turn a blind eye to behavior that can reasonably be understood as demonstrating that a particular defendant has shown himself to be a poor candidate for treatment or leniency,” Judge Gerald Lynch wrote. Douglas, 34, is scheduled for release in early 2018. In a message aimed at prodding Congress toward reform, the court said: “It may well be that the nation would be better served by a medical approach to treating and preventing addiction than by a criminal-justice-based ‘war on drugs.’ ”

Hawks’ Saad, 20, savors fast success VIEWS Tom Musick United Center. To his right was a red-and-black Coca-Cola Zero logo of approximately the same size. Hopefully, the kid picks caffeine – but not too soon before bedtime.

At 20 years, 5 months and 21 days old, Saad is the youngest player on the Hawks. And while he won’t celebrate his 21st birthday until October, he already has enjoyed grown-up success. Saad notched another highlight in his remarkable rookie season during Monday’s 5-2 win against the Dallas Stars. He started on the top line and collected an assist when he snapped a cross-ice pass to Marian Hossa,

WRIGLEY FIELD RENOVATIONS

By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO CHICAGO – About 40 times a summer, Wrigleyville resident Rick Boyum enjoys a fiveminute walk from his home on North Wilton Avenue. Boyum, 65, has been a Cubs season ticket holder for the past seven years, sharing seats in the last row of the grandstand along the right field line with his friend, and he’s learned to embrace some of the chaos that comes along with living only two blocks from Wrigley Field since he first moved to the neighborhood in 1983. But he’s thankful a plan to renovate the ballpark, which was announced Monday, is finally in place. “You develop this inner rhythm and you know your street you can go on, so it really is not that much of a problem,” Boyum said. Standing at a podium on the concourse in Wrigley near club box aisles 15-17, a fitting backdrop to announce the Cubs’ $500 million proposal to renovate the stadium, chairman Tom Ricketts proclaimed Monday if they officially get the go ahead, a World Series title will follow. “If this plan is approved, we will win the World Series for our fans and our city,” Ricketts said. “We need this project to bring our fans a winner.” “I always believed, and I still believe, that it’s in everyone’s best interest to do what’s right for Wrigley Field not only economically but because it’s a special place. It has a special role in baseball history.” The extensive plan, which still must get through public hearings and be approved by the city before construction can begin, includes an increase from 30 to 40 night games and the ability to schedule up to six 3:05 p.m. starts on Fridays. The Cubs’ schedule already features TBD game times for some Friday games

who then fired the puck to Toews for a tip-in goal. That made it 24 points this season for Saad, who has nine goals to go along with 15 assists. He is a top contender for the Calder Trophy, which is given to the league’s top rookie. If you didn’t predict this kind of success back in January, that’s OK. Neither did Saad.

Staying focused

Renovation highlights Key points of the Cubs’ $500 million renovation proposal: • No public money will be used for the project. The Cubs project 2,100 new jobs will be created because of the renovation including 800 construction jobs and 1,300 permanent jobs. • Instead of 30 night games, the Cubs will be allowed to play 40 night games each season. Should Major League Baseball or national TV deals require the Cubs to play more than five home night games in one season, it will not count against their 40-game limit. However, no Saturday or Sunday night games will be allowed unless it is scheduled for national TV. • One sign will be added in right field up to 1,000 square feet and a video board will be built in left field up to 6,000 square feet. The sign will be similar to the Toyota sign currently residing in left field and along with the video board, the chosen location of each should have minimal impact on the rooftops. The Cubs have 11 years remaining on their deal with the rooftop owners. • Six Friday games will be permitted to start at 3:05 p.m. The Cubs have been lobbying for later starts on Friday, particularly when returning from road trips. Currently the Cubs are not allowed to start Friday games any later than 1:20 p.m., however, some Friday game times scheduled this summer have been changed TBD in case the proposal is quickly approved. • There will be increased security outside the ballpark. Thirty additional safety personnel will be stationed outside of Wrigley after games to ensure public safety to help address community concerns. Ten of the personnel will be provided by the Cubs.

in June through August in case the proposal is quickly approved, thus putting the 3:05 p.m. starts into effect.

Warriors’ Koepke sends Gators to first loss By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com

Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts said Monday the Cubs and the city of Chicago have agreed on details of a $500 million facelift for Wrigley Field, including an electronic video screen that is nearly three times as large as the scoreboard that sits atop the centerfield bleachers of the 99-year-old ballpark.

CRYSTAL LAKE – Kristin Koepke normally isn’t at her best when she’s got to battle cold, rainy conditions. The McHenry sophomore pitcher routinely struggles with her control and with hitting her spots, leaving her vulnerable to being hit hard. But Monday, Koepke’s teammates told her to ignore the intermittent bouts of the steady precipitation that made playing conditions miserable. Instead, she remained focused on shutting down Crystal Lake South’s hitters, taking heed to what she had

Koepke scattered five hits and struck out six as the Warriors handed South its first loss of the season in an 8-1 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division win. The game was called af-

ter five innings because of inclement weather. But as good as Koepke was, she had plenty of offensive support. McHenry (7-4 overall, 1-0 FVC Valley) banged out 12 hits – seven of which came in the fifth inning when the Warriors broke the game open with five runs. But even before the offense came, Koepke worked with what her teammates gave her. Kopeke credited catcher Carly Mattson, who mixed the pitch calls, keeping the ball off the plate and the Gators off-balance.

BULLS 102, MAGIC 84

WNBA DRAFT

Boozer lifts Bulls as skid stops at 2

Sky take 6-foot-5 Delaware standout

Shot to earn No. 5 seed still possible By KYLE HIGHTOWER The Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. – The fifth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs is still within the Bulls’ sights. Carlos Boozer scored 22 points, Luol Deng added 18 and the Bulls snapped a two-game losing streak with a 102-84 victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday night. Now with just one game left on their regular-season slate, the Bulls still can catch Atlanta for the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference. They need the Hawks to either split or lose their final two games to move from sixth up to fifth. It would be a small victory at the end of a tough year, but is an opportunity they don’t want to take for granted, either. “We’ve got one more, and then it really starts,” center Joakim Noah said. “I’m just happy that my foot held up. ... I think we’re a pretty deep team. We just need to play together and get our chemistry right. The last game is important. “It’s that time of year, so it’s exciting.” Tobias Harris led Orlando with 20 points, followed by Nik Vucevic with 17 points and 14 rebounds. Maurice Harkless also chipped in 16 points. The Magic finish just 12-29 at home, their fewest victories in Orlando since they were 1130 during the 2003-04 season. Orlando wraps up its schedule Wednesday in Miami. Charlotte beat New York on Monday night, leaving the Bobcats tied with the Magic for the league’s worst record. “It shows us how much better we have to get, how much harder we have to play,” Harkless said. “You know we’re a young team. We’ve got to learn how tough it is playing against these playoff teams. Hopefully in the future, we’ll be a playoff team.” Though he’s shrugged off questions lately about his team’s playoff preparations, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau

did manage to get Noah and Taj Gibson some work Monday after each had played sparingly down the stretch. Neither started the game, but Noah (right foot) was back on the court for just the second time in 14 games and Taj Gibson (left knee) played for the first time in eight games. Richard Hamilton also returned to action after serving a one-game suspension for hitting Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan with an elbow last week. “You have to make the best of whatever your circumstances are,” Thibodeau said. “Having so many guys out, and then some guys resting down the stretch, gave our guys an opportunity to grow.” The Bulls started slow, but outscored the Magic 28-14 in the second quarter to take a 12-point edge into the break. Deng and Boozer did most of the early offensive lifting, combining for 26 points in the half. “We’re a team that has people on this team for certain reasons and that’s why our team works,” Boozer said. “It’s like having a car that’s missing a couple of pieces. It ain’t going to run as smooth. But once we’ve got everybody back out there, once you’ve got the parts on the car, it runs pretty good.” The Magic had just three turnovers in the first quarter. They gave it away six times in the second quarter, leading to 10 Bulls points. The Bulls maintained their momentum as the lead quickly ballooned above 20 in the opening minutes of the third quarter. Orlando tried to make a few pushes, but never really threatened in the final 12 minutes.

Hawks surge in 3rd Winning streak at 6; point streak hits 8 By MATT CARLSON The Associated Press CHICAGO – Andrew Shaw, Niklas Hjalmarsson and Marian Hossa scored in the third period after Dallas rallied to tie it, and the Blackhawks went on to beat the Stars, 5-2, on Monday night for their sixth straight win. Jonathan Toews netted his team-leading 21st goal, and Viktor Stalberg also scored for the NHL-leading Hawks, who have points in nine consecutive games (8-0-1). Ray Emery made 16 saves and improved to 16-1. Jamie Benn scored both goals for the Stars, whose fivegame winning streak ended. They got even after falling behind 2-0. Richard Bachman made 23 saves in his third straight start in place of No. 1 goalie Kari Lehtonen, who is out because of a lower body injury. Bachman has been in goal

Next for the Hawks Nashville at Hawks, 7:30 p.m. Friday, CSN, NBCSN, AM-560 since relieving Lehtonen in the first period of the Stars’ 5-1 win over Los Angeles on Tuesday. The Stars remained in ninth place in the Western Conference, two points below the postseason cutoff with six games remaining. Dallas rookie Alex Chiasson left the game with an upper body injury in the first period after playing six shifts. Chiasson had six goals and an assist in his first six NHL games after being called up from Texas of the AHL earlier this month. Hawks forward Patrick Sharp, the team’s leading

goal scorer last season with 33, missed his second straight game and 16th of the past 18 because of an upper body injury. Toews scored the only goal of the first period on a tip-in with 7:06 left to cap a cross-ice passing play with Hossa and Brandon Saad. Stalberg used a burst of speed to give the Hawks a 2-0 lead with 7:46 left in the second. Benn cut it to 2-1 just less than two minutes later, capping a 3-on-1 break that resulted from a rare Hawks turnover. After Patrick Kane couldn’t handle the puck just inside the Hawks’ blue line, Benn, Ray Whitney and Loui Eriksson raced down the ice against Hjalmarsson. Benn fired a shot between Emery’s pads from the low edge of the right circle after a quick giveand-go with Whitney. Benn tied it at 2 with his 10th goal at 3:07 of the third.

Saad candidate for Pacers-Celtics game today NHL’s rookie of year NBA NOTES

canceled after bombings The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – The Boston Celtics’ home game against the Indiana Pacers scheduled for tonight has been canceled because of the Boston Marathon bombings. The NBA said Monday that the game will not be rescheduled. The Celtics and Pacers already have clinched playoff berths and are locked into certain seedings in the Eastern Conference. Two bombs exploded in

the packed streets near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday. LeBron sits out win: AT Cleveland, LeBron James watched from the bench in street clothes as Norris Cole stripped Kyrie Irving of the ball with 2.2 seconds left to give the Miami Heat, resting most of their top players for the playoffs, a 96-95 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night. Cole finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. But it was his only

steal on Cleveland’s final possession that sealed it. James was disappointed to not play in another homecoming game against his former team, but he appreciated coach Erik Spoelstra’s desire to get the NBA champions as healthy and refreshed as possible heading into the postseason. Chris Bosh and Mario Chalmers joined James on the bench while Dwyane Wade, Shane Battier and Udonis Haslem stayed back in Miami with minor injuries.

NHL

Penguins’ Crosby resumes skating The ASSOCIATED PRESS PITTSBURGH – Penguins star Sidney Crosby skated before the team’s practice Monday. Crosby wore a protective mask while skating with injured teammates James Neal and Paul Martin. Coach Dan Bylsma said there is no timetable for Crosby’s return, but called it a positive step for the NHL’s leading scorer. “I would say a foot in the water,” Bylsma said. “I didn’t go out there and see how hard he did go, but I know he was just out for basically a skate. He got out there for a little bit of exercise and to get on the ice.” Crosby, whose 56 points are four ahead of Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos and Martin

St. Louis, has not played since being struck in the face by a puck March 30. The Penguins have gone 4-2 without him and remain atop the Eastern Conference standings with two weeks left in the regular season. Neal hasn’t played since being diagnosed with a concussion after a hit from New York Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto on April 5. Bylsma called Neal “symptom-free” but added that the winger will not be rushed back. “It’s definitely good to see guys on the ice and skating,” Bylsma said. “I think it bodes well for their situation.” Center Evgeni Malkin, who missed Saturday’s 3-1 win over Florida with an upper body injury, could play Wednesday against Montreal.

The reigning NHL MVP is dealing with a lingering shoulder issue that can make it difficult for him to take a full shot without pain. He could have played against the Panthers if the game was more significant and he thinks he will be ready to play against the Canadiens. “I feel good,” Malkin said. “We have a couple days off and skate today and I have little bit of injury, but we still have time until the next game.”

Bruins-Senators game postponed: The NHL said Monday night’s game between the Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins at TD Garden was postponed in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings. No makeup date has been scheduled.

• MUSICK Continued from page C1 “No, definitely not,” Saad said with a grin before his latest start alongside Hossa and Toews. “It’s been a great year. During the lockout, I just wanted to make the team, really.” Yeah, he did that. Maybe you also were a high achiever at age 20. Perhaps you chose to serve in the military, or maybe you worked on the family farm or launched an online start-up or something. As for me? Not so much. Let’s just say that I was not in the running for a MacArthur Genius Grant when I was 20 years old. At that age, I considered it a successful day when I made a grilled cheese sandwich without setting off the fire alarm in my apartment. Actually, I’m still pretty proud when that happens. Saad is proud of other things, like catapulting from the Saginaw Spirit of the Ontario Hockey League to the Hawks in less than two years. He was the Hawks’ second-round pick (No. 43 overall) in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, and he caught a quick glimpse of his dream last season with two regular-season games and two playoff contests. Yet it wasn’t until this year that Saad truly earned those stripes at the bottom of his sweater. Saad made the Hawks’ opening roster but started the regular season as a healthy scratch. After Daniel Carcillo was injured in the first game,

Saad joined the lineup. He hasn’t missed a game since. Every goal, every assist and every win helps Saad to realize he is old enough to shine. Part of him knew that all along. Another part of him needed a good start to make sure. “I think to play at this level, a lot of guys have confidence,” Saad said. “But for pucks to go in and to produce offensively – it’s something that when you do it, you know you can do it.” What’s less certain is whether Saad might win the Calder Trophy at the end of the season. Eight players in franchise history have won the award, including Tony Esposito in 1970, Steve Larmer in 1983, Ed Belfour in 1991 and Patrick Kane in 2008. Saad embraces the possibility of being named the league’s rookie of the year. “Yeah. I mean, who knows?” Saad said. “It’s for them to decide. “But really, it’s focused on finishing off the season well and playing well in the playoffs. Individual stuff is always nice, but it’s team goals we’re going for in the end.” As Saad said, who knows? Maybe the Hawks will win a championship, and he can drink from the Stanley Cup. Hopefully, it’s filled with Coca-Cola Zero. • Northwest Herald sports columnist Tom Musick can be reached at tmusick@shawmedia.com and on Twitter @ tcmusick.

BRISTOL, Conn. – Brittney Griner left an indelible mark on women’s college basketball. Now she’s ready to take on the pros. The Phoenix Mercury took Baylor’s star center with the top pick in the WNBA draft M o n d a y Ellena night. Like Phoe- Delle Donne nix, the Chicago Sky added a budding star in Elena Delle Donne with the No. 2 pick to an already stacked roster that just missed making the playoff last season. The 6-foot-5 forward, who can play multiple positions was second in the nation in scoring (26.0) and averaged 8.5 rebounds. She finished her career at Delaware with 3,039 career points – fifth all-time in NCAA history. “This is a phenomenal team I’m joining, mentors who will help me out along the way,” Delle Donne said. “I’ll learn a ton from these players. We definitely have a great team. I felt I was a good puzzle piece for this team. You don’t say where you want to go before it was happening, but Chicago was my pick and I wanted to go there really badly.” Tulsa took Notre Dame guard Skylar Diggins with the third pick. Diggins averaged 17.1 points, 6.1 assists and 3.1 steals while helping the Irish reach the Final Four the past three seasons. “When I entered Notre Dame we had lost in the first round of the tournament the year before,” Diggins said. “At the end of my career we had brought the program back to an elite level. I’m looking forward to get to Tulsa and show my leadership skills and do whatever coach Klopp wants me to do.” WNBA president Laurel Richie opened the draft offering the league’s thoughts and prayers to those affected by the bombings in Boston. She said earlier in the evening that the WNBA had discussions whether to hold the draft, deciding to go ahead with it. And then soon after the draft started she announced Griner as the first choice. Despite knowing she was going first, two-time AP Player of the Year Griner admitted she was extremely nervous. “It’s a dream come true, I’m like a little kid in Disney World the first time meeting all the characters,” Griner said. “Sitting at the table they said 15 seconds and my heart started beating so fast. I was grabbing the tablecloth underneath.” The 6-foot-8 phenom finished as the second all-time scorer in women’s NCAA history, with 3,283 points. She is the top shot-blocker ever, shattering both the men’s and women’s college marks with 748. She also had a record 18 dunks – including 11 this season. Griner joins a talented Mercury squad that was plagued by injuries most of last season. Star Diana Taurasi played in only eight games and Penny Taylor missed the entire year while recovering from an ACL injury. Candice Dupree also missed 21 games because of a knee injury. “I’m ready to get there and ready to learn from [Taurasi],” Griner said. “I got to play with her a little bit at USA Basketball. I’m ready to feed off her and give all I can to the Phoenix Mercury. Phoenix had the second-worst record and a 28 percent chance of getting the first pick. Washington, which had the worst record in the league picked fourth.

LOYOLA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

Swoopes takes over; Ramblers on move Loyola to join Missouri Valley on July 1 By JACK McCARTHY The Associated Press CHICAGO – Sheryl Swoopes is moving courtside as the new women’s basketball coach at Loyola. And the school is making a move of its own. Swoopes, a four-time WNBA champion and threetime Olympic gold medalist, formally was introduced Monday. She takes over a Ramblers program eager for a revival as the school moves to the Missouri Valley Conference from the Horizon League. “This has always been a lifelong dream of mine, to have the opportunity to do something that I love,” Swoopes said. “That is to not only play basketball but be in position to pass that on to the up-and-coming generation.” Swoopes succeeds Eric Simpson, who resigned after four seasons. Loyola finished 17-15 last season, 10-6 in the Horizon League, and advanced

to the league title game before falling to Green Bay. Richmond-Burton graduate Erin Thomas was a freshman guard on last season’s team. She saw limited action in seven games. The school in recent years has opened a new multipurpose athletic facility and remodeled its arena. Loyola also has accepted an invitation to the Missouri Valley, according to a person familiar with the situation who spoke Sunday on the condition of anonymity because the move has not been announced. A formal announcement is expected this week, with the move taking effect July 1. Loyola is a Roman Catholic institution located on Chicago’s far North Side. It men’s team won the 1963 NCAA championship. The coaching job is Swoopes’ first at any level. She’ll be the eighth women’s coach in program history. Terms were not disclosed.

“I can’t guarantee anything, but I can promise you this: I’m going to give everything that I have every single day,” she said. “Everything that I’ve done and accomplished as a player, it’s time to pass that on and I’m so thrilled for this opportunity.” A six-time WNBA All-Star and three-time MVP, Swoopes scored 4,875 points during a 12-year WNBA career that wrapped up in 2011. She won an NCAA championship at Texas Tech and was the Naismith player of the year. Nike named a shoe after her, too. “Sheryl Swoopes has been a household name for the better part of the two decades and she’s achieved competitive success on every level,” said M. Grace Calhoun, Loyola assistant vice president and athletic director. “Sheryl is a delightful mix of warmth, huAP photo mility, genuineness and compassion. But she combines this Sheryl Swoopes acknowledges the crowd Feb. 17 during a ceremony to honor the 1993 Texas Tech national with a fiery spirit that doesn’t championship team in Lubbock, Texas. On Monday, Loyola formally introduced Swoopes, a four-time WNBA take well to losing.” champion and three-time Olympic gold medalist, as its new women’s basketball coach.

McHenry jumps on CLS miscues in early innings • SOFTBALL Continued from page C1 “Things worked for us,” Koepke said. “I feel like for how the weather was, it was a really good outing. I just had to fight through it – there was nothing we could do about it.” Koepke never ran into serious trouble, keeping South (7-1) from scoring until Sam McLean delivered an RBI double, scoring Kara Zybko, who reached on an infield single. McHenry gave Koepke just enough offensive production, scoring single runs in the second, third and fourth innings. The Warriors took advantage of a South error in the second and took advantage of defensive lapses Gators coach Scott Busam characterized as “raw.” “They put the ball in play, they hit the ball hard and you’ve got to play good defense,” Busam said. “We did not ... and they exploited everything we were willing to give them. It’s disappointing because we have a better team than what we showed today.” McHenry’s offense only made matters worse for the Gators. Alex Martens and Cassie Arns paced McHenry with two hits apiece. Martens had two doubles and drove in a run while Arns drove in a pair of runs with a single and a double. The brunt of the offense came in the fifth inning when the Warriors settled in against South starter Hailee Massie, driving the ball and finding empty gaps in the Gators defense. “[Massie] kept placing it right down the middle and it was just easier to hit,” Martens said. “It was just good placement. Everybody just hit the ball where they weren’t. They were just line drives and it was just perfect. It felt great to finally get out and hit some balls.”

8INSIDE BASEBALL Athlete of the Week BRYAN KLENDWORTH Prairie Ridge, sr. Klendworth continued his torrid spring by going 10 for 14, with eight RBIs, for the week as the Wolves finished 3-2. Klendworth is hitting .620 with four doubles, four triples and four home runs for the season. He also has 13 stolen bases. Klendworth started the week with a 4 for 4 game, with a homer, stolen base and two RBIs, in a 6-3 loss to Evanston. He was 2 for 4 with a triple and five RBIs in a 13-9 loss to Grayslake North, then went 3 for 3 with a double and triple in a 10-1 victory over Johnsburg. Klendworth finished the week going 1 for 3 with a run scored in the Wolves’ 5-3 win Saturday against Lane Tech.

Noteworthy More on ‘Suds’: Cary-Grove coach Don Sutherland got his 500th career victory in Saturday’s 12-1 win at Grayslake North, which is 100 more than any other coach in area history. Sutherland grew up in Ottawa in central Illinois, and his father Jim was a baseball coach. He is respected and well-liked by his fellow coaches in the Fox Valley Conference. “He’s the guy in the conference we all look up to,” Prairie Ridge coach Glen Pecoraro said. “He’s kind of the model of the baseball coaches in our conference. It’s been a pleasure coaching against him all these years. We’ve had battles back and forth in conference, regional championships and in sectionals. I’ve learned so much from coaching against him, and just watching his demeanor and watchiing how he handles himself and his kids.” Sutherland, 56, plans on coaching for several more seasons, which should allow him to put his win total well above 600 before he retires. Another milestone: Pecoraro, who has coached Prairie Ridge for 13 of its 16 seasons, is closing in on 300 career victories. After Saturday’s sweep of Lane Tech, the Wolves have him at 298 career wins. The Wolves were leading 9-7 in the top of the third inning Monday against Lake Zurich when the game was suspended because of lightning. Pecoraro coached from 1998, the year the school opened, through 2006. After three years away, he returned in 2010. The mighty Valley: There are a handful FVC crossover games remaining, which count in the standings, so soon the FVC Valley teams will start playing each other, which should get interesting. Coming into the week, the seven Valley teams were 62-15 overall and 23-3 in crossovers against the FVC Fox teams. Huntley (10-0) and Crystal Lake South (7-0) had not lost; Jacobs (9-1) had only one blemish and Cary-Grove (10-3) and Prairie Ridge (13-3) also look good.

This week’s top games Cary-Grove vs. Crystal Lake South Friday and Saturday South shared the FVC Valley title with Prairie Ridge last season and faces a tough C-G team in their division series. They play at 4:30 p.m. Friday at South, then at 10 a.m. Saturday at C-G. Huntley vs. Prairie Ridge Friday and Saturday Prairie Ridge shared the FVC Valley championship with South last season. Huntley had not lost to start the week and is scoring runs in bunches. They play at 4:30 p.m. Friday at Prairie Ridge, then at 10 a.m. Saturday at Huntley. – Joe Stevenson

JACKIE ROBINSON DAY

AMERICAN LEAGUE

Violent backdrop to day for Jackie The ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI – Lined up in front of their dugouts, all wearing No. 42 on Jackie Robinson Day, the Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins stood for a moment of silence to honor bombing victims at the Boston Marathon. What began as an annual celebration to salute the man who broke baseball’s color barrier 66 years ago turned somber after a pair of explosions near the finish line in Boston – about a mile from Fenway Park – killed three people and injured more than 140 Monday. Hours later, Major League Baseball went on with ceremonies for the fifth Jackie Robinson Day at stadiums all over the country and north of the border in Toronto. “Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this horrible occurrence and we are monitoring the situation,” MLB spokesman Pat Courtney said in a statement. “The safety of everyone that comes to our ballparks is always our top priority and we will continue to do everything to ensure a safe environment for our fans.” There were moments of silence before each of the seven night games. At Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, President Barack Obama’s remarks to the nation were shown on the video board while the Phillies were taking batting practice. “I think everyone was thinking about it,” said Philadelphia outfielder Ben Revere, who taped the message “PRAY for Boston” on his glove. “It hurts to see something like that happen.” The game between the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays started at 11:05 a.m. Eastern time on Patriots Day in Massachusetts and ended about an hour before the bombings. Fans near Fenway Park, some who had recently exited the game, could hear the explosions. All the teams in action were asked to wear Robinson’s number, retired throughout baseball in 1997. Yankees closer Mariano Rivera is the only active player who still wears the number, and he has said he is retiring after this season. Teams that didn’t play Monday planned to pay tribute to Robinson today. Robinson’s debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15,

1947, is drawing special attention this year with the release of the film “42,” which went into wide release last weekend. Robinson’s widow, Rachel, along with the couple’s daughter, Sharon, and son, David, were introduced before the Dodgers played the Padres in Los Angeles. Harrison Ford bounced the ceremonial first pitch to Dodgers manager Don Mattingly. Ford plays ex-Brooklyn general manager Branch Rickey in “42.” In Minnesota, Twins first baseman Justin Morneau saw a screening of the movie in spring training and was pleasantly surprised to see brief footage of himself running onto the field during some of the stock shots of players paying homage to Robinson by wearing his No. 42. “I wasn’t expecting it, so it was pretty cool,” Morneau said. “Just quick running across the screen, but to see yourself in a movie of that importance is pretty cool.” The Rays had a special screening, too. More than 100 players and other club employees watched the film at a theater in Port Charlotte, Fla., the Rays’ spring training site, “and I think a lot of guys walked away with a greater appreciation” of Robinson’s contribution, manager Joe Maddon said before the Rays lost 3-2 to the Red Sox. Maddon said Robinson’s debut helped lead to the broader civil rights movement. “I still don’t think people understand how much it plays into the Martin Luther King situation,” he said. “The revolution that occurred at that particular moment, it mattered. That had to happen first to set that whole thing up. “So when you’re talking about Jackie Robinson, I don’t think people realize the significance and really courage that went behind that, and in the movie it points that out – the courage to not fight back, to be able to win over that particular mindset to be able to make all of this work,” he added. Red Sox manager John Farrell said baseball “reflects society in so many ways, whether it’s the color barriers being broken down. In our clubhouse you’ve got six or seven countries coming together. As a group of 25, you look to not only co-exist, but [recognize] the individuality of everyone in there.

Buehrle beats Sox Lefty wins first meeting against old team By IAN HARRISON The Associated Press TORONTO – Mark Buehrle found it “a little crazy” facing the White Sox for the first time. Still, he kept his cool and shut down his former team. Buehrle pitched in and out of trouble into the seventh inning, J.P. Arencibia and Maicer Izturis hit solo homers and the Toronto Blue Jays topped the Sox, 4-3, on Monday night. “It was different seeing the Sox uniform in the batter’s box,” Buehrle said. “Usually it’s behind me. It’s weird rooting against those guys. I’ve rooted for them for 13 years and wanted them to win every game. This is the first game in I don’t know how long that I’m actually rooting against them.” Buehrle (1-0) went 61/3 innings in his first career start against the Sox, allowing two runs and nine hits. The left-hander walked two and

struck out three. Both runs he allowed came in the first. “Once he got through that first inning it kind of became a clinic on hitting spots, changing speeds,” White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. “You’ve seen this his whole career. He’s just a smart pitcher.” A four-time All-Star during his 12 seasons with the White Sox from 2000-11, Buehrle starred for the Sox’s 2005 World Series championship team, pitched a no-hitter in 2007 and perfect game in 2009. “He had a tremendous career there,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. “He helped, in a lot of ways, make the Sox what they are. All

those years when they were playing really well, he was one of the key guys. Buehrle said facing so many old friends forced him to be more focused than usual. “I tried not to take a look at too many guys stepping into the batter’s box because I knew I’d start laughing or something bad would happen,” he said. “I just tried to focus on the glove, which is not me. Usually I’m out looking around and having fun.” Buehrle acknowledged changing up some pitch patterns to keep the Sox guessing. “It seemed like everything was working,” he said. “J.P. called a great game and we had a good game plan going in. Obviously, knowing that they know me, we kind of changed a few things up.” Arencibia went deep in the first and Izturis connected to begin the second as the Blue Jays opened a seven-game homestand with their third victory in four games.

MLB ROUNDUP

Red Sox top Rays before bombings The ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON – The Red Sox and Rays were making their ways out of Fenway Park when two explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon were heard at the stadium. The Red Sox beat the Rays, 3-2, on an RBI double by Mike Napoli in the ninth inning Monday in Boston’s traditional Patriots’ Day morning game. The game began at 11:05 a.m. local time and ended at about 10 minutes after 2 p.m. A little less than an hour after that, about a mile away, the explosions from Copley Square could be heard by those in and around Fenway – but not in the clubhouses where the teams were getting ready to leave. The game sent the Red

Sox fans home happy – at least for a while. Twins 8, Angels 2: At Minneapolis, Joe Mauer had a home run among his four hits and drove in three runs for Minnesota in a victory over Los Angeles on a cold, windy night that helped send several fly balls to the deepest parts of Target Field. Kevin Correia (1-1) earned his first American League win after finishing seven innings for the third time in as many starts with the Twins, getting two double-play grounders to help him limit the Angels to solo home runs by Peter Bourjos and former Twins utility infielder Brendan Harris.

NATIONAL LEAGUE Reds 4, Phillies 2: At Cincinnati, Brandon Phillips drove in a pair of runs with

a bases-loaded single in the eighth inning and Cincinnati ended its five-game losing streak by beating Philadelphia. Cincinnati’s five-game slide matched its longest slump from last season, when it won the NL Central. Cardinals 10, Pirates 6: At Pittsburgh, Jon Jay and Matt Holliday each had two hits and two RBIs as St. Louis jumped on Pittsburgh early. Allen Craig doubled and drove in three runs for the Cardinals, who knocked around James McDonald (12) with a seven-run second inning. Nationals 10, Marlins 3: At Miami, Jordan Zimmermann pitched a six-hitter for his third victory of the season and Washington bounced back from a humbling weekend to beat Miami.

Proposed video board would be 3 times size of scoreboard • WRIGLEYVILLE Continued from page C1 But the inclusion of a video board in left field up to 6,000 square feet is drawing the most attention because of the potential view obstruction it could create for Wrigleyville rooftop owners, who still have 11 years remaining on their contract with the Cubs. The video board is projected to be nearly three times the size of the historic center field scoreboard, about 2,000 square feet. Boyum said he doesn’t believe Wrigley needs a video board but understands that in this era, it’s something people want. Although the concept of a video board was first mentioned at the Cubs Convention in January, the Cubs suppos-

edly were only surveying fan and community interest in the addition. The Cubs needed only three months to decide it’s a necessity. “The video boards have grown over the past few years,” Ricketts said. “People are expecting to be able to see replays and stats and other things that video boards provide. We thought that was the right number for us, and we thought we have the right space to do that.” The renovations will take place over five sequential offseasons based on the Red Sox’s model for when they fixed Fenway Park. Those changes also involve building a hotel, a potential complication for Engine 78. The firehouse, located at the corner of Seminary and Waveland Avenue behind the

left field bleachers, has been part of the community since 1915. One firefighter, who asked his name not be used because he did not have authority to speak to the news media, said the addition of a high-rise building will require more manpower from the department if it received a call. Engine 78 employs 30 responders with seven – five on the engine and two with the ambulance – working each day. “Currently, we have just enough manpower,” the veteran firefighter said. “It would be up to Mayor [Rahm] Emanuel to add more manpower to the department [if it was needed].” The city, as indicated in the Cubs’ plans, is vacating sidewalk and one street lane on

Waveland Avenue (from Sheffield Avenue to Clark Street). That’s worrisome for the fire department. Buses routinely line up on the two-way street after games, and eliminating one lane would force the fire truck or ambulance to work through congestion or potentially have to take longer routes. The firefighter added that the same issue would apply for any street festivals that would close down Sheffield Avenue. When Paul McCartney played at Wrigley in 2011, the firefighter said thousands of people congregated on Waveland Avenue, making it difficult to respond to calls. But one of the biggest hurdles facing the Cubs and their plan to renovate Wrigley is the opposition from rooftop

owners. Rooftop and Murphy’s Bleachers owner Beth Murphy told the Northwest Herald that the Cubs need to provide more details on their plan, such as what they plan to do with traffic around Wrigley if they take away a lane on Waveland Avenue. Murphy, who is the spokeswoman for the Wrigleyville Rooftops Association, wouldn’t speculate as to what would happen if the Cubs offered to buy out the remaining years on their agreement. But a court date could be looming. “Obviously any business is for sale at the right price, but that would be difficult to answer,” Murphy said. “We’re not even close to being at that level of negotiation. It’s important for us to get this process started.”

THIS DATE IN BASEBALL April 16 1935 — Babe Ruth, 40, made a sensational National League debut in Boston. His single and homer off Carl Hubbell led the Braves over the Giants 4-2. 1940 — Bob Feller of Cleveland defeated the White Sox 1-0 in the only opening day no-hitter in major league history. 1948 — WGN-TV televised a baseball game for the first time. It was an exhibition game at Wrigley Field with Jack Brickhouse doing the playby-play. The White Sox defeated the Cubs 4-1. 1997 — The Cubs set the mark for worst start in National League history, making three more errors as they extended their losing streak to 12 with a 4-0 loss to the Colorado Rockies. Chicago broke the modern NL record of 0-10 set by Atlanta in 1988 and the overall NL record of 0-11 by the 1884 Detroit Wolverines.

Chasing Hendrick ‘not in spirit’ of NASCAR rules? CHARLOTTE, N.C. – If garage gossip is to be believed, somebody dropped a dime on NASCAR champion Brad Keselowski and his Penske Racing team at Texas Motor Speedway. The story blowing like wildfire Monday through NASCAR goes like this: Keselowski was parked at Texas next to Jimmie Johnson, while teammate Joey Logano was further down the garage parked next to Jeff Gordon. The assigned spots gave Hendrick Motorsports crews Brad crystal clear views Keselowski of the Penske cars all weekend As the story goes, there may have been eavesdropping on team chatter over the scanner during practice runs. Did someone from Hendrick ask NASCAR to take a closer look at the Penske cars? On race day, NASCAR inspectors were indeed sniffing around looking for an infraction. What they found in the rear-end housings on the No. 2 and No. 22 Fords were confiscated – Logano barely made the start of the race – though NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton curiously avoided a very important word in explaining the problem with the Penske cars. Pemberton never said the cars were illegal. The furthest Pemberton went Saturday in describing the problem in the rear-end housings was they were “not in the spirit of the rule.” That might well be the issue behind Keselowski’s post-race rant, when he hinted that NASCAR was not treating the Penske teams fairly. “There’s so much stuff going on, you guys (reporters) have no idea – you have no [expletive] idea what’s going on,” he said. “I can tell you there is no team in this garage with the integrity of the 2 team. The way we’ve been treated over the last seven days is absolutely shameful. I feel like we’ve been targeted over the last seven days more than I’ve ever seen a team targeted in my life.” While those are certainly fighting words, NASCAR spokesman Brett Jewkes posted Monday on Twitter that Keselowski would not be punished for his post-race remarks. NASCAR is reviewing the actual alterations on the Penske cars, and penalties are practically guaranteed. NASCAR traditionally hands out sanctions on Tuesdays, and on this particular week, that’s the exact day that Keselowski and his No. 2 team just happen to be scheduled to celebrate their Sprint Cup title with NASCAR officials at the White House. When the dust settles, crew chiefs Paul Wolfe and Todd Gordon will likely be sidelined for several weeks while Keselowski and Logano are stripped of critical points in the standings. Remember, it will be for something that hasn’t been deemed illegal, at least not yet. It’s more likely this is a case of something in development that the Penske crew was trying and NASCAR decided was too close to the

IN THE PITS Jenna Fryer edge. And there’s the rub in all of this. NASCAR gets to decide when a team has crept too close to a nonexistent line in the rule book. Johnson’s crew chief, Chad Knaus, has won five championships with one toe on that mark, and the general public is only aware of the times he’s gotten his hand slapped. Nobody has any idea how many developments or experiments or trickery by Knaus and the Hendrick group have gotten through without a mention. What we do know is that teams complain often that they are chasing the Hendrick group in development. That’s good for Hendrick, which has built the top team in NASCAR through hard work, strong hires, loyalty, and a deep and devoted research and development program. But the Hendrick group also knows how to play the system, and it was the Hendrick cars that everyone was following last year in rear-end housing development. Eventually, when cars were so skewed it appeared they were crab-walking down the straightaways, NASCAR began to tighten the rules and add pages to the rule book that created a real line on the issue. The crackdown took months, though, and from Darlington through Michigan, when NASCAR issued its first bulletin on the matter, Hendrick drivers won four of five races. So now two-car Penske Racing, which won its first Cup championship after many years of trying last season, is apparently trying new things to gain similar advantages. Only NASCAR came down fast and furious in this instance, confiscating parts and raising the threat of penalties. It would be one thing if NASCAR made it clear the Penske guys were up to no good for weeks and had publicly warned them to clean up their act. Instead, all we’ve got to go on is Keselowski’s allegations, which seem to indicate that everything innovative or new that the Penske crew has presented over the last week or so has been rejected by NASCAR inspectors. If true, why is that? If true, how come the big team on top constantly gets to tinker with development that leaves everyone chasing them? Nobody is alleging Hendrick Motorsports gets away with anything it wants, and Knaus’ rap sheet is proof that NASCAR often deems he’s gone too far. But the mantra is the same year in and year out from all the other teams in the garage: “The Hendrick guys have found something and we’re just trying to catch up to it.” Should the Penske organization get hit with stiff penalties this week, then NASCAR needs to answer the what, why and how to help everyone understand exactly what is and isn’t “in the spirit of the rule.” • Jenna Fryer covers auto racing for The Associated Press.

With a fallen runner nearby, police officers react Monday to a second explosion at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

VIEWS

Tragedy strikes crown jewel By MIKE WISE The Washington Post You hear the race announcer calling out the names of finishers one second. The next – clearly audible – comes the blast, ripping through one side of the course, dropping a runner to the ground, killing at least three people, maiming so many more. “We’ve had an attack,” someone can be heard saying in the recorded footage. “Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God!” Of all places to ruin and end lives, literally yards from where so many of the more than 24,000 runners worked so hard to embrace a pure and noble goal – to run, and finish, a race. That’s why so many of us started running, putting one foot monotonously in front of the other, moving forward. Of all places to attack the majesty of the human spirit: at the finish line. The terrifying irony of the bloodshed Monday at the Boston Marathon: Almost nowhere can the epitome of endurance and resilience in a physical endeavor be found more than in the people who train and manage to run the race of the ancient Greeks – 26.2 miles. Beyond the sponsored elite and the runners for charity, the Boston Marathon is still the crown jewel for weekend endurance warriors, a test of resolve that only the world’s fastest qualifiers are allowed to run. The most painful thing I ever witnessed in sports was a young woman nearly 100 yards from the finish line of the 2006 Boston Marathon. I had come to see my best friend try to break four hours – a long-held goal of his – and was suddenly caught up in the drama of this woman in a blonde pigtail, no older than her mid-20s. Her legs began to

wobble, her neuromuscular system shutting down stride by stride, until she began to walk and, finally, fall. She lay there in a fetal position, bawling inconsolably, in the middle of the course. Runners whizzed past. One finally stopped, trying to help her to her feet. But she couldn’t make it. A golf cart eventually pulled up and medical personnel attended to her and whisked her away, less than 100 meters from her dream. We didn’t know her name, where she was from, what her story was. But bystanders wept because we knew the pain of not finishing what you started, coming so close to your goal and failing. If you told me there would be bloodied limbs and panicked screams on the same street in almost the exact same area, I wouldn’t have believed you – even in this post-9/11 world. But there are many others inside the running industry that worried all the time a day like Monday could happen. A longtime race official I know, who’s worked all five worldclass marathons (Boston, New York, London, Berlin and Chicago), told me this had been many organizers’ fear for years. “The one opening in the security planning for everybody were the fans; there is no way to screen your fans,” said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “You can screen your runners, volunteers, media and race officials – you can make them all produce proof that they are who they say they are – but if the arena of competition is a city’s streets, how do you possibly screen every person walking up to the race? You have to buy a ticket to get to the finish line area at many big races, but unfortunately anyone with money could procure one.”

Marathoners always talk about “managing your pain,” about their innate ability to endure physical suffering more than so many other people they know. It’s their rationale for so much torn cartilage and sore IT bands and plantar fascitis and stress fractures. From personal experience, having run four marathons, I know there are things worked out in your head on a run that cannot be worked out in a therapist’s office or a friend’s living room, a clarity only a physical journey can bestow. Putting in the miles, getting to a place of almost serenity and purpose in your running, can take you away from whatever was gnawing at you before you made the decision to put on your shoes and walk out the door. There is also something about defiance in finishing, like the members of the New Orleans track club, who wanted to withdraw from New York in 2005 after Katrina ruined their city and lives. But stronger than the water was their will to be visible demonstrations of fighting back, the way so many others ran for someone they lost after 9/11. For so many who ran, Boston on Monday afternoon was less about a race and more about a platform for so many courageous people to prove to themselves that life does go on, that closure is possible. And to violently intrude on that kind of healing, that perseverance – to layer on tragedy and grief and heartbreak on the day so many watching and running were trying to move past it – is so wrong and personally destructive it’s almost unspeakable. To hear, “The race is over. There is no alternate finish,” announced at about 4:06 p.m., hurt so much deeper than the pain of running 26.2 miles ever could.

Scott wins Masters for himself, Australia and for Norman AUGUSTA, Ga. – Greg Norman saw three Australians on the leaderboard at the Masters and had reason to believe more heartache was on the way. Adam Scott couldn’t make anything but pars, and Jason Day was losing ground, both three shots out of the lead going to the back nine at Augusta National. Marc Leishman was another shot behind, and that’s when Norman decided to step away. “I went to the gym at the turn because I was nervous,” Norman said Sunday night, euphoric over Scott’s playoff win in the Masters. “I got out of the gym in time for the last four holes. My son was with me, and my wife. The three of us were so into it. The mood swings, the conversations we were having, my texting, it was off the charts. I can only imagine how everyone else felt when I was playing.” Those times always ended with the wrong kind of tears. Each loss was another reminder that an Australian had never won the Masters, making it the holy grail of golf Down Under. Some of it was his own doing, such as the six-shot lead Norman famously lost to Nick Faldo in 1996. Some of it was cruel, no greater example than Larry

ON THE FRINGE Doug Ferguson Mize chipping in to beat him in a playoff in 1987. Norman finally made it to Butler Cabin, at least in spirit. “Australia is a proud sporting nation, and this was one notch in the belt that we never got,” Scott said before slipping on the green jacket. “Amazing that it came down to me, Marc and Jason Day. It could have been any of us. But there was one guy who inspired a nation of golfers, and that’s Greg Norman. He’s been incredible to me and all the young golfers in Australia. And part of this definitely belongs to him.” In most countries, a trophy is cherished because of the many tales of victory that go with it. The Masters became a big deal in Australia because of a string of defeats. “Look, I was a small part of it because I loved the Masters,” Norman said. “This is about Adam. Because of what I did, it created interest in the Masters, just as other players before me. I couldn’t get it across the line, and that increased the intensity. ‘Why

Adam Scott wears his green jacket after winning the Masters on Sunday in Augusta, Ga. couldn’t you win the Masters as the No. 1 player in the world?’ Adam deserved this. He’s been there. He served his penance in a lot of ways.” It was only nine months ago that Scott lost a four-shot lead with four holes to play in the British Open, closing with four bogeys to fall by one shot to Ernie Els. He vowed he would finish the job the next time he had a chance, and that he did. “Show everyone how much you want it,” Scott told himself before his 20-foot birdie putt swirled around the left side of the cup and

disappeared for a 3-under-par 69 and a one-shot lead. Angel Cabrera answered with one of the greatest shots on the 18th under the circumstances, firing a 7-iron to 3 feet to force the playoff. Two holes later, Scott called in caddie Steve Williams to help him read the putt in gathering darkness. Williams has caddied for Norman, Raymond Floyd and Tiger Woods at the Masters, and he knew it was faster and broke more than it looked. He told him to aim “two cups out,” and Scott drilled it.

And that it happened at the Masters made all the sweeter. “Sitting there watching Adam, I had a tear in my eye,” Norman said. “That’s what it was all about. It was Adam doing it for himself, and for the country.” Scott was as gracious in victory as he was in a wrenching loss last summer at Royal Lytham & St. Annes, which surprised no one. He has impeccable manners and treats everyone around him with respect. Norman noticed that when he first met Scott at age 15 and gave him a ride on his plane to a tournament. “He sat on my plane and talked and asked a lot of questions about me and about life,” Norman said. “I always had a lot of belief in Adam. I love this kid to death. He’s such a classy kid. He has a classic swing. I always knew destiny was going to be on his side.” It was Norman who gave Scott a short-game lesson in 2004 at The Players Championship, and Scott put that lesson to use with a pitch to 10 feet to win on the last hole. Scott leaned on Norman again at the British Open, holding his head high after a monumental collapse,

because that’s how the Shark always handled failure. “He was the best player in the world and he was an icon in Australia,” Scott said. “Everything about the way he handled himself was incredible to have as a role model. And just that was enough, but he’s devoted so much time to myself and other young Australian players who came after him. Incredibly generous. Most of us would feel that he could have slipped a green jacket on, for sure. “I said, ‘Part of this is for him’ because he’s given me so much time and inspiration and belief.” Norman was No. 1 for longer than anyone until Tiger Woods came along. Australia golf was booming when he was on top and while the circuit is a shell of what it was, Ogilvy couldn’t help but notice Norman’s impact even today. “We had three of the top four in the Masters today,” Ogilvy said. “That’s directly because we had the No. 1 player in the world and he was contending in the Masters. With Adam, there’s the potential for that effect.” • Doug Ferguson covers golf for The Associated Press.

Stopping Rx abuse starts at home Jo-Ellen Abou Nader, senior director of Express Scripts’ Fraud, Waste and Abuse program, offers some do’s and don’ts to reduce the risk of drug fraud and abuse: Keep track of your treatments: Keep a list of the medications in your home, especially those prone to abuse. Periodically count the medications remaining in the container and make sure that it’s the correct amount according to the prescribed dosage. Dispose properly: If specific disposal instructions are provided on the label, follow them. Otherwise, remove the medication from their original containers or vials, mix them with an undesirable substance such as used coffee grounds, kitty litter or saw dust and place them in a sealable bag that can be disposed in the trash. Also, take advantage of the DEA Drug Take-Back Day on April 27. Don’t save for next time: Once your condition has been treated and your prescription regimen complete, properly dispose of the drugs. Don’t share your medicine: The specific drug and dosage was selected specifically for the person it was prescribed for and could lead to dangerous drug interactions and serious side effects if used by someone else.

NEW RESEARCH

Isolation and lifespan A study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has found that social isolation can lead to a shorter lifespan for older patients. Even participants in the study who were happy in their isolation are more likely to die prematurely. This has led researchers to believe it is lack of human contact, and not feelings of loneliness, that cause the shortened lifespan. However, because loneliness is difficult to define for scientific purposes, scientists cannot give definitive answers.

Are you or someone you know abusing alcohol? BRANDPOINT How much alcohol is too much? According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, at-risk drinking, for men, is more than four drinks in any one day or more than 14 drinks per week. For women, it is more than three drinks in a day or more than seven drinks per week. However, for some individuals, any drinking can be problematic: Women who are pregnant, people with certain health conditions or on particular medications, or those with a family history of alcohol abuse. There are signs to watch for that indicate your drinking is bordering on being a problem – even if they only happen once in a year: n Drinking to calm nerves, for-

get worries or boost a sad mood. n Guilt about drinking. n Unsuccessful attempts to cut down/stop drinking. n Lying about or hiding drinking habits. n Causing harm to oneself or someone else as a result of drinking. n Needing to drink increasingly greater amounts in order to achieve the desired effect. n Feeling irritable, resentful or unreasonable when not drinking. n Medical, social, family or financial problems caused by drinking. An anonymous screening for alcohol abuse is available at www. howdoyouscore.org. By answering a series of questions, people can get a good idea of whether they are showing symptoms of an

alcohol problem. “Alcohol is widely used, and yet so many people don’t understand their own drinking habits and whether they might be headed for trouble,” said Dr. Douglas G. Jacobs, associate clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and medical director of Screening for Mental Health Inc. “Research indicates that screening and brief intervention can help resolve mild to moderate alcohol problems as well as encourage those with more serious problems to seek treatment.”

Other resources The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services offers an extensive listing of licensed,

certified drug and alcohol treatment facilities. You can access the database in two ways: n Use SAMHSA’s Substance Abuse Treatment Facility Locator, http://findtreatment.samhsa. gov/ n Call the referral helpline operated by SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment: 1-800-662-HELP; 1-800-662-9832 (Español); 1-800-228-0427 (TDD) Another place to look is your State Substance Abuse Agency. States often have their own listings, toll-free hot lines and information about accreditation. You can also ask your doctor or therapist about programs they recommend. n Alcoholics Anonymous: www.aa.org/ n Women for Sobriety: http:// womenforsobriety.org/beta2.

HEALTH TIP

Benefits of cooking your own meals Instead of buying frozen or boxed meals, cook meals from scratch. You can make extra to take for lunches and use for leftovers. It may take some extra planning upfront, but there are many blogs dedicated to sharing clean, homemade recipes that will fit into your busy schedule. Extra bonus: Avoiding processed foods and cooking from scratch can save you lots of money in the long run.

Scoliosis treatment is highly individualized A recent article updated information regarding scoliosis – curvature of the spine of more than 10 degrees. There are various types of scoliosis. One form called congenital scoliosis is due to an abnormality of the vertebrae. As the child grows, the curve can become worse, making it more difficult to treat. Neuromuscular scoliosis is associated with certain neurological abnormalities such as muscular dystrophy or spasticity. Scoliosis is also associated with certain diseases such as Marfan syndrome or neurofibromatosis.

VIEWS Dr. Murray Feingold However, most of the time the cause of the scoliosis is unknown, and this is called idiopathic scoliosis. This type of scoliosis is the most common form and is present in about 2 percent of all adolescents. Fortunately, the majority of times, the curve does not increase to the extent that involved treatment is necessary. Girls are more likely to

develop scoliosis than boys. First-degree relatives of individuals with scoliosis are at a greater risk of also developing scoliosis. Adolescents should be examined for curvature of the spine at the child’s routine visit to his or her doctor. There are also school-based screening examinations to detect scoliosis. Studies thus far have not shown that such screening examinations result in improved outcomes. The amount of the scoliosis curve is measured in degrees. When the curve progresses to 25 degrees, bracing is usually done. If the curve reaches 45 degrees, surgery

is recommended. Severe scoliosis can impede normal breathing. At times, pain may be present, but it is usually mild. The article stated nonoperative treatments such as “physical therapy, electrical stimulation and chiropractic treatment have been proposed but supporting data are lacking from controlled studies.” Surgery to correct scoliosis is frequently complex. It can involve fusion of the some of the vertebrae and insertion of metallic implants. Children usually return to school one to two months after surgery. The most common compli-

cation is infection. Since there are so many factors and issues involved in scoliosis, the manner in which a child is treated is a very individualistic one. This requires discussions between the patient, parents and the orthopedic surgeon.

Yes, you might as well jump

Reality TV stars turn rivalry into workouts

Jumping ideal for learning to dunk or as full-body workout By LENNY BERNSTEIN The Washington Post By the time you’ve reached my age, your jumping days are pretty much over. Kids jump (and always appear to have a good time doing it). We adults use step-stools and ladders on those rare occasions when we must leave the ground. Admittedly, little daylight passed between the bottoms of my shoes and the floor even in my younger days, when I played a lot of pickup basketball in high school and college. I’ve been thick-legged and earthbound since I can remember, conditions that have only grown worse as I’ve reached my mid-50s. Nevertheless, in honor of the young men recently skywalking across my big screen in the NCAA Tournament, I decided to determine whether my vertical challenges are immutable or might be addressed by the right kind of training. That’s sort of how I came to meet Brandon Todd. Todd had e-mailed me just a week or two earlier, trying to interest me in writing about his prowess in this area. At 5-foot-5, 205 pounds and 27 years old, Todd can still dunk easily, something he says he has been doing since he was an adolescent. “That’s so yesterday,” I wrote back, or words to that effect. Five-foot-seven-inch Spud Webb won the NBA slam dunk contest way back in 1986, and 5-foot-9-inch Nate Robinson has won it three times. If Todd really wanted to prove his merit, I told him, he should show he can get a 55-year-old overweight man into the air. At first he thought I was kidding. “I’m positive I can get you two, three inches,” he wrote. “At least four [or] five sheets of computer paper.” Once I persuaded him I was serious, he leapt at the chance. “I could def get you inches!!” he wrote back, and we were on. Spoiler alert: My threehour-long sessions with Todd were not enough to

You don’t know squat

By MAGGIE FAZELI FARD The Washington Post

Physical trainer Brandon Todd is big on squats. His go-to training move is the reverse squat. Give it a try: • Squat and put your finger tips on the floor between your feet. • Keep your fingertips on the floor as you straighten your legs and lift your rear end as high as possible. • Repeat 20 times, and you’ll feel a burn in your hamstrings. provide a fair test of his expertise, so we didn’t measure my vertical leap before and after. But they were enough to trash the lower half of my body and my lower back – in that good way you feel after a completely exhausting workout. There is no magic trick that will turn you into Dr. Dunkenstein. It’s all about hard work and natural gifts. But jumping is a terrific, full-body exercise. “You use your arm swing. You use your core. You use your glutes. You use your hamstrings. You use your quads. You use the tendons around your ankles,” Todd said. “It’s almost like swimming.” Almost. But in the pool you don’t jump 20 times holding an 8-pound medicine ball over your head, do single-leg step-ups, leg extensions and contractions, burpees, squat jumps, deep squats and reverse squats. Todd is big on squats. His go-to training move is the reverse squat. I must have done a couple hundred of those over three workouts that reduced me to a panting, sweaty mess. If you’d like to try this, squat and put your finger tips on the floor between your feet. Keep them on the floor as you straighten your legs and lift your rear end as high as possible. Do that 20 times and you’ll feel a burn in your hamstrings that will remind you how little you use those muscles in everyday life. Todd says he has been “obsessed” with jumping since he was a child. “Short

“Donkey Booty” vs. “Stallion Booty” Let the battle of the booties begin. With “Phine Body” by Phaedra Parks and “Booty Boot Camp” by Kenya Moore, two “Real Housewives of Atlanta” stars have moved their cable rivalry to DVD with the release of exercise programs that promise butt-blasting results. Phaedra Parks famously asked Kenya Moore, her BFFturned-nemesis on the Bravo reality show, to produce her “Donkey Booty” fitness DVD. After a falling-out, Moore announced she was working on a project of her own, dubbed “Stallion Booty.” Neither of the DVD names stuck, but both workouts promise firmer backsides – and a dose of two of cable’s most outspoken personalities. Parks’ “Phine Body” program includes two 60-minute discs, which can be purchased separately and are led by Parks’ husband. Moore’s “Booty Boot Camp” consists of three 20-minute workouts on one DVD. Led by pro trainer Nikki Veal, the exercises are a combination of traditional and some risque moves with such names as “Booty Pop” and “Stallion Giddy-Up.” Neither DVD is groundbreaking in terms of fitness, but fans of the reality stars are unlikely to notice or care. ••••••

(He also works at another facility in Silver Spring, Md.) As a kid, Todd bought every junk science and snake-oil program that promised to improve his leaping ability, but he didn’t have his epiphany until, by chance, he happened to see video of an Eastern Bloc weightlifter jumping for joy after a suc-

Friend’s unwanted celebration makes birthday an unhappy one Dear Abby: I was raised a person’s birthday is his or her day to do whatever he or she wants, but my wishes are being ignored by a close friend I’ll call Wade. For the past 10 years I have ignored my birthday and tried to avoid all celebrations. I’ll take a vacation alone and have a great time. My family understands how I feel and gives me no grief. I met Wade five years ago. He’s a co-worker who has become a good friend. Wade has made it his goal in life to make me celebrate my birthday. I have tried being nice about the presents and even a surprise birthday party one year, but I really prefer to be left alone. I never told him my birth date. He had access to HR records and found out on his own. He says I am “rude” for not letting him celebrate my birthday. Other than this issue, he’s a great guy. Advice, Abby? – Nonobservant In Florida Dear Nonobservant: Wade may be a “great guy,” but he appears to be insensitive when it comes to respecting the feelings of others. Before your next birthday, “remind” him you prefer not to celebrate or acknowledge it. A good friend should listen and respect the other person’s wishes instead of trying to impose his or her will, and don’t

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips be shy about saying so. Dear Abby: I am one of four sisters. Two of my sisters, their husbands and I want to plan a trip to Italy. We do not want to include our fourth sister and her husband. None of us like him or can forgive how he abused her in the past. For her sake, we tolerate him at family gatherings and holidays, but none of us want to be with him for an extended period. We also don’t think his health would allow him to do a lot of the things we want to do on this vacation. How do we plan this trip while excluding our sister and her husband without hurting her feelings or causing a big family blowup? Should we just not mention it? Or should we tell her she’s invited but not her husband? Please advise. – Sis In A Pickle Dear Sis: Secrets like this have a way of getting out. It might be a slip of the tongue by one of your sisters or their husbands, or some other relative who knows about the trip. Surely your sister knows how you all feel about her husband, so it won’t be a shock if you tell her she is invited but he is not. Under the

circumstances, I doubt if she will join you, and there will probably be hurt feelings. But sneaking this past her would be like trying to smuggle dawn past a rooster, and I don’t think it would be long before she finds out anyway. Dear Abby: My husband and I have been married for nine years. I worked until 2010, and then quit to be a stay-athome mom to our two small children. Because I no longer work, I watch what I spend, but my husband never lets me forget he is the wage earner. When I want to spend money, he always says, “What’s in it for me?” or, “What do I get?” I feel like this degrades me. Why does he do this to me? – Stay-At-Home Mom In

Georgia Dear Stay-At-Home Mom: Your husband may say it because he feels stressed or resentful he is the sole wage earner now. The first time it happened, you should have responded that “what’s in it for him” is that his children have a full-time mother, which the majority of children today don’t have, and “what he gets” out of it are offspring who have a mother rather than a caregiver raising them.

cessful lift. The guy must have weighed 300 pounds, Todd recalls, and was probably 40 inches in the air. That’s when he realized what it was going to take to get way up. He began reading everything he could about jumping workouts and eventually cobbled together his own program. Todd says he first dunked at 13, when he was 5-foot-2. He played high

school ball and starred at Division III Muskingum College in Ohio. Then he became a physical trainer, with a specialty in jumping. Todd told me that, with only a little variation, he would have put me through similar training if I had told him my goal was to become a better football player, baseball player or golfer. “We create explosion, endurance and quickness,” he said, “which is deadly in any sport.”

Eating carbs with dinner might help you slim down, but don’t overdo it One of the most pervasive diet tips may be getting turned on its head, according to new research. Self reports in its April issue eating carbs at night doesn’t necessarily spell disaster for the waistline. A study in the journal Obesity found that people who followed a low-calorie diet with carbohydrates eaten mostly at dinner had higher levels of leptin, a hormone associated with feelings of satisfaction and appetite suppression, than dieters who did not. Additionally, the dieters who ate the carbs lost more weight.

Plantar fasciitis usually gets better on its own Dear Dr. K: I have plantar fasciitis. Can I use a drugstore product to treat it? Or should I see a doctor? Dear Reader: Plantar fasciitis is heel pain caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a ligament-like structure that runs from your heel to the ball of your foot. (I’ve put an illustration on my website.) Plantar fasciitis can happen when too much pressure or strain is placed on the plantar fascia. Plantar fasciitis causes pain under your heel when you first get out of bed. The pain may ease as you walk around, only to return later in the day. Try to always walk in shoes that have good heel support, even when you first get out of bed (have shoes, not slippers, at the bedside). If you have to walk on very hard surfaces, such as a concrete floor, use shoes that have softer, compressible heels and soles. If such shoes give only partial relief, consider buying “orthopedic” shoes that have extra sole and heel supports. Such shoes may not be fashionable, but forget fashion for a while. Plantar fasciitis usually goes away on its own, but it can take six weeks to 12 months. To treat your heel

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff pain, start with stretching exercises and over-the-counter products and medications. Try this stretching exercise right now: Sit in a chair with the non-painful foot on the floor and the ankle of the painful foot on your knee. Gently pull the toes on your painful foot back until you feel a stretch in the sole. At the same time, gently massage the stretched plantar fascia with your other hand. Hold for 10 seconds. When pain first occurs, rest a few days, gently stretch your foot and apply ice. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) will help reduce swelling and ease pain. Over-the-counter cushion inserts and supportive low-heeled (not flat) shoes will ease pressure on your heels. If you’re still in pain after six to eight weeks, consult a foot-care specialist. He or she may recommend physical therapy, night splints, or a steroid injection to reduce pain and inflammation. When all else fails and the symptoms persist, some doctors will recommend sur-

gery. To my knowledge, there are few scientific studies showing any kind of surgical procedure helps. Surgery also can cause nerve damage that may lead to lasting or recurring pain. Some foot specialists have started using shock wave therapy to treat plantar fasciitis. During this treatment, high-energy sound waves are directed at the painful part of your plantar fascia. The technique is similar to the one used to break up kidney stones, but in this case, not enough energy is used to break up the heel bone. Study results have been mixed, and this remains a controversial area. Some doctors recommend botulinum toxin (Botox) treatments, and others radiation treatment. There isn’t enough evidence of benefit to recommend either treatment, except as part of a scientific study. In my experience, the simpler approaches I’ve recommended, plus the passage of time, seem to improve the symptoms of plantar fasciitis.

HOROSCOPE

TODAY - The year ahead could bring about growth in your material hopes and expectations. Several advantageous opportunities could develop in unexpected quarters. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- To achieve some of your bigger objectives, you might have to do things in a circuitous way. Just be sure not to charge into walls, hoping they will crumble on impact. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Argumentative individuals will frustrate you, but the solution is obvious. Don’t involve yourself with companions who overreact to a difference of opinions. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Take nothing for granted in both your commercial and personal dealings. If you play things too loose, you might think you have an agreement, when all you’ve got is a maybe. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- To get along well with someone who is pertinent to your plans, it might be necessary for you to make some concessions. Failing to do so could bring things to a halt. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- When sharing a job with others, be sure that no one person has more work to do than the others. Each must do his or her share. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Be prepared to operate on your own if it becomes necessary. A friend upon whom you can usually depend might let you down. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Be a good sport and pick up all the pieces after someone’s temper tantrum. This person needs to be consoled, not chastised. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- It’s rarely a good idea to get angry with someone just because he or she disagrees with you. It’s important to keep an open mind and a forgiving heart. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Guard against inclinations to suddenly change course, especially when your goal is within reach. A shift in direction will do nothing except take you off track. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If you are not successful, it isn’t due to a lack of good ideas. Although your imagination is excellent, your implementation might not be. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Be careful that you do not trip over your own shoelaces. The only obstacles in your path are the ones you put there yourself. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If it’s up to you to make plans for a get-together with friends, give thought to who is involved. Don’t invite anyone who hasn’t been getting along with everyone else.

And sometimes you have to go for any chance that you have. In this deal, West has to decide what to do when defending against one notrump. He leads his fourthhighest diamond. South takes East’s nine with his king and plays the spade queen. West ducks, but is in with his ace at trick three. What should West do now? An aggressive East would have made a threeclub weak jump overcall on the irst round. Then South would probably have made a negative double, giving North a headache. The winning action would have been to pass, which would have netted 100 or 300. If East had balanced over one no-trump with a two-club bid, South would presumably have continued with two spades, which would have probably ended down one after the diamond-nine lead from East.

Who has the diamond jack? It must be South -- do not be fooled by his falsecard at trick one. East was playing third hand high and the best he could do was the nine. Similarly, South has the diamond ace, giving South 10 high-card points. So, if West leads another diamond, South must take at least nine tricks. The only chance for the defense is to run the clubs. West must shift to his club king and continue with his second club. Here, East and West take one spade and six clubs for down one.
