Who can ban assault weapons? Experts differ on whether new gun law applies only to home rule municipalities By KEVIN P. CRAVER Do non-home-rule municipalities such as Richmond have the power to enact bans on assault-style weapons under the concealed-carry bill? It depends on whom you ask. The concealed-carry bill in its original form gives municipalities 10 days from when it takes effect to ban such weapons or lose the chance. The law firm that

The Richmond Village Board last Wednesday rejected, 6-0, a proposed ban after public outcry. The language was drafted by the law firm of Zukowski Rogers Flood & McArdle, which sent an email bulletin to municipalities Tuesday in the wake of Gov. Pat Quinn’s long-anticipated amendatory veto of the bill legalizing concealed carry. “If the bill does pass in either original or amended form, then municipalities

represents many of McHenry County’s municipalities says the language applies to all incorporated towns. Gun-rights groups, as well as the bill’s chief sponsor in the House, say that only cities with home rule have the choice. That ambiguity, opponents said, could lead to towns that enact such bans facing lawsuits from gun groups that have enjoyed a wave of success in getting gun-control laws overturned.

that are interested in enacting an assault weapon ordinance will have 10 days from the bill’s enactment to pass the ordinance, and home-rule units would possibly have longer,” wrote firm attorney Brad Stewart, who has been studying the bill in preparation for its enactment. But that assessment is not accurate, said Rep. Brandon Phelps, D-Harrisburg, who helped draft the bill after fighting for years to get concealed carry – Illinois is the

last state in the union to not allow some form of it. Phelps told the Northwest Herald that lawmakers’ intent was for only home-rule municipalities to have that choice. The reason, according to Phelps and Illinois State Rifle Association Executive Director Richard Pearson, was to prevent law-abiding gun owners from being caught in a web of differing gun laws from town to town.

Northwest Herald Web Poll Question

Is there a silver lining in the latest Metra outrage? I’ll play the optimist today. There actually might be a silver lining in the outrageous severance package given to outgoing Metra CEO Alex Clifford in exchange for his silence. That’s right. Clifford was paid to keep his mouth shut about some kind of shenanigans at Metra. There’s no other way to look at it. What those shenanigans are and how big, we don’t know. Yet. But the “yet” just might be the silver lining part. The going-away-quietly present – which could total almost $750,000 over two years – is so egregious that it’s outraged just about everyone in Illinois but the Metra Board members who gave it to Clifford. The House Mass Transit Committee chaired by state Rep. Deborah Mell has summoned all 11 Metra Board members and Clifford to a hearing Thursday in Chicago to answer questions about this offensive misuse of taxpayer dollars. A day before the legislative panel meets, the Regional Transportation Authority Board will question Metra Board Chairman Brad O’Halloran about the severance deal. The RTA has financial oversight of Metra, Pace and the Chicago Transit Authority. Clifford had just eight months left on his contract with Metra when he abruptly resigned last month. The contract entitled him to no severance if he resigned and just six months’ salary if he was fired without cause. Yet the Metra Board agreed to pay him about $440,000 for those 14 months. Plus, Clifford can be paid up to about $307,000 in salary – including two raises – for another year depending on whether he gets another job and what he earns in it. He’s also entitled to up to $75,000 in attorneys fees and $78,000 in moving expenses. All of this was given to Clifford on the condition that he remain quiet about why he resigned and not say anything disparaging about Metra on his way out the door.

By NICHOLAS RICCARDI The Associated Press DENVER – The ad seems like an artifact from an earlier political era – a grainy mug shot of a convicted murderer, flashing police lights, a recording of a panicked 911 call and then a question about Colorado’s Democratic governor, up for re-election next year: “How can we protect our families when Gov. Hickenlooper allows a cold-blooded killer to escape justice?” The online spot from the Colorado Republican Party appeared only hours after Gov. John Hickenlooper in May indefinitely suspended the death sentence of Nathan Dunlap, who killed four people in 1993 and was scheduled to be executed in August. The governor cited problems with the concept and application of the death penalty. Eclipsed by economic issues and other social concerns, crime is re-emerging as a campaign issue. From the 1960s to the early

1990s, Republicans hammered Democrats on crime for focusing too much on rehabilitation and not enough John on punishment Hickenlooper and imprisonment. That changed as crime rates plunged in the 1990s and Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton inoculated Democrats by being an avid death penalty supporter, interrupting his 1992 presidential campaign to preside over an execution. Now increasing numbers of states are turning away from mandatory prison sentences and embracing rehabilitation programs to thin out inmate populations and save taxpayer money. The shift has been particularly pronounced in conservative, Republican-dominated states like Georgia, Texas and South Carolina. That growing consensus is facing its first test in two political bellwether states

where demographics have pushed Republicans into a political corner. In ColoraMike do, RepubliCoffman can Rep. Mike Coffman held his seat last year partly by attacking his challenger for failing to support a proposed state law to take DNA samples from people arrested on suspicion of committing felonies, and the GOP is hoping crime issues will help them unseat Hickenlooper and win back control of the state legislature in 2014. They have attacked Democrats for rejecting legislation to impose mandatory sentences of 25 years to life on sex offenders and for passing a law limiting prosecutors’ ability to charge juveniles as adults. GOP leaders are trying to persuade the district attorney whose office prosecuted Dunlap to run for governor. Republicans say they have


no shortage of issues to run on in Colorado. But one, they say, stands out for its potency. “Crime, justice, law and order, public safety resonate in a more personal way than a chart and graph of GDP growth,” said Ryan Call, chairman of the Colorado Republican Party. In California, which has conducted the most ambitious criminal justice overhaul in the nation, Republicans are targeting Gov. Jerry Brown and legislative Democrats over the state’s policy that sends lower-level offenders to local jails rather than state prisons. The law went into full effect in late 2011, but already there have been several highly publicized cases of convicts released from prison committing crimes like rape and murder. The most prominent Republican to emerge as a possible challenger to Brown, former Lt. Gov. Abel Maldonado, in May launched a ballot campaign to reverse the prison overhaul.

“That’s what concerns me,” said state Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo. “It’s obvious it’s got nothing to do with severance. They’re paying him $740,000. This is in lieu of litigation. What I’d like to know is, what allegations were being made that there was going to be litigation over.” Franks has fought for reform of Metra and the RTA since Clifford’s predecessor at Metra CEO, Phil Pagano, stepped in front of one of his own trains after it was discovered he stole about $475,000 from the agency. “The guy they brought in to fix the Pagano scandal is getting more than Pagano stole,” Franks said. “Who’s to say what’s disparaging. Is the truth disparaging? Are we not entitled to the truth?” Jack Schaffer, McHenry County’s Metra Board representative, was the only board member to vote against the severance. He told Northwest Herald reporter Emily Coleman that Clifford was “too honest for Illinois” and was forced out because he wouldn’t look the other way on political patronage jobs. While Schaffer deserves credit for voting against the package, I agree with Franks that how these regional transportation boards operate needs to be blown up. “The first accountability starts at the County Board level,” Franks said. “They are the ones who appoint these board members.” Ever since the Pagano scandal, Franks has pushed the County Board to replace Schaffer on the Metra Board. He’s also fighting the reappointment of former McHenry County Republican Party Chairman Al Jourdan to the RTA Board. Jourdan’s five-year term on the RTA Board expired in April, but County Board Chairwoman Tina Hill has yet to decide on an appointment. “There’s a culture here that needs to

be changed,” Franks said. “This patronage and government-by-cronyism has to stop or we’re doomed.” Legislators must get to the bottom of the severance deal. They then need to clean up these transportation agencies and overhaul the boards that oversee them. ••• Parade and fireworks: Looking for something to do today?

The Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce, the Crystal Lake Lions Club, the city of Crystal Lake and the Northwest Herald joined forces to organize this year’s parade with the help of sponsors Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital, Centegra Health System and Home State Bank. Special thanks to the countless volunteers who make the parade, and all of the Lakeside Festival, happen. Without the thousands of hours spent organizing these activities behind the scenes, events such as this couldn’t happen. Following the parade and Lakeside Festival events will be the city’s fireworks display over its namesake lake. Fireworks begin at dusk. I hope everyone has had a safe and fun holiday weekend.

Ill. bans older type of hearing aid batteries The ASSOCIATED PRESS BELLEVILLE – The tiny button-shaped batteries that have been powering hearing aids since the late 1970s have long been known to be harmful to the environment because of their mercury content. Now, they’re illegal, as improving technology enables Illinois and several other states to ban them. Mercury was removed from alkaline batteries in the mid-1990s, but the popular zinc-air button batteries in hearing aids were allowed to stay on the market because until recently manufacturers could not come up with a mercury-free alternative. An Illinois law signed a year ago took effect on Monday, and supporters say it could help reduce environmental contamination and the risk to public health from exposure to the toxin, which can cause organ damage. “Mercury doesn’t break down,” explained Kevin

Greene of the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. “... If mercury gets into a water body, it can be converted into a more toxic form.” Mercury that builds up in the body can damage the brain, kidneys and central nervous system. “People are exposed to mercury most when they eat food contaminated with mercury, especially fish,” Greene told the Belleville News-Democrat. The new types of batteries are made without mercury and function almost as well, the newspaper reported. They are made by familiar companies like Duracell and Energizer, but some mercury-containing zinc-air batteries remain on the market. The Illinois law makes it illegal to sell or distribute the older type. The ban will “further lead to protecting human health and the environment,” said state Sen. Martin Sandoval, the Chicago Democrat who filed the legislation.

The Will County Coroner’s office identified the victims as Kelsey McGill, 18, and Patrick Boylan, 19. They were pronounced dead at the scene. Autopsies were scheduled for later Saturday. The teens graduated from the high school last year.

Concealed-carry changes draw fire Rep. Phelps: Quinn playing politics with guns By SARA BURNETT The Associated Press CHICAGO – The sponsor of legislation to allow the concealed carry of firearms on Saturday ripped Gov. Pat Quinn’s ongoing efforts to make the measure more restrictive, saying the Chicago Democrat is pandering to voters in Cook County and that his actions could lead to “mayhem” across Illinois. Rep. Brandon Phelps, a Democrat from Harrisburg, said lawmakers approved the legislation because they believed it was preferable to missing a court-ordered deadline to end Illinois’ lastin-the-nation state ban on the public possession of firearms. That deadline is Tues-

Gov. Pat Quinn speaks to the media Friday outside Wrigley Field in Chicago to press his message that guns and alcohol are a “toxic mix.” day – the same day Phelps expects the Legislature to override Quinn’s amendatory veto. But Phelps said Quinn still took a big risk by making changes to the hardfought compromise legislation. Given the support for it in the General Assembly – the bill passed both cham-

bers with well more than the three-fifths majority needed for the override – it’s highly unlikely enough lawmakers would reverse course to approve Quinn’s changes. But if the Legislature doesn’t override them, the ban would be lifted and no law in place. That could lead to statewide confusion, Phelps said. It also

could backfire on Quinn if the federal court then imposes a law that’s less restrictive than the measure the Legislature sent to the governor. “[Quinn] should be more concerned with what could happen if we don’t override his veto,” Phelps said. “There could be mayhem.” Quinn has said the changes were necessary because the bill is flawed and could jeopardize public safety. The original legislation allows qualified gun owners who pass background checks and undergo 16 hours of training to get carry permits for $150. Those with permits could carry more than one gun with unlimited numbers of ammunition rounds. The measure prohibits the possession of guns in such places as schools, taverns and parks, but would allow a gun to be kept securely in a car. It also bans guns from restaurants where liquor sales make up 50 percent or more of gross sales.

NSA leaks raise concerns on background checks By STEPHEN BRAUN The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Before Edward Snowden began leaking national security secrets, he twice cleared the hurdle of the federal government’s background check system – first at the CIA, then as a systems analyst at the National Security Agency. Snowden’s path into secretive national security jobs has raised concerns about the system that outsources many of the government’s most sensitive background checks to an army of private investigators and pays hundreds of millions of dollars in federal

contracts to companies that employ them. “You can’t outsource national security,” said Robert Baer, a former CIA veteran who worked in a succession of agency stations in the Mideast. “As long as we depend on the intel-industrial complex for vetting, we’re going to get more Snowdens.” The company with the biggest share of contracts is under a federal investigation into possible criminal violations involving its oversight of background checks, officials familiar with the matter told The Associated Press. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were

not authorized to discuss the investigation. Even with fresh congressional scrutiny, the federal government appears wedded to the incumbent screening system. Nearly three-quarters of the governm e n t ’ s b a c k - Edward ground checks Snowden are done by private companies, and of those, more than 45 percent are handled by the U.S. Investigations Services, or USIS, according to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the agency overseeing most of

the government’s background checks. USIS, which started out with 700 former government employees in 1996 and is now run by a private equity fund, dominates the background check industry, taking in $195 million in government payments last year and more than $215 million already this year. The OPM turned to private security screeners in the late 1990s because of growing backlogs that were snarling the government’s hiring process. A force of 2,500 OPM investigators and more than 6,700 private contract screeners has sliced into those

backlogs, reducing the time it takes on average for background screening by 9 percent in 2010. As of 2012, more than 4.9 million government workers held security clearances. Senior federal appointments are still carefully investigated by FBI agents, and the FBI and the CIA still maintain strong in-house screening staffs to vet their own sensitive positions. But privatization efforts started during the Clinton administration keep farming out work to contractors. The Defense Department turned over its screening work to OPM in 2004 and even intel-

ligence agencies that conduct their own investigations relegate some checks to private companies. The OPM’s success has come with mounting government expenditures. The average cost of a background investigation rose from $581 in 2005 to $882 in 2011, according to the Government Accountability Office. At the same time, a $1 billion “revolving fund” paid by federal agencies for most background checks has remained off-limits to outside audits. The White House pledged only recently to provide money for an inspector general’s office audit of the fund in the 2014 budget.

Guest workers harvest an onion field June 10 in Lyons, Ga. Two years after a handful of Southern states passed laws designed to drive away people living in the country illegally, the landscape looks much as it did before: still heavily populated with foreign workers, many of whom don’t have legal authorization to live in the United States.

Ga., Ala. stable two years after approving immigration laws By KATE BRUMBACK The Associated Press VIDALIA, Ga. – Two years after Georgia and Alabama passed laws designed to drive away people living in the country illegally, the states’ agricultural areas are still heavily populated with foreign workers, many of whom don’t have legal authorization to be here. There are still concerns over enforcement and lingering fears among immigrants, but in many ways it appears that people have gone on with life much as it was before the laws were enacted. Farmers say many of the foreign workers have returned because the laws are not heavily enforced and it once again seems safe to be here. But the story is more complicated than that: Some are still staying away or have gone underground, according to community activists, and some farmers say they are filling labor shortages not with returning immigrants but with workers hired through a program that grants temporary legal visas. Meanwhile, employers and workers in both states are watching as Congress wrestles over plans that aim to prevent future illegal immigration and offer a chance at citizenship for millions now living in the country illegally. Georgia and Alabama were two of five states to pass tough crackdowns on illegal immigration in 2011, a year after Arizona made headlines for a hard-line immigration enforcement law that ended up being challenged in the U.S. Supreme Court. Immediately after the laws were passed, farmers in both states complained foreign workers who lived there had left and the itinerant migrants who generally came through were staying away. American workers weren’t performing the back-breaking work immigrants had done for years, and crops were rotting in the fields because of a lack of laborers, they said. An informal survey conducted in Georgia showed that farmers of onions, watermelons and other hand-picked crops lacked more than 11,000 workers during their spring and summer harvests of 2011, Georgia Department of Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black

LAC-MEGANTIC, Quebec – A train carrying crude oil derailed Saturday in eastern Quebec, sparking several explosions and a blaze that destroyed the center of the town of Lac-Megantic and killed at least one person. An unspecified number of people were reported missing. Witnesses said the eruptions sent local residents scrambling through the streets under the intense heat of towering fireballs and a red glow that illuminated the night sky. Quebec provincial police Lt. Michel Brunet confirmed that one person had died. He refused to say how many others might be dead, but said authorities have been told “many” people have been reported missing. Up to 1,000 people were forced from their homes in the middle of the night in the town, which is about 155 miles east of Montreal and

about 10 miles west of the Maine border. The derailment caused several tanker rail cars to explode in the downtown core, a popular area known for its bars that is often bustling on summer weekend nights. Police said the first explosion tore through the town shortly after 1 a.m. The fire spread to a number of homes in the lakeside town of 6,000 people, and witnesses said the flames shot up highter than the steeple on a nearby church. Flames and billowing black smoke could be seen more than 12 hours after the derailment, which involved a 73-car train. “When you see the center of your town almost destroyed, you’ll understand that we’re asking ourselves how we are going to get through this event,” an emotional Mayor Colette Roy-Laroche told a televised news briefing. The cause of the derail-

ment was not immediately known. Dozens of residents gathered hours after the explosion at the edge of a wide security perimeter and many feared the worst. About a half-mile down the town’s main street, flames danced around a railway tanker that sat at the edge of the road. “On a beautiful evening like this with the bar, there were a lot of people there,” said Bernard Demers, who owns a restaurant near the blast site. “It was a big explosion. It’s a catastrophe. It’s terrible for the population.” Demers, who fled his home, said the explosion was “like an atomic bomb. It was very hot. ... Everybody was afraid.” Charles Coue said he and his wife felt the heat as they sprinted from their home after an explosion went off a couple of hundred yards away. “It went boom and it came like a fireball,” he said.


Maria Barbosa checks out a customer at her store, which caters to the area’s Latino population, as her son, Alex Suastegui (right), looks on June 10 in Vidalia, Ga. Barbosa estimated that her profits dropped by about 30 percent after Georgia’s law passed. told a U.S. Senate subcommittee hearing on immigration enforcement and farm labor. But then as courts began blocking significant elements of the law and some loopholes became apparent, some of the workers who had fled for fear of arrest and deportation returned. Others were drawn back by their longstanding ties to the communities. Victor Valentin, 25, and his wife, Maria Gonzales, 23, came to the Vidalia onion growing region in south Georgia five years ago and found work quickly. But when the state passed its law cracking down on illegal immigration, they feared they would be caught and deported, and left for neighboring North Carolina. They didn’t last long. With two young children and no support network there, life was difficult. At the same time, the situation in Georgia seemed to have calmed down. “We still talked to people here, and we heard there weren’t really any problems, that things hadn’t really changed,” Valentin said, explaining that the family decided to return to the Vidalia area after about nine months. He’s found work harvesting pine straw since his return. This year, Black and a number of industry leaders in Georgia told The Associated Press they haven’t heard of any labor shortages. The situation in Alabama is similar. “No one seems to be having any problems,” said Alabama’s agriculture commissioner, John McMillan, who said he has spoken with

farmers who saw migrants return once it became clear the law passed in Alabama was, in practice, mostly toothless. Courts blocked most of the law’s toughest sections, including one that required public schools to check students’ citizenship status, and the massive arrests envisioned by some simply didn’t happen. Also, according to government statistics, thousands of employers in Alabama have been ignoring a provision in the state’s immigration law that requires them to register with the federal E-Verify system, a program to electronically verify workers’ legal status. And yet, at least in Georgia, the story is a bit more complicated than it may seem on the surface. Some migrant families – both legally and illegally in the country – are indeed still avoiding Georgia because they fear discrimination and profiling, said Andrea Hinojosa, a community organizer who has worked with Latino workers in the Vidalia area for more than 20 years. Other laborers who had worked their way up from the fields into more stable factory or construction work have turned to less stable jobs because businesses are starting to use E-Verify, a key provision of the Georgia law, Hinojosa said. “I think it has probably put people back into hiding, put them back in the shadows,” Hinojosa said. “It doesn’t mean they’re not working. It could mean that they have just found a job where they can’t be detected.”

Health care reform Gay marriage ruling in use in other cases will be judged on three questions By MARK SHERMAN The Associated Press

The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Three months before uninsured people can start shopping for coverage, some big unknowns loom over President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. The surprise announcement this past week that the White House is delaying a requirement that many employers offer coverage raised questions about other major parts of the biggest expansion of society’s safety net since Medicare nearly 50 years ago. One delay may not matter much in the end. People will judge Obama’s law on three main points: premiums, choice and the overall consumer experience. Only partial answers can be gleaned now, and they don’t necessarily fall along predictable lines. Basic economics suggests premiums will be higher than what many people who buy their own coverage pay now, especially the young and healthy. The new policies provide better benefits, and starting next year, insurers won’t be able to turn away the sick. But the pocketbook impact will be eased by new tax credits and other features that people soon will discover. As for choice, Obama’s plan isn’t likely to deliver the dozens of options available to seniors through Medicare. But limited choices may not be seen as a step backward because in most states the individual health insurance market is now dominated by a single insurer. The consumer experience shopping online for insurance remains the biggest unknown

– and a risk. Squads of technology experts – federal, state, insurer and contractor employees – are trying mesh government and private computer systems together in ways that haven’t been tried before. It may not feel like Many people could default to enrolling the low-tech way, through call centers or even through the mail. Health care politics divided the nation even before the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, and the law’s full implementation four years later is shaping up as a tale of two Americas. The rollout might go well in mostly Democratic states that prepared, while it clatters and clunks in mainly Republican ones that resisted Obama’s law. Millions of poor people will be denied coverage next year because they live in states that are refusing the law’s Medicaid expansion. But most workers now covered on the job should not see major changes. With political strategists already honing health care attack lines for next year’s congressional elections, a former U.S. health secretary has an admonition for both parties. Mike Leavitt put in place the Medicare prescription drug plan for President George W. Bush in 2006 and now heads a consulting firm that advises states on Obama’s law. “It’s important for all of us to remember that it’s not political parties who are affected in the long run, it’s people,” Leavitt said recently. “It will be millions of people ... many of whom are the less fortunate, and those who have dramatic health problems.”

WASHINGTON – When the Supreme Court struck down part of an anti-gay marriage law, Justice Anthony Kennedy took pains in his majority opinion to say the ruling applied only to legally married same-sex couples seeking benefits from the federal government. But judges and lawyers representing same-sex couples are already using Kennedy’s language and reasoning in other cases about the right to marry. It’s a predictable next step in a long-term, incremental legal strategy that is being used at both the state and federal levels, and in state legislatures and executive mansions as well as the courts, to build public and official acceptance of gay marriage. Much the same approach was used decades ago by civil rights lawyers fighting state-sanctioned

discrimination; one decision becomes a stepping stone to the next. In the fight over gay marriage, Kennedy’s words also figured in an earlier example. He insisted in June 2003 that his opinion overturning state sodomy laws had nothing to do with governments’ recognition of same-sex marriage. Five months later, language from his opinion showed up in the second paragraph of a state court ruling that made Massachusetts the first state to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry. In the June 26 decision in U.S. v. Windsor, Kennedy said the provision denying federal benefits to legally married same-sex couples relegates those marriages to second-class status, and “it humiliates tens of thousands of children now being raised by same-sex couples.” He framed his argument with reference to states’ “historic and essential authority

to define the marital relation.” But it doesn’t take too much creativity to reframe his opinion to challenge state bans on same-sex marriage, said Jon Davidson, legal director of the gay rights group Lambda Legal. “It’s stigmatizing and it’s harmful to people and particularly harmful to children when their parents’ relationship is treated as inferior by the government. Those points are points we will be making in all of our marriage cases,” Davidson said. Davidson’s group is relying on the invalidation of the Defense of Marriage Act provision in a state lawsuit to force New Jersey to allow same-sex couples to wed. In that case, the new argument is that the New Jersey Constitution does not allow the state to essentially keep same-sex couples from receiving federal benefits by prohibiting them from marrying.

Like the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, other state court rulings in favor of gay marriage have relied on provisions of their state constitutions. That has not happened by accident. The litigation plan had been to pursue marriage in liberal states, based on state constitutions, and generally avoid federal courts where judges appointed by conservative Republican presidents had, until recently, been in the majority. Federal courts in California are so far the only ones that have said that a state same-sex marriage ban violates the U.S. Constitution. The Supreme Court did not decide that issue one way or the other in its gay marriage rulings, and instead relied on a technical legal argument to resolve the California case and clear the way for same-sex marriage in the state, which resumed at the end of June.

In this frame grab from video provided by Zach Reister, authenticated by checking against known locations and events, and consistent with Associated Press reporting, fireworks explode in the air and on the ground during a fireworks show Thursday in Simi Valley, Calif.

Spectators shaken after Calif. fireworks injure 39 By GILLIAN FLACCUS The Associated Press SIMI VALLEY, Calif. – For many people gathered to watch July Fourth fireworks at a Southern California park, it took time to realize the wild chain of explosions weren’t just part of the show. But those up close Thursday night knew immediately that something was wrong. They included Paulina Mulkern, who had to shove her 4-year-old cousin under a lawn chair as shrapnel came flying then shielded a 7-year-old cousin with her body as scorching debris flew overhead. “You feel the big old heat come right over your back,” Mulkern said Friday, still shaking a day after the chain reaction of accidental explosions at an annual fireworks show that had been put on since 1970 in Simi Valley northwest of Los Angeles. Thirty-nine people ranging in ages from 17 months to 78 years old were injured. Some had burns and shrapnel wounds, and some were trampled, authorities and hospital officials said. The injured included 12 children. Only three remained hospitalized Friday night. One was being treated by specialists at a burn center in West Hills, and two were in fair condition at a community medical center in Simi Valley, hospital officials said. Mulkern said she went

into shock after being hit by a flying piece of debris that left her with bruises and red marks on her back, trembling badly as she was carried to a road where rescuers stripped off most of her clothes and wrapped her in a blanket. “I was really terrified,” she said. “Every time someone launched a firework it got me into panic mode.” Cellphone videos captured a frantic scene among the crowd of 10,000. Fireworks exploded in big balls of sparks close to the ground, and smoke enveloped the park grounds. People screamed and ran. One mistaken man could be heard shouting someone was shooting. Colleen Schmidt was watching the show with guests at her house across the street when it slowly became clear something went terribly wrong. After a few fireworks lofted perfectly in the sky, there was a big explosion on the ground and a volley of blasts. Though a piece of shrapnel created a crater across the street then bounced and shot over nearby trees, Schmidt and her guests were lucky. “We had 150 people here and not one single spark hit our house,” she said. Police said it appeared a firework exploded prematurely in its mortar, knocking over others and aiming them across the field. Fire investigators, however, said later they had not yet determined a cause.

Tiny Chinese enclave remakes gambling world, Las Vegas The ASSOCIATED PRESS LAS VEGAS – Most people still think the U.S. gambling industry is anchored in Las Vegas, with its booming Strip and 24/7 action, a place where years of alluring marketing campaigns have helped scrub away the taint of past corruption. In just a decade, however, the center of gambling has migrated to the other side of the world, settling in a tiny Chinese territory an hour’s ferry ride from Hong Kong. The gambling mecca of Macau now handles more wagers than all U.S.-based commercial casinos put together, and many of those bets end up swelling the balance sheets of U.S. corporations. But as U.S. gambling companies have remade Macau, Macau has also remade them. Chasing riches, these companies have been hit with allegations of improper conduct, prompting investigations and serious questions about how closely U.S. authorities are watching the corporations’ overseas dealings, and what, if any, real repercussions they could face. Could these corruption claims revive the specter of gambling’s bad old days, when Sin City casinos kept mobsters flush? “There are some countries where you either have to pay to play and break the law, or you have to not do business there,” casino consultant Steve Norton said. “I think the jury’s still out on Macau.” Macau is the only place in China where gambling is legal. Each month, 2.5 million tourists flood the glitzy boomtown, most nouveau-riche Chinese who sip tea and chain-smoke as they play at baccarat. The former Portuguese colony has long been known for its gambling but used to offer a seedier experience, with smalltime gambling dens crowding up against textile factories and

Las Vegas Sands Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson (second right) and his wife, Miriam Ochsorn (right), look at a model of the Sands Cotai Central resort during a news conference in April 2012 in Macau to announce the launch of the $4.4-billion complex in Macau, a special administrative region of China. gangs, prostitutes and money-launderers operating openly. That was the scene in 1999 when China assumed sovereignty of Macau and opened it to outside gambling operators. “It was a swamp,” said Sheldon Adelson, CEO of Las Vegas Sands, as he looked back on his early venture in an obscure city where Chinese officials envisioned resorts. “Everybody thought that I was crazy.” Nevertheless, he and the two American competitors that tried their luck there succeeded spectacularly. Now operating four booming casinos in Macau, Adelson described Sands as “an Asian company” with a presence in America. He makes far more in China than in Las Vegas. “This industry is supply-driven, like the movie ‘Field of Dreams’: Build it and they will come.” he said. “I believe that.” If Adelson’s words and jacko’-lantern smile suggest all is right in the globalized casino world, consider where he made these statements – on the witness stand in a Vegas courtroom this spring, defending his company against one of his former Macau consultants.

A jury in May found against Adelson, awarding the consultant $70 million for helping Sands secure a lucrative gambling license in Macau. Sands immediately appealed. The company is also accused of making improper payments to a Macau lawmaker and collaborating with the Chinese mafia. The U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission are investigating. Sands says it’s done nothing wrong. It’s not just Sands facing legal and regulatory troubles connected with Macau. Two of the other three major U.S. gambling enterprises are, too: Wynn Resorts Ltd. and MGM Resorts International. Both Sands and Wynn are facing related lawsuits from shareholders who claim Macau mismanagement has damaged the companies. Sands has denied all claims, but recently said in an SEC filing that an internal audit had found possible breaches of a section of the FCPA that requires public companies to file proper financial statements and maintain a system of internal controls.

DOVER, N.H. – Thirty months after she was shot through the head, former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords sits in a New Hampshire restaurant facing parents of children killed in the nation’s latest school shooting. They are here to talk political strategy, but Giffords doesn’t say much. She doesn’t have to. The 43-year-old Democrat has become the face of the fight for gun control – a woman now known as much for her actions as her words as she recovers from a 2011 attack that forever changed her life and ended six others. Giffords has already traveled

more than 8,000 miles this week, her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, at her side, encouraging political leaders from Alaska to Maine to have the courage to defy the National Rifle Association. “I don’t think any of us thought this was going to be easy,” Kelly tells three parents of children killed in the Newton, Conn., school shootings, with Giffords next to him, nodding her agreement. “This is not going to be a quick fix. But we’re trying.” The couple is nearing the end of a seven-states-in-seven-days tour across America, meeting with allies and opponents alike to generate momentum for federal legislation that would expand background checks on gun

purchases. It’s a scaled-back version of a broad legislative package to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines proposed in the aftermath of the Newtown shooting rampage that left 20 children dead. But even scaled back, the measure was defeated in the Senate in April and has stalled in a divided Congress now preparing for its summer recess. As Giffords’ tour stretched into Maine on Saturday, the couple shared a private lunch with former President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara, at their estate in Kennebunkport, Maine. It’s unclear if Giffords and Kelly discussed gun control with the Bushes, who are personal acquaintances.

Amid clashes, Egypt’s new 50 GALLON 40 GALLON $ $ president asserts authority 695 WATER HEATER 750 WATER HEATER INSTALLED FROM

The ASSOCIATED PRESS CAIRO – Egypt’s new president moved to assert his authority and regain control of the streets Saturday even as his Islamist opponents declared his powers illegitimate and issued blood oaths to reinstate Mohammed Morsi, whose ouster by the military has led to dueling protests and deadly street battles between rival sides. But underscoring the sharp divisions facing the untested leader, Adly Mansour, his office said pro-reform leader Mohamed ElBaradei had been named as interim prime minister but later backtracked on the decision saying consultations were continuing. A politician close to ElBaradei said the reversal was due to objections by an ultraconservative Islamist party with which the new administration wants to cooperate. Mansour’s administration, meanwhile, has begun trying to dismantle Morsi’s legacy. He fired Morsi’s intelligence

chief and the presidential palace’s chief of staff. Prosecutors, meanwhile, ordered four detained stalwarts of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood held for 15 days pending an investigation into the shooting deaths of eight protesters last week. No major violence was reported between supporters and opponents of Morsi as the two sides sought to regroup after a night of fierce clashes that turned downtown Cairo into a battlefield. Clashes were also fierce in the port city of Alexandria, where thousands from both sides fought each other with automatic rifles, firebombs and clubs. Friday’s violence left 36 dead, taking to at least 75 the number of people killed since the unrest began on June 30, when millions of protesters took to the streets on the anniversary of Morsi’s inauguration as Egypt’s first democratically elected president. Morsi, a U.S.-trained engineer who was widely accused by critics of monopolizing power for himself and the

Brotherhood as well as his failure to implement democratic and economic reforms, remained under detention in an undisclosed location. Tensions were still high as tens of thousands of Morsi supporters rallied for a third day near a mosque in a Cairo neighborhood that has traditionally been a stronghold of Islamists, chanting angry slogans against what they called a coup by Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi. The general has denied the military staged a coup, saying he was acting on the wishes of millions of Egyptians protesting the ex-Islamist leader. “El-Sissi is a traitor,” declared an English language banner bearing an image of the army’s chief and hoisted by Morsi’s supporters. Setting up another showdown, the youth opposition group behind the series of mass protests that led to Morsi’s ouster called on Egyptians to take to the streets on Sunday to show support for the new order.

30 killed in school attack in Nigeria The ASSOCIATED PRESS POTISKUM, Nigeria – Islamic militants attacked a boarding school before dawn Saturday, dousing a dormitory in fuel and lighting it ablaze as students slept, survivors said. At least 30 people were killed in the deadliest attack yet on schools in Nigeria’s embattled northeast. Authorities blamed the violence on Boko Haram, a radical group whose name means “Western education is sacrilege.” The militants have been behind a series of recent attacks on schools in the region, including one in which gunmen opened fire on children taking exams in a classroom. “We were sleeping when we heard gunshots. When I woke up, someone was point-

ing a gun at me,” Musa Hassan, 15, told The Associated Press of the assault on Government Secondary School in Mamudo village in Yobe state. He put his arm up in defense, and sustained a gunshot that blew off all four fingers on his right hand, the one he uses to write. His life was spared when the militants moved on after shooting him. Hassan recalled how the gunmen came armed with jerry cans of fuel that they used to torch the school’s administrative block and one of the dormitories. “They burned the children alive,” he said, the horror showing in his wide eyes. He and teachers at the morgue said dozens of children from the 1,200-student school escaped into the bush, but have not been seen since.

Ex-prisoner chosen to lead Syrian opposition group The ASSOCIATED PRESS BEIRUT – A former Syrian political prisoner with close links to Saudi Arabia was picked Saturday to lead Syria’s main Western-backed opposition group, filling a post long vacant due to divisions among President Bashar Assad’s opponents. Inside Syria, government troops advanced into rebel-held areas of the central city of Homs, pushing into a heavily contested neighborhood after pummeling it with artillery that drove out opposition fighters, an activist said. The election of Ahmad al-Jarba as the head of the Syrian National Coalition came during a meeting in Turkey in what was the second attempt in recent months by Assad’s

opponents to unify their ranks. The opposition bloc is primarily composed of exiled politicians with little support among Syrians back home who are trying to survive the third summer of conflict that has killed more than 93,000 people and forced millions to flee their homes. Al-Jarba’s election suggests the opposition is trying to unite despite its differences after Assad’s forces gained ground last month in and around the strategic town of Qusair near the border with Lebanon. It also underscored the rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Qatar who are vying for influence among the Sunni-dominated Syrian opposition. Both have been prominent backers of forces struggling to oust Assad.

Windridge Memorial Park plans to double its capacity for ‘green’ burials • BURIALS Continued from page A1 my [family cemetery plot], and I didn’t want to go to his,” said Connie Frerichs, 70. “We knew we needed to come to an agreement on this because we want to be buried together.” The Crystal Lake couple later attended a local seminar on natural burials, an alternative to traditional burials where, depending on the client’s wishes, the deceased are laid to rest without embalming fluids, concrete vaults or caskets. They now have reserved an area at Windridge Memorial Park and Nature Sanctuary in Cary, one of three places in the state to offer natural burials, where his ashes will be sprinkled over his wife, who will be placed on a board and wrapped in a biodegradable shroud. “The whole process just seems more peaceful and inviting than traditional cemeteries,” said Connie Frerichs, who in the past three years has buried her mother and brother. “This protects the environment and will provide

Vote online at a serene resting place for us when we’re gone.” The choice provides an environmentally safe and simple resting place for the deceased. Natural and green burials are becoming a more popular option for those nearing or planning for death, according to local burial experts. The Green Burial Council, a nonprofit that encourages environmentally sustainable burial, represents 300 approved providers throughout North America. And a 2008 study by Kates-Boylston Publications, funeral industry publishers, found that 43 percent of those surveyed would consider a green burial. Windridge Cemetery has offered natural burials for more than 15 years. The 200 or so designated plots for natural burials are along two trails on the 48-acre site, which also offers tradi-

The cemetery is more than 90 percent full, and six additional acres are in the process of being turned into natural and green burial areas. The cemetery hosts at least one natural burial a week, said Eric Moen, family service counselor at Windridge. “So many people come to us not knowing they have choices other than a vault or mausoleum,” Moen said. “Mindsets have been chang-

ing over the years to a more green-friendly approach. This alternative choice is very appealing to many people.” One section designated for natural burials at the cemetery is designed for people to come in and tend to their loved ones. The deceased are buried in shrouds or biodegradable boxes, and family members place natural stones instead of monuments, as well as small benches or other personal effects, to customize

the plot. If they chose cremation, a newer, more environmentally friendly process exists, and their ashes are buried in an urn, or even scattered a few feet underground, some without any markings at all. “It’s a very healing process for our families,” Moen said. “These people come out and tend to the graves of their loved ones.” The other designated natural burial section, called the “deep woods,” is for people who want their loved ones to rest in peace. “It is very natural,” Moen said. “They are left there for nature to take its course.” When the green burial section is complete, clients will be able to bury their loved ones only with green-friendly items, which do not include bronze plaques on natural stones or metal hinges on caskets, to name a few. The growth in popularity has reached its way to local funeral homes such at Davenport Family Funeral Homes and Crematory, which recently added a green burial package. As with most natural or

State lawmakers meeting Tuesday to vote to override Quinn’s veto • WEAPONS Continued from page A1 “The intent of the law was that small villages couldn’t do this,” Pearson said. The term “assault-style weapon” refers to regular semiautomatic weapons that cosmetically look like military weapons, and share at least one feature of them such as the ability to accept a high-capacity magazine, but only fire one round at a time. Civilian ownership of an automatic weapon is already illegal in Illinois. State lawmakers are meeting Tuesday in special session to vote on a motion to override Quinn’s veto, which Phelps filed within an hour of Quinn submitting it. After months of debate between gun-rights and gun-control legislators, a compromise bill was approved by both houses on the last day of session May 31 with three-fifths, veto-proof majorities. Tuesday is also the deadline that a federal court set for Illinois to develop concealed-carry legislation before its December ruling striking down the state’s total ban on carrying concealed weapons takes effect. The 10-day clock for cities to ban assault-style weapons starts ticking when the bill becomes law. But should Quinn’s veto stand, homerule units would not have any time limit. Home rule allows municipalities to exert powers, such as additional taxation, that are not prohibited by state law. Municipalities without home rule can only exert powers specifically granted to them under state law. There are 209 home-rule municipalities in Illinois, according to the Illinois Municipal League. While cities with at least 25,000 residents automatically get home-rule power under the Illinois Constitution, smaller towns can enact home rule by voter referendum. Stewart’s reading of the bill is shared by Brian Day, an attorney for the municipal league. Day said that nothing in the concealed-carry bill as written limits the ban power solely to home-rule governments. He said the interpretation likely comes because the section also contains a provision pre-empting home-rule authority. “From a policy perspective, if you’re looking at the ability of a city government to draft a policy that’s a correct fit for its community, it wouldn’t necessarily make sense to apply this only to home rule and have it apply to the city that has 25,000 population but not to the city that has 24,900,” Day said.

What’s next The General Assembly will meet Tuesday in special session and vote on a motion to override Gov. Pat Quinn’s amendatory veto of the concealed carry law. Tuesday is also the deadline to enact concealed-carry legislation before a federal court ruling takes effect invalidating Illinois’ total ban on carrying concealed weapons in public. being overly specific” when it drafted the bill, and also acknowledged that the question could land State Rep. non-home-rule Jack Franks governments D-Marengo that impose assault-style weapons bans in court. State Rep. Jack Franks, an attorney, said that the bill could be open to interpretation. “I think [Phelps’] intention was just for home-rule communities, but as I read the minutiae of the language, I could see how it could be interpreted the other way because there’s no limiting language. I see there could be an argument either way,” said Franks, D-Marengo. Franks and McHenry County’s other representatives in Springfield have said they intend to vote to override Quinn’s veto. Pearson, state rifle association director and a former mayor, joked that town attorneys would benefit from communities passing laws that would cause them to face litigation. He also said that home-rule communities also could face lawsuits if they enact such bans. “And if [the municipality] loses, it’s going to cost them a lot,” Pearson said. The Marengo City Council last month placed discussion of an assault-style weapons ban on its meeting agenda, but decided against moving forward after city residents spoke out against it and the police chief said in a memo that he did not see the need. Of the two dozen municipalities listed by the state rifle association as discussing bans, all but four are home rule. The bill in question would allow Illinois residents to obtain a concealed-carry permit, good for five years, for a $150 fee and after completing a 16-hour training course. The Illinois State Police have 180 days from the day the bill becomes law to set up the permit system. The bill also mandates increased mental health reporting requirements, and allows local law enforcement to object to granting a license if they have a reasonable suspicion that the applicant is a danger to himself or others.

green burials, the package is less expensive because customers save on embalming and the common concrete vault the casket is placed in, among funeral costs. The funeral itself costs less because with most natural or green burials, family and friends usually say goodbye to their loved ones the same day, said Jack Davenport, owner of the funeral home, which has locations in Barrington and Crystal Lake. The business also uses Windridge for its burials. “It’s an old concept that has been reborn with the environmentally conscious folks,” Davenport said. “Everything lately seems to cycle back to simpler times.” Members of the Midwest Green Burial Society advocate for natural and green burials by hosting seminars, workshops and consultations with Chicago-area residents. “Human beings have existed for thousands of years, and natural burials are the traditional burials,” said Caroline Vuyadinov, executive director at the society. “People want things simply done and want to be kind to the earth.”

Witnesses say plane seemed to lose control, tail may have hit ground • CRASH Continued from page A1 said the two people who died in the crash were found outside of the heavily damaged jetliner. Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White said late Saturday that she did not know the ages or genders of the victims. As the plane approached the runway from the waters of San Francisco Bay around noon, travelers in the terminals and other eyewitnesses could see that the aircraft was swaying unusually from side to side and that at one point the tail seemed to hit the ground. Kate Belding, who was jogging a few miles away, said she thought: “Oh my God.

AP photo

This photo provided by Antonette Edwards shows an Asiana Airlines flight burning after it crashed while landing Saturday at San Francisco International Airport. That plane is crashing.” By the time the flames were out, the top of the Boeing 777’s fuselage had burned away. The tail section was gone, with

pieces of it scattered across the beginning of the runway. One engine appeared to have broken away. Emergency responders could be seen walk-

ing inside the burned-out wreckage. News of the crash spread quickly on Twitter and the Internet in this wired city, with eyewitnesses tweeting their stories, posting images of the plumes of smoke rising above the bay and uploading video of passengers fleeing the burning plane. Stephanie Turner saw the plane going down and the rescue slides deploy, but returned to her hotel room before seeing any passengers get off the jet, she told ABC News. Turner said when she first saw the flight she noticed right away that the angle of its approach seemed strange. “I mean we were sure that we had just seen a lot of people die. It was awful,” she said.

“And it looked like the plane had completely broken apart. There were flames and smoke just billowing.” The investigation has been turned over to the FBI and terrorism has been ruled out, said Hayes-White. Federal aviation and transportation investigators were heading to the scene. Asiana, Boeing and the engine manufacturer, Pratt & Whitney, pledged to work with them. Vedpal Singh, who was sitting in the middle of the aircraft and survived the crash with his family, said there was no forewarning from the pilot or any crew members before the plane touched down hard and he heard a loud sound. “We knew something was horrible wrong,” said Singh,

who suffered a fractured collarbone and had his arm was in a sling. “It’s miraculous we survived,” he said. A visibly shaken Singh said the plane went silent before people tried to get out anyway they could. His 15-year-old son said luggage tumbled from the overhead bins. The entire incident lasted about 10 seconds. Based on witness accounts in the news and video of the wreckage, Mike Barr, a former military pilot and accident investigator who teaches aviation safety at the University of Southern California, said it appeared the plane approached the runway too low and something may have caught the runway lip – the seawall at the end of the runway.

Base raises on merit MCC discusses salary hikes for administrators Employees who do their jobs better and more efficiently than colleagues in similar positions should be paid more. That generally holds true in the For the record private sector, at least when labor Across-the-board pay unions are not increases do nothing to motiinvolved. Where vate low-performing employpossible – meanees to improve or reward ing, where labor top employees for their good unions aren’t inwork. volved – it should hold true in the public sector, as well. Trustees on the McHenry County College Board failed to come to an agreement late last month on how much of a raise 38 college administrators should receive next year. Some trustees argued for across-the-board 3 percent raises. Others said the salary increases should be less than that. A consensus could not be reached, so no raises were approved. During the debate, Trustees Chris Jenner and Ron Parrish, the board chairman, said they would like to see the college move away from across-the-board raises for administrators. We support that idea. Instead, a merit-based system should be considered. The highest-performing administrators should receive a larger percentage of whatever pool of money is available for raises each year. And perhaps the lowest-performing employees shouldn’t receive an increase at all. College President Vicky Smith said that MCC administrators make an average of $19,000 less than their colleagues at neighboring schools, such as Rock Valley Community College and College of Lake County. That’s significant. Supporting the across-the-board raises, she said that the college has lost some good administrators in recent years to these other colleges because they pay more. We think a merit-based system would better enable the college to keep its highest performers. Pay them more, they stay. A merit-based system also might motivate the lower-performing employees to work harder and more efficiently. Instead of getting an automatic raise, they have to earn it. As taxpayers continue to be squeezed, governmental agencies need to become more efficient. Rewarding top employees while not rewarding inefficient employees is one way to accomplish that.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Unfair assessments To the Editor: The 2012 tax bills have been sent to property owners’ mail boxes. For many, their tax bills increased. If you are not angry, you should be. If you haven’t appealed your township assessment, you should. Why? Because the township assessment system is flawed and unfair. Property owners, both home and business, will receive a higher tax bill than those who appealed their assessment and won. There are many winners. The McHenry County Assessment Office received 10,500 appeals in 2012, a record number. On an average of the counties’ 17 townships, 84 percent won their appeals, lowering tax bills. Note: Of the 10,500 appeals, none came from the 17 township assessors. Hmm. Township assessment challenges are increasing. The McHenry County Supervisor of Assessments received 1,100 challenges in 2007; 2,300 in 2008; 5,900 in 2010;

8,900 in 2011, and 10,500 in 2012. Last year, the county granted 111 assessment reductions of $100,000 or more on business properties, equivalent to $300,000 in fair cash value. Some business properties were over-assessed by about $2 million. JC Penney in McHenry had a $427,500 assessment reduction. Property owners do not receive assessments that are fair, uniform or equitable from the township assessing system. Why? Each township has its own assessor; assessments vary from township to township because each assessor uses a different procedure. When township assessors make errors, they don’t receive a higher tax bill, you do. Property assessments should be done on a countywide level by the county Office of Assessments. The township assessor, and township government, should be abolished. Bob Anderson Wonder Lake

Freedom is hardly free; it requires sacrifice to maintain Living within one’s means is each individual’s own declaration of independence “Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it.” – John Quincy Adams Freedom is not the default position of humankind; otherwise more would be free. In much of the world, dictatorship, religious persecution and the suppression of women are the norm. Freedom has a price. Its currency is the blood of those who paid the bill. They can be found at Arlington, Normandy and scores of other places of rest where Americans died so that others might live in freedom. If a nation is unwilling to pay the price for freedom, freedom dies. As Ronald Reagan observed: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the

bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” Threats to freedom come not just from foreign powers or domestic terrorists. Subtler enemies can enslave us. These come from a focus on self: my rights, my pleasures, my money, to the exclusion of what benefits the whole, or as the Founders put it, “promotes the general welfare.” Who in our increasingly fractured country speaks of the general welfare? We are now mostly subsumed into groups. Identity politics is replacing our national identity. We are hyphenated Americans, divided by language, gender, race, class and orientation. Few are willing to stand up and point

Views Cal Thomas the way to what should unify us by embracing what is objectively right and good. Any political leader who attempts to define right and good can be subjected to an attack ad and stereotyping. We are hastily exchanging real freedom for license, which is unfettered morality and as dangerous as setting sail without a rudder. At best, freedom ought to be about doing good for one’s self, and especially for others. Sacrifice does not always require one to give up something. It also can lead to an investment in the life of another person, which collectively contributes to the health of the nation. It

goes beyond paying taxes. It is, as John F. Kennedy noted, asking what you can do for your country. What does that mean? At the least it should reflect the words from one of our great patriotic hymns: “Who more than self their country loved.” Find one poor person who wants help and liberate them from poverty. If you are pro-life, volunteer at a women’s pregnancy help center to save babies and help women, freeing them from the difficult circumstances that cause many to seek an abortion. If you think government is too big, become more responsible for yourself and rely less on Washington. This means living within your means and investing wisely. It’s called self-reliance, which is one’s own declaration of independence.

That which constrains us from being seduced by our lower nature is what guarantees our freedom. For some, it is Scripture. For all Americans it should be the Constitution. In 1878, British statesman William Gladstone called the U.S. Constitution, “the most wonderful work ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of man.” That document flowed from the Declaration of Independence, which presumed the existence of “our Creator,” the ultimate source of freedom and our rights. Abandoning these threatens freedom. We would do well to remember the meaning of freedom and why it must be renewed by every generation if it is to endure.

Breaking news @

Meyer not sure on timeline Company likely won’t know if it needs more mining time in Cary until ’16 By JOSEPH BUSTOS CARY – Whether the Meyer Material Co. will ask for more time to mine at its Cary location most likely won’t be known until the last year of scheduled mining operations, company officials said.

“I think our foot is off the panic button, but we certainly can’t promise we’ll get everything out the way we want to on time, but we’re striving.” Randi Willie, manager of environmental and land services for Meyer The company recently gave its annual update of mining operations in Cary

along Route 31 to Village Board members. Under the contract in

place, mining is to be completed by 2016, with restoration work to be finished by 2018. The company, in recent years with the economy struggling, had asked for an extension for mining operations until 2020 but later rescinded the request. Gravel sales have remained steady for the past

WONDER LAKE – To recoup some police department costs, the Wonder Lake Village Board unanimously implemented an administrative towing fee, its village president said. The $500 fee was based on what the village has to pay to send the arresting officer to court while keeping the same number of patrol officers on the streets, Village President Tony Topf said. “We were looking for a way to have the person who is creating the arrest pay for it,” Topf said, adding that if the person is found not guilty, the fee is refunded. For some small villages such as Wonder Lake, which has a population of just more than 4,000 people, the police department dominates the budget.

The grants went to 65 organizations across McHenry County during the foundation’s annual grants breakfast celebration in June. This year’s largest grant was $66,000 and was given

to the Challenger Center for Space and Science Education. “The grant came from a donor-advised fund,” said Robin Doeden, executive director at the McHenry County Community Foundation. This means the person or organization who is donating decided who received the grant. Most of the grants range from $1,000 to $15,000. The McHenry County Commu-

We then look at the requests and the organization’s size and grant whatever we can. It is a long process.”

The grant recipients celebration was held at Boulder Ridge Country Club in Lake in the Hills. More than 200 attendees watched the awards and a presentation by Doris Christopher, founder and chairman emeritus of The Pampered Chef.

• KREUTZER ROAD: Work is tentatively scheduled to start Monday in Huntley on the $4.17 million extension of Kreutzer Road west from Route 47 to Main Street. As a separate project, Kreutzer Road will be closed this week from St. Mary’s Church east to Huntley-Dundee Road for pavement repair, weather permitting. • CHARLES MILLER ROAD: A pattern change is scheduled for Tuesday to move traffic on River Road onto new lanes. Workers last week moved Miller Road traffic onto new lanes as well. Work is ongoing to create another two-lane span over the Fox River, and widen Miller Road to four lanes with dedicated turn lanes from Route 31 to River Road. The first phase, which consists primarily of build-

ing the new span and improving the intersection of Miller and River roads, will cost about $12 million and is anticipated to be finished by the end of October, weather permitting. • FLEMING ROAD: Work continues to rebuild the 2 ∏-mile stretch of road between Route 120 and Country Club Road. A posted detour reroutes drivers through Woodstock along Routes 120, 47 and 14. • WESTERN BYPASS: Watch for workers and delays as workers continue a $33 million project to build a two-mile, four-lane highway west of downtown Algonquin to relieve congestion on Route 31.

• ALGONQUIN ROAD between Main Street and Meyer Drive will be down to one lane through this fall. Watch for lane closures on Route 31/Main Street. South Main Street has one lane closed between

Edgewood and Huntington drives, and North Main Street has one lane closed between Cary-Algonquin Road and Linden Avenue. • HUNTINGTON DRIVE will remain closed between Circle Drive and South Main Street through summer 2014. A detour to Edgewood Drive is posted.

• INTERSTATE 90 AND ROUTE 47: Be prepared for slower traffic along Route 47 as work continues to create a full interchange. The completion date for the $69 million project has been pushed back to November.

to travel along the road from Chapel Hill Road to Cherokee Drive. Eastbound traffic is being rerouted through a Route 31, Route 120, Chapel Hill Road detour.

• ROUTES 31 AND 176: Workers closed East Terra Cotta Avenue, east of the intersection, as part of an ongoing $10.18 million improvement project set for completion in September.

July 14 fundraiser includes a 3.5-mile walk and silent auction • CANCER Continued from page B1 but in a good way. It’s been a roller-coaster.” Despite the distance, Frenk has seen strong support from friends in the Crystal Lake area along with people in the Lake Geneva community, as close to 200 people are expected at the event and more than $2,000 has been raised for pancreatic cancer research. The event, which will start

“Even when we were dating, we went up [to Lake Geneva] a few times. It was one of her favorite places in the world.” Ken Frenk Host of the inaugural Walk for Linda event

at 10 a.m., includes a 3.5-mile walk around Lake Geneva and a silent auction with prizes ranging from tickets to a Milwaukee Brewers game to golf outings and gift cards to

businesses. Katie Lesser, a friend of Frenk’s wife for 24 years, said events such as Walk for Linda not only help raise money for a worthy cause, but also play


an important role in the healing process. Lesser lost her brother to cystic fibrosis 10 years ago and she said the complete strangers she met at awareness walks in his honor touched her with their stories and genuine care for the cause. “I told [Frenk] you will be pleasantly surprised by the amount of people you will meet who are eager to help,” Lesser said. “It really is amazing.”

Supporting research to develop better testing and treatment for pancreatic cancer has become a major passion for Frenk. He said his wife’s diagnosis was shocking as they initially went to the doctor with what they thought was just gallbladder pain. Instead, it was stage 4 pancreatic cancer, which carries a 5 percent survival rate and four- to five-month life expectancy. Frank said that form of

cancer is nearly impossible to detect with current testing methods before it is advanced. “It’s very hard to detect because there are no symptoms or pain until stage 4,” Frenk said. “They are looking for ways to detect it earlier, and that’s where the funds are going.” The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, based in California, will be at the Lake Geneva event. Frenk is donating all proceeds to the organization.

Production at McHenry plants has been cut back • MINING Continued from page B1 in dealing with the parts we have left,” said Randi Willie, the manager of environmental and land services for Meyer. “We’re working feverishly to continue to deliver this project on time.” Village trustees asked the Meyer representatives if and when they would come back to the board to request more time to mine. “You’re asking when we would know; I’m taking a guess in saying it probably wouldn’t be until the last year,” Willie said. He said that as the company moves north in its mine, minerals are expected to be harder to get to as the topsoil and overburden becomes thicker. “I don’t think we will know that until probably the last year; that’s when we’re going to get into the worst conditions for overburden versus quality material,” Willie said. Willie said the company is trying to accumulate and store as much material as possible. “We’ve done some math inhouse,” Willie said. “I think our foot is off the panic button, but we certainly can’t promise we’ll get everything out the

800,000 tons

John Balke of Red Barn Farm Market in Woodstock lays out cauliflower Saturday before the Crystal Lake farmers market opens. The market runs every Saturday from June 1 through Oct. 12 and is open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Amount of materials the McHenry plant currently produces per year way we want to on time, but we’re striving. We’re looking at ways to get more material under the tunnel, to the other side, knowing that we’re not going to sell that much over the next three years, but can we get all of it underneath there and stockpile it? That’s the goal right now.” Willie added that the company is producing more material than it sells. Sales out of the plant have been flat over the past three years and only doing about 1 million tons a year, Willie said. Ron Raupp, the plant manager, said Meyer has not run its Marengo plant for two years, and production in McHenry has been cut back, “so we could start moving stuff north into the McHenry area.” The McHenry plant used to produce 2 million tons a year, and is now at 800,000 tons a year, Raupp said.

More communities implementing towing fees • TOW FEE Continued from page B1 Wonder Lake joins a growing number of communities to implement a towing fee for when a driver is arrested in connection with driving under the influence, driving with a suspended or revoked

license, an outstanding warrant or other charges where the car is impounded. Since 2007, when Lake in the Hills became the first McHenry County municipality to add an administrative fee, 15 other police departments in McHenry County have since implemented administrative impoundment

Community Foundation also offers training classes • GRANTS Continued from page B1 “Our main goal here is to enable organizations, people and families an opportunity to make gifts and narrow their focus as to who the recipient of that gift should be,” Doeden said.

Nonprofit organizations within McHenry County that would like to start working with the foundation should call 815-338-4483. The community foundation also offers training programs for nonprofit organizations. For information on how to apply for next year’s grant cycle, visit

fees. McCullom Lake and Bull Valley – both villages with fewer than 2,000 people – added administrative fees in the past couple of years. The village of Cary started charging a $500 administrative impound fee earlier this year, and a month later, Spring Grove upped its fee to

$350 from $250. While the village of Wonder Lake had considered charging between $450 and $625, it went with $500, which is what most municipalities charge. The fee does not include the cost of the tow or any court fees.

“Why should I have my ducts cleaned regularly?” This is a service that most home owners are aware of, but have not done for various reasons. NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) recommends that this should be done to maintain peak efficiency and performance from your system. Some of the most common reasons for duct cleaning are: 1. MAXIMIZE AIR FLOW – During the construction process or remodeling, all types of debris can end up in your ducts. (We have actually removed scraps of lumber!) All of these items can restrict air flow, which results in higher operating costs and creates uncomfortable rooms. 2. HEALTH BENEFITS – People suffering from various respiratory problems would certainly benefit from this service, along with proper air filters. 3. ENERGY SAVINGS – Excessive build-up in your ducts can migrate to your blower, heat exchanger and evaporator coil. If any of these parts get plugged, the equipment will not work properly and drive up the energy costs. A proper duct cleaning can prevent many of these problems and eliminate very costly repairs. Duct cleaning will make sure there are no obstructions in the system, possibly improve air flow, increase equipment efficiency and help to maintain a cleaner home. If there are any comfort issues or problems in your home, please contact me directly and I will personally answer all your inquiries.

CUBS P – Travis Wood

WHITE SOX P – Chris Sale

WHITE SOX P – Jesse Crain

Illustration by Tom Clegg AP photos

Persistence pays off for Wood CHICAGO – Four weeks ago, Cubs pitching coach Chris Bosio and staff assistant Mike Borzello met with pitcher Travis Wood and extended him a challenge. It was the same message they had delivered to Wood during spring training: Take your game to the next level. “Woody, you have to take that next step and be that guy,” Bosio recalled. “We need this out of you.” Wood has put in the work – video sessions on his off days, pouring over scouting reports and improving his secondary pitches – to leave behind an inconsistent 2012 season that often left him disappointed after starts, and his remarkable turnaround was validated Saturday. Before the Cubs’ 4-1 win against the Pirates, manager Dale Sveum addressed the team in the club-

ANALYSIS Meghan Montemurro house and handed Wood the news he had made the National League All-Star team. The All-Star honor is the first for Wood, who will be the Cubs’ lone representative at the All-Star Game on July 16 at Citi Field in New York. “It’s a goal you set as a player to play like an All-Star, be an All-Star and to be selected, it’s outstanding,” Wood said with a smile. Wood has been a bright spot in an otherwise bleak season on the North Side, providing consistency the Cubs have desperately needed. Although he sports a 5-6 record, Wood leads baseball with 16 quality

starts in 17 outings and a 2.69 ERA, which ranks ninth in the majors. In 12 of his starts Wood has allowed two earned runs or less, and opponents are hitting only .192 against the left-hander. “It’s a great story,” Bosio said. “He’s busted his tail. He’s really evolved into a top-notch major league pitcher, one of the best lefties that other teams have to look at. He’s not just another left-handed starter. It’s attributed to a lot of hard work.” What makes Wood’s ascent so impressive is how far he’s come in a year. A disappointed Wood was sent down to Triple-A to start last season – Bosio said they even considered sending him to DoubleA – to tinker with his pitches and try to become a reliable pitcher. He eventually made his season debut

in May but never put together a good run of starts. At one point in July, Wood surrendered eight, seven and eight runs, respectively, in three consecutive starts. It was a tough learning curve for Wood, who was part of an offseason trade in 2011 that sent lefty reliever Sean Marshall, a fan favorite and one of the best relievers in baseball, to the Reds. At the time it appeared Cincinnati was on the winning end of the deal, but Wood’s development this season into one of the best pitchers in either league has given the Cubs another core player to build around. With starting pitching at a premium, Wood and Jeff Samardzija provide a potentially great 1-2 combination in the rotation.

A simple wave can mean any number of things. It can mean “Hello” or “Goodbye.” If you’re in a car, it can mean “Go ahead” to someone merging and “Thanks” to the driver letting the other person merge. After an athletic event, it can mean “Good game.” Or, it can be used as a taunt by a cheering section to the losing team. The wave is versatile. And perhaps there is no wave more courteous or uplifting than the runners’ wave. Anyone who runs knows exactly what it is and what it represents. It will happen several times on any given run, when you meet another runner, maybe next to you on the path or clear across the street. The person may be twice or half your age. They may be cruising along like they’re chasing Algonquin Olympian Evan Jager or they might be slightly faster than a walk. None of that matters. You wave. You wave because runners have a kindred spirit. There’s a mutual respect there for doing something that is not always fun, especially when you start out, but is so satisfying when you have finished. What’s great about the wave is that runners, for the most part, understand each other. They admire the efforts of others because running is hard. When the last runner in a big race crosses the finish line, it’s usually to a loud ovation. The fans appreciate sweat and the pain and the work that runner put in just to be there. The wave is like that applause, only silent. The wave says, “Way to go,” “Keep it up,” or “Great job.” You wave, the other person waves back. Both of you get a little pick-me-up to keep pushing. You could actually speak, but so many people listen to music while they run that they might not hear you. So, as to not be rude or seem like you’re ignoring them, you just wave. The runners’ wave feels as good to give and as it is to get. And it’s deflating when someone doesn’t reciprocate. If you give another runner a wave, proper etiquette says they should give one back. We’re both out there doing something good for ourselves, which is nice to be acknowledged. Runners sort of have this unofficial fraternity/sorority thing going on. We are all driven by staying fit, keeping off weight and challenging ourselves physically each day. The runners’ wave? You could say it’s our not-sosecret handshake. • Joe Stevenson is a senior sports writer for the Northwest Herald. He can be reached by email at You also can follow him on Twitter @nwh_JoePrepZone.

What to watch



“Last 200 meters of run I felt like usain bolt bringing home gold, to anyone that saw me I prob looked like a chunky guy chasing a twinky” – (Johnsburg soccer coach Rob Eastland) @Eastie33

MLB: Pittsburgh at Cubs, 1:20 p.m., WGN The Cubs will try to take the series from the first-place Pirates after splitting the first two games.

Moments after Marion Bartoli won the Wimbledon singles title Saturday, BBC Radio 5 commentator John Inverdale asked listeners: “Do you think Bartoli’s dad told her when she was little ‘You’re never going to be a looker? You’ll never be a Sharapova, so you have to be scrappy and fight.’ ”

Three things to take from Inverdale’s comment about Bartoli: 1. So, Maria Sharapova doesn’t “have to be scrappy and fight” to win? 2. Not all Englishmen have class. 3. What an idiot.

ll of those Fourth of July fireworks mean that Bears training camp must not be far away. Sports editor Jon Styf and columnist Tom Musick discuss:

Musick: It was a blast to watch the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup, but I’m ready for the Bears to kick off training camp in Bourbonnais. Out with Michael Frolik, in with Matt Forte. Out with Corey Crawford, in with Chris Conte. Should I keep going? Styf: Personally, I’ll take Crawford over Conte. But you were on the right page to start. Yeah, hockey, hockey, hockey. But this is a football town. The Bears rule the fandom, like in most NFL cities. They just need to win. I’m not so confident they are much better than last year. They have the same Cutler problem and an aging defense. So, be happy and positive about training camp. But you’ve been warned. Musick: I’ll play devil’s advocate. What if Marc Trestman turns the “Cutler problem” into one of the Bears’ biggest strengths? If Joe Flacco can win a Super Bowl, I’ve got to think that Cutler is at least capable of doing so. Styf: So he’ll be a completely different guy than he’s been before? That’s an interesting sentiment. Guess Trestman’s a magician, or at least David Blaine. Every pro athlete has a Edwin Jackson moment, where you’re temporarily good, here and there. I just can’t imagine him being consistently good over a season. And he doesn’t have the pieces around him that the Ravens have around Flacco. Musick: Step aside, David Blaine. I can see it now. Marc Trestman: Street Magic. Maybe the Bears could put their new coach in a water-filled sphere for the first week of training camp. Or maybe the team could suspend him above Practice Field No. 3 until Brandon Marshall caught 100 passes in a row. Publicity-seeking magicians aside, I do think Cutler is capable of being consistently good for a season, and I also think the Bears have surrounded him with plenty of talent. Styf: Well, there you have it, folks. A vote of confidence from Tom Musick. It’s safe to say, like every season, anything less than the playoffs would be a major disappointment for this Bears team. And, ultimately, it might mean the end of the Cutler era regardless how many years he’s trying to convince us that it will take to learn the offense. Jay is a smart guy, he is confident. He is also susceptible to blowups and erratic passing and behavior. He has a big arm. If he ever won something, we might even call him Brett Favre. But he hasn’t. So bring on the hate mail. Musick: Already with the grumpiness. It’s not even training camp. Does anything make you happy? Sunshine? Puppies? S’mores bars? Anything? Styf: Your columns make me happy, Tom. When you turn them on in time. And water skiing squirrels. Is that animal abuse, though? You should call PETA and check for me. Musick: This probably would be a good time to tell you that my columns actually are written by water skiing squirrels. Styf: That’s hard to believe. Because even they would recognize Cutler isn’t going to suddenly change.

Last Sunday, West Dundee native and former Crystal Lake Leafs player Ryan Hartman became the Blackhawks’ first-round NHL draft pick, chosen 30th overall. This week, Hartman will participate in the Hawks’ prospects training camp, getting his first insider look at the franchise he grew up cheering for and that he secretly held out hope would choose him in the draft.

I wanted to be pretty open-minded (about the draft). I knew I was a guy who really could have been anywhere on the map. I could have been from (picks) 15 to 20 or from 20 to 30 and so I really didn’t set any expectations. I didn’t get too anxious too soon. [The wait] is very anxious, but exciting at the same time. I sat there for each pick and didn’t expect to hear my name, but if I did, I would be excited, obviously. After 24 or 25, I thought, maybe we could hold off a little bit more. We had held off pretty long so maybe a few more (picks) wouldn’t hurt.

When I heard my name, I stood up and they were playing (Chelsea Dagger), which is a pretty popular song in Chicago, which I thought was pretty cool to hear. It was awesome. It was real emotional. I had a lot of family from Chicago that was at the draft, and so it was a really good time for us. Chicago has come a long way and it’s really becoming a hockey city, when a few years back, it may not have been. But the last few years, the fan base has really been crazy, and they’re selling out pretty much every game. So being downtown for the parade a few years ago, the whole city was filled with people, nobody’s moving, just wall-to-wall, building-to-building, just full of people, [was] pretty amazing.

Putting on the Blackhawks sweater for the first time is more of a speechless type feeling. It’s very humbling, it’s crazy to think about. It’s one of those things where watching the Blackhawks growing up, you picture yourself with that jersey on and looking back, looking at pictures of me putting that jersey on up on stage is pretty crazy, but at the same time, it’s really awesome for me and my family.

I only played (in Crystal Lake) for a year when I was 10. (The Leafs) were playing out of Crystal Lake (eight years ago) and then moved to West Dundee a couple minutes from my house , but we won a state championship that year – we played the Chicago Blues in the state championship. So we were playing on a pretty big stage and it was definitely cool to win a state championship and I won a few more in the years to come.

I show a lot of heart when I play, and I’m a tough player. A lot of people think I just play the agitator’s role, but [the Hawks] see my offensive side, which is there. They know I can score goals and put up a lot of points if I need to. I do get under people’s skin a lot, but at the same time, I create offense and I create a lot of offensive opportunities, and so I mix in a good mix of both. I’d compare my game to someone like Andrew Shaw or Dave Bolland – they’re strong, physical guys and they produce points and they create offensive opportunities, but at the same time, they need to shut down the other team’s top line. If they need to create some energy for the team with a fight or with a big hit, they do. You definitely need guys like that to win games, especially in the playoffs.

8SPORTS SHORTS Wagner shoots 64, leads Greenbrier Classic by 2 WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. – Johnson Wagner shot a 6-under-par 64 Saturday to take a two-stroke lead after the third round of the Greenbrier Classic. Wagner was 14 under overall on the Old White TPC course in West Virginia. Jimmy Walker also shot a 64 and was second at 12 under. Sweden’s Jonas Blixt was 10 under after shooting 67. Texas

teenager Jordan Spieth and two others are 9 under. Wagner entered the day one stroke behind Matt Every. Wagner had seven birdies and a bogey in his round. No third-round leader has gone on to win the Greenbrier Classic, now in its fourth year. The tournament has been decided by playoffs the past two years, and Stuart Appleby shot 59 in the final round to win by a stroke in 2010.

New Tour de France leader insists he’s for real AX 3 DOMAINES, France – At his first real opportunity, Chris Froome blew away his main Tour de France rivals with a supersonic burst Saturday, a fierce uphill climb that felt a little like the bad old days of Lance Armstrong. But the Briton who took the race leader’s yellow jersey, and looks more likely than ever to keep it all the way to the finish in Paris on July 21, insisted there

are fundamental differences between then and now. Armstrong was stripped of seven Tour titles last year for serial doping. Froome promised that his achievements won’t need to be erased in the future. “It is a bit of a personal mission to show that the sport has changed,” Froome said. “I certainly know that the results I’m getting, they’re not going to be stripped – 10, 20 years down the line. Rest assured, that’s not going to happen.”

Froome hasn’t come out of nowhere. The 28-year-old was the Tour runner-up last year to teammate Bradley Wiggins, runner-up at the Tour of Spain in 2011 and has been the dominant rider this year coming into the Tour.

Game On Dude defends title in Hollywood Gold Cup INGLEWOOD, Calif. – Game On Dude led all the way in winning the $500,000 Hollywood Gold

Andretti wins pole, leads team’s sweep of front row By DAN GELSTON The Associated Press

Marco Andretti will be on the pole for Sunday’s Pocono IndyCar 400 in Long Pond, Pa.

LONG POND, Pa. – What a homecoming for the Andrettis. Andretti Autosport made it a 1-23 start – with local star Marco Andretti leading the way – to create quite a splash as the IndyCar Series returned to Pocono Raceway for the first time since 1989. IndyCar is using three-wide starts at Pocono, making it an all-Andretti front row on a track not far from

where one of racing’s greatest families has lived for decades. Andretti didn’t just win the pole, he smashed the track record. His two-lap average speed of 221.273 mph was fast enough for the pole Saturday and knocked Emerson Fittipaldi’s speed of 211.715 in 1989 out of the top spot for Sunday’s Pocono IndyCar 400. Pocono is considered a hometown track for the Andrettis, who hail from nearby Nazareth. Now, the local kid is going to lead

the field to green for the 400-mile race. Marco’s father, Michael, owns the team. His grandfather, Mario, was one of racing’s greatest drivers and is still a fixture at the track. It might be time for a big family celebration at Lake Wallenpaupack. But don’t forget to bring the teammates. Ryan Hunter-Reay starts second and James Hinchcliffe is third to help Andretti Autosport sweep the front row. “We have been making statement

after statement, so it’s a good feeling,” Marco said. Andretti won his second pole of the season. Michael Andretti won the Pocono pole in 1986 and Mario won the 1987 pole. Marco Andretti was not yet 3 years old when three Andrettis – Michael, Mario and John – all competed in the last Pocono race. Marco Andretti said he was excited to have the chance to drive in front of friends, family, maybe even most of the town will be packed into the grandstands.

Safety concerns rise for Winter Olympics


Until recently, the most interest thing about the Black Sea resort of Sochi was the staggering $51 billion tab the Russians are picking up to host the Winter Olympics in President Vladimir Putin’s backyard. It’s a pricey party that will go down as the most expensive Olympics in history. It’s also a pet project for Putin, whose prestige will be on the line in February when the traveling carnival show that is the Olympics takes place just a snowball’s throw from his luxurious presidential palace. And, despite pledges by Russia to make the games “the safest Olympics in history,’” it’s also the biggest target imaginable in a region unsettled by an Islamist insurgency. If the prospect of going for the gold in Sochi wasn’t making Olympians nervous before, it should be now. Anyone planning to watch the show might think twice, too, no matter how often Russian authorities assure everyone that things will be just fine. That was made clear this week when a top Chechen rebel warlord called on militants to disrupt the Olympics, describing them as “satanic dances on the bones of our ancestors.” Doku Umarov told his followers to do everything possible to cause havoc at the games, a particularly chilling statement considering his group is blamed for bombing a Moscow airport, two subway stations and a train in different attacks over the past three years. The response to the threat was both predictable and quick, with organizers and government officials saying 37,000 police officers and a complex and multilayered security system will protect both athletes and spectators in Sochi and its surrounding mountains. “We get threats before every Olympics,” said former Olympian Jean-Claude Killy, who heads the International Olympic Committee coordination commission for Sochi. “This cannot be taken lightly. I think the Russians are well equipped to face the challenge.” They may well be. Olympic security has been an evolving science since Palestinian terrorists massacred Israeli athletes after invading the Olympic village in Munich in 1972. Aside from the bombing in Atlanta in 1996 that killed one person, the games have for the most part been extremely safe. And, so far at least, U.S. athletes aren’t exactly panicking about the prospects of competing in Sochi. “At this point we haven’t

had anyone express concern,” said Patrick Sandusky, spokesman for the U.S. Olympic Committee. “Security is always a top concern for us and our athletes, and we take it all very seriously.” Still, you have to wonder whose idea it was to plunk an Olympics into a region beset by an insurgency – no matter how much money is spent to protect it. The Russians will undoubtedly pull out all stops to make the games secure – athletes at test events in January and February talked about patrols of guards with assault rifles – but these won’t exactly be the laid-back Winter Games of 2010 in Vancouver. Security questions weren’t even at the top of the list when Sochi won the Olympics in 2007, beating out Pyeongchang, South Korea, and Salzburg, Austria, in a secret vote by IOC members. Putin traveled to the meeting in Guatemala to personally lobby the members and lead the final presentation. But the Islamic insurgency active in the North Caucasus mountains that tower over the seaside resort of Sochi presents a very real challenge, even for a security plan backed by the full weight of the Russian government. The two Chechen brothers charged with the Boston Marathon bombings showed that rudimentary bombs that are relatively easy to make can cause terrible damage even in a tightly secured area. Big sporting events can make attractive targets, and they don’t get any bigger than an Olympics. Thankfully, Sochi has something going for it that Rio won’t when Brazil hosts the Summer Olympics in 2016 – a government security apparatus devoted to making the games incident free. You won’t see it while watching on TV, and, in the end, the Olympics are just one long TV show. Assuming there is snow in the mountains – another worry of the games – Sochi should look beautiful on TV, and Putin will realize his goal of showcasing the aging resort city to the world. No, it may not be the wisest place to hold an Olympics. But Olympic officials don’t always make the wisest choices. • Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

STEERING OR SUSPENSION PROBLEMS? SINCE 1948 634 W. Terra Cotta Ave, Crystal Lake

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Jimmie Johnson became the first driver in 31 years to sweep Daytona International Speedway, accomplishing the feat with a dominating run Saturday night for his fourth win of the season. The Daytona 500 winner is the first driver since Bobby Allison in 1982, and the fifth overall, to win both races in a season at Daytona. “I don’t think I made a bad move tonight. I’m pretty proud of that,” Johnson said. “Gosh, growing up in Southern California and watching Bobby Allison ... to do anything Bobby has done is pretty special.” The five-time NASCAR champion was the leader on the restart for a two-lap sprint to the finish in overtime Saturday night. He held off Kevin Harvick on the restart, and then pulled out front to a sizeable lead. Tony Stewart moved into second and may have been timing his attempt to make a pass for the lead when a crash in the middle of the pack froze the field. “We knew it was coming,”

Jimmie Johnson celebrates in Victory Lane after winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday in Daytona Beach, Fla. Johnson said of the late accident. “Getting down to the end of these things, we knew it was going to get exciting.” Stewart was second, followed by Kevin Harvick in a Chevrolet sweep. Both thought Johnson’s fast car, once able to get out front, was untouchable. He led 94 of the 161 laps. “These things are such a crapshoot ... all 43 guys have

a shot at winning the race,” Stewart said. “They definitely had a fast car. I mean, they had a fast car at the 500, they had a fast car here, so it makes sense.” Harvick thought the outcome would have been different if anyone had been able to get a push past Johnson. “I think we could have done the same thing in clean air,”

Harvick said. “I think the front car is in a lot better control.” Clint Bowyer was fourth and team co-owner Michael Waltrip fifth in a pair of Toyotas. Then came Kurt Busch, Jamie McMurray and Dale Earnhardt Jr. as Chevrolets took six of the top eight spots and seven of the top 10. Casey Mears was ninth in a Ford, followed by Ryan Newman. The race was stopped for almost nine minutes for a six-car accident with 11 laps remaining that included yet another vicious hit for Denny Hamlin. Hamlin’s car inexplicably turned right and spun hard into the frontstretch wall. It then turned back into traffic and Hamlin was tagged hard by AJ Allmendinger in a hit that caused his car to lift off the ground. Both he and Allmendinger had to collect themselves after climbing from their wrecked cars, but both were evaluated and released from the infield care center. Also involved in the late accident with Hamlin and Allmendinger were Matt Kenseth, Hamlin’s Joe Gibbs Racing teammate, and Jeff Gordon.

O’s Davis tops All-Star voting By HOWIE RUMBERG The Associated Press NEW YORK – Baltimore slugger Chris Davis powered past Detroit Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera in the final week to claim the most fan votes in All-Star Game balloting, and Washington outfielder Bryce Harper used a final surge to win a spot in the National League’s starting lineup. Right-hander Max Scherzer was one of a major leaguebest six Tigers chosen for the All-Star Game on July 16 at Citi Field in New York. St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina led the NL fan vote announced Saturday night. He is one of the Cardinals’ five All-Stars, tops in the NL. “I think any time you are getting that recognition, not only from your fan base but from everybody across the nation, I think it feels good to know that people are watching,” Davis said. Mets young ace Matt Harvey and third baseman David Wright will represent the host team in the 84th All-Star Game. Harvey received the most votes among NL pitchers in the player balloting, outpacing the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw. Cuban defector Yasiel Puig wasn’t picked – not yet, at least. The Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder with

just one breathless month in the big leagues is among five candidates for the final NL spot, with fans able to vote online through Thursday. Puig is joined in the final NL five by shortstop Ian Desmond of Washington, first basemen Freddie Freeman of Atlanta, Adrian Gonzalez of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and outfielder Hunter Pence of San Francisco. The American League’s five are all relievers: Detroit’s Joaquin Benoit, Toronto’s Steve Delabar, the Yankees’ David Robertson, Texas’ Tanner Scheppers, and Boston’s Koji Uehara. New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera was one of the 68 players selected. The 43-year-old career saves leader will hop across town as part of his retirement tour for a 13th All-Star appearance, second most by a pitcher behind Hall of Famer Warren Spahn, who made 17 teams. “The fact that I went through all the adversity and I’m standing here talking about the All-Star Game ... it’s a privilege,” said Rivera, who has 29 saves this year after missing almost all of last season with a torn knee ligament. Davis finished with 8,272,243 fan votes to edge Cabrera, who had 8,013,874, for his first All-Star selection.


Pettitte pitches Yanks to 6th consecutive win The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – Andy Pettitte stopped the Orioles again, Eduardo Nunez returned with a go-ahead hit, and the New York Yankees beat Baltimore, 5-4, Saturday for a season-high sixth straight win. The Yankees overcame Chris Davis’ major leagueleading 33rd home run and yet another double from Manny Machado, who was celebrating his 21st birthday. The Orioles have lost four of five. The 41-year-old Pettitte (66) earned his 251st win, tying Hall of Famer Bob Gibson for 44th place on the all-time list. Tigers 9, Indians 4: At Cleveland, Torii Hunter drove in three runs, Miguel Cabrera cracked a two-run homers, and Detroit dominated Cleveland for its fifth straight win. Twins 6, Blue Jays 0: At Toronto, Brian Dozier hit a three-run home run, Mike Pelfrey and three relievers combined for a four-hitter and Minnesota beat Toronto.

Luke Scott’s RBI double in the second inning marked the first extra-base hit by a lefthanded hitter off Sale this season. “You can’t expect him to blank everybody,” Sox manager Robin Ventura said. “He’s pitching fine, competing and doing all the things you want him to do. It’s just when you don’t get any runs, it seems like it’s wasted. We need to put some points on the board.” The Sox wasted Jeff Keppinger’s leadoff double in the second inning and squandered another opportunity in the third after getting their first two men on base. Adam Dunn’s opposite-field blast off Joel Peralta with a man on was caught at the warning track in the eighth.


Baez promoted to Double-A By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO CHICAGO – Days after being recognized as the Cubs’ minor league hitter of the month for June, infielder Javier Baez is moving up in the organization. The Cubs promoted Baez, their 2011 first round draft pick, from Advanced-A Daytona to Double-A Tennessee. General manager Jed Hoyer said it was “time for a new challenge” for the 20-year-old shortstop. Baez hit .274 with 17 home runs and 57 RBIs this season at Daytona. “I think he did a good job controlling the strike zone at [Daytona] the last month,” Hoyer said. “The defense has been better. He’s similar to [Starlin] Castro. He has to eliminate some careless errors, but he’s got great hands. He certainly can play the position.” Baez sufficiently cut his strikeouts and boosted his on-base percentage within the past few weeks, although Hoyer acknowledged he still has some unfocused at-bats. Defensively, Baez needs to reduce the 31 errors he had in 76 games. Every Cubs prospect has a development plan that is used as a guideline for when a player is ready to move up a level. Hoyer said Baez beat his player development plan by about a month. The goal was to get him to Double-A by the end of the year, but his play the last month pushed the Cubs to

Inside the Cubs CUBS 4, PIRATES 1 Tipping point: Alfonso Soriano was a one-man RBI machine for the Cubs. His two, two-run homers in the fourth and fifth innings off Pirates starter Charlie Morton was all the offense the Cubs needed. On the mound: Edwin Jackson continued his run of good starts by holding the Pirates to one run in 52/3 innings. He displayed better control, allowing four hits and walking two with three strikeouts. Jackson has won four of his past six starts. At the plate: While Soriano accounted for all four of the Cubs’ runs, Luis Valbuena and Welington Castillo both went 2 for 4. Anthony Rizzo also added a double. The Cubs had the lead-off hitter reach in each of the first five innings. Under the radar: With his two home runs, Soriano tied Harold Baines for 59th place in MLB history with 384 career home runs. He also recorded his 32nd career multi-homer game, the second this season. – Meghan Montemurro move him up. Baez, who hit four homers in one game at Daytona, added another remarkable moment to his young professional career Saturday. Baez homered on the first pitch he swung at during his first Double-A atbat. He finished 1 for 4. When Cubs manager Dale Sveum heard of Baez’s feat, he laughed and said, “He owns that league.” Hoyer wouldn’t rule out Baez making an appearance

with the Cubs in September but deemed it “highly unlikely.” “He’s got a couple of months now to make that adjustment,” Hoyer said. “I think there will be some growing pains. There usually are at the beginning of every level, similar to what he went through last year when he went to Daytona. But he responded this year really well.” Kane County Cougars Single-A outfielder Albert Almora, the Cubs’ 2012 first round pick, could be the next top prospect to earn a promotion. Almora, 19, is hitting .340 with three homers and 18 RBIs in 36 games at Kane County, though he was hampered by injuries earlier this season. “It might be a different conversation if he didn’t miss that month and a half,” Hoyer said. “He’s been really impressively there, but that’s something that we’re still evaluating.” The injury bug might have gotten Almora yet again. He left Saturday’s game after apparently hurting himself while sliding into second base to break up a double play during the bottom of the fourth. It’s quickly approaching crunch time for the Cubs to sign No. 2 overall pick, San Diego third baseman Kris Bryant. However, the Cubs are “certainly hopeful and optimistic” Bryant will sign by the Friday deadline, Hoyer said. “It’s not white-knuckle time,” Hoyer said. “Sometimes I think deadlines are what get things done. I’m glad they moved deadlines up a month.”

• WOOD Continued from page C1 “It definitely feels good when you think about it like that because they did give up a lot,” Wood said of the trade. “ … For it to pay off like it has, hopefully it continues over the years to come.” Wood’s evolution from Triple-A pitcher to All-Star required the 26-year-old to build a repertoire that consisted of more than throwing fastball and cutters to his glove side, as he did during his two mediocre seasons with the Reds.

Adding a breaking ball and two-seam fastball has helped Wood become an All-Star. If the Cubs’ offense showed up in more of his starts, he might have double-digit wins at this point. White Sox reliever Jesse Crain and starting pitcher Chris Sale will be joining Wood at the All-Star Game, both having been named to the American League team. Crain was voted onto the team by the AL players, finishing second for relievers behind Yankees closer Mariano Rivera, while Sale was a manager’s pick.

Sale, 24, earned his second consecutive All-Star selection in spite of a sub-.500 record, largely due to a Sox offense that averages 2.56 runs during his starts, second-fewest in baseball. However, Sale owns a 2.78 ERA and has struck out 123 hitters in 1131/3 innings. When Sox director of travel Ed Cassin called Crain and gave him the good news that he made his first All-Star team, the right-hander said he was close to tears. “To be playing, this is my 10th season, and get recognized is pretty amazing,”

Crain told the pool reporter. “Being a setup guy and not being a closer, that means a lot. It means a lot to be voted in by the players. I was little upset and nervous going on the DL, bad timing and all that. But it’s an honor.” It’s the first All-Star selection for Crain, although he will not be able to pitch in the game because he is on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain. Crain’s dominant season includes a 0.74 ERA, leading AL relievers, with 46 strikeouts in 362/3 innings. Crain, 32, set the

Sox’s franchise record with 29 consecutive scoreless appearances from April 17-June 22. “It’s good for all the guys who pitch the innings I do, in the seventh and eighth, it gives everyone a chance to make it,” Crain said. • Meghan Montemurro

Miami hopes to build on NCAA momentum By TIM REYNOLDS The Associated Press CORAL GABLES, Fla. – This stretch of years for Miami athletics will likely be best remembered for the Nevin Shapiro booster scandal and the stigma that came as part of the lengthy NCAA investigation that it sparked. In the eyes of Hurricanes athletic director Blake James, it could also be remembered for something else. Even as another year passed under the cloud of the Shapiro mess – which may actually end in the coming

weeks, if all goes right for Miami – the Hurricanes emerged with more reasons to be bullish about their future than ever before. One year after sending nine teams to NCAA tournament play, the Hurricanes sent 15 teams there in the academic year that just ended, something Miami officials are touting as a record showing for the school. “I wouldn’t say it’s as much about where we are,” James said in an interview with The Associated Press. “I would say it’s more about where we can go.” A printout on the confer-

ence table where he sat told the story. It was a simple chart, with the 18 varsity sports that Miami offers listed down the left side of the page, and columns for the last 15 or so years stretched across the top. Baseball – which has been to 41 consecutive NCAA tournaments – had an “X’’ in each of its columns. And that program had plenty of company on the NCAA-bound list. Men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s diving, women’s golf, women’s soccer, women’s swimming and

diving, women’s tennis, men’s and women’s indoor track, men’s and women’s outdoor track and volleyball all qualified for NCAA play. Football, had it not been subjected to a self-imposed postseason ban for a second straight year because of the Shapiro scandal, would have made it 16 teams on that list. Out of a possible 18, James knows it was a good year, even though while it was happening the Hurricanes themselves weren’t exactly aware of the significance of it all. James said he half-seriously asked one of his staff


members this spring if every Miami team during this academic year had been NCAAbound, and a quick check of the records showed the Hurricanes were closer to that goal than ever before. “When I look at this and see the success we had in putting teams in postseason, and recognizing that number would be bigger if not for the self-imposed situation with football, it has me excited,” James said. “It gives me even more confidence that this program can be one of the truly special ones in college athletics.”

Even though the summer is now in full swing, it still might be considered a somewhat unnerving time for Miami athletics. There’s plenty of optimism about what awaits this fall, especially with football – which, if not for the self-imposed ban, would have been in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game last season – expected to be in the mix for the ACC title. By the time the Hurricanes open camp, there is a chance that the Shapiro scandal might essentially be a thing of the past.


Smith to Detroit, while Hawks add 2 forwards The ASSOCIATED PRESS

Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard dunks during the first half against the Utah Jazz in Los Angeles on Jan. 25. Howard said late Friday night he would sign with the Houston Rockets.

Howard turns Rockets into contenders By KRISTIE RIEKEN The Associated Press HOUSTON – Last offseason, the Houston Rockets were an afterthought, a young team with little star power. Now, after trading for James Harden just before this past season and adding Dwight Howard on Friday, Houston is suddenly primed to contend sooner than almost anybody expected. Still, Houston general manager Daryl Morey knows nabbing Howard is only the first step in a long process for his team. “We haven’t accomplished anything yet, but we’re putting something pretty cool together, I think,” Morey said in an interview with Comcast SportsNet Houston. Howard is the Rockets’ latest superstar center, following Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon and eight-time AllStar Yao Ming. They reached the playoffs for the first time since 2009 this season and battled back from a 3-0 deficit before being eliminated by the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 6. Their return to the postseason showed they have plenty of speed and long-range scoring power with Harden, Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons. Omer Asik was a solid

rebounder in the playoff run and averaged 12.3 points in the series, but it was clear that the team needed a more potent scoring threat inside. The addition of Howard gives them just that, as the 6-foot-11 star has averaged more than 18 points and almost 13 rebounds in his nineyear career. His one season in Los Angeles was filled with unrest, including what many believed to be a less than positive relationship with Kobe Bryant. Bryant unfollowed Howard on Twitter on Friday night after he announced his decision to join the Rockets with a tweet. It was the end of a short tenure with the Lakers in which Howard averaged 17 points and almost 11 rebounds in the playoffs, where the injury-riddled team was swept by the San Antonio Spurs in the first round. Morey believes his team offers many benefits to the 27-year-old center, but one thing sealed the deal. “I think Dwight’s in a great place in his career,” Morey said in the television interview. “He’s focused on winning and we gave him the best chance to win. It’s that simple.” Howard can’t officially sign until July 10 when next

Shaq says LA spotlight too bright for Howard DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Shaquille O’Neal says the Los Angeles spotlight was too bright for Dwight Howard. Speaking at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, Shaq hammered his former colleague as if they were battling in the post. O’Neal opened his mouth agape when asked about Howard, who chose to leave the Lakers for the Houston Rockets late Friday, and joked about cheering on Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Danica Patrick in Saturday’s race. A few seconds later, he threw an elbow Howard’s way. “It was expected,” Shaq said. “We’ve all been in LA, and not a whole lot of people can handle being under the bright lights. Everybody wants to do it, but when you get there, there are certain pressures. I think it was a safe move for him to go to a little town like Houston. That’s right, little town. I said it.”

– The Associated Press season’s salary cap has been set. The Rockets can pay him $88 million over a four-year contract – $30 million less than what Los Angeles could have given him. But in Houston, Howard saw the chance to join Harden

and boost this up-and-coming team. Harden blossomed in his first year with the Rockets, going from stellar sixth man with the Thunder to Houston’s top player. He averaged 25.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.8 steals, setting career highs in each category. After Howard made his decision Friday night, Harden tweeted: “Houston we have lift off!!,” and posted a photo to Instagram of him and his newest teammate together. “No matter how you look at it we thought it was a pretty straightforward choice,” Morey said on Comcast. “To Dwight’s credit he did turn down a pretty significant amount of money to come to the Rockets. It shows his mindset that he’s really ready to take that next step. If you look at best players, James Harden is the best player out there that he could join.” But Harden certainly isn’t Houston’s only weapon. The Rockets signed Lin last season to run their offense and they were also buoyed by the development of Parsons, a second-round pick in 2011. Parsons averaged 15.5 points last season and was even better in the playoffs when Lin was ailing, averaging 18.2 points against the Thunder.

The Atlanta Hawks have agreed to contracts with freeagent forwards Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll, continuing their makeover under general manager Danny Ferry. Two people close to the negotiations confirmed the deals for Millsap and Carroll, who were teammates on the Utah Jazz last season. The Josh Smith people spoke to The Associated Press on Saturday on condition of anonymity because contracts cannot become official until Wednesday when the NBA’s free agency moratorium ends. The addition of Millsap and Carroll will help make up for the loss of Josh Smith, who has agreed to a $54 million, four-year contract with the Detroit Pistons, according to a person familiar with the deal. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the agreement has not been announced. Smith averaged a teamhigh 17.5 points last season for his hometown Hawks, who drafted him No. 17 overall out of high school in 2004. The 6-foot-9, 225-pound small forward also averaged 8.4 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.8 blocks and 1.2 steals. The deals for Millsap and Carroll were struck late Friday night, after free agent Dwight Howard informed the Hawks he was going to go elsewhere. Howard later went to Twitter to announce he was headed to the Houston Rockets.

Kings, Landry agree to 4-year, $26 million deal: Carl Landry believes his second stint with the Sacramento Kings will be better – and last longer – than his first time around. With an aggressive new regime in place, Landry and the Kings agreed to a four-


year deal worth at least $26 million that will bring the power forward back to California’s capital city. Landry’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, said that final details of the contract were still being worked out and it could reach $27 million over the life of the deal. He said Landry is excited to return to Sacramento under new owner Vivek Ranadive, who bought the franchise from the Maloof family in May. Teams must wait until July 10 to announce any moves during the NBA’s free agency period.

Cavs, Jarrett Jack agree to 4-year deal: At Cleveland, a person familiar with the negotiations says the Cleveland Cavaliers and free-agent guard Jarrett Jack have agreed to a four-year contract. The person, who spoke to The Associated Press on Saturday on condition of anonymity because the agreement has not yet been announced, says Jack’s deal is worth $25 million and includes a team option in the final year. The 29-year-old Jack averaged 12.9 points and 5.6 assists this season for Golden State. The Warriors renounced their rights on Jack, a restricted free agent, earlier this week.

Blazers sign Dorell Wright: At Portland, Ore., a person close to the negotiations says that the Portland Trail Blazers have agreed to a contract with free agent guard Dorell Wright, who played last season with the Philadelphia 76ers. Wright, a nine-year NBA veteran, averaged 9.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists off the bench for the Sixers last season. He was traded to Philadelphia from Golden State last July.

Jazz sign picks Burke, Gobert: At Salt Lake City, the Utah Jazz have signed draft picks Trey Burke and Rudy Gobert. Terms of both contracts were not released on Saturday.

Agent: 3 teams interested in veteran Jagr By LARRY LAGE The Associated Press Jaromir Jagr wants to extend his NHL career, and his agent said some teams are “very interested” in his 41-year-old client. Jagr might have to wait a while, and the league’s active scoring leader might not be the only free agent without a new job this weekend. “He definitely still wants to play and there is some interest in him,” Jagr’s agent, Petr Svoboda, told The Associated Press on Saturday afternoon. “I think it’s going to take some time, but you never know for sure because there are three teams that are very interested.” Svoboda declined to say which teams wanted to sign Jagr. J.P. Barry, who represents two of the top free agents

available, Daniel Cleary and Mason Raymond, also expected a relatively slower pace of moves around the league. “We’ve touched based with several teams and many of them are being patient at this point,” Barry said Saturday. “We’ve got options for [Cleary and Raymond], but Jaromir Jagr we’re in a holding pattern with each of them because I think everyone is taking a breath this weekend. “I’ve been through about 15 of these, and there is always a frenzy of moves then a pause to reassess and then a second wave. It’s tough to predict when that second wave will happen, so we’re always on call when teams are ready.” Day 1 of the free agen-

cy flurry included dozens of deals, including Jarome Iginla signing a one-year deal worth as much as $6 million with Boston, which almost acquired the six-time All-Star last season when Pittsburgh did from Calgary. Nathan Horton cashed in on his second strong postseason performance for the Bruins with a $37.1 million, seven-year contract in Columbus. Daniel Alfredsson made perhaps the most surprising move. The 40-year-old forward is taking what might be his last shot at winning a Stanley Cup with the Detroit Red Wings, jilting the Ottawa Senators after being the face of the franchise. The Senators tried to bounce back by making a bold trade for Anaheim forward Bobby Ryan in exchange for a pair of promising players and a first-round draft pick.

Bartoli captures first slam The ASSOCIATED PRESS LONDON – Ever since she was a kid, practicing until midnight with her father, Marion Bartoli went about playing tennis her own way. The two-handed strokes for backhands, forehands, even volleys. The hopping in place and practice swings between points, which help her focus. The unusual setup for serves – no ball-bouncing, arms crossed, right wrist resting on her left thumb before the toss. Whatever works, right? This unique Wimbledon, appropriately enough, produced a unique champion in the ambidextrous Bartoli, the 15th-seeded Frenchwoman who won her first Grand Slam title by beating 23rd-seeded Sabine Lisicki of Germany, 6-1, 6-4, Saturday in an error-filled, one-sided final that was far from a classic. “It’s always been a part of my personality to be different. I think being just like the other one is kind of boring. I really embrace the fact of being a bit different and doing something that not everyone is,” said the 28-year-old Bartoli, who plays tennis right-handed but signs autographs with her left. “I actually love that part of my game, being able to have something different.” She certainly stands alone. This was Bartoli’s 47th Grand Slam tournament, the most ever played by a woman before earning a championship. She is the only woman in the 45-year Open era to win Wimbledon playing two-fisted shots off both wings (Monica Seles, Bartoli’s inspiration for that unusual style, collected her nine major titles elsewhere). Until Saturday, it had been more than 1½ years since Bartoli won a tournament at any level. Until these last two weeks, Bartoli’s record in 2013 was 14-12, and she had failed to

Women’s doubles final: No. 8 Hsieh Su-wei of Taiwan and Peng Shuai of China beat No. 12 Ashleigh Barty and Casey Dellacqua of Australia 7-6 (1), 6-1 to win their first Grand Slam title. Stat of the day: 47 – Number of Grand Slam tournaments Bartoli has entered, the most by a woman before winning one. Jana Novotna won Wimbledon in 1998 in her 45th appearance at a major tournament. Men’s final Sunday: No. 1 Novak Djokovic of Serbia vs. No. 2 Andy Murray of Britain.

– The Associated Press make it past the quarterfinals anywhere. Asked to explain how she went from that sort of mediocre season to winning seven matches in a row at Wimbledon, never dropping a set, Bartoli briefly closed her eyes, then laughed heartily.

“Well,” Bartoli said, spreading her arms wide, “that’s me!” Unlike Lisicki, a first-time major finalist who was admittedly overwhelmed by the occasion and teared up in the second set, Bartoli already had been on this stage, with the same stakes. Back in 2007, Bartoli won only five games during a two-set loss to Venus Williams in the Wimbledon final. “I know how it feels, Sabine,” Bartoli said during the on-court trophy ceremony. “And I’m sure, believe me, you’ll be there one more time. I have no doubt about it.”

Bob, Mike wrap up ‘Bryan Slam’: At London, the Bryan brothers got big air at Wimbledon. Yes, there was a little more room than usual between their feet and the ground for their latest version of the “Bryan Bump” – the famed chest bump they use to celebrate their victories – because of what that victory meant. Their 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 win over Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo wrapped up the Bryan Slam, making the 35-year-old identical twins from California the first men’s doubles team in the history of Openera tennis to hold all four major titles at the same time.

“A community should be a better place because of its businesses.” Eric Schroeder, owner of Mortgage Capital Group Inc.

Strategies to optimize your online identity With the advent of electronic résumés and the ability to search the Internet, companies and recruiters are becoming more proactive in searching out top candidates, rather than waiting for good candidates to contact them. Ford R. Myers, career coach, speaker and author of “Get The Job You Want, Even When No One’s Hiring,” (John Wiley & Sons, www., says, “Having a strong web presence is a great way to differentiate yourself. You’ll stand-out as a tech-savvy, smart self-marketer.” Myers suggests implementing the following six strategies to optimize your online identity: 1. Own your name. Register a domain in your own name – www. From here, you can build a website, establish an online career portfolio or create a blog, all of which will be easily searchable by your name. 2. Write your way to the top. Develop a professional career website that includes your professional biography, accomplishment stories, and other credentials. A job search blog can act as an online journal where you share your professional expertise, opinions and resources. 3. Upgrade your résumé to the online world. Internet technology enables your career management strategy to include a visual and engaging portfolio about your career. Include links to companies for which you’ve worked, significant career achievements, your articles, presentations, case studies, recommendations, references and awards. 4. Move your contact list online. Use Facebook or LinkedIn to establish a visible and searchable professional profile. Once this is done, leverage these social media websites to expand your network, build more connections, and increase your visibility. 5. Keep your online identity clean. Remain constantly vigilant about what you do and say that could end up on the Internet. In today’s world, people are always listening and cameras are always on, so beware. 6. Track your online identity. Set up a “Google Alert” to notify you each time your name is featured on the Internet. Monitor what is being said or written about you, and track any changes in your online identity. “Your online identity is a form of capital, much like your intellectual capital and financial capital. To that end, it can be grown slowly and steadily over time, which will eventually produce the positive results you want,” Myers said. While Facebook and other social networking sites can be powerful tools in your job search, beware of content that condemns. According to a CareerBuilder survey released last week, 39 percent of hiring managers use social networking sites to research job candidates, up from 37 percent last year. Forty-three percent of those hiring managers say they have found information that has caused them not to hire a candidate, up 9 percentage points from 2012. What turns off employers the most? • Candidate posted provocative/ inappropriate photos/information – 50 percent. • There was information about candidate drinking or using drugs – 48 percent. • Candidate bad mouthed previous employer – 33 percent. • Candidate had poor communication skills – 30 percent. • Candidate made discriminatory comments related to race, gender, religion, etc. – 28 percent. • Candidate lied about qualifications – 24 percent.

Bennett Schwontkowski, founder and president of Corporate Balloons & Promotions, prepares the Mortgage Capital Group’s Uplift Foundation hot-air balloon in Crystal Lake.

Uplifting fundraisers Crystal Lake business organizes balloon rides for charities By BRETT ROWLAND CRYSTAL LAKE – A Crystal Lake business owner has come up with a high-flying way to give back to the community. Mortgage Capital Group Inc. is using a hot-air balloon to help charity organizations raise money. Owner Eric Schroeder, 34, started the MCG Uplift Foundation two months ago as a vehicle for the residential real estate brokerage and its employees to support local nonprofits. A portion of each mortgage deal the company makes will go to the foundation, which will distribute the money quarterly to local charities selected by employees. “For a business to actually be successful and complete the circle, it has to be able to give back to the community that supports it,” Schroeder said. “A community should be a better place because of its businesses.” This summer, Schroeder rented a hot-air balloon to draw attention to the foundation. He also lets nonprofit groups auction off balloon rides to raise money. The minimum bid is $1,100, but the foundation will donate money to the organization even if the reserve isn’t met. The foundation covers the cost of the balloon flights. The balloon also serves as a marketing tool for Mortgage Capital Group, which Schroeder started in December 2007. Corporate Balloons & Promotions operates the balloon rides. “I grew up in Crystal Lake watching hot-air balloons fly over all the time,” said Schroeder, a Crystal Lake South High School graduate. “I’ve always been fascinated by them and that emotion they create.” The balloon could be a common site over Crystal Lake and southern McHenry County this summer as the foundation raises money for charity groups. Money raised through the foundation goes to groups such as Algonquin Red Dress Run, Animal House Shelter in Huntley, Crystal Lake South Gators Baseball, It’s All

Five steps to take in devising an estate plan When it comes to estate planning, procrastinating is easy. The task of getting your house in order can seem daunting and the topic uncomfortable. In fact, while the majority of Americans believe that all adults should have an estate plan, only 44 percent have actually created one, according to a 2011 LexisNexis survey. Unplanned estates may be left to wind their way through probate court, leaving state law to determine the disposition of your assets. The time to devise an estate plan is now, if you haven’t already. Many people equate estate plans with wills but a well-thought-out structure involves much more. There are many tools, such as living trusts and financial and health care powers of attorney, that can help trusted professionals and family members manage your affairs if you cannot. Planning needn’t be stressful, and the results often confer the comfort given that comes from knowing your assets will be distributed in an orderly way. Here are five steps to help you create an estate plan to accomplish that goal: 1. Work with an experienced estate planning attorney. It takes specialized expertise to create a

plan that includes all the necessary elements and meets your specific needs. A solid estate plan will likely consist of several documents, which may include the following: • A will, which states how individually-owned assets are to be distributed upon death. • A living will, which communicates your wishes regarding lifeprolonging medical treatments. • Powers of attorney, which designate another individual to handle financial or health care matters if you are incapacitated. • Revocable trusts, which can be useful in avoiding the probate process in states where probate is burdensome, and can be altered or canceled according to your wishes. Creating a well-designed plan will require input from both your attorney and your financial adviser. Your financial adviser may be able provide some options for legal assistance, if you do not yet have an estate planning attorney. You want to make sure your estate planning attorney’s skill level is commensurate with the complexity of your plan. 2. Assess your assets. Before drafting your estate plan, ask your financial adviser to prepare a finan-

Mattress retail store Sleepy’s opens in CL By BRETT ROWLAND CRYSTAL LAKE – East Coast mattress retailer Sleepy’s recently opened 10 stores in the Chicago area, including one in Crystal Lake, as it expands into the Midwest market for the first time. Sleepy’s opened last week at 4801 Route 14, in the shopping center that also contains Men’s Wearhouse, Outback Steakhouse and Chuck E. Cheese’s. The 9,000-squarefoot Crystal Lake store will have four to five employees, said Sam Khan, Sleepy’s regional vice president. “Crystal Lake is a growing area and a great shopping area,” he said. “We’re excited

to be a part of the community.” The chain also opened stores in Des Plaines, Bannockburn, Batavia, Glenview, Bolingbrook, Evergreen Park, and Chicago. Its flagship store is at 5300 N. Broadway in Chicago. Sleepy’s is a privatelyowned, fourth-generation company with more 900 retail stores. The company is entering new markets in the Chicago area and investing millions in marketing and advertising, officials said. Initially, the company will fill about 150 positions in sales, management, delivery and warehousing. Khan said more stores are planned to follow the first 10, which opened June 28.

LOCAL FINANCE Patrick S. O’Connor cial net worth statement for you. This will give you a clear sense of what you are working with. Also, review your beneficiaries listed on critical documents such as life insurance policies and retirement plans. Beneficiary designations determine how those assets will be distributed, so you want the named beneficiaries to reflect, and not undermine, your intentions. 3. Define your goals. An estate plan is also your opportunity to direct how your wealth will be passed on to the next generation. You want to think as much about how you want to pass your assets, outright to your heirs or distributed through a trust, as you do the amount that each person should get. For instance, leaving a large sum to a child or young adult may create long-term issues if the child lacks the skills or maturity to manage such a windfall. Ask your financial adviser about trusts that might be established to control the distribution of inherited funds.

If you want to bequeath money to a charity, ask your financial adviser and estate planning attorney about the many charitable giving strategies that are available. They can offer guidance on choosing the technique that best fits your philanthropic goals. 4. Determine your tax liability. Under the “fiscal cliff” agreement enacted in early 2013, individual estates worth $5.25 million or less, and double that amount for married couples, can avoid federal estate taxes. Amounts that exceed the exclusion amount are taxed at a rate of 40 percent. Work with your financial adviser to determine your current estate tax liability and project any future liability. Consider the impact those taxes might have on how you wish to eventually pass your assets on to your family. The planning will be different, and more sophisticated, if you’re planning for a tax bill. 5. Update your plan. Life is about change, so it’s crucial to make sure your instructions are always current. That means updating your estate plan whenever you experience a major life event – a new baby, a marriage, a divorce. Otherwise, not only will your plan fail to contem-

plate new circumstances the way you want, but it could also increase the potential for outside challenges, such as those from disgruntled family members. Ambiguity and conflicts about your intentions could have a disastrous impact on your family, so preventing them is typically well worth the investment of time and money. If you don’t have a comprehensive estate plan in place, you’re leaving it to state law and the courts to decide your legacy for you. Wells Fargo Advisors and its affiliates do not provide legal or tax advice. Any estate plan should be reviewed by an attorney who specializes in estate planning and is licensed to practice law in your state.

Her blessing was to be a blessing Dear Dave,

Dear Dave,

My mom died a few years ago, and she left me an inheritance of $60,000 in stock. She was always investing and saving money. I could sell this and be debt-free while still having plenty left over, but I feel like I’ll lose a part of her if I do this. Do you have any advice?

– David

Dear David, I didn’t know your mom, but from what you’ve told me, it sounds like she was a pretty smart and responsible lady. I don’t visualize her as the kind of person who would’ve said, “I’m going to leave you this stock. Always keep it and never cash it out, no matter what happens.” A gift like this is someone wanting to bless another person with some of the good they accomplished in this world. It’s your mom’s way

DAVE SAYS Dave Ramsey of giving you an opportunity to have a better life. In my mind, the best way for you to have a better life is to use the money to become debt-free then use the cash that used to go toward debt payment to invest. I know you loved your mom, but I think you’ve given this stock more power than she gave it. You’ve gotten her blessing, and that was to be a blessing to you. You know, you can be a blessing to others in lots of different ways. She just accomplished it with the stock. Honor your mom and go be debt-free today. The time is now!

– Dave

My husband and I are in our 60s, and we don’t have long-term care insurance. It would cost us $8,000 a year at this point, and our annual income is $200,000. Do you think we should get this type of coverage?

– Toni

Dear Toni, I’m a strong proponent of long-term care insurance once a person turns 60. Prior to that age you have less than a one percent chance of spending time in a nursing home, so I wouldn’t spend a dime on it until then. A lot of agents and companies try to sell long-term care insurance to people who are 40 or 50 years old, and I just don’t believe in that stuff. But once you hit age 60, your chances of using it increase almost daily. At that point, it’s a smart buy, and you’ll

get a great return on the investment. Eight thousand dollars annually is a lot of money, but nursing home costs can run $50,000 a year. My advice, Toni, is to buy long-term care insurance. I believe in having this type of coverage, even if you can afford to pay for care out of pocket. It takes a lot of stress and worry out of growing older. Most ladies outlive their husbands, and a frequent scenario is that the man goes into the nursing home and drains the nest egg to pay for everything. Of course, this can happen the other way around, but I’m sure neither of you wants to leave the other in a bad situation.

Mid-year mutual fund review: Bond funds sink By STAN CHOE AP Business Writer NEW YORK – Brace yourself. If you have money in a bond mutual fund, you’re likely to feel some pain when you open your mid-year account statement. After years of steady returns, many bond mutual funds have suffered losses this year. Some of the sharpest drops are in funds that buy Treasury bonds, and it could be a rude awakening for investors lulled into thinking Treasurys were among the safest investments. A look at how other mutual-fund categories performed during the first half of 2013 shows other clear losers, as well as winners. Mid-year is often a time when investors check on their portfolios, but it’s important to only make adjustments that are in line with your investment goals.

“While performance can give you a guide as to how a fund or ETF has done, it’s not gospel,” says Todd Rosenbluth, director of ETF and mutual fund research at S&P Capital IQ. “You should not chase performance. You should use it as one of the tools to help you sort through the investment universe.” Among the biggest losers of the first half of 2013: mutual funds that own long-term government bonds, like 30year Treasurys. They lost an average of 10 percent through Wednesday, according to Morningstar. That follows returns for the category of 3.9 percent in 2012, 32.9 percent in 2011 and 11.7 percent in 2010. Demand for bonds has declined because of concerns that the Federal Reserve may ease up on its bond-buying economic stimulus program. Chairman Ben Bernanke said that the central bank may

slow its purchases later this year and halt them altogether by mid-2014. The drop in demand has forced prices down for bonds. The price decline has been more than enough to wipe out the regular interest payments that bonds make. When a bond’s price falls, its yield rises, and a 30-year Treasury bond yielded 3.57 percent on Wednesday. That’s up from a low of 2.83 percent on May 1. Long-term bond funds are hurt even more by interest rate increases than short- or intermediate-term bond funds. That’s because 30-year bonds are locked into the lower rates for longer periods, making them less attractive. Intermediate-term government bond mutual funds have lost 3.1 percent so far this year, and shortterm government bond funds have lost 1.1 percent, fractions of the losses for long-term government bond funds.

Announcing the Legendary Premier Cheer Travel Team!

Health-care stock funds have been a big winner. The group returned 20.9 percent, more than any other category. Hospital stocks have risen on expectations that the health care overhaul will mean more patients have insurance coverage, leading to bigger profits. Biotechnology stocks, meanwhile, have surged on excitement about drugs in development. Emerging-market funds have been a big loser. Funds that invest in stocks or bonds from China, Indonesia and other developing economies have been hit hard by worries about a pullback by the Federal Reserve. Emerging-market funds also have been hurt by worries about slowing economic growth in China. Emerging-market stock mutual funds lost 10.2 percent in 2013 through Wednesday, while emerging-market bond funds fell 8.5 percent.

5 Things You Should Never Say at Work By Catherine Conlan Monster Contributing Writer

vent it from happening again.

Saying certain thing at work can give others the wrong idea about you and your motives, so be aware of how your words come across to others. Here are five career killers.

This seems like it could be helpful, but Taylor warns that it’s not. “Falling on your sword brings you into a place of shame,” she says. Being the martyr and taking everything on yourself can set you up for future blame, as well as plant the impression that you are incompetent. Accept the responsibility for things only if that responsibility is truly yours. “You can apologize for a situation that someone is in,” Taylor says, adding that doing so can be effective in moving the focus away from who’s at fault and onto finding solutions.

you want to change, rather than relying on emotional appeal.

“It’s all my fault.” “That’s not my job.”

“It’s all your fault.” This one is fairly obvious -- direct blame never looks good. “What people are saying is ‘I’ve got to cover my rear end,’” says Barb Krantz Taylor, principal consultant at The Bailey Group in Minneapolis. And that can make you look insecure, reluctant to take responsibility, or even a tyrant. “Leaders need self-management, and if I feel angry, I need to find ways to deal with it,” Taylor says. Lashing out and blaming others not only doesn’t solve the problem at hand, it wrecks business relationships and can seriously hurt your career. Instead, focus on solving the problem and then, when things are quieter, finding out how to pre-

“It’s not fair.” Whether this is true or not, this is one of the most unhelpful things you can say at work. No matter how you say it, it’s going to come across as whining. And the answer you’re likely to get can be something along the lines of “You’re right -- so what?” Instead, find more concrete, factbased objections to something

In today’s work environment, employees are often asked to go above and beyond as a matter of routine. “That’s not my job” can make you look stubborn, lazy and generally uninterested in the company’s success. Instead, identify the problem you have with the task at hand -- is it something you truly don’t have time for? Is it something that someone else would do better? In addition, Taylor recommends seeing things from the other person’s perspective. “If we can be curious about expectations, we can better manage relationships we have with people,” she says. There are instances where a jurisdictional or work agreement may make something truly not your job, but if this is not the case, find a better way to turn down extra projects.

“Don’t tell so-and-so, but...” Office politics can be devastating. While you may be involved

TODAY - A number of interesting developments might be in store for you in the year ahead, but none of them are apt to pertain to your work or career. That area of your life will be relatively stable, with few surprises. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Go ahead and trust some of your hunches. Just don’t go overboard and take every thought you get as gospel. Don’t forget to use your brains as well. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- One of your greatest possibilities for gain will stem from some kind of collective endeavor. Remember,

there is strength in union. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- An impulsive decision could turn out to haunt you down the line. Take time to analyze all your options, so that future problems don’t erupt. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Although it might take you extra time to get your act together, once you establish some plans and get going on them, you’ll be both industrious and productive. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You should be quite adept at matters that require a quick wit and sharp mental agility. These

attributes are likely to be most effective in social involvements. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -You’re likely to fare much better acting alone when it comes to financial or commercial endeavors. If you must include associates, be sure you’re the one running the show. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Complicated, theoretical involvements are your forte. You have the ability to visualize and grasp all the complex, pertinent facts, even if they appear fuzzy to others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Al-

though financial trends are rather encouraging, you’re not likely to benefit from any venture that is too risky. If you’re smart, you’ll avoid taking chances. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Even if most people greet you with pleasure, a few close relatives might not be so welcoming. Don’t get upset -- consider the source. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your possibilities for success improve when you do what needs doing without diverting too much energy to side issues. Give full attention to the job at hand.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- When commingling with friends, don’t demand that they do things your way, even if it truly is best. Give them some room. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Although you’re in a good achievement cycle, you still might not get everything done. There’s a chance that you could slack off just enough to drop the ball.

An eagle does the butterfly T

here are a lot of birds that can swim, but the bald eagle isn’t supposed to be one of them. Still, that is what this one was doing in Perrault Lake in the middle of Ontario, hundreds of yards from shore last week when my buddy Jim and I were up there for our annual fishing trip. I’m no expert, but the eagle looked to be doing an awkward version of the butterfly stroke, and although eagles are supposed to look regal at all times, this wasn’t one of those times. Eagles spend a lot of their time around water, but they usually try to stay somewhere above it. They will hunt unsuspecting fish that are swimming near the surface, but they always pluck their prey regally from the surface without getting more than their feet wet. They will then turn the fish to face head-on into the wind to reduce wind resistance. All the while looking regal. Some species of fish-hunting birds will take a splashy plunge from the air– ospreys, pelicans and kingfishers – and others will even dive under and swim after their meals – cormorants, loons, and mergansers. But eagles? No way. That’s why Jim and I were a bit alarmed to see this hapless eagle flopping less-than-regally in the water where it had no business being. We figured it might have made a dive for a meal and miscalculated its angle of descent. Or maybe it had snagged a fish so big it had been pulled under and gotten its feathers waterlogged. You can be regal and still have plenty of room for stupid, I guess. Nearby, atop a tall dead pine at the shoreline of a rocky island, the female eagle sat on a nest the size of a living room

love seat. She called out to her struggling mate, and though it is hard to translate anything an eagle says, her “Skr-e-e-e” sounded plaintive to Jim and me. We fired up our outboard motor and raced toward the floundering eagle, a quarter-mile away. On the way, we debated what we would do when we got there. We had a fish net in the boat, but although I could call up plenty of successful mental images of netting a wet eagle, every subsequent image was dark, disturbing and punctuated with plenty of pain and screaming. Once you’ve netted him, how do you remove a thoroughly saturated and surly eagle to set him free? And once free, who is to say eagles express gratitude in the kind of socially acceptable way we might hope of them? I have gotten this far in life without any body piercings, and I didn’t relish starting down that road with a shrieking fly-by to the forehead. No, the net was looking like a bad idea. We had a pair of canoe paddles in the boat. Maybe we could nudge the eagle toward shore? But if a netted eagle might turn testy, what could you expect of one who finally reaches dry land after being poked and prodded for a few hundred sloshy yards? Besides, most of the sticks in the eagles’ nest were as long and thick as our paddles were. I would guess that by now the eagles were more adept at wielding a lethal length of stick than any members of the Chicago Blackhawks were. So I wasn’t a big fan of the paddle idea, either. By now we were no more than 30 or 40 yards away, and although our boat had

made good headway toward the scene of the rescue, the specific details of our rescue plan were still at anchor. The eagle splashed all the harder as we approached. He didn’t look relieved to see us. And then, to our surprise, he lifted gently off the water, fluffed his wings and tail a bit, and soared to the top of a pine on the nearest shore. He glowered at us as we motored up to where he had been floundering, and there we saw what he had been clutching – a dead northern pike, maybe 8 or 10 pounds, at least as much as the eagle would weigh. That eagle hadn’t been drowning at all. In fact, he was never in any sort of peril. He was simply dragging a package containing a week’s worth of meals toward shore, where he could pull it apart at his leisure and deliver the goods to his mate and babies on the island. Across the lake, the female eagle called. It seemed to me she was saying, “Well, are you bringing dinner home or not?” The male eagle skre-e-e-d back to her. “I’ll be a little late,” I think he said. “I didn’t plan on these two idiots getting in the way.” Jim swung the tiller to the side and goosed the throttle. We raced off, having learned – not for the first time – that our neighbors in the natural world usually know what they’re doing, even if we don’t. Every regal court has its fools, I guess.

Honey-Orange Glazed Chicken Thighs

By DEAN FOSDICK The Associated Press

Honey sweetens orange chicken By BONNIE S. BENWICK The Washington Post Chicken thighs minus skin and bone are mighty homely. This preparation doesn’t especially improve their appearance, unless you are charmed by the sight of judiciously applied sesame seeds. Nonetheless, the dish marries universally appreciated flavors and pantry-ready ingredients. Use an assertively flavored honey here, such as buckwheat, amber wildflower or apple blossom. Serve over a bed of greens or your favorite cooked grain.

Honey-Orange Glazed Chicken Thighs 4 servings Generous 1 pound (6 to 8) boneless, skinless chicken thighs Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 2 cloves garlic 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1/4 cup fresh orange juice 2 tablespoons honey (see headnote)

2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce or tamari Toasted/roasted sesame seeds, for garnish Trim and discard all visible fat from the chicken; pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken lightly with salt and pepper. Cut the garlic into thin slices. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and stir-fry for about 15 seconds, making sure it browns lightly but does not burn. Increase the heat to medium-high; add the chicken thighs and cook undisturbed for 5 minutes, then turn them over and cook for about 4 minutes or until nicely browned. Stir in the orange juice and honey; once the liquid starts to boil, add the soy sauce or tamari and increase the heat to high. Cook for 2 or 3 minutes, until the liquid in the skillet has reduced to a saucy glaze. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Serve warm.

Culinary herbs are among the hottest trends in gardening. They also are popular among families who preserve fresh foods for later use. Nearly 70 percent of home canners are growing herbs, second only to tomatoes, said Lauren Devine-Hager, a product research and test-kitchen scientist with Jarden Home Brands, which manufactures the classic Ball home-canning Mason jars. “At least a third of them dry and store their herbs,” she said. Jarden is paying more attention to that fast-emerging market by developing new recipes, new methods of preservation, and new products for short- and long-term storage, Devine-Hager said. “When we ask people what herbs they’re growing, they tell us No. 1 is basil, followed by chives, cilantro and dill,” she said. “These are all great for adding flavor to meals without using much if any salt.” People also are using herbs in ways they haven’t traditionally been used, said Daniel Gasteiger, author of “Yes You Can! And Freeze and Dry It, Too” (Cool Springs Press, 2011). Herbal innovation is becoming more noticeable at farmer’s markets, he said. “I’ve seen lots of herb jellies being sold. Fennel, thyme, rosemary and lavender.” Moreover, there has been a surge in the sale of food dehydrators – electrical devices that remove moisture from

Preserving herbs Other things to remember when preserving herbs: • Herbs are among the easiest plants to grow, and can be planted inside, on window sills, or outside in gardens or containers. • Herbs can be grown from seed, making them inexpensive. • Shelf life varies depending upon the type of herb, the amount of moisture removed and storage conditions. • The best time to harvest herbs for drying is just before the flowers first open, when they are in the “bursting bud stage,” the University of Georgia’s National Center for Home Food Preservation says. Gather herbs in the morning to minimize wilting. • Many people dry or freeze fresh herbs, while others add them to vinegars, oils, butters, alcoholic drinks, sea salt, soaps and jellies. Preservation in those cases often involves short-term refrigeration or long-term freezing. • Dry herbs are more concentrated and have a stronger flavor than fresh herbs. “A recipe calling for a tablespoon of fresh basil would call for a half-tablespoon of dried basil,” said Angelica Asbury, a culinary analyst with The Legacy Companies. foods to aid in preservation. “Many people just want to know what’s in their food,” said Meagan Bradley, a vice president of marketing for The Legacy Companies, which markets the Excalibur line of dehydrators. “They’re using their own herbs and dehydrating – making seasonings by grinding it up.”

In Kobi’s

care Mike Krebs –

Kelley Sperry’s seizure-response dog, Kobi, runs to her when called in Huntley. Kobi is a specially trained service dog that assists Sperry when she has seizures by comforting her and alerting her family.

Retriever on alert to warn of seizures, provide comfort


When Kelley Sperry falls, Kobi’s there. He’ll try to ease her to the floor, lick her face, cuddle up by her. The golden retriever brings her medication, drinks when she’s thirsty and anything she’s dropped. But most of all, he brings her security and love. “Before this, Kelley was very depressed,” said her mother, Donna. “He gave her a reason to get up and get moving.” See KOBI, page 5


• KOBI Continued from page 4

| PlanIt Style | Sunday, July 7, 2013 •

The family stayed recently with Kelley’s grandmother, Ann MacVeagh, in Huntley as Kelley recovered from her latest treatment at University of Wisconsin Hospital. With Kobi curled at her feet, Kelley pointed out her leg twitching. “That could turn into a grand mal seizure,” said the 21-year-old, who has epilepsy as a result of Parry-Romberg Syndrome. Rare, the syndrome causes a slow, progressive degeneration of the soft tissue on half of Kelley’s face. She’s had numerous reconstructive facial surgeries over the past six years at the Madison, Wis., hospital. After the surgeries, she stays with MacVeagh in Sun City. “Grandma’s house is like our hub, a place to heal and relax,” Donna said. As a result of the syndrome, Kelley sometimes has three to five of the grand mal seizures, which involve a loss of consciousness, and up to 40 focal, or partial, seizures a day. Since January, Kobi has been there to sense and recognize the seizures and to warn Kelley’s mother. Kelley has fallen out of a shower, shattered a mirror in her bedroom and broken a kitchen cabinet with her shoulder. Kobi knows how to ring doorbells stationed throughout the house to alert others to Kelley’s seizures. If the seizures happen during the night, Donna can move the pillows away from Kelley’s face, talk her through them. Until Kobi, Kelley slept with her mother, about a foot from her face. “It’s that dangerous for her to be alone,” Donna said. “I think the most important thing [Kobi] does is provide another set of eyes for us.” The family, which calls Windsor, Colo., home, wants to raise awareness of how dogs like Kobi can help. They’ve become advocates for the Chelsea Hutchison Foundation, which helped pair Kobi with Kelley. Julie and Doug Hutchison created the foundation after the death of their daughter, Chelsea, who died in her sleep during a seizure at age 16. The couple weren’t aware

Kobi, wears a Domesti-PUPS patch on his service harness. DomestiPUPS is an organization that trains service dogs and their owners. This organization provided training for both Sperry and Kobi. at the time that Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy existed, and now wants to make other parents aware. They’ve also worked with therapy dog groups to link up the dogs to those in need. Many don’t realize how life-changing the dogs can be and often assume service dogs are solely for the blind.

Kelley’s been mistaken as blind so many times she recently bought a T-shirt that says, “No, I’m not blind,” on the front. The back says, “He’s my seizure dog.” She speaks in support of the foundation when needed, shares her story as often as she can. “I just feel so strongly

about her foundation. Her child died and she picked right up . . .” she said of Julie Hutchison. “You would never know. She always has a smile on her face. She works to raise money so others can have dogs. I’m right on board with her. That’s my dream, to be just like her.” The dogs can cost about $20,000. Though efforts are made by nonprofit organizations to help pay for the cost, families must raise as much money as they can. Because Donna gave up her job to care for Kelley, the family wasn’t sure they’d be able to afford a dog. Two of Kelley’s friends, Brittany Perich and Lindsey Wittal, stepped in and hosted a silent auction to help the family raise about $6,000. Kobi is now constantly at Kelley’s side, no matter where she goes. The dog has learned to sense when seizures might be coming and nudges Kelley or leans his body up against her. The epilepsy has become consuming. Typically, those with seizures are told to go to the hospital after they have a few in a day. “If [Kelley] did that, she would live at the hospital,”

Donna said. For Kelley, more than 30 seizures a day trigger a hospital stay. The ambulance has been called to the family’s home at least 30 times. Kelley takes about 30 pills a day, and she’s continually trying new mixes of medications to ease the seizures. As for the syndrome, there’s not much more that can be done. Any further efforts to rebuild the side of her face would require extensive surgery, the actual breaking of bones in her cheeks. “Now seizures are our priority,” Donna said. Kobi, like a toddler, Kelley said, needs to be dressed, played with and trained every day. He wears a sort of vest that tells people of his service dog duties. Although it’s tough some days, she continues to follow her grandmother’s advice to get up every day and put on her makeup, even if she has no plans to see anyone. Sometimes, she admits, she has days when she wants to be alone, when she’d like some space. But she can’t imagine life without Kobi. “I love him to death,” she said, giving him a squeeze. • Sunday, July 7, 2013

6 Camp often means

community service for many youths By LEANNE ITALIE The Associated Press

NEW YORK – Thousands of teens and younger kids do more than the usual crafts, sports and swimming at day and overnight camps, and through special summer programs every year. More camps have built in community service over the last decade or so, from nursing home visits to raising money for cancer research, and dozens of programs offer give-back travel for teens. A survey done by the American Camp Association found 48 percent of responding resident camps include some type of community service. An ACA survey this year found 16 percent added new options in the past two years. Peg Smith, the association’s chief executive officer, said the value of such experiences to kids between the ages of 12 and 17 is great as they sharpen leadership and problem-solving skills while “creativity is at an all-time high.” But not all service opportunities are created equal. With a few key questions, she said, parents can help ensure a quality experience for their kids: • Is it really teaching volunteerism, responsibility and community? “It really should be a social enterprise, when they’re out there doing something with others.” • Does it allow them to work in a new and diverse environment? “Will they get to engage with people that they might not normally have had an opportunity to engage with?” • Does it have a significant impact? Will they be volunteering at local soup kitchens, painting public or park buildings, visiting nursing homes, doing special events to raise money for good causes? Perhaps most important, Smith said: “What does the camp think is being taught? The camp should be able to articulate the value of the

experience.” “Sometimes parents say, ‘Oh, the camp does community service,’ but they don’t ask what the projects are,” she said. “Parents may want to look for something their kids can take into the school year, not just add to that résumé.” When her son was 12, for example, his camp raised money for poor kids in Africa. Counselors from Africa spoke to campers about their own experiences, video and photos were circulated and letters were exchanged. “When he came home, he could articulate why it was important,” Smith said. Some camps offer fullfocus community service programs for teens along with activities that take a day or a week for other campers. Many camps incorporate service into training programs for older teens as a run-up to becoming counselors. But there’s plenty younger kids can do, too, said Smith, and several camp directors, even if it’s just collecting pennies for a cause. “What’s most important to us is that this become not just an adult-driven enterprise that is a requirement but rather that it’s something that is internalized by our young people, who then want to do something more,” said Stephen Wallace, a director at Cape Cod Sea Camps in Brewster, Mass. Every summer, the camp fields a team of staff and older teens who ride in the PanMassachusetts Challenge, a three-day bike-a-thon that crosses the commonwealth to raise money for cancer research and treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The camp raised $130,000 for the cause last summer, he said. “Despite what you hear about adolescence being this time of dysfunction, when you really look at it, many young people are immersed in paying something forward. That’s how we talk about it,” Wallace said.

Daniel Martinez, 16, of Lake in the Hills, stands in front of the flush toilet he helped build for a family of four in Nakuruwai, Fiji. Martinez took a humanitarian expedition this summer through Humanitarian Experience for Youth.

LITH teen makes most of summer Junior does humanitarian work in Fiji By JAMI KUNZER What 16-year-old Daniel Martinez saw this summer will stick with him forever. Soon to be a junior at Huntley High School, the Lake in the Hills teen went to a village in Fiji from June 11 to 27 to build flush toilets for a family living in a house the size of his bedroom. The parents and two boys, ages 3 and 1, were using what was basically a box with thin metal walls, a curtain and a hole in the ground. Martinez worked alongside other volunteers as part of a Humanitarian Experience for Youth,, to give the family more. “They were so grateful,” Martinez said. “It’s amazing what so little can do for people out there. ... Being out there, these people have hardly anything, and they’re so happy to have nothing. To see how much I have ... it’s life-changing. It really made me want to start to work for things.” Martinez was one of a group of 19 youth and three to four adult coaches who took humanitarian expeditions this summer through the nonprofit organization. Numerous organizations host similar outings to third world countries, while others provide community service opportunities to youth in the United States.

In the past decade, more summer camps are building in community service as part of their activities, adding trips to nursing homes, fundraising campaigns and other efforts. Through Humanitarian Experience for Youth, families must pay about $2,000 to $3,000 to cover the cost of the trips. Through fundraising efforts, they can cut down on those costs. Martinez, the son of Vanessa and Fernando Martinez, is the latest in his family to take the trip, with both his older brother and sister going previous years. Once there, teens do some brief sightseeing and bonding before embarking on projects in places such as Belize, Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, Tonga and the Dominican Republic. In Fiji, Martinez worked alongside the father, a carpenter, and a couple of other volunteers to build the flush toilet. They were given all the supplies and instructions and stayed in a small hotel, traveling to the home daily to work from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. “It’s just this little hut basically, about the size of a bedroom,” he said of the family’s home. “They have everything inside, two beds, a couch and right next to it, supplies and clothes. ... “What I learned from it was to enjoy what I have, even the little things.”

Radio host authors book By JAMI KUNZER He’s a familiar voice in McHenry County as he tells the latest news stories on Star 105.5 and Y103.9 FM, but Stew Cohen has so much more to tell. In his new book, “The WYEN Experience,” the Chicago broadcast news veteran shares stories of the days in which FM radio operated without digital technology. Inspired by his time at WYEN Request Radio, a small pioneering radio station once in Des Plaines, the book includes tales of the station’s behind the scenes strategies as well as Cohen’s experiences interviewing celebrities and sports figures. At the station from 1976 to 1979, Cohen worked his way up to news director before moving on. “Most of the people who work in radio worked in stations like this,” said Cohen, now an award-winning news director at the Crystal Lake-based radio stations. “This is a story that takes place before technology changed everything. A lot of people don’t know what life was like. ... People should know about this time in broadcast because it will never be like that again.” A conversation with former co-worker Kenn Heinlein, as well as Cohen’s longtime personal goal to write a book, inspired “The WYEN Experience.” He hunted down as many former co-workers as he could, sharing their stories, as well. Among those on the air at WYEN in the 1970s were Garry Meier of WGN AM 720, Bob Roberts of WBBM AM 780 and Mike Roberts of WTMX 101.9. The station stumbled in the 1980s and was sold a few years later. “Yet thousands of people listened to WYEN and enjoyed its music and announcers. The station mirrored the 1970s. I’m hoping through this book to give life to the station and the times,” Cohen writes in the book’s preface. The book also includes photographs from those days, most of which were provided by Heinlein. Heinlein and his son, Dan, also provided an interview with his mother-in-law, Carol Walters, who was married to the late Ed Walters, the owner of the radio station. “I worked, really, the Golden Years of the station,” Cohen said. “By ’76, it was really going great guns.” Writing the book over several years, Cohen realized after falling asleep at the keyboard nightly that he’d have to work on it on the weekends. He’d get up at 4 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays to work on the book for several hours. He shares some of his personal story, beginning with his days in high school when he feared public speaking, hiding out in the school bathroom to avoid his

But it took numerous failed attempts and audible, hard on-air swallows to get him where he is today. He struggled with an overwhelming lack of confidence, he said. “I was turned down over and over again,” he said of his early attempts at on-air jobs. He’d read out loud to himself continuously to improve. Even when he finally landed a job, he said it took him awhile to learn to be a good listener. And technological mishaps didn’t help, such as the time he thought he’d taped an entire interview with Shirley Temple Jones, only to find out the tape had quit after 15 to 20 seconds.

He scrambled to throw something together to play on the air with fragments of her voice. “It didn’t make any sense, but I had to prove I was there,” he said. While at WYEN, he also interviewed Judy Tenuta, an aspiring comedian at the time, and took her on a pseudo date to a radio mixer. He said he chickened out when it came to officially asking her out on a real date. Other celebrity interviews included Tom Bosley, Walter Peyton, Bobby Riggs and Mark Spitz. Cohen also has covered the John Wayne Gacy murders and arrest, among other major news stories. “It was only two and a half years, but I did a lot in those two and a half years,” he said.

Redecorate your home without overspending

If you’re strapped and need to stagger payments, instead of charging all at once on your credit card, check out financing deals from various retailers. Most furniture stores have some kind of interest-free financing deal going most of the time. Just remember to keep up with the monthly payments or else you will wind up paying heavy-duty interest and sometimes extra fees.




ith the housing recovery gaining steam, Americans have more incentives to paint up, touch up and otherwise redecorate their homes. But there’s no need to spend willy-nilly. From finding treasures on to taking advantage of new offerings at department stores and discounters, there are plenty of ways to make your home more stylish on the cheap. “There’s no excuse for an undecorated home on any budget,” said Candace Corlett, president of WSL Strategic Retail, a retail consultancy. “Home has as much retail selection as fashion. And you can get a lot of buys.” Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest retailer, has expanded this year its assortment of window treatments like blinds, and is also bolstering offerings on rugs, decorative pillows, bathroom accessories and patio furniture. Meanwhile, Target Corp., known for its cheap chic home designs, has launched a full line for the new store brand called Threshold, which offers a variety of goods from dinnerware sets to sheets and towels. Here are six tips for decorating your home.




You don’t need the real thing. If you don’t have money to spend on a granite backsplash for your kitchen turn to peel-and-stick wall tiles. Not sure if you want to invest in a carpet? An area rug could cost less and accomplish the same thing.

First, create a budget and search around to get inspiration. To get ideas, attend open houses to see how other people are decorating their homes. You also can find how-to videos and decorating blogs on sites such as HSN, HomeGoods, Lowe’s and Home Depot. There are fewer home decor magazines than there used to be. But you can always flip through catalogs from stores such as Ballard Designs to get some tips. Also, experts encourage you to do broad searches on the Web. EBay just launched a new technology called Feed that allows you to personalize your searches based on your style, like mod 1960s. “It’s all about getting unexpected things,” said Chris Benz, an American fashion designer who is collaborating with eBay on various fashion collections. He said he has furnished his apartment and office with eclectic eBay finds like vintage Italian turquoise pottery pieces.



Study your space and figure out what pieces of furniture you’ll be using more. So if you spend a lot of time in your living room, you may want to spend more on a sofa and an entertainment center that would house your flat-screen TV and books. It’s like investing in good shoes or a handbag, said Pallavi Naidu, vice president of merchandising and product development at Atlanta-based Ballard Designs. Spending more on items that get lots of use means they will last longer and give you more satisfaction.

3 REPURPOSE PIECES Shop in flea markets and even your mother’s attic to find pieces that could be reinvented as useful home decor items. And think beyond the original purpose: WSL’s Corlett said that old sewing machines or leather-trimmed luggage can be used as tables.

6 WHEN IN DOUBT, PAINT Often, just a fresh coat of paint will make all the difference in a room. “Painting is one of the more affordable ways to change the decor,” Corlett said.

12 Newlyweds reflect on surviving the big day By ELLEN MCCARTHY The Washington Post It’s upon us, once again. You can hear it in the sound of the harp strings, the camera clicks, the echo of Corinthians – “Love is patient, love is kind.” You can hear it in the muffled screams of frenzied bridesmaids who are thisclose to giving their beloved “friend” a black eye for her big day. Wedding season. It rolls in each year like a taffeta-wrapped bouquet of stress, resentment and anxiety. And love, too. Let’s not forget the love. So, dearest brides and grooms, as the tuxes are donned and the glasses are raised, consider this your survival guide, meant to get you through the big day. We know you are frantically checking off your to-do lists, making sure no detail is overlooked. The linens must be perfect, and the flower girls’ hairstyles must match. And in the end, of course, none of that will matter. What will matter is whether you are happy. If you are, your joy will pervade every other aspect of the day. To get some perspective on the issue, we asked couples previously featured in The Post’s wedding stories what they would do differently if they had a do-over on their wedding day. Here’s what they said:

Worth a thousand words Looking back, Jennifer and John Meeks, who were married in December 2011, wish they had been more specific with their photographer. Jennifer said she would have given more detailed instructions on what shots

were important to capture – “e.g., traditional portrait sizes of me, bridal party, families, etc.” And while their wedding had to end at 11 p.m. because of noise restrictions, she wishes it could have gone on longer. “Try to add on an hour to your reception if you can,” she said. “You will be happy you did.”

Don’t forget to eat! When Monique and Chris Samuels tied the knot at the Ronald Reagan Building in March 2012, they left their reception hungry. “Everyone began coming up for pictures and to chat, so we never were able to finish our meal,” she said. After the wedding, they drove around at 4 a.m. looking for a bite to eat. Monique suggests having the caterer “make a doggie bag for the bride and groom so they can eat after the festivities.”

Take time to breathe Carmela Clendening, who married John Fernandez in May, suggests couples plan time between the ceremony and reception to just be together and enjoy the moment. “You are finally married, and the party is about to get started,” she said. “John and I worked hard to make our wedding vision become a reality – we didn’t want to miss any details – so we squeezed [in] 30 minutes for our own photographs to see how everything came together, and they turned out to be the photos that we loved the most.”

Carmela Clendening and John Fernandez recommend taking time to enjoy the moment. 2012. The couple wish they had asked guests to keep their cellphones tucked out of sight for the day. “We had two great photographers there, but many of our guests also were taking lots of pictures on their phones,” Deborah said. “One cousin was clearly texting through the toasts and was in our direct line of sight, and it was distracting.”

What did you say? Ralph Brabham and Drew Porterfield have few regrets about their October 2011 wedding at Long View Gallery in Washington. But they do wish they had gotten a microphone for the outdoor ceremony. “I think

some of the guests in the back had a tough time hearing us when we were giving our vows,” Ralph said.

Don’t forget the honeymoon! Nancy and Scott Knight were married in January 2012, and Nancy wishes they’d gone away right after the wedding. “Remember that work can wait,” she said. “I should have taken a honeymoon, but I convinced myself that it was a bad time and I needed to get back to work immediately. Trust me, no job is that important.” Besides, you’ve probably never needed a vacation more than after the stress of planning – and surviving – your wedding day.

I am not a huge fan of diamonds but I love colored gems. I have three rings that I wear every day. One is a ruby ring and the others are garnet and blue topaz. I’ve noticed that the stones are all scratched. Is there anything that can be done to make them look like new again? Yes, your rings can be easily restored to look brand new again. Depending on the severity of the scratches it may be easy enough to simply have the stones re-polished. The gemstone is removed from the setting and our stone cutter will go over each facet to remove the abrasions. Your gem will be restored to it’s brand new state. We can then reset the gem back into your setting and polish it as well to shine like the day you bought it. We will always get you an estimate first to establish whether the cost of re-polishing is a better investment verses just replacing the stone. The garnet and topaz gems are relatively inexpensive and it may cost less to just replace them. Gems like rubies, sapphires & emeralds are generally more valuable so re-cutting is usually the best option. Most people don’t realize that there are options available that can bring back the beauty of your favorite rings for a lot less than replacing the entire piece. Stop in for a free cleaning and estimate. Suzanne, Graduate Gemologist Email jewelry questions to: or visit us online at

Victim of bullying in school not ready to forgive Dear Abby: I was bullied from second grade all through school. In junior high, the abuse was both emotional and physical, and it happened on a daily basis. My parents’ response was that maybe I was the problem – and if I wasn’t, people would stop picking on me. (That’s a letter for another day.) What would have been my 10-year high school reunion was two weeks ago. Needless to say, I didn’t go. Since the reunion, however, I have received more than 30 messages via Facebook from former classmates. It seems I was the main topic of conversation at the reunion, mainly because everyone apparently wanted to apologize to me. Abby, I don’t know how to respond to these people. While I don’t doubt the sincerity of their apologies, I truly don’t want to have any contact with

them (even on Facebook). At the same time, I don’t want to be rude and just ignore them. So far, I haven’t replied to any of their messages. I want to know if I must, and if so, what I should say? To be honest, I’d like to tell them all to go to hell, but I’m trying to be nice. – Lost

For Words Dear Lost For Words: You do not have to say anything to any of these people, and you do not have to be “nice.” Silence sends a strong message, and it is the one I’m recommending. Understand that by apologizing, they are trying to make themselves feel better. It’s also possible maturity has caused them to realize what they did was wrong. However, you are not obligated to accept their apologies if doing so will make you feel worse. Dear Abby: I am a single mother

struggling with my 12-year-old daughter. For the past three months, she has been withdrawn, uncommunicative, rude, mean and treats me with contempt. We have been in counseling and are going back again, but I can’t ask people to stay with her while I go and recharge my spirit because she’s so rude to them as well. I need to know, Abby, what do other parents do to make it through this incredibly painful period in the lives of their teenager and themselves? –

Single Mom In Canada Dear Single Mom: Any abrupt change in behavior should be regarded as a red flag. Your daughter should be evaluated by her pediatrician to be sure there isn’t an underlying cause. Could she have been molested, be using drugs, pills, alcohol, etc.? Do her friends act this way? Does she HAVE

friends? Changes like this don’t usually happen overnight. Was this behavior tolerated when she was smaller? If a child of mine behaved that way, she would be grounded and her cellphone and Internet privileges canceled until she was 30. As to whom you can leave her with while you “recharge,” does this girl have a father, an aunt, a grandparent who can give you respite? That’s how some single parents get a break. But if those resources are not available, you will have to deal with this (with the help of a more effective therapist than the one you were using) until your “problem child” becomes an adult.

Addiction ballet keeps couple dancing in circles If it wasn’t the drinking, it was the pills. She denied it every step of the way. She made it so painful to bring it up that it wasn’t worth talking about almost no matter how ugly it got. Her days were spent taking care of ailments she might have some symptoms of, ailments she dreamed up to get the pills she needed and ailments that were caused by the drugs she was taking. Her personality had changed from a caring mom and wife to an angry, withdrawn, self-centered shell of who she used to be. Her husband was at his wits’ end. He was afraid to go to work many days because he didn’t trust that she’d get out of bed or off the couch to take

care of the kids. The house looked like a bad garage sale; the dishes stayed in the sink until he got home, and the shades were always down. His 6-year-old daughter had a terrible school attendance record largely because he had to leave before she was supposed to go to school and mommy would keep her home to watch her little sister so she could stay high. The relationship had deteriorated into a hopeless and hateful ballet in which she accused him of trying to control her, spy on her and of being uncaring about her health. The truth was he was trying to control her, didn’t trust her and was trying to manage everything. He had tried calling some

of her doctors to beg them to stop giving her drugs, searched the house for hiding places, begged friends to talk to her, made counseling appointments for her (some of which she kept to explain to them what a controlling jerk her husband was), lectured her, begged her to stop, had her arrested for domestic battery and threatened divorce. He was running out of energy and options. The one thing he hadn’t tried was getting help for himself. He had set up appointments for marriage counseling, but his secret agenda was to get her into the office so he could expose her exploits and get the satisfaction of the counselor’s agreement that she was a bad

mother and wife. To his great surprise, the last counselor they had been to suggested he needed some help, and that despite his wife’s condition, which he called a disease, he should go to an Al Anon group for family members of those with addiction problems. He was desperate enough to try anything, so he started attending, skeptically at first and mostly to help her. But he soon began to see his part in the addiction ballet. He began to stop trying so hard to manage, to stop snooping and

controlling. He realized that his need to control was about as strong as her need to take pills. She got a little worse before the prescription police caught up to her and she was levered into rehab. She has continued to have some problems despite a run at recovery, but her husband is doing well, the kids are safe and happy, and he’s a lot clearer about what he can control and what he can’t.

“Despicable Me 2” HHH STARRING: Voices of Steve Carell, Kristin Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Benjamin Bratt PLOT: A spy agency recruits retired supervillain Gru (Carell) to track down a criminal mastermind who has stolen a nasty virus. Gru’s three adopted daughters hope to set him up with his new spy partner (Wiig). RATING: PG for rude humor and mild action TIME: 1 hour, 38 minutes VERDICT: While not as fresh or surprising as the 2010 original, this sequel otherwise suffers little drop in quality. The same creative team brings another dose of snazzy visuals, pleasing sentimentality and raucous comedy, with the madcap Minions delivering a ton of slapstick. The filmmakers integrate the 3-D effects into the comedy, turning the computer-animated cartoon into a delightful carnival ride. – Jeffrey

Westhoff, Northwest Herald

“The Lone Ranger” H½ STARRING: Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, William Fichtner PLOT: Native American warrior Tonto recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid, a man of the law, into a legend of justice. RATING: PG-13 for sequences of intense action and violence, and some suggestive material TIME: 2 hours, 29 minutes VERDICT: But Verbinski’s film, stretching hard to both reinvent an out-of-date brand and breathe new life in the Western with a desperate onslaught of bloated set pieces, is a poor locomotive for Depp’s eccentric theatrics.

RATINGS HHHH - Excellent HHH - Recommended HH - Not recommended H - Awful For 2 ½ hours, the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced “Lone Ranger” inflates, subverts and distorts the conventions of the Western until, in an interminable climax, the big-budget spectacle finally, exhaustingly collapses in a scrap heap of train wreckage. “The Long Ranger” is, alas, a runaway train. A filmmaker of great excess, Verbinski’s ricocheting whimsy here runs off the rails. Flashbackheavy plot mechanics, occasionally grim violence (bullets land in bodies with the loudest of thwacks, a heart gets eaten) and surrealistic comedy add up to a confused tone that seems uncertain exactly how to position Depp’s Tonto in the movie, to say nothing of Armie Hammer’s wayward Lone Ranger. – Jeffrey

Passing down memories Baby boomers embrace tools to create visual family trees By MELISSA RAYWORTH The Associated Press


ebbie Corrigan will turn 55 this year. A baby boomer with children and grandchildren, she loves researching her family history. Last year, Corrigan, of Winchester, Va., wanted to create something permanent out of her research – a tangible representation of her family tree that could hang on a living room wall. But nothing she found was quite right. “When I did some searching on the Web to see what was being done for family trees, you’d see all these family trees that looked like real trees,” she says. “I wanted to make something people could give their kids that their kids would actually want to hang on a wall.” So Corrigan used her computer to design her own modern family tree. Relatives liked it so much they asked her to design ones for them, and soon she began offering her services on the craft website as a researcher and designer of graphic family trees. Many of her customers are fellow baby boomers seeking to illustrate their personal histories in creative ways. Some make printed books and wall art to celebrate their past. The website has become a popular destination for creating personal books that preserve thoughts and memories. “There’s something really powerful about the printed book” to baby boomers, in particular, says Brenna Lewis, head of marketing and products at Blurb. Young enough to use web-based tools enthusiastically, they’re also old enough to appreciate the value of a tangible, hard copy. Many boomers, Lewis says, are

Project No. 1: Photo book with captions

Go back as far as you can, adding brief details or photos of each ancestor. And pair the graphic family tree with a booklet of notations about things that were happening in local or world history at the time each person was born, and how these events might have affected their lives.

Many websites, including and, offer easy-to-use templates for creating photo books. Choose one that offers customizable pages with plenty of room for text. Choose a focus for the book, perhaps zeroing in on images from a particular period of your life or one specific place you lived. Then write long captions related to these photos, sharing personal observations and details with future generations.
