SYCAMORE – Federal marshals are searching for two suspected crack cocaine dealers after six of the 15 people charged in connection with the alleged drug ring appeared in DeKalb County court Wednesday. Authorities said they suspect three Chicago men of running the drug ring in DeKalb and the surrounding area: Terry M. Griffin, 31, Antonnio B. Sanders, 31, and Christopher E. Bell, 29. Griffin was the ringleader, while Bell and Sand-

ers ran the drugs from Chicago to DeKalb County, DeKalb County Sheriff Chief Deputy Gary Dumdie said. DeKalb County Sheriff Roger Scott said he hoped the arrests and two outstanding warrants would scare dealers away from the DeKalb area. The investigation, led by the sheriff’s office with assistance from DeKalb police and the federal Drug Enforcement Agency, began when authorities received a tip in January. “I think it will make the dealers slow down and look for other loca-

tions than DeKalb County, which would be our goal,” Scott said. “It also shows those from the outside, whether Chicago or Rockford or Aurora, that we’re not asleep out here and we have connections with the DEA and other agencies to make fullscale investigations and significant arrests.” Sanders was arrested Tuesday in Chicago on nine counts of criminal drug conspiracy and delivery; the most serious charge he faces is typically punishable by up to 7 years in prison. His bail was set at $500,000, which would require posting $50,000

for release while the case was pending. Griffin, whom Dumdie said has gang ties, faces a handful of charges alleging he possessed and delivered controlled substances. His bail is $1 million, and if convicted, he likely faces up to 30 years in prison. Bell is accused of delivering and conspiring to deliver controlled substances, and his bail was set at $500,000. The most serious charge he faces typically is punishable with up to 15 years in prison.

ADVANCED PLACEMENT CLASSES GAIN POPULARITY

Accepting the challenge

By JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – Labor leaders threatened a lawsuit Wednesday over House Speaker Michael Madigan’s pension-reform proposal to lower the retirement benefits of public employees in Illinois, but a committee advanced the plan anyway. Madigan pledged a vote today on the House floor after the Personnel and Pensions Committee approved it, 9-1. Hours later, Senate President John Cullerton announced that negotiations he’s had with union leaders has yielded a “credible and constitutional plan” he said he’d put before his Democratic caucus and Madigan. The far-reaching Madigan plan represents the Chicago Democrat’s first direct involvement on a piece of legislation to tackle a $96.7 billion pension deficit, kicking the General Assembly’s machinery into high gear. The bill addresses four of the five pension systems representing state employees, university professionals, primary-school teachMichael ers and legislators. Madigan “It will bring solIll. speaker of vency and stability to the House the four systems,” said Madigan, later explaining that the fifth account, covering judges, was left out as a “practical judgment.” Reform advocates say judges are exempted because it will be the Supreme Court that ultimately decides the plan’s constitutionality, a likelihood endorsed by half-a-dozen union leaders protesting the legislation. “It will invite and get a legal challenge,” said Mike Stout, business manager of ISEA-Laborers’ Local 2002. Unions have long contested legislators’ attempts to get the pension mess under control, holding up a provision in the state constitution prohibiting the state from diminishing promised pension benefits. They point out that employees have for decades made required pension contributions out of their paychecks while the state notoriously shorted or even skipped pension payments. Union official Henry Bayer said the plan appears to take care of the underfunding, but it shouldn’t at the expense of employees.

Bowlers surprise WWII veteran The bowlers of the Business and Professional League at Mardi Gras Lanes wanted to do something special for their oldest member Tuesday. Don Mattson of Malta rounded out the season with an average of 145 despite a pinched nerve in his neck. The 89-year-old is a World War II veteran, so fellow bowler Pat O’Donnell figured they shouldn’t pass up an opportunity to thank Mattson for his service. “We need to say thank you to those who have served and those who still serve for the freedom we have,” O’Donnell said. “I think that’s important to do.” O’Donnell arranged for Marine Staff Sgt. Chase Kovarik to surprise Mattson at the league banquet with a baseball cap and patch, as well as a few kind words. Kovarik, a Marine recruiter living in Maple Park, described how Mattson enlisted in 1943, ultimately sending $25 out of each month’s $50 paycheck back home. “There’s no ex-Marine; there’s no former Marine,” Kovarik explained. “There’s only Marines.” As Mattson received a standing ovation, Kovarik thanked him for being part of the Greatest Generation. Mattson, meanwhile, was surprised by the presentation. “That’s a long time ago, 1945,” Mattson said. “I’m glad to still be around and able to bowl.” In fact, 1945 was just a few years

Marine Staff Sgt. Chase Kovarik of Maple Park shares a laugh with World War II Marine veteran Don Mattson, 89, of Malta on Tuesday at Mardi Gras Lanes in DeKalb.

Kovarik spends most of his time, though, as a Marine recruiter in DeKalb. He enlisted the summer before his senior year in high school and left for boot camp in San Diego in June 2002, later serving as a helicopter crew chief. Now, he tells young people that being a Marine is a calling. “It’s not a job,” Kovarik said. “It’s a lifestyle.”

before Mattson started bowling. He’s been knocking down pins for 65 years, and was inducted into the DeKalb Area USBC’s Hall of Fame in 1995. He expects to be back for the next season. “I’m planning on it,” Mattson said. “If I’m still here.” Recruiting future heroes: Kovarik does presentations like this from time to time. About 18 months ago, he helped ensure a plaque with Lance Cpl. Michael Finley’s name was hung in Hinckley High School.

3 arrested, charged in Boston probe This photo released Wednesday by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in a federal criminal complaint, shows fireworks from inside a backpack belonging to Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaeva.

By BRIDGET MURPHY and DENISE LAVOIE The Associated Press BOSTON – Three college friends of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were arrested and accused Wednesday of trying to protect him by going into his dorm room and getting rid of a backpack filled with hollowed-out fireworks three days after the deadly attack. The three 19-year-olds were not accused of any role in the bombing. But in a footnote in the court papers outlining the charges, the FBI said that about a month before the tragedy, Tsarnaev told two of them that he knew how to make a bomb. Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev, both of whom came to the U.S. from Kazakhstan, were charged with conspiring to obstruct justice by concealing and destroying evidence. Robel Phillipos, who graduated from a Cambridge high school with Tsarnaev, was charged with lying to investigators about the visit to Tsarnaev’s room. According to the FBI account, just hours after surveillance camera photos of the Boston Marathon suspects were flashed around the world April 18, Tsnarnaev’s friends suspected he was one of the bombers and removed the backpack along with a laptop from Tsarnaev’s room at the University of

Massachusetts Dartmouth. One of them later threw the backpack in the garbage, and it wound up in a landfill, where it was discovered by law enforcement officers last week, authorities said. In the backpack were fireworks that had been emptied of their gunpowder. The lawyers for the Kazakh students said their clients had nothing to do with the bombing and were just as shocked by the crime as everyone else. Phillipos’ attorney, Derege Demissie, said outside court: “The only allegation is he made a misrepresentation.” At a court appearance, the Kazakh students did not request bail and will be

held for another hearing May 14. Phillipos was held for a hearing on Monday. If convicted, Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov could get up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Phillipos faces a maximum of eight years behind bars and a $250,000 fine. Three people were killed and more than 260 wounded on April 15 when two bombs exploded near the marathon’s finish line. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died after a gunfight with police days later. His 19-year-old brother was captured and lies in a prison hospital. Their mother has said the allegations against them are lies.

Daily Chronicle / Daily-Chronicle.com

NEW YORK – Violence, gore and gunplay were staples on prime-time TV even in the most sensitive period directly after the Newtown school shooting. A study of 392 prime-time scripted programs on broadcast networks shown during the month after Vice President Joe Biden’s January meeting with entertainment industry executives on the topic revealed that 193 had some incident of violence,

according to the Parents Television Council. Some are cartoonish – quite literally, with Homer strangling Bart for mouthing off on “The Simpsons” – but there is plenty of gunplay, stabbings and beat-downs. Here’s a sample of the incidents captured by the PTC between Jan. 11 and Feb. 11: • A woman on Fox’s “The Following” jams an ice pick into her eye. • A man threatens hospital workers on NBC’s “Chicago Fire” with a gun before he’s disabled with a Taser.

Real life has continued to intrude on TV entertainment as the months go by. NBC pulled an episode of its serial killer drama “Hannibal” after the Boston Marathon bombing, as did ABC with a “Castle” episode where a character stepped on a pressure-sensitive bomb. Some Newtown parents objected to a recent “Glee” episode that depicted a school shooting. “I think it is only going to get worse,” said Dr. Victor Strasburger, pediatrics professor at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine,

who has written frequently on the topic of violence in the media. He said media executives are “not willing to own up to their public health responsibilities.” TV executives are reluctant to talk about violent content, and when pressed question any link between what they air on TV and aggressive behavior in real life. Schedules get shifted around when tragic events are in the news, but there’s no indication they have changed the types of programs being made.

Project adds retail, living spaces Third phase of Brookview Terrace under construction By DAVID THOMAS dthomas@shawmedia.com DeKALB – New apartments and stores are being added as part of a new, mixed-use development behind Advance Auto Parts at 2151 Sycamore Road. Developer John Pappas said plans for Brookview Terrace, a development with seven small commercial spaces and eight apartments, have been in the works for about three years. “This was the time to pull the trigger,” said Pappas, who owns Pappas Development. “There is demand for highend, executive apartments.” In 2010, the DeKalb City Council approved a proposal from Pappas to build three commercial buildings in the area. Construction on two of the buildings was completed in 2011. Pappas now is building the third, and largest, of the development. Pappas said the two-bedroom apartments would be

Rob Winner – rwinner@shawmedia.com

Construction is underway Wednesday on DeKalb developer John Pappas’ mixed-use development behind the Advance Auto Parts at 2151 Sycamore Road in DeKalb. on the second floor of the new building. Each apartment will have between 1,350 to 1,400 square feet of space, along with granite countertops, hardwood floors, a shared exercise facility, and balconies overlooking the nearby Nature Trail, Pappas said. Pappas estimated the rent for the new apartments would

be between $1,100 and $1,200 a month. Ralph Crafton, a broker at Hoffman Realty, a real estate brokerage firm based in Monroe Center, said the apartments would not be aimed at college students. “By nature and design, we’re targeting more mature professionals,” Crafton said. The 11,500 square feet of

commercial space on the first floor will be divided into seven business suites. Pappas said he is talking with prospective tenants for the commercial space, including a brewing company as well as some offices. He declined to comment further because leases have not been signed. Roger Hopkins, the economic development consultant for the city of DeKalb, said he expected the building would attract service-based businesses, not retail. “It’s a recognition on our part, unless you have real strong visibility from a major highway, you’re not going to attract good commercial tenants,” Hopkins said, referring to similar locations in the city. Pappas said he expected construction would be finished within four months. “I’m excited about it,” Pappas said. “It’s a great thing for the city. It puts people to work. It’s positive all the way around.”

by Romero in 1998 as a fundraising effort for his Relay for Life team. What started out as a small affair turned into nearly 500 people in attendance. Romero said he ran out of food and couldn’t keep up. “It was a big disaster,” he said. “I didn’t even know what I was doing.” Despite the chaos, Romero managed to raise about $600. The event has continued to grow in size, participation and fundraising ever since. Last year, Romero was able

to donate $10,000 between the Conexion Comunidad and the Kishwaukee College Foundation for scholarships. Romero said he would be thrilled to raise that amount again this year. With the final stages of preparation in place, Romero said he is counting on the weather to hold up for the festival, which will go on rain or shine. “We never have canceled an event so far,” he said. “I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Loretta Goodwin, 50, of DeKalb, was arrested March 19 for allegedly having less than 15 grams of cocaine. A police officer talked with her while she was sitting in her vehicle, thought she was acting suspiciously, and ultimately found the cocaine and a crack pipe in the car, court records show. If convicted, Goodwin likely could be sentenced to up to three years in prison. Deandre D. Calvin, 26, of DeKalb, was arrested March 27 for allegedly having 35 grams of cocaine, 3 grams of heroin and marijuana after police searched his home in the 800 block of Normal Road in DeKalb. The most serious charge Calvin faces typically is punishable by up to 30 years in prison.

8NATION BRIEFS Immigration debate gives life to annual rallies

Monica Maschak – mmaschak@shawmedia.com

Sycamore senior Henry Johnson speaks Tuesday during an Advanced Placement literature class. These college-level courses will begin their two weeks of nationwide testing Monday.

Teachers encourage students to take advantage of AP courses • TESTS Continued from page A1 them eligible for college credit at most colleges. Sycamore School District 427 director of curriculum Kris Webster said the best part about the Advanced Placement offerings is that no student is turned away if they want to take a course. “When kids want to challenge themselves at that level, we want to give them the opportunity,” she said. Sycamore High School currently offers four Advanced Placement courses, but the program is growing at a healthy rate, Webster said. Genoa-Kingston School District 424 recently received a national AP Honor Roll award for increasing Advanced Placement enrollment with a greater percentage of students achieving at least the benchmark score. Although Sycamore High is increasing Advanced Placement enrollment, many of its students won’t actually be taking the tests next week. Only five of Rich Maje-

rus’ 21 Advanced Placement English literature students will take the course’s exam. He said this is because most of his students have already received college credit for the Advanced Placement language course, and many schools don’t grant credit for both. “That’s something we really have to address,” he said. “My seniors are taking the test less and less.” Despite the lack of testing participation, many of Majerus’ students said they have learned valuable tools that will prepare them for college and beyond. “Analyzing literature has become second nature,” senior David Emmert said. Although she highly encourages students take the tests, Stafstrom said Advanced Placement courses are a great opportunity for all students to challenge themselves, whether they take the tests or not. “Just being in the AP class puts you at an advantage because of the rigor and demands and intellectual stimulation,” she said.

LOS ANGELES – Demonstrators demanded an overhaul of immigration laws Wednesday in an annual, nationwide ritual that carried a special sense of urgency as Congress considers sweeping legislation that would bring out of the shadows many of the estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. illegally. Thousands joined May Day rallies from Concord, N.H., to Los Angeles, where scores of marchers gathered downtown. The May Day crowds paled in comparison to the massive demonstrations of 2006 and 2007, during the last serious attempt to introduce major changes to the U.S. immigration system. Despite the large turnouts six years ago, many advocates of looser immigration laws felt they were outmaneuvered by opponents who flooded congressional offices

with phone calls and faxes at the behest of conservative talk-radio hosts.

Gitmo closure elusive; Obama looks at options WASHINGTON – Despite President Barack Obama’s new vow, closing the Guantanamo Bay prison is still a tough sell in Congress. So the White House may look instead toward smaller steps like transferring some terror suspects back overseas. Shutting down the prison at the U.S. naval base in Cuba has eluded Obama since he took office. In his first week, he signed an executive order for its closure, but Congress has used its budgetary power to block detainees from being moved to the United States. With 100 of the 166 prisoners on a hunger strike in protest of their indefinite detention and prison conditions, Obama is promising a renewed push be-

fore Congress and has ordered a review of his administrative options. The White House acknowledges its process to review prisoner cases for possible release has not been implemented quickly enough and said the president is considering reappointing a senior official at the State Department to focus on transfers out of the prison.

Mobile ads help grow Facebook’s revenue NEW YORK – A year ago Facebook was just testing the waters of mobile advertising, causing plenty of headaches for investors ahead of its massive initial public offering. On Wednesday, Facebook said nearly a third of its advertising revenue came from mobile in the first three months of the year, helping to push total revenue up 38 percent to surpass Wall Street’s expectations. Facebook’s net income and rev-

enue grew in the first quarter of the year, helped by an increase in mobile ad revenue, a figure that some skeptical investors have been watching closely.

5-year-old boy shoots sister, 2, in Kentucky BURKESVILLE, Ky. – In southern Kentucky, where children often get their first guns before they start first grade, Stephanie Sparks paid little attention as her 5-year-old son, Kristian, played with the rifle he was given last year. Then, as she stepped onto the front porch while cleaning the kitchen, “she heard the gun go off,” a coroner said. In a horrific accident Tuesday that shocked a rural area far removed from the national debate over gun control, the boy had killed his 2-year-old sister, Caroline, with a single shot to the chest.

Busted drug ring a wake up call for DeKalb

GOP in denial is George W. Bush’s real legacy George W. Bush, who united almost all Republicans during most of his time in national politics, now divides them. Most Republicans view his presidency favorably, and cheer his recent rise in the public’s esteem. A vocal group of conservatives, though, thinks of the Bush presidency as a wrong turn – a turn toward big government that the party needs to repudiate. The dedication of Bush’s presidential library last week reheated this long-simmering debate, which the party is no closer to settling than it was when Bush left office in January 2009. Veterans of the Bush administration shouldn’t get carried away celebrating his recovery in the polls. The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll has been asking people for years which party they trust most to handle various issues. It shows that voters trust Republicans less on taxes, the economy, controlling spending and reducing the deficit than they did before Bush became the leader of the Republican Party. The only issue on which Republicans do better than they did in the late 1990s is health care, and that improvement is entirely because of the debate over President Barack Obama’s health care plan. Bush’s critics forget something, too: The Republican Party was already in poor shape when he took control. It had lost two presidential elections in a row to Bill Clinton. Republicans had taken Congress in 1994 because the public didn’t want unified Democratic control of the government. But the defeat of Congress’s attempts, under House Speaker Newt Gingrich, to restrain Medicare spending and shut down Cabinet departments had left the party without any clear direction. Democrats outnumbered Republicans by almost as much

The failure of the Bush project led many conservatives to think that what Republicans needed, above all, was to purify their as they do now. resistance to big government.

Medicare should pay for patients, not treatments By PETER ORSZAG Special to the Washington Post The recent deceleration in U.S. health care costs appears to be at least partially structural, and not entirely because of a lackluster economy. That offers some hope that the slowdown will continue. Still, more needs to be done to encourage the trend. Two new bipartisan proposals for the next round of health care reform may point the way. Last month, the Bipartisan Policy Center released a set of ideas for improving value in health care. And this week, the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform at the Brookings Institution put forward its own set of initiatives. The Engelberg proposals – spearheaded by Mark McClellan, who ran the Medicare program under President George W. Bush – have been embraced by health care leaders, including former Health and Human Services Department Secretaries Michael Leavitt and Donna Shalala, as well as former Congressional Budget Office Directors Dan Crippen and Alice Rivlin. (I am also part of the Engelberg group.) The proposals from the Engelberg group have four general aims. First, the initiatives would expand the country’s electronic infrastructure, promoting data exchange and more evidence gathering on the costs and quality of various treatments. Second, they would create incentives for providers, partly by making an important change to

Medicare and reforming medical-malpractice rules. Third, they would redesign health coverage to increase the value for consumers. And finally, they would change the tax treatment of employer-provided insurance. I would like to focus on the reforms to Medicare since I view them as the most important. And the key change proposed within Medicare is the Medicare Comprehensive Care payment reform. Under the Engelberg strategy, health care providers would receive a fixed payment for each Medicare beneficiary, rather than being paid piecemeal for every test and procedure. This comprehensive payment would be adjusted according to the beneficiary’s health status and the quality of care provided, giving doctors the incentive to avoid unnecessary treatment. Under the proposal, no later than 2023, the vast majority of Medicare payments would be made this way. Each year after that, Congress would consider how the payment benchmark should be updated – rather than set payments for specific procedures, as happens today. The Medicare Comprehensive Care concept represents a plausible path forward between two competing views of health reform. It provides a mechanism for capping payments per beneficiary, something many Republicans want. Yet unlike premium-support proposals, which would direct federal money to insurance companies, the payments would go to health care providers.

That should be a crucial difference for Democrats. Indeed, comprehensive-care payments can be seen as building upon mechanisms encouraged by the 2010 health-reform law such as bundling and accountable-care organizations. Importantly, though, they are explicitly intended to become the dominant form of Medicare reimbursement over the next decade, giving some precision and certainty to the shift away from fee-for-service reimbursement. The Engelberg proposals for reforming Medicare payments include much more, but if I had to pick one change, it would be this one. Given the partisan divide in Congress, I don’t hold out too much hope that the comprehensive-payment strategy will become law anytime soon, just because it makes sense and has support from thought leaders from both parties. Given the central role of health costs in our fiscal future, however, we would be smart to get rid of sequestration, which hurts short-term economic growth but does little to reduce America’s long-term budget deficit. Instead, we should enact this type of Medicare payment reform.

We applaud this week’s news that local and federal law enforcement agencies were able to disrupt an alleged crack-dealing ring. The destructive effects crack cocaine has on communities are well-documented. The drug is relatively cheap, potent and highly addictive. It can make people addicts relatively quickly, reducing their list of daily concerns to finding their next “fix.” Sometimes addicts turn to petty crimes such as theft or burglary, or more serious crimes such as armed robbery, to feed their addiction. We don’t want crack, the gang members who often supply it, or the accompanying problems it brings in our communities. The months-long drug investigation, led by DeKalb County Sheriff Roger Scott’s office in collaboration with DeKalb police and the federal Drug Enforcement Agency, resulted in 13 arrests; federal marshals were searching for two of the three Chicago-based ringleaders still wanted Wednesday. All of those arrested are presumed innocent until proven guilty; all face prison time if convicted. Police say they have removed a source of a highly addictive illegal drug from the streets, which is great news for our community. The investigation also is a credit to local law enforcement, who we count on to defend our towns against these types of social ills. It should also serve as a wake-up call to people who think that crack, heroin and other nefarious drugs are not bought, sold and used here in DeKalb County. Our community’s proximity to Chicago and its small-town feel might make it seem like the ideal place for a drug dealer looking to peddle their product. This week, at least, local police showed that is not necessarily the case. As Scott said, the hope is that successful drug investigations such as these will lead to a decline in drug activity and convince drug dealers from larger nearby cities to look elsewhere. In the short term, that might happen. But the money to be made in selling illegal drugs virtually guarantees that enterprising criminals inevitably will be interested in setting up shop here. When they do, here’s hoping it won’t last long.

Obama shares blame on Guantanamo Bay shame President Obama was eloquent Tuesday in describing why the situation at the Guantanamo Bay prison is “unsustainable.” He was justified in blaming Congress for frustrating his effort to close the facility. But he was disingenuous in failing to acknowledge that his own actions – or his own inaction – have substantially contributed to an impasse that has prompted more than half of Guantanamo’s inmates to undertake a hunger strike. One hundred and sixty-six terrorism suspects remain at Guantanamo, of whom 86 have been cleared for transfer to their home nations. After overseeing more than 70 repatriations or other prisoner transfers during the first years of his administration, Mr. Obama suspended those to Yemen after the attempted Christmas Day bombing of an airliner in 2010; in 2011 and 2012 he signed defense bills imposing all-but-unmeetable conditions on any other transfers. At his news conference, Mr. Obama promised to “go back at” the Guantanamo issue and said he would seek help from Congress. For the prison to close, lawmakers would have to lift a ban on transferring prisoners to the United States. But it was good that Mr. Obama also pledged to “examine every option that we have administratively” – because there are steps he could take without Congress. The first would be to transfer some of the 27 non-Yemeni prisoners who have been cleared for transfer; there also are three Uighurs who have been cleared but who cannot be returned to China. One Saudi citizen, Shaker Amr, is a former British resident whose return Britain has requested; there also are Algerians and Moroccans. While there are legitimate concerns that detainees could return to terrorist activity, in many cases the risk is reasonable. Mr. Obama should also insist on implementation of his plan for periodic review boards for inmates not yet cleared for transfer. The administration, meanwhile, should work with Yemen’s new president on creating conditions for the return of the 56 Yemenis cleared for transfer, a step called for last week by Senate intelligence committee chairman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. Even with good will, this would take time and resources; Yemen remains an active base for al-Qaida. But a start should be made at identifying or constructing secure facilities and creating programs to manage Yemeni repatriates. What is needed above all is genuine political commitment from Mr. Obama. Having vowed to close Guantanamo, he backed away from the project in the face of political resistance. That resistance may be, as he argued this week, unreasonable; but it won’t be overcome if the president doesn’t make it a priority. Washington Post

Hawks, Penguins plan game at Soldier Field CHICAGO – The Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins are heading outside again. Just not on New Year’s Day this time. The NHL announced Wednesday that the Hawks and Penguins will play at Soldier Field next year. The regular-season game between two of the league’s marquee franchises will be played March 1, 2014. “It’s an exciting thing,” Hawks captain Jonathan Toews said. “I think that’s an exciting matchup especially that a lot of people will probably look forward to. The last time around a lot of the guys that were in this locker room that had the chance to play at Wrigley Field, it was an amazing day and a lot of things about it made it special. So it will be a different venue but to be at home here again, that will be a pretty cool thing.” The Hawks hosted the Detroit Red Wings at Wrigley Field on Jan. 1, 2009, as part of the Winter Classic series. About 40,818 fans attended the game at the home of the Cubs. The March 1 date for the Hawks and Pittsburgh is part of a series of outdoor regular-season games planned for next season. The league is planning to announce more games soon. “It’s a great experience,” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. “You go back to when we were over at Wrigley and I think everybody had the time of their lives. It’s a special game. Once we get into that season, you really anticipate it. You look forward to it.” This will be the third outdoor regular-season game for the Penguins since 2008. Pittsburgh played Buffalo at Ralph Wilson Stadium for the first NHL Winter Classic five years ago, then hosted the Washington Capitals at Heinz Field for the 2011 Classic. – Wire report

PREP BASEBALL: HINCKLEY-BIG ROCK 5, HIAWATHA 4

Royals beat Hawks, keep championship hopes alive By BRIAN HOXSEY sports@daily-chronicle.com BIG ROCK – There are always going to be those games where a team just has to take runs any way they can get them, Wednesday afternoon at Kenny Field was one of those games for Hinckley-Big Rock. The Royals were able to score the winning run on a passed ball with two outs in the bottom of the seventh

inning to defeat Hiawatha, 5-4, and keep their hopes of a Little Ten Conference championship intact. H-BR senior Luke Winkle singled with one out in the final frame, stole both second and third around an out and then crossed the plate after the final pitch went to the backstop. “There are days like today when you have to manufacture runs, today the playbook was open,” said H-BR

DeKALB – With a 2-2 count, DeKalb junior Sarah Friedlund took a step out of the box and relaxed. Friedlund doesn’t fancy herself as a two-strike hitter. But with Lindsey Costliow on second and the Barbs trailing Morris by one Tuesday afternoon, Friedlund was in a big spot. She didn’t let the count bother her, instead taking the next pitch over the fence at DeKalb High School, giving the Barbs a walkoff win. The home run improved the Barbs’ record to 14-4 and 4-2 in the Northern Illinois Big 12 East. “I was just hoping for a shot up to center field to score Lindsey, who was on second base at the time,” Friedlund said before DeKalb’s Wednesday practice. “Once she pitched it to me, it was just right outside, kind of in the middle. I just swung and it went. I

KANELAND GIRLS SOCCER

Net growth for senior Kaneland improves its back line, assists area’s top goalkeeper By ANTHONY ZILIS sports@daily-chronicle.com Jordan Ginther is the top goalkeeper in area, and one of the best in the state. But for most of Kaneland’s scoreless tie against DeKalb last week, the Knights’ goalkeeper just

stood and watched while the four defenders in front of her made her job easy. The Purdue commit has kept her team in plenty of matches by making spectacular saves, but April 24, her role was ancillary. “They’re pretty darn good,” coach Scott Parillo said of his back line.

“They’ve been pretty solid throughout the year, but they’re starting to get much better.” The Knights have certainly been tested this season against strong offensive teams, and St. Charles East, the No. 2 seed in the competitive Class 3A Hoffman Estates Sectional, was the only team to put up multiple goals against them.

On Feb. 28, six months to the day after she had gotten her driver’s license and during the same week softball practice began, Friedlund was driving down Keslinger Road, heading to DHS for a normal school day. On her way, Friedlund ran into a snow drift. Friedlund remembers most of the road being clear, but by the time she saw the drift, she was already there, and her car went off the road and

flipped over into a ditch. Luckily for Friedlund, she felt fine. She was still able to reach into her purse, which was now on the ceiling of the car, and grab her phone. Her first instinct was to call her mother. Another man had saw her car upside down with its lights on and had called 911. The airbags in Friedlund’s’ car didn’t go off, and she felt she could have gotten out herself, but decided to wait for the paramedics to arrive. “I didn’t know if I should move or not,” she said. “It was pretty scary, but I knew I was OK, so I wasn’t too freaked out.” However, a week later, Friedlund found out she wasn’t 100 percent. She had headaches, but didn’t think anything of it. She’s always had sensitivity to light and sound, so she wasn’t worried when she started having those symptoms.

Cubs threaten to leave Wrigley

AP photo

This artist rendering provided May 1 by the Cubs shows renovations planned at Wrigley Field. Part of the $500 million renovation plan for the 99-year-old stadium is to erect a 6,000-square-foot video screen over left field.

Ricketts decides to play hardball on stadium renovations CHICAGO – Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts had months to decide how the organization would pitch the renovations for Wrigley Field. Yet on the same day the Cubs officially filed the paperwork that triggered zoning and landmark commission meetings, Ricketts issued a threat that the Cubs could leave Wrigley Field if the neighborhood and city refuse to allow the two proposed signs as well as a 6,000-square foot video board in left field. “The fact is that if we don’t have the ability to generate revenue in our own outfield, we’ll have to take a look at moving, no question,” Ricketts told reporters Wednesday morning, The Associated Press reported. Julian Green, Cubs vice president of communications and community affairs, doesn’t believe Ricketts’ comments should be considered a threat, rather an acknowledgment that the organization needs to create revenue to support the $500 million renovation. They hope some-

INSIDE THE CUBS Meghan Montemmuro thing can be worked out with the Wrigleyville rooftop owners – who still have 11 years left on their deal with the Cubs – without the posturing of potential lawsuits. “In that context, yes we’d consider moving,” Green said. “… I don’t think it’s take it or leave it, but the one thing we need to make this thing work for us is the signage inside the ballpark, not outside on the rooftops.” There isn’t one big hurdle the Cubs must overcome before all the plans fall in place, thus it’s almost impossible to determine how quickly these plans will be approved and construction can begin. Too many moving parts have made it difficult for the Cubs to make – and fulfill – any promises to players. President of baseball operations Theo Epstein said the Cubs told players last year they planned to have the home clubhouse renovated

and expanded, which would double in size, by Opening Day in 2014. Those plans are already in jeopardy. Before construction can begin, they must receive public approval. Any further delays will prevent construction starting at the end of the season. The longer it takes for Wrigley to finally undergo a facelift, the less money the team will have to spend. “We’re all committed to finding a way to make it work so we can win and act like a big market here,” Epstein said. “I’m pretty sure that’ll happen. But as [Ricketts] indicated today, you have to keep alternatives alive just because this has been such a crazy process.” Ricketts waited too long to publicly suggest the Cubs’ moving elsewhere is a viable option. Now it comes across as a desperate move to speed up the public process. If Ricketts jumped on the Rosemont offer immediately, or at least suggested the Cubs would give it a legitimate consideration, he would hold more leverage.

However, the rooftop owners remain the wild card. The threat of litigation or the decision to sue the Cubs for breach of contract could ruin plans to begin work this offseason. And as soon as these plans begin affecting the on-field product, with money earmarked for baseball operations in limbo until the renovations are underway as it is limited until revenue increases, the Cubs have an even bigger problem on their hands. “We believe we put a proposal in place that helps [the rooftop owners] continue to be viable partners in this business,” Green said. “We hope as we move forward we’ll sit down and talk to them and look at both of the signs to find a solution that works for everyone.”

NBA PLAYOFFS: BULLS VS. NETS, 7 P.M., CSN, TNT

Surrounded by noise, Bulls try to keep focus VIEWS Tom Musick DEERFIELD – Imagine a child covering his or her ears and shouting to avoid hearing your words. “LA LA LA LA LA!” Now imagine that child being 55-year-old Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. “LA LA LA LA LA!” Now imagine that child being 32-year-old Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich. “LA LA LA LA LA!” That’s pretty much what it sounded like after the Bulls practiced Wednesday at the Berto Center. The bruised-and-bandaged Bulls can advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals with a win today against the Brooklyn Nets. The Bulls lead the first-round playoff series, 3-2, and want desperately to avoid a winner-take-all Game 7 on Saturday in the heart of Brooklyn. If the Nets do manage to force a Game 7, it’s safe to say the Barclays Center will be jet-engine loud this weekend. The Bulls have heard enough noise this week as it is. Some of the noise arrived in the form of bulletin-board quotes that often emerge before big games. Nets forward Gerald Wallace and center Andray Blatche both publicly declared that the Bulls were the inferior team in the series regardless of the results after five playoff contests. “There’s no doubt in our mind we are the better team,” Blatche told the New York Daily News on Wednesday. “We’re just in a hole.” Thibodeau “LA LA LA”-d a question about whether Blatche’s comments would motivate the Bulls. “If we have to rely on that, …” Thibodeau said, trailing off. “To me, it’s meaningless.” Not so meaningless was what TNT analyst Steve Kerr had to say. Kerr played 15 seasons in the NBA, including five seasons with the Bulls, and he served

Bulls guard Derrick Rose (second from right) watches the second half of Game 2 of a first-round playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets April 22 in New York. as the Phoenix Suns general manager before returning to a broadcast role. He is cautious and thoughtful with his analysis, which is why it spoke volumes Monday when he called on Derrick Rose to return. Rose has practiced for months while insisting that he is not yet ready to return to game action after his torn ACL in last season’s playoff opener. Rose has looked great in practice and during pregame shooting drills, but he has watched from the sidelines during the playoffs while teammates such as Joakim Noah, Hinrich, Taj Gibson and others have tried to play despite various injuries. “If Derrick is OK and there’s no threat to further injury, I think he’s got to play,” Kerr said during Game 5. “He has to put himself out there for 15 to 20 minutes. “Look at what Noah and Hinrich are putting themselves through with their injuries. I think it’s time for Derrick. … Maybe he owes it to his teammates, I guess that’s what I’m saying.” Rose’s teammates certainly could use the help. Hinrich did not practice

Wednesday because of a calf injury and limped badly on his way toward reporters, so it’s tough to imagine him playing in Game 6. Gibson and Luol Deng also missed practice because of illness, although Thibodeau seemed less concerned about their availability. Meanwhile, Noah continues to play despite a painful case of plantar fasciitis in his right foot. As Hinrich heard a condensed version of Kerr’s comments, he prepared to “LA LA LA.” “We don’t feel that way,” Hinrich said. “It’s been a very difficult year for Derrick. I’ve never experienced any sort of injury like that, and I’m not one to speak on how anybody else’s body feels. “We know what kind of guy he is and we know what kind of teammate he is.” At least for now, Rose is more of a cheerleader than a teammate. It’s remarkable how well the Bulls have done without him. Although scoring has been sparse, Thibodeau’s defense-first approach has kept the Bulls competitive throughout the season.

Thibodeau cracked a rare joke when asked about Rose’s playing status for Game 6. “There’s always a chance,” Thibodeau said before a momentary pause. “Small as it might be.” Yet Thibodeau turned serious as he defended his MVP point guard for the umpteenth time. “There’s a big difference between the type of injury that he’s had and all these other injuries,” Thibodeau said. “We certainly appreciate what all the other guys are doing, but Derrick has had a very serious injury that requires time. He’s 24 years old. We’re not going to rush him back. “[Until] he’s completely comfortable, I don’t want him out there. If that means we wait another game, if that means we wait until next year, so be it.” For a moment, everything was quiet. As Thibodeau walked away, the noise resumed.

Insider A closer look at the baseball scene

SPOTLIGHT ON ... COREY NELSON DeKalb, junior, pitcher Corey Nelson pitched in relief in a game one loss to Kaneland and started game two. He pitched 8 1/3 innings and threw 93 pitches over the course of two games. Nelson didn’t pick up the win in game two, but held the Knights to one run and kept the Barbs in position for their eventual three-run seventh-inning rally and a 4-1 win.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR Hiawatha vs. Somonauk, 4:30 p.m., Monday and Tuesday The Hawks road to an unprecedented Little Ten title got more challenging with a tie and recent loss. But the Hawks still have a shot with a two-game set against perennial-conference power Somonauk.

Spartans hope bats will come around “We used everyone that could pitch last week,” Piekarz said. “Everyone did a nice job. They attacked the strike zone and threw strikes.” On Friday the T’wolves were tied 3-3 with Aurora Christian in the fifth inning before they exhausted all available pitching arms and lost 11-3. “We had timely hitting all week,” Piekarz said. “We showed flashes of what a good team can do. Our pitchers arms came out of the week in good shape and we are going out this week to compete in all four games. We want to get into a position where we are playing our best so we can peak when regionals roll around.”

By JAMES NOKES sports@daily-chronicle.com In six games last week the Sycamore pitching staff gave up five earned runs. The Spartans rode a hot pitching staff to nine consecutive wins, then ran into Northern Illinois Big 12 East cellar dwellers Rochelle. After run-ruling the Hubs for two straight games, Sycamore lost on Friday and brought Kaneland, Yorkville and Morris back into the conference title race. “Every out for us was either a strikeout or pop out,” Spartans’ coach Jake Cavanaugh said. “It’s frustrating. To not ground out once in a game you’d think would take a conscience effort. You’ve got to really try to not roll over the top of a ball and hit it to shortstop. We don’t take batting practice to the game. “Watch our batting practice and we can rifle the ball anywhere. But in the game we just take awful swings that result in weak pop ups. If everything comes together we are going to be a very good team because our pitching has been lights out and our defense is solid.” Sycamore’s defense has 33 errors in 20 games and, with a few positional shifts, has kept a potent pitching staff from having to earn extra outs. Yet, it’s production from the key No. 3 and No. 5 spots in the batting order that has been missing. Extra-base hits and RBIs are a must from each spot. If No. 8 and No. 9 hitters can also turn around the order and set the bases for the top hitter, Cavanaugh believes the Spartans can finish off their run at the Northern Illinois Big 12 East Conference title. “We are as talented as anyone in conference,” Cavanaugh said.

Making a turn

Erik Anderson for Shaw Media

Sycamore’s Alec Kozac picks up a grounder and throws to first base on April 15 against Morris at the Sycamore Park District baseball fields. “It’s a matter of us putting everything together. Will our bats come around? That’s the question. We can’t hit it in the air and get the same result for much longer.”

T’wolves depth tested Indian Creek sent every pitcher on the roster to the mound last

week. And coach Joe Piekarz managed to pitch a few players that hadn’t been on the mound since little league. The T’wolves went 1-41 last week - managing a tie with then first place Hiawatha - but the approach Indian Creek used impressed Piekarz.

The blitz is on for area teams, with weather permitting After playing a schedule more fit for football teams, the weather has broke and the race is on to get in as many games as possible before regionals in three weeks. Indian Creek had six games in four days. Sycamore had six games in as many days. There wasn’t a single complaint about too many games from any coach.

VIEWS James Nokes Baseball needs to be played outdoors in the elements. Batted balls need to take funny hops off the dirt and grass. The wind

needs to howl and move the perceived path of a fly ball and force fielders to adjust. These situations can’t be simulated indoors. Pitchers need to feel the stress of a given game situation. Hitters need to see what a pitcher has when they have to bear down. The race to regionals is on.

PREP ROUNDUP

Eggleson throws complete game; Sycamore baseball beats Morris DAILY CHRONICLE Colin Eggleson threw a complete game for the Sycamore baseball team in a 6-1 win over Morris. Eggleson allowed a run on three hits in the first, but didn’t give up another hit until the seventh. He retired 17 hitters in a row at one point, and didn’t walk a batter. Alec Kozak had two hits, including a two-run double, for the Spartans. “Another well-pitched game by us where we only give up one run,” Sycamore coach Jason Cavanaugh said. “Played great defense. You always have a chance when you pitch and play great defense and we did that today.” Sycamore is now 18-5 and 9-2 in the Northern Illinois Big 12 East.

SOFTBALL Cogs get close victory: Genoa-Kingston pitcher Danielle Engel gave up just three hits, earning the win in the Cogs’ 2-1 victory at Hampshire. “She had one of her best outings as a Cog,” G-K coach Mike Lauer said. G-K’s Paige Keegan hit a home run in the sixth to tie the game, while Kailyn Cygan scored the winning run on a wild pitch in the top of the seventh. Cygan finished with two hits. G-K is now 12-4 and 3-3 in conference play.

The moment was clear. DeKalb coach Jake Howells felt the Barbs had a breakthrough, even in a 9-4 loss to Morris on Thursday. The Redskins would sweep the series, but down 8-0 in the fourth on Thursday, DeKalb made an adjustment that served as a catalyst to keep them in games. “That was a game that could have got ugly,” Howells said. “We started to play together. It was the hardest we’d worked all year.” The resolve showed on Saturday when the Barbs, despite laboring through an 0-5 week, picked up a 4-1, 8-inning win against Kaneland. “A 1-5 record seems hard to swallow but it could have been worse,” Howells said. “Every game was a conference game. There wasn’t a makeup game where we could punt and get some guys a rest. It was a long week against good opponents. Corey Nelson really knuckled up and put us in a position to win on Saturday.”

GIRLS SOCCER Cogs can’t stop Rockford Christian: Viviana Beltran scored the lone goal for Genoa-Kingston in a 4-1 loss at Rockford Christian. Nicole Hebel had the assist for the Cogs, who are 7-11 and 5-6 in conference. “Got off to a bad start and never recovered,” G-K coach Randy Tate aid. “I’m proud of the way the girls never quit despite a lot of tired and injured players. After eight games in 10 days, we need a few days to recover.” Knights shut out Royals: Kaneland beat Hinckley-Big Rock, 7-0.

TUESDAY’S LATE RESULTS BASEBALL Cogs fall: Marengo beat Genoa-Kingston, 11-1. Ben Rabe had a solo home run for the Cogs. Bobby Treadwell threw a complete game, giving up just four earned runs. G-K is now 4-14 and 2-4 in conference play.

SOFTBALL Hawks top LaMoille: Madison Marshall earned the win in the circle for Hiawatha in a 11-1 victory over LaMoille. Ashley Tamraz went 2 for 3 with a double and three RBIs while Kim Flores had two RBIs.

GIRLS SOCCER G-K dominates North Boone:

Genoa-Kingston scored four goals in the first half on its way to a 9-0 win over North Boone on the road. Shannon Schumacher scored G-K’s first three goals while Viviana Beltran also had a hat trick. Nicole Hebel scored two goals and had two assists while Katie Gahlbeck scored on a penalty kick in the second half.

While some teams might run out of pitching and be forced to throw someone with less experience, it beats being stuck indoors.

Friedlund feels Ryan’s pitching seals win for Hinckley-Big Rock back to normal Continued • BASEBALL from page B1 • FRIEDLUND Continued from page B1 Before softball season, Friedlund had to take the concussion ImPACT test, which is mandatory for all freshmen and junior athletes. It takes roughly a half an hour and tests athletes’ memory and reaction time. A couple of days after Friedlund took the test, DHS trainer Nate Viland called her in to tell her she did indeed have a concussion. “I didn’t really put anything together until I walked into the school and I’m like ‘I probably have a concussion,’ “ Friedlund said. “And then he was like ‘you didn’t pass your test.’ “ Friedlund had also suffered a concussion during her sophomore basketball season when she took a charge and fell back and hit her head, and said the symptoms for that one were worse, which is one reason she didn’t think as much of the concussion symptoms she recently suffered. Friedlund ended up going to a neurologist, who told her she would be out for three weeks. When she was cleared for activity, Friedlund started off with 10-minute jogs, followed by a series of sprints and some backpedalling, and also started playing catch and swinging a bat. She finally saw game action during the Barbs’ 12-0 win over Rochelle on April 9. Since she’s been back, 2012 Daily Chronicle all-area selection and NI Big 12 East all-conference pick has hit in the middle of the lineup, and has been playing shortstop with Jessica Townsend having moved to center field. “Sarah’s one of those kids, when you put her in right field she’s your best right fielder. You put her at shortstop she’s your best shortstop,” DeKalb coach Jeff Davis said. “Catcher, she’s your best catcher. So right now, we need a shortstop, she’s willing to do that. “I think that’s just a sign of a great teammate. She’s putting all that all-conference stuff aside and she wants to win ballgames.” Friedlund felt like she was fully back to normal a week ago. Davis said Tuesday’s effort was Friedlund’s best game of the season. “She’s back 100 percent,” Davis said. “But yesterday was the best she’s looked at the plate since she’s been back.”

The home team answered thanks to a two-out error in the bottom half to tie the game and took a 2-1 lead via another Hawk error in the second. Burger added a sacrifice fly in the third to knot things up again. “Our kids battled and I thought played well,” said Hiawatha coach Sean Donnelly, whose club out-hit H-BR 9-6. “[On Friday] we played them and for the first five innings we played very timid, but today we came out loose and that helped, especially playing one of the top teams in the conference. It just came down to a couple plays here or there, but that’s what happens in onerun games.” H-BR (14-5, 12-1 LTC) plated a pair of runs in the fifth to go up 4-2, one on a delayed double steal and the other on a run-scoring single from Adam Joyner off of Hawk

off of Royal starter Dutch Schneeman to score two runs on RBI hits from Taylor Edwards and Ed Canchola to make it 4-4. “We didn’t really know

what he was going to be able to give us,” said Unger of his sophomore pitcher, who was coming off an injury in his last start. “He made some outstanding plays with his glove as well as his arm to keep us in the ballgame. He had some control issues in the sixth there, but he was getting tired. He has been our ace all year and he proved it here again with his performance today.” The Hawks were able to put runners on first and second with just one out in the seventh, but Royal reliever and winning pitcher Jacob Ryan was able to strike out the next two batters, setting up things for the final half inning. “Today was an ugly win, but a good win,” said Royal catcher Mitch Ruh, who reached base three of four times, twice with singles. “We made the plays when we had to and picked each other up, that’s what it takes sometimes to win ballgames.”

Schlehofer a revelation for Knights as skilled sweeper • SOCCER Continued from page B1 Ginther has been called upon to make plenty of big saves, but Parillo thinks his defense has improved because of those high-pedigree opponents. “Playing some of those tough teams, you have to get up for those [matches] because they could get ugly real quick,” he said. Freshman Sage Schlehofer has been a revelation for the Knights this season as an athletic, skilled sweeper. She’s surrounded by veterans, including outside backs Brooke Harner and Anne Marie Giese, who are both captains, and junior stopper Delaney Stryczek. That veteran presence has been important for the young player’s development, but it also made her timid early in the year in a position that requires asser-

Schlehofer has learned plenty during her freshman season, and against DeKalb, she was heavily involved in keeping the ball out of Ginther’s penalty area. “I learned from [veteran team-

mates] to have self control, hold the ball and wait until there are opportunities to pass, and to just relax,” Schlehofer said. “I learned to pass more and to really talk and to know who’s open so I can have more options to pass the ball.” The Knights don’t have a deep bench, so those four play almost every minute of every match. If Kaneland makes a deep run in the Class 2A playoffs, Ginther will eventually have to make some spectacular plays. But even the best goalkeepers can’t get to every shot, so the ability to stay in matches will also be determined by this strong defensive corps. “For the most part, we expect our players to play most of the game, and for the most part they’ve been able to do that,” Parillo said. “We’ve been pretty fortunate. … They work really hard and they work really well together.”

P

op stars Ryan Cabrera and Teddy Geiger will take the stage at the Egyptian Theatre in DeKalb Friday in a concert also featuring Tyler Hilton and headlined by Aaron Carter. The three will each perform for one night only as part of Carter’s “After Party” tour. Cabrera rose to stardom when his hit single, “On the Way Down,” debuted in 2004 and went gold. He is currently touring the U.S. and Canada and working on a new album. Geiger gained fame with his song “For You I Will (Confidence),” which went platinum in 2006. He also has dabbled in acting, appearing in TV shows such as “Love Monkey” and the feature film, “The Rocker.” The Daily Chronicle talked with Cabrera and Geiger about music, acting and what the future holds for them as artists.

Ryan Cabrera DC: When did you know you wanted to pursue a career in music? It was kind of random. It wasn’t like I was a kid wanting to be a musician. I was in a band at the age of 13 and I didn’t know how to play an instrument. Neither did anyone in the band. We just thought we were cool. We wanted to be like Dave Matthews Band. What made you want to start playing guitar? Sixteen was when I first picked it up. I didn’t start playing until I was 18. I went

kind of backwards ... I kind of learned just watching [Dave Matthews]. He played so strangely. Who are some of your biggest musical influences besides Dave Matthews? I am a huge fan of the Beatles and Paul Simon. Paul Simon is one of my heroes. Frank Sinatra to Frank Buckley, Hall and Oates, and Freddie Mercury. “On the Way Down,” was one of your first hit singles. How old were you when that song was released? I think I was 22 or 23. I made that album when I was 20 but it took two years to actually come out ... It was a long road but we wanted to work on it organically. What was your reaction the first time you heard your song on the radio? I remember the first time I ever heard it ... I was in my car next to Capital Records. I rolled all my windows down and just blasted it. I was screaming at the people [on the streets] ‘That’s my song!’ So what brings you to DeKalb? I’ve actually played there a couple times. There’s a fun energy playing outside the city. Being in that area I think people are excited to see you come to town. There’s a

cool energy there. What are your future plans as an artist? I’ve got to finish the record. It’s hard because I’m constantly going out and playing shows on the road. I have three or four more songs to record ... Once I get back in town, I’ll get to work on that. Anything else you want to say? I love My Little Ponies. Make sure they know that.

Teddy Geiger DC: When did you first develop a love for music? TG: As long as I can remember. I remember playing at 15 with my grandparents growing up. That’s when I first started. I started playing piano when I was 6. And [eventually I played] a guitar I found in my grandfather’s basement. You play a wide variety of instruments. Do you have a favorite? Maybe piano. And guitar too. Those are probably the two big ones. You wrote “For You I Will,” when you were a teenager. What inspired the lyrics for that song? Just liking a girl growing up. She went to school with me. She actually lived on my street. It’s kind of like getting the nerve up to talk to her. My friend talked to her the day before, and knew that she was going to reject me. But he let me ask her out anyway knowing I was going to get rejected. So you turned that experience into a song? Yeah, exactly. You’ve had a few acting gigs over

the years appearing in some TV shows and a movie, “The Rocker.” How did those roles come about? The first one came about, it was a show with Sony. I was signed with Sony at the time and it just kind of came through the label ... I went in and did the audition and ended up getting the part. It happened kind of fast. I had never done acting before. It was kind of crazy ... I kind of haven’t done anything recently because I’ve been working on this album. Is acting something you might want to continue to pursue? Yeah, definitely. So you’re working on another album, how’s that going? We just finished it a little while ago. We’re sending out the record to all the people this week. We’ve already got the digital downloads. Everything goes up on iTunes and the online distributors on May 14. Where do you go from here? Hit the road a little bit more. There’s a bunch of stuff in September we have planned and this summer ... I’ve been working on some dance music and kind of getting more into that business. Have you performed with Ryan Cabrera and Tyler Hilton before? Me and Tyler toured together way back with Hilary Duff when my first album came out...[The DeKalb show] will be fun, they’re both awesome dudes. So do you all perform together on stage besides your individual performances? We try to get all up together and do something as well. But no promises, we’ll see how it goes.

Festival Chorus to perform Sunday The DeKalb Festival Chorus, conducted by Seth Houston, will present its spring concert, featuring Franz Joseph Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass, at 3 p.m. Sunday in the Boutell Memorial Concert Hall at Northern Illinois University. Widely hailed as one of Haydn’s greatest masterpieces, the Lord Nelson Mass stands at the cusp of the classical and Romantic musical traditions, portraying Europe at the threshold of war with music that is intense, dramatic and lyrical.

The Mass will feature soloists Mary Lutz-Govertsen, Melissa Arning, Bernard Holcolm and David Govertsen, as well as the DeKalb Festival Orchestra. In addition to the Lord Nelson Mass, the soloists will sing a selection of solo and small ensemble numbers from operas and sacred works by Mozart and Bach. The DeKalb Festival Chorus is a community choral group that has served the DeKalb area for almost 40 years. It performs

classical and contemporary choral works at concerts in the fall and spring each year. Houston will give a pre-concert lecture at 2:30 p.m. in the Concert Hall. Tickets cost $10 and can be purchased at the door. Admission for students will be free, thanks to a grant from the Wurlitzer Foundation. For information about the chorus, visit www.dekalbfestivalchorus.org.

CCT summer theater camps gear up CCT of DeKalb County will offer students with an interest in theater a trip to the West, where cacti grow and tumbleweeds drift, at its Beginner’s Imagination Camp, scheduled for June 11 to 21. In its eighth year, Beginner’s Imagination Camp is open to students who will be in kindergarten through sixth grade in the fall of 2013. Camp is from 9 a.m. to noon each day at St. John’s Lutheran Church on Brickville Road in Sycamore, and ends with a performance for family and friends at a local theater. “With the O’Connell Theatre officially under renovation, we were faced with finding a new location for camp,” Julie Breidenbach, coordinator of the summer camp, said in a news release. “We are confident that St. John’s offers us the space needed to provide an amazing opportunity for students

interested in theater.” Cost of the two-week camp is $95. Children will learn all aspects of beginner’s theater, including music, dance, art, stage combat, auditioning, performing and more. CCT’s Advanced Imagination Camp, designed for students entering seventh through 12th grades in fall 2013 and 2013 spring graduates, returns for its seventh edition. Advanced Camp also runs for two weeks, June 17 to 30, and will culminate with four performances of the popular 1950s genre musical “Grease.” Students will audition for, create, rehearse and stage a fulllength musical in just two weeks. They will learn the skills needed to ace an audition, the tips and secrets to onstage performance and the songs, dialogue and choreogra-

phy of the musical. “Advanced Camp is much more intense,” Breidenbach said in the release. “We literally put on a fullscale musical in just two weeks, and students are treated to every aspect of onstage performance.” Every student will receive an onstage role in the production. While other aspects of musical theater instruction will be included, much of the emphasis of the Advanced Camp is placed in performance. Cost of the camp is $125 and includes a “Grease” cast T-shirt and a dinner during dress rehearsal. To register or to see a full summer camp schedule, visit www. CCTOnstage.com or find CCT of DeKalb on Facebook. Enrollment for both camps is limited and tends to fill up quickly. Financial assistance is available to those who qualify.

The production will open today and run through May 12 at Stage Coach Theater, 126 S. Fifth St. in DeKalb. Directed by Anita Biletzy, “The Robin Hood Caper” involves four friends, members of their own private Charities Anonymous Club, who meet twice a year to report on their charitable activities. But unlike other charitable groups, these friends are all old crooks who have taken to plying their trades to do good – robbing from the rich and giving to the poor. During a club meeting at the home of Flora Langley’s nephew Richard, it comes up that Richard is about to lose his newspaper because of an article he wrote exposing the town’s evil mayor.

The big band sound from the 1940s returns to the Egyptian Theatre as the Glenn Miller Orchestra takes to the stage at 2 p.m. Saturday. The first Glenn Miller Orchestra was formed in 1937 and failed financially. Glenn Miller launched his second band in March 1938 and it became a sensation, with multiple hits and huge box office sales. In 1941, the Glenn Miller Orchestra had more hit records in one year, including “A String of Pearls,” than anybody in the history of the recording industry at that time. In addition, Glenn Miller’s “Chattanooga Choo Choo” received the first Gold Record ever to be awarded, with more than 1 million copies sold. In 1942, during World War II, Miller volunteered for the Army and disbanded his musical organization. On Dec. 15, 1944, now Major Miller took off in a single engine plane from England – against his better judgment – to precede his band to France and was never seen again. The army officially declared him dead one year later. Based on popular demand, the Miller Es-

tate authorized the formation of the present Glenn Miller Orchestra in 1956. Nick Hilscher is the current music director and male vocalist for the orchestra; Eileen Burns is the featured female vocalist. The Glenn Miller Orchestra is a fully self-contained group consisting of the music director, two vocalists, five saxophone players, four trumpeters, four trombonists and three rhythm musicians. As the vocalists, Hilscher and Burns perform individually and as part of The Moonlight Serenaders vocal group. Today the Glenn Miller Orchestra travels more than 100,000 miles each year, playing nearly 300 dates and entertaining more than 500,000 people annually. Premium reserved seat tickets cost $32 for adults and $27 for seniors and students. Regular reserved seat tickets cost $25 for adults and $20 for seniors and students. Tickets are available by phone at 815-758-1225 or online at www.egyptiantheatre.org. The theater is located at 135 N. Second St., DeKalb.


ADVICE & PUZZLES

Daily Chronicle / Daily-Chronicle.com

Student’s hearing aids can’t tune out laughs Dear Abby: Last year, I began to lose my hearing due to a genetic disorder and now I have to wear hearing aids. I will be a freshman in high school next year. My teachers all have to wear microphones so I can hear them. I’m scared other kids will make fun of me for being different. I have already gotten laughed at. What should I do? – Embarrassed Teen Dear Embarrassed Teen: When people laugh at a person who has a disability, it is usually out of ignorance. Because this happened at school or another place where there is adult supervision, you and your parents should talk to the principal or person in authority so that person can speak privately with the guilty parties and explain why your hearing aids and the micro-

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips phone are necessary. Your parents should also have a meeting with the principal of your high school before you go so the problem can be avoided. When I was in grammar school, a classmate of mine had severe hearing loss. Because the students understood what her problem was, she was never ridiculed. P.S. Making fun of a child who has a disability is a form of bullying, and should be treated as such. Dear Abby: I’m 25 and have been with my husband for nine years, married for four. I cheated on him twice. He caught me both times.

Even though I strayed, he decided to stay. But now he treats me like I’m a child and a prisoner. He took away my phone, my Internet and I can’t go anywhere. He says this is my punishment for what I did. Do I really deserve that? I know we’re both wrong, but is he more wrong? – Broken Wife Dear Broken Wife: From where I sit, you are equally wrong. How long ago did the cheating incidents occur? If they are recent, you two should be in marriage counseling. If they were long ago, then you must decide if you want to live the rest of your life being treated as a child and a prisoner. Your husband doesn’t trust you because you haven’t been trustworthy. But taking away your phone and Internet and keeping you under

lock and key will not help you to rebuild it. You two need more help than anyone can give you in a letter, and I hope you will seek it. If he won’t go for counseling, you should go without him because I don’t think the status quo can last. Dear Abby: My sister and brother-in-law passed away two years ago. I am the only living relative of their 28-yearold son, “Louis.” He is a loner, spoiled and a poor houseguest. I invite Louis over only because I don’t want him to be alone at holiday times. My husband, teenage daughter and I have nothing in common with him, and frankly, he spoils our holidays. How can I stop inviting my nephew without feeling guilty? Or is there another solution? I hate to make waves. – Holiday Hater in

Canada

Dear Holiday Hater: If you invite your nephew for FEWER holidays you will be able to ease your conscience, enjoy more holidays and allow the young man a chance to become more proactive in planning entertainment for himself. Dear Abby: I may be wrong, but isn’t it presumptuous for someone to open the message card on a flower delivery before you get home when the flowers are for you? – Kimberly in Maryland Dear Kimberly: You’re not wrong. The person opening the cards isn’t being helpful, but nosy. And it wouldn’t be out-of-line to tell the person not to do it again. • Write Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Corneal transplants have high success rate Dear Dr. K: I’m scheduled to have a corneal transplant. What can I expect during this procedure? Dear Reader: The cornea is the clear, round “window” that allows light to enter the front of the eye. If the cornea becomes severely diseased or damaged, it can cause a significant loss of vision. A corneal transplant often is the best solution. In this procedure, an eye surgeon replaces part of the cornea with a section of healthy cornea taken from a deceased donor. Donor corneas come from a local eye bank. Before surgery, your doctor may prescribe antibiotic eye drops. You may

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff need to adjust or discontinue certain medications that could increase your risk of surgical complications. In the meantime, the eye bank will confirm that the donor cornea is free of infection, transparent and structurally sound. The eye surgeon will measure your eye to determine the size of the cornea that is needed. Before the surgery is started, the surgeon will cut the donor cornea to the right size. Corneal transplants are

usually done as an outpatient procedure. You will get a sedative and local anesthesia. You’ll be awake but drowsy; you’ll feel tugging on your eye but will feel no pain. The surgical team will use special techniques to keep your eyes open so you don’t have to worry about blinking. The surgeon will cut out a circular “button” of tissue containing the diseased or damaged part of your cornea. Then the donor cornea will be stitched into place using fine nylon sutures (surgical threads). (I’ve put an illustration of the procedure on my website.) Afterward, your eye will be covered with a soft eye

patch and hard eye shield. Steroid eye drops will help prevent your body from rejecting the transplanted tissue. Rejection is the most common complication: The body’s immune system identifies the donor cornea as foreign and begins to attack it. In most cases, rejection can be treated successfully with medication. You’ll continue to wear the eye patch for a few days. Sutures are usually left in place for several months, or they may be allowed to remain in the eye permanently. After the transplant, your vision should improve gradually over a period of months. Corneal transplant

surgery was first performed more than 100 years ago. Over the years, the results have become much better. Superior surgical equipment now is available, and the risks of infection are much lower because of antibiotics. The risk that the transplanted cornea will be rejected has been greatly reduced by medicines that suppress the immune system in the eye. Even 60 years ago, people with damaged corneas could not always be saved from blindness. Today, the odds are very good that their vision can be restored.

Teen: How can I improve my self-esteem? Dr. Wallace: I’m 13 and have been told that I don’t have a positive self-esteem. Does this mean that self-esteem is negative? Please explain. Maybe I don’t have any close friends because my self-esteem is low. What can I do to improve my self-esteem? I really want to change it. – Rosa, El Paso, Tex. Rosa: Self-esteem is how you feel about yourself. When someone has a positive self-esteem, this person has self-confidence. This means the person sets goals and is confident that these goals can be successfully accomplished. When a person has low

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace self-esteem, he or she may feel not worthy of being accepted or even loved. For example, this person may feel or say “I’m really dumb,” or “Nobody cares for me or likes me.” All humans have some degree of weaknesses and some degree of strengths. Spend some time thinking about your strengths. Are you honest, loyal, helpful, kind, considerate, etc.? Think about these positive attributes that apply to you

8ASTROGRAPH By BERNICE BEDE OSOL Newspaper Enterprise Association

TODAY – Although financial conditions look to be quite encouraging for you in the year ahead, you’ll still have to be far more determined than your competitor to generate the kind of returns you want. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – There are strong indications that personal gain is possible for you, provided you don’t take any foolish last-minute risks. If you have a feasible plan, stick with it. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Associates who lack your drive and sense of adventure may be indifferent to your goals. If this is the case, strike out on your own. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – If there is something or someone retarding your progress, take whatever measure necessary to change the situation, no matter how difficult. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – For good or ill, you tend to reflect the behavior patterns of your companions. Only if your personality is stronger than theirs will you be the one calling the shots. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Onlookers will admire your confidence and capabilities in handling tough projects. You won’t have to toot your own horn; they’ll sing your praises for you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Although you’ll have good management skills in situations that require a deft touch, you may be hesitant to use them. Don’t be. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – This is one of those days when you won’t be able to please everyone. One person in particular will require lots of praise, yet you won’t be able to give him or her enough. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – If you want to make a good impression on others, sincerity is a must. For example, if you employ false flattery, you could be perceived as a phony. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – If you take measures to trim all nonessentials from your budget, it could improve your financial picture. Whether it will be enough is another story. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – You have what it takes to do well in most competitive situations, but if you’re an ungracious winner, you will fall flat. Let others sing your praises. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – When making a proposal, you should limit your presentation only to the hard facts. Trying to appeal to the audience’s emotions won’t work. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – A commercial involvement with a friend could be on shaky ground. Be careful not to mismanage affairs; you don’t want to lose a friend.

and remember them every day. Keep telling yourself every day that, “I’m intelligent,” and “I can do this.” Practice in front of a mirror to give yourself an opportunity to see yourself while thinking positive thoughts, and remember to smile! Keep a daily journal, listing events from the day where you exhibited your strengths. If you make a mistake, don’t let it hinder your attempt to improve your self-esteem.

Please contact me again and let me know how you are doing. Dr. Wallace: I’m 15 and really like a certain boy, and I know that he likes me, too. He has told this to my best friend, and he even told my brother. The problem is that he is very shy, and I’m sure he won’t ask me out. I want to ask him out, but my best friend keeps telling me that “nice” girls don’t ask boys to go out with them. I really

don’t believe that and that’s not my problem. If I would ask Carlos out and he would happen to refuse my offer, I’d be so embarrassed. I’d just die. What should I do? – Dawn, Phoenix, Ariz. Dawn: Ask him out. If he refuses (I’ll bet that he won’t) you surely won’t die. You’ll just be disappointed, and that will fade away in a week or two. The alternative is that he won’t ask you out because he is too shy. By asking him, you have a good chance of getting your wish.

8CROSSWORD

Inviting game on round two Jules Renard, a French author, said, “The only man who is really free is the one who can turn down an invitation to dinner without giving any excuse.” This week we are studying responder’s rebids. Look at the auction and South’s hand. Can North have four hearts for his sequence? What should South rebid? North cannot have four hearts; if he did, he would have rebid two hearts (the major), not two diamonds (the minor). So, as there cannot be a 4-4 heart fit, South should rebid two no-trump. This is game-invitational, indicating some 10-12 points and at least one stopper in the unbid suit, hearts. (If you use two-overone game-forcing, you would respond one no-trump forcing, then rebid two no-trump over two diamonds.) After North raises to three no-trump, West leads the spade king. How should South plan the play? What a dirty trick by West, leading a spade instead of a heart! South has six top tricks: one spade, four hearts and one diamond. If the diamond finesse is working, there will be no problems. But if it loses, declarer will need a club trick. South should duck the first trick and take the second spade, to find out the break. Then he should overtake one of dummy’s heart honors as cheaply as possible and run the diamond jack. East wins with his king and shifts to a low club. What should declarer do? If West has the club ace, the contract has no chance. So South should put up his king, hoping for the best. If it wins, he can claim.
