Residence hall revival

High heat will last 1 more day Experts: Watch for heat stress By DAVID THOMAS dthomas@shawmedia.com

NIU’s renewed Gilbert Hall readies for debut By DAVID THOMAS dthomas@shawmedia.com

eKALB – After opening a brand new dormitory complex to new students last year, Northern Illinois University will take another step forward with its dormitory overhaul with the August re-opening of Gilbert Hall. While the new residence hall – a place students and faculty refer to simply as “New Hall” – is marketed to new students, Gilbert Hall is tailored to NIU upperclassmen. “We didn’t have a space specifically designed for upperclass students,” said Michael Stang, executive director of NIU’s Housing and Dining. “This adds another option.” Gilbert Hall, which is on the east side of campus near the corner of Lucinda Avenue and Gilbert Drive, will have 280 beds in 142 rooms on three floors (excluding the first floor). The residents’ floors will have their own quiet lounge and open lounge. In

addition, the first floor will feature a recreation facility and Starbucks. “It’s really a state-of-the-art facility,” Stang said. Opened in 1952 as a men-only residence hall, Gilbert Hall was closed in 1995 as a residence hall. In the 18 years since, it has housed a number of offices, including the Office of Support and Advocacy and the Office of Publications. Stang noted that Gilbert Hall is close to a number of academic buildings that are destinations for students studying business, engineering and the performing arts. “We’re trying to offer options for all of our students, and that was one of the areas we knew we needed to shore up,” Stang said. Stang said Gilbert Hall is designed to have a more mature feel, which is something senior drawing major Sara Boehm would have appreciated when she first came to the university.

DeKALB – The week’s blistering heat is expected to continue today, as experts expect temperatures to hit the mid90s and the heat index to push into the triple digits. But an incoming cold front is expected to bring thunderstorms and lower temperatures this weekend and early next week, said Bill Nelson, an observational program leader at the National Weather Service in Chicago. “We should have more seasonable temperatures during the weekend and for the first part of next week,” he said, adding that seasonal temperatures are in the 80s. Despite the heat wave, northern Illinois is on track for having an average number of days higher than 90 degrees, Nelson said. Since Thursday, Rockford has experienced 10 days this year when temperatures rose above 90 degrees. DeKalb Assistant Fire Chief Jeff McMaster said paramedics haven’t responded to any heat-related emergencies recently. But he encouraged residents to remain vigilant for signs of heat stress, especially among children. “Kids don’t think about heat exhaustion,” McMaster said. “They’ll keep playing until they drop.” People affected by heat stress will be perspiring heavily, have bright red skin, be fatigued and experience general weakness. People with those symptoms should be moved to a cooler place, have their clothing loosened, and be sprayed with water or have cool, wet cloths applied. Heat exhaustion starts when people stop perspiring, turn pale, and have an altered level of consciousness, McMaster said. Call 911 if a person has those symptoms. Scott deOliveira, the director of DeKalb’s Hopkins Pool, said the park district has seen large crowds during the week. “Crowds extend well into the evening hours,” he said, “when we have heat like this.”

Today’s forecast Today will continue the hot and humid trend with a high of 95 and the heat index in the lower 100s. A cold front in the afternoon will bring rain and thunderstorms. See more weather details on PAGE A8.

Obama extols health care law amid public doubts By NEDRA PICKLER The Associated Press

President Barack Obama speaks Thursday about health care reform at the White House.

WASHINGTON – Facing public doubts and embarrassing setbacks to his signature health care law, President Barack Obama stepped forward Thursday to extol the program’s benefits, emphasizing that some Americans already are receiving insurance rebates and lower premiums. Obama said the program is working the way it was supposed

Americans skeptical about reform law Gallup found 52 percent of Americans disapproved of the Affordable Care Act when asked about it in June. Forty-four percent approved. Gallup found 42 percent saying the law would affect their families’ situations in a negative way, 22 percent positive and 33 percent saying it won’t make a difference.

to with “better benefits, stronger protections, more bang for your buck.” The assertion was ridiculed by Republicans, with House Speaker John Boehner calling the Affordable Care Act

“a train wreck” that he will keep working to repeal. Obama dismissed the GOP’s so-far-futile votes – the House logged its 38th attempt to repeal or scale back the law Wednesday

– with an exasperated sigh and shake of his head during a White House speech. “What I’ve heard is just the same old song and dance,” Obama said of his critics. “We’re just going to blow through that stuff and just keep on doing the right thing for the American people.” While the fate of the health care law will play a major role in defining his legacy, Obama has

Don’t choke on the whole enchilada Cedar Rapids, Iowa: my first job in the Midwest. During the interview, we had lunch at Lone Star Steakhouse, chosen so I would feel at home because I was then living in Austin, Texas. I saw “Amarillo Cheese Fries” on the menu. I didn’t know what they were, which is noteworthy because I was born 60 miles from Amarillo, lived there as a young adult, and still have family and friends there. Texans know Texas is larger than life. That knowledge comes from being born there (the only way, some say, one can be a real Texan). What I never realized was the degree to which non-Texas entities would want to market Texana. So I was amused to read last week that Texas Roadhouse is going to open in the former Johnny’s Charhouse location. That’s no small … armadillo. The steakhouse chain – headquartered in Kentucky – has more than 400 locations in 48 states, with 12 Illinois locations. I wish Texas Roadhouse success. As a carnivore, I’m sure I’ll dine there occasionally (can’t wait to try the “Road Kill”), but I wonder if we really need another meat-centric eatery. Anyway, as a public service, I thought it might be helpful to mention some stuff about Texas and Texans. There won’t be a test later.

THE FINE LINE Jason Akst Lone Star beer is swill. Shiner Bock, on the other hand, is nectar of the gods. Brewed just outside Austin, it’s only been available in the Midwest for a few years. Drink it cold with a slice of lemon. Rattlesnake doesn’t taste like chicken. It tastes like rattlesnake. It’s “y’all,” not “ya’ll.” This is a family newspaper, but if you follow me on Twitter (@jasonakst), I’ll explain the difference between a fairy tale and a Texas tale. The stereotype about Texans and guns is not a stereotype. Growing up, we were chided because we *only* had 5 or 6 guns around our house. When my brother’s high school class performed “Annie Get Your Gun,” as a chorus member, he wore a western-style pistol and holster. It was real (but not loaded). Nobody cared. Also … I had a roommate in college who sometimes carried a loaded .45 automatic. That’s a serious weapon. I asked him why he carried it. “In case I meet somebody who needs killin!’ ” he said. Not everybody owns livestock or lives on a ranch. Texas is a very urban

state. However, I have seen people on horseback at the Sonic drive-in. Bruce Springsteen wasn’t riffing: There really is a Cadillac Ranch. It’s beside a stretch of highway just outside Amarillo. It’s kind-of cool. The guy who helped finance it can most charitably be called eccentric and is currently being sued for molestation and sexual abuse of a teenager. No matter what brand or flavor, a carbonated soft drink is a “Coke.” “Right quick” means you’re doing something immediately or speedily, e.g., “I’m just going to make this guacamole right quick, and then supper will be ready.” The Texas panhandle (the part of the state the cowboy hat in Texas Roadhouse’s logo covers) is closer to several other state capitals than its own, and gets about as much love from those other capitals as its own. There’s no such thing as “country fried sirloin.” It’s “chicken fried steak.” Texans and Illinoisans have one important thing in common: The people who run their states. ’Nuff said?

8 TODAY’S TALKER

Libraries now lend more than books The Associated Press GROSSE POINTE FARMS, Mich. – Books and DVDs weren’t what Ralph Mandarino wanted when he went to the Grosse Pointe Public Library. The 75-year-old retired businessman checked out a tree lopper and a tape measure, two of the more than 100 tools available to patrons of the suburban Detroit library. In a number of communities across the U.S., it’s possible to borrow tools, musical instruments, fishing poles and much more from the local public library. The trend expands the traditional role of the library as a community resource for free knowledge. Libraries see the programs as a new way to offer residents a chance to learn – just not necessarily with a book. “It doesn’t make sense to buy it and then to have to store it,” said Mandarino, who used the lopper to trim branches on his nearby property. Libraries in Ann Arbor, Mich.; Oakland, Calif.; Burlington, Vt., and Skokie, among others, feature what Ann Arbor District Library Associate Director Celeste Choate calls “unusual collections.” “What we want to do is provide an added benefit to the community and provide them with things they might not have access to otherwise,” said Choate, whose library offers telescopes, art prints, energy meters and drums among its varied holdings.

Rather, she said, they simply are adhering to the long-stated mission of the public library to have jointly owned resources available to the community.

It’s not like we’re suddenly threatened and have to do something about it,” said Anthony, who also is the director of the Skokie Public Library.

Hopkins Pool plan has ’15 deadline By DAVID THOMAS dthomas@shawmedia.com DeKALB – As the DeKalb park commissioners contemplate the future of the aging Hopkins Pool, they now have a deadline for their work: 2015. That’s when the DeKalb Park District has to submit to the state a plan to make the pool comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, said Lisa Small, the assistant director of finance and administration. “If we have a pool upgrade plan in place with a timeline, they won’t come in here and shut us down in March 2015,” Small said. “If we said we’re addressing these with our new pool and our time is beyond that, they will acknowledge you’re addressing it.”

Small’s comments came during a two-hour workshop meeting of the DeKalb park board Thursday. It was a workshop meeting, so public comment was not allowed and no official action was taken. Commissioners Mike Teboda and Don Irving were not present. The meeting was a public conversation between the park commissioners, district administrators, and park district staffers who work to keep the park district facilities operational. The various officials shared their ideas – and their worries – about replacing the 39-year-old Hopkins Pool. The ideas are focused on three different options for the pool: repair, start over or collaborate with nearby Sycamore. Park staff noted that

parts of the pool still are in good shape, such as the concrete bowl holding the water. But they don’t know the condition of all the pipes that lead into the pool. And there’s concern about how much renovation the DeKalb Park District can do on a pool that is out-of-date. “Sometimes, when you get involved with an improvement project, if the percentage of the project is up to a certain size, then you have to revert to recent [building] code,” said Brad Garrison, assistant director of planning and development. The commissioners also discussed the possibility of building a new pool in a new location. DeKalb Kiwanis Park, located along South Fourth Street near Huntley Middle School, and Katz

Park, located along West Dresser Road near DeKalb High School, were floated as alternate sites. And then there was the issue of cost. The previous park board was considering borrowing $5 million to pay for pool renovations. However, park board President Phil Young said the cost to replace Hopkins Pool with a quality pool would be more expensive than that. “I’m sure, if we wanted to, we could build a pool for $5 million, but it won’t serve the needs of the community,” Young said in an interview. During the meeting, Young said he was uncomfortable with borrowing more money when the park district still is paying off its Sports and Recreation Center. Those bonds

Sycamore gas tax still bolsters roads By FELIX SARVER

Funding sources for street improvements

fsarver@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – A two-cent gasoline tax Sycamore leaders implemented five years ago has generated more than $1 million to help repair the aging streets in the city. Since 2008, the gasoline tax has contributed $1.2 million to the city’s street maintenance fund. First Ward Alderman Alan Bauer already has seen the effects of the gasoline tax in his own ward, which has some of the oldest streets in the city. Kishwaukee Drive used to be in poor condition until it was rebuilt two summers ago, he said. “If you drive around Sycamore, you’ll notice, by golly, they’re getting better,” Bauer said. This summer the city plans to fix portions of 12 streets, including Parkmoor Court, Lincoln Street and Home Street, Sycamore City Manager Bri-

an Gregory said. City officials identified about 74 streets and alleys that needed repairs. In the four years after this year, the city will be able to address them, he said. The estimated cost of the repairs is $4.8 million. The gasoline tax is one of the many sources of revenue for the street maintenance fund. The fund also is supported by the 0.5 percent sales tax and state motor fuel tax. In the most recent fiscal year, which ended April 30, the local gasoline tax generated $239,433, while the 0.5 percent sales tax generated more than $1 million and the state motor

fuel tax generated $505,068. The city decided to implement the gasoline tax along with a 0.5 percent increase in the city’s sales tax to address the long list of streets needing repairs. “We’ve got an obligation to maintain the infrastructure and many years prior to 2008, there were very limited funds available,” Gregory said. The gasoline tax will continue to be used because not all the streets can be repaired at once, Gregory said. As soon as one street is fixed, several others are getting older and will soon need repairs, too. Each spring the city eval-

uates the streets and decides which ones need repair based on how damaged they are, Bauer said. Evaluations happen in the spring to take into account any damage sustained during the winter season. Once the streets are evaluated, they are put on a list that prioritizes which ones will be fixed during the summer depending on the damage, he said. Bauer said street repairs have become less expensive because sewer systems are not removed. Instead, the black top on the street is peeled off, the curbs are replaced and a new surface is put on, he said. Once the city has repaired the streets that need it, the city can continue to maintain the streets it already has improved, Gregory said. “It will, in a long run, allow us to keep the streets smooth and also extend the longevity of the streets,” he said.

Do you have to cut

services? At the same time, we don’t want to see the pool break down tomorrow and not have a pool for two-plus years.” The board was scheduled to talk about collaborating with Sycamore Park District on a pool, but commissioners ran out of time to discuss it.

Fundraiser aids vet’s store Lower college loan rates to be restored

By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com MARENGO – An entrepreneurial veteran has taken his plans to expand his Marengo apparel business directly to the community. Noah Currier, founder and owner of Oscar Mike, a clothing store in Marengo, said a community-based donation drive is the ideal move for a business that prides itself on being all-American made. He plans to use the money to expand the store’s product line. The former Marine, who served in Iraq in 2003, and his staff raised more than $48,900 through Thursday through Kickstarter.com, a crowd-sourcing website that funds creative projects. Those donations would allow Oscar Mike to add a new line of T-shirts, but Currier hopes to raise $2 million by the campaign’s Aug. 16 end to add inventory including athletic gear, active wear and outdoor equipment. “I don’t know if we will hit that mark or not. If it ended today, I wouldn’t lose sleep over it,” Currier said, noting that other Kickstarter campaigns have generated $1 million. “I’m actually proud of what we accomplished already, but I think we can do a lot more.” One of Currier’s shirts received national attention in February after a teacher required 14-year-old Genoa Middle School student Michael McIntyre to turn it inside out. The teacher erroneously be-

Currier, 31, is paralyzed as a result of a car accident three days after returning from combat in Iraq. Eight years later, he and a friend hatched the clothing store idea as a way to support adaptive sporting competitions, with an emphasis on promoting products manufactured in the United States.

WASHINGTON – A bipartisan compromise on student loans promises better deals for students and parents over the next few years but could spell higher rates as the economy improves. The Senate deal pegs the interest rates on new loans to the financial markets and was expected to come to a vote next week, well before students returning to campus this fall have to sign their loan agreements. Under the deal, undergraduates this fall could borrow at a 3.9 percent interest rate. Graduate students would have access to loans at 5.4 percent, and parents would be able to borrow at 6.4 percent. Those rates would climb as the economy improves and it becomes more expensive for the government to borrow money. The compromise undoes the doubling of rates on some student loans that took hold July 1, and one analysis of the Senate deal suggests incoming freshmen would save more than $3,300 in in-

terest. “We have gone through weeks of negotiations and we have an agreement,” said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. At the White House, spokesman Jay Carney said President Barack Obama was “glad to see that a compromise seems to be coming together.” And Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., said students benefited: “For every one of them, the interest rates on their loans will be lower.” At least for now. The compromise could be a good deal for students through the 2015 academic year, but then interest rates are expected to climb above where they were when students left campus in the spring. Even in announcing the compromise, it was clear the negotiations were dicey. “While this is not the agreement any of us would have written, and many of us would like to have seen something quite different, I believe that we have come a very long way on reaching common ground,” Durbin told reporters.

8STATE BRIEF Fertilizer industry grows despite safety concerns TUSCOLA – In years past, economic development in this small Illinois town meant modest projects. But now there is a bigger prospect. Cronus Chemicals wants to build a $1.2 billion plant on a nearby cornfield that would manufacture nitrogen-based fertilizer, a staple of the corn and soybean farms that fill the landscape around Tuscola. Similar projects are being proposed across the nation, driven by booming demand for corn and newly abundant supplies of natural gas, a

major component in fertilizer production. The plants promise thousands of jobs during construction and hundreds of full-time spots once they’re up and running. And most of them would go in small, rural towns where economic development isn’t easy. The wave of potential expansion comes with concerns. An explosion at a Texas fertilizer plant in April killed 15 people, highlighting the dangers of such facilities and how loosely they’re regulated. Government oversight of such chemicals varies from state to state.

Work part of NIU ‘residential renaissance’ Ill. jobless rate rises • GILBERT HALL Continued from page A1 After two years at community college, Boehm enrolled at NIU in 2010 and stayed in Neptune North for a year. At 21, she said she felt disconnected from the other students on her floor. “It was a great experience, but I wouldn’t do it for another whole year after that,” Boehm said. “I don’t think things were maintained as well, and I was significantly older than most of the girls on the floor. I was old enough and ready to move on.” Gilbert Hall is the latest step in NIU’s “residential renaissance” – a multitiered campaign university officials are using to change the face of campus. Also included in the residential renaissance is the construction and opening of New Hall and the Chessick Practice Center, various parking projects, and the gradual renovation of Grant Towers. “Technology has changed since these buildings were built,” NIU spokesman Paul Palian said. “Student needs have changed. To deliver a 21st century education, the university undertook the development of 21st century residence hall experience.” In 2010, NIU sold $126 million in Build America Bonds

Support of unions waning • HEALTH CARE Continued from page A1 not devoted much time or energy to selling it to the country, speaking on the subject only occasionally as Republicans have pressed to undermine the program. Obama is returning to the subject because enrollment begins Oct. 1 for subsidized private coverage through online markets. Goals of the overhaul are to provide coverage to nearly 50 million uninsured people and restrain skyrocketing costs, but Americans remain skeptical about how their coverage may be affected. Even Obama’s allies in the labor unions have turned around their former support of the law out of fears that it will jeopardize benefits for millions of their members by increasing costs. Union leaders also say companies are scaling back work time to avoid providing coverage required for employees who work 30 hours or more. Some labor leaders are now calling for repeal or reform of the law. Obama launched an impassioned defense of the law at the White House in front of several families who have received refund checks under a provision that requires insurers to spend at least 80 cents of every premium dollar on medical care and quality improvement or reimburse the difference. He said rebates are being sent for 8.5 million Americans this summer, averaging $100 each. However, much of the money goes to employers, who are required to use the money to benefit employees in some way. Meanwhile, Obama said lawmakers are “trying to make political hay” out of health care and should be worrying about fixing other problems the country faces. “Instead, we’re refighting these old battles,” Obama said. “Sometimes I just try to figure out why. Maybe they think it’s good politics, but part of our job here is not to always think about politics.” The problem isn’t politics, the Republicans counter. “The picture that the president paints of his health care law looks nothing like the reality facing struggling American families,” Boehner said in a statement responding to Obama’s event. “They know that the law is turning out to be a train wreck.”

By the numbers Gilbert Hall is a 280-bed residence hall offering single rooms, double rooms, and double-as-single rooms. Here is how much rooms on campus will cost a student per semester, assuming they take the most expensive dining plan. 2013-14 room and board rates, per semester: • Stevenson Towers: $7,365 • Gilbert Hall, double-as-single room: $7,322 • Stevenson Towers, suite-as-single without bathroom: $7,111 • New Hall, single room: $6,972* • Neptune Hall, double-as-single room: $6,579 • Gilbert Hall, single room/Grant C & D Towers, single room/Stevenson Towers, single room: $6,534 • Stevenson Towers, suites with bathrooms: $6,336 • Stevenson Towers, suites without bathroom: $6,083 • Gilbert Hall, double room/Grant C & D Towers, double room/Stevenson Towers, double room : $5,895 • Douglas/Lincoln/Neptune Hall, double room: $5,337 *denotes that this is the 2012-13 rate. This is subject to change at a later date.

to fund many of the projects involved in the university’s residential renewal. At the time, university officials estimated the cost of renovating Gilbert Hall at $22.3 million. Build America Bonds allowed government entities to borrow money for capital projects at lower interest rates. The federal government also pledged to refund up to 35 percent of the interest paid on the bonds. They were included as a portion of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a round of economic stimulus measures launched by President Barack Obama’s administration.

The university’s residential overhaul is just one part of NIU’s larger Vision 2020 initiative, a series of improvements designed to re-imagine NIU’s role and impact. The initiative was spearheaded by former President John Peters, and is being continued by current President Doug Baker. Junior geology major Nicole Enerson stayed in Douglas Hall, which she described as having “no horror stories.” After briefly leaving NIU to go to community college, Enerson is back to finish her education. This time, she’s living in an apartment.

“I was in a relationship,” Enerson said. “The dorms didn’t really seem to be a good fit for what we’re trying to do. So we live just off of campus. ... It ended up being easier to cook our own food and buy our own groceries than with a meal plan.” Unlike Boehm, Enerson said the residence halls did factor in her decision to enroll at NIU. She said her brother had a great time living in Douglas and Stevenson. She has only seen pictures of NIU’s new dorms, and she said students living there should count their blessings. “They have it lucky,” Enerson said.

CHAMPAIGN – The jobless rate in Illinois increased slightly in June while manufacturers and local governments cut more jobs than they added, the state Department of Employment Security said Thursday. The statewide unemployment rate increased to 9.2 percent last month, up from 9.1 percent in May. June’s figure ended two months of decreasing unemployment. Employers around the state added a net 5,400 nonfarm jobs for the month. And department Director Jay Rowell was encouraged by the net 9,000 jobs added

by private-sector employers. “Continued private sector job growth suggests business leaders expect that consumers will feel better about spending money and they must prepare for that increase in demand,” Rowell said in a news release. June unemployment figures aren’t yet available for every state, but Illinois’ jobless rate was among the highest in the country in May. Only Nevada was worse, at 9.5 percent. Manufacturers cut a net 1,600 jobs for the month. Manufacturing was one of the state’s strongest employment sectors until recent months.

Time off is good for all

View from my perch of white privilege In 2002, Michael Green extracted a single promise from me during the year I spent reporting about his life after he spent 13 years in prison for a rape he did not commit. Green, who is African-American, knew I’d be giving a lot of speeches about his story, including at high schools in Cleveland. He saw an opportunity to save lives. “Tell the boys,” he said to me over and over. “Tell the boys this comes from me: If the police stop you, don’t ever run. Take your hands out of your pockets. Immediately. Put your hands over your head. Immediately. Stand perfectly still, and keep your opinions to yourself.” “You have to promise,” he said. “You have to warn them.” I’ve written about this promise a number of times over the years. I do that because I want to keep my word and share the warning in as large a forum as possible. If I’m honest with myself, though, I have to admit I also do it because I want to feel a little less guilty about my unearned privilege as a white woman. As a white mother, to be precise. My worries never rival those of most African-American mothers. Most days, I’d rather not think about that. Again, such privilege. A decade ago, neither Green nor I knew to warn about the likes of George Zimmerman. He was no cop, despite his fancy notions of himself as a civilian enforcer. Instead, he was empowered by a law cooked up by the National Rifle Association and a certainty in his right to pursue an unarmed teenager who fit his description of a suspect. Some warned that this could happen, but we all should have seen it coming. Earlier this week, in a speech to the

VIEWS Connie Schultz NAACP, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder described a family ritual all too familiar to many in the audience. His father sat him down. The talk his father gave, Holder said, was “about how, as a young black man, I should interact with the police, what to say and how to conduct myself if I was ever stopped or confronted in a way that I thought was unwarranted. Now, I’m sure my father felt certain at that time that my parents’ generation would be the last that had to worry about such things for their children.” Some family traditions just won’t die in this country. After Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, Holder sat his own 15-year-old son down. “This was a father-son tradition I hoped would not need to be handed down,” he said. “But as a father who loves his son and who is more knowing in the ways of the world, I had to do this to protect my boy. I am his father, and it is my responsibility not to burden him with the baggage of eras long gone but to make him aware of the world that he must still confront. This is a sad reality in a nation that is changing for the better in so many ways.” Ever since the verdict was announced and Zimmerman walked free, I’ve been trying to write this column. How can I not have something to say about this? Yet every approach feels wrong. I feel conspicuously white – and defensive – embarrassingly eager to talk

about how I raised my children to be better than their parents and their grandparents before them, how they never see race before face, how they never think to describe their friends by the color of their skin. Just saying that out loud makes me wince. Oh, great. Another obnoxious white liberal celebrating her own good intentions. I keep fighting the urge to explain myself to my black friends, to offer evidence of how I could have turned out worse than this clumsy version of me. There are many, many times when I miss my father, but this week isn’t one of them. I’m glad not to have that conversation that rips open old wounds and launches another round of estrangement. He once grounded me for an entire summer after he found out about my seventh-grade crush on a black boy. “We don’t mix,” he yelled, eyes bulging, fists flexing at his side. I look back on that summer as the first time I realized my beloved father was wrong, just wrong, and I no longer wanted to be just like him. After more than a decade as a columnist, I know what’s coming. Just telling that story will trigger another round of angry emails. Some white readers will demand to know what kind of daughter says such things about her father. On and on it goes.

America needs a new Voting Rights Act By NORMAN ORNSTEIN For The Washington Post Imagine an intersection with a long history of high-speed car crashes, injuries and fatalities. Authorities put up a traffic light and a speed camera and the accidents and injuries plummet. A few years later, authorities declare “mission accomplished” and remove the light and speed camera. No surprise, the highspeed crashes and fatalities resume almost immediately. This is the logic that animated Chief Justice John Roberts’ decision to fillet the Voting Rights Act and that had conservative pundits, including George F. Will, praising the act as they simultaneously exulted in its demise. The predictable result took less than a day: Texas reinstated its racially tilted gerrymandered redistricting plan and moved to implement its highly restrictive voter ID law, under which voters can be required to travel as far as 250 miles to get identification. The real intent, voter suppres-

sion, is clear in the legislation’s provision that a concealed-weapon permit can be used to vote but a valid student photo ID cannot. With expensive, slow and complex lawsuits the only real recourse for voter discrimination and suppression actions, the floodgates are open to an array of legal efforts designed to suppress or diminish the votes of minorities, students and others. As Roberts undoubtedly knew, chances are slim that our highly polarized Congress can reach agreement on a new formula for the Voting Rights Act. But the decision in Shelby County v. Holder should serve as a springboard to something more ambitious: a drive for a new Voting Rights Act that would go beyond the scope of the original to make voting more universal and accessible to all eligible Americans. Section 4 of the act, which the court struck down, set out a formula by which certain states and jurisdictions are designated to need federal permission

for any changes to their voting procedures. If Congress cannot agree on a formula for which states and localities to include for this preclearance, election reform expert Heather Gerken has suggested another option: Allow civil rights groups and the minority voters they represent, anywhere in the nation, to “opt in” to the Voting Rights Act by filing an administrative complaint with the Justice Department when their voting rights are constrained. However lawmakers resolve the issue of preclearance, a VRA 2.0 should also include: • A separate federal ballot. Congress has the clear constitutional right to manage federal elections. A separate ballot for federal races strengthens that control. Other advantages include no more confusing butterfly ballots; there would be no more than three races (president, Senate and House) on a federal ballot. • A new voter registration regime. The United States is the

only major democracy where the burden of registering to vote is on the citizen. The default should be that eligible citizens are presumed registered, with same-day voter registration available for those not registered via their draft registration or driver’s license. • Weekend Election Day. As WhyTuesday.org has pointed out, the law mandating federal elections on Tuesdays was crafted in 1845 to accommodate Market Day. “Election Day” should suit contemporary life: a 24-hour period from noon Saturday to noon Sunday, with early voting the week before. This would eliminate “rush-hour” backlogs early in the morning and at the end of the day, as well as Sabbath problems.

Both employers and employees benefit when workers take advantage of their vacation time. Unfortunately, many people do not take time away from work – either because they are too concerned about leaving their post for an extended period, or because vacation time is not offered to them through their employer. A 2012 survey by the online travel site Expedia.com found that American workers received an average of 12 paid vacation days each year, but used only 10 of them. Taking time away from the office is good for workers, even the most essential. It allows them to recharge, to reflect on aspects of their life without work, and often helps them return to work with a fresh perspective and a renewed motivation – at least, after the shock of returning to For the record their workaday routine has worn off. Taking time away It benefits employers from the office is as well. At some businessgood for workers and es – banks, for example – their employers. But employees are required to American workers have take at least an entire week no guaranteed vacation off at a time. This mandate or other time off. is strictly in the interest of self-preservation of the institution, as it often foils any system an employee might have for breaking the rules with money. In fact, that is how the massive embezzlement scheme perpetrated by former Dixon city Treasurer and Comptroller Rita Crundwell was discovered. Crundwell was on vacation, and the person filling in for her stumbled upon a secret bank account where she had been diverting public funds for her own use. Unfortunately, American workers have no vacation time or other time off guaranteed them, putting the U.S. worker last among all the countries of the developed world. Even Japan, whose people are famous for their intense work ethic, requires its workers to have 10 vacation days each year. Although nothing is guaranteed for American workers, in reality many of us are afforded paid vacation and holidays through our employers. According to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, 74 percent of workers have access to paid vacation time through their employers – a figure that would be higher if teachers’ summer break time were taken into account. So even if your bank account won’t allow you to jet off to some tropical paradise or take a road trip to see some beautiful part of America other than our own, why not try a “staycation,” where you don’t go to work but spend some time – and money – at local spots you’ve wanted to visit but just haven’t had time? Vacation time should be afforded all workers. Everyone benefits when workers use the time-off benefits they’ve earned.

8 ANOTHER VIEW

Increasing drone use requires rules Drones, developed for military use at war, are increasingly being deployed over U.S. skies, looking for everything from suspicious people along the border to missing people to fishing violations. Clearly, Americans are losing yet more expectation of privacy. Though there is no evidence they have been yet, the unmanned aircraft could be outfitted with cameras and facial recognition programs to spy on anyone out of doors. And recent revelations that the Customs and Border Protection Agency is considering equipping them with “nonlethal weapons” should give Americans even more concern. The agency has loaned its drones to other agencies for domestic spying, 30 times in 2010, increasing to 250 last year. Among the agencies that have used them are the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the North Dakota Army National Guard, Texas Department of Public Safety and the U.S. Forest Service. Though drones could offer a tool for national security, the increasing use and the potential for equipping them with weapons show a need for Congress to set up rules to govern their use and procedures to ensure adequate oversight of their use. Some states have also proposed rules regarding their use. The American Civil Liberties Union has recommended limits on their usage, data retention and weapons, and said policies regarding their use should be developed by the public, not law enforcement agencies, and the rules should be clear and open to the public. It’s time for states and Congress to set up the rules that will protect Americans from misuse of this new technology. Loveland (Colo.) Reporter-Herald

Nebraska game at Soldier Field nixed Jeff Krage for Shaw Media

Cougars to welcome 10 millionth fan GENEVA – The Kane County Cougars expect to welcome their 10 millionth fan to the ballpark this week. The Cubs’ farm team would become the first Class A team in minor league baseball history to reach 10 million fans. The organization expects to hit the milestone during Saturday night’s game at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva. The lucky fan will be greeted at the gate by mascot Ozzie T. Cougar and given gifts from the organization, including a team jersey, an autographed team bat and a 10-game customized ticket package for next season. The Cougars are in their 23rd season. General manager Curtis Haug said milestones like the 10 millionth fan are “very significant and certainly worth celebrating.” – Wire report

1977 Class A state champions celebrated 35th anniversary in 2012 By LUKE SRODULSKI lsrodulski@shawmedia.com

E

ven if the 1977 Genoa-Kingston football team wasn’t recently welcomed back to town and honored, it’s unlikely the state champions soon will be forgotten. That season was the peak of a significant stretch of dominance from G-K, all while having to compete against the Little Eight Conference. That league put G-K up against tough teams such as Hampshire (state title winners in 1976, 1979) and Burlington.

Note to readers This is the second in a seven-part series that takes a look back at some of the greatest sports teams from our local high schools. One team from DeKalb, Sycamore, Genoa-Kingston, Hinckley-Big Rock, Kaneland, Hiawatha and Indian Creek will be featured in the series.

Still, the Cogs were able to cement their status as an annual contender, much because of their leadership. Dave Russell had so much success as the Cogs’ head coach that the high

school’s football field now bears his name, and with good reason. “He was a good coach,” said Bobby Davidson, a junior offensive lineman on the team. “He kept us in line. If you screwed up, he would tell you about it. He would pull you to the side and he’d be yelling and screaming at you, but I guess that’s what kept us going.” The start of the season was marked by state title ambitions. The team knew it was good enough, but it was too early to tell. After opening the season with three consecutive shutouts, those ambitions turned to expectations.

Russell’s team sneaked past Hampshire in overtime and then routed Burlington, 20-0, leaving no doubt about who controlled the conference. Injuries led to missed games for several key players, but with the depth of the team, the Cogs kept rolling. As Russell said later, it never was about one player. “We don’t have a bunch of individual stars,” Russell said at the championship celebration that season. “We didn’t have guys make all-state, like some of the other teams did, but our whole team made all-state.”

The Sox need to determine whether Josh Phegley (left), 25, can be their catcher of the future. Otherwise, they have a considerable hole to fill in the offseason. Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro (right), coming off back-to-back All-Star appearances, is hitting a career-worst .243 with a .280 on-base percentage, six home runs and only 29 RBIs and will look to turn those numbers around in the second half of the season.

WHITE SOX Phegley phenomenon: Catcher Josh Phegley made his major league debut July 5 at Tampa Bay and has since energized the Sox. Although he’s cooled off at the plate, batting .241 in eight games, Phegley has shown off his power, hitting three home runs with nine RBIs. Manager Robin Ventura has said Phegley and Tyler Flowers will split time evenly behind the plate, but Phegley’s performance is pushing that to change. Flowers, 27, hasn’t proved he’s capable of being the Sox’s everyday catcher, posting a .205 batting average and .255 on-base percentage in 69 games. The Sox need to determine whether Phegley, 25, can be their catcher of the future. Otherwise, they have a considerable hole to fill in the offseason. Who stays, who goes: The Sox need to replenish a farm system seriously lacking impact talent, and general manager Rick Hahn will have tough decisions to make as to whom they should trade to bring back talent. With reliever Matt Thornton already dealt to Boston, the Sox need reliever Jesse Crain and starting pitcher Jake Peavy to come off the disabled list and prove they are healthy before the July 31 trade deadline. If Crain and Peavy are traded along with outfielder Alex Rios, a bad

CUBS Next vs. Atlanta, 7:10 p.m. today, CSN, AM-670

Sox team will get worse. With a roster already littered with Triple-A Charlotte players, the final two-plus months of the season will be tough to watch.

Young players on display: It’s not all gloom and doom for the Sox. Second baseman Gordon Beckham, who was part of trade speculation during the offseason, has thrived since coming off the DL after breaking his wrist. Beckham leads the Sox, hitting .335 with only 26 strikeouts in 44 games while keeping his defense at a Gold Glove level. Lefty Chris Sale remains one of the best starting pitchers in the majors in spite of a 6-8 record. Sale has no-hit potential every time he takes the mound, and he alone is worth watching the Sox. Even though the Sox won’t sniff the playoffs, Beckham and Sale in particular are putting together encouraging seasons.

Roster moves galore: With the Cubs ready to sell most assets for a team’s best offer, they will look noticeably different come September. Pitchers Matt Garza and Kevin Gregg are likely gone, and lefty James Russell could join them. Outfielder Nate Schierholtz has impressed and should be traded as well. Those departures, plus expanded rosters in September, will create plenty of spots for minor leaguers. Third baseman/outfielder Junior Lake will get the first shot to prove himself, given all the outfield injuries (Brian Bogusevic, David DeJesus and Ryan Sweeney all are sidelined). Lake, 23, hit .295 with four home runs and 18 RBIs in 40 games at Triple-A Iowa. Iowa teammates Logan Watkins and pitchers Brooks Raley and Chris Rusin could join the Cubs at some point. Influence on playoff race: Although the Cubs are an extreme long shot to make the playoffs – trailing the NL Central-leading Cardinals by 15 games – they still will have an influence on the playoff race. The Cubs play divison foes Cardinals, Pirates and Reds, owners of three of the top four records in the NL, a combined 22 times in the second half. The Cubs also have 14 games left against the top three teams in the NL West (Diamondbacks, Dodgers and Rockies, separated by 4½ games). Playing spoiler is

Next at Colorado, 7:40 p.m. today, WGN, AM-720 never ideal, but the Cubs have an opportunity to ruin a few teams’ playoff aspirations.

Core needs strong finish: Shortstop Starlin Castro and first baseman Anthony Rizzo haven’t impressed since each signed seven-year contracts worth a combined $101 million. It’s too early to be overly concerned by their first-half output, but Castro and Rizzo certainly didn’t perform offensively as well as the Cubs expected. Coming off back-toback All-Star appearances, Castro is hitting a career-worst .243 with a .280 on-base percentage, six home runs and only 29 RBIs. Rizzo isn’t faring much better, batting .241 with a .328 on-base percentage, although he has hit for power, with 13 home runs and 54 RBIs, which is similar production to last year. Castro and Rizzo need to use these final 69 games to get back on track, otherwise it’ll be a long offseason for the youngsters.

WNBA ALL-STAR GAME

Delle Donne top vote-getter for All-Star team Sky 75, Liberty 55

By DOUG FEINBERG

NEWARK, N.J. – The culture is changing around the Sky, and rookie Elena Delle Donne is a big reason why. Delle Donne scored 23 points and the Sky routed the New York Liberty, 75-55, in a matinee game Thursday. She’s leading the team in scoring, averaging 19 points, and has helped the Sky take over sole possession of first place in the Eastern Conference. It’s the latest in the season that the Sky (11-4) have been in first since the team came into the WNBA in 2006. The Sky still are looking for their first trip to the postseason after missing by one game last year. – The Associated Press

NEW YORK – Elena Delle Donne already is leaving her mark in the WNBA. The Sky star became the first rookie to lead the league’s AllStar voting when the starters were announced Thursday night. Delle Donne received 35,646 votes, nearly 2,000 more than Los Angeles Sparks forward Candace Parker. “I’m speechless about it, it’s incredible to come in as a rookie and know I have that many fans is so humbling and awesome,” said Delle Donne after her team beat the New York Liberty, 7555, in a matinee game Thursday. “I’ll try to continue to do them proud.” The Sky first-year player, who was the No. 2 pick in the WNBA draft in April, will be joined on the Eastern Confer-

gives me some comfort that Piph’s out there with me.” Prince is playing in her second All-Star game, but was honored to be voted in this year by the fans after being chosen by the coaches in 2011. “It’s very humbling to me because there are a lot of great players out there,” Prince said. “For me it isn’t the first time, but it’s the first time the fans voted for me and I appreciate it.” The other Eastern Conference starters are New York’s Cappie Pondexter, Atlanta’s Angel McCoughtry and Indiana’s Tamika Catchings, who will be playing in her eighth All-Star game. “It’s going to be extremely exciting to have some of those girls on my team now and also to continue to play against the best in the league,” Delle Donne said. “It should be a really good time and I will have a lot of fun with it and really enjoy myself.”

‘Bring a lot of Kleenex for the tears’ Good start for Woods in bid to end drought GULLANE, Scotland – Bubba wasn’t clubbing much and Dustin wasn’t bustin’ anything. The “Belgian Bomber,” meanwhile, was completely disarmed. If you love seeing professional golfers squeezed out of their comfort zone, come visit Muirfield, where warmer temperatures, gentler winds and more sunshine than this corner of Scotland usually sees in a month has produced a golf course that resembles an airport tarmac in more than a few places. Suffice it to say that players who can’t – or won’t – adapt in a hurry might as well start booking flights home right now. Like just about everyone else during Thursday’s opening round at the British Open, three of the longest hitters in the game were determined not to let the big dog out of the bag. Bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson each hit driver exactly once during the round, and the third member of their group, Nicolas Colsaerts, not at all. The first two adjusted nicely, shooting 70 and 68, respectively. The big-hitting Belgian skied to a 75. “On even the long par 4s,” Johnson said, “a little 3-iron is going further than a 3-wood up in the air.” “How far?” someone asked. “I hit a couple today,” Johnson replied matter-offactly, “that probably went 290.” Before we open it up to debate about whether Muirfield – which dates to 1891 and has remained largely intact the past 93 years – is fair or hopelessly zany, it’s worth remembering every golfer in the field is playing the same course. And that all knew exactly the kind of fast, firm conditions that awaited them. Even so, more than a few reacted with surprise and about as much equanimity as you’d expect. “8th hole is a joke,” Ian Poulter tweeted, “18th needs a windmill & clown face.”

VIEWS Jim Litke “Each tee you’re standing on,” Oliver Fisher said, “is just a battle.” “We’ve got to let go of our ego sometimes,” said Phil Mickelson, who by “our” meant the officials of the Royal & Ancient responsible for letting the fairways bake and the rough grow, then stashing the water hoses. He implored them to “just set the course up the way the best players Bubba Watson can win.” The empire struck back – in a hurry. “We’re obviously very conscious of player comment and we’ll take that into account when we decide how greenskeeping staff overnight is going to set up the course tomorrow,” R&A chief executive Peter Dawson said. In other words, deal with it. The strange thing is that a player’s view of Muirfield wasn’t always reflected by his score. Mickelson carded 69 and Fisher a 70. Poulter, despite collecting four bogeys in the last five holes, still shot 72. “I wouldn’t pay much attention to him. He’s always complaining,” laughed Poulter’s countryman, Lee Westwood. Asked a moment later about some of the precarious pin positions, the Englishman bared a stiff upper lip. “Well, they’re on the greens,” Westwood said. “Actually, I wouldn’t have even thought about them if you hadn’t asked.” If parts of the debate sound familiar, they should. Unlike their U.S. counterparts, officials setting up major championship venues over here generally have avoided lengthening the courses in

response to balls that fly farther and better-conditioned athletes, relying instead on pot bunkers, thick gorse and dicey weather to protect them. That attitude was best summed up by John Philp, the former greenskeeper at Carnoustie, who delighted watching the best golfers in the world squirm. In 1999, already facing criticism for a tough setup, Philp barely could hide his glee when gale-force winds pounded the course two hours up the coast as the first round began. “They’ve got titanium and psychologists,” Philp said. “All I’ve got is nature.” Nature certainly surprised Muirfield this year. Instead of panicking, R&A officials decided to play along. They let large swaths of fairways, and even some putting surfaces, turn from green to brown, from merely firm to breakneck fast, without getting overly concerned. They hardly think it’s too much to ask that the players do the same. “In your view,” BBC host Hazel Irvine asked Dawson late Thursday, “right now it is far from unplayable?” “Far from unplayable,” he replied. “But we do hear player comment and we’re not so insular as to ignore it.” Perhaps. Meantime, though, it clearly is on the golfers to figure out their next move. Many went home Thursday night conflicted. “We know it’s going to be tough, but that’s what makes this championship fun,” said Tim Clark, who shot 72. Asked whether he expected making any changes to his game for Round 2, the South African could only come up with one. “Bring a lot of Kleenex for the tears,” Clark said, “and that’s about it really.”

• BRITISH OPEN Continued from page B1 20 rounds under par. He knocked one putt clear off the green, but 10 one-putts – most of them for pars – carried him to a 69, a good start in his bid to end his five-year drought in the majors. “The golf course progressively got more dried out and more difficult as we played,” Woods said. “And I’m very pleased to shoot anything even par or better.” And for all the talk about Muirfield’s men-only membership, at least the club doesn’t discriminate against age. Mark O’Meara, the 56-yearold who won his claret jug in 1998 at Royal Birkdale, shot a 67 and nearly tied Johnson for the lead until his 25-foot birdie putt on the 18th took a hard spin out of the cup. Another former champion, 54-year-old Tom Lehman, opened with a 68. It was an eclectic group who broke par, from major champions to players making their British Open debut. What they all had in common was finding a way to get through a firm, fast and frightening test at Muirfield that figures to get even harder if the Royal & Ancient doesn’t put some water on the links course. Phil Mickelson opened with a 69 and felt like he got off easy by playing in the morning. Mickelson was concerned about some hole locations being too close to the edge of slopes, and he pleaded with the R&A to let go of its ego and “just set the course up the way the best players can win.” Some of the best did just fine. “Anytime you shoot under par in an Open – or a major, for that matter – you have to be putting at least somewhat decent,” Johnson said. “And I putted great. I made some nice birdie putts and obviously that one for eagle. But I

Tiger Woods plays a shot off the 16th tee during the first round of the British Open Championship on Thursday at Muirfield, Scotland.

Thursday at Muirfield GULLANE, Scotland – A glance at Thursday’s opening round of the British Open at 7,192-yard, par-71 Muirfield. Leading: Zach Johnson, who made only one bogey en route to a 5-under-par 66. Trailing: Mark O’Meara, who won this major championship in 1998, and Rafael Cabrera-Bello. Both shot 67. Where’s Tiger? Woods was three shots back at 69. Notable: A dozen players broke par in the morning teetime groups, but only eight in the afternoon as unseasonably warm temperatures and sunshine produced faster, firmer conditions throughout the day. Quotable: “Sometimes I feel like I’m walking out there and I’m unconscious.” Rory McIlroy after shooting 79.

struck some really nice, solid par putts. That’s what you’ve got to do to stay in it.” Rafael Cabrera-Bello of Spain joined O’Meara at 67, while the group at 68 included Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker, who each have contended on Sunday over the past two years in the Open. Two-time major champion Angel Cabrera, who lost in a playoff at the Masters in April, and 19-year-old Jordan

Spieth were in the group at 69. It was a beautiful day along the Firth of Forth. And it was hard work. No one felt safe until the ball stopped bouncing along the crusty fairways, and no one was sure when that would happen. “I haven’t seen anything like this,” said Snedeker, who tied the 36-hole Open record a year ago at Lytham. “I’ve played in, I think, five Opens. This is completely new to me – foreign to see a 2-iron going 300 yards. You have got to be wary of how you’re shaping your golf ball, and what shot selections you’re using on the greens.” O’Meara thought he hit a reasonable bunker shot on the 15th until it kept rolling – and rolling – off the green and into another bunker. “They get so glassy and crispy around the holes,” Graeme McDowell, who played with Woods, said after a 75. “You literally can see 300 footprints around the hole from all the players and caddies that have been out there today. They just get really shiny, and really glassy. I couldn’t single out a pin that I thought was unfair. But if you got on the wrong side of them, they could make you look very, very silly.” Yes, there was plenty of that.

Golf is a difficult game. Golfers want to hit the ball as hard as they can, but fight a slice when they do. Hitting the ball longer AND straighter makes playing golf faster, cheaper and much more fun; fewer lost balls to replace, less time searching for wayward drives and above all, greater enjoyment from shooting lower scores! Tour pros get help the average golfer doesn't. Golfweek (4/26) pointed out that golf ball manufacturers customize dimple patterns to provide specific launch characteristics for PGA Tour pros. Shouldn't those benefits be available to everyone? Polara Golf accomplishes that goal with its XD ball, delivering extra distance while correcting slices by up to 50% with its unique, asymmetrical dimple pattern. PGA Tour legend John Daly proclaims, "I'm really excited about being involved with Polara Golf. They've created terrific products for recreational golfers that allow them to Grip It and Rip It, get more distance, be more consistently in the fairway, and have a lot more fun on the golf course!" With the Polara ball, you too can Grip It and Rip It like John Daly without fearing that nasty slice! For those needing extra correction, the Polara Ultimate Straight reduces slices up to 75%. There could be a slight loss of distance, but you’ll be in the fairway. "Everyone loves to hit their low loft driver. But if you have a slice, using a 3-wood or at least 12° loft on your driver will allow you to hit the Ultimate Straight ball much farther and much, much straighter," Daly points out. “Try them and you’ll certainly experience the anti-slice effect.” Golf Tips Magazine stated, “If you’re a recreational golfer who tends to find the rough more than the fairway, your fast track to straighter shots has arrived. It’s a golf ball that flies straight, even when you put a slice swing on it.” Daly concludes, "I've had my own issues with wild shots in the past and Polara balls would have corrected them all. Polara balls are the perfect solution for any golfer who wants more distance but struggles with a slice."

including premium brands. Independent test manager Richard Levine, PhD, reported, “The Golf Labs’ robot was set up to simulate a 90 foot slice based on launch conditions of an average golfer. With the Polara Ultimate Straight ball we found that compared to several popular golf balls, which all sliced about 90 feet, the Polara ball corrected up to 70 feet of the 90 foot slice.”

Garnering National Acclaim

Bill Pennington (New York Times) wrote, “The design of the (Polara) ball corrects slices and hooks by 75 percent. When I took the ball to a New Jersey driving range, regular golfers and the occasional pro could not slice or hook the ball with any regularity.” Veteran journalist Ron Claiborne (ABC News, Good Morning America) reported,” I carefully teed up a Polara ball, arrow on top, as instructed. I reared back and let it rip. The ball soared high into the sky, arched and landed on the fairway about 250 yards away. It had flown straight and true from tee to landing. I was in shock. No slice! I hit another Polara. The same thing. And another. I simply could not hit a bad shot. It was a miracle.” Polara balls are designed for the vast majority of golfers, recreational players who want to take advantage of technology improvements and have more fun. “We’re not trying to remove the skill from the game,” said Polara’s director of R&D, David Felker. “We’re just trying to remove some of the frustration.” With Polara golf balls, hit longer straighter shots and have more fun - guaranteed or your money back.

TOUR DE FRANCE

Finally, France tastes victory at its 100th Tour By JOHN LEICESTER The Associated Press L’ALPE D’HUEZ, France – After five grueling hours of riding, as he strained and sweated to victory in an eye-popping Tour de France stage with crowds that turned cycling’s most famous climb into a huge and raucous high-mountain party, Christophe Riblon didn’t want it to stop. Winning a Tour stage is always special. Becoming the first French

stage winner at the 100th Tour was doubly special. Doing all this in front of hundreds of thousands of screaming fans, several rows deep up 21 steep hairpin bends in the Alps, well, Christophe Riblon wanted Riblon the pleasure to last and last. “It was as if the crowds were carrying me. Magical,”

Riblon said. “The last [halfmile] wasn’t long enough. I so would have liked to have profited more from that moment with the crowds. It was incredible. I would have liked for it to go on for [six miles] like that.” In a Tour that has offered a kaleidoscope of racing drama and scenic beauty from its June 29 start point on the French island of Corsica, this Stage 18 was the one that most set hearts racing and tongues wagging when organizers unveiled

the race route in October. When their bodies and minds already are sapped by more than two weeks of racing, it sent the riders not once but twice up the legendary climb to the ski station of L’Alpe d’Huez. Between the two ascents, the route hared down a sinewy, narrow and risky descent with no safety barriers that some riders, including Tour champion-in-the-making Chris Froome, felt was dangerous.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis smiles as he looks at an Emmy that was presented to him Thursday during a news conference in Cincinnati. HBO won the Emmy the last time it featured the Bengals, and hopes to repeat its success with the Bengals named as the featured team for the 2013 season of “Hard Knocks.”

BENGALS

Bengals repeating as ‘Hard Knocks’ subject By JOE KAY The Associated Press CINCINNATI – Four years after the Cincinnati Bengals were featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” show, coach Marvin Lewis still hears about his profane tirade to his team after a poor preseason game. The Bengals are ready to get the NFL talking about them again. NFL Films crews started shooting video Thursday for the first episode of the show, which follows a team through training camp. The Bengals are the second team to be featured twice during the show’s eight seasons – the Dallas Cowboys also made a second appearance. Cincinnati had quarterback Carson Palmer and receiver Chad Johnson – then going by the last name of Ochocinco – when it was on the 2009 show. “Hard Knocks” won two Emmy Awards that year for editing and production. Ross Ketover, an executive producer for the show, presented Lewis with one of the show’s Emmys on Thursday. “It’s not really the trophy that we’re actually striving for,” Lewis said, laughing, “but we’ve got some accomplishments to do along the way. But that’s awesome.” Many teams refuse to do “Hard Knocks” because it shows interactions between players, coaches and front-of-

fice managers in otherwise private moments. The Bengals had a few such moments during the 2009 show. One of the lasting lines was delivered by Lewis in the locker room after a preseason loss. Unhappy with a ragged performance, Lewis berated his team as the cameras rolled and screamed at the players. Lewis regretted that the moment was shown on TV. He said Thursday that he still gets comments about it. “I got one yesterday,” he said. “If you took the time to think about it, it’s probably something you would have done in the confines of your own group, but that’s something that just happens in the moment.” Numerous teams shy away from the show for that reason. The Bengals think another appearance will be popular with their fans. Lewis said he was fine with whatever owner Mike Brown decided. “People have asked, ‘Why?’ and it’s a couple of things,” Lewis said. “No. 1, from the standpoint of our fans, the comments people have made to me talking about what a great opportunity it was for them to get to know the Cincinnati Bengals players when we did it a few years ago in 2009. “And from the standpoint of me as the coach: We have to go win football games, regardless of who is watching.”

G-K topped Arcola, 18-0, in championship game • COGS Continued from page B1 By the end of the regular season, the Cogs had outscored opponents, 246-48, sending them into the playoffs with unrivaled momentum. Wins against Milledgeville, Monmouth and North Shore Country Day set up a championship game showdown against 11-0 Arcola on Nov. 25 in Normal. As they headed downstate, many of the G-K players were preparing for a calm, warm day, but in one night, the weather changed drastically. “We went down there and it was sunny, a beautiful day. Most guys were wearing T-shirts,” Davidson said. “And the next day, we woke up with four inches of snow and freezing weather.” But even if they had to play through the frigid temperatures, the Purple Riders had to as well. The main worry for the Cogs was how well Arcola had scouted them. G-K’s go-to play was a fullback run up the middle, so when Russell called it early on, Arcola sealed up the middle to prevent the run. After more than a quarter of offensive frustration, G-K quarterback Jim Potts adjusted. With 4:30 left in the second quarter, he collected the snap, faked a handoff, and hit receiver Danny Wylde with a 39-yard touchdown pass for a 6-0 lead. The Cogs never looked back, and they went on to win, 18-0, finishing off a 13-0

season. Even if the players expected it to happen, they still were extremely elated. When the Cogs returned to Genoa, Davidson remembers Main Street being filled with people who met the team and followed it back into town. Even the mayor, Bill Skinner, made an appearance at the celebration and was at a loss for words from the excitement. “I really don’t know what I’m going to say tonight,” Skinner said at the school celebration. “This has been probably the most thrilling day of my life.” The bond within the community has led many team members to stick around. Russell stepped down in 1994 with a 152-50-1 record, but he still resides in the area. Davidson is a custodian at G-K, and he has been in the school district for almost 20 years. And former fullback Tom Price’s son, Adam, was a quarterback for the Cogs this past season. Even if some players didn’t stay in Genoa, many have taken the time to reunite on occasions, like the 35-year anniversary of the state championship that took place at G-K’s 2012 home opener. When they do, it allows them to reminisce on the bond they built, a bond strong enough to carry the weight of an entire football-crazy community. “We all became good friends,” Davidson said. “When we come back to town, it’s just great to see them again. Friendships like that, you never lose.”

Eric Gilbert, director of youth services at The Salvation Army DeKalb Community Corps., looks through a camcorder at children belonging to the Grace Children’s Home in Uganda. Last year, Gilbert went on a mission trip to Uganda with Child Initiative International and plans to go again this August.

Helping others help themselves DeKalb youth director headed to Uganda By FELIX SARVER fsarver@shawmedia.com

E

ric Gilbert still finds himself drawn to help the people of Uganda despite the

extreme conditions that exist there. Gilbert, who is the director of youth services for The Salvation Army DeKalb Community Corps., has been to Uganda four times and plans to go again in August. When he realized the level of destruction in Uganda, he wanted to offer what help he could. “I heard the Gospel and the calling to go and help those in need,” Gilbert said.

Gilbert will be traveling with Child Initiative International, a faith-based charity organization that focuses on helping children throughout the world. During the mission trip, Gilbert will teach children and help those who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. He also will receive leadership training on how to manage mission trips. Phil Klikas, lead pastor of Child Initiative International, said he will teach Gilbert how to lead people and carry out the intensive job of mission work. One aspect of leading a mission trip is preparing people for the extreme situations they may encounter in a place like Uganda, Klikas said. Outside of jarring cultural differences, people will see others living in conditions where they are sometimes relying on faith for a clean glass of water, he said. “It’s like the commercials you see for some of the other organizations,” Klikas said. “The difference is you can’t change the channel because you’re there.” Members of Child Initiative International will constantly check on people after they’ve seen something disturbing, he said. In one case, the organization was helping a child who had a hard time speaking and seemed depressed, he said. The doctors and teachers had a hard time figuring out what happened to her

and some speculated she may have been tortured. Many of the children the organization helps are orphans, he said. “A lot of the time when the children come here, there is no accountability for how they got there,” Gilbert said. Klikas said while Child Initiative International seeks to help children, they are not looking to create a situation where people are reliant on them for help. Instead, they want to give people the capacity to help themselves and their community, he said. The organization managed to help one orphan receive a solid education through one of their programs. He earned a scholarship to attend a school system in Africa that is normally reserved for the wealthy. He plans to become a doctor and come back to his community to help them, Klikas said. Gilbert expects the next trip to Uganda, which will last for more than a week, to be a good one with plenty of opportunities to learn and help. “I’m excited for the research we’re doing,” Gilbert said. “We’re helping the children.” Before the organization leaves for Uganda, they will hold a motorcycle ride on July 27 in Cherry Valley to fund the trip. The ride costs $25 for anybody who wants to travel from Cherry Valley to Sycamore on their motorcycle, Klikas said.

Missionary surgeon to speak at FUMC dinner First United Methodist Church in DeKalb invites the public to its annual Missionary Dinner at 5 p.m. Aug. 3. The menu will include sloppy joes, corn on the cob, chips and cookies. Special guest Dr. Elma Jocson, a missionary surgeon from the Philippines, will share her experiences serving at Ganta United Methodist Hospital in Liberia, Africa. She previously served at Tansen Hospital in rural Nepal. Doc Elma, as she calls herself, is no ordinary surgeon, and her stories of her life in Liberia and the people she has served there are as fascinating as they are enlightening. Doc Elma first connected with the DeKalb church through Ellen

Piper, a member of United Methodist Women. In 2006, the leader of Circle 2 passed around a card to each member with the name of a missionary to contact and introduce themselves. Two members received responses back. Piper, who had joined only two months previously, was unaware of what missionary work involved and had hoped her designated contact would ignore the introductory email she had sent. To Piper’s initial disappointment, Doc Elma responded immediately, and because Piper’s first career was a nurse, she was curious, and nervous, about contacting the doctor. Since that day the two have communicated and

connected on a personal, as well as professional level. Doc Elma sends newsletters that have been shared with the DeKalb church circle. The doctor often describes cases and outcomes of her varied surgeries. Danger is ever present in Liberia, both in the country itself and because of limited health care. “My faith is the only thing that sustains me here,” Doc Elma wrote.“Wednesday Chapel service is when people give their testimonies. It’s very common to hear Liberians thanking God for being ‘able to see this day’ or ‘to be counted among the living.’ After years of civil conflict and the ever present threat of diseases, Liberians are often heard to say, ‘It’s not easy-oh!’

It is true, life here is not easy.” Tickets for the event cost $10 each, or bring the family for $25. All proceeds will be used to support mission work. Tickets can be purchased at the door the night of the event, and pre-purchases are always welcome. They will be available at the church office at 321 Oak St. during regular office hours and at the church at fellowship time on July 21 and 28. Everyone is welcome. Information about the church including worship times can be found by calling the church at 815 756-6301, on their website at www. firstumc.net or their Facebook page at First United Church of DeKalb.

ADVICE & PUZZLES

Daily Chronicle / Daily-Chronicle.com

Love for kids keeps man in bad relationship Dear Abby: I have been living with my girlfriend, “Robin,” for four years. She has children from a previous marriage, and their father is fairly active in their lives. I jumped in and have taken the kids to activities, helped with homework and I pay the majority of the bills. I dearly love the children. My problem is I no longer love their mother. Robin and I are like roommates who share a bed. There is no passion, no joy together and no partnership. I spend my time with the kids or alone. She’s with them at different activities or busy on her computer. When I suggest ways we could bond together, she says, “I’m too tired,” or “I don’t want to do that,” or “This is the way it is!” I have stayed this long only for the kids, but I’m unhappy to the point of aching. I

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips feel guilty about leaving and the strain it will put on the kids. Is there a way to leave a situation like this? Am I a bad man for wanting out and possibly leaving the children to a tougher life? – Unhappy in South Carolina Dear Unhappy: Because the woman you’re living with shows no interest in improving the quality of the relationship, wanting to leave does not make you a bad person. You will have to accept that because the children depend upon you for certain things they will be affected by your departure. It’s too bad you didn’t consider that before moving in with someone who had a family.

Try to make the breakup as civil as possible. Before you go, talk to each of the children individually. Make it clear that they are not the reason the relationship is ending and that you will always care about them. That way, they won’t think they did something bad and blame themselves. Dear Abby: My only daughter, “Claire,” who is 25, has always had a strong work ethic. Her boyfriend “Charles” has never held a job, either during college or in the year and a half he has been out of school. They were living with his parents until Claire accepted a one-year job overseas. Charles followed. Claire’s salary isn’t great, so I know she has little money saved, but she wants to start planning her wedding when they return. Should I stick with tradition and pay for it

or listen to my head, which is telling me I don’t want to see her marry Charles until he has held a full-time job for at least a year? I think she can do better, but I suppose she could also do worse. They do seem to love each other. – Hesitant Mother Dear Mother: Listen to your head. When Claire returns, let her know that she and her fiance will be paying for the wedding. It will be an introduction to the financial realities she and her husband will encounter after their marriage. Later on, when they’re considering buying a home, you can give them the money that might have been spent on the wedding as part of their down payment – if they are still together. Dear Abby: How do I break up with friends who I love but have nothing in common with anymore? I’m married with a

child, but as a new business owner, I don’t have time to meet their needs. How do you tell people in a loving way that you have appreciated their friendship in the past, but it’s over? We have grown apart. – Don’t Have The Time Dear Don’t: Is it possible that your feelings are temporary, and that you are simply overwhelmed by the demands of your new business? If so, I’d hate to see you end friendships with people you love. Relationships don’t always remain at the same level or have the same intensity. Rather than cut the people off entirely, explain that you can’t be as available because you have a new business and don’t have the time. It would be kinder.

Hearing your heartbeat? It’s not imagination Dear Dr. K: I can hear my heartbeat in my left ear. Should I be worried that I might lose my hearing? Dear Reader: A few years ago a patient of mine asked me the same question. What he was worried about was not that he might have an ear condition which could take away his hearing – he was worried that he might be going crazy! I told him that if all he heard was his heart, he wasn’t crazy. On the other hand, if he heard the voice of Abraham Lincoln whispering in his ear, he might have something to worry about. A condition called tinnitus causes unusual sounds in the ears: high-pitched hisses, lower-pitched buzzing sounds,

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff clicking. This is a remarkably common problem; an estimated 50 million people in the United States have it to some degree. I consulted with my colleague Dr. David Vernick, assistant clinical professor of otology and laryngology at Harvard Medical School. We agreed that what you describe sounds like what’s called “pulsatile tinnitus.” This is a rhythmic thumping or whooshing only you can hear, often in time with your heartbeat.

The most common causes of pulsatile tinnitus include: • Conductive hearing loss. This type of hearing loss intensifies internal head noises – sounds such as breathing, chewing, and blood flowing through the ear. Conductive hearing loss makes it easier to hear blood flowing through two large blood vessels that travel near to each ear. These are the carotid artery and the jugular vein, which circulate blood to and from the brain. (I’ve put an illustration of these blood vessels, and where they sit in relation to your middle and inner ear, on my website.) • Carotid artery disease. The accumulation of fatty buildup (plaque) inside the

carotid arteries can create turbulent blood flow. This can cause a pulsating sound. • High blood pressure. When blood pressure is high, blood flow through the carotid artery is more likely to be turbulent. That turbulence generates the pulsatile tinnitus. • Blood vessel disorders. Many blood vessel disorders can cause pulsatile tinnitus. These include an abnormal connection between an artery and vein, twisted arteries, or a benign blood vessel tumor behind the eardrum. • Ear muscle disorders. Tiny little muscles that attach to the bones inside the ear can sometimes go into spasms, and this can cause pulsatile tinnitus.

Most of the time, pulsatile tinnitus is nothing to worry about. If it doesn’t go away on its own or becomes really bothersome, talk to your doctor. Your doctor will likely examine your ears and listen to the blood flow through the arteries in your neck. He or she will listen for an unusual sound that blood makes when it rushes past an obstruction. If your doctor hears this sound, you’ll likely need a test to look for a narrowing or malformation in your carotid artery – and possibly surgery to correct the problem. Otherwise, you may need a hearing test or other additional testing.

Sleeping in a cool room does not cause colds Dr. Wallace: I enjoy sleeping with my bedroom window open even in the dead of winter. My grandmother, who recently moved in with us, says that sleeping with an open window when the temperature is low will cause a person to get a lot of unwanted colds. I’ve been sleeping with an open window for a long time, and I do not get a lot of colds. Please tell grandmother you can’t catch cold from sleeping in a cool room. – Sheila, Lansing, Mich. Grandmother: Sheila is cor-

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace rect! Many people think that colds are caused by cold or damp weather, but in reality, colds are usually spread by simple hand-to-hand contact with another human being or such objects as doorknobs and public telephones.

TODAY – You could be unusually lucky in the year ahead concerning matters involving friends. Interestingly, the same isn’t likely to be true regarding endeavors with people whom you don’t know very well. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – If there is an important objective you’ve been unable to achieve, it might be time to discard your current methods and try something different. Be imaginative. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Should you meet someone who seems to have a few unappealing characteristics, strive to be open-minded. You could be misjudging a potentially good friend. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Chance could play an important role in your affairs, especially concerning a financially important matter. Be alert for some unusual opportunities. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – It could prove exceptionally helpful to discuss some potential plans with a person whom you respect and trust. He or she could offer some suggestions that you would otherwise have missed. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – If you have a special job that needs doing, be sure the person or firm you select has a good reputation or can supply you with references. If these aren’t forthcoming, keep looking. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – You would be better off seeking business help from a social contact than you would be hiring someone. Check around to see who knows the kind of person you need. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – You might not fulfill the day’s expectations until the last minute, so don’t be too quick to give up on your endeavors. Better late than never. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – A friend who is quite different from your usual pals might come to you with a unique proposal. Even if it sounds a big goofy at first, hear him or her out. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Opportunities might be of a fleeting nature, especially ones that relate to your business. Indifference or procrastination could deprive you of success. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – As long as you know what you’re doing, go ahead and improvise a little. The important thing is that you do what needs to be done. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – There is a strong chance that you could become involved in an unconventional endeavor. Don’t be afraid to let your hair down – there’s a lot to be gained here. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Circumstances could place you into a partnership arrangement with a person who is usually operating in opposition to you. Today, you’ll be supportive of

unknowingly pass the cold “germs” to others. Dr. Wallace: I’m writing in response to the teen who was upset that her parents wouldn’t allow the maid to clean her room. She was mad because her parents didn’t take into consideration her busy schedule of study and after-school activities. Poor baby! I want to thank you for telling her to take responsibility and clean her own room. This teen is not the only one who has a busy schedule. I’m a freshman

in high school and have a higher-than 4.0 grade point average. I’m in student government, play in the pep band every Tuesday and Thursday and stay at school for the game afterwards. I’m in a fall and spring sport, teach Sunday School, attend a church youth group, and I’m on several church committees. With all these activities, I still manage to clean my room and to help in other household chores. I also have time for my friends and family because I’m organized

and manage my time well. It is something the upset teen should learn to do. – Nameless, Rochester, Minn. Nameless: I received many letters from teens who had extremely busy school schedules, yet found time to do their share of household chores. I have chosen you to represent the teens who “get it done.” They all had one thing in common – being organized. That’s clearly the key to success.

8CROSSWORD

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Deduce the danger to your contract Confucius, whose real name was Kong Qiu, said, “He who learns but does not think is lost. He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger.” Bridge players who do not think lose a lot of contracts unnecessarily. Bridge players who think but do not wonder about what might go wrong will also lose some contracts. In today’s deal, South is in six spades. How should he play after West leads the heart queen around to declarer’s ace? Would South’s best play be different if dummy had only K-5-4 of spades? I strongly approve of North’s three-club positive response, showing eight-plus points and five or more clubs. (When responder, holding a strong hand, begins with two diamonds waiting, he either never shows his full strength or is forced to take control.) On the third round, after North raised spades, South used the Grand Slam Force, asking partner to bid seven with two of the top three spade honors. (Nowadays, this convention has almost died out because Roman Key-Card Blackwood uncovers the top trump honors.) South can afford only one trump loser. If the spades are 3-2, there are no problems. He needs to worry about 4-1 and 5-0. The correct play is a low spade to dummy’s eight. When it loses, South wins the next trick and leads a spade to the king, here getting home. He will be successful more than 94 percent of the time. If dummy has only K-5-4, South should start with dummy’s king, then play low to his 10. His chance has shrunk a tad, to nearly 90 percent.

8ASTROGRAPH By BERNICE BEDE OSOL Newspaper Enterprise Association

TODAY – Because your ambitions and talents are likely to blend together very nicely over time, conditions in the coming months look to be quite hopeful. You could do exceptionally well in a number of areas in your life. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – A project that has been mismanaged could come under your direct control. You have the talent and the know-how to succeed where others have failed. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – You’re likely to do unusually well if you are more concerned with the big picture than the little details. Laying a strong foundation will pay off. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – There are strong indications that you’ll start cultivating an extremely important relationship. It won’t be established overnight, but it will eventually become one of your major alliances. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – New heights can be achieved if you have the motivation and desire to reach for the stars. Tenacious effort will be required, but all your striving will be worth it in the long run. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Many of your associates will appreciate the value of your ideas and suggestions, giving them more merit than even you do. Graciously accept their sincere appreciation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Someone with whom you enjoyed success in the past will want to team up with you again. It could turn out to be an even a bigger coup than the first time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – You’ll have the gift of arousing great interest in others regarding the things you’re passionate about. To the amazement of everybody, you’ll even excite a negative pal. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – You are presently in a promising financial cycle where increased earnings are a strong possibility. However, don’t think that you won’t have to work hard for what you’ll get. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – A rather unique opportunity is likely to be presented to you by an old friend. It might not look like much on the surface, but it will develop greater depth down the line. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – You’re likely to be much more successful using traditional methods than you would be trying something unorthodox or new. Things that worked well before will do so again. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Certain information you get from one party could be of great value to another. If you bring these two divergent factors together, everyone could profit, including you. GEMINI (May 21-Jne 20) – Developments that could improve the affairs of both yourself and your colleagues are brewing. Look for signals that things are happening, so you can get on top of matters posthaste.

Family dog plays favorites with hand that feeds Dear Abby: My family has had our dog “Pouncer” for 10 years. He was originally bought to be a “family” dog, but I am the one who feeds and takes care of him. Because of that he sleeps with me and licks and obeys only me. When I say Pouncer is my dog, the rest of my family chews me out and insists he is the family’s dog, not mine. Don’t you think I have the right to call him my dog? – Willie in West Virginia Dear Willie: I think this is less a question about ownership than it is about tact. Because you are the one who feeds and takes care of Pouncer, and he sleeps with you and obeys only you – in that sense, he IS your dog. But unless you are the only one paying for his food and veterinary bills and the roof over his head, Pouncer is also the family’s dog. Remember that and you’ll get chewed out less often. Dear Abby: My wife and I have been married more than 20 years. Her best friend from childhood, “Jill,” and her husband, “Jack,” are two of our closest friends. On a recent visit to their home in another state, Jack made a pass at my wife. He said he’d always had a crush on her and asked her to go to

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips

Dear Abby: Am I being selfish? My next-door neighbor (who is a friend) knew we had bought an expensive vacuum cleaner last year. She asked if she could try it out on her carpet and I agreed, thinking it would be a one-time favor. I should add that she watches our house and our cat when we’re traveling, and we do likewise for her. She recently asked if she could borrow it again, and I didn’t know what to say. I didn’t want to let her, so I made an excuse that I needed to buy more vacuum bags. I suspect that she “borrowed” it again without my permission two months ago while we were away because the cord wasn’t like I had left it. How can I tactfully handle this situation? She’s on a tight budget and can’t afford to buy this particular vacuum herself. – Am I Selfish? Dear Am I Selfish?: Rather than label you selfish, I’d prefer to call you “stuck.” You allowed your friend to use the vacuum once and have given her free run of your home in your absence. Because she has used the vacuum again without your permission, she is likely to do it again. If you’re afraid of the “ick” factor of having “her” dust in your house, you’ll have to tell her plainly that you don’t

want her to use the vacuum and probably find another house sitter. Or, knowing she’s short of money, you might let her use the vacuum but suggest that when she uses one of your bags she buy some of her own and replace the one she used with a fresh one. Dear Abby: I am a 19-yearold woman who recently got over a bout of compulsive hair-pulling that left the top of my head bald. The hair hasn’t completely grown back yet, so I refuse to go anywhere without a hat. When I’m out in public, people often tell me it’s rude to wear a hat indoors. While I understand this, my hair is a sensitive subject that reduces me to tears. What can I say to people when they continue to badger me? – Covered Up in Georgia Dear Covered Up: Point out that it is even MORE rude to criticize someone’s attire when the person may have a legitimate reason for dressing that way. You should also talk with a hairstylist about buying an inexpensive hairpiece to wear until your hair grows back. That may curtail some of the unsolicited comments you’re receiving.

Eye drops, artificial tears can treat mild keratitis Dear Dr. K: I have keratitis, for which my doctor has prescribed antibiotic eye drops. How did I get this? How can I avoid it in the future? Dear Reader: Keratitis is an inflammation of the cornea, the clear dome at the front of the eye that covers the pupil and iris (the colored ring around the pupil). Keratitis can cause red eye, the sensation of something in your eye, pain, light sensitivity, watery eye, blurred vision and difficulty keeping your eyelids open. Keratitis typically results from infection or injury. Infectious keratitis, typically caused by a bacterial or viral infection, usually begins in the outer layer of the cornea, but it can go deeper into the

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff cornea. If it does go deeper, it can cause permanent injury to the cornea, and that can make your vision worse. Infectious keratitis can also occur after an injury to the cornea. The injury can weaken the defenses that protect your eye against infection. An injury can inflame the cornea even if an infection never sets in. Injury may be caused by scratching your eye or wearing poorly fitting contact lenses. Some autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and Sjo-

gren’s syndrome, also cause keratitis. Treatment depends upon the cause. If there is only mild injury to the cornea, no treatment is necessary. Since your doctor has prescribed antibiotic eye drops, you probably have keratitis caused by a bacterial infection. For more severe bacterial infections, doctors sometimes also prescribe oral antibiotics. If keratitis is caused by a virus, you would need antiviral eye drops, an antiviral oral medication, or both. Artificial tears usually are effective for keratitis related to dry eyes. And corticosteroid eye drops, which ease inflammation, are often prescribed for keratitis caused

by an autoimmune disease. Treating the underlying disease also helps. To prevent keratitis: • Avoid eye injury by wearing sunglasses and appropriate eye gear as needed. • If you have a cold sore, do not put your fingers to your eyes. The same virus that causes cold sores can cause keratitis. • If you use contact lenses, wear and care for them properly. Stop wearing them if you suspect you are developing an eye infection. • Use moisturizing eye drops. “Red eye” is a pretty common problem. Usually it’s mild, people don’t call their doctor, and it goes away. However, there are other eye

conditions besides keratitis that can cause red eyes, and some of them need urgent medical attention. A few symptoms, in particular, raise “red flags.” When you have them, along with a red eye, you should call your doctor immediately. They include difficulty seeing things clearly (near or far), pain in the eye, a bad headache located in and around the eye, and nausea or vomiting. These symptoms can indicate that you have a condition more serious than keratitis, such as acute glaucoma or uveitis, and you need immediate evaluation and treatment.
