Cultural arts a way to experience world Renowned choreographer Twyla Tharp once said, “Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.” Personally, I think she’s spot on. Growing up in Geneva, music and dance classes allowed me to experience new cultures and ideas outside of our small town. While big theaters, galleries and museums are only a Metra ride away, it can be tough to find new ways to experience art nearby. But the cultural arts are a powerful tool in opening up our world, and having cultural arts in Geneva fosters a multitude of benefits. Enhanced community: The basis of art is communication. Performers and artists must communicate their ideas with an audience, and communication behind the scenes is equally essential. Backstage, cast and crew build friendships, while conversations between strangers are often sparked in the theater

PARK PERSPECTIVES Natalie Seidel lobby. The benefits of cultural arts also extend into the community itself. According to a study conducted by the National Endowment for the Arts, “Americans who read books, visit museums, attend theater and engage in other arts are more active in community life than those who do not.” Increased creativity: Most academic subjects and sports are based on facts (answers are true or false and games are won or lost), but cultural arts offer a more open, subjective approach. Kids who participate in the arts learn there is more than one way to perform a monologue or sing a song, which fosters individuality, creativity and imagination. With no wrong or right answers, children

feel less pressure to be exactly like their peers and are more likely to take risks. Because the arts celebrate this individuality, they encourage innovation, self-expression and confidence. Educational value: Cultural arts programs can improve memory, concentration, decision-making and critical thinking skills. For children, diligently rehearsing scenes, practicing chords and picking up choreography develop a positive work ethic. A 2006 study by the Guggenheim Museum suggests that the arts can also improve literary skills, particularly among children who are just beginning to read. According to Americans for the Arts, young people who participate in the arts for at least nine hours each week for at least one full year are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement. With all these benefits

in mind, the Geneva Park District is proud to introduce new cultural arts programs at Playhouse 38, a small, intimate basement theater, and the perfect spot for performers and audience members to “run away without ever leaving home.” Playhouse 38 is in the heart of Geneva at 524 W. State St. New summer programs include a six-week production drama camp, an audition workshop with personal coaching and other performing arts classes for youth. This fall, expect several new additions, including adult classes, improv comedy, singing, acting and more for all ages. For information, call 630-232-4542 or visit us online at www.genevaparks.org.

Batavia City Council combines four-committee system into one By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – The Batavia City Council’s four standing committees will start meeting as a joint committee in part to help the six newly elected aldermen get up to speed on issues facing the city. Aldermen discussed the issue at Monday’s first joint committee meeting. The four

committees – Public Utilities, Community Development, Government Services and City Services – will continue to be chaired by one of the aldermen. Several aldermen voiced concerns about switching to a joint committee system. First Ward Alderman Garran Sparks was worried the new system would cut down on discussion of issues.

“I’m afraid things will get pushed through,” Sparks said. “There won’t be enough discussion because of the time constraints.” The Batavia City Council will continue to meet on the first and third Monday of every month, and the joint committee will meet four times a month on Tuesdays. Batavia Mayor Jeff Schielke had proposed changing the City Coun-

cil’s committee structure to help the newly elected aldermen get educated on a variety of issues. First Ward Alderman Michael O’Brien also voiced concerns. “We don’t discuss things enough,” he said. “I think the committee system we have now has been working.” But 5th Ward Alderman Lucy Thelin Atac was in sup-

port of joint committee meetings. “I think all of us will be on the ground floor for each discussion,” she said. In addressing concerns from some aldermen about meetings going too long, Schielke said a meeting always could be continued if need be. “We will review the process kind of as it unfolds,” Schielke said.

KANE COUNTY

Kramer seeks Kane sheriff post again By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Retired Kane County Lt. Donald Kramer announced Tuesday that he will make another bid for Kane County sheriff in 2014. Kramer stood in front of the war memorial on the steps of the old Kane County Courthouse on Third Street in Geneva, surrounded by family, friends and supporters, as he made his announcement. “I am officially running for the office of sheriff of Kane County,” Kramer said. “I look forward to your support in the 2014 campaign.”

Kramer, of Geneva, introduced his father, George Kramer, who was sheriff from 1978 to 1986. K r a m e r credited his father with influencing him to want to serve as sheriff. “My father hired me as a Donald deputy short- Kramer ly after he became sheriff,” Kramer said. “And he taught me much of what I know as a police officer. I am seeking this office because I care about people, and I want to try to help others reach their potential.”

Kramer retired from the sheriff’s office in June 2009 after 30 years to seek the office of sheriff. Kramer won the 2010 Republican primary against Rob Russell, but he lost to current Sheriff Pat Perez, who was re-elected. Russell, who was elected coroner in 2012, attended Kramer’s announcement as a supporter. Kramer’s platform is crime prevention, improved communications with the public and issues affecting youth. “The key to crime prevention is building a trusting relationship with the pub-

Video gambling lawsuit filed against American Legion post By NICOLE WESKERNA SUGAR GROVE – Four months after the village of Sugar Grove legalized video gambling, one of the first establishments to obtain a gaming license is being sued over gaming terminal rights. Gaming & Entertainment Management, LLC, and Illinois Gaming Investments filed a lawsuit last week against the Sugar Grove American Legion Post 1271 seeking exclusive rights to operate gaming terminals at the legion. The lawsuit alleges that Sugar Grove American Legion Post 1271 entered into an “exclusive location agreement” in April 2010 with a company called Twin Oaks Music, giving that company sole rights to operate gaming terminals at that location. The lawsuit states that in October 2010, Twin Oaks Music turned its exclusive location agreement with Sugar Grove American Legion Post 1271, and 30 other establishments, over to Illinois Gaming Investments,

Kramer also pledged his support for programs that encourage healthy choices by the county’s youth, addressing alcohol, drugs, bullying and hate crimes. Dennis Harper, a parttime officer with the Campton Hills Police Department, gave his endorsement to Kramer for sheriff. Harper worked with Kramer for five years as a sheriff’s deputy and praised his leadership. “I have known Don Kramer since high school. He has been a leader ever since we both played football for Batavia Bulldogs,” Harper said. “Don has prepared himself to be sheriff his whole life.”

lic,” Kramer said, quoting Sir Robert Peel, the founder of the Metropolitan Police Force in 1829 in London. “ ‘The police are the people and the people are the police,’ ” Kramer said, quoting Peel. “The most effective crime prevention tool the police have is the public.” Toward that end, Kramer said he wants to create teams for each of six patrolling sections so people can be familiar with officers patrolling their area, Kramer said. “The officers will get to know residents by attending neighborhood watch meetings and homeowner association meetings,” Kramer said.

which then sold and assigned its agreements to Gaming & Entertainment Management in July. “Post 1271 filed documents with the [Illinois Gaming Board] ... indicating that it is seeking to obtain [virtual gaming terminals] from a terminal operator other than [Gaming & Entertainment Management],” the suit states. Messages left for Sugar Grove American Legion Post 1271 members were not immediately returned Tuesday. Douglas Ramsey, attorney for Gaming & Entertainment Management, could not be reached for comment.

Sugar Grove American Legion Post 1271 has had its video gaming license since March 20. After initially voting to outlaw video gambling, Sugar Grove officials legalized video gambling in January of this year, and voters approved of legalizing video gambling in April through a nonbinding advisory referendum. According to the Illinois Gaming Board, the Sugar Grove American Legion’s three video gaming terminals netted nearly $7,000 in the month of April. A court date has been set for Aug. 22.

Awards honor students overcoming obstacles By NICOLE WESKERNA nweskerna@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – Matt Drummond, a senior at St. Charles North High School, has limited use of his right arm, but he still managed to teach himself numerous musical instruments and play sports. Laura Gonzales, a senior at Geneva High School, learned three languages despite having hearing loss. U-Conjay Nelson, a senior at Mooseheart Child City & School near Batavia, endured a childhood of periodic homelessness. They were three of 10 graduating seniors at local schools who were recognized

Tuesday for overcoming significant obstacles in their lives. The Exchange Club of the Tri-Cities hosted its 18th annual Accepting the Challenge of Excellence Awards ceremony at Andres Restaurant in Batavia, giving $200 and a plaque to students who have persisted on a difficult path toward graduation. Club member Tom Dearing, who has helped organize the awards event for the last eight years, said the A.C.E. Awards recognize students who otherwise might not be recognized.

Kane board OKs hiring rule changes Geneva partners with AID By JONATHAN BILYK jbilyk@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Kane County’s government has rewritten its hiring rules, granting those overseeing the county’s various departments more latitude to hire replacements or in emergencies. But some on the County Board believe the discussion on the county’s hiring freeze should continue, specifically to address whether the County Board chairman should have the ability to hire temporary workers by contract. “There is a gaping loophole here, if you can create new positions simply by calling them ‘temporary,’” said County Board member Mike Donahue, R-Geneva. “This isn’t a hiring Slushee we have; it’s a hiring freeze.” The Kane County Board on Tuesday approved a series of changes to the county’s ordi-

nance governing the county’s 5-year-old hiring freeze. Previously, the rules had required all county departments to submit any requested hires for review by the County Board. The rules had been put in place to grant greater budget oversight to the County Board during difficult economic times. However, board members opted to rewrite the ordinance, giving county department heads the power to hire, without formal board approval, to fill vacancies in pre-existing positions at the same salary or less. Department heads also would be empowered to make “emergency” hires at their discretion, subject to a review within 45 days of the hire. Those rewritten rules passed by a 16-5 vote Tuesday.

sions did not go far enough. Donahue said it did nothing to address the question of whether county government officials can skirt the freeze by hiring “temporary” employees. He noted discussion over the hiring rules was sparked following Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen’s decision to hire without board approval a temporary billing manager for the county’s Animal Control department. And Donahue pointed to Lauzen’s search to hire a temporary “community outreach coordinator” to coordinate promotion of various county initiatives. Lauzen defended his hiring decisions, noting that the billing manager has helped restore revenue at Animal Control to viable levels.

By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Geneva will enter into a one-year contract with an agency that will provide crime victim services. Aldermen, acting as the Committee of the Whole this week, voted unanimously to recommend contracting the services of Association for Individual Development Victims Services. Once the city council takes final action, the yearlong contract will begin June 1 and end May 31, 2014, at a cost of $7,500. The contract calls for a representative to be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Chief Steve Mexin asked for the contract with AID, saying the police always have tried to provide the best possi-

ble service. “But we often find we are limited in our ability to address the root causes when we respond to an incident,” Mexin said. “Within the past year, we have 220 domestic-related incidents. Those kinds of calls can turn very bad.” Mexin said social service agencies are better trained to help in these instances, such as Tri-City Family Services, Mutual Ground and Ecker Center for Mental Health. But people in need of these services often need more than just a referral. “When an officer goes there, he or she can make those referrals, but it’s not their place to come back the next day and check up on these individuals,” said Joanne Furnas of AID Victim Services.

Joseph (1911-1984) and Lora (1909-2005) Oberweis continue to serve local non-profit organizations through their charitable fund within the Community Foundation. Endowments are forever.

Make summer a curious one for kids The research is clear. Children who are curious and explore the world around them fare better at school and relationships, and – ultimately – are more successful in life. Yet, as children go through life, it’s easy for their curiosity to be stunted. A regimented school day, schedules, tests and grades all have a way of limiting a child’s natural curiosity. Of course, we all want our children to be successful in life. So, how can you keep their curiosity alive? First, it’s important to help your children discover activities that are meaningful to them. Expose them to as many experiences as possible. Make note of those things that inspire novelty and excitement. Second, select recreation that gives children a sense of competence and accomplishment. We all have a fundamental need to feel competent. When

children can complete a task and feel competent, it increases the likelihood they will want to continue learning and exploring in the future. Third, give children some autonomy in their activities. Find activities that allow them to make decisions and choose between alternatives. At the most basic level, it’s important to engage your children in projects that require active learning. With active learning, children learn by doing – they manipulate, move, listen, taste, build, take apart and create. Research shows that active learning promotes much better recall, enjoyment and understanding. Active learning allows children autonomy and provides a sense of accomplishment – the keys to fostering their curiosity. Summer is an ideal time to engage your children in active learning activities. Now in its fourth year, the Xcelerate summer enrich-

GRADUATION 2013: This is day two in a five-day series celebrating our local graduating seniors.

Kaneland’s Messina finds calling By AL LAGATTOLLA alagattolla@shawmedia.com

By AL LAGATTOLLA alagattolla@shawmedia.com ELBURN – As the youngest child in a musical family, Katie Kenkel said she always has been inspired to sing. Her days are filled with music, and three of her class periods at Kaneland High School involve choir, including those she directs and those in which she is a member. But an opportunity to work with students in an adaptive physical education class revealed another passion. She had an opportunity to work with those with developmental disabilities, and Kenkel called that experience “absolutely amazing.” “I expected that I would like it, but I just fell in love with those kids,” Kenkel said. “They would all be so excited to see everyone.

They would melt my heart.” The Kane County Chronicle this week is highlighting local high school seniors as graduation season nears. The Kaneland High School graduation is set for 10 a.m. June 1 at the Northern Illinois University Convocation Center in DeKalb. Kenkel is headed to Xavier University in Cincinnati, where she will study music, and she is well-trained to travel that path. She said she has been in choirs since sixth grade, and her mother, Christina, said she could tell that Katie had such talent since she was in preschool. Her mother said young Katie could be heard singing along to the music in the car. She is the youngest of four children, and all have been involved in music, not surprising considering their parents met while they were involved in the group, Up

With People. Katie Kenkel has embraced opportunities at Kaneland. She has been in two theatrical performances. She has experience directing two choirs – a freshman treble choir in her first semester of her senior year, and a freshman/sophomore choir she currently directs. She joined the Kaneland Madrigals as a sophomore, something she said was an “amazing honor.” She has performed in all-state choir. Also, she sings with her mother at their church – St. John Neumann Church in St. Charles. “I have known that I wanted to sing my whole life,” Katie Kenkel said. “She has a gift,” Christina Kenkel said. That she also found she has a skill for working with those with developmental

disabilities is something that Katie could pursue someday. She helped coordinate activities, and has enjoyed getting to know those in the program. Christina Kenkel, a teacher at St. Charles North High School, said that could be an opportunity down the road. Her parents were able to attend an event to see Katie at work in that environment at a Thanksgiving dinner. “It was neat for me to see it firsthand. ... It was so evident that she had a really strong love for these kids and a sincere friendship,” Christina Kenkel said. “They’re part of her Kaneland family.” But for now, Katie probably will have to focus on the music. “Maybe she can have it all,” Christina Kenkel said. “But maybe just not at the same time.”

I expected that I would like it, but I just fell in love with those kids. ... They would melt my heart.” – Katie Kenkel, Kaneland senior on working with students with developmental disabilities

• Wednesday, May 15, 2013

Sandy Bressner – sbressner@shawmedia.com

Kaneland High School senior Katie Kenkel of Elburn hopes to be a high school choral director someday. Kenkel will attend Xavier University in Ohio in the fall.

SUGAR GROVE – Kaneland High School senior Nick Messina said a passion for video games led him to take a class that changed his life. Messina, a Sugar Grove resident, was in his junior year, looking over course offerings at the Fox Valley Career Center near Kaneland, which offers programs for those looking to acquire technical skills. One class stood out, and taking Nick Messina a class that involved video games sounded fun. It was much more than that. He was intrigued by the world of computer science, specifically Web development. After only a few days, he came home and said, “Mom, this is what I want to do.” “I fell in love with coding the first time I sat down,” Messina said. It was just the beginning. Messina has earned accolades for his work, finishing second in a state competition while teamed with St. Charles East senior Sean Nozicka. Also, the Fox Valley Career Center earned a Google RISE Award, and Messina was part of a group that traveled to Missouri to support technology efforts in an area hit hard by storms in recent years. “It was so rewarding,” Messina said of the trip to Missouri. “They didn’t have a lot of technology there … they had an outdated system.” Messina, who is heading to Waubonsee Community College, embraced his experience at the Fox Valley Career Center so much that he was named the center’s 2013 student of the year. A $500 scholarship toward college was part of the award.

GRADUATION 2013: This is day two in a five-day series celebrating our local graduating seniors.

Augmenting strength By JONATHAN BILYK jbilyk@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Max Meyer isn’t obsessed with superheroes. But since seeing the first Iron Man film five years ago, Meyer, a budding engineer, has remained fascinated with one particular aspect of the Iron Man story: The ability of the hero to augment his own physical strength with technology. “I saw his suit, and I said, ‘I like that; that’s cool!’ ” Meyer said. “But then I thought, ‘Why can’t normal people have something like that?’ ” In the years since, Meyer, 18, of Geneva, and a graduating senior at Marmion Academy in Aurora, has not allowed those thoughts to just be idle daydreams. Beginning with a handdrawn sketch on paper, and progressing to ever more advanced drawings and models, Meyer has worked to bring his vision of a pneumatic

human exoskeleton to life. The idea is based around the power of air. Human limbs could be fitted with an external chassis, such as a metal brace, equipped with attached tubing and sleeves. The tubing and sleeve assembly would then be filled with compressed air, which would be triggered by movement of Max Meyer the limb. As the air moves in and out of the sleeves in harmony with the limb’s movement, much like mechanical muscles, it would increase the strength of the limb. “It’s not a bionic suit,” Meyer said. “It’s a body amplification exoskeleton.” Ultimately, Meyer said he envisions a complete body suit powered by something akin to a scuba tank. Meyer can quickly rattle

off a list of possible uses for the device, including: helping those with damaged limbs regain quality of life; preventing damage to backs and joints of those lifting heavy objects; and increasing the abilities of soldiers in the field. “They could wear heavy armor, carry all their gear and bring back the wounded,” Meyer said. “They could be one-man rescue units.” Those who know Meyer are not surprised by his passion. His mother and father, Debby and Dave Meyer, of Geneva, said their son long has sought to augment the world around him, whether salvaging parts from a broken trike to create new toys or building his own computer or tinkering with his off-road motorcycle. Meyer credits his father with instilling a love of engineering and science and mechanical knowledge. One of Meyer’s teachers,

Victor Pinks II, who has taught physics and computational science at Marmion for 13 years, said Meyer is “one of the most inquisitive minds” he’s met. “He never stops asking questions, and he’s not afraid to learn or try anything,” Pinks said. During his high school career, Meyer also has played football and lacrosse, and helped lead the school’s drill team.

Meyer will attend Eastern Illinois University, and has plans to transfer to the University of Texas. He has enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. But Meyer said he intends to continue developing his invention while in college, as well as other ideas. “I could never be a lawyer or a businessman,” Meyer said. “I need to be out in the field, with a project, hands-on, doing stuff.”

ST. CHARLES – Aldermen this week gave city staff the OK to proceed with an incentive agreement for a motorcycle dealership eyeing space near the Fox River Harley-Davidson building on Randall Road. Economic Development Director Chris Aiston presented the information to the Planning and Development Committee on Monday. Windy City Triumph would occupy about 5,000 square feet in the southerly portion of the Harley-Davidson building at 131 S. Randall Road in St. Charles. The estimated cost for Windy City Triumph to build out and occupy the space is $70,000, Aiston said. Under the incentive agreement, Aiston said, the city would reimburse the dealership one half of the municipal sales taxes generated from the store for up to five years or until the total reimbursement reaches $70,000, whichever comes first. Windy City Triumph is

projected to do about $18.5 million in sales in the first five years, Aiston said. Sales would include new and used motorcycles, parts and accessories and general merchandise and motorcycle services. The dealership would have to repay St. Charles for all disbursed reimbursement monies if it doesn’t do business in the city for at least 10 years. Aiston noted the underused building was once the focus of a recreational vehicle dealership, which was unable to negotiate a lease. The city is suggesting other potential locations to US Adventure RV, he said. The Iowa-based RV company asked for a tax break in January. The Planning and Development Committee also recommended approval of that deal, which called for the city reimbursing a portion of sales tax revenues not to exceed $250,000 or for a period of six years, whichever came first. The store was estimated to generate about $45 million in total sales within five years.

FVCC students work with seniors By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com After working with seniors at The Holmstad retirement community in Batavia, Batavia High School senior Jamie Rymut is even more determined to go into the medical field. Rymut is enrolled in the exploring medical careers course at the Fox Valley Career Center, which is based at the Kaneland High School campus and open to area high school students. For the past month, Rymut and her fellow students have partnered with residents of the Park Manor building at The Holmstad to put together their life stories. She said the experience taught her that many qualities are needed as a health care worker, including patience. “It takes a special person to be involved in health care,” Rymut said. “It really showed me that things can be difficult, but the reward is so much worth it.” The course also provides college credit in medical terminology. Rymut will be going to the University of Illinois at

“It really showed me that things can be difficult, but the reward is so much worth it.” Jamie Rymut Batavia High School senior

Urbana-Champaign after she graduates and plans to study biology, with the eventual goal of becoming a physician assistant. The students also worked with senior citizens at The Holmstad on an international project. They worked together to tear strips of sheets to be rolled and sewn and sent to health care teams in the Congo. Dana Alterie, health occupations instructor at Fox Valley Career Center, said such experiences provide students with valuable knowledge. “We’re an aging population,” she said. “It gives them communication skills and how to interact between different generations. These are skills they can take with them as they go off to college.”

Batavia officials look to ban new tattoo parlors from downtown By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – New tattoo parlors would not be able to open in the city’s downtown if aldermen next week approve changes to Batavia’s zoning code. Aldermen at a joint committee meeting Monday unanimously recommended removing tattoo parlors and piercing studios from the list of uses allowed in the downtown mixeduse district. The full City Council will vote on the issue at its meeting Monday. The change would not affect the two tattoo parlors currently in the downtown, which would be grandfathered as a noncomforming use. Fallen Star Tattoo is located on South Batavia Avenue, and Twizted Images recently moved from

South Washington Street to East Wilson Street. Batavia Mayor Jeff Schielke said he was in favor of not permitting new tattoo parlors in the downtown. “We need to have a fairly tight control over things like that,” Schielke said. The city’s zoning code would continue to permit tattoo parlors elsewhere in the city, in both the community commercial and mixed-use zoning districts. Tattoo parlors are defined as those that apply permanent tattoos and not cosmetic tattoos. The Batavia Plan Commission previously voted, 5-1, to recommend removing tattoo parlors and piercing studios from the list of uses allowed in the downtown mixed-use district.

Police expect to crack down on seat belts for Memorial Day KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE editorial@kcchronicle.com CAMPTON HILLS – The Campton Hills Police Department is joining the Illinois Department of Transportation, Illinois State Police and more than 500 law enforcement agencies statewide by strongly enforcing seat-belt laws this Memorial Day season, according to a Campton Hills Police Department news release. “As we kick off the busy summer driving season it’s important for everyone to buckle up every trip, every time, day or night – no excuses,” Chief Dan Hoffman said in the release. “Our officers are prepared to ticket anyone who is not wearing a seat belt.”

There were six fatalities and nearly 600 injuries on Illinois roads last Memorial Day weekend, and three of the fatalities were alcohol-related, according to the release. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 52 percent of the 21,253 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2011 were not wearing their seat belts. Deaths involving seat belt non-use are more prevalent at night than during the daytime. According to NHTSA, 62 percent of the 10,135 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2011 during the overnight hours of 6 p.m. to 5:59 a.m. were not wearing their seat belts.

CAMPTON HILLS – Eight households were victimized in a rash of car burglaries this month, according to Campton Hills Police Department reports. The burglaries reportedly happened overnight – usually between a Friday and Saturday but in some cases between a Wednesday and Thursday. All involved unlocked vehicles, according to the reports. The first happened between May 1 and May 2 in the 41W700 block of Griffin Lane, the 4N600 block of West Woods Drive and the 4N800 block of West Woods Drive, all in Campton Hills.

Items reported stolen from the various cars were a $5 bill, a $10 bill, loose change, a garage door opener and $60 in

currency. A 2007 Cadillac Escalade was reported burglarized between May 3 and May 4 in the 41W100 block of Hearthstone Court. A folding buck knife valued at $15 was reported stolen. A week later, police received reports of four more burglarized vehicles at a residence in the 7N100 block of Weybridge Drive, at two residences in the 6N900 block of Hastings Drive and at a home in the 6N400 block of Brookhaven Drive, all in Campton Hills. Stolen items included a fixed blade Smith & Wesson knife valued at $40, three navigation systems valued between $125 and $200, two pairs of sunglasses valued at $180 and $200, a pair of $200 binoculars, a $200 backpack, a $200 iPod, a $40 iPhone charger, a pair of $50 hunting glasses and $30 cash.

OPINIONS LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The U.S. is in a mess To the Editor: The letter to the editor about the George Stephanopoulos and Obama interview on ABC News (Kane County Chronicle, April 27, 2013) explains once again that the president can’t cope realistically with the mess the U.S. is in, as far as our ability to be a skillfully run country is concerned. When he tells ABC News that we don’t have an immediate crisis in terms of debt for the next 10 years, he is negligent about facing up to the magnitude of the federal debt. As the recent letter to the editor points out, the U.S. has a debt of $17 trillion, more than 100 percent of our annual gross domestic product, and – each month – the Federal Reserve is pumping $85 billion into the U.S. economy. This money has to be borrowed from someone, and the U.S. government can’t just borrow from itself. We could always counterfeit money, but that is illegal. When we have slow growth; high unemployment; discouraged, poorly trained workers; too many people on welfare; and too much war exposure, we have a serious situation. I don’t think Obama is equal to the task of turning things around. Chuck Barr St. Charles

ANOTHER VIEW

Canadian government sells out science By PHIL PLAIT Slate BOULDER, Colo. – Over the past few years, the Canadian government has been lurching into anti-science territory. For example, it’s been muzzling scientists, essentially censoring them from talking about their research. Scientists have fought back against this, though – from what I read – with limited success. But a new development makes the situation appear to be far worse. In a stunning announcement, the National Research Council – the Canadian scientific research and development agency – has now said that it will only per-

form research that has “social or economic gain.” John MacDougal, president of the NRC, said, “Scientific discovery is not valuable unless it has commercial value.” Gary Goodyear, the Canadian minister of state for science and technology, also stated: “There is [sic] only two reasons why we do science and technology. First is to create knowledge ... second is to use that knowledge for social and economic benefit. Unfortunately, all too often the knowledge gained is opportunity lost.” I had to read the Toronto Sun article two or three times to make sure I wasn’t missing something because I was

thinking that no one could possibly utter such colossally ignorant statements. These two men – leaders in the Canadian scientific research community – were saying, out loud and clearly, that the only science worth doing is what lines the pocket of business. This is monumentally backward thinking. That is not the reason we do science. Economic benefits are results of doing research, but should not be the reasons we do it. Basic scientific research is a vast endeavor, and some of it will pay off economically and some won’t. In almost every case, you cannot know in advance which will do which. In his statement above,

Editorial board J. Tom Shaw, publisher Jay Schwab

Goodyear did throw in a mention of social benefit, and I’ll agree that does motivate many scientists – making life better for people is a strong incentive – but again, you cannot always know what research will do that and what won’t. And that’s OK, because it’s not like the money is wasted when invested in science. For one thing, the amount of money we’re talking about here is tiny compared to a national budget. For another, investment in science always pays off at a very high rate. If you want to boost your economy in the middle and long run, one of the best ways to do it is invest in science.

But the Canadian government is doing the precise opposite. If proposed and immediate economic benefits are the prime factors in choosing what science to fund, then the freedom of this human endeavor will be critically curtailed. It’s draining the passion and heart out of one of the best things we humans do. By doing this, the Canadian government and the NRC have literally sold out science.

ST. CHARLES NORTH 5, ST. CHARLES EAST 3

Seventh inning good to North Stars By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com

• Wednesday, May 15, 2013

ST. CHARLES – A nonconference doubleheader heavily impacted St. Charles North’s run to the Upstate Eight Conference River Division softball title. Naturally, the games did not count in the standings, but the lesson of the last out still resonates for the North Stars. Three days removed from sending previously unbeaten Naperville Central to its first loss with a stunning seventh-inning rally Tuesday, North turned a similar trick against host St. Charles East. Abby Howlett’s two-run, two-out, two-strike single provided the go-ahead runs in a four-run seventh. Sabrina Rabin’s 1-2-3 inning in the bottom half preserved a 5-3 win that left the team feeling a lot like it did Saturday. “It really taught us that the game’s not over until they tell you to line it up, and anything can happen in the last inning,” Howlett said. “You have to play it all the way through.” North (19-5, 15-2 UEC River) was on the verge of bowing to the Saints’ Haley Beno eight days after earning a 10-0, run-rule victory against East (25-5, 14-4). For the first six innings, Beno kept the North Stars off balance by mixing pitches. She allowed only Emily Brodner’s run-scoring sacrifice fly in the first inning and caught three of her six strikeout victims looking. Once the seventh rolled around, North wasn’t about to keep quiet. Bringing the same hardened glare she showed in the batting cage moments earlier, freshman pinch-hitter Samantha Hausl opened the inning with a single. She

The North Stars might not have had the lead yet, but players said they sensed a shift from the time Hausl and center fielder Andrea Beal reached base to start the inning. The team trailed Naperville Central, 4-3, with two outs and the bases empty before it struck. At least this time they had a head start against Beno, a right-hander they were familiar with.

“She’s a very good pitcher, and she has a lot of different pitches. It was mostly the same as last game,” North second baseman Kaitlyn Waslawski said. “Mostly, we hit her pretty good. She’s a talented pitcher, and it was a good game overall.” Howlett, who patiently fouled off a series of Beno risers and outside fastballs, smacked a sharp grounder that Saints shortstop Lexi Perez nearly gloved.

Zick’s state berth helped ease her pain PREP ZONE Jay Schwab Lauren Zick can deal with the pain that comes with a grueling track and field workout. What the Kaneland junior had to endure last week was another matter. Zick, one of the area’s premier girls track athletes, was on a school field trip May 6 when she started feeling excruciating pain that originally was thought to be appendicitis. “This was just a constant pain I was going through for hours,” Zick said. “It started on Monday when I was at school, so I went through the entire school day and all night with it and I didn’t go to the doctor until Tuesday, so I went through 12 hours with just constant [pain]. It felt like I was being stabbed continuously, honestly.” A visit to Rush-Copley Medical Center in Aurora the next day revealed that Zick’s suffering was because of a burst cyst in her lower abdomen. On one hand, Zick was greatly relieved because that meant no surgery was needed, preserving the climax of the track and field season. But, with only a few days before Friday’s sectional in Burlington, there was no quick fix for the pain. Besides taking relatively mild pain-relievers such as Tylenol or Advil and following doctors’ diet suggestions,

Kaneland’s Lauren Zick competes in the long jump during the Kane County girls track meet April 26 at Geneva High School. there was little Zick could do other than wait for the discomfort to gradually subside. Nonetheless, the Sugar Grove resident made a swift decision that she would participate in Friday’s sectional, in hopes of securing her third IHSA girls track and field state meet berth in as many years. “I said I would because I knew I wouldn’t be as sick by Friday, so I figured I might as well give it a chance because if I didn’t, I knew I

wouldn’t ever forgive myself,” Zick said. She returned to school Thursday and, the next day, persevered through a difficult sectional meet while far from full strength. She had enough in her tank to qualify for this weekend’s state meet in the long jump and 4x400-meter relay. Zick also competed in the 4x100 relay but pulled herself out of her individual 400 as she felt stamina fuel diminishing.

Regaining that strength is the focus of her week leading up to Friday’s Class 2A state preliminaries at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston. She’s eating as much fruit and protein as she can tolerate in hopes of feeling like herself this weekend. Zick projects to be one of the top contenders in the long jump, in which she leapt a personal best 18 feet, 2 inches during a home triangular this season. In Friday’s sectional, she jumped 16-6½. “This entire year, I’ve been jumping really well when I was healthy,” Zick said. “If I can jump near to where I have been, I feel I should be able to do really well.” Although the past weekplus hasn’t been much fun overall, Zick said she still is enjoying the most exciting slice of the track season, and credited her team for helping keep her spirits up. “They’ve all been great,” Zick said. “Every day I’ve had teammates texting me or coming up to me at school asking me how I’ve been feeling. The coaches have been keeping really close tabs on me, asking about my health, how I’ve been eating, how my strength has been. They’ve really been great, taking really good care of me through all of this.” The worst is over for Zick, who hopes her best is yet to come this weekend. • Jay Schwab is the sports editor for the Kane County Chronicle.

North’s second win against East gives team River title • SOFTBALL Continued from page 17 An outfield error scored North’s Mickey Goetz and accounted for the final margin. With Beno hitting spots and the East attack delivering clutch hits, the Saints built a snug lead. Designated player Sarah Collalti – making her first start since recovering from a concussion – scored Kate Peterburs (two hits) with

a double to tie the game in the fourth. Olivia Cheatham followed with an RBI double that gave East the lead, which it padded with Cheatham’s run-scoring sac fly in the sixth. Saints coach Kelly Horan thought Beno deserved better run support, as East stranded six runners. “We know exactly what we need to do a little bit better to get geared up for the postseason,” said Horan, whose team

is the top seed in its own 4A sectional, two slots ahead of North. “That’s why we’ve got two great opponents [DeKalb and Wheaton Warrenville South] coming in the next two days, to get the wheels back on. Sure, we’re disappointed, but like I said, it’s only the fifth loss. Who cares? OK, maybe ‘Who cares’ is a bit of an exaggeration, but it is only the fifth loss.” North coach Tom Poulin, who joked the team won in

spite of him after a botched sacrifice call in the seventh, tabbed Tuesday’s meeting with East “a much more beneficial game” than last week’s. “You wouldn’t expect anything else between these two teams,” he said. “You would expect something coming down to the last at-bat.” No matter who they’re facing, the North Stars know something about that lately. They also know they’re prepared to respond.

Geneva, East spare the suspense By JAY SCHWAB jschwab@shawmedia.com

Tuesday’s semifinals St. Charles East 12, Larkin 0 Geneva 5, Bartlett 0 Saturday’s championship St. Charles East vs. Geneva, 1 p.m. game,” Landry said. Landry’s emergence as a secondary scoring threat to complement Iowa-bound senior Amanda Lulek also has been helpful. Lulek and Landry both had two goals against the Hawks, with senior Molly Axen also scoring for the Vikings. “She’s a little more confident,” Geneva coach Megan Owens said of Landry’s late-season increase in productivity. “Being a first-year varsity player, I think there’s always a transition period, but she’s been very solid for us all season long, very aggressive with her head, and she’s just getting into her comfort zone, and it shows. “She’s really helped add to our offense over the past two weeks. All gears are firing for our offense.” Lulek scored the first goal less than two minutes in, heading in the rebound of her own point-blank shot on goal. Bartlett (8-14) was in the unenviable position of starting a new goalkeeper for the first time as the Hawks’ regular starter was unavailable. Freshman Tessa Jetczak

gained steam as the match went on, making several sharp saves in the second half, but by then the Hawks were buried. “We came out a little slower than we should have,” Bartlett coach Heather Thomas said. “Having a new keeper on the field, that’s such a key position to have being a new face. I think it took her a couple minutes to get adjusted and what-not, and us a while to get adjusted to her. They came out and caught us a little off-guard, I think.” Vikings goalkeeper Sam Hauser made six saves to notch the shutout. “We’re playing really well,” Owens said. “We’ve had a nice run and we’re just looking to continue that on.” East (14-5-2) had no trouble with hapless Larkin in a match that Saints coach Paul Jennison simply described as “a job to get done today.” Carly Pottle (four goals) and Darcy Cunningham (three goals) powered the Saints. Saturday’s regional final against the rival Vikings should come with considerably more drama, despite East’s two wins against Geneva in early April. “The past two games are irrelevant,” Jennison said. “It’s the postseason. Geneva’s a quality team. They’ve been putting the ball in the back of the net. I think they’ve found a new lease on life.” On Tuesday, both East and Geneva sucked the life out of their opponents in a hurry.

This spring, she’s primed to win more. Shead enters this week’s preliminaries at Eastern Illinois’ O’Brien Stadium in Charleston as a triple-qualifier after a standout sectional performance earned her a nod as the St. Charles Bank & Trust-Kane County Chronicle Athlete of the Week. Chronicle sports reporter Kevin Druley caught up with Shead about her night. The following is an edited transcript: How did you like the team’s response to the rough weather at sectionals? I think we all responded well. We’re very tough and we just knew we had to go out there, run our best and try our best to

ignore it. What’s the feeling surrounding the team heading into state? I think everything is really coming together and evertyhing is really working out for us, and we all seem to be doing well now and healthy, so that’s good. You and several teammates know your way around Eastern. What does your experience bring? It helps a lot to calm the nerves and just knowing what to expect. And also it’s a lot of motivation, too, knowing how it could be if you do really well down there. ... I’ve told [teammates] just to run with your heart and don’t forget to have fun, because it’s just an amazing experience.

STREAMWOOD – After crushing Larkin in Tuesday’s first IHSA Class 3A Bartlett Regional semifinal, the St. Charles East girls soccer team stuck around for only a little more than 10 minutes of Geneva’s semifinal against Bartlett. By then, the Vikings were already leading by three goals en route to a 5-0 victory against Bartlett that seemed like a barn-burner in comparison to the Saints’ 12-0 win against the Royals. It wasn’t much of a day for suspense at Millennium Field but more could be in store Saturday when the Vikings and Saints play for the third time this season, this time in the regional championship match. “We always come out not as well as we want to, and then we get it back in the second half, but today we really got to it and played to our full potential right away,” Geneva sophomore forward Mary Landry said. Surging Geneva (13-8-1) has outscored opponents, 360, during its last seven matches. The Vikings’ schedule has softened somewhat during that span but there’s also little question Geneva is playing its best soccer of the season. “We’re learning just to pass the ball, to get it to our feet, work together, calm it down and just play our

CLASS 3A LAKE PARK GIRLS SOCCER REGIONAL: BATAVIA 4, HOFFMAN ESTATES 0

’Dogs’ flips baffle Hoffman Estates By DENNIS D. JACOBS editorial@kcchronicle.com ROSELLE – The Batavia girls soccer team flipped out in a victory over Hoffman Estates in an IHSA Class 3A regional semifinal Tuesday at Lake Park. The Bulldogs scored a pair of goals on flip throw-ins on their way to a 4-0 victory over the Hawks. A flip throw-in by junior midfielder Brittany Wahlen led to a goal by sophomore Olivia Callipari early in the second half. “We’ve been practicing my flip throws,” Wahlen said. “I’ve been doing them since I was really little. I just threw it and Olivia Callipari was right there and she had a great shot to the corner.” Wahlen said a background in gymnastics helped her learn the flip throw-in when she was about 10 years old. “For me, it’s not very difficult,” Wahlen said. “When I first tried it, I fell a few times. After that, I pretty much just got it every time.” On a flip throw, a player uses the ball like a springboard after a running start and then becomes a sort of human trebuchet to fling the ball toward the goal as both feet return to the ground. “Brittany, when she’s warmed up – when she’s done it a couple times and limber after a few throws, she can probably get it to the mouth of the goal on this field, which is probably 68, 70 [yards] wide,” Batavia coach Mark Gianfrancesco said. “It’s definitely a weapon.” Not to be outdone, senior forward Anna Zeyen, the other Batavia player who uses the flip throw, employed it a few minutes later to help the Bulldogs (12-4-3) score again. Her throw took one bounce before finding sophomore Alexis Bryl open at the far post, and Bryl calmly tapped the ball into the right side of the net to beat Hoffman Estates (2-14-2) freshman goalkeeper Francesca Van. Van was under siege right

Senior forward Grace Andrews gave Batavia the lead less than two minutes into the game with a shot from just inside the box that went right through Van’s wickets. “I was kind of surprised, but a goal’s a goal,” Andrews said. “I think she was not expecting it. I just took an early shot because we wanted to jump on them right away.” Van weathered the early barrage and the Bulldogs only put one shot on goal over the final 30 minutes of the half. “We’ve seen that show before a couple times during the year,” Gianfrancesco said. “We definitely created some chances the first 10 minutes that we could have finished on and definitely would have put them down really early. When we didn’t get those chances, you saw the energy level for us just kind of go down a little bit.” Gianfrancesco said the Bulldogs did a better job of keeping their composure in the second half by connecting passes and spreading the field to create scoring opportunities. Wahlen gave Batavia a 2-0 lead eight minutes into the second half when she scored on a header off freshman Megan McEachern’s corner kick. “Usually, I stay back on corner kicks, but I decided to go up and try to get a head on it,” Wahlen said. “I went in and it pretty much came right towards me and I’m pretty good with my head, so I can direct it to the corner and it went right in the top 90 of the goal.”

COUGARS SHORT HOPS Up next Cougars (RHP Tayler Scott) vs. Peoria (RHP Joe Cuda), 11 a.m. today

CHIEFS 8, COUGARS 4

Close plays, calls don’t go Kane County’s way By VINNIE DUBER editorial@kcchronicle.com

Turnstile report Tuesday’s crowd of 4,889 pushed the Cougars’ season total to 79,187 fans in 19 home games. Kane County attracted 75,708 through 19 games last season.

Sight seen It was a scary moment in the Cougars’ dugout in the top of the fifth. Peoria batter Ildemaro Vargas swung at a pitch, and his bat helicoptered into the home dugout. Infielder Marco Hernandez ended up on the ground from his original position on the top step of the dugout, although it appeared to be only an evasive maneuver and he returned to his spot shortly thereafter.

Cubs brass will be excited because Though he was later ejected, Cougars catcher Willson Contreras smacked a solo home run in the bottom of the fourth inning. The Willson long ball was his Contreras fifth of the season in his 24th game with Kane County. It was also his 16th RBI of the year, which ranks him third on the team.

Cubs brass will cringe because The Cougars committed three errors in the field Tuesday, pushing their season total to 48 in 35 games. Shortstop David Bote couldn’t handle a flip from second baseman Gioskar Amaya in the top of the third, picking up his third error in just his third game with Kane County. And first baseman Dan Vogelbach couldn’t field a ground ball at first base in the fourth inning, earning his seventh error of the year.

The closer The Cougars had trouble finishing off innings Tuesday. Peoria scored five of its eight runs – including the first four – with two outs. Kane County pitching gave up 12 hits on the day, compared to seven from the Cougars’ bats, and the team is now 4-12 when outhit.

GENEVA – Cougars center fielder Oliver Zapata made two throws to the plate on two consecutive balls hit his way Tuesday, with both seemingly beating the runner coming home. But twice the runner was safe, and it proved to be the difference. The Cougars were on the wrong end of two consecutive plays at the plate in the top of the sixth inning, the key moments in an 8-4 defeat in the opening game of a fourgame series against the Peoria Chiefs at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark. With the game tied, 4-4, in the top of the sixth inning, Cougars reliever Justin Amlung issued a one-out walk to Peoria left fielder Michael Swinson. Swinson stole second, and when designated hitter Jacob Wilson lined a single into center field, Swinson tried to come home and score. Zapata’s throw beat the standing-up Swinson by a good distance. But Swinson delivered an accurate blow to the glove of Cougars catcher Willson Contreras, jarring the ball loose and sending it out of play. Neither player was knocked down in the home-plate collision, but the tie-breaking run scored and Wilson advanced to third base. At the next at-bat, first baseman Jordan Walton lifted a fly ball to Zapata, who once again made a throw to the plate. Wilson slid in just as Contreras applied the tag and was called safe by the home plate umpire, who then immediately ejected Contreras, believing the catcher was aggressively sticking out his foot as the runner went by. Manager Mark Johnson came out for a lively argument, but when the dust settled, his catcher was out of the game and his team trailed, 6-4. Peoria added two more

Though the sixth proved to be the game’s deciding frame, it wasn’t the first time the Cougars found themselves behind on the scoreboard Tuesday. They trailed, 4-2, in the fifth inning before left fielder Rock Shoulders tied the game with a two-run single. And after the Chiefs took a 2-1 lead in the top of fourth, Contreras tied the game with a solo homer to center field – his fifth of the season – in the bottom of the inning. “We were playing with them the whole time,” Shoulders said. “They just kind of kept going and we fell off a little there at the end.” Amlung took the loss, his first of the season, though it was Ian Dickson who started for the Cougars. He lasted just four innings in his third start of the year, surrendering two runs on five hits and striking out four.

ABBY HOWLETT Sophomore 1B, St. Charles North What she did: Howlett helped the North Stars cruise past East and split with previously unbeaten Naperville Central after hitting .667 for the week. The sophomore has become one of the tougher outs in the area, hitting the ball to all fields that has led to a .547 batting average before Tuesday. BROOKE GAYLORD Junior P, Burlington Central What she did: Gaylord helped push the Rockets’ winning streak to 20 games after pitching BC to a 3-1 win over state power Moline. The junior is 11-1 on the year and has teamed with Emily Kisch to form one of the tougher pitching staffs in the area.

• Wednesday, May 15, 2013

At the start of every season, among the many things on a coach’s wish list is an underclassman who steps up and performs on the varsity level. In what capacity and how much a player steps up is never known for each coach, but it’s safe to say that St. Charles North coach Tom Poulin is happy with how sophomore Abby Howlett has played thus far. Entering the 2013 season, Poulin knew that Howlett would be a contributor for a young North Stars team. However, Howlett has been North’s offensive catalyst from the fifth position in the batting order while playing beyond what anyone could have imagined thus far. Before Tuesday, Howlett is hitting .547 with 2 home runs and 33 RBIs, helping anchor what is a deep and balanced North Stars’ lineup. North features speed at the top leadoff hitter Sabrina Rabin and middle-of-the-order threats Mickey Goetz and Emily Brodner that consistently get on base ahead of Howlett. “She’s got a high softball IQ. She learns from pitch-to-pitch and at-bat to at-bat,” Poulin said. “She was steady early in the year and she really caught fire. At one point she was 18 for 22 at the plate. She’s had quite a run from middle of the season until now at the plate. She’s hit the ball hard to all fields – really a gap-to-gap player. She’s really solidified the middle of the lineup.” Howlett’s recent tear has spearheaded North’s recent dominance. “If we can get people on ahead of her – which we’ve been able to do – that’s really what led to our larger scoring outputs,” Poulin said. “People had some really good at-bats and getting on base and then Abby was driving them in. She has 33 RBIs right now and the majority of those have come of late.” North made quite a statement last week, winning four of five games including a 100, five-inning-run-rule victory of rival East while splitting with previously unbeaten Naperville Central. It was Howlett’s .667 average during those games that helped North solidify itself as a real threat heading into postseason. “Right now, she’s just flat out an incred-

ible hitter,” Poulin said. “She’s getting on base. I think she can hit for more power too – she’s just a sophomore. We’re really pleased with what she has been doing.” Howlett is one of those underclassmen who has played beyond expectations. “She was kind of off the radar for the majority of the season and hadn’t really heard of her,” Poulin said. “I know that people are preparing for her now considering the streak she is on now and how well she’s been hitting the ball. She has just incredible potential going forward. I think people are going to approach her a lot differently going forward.”

Father–daughter dance St. Francis has been one of the more steady area teams in the last few years and it’s no different this year as the Spartans can wrap up the Suburban Christian Conference Blue Division crown this week. In the middle of the success again for St. Francis is Maggie Remus, daughter of Spartans’ coach Ralph Remus. The junior, who is thinking about playing softball collegiately at the Division III level, has been dominant in the circle for St. Francis. Through 98 innings, Maggie Remus is sporting a 17-0 pitching record with 60 strikeouts and just 12 walks to lead the Spartans to a 19-3 record. “Most consistently, she doesn’t walk people. She has good control and can place the ball really well,” Ralph Remus

said. “She gives up hits but not a lot because it’s good location and she has a good defense behind her.” Maggie Remus has had to get used to freshman catcher Fiona Summers. Despite the backstop’s youth, the Spartans haven’t missed a beat since returning from a spring trip to Orlando. “From Day One, Maggie was nervous about the relationship between her and Fiona, but Fiona has done a terrific behind the plate,” Ralph Remus said. “We’ve been solid since we got back from Orlando. We’ve been hitting well and the defense has been great. The pitching has been good. I don’t have much to complain about.” The Spartans’ biggest competition in the SCC Blue has been Montini. Currently, St. Francis holds a one-game edge over the Broncos in the loss column. The teams split during the season with a potential playoff matchup coming in the sectionals. “Montini has strong hitters and a very nice pitcher,” Remus said. “We won the last game against them, 6-5. They are a lot like we are, honestly. It would be a toss-up game I’d have to say. Before we see them, we’d have to get through Elmwood Park. There’s nothing easy in the playoffs.” If the Spartans take care of St. Edward, Rosary and Guerin this week, they take home the SCC Blue crown outright. – Ian Matthews, editorial@kcchronicle.com

COACH SLY SEZ ... Sly is looking in the playoff mirror on the wall and wants to know who of the Chronicle area teams is the fairest of them all. For the first time in a while, the St. Charles schools won’t meet in the regionals, instead likely facing off

in the East sectional final. Meanwhile, Burlington Central and St. Francis, with two and three losses on the season respectively, have favorable draws in the early rounds of the playoffs. • You can respond at kcchronicle.com/blogs/sly.

WHAT WE LEARNED LAST WEEK ... The St. Charles schools, St. Francis and Burlington Central could be poised for big runs in the postseason. In past years, East and North were usually paired in the same regional, setting up an early exit for one of the rivals. Not so this year as each teams’ regular season has pushed back a potential meeting to the East Sectional. Meanwhile, St. Francis and Burlington Central could tear through the 3A brackets as each has strong pitching depth and deep lineups.

WHAT WE’LL LEARN IN THE WEEK AHEAD ... What schools will walk away with regular-season hardware. While the postseason is the most important season, taking care of business in conference, especially for North in the grueling Upstate Eight River Division is quite an accomplishment. St. Francis can also claim the Suburban Christian Blue title this week if it wins out or if second-place Montini falters.

KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE SYCAMORE – Junior forward Alyssa Messina scored the tying goal in the final two minutes of regulation, then added the winner with four minutes left in overtime as the Burlington Central girls soccer team rallied to win Tuesday’s 2A Sycamore Regional semifinal. Top-seeded BC clipped Hampshire, 4-3, after trailing, 3-0, at intermission. “When you get into an elimination situation, that moment needs to be recognized along with how urgent you’re going to play,” Rockets coach Steve Berry said. “We had that mantra to work, but we probably came out a little soft, so we decided to work in the second half and found a way to keep

Dennis Quaid

More Content Now If you ask Dennis Quaid if he’s content with where he’s at in his long career, he’ll tell you that he’s just “happy to be anywhere.” And he’s not being facetious. After years of drug and alcohol abuse, the ruggedly handsome Texan is finally in a good enough place to fully relish his craft almost as much as he adores his three children: Jack (with ex Meg Ryan), 21, and 5-year-old twins, Thomas and Zoe. It hasn’t been easy, he admitted on a recent visit to Boston to promote his latest film, the “Wall Street”-on-a-farm saga, “At Any Price,” which opens May 17. But even he is surprised by how far he has come since famously conquering his vices 20 years ago. He even picked up a Screen Actors Guild nomination, playing a closeted executive in 2002’s “Far From Heaven,” and could well pick up another for “Price,” in which he plays a farmer cutting legal and ethical corners to survive in a highly mechanized, big-money business. “I’m just glad to still be here – I truly, truly am,” said Quaid between puffs on an electronic cigarette while sprawled on a couch in his posh suite at Boston’s Liberty Hotel. “Some of the people I started out with, I wonder where they are now.” Quaid said his experience in confronting demons helped him fit snuggly into the role of “Price’s” Henry Whipple, a man so trapped by his father’s legacy that he feels compelled to sacrifice just about all decency to win Daddy’s grudging approval. And what Henry wants is not only to be Iowa’s most successful farmer, but also the state’s top salesman for the Monsanto-like seed giant, Liberty. But that’s just the cusp of his megalomania. His real desire is to lure his prodigal sons into – excuse the expression – his field. But Henry’s eldest, Grant (Patrick Stevens), thinks so little of the idea, the former Iowa State football star has hightailed it to Peru to take refuge in the Andes, while his little bro, Dean, counts the days until he too can flee, hopefully onto the high-paying NASCAR circuit. The recalcitrant kid, if you may not

have heard, is portrayed by the love-him or hate-him Zac Efron, who tries his hardest to not just play Dean, but to play him as James Dean. He fails, of course, but it’s still a pretty respectable performance. One that Quaid sees a lot of his younger self in. “He’s such a great actor,” Quaid said of his much-maligned co-star. “He kind of reminds me of me. He started out in these kinds of heartthrob roles because that’s all they are offering you at that age. But he’s willing to grow and expand. And he’s got all the tools in his toolbox.” If Efron is going to continue emulating Quaid, he has a pretty tough row to hoe. With more than 60 films to his credit, or about one flick for each of his 59 years, Quaid has managed to be that rare actor who is always in demand. “The only strategy I’ve had is to try and do as many different types of characters as I can because I’ve always seen myself as a character actor,” said Quaid, who has played everything from an astronaut (“The Right Stuff”) and pro quarterback (“Any Given Sunday”) to President Bill Clinton (“The Special Relationship”). Few roles, he says, have captivated him as thoroughly as Henry, who Quaid insists is a decent guy even though he cheats on his wife (Kim Dickens) almost

as much as he cheats on his employer. “I don’t see Henry Whipple as a bad guy,” said Quaid, dressed comfortably in faded jeans and a stylish sweater. “I see Henry as a person living in a world he no longer recognizes. He came from being a kid on his family’s farm. And now it’s all becoming about technology and corporations, and this sort of Wall Street atmosphere of ‘get big or get out.’ And he’s swept up in it. He’s become kind of ruthless ... and he actually believes his own delusional thinking. But inside, he feels broken. And as this film progresses, he starts to crack.” Quaid said he was intrigued by Henry, but the reason he accepted the role was director Ramin Bahrani, the North Carolinian who has won universal acclaim for modest, deeply touching indies like “Goodbye Solo” and “Man Push Cart.” But it was Bahrani’s “Chop Shop” that sealed the deal. “The performances in that were amazing,” said Quaid of “Chop Shop,” which tells the affecting tale of a 12-yearold New York street orphan (non-actor Alejandro Polanco) scraping by in a Queens scrapyard. “That kid was so natural, so compelling, that when Ramin and I met, I said, ‘Look, if you can get a performance out of me like you did with that kid, that’s what I want to do.’” Even though he’s playing farming’s version of a stage mother, Quaid said he could never see himself manipulating his children the way Henry does, swearing he never pressured son, Jack, into entering the family business. “With him, I guess, it’s because both his father and his mother are actors,” a proud and beaming Quaid said of Jack, best known for playing Marvel in the megahit, “The Hunger Games.” “It just seemed like a natural thing to him right from the very beginning. And he’s doing it all on his own.” Quaid said he prays Jack never encounters the hordes of paparazzi he and Ryan faced when they were locked in their tumultuous marriage. And as much as he’d love to be rid of that flashbulb vermin, he knows it’s a price he must pay for doing what he enjoys most. “I’ve become immune to it in a certain sense because it comes with the territory,” he said of the undue attention. “And I love acting too much to ever want to give it up.”

This year’s health kits cover subjects that include recognizing health scams, preventing food poisoning, managing your medications from pregnancy to menopause, participating in clinical trials (which can be a lifesaver), controlling asthma, selecting a mammography facility, and staying safe with cosmetics and tattooing. There is no charge for the Friends and Family Health Kits, and they’re easy to order. Just send your name and address to Friends and Family Health Kit, Pueblo, CO 81009; go online to www.promotions.usa.gov/dearabby.html; or call 888-878-3256. The publications can also be

read online in PDF format, or be downloaded to your computer and printed out. Dear Abby: I live in Alaska and have good friends I visit every summer on the East Coast. I have some acquaintances and former co-workers who live there, too. Many of them want me to visit when I come down. I have grown apart from these former friends and keep in touch only through occasional emails and Facebook. I really just want to rest and hang out with the friends I’ll be staying with. What’s the polite way to tell these former co-workers and acquaintances that I don’t want to spend my vacation time with them? – Trying To Be Polite In Anchorage Dear Trying To Be Polite: If you have any desire to continue the relationships with your former co-workers and acquaintances, why not arrange to meet a group of them at an agreed-upon place one afternoon for a “reunion?” • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Address toddler’s biting as soon as it occurs Dear Doctor K: Today at the playground my toddler bit another child. How can I make sure she doesn’t do this again? Dear Reader: Lots of toddlers between 1 and 3 years go through biting and/or hitting stages. Children at these ages cannot yet express in words their feelings, so they may bite or hit parents, children or caregivers to get attention or to express frustration. These young children also may bite just to see what kind of reaction it provokes. Toddlers will try any behavior to achieve a goal – until they learn that the behavior is unacceptable. If we didn’t know it was unacceptable, we adults would probably revert to behaving like toddlers. (In fact, no surprise, we sometimes do.) And kids who know a behavior is unacceptable still will do it when the conditions are right. A friend’s 5-year-old daughter was alone in the living room bouncing a ball. The ball knocked over a vase. When her mother heard the crash, she came into the room, saw what had happened and said to her daughter: “You know you’re not supposed to bounce a ball inside the house! Why did you do that?” Her daugh-

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff ter replied, “’Cause you weren’t looking, Mom.” Back to the biting: The reasons for this aggressive behavior may be understandable, but the behavior itself is never acceptable. Biting and hitting hurt, and children need to learn more appropriate ways to express themselves. My pediatrician colleagues here at Harvard Medical School tell me that when your child bites or hits, it is very important to make a swift, direct response. Tell your daughter what she should not do, why she should not do it, and what the consequences will be if she does it again. State firmly and immediately: “No! Do not bite! Biting hurts! If you do it again, no TV for you tonight!” Keep your words simple and short. Children this age don’t have the attention span or developmental ability to understand long explanations. After responding to your child’s misbehavior, try to figure out why she acted this way. If she

is biting or hitting to get attention, discourage this behavior by making extra efforts to praise her when she behaves appropriately. If your child has kicked or bitten another child, pay special attention to the victim. Your child will learn that by misbehaving, her attempts to get your attention have backfired. If she is biting to relieve teething pain, offer her something soft to chew on. If she is frustrated or angry, remove her from the situation. If she has started to talk, suggest words that she can use to express her feelings. If she is overstimulated, over-tired or hungry, address the specific need and try to anticipate it in the future. If aggressive behaviors are properly addressed as soon as they occur, most children learn quickly that this kind of behavior is unacceptable and stop. If your child is older than 3 years and is still hitting and/or biting, your pediatrician may recommend that she see a child psychiatrist.

Woman regrets smoking habit after father’s death Dr. Wallace: I appreciate your strong stand of telling teens the physical dangers of smoking tobacco products, with cigarettes being the leader. I’m a 52-year-old woman who started smoking at the very young age of 14. When I started smoking, it was considered that smoking was cool and sophisticated. Advertisements on television and radio and even billboards pitched the image that smoking was the “in” thing. All the beautiful women in the movies enjoyed smoking. At age 22, I watched my father die from lung cancer. He was a heavy smoker. That day, I decided to end my smoking habit, but I couldn’t. I was totally addicted to nicotine. I still make an effort to quit smoking several times a year, but I’m still a victim of tobacco. I have hope that someday I will be tobacco-free. My only hope is that it will not be too late by then. Please continue to encourage teens to never start smoking, or if they are now smoking, to have the courage to stop and never again start. I wish I had never had that first puff of my dad’s Lucky Strike! – Nameless, Brookhaven, Miss. Dear Nameless: Thanks for sharing your experiences with the power and destruction of nicotine with our teen readers. It’s very important that they hear from those who have been there and done that. Dr. Wallace: I’m 19, and my fiance is 21. I really care for Ted, and basically he’s a good guy, but he is extremely possessive of me and is a very

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace jealous sort of person. I’m a very attractive young woman, and Ted is what one would say ruggedly handsome. If we’re out together and I happen to look at another guy, he gets upset. When he cools off, he apologizes, but that cooling off only lasts until he thinks I’m looking at another guy. He said he would change his jealous ways after we get married, but I’m not sure he will. My parents don’t believe he will change and keep advising me not to marry Ted. But my best friend thinks that he is a good catch and is too good to toss away. Help! – Undecided, Batavia

Dear Undecided: Follow the advice of your parents! I’ve never subscribed to the theory that a person’s flaws will disappear after the marriage ceremony. In fact, many of them intensify. Since Ted is aware that he has a jealousy problem, I’d advise him to seek professional counseling. My advice is to delay the wedding until you are 100 percent positive he is no longer overbearingly possessive. It’s easier to do this now rather than after you’re married. Once he thinks you’re “his,” you may have no leverage to counter Ted’s fits of jealousy. Marrying someone like that is a recipe for misery, and your marriage could end in misery. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@ galesburg.net.

CELEBRITY CIPHER

This week, we are looking at various aspects of the Stayman convention, which tries to find a 4-4 major-suit fit after opener shows a balanced hand. When the opening bid is one no-trump and responder bids two clubs, it asks opener to show a four-card major. If he has two of them, he rebids two hearts. Then, what does the responder do when he has four spades and fewer than four hearts? If he has game-invitational strength, he continues with two spades if one no-trump – two no-trump would not be natural (perhaps a transfer to diamonds). But if one no-trump – two no-trump would be inviting three no-trump, the responder rebids two no-trump. When the responder has game-forcing values, he jumps to three no-trump. If, as in this deal, the opener is 4-4 in the majors, he moves the contract from three no-trump to four spades. West leads the club queen. East takes dummy’s king with his ace and returns the club eight (the higher of two remaining cards). When that holds the trick, East shifts to the heart king. How should South continue after winning this trick with his ace? South must avoid a spade loser. This will be easy if the suit splits 3-2, but what if an opponent has four to the jack? This can be handled only if it is East with the length. South should cash his spade king, then play a spade to dummy’s ace. When the bad break comes to light, South finesses his spade 10, draws the last trump, and runs the diamonds for his contract.
