T

he minute I saw the advertisement for the St. Charles Park District Turtle Wrangler Training program, I knew I wanted to photograph participants. The only problem was that I would have to wait until it was

sunny and warm enough for the turtles to be outdoors. The district now has dozens of turtle wranglers registered to take their turtles out for a moment in the sun, and Tuesday – with temperatures reaching the low 90s – was a day for

wrangling. Pam Otto, manager of nature programs and interpretive services at the St. Charles Park District – and a columnist for the Kane County Chronicle – called me Tuesday afternoon to let me know that three trained wran-

glers, Azul Canon, 8, Sam Tomka, 8, and Vivian Johnsen, 9, were in fact wrangling. The program also trained the young animal lovers to feed fish, clean the rabbit’s cage and wrangle the resident lizard.

It will include complimentary wine and snacks. The park is just south of Prairie Street in downtown St. Charles along the west bank of the Fox River. Sculpture in the Park began as a way to showcase artwork in the St. Charles area. This year, it boasts 10 pieces, including several perma-

nent installations. This year’s pieces are: My Rescue by Martha Cares of Sawyer, Mich.; Starts on the Wind by Richard Taylor of Milwaukee; Mr. Eggwards by Kimber Fiebeger of Minneapolis; Padre Pio by Titus Tomescu of Chicago; and Leo and Sympatico (Chelsea & Kaitlyn), both by Pokey Park of Tucson, Ariz. Pieces from artists of the St. Charles community are Lissome by Guy Bellaver; Bomb Pop by Howard Russo; Suess’s Needle by Todd Willing; and Solitude by Douglas Eageny. The sculptures are along the walking path in Mount St.

Mary Park. The six-month exhibit drew more than 8,000 visitors to the park last year, according to the St. Charles Park District. Sculpture in the Park is made possible by the combined efforts of St. Charles Park District, the St. Charles Park Foundation and the Downtown St. Charles Partnership. All sculptures are for sale.

North senior aims for future on Broadway By ASHLEY RHODEBECK arhodebeck@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – Taylor Marie Sherry’s first visit to New York City will be spent this summer in Broadway workshops, learning from Broadway choreographers, directors and actors. Although the 18-year-old will have the chance to win an award at the National High School Musical Theater Awards held that week, the St. Charles North High School senior said she’s not expecting any accolades. “I’m just going to go and work really hard,” Sherry said. “Everyone there is so extremely talented.”

Sherry said she was blessed to have such an incredible

experience. “I learned a lot working with those choreographers,” Sherry said. In New York, Sherry and other students will perform at the Minskoff Theatre, and a panel of judges will pick two students for the awards of best performance by an actor and best performance by an actress, according to a news release from Broadway In Chicago. Sherry hopes to one day make it on Broadway, she said. The daughter of Equity actors, Sherry has performed in musicals since she was about 4, she said.

physics and/or particle astrophysics was awarded to Lincoln “for communicating in multiple media the excitement of high-energy physics to high school students and teachers, and the public at large.” “I didn’t expect it because Don Lincoln of the history of it being given to the Europeans,” Lincoln said. “I was quite surprised.” The award will be presented to Lincoln in July at the Europhysics Conference on High-Energy Physics in Stockholm. “I promised my mom I

would get an award in Stockholm,” Lincoln said. “I hoped it would be the Noble Prize, but this is a start.” But Lincoln said he isn’t motivated by the opportunity to win awards. “What really is much more gratifying is when I get an email from a student who has decided to study physics because of one of my books,” he said. Lincoln said much knowledge has been gained at laboratories such as Fermilab. “We are continuing to try to understand the building blocks of the universe and the rules that govern them, and to understand the origins of the universe,” he said.

By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – The city’s project to build a third tier parking deck at the Metra commuter parking facility is on hold, as Geneva aldermen rejected three bids this week for being too high. The bids were opened in January. The first two tiers of the parking deck have a combined 365 parking spaces. The third level would add 160

parking spaces for commuters, records show. The city and Metra signed an intergovernmental agreement on the project in 2006, which was amended in October to allow State of Illinois Capital Bonds to pay for it. Public Works Director Dan Dinges said the plan is to rebid the project this summer for a spring 2014 construction. The project’s budget is $3.3 million, but bids came in at nearly $4.4 million from

KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE editorial@kcchronicle.com ELGIN – The Illinois General Assembly has passed a measure that will let Elgin Community College expand by purchasing land from the city of Elgin, according to a news release from state Rep. Keith Farnham, D-Elgin. “This bill will allow ECC to continue to expand its beautiful campus and provide additional educational resources to our quickly growing community and student population,” Farnham said in the release. Farnham introduced House Bill 2862 in February. Sen. Michael Noland, D-Elgin, sponsored the legislation in the Senate. “ECC is an important part of our community, and this expansion will ensure students have the resources they need to success,” Noland said in the release. “ECC needs this expansion to prepare students

for the future and remain a vibrant center of learning.” The bill advanced out of the General Assembly on Wednesday and awaits Gov. Pat Quinn’s approval. The legislation, an initiative of the city of Elgin, would allow land owned by the city to be rezoned for commercial or industrial use, according to the release. The change is necessary because Elgin plans to sell part of the land to ECC, which will use the property for an expansion that might include a bookstore or restaurant, according to the release. “We are pleased to have the support of both State Rep. Farnham and State Sen. Noland as we work with the city of Elgin to acquire this property adjacent to our campus,” ECC President David Sam said in a written statement. “The rezoning gives the college flexibility as we determine how this land will be used to benefit our students and the community.”

bids and determined that Walsh also did not meet its business diversity requirements for minority and women-owned businesses. According to an April 26 letter from Metra to the city, “there is no indication that the effort to solicit [minority or women-owned businesses] was any different than the effort to solicit other vendors.” Contractors are to solicit work for these businesses and have procedures to notify the

qualified contractors of the available work, according to the letter. Dinges said Metra is looking at reducing the minority and women-owned business requirement to 10 percent from its current 20 percent because the amount of subcontracted work for the parking deck project is minimal. Metra also has been working with the RTA to secure additional funding for the expansion, Dinges said.

Rash of burglaries reported in St. Charles By ASHLEY RHODEBECK

“Leaving your car unlocked with valuables visible is an open invitation for someone walking by to help themselves to your property. Summertime is especially ripe for theft as school is out and idle teenagers are out and about.”

arhodebeck@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – Nearly a dozen households on the city’s west side reported overnight burglaries to their vehicles – and in some cases to their homes – last week, St. Charles police said. St. Charles Police Department spokesman Paul McCurtain described the burglaries as crimes of opportunity because they involved unlocked cars. Police believe the burglaries, which happened between the night of May 9 and the morning of May 10 are connected. “The cases are all under investigation,” McCurtain said. He reminded people to lock the doors to their homes and vehicles. “Be aware of what’s going on in your neighborhood,” McCurtain said. In two cases, residents reported that someone had entered their homes as well as their cars. A $300 laptop and $300 tablet were reported stolen from a house in the 800 block of

Manley Road. The front driver’s side door to the residents’ 2000 Ford vehicle – which contained a garage door opener – was ajar in the morning, police reported, noting entry to the house was made through the door to the garage. Someone also entered an unlocked house in the 1300 block of Fox Meadow Court, but nothing was reported stolen, police said. Entry was also reportedly made to a 2000 Dodge vehicle. A resident in the 1200 block of Brook Street reportedly awoke to a 1994 Ford car parked in his driveway that did not belong to him. The lights were reportedly on, windows were rolled down, the doors were unlocked and a key was in the ignition. Police reportedly traced

the car to the 200 block of Debruyne Street. The owner told police no damage was done to the vehicle, and only a lanyard with four keys was missing. Also in the 200 block of Debruyne Street, an iPod and USB car charger were reported missing from a 2010 Dodge vehicle. Two burglaries occurred in the 100 block of Lewis Court, where items in a 2006 Honda car were disturbed but not stolen, and a $350 designer purse was taken from a Chevrolet, according to police reports. Police noted the purse contained only miscellaneous paperwork, and no money, credit cards or important documents. Three vehicles in the 300 and 900 blocks of Timbers Trail also were hit.

Two phone chargers valued at $40 each and some coins were taken from a 2007 Chevrolet; a $40 phone charger, $100 navigation system and some cash were stolen from a 2008 Toyota; and a $100 navigation system was missing from a 2007 GMC, police reported. In the 100 block of Carrol Road, a fleece jacket was reported stolen from a 2012 Nissan. Meanwhile, items were disturbed but nothing was reported stolen from a 2006 Nissan in the 500 block of Bradley Circle, police reported. The village of Campton Hills also has experienced a rash of burglaries to cars recently. Police Chief Dan Hoffman said in a news release that residents should lock their cars and never leave valu-

ables in plain sight. “Leaving your car unlocked with valuables visible is an open invitation for someone walking by to help themselves to your property,” he said in the release. “Summertime is especially ripe for theft as school is out and idle teenagers are out and about.” Hoffman also advised residents to lock their doors and windows when they are away from home and to check their garage doors, especially before going to bed. “Campton Hills officers have found numerous garage doors open in the middle of the night and have made notification to the owners,” Hoffman said in the release. “Garages contain a treasure trove of valuables that thieves would love to get their hands on, and also provides easy access to your home.” In emergencies, McCurtain and Hoffman said, residents should call 911. Hoffman said residents also can report suspicious behavior, such as unfamiliar vehicles and people, to the village’s nonemergency line at 630-584-0330.

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

Space, above and beyond Rosary senior aims to pursue degree in aerospace engineering By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com For Rosary High School senior Colleen Madlinger, space really is the next frontier. Madlinger, who lives near Batavia and attends Holy Cross Catholic Church, will attend the Massachusetts Institute of Technology this fall, where she plans to pursue a degree in aerospace engineering. But she is not looking to travel to space herself. “I would rather focus on improving technology than being an astronaut myself,” the 18-year-old said. “They are trying to think of more efficient ways to do things in space.” The Kane County Chronicle is highlighting local high school seniors and sharing their stories as graduation season nears. Madlinger has been interested in space since she was a youngster. “I did a project on lunar eclipses in the fifth grade,” she said. Madlinger attended a lecture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison given by American astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.

She looks up to him. “He’s really into supporting space programs,” Madlinger said. “He’s very inspiring.” The fact that she was able to get into MIT is somewhat of a surprise to Madlinger. “I didn’t think I had a great chance of getting in,” she said. “It helped that I had really great letters of recommendation.” The Boston Marathon bombing happened a day after she visited MIT. Later that week, an MIT security guard was shot and killed by the Boston Marathon bombers. Although she said she was shocked by what happened, she still feels the MIT campus is safe. “It’s probably not going to happen again at MIT,” Madlinger said. “You can’t let it rule your life.” Madlinger excels at math, and has won numerous awards in the Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics and Marmion Academy math contests as a team member and individual. During the summer, she tutors high school and college students. “I like the constancy of math,”

Madlinger said. “Math doesn’t change. It always is going to be the same answer.” She developed her love for math as a student at Montessori Academy of Batavia, which she attended from kindergarten through third grade. Beverly Cange, Rosary’s mathematics department chair, said Madlinger is “very inquisitive.” Madlinger has been a student in four of Cange’s honors math classes, where Madlinger has continually maintained an “A” average even as the material has gotten more difficult. “She is not afraid to ask ‘why’ questions about material and is not satisfied until she understands totally,” Cange said. Besides her academic efforts, Madlinger has spent time giving back, whether that is shelving books at St. Vincent de Paul’s Deja Vu thrift shop in Geneva or helping middle school students at Holy Cross Catholic School practice for math competitions. “She does what she loves to do,” said Madlinger’s mother, Cathy. “She’s focused her energies into things she enjoys.”

Rosary High School graduate Colleen Madlinger of Batavia will attend Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the fall.

BATAVIA – Rosary High School senior Maddie Heinen said she loves helping others. This year, Heinen, of Batavia, was named as a member of Rosary’s Senior Retreat Team. In that capacity, she helped lead Rosary’s retreats along with helping with Mass and various events for incoming freshmen. “We try to get the girls to open up to each other,” Heinen said. “Ever since I was a freshman, I have always Maddie looked to the SRT Heinen girls. I feel really good about being a role model to all the girls in the school.” Along with her school activities, the 18-year-old volunteers her time working with organizations that help the disabled, including Marklund in Geneva and Hope Wall School in Aurora. “I really do love helping people,” Heinen said. “I do love to make others happy.” Rosary guidance counselor Edie Branom said she’s impressed with Heinen’s desire to give back to the community. “I believe it is Madelyn’s open heart and her great patience that makes her a perfect fit for helping disabled individuals, because she does not see disabled individuals, she sees differently abled individuals,” Branom said. Heinen’s mom, Melissa, said she knows how passionate her daughter is about helping others. “She has a passion for people and wanting to help,” she said. Heinen will attend the University of Iowa this fall, where she has been accepted into the school’s early decision nursing program. “I like to work with babies,” she said. “I know I want to do something with younger kids.” Her older brother, Tyler, will be a junior this fall at the University of Iowa. “It’s going to be nice to have family there,” Heinen said.

ANOTHER VIEW

A chilling overreaction The WASHINGTON POST

• Friday, May 17, 2013

When the Justice Department launched its investigation of alleged leaks of national security information by the Obama administration a year ago, we were skeptical. The history of such probes is mainly a tale of dead ends and unintended negative consequences. That this effort to criminalize a leak was launched amid an election-year uproar seemed especially inauspicious. Our forebodings have been borne out with the revelation that federal prosecutors have undertaken a broad sweep of The Associated Press’s phone records. Whatever national security enhancement this was intended to achieve seems likely to be outweighed by the damage to press freedom and governmental transparency. The Justice Department’s apparent purpose is to track down the person or people who told AP about the Central Intelligence Agency’s disruption of a Yemen-based terrorism plot. Federal prosecutors subpoenaed records for 20 separate office, home and cellular phone lines belonging to AP and its reporters or editors. The subpoenas covered a two-month period in the first half of 2012. Crucially, they did not follow the usual Justice Department policy, which is to give news organizations a chance to negotiate or contest such a subpoena ahead of time. That policy is rooted in sound respect for the First Amendment. It’s not legally binding – in part because the Justice Department and the press have recognized a mutual interest in resolving such matters without potentially counterproductive congressional or judicial intervention. In a letter to AP President and CEO Gary Pruitt on Tuesday, Deputy Attorney General

James M. Cole explained that the department had no alternative means of gathering essential information. He also intimated that Justice had kept AP in the dark until a few days ago so as to avoid “a substantial threat to the integrity of the investigation.” Attorney General Eric Holder, who recused himself from the investigation after he was interviewed by the FBI, fleshed that assertion out at a news conference Tuesday, saying at issue is one of “the top two or three most serious leaks that I have ever seen,” which “put the American people at risk, and that is not hyperbole.” Perhaps that’s so. As Pruitt responded Tuesday, “We held that story until the government assured us that the national security concerns had passed.” The usual reason for keeping a subpoena secret is that the target would otherwise try to destroy documents. In this case, AP could not have done so even if it wanted to, since the relevant records were in the possession of its phone service providers. Without even giving AP a chance to weigh in, we don’t see how the department could intelligently weigh its prosecutorial needs against this broad subpoena’s chilling effect on reporters and their sources. Of course, if Justice Department officials are overreacting, they aren’t alone. The investigation of AP began in response to Republican outrage about the purported fact that White House officials were leaking secret information and spinning it to make President Obama look good for re-election purposes. In response, the Obama administration launched the present investigation, on top of the six (mostly unsuccessful) ones it had attempted previously – which, judging on costs and benefits visible to date, were probably six too many.

Turnstile report Thursday’s combined doubleheader crowd of 13,118 pushed the Cougars’ season total to 100,277 fans in 22 home games. Kane County attracted 95,941 fans through the same span last season.

Celebrity watch No, he wasn’t Theo Epstein – or even a Cubs official, but St. Louis Cardinals farm director John Vuch was among those on hand at Fifth Third Ballpark. The Chiefs are a Cardinals affiliate after spending 2005 to 2012 aligned with the Cubs.

Sight seen A big patch of Rotolo red. Students from Batavia’s Rotolo Middle School performed the national anthem before the 11:30 a.m. opener, then joined their classmates down the left field line as part of Ozzie’s Reading Club Day. The group sported red T-shirts with a bulldog in the middle of the message “RMS INVADES COUGAR STADIUM.”

Cubs brass will be excited because Second baseman Gioskar Amaya keeps turning the corner at the plate. His bases-clearing double in the sixth inning of Game 1 highlighted a three-hit day.

Cubs brass will cringe because The defense regressed in the nightcap after a steady stretch of good play. The Cougars’ six errors eclipsed the previous season-high of five set April 26 at Fort Wayne.

The closer Much like the split would indicate, there were plenty of elements of a push. Brisk pitching and timely hitting in Game 1 gave way to sloppiness in Game 2, but that’s developmental baseball.

KANE COUNTY COUGARS

Long day at the ballpark ends with split for Cougars By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com GENEVA – A blazing bullpen relay of Brian Smith, Eddie Orozco and Jeffry Antigua handed the Cougars two things Thursday afternoon. First: A combined one-hitter in a 5-0, seven-inning victory against Peoria. Second: Plenty of downtime between games of a split doubleheader. Manager Mark Johnson gave players about three hours on their own before preparing for the nightcap, an 8-2 loss that brought the club back to .500 at 19-19. Some stayed in the clubhouse. Some didn’t. Either way, it wasn’t a bad afternoon to explore the Tri-Cities. “Yeah, absolutely,” third baseman David Bote said. “Good to see what you’ve got around, you know. I mean, I like seeing it. It’s pretty out here.” The Chiefs (19-19) would just as soon have looked away from one another after the opener. Making a spot start, Smith spaced two walks and two strikeouts in four innings while extending his scoreless streak to 10 1/3 innings over four May appearances. A familiar and com-

fortable approach pushed him through. “Definitely that’s what my goal is. Pitch inside. Soft away,” Smith said. “It worked out for me today.” Orozco yielded the lone Peoria hit when Chiefs designated hitter Patrick Wisdom singled to open the fifth. The Cougars promptly erased him on a double play, and Orozco and Antigua retired the final seven hitters in order after that. Peoria, shut out in the middle two games of a four-game split, could have used a better boost entering a long day at the ballpark. Although center fielder Nick Martini – a Prairie Ridge alumnus – might have served as a useful Randall corridor tour guide, the Chiefs stayed put, following the usual protocol of life on the road in the Midwest League. “It’s mostly just baseball and trying to get lifts in and stuff like that,” Martini said. The Cougars, granted a bonus home game because making up a postponed game in Peoria could not be worked out logistically, can attest. “I’ve been in those shoes before, too, and that’s not very fun,” Johnson said. “But hey,

you get some cards, play, have fun. Whatever you need. Whatever you can do to pass the time.” About the only Game 2 advantage the Cougars boasted was a niche one. Lefty Michael Heesch got the better of his fiveyear Prairie Ridge reunion with Martini, retiring his former IHSA 4A state champion teammate twice among his nine outs. The Cougars committed six errors in the game, as four of Heesch’s six runs were unearned. Peoria limited Kane County to six hits. Shortstop Marco Hernandez, who finished with a four-hit day, smacked a two-run homer in the second inning to provide a brief lead. Peoria scored six times in the third, then tacked on a pair of unearned runs in the seventh. Cougars right fielder Bijan Rademacher, a former collegiate pitcher, absorbed that rally along with a come-backer. He shook off any concerns of injury and finished his third relief appearance this season. As usual, using Rademacher was in the name of saving the bullpen, ideally for performances such as those in Game 1. “We definitely needed something like that on a day like this,” Smith said.

QUICK READ Kevin Druley until about the 21st mile, when she sensed herself tiring. Her finishing time of 2:59:06 marked a PR in seven marathon starts, but still fell short of Hamstra-Wright’s 2:57:57. With Hamstra-Wright not entered in this year’s race, held May 4, Cook topped her nearest competitor – Jennifer Benitez of Carol Stream – by nearly two minutes. The victory proved a nice conversation piece for Cook’s proteges. A visual arts teacher at Oswego East, Cook is in her second season as head girls track coach. She took the reins of the Wolves’ girls cross country program last fall. “It’s pretty exciting to see on that end,” Cook said. “I know what running means to me and I know what it means to the kids I get to coach and be around.”

Batavia graduate Lisa Cook, the former Lisa Phillips, was the women’s winner in the May 4 Wisconsin Marathon in Kenosha, Wis., running the race in 3:04:39. At Batavia, Cook competed in volleyball and track through her junior year before electing to focus solely on track as she attracted college interest. A multiple state qualifier, Cook finished third in the 3,200 meters in Class AA in 2003. She ran for a time at Illinois, but

did not pursue marathon running until the end of college. “I kind of always knew that I was better at running than I was at volleyball, but I loved both sports,” Cook said. “When I had seen volleyball take its course, I knew that running was there for me.”

She doesn’t see that changing anytime soon. Litany of Saints at state: St. Charles East won all four relays at last week’s Class 3A West Aurora Girls Track and Field Sectional, paving the way for a surprise team title. The Saints enter today’s state meet preliminaries at Eastern Illinois’ O’Brien Stadium in Charleston carrying a healthy supply of momentum, not to mention nine indidivudal qualifiers to complement the relays. “Just to think about where we were at the beginning of the season and where we are now, it’s phenomenal,” East senior sprinter Britney Williams said. “I mean, so many girls qualified, and it was just so exciting to watch all of them. And I was cheering right before my races.”

Lisa Cook first embraced distance running when she was Lisa Phillips, a Batavia student still deciding whether she preferred volleyball to track. The 10th anniversary of her high school graduation is coming up, and Cook couldn’t be more proud of her production on pavement. Earlier this month, Cook was the women’s winner at the Wisconsin Marathon, traversing the Kenosha-centered course in 3:04.39. While the time didn’t mark her personal best, Cook held her ground on her gender through the final stretch, something she couldn’t say about last year’s effort in Wisconsin. “I really just didn’t want to get caught at the end, and was just kind of driven by winning the marathon,” Cook said. “I don’t now how many opportunities I’ll get to do that.” Cook and Chicago resident Karrie Hamstra-Wright both broke the previous course record at the 2012 Wisconsin Marathon.

BLACKHAWKS

Hawks ignore ‘PK’ streak By TOM MUSICK tmusick@shawmedia.com CHICAGO – Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews and his teammates are doing plenty of things right to maintain a perfect record on the penalty kill during the playoffs. Here’s one thing they’re not doing. “We’re not thinking about streaks,” Toews said Thursday at the United Center as the Hawks prepared for their next game against the Detroit Red Wings. “Same thing went for our win streak this year.” While the Hawks ignore their streaks, everyone else can enjoy following along.

The Hawks are 20 for 20 on the penalty kill during the postseason heading into Saturday’s Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals. That included 17 consecutive penalty kills against the Minnesota in Round 1 and a 3 for 3 mark so far against Detroit. However, Hawks forward Michael Frolik said the two successes are unrelated. He is one of the team’s top penalty killers along with Toews, Marian Hossa and Marcus Kruger. “This is a new series against Detroit,” Frolik said. “It’s a whole different team than Minnesota. They have so much skill. They’re a very smart team.”

MARMION BOYS TENNIS

Jeff Krage for Shaw Media

Marmion Academy’s John King hits a return during a tennis tournament at West Aurora High School last month. The Geneva resident played No. 1 singles for the Cadets this season as a freshman. By JAY SCHWAB jschwab@shawmedia.com AURORA – Geneva resident John King wasn’t sure how he’d fit into the powerhouse Marmion boys tennis program as a freshman. Turns out No. 1 singles has suited King just fine. “I honestly didn’t know what I was going to play coming in to the year because we’ve got some really good players on the team,” King said. “I just wanted to really make an impact on the team and help them win conference, and we obviously did that. It’s been a good year. It’s been a really good year.” King and the Cadets hope to add additional luster to the season at the West Aurora Sectional today and Saturday. King (18-7) had an immediate comfort level with high school tennis since Marmion’s coach, John Tsang, coached his older sister, Katie King, at Rosary. Tsang said he could tell King was ready for the rigors of No. 1 singles early when he played “a very smart match against a very veteran player,” defeating highly regarded Lockport standout Lucas Randall. A booming serve and forehand allow King to take on older, more seasoned opponents. Tsang noted that Marmion senior Jackson Rettig, who is eye-

ing his third straight state doubles berth this weekend, has a monstrous serve, and said King isn’t far behind. “[Rettig] has one of the biggest serves in the game, and John’s right there, and John’s a freshman,” Tsang said. “So you can imagine as he progresses sophomore, junior and senior year, it’s only going to get bigger.” King, though, said he doesn’t always feel in the groove at the service line. “Sometimes, it’s right on target, sometimes I just feel like I’m serving a second serve every single time,” King said. “What I’ve learned is you’ve got to go up and hit the ball with confidence. That’s really the key, I think, to my serve.” A potential second-round sectional match with Batavia standout Ryan Sterling could determine whether King will earn a spot in next week’s state tournament field. Regardless of how the weekend unfolds, Tsang projects King will blossom into a much more dominant force in the coming years. “Some things I think he needs to improve is getting more consistency, getting more of his first serves, being able to attack the ball a little bit earlier,” Tsang said. “He’s still learning some of the tactics in terms of working the point and making sure that every shot

that he makes is a meaningful shot.” While King is an on-thebubble candidate to qualify for the state tournament, the Cadets’ No. 1 doubles team of John Graft and Rettig is a relatively safe bet. The tandem has lost only once this season and recently won the top doubles draw at the Suburban Christian Conference tournament. Rettig, a Sugar Grove resident who plans to play club tennis next year at Boston College, is on the verge of qualifying for the state tournament with his third different partner in three years. Graft, whose father attended Marmion, makes the 45-minute trek to school from Barrington, and opted to make his schedule even more harried this spring by running distance events for the Cadets’ track team in addition to playing tennis. “It is a pretty crazy schedule but I had fun and I liked it,” Graft said. “I had success in track and tennis. It’s going to be fun because I’m running in a race June 8th, the Midwest Distance Festival, so I’m continuing my training but not running any meets and not running sectionals and state. I chose tennis [for the postseason].” Marmion won a sectional title last year for the first time in program history. The Cadets would need to spring an

upset or two to repeat that feat this weekend, with Naperville Central and Waubonsie Valley among the sectional’s leading contenders. “Marmion being a smaller school compared to the other big schools, I think we’ve made a big impression in the tennis community in terms of what these boys have accomplished,” Tsang said. “We’ve had several historical seasons, and I think there’s a great appreciation of the competition that we do have. Being able to perform the way we have is a great thing, so I’m really proud of this team and looking forward to a great weekend.”

PREP ROUNDUP

Kaneland softball blanks DeKalb, wins conference The KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE MAPLE PARK – Kaneland pitcher Ellissa Eckert dominated the DeKalb softball team Thursday, lifting the Knights to a Northern Illinois Big 12 East title-clinching, 4-0 win. The senior didn’t allow a base runner until the fourth inning, when DeKalb’s Sabrina Killeen finally broke through with a single. By the time DeKalb reached base, the Knights (21-3, 9-1 NI Big 12 East), who won their second straight conference title outright with the win, were already ahead, 3-0. Lexi Roach singled and scored on an error in the first inning to open the scoring for the Knights. The junior reached base on a bunt in the third inning and scored on a wild pitch before Paige Kuefler drove in Allyson O’Herron with a double. Lanie Callaghan homered in the sixth inning, and Eckert’s performance along with a great defensive showing gave

the Knights a shutout. “I thought she pitched the ball phenomenal, best game she’s ever pitched for us today,” Kaneland coach Brian Willis said. “She’s not going to blow people away, we know that, she’s not going to get 100 strikeouts a game, but she’s going to throw strikes, and you can see how good our defense is. When [teams] put the ball in play, our defense has been outstanding.” Eckert replaced Delani Vest, who now plays for Northern Illinois, in the circle this season. Even though she had quite an act to follow, Eckert has made a name for herself. “It’s hard coming back after [Vest], but it’s nice to know that I just helped keep the team going,” said Eckert, who only allowed five hits. “I felt awesome today.”

St. Charles North 14, Streamwood 1 (5 inn.): At Streamwood, Erin Nemetz (four RBIs) and Kaitlyn Waslawski (three RBIs) drove in half of the runs for North (21-5, 16-2 Upstate

Eight Conference River), while Mickey Goetz and Emily Brodner added home runs for the North Stars. Geneva 9, Yorkville 7: At Yorkville, Geneva (14-15) rallied for four runs in the top of the seventh inning to defeat Yorkville. The Vikings’ Madison Keith homered while Amanda Ebert notched three hits and two RBIs.

BASEBALL Batavia 4, Streamwood 3 (9 inn.): At Streamwood, Batavia clinched at least a share of the UEC River title with an extra inning win. Micah Coffey’s sacrifice fly to the warning track scored Laren Eustace in the top of the ninth, and Austin Van Kempen retired the Sabres on three pitches in the bottom of the ninth. Van Kempen pitched the eighth and ninth innings to get the win in relief of starter Austin Shanahan. Batavia (256, 19-6 UEC River) swept the three-game series after scoring single runs in the sixth and

seventh innings to send the game into extra innings. St. Charles East 12, Larkin 4: At St. Charles, Anthony Sciarrino and Ben Smith each had three hits and Sean Dunne and Joe Hoscheit hit two-run doubles as East (21-10, 18-6 UEC River) stayed alive in the conference race by sweeping Streamwood. The Saints need to beat host St. Charles North in a resumed game today to tie Batavia. The East-North game was stopped in a scoreless tie with two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning. The game will be resumed at 4:30 p.m. today.

A special prom for residents with special needs KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE neighbors@kcchronicle.com BATAVIA – As another school year draws to a close, high school students across the Fox Valley area participated in a longstanding tradition: prom. For many students, prom is a rite of passage, complete with tulle and tuxedos. Yet, for individuals with special needs, attending prom might not have been possible. On May 10, the Fox Valley Special Recreation Association, which provides leisure services for residents with disabilities, hosted its own prom at Batavia High School. For some, the dance was a chance to relive the excitement of their own high school prom, but for others the expe-

rience was brand new. “It was a magical evening for our participants,” said Sandy Blondin, superintendent of recreation for the Fox Valley Special Recreation Association, in a news release. “Free from the worry of judgment or bullying, dressed in their best outfits and surrounded by friends, everyone felt like prom royalty. Hopefully, this marks the beginning of a new tradition for [Fox Valley Special Recreation Association].” With more than 100 attendees, the Fox Valley Special Recreation Association prom included a sit-down dinner, a disc jockey, dancing and portrait photography. For more information about the Fox Valley Special Provided photo Recreation Association, visit Katie Brems of Geneva and Dusty Dickens of Sugar Grove were crowned at the Fox Valley Special Recreation Associwww.fvsra.org. ation prom for residents with special needs.

‘The Fabulous Fifties’ By Arvid Homuth, a St. Charles resident

We met at the corner drug store, Where us teens would like to gather. Some sat to chatter on still more, While like us, we sat together.

We came to stop on town’s Main Street, Walking over to corner Drug Store We had a soda fountain treat. With talk, we knew each other more.

Listen to the nickelodeon Singer of fabulous fifties. Hold hands, and eye contact goes on With the varying melodies.

Leaving drug store, I went her way. Drive me home, she asked of me. At her parents’ home, she did stay. I spoke to them of her and me.

You came riding along with me In my merry convertible. Now you cuddle up close to me Lover’s lane was memorable.

What would happen if this went on. Would we be together more? Or could this be just all in fun, Never to visit any more.

State Street Dance Studio dancers to perform in music video KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE neighbors@kcchronicle.com GENEVA – Dancers from State Street Dance Studio, 9 N. Fourth St., Geneva, are participating in the filming of an international video shoot today in Aurora that will be distributed throughout Africa. Dancers at State Street Dance Studio feel honored to be selected for the international project, states a news release. An audition took place to select dancers of all ethnicities, both pre-professional and professional, from the surrounding Chicagoland area. Many people are involved in the international video shoot, including Tony-winning Broadway writer and choreographer, Otis Sallid; international author and speaker Michelle McKinney Hammond; Emmy-winning Geneva producer and owner of forword.tv Nancy Hanna; and owner and choreographer of State Street Dance Studio Linda Cunningham, states the release.

They worked to produce a music video version of McKinney Hammond’s song, “ONE,” written to inspire prayer for the unity of Africa. It all started when Hanna went to Africa to help develop a new TV series for McKinney Hammond in February. She came home with the song and played it for Cunningham. They both agreed it would make an exciting music video, states the release. Meanwhile, back in Africa, McKinney Hammond played the song for her colleague, who thought it would make an amazing video, too. Forword.tv and State Street Dance Studio will send off the footage to Otis Sallid, who will use it with his footage from Africa with McKinney Hammond singing. The production of the video takes place at 2:30 p.m. By Bridget Christianson today at the Paramount TheDancers from State Street Dance Studio in Geneva rehearse for a music video performance being filmed atre in Aurora. State Street Dance Studio today in Aurora. offers classes for adults and children in a variety of dances, including jazz, ballet, theater dance, tap, hip hop and ballroom.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAYS

– United Feature Syndicate

There’s a strong possibility you’ll be offered a chance to join an exciting new business opportunity. Be sure it can deliver before you participate. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Your leadership qualities will be quite evident to your colleagues. Don’t be surprised if they look to you for direction.

A year after death, Chuck Brown still missed By HAMIL R. HARRIS and J. FREEDOM DU LAC The Washington Post The Godfather is gone. Daddy is gone, too. When those realities collide onstage – during performances by Chuck Brown’s band, without the Godfather of Go-Go, who died one year ago – Takeesa “KK” Donelson often breaks down. “I get so emotional, I start crying,” said Donelson, a go-go rapper who spent years sharing a stage with her famous father. “I have to walk off, get myself together and come back – every time we perform.” Chuck Brown died May 16, 2012, of complications from sepsis during a long hospitalization for pneumonia. He was 75, a local legend, the progenitor of a homespun strain of funk that became the sound of black Washington. His fans lost a cultural icon. His family lost a husband, a dad, a provider. A year later, one group is getting on better than the other. “Everybody who connected with Chuck misses him,” said Darryl Brooks, a concert promoter who was close to Brown. “But for the family, it’s like somebody taking the foundation from under you. I pray for them.” Before he became ill last year, Brown was everywhere, maintaining a full schedule of performances and public appearances. Demand for his services – and songs – was robust: He earned $235,000 to $285,000 annually, according to documents filed in Maryland with the Prince George’s County Register of Wills. “He was working all the time, and he loved it,” said his manager, Tom Goldfogle. “Working was his life.” Brown is still being mourned and celebrated. A tribute band, including many of Brown’s old bandmates, will perform some of his songs next Thursday – the anniversary of his death – at the Howard Theatre in Washington. A second concert is scheduled for Friday at Rams Head in Annapolis, Md. They’ll do “Bustin’ Loose” and “Go Go Swing” and “Run Joe” and most of the rest of Brown’s best-known songs, just as they’ve done multiple times since he died, usually at the Howard, where Brown had shined shoes before finding stardom with his own sound.

Chuck Brown and his wife, Jocelyn, in May 2009. Wiley Brown, who moved home from Virginia Tech University to look after his grieving mother, will sing some of his father’s parts. During his career, Brown projected an image of wealth. He bought his own limousine, wore alligator shoes and tailored suits and sometimes draped fur coats over his shoulders. The singer and his wife owned at least two homes, in Waldorf and Brandywine, Md. But Brown did not necessarily die rich, the court filings show. An inventory filed with the county lists just $53,000 in personal property – the market value of his shares in Raw Venture Records and Tapes and Swing T Publishing. (Raw Venture was Brown’s record label and also handled his live performance fees. Swing T licensed a fraction of Brown’s compositions, including his signature hit, “Bustin’ Loose,” and “Hot in Herre,” Nelly’s hip-hop smash, which used the “Bustin’ Loose” hook.) Brown owed more than $75,000 to creditors at the time of his death, most of it to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore for his care, according to the filings. “Financially, my father was oldschool; he believed in putting money in a box,” said Nekos Brown, one of the singer’s five surviving adult children. The estate is being managed by Brown’s widow, Jocelyn, who has struggled since her husband’s death, the fam-

ily said. “They were [together] for 27 years,” Nekos Brown said. “You can’t replace that.” She has maintained a low profile since Aug. 22, when she joined the family to accept a Chuck Brown Day proclamation from Washington Mayor Vincent Gray. Monday night, the old band convened for rehearsal in an industrial section of Hyattsville, Md., by the John Hanson Highway. Brown had practiced at Perfect Sound Studio for more than two decades; it still felt like home. “It’s very different; he was the soul of everything that we did,” said vocalist Donnell Floyd. “The first couple of months after he died was really hard. The grieving process takes time. As time goes by, it will get better. But anytime you play his music, you feel something.” Some of the deacons of go-go – leaders of other bands that thrived in Chuck Brown’s wake – came through, to figure out how they’d fit into the tributes. Everybody wanted to perpetuate the legacy. Nobody was sure it was possible. “It definitely feels like a void,” said “Sweet” Cherie Mitchell-Argus, a longtime keyboardist in Brown’s band. “It’s like James Brown’s band without James Brown. But we are trying.” Then, Chuck Brown’s band played on, without Chuck Brown, keeping his go-go beat going.

RVs need extra room to roam on the road Dear Abby: It’s vacation time again, time to hit the road in the RV. Please make your readers aware that people driving motorhomes, towing fifth-wheel trailers and travel trailers CANNOT stop as quickly as a small car or truck. When people cut in front of an RV or a large truck and slam on their brakes, it puts many people’s lives in danger. There is a reason we leave that large space between our RV and the vehicle in front of us. It provides us room to stop as well as the ability to see what’s happening in the traffic ahead. The bottom line is: Be safe. Be courteous. Drive like your life and the lives of others are in your control because it is literally true. – Happy Camper, Pasco, Wash. Dear Happy Camper: Too many motorists don’t realize that it’s impossible to stop suddenly while pulling a load that weighs several tons. A word to the wise ... Dear Abby: A woman here at work constantly asks to borrow money. The first time she did it, she caught me off guard and I gave her $20. The second time she sent me an email asking for a loan, I replied that I only had a few dollars.

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips Five other people in our department have told me she has hit them up too. To be fair, she did return the $20 I loaned her, but isn’t this akin to a hostile work environment? We all avoid her because we know she’ll ask for money, but we also have to work with her every day. Is there anything we can do short of ganging up on her and telling her to leave us all alone? – Also Feeling the Pinch in Utah Dear Also Feeling the Pinch: The next time the woman asks for a loan, tell her you’re not in the loan business, and that you’re not the only one who feels put upon. Suggest that unless she wants to become an outcast she will stop asking for money because it has made everyone uncomfortable. If she persists after that, report what she’s doing to HR as a group. Dear Abby: I have a friend who was raised Catholic. I’m not Catholic, and every time I attend a

wedding or funeral for one of her family members I feel uncomfortable and awkward. I often sit in the very back pew to go unnoticed. The Catholic Church offers beautiful, unique customs that I am simply ignorant about – like when to sit, kneel, recite, take bread, etc. I feel if I don’t comply with customs at these events, I might come off as rude or disrespectful. On the other hand, if I do try, my ignorance may appear just as rude and disrespectful. What is the right thing to do in situations like these? I want to be respectful of any religion. – Mannerly in Indiana Dear Mannerly: No rule of etiquette demands that you participate in the rituals of another person’s religion. If you feel uncomfortable sitting while others kneel or stand, then follow their lead. Or, continue to sit quietly at the back of the church as you are doing, which is perfectly acceptable. However, only members of the congregation in good standing should take communion. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

ECG is gold standard for evaluating chest pain Dear Doctor K: I recently had an electrocardiogram and my doctor gave me a copy of the tracing. Can you tell me what I’m looking at? Dear Reader: When the 20th century began, more than 100 years ago, doctors had no way of looking inside the body of a living person. Yet we knew from autopsies of people who had died that all of the normally invisible internal organs could become diseased. So the search was on for ways to “see” inside the body. The idea was simple: If you could spot a problem with an internal organ, you might be able to treat it and prevent future suffering. The discovery of X-rays began what has become a dramatic improvement in our ability to make internal organs visible. X-rays could see how large the heart was. They also allowed doctors to draw some conclusions about how well the heart was working. For example, X-rays could see if blood was building up in the lungs (which happens in heart failure). At about the same time as the discovery of X-rays, doctors invented another way of “seeing” the heart: the electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG). The heart works by producing, and responding

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff to, electrical signals. The ECG measures those signals. It has become the most widely used test for detecting heart problems, as it’s easy to perform, noninvasive and produces results right away. If you seek medical attention because of chest pain, shortness of breath or other symptoms that suggest a possible heart attack, you’ll almost certainly get an ECG. When you undergo an ECG, you lie down as a technician applies electrodes, or leads, to your chest, arms and legs. These leads pick up the electrical signals being given off by your heart. There are multiple leads in different positions, reading the signals from different parts of your heart. This enables doctors to find the location of possible heart damage. The ECG produces a reading, or tracing, of the electrical activity that occurs with each heartbeat. That tracing is a series of wavy black lines. The four chambers of the heart

need to beat in a coordinated fashion. They do so as the result of electrical signals caused and transmitted by special heart cells. If your heart is beating normally, the whole cycle takes about one second. (I’ve put an illustration on my website, AskDoctorK.com, showing how an ECG tracing corresponds with the phases of a heartbeat.) By evaluating the ECG tracing, doctors can spot an irregular heartbeat (an arrhythmia), find out whether your heart is enlarged, identify a part of your heart that is not getting enough blood, and even detect the signs of damage from an old heart attack. The ECG is crucial for evaluating chest pain. ECG abnormalities are often enough to diagnose a heart attack that’s in progress, allowing doctors to begin treatment. Thank goodness for the Dutch physician, Willem Einthoven, who developed the ECG; he richly deserved the Nobel Prize that he received in 1924.

Numbers don’t lie Dr. Wallace: All you ever say about alcohol consumption is, “Teens, don’t drink alcohol, and if you do, stop.” Are you aware that all those who drink sensibly can enjoy the relaxing feeling after a tedious day at work or at school? I’m an 18-year-old guy and have been drinking socially for over two years with my parents. I’ve consumed a fair amount of alcohol in my short life, and I’m proud to say that I have never been drunk. That’s because I was taught to consume alcohol sensibly. My parents have never ever had a problem because they consume alcohol and neither have I. Please stop telling teens about the “evils” of alcohol. Start telling them the joys of unwinding after a stressful fling. – Mike, Nashua, N.H. Dear Mike: There is nothing sensible about the consumption of alcohol! The world would be a better, safer place if alcohol didn’t exist. Alcohol originally was consumed for warmth, but it eventually evolved into the most abused drug on earth and has destroyed countless lives. I think your parents made a terrible mistake introducing you to alcohol at the impressionable age of 16. Alcohol consumption can do much more than offer a relaxing feeling after a tedious day. Please allow me to present some numbers, courtesy of the booklet, “Alcohol and the Teenage Drinker,” by Life Skills Education. After reading the numbers, you will understand why I encourage, and will continue to encourage our teen readers to avoid this powerful and addictive drug. Alcohol by the numbers: 1. Two out of five murders, one out of

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace three suicides, two out of five assaults and three out of five cases of child abuse are connected to the use of alcohol. 2. One out of two deaths by fire and one out of three deaths by drowning are alcohol-related, as are two out of five home accidents. 3. 25,000 Americans die in alcohol-related crashes every year. 4. 800,000 automobile crashes occur yearly as a result of drinking and driving. 5. One out of two “in-patients” in city hospitals is there because of an alcohol-related problem. 6. The diseases of alcoholism are the third leading cause of deaths in the United States. 7. There are an estimated 10 million alcoholics in the United States today. 8. Alcoholics live 10 to 12 fewer years than non-alcoholics. 9. 8,000 young adults are dying in automobile crashes caused by alcohol every year. 10. Three out of five young people ages 16 to 24 who were killed in an automobile crash died because someone consumed alcohol. These crashes are the leading cause of death among the 16 to 24 age group. 11. 40,000 young adults are seriously injured by alcohol-related crashes every year. Mike, these shocking figures are sobering! Don’t you now agree? • Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers. Although he is unable to reply to all of them individually, he will answer as many as possible in this column. Email him at rwallace@galesburg.net.

SUDOKU

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

• Friday, May 17, 2013

CELEBRITY CIPHER

What does it mean if, after opener begins with one notrump, responder bids two clubs, Stayman, then rebids three of a minor? As is so often true in bridge, the answer depends on something else in your methods. In this case, do you transfer into the minors? If you do not, tune in tomorrow. If you do transfer into the minors, though, this sequence shows a four-card major, five-plus in the bid minor, and either fear for three no-trump or thoughts of a slam. In this deal, if South had rebid two hearts, North would have jumped to three no-trump. But when South denied a major, it became possible that five diamonds would make when three no-trump would fail because the defenders would take the first five tricks in hearts. Here, though, South, because he disliked diamonds and had good holdings outside the suit, settled into three no-trump. West leads the heart six: seven, nine, jack. How should South continue? From both the Rule of Eleven and East’s third-hand-high play, South knows that West has a slew of hearts ready to run if East gets on lead to return a heart. So, East must be kept off play. This means that taking the diamond finesse is wrong. Instead, declarer should take two club finesses through East. After playing a spade to dummy’s 10, South runs the club eight. West wins with his jack and shifts to a diamond, but South puts up dummy’s ace and takes a second club finesse, netting an overtrick with this distribution.
