$24M library expansion ‘done deal’ Official: Grant contract for DeKalb building to be final this week By DAVID THOMAS email@example.com DeKALB – The DeKalb Public Library’s $24 million expansion and renovation plan will take an important final step toward becoming reality this week, officials say. A spokesman with the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office – which oversees the Illinois State Library – said they will have finalized the
grant contract with the DeKalb library by the end of this week. “I think it’s safe to say that this is a done deal,” said spokesman Henry Haupt. The finalization marks the end of a six-year saga, as library officials sought a way to expand their offerings beyond their cramped space in the Haish Memorial Library, an 80-year-old landmark building at 309 Oak St.
DeKalb Library Board President Clark Neher gives a toast to guests at a party thrown by him and his wife Saturday in their DeKalb home. The party celebrated the end of the fiscal year and the grant that is allowing them to move forward with a major expansion to the library.
With the contract finalized, library officials will be able to receive the $11.6 million state construction grant in installments as long as they begin construction within 140 days – or by mid-November. In order to secure the grant, the library had to muster a $12.2 million local match, most of which will come from public funds.

Illinois’ writing test back, but without funding By KERRY LESTER The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – After a two-year reprieve, Illinois high school juniors will be tested on their writing skills again next spring during state standardized tests. Yet lawmakers did not allot an extra $2.5 million to pay for the exams across the state, raising hackles among critics of the legislative budget process after Democrats cel-
ebrated not having to cut education funding for the first time in four years. State education officials say they now are hunting for a way to pay for the tests, possibly by seeking an extra appropriation from lawmakers. Advocates of restoring the writing test say the move is in anticipation of major state education reforms that stress critical thinking more heavily. Educators fear that some Illinois schools dropped an
emphasis on writing skills when the yearly assessments were halted in 2011. The move reflects a “concern that writing was not being taken as seriously as it should be,” said state Sen. Dan Kotowski, a Democrat who helped negotiate the education budget. “This is determined to be something that has a strong impact on student performance in the classroom – a predictor of success.” But Republican lawmakers say
it illustrates a problem with the state’s approach to budgeting, and how Democrats seek to spend money the state doesn’t have. In keeping education funding even this year, lawmakers took advantage of a socalled “April Surprise,” a windfall of one-time tax revenues. But a DeKalb County lawmaker says the Democrats went too far in adding back programs the state can’t afford.

DeKALB – DeKalb City Council members will consider finalizing the 2 percent pay raises for all nonunion city employees at their Monday night meeting. In addition, Mayor John Rey, and Aldermen David Jacobson and Monica O’Leary, of the 1st and 7th Wards, respectively, have asked that council members revisit the pay increase that was denied to Frieders Law LLC. The three council members voted down City Attorney Dean Frieders’ pay increase at their June 24 meeting. If the pay increase is approved by the council, the city will pay Frieders Law $17,340 a month – or $208,080 a year. Frieders’ contract was renewed at their previous meeting without the increase. For his part, Rey said in a previous interview that he regretted voting against the pay increase. “If you look at the deliverables and things Dean has brought in the city ... we’re sending the wrong message if we’re approving a contract with no increase at all,” Rey said. Police Chief Gene Lowery described his experience with Frieders as positive, noting how he has streamlined certain processes and led initiatives to update certain ordinances. “The return on investment for Dean Frieders is many times what the cost of his salary is,” Lowery said. The City Council’s last meeting saw a significant divide between aldermen who say the city is on relatively sound financial footing, and others who say it’s about to fall into fiscal disaster. In addition to lengthy debates about the pay increases for the attorney and the city staff, the council also debated the pay increase and merits of Roger Hopkins, the city’s economic development consultant. The council approved Hopkins’ contract and pay increase with a total cost of $77,112 a year. Even with the pay increase, officials said the city is saving money through the outsourced services. Rudy Espiritu, acting city manager, said the city was paying up to $450,000 a year for an in-house legal department, while a full-time economic development director would cost up to $135,000 a year. All of the pay increases were budgeted for in the city’s fiscal 2014 budget, which began Monday. With no items to consider in their Committee of the Whole, the City Council will begin Monday’s meeting at 6 p.m. at the DeKalb Municipal Building, 200 S. Fourth St.

Tinker a bit, you will learn more It didn’t get much media attention, but a couple weeks ago at Northern Illinois University, about 45 kids in first through sixth grade helped solve significant global problems. Also, they created awesome rubber duck launchers from stuff around their parents’ houses. It was all part of Camp Invention, sponsored by NIU’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Outreach Program. The goal: Teach in such a way that it felt like fun. The kids got to mess with a bunch of stuff to see what happened. For example, campers investigated problems such as congested traffic in Paris, diminishing living space in Singapore, and converting marine debris into power in Honduras. Our son’s group worked on the marine debris problem. They designed a ship that gulped up garbage the way fish scoop up food. Campers invented a “glacier digger” and discovered how challenging it is to bore through ice and examine ice samples. They experimented with acids and bases. They studied sandstorms, hurricanes and tsunamis. Along the way, they kept a “design journal” of notes and drawings. They even filed a mock patent application for the “duck-chucking” devices. How successful was camp? One, our son asked if he could go again next year on the first day, and two, I keep asking, “Why don’t they have stuff like
THE FINE LINE Jason Akst this for grownups?” In a way, they do. Some forward-thinking companies allow time for employees to tinker and work on pet projects. Doing so improves morale, productivity and, every once in a while, births an awesome invention. But for most of us, it’s work, work, work. No time to explore and see what happens. And increasingly for students, it’s task, task, task. Not enough hands-on learning. Why is hands-on learning so important? Because according to some experts, the lack of hands-on learning is a primary cause of student disengagement. Between kindergarten and high school graduation, students become more disconnected from what they’re supposed to be learning. This happens because classroom material becomes abstract, less tied to actual life and more rote. With respect to STEM, hands-on learning is crucial. One Purdue University study of eighth-graders found that students (including those for whom English is a second language) showed significantly better understanding of how humans affect water and water quality by designing a water
purification device, compared with traditional methods of study. They also scored higher on tests. Cindy Warren-James, a retired DeKalb elementary school teacher who directed this year’s camp, underscored the importance of learning by doing. “What we saw at camp is that this [play and hands-on learning] is how the brain works,” she said. “Little by little, you get to the point of meeting the challenge. It takes tons of time and the right instructional setting. Kids need to ... get the experience before they get the background.” The problem is time. School systems, under increasing pressure to cram more and more content into a finite school day (and with diminishing resources) obsess about timelines and assessments. Master this task, take the test, move on. By contrast, the value of play and hands-on learning, Warren-James said, is that it makes the learning real. However, she said, “all of that takes time, and unless you’re willing to put in that time, you might not get the long-term benefits.” She urged parents to buy small hobby motors, get parts from stuff around the house, and just tinker. Sounds good to me.

8 TODAY’S TALKER
By NICK DIVITO
ATLANTA – When the U.S. Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights act last week, it handed Republicans tough questions with no easy answers over how, and where, to attract voters even GOP leaders say the party needs to stay nationally competitive. The decision caught Republicans between newfound state autonomy that conservatives covet and the law’s popularity among minority, young and poor voters who tend to align with Democrats. It’s those voters that Republicans are eyeing to expand and invigorate the GOP’s core of older, white Americans. National GOP Chairman Reince Priebus began that effort well before the court’s decision by promising, among other initiatives, to hire nonwhite party activists to engage direct-

Joey Chestnut, seven-time winner of the Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating contest, is carried to the competition stage through a crowd of fans Thursday at Coney Island in the Brooklyn borough of New York. has now bested his former rival, Takeru Kobayashi, who won six times. Kobayashi competed in a different eating contest Thursday. Thomas went toe-to-toe with Juliet Lee for the $5,000 women’s prize. Thomas finished with 36 and three-quarters
dogs; Lee ate 36. Thomas said the challenge of shoveling down dozens of franks is “more mental than physical.” “I have to fight with myself, so I’m going to try to really focus,” said Thomas, of Alexandria, Va., where she manages a fast-food restaurant.

Joey Chestnut wins 7th hot dog eating contest NEW YORK – Joey Chestnut downed 69 franks and devoured his own record in the men’s Fourth of July hot dog eating contest while Sonya Thomas defended her title in the women’s competition. The San Jose, Calif., man known as Jaws ate one more wiener than his previous record to capture the mustard-yellow champion’s belt. He said afterward that he was motivated by the prestige, not the $10,000 prize money. “I’d do this for nothing,” he said. Thomas, a 100-pound dynamo known as the “Black Widow” of competitive eating, wolfed down nearly 37 wieners to narrowly eke out her own victory. Chestnut, 29, is a seven-time winner who set the old record – 68 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes – in 2009 and tied it last year. Thomas, 45, powered through 45 dogs to take the women’s championship last year and also won in 2011, the first year women competed separately Chestnut, who weighs 210 pounds, had said his pace was uneven in the past, but “this year I’m trying to eat a little more gracefully, conserve my energy.” Second-place finisher was Matt Stonie, who chomped down 51 hot dogs. With this year’s victory, Chestnut

ly with black and Latino voters. Yet state and national Republicans reacted to the Voting Rights Act decision with a flurry of activity and comments that may not fit neatly into the national party’s vision. Congressional leaders must decide whether to try to rewrite the provision the court struck, but it’s not clear how such an effort would fare in the Democratic-led Senate and the GOP-controlled House. And at the state level, elected Republicans are enacting tighter voting restrictions that Democrats blast as harmful to their traditional base of supporters and groups the Republicans say they want to attract. States like North Carolina and Virginia provide apt examples of the potential fallout. An influx of non-whites have turned those Republican strongholds into battlegrounds in the last two presidential elections, and minority voters
helped President Barack Obama win both states in 2008 and Virginia again in 2012. Nationally, Republican Mitt Romney lost among African-Americans by about 85 percentage points and Latinos by about 44 percentage points, margins that virtually ensure a Democratic victory. Yet presidential math doesn’t necessarily motivate Republicans who control statehouses and congressional districts in states most affected by the Voting Rights Act. Core GOP supporters in the region react favorably to voter identification laws and broad-based critiques of federal authority. Against that backdrop, Southern Republicans celebrated Chief Justice John Roberts’ opinion that effectively frees all or parts of 15 states with a history of racial discrimination from having to get advanced federal approval for any election procedure.

Three people who ordered food at a Taco Bell drive-thru in western Michigan got something more valuable: $3,600 in cash. A Taco Bell employee mistakenly passed the cash to the trio instead of their food Saturday. The money was returned a short time later. Kennidi Rue told WZZM-TV and MLive.com that she and two friends thought about keeping the money but decided they would feel guilty if they didn't return it. Grand Rapids police Capt.

Puppets attract at Kirkland fest Pedal pull also draws crowd
The ASSOCIATED PRESS
By FELIX SARVER firstname.lastname@example.org KIRKLAND – The last thing an entertainer like Sandi Sylver wanted to do was follow an act that featured exotic animals. So she pulled out an animal of her own who wore a dress and had pink hair. The animal’s name was Cutie Pie Crocodile, a fashion diva who sings poems about strange visits to the dentist. Cutie Pie Crocodile was one of Sylver’s many puppets who sang and told stories at the Kirkland Fourth of July festival. “I’m more of a storyteller with my puppets,” Sylver said. Sylver, who started her ventriloquism career at 55, showed the gathering crowd of children at the stage the rest of her puppet family. There was Mrs. Ida Know-Why, a lady who enjoyed eating “Kentucky Fried arachnids,” and Shari Carey. Through Carey, Sylver gave the audience a small lesson on ventriloquism. Sylver’s show was among many attractions at Kirkland’s 65th Fourth of July festival. The festival is sponsored by the Kirkland Lions Club, a group that runs events throughout the year and donates the proceeds to charity. The club was formed more than 65 years ago when several residents came together to raise funds for a person suffering from cancer, said Jeff Anderberg, Kirkland Lions Club’s treasurer. Anderberg said the club donates between $13,000 and $20,000 annually to local food pantries, charities and youth

groups. The Fourth of July festival is the main event of the year for the club, and one that involves extensive planning. “We start thinking about what we’re doing next year
almost the next day,” Anderberg said. While many carnival rides and attractions were fun for children, one in particular tested their strength. The Kirkland Lions Club Pedal
Pull contest had children in five age divisions competing to pull weight across 50 feet of road using a small, pedaled tractor. Five-year-old Chase Trautvetter was the first-place winner of his age division. He managed to pull the weight at least 29 feet. It was his first time competing, said DeKalb resident Sherry Trautvetter, his mother. “He’s very competitive, so he was very excited to win,” Sherry Trautvetter said. The festival has become one of the most well-known aspects of Kirkland and a point of pride, Anderberg said. Even people he’s met in Montana have heard of the festival. “It shows how even when you’re 2,000 miles away from home, there will be someone who says they’ve been to Kirkland for the Fourth of July,” Anderberg said.
CHICAGO – Two Illinois women are seeking a rare type of organ transplant, but they have learned that the Illinois Medicaid program considers the surgery experimental and won’t pay for it. The Illinois decision is based on a recommendation from an ethics panel convened to study the procedure, which involves transplanting the intestine and other organs, Crain’s Chicago Business reported. No Illinois hospitals perform the surgery, which is called a multi-visceral transplant. In February, Indiana University Health lobbied Illinois Medicaid to cover the transplants for Brandy Whitfield, 32, of Lombard and Barbara Sensney, 67, of Olney. Medicaid is a government health program for poor and disabled patients. Whitfield said she needs a new small intestine and stomach after a failed surgery to remove a benign tumor. Sensney said she needs a new liver, pancreas and intestine because of cirrhosis and liver cancer. “I’m kind of in a fog right now,” Sensney said after learning the state’s decision. “I knew in my heart all along they weren’t going to do it, but you always hope.” The surgeries were expected to cost more than $1 million each. IU Health’s University Hospital in Indianapolis has performed 38 of the operations in four years. The Illinois Medicaid program covers 2.8 million people with a budget of $17.8
4TH OF JULY
billion. One year ago, Gov. Pat Quinn signed a package of $2.7 billion in cuts and tax increases he said was needed to save the state’s bloated program from collapse. Illinois Medicaid authorizes the multi-visceral transplant surgery for children, but until now didn’t have a policy about whether the procedure would be covered for adults. A six-member ethics committee met May 17 to study the situation. It recommended unanimously that Illinois Medicaid should not approve such requests for adults. The ethics committee noted that the Indiana hospital’s transplant program and its surgeons are “reputable and qualified,” but “they have not been able to provide definitive and specific outcome data measuring post-op quality of life and lifespan in each of those 38 patients.” Julie Hamos, director of the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services, accepted the recommendation. The new Illinois policy on the transplant states: “There is no peer-reviewed and published literature that demonstrates the effectiveness and safety of this procedure and, thus, it is experimental in nature.” Fewer than a dozen hospitals across the country perform the most of the surgeries, according to transplant surgeons and the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network. “I just want to get back to normal,” Whitfield said. “I want to be able to interact with my child without being in constant pain.”

What now with health care law The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Nothing’s ever easy with President Barack Obama’s health care law. The latest hitch gives employers an additional year before they must offer medical coverage to their workers or pay a fine. What does the delay mean for workers? And struggling businesses? And is it a significant setback for a law already beset by court challenges, repeal votes and a rush of deadlines for making health insurance available to nearly all Americans next year? A few questions and answers:

Statue of Liberty reopens on 4th By COLLEEN LONG The Associated Press NEW YORK – The Statue of Liberty reopened on the Fourth of July, eight months after Superstorm Sandy shuttered the national symbol of freedom, as Americans around the country celebrated with fireworks and parades and President Barack Obama urged citizens to live up to the words of the Declaration of Independence. Hundreds lined up Thursday to be among the first to board boats destined for Lady Liberty, including New Yorker Heather Leykam and her family. “This, to us, Liberty Island, is really about a rebirth,” said Leykam, whose mother’s home was destroyed during the storm. “It is a sense of renewal for the city and the country. We wouldn’t have missed it for the world.” Nationwide, Boston prepared to host its first large gathering since the marathon
bombing that killed three and injured hundreds, and Philadelphia, Washington and New Orleans geared up for large holiday concerts. A Civil War reenactment commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg drew as many as 40,000 people to Pennsylvania. In Arizona, sober tributes were planned for 19 firefighters who died this week battling a blaze near Yarnell. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, speaking at the reopening of the Statue of Liberty, choked up as she told the crowd she was wearing a purple ribbon in memory of the fallen firefighters. “Nineteen firefighters lost their lives in the line of duty, and we as a nation stand together,” she said through tears. The island was decorated with star-spangled bunting, but portions remain blocked off with large construction equipment, and the main ferry dock was boarded up.
Repairs to brick walkways and docks were ongoing. But much of the work has been completed since Sandy swamped the 12-acre island in New York Harbor, and visitors were impressed. “It’s stunning, it’s beautiful,” said Elizabeth Bertero, 46, of California’s Sonoma County. “They did a great job rebuilding. You don’t really notice that anything happened.” The statue itself was unharmed, but the land took a beating. Railings broke, docks and paving stones were torn up and buildings were flooded. The storm destroyed electrical systems, sewage pumps and boilers. Hundreds of National Park Service workers from as far away as California and Alaska spent weeks cleaning mud and debris. “It is one of the most enduring icons of America, and we pulled it off – it’s open today,” National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis
said. “Welcome.” The statue was open for a single day last year – Oct. 28, the day before Sandy struck. It had been closed the previous year for security upgrades. Neighboring Ellis Island remains closed and there has been no reopening date set. Elsewhere in New York, throngs of revelers packed Brooklyn’s Coney Island to see competitive eating champ Joey Chestnut scarf down 69 hot dogs to break a world record and win the title for a seventh year at the 98th annual Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest. Sonya Thomas defended her title with nearly 37 dogs. In his weekly radio address from Washington, Obama urged Americans to work to secure liberty and opportunity for their own children and future generations. The first family was to host U.S. servicemen and women at the White House for a cookout.
Veterans Affairs Department reduce its backlog of disability claims. The Illinois Republican visited the VA Hospital in Hines on Wednesday and later met with his Veterans Advisory Board. Kirk says the VA’s Chicago Regional Office is the fourth most backlogged processing center in the nation. More than 82 percent of its 20,000 claims have been pending for more than 125 days.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services administered an oath Wednesday to a group of people representing 32 countries. The ceremony was part of Chicago’s New Americans Initiative, a city effort to help eligible immigrants become citizens. Emanuel said it was fitting to welcome new citizens on the day before July 4, when the nation celebrates its independence.
members get jobs as police officers, emergency medical technicians and commercial vehicle drivers. Quinn signed the bills Thursday before marching in the July Fourth parade in Arlington Heights. One measure allows service members and veterans who have at least two years of experience operating a military vehicle to bypass the state skills test when applying for a commercial driver’s license. Another eliminates the college degree requirement for veterans who’ve earned certain medals and want to become Illinois State Police officers.

Who else benefits from delay? • Democratic candidates. The employer mandate was set to take effect at the start of a congressional election year, intensifying the focus on one of the Republicans’ favorite campaign issues. Postponing the requirement should mean fewer ads featuring business owners saying they’re drowning under health care mandates. • Maybe Republicans, too. They get new ammunition for their argument that the law is an unworkable “train wreck.” Voters’ complaints and worries about the health law helped the GOP win control of the House in 2010. • Some low-income workers. When the employer mandate does take effect, some smallish companies have threatened to lay off workers or cut back their hours to stay under the 50-employee threshold. There’s debate about how many workers might be harmed by this. • Some job hunters. Once the mandate kicks in, job-seekers may find fewer openings for unskilled workers. That’s because some restaurants and other small companies say the mandate will force them to cut back on staff or freeze hiring. The economy is likely to continue improving, which will help offset the impact by increasing demand for workers.
Who loses? • Uninsured people who already are confused about the
What about me? Most people won’t be affected. The vast majority of Americans already have insurance – even those working at companies that hover around the 50-employee level. A Kaiser Family Foundation study found that 87 percent of companies that employed from 25 to 49 workers last year offered health coverage, and the percentage goes up for bigger businesses. You should NOT be affected by the delay if you already are insured through: • A job at a large company that already offers insurance. • A job at a small company employing fewer than 50 workers, because such companies are exempt from the rules. • Medicaid or Medicare, not affected by the delay. • A private insurance policy, also not affected.
Is this a downward spiral? The delay adds to an appearance of disarray surrounding the law. It comes after other glitches and angry opposition: Lawsuits reaching all the way to the Supreme Court. Protests by religious employers who say covering contraception is against their beliefs. Repeated votes by House Republicans to repeal “Obamacare.” But the postponement doesn’t affect the heart of the law – the requirement that individuals get insurance, and the subsidies to help them pay for it. The Obama administration insists the rest of the law will keep rolling along.
Is the rest of the law on track? Not for everyone. A majority of the neediest people may remain uninsured. Medicaid changes in the health care law designed to help some 15 million low-income people are being rejected by many states with Republican leaders. That amounts to about half the people who were supposed to be helped by the law.

Businesses said they needed more time. Obama administration officials say they listened to businesses that complained they needed to figure out how to comply with complicated new rules written since the plan became law. And the delay buys time for the government, as well, to improve and simplify the rules. The law passed in 2010 required employers with more than 50 employees working 30 or more hours a week to offer them suitable health coverage or pay a fine. What’s changed is the deadline for that requirement, which was to begin in January. The new deadline is Jan. 1, 2015.
law. The law doesn’t change the January 2014 deadline for individuals to get insurance or the tax credits in the law to help them pay for it. But many people don’t understand how the law works or when it takes effect, and the delay for the employer mandate may further muddle the issue for many. • Some workers. Those whose employers might add insurance coverage to avoid the law’s penalties will have to wait a year. But this group is expected to be small. The penalties are designed more to discourage businesses from dropping their existing health plans than to encourage them to start new ones. And these employees can buy their own insurance through the new health care exchanges being set up under the law.

U.S. man in N. Korean prison hopes he’s released By ERIC TALMADGE The Associated Press

Town remembers the 4th, fallen firefighters By HANNAH DREIER The Associated Press PRESCOTT, Ariz. – They remembered the Fourth, but also the 19. At Bistro St. Michael on Whiskey Row in this old West town, 19 candles burned beneath red, white and blue bunting, one for each firefighter killed last weekend battling a wildfire not far from the place they called home. In a quiet neighborhood near the high school, which at least five of them attended, 19 miniature U.S. flags were planted in front yards, each pole tied with the purple ribbon that commemorates fallen firefighters. At the makeshift memorial on the fence that wrapped around the elite Hotshots firefighting team’s headquarters, people left 19 potted plants, 19 pinwheels, 19 handwritten cards, 19 religious candles. On a day meant to ponder the nation’s birth, and those who built and defended it over 237 years, Prescott’s residents had 19 of their neighbors, their friends, their relatives to remember. “I just wanted to thank them and let them know that they’re heroes and that they’re missed,” said Susan Reynolds, who hung a piece of fabric
with an expression of thanks on a string of panels that hung like a prayer flag on the fence. Away from the celebrations, public memorials and the fireworks planned for later Thursday, some of the fallen firefighters’ families were quietly trying to come to terms with their own personal loss. Occasionally, relatives would emerge to speak about the fallen. “There’s no celebration today,” said Laurie McKee, whose 21-year-old nephew, Grant McKee, died in the fire. “We’re doing OK, but it’s still up and down.” McKee’s father and aunt picked up items recovered from his truck on Wednesday night, and were comforted when the fire chief told them that Grant McKee had been part of “the Navy Seals of firefighting,” his aunt said. His family was planning to spend the day at home, visiting with relatives flying in for his funeral. Initial autopsy results released Thursday showed the firefighters died from burns, carbon monoxide poisoning or oxygen deprivation, or a combination of the factors. Their bodies, which are in Phoenix for the autopsies, were expected to be taken 75 miles northwest to Prescott on Sunday.

TOKYO – An American imprisoned in North Korea has told a pro-Pyongyang media outlet that he wants the U.S. to “try harder” to help him gain amnesty from a sentence of 15 years of hard labor for alleged crimes against the government. In what appears to be his first media interview since his November arrest, Kenneth Bae told the Tokyo-based Choson Sinbo in a story published Wednesday that he had hoped to be out by Thursday. It was not only Independence Day but his father’s 70th birthday. He said he still hopes the U.S. government will help him get released quickly. He was sent in May to
what the North calls a “special prison,” and Pyongyang’s decision to allow the interview may have been an attempt to show that he is not being treated harshly. But an analyst said Pyongyang is also trying to use Bae as a bargaining chip to start bilateral talks with the U.S. Bae, 44, of Lynnwood, Washington, was arrested in the northeastern North Korean region of Rason and was interviewed last week at a North Korean prison where he is serving out his sentence. An American of Korean descent, Bae entered the special economic zone as a tour operator but was convicted in late April of plotting to commit “hostile acts” against the North Korean government. Photos and video of Bae
published this week by Choson Sinbo show him with his head shaven and wearing gray overalls bearing the number 103. Choson Sinbo, which caters to Japan’s pro-Pyongyang North Korean community, provided an unusual look at Bae’s life inside his “special education center” cell. It is 12 square meters and has a wash basin, a desk and a television. Bae said he wakes up at 6 every morning. He then does farm work, planting seeds and weeding, until his labor ends at 6 p.m. He gets Sundays and holidays off, he told the paper during a June 26 interview. “People here are very considerate, so I’m not working too hard, but my health is not in the best condition so there
are some difficulties,” Bae said in a Choson Sinbo video shared with CNN and posted to the paper’s Facebook page. It’s likely he gave the interview in the presence of North Korean officials. Many in the U.S. see Bae’s imprisonment as bait with which North Korea hopes to win diplomatic concessions from Washington. North Korea remains locked in a standoff with the U.S. and its allies for continuing to develop nuclear weapons despite U.N. sanctions. It launched a long-range rocket in December and conducted a nuclear test in February. Yoo Ho-yeol, a North Korean studies professor at Korea University in Seoul, said the photos and video of Bae “are purely for propaganda purposes.”

Native flowers had been destroyed along with bushes which had been nesting sites for a variety of birds and had provided cover for ducks, muskrats and frogs. What is left is a spare look which could only be appreciated by a Canada goose (it mimics their native tundra). It is this action by NIU as well as the infamous clear-cutting of the Nature Trail by ComEd that makes me alarmed at the tone of
the Prairie Park column. I am well aware that homeless people sometimes camp out in the park and that the tragic Toni Keller murder has made people reluctant to walk the interior trails. But please hold the bulldozers and chainsaws. It would be a terrible outcome if, in a futile quest for complete security, the natural areas of this beautiful park are destroyed. Kathleen Blair DeKalb
Wendy Davis offers warning sign for Democrats The abortion rights side won the last battle in the abortion wars. It’s overconfident about the next one. Gov. Rick Perry has summoned the Texas Legislature for a second special session to pass legislation regulating abortion. The bill was set to pass at the end of the first special session, but a shouting mob disrupted the state Senate so it couldn’t act. That mob was inspired by a filibuster against the bill led by State Sen. Wendy Davis, who has now become a heroine to social liberals across the country and may run for governor herself. The bill would ban abortion after five months and make abortion clinics follow the same safety standards as ambulatory surgical centers (a requirement several other states have imposed). Supporters of the bill say the standards follow the recommendations of the Philadelphia grand jury that indicted Kermit Gosnell for killing infants at his clinic. (Gosnell was convicted and sentenced in May to life in prison.) Opponents say only five clinics in the state would be left open. When pressed they admit the other clinics could change their practices to comply with the law, but say it would be costly. Davis’s activism illuminates a larger shift in the politics of abortion, and it poses risks that Democrats are underestimating. Her filibuster came just days after the U.S. House passed its own bill, on an almost party-line vote, to ban abortion five months after conception, except in cases of rape or when the mother’s life is threatened. Liberals have been viewing these controversies in light of the 2012 campaign, when two anti-abortion Republicans sank their U.S. Senate campaigns and put their whole party on defense by saying they opposed abortion even in cases of rape, and saying
VIEWS Ramesh Ponnuru it in clumsy ways. Democrats are using every Republican gaffe to call that history to mind, and sometimes taking Republican comments that aren’t gaffes out of context for the same purpose. This strategy might succeed in reducing the popularity of anti-abortion politicians, as liberals hope. Some Republicans are bound to say stupid things, and many take positions out of step with the public. Journalists, who disproportionately favor abortion rights, will find these comments outrageous and newsworthy while largely ignoring the equivalents among Democrats. (In neither 2008 nor 2012 did the mainstream press accurately report President Barack Obama’s record of opposing legal protection for some infants who survive abortion.) But in 2012, most Republicans reacted to the comments opposing abortion in cases of rape by denying that they held such views and then trying to change the subject; their nervousness made them look like they were hiding an extremist agenda. This time, Republicans actually have a response: legislation that highlights how abortion rights Democrats are out of step with the public. Most Americans think abortion should be legal in cases of rape, but they also think it should be illegal in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. The Gallup Organization has never found more than 27 percent of the public supporting legal second-trimester abortion. The last time Republicans fought a national election when specific anti-abortion legislation was at issue was in 2004.
Republicans had passed a popular ban on partial-birth abortion. Most Democrats opposed it, but had a hard time justifying their stance. After losing the election, many Democrats – including their presidential candidate, John Kerry – said the perception that they were extreme on abortion had contributed to their defeat. The country’s views on abortion, as measured in polls, haven’t changed much since 2004. (If anything there has been a slight movement in the anti-abortion direction.) And Republicans once again have specific legislation that doesn’t include their least popular stands and highlights Democratic extremism. Most Democrats haven’t considered the possibility that the politics of the issue have thus moved back in favor of Republicans. One warning sign came when John McCormack, a writer for the conservative Weekly Standard, asked Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi why she condemned Gosnell while also seeking to keep late-term abortions legal. Instead of answering, she sputtered about how the question offended her as a Catholic and a mother. Democrats who come from less uniformly liberal districts will have to do better. Defending late-term abortions is going to be especially hard for Democrats from red states, such as Davis, to sustain politically. Davis won’t keep the Texas bill from passing, and the odds are against her becoming governor. She can still look forward to a consolation prize: a star-studded play about her greatness. Broadway loves defeated Texas liberals.

Abolish food stamps and distribute SNAP budget to other programs By CHARLES LANE The Washington Post Congress is in an uproar over the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps. In the past half-decade, mostly because of the recession, enrollment grew to 21.1 million U.S. households – encompassing one-seventh of the population when you include children and other dependents – at a cost of $78 billion in fiscal 2011, according to the Department of Agriculture. House Republicans want to cut SNAP by at least $20 billion over the next decade, and Democrats want to preserve it pret-
ty much as is. The dispute sent the 2013 farm bill – legislation in which SNAP has traditionally been twinned with subsidies for farmers – down to an unexpected defeat last month. Fortunately, there is a solution. Abolish food stamps, on one condition: Congress would have to distribute the SNAP budget among other programs for the poor, for which many SNAP recipients also qualify. The result would be a safety net as generous as today’s but considerably more efficient and transparent. Supporters hail SNAP as a key income support for the working poor, seniors and the disabled, as well as an “automatic
stabilizer” that bolsters demand during economic downturns and then recedes during recoveries. That’s true – but the government already has programs, and bureaucracies, for each of those groups and policy goals. For example, a third of the seniors living on food stamps also get Supplemental Security Income (SSI). And unlike food stamps, the other programs – SSI, the earned-income tax credit, unemployment insurance – deliver benefits in the form most poor people find most useful: cash. Reallocating the SNAP budget to beef up the rest of the safety net would also eliminate food stamps as a perennial political target.

It’s a message that bears repeating: When people are willing to call the police, they can keep their neighborhoods free of crime. Not everyone is willing to cooperate with police, even to pick up the phone to call 911, and research has found that the more people observe a crime, the less likely any one person is to do something about it, what psychologists refer to as the “bystander effect.” However, when people are willing to contact police to report crimes or even suspicious activity, they can make a difference. A recent example occurred last weekFor the record end, when a Sycamore resident saw what they thought It is within residents’ was someone burglarizing a power to keep their car in their neighborhood. neighborhoods safe if they After making a 911 call, are willing to work with the police were able to arrest police officers whose job two people suspected of burglarizing four vehicles in it is to enforce the law and the neighborhood. protect the public. The onus is not only on residents to communicate with police. In DeKalb, police are making proactive efforts to connect with residents. The police have created a mobile phone app, iWatch DeKalb, that enables people to report suspicious activity or give other tips about possible crimes they observe using a mobile device, or from a desktop computer, which you can do online at http://shawurl.com/nzy. As the quote from Police Chief Gene Lowery says, “If one person can make a difference, imagine what a whole community can do.” People who use iWatch also can remain anonymous. The app is available free at the App Store for Apple and the Play Store for Android. DeKalb police also are taking a more personal approach. The city’s resident officer program has placed Officer Jared Burke in a refurbished home on north 11th Street in DeKalb, where Burke is working to help improve community relations by forging personal connections with his new neighbors. The city spent about $135,000 in tax increment financing funds to buy the house and renovate it from a duplex to a single-family house. Community policing strategies and neighborhood watch programs are nothing new. However, that doesn’t mean they don’t remain effective. It is within residents’ power to keep their neighborhoods safe if they are willing to work with the police officers whose job it is to enforce the law and protect the public.
8 ANOTHER VIEW
Lawmakers too comfortable A lot of readers were angered – and who can blame them? – with the news last month that Illinois legislators would be paid for a one-day special session on pension reform. Each legislator received $111 for the day for food and lodging expenses and the state also paid for the legislator’s mileage. The session resulted in the House and Senate formally disagreeing on pension reform, setting in motion a conference committee of House and Senate members that will work to come up with a solution to the state’s unfunded pension obligation. The special session – which cost taxpayers about $40,000 – will be well worth it if the result is a solution to the $97 billion unfunded pension liability. The payments legislators received for the one-day session are rooted in a problem that is apparent, but will probably never be solved. Illinois legislators make too much money. The base pay for an Illinois legislator is $67,000 a year. Most legislators also receive a stipend for leadership roles in the chamber’s various committees. The legislators also have their own pension plan, which is lucrative. The salary isn’t bad for a full-time job. It’s out of sight when you consider that being a legislator is designed to be a part-time job. Some legislators also work at law firms, in school districts or at other positions. But a lot of legislators are full-time politicians and the salary and benefits allow that to happen. Illinois pays its legislators well. In fact, only California, Pennsylvania, New York and Michigan pay more. Cutting the salaries of legislators – even if that were ever to happen –would not make a huge difference in the state’s budget. But it would more than likely make a huge difference in how legislators act. Most legislators in both the House and Senate are beholden to their party and its leaders for protection from primary opponents and funds if there is a general election opponent. The state’s gerrymandering has placed most legislators in districts where the biggest threat would be from a fellow party member in a primary. The message is pretty clear – toe the party line and you get to keep your job. And since it’s such a lucrative job, it’s worth keeping. The rhetoric of listening to constituents is nice, but when a comfortable income is on the line, party leaders speak a lot louder than voters. For the foreseeable future, we’re stuck with overpaid legislators who are committed to keeping their cushy part-times jobs. In state government, it’s pretty clear that you don’t get what you pay for.

Egypt: Interim president sworn in U.S. approaches
Egypt with caution
The ASSOCIATED PRESS CAIRO – Egypt’s military moved swiftly Thursday against senior figures of the Muslim Brotherhood, targeting the backbone of support for ousted president Mohammed Morsi. In the most dramatic step, authorities arrested the group’s revered leader from an oceanside villa and flew him by helicopter to detention in the capital. As a top judge was sworn in as interim president to replace Morsi, the crackdown poses an immediate test to the new army-backed leadership’s promises to guide Egypt to democracy: The question of how to include the 83-year-old fundamentalist group. That question has long been at the heart of democracy efforts in Egypt. Hosni Mubarak and previous authoritarian regimes banned the group, raising cries even from pro-reform Brotherhood critics that it must be allowed to participate if Egypt was to be free. After Mubarak’s fall, the newly legalized group vaulted to power in elections, with its veteran member Morsi becoming the country’s first freely elected president. Now the group is reeling under a huge backlash from a public that says the Brotherhood and its Islamist allies abused their electoral mandate. The military forced Morsi out Wednesday after millions of Egyptians nationwide turned out in four days of protests demanding he be removed. Furious over what it calls a military coup against democracy, the Brotherhood vowed
The ASSOCIATED PRESS
Egyptian soldiers deploy Thursday near Cairo University, where Muslim Brotherhood supporters have gathered to support ousted president Mohammed Morsi in Cairo. The chief justice of Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court was sworn in Thursday as the nation’s interim president, taking over hours after the military ousted Morsi. Thursday it will not work with the new leadership. It and harder-line Islamist allies called for a wave of protests on Friday, dubbing it the “Friday of Rage,” vowing to escalate if the military does not back down. There are widespread fears of Islamist violence in retaliation for Morsi’s ouster, and already some former militant extremists have vowed to fight. Several Brotherhood officials on Thursday urged their followers to keep their protests peaceful. Thousands of Morsi supporters remained massed in front of a Cairo mosque where they have camped for days, with a line of military armored vehicles across the road nearby keep-
ing watch. We declare our complete rejection of the military coup staged against the elected president and the will of the nation,” the Brotherhood said in a statement, read by the group’s senior cleric Abdel-Rahman el-Barr to the crowd outside the Rabia al-Adawiya Mosque in Cairo. “We refuse to participate in any activities with the usurping authorities,” the statement said, urging Morsi supporters to remain peaceful. The Rabia al-Adawiya protesters planned to march on the Ministry of Defense on Friday. The Brotherhood denounced the crackdown, including the shutdown
Wednesday night of its television channel, Misr25, and three pro-Morsi Islamist stations. The military, it said, is returning Egypt to the practices of “the dark, repressive, dictatorial and corrupt ages.” The army’s removal of Morsi sparked massive celebrations Wednesday night among the crowds of protesters around the country, with fireworks, dancing, and blaring car horns lasting close to dawn. On Thursday, the extent of the Brotherhood reversal was clear. Adly Mansour, the head of the Supreme Constititonal Court, with which Morsi had repeated confrontations, was sworn in as new interim president.
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama and his national security team tread delicately Thursday in the aftermath of the ouster of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, urging the restive nation to quickly return authority to a democratically elected civilian government and avoid violence. The administration still declined to take sides in the volatile developments as Egypt’s military installed an interim government leader. Ahead of Washington’s Fourth of July fireworks, Obama met with his national security team in the White House situation room for briefings on their calls to Egyptian leaders and other partners in the region, National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said in a statement. The carefully worded messages from the U.S. officials conveyed “the importance of a quick and responsible return of full authority to a democratically elected civilian government as soon as possible,” Meehan said. The series of calls by Secretary of State John Kerry, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and national security adviser Susan Rice went to officials from Egypt, Israel, Qatar, Turkey and Norway. The U.S. officials also urged a transparent political process in Egypt and the avoidance of “any arbitrary arrests of President Morsi and his supporters,” Meehan
said. The delicate diplomacy highlights difficult policy choices for the administration: • Denounce the ouster of Morsi outright, and the U.S. could be accused of propping up a ruler who’s lost the public’s support. It’s a prospect with eerie echoes of autocrat Hosni Mubarak, whom the U.S. supported for decades before the 2011 revolution that cleared the path to power for Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood. • Look the other way, and the U.S. could be accused of fomenting dissent or lose credibility on its commitment to the democratic process. The administration is acting as if it accepts what happened in Egypt – and believes it could turn out for the best. At the same time, officials are attempting to keep their distance, laying down markers for what they want to see in the long term while leaving it up to the military to make sure that happens. But the White House may also be concerned that in the short term, the situation could spiral out of hand, with the military using the clamoring in the streets as an excuse to confront the Muslim Brotherhood with excessive force. In bringing up U.S. aid in conversations with Egyptians without cutting it off, the U.S. leaves itself room to escalate the situation if need be, but also to work with Egypt’s new government if it moves in the right direction.

Mandela on life support as family grave restored By JASON STRAZIUSO The Associated Press JOHANNESBURG – Nelson Mandela is being kept alive by a breathing machine and faces “impending death,” court documents show, as his family gravesite was restored Thursday. Mandela’s health is “perilous” and he is being kept alive by life support, according to documents filed in the court case that resulted in the remains of the former president’s three deceased children being reburied Thursday in their original graves. “The anticipation of his impending death is based on real and substantial grounds,” the court filing said. Mandela, who was hospitalized on June 8, remains in critical but stable condition, according to the office of President Jacob Zuma, who visited the anti-apartheid leader on Thursday. The president’s office also said doctors denied reports that 94-year-old Mandela is in a “vegetative state.” A younger person put on mechanical ventilation – life support – can be weaned off the machine and recover, but that it can be difficult or impossible for an older person. The longer a person is on ventilation the less the chance of recovery, said the chief executive of the Faculty of Consulting Physicians of South Africa. “It indicates a very poor prognosis for recovery because it means that he’s either too weak or too sick to breathe on his own,” said Dr.
Adri Kok, who has no connection to Mandela’s care. “Usually if a person does need that, any person, not keeping in mind his age at all, for any person it would be indicative of a grave illness.” “When they say ‘perilous’ I think that would be a fair description,” she said. In Mandela’s hometown, Qunu, on Thursday, the bodies of three of his children were returned to their original resting site following the court order. Family members and community elders attended a ceremony on the Mandela property that included the singing of hymns. The reburial took place in Qunu, where Mandela grew up and where the former president has said he wants to be buried. Forensic tests earlier confirmed the remains were those of Mandela’s children. Grandson Mandla Mandela moved the bodies to his village of Mvezo – Nelson Mandela’s birthplace – in 2011. The two towns are about 15 miles apart. Fifteen Mandela family members pursued court action last week to force the grandson to move the bodies back to their original burial site. Mandla Mandela – the oldest male Mandela heir and a tribal chief – told a news conference on Thursday that his grandfather “would be highly disappointed in what is unraveling.” Retired archbishop Desmond Tutu appealed to the family of Mandela, also known by his clan name Madiba, to overcome their differences.
The city of DeKalb is borrowing $6.5 million for the project, in addition to $2 million in tax increment financing funds. The library also planned to borrow up to $3 million, but officials said they will need only $2.8 million, which they expect to repay over two years through a local fundraising effort. The library also is chipping in $900,000 from its reserves. The project includes a 46,000-square-foot addition to the library, expanded parking and $4 million in renovations to restore the existing building and make it handicapped-accessible. Although the library board has yet to hire a construction firm, Clark Neher, president of the board, said he was very happy with how things are turning out.
• State grant: $11.6 million • City bonds: $6.5 million • Bank loans: $2.8 million • DeKalb TIF funds: $2 million • Library reserves: $900,000
Estimated library construction timeline • July 17: Approve construction manager • Sept. 9: Start work on the parking lot south of Oak Street • Nov. 29: Finish work on the parking lot south of Oak Street • March 31: Start building expansion • July 17, 2015: Expansion opens • July 20, 2015: Renovation of older space begins • Feb. 12, 2016: Entire library is open • March 4, 2016: Project complete “We’re feeling overwhelmed, we’re feeling quite positive that it’s actually going to happen,” Neher said. “This is a great thing for DeKalb. It will have future ramifications for 30, 40, 50 years. Clearly, we are in desperate need for
expanding. We’re not large enough to handle the volume of people who go there on a daily basis.” The DeKalb library board hired Nagle Hartray Architecture and Owner Services Group as the project architect
and owner’s representative, respectively. Each firm will be paid based on a percentage of the project’s total cost. Construction of the parking lot south of Oak Street is scheduled to begin Sept. 9 and be finished by Nov. 29. Work on the building expansion is not scheduled to start until March 31, with the building expected to be finished and open to the public by July 17, 2015. Renovations to the current building would begin after the expansion is finished. The entire project is targeted for completion by March 4, 2016. Haupt said the $11.6 million grant is the largest amount a single library is receiving through this construction program. “The state library will work with the community on the beginning of the construction of this wonderful new library,” Haupt said.
Pritchard: Schools need help with math, not writing • TEST Continued from page A1 “That’s the challenge we have when we talk about new revenue,” said state Rep. Robert Pritchard, a Hinckley Republican on the House education committee who voted against the state schools budget. “We find the Legislature wants to spend that and more. We find creative ways to say we have a balanced budget and [then] incur unpaid bills.” Pritchard contended it’s basic math, not writing, that lawmakers need to help schools with. Mary Fergus, a spokeswoman for the Illinois State Board of Education, said officials do not know where they will get the money at this point, but they say local districts won’t be left holding the bag. She said one possibility is returning to the Legislature to ask for a supplemental appropriation. “We’re still exploring options,” Fergus said. Gov. Pat Quinn signed the writing assessment requirement into law last week as part of the state’s $35 billion budget. But in his budget proposal in March, the governor originally called for $400 million in cuts to elementary,
middle and higher education. He blamed the dire scenario on the state’s nearly $100 billion pension funding crisis, which drains money from other programs. But thanks to more than $1.2 billion in increased tax revenue, lawmakers approved an education budget where spending remained flat compared to last year. It was welcome news for schools, which have suffered through $800 million in education cuts since 2009, Fergus said. However, the new budget provides the same $27 million for student assessment tests while adding the extra writ-

ing-exam requirement, Fergus said. The 30-minute essay test will be included as part of the two-day Prairie State Achievement Exam, which is held in late April. Composed of the ACT test and a job skills test called the WorkKeys assessment, the exam is used for both college entrance and to determine whether students are meeting federal education benchmarks. Senate Democrats put the writing exam requirement back in the budget after lobbying from educators.
Within a year, they noted, writing skills will be required more than ever as the state moves to adopt the federally initiated Common Core standards, a more rigorous assessment to be used in the 2014 school year by Illinois and 44 other states. Last year, only 32 percent of Illinois high schools met federal education law benchmarks. Illinois’ writing exam – which is not required under federal education law – was eliminated in 2011 to save money.

OAK CREST DeKalb Area Retirement Center www.oakcrestdekalb.org
“We found a home we value…” We just spent an afternoon on the balcony of our two bedroom apartment home overlooking a beautiful pond and garden. To say we have it all might be a bit of an understatement. You see, when we were ready Jim & Bev Gillett to make the retirement decision, we knew we wanted to ﬁnd a community that felt like home and would offer great living accommodations but would also provide a full continuum of care and services. The reality of life is that at some point one or both of us may need some kind of care and support, and we wanted to be sure when that time came we could be together. We also were conscious of the costs associated with retirement living. After visiting other places near our home in Maple Park, we found the costs associated with the care and services didn’t translate into value. So, when we stopped in at Oak Crest we just knew we had come home. Not only were we impressed with the surroundings, the apartments, and services; we found an apartment we love at a price we love even more. Come see for yourself. It really comes down to this: life at Oak Crest translates into value. Jim & Bev Gillett, Residents since 2012

Nats’ Johnson: My Ouija board isn’t working WASHINGTON – Davey Johnson is having problems with his Ouija board. The Washington Nationals manager was in rare form Thursday before an 11 a.m. Fourth of July start against the Milwaukee Brewers, apparently having decided that humor was the best way to deal with the team’s hitting woes. He explained his decision to move Ian Desmond to the No. 2 spot in the batting order by saying: “I don’t know. Because I’m supposed to do something. I had an epiphany last night about 9:30 and I called Desi, and I said, ‘Desi, I’m changing something.’ ” Johnson switched Desmond with Jayson Werth, who was moved down to sixth. “I didn’t even explain it to Werth,” Johnson said. “He’ll figure it out – that I’m an idiot.” Asked about the makeup of the lineup overall, Johnson said: “I don’t have the answers. I mean, I still love this ballclub. I still like the talent. I like the makeup. My Ouija board is just, I’m having a problem with it. It seems like when we hit, we all hit, and when we don’t, we don’t hit. ... We’ve been in that cycle for a long time.” “I’ve thought about just throwing a bunch of names in a hat and picking them out,” he added. “I ain’t to that point yet.” – Wire report

8SPORTS SHORTS Lawyers: Ex-Bear Zorich, with tax, woes is broke CHICAGO– An attorney for former Bears player Chris Zorich, whose tax problems landed him in court, said his client is broke. Zorich pleaded guilty in March to failing to file federal income tax returns from 2006 to 2009. Zorich faces up to a year in prison and a $100,000 fine when sentenced, which is scheduled for July 12.

STUDYING HEAD TRAUMA
New Nebraska research center to study concussions Device in the works could determine whether athlete suffered concussion By ERIC OLSON The Associated Press LINCOLN, Neb. – If all goes according to Dennis Molfese’s plan, the day is coming when a football player who takes a hit to the head will come to the sideline, take off his helmet and slip on an electrode-covered mesh cap. The team’s medical staff will analyze the player’s brain waves on the spot and determine within minutes whether he safely can return to the game or whether he has suffered a concussion and, if so, how severe. Putting the finishing touches on that device is among the projects planned in the University of Nebraska’s Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior, which opens this month in Memorial Stadium’s newly expanded east side. CB3, as it’s called, is housed in the same $55 million structure that holds 38 luxury suites and an additional 6,000 seats for the football stadium. The center is one of a number university-affiliated research centers across the nation looking for better ways to diagnose and treat traumatic head injuries and make football and other sports safer. “There has been great concussion research that’s been going on for decades,” said Molfese, the CB3 director. “It’s disconcerting to realize just how little we really know.” Tom Osborne, Nebraska’s retired football coach and athletic director, said CB3 and the adjoining Athletic Performance Lab fit his vision for what he wanted to include in the stadium expansion. The project was one of Osborne’s major initiatives in his five years as AD. Osborne envisioned a collaboration of the athletic and academic sides of the university. So while athletes participate in concussion studies, political science researchers might use CB3’s brain-scanning technology to see if they can figure out why some people lean conservative and others liberal. Concussions have become one of the top concerns in sports in recent years after prominent brain injuries and disease in for-
Photo research assistant Sara Mason places an EEG net for detecting brain activity on fellow assistant Kevin Real on May 31 at the University of Nebraska’s Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior in Lincoln, Neb. The center, which opens this month in Memorial Stadium’s newly expanded east side, is working on a project that would allow football players who took a hit to the head to slip on the electrode-covered mesh cap and have medical staff analyze the player’s brain waves on the spot and determine within 10 minutes whether he safely can return to the game or whether he has suffered a concussion and, if so, how severe. mer NFL players, driven in part by some high-profile suicides. Thousands of former players are suing the league, saying that for years the NFL did not do enough to protect players from concussions. The NCAA also is addressing the issue. “There are a lot of things that are very important with the NCAA as far as the health and safety of the student-athlete,” NCAA chief medical officer Brian Hainline said, “and concussion is right up there as first and foremost. It’s the elephant on the table, and we, with everyone else, we have to solve it.” There are about 300,000 sports-related concussions reported in the United States annually, and hundreds of millions of dollars have been funneled into research, with much of the funding going to universities. Nebraska recruited the 67-year-old Molfese away from the University of Louisville, giving him virtual carte blanche in the design and equipping of CB3. Molfese is among 14 experts serving on the National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine Committee on Sports-Related Concussions in Youth, which will report to Congress and President Barack Obama on brain injuries in children and young adults. He also heads a Big Ten-Ivy League partnership studying brain injuries in sports.
Nebraska’s brain center is connected by a 100-foot skywalk to the new Athletic Performance Lab, which will research, among other things, injury prevention and hightech ways to maximize performance of athletes. CB3 and the performance lab will partner on some projects. CB3’s main attraction is a type of magnetic resonance imaging machine, known as a functional MRI, that tracks the brain’s blood flow. It’s hoped the $3 million scanner helps in the effort to better define what is and is not a concussion. “There’s no question it’s going to move the dial forward,” the NCAA’s Hainline said. “The big, hoped-for dream would be, let’s have a biomarker in brain imaging. If you’re to the left of that, you’re safe; if you’re to the right of it, you’re not. That’s probably a few years out. But functional brain imaging and blood flow are going to be a very important part of that.” The MRI machine also can be used on game days to assess injuries of all kinds. Molfese said the sideline concussion assessment tool would be the first of what he hopes are many groundbreaking developments to come out of CB3. The device would allow medical personnel to go beyond the standard practice of asking the injured athlete questions
and judge, based on his or her answers, whether it’s safe for him or her to return to a game. If a linebacker took a hit to the head, he would come to the sideline and have an electrode net placed over his head. Battery-powered brain-recording equipment would measure the player’s responses to stimuli. “We can get an idea of what area of the brain is being involved in the process, whether the speed of processing is at the rate it should be,” Molfese said. “The different areas of the brain that normally integrate information quickly stop doing that, so that’s another way we should be able to pick up whether there is an injury or not.” Molfese said the device eventually could be used in hospitals to screen patients for head injuries. “It would be routine,” he said, “and they’d know within 10 minutes.” Osborne said he’s fascinated by the possibilities. He said suspected concussions were dealt with the same way throughout his football coaching career. The athletic trainer would hold up two or three fingers in front of the woozy player’s face as he came off the field and ask him how many. “If you could come close,” Osborne said, “they’d put you back in. That wasn’t very effective.”
Cubs’ scoring threat in 9th fizzles Dunn connects on curveball

• WHITE SOX “You have to keep battling every single day,” Wood said. “Their guy pitched awesome. He kept us off-balance and off the scoreboard. I have to find a way to win these games. I need to step it up a little more.” Wood retired 12 in a row at one point, leaving the game after throwing 101 pitches. “It was a shame,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. “Six shutout innings. He pitched another great ballgame. One little passed ball.” Castillo, catching Guerrier (2-4) for the first time, wasn’t sure what to expect from the pitch that got away. “He made a good pitch,” Castillo said. “I just didn’t get a good read on it and it went between my legs.” The Cubs had a runner thrown out at the plate in the fourth and put two runners on with two outs in the ninth without taking advantage. Yoenis Cespedes threw out Starlin Castro trying to score from second on Alfonso Soriano’s single to left field. Soriano was later thrown out by Norris attempting to steal second, ending the inning.

Cubs starting pitcher Travis Wood delivers to an Athletics batter during the first inning Thursday in Oakland, Calif. The Cubs lost, 1-0. Dan Straily (5-2) gave up a hit over seven innings after being recalled from Triple-A Sacramento earlier in the day. He made the start to allow a sore Jarrod Parker to get two extra days of rest. Straily walked three and struck out six. The A’s also had a potential run thrown out on the bases. Against Guerrier, Chris Young singled with one out in the seventh but was caught stealing by Castillo. Norris drew a walk and went to third on Seth Smith’s single prior to the passed ball. Pedro Strop also made his Cubs’ debut with a scoreless ninth as the Cubs matched
their franchise record for players used before the All-Star break with 41. The Cubs also extended their franchise record by using 23 pitchers before the break. Notes: Cubs OF Brian Bogusevic left the game after the top of third inning with left hamstring tightness. ... The Cubs announced RHP Carlos Villanueva (2-4, 3.45 ERA) will start Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh, filling the spot vacated when RHP Scott Feldman was traded to the Baltimore Orioles. Villanueva started the year in the rotation, but went to the bullpen when RHP Matt Garza came off the disabled list.
and the other on Nick Markakis’ sacrifice fly. Quintana said the no-decision didn’t bother him. His previous strikeout high was eight, set against Texas on July 5, 2012. “Those are things you can’t control,” he said. “The most important thing to me is that the team wins. The best thing that I can do for the team is give the team a quality start, give the team the opportunity to win and give a quality outing.” Britton struck out three, walked one and gave up six hits over seven innings in his longest stint of the season. “Both guys pitched real well,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “There was only going to be a small margin of error. We were fortunate to push over a couple there out of their bullpen.” “Quintana was tough. I mean, that was solid. I can see why they’re so high on him. He’s been pitching well for them. They’ve got a lot of good young pitchers, but Zach matched him for the most part,” he said. Dunn decided the game by connecting on a curveball. “It’s a pitch you don’t want to throw to him,” Hunter said. “I would like to bury it. There were a couple righties coming up right after him.”

Lisicki does it again, in final Djokovic feeling fit, fresh semis
German rallies again, will meet Bartoli for title
By EDDIE PELLS The Associated Press
By HOWARD FENDRICH The Associated Press LONDON – Whether in a match, a set, a game – or even within a single point – Sabine Lisicki simply cannot be counted out. Especially at Wimbledon, where she is one victory from becoming a Grand Slam champion. Fashioning the same sort of comeback she used to eliminate defending titlist Serena Williams at the All England Club, the 23rd-seeded Lisicki reached her first major final by edging No. 4 Agnieska Radwanska of Poland, 6-4, 2-6, 9-7, in a compelling, back-andforth match Thursday. “I just fought with all my heart,” said Lisicki, who twice was two points away from losing to 2012 runner-up Radwanska. “I believed that I could still win, no matter what the score was.” On Saturday, Lisicki will face 15th-seeded Marion Bartoli, who took a nap on a locker-room couch before heading out to Centre Court and earning a berth in her second Wimbledon final with a 6-1, 6-2 victory over No. 20 Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium. It’s only the second time in the 45-year Open era that two women who have never won a Grand Slam trophy will play for the championship at the grass-court tournament. Germany’s Lisicki and France’s Bartoli also form the second-lowest pair of seeded women to meet for the Wimbledon title. In 2007, Bartoli was No. 18 when she lost to No. 23 Venus Williams.
Sabine Lisicki of Germany reacts after defeating Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland in their semifinal match at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships on Thursday in Wimbledon, London. “In the beginning of the tournament, no one, I think, (expected) those names in the semis or in the finals,” Radwanska said. That’s for sure. In 11 of the past 13 years, one Williams sister or the other –and sometimes both – reached the final at the All England Club. This year, fivetime champion Venus sat out because of a back injury, while five-time champion Serena’s 34-match winning streak ended with a loss to Lisicki in Monday’s fourth round. In that match, Lisicki won the first set, dropped nine games in a row to fall behind 3-0 in the third, and eventually took the last four games. In the semifinals, Lisicki won the first set, dropped nine of 11 games to fall behind 3-0 in the third, and eventually turned it around. “I thought, ‘I’ve done it against Serena, so you can do it today as well. Just hang in there,’ ” Lisicki said. “It gave me so much confidence.”

Not only did she fall outside the top 150 in the rankings, but Lisicki says her rehabilitation felt like a course in how to use that leg. “I can still remember when
the doctor told me that I have to be on crutches the next six weeks. I was like, ‘OK, when can I get back?’ That was my first question,” Lisicki recalled Thursday. “That period made me such a much stronger person and ... I know anything is possible after learning how to walk again.”
LONDON – One semifinalist is rebounding from a taxing five-set comeback. Another was so overwhelmed to reach the final four, he sat on the court and wept. One more has a knee that’s being kept in action through the miracles of ice baths, athletic tape and painkillers. And then there’s Novak Djokovic. Of the four men preparing for today’s semifinals at Novak W i m b l e d o n , Djokovic nobody has had skated through a less-taxing road than the top-ranked and top-seeded Serb, who remains the odds-on favorite to win his seventh Grand Slam title. “Coming into the semifinals, I feel physically fresh,” said Djokovic, who has won all 15 sets he’s played and averaged less than two hours a match, the lowest total of any of the final four. “And I’m ready. Plenty of motivation to win every match that I play here.” Djokovic will play eighth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro, who also hasn’t dropped a set in his first five matches at Wimbledon, but is the opposite of “fresh” – dealing with the effects of hyperextending his left knee twice: First in a match Saturday, then again in his quarterfinal victory over David Ferrer. The other men’s semifinal pits No. 24 Jerzy Janowicz, a 22-year-old from Poland who is making his deepest run at a Grand Slam, against No. 2 Andy Murray, who came back from two sets down to beat Fer-
nando Verdasco and advance to his fifth straight Wimbledon semifinal. Murray got himself into quite a bind in the Verdasco match, but slowed things down to make a meticulous comeback. He was on the court for 3 hours, 27 minutes to bring his total to 11 hours, 59 minutes, the most of the four semifinalists. How big a toll will all that take? “You never know,” Murray said. “The next match will be different from the one today. Who knows? Some of the guys, like Novak, (haven’t) lost a set yet. I’m sure he’s pretty happy with where his game is at just now. I’m happy to be in the semis. Regardless of whether it’s been five sets or the first matches were in three sets, it makes no difference.” Murray is trying to reach the final in the fourth straight Grand Slam he’s played. (He missed this year’s French Open with a back injury). He carries the hopes of a nation with him. No British man has won the country’s Grand Slam since Fred Perry in 1936. Janowicz is well aware of that. “I hope Andy will feel some kind of pressure,” he said. “I’m sure he’ll feel some kind of pressure because Great Britain is waiting for the (British) champion in Wimbledon.” Janowicz knows all about the feeling of playing for a country. In an all-Polish quarterfinal, he defeated Lukasz Kubot in a match he called “one of the toughest matches of my life.” “I was never in a quarterfinal before. I never had a chance to be in the semifinal of a Grand Slam. I never played against Lukasz before,” Janowicz said in describing the emotions of the match.
PGA TOUR: GREENBRIER CLASSIC
Johnson has new take on restarts Gainey, Wagner off to hot start By MARK LONG
By JOHN RABY
The Associated Press
The Associated Press
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Five-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson is reshaping his views about restarts. After two noticeable mistakes during recent restarts late in Sprint Cup races, Johnson said Thursday he plans to “lighten up and loosen up” when it comes to restarts. “I know the rule,” Johnson said. “I feel like I’m maybe a little focused on the way the rule reads exactly and paying maybe too close of attention to that.” Johnson was penalized at Dover early last month for jumping a restart. Since then he’s been critical of the pace of restarts and the interpretation of rules regarding them. He had a costly error at Kentucky last week, spinning shortly after a sluggish restart. Johnson accused leader Matt Kenseth of breaking the pace car speed during the restart.
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. – The mustache is gone, and for one round at least, Johnson Wagner also didn’t have to deal with playing bad golf. Wagner and Tommy Gainey each shot an 8-under-par 62 on Thursday to share a two-stroke lead after the first round of the Greenbrier Classic. Webb Simpson and Jin Park were close behind after 64s. Daniel Summerhays, Tag Ridings, Steven Bowditch and 50-year-old Neal Lancaster were another shot back. Players were able to lift, clean and place their balls Thursday after rain fell before the start of play. Gainey and Wagner had bogey-free rounds in the morning. Wagner was 8 under after 12 holes but finished with six straight pars. Both could use a good week – Gainey is 125th in season tour winnings, while Wagner ranks 148th. Wagner doesn’t have a top-10 finish this year and the three-time tour champion hasn’t won since the 2012 Sony Open. In his past seven tournaments, he’s missed six cuts and withdrew from the Memorial. “The last couple of months have been really hard,” Wagner said. “I just haven’t been much fun to be around. It’s just been tough. Nobody likes to be bad at what they do, especially golfers.” A product of Virginia Tech
Jimmie Johnson checks on his car as crew members make adjustments in the garage Thursday during practice for the NASCAR Sprint Cup auto race at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla. “There are a lot of restarts, especially during the Kentucky race, that I brought down that I feel like a good citizen, a good student in doing exactly what I’m supposed to,” Johnson said. “There are other times when I don’t feel that exactly happens and that it’s not
called on or viewed from the tower as kind of the rule reads. “At the end of the day, I’m just going to lighten up on how I think about it and use that zone and that area regardless of the way the rule reads to get an advantage and worry about myself.”
Labonte not ready to ponder future By JENNA FRYER The Associated Press DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Bobby Labonte has spent his weekends at the race track for 22 consecutive years, a stretch so long he doesn’t even know what normal people do with their free time. He had to figure it out the hard way last weekend, when he found himself out of a ride for the first time since 1989. Labonte gave no specifics Thursday as to how he spent last weekend while AJ Allmendinger raced the No. 47 Toyota that Labonte has piloted since 2011. “Ended up staying busy doing something,” Labonte said. “Obviously wasn’t what I thought I’d be doing.” He didn’t watch the race at Kentucky Speedway, where his streak of 704 consecutive Sprint Cup Series starts came to an unwitting end. JTG Daugherty Racing decided to
use Allmendinger in the car for a handful of races this year in an attempt for the single-car operation to get more feedback on its car and the overall program. Labonte was able to keep his streak going when the team used Allmendinger at Michigan last month by jumping into Phoenix Bobby Labonte Racing’s No. 51 car for the weekend. But he indicated Thursday that it was a one-time only deal because of the conflict between JTG’s Toyota relationship and Phoenix’s use of Chevrolets. It put Allmendinger in an awkward position as he doesn’t want to be blamed for Labonte’s streak ending. “It’s such a tough subject because I am just trying to go out there and do my job,” Allmendinger said. “They asked me to go out there and drive
the car and get a feel for it and give my feedback. I’m just trying to give the best feedback I can, and at the end of the weekend, if they’ve learned some things, then I’ve done my job. “Bobby is so well-respected, he’s a champion, and streaks are going to end at some point. Not that I wanted it to end like that, but I have no control over that. I’ve just been hired to drive a race car. That’s all.” Now back in the car for JTG at Daytona International Speedway, the former champion was faced with questions he’s not ready to answer. “How long do you want to drive?” “Have you thought about retirement?” “What’s next for you?” It’s a conversation the 49-year-old is not ready to have. He played coy on most of the questions, revealing little about his thought process as he nears the end of a remarkable career.
John Daly chips onto the 17th green during the first round of the Greenbrier Classic on Thursday in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. – which is less than two hours from the Old White TPC course – Wagner chipped in for eagle on the par-5 12th, then finished with six straight pars. “I’ve been disappointed with 76s and 79s the last month, so I’m very happy to be disappointed with a 62 today,” said Wagner, who shaved his well-talked-about mustache in a nod to his wife for their seventh wedding anniversary Monday. “I didn’t get her a gift. So I thought maybe surprising her with a clean lip would suffice,” he said. The mustache will return at some point.
“I love irritating my wife too much to let it go for too long,” he said. Gainey’s first PGA Tour victory came last fall at the McGladrey Classic, but like Wagner he has missed more cuts than he’s made this year. Nicknamed “Two Gloves” for wearing gloves on both hands, Gainey had a serious talk with his wife, two other family members and his agent in the past month to try to figure out how to turn around his bad fortunes. Gainey said he had stopped having fun on the course. “I had gotten away from that and I’m trying to get back into that now,” he said. “I felt like I knew what was going on. I was putting too much pressure on myself.” Not Thursday, when he missed only one fairway with a new driver in his bag. “Hitting out of the rough is no fun,” Gainey said. “Trust me, I’ve been doing it for the past three years.” Wagner admitted he had thoughts of shooting 59. Gainey knows what it’s like to flirt with the magic number, which only five players have attained in official PGA Tour events. He shot 60 in the McGladrey Classic’s final round. At the inaugural Greenbrier Classic in 2010, Stuart Appleby shot 59 in the final round to win at 22 under. With favorable scoring conditions this week, there already is talk about surpassing that. On Thursday, the top eight scores produced only nine total bogeys.

Rival fans brawl in Vegas
Greek federation condemns slur The ASSOCIATED PRESS
The ASSOCIATED PRESS LAS VEGAS – Witnesses Thursday described a chaotic scene when brawls broke out among rival soccer fans at a Las Vegas match. Violence began in the parking lot Wednesday night when fans from two rival Mexican soccer teams – Chivas and Club America – arrived at Sam Boyd Stadium. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports fans threw rocks and bottles at each other before dozens of police officers moved in to quell the violence. But the incident set the tone for the rest of the night, as unruly fans threw punches, tossed bottles and set off fireworks and flares during and after the match. “It was probably the most surreal sporting event I have ever been to,” said Adam Berchin, a freelance writer who covered the match for The Associated Press. Berchin said a scuffle broke out between the two teams halfway into the match, after two players got into a shoving match on the field. “In no time both sides were all in one massive scrum,” Berchin said. He and AP freelance photographer David Becker said during the match flares were thrown onto the field and fire-
Police carry off a fan from the field after after Chivas defeated Club America, 1-0, at the El Super Clasico soccer match Wednesday night in Las Vegas. works were being set off in the stands. Chivas scored a goal late in the match but play was stopped with minutes left and time was allowed to expire when fans stormed the field. Chivas won, 1-0. More pandemonium broke out. As the players left, “there was just an onslaught of people taking to the field,” and brawls broke out between the yellow-clad Club America fans and red-and-white cloaked Chivas backers, according to Becker.
He said he saw one fan bloodied in the face. “There were three police officers who picked him up and carried him away,” he said. “Nothing good came out of this,” Club America president Ricardo Pelaez said after the match. “Security and soccer wise, we’re going to rethink what we do in the future real hard.” Las Vegas police Thursday said any updates about or injuries would come through the department’s public information office, which was closed because of the July Fourth holiday.
TOUR DE FRANCE
Greipel wins 6th stage; Impey leads By JOHN LEICESTER The Associated Press MONTPELLIER, France – Stage 6 of the 100th Tour de France was a textbook demonstration of teamwork. Like playing pass the parcel, an Australian deliberately handed over the race lead to help a South African teammate and friend become the first rider from that country to wear the famed yellow jersey. And Andre Greipel, who won the stage with a fierce finishing sprint, owed a debt of gratitude to teammates who plied him with drinks all afternoon, ferrying bottles back and forth from cars at the back of the race, so he didn’t melt in the scorching sun. “Room service,” the big German said light-heartedly. As the new leader of cycling’s showcase race, Daryl Impey can look forward to some first-class treatment, too. Being the first South African to wear the yellow jersey “will definitely change my life,” he said.
Rugby, cricket and, for the majority black population, soccer, are the big sports for South Africans. Impey can shop in the malls of Johannesburg, where he trains and lives, without being recognized, said his wife, Alexandra. But that was before his buddy on the Orica GreenEdge Andre Greipel t e a m , S i m o n Gerrans, passed him the race lead at the Tour. “Wearing the yellow jersey now is definitely going to change things for cycling, put it on the map in South Africa,” Impey said. “Hopefully, people will start recognizing me, maybe.” Gerrans knows the feeling. To wear canary yellow at the Tour is to be king for a day – or more depending on how long the rider keeps the lead. Gerrans had it for two unforgettable days. Fans clapped
and cheered when they saw him. Reporters chased him. A particularly boisterous crowd of Aussie fans played air guitar for him. The jersey also carries extra responsibilities: news conferences, podium ceremonies and other distractions can eat into rest and recovery – so important for riders to survive the three-week trek over 2,115 miles. Injuries from crashes already have culled seven of the 198 riders who started in Corsica on Saturday. Impey worked for Gerrans earlier at the Tour, helping him win Stage 3 and riding hard in the time trial Orica won as a team in Stage 4. Gerrans figured it was time for some payback. So on Thursday he rode in five seconds behind Impey in Montpellier. That was enough for the race lead to pass from one to the other, because they started the day with the exact same overall time, with Gerrans in first place and Impey second.
ATHENS, Greece – Greece’s basketball federation condemned remarks by the leader of an extreme right Greek political party who likened a recent NBA draft pick to a “chimpanzee.” The federation on Thursday described the remarks aimed at Giannis Antetokounmpo as “unacceptable and racist.” Antetokounmpo, an 18-year-old Greek shooting guard and the son of Nigerian immigrants, was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks. He was received this week in Athens by conservative Prime Minister Antonis Samaras. Nikolaos Michaloliakos, the leader of the far-right Golden Dawn party, likened
the 6-foot-9 player to a “chimpanzee” during a TV interview Tuesday. Antetokounmpo was selected 15th in the 60-player NBA draft June 27. He was seen celebrating the news at the Barclays Center in New York, crossing himself in the OrGiannis thodox ChrisAntetokounmpo tian fashion, waving a Greek flag and hugging family members. Golden Dawn has seen a recent surge in support as Greece endures a sixth year of recession. The party has mounted an aggressive campaign against illegal immigration and the austerity
measures imposed under the country’s bailout program. In elections last year, the party won 18 seats in the 300-member parliament, and is the third-strongest in opinion polls. Prime Minister Samaras has frequently described Golden Dawn as “neo-Nazis.” It is a label that the party rejects, although leading members of Golden Dawn have in the past openly expressed admiration for Adolf Hitler and denied the Holocaust occurred. Samaras said he felt “great emotion” at his meeting this week with Antetokounmpo and his parents. “I thank you for honoring our national colors,” he said. “I hope you drive them crazy with your slam dunks. ... All of Greece is so excited for you.”
SAILING: AMERICA’S CUP
Survival gear spawned for sailors By BERNIE WILSON The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO – When he jumps aboard his high-performance catamaran, America’s Cup champion skipper Jimmy Spithill is wearing his game face as well as equipment that can help save his life. America’s Cup sailors already wore crash helmets and life vests after the AP photo introduction of the 72-foot Oracle Team USA skipper Jimmy Spit- boats, which can sail fasthill walks to his boat on Wednesday in er than 40 knots and have been hard to handle. San Francisco.
After Artemis Racing’s Andrew Simpson was killed in a capsize May 9, sailors began wearing body armor, knives, an air tank and breathing tube, self-lowering equipment and underwater locator devices. That’s how extreme this America’s Cup is. Spithill said any preconceived notions about America’s Cup sailors “need to go out the window now” because they’re suited up more like motocross riders or NFL linebackers.

Me Teens can experience a mock refugee camp By FELIX SARVER firstname.lastname@example.org
ENOA – For one night teenagers will get to experience something that affects more than 20 million people around the world: displacement. Millions of people lose their homes or flee their countries because of persecution, bloody conflicts or natural disasters. Churches in Genoa, Kingston and Kirkland have teamed up to give teenagers a taste of what it’s like to be those people. On Aug. 11, a mock refugee camp will be held in the parking lot of 312 Eureka St. in Genoa. The teenagers who attend can expect a fun and meaningful night, said Mollie Hughes, event coordinator for Displace Me. “We live in a little fishbowl but other people don’t live like we do,” Hughes said.
If you go What: Displace Me, a mock refugee camp. When: 6 p.m. Aug. 11; deadline to apply is July 21. Where: 312 Eureka St., Genoa. Who: All teenagers from middle school and high school are invited. Cost: Participants can make a $10 donation that will go to Church World Services and Refugee One. Information: Call Kris Aves at 815-751-8743 Some of the items participants will have to bring include a cardboard box, sleeping bags, blankets and flashlights. No food or electronics will be allowed. Crackers or protein packs may be given out, but participants shouldn’t expect to eat pizza or enjoy luxuries they would normally have, Hughes said. The camp is expected to be open from 6 p.m. until 7 a.m. During that time activities will be held to further help participants learn what it is like
to live in desperation and deprivation. Some of the activities will be surprises, but one activity will show what it’s like to escape a country. “It will simulate what it would be like to cross over a border and get out of a country,” Hughes said. The activities are meant to inspire team building and leadership, said Kris Aves, another coordinator of the event. Teenagers will have to hunt for water or make their way around the camp through climbing, she said. “These are things you would not normally encounter,” Aves said. Nurses and adult supervisors will be on staff to ensure safety, Aves said. She said she also hopes one or two real-life refugees will attend to share their experiences. The idea for the program came from a friend whose husband specializes in immigration ministry, Aves said. She had been thinking about the idea for several years until she decided to partner up with Hughes and several others to realize it. She knew she wanted to
get local churches involved and make it specifically for teenagers. “I wanted something that was team-building and leadership oriented,” Aves said. “And something that allows [teenagers] to look outside their backyard.” In many ways, the event was largely planned by teenagers, Hughes said. While the people involved reached out to youth directors from local churches, they in turn reached out to teenagers and got them involved in creating Displace Me. “It’s kind of custom-designed by the teens themselves,” Hughes said. Teenagers became the target audience because the coordinators thought they would understand the experience better than other groups, Hughes said. The U.S. is a country with many advantages and hopefully teenagers will understand why many refugees and displaced people come here, she said. “That is how America was founded,” Hughes said. “... people coming here to make a better life.”

Garden at SUMC to supply food pantry Something new will cut the cost of providing fresh vegetables to the clients of the Sycamore Food Pantry at the Sycamore United Methodist Church. The congregation has installed two raised vegetable beds behind the church to raise produce for the food pantry and for homebound church members. The gardens were installed with the help of the DeKalb County Community Gardens, and the project is funded by the church’s Caring Ministry Network, supervised by the Rev. Harlene Harden and led by Master Gardener Carole Cook-John. Cook-John had the idea for the garden. It
was approved first by Harden and then by the church. The garden is planted with tomato, cucumber and pepper plants, and lima beans are coming up. There are plans to use the garden to teach church children about growing plants, and a grape tomato plant is specifically set aside for the children to tend and eat from. Volunteers are being recruited to help care for the garden. Cook-John said she thought the garden could be a cost-savings measure for the pantry and was a small way her church could be a part of today’s Christian movement to provide fresh healthful food to those in need.

8RELIGION BRIEFS Man, 51, arrested after fight over pew space during baby blessing PLAIN CITY, Utah (AP) – Utah authorities say a dispute over pew space during a Mormon church baby blessing led to a bloody nose. Weber County Sheriff’s Lt. Mark Lowther says officers were called Sunday morning to a Plain City meetinghouse of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Lowther says a family had saved some seats so they could have a better view of the baby blessing. Witnesses say the argument began when 51-year-old Wayne Dodge sat in the section. The dispute continued after the service, with Dodge allegedly punching a man in the face. Officials say the victim also was struck by Dodge’s vehicle in the parking lot and ended up on the hood. Dodge was booked into the Weber County jail on suspicion of aggravated assault and disorderly conduct.
Catholic leaders warned that the proposed law, which faces a final vote next week, would become a “Trojan horse” leading eventually to widespread abortion access in Ireland. But Prime Minister Enda Kenny insisted Ireland’s constitutional ban on abortion would remain unaffected, and his government’s Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill won overwhelming backing in a 138-24 vote. Ireland’s 1986 constitutional ban on abortion commits the government to defend the life of the unborn and the mother equally. Ireland’s abortion law has been muddled since 1992, when the Supreme Court ruled that this “ban” actually meant that terminations should be legal if doctors deem one essential to safeguard the life of the woman – including, most controversially, from her own suicide threats. Six previous governments refused to pass a law in support of the Supreme Court judgment, citing its suicide-threat rule as open to abuse. This left Irish
hospitals uncertain and hesitant to provide any abortions and spurred many pregnant women in medical or psychological crises to seek abortions in neighboring England, where the practice has been legal since 1967.
French far-right leader Marine Le Pen stripped of immunity in racism case PARIS (AP) – French far-right leader Marine Le Pen was stripped of her European Parliament immunity and may now face charges of racism over comments she made comparing Muslim street prayers to an occupation of French territory. The European Parliament voted by a show of hands during a meeting in Strasbourg to withdraw Le Pen’s immunity at the request of a French prosecutor. The parliament’s judicial affairs committee recommended the move last month so that Le Pen could defend herself against the charges, filed by an anti-racism association. Le Pen has reiterated the
remarks first made in 2010, and on Tuesday said she stands behind them and looks forward to defending her comments in front of a judge. “I’m going to defend myself before the court, and I’m absolutely convinced that the court will rule in my favor and protect my right to say to the French the truth about the situation, notably prayers in the streets, but not only that,” Le Pen said in an interview on French television channel BFM. She called street prayers outside of crowded mosques a form of “occupation” and said the prayers are a “political act by fundamentalists.”
Le Pen confounded polls and shocked many observers by finishing third in the presidential ballot, garnering 18 percent of the vote in the first round in May 2012.
Prosecutor, legislator seek to help defend Ariz. law banning abortions PHOENIX (AP) – A prosecutor and a state legislator are asking for court permission to help defend an Arizona law that bans abortions based on the race or sex of the child. A lawsuit filed on behalf of two civil rights groups challenges the law, which also makes it a felony to knowingly provide a
sex- or race-based abortion. The suit contends the law unconstitutionally singles out Asian and black women based on stereotypes and beliefs that Asian and black women may choose an abortion because of race or the baby’s sex. Montgomery, state Rep. Steve Montenegro and a Christian public policy group are requesting intervener status in the case. They say the 2011 law resulting from legislation sponsored by Montenegro protects unborn children from racial and sexual discrimination.

Irish lawmakers give initial OK for bill allowing abortions in emergencies DUBLIN (AP) – Ireland appeared on course to legalize abortion in extremely restricted circumstances as lawmakers voted Tuesday to support a bill that would permit pregnancies to be terminated when deemed necessary to save the woman’s life.

Couple shies from sharing facts behind birth Dear Abby: My husband and I are the proud parents of beautiful 4-year-old twins. After years of infertility, we found out that my husband has a low sperm count. Additionally, I have very few eggs. Ultimately, we conceived our miracles with IVF and the help of a sperm donor. We do not want to keep this a secret from our children. We want them to eventually know, understand and be proud of the journey it took to bring them into this world. However, my husband and I are very private people. We understand that once the dialogue with our children begins, others will naturally find out. My husband still feels very
DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips uncomfortable discussing his condition. How do we explain to our children, friends and family without becoming the focus of gossip and whispers? – Proud Parents Dear Proud Parents: Infertility among couples is no longer a deep, dark or shameful secret, and the fact that you needed help to have your children shouldn’t generate gossip or whispers because, frankly, it isn’t shocking or titillating anymore. When your children are old enough to be told the facts
of life, they can be told that they were conceived through in vitro fertilization. They do not have to be told every detail all at once. When they are older, they may ask questions about why it was necessary – and when they do, their questions should be answered honestly and in an age-appropriate manner. Dear Abby: Last year I started dating the man I thought I would someday marry. We connected instantly and had a deep love for each other. We argued during most of our relationship, but strangely, never stopped feeling the way we did at the start. Our connection was undeniable and our love endless. One night we got into a
heated argument over “inappropriate” emails between him and an ex. The argument escalated and I was arrested. Worse than being in trouble with the law for the first time in my life was losing my other half. Most people would say, “Walk away; you never belonged together.” But I don’t agree. I have never been in a relationship that had such highs and lows. I miss him and miss sharing my life with him. – Confused And Heartbroken
Dear Confused And Heartbroken: Whether you agree with “most people” or not, the most important person – the man you were involved with – no longer wants to be involved with you.
As much as you cared for him, if he was sending “inappropriate” emails to an ex, it appears he was not equally devoted to you. The coup de grace was when you became so violent you were jailed. You may miss what you thought you had with him, but what you need now is a therapist who can help you understand what a healthy relationship is all about, because this wasn’t one. It’s time to accept that this drama is over, because unless you do, you could be labeled a stalker and find yourself in even more trouble.

Age-related eye conditions may affect LASIK Dear Dr. K: I’m in my 50s and considering LASIK surgery. Should my age be a factor when deciding whether to have this procedure? Dear Reader: I can understand why you’re considering LASIK (laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis). It can correct common eye problems – nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism – and can eliminate your need for glasses or contact lenses. LASIK corrects vision by reshaping the cornea, the clear dome at the front of the eye. The procedure is painless, and complications are few when the doctor is experienced. (I’ve put a detailed illustration of the procedure on my website.)
ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff As LASIK has become more popular, many of us have contemplated having our vision surgically corrected. Even in your 50s or beyond, if your eyes are otherwise healthy, LASIK surgery can produce excellent results. Age itself isn’t a big factor in deciding whether to have LASIK surgery. Surgical outcomes are similar regardless of age. But you and your doctor should consider the following age-related eye conditions when making the decision: • Cataracts. With age, the
lens of the eye can become clouded. If this happens, the clouded lens can be removed and an artificial one implanted. If you’ve already had LASIK surgery, it’s trickier to choose the correct lenses for cataract surgery. If there’s any sign of clouding, your ophthalmologist may recommend cataract surgery first, and to reconsider LASIK surgery only after the cataract surgery has healed. • Glaucoma is caused by increased fluid pressure within the eye. The pressure affects the optic nerve, which starts in the back of your eye, leads to the brain and allows you to see. If glaucoma is untreated, it can lead to blindness. Ophthalmologists screen for glaucoma by checking intraocular pressure
(fluid pressure inside the eye) and looking for optic nerve damage. LASIK surgery leads to lower intraocular pressure readings. This may interfere with early diagnosis. Tell your ophthalmologist if you’ve had LASIK when you are being screened for glaucoma. You should not have LASIK if you have moderate or severe glaucoma. If your glaucoma is mild and easily managed, you may still be a candidate for the surgery. • Dry eye syndrome. With age, your eyes produce fewer tears. LASIK often worsens dry eye. Any ophthalmologist you see about LASIK should ask you about whether your eyes have a tendency to be dry, but just in case they don’t ask, be sure to mention
it. • Presbyopia. In our 40s and 50s, we become less able to focus clearly on near objects. That’s because the lenses inside our eyes get stiff, and a stiff lens can’t bend light in the way that’s necessary to see near objects. The usual remedy is to wear reading glasses. LASIK doesn’t prevent presbyopia. If you have LASIK in your 40s, you’re still likely to need reading glasses within the next 10 years or so. The price for LASIK varies by doctor and by community. The average price may be around $2000-$2500. Health insurance generally does not cover the cost.

Teen believes she’s punished for being good friend Dr. Wallace: Last Friday night I went to a movie with two of my best friends. I was supposed to be home at 11:15. After the movie, we three girls went to a coffee shop to get a snack. While there, one of my friends ran into an old boyfriend and was talking to him. She was our driver, and she asked the other girl and me to wait for her. Being good friends, we said we’d wait for her. This caused me to be 30 minutes late, and I was grounded for a week. I don’t think this was fair. I was punished for being a true, loyal friend. – Sherry, Vancouver, B.C. Sherry: You were punished

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Your best ideas are apt to come when reviewing situations that you successfully handled in past, which are similar to what you’re facing now. Trade on experience. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – A couple of rewarding situations could develop from two separate involvements. Both will involve distinctly different groups or organizations. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – You shouldn’t have too much trouble finding several solutions to a critical issue. The only problem you might have is deciding which one to use. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Try to use your free time as productively as possible. If you don’t, you might end up writing today off as wasted. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – It’s OK to enjoy yourself as much as possible, but be sure to seek both mental and physical stimulation. Relax and have fun while improving your mind and body. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Do your best to keep your priorities in good order. First, attend to your important obligations so that they’re not hanging over your head the entire day. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – You might be surprised by what you can learn simply by spending some quality time with a few bright pals. Additionally, it would be smart to ask a lot of questions. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Don’t hesitate to spend some time with a friend who has been indebted to you for some time. You could be in for a pleasant surprise when he or she picks up the tab. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – This is likely to be an extremely busy day in which you might have to handle several problems simultaneously. Fortunately, you’ll be able do so with grace and aplomb.
Ron very much and I would like to get back with him – soon. He still calls me very evening, and in summer school he walks me to class and is very “chatty.” If I happen to see him in school when he is talking to someone else, he will wink at me. All this is very nice, but Ron is not asking me out. What should I do? – Nameless, Garden Grove, Calif. Nameless: The next time you are talking with Ron face to face, tell him that you would like to go out with him again. In fact, set the time and date. If he accepts the invite, it’s up to you to keep
the flames of romance glowing. If he turns down your offer, stop talking with him at school and ask him not to call you anymore. There are too many other nice guys who deserve the chance to date you. Dr. Wallace: I’ve read so much about drug and alcohol addiction. I’m not sure I know what addiction really is. My dad and mother have alcohol (a mixed drink) almost every day, but I have never seen them drunk. My boyfriend says that if they drink every day, they are addicted to alcohol. I disagree. Will you please tell me what consti-
tutes addiction? – Nameless, McComb, Miss. Nameless: “Alcoholism – a Treatable Disease,” by The Johnson Institute states: “If the use of alcohol or other chemicals (drugs) is causing any continuing disruption in an individual’s personal, social, spiritual or economic life, and the individual cannot or does not terminate the use of alcohol (or drugs), that constitutes harmful chemical dependence.”

BRIDGE Phillip Alder
Defenders can count points, too Mogens Jallberg from Denmark said, “In democracy, it’s your vote that counts. In feudalism, it’s your Count that votes.” The more that bridge players count, the better they will play. In yesterday’s deal, declarer placed the missing high-card points by referring to the bidding. Today, let’s show a defender doing it to advantage. East is defending against four spades, and West leads the heart 10. What should East do? There are several important points in the bidding. Some players sitting East would add a point for the five-card suit and open one no-trump. But you should strive to find a reason not to open one no-trump when you have a five-card major. Here, having no minor-suit stopper is an excellent reason. South does not like to make a takeout double with 4-3-3-3 distribution, but his hand is a tad too strong to pass. North’s cue-bid shows 12-plus points. East wins with the heart jack, cashes the ace, and takes the king, West discarding, say, the diamond three. What should East do next? If West had a minor-suit ace, he should have ruffed the third heart and cashed it (or discarded an encouraging card in that suit). So the defenders are not getting a minor-suit trick. East must try for a trump trick by leading another heart. Here, when West ruffs with the spade eight and dummy overruffs with the 10, suddenly East gains a trump trick. It is a textbook uppercut.

8BEHIND THE WHEEL
Fiat 500 Abarth Cabrio is a hard charger By ANN M. JOB For The Associated Press Introduced this year in time for warm weather stateside, the 2013 Fiat 500 Abarth Cabrio is a fun little car for hard-charging drivers. They better be drivers who don’t mind getting stares and comments from passersby. You see, at 12 feet in overall length, Fiat’s 500 Cabrio performance model is a cocky, yet cute bug of a car that’s 13 inches shorter from bumper to bumper than the already diminutive, 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata. At just 2,545 pounds, the Abarth Cabrio also is nearly 200 pounds lighter than a 2013 Mini Cooper Convertible. And, with a 160-horsepower, turbocharged four cylinder making 170 foot-pounds of grunt, or torque for the Abarth Cabrio with standard sport-tuned suspension, low-to-theground stance and raucous, burbly exhaust sounds, this car can feel like it’s going faster than it is. By the way, this is before the Cabrio’s power-operated, fabric top is open, allowing the exhaust sounds to become even louder in the passenger compartment. The Abarth Cabrio’s fuel economy is noteworthy, too. Combined city/highway rating of 31 miles per gallon by the federal government tops both the 24 mpg for the 2013 Miata and the 29 mpg and 30 mpg for the base, 2013 Mini Cooper Convertible and uplevel Cooper S Convertible, respectively. All numbers are for manual transmissions. The Abarth Carbrio is not available with an automatic. But, this front-wheel drive Italian Fiat that comes out of a Mexican assembly plant isn’t cheap. Starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price, including destination charge, for the convertible Abarth is $26,700. This is $6,500 more than that for a base, 2013 Fiat 500 convertible with 135-horsepower four cylinder. It’s also more than the starting MSRP, including destination charge, of $25,945 for a 2013 Mini Cooper Convertible with 121 horsepower and 114 foot-pounds of torque and the $24,515 starting retail price for a Miata with 167 horsepower and 140 foot-pounds of torque. Still, when engine performance and stout handling are factored in, the Abarth Cabrio’s starting price seems more reasonable. Consider that a 2013 Mini Cooper S Convertible, with 181-horsepower, turbo
The 2013 Fiat 500 Abarth Cabrio is seen in an undated photo provided by Chrysler. four cylinder, has a starting retail price of $28,945. Fiat, which is majority owner of America’s Chrysler Group LLC, introduced its performance Abarth here on a 2012 Fiat 500 hatchback more than a year ago. The Abarth Cabrio followed in 2013 to become the Fiat 500 with the highest starting retail price and the most boisterous and playful attitude. Family and onlookers at first couldn’t get over how small the car was, with one Hummer driver referring to it as a “helmet.” Plenty of sport utility vehicle drivers, particularly on highways, took time to stare, too. But it’s the taut handling and spirited driving that makes the Abarth stand out. The test car responded readily, but without being twitchy, to steering inputs and moved with amazing agility around traffic, through city alleys, into parking spots and on
curvy roads. Because the Abarth Cabrio is a bit tall – nearly 5 feet – for its overall length, there can be a sense of tippiness in turns and aggressive curves. But the test car, with optional 17inch tires, hung on and kept its line as it blasted through curves. The Abarth Cabrio still is quite low to the pavement when compared with a van or SUV. At one point, the test car was behind a school bus, and the driver’s eye was at the same height as the exhaust pipe of the bus. Note that the Mini Cooper S is 4 feet 7.7 inches tall, while the lowslung Miata is just 4 feet 1. Everyone inside the Abarth Cabrio feels the road intimately. Even on smooth-looking pavement, there were vibrations pretty much all the time for passengers in the test car. It was worse on patched and rough pavement, where the ride was downright jolting and jarring, and the short wheelbase sometimes made for a choppy ride.
Thankfully, the test car’s low-profile tires didn’t suffer any flats from some major potholes. The ride also was loud, and the driver often had to adjust the volume of the radio. There was turbo lag at times from the 1.4-liter, turbocharged, MultiAir four cylinder, but the driver can maximize performance with smart shifts of the five-speed manual. No six speed is offered. Peak torque of 170 foot-pounds comes on starting at 2,500 rpm and continues to 4,000 rpm. This contrasts with the 177 foot-pounds of peak torque that arrives by 1,600 rpm in the Mini Cooper S Convertible. Premium gasoline is recommended in the Abarth Cabrio to get top performance, but regular is OK, too. Still, the Abarth Cabrio’s gas tank holds just 10.5 gallons, so the travel range is about 325 combined city/ highway miles. In comparison, the Mini Cooper S Convertible’s tank
holds 13.2 gallons. The test car’s optional performance seats were a thick, cushioned surprise and a welcome addition, given all the jolts and jarring that came through from the road. Front passengers enjoyed nearly 41 inches of legroom, but the top of the head of a 6-footer protruded from the cabrio opening. Back seat legroom of 31.7 inches is decent, considering the Mini Convertible has just 28.5 inches. Push a button and the top opens – either for a sunroof style or a full cabrio, with the fabric folded down by the rear spoiler and spoiling rear views. The Fiat’s TomTom navigation system, while removable and stowable, blocks views out the windshield and has smallish buttons. The radio, too, seemed clunky to use. While fit and finish looked good on the test car, one slight hit on a wheel well by a neighboring car door took a chip of paint off.
