Gubernatorial candidates attend golf event By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com McHENRY – Three of the four men running for the GOP nomination for Illinois governor visited with local Republicans on Wednesday to briefly speak about their campaigns. McHenry County Republicans gathered for their annual golf outing, which organizers

expected to raise about $10,000. The event, at the McHenry Country Club, attracted three people running for the GOP nomination: state Sen. Bill Brady, who greeted golfers out on the course early in the day, state Treasurer Dan Rutherford and state Sen. Kirk Dillard, who spoke with attendees during the early evening. Bruce Rauner, a venture

capitalist who lives in Winnetka, did not attend, said Geri Davis, executive director of the McHenry County Republicans. Davis said the event was an opportunity for candidates to meet with fellow Republicans. “They’re working the room,” Davis said. “They know pretty much this is a friendly crowd.”

role in 2014 decision. PAGE A3

A Will County judge has ordered the Illinois Health and Facilities Review Board to explain why it reversed course and approved a permit for Centegra’s $233 million Huntley hospital. The ruling comes almost a year after the state review board voted, 6-3, to approve Centegra’s plan to build a 128-bed hospital in Huntley. The decision came after the board twice rejected Centegra’s plans on the heels of staff recommendations that the plan failed to meet all of the state requirements. Judge Bobbi Petrungaro on Monday ordered the board to provide additional explanation for the decision. Petrungaro noted the administrative record on the plan has more than 9,000 pages of material and that the board’s decision permitting the Huntley project had the same one-paragraph explanation for approving Centegra’s initial application to the board. “However, the decision contains no findings of fact, no adoption of the [state agency report], no indication as to which criteria and standards were met or were not met, no indication as to why the board must have disagreed with the [state agency report] and no conclusions by the

Ex-CEO describes rough state politics He says he was kicked out at Metra for resisting corruption By JASON KEYSER The Associated Press CHICAGO – A former California transit executive tapped to clean up the scandal-tarnished Metra commuter rail agency said Wednesday he was pushed out barely two years into the job for doing exactly that and resisting pressure from some of Illi-

nois’ most powerful politicians. Alex Clifford was allowed to speak publicly for the first time Wednesday about his lucrative buyout, which critics have called hush money and a waste of taxpayer funds. Clifford alleged that House Speaker Michael Madigan pushed Metra staff for a pay raise for a political pal and that Madigan and another politician

also sought patronage hires. Clifford also described an episode in which he was asked to simply write a $50,000 check to an organization of U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush’s choosing. When he refused, Clifford said he got a taste of Illinois politics at its worst. In hiring a new director, Metra’s board had searched

for “somebody who would be squeaky clean and not tainted by, if you will, Illinois politics,” Clifford said. He was just a year into the job when Madigan pushed for a campaign contributor to get a pay raise at his Metra job. “This is my first ... experience with things that I’ve heard about Illinois politics but not yet experienced,” Clifford said of that incident.

GENERAL INFORMATION: 815-459-4040

Gun irrationality often clouds judgment When you run an image of a series of handguns on Page 1, there’s a tinge of concern about a backlash from some readers. That’s because Americans are somewhat irrational about guns. Like abortion, guns are one of the most polarizing issues we have. The extremes are drastic, and people at your own backyard barbecue could have an otherwise lovely evening together while holding vastly differing opinions on the subject of gun control. There are plenty of high-profile media cases to fan the flames on all sides. Contrary to what many believe, they aren’t cases invented by the media. They rise to national news coverage because some news consumers are consumed by the story. Until the George Zimmerman verdict was reached, I don’t believe we ever played the story on Page 1. But people like Nancy Grace shrieked over the Zimmerman trial for one reason: ratings. You can get mad at the evil media all you like, but the evil media, and I use the term loosely

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Kevin Lyons with regard to Grace, are responding to their viewership demands. Those who rant and rave the most ferociously about the evil media’s coverage of (insert shooting story here) are the biggest consumers of the story. It’s like lions complaining about feeding time at the zoo. Sandy Hook. Aurora, Colo. Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Not all major human vs. human tragedies involve firearms, but enough do that the big ones get our attention. Without getting into the perceived racial components of the Zimmerman trial, there was plenty of meat for those who believe handguns should be illegal – and certainly not allowed to be carried by citizens – and plenty for those who believe Zimmerman represented exactly the reason why citizens should have the right to protect them-

selves in public with a handgun. The verdict reaction was to be expected. Having covered self-defense murder cases, I can tell you they can be tough to disprove. Violence begets violence, and what happens in between is often hard to navigate. In the frenzy to their respective corners to proselytize about gun control or the right to bear arms, people often didn’t sound terribly intelligent in the wake of the verdict. According to common sense, the key facts are that Trayvon Martin did not deserve to die and that George Zimmerman had a right to defend himself when eventually attacked. There are many other choices that Martin and Zimmerman could have made that would have resulted in just another night in Sanford, Fla. Soon we’ll have concealed-carry permits in Illinois. For those concerned about a rash of vigilante justice, you shouldn’t be. People committing acts of handgun violence are by and large those who carry handguns without regard for the laws in place.

While I’ve fired guns recreationally, I don’t consider myself a gun person. Like most people, a concealed-carry permit won’t sweeten the deal. I’m fortunate to live in a nice neighborhood where someone is far more likely to shove a cold beer in my face than the cold barrel of a Sig Sauer. In another place, circumstances might be different. As long as we have guns in this country, which I suspect will be at least as long as my lifetime and likely my children’s lifetimes, many Americans will remain irrational about guns. What’s frustrating about news events such as the Zimmerman verdict is that such irrationality clouds the judgment of so many people that this was both a reasonable and unlikeable result of a very tragic incident.

WASHINGTON – A rapidly growing network of police cameras is capturing, storing and sharing data on license plates, making it possible to stitch together people’s movements whether they are stuck in a commute, making tracks to the beach or up to no good. The number of license tag captures has reached the millions, according to a study published Wednesday by the American Civil Liberties Union based on information

from hundreds of law enforcement agencies. Departments keep the records for weeks, years or sometimes indefinitely, saying they can be crucial in tracking suspicious cars, aiding drug busts, finding abducted children and more. Attached to police cars, bridges or buildings – and sometimes merely as an app on a police officer’s smartphone – scanners capture images of passing or parked vehicles and pinpoint their locations, uploading that information into police databases.

Have you ever fired a gun?

Over time, it’s unlikely many vehicles in a covered area escape notice. And with some of the information going into regional databases encompassing multiple jurisdictions, it’s becoming easier to build a record of where someone has been and when, over a large area. While the Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that a judge’s approval is needed to use GPS to track a car, networks of plate scanners allow police effectively to track a driver’s location, sometimes several times

Heat blankets much of U.S. as summer sizzles The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – From Minnesota to Massachusetts temperatures surged to potentially dangerous levels Wednesday as the largest heat wave of the summer stretched out and stagnated, with relief in many parts of the country still days away. Most states in the U.S. were expected to have some areas where the temperature would hit 90 degrees or more, according to the National Weather Service. Humid air just made it all feel worse, with heat indexes in some places over 100. Parts of 19 states were under weather advisories. In New York City, where it

Temperatures could go as high as 105 and humidity could go as low as 1 percent by the afternoon, said Tina Rose, a spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. The fire already consumed seven homes. At the World Trade Center reconstruction site in New York City, workers building a rail hub dripped under their AP photo hard hats, thick gloves and heavy-duty boots.

I couldn’t breathe,” he said, turning away a customer who asked for a hamburger. “Just cold drinks,” he said. Amid the heat, officials in Washington, D.C.’s Maryland suburbs worked to keep a failing water main from cutting off hundreds of thousands of people, just when they needed it most. People in Prince George’s County were asked not to run their faucets, water their lawns or flush toilets to keep the water system from

Madigan won’t discuss dad’s role By SARA BURNETT The Associated Press CHICAGO – Speaking publicly for the first time since announcing she wouldn’t run for Illinois governor, Attorney General Lisa Madigan was tight-lipped Wednesday about what conversations – if any – she had with her politically powerful father before she made her decision. Madigan ended months of speculation Monday when she said she wouldn’t challenge Gov. Pat Quinn, a fellow Democrat, in 2014. In an emailed statement, she said she never planned to run if her father, longtime House Speaker Michael Madigan, remained in his job. The comment raised questions about whether the speaker – who has held his position for 28 of his 42 years in the Illinois House – had contemplated stepping down so his daughter could run. Asked Wednesday whether they had discussed that possibility, Lisa Madigan wouldn’t say.

cal campaigns benefiting the speaker. Clifford said the request — revealed late last week during an inquiry into Clifford’s $718,000 severance — betrayed a “moral and ethical flaw,” but Brown said Madigan did nothing improper. Asked if her father had ever asked her to hire someone or give someone a raise, Lisa Madigan repeatedly said she doesn’t deal with hiring. She also said she didn’t see a problem with the state having an attorney general and House speaker from the same family, even though she said Monday that “the state would not be well served” by such an arrangement if it involved a governor and the speaker. “I don’t think there’s any question about the record that I’ve had serving as attorney general,” Madigan said, noting she has collected billions of dollars for the state through legal actions, such as a national settlement with the country’s five largest bank mortgage servicers accused of fraudulent foreclosure.

“As you can imagine there’s a process I went through in terms of evaluating how I could best continue to serve the people of the state of Illinois,” she said during an unrelated event in Chicago. “Obviously that involved private conversations that I will not be going through with you publicly.” Steve Brown, spokesman for Michael Madigan, declined to comment when asked the same question. Attorney Lisa MadiGeneral Lisa gan’s comments came on the Madigan same day the Regional Transportation Authority heard testimony from the former CEO of the Metra commuter rail service about his dealings with Illinois politicians, including Michael Madigan. Alex Clifford has said Michael Madigan asked Clifford’s staffers to give a pay raise to a Metra employee who was a contributor to politi-

Doctor suspected in Omaha killings waives extradition By JIM SUHR The Associated Press JONESBORO – A physician suspected in four slayings in Nebraska and arrested in Illinois is waiving extradition and will return to Omaha to face murder charges. Unshaven and wearing grey striped scrubs and orange slippers, Anthony Garcia offered only short responses during Wednesday’s brief court appearance in southern Illinois’ Union County. “Absolutely, yes,” he said when asked by Circuit Judge Mark Boie if he was returning to Nebraska voluntarily and understood a one-page extradition waiver. A lawyer for the 40-yearold Garcia, who lives in Terre Haute, Ind., denied the allegations. “My client steadfastly

professes his innocence,” said Bob Motta, who along with his wife, Alison, is representing Garcia in the extradition case and his prosecution in Nebraska. “The game is afoot. The state (Nebraska) has a heavy burden and we’re going to put it to the test.” Motta declined to go into details of the Nebraska case following Wednesday’s 15-minute hearing. But he bristled at suggestions by Nebraska authorities that Garcia showed traits of a serial killer, calling that “patently absurd.” Garcia was arrested in Illinois on Monday after a traffic stop on Interstate 57 and was being held without bond. It was unclear when Garcia will return to Omaha; Nebraska officials will have to travel to Illinois to accompany him back.

8BRIEFS Congress threatens to curtail NSA spying WASHINGTON – In a heated confrontation over domestic spying, members of Congress said Wednesday they never intended to allow the National Security Agency to build a database of every phone call in America. They threatened to curtail the government’s surveillance authority. Top Obama administration officials countered that the program was legal and necessary to keep America safe.

Teen accused in child’s death hospitalized WAUKEGAN – A suburban Chicago teen who’s accused of driving onto a sidewalk and killing a 5-year-old girl after inhaling computer dust cleaner has checked into a hospital for treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder. Defense attorney Douglas Zeit told Lake County Circuit Judge James Booras that 19-year-old Carly Rousso was unable to attend a mandatory hearing Tuesday because of her hospitalization.

Chicago beefs up assault weapons ban CHICAGO – Chicago’s City Council unanimously voted Wednesday to beef up its assault weapons ban with new measures that define “student safety zones,” changes that come in the wake of Illinois’ new concealed carry law. Illinois lawmakers approved a state law last week outlining who can carry concealed weapons in public. Local entities have 10 days to come up with new or updated gun laws.

8NATION BRIEF

Arms seizure could hurt U.S.-Cuba ties The ASSOCIATED PRESS HAVANA – Cuba’s admission that it was secretly sending aging weapons systems to North Korea has turned the global spotlight on a little-known link in a secretive network of rusting freighters and charter jets that moves weapons to and from North Korea despite U.N. sanctions. The revelation that Cuba was shipping the arms, purportedly to be repaired and returned, is certain to jeopardize slowly warming ties between the U.S. and Havana, although the extent of the damage remains uncertain. Experts said Cuba’s participation in the clandestine arms network was a puzzling move that promised little military payoff for the risk of incurring U.N. penalties and imperiling detente with Washington. The aging armaments, in-

cluding radar system parts, missiles, and even two jet fighters, were discovered Monday buried beneath thousands of tons of raw Cuban brown sugar piled onto a North Korean freighter that was seized by Panama as it headed for home through the Panama Canal. North Korea is barred by the U.N. from buying or selling arms, missiles or components, but for years U.N. and independent arms monitors have discovered North Korean weaponry headed to Iran, Syria and a host of nations in Africa and Asia. The U.N. says North Korea also has repeatedly tried to import banned arms. What’s more, analysts say, it maintains a thriving sideline in repairing aging Warsaw Pact gear, often in exchange for badly needed commodities, such as Burmese rice. “They don’t know how to

taking desperate measures to pursue that work. Despite the best efforts of the international community to cut off arms transfers to and from North Korea, it will continue in some form.”

Senators reach deal on student loan rates WASHINGTON – Heading off a costly increase for returning college students, a bipartisan group of senators reached a deal Wednesday that would offer students better rates on their loans this fall but perhaps assign higher rates in coming years. The deal would offer students lower interest rates through the 2015 academic year, but then rates were expected to climb above where they were when students left campus this spring. The interest rates would be linked to the financial markets, but rates would never climb higher than 8.25 percent for undergraduate students. Grad students would not pay rates higher than 9.5 percent and parents’ rates would top out at 10.5 percent.

The surprise for many observers was that the latest shipment of arms headed to North Korea comes from Cuba, which acknowledged late Tuesday that it was shipping two anti-aircraft missile systems, nine missiles, two Mig-21 fighter jets and 15 jet engines, saying they were headed to North Korea to be repaired there. The discovery aboard the freighter Chong Chon Gang was expected to trigger an investigation by the U.N. Security Council committee that monitors the sanctions against North Korea, and Panamanian officials said U.N. investigators were expected in Panama on Thursday. Britain’s U.N. Ambassador, Mark Lyall Grant, said that “any weapons transfers, for whatever reason, to North Korea would be a violation of the sanctions regime.”

Pecatonica case cited in ruling • HOSPITAL Continued from page A1

Sarah Nader – snader@shawmedia.com

Republican gubernatorial candidate Kirk Dillard mingles with the crowd during Wednesday’s McHenry County Republican Party golf outing at the McHenry County Club.

State comptroller also attends • GOP Continued from page A1 Also in attendance was state Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka, who won the GOP gubernatorial primary in 2006, but then lost the general election to Rod Blagojevich. Topinka has not endorsed a candidate for governor. “I know all four of them, and they’re all fine folks,” Topinka said. “I think any one of them could make a good governor.” Topinka said whoever is the Republican nominee will need to talk about cleaning up government on the campaign trail, along with working to fix the state’s pension crisis. “They are going to also have to show you can have good government,” Topinka said. “You can’t have all these scandals one after another after another. You’re going to have to show people who is honest and ethical, who can get the job done, and [they] have to show they have man-

agement skills to make the state work and go forward and be able to get along with all parties.” Dillard, who was chief of staff for former Gov. Jim Edgar, spoke while attendees ate dinner. He officially announced Monday that he would run for governor. The Hinsdale resident said he believes the state needs a governor from the suburbs who is familiar with the issues of growth, infrastructure needs, train lines and school aid. “This is a great state, folks. We are the capital of the Midwest,” Dillard said. “We must return pride to the prairie. We should not be at an unemployment rate twice or two and a half times Iowa’s.” He said he has an ability to work with a Democratic legislature. “I know how to get government and a legislature to live within its means, and I’ve proven that before,” Dillard said. Rutherford, whose day in-

cluded events in Kane County and Bloomingdale, among others, said his campaign is going well. He said his campaign has more than $1 million in cash on hand and no debt. Rutherford said he is confident as early polls have him leading the Republican primary race. He said he does not want the temporary income tax hike to continue and added the tax increase did not solve the rest of the state’s financial problems, including pensions. “The way I think it should ... be done, is Speaker [Michael] Madigan, [Senate President] John Cullerton, [House Republican Leader] Tom Cross, [Senate Republican Leader] Christine Radogno and the governor ... go in the room, close the door, put everything on the table and say, ‘I understand we’re not going to agree to everything, some people will be angry, ... but we’re not going to walk out of here until we know the whole package is ready to go,’ ” Rutherford said.

Testimony part of severance audit • METRA Continued from page A1 Clifford was speaking to the Regional Transportation Authority board, which is auditing the severance deal, under which he could get up to $718,000. His appearance came after Metra was pressured to partially release him from a confidentiality agreement. Clifford was hired in February 2011, after Metra’s former executive director was accused of defrauding the agency out of about $475,000. The scandal prompted the federal government to restrict the rail agency’s access to federal funds, a blow to one of the nation’s largest commuter rail networks as it was struggling to make improvements. Hiring Clifford was a central plank of the reform program Metra presented to the Federal Transit Administration to get those funding restrictions lifted.

Clifford, a former Marine who rose through the ranks at the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, said he took that reform mandate seriously but was ultimately pushed out by several Metra board members who he says were angered by the course he was taking. “This whole thing is a classic Chicago tragedy,” said transportation researcher Joseph Schwieterman of DePaul University. “We’ve pushed for reform and now we’ve proved that we’re not ready for it.” “I think Clifford refused to be a wheeler and dealer, and it’s hard to survive in this town without trading favors with political powerbrokers,” Schwieterman said. In 3½ hours of questioning Wednesday, Clifford detailed allegations from a confidential April 3 memo he wrote to Metra’s board when, he says, it became apparent his contract might not be renewed in retaliation for his stance.

Much of the attention was focused on Madigan’s support for an employee pay raise. “Not that it would have made a difference, but keep in mind he didn’t even submit any information along with that to say why this person deserved a raise,” Clifford said of Madigan with a laugh. Clifford said in the memo that when he rejected the raise, Metra board Chairman Brad O’Halloran indicated it would be taken into account during deliberations over whether to renew Clifford’s employment contract. “He told me that he needed to arrange a meeting with Speaker Madigan to assess ‘what damage I have done’ to Metra and its future funding by my refusal to accede to Speaker Madigan’s requests,” Clifford wrote in the memo. Clifford said Wednesday that he believed Madigan’s actions, while perhaps not illegal, betrayed “a moral and ethical flaw.”

board,” Petrungaro wrote. In her ruling, the judge also cited a similar decision from an Illinois Appellate Court made July 12 concerning a $16.3 million nursing home project in Pecatonica, located west of Rockford. The appellate court ruled that “judicial review is impossible without a reasoned explanation by the board.” In the Pecatonica case, the state review board approved the project despite contrary recommendations from the board’s staff. The rulings have left the state review board scrambling to make sense of the situation. Frank Urso, the attorney for the review board, said the board wasn’t yet clear whether the appel-

late court ruling, which establishes a legal precedent, would affect how the review board operates in the future. “We’re still analyzing the decisions and looking at the best course of action,” Urso said. “We’re taking seriously what they are saying, and we’re going to answer their questions.” Centegra officials are proceeding with the designing of the proposed Huntley hospital, as they prepare to unveil formal designs to the Huntley Plan Commission on Monday. Susan Milford, Centegra’s senior vice president of strategy and development, said Centegra is “very confident” the review board’s decision will stand, arguing that the majority of projects that come in front of the board often don’t meet all of the state’s permit requirements.

“We are confident that the judge is trying to do the right thing by asking for more information on the board’s decision. ... It’s a matter of the judge trying to get more clarity,” Milford said. The board’s reversal last year on the project riled Centegra’s regional competitors. Sherman Health, Advocate Health System and Mercy Health System all filed suit after the board’s approval. Mercy Vice President Richard Gruber welcomed the judge’s ruling Wednesday. Mercy officials plan to keep a watchful eye on how the state review board complies with the order. “I believe that transparency is something that is very, very important in the public review process, and I think that it’s important that it gets enforced once in a while,” Gruber said.

Close OMA loophole A loophole in Illinois’ Open Meetings Act allows governing bodies to break the law with no consequence. That must change. The Northwest Herald was made aware of the loophole last week when the Illinois Attorney General’s Office said it did not have the authority to review Prairie Grove School District 46’s closed-session minutes because For the record there is a 60-day window from Because of the Open Meetwhen a possible ings Act loophole, we’ll never Open Meetings know whether District 46’s Act violation occlosed sessions were lawful. curred to when a request for review can be made. Because government units have to review and release closed-session minutes only twice a year, those release dates mean minutes aren’t always released within that 60-day time period, essentially allowing government to break the law – knowingly or unknowingly. “Unless you have someone on the inside who blows the whistle, it’s not very helpful,” said Maryam Judar, the executive director of the Citizen Advocacy Center. In District 46’s case, it met behind closed doors nine times from Nov. 13 to April 23, and the minutes for six of those closed sessions were released at a board meeting in June. Based on the minutes, it appears that the school board violated the Open Meetings Act by discussing in closed session what should have been public policy decisions. Topics discussed included the reorganization of district positions and changes in the junior high’s master schedule in light of declining enrollment and teacher retirements. Public bodies can go behind closed doors to discuss appointments, employment, compensation, discipline, performance or dismissal of specific employees under the state’s Open Meetings Act. Reorganizing a position or deciding whether to fill a vacancy do not fall into those categories, Illinois Press Association Attorney Don Craven said. Because of the Open Meetings Act loophole, we’ll never know whether District 46’s closed sessions were lawful. The Open Meetings Act must be corrected to fix this. The law must be changed to either remove the 60-day cap or to start the 60-day clock after the governing body releases the closedsession minutes. To keep this loophole open and allow governments to break the law behind closed doors without consequence is unacceptable.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE No Lawn Chair Dads? To the Editor: No Crystal Lake Fourth of July parade is complete without the local Lawn Chair Dads. Boxed out because they hold up the parade to perform? Really? Isn’t that what the parade is to do – entertain and create an experience? Where’s the decorative floats, the marching bands, and the fun entertainment we used to have? Over the past three years the parade has become a large commercial campaign for special interest groups. We should reduce the number of these entrants and go back to what the parade should be about – fun and entertainment. By the way, the Jesse White Tumblers stop the parade to perform. Aren’t they one of the biggest hits of the parade? Karen Funk

Pursuit of MIAs lacking Beside and just below the American flag at many places where it’s displayed can be seen the black and white POW/MIA banner. It is a sign that many view it as a duty to find out what happened to the thousands of Americans still listed as missing in action or as prisoners of war from our nation’s conflicts. They deserve our best efforts as a nation. They certainly deserve more than a Pentagon MIA program described by the military itself as so dysfunctional – and perhaps corrupt – that it is close to “total failure.” The Associated Press recently investigated the military’s Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command and found it to be “woefully inept and even corrupt.” Altoona (Pa.)

Lakeside Fest thankful To the Editor: Every year, people from all over gather at the Lakeside Legacy Arts Park and historic Dole Mansion to participate in what has become a true community tradition at the Lakeside Festival. There are rides, games, music and fun for all ages. The Lakeside Festival has been voted Best Festival by Northwest Herald readers for three years running. I am honored to serve as the chairman

of this festival, and an event like this cannot succeed without the support of many. Lakeside Legacy Foundation is a nonprofit, that, for 11 years, has aimed to preserve our community history while providing a home for our community’s arts and music. The proceeds of Lakeside Festival provides vital funding to support these diverse programs and events. We at Lakeside express our gratitude for all of the support we received from our sponsors, volunteers, neighbors, community partners and fest attendees. A special thanks goes to our new partnership with the Crystal Lake Young Professionals for its service in the beverage tent. From the beginning, the Crystal Lake City Council and mayor support our festival as an important part of our community heritage. Additionally, the city’s police, firefighters, public works department, the Crystal Lake Park District and the village of Lakewood keep the festival safe and fun. Finally, a special thanks goes to the city of Crystal Lake for the spectacular fireworks, and to the Chamber of Commerce and the Lions Club for a fabulous parade. We are truly thankful to everyone who made this year’s Lakeside Festival a success. Ron Russell Lakeside Fest chairman

Spiritual loss To the Editor: Luke: we must take up our cross, difficulties, and challenges, lose our egocentric-self daily, not run, hide, or cast them aside; thus lacking true Christian conviction. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton raised a provocative question. If a gay Scout is in a tent with a straight Scout, isn’t that going to be uncomfortable? What about a closeted 18-year-old in a tent with a straight 18-year-old? Institutional religion often runs away from truth and also denies the heart of authority, the people.

This is such a case. This individual decision is not in keeping with the pastoral teachings of Vatican II. Nor is it in agreement with John Paul II on the Family, 1981: “An Even more generous, intelligent and prudent pastoral commitment ... faced by situations which are objectively difficult.” Further, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in Always our Children states gays are so because of an “innate instinct.” How can one person deny another’s instinct and treat them like lepers? I find St. Elizabeth Ann Seton’s decision anything but Always our Children. I find it cowardly and heretical to Christian core values of faith, hope and love. Where is your outrage, demanding human decency and above all the Christian core of compassion and love taught by Jesus? Let’s just be at Mass and forget our cross but in submissive silence wear our head vials. Richard Rill Crystal Lake

Lisa Madigan’s coffee-mug crackdown leaves bitter taste SPRINGFIELD – Lisa Madigan is at it again. She is trying to keep the world safe from coffee mugs, and, apparently, from goofy parodies. It seems she doesn’t like a coffee cup marketed by Urban Outfitters that looks sort of like a prescription drug bottle. The mug is bright orange like a medicine bottle and has an Rx-type label on it. The prescribing physician is “Dr. Harold Feelgood.” The dosage instructions are: “Drink one mug by mouth, repeat until awake and alert.” And the quantity is “12 ounces of black gold.” I first saw one of these mugs in the hands of a co-worker and found it mildly amusing. She enjoys her coffee. I miss my caffeine. I gave it up seven months ago for health reasons and find myself longing for it every morning. A good jolt of caffeine can really get you going. And that’s the humor behind the mug. Most caffeine users enjoy its

mild stimulation properties. Those of us who have quit find ourselves jonesing for another fix. So imagine my surprise when I learned that Madigan recently signed a letter along with 21 other attorneys general calling for Urban Outfitters to quit marketing the mug. Here is an excerpt from the letter: “As you may be aware, there is a national health crisis related to the abuse and diversion of prescription drugs. As Attorneys General, we have prosecuted and engaged in outreach to stop this epidemic. We are actively engaged in a campaign of environmental change to educate the public that abuse of prescription drugs is not safe simply because the medication originated from a doctor. By putting these highly recognizable labels on your products you are undermining our efforts. These products demean the thousands of deaths that occur each month in the United States from accidental overdoses.” Looks like Madigan and her at-

VIEWS Scott Reeder torney general cohorts are calling out the parody police. She doesn’t think this satirical novelty is particularly funny, so she is using the full weight of her office to stifle the errant humor. Don’t get me wrong, drug abuse is a pernicious problem in our society. I’ve had too many friends ravaged by this affliction. But I fail to see how goofy coffee mugs contribute to the problem. And in a free society, should government really be weighing in on what jokes are funny and which ones aren’t? That smacks of totalitarianism. After all, we are a free people. We ought to be able to laugh at what we think is amusing and spend our money in the manner we see fit without any interference from

government. Humor lies in the eye of the beholder. I couldn’t help but wonder what would constitute approved humor in the world Madigan would have us live in. Then I remembered a New Yorker cartoon. The cartoonist Pat Byrnes drew an office worker with a meth lab set up on his desk telling a co-worker with a cup of java, “Meth doesn’t upset my stomach the way coffee does.” If in the politically correct world the attorney general inhabits, equating coffee consumption to prescription drug abuse is bad, then a parody linking it to methamphetamine addiction must be horrible. I asked the attorney general whether she saw a distinction between the parody she condemned Urban Outfitters for and the one Pat Byrnes produced. Here is a portion of her office’s response: “(W)e’ve taken action to stop efforts to normalize the use of

dangerous drugs that are addictive and cause the deaths of far too many children and adults every year. “As a result, we have challenged the promotion and sale of products such as Kool Mix cigarettes, Pot Suckers, Cocaine energy drink and Meth Coffee. Today, prescription drug abuse is one of the leading causes of addiction and death among young people. That’s why we have joined with other concerned attorneys general to question the marketing of products that make light of prescription drug abuse.” Fair enough. It would appear that Madigan doesn’t like these kinds of parodies, which she believes trivialize substance abuse. So will Madigan be sending cartoonist Byrnes a cease-and-desist letter anytime soon? Probably not – he’s her husband. • Scott Reeder is a veteran statehouse reporter and the journalist in residence at the Illinois Policy Institute. He can be reached at sreeder@ illinoispolicy.org.

HEAT ADVISORY FOR THURSDAY, FRIDAY The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory that will be in effect from 11 a.m. Thursday through 7 p.m. Friday. High temperatures are expected to reach the low to mid-90s on Thursday and upper 90s Friday. The heat index is expected to be at least 100 for Thursday and Friday. Low temperatures will reach the mid-70s Thursday night, the weather service said. There could be an increase in heat-related illnesses, and the heat can be most stressful on small children, seniors or those with medical conditions, the weather service said. “Leaving a child or a pet in an enclosed vehicle, even for a short time, can be deadly,” the weather service said in its advisory. There also could be rolling power outages and buckling pavement, according to the National Weather Service.

MCC board ponders budget Trustees consider holding taxes, limiting pay raises for administrators By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – The McHenry County College Board could keep more money in taxpayers’ pockets and put less in administrators’ under a pair of new proposals. After the board failed to

reach an agreement on administrative raises at the last meeting, Chairman Ron Parrish has proposed a 1.7 percent cost-of-living increase for administrators, with any additional compensation to be considered on a merit system. That proposal comes with

some trustees’ requests to see two budgets – one showing the revenue generated by a 4.9 percent increase to the tax levy and another showing revenue with no increase. Parrish said both suggestions show the board is serious about controlling costs, especially with levy requests

that generally are much higher than what the college receives. “We never get what we levy for, but the fact is perception is reality, so when people see a 9 percent increase in the levy, they’re not happy,”

TOP 10 FUGITIVE ARRESTED IN FLA. WOODSTOCK – A man listed among the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office top 10 fugitives who was wanted in McHenry and Kane counties on drug charges has been apprehended in Florida. Cecil T. Barnes, 31, was wanted in McHenry County for unlawful possession and delivery of a controlled substance and a failure to appear in court on traffic violations. He was wanted on a Carpentersville Police Department-issued warrant for manufacturing or delivering cocaine within a close proximity to a school. The McHenry County warrant was issued in February 2012, when authorities learned Barnes had fled and investigators were unable to locate him. Barnes was tracked to his Destin, Fla., apartment, where Florida authorities arrested him Monday without incident and booked him in the Okaloosa County Jail. His McHenry County bond has been set at $75,000 and at $300,000 on the Kane County charges.

eterans (from left) Andy Diedrich, Steve Zumbek and Tony Handzet, all of McHenry, and Ben Keefe of Round Lake Beach work together Wednesday to assemble the traveling Vietnam Memorial in the baseball field near the Veterans of Foreign Wars Fox River Post 4600 in McHenry. The traveling Vietnam Memorial wall is three-fifths the size of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C., and travels around the U.S. for various events throughout the year. It stands six feet tall at the center and stretches almost 300 feet from end to end. The wall was paid for by donations from local businesses and individuals, as well as fundraising done through the VFW.

Library focuses on digital books Dredging McHenry facility looking to add more seating and leisure space By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com McHENRY – The McHenry Public Library is looking to downsize its book collection, its executive director said. The budget, which the board approved at a meeting this week, shifts some dollars away from hard copies of books to digital editions, Executive Director Jim Scholtz said. The goal is to bring the library’s collection to 145,000

167,000 number of hard copy books in McHenry Public Library

145,000 target number of hard copy books to add more library space items from 167,000, so the library can add more seating and leisure space, he said. It is about halfway there. Digital books don’t take

up physical space in the library, and patrons who don’t have an eReader of their own still can take advantage of the selection by checking out the library’s Nook or Nook HDs. Each tablet is stocked with 500 books. Because the library is buying fewer books, it is focusing on popular titles, Scholtz said. The rule of thumb for an average library is that 80 percent of the circulation comes from 20 percent of the collection.

People looking for more obscure titles are not at a loss, though, because the library belongs to a consortium, which opens up those collections to McHenry patrons. While the budget keeps most things the same – the board had voted previously to keep the property-tax levy flat instead of raising it the amount it’s allowed under the tax cap – a few projects are on the horizon.

Bond reduction denied for Woodstock man CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com

WOODSTOCK – A McHenry County judge denied a bond reduction for a man accused of having sex with an underage girl and storing used condoms from what prosecutors called “other conquests.” Bond for Juan D. Lebron, 28, of 2420 Bridgewater Drive in Woodstock, will remain

at $75,000, Judge Sharon Prather ruled Wednesday. Prather said Lebron’s previous crimJuan D. inal history Lebron and failure to appear in court in the past were reasons for keeping his bond at the higher amount. He was charged July 13 with aggravated criminal

sexual abuse, a Class 2 felony. Lebron’s defense attorney, Public Defender Angelo Mourelatos, asked the judge to reduce his bond to $30,000. Assistant State’s Attorney Robert Zalud said the alleged victim is a 13- or 14-year-old girl who is not believed to be related to the defendant. The girl told police she was naked on Lebron’s bed, and the two had sex.

project waits on permit

Wonder Lake group hopes for fall start By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com WONDER LAKE – After years of delays and hearings, the dredging project at Wonder Lake may move forward as early as this fall. The Wonder Lake Master Property Owners Association is waiting on one more permit from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. With permits from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources already in hand, the association decided to start the bidding process for a sediment drying facility, which would need to be built before any dredging can happen.

ST. CHARLES: CRIME

Man charged with sexually assaulting St. Charles teen By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – A 22-yearold Hampshire man faces nine felony charges following a five-month investigation that began when a St. Charles teen reported he sexually assaulted her, according to the St. Charles Police Department. A mutual acquaintance Nathan Lake introduced Nathan Lake and the 16-year-old girl on Jan. 27, police spokesman Paul McCurtain said, noting their first contact was through texting. Lake made arrangements with the teen for her to leave her house without her parents’ knowledge or consent, McCurtain said. He said Lake picked her up in St. Charles and drove to rural Hampshire, where he sexually assaulted her. The girl reported the incident Jan. 28 to St. Charles police, launching an investigation that included numerous interviews, involvement by the Kane County Child Advocacy Center and a forensic analysis of the teen’s cellphone, McCurtain said. A Kane County grand jury

Tuesday indicted Lake, of the 44W000 block of Plank Road, on the following charges: four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, a Class 2 felony; two counts of indecent solicitation of a child, a Class 3 felony; and one count each of solicitation to meet a child, a Class 4 felony; traveling to meet a child for unlawful purposes, a Class 3 felony; and child abduction, a Class 4 felony, police said. The indictments stated Lake “intentionally lured” the teen into a motor vehicle or building without expressed consent of her parents for something other than a lawful purpose, and he traveled by car to meet her to engage in an unlawful sex offense after using a cellphone “to seduce, solicit, lure or entice” her for such purpose, McCurtain said. St. Charles police arrested Lake without incident Tuesday, McCurtain said. Lake was being held in the Kane County Correctional Facility on $100,000 bail. He must post $10,000 bond to be released, McCurtain said. Police are asking anyone with information about other potential victims to call Detective Chuck Pierce at 630-4433827. McCurtain said police “just want to make sure there aren’t any others.”

Parrish voted against levy increase last year ‘Summer boot camp’ • MCC CRYSTAL LAKE: LEADERSHIP TRAINING

Continued from page B1 Parrish said. “Whether it turns out to be 2 percent or something else is not the point. We have not been as sensitive to that as we need to be.” Parrish voted against a 9.9 percent increase in the levy last year. The college collected only about 3 percent more in tax revenue but asked for more to assure it benefited from new construction.

The board also could break through a stalemate over administrative raises after agreeing on a process to approve a 1.7 percent cost-of-living adjustment with any other increase based on merit. Trustees could not come to an agreement on across-theboard raises at their last board meeting, as suggestions ranged between 2 percent and 3.7 percent. College President Vicky Smith, who is not included in the group of administrators to receive annual raises, has

pushed for higher compensation, as administrators make an average of $19,000 less than their counterparts at other area community colleges. Trustee Molly Walsh said details still need to be worked out for a merit-based system. She said trustees must decide whether merit-based raises will be distributed as a onetime bonus payment or added to the base salary. Parrish also said a maximum percentage would need to be set so the best performing

administrators are compensated fairly. “We anticipate by August or September we may have a merit plan ready to go,” Trustee Linda Liddell said. “We have a couple months to finetune it.” Parrish said the plan must be in place by December to give administrators either the retroactive raise or bonus payment for this year. The board will discuss both proposals at the next board meeting on July 25.

Proposed project designed Board to keep $200 fee for nonresident’s library cards to deepen Wonder Lake • DREDGING Continued from page B1 The project is designed to deepen Wonder Lake by churning up soil at the bottom of the lake and then sucking it up, lake manager Randy Stowe said. The soil and water then will be deposited in the sediment drying facility, which is basically a dug-out basin with a concrete structure to control the flow of water. Some of the water will evaporate, and some of it, once it’s cleared of sediment, will be released back into the lake, he said. If the sediment can be sold, it may be used to finance additional dredging. Because the dredging would take a whole season, the association hopes to build the sediment drying facility this fall, Stowe said. If it doesn’t get the permit in time, the facility then would have to be built next year and the dredging couldn’t happen until 2015. The construction will take three to four months and won’t involve a lot of traffic coming and going, he said, adding that for nearby residents, it will be like living near the construction of a new house.

Continued from page B1

2015 is the earliest dredging could happen if the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency permit is not approved in time. The dredging project has faced several delays over the years as commenters raised concerns about possible pollutants buried in the sediment that would be released into the water with the dredging process. The association disputes these claims, citing multiple testings, and the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s public notice said the project would not cause any increases in pollutants except for some suspended solids near the dredging site. The establishment of the special service area that is paying for the project also faced opposition from those who argued against raising property taxes to fund a largely recreational project. An extension to the 30-day public notice period required as part of the IEPA’s permitting process has been requested. The notice period ended July 10.

The budget allocates $583,000 for a roofing project, the installation of security cameras and the replacement of two of the library’s six rooftop air-conditioning units. Scholtz plans on putting any savings into a capital reserve fund so that in 15 or so years when the library, which was built in 1974, needs to be replaced, the li-

OL Evans narrows list to 4 W. Michigan, Toledo, NIU and Cincinnati are senior’s finalists By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com

Northwest Herald file photo

Prairie Ridge offensive lineman Shane Evans says he has narrowed his choices to four after recently picking up his seventh Division I offer from Cincinnati. He said Wednesday he soon will make a final determination of where he’ll play. His list includes Western Michigan, Toledo, Northern Illinois and Cincinnati.

Shane Evans always has had a timetable for when he’d made a decision about where he will continue his football playing career. But as summer inches closer to fall, the prized senior Prairie Ridge offensive lineman is starting to hear from his suitors, warning that their respective recruting

classes are starting to fill up. He senses a decision is coming, but he’s not yet willing to make up his mind. Evans has narrowed his choices to four after recently picking up his seventh Division I offer from Cincinnati. He said Wednesday he soon will make a final determination of where he’ll play. His list includes Western Michigan, Toledo, Northern Illinois and Cincinnati. The 6-foot-4, 296-pound Evans also has garnered interest from Minnesota after attending a camp there recently. Evans said an offer could be coming from the Gophers, keeping them in the mix. Evans also participated in Big Ten camps at

Wisconsin and Illinois, but hasn’t gained the same level of interest from those schools as he did with Minnesota. Still, Evans wants to make a decision soon to keep his focus on his final high school season. His also has offers from Ball State, Bowling Green, Miami of Ohio and Wyoming. “It’s starting to get hard to hold out,” Evans said. “A lot of schools that have offered are really good and I really like them, but I think it’s nice to wait and see the options. But at the same time, I don’t want to wait too long.”

CRYSTAL LAKE RAIDERS SPARKLE SQUAD

UNTETHERED SPIRIT

No other major compares to Open By DOUG FERGUSON The Associated Press

Crystal Lake Raiders Sparkle Squad team members Allie Baran (left), 18, of Palatine, and Samantha Sterrett, 15, of McHenry, pose for a portrait in their cheerleading uniforms July 10 at Lippold Park in Crystal Lake. The Sparkle squad, a cheerleading team that is comprised of special needs youth from around the area, has won five consecutive Illinois Recreational Cheerleading Association state championships.

Cheer squad provides opportunity for special needs youth By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com Like most teams, the participants contribute with their strengths as best they can. Samantha Sterrett has a loud voice and loves dance moves. Carlie Schuring is not as adept with the verbal part, but physically handles more than most of her teammates. Allie Baran provides experience as the oldest member and embraces her role as

captain of the Crystal Lake Raiders Sparkle Squad, a cheerleading team that is comprised of special needs youth from around the area, which was started in 2005. The Sparkle Squad, now in its ninth year, has grown from six girls and two coaches on its first team to 14 members, six coaches and five cheer assistants last year. Sparkle also has flourished, with five consecutive Illinois Recreational Cheerleading Association state championships. Palatine resident Deb Baran had no idea about the journey on which she was

embarking in 2005. All Baran knew was she had cheerleading and dance in her background, along with a special needs daughter who craved to cheer. Baran and her coaching staff have to deal with more than other cheerleading teams. Some girls need help with movements, some can perform hand and arm gestures from wheelchairs. Others need help in various other forms, but the effort always is worth it.

GULLANE, Scotland – The practice round schedule posted each day at Muirfield is not the only way to determine how players are getting ready for the British Open. Johnson Wagner’s name was on the tee sheet at St. Andrews over the weekend. Geoff Ogilvy could be found on the other side of the country, on links courses like Turnberry, Royal Troon and Western Geoff Ogilvy Gailes. Justin Rose was at North Berwick. So were Bubba Watson and Luke Donald, who got in plenty of golf along the Firth of Forth the week before the British Open. It’s not unusual for players to take off from their regular tours a week before a major to prepare. What’s different about the British Open – isn’t everything? – is that preparations aren’t limited to the course they will be playing. “You can prepare for the U.S. Open on the range,” Ogilvy said Wednesday. “But you can only prepare for The Open on the course. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be the course you’re playing. The seaside courses here, they’re the only courses with turf like this, with sand like this. There’s something different about the seaside wind in Scotland. ... You can fly to Shanghai or Abu Dhabi and work on what you need at home. But you can’t work on what you need at home until you get here.”

‘D’ may have Almora on fast track to majors By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO

mmontemurro@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Class-A Kane County outfielder Albert Almora walked outside the Cougars’ clubhouse July 7, leaving behind his teammates, who were stunned silent. Cougars manager Mark Johnson, frustrated by his team’s poor effort and focus in a 12-5 loss to Quad Cities, had just finished a post-game speech not suitable for young ears and walked into his office to let his team mull over his demands. Despite going 3 for 4 with a walk,

at Colorado, 7:40 p.m. Friday, WGN, AM-720 two runs and a stolen base, Almora wore the loss as hard as any of his teammates, speaking softly as he tried to explain Kane County’s then 34-49 Midwest League record. Only hours before, Almora was all smiles as he described the bond inside the locker room. “I love playing with these guys. They’re like my brothers,” Almora

said. “It’s fun looking forward to the future and what could happen.” Almora, along with Double-A Tennessee infielder Javier Baez and Class-A Advanced outfielder Jorge Soler, represent the core of a farm system the organization is hoping eventually turns the Cubs into a perennial playoff contender. Baseball America released its top 50 prospect midseason rankings Monday and the Cubs were well represented. Baez (No. 10), Almora (No. 16) and Soler (No. 18) all made the list.

Emotional day for family of Elroy Fitzgerald Elroy Fitzgerald would have been 84 years old Thursday. Even in the steamy weather, Fitzgerald likely would have been outside enjoying a baseball game somewhere. Perhaps even with his old-school, 4-inch-thick, outside-theshirt chest protector while calling balls and strikes. That’s what Fitzgerald did. If there were an official position as McHenry County Sports Patriarch, Elroy would have held the position. No election would have been necessary. Fitzgerald died at his Cary home Jan. 13, so Thursday is an emotional day for the family of a man who was so instrumental for so many people

in sports and education. Fitzgerald’s four children have set up scholarships for two CaryGrove students each year – one male and one female – for education and athletics. The applicants went through an interview process like those for other various scholarships. Mickey Duncan and Tori White are the first recipients of the $500 scholarships this year. “My dad always valued education and was on the school board for 29 years,” said Linda Sanfilippo, one of Fitzgerald’s four children. “He gave us the gift of working hard. He always said, ‘Don’t compete just to make yourself better than somebody else, but to make yourself better in

PHIL LAWLER CLASSIC SUMMER BASEBALL TOURNAMENT

Martin leads Huntley into semifinals By PATRICK MASON pmason@shawmedia.com ELK GROVE – During the spring season, Mason Martin’s role on the Huntley baseball team was as spot starter and reliever. Now, after a successful summer, coach Andy Jakubowski projects him to be a valuable asset on the mound come spring. “He will definitely have a bigger role for us,” Jakubowski said of the senior. Martin baffled the No. 4 Elk Grove hitters all afternoon in the third round of the Phil Lawler Classic summer baseball tournament. He allowed only one run on four hits in a 6-1 victory. The No. 8 Red Raiders will face No. 3 Lake Park at 3 p.m. Thursday at Lake Park for a chance to play in the tournament state finals. Huntley’s Mark Skonieczny started the scoring in the top of the first inning with a good atbat. With two outs, he got ahead after working the count to 3-1 and jumped on a low fastball and hit it over the left-center wall for the game’s first run. Martin trotted out to the mound with a one-run lead and it was all he needed, as he didn’t allow a hit until the fourth inning. The Red Raiders added one more run in the third, three more in the fifth and another in the top of the seventh. In the three-run fifth, Huntley chased Elk Grove’s starter Alex Hudgin and ended up facing three different pitchers in the inning as the Huntley batters worked counts, drew walks and had timely hits. The extended inning allowed Martin to guzzle some water and stay fresh during the hot afternoon. Martin looked as sharp as ever, making one mistake

when he allowed a one-out solo home run in the bottom half of the seventh. “I just came in just like any other day, positive,” Martin said. “I wish I didn’t give up that homer, but what can you do. I’m always positive and I had a lot of confidence today. I kept the ball down and I only had one strikeout. I don’t need to strike people out and if I keep the ball low I get good success.” Martin struck out only one batter but kept the ball low and changed speeds well. His good command allowed him to induce 13 ground balls in Wednesday’s win, which his defense gobbled up. Second baseman Troy Cantu made several flashy plays to bail out his pitcher and keep runners off base. He factored into nine outs throughout the game after totaling six assists and three putouts. “Mason pitched a great game,” Cantu said. “I just needed to get that ball over to first and he gave us an opportunity to win by keeping the ball down. It’s so much easier to play, especially when he’s 1-2-3 every time.” Added Jakubowski: “I couldn’t be more proud of our pitching and defense, and we’re finding ways to score runs and that’s what it’s all about. Mason trusts his defense and he pitched a tremendous ball game.” By the numbers: In three tournament games this summer, Huntley pitchers have yet to allow a walk in 21 innings and have allowed only one run – the seventh-inning home run in Wednesday’s game. The Huntley defense has committed only two errors in the three-game span and had 13 defensive assists against Elk Grove.

Magee finally feels at home By NANCY ARMOUR The Associated Press BRIDGEVIEW – When Mike Magee left Chicago at 15 to train at U.S. Soccer’s academy in Florida, he figured he’d only be away from home for a few years. But two years soon became five, as he traded his address in Florida for one in New York. As five years became 10, he found himself in Los Angeles, playing for the Galaxy. The pull from home still was strong, but Magee and his girlfriend were building their own West Coast version with their little girl. They had friends, and he’d become a key part of the Galaxy, scoring six goals in the playoffs as Los Angeles won the past two MLS Cups. “Things were so good in L.A., that I didn’t feel like I’d ever leave there for soccer reasons. And then I think the longer it went on ...,” he said. “I always knew it would be a little better for my daughter if we were in Chicago. A little more help and she could be around more family,” Magee added. “Then one day it just kind of clicked that I needed to get back home.” The opportunity presented itself in the form of history. The Fire owned the rights to Robbie Rogers, who was contemplating a return to MLS after announcing he’s gay. It would be a monumental move, making Rogers the first openly gay male to play in a U.S. professional league,

Pregnant ex-Olympian dies, baby saved in Conn. HARTFORD, Conn. – A former Olympic and professional runner from Ethiopia who was due to give birth in three weeks collapsed at a restaurant and died, but doctors saved her baby, her friends said Wednesday. Meskerem Legesse, 26, who lived in Westport, was with her 2-year-old son when she collapsed at a Chinese restaurant in Hamden on Monday, said her friend Fatima Sene. She was transported to a hospital, where she died and the baby was saved, Sene said. The cause of death was unclear. Sene said Legesse had suffered heart problems in the past.

After trying – unsuccessfully – to convince Rogers to play in Chicago, the Fire agreed to send him to the Galaxy on May 25. But they wanted something big in return: Magee, who was the Galaxy’s leading scorer with six goals. “When we had the opportunity to look at their roster, see who we wanted, we felt he was the perfect fit for us,” said

Fire assistant coach Mike Matkovich, who has known – and coached Magee – since Magee’s days on youth teams. “We needed a guy up front to score goals,” Matkovich said. “Not only that, he’s a local guy, which is huge for us. So we were very excited to bring him back here.” Magee’s arrival coincided with a season-best, nine-game unbeaten streak. The points were desperately needed for a team still three spots out of the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.

The Big Ten and the Detroit Lions have announced a six-year agreement to play a bowl game at Ford Field, and a person familiar with the situation said the Atlantic Coast Conference will provide the opponent. The new bowl will start in the 2014 season and it has not been named or sponsored. The person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press the game will be a matchup of Big Ten and ACC teams. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because a formal announcement was to come later. The conferences will select the teams to play in the new game.

Evans isn’t quite ready to make decision • EVANS Continued from page C1 Evans said a few schools – including Western Michigan – have reached out to him to say they’re starting to run out of room in their 2014 recruiting class. The Broncos indicated they could be out of scholarships by week’s end. Evans doesn’t feel pressure to rush into a decision, but

he’s aware that he may have to end up passing on a school if he’s not yet willing to finalize his decision. Evans, who made another campus visit to NIU on Wednesday, said he’d like to make a decision and stick with it rather than changing his mind and throwing himself into limbo.

And I like to hear the whole crowd yell for us when we’re done.” Carlie Schuring, of Huntley, is an 11-year-old fifth-grader who is in her fifth year with Sparkle. Her mother, Maria Schuring, says the team has helped Carlie, who physically is fine but has a communication disorder. “It’s free speech therapy for us,” Maria said. “She’s social and outgoing and she didn’t have the communication skills. It hasn’t cured her disability, but the more words in her memory, the better it is for her. She uses a lot of words she learned from cheering.”

Some Sparkle members move their arms in their wheelchairs. Others in wheelchairs need assistance for movements. One boy on the team was helped by his grandfather. The coaches will face the team for cheers so the members can mirror them. For Deb Baran, the experience has been beyond rewarding. By Sparkle’s second year, the team was able to cheer for half a game. Now, it does entire games. “Who knew what this was going to be?” Baran said. “In nine years we’ve become stronger and stronger. We want to get the word out so that other families [with special needs children] know we are there. “When I did this the first year, I thought I’d start something like it with the Palatine Panthers (youth football program).

R&A to study male-only issue after Open Women members By PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press GULLANE, Scotland – Pragmatic yet defiant, the head of the Royal & Ancient issued a Hootie Johnson-like salvo in the latest battleground over male-only golf clubs: The British Open will not yield to pressure over three of its venerable clubs refusing to admit female members. The way Peter Dawson looks at it, to compare this to racial or religious discrimination is “absurd.” At his customary news conference on the eve of the British Open, the R&A chief executive faced a barrage of questions Wednesday about the no-women-allowed membership at Muirfield and two of the other nine venues in the tournament rotation, Troon

and Royal St. George’s. He was prepared for the issue, reading from notes that made it clear he believes single-sex clubs do little harm to the game and largely have been targeted by the media, politicians and interest groups. “Obviously the whole issue of gender Peter Dawson and single-sex clubs has been pretty much beaten to death recently,” Dawson said. “And we do, I assure you, understand that this is divisive. It’s a subject that we’re finding increasingly difficult, to be honest.” One reporter, touching on the racial discrimination that once pervaded the game, asked Dawson what was the differ-

ence between a male-only club and one that allowed only whites to join. “Oh, goodness me, I think that’s a ridiculous question,” he replied. “There’s a massive difference between racial discrimination, anti-Semitism, where sectors of society are downtrodden and treated very, very badly indeed. And to compare that with a men’s golf club, I think, is frankly absurd. There’s no comparison whatsoever.” He later added: “It’s just kind of, for some people, a way of life that they rather like. I don’t think in doing that they’re intending to [bring] others down or intending to do others any harm.” Dawson disputed any suggestion that male-only clubs stifle the growth of the sport. Still, he knows it will contin-

ue to be a point of contention – especially because Augusta National admitted its first female members last year – so the organization that governs golf outside the U.S. and Mexico plans to take it up once the Open is completed. He wouldn’t say what steps might be taken. “Our natural reaction is to resist these pressures, because we actually don’t think they have very much substance,” Dawson said. “But I’d like to stress we’re not so insular as to fail to recognize the potential damage that campaigns like this can do to the Open championship. And it is our championship committee’s responsibility to do what is best for the Open, and to maximize the benefits which the Open brings, not just to golf, but also to the local area.”

Justin Rose of England signs autographs for fans after a practice round Tuesday ahead of the British Open Championship at Muirfield, Scotland.

Chasing a rare title ‘two-fer’ U.S. Open champ hopes to add British trophy to his collection By JIM LITKE The Associated Press GULLANE, Scotland – A month after winning the U.S. Open, Justin Rose still hasn’t settled on an engraver to etch his name into the trophy he brought home from the Merion Golf Club. But the Englishman already has someone in mind: Garry Harvey, the silversmith who will engrave the name of British Open winner on the claret jug within moments of the final putt dropping Sunday at Muirfield. “I’m hoping I’ll get a twofor-one deal this year,” Rose chuckled Wednesday. “With the U.S. Open, you get it done yourself. So I’m hoping I’ll get a discount for bulk.”

It would be hard to come up with a better finish to what’s already been an eventful few weeks for Rose. Since capturing his first major, he’s dined with Prime Minister David Cameron, signed hundreds of autographs and watched from the Royal Box as countryman Andy Murray captured the Wimbledon men’s singles final. And just like Murray, who won the U.S. Open last fall, Rose would love to possess both trophies at the same time, a feat only six golfers – all among the game’s greats – have accomplished in the century-plus history of major championship golf. The roster of that exclusive club speaks to just how tough a task it is: Bobby Jones (twice; 1926 and 1930);

Gene Sarazen (1932); Ben Hogan (1953); Lee Trevino (1971); Tom Watson (1982); and Tiger Woods (2000). “The challenge for me is going to be staying in this tournament, not being dragged back to Merion every five minutes,” Rose said. “If I’m left alone, just me and my caddie, it’s pretty easy to focus on what I need to focus on. It’s when you have the outside distractions that prevents you from doing that. But when you’re playing a tournament, you’re in a controlled environment and it’s business as usual.” Rose acknowledged there were only so many similarities from a visual standpoint between the rain-soaked Merion course, located in suburban Philadelphia, and surprisingly dry Murfield, a seaside links course on Scotland’s eastern coastline. “They’re polar opposite in

the sense of how the ball is reacting on the ground, but they’re in the sense of strategy. At Merion, I hit a lot of irons off the tee. I played defensively, sort of conservatively, and I felt that was the best way to approach it. ... I was lucky that my game plan turned out to be exactly the right one, with 1-over par winning. That’s my challenge this week, to see the golf course the right way and set a game plan that not only keeps me out of trouble,” he added, “but is aggressive enough to make the most of the opportunities when they come around. “So I think for me,” Rose summed up, “it’s going to be quite a cautious game plan off the tee.” He grew up playing links courses, and nearly set the golf world on its ear by contending at the 1998 British Open as a 17-year-old amateur before slipping back to fourth place.

at Muirfield? Just don’t ask players GULLANE, Scotland – The question couldn’t have caught Rory McIlroy by surprise because almost every player preceding him in the interview room at the British Open already had been asked for his thoughts on the hot issue of the day. When the tabloids collide, as they tend to do at major events in Britain, themes emerge. One this week was how 77-year-old Gary Player looked in the ESPN Magazine body issue, and most players agreed that the threetime Open champion looked pretty good. But this was a little more socially significant than body tone on an aging golfer. This was about equality and golf, and why the people who run it in the British Isles are even more stubborn than the green jackets at Augusta used to be when it comes to clubs like Muirfield and its men-only policy. McIlroy smiled nervously, looking around the room for what seemed like minutes before finally answering. “Muirfield is a great golf course,” he said. Little debate there. Scotland is the home of golf, and the links course that sits across the Firth of Forth from the Old Course at St. Andrews is a gem with some pedigree of its own. Old Tom Morris laid it out on an old horse racing track in 1891, and members of the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers have made it their home ever since. That those members are all men is no accident. It may be that the policy is as out of place today as hickory shafts and gutta percha balls, but it’s still as firmly entrenched now as it was 122 years ago. There’s no rationale for it in today’s world, and no real way to defend it. When British golf officials try – as the head of the Royal & Ancient did once again Wednesday on the eve of the British Open – they babble on about things like getting out of the marital bed for Saturday golf rounds with the chums as though it was an ancient birthright reserved for the men of the United Kingdom. “It’s just what people kind of do,” said R&A chief executive Peter Dawson. Not that the 156 players teeing it up Thursday in the first round of the Open needed to hear that. They were going to play if they had to swim the Firth of Forth to get here, and none seemed terribly concerned that the club – which allows women to play golf – doesn’t allow them to become members. Equal rights for women golfers? Not sure about that, but did you see that rough on the 18th hole? “I don’t make the policies here,” Tiger Woods said. “I’m not a member, so I’m not going to speak for the club.”

VIEWS Tim Dahlberg Dawson did enough of that Wednesday, launching a spirited defense of the ways of private clubs much like Hootie Johnson did a decade ago when the then-chairman declared Augusta National would not bow to pressure to admit women “at the point of a bayonet.” The club kept Johnson’s promise, not relenting until last year when former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was one of two women finally issued green jackets. Muirfield eventually will add women members, too, something Dawson seemed to acknowledge when he said the R&A is finding the issue increasingly difficult to handle. That’s fine and will generate some applause, although it’s hard to work up too much enthusiasm for the plight of well-off women who aren’t permitted to be members like well-off men at certain golf clubs. Martha Burk found that out when her attempt to force Augusta National to admit women fizzled on the eve of the 2003 Masters. Only a handful of people showed up at a protest that turned into a freak show complete with a drag queen and a self-described Ku Klux Klan imperial wizard. It forced Burk to give up her active campaign for equality in a place almost every male golfer in the world couldn’t join, either. In a perfect world, Muirfield and the two other courses in the nine-course Open rotation that are also male-only would have women members. They’re an anachronism and even the millionaire golfers who will chase the claret jug this week grudgingly will admit to that. “I just think it’s something that a lot of guys don’t want to get themselves into because it’s quite a controversial issue,” McIlroy said the second time he was asked about it. “It’s something that shouldn’t happen these days. It’s something that we shouldn’t even be talking about. So that’s why I guess a lot of people don’t want to talk about it.” At least McIlroy gave it a try, something that can’t be said for many of his fellow pros. They want nothing to do with anything that might interfere with their golf or ability to make a good living, no matter how pure the cause. The only lead they want to take is on the scoreboard at the British Open.

Preparing for the British Open unlike any other major golf tournament • BRITISH OPEN Continued from page C1 Tiger Woods, a three-time Open champion, arrived Sunday morning and has played nine holes a day. There was a time he would leave home a week early and head to Ireland with Mark O’Meara and David Duval, both former Open champions, and play the links courses there. Woods loves to recall his first experience with links golf in 1995 as the U.S. Amateur champion. He played the Scottish Open at Carnoustie, and then drove down the North Sea shoreline to St. Andrews for the British Open. “I absolutely fell in love with it, to be able to dink a 5-iron from 150 yards and bump it on the ground, or vice versa – have 260 out and hit a 4-iron and it bounces over the green. That, to me, is pretty

neat. Because we play everywhere around the world – an airborne game where you have to hit the ball straight up in the air and make it stop. Here it’s different. A draw will go one distance, a fade will go another, and they’re so dramatic. And I just absolutely love it.” True, adjusting to links golf can just as easily take place at Muirfield, where the British Open starts Thursday. Defending champion Ernie Els came down from Castle Stuart and has stayed at Muirfield, wrapping up his final practice round Wednesday just after 6 p.m. But there are no tricks at Muirfield. There hardly are any blind shots. Most of the bunkers are in plain view from the tee. That’s one of the reasons that Muirfield is a favorite of so many players, who use words like “fair” and “honest test,” which aren’t always heard on other links courses.

Tiger Woods reacts after putting during a practice round Wednesday ahead of the British Open Championship at Muirfield, Scotland. “I think of all the Open venues, it’s probably one of the least quirky ones,” Donald said Wednesday. “It’s quite straightforward. Obviously with the weather conditions, it’s playing firm and fast. It’s going to be about controlling your golf

ball this week. And the weather looks good. The course is set up just the way the R&A would like it. It’s bouncy. It’s a little bit of a breeze out there. Firm conditions are a good protector of the golf course, and we certainly have that this week.”

The forecast is dry for the week, with perhaps some mist on the weekend. Even though officials had the course just the way they wanted it early in the week, they have turned on a few sprinklers in the evening to keep it from getting overcooked. “I think it’s no exaggeration to say that in my time at the R&A with direct involvement in The Open Championship, which goes back to 2000, factors have combined this year to make this the best course set up we’ve ever had in that period,” R&A chief executive Peter Dawson said. “The course is just as we want it. It’s hard. It’s fast. It’s in wonderful condition. The rough is just right. I think the players are enjoying it.” It all starts to unfold Thursday morning when Peter Senior of Australia hits the opening tee shot. Among the early start-

ers are Els, Rose and Brandt Snedeker in one group, with Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and Hideki Matsuyama a few groups behind. The afternoon groups include Woods, Graeme McDowell and Louis Oosthuizen, along with Masters champion Adam Scott, Donald and Matt Kuchar. Tom Watson won at Muirfield in 1980 by four shots over Lee Trevino, which was a rarity in one respect. That was the only Open in the past six times at Muirfield that golf’s oldest championship was decided by more than one shot. Els won in a record four-man playoff the last time in 2002. Muirfield is seen as a thorough examination that requires solid contact in any weather, which might explain why only the best players seem to win here – Els, Nick Faldo twice, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Walter Hagen, Trevino.

time forgiving MLB for the installing the DH, though. Remember the movie “Bull Durham,” when Kevin Costner’s character Crash Davis launches his crude rant about the qualities and superficialities of life. “I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter,” he said. The NL guys, naturally, tout the purity of the no-DH game and the additional substitution strategy it provides. Many pitchers simply find it fun to try to hit – even if it means sometimes looking silly swinging meekly at strike three. Yes, DH conflicts keep on coming – even in spring training. The home team is supposed to decide whether or not to use it and sometimes managers disagree. Cincinnati’s Dusty Baker wanted to use Shin-Soo Choo in that role for an exhibition game in March as a precaution for his tight right quadriceps, but Arizona’s Kirk Gibson insisted on keeping the pitcher in the lineup so he could let starter Brandon McCarthy take some swings. Baker and Gibson argued before the game about it at home plate. Gibson prevailed because the Diamondbacks were the host team. When the games count, of course, the DH is used in AL ballparks and pitchers bat in NL venues. This year, that will force Detroit manager Jim Leyland to leave designated hitter Victor Martinez out of the lineup at Miami on the final weekend of the regular season while the other teams in the league use their DH as usual. If the AL Central or wild-card races are still unsettled then, that’s the kind of potentially pennant-altering wrinkle that could someday prompt a change. “I think that we need to get a unified set of rules, and I believe that we will get there some day,” the 68-year-old Leyland said. “I don’t know if I will be there to see it, but I think we will get there. I don’t care which way we go, but I think that without question we need to do it.”

NEW YORK – Teams spent $219.9 million on signing bonuses for selections in baseball’s amateur draft this year, up 6 percent from $207.8 million at a similar point last year. The rise followed a 10 percent drop from a record $233.6 million in 2011, the last year before restrictions imposed by baseball’s collective bargaining agreement with players. Eleven teams went over their signing bonus pools – one more than last year – and will pay a total of $1.8 million in tax, according to preliminary figures compiled by Major League Baseball. But no club went over by more than 5 percent and reached the second level of penalties, which would cause a club to forfeit its next first-round draft pick. Baseball’s labor contract assigns a slot value to all picks in the first 10 rounds, with the amount starting at $7,790,400 this year for the first pick and decreasing to $135,300 for the final selections of the 10th round. If a team fails to sign a player, the amount of that slot is deducted from its pool. Only eight players in the first 10 rounds didn’t sign, including one first-rounder: high school pitcher Phillip Bickford, selected by Toronto with the 10th overall selection. For the 11th through 40th rounds, the amounts of bonuses exceeding $100,000 a pick are added to a team’s total for calculating the tax. A club exceeding its pool total faces escalating penalties, starting with a 75 percent tax on the overage, graduating to a 100 percent tax and the loss of its next two first-round picks. Exceeding their thresholds were Atlanta ($156,950 tax), the Cubs ($383,925), Kansas City ($59,025), the Los Angeles Dodgers ($190,050), the New York Yankees ($85,500), Philadelphia ($55,125), Pittsburgh ($73,350), St. Louis ($243,375), San Francisco ($169,950), Seattle ($220,500) and Texas ($170,775). Friday was the deadline for draft picks to sign, except for players who have exhausted eligibility for college baseball – a group that may sign up until a week before next year’s draft. The players with the later deadline totaled $1.6 million in bonuses for the 2012 draft.

If not for hand injury, Almora might be playing up in Daytona • ALMORA Continued from page C1 “Those guys will all make it to the majors. It’s just a question if they’ll be solid regulars or stars,” Baseball America editor Jim Callis said. “There’s a real chance all three players will become legitimate players for the Cubs.” While offensive production often garners the most attention at any level, Almora’s defense could help him quickly climb through the minors as some people in baseball believe his defense is nearly ready for the majors. “I’m just blessed, I guess, that God gave me the ability to play the outfield pretty good,” Almora said. But for all his natural talent and success with the Cougars this season, Almora had to overcome the first big test

of his young career. Almora missed the Cougars’ first 42 games after left wrist surgery. He broke the hamate bone, a common baseball injury, during spring and finally debuted for Kane County on May 22. Almora said he hasn’t been experiencing any soreness or pain in his wrist, although he does wear a protective brace on his left wrist when he’s on base as it’s sensitive when he slides because of scar tissue. “It was something that really caught me by surprise and shocked me because I’ve never been on the [disabled list] or hurt really bad like that,” Almora said. “You always play with bumps and bruises, but something involving surgery, stitches and rehab, it was something my body appreciated more than my mind. I wanted to get out there real bad.” Since then, Almora has been a force at the plate.

He’s hitting .333 with three home runs, has 20 RBIs and 33 runs in 44 games and if it weren’t for the broken bone, Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said there could have been discussions right now in moving Almora up to Daytona. “It might be a different conversation if he didn’t miss Albert Almora t h a t m o n t h and a half,” Hoyer said. “He’s been really impressive there, but that’s something that we’re still evaluating.” The pressures that comes with being a first-round, No. 6 overall 2012 draft pick, let alone for a franchise pursuing its first World Series title since 1908, isn’t lost on Almora. “It’s a big responsibility and I take it to heart,” said

Almora, who visited Wrigley Field on July 9 during the Cougars’ off day. “I definitely work the way I’m supposed to.” Almora credits his experience playing for USA Baseball for three years on the 14U, 16U and 18U teams for helping mold him into who he is today. And it extends beyond his on-field responsibilities. Almora, 19, regularly dedicates time before and after games to signing autographs for fans. Before Sunday’s game at Kane County, Almora had the longest autograph line among his teammates and fulfilled every request, even posing for pictures until a Cougars staff member signaled it was time to finish getting ready for the game. “If we can sign 3,000 autographs in three hours for Topps, a card company, I’m pretty sure I can take 10 minutes from my time to sign for

fans,” Almora said. “We play this game for the fans.” The time he devotes to fans as well as his game isn’t an act, either, according to Johnson, who is in his first year managing the Cougars. “The way he goes about his business and the way he thinks and the way he understands is way beyond his years,” Johnson said. “Just by the way he comes in every day, he’s always asking the right questions.” Being the youngest player on the Cougars hasn’t held back Almora. “To be honest, I don’t look at it as I want to move up,” Almora said. “Of course, at the end of the day, you want to get to Wrigley. Right now, I’m just happy I’m playing somewhere. They could send me to China if they want, as long as I’m playing for the organization and helping them in some way, I’ll be happy.”

Battalini building his business

FIVE-DAY PLANNER TEAM

THURSDAY

By STEVE SARLEY sportsdesk@nwherald.com Spring Grove’s Rick Battalini never thought he’d be a maven in the fishing tackle industry. He had worked as a sales manager, owned a flooring company and served as a general contractor, building homes. He never was involved in tackle. “The construction business had died and I didn’t want to work for somebody else, so I was online looking for all kind of different businesses to buy,” Battalini said. “It seemed like everyone wanted a ton of money for nothing but customer lists. There was nothing tangible to be had.” That was when he heard about the availability of Yellow Bird Products. Battalini had carried a love for the sport since being introduced to it as a child by his grandfather. The calls were made and soon, Battalini was the owner of Yellow Bird Products. Yellow Bird is the manufacturer of a number of items that carry esteemed reputations in tackle, such as the Yellow Bird planer board, the Doctor Spoon, the KB Spoon and the Prescott Spinner rig. Battalini bought the Yellow Bird Company from Bob Shirley in 2009. Shirley, one of the principals in the Ed Shirley Sports chain of outdoor stores, had gotten tired of the business and found an anxious buyer in Battalini. Battalini, 52, lives with his wife, Darlene, and their three children – Sam, 14; Carley, 18; and

Rick Battalini (second from right) and his family pose after a successful day fishing on Lake Michigan. Nick, 21. One of his desires had been to be able to work near his home, so he moved the company to Johnsburg. “I bought Yellow Bird because I felt it would be a great way to deal with people and their passions,” Battalini said. “What a great way to make a living. Plus, I love fishing and the outdoors. I was able to take a reputable company with a long history and bring it up to today’s standards and beyond.” Things have been difficult for tackle manufacturers in our country’s poor economy. Even the largest corporations have seen profits shrink as margins erode. Things haven’t been easy for

OUTDOORS Steve Sarley out right along a shade line cast by trees, for example. Points are good fish attracting spots. Points don’t have to be visible on the surface but usually are. A point that has wind blowing into it can often be the location for a memorable day of fishing. Conversely, inside turns, which are pockets rather than points, are major fish collectors when the wind blows toward them. There’s an old adage that says that you can eliminate 80 percent of the water before you start to fish. I hope I’ve given you a few tips to get you started in that process.

FISHING REPORT Northern Illinois: Dave Kranz from Dave’s Bait, Tackle and Taxidermy in Crystal Lake reports: “Hot summer days are when the catfish spawn and can be caught in good numbers. Use cut bait or stink bait for best results. Smallmouth bass are hitting on the lower Fox River from Algonquin to St. Charles. Use small spinners, Beetle Spins or 3-inch golden roach minnows. Heavy weeds in most ponds make for some great frog fishing. I like a Spro frog on a heavy rod with 50-pound Power Pro line. “Bow hunters, it’s time to take some shots to get ready. I like to take 10 shots, five to six days a week, rather than 50 shots on one day. Think about how many we shoot when we hunt – it’s usually just one. Honest John from C.J. Smith’s resort on Grass Lake sends word, “Nice catches of largemouth bass were reported at the mouth of Bluff Lake, in the bay and along the piers on the back bay of Lake Marie. Plastics, especially black Chigger Craws, are working extremely well. Nightcrawlers or medium golden roaches are the best live baits. Nice catfish are being caught and the channels are the places to be. Nightcrawlers, stinkbait or shrimp are all good bait choices. Crappies have start-

Battalini. The pressure of owning a business in a tough industry is tremendous. The days are exceptionally long and you have to add in all of the time spent traveling all over the country to fishing expos and conventions for the purpose of promoting your products. “Three-and-a-half years later, business is holding its own,” Battalini said. “We are trying to regain what we have lost, which is an entire generation of fishermen that were lost by the past owners. We’ve listened to our customers and modernized the packaging and tweaked our offerings. We are growing, not by leaps and bounds, but we are growing every year.”

Basics win out more often than not I’ve spent a lot of ink the past few weeks talking about where to fish and offering a few tips on how to attack small water. Whether your choice of water is a local pond or Fox Lake, the Fox River or a small stream, there are a number of things that are important to keep in mind. Fish operate under a few basic primal needs, like food, light, temperature and protection. The rules aren’t steadfast and exceptions always can be found, but for the most part, the basics win out more often than not. Fish like cover. Big fish need cover to keep their meals from seeing them and the meals need cover to keep from being seen. To catch the most and the biggest fish, be prepared to keep cleaning weed debris from your hooks and to lose a few lures every time out. Sometimes, fish hold so close to objects in the water that they look like a part of the object when shown on the screen of your fish finder. Fish usually feed in the shallows. They like to attack their baitfish meals by quickly blitzing in from deeper water. Look for shallow water that is adjacent to depth. A long, slowly tapering bottom is an area that big fish will avoid. Look for quick dropoffs. Think about your local community swimming pool. It’s probably 8 feet deep at one end and 3 feet at the other. It will get deeper slowly from 3 to 5 feet and then dive down to 8 feet almost at once. If that pool were filled with fish, they’d move into the shallows to eat, but they’d be hanging out right at that 5-foot dropoff all of the rest of the time. In spring, fish seek warm water. When it gets hot, they seek cooler water. That’s one of the reasons fishing right now is better in early morning while the water is cooler from the low night time temps. Look for areas where rainwater runs into a lake or stream. That cool rainwater will draw fish to that area like a proverbial magnet. Cloud cover is important to fishing success. A cloudy day is much easier to fish than when you have those skies that are totally azure without a sign of white overhead. Fish will seek shaded areas to escape the sun and often hang

ed appearing again in the channel between Petite and Fox lakes. Small fatheads or spikes tipped on a Mini-Mite jig are working well. Bluegills are coming on strong in the shallow channels with trout worms working well. Walleye are still biting, especially over the sand bars in Lake Marie. Drift over them using XL fatheads or leeches for some real action. The Spring Lake Bridge is producing some walleye, and many right from shore. Lake Michigan: Captain Bob Rossa of Migrator Charters (ALakeMichiganCharter.com) says, “Fishing on Lake Michigan has been exceptional for the past few days. Big Cohoes are still around, and huge kings and steelhead are showing up. Most fish are being taken in the top 70 feet of the water column. Fish from 120 feet to 190 feet of water. Moonshine’s Atomic Melon RV, and white Hot Spot flashers with white Siggs Flies tied 24-inches behind them have been two of the best baits. Perch season is closed for the month of July.”

Volunteers needed for Clearbrook Outing The Northrop Grumman fishing club is holding its 17th annual Clearbrook Outing on Thursday afternoon. The club members host a couple of busloads of residents from various Clearbrook center locations for an afternoon of fishing, games, food, drink, dessert, prizes and fun. Volunteer help is needed. The Clearbrook residents are adults with mental and/or physical challenges and this outing is the year’s biggest event for many of them. The outing takes place on the banks of the pond located on the grounds of Harper College in Palatine at Route 72 and Roselle Road.

THE ESPYS

James wins 3 trophies By BETH HARRIS The Associated Press LOS ANGELES – LeBron James padded his trophy collection, receiving three at the ESPY Awards, including male athlete of the year for helping the Miami Heat win a second straight NBA championship. James also won in the championship performance and NBA player categories, completing a sweep of the three awards he won last year. He shared in the best team award WednesLeBron James day night. James beat out Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps for male athlete honors. Serena Williams won two awards, including female athlete of the year. She defeated a pair of Olympians, gymnast Gabby Douglas and swimmer Missy Franklin, and former Baylor basketball star Brittney Griner. Williams didn’t attend because she’s playing a tournament in Sweden. Peterson and Phelps also won two awards each. Jon Hamm, the star of AMC’s “Mad Men” and a noted St. Louis Cardinals fan, hosted the 21st annual show from the Nokia Theatre. Quarterback Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M won male college athlete honors after flying in earlier from Hoover, Ala., where he attended SEC media days. Griner, who now plays for the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury, won female college athlete. Peterson won trophies for NFL player and best comeback, while Cabrera won as best MLB player. Williams won female tennis player, giving her eight career ESPYs. Phelps also claimed best male Olympian, while teenage swimming sensation Missy Franklin won best female Olympian. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick won as breakthrough athlete.

ESPY AWARD WINNERS LOS ANGELES – Winners at the 21st annual ESPY Awards presented Wednesday: Male Athlete: LeBron James, Miami Heat Female Athlete: Serena Williams Team: Miami Heat Coach-Manager: Rick Pitino, Louisville Cardinals Breakthrough Athlete: Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers Game: Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs, Game 6, NBA finals Record-breaking Performance: Michael Phelps Championship Performance: LeBron James, Miami Heat Play: Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina football Moment: Jack Hoffman touchdown at Nebraska spring game Upset: No. 15 seed Florida Gulf Coast beats No. 2 seed Georgetown in NCAA tournament Comeback: Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings Male College Athlete: Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M quarterback Female College Athlete: Brittney Griner, Baylor basketball Male Action Sport Athlete: Nyjah Huston, skateboarding Female Action Sport Athlete: Stephanie Gilmore, surfing Baseball Player: Miguel Cabrera, Detroit Tigers NBA Player: LeBron James, Miami Heat WNBA Player: Candace Parker, Los Angeles Sparks NFL Player: Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings NHL Player: Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh Penguins MLS Player: Thierry Henry, New York Red Bulls Bowler: Pete Weber Driver: Ryan Hunter-Reay Fighter: Floyd Mayweather Male Golfer: Tiger Woods Female Golfer: Stacey Lewis Jockey: Joel Rosario Male Tennis Player: Novak Djokovic Female Tennis Player: Serena Williams International athlete: Usain Bolt Male Olympian: Michael Phelps Female Olympian: Missy Franklin Male Athlete with a Disability: Jeremy Campbell, pentathlon Female Athlete with a Disability: Jessica Long, swimming College Athletic Program: North Carolina women’s athletics and UCLA men’s athletics Arthur Ashe Courage Award: Robin Roberts Jimmy V ESPY for Perserverance: Dick and Rick Hoyt

gave his all in Wednesday’s Alpine time trial. His face contorted in a grimace of effort as he sprinted out of the saddle to the line, while spectators whipped up a thunderclap of noise by banging their fists on the barriers. Froome, having set off behind Contador, sped in a few moments

later. He, too, rode hard but looked more comfortable with his easyon-the-eye pedaling style. Contador shook his head and shrugged his shoulders when a TV flashed that Froome beat his time by 9 seconds. This was another opportunity lost for Contador – 4 minutes, 34 seconds back in sec-

ond place in the overall standings – to make victory for Froome in Paris on Sunday at least feel less inevitable. “Froome is in impressive shape,” was the understated assessment of the 2007 and ’09 winner who was stripped of his 2010 victory for a failed doping test.

Mom resists risking good money on son’s bad credit Dear Abby: We have a grown son who is married with his own family and home. He and his wife have jobs. My husband and I are semiretired – not rich, but we live comfortably. Our credit score is great. My son wants us to co-sign a loan for him. I know his credit is not good because I get phone calls from collection agents looking for him. We really don’t want to co-sign. How do I explain this to him? I feel because I’m his mother it obligates me. I also am afraid he will stop letting

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips us see the grandkids if I refuse. – Scared Of The Dotted

Line Dear Scared: Since debt collectors are calling because your son isn’t paying his bills, do not co-sign for a loan for him. If you do, you could wind up having to pay it off yourselves. Your son is an adult. That you are his mother does not obligate you to assume re-

sponsibility in case he doesn’t pay his bills. If he retaliates by not allowing you to see the grandkids, so be it. If you knuckle under to emotional blackmail, it won’t stop, and it could affect your standard of living for the rest of your lives. Dear Abby: I’m in high school, and my daddy just passed away. I want to know why I have so much anger and hurt about this. I feel like he never got to see me reach any of my goals in life. The main goal was to see my graduation. What is the best way I can

Options solve sweating problem Dear Dr. K: I sweat heavily, day and night. With summer here, I’m desperate. I’m in my 70s, well past menopause. Dear Reader: Doctors call excessive sweating hyperhidrosis. It is not a rare problem, and I’ve treated many patients for it. In every case, they waited a long time before talking about the problem. That’s because they thought it was such a trivial issue that they didn’t want to waste the doctor’s time. Hyperhidrosis is not trivial. Excessive sweating can dampen your social life and interfere with work. Some people with hyperhidrosis sweat through their clothing two or three times a day. Fortunately, there are several ways to treat it. Why do we need to sweat? Our body tries to keep its inside temperature constant, at around 98.6 degrees F. When, because of exercise or hot weather, we start to heat up, our body needs to lose heat. When we sweat, the evaporation of sweat from our skin causes the loss of heat. How do we sweat? Sweat is made by little glands under the skin – little sacs that fill with fluid, and then release that fluid through a little pore or channel to spill out on the

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff surface of the skin. The type of sweat glands called eccrine glands are activated by signals from the brain. Those signals travel through nerves to your skin. The nerve endings release a chemical called acetylcholine. People with hyperhidrosis are overly sensitive to acetylcholine. In response, they produce much more sweat than average. In most cases, excessive sweating isn’t dangerous; it’s simply embarrassing and inconvenient. But that’s reason enough to want to do something about it. Treatments for hyperhidrosis include the following: • Topical antiperspirants are effective for underarms as well as hands and feet. Look for a preparation containing an aluminum salt, such as aluminum chloride. The more salt the antiperspirant contains, the longer it will work. If overthe-counter antiperspirants aren’t strong enough, try a prescription-strength preparation. • In iontophoresis, your

hands or feet are submerged in lukewarm water for 20 to 30 minutes while a mild electric current is passed through the water. This appears to temporarily block sweat glands. As many as 10 initial sessions usually are required to stop sweating. These are followed by weekly maintenance sessions. This procedure also can be used on underarms. • Botulinum toxin A (Botox) injections are FDA-approved for underarm hyperhidrosis and also are effective for hands and feet. Multiple injections are required. Botox blocks the release of acetylcholine in the nerve endings. This prevents the nerve cells from communicating with sweat glands. • Some doctors prescribe oral medications that reduce the activity of acetylcholine. But acetylcholine has many functions in the body, so these drugs can have many side effects. If your problem is severe and other options don’t work, you may need to consider surgery to remove the affected sweat glands.

get my mind off this? – Young Girl In Alabama Dear Young Girl: I am sorry for your loss, which is a particularly difficult one at your age. It’s important you understand the feelings you are experiencing are normal. Anger is a part of the grieving process, and it may take some time for you to get beyond it. The best way to “get your mind off this” would be to find a safe place to TALK about it. A grief support group would be helpful. Your clergyperson could help you find one and so could your

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

Thursday, July 18, 2013 • PlanitNorthwest.com/buzz

A Rolling Stone cover story featuring a glamorous photo of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is generating controversy, with several retailers including CVS and Walgreens announcing Wednesday they will not carry the issue. The cover of the magazine’s Aug. 1 edition is a photo in which Tsarnaev looks more like one of the rock stars that usually grace it than a suspect in the April 15 bombings at the marathon finish line that killed three and wounded more than 260. A preview on the magazine’s website says the story by contributing editor Janet Reitman traces how “a bright kid with a charming future became a monster.” Rolling Stone editors said in a statement that the story falls within the traditions of journalism and the magazine’s commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage. “The fact that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is young, and in the same age group as

More celeb news at PlanitNorthwest.com/buzz many of our readers, makes it all the more important for us to examine the complexities of this issue and gain a more complete understanding of how a tragedy like this happens,” the statement said. The cover was ill-conceived at best and reaffirms a message that destruction gains fame for killers, Boston Mayor Tom Menino wrote in a letter to Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner.

Travis’ brother arrested Authorities in North Carolina say a brother of country singer Randy Travis was arrested after sheriff’s deputies found a methamphetamine lab inside his home. Union County sheriff’s investigators searched the home of 50-year-old David Traywick on Tuesday and said they found a working meth lab. Deputies arrested Traywick, his wife, Jessica, and two other women, charging them with conspiracy to traffic meth.

Sara Ervin picks out confections from a display case for a customer at Ethereal Confections in Woodstock.

Ethereal everything Chocolate the heart of Woodstock shop By JIM DALLKE jdallke@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – “There’s nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with chocolate.” Two Woodstock chocolatiers have turned the famous saying by author Linda Grayson into a business model with the recent opening of Ethereal Confections, a chocolate shop with a side of, well, just about anything. Mary and Sara Ervin are sisters-in-law, but you would think they’ve known each other since birth. The two, along with Sara’s husband Michael Ervin, opened the Woodstock Square shop July 5 with a menu that provides much more than a simple piece of chocolate. Along with the 30 flavors of truffles and homemade bean-roasted chocolate, patrons have their choice of more than half-a-dozen desserts ranging from lemon meringue pie to a chocolate hazelnut macaroon torte. Working with organic ingredients and buying from local businesses whenever possible, the shop also offers a variety of small plates like artisan cheeses from Wisconsin and small-batch roasted peanuts from Chicago, among other dishes. Add a full coffee bar, beer, wine, hard cider and craft cocktails, Ethereal Confections can satisfy virtually any craving. But, according to the Ervins, chocolate has always been the backbone of the business. “That’s really the heart of our business. We’re a chocolate business,” Sara said. “We just sort of added a coffee bar on and then got carried away.” Before moving into the new space at 113 S. Benton St., Ethereal Confections was in a 400-squarefoot shop on Main Street in Woodstock. The shop sold only chocolates and focused largely on their wholesale business. Moving into the new shop gave the Ervins the space to use their creativity to put together a store truly unique to McHenry County. “There’s nowhere else in Woodstock where you can go and get a glass of wine and a dessert – without sitting down for dinner – or get a cocktail of the caliber we make,” Mary said. “After you get out of a movie or the opera house, maybe you still want to continue your evening. You want to have a nice drink and a dessert. So that’s how

that sort of expanded.” Like most chocolatiers, Sara and Mary buy most of their chocolate from other sellers and melt it down to come up with their own recipes. But with the opening of the new store, the two decided to begin roasting their own chocolate directly from the cocoa bean, creating flavors that no other chocolate shop can make. Ethereal Confections imports cocoa beans from Belize, the Dominican Republic and Madagascar, toying with roasting times and flavor combinations to create a variety of different tastes.

Fed: Growth improves moderately throughout U.S. The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The U.S. economy grew throughout the country from late May through early July, bolstered by the housing recovery, consumers and more factory output. A Federal Reserve survey released Wednesday showed 11 of the Fed banking districts reported “modest to moderate” growth, while Dallas reported “strong” growth for the second straight survey. Housing construction and home prices im-

proved, while consumer spending increased in most districts, fueled by rising car and truck sales. The housing recovery is also driving more production of lumber, materials and construction equipment. The report says hiring held steady or increased in most districts. But employers in some districts were reluctant to hire permanent or fulltime workers. The Beige Book survey is based on anecdotal reports from businesses. The latest report painted an optimistic picture of an economy growing

at a steady pace. Job gains have picked up this year, bolstering incomes and enabling consumers to spend more. Employers have added an average of 202,000 jobs a month this year, up from about 180,000 a month in the previous six months. Still, growth has been weak. Most economists expect growth slowed in the April-June quarter to an annual rate of 1 percent or less, down from a tepid 1.8 percent rate at the start of the year. That would mark the third straight quarter of growth below 2 percent.

Check background of financial help providers Unfortunately, when people are in financial trouble, a lot of unscrupulous businesses are only too happy to “take care” of vulnerable families and individuals. The National Foundation for Credit Counseling’s motto is: “Knowing the difference can make all the difference.” NFCC is a national not-for-profit, 501(c) 3 organization, accredited by the Council on Accreditation for Children and Family Services, to which credit and housing counseling agencies, such as CCCS of McHenry County Inc., belong; it is the national voice for its members, which are nonprofit, mission-driven, community-based agencies. NFCC members, often known as consumer credit counseling services, represent accredited agencies with high standards, ethical practices, certified counselors, and policies which help consumers achieve financial stability. NFCC member agencies provide a variety of services including: Budget counseling and education; debt management programs; counseling referral services; financial literacy courses; bankruptcy counseling and education; and housing counseling. Daily reports surface in the news from the Federal Trade Commission and the attorney general’s office that lawsuits have been filed against unscrupulous businesses which extract large fees and deliver little or no service to their clients. Possibly worst among the offenders are the businesses which promise to assist people whose homes are in foreclosure. Since

MONEY MATTERS Virginia Peschke foreclosure filings are public record, these businesses have no trouble accessing the names and addresses of families in this vulnerable position. Promises are made that foreclosure can be ceased and/or mortgages can be modified, but only with the help of these supposedly “professional” providers. When confronted by the prospect of the loss of their homes, many persons fall prey to these businesses which promise the salvation of the home for only a few thousand dollars upfront. First of all, it is illegal to charge upfront fees for U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) mortgage assistance, and secondly, HUD-approved agencies do not charge anything for their approved counseling and modification assistance. In Illinois, since it is a judicial state with respect to foreclosure, a notice of foreclosure does not represent an immediate seizure of a homeowner’s property. Often foreclose may take several months before a sheriff’s sale takes place. In the meantime, with the help of a HUD-approved agency, homeowners are given a list of options, which they may choose to pursue. Options range from bringing the mortgage current, negotiating a loan modification, initiating a short sale, which carries with it potential

certain financial options exist for individuals and whether borrowing will be allowed at reasonable interest rates. A good place to start is to access a free credit report from any of the three major credit reporting bureaus. This can be done at www.annualcreditreport.com. This allows a person to see what has been reported by creditors and if any false information has been reported. False information or mistakes can seriously affect a person’s buying power, especially for a large item, such as a home or automobile and should be corrected immediately. While the reports are free, there is usually a fee to obtain the actual credit score. The moral of the story is: Before seeking help with financial problems, be sure to check out the provider. Are they HUD-approved for housing? Do they belong to a national organization which requires audits, accreditation and strict professional standards? What is their Better Business Bureau rating? Are they members of a community organizations, such as United Way? Doing a little homework upfront will save a lot of heartache and potential financial disaster later. To discuss accessing help for housing, credit card debt or credit problems, call me at 815-338-5757.

said, but the most successful part of the business has been on the wholesale side. Headed up mostly by Michael, who handles the sales side of the business, Ethereal Confections sells chocolates in 200 shops across the country, and it even sells in stores in Canada and Mexico. The trio not only own the shop, but they live together as well. Working and living together, at least for now, has only brought the group closer together. “One of our employees does call us codependent,” Sara said. “Last week Mary was working in the kitchen and I was out front and we’re like, ‘we mis each other!’”

downsides, or taking advantage of a selection of government assistance programs, one of which, the Hardest Hit Program, may involve a forgivable loan of up to $35,000 to bring the mortgage current or pay it forward. The latter is designed for homeowners whose delinquency was caused by loss of income. Whichever option the homeowner picks, he or she should know that an honest, well-trained, HUD-approved counselor is providing free advice and assistance. Mortgage assistance is not the only area where people are being damaged financially. Those with credit card and unsecured loan debt also are vulnerable to scam artists, who promise that they can effect settlements with creditors, which individuals can actually do for themselves. Here again, while settlement is a legitimate way to expunge debt, individuals need to know the downsides to this option. Settlements may result in lowering credit scores or even include large tax liabilities for the forgiven amounts. NFCC members offer debt management programs, (DMPs) in which clients make monthly payments for credit card and/or some loan debt with reduced interest and fees, which have been negotiated with creditors. DMPs last no more than 60 months and usually result in large interest savings. The more information a person has in hand when attacking financial problems, the better.

U.S. builders start work on fewer homes

Bernanke: Timetable for bond purchases not preset

The Associated Press By MARTIN CRUTSINGER AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON – Chairman Ben Bernanke said Wednesday that the Federal Reserve’s timetable for reducing its bond purchases is not on a “preset course” and the Fed could increase or decrease the amount based on how the economy performs. Bernanke told lawmakers that the job market has made some progress since the Fed began buying $85 billion a month in bonds in September, as part of his mid-year economic report to Congress. And he repeated his belief that the Fed could slow that pace later this year if the economy strengthens. But Bernanke cautioned that the Fed wants to see substantial progress in the job market before scaling back the bond purchases. If conditions worsen, the Fed could maintain its current pace or even increase it. The bond purchases are intended to keep long-term interest rates low and encourage more borrowing and spending. He also noted that a number of other factors could influence the Fed’s interest rate policies. U.S. economic growth could be restrained further by a weaker global economy or federal spending cuts and tax increases. Inflation could remain well below

the Fed’s 2 percent target. And the unemployment rate could drop because people are leaving the workforce — not because they are getting jobs. “Because our asset purchases depend on economic and financial developments, they are by no means on a preset course,” he told the House Financial Services Committee during the first of two days of testimony this week on the Fed’s semi-annual report. Stocks edge higher after Bernanke’s testimony. The Dow closed at 15,470.52 Wednesday, up 18.67. Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist for Capital Economics, said Bernanke’s remarks did not alter his view that the Fed would likely start reducing its bond purchases in September and end them completely by the middle of next year. But Dales said that would be contingent on how the economy’s health. “We don’t think this forward guidance could be much clearer,” Dales said. Bernanke’s remarks were his latest attempt to calm markets, which have gyrated wildly since the Fed’s June meeting. The Dow Jones industrial average plunged 560 points after Bernanke first indicated at the post-meeting news conference on June 19 that the Fed could slow the bond purchases later this year. Since

then, various Fed officials have tried to assure investors that any reduction would be based on stronger growth and improvement in the job market — not a target date. That helped restore investor confidence and the Dow and other market indicators have climbed to new highs. On Wednesday, Bernanke said investors are starting to digest the Fed’s guidance. He said it was important to provide a road map of the Fed’s possible moves so that investors don’t expect the bond purchases to continue indefinitely. “I think the markets are beginning to understand our message,” he said during the hearing. The job market has improved since the Fed’s bond buying began. Employers have created an average of 202,000 jobs a month this year, up from 180,000 in the previous six months. Still, unemployment remains elevated at 7.6 percent. And economic growth has been modest the past three quarters. In his testimony, Bernanke again said “a highly accommodative monetary policy will remain appropriate for the foreseeable future” because unemployment remains high and inflation is below the Fed’s target of 2 percent. Bernanke also repeated that the Fed plans to keep its

But Bernanke said the Fed could hold the rate lower even after it falls below 6.5 percent, particularly if unemployment falls because more people are leaving the workforce. The government counts people as unemployed only if they are actively looking for a job. Bernanke said the economy is growing at “moderate pace” despite the adverse effects of tax increases and federal spending cuts. He noted that the housing market is rebounding and the job market has gradually improved. “Despite these gains, the job situation is far from satisfactory,” he said. The economy grew at a subpar 1.8 percent annual rate in the January-March quarter. Many economists think growth in the April-June quarter weakened to an annual rate of 1 percent or less. That would make the third

straight quarter of a growth rate below 2 percent. Many expect growth will rebound in the second half of this year. The Fed forecasts that the economy will grow between 2.3 percent and 2.6 percent this year, which is more optimistic than many economists predict. The pickup in economic growth that Fed officials expect is based in part on an assumption that the adverse effects of the tax increases and government spending cuts will diminish over time. And it assumes that the overall risks to the economy are lower now than they were when the central bank began the latest bond-buying program. But he said threats remained. The federal budget policies could restrain growth for longer than expected. Or a congressional battle later this year over raising the government’s borrowing limit could once again rattle investor and consumer confidence.

Abbott Labs 2Q income falls after AbbVie spinoff The Associated Press NORTH CHICAGO – Abbott Laboratories Inc. said Wednesday that its net income fell in the second quarter following the spinoff of its branded drug business, but the results beat Wall Street expectations Abbott said sales of nutrition and

diagnostic products improved, making up for lower sales of generic drugs and medical devices. The company spun off its branded drug business into a separate company called AbbVie on Jan. 1. AbbVie sells products including the anti-inflammatory drug Humira. Abbott said its net income fell to

$476 million, or 30 cents per share, from $1.73 billion, or $1.08 per share, a year ago. Excluding one-time charges and last year’s AbbVie results, however, its earnings rose to 46 cents per share from 43 cents per share. Analysts surveyed by FactSet expected 44 cents per share. Revenue grew 3 percent to $5.45

Mattel 2Q profit falls, Barbie sales slide again The Associated Press

Bank of America’s earnings soar 70 pct. The Associated Press NEW YORK – Bank of America says its second-quarter profits soared, helped by higher earnings from investment banking and cost-cutting. The results, reported Wednesday, beat analysts’ expectations. The bank earned $3.6 billion in the quarter after payments to preferred shareholders. That was up 70 percent from $2.1 billion a year ago. Per share, that worked out to 32 cents. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected 25 cents per share. The bank’s stock rose 2.3 percent in Wednesday trading. Bank of America, the country’s second-biggest bank by assets, has been slimming down and cutting jobs since CEO Brian Moynihan took over at the beginning of 2010, a departure from the empirebuilding of his predecessors.

The strategy meant to make the bank easier to manage and to escape potential extra scrutiny from regulators. In the second quarter, the bank slashed expenses about 6 percent, to $16 billion from $17 billion a year ago. It also cut about 18,300 jobs over the year, or nearly 7 percent of its work force. The bank now has about 257,000 employees, down about 11 percent from its peak of nearly 289,000 in early 2011. In a call with reporters, Chief Financial Officer Bruce Thompson noted that some of the job cuts were in the unit that services troubled mortgages, which is shrinking as the bank works through those loans. He also said the bank had added jobs in the unit that makes new mortgages. The bank has also been closing branches. The number of branches fell to about 5,300, down by about 260 over the year.

NEW YORK – Vampy teen Monster High dolls are taking a bite out of squeakyclean Barbie. Mattel said Wednesday its second-quarter net income fell 24 percent, hurt by a continued slide in Barbie sales and a $14 million writedown on the toy maker’s Polly Pocket line. It was the fourth straight quarter of sales declines for Barbie, one of Mattel’s biggest and most iconic brands, and Mattel executives said their Monster High and other girls doll lines were likely taking away some sales from the 54-year-old fashion doll. Monster High dolls, which are based on teen characters that are offspring of famous monsters, have been a huge hit for Mattel since they were introduced in 2010. Monster High sales have likely grown to more than $500 million in just three years of existence, while Barbie annual sales are about $1.3 billion, estimates BMO Capital Markets analyst Gerrick Johnson. Other doll lines including American Girl and Disney Princesses have been performing well too. “We’ve introduced new franchises that have fueled significant category growth for the industry,” said CEO Bryan Stockton.

billion from $5.31 billion.

Diagnostics revenue rose 5 percent to $1.14 billion.

WASHINGTON – U.S. builders started work on fewer homes in June, mostly because apartment construction fell sharply. But applications for permits to build single-family houses rose to the highest level in five years, suggesting the housing recovery will continue. Developers began construction at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 836,000 homes in June, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. That was nearly 10 percent below May’s total of 928,000, which was revised higher, and was the fewest since August 2012. Most of the drop occurred in apartments, where starts fell almost 27 percent in June from May. Apartment construction is volatile from month-to-month. Applications for permits to build single-family homes rose for the third straight month to 624,000, the highest since May 2008. That suggests home construction should rebound in the coming months. Overall permits fell to 911,000 in June from 985,000 in May, which was also revised higher. Despite June’s decline, builders started work on 10 percent more homes last month compared with a year earlier. And permits are 16 percent higher than a year ago. “Today’s drop in starts is more a pause in an otherwise improving trend,” said Jonathan Basile, an economist at Credit Suisse. The uptick in permits for single-family home construction echoed a report Tuesday that showed confidence among homebuilders rose in June to its highest level since January 2006.

• BUILDERS Continued from page F1 “This is based on research from New Mexico and Tennessee where there have been new green home tours,” Weiss said. “Our green show is the first for this area. We definitely look to use the proceeds from this year’s tour for the budget we have planned for next year’s 2014 tour.” Weiss said the tour serves several purposes. It shows what a green house looks like, how it operates and why the costs should be no hindrance to potential new housing buyers. “A lot of people have a misconception of green home building costs. They think it costs a lot more money and it does not. There will be a little increase in costs but it is more than made up for in savings on the energy bill. In fact, those savings wipe out any increase in costs for originally building the house.” Besides the costs being recouped by lower utility and fuel bills, Weiss emphasized the health of a green house. “A green home is a healthy home. There are no toxic materials used and the indoor air quality is phenomenal.” A third reason for the show is to educate the public and other builders. “You will do yourself a favor by looking into green housing otherwise you could be building a house that will be outdated in a few years as far as building codes are concerned. You may be up to code now, but you will not be in the future. We want to educate the people in that respect. “We want to educate and show that green housing is not for just a certain type of person but for everybody. Who does not want to live in a healthy home?” The impetus for the tour came when Green attended a National Association of Home Builders green building conference. “They had a pre-conference tour checking out ‘green homes’ in the conference area. Builders and remodelers from around the country loaded up on a bus and toured these homes,” Weiss said. “It was great, but I thought, what if we did that in Chicago, geared for consumers and required the homes be third party certified?” It took time and effort to put the tour together. “Numerous volunteer hours from members of the Illinois Residential Green Building Council (subsidiary of United States Green Building Council) went into it. We worked to create partnerships, get builders and architects to enter their homes in the tour, promote the tour and obtain sponsorship. “Since it was the first year, we had no past experience at this. With a very small budget, a lot of elements had to fall into place to make it happen, such as a WEB site, logistics,

It was a grass roots effort.” Weiss and his green housing compatriots had to select houses for the tour. “As judges, we primarily used third-party green certifications as a baseline for entry. If a home had a valid third party green certification, that was what we were looking for. Also, being that only a small circle of builders in Chicagoland build this way, we were able to identify who should be a part of our tour committee.” Weiss entered a house he built for Rodrigo and Corinna Lema at 1430 Jackson in River Forest in the tour. “We started the Lema house in June 2012 and were done in December. The owners moved into it in January,” Weiss said. “We built the first passive (energy-efficient, reduced ecological footprint, solar-oriented) airtight green house in the Chicago and suburban area. There are a few others in Illinois and they are in Urbana, but this is the first one up here.” Each of the other houses featured in the tour have been recognized by a third party (government and private supporters of green housing) for sustainable, practical and affordable building practices. The Lema house received the Green Innovation Emerald Award by the USGBC earlier this year. There were 75 entries for the award, but Weiss was the winner. He is no stranger to awards. Weiss was named the 2012 Northern Illinois Builder of The Year, the 2011 Northern Illinois Remodeler of The Year and the 2011 Best In American Living Award winner. His Lema house has received certification from the Passive House Institute US, which is based in Urbana. “Passive house is the world’s most stringent energy-efficiency certification in the world,” Weiss said. “It is either pass or fail with no ‘in-betweens’ or honorable mentions. You either build one or you do not.” An approved architect must be onboard. In the case of Weiss, it was

Tom Bassett Dilley Architects of Oak Park. Inspections by PHIUS are part of the protocol. In tandem, Weiss and Dilley will be in the Lema house the two days of this weekend’s tour. During construction of the Lema house, Weiss was inspected often (unannounced) to ensure he was following the institute’s guidelines. All materials must be free of toxins, for example, and that includes carpeting, flooring, glues, sealants, caulks, plywood, insulation, furniture, countertops, roofs, cements, appliances and structural elements. “Virtually everything,” Weiss said. “Some you can buy at a box store, but others come from the manufacturer and you can get them by ordering on line (WEB sites). These nontoxic materials do not necessarily cost more, but you cannot get all of them from one source like a traditional builder does. You get them from different sources. I know where these are as I have been doing this for seven years now. I started my company in 2005. “Many building materials contain toxic chemicals (formaldehyde is a big offender) that can off-gas volatile organic compounds. Unfortunately, most people do not know that there are potentially hazardous materials in most drywall, hardwood flooring, carpets, plywood glues, caulks, cabinets, insulation, countertops and furniture. Fortunately, we can make better selections by choosing products that are third-party certified for indoor air quality.” Weiss said a passive house not only is healthier, but lasts longer and is more economical than a normal house. “One of the neat things about a passive house is that it is really healthy. It is air tight and movement of air in and out of house is controlled. Our system takes air, for instance, out of laundry rooms, kitchen and bathroom and brings in fresh air while creating heat in winter and cooling in the summer. A passive house system does this 7/24, 365 days a year. A code-built house does not do

Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com this. A house built to code still brings in bugs, insects, dirt, and polluted air. Ours is constantly moving with the air exchanged every three hours. Since it is self-cleaning, there is no dust collecting in air conditioning or heating ducts. It is a constant stream of fresh air. People who live in these homes, and there are thousands of them in Europe, are more refreshed and have more energy. That is due to clean and fresh air. In Germany, they not only do passive houses but also schools, office and commercial buildings,” Weiss said. “And because of the way it is constructed, you cannot have a passive house unless it is well built. There are so many requirements. A prerequisite for such a house is extremely good craftsmanship. “Since these houses are airtight, there is no moisture coming through walls and no condensation to cause rot, mildwew and decay. You have none of this in a passive house, which should have a lifespan of hundreds of years instead of 40, 50 or 60. And a passive house always will be in good shape.” Economically, heating and cooling costs will be a fraction of that in a normal house, Weiss added. Passive house certification was founded in 1988 by Dr. Wolfgang Feist and the first ‘passiv haus’ was built in Darmstadt, Germany in 1990. Since then more than 30,000 certified projects have been completed in Europe and building codes in Germany are starting to adopt this type of construction as part of the code requirement. “The U.S. is gaining traction slowly with 27 homes completed prior to my 28th,” Weiss said. “ Germany is starting to adopt this type of construction as part of the code requirement.” Growth of the passive house concept is slow but inevitable. “Oh yeah, for sure,” Weiss said. “It is an exponential growth. In the U.S., the first one was in Urbana, one house that first year in 2005. Then there were three, then four, then eight and slowly, moving across the country, there were 28 by 2012. For 2013, there are more than 100 on the books, either already certified or under construction. It is small but getting more popular. By 2030, I believe a passive house will be the code in the housing construction industry. “Some people ask, ‘Why doesn’t everybody build this way?’ It is because people do not know about it. They do not know the quality, economy and health they can get in this type of housing that costs little more than a traditional house.” Weiss said a passive house might cost 4 percent more than an ordinary structure built to a municipalities code requirements. “You spend a little more on the insulation, but save on the mechanical (heating and air conditioning costs) end,” he said.

Expect to pay at least $140 per square foot of living space. The twostory, five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath house with a finished basement Lema house on a 9,000-square-foot lot had almost 4,000 square feet of living space. “That includes the basement but not the stairway or closets,” Weiss said. “When the stairway and closets are taken out of the equation, square footage is closer to 3,600.” While he continues to work on other new housing projects in 2013, including three and possibly four passive houses, Weiss is drawing plans for his own. “The passive house for myself, wife and child will start this year. It depends on my work schedule. The business of building for others comes first, but I should have our family passive house done by the end of spring 2014.” Two of the three green houses on the calendar this year are at Hampshire and Elgin. He has begun construction on the third passive house in a rural area two miles north of McHenry County’s Burton Township.

I will build a home from $250,000 to $5 million, one that is 1,200 square feet in size or 8,000 square feet. I do not care about price or size, but what I do care about is quality and energyefficiency. I am passionate about that,” he said. “The only limitations are creativity and budget. His designations include Graduate Master Builder, LEED AP, BPI Certified Building Analyst & Envelope Professional, and Weiss is one of 24 builders nationwide to receive the Master Certified Green Professional Credential. He is also the first person in Illinois to reach the Master CGP level, which is the National Association of Home Builder’s highest certification for green builders. The designation requires at least five years of green building experience, as well as additional training focusing heavily on building science, green project management, and scheduling. It also requires that the builder has completed at least three certified green projects. The certified projects must be recognized by national green building programs such as LEED for Homes or NAHB Green Building Standard. It does not recognize local green building certifications or energy only programs such as Energy Star. For information visit www. sustain-a-building.com

CROSSWORD

HOROSCOPE

▲ ▲

TODAY - Acts of kindness, compassion and generosity could produce extra benefits for you in the year ahead. This could be especially true in situations where you do things for others without seeking any benefits for yourself. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- When doing work that requires an eye for detail, you had better keep your mind on the task at hand. A lack of attention could quickly ruin your endeavor. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Be content with what you’re doing and with whom you are sharing your time. Once you start wishing you were elsewhere, you’ll lose what the moment has to offer. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It’s marvelous when we can take others at their word, but unfortunately several persons might promise you things today that they have no intention of fulfilling. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Usually, you’re pretty good at clarifying your objectives, especially if it involves something that could enhance your know-how. Today, however, your system might go awry. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you plan to visit some shops that offer tantalizing merchandise that you know you can’t afford, it would be best to leave your credit cards at home. Now’s not the time to be a spendthrift. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Any project or endeavor that doesn’t have your wholehearted support shouldn’t be pursued today. It would be best to temporarily shelve such matters until you’re in a more favorable mood. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If a friend does something worthy of praise, be sure to compliment him or her. However, don’t use false flattery or be insincere just to give this person an ego boost. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You’re a generous and giving person, and these are admirable traits. However, don’t allow an unworthy manipulator to use flattery on you and abuse your good nature. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If your objectives aren’t clearly and realistically defined, you could go off on an unproductive tangent and end up having little or nothing to show for your effort. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t expect to be too convincing if you try to sell others on some ideas or concepts that you don’t truly believe in. It takes sincerity to generate support. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If you ask someone for an opinion on an important matter, make sure it is a person who will tell you the truth. That’s the only way you’ll get the advice you need. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Companions will get miffed at you if they fail to understand why you say one thing and do another. It is important for you to clearly define your motives and actions.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

Today is a particular milestone for me. I have been writing this column for just over 22 years and this is my 7,000th. Please permit me to show you one of my favorite deals. It occurred in 1968 while I was in high school, playing in a duplicate at the Newport Bridge Club in Monmouthshire, England (now Gwent, Wales). I was partnering with one of our school bridge team, Tony Disley. I opened one no-trump, showing 12-14 points. (Yes, this was a slight underbid; it would have been reasonable to call this a 15-point hand.) Since we were not using transfer bids, Disley employed Stayman, then optimistically raised two spades to four spades. (Of course, if he had invited with three spades, I would have gone on to game.) West led the club queen. How did I plan the play? With three top losers, at irst glance, I needed the heart inesse to win. But then I saw a much better line. I won the irst trick on the board and called for the diamond jack. East rushed in

with the ace and returned a club (not that it mattered). I won on the board, played a diamond to my king, and led the spade queen. Now West erred by playing her king. East groaned while winning with her ace and led another club, but I ruffed, drew the missing trump, and claimed an overtrick. Dummy’s heart loser went on my diamond queen. Afterward, I looked at the other results. At every table, North made two spades with only one overtrick. Perhaps all of the Easts led a heart at trick one, but I doubt it.

he meaning behind the name of the folk duo Red Tail Ring says a lot about the music they strive to make. “Red tail” stands for two great creatures, the red tail hawk and the red fox, said Laurel Premo, who began collaborating with Michael Beauchamp a couple of years ago to form the Michiganbased duo. “They’re both powerful and beautiful,” she said. And the “ring” represents a collaboration between the two creatures, everyone working as a team, she said. “It’s kind of an open-ended idea. It’s a reverence for nature,” she said. With their blend of traditional Appalachian tunes and original songs on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, jaw harp and “plain-old foot stomping,” Red Tail Ring is one of seven featured artists scheduled to perform as part of the Woodstock Folk Festival. The event takes place from 12:30 to 6 p.m. June 21 at the Woodstock Square, as well as Stage Left Cafe, 125 W. Van Buren St., Woodstock. Artists will perform on a Main Stage in the Square, while others will take the Open Mic Stage at Stage Left Cafe. Open mic sign-ups begin at 12:35 p.m. the day of the festival and continue until 5:30 p.m. At 2 p.m., an up-and-coming folk rock group, Rune, will perform as the Open Mic Stage’s featured artist. “They’re quite lively,” event treasurer Ray Beth said of Rune. Meanwhile, the Main Stage will feature a variety of some of the best folk artists in the country and elsewhere, ranging from new to seasoned acts, organizers say. Red Tail Ring released its third fulllength album, “The Heart’s Swift Foot,” in May 2013 with 10 original songs and two acoustic standards that pay homage to late bluegrass singers Hazel Dickens and Doc Watson. “We really present a wide range of moods from really haunting slow pieces to square dance-type tunes, upbeat fiddle numbers,” Premo said. The duo met as solo artists perform-

ing throughout the Michigan area. “We just kind of kept bumping into each other at the same festivals,” Premo said. “We were able to sit down together and make a tune together.” From there, the duo released its first pair of recordings, “Middlewest Chant” and “Mountain Shout,” in April of 2011. “Midwest Chant” features original songs, while “Mountain Shout” includes the duo’s interpretations of Appalachian ballads and melodies. On stage, Beauchamp plays the guitar and mandolin, while Premo plays the

fiddle. The two trade off on the banjo. While she plays her music full time, Premo also works as a visual artist. She does graphic design and hand screenpainting, and created the artwork for the duo’s albums. The festival also will feature a presentation of its 12th annual Lifetime Achievement Award to Tricia Alexander, a performing and healing artist who has hosted concerts, workshops and art projects for more than 30 years in America and Britain. Other performers include Brother Sun, Donna Herula, Emily Elbert, Judith Avers and Sultans of String. Sultans of String was nominated for World Group of the Year at the 2013 Canadian Indie Awards. They won World Group of the Year at the 2012 Canadian Folk Music Awards. In an effort to attract more youth to the festival, organizers brought in some younger acts, such as Rune and Elbert, a 24-year-old American singer-songwriter and guitarist. “She’s a hot up and coming folk singer from Texas,” Beth said.

‘RED 2’ plot makes little sense “Red 2”

HH

STARRING: Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-

By JEFFREY WESTHOFF The novelty of a certain movie can wear off the moment its sequel begins, which is what happens with “RED 2.” The hook to the original “RED,” a surprise hit in the fall of 2010, was that this was an action movie with a cast of pensioners led MORE by the relatively youthONLINE ful Bruce Willis, 58. Watch the The sight of Helen trailer to Mirren wearing an eve“Red 2” at Planing dress and combat nitNorthwest. boots may be funny com once. Try to build a second movie around such gags, though, and it quickly becomes apparent they weren’t exactly riotous in the first place. But “RED” (which stands for Retired, Extremely Dangerous) showed a profit, so that means there must be a sequel, especially if Willis is involved. He showed up for “The Whole Ten Yards,” for crying out loud.

Louise Parker, Helen Mirren PLOT: Retired spies Willis and Malkovich are on the run again when they are implicated in a Cold War-era plot to detonate a nuclear bomb in Moscow. One of Willis’ old lames, a Russian agent played by Catherine Zeta-Jones, appears, driving his girlfriend (Parker) crazy with jealousy. RATED: PG-13 for pervasive action and violence including frenetic gunplay, and for some language and drug material RUNNING TIME: 1 hour, 56 minutes Willis’ character, retired CIA black ops expert Frank Moses, is still committed to enjoying the fruits of a normal life. At the homeowners’ paradise known as Costco, he tries to convince his girlfriend, Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker), they really need a power washer. Then his old colleague Marvin Boggs (John Malkovich) appears in the next aisle to warn Frank they are in trouble again. Frank ignores him and tells Marvin to drive away. Marvin’s SUV promptly explodes. Malkovich is positioned too prominently on the movie poster for Marvin to be killed off in the first five minutes, so he turns up again shortly, and Frank is reluctantly pulled back into action. To his chagrin, Sarah is thrilled to be part of the team.

Someone posted a WikiLeaks memo “on the Internet” (screenwriters have to stop treating the Internet as if it were a recent innovation) linking Frank and Marvin to a Cold War operation called Nightshade. Neither of them has heard of Nightshade, but suddenly every major government wants them dead. A never-specified American agency hires the best contract killer in the world, Han Choi Bai (Byung-hun Lee, Storm Shadow in the “G.I. Joe” movies). We know Han is the best contract killer in the world because Marvin says so twice within five minutes. Meanwhile, Britain’s MI6 hires another of Frank’s old friends, Victoria (Mirren), who politely phones him with a warning. The first movie had Frank and Sarah racing all over America. The sequel opens up the scope by sending them on a tour of the capitals of Europe – Paris and London – so at least the scenery is pretty, especially during the Paris segment. Things get complicated in Paris with the appearance of Katja (Catherine Zeta-Jones), a Russian agent and one of Frank’s old flames. Katja’s arrival fills Sarah with jealousy, particularly when Marvin calls her “Frank Moses’ kryptonite.” Screenwriters Jon and Erich Hoebert use Marvin as their mouthpiece to make sure the audience doesn’t miss even the most obvious plot point.

• RED Continued from page 15 Eventually, the players learn Nightshade was an American operation to smuggle a portable nuclear weapon into Moscow “at the height of the Cold War” (more on that later). To locate the bomb, they must smuggle the weapon’s inventor, physicist Edward Bailey (Anthony Hopkins), out of the asylum where MI6 has been holding him for 32 years. The walls of Bailey’s cell are covered with scribbled mathematical equations and formulas, because that’s what crazy scientists do in the movies. The plot is even more convoluted than it sounds with all sorts of goofy plot twists. Bad guys become good guys and good guys become bad guys so frequently several characters probably lose track of their allegiances. The script has a hazy, and bizarre, memory of recent history. “The height of the Cold War” turns out to be 1989, the year the Berlin Wall fell. That means the U.S. went ahead with Operation Nightshade when it was clear the Eastern Bloc was coming apart, making our government more sinister than the Soviet Union. “RED 2” is too steeped in gun fetishism to be a sneaky leftwing critique of U.S. foreign policy during the late 20th century. It just hopes no one does the math. But here’s a bit more math: Zeta-Jones was born in 1969, which means she would have been in her early 20s when the Cold War ended. Either Katja was a femme fatale prodigy, or Zeta-Jones doesn’t mind audiences thinking she’s as old as her co-stars. If so, more power to her. The script is loaded with inconsistencies. At the beginning, a handcuffed Frank is trapped in a small room with three armed men, two of them mercenaries carrying submachine guns, and he escapes. But near the end, merely because the plot requires it, Frank surrenders to an elderly man with a small pistol. Even with these faults, “RED 2” is charmingly smallscaled compared with recent action films. Cars and the

“Turbo”

HH 1/2

STARRING: (voices of) Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Samuel L. Jackson PLOT: A freak accident might just help an everyday garden snail achieve his biggest dream: winning the Indy 500. RATED: PG for some mild action and thematic elements TIME: 1 hour, 35 minutes VERDICT: In delivering a film about a garden snail that dreams of winning the Indy 500, it’s as if the makers of “Turbo” had been pressed to come up with the most extreme underdog tale they could think of. Or else animators really are running out of ideas for original new characters. An attractively designed but narratively challenged, one-note film, “Turbo” skews younger than the norm for big animated features these days and has limited appeal

occasional plane blow up, but not office buildings. And the movie has a running time of less than two hours, which is something of a miracle in the current marketplace. The original film had those things going for it, too. “RED” also had director Robert Schwentke, who balanced the humor and the action with some skill. Schwentke left to direct “R.I.P.D.,” which also opens this weekend, leaving “RED 2” with Dean Parisot, who hasn’t directed a feature

for little girls. Of course, the message of the film, as with so many other kid-inspirational cartoons and other fantasies, is that no dream is too big, you can do anything if you set your mind to it, etc., etc. Unfortunately, the real embedded lesson of Turbo is that, if you’re too small or weak or otherwise incapable of greatness, you have a shot to win if you’re juiced. Which is what happens late one night when Turbo, coming upon a “Fast & Furious”style drag race in the dry LA River bed, gets sucked into an engine. Instead of being toasted, however, the little guy becomes infused with nitrous oxide, enabling him to zoom along the ground seemingly as fast as Superman shoots through the skies. Ahhh, the wonders of chemicals and strength enhancers. Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire would approve. The ultimate destination – Indianapolis – is inevitable, but it takes a long time to get there, given a script that is short on invention and long on largely unfunny yacking. Once the gang

film since 2005’s awful “Fun With Dick and Jane.” Parisot’s heavy hand with comedy makes the many attempts at black humor appalling, starting with the scene where Mirren casually pours acid into a bathtub to aid the decomposition of her latest victim. Mutilating corpses – funny stuff, there. Frank and his friends are professional killers, that’s supposed to be part of the joke, and I don’t expect “RED 2” to show them as paragons

arrives and begins overcoming the obstacles that might prevent a snail from entering a car race (conveniently unmentioned is the most obvious one, that Turbo lacks four wheels and an engine), the hitherto genial Guy Gagne suddenly becomes a villain, feeling so threatened by the now-mighty mollusk that he goes to all lengths to prevent an eternally humiliating defeat. In the run-up to the race and then during it, you mostly wonder about how a critter so small it can’t be seen on the track (although its blue/white-hot streak can be) will avoid being crunched by the giant tires of the humans’ racing machines; indeed, the film’s most irreverent merit is that it is periodically honest about the fate of snails by casually showing them getting squashed by humans or gobbled up by animals, especially crows. In the event, Turbo just zips through traffic as if in an obstacle course, the obvious longshot pipsqueak favorite in a field of giants. – Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter

of virtue. But I do expect the heroes of an American action movie to display a modicum of morality. Toward the end, the good guys gun down about a dozen people who have done nothing wrong, unless you consider being Iranian wrong. I’m afraid to learn the percentage of viewers who would say yes.

GAVERS BARNDANCE Hans & the Hormones (closing act)

Hormones,

Dot Dot Dot and

Monroe on stage at By JAMI KUNZER jkunzer@shawmedia.com

H

ear the name Gavers in this area and you’re likely to think Barndance. And by the looks of the Gavers Community Barndance ticket sales, you’re likely to go. “We are knocking on the door right now of being sold out,” said Steven Gavers, who founded the dance along with the Gavers Community Cancer Foundation after beating testicular cancer. “It’s our largest this year.” The 14th annual fundraiser, which actually is under a tent and takes place at 5 p.m. July 20 at Emricson Park in Woodstock, is expected to draw about 2,500 people this year. With a barbecue dinner, live auction and music, including country singer Rick Monroe, the rock band Dot Dot Dot and ’80s guitar pop cover band Hans and the Hormones, the event provides plenty of entertainment.

See BARNDANCE, page 19

Dot Dot Dot 9 p.m.

Barndance

WHEN: 5 p.m. to midnight July 20 WHERE: Emricson Park, Woodstock INFO: BBQ dinner served 5:30 to 7 p.m. Rick Monroe (www.rickmonroe.com) entertains; “Never be Defeated” award winners presented and live auction 7 to 8:30 p.m.; Dot Dot Dot (dotdotdotonline. com) plays at 9 p.m.; Hans and the Hormones closes the event. Must be 21 or older to attend. TICKETS: $50 at www.gavers.org.


• BARNDANCE Continued from page 18 Hans and the Hormones are regulars at the dance, with a couple of the band’s members serving on the foundation’s board. They actually helped come up with the idea for the fundraiser one night years ago while chatting with Gavers. Though a celebration, what stands out for Gavers every year is the underlying reason for the event, along with the people it honors. Through his foundation, he works to raise awareness of the need for cancer screenings as well as money for research. Every year, he selects “Never be Defeated” award winners to honor at the Barndance. Three will be given this year, with the winners announced at the dance. They go to those who’ve gone through or are dealing with traumatic situations, with the key word being “selflessness,” Gavers said. “That is the only word I can come up with. They’re dealing with very emotional, physical and mental ordeals,” he said. “They’re really not dwelling on what they’re going through. They’re like, ‘What can I do for someone else?’ “That is probably the biggest thing I do at the event. It’s my little satisfaction. I get to bring joy to someone else.” The Barndance has raised more than $4.5 million since its beginning, with about 2,400 attending last year. Completely volunteer, the foundation donates its profits to facilities that help cancer patients, including Centegra Health System, Rush University Medical Center, the Family Health Partnership Clinic and the Wellness Place. The event recently was honored as one of the best community celebrations in the country as part of a “Best of US” campaign hosted by Johnsonville Sausage. The campaign narrowed 275 nominations to a Top 10 that were voted on through www.johnsonville.com. The Barndance ranked at number five and earned $1,000 toward its cause. Gavers credits the success of the fundraiser to its many volunteers, including 30 new supporters who offered to help out this year. The cause means so much to those involved, he said. “I would say everyone on the planet is touched by it [cancer] now, either a friend or relative or someone you know,” he said. “The web is so thick that it’s one of those things that I think we need to do.” With five class reunions scheduled to take place at the Barndance, it’s also become a place where the community comes together. “The thing that sets us apart is we’re having a fundraiser, but we’re also having a lot of fun,” he said.

Music of a different name Local dueling piano business makes memories By TARAH THORNE tthorne@shawmedia.com

M

ike Potts is searching – for the perfect name. “We need stage names,” said Potts, co-creator of Felix and Fingers Dueling Pianos and Jazz Duo. Felix and Fingers began as a jazz duo in November 2010 when Potts and Dave Radford, who both graduated from Crystal Lakebased high schools, found themselves showcasing their musical talents at The Baker House in Lake Geneva once a week. But that was not enough. “Jazz will always be where our heart is,” Potts said. “But we’ve become much more than that.” Felix and Fingers is now a high-energy, interactive, all-request based show, designed to get audiences singing, dancing and having a good time. The company – which doesn’t have a brick-and-mortar location – specializes in weddings, corporate events and fundraisers. Mike Potts recently moved to the Barrington area from Crystal Lake with his fiancée, and has since booked events within the community. Felix and Fingers has made an appearance at L’Eiffel Bistrot & Creperie in the Arboretum of South Barrington, performed on a flatbed truck in Barrington’s Fourth of July parade and entertained wine enthusiasts at Uncork Barrington. “If we aren’t booked on a Friday and Saturday, we’re doing something wrong,” Potts said. The company has grown to include six to eight pianists on any given weekend. This has allowed Felix and Fingers to acquire a national presence, sending employees as far as Minnesota or Tennessee for performances.

ABOVE: Dave Radford (left) and Mike Potts (right) have always been interested in music. Radford appeared on the fifth season of American Idol, making the selection of top 10 male finalists. Potts spent time working as a musician on various cruise lines, where he visited more than 45 countries and met artists of many backgrounds. LEFT: Potts (left) and Radford started Felix and Fingers in 2011. The dueling pianists specialize in weddings, corporate events and fundraisers. Photos provided

Sometimes the Felix and Fingers piano duo will play with a musical guest whom they name “Freddy.” This guest typically sings or plays drums. Potts, the original “Fingers,” often brings his saxophone along for shows and Radford, the original “Felix,” has been known to bring his guitar. Both Potts and Radford come from musical

backgrounds. Potts began playing the piano at age 4. He toured 45 countries and worked alongside international artists during his few years spent as a cruise ship performer. “Every night was a different show,” Potts said. “I learned from the visiting artists. They all had very different performance approaches. Some would do

improv and others would tell the same joke repeatedly. It was nice to get a backstage perspective.” Radford was one of the youngest contestants on Season Five of “American Idol.” At just 17, he was a Top 10 male finalist on the show. “I learned to adapt and go with the flow in highpressure situations,”

Radford said. “I can look back and think about what I would have done differently.” Now, both musicians run Felix and Fingers full time while Potts teaches piano lessons online through Skype and Radford keeps up with his band, The Gray Havens. A typical Felix and Fingers dueling piano gig lasts three hours, yet keeping up with the paperwork is the most time-consuming aspect of the company. “Booking the shows is a full-time job, easily,” Potts said. Radford added that “weekends are jarring,” as many shows require one to three hours of travel time. Interestingly, the duo has found that their favorite part of performing is not necessary their music. Felix and Fingers is a cover band. “We found ourselves listening to music we don’t want to all the time,” said Potts. “Taylor Swift ... Justin Bieber ... right now it’s all about ‘Suit and Tie’ or ‘Mirrors’ [by Justin Timberlake].” And sometimes they take on a wedding-disaster-prevention role. “We like to make all of the events a success, even in non-musical ways,” Radford said. “We will lend lastminute help with extension cords or sound equipment. If the food is late, we play until it arrives and keep people happy.” At the end of the day, Potts and Radford measure their success by their audience’s mood. “We try to find everyone’s niche genre of music,” Radford said. “Each song is a test to see what that specific group really likes.” Potts said he enjoys connecting with people. “Weddings are something people will remember for their rest of their lives,” he said, “and we were there.”

ROB CARROLL WITH MUSIC’S NEW RELEASES

Against Me!

“True Trans” HH 1/2

FEATURED RELEASE Jay-Z

“Magna Carta ... Holy Grail” HH

Jay-Z leaves the house with a hundred grand, rolls around town in a Maybach (or maybe a yellow Lambo) and admires Picasso on “Magna Carta ... Holy Grail.” The album, which was released in conjunction with an advertising campaign with a cell phone company, is as commercialized as any Jay-Z album to date. When he released “Watch The Throne” with Kanye West in 2011, the boasting about nice cars and high art came off as just being part of the act. The designer tag reciting is so much more intrusive on “Magna Carta ... Holy Grail.” And the biggest name being peddled is the Jay-Z brand. On “Crown,” Jay-Z lays out the story of his ever-growing empire, including his latest venture as a sports agent. “Scott Boras you over baby. Robinson Cano you coming with me,” he raps in reference to luring the Yankees secondbaseman from his high-power agent. Sports references in rap music are nothing new. But rapping about repping athletes fails to be relatable for most listening to this album. Other times, Jay-Z reverts to his tried-and-true lyrical source material: his past life as a drug dealer. “Democrat, nope, I sold dope,” he spouts off on “Oceans.” Unfortunately, he’s more likely to make more of a connection with listeners when talking about pushing illegal substances instead of pushing free agents. “Oceans” is one of several songs on “Magna Carta ... Holy Grail” on which Jay-Z takes a back seat to other familiar voices. Frank Ocean was enlisted to carry the track. It’s tough to go wrong when adding his voice to a song. The same can be said for Justin Timberlake, who helps kick off the album with “Holy Grail.” Timberlake carries the song for more than a minute before Jay-Z swings in with his verse. Thanks to Timberlake, the song, with the exception of the reciting of lyrics from Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” is among the best tracks on this album. “Magna Carta ... Holy Grail” also is saved by Timbaland producing several of its tracks. He and Jay-Z have sparingly worked together in the past, but never on this level. The album is better off for it. What’s mostly good about “Magna Carta ... Holy Grail” are parts contributed by others. But with a brand to push, it’s Jay-Z who will probably get most of the credit. OUT THIS WEEK Philip Anselmo & The Illegals, “Walk Through Exits Only”; Sara Bareilles, “The Blessed Unrest”; Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, “White Teeth, Black Thoughts”; Court Yard Hounds, “Amelita”; George Duke, “DreamWeaver”; Ezra Furman, “The Year of No Returning”; Evan Gibb, “Out of Here”; Kara Grainger, “Shiver & Sigh”; Clive Gregson, “This Is Now”; Mayer Hawthorne, “Where Does This Door Go”; The Icarus Line, “Slave

When we last left Against Me!, there were four members in the band and the lead singer was living life as a male. Two members since have quit the band and Tom Gabel is now known as Laura Jane Grace. Regardless of the lineup changes, the remaining members are continuing to record under the Against Me! name. “True Trans” is the first hint of new music from the band. This two-song EP offers a look at Gabel’s transformation into Laura Jane Grace. “True Trans Soul Rebel” is the story of Grace’s struggles for acceptance as a woman. “You should have been a mother. You should have been a wife.” she laments on the song. “F--kmylife666” gets even deeper as Grace delves into personal relationships with those close to her. Both songs are presented acoustically, so they really don’t have the bite of typical Against Me! material. The storytelling makes these songs worth a listen. The band has gotten a little more melodic in recent years, while slightly stepping outside of its usual punk sound. The songs on “True Trans” continue that trend. If this EP is an indication of what to expect when, and if, the band releases a full-length album, then expect it to be its most personal to date.
