Summer reading program information

fsarver@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Treasures await readers willing to travel through books to other places and worlds. The DeKalb, Genoa, Hinckley and Sycamore libraries are holding summerlong reading programs for adults, teenagers and children, and offering prizes to those who take part. “Have Book – Will Travel” is this year’s theme for the DeKalb, Hinckley and Genoa libraries, with a focus on traveling to faraway places. The theme was an option for local libraries with summer reading programs after they were issued a federal grant to buy travel-related books and guides, said Sally DeFauw, DeKalb Public Library reference librarian. DeFauw, who runs the adult and teenager reading program for DeKalb, said the library has been decorated with directional signs pointing to “Literature Lane” or “Reference Ridge” to reflect the travel theme. Readers will place completed reading logs in a box decorated like a suitcase with vintage travel stickers. Adults and teenagers can win one of 18 gift certificates to a restaurant that

DeKALB – The DeKalb City Council will hold a public hearing Aug. 12 on establishing two tax increment financing districts in the city. While Monday night’s vote was just for the public hearing dates, 1st Ward Alderman David Jacobson did not want to see another TIF district established along Sycamore Road. W h i l e t h e c o u n c i l “I have some voted 7-0 to set a hearing date for a TIF dis- serious qualms trict along South Fourth believing in the Street, Jacobson was the lone “no” vote on setting necessity of a a hearing date for the TIF in one of our Sycamore Road-based district.

Jacobson said there’s more of a need for a TIF on South Fourth Street. Mayor John Rey partially disagreed, stating that both areas are blighted and need help. “The areas have been studied, and TIF counsel has indicated that those two areas are justified for TIF financing to improve those blighted areas,” Rey said. “I have heard a number of citizen comments that have indicated it’s an appropriate time to deal with that Sycamore Road blighted condition property.”

Quinn asks lawmakers to combine 2 pension plans By KERRY LESTER The Associated Press CHICAGO – Gov. Pat Quinn proposed a middle route Monday between two rival plans holding up a solution to Illinois’ nearly $100 billion pension crisis, but it’s unclear whether Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan will support it. Quinn asked lawmakers to craft and approve legislation that would include both competing pension plans – one advanced by Madigan and the other by Senate President John Cullerton – when they convene next week

in a special session to deal with the nation’s worst pension problem. Madigan’s plan, widely regarded as offering the most cost savings, would unilaterally impose pension changes on state workers and raise the retirement age. Cullerton’s plan gives state workers choices over what benefits to receive in retirement, something he contends would give it a better chance of being upheld by the state Supreme Court. Quinn proposes passing both in one single bill, essentially making Cullerton’s proposal a backup plan in case Madigan’s harsher solution fails

a legal challenge. But Madigan would not commit to supporting Quinn’s proposal, suggesting it was too complicated and insisting his own plan was the best option. “This is like a lot of things in the Legislature, you can make it complicated if you wish or you can keep Pat Quinn it simple,” Madigan said. “I think this is the time for the governor to step up, meet with Senate President Cullerton and individual senators and [support] the House pen-

sion proposal.” Madigan has argued that his plan will pass constitutional muster because the courts give legislatures wide discretion in times of crisis. Still, Quinn expressed hope that Madigan and Cullerton will work together to pass the compromise legislation. After the trio met for two hours Monday morning in Chicago, he drew on the image of goal-scoring Blackhawks duo Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane in calling the two legislative leaders to compromise. “I appeal to them to work together to put this priority on my desk,”

Quinn said. Under the hybrid proposal, the legislation’s implementation date would be pushed back until next June, Cullerton said. That would allow lawmakers to skirt the need for a “supermajority” – or three-fifths of a chamber’s votes – for passage during a special session. Illinois’ five public employee retirement systems are $97 billion short of what’s needed to pay benefits as currently promised to workers and retirees, due largely to years of the Legislature voting to skip or short the state’s payments.

jduchnowski@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – A Laborers Local 32 representative stood outside the Kishwaukee Family YMCA with an inflated rat Monday in protest of the organization’s choice in demolition contractors. Polar Construction of Chicago recently started demolition for a $1.5 million renovation of the facilities’ locker rooms at 2500 W. Bethany Road in Sycamore. But union leaders were concerned the YMCA leaders chose a nonlocal, nonunion contractor. They said nonlocal, nonunion contractors often offer worse pay and benefits than their union counterparts. “There’s plenty of local contractors that could have done that work,” said Matt Swanson, president of Local 32 of the Laborers International Union of North America. Polar Construction offered the lowest bid for the work; the next cheapest bid was $100,000 more expensive, said Katrina Luetkebuenger, associate executive director of the Kishwaukee Family YMCA. The choice was fiscally responsible, she said.

Keith Maier of Laborers Local 32 stands outside the Kishwaukee Family YMCA in DeKalb on Monday next to an inflatable rat to protest the YMCA’s awarding of a contract to a nonlocal, nonunion firm. “The rest of the contractors we are using are union, just not the one doing the demolition,” Luetkebuenger said. The mechanical and electrical contractors chosen for the project

are local companies, Luetkebuenger said. The demolition work should be finished this week, and the new locker rooms should be done by Labor Day.

8 TODAY’S TALKER

What’s the problem with PRISM program? By MATT APUZZO The Associated Press WASHINGTON – When the federal government went looking for phone numbers tied to terrorists, it grabbed the records of just about everyone in America. Why every phone number? “Well, you have to start someplace,” Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told NBC News on Monday. That breadth, that willingness to sweep up enormous information on Americans with no ties to terrorists, is making it hard for the Obama administration to tamp down controversy over a separate program, called PRISM, to monitor Internet traffic. In short, critics ask, if looking for terrorists means collecting every American’s phone records, how can anyone believe the president when he says Americans aren’t being monitored on the Internet? “These things are very narrowly circumscribed,” Obama said. “They’re very focused.” The Internet program came to light last week in documents published by The Washington Post and Guardian newspapers. It allows the NSA to reach into the data streams of U.S. companies – Facebook, Yahoo, Microsoft, Google and others – and grab emails, video chats, pictures and more. Just how much the government seizes is unclear. Clapper says it is narrowly focused on foreign targets, and technology companies say they turn

over only information that’s required by court order. But after reading a leaked court document last week that allowed NSA to sweep up millions of American phone records, Trevor Timm of the ElectronJames Clapper ic Frontier Foundation said, “The question is how broad the orders are they’re giving these companies.” PRISM was born late in George W. Bush’s administration, but its bloodline can be traced to the frenzied aftermath of 9/11. It used to be that, when the federal government wanted to read a foreigner’s Yahoo or Microsoft emails, it needed a judge’s approval. After the attacks, Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency to get to skip that oversight and read U.S.-based email accounts in real time. When the New York Times revealed the existence of that program, the Bush administration appealed to Congress, saying court approval was too arduous. There were too many emails to monitor. Getting warrants for each one took too long. “In certain cases, this process of obtaining a court order slows, and in some cases may prevent, the government’s efforts to conduct surveillance of communications that are potentially vital to the national security,” Kenneth Wainstein, then the Justice Department’s top national security prosecu-

tor, testified in 2007. Sometimes, the government would sweep up Americans’ emails, but not intentionally. “As a matter of due course, if you’re targeting something foreign, you could inadvertently intercept an American,” said Michael McConnell, the director of national intelligence at the time. Congress agreed. No more warrants. With that, PRISM was born. Now, the government needs only explain to Congress and a secret court exactly how it intends to collect information such as emails, Skype video conferences and Facebook messages. Once the court approves the collection rules, the government can grab anything it wants. Judging from the documents released by the Post and Guardian, PRISM takes a lot of data and quickly. An NSA document said PRISM was the eavesdropping program “used most” by the agency. The law says the government must limit its surveillance to people “reasonably believed to be located outside the United States.” But everything hinges words such as “targeting” and “collecting,” which have unique meanings in the spy world. As the classified court order released last week shows, officials can grab phone logs from everybody and still say they haven’t targeted or collected information on a single American. Only when an analyst reaches into the archives and looks at the information has something been collected.

Sycamore Public Library to have digging theme • READ

Gladys Bisco (right) looks through the summer program registration binder at the Children’s Desk at the Sycamore Public Library for a craft or workshop for her children, Nathaniel (left), 11, and Henry, 7, to participate in after both completed a goal as part of the library’s summer reading program.

The Sycamore Public Library held a travel-themed event already this year, so its program has a digging theme, said Katherine Keyes, assistant director for the library. The program for children is “Dig Into Reading,” while the one for teenagers is “Beneath the Surface.” The Hinckley Public Library also will hand out prizes to children and adults who submit a reading log. Children submitting reading logs in June and July can enter the Fun Fair, a carnival held at the end of the program, said Kate Ross, Hinckley Youth Services librarian. Smaller prizes, such

as museum passes or vouchers for the Kane County Cougars, are available to those who turn in weekly reading logs. The adult program encourages participants to read genres they haven’t read before, Ross said. “If you really like romance, we see if you want to read nonfiction,” Ross said. Participants who take part in that aspect can get extra tickets for a raffle, with prizes including Kindles, gym memberships and books, Ross said. Ross said summer reading helps maintain literacy levels and prepares children for the next school year. “We’re trying to bridge that gap so they’re not at a lower level when they start school again,” Ross said.

8BRIEF Apple revamps look of iPhone, iPad software SAN FRANCISCO – Apple is throwing out most of the real-world graphical cues from its iPhone and iPad software, like the casino-green “felt” of its Game Center app, in what it calls the biggest update since the iPhone’s launch in 2007. The new operating system, called iOS 7, strives for a clean, simple, translucent impression. Apple is redesigning all its applications and icons to conform to the new look, driven by long-time hardware design guru Jony Ive. The operating system will show up on most iPhones, iPad and iPod Touches this fall, the company said. The overhaul represents Ive’s attempt to freshen the look of both the iPhone and iPad in hopes of deepening users’ attachment to the trend-setting devices. – Wire report

DeKalb selects acting city manager By DAVID THOMAS dthomas@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Rudy Espiritu, who holds the city’s No. 2 administrator spot, was named acting city manager until DeKalb aldermen find a replacement for Mark Biernacki. The DeKalb City Council approved Espiritu’s appointment unanimously at its Monday meeting. Until the DeKalb City Council permanently appoints his successor, Espiritu will oversee the administration of the council’s various policies. With the council’s vote, the city and Espiritu enter an agreement that spells out his role as acting city manager, as well as his compensation and the expectations of both parties. During his appointment, Espiritu’s salary will be increased to an annual salary of $128,339. “I’ve been here for six

years; we went through a lot of tough times, and we were able to put the city in a better position than it was ever before,” Espiritu said about his appointment. Rudy Espiritu “I had a big part in that, so I definitely think I am up to the challenge.” Espiritu said he plans to apply for the permanent city manager position. Mayor John Rey and 2nd Ward Alderman Bill Finucane will interview representatives from Voorhees Associates, based in Deerfield, and Slavin Management Consultants, based in Mesa, Ariz. Both executive search firms received favorable reviews from DeKalb aldermen. The city solicited proposal requests from eight firms total,

What it means Assistant City Manager Rudy Espiritu will serve as the acting city manager until the DeKalb City Council names a permanent successor. and the aldermen emailed Rey with their top three choices. Voorhees came up as a preference from six council members, Rey said. The DeKalb Sanitary District used the firm previously. “They’ve learned the needs of the sanitary district, and they delivered,” said Rey, reading a recommendation from Dennis Collins, the president of the district’s board of trustees. “His assessment was that you can’t go wrong with Voorhees as a choice. “ Voorhees Associates outlined a 12-week process for

interviewing and selecting a candidate at a price of at least $16,000. Slavin Management also touted a 12-week process at a cost of at least $15,000. Rey said the city would pursue a professional services agreement with the company they like. Biernacki said he will not have a role in choosing his replacement, stating it is entirely the City Council’s purview. He was commended at Monday’s meeting for his service to the city with a resolution listing his accomplishments. Rey also read a letter from former Mayor Kris Povlsen, who praised Biernacki for his nine years as city manager. Nineteen of Biernacki’s 33 years in local government were spent in the city. He previously served as a community development director for 10 years before being selected as city manager in 2004.

Crash an ‘honest mistake’ By DAILY CHRONICLE news@daily-chronicle.com DeKALB – No one was injured Monday when a 60-yearold DeKalb woman mistook the gas pedal for the brake and broke several windows at 7-Eleven, 802 S. Fourth St., DeKalb, police said. “She was pulling in to park, and instead of hitting the brakes she hit the gas. Honest mistake,” DeKalb Sgt. Jon Costilow said. “She said she sees this happen all the time on the news, but never thought she’d be a victim of it.”

Firm could receive public funding to develop property • TIFS Continued from page A1 First Rockford Group, a Rockford-based development firm, has a contract to purchase the former Nelson property. The firm could receive public funding to bulldoze and develop the site if the district is established.

Jacobson, a vocal critic of how TIF is used, said private companies often overstate how much it would cost to redevelop the property. He pointed to Darden Restaurants, whose officials asked for a $900,000 loan so they could transform the old Small’s Furniture building into an Olive Garden. That plan was later abandoned. TIF is a special mechanism

local governments use to spur economic development. Property taxes rise, but the difference between the base and the new level is diverted into a separate account the city can use for projects in that district. These districts are established in areas that have blighted properties in them, and they have a 23-year life span initially. With the public hearing set,

the city will notify other local taxing bodies such as DeKalb School District 428 and the DeKalb Park District. These local governments will meet later this month to review the TIF proposal. Within a month after meeting, the groups will jointly issue a report on how the proposed districts would affect the different taxing bodies.

The Chevrolet Traverse broke windows and damaged the brick and wall beneath them, but neither the driver nor her passenger were injured, authorities said. No tickets were issued. DeKalb firefighters were there from about 10:45 to 11:30 a.m. to clear the broken glass and look for potential danger, said DeKalb Fire Battalion Chief James Zarek. Company representatives called a private company to board the windows, and the location remained open during the cleanup.

DeKalb Park Board to discuss personnel By DAVID THOMAS dthomas@shawmedia.com DeKALB – The uncertainty about the DeKalb Park District’s executive director could be resolved by Thursday, park board President Phil Young said. The DeKalb Park Board is scheduled to go into executive session to discuss a personnel issue at its regular monthly meeting Thursday, Young said. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at Hopkins Park Community Center, 1403 Sycamore Road, DeKalb. “It’s sort of a drawn-out thing here ... We’re anxious to get this all settled,” Young said. “Whatever the decision is, it would be addressed to the public.” Park board commissioners scheduled a special closed-session meeting May 24 to discuss personnel issues, and they asked Executive Director Cindy Capek not to attend. Capek, whose annual salary is $116,981, did

not return to work May 28, and would not comment whether she planned to do so for the rest of the week. Young said Capek had some vacation time scheduled during that time, but he declined to comment further. On Monday, Capek said she will not attend Thursday’s meeting but declined to comment further, deferring to Young. She is listed on the park district’s website as the executive director, although her telephone extension has been disconnected. “At this point in time, there haven’t been any terminations,” Young said. “Beyond that, I really can’t comment.” The uncertainty arose about three weeks after three new commissioners – Per Faivre, Don Irving and Keith Nyquist – joined the park board. The three campaigned on being agents of change and expressed frustration with the previous board’s decisions.

8LOCAL BRIEF Police: New charges filed against stalker SYCAMORE – A 31-year-old man convicted of stalking a Sycamore woman was back in jail Monday on allegations that he damaged a car parked in a driveway at her address. Christopher Thodos of Corralville, Iowa, was ordered to stay away from a home in the 900 block of Christopher Meadow Lane Thodos in Sycamore in February 2012. About two months later, he was sentenced to two years of probation and six months

of electronic home monitoring for sending his wife several threatening text messages in December 2011, court records show. More recently, he was arrested for allegedly letting the air out of both passenger-side tires of a Honda Civic on April 29. He was charged with violation of an order of protection, unlawful trespass to a vehicle and criminal trespass to property. His bond is set at $150,000, which requires posting $15,000 while the case is pending. He is next due in court Thursday. – Jillian Duchnowski

New air purifier in 15 minutes makes your home air crisp, lighter and fresh smelling like mountain air Runs silent - has no fan Never breathe bad air again By John Whitehead, Media Services

The famous EdenPURE® company has announced the best air purifier ever, The Mountain Air™ Ultra Air Purifier. In only 15 minutes, it will make the air in your home like mountain air.You will notice the air is crisper, lighter and fresh smelling like after a thunderstorm. The Mountain Air™ purifies air much better than the top rated air purifiers, yet it runs totally silent. It moves large volumes of air without a fan. The Mountain Air™ utilizes advanced Ultra Purification technology to purify the air. Ultra Purification removes pollutants other air purifiers do not that cause serious illness, allergies, asthma, odors and more. For more information and a great education on purifying air, here is my interview with William T. Betts, Director of Research and Development for EdenPURE® Q: How can The Mountain Air ™ move large volumes of air without a fan? A: It does it with a very high tech advancement called Ionically Induced Airflow. In simplified terms, this technology creates two planes of ions, one positively charged and one negatively charged, that draw air from one plane to the other in high volumes. The beauty of it is that it moves this air silently without a fan. A major second benefit to this technology is that it moves air in a linear pattern rather than the turbulent pattern produced by mixer-type fans used in old technology. This turbulence can create more pollution than the old technology air purifiers take out of the air.They stir up dirt in carpeting and dust off of surfaces. Q:Why doesThe Mountain Air ™ purify the air so much better than the top rated air purifiers which are HEPA air purifiers? A: HEPA is an acronym for High Efficiency Particulate Air removal.This old technology uses a number of fiber filters to remove air pollution. What most people don’t know is that this is 70-year-old World War II technology.The filters in this old technology cannot remove the worst pollutants that cause the most harm. The Mountain Air™ uses highly advanced electronic technology called Ultra Purification to capture and destroy virtually all pollution including the worst type of pollution, which is small particulate pollution. The small particulate pollution is what causes the most harm. The HEPA air purifiers do not remove these small particulate pollutants, which are microscopic particulates that can lodge deep into the lungs, causing respiratory problems and other serious health problems. The Mountain Air™ Ultra Purification technology uses

AIR POLLUTION: 0 Particulates

AIR POLLUTION: 1354 Particulates

The Mountain Air™ Ultra Air Purifier

Removes pollutants that cause illness, allergies, asthma, odors and more advance pollution attraction combined with advanced absorption into the collector where the pollution is then destroyed. This is why it destroys small particulate pollution that HEPA filters do not remove. Q: What types of pollutants are in indoor air that The Mountain Air ™ removes? A: It removes nearly allorganic and inorganic pollutants with its proprietary patented multifunctioning technology that has never existed prior to now. Organic pollutants removed by The Mountain Air™ include: fungus, bacteria, formaldehyde, ammonia from pet urine, cooking odors, skunk odors, ferret odors, fecal and urinary odors, perfumes, colognes, tobacco, smoke and creosote from fireplaces. Unlike HEPA filters The Mountain Air™ kills germs and viruses pulled through our electronic grid system. The Mountain Air™ also removes the following inorganic pollutants: hydrogen sulfides, decomposed gases including radon while absorbing worst formaldehydes. Our proprietary operating system not only collects bacteria, germs and viruses it kills them. We have 28,000 volts and ions NO germs can survive. We electrocute the virus and germs. The Wall Street Journal reported that there is 5 times more air pollution in a house than there is in the open air outside the house. Every day you breathe all these pollutants into your lungs and many are absorbed into your body. Q. Will The Mountain Air™ take out the pollens, dust mites, and other pollutants that cause allergies? A. Yes, it will. It will kill pollens and dust mites.Yet, at the same time, it will not harm pets or even small birds. Users report that they now feel so much better since they have The Mountain Air ™. Users say that before they were taking medication for allergies, sinus problems and

many other such ailments. They said they do not have to take the medication while they are in the presence of The Mountain Air™. Customers of The Mountain Air™ report that they notice a drastic difference in the air within minutes of turning on The Mountain Air™.They report that the air is crisper, lighter and smells fresh like air after a thunderstorm and mountain air. In fact, The Mountain Air™ has shown to produce air that is purer than the place on Earth that has the purest air which is the summit of the Cascade Mountains at 3,000 ft.elevation. Q: Does The Mountain Air™ have a filter? A:Yes. It has an inexpensive filter that lasts for over a year, depending on the amount of pollution you have. The filter is very inexpensive, only $19. For comparison, the cost to replace the filters on the top HEPA air purifiers is over $200.00. Q: How can my readers get the EdenPURE ® Mountain Air ™ Ultra Air Purifier and what is the price? A: Let’s do quick comparison shopping with two Consumer Digest best-buy HEPA units. The top rated IQ Health Pro HEPA model initial cost is $850.00. The annual energy cost, maintenance and filters is over $450 for a total cost for the first year of $1,300.00. Another top rated HEPA air purifier is Whirlpool Whispure, which sells for $299, has an annual maintenance cost of $320 and a total cost for the first year of $619.00. It is rated to clean 500 sq.ft.The Mountain Air™’s annual operating costs are only $29.51 including filter replacement and total energy cost and it is rated to clean up to 800 sq. ft.Your readers today can get The Mountain Air™ at a major discount for only $297.When you add the yearly $29.51 annual operating cost, this totals only $326.51 first year cost.This is $973.49 lower than the poorer performing IQ Health Pro.The Mountain Air ™’s overall cost per year and total first year’s cost is lower than any HEPA unit we compared while outper-

In a comparative test with the top rated air purifier, which is the IQ Health Pro air purifier, The Mountain Air™ Ultra Air Purifier won decisively. The particle detector shows the IQ Health Pro with a particle count of 1354. The Mountain Air™ particle count is 0. Yet the IQ Health Pro produced 69 decimeters of noise while The Mountain Air™ ran totally silent producing “0” decimeters of noise. The 69 decimeters of noise is nearly as loud as a leaf blower.

• Induced airflow created by 2 planes of ions, 1 positive and 1 negative

Mountain Air™ has shown to produce air that is purer than the place on earth that has the purest air which is the summit of the Cascade Mountains at 3,000 ft. elevation The Mountain Air™ technology is a patented noise free system due to incorporating advanced fan-less ion drive operation.

The survey comes after a successful survey in the fall at Kish’s sister facility, Valley West Community Hospital in Sandwich. “With Joint Commission accreditation, we are making a significant investment in quality on a day-to-day basis throughout our organization. Joint Commission accreditation provides us with a framework to take KishHealth System to the next level and helps reinforce our culture of excellence,” Dr. Michael Kulisz, KishHealth System chief medical officer, said in a news release. Kish Hospital underwent a rigorous and unannounced four-day survey. The team of Joint Commission surveyors – a physician, a nurse and a facility inspector – evaluated Kish for compliance with standards of care specific to the care of the patients, including infection prevention and control, leadership, medica-

tion management and overall safety. The Joint Commission’s hospital standards address important functions relating to the care of patients and the management of hospitals. The standards are developed in consultation with health care experts, providers, measurement experts and patients. “There is an amazing amount of health care-quality data available to the public,” Karen Black, KishHealth System director of quality, said in the release. “There are many surveys, review sites, and grading information presented online. We believe that because The Joint Commission comes on-site to judge our quality and not just review what is reported, that their survey data is the most reliable because it’s the most current and the most in-depth.” Earlier this year, the hospital’s main laboratory received accreditation from the College of American Pathologists. More recently, Kish Hospital received a three-year term of accreditation in computed tomography as the result of a review by the American College of Radiology. Kish Hospital also participates in additional national benchmark surveys throughout the year, and has been doing so for more than 10 years.

Now is time for federal media shield

Lautenberg gone, WWII vets fade from politics Over the past seven decades, 115 veterans of World War II have served in the United States Senate. Last week, the last of them, Sen. Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey, died. Two World War II veterans still serve in the House – Ralph Hall of Texas, who was a Navy pilot, and John Dingell of Michigan who joined the Army at 18 and was scheduled to take part in the planned invasion of Japan. There aren’t likely to be any more members of what Tom Brokaw labeled the Greatest Generation to serve in Congress. All surviving World War II veterans (except a few who lied about their age) are at least 85 years old. In the 68 years since World War II ended, veterans of the conflict have played an outsized role in American politics – more than veterans of any other conflict since the Civil War. Not much notice was paid when the last Spanish-American War veteran in Congress, Barratt O’Hara, died in 1969. Nor was much attention directed at the retirement from Congress in the 1970s of the last two World War I veterans – Sen. Mike Mansfield of Montana (who lied about his age to enlist) and Sen. John Sparkman of Alabama (who served in the Students Army Training Corps). In contrast, World War II veterans made a big splash in politics starting shortly after the war ended. Dozens of young veterans were elected to Congress in 1946, including two future presidents, John Kennedy and Richard Nixon. The two had offices near each other and, as Christopher Matthews chronicled in his 1996 book “Kennedy and Nixon,” were on friendly terms until they became political

For whistle-blowers and journalists who wish to expose government secrets and wrongdoing, the past four years have not been kind at the federal level. After promising transparency, the Obama administration has been perhaps the most aggressive in history in punishing leaks; its posture caught the nation’s attention in May with the revelation the Justice Department had subpoenaed phone records of Associated Press reporters and obtained the emails of Fox News reporter James Rosen. Now, it appears the overreach may have been just the wake-up call Washington needed. The scandal has revived the Free Flow of Information Act – the media shield law – that passed the House in 2009 only to fall to a Senate filibuster. The White House has thrown its support behind a new version in the Senate, and there is bipartisan backing for heightened First Amendment protection in some form. The Justice Department, long an opponent of shield laws, has been chastened enough by the latest bad news that it now appears open to the proposal. It’s long past time for a federal shield law to be enacted, one similar to measures in place in nearly every state. The federal law would protect journalists in most cases from being forced to reveal the identities of confidential sources or to turn over unpublished material to authorities. Settling on details of the proposal will be a challenge. The bill in the Senate, for example, defines “journalist” more broadly than the one in the House, which does not include student practitioners and others who do not earn income from their efforts. Many students have produced admirable public service journalism and deserve protection. The legislation also needs to acknowledge the rise of citizen journalism in recent years. Each proposal, however, aims to strike a balance between legitimate needs for government investigative latitude in an age of terrorism and the public’s right to important information that would not flow freely if journalists worked under surveillance and sources who risked their jobs could not be assured anonymity. Courts would decide, under clear rules, where national security overrode press freedom and where government officials were only serving their own interests in serving subpoenas. The Hoosier State Press Association is among many media and good-government organizations supporting a shield law. Stephen Key, general counsel to HSPA, says he’s confident a robust law can be hammered out even in the current highly partisan congressional atmosphere. “More significantly in our favor, the Department of Justice has been the roadblock to shield laws in the past, both under the Bush and the Obama administrations,” he said. “The Justice Department has been the one constant, and now, with the revelations, it may be tough to fight them.” Given the recent revelations, more than ever, the time is right for Congress finally to adopt a measure designed to ensure that government accountability and transparency aren’t trampled by warrants, subpoenas and intimidation.

Turkish revolt will fail – just ask the Russians By LEONID BERSHIDSKY Bloomberg News Anyone who witnessed how Russia’s “Snow Revolution” of 2011 and 2012 fizzled can confidently predict the failure of the Taksim riots in Turkey. In recent years, mass protests in authoritarian states have succeeded only where the rioters had little or nothing to lose, and so were prepared to unleash serious violence. That wasn’t the case in Moscow, and it isn’t the case in Istanbul, where the majority of the protesters are relatively prosperous members of the middle class. Tragic as the death tolls of the Arab Spring rebellions are, they provide an indicator of the poverty-fueled rage, amplified by religious fundamentalism, that set those events apart. In Libya, more than 30,000 died in clashes that resulted in the public torture and killing of dictator Moammar Gadhafi. In Egypt, 846 perished; in Tunisia and Yemen, more than 200 each. Syria, where the outcome is unclear, has seen tens of thousands of deaths. In Russia, by contrast, the only fighting took place on May 6, 2012, the day before President Vladimir Putin’s inauguration. Riot police formed a narrow corridor for marchers trying to enter a square in central Moscow where an anti-Putin rally was taking place. Some fighting ensued, with the most radical protesters throwing rocks and bottles or pulling helmets off police officers. This week, a major show trial started for 12 protesters accused of violence against law enforcement officers. The injuries those

officers suffered were minor; it is unclear whether any of them were hospitalized. Protesters suffered a few broken limbs and concussions. Pretty much all other anti-Putin rallies in Moscow transpired without any violence at all. Turkey’s experience so far is similar to Russia’s. Sadly, some have died, but the deaths seem accidental rather than the direct outcome of fighting. Overturned cars and broken windows hardly count as signs of civil war. As in Russia, demonstrators are taking issue with the suppression of political freedoms and the spread of religious obscurancy, rather than with poverty or other economic woes. The religious zealots are on the ruling regime’s side. Turkish leftists and Kemalists are unhappy with the political direction in which pro-Islamic, authoritarian Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is taking their secular, democratic country. But they can’t deny the economic progress Turkey has made under his rule. Many of them have benefited from it. Indeed, they feel important and empowered enough to demand that the government listen to them when they tell it to stop construction in a public park. In Moscow, the rebellious middle class also took to the streets to demand inclusion. A rigged parliamentary election in 2011 and a general feeling that their voices were being ignored catalyzed their discontent with a government bent on restoring traditional Russian values, including the dominance of the Orthodox Church, in a country that had made large strides toward the West in the 1990s.

The educated people who value political freedoms, religious neutrality and a more inclusive form of government are not willing to die for these values, because their absence isn’t essentially life-threatening. This is fortunate for the likes of Putin and Erdogan. They can subdue the most radical elements in the protests by force, and the rest of the discontented masses will go back to their jobs and cafes. Gadhafi or Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak could not have gotten off so lightly. In each of the Arab countries where dictatorial regimes fell, the Muslim Brotherhood was heavily involved in the protests. The Brotherhood focuses on charity activities among the underprivileged, many of whom were consequently willing to risk their lives for the cause. The liberals, who also gained access to government in the aftermath of the revolutions in some countries, notably Tunisia, have arguably come along for the ride. In countries where the regimes are more radical than the protesters, street action is doomed. Gone are the days of peaceful revolts like the bloodless Rose Revolution of 2003 in Georgia and the Orange Revolution of 2004-2005 in Ukraine. Dictators have learned their lesson. They are less afraid to show their true colors, confident that they can portray pro-democracy protesters as marginal elements to the majority that brought them to power in the first place.

Debating the farm bill Congress is trying to pass a farm bill for the third time in three years. There are no guarantees again. There is major disagreement from House to Senate and among lawmakers from different regions about key provisions in the legislation. A favorite target of lawmakers from nonfarming states is subsidies for the nation’s biggest crops. The Senate, before it headed off for the Memorial Day recess, voted to limit the amount of government subsidies the wealthiest farmers receive when purchasing crop insurance. The subsidies will get particular emphasis in the ongoing debate over the five-year farm bill that would cost almost $100 billion, particularly because they are politically an easy target at the same time that big cuts in the federal food stamp program appear to be on the way. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., one who proposed subsidy cuts, offered examples of the impact on farmers with gross annual incomes in the three-quarter-million range. What better way to build support for reducing their payments than to offer Durbin’s summation? As Congress debates exactly how many billions of dollars to cut from the government’s main food-assistance program for low-income Americans, a new report finds that the existing program already fails millions who must constantly worry about how to feed themselves and their families. According to the International Human Rights Clinic of NYU Law School, the four biggest food-assistance programs fall short for as many as 50 million food-insecure households. Eligibility requirements are already so strict that one in four households classified as food insecure were still considered too high-income to receive benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Brown adds 2 more offers Kent St., Toledo join running back’s list with Illinois, NIU AP file photo

Bears’ patience for Rodriguez runs out CHICAGO – No lengthy explanation was provided. None was needed. Instead, the Bears released a simple statement Monday. “Bears Make Roster Moves,” the team’s subject line stated. It was shorter than the possible alternative: “Player Makes Too Many Mistakes.” The Bears released fullback Evan Rodriguez after one season and two recent run-ins with the law that disappointed general manager Phil Emery and the rest of the team’s front office. Rodriguez, who appeared in 12 games during his lone season with the Bears, now must go in search of his next second chance with another NFL team. The Bears also released receivers Demetrius Fields and Dale Moss, neither of whom saw action with the team last season. After clearing three roster spots, the Bears brought back receiver Devin Aromashodu in addition to signing receiver Jerrell Jackson and fullback Tony Fiammetta. In March, Rodriguez was arrested in Miami and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting an officer without violence. The chargers eventually were dropped, but Emery let it be known the next month that he had spoken with his 24-year-old fullback. “I certainly was disappointed in his arrest,” Emery said. “Certainly, Evan knows I was disappointed. He was re-educated with my expectations of a Chicago Bear off the field, and I certainly expect good things from him.” Last month, Rodriguez was arrested by the Illinois State Police and charged with driving under the influence, improper lane use and speeding. Rodriguez released a written apology via the team, in which he said he was “deeply sorry” to the organization and its fans while adding, “I realize that I made a very poor decision.” – Tom Musick, tmusick@shawmedia.com

By ANTHONY ZILIS sports@daily-chronicle.com DeKalb running back Dre Brown didn’t even know Kent State and Toledo were keeping an eye on him, but coaches from the pair of Ohio Mid-American Conference schools approached him at a camp at Ohio State on Sunday and offered him scholarships on the spot. Brown, who will start his junior year this fall, said he met the entire Toledo staff at the beginning of camp, and he was approached by first-year Kent State coach Paul Haynes later in the day.

“I had no idea about them,” Brown said. “Toledo made a pretty good impression. Kent State was a quick thing. … I don’t know much about [either school]. I know that they’re pretty good in the MAC. I pretty much grew up watching them play NIU all my life, so I’ve seen them play a bunch of times.” Toledo and Kent State are the third and fourth schools to offer scholarships to Brown, joining Illinois and Northern Illinois, which both offered during Brown’s sophomore season in the fall. Traditional football powerhouses also have begun to recruit Brown, who will visit Michi-

gan State today and Michigan on Wednesday. The Spartans began courting Brown a few months ago, while Michigan joined the mix recently. Michigan assistant coach Curt Mallory visited Brown at school a few weeks ago. Mallory lived in DeKalb when his father, Bill, was the coach at NIU from 1980 to 1983 before moving on to coach Indiana. The DeKalb connection certainly helped earn Brown’s affections, but Daily Chronicle file photo the Wolverines’ tradition immediately might propel them toward the DeKalb junior running back Dre Brown received scholarship offers from Kent State and Toledo on top of Brown’s list.

Before the season, Thuestad was unsure whether she would play. She had skipped basketball her junior year to focus on volleyball, the result of which was an offer to play at Loras College in Iowa. But with her future secure, Thuestad returned for a final run. Basketball was just one part of a busy senior year for Thuestad. The three-sport star and class president also was a vital player for Indian Creek’s volleyball team and qualified for the state meet in track and field.

CHICAGO – Before the puck drops Wednesday night on the Stanley Cup Finals, one more showcase event will take place at the United Center. No, it’s not a Rolling Stones concert. It’s the circus. As in, the annual NHL media day circus on the eve of the series. “I have no clue what to expect,” Blackhawks forward Brandon Bollig said as he prepared for a long day of practice followed by media obligations. Game 1 “But the way you’re talking, it Bruins at Blackshould be pretty entertaining. hawks, 7 p.m. Now, I’m kind of Wednesday, excited.” NBC, AM-720 Note to self: Pray that the event lives up to Bollig’s heightened expectations. Otherwise, make sure to maintain a distance of at least 10 feet between you and his fists. To be truthful, the NHL’s media day is not in the same galaxy of strangeness as the annual Super Bowl media day. Nobody wears costumes (at least, let’s hope not), and the media horde is a fraction as big as that which globs on to the NFL. But by the Hawks’ everyday standards, it still is a pretty big deal. A typical regular-season practice or pregame skate might feature six or seven reporters and a few TV cameras. As the Hawks entered the postseason and captured more of the city’s attention, media crowds increased into the multiple dozens. Guess how many media members will be covering the Stanley Cup Finals between the Hawks and Boston Bruins? Try 400. Hawks forward Michael Frolik accommodated a slice of that crowd as he spoke in front of his locker Monday after practice. Frolik discussed his excitement about playing in the Stanley Cup Finals after two-plus seasons with the Florida Panthers and two-plus seasons with the Hawks. “When you are little, you dream about it,” Frolik said. “Now, here we are.” To clarify, you dream about playing hockey. You don’t dream about sitting at a table at media day while reporters come and go, asking the same question 10 or 20 times in two or three languages about what makes the Hawks’ penalty kill so good.

Frolik eager to face childhood idol

By TOM MUSICK tmusick@shawmedia.com CHICAGO – If you ever are touring the Czech Republic, make a stop in Kladno. That’s the town that hosted Lord Stanley’s Cup in the summer of 2013. Well, it hasn’t happened yet, but it will. That’s because both the Blackhawks and Boston Bruins have Kladno residents on their roster. MiMichael Frolik chael Frolik represents the town for the Hawks, while Jaromir Jagr does so for the Bruins. Frolik, 25, admitted Monday that he grew up idolizing Jagr, now 41 years old. “When I was little, he was a big star at home,” Frolik said. “For sure, he was my idol.” It’s not every day that a player is able to compete against his childhood idol for the biggest prize in hockey. Jagr scored 16 goals in the regular season during stints with the Dallas

Bulls break ground on new practice space CHICAGO – The Bulls have broken ground on a new practice facility on the city’s West Side. The team is held an official groundbreaking ceremony Monday for the new 55,000-squarefoot facility that will be built in what’s now Parking Lot J, just east of the United Center. The Bulls have practiced at the Berto Center in the Chicago suburb of Deerfield since 1992.

him.”

Admiration society: While Frolik spoke glowingly of Jagr, his countryman, Hawks forward Andrew Shaw admired Bruins forward Brad Marchand for his peskiness. Like Shaw, Marchand (5foot-8, 183 pounds) does not wear a big sweater but seems to make a big difference when-

ever he is on the ice. “Clearly, he’s a great player,” said Shaw, who has four goals and 26 penalty minutes in 17 playoff games. “He does what he needs to do and he’s great at it. “He’ll get under the skin. He’ll score goals. He’ll skate. He’ll hit. He’ll try to draw penalties. He’ll do it all. I’d like to be like that. He’s been in the league a lot longer.” Watching from afar: Although the Hawks did not play the Bruins during a shortened regular season, the team has a good idea of what to expect. Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said scouting the Bruins required homework. “You have scouts,” Quenneville said. “(You) talk to people involved in playing against them. (There are) not a lot of secrets out there. What you see is what you’ll get.” Hawks bits: The Hawks will practice today before taking part in the league’s annual media day at the United Center. … The Bruins will host a team sendoff today at the TD Garden before flying to Chicago.

Cubs base runner Anthony Rizzo stands at second base in the fog during Monday night’s game against the Reds at Wrigley Field. The Cubs lost, 6-2.

REDS 6, CUBS 2

Cubs lose in the fog The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Brandon Phillips hit a grand slam and matched his career high with six RBIs, and the Cincinnati Reds extended their dominance over the Cubs with a 6-2 win Monday night in foggy conditions at Wrigley Field. Phillips had an RBI single in the first, connected off Scott Feldman (5-5) in the third and an RBI groundout in the sixth for his fourth career game of six RBIs. Across town, the White Sox and Toronto Blue Jays were delayed for more than an hour because of a dense fog but the Cubs and Reds never were halted. Cincinnati has won 10 straight at Wrigley Field, eight of 10 over the Cubs overall this season, and 17 of the teams’ past 20 matchups. The Reds were coming off a weekend series loss to NL Central-leading St. Louis and had lost four of five overall.

Next vs. Cincinnati, 7:05 p.m. today, WGN, AM-720 Homer Bailey (4-4) picked up his first win since beating the Cubs on May 25. He pitched eight innings and gave up one unearned run and four hits while striking out eight to improve to 7-2 against the Cubs, who fell to 7-19 in the NL Central. Bailey threw 120 pitches, his second most of the season and third 100-plus pitch start of the season. Feldman pitched six innings and allowed five runs and seven hits to lose his first decision since May 24 at Cincinnati, the other time he’s allowed five earned runs this season. The Cubs, who have lost six of eight since a five-game winning streak, fell behind early. Cincinnati took the lead in

the first on Phillips’ two-out RBI single, bringing in Zack Cozart. Cozart had reached when his pop-up was dropped by third baseman Luis Valbuena, forcing out Shin-Soo Choo who led off the game by getting hit by a pitch. Choo has been hit by a NLhigh 18 pitches. Cozart scored three runs and had two hits. The Reds took a 5-0 lead in the third on Phillips’ grand slam, his 10th home run of the season. Bailey, Cozart and Joey Votto all singled off Feldman before Phillips took a 1-1 pitch through the fog and into the left-field bleachers for his fifth career grand slam. The Cubs, meanwhile, saw their offensive struggles continue. They scored six runs during a three-game series with Pittsburgh, and didn’t score until two outs in the sixth when Phillips’ throw on a soft Nate Schierholtz grounder was wild, allowing Valbuena to score.

Frolik chuckled at the circus that awaited him and his teammates. Outside the Hawks’ locker room, a maze of cables and wires covered the tile floor as national TV crews prepared for a couple of big nights ahead. “It’s unbelievable,” Frolik said. “It’s so many people. It’s crazy. “I know [on Tuesday], we’ve got like two hours or something to be here for the media. I’ve never had that. It’s an exciting time. You want to enjoy it.” At the same time, the Hawks have a job to do. Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said he trusted his players to stay focused on hockey when they weren’t conducting interview after interview. After having been through this before, Quenneville said, a positive attitude was key to dealing with the hubbub. “There can be some distractions, but it is a fun process,” Quenneville said. “You want to make sure you enjoy the process and get ready at the right times.” The table is set. The spotlight is ready. Many nations of hockey fans will be watching. The Hawks plan to smile and say hello. “I mean, there’s two teams left,” Hawks rookie Brandon Saad said. “But four [teams], two [teams], eight [teams], everyone’s always watching the playoffs. It’s a little bit of a bigger stage, but we’re just going to be excited about it and embrace it.”

Rear slap gets ex-NFL star 30 days in jail By CURT ANDERSON The Associated Press FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Former NFL star Chad Johnson was sentenced Monday to 30 days in jail for a probation violation in a domestic violence case by a judge who angrily rejected a no-jail plea deal after Johnson playfully slapped his attorney on the backside in court. Johnson, known as Chad Ochocinco for his jersey number in Spanish during his playing days, had reached a deal with prosecutors calling for community service and counseling instead of jail. Broward County Circuit Judge Kathleen McHugh said she would tack on an additional three months’

probation because Johnson had failed to meet with his probation officer during three previous months. It was all set until Johnson, when asked by McHugh if he was satisfied with his lawyer Adam Swickle, gave the attorney a light swat on the rear – as Chad Johnson football players routinely do to each other on the field. The courtroom erupted in laughter and at that McHugh said she wouldn’t accept the deal. “I don’t know that you’re taking this whole thing seriously. I just saw you slap your attorney on the backside. Is

there something funny about this?” McHugh said, slapping the plea deal document down on her desk. “The whole courtroom was laughing. I’m not going to accept these plea negotiations. This isn’t a joke.” Johnson, 35, tried to apologize and insisted he meant no disrespect. Johnson was on probation after pleading no contest to head-butting his then-wife, TV reality star Evelyn Lozada, during an altercation in August. She quickly filed for divorce after barely a month of marriage and Johnson, a six-time Pro Bowl receiver, immediately was released by the Miami Dolphins. He didn’t play at all last season. “This is your courtroom. I

have no intent to make this a joke. It’s not funny,” Johnson told the judge “My life is in a shambles right now and I try my best to laugh and keep a smile on my face.” But McHugh, who could have given Johnson up to a year in jail, was not moved. “It’s not the first time he’s behaved that way in my courtroom,” she said. Johnson then was handcuffed and hauled away to jail. Swickle declined comment on whether he would ask the judge to reduce her sentence. Hours later, Johnson sent out a tweet on his verified Twitter account: “Love me through the good and the bad because I’m gone love you regardless ... See you in 30.”

NBA FINALS, GAME 3: HEAT AT SPURS, 8 P.M. TODAY, ABC

Spurs return home satisfied, but shaken By BRIAN MAHONEY The Associated Press SAN ANTONIO – Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili sat in mostly stunned silence, all that playoff experience not preparing them for how they felt after two games. They were satisfied, yet shaken. The San Antonio Spurs had taken home-court advantage away from the Miami Heat, but then Tim Duncan the reigning champions took them apart. So as they prepared to bring the NBA Finals back home for the first time in seven years, the veterans struggled with how they were supposed to sum up their situation. Getting one in South Florida was an accomplishment, but nothing that provided them any momentum after the Heat’s 103-84 victory Sunday in Game 2. “Not after tonight. I think they regained that,” Duncan said Sunday. “Obviously, we were glad to win a game here in Game 1. Our goal was to get two. But they got the one tonight. We get to go back home. We got a game here. We have three at home, so we’re excited about that. But if we play like we did tonight, that’s not going to matter.” The teams took Monday off, with the series resuming tonight. The Spurs also will host Game 4 on Thursday and Game 5 on Sunday. The finals once were as much a part of June as the heat in this city deep in the heart of Texas. San Antonio won four titles in a nine-year span starting in 1999, but hasn’t hosted a game in the NBA’s championship round since the Spurs took a 2-0 lead over LeBron

James and Cleveland in 2007. Here comes James again, needing to win one here – which hasn’t been easy for Miami – and not concerned that the finals’ 2-3-2 format now gives the advantage to the Spurs. “It doesn’t matter,” he said. “Two best teams in the NBA at this point. Both teams have won and can win on each other’s floor. So it’s not a biggie.” The Heat are only 3-22 in San Antonio, although they did win this year even while James, Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers sat out the late-season meeting. James had no cause for concern after Game 2, which validated his belief that he can depend on his teammates until he gets rolling, as he did late in the third quarter and well into the fourth. But a little doubt seemed to creep into the Spurs’ Big Three, unusual for a group that has been there, done that. Duncan, Parker and Ginobili have teamed for 99 postseason victories together, second most in NBA history, a trio that is well aware of how quickly things can change in the playoffs. They changed really quickly in this series, about the time it took James to turn Tiago Splitter’s dunk attempt into a forever finals highlight with a blocked shot. “Of course if you look at the result, being 1-1, it’s not bad. But you don’t want to play like this in an NBA Finals,” Ginobili said. “You don’t want to give them that much confidence, and you feeling bad about yourself.” Duncan was admittedly awful in Game 2, shooting 3 of 13 for nine points. Parker offset his five baskets in 14 attempts with five turnovers, and Ginobili had three of the Spurs’ 17 turnovers that led to 19 points.

U.S. OPEN

Scott comes as a major champ Masters winner in pairing with Woods, McIlroy By DOUG FERGUSON The Associated Press ARDMORE, Pa. – Adam Scott can understand why so many people thought he would have a hard time getting over his epic collapse in the British Open. They didn’t understand his master plan of trying to get better instead of just trying to get better results. Ernie Els walked away from Royal Lytham & St. Annes with a silver claret jug. Scott walked away believing he finally was capable of winning a major, and it wasn’t just a pep talk to soothe the shock over losing a four-shot lead with four holes to play. “I think if I sat there and watched someone else do what I did, it would have been devastating,” Scott said Monday. “It’s maybe more apparent to me now that you were all surprised that I wasn’t just shattered. But honestly, that’s not how I felt.” In a decision that reshaped his career, Scott decided two years ago to play a limited schedule and practice smarter so that he would be ready for the biggest events.

Except that Scott doesn’t see this as the end. He is among the favorites when the U.S. Open begins Thursday at Merion, a course that was soaked by more rain Monday. Scott will be part of the feature group the opening two rounds, playing alongside Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy – Nos. 1, 2 and 3 in the world ranking. Scott has been part of this routine before. The first time the USGA put together the top three players in the world was at Torrey Pines in 2008 – Woods and San Diego native Phil Mickelson at 1 and 2, and Scott feeling very much out of place. “I think anyone would have felt like the third wheel that week,” Scott said. “Remembering back to Torrey Pines, the hype was enormous around that pairing. There was so much talk about it being Phil’s hometown and Tiger dominating Torrey for years. It was an experience I’ll never forget. I’ve never seen that many people on a Thursday morning on the first tee. It was a great atmosphere.” And now? “I’m probably also the AP photo third wheel this week, as Adam Scott speaks Monday during a news conference at the U.S. well,” Scott said with a laugh. Maybe not.

Earnhardt gearing up to make a run at victory By DAN GELSTON The Associated Press LONG POND, Pa. – By the time Dale Earnhardt Jr. reached Victory Lane last season at Michigan, the win seemed as much inevitable as implausible. One top 10 finish at a time, Earnhardt built and built before a four-year, 143-race winless streak was snapped; a legion of fans sent into a frenzy as NASCAR’s most popular driver finally gave them all a reason to go wild. Well, look who’s back on a hot streak. And look what track’s on deck for the ol’ No. 88. Earnhardt is set to roll into Michigan International Speedway, site of his past two Sprint Cup victories, enjoying a bit of a renaissance for Hendrick Motorsports. He’s in fourth place in the points standings (he finished 12th last season) and is coming off a third-place finish Sunday at Pocono Raceway. Earnhardt can’t be blamed too much for being unable to pull out his first win of the season. No driver was going to beat his Hendrick teammate Jimmie Johnson, who led 128 of 160 laps en route to his third win of the season. Earnhardt was there at the end, though, battling Johnson off two restarts over the final 10 laps before finally yielding to Greg Biffle for second. He has two straight top 10s and three in his past four races. Oh, did we mention he’s going to Michigan? If Earnhardt was traded on Nasdaq, it’d be time to buy. “Hopefully, we can do this throughout the summer and get ourselves in the Chase pretty comfortably,” he said. “We’ve got a little work to do to get to where some of the other guys are.” Earnhardt can grab a cheat sheet from the guys working across the shop on Johnson’s No. 48. While the results – and certainly, the championships

Earnhardt’s crew chief Steve Letarte and Johnson’s pit box guru Chad Knaus swap ideas, setups and a sneak peek pf other useful tidbits, if needed, before every race. While it’s hard to tell sometimes because Johnson could make the New York Yankees envious of titles won the past decade, Earnhardt and crew have benefited from the data sharing. “They grow stronger and stronger each week,” Johnson said. “I know there’s a bright light on these guys and what they do week in and week out. They’re strong and they elevate their teammates, as well. They’re great teammates. They help us out. We certainly do all we can to help them out and help them grow and get stronger.” Johnson hasn’t done too bad himself. He won his third race, and his 63rd career Cup victory helped stretch his points lead to 51 over Carl Edwards. He even survived a brief scare when the No. 48 had to make two attempts through post-race inspection because

the car’s weight was a bit off balance on the first try. The car was allowed a few moments to settle and passed on the second attempt, a common courtesy, NASCAR said. The issue was about the way to slow down Johnson on Sunday. Earnhardt’s performance had tailed off a bit after opening the season with five straight top 10s, including two runner-up finishes. A fiverace dip, with four finishes of 16th or worse, was next. At the rate he’s rebounded, those results could just be a blip that happens to just about every driver over the taxing 36-race season. “We’ve been carrying momentum for a good solid year now,” Earnhardt said. “We started the year off really good. We just had a lot of problems since then and just struggled to get good finishes. We are all right. We know what we need to do. Confidence is there. All the fans can rest assured we feel like we are on the right track.” That’s a lot of fans considering Earnhardt has long ruled NASCAR’s most popular driver title for a decade. They hope to be there again cheering him on – at

the track, at home, on Twitter – this week at Michigan. Or Sonoma. Kentucky. Wherever. “They’re clicking,” Johnson said. “They’re doing a great job.” Earnhardt expects to keep rolling straight into Michigan. Earnhardt’s 143 races between wins was the sixth-longest streak in Sprint Cup history. It was the 19th Cup victory of Earnhardt’s career and second in 159 starts for Hendrick Motorsports. He had 17 victories in 291 races for Dale Earnhardt Inc. He wasn’t won since Michigan. But Earnhardt followed Michigan last year with three fourth-place finishes over five races, and only a concussion that kept him out of two Chase races truly ended his championship hopes. “It’s good to be able to run good again,” Earnhardt said. Mix in a little of last year’s successes at upcoming tracks with a dash of this year’s contending runs and Earnhardt just might find himself yet feted in Victory Lane. Or maybe – try not to get too excited just yet Junior Nation – walk up to the banquet to deliver his speech as series champion. Now if only Johnson would just get out of his way.

Widow of drug abuser fears brother’s next Dear Abby: I have read your column for as long as I can remember. My husband died from a drug overdose, and I am a widow at 32. He was a good man before the drugs, but he wouldn’t stop and I was helpless to intervene. I am now raising our two sons alone. My problem is my brother is headed down the same road, and I don’t know how to help him. I don’t have the money to send him to rehab, and he doesn’t think he has a problem. He has lost his job, has no vehicle and is losing what friends he has left. I don’t want to turn my back on him or lose him the way I lost my husband. I know he needs rehab or therapy, but with the lack of

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips funds I don’t know where to turn. Furthermore, how do I explain this to my 9- and 10-year-old sons? The most influential man in their life is setting a terrible example. – Can’t Turn Away From My Brother Dear Can’t Turn Away: If seeing your husband die from an overdose wasn’t enough to convince your brother it was time to get into a substance abuse program, then nothing you can do will. There are two things that are more important in your life than he is,

and those are your two sons. A narcotics addict destroying his life is a very poor role model. Your boys are old enough to know how dangerous drugs are and that they caused the premature death of their father. Do not permit them to be in the presence of anyone who is abusing drugs and spiraling downward, or they will grow into adolescence thinking it is normal. Your brother is the only person who can help himself get back on his feet, no matter how much you might wish it were otherwise. Dear Abby: I don’t understand divorced women and the restrictions they put on their exes about what they can and can’t do with their children. (“You can’t let him

go to the pool party; he might drown”; “She can’t visit with your mother; she has a cat”; “Don’t make him rake leaves; that’s YOUR job!”) Instead, they should be grateful these fathers are active parts of their children’s lives. Too many fathers simply walk away. Unless the dad is actively harming the child, they have no right to dictate what their ex does with his kids on his time. Remember, ladies, you made a baby with him. He is their dad and he has every right to parent as he sees fit, even if it differs from your own philosophy. And dads, don’t let your ex try to tell you that you are a bad parent because you let your kid go roller skating and she broke

her arm. It is not your fault. Things like that happen all the time, even to kids whose parents are still together. So stand up for your right to be a real dad! – Unsympathetic Mom in Pennsylvania Dear Mom: If I were you, I’d keep my head down and not get caught in the crossfire. It’s not that you lack sympathy, but you obviously don’t relate to the women you hear complain. While some of them may seem controlling or hyper-protective, others may have valid concerns about their children’s safety while they’re with Dad.

‘Mindful eating’ helps prevent overeating Dear Dr. K: I recently heard someone discuss “mindful eating” as a weight-loss strategy. Could that help me lose weight? Dear Reader: Does this sound familiar? You’re at your computer, facing a wall of emails. After composing a reply, you hit “send” and reach for the bulging turkey wrap on your desk, and then the bag of chips, washed down by a soda (sugar-free, or not). You continue to eat, chewing while glancing at the screen. Before you know it, you’ve finished lunch without even noticing it. That’s not mindful eating. Mindful eating is a slower, more thoughtful way of eating. It’s based on the Bud-

It introduces a dhist concept of mindfulness, “moment of choice” between which involves being fully the urge to eat and actually aware of what is happening eating.

your brain that you’re full – but only after 15 to 20 minutes, no matter how large the meal. And a person can easily eat a 3,000-calorie meal in 15 to 20 minutes. So deliberately making a meal go slowly, and being willing to quit when you feel full and save the leftovers, is a potent aid to weight loss. If you want to give mindful eating a try, start gradually. Eat one meal a day or week in a slower, more attentive manner. Here are some tips that may help you get started: • Set your kitchen timer for 20 minutes. Take that time to eat a normal-sized meal. • Try eating with your nondominant hand. If you’re a righty, hold your fork in your

left hand. • Use chopsticks if you don’t normally use them. • Eat silently for five minutes. Think about what it took to produce that meal, from the sun’s rays to the farmer to the grocer to the cook. • Take small bites and chew well. Eating healthy is not just about maintaining a healthy weight. The kind of calories, as well as the number of calories, matter. I hope some of these tips will help you limit the number of calories. In other columns, I’ll describe the healthiest calories.

The parent’s role regarding teens and smoking Parents: Are you strict or lenient when it comes to your teen smoking or not smoking? A study by Dartmouth Medical School revealed some interesting findings on the influence of parents on whether their child does or does not smoke. Researchers surveyed 372 rural Vermont young people in grades four through 11 who had never smoked. Two years later, they were re-questioned about their parents’ views on smoking, whether their friends smoked and whether they had started smoking. Of those surveyed, 284 initially said their parents disapproved of their smoking and 19 percent became established smokers in the

The study showed that parents do play a big role in their children staying tobacco-free. Even parents who smoked, but who set nonsmoking expectations with their children, had just as much influence as parents who were tobacco-free. While other research has shown that peer pressure has a major influence on a teen’s

TODAY – Some wonderful goals can be met in the coming months, as long as you don’t get bogged down by ineffective alliances. Avoid this by, first and foremost, always striving to be your own person. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Watch out for a hotshot salesperson with a dazzling pitch, who will attempt to palm off what is clearly inferior merchandise. Don’t let your guard down for one minute. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Much give-and-take might be required between you and your one-and-only. A lack of consideration on your part would do great harm, with wounded feelings resulting. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – If a friend who has been kind to you many times in the past is now in need of your support, don’t disappear. It’s time to step up. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Don’t put needless strain on a good friendship by making too many unreasonable demands. If you’re inconsiderate, you’re likely to break up the relationship for good. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – You may operate with great effectiveness in a competitive development, but your accomplishments will mean little if you use tactics that are dishonest or underhanded. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Surprisingly, someone who always endorses your ideas might be diametrically opposed to your way of thinking. Don’t use forcefulness to compel compliance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – If this should turn out to be a financially trying day, don’t further aggravate the situation by yielding to extravagant inclinations. Live within your means. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Normally, you strive to be considerate with everyone you encounter. However, for some reason today, you might put your interests above all others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – It’s not like you to fail to display proper gratitude to those who do you special favors, yet that might be the case today. Sadly, it could leave a scar. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Owing to an inability to accurately judge another’s character, you could form a relationship with someone who has a questionable reputation. Don’t make any permanent commitments. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – To acquire something you want, you might deliberately step on someone’s toes. You’d be smart to make sure the prize is worth the price. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – If you find that companions are not as infatuated with your plans as you are, be prepared to either compromise or go your way alone. Don’t force your desires on others.

behavior, this study, according to National Institute on Drug Abuse, also found that strong parental influence often overpowers peer pressure when it comes to smoking. To summarize, teens, on the whole, listen and obey their parents when they deliver a strong clear message about smoking. Dr. Wallace: I’m 16, and my brother is 17. He has been dating for more than a year and has dated several different girls. I’m not allowed to date until I’m 17 “when I will be able to control oversexed boys.” I don’t think this is fair. Do you? – Nameless, Lake Charles, La. Nameless: I receive many, many letters such as yours

8SUDOKU

from girls who have a more strict set of dating rules than their brothers. My answer is always the same. Those parents need to rethink this double standard when it concerns their sons’ and daughters’ dating regulations. Parents have the duty to teach their children equally about all the responsibilities of dating and to instill equally high moral standards in regards to sexual behavior. And the age to commence dating should be the same for all teen siblings. Dr. Wallace: I’m 17 and met a 21-year-old guy at a graduation party. We really hit it off. He asked me for my phone number, and I gave it to him. Last night, he called and asked me out. I told him

to call me back in a few days and I would give him an answer. I talked to my parents, and they said the guy was too old for me, and I couldn’t go out with him. Dr. Wallace, I read where males mature emotionally much later than females, so this 21-year-old guy and I should be on the same emotional level. Isn’t this a good argument to get my parents to allow me to date this guy? – Dee, Boston, Mass. Dee: Nice try! While boys lag behind girls both physically and emotionally for quite some time, the guys do catch up with the girls somewhere around the age of 17.

8CROSSWORD

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Can you spot the second chance? Gioacchino Rossini, an Italian opera composer who died in 1868, said, “One cannot judge ‘Lohengrin’ from a first hearing, and I certainly do not intend to hear it a second time.” At the bridge table, do not judge a deal totally from your first glance; give it a second look to check that you have not missed something. So, have a second slice of toast this morning. South is in four spades. West leads the heart king and continues with the heart queen. How should declarer plan the play? Pre-empts are a pain. South’s sequence shows a very strong four-spade bid, because an immediate four-spade overcall would also be strong. When you intervene over a preempt, assume your partner has six or seven points and base your actions appropriately. So, jumping straight to four spades suggests around a working 20-count. This sequence promises more. Here, of course, North couldn’t care less! South has nine top tricks: six spades, one diamond and two clubs. At first glance, he needs the club finesse to work. However, there is a second chance – diamonds might break 3-3. After ruffing the second heart, declarer should cash the spade ace, then play the diamond ace and another diamond. Suppose East wins and leads a third heart. Declarer ruffs high and plays another diamond. In a moment, South will draw trumps ending with dummy’s spade 10 and cash the high diamond. But note that if diamonds had split 4-2, the club finesse would still have been available. For more on this deal, tune in tomorrow.
