Firefighters watch Wednesday as a home burns at 3217 Carrington Drive in Crystal Lake. The fire began about 3:30 p.m. and quickly spread to three other homes. A ruptured natural gas line in the area complicated the firefighting effort.

Two firefighters hurt as blaze spreads across street By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – All that remains of 3217 Carrington Drive is its fireplace and chimney. Officials are investigating what caused a fire Wednesday afternoon at the home in unincorporated Crystal Lake. The blaze spread to three homes across the street. Two firefighters were taken to Centegra Hospital – McHenry with heat-related injuries, said Battalion Chief Chris Olsen of the Crystal Lake Fire Rescue Department. No residents were injured. Courtney Lefevre, a senior at Prairie Ridge High School, was home when the fire started, but she was not hurt. The residents of the houses across the street also were not hurt.

State legislators have one month left in which to tackle legislation before the end of the spring session. The House and the Senate plan to meet 24 days in May until the session adjourns May 31.

Tough job, worst job not the same thing Like people in many professions, journalists enjoy a chance to talk shop. Not everybody does and not everyone else enjoys listening to someone prattle on about the intricacies of one’s profession, but some jobs are more than just jobs and they get into your bloodstream. Just like everyone else, I don’t want to talk about it every day. Sometimes my wife asks me how my day was, and I grunt just like one of the kids when asked about school. That’s why they call it work. I grunted most days about school, too. But particularly if you work in a field that demands a manic pace, there is benefit to stepping back periodically and being forced to consider what it is you do. You remember why you do it and remind yourself what you’ve already accomplished and hope to accomplish in the future besides living off your meager 401(k). For the most part, I enjoy hearing firsthand accounts from people in

your community, then reporting is a uniquely fascinating profession for unique people. While I’m Catholic by birth and practice, for more than 20 years journalism has been my secular religion. Just as one’s religious faith seeks to make sense of the practical and spiritual world, journalists try to put the events of the world into their proper context and offer explanations. The desire to do that is intrinsic and uninterested in what some career website says or even what the market says. Maybe someday, like other professions that don’t compensate for their overall value, the market will catch up. If not, count on many to do it anyway.

The only problem is, she wasn’t there. Twenty-two-year-old John Ventresca Jr., of Center Township, faces drunken driving and other charges stemming from the incident on March 2, when Rochester police were called to a convenience store after witnesses saw Ventresca striking other cars and hitting a pole in front of the store. Police said Ventresca told them his grandma had been driving and that she was using the store’s restroom. Police charged him after finding the woman wasn’t in the store – or anywhere else nearby.

8TODAY’S TALKER

Cannibalism found at 1600s settlement The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Scientists revealed Wednesday that they have found the first solid archaeological evidence that some of the earliest American colonists at Jamestown, Va., survived harsh conditions by turning to cannibalism. For years, there have been tales of people in the first permanent English settlement in America eating dogs, cats, rats, mice, snakes and shoe leather to stave off starvation. There were also written accounts of settlers eating their own dead, but archaeologists had been skeptical of the stories. But now, the Smithsonian’s

National Museum of Natural History and archaeologists from Jamestown are announcing the discovery of the bones of a 14-year-old girl that show clear signs that she was cannibalized. Evidence indicates clumsy chops to the body and head of the girl, who appears to have already been dead at the time. Smithsonian forensic anthropologist Douglas Owsley said the remains date back to a winter known as the “starving time” in Jamestown from 1609 to 1610. Hundreds died during the period. Scientists have said the settlers arrived during the worst drought in 800 years, bringing severe food

shortages for the 6,000 people who lived at Jamestown between 1607 and 1625. The historical record is chilling. Early Jamestown colony leader George Percy wrote of a “world of miseries,” that included digging up corpses from their graves to eat when there was nothing else. “Nothing was spared to maintain life,” he wrote. In one case, a man killed, “salted,” and began eating his pregnant wife. Both Percy and Capt. John Smith, the colony’s most famous leader, documented the account in their writings. The man was later executed. “One amongst the rest did

Ill. House panel Report: ’12 Ill. coal exports hit record OKs reform bill

tion’s biggest reserves of coal used in electricity generation and to heat large boilers and industrial furnaces, Wednesday’s report noted. Illinois’ proximity to key shipping routes such as the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to get the coal to the Gulf of Mexico, along with coal producers’ easy access to Illinois highways and rail lines, give the state “a unique export advantage over other states in the region,” Gov. Pat Quinn said in a statement. Illinois’ coal production, which peaked in 1918 at 89 million tons and a work force of more than 100,000, took a beating in the 1990s after the federal Clean Air Act required coal-fired power plants to curb the emission of sulfur dioxide. But Illinois in recent years has enjoyed a coal comeback, partly because U.S. coal-fired power plants increasingly have added more efficient anti-pollution technology.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS

Madigan-backed proposal decried by state union 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 Thursday 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 have 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 teachers and legislators. “It will bring solvency and stability to the four systems,” Madigan said, 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 Illinois House the state from diminishing Speaker promised penMichael sion benefits. Madigan, They point out D-Chicago 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 at the expense of employees. “It’s good that you’re not kicking the can down the road,” said Bayer, executive director of the 40,000-member American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. “It’s bad that you’re kicking our members in the butt.” Trying to catch up with the shortfall will force the state to pay $6 billion to pension counts alone in the coming fiscal year, nearly one-fifth of the total available in general revenue that must also go toward education, health and public safety.

ST. LOUIS – Illinois’ abundant high-sulfur coal once shunned as a pollution source by U.S. utilities saw record demand oversees last year even as domestic coal providers broadly curtailed production as cheaper, competing natural gas crimped their sales, according to new report Wednesday. Energy Ventures Analysis Inc.’s study, commissioned by the Illinois Office of Coal Development, found that 13 million tons of Illinois coal was exported last year, up from 2.5 million tons in 2010 and 5.5 million tons in 2011. In the past two years, the report found, ore made its way to at least 18 countries, most notably China and other Asian countries where demand for coal has been ravenous. Rising four spots since 2009 to become the nation’s fifth-biggest coal-producing state, Illinois last year

In protests, strikes and other demonstrations held in cities across the planet, activists lashed out at political and business leaders they allege have ignored workers’ voices or enriched themselves at the expense of laborers.

in developing countries are nothing new, but the intensity of some of Wednesday’s gatherings suggested workers’ frustrations have grown especially acute, with many demanding immediate action to address their concerns. The anger was painfully evident in Bangladesh, where the collapse last week of an illegally built eight-story facility housing multiple garment factories killed more than 400 in a Dhaka suburb. The building collapse followed a garment factory fire in November that killed 112 people in the country, and it has increased the pressure on the global garment industry to improve working conditions. A loud procession of thousands of workers wound through central Dhaka on Wednesday. Many waved the national flag and demanded the death penalty for the now-detained owner of the doomed building.

CHICAGO – Thousands of demonstrators called for changes in immigration laws and an end to deportations Wednesday, as U.S. Sen.

Morning-after case appealed Fire may have ruptured gas line The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – The Obama administration on Wednesday appealed a federal judge’s order to lift all age limits on who can buy morning-after birth control pills without a prescription. The decision came a day after the Food and Drug Administration had lowered the age that people can buy the Plan B One-Step morning-after pill without a prescription to 15 – younger than the current limit of 17 – and decided that the pill could be sold on drugstore shelves near the condoms, instead of locked behind pharmacy counters. With the appeal, the government is making clear that it’s willing to ease access to

emergency contraception only a certain amount – not nearly as broadly as doctors’ groups and contraception advocates have urged. The order by U.S. District Judge Edward Korman of New York would allow girls and women of any age to buy not only Plan B but its cheaper generic competition as easily as they can buy aspirin. Korman gave the FDA 30 days to comply, and the Monday deadline was approaching fast. In Wednesday’s filing, the Justice Department said Korman exceeded his authority and that his decision should be suspended while that appeal is under way, meaning only Plan B One-Step would appear on drugstore shelves until the case is finally settled.

“We are deeply disappointed that just days after President Obama proclaimed his commitment to women’s reproductive rights, his administration has decided once again to deprive women of their right to obtain emergency contraception without unjustified and burdensome restrictions,” said Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights, which filed the lawsuit that prompted Korman’s ruling. Rather than take matters into his own hands, the Justice Department argued to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that Korman should have ordered the FDA to reconsider its options for regulating emergency contraception.

Syrian leader intensifying efforts The ASSOCIATED PRESS BEIRUT – Syrian President Bashar Assad and his allies are showing renewed confidence that the momentum in the civil war is shifting in their favor, due in part to the rapid rise of al-Qaida-linked extremists among the rebels and the world’s reluctance to take forceful action to intervene in the fighting. His invigorated regime has gone on the offensive – both on the ground and in its portrayal of the conflict as a choice between Assad and the extremists. Several factors appear to

have convinced Assad he can weather the storm: Two years into the uprising against his family’s iron rule, his regime remains firmly entrenched in Damascus, the defection rate from the military has dwindled, and key international supporters Russia and China are still solidly on his side. Moreover, the regime has benefited from the fallout created by audio distributed last month in which the head of the extremist Jabhat al-Nusra group, one of the most powerful and effective rebel groups in Syria, pledged allegiance to al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri.

There are signs of Assad’s renewed confidence. After dropping out of sight following an hour-long speech at the Opera House in central Damascus in January, Assad has appeared in two TV interviews in the past month. His wife, Asma, appeared in public in March for the first time in months, surrounded by women and children for a function honoring mothers. “I can say, without exaggeration, that the situation in Syria now is better than it was at the beginning of the crisis,” Assad said in an interview with state-run broadcaster Al-Ikhbariya on April l7.

Legislators have to act by June 9 Men accused of concealing evidence if they want concealed-carry law • BOMBING versity 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

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 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 and a laptop from Tsarnaev’s room at the Uni-

billion or $200 billion, depending on how you count. The House bill is more robust – it caps the annual 3 percent cost-of-living adjustment for four of the five state-run pension systems and pushes back the eligibility age to receive it. The Senate bill is far weaker, and forces only downstate and suburban teachers to choose between getting the 3 percent COLA or state health insurance upon retirement. But House Speaker Michael Madigan, D-Chicago, rewrote the Senate bill to require state workers to pay more for lesser benefits, in exchange for a guarantee that the state contributes the amount required by actuaries to keep the system solvent. It cleared the House Personnel and Pensions Committee on a 9-1 vote Wednesday, and could face a full House vote by the end of the week. The bill would have to go back to the Senate for a concurrence vote. Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago, has said Madigan’s changes would not survive an inevitable lawsuit by the state’s powerful public-sector unions. The Illinois Constitution states that public pension benefits cannot be “diminished or impaired.” While Gov. Pat Quinn has called pension reform the top legislative priority, he has received criticism from lawmakers for taking no initiative toward making it happen. • CONCEALED CARRY: Lawmakers have until June 9 to come up with concealed-carry legislation before a 2012 federal court ruling negates the state’s ban on carrying concealed weapons. The House has stumbled

and included cuts such as a $400 million cut to public education. Pension reform goes handin-hand with the budget – about 20 percent of General Fund spending in next year’s budget will go to paying the state’s pension obligations. Revenue from the historic 2011 income-tax increase, which was sold as a way to pay down the bill backlog, has been almost entirely swallowed by pension payments. Illinois now has the lowest credit rating of all 50 states. • GAMBLING: Supporters of expanding gambling in Illinois are working to craft a bill that either Quinn would sign, or both houses would find harmless enough to override a veto. The Senate is developing a bill that would allow for five more casinos, including one in Chicago, as well as slot machines in airports and horse race tracks. Quinn vetoed the previous version, arguing that it did not allocate enough money for education and that it contained inadequate protections against corruption and organized crime. It was the second gambling expansion bill in two years that Quinn rejected. • GAY MARRIAGE: A vote could come this month on a bill that would legalize gay marriage in Illinois. The bill cleared the Senate on Valentine’s Day and is now in the House. But supporters have been scrambling since to shore up the 60 votes needed for passage. While Quinn has not shown leadership on the pension crisis, he has been meeting with House lawmakers to shore up support for the bill, which he has pledged to sign into law. Lawmakers in the 2011 lame-duck session approved civil unions for gay and straight couples.

along on the issue. Factors include regional differences – Chicago lawmakers want tight restrictions while downstate lawmakers do not – and the convoluted, amendment-laden process Madigan chose to help develop a bill. A restrictive law proposed by Chicago Democrat Kelly Cassidy garnered only 31 votes, while a less restrictive law backed by downstate Democrat Brandon Phelps fell seven votes short of the 71 votes needed because it would override home-rule authority. The Senate is working on its own version. The original allowed Cook County and Chicago to have more restrictive concealed carry, but a subsequent version imposed those restrictions statewide. Bill sponsor Kwame Raoul, a Chicago Democrat, said it is being rewritten. Illinois is the only remaining state that had a complete ban on concealed carry, but laws vary wildly among the other 49 states. States such as Alaska and Vermont allow unrestricted concealed carry without permits. Hawaii and several other states have concealed carry in theory, but restrictive rules make it almost impossible to get a permit. • BUDGET: The General Assembly has to develop a spending plan for fiscal 2014 that will almost certainly differ from Quinn’s proposal. Quinn’s budget contains $500 million more in revenue than the $35 billion that the House projects. The House over the past two fiscal years has rejected Quinn’s estimates for their own. Fiscal 2014 for state government starts July 1. The current 2013 budget year will end with an $8 billion deficit, and almost $10 billion in unpaid bills will be carried over. Quinn called his 2014 budget “the most difficult ever,”

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. Investigators have not said whether the bombs used in the attacks were made with gunpowder extracted from fireworks. Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov have been in jail for more than a week on allegations they were in violation of their student visas, one because he was skipping classes, the other because he was no longer enrolled.

What’s fair for business The scenario described by Play It Again Sports’ owner Bob Ruer happens all too often in local businesses. A customer comes into his Crystal Lake store, looks around, maybe tries out the wares, and then heads home to buy the same product online. Why? Because Internet retailers aren’t required to collect sales tax at the buyer’s local rate. U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., is pushing to end that with the Marketplace For the record Fairness Act. We support Durbin’s Beyond the unlevel playing effort and encourfield for businesses, the situaage lawmakers tion causes the state of Illinois in Washington to to lose out on a great deal of pass the act. The legislation revenue. would put the initial costs on the states to provide retailers with the appropriate software to collect taxes. Internet retailers with less than $1 million in annual sales would be granted an exemption. Opponents of the bill, including large online retailers such as eBay and Overstock.com, have taken issue with the $1 million exemption and suggested it should be bumped higher. The bill has the support of big-box stores such as Walmart, Best Buy and Target and online giant Amazon. Beyond the unlevel playing field for businesses, the situation causes the state of Illinois to lose out on a great deal of revenue. Now, Illinois taxpayers are on an honor system when it comes to paying state sales tax for online purchases. Residents are supposed to note the sales tax they owe from Internet purchases on their state income-tax return. Durbin estimates that only 5 percent of Illinois taxpayers do so. Gov. Pat Quinn said the state stands to collect an additional $200 million annually in sales-tax revenue if the bill passed. This is not a tax increase. It’s not a new tax. These sales taxes and tax rates are already in place. This is a needed law to level the playing field for local businesses who’ve been good corporate citizens, hired local employees and paid property taxes that support local schools and other taxing districts.

Reject border-crossing fee We are among those baffled by the suggestion from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that imposing a fee for crossing the land borders into the U.S., from Canada and Mexico, is a subject worth studying. We support the stance of Rep. Bill Owens, DPlattsburgh, of being “unabashedly opposed” to the idea, to the extent we feel, as he does, even studying it is a waste of time and money. Should the department study the idea of strip-searching every airline passenger? Should it study putting a ticket booth on the Lincoln Memorial? Should it study putting armed guards at every post office in the country? Some ideas are so impractical, expensive, inconvenient and unworkable they don’t deserve to be studied. They deserve to be skewered, then forgotten. Charging a fee will slow down border traffic already slowed by the stiffening of security after 9/11. Long lines will inhibit cross-border tourism, as will the natural reluctance of visitors to pay a fee for the privilege of spending money in our country. Turning border guards into cashiers will be bad for homeland security, too. Border guards are charged with assessing the legitimacy of trips into the United States. They peer into cars. They ask questions and weigh answers. The Glens Falls (N.Y.) Post-Star

8IT’S YOUR WRITE BBBS thanks its volunteers To the Editor: Big Brothers Big Sisters would like to thank the volunteers who provided one-to-one mentoring during National Volunteer Week. The week was about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out ways to engage in their communities. It was about taking action, encouraging individuals and their communities to be at the center of social change, discovering and actively demonstrating their collective power to foster positive transformation. Volunteer big brothers and sisters have been making that transformation in McHenry County for nearly 20 years. Potential volunteers are carefully screened and matched with a child with similar interests. Big brothers and sisters serve as role models and build strong and enduring friendships that will change the life of that child for the better, forever. Ongoing support sustains matches that are focused on positive youth outcomes. Data show kids in our program are less likely to try drugs, alcohol and tobacco, and are less likely to skip school or drop out. We don’t focus on what society considers at-risk kids. We consider all kids to be at risk in today’s world. One-toone mentoring has proved to be successful in helping kids break negative cycles by making positive choices. A little time spent with a child can have a big impact on his or her future. If you’re interested in being a big brother or sister, contact our

office by calling 815-385-3855. You can keep up with the great things we are doing by liking our Facebook page. Robyn Ostrem Executive director, Big Brothers Big Sisters of McHenry County

Another reality check To the Editor: When the job gains were posted for March, it was yet another reminder that the reported drop in the unemployment rate from 7.7 percent to 7.6 percent was misleading. The real unemployment rate is closer to 14 percent. A paltry 88,000 jobs were created, with most of those jobs being part time, temporary or low-paying jobs. Economists predicted a gain of 190,000 jobs. Over half a million people stopped looking for work. The labor participation rate fell again to 63.3 percent, the lowest level since December 2007. More than 90 million people are out of work. There are 7 million fewer people working now than when President Obama took office. An informed electorate knows the job market has not improved. Was there any real expectation that a president with no business, economic or management experience would have the knowledge and expertise to understand the fundamentals of job creation? His policies of onerous regulations and burdensome taxation reduce the prospects of meaningful job formation. The sequester was created by the president. The anemic cut of 2.4 percent in spending has abso-

lutely no effect on job creation. The sequester does not cut spending. It merely slows the rate of increase in government spending. Until voters demand government get out of the way of business, we will continue to see an inexorable decline in the U.S. job market. The pathetic jobs gain in March was just another reality check.

they can. Our board of trustees is the envy of all the fire districts in McHenry County. Our fire department is the best in the state of Illinois, possibly the U.S. If it’s not broke, don’t try to fix it. It’s easy to criticize when you don’t know what you’re talking about.

To the Editor: In regard to Emily Coleman’s March 26 article, “Residents wonder how project got so far,” I take offense at the criticism of the McHenry Fire Protection District. We are a unique fire department, saving McHenry Township citizens millions of dollars by operating with part-time personnel who are paid full time by other fire districts with a minimum amount of full-time employees. The present trustees are very qualified with years of experience. They are committed to have the best-manned and best-equipped fire department possible, while saving the taxpayers all the money

To the Editor: The Marengo Park District brochure will be coming to your mailbox soon. Take a look at it and see all the new programs that are offered to the community. The park district has gone through some rough times, but those times are past. The management and employees have worked together to make Marengo Park District a fun and valuable part of the community. Take a new look, mark your calendar for upcoming events, and sign up for programs. You will be glad you did. Barb Weidner Marengo

Illinois is worth fighting for; it just needs a little fixing SPRINGFIELD – Every once in a while someone will ask, “Scott, why are you so critical of Illinois?” My response is simple: I love it here. This is the state where I was born and where I was raised. During my adult life, I’ve lived in five states, and the Land of Lincoln is hands down the best. Mind you, a state is more than an amalgamation of laws and policies. It is people and land and opportunity. Much the way spouses offer suggestions to one another, my criticism is done out of love. The hog farm I grew up on near Galesburg is a world apart from Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. But it’s enjoyable to take the train to the city and see Sue the

Dinosaur at the Field Museum or chow down with my kids on a Giordano’s pizza in the Loop. I loved to take my Labrador retriever for long walks on the Ben Butterworth Parkway in Moline. (What an awe-inspiring view of the Mississippi!) I’m proud of the master’s degree I hold from one of the Prairie State’s universities. Make no mistake about it. I’m an Illinoisan by choice. I want to see my three young daughters prosper in this great state. But I worry. • I worry when I drive by the factories in my hometown and see their parking lots overgrown with weeds. Illinois ranks second in the nation for unemployment.

Editorial Board: John Rung, Dan McCaleb, Jason Schaumburg, Kevin Lyons, Jon Styf, Kate Schott, Stacia Hahn

VIEWS Scott Reeder • I’m concerned because Illinois public schools are failing our children. The state’s largest school district, Chicago Public Schools, has a graduation rate of only about 60 percent. • I’m ashamed that our state government fails to be fiscally responsible. Illinois has more than $9 billion in unpaid bills, unfunded pension liabilities of nearly $100 billion, and the worst credit rating in the nation. Politicians of all stripes are to blame.

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

But rather than focus on who is at fault, we need to focus on solutions. After all, Illinois isn’t hopeless. If it were, I wouldn’t have chosen to raise my family here. Here are some thoughts on the state’s current predicament: Taxes: According to the Tax Foundation, Illinois taxpayers bear the fourth-highest burden in the nation. With 46 states offering more friendly environs to both people and businesses, the Prairie State needs to look at lowering rather than increasing taxes – if it wants to attract more people and business. Education: Money should follow the student. Parents should be empowered to use education dollars to buy the best

available education for their youngster – public, private, online and public schools all should be among the options available. Business: Instead of cutting sweetheart deals with big corporations, such as Sears, we need a state that fosters a positive environment for businesses large and small. This can only be accomplished by creating an economy where all businesses – not only politically chosen ones – can benefit from low taxes and regulations. Change never comes easy. But Illinois is worth the fight.

LITH focuses on Route 31 Village officials identify need for more gas stations, car dealerships By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com LAKE IN THE HILLS – Village officials are hoping for more car dealerships and gas stations along Route 31, as they have made adjustments to the town’s comprehensive plan. The comprehensive plan now calls for retail commer-

cial development in the airport area, along with office and warehouse distribution businesses. The plan also now encourages the development of auto dealerships and gas stations along Route 31 because of the recent change to more commercial retail in the corridor. The village has updated

its comprehensive plan “so that future land-use designations correspond with updated market conditions and strengthen our economic development directives to strategically position the village ... to capture commercial investment,” Economic Development Coordinator Gino DeVivo wrote in a memo to the Village Board.

Dan Olson, the community development director for the village, said market studies have indicated there is a need for gas stations and car dealerships along Route 31. “There’s a gap or need in those areas,” Olson said. “They [also] generate a lot of sales tax.”

Expanding horizons Hilltop students learn about world cultures at annual Discovery Day By JIM DALLKE jdallke@shawmedia.com McHENRY – Hilltop Elementary School students combined exercise and cultural awareness Wednesday as the school held its annual Discovery Day. Kindergarten through thirdgrade students spent the day going from station to station learning facts and rituals from

the other six continents. The students learned African dances, named the countries in Europe through a European relay race, and made carnival masks from South America, among other activities. “Being an engaged learner is what all teachers try to do,” said Joan Jensema, a physical education teacher at Hilltop. “We feel we have a unique area that kids can learn and still be mov-

ing or learning through other specialties.” More than 50 parent volunteers helped guide the students through the 16 stations. Hilltop has done the daylong event for more than 10 years. “They’re just so excited,” Jensema said. “They’re learning because they are engaged and enjoying it. And I think that’s the best way for children to learn.”

sshinneman@shawmedia.com HARVARD – On a night two seats were filled by newly elected District 50 School Board members, one more remained open – that left by the resignation of Jessica Bauman. Bauman, elected in 2011, submitted her resignation to Superintendent Lauri Tobias last week. Bauman cited a lack of time to devote to the board because she’s decided to go back to school, Tobias said. “Amazing board member. She was part of our negotiation team,” Tobias said. “We will really miss her.” The board has until June 8 to fill the position. The new board will conduct interviews and vote on a selection. District 50 spokesman Bill Clow said it generally takes a year or two to get acclimated as a board member, but agreed that Bauman had im-

pressed during last year’s negotiations. “She was really kind of showing her skills and getting comfortable and finding her voice,” Clow said. In addition to discussing the vacancy, the board sat new members Richard Crosby and Steve Garrels, who won election in April along with incumbents Rebecca Klein and Richard Stoxen. Diana Bird lost her bid for re-election, while experienced board member Roger Wilhoit decided not to run. “I think when a board looks to fill a vacancy, they look for a gap in expertise that maybe the rest of the board doesn’t have,” Tobias said. She added it wasn’t unheard of to be facing a board vacancy. “It’s happened in the 30-something years I’ve been on a board, or been part of a board,” she said. “It certainly happens.”

GENEVA – Kane County officials have renewed discussions on how to finance a $117 million project to ease congestion on bridges in northern Kane and southern McHenry counties. The proposal to build the Longmeadow bridge and an additional five miles of roadway from Route 62 to Huntley Road in the Algonquin, Carpentersville and Lake in the Hills area has been in the works for about two decades. Kane County transportation planners have sought to establish the bridge as toll crossing, charging users $1 to $1.50. County officials said they believe the project could be financed through such tolls, as well as federal and state transportation funds. However, Kane Coun-

would benefit many residents of McHenry County. Frasz said he, for instance, could support a proposal under which the county would redirect a certain portion of road impact fees that would otherwise be spent in the county’s north end to a reserve fund that would give the county enough money to fund the project, even if tolls far short of estimates. “It’s a matter of having a little more skin in the game,” Frasz said. A county feasibility study has estimated that as many as 10,000 to 12,000 cars could travel the bridge per day. Carl Schoedel, director of the Kane County Division of Transportation, said “if all goes smoothly” work could begin in 2015 or 2016. But he said “the biggest issue” affecting that schedule is the need for a funding decision from the County Board.

ty Board Chairman Chris Lauzen has expressed doubts over the county’s ability to finance the project as it is proposed. The project has earned official endorsements from the village boards of 10 northern Kane County villages, and has been designated as one of Kane County’s top transportation priorities. To address financial concerns, the County Board reviewed several options for financing the project, including issuing bonds, or even engaging in a public-private partnership to construct and maintain the bridge. Kane County Board member Drew Frasz, chairman of the County Board’s Transportation Committee, said tolls remain key to the success of the project, noting that taxpayers in the southern portions of the county should not be made to foot the bill for a bridge that

NORTHWEST HERALD McHENRY – For the past three years, SleepOut for Shelter has helped raise awareness and much-needed funds for homeless services through McHenry County PADS, a program of Pioneer Center for Human Services. This year, the event has gone multi-county through a partnership with PADS Lake

Registration is open at www.sleepoutforshelter. com for the McHenry County PADS event scheduled to take place May 11 at Living Waters Church in Crystal Lake.

ipants can choose to either sleep out at the rally site or they can turn their own lawn into a temporary homeless shelter site. Last year, the event attracted more than 500 participants and raised more than $60,000. To register or learn more, visit www.sleepoutforshelter.com or call Barb Swanson at 815-759-7144.

Cary-Grove Fights Hunger tops $15,000 on final day A day after the official last day of the Cary-Grove Fights Hunger campaign, organizers have raised $15,000 for the CaryGrove Food Pantry, according to an email from campaign coordinator Cheryl Vaughn. Vaughn said checks still are coming in for the third annual campaign, which ended Tuesday. This year, organizers opted for a mail-in campaign rather than setting up numerous events to raise money because the events were too costly. Last year, the campaign brought in $14,000. The first year, the campaign brought in $18,000. It costs about $7,000 a month to effectively run the food pantry. To help benefit the campaign, the Cary-Grove High School Art Department donated proceeds from its annual Rising Artist Show. Students and staff raised $800, and that donation put the campaign over its $10,000 goal, Vaughn wrote.

“The community really stepped up and for that we are so grateful,” Vaughn wrote.

During the screenings, Suleman Bangash, an independent dermatologist on staff at Centegra Health System, will provide a thorough skin exam to detect any skin cancers or precancerous lesions. Although this screening does not take the place of an annual exam by a personal physician, it is a valuable tool for recognizing conditions that could become serious.

CUBS ANALYSIS

Ricketts decides to play hardball on Wrigley renovations

AP image

This artist rendering provided Wednesday 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 the left-field bleachers.

Ricketts says moving is an option; team insists that shouldn’t be considered a threat By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO mmontemurro@shawmedia.com 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-squarefoot 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 con-

sidered a threat, rather an acknowledgment that the organization needs to create revenue to support the $500 million renovation. They hope something can be worked out with the Wrigleyville rooftop owners – who Tom Ricketts 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 already are in jeopardy. Before construction can begin, they must receive public approval.

BASEBALL: JACOBS 3, MCHENRY 2

GAME 6: NETS AT BULLS 7 P.M. THURSDAY, CSN, TNT, AM-1000

Eagles ‘escape’ with win

Surrounded by noise, Bulls try to keep focus

By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com ALGONQUIN – Jacobs had one runner get past first base in the first six innings against McHenry right-hander Andrew Reisinger, and that required three Warriors errors. So the one-run lead McHenry grabbed in the top of the seventh seemed formidable as Reisinger tried to wrap up a victory. “We talked about how they still had to get 21 outs,” Jacobs coach Jamie Murray said. “That’s how it works. We kept working together for seven innings and escaped with the win.” Connor Conzelman reached on an infield hit, Aaron Meciej singled to right field and another Warriors’ error set up sophomore Ryan Sargent to end the game, which he did with oneout fly ball to left-center field. Sargent’s ball was deep enough for a sacrifice fly, but fell to the grass anyway, giving the Golden Eagles a 3-2 win in their Fox Valley Conference Valley Division baseball game Wednesday.

MARENGO 14, RICHMOND-BURTON 7

Indians get offensive By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com RICHMOND – There have been days this season when the Marengo softball team could rely on its pitching without having to worry about much offensive support. But Indians coach Dwain Nance had a feeling his team would need as much production from the plate as it could muster Wednesday against Richmond-Burton

Online exclusive For video highlights of Wednesday’s Marengo/Richmond-Burton baseball game, log on to McHenryCountySports.com. after narrowly escaping the Rockets earlier this week. His players certainly heeded the call as Marengo pounded out 17 hits and got multiple hits from five players in a 14-7 Big Northern Conference win.

“We needed our offense today,” Nance said. “We produced one through nine, and that’s what you need. It’s not just one person.” Marengo (15-6, 5-2 BNC) got five runs in its first at-bat, using a combination of three hits, two walks and an R-B miscue. The lead didn’t last long, though, as the Rockets answered with four runs of its own, capped by Samantha Dahlen’s two-run homer.

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 Tom Thibodeau Center. The bruised-and-bandaged Bulls can advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals with a win Thursday against the Brooklyn Nets. The Bulls lead the first-round playoff series, 3-2, and want desperately to avoid a winner-takeall 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

VIEWS Tom Musick 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 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

FOX VALLEY CONFERENCE GIRLS TRACK AND FIELD MEET

Jacobs soph dominating distance events By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com Jacobs sophomore Lauren Van Vlierbergen was resigned to not running the 800 meters and instead concentrating on the 1,600. After a standout cross country season, Van Vlierbergen and assistant coach Kevin Christian (the cross country coach) figured she would do better at the longer distance. But then Van Vlierbergen went and ran an 800 in 2:13.67 last week, the area’s best time by almost nine seconds in a performance that would have earned her a Class 3A state medal last year. “I can’t decide if I’m going

8INSIDE SOFTBALL Athlete of the Week LAUREN STANLEY Cary-Grove, jr. Stanley combined for 21 strikeouts in two games against Crystal Lake South before pitching a complete-game, six-hitter Wednesday when she struck out three in a 10-0 victory over Huntley. Stanley was thrust into the role of the Trojans’ emergency ace after teammate Lindsay Efflandt was injured after being hit in the face by a batted ball.

Noteworthy Breaking the streak: Crystal Lake South’s 2-1 win over Cary-Grove on Monday gave the Gators more reason to celebrate than perhaps any other win this season. The reason? The victory snapped a four-year losing streak to the Trojans, who had extended their winning streak only two days before with a 2-1 win. But thanks to Sam McLean’s game-winning, two-run homer and sophomore Hailee Massie’s complete game, the Gators finally could boast a win in the rivalry. “It’s a good feeling,” South coach Scott Busam said. “We haven’t beaten Cary-Grove in a long time and district rivals, conference rivals, it’s always a good game and it always means a little bit more for both teams.” Power surge: Tuesday’s warm and windy conditions proved interesting for most teams, but it obviously didn’t bother Harvard’s offensive capabilities. The Hornets played only five innings against Rockford Christian but scored 25 runs – including 11 in the first inning alone. Kaylee Bischke led the hit parade with a triple and five RBIs. For the day, Harvard’s offensive explosion was one of three, as Alden-Hebron (11) and Prairie Ridge (16) also reached double figures in victories.

to do the 800 or 1,600, I’m still not 100 percent,” she said. “I’m still kind of torn.” Van Vlierbergen does not have to choose just yet. For Thursday’s Fox Valley Conference Track and Field Meet she will do both, along with anchoring the Golden Eagles’ 4x800 and 4x400 relay teams. The meet starts at 4 p.m. at Grayslake Central’s William Eiserman Stadium. CaryGrove will be shooting for its fifth consecutive team championship. Sam Baran, Molly Barnes, Kayla Giuliano and Van Vlierbergen will be looking to break Dundee-Crown’s 4x800 record from 2011 of 9:39.01. Christian and Eagles coach

Ryan Lemanski expect that to happen. “There’s no limit to what she can do,” Lemanski said. “Every day you expect something amazing to happen and it’s never anything less with her.” Along with the 4x800 and 800 school records, Van Vlierbergen’s Lauren Van 4:58.1 gave her Vlierbergen the school record in the 1,600 and her 10:44 time in the 3,200 was also a school mark, earning her quite a distinction. “She basically has every record that (Olympian Evan)

Jager has (for the boys),” Christian said. “We stack on races and it’s no problem for her. This’ll be the best test (at conference) where we really stack some races against good competition.” Van Vlierbergen almost feels invincible this entire year. She increased her summer mileage from 30 to 40 miles a week and had an outstanding cross country season. She won the FVC title and her seventh-place finish at the IHSA Class 3A state meet was the best in school history. And she did that with a near stress fracture in her left foot. For the last month of the season, she trained in a pool more than on land.

“I was very happy to get seventh place after battling injuries and stuff,” Van Vlierbergen said. “I’m hoping I can come back next year even stronger.” Van Vlierbergen spent her winter as a reserve guard on the basketball team and ran when she could on off days. Lemanski and Christian marvel at her performances. Van Vlierbergen won the 1,600 in the McHenry County Meet on April 20 against Crystal Lake Central’s Sami Staples (the Class 2A state cross country champion in 2011) and Marengo’s Katie Adams (a Class 2A 1,600 state champion). “She’s running some of these races and she’s not even

tired (at the finish),” Lemanski said. “You look at the most talent-rich mile (at county) I have ever seen and she was running comfortably, just running to win. And it looked like the others were struggling to keep up with her.” Lemanski and Christian have to decide what to do at next week’s Class 3A Belvidere North Sectional. Lemanski said Van Vlierbergen wants the state title this year in the 1,600, which may preclude her also running the 800, except she’s so good at that race, too. “She’s unique,” Christian said. “She’s so focused. She couldn’t work any harder. She puts everything she possibly can into every day she possibly can.”

SOFTBALL: CRYSTAL LAKE CENTRAL 3, DUNDEE-CROWN 2

Tigers edge Chargers in FVC crossover Ellman closes win after solid start by Ward By PATRICK MASON pmason@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – Crystal Lake Central softball coach Brian Strombom knows that no matter the situation, he can count on his pitching staff, and with a slim lead late in the game against DundeeCrown on Wednesday, he had to trust his staff again. “We’ve got great pitching depth,” Strombom said, “so if

I want to go to any of our four pitchers, I know they are going to come through for us.” After getting five solid innings of two-run ball from starter Taylor Ward, Strombom went to his bullpen in the sixth and brought in Shannon Ellman to pitch the final two innings with a one-run lead. Connor watched as the junior closed the door to seal a 3-2 Fox Valley Conference crossover victory for the Tigers. Ellman struck out the first four batters she faced – all swinging strikeouts – as she struck out the side in the sixth and then the first batter in the seventh. The Chargers’ hitters were late on many of Ellman’s pitch-

es, and it was evident when she got some help defensively for the last two outs, both to the right side. She induced a ground ball to second and a pop-up to first to end the game. “I don’t mind it,” Ellman said of pitching during pressure situations, “because either way, I know my teammates are behind me.” The Chargers (3-11 overall, 0-6 FVC Valley) were the first to score after both pitchers cruised through the first three innings. In the bottom of the fourth, Amanda Eissler lined a double off the left-field wall to put runners on second and third with no outs. The next batter, Mallory Schilf, put down an

RBI sacrifice bunt while moving Eissler to third. Eissler later was thrown out trying to score on a passed ball by catcher Paige Rondeau, ending the scoring threat. The Tigers (10-4, 5-0 FVC Fox) answered the Chargers in the bottom half of the fourth with three runs. The Tigers loaded the bases via a single, hit-by-pitch and a walk before Ward singled home Ellman to tie the score at 1. Two batters later, Rondeau hit a two-RBI single up the middle. “I just went up and had confidence and smacked the ball,” the catcher said. “I just went up and did my best.” Added Strombom: “She was looking to make an impact of-

McHenry a game behind • EAGLES-WARRIORS Continued from page C1 The loss knocks McHenry (15-9 overall, 9-4 FVC Valley) to one game behind division leader Huntley. The Warriors are tied with Cary-Grove. Jacobs (16-5, 8-4) is right there, as well, after its third one-run victory in four games. “We try to keep our heads up and whatever happens, we just stay as a team and don’t get down on each other,” Meciej said. McHenry took a 2-1 lead in the seventh when Jack Glosson walked, advanced to second on a wild pickoff attempt by Jacobs starter Reilly Peltier and to third on a double play. He then scored when Meciej had a ball glance off his mitt on a swinging strike and roll to the backstop. “I didn’t want to get down because of that,” Meciej said. “If you visualize yourself doing well, you will do it. I just wanted to put the ball in play and see what could happen.” After Conzelman beat out a close play at first, Meciej singled to right. McHenry third baseman Nick Svoboda, who made a diving play on Conzelman’s ground ball, fielded Jon Berndt’s bunt, but his throw was low at first and

Nick Ledinsky, running for Conzelman, scored. Meciej advanced to third. “We had second and third, one out and I was trying to put the ball in the air,” said Sargent, who moved to 4-1 with the pitching victory in relief. “I got a fastball inside and I was able to put the barrel on it and get it to the outfield.” Center fielder Adam Mattson could not hang on, but would have had a difficult throw to get Meciej. Sargent was credited with a game-winning sacrifice fly on the error. Peltier struck out six and allowed four hits in six innings. Reisinger (2-3) allowed no earned runs, which dropped his ERA to 1.37. “We just don’t hit for [Reisinger],” McHenry coach Brian Rockweiler said. “We really probably didn’t deserve to win, making three errors in the first inning. We couldn’t seem to make enough plays today.” Reisinger saw it as a tough loss for the Warriors to take. “I hit today. I have to help myself out, too,” Reisinger said. “I have confidence in my teammates when they’re hitting. Their hitting has been phenomenal. It’s bad luck that it happens when I’m pitching, but I’m going to compete with them. That’s my team, I want to win it with them.”

Indians add 3 runs in 3rd • INDIANS-ROCKETS Continued from page C1 Nance pleaded with his team to play with more energy with starting pitcher Bethany Hart struggling with control and fatigue. Knowing their offense could break the game open, the Indians locked in mentally after R-B made its first-inning surge. “You can’t let down,” center fielder Megan Semro said. “You can never feel safe.” The Indians struck again in the third, adding three more runs – two of which came on Semro’s two-run homer before Gabbi Markison added a solo shot, pushing their lead back to five runs. Marengo got plenty of production from its No. 2 and No. 3 hitters – Abby Kissack (four hits) and Stephanie Cartwright (five hits).

Despite all of Marengo’s firepower, R-B (5-8, 4-6 BNC) never completely was out of it until the seventh inning, when the Indians again broke the game open with four runs. The Rockets drew to within 10-7 with two runs in the fourth inning and another in the sixth, aided by RBI singles by Megan Spohr, McKenna Wegner and Brogan Etten. But after proving this week that it could play Marengo close in a 7-5 loss, the Rockets’ youth aided Marengo’s late offensive burst. The Rockets had three errors and couldn’t come up with the timely hits they needed. In the two-run loss this week, six of the runs R-B gave up were unearned. “We have the potential – it’s just avoiding messing up the routine plays,” R-B coach Stephanie Rasmusen said. “We’re in that game, and a lot of it is us getting out of our heads.”

fensively today. She has been huge for us defensively and she got those two huge RBIs for us. She deserves it.” The Chargers added one more run in the top of the fifth to close the deficit to 3-2. But that was all they got. Chargers coach Tracy Beatty said she thought Eissler had one of the best outings she’s had all season after handling a tough Tigers lineup. She also liked the way her team played throughout. “I felt like we put the bat on the ball today, and defensively we played extremely solid,” Beatty said. “Fundamentally, we did the right things, and we’re coming together at the right time.”

CUBS 6, PADRES 2

Feldman tosses 3-hitter in win The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Scott Feldman stole the show on a night Andrew Cashner made his first start against the Cubs, the team that made him its No. 1 pick in 2008. Feldman retired 18 straight on his way to his first career complete game, a three-hitter, and the Cubs took advantage of their former top pick’s wildness in a 6-2 win over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday. “It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while,” Feldman said of the complete game. “Always seemed like my pitch count got up or [I] got taken out a little before that could happen.” After the eighth, Feldman (2-3) asked Cubs manager Dale Sveum if he could get a chance at his first complete

Next vs. San Diego, 1:20 p.m. Thursday, CSN, AM-720 game. Sveum obliged, and even though Feldman gave up a home run to Chase Headley, he finished the game and ended with a career-high 12 strikeouts while allowing just two runs, three hits and two walks. Cashner (1-2) lasted four innings and gave up five runs, four earned, on six hits, four walks, a wild pitch and a hit batter. He was dealt to San Diego in January 2012 for Rizzo, who was 1 for 4 with a stolen base for the Cubs. Feldman has given up three runs in his last 15⅔ innings for the Cubs.

WHITE SOX 5, RANGERS 2

Sox end 3-game skid By STEPHEN HAWKINS The Associated Press ARLINGTON, Texas – Chris Sale had already thrown 49 pitches to get through the first two innings for the White Sox, and was lucky to have only given up two runs. The left-hander settled down after that, making it through seven innings, and the Sox snapped a three-game losing streak with a 5-2 win over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday. “The one inning, just seemed like there were people all over the place,” manager Robin Ventura said. “For him to come out of it only giving up two [runs] to that lineup, he kind of gutted through it.” A base-running blunder by the Rangers in the second also helped. Conor Gillaspie homered leading off the seventh to break a 2-2 tie and Alejandro De Aza added a two-run homer later in the frame to chase

Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com

Next at Texas, 7:05 p.m. Thursday, CSN+, AM-670 rookie right-handed starter Nick Tepesch (2-2). AL West-leading Texas managed only two runs in the second despite a homer, three singles and a walk. Sale (32) then faced only one batter over the minimum 15 the next five innings, benefiting in one from a double play he started. “You’ve just got to focus when stuff starts going wrong. That’s something I’ve really had to work on, keeping my composure and not getting in my own head, being my own worst enemy,” Sale said. “The game’s not over in the second inning.” Addison Reed worked the ninth for his ninth save in as many chances this season, and 15th in a row going back to last season.

CHICAGO – The Minnesota Wild got a terrific effort from Josh Harding in a tough spot. Ryan Suter helped Minnesota keep the Blackhawks’ high-powered attack in check, and the Wild still lost Game 1. The problem for Minnesota is the same one the Hawks presented all season long to the rest of the NHL, and it could become even more important as the series moves forward. The Hawks are so deep that it’s tough to keep track of everyone. Take the overtime goal in Tuesday night’s playoff opener, which went to the Hawks’ third line. Or the ice time on the score sheet, which showed a pretty even distribution for the Hawks compared to an astounding 41 minutes for Suter and 34 for fellow Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin. “Every shift’s critical, and it’s important that you hold up your end of the bargain,” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said Wednesday. “Your depth’s going to get challenged and I think we found out all year it was one of the strengths of our team. This year, in the playoffs, I don’t think that’s changed at all, maybe it would even be that much more important.” Minnesota’s depth was challenged when goalie Niklas Backstrom was scratched with a leg injury after he hurt himself while reaching for a puck as he warmed up for Game 1. Harding, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis last summer and played in only five games this season, responded with 35 saves. “To not expect to play and halfway through warm-ups you find you have to play,

The Hawks won, 2-1, in overtime. to flip that switch, that’s a tough thing,” Suter said. “I thought he did great. That’s a lot of pressure on a guy to come in and perform, and he did. Hopefully, he continues to have great success like he had.” Backstrom and right wing Jason Pominville are day to day, according to coach Mike Yeo. Pominville missed the last two games of the regular season after he was elbowed in the chin by Dustin Brown of the Los Angeles Kings. That means Harding could be in the net again for Game 2 on Friday night at the United Center, a week after he replaced an ineffective Backstrom and allowed three goals himself in a 6-1 loss to Edmonton that nearly cost the Wild a playoff spot. “I was anxious for a lot of reasons to see him have a

chance to bounce back,” Yeo said. “He was thrown into a tough situation in that Edmonton game, and if you know Josh, he’s a competitor and I’m sure he was looking for an opportunity to get back in there, too. Obviously, he wasn’t expecting it to happen like that. You’ve got confidence in the guys that are in your room.” The Hawks rolled to an NHL-best 36-7-5 record this season, winning the Presidents’ Trophy for the first time in 32 years and raising the expectations for a second championship in four years. Nine players had at least 20 points, helping them to 149 goals – second only to high-scoring Pittsburgh. Beyond Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa, Patrick Sharp, rookie Brandon Saad and speedy

Viktor Stalberg all are capable scorers. Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland came up with a handful of big plays this year. Defensemen Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook and Niklas Hjalmarsson can contribute on both sides of the ice. Thanks to all that depth, the Hawks kept winning even when injuries arose and forced Quenneville to shuffle the lines a bit. Bolland and goalie Ray Emery, who have been out with lower body injuries, could practice Thursday, but Quenneville was uncertain about their availability for Game 2. From the stars to the role players, the Hawks have received contributions up and down the roster this season. And they think it could make a difference as the series wears on against the Wild. “That’s supposed to be one of those advantages we have as a team, that if the game goes late like it did last night, that we still have a lot of energy,” Toews said. “We still have a lot of legs and we can keep going and rely on whoever it is to score that overtime goal. It doesn’t really matter who gets the job done. We’ll find ways to wear teams down.” The overtime goal in Game 1 went to Bickell, who went to his backhand to slide the puck between Harding’s legs for the score. Defenseman Johnny Oduya helped set up the winning play with a long pass to Stalberg, who found Bickell in the middle of the ice. That was the very end of Minnesota’s first playoff appearance in five years, but the Wild remain confident. “What if we score the overtime winner? What’s the story today?” Yeo said. “Are they saying what a great job that our top line did and how their top line needs to find more, because 5-on-5 they didn’t have much either. And that’s one important thing to remember. The difference in the game was we scored one 5-on-5 goal, and they scored one 5-on-5 goal, and they got one power play [goal] and we didn’t.”

Rose’s teammates certainly could use his assistance • MUSICK Continued from page C1 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 following 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

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, AP photo but Derrick has had a very Bulls guard Derrick Rose (second from right) watches Game 2 of a serious injury that requires time.

The longer the renovation takes, the less Cubs will have to spend • CUBS ANALYSIS Continued from page C1 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 an offer of land from Rosemont’s may immediately, or at least suggested the Cubs would give it a legitimate consideration, he would hold more leverage. However, the rooftop own-

ers 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.”

Herb Franks, successful attorney and fisherman By STEVE SARLEY sportsdesk@nwherald.com McHenry County attorney Herb Franks is a powerful man. He is well known for his work in both banking and worker’s compensation law. He helped establish a number of area banks, each of which spawned a number of branches. If he had his way, though, Franks probably would trade it all in to be a famous professional fisherman. Franks lives on a farm just outside of Marengo with his wife, Eileen. They’ll celebrate 56 years of wedded bliss next month. In fact, it was Eileen who encouraged Herb to take up fishing. “She was the fisherman, not me,” Franks said. ”She’s from Tallahassee, Florida. She encouraged me to take up fishing because she always wanted to be fishing. I figured that if I ever wanted to spend time with her, I’d better take it up and go fishing with her.” Herb and Eileen raised three sons, one of which is state Rep. Jack Franks. All of the boys grew up to be fishermen and accompany their parents on the water whenever they can. “I’m proud of the fact that Jack will always protect the rights of the sportsmen and protect our woods and waters as long as he holds public office,” Franks said. “It’s a good thing that fishermen have a friend serving in the House.” With Eileen’s encouragement, Herb Franks took up fishing with a passion. His name began to get around when, after winning a tournament, radio fishing show host

McHenry County attorney Herb Franks would probably trade in all his professional credentials to be famous pro fisherman, writes Northwest Herald outdoors writer Steve Sarley. Art Mercier interviewed him and asked him to take a trip with him to Canada’s Great Bear Lake. They became friends and Mercier hosted him on his show regularly. Franks was then asked to be a field tester for Garcia rods and reels. The venture ended abruptly. “I just quit,” Franks said. “They had me fishing tournaments and wanted to film everything. I was just focusing on the camera and not concentrating on fishing. I couldn’t catch fish. I told them to just forget it.” Franks wanted to get into walleye tournaments but couldn’t give up the time it took to be a professional, so he entered many PWT events as a co-angler.

“What a great experience. For a couple hundred bucks you get a chance to fish each day with some of the greatest fishermen in the world,” Franks said. “I got to fish with all of them, ‘Mister Walleye’ Gary Roach, Ron Seelhoff and Mike Gofron. “All those guys know me because I am such a colorful character. We had fun and I did pretty well. Tommy Skarlis, one of the best, always had his amateur partner bake homemade cookies for him. These guys put food on their tables by winning money, and I finally realized I was holding them back. They could have a better partner, so I stopped doing it.” Franks loves to travel to various locations in Canada to chase big fish. His bus trips with Secretary of State Jesse White, other well-known state politicos and radio wildman “Mancow” Muller are annual events. He once hooked up with noted pro angler Mike Norris for a trip to Tazin Lake in the farthest corner of Saskatchewan. Pressed for time, Franks was able to arrange transportation on a private luxury Lear jet, which was better than a 14-hour bus ride. “Herbie is a good friend and a serious fisherman,” Norris said. “I always have a good time out on the water with Herb Franks.” When asked which trip is his favorite, Franks had no hesitation in making the decision. “My favorite fishing trip is the next one I’ll be taking,” he said. Franks is 79 and not slowing down. He’ll keep spending his days in the courtroom and his free time on the water.

Keep it simple when choosing a jig The only thing simpler than fishing with a plain hook and bait is using a jig. There really is nothing more basic. You can find them in most tackle stores in bins where you can mix and match a few jigs by size, weight and color for a buck or so. Of course, there are upgrades. Some jigs have premium hooks or are made of exotic metals such as tungsten. Some jigs can be bought dressed with feathers, plastics and tinsel. Noted Lake Geneva guide and tournament angler Doug Becker markets his “Defender” jig, a big football headed model, loaded with options. Lindy’s Fuzz-E-Grub is probably the most famous of the many premium jigs. The basic jig is a round lead ball with a hook on one end and an eye sticking out near the front. I have every color imaginable resting in my tackle box, but my best days of walleye fishing on the Fox Chain have come with the late Darrell Baker using an unpainted jig tipped with a piece of nightcrawler or a small minnow. It truly doesn’t get any more basic than that. I’m not saying that color in jig selection isn’t important, just that there can be times when it doesn’t matter. I always have to have a couple of chartreuse and orange jigs with me and, for some reason, blue works well for me on rivers. I’ll rotate my colors until I find the one that the fish prefer at times when the color makes a difference. More important than color is weight. You should always use the lightest weight jig that you can, as long as you can get it down to the bottom. If the jig is too light and you can’t feel the bottom, then move to the next heavier one. If the jig is too heavy, you’ll snag the

OUTDOORS Steve Sarley bottom an awful lot and the fish will drop your bait as soon as they feel the weight of the jig. You want to be as stealthy as possible. Another option that makes a difference is the shape of the jig. I like the football shape when using very heavy jigs. The omnipresent round jigs are good for most applications. I am using jigs that are made to stand straight up when dragged across the bottom more often than not lately. These jigs keep the live bait or plastic that I put on them to be the most visible to the fish for the longest amount of time. Jigs with pointy heads are perfect for swimming them back through weeds. These jigs cut through the weeds and snag up much less. As artificial presentations keep getting more exotic and more expensive, nothing has been able to replace the simple jig. It works for most species of fish and definitely is cost effective, as well.

FISHING/OUTDOORS NOTES Dave Kranz from Dave’s Bait, Tackle and Taxidermy in Crystal Lake reports: “Fishing in ponds and lakes that are open has been good for bass and crappies. This week we have seen a good jump in water temp and this is getting the fish active. Waxworms, small minnows or Berkley Gulp plastics will work for crappies. The live bait of choice for bass would be golden roach minnows or a nightcrawler. Senkos, spinnerbaits or shallow running crank baits will work for artificial lure users. Catfish are

hitting cut bait.” Call 815-455-2040 for updated reports. For up-to-the-minute water conditions on the Fox Chain and Fox River, visit foxwaterway.state. il.us/ or call 847-587-8540. You can call Wisconsin’s Lake Michigan Fishing Hotline at 414382-7920 to hear the latest fishing information for Lake Michigan and its tributaries. Wisconsin’s regular inland game fish season opens Saturday. IHSA tourney postponed: The IHSA announced that the 2013 Bass Fishing State Final Tournament, scheduled for Friday and Saturday at Carlyle Lake, has been postponed because of potentially dangerous water levels. The date has not been announced yet, but it will be later in the spring.

Fox Lake tourney May 19: Hopefully, the water will recede in time for the first tournament on the Fox Chain. Thousands in fishing and raffle prizes will be awarded May 19 at the eighth annual Fox Lake Fishing Tournament. The entry fee is a reasonable $40 and includes a post-tourney bash featuring music by the Rural Route One Band. The sign in starts at 6 a.m. and the tournament kicks off at 7. The weigh in is at 2 p.m. For a complete list of fish categories, prizes and rules, visit foxlakefishing.com/forum/ index.php.

Middle schooler’s hearing aids can’t tune out laughter 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 already have 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

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips or person in authority so that person can speak privately with the guilty parties and explain why your hearing aids and the microphone are necessary. Your parents also should 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 and 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

Corneal transplants have high success 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 need to adjust or discontinue certain medications that could increase your risk of surgical complications. In the meantime, the eye bank will confirm 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.

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff Corneal transplants usually are 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 usually are 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 first was 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 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 their vision can be restored.

two years ago. I am the only living relative of their 28-year-old 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 al-

‘Restless’ top Emmy nods THINGS

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

Thursday, May 2, 2013 • PlanitNorthwest.com/buzz

CBS’ soap “The Young and the Restless” earned a leading 23 Daytime Emmy nominations Wednesday, including three of the four competitors for best actor, while ABC rival “General Hospital” had 19 nominations. The 40th annual Daytime Emmy awards will be June 16 in Beverly Hills, Calif., televised for the second year on the cable network HLN. Nominations were announced Wednesday.

Richards doesn’t own an iPod He’s rock royalty and likes to keep it old-school: Keith Richards says he doesn’t own an iPod. The Rolling Stones guitarist says he isn’t a fan of the ultra-popular music device. “I don’t have an iPod. ... I still use CDs or records actually. Sometimes cassettes. It has much better sound; a much better sound than digital,” he said in a recent interview. The 69-year-old believes music lovers are “all being shortchanged” with the sound that comes out of an iPod, launched in 2001. “My old lady’s got one. My kids have got them. I say, ‘Look me up this.’ Or, ‘Oh I like that. Check me that,’ ” he said. “I know what these things can do. I’m not totally anti-them.” The Rolling Stones’ “50 & Counting Tour” kicks off Friday in Los Angeles. The Stones released their self-titled debut in 1964, and while Richards has accepted that the music industry is digitally driven today, he’s not completely OK with it. “They’re sucked into it and they can’t get out of it, nor can we; so is the public,” he said. “There’s something missing there, but it’s the price of the future I guess.”

PepsiCo once again is learning the risks of celebrity partnerships after an ad for Mountain Dew was criticized for portraying racial stereotypes and making light of violence toward women. The soda and snack food company said it immediately pulled the 60-second spot after learning people found it was offensive. The ad was part of a series developed by African-American rapper Tyler, The Creator, and depicted a battered white woman on crutches being urged to identify a suspect out of a lineup of black men. A goat character known as Felicia is included in the lineup and makes threatening comments to the woman, such as “Ya better not snitch on a

The Civil Wars to return The Civil Wars are returning with a new album. The duo announced the news on their website Wednesday. They posted an image of the new self-titled album’s cover along with a pair of handwritten notes from Joy Williams and John Paul White thanking fans for their patience. The album will be released late summer by Columbia Records and is the follow-up to The Civil Wars’ debut, “Barton Hollow.” That album earned the duo two of their three Grammy Awards and a rapidly growing fan base. But their future together appeared in doubt when they canceled a European tour mid-trip, citing irreconcilable differences.

Bags for Kids Big Brothers Big Sisters leadership board celebrates anniversary with fundraiser By KEVIN P. CRAVER kcraver@shawmedia.com A community group created to help Big Brothers Big Sisters of McHenry County is celebrating its first anniversary by holding a blowout fundraiser for the charity it loves. It was a year ago next Wednesday that community leaders banded together to form a Community Leadership Board to advance Big Brothers Big Sisters’ cause by raising awareness, and raising funds. It’s been rewarding for leadership board member Lauren Young, who founded Crystal Lake business marketing firm Freshly Baked Communications. She is one of eight members on the board. “It’s been awesome, honestly. McHenry County is so supportive of a lot of non-profit organizations – they’re really involved,” Young said. “The community is extremely strong.” The group holds two signature fundraising events each year. This Saturday, they hope that bags enthusiasts countywide head to Buffalo Wild Wings in Crystal Lake to participate in its inaugural Bags for Kids Tournament. “We want to have an event to welcome spring, get everyone out and show them what Big Brothers Big Sisters is all about,” Young said. Big Brothers Big Sisters Executive Director Robyn Ostrem said she and the board of directors are happy with what the new group has accomplished in its first year. McHenrybased Big Brothers Big Sisters served 540 at-risk youth last year by pairing them with mentors. Ostrem recruited Young after reading about her in a February 2012 business profile in the Northwest Herald. The board of directors felt that a leadership board would help get more people involved, especially

The leadership board’s two fundraising events – the other being the August charity car show at Volo Auto Museum – augment Big Brothers Big Sisters’ four annual events. Fundraising makes up about half of the charity’s budget, with the rest split somewhat evenly among the United Way, grants and individual contributions. But awareness is as important a mission as fundraising for the leadership board, Ostrem and Young said – they paraphrase the leadership board’s mission as “networking with a purpose.” “We’re all about helping youth succeed and lead happy lives, and having some fun in the process,” Young said.

Best April in 6 years for truck, car sales

Fed may adjust its pace of bond purchases By MARTIN CRUTSINGER AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON – The Federal Reserve on Wednesday stood by its extraordinary efforts to stimulate the economy. And it signaled that it could increase or decrease the pace of bond purchases depending on how the job market and inflation perform. After concluding a two-day policy meeting, the Fed said in a statement that the job market has shown some improvement in recent months, on balance. But it also notes that unemployment remains high and govern-

ment budget policies have begun to restrain economic growth. The Fed maintained its plan to keep short-term interest rates at record lows at least until unemployment falls to 6.5 percent from its current 7.6 percent. And it said that it will continue to buy $85 billion a month in Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities. The bond purchases are intended to keep long-term borrowing costs down and encourage more borrowing and spending. The statement was nearly identical to the one issued after the Fed’s

March meeting. The one notable change was the Fed signaling it could change its pace of bond purchases. “The committee is prepared to increase or reduce the pace of its (bond) purchases to maintain appropriate policy accommodation as the outlook for the labor market or inflation changes,” the statement said. The Fed action was support on an 11-1 vote. Many analysts now think the Fed will keep the Fed’s easy-credit policies unchanged, possibly for the rest of the year.

DETROIT– Ford, GM, Chrysler and Nissan all reported double-digit U.S. sales increases last month, signaling the best April for car and truck sales in six years. A rebound in pickup truck sales led the way, especially for the Detroit automakers. Small businesses are replacing aging trucks that they’ve kept since the Great Recession. Ford’s sales increased 18 percent, with the F-Series pickup gaining 24 percent. At Chrysler, sales rose 11 percent, led by the Ram pickup, with a 49 percent sales increase. GM also saw an 11 percent sales jump, with Chevrolet Silverado pickup sales rising 28 percent for the month. Nissan reported a 23 percent sales gain over April of 2012. Honda sales rose 7 percent, led by the CR-V small crossover SUV, while Hyundai sales were up 2 percent on strong sales of the Elantra compact. The only laggards were Toyota, with a sales decline of 1 percent, and Volkswagen, with a drop of 10 percent. Americans continue to buy new cars and trucks even though unemployment remains high and economic signals of late have been mixed. All automakers reported monthly sales Wednesday, with an overall increase of around 10 percent over April of last year. That would make it the best April since 2007. Chrysler Group LLC said it sold 156,698 cars and trucks last month. Sales of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV increased 27 percent. Dodge brand sales rose 18 percent, with the Dart compact car posting its best month ever with sales of nearly 8,100. But the Chrysler brand struggled, with sales falling 13 percent. Ford Motor Co. sold 212,584 cars and trucks. The F-series pickup remains the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. Sales totaled 59,000 in April. And sales of the redesigned Escape SUV rose 52 percent. General Motors Co. reported sales of 237,646 cars and trucks.

How concealed gun law may impact businesses The Illinois House and Senate have been working on several versions of what would become state law regarding the carrying of handguns in public as well as on privately owned property. Businesses and landlords will need to understand the legislation to ensure they are aware of their rights to permit or restrict firearms on their premises, as well as to ensure they do not violate Conceal & Carry (C&C) gun law. The recent C&C legislative effort arose from the federal appellate court’s ruling in Moore v. Madigan. The court in Moore invalidated Illinois’ general prohibition on carrying handguns in public but afforded the state legislature 180 days to enact an appropriate law to permit some form of C&C. Illinois is the only state that does not currently have a C&C law. If the Illinois General Assembly fails to enact C&C legislation by June 9, then Illinois would revert to what is deemed “Constitutional Carry,” meaning there would be no law prohibiting the carriage of otherwise legal hand-

guns. Attorney General Madigan is appealing to the Supreme Court for more time to enact legislation, but there is no guarantee the Supreme Court will hear the issue, much less grant an extension. While two legislative efforts have already been voted down, the House was only seven votes short of approving a C&C bill in recent weeks so there is good reason to believe that the General Assembly is narrowing in on a passable version of C&C legislation. Recent discussions have primarily involved whether Cook County would have separate, more restrictive C&C licensing procedures from the rest of the state. One area of concern for business owners is whether employees or customers will be able to bring firearms onto business property. The versions proposed so far would allow a business owner to restrict firearms from being brought into a place of business. However, the question remains whether the presumption will be that a licensee can

BUSINESS LAW Brad Stewart bring a firearm onto private property without express permission, or whether it will be presumed that a licensee can only bring a firearm onto private property with express permission. If it’s the former, which was the language proposed in the nearly successful House bill, any business that does not want firearms on its property would have to post “conspicuous notice,” such as signs, so a licensee knows that firearms are not allowed, or else the licensee would not break any law by carrying a handgun onto the business property. According to the same proposed language, even if the business restricts firearms on its premises, licensees would still be allowed to bring handguns in vehicles onto the business premises, such as to a parking lot, although they would

have to secure firearms in their vehicles out of plain sight. As it pertains to employees of a business, the same rules generally apply. The best practice would be to implement or review a written policy that specifically addresses the business’s desired policy regarding guns in the workplace, although employees would still be able to bring and store firearms in their vehicles, if the recently proposed language prevails. It must be separately noted that all proposed legislation seeks to restrict firearms from being brought to certain locations. For example, the bills proposed thus far agree that firearms cannot be brought to an establishment that derives the majority of its income from alcohol sales, even if left secured in parked vehicles. Another area of concern is for commercial and residential landlords.

Even with gas prices on the decline, compact cars remain popular. Sales of the Chevy Cruze rose 21 percent. Nissan saw demand for the recently redesigned Altima midsize car and Sentra compact. The company also took a step toward boosting future sales. It announced price cuts on seven models that make up 65 percent of its U.S. sales. The cuts, effective on Friday, run from $580 on the top-selling Altima to $4,400, on the Armada big SUV. VW’s sales drop was led by its top-seller, the Passat midsize car, which fell 10 percent. Despite a slight drop, Toyota was optimistic about the rest of the year. Sales chief Bill Fay said the overall market increase is a good sign for all automakers, “especially with new products, low inter-

C&C license on the leased property. Under the language of the proposal that nearly passed, lease language would have to be updated to make sure the landlord is not unlawfully prohibiting possession of firearms as a condition of the lease agreement. There are, of course, several other considerations that will accompany whatever is ultimately contained in an Illinois concealed firearm law. Because new legislation is imminent, however, businesses are well-advised to review policies in anticipation of the forthcoming changes, contemplate desired restrictive signage, and seek legal advice to ensure compliance with the law.

est rates and plenty of pentup demand.” Chrysler predicted that total U.S. sales will hit an annual rate of 15.4 million in April. That’s a little higher than most analysts’ predictions. April is likely to be the sixth straight month of sales above a 15 million yearly pace. Barring an unexpected event that causes a real estate price collapse or rapidly rising job losses, there’s little to stop sales from growing further in the next few years, industry analysts say. “I don’t see any significant hurdles on the horizon,” said Alec Gutierrez, a senior market analyst at Kelley Blue Book. “I don’t see us taking a step back, provided the unemployment rate at least holds steady.” He expects U.S. auto sales to end the year around 15.3 million cars and trucks, up 5.5 percent from last year’s 14.5 million.

Facebook revenue up 38 pct. in 1Q The Associated Press MENLO PARK, Calif. – Facebook says its net income and revenue grew in the first quarter of the year, helped by an increase in mobile ad revenue. Facebook Inc. said Wednesday that its net income was $219 million, or 9 cents per share, in the January-March period. That’s up from $205 million, or 9 cents per share, in the same period a year ago when the company was still private. Revenue grew 38 percent to $1.46 billion from $1.06 billion. Facebook said its mobile advertising revenue represented 30 percent of the total at $375 million.

8IN BRIEF T-Mobile USA completes MetroPCS acquisition NEW YORK – T-Mobile USA, the country’s fourth-largest cellphone carrier, has completed its acquisition of smaller rival MetroPCS. T-Mobile is adding 9 million MetroPCS customers to its own 34 million. The combined company will still lag No. 3 Sprint Nextel Corp. in size. No immediate changes are expected for customers of either company. However, T-Mobile plans to shut down MetroPCS’s network over two years, which means MetroPCS phones will eventually stop working. T-Mobile will use the space freed up on the airwaves to boost its own coverage and data speeds. T-Mobile, a subsidiary of Germany’s Deutsche Telekom AG, will gain its own U.S. stock listing by merging with Dallas-based MetroPCS Communications Inc. The combined company will be called T-Mobile US Inc. and will start trading on the New York Stock Exchange Wednesday under the ticker symbol “TMUS.”

Caterpillar union members reject pact SOUTH MILWAUKEE, Wis. – The union representing more than 800 workers at the Caterpillar plant in South Milwaukee has rejected the company’s contract offer. The six-year deal would have frozen wages, but provided additional job security. United Steelworkers Local 1343 did not provide the vote tally. Caterpillar’s proposal would cap the number of layoff weeks at 14 per year for the life of the contract. The company said that would reduce or eliminate the need for indefinite layoffs due to downturns in the mining equipment market. Caterpillar employees are paid between $18 and $34 an hour. The proposed contract included a $2,500 ratification bonus.

CVS Caremark 1Q profit soars 23 percent CVS Caremark Corp.’s first-quarter earnings jumped 23 percent and topped analyst expectations, as an influx of generic drugs continued to help the drugstore operator and pharmacy benefits manager’s profitability. The Woonsocket, R.I., company said Wednesday a strong flu season, new clients and Medicare prescription drug plans brought more claims to its pharmacy network. But new generic drugs were the main reason its profit climbed. For the first quarter, CVS Caremark earned $956 million, or 77 cents per share. That compares with earnings of $776 million, or 59 cents per share, in last year’s quarter. Adjusted earnings totaled 83 cents per share in the most recent quarter, and revenue fell slightly to $30.76 billion.

Generic competition cuts Merck’s 1Q sales Drugmaker Merck & Co. on Wednesday reported lower first-quarter results and cut its 2013 profit forecast by 15 cents a share. Competition from generic versions of its drugs and unfavorable exchange rates – problems hurting most drugmakers these days – hurt Merck. Merck, based in Whitehouse Station, N.J., said the stronger dollar cut revenue by 2 percent, but the big hit was copycat version of its top seller, asthma and allergy drug Singulair. It got U.S. generic competition last August, and as a result Singulair sales plunged 75 percent in the quarter, to $337 million from $1.34 billion.

Construction spending down 1.7 percent By MARTIN CRUTSINGER AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON – Spending on U.S. construction projects fell in March as the biggest drop in government projects in more than a decade overwhelmed strength in home building. Construction spending fell 1.7 percent in March, compared with February, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday. It marked the second decline in the past three months. January activity plunged a record 4 percent, which represented a downward revision from a previous estimate of a 2.1 percent decline. Even with the recent weakness, construction activity was 4.8 percent higher in March than a year ago at a seasonally adjusted $856.7 billion. For March, private residential construction rose 0.4 percent, the only major sector showing a gain. Government construction activity fell 4.1 percent, the biggest drop since March 2002, while private nonresidential building was down 1.5 percent. The weakness in government activity occurred at all levels. Spending by state and local governments was down

AP file

In this March 29 photo, a worker helps frame a new home under construction in Matthews, N.C. 4.2 percent while spending by the federal government on construction projects was down 1.7 percent. Economists are expecting federal activity to be reduced in coming months as different agencies cope with across-the-board spending cuts that went into effect on March 1. The weakness in nonresidential activity reflected

declines in spending on commercial projects such as shopping centers. The rise in residential construction continued a trend that began last year and showed that the housing recovery is being sustained by rising demand. Spending for single-family homes was up 1.6 percent while multi-family construction rose 0.3 percent

in March. For all of 2012, construction spending increased 9.8 percent. That marked the first annual gain after five straight years of declines. Construction spending is still well below healthy levels although housing is helping to support building activity in the face of weakness in government projects. Steady hiring and nearly re-

cord-low mortgage rates have encouraged more Americans to buy homes. More people are also moving out on their own after living with friends and relatives in the recession. That’s driving a big gain in apartment construction and also pushing up rents. New-home sales rose 1.5 percent in March to a seasonally adjusted 411,000. The level was 18.5 percent higher than a year ago. Sales of previously owned homes slipped in March compared with February. But they are 10.3 percent higher than a year earlier. Gains in home sales are helping to lift housing prices and encouraging builders to ramp up activity. U.S. homebuilders started work on more than 1 million homes in March at a seasonally adjusted annual rate. That’s the first time it has crossed that threshold in nearly five years. Still, a limited supply of homes for sale could slow the housing recovery’s momentum. And many would-be buyers are unable to take advantage of low mortgage rates because banks have imposed tighter credit conditions and are requiring larger down payments.

Manufacturing grows at slower pace in April By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON – U.S. factory activity expanded at a slower pace in April compared with March as manufacturers pulled back sharply on hiring and cut their stockpiles. The Institute for Supply Management said Wednesday that its index of manufacturing activity slipped to 50.7, down from 51.3 in March and the slowest pace this year. A reading above 50 indicates expansion. A measure of hiring fell to 50.2, the lowest level since November. That

Factories may also see slower sales this spring because consumers are starting to feel the impact of higher Social Security taxes. Americans increased their spending from January through March at the fastest pace in more than two years. But spending on goods fell in March, a sign that the tax increase may be catching up with consumers. Consumers are more optimistic that the job market is healing and will deliver higher pay later this year, according to a survey of April consumer confidence released Tuesday. And lower gas prices could offset some of

suggests factories cut hiring again in April. But several aspects of the report were encouraging: Measures of new orders and production rose. Order backlogs also grew at a faster pace. The ISM is a trade group of purchasing managers. The drop in factory activity may be a sign that companies worried about across-the-board government spending cuts that began on March 1. Businesses slowed their investment in facilities and equipment in the first quarter. And weaker growth overseas threatens demand for U.S. exports.

Comcast profit rises 17 pct. NEW YORK – Comcast Corp., the nation’s largest cable company and owner of NBCUniversal, on Wednesday said its net income rose 17 percent in the latest quarter, powered by continued strong results from its cable operations. Price increases on cable TV helped boost numbers, as subscribers paid an average of $3.40 more per month compared with the same period last year. Comcast also continued to recruit new broadband and phone customers at a brisk pace, and broke above 10 million phone customers for the first time in the quarter. It’s the country’s fourth-largest home phone company, behind AT&T, Verizon and CenturyLink. The Philadelphia-based company’s shares rose 81 cents, or 2 percent, to $42.11 in morning trading. At the open, they hit $42.47, near the

all-time high of $42.61, hit a month ago. Comcast earned $1.44 billion, or 54 cents per share, in the first quarter. That was up from $1.22 billion, or 45 cents per share, in the same quarter a year ago. Excluding a gain of 3 cents per share due to the sale of some airwaves licenses to AT&T, earnings were 51 cents per share. That was a penny higher than the average forecast of analysts polled by FactSet. Revenue rose 2.9 percent to $15.31 billion. Analysts were expecting half a percent more, at $15.38 billion. Comcast’s revenue didn’t grow as fast as usual because it broadcast the Super Bowl last year, but didn’t this year. Excluding that effect, revenue would have grown 4.7 percent, it said. Comcast lost 60,000 cable-TV subscribers, breaking a trend of slowing losses.

Time Warner 1Q earnings climb The Associated Press NEW YORK– Earnings at Time Warner Inc. grew 24 percent in the first three months of the year despite a slight drop in revenue, as the company benefited from strength in its television networks. Time Warner Inc. said Wednesday that first-quarter net income was $720 million, or 75 cents per share, compared with $583 million, or 59 cents, a year earlier. Adjusted for one-time items, the company earned 82 cents per share. But revenue of $6.94 billion was short of the $7.16 billion expected by analysts. In the same period last year, revenue was $6.98 billion. Time Warner said revenue growth at its television channels such as TBS and HBO was offset by declines at the studio production and magazine businesses. The company said the Warner Bros. studio was successful with television productions, including hits such as “Revolu-

tion” on NBC and “The Following” on Fox. But revenue at the studio fell 4 percent to $2.7 billion because its movies didn’t do as well in theaters and it had fewer TV shows available for licensing abroad.

Viacom earnings fall Viacom – whose media networks unit includes MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon – posted an 18 percent drop in second-quarter net income Wednesday due to lower revenue, especially from the filmed entertainment division that includes Paramount Pictures. It’s a tough comparison to last year, when Viacom was raking in proceeds from “Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” and the company actually surpassed Wall Street’s profit expectations. Viacom reported earnings of $478 million, or 96 cents per share, in the January-March period. That’s down from $585 million, or $1.07 per share, in the same period a year earlier.

the pinch from the tax increase. Factories cut jobs in March after five months of hiring. And manufacturing output declined in March, the Federal Reserve said earlier this month, despite a jump in auto production. The economy grew at an annual rate of 2.5 percent from January through March, the government said last week. That was an improvement from the anemic growth of 0.4 percent in the final three months of last year. Most economists expect growth will slow in the current quarter and remain subpar for most of the year.

Sales on roll in Woodstock’s Maples at the Sonatas Jerry Kuyper WOODSTOCK – During a recent four-week period, seven homes were sold at Maples at the Sonatas, a ranch-style community on the city’s north side. “It was a blistering pace,” Maples developer Jamie Wilcox of Epcon Communities said. Wilcox noted that the maintenance-free community appeals to people looking to rid themselves of cutting the grass, trimming bushes, mulching flower beds, and shoveling snow. Prices start at $184,990 for a

1,718 square-foot ranch. Wilcox noted that mortgage rates are at historic lows. He added that with a mortgage-free loan program for buyers age 62 or older, sales will continue at a record pace. A homeowner’s association arranges for maintenance services. Association fees are about $150 monthly. “The long dormant housing industry is finally rebounding. Families can sell their existing home easier now and for a better price than ever before during the past four years,” Wilcox said. “This is a great time for our customers because they typically have a home to sell before they buy one of our

A kitchen in the Palazzo model at the Maples of the Sonatas community in Woodstock has hardwood floors and a center island.

• BUILDER Continued from page F1 Cathedral or tray ceilings are design elements that come at no extra cost. Other features are ceramic floor tile in the foyer, a laundry room, energy-efficient gas forced-air heating system, 50-gallon quick-recovery water heater, thermopane insulated windows, cabinetry options, central air conditioning and rooms pre-wired for cable television and telephones. Options that cost more money than the standard price include fireplace, hardwood floors, granite or Corian countertops, and upgraded cabinetry and appliances. Owners have the privilege of using the community’s private 3,000 square-foot clubhouse and heated swimming pool. The clubhouse includes a social room (with fireplace, flat screen TV and a pool table), kitchen, fitness center, restroom facilities with showers and a meeting room. Flowers, bushes, shrubs, trees and grass sod surround the clubhouse and each single-family ranch. Landscaping is vital in all Epcon communities, Wilcox said, as it absorbs sound, “creates beautiful vistas, attracts birds and butterflies, and allows rainwater to be absorbed into the ground. All of these ingredients blend together to create a beautiful community.” A sales center and decorated models are open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

turn left onto Vivaldi, and turn left again on Schumann Road. For information call 815-3340340 or www.EpconCommunities. com. Epcon Communities also has communities in Plainfield and Valparaiso, IN. The company built more than 26,000 ranches in the United States. When he began the Maples community seven years ago, Wilcox said, “Homes are ranches on a single level and maintenance-free at the Maples community in the Sonatas subdivision. Those features attract different types of buyers, but certainly the handicapped individuals will be interested as, for example, our homes have wide doorways and switches at accessible heights.” There are no front or rear steps to climb or descend and, for the most part, interior stairs have been eliminated. “The front floor is completely flat to the rise at the threshold. The garage does have a six-inch step, or gas ledge, so that an inadvertent spill does not leak into the house. But we can install a ramp at that six-inch step for better access to the garage. “The community is not age-restricted, but it is a great living arrangement for older active adults, who are our biggest category of buyer. Even so, Maples will have appeal to everybody, including younger buyers,” Wilcox continued. “Our EpCon communities get lots of single women in their 30s and 40s, including divorcees and widows, who like the village-type community very much as it has lots of security to go along with the amenities.”

Gerstad gets in on sales upswing NORTHWEST HERALD Roger Gerstad, president of Gerstad Builders in McHenry, wants to take advantage of the rebounding new-house buying market. To do that, Gerstad has completed a furnished ranch model at Bailey Estates, his company’s subdivision in Williams Bay, WI. The ranch is a plan never offered before at the subdivision. It is called the Bay View and has 1,740 square-feet of living space. It is priced at $214,990. The price includes amenities such as an English basement, central air conditioning, hardwood floors and General Electric stainless steel appliances (gas range, microwave range hood and dishwasher). The Bay View is on a half-acre lot and is the sixth ranch plan offered at the community. There is a third bedroom for those with growing families, Gerstad noted. The basement has a third bathroom roughed in. Gerstad added that for empty-nesters, the floor plan eliminates the need to climb stairs, plus the dinette at the front of the ranch is immediately adjacent to the “ergonomically efficient kitchen. “ “With the residential home market experiencing a rebound for the first time in four years, we thought now would be a great time to introduce an entirely new ranch plan at Bailey Estates,” Gerstad said. “We hope families take some time to walk through our furnished home and check out our quality construction and attention to details.” Designed to reflect traditional exterior architecture, the ranch has a side-load two-car garage, steeply raked rooflines and decorative brick . “Because of clever architectural details like a cathedral ceiling in the great room, eight-foot ceilings in all other rooms and the elimination of unnecessary walls between the kitchen and great room, the feeling of spaciousness is emphasized significantly,” Gerstad said. “A luxurious master suite completely occupies one side of the home for maximum privacy and is finished with a ceramic tiled shower stall, oversized soaking tub with ceramic tile deck, dual clothes closets and dual bath vanities.” In addition to the new Bay View and other ranch plans, Bailey Estates also has two-story houses that typically

A new design by Gerstad Builders of McHenry for a house at the company’s subdivision in Williams Bay, Wis., is called the Bay View. The model, which includes a great room with vaulted ceiling is priced at $214,990. feature vaulted ceilings, 9-foot first floor ceilings, three to five bedrooms, two to three bathrooms, living-dining-family rooms, kitchen with 42-inch upper cabinets, breakfast area, basement and an attached two-car garage. These designs provide 1,740 to 3,177 square feet of living space and are priced from $209,990 to $284,990. Options include skylights, three-car garages , wood-burning fireplaces, additional volume ceilings, custom millwork, imported ceramic tile, Corian or granite counter tops, hardwood floors, and English or walkout basements. Any floor plan can be modified. Since each house is stick-built, customizing is possible. That means, Gerstad said, that designs can be expanded, additional volume ceilings can be incorporated, and interior and exterior walls can be relocated. He added that after almost 40 years of experience in the residential homebuilding industry, his workmen can easily make the changes. A sales center is at 438 Ashley Drive off Bailey Road, less than a mile west of Route 67. It is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekends and by appointment weekdays. For information, call (262) 245-9750, (262) 903-5555 or visit www. gerstadbuilders.com. Besides Williams Bay, Gerstad is developing subdivisions in Richmond, Poplar Grove and McHenry.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

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 it, South should rebid two no-trump. This is gameinvitational, indicating some 10-12 points and at least one stopper in the unbid suit, hearts. (If you use two-over-one gameforcing, 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

inesse is working, there will be no problems. But if it loses, declarer will need a club trick. South should duck the irst trick and take the second spade, to ind 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.

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.

Lloyd’s Paint n’ Paper Downtown Crystal Lake

The colorful windows of Lloyd’s Paint n’ Paper in Downtown Crystal Lake are both a charming and familiar sight for area residents, representing 53 years of home decorating expertise. Bought by Lloyd & Dorothy Gould (CLC class of 1938) in Woodstock in 1960, Lloyd’s is now owned and operated by Al & Bernadette Gould. The building, celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, was built by Ziba Osmum and opened in1913 as a vaudeville theater. R. W. Gracy purchased the theater in 1915 and renovated it into the GEM a motion pictures theater. In 1929 it became an A & P grocery store. James Vinci purchased the building and moved his Crystal Lake Paint store from its original location on Railroad Street in 1951. Lloyd’s Paint n’ Paper purchased Vinci’s in 1975. The staff at Lloyd’s has been with the company for many years, providing customers with the most knowledgeable professional staff in the business. Lloyd’s Paint n’ Paper offers everything you need for redecorating your home, from fabrics and quality paints to custom window treatments. Customers can bring in samples of anything they would like to match, and the staff will work to create a unique and beautiful interior design. continued on back

The Airborne Toxic Event “Such Hot Blood”

The Airborne Toxic Event rescued me from the music graveyard. Three years ago, I thought I had reached the point in my life where I had no room remaining for new bands or new music. I liked what I liked and wasn’t interested in anything new. Then I discovered The Airborne Read Toxic Event and its self-titled debut Rob Carroll’s review of “Such album. I get hooked on a band beHot Blood” on cause of its sound, meaningful lyrics page 22 or a strong live performance. With Airborne, I got all three. This week, the band released its third studio album, “Such Hot Blood.” I’ll reserve judgment until I can give it a few more spins, but nobody rocks a violin like The Airborne Toxic Event. If you have room for new music, give the band a try. – Jason Schaumburg

ALBUM

Crooked Fingers, “Breaks in the Armor”

Singer/guitarist/songwriter Eric Bachmann gained some minor notoriety in the ’90s with the garage-rock band Archers of Loaf, but he’s spent most of the past 15 years releasing albums under the name Crook Fingers, and with that outfit, he adopts a more down-to-earth, folksy feel than the days of squealing guitars with AoL. Crooked Fingers hasn’t had anything approaching a breakout hit, but it has a devoted following, and 2011’s “Breaks in the Armor” was the best of a halfdozen releases so far. With a deep voice reminiscent of Neil Diamond after a weeklong bender, Bachmann constructs deeply felt tunes that sound stripped-down and spare at first, only revealing their layers of complexity the third, fourth, fifth time you hear them. Standout tracks include “Bad Blood,” which includes Bachmann’s enthusiastic rendition of these lines: “I’ll take my chances on the hustle/I’ll cut my losses and keep movin’/Double-cross’ll cost you double/But you got nothing left for losing.” Also check out “The Counterfeiter,” “Typhoon” and “Your Apocalypse.” – David Lemery

BOOK

“Death From the Skies”

I’m reading a book right now about how the world could end. No, I’m not talking about the ongoing zombie craze or National Geographic’s “Doomsday Preppers.” I’m talking about a strike by an asteroid, or the Earth and everything on it being roasted by being too close to a supernova or having the bad luck of wandering into a gamma-ray burst. The 2008 book, “Death From the Skies,” by astronomer Philip Plait highlights the real astronomical threats that face the Earth, from said asteroid to the day the Sun starts running low on fuel. Plait is an astronomer with a great wit and a writing style that makes complicated issues easy to understand. His previous book, “Bad Astronomy,” also is a great read. By the way, if you have the misfortune of having to tolerate an acquaintance or relative who believes we faked the moon landings or won’t leave the house if their horoscope is bad, “Bad Astronomy” has everything you’ll need to bring said individual back to, how shall I say, a stable orbit. – Kevin Craver

DVD

“Django Unchained”

Quentin Tarantino’s latest film showcases every unique characteristic you’ve come to know and love within the director’s diverse filmography. The dialogue is incredible, the violence is over-the-top and the performances are marvelous. There are a couple missteps (the Ku Klux Klan scene is pretty useless and barely funny, and the movie probably should have ended 20 minutes earlier), but upon a second viewing, these issues feel less glaring. But if you’re watching a Tarantino movie, what you’re undoubtedly most excited about are those performances. Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington and Samuel L. Jackson all do a sublime job, but it’s Leonardo DiCaprio who really benefits from a second viewing. His performance is in such stark contrast to the actor’s customary outings it’s impossible to look away. Keep an eye out during the dinner table scene for the moment when DiCaprio accidentally cuts his hand when he slams it on the table. With his hand bleeding profusely, he wipes the blood on Kerry Washington’s face for effect. You have to wonder if Kerry’s reaction was acting or just plain shock and terror. – Zachary Walters

APP

Sun Seeker

I’m always looking for new apps to make my life a little easier, and the Sun Seeker app does just that. Once you activate it, it finds you on the map and shows, by the hour, where the sun will be in relation to you. As a photographer, I am always searching for great locations to make beautiful photos during the “Golden Hour,” that hour right after the sun rises or before the sun sets. With Sun Seeker, you can see exactly where the sun will rise and set. I also am conducting a personal house hunt, and it’s a great way to see before I buy where the sun will hit the house of my dreams. – Sandy Bressner

MEET YOUR

BARTENDER CARRIE GRANATELLI BAR OR CLUB: Firewood Restaurant & Sports Lounge in McHenry HOMETOWN: Spring Grove YEARS AT CURRENT JOB: 4 1/2

Carrie Granatelli of Spring Grove started bartending because of the flexibility it offered while she attended college. The job stuck. At 34, Granatelli has bartended for Firewood Restaurant & Sports Lounge in McHenry for about four and a half years and other places before that. She studied commercial recreation management and worked as a restaurant manager for awhile, but returned to bartending. “There’s no plan on leaving any time in the near future,” she said. “There’s a lot more flexibility and I like the people. It’s something different every day. You always meet new people.” Let’s meet Granatelli. – Jami Kunzer

FIREWOOD IS ... a fun sports bar and a nice upscale restaurant as well. So there’s something for everybody.

WATCH THE VIDEO

OUR MOST POPULAR DRINK IS ... I would say our craft beers right now.

THE STRANGEST THING I’VE EVER BEEN ASKED IS ... I don’t know. Nothing’s really coming to mind. I’d have to think about that one.

MY FAVORITE DRINK TO MAKE IS ... I would go with Layered Bomb Pops. A CUSTOMER SAYS, ‘SURPRISE ME,’ YOU GIVE THEM ... I always ask if there’s anything they really don’t like irst, and then it depends on the season. Margaritas of different lavors are always fun for the summer. And, for the winter, more of the Chocolate Martinis, something a little heavier. YOU CAN GET ON MY GOOD SIDE ... by just being nice and smiling. THE WORST PICKUP LINE I’VE HEARD BEHIND THE BAR IS ... I don’t know that I’ve heard a really terrible line. It’s more just seeing people who have had too many drinks and are not capable of coming up with a good line.

THE WORST THING I’VE EVER SEEN SOMEONE DO IN A BAR IS ... I’ve seen a few really bad ights, and a few people getting sick at or around the bar which also ranks right up there.

Scan this code with your smartphone to watch a video of Carrie Granatelli or visit PlanitNorthwest.com.

THE BEST CURE FOR A HANGOVER IS ... a Bloody Mary. WHEN I’M NOT WORKING .... I’m swimming, hanging out at home with my husband and two dogs, hanging out with family and friends.

YOU CAN FIND ME BEHIND THE BAR ... on Monday nights and every other Wednesday night and every other Sunday.

Crystal Lake’s Jori Parys readies new R&B music, plans to release several songs, including the first single, ‘I Want This’ By JAMI KUNZER • jkunzer@shawmedia.com

J

ori Parys finished high school early, packed her bags and headed out to make a career in music. At age 18, she’s already weathered the industry for several years. She’s worked with award-winning producers and management companies to write and record her original music. And soon, she’ll release her first single, “I Want This,” followed by others in a string of eight or nine original songs. ••• With her latest music, described as R&B and hip-hop, the January 2012 Prairie Ridge High School graduate said she’s found her niche. “It’s definitely more of who I am,” she said. “The last year has really prepared me for this moment. I’m really excited for it. I can’t wait for people to hear what I’ve written. “I’m hoping this music can take me to the next step of continuing to climb the ladder.” Parys has performed throughout the area

and elsewhere for more than a decade, including singing The National Anthem for Chicago Slaughter and at local festivals, such as the Cardboard Cup Regatta in Crystal Lake. Through contacts she made at those performances, she spent the past year in Orlando, Fla., where she was able to work with Frankie Biggz, a record producer known for his work with numerous Latino and R&B artists. Biggz has produced tracks for Mariah Carey, Eminem, 50 Cent, Kanye West, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Through that collaboration, she said, she also had the privilege of working with Donna Wright of Wright Stuff Management Group of Orlando, which has helped musicians, such as Pink, ’NSync, New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys. Back home in Crystal Lake briefly, Parys

said she is finalizing dates to perform and promote her latest music throughout the area. After that, she said she’s not sure what the future holds, but she intends to continue pursuing a career in music and possibly acting in the future. She said she hasn’t ruled out college and intends to take several classes at McHenry County College this summer. “I’m hoping I can start traveling a little more and working with more producers, and making more music and have some music on the charts,” she said. She counts artists such as Beyoncé, Whitney Houston, Christina Aguilera and Eminen as her influences. The latest songs include some rap music, she said. They’ll be released a couple at a time, she said, as opposed to as an entire album. Once eight or nine songs come out, she said, a CD likely will be released. The genre is much different from the music she originally focused on several years ago, which was more country rock, Parys said. She wrote some of the lyrics soon to be released while in high school, changing them up a bit to reflect her latest style. “It has been a very, very crazy year. I’ve had ups and downs,” Parys said. “It’s one step at at time, but I’m hoping for the best.”

Third time’s a charm for ‘Iron Man’ “Iron Man 3”

HHH 1/2

STARRING: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce

PLOT: Prone to anxiety attacks after battling By JEFFREY WESTHOFF A series’ third film is not supposed to be as fresh and nervy as “Iron Man 3,” but this series has always bucked the conventions of superhero movies. Never forget the first movie ended with Tony Stark junking the whole secret identity thing and declaring, “I am Iron MORE Man.” ONLINE Historically, the third Watch the film in a superhero series trailer to “Iron is the one that becomes Man 3” at both bloated with too PlanitNorthmany characters and west.com emaciated by too thin a plot. This happens when the studio decides profits from action figure sales trump the virtues of storytelling. “Spider-Man 3,” where the studio forced director Sam Raimi to include Venom as a villain, has become the go-to cautionary tale, although “Batman Forever” paved the way. Marvel has gotten smarter since “Spider-Man 3,” and “Iron Man 3,” with

aliens in “The Avengers,” Tony Stark (Downey) now spends most of his time tinkering on new armor. That changes when a terrorist calling himself the Mandarin (Kingsley) threatens Tony’s girlfriend (Paltrow) and brings the war to Tony’s front door. RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of science-iction action and violence throughout, and brief suggestive content RUNNING TIME: 2 hours, 10 minutes Robert Downey Jr. again superb in the title role, sidesteps the problems associated with the third-movie curse by not repeating the first two films. “Iron Man 3” has a different feel from its predecessors, including “The Avengers,” and that makes it as surprising as it is exuberant. For once, an Iron Man movie doesn’t end in a CGI smackdown between Tony Stark and a villain who has acquired a more powerful suit of armor. Shane Black, who previously directed Downey in “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,” takes over directing duties from Jon Favreau and delivers more of a hard-core action movie with a driven pace. Favreau shows there are no hard feelings by reprising his role as Happy Hogan, Tony Stark’s head of security, and scoring some early comedy relief before the action turns grim.

The story picks up sometime after “The Avengers,” where Iron Man flew into a wormhole to stave off an alien invasion during the climactic battle in Manhattan. The very mention of New York will trigger an anxiety attack in Tony, so he spends most of his time puttering in his lab perfecting new versions of his Iron Man suit. He is now up to the Mk 42 armor. Several figures and events from Tony’s past, illustrated in a flashback to New Year’s Eve 1999, will return to haunt him. A former girlfriend, Maya Hansen (Rebecca Hall), has almost perfected her formula to regrow lost human limbs. While I always thought scientists in the Marvel Universe who developed formulas to regrow limbs turned into giant lizards, Maya’s approach has a more lethal side effect: The body might overheat and explode with a blast that rivals a concentrated nuke. That side effect gains the attention of a terrorist who calls himself the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) and patterns his look after Osama bin Laden. For the Mandarin, lackeys who can blow themselves up without the aid of explosive vests make the perfect suicide bombers. While that is brewing, rival tech genius Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) comes calling on Stark Industries and hopes to woo Tony’s gal Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) into a business and romantic relationship. Tony once spurned a younger, geekier Killian that same New Year’s Eve in 1999.

• IRON Continued from page 15 Killian founded a think tank called AIM, so longtime Marvel fans know he shouldn’t be trusted. Tony’s friend Jim Rhodes (Don Cheadle) also returns, now promoted to the president’s (William Sadler) personal bodyguard. “Rhodey” has changed his nom de guerre from War Machine (which tested as too militant) to the Iron Patriot, with the suit receiving a red, white and blue makeover. It has become a trend in a series’ third installment to tear the hero down to his basics and make him prove himself once more with only his wits. It happened with James Bond in “Skyfall” and with Batman in “The Dark Knight Rises” and with Iron Man here. Just as Bruce Wayne spent most of “Dark Knight Rises” separated from his Batman identity, Tony Stark spends most of “Iron Man 3” without the armor that provides his super powers. First the villains attack Tony’s friends, then they destroy his Jetsons-style mansion on the Pacific Coast. Tony escapes, but his armor, with the artificial intelligence voiced by Paul Bettany, finally does what it threatened to do so many times in the previous installments. It conks out completely. Tony winds up stuck in a small Tennessee town with no high-tech labs for repairs and no one to help him but a herostruck young boy (Ty Simpkins) with access to an auto shop. The idea of a boy aiding a superhero may sound hopelessly corny, like something out of a 1950s DC comic, but Downey saves the bit by respecting the kid without betraying the least bit of sentimentality. Black, who co-wrote the script with Drew Pearce, piles on the action (which includes a surprising amount of gunplay for a superhero movie), but he maintains the focus on Tony Stark’s evolving personality and his romance with Pepper, which got shunted into the background in the first two movies. Again, this attention to the hero’s inner turmoil invites comparisons to “Dark Knight Rises,” but where Batman is brooding and stoic, Iron Man is glib and quip-happy. The entry

point may be similar, but the results are coded to the hero’s personality. Downey’s quips and sarcasm help “Iron Man 3” generate more laughs than today’s standard comedies. Black also undercuts many typical hero moments, yanking away the bravado at the last moment. Stick around after the credits and you’ll be rewarded with a great joke. The Mandarin is one of Iron Man’s oldest villains, but comic purists won’t be pleased with his portrayal. For a man

who claims a Chinese identity, the Mandarin speaks with a strange, stilted Midwestern accent. Kingsley’s delivery makes the Mandarin’s terrorist pronouncements extra chilling, and his attitude becomes something else entirely once Tony confronts him. Overall, “Iron Man 3” benefits from a villain whose intelligence, determination and decisive actions recall Alan Rickman’s Hans Gruber from the original “Die Hard.” Downey dominated this series from the start, but his control over “Iron Man 3” is

even more impressive than in the first two films. With a flip attitude that hides a conflicted conscience and an understanding of the character as deep as Tony Stark’s marrow, Downey continues to bring an electricity unlike any other performer in the superhero world. It is impossible to conceive of anyone else playing Iron Man. Good luck rebooting this one.

MAJOR TALENT ‘M*A*S*H’ star Loretta Swit stars in Woodstock staging of ‘Eleanor Roosevelt: Her Secret Journey’ By JAMI KUNZER jkunzer@shawmedia.com

S

he might be best known for “M*A*S*H,” but Loretta Swit’s beloved television role as Major Margaret “Hot Lips” Houlihan was sort of an interlude. An 11-year, history-making interlude, but one nonetheless. “I’ve always done theater,” Swit said in a phone interview this week. “It was television that was an interruption. I come from theater.” Her latest and favorite role – “My favorite is always the one I’m doing at the moment, which kind of sounds fickle, and I am.” – is that of Eleanor Roosevelt. Swit stars in the one-woman production of “Eleanor Roosevelt: Her Secret Journey” at 7 p.m. May 5 at the Woodstock Opera House, 121 Van Buren St. Written by Rhoda Lerman, the intimate production follows the years after World War I, as recalled by Roosevelt looking back from 1945. Described as educational, the show paints a portrait of Roosevelt. “Her canny and clear-eyed intelligence helped her evolve from an ugly duckling into a powerful woman whose greater beauty emerged from the warmth and compassion she brought to issues of war, peace and human rights,” a description says. Told from Roosevelt’s memoirs, it takes place after the death of her husband, President Franklin D. “ELEANOR ROOSEVELT: Roosevelt.

The play begins when President Truman asks her to head the American delegation to the newly created United Nations. Knowing this would be a big step for any woman, Roosevelt reviews her life before deciding to accept the offer that ultimately landed her on the world stage. “It’s a lovely insightful look into a very special human being,” Swit said. “And in many cases, women today are enjoying the fruits of her labor, the fruits of her being. She did so much for women during her time, during her tenure on earth. “I just look at it as a privilege to be able to do justice to her with the writing. She’s just a very special character.” Swit, who starred in the now legendary “M*A*S*H” from 1972 to 1983, was involved in theater before, during and after that experience, which she calls a “highlight” of her life. No one could have imagined the legendary status the television show would reach, she said. “Nobody would have that kind of foresight,” she said. “You’re talking about imagining a phenomenon.” When first approached to sign a seven-year contract for the television show, Swit actually hesitated.

In “M*A*S*H,” Loretta Swit (center) starred as Major Margaret “Hot Lips” Houlihan alongside Mike Farrell (left) as BJ Hunnicut and Alan Alda (right) as Benjamin Franklin “Hawkeye” Pierce.

• SWIT Continued from page 18 “It made me nervous because I didn’t know if I wanted to commit myself for seven years,” she remembered. “This was for the pilot. ... I said to my then agent, ‘That’s quite a commitment.’ He said, ‘Nothing runs for seven years.’ Of course, we joked about it for a long time afterwards.” As Houlihan, Swit received two Emmy awards. She was one of only four cast members (the others being Alan Alda, Jamie Farr and William Christopher) to stay for all 11 seasons of the show. She and Alda were the only actors to have been in both the pilot episode and the finale. “I worked with some of the greatest people, my dear friends,” she said. “I had a lot of wonderful, wonderful experiences, all very good experiences working on “M*A*S*H” for as long as we did.” The show has endured, she said, because of its high quality and everyone

involved. She thinks of “M*A*S*H” as film, each of its 251 episodes as individual feature films. “It’s never been off the air. What’s happened is the kids growing up who are now parents have their kids watching and in some cases, their grandparents,” she said. “It’s always been a show you could do that with. It’s a family show.” As for future roles, Swit said along with her continued theater work, she’ll possibly be working on a couple feature films, including a horror spoof about vampirism. “I love the genre, and spoofing the genre is kind of fun,” she said. She’s also starred in a traveling production of the comedy thriller, “Murder Among Friends.” “It’s a far cry from playing Eleanor,” she said. “That’s the fun of what actors do, the big swing from one character to the next ... I learned how to scuba dive for a role once, and I fell in love with the sport. I’m not sure I would have done that on my own. “That’s one of the perks of being an actor.”

ROB CARROLL WITH MUSIC’S NEW RELEASES

Snoop Lion

“Reincarnated” H 1/2 Snoop Dogg as a reggae artist. I get it. There’s the whole weed association and the fact that this album was put out near April 20 (look up the reference). But that’s about the only thing Snoop Dogg, oh I’m sorry, Snoop Lion, really has going for him when it comes to making it as a reggae artist. “Reincarnated,” his first venture into the genre, does little to help his cause. The beats, some reggae-dance fusion material thanks to studio gurus Major Lazer, are there, but Snoop fails to deliver. His trademark drawl is not cut out for this stuff. Instead, Snoop tries to sing, but the music leaves him in the dust. As expected, there are plenty of songs about smoking weed. There also is a robust list of guest stars including Drake, Akon, Busta Rhymes and Miley Cyrus. Yes, you can listen to Miley sing “now my buzz is gone I need to re-up on reality” on a song called “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks.” At least Snoop doesn’t sound as out of place when he’s paired with another artist from outside the genre. Snoop isn’t as successful when he teams up with someone more adept at recording such an album. Collie Buddz’s appearance on “Smoke The Weed” shows just how far behind Snoop is in the reggae game. It would be difficult to imagine the rapper making another reggae album after this one.

FEATURED RELEASE The Airborne Toxic Event “Such Hot Blood” HH

“Such Hot Blood,” the third full-length studio album from Los Angeles-based The Airborne Toxic Event, is expectedly well-written. Afterall, frontman Mikel Jollett was a freelance writer before starting the band. Jollett often finds ways to cram well-thoughtout stories into songs that never seem bloated with a bunch of filler. “She said all your songs are sad songs./Why do you always have to see the worst of it?/Could you write me just one love song?/Put my name somewhere in the middle of it./It’s not hard to write Elizabeth,” Jollett sings on “Elizabeth.” The lyrics are never too overly descriptive as they remain clever and still totally accessible. But while the song writing is up to snuff on “Such Hot Blood,” the songs are all too often predictable. As they have on past albums, The Airborne Toxic Event have a knack for slow-building songs. Sure, their crescendo rock brings some drama to the table, but three albums in, their payoff comes with little surprise. You know the drums are going to pick up on “The Storm.” You know Jollett’s going to pour more emotion into the chorus on “Timeless.” Too much of “Such Hot Blood” feels like you’re watching a movie when you’ve figured out the ending in its first act. OUT THIS WEEK Beacon, “The Ways We Separate”; The Blow Monkeys, “Feels Like a New Morning”; Kenny Chesney, “Life On a Rock”; !!!, “Thr!!!er”; Coyote Clean Up, “2 Hot 2 Wait”; Deep Purple, “Now What?!”; Guided By Voices, “English Little League”; HIM, “Tears On Tape”; Iggy and the Stooges, “Ready to Die”; Tom Keifer, “The Way Life Goes”; LL Cool J, “Authentic”; Pushmen, “The Sun Will Rise Soon on the False and the Fair”; Jessica Sanchez,

Art Brut

“Top of the Pops” HH 1/2 In the press materials for “Top Of The Pops,” frontman Eddie Argos makes a case for Art Brut to be known as a “classic rock band.” Part of his argument involves his band following a particular blueprint. “Album One, Excited; Album Two, Confused; Album Three, Angry; Album Four, Experimental,” he writes. Ok, so Argos might be joking when implying his art rock band is more classic than it really is, but his assesment of the band’s albums is fairly spot-on. The first disc of “Top of the Pops” celebrates some of Art Brut’s best songs from its four albums. The songs on this one are sequenced in the order they were first released. Considering Art Brut’s earlier stuff on “Bang Bang Rock & Roll” and “It’s A Bit Complicated” is some of its best, this album loses some of its punch near its end. The first disc closes with two new tracks, “Arizona Bay” and “We Make Pop Music.” Both are better than some of the greatest hits the band chose from their later albums. The second disc is a B-sides and rarities collection. Some of the alternate versions of songs sound too similar to their original counterparts to merit being released. At the very least, the two-disc set would be worth adding to your collection if you’re absolutley in love with the band, but it’s not quite a must-have for the casual fan.
