Driving the DUI debate DeKalb County residents split on lowering alcohol limit

American Liquors owner Louis Schoenburg looks at wine bottles in his DeKalb store. Schoenburg is against lowering the threshold for drunken driving from 0.08 percent to 0.05 percent for blood-alcohol content, as recommended by the National Transportation Safety Board in May. He described any proposed legislation to do so as “extremist” and hostile to the hospitality industry. By DAVID THOMAS firstname.lastname@example.org Sarah Riccardi knows people who have been charged with drunken driving and people who have died in crashes caused by alcohol. “It seems people go out and have a drink, and they don’t think about it when getting behind the wheel,” said Riccardi, a 25-year-old Sycamore resident. As the owner of Fatty’s Pub & Grille, Jeff Dobie also cares about who might be driving while drunk. This is why he has organized his own “drunk bus” that can take people home if they’ve had too much to drink. “No one wants to encourage drinking and driving,” Dobie said. “That is one of the most foolish things someone can do with their lives.” They are on the opposite sides of an emerging discussion about lowering the

legal blood-alcohol limit for drunken driving. Riccardi favors lowering the limit; Dobie opposes it. Reducing the legal driving limit from
0.08 percent blood-alcohol content to 0.05 percent was among the 19 suggestions the chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board made in May for reducing the threat of drunken driving. A man who weighs 170 pounds will reach 0.05 percent BAC if he consumes three drinks in one hour on an empty stomach, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. By the same measure, a woman who weighs 137 pounds will reach 0.05 percent BAC on two drinks. The same man would reach 0.08 percent by consuming four drinks, while the same woman would reach 0.08 percent on three drinks. Proponents of a change say people with a blood-alcohol content of 0.05 percent are impaired, and say the measure has been proven to reduce traffic fatalities in

NSA director: Programs disrupted attacks By CONNIE CASS and DONNA CASSATA The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The director of the National Security Agency vigorously defended once-secret surveillance programs as an effective tool in keeping America safe, telling Congress on Wednesday that the information collected disrupted dozens of terrorist attacks without offering details. In his first congressional testimony since revelations about the
top-secret operations, Army Gen. Keith Alexander insisted that the public needs to know more about how the programs operate amid increasing unease about rampant government snooping and fears that Americans’ civil liberties are being Keith trampled. Alexander “I do think it’s important that we get this right, and I want the American people
to know that we’re trying to be transparent here, protect civil liberties and privacy but also the security of this country,” Alexander told a Senate panel. He described the steps the government takes once it suspects a terrorist organiEdward zation is about to Snowden act – all within the laws approved by Congress and under stringent oversight from
the courts. He said the programs led to “disrupting or contributing to the disruption of terrorist attacks,” but he did not give details on the terror plots. Half a world away, Edward Snowden, the former contractor who fled to Hong Kong and leaked documents about the programs, said he would fight any U.S. attempts to extradite him. American law enforcement officials are building a case against him but

Many DeKalb County residents are surveying the damage today after a series of strong thunderstorms ripped through the area Wednesday. The first wave of storms came through around 4:30 p.m. and brought down several trees, power lines and telephone poles in southern parts of the county, including Somonauk and Shabbona, leaving about 5,400 customers in DeKalb County without power, said Paul Callighan, external affairs manager for ComEd. “We’ve had outages all through the county,” he said. The National Weather Service confirmed a tornado was seen near Somonauk in southeast DeKalb County. It touched down south of Suydam Road and Route 23 around 5 p.m. “The radar was showing strong rotation,” said Gilbert Sebenste, staff meteorologist at Northern Illinois University. With the storms taking down trees and power lines, Sebenste said the winds were as strong as 60 to 80 mph. Callighan said there were many trees and power lines down along roads in Shabbona and Somonauk with many power outages in these areas and the Genoa, Waterman and Hinckley areas as well. As of 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, ComEd was still working to restore power for more than 2,250 customers, he said. But Callighan said ComEd had prepared for the severe weather earlier Wednesday by opening up a storm command center with extra staffing at its regional headquarters in Rockford. He said crews had also been reassigned to be available on a 24-hour rotating basis to work through the night.

The Associated Press COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – A wildfire fueled by hot temperatures, gusty winds and thick, bone-dry forests has destroyed 92 homes, damaged five more and prompted more than 7,000 residents northeast of Colorado Springs to flee, sheriff’s official said Wednesday. A separate Colorado wildfire to the south has destroyed 20 structures and prompted evacuations of about 250 residents and nearly 1,000 inmates at medium-security prison. To the north, another fire burned in Rocky Mountain National Park. Wildfires also were burning in New Mexico, Oregon and California, where a smokejumper was killed fighting one of dozens of lightning-sparked fires. Crews were so busy battling blazes across the West that the U.S. Forest Service said Wednesday it was mobilizing a pair of Defense Department cargo planes to help – a step taken only when all of the Forest Service’s contracted tankers already are in use. The fire near Colorado Springs, one of several that broke out Tuesday along Colorado’s Front Range, has prompted evacuation orders and pre-evacuation notices to between 9,000 and 9,500 people and about 3,500 homes and businesses, sheriff’s officials said.

A slurry bomber flies over homes as it prepares to drop fire retardant on the Black Forest Fire northeast of Colorado Springs on Tuesday. Some Colorado Springs residents were warned to be ready to evacuate, mostly because of a fear of flying embers spreading the fire into the state’s second-largest city. Sheriff’s officials also evacuated part of neighboring Elbert County, including two camps with a total of about 1,250 children and adults. The smell of smoke and bits of ash drifted into Denver, about 60 miles to
the north, where the haze blocked the sun. No injuries or deaths have been reported, but El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa said officials were trying to confirm the whereabouts of one person reported missing Wednesday. Firefighters tried to go where the person was last seen but were turned back twice because it was too hot, he said.
Amid controversy, girl gets transplant The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA – A 10-year-old girl whose efforts to qualify for an organ donation spurred public debate over how organs are allocated underwent a successful double-lung transplant on Wednesday, a family spokeswoman said. Sarah Murnaghan, who suffers from severe cystic fibrosis, received new lungs from an adult donor at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, spokeswoman Tracy Simon said. The Murnaghan family said it was “thrilled” to share the news that Sarah was out of surgery. “Her doctors are very pleased with both her progress during the procedure and her prognosis for recovery,” the family said in a statement. During double-lung transplants, surgeons must open up the patient’s chest. Complications can include rejection of the new lungs and infection. Sarah went into surgery around 11 a.m. Wednesday, and the procedure lasted about six hours, her family said. “The surgeons had no challenges resizing and transplanting the donor lungs – the surgery went smoothly, and Sarah did extremely well,” it said. Sarah’s family and the family of another cystic fibrosis patient at the same hospital challenged transplant policy
that made children under 12 wait for pediatric lungs to become available or be offered lungs donated by adults only after adolescents and adults on the waiting list had been considered. They said pediatric lungs are rarely donated. Sarah’s health was deteriorating when a judge intervened in her case last week, giving her a chance at the much larger list of organs from adult donors. U.S. District Judge Michael Baylson ruled June 5 that Sarah and 11-year-old AP file photo
Sarah Murnaghan (left) lies in her hospital bed next to adopted sister Ella on May 30, the 100th day of her stay in Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Javier Acosta, of New York City, should be eligible for adult lungs. Critics warned there could be a downside to having judges intervene in the organ transplant system’s established procedures. Lung transplants are difficult procedures, and some experts say child patients tend to have more trouble with them than adults do. No other details about the donor lungs are known, including whether they came through the regular donor system or through public appeals. Sarah’s relatives, who are from Newtown Square, just west of Philadelphia, were “beyond excited” about her new lungs but were “keeping in mind that
someone had to lose a family member and they’re very aware of that and very appreciative,” family spokeswoman Maureen Garrity said Wednesday. The Murnaghan family received word about the donor lungs Tuesday night, Garrity said. Sarah’s mother, Janet Murnaghan, said in a Facebook post that the family was “overwhelmed with emotions” and thanked all her supporters. She said the donor’s family “has experienced a tremendous loss, may God grant them a peace that surpasses understanding.” The national organization that manages organ transplants, the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network, added Sarah to the adult waiting list after the judge’s ruling. Her transplant came two days before a hearing was scheduled on the family’s request for a broader injunction. The network has said 31 children under age 11 are on the waiting list for a lung transplant. Its executive committee held an emergency meeting this week but resisted making emergency rule changes for children under 12 who are waiting on lungs, instead creating a special appeal and review system to hear such cases. Sarah’s family “did have a legitimate complaint” about the rule that limited her access to adult lungs, said medical ethicist Arthur Caplan, of the NYU Langone Medical Center in New York.
Diaper duty just the start for millennial dads By BETH J. HARPAZ The Associated Press NEW YORK – Laura Radocaj of Vero Beach, Fla., was warned when she was pregnant with twins that motherhood would be harder than she imagined – especially because she planned to go back to work while the twins were still babies. “But this has been the easiest transition,” said Radocaj, 28, who works from home in corporate communications. So what’s her secret? Her husband, Marco, also 28, puts in just as much time with child care and housework as she does, even though he works fulltime for an air-conditioning company. “If your partner is splitting things 50-50, it’s easy,” said Laura. “Before, when everyone made motherhood seem like such a big deal, men weren’t chipping in as much.”

Something is changing with today’s young fathers. By their own accounts, by their wives’ testimony, and according to time-use studies and other data, more men are doing more around the house, from packing school lunches and doing laundry to getting up in the middle of the night with a screaming infant. “If it’s not my job, then it’s her job, and that wouldn’t be fair,” said Marco. But it’s not just about sharing chores. For dads in their 20s and 30s, being an involved father is part of their identity. They blog about changing diapers, they chat nonchalantly with colleagues about breastfeeding and they trade recipes for baby food while working out with guys at the gym. Part of why dads are doing more around the house may be that women are doing more in the workplace. A study from the Pew Research Center this month found that mothers are the
breadwinners in a record 40 percent of families. At the same time, the number of stay-at-home dads is twice what it was 10 years ago – although still a relatively small number at 176,000. And in two-thirds of married couples with children under 18, both parents work, according to the U.S. Census. For their part, the new dads say they want things divided equally. Fatherhood, says Jeremy Foster, 37, of Kansas City, Mo., has gone from a “provide, protect scenario, to a team effort, especially nowadays with couples raising children where both work full-time.” At one point, when Sophia, 1, wasn’t sleeping well, Foster even moved into the nursery so his wife, a social worker, could get enough sleep. “I’d rock Sophia and get her back to sleep so my wife wasn’t doing all the work,” said Foster, a creative director and designer for an online platform called CD2 Learning.

Walk emphasizes support, cancer research More than 300 sign up for Relay For Life on Friday By FELIX SARVER firstname.lastname@example.org SYCAMORE – Relay For Life gives Chris Atherton hope for the future. Atherton, publicity chair for the DeKalb County Relay For Life, met a woman last weekend who was diagnosed with cancer 49 years ago. She didn’t realize she had a tumor until several years later. The resources weren’t there for
her to find out sooner, Atherton said. Since then, resources such as a 24-hour hotline for cancer support have been developed, along with screenings and research to help prevent and fight cancer. “It is remarkable to think about even in the 16 years since my mom was diagnosed that research for cancer has improved,” Atherton said. The DeKalb County Relay For Life and American Cancer Society will raise money to support more programs, research and tools with the relay event Friday and Saturday at Sycamore High School, 555 Spartan Trail, Sycamore.
In the past 17 years, Relay For Life events have raised more than $1.5 million in DeKalb County. By Wednesday, participants had raised more than half of the event’s $100,000 goal, according to the Relay For Life of DeKalb County website. More than 300 participants on 41 teams had registered by Wednesday. Those who attend can expect fun activities for children, other fundraising events and a silent auction for items including gift cards, quilts and luggage with hotel packages. After the opening ceremony on Friday, cancer survivors, caregivers, teams and any oth-
er interested participants will walk laps as a way to symbolize how cancer doesn’t rest. Survivors walk the first lap to recognize their battle with cancer, while caregivers walk the second lap. Teams, such as Atherton’s Random Angels, are invited to take turns walking relay laps next. Usually, caregivers walk with the survivor they care for during the caregiver lap, but even caregivers who lost someone are encouraged to walk, Atherton said. A caregiver is anyone who has cared for or is still caring for someone with cancer in any capacity. “It’s important for those
people who are there such as myself or other people who has lost their immediate cancer survivor, because we are still caring for people with cancer,” Atherton said. Relay For Life is a positive experience for everyone involved, said Barb Schultz, entertainment chair for the group and a nurse at The Cancer Center at Kishwaukee Community Hospital. Even if someone hasn’t been affected by cancer in some form, they should attend so they can learn about cancer prevention, she said. “People think of it as depressing,” Schultz said. “But it’s very uplifting.”

Suspects sought in DeKalb armed robbery DeKALB – Two men stole cash and a cell phone at gunpoint from two other men about 10:20 p.m. Tuesday, DeKalb police said. The victims parked near an apartment complex in the 800 block of Russell Road, DeKalb, got out of the car and were approached by two men, Lt. Bob Redel said. One of the men pulled out a handgun and demanded money and illegal drugs, but the two victims told him they had none and tried to walk away. The robbers followed the two men, and ended up taking cash, a wallet and the phone from one of them, Redel said. The robbers fled on foot. “No one was injured; no one fought back,” Redel said. The gunman was 5 feet, 7 inches tall, with a medium build, while the other man was between 6 feet and 6 feet, 3 inches tall with a slender build. Both were black and wearing dark clothing, Redel said. Anyone with information about the case should contact DeKalb police at 815-7488400, or DeKalb County Crime Stoppers at 815-895-3272. They also can make anonymous reports through iWatch, a free smartphone app, or through the iWatch website, www.cityofdekalb.com/Police/iwatch.htm.

Consultants hired for library expansion By DAVID THOMAS firstname.lastname@example.org DeKALB – The DeKalb Library Board formally approved the contracts of Nagle Hartray and Owner Services Group as the architect and owner’s representative, respectively, for the library’s expansion project Wednesday. The two firms will be paid a percentage of the total cost of the project, said library Director Dee Coover. She said she is using the estimated amount of $25.3 million, which includes the cost of construction, land costs and attorney fees.
Funding sources DeKalb Public Library expansion funding: n State grant: $11.6 million n City bonds: $6.5 million n Bank loans: $2.8 million n DeKalb TIF funds: $2 million n Library reserves: $900,000 Assuming the project sticks to that $25.3 million price, Owner Services Group will receive $581,268, or 2.29 percent of the total cost. Nagle Hartray will receive $1.96 million for its work, or 7.73 percent.
As board member Al Genis pointed out, the library will have spent $2.5 million on services other than construction. Coover said the total amount of money for consultants is less than the percentage the city of DeKalb is paying for the new police station and other projects in the state. “At this point, we’re certainly under what is the norm,” Coover said. Nagle Hartray Architecture was the firm that designed the original plans for the library’s 46,000-squarefoot expansion. “I think this is a real milestone for us as well as
for you,” said Don McKay, a principal for Nagle Hartray. “We’ve been working together for five years. Now the fun is really going to start.” Coover said Owner Services Group provides the library with construction expertise it does not have. Coover said it is undecided whether the library will hire a professional fundraiser for the project. She added they have to hire a construction manager as well. The monthslong saga of library officials trying to acquire the $12.4 million local match to secure a state construction grant will end
next week, Coover said. She said the local match will be in the bank by Tuesday, and officials will sign the contract with the state by the June 30 deadline. Library officials recently announced they received an additional $3.1 million from the state, raising the amount of money they could receive to $11.6 million. But to fully fund the original expansion, the library would have to borrow up to $1 million from a private bank. Officials said they will pay back the $3 million in private loans using fundraising, not additional tax dollars.
Economist, Nobel winner dies at 86 The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Robert W. Fogel, a University of Chicago economist whose study of the economics of slavery sparked a furious debate in academia and later helped garner him a Nobel prize, has died. He was 86. The university announced that Fogel died on Tuesday, reporting that the family said he died after a brief illness. Fogel wrote Robert 22 books in W. Fogel all – the last one published in April – and, according to the school, was an active faculty member in the Department of Economics and the Booth School of Business who was working on three more books at the time of his death. Fogel rose to prominence
among economists in the early 1960s when as a Ph.D. student at Johns Hopkins University he conducted a statistical analysis of the impact railroads had on the nation’s economy in the 19th century. That led to a book, “Railroads and American Economic Growth: Essays in Economic History,” in which he contended that the railroads had a far smaller impact on the economy than was widely believed at the time. But it was his work on slavery that brought Fogel the most attention. In “Time on the Cross: The Economics of American Negro Slavery,” a book published in 1974, Fogel and co-author Stanley Engerman “challenged the long-held assumption, by then taken as fact, that slavery was unprofitable, inefficient and in decline in the years leading up to the Civil War,” according to an article released by the school.
The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – A suburban Chicago mother and caretaker planned for more than a week to kill a 14-year-old boy with severe autism, prosecutors said Wednesday at a bond hearing for the women, both charged with first-degree murder in the boy’s stabbing death. A Cook County judge denied bond for Dorothy Spourdalakis, 50, and caretaker Jolanta Skrodzka, 40. Neither woman spoke at the hearing. The boy’s father and uncle found Alex Spourdalakis, 14, on Sunday stabbed numerous times in the chest and lying on his bed in a
second-floor River Grove apartment, authorities said. Spourdalakis and Skrodzka were found nearby, uninjured but disoriented. “Their initial plan was to give him an overdose of drugs so he would die,” Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Brittney Burns said during the bond hearing. “The defendants took turns in the evening to check the victim’s breathing and pulse. After several hours, Dorothy Spourdalakis took a knife from the kitchen, went to the victim’s bedroom and stabbed him four times in the chest.” Spourdalakis also slit the boy’s wrist, Burns said.

A motorist puts fuel in his car’s gas tank at a service station Tuesday in Springfield. The Transportation for Illinois Coalition is recommending eliminating the 19-cents-a-gallon motor fuel tax with a 10 percent levy that is tied to the price of gasoline at a time when fuel efficiency is improving.

Transportation group wants new Ill. gas tax By JOHN O’CONNOR SPRINGFIELD – Illinois transit advocates want to tie a tax on gasoline to the price at the pump as part of an aggressive fundraising effort to get a toehold on what they say are rapidly deteriorating roads, rails and bridges. The Transportation for Illinois Coalition is pushing legislation to impose a 9.5 percent tax on the wholesale price of fuel – adding about 14 cents a gallon at today’s prices – along with vehicle license and registration fee hikes to bring in about $800 million a year, coalition co-chairman Doug Whitley told The Associated Press. That’s still a far cry from what the coalition says is a price tag of more than $65 billion in the next five years to catch up with and modernize roads and mass transit. And it comes at the same time the $31 billion statewide capital construction program adopted in 2009 expires, drop-

Bill Fleishli, executive vice president of the Illinois Petroleum Marketers, however, criticized the idea, saying it would pinch retailers who would have to pay the tax upfront at the same time higher gas prices slow sales. Fleishli pointed to a legislative report that shows Illinois spends more on transportation than all but six states and said it needs to stop diverting transit-dedicated dollars to other purposes. Whitley laid out the plan to the AP in advance of discussing it publicly.

in higher automobile operating costs because of poor road conditions. “We face a transportation infrastructure crisis in the state of Illinois, and we do not have the revenues to do the fixes that we need in order to make sure our highways are operating at peak efficiency and our bridges are safe for travel,” said House Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie, a Chicago Democrat sponsoring legislation to implement the plan. Currie and the legislation’s Senate sponsor, Transportation Committee Chairman Martin Sandoval, plan hearings on the issue before taking up the matter in the fall session of the General Assembly. The wholesale fuel tax would replace the current 19-cents-a-gallon motor-fuel tax. Indexing the fee to the price of gasoline would mean that at today’s statewide average price of $4.20 per gallon, motorists would pay about 33 cents.

2nd Ill. prosecutor OKs concealed carry By JIM SUHR The Associated Press ST. LOUIS – A second Illinois prosecutor has decided to let his county’s residents carry concealed weapons even as the governor weighs whether to allow it statewide, reflecting surging impatience among local law enforcement months after a federal court tossed out the state’s last-in-the-nation ban. Randolph County State’s Attorney Jeremy Walker’s announcement Tuesday that he’ll stop prosecuting the prohibition on guns in public came just days after his counterpart in suburban St. Louis’ Madison County issued a similar declaration. The sheriff of southern Illinois’ Clinton County also has joined suit, saying any armed person found in his jurisdiction from counties that allow concealed
Randolph County State’s Attorney Jeremy Walker speaks at a news conference May 10 in Chester. On Tuesday, Walker announced he will allow the county’s citizens to carry concealed guns in public. weapons won’t be arrested for packing heat. The Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals late
last year threw out the state’s prohibition, giving Illinois lawmakers a deadline of June 9 to come up with a measure
allowing concealed carry. The state’s General Assembly signed off on a bill that’s now before Gov. Pat Quinn, who hasn’t indicated whether he’ll sign it ahead of a newly extended July 9 cutoff. A spokesman for Quinn, in an emailed reply to The Associated Press’ request for an interview, said Wednesday only that “the governor is reviewing the bill carefully.” But arguing that enough was enough, Walker insisted Wednesday “it is time to act” in his county now that the original deadline passed with no statewide resolution. Walker said he was not swayed by Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons’ announcement last week to let gun owners carry weapons if they meet certain requirements, which in both counties now include having a valid firearm owners identification card and not
being barred otherwise from having a weapon. “It’s definitely something I’ve been considering quite a while, and I think I’m on strong constitutional ground,” said Walker, put off by months of Statehouse wrangling over the issue since the ban was nullified. “I don’t want to do something just to get my name in the paper. But (state lawmakers) could have resolved this issue in January and had something in effect by now.” Such county-by-county permissiveness has drawn fire from other state prosecutors, many of them arguing state’s attorneys who allow concealed weapons in public are wrongly making laws instead of carrying out their obligations to enforce them. The Illinois State Police called the halting of concealed-carry prosecutions in Madison and Randolph counties “irresponsible.”
Madigan plans new vote on Ill. pension reform By JOHN O’CONNOR and KERRY LESTER The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan is planning a fresh vote on his plan to overhaul the public-employee pension system, despite a request by the governor for compromise with the Senate. Madigan, a Chicago Democrat, filed legislation Wednesday identical to a bill the House approved last month that failed by a wide margin in the Senate. It doesn’t Michael mention any Madigan inclusion of a rival proposal by Senate President John Cullerton, as requested by Gov. Pat Quinn Monday as a compromise way
“At this point there is no clear indication that a resolution will be reached by next week since the Speaker has made no commitment to call Cullerton’s pension plan or a compromise bill.” Rikeesha Phelon Spokeswoman for Senate President John Cullerton to move forward on fixing the state’s nearly $100 billion shortfall in funding employee pensions. Quinn has called a special session in Springfield for next week to address the issue. The continued impasse between the two leading lawmakers begs the question of whether it’s possible to reach a compromise by next week. Madigan’s spokesman, Steve Brown, said Wednesday that the hybrid proposal sought by Quinn was “unlikely to pass” so the speaker is
still pushing his own proposal. “I think he was pretty direct about the proposal that he thinks would get the job done,” Brown said. Cullerton spokeswoman Rikeesha Phelon said that John the Senate pres- Cullerton ident was “committed to advancing” the dual proposal supported by Quinn. Phelon was speculative about pension reform being ap-
proved next week. “At this point there is no clear indication that a resolution will be reached by next week since the Speaker has made no commitment to call Cullerton’s pension plan or a compromise bill,” Phelon said. Madigan’s plan would unilaterally impose pension changes on state workers and raise the retirement age, by most accounts saving the state the most money of any proposal. Cullerton’s plan would give state workers choices over what benefits to receive in retirement, which he contends would give it a better chance of surviving a court challenge. Quinn proposed passing both in a single bill, essentially making Cullerton’s proposal a backup plan in case Madigan’s solution is thrown out in court. But Madigan suggested it was too complicated and
called on Quinn to persuade the Senate to approve the House-supported option. The one change in the new version of Madigan’s plan is that its implementation would be delayed until June 2014, which means it can now be approved with fewer votes. Madigan’s legislation will be presented at a House committee meeting Tuesday, the day before the full Legislature convenes. Illinois’ five public employee retirement systems are $97 billion short of what’s needed to pay benefits that were promised to workers and retirees. The shortfall is due largely to years of the Legislature voting to skip or short the state’s payments. Republican leaders, as well as the governor, have blasted Cullerton and Madigan for failing to come to an agreement.

It passed overwhelmingly, but not unanimously, by the nation’s largest Protestant denomination at its annual meeting in Houston.
Feds: Bulger at center of murders in Boston BOSTON – Reputed gangster James “Whitey” Bulger was a “hands-on killer” responsible for “murder and mayhem” in Boston for almost 30 years, a federal prosecutor told a jury Wednesday as Bulger’s highly anticipated racketeering trial began. Bulger’s lawyer acknowledged that Bulger made millions through drugs, illegal gambling and loan-sharking, but told the jury that three ex-mobsters who have pinned murders on Bulger cannot be believed. Each of the men received “extraordinary” deals from prosecutors in exchange for their cooperation, defense attorney J.W. Carney Jr. said.

Turkish government open to a vote to calm protesters The ASSOCIATED PRESS ISTANBUL – Turkey’s government Wednesday offered a concrete gesture aimed at ending nearly two weeks of street protests, proposing a referendum on a development project in Istanbul that triggered demonstrations that have become the biggest challenge to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s 10-year tenure. Protesters expressed doubts about the offer, however, and continued to converge in Taksim Square’s Gezi Park, epicenter of the anti-government protests that began in Istanbul 13 days ago and spread across the country. At times, police have broken up demonstrations using tear gas, water cannon and rubber bullets. The protests erupted May 31 after a violent police crackdown on a peaceful sit-in by activists objecting to a development project that would replace Gezi Park with a replica Ottoman-era barracks. They then spread to dozens of cities, rallying tens of thousands of
people each night. In a skirmish late Wednesday in Ankara, police used tear gas and water cannons to break up some 2,500 protesters who set up makeshift barricades on a road leading to government offices. The proposal came after Erdogan, who had been defiant and uncompromising in recent days, met with a group of 11 activists, including academics, students and artists, in Ankara. However, groups involved in the protests in Taksim and the park boycotted the meeting, saying they weren’t invited and the attendees didn’t represent them. Greenpeace said it didn’t participate because of an “environment of violence” in the country, while Taksim Solidarity, which has been coordinating much of the occupation of Gezi Park, said it had not been invited. The group reiterated its demands that Gezi remain a public park, that abusive senior officials be fired, and all detained protesters be released – not issues the refer-
endum would address. But the discussion was the first sign that Erdogan was looking for an exit from the showdown, and came hours after some European leaders expressed concern about recent strong-armed police tactics and hopes the prime minister would soften his stance. Huseyin Celik, spokesman for Erdogan’s Islamic-rooted Justice and Development party, announced it would consider holding a referendum over the development project. But he said any vote would exclude the planned demolition of a cultural center that the protesters also oppose, insisting it was in an earthquake-prone area and had to come down. In a more defiant note, he said the ongoing sit-in in Gezi Park would not be allowed to continue “until doomsday” – a sign that authorities’ patience is running out. But Celik also quoted Erdogan as saying that police would be investigated, and any found to have used excessive force against protesters would be punished.
Opponents: Measure would criminalize social drinking • DUI Continued from page A1 Australia as well as European countries including France, Germany, Italy and others. Opponents say it would effectively criminalize social drinking and could hurt local businesses that rely on alcohol sales for revenue. They also point out that most of the people found to be under the influence in fatal crashes have well above the legal limit of alcohol in their system at the time of the crash. “The research clearly shows that drivers with a BAC above 0.05 are impaired and at a significantly greater risk of being involved in a crash where someone is killed or injured,” NTSB Chairman Deborah Hershman said in a statement. The NTSB said the number of fatalities caused by alcohol-impaired drivers was less than 10,000 in 2011. In 2012, only one of DeKalb County’s six traffic deaths was the result of alcohol, DeKalb County Sheriff Roger Scott said. DeKalb police officers made 229 DUI arrests in 2012, a 46 percent increase from 2011. About 10 percent of those arrests were related to a crash. In addition to having a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent or higher, Illinois law
also defines someone as being “under the influence” if the driver has used an illegal substance or is using medication that impairs him. However, drivers with a BAC between 0.05 and 0.08 can be charged with driving under the influence if additional evidence of impairment is found, according to the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office. Even with the federal recommendation, it would be up to lawmakers in each state to implement the lower threshold. State Rep. Robert Pritchard, R-Hinckley, said he wanted to see more research on the topic before pushing to lower the legal limit. “You cannot control your vehicle while intoxicated,” Pritchard said. “I don’t think anyone wants to cause an accident. They just think they’re in control when they’re not. I’d rather look at the range of solutions that will get us to the desired outcome, rather than assuming that lowering the blood level will do that.” It would be at least a year before Illinois lawmakers could tackle the issue. DeKalb Police Chief Gene Lowery said he did not know how lowering the legal threshold would affect his officers or residents in the area. However, he said he would side with whatever saves lives. “When you think about
consuming alcohol and getting behind the wheel of a vehicle, it’s a ton of metal rolling down the street,” Lowery said. “Any way you’re impaired, the consequences of a mistake could be devastating.” Factors including a person’s weight, gender and food consumed before drinking, as well as the kind of alcohol consumed, can all influence how quickly a person’s system absorbs alcohol, Lowery said. Louis Schoenburg, owner of American Liquors in DeKalb, described the efforts to lower the legal limit as extremist and hostile to the hospitality industry. “The main problem is drivers who drink with significant excess – well above 0.08,” Schoenburg said. “To start arresting and prosecuting moderate drinkers would be a nightmare for the country.” The Illinois Secretary of State Office’s website listed 0.16 percent as being the most frequently recorded blood-alcohol level for drivers involved in fatal crashes in 2008. Scott, a supporter of lowering the legal driving limit, said he would support any measures intended to reduce DUI fatalities. “It’s important to remember,” Scott said, “that officers will have a reason to be pulling them over in the first place.”
The ASSOCIATED PRESS DES MOINES, Iowa – Corn farmers are feeling the impact of a cool, wet spring but are still expected to bring in a record crop this year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said in its monthly report released Wednesday that farmers are expected to bring in 14 billion bushels of corn. That’s 135 million bushels less than last month’s estimate, reflecting the impact of the cooler spring. But that would still beat the 13.1 billion bushel record, set in 2009. Last year, farmers harvested only about 11 billion bushels because of the drought. The changes are not ex-
pected to significantly affect food prices for consumers. The USDA said the amount of corn expected to be harvested per acre – the yield – will be reduced to 156.5 bushels per acre, down from 158 bushels estimated a month ago. Last year’s drought-withered corn yielded 123 bushels per acre. Farmers in the Midwest received a short break from rain between May 13 and 19 and in that period corn planting advanced from 28 percent to 71 percent complete. That matched the weekly record of 43 percentage points sent in May 1992, the USDA said. However, rain and cool temperatures later in May further delayed progress.
In some parts of Illinois the corn looks as good as ever, said Jerry Gulke, an Illinois farmer who runs a farm management and market advisory business based in Chicago. He toured 400 acres of Illinois farmland on Tuesday. “We have record or near record crops in some places,” he said. “I saw some of the best stands in years.” The eastern corn belt states including Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio appear to have a very good corn crop. The question is how bad it will be for Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, and North and South Dakota, said Chad Hart, an agriculture economist at Iowa State University.
Alexander answered senators’ questions • NSA Continued from page A1 have yet to bring charges. “I am not here to hide from justice; I am here to reveal criminality,” Snowden said of the surveillance programs in an interview with the South China Morning Post. In plain-spoken, measured tones, Alexander answered senators’ questions in an open session and promised to provide additional information to the Senate Intelligence Committee in closed session on Thursday. The director of national intelligence has declassified information on two thwarted attacks – one in New York, the other in Chicago – and Alexander said he was pressing for more disclosures. But he also warned that revelations about the secret programs have eroded agency capabilities and, as a result, the U.S. and its allies won’t be as safe as they were two weeks ago. “Some of these are still going to be classified and should be, because if we tell the terrorists every way that we’re going to track them, they will get through and
Americans will die,” he said, adding that he would rather be criticized by people who think he’s hiding something “than jeopardize the security of this country.” Alexander said he was seriously concerned that Snowden, a former employee with Booz Allen Hamilton, had access to key parts of the NSA network, a development that demands a closer examination of how well the agency oversees contract employees. Alexander said Snowden was a system administrator who didn’t have visibility into the whole NSA network but could access key portions of it. The director was questioned at length by senators seeking information on exactly how much data the NSA gathers through programs to collect millions of telephone records and keep tabs on Internet activity as well as the legal backing for the activities. Members of the House and Senate Intelligence panels and key leaders have been briefed on the programs and have expressed their support for the operations as a valid tool in the terrorism fight. House Speaker John Boeh-
ner, R-Ohio, said Wednesday that the programs are constitutional and “very important to the security of the American people and they help us in a big way to address the terrorist threat that does in fact remain.” But rank-and-file lawmakers who haven’t been privy to the details expressed concerns and bewilderment, reflected in the comments of several senators at the hearing and one exchange between Republican Sen. Mike Johanns and Alexander. Johanns asked the NSA director whether the government could check and see what an individual is searching for through Google, or sending in email. Alexander said once an individual has been identified, the issue is referred to the FBI. “The FBI will then look at that and say what more do we need to now look at that individual themselves. So there are issues and things that they would then look at. It’s passed to them,” Alexander said. “So the answer to the question is yes,” Johanns said. “Yes, you could. I mean, you can get a court order to do that,” Alexander said.

All parties walk a fine line on concealed carry
The real reasons GOP lags with young Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, won among voters over the age of 30, but lost younger voters by 23 points. That statistic has gotten a lot of attention from Republicans, especially since they have now lost young voters in three presidential elections in a row. They worry that voting Democratic could be habit-forming for this generation. The party leadership’s postelection “autopsy” offered a superficial take on its challenge with young voters: It’s just social issues, and particularly Republican opposition to same sex marriage, that have turned them off. The College Republican National Committee has just released a detailed report on young voters that goes considerably beyond this conventional wisdom. It’s true that most polls find strong support for same sex marriage among young people. The report, mainly written by Winston Group pollster Kristen Soltis Anderson, tries to gauge how important the issue is in driving their votes. It finds that 26 percent of young voters favor same-sex marriage and wouldn’t vote for a candidate who opposes it even if they agreed with that candidate on most other issues. Some of those voters, maybe most of them, must lean toward the Democrats on issues other than same sex marriage. So Republicans are losing some young voters on this issue, but it may not be central to the party’s troubles. And young people aren’t socially liberal when it comes to abortion. In the College Republicans’ March survey, 51 percent of them believed abortion should be banned altogether or with exceptions in unusual circumstances. They aren’t all that liberal on immigration, either. About 65 percent of young voters favored deporting illegal immigrants, enforcing the law before offering them legal status, or offering them legal
VIEWS Ramesh Ponnuru status but not citizenship – all positions to the right of the immigration bill now being debated in the Senate. Young voters also consider climate change a low-priority issue. They are deeply concerned, on the other hand, about economic issues. And Republicans have a lot of work to do on them. A majority of young voters think the party’s economic policies played a big role in the recession. They don’t follow Republican politicians in thinking that higher taxes on the rich are higher taxes on small business. Although they tend to agree with Republicans about the future of entitlement programs for the elderly, they are much more worried about the here-and-now. (The report cites a survey showing 20 percent of young people had delayed marriage because of the economy.) They consider student-loan debt a major obstacle to their goals. And they give President Barack Obama credit for trying to help the economy, reduce their debt burden, and fix health care. Among those young voters who approve of Obama’s job performance, “trying” was the No. 1 word they used about him – as in, he has been trying to improve things. They think that public spending should be cut and that government is too big. Fighting big government is, however, a much lower priority for them than expanding the economy, reforming the safety net and controlling the national debt. To my eye, these findings suggest there is an opening among young people for Republicans who advance credible plans to reduce the cost of health care and college,
to foster job growth, to control the national debt and to address the other issues they consider important. Republicans will want those plans to involve shrinking the government, but that shouldn’t be their chief selling point. If they can do that – a big if, for many reasons – Republicans will also get credit from young voters for trying, whereas they now seem reflexively anti-Obama. It will also make them seem more intelligent, which is a quality that young people, according to the report, prize more than coolness. There are a lot of ways to slice the polling data. Dividing voters based on whether they have turned 30 is just one, and it can obscure some truths – for example, Obama carried voters aged between 30 and 39 by 13 points. One question the report doesn’t directly address is how much age and generation influence voting. Young voters are less likely than older voters to be married, white or Christian, all of which would make them less likely to be Republicans even if they were older. The party’s poor performance among young voters is partly a sign that they do badly with nonwhites and that nonwhites are a growing share of voters. It is probably a mistake for Republicans to spend a lot of time targeting young voters. They should concentrate more, for example, on doing better among nonwhite voters, which would improve their numbers among the young, too. And above all, they ought to have something more compelling to say about voters’ daily economic concerns. Young voters are just like their elders in wanting that.

It’s not the steel bars, concrete walls or men and women locked in their cells that catch my attention. It’s what they are doing – watching TV. And not just your standard television programs – but cable television. And guess who is paying for it? Illinois taxpayers. I know lots of people too poor to purchase cable TV. I know plenty of middle-class folks too frugal to buy it, too. In fact, for most of my life I’ve gone without cable. It’s not that I couldn’t afford it. But I had better things to spend my money on – like books. And yet, folks who pinch their own pennies and forgo cable TV subscriptions are being taxed so that criminals can watch the latest episode of “Mad Men.” That’s not right. Now, don’t get me wrong. Inmates ought to be fed nourishing
VIEWS Scott Reeder meals, live in a safe environment and be afforded the dignity a civilized society provides the incarcerated. But cable TV? Think again. The state spends $2.26 million a year on this luxury. Folks in Gov. Pat Quinn’s administration will tell you it isn’t tax dollars paying for this entertainment. In fact, they will tell you with a straight face that it’s paid for by the inmates themselves – with commissary profits. In other words, they say, profits from selling Snickers bars, toothpaste, Oreos and whatnot to prisoners pays for this amenity. To which I say horse hockey. Anyone who has covered a state budget for more than five minutes understands the concept of “fungibility.” That’s a fancy accounting way of saying
“money can get moved around.” The commissary profits in question could be used for other purposes, such as helping pay down the state’s backlog of bills. Those people waiting to be paid by the state – which owes its vendors billions – are more deserving of the money than an inmate sitting in his cell wanting to watch the latest episode of “Jersey Shore.” State Rep. Bill Mitchell, R-Forsyth, introduced legislation this year to eliminate this inmate perk, but the bill stagnated in committee. “I have constituents who have lost their jobs and are struggling to pay for cable television themselves. They are asking why they have to pay for inmates to watch TV,” Mitchell said. “Prison isn’t supposed to be a nice place where inmates sit around and watch Ricki Lake.”

So, when does a citizen have a right to bear arms? It depends on whom you ask. The issue has long been a murky one in Illinois, and it got cloudier still back in December when a federal court issued a ruling declaring unconstitutional the state’s ban on carrying concealed weapons. As part of that ruling, the court gave the Legislature 180 days to draft a pertinent bill, allowing weapons to be carried, within limits. The General Assembly did just that and sent a bill to the governor late last month. The governor, of course, is famous for taking extraordinary lengths to review legislation and he’s in no hurry to sign this one. Such is his deliberation that the state’s attorney general asked the courts for a 30-day stay of enforcement of its court order, which gives Illinois until July 9 to comply. The court of appeals is intent on Illinois eventually having a law that dictates exactly when and how citizens can carry weapons in public settings. Even if the governor signs the measure he now has, it would not take effect for another six months. Thus, prosecutors are being forced to come up with some opinions of their own to address things in the interim. One of the most prominent of those decisions occurred in Madison County last week, when State’s Attorney Thomas Gibbons laid out a series of seven conditions that all must be met in order for a citizen to legally carry concealed weapons. The provisions are not exactly exhaustive, but they serve a purpose – and that is to provide guidance to law enforcement. Police, of course, are the ones who must make the call as to whether a gun incident is an arrest-worthy offense. Gibbons’ seven rules are crystal clear and in writing for anyone who wishes to read them. Among them are valid firearm owner’s identification, self defense consideration, lack of criminal record, complete cooperation with law enforcement and more. He said his office will not prosecute law-abiding residents if they meet all the rules. Not one or two. All seven. The right to arms, of course, is granted in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, but the law has been equally guarded and scrutinized, tinkered with every so often so as to protect the general population from unscrupulous gun users, while at the same protecting our freedoms. As a result, a right granted by our forefathers has become so watered down as to leave it open to vast interpretation. That said, don’t expect gun debates to go away, even after concealed carry becomes the law in Illinois. The (Alton) Telegraph

Leaks show no data secret Members of Congress are calling for the prosecution of Edward Snowden for leaking the existence of far-reaching U.S. surveillance programs. Given that Snowden, 29, says he knew he was breaking the law to expose what he considered to be governmental abuse, he surely will be prosecuted. He may even desire it. Yet high-ranking members of Congress can’t get away with just calling for Snowden’s head and holding a few pro forma hearings on what his leaks have revealed. They need to engage in introspection about their failure to oversee and put a check on security subcontractors, a shadowy arm of the secret government that has mushroomed since the 9/11 attacks. Although he previously worked for the CIA, Snowden was not a government employee. He wasn’t even a high-ranking officer within Booz Allen Hamilton, the security contractor for which he worked. In interviews, Snowden has stated he was surprised that anyone in the U.S. security field, much less a low-level contractor, would have such broad access to phone call logs, email records and other communications of U.S. citizens. He said he felt obligated to “inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them.” Whether you see Snowden as a traitor or a hero, you should be alarmed that a private employee at his level could access so much personal data and use it for whatever purpose he decided. This fact alone reveals the government’s vast store of secret data isn’t secret at all. It is accessible to thousands upon thousands with security clearances, many of whom have not been adequately vetted. Some have compared Snowden to Army Pfc. Bradley Manning, another low-ranking computer specialist with a security clearance who, in a self-proclaimed act of conscience, leaked national security secrets. Yet there are big differences between the two. Manning was a member of the U.S. military, not a private firm, and he leaked a data dump of vast amounts of information, some of which arguably could be used to expose CIA agents and contacts. Snowden, by contrast, exposed the existence of a pair of surveillance programs the government was attempting to keep secret, not the targets of any surveillance. We agree that communications metadata could be a vital tool to ward off possible terrorist attacks. But use of such tracking must be highly focused, with safeguards to prevent misuse. Snowden has revealed gaping holes in the system, which Congress and President Barack Obama have enabled. Fresno (Calif.) Bee

STANLEY CUP GAME 1
Hawks, Bruins battle into 2nd OT AP photo
Kelly says Golson, Vanderdoes accountable BRIDGMAN, Mich. – Coach Brian Kelly says Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson (above) and UCLA defensive lineman Eddie Vanderdoes won’t be playing college football this fall for the same reason: accountability. “I really look at this as fairly clear-cut scenarios. Everett Golson didn’t live up to the standards and he’s held accountable. Eddie Vanderdoes had a standard to live up to and he was held accountable. So those aren’t that hard. I don’t have to spend much time thinking about it,” Kelly said Wednesday. Notre Dame disclosed two weeks ago that Golson, who helped the Fighting Irish go 12-0 during the regular season and get to the BCS title game against Alabama, was no longer enrolled in school. Golson revealed in a statement issued the next day by Notre Dame that he had been suspended for the fall semester for what he called poor academic judgment. Kelly announced last week the university would not release Vanderdoes, a standout high school recruit from Auburn, Calif., from his letter of intent so he can enroll at UCLA, meaning he can’t play football for the Bruins this fall and will lose a season of eligibility. Kelly was asked whether it was fair he was allowed to leave Cincinnati in 2009, where he had a contract to coach the Bearcats through the 2013 season, and take the Notre Dame job and begin coaching the Irish the next season and Vanderdoes can’t play this season. “I paid a million dollars in a buyout, too. There’s accountability in making those decisions,” Kelly said. “You can break the contract. He’s broken the contract and he’s going to go to another school. But there’s a level of accountability there.” Kelly said there are circumstances that he might let a player out of a letter of intent, but didn’t specify what those would be. – Wire report

Editor’s note: Game 1 of the Stanley Cup did not finish in time to be included in this edition. Head to Daily-Chronicle.com/sports to read complete coverage of the game. By ANDREW SELIGMAN The Associated Press CHICAGO – The Blackhawks got third-period goals from Dave Bolland and Johnny Oduya to tie the Boston Bruins 3-3 and send a riveting Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals to a second overtime. In the first championship meeting in 34 years between Original Six franchises, Milan Lucic scored twice and Patrice Bergeron added a power-play goal just over six minutes into
the third to give Boston a 3-1 lead. But the Hawks came storming back after that. A n d r e w Shaw picked off a clearing atGame 2 tempt by Torey Krug and fed vs. Boston, Bolland on a twoon-one rush to 7 p.m. Saturday, pull the Hawks NBC, AM-720 within one with 12 minutes left in regulation. Lucic then got stopped on a two-on-one by Corey Crawford midway through the third, and Oduya tied it for the Hawks when his shot from the point deflected off Andrew Ference
and bounced past Tuukka Rask. Just like that, the Blackhawks were back in it. Crawford fought off a big flurry by Boston in the closing minutes, and the game went to overtime with the Hawks outshooting Boston 39-25 after getting off to a slow start. The Bruins grabbed a 1-0 lead at the 13:11 mark of the opening period after David Krejci knocked Niklas Hjalmarsson off the puck along the boards behind the net.

DeKalb football coach Matt Weckler introduces the coaching staff to community members Wednesday at a meet-and-greet for the DeKalb football coaching staff at River Heights Golf Course in DeKalb.
Weckler, staff set to change culture By STEVE NITZ firstname.lastname@example.org DeKALB – There were times after Matt Weckler was named DeKalb’s football coach when he was laughed at after introducing himself around the school. Students couldn’t believe he would take the coaching job at a program that has made the playoffs just once – 2010 – since 1989. What Weckler wants to do is change the culture at the school. He wants it to be a program kids want to play at, where the playoffs are an expectation.

athletics, make it more of a community thing and community-driven,” Weckler said. “We want to get the community to want DeKalb athletics to be good and to push kids to participate.” Weckler’s entire football staff of offensive coordinator Tyler Bell, defensive coordinator Dan Smaha, Tyrone Williams, Teyun Curtis and Dan Sanders is new. There aren’t any holdovers from last season’s staff under former coach Todd Hallaron, who was the interim coach for one year after Marty Sanders resigned in May 2012.
Smaha and Bell came with Weckler from Belvidere, as did freshman coach Bob White. Smaha coached with Weckler the past four seasons at Belvidere. “I believe in what coach Weckler stands for, what he implemented as far as when we were at Belvidere,” Smaha said. “If I didn’t believe in what he was doing, I wouldn’t have came down here to help him when he asked me to come down. He has the kids’ best interests in mind, the communities’ best interest in mind. He’s going to do good things here.”

REDS 2, CUBS 1
Cubs let another lead slip away The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – The Cubs got another strong outing from a starting pitcher. They wasted it again. Travis Wood gave up two runs and four hits in seven innings, but Cincinnati’s Mike Leake outpitched him and the Reds beat the Cubs, 2-1, Wednesday. “It’s frustrating because it’s the same game,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. “Starting pitchers pitchAP photo ing into the seventh inning, The Reds’ Devin Mesoraco (39) is doubled up at second as the Cubs’ quality starts.

Wood held the Reds hitless until Cesar Izturis’s two-out infield single in the fifth and tossed his 12th quality start in
13 games. The Cubs have dropped eight of 10 and they haven’t had more than six hits in any of their last six games. In their last five losses, they’ve scored seven runs total. “We try not to think about [the lack of run support],” Wood said. “We’re just out there trying to do all we can, help any way we can and out there supporting all our teammates.” Anthony Rizzo is hitting .156 over his last 10 games, during which he has five hits.

Blue Jays-Sox postponed because of storms CHICAGO – The game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the White Sox scheduled for Wednesday was postponed because of storms. The game was called early in the afternoon as severe weather was approaching. No makeup date was announced. The Blue Jays aren’t scheduled to play again at U.S. Cellular Field this season. This was the fourth home postponement for the Sox this season, the most since they had five home games called off in 2008. Toronto is scheduled to play at Texas on tonight. The Sox are off today and visit Houston on Friday night.
White Sox sign first-round pick Anderson CHICAGO – The White Sox said they have agreed to a deal with first-round draft pick Tim Anderson with a $2.164-million bonus. The team announced the agreement on Wednesday. A shortstop, Anderson was taken with the 17th pick in the draft. He was a first-team, NJCAA Division II All-American in 2013 at East Central Community College in Decatur, Miss., after leading the nation with a .495 average and 62 runs while finishing second with 41 stolen bases. He signed a letter of intent with Alabama-Birmingham before being drafted.

NBA FINALS GAME 4: MIAMI AT SAN ANTONIO, 8 P.M. TODAY, ABC
James: ‘Something has to give’ By BRIAN MAHONEY The Associated Press SAN ANTONIO – Game 4 of the NBA Finals will tell more about the Miami Heat than a 66win regular season ever could. Any questions about LeBron James and the Heat were supposed to have been answered by now. He was too good to be taken out of games, his teammates too talented to go through long stretches where they weren’t contributing. But they didn’t resemble the league’s reigning powerhouse in Game 3, when the San Antonio Spurs handed them the third-worst beating in finals history in a 113-77 romp. They looked like the confused club from two years ago, when the finals last came to Texas. Another loss tonight and they’re on the verge of something much bigger than another finals failure. Lose this series, and the
“If us three don’t lead the charge, we’re not going to be NBA champions. Our teammates count on us, so we have to step up.” Dwyane Wade Miami Heat guard whole Big Three era might be a failure. “Something has to give [tonight],” James said Wednesday. “They have a championship pedigree. They have four [titles]. We have two. So something has to give. We’ll see what happens. We’ve been able to bounce back throughout adverse times throughout the season throughout the years that we’ve been together, these three years. We’ll see.” “We’ll see” is the approach the Spurs are taking with Tony
Parker, who has a mild hamstring strain. The team is calling the All-Star point guard day to day after he was hurt during Game 3 and had an MRI exam Wednesday. “I want to wait until tomorrow before I make a decision whether he should play or not,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “And obviously a lot of it will have to do with Tony, and what happens to him during the day, and how I think his play will affect our team, whether good or bad.” The Spurs didn’t need much from him Tuesday, when Danny Green and Gary Neal combined for 13 of the Spurs’ NBA Finals-record 16 3-pointers and Kawhi Leonard had 14 points and 12 rebounds, essentially playing James even. James had his practice jersey hanging over his back like a cape Wednesday, and he knows the Heat need him to be Super on Thursday.
And he insists that what he’s going to be. “As dark as it was last night, can’t get no darker than that, especially for me,” he said. “So, I guarantee I’ll be better tomorrow for sure.” He should, given that his 7-for-21 effort with no free throws was about as bad as the four-time MVP can play. But he came to Miami so he didn’t have to do it all, where a partnership with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh meant his days of having to carry teams were supposed to be over. But with Wade battling right knee pain for a while and Bosh mired in a slump, there has rarely been the vaunted three-man attack that was expected when they joined up in July 2010. “If us three don’t lead the charge, we’re not going to be NBA champions,” Wade said. “Our teammates count on us, so we have to step up.”
Barbs to run triple option Reds wins 12th straight at Wrigley • BARBS Continued from page B1 One thing Weckler is doing when it comes to practice is holding individual and fundamental drills with the entire program together before splitting up the varsity, sophomore and freshman teams. He’s also running the same system throughout the entire program, and is working to get the DeKalb Bengals involved as well. Offensively, the Barbs will be running the triple option, which is what Weckler ran at Belvidere.
The triple option revolves around running the ball with multiple backs and providing deception to confuse defenses. “Kids knew what it is,” Weckler said. “Terminology, by the time they get to the high school it was just getting better, doing the little things.” One thing Curtis, who came over from Genoa-Kingston, noted was the offense’s quick tempo. “I will say the tempo of the offense is through the roof,” he said. “I’ve never seen it work so well. The kids are real excited for football season.”
• CUBS Continued from page B1 “Personally it’s frustrating, but the whole team is frustrating even more,” Rizzo said. “One person can struggle, hopefully other people pick us up. The whole team is struggling right now. That’s probably the most frustrating part. We’re all in this together, it’s a battle. You just got to keep going.” Leake (6-3) gave up a second-inning home run off the bat of Nate Schierholtz for his only run and only allowed three hits total in eight inning, while striking out six and
walking one. With the threat of bad weather looming, Leake helped lead the Reds to a record 12th straight victory at Wrigley Field and the loss drop the Cubs to a season low 13 games under .500 and 7-21 against division rivals. “I think it’s going to test everyone’s character,” Rizzo said. “Yeah, we are far out of it and obviously we aren’t playing very well right now. It’s going to test everyone’s character and it’s going to be a grind. We’re just going to have to have fun. If you look out there, it doesn’t look like anyone’s having fun right now. We’re just going to have to pick each other up.”

Colorado signs No. 3 draft pick Gray DENVER – The Colorado Rockies signed pitcher Jonathan Gray on Wednesday. Gray, selected third overall last week out of Oklahoma, arrived in Denver on Tuesday and the sides completed the contract a day later. He attended a news conference at the ballpark before Colorado played the Washington Nationals, shook hands with star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and in the middle of the third inning was introduced to the crowd on the video board, answering a rousing welcome with a smile and a wave. Gray said he was glad the deal was done so he could turn his attention to beginning his professional career. He is the highest 2013 draft pick to sign so far – the righthander was chosen after Stanford pitcher Mark Appel (Houston Astros) and San Diego third baseman Kris Bryant (Cubs). – Wire report

Cutting up the Open with a butter knife ARDMORE, Pa. – On a quiet day and on a relatively empty course for practice rounds, just about every player at Merion stops at the plaque in the 18th fairway that commemorates Ben Hogan hitting 1-iron into the 18th green in the 1950 U.S. Open. To see such a landmark in golf history, players are inspired to try to duplicate the shot. But this is no longer an option. Good luck finding a player who even carries a 1-iron. And the shot Hogan hit, which the USGA estimates to be 213 yards, is no longer a 1-iron. Graeme McDowell hit a 3-hybrid, conceding that Hogan would probably roll in his grave. There was a time when several players carried the club known as the “butter knife.” Finding memorable shots in the U.S. Open is not that easy. Here are five shots with the 1-iron that stand out: 5. JOHN DALY REACHES THE UNREACHABLE PAR 5 The legend of the 17th hole at Baltusrol was that no one could reach the 630-yard hole in two shots. Baltusrol had not seen the likes of John Daly in the 1993 U.S. Open. Fans and volunteers kept telling Daly they wanted to see him reach the green in two, though that could only happen if Daly hit his tee shot in the fairway. He finally managed in the second round on Friday. Daly blasted his tee shot, leaving him about 287 yards up the hill. He smashed his 1-iron – Daly didn’t carry a 3-wood back then – and the ball landed in the thick rough between a pair of bunkers, bounced a couple of times and rolled across the green. He shot 68 that day, though he would not be a factor the rest of the week. No matter. Daly desperately wanted to prove he could reach the 17th in two, and he said he told his caddie, “We may not play good, but at least we’ll make history.” 4. JACK NICKLAUS AT BALTUSROL Jack Nicklaus was leading Arnold Palmer going to the par-5 18th at Baltusrol in the 1967 U.S. Open, but more was at stake than beating Palmer again in the U.S. Open. Nicklaus needed a birdie on the last hole to break Hogan’s U.S. Open scoring record of 276 in 1948. It didn’t start out very well. Nicklaus pulled his tee shot into thick rough and had to pitch back out to the fairway. That left him 238 yards away from a thin lie in the fairway, up the hill to the green. He chose a 1-iron, and the shot was so true that Nicklaus took a couple of steps toward the hole when he hit it. The crowd told him the rest. The ball settled just over 20 feet from the hole, and Nicklaus made the putt for a closing 65 and a four-shot win over Palmer. 3. NICKLAUS AT PEBBLE BEACH If not for the famous photo of Hogan, what Nicklaus did in 1972 at Pebble Beach might be the most memorable 1-iron struck in U.S. Open history. Because it struck the flag. Nicklaus was never out of the lead after every round that week at Pebble, and in the tough wind off the Monterey Peninsula, his 72 in the third round gave him the outright lead. He was comfortably ahead going to the par-3 17th, though it was no picnic. The wind was ripping hard into his face. Nicklaus pulled out his 1-iron and would have been content to be in the front bunker. Here’s where the shot is even more amazing – Nicklaus had to make an adjustment in the middle of his swing because he felt the club slight off line. It struck the flag, and Nicklaus went on to a 74 for a three-shot win and his third U.S. Open title. 2. HOGAN AT MERION Sixteen months after the car accident that nearly killed him, Hogan was on the cusp of an amazing comeback. He was in control of the final round in the 1950 U.S. Open at Merion. He was two shots ahead when he three-putted the 15th for a bogey, and then found a bunker off the tee on the par-3 17th and failed to save par. Suddenly, he was tied for the lead with Lloyd Mangrum and George Fazio, who already had finished the final round. He would need a par on the tough 18th just to join them. The final day was 36 holes, and Hogan hit such a good drive in the morning third round that he needed only a 6-iron. But with his legs battered and swollen on his 36th hole of the day, his tee shot couldn’t catch the slope of the hill, leaving him about 213 yards. He was between a 4-wood and a 1-iron, and he went with the 1-iron. Hogan reached the green, about 40 feet away, and two-putted for par to get into the playoff. He won the next day. 1. IRON BYRON WINS HIS ONLY OPEN The record shows Byron Nelson winning his only U.S. Open in 1939 at Philadelphia Country Club after two 18-hole playoffs. Denny Shute was eliminated after the first 18, and Nelson shot 70 in the second playoff to beat Craig Wood by three shots. There are no photos of the most significant shot. The occasion wasn’t as heroic as when Hogan won across town at Merion 11 years later. But there is no denying the quality of Lord Byron’s shot. He took the lead in the second playoff with a birdie on the third hole. On the par-4 fourth, Nelson had 215 yards and hit a 1-iron that went into the cup for an eagle. Just like that, he had a big lead and was on his way to victory. – The Associated Press

Mystery of Merion starting to unfold By DOUG FERGUSON The Associated Press
Matt Kuchar hits down the first fairway during practice Tuesday for the U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pa.
Kuchar could smile his way to Open title By TIM DAHLBERG The Associated Press ARDMORE, Pa. – He was the smiling kid with his dad on the bag in his first U.S. Open, eager to be himself and not the guy he was following. Matt Kuchar never expected to be the next Tiger Woods, mostly because even then he knew it wasn’t possible. Winning the U.S. Amateur a year after Woods recorded his third straight amateur title got him into the 1998 Open, but it would be a long time before the two were in the same conversation again. “I was never thinking because I won the amateur the year after Tiger that I was the next Tiger Woods,” Kuchar said. “That was never something that I thought about or thought I was going to follow the same path as Tiger. I knew I had a different path that was for me.” That path was rocky at times, but Kuchar never lost faith in his talent. He rebuilt his swing, found his way back on the PGA Tour after a brief hiccup, and started contending in tournaments.
Now he’s in another conversation this week at Merion Golf Club. He’s joined a select few as perhaps the best player who hasn’t won a major championship. “I don’t know that I’m quite in that talk yet,” Kuchar said Wednesday. “I know that a lot of people have been yelling out that they have got me in their pools and they’re picking me this week. But we hear a lot of that talk every week.” Perhaps Kuchar should start listening more. Coming off a win two weeks ago at Memorial – where his young son got a high five from host Jack Nicklaus when Kuchar won – he’s high on a lot of lists as a possible winner at this Open. That he’s not shying away from the talk says something about how confident he is about his game. “I feel like I’m playing some good golf,” Kuchar said. “I’m looking to continue to play good golf. Certainly a major championship, a U.S. Open, is one I’m geared up for. I’m looking forward to competing and trying to put my name on this trophy.”
U.S. OPEN NOTES
Your van is ready: Long ride to 1st tee at U.S. Open By JOSEPH WHITE The Associated Press ARDMORE, Pa. – It’s quite the ride from the driving range to the first tee at Merion, and that’s going to take some getting used to this week at the U.S. Open. “That’s an interesting challenge,” said Matt Kuchar, a two-time winner on the PGA Tour this year. “I think that there’s a number of people who like to go straight off the driving range, hitting that last tee ball and trying to envision them being on the first tee and replicating that same tee shot.” A 12-passenger van will shuttle the players, and Kuchar said the elapsed time from final practice swing to first competitive swing could be some 20 to 30 minutes. “I think the guys that have to rely less on timing in their golf swing will certainly fare better on the opening tee ball and first couple of holes,” Kuchar said. “The guys that are more relying on timing and have to come straight from the range quickly to the first tee to kind of be fresh and ready to go may struggle a little more.” USGA executive director Mike Davis said the rules allow for a player to avoid a
penalty or disqualification if a tee time is missed because of a breakdown in the shuttle service, but he’s not expecting any problems. “Ultimately,” Davis said, “it is the player’s responsibility to get to his first tee ground on time.”
Remembering happy days: After beating Jack Nicklaus in a playoff to win the U.S. Open at Merion in 1971, Lee Trevino famously quipped: “I love Merion, and I don’t even know her last name.” If a joke works, it’s worth repeating. “I’m still trying to figure out what her last name is,” Trevino said this week as he returned to the historic course. “I know I fell in love with her when I was here.” Trevino and David Graham, winners of the last two U.S. Opens at Merion, were among the featured guests at a champions dinner Tuesday night. They found the place to be the same, yet different. “Our [news] conference, when Nicklaus and I were here, was on a bench in the locker room,” Trevino said while meeting with reporters in the expansive media tent, one of the modern-day necessities shoehorned into the relatively intimate confines of the suburban Philadelphia golf club.
ARDMORE, Pa. – The affection was genuine. Even better was beating Jack Nicklaus in a playoff. So when Lee Trevino got his hands on that U.S. Open trophy in 1971, the guy who never lacked for one-liners gushed, “I love Merion, and I don’t even know her last name.” For this generation of stars, Merion is more like a blind date. No other course with four U.S. Opens had to wait such a long time – 32 years – for another chance to test the world’s best players. Even with Tiger Woods back to No. 1 and winning at a ridiculous rate, so much of the talk at this major championship has been about Merion. For years, it was considered too small to handle such a big tournament and the big hitters with their modern equipment. And with soft greens from more than 6 inches of rain in the last week, the question is whether the course will yield the kind of scores rarely seen at the toughest test in golf. The mystery of Merion will start to unfold today. “It’s been how long, 32 years? And with all the technology since then?” Steve Stricker said as he headed to the first tee Wednesday for one last practice round. “Someone asked me the other day about someone shooting a 62. And what I wanted to say was, ‘You’re crazy.’ But you just don’t know. We don’t know what’s going to happen. And in a way, that’s kind of cool.” Not so cool was the weather expected for the opening
Tiger Woods hits out of a bunker on the 17th hole during Wednesday’s practice for the U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pa. round. Merion already took a beating last Friday when more than 3 inches of rain sent water over the edges of some bunkers and left small streams on fairways and greens. More rain on Monday caused the course to be closed three times. The forecast called for increasing clouds, gusts and showers this morning, with stronger storms likely to arrive around noon. “Sure, we want it firm and fast,” USGA vice president Thomas O’Toole said Wednesday. “We happen to play a sport that’s played outdoors. We received significant rain over the last week, and some tell us that we’ll have even more significant rain tomorrow. So it’s not a perfect world. It’s not a perfect game. But we take what we’re dealt with.” Whether a golf course is big or small, soft greens typically are a recipe for low
scores. Then again, Merion is not a typical golf course. It measures 6,996 yards on the scorecard – the shortest of any major championship in nine years – and has a stretch of seven holes in the middle that are short even by yesterday’s standards. Compare those holes with the scorecard from when Ben Hogan won the 1950 U.S. Open at Merion, and four of those holes were actually longer by a few yards in Hogan’s day. Players typically reach for the wedge to chip out of the rough around the greens at the U.S. Open. At Merion, they could be hitting wedge into the green for their second shot on at least six holes. That’s what has caused all the clamor about low scores. And with the rain, it’s reminiscent of how Congressional was vulnerable two years ago, when Rory McIlroy shattered U.S. Open scoring records at 16-under 268.
NHL STANLEY CUP FINAL

Blackhawks replace speed with muscle By TOM MUSICK firstname.lastname@example.org CHICAGO – Brandon Bollig could have pouted or complained during his five-week stint as a healthy scratch between playoff games. Instead, the Blackhawks’ forward smiled and waited for his next opportunity. “You just have to stay ready when you’re in my position,” Bollig said. “You never know what’s going to happen. You never know when you’re going to get that call.” That call came Wednesday. The Hawks inserted Bollig into the lineup for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, marking the enforcer’s first action since May 5 against the Minnesota Wild. Bollig replaced speedy but struggling forward Viktor Stalberg, who entered the series with no goals, three assists and a minus-1 rating in 15 playoff appearances. Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said Bollig (6-foot-2, 223 pounds) provided a physical fourth-line presence against the Bruins. In 25 regular-season games, Bollig registered zero points and 51 penalty minutes while protecting his teammates. “We want him to play hard, smart, within the whistles,” Quenneville said. “Bring that element.” It’s official: Stephen Walkom will not play a role in the Stanley Cup Final. Walkom, who waved off Niklas Hjalmarsson’s potential game-winning goal late in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals, was not one of four referees selected to work the final round between the Hawks and Bruins. The referees who worked Game 1 were Chris Rooney
(second Stanley Cup Final) and Brad Watson (seventh). Two other referees also were selected to work games during the series: Dan O’Halloran (sixth) and Wes McCauley (first). The linesmen assigned to the Stanley Cup Final were Shane Heyer (third), Brian Murphy (sixth), Pierre Racicot (seventh) and Jay Sharrers (seventh). Thin ice: The Hawks developed an intense rivalry with the Phoenix Coyotes during a six-game playoff series last season. That might have marked the Hawks’ last postseason trip to Phoenix. “It’s possible the team won’t play there next year,” Bill Daly, the NHL’s deputy commissioner, said before Game 1. “Look, we’re in the short strokes in Phoenix now. The ownership group we’ve negotiated a deal with has been negotiating with the city of Glendale. I think everybody knows what’s on the table and I think the puck pretty much is in the city of Glendale’s end right now.” Honest athlete: After the Boston Bruins drafted young forward David Krejci in 2004, the Czech Republic native was asked about joining an Original Six franchise. Krejci had no idea what that meant. “I never knew it started with six teams,” Krejci said this week before the start of the Stanley Cup Final. “I grew up watching it when it was, I don’t know, 28 [teams]. … “But I’ve been on the Bruins for a long time now. I’ve met some awesome hockey players like Bobby Orr, Ray Bourque, Cam Neely, John Bucyk. I’ve learned over the past few years about the history of the Bruins. I’m happy I can be part of the Bruins.”
Boston Bruins left wing Daniel Paille (20) and Blackhawks defenseman Johnny Oduya (27) collide during the first period Thursday of Game 1 in the Stanley Cup Final at the United Center.
Power play still haunting Hawks in playoffs • HAWKS Continued from page B1 Lucic struck again just 51 seconds into the second period with another wrist shot after Hjalmarsson gambled along the boards and fell, allowing Boston to break in. The Hawks started to come on strong after that. The Hawks got on the board just over two minutes later when rookie Brandon Saad scored his first goal of the playoffs. He carried the puck down the ice but was bumped off it in the left corner of the Boston zone. Marian Hossa recovered it and fed Saad in the slot, making it 2-1 and bringing the sell-
out crowd to their feet. The Hawks’ momentum came screeching to a halt on a power play – make that a two-man advantage – midway through the second. A big issue during the regular season, it continues to haunt the Blackhawks in the playoffs. They came in 7 for 51 on the power play – 12th among the 16 playoff teams – and that number took another hit when they couldn’t convert a five-on three advantage, Horton got called for interference at 7:37 and the Bruins were whistled for having too many men on the ice at 8:20, but the Hawks came away empty. Before Saad’s tally, Rask
had not given up a goal in 149:36 and he saved 36 shots through the first three periods for the Bruins, who are seeking their second title in three years. Crawford made 22 stops in regulation for the Hawks, back in the finals for the first time since their championship run three years ago, didn’t get much going in this one. Not since the Montreal Canadiens knocked off the New York Rangers in five games in 1979 had Original Six teams played for the championship. But both these teams have been here, done that, with the Hawks winning it all in 2010 and Boston taking the cham-
pionship the following season. For the Hawks, it was a long climb back. The buzzer had barely stopped ringing after Patrick Kane scored the winning goal against Philadelphia to end a 49-year championship drought when the bulldozer hit the Hawks. Salary cap issues forced the Hawks to part with a long line of supporting players, and the result was back-toback first-round playoff losses. But things sure came together this year. From a 24game points streak to start to capturing the Presidents’ Trophy at the end, no team dominated like the Hawks during the regular season.

Review: Director doesn’t do Superman justice By JEFFREY WESTHOFF
‘Man of Steel’
Shaw Media Oh Superman, what did you do to deserve Zack Snyder? When Snyder was handed “Man of Steel,” the latest attempt to launch Superman back into the blockbuster stratosphere, comic book fans feared the ADD-afflicted director of “300” and “Watchmen” was a bad match for the most stolid of superheroes. They were right. Snyder creates a jittery Superman movie with harsh, grainy photography and eardrum-cracking sound effects. The movie starts and ends as a thunderous alien-invasion picture in the Roland Emmerich/ Michael Bay vein. Superman is often dwarfed by special effects, a supporting player in his own movie. The shame of it is that Henry Cavill, the latest actor to squeeze into the blue and red costume, is winningly disarming the few times he is allowed to behave like the Superman we all know. Snyder and Warner Bros. can’t be blamed entirely for wanting to shake things up. The previous attempt to revive the character, 2006’s “Superman Returns” (with Brandon Routh wearing the cape) was doomed to blandness because director Bryan Singer envisioned it as a continuation of the Christopher Reeve era – 20 years after the fact. “Man of Steel” instead follows the trendy reboot strategy, retelling the origin story from 1978’s “Superman” in a grittier fashion and also loosely remaking 1981’s “Superman II.” The chief villain here, as in that first sequel, is General Zod (Michael Shannon), the insurrectionist from Superman’s home planet of Krypton. The early scenes of “Man of Steel” follow the early scenes of the 1978 movie in content. General Zod and his followers are imprisoned in the Phantom Zone for their crimes against Krypton. Meanwhile, Superman’s father, Jor-El (Russell Crowe), is certain Krypton will soon explode and makes plans to rocket his only begotten son, Kal-El, to safety on the faraway planet Earth. Jor-El selects Earth because atmospheric and solar differences will make Kal-El invulnerable and gifted with incredible strength and the ability to fly (or float or whatever,
Rating: PG-13 for intense sequences of science-fiction violence, action and destruction, and for some language Running time: 2 hours, 23 minutes Starring: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe
This film publicity image released by Warner Bros. Pictures shows Henry Cavill as Superman in “Man of Steel.” I’ve never been clear on that). “He’ll be a god to them!” Jor-El declares with chilling certainty. Those standard elements of the Superman origin story are presented faithfully enough, but this version’s embellishments are bewildering. Apparently Snyder’s takeaway from the “Star Wars” prequels was that audiences can’t get enough of alien politics. Jor-El blames Krypton’s downfall on its policy of eugenics. No child has been born naturally for centuries, not until Jor-El and wife Lara (Eyelet Zurer) defied the government with baby Kal-El. If the other Kryptonians haven’t been procreating, they sure have been sublimating, because all their spaceships look like reproductive organs. Just as baby Superman is about to crash land in Kansas, the story unexpectedly jumps ahead to reveal Cavill as a fully grown, heavily bearded Clark Kent on a spiritual walkabout, roaming the country and anonymously saving people. Flashbacks reveal his formative years in Smallville with adoptive parents Jonathan and Martha Kent
(Kevin Costner and Diane Lane). Meanwhile, feisty Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane (Amy Adams) gets wind of the mysterious wandering savior and digs into the story, altering the nature of the Lois Lane-Superman relationship before they even meet. This is probably the film’s greatest departure from the character’s legend, but I would argue it is a change for the better. Lois emerges as smarter, more independent. Eventually Zod and his small army (not just the two co-conspirators from “Superman II”) arrive on Earth and threaten to wreak planetary havoc unless the son of Jor-El reveals himself. Even more debates about Kryptonian politics follow until Zod wreaks planetary havoc anyway, with boilerplate depictions of giant spaceships hovering over cities and causing skyscrapers to crumble. It’s been, what? almost a month since “Star Trek Into Darkness” wrought similar devastation. Here Snyder betrays his deep misunderstanding about what distinguishes Superman from other
superheroes and other big-budget summer extravaganzas. Superman movies shouldn’t be about mass destruction. They should be about a hero who prevents mass destruction. Other attempts to toughen up Superman’s mythos are more perverse. A young Clark Kent is terrified when he hits puberty and suddenly is bombarded by sounds and can see his friends’ internal organs as Snyder channels Dario Argento to depict super hearing and X-ray vision. Later Superman uses his heat vision to cauterize Lois’ stomach wound in a pointless moment that looks disturbingly like sexual assault. Screenwriter David S. Goyer (who worked on the story with Christopher Nolan, fellow architect of the “Dark Knight” trilogy) attempts to balance the darker side of the story by taking the usual symbolism of Superman as Christ figure and preaching it with the restraint of a 1980s televangelist. At least three times Superman holds his arms out in a crucifixion
pose. He mentions he has been on Earth for 33 years. The kicker arrives when Clark visits a church to ponder whether he should sacrifice himself to save mankind while over his shoulder a stained-glass Jesus agonizes over the same question in the Garden of Gethsemane. Goyer’s script comes across as a biblical text as well, filled with pompous declarations about the nature of Superman’s powers and his duty to lesser mortals. Characters don’t converse in “Man of Steel,” they state. The actors saddled with the most conspicuous speeches are Crowe, whose hologram continues to pop up like a genie, and Costner, who delivers about a dozen stiff lectures on morality. The 1978 movie sold the same message in one elegantly written scene where Glenn Ford tells young Clark he was put on Earth for a greater purpose than scoring touchdowns. Finding the traditional bright colors of comic book movies gauche, Snyder and cinematographer Amir Mokri desaturate everything to an ugly miasma of browns and greys. Avoid seeing this in 3-D because Snyder uses a handheld camera throughout, apparently hoping to induce motion sickness. Although nearly every production decision behind “Man of Steel” is too harsh, grim or heavy-handed for a hero as hopeful as Superman, the character himself survives untouched by his poisonous surroundings. With his square jaw and broad chest, Cavill projects the fundamental decency at the core of Superman without a trace of embarrassment. Cavill is quietly heroic in a noisy monster of a movie. He deserves a chance to play Superman with a better script and another director. Sadly, Goyer and Snyder already are booked for the sequel. Lex Luthor must be running the studio.

Folk Music Fest at Gurler House on Saturday The sounds of bluegrass, jazz, and Celtic music will fill the air around the historical Gurler House from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Local youths will perform a shortened version of William Shakespeare’s classic comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” this Friday and Saturday in the Black Box Theatre at DeKalb High School. The production is directed by Northern Illinois University theater student Christie Coran, who studied theater last fall in Russia at the Moscow Art Theatre School. “Studying in Russia was a turning point for me,” Coran said in a news release. “The theater there is very physical – there’s a vitality, a vividness, a strength to it. Every single moment is exciting and alive. And that was what I wanted these young actors to experience.” Coran adapted the script herself, shortening Shakespeare’s original text into an hour-long show. “I wanted our ‘Midsummer’ to be accessible to young audiences. I have such magical memories of seeing this play when I was little, and I wanted to offer that magic to the children of our community,” she said in the release. Coran is joined in co-directing the production with her brother, Calvin, who also is an
undergraduate theater student at NIU. The role of Oberon will be played by Alex Riley; and Titania, queen of the fairies, will by played by Izzy Hepker. Lysander will be played by David Boyer, and Matthew Johnson will play Demetrius. Olivia Holloway-Racine will play the role of Hermia, and Eliza Coran will play Helena. Gracia Watson will play the role of Philostrate, and Peter Quince will be played by Lauren Brazeau. The role of Theseus, Ruler of Athens, will be played by Clarke Doig, and Egeus the Mother of Hermia will be played by Brittany Moudy. The role of Nick Bottom will by played by Brooks Coran, and Thisby will be played by Marc Thompson. Sandra Brown will play Tom Snout, and the role of Changeling Child will be played by Maria HollowayRacine and Clara Coran. Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday in the new DeKalb High School Black Box Theatre. Tickets cost $5 for children and $8 for adults, and are available at the door one hour prior to curtain. For more information, visitwww.annextheatrecompany.org.

Learn the signs of elder abuse to prevent it Dear Abby: Thank you for all you do to keep our seniors safe. Saturday, June 15, is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. On that day, communities in the USA and all over the world will sponsor events to highlight the growing tragic issue of elder abuse. Your readers – young and old – should know that the U.S. Administration on Aging estimates that as many as 5 million seniors are abused or neglected each year in the United States. Elder abuse can be physical, emotional, financial and sexual. It also includes people who are neglected. Elders who are abused are twice as likely to be hospitalized, four times as likely to go into nursing homes and three times as likely to die. Elder abuse can be prevented if everyone would
DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips learn the warning signs and report it to Adult Protective Services or the police if they suspect it is happening. – Mary Twomey, MSW, University of California-Irvine Dear Readers: I was dismayed to learn that 90 percent of elder abuse happens at the hands of a family member or a caregiver. The descriptions of the kinds of treatment these elderly adults experience are frightening, and frankly, not suitable for readers of all ages. That is why I am urging readers to get more information on this important subject by visiting www. ncea.aoa.gov. We can all stop this
scourge if we know what to look for and are willing to speak up when we see the warning signs. There, but for the grace of God, go you and I. Dear Abby: I was married to a wonderful man, “Ted,” who was 20 years my senior. In social situations his adult children would introduce me as “Dad’s wife” or “Ted’s wife.” Sadly, my husband passed away, and his children no longer know how to refer to me socially. I was recently asked by Ted’s children how I wished to be introduced, but I’m not sure. I don’t think “stepmother” is appropriate because I’m only four to seven years older than they are. Do you have any ideas as to what might be appropriate? – “Marilyn” in New Jersey Dear “Marilyn”: You could be introduced as “Dad’s widow,”
“my late father’s wife” or simply by your name. Dear Abby: Some friends are in the process of adopting two children internationally. Early on, they had a garage sale with the proceeds going toward the adoption. I was excited for them and wanted to help. However, this was soon followed by more requests – for yard sale donations, two more garage sales, the “opportunity” to buy expensive coffee online, a fundraising dinner, and then a solicitation for me and others to provide a “virtual shower” of plane ticket money. Each time I am notified about another fundraiser, I feel less and less charitable. I have never been asked for money for the same thing in so many different ways in such a short time. While I’m thrilled with their desire
to adopt, I am increasingly disgusted and put off by their continued pleas for money. Am I wrong to be so upset about this? – A Little Ticked Off Dear Ticked Off: It appears your “friends” are taking advantage of your generosity. It will continue for only as long as you permit it. Because the requests for help are continuous, are you absolutely sure this couple is really in the middle of the adoption process and not using the money for some other purpose? Before donating anything else, you should find out.

‘Prediabetes’ is wake-up call for life changes Dear Dr. K: I recently had some blood tests done, and my doctor told me I have “prediabetes.” What does this mean? Do I have diabetes or not? Dear Reader: Diabetes doesn’t usually appear all of a sudden. Many people have a long, slow, invisible lead-in to it called prediabetes. During this period, blood sugar levels are higher than normal. However, they’re not high enough to cause symptoms or to be classified as diabetes. It’s still possible at this stage to prevent the slide into full-blown diabetes. Think of prediabetes as a wake-up call. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease marked by high levels of sugar in the
ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff blood. During digestion, carbohydrates are broken down into simple sugars, primarily glucose. Glucose is an important source of energy for the body’s cells. But to provide energy to the cells, glucose needs to leave the blood and get inside the cells. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, signals the cells to extract glucose from the blood. When levels of glucose in the blood rise (for example, after a meal), the pancreas produces
more insulin. That drives more glucose into the cells. Type 2 diabetes occurs when your body’s cells do not react efficiently to insulin. As a result, not as much glucose is driven into the cells, and more stays in the blood. As glucose starts to build up in the blood, the pancreas makes extra insulin to maintain a normal blood sugar. The cycle escalates. Finally, the pancreas cannot keep up with the demand for more and more insulin. As a result, blood glucose levels remain elevated. Diabetes increases the chances of having a heart attack, stroke or other form of cardiovascular disease. It can lead to blindness, kidney
disease and loss of feeling in the legs. Fortunately, you have the opportunity to make changes that could keep you from ever going down that road. I recommend this three-part strategy to help stave off diabetes: • Modest weight loss. • Increased physical activity, such as walking 30 minutes a day. Even if it doesn’t help you to lose weight, the regular physical activity will reduce your risk of getting diabetes. • Choosing a healthy, wellbalanced diet that emphasizes fruit, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein. Not everyone with pre-
diabetes goes on to develop diabetes, but many do. You’ve gotten the warning. Now it’s up to you to respond. If you want to avoid getting diabetes, you can do more to protect yourself than your doctor can do for you. And the solutions are all “natural” – no medicines or medical procedures are necessary. These lifestyle changes are healthy for everyone, but especially for people like you who are at high risk for getting diabetes. No, it’s not easy to make the changes, but it’s a lot easier than living with the complications of diabetes.

Young couple has dispute over child’s name Dr. Wallace: This might sound trivial to you, but it is very important to me. I’m 20, married and expecting our first child, a son, in four months. My husband’s father’s name is Hector, and my husband wants to name our son Hector to honor his father who, by the way, is not worthy of any kind of honor. My father’s name is Harry, but I don’t like that name either. I’ve suggested that Hector could be our son’s middle name, but my husband won’t buy that. Names are important. I honestly think my
’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace husband’s father suffered from low self-esteem because of his name. Be honest, would you have named your son Hector? Please tell my husband that Hector is out as a name. – Sue, Louisville, Ky. Sue: I was named Robert after my father. My son was named Robert after his grandfather and me. My wife gave her blessing to this. Since none of the mentioned
8ASTROGRAPH By BERNICE BEDE OSOL Newspaper Enterprise Association
TODAY – Be patient when it comes to your objectives and aims in the coming days. Your progress might be rather slow in the beginning, but with each passing month, your momentum will gradually increase. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – You should be able to call the shots with excellent results. Just be sure to pick the right people for your team. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Be your own person, striving to do your own thing. If you can work independently of others, you’ll be able to make significant progress. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Try to spend some time with very special friends. Certain events are occurring that will cement such bonds even further. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – If you’re motivated by unselfish reasons, you can make some major achievements. When doing things for others, you’ll find yourself advancing your own causes as well. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – What you say is likely to carry far more weight than usual, especially for a friend who is in dire need of encouragement. Devote as much time as possible to being this person’s booster. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – You have two especially strong assets that can be utilized for profitable ends. The first one is your commercial instinct for what the public needs; the second is your knowledge of the market. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Don’t attempt to do everything single-handed today when you have plenty of others waiting to help. Besides, success is more likely when the effort to attain is collective. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Having plenty of time to play will not necessarily satisfy your restless nature. To assuage this uneasiness, you need to feel that you’ve accomplished something worthy. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – All work and no play could quickly put you in a rut. Keep your nose to the grindstone early on, so that you’ll have some time to do something relaxing later. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – This is an excellent day to take care of deadlines. Fortunately, you’re a strong finisher, and you should be able to clean up some critical matters. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – If you’re feeling restless, why not get in touch with some old friends whom you haven’t seen or talked to in quite a while? It’ll be worth it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Stay on top of arrangements that could add a sizeable amount to your resources. Plans that you are in the midst of developing could become quite meaningful.
Roberts are troublemakers, all is well in the Wallace family. If my father’s name was Hector, chances are that I would have been named Hector, Jr., and my son would have been named Hector III. I won’t convince your husband not to name his son Hector, but I would encourage him to take your suggestion and have Hector be his middle name. It’s not wise to upset a wife who is “expecting.” Dr. Wallace: Please settle this “friendly” family dispute. My older brother drinks about a half-gallon
of milk every day. He only drinks whole milk and will not drink 2 percent or skim milk. I keep telling him that he would be better off not drinking whole milk, but he says that his football coach told the team that whole milk is nature’s best food, and since my brother is on the football team, he listens to his coach. I know that his coach is mistaken. Please “enlighten” him and his players. – Gina, Houston, Texas Gina: It’s true that milk is the “perfect” food, chock-full of proteins, carbohydrates,
BRIDGE Phillip Alder
vitamins and minerals, including calcium, but whole milk has a high fat content. So to set the record straight, skim is actually nature’s “perfect” food. It contains all the “good stuff” without any of the not-so-good stuff, namely fat. Shame on the coach for not knowing this. Or is it possible your brother is just telling you that the coach recommends whole milk? In any case, make sure the coach also reads my answer.

Do not jump to beginnings Anna Quindlen, an author and journalist, said, “Life is not so much about beginnings and endings as it is about going on and on and on. It is about muddling through the middle.” Bridge deals, though, are about all of the tricks, the beginning, middle and end. One must be careful about jumping to conclusions at the beginning. In this deal, how should South play in three no-trump after West leads the spade eight? When North balances with two clubs, he may bid a couple of points lighter than he would have needed in second position. So when South advances, he should add a couple of points for his actions – hence two no-trump, not three notrump. But North, because he has a full-weight overcall, raises. Declarer starts with seven top tricks: one spade, three hearts, one diamond and two clubs. Obviously, the clubs will provide several extra winners. Also, because the spade queen can be established immediately, it looks natural for declarer to play low from the board at trick one. However, that could be fatal. East can win with his spade king and shift to diamonds. Then, when he gets in with his club trick, the defenders run the diamonds. (Yes, if South first cashes his major-suit winners, East will have to unblock diamonds, keeping a low card, but West’s carding should have made it clear to do that.) Instead, declarer should take the first trick with dummy’s spade ace and play a low club, covering East’s card as cheaply as possible to allow for a 4-0 split. Here, he wins with his five and must take at least 10 tricks.
