Candidates disclose contributions DeKalb mayor hopefuls spent $42K combined for chance at seat By DAVID THOMAS dthomas@shawmedia.com DeKALB – John Rey, Jennifer Groce, Mike Verbic and David Jacobson spent at least $42,000 combined in their efforts to capture the DeKalb mayoral seat. Rey won the election with 1,500 votes, spending at least $11,000 in the process. According to reports filed with the Illinois State Board of Elections, Rey spent about $7.33 for each vote, Groce spent about $10.80,

Verbic spent about $10.16, and Jacobson spent $9.81 per vote. Candidates for office in Illinois, regardless of the level, are required to disclose contributions and expenditures to the Illinois State Board of Elections. Contributions of $1,000 or more must be reported within five business days, or two business days if it’s 30 days before an election. Candidates can choose to report quarterly or twice a year.

Jacobson spent in April are due July 15. Verbic already submitted his reports showing his April spending. A candidate’s political committee can receive up to $5,300 from an

individual, $10,500 from a corporation, labor organization or association, or $52,600 from a political action committee or another candidate’s political committee. Rey raised $14,615.34 between Oct. 1 and March 31. His strongest supporter was someone who encouraged him to run: Richard Katz, the president of Resource Bank. Katz contributed $1,250 to his campaign. “He strongly endorsed my going for that office,” Rey said.

During this same period of time, Rey spent $11,088.72. He highlighted his spending of $1,813.73 at Le Print Express in Sycamore for various printed materials as being effective. He also spent $2,635.88 on signs and another $2,713 in various media. “How do I get my name and platform out in front,” Rey said. He had $3,526.62 in his campaign war chest by the end of the closing period March 31.

HONORING EARTH DAY

DISCOVERING NEW CREATIONS

Celebration becomes weeklong event in DeKalb By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Green was not the only color of Earth Day at the Midwest Museum of Natural History. Yellow, red, blue and colors of all kinds filled the Sycamore-based museum Sunday as children were shown how to melt their broken crayons into colorful new creations. The activity was one of many the museum hosted over the weekend to show people the importance of reusing and recycling materials as part of the Earth Day initiative. Philip Krepel, who helped attendees make their new and improved crayons Sunday, said Earth Day is a great opportunity for the museum to reach out to the community and deliver its message of preservation. “It really fits with what the museum is all about,” he said of Earth Day. “We use it as a fun way to show people how to reuse what’s lying around the house.” David Fitzpatrick, who attended the event with his two daughters and their friend, said the crayon melt was a fun way to teach important lessons of recycling and preservation.

BOSTON – As churches paused to mourn the dead and console the survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing Sunday, the city’s police commissioner said the two suspects had such a large cache of weapons that they were probably planning other attacks. After the two brothers engaged in a gun battle with police early Friday, authorities surveying the scene of the shootout found it was loaded with unexploded homemade bombs. They also found more than 250 rounds of ammunition. Police Commissioner Ed Davis said the stockpile was “as dangerous as it gets in urban policing.” “We have reason to believe, based upon the evidence that was found at that scene – the explosions, the explosive ordnance that was unexploded and the firepower that they had – that they were going to attack other individuals. That’s my belief at this point.” Davis told CBS’s “Face the Nation.” On “Fox News Sunday,” he said authorities cannot be positive there aren’t more explosives that haven’t been found. But the people of Boston are safe, he insisted. The suspects are two ethnic Chechen brothers from southern Russia – 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan. Their motive remained unclear. The older brother was killed during a getaway attempt. The younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, remained hospitalized in serious condition Sunday after his capture Friday from a tarp-covered boat in a suburban Boston backyard. Authorities would not comment on whether he had been questioned, but several officials have said Tsarnaev’s injuries left him unable to communicate, at least for now. Shots were fired from the boat, but investigators haven’t determined where the gunfire was aimed, Davis said. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is tracing the weapons to try to determine how they were obtained by the suspects.

Orbital Sciences Corp.’s Antares rocket lifts off Sunday from the NASA facility on Wallops Island, Va. The rocket will eventually deliver supplies to the International Space Station.

Rocket that will carry cargo ship launched By BROCK VERGAKIS The Associated Press ATLANTIC, Va. – A company contracted by NASA to deliver supplies to the International Space Station successfully launched a rocket Sunday in a test of its ability to send a cargo ship aloft. About 10 minutes after the launch from Wallops Island on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, Orbital Sciences Corp. of Dulles declared the test a success after observing a practice payload reach orbit and safely separate from the rocket. The Sunday launch comes after two previous attempts were scrubbed. A data cord that was connected to the rocket’s second stage came loose just minutes before the rocket was set to lift off Friday, and company officials said they were easily able to fix the problem. A second attempt Saturday was scrubbed because of wind. The company from the Washington suburb of Dulles was one of two, along with California-based competitor SpaceX, chosen to supply the space station after NASA ended its three-decadeold shuttle program in 2011. The space agency turned to private companies for the job, saying it would focus on getting manned flights to asteroids and to Mars. SpaceX was awarded a $1.6 billion contract by NASA in 2006 to make a dozen missions to restock the space station. Orbital got into the mix in 2008 when it

was awarded a $1.9 billion contract for eight deliveries. “We’ve been playing catch up, but we’re about caught up,” Frank Culbertson, executive vice president and general manager of Orbital’s Advanced Programs Group, said Tuesday. “By the end of next year we should have an additional four or five cargo missions under our belt, so we’re going to be moving fast.” SpaceX has connected with the space station three times. This summer, Orbital plans to launch a rocket carrying its Cygnus cargo ship to see whether it can safely dock with the space station. During the scheduled demonstration flight, the cargo ship would carry about 1,600 pounds of supplies. Those supplies aren’t part of the company’s contract. But the company agreed to ferry supplies since it was already going there much like SpaceX did on its first demonstration flight in May 2012, when it dropped off 1,000 pounds of food, clothes, batteries and other provisions. Orbital is under contract to deliver about 44,000 pounds of supplies to the space station and plans to make about two deliveries per year. Its cargo ship will carry about 4,400 pounds worth of supplies on each of its first three missions and 5,600 pounds on its last five. Unlike the SpaceX’s Dragon capsule,

the Orbital cargo ship is not designed to return with experiments or other items from the space station. Instead, plans call for filling the Cygnus ship with garbage that would be incinerated with the vessel upon reentry into Earth’s atmosphere. That’s also what Russian, European and Japanese cargo ships do. Orbital had hoped to begin its rocket launches under the commercial resupply program in 2011, but faced a series of delays. That included a delay in the completion of its launch pad at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on the Virginia coast. That pad was built specifically for Orbital and is owned by the Virginia Commercial Space Flight Authority. The pad wasn’t delivered to the company until October. NASA, meanwhile, is looking to private companies to start sending astronauts to the space station in coming years. Orbital is not in the running for that work though SpaceX, based in Hawthorne, Calif., is working to modify its Dragon capsules to transport astronauts. A handful of U.S. companies are competing for that assignment. Until then, U.S. astronauts are hitching rides to the International Space Station on Russian Soyuz rockets. Sunday’s launch drew scores of onlookers to Wallops Island’s visitor center on the mainland several miles away, where people set up blankets and camp chairs near marshland to view the launch.

BAGA, Nigeria – Officials say fighting between Nigeria’s military and Islamic extremists in a town in the nation’s northeast has killed at least 185 people. Lawan Kole, a local government official in Baga, told Borno state officials on a visit Sunday that the killings started Friday night and went on for hours. Kole told state officials that at least 185 bodies had been buried, and people continued to search for the dead. Brig. Gen. Austin Edokpaye told officials that the extremists used heavy machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades. Edokpaye said extremists used civilians as human shields during the fighting – implying that soldiers opened fire in neighborhoods where they knew civilians lived.

Fighting to find a cure Old Fat Guy Idol raises breast cancer awareness By ANDREA AZZO editorial@daily-chronicle.com WATERMAN – Saturday was one of the busiest nights for Pub West bar in Waterman. Waiters and bartenders worked frantically to serve their customers. The customers were all there for the same reason: to support the fight against breast cancer. Three old high school friends – Larry Meredith, Chuck Wesenberg and Bob Strausberger – participated in a singing competition called Old Fat Guy Idol. All proceeds went toward the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Meredith helped raise money because he is walking in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day For the Cure, which is a 60-mile journey in August that takes place over three days. It costs $2,390 for an individual to participates. “Larry is dead set trying to find a cure for this nasty disease,” Strausberger said. “I’m going to jump on board and try to help him the best I can. They would have done the same for me.” The event raised about $4,441, which is $700 less than last year, said Lisa Youngdahl, event organizer. Meredith said he will use the extra money they raised to help fund other walkers’ journeys. “If it means other people can’t walk, then why should I keep the money?” he said. The three singers each sang three songs, then sang together in the final round. Buckets with each singer’s name were placed in front of the stage so people could choose who their favorite was throughout the night. Strausberger won the competition, meaning he raised the most money. He also won last year. The singers performed with a band, whose members traveled as far as Michigan to play for free. It is the only gig the band does together all year, Wesenberg said. “The band has put in 10 times the amount of hours than we have,” Strausberger said. “They drove hours and hours and hours.” DeKalb resident Pat Herrmann appreciated how many people donated their time and money for no benefit of their own, he said.

The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – Lawmaking at the state Capitol often goes like this: Legislators talk up a bill or idea until the final days – or hours – of the session, when suddenly a deal is made behind closed doors, then emerges for a vote and no one has a chance to read the bill. But this year, faced with bitter divisions over guns and state pensions, House Speaker Michael Madigan resorted to a rarely-used tactic that does the opposite. He has called weekly sessions to laboriously address each and every proposal on dealing with the two controversial issues, debating and voting on each amendment piece by piece. The idea was to engage in deeper discussions early on, rebut concerns about a closeddoor process and gauge where lawmakers were on even the smallest of aspects. Madigan and others point to success, including some movement on the pension issue. But critics say the process was directionless, ate up time, and now appears to have evaporated as a strategy without moving Illinois that much closer to solutions. While Democrats say it was aimed at making lawmakers more accountable about where they stand on

Larry Meredith performs Saturday during Old Fat Guy Idol at Pub West in Waterman. The event raised funds for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. “There are no losers here tonight,” Herrmann said. “That’s the beautiful thing.” Each woman who entered the bar received a pink rose made of balsam wood. Strausberger’s wife, Karin, passed them out to people. The roses each had a ribbon tied to them, which Karin Strausberger tied herself. The ribbons had the symbol of breast cancer, a pink ribbon, printed on them. There also was a raffle for the event. People could win a

issues, Republicans fear it was aimed more at forcing them to make uncomfortable votes on sensitive issues, which could haunt them at election time. “The word that comes to mind is almost a joke. Both pensions and guns have become extremely convoluted,” said Pecatonica Rep. Jim Sacia, a former FBI agent. “Anybody with an idea could throw their amendment on [a bill], though it might be totally conflicting,” Madigan, head of the state Democratic Party, has deemed the so-called “Weekly Order of Business” debates a success. Late last month, House members approved a measure to address Illinois’ nearly $100 billion in pension debt, including provisions to delay and reduce retired employees’ cost-of-living increases. He and Democratic Rep. Elaine Nekritz of Northbrook, who has been at the center of pension talks, say that all House members got a crash course in pensions. “We had a good airing of both sides of the issue,” said Steve Brown, Madigan’s spokesman. “All too often people, especially the minority party, will complain, ‘We don’t know this [debate or vote] is going to happen.’ You’ve got two pretty complex, somewhat emotionally charged, issues that seemed to lend itself to this sort of approach.”

range of prizes from baked treats to free zumba classes. Jeff Hart brought his pink tractor to the event. He painted the tractor pink because his mom and his friend’s mom both had breast cancer. Hart’s tractor participates in tractor pulls, and the money he makes also goes to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Youngdahl said she researched the foundation because of the recent controversy. The Susan G. Komen Foundation eliminated financing

breast cancer screening run by Planned Parenthood last year, which upset some people. “They put a lot of money for preventative services and screenings where people don’t have a lot of money to do it,” Youngdahl said. People can still donate to Meredith’s cause. Go to www. oldfatguyidol.com and click on “Vote Online.” Since the voting has closed, it doesn’t matter who you vote for. All proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Rockford airport notes busiest month ever ROCKFORD – The addition of flights to sunny Florida helped a northern Illinois airport record its busiest month ever

this spring. Chicago Rockford International Airport in Rockford served 35,453 passengers in March. That surpassed the airport’s previous record of 33,333 passengers set in March 2012. In a statement, airport Director Mike Dunn said new Allegiant Air service to Ft. Myers, Fla., helped boost the numbers. So did Apple Vacations routes to places such as Cancun, Mexico. The airport is served by three airlines: Allegiant, Apple Vacations and Frontier Airlines.

Former Chicago mayor at Great Lakes event MARQUETTE, Mich. – Long-serving ex-Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley is visiting Michigan in June to address a conference on regional cooperation to protect the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River system environment. The Mining Journal said Daley will give the keynote address at the 10th annual conference of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative. The nonprofit coalition focuses on protecting and restoring the water system. The conference runs June 1921 in the Upper Peninsula city. Daley’s speech is June 20.

Ill. woman arrested 396 times since 1978 CHICAGO – A Chicago woman has been arrested at least 396 times since 1978, including 92 times for theft and an alleged attack on a City Council member. Shermain Miles, 51, was arrested 65 times for disorderly conduct and 59 times for crimes related to prostitution, among other things, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. She has used at least 83 different aliases and is well known among merchants and residents in several neighborhoods on Chicago’s North Side. One florist called police about her 25 times last summer. Miles, who is homeless, is imprisoned at the Logan Correctional Center in Lincoln. She was arrested last year after allegedly chasing down Chicago Alderman James Cappleman, which is a possible parole violation after a 2010 conviction for robbing a 75-year-old at knifepoint.

Docs say don’t take cinnamon challenge By LINDSEY TANNER The Associated Press CHICAGO – Don’t take the cinnamon challenge. That’s the advice from doctors in a new report about a dangerous prank depicted in popular YouTube videos but which has led to hospitalizations and a surge in calls to U.S. poison centers. The fad involves daring someone to swallow a spoonful of ground cinnamon in 60 seconds without water. But the spice is caustic, and trying to gulp it down can cause choking, throat irritation, breathing trouble and even collapsed lungs, the report said. Published online Monday in Pediatrics, the report said at least 30 teens nationwide needed medical attention after taking the challenge last year. The number of poison control center calls about teens doing the prank “has increased dramatically,” from 51 in 2011 to 222 last year, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers. “People with asthma or other respiratory conditions are at greater risk of having this result in shortness of breath and trouble breathing,” according to an alert posted on the association’s website. Thousands of YouTube videos depict kids attempting the challenge, resulting in an “orange burst of dragon breath” spewing out of their mouths and sometimes hysterical laughter from friends watching the stunt, said report co-author Dr. Steven E. Lipshultz, a pediatrics professor at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. Cinnamon is made from tree bark and contains cellulose fibers that don’t easily break down. Animal research suggests that when cinnamon gets into the lungs, it can cause scarring, Lipshultz said. Dr. Stephen Pont, a spokesman for the American Academy of Pediatrics and an Austin, Texas pediatrician, said the report is “a call to arms to parents and doctors to be aware of things like the cinnamon challenge” and to pay attention to what their kids are viewing online. An Ypsilanti, Mich., teen who was hospitalized for a collapsed lung after trying the cinnamon challenge heartily supports the new advice and started her own website – http://nocinnamonchallenge. com – telling teens to “just say no” to the fad. Dejah Reed, 16, said she took the challenge four times – the final time was in February last year with a friend who didn’t want to try it alone. “I was laughing very hard and I coughed it out and I inhaled it into my lungs,” she said. “I couldn’t breathe.” Her father, Fred Reed, said he arrived home soon after to find Dejah “a pale bluish color. It was very terrifying. I threw her over my shoulder” and drove to a nearby emergency room. Dejah was hospitalized for four days and went home with an inhaler and said she still has to use it when she gets short of breath from running or talking too fast. Her dad said she’d never had asthma or breathing problems before.

Rivers crest across Midwest The ASSOCIATED PRESS CLARKSVILLE, Mo. – Those fighting floods in several communities along the Mississippi River were mostly successful Sunday despite the onslaught of water, but an ominous forecast and the growing accumulation of snow in the upper Midwest tempered any feelings of victory. The surging Mississippi was at or near crest at several places from the Quad Cities south to near St. Louis – some reaching 10-12 feet above flood stage. Problems were plentiful: Hundreds of thousands of acres of swamped farmland as planting season approaches; three people died; roads and bridges closed, including sections of major highways like U.S. 61 in Iowa and Missouri and crossings at Quincy, and Louisiana, Mo. The U.S. Coast Guard said 114 barges broke loose near St. Louis on Saturday night, and four hit the Jefferson Barracks Bridge in St. Louis County. The bridge was closed about six hours for inspection but reopened around 8 a.m. Sunday. Most of the runaway barges were corralled, but at least 10 sank and two others were unaccounted for, Coast Guard Lt. Colin Fogarty said. Two of the confirmed flood-related deaths occurred near the same spot in Indiana; another was in Missouri. In all three cases, vehicles were swept off the road in flash floods. High water could be responsible for two more, both in Illinois, where a decomposed body was found Thursday in an Oak Brook creek and a body was found Saturday in the Mississippi River at Cora. Investigations continue. The danger is far from

Pat Quinn addresses flooding concerns throughout the state, during a news conference Saturday along the Fox River in North Aurora. over, as spots south of St. Louis aren’t expected to crest until late this week. Significant flooding is possible in places such as Ste. Genevieve, Mo., Cape Girardeau, Mo., and Cairo. Adding to concern is a forecast that calls for heavy rain Monday night and Tuesday throughout much of the Midwest. National Weather Service meteorologist Julie Phillipson said an inch of rain is likely in many places, some places even more. Rain is projected from Wisconsin through Missouri. “That’s not what we want to see when we have this kind of flooding, that’s for sure,” Phillipson said. Harley-Davidson riders and bicyclists zipped through Grafton, Ill., a tourist town 40 miles north of St. Louis, many pausing to snap pictures of the swollen river. Floodwaters were lapping against the side of Grafton’s Artisan Village, a flea market-type business for artists. Owner Marty Harp, 53, sipped a Miller Lite as he cast a wary eye to the sky. “If we can hold off the crest and it doesn’t rain for a couple of days, it’ll be OK,” Harp said. But anxiety looms regarding the heavy snow the

northern Midwest has received this month and what happens when it melts and makes its way into tributaries of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers. Forecasters said up to 6 inches of new snow was possible in the Black Hills area of South Dakota through Monday morning. Hundreds of miles to the southeast, in La Grange, Mo., Lewis County emergency management director David Keith wasn’t bothered by the soggy forecast. Sandbags were holding back the murky Mississippi from La Grange City Hall, a bank and a handful of threatened homes. The water was receding. “What we’re worried about now is all that snow melt in North and South Dakota and Minnesota,” Keith said. AccuWeather meteorologist Alan Reppert said it may stay cold long enough up north to make for a gradual melt, giving the rivers time to thin out. Of greater concern, he said, is the Red River in North Dakota, which could see significant flooding in the coming weeks. Along the Mississippi, a handful of river towns are most affected by the high wa-

ters – places like Clarksville, Mo., and Grafton that have chosen against flood walls or levees. By Sunday, sandbagging had all but stopped in Clarksville, evidence of the confidence that the makeshift levee hurriedly erected to protect downtown would hold. The river was at 34.7 feet Sunday, nearly 10 feet above the 25-foot flood stage – a somewhat arbitrary term the National Weather Service defines as the point when “water surface level begins to create a hazard to lives, property or commerce” – and expected to rise another foot before cresting Monday. “We believe we’ll have a successful conclusion,” said Jo Anne Smiley, longtime mayor of the 442-resident hamlet. Richard Cottrell, a 64-year-old antique shop owner, was hopeful, but nervous. After two days of sandbagging, Cottrell thought he could rest Saturday night, but the constant beeping of heavy equipment outside and flood worries kept him up. “I had a rough night last night. I had an anxiety attack,” he admitted. Many towns on smaller rivers in other states were dealing with floodwaters, too. In Grand Rapids, Mich., Mayor George Heartwell declared a state of emergency as the flooding Grand River poured into the basements of several hotels and other downtown buildings. Gov. Pat Quinn declared at least 44 counties disaster areas from flooding. The Fox River in northern Illinois reached record levels, and several record crests were possible along the Illinois River.

Prayer in Texas town rocked by blast The ASSOCIATED PRESS WEST, Texas – The First Baptist Church in the tiny Texas town where a fertilizer plant exploded still is off-limits, so the Rev. John Crowder put folding chairs in a hay pasture and improvised a pulpit on a truck flatbed. At the elementary school, an official carted extra desks and chairs into the only public school campus that’s left. This was Sunday in West. Four days after the blast that killed 14 people and injured 200 others, residents prayed for comfort and got ready for the week ahead, some of them still waiting to find out when – or if – they will be able to go back home. “We have lost our friends and neighbors. We lost the safety and comfort of our homes,” said Crowder, raising his voice over the whirr of helicopters surveying the nearby rubble from overhead. “But as scary as this is, we don’t have to be afraid.” The explosion at the West Fertilizer Co. rocketed shrapnel across several blocks and left what assistant state fire marshal Kelly Kirstner described Sunday as “a large crater.” A section of the flat farming town near the crater, including Crowder’s church, is still behind barricades. One school campus was

President tested in difficult week By JULIE PACE The Associated Press WASHINGTON – For President Barack Obama, one of his most wrenching White House weeks saw the fresh specter of terrorism and the first crushing political defeat of his new term, and the more emotional side of a leader often criticized for appearing clinical or detached. The events presented sharp tests for a president committed to an ambitious agenda in the limited window offered by a second term. There was the challenge to reassure a nervous nation about threats at home and to keep the rest of his legislative goals on track after the Senate rejected gun control measures that had become his top priority. “This was a tough week,” Obama said late Friday, short-

ly after authorities captured the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. The Boston Marathon explosions and the gun votes overshadowed other events that would have captivated the country and consumed the White House during almost any other week. An explosion leveled a Texas fertilizer plant, killing at least 14 people. Letters addressed to Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., were found to contain traces of poisonous ricin in tests, evoking parallels to the anthrax attacks after Sept. 11, 2001. “It’s not new,” David Axelrod, the president’s former senior adviser, said of the White House balancing act. “It’s never welcome, but it’s not entirely unexpected.” The full fallout of the events and their impact on Obama’s presidency remains uncertain.

That’s particularly true in Boston, where the motivations of the two brothers accused in the bombing are unknown, as are their connections to any terrorist network. But the capture of the teenager whose older brother was killed attempting to escape police brought closure to Boston and the White House. Barack Obama Throughout Friday, Obama aides watched coverage of the manhunt on Boston television stations being specially broadcast throughout the White House. When the search appeared to stall, the president retreated to the residence, but returned quickly to the Oval Office when news reports showed authorities closing in on 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsar-

naev. Shortly before 9 p.m., FBI Director Robert Mueller relayed news of his capture to Obama counterterrorism adviser Lisa Monaco. “They have him in custody, it is white hat,” Monaco quickly wrote in an email to the president’s chief of staff Denis McDonough, describing the hat the younger Tsarnaev was wearing in photos released by the FBI. Just one day earlier, Obama had been in Boston to speak at an interfaith service for the three people killed and more than 180 others injured in the blasts at the marathon’s finish line. Obama balanced sorrow with resolve as he sought to console the grieving city. He said Boston would “run again” and pledged to bring the “small, stunted individuals” responsible for the bombings

to justice. His words won him rare praise from some Republicans, including former presidential rival Mitt Romney. “I thought the president gave a superb address to the people of this city and the state and the nation,” said Romney, a former Massachusetts governor who attended the interfaith service. Previous terrorist attacks in the U.S. have turned into key leadership moments for the men who occupied the Oval Office directly before Obama. For President Bill Clinton, the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing proved an opportunity to regain stature after his party’s election defeats. For President George W. Bush, the events of Sept. 11, 2001, were a chance for the country to rally around a president elected under controversial circumstances.

China rushes relief after earthquake kills 186 By GILLIAN WONG The Associated Press LUSHAN, China – Luo Shiqiang sat near chunks of concrete, bricks and a ripped orange sofa and told how his grandfather was just returning from feeding chickens when their house collapsed and crushed him to death in this weekend’s powerful earthquake in southwestern China. “We lost everything in such a short time,” the 20-year-old college student said Sunday. He said his cousin also was injured in the collapse, but that other members of his family were spared because they were out working in the fields of hard-hit Longmen village in Lushan county. Saturday’s earthquake in Sichuan province killed at least 186 people, injured more than 11,000 and almost two

dozen missing, mostly in the rural communities around Ya’an city, along the same fault line where a devastating quake to the north killed more than 90,000 people in Sichuan and neighboring areas five years ago in one of China’s worst natural disasters. The Lushan and Baoxing counties hardest-hit on Saturday had escaped the worst of the damage in the 2008 quake, and residents there said they benefited little from the region’s rebuilding after the disaster, with no special reinforcements made or new evacuation procedures introduced in their remote communities. Luo said he wished more had been done to make his community’s buildings quake-resistant. “Maybe the country’s leaders really wanted to help us, but when it comes to the lower levels the officials don’t carry it out,” he

Relief teams flew in helicopters and dynamited through landslides Sunday to reach some of the most isolated communities, where rescuers in orange overalls led sniffer dogs through piles of

brick, concrete and wood debris to search for survivors. Many residents complained that although emergency teams were quick to carry away bodies and search for survivors, they had so far done little to distribute aid.

“No water, no shelter,” read a hand-written sign held up by children on a roadside in Longmen. “I was working in the field when I heard the explosions of the earthquake, and I turned around and saw my house simply flatten in front of me,” said Fu Qiuyue, a 70-year-old rapeseed farmer in Longmen. The quake – measured by China’s earthquake administration at magnitude 7.0 and by the U.S. Geological Survey at 6.6 – struck shortly after 8 a.m. Saturday. Tens of thousands of people moved into tents or cars, unable to return home or too afraid to go back as aftershocks continued to jolt the region. The quake killed at least 186 people, left 21 missing and injured 11,393, the official Xinhua News Agency quoted the provincial emergency command center as saying.

8NATION BRIEF Shots fired at Colo. pot holiday gathering DENVER– Authorities are hunting for suspects after shooting broke out during a massive marijuana celebration in Denver, leaving two people with gunshot wounds. The gunfire scattered thousands attending Saturday’s 4/20 counterculture holiday, the first since Colorado legalized marijuana. A man and a woman each suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds, officials said. Local media reports said a third person was grazed. Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson said investigators are looking for one or two suspects, asking festival attendees for possible photo or video of the shootings. He said police had no motive for the gunfire. Witnesses described a scene in which a jovial atmosphere quickly turned to one of panic at the downtown Civic Center Park just before 5 p.m. Several thought firecrackers were being set off, then a man fell bleeding, his dog also shot. “I saw him fall, grabbing his leg,” said Travis Craig, 28, who was at the celebration, saw the shooting and said he used a belt to apply a tourniquet to the man’s leg. “He was just screaming that he was in pain, and wanted to know where his girlfriend was. She was OK. And then the cops showed up real quick, like, less than a minute. They put him on ambulance and left.”

Pentagon chief stresses Israel’s right to hit Iran By ROBERT BURNS The Associated Press JERUSALEM – U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel held out hope Sunday for a nonmilitary way to ending the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran, but he also emphasized Washington’s willingness to let Israel decide whether and when it might strike Tehran in self-defense. Hagel, on his first visit to Israel as Pentagon chief, seemed intent on burying the image that Republican critics painted of him as insufficiently supportive of the Jewish state. That portrayal was central to a failed campaign to

derail Hagel’s Senate confirmation in February. In an interview with reporters on his flight from Washington, Hagel said the United States and Israel see “exactly the same” threat from Iran, which he described as a toxic combination of nuclear ambition and support for terrorism. But he acknowledged differences on when it may reach the point of requiring U.S. or Israeli military action. Hagel stressed repeatedly that Israel has a sovereign right to decide for itself whether it must attack Iran. He made no mention of the

possibility that an Israeli attack would draw the U.S. into the conflict and lead to a wider regional war. “Israel will make the decision that Israel must make to protect itself, to defend itself,” Hagel said as he began a weeklong tour of the Middle East. Also Sunday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was in Istanbul, where he urged Turkey to speed up and cement an American-brokered rapprochement with Israel. On a trip to Israel last month, President Barack Obama secured a pledge from Turkish and Israeli leaders to normalize ties that broke down after a 2010 Israeli raid on

a Gaza-bound aid flotilla. Hagel said international penalties are taking a heavy toll on Iran, though he said no one can be sure that economic coercion will compel Iran to change course. Referring to sanctions and diplomacy, Hagel said, “these other tracks do have some time to continue to try to influence the outcome in Iran.” Hagel acknowledged that while Israel and the U.S. share a commitment to ensuring that Iran does not acquire a nuclear weapon, there “may well be some differences” between the two allies on the question of when Iran’s lead-

ers might decide to go for a bomb. “When you back down into the specifics of the timing of when and if Iran decides to pursue a nuclear weapon, there may well be some differences,” he said. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tends to see more urgency, reflecting in part the fact that certain Iranian technological advances toward a nuclear weapon could put the program beyond the ability of the Israeli military to destroy it with airstrikes. U.S. forces have greater reach. Hagel’s first order of business upon arrival in Jerusa-

lem was a guided tour of the Yad Vashem Holocaust history museum. He participated in a ceremony at the Hall of Remembrance and wrote an inscription in the guest book at a memorial for the 1.5 million Jewish children who perished in the Holocaust. “There is no more poignant, more touching, more effective way to tell the story than this reality, as painful as it is, but it is a reality,” he said after completing his visit. “It did happen, and we must prepare our future generations ... for a clear understanding that we must never allow this to happen again.”

Groce brought in most campaign contributions Today is 43rd Earth Day Looking at contributions

• CONTRIBUTIONS Continued from page A1 Groce raised $14,890 between Jan. 1 and March 31. Like Rey, her backers also included prominent DeKalb citizens. John and Michael Larson, of Elmer Larson, Inc. contributed $3,500 cumulatively. Cohen Barnes, president of TBC Net and a member of the DeKalb school board, gave $1,000 to her campaign. While she has studied campaigns before, Groce said it was a challenge navigating a four-way race. “When you’re looking at putting a campaign together, how do you get your campaign out there?” Groce said, adding that some of her supporters, like Michael Larson and Tim Struthers of Castle Bank, provided her insight on how to reach people. She spent $14,024.77 during that same period, including $2,056.25 on yard signs and $7,531.25 on various advertisements. Groce had $865.23 in her campaign fund when she entered final stretch of the race. Verbic raised and spent $11,056.19 between Jan. 1 and April 15, according to his semi-

Verbic described his campaign expenditures as being diverse. He spent 2,734 on various radio advertisements, including 60-second spots on WLBK 1360 AM and B95 FM, and a 20-minute radio show that ran for six weeks. Jacobson entered Feb. 16 with $3,000 in his campaign war chest. By March 31, he would raise an additional $8,603. The majority of that money came from himself; Jacobson lent $5,000 of his own to his campaign. He also received $1,000 from Robert Jacobson, his father, and $500 from the Phi Sigma Kappa Alumni Association. Jacobson acknowledged he did not have many donors, but he said his self-financing made him unbeholden to special interests. “It’s very important to me ... that I believe in the message we’re putting out there,” Jacobson said. “It’s time for me to put my money where my mouth is.” During the same period of time, Jacobson spent $5,930.43, including $1,296 for a bus advertisement. In the final days of the campaign, Jacobson had $5,672.57 in his war chest.

• EARTH DAY Continued from page A1 Having a museum within the community embrace Earth Day also helped save a lengthy weekend trip. “She wanted to go the Field Museum,” Fitzpatrick said of his daughter. “We we’re able to settle on this and it’s been great.” Today marks the 43rd annual Earth Day, which was started in 1969 to raise awareness about environmental issues. But the day has turned into a weeklong event in the DeKalb area. Residents will have an opportunity today to watch a free screening of the documentary “Everglades of the North” as part of Northern Illinois University’s Green Lens Environmental Film Festival. The film, which will be shown at 7 p.m. at Montgomery Hall, explores the history of the Kankakee marsh and what can be done to revive it. The six-day event started Saturday and features film screenings, outdoor adventures, children’s crafts, do-ityourself presentations and

a Green Night Out in downtown DeKalb Thursday night to conclude the celebration. Information about the festival can be found at www. niu.edu/greenlens. The Committee for the Preservation of Wildlife also will give residents an opportunity to add to their gardens today with a native plant sale at The House Cafe. There will be 22 varieties of prairie plants available to buy at $4 each. Proceeds benefit environmental organizations such as LaMica, Nachusa Grasslands and the Natural Land Institute. Earth Day also is a great time to donate materials not used or needed anymore, said Shannon Halverson, spokeswoman for Goodwill Industries of northern Illinois. Halverson said donating can be just as important as recycling, noting the national Goodwill organization has diverted millions of pound of usable goods from landfills to people in need. “Every day is a good day to donate,” she said. People can make donations through www.donate. goodwill.org.

Immigration bill strikes balance

The trumped-up war between generations During the big health care fight, conservatives told older Americans that Obamacare was grabbing money from their Medicare and giving it to young people. Now they tell young workers that Medicare and Social Security are draining their take-home pay to support retirees sitting around the pool. The story, it would seem, moves from the young taking from the old to the old taking from the young. The one constant here is the motive: To weaken public support for government programs offering Americans a modicum of economic and health care security. We can all agree that entitlement spending must be contained. The “how” of it is a big question. But the answer cannot be intergenerational warfare. And it need not be. The storyline of the young being stripped by their elders has gotten a good deal of traction. Witness this headline on Charlie Cook’s National Journal column: “Democrats Risk Alienating Young Voters by Opposing Cuts in Entitlement Spending.” Cook was referring to many liberals’ complaints about President Barack Obama’s proposed budget, which would cut entitlement spending by about $800 billion over 10 years. Among other things, the plan would ask Medicare beneficiaries, particularly the well-to-do, to pay more. Most controversially, it would change Social Security’s inflation formula in a way

VIEWS Froma Harrop that would lead to smaller cost-of-living raises. Obama’s budget would begin to correct the imbalance reflected in the Urban Institute computation that Washington spends seven times as much per older American as it does per child. It would increase spending on education, on infrastructure, on research, on jobs – programs aimed at boosting an economy that has not been kind to younger workers. This may be so, and that’s no bad thing. The trouble with this conversation is that it avoids the real reason we’re having it. Yes, Medicare costs need restraining. And altering the inflation measure in Social Security – a program that’s holy ground for many liberals – could be an acceptable, if painful, concession in budget talks. But the origin of this phony war between the generations isn’t so much how the budget pie is being cut by age group. It is the size of the pie. Years of reckless tax-cutting have eaten away the revenues available to meet many national demands. This was the big rationale for cutting taxes. If you want to shrink government, conservatives kept saying, you have to cut off its allowance. So all this carping in the richest country on earth that there’s no money to fix

the bridges – and that if it weren’t for all those oldsters’ entitlements, we’d have it – is absurd. So is the spiel that we can’t guarantee health coverage to younger Americans without harming the elders’ medical benefits. The right talks about Obamacare as though achieving universal coverage were some kind of moonshot. Almost every other industrialized country has been doing it for decades. Obama’s budget offers a clever means of giving conservatives some of what they want, but it also names a price for them: $700 billion in new tax revenues. The proposal’s main idea, limiting itemized deductions for the richest households, is well-chosen. Rather than engage in hand-to-hand combat over ending this tax break or that one, lawmakers could simply put a cap on the total taken. That doesn’t mean all loopholes make equal sense. (Some, such as the deduction for mortgage interest, should be phased out.) But smart tax reform is going to take time that we don’t now have. One last point. The aging baby boom generation will be large and expensive, but its members will eventually pass on, and the ratio of workers to retirees will stabilize. In sum, no generation need be the enemy of another.

Background check required for speaking out By PETULA DVORAK The Washington Post WASHINGTON – It turns out, none of the deaths mattered to much of the U.S. Senate. Not the Batman fans sitting in a dark Colorado movie theater, not the folks waiting to chat with their congresswoman outside a Tucson Safeway, not the 15-year-old hanging out with friends in a Chicago park, not the college kids trying to master German at Virginia Tech, not even the 20 first-graders cowering in their classroom at Sandy Hook Elementary School. On Wednesday, keeping guns out of the hands of people like James Holmes, Jared Lee Loughner, Seung Hui Cho and Adam Lanza took a back seat to the political survival of a bunch of suits who cannot be moved by death, grief, the will of the people or even common sense. “Shame on you!” shouted an emotional Lori Haas from the

Senate gallery after 100 of the world’s most powerful men and women refused to impose any new restrictions on gun ownership. Even background checks went down to defeat. “We were just frustrated and angry,” said Haas whose daughter Emily was 19 when she survived two bullet wounds to the head during the Virginia Tech massacre. It happened six years ago this week. And what did Haas get for her emotional outburst? You aren’t going to believe it. She and Patricia Maisch, who also shouted “Shame on you,” but is better known as the hero who knocked a high-capacity magazine out of Loughner’s hands before he could kill more people in Tucson, were escorted out of the Senate gallery by Capitol Police. “They detained us for about an hour and a half,” said Haas, 55, who lives in Richmond, Va.. They had to turn over their IDs and wait. For what? A background check.

“Clearly, we need to detain and do background checks on two people who speak out. But not on people who want to buy guns,” Haas marveled. She’s a mother of three and a former real estate agent who will never forget that 90-mph-drive to Blacksburg, when she got the call that her daughter had been shot by Cho during a spree that killed 32 people and injured at least 17. Emily, now 25, is a teacher, wife and mother who avoids talking about that blood-soaked day. So now Haas takes up the cause, working for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and other groups. The protections and security we afford senators, but deny others is absurd. Haas reacted the same way many Americans did when they watched 46 senators turn their backs on a background check proposal that 90 percent of Americans want. The fury was immediate and visceral in my circle of friends

– especially parents, who instantly posted their Facebook versions of “Shame on you.” “Disgusted, absolutely disgusted!” a military wife and mother declared. A teacher and mother of two wrote: “I am infuriated that the Senate didn’t listen to the 90% of us who want background checks. Unacceptable.” “Channeling my anger into something more productive today ... electing new officials who don’t let their fears of things that may never come to pass prevent an attempt at prevention of even a tenth of these incidents,” another mother of two vowed. “Yes, mothers are frustrated, and we are angry,” Haas said. “But we are not going away.” As every mom knows, you can count to one, two and three, but eventually, booting a cowardly, insolent and unreasonable kid from the game is the only thing that will work. Time to give 46 senators a permanent timeout.

It’s no wonder it took so long. The bipartisan immigration bill introduced this week in the Senate is a hefty, voluminous achievement. It weighs in at almost 900 pages; given its complex political calibrations, it will need a strong binding to withstand the onslaught to come. The bill lays out a rough, but realistic, road to citizenship for the approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. They will have to pay a series of phased- in fines adding up to $2,000, demonstrate a knowledge of civics and English, and meet other requirements before obtaining Lawful Permanent Resident Status after 10 years. Citizenship will then be three more years away. The good news, however, is that if the law is enacted, these immigrants would soon be able to obtain a provisional status allowing them to work legally in the U.S. while they begin their long wait. Meanwhile, the bill promises to eliminate the lengthy backlog of immigrants awaiting entry on employment or family-based visas. The anti-reform caucus, in which Republican politicians from one of the nation’s most Hispanic states, Texas, play an especially robust role, is already labeling the proposal “amnesty.” This is something of a head-scratcher: It’s hard to recognize the legislation’s arduous, 13-year path to citizenship as anything other than a gantlet. Fortunately, young immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children would be eligible for citizenship after five years. Like much of the bill, the long wait for citizenship was a necessary compromise forged by the bipartisan “Gang of Eight” senators. The legislation is a delicate balance of trade-offs, supplying more visas for highskill workers and restricting visas based on family relationships. It promises to reduce the backlog of visa seekers in general while eliminating “diversity visas,” which help seekers from nations that typically haven’t produced large numbers of immigrants to the U.S. It mandates investment in border security to keep unskilled immigrants out, and a new “W-Visa” program designed specifically to welcome them in. The legislation lives up to its billing as “comprehensive.” It would reach into every corner of U.S. immigration policy, including a requirement that employers use the E-Verify system to check the status of prospective employees and the creation of a “biometric green card” for authorized noncitizen workers. It also contains initiatives we aren’t entirely sure about. Of particular concern are the proposed border security benchmarks, which have to be met before undocumented immigrants already in the U.S. can advance on the path to legal status and citizenship. Immigration reform promises to be a messy process, and not everything will go according to plan. But the legislation introduced this week moves the nation in the right direction. It deserves support.

Celebrate Healthy Kids Day at Y On Saturday, the Kishwaukee Family YMCA will celebrate YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day with a free community event that encourages kids in DeKalb County to get moving and learning, and families to live healthier. Healthy Kids Day, the Y’s national initiative to improve families’ health and well-being, takes place at 1,900 Ys and kick-starts healthier behaviors now and throughout the summer, a critical out-of-school time for children’s health. According to the latest findings of the YMCA’s Family Health Snapshot – a survey of parents that gauges their children’s activity levels during the school year – only 19 percent of children get 60 minutes of physical activity, only

17 percent read books for fun, and only 12 percent eat at least eight fruits and vegetables daily. “At the Kishwaukee Family YMCA, we know parents struggle to keep their kids physically and intellectually active every day. We want to help ensure fewer kids are at risk of childhood obesity and more kids excel in school,” Lesley Feyerherm, youth development director at the Kishwaukee Family YMCA, said in a news release. “YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day will get kids moving and learning while also helping families get a jump on creating a healthier summer, and ultimately a healthier future.” Research shows that without access to out-of-school physical and learning

activities, kids fall behind academically and gain weight twice as fast during summer than the school year. On Saturday, YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day will help parents begin thinking early about what their kids need to grow and achieve all summer long. The event will take place at 2500 W. Bethany Road in Sycamore from 8 a.m. to noon and features games for kids and families, bounce houses, a police dog demonstration, face painting and a Bike Rodeo where kids can ride their bicycles through safety town and learn the rules of the road. DeKalb Police Department will be on site to issue bicycle licenses. For more information, call 815-7569577 or visit www.kishymca.org.

At the next Bright Futures program, students will learn that April’s strong, gusty winds are good for more than just flying kites. The program, “Fun with Wind Energy,” will introduce elementary and middle school students to alternative energy and the science behind wind turbines. This free event will be held at 7 p.m. April 30 at Northern Illinois University’s Engineering Building, 590 Garden Road. Free parking will be available in the NIU parking lots surrounding the building. “Wind is an important source of energy for us to tap into as it contributes very little to the accumulation of greenhouse gases,” Pati Sievert, director of STEM Outreach, said in a news release. She and Melissa Burlingame, program coordinator for the Institute for the Study of the Environment, Sustainability and Energy, will share how wind energy can be harnessed to do work. Students will then get to participate in hands-on activities to test the different aspects of windmills and discover what makes them most effective in generating energy. Bright Futures will continue to offer fun, educational programs throughout the spring.

Learn the basics of yarn crafting with a simple hooked tool at Somonauk Public Library. Create a variety of fun, useful items – just a hook and a ball of yarn.

DeKalb will once again fight to prevent premature birth, birth defects and infant mortality during Kishwaukee Valley March for Babies on Saturday, the largest walk and fundraiser of the March of Dimes. About 500 people will gather at Hopkins Park beginning at 9 a.m. for registration. The 3.1mile walk kicks off at 10 a.m. Each year, nearly 500,000 babies are born too soon. Far too many die, making premature birth the leading cause of death in newborns. In Illinois, one in nine babies are born prematurely every year. March for Babies supports the March of Dimes’ fight to save babies from premature birth and other serious threats to infant health by conducting top-level research. In Illinois, 90 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to research,

OAK CREST DeKalb Area Retirement Center www.oakcrestdekalb.org

“Just do it...” I know what you’re thinking. Because, I thought it myself. I figured I could just put off this whole retirement thing for another year or maybe two. Then it hit me. All the things I will need to do to prepare for the big Kay Johnson decision and move – like sorting, packing and selling a home; I’ll still have to do. Only when that time comes, I’ll be another year or two older. Let’s face it, we’re not getting any younger. I looked at other places around Elburn but none of them felt like home. Then I came out to Oak Crest. I toured the grounds, visited with the staff, compared prices and amenities and just knew. Oak Crest was more than just a place to retire, it would be my home. The day I moved in I said, “I wouldn’t have wanted to wait even one more day.” I am so glad that I didn’t put off until tomorrow, what I could do today. Kay Johnson, Resident since June 2011

BARBFEST GIRLS SOCCER TOURNAMENT: DEKALB 4, BURLINGTON CENTRAL 1

Barbs win 4th straight BarbFest By ANTHONY ZILIS sports@daily-chronicle.com

Celtics, Bulls staying in same hotel NEW YORK – One New York hotel, two unhappy basketball teams. The Boston Celtics and Bulls are staying at the same location this weekend. Both lost their playoff openers Saturday, the Celtics falling, 85-78, to the New York Knicks and the Bulls getting routed, 106-89, by the Nets in Brooklyn. “This was a quiet, dark hotel last night. The New York-area teams didn’t treat the guests very well,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Sunday. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau (above) was an assistant under Rivers when the Celtics won the 2008 NBA title. They still talk, and Thibodeau said his old boss invited him out Friday, but he wasn’t able to go. “Unfortunately, I missed the free dinner,” Thibodeau said. “It pained me to miss it.” The Bulls play Game 2 against the Nets today. Boston will try to even its series with the Knicks on Tuesday. Neither visiting team practiced Sunday. Instead, both held meetings in the hotel, then met with reporters about 2½ hours apart. “It’s just not a good hotel today,” Rivers said. “Two losing teams. I think one should leave.” Thibodeau said Sunday the Bulls are “going to have to re-establish ourselves.” Thibodeau said center Joakim Noah’s foot feels better. The Bulls will need him against a team that shot nearly 56 percent Saturday. – Wire report

DeKALB – Members of the DeKalb girls soccer team knew if they played to their potential, there would be no stopping them on their way to their fourth consecutive BarbFest title Early Saturday, though, the Barbs weren’t playing to their full capability. After beating Indian Creek 2-0 in the day’s opener, DeKalb went down a goal to Burlington Central in the championship game after the Rockets scored on a penalty kick.

But that goal seemed to ignite the Barbs, who answered quickly and won 4-1 on goals from Rachel Butler and Ayslin Nachman and a pair from Morgan Beaty. “We went [into the championship game] kind of slow

and tired,” Beaty said. “We knew we had to come out harder than we went into [the Indian Creek game]. … We kind of picked it up and ended up doing well.” Early on, the Rockets controlled possession and Burlington Central midfielder Camille Dela Cruz scored on a penalty kick in the 11th minute. But the Barbs answered seven minutes later when Rachel Butler scored on a cross from Kelli Cardine. “That first part of the match, I didn’t think we were organized defensively,” coach Phil Rouse said. “We

I think we made that adjustment pretty quickly.” The Barbs (7-1-2) took the lead for good with less than 12 minutes left in the half, when Leah Fassig found Beaty, who knifed her way through

the Burlington Central defense and put the ball into the lower corner. Burlington Central (10-11) put pressure on the Barbs early in the second half, but Beaty gave DeKalb a two-goal lead when she received the ball at the top of the box and again dribbled through the Rockets’ defense. With Burlington Central pushing for a goal late in the game, Butler played a long ball to Nachman, who settled it just as she was passing midfield.

DeKALB – Juwan Brescacin leaped and fought two defenders for the ball. The sophomore wide receiver, a member of the Black team in Saturday’s Huskie Bowl, used his 6-foot-4, 219-pound frame and wrestled a pass away from one Cardinal defender and came down with it. Granted it was the Huskie Bowl and not the Super Bowl, but it was a catch similar to former New York

Giant wide receiver David Tyree’s big grab against the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.

“It was just Drew [Hare] trusting me to go up and get the ball,” Brescacin said. “He threw it up and I saw it and I caught it, and that’s basically what the coaches tell us to do, so it was just my first instinct.” Brescacin had a big day, grabbing three balls for 120 yards and a touchdown in a 31-7 win for Joe Tripodi’s team. There was a lot of sloppiness Saturday afternoon. With the unfamiliarity the teams had, Cardinal coach Kevin Kane

mentioned that the offensive lines had never worked together, while the running backs weren’t used to working with their respective offensive lines. “It’s definitely part of the deal, you’ve got to get used to it,” Kane said. “Still have to run our offense. But guys had fun out there. I was a little disappointed, I wish we could have ran it a little better. It was fun nonetheless.”

TWINS 5, WHITE SOX 3

Floyd pitches well in Sox loss By JAY COHEN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Gavin Floyd felt great about the way he pitched Sunday. He wasn’t so pleased with the final result for the White Sox. Floyd tossed six crisp innings in his best start of the season, but Josh Willingham hit a tiebreaking three-run double to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 5-3 victory. “Ultimately you want to win as a team,” Floyd said. AP photo “It’s a bittersweet thing. White Sox starter Gavin Floyd pitches to a Minnesota Twins batter in You’re happy that you threw the first inning of the Sox’s 5-3 loss to the Twins on Sunday at U.S. well, but unhappy that we lost, Cellular Field. Floyd allowed one run and three hits in the six innings but we just put it behind us he pitched. and work on the next start.”

Next for the Sox Cleveland at White Sox, 7:10 p.m. today, WCIU, AM-670 Aaron Hicks singled in a run and Justin Morneau had a bases-loaded walk as Minnesota swept a pair of weekend games against the Sox to stretch its winning streak to four. Friday night’s series opener was postponed. Scott Diamond (1-1) pitched six effective innings, keeping the Twins in the game while

they struggled to score against Floyd. Diamond allowed two runs, one earned, and four hits in his first start since he made his season debut in a loss to the New York Mets on April 13. “I was just back down the zone. That was the biggest focus after last game,” he said. “I was able to just locate down with most of my stuff.” Jeff Keppinger had two RBIs for the Sox, who have lost three straight and nine of 12. Adam Dunn hit his third homer, snapping a career-worst hitless streak of 31 consecutive at-bats.

Feldman’s fielding error in the fifth inning came a batter before giving up Ryan Braun’s three-run homer that lifted the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-2 win over the Cubs on Sunday for a threegame sweep. “It came down to not being able to field a groundball that I’ve fielded thousands of times since I was a little kid,” he said. “It’s like a Little League play. It’s terrible, but at the same time, I still have to pitch after that, and I had the opportunity to get Braun there. I made a mistake and that’s what he hits.”

Jets trade Revis to Bucs for first-round pick TAMPA, Fla. – Revis Island is relocating to Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers took a bold move to fix the NFL’s worst pass defense Sunday, acquiring star cornerback Darrelle Revis from the New York Jets in exchange for the 13th overall pick in this year’s draft and another selection next year. The Bucs announced the deal Sunday, saying Revis agreed to a new six-year contract. Revis’ agents Neil Schwartz and Jon Feinsod confirmed the deal is worth $96 million, with no guaranteed money, but makes him one of the highest-paid defensive players in the NFL. It includes $1.5 million annually in both roster and workout bonuses.

Serena, Venus lead U.S. to Fed Cup win DELRAY BEACH, Fla. – Venus Williams beat Johanna Larsson 6-3, 7-5 to give the United States an insurmountable 3-1 lead against Sweden in the Fed Cup World Group on Sunday.

Earlier in the day top-ranked Serena Williams boosted the U.S. to a 2-1 lead when she posted a 6-2, 6-1 win over 54thranked Sofia Arvidsson. The 21st-ranked Venus Williams was a last minute substitution for 16th-ranked Sloane Stephens in the fourth match. Stephens lost the first match of the weekend to Arvidsson. Williams needed eight match points to finally put away Larsson. – Wire reports

Barbs dedicate field to Pettengell Longtime coach led team to Class AA Elite 8 in ’95 By ANDREA AZZO sports@daily-chronicle.com The last time Chad Beaty was in DeKalb was more than ten years ago, but Saturday marked a special occasion. Beaty, a pitcher and catcher for the 1995 DeKalb High School baseball team, made the two-hour trip from his home in Bloomington to see the baseball field be dedicated to a man he calls a father figure. The naming of Dave Pettengell Field was unveiled to the crowd after the Barbs defeated Dixon, 6-5. Pettengell was the baseball coach for 21 years, taking his team to the IHSA Class AA Elite Eight in 1995. He was inducted into the Illinois High School Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame in 2002. “On a day like today, he’s looking down with a smile on his face,” Beaty said. Pettengell died in 2011 shortly after his retirement in 2010. He was 60 years old. Pettengell’s family was there to unveil the field’s new name. His wife Barb, sons Kyle and Ryan, mother Joy and granddaughters Ava and Bella stood underneath the scoreboard as a tarp was taken off to show Pettengell’s name. Mark Sykes, assistant athletic director and driver’s education teacher at the school, remembers his colleague as an avid sports fan. “He was all about hanging flags in the gym,” Sykes said. “That’s what we all want to do is win state championships.” Before the name’s unveiling, announcer Bryan Klatt read a

Pettengell taught at DeKalb High School for 29 years as a driver’s education and business teacher. He also coached football and basketball teams during his tenure. “Anyone who knew Dave knew that he spent countless hours manicuring the baseball field,” Klatt read. “I’m sure Barb would have enjoyed the same effort at their residence.” Tony Kakoliris, who pitched for Pettengell and was on his coaching staff in 1995, said Pettengell was a great mentor and friend, adding he was “always there.” Kakoliris was among a group of people who stood near home plate talking about Pettengell.

coach. For Beaty, the bond between his former teammates felt as strong as it was about 20 years ago. “To come back and see these guys you haven’t seen in 15 years, you pick up where you left off,” Beaty said. “Something’s missing from that picture, and that’s what brings us here today.” Justin Keck, who was on Pettengell’s coaching staff in 1995 and played in the ’91 season, said Pettengell had a role in his decision to become a baseball coach. Keck coached the Barbs from 2006 to 2010. “He helped me make my passion [for coaching] as strong as it is,” Keck said. One of Keck’s favorite memories of Pettengell was when he got to place a medal around his neck after the Barbs finished

second in the Class 3A state championships in 2010. Keck said Pettengell was always about the kids. “As much as he’d be honored [to have the field named after him], part of him would have wanted all the credit in the world to go to the kids,” he said. The Barbs’ win Saturday would have made Pettengell happy, former players said. DeKalb lost the second game, 5-4. The team came from behind to win in the last inning. “He would have found it to be the best thing in the world,” Sykes said, “and the next best thing would be playing two.” DeKalb High School will install a memorial plaque with Pettengell’s name and picture within the next couple of weeks. The plaque will be next to an American flag, which stands near the baseball field.

BARBFEST GIRLS SOCCER TOURNAMENT: DEKALB 2, INDIAN CREEK 0

IC hangs with DeKalb By ANTHONY ZILIS sports@daily-chronicle.com DeKALB – Indian Creek forward Christina Sommerfeld is used to seeing DeKalb blow out the Timberwolves. But when the previously undefeated Timberwolves stepped onto the field Saturday for the final group game of BarbFest, the senior knew this time would be different. The Timberwolves held the Barbs scoreless in the first half and lost 2-0, a positive result for the Class 1A school. “Past years we’ve always lost tremendously to them,” said Sommerfeld, who earned all-tournament honors along with teammate Alex Turner. “Just losing 2-0 and going into the half 0-0, that’s big for our team. Losing to DeKalb, who’s a really big school, we can take so much from this game and just know that we’re such a good team.” The Barbs had the majori-

ty of possession early, but Indian Creek (4-1-2) held strong defensively all half. Freshman goalkeeper Josie Diehl made a number of saves in the first half, and with 3:25 remaining, she made a diving stop on a shot by DeKalb midfielder Rachel Butler. Just more than a minute later, Butler hit the post. After DeKalb rolled in BarbFest’s first two games, winning by a combined score of 14-0, the T’wolves managed a shutout in the first half. The Barbs finally opened up the scoring with just less than 29 minutes left, when Morgan Beaty hit two shots off the post, then Danielle Dlabal gathered a rebound and scored. Just more than a minute later, Beaty found Carlie Hayes, who scored over Diehl’s outstretched hands. DeKalb came out with the win, but a freshman-loaded Indian Creek team stayed with a much bigger school.

Barbs had four straight shutouts • DeKALB Continued from page B1 The DeKalb track and field sprinter blew past Rockets’ defenders and beat the goalkeeper near post. “It was kind of like a football touchdown,” said Carlie Hayes, who was selected to the all-tournament team along with Beaty, Cardine and goalkeeper Maddie Frye. “Everybody was getting ready for it, then it came in. Then, when she got the goal, it was awesome.” The Barbs had shut out four consecutive opponents before Burlington Central scored Saturday, so they weren’t exactly used to responding to adversity. “It had been awhile since we had a goal scored on us,” Rouse said. “You don’t know how you’re going to respond when you have a goal scored on you. Sometimes you put your head down, and we easily could have done that. But I thought as a team we came together and actually galvanized.”

NORTHERN ILLINOIS FOOTBALL NOTES

Carey happy with defense’s ‘good day’ By STEVE NITZ

Northern Illinois quarterback, on a Huskie Bowl return next year

pleased with the way the group has progressed this spring. “We have high expectations for them,” Carey said. “And right now, they’re on their way to meeting those.”

This fall, the Huskies will have to replace seven starters from last season’s defense. “My feel out there is that the defense made some plays,” Carey said. “There’s always a double-edged sword to this thing in spring, because defense is making plays, that means that the offensive guy didn’t go up and get that ball out so it’s not a pick,” Carey said. “... My gut right now tells me the defense just had a really good day.” When it comes to the secondary, Carey said he’s been

coach Kevin Kane, who was the losing coach Saturday, said he feels great about what the Huskies have at the linebacker spot. Kane mentioned that junior outside linebacker Jamaal Bass had the best spring of his career, and also seemed impressed with the play of middle linebacker Boomer Mays and outside linebackers Lemon and Michael Santacaterina. “Those are four guys I know that, coming into the season, I feel happy about,” Kane said. “We’ll see, we’ve

“Of course, I’d love to do it again.”

snitz@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Northern Illinois head coach Rod Carey hadn’t gotten a chance to look at the film of Saturday’s Huskie Bowl before speaking with reporters. But on the surface, Carey felt his defense had a good afternoon after watching Joe Tripodi’s Black team defeat Kevin Kane’s Cardinal squad, 31-7. The Cardinal and Black teams combined to pick off five passes, two courtesy of Team Tripodi senior corner Sean Evans. Cardinal defensive end Stephen O’Neal had a sack and a fumble recovery.

got to develop some more depth still.”

A different kind of atmosphere: Compared with your normal spring game, there was a more intensity Saturday. “It’s a lot of fun. We picked our own teams,” said Team Tripodi QB Drew Hare, who had an impressive day, going 7 of 10 for 143 yards and a touchdown. “Everyone’s working towards one goal, that’s just to beat the other team. We’ve been talking all week to each other, trash talk in the locker room, on the field. Just to get out here against each other, it’s a good feeling.” Hare said he’d certainly be in favor if Carey decides to have a Huskie Bowl again next season. “Absolutely,” he said. “Of course, I’d love to do it again.”

The game saw numerous penalties and five interceptions, four courtesy of the Black team. Cornerback Sean Evans had two for Tripodi’s squad, while defensive end Stephen O’Neal recovered a fumble for the Cardinal. Team Tripodi QB Drew Hare was the most impressive quarterback, finishing 7 of 10 for 143 yards and a TD. Hare had no problem throwing the ball up to Brescacin when he made the circus catch. “We had our post to the field and that’s what Brescacin was running. I felt like he had a favorable matchup,” Hare said. “I put it up there for him, he’s a playmaker. He’s going to come

ing time at the end of last season and will be in the mix to be one of Jordan Lynch’s key targets. Sophomore Angelo Sebastiano, who caught

two touchdown passes in last week’s spring game, came up with seven grabs for 92 yards and a touchdown Saturday for Team Kane. Brescacin was a confident player at the end of last season, and it’s carried over into the spring. “With Martel [Moore] and Perez [Ashford] leaving, it gave me the chance to come out and just play [this spring],” Bres-

cacin said. “Not being a freshman now, and having some experience playing last season, it helped me with spring ball.” Fall camp is a long way away, but Brescacin, Hare and the rest of Tripodi’s team will get to cap off spring practice with a nice steak dinner. “It’s going to be nice. It’s well deserved,” Hare said. “Everybody’s been working really hard. It’s pretty exciting.”

• WHITE SOX Continued from page B1 “It’s still early, you don’t want to keep losing games like this, but we’re not worried,” outfielder Alex Rios said. “We’re a talented team and we’re going to be able to compete in this division and in other divisions. We just have to put a few good at-bats together and we’ll be fine. We’ll get out of this.” Wearing 1983 replica uniforms, the Sox led, 2-1, before Hicks drove in Trevor Plouffe with a single against Matt Lindstrom (1-1) in the seventh. Minnesota went on to load the bases when Donnie Veal issued a two-out walk to Joe Mauer, and Willingham drove the first pitch from Jesse Crain deep to center to give the Twins a 5-2 lead. “It was a tough day for me,” Lindstrom said. “Usually my stuff is not running as hard as it was today. But I just need to stay aggressive with hitters and stop trying to get them to bounce into a double play and stuff like that.” Dunn connected against Josh Roenicke in the bottom half, belting a drive to center, but Jared Burton worked the eighth and Glen Perkins finished for his fifth save in five chances. The Sox wasted a terrific start by Floyd, who allowed one run and three hits in a marked turnaround from his shaky beginning to the season. The righthander dropped each of his first three starts while yielding 11 earned runs in 15⅔ innings. “He had a good game, you take the positive out of that,” manager Robin Ventura said. The Sox went ahead 1-0 in the fourth, making the most of a misplay by Willingham. Alejandro De Aza led off with a drive to left that went off Willingham’s glove as he backpedaled to try to make the catch. De Aza, who was credited with a double, advanced to third on a wild pitch and scampered home on Keppinger’s bouncer to shortstop. The White Sox then put two more runners on, but Dunn struck out and Rios was cut down trying to steal third in an inning-ending double play.

“With Martel [Moore] and Perez [Ashford] leaving, it gave me the chance to come out and just play [this spring]. Not being a freshman now, and having some experience playing last season, it helped me with spring ball.”

ADVICE & PUZZLES

Page B4 • Monday, April 22, 2013

Daily Chronicle / Daily-Chronicle.com

Mom wants ex to be a good sport, watch son Dear Abby: My 14-year-old son, “Nils,” recently joined a sport he really enjoys. His stepdad and I are at every practice, helping the coaches and coaching my son along. Nils recently commented to me that he would like it if his father could come and see him practice. I took it upon myself, as I usually do, to call my ex, “John,” and suggest he make an appearance because it would make our son happy. My husband, who has been a wonderful stepdad to Nils for 13 years now, told me I should leave it alone. He said if John was a “real” father, he would just show up without being asked. When things like this

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips happen, should I leave it alone, or should I ask John to be involved more than he tries to be? I tell my ex about all of our son’s activities and sometimes he just doesn’t show. – Trying To Be A Good Mom Dear Trying: Not knowing your former husband, I can’t guess his reason for not coming to your son’s practices, particularly if he said he was going to attend. John may be irresponsible, or he may have unforeseen scheduling con-

flicts. By telling him about your son’s activities and letting him know his presence is wanted, you have done your job as a conscientious mother. At 14, Nils is old enough to also call his father and invite him. The rest is up to your ex. Dear Abby: In reference to the letter from the man who was constantly setting off “gaydar” alarms in females (March 10), I would like to share my experience. I dated and then married a man who incorrectly set off MY “gaydar.” It had nothing to do with his mannerisms, his speech or appearance. It was his extreme personal insecurity regarding dating and making friends. In addition,

“Mr. Not-Gay” could neither read nor write, which caused even more emotional insecurity. After we had been married 10 years he became physically disabled and we had to move. No one in our new city took him for gay, even without me and without a wedding ring on him. He divorced me at 62 because the 30-something home-care aides looked better, but that’s another story. – Marcia in Pennsylvania Dear Marcia: I hope you will write again and tell us the rest of the story, as I’m sure I’m not the only person who would be interested in reading it. I agree that individu-

als who are uncomfortable with themselves sometimes emit vibes that make others uncomfortable because I have experienced it. But this subject does highlight the absurdity of gay stereotypes. Because a man is slight, soft-spoken and a meticulous dresser does not mean he is gay, any more than it means a man who is fat, sloppy and loud is straight.

Weight-loss program combines diet, exercise Dear Dr. K: Please settle a long-running argument between me and my sister. What’s more effective for weight loss, diet or exercise? Dear Reader: Losing weight can be a challenge. The best approach is to eat less and exercise more. But that’s not what you asked me. Let’s say one person cuts back on calories without exercising and another person increases exercise without cutting back on calories. The first person would probably find it easier to lose weight. That’s because it’s easier to cut 500 calories a day from your diet than to burn 500 extra calories through exercise. But there’s more to it. If you cut back only on calories, you’re more likely to regain

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff the weight you lose. Why? The body reacts to weight loss as if it were starving. In response, the body slows its metabolism. When your metabolism slows, you burn fewer calories – even at rest. Even if you continue eating fewer calories, you will either stop losing weight as quickly as you have been, or you’ll stop losing weight altogether. The solution is to increase your physical activity. Doing so will counter the metabolic slowdown caused by reducing calories. You’ll burn more calories just by sitting and

daydreaming if you have been exercising regularly. With regular exercise, you don’t just burn calories when you’re active; you increase the number of calories you burn at rest. This is called resting energy expenditure. Any increase in resting energy expenditure is extremely important for weight loss, because most of us are at rest the greater part of the 24-hour day. In addition, physical activity temporarily curbs appetite in the time immediately following exercise. Your resting energy expenditure remains elevated as long as you exercise at least three days a week on a regular basis. Vigorous activities that can stimulate your metabolism include

walking briskly for two miles or riding a bike uphill. Moderate-intensity activities, such as taking a short walk or raking leaves, won’t raise your resting energy expenditure as much as high-intensity activities will. But they have other advantages. For one thing, they help reduce body fat and build muscle – and muscle tissue burns more calories than fat does. (I’ve put a table listing several moderate- and vigorous-intensity activities on my website.) One last thing about exercise: Many people believe that regular exercise is healthy for you only because it helps you lose weight. Surely, having a healthy weight reduces your risk of many diseases, and regular exercise can help you

get down to a healthy weight. But what many people don’t know is that regular exercise powerfully protects you against major diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke and many types of cancer – even if you don’t lose weight.

Students should be able to petition to fire teacher Dr. Wallace: You told a student that he would be wasting his time trying to get a teacher fired by getting fellow students to sign a petition urging the school administrators to dismiss her because she was a terrible instructor. Are you not aware that petitions are a nonviolent way to accomplish a goal? That student has every legal and moral right to do what he can to get an ineffective teacher fired. After all, if a teacher is not effective, it’s the students who suffer. – Mary, Boston, Mass. Mary: My problem with complaining about a teacher by petition is that it means very little. Students are as

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace likely to dislike a teacher for foolish and immature reasons as they are for valid ones. For instance, teachers who are firm disciplinarians and demand that their students work hard to earn good grades are likely to be unpopular, even though, in reality, they are terrific teachers. I do think students have the right to seek redress or try to get a teacher removed if he or she is, indeed, a “terrible” instructor. A far better tactic than a petition drive is for a group of students to

TODAY – In coming months, you are likely to play a minor but rewarding role in an innovative enterprise. There’s a fair amount of risk, but there’s also a lot to gain. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Be extremely careful about what you say. Don’t talk about anything meant only for select ears, lest you spill the beans about something very private. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – It behooves you to tie up all loose ends, because anything left dangling could cause you a big headache. If you think you can’t complete something, don’t start it. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – There’s a chance that the restlessness you feel could be more mental than physical. Assuage this affliction by speaking with a companion who always has something interesting to say. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Go out of your way to mind your spending, especially where nonessentials are concerned. There’s a good chance you could have a large leak in your wallet. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Appearances are always important, especially if you hope to inspire and/or control others in some manner. To be a leader, you must look like one. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Your intuition is in good form, provided you carefully assess what it’s telling you. Use your logic in tandem with your hunches, and you’ll be hard to stop. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Be open-minded and receptive when socializing with friends. You may find conversations to be unusually meaningful, with valuable information being exchanged. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – A major goal is achievable if you focus your efforts on it. Be careful not to spread your energy too thin, or nothing will come of it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – A number of new opportunities are likely to come your way if you broaden your horizons. Try to develop some new interests so you can meet new people. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – There’s no need to be anxious about change, because it could broaden your horizons. Most shifting conditions tend to work for your benefit. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Try to keep in mind that there are always two sides to every story, because if you don’t, you could jump to an erroneous conclusion when you learn some unpleasant information. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Be realistic about the tasks you undertake. Unless you’re discerning about what you can accomplish, you could easily get in a heap of trouble.

meet with the principal and have an open and honest discussion. That way the principal can evaluate the nature of the complaints and make an informed decision regarding the teacher’s effectiveness. Dr. Wallace: A 19-yearold daughter was trying to discourage her 40-year-old mother not to return to college to earn her teaching degree because she thought her mother was too old. Hurray for your answer that, indeed, her mother was not too old, and that mom could become a wonderful teacher because she would have an abundance of life experiences to add to her formal college

experiences. Life really does begin at age 40! I earned my college degree and, at the same time, earned my teaching credential when I was 41. That was my goal. I then taught English and Geography for two years, during which time I got a school counselor’s license. After that, I got an administrator’s credential and was a high school assistant principal for 10 more years. During that time, I learned to water ski, square dance, play an electric organ, and I also traveled through the United States, Europe, Asia and Africa. At age 86, I am still having a great life! – Eleanor, Riverside, Calif.

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Eleanor: Congratulations on your exciting and wonderful life. I am a firm believer that if people have the determination to succeed, they can reach their goals. You are living proof! Continue to have your great life. You earned it! • Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers.

8CROSSWORD

Opener’s rebid paves the auction’s path Ben Hecht, who was known as the Shakespeare of Hollywood, said, “Trying to determine what is going on in the world by reading newspapers is like trying to tell the time by watching the second hand of a clock.” When a player makes his second bid, he should give more information about the distribution and strength of his hand than he supplied with his initial call. Let’s look at the opener’s choices this week after partner has responded at the one-level. What should South rebid in this deal? This is the basic theory: If he makes a minimum rebid, he shows minimum count, sometimes 12-14 points; at other times it will be 12-16 (or an unexciting 17). If opener makes a jump rebid, he guarantees extra strength, 15-17 or (17-plus) 18-20. Also, if he bids a new suit at the two-level, he indicates at least five cards in his first suit. Bidding a suit for the second time promises at least six. And no-trump specifies a balanced hand. Here, South should rebid two no-trump, showing (a good 17) or 18 or 19 (or a bad 20). This rebid does not deny a four-card major and is in principle game-forcing. Against three no-trump, West leads the heart jack. South has eight top tricks: two spades, three hearts, one diamond and two clubs. His best chance is a 3-2 diamond split. However, dummy is short of entries. The right play is to win trick one and duck (lose) a diamond. Declarer wins the second heart and ducks another diamond. He takes the next (heart) play by East, leads his last diamond to dummy’s ace, and cashes the two remaining winners in the suit, giving him 10 tricks in all.
