But emphatically voted ‘no’ on Metra severance votes. That was my first hell no.” Schaffer’s problems with the package Jack Schaffer e c h o w h a t numerous lawmakers, including state Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, have argued since the board accepted Clifford’s resignation June 21. The Regional Transportation Authority is reviewing the deal, its chairman said Tuesday. Taxpayers shouldn’t have to cover the buyout beyond Clifford’s contracted salary of about $252,000, Franks said in a joint statement with state Rep. David Harris, R-Arlington Heights.

By EMILY K. COLEMAN CHICAGO – The outgoing Metra chief executive officer was too honest for Illinois, one Metra director said. Jack Schaffer cast the sole “no” vote against a severance package for Metra CEO Alex Clifford that could total $750,000, with $442,000 in severance plus legal fees, moving expenses and health insurance costs. “I didn’t vote no; I voted hell no,” said Schaffer, who was appointed to the Metra Board of Directors in 2006 to represent McHenry County. “I thought about it on the train on my way home. My 20 years on the state Senate, seven years on the Metra board, and my many years on different boards and committees, I have probably cast 40,000

Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews raises the Stanley Cup over his head Friday as he, the team and fans celebrate the Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup victory at a rally in Grant Park in Chicago.

Hawks fans celebrate second title in four years By JEFF ARNOLD CHICAGO – Thirty minutes before the Stanley Cup passed down Washington Street, hoisted over the head of Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews, Josh Johnson and Dave Lucas steadied a pair of 6-foot ladders in the middle of LaSalle Street and waited. The two union pipe fitters had been on the clock for only a couple of hours Friday morning, but had planned all morning to take one of their “union-mandated” breaks just as the Hawks’ victory parade made its way from the United Center to Grant Park. Johnson and Lucas sat elevated behind a frenzied crowd that stood 10 rows deep behind police barricades. Those in the front rows had been there for hours, willing to wait to have the best view of the day’s festivities. As children sat perched on their father’s shoulders and girlfriends gained a better vantage point on those of their boyfriends, the two Admiral Mechanical Services workers relished their prime parade-viewing seats. “This is insane – absolutely insane. It’s like Christmas,” Johnson said. “Our bosses have no idea what we’re doing.

Lawsuits rise after gay marriage ruling ed its freeze on same-sex marriages in California, saying the state is required to issue licenses to gay couples starting immediately. But the rulings, while hailed by gay-rights activists, did not declare a nationwide right for gays to marry. Instead, they set the stage for state-by-state battles over one of America’s most contentious social issues. Already, some of those battles are heating up. In Pennsylvania, the only Northeast state that doesn’t legally recognize same-sex couples, gay state Rep. Brian Sims, a Philadelphia Democrat, says

By DAVID CRARY The Associated Press Across the country, this week’s landmark Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriage have energized activists and politicians on both sides of the debate. Efforts to impose bans – and to repeal them – have taken on new intensity, as have lawsuits by gays demanding the right to marry. The high court, in two 5-4 decisions Wednesday, opened the way for California to become the 13th state to legalize gay marriage, and it directed the federal government to recognize legally married same-sex couples.

Home away from home needed for players In a little less than a month, Jim and Susan Zacher again will open their doors to strangers. For the duration of the McHenry County Youth Sports Association’s International Championships, youth baseball players from Japan will call the Zachers’ Crystal Lake residence home. This will be the ninth year the Zachers have hosted Japanese baseball players as part of the home-stay program that houses players from international baseball teams who come to McHenry County. “Eight years ago, we had no idea what a lifelong impact this would have on us,” Susan Zacher said. “Every year is more and more memorable.” Teams from Japan, Puerto Rico, Aruba, Sri Lanka, Brazil and Lithua-


VIEWS Jason Schaumburg nia will join a number of teams from the U.S. – including many local teams – to play in 11-and-under, 13-and-under and 15-and-under baseball tournaments. Opening night is July 27 at Lippold Park in Crystal Lake. The tournaments conclude during Championship Weekend on Aug. 2 to 4. Games will be played in Crystal Lake, Lake in the Hills, McHenry and Woodstock. MCYSA’s home-stay program provides a place to stay for the international teams coming to McHenry County to play ball. Tournament

Executive Director Jack Sebesta said about 14 kids still need homes to stay in. The tournament is looking for about seven more families willing to house the kids. The primary need is to find housing for the 15-year-old players from Lithuania, but the tournament also is looking for homes for 13-year-olds from Sri Lanka. “People who have [housed kids] say it’s a great experience,” Sebesta said. Susan Zacher agrees. She said the experience housing Japanese players has been incredible. The Zachers have become friends with the coaches and interpreter who return each season. They stay in touch with some of the players, sometimes on a weekly basis. “It provides lasting bonds,” she

said. Susan said her family members – which includes three children ranging in ages from 13 to 19 years old – have always been big baseball fans, and they will continue participating in the program until her kids are grown up.

With Mandela, end-of-life care magnified By LINDSEY TANNER The Associated Press CHICAGO – The emotional pain and practical demands facing Nelson Mandela’s family are universal: confronting the final days of an elderly loved one. There are no rules for how or when the end may arrive. Some choose to let go with little medical interference; others seek aggressive treatment. Mandela’s status as a respected global figure only complicates the situation, doctors and end-of-life experts say. Mandela “is not only revered, he is loved and profoundly admired by people all over the world and the sense of letting go must be difficult for everyone involved,” said William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University.

Forfeiture motion names ex-Rep. Jackson’s homes By MICHAEL TARM The Associated Press CHICAGO – Government prosecutors Friday filed a forfeiture motion naming the homes of former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife, Sandi, in a move legal observers said could result in them losing one or both homes. The motion filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., comes just days before Jackson and his wife are scheduled to be sentenced on charges related to Jackson’s misuse of $750,000 in campaign funds. Later Friday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington issued a statement insisting it was not seeking “to take over” or seize the Jacksons’ two homes – one in the nation’s capital and the other in Chicago. “The motion filed by the government today seeks to forfeit the defendant’s interest in the two properties in the event that they are sold,” it said. “This is a standard fil-

“The government will be in the driver’s seat about when the houses are sold. And they are not going to let the Jacksons live in the homes for 20 years.” Joe Lopez, Chicago defense attorney on the forfeiture motion ing in cases in which a defendant has a significant money judgment and equity in property that could be used to satisfy the money judgment.” A message seeking comment from Jackson’s attorney, Reid Weingarten, was not returned. But legal observers who read through Friday’s motion said that, for all practical purposes, the Jacksons’ homes are now in jeopardy. “The government statement is soft-pedaling a bitter reality,” said Joe Lopez, a defense attorney in Chicago who practices in both state and federal court. “This filing is a big deal – to the Jacksons.” The Washington home, a Victorian-style townhouse, is

valued at more than $2 million. The Chicago home is on the southeast side of the city hugging Lake Michigan If a judge approves the forfeiture motion, the government could act quickly to force the sale of the homes, said Lopez, who has no connection to the Jackson cases. “The government will be in the driver’s seat about when the houses are sold,” he said. “And they are not going to let the Jacksons live in the homes for 20 years.” Earlier this year, Jackson, the son of civil rights leader Jesse Jackson Sr., pleaded guilty to charges he spent $750,000 in campaign funds on personal items, from a gold-plated Rolex watch to mounted elk heads.

CHICAGO – A Chicago woman and her 5-year-old son have been shot to death inside a home on the city’s South Side. Police spokesman John Mirabelli says a 31-year-old woman and a 5-year-old boy were found dead with gunshot wounds around 2:40 a.m. Friday at a home in the Back of the Yards neighborhood. Relatives say the two were mother and son. Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office were not immediately identifying the victims by name. No one was in custody Friday morning.

Attorney General Lisa Madigan says her office filed the lawsuit Thursday against Rafael Martinez, who operates Chicago-based Abiel Construction Co.

His alleged victims included a senior citizen suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and a May-

Prosecutors said he so desperately wanted his ex-girlfriend and her family dead because of a child custody dispute that he recruited a “patsy” to carry out the 2010 attack.

Libraries to help uninsured with health law By CARLA K. JOHNSON The Associated Press CHICAGO – The nation’s librarians will be recruited to help people get signed up for insurance under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Up to 17,000 U.S. libraries will be part of the effort to get information and crucial computer time to the millions of uninsured Americans who need to get coverage under the law. The undertaking will be announced Sunday in Chicago at the annual conference of the American Library Association, according to federal officials who released the information early to The Associated Press. The initiative starts Oct. 1, when people without health coverage will start shopping for insurance online on new websites where they can get tax credits to help pay the cost. Low-income people will

8BRIEFS Senators want answers on NSA surveillance WASHINGTON – More than two dozen U.S. senators are calling on the nation’s top intelligence official to make information public about the scope and duration of the National Security Agency’s surveillance program. In a letter sent Friday to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, the bipartisan group of lawmakers also want him provide examples of how the bulk collection of phone records provided unique intelligence.

Father of NSA leaker says son would return to U.S. WASHINGTON – The father of NSA leaker Edward Snowden acknowledged Friday that his son broke the law but doesn’t think he committed treason. “If folks want to classify him as a traitor, in fact, he has betrayed his government. But I don’t believe that he’s betrayed the people of the United States,” Lonnie Snowden told NBC’s “Today” show. Snowden said his attorney has informed Attorney General Eric Holder that he believes his son would voluntarily return to the United States if the Justice Department promises not to hold him before trial and not subject him to a gag order, NBC reported.

Officer Tim Smith testified that Zimmerman’s backside was covered in grass and wetter than his front side.

Timothy Ngo shelves books Friday at the Barbara Bush Branch Library in Spring, Texas. The nation’s librarians will be recruited to help people get signed up for insurance under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. be enrolled in an expanded version of Medicaid in states that adopt it. About 7 million people are expected to sign up for cover-

age in the new marketplaces next year, but the heavy emphasis on the Web-based portals puts anyone without access to a computer at a dis-

advantage. Libraries equipped with public computers and Internet access already serve as a bridge across the digital

divide, so it made sense to get them involved, said Julie Bataille, spokeswoman for the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. “Libraries are a tremendous resource for people in their communities,” Bataille said. “They’re already a destination many individuals go to when they’re seeking out information and understanding on a variety of issues.” Libraries also have public spaces where meetings can be held. And they already provide health information to 28 million people a year via public access computers, according to the Institute of Museum and Library Services, a federal grant-making agency, which will coordinate the new effort with CMS. The two federal agencies also worked together during the rollout of the Medicare prescription drug benefit, experience that should help with this effort, Bataille said.

Libraries will be particularly important in conservative states that are not making much effort to promote the health law’s opportunities. In Texas, the Dallas library system’s home page has linked to – the revamped federal website that is the hub for health law information. Embedding the widget on their sites is another way some libraries may choose to get involved, said Susan Hildreth, director of the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Some libraries may decide to set aside some public computers for people seeking health insurance or extend time limits on computers, Hildreth said. Some may work with community health centers on educational events. Those will be local decisions with each library deciding how to participate.

Immigration legislation Final government faces obstacles in House birth control rule for faith groups

By DAVID ESPO and ERICA WERNER The Associated Press

The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – The focus of hotly contested immigration legislation swung Friday from the Senate to the House, where conservative Republicans hold power, there is no bipartisan template to serve as a starting point and the two parties stress widely different priorities. “It’s a very long and winding road to immigration reform,” said Rep. Tom Cole, an Oklahoma Republican who said it could be late this year or perhaps early in 2014 before the outcome is known. His own constituents are “very skeptical, mostly opposed,” he said. Supporters of the Senate’s approach sought to rally support for its promise of citizenship for those who have lived in the United States unlawfully, a key provision alongside steps to reduce future illegal immigration. “The Republican Party still doesn’t understand the depth...of this movement and just how much the American people want comprehensive immigration reform,” Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., said on Friday. “We need to make sure they come to this understanding.” But Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz., said in an interview

Adan Ramirez stands under a portrait of Rufino Contreras Thursday during a meeting to discuss the Senate’s passing of the immigration reform bill at the United Farm Workers office in Salinas, Calif. that any bill that results in citizenship was a nonstarter. He called the approach “patently unfair” to those trying to “do it the legal way.” Within hours after the Democratic-controlled Sen-

ate approved its bill Thursday on a 68-32 vote, President Barack Obama telephoned with congratulations for several members of the bipartisan Gang of Eight who negotiated an early draft of the bill that passed.

Obama’s ties to Mandela loom over S. Africa visit By JULIE PACE The Associated Press JOHANNESBURG – Inspired by Nelson Mandela’s struggles in South Africa, a young Barack Obama joined campus protests in the U.S. against the racist rule that kept Mandela locked away in prison for nearly three decades. Now a historic, barrier-breaking figure himself, President Obama arrived in South Africa Friday to find a country drastically transformed by Mandela’s influence – and grappling with the beloved 94-year-old’s mortality. It was unclear whether Mandela’s deteriorating health would allow Obama to make a hospital visit. The former South African leader is battling a recurring lung infection and is said to be in critical condition at a hospital in the South African capital of Pretoria. Speaking to reporters on Air Force One as he made his way to Johannesburg, Obama said he would gauge the situ-

“I think he’s a hero for the world. And if and when he passes from this place, one thing I think we’ll all know is that his legacy is one that will linger on throughout the ages.” President Barack Obama talking about Nelson Mandela

ation after he arrived. “I don’t need a photo-op,” he said. “And the last thing I want to do is to be in any way obtrusive at a time when the family is concerned about Nelson Mandela’s condition.” Obama’s visit to South Africa is seen as something of a tribute to the man who helped inspire his own political activism. The president will pay homage to Mandela at Robben Island, the prison where he spent 18 of his 27 years in prison. And with South Africa’s ruling party,

the African National Congress, facing questions about its effectiveness, Obama will urge the government and the South African people to live up to the democratic example set by their first black president. “He’s a personal hero, but I don’t think I’m unique in that regard,” Obama said during a news conference Thursday in Senegal, the first stop on his weeklong Africa trip. “I think he’s a hero for the world. And if and when he passes from this place, one thing I think we’ll all know is that his legacy is one that will linger on throughout the ages.” Obama and Mandela have met just once, a hastily arranged meeting in a Washington hotel room in 2005 when Obama was a U.S. senator. A photo of the meeting hangs in Obama’s personal office at the White House, showing a smiling Mandela sitting on a chair, his legs outstretched, as the young senator reaches down to shake his hand. A copy of the photo also hangs in Mandela’s office in Johannesburg.

WASHINGTON – The Obama administration issued its final compromise Friday for religiously affiliated charities, hospitals and other nonprofits that object to covering birth control in their employee health plans. The Health and Human Services Department said the final plan simplifies how insurers provide the coverage separately from faith-based groups and gives religious nonprofits more time to comply. However, the changes are unlikely to resolve objections from faith groups that the requirement violates their religious freedom. More than 60 lawsuits have been filed challenging the rule. The cases are expected to reach the Supreme Court. The birth-control rule was first introduced in February 2012, as part of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, drawing praise from women’s groups and condemnation from religious leaders. The original plan exempted churches and other houses of worship,

but required faith-affiliated charities, universities and other nonprofits to provide the coverage for their employees. The regulation became an election-year issue as Roman Catholic bishops, evangelicals and some religious leaders who have generally been supportive of Obama’s policies lobbied fiercely for a broader exemption. The Obama administration offered a series of accommodations, leading to the final rules released Friday. Under the compromise, administration officials said they simplified the definition of religious organizations that are fully exempt from the requirement. The change means a church that also ran a soup kitchen would not have to comply. Other religious nonprofits must notify their insurance company that they object to birth control coverage. The insurer or administrator of the plan will then notify affected employees separately that coverage will be provided at no cost. The insurers would be reimbursed by a credit against fees owed the government.

Phoenix, Las Vegas bake in scorching heat The ASSOCIATED PRESS

134 degrees

PHOENIX – A blazing heat wave expected to send the mercury soaring to nearly 120 degrees in Phoenix and Las Vegas settled over the West on Friday, threatening to ground airliners and raising fears that people and pets will get burned on the scalding pavement. The heat was so punishing that rangers took up positions at trailheads at Lake Mead in Nevada to persuade people not to hike. Zookeepers in Phoenix hosed down the elephants and fed tigers frozen fish snacks. And tourists at California’s Death Valley took photos of the harsh landscape and a thermometer that read 121. The mercury there was expected to reach nearly 130 on Friday – just short of the 134-degree reading from a

highest temperature on Earth from a century ago century ago that stands as the highest temperature ever recorded on Earth. “You have to take a picture of something like this. Otherwise no one will believe you,” said Laura McAlpine, visiting Death Valley from Scotland. The heat is not expected to break until Monday or Tuesday. The scorching weather presented problems for airlines because high temperatures can make it more difficult for planes to take off. Hot air reduces lift and hurts engine performance. Planes taking off in the heat may need longer runways or may shed weight by carrying less fuel.

e Vatican monsignor arrested c n i e Stand Up r e in plot to steal $26 million E x p Paddleboarding! By NICOLE WINFIELD The Associated Press

VATICAN CITY – The plot involved an armed police escort, a wealthy shipping family and a plan to secretly transport $26 million from a Swiss bank account into Italy aboard a private jet. At the heart of the story of greed: a silver-haired Vatican monsignor. The latest corruption scandal to hit the Holy See unraveled in public Friday as Monsignor Nunzio Scarano, a Vatican accountant, was arrested in the customs-dodging Swiss bank case. He is also under investigation in a separate case of alleged money laundering involving his Vatican bank account. The developments came two days after Pope Francis created a commission of in-

quiry into the Vatican bank to get to the bottom of the problems that have plagued it for decades and contributed to its reputation as an unregulated, offshore tax haven. Francis has made it clear that he has no tolerance for corruption or for Vatican officials who use their jobs for personal ambition or gain. He has said he wants a “poor” church that ministers to those most in need. He has also noted, tonguein-cheek, that “St. Peter didn’t have a bank account.” With Francis’ reform-minded hand now running the show, the Vatican said it was prepared to fully cooperate with Italian investigators, who described a remarkably detailed scheme allegedly spearheaded by Scarano to benefit some very wealthy friends. Prosecutor Nello Rossi identified them

as the d’Amicos, one of Italy’s most important shipping families from Scarano’s hometown of Salerno in southern Italy. Rossi declined to say whether any of the d’Amicos were under investigation. Three people were arrested Friday: Scarano, a onetime banker who was recently suspended from his job in the Vatican’s main finance office, Italian financier Giovanni Carenzio and Giovanni Zito, who until recently was a member of the Italian military police’s agency for security and information. According to wiretapped conversations, the three allegedly plotted to smuggle in some 20 million euros in cash that Carenzio held in a Swiss bank account without declaring it to authorities at the airport.

We’re just so glad we can bring this to the great city of Chicago. In 2010, you guys [had] waited 49 years to do this. This year, we waited three. What do you say we get back and do it again next year? – Patrick Sharp, Blackhawks forward

Goalie Ray Emery dances as he is introduced during a rally to celebrate the team’s Stanley Cup victory. The Blackhawks celebrated the team’s second championship in four years.

celebration, which came four days after the Hawks clinched the Cup in a 4-2 series win over the Boston Bruins. Some fans carried Stanley Cup replicas – some of them purchased off the Internet, others handmade and fashioned crudely out of rolls of aluminum foil. For Savo Cucuz, who made the drive from Merrillville, Ind., simply clutching the miniature Stanley Cup he paid $150 for seven years ago made him a popular target for fans wanting to get photos taken with hockey’s most cherished prize. “This is amazing. I’ve never been around this many people in my life,” Cucuz said. “But people are always com-

ing up asking for pictures. I had this at the White Sox game with me the other night and everyone wanted a photo. Kids, people offering to buy me beers for a picture.” Back on the corner of Washington and LaSalle, Johnson and Lucas were routinely asked to take photos from their ladders, giving fans trapped behind big crowds a better chance of capturing the celebration as it happened. “We’re going to start charging $1 a picture,” said Lucas, the brainchild behind the ladder scheme. “That way, at least we can buy lunch.” By 11:30 a.m., when the team’s rally began in Grant Park, fans roared as Hawks players were introduced, culminating with Toews, who clutched the Stanley Cup with two hands over his head.

Toews, one of eight Hawks who were part of the 2010 celebration, said he didn’t think it was possible for fans to match the level of enthusiasm they exhibited three years ago. “You guys did it somehow,” Toews said. “This shows how unbelievable this city is.” As fireworks blasted and the Hawks anthem, “Chelsea Dagger,” filled Grant Park, young fans danced, celebrating an achievement players said was hard to believe they did again so quickly after 2010. “We’re just so glad we can bring this to the great city of Chicago,” Hawks winger Patrick Sharp said. “In 2010, you guys [had] waited 49 years to do this. This year, we waited three. What do you say we get back and do it again next year?”

Schaffer on Clifford: ‘We were in chaos. He put the place on an even keel’ • METRA Continued from page A1 “I only care about the taxpayers being abused, and Metra has allowed the taxpayers to be abused numerous times,” Franks said. “I don’t think the taxpayers should be subsidizing their incompetence.”

Activists attempt to repeal other state bans • MARRIAGE Continued from page A1 he will introduce a bill to allow same-sex marriages. The bill may flounder in the GOPled Legislature, but the issue is likely to be volatile in next year’s gubernatorial race, pitting GOP Gov. Tom Corbett, an opponent of gay marriage, against any of three Democrats who favor it. In Arizona, gay-rights supporters have begun circulating petitions aimed at repealing the state’s 2008 ban on same-sex marriage by way of a ballot measure next year. With California’s ban quashed, Arizona is now among 29 states with constitutional amendments that limit marriage to one-man, one-woman unions. Gay-rights activists and Democratic politicians in several other states also hope to repeal the bans in their states – in Oregon, Ohio and Arkansas with possible ballot measures next year, and in Nevada and Michigan with referendums in 2016. Ohio activist Ian James of FreedomOhio said his group’s resolve to collect signatures “has been doubled” as a result of the Supreme Court decisions. And Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber, a Democrat who favors repealing his state’s ban, said the court action “underscores the urgency of extending the freedom to marry to all our citizens.” “Oregon has not yet lived up to the ideal of equal rights for all,” Kitzhaber said. In Indiana and West Virginia, some Republican politicians want to move in the other direction, joining the ranks of states with constitutional bans. Both states have laws that bar gays from marrying, but constitutional amendments are viewed as more durable measures that resist being overturned by litigation. The leaders of Indiana’s Republican-controlled Legislature had deferred action on an amendment during this year’s session, opting to wait for the Supreme Court rulings. Now, with the backing of GOP Gov. Mike Pence, they say the Legislature will consider the ban in the session starting in January, possibly putting the question to voters later next year.

RULING AFTERMATH Plaintiffs in Calif. gay marriage case wed SAN FRANCISCO – The lead plaintiffs in the U.S. Supreme Court case that overturned California’s same-sex marriage ban tied the knot at San Francisco City Hall on Friday, about an hour after a federal appeals court freed gay couples to obtain marriage licenses for the first time in 4 ∏ years. State’s Attorney General Kamala Harris presided at the wedding of Kris Perry and Sandy Stier of Berkeley as hundreds of supporters looked on and cheered. The couple sued to overturn the state’s voter-approved gay marriage ban along with Jeff Katami and Paul Zarrillo of Burbank, who planned to marry Friday evening at Los Angeles City Hall.

– Wire report

Schaffer agreed, adding that Clifford was willing to serve out his contract through its February end date. He also raised concerns about the secrecy surrounding the agreement. “The board chairman wanted him gone, and he wanted him gone now with no regard for the cost or the implica-

tion,” Schaffer said. “I find that suspicious.” Metra Chairman Brad O’Halloran said last week that Clifford was departing because of a “difference in opinion” on the direction of the rail network. O’Halloran said the size of the “generous” payout was partly because Clifford had to uproot his family from

California to take the job. Clifford, a former executive at the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority, joined Metra in 2011. He replaced longtime Executive Director Phil Pagano, who was accused of defrauding Metra out of about $475,000. Pagano committed suicide in May 2010 by stepping into the path of a

Metra train. Schaffer doesn’t have a bad thing to say about Clifford’s tenure at Metra. “He came in at a god awful time,” he said. “We were in chaos. He put the place on an even keel.” Clifford created a “fair and equitable pay scale” and embraced new technology, mov-

ing the organization forward, Schaffer said, adding that major changes such as those were going to ruffle some feathers. But Clifford wouldn’t look the other way on political patronage jobs, and that is why he was ousted, Schaffer said. “Alex Clifford was too honest for Illinois,” he said. “And that saddens me.”

Buyout deal derails Metra The Northwest Herald Editorial Board offers this week’s thumbs up and thumbs down: Thumbs down: To the Metra Board of Directors for approving last week a potential $750,000 buyout deal for former Metra CEO Alex Clifford amid a cloak of secrecy. Clifford’s hire was meant to clean up the agency plagued by the scandal with the dramatic departure of longtime Executive Director Phil Pagano, who was accused of defrauding the agency of $475,000 before committing suicide in May 2010 by stepping in front of a train. Jack Schaffer, McHenry County’s representative on the Metra Board, voted against the agreement for Clifford. Meanwhile Metra Chairman Brad O’Halloran’s only explanation for the Clifford payout was a difference of opinion. So far, not a great start in transparency or fiduciary responsibility for this supposedly transformed agency. Thumbs up: To the Chicago Blackhawks for inviting World War ll veteran George Marek, 90, of Fox Lake, to be one of three service veterans to join the team’s anthem singer, Jim Cornelison, on the ice for Cornelison’s stirring rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” before Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on June 22. Marek, a lifelong Blackhawks fan, said it “was the thrill of my life” to be on the ice. The group also received a standing ovation during an announcement recognizing the three veterans and their image appeared on the scoreboard. It was just one more example of the class act the Blackhawks organization is when it comes to honoring local veterans and appreciating its fans. Marek’s daughter, Sue Mlynski, deserves kudos as well for helping make it happen in the first place. Thumbs down: To the state Legislature’s conference committee that is supposed to be dealing with pension reform. Despite being formed June 19, the 10-member panel didn’t hold its first meeting until Thursday. And at that meeting, they heard about five hours of testimony from unions, business leaders, the governor’s budget director and others who basically reiterated the same problems everyone is aware of. We all know the problem. This committee should be seeking solutions, not rehashing what they already know. Thumbs up: To McHenry County College and its efforts to make board of trustees meetings more accessible. Starting this month, MCC began streaming board meetings live online. Meeting videos also will be archived and watched after the fact. People who can’t attend a meeting now have the opportunity to watch it live or at their convenience.

8HOW CONGRESS VOTED A look at this week’s major votes in Congress and how those who represent McHenry County voted:

Immigration overhaul The purpose: A bill to provide for comprehensive immigration reform and for other purposes. The vote: Passed in the Senate on Thursday by 17 votes – 68 voted “yes” and 32 voted “no.” Local representation: U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin (D) and Mark Kirk (R) voted “yes.”

Penny Pritzker confirmation The purpose: To confirm Penny Pritzker, of Illinois, to be Secretary of Commerce. The vote: Confirmed in the Senate on Tuesday by 47 votes – 97 voted “yes,” one voted “no” and two didn’t vote. Local representation: U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin (D) and Mark Kirk (R) voted “yes.” Source: The New York Times’ Inside Congress website


Can’t ignore Afghanistan Afghanistan is littered with the bones of soldiers from foreign countries. During the past 12 years, the blood of American soldiers has mingled in Afghanistan’s soil with the 19th-century blood of British Redcoats and 20th-century blood from what was then the Soviet’s Union’s Red Army. Others will likely fight and die there in the future. That is the history of Afghanistan. Some would say that is its nature. It is hard to know whether peace talks with the Taliban will change anything. Unfortunately, President Barack Obama tipped his hand and set a deadline for the withdrawal of American troops. Hardened resistance fighters who have battled a better equipped, better trained foe for more than a decade now know that they can simply wait it out. They can buy time with negotiations and cease fires until the Americans, British and other allies leave the Afghans to fend for themselves. Is the Taliban genuinely interested in a political solution after so many years of war? Or are they simply buying time? We suspect the latter. It’s very hard to tell. The Tuscaloosa (Ala.) News

8IT’S YOUR WRITE IRS head-scratcher To the Editor: I have an IRS story to share while they’re still tied to the whipping post. This is a real head-scratcher. I received a letter from the IRS concerning a contractor I use. Not being an employee, I couldn’t understand why they were coming to me. The letter stated that I was responsible for a levy the IRS had placed on this individual. Conferring with my accountant, it was made clear that I would have to oblige the IRS if I was to continue using this gentleman’s services. He readily admits he screwed up while going through a divorce. I value his services, so I instructed my accountant to set up the garnish. Let me preface this by saying I’m his biggest account. From this point forward, he is to receive no more than $833 a month from me because he has zero

dependents. Everything in excess goes to the IRS. Here’s the kicker; this gentleman is responsible for paying taxes on all the money he’s made, not just received. My best estimate is 18 months to pay off back taxes. There is no way he’ll be able to pay current income taxes and break the cycle. With penalties and interest, the IRS has basically created an indentured servant. Steve Moore Cary

We’re dying to talk, even if it kills us all WASHINGTON – We soon may have to endure extreme boredom at 30,000 feet as the once-friendly skies open to electronic devices and smartphones. Will this mean that the Delta Shuttle is going to become like the Acela, where – unless you can find a seat in the quiet car – there’s no escaping loud, onesided conversations about who’s going to drop off the SUV for a brake job or the tedious tale of the sullen waiter at dinner the night before? By contrast, even Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York, the most frequent of fliers (and talkers), didn’t disturb the quiet-as-atomb last flight out of Washington to New York, when the only sounds are whispered conversations and the gentle rustle of newspapers. Until now, the loudmouths had been muzzled by pricing issues: The clunky Airfone in the back of the seat costs about $5 per minute. Even Type A’s don’t want to talk that badly. With the airlines encouraging our phone addiction, being ungettable will be as rare as clocks with hands and frozen custard. The joy of those pre-iPhone days of not reaching out and touching someone – or being touched – will be lost along with that warning to friends, family and employers: “I’ll be out of pocket for the next two hours.” So long to stolen time for mile-high hooky. For reading a bad novel. Doing the crossword. Napping. Fortunately, chirping mobile phones on flights won’t make flying more dangerous; you’ll only want to kill your fellow

VIEWS Margaret Carlson passengers metaphorically. The menace is far greater on the ground. Electronic devices in the car can and will kill us – literally. The Department of Transportation found that chatting drivers are four times as likely to be in a crash, and distraction from phone use while driving (hand-held or hands-free) slows a driver’s reaction as much as having a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent, or being legally drunk. Mothers Against Drunk Driving made inebriated driving socially unacceptable, but there is no similarly powerful movement to shame distracted drivers. Talking while driving is terrible and texting while driving is worse. Looking down at a small keyboard, thumbing away, to send a message or to read one while your foot is on the gas, is insane. Researchers at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found that sending, or just reading, a text takes a driver’s eyes off the road for an average of 4.6 seconds, or as long as it takes to drive the length of a football field at 55 mph. I swore off texting while driving after a close call with a post that jumped out at me. The car bore the scars. It could have been the driver. Yet I still find it hard not to answer calls, even though rooting around to find


the phone creates a whole other level of hazard. I’m what the experts call emboldened by my near-miss: I managed to avoid catastrophe once; I’m sure I can do it again. There are lots of us. It is hard to curb one of life’s burning passions – the desire to communicate with one another – even when we are hurtling down the road at warp speed. This spring, AT&T released a study showing that about half of all adults admitted they text at the wheel, as did 43 percent of teenagers. This, even though 98 percent of adults acknowledge it is wrong. More alarming, six of 10 people who said they weren’t texting while driving three years ago are now doing so. (It is to AT&T’s credit that it made public a study that works against its own financial interests.) Not that talking is much better. Hands-free devices were supposed to help, but they don’t. It turns out that it’s not holding the phone to your ear that makes you lose focus but the very act of having a conversation. Studies show that the odds drivers will stay in their own lanes are no higher because their hands are theoretically steering the car. So far, nothing has worked to halt the practice – not even expensive tickets. (New York City went on an enforcement binge in 2009: In one 24-hour crackdown, 7,432 tickets were written for texting or talking on a mobile phone while driving, compared with 580 on a typical day, yet New Yorkers haven’t changed their bad habits.) Nor have videos of lethal accidents proved

dissuasive. (There are plenty on YouTube.) The statistics alone should do the job. If today is like most days, nine people will die and more than 1,000 will be injured in crashes caused by distracted driving. Do you really still want to check whether you need to pick up a quart of milk on the way home? It should be easy to pass some Draconian laws and get the money to enforce them (41 states and the District of Columbia ban text messaging by drivers and 11 states ban drivers from using hand-held phones). It’s not as if there’s a lobby working against to protect the practice, as there were lobbies arguing in favor of tobacco (remember smoking on airplanes?) and cars that crumpled upon the slightest impact. The need for enforcement goes down once a law takes hold; then self-enforcement sets in. Who fails to wear a seat belt or buckle a child in the back seat? An army of vigilantes rises up should someone light up a cigarette in a restaurant. I’m going to run an experiment to wean myself off talking in the car as part of Mothers Against Distracted Driving, MADD II. I’m going to put the phone in the back seat. And if I sense someone is calling me from a car, I’ll tell them to hang up. If I still feel the need to talk while traveling at high speed, I can always hop on a plane. • Margaret Carlson is a Bloomberg View columnist.

LITH MAN KILLED IN ONE-CAR CRASH A Lake in the Hills man died Friday morning in a onecar wreck near Woodstock, according to the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office. The 56-year-old man has been identified as George R. Jackson, McHenry County Coroner Anne Majewski said. No other details were available. Jackson was driving east on Route 14 in an unincorporated area of McHenry County around 4:30 a.m. when his vehicle veered off the roadway into a ditch, striking a culvert, Undersheriff Andrew Zinke said. The vehicle came to rest in a wooded area in the 16200 block of North Route 14. Jackson was unresponsive when paramedics arrived, and he was transported to Centegra Hospital-Woodstock, where he was pronounced dead, Majewski said. Drugs and alcohol are not suspected in the crash. Route 14 between Hughes and Dimmel roads was shut down for several hours. The investigation is ongoing.

McHenry open for business Finding retailers for former Walmart, Sears sites part of city’s to-do list By EMILY K. COLEMAN McHENRY – The phone is ringing more often, McHenry officials said. The city is looking to fill some of its empty storefronts, in particular the former Walmart and Sears sites, both along the city’s Route 31 corridor, Deputy City Administrator Doug Martin said. “Not to downgrade all the other

Those are obviously priorities, but

those are also the hardest to fill.” Part of Martin’s job is building relationships with retailer site finders and brokers and pitching specific sites in the city. Part of that is through fielding calls that come into the city – and those have been increasing over the past several years, he said – and by going to conferences. “We’re selling McHenry,” Martin said. “We’re selling our brand,

Board meeting airs live for first time

PORTIONS OF RIVER CLOSED TO PUBLIC The Illinois Department of Natural Resources Conservation Police have temporarily restricted public access to a portion of the Fox River in Kane and McHenry counties, according to a news release. The restriction comes because of swift currents, floating debris and submerged structures from several inches of rain that fell throughout the area earlier this week. That included more than 6 inches in Cary. The restricted area is between the Montgomery and Stratton-Bolger dams until further notice. A no-wake restriction also is in effect at the Upper River Stratton-Bolger Lock and Dam north of Pistakee Lake and the Chain O’ Lakes from Pistakee Lake north to the Wisconsin state line, according to the Fox Waterway Agency. The village of Lakewood and city of Crystal Lake have suspended wake hours on Crystal Lake because the waters have exceeded the 9-inch threshold established by ordinance, according to a news release. Official notices have been posted on all private beaches and public entrances to the lake.

Problem areas on the rise Recent flood unlike any some residents have seen By JEFF ENGELHARDT CRYSTAL LAKE – Katie Yoars has lived in the same house since she was a child. And while she may have longed for a pool growing up in the 1980s, she was surprised to see one when she looked out of her window Wednesday. Yoars was one of many residents to experience flooding the likes of which they had never seen before when more than 3.5 inches of rain poured into Crystal Lake in less than an hour. “My backyard looked more like a pond or a lake, and I have never seen that in all the time I’ve lived here,” she said. “I saw my potted plants floating around the yard.” The small duplex near the intersection of Maple Street and Crystal Lake Avenue is just one of the problem areas the city must address every time there is heavy rainfall. Victor Ramirez, director of public works for Crystal Lake, said there were a record number of road closures – with 40 streets either closed or detoured at the peak of flooding – and sewage backups with roughly 35 reports. Had it not been for a 2009 stormwater study, the damage could have been worse, Ramirez said. The city

Dumovich is still pumping water out after this week’s flooding. was able to install a culvert crossing at North Shore Drive last fall to address its top flooding priority. “There’s one success story in all this,” Ramirez said. “We do have other places we want to address, but some don’t have as much impact and are a priority in future consideration.” With the city able to dedicate only so much to flood prevention efforts, neighborhoods such as Ken Dumovich’s likely will stay near the bottom of the priority list. Dumovich, who lives on Edgebrook Drive off Golf Road, frequently expe-

riences flooding when water seeps through the floor of his basement via the heavily saturated ground. He said the problem started after the city installed a pipe in a nearby creek to limit water, but it has been ineffective. Because the flooding does not affect streets and is not deemed a life-safety issue, Dumovich said it is not a top priority. “I’ve replaced two sump pumps this year, and my neighbors are constantly running theirs,” he said. “Unfortunately, we’re just not a priority.”

CRYSTAL LAKE – McHenry County College took a step toward becoming more transparent as it debuted live, online streaming at its most recent board of trustees meeting. The broadcast, which can be seen at board, went off without a hitch and will be archived for residents to watch at their leisure. College spokeswoman Christina Haggerty said both live and archived streams can be viewed on the USTREAM app, which is available for free on all smartphones and tablets. “I know I’ve already received a number of valuable emails,” MCC board Chairman Ron Parrish said. “This is all part of our effort to be more communicative.” The new broadcasting technology is just one way the college is trying to reach the community. Trustees also were given email addresses so residents can contact individual members without needing to send questions or concerns to a general board email address. However, every email sent to an individual trustee still will be filtered through the college. When an email is sent, the college determines who it is addressed to and forwards the email to the trustee’s personal account. The middle man is necessary because of a board policy that states all emails directed to trustees must be opened at the college. Trustee Chris Jenner said he would like to see more transparency initiatives, such as making minutes of closed sessions a document open to Freedom of Information Act requests. After reviewing closed-session minutes, the new trustee said the board has done a great job of writing detailed accounts of the meeting, but that

Spring Grove woman making trip to Guinea ‘Unique opportunity’ for Peace Corps volunteer By KATIE FINLON SPRING GROVE – Hannah Koeppl of Spring Grove first learned about the Peace Corps in her high school history class while studying the John F. Kennedy administration. She was 17 years old at the time. After that, she was hooked and decided to apply for the corps after she finished college.

“One thing led to another, and I found myself there,” Koeppl said. Koeppl, a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago, Hannah is scheduled to leave Koeppl Monday for Guinea. Peace Corps Her primary assign- volunteer ment will be as a secondary education physics teacher. She also will work on public health initiatives to address concerns such as malaria and HIV/AIDS.

Koeppl’s majors from UIC are biological sciences and French Francophone studies, which is the study of any French-speaking culture, including countries such as Guinea that used to be French colonies. Although she always wanted to join the Peace Corps, Koeppl went into her studies intending to have a career in public health and conservation biology. Koeppl’s education, along with her volunteer experience in alternative spring breaks teaching health workshops in Chicago Public Schools and study abroad in Aix-en-Provence, France, showed that she would be best

Heavy rains cause beach closings NORTHWEST HERALD WOODSTOCK – Because of elevated bacteria levels from recent heavy rains, the McHenry County Department of Health reports several beaches are either closed or placed on advisory. Closed beaches include: • Wooded Shores, 3221 E. Lake Shore Drive, Wonder Lake; • Shore Hills Beach, 3450 E. Lake Shore Drive, Wonder Lake; • Deep Spring Woods 1, 3701 E. Lake Shore Drive, Wonder Lake; • Deep Spring Woods 2, 3925-3927 E. Lake Shore Drive, Wonder Lake;

Woman will be away for two years • GUINEA Continued from page B1 “What we really look for is people making a commitment to making a difference,” Mayle said. “That makes it easier to place them. You can learn new skills, but that commitment is what makes Peace Corps volunteers special.” Koeppl is one of 16 McHenry County residents serving in the Peace Corps. According to Mayle, 262 McHenry County residents have served since the corps’ creation in 1961. Currently, 352 Illinois residents are serving in the Peace Corps, according to a June 20 Peace Corps news release, and 8,157 Illinois residents have served since its creation in 1961. Mayle said the application process to join the Peace Corps takes nine to 12 months; for Koeppl, it took nine. Koeppl also had to research the Guinean culture and will spend three months with her host family to learn the country’s language dialects and cultural norms before beginning her two-year assignment. Koeppl said her parents have been supportive aside from some safety worries. She said she also loves educating her extended family when they ask about her destination. “Yeah, I’ll be away from home for two years, but this is such a rare and unique opportunity for me,” Koeppl said. “It’ll be sad and nostalgic, but since my family knows it’s something that I’ve been wanting to pursue for a really long time, they’ve been really supportive.” Koeppl is nervous about being away from home and potential communication problems, but she remains optimistic about the experience. “I’m really excited to immerse myself in the culture and gain a new perspective – to learn a new language, to eat new food, learning about the values of the culture and living close to the earth,” Koeppl said. “It sounds a little tree-hugger, but I live in the concrete jungle of Chicago.”

MCC project to begin Monday NORTHWEST HERALD CRYSTAL LAKE – Reconstruction of Parking Lots B and D at McHenry County College, 8900 Route 14, will begin Monday, and the lots will be closed through mid-August. Parking is open in other lots throughout the campus. The work also includes resurfacing of Ring Road, the circular drive around the perimeter of MCC’s Crystal Lake campus. Ring Road will remain open, but motorists should enter the campus at Entrance 3 (Lucas Road). The reconstruction of Parking Lots B and D will result in a safer traffic pattern, wider parking spaces and

relocated bus and child care drop-off locations, according to a news release from the college “During this improvement, a stormwater pond will also be developed just north of MCC’s softball field,” Christina Haggerty, chief communications officer at MCC, said in the release. The best parking lot to use for ScotStars Summer Youth Sports Camp is Parking Lot E for soccer camp. The best parking lot to use for the Kids and College summer program is Parking Lot C. A temporary bus drop-off location during construction will be Parking Lot A, side lot by the entrance to the second floor of Building A, adjacent to the Office of Human Re-

Centegra offers vascular screenings NORTHWEST HERALD CRYSTAL LAKE – Although preventive screening is available, millions of Americans at risk for stroke or death from vascular disorders remain unaware of their risk. The Centegra Wellness on the Move mobile health unit offers this potentially life-saving screening. The unit has technicians and equipment that help screen and diagnose health problems at many stages and promotes education while building awareness and responsibility for one’s own health. According to the Society for Vascular Surgery, stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.

Centegra’s vascular screening program provides immediate preliminary results on these tests: ultrasound images of the carotid artery to detect plaque buildup; ankle brachial index measurements to detect blockage risk and peripheral arterial disease; heart rhythm EKG readout to detect atrial fibrillation; risk level for abdominal aortic aneurysm; and body mass index, pulse and blood pressure numbers. All results are confidential. Follow-up reports completed by a Centegra Health System radiologist are mailed to the patient within a week so they can be shared with a physician. Screenings will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on the

following dates: • Tuesday at Woodstock Recreation Center, 820 Lake Ave.; • July 9 at Centegra Hospital-Woodstock, 3701 Doty Road; • July 16 at Centegra Physician Care-Spring Grove, 1906 Holian Drive; • July 18 at Centegra Hospital-McHenry, 4309 Medical Center Drive; • July 23 at Centegra Physician Care-Woodstock, 3707 Doty Road; • July 25 at Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Center-Huntley, 10450 Algonquin Road.

8LOCAL BRIEFS Woodstock man gets 10 years for sex assault WOODSTOCK – A Woodstock man who authorities said once tried to flee the country to avoid sexual assault charges was sentenced Friday to 10 years in prison. Margarito Fabian, 50, pleaded guilty Friday to one count of predatory criminal sexual assault, a Class X felony. He was charged in May 2012 with multiple sex offenses, the rest of which were dropped in exchange for his guilty plea. The deal was accepted by Judge Sharon Prather. Class X felonies carry a maximum sentence of up to 30 years in prison. The charges date to 2007 and 2008, and involve a female family member younger than 13 years old, authorities have said. Fabian was arrested in a Joplin, Mo., Motel 6 with a child who was not the victim. He was tracked through the use of his credit cards. Police at the time said they believed he was on his way to Mexico.

Official: City has chance to attract development • BUSINESS Continued from page B1 houses Goodwill and Hobby Lobby – and the former Wickes store – which is now Jo-Ann Fabrics and Ross Dress for Less. One of the first projects after the downtown tax increment financing district was formed in 2002 was a similar project, Martin said. A trucking warehouse was converted into the strip mall that now holds Verlo Mattress Factory Store and RadioShack. Despite the issues that can arise when a megastore moves out – an especially touchy subject when it comes to Walmart’s move a little more than a mile north to Johnsburg where it built a brand-new store – city officials aren’t too concerned about the trend continuing. There are a few spots in town where these stores could be built, City Administrator Derik Morefield said, but he doesn’t see that hap-

pening in the near future. “Plus, it’s hard – and again, not just McHenry, but in general – to pass up a potential new retailer that’s going to bring in $300,000 a year in sales tax,” he said. Even if city officials wanted to put up roadblocks, their options are limited, Morefield said. They can ask for more and make the process more difficult, but if the property is already zoned commercial, there isn’t much that can be done. There’s also limitations on what the city can do to bring in businesses. “Any retailer is going to go where their demand is,” Martin said. “That usually involves where the traffic is and the people are.” If McHenry doesn’t meet those numbers, no financial incentive is going to make the difference, Morefield said. Looking forward, Morefield said he thinks McHenry has the demographics to bring development.

David and Beverly Smith of Richmond will be celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary on July 6, 2013. Beverly Hildinger and David Smith were joined in Holy Matrimony at St Peters Church in Spring Grove on July 6, 1963. They have spent the majority of their married life in the Richmond/Spring Grove area with their daughters, Sheryl and Kimberly and their son Michael. A change in jobs resulted in spending 10 years in the Wisconsin Dells area before returning to Richmond. Bev was able to be a stay at home mother for the kids and has really enjoyed seeing them grow up. When all of the kids were off doing their own things, Bev went to work for Sedom in Woodstock as an aid, so she could spend additional time with special needs children. David is a graduate Electrical Engineer that has held various positions in the Electric Motor Industry and is currently General Manager for Tuson Corporation in Vernon Hills , IL. They enjoy spending time with their grandchildren and great grandchildren and following their experiences as they grow older. They also enjoy being able to escape to Wisconsin for some peace and quiet at times.

Union museum to host Heritage Fair NORTHWEST HERALD UNION – The McHenry County Historical Society will present its 28th annual Heritage Fair from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 14 on the museum grounds, 6422 Main St. As part of this year’s theme, “Hip for History,” visitors are encouraged to wear 1960s fashion. The society, founded in November 1963 by Dorothy McEachren, is celebrating its golden anniversary this year. That year also marks Woodstock’s All-American City effort. A two-year major exhibit, titled “Return to Woodstock – All-American City,” focuses on Woodstock’s nomination and presentation in front of the All-America City jury in Detroit. Highlights include a replica of a merchant window on the Woodstock Square decorated for the All-America City, a 1961 aerial photo of the Woodstock Square, and the first donation to the society – an 1885 drum major uniform from the Woodstock Spring City Band. A car show, sponsored by First Merit Bank of Union, will feature sports, classic and antique cars. It runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The free show features trophies for the top 20 cars, as well as best of show and the “People’s Choice.” A DJ will be spinning “oldies.” For information, call Tony at TJ’s Klassics at 847-515-8110.

NORTHWEST HERALD CRYSTAL LAKE – The Crystal Lake Police Department has announced its plans for Fourth of July traffic enforcement, focusing on both drunken and unbuckled drivers. The effort will focus on late-night hours, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., as statistics show a disproportionate number

of traffic deaths occur late at night and involve drunken drivers or unbuckled motorists. The Illinois State Police and hundreds of police and sheriff’s offices will join in the statewide enforcement effort that runs through July 7. It is part of the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” campaigns.

To avoid a potential crash or drunken driving arrest, the police department recommends designating a sober driver and not letting friends or family members drive drunk. Other important tips: • If you are drunk, call a taxi, use mass transit or call a sober friend or family member to get you home safely.

• Promptly report drunken drivers on the roadways to law enforcement by pulling over and dialing 911. • Make sure everyone in your vehicle wears their seat belt. The law enforcement crackdown is funded by federal traffic safety funds through Illinois Department of Transportation’s Division of Traffic Safety.

“After Earth” HH½ STARRING: Jaden Smith, Will Smith, Sophie Okonedo PLOT: A father and son (real-life father and son Will and Jaden Smith) are the only survivors when a spaceship crash lands on Earth one thousand years after humanity has abandoned the planet. With the father critically wounded, the son must make a perilous journey into an unfamiliar wilderness to save them. RATING: PG-13 for science-fiction action violence and some disturbing images TIME: 1 hour, 40 minutes VERDICT: Will Smith handpicked the disgraced M. Night Shyamalan to direct this science-fiction adventure, and Shyamalan delivers his best film since “The Village.” Granted, that’s awfully faint praise, but at least Shyamalan has turned things around. Despite the futuristic trappings, this is an old-fashioned wilderness survival story that carries the usual symbolism of a young protagonist’s symbolic journey into manhood.

“The Bling Ring” HHH STARRING: Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, Emma Watson PLOT: Inspired by actual events, a group of fame-obsessed teenagers use the Internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts in order to rob their homes. RATING: R for teen drug and alcohol use, and for language including some brief sexual references TIME: 1 hour, 30 minutes VERDICT: Everything’s relative. And so, given that a film currently at the box office is about Americans encouraged by their own government to indulge their homicidal urges one night a year – we’re talking about “The Purge” – it’s tempting to hail the clueless young burglars in “The Bling Ring,” by comparison, as veritable humanitarians. After all, they’re not out to kill or even hurt anyone. All they want is your designer shoes, your cute tops, your Rolex watches, jewelry, credit cards and cash. And unless you’re a fashionable young Hollywood celebrity, they’ll probably leave you alone anyway, because you’re not cool enough to rip off. Not that Sofia Coppola’s latest film, based on a true story about a band of affluent, celebrity-obsessed teen burglars in suburban Los Angeles, isn’t chilling. It is, and not only because it displays the soulless nature of our fame-obsessed youth culture. It’s also the fact that Coppola doesn’t judge these kids. It’s an intentional choice, and perhaps an artful one, but it makes the whole enterprise a little depressing. You think, couldn’t we have had just a BIT of condemnation here? Besides these kids’ stunning lack of awareness that they were actually, like, committing crimes, and might actually, like, get caught, and go to, like, jail (which they eventually did), what’s stunning about the story is how easy the crimes were to commit. The burglars used sites like TMZ to determine whether celebs were away from home. Addresses were readily available, and Google Earth showed the gates and doors. And many people, it seems, leave doors open – or as Hilton did, leave keys under the mat. – Joce-

“Fast & Furious 6” HH½ STARRING: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez PLOT: A federal agent (Johnson) recruits the hard-driving crew led by Diesel and Walker to take on a gang of high-tech hot-rodders stealing military equipment across Europe. The catch is that Diesel’s dead girlfriend (Rodriguez) is actually alive and part of the new gang. RATING: PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action and mayhem throughout, and for some sexuality and language TIME: 2 hours, 10 minutes VERDICT: The longer the strangely durable “Fast & Furious” series goes on, the harder it is to hate. Although the sprawling cast plays every scene with straight faces, it becomes increasingly clear the actors are in on the joke. Don’t miss the shocking tease during the credits that makes “Fast & Furious 7” a must-see. – Jeffrey

HHHH - Excellent HHH - Recommended HH - Not recommended H - Awful ding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off. RATING: R for pervasive language including sexual references, some violence and drug content, and brief graphic nudity TIME: 1 hour, 40 minutes VERDICT: “Daring” isn’t a word you would use very much to describe 2011’s “The Hangover Part II,” the disappointingly lazy, beat-for-beat rehash of the wild and wildly successful original “Hangover” from 2009. And yet, here we are with part three, which runs a different sort of risk by going to darker and more dangerous places. It dares to alienate the very audience that made “The Hangover” the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time. Director and co-writer Todd Phillips signals early and often that he’s much more interested than ever before in exploring matters of real consequence rather than simply mining them for brash laughs. – Christy Lemire,

The Associated Press

“The Heat” HHH STARRING: Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy, Marlon Wayans, Michael Rappaport PLOT: An uptight FBI special agent (Bullock) must partner with an out of control Boston PD detective (McCarthy) to capture a mysterious drug kingpin. RATING: R for pervasive language, strong crude content and some violence TIME: 1 hour, 57 minutes VERDICT: A game Bullock joins with McCarthy and her “Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig in a raunchy female take on the buddy cop formula. As long as their opposing personalities clash, Bullock and McCarthy are hilarious. The formula dictates they eventually become friends, and the flint between the stars eases just as the cop story becomes predictable. The third act disappoints, but the bickering that precedes it may make you laugh until you cannot breathe. – Jeffrey Westhoff, North-

west Herald

“The Internship” H½ STARRING: Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, Rose Byrne PLOT: After losing their jobs as watch salesman, a pair of hapless 40-somethings (Vaughn and Wilson) scam their way into Google’s intern program. They compete with college students 20 years their junior for full-time jobs at the Internet giant. RATING: PG-13 for sexuality, some crude humor, partying and language TIME: 1 hour, 59 minutes VERDICT: Both a particularly lazy comedy for producer and co-writer Vaughn and a two-hour recruitment ad for Google. Director Shawn Levy and Vaughn attempt to recreate the slobs vs. snobs appeal of such ’80s comedies as “Revenge of the Nerds” and “Meatballs” but fail because the script lacks any attitude besides piety for the glories of Google. You shouldn’t have to pay to see this movie; Google should pay you. – Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest


“Man of Steel” HH STARRING: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe PLOT: While still coming to grips with his powers and reeling from the revelation that he is an alien from the planet Krypton, novice superhero Clark Kent (Cavill) must face a war criminal (Shannon) from his home world, a villain with all of Superman’s powers but none of his morality. RATING: PG-13 for intense sequences of science-fiction violence,

action and destruction, and for some language TIME: 2 hours, 23 minutes VERDICT: After 2006’s bland “Superman Returns” failed to reignite the most venerable of superhero franchises, Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder (“300”) try to shake up the hero’s mythos with a reboot that takes bold liberties with his origin story. Most of Snyder’s decisions are completely wrong for the stolid character. He creates a jittery, harsh and loud would-be blockbuster, a boilerplate alien invasion tale that happens to include Superman. The few times Cavill is permitted to act like Superman, he is endearingly, quietly heroic. Cavill doesn’t deserve David S. Goyer’s overwrought script and Snyder’s wrongheaded direction. – Jeffrey

Westhoff, Northwest Herald

“Monsters University” HHH STARRING: Voices of Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Helen Mirren PLOT: Years before working at Monsters Inc., Mike (Crystal) and Sulley (Goodman) are rival freshmen at Monsters University. A crisis in their academic career forces them to become partners, but can they become friends? RATING: G TIME: 1 hour, 42 minutes VERDICT: This prequel to the 2001 Pixar gem “Monsters Inc.” is a solid and affable family comedy. It lacks the originality and heart of the early Pixar features, problems that have been niggling at the studio lately. Overall this is a spoof of campus comedies, “Revenge of the Nerds” in particular, and it generates a good deal of laughs with the inept members of Mike and Sulley’s fraternity. This prequel is fine for what it is. It’s just difficult to forget what Pixar movies once were. – Jeffrey

Westhoff, Northwest Herald

“Much Ado About Nothing” HH½ STARRING: Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Fran Kranz PLOT: A modern retelling of Shakespeare’s classic comedy about two pairs of lovers with different takes on romance and a way with words. RATING: PG-13 for some sexuality and brief drug use TIME: 1 hour, 47 minutes VERDICT: The lack of polish gives director Joss Whedon’s film its charm. The history of Shakespeare movie adaptations is littered with stiff productions that crack under the weight of its sacred material. That, thankfully, is definitely not an issue to Whedon’s slinky, unadorned “Much Ado,” which, if anything, is too light. – Jake Coyle,

The Associated Press

“Now You See Me” HH STARRING: Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Isla Fisher PLOT: An FBI agent and an Interpol detective track a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances and reward their audiences with the money. RATING: PG-13 for language, some action and sexual content TIME: 1 hour, 56 minutes VERDICT: At the start of “Now You See Me,” a magic-themed heist movie with a high-powered cast including Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson, you really want to believe. The idea is fresh, the introductory scenes enticing. Plus, the actual magic performances that anchor the film are fun. But the dialogue turns formulaic, the plot gets increasingly hard to follow – even a film about magic needs an underlying logic – and character development seems to come to an utter halt. It all builds up to a dramatic reveal at the end, one that you weren’t expecting. But by then, you’ve disengaged. – Jocelyn

Noveck, The Associated Press

“The Purge” H½ STARRING: Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Max Burkholder PLOT: A family is held hostage for harboring the target of a murderous syndicate during the Purge, a 12-hour period in which any and all crime is legalized. RATING: R for strong disturbing violence and some language TIME: 1 hour, 25 minutes VERDICT: Characters are frequently urged to “release the beast” in “The Purge,” a high-concept home-invasion shocker set in a future where one night a year, all crime is legal. But what should be a clammy exercise in claustropho-

bic, queasy tension becomes, in the hands of writer/director James DeMonaco, an underpowered compendium of overfamiliar scare tactics and sledgehammer-subtle social satire. The intriguingly nightmarish premise may well rustle up a decent opening weekend for a picture that comes with the imprimatur of producer Michael Bay before the lukewarm word of mouth hastens its trip to DVD and VOD. – Neil Young, The Hollywood


“This Is The End” HHH STARRING: Jay Baruchel, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill PLOT: While attending a party at James Franco’s house, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and many other celebrities are faced with the apocalypse. RATING: R for crude and sexual content throughout, brief graphic nudity, pervasive language, drug use and some violence TIME: 1 hour, 47 minutes VERDICT: The seemingly exhausted gross-out comedy genre gets a strange temporary reprieve with “This Is The End,” an unlikable but weirdly compelling apocalyptic fantasy in which a bunch of young stars and stars-by-affiliation jokingly imagine their own mortality. A sort-of “The Day of the Locust” centered on successful comic actors, rather than down-and-outers, facing a conflagration in Los Angeles, this is a dark farce that’s simultaneously self-deprecating, self-serving, an occasion to vent about both friends and rivals and to fret about self-worth in a cocooned environment. With everyone here officially playing themselves, the result is like a giant home movie and a reality horror show, different enough from anything that’s come before to score with young audiences. “This Is The End” goes places you don’t expect it to, exploring the guys’ rifts and doubts and misgivings just as it wallows in an extravagant lifestyle that inevitably attracts public fascination. It also expresses the anxiety and insecurity of comics conscious of the big issues in life they are expected either to avoid or make fun of in their work. Rogen and Goldberg take the latter approach here, in an immature but sometimes surprisingly upfront way one can interpret seriously. Or not. – By Todd McCarthy, The

“White House Down” HH STARRING: Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal PLOT: While on a tour of the White House with his young daughter, a Capitol police officer springs into action to save his child and protect the president from a heavily armed group of paramilitary invaders. RATING: PG-13 for prolonged sequences of action and violence including intense gunfire and explosions, some language and a brief sexual image TIME: 2 hours, 17 minutes VERDICT: Staggeringly implausible, cartoonishly comical, Roland Emmerich’s “White House Down” is refreshingly dumb. Refreshing because carefree action absurdity, once the province of the summer cinema, is on the outs. Solemnity – even for caped, flying men in tight-fitting trousers – is in. But there’s an inarguable, senseless pleasure in watching Jamie Foxx, as the president of the United States, kicking a terrorist and shouting: “Get your hands off my Jordans!” Hail to the chief, indeed. “White House Down” follows Antoine Fuqua’s “Olympus Has Fallen,” released in March, as the second movie this year to imagine an assault on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The two films are very similarly plotted, but “White House Down” is notably less serious, more content to loosen the strings and acknowledge its own inherent preposterousness. – By

“World War Z” HHH

STARRING: Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz PLOT: United Nations employee Gerry Lane traverses the world in a race against time to stop the zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments, and threatening to destroy humanity itself. RATING: PG-13 for intense frightening zombie sequences, violence and disturbing images TIME: 1 hour, 56 minutes VERDICT: Might there be a real zombie apocalypse one day? The way zombies have invaded our pop culture the past several years, it’s maybe a bit less implausi-

What IS increasingly quite plausible, alas, is a global pandemic, and “World War Z,” the long-awaited Brad Pitt thriller, cleverly melds that real-life threat into the more fanciful zombie premise. Talk about more bang for your buck: Once you’ve settled back into your seat after a good snarling zombie chase, there’s nothing like the thought of a SARS outbreak to get the blood racing again. Despite the much-discussed production delays and budget overruns, this movie, based on the 2006 novel by Max Brooks (son of Mel), is pretty much what you’d want in a summer blockbuster: scary but not-too-gross zombies, a journey to exotic locales, a few excellent action scenes and did we mention Pitt? As Gerry Lane, a former U.N. investigator called upon to save the planet, Pitt is a calm, intelligent presence amid the insanity. The most impressive scene is at the beginning, as the streets of Philadelphia are suddenly overrun by packs of wild, raging zombies.

The final act takes place on a dramatically smaller scale, and at a slower pace. Oh, a reminder: Turn off those cellphones. After all, it’s not just your movie-going partner you’ll annoy here. Cellphones also happen to awaken zombies. Consider yourself warned. – Jocelyn Noveck,

Love is a one-way street for cautious teenage girl Dear Abby: I’m 15 and have been dating this guy for two weeks. I have known him for three years. I really like him, and he makes me happy. He has already told me he loves me, but I don’t say it back because I’m not going to say it until I’m absolutely sure I do. I know it bothers him, but Abby, am I right for not saying it back? Please answer fast because I need your help. – Teen

In New York Dear Teen: You are absolutely right. Although you have known this young man for three years, now that you are dating, the character of your relationship has changed. If he seems hurt that you’re not saying “I love you” back, just tell him you need time because this is all new to you. It’s truthful. Dear Abby: I finished college a year ago and officially moved out of my parents’ house. I then moved across the country for a job. For the past three months, I have been dating this great guy. I never dated as a teenager, and while I talk to my parents frequently on the phone, I have yet to mention him because I’m shy about it and don’t know how they

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips would react to me dating. I don’t want the relationship to go on for months and not tell them because I feel like they will treat it as if I’m a teenager dating for the first time. This is a serious adult relationship and not like a teen’s first boyfriend. How do I tell them? – Adult Relationship

In Arizona Dear Adult: While you’re not experienced, you’re no teenager. Your parents can minimize the importance of your relationship only if you allow them to. Granted, you are a late bloomer – but you also are an adult. The longer you keep this a secret, the harder it will be for you to open up. One way to introduce the subject would be to start saying “we” when you talk about where you’re going and what you’re doing. If they ask who the “we” is, you can then tell them you met a man named “John” a short while ago, that he seems nice, that you are seeing him, etc. Be prepared for questions and don’t be defensive. They

should be overjoyed at the news you are dating. Dear Abby: I’m 13 and read your column every day. My parents fight a lot. When they fight, I try to get in between them and keep it down. It’s not very effective, though. I don’t want their fighting to leak out. Therapy doesn’t seem possible. Do you have some tips to keep them from fighting with each other? I’m an only child and don’t have any relatives who live nearby. – The Referee Dear Referee: Parents fight for many reasons, none of them having to do with you. The problems could be lack of money, job stress or something in their relationship with each other that isn’t working. If it were possible for you to fix their marriage, I would advise you how to do it, but the only people who can do that are your parents themselves – if they are willing. If their fighting escalates to violence, rather than put yourself in the middle, you should call the police.

Berries are powerhouses of nutrition Dear Dr. K: Berry season is here again, and I keep hearing that berries are healthy. What’s in them that makes them so good for you? Dear Reader: Here in the Northeast, we’re enjoying strawberries and looking forward to raspberries, blueberries and even blackberries further down the road. Berries are perhaps the easiest way to follow the fruit part of the “eat more fruit and vegetables” advice you hear all the time, including from me. Berries naturally come in bite-sized portions. They’re sweet but have a nice low calorie count, partly because they contain a lot of water. If you don’t need to watch your calories – yes, there are people who are born thin – you can “pig out” on them. (Just don’t sprinkle much sugar on them.) Berries contain vitamins (C and a little bit of E, because of the seeds) and some lesser-known nutrients. But they also, somewhat surprisingly, contain a fair amount of fiber. A cup of raspberries contains 8 grams of fiber, which is more fiber than you’ll find in a serving of oatmeal. But what makes berries stand out nutritionally (and


ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff visually) are substances called anthocyanins. These substances give berries their vivid red, blue and purplish colors. Anthocyanins are antioxidants, which keep oxygen ions and other unstable molecules from damaging DNA, messing with cells’ energy-making machinery, stirring up inflammation in the body and having a variety of other harmful effects. Vitamin supplements with antioxidants in them generally have not been proven to benefit your health as many had hoped. However, there’s still a lot of evidence antioxidants are good for you, and foods that naturally contain antioxidants are thought to promote better health. Anthocyanins are concentrated in the skin of berries (as well as other fruits). In general, the more intense the color, the higher the anthocyanin content. So blueberries and blackberries usually contain more anthocyanins than strawberries or raspberries. And wild berries have more McHenry Villa Offers You the Following

antioxidants than their larger, paler, domesticated relations. Raspberries also contain a substance called ellagitannin, which imparts flavor and has antioxidant properties that add to the effects of anthocyanins. Be sure to wash your berries right before eating them. Berries can harbor viruses, bacteria and other pathogens that cause foodborne illnesses. For me, the best way to start a day is with a bowl of fresh, delicious berries. In fact, that’s what I had for breakfast today – with toast and coffee. I have a patient who is very knowledgeable about food and reportedly a good cook. She once chastised me for writing about how healthy certain foods were. “The point you should be emphasizing is that they are delicious, because they are. The fact that they’re also healthy is the icing on the cake.” She’s right. And berries are healthier than the icing on the cake.

Hockey was one of “iSING: SOUNDS OF A NEW GENERATION” the few sports that The Golfer in My Life and BLIZZARD THEATRE, ECC, ELGIN Son didn’t follow. Both have always been aware of the state of the game due to the The Children’s Theatre of Elgin and Fox Valley amount of ESPN they view but neither ever Theatre Company’s combined summer show will made it a point to watch the Hawks’ games. feature many current songs from 2000 through today with fun dance numbers.

Onto the week ahead. The 4th of July is almost here and I feel like a cartoon character, digging my heels into the ground and trying to stop a steaming locomotive. I just do not want the 4th to be here already. Can’t it be June 29th for about three more weeks? Summer has just begun but this holiday feels like the start of the countdown to the end of the season.

holiday would allow me to put a patriotic twist on my usual daily ìthings to do.î Yes, I can adjust my time spent on Sporcle (my favorite trivia site) and Pinterest to have an Independence Day theme. If you haven’t tried Sporcle yet, this week would be the perfect time to give it a whirl. When was the last time you named all fifty states and located them on the map? Or do you still know all the presidents well enough to list them in order? It really is eye-opening to see how much you remember from junior high and elementary school. Feeling super smart? Take a look at the History and Geography categories for even more American-centric quizzes. This might even be a great opportunity to challenge family members to some friendly competition. I am looking for some star-spangled fun, either with a new recipe or crafty idea, from Pinterest. Usually I only think about making the recipes or decorations I see on the site but this year I am going to do at least one! With some red, white and blue Pinspiration, this 4th might even be festive before the fireworks. Enjoy this weekend and get your red, white and blue ready! Autumn

Humorist Garrison Keillor won’t be taking a summer vacation. Instead, the creator and host of “A Prairie Home Companion” kicks off a 26-city “Radio Romance Tour 2013” next month. Keillor wraps up the current season of his popular public radio variety show today from Tanglewood in Massachusetts. Then he’s launching his coast-to-coast bus tour July 8 in Spokane, Wash. Keillor plans 27 concerts, from Washington state to Maine. The shows will not be broadcast. Keillor will be joined by comedian Fred Newman, who does sound effects, and pianist Richard Dworsky and the Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band featuring guitarist Pat Donohue and violinist and mandolinist Richard Kriehn. The shows will run more than two hours and will offer duet singing, with either singer Aoife O’Donovan or singer and fiddle player Sara Watkins.

Paramount announces plans for ‘Terminator’ trilogy The “Terminator” is coming back. Paramount announced Thursday it is rebooting the “Terminator” franchise and planning for a new trilogy of films, but it’s keeping mum on whether Arnold Schwarzenegger would play a role. Schwarzenegger starred as the title character in the original 1984 movie. It spawned a trilogy that earned more than $1 billion at the box office worldwide. Paramount says it will release the new “Terminator” in July 2015.

Deen fallout continues Sears, J.C. Penney and Walgreen said Friday they’re cutting ties with Paula Deen, adding to the growing list of companies severing their relationship following revelations that the Southern celebrity chef used racial slurs in the past. Meanwhile, Paula Deen’s upcoming cookbook, currently the No. 1 seller on, has been dropped by its publisher. In a brief statement Friday, Ballantine Books announced it had cancelled publication of “Paula Deen’s New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up.” The book was scheduled for October. QVC took a more gentle approach on Friday and announced it has decided to “take a pause” from Deen. The home shopping network said that Deen won’t be appearing on any upcoming broadcasts, and it will phase out her product assortment on its online sales channels over the next few months. “We all think it’s important, at this moment, for Paula, to concentrate on responding to the allegations against her and on her path forward,” said Mike George, QVC’s president and CEO in a letter posted on the company’s website. But QVC left the door open for Deen to return. “Some of you wonder whether this is a ‘forever’ decision – whether we are simply ending our association with Paula,” continued George. “We don’t think that’s how relationships work. People deserve second chances.” Deen issued her own statement that was posted on QVC’s webpage. “As you know, I have some important things to work on right now, both personally and professionally. And so we’ve agreed that it’s best for me to step back from QVC and focus on setting things right.”

Mick Jagger: Teaching school might have been nice Mick Jagger thinks his original career plan to become a school teacher might have provided plenty of satisfaction. The Rolling Stones frontman told BBC Radio Friday his music career has not been challenging intellectually and teaching might have been “gratifying” instead. He also said he had considered becoming a politician or a journalist when he was a teen. Instead he has become one of the most successful rock singers in history. Despite his interest in other careers, Jagger says he’s “very pleased” with how things have turned out. The band is marking its 50th year together with a series

of concerts that will also include a first ever appearance at the Glastonbury festival this weekend and a return in July to Hyde Park in central London.

Film academy invites 276 people to join its ranks Jennifer Lopez, Lena Dunham, Joseph GordonLevitt and Lucy Liu have received one of the most exclusive invitations in Hollywood. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Friday it has invited them, and 272 others, to join its ranks. Other invitees include Jason Bateman, Rosario Dawson, “Machete” star Danny Trejo, “Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig and “Before Midnight” writer-star Julie Delpy. All 16 branches of the film academy extended invitations to new members, from hairstylists and sound engineers to producers and publicists. Those who accept the invitations will be able to vote on the recipients of the next Academy Awards, set for March 2, 2014.

Publisher of Mitch Albom, Caroline Kennedy is sold Best sellers by Caroline Kennedy, Mitch Albom and Michael J. Fox are among more than 1,000 books published by Hyperion that have been acquired by Hachette Book Group. Hachette announced Friday it had purchased Hyperion, an imprint of Disney Publishing Worldwide.

Lathan Goumas –

Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford holds a belt presented to him by teammate Patrick Kane during the Stanley Cup victory rally Friday in Grant Park in Chicago.

Blackhawks’ party brings Fans fill streets, Grant Park city to standstill – almost to celebrate championship CHICAGO – Like millions of others in this happy, sun-soaked city, Ramona Achim looked forward to going downtown Friday and being part of something great. “We had to come here,” said Achim, a tourist from Romania. “We wanted to come here.” How could you blame her? All of the stars were on display. Picasso. Van Gogh. Monet. Renoir. Degas. Just to name a few. Wait, you thought she was talking about the Blackhawks parade? Not so much. As an estimated 2 million delirious Hawks fans lined parade routes, marched through downtown streets and packed Grant Park for a raucous celebration of the team’s Stanley Cup championship, a small group of people stuck to their daily routines.


VIEWS Tom Musick

Except nothing was routine about Friday. Confetti fell from windows high above Washington Street. Joyous fans clapped and screamed and snapped pictures as Hawks players waved from the tops of trolleys. Victory noise was everywhere. Air horns, sirens, “Chelsea Dagger,” you name it. A few doors from the parade route, Chicago resident Laura Wakeland tried to focus on her job at Harlan J. Berk Rare Coins.

CHICAGO – One by one, freshly shaven Blackhawks players paraded across a stage Friday morning in Grant Park, pumping their fists and toting hockey hardware in front of an unbroken sea of red and black. As chaotic and celebratory as the city’s Stanley Cup celebration had been three years ago when the Hawks captured their first championship in 49 years, Friday’s parade through Chicago’s streets and the rally that followed played out more like an expected crowning achievement. An estimated 2 million fans, who packed onto El trains and then filled both sides of Washington Street, relished the scene under sunny skies as the Hawks celebrated their second Stanley Cup title in four seasons. And somewhere between Jim Cornelison’s trade-

mark rendition of the national anthem and Corey Crawford’s profanity-laced speech, Chicagoans showed they still love a party. Fans filled Grant Park, commemorating a Stanley Cup championship clinched on Dave Bolland’s third-period goal that closed out a 17-second stretch of a Game 6 win over the Boston Bruins. Four days later, fans and players alike were still soaking in the championship moment. “I can’t think of a better team, a better bunch of guys to represent this city,” said Hawks captain Jonathan Toews, who hoisted the Stanley Cup over his head on his way to the lectern during Friday’s rally. “Hardworking guys, down-to-earth guys who go out and play for each other every single shift – [they] represent this city and what it means.”

Marengo makes Jacobs sweat on Day 1 By CHRIS BURROWS CRYSTAL LAKE – Will Benson and Jim Roberts interviewed for Jim Hinkle’s former job as Jacobs boys basketball coach about two months ago. But at the Gary Collins Shootout on Friday at Crystal Lake South, both men stood on opposite sides of the same court in new roles, with Hinkle looking on like a proud father. Roberts ended up succeeding Hinkle, but Benson, who last season coached the Jacobs sophomore team, became the new head coach at Marengo. “[Hinkle] stopped into practice the

other day, because he’s still around school, just to peek in,” Roberts said. “When somebody like that is there watching, you just hope that he’s proud of the product that he sees.” The Golden Eagles lost 12 seniors – the core of their team – after last season, but defeated a veteran Indians squad, 45-26, in the first game of pool play for each team.

Benson denied any added pressure or awkwardness with facing his former players. “It wasn’t about me or anything,” he said. “The kids and I have a good relationship regardless, and it was good to see them actually.” But Marengo, with its smaller school and much smaller frontcourt, surprised the Golden Eagles with its defensive intensity. The Indians tied the score, 9-9, early in the first half, and after an 8-3 Jacobs run, a threepointer by sophomore Zach Knobloch brought Marengo within 17-15 and reinvigorated its staunch defense.

“Cubs’ throwbacks from 1909. Will be worn tomorrow.” – (Len Kasper and Jim DeShaies) @lenandjd

MLB: Cubs at Seattle, 6 p.m., Fox The Cubs continue their interleague series against the Mariners. The Cubs’ Jeff Samardzija (5-7, 3.39 ERA) faces Aaron Harang (3-7, 5.29).

The New England Patriots are offering a new jersey to anyone who wants to get rid of their jerseys with Aaron Hernandez’s name on it. Hernandez was released by the team this week after he was charged with murder. Patriots spokesman Stacey James said children may not understand why their parents won’t want them wearing their Hernandez jersey.

Three players’ jerseys other teams should offer to take back from their fans in exchange for a new one of a different player: 1. O.J. Simpson 2. Raffi Torres 3. Milton Bradley

Club Fusion 17 Black wins national title R-B’s Frantti, 2 others named All-Americans By MAUREEN LYNCH Last year, Marengo-based Club Fusion’s elite 16 Black volleyball team grinded out a three-set match

to win a national title in the 16 Open Division at the annual AAU Girls Junior National Championships in Orlando, Fla. This year, the same group of players didn’t need gritty play. Fusion’s 17 Black team, led by Richmond-Burton outside hitter Ali Frantti, beat Academy Volleyball Cleveland on Wednesday night in Orlando to win a second straight AAU national title. Frantti received All-America honors, along with teammates Bryanna Weiskircher (Boylan setter)

and Simone Lee (Menomonee Falls, Wis., outside hitter). All three are committed to Penn State. “They were nothing short of dominant,” said Eric Schulze, general manager at Fusion. Ali Frantti “Last year [the championship match] was a lot more exciting. This year, they just dominated.” 17 Black received the top seed in Orlando and played a single three-

set match during pool play. Fusion was pushed to three sets in the quarterfinal against Alamo 17 Kaepa Premier (Texas), then beat Atlanta-based A5 Mizuno in the semifinal to earn a spot in the national championship match. 17 Black will try to win a second national title in a week at the USA Volleyball Junior National Championships in Dallas, which began Friday. Fusion is seeded fifth in the 17 Open division. Fusion-South 14 Red and Fusion-South 18 Silver also won AAU

national titles in the 14 Club and 18 Classic divisions, respectively. Both teams are based in Batavia at one of Fusion’s satellite locations. Fellow McHenry County volleyball club Sky High also sent a handful of teams to Orlando. Sky High 15 Black finished 16th in the 15 Open Division, and Sky High 17 Black finished 43rd in the 17 Open division. Sky High 18 Red was ninth and 18 White was 45th in the 18 Club division. Sky High also will compete in Dallas this weekend.

Not everyone in celebratory mood • MUSICK Continued from page C1 Friendly and funny, she admitted to not being able to name a Hawks player and not watching a game during the playoffs. “I have no idea what a Stanley Cup is,” Wakeland said, “but good for them.” And good for Wakeland for navigating the massive crowds to make it to work. “When I was walking down here from the train, I had to fight people just to get to work,” Wakeland said with a grin. “And I was just like, ‘People, let me get to work already! You have all day to party.’ ” Oh, they knew. It’s just that some people had tasks to complete that did not involve high-fiving anyone wearing red. Take Mark Dalton, a 57-year-old from Glendale Heights who works at Burnham Nationwide across from City Hall. His brother, John, lives in Woodstock. As for Dalton’s clients? Well, they live all over the place. “You’ve still got to do the work,” said Dalton, who’s not much of a hockey fan but did watch the final series. “The people in the other states that we’re working for, they’re not involved in this. They don’t feel the vibe. You know what I’m saying?”

I know what you’re saying. Back in 2010, Dalton learned to stay put during the morning of a Hawks parade. Several of his colleagues did not heed his advice this time around as they crossed the street to do business at City Hall. “They went over to do some early work this morning, and now they’re stranded over there,” Dalton said. “That happened to me the last time, so I knew. “I told them, ‘You’re going to get stranded.’ And they went anyway.” And they got stranded. Matt Heinlich almost got stranded, but he relied on an underground passage to get from the Richard J. Daley Center to his law office at 30 North LaSalle. Hours earlier, his train ride on the way to work was unlike any other in his professional life. Heinlich wore a suit and tie. No, his suit jacket did not have “Toews – 19” stitched on the back. “I was sticking out like a sore thumb,” said Heinlich, 29, of Geneva. But Heinlich is a Hawks fan, so he understood. He planned to sneak a peek from his bosses’ corner office as players paraded down Washington 21 floors below. Dalton understood, too: “It’s good to see a team from Chicago do something.”

Achim also embraced the craziness going past the front steps of the Art Institute. She’s from Cluj-Napoca. Have you heard of it? It’s in the center of Transylvania. “We like sports,” Achim said. “It’s not that we don’t like sports. “But it’s crazy how people celebrate the victory. We celebrate it, too, but not like this: The whole city. Everyone dressed up. “We usually celebrate after the game – one hour, or two, or the whole night. It depends how important the victory is.” This victory was pretty important. Even Wakeland realized that, even if the parade left her with more questions than answers. “It made me wonder, how many of these people are supposed to be at work?” Wakeland said. “Is this like the 1-point-whatever million that are unemployed? I don’t know. I don’t know who these people are. “At the same time, I think we all deserve a break and we all deserve a little fun. I’m sure if there are drinks later on, I’ll partake.” Cheers to that.

Lathan Goumas –

A fan raises a Blackhawks flag Friday as he celebrates during the Stanley Cup victory rally in Grant Park in Chicago. this is fun is because of all you guys coming out and supporting this team. It makes hockey fun. There’s a saying I said throughout the playoffs that represents this team perfectly: That’s hockey, baby.” With that, Kane handed the championship belt to Crawford, who used a series of profanities before leaving the stage with a parting shot, bringing more cheers from the capacity crowd standing in front of him. “No one will ever take this away from us,” Crawford said. “We’re the champs.” The Hawks’ season started with an NHL-record 24-game

unbeaten streak and included winning the President’s Trophy, awarded to the team with the league’s best record. After falling behind 3-1 in the Western Conference semifinals to rival Detroit, the Hawks responded with series wins over Los Angeles and then Boston to capture another Stanley Cup championship. Coach Joel Quenneville said his team was one filled with players committed to one another and to the franchise. He then paid homage to Chicago, saying, “We’re all fortunate to play in a special place like Chicago.”

Orange pumps up Jacobs in 2nd half • SHOOTOUT Continued from page C1 “I saw our guys when we came in the gym and went to warm up before the game, and they didn’t have bounce,” Roberts said of his summer team, which included three seniors, three juniors and freshman Cameron Krutwig. “They didn’t have energy, and they weren’t getting the sweat going ... as a result, the game starts and that’s how we play.” Junior guard Chrishawn Orange, a returning starter

from last season, intervened at halftime to awaken the Jacobs offense. “In the second half I told them, ‘Let’s go, turn it up, let’s get this win,’ ” Orange said. “Coach looks at me to lead the team, so I try my best to be a vocal player out there.” As a result, Jacobs went into overdrive and used a 26-9 run, fueled by drives to the basket by Krutwig and junior Kenton Mack and post-ups from senior Nick Anderson, to turn a six-point halftime lead into a motivating result for both teams.


Huntley’s Beck back for chance to defend crown By PATRICK MASON

Kane to fans: ‘What’s up, Chicago?’ Players, coaches and other team personnel traveled from the United Center to Grant Park by double-decker bus, passing down city streets where confetti dropped from buildings and where fans snapped photos on their cell phones and digital cameras. Friday’s celebration was the culmination of a week that started in Boston, where the Hawks finished off the Bruins before returning to Chicago early Tuesday morning. Conn Smythe Trophy winner Patrick Kane was one of several players to speak at Friday’s rally, fresh off his appearance on “Late Night With David Letterman.” Kane awarded Crawford with the team-issued championship belt, awarded to the top star after each game. Despite being honored as the best player in the playoffs, Kane said Crawford was the team’s top performer in series wins over Minnesota, Detroit, Los Angeles and Boston. Kane received one of the biggest ovations during Friday’s rally. “What’s up, Chicago?” Kane said as he approached the lectern. “The only reason

Brett Moist – For the Northwest Herald

Huntley’s Gene Beck lines up a putt during the final round of the 2012 McHenry County Senior Amateur at Pinecrest in Huntley. Beck won the senior first flight and is back to defend his title beginning Saturday.

“We’re just trying to get better,” Benson said. “... I always like coming back here [to the Gary Collins Shootout]. It’s close, you see a lot of different teams, and especially because ... I don’t know if there are any other Big Northern (Conference) teams here.” For Jacobs, which played in summer tournaments at McHenry and Loyola Academy and in the Wauconda summer league, this tournament marks the end of a gritty first summer under Roberts. “We’ve been grinding pretty hard,” Roberts said. Gene Beck is ultra-competitive. It’s how he has always been. He remembers when his competitive nature drove him to great heights in 1988 when he became a motocross champion racing dirt bikes in Illinois. His days of pushing his body to the limit have passed, but his mind still wants that rush. Now, Beck, 53, works in the refrigeration service business and has a “work first, play later” attitude that allows the Huntley resident to escape to tee boxes and finely manicured greens about two times a week to play golf with several friends. Swinging the clubs acts as an outlet for his competitiveness. “Once I get the taste of something, I want to master it,” Beck said. “Golf is so challenging. It’s the most challenging sport I’ve ever played and because it’s really hard it drives to me to get better and better.” That is a scary thought to his fellow golfers at this weekend’s McHenry County Senior Amateur at Pinecrest Golf Club in Huntley, where

Beck will try to repeat as champion. The tournament will begin Saturday morning and continue through Sunday afternoon. More than 60 golfers age 50 and older will play 18 holes each day. The tournament has taken place during the late summer months for more than 15 years and traditionally has been played on weekdays, but tournament organizer Mike Yackle moved it to a weekend in hopes of a more significant turnout with less work conflicts. He also moved it to late June in an attempt to escape late summer rain storms. But even as one of the only senior amateur tournaments in the area, the numbers have remained steady at around 60 to 80 competitors despite the tournament’s ability to accommodate 100 golfers. Yackle had said he would be happy to arrange other options in the event of a bigger turnout, but he hasn’t had to do so. “It’s getting frustrating. We don’t get the turnout we want to get even though we tried everything we could think of,” Yackle said on the heels of closing the registration with just more than 60

golfers. Still, the tournament has been a staple of the McHenry County community for golfers 50 and older. Yackle remembers back a few years ago when the course record at Pinecrest was broken in the tournament. He also remembers all of the camaraderie that is associated with the event when the golfers get together. The same names continue to return each year to the tournament, which shows its staying power. “It’s awesome to see the same people continue to come back each year,” Yackle said. “Once you’re here, you realize what a good time it is.” The tournament features a friendly atmosphere that is a step up from playing a laidback foursome with friends, but also competitive enough to get the blood flowing and challenge top golfers. “When you get out there I see some golfers get nervous when they are having their picture taken or being followed by a small crowd,” Beck said. “People aren’t used to it, but it makes it fun. I think you need a little edge to be able to play and be successful in something like this. It’s fun.”

C-G grad Vilardo settles in at Penn Playing two sports and being part of six different schools over the past three years has been a whirlwind for Michael Vilardo. “It was definitely not ideal,” said Vilardo, a Cary-Grove grad. “But I’ve learned a lot about myself as a person.” A prep hockey standout who committed to Ohio State as a sophomore at C-G, Vilardo’s first college choice seems like ancient history. After stints at the University of Richmond and two junior colleges, Vilardo has Michael found a sport Vilardo and a school that is a perfect fit. This spring, Vilardo earned the starting second base job for NCAA Division I Pennsylvania’s baseball program and achieved Big 5 Rookie of the Year honors while leading the Quakers in RBIs (31), doubles (19) and total bases (82) to go along with a .320 average. “I couldn’t be happier,” he said. “The one good thing is I always had to keep proving myself to new groups of people.” In high school, Vilardo was certain that hockey would be his future. “I was 16 when I made my first college decision,” he said. “I wasn’t mentally prepared to make that decision then.” By the time he was a senior, baseball and the University of Richmond were his choices. “When I got there, two of the four coaches who recruited me had left,” he said. “They moved me to the outfield and it wasn’t the best for me.” Vilardo said he chose to leave Richmond after a semester and pursue hockey again, playing for the Chicago Steel of the United States Hockey League. Vilardo even played in the Team USA developmental program with Blackhawks left wing Brandon Saad. “I decided that hockey wasn’t something I wanted to pursue long term,” he said. When he chose Penn – and baseball again – Vilardo put his academic career into overdrive. He enrolled as a full-time student at McHenry County College and Harper College to complete 62 credit hours by August 2012 and earn his associate degree. Though he was a freshman on the baseball roster at Penn, Vilardo said he entered school as a sophomore academically. “I took a really long route, but things have paid off and I’m happy,” he said. “I’ve learned that you have to be confident with your decisions and in yourself.” Vilardo started 42 games for Penn at second base, ranking second on the team with 25 runs scored and a .477 slugging percentage. He also was named second-team All-Ivy League by He began the summer with the Columbia (S.C.) Blowfish in the Coastal Plains League, a 14-team summer collegiate

Coleman, a fifth-year senior defensive lineman, led the team last season with 13.5 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks and is a two-time All-Pioneer Football League selection. This month, Coleman was named to the College Football Performance Awards Football Championship Subdivision preseason defensive line watch list. The awards are based on scientific analysis of a player’s overall effectiveness.

Celtics rebuild without Pierce Trade of team captain, Garnett to Nets signals end of era in Boston By JIMMY GOLEN The Associated Press BOSTON – Letting Doc Rivers go to the Los Angeles Clippers was the first sign. Getting rid of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett clinched it. The Boston Celtics are rebuilding. The Celtics have agreed to the terms of a deal that would send the two remaining members of the Big Three that

won the 2008 NBA title to the Brooklyn Nets for a package of draft picks and players. Garnett is a future Hall of Famer, but it’s Pierce’s departure that signals the end of an era for the league’s most-decorated franchise. “It’s sad to see everybody leave Boston. You just want them to go someplace where they have a chance to win, and they have,” Rivers said at Clippers draft headquarters

late Thursday night. “It’s a great trade for Boston, too; not now, later. Danny wanted to rebuild, and that’s what he’s doing.” The longest-tenured member of the Celtics, Pierce is the team’s captain, a 10-time All-Star and a likely Hall of Famer. He is the second-leading scorer in the history of the NBA’s most-decorated franchise, and also is in the team’s top seven in rebounds, assists,

steals, games and minutes played. Garnett is also a future Hall of Famer, though only the last six years of his career were in Boston. It’s Pierce, who slipped to 10th in the 1998 draft and has been a Celtic ever since, who had a chance to spend his entire career with the franchise and add his name to a list that includes Hall of Famers Larry Bird, Bill Russell and John Havlicek.

Armstrong uninvited, unwanted Tour guest By JOHN LEICESTER The Associated Press

Carlos Ortiz appears Friday at a hearing in Bristol, Conn. New Britain State’s attorney said investigators arrested Ortiz in Bristol on Wednesday in connection with the murder case against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.


Conn. man arraigned Ortiz faces gun charge in case against Hernandez The ASSOCIATED PRESS ATTLEBORO, Mass. – An arrested man from former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez’s hometown was transferred to Massachusetts on Friday to face a gun charge connected to the murder case against Hernandez, while a third suspect surrendered to authorities in Florida. Carlos Ortiz, who lives in Bristol, Conn., and Ernest Wallace, who walked into a South Florida police station, were the men identified earlier as being with Hernandez and the victim the night of his shooting death, a prosecutor said. Ortiz was charged with carrying an unlicensed firearm in North Attleborough, where Hernandez lives, on June 17, the day Boston semipro football player Odin Lloyd was found shot to death near Hernandez’s home. Details of the charge weren’t released. Wallace, whose wanted poster was released Thursday night, surren-

dered in Miramar, Fla., police said. Authorities had been seeking Wallace on a charge of acting as an accessory after Lloyd’s murder. Details of that allegation also weren’t released. Police arrested Hernandez on Wednesday at his home and charged him with orchestrating Lloyd’s execution-style shooting. Prosecutors said Hernandez orchestrated the killing because Lloyd talked to the wrong people at a nightclub. Hernandez, Ortiz and Wallace were in a car with Lloyd shortly before his death, Bristol County, Mass., District Attorney C. Samuel Sutter said. “We now have in custody the three individuals who were in the silver Nissan Altima,” Sutter said Friday when Ortiz was arraigned on the gun charge in Attleboro District Court. All three men have ties to Bristol, Conn.: Hernandez grew up there, Ortiz had been living there, and authorities had conflicting addresses for Wallace there and in Miramar. Hernandez pleaded not guilty to

murder and was denied bail Thursday. Ortiz also was being held without bail pending a court hearing on July 9. Wallace was taken to a jail in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., pending extradition proceedings, police said. Hernandez’s lawyer argued in court that the case is circumstantial. He said Hernandez, who was cut by the Patriots the day he was arrested, wanted to clear his name. Ortiz’s attorney, John Connors, said he will seek bail for his client at the July 9 hearing. He described Ortiz as a “gentle person” and said he will advise Ortiz to plead not guilty. “I can say that his charge has nothing to do with homicide,” Connors said. It was unclear if Wallace had a lawyer, and he couldn’t be reached for comment in jail. His surrender surprised Miramar police. Wallace walked into the police station and told officers there was a warrant for his arrest, which officers confirmed by checking a computer database.

PORTO VECCHIO, Corsica – Lance Armstrong made himself the uninvited guest at the Tour de France on Friday, coming back to haunt the 100th edition of the race and infuriating riders both past and present by talking at length in a newspaper interview about doping in the sport. Armstrong told Le Monde that he still considers himself the record-holder for Tour victories, even though all seven of his titles from 1999 Lance to 2005 were stripped Armstrong from him last year for doping. He said his life has been ruined by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency investigation that exposed as lies his years of denials that he and his teammates doped. He also took another swipe at cycling’s top administrators, darkly suggesting they could be brought down by other skeletons in the sport’s closet. None of those comments broke new ground, but in answering questions from Le Monde – a newspaper he scorned when he was still competing – Armstrong ensured that his views on doping at the Tour would have maximum impact in France and couldn’t easily be written off as sour grapes being hurled at the race from afar. The respected daily is very much France’s newspaper of record. Its interview with the rider and his assertion that doping won’t be eradicated from cycling dominated French airwaves ahead of the race start Saturday, causing dismay and anger in the sport desperate to prove that it has turned the page on his era of serial cheating. The Tour’s director, Christian Prudhomme, suggested Armstrong was milking the race’s notoriety to further his own agenda. “This is a very big tournament, just look around: There are 2,300 accredited journalists here, there are cameras everywhere. So if someone wanted to transmit a message, this is the time obviously, especially since everyone likes this kind of controversial statements,” he said. Armstrong’s comments and the

consternation they caused highlighted cycling’s dilemma: It is a sport fighting to give itself a cleaner, brighter future by combating drug cheats but much of that good work is being overshadowed by the dirty secrets of dopers from the past. Pre-Tour, a drip-drip-drip of doping confessions and revelations about the Armstrong era have rained on the sport. Armstrong’s former rival on French roads, 1997 Tour winner Jan Ullrich, admitted to blood-doping for the first time. French media also reported that a Senate investigation into the effectiveness of anti-doping controls pieced together evidence of drug use at the 1998 Tour by Laurent Jalabert, a former star of the race now turned broadcaster. Armstrong’s claim that it was “impossible” to win the Tour without doping in his era echoed what he already told TV talk show host Oprah Winfrey in January, when he finally confessed. Then, he said doping was “part of the job.” The banned hormone erythropoietin, or EPO, wasn’t detectable by cycling’s doping controls until 2001 and so was widely abused because it prompts the body to produce oxygen-carrying red blood cells, giving a big performance boost to endurance athletes. “The Tour is a test of endurance where oxygen is decisive,” Le Monde quoted Armstrong as saying. It published the interview in French. Asked later by The Associated Press to clarify his comments, Armstrong confirmed on Twitter he was talking solely about the period from 1999 to 2005. He indicated that doping might not be necessary now. “Today? I have no idea. I’m hopeful it’s possible,” Armstrong tweeted. Still, his comments touched a nerve – both because cycling has since spent heavily on a pioneering anti-doping program and because Armstrong, once very much a boss of the peloton, is now a pariah. “Those were cursed years for the Tour de France,” Prudhomme said. “When Armstrong said it was impossible to win the Tour during those years without doping, he is probably trying to find excuses for himself and say implicitly that there was nothing else he could have done.”




Keselowski wins in rain at Kentucky

Inbee Park overcomes fog, leads U.S. Women’s Open

Franklin finishes in style


The ASSOCIATED PRESS SPARTA, Ky. – Brad Keselowski took his final lead on the 156th lap and went on to a rain-shortened victory Friday night in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Kentucky Speedway. Showers halted the race at lap 170 in the scheduled 200lap event, but drivers were expecting it to resume before another pocket of rain forced officials to call it off. Junior wins pole: The questions during NASCAR Sprint Cup qualifying Friday were how many drivers would raise Kentucky Speedway’s record and by how much. Dale Earnhardt Jr. provided the answer of the eight that broke it, clocking 183.636 mph to wrest the mark from Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson and the pole for Saturday night’s race.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. – Inbee Park led the U.S. Women’s Open with the second round suspended by fog. The top-ranked Park shot a 4-under-par 68 Friday for a 9-under total to lead fellow South Korean I.K. Kim by two strokes. The horn sounded with Park on the 18th fairway, and the group finished the hole. She calmly sank a birdie putt from about 12 feet to move closer to history. Park is seeking to win the year’s first three majors; no one has accomplished that feat in a season with at least four. She has five victories this season. Kim shot a 69 in the morning session. Of the players yet to finish the round, the closest, England’s Jodi Ewart Shadoff, was five strokes back with three holes to go. Ha-Neul Kim, the first-round leader, had a 77 to fall back to 1 under. AT&T National: At Bethesda, Md., Jordan Spieth, playing with nothing to lose, gave himself another chance to win going into the weekend at the AT&T National. Spieth hit every green in regulation and extended his streak to 29 holes without a bogey on a tough Congressional course, giving him a 5-under 66 and a share of the lead with

Roberto Castro (69) before storms halted the second round. They were at 7-under 135, with the round to be completed Saturday morning. Senior Players Championship: At Pittsburgh, Fred Couples roared through his first 11 holes in the second round of the Champions Tour major, ripping off seven birdies at water-logged Fox Chapel to take the lead at 11 under. Then the weather managed to do what the defenseless course could not, stopping the Hall of Famer with a sudden downpour that suspended play for the day with most of the field still on the course. First-round leader John Huston was two shots back at 9 under. Irish Open: At Maynooth, Ireland, American Peter Uihlein and England’s Robert Rock shared the second-round lead in the Irish Open, while Rory McIlroy missed the cut in his final tournament before the British Open.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS INDIANAPOLIS – Missy Franklin closed out the U.S. national championships with a flourish. She won the 100-meter backstroke in record time, hugged her friend and future college teammate before immediately turning her attention to next month’s world championships. If she swims as well in Barcelona as she did in Indianapolis, America’s teenage swimming sensation could rule the world. She was the only swimmer to break 30 seconds over the final 50 meters in the 100 back Friday, finishing in 58.67 to win her fourth national title of the week and set a U.S. Open and long-course nationals record. Elizabeth Pelton was second in 59.27. “Actually, I am surprised. I’m really, really happy with my times here,” Franklin said as she stood next to Pelton. “I wasn’t sure what to expect.” It’s not just her times that have been impressive at the IUPUI Natatorium, still one of the world’s fastest pools. Franklin has won four of

Sox send wrong message to Hahn SOX INSIDER Meghan Montemurro CHICAGO – Squandering a five-run, first-inning lead isn’t a good way to convince your general manager he should keep the team together. After blowing a 5-0 lead en route to a 19-10 loss in Game 1 of Friday’s doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians, the White Sox are running out of time. The Sox followed that performance by falling behind 4-0 in Game 2 before they even had an at-bat. If it wasn’t yet clear to general manager Rick Hahn, who is expected to address the team’s struggles today, it should be now. This season is a lost cause for the Sox. “We are all really close in here. I don’t think losing games or how we lose a game is going to affect that,” Game 1 starting pitcher Hector Santiago said. “It’s still a great group of guys. Everybody is trying to back each other up and be behind each other. I don’t think something like this is going to tear us apart.” The most frustrating part for manager Robin Ventura and the Sox has been their inability to put together a complete game. Ventura is beginning to sound like a broken record, and it’s becoming the same old tiresome story for the Sox. When they have a great outing by their starting pitcher, their offense fails to show up or their defense botches routine plays leading to unearned runs. On Friday, it was the pitchers’ turn to shoulder the blame. According to Fangraphs, the Sox’s win expectancy was 90.4 percent when Alejandro De Aza walked in his second at-bat of the first inning against the Indians. How quickly that changed. Santiago, given a five-

Sox Insider INDIANS 19, WHITE SOX 10 (GAME 1) Tipping point: The White Sox were primed to cruise to an easy win after taking a 5-0 lead in the first inning. Instead, Sox pitchers failed to protect the lead as the Indians scored 14 consecutive runs en route to the rout. On the mound: Sox starter Hector Santiago immediately gave away the 5-0 lead, allowing five runs in the second. The Indians tacked on nine more runs off reliever Brian Omogrosso, including six in the fourth inning. The Sox failed to pitch a perfect inning, with the Indians sending seven batters to the plate four different innings. At the plate: The Sox bounced Indians rookie right-hander Trevor Bauer after two-thirds of an inning, scoring five runs on six hits in the first. Adam Dunn went 2 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs. Eight Sox recorded at least one hit in the loss. Under the radar: In an effort to save the bullpen for the second game of the doubleheader, combined with a generally ineffective performance from his pitchers, manager Robin Ventura put in outfielder Casper Wells to pitch the ninth inning. It marked Wells’ first career appearance, and he didn’t allow a hit in the scoreless inning while walking one and striking out one. – Meghan Montemurro run advantage after the first inning, subsequently surrendered five runs on six hits in the second inning and with one out in the third inning he had to be pulled from the game. Rreliever Brian Omogrosso picked up where Santiago left off. The Indians tagged Omogrosso for nine runs in 21/3 innings. It eventually got so bad for the Sox that Ventura turned to outfielder Casper Wells to pitch the ninth in order to save the bullpen for Game 2. Wells was the only one of five Sox pitchers to not allow a hit during his outing in Game 1. Left-hander Jose Quintana immediately put the Sox in a hole to start Game 2 by allowing four runs in the first. “You just scratch your head,” Ventura said. “You don’t see that coming as far as Hector going out there and not getting through four. It’s unusual. It’s just one of those where they club you around.” Compounding Ventura’s frustrations: Outfielder Dayan Viciedo had another blunder, this time on the base paths, when he ignored third base coach Joe McEwing’s stop sign

Konerko injury unlikely to lead to stint on DL

Wise frustrated by setbacks

By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO CHICAGO – The White Sox, trying to find a way to get back on track in what is shaping up to be a lost season, can’t afford to have first baseman Paul Konerko out of the lineup. Konerko sat out Thursday’s doubleheader against the Indians, the third and fourth games he has missed because of lower right Paul Konerko back tightness. Konerko, 37, received six injections before Thursday’s game to help alleviate the inflammation in his back. An MRI taken Wednesday did not reveal any serious ailment in his back beyond the wear and tear of playing 17 years in the majors. Konerko, who spoke for the first time since experiencing the back tightness, said he woke up Monday morning and could barely stand, almost unable to move because his back was “really, really bound up.” “I don’t have the best hips in the world … probably all of it contributes to that,” Konerko said. “So I do get a lot of soreness throughout the year that I kind of have to stay ahead of. This kind of just came out of nowhere.” Before Friday’s first game, manager Robin Ventura deemed Konerko going on the disabled list as “a long shot.” “Right now it’s day by day,” Ventura said. “But depending on how he feels and if it lingers and goes into the next couple of days, you could be thinking about it just to make sure you get it right.” Konerko hopes he will be

“I don’t have the best hips in the world ... probably all of it contributes to that (sore back).” Paul Konerko White Sox irst baseman/DH back in the lineup Sunday against the Indians, and although he wouldn’t rule out being ready for today’s game, it’s considered a long shot that he will play. He is, however, feeling better than he did earlier in the week. Konerko isn’t worried a few days away from facing live pitching will affect him at the plate. If anything, Konerko said, maybe it will help him. He’s hitting .253 with seven home runs and 30 RBIs in 66 games. “We have a day off Monday, so if I was sore after Sunday I’d have Monday to rest,” Konerko said. “But that’s at least my goal. I don’t know if it’s realistic or not, but that’s what I’m shooting for.” Saturday represents an important day for Konerko and the Sox. Konerko plans to swing a bat for the first time since he last played Sunday to see how his back feels. If he still experiences tightness or is unable to let loose while swinging, Konerko admitted that going on the DL would be a legitimate possibility. Konerko doesn’t want to hold the team back by having one less player available if he is sidelined for an extended stretch. “I haven’t tested it really at all,” Konerko said. “But I’ll be honest with them and let them really know. If that’s what needs to be done, that’s what needs to be done, but I don’t want to do that.”

By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO CHICAGO – Dewayne Wise’s first experience with an oblique strain came at an inopportune time. The White Sox outfielder was on rehab assignment at Triple-A Charlotte, steadily working back from a right hamstring injury, when he felt like he got stabbed in his side during batting practice. Wise, who has been on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to May 30, hopes he will be back soon. However, even though Wise doesn’t believe it’s a serious oblique strain, there is no timetable for his return. Wise labeled the setback as “really frustrating.” “Nobody wants to be on the DL,” Wise said. “Just seeing your boys out there struggling, you just want to do whatever you can to get back and help. Now there’s

another injury, so that’s set me back a while. I’m just trying to keep a good attitude about it, just keep working and try to get better.” Defensive letdown: Going from statistically the best defensive team in baseball last season to one of the worst this season has perplexed manager Robin Ventura. The Sox committed only 70 errors in 2012 – the fewest in the majors – but through 75 games entering Friday they already had 55 errors. Twelve times the Sox have had at least two errors in a game, and they are on pace to finish with 119 errors this season. Given the defense returned almost every starter this season, Ventura has been mystified as to why the Sox are struggling in the field. “They’re the ones that set the standard last year to be able to do this,” Ventura said of the Sox’s defense. “I look at

that more than anything else. I know it’s there, but you are scratching your head to see how it got to this point.” Ventura said every day there is an emphasis on defense and supporting the pitchers, but so far the Sox have yet to consistently follow through. “We’re hard on each other. You have to be diligent and be on top of it. We’re emphasizing the same things. We can’t win without playing good defense.”

Gillaspie back with team: Before Thursday’s doubleheader, the Sox reinstated third baseman Conor Gillaspie from the paternity list. On Wednesday, Ventura said he expected the Sox to call up another reliever because of the doubleheader. However, the Sox opted to keep third baseman Brent Morel as the 26th man, which Major League Baseball allows for doubleheaders.

and then half-heartedly ran home. He was easily thrown out to end the eighth, and Ventura immediately removed him from the game. “I think it bothers everybody,” Ventura said. “Again, you take care of it and make sure they know it and you don’t want to see it again.” Ultimately, the onus is on the players to mentally and physically be prepared every day because right now, they’re making it easy for Hahn to justify trading away any player whose name isn’t Chris Sale or Paul Konerko. “You hear stuff and hear trades and this guy is moving here, but you try not to worry about it,” Santiago said. “You go out and play ball and hopefully the next game is a little better than what happened here in this game.” • Meghan Montemurro covers the White Sox and Cubs for Shaw Media.

Federer’s conqueror stumbles




at Seattle 6:15 p.m. Fox AM-720 CLEVELAND 3:10 p.m. WGN AM-670

By STEPHEN WILSON The Associated Press LONDON – The player who stunned Roger Federer in one of Wimbledon’s greatest upsets didn’t stick around long. Two days after eliminating the seven-time champion on Centre Court, Sergiy Stakhovsky lost to Jurgen Melzer in four sets Friday in the third round at the All England Club. The 116th-ranked Ukrainian couldn’t replicate the serve-andvolley magic that stifled Federer, losing, 6-2, 2-6, 7-5, 6-3, to the lefthanded Austrian. While Federer struggled with Stakhovsky’s serve, Melzer broke him six times. “I’m just a little disappointed that I got so blinded by the game I produced with Roger that I kept going with the same game I played against Jurgen, which was just not right,” Stakhovsky said. Stakhovsky, who called for the trainer and had his right ankle taped in the first set, kept coming to the net even though Melzer was zeroing in on his serve. “I think I just played stupid,” the Ukrainian said. Doing everything right so far has been second-seeded Andy Murray, who trounced Tommy Robredo, 6-2, 6-4, 7-5, under the Centre Court roof to cruise into the fourth round. The U.S. Open champion hasn’t dropped a set this week in his bid to become the first British player to win the men’s trophy in 77 years. “I played my best match of the tournament so far,” said Murray, who no longer has Federer or Rafael Nadal in his half of the draw and remains on course to meet No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the final. Advancing to the third round were fourth-seeded David Ferrer and No. 13 Tommy Haas. No. 15 Nicolas Almagro was knocked out by Poland’s Jerzy Janowicz in a third-round match. Among the women, No. 7 Angelique Kerber was ousted in three sets in second-round play by Estonia’s Kaia Kanepi. Kerber became the sixth player among the top-10 seeded women to go out.

Friday at Wimbledon LONDON – A look at Wimbledon on Friday: Men’s seeded winners: No. 2 Andy Murray; No. 4 David Ferrer; No. 13 Tommy Haas; No. 24 Jerzy Janowicz; No. 26 Alexandr Dolgopolov; No. 28 Jeremy Chardy Men’s seeded losers: No. 15 Nicolas Almagro; No. 29 Grigor Dimitrov; No. 32 Tommy Robredo; Women’s seeded winners: No. 15 Marion Bartoli; No. 19 Carla Suarez Navarro; No. 20 Kirsten Flipkens; Women’s seeded losers: No. 7 Angelique Kerber; No. 29 Alize Cornet. Rain-affected matches: Seven singles matches that were scheduled Thursday have been postponed or suspended because of the rain delays. Stat of the Day: 10. Of the top 10 seeds in the men’s and women’s draws, only 10 – six men, four women – have advanced to the third round. It equals the worst performance by the top 10 at any Grand Slam in the 45-year history of the Open era. Quote of the Day: “Nobody’s going to take it away from me. If someone asked me, ‘Would you rather beat Roger and lose in the next round?’ I would always take it, obviously.” – Sergiy Stakhovsky, after losing in the third round to Jurgen Melzer. On court Saturday: No. 1 Novak Djokovic vs. No. 28 Jeremy Chardy; No. 1 Serena Williams vs. Kimiko Date-Krumm; No.4 David Ferrer vs. No. 26 Alexandr Dolgopolov; No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska vs. Madison Keys; No. 6 Li Na vs. No. 32 Klara Zakopalova; No. 7 Tomas Berdych vs. No. 27 Kevin Anderson; No. 8 Juan Martin Del Potro vs. Grega Zemlja; No. 8 Petra Kvitova vs. No. 25 Ekaterina Makarova; No. 9 Richard Gasquet vs. Bernard Tomic; No. 13 Tommy Haas vs. Feliciano Lopez; No. 14 Samantha Stosur vs. No. 23 Sabine Lisicki; Laura Robson vs. Marina Erakovic. – The Associated Press With four of the top 10 men also gone after the second round, it equals the worst performance by the top 10 at any Grand Slam in the 45-year history of the Open era. For the second straight day, play was disrupted by rain, and the sliding roof was closed over Centre Court. Four men’s singles matches

Stocks slip, ending 7 months of gains in S&P

Roxanne Johnson, general manger of Scoops Dairy and Dogs


NEW YORK – Stocks ended mostly lower on Wall Street as the market closed out a turbulent month. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 114 points, or 0.8 percent, to close at 14,909 Friday. The Standard & Poor’s 500 fell six points, or 0.4 percent, to 1,606. The Nasdaq composite edged up a point to 3,403. The S&P 500 had its first monthly loss since October. It still had its best first half of a year since 1998. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.49 percent from 2.47 percent. Rising and falling stocks were evenly matched on the New York Stock Exchange. Volume was heavier than usual at 4.4 billion shares.

Mobile meals Food trucks find niche in McHenry County By JIM DALLKE WOODSTOCK – Any parent of an athlete will tell you finding time for dinner during a busy sports week is nearly impossible. After traveling from practice, to game, to practice, to weekend tournaments, forget about putting a homecooked meal on the table. That’s where Scoops Dairy and Dogs food truck comes in. Scoops is Woodstock’s only food truck that cooks meals on site – and it’s one of the only such establishments in the entire county. In May Scoops began serving fresh Chicago-style hot dogs, chili dogs, Italian beef and Italian sausage out of a trailer it purchased in April. The trailer gives General Manager Roxanne Johnson the ability to hook up to her truck and find her customers, rather than the other way around. “Business has been pretty good,” said Johnson, who also has operated the brick-and-mortar version of Scoops for the past three years. “Once people found out we were here, they’ve started requesting us.” The food truck has allowed Scoops to expand its customer base, and it plans to serve at the upcoming county fair and other summer festivals. But the inspiration for Scoops has always been to help busy families going to and from baseball games, Johnson said. “We wanted to support the local sports teams,” she said. “We donate a portion back to Woodstock Little League … Parents have been very good to us.” Recently, the popularity of food trucks has soared in cities like Chicago. The business lunch crowd in the Loop has flocked to the brick-andmortar alternative, but food truck success hasn’t quite made it to the northwest suburbs. “I think some of it has to do with location,” said Pam Cumpata, president of the McHenry County Economic Development Corp. “In Chicago

We don’t have the dense population here.” With less foot traffic, location is key for McHenry County food trucks, according to Mary Jo Gould, owner of MJ’s Coffee Bar in McHenry. “I’m not going after the business

person,” Gould said. “I’m going to wherever there’s going to be a large amount of people.” MJ’s Coffee Bar, which operates in a trailer similar to Scoops, opened in 2004 and sells primarily at area festivals. Along with coffee and sweets, MJ’s specializes in “wild dogs,” which are hot dogs made from buffalo, elk, and wild boar. “We wanted something that would set us apart from the other vendors,” she said. “People were intrigued, but at first they didn’t know what do with them. I told people to take three, divvy them out to their friends, and let me know what they thought. People had a blast with them, and they took off.” Gould said from July to October MJ’s Coffee Bar is booked solid, serving at festivals and fall football games, and her trailer stands out from the other culinary competition. “The advantage is that I’m protected from the weather,” Gould said. “And my take down and set up is easier. It’s a lot more work for [cart or tent owners]. I’m at an advantage because I can pull in, plug in and I’m ready to go.”

TORONTO – Shares of BlackBerry maker Research In Motion plunged nearly 30 percent Friday after the company posted a loss and warned of future losses despite releasing its make-or-break new smartphones this year. RIM also announced that it will stop developing new versions of its slow-selling tablet computer called the Playbook. Analysts were looking for insight into how phones running RIM’s new Blackberry 10 operating system are selling. It wasn’t good. RIM said it sold 6.8 million phones overall versus 7.8 million last year. That includes older models. In wasn’t until well into a conference call with analysts that RIM announced that 2.7 million of the devices sold in the quarter were Blackberry 10 models. RIM’s Blackberry 10 operating system is critical to the company’s comeback. New phones running the BlackBerry 10 software began selling around the world this year. The BlackBerry Z10, a touchscreen model and the Q10, which sports a keyboard, have received positive reviews, but there was a delay in getting them to market in the U.S. The first quarter, however, included a substantial period of sales of the Z10 phone in the U.S. It didn’t include sales numbers for the Q10 in the U.S. The Q10 just went on sale in the U.S. earlier this month. Shares of Research in Motion Ltd. dropped $4.02, or 28 percent, to $10.46 in trading Friday. The Canadian company said it lost $84 million, or 16 cents a share, in the three months ended June 1 on revenue of $3.1 billion. It lost $518 million, or 99 cents per share, on revenue of $2.8 billion a year ago. Analysts expected RIM to earn 5 cents a share on revenue of $3.37 billion.

BofA executive: Small business is on the comeback By JOYCE M. ROSENBERG AP Business Writer NEW YORK – Robb Hilson’s job as head of small business banking at Bank of America is to convince small business owners that the bank wants to do business with them. That’s not easy when small businesses have consistently said in surveys that they find it hard to get loans from banks, and when banks have become more cautious about lending to small companies following the recession. But in the 18 months Hilson has been on the job at the nation’s second-largest bank it has had

some success with its 3.2 million small business customers. Last year, Bank of America made $8.7 billion in new loans to small businesses, up 28 percent from 2011. “I feel really good about the momentum. There’s obviously more work to do, but we’ve made a lot of progress,” Hilson says. Hilson, 54, took the job as small business executive in November 2011 soon after Bank of America started placing 1,000 bankers in cities and communities around the country to serve small companies. Bank of America and other big banks be-

gan bolstering their small business outreach after they were criticized by company owners and lawmakers for stringent lending standards that prevented many companies from getting loans. Bank of America was also one of the banks that pledged to the Small Business Administration that it would increase its loans to small business. Hilson previously served larger companies during more than two decades at the bank. This job is very different from anything he has done before.

We’re making it through the rain

Consumer confidence stays near 6-year high The Associated Press WASHINGTON – A measure of U.S. consumer confidence stayed near a six-year high in June as higher home prices boosted household wealth. The survey shows Americans remain upbeat about the economy, despite wild gyrations in the stock market. The University of Michigan said Friday that its final reading of consumer sentiment in June was 84.1. That’s an improvement from a preliminary reading of 82.7 issued on June 14. And it is just slightly below May’s final reading of 84.5, which was the highest since July 2007. Rising household wealth was the main reason consumers stayed optimistic. Households with income above $75,000, those more likely to own homes and stocks, reported the biggest gain. Consumers’ confidence is closely watched because their spending accounts for 70 percent of economic growth. The University of Michigan polls roughly 500 people throughout the month and issues two readings. The slight improvement from the preliminary survey suggests consumers were unfazed by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s June 19 comments about the Fed’s bond purchases. Bernanke said the Fed could start to slow its bond buying by the end of the year and end it next year, if the economy continues to strengthen. The bond purchases have kept long-term interest rates low. Stocks fell sharply in the days after Bernanke’s comments and interest rates jumped. The average rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage surged this week to a twoyear high of 4.46 percent. That’s up from 3.93 percent last week and a full point higher than a month ago.

“I made it through the rain, I kept my world protected. I made it through the rain, I kept my point of view. I made it through the rain, and found myself respected, by the others who got rained on, too – and made it through.” This verse from Barry Manilow’s song “I Made It Through The Rain” should be the new anthem for all of us who cautiously, but optimistically, are beginning to see the light again. You know who you are. The small business owner who worked so hard to build a respectable business he could call his own and slowly found himself scared, entertaining the thoughts of closing the doors for good. The mother and father who have spent countless nights staring up at the ceiling trying to balance in their minds the importance of owning and keeping their home. The hardworking employee who has had to re-program her brain to strive for a job, any job, instead of that perfect job she used to dream of. All of you deserve to be respected. A wise man once said, “Managing

money is easy – but it takes skill to manage without it.” Hearing more and more business owners talk about the good they are experiencing is becoming more prevalent. Their stories might be told with details of hardship and sacrifice, but nonetheless, the positive stories are becoming more the norm. We find ourselves appreciative of the sacrifice and we have a newfound respect for them. So whether you have hung on and feel you’ll make it through the rain, or are starting over, remember there are others who got rained on, too, and made it through – and so will you. *** Wonder Lake’s Fourth of July festivities kick off Thursday with the Fourth of July Parade at 1:30 p.m. The 2013 grand parade marshals are brothers Ken and Jerry Graff of

continues to slowly but surely get better. We saw small business owners doing a great job of rightsizing their businesses when sales dropped off so dramatically in 2008 and 2009, and they’ve come back. Surveys have told us that despite all the challenges and the recession that they endured, very few of them have second thoughts about getting into business for themselves. They are very confident and optimistic about their own capabilities, less so about things that they don’t have as much control over. Q. What will it take for small business owners to be more confident? A. You probably see a little more confidence today than what you saw in November or even last May. I think there were things leading up to the election and all that (that contributed to some pessimism). I think they’re dealing with this new reality of sluggish growth, very low interest rates and not taking as much risk as they were in 2005. What is it going to take to go back to 2005? I don’t know if we’re going to see that, maybe ever. Certainly not in the near term. I think we’ll see more optimism than what we’ve seen

• COMEBACK Continued from page E1 “It’s a bigger challenge because we’re building a business,” Hilson says. “It’s a different conversation with small business owners. So many of these folks are wearing a bunch of hats. It’s just a different environment than meeting with the CEO.” Hilson’s role puts him in a position to hear about, and gain understanding, of the problems small business owners face. He recently spoke with The Associated Press about his work and small businesses. Here are excerpts, edited for brevity and clarity: Q. How do you size up the state of small business today? A. This most recent downturn by almost any account, if not all accounts, was the steepest, the most dramatic, severe, however you want to characterize it, since the Great Depression. I think it’s also fair to say that small businesses relative to other businesses were particularly hard hit. I think it really speaks to the remarkable resilience of American small business owners that they have come back as far as they have. The economy isn’t perfect, but it

today. In our survey, we did a subset around the millennials (people age 18-34). The numbers were off the chart versus any other age groups we looked at. They were very optimistic, more likely to hire, more optimistic about where the economy is going and prospects for the near term. As that group becomes a bigger part of the small business owner population, maybe you’ll see some lift there as well. Q. What results are you seeing from the 1,000 bankers you’ve placed around the country? A. We have a lot of nice charts with impressive trend lines. Let’s talk business lending. I think it’s safe to say that small business owners, their health continues to improve, so balance sheets and cash flows are getting stronger, interest rates are at an all-time low. So it’s a good environment to borrow in. The economy, while not robust, continues to grow. Translated, that equals greater loan demand, and our bankers have a lot to do with that. We’re excited that we were up 28 percent in new loan originations in 2012 over 2011. And through the first four months of this year, we’re ahead of that pace.

The Kids Zone next to the chamber office, 7602 Hancock Drive, will feature face painting, a dunk tank, obstacle course, photo booth, duck pond and fun, colorful balloons compliments of Dr. Gregory Sierminski, DDS. After having fun at the Kids Zone, walk down to the lake and tour the McHenry County Historical Society’s history bus, and the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary’s boats. Then cross the street and enjoy pizza from Paulee’s Pizza, funnel cakes, ice cream, and gourmet coffee cakes and goodies.

I feel really good about how we’re delivering credit. But we know we can do more. We know that the bankers are focused on credit but they’re also focusing on delivering all of our capabilities, not just meeting the needs of the business. They’re also working with other experts, pairing up with financial solutions advisers who will work with small businesses on the personal side – investing solutions, preparing small business owners for retirement or for taking care of their children’s education. Q. But small business owners are known for plowing every penny they can into their companies. How do you convince them that their personal finances should be more of a priority? A. I think part of it is our enlightening small business owners about all that we can do for them. They may just be focused on their business, but we will lead a conversation that will provoke them to think about, are they addressing their kids’ college education? Or are they doing some things that would benefit their employees? Are they doing some things that would help them prepare for retirement? Through our Merrill

Lynch platform, our financial services associates were able to introduce some expertise that we weren’t having before we deployed this model. We’re taking a more holistic view, not just the business piece of it, but the personal side as well. Q. What do you feel have been your biggest accomplishments as head of small business at Bank of America? A. I feel really good about how we have pulled together this organization. We’ve got 3.2 million customers that were up, until 18 months ago, embedded in different parts of this company that we call Bank of America. We’re more thoughtfully organized around them, from a sales perspective, product standpoint and from a service capability. There’s obviously more work to do, but we’ve made a lot of progress in the 18 months. A majority of the bankers’ time is spent working with existing clients that we haven’t had much of a relationship with or we have a relationship and we want to do more with them. While we love new relationships, the biggest and best opportunity for us today is to do more with what we have.

Matt Drudge, creator of the Drudge Report, said, “The Internet feeds off the main press, and the main press feeds off the Internet. They’re working in tandem.” That sounds like good defenders, who work in tandem to defeat declarer. The contract is three no-trump. West leads fourthhighest from his longest and strongest, the diamond four. How should East and West card after that? South starts with seven top tricks: two spades and ive clubs. And since there are three winners available from hearts, things look promising for him. However, with diamonds 5-3, not 4-4, the defenders can succeed. Suppose South plays low from the board at trick one. After East wins with his queen, he must return the diamond seven, the higher of two remaining cards. South should now play his jack, the higher of touching honors from the closed hand. But West should not be fooled. He should know that if East had begun with Q-10-7-2 of diamonds, he would have led back the two, low from a remaining tripleton. So West,

since he has no entry, should duck this trick, playing his three and keeping communication with his partner. South wins on the board and calls for a heart, but East should grab the trick with his ace and lead his last diamond, giving his side one heart and four diamonds. Even if South wins with dummy’s diamond king at trick one and calls for the heart jack, trying to look like someone planning a inesse, East should not be fooled. He should win with his ace, cash the diamond queen, and play his third diamond.

TODAY - In the year ahead, you are likely to have some wonderful opportunities to assert yourself. Don’t allow yourself to stand timidly on the sidelines, waiting for someone to toss you a few bones. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You should be able to weather any financial problems if you’re able to manage your resources prudently. Take care not to buy anything you don’t need, or you’ll go broke very quickly. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You’re inclined to be too assertive in your demands, so it’s important to use moderation in your tactics. Harshness will be counterproductive. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Organize your time by delegating certain assignments that you’re unable to handle on your own. The more efficient the assistance you can get, the better. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- This is one of those days when you’re likely to fare better doing business with total strangers than you will with your regular sources. Broaden your horizons. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- It’s important that you manage things effectively, or you could end up losing ground. When you make any gains, be sure to consolidate your accomplishments. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It would smart to walk away from potential complications that could quickly become insurmountable. Solutions are likely to be found through those who oppose you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Be protective of your position, especially when it comes to an important joint endeavor. If there is any trouble, it could be every person for him- or herself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- To negotiate an effective agreement, there must be parity between parties. It won’t stand the test of time if it’s a good deal for you but not for anyone else. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Don’t delegate important tasks to someone who might not be able to perform up to your expectations. Take the long view, and do things right. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- In hopes of making a good impression, you could be more generous than you should or need be. It’s plain foolish to think that you can buy your way to popularity. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Domestic issues and demands could be much heavier than you’re prepared to handle. Even if you do more than is expected, you’re not likely to satisfy everyone. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It’s best that you don’t discuss your plans before you have a chance to implement them. If you can’t live up to your claims, you’ll end up feeling like a failure.

Stocks slip, ending 7 months of gains in S&P

Roxanne Johnson, general manger of Scoops Dairy and Dogs


NEW YORK – Stocks ended mostly lower on Wall Street as the market closed out a turbulent month. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 114 points, or 0.8 percent, to close at 14,909 Friday. The Standard & Poor’s 500 fell six points, or 0.4 percent, to 1,606. The Nasdaq composite edged up a point to 3,403. The S&P 500 had its first monthly loss since October. It still had its best first half of a year since 1998. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.49 percent from 2.47 percent. Rising and falling stocks were evenly matched on the New York Stock Exchange. Volume was heavier than usual at 4.4 billion shares.

Customers sit down with their food from Scoops Dairy and Dogs (right) during the Bull Valley Renaissance Faire.

Mobile meals Food trucks find niche in McHenry County By JIM DALLKE WOODSTOCK – Any parent of an athlete will tell you finding time for dinner during a busy sports week is nearly impossible. After traveling from practice, to game, to practice, to weekend tournaments, forget about putting a homecooked meal on the table. That’s where Scoops Dairy and Dogs food truck comes in. Scoops is Woodstock’s only food truck that cooks meals on site – and it’s one of the only such establishments in the entire county. In May Scoops began serving fresh Chicago-style hot dogs, chili dogs, Italian beef and Italian sausage out of a trailer it purchased in April. The trailer gives General Manager Roxanne Johnson the ability to hook up to her truck and find her customers, rather than the other way around. “Business has been pretty good,” said Johnson, who also has operated the brick-and-mortar version of Scoops for the past three years. “Once people found out we were here, they’ve started requesting us.” The food truck has allowed Scoops to expand its customer base, and it plans to serve at the upcoming county fair and other summer festivals. But the inspiration for Scoops has always been to help busy families going to and from baseball games, Johnson said. “We wanted to support the local sports teams,” she said. “We donate a portion back to Woodstock Little League … Parents have been very good to us.” Recently, the popularity of food trucks has soared in cities like Chicago. The business lunch crowd in the Loop has flocked to the brick-andmortar alternative, but food truck success hasn’t quite made it to the northwest suburbs. “I think some of it has to do with location,” said Pam Cumpata, president of the McHenry County Economic Development Corp. “In Chicago

Roxanne Johnson (left) and Rikki Anderson stand inside Scoops Dairy and Dogs. you have a volume. You’re walking out for lunch and you want to grab something to eat. We don’t have the dense population here.” With less foot traffic, location is key for McHenry County food trucks, according to Mary Jo Gould, owner of MJ’s Coffee Bar in McHenry. “I’m not going after the business

person,” Gould said. “I’m going to wherever there’s going to be a large amount of people.” MJ’s Coffee Bar, which operates in a trailer similar to Scoops, opened in 2004 and sells primarily at area festivals. Along with coffee and sweets, MJ’s specializes in “wild dogs,” which are hot dogs made from buffalo, elk, and wild boar. “We wanted something that would set us apart from the other vendors,” she said. “People were intrigued, but at first they didn’t know what do with them. I told people to take three, divvy them out to their friends, and let me know what they thought. People had a blast with them, and they took off.” Gould said from July to October MJ’s Coffee Bar is booked solid, serving at festivals and fall football games, and her trailer stands out from the other culinary competition. “The advantage is that I’m protected from the weather,” Gould said. “And my take down and set up is easier. It’s a lot more work for [cart or tent owners]. I’m at an advantage because I can pull in, plug in and I’m ready to go.”

TORONTO – Shares of BlackBerry maker Research In Motion plunged nearly 30 percent Friday after the company posted a loss and warned of future losses despite releasing its make-or-break new smartphones this year. RIM also announced that it will stop developing new versions of its slow-selling tablet computer called the Playbook. Analysts were looking for insight into how phones running RIM’s new Blackberry 10 operating system are selling. It wasn’t good. RIM said it sold 6.8 million phones overall versus 7.8 million last year. That includes older models. In wasn’t until well into a conference call with analysts that RIM announced that 2.7 million of the devices sold in the quarter were Blackberry 10 models. RIM’s Blackberry 10 operating system is critical to the company’s comeback. New phones running the BlackBerry 10 software began selling around the world this year. The BlackBerry Z10, a touchscreen model and the Q10, which sports a keyboard, have received positive reviews, but there was a delay in getting them to market in the U.S. The first quarter, however, included a substantial period of sales of the Z10 phone in the U.S. It didn’t include sales numbers for the Q10 in the U.S. The Q10 just went on sale in the U.S. earlier this month. Shares of Research in Motion Ltd. dropped $4.02, or 28 percent, to $10.46 in trading Friday. The Canadian company said it lost $84 million, or 16 cents a share, in the three months ended June 1 on revenue of $3.1 billion. It lost $518 million, or 99 cents per share, on revenue of $2.8 billion a year ago. Analysts expected RIM to earn 5 cents a share on revenue of $3.37 billion.

BofA executive: Small business is on the comeback By JOYCE M. ROSENBERG AP Business Writer NEW YORK – Robb Hilson’s job as head of small business banking at Bank of America is to convince small business owners that the bank wants to do business with them. That’s not easy when small businesses have consistently said in surveys that they find it hard to get loans from banks, and when banks have become more cautious about lending to small companies following the recession. But in the 18 months Hilson has been on the job at the nation’s second-largest bank it has had

some success with its 3.2 million small business customers. Last year, Bank of America made $8.7 billion in new loans to small businesses, up 28 percent from 2011. “I feel really good about the momentum. There’s obviously more work to do, but we’ve made a lot of progress,” Hilson says. Hilson, 54, took the job as small business executive in November 2011 soon after Bank of America started placing 1,000 bankers in cities and communities around the country to serve small companies. Bank of America and other big banks be-

gan bolstering their small business outreach after they were criticized by company owners and lawmakers for stringent lending standards that prevented many companies from getting loans. Bank of America was also one of the banks that pledged to the Small Business Administration that it would increase its loans to small business. Hilson previously served larger companies during more than two decades at the bank. This job is very different from anything he has done before.
