MAPLE PARK

Crowd embraces the arts at festival By ASHLEY RHODEBECK arhodebeck@shawmedia.com MAPLE PARK – Carson King, a 9-year-old from Sugar Grove, didn’t have any artwork displayed in Sunday’s Kaneland Community Fine Arts Festival, but that didn’t dampen his enthusiasm for the activities he did get to do, particularly the pottery wheel. The John Shields Elementary School fourthgrader only watched someone use the pottery wheel at last year’s festival, his mother, Lisa King said. “He’s so excited to do this,” she said, watching him mold the spinning clay. Held at Kaneland High School, the 14th annual Kaneland Community Fine Arts Festival also featured live performances; visual artists whose focuses included watercolors, fiber felt work and jewelry; and artwork from current and former students. Seated at a table near the

The junior at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago is majoring in fine arts with a concentration in printmaking, although she also draws, sculpts and paints, she said. The Kaneland festival was

the first such art festival she has participated in, she said. In the arts pavilion, lines for caricatures and silhouettes kept artists’ pencils and – in the case of the latter – scissors busy. Artist in residence Eric Nye also drew a crowd with his interactive paintings.

Visitors were welcome to turn the paintings’ into moveable pieces, which were mostly arranged in 3-by-3 or 4-by-4 grids. Because each piece had three sides, there were thousands of ways a painting could look. Nye, 41, also displayed artwork from the Kaneland School District 302 students he talked to as the artist in residence. He spoke about what it’s like to a be a working artist, he said, adding he told them they shouldn’t worry if every piece isn’t a masterpiece. “You can always make another one,” he said. Nye plans to incorporate the artwork the children made, which included sets of blocks inspired by his interactive paintings, into a piece for the district office, Nye said. Seeing the students’ enthusiasm and the moments that the lightbulb went off in their eyes made Nye proud to be a part of the program, he said.

GENEVA

Earth Day event a big draw at Peck Farm Park By NICOLE WESKERNA nweskerna@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Carolyn Burnham told people who stopped by her booth Saturday that buying bottled water costs 2,000 times what people pay to get water out of the their tap. Burnham, a volunteer with the Batavia Environmental Commission, administered a water taste test at an Earth Day event at Peck Farm Park in Geneva. People could sample regular tap water, filtered tap water and bottled water. Isaac Orcutt of Elburn tasted the three samples and found out his favorite sample was plain tap water. “I think they’re trying to raise awareness that bottled water is really bad and that the water in the bottle is bad,” he said. The water taste test was one of the many activities offered Saturday, and was hosted by Geneva’s Natural Resources Committee and

the park district’s Peck Farm Park. Isaac Orcutt, along with his wife, Michelle, and their 6-month-old baby, Nolan, also had a chance to get rid of an old TV at the event, which also offered electronics recycling. “We’re getting more into trying to pay attention to what we’re doing and what we’re eating,” he said. Jay Womack, chair of the Natural Resources Committee of Geneva, said the event offers people a chance to learn

more about sustainability, pick up a free tomato plant or buy a sapling to plant later. Several booths were set up, including a bicycle tuneup booth and children’s yoga demonstrations. Ann Drover and Nancy Goodfellow, both part of the Green Sanctuary organization with the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva, were selling reusable packaging made of cloth to use in place of wrapping paper. “It’s better for the environment,” Drover said. “You’re not throwing it into a landfill

after you use it.” Womack pointed out other activities related to Earth Day, which was Monday. He said families could enjoy drawing with chalk and learning about solar panels. People also could buy a rain barrel or compost bin. “We just want people to recognize that even the littlest thing matters,” he said. “It all counts. … It’s all about choices. You can make a choice that’s good for the earth and people recognize they have the ability to change.”

Fox River receding, but more rain is on the way By NICOLE WESKERNA nweskerna@shawmedia.com The Fox River has crested and is now receding after the flooding that resulted from heavy rainfall that brought several inches of rain to the area last week. Paul Schuch, director of Water Resources for Kane County, said the river height peaked at 12.5 feet in St. Charles and was expected to peak around 12.6 feet in Algonquin on Monday. While more rain is expected to fall today, most water-covered roads in the county have reopened since Thursday’s weather. However, the Illinois Street bridge in St. Charles remains closed. Mark Koenen, public works director for St. Charles, said the top of the bridge’s pier was still covered with water Monday and city officials are waiting for the water to recede more before reopening the bridge. Koenen said it is the first time he can remember since 2008 that the bridge has been closed because of heavy rainfall. He said last week’s rainfall pushed the Fox River to 3.99 feet above flood stage, which he said falls among the top

flood elevations on record. “So it’s a significant event we had this time around,” he said. Many compared last week’s flooding to 2008. However, Alan Lins, owner of Mr. Handyman of Naperville and Geneva, said last week’s rainfall was “the worst one probably since 1996,” when some areas received as much as 17 inches of rain. He said his company has been receiving lots of calls for water cleanup, sump pump and roof maintenance, and drywall and carpet removal. He said damage from flooding has been extensive, but he said it mostly was contained to basements. Don Bryant, of the Kane County Office of Emergency Management, said he noticed that many homeowners have taken steps in recent years to mitigate flooding by elevating their homes. He noted that some areas in Geneva, Batavia and North Aurora that typically don’t get major flooding saw more flooding than usual last week. Cindy Hiltenbrand, company manager for Kane County Mutual Insurance Company in Geneva, said that the office has been busy taking flood-related calls. She said

last week’s flooding wasn’t as significant as the rainfall in 1996, but said people have submitted claims after last week’s flood. “I think if we were to the east in DuPage [County] or Des Plaines, that might be different,” she said. “Right here, it has not been so bad.” In North Aurora, Public Works Superintendent Mike Glock said city officials still are dealing with approximately 6.5 inches of rain that fell there. He said almost everything is back to normal and noted that officials were prepared for the rain expected today. “We’re going around, keeping an eye on things,” he said. “We did inspections of retention ponds, and we’re making sure intersections are clear.” Bryant said the county still is waiting to hear about federal flood assistance and said there’s no timeline for when he expects to get information. He said Tuesday’s rain is “definitely on our radar.” “We don’t expect a large increase in the river, but it may go up,” he said. “The river has crested, and it’s starting to go down now. It depends on how much rain we’re supposed to get.”

Charles ‘Chic’ Williams dies By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com Charles “Chic” Williams, who ran The Community Intervention Program for Geneva and Kane County, died Monday, Geneva School District 304 board President Mark Grosso announced at the school board meeting. Williams ran the community intervention program, which was developed in 2001,

collaborating with other community agencies to assist atrisk youths and their families. He was known for running the Parent to Parent 2000 programs to aid parents in how to keep their children off drugs. An English teacher first, Williams became a dean of students at the high school in 1979. In the early 1990s, Williams became a certified alcohol/drug counselor, which blossomed into a lifelong pas-

sion for him. After he retired in 2001, Williams founded Williams Intervention Consulting and continued working as the community intervention specialist in a basement office at the district’s administration building on Fourth Street, along with his wife, Linda Williams, also a certified drug and alcohol counselor. Funeral arrangements are pending.

Leaders talking about liquor license changes By ASHLEY RHODEBECK arhodebeck@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – The new St. Charles City Council will decide what changes will be made to the liquor rules, but discussions Monday night indicated support for a late-service permit, distinctions between bars and restaurants and establishing a multimember liquor commission. Police Chief Jim Lamkin told the Government Services Committee that many options suggested last month – including those mentioned above – are possible to implement. The City Council has been scrutinizing the downtown bar scene since Mayor Don DeWitte, who also acts as liquor commissioner, asked aldermen in August to change the closing time from 2 a.m. to 1 a.m. in an effort to curb overserving. Fourth Ward Alderman Jim Martin said changes regarding liquor license rules should be made after Ray Rogina assumes his role as mayor and the new aldermen, Ron

Silkaitis and Art Lemke, are sworn in next month. “Get rid of the bars and keep the restaurants,” Martin said. “You figure out how to do that.” Rogina said he supports having the council annually review the 2 a.m. late-night license as well as appointing citizens to the liquor commission. “I’m convinced we’ll get good people,” Rogina said. Third Ward Alderman Bill Turner and 5th Ward Alderman Maureen Lewis said they had concerns about the commission’s makeup. Specifically, Lewis said, she dislikes the idea of it having two elected officials and three appointed citizens. “I have that concern because it’s adjudication,” she said. “When citizens start doling out punishment to businesses ... I just think maybe that’s going in the wrong direction.” City Administrator Brian Townsend said the City Council would decide on the liquor commission’s authority.

DISTRICT 304

By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Despite emotional pleas not to move their children from Williamsburg to Western Avenue next year, the Geneva School District 304 board voted, 5-1, with one absent Monday in favor of a recommendation to do just that. Board member Michael McCormick cast the lone “no” vote and board member

Timothy Moran was absent. As they did at the last school board meeting, Batavia Highlands subdivision parents of the 16 children scheduled to be moved next school year held signs criticizing the school board, such as, “They are not targets. They are children.” Although their subdivision is in Batavia, it is in the District 304 boundary. Parent Angela Morrison

criticized the boundary task force, saying it was made up of only school board members with an agenda, saying the issue should have been studied by a committee with only one person from the board. “None of these kids should have to be moved,” Morrison said. Another parent, Michelle Burgwaldt, said their area has been moved repeatedly over the years. Burgwaldt

said there was no reason their area could not be phased out of Williamsburg, meaning children there now could stay, but future children would go to Western. “If any other area in Geneva has been moved this many times as we have been – I guarantee it’s not,” Burgwaldt said, breaking down into tears. “It’s personal to me.” Superintendent Kent Mutchler said the boundary

change is called an adjustment because it does not move major numbers of students around. He noted the task force held four public forums before issuing a recommendation. “The numbers are dynamic,” Mutchler said. “The main goal was to balance enrollment between schools … We would like to keep them there [at Western] forever, if possible.”

BATAVIA

City Council weighs going to a committee system BATAVIA – Aldermen are debating whether to change their current committee structure as a way to help newly elected aldermen get up to speed on issues facing the city. Six new aldermen will be seated on the City Council in May.

Mayor Jeff Schielke has suggested the City Council go to a committee-of-the-whole system as an experiment because of the large number of new aldermen coming on the 14-member City Council. The City Council currently has four standing committees comprised of different aldermen. In a committee-of-thewhole system, the entire

The rain barrels are $58.50 each. The Conservation Foundation Rain Barrels are 55 gallons each and made from recycled food grade plastic. There are three options for pricing and delivery: a barrel with standard pickup, a barrel and home delivery or a barrel, home delivery and installation: the prices for these options are $58.50, $63.50 and $78.50, respectively, and are available in the following colors: black, blue, gray and terra cotta. To place an order go to www. cityofbatavia.net/rainbarrels. Those interested do not need to be a resident of Batavia to

place an order using the pickup option. The orders will be delivered from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday at Clark Island Skate Park, located along the Fox River off Route 25 at approximately 411 S. River St. For information, call 630-5530687, ext. 302.

City Council would meet as a committee to discuss issues before they are approved at a City Council meeting. Second Ward Alderman Alan Wolff said he could see benefits to a committee-ofthe-whole system. “I like the idea that everybody is here for all discussions,” Wolff said. However, other aldermen worried that committee-of-

the-whole meetings would not allow for enough discussion on different issues. “We need to discuss things deeper and longer if we have to,” 1st Ward Alderman Michael O’Brien said. First Ward Alderman Garran Sparks said a decision on whether to go to a committee-of-the-whole system would not be made until after the six aldermen are

Hitting the open market Class of 2013 is looking for jobs amid mixed prospects By JONATHAN BILYK jbilyk@shawmedia.com

A

s he nears graduation day, Addison Merchut admits the here and now may not go down in history as an easy time for anyone, let alone a college graduate with limited work experience, to land a job. But that is why he began doing not just homework, but legwork, months ago to give himself a fighting chance. “There may be lots of jobs out there,” Merchut said. “But I’m shooting for something specific and trying not to settle. “That’s why I’m working at this as hard as I can.” This spring, Merchut, 26, of Geneva, is scheduled to graduate from Northern Illinois University with a master’s degree in mechanical engineering. But specifically, Merchut – who in his younger days in Geneva was known as “Gordon” – said his studies have focused on achieving one goal: learning to design and build robotic appendages and control them remotely. With a focus so tight, Merchut said he set his sights early this year on landing a full-time position that fully employs his accumulated skills, knowledge and experience. To that end, Merchut set about networking, researching, interviewing prospective employers, marketing himself and getting to know the people that operate within his field. And all of that work, he said, came before sending out a single, traditional job application or official letter of interest. “Just looking for a job, it feels like a whole other college class, you know?” Merchut said. “But now I have all of these connections, and I feel like, with certainty, I will get that job.” As Merchut and others in the Class of 2013 hit the job

Job seekers participate in a job fair Friday at Elgin Community College. market in coming weeks, that kind of focus, determination and tenacity may be what is required to land a quality, career-oriented position. Those who make a living monitoring employment trends tend to hold a mixed view of the job market for such graduates. Recent research indicates that the employment marketplace remains historically tight. In a report published in April, the Economic Policy Institute described the job market for younger workers as “dim.” They noted that unemployment for college graduates remains historically high. In 2012, for instance, 8.8 percent of college graduates ages 21 to 24, without an advanced degree, were counted as unemployed. From the late 1980s to the onset of the Great Recession in 2008, that unemployment rate ranged from about 4 percent to 7 percent. After the economic crash, the rate soared to more than 10 percent, the EPI report said. Such factors, in turn, have

hurt the earning abilities of college graduates, as the EPI report also noted that average earnings of young col-

lege graduates dropped 7.6 percent in that last 12 years. After adjusting for inflation, the real average hourly wage

for young college graduates dropped from $18.14 in 2000 to $16.60 last year. However, other research indicates that the job market may be brightening. A recent survey of U.S. employers by Careerbuilder. com revealed that 53 percent of those companies intend to hire college graduates from the Class of 2013, up from 46 percent as recently as 2011. And 27 percent of the employers surveyed told Careerbuilder they intend to offer higher starting salaries than they did in 2012, with about half of employers planning to offer starting salaries of $30,000 to $50,000 annually. Those working with local job seekers said they recognize both the positive and negative realities of the current job market. Brandon Lagana, spokesman for the Northern Illinois

• JOBS Continued from page 8 University Career Services department, said his department has worked with a growing number of employers from numerous sectors interested in recent college graduates holding degrees in various majors. “The levels of activity are approaching levels we haven’t seen since 2007,” Lagana said. “There are companies looking for a variety of positions. “You’d be surprised what they are.” Craig Frank, president of Frank’s Employment in St. Charles, agreed, noting that hiring activity in the second half of 2012 hit levels “we have not seen in six years.” However, college graduates about to hit the open market still should not expect an easy job search. Lagana and Frank said graduates should not only remain tenacious but also flexible – if not in their choice of profession, at least in geography. “If you’re looking to go back to your hometown, you may have a hard time,” Lagana said. “But if you’re open to traveling or relocating, you really open things up for yourself.” Frank agreed, noting that college graduates also should not hold out too long before taking a job. He cited research indicating that job applicants with employment gaps of six months or more are experiencing the most difficult time landing jobs. “The most important thing right now is to get out there and get working,” Frank said. “The last thing you want to do is to be sitting at home for months and months.”

Belda Kousonsanong of Elgin speaks with a possible employer during Friday’s job fair at Elgin Community College.

Know more While the job market for college graduates has improved, hiring activity remains tight. So what should new graduates consider when searching for a job? Brandon Lagana, director of marketing and information resource management at Northern Illinois University’s Career Services department, and Craig Frank, president of Frank’s Employment in St. Charles, offer tips: • Take stock of your experience. Use internships, outside learning experiences and other experience from your college days to make connections and promote yourself to prospective employers. • Get face time. Take advantage of opportunities offered through your college to meet with employers and their representatives. • Broaden your perspective. Consider jobs in fields and

industries that you may not have suspected at first line up with your major. • Be willing to move. Don’t limit your job search to areas close to home. Your dream job may be out there, but you may have to relocate to claim it. • Just get working. Don’t allow your job search to prevent you from taking a job elsewhere. If you don’t want to settle for something outside your chosen field, then consider taking an internship in that field or volunteer. You may be able to parlay those experiences into full-time positions down the road. At the least, you will gain work experience, demonstrate a work ethic and prevent lengthy gaps in your work history from seriously harming your future employability.

ST. CHARLES

East’s water polo coach didn’t feel ‘safe’ Letter cites team members’ actions, which are the subject of an investigation By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – The coach who resigned April 15 from her seat with the St. Charles East boys water polo team did so because she no longer felt “safe, comfortable or respected,” according to her resignation letter. The letter from Jaclyn Weber was obtained from St. Charles School District 303 through the Freedom of Information Act. Weber resigned suddenly and the team faced a cancellation of the rest of its season until school officials announced a new coach, Shawn Burke, last week. Burke is a dean at East. Weber would not comment. A voice mail left for East Athletic Director Michael

Sommerfeld was not returned. Weber’s letter of resignation states she was resigning “with great sadness.” “After much thought, I have decided that I no longer feel safe, comfortable or respected around the members of the Boys Water Polo Team,” states Weber’s letter. “I have always felt supported by you, however I feel that the words and actions of some of the members of the team have caused too much damage for me to continue in this position … Thank you for your empathy and understanding in this difficult situation.” In her letter, Weber also noted that she will not be coaching the summer water polo camp this year and seeks to be paid her full coaching

stipend. District 303 spokesman Jim Blaney said according to her contract, Weber’s stipend for coaching boys water polo was $4,666.40. Blaney said the team members’ actions are the subject of an investigation that could result in further student discipline. In an email sent March 28 to a boys water polo parent, Weber and to East Principal Charles Kyle, also obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, Sommerfeld noted how the coach was trying to address the team members’ behavior. “It appears that the boys on the team are not quite understanding what Coach Weber is trying to preach to them about their behavior and language,” Sommerfeld’s email said.

“Especially when representing us as ambassadors of STCE … With mistakes come consequences and Coach Weber, and I support her, has decided that the consequences for not representing our school properly will be the loss of playing time.” Sommerfeld’s email also said that each coach has a different approach of how to handle things “and I see no problem with the way coach Weber has handled the team thus far … Coach Weber is holding her team accountable for their actions and the boys have to operate within the framework of expectations and procedures she has laid out for them.” Sommerfeld’s email also notes he has received two special report letters from the Illinois High School Association “in regards to the

behavior and play of our water polo team so far this year. I have not received one letter this year up to that point. This has been highly disappointing to me.” Blaney said the special reports are used as an officiating tool. Two members of the varsity boys water polo team were ejected from a varsity tournament at Hoffman Estates High School on March 9, one for arguing with an official and the other for flagrant misconduct – comparable to a foul in basketball, Blaney said. “Instead of a normal foul, it’s a higher level of foul addressed within the rules of the game,” Blaney said. “If you get ejected from an IHSA event, you cannot play in the next game. You sit out the next game.”

GENEVA TOWNSHIP

By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Eleven absentee ballots have changed the totals for the contested Geneva Township clerk race, but not the outcome, according to unofficial results. All three candidates were write-ins. On election night, Geoffrey Carreiro appeared to have defeated Debbie Draus by one vote, but adding absentee votes counted so far gives Carreiro a bigger lead – 146 to 142. Another candidate, John Carlson, had 83 votes and his

total was unchanged by the absentee ballots, election supervisor Suzanne Fahnestock said. Fahnestock said the clerk’s office will accept absentee ballots until today, as long as they are postmarked on or before April 9. In all, the clerk’s office received 15 of the 23 absentee ballots still out for Geneva. County Clerk Jack Cunningham said his office has recounted 140 precincts for election day voting and 40 for early voting without any change in vote totals. Cunningham said the los-

“He had more supporters than I did. I wish him the best.” Debbie Draus Candidate about absentee ballot results ing candidate in the clerk’s race has the right to seek a recount. But he said no such recounts have been successful in his tenure. “We’ve had about 16 recounts, and it never changed a vote,” Cunningham said. Carreiro, who was knocked off the ballot in January and

ran as a write-in, said he is excited to be giving back to the community by serving as clerk, once all the absentee ballots are officially in. “Thank you for everybody who got involved and voted,” Carreiro. Draus said she had expected to get a few more votes through absentee balloting.

“We were just kind of hoping that he was not going to get any,” Draus said. “He had more supporters than I did. I wish him the best.” Draus said she would not challenge the outcome if Carreiro wins the clerk’s race. Although six ballots still are out, Draus said she did not think she could count on getting enough to make a difference in the outcome. Draus said she has no plans to run for any other offices. She said she would continue to volunteer locally with the Geneva Chamber of Commerce and festivals.

ANOTHER VIEW

Directing a manhunt in time of cameras, crowdsourcing BLOOMBERG NEWS For several hours each year on the third Monday of April, the 600 block of Boylston Street in Boston is the most surveilled place on Earth. Television crews, news and commercial photographers, Web videographers, friends, family, tourists – and, not incidentally, law enforcement – all have their electronic eyes trained on the finish line of the Boston Marathon. This partly explains the whiplash speed of the investigation into last week’s bombings. With so much information, a break in the case was inevitable. So were missteps. That’s what happens when you crowdsource a manhunt. It’s pointless to debate

whether this is a good or bad development. The technology that produces this information, not to mention the humans who use it, is here to stay. The question is how best to get them to work together. Consider – one of the breaks in the case came when Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in the bombing, gave an interview to police. “Bag, saw the guy, looked right at me,” he scrawled on a piece of paper because painkillers made it difficult for him to speak. Using details from Bauman and other eyewitnesses, the FBI then asked for the public’s help. The manhunt that followed was one of the most intense and surreal in U.S. history. As usual, there were false leads – and they spread with

unusual speed. (Thank you, Twitter and Facebook.) But once millions of websites and television screens showed the photos of the suspects, it was only a matter of time before the wisdom of the crowd positively identified them. Their apparent crime spree that night might not have happened otherwise, and they might have had enough time to flee. Which is sort of the point. In police work – as in politics, sports, finance, journalism and just about every other field – eventually a human being is necessary to make sense of collected information. As much as it may seem otherwise, technology isn’t a disembodied force over which we have no control, like the weather. Digital technology

may be binary, but the issues it raises are not. Closed-circuit televisions and webcams, for example, may both enhance security and violate privacy. The question is whether the benefits outweigh the costs. The answers to such questions are almost entirely situational. No one can plausibly argue that CCTVs weren’t useful this week in Boston; one from a department store provided the FBI with crucial video of a man dropping a suspicious backpack. The more general question, about the role of surveillance in an open society, is harder. New York City has 82 cameras in Times Square alone. Who is permitted to view that video, and when? For what purpose?

Consensus, like consensus on the weather, probably isn’t possible. In Britain, for example, there are almost 2 million CCTVs, public and private; “video grabs” of suspects and crimes are routinely provided to the news media. The public appears to have grown accustomed to them, though they aren’t universally popular. The debate, in Britain as elsewhere, is whether increased surveillance brings about safer streets, and if so whether it is a price worth paying. Our guess is that Americans will soon engage in a similar debate. “Everyone is watching.” This is what made the Boston Marathon such a tempting target in the first place. It’s also what may bring the perpetrators to justice.

Abdella Ahmad Tounisi, 18, a U.S. citizen of Aurora, has been charged with attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. He is scheduled to appear before U.S. Magistrate Judge Daniel G. Martin at 10 a.m. Tounisi is being held pending that detention hearing. A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago said the court appearance is expected to be largely procedural. Tounisi was arrested at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago on Friday night by federal, state and local anti-terrorism agents. Prosecutors said they believe Tounisi was attempting to board a flight to Istanbul. From Istanbul, Tounisi

planned to travel to the Turkey-Syria border to join with a group known as Jabhat al-Nusra, which the U.S. State Department considers an alias for al-Qaida in Iraq. Prosecutors said in a federal complaint against Tounisi that he purchased his airline ticket April 10, and eight days later, purchased a bus ticket from Istanbul to a city near the Syrian border. The complaint further states that Tounisi, beginning in March, had made online contact with an undercover FBI agent posing as a recruiter for the terrorist group. Prosecutors allege that, within those email exchanges, Tounisi “shared his plan to get to Syria by way of Turkey, as well as his willingness to die for the cause.” In other published reports, Tounisi’s father, Ahmad Tounisi of Aurora, has said he does not believe his son had done what the federal complaint alleges. He admitted his son had talked about going to Tunisia, Egypt and Syria to help people, but not to fight.

Repairs to former church estimated at more than $3M By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – A firm is estimating it will cost at least $3.1 million to repair the former First Baptist Church building at the corner of Washington and Wilson streets in downtown Batavia so the building can be reused. The city has owned the facility since 2006, including the late 19th century original church, a north addition built in the 1930s and a classroom wing built around 1959. The Batavia City Council recently hired Northbrook-based WJE to assess the building’s condition. WJE has inspected the building, and aldermen will review the firm’s recommendations as part of today’s joint meeting between the City Council’s Community Development and City Services committees. The firm recommended repairs be made to the exterior and interior of the 1889 church, 1930s addition and 1959 classroom wing, as well as the building’s mechanical systems. The firm recommended the city budget between $3.1 million and $3.5 million for the work. “Much of the recommended repair work is dependent upon the future adaptive reuse of the building and the intended function,” the firm stated in its report.

“Much of the recommended repair work is dependent upon the future adaptive reuse of the building and the intended function.” WJE Northbrook-based irm evaluating property However, the firm listed an estimated $775,000 in repairs that need to be done to prevent additional damage to the building materials or features. The repairs include a new roof, gutter repairs and new downspouts at the 1889 church; a new roof, scuppers and downspouts at the 1959 addition; masonry lintel repairs at the 1930s addition; and lintel repairs at the 1959 addition. Public Works Director Gary Holm told aldermen that over the past few years, the city has performed routine maintenance to ensure the facility did not fall into a state of disrepair. “It has recently been identified that the original church structure is in need of significant roof repairs,” Holm said in a memo to aldermen. “Also, the adjacent church parking lot, which is now used for public parking, is in need of significant patching.”

COUGARS SHORT HOPS Up next Cougars (RHP Lendy Castillo) vs. Peoria (LHP Joe Cuda), 11 a.m. today, AM-1280

Turnstile report Monday’s crowd of 7,025 pushed the Cougars’ season total to 39,324 fans in 11 home games. Kane County attracted 40,713 through 11 games last season.

Sight seen It was a battle of stamina between the two bullpens, but this had nothing to do with the game. After the conclusion of the national anthem, the two bullpens stood in place down the lines, lined up single file with caps on their chests. It took an entire half inning for someone to give in. The Cougars ’pen tipped their hats and took their seats as the bottom of the first started, sending the Peoria relievers into exuberance at their victory in this endurance test.

Cubs brass will be excited because It might not have been like the multihit games he turned in over the weekend, but Rock Shoulders reached base three times, walking three times and raising his on-base percentage to .486.

Cubs brass will cringe because Third baseman Jeimer Candelario made a pair of throwing errors on the afternoon. He now has five errors through 16 games. Also, reliever Brian Smith walked a pair in his ⅔ innings of work Monday. He leads the team with seven free passes issued this season.

The closer Though Cougars starting pitcher Michael Heesch has an ERA of 3.21, surrendered just five earned runs all season and turned in two solid outings in three starts this season, he’s still looking for his first win. He ranks second on the team with 12 strikeouts.

Bullpen disaster Cougars can’t hold onto lead, lose to Chiefs By VINNIE DUBER editorial@kcchronicle.com GENEVA – Despite another strong outing by a starting pitcher and an early four-run lead, the Kane County Cougars’ bullpen couldn’t close the deal Monday. Cougars starter Michael Heesch went six innings and allowed two runs against the visiting Peoria Chiefs, but the Chiefs tagged the Kane County bullpen for five runs in the top of the seventh and held on to hand the Cougars a 9-6 defeat at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark. Heesch turned in a solid performance for the second time in three starts and bounced back from a rough outing last time out. The lefthander struck out five and lowered his ERA to 3.21 on the season. He yielded to Brian Smith to start the seventh, but the reliever had a nightmarish afternoon, facing eight batters, retiring only two and giving up five runs. When Heesch left, the Cougars led 5-2. But when Matt Iannazzo – the seventh inning’s second relief pitcher – finally ended the inning, it was a 7-5 Peoria advantage. Only one of the runs Smith surrendered in the seventh was on an error, but the damage speaks for itself. Iannazzo continued the trend, walking the first two batters he faced. The first free pass loaded the bases, and the second forced in a run. “In this league and lower levels, if you throw strikes and catch the ball, usually you’re in pretty good shape,” Cougars manager Mark Johnson said. “[If] they hit it out of the park, they hit it out of the park, but we have to throw strikes. ... You’ve got to make them put it in play, especially at this level. You can’t give them too much credit. For whatever reason, we just couldn’t get it over the plate.” Cougars first baseman

Kane County Cougars second baseman Gioskar Amaya throws to first base during the Cougars’ 9-6 loss Monday against the Peoria Chiefs at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva. Dan Vogelbach hit a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh to pull the Cougars within one, but the Chiefs scored two insurance runs in the ninth off Iannazzo to cement the win. The bullpen erased a good day for Heesch, the latest in a recent string of solid outings by Cougars starting pitchers. Heesch credited the rotation’s recent success to more consistency in the schedule. “With all the rainouts and everything, we’re kind of getting back into a rotation, so we’ll see this time through and the second time through getting back into the five-man [rotation] and having consistent days rest,” Heesch said.

“You lose a lot of rhythm, especially coming off spring training early on. It’s nice in the middle of the season but not early on when you’re trying to establish a rhythm. But I think we’ve handled it pretty well as a staff.” The Cougars built their initial lead by scoring five runs in the first two innings, highlighted by shortstop Marco Hernandez’s two-run double in the first. Designated hitter Rock Shoulders, who is off to a scorching start for Kane County, saw his six-game hitting streak snapped after finishing 0 for 2 Monday, but he still reached base three times, all by walks.

Rakow, noting that several teams in the conference that used to be easier wins are now on the upswing, said he’s not sweating the conference race. Given the way the season has unfolded, Rakow isn’t yet sure how realistic his team’s chances are. “If we can win conference, that’ll be great,” Rakow said. “If not, so be it. Right now it’s still trying to figure out who the players are and

who aren’t.”

Backstop bodes well for Saints Junior Adam Rojas is drawing good reviews in his first season as St. Charles East’s catcher. Senior pitcher Troy Dykhuis said Rojas is strong defensively. “He’s got a very good arm and I’m real confident throwing the curveball in the dirt and knowing he’ll be able to block it,” Dykhuis said. “Just all the way round, a very good player.” East coach Len Asquini has other options with catching experience – namely Joe Hoscheit and Brian Sobieski – but likes that Rojas’ emergence allows those two big

bats to focus more on their offense. Rojas also showcased his durability Saturday, catching both legs of East’s doubleheader sweep against Elgin. “He’s a workhorse back there,” Dykhuis said.

St. Charles East’s three-headed monster of Huskisson, Starai and Dykhuis has been especially impressive, and the performance of Batavia’s starters has been right up there with them most of the season.

Geneva and St. Charles North haven’t been quite as strong top to bottom but the Vikings and North Stars also have some quality arms to throw at lineups.

All the teams in the area have been hit hard by postponements this spring but none have seen their schedule dented worse than Marmion. The Cadets entered the week having played only eight games on the season, three coming on a spring break trip to Tennessee. The Cadets completed a total of zero games all last week. Marmion was in the fifth inning of a game against Marian Central on April 15 when rain suspended the game. Marmion coach Dave Rakow said tending to the Cadets’ home field has been straining. “Our field looks the same as it does when it gets an inch of rain,” Rakow said Saturday, the day of the Cadets’ most recent cancellation. “I guess that’s the good news. The thing that’s worrying us about our field in particular is a spot on the grass by first base that’s puddling up that’s difficult to treat. … When you have standing water in grass, that’s a problem. I don’t know why that’s happening.” Marmion was 4-4 going into Monday’s game against Aurora Christian. “We’ve got talent but we’re really [inexperienced] and we make stupid mistakes late in games, and it costs us so far,” Rakow said. “We need to learn how to finish the game.

Yo, Wade-rian! Check out BC softball’s mascot Fabled film boxer Rocky Balboa developed a reputation for hanging around bouts he wasn’t supposed to. The stuffed tiger doll Burlington Central softball coach Wade Maisto recently named for the character dangles from dugout fences by design. Maintaining a trend that started spontaneously during his first stint at Central – when Sylvester Stallone’s “Rocky” sequels still were being reviewed – Maisto unveiled what has been an effective surprise in his return to Rocket Hill. It’s the “Eye of the Tiger,” indeed. “I played that little music, kind of got them pumped up, and said, ‘Here you go, girls. Here’s our mascot,’ ” Maisto said. In “Rocky II,” a marketing guru kicks around the idea of a Rocky doll, something kids can pummel that “takes a terrific beating.” BC players are much more civil with their Rocky. After each game, Maisto determines the de facto MVP, who then is given temporary custody of the doll. She takes Rocky home, to practices and then to the next game, where players await the doll’s latest fashion. “Rocky just started as a tiger,” Maisto said. “Now he’s got hair and a tiara and piercings and bandanas and tattoos.” Junior pitcher Brooke Gaylord gets credit for Rocky’s mane, a pink wig she had lying around “from a Halloween costume forever ago.” She and her teammates have welcomed the ritual, which naturally lends itself to a chattery, peppy softball culture. Maisto, who guided

QUICK READ Kevin Druley Central from 1984 to ’98 and returned this season after Cray Allen took the coaching job at Harper College, simply wanted something to lighten the mood. Although it’s been nearly 31 years since the “Eye of the Tiger” song and concept was unveiled in “Rocky III,” Maisto finds its message of focus and perseverance universal. Truth be told, this mascot carries a much more profound meaning than past ones on Maisto’s high school or travel teams. Really, what kind of motivation can someone derive from a stuffed alligator named Elvis? That creation was introduced by one of Maisto’s players. Ditto for the “Super Banana” stuffed fruit that tagged along with Central’s Class A state tournament team in 1985, the same year “Rocky IV” was released. The mother of one Central student made him a banana costume to wear at state back then. These Rockets aren’t sure if Rocky will reach such a craze, so they’re just enjoying him at cuddly face value. “We know that at game time we need to be concentrating and taking it serious, and we know softball is a serious thing,” Gaylord said. “But we also want to have fun while we’re playing, and afterwards we can have fun with Rocky or our teammates or whatever.”

Hey what’s the

patient at the plate,” Starai said. “It got us a little deeper into counts, but we were able to get the job done today anyway.” Starai’s two wins against the Bulldogs put the Saints (10-5, 8-2) a game ahead of Batavia in the conference standings heading into the final game of the series Wednesday at Batavia, weather permitting. Starai did not allow a hit Matt Starai this time until Aaron Hurd beat out a dribbler in the fifth inning. The only solid hit the Bulldogs had was Luke Horton’s single to right leading off the seventh. Horton got as far as third base with two outs, but Starai struck out Hurd to end the game. Starai’s outing spoiled an almost equally impressive pitching performance by Batavia junior Colby Green (1-1), who allowed only one

Green still had to accept some blame for the run, since he hit Jack Dellostritto to give the Saints a base runner in the fifth and then made a pickoff attempt that was too hot for Horton to handle at first. Dellostritto moved to third on a groundout and scored when shortstop Billy Zwick uncharacteristically booted Joe Hoscheit’s grounder up the middle. Otherwise, Green handcuffed East with a curveball he threw consistently for strikes and a fastball that he kept low and on the outside corner of the plate, limiting

them to four hits. He walked one and struck out three. “He was hitting his spots and causing us a little bit of trouble,” East coach Len Asquini said. “He’s a tough little pitcher. We’ll have our hands full with him next year, too.” Holm, meanwhile, is hoping he’s seen the last of Starai, a senior. “We’ve got to run home and get the tarp on so we don’t see him again next week,” Holm said, not entirely in jest. “If we don’t see them Wednesday, we’ll probably see him next week or the week after.”

ST. CHARLES – It’s not often that a baseball team faces the same starting pitcher in the first two games of a series. That was the unusual situation Batavia found itself in Monday after rain washed away a pair of scheduled Upstate Eight Conference River Division games against St. Charles East last week. The Bulldogs (13-3, 7-3 UEC River) didn’t have any better luck against East right-hander Matt Starai in a 1-0 loss Monday than they did in April 16’s 4-0 defeat. Starai (5-0) shut out Batavia on two hits, just as he did in the series opener.

“We went with a similar game plan – attacked a lot on the hands,” Starai said. “It worked the last time, so we wanted to do something at least similar this time. We might have thrown a couple more breaking balls.” Those breaking balls complemented a fastball that topped out at 91 mph on at least one radar gun and was consistently in the upper 80s. Starai struck out five and walked two. “We weren’t striking out, we just weren’t getting very good swings on things,” Batavia coach Matt Holm said. “It’s a broken record. It’s the same thing I said last time. He’s a very good pitcher. If he gets ahead in the count, he’s got all four pitches he can throw for strikes, so you’re in trouble.” If the Bulldogs could take any solace in the loss, it was that they made Starai work a little harder this time, forcing him to throw more than 90 pitches. “They were a little more

KOVELS: ANTIQUES AND COLLECTING

BY TERRY KOVEL KOVELS.COM Most people have heard about the bout of “Tulipmania” that spread through the Netherlands in the 17th century, but few know about “Pteridomania,” or fern madness. In the 19th century, ferns were part of a popular health regimen. People would go into the woods to hunt for ferns or to study nature. It was good exercise for body and soul. People from all levels of society joined in searching for new varieties of ferns they could record, plant or dry and put in albums. The many varieties of ferns were soon featured on porcelains and iron garden furniture, and in paintings and interior decors. Green majolica plates shaped like fern leaves, iron benches by Coalbrookdale and children’s toy porcelain dishes by Ridgways were decorated with ferns. The madness continued into the 1880s, but even today ferns are popular house and garden plants. More than 10 varieties are offered in new mail-order garden catalogs, and even more can be found in nurseries in cities with a fern-friendly climate. It would be easy to find decorative examples of Pteridomania and form a collection today. *** Q: I’m 92 years old and am trying to get rid of some old possessions. A copy of the April 20, 1865, Philadelphia Inquirer has been in my family for ages. The front page has several articles about President Abraham Lincoln’s funeral. There are drawings (not photographs) of the funeral car and coffin. I’d like to sell it but don’t know the value. Can you help? A: Newspapers covering the death of President Lincoln are collectible. The value of old newspapers varies, depending on the importance of the historical event covered as well as condition and rarity. A front-page article with graphic art is more important than articles on inside pages or those without pictures. Before photography was commonly

used, illustrations were made from woodcuts. Some newspapers that are old but don’t cover significant events sell for under $10, while newer papers covering important events can sell for hundreds of dollars. Old newspapers become yellow and crumble if not stored properly, but newspapers printed on paper made from rag linen, common before 1876, don’t deteriorate as quickly as those made on modern paper. Newspapers should be stored flat and away from light, heat and moisture. Don’t store them in the attic or basement.

How can I open it without ruining the lock? A: Don’t try to pick the lock. Call a few professional locksmiths and find one who is comfortable working with an antique lock. You will find someone who can open it safely. *** Q: I have a tea cart that my parents bought in England in the early 1950s. It has been used by our family ever since, but not for serving tea. It’s on wheels and has two removable trays. There are two metal tags on the rail. One reads, “Staples Trolley, Prov Patent 22852/52.” The other reads, “Made by Staples & Co. Ltd., Wire Mattress & Bedstead Maker to the late King George VI.” Can you tell me how old the tea cart is, and if it has any value? A: The patent is a United Kingdom patent dated June 12, 1952, for improvements to “tea trolleys, dinner wagons and like dispensing trolleys.” Your tea trolley was made shortly before your parents bought it in the 1950s. A tea trolley is what the English call a tea cart or tea wagon, a wheeled cart that usually has two shelves and can be pushed from room to room. It’s handy for transporting

A: Sets like yours usually are referred to as “John Company” sets because that was the nickname for the British East India Co. The origins of the game of chess can be traced to India before the sixth century, and the game continues to be very popular there. During the British Raj (British rule) from 1858 to 1947, many sets with ivory pieces - some elaborate and some simple - were made. The value of yours depends on how elaborately it was carved and what condition the pieces are in. Sets that predate 1989 can sell for very high prices. That’s the year a worldwide ban on the sale of ivory was implemented. But you won’t see the sets for sale on eBay. It will not allow the sale of any ivory on its site. If you want to sell, contact a reputable auction house that sells on land.

ST. CHARLES – St. Charles North’s Riley Coomes reached base three times and Tim Misner had a two-run double Monday as the North Stars baseball team knocked off South Elgin, 6-4, in Upstate Eight Conference crossover play. North (8-7, 4-3 UEC River) prevailed despite being outhit, 11-8. The North Stars threw three pitchers at the Storm, with PJ O’Brien (1⅔ IP, one unearned run) earning the win in relief of Sawyer Chambers. The makeup game, which had been rescheduled for May 3, was moved to Monday when North’s original foe for Monday, York, had to reschedule, North coach Todd Genke said. The York game will be played today in St. Charles, weather-permitting.

Meyers and Brady Roberts each drove in two runs and Alex Troop improved to 2-0 on the mound for Marmion (5-4, 2-1 Suburban Christian Conference Blue). The Eagles scored all four of their runs in the top of the sixth.

While nesting boxes are a big help, the natural place for a bluebird to build a nest is in a hole in a tree or a fence post. Unlike a woodpecker, they cannot make a hole so they must find a suitable hole with a small opening in which to build their nest. Birds that build their nest in this way are called:

But the future of bluebird populations is promising because, with the help of the National Bluebird Society, people are setting out nest boxes and starting bluebirds trails with a series of nest boxes along a certain route in suitable habitat to help increase populations.

Around the start of the 20th century, good insect-eating birds like the bluebird started to disappear. The trees where they built their nests were cut down. Two birds brought from other countries, the House Sparrow and the European Starling, took over many of the holes where bluebirds built their nests. Sometimes bluebirds died in the fight to save their nesting sites.

Bluebirds like to live near meadows dotted with trees. In warm months, they eat insects that they find in grassy fields. In the fall and winter, they eat berries that grow in wooded areas.

Farmers and others have learned that by building and monitoring special nest boxes, or birdhouses, they can help bluebirds safely raise their young. Now people in Canada and the United States are putting up nesting boxes to help the bluebird make a comeback.

If you were to peek inside a bluebird’s nesting area, you might find a nest with three to six eggs – each about the size of a grape. If the birds have hatched, you might see the little guys opening their mouths wide, WIDE, WIDE, hoping some food will be delivered.

HOROSCOPE By BERNICE BEDE OSOL Newspaper Enterprise Association TODAY – Although your material prospects look encouraging, this doesn’t mean that you won’t experience problems during coming months. Be prepared to take the good with the bad. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – People whose work you oversee will likely require some skillful management. Their production could suffer if they are not given proper guidance. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Taking a risk on an unpredictable situation could be an exercise in futility. This might be one of those days when even sure things are difficult to achieve. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Rather than respond in kind, make an effort to be affectionate with your special someone if, for no reason, he or she is a bit on the cranky side. You can brighten things up, if you try. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – If you hope to really get things done, you’ll have to be industrious. If you neglect your responsibilities, matters will only get worse. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – If your credit cards are too accessible, there is a strong possibility that you will waste your money on extravagances. Better lock up your wallet. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Should you have to deal with a surly, impossible to please individual, don’t blame yourself. You didn’t fail, he or she did. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – If you feel impelled to do something for another, do it out of the goodness of your heart and not because you’re angling for a reward. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Watch out, because there’s a strong possibility you might spend funds that will be needed in the future. Opting for instant gratification could be your downfall. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Be mindful of whom you talk to when socializing. Don’t squander all your attention on a hot shot who doesn’t give a hoot about you or anyone else. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Don’t get into a situation similar to one that has caused you all kinds of problems in the past. Remember the hard lessons you’ve learned. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Just because you know the other party well is no reason to ignore the details in a joint agreement. Leave no reason for problems to develop down the line. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Your associates will not be manipulated if they don’t like the way you want to handle a project. Listen to and implement their ideas.

Ryan Lochte, Ke$ha and the rules for celebrity reality shows By EMILY YAHR The Washington Post In order to be famous, it’s no longer enough to just be famous. You can win a gold medal at the Olympics or have a platinum-selling album, but these days, you also have to be – cringe with us here – a brand. That means endorsement deals, Twitter followers, maybe even serving as spokesperson for a flavored water. A scandal or two usually doesn’t hurt. But what can help set apart the sorta famous from the very famous is the celebrity reality show, or “docu-series” if you’re feeling fancy. These behind-thescenes peeks at stars’ lives simultaneously keep them in the spotlight while bringing them down to earth, and (they hope) gain them millions of new fans. It’s a difficult line to walk, and some series can come off as desperate and fake. If it’s done well, though, it can catapult lower-tier celebs to fame that lasts for years. This week marked the debut of such a show. On Sunday, E! aired “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?,” a look at the Olympic swimmer who made headlines at last year’s London games – not so much for his victories and friendly rivalry with teammate Michael Phelps as for a flurry of awkward interviews and self-deluded sound bites (trademarking the catchword “Jeah!”) that gave him a party-boy reputation. On Tuesday, April 23, MTV premieres “Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life,” which follows the pop star who shot to fame after the release of her 2009 mega-hit “Tik Tok,” on which she sang about brushing her teeth with Jack Daniels. A few million album sales later, the singer – born Kesha Sebert – become known for her dance-rap anthems, being covered in glitter and embracing weird for the sake of weird. Looking at the stars of both series, it’s easy to see similarities: two people talented in their respective fields, with outlandish public personas that threaten to overshadow their achievements. There’s a lot to gain from so much personal exposure, and even more to lose. Whether or not the shows are good

The series will follow her life from attention-grabbing wardrobe choices to performances throughout the country. is almost irrelevant (both fall in the category of “entertaining in an aggressively mediocre way”). More important, both serve as warnings – or guides – to stars wanting to kick their fame up to the next level. What are the most important lessons to take away from the “celeb docu-series” genre? These people are famous for having a skill. You need to remind people of that fact. “How many medals do you have?” an off-screen producer is heard asking Lochte, who sits for his on-camera interviews wearing a bulky hoodie and blank expression, one of the few scenes that isn’t a gratuitously shirtless shot. Lochte sighs. “I don’t even remember what I got at the Olympics,” he confesses. An animated chalkboard pops up: Lochte’s had five gold, three silver and three bronze medals at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics (that equals 11, the graphic helpfully summarizes). He also holds four world records. The show doesn’t go into his accomplishments in the pool in great detail. Much is made of his train-

ing starting at 7 a.m. every day, since it’s a given that he partied hard the night before. “Tomorrow morning, be ready, be responsible,” his swim coach sternly tells him after Lochte mentions he’s going out for “a couple beers.” “My Crazy Beautiful Life,” however, focuses much more on Ke$ha’s career, particularly what happens on stage. There are the obligatory shots of her trademark eye-searing set pieces and costumes – glitter guns, horse heads, neon glow-in-the-dark paint, sequins, lasers. The series also shows what happens after the singer collapses backstage after performing, and it’s not glamorous. There’s gasping for breath, chugging water, and extreme makeup removal – and in one instance right before a huge show in Europe, she loses her voice. As her manager explains that she needs to get lots of rest and sleep next to a humidifier, Ke$ha is on the verge of tears as she scrawls “I HATE THIS” on a piece of paper. No, a lecture on proper use of a humidifier doesn’t scream rock-androll. But it’s an intriguing look at all the little details of celebrity, and the show is more interesting for including such scenes. To make sure you aren’t labeled as an annoying overachiever, it’s important to develop a distinct public image. And for a reality show, it’s better if that image is “a crazy person.” There’s a fascinating dichotomy between both stars’ skill sets and public images. Both are remarkably talented in areas that require a lot of work, but both find plenty of time to act rather strangely. Are stars really just like us? Probably not. Yet the key to succeeding (as a long-term celebrity, anyway) is to have a camera crew follow you around and try to convince the world that that’s the case.

• “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” (30 minutes) airs at 9 p.m. Sundays on E! “Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life” (30 minutes) debuts at 10 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, on MTV.

And before he does, make sure he is up to the task of being social because, as it stands, I agree his behavior is rude. He’s not a teenager with his nose buried in a cellphone; he’s an adult who should know better. If he finds your parents’ company less than stimulating, he should be a better actor. Dear Abby: Last year my darling mother lost her battle with cancer. Aside from grief and loss, a bigger issue looms over my life. It concerns my stepdad. Before Mom was diagnosed, my stepfather was a selfish, self-centered man. At times he was mean to her to the point that I wanted her to leave him. In fairness, once Mom was diagnosed, he stepped up to the plate and took excellent care of her until her death.

I have other issues with my stepfather. He was inappropriate with me, sharing things he should have kept to himself. It caused my mother great heartache and made me lose respect for him. I am still uncomfortable around him. Mom knew how I felt and understood. Now that she is gone, do I have any obligation to him? He has a strained relationship with his only child. My sibling thinks I’m too hard on him, but doesn’t understand the major problems our stepdad caused. I don’t want to continue pretending I like him. Please help, Abby. – Searching For Guidance Dear Searching: You are entitled to your feelings and, no, you do not have any obligation to your stepfather. If your sibling wants to see him, that’s his/her choice. Explain to your sibling your reasons for feeling the way you do – and if you encounter your stepfather during family gatherings, be polite and don’t linger. That isn’t pretending to like the man; it is good manners. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

New blood test helps doctors identify heart attacks quicker Dear Doctor K: I’ve heard there’s a new test that can help doctors diagnose a heart attack more quickly. Can you tell me about it? Dear Reader: A heart attack is instantly recognizable on TV and in the movies: The actor breaks into a sweat and clutches his heart. But in real life, a heart attack isn’t always so easy to identify. There are many different conditions that can cause pain in the chest and sudden sweating. A heart attack is just one of many possibilities, though one of the most serious. The main tests doctors use to diagnose heart attacks are blood tests and heart tests (the first of which is usually an electrocardiogram, or EKG). The results of the EKG are immediate, but the blood tests can take hours to give results. Over the years, different types of blood tests have been used to diagnose heart attacks. In recent years, the most widely used tests measure the blood levels of different types of a chemical called troponin. A heart attack kills some heart muscle cells. When they die, they spill the troponin that is inside them into the blood. Within the first few hours of

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff a heart attack, though, both the troponin level and the EKG can be normal. People can spend 12 to 16 hours waiting in an emergency room. That’s a long time to sit there wondering if you might have a condition that could kill you, or if it’s just a bad case of acid reflux that’s causing the pain. A new blood test may help speed the diagnosis. This is important because the sooner a heart attack is diagnosed, the sooner treatment can begin. And the sooner treatment begins, the more heart muscle can be saved. The new test that you’re probably asking about is a new high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T test that can detect smaller amounts of troponin in the bloodstream. This could let doctors identify small heart attacks that would otherwise go undiagnosed, or identify heart attacks earlier. We know it’s important for doctors to quickly diagnose a heart attack. But it’s even more

important for people with chest pain or other signs of a heart attack to get to the hospital as soon as possible. Call 911 right away if you have: • Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness, burning, tightness or pain in the center of your chest; • Pain, numbness, pinching, prickling or other uncomfortable sensations in one or both arms, your back, neck, jaw or stomach; • Shortness of breath; • Sudden nausea or vomiting; • Lightheadedness or dizziness; • Unusual fatigue, especially if accompanied by a great deal of sweating; • Sudden heaviness, weakness or aching in one or both arms. These symptoms don’t mean you are definitely having a heart attack, but they do mean the risk that you’re having a heart attack is high enough that you need to get it checked out, and fast.

Dr. Wallace: I am in the ninth grade, and our family will soon be moving to a suburb of Detroit because my dad has been transferred there. I’m happy for my dad, and the thought of being in the Detroit area is sort of exciting. Any tips you might provide would help – Lynn, Rockford, Ill. Dear Lynn: It’s never easy changing schools, especially when the new school is more than 400 miles from old friends. But as you say, it can be an exciting adventure. Dr. Judith Meyers-Walls, a professor of child development at Purdue University, offers the following tips to help teens get started on the right foot: • Take the time to find what the norm is at your school. Girls, before you wear that vinyl miniskirt, or guys, those torn blue jeans, look around. Is everyone else dressed conservatively? Pay close attention to the way things are run and the things people wear and say. Then when you make your fashion decisions, you’ll have an idea whether you’re likely to fit in or stand out. • Don’t hesitate to let people know you’re new. Say something like, “Excuse me, but I’m new here. Could you please show me where the cafeteria is?” The other students will probably enjoy the chance to show you around and fill you in on things. • Join an extracurricular club. You won’t feel like a stranger for long if you belong to a school club. “If you worked for the newspaper at your old school, join the staff of the paper at your new one. It helps to keep some consistency in your life when everything around you is changing,” Myers-Walls

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace advises. • Be outgoing. As the new teen, you’ll have to make an extra effort to talk to others. • Don’t pretend to be something you’re not. Boasting, lying about your experiences or putting on airs in order to get along with a new group of kids won’t get you very far. Even if it does help you break into a group, you’ll feel uncomfortable if you have adopted behavior that is in conflict with your real beliefs and values. Dr. Wallace: I’m mad as can be, and I don’t know what to do about it. I read our student handbook and didn’t see anything about a student’s hair color. I was planning to attend a fraternity party with my boyfriend (he’s in college; I’m in high school), and all the girls were to have wild-colored hair. My friend and I spent over three hours coming up with a pink base with blue streaks. It really looked cool. Well, when I went to school on Monday, the vice principal sent me home and told me not to return until I came back with “normal” hair color, even if it wasn’t the same color (dishwasher blond) that it once was. I was furious. Can the school really dictate my hair color? – Nameless, Madison, Wis. Dear Nameless: Had you been a student attending classes where I was principal, you also would have been sent home. Pink and blue hair simply causes too much distraction in a learning facility. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@ galesburg.net.

Dear Abby: I have been married for 18 years to a man I have a good relationship with. My problem is he has always been extremely rude to my parents. They aren’t critical or judgmental of him, and they try hard to be friendly and accommodating, perhaps thinking it might lessen the rudeness he continually shows them. Example: If my mom asks him how his parents are doing, without looking up from his cellphone he’ll grunt and say, “They’re fine” – nothing more. When we go out to dinner, he usually doesn’t join in the conversation. Instead, he just sits there with a dismissive, bored look on his face. I have told him I don’t want him to come with me when I visit them. Can you offer any suggestions for how this issue can be resolved? – Tired Of It In Toronto Dear Tired Of It: It would be helpful to know WHY your husband behaves this way. Does he dislike your folks? Does he have so little in common with them he doesn’t know how to participate in a conversation with them? Is he this way with any other people? Perhaps it would be better for

Too many losers? Eliminate one loser

CELEBRITY CIPHER

Richard Cobden, a 19th-century English politician, said, “A newspaper should be the maximum of information and the minimum of comment.” If you get the maximum of information at the bridge table and use it wisely, you will make the minimum of errors. First, though, let’s look at the auction. What should South bid on the second round? He should rebid two hearts, guaranteeing at least a six-card suit and 12-14 points, a minimum opening. With only five hearts, South would show a second suit, bid no-trump, or raise spades (perhaps with only three). Then North, knowing about an eight-card fit, raises to four hearts. (Note that four spades by North fails if East leads a low diamond and West shifts to the club jack.) After West leads the club jack, what should South do? First, he should count losers by looking at his 13 cards and taking dummy’s winners into account. He has four: one spade, two diamonds and one club. Second, he counts winners. Here, he enjoys 10: two spades, six hearts, one diamond and one club. So, he can get home as long as he does not lose four tricks. To eliminate that spade loser, declarer must establish his diamond winner. Suppose South tries dummy’s club queen, captures East’s king with his ace, draws trumps, and leads a diamond. The defenders can win, cash a club, and shift to spades, but South wins in his hand and plays another diamond. With the spade ace still in the dummy, he has 10 winners.

What You Should Know Before Buying a Hearing Aid I am often asked why it’s so important to buy a hearing aid from Geneva Hearing Services. There are several issues to consider, but these are the most important. 1) Geneva Hearing Services employs only licensed audiologists. There are two professionals who are licensed in the state of Illinois to sell hearing aids: an audiologist and a hearing aid dispenser. a. Audiologists are required to have a Master’s or Doctoral level degree. They are clinically and academically trained in all aspects of hearing and balance disorders, including tinnitus. b. Hearing aid dispensers must have a minimum of an associates degree. 2) Geneva Hearing Services is not contracted or owned by any one manufacturer. This means we offer unbiased professional care and routinely update our training in order to provide our patients with the latest technologies available. This is not always the case at other offices. Stores like Beltone, Miracle Ear and AccuQuest will typically recommend their own brand/manufacture of hearing aid, thus limiting the options available to the patient.
