Coultrap demolition begins: ‘I have to accept that’ Geneva school district wants to create memorial for Harry Coultrap using parts of structure By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – After the first stage of demolition began Monday at the former Coultrap school, Glorianne Campbell went over and peeked through the construction fence. Campbell and her husband, Colin, had been staunch opponents of Geneva School District 304’s decision to raze the 90-year-old building at 1113 Peyton St., lobbying officials at meetings and speaking out in favor of preservation. But now, Campbell said, the focus is coming up with a plan to memorialize the building and the educator for whom it was named – Harry Coultrap, the district’s first superintendent. “The building can’t continue to stand and I have to accept that,” Glorianne Campbell said. “We will have something so people in the future will know Coultrap. I’m just sad. The quality of the materials that went into that building are exquisite, and they don’t build things like that any more.” Alpine Demolition Services of Batavia began the demolition process Monday, beginning work inside the building to get it ready for razing. Officials said in a week or two, giant claws attached to excavators will take chunks of the building out until it is completely gone. Demolition is expected to be completed before the start of the 2013-14 school year. “When it actually starts to happen, maybe I don’t want to watch,” Campbell said. “I’ll see when the time comes.” ••• When the original Coultrap building opened as Geneva High School in 1923, it had a principal, nine teachers, one secretary, two or three telephones and room for 300 students, according to a history of the school. It was converted to a junior high in the 1970s and then into an elementary school in the 1990s before being closed in 2009 so its students could attend the new Williamsburg Elementary School. The Superintendent’s Facility Task Force recommended

Demolition of the Coultrap facility – which has served as a high school, junior high school and elementary school – began Monday. the building be demolished and school officials affirmed that, saying the building was too expensive to keep or maintain. Renovation and repair estimates were $2.3 million to $4.3 million and it cost almost $70,000 a year just to keep it open. If the district wanted to bring the school back up to standards as an attendance center, it would cost $16 million, officials said. The school’s problems were

many: A leaking roof that wicks water through the brick itself and caused ceiling tiles to fall, mold to grow, plaster to dissolve and rust to thrive on doorways. Other problems included failing wiring and window leaks. The school board in April approved awarded a $140,200 bid to have the asbestos removed and approved a contract with Alpine for $545,900 for the demolition. •••

School Board President Mark Grosso said the district is not only working toward creating a proper memorial for Coultrap, but also will rededicate its administration center at 227 Fourth St. as the Coultrap Educational Services Center in honor of Harry Coultrap. “It’s sad to see the building be razed, but we are going to use some parts of the facility for the memorial. That is our plan,” Grosso said. “Everyone is sad to see the old facility go.”

Grosso said he took Paul Coultrap, Harry’s grandson, on a tour of the administration building. Paul Coultrap would be among those invited for the rededication ceremony to be held sometime this summer before the new school year starts, Grosso said. “We brought him out to see the portrait of Harry at Fourth Street,” Grosso said. “He was very enthused about it being renamed.”

NORTH AURORA

Police investigate 5 ‘Drano bombs’

Residents gather together for parade

By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com NORTH AURORA —The North Aurora Police Department is investigating five “Drano bomb” incidents that have occurred on the village’s west side in the past week, police said. Drano bombs are explosive devices made out of plastic bottles and household chemicals, such as Drano or other pipe clog remover, where a chemical reaction creates enough pressure to explode the bottle, police said. There were no injuries in any of the incidents. But North Aurora Deputy Chief Scott Buziecki said in an email that these devices, while homemade, can be dangerous as their explosion could cause serious injuries such as acid burns or the loss of a finger. Anyone who finds one of these devices should back away and call 911, police said. Buziecki said in an email that police are not sure whether the Drano bombs are the work of a group or one person, but they are probably random, and he does not know whether similar incidents are occurring in other areas. “This is the first time I can remember in 17 years” of “Drano bombs” being set off in neighborhoods, Buziecki said. The first incident occurred about 4:20 a.m. Saturday, May 25, in the 700 block of Magnolia Drive. The resident reported that someone banged on his front and back door, but when he made it to the door, three bombs went off – one near the front porch, one on the side of the house, and one on the back porch. The second and third incidents occurred at about 4:45 a.m. Saturday in the 1400 block of Oakland Circle. Both homeowners reported hearing explosions but didn’t look outside. Later in the morning, they discovered exploded bombs on their front porches. One of the homes sus-

By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com NORTH AURORA – North Aurora resident Kelly Brizzolara and her 3-year-old daughter, Brooklyn, wanted to catch all of the fire engines and floats in Sunday’s North Aurora Community Parade. So they staked out a prime spot at the corner of Lincolnway and State Street to watch. “My sister just lives around the corner,” Brizzolara said. Brooklyn liked seeing the dancers from North Aurora-based Moves Dance Studio. “We saw some of her sister’s friends there,” Brizzolara said. The theme of this year’s parade, hosted by the North Aurora Mothers Club, was “One Village, Many Faces.” For Randy Olson, the parade created a sense of community. He and his two children, Haley, 7, and Daniel, 6, didn’t mind the cool weather as they waited for the parade to begin. The fun didn’t stop with the parade. The North Aurora River District Alliance sponsored a post-parade party at Island Park, featuring a petting zoo, rubber duck race and other activities.

tained damage to the overhead garage door as if it had been kicked or struck by an object. The damage was estimated at around $500. The fourth incident occurred Saturday in the 1400 block of Oakland Circle. The homeowner did not hear an explosion but returned home around noon to discover an exploded Drano bomb on her front porch. The fifth incident was reported Monday in the 100 block of Hidden Creek, but happened last week and involved two more bombs. All of the bottles used were small, 16 ounces or similar. All incidents remain under investigation by the North Aurora Police Department. Investigators ask that citizens be on the lookout for: • Unusual behavior from teenagers or young adults, such as creeping around property of others in the overnight and early morning hours. • Teenagers or young adults seeking access to chemicals such as Drano or other pipe clog removers, aluminum foil and plastic bottles. Anyone with information is asked to call North Aurora police detectives at 630-8978705 ext. 610. Anonymous tips can be left by calling 630-8978705 and choosing option 3.

ST. CHARLES

Council OKs church expansion

Aldermen express Students honored unease with D-303 for $800 donation

By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com

ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles school board’s unwillingness to uphold an agreement to split the cost of traffic improvements near St. Charles North High School has damaged its relationship with the St. Charles City Council, based on comments Aldermen made Monday in committee. “It concerns me how we deal with them in the future,” 5th Ward Alderman Ed Bessner said. “Very much so,” 4th Ward alderman Jo Krieger added. The City Council on April 1 approved an intergovernmental agreement with St. Charles School District 303 that stated the parties would split about $500,000 in construction costs for intersection improvements – a traffic light and right-turn lane – at North High School and Red Gate Road. City administration believed District 303

would do the same, but the school board rejected the agreement in May. Some school board members said the improvements were the city’s responsibility and that St. Charles made the mistake of not installing a traffic light when it built Red Gate Bridge, which opened in December. The city awarded a construction contract based on prior discussions with the district, City Council’s approval and the desire to have a traffic signal running in time for the start of the next school year. Work on the project has already begun. Thursday, a school board committee recommended the district fund the right-turn lane at a cost of $125,000, leaving the rest of the $570,000 total bill – which includes professional fees – with the city. The Government Operations Committee on Monday approved the revised agreement. Only 2nd Ward Alderman Rita Payleitner voted no.

By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – Batavia will have a Fourth of July fireworks show thanks in part to the efforts of two Alice Gustafson Elementary School students. The Batavia City Council on Monday honored Rachel and Matthew Rempert, who raised $800 in donations through their school. The city’s Fourth of July fireworks show, now in its 63rd year, is funded solely through private donations. “I want to thank you for stepping forward and really showing some quality citizenship,” Batavia Mayor Jeff Schielke said to the two of them as he presented them with certificates of congratulations. In February, the Batavia Access Fireworks Committee announced it had to raise $50,000 by May 1 or the show would be canceled. Fourth Ward Alder-

man Susan Stark, who is on the committee, said Monday that close to $30,000 has been raised, but it has enough to pay for the fireworks. “We do need food vendors and volunteers,” Stark said. Donations may be made by going to the fireworks committee’s website, www. bataviafireworks.org.

GENEVA – The Geneva City Council unanimously approved a special-use permit for Fox Valley Presbyterian Church’s expansion plans Monday, after the church and a neighbor worked out their concerns. Aldermen acting as the Committee of the Whole last week approved the church’s expansion plans on the condition that it work out some issues with a residential neighbor regarding noise and privacy. An agreement was reached that the church would install an open-style wrought aluminum fence around the eastern boundary. The church, at 227 East Side Drive, proposes to demolish its existing 6,280-square-foot, one-story education area and build a 10,480-square-foot, one-story addition in its place, a net gain of 4,200 square feet. The church needed a special permit because it is considered a nonconforming use under the city’s zoning code. Andrew Mayer, of the 800 block of Longmeadow Drive, said he was concerned about more noise and the increased use of the church by a second congregation. “We were interested in being good neighbors, and I think we were able to come to a mutual agreement that addressed his concerns,” said the Rev. Bart Roush, pastor of adult ministries at the church. Fox Valley Presbyterian also hosts a Latino congregation, Fruto de Vida, translated as Fruit of Life, with about 200 members. “They worship in our sanctuary and use the building for music classes and Bible study,” Roush said. “That was one of the other concerns – I don’t always know who is supposed to be back there,” Mayer said. “The solution was to erect the fence to make sure the people who are there are supposed to be there.”

Parents offer support to fired St. Peter principal By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – On the last day of school Monday, a handful of parents stood in the parking lot of St. Peter Catholic School in Geneva, waiting for Principal Roseann Feldmann. Feldmann had been fired after five years as the school’s principal, and the parents of students at the school were waiting to help Feldmann pack her personal things into her car. Joan Bettag, 44, of Maple Park, said many parents were outraged at the firing of Feldmann, a popular principal. “For over 15 years at this school, all five of our children have gone here,” Bettag said. “Benjamin just finished fourth grade, and next year, he’s going to St. Mary’s in Sycamore.” Bettag said Feldmann’s contract allowed her to be at the school through June 30, but on the last day of school, the Rev. Martins C. Emeh told her to clean out her personal items and leave. Bettag and other moth-

Emeh did not return a voicemail message, email or respond to a business card left at the rectory. Bettag said many parents wrote letters to the Rockford Diocese in an attempt to get the firing re-

versed – to no avail. “The diocese cannot comment on the situation because it is a parish personnel issue,” Diocese spokeswoman Penny Wiegert said. An emotional Feldmann said she was told March 19 that her contract was not being renewed. “It’s amazing. Today was

Hey what’s the

an amazing day,” Feldmann said. “It should be one of the saddest in my life, but the support parents have given me ever since March 19, but especially Friday through today, was absolutely incredible – absolutely incredible. These people have made what should be one of the worst times in my life totally bearable.” Feldmann, who will turn 62 Wednesday, said she does not know where she will work next because school principal positions generally are already filled this late in the year. Feldmann said she has been an administrator in the Rockford Diocese for 14 years, including three years as assistant principal at St. Mary’s in DeKalb and six years as principal at St. Mary’s in Sycamore. Before becoming an administrator, Feldmann was a science teacher who co-authored six books on science, taught science methods at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb and wrote a science curriculum for a school district in Crystal

Lake. Elizabeth Bettag, 18, a St. Peter graduate, said she had Feldmann as principal for one year. She came out Monday to provide support. “She really made a positive impact on me,” Elizabeth Bettag said. “She just made a big impact, even in one year, with her kindness. She is willing to talk to anyone. She knows every kid in the school by name – 481 kids go here right now. She knows everyone by name, is very welcoming, very interested in how everyone’s day is going. She’s always been very supportive.” While the firing has prompted some parents to send their children elsewhere next year, others said they were still deciding what to do. Among the undecided was Robert Everett of North Aurora, whose daughter just finished third grade at St. Peter. “We are evaluating our options,” Everett said. “We felt that Ms. Feldmann embodied the characteristics of someone we wanted educating and molding our daughter.”

The mother of a 20-year-old detainee who died last year in the Kane County Jail has filed a lawsuit against the county and Sheriff Pat Perez. Keith D. Renfroe Jr., of Cottage Grove, Minn., was found lying face down and unresponsive in his cell May 19, 2012, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office at the time. Renfroe was transferred to Delnor Hospital in Geneva, where he was admitted to intensive care. Renfroe died May 24 after he was removed from life support, officials said. The lawsuit, filed late last month by Lashawnda Renfroe, accuses Perez and jail personnel of not monitoring Renfroe properly. The suit seeks in excess of $50,000. “Kane County had him in their custody,” said David Robertson, Renfroe’s attorney. “He

was in a cell by himself. Obviously, I don’t know the mindset of the correctional officers at that time, I don’t Pat Perez know what they were or were not doing. These are all questions that need to be answered.” Perez said he could not comment on pending litigation. Renfroe was arrested by Gilberts police on charges of felony trespass to a residence May 18. He was held on $15,000 bond and was to appear in court May 25 – the day after he was removed from life support. According to court records, Renfroe entered a residence in the 200 block of Rockville Lane in Gilberts by breaking a front window, knowing that there were people in the house, and remained there, refusing to leave until police were called. The parties are scheduled to appear in court Aug. 15.

Celebrating the end

Sherman Hospital now officially part of Advocate system ELGIN – Beginning this week, Sherman Hospital will have a new name and a new affiliation, as a unit within the Advocate Health Care system. Late last week, Sherman Health officially joined Advocate, becoming Advocate Sherman Hospital in the process. The name change comes as the latest step in the work to integrate Sherman into the Advocate group, the largest such system of hospitals and health providers in the state and one of the largest health care systems in the country. The work began last fall when Sherman’s leaders signed a letter of intent to partner with Oak Brookbased Advocate, which already operates several other hospitals in Chicago’s suburbs, including Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove and Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. The merger was approved by state regulators this spring. Before choosing to affiliate with Advocate, Sherman’s directors also had mulled a competing affiliation offer from Winfield-based Cadence Health,

However, Sherman opted for Advocate “to be part of a nationally recognized and larger regional hospital system,” a spokeswoman for Advocate Sherman said. She said the merger would help Sherman “provide better care at lower costs for more people” and would help the hospital reduce operating costs and capital costs. She said the plan for reducing those costs would “be determined in the coming months as we work through integration.” In a release announcing the name change, Advocate Sherman said the full integration of Sherman into the Advocate system would occur over the next two years. The release stated that by mid-June signs at Sherman’s main campus on Randall Road at Big Timber Road would reflect the new name, and signs at additional Sherman locations gradually would be changed in the next six to 12 months. The Advocate Sherman spokeswoman said staffing levels at Sherman would “remain mostly unchanged,” though “a few positions will be consolidated across the system.”

OPINIONS ANOTHER VIEW

Crop circles THE WASHINGTON POST The details of federal food and agriculture policy have always been notoriously complex. The politics, though, have not. Every five years, Congress passed a farm bill that represented a deal between urban and rural states. The city folk got food stamps to help the urban poor (and the grocery chains that sell to them) and the rural folk got subsidies for commodity producers, as well as the boost in demand from food stamps. A few urban reformers would ritualistically protest handouts to wealthy farmers; a few rural conservatives would protest handouts to the dependent poor. But, in the end, a deal got done. That’s starting to change. The rise of a Republican-majority House tilted toward the tea party, coupled with the doubling of food-stamp spending since the Great Recession, has set off a movement to curtail that $80 billion-a-year program. The House Agriculture Committee’s proposed renewal of the farm bill includes a $20 billion food-stamp cut over the next 10 years. “We represent the people’s money, and we have to be good stewards of that,” said committee member Rep. Stephen Fincher, R-Tenn. Never mind that Fincher received a $70,000 farm subsidy in 2012, according to the Environmental Working Group. (Through a spokeswoman, Fincher declined comment.) Meanwhile, members of both parties are looking for ways to reduce deficits, and subsidies for agribusinesses that are booming as never before are a logical place to start. President Obama’s 2014 budget proposal trimmed agriculture by $37.8 billion over 10 years.

In fairness, the bill for which Fincher voted echoed Obama’s proposal to some extent, ending the $3 billion-ayear direct payment program from which the congressman benefited. However, it would install a deeply subsidized crop insurance program that could cost even more – and create all sorts of market distortions. Expanded subsidized crop insurance is also the centerpiece of the farm bill moving through the Senate, which contains only $4.1 billion in food-stamp reductions. Parts of the Senate bill do count as reform, relatively speaking – crop insurance subsidies are limited for farmers making more than $750,000; farmers who take insurance must participate in soil conservation. In the end, Congress may fail to pass a bill due to differences between the House and Senate over how much to cut food stamps. That happened last year; as a result, the country is operating under a oneyear extension of the old law. Old Washington hands may take another farm bill failure as a sign of dysfunction, but what’s really dysfunctional is dealing with these issues through interest-group logrolling rather than on their merits. People can debate how much help the poor should get and whether it’s optimal to deliver aid in the form of food stamps. But it’s beyond debate – or should be – that government has a role to play in helping them. By contrast, U.S. farmers are wealthy enough to take care of themselves and have been for many years. There’s no argument – beyond the spurious specter of food shortages – for propping them up with taxpayer money. The sooner Congress starts making policy with those truths in mind, the better.

STC East defeats Downers Grove South, moves on to state tourney By DENNIS D. JACOBS

IHSA Class 4A Softball State Finals

editorial@kcchronicle.com ROSEMONT – Monday’s supersectional softball game at The Ballpark at Rosemont got off to a very late start, but the wait was well worth it for St. Charles East. The Saints (32-5) defeated Downers Grove South, 6-3, to advance to the state tournament for only the second time in the school’s history and the first as St. Charles East. “It’s very exciting,” East leftfielder Katie Kolb said. “I honestly truly believe we wanted it more than anyone.” How badly the Saints wanted it was tested even before the game started as they endured a prolonged wait for their opponent to arrive. The Mustangs were caught in a traffic jam on the Tri-State Tollway caused by a truck hitting an overpass and did not arrive in their dugout until 4:40 p.m., 10 minutes after the game’s scheduled start time. Both teams still had to go through mandatory pre-game warmups and the first pitch was not thrown until 5:25 p.m. After a pair of scoreless innings, the Saints erupted for four runs in the top of the third. Center fielder Tess Hupe began the rally with a one-out bunt single. East got another base runner when Downers Grove South shortstop Jessica Andree couldn’t make a backhand play on Olivia Lorenzini’s hard grounder. With two outs, Kolb beat out a slow roller to second to drive in the first run of the game. It was the second of three hits Kolb had in the contest. “I’ve been in a slump lately, but … my team’s always there supporting me,” Kolb said. “I’m very lucky to have the team I have.” East first baseman Kate Peterburs then drilled a pitch from Mustang freshman Caroline Hedgcock (15-8) deep to center for a triple that scored two runs.

St. Charles East’s Mackenzie Meadows celebrates with teammates during a Class 4A super-sectional game against Downers Grove South Monday at Rosemont Stadium in Rosemont. The Saints won, 6-3. “That was wild,” Peterburs said. “I really needed that hit because my first [at-bat] I struck out. … I had a lot of anger in me. I had a lot of ‘I need to get this through.’ I took the first pitch and I was aggressive and hit it. I was really excited.” Sarah Collalti made it 4-0 with a sharp single to left. The Mustangs (22-11) repeatedly threatened in the middle innings, but East pitcher Haley Beno kept them in check with a little help from her defense and some Downers Grove South base running blunders. Kristin Lea doubled to open the bottom of the third and tried to go to third after Kristen Bialek beat out a grounder to short. Peterburs

alertly threw across the diamond to Alex Latoria, who tagged Lea out after she slid past the bag. The next inning, Hupe threw out Caitlyn Daly trying to stretch a single into a double and in the fifth the Mustangs failed to score despite having a runner on third and no one out. “When you slide on this [artificial] surface, you go a little farther than you would on dirt,” Downers Grove South coach Ron Havelka said. “That hurt a little bit and we had a runner at third, nobody out. We hit the ball. We got it out to the outfield, but not deep enough to score and sometimes that’ll come back to haunt you and it did a little bit.”

The Mustangs finally broke through with a pair of runs in the sixth on a pair of RBI groundouts from Daly and Hedgcock, but the Saints got a couple of big insurance runs in the top of the seventh. A hit batter, an error, and a bunt single by Lorenzini loaded the bases for Kolb and she singled up the middle to plate a pair. Kolb said she was motivated by the knowledge that Downers Grove South was capable of making a comeback. “If you look at Naperville Central, they came back and beat them coming back from 6-0 being down,” Kolb noted. “I just knew I had to help my team out a little more.” East coach Kelly Horan was also well aware of the Mustangs’ track record. “I liked how my kids responded to their two runs,” she said. “That was great. I was just really pleased with our overall attack at the plate and we played good defense when we needed to.” The Saints collected 11 hits, including two each from Hupe and Collalti. They did give up an unearned run in the bottom of the seventh, but Beno got a fly ball to right to end the game. Beno allowed seven hits, struck out five, and walked two to help send East to East Peoria to play Barrington at 3 p.m. Friday. “It’s pretty unbelievable,” Horan said. “These kids are going to come home with a trophy and their name is forever going to be in history at St. Charles East.”

IHSA CLASS 4A ROCKFORD SUPERSECTIONAL: ST. CHARLES EAST 7, JACOBS 2

By JAY SCHWAB jschwab@shawmedia.com

IHSA Class 4A Baseball State Finals Friday’s semifinals at Joliet’s Silver Cross Field Mt. Carmel vs. winner of today’s University of Illinois Supersectional, 3 p.m. St. Charles East vs. Libertyville, 5 p.m. Third-place game at 3 p.m. Saturday; championship game at 5:30 p.m. Jacobs right fielder Joe Rizzuto’s throw home bounded past catcher Greg Sidor. The Saints’ mid-game surge also included Nicholas Erickson daringly and successfully tagging up from third base on a one-out, Joe Hoscheit fly ball to shallow right field that was caught by backpedaling Jacobs second baseman Grant Kale in the fourth inning. “His momentum wasn’t coming home, second baseman typically on a regular high school team, that’s the guy that doesn’t have the best arm, so we said, hey, let’s take a chance,” East coach Len Asquini said.” … It worked this time. Next time it might not work so good and everyone’s

telling me I’m stupid.” Even East third baseman Sean Dunne – whose early errors helped Jacobs grab a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the second – found redemption, making a crowd-pleasing stab on a screaming liner from Sidor in the sixth inning that squirted out of Dunne’s mitt, but was snared an instant later before hitting the ground. Starai was a beast pitching with the lead, allowing only two baserunners – one of whom was caught stealing by catcher Adam Rojas – in the final five innings. “I always like to try and get

settled in and then really start finding the groove and attacking hitters,” Starai said. He was efficient, too, throwing 80 pitches on the night. That makes bringing him back on three days’ rest Friday against Libertyville a possibility, though senior lefty Nick Huskisson is another solid option. “We’ll take a look at it,” Asquini said. Right fielder Brannon Barry and Huskisson each had two hits for the Saints, who knocked Jacobs starter Reilly Peltier (4-1) out of the game in the fourth inning.

LOVES PARK – The St. Charles East baseball team put the capper on one of the most impressive days for Saints athletics in recent history. Hours after the St. Charles East softball team earned a state tournament berth in Rosemont, the Saints baseball team seized their moment along Interstate 90, too, defeating Jacobs, 7-2, in an IHSA Class 4A Rockford Supersectional. “There’s no better feeling than to be a Saint tonight,” East second baseman Jack Dellostritto said. East advances to Joliet’s Silver Cross Field for Friday’s 5 p.m. state semifinal against Libertyville, which beat Maine South, 5-3, in the first supersectional contested Monday at the Rockford Aviators’ stadium. Many of the Saints’ familiar postseason themes resurfaced – opportunistic offense, quality defense and another dynamite outing by Matt Starai. The senior right-hander continued what has been a superb senior season, improv-

ing to 10-1 on the spring with a complete game three-hitter, his second in a row this postseason. Jacobs coach Jamie Murray has been in the coaching ranks for 18 years and said Starai is near the top of the list of impressive arms he’s seen. “He was like a man out there today,” Murray said. “He’s a big-time guy.” East center fielder Anthony Sciarrino had a two out, RBI single to center field in the top of the second inning to give the Saints a 1-0 lead, and Sciarrino hit in good fortune as the game went on. In the third, after Dellostritto had tied the game at 2 with a two-out single of his own, Sciarrino came to the plate with two on and two outs. He lofted a fly ball to left-center that two Eagles seemed capable of snaring, but center fielder Nick Ledinsky failed to squeeze the ball, and a pair of Saints scored as East took the lead for good, 4-2. With the Saints (27-11) leading, 5-2, in the fifth and runners at second and third and one out, Sciarrino flew to right field for what shaped up as a routine sacrifice fly. Instead, two Saints raced home when

CLASS 3A ROCK ISLAND SUPERSECTIONAL: ST. FRANCIS 7, METAMORA 3

Spartans baseball heading to state By DAN TOMLIN editorial@kcchroncile.com MOLINE – Defense and timely hitting propelled the St. Francis baseball team to the IHSA State Tournament. The Spartans (24-11) won the 3A Rock Island Super-sectional 7-3 over Metamora (32-6), taking advantage of five Redbird errors to erase a 2-0 deficit and ensure the school’s first baseball trophy. St. Francis, which scored just three runs in its two sectional games, was in the almost unfamiliar position of having a cushion after Josh Croci doubled with the bases loaded to give the Spartans their first lead of the game. The bases loaded after Andrew Brundage singled to start the second frame and both Chris Smith and Jack Ciombor laid down sacrifice bunts that were fumbled. “Our bats had been struggling but we worked on it in practice and had better approaches today,” Croci said. “I knew the pitcher was a freshman and would be a little rattled with the bases loaded so I was just sitting fastball and he came inside.” Croci drilled Metamora freshman pitcher Geremy Guerrero’s fastball to the gap and the air went out of the Redbirds. Guerrero had been 9-0 coming into the contest. Metamora couldn’t duplicate Croci’s act, as the Redbirds stranded 11 total runners on base, nine of them in scoring position. Jack Petrando set the table a couple times, going 2 for 3 with a pair of RBI singles, while Brett Jungles also collected a pair of hits. “We pride ourselves on

our pitching and defense,” St. Francis coach Rich Janor said. “We’ve been down before so it wasn’t really panic mode after giving up those two runs in the first.” On the mound Jason Sullivan pitched beautifully. Although the sophomore didn’t strike out a Redbird, he also didn’t give up an earned run after the first, scattering 11 hits and getting solid glovework behind him. “In my mind, we have the best defense in the state,” Sullivan said. “I just had to keep my poise and be confident and let the guys behind me do the work.” Sullivan loaded the bases full of redbirds in the seventh, but Brundage came in to relieve him and was perfect again. It was the fourth straight game Brundage has come on in relief and slammed the door. The senior lefty got the next three batters out without incident to secure the Spartans a date Friday in the state semifinals. St. Francis will take on Grayslake Central in the semifinal at 10 a.m. Friday morning in Joliet at Silver Cross Field.

KANE COUNTY COUGARS

Golden homer not enough for Cougars

KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE

Turnstile report By KEVIN DRULEY The Cougars drew 3,087 fans to Fifth Third Bank Ballpark on Monday. Through 27 home dates, they’ve attracted 144,988 fans, compared to 127,548 through that point last season.

Sight seen

Cubs brass will be excited because Right fielder Reggie Golden, a second-round pick of the parent Cubs in 2010, was 2 for 4 with a solo home run. Golden is a recent call-up from extended spring training in Mesa, Ariz. He missed much of last season due to injury.

Cubs brass will cringe because Right-hander Lendy Castillo, who pitched with the Cubs last season, fell to 0-4 after entering in the sixth and failing to complete the inning. He allowed five runs – all earned – and walked four while allowing two hits.

The closer A lengthy closed-doors meeting followed this one. Lots of teams have lost series to the Kernels, but bookending this four-game set with lopsided defeats prompted action.

kdruley@shawmedia.com GENEVA – A few players wondered aloud before Monday’s game about the destination of the Cougars’ upcoming six-day road trip. Right fielder Reggie Golden quickly replied with “Tennessee,” which does not boast a Midwest League club. It is, however, the home of the parent Cubs’ Double-A affiliate. Advancement within the system understandably occupies players’ minds as the first full professional season for many nears its midway point. While the team results may still need a kick-start – a 10-4 loss against Cedar Rapids left the Cougars at 25-30 – a few players turned in head-turning individual efforts. Golden, who will travel with his teammates to Burlington and Cedar Rapids after today’s off day, pummelled the first pitch he saw into the trees beyond the left field fence for a second-inning homer. Call it progress for a former second-round pick (2010) eager to ascend after a left knee strain kept him on the disabled list for all but

seven games last season. “My adjustments are getting there. Getting there,” Golden said. “I’m still off a little bit, missing pitches that I’m supposed to drive, so I’m still trying to get that going.” Golden lockers a few stalls away from center fielder Albert Almora, last year’s first-round draft pick who decidedly has had little difficulty hitting anything. Almora entered Monday batting .475 in his first 10 MWL Mark Johnson games, with an on-base plus slugging percentage of 1.148. Almora, six weeks removed from his 19th birthday, singled in his first at-bat, creating further distance from about the only adversity he’s seen so far – an 0-for-5 day at the plate in Friday’s series opener. He went 2 for 4 Saturday and 3 for 4 Sunday and has enjoyed patrolling center at Fifth Third Bank ballpark. “You’ll find your holes in every field,” Almora said. “It plays good defensively, too, so it’s a good field to play on regardless.”

Monday’s game hinged on a rocky relief outing from Lendy Castillo, a converted infielder and Rule 5 draft pick who pitched with the Cubs last season. Now the piggyback partner of fellow righty Dillon Maples – who missed most of 2012 with a strained ligament in his throwing elbow – Castillo entered in the fifth with a 4-0 lead. He lasted just 2/3 of an inning, surrendering five runs – all earned – and two hits while walking four and striking out two. Cedar Rapids (36-20) jumped Justin Amlung for five runs in the next inning. Cougars pitching issued 10 walks. Maples remains in search of his first professional win after limiting the Kernels to two hits in five innings, striking out seven and walking three. “When you are at the almost 60-game mark and then you look at the schedule and they’ve got 80 more to go, I think it’s an eye-opener for some of these guys because they’ve never had that obstacle to overcome,” manager Mark Johnson said before the game. “I think they will adapt. They have to. It’s a sink or swim [atmosphere].”

HOFFMAN ESTATES – St. Charles North closed a banner boys volleyball season on Saturday, securing a third-place finish at the state tournament with a 25-20, 25-20 sweep of Glenbrook South. Making the program's first trip to state, North rebounded to finish its season with a victory while establishing a name for itself "We showed them that we really wanted to be here, really deserved to be here at state," senior middle hitter Zach Ziesmer said. North (32-7) rebounded from a 25-18, 25-21 loss to eventual state champion Downers Grove South in its semifinal Saturday morning. "We have to give them credit. That's probably the best team we've played all season long," North Stars senior defensive specialist Jimmy Vainisi said. "They got out to a tremendous start and kept that up the whole match." As has been the case throughout this entire breakthrough season, a balanced attack and a strong block carried the North Stars through the Glenbrook South match. Seniors Kevin Beach and Jonathan Orech entered tournament play with 246 kills apiece. After Beach (23 kills) and Orech (18) sparked the offense behind setter Pat Misiewicz in two matches Saturday, the final season tally worked out to 280 for Beach and 279 for Orech.

KOVELS: ANTIQUES AND COLLECTING

BY TERRY KOVEL KOVELS.COM Collectors like advertising signs and packages. In the 1950s when restaurants began decorating with old signs, they wanted material from the 19th century with graphics that featured husky women in period gowns and large hats or scenes with horse and buggies, high-wheel bicycles or old cars and buildings. But collectors and their collections got older, and by the 1980s, a younger group was buying advertising from the 1930s to ‘50s, with scenes of happy housewives wearing aprons while making cookies with their children or landscapes with new cars, airplanes or trains. While old advertising was expensive and hard to find, ‘50s pieces turned up at garage sales and flea markets for very low prices. Today there are collectors who hunt for recent rock posters, advertisements and packaging by artists like Andy Warhol or Peter Max. It is the design that catches the eye and attracts collectors. Some wonder if ads, packages and shop signs are going to be valuable in the future. Go back to the mid1800s, when store signs often were simply pictures because many people could not read. A cigar-store figure represented a shop that sold tobacco, and a cutout wooden board shaped like a shoe or a red and white barber pole were instantly recognized by customers. These signs are now classed as “folk art,” and many sell for thousands of dollars. Great graphics that tell a story, products that represent the past, and nostalgia keep advertising collectibles selling well, even though the ads are getting younger.

scene of a horse-drawn stagecoach with several men riding on top. It’s marked “Coaching Scenes, Made in England by Johnson Bros., a genuine hand engraving, all decoration under the glaze detergent & acid resisting colour, ironstone, Passing Through.” I would like to know what it could be worth.

*** Q: I am a retired U.S. Air Force sergeant. Sometime during my 20 years of service, I received a chrome-plated “Camp David” Zippo pocket lighter. The front has a black engraving of the camp’s entryway, with a rope-like circle around the image. I understand it has some value. True? A: Zippo lighters were first made in Bradford, Pa., in 1932. When smoking was more socially acceptable than it is now, lighters were popular souvenirs. The military, as well as U.S. presidents, purchased them to give as souvenirs to servicemen and visiting dignitaries. Camp David was built in the 1930s and was used as a presidential retreat starting in 1942. But it wasn’t called “Camp David” until 1953, when President Dwight David Eisenhower renamed the retreat after his grandson, David Eisenhower. Other marks on your lighter may help you date it. A lighter matching yours, made in 1972, is for sale online with its original box and insert. The asking price is $45. *** Q: My mother-in-law gave my daughter a vintage dress that has a label inside that says “Harvey Berin, designed by Karen Stark.” My mother-in-law was a music instructor at the local high school and put on musicals every year. This dress was donated to her to use in the musicals. When she retired, she gave the dress to my daughter to wear to the prom. Can you tell us anything about the designer and maker of this dress?

Clothing stores in the 19th century often displayed a sign that looked like a boot. It was a simple shape to make and easy to understand. This 47-inch-high wooden sign with its old paint sold for $911 at a Garth’s auction in Ohio. That was twice the presale estimated price.

A: Harvey Berin started his clothing business in 1921. He is known for his cocktail and evening dresses made from the 1940s until 1970. Berin bought dresses in Paris and had the designs adapted by designer Karen Stark, his sister-in-law. He approved the designs before the dresses were made. First Lady Patricia Nixon wore a gown designed by “Karen Stark for Berin” to the 1969 inaugural balls. The dress is now in the Smithsonian. Berin closed his business in 1970. *** Q: I have a blue-and-white ironstone platter with a floral border and a center

QUICK READ Kevin Druley with 10 years of teaching experience in District 303, Masoncup was a finalist for the St. Charles East boys vacancy filled by Pat Woods before the 2011-12 season. While he admits it’s tough leaving the staff of North boys coach Tom Poulin, a friend and fellow multisport coach, Masoncup looks forward to putting a stamp on a new program. He knows it Sean Masoncup comes with the “whirlwind” he’s seen the past few days, including coordinating summer leagues and camps on the fly. Masoncup’s assistant and Haines colleague Jeff Otterby brings 15 seasons of girls coaching experience, but switching from boys to girls doesn’t faze the defense- and running-minded Masoncup. “I truly think that basketball is basketball,” he said.

“No matter if it’s girls, boys, younger adults, basketball is basketball. It’s just a matter of translating it to the other levels.” In other North coaching news, Kevin Harrington will return to lead the boys track program, replacing Don Spencer. Harrington coaches boys cross country in the fall, and dabbled as a JV boys water polo assistant for the first time this spring.

Mission accomplished: Many of the 12 seniors on the North boys volleyball team listed regular pasta dinners among their favorite memories in the senior night match program. Were that document up for revision, Saturday’s team lunch might also be a prime pick. After losing a state semifinal to eventual state champion Downers Grove South in the morning, the North Stars needed to fill about four idle hours before taking on Glenbrook South for third place. “We had an awesome lunch, talked things over, definitely had a great team bonding experience and talked about what we had to do

to get another win,” senior outside hitter Kevin Beach said. North (32-7) scored a 25-20, 25-20 sweep of Glenbrook South to cap the most successful season in program history in its first trip to the state tournament. As it has throughout the spring, familiarity factored into the North Stars’ recovery. North did not lose consecutive matches all season. “With this group of guys, we’ve known each other for years and years,” senior defensive specialist Jimmy Vainisi said. “We know when it’s time to be serious – to have good practices, work as hard as we can. I think the fact we’ve known each

other – same as coach [Todd Weimer] – it went a long way for us.” Entering the tournament, the North Stars discovered plenty of social media trash talk from schools with deeper state tournament pedigrees. It didn’t faze them. “We kind of played with a little bit of a chip on our shoulder, and I couldn’t be happier with how we finished the season,” senior libero Ryan Dal Degan said. “And I think our play and our poise speaks for itself.”

New St. Charles North girls basketball coach Sean Masoncup took the perfunctory time to think about what would be his new position only because he was busy with another one. North athletic director Dan Dolney approached Masoncup about the opening a month ago as the boys tennis season neared its stretch run. “It’s always been something I’ve wanted to do is run my own basketball program,” Masoncup said. “It was a no-brainer once he asked.” On Monday, Masoncup officially was announced as North’s latest multisport head coach, taking the reins of a girls basketball program on which he kept a pulse as a North boys assistant for the past five seasons. Turns out Masoncup also has monitored his new players by day. A Haines Middle School physical education and health teacher, Masoncup has taught much of North’s current roster, including budding standouts Nicole Davidson (sophomore) and Morgan Rosencrants (freshman).

HOROSCOPE By BERNICE BEDE OSOL Newspaper Enterprise Association Although you will be able to reach some important objectives in the year ahead, it may not be easy. Success comes at a price, and you have to be willing to pay it. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – You’ll be more alert to opportunities and nuances in the morning than in the afternoon. As you tire, you could easily start to miss things. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Your methods could be quite imaginative and innovative today. Don’t let associates who cannot match your thinking shut you down. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – If you put too much emphasis on your own interests, expect to meet with resistance from others. Conversely, when you are considerate of other people, good things can happen. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Be extremely careful of your words when talking to a sensitive friend. What you think is merely a harmless comment could be construed as offensive. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – A project might require more resources than you have at your disposal. To be on the safe side, have someone at your side, ready to help out. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Even though you usually are a cooperative person, today you might not be a team player. Remember, when you make things tough on others, you make things tough on yourself as well. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – If you want to have a productive day, you must follow a realistic plan. If you don’t, all of your time will be spent cleaning up messes.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Don’t take anything at face value, especially financial matters. There could be hidden benefits as well as hidden pitfalls. Pay close attention to detail. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – A willingness to cooperate and a desire to do what’s best for all will ease many of the day’s confrontations. Do more giving than taking.

Readers share their views on raising kids Why do teens Dear Abby: I would like to respond to “Solitary Woman in Ottawa, Canada” (March 5), the expectant mom who asked how she could raise her child to enjoy “periods of quiet, reflective fun by himself.” I have two children, ages 7 and 1. Like “Solitary,” I also enjoy time to myself, whether reading, writing or going for a hike. When my son was born, I felt it was important to give him confidence and the ability to be self-sufficient. Therefore, we have him help us with chores like grocery shopping and encourage him to make healthy, responsible choices. When he was 2 and stopped taking naps, we told him he had to have “quiet time” and that reading to himself was one of the options. As a result, our son is self-motivated, an avid reader and writer, and has an intellectual curiosity most adults don’t have. He is teaching himself cursive writing and is interested in learning a foreign language. We live in the Colorado

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips Rockies, and getting rid of our TV set was one of the best things our family has ever done. Instead of tuning each other out, we enjoy conversation, creating and sharing our days together. I have never been happier as a father or husband. I am concerned for people who are afraid of silence. I suspect it’s a sign of sensory bombardment. The human mind needs moments of clarity brought on by reflection. –Dad Who Gets It Dear Dad: Thank you for your letter. I received many thoughtful comments from people who identify strongly with “Solitary’s” point of view: Dear Abby: Your advice to “Solitary Woman” was good, but did not start soon enough. She should provide stimulating crib and playpen toys to teach her son at an early age that he can control

some aspects of his environment. Having this ability is the key to enjoying solitude. When my daughter was 7 weeks old, I attached a mobile fashioned from a white wire coat hanger and rainbow-hued origami cranes to her bassinet. I wiggled it and watched her smile at the moving colored birds. When the movement stopped, she became frustrated and began to whimper and kick and flail her arms. The paper birds moved again. She lay still and watched them. When they stopped the second time, she didn’t whimper but just moved herself in the bassinet. She had learned she could control her environment. As a toddler she could leave her playmates and pursue solitary activities in the quiet of her own room. I am convinced that her bassinet experience was the basis for learning to be happy by herself and with herself. – Smart Mama in El Cajon, Calif. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Not all prostate cancers require special treatment Dear Doctor K: I recently had a PSA test and my levels came back elevated. I’m scheduled to have a prostate biopsy. What can I expect? Dear reader: The prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test is a screening test designed to detect prostate cancer before symptoms develop. An elevated PSA value can suggest that cancer may be present. But only a prostate biopsy can confirm the actual presence of cancer. A prostate biopsy involves removing snippets of tissue from the prostate and checking them for cancerous cells under a microscope. Your prostate gland lies right next to your rectum, and the rectum is a passageway inside your body. During the biopsy, your doctor will insert an ultrasound probe into your rectum. The ultrasound probe sends out sound waves that travel into the prostate and bounce back like an echo in a canyon. When they bounce back, they create a picture of your prostate gland. The picture shows the parts of the prostate that look like they might have cancer. This helps identify the best targets for the biopsy. Guided by the ultrasound picture, the doctor uses a spring-load-

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff ed “biopsy gun” that directs a needle into the part of the prostate that looks cancerous. The device quickly sends a needle through your rectal wall and into the prostate. The needle removes small tissue samples – a typical biopsy removes 10 to 12 samples. When the needle is withdrawn from the body, the prostate tissue inside the needle is examined with a microscope to look for cancer. You may feel a slight pinch as the needle punches into the prostate gland and takes the sample. Most men feel only mild to moderate discomfort. Possible risks of a prostate biopsy include: • Pain • Erectile problems • Blood in the urine or stool • Short-term rectal bleeding • Blood in the semen • Difficulty urinating • Urinary incontinence • Urinary tract or prostate gland infection If your biopsy result is positive, that means it has confirmed the presence of cancer in your

prostate. If the biopsy specimen shows cancer, it’s cancer. But some prostate cancers just sit there for the rest of your life and never cause trouble, whereas others do cause problems. The main question your doctor asks when the biopsy is positive: What kind of prostate cancer is this? The detailed biopsy findings will help you and your doctor decide what kind of prostate cancer you have, the extent and location of the cancer, and how malignant the cells look. This information helps your doctor determine how aggressive your cancer will be and the best course of action. If no cancerous cells are found in the samples, that’s a good sign. But there’s still some room for doubt. About 10 percent of biopsies are “false negatives.” This means they have missed existing cancer. Yes, the prostate biopsy can have side effects and can sometimes miss cancer. But the development of ultrasound pictures and biopsy guns and needles has made the diagnosis of prostate cancer much more accurate and has saved many lives.

commit suicide? Dr. Wallace: A month ago, my cousin and his girlfriend overdosed on drugs and both of them died. We know it was suicide because they left suicide notes to their parents. I went to the funeral, and it was the saddest moment of my life. They were buried side by side. Friends and relatives of both teens were in total shock and grief. He was a star athlete, and she was a senior homecoming princess. They were the perfect couple and seemed to have everything to live for. I can understand people killing themselves when they are sick or old or have huge financial problems. However, it is difficult to comprehend why two young adults who seem to have the world by the tail would commit suicide. Since you are an expert on teenagers, I’m hoping you can shed light on this very complex issue of teen suicide. Why does this happen? – Carla in San Francisco, Calif. Dear Carla: Suicide is an enormous tragedy that leaves a family filled with grief and guilt, but when a young person is involved, emotions are compounded. According to the American Mental Health Association, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death for adults, but for teens it’s the third leading cause. Every day, an estimated 18 teens take their own lives and another 57 teens and preteens attempt suicide. For many, the teen years are the most trying and painful of their lives. There seems to be no middle ground. It’s either happiness or

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace despair. Teens are trying to establish an identity, learning to operate independently, growing physically and intellectually, choosing a career and developing relationships. In a period when family instability is on the rise, some teenagers find they cannot cope with life. Parents may contribute by making impossible demands on teens and by rejecting them for failing to live up to Mom and Dad’s expectations, or by making the teen feel worthless. When a teen commits suicide, family factors are the most commonly cited cause. Death, divorce, alcoholism, drug abuse and child abuse – any of these – add to loneliness and depression. Researchers at the University of Southern California interviewed 6,000 teens who had attempted suicide and compared their life histories with those of a group of teens who had never tried suicide. The self-destructive teens had a much higher percentage of parents who had divorced, separated or remarried within the past five years. Multiple separations – being shunted from relatives to foster homes, missing the support of parents – deprived the suicide-prone teens of the necessary love every child needs. • Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers.

CROSSWORD

SUDOKU

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

• Tuesday, June 4, 2013

CELEBRITY CIPHER

Peter Thomson, an Australian golfer who won the British Open five times, said: “Every tournament has its climax, its winning moment. If you’re not watchful, you will miss it and lose your best chance.” A bridge deal often has its winning moment. If you’re not watchful, you will err and go down in your contract or fail to defeat the declarer. In this deal, South is in five clubs. West leads a low heart, East winning with his king and (best) continuing with the heart ace. How can South prevail? After South’s strong artificial opening and North’s weak artificial response, the bidding was natural. East thought about sacrificing in five hearts, but was dissuaded by the unfavorable vulnerability. (Five hearts doubled should cost 500.) Declarer seems to have 11 easy tricks: one spade, five diamonds and five clubs. However, to get five diamond tricks, South must draw trumps, unblock his ace and king of diamonds, and get to the dummy. What is his dummy entry? It is the club eight. But if South ruffs the second heart in the dummy, that will be the losing moment, destroying that entry when the trumps break 3-1, not 2-2. Instead, declarer should discard a spade from the board at trick two. If East continues with a third heart, South’s prettiest play is to ruff with his club nine, draw trumps, cash the top diamonds, overtake the club seven with dummy’s eight, and run the diamonds. Alternatively, South can ruff low, pitch a second spade from the board, draw trumps, cash his two diamonds and spade ace, and enter the dummy with a spade ruff.
