Mental Health Board looks to rein in cost of attorney By KEVIN P. CRAVER


Two proposals that the embattled McHenry County Mental Health Board will vote on Tuesday take aim at reining in the legal fees it pays. And under one of the proposals, board attorney Francis Gosser might find himself replaced as its legal counsel. The board first will vote on a measure to forbid an attorney from billing for any service that is not approved in writing by both interim Executive Director Todd Schroll and new board President Robert Routzahn. It then will vote to direct Schroll to draft a request for proposals so it can bid competitively for legal services. The board late last year raised Gosser’s hourly rate to $250. “I think that would be a nice step, to make sure we’re not over-relying or overusing [counsel] for things I think are trivial,” Routzahn said.


At issue About $180,000 of the $290,000 the McHenry County Mental Health Board spent on legal fees last fiscal year went to board attorney Francis Gosser. The $290,000 for legal expenses was almost six times the $50,000 the board budgeted.

Enrollment in the Health Insurance Marketplace, or the Exchange, will open Oct. 1 as a centralized location for small businesses, individuals and families to shop for health insurance. In Illinois, there will be four “metal” levels of coverage – platinum, gold, silver and bronze – with dozens of insurance options offered at every level.

Will offer coverage options for families, small businesses By JEFF ENGELHARDT


hopping for health insurance soon will be as convenient as choosing between Frosted Flakes and Cheerios at a grocery store. But expect to have to sift through much more information than sugar and calorie

content to figure out which one is best for you. In the largest step toward fully implementing the Affordable Care Act, Illinois will open its Health Insurance Marketplace, often referred to as the Exchange, on Oct. 1. The Exchange is a website that will serve as a central location for residents and

small businesses to compare and choose from dozens of insurance plans. Six providers – including well-known companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield – have proposed 165 plans that are awaiting approval. Each plan will be categorized in one of four “metal” levels – bronze, silver, gold

and platinum – with bronze the lowest and platinum the highest in terms of coverage, breadth, depth and services. Mike Claffey, spokesman for the health care division in Gov. Pat Quinn’s office, said specific prices for plans would be made public in September

Affordable Affordable Care Act Act

Inaugural goals meet with reality By JULIE PACE The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Six months ago, President Barack Obama stood on the Capitol steps and offered a soaring liberal vision for his second term. Buoyed by re-election, he said the nation must pursue without delay steps to protect children from gun violence, tackle climate change and overhaul fractured immigration laws. But the intervening months have showcased the political limits of Obama’s ambitions. The result has been an uneven and sometimes disjointed first half of what arguably could be the most important year of the remainder of his presidency.

See OBAMA, page A10




In President Barack Obama’s second term, victories have been scarce, with his gun control measures vanquished, slim prospects for a deficit reduction deal and an uncertain future for an immigration overhaul.

Comic creations cross borders SAN DIEGO – There’s no such thing as just a comic book hero anymore. From bigscreen films and small-screen animation to books, clothes and makeup, the hero business is big business. Two decades ago, the only place to find the X-Men was in the pages of comics and on Saturday morning cartoons. Now, they, and others, like Superman, Batman and the zombies from “The Walking Dead” are cultural juggernauts, crossing over into everything. And nowhere is that more evident than at Comic-Con International. Once just 300 or so attendees in a hotel, the event now hosts more than 100,000 visitors over four days and is a top destination for film and television companies, not to mention marketers of apparel and other products, too. Attendees can wear Avengers perfume while walking in Converse high-tops that have the Joker or Batman on the sides. They’re buying glass tumblers with Marvel superheroes on them, T-shirts that bear the logo of Green Lantern, and hats with The Flash lightning bolt on the front. It’s no surprise, either, said Rob Salkowitz, a consultant and author of “Comic-Con and the Business of Pop Culture.” Comics have been a foundation of entertainment for decades, but since the 1990s, the advent of better technology in film and TV has seen what was once a staple of four-color comics transform into visual spectacles. “Superheroes were created because it was a good fit for

Bersain Gutierrez of Mexico City poses as Superman on the convention floor during the Preview Night event on Wednesday at the 2013 Comic-Con International Convention in San Diego, Calif. the print technology in the 1930s and 1940s,” Salkowitz said. “What happened in the late 1990s is the technology for video games and movies finally got good enough to realize the imagery of comic books in a satisfying way.” To wit, Bruce Banner’s eye-popping transformation into the Incredible Hulk is easy to do, and realistic. Now, there’s a demand for content to fill stories of all stripes. Robert Kirkman’s “The Walking Dead” was a blackand-white comic drawing rave reviews. Now it’s a top-rated TV show commanding millions of viewers, helping boost sales of collected editions of the graphic novels and driving interest in hiring comic book scribes for television. Brian Michael Bendis, who

writes for Marvel Entertainment, had a pilot shot for his “Powers” series that he does with Michael Avon Oeming. Kirkman is also going into television again with “Clone,” a comic series created and written by David Schulner for his Skybound imprint. On Saturday, it was announced that “Clone” had landed a development deal with NBCU. Schulner credited Kirkman for guidance in doing that, too. “I knew if I went off the rails too badly, Robert would be there to put me back on track. Now I’ve been writing the comic for two years – issue No. 9 comes out next week – and I just finished writing issue 15, so to be able to turn it into a television show is just icing on the cake. And it’s not just heroes, ei-

ther. Archie Comics’ Sabrina was turned into the popular sitcom “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” starring Melissa Joan Hart. It ran for seven seasons. Salkowitz said comics have “70 years of backstory” and an “emotional resonance” on nearly everyone. “It becomes a very easy thing for Hollywood and video game manufacturers to plug right in to this existing mythology,” he said. “They don’t have to invent it all themselves. They don’t have to jumpstart universes.” It boils down to loyal, enthusiastic fans, and the comic book companies have that. “Every brand wants raving fans, they don’t want consumers. They want fans, people who are participating,” Salkowitz said. “Look around. Comics have fans.”

Youths converge on Rio to see pope


The ASSOCIATED PRESS BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Thousands of young Roman Catholics from around the Americas are converging on Rio de Janeiro, taking dayslong bus trips or expensive plane flights that were paid for by baking cookies and holding garage sales, running raffles and bingo tournaments and even begging for coins in public plazas. Some of the poorest traveled from so-called “misery villages” in Argentina’s capital, thanks to donations from the Buenos Aires archdiocese. Their agenda at World Youth Day includes meeting with other disadvantaged youngsters in Manguinhos, a favela Pope Francis plans to visit, and sharing stories about Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the subway-riding Argentine Jesuit they now affectionately call their “slum pope.” Road trips can be fun, but many have been expressing more profound emotions, excited by the changes they see in the church since Francis was elected in March. His first months as pope have already

Now I have more faith than ever, very high. I have my heart completely with God and no one can take me away from there,” said Valentina

Godoy, who traveled from Santiago, Chile, and shared her feelings from Brazil on a video her local church group posted on YouTube. Francis joked when he first emerged on the balcony over St. Peters Square that the cardinals had chosen a pope “from the end of the world.” But for many Catholics on this side of the Atlantic, he’s not only the first Latin American pope. With his history of

community outreach, many younger Catholics are saying that he’s the first pope they can relate to in a more personal way. “We were concerned after Benedict resigned, but when a Latin American pope emerged, so close to young people, it really changed the situation and our numbers grew. A little while ago we thought that there would be 5,000 Chileans and now we see that 9,100 of us are going, more than double what we expected,” said Alonso Molina, the 21-year-old coordinator of a group visiting from Chile’s Vicarate of Youthful Hope. Brazil has more Catholics than any other country in the world and its church has struggled to compete with Latin America’s vigorous evangelical Christian movements, so it’s a logical destination. And while many Argentines were disappointed that Francis didn’t choose his native Argentina for his first papal trip outside Italy, they were making the best of it: More than 30,000 Argentines were making the pilgrimage, the largest foreign delegation. @nwherald

Few towns pass assault weapons bans Deadline for any action was Friday

Assault-style weapons and handguns are seen for sale Jan. 16 at Capitol City Arms Supply in Springfield. The deadline for local governments in Illinois to enact assault weapons ordinances was Friday. Fewer than 20 communities passed ordinances either banning assault weapons or imposing regulations on how they can be stored and transported.

By DON BABWIN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Faced with a new state law that gave them until Friday to ban or restrict assault weapons, the vast majority of villages, towns and cities in Illinois did nothing but let the deadline come and go. On Friday, Winnetka became one of the last communities to get something on the books when it approved an ordinance that, while not banning assault weapons, regulates how they are transported and stored. It joined the fewer than 20 municipalities that rushed to enact a restriction within 10 days allowed by the state’s new concealed-carry gun legislation. That’s out of 1,300 municipalities around the state. Illinois became the last state in the nation to make it legal for people to carry concealed weapons in public July 9 when state lawmakers overrode Gov. Pat Quinn’s attempt to toughen a bill they had passed earlier. Included in that bill was the provision giving communities until Friday to enact any assault weapons ordinances. If they didn’t act, they forfeited their right to do so in the future. According to the Illinois State Rifle Association, at least 16 municipalities – including Chicago – enacted ordinances banning or regu-

lating assault weapons. Every one of them was in the Chicago metropolitan area. Around 30 other municipalities took up the issue but voted down the bans. The list of towns that took action includes places such as Evanston, Highland Park, Hazel Crest and Calumet Park. Kate Williamson, program director of the Illinois Council Against Handgun Vi-

olence, said she would have liked to see more action, but that she suspects many communities failed to do anything out of concern that an assault weapons ordinance would trigger an expensive legal battle. “Smaller municipalities might be timid to take that kind of action just because of how the NRA might go after them,” she said. Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association, said Williamson may be onto something. “These villages and cities could have expensive ordinances on the books,” he said. But Pearson said he thinks

communities did not enact assault weapons ordinances for an even simpler reason. “People don’t really like these [gun restrictions],” he contended. “Even where they had meetings, no one was speaking up in favor of bans.” In some of those communities that did take action, officials made no secret they were motivated in large part by their desire to buy themselves time. A number said they wanted to pass what have been called “place holder” ordinances to preserve the legal right to revisit the issue when and if they want. “Our ordinance was discussed in that context [and] we only had a window of a

10-day period to consider it,” said Rob Bahan, Winnetka’s village manager. Earlier this month, the suburb of Skokie passed a similar ordinance for a similar reason, pending more clarity on the definition of an assault weapon. “Our approach was to define an assault weapon narrowly just to have it in place so we can amend it or repeal it once the legal dust settles,” said Michael Lorge, Skokie’s corporation counsel. “We can amend it at any time and our expectation is at some point the courts or another level of government will define assault weapons and we will amend to that definition.”

8STATE BRIEFS 6-year-old rescued from sand dune is improving CHICAGO – Doctors say the 6-year-old Illinois boy rescued after spending hours buried beneath an Indiana sand dune is improving at a Chicago hospital. Dr. Rachel Wolfson of Comer Children’s Hospital said Nathan Woessner’s condition has been upgraded from serious to good. The Sterling boy was buried for more than three hours at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore before rescuers pulled him from 11 feet of sand July 12. He was limp and cold, but began breathing on his way to the hospital. Doctors have said the child is expected to make a full neurological recovery.

Durbin to hold hearing on ‘stand your ground’ laws CHICAGO – U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin says he will hold a hearing on so-called “stand your ground” laws. About 30 states have some form of the law, which gives a person the right to use deadly force to protect themselves if they feel their life is in danger. A Florida version played a role in the trial of George Zimmerman, who was acquitted in the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin. Durbin said he’ll hold the hearing in Washington in September. He said the hearing will explore the influence of the gun lobby in creating the laws and how “stand your ground” has changed the legal definition of self-defense.

NCAA rejects claims in lawsuit The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Rejecting claims made in a lawsuit concerning concussions, the NCAA said Saturday it has taken steps to protect student-athletes from head injuries and that player safety is among the college sports association’s core principles. Attorneys suing the NCAA over its handling of head injuries asked a federal judge Friday to let them expand the lawsuit to include thousands of plaintiffs nationwide. The motion seeking class-action status was filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago, where the original lawsuit was filed in 2011 on behalf of former Eastern Illinois football player Adrian Arrington and several other former athletes. “Student-athlete safety is one of the NCAA’s foundational principles,” said spokeswoman Stacey Osburn. “The NCAA has been at the forefront of safety issues throughout its existence.” She said the association has addressed the issue of head injuries through a combination of playing rules, equipment requirements and medical practices. The NCAA does not believe the legal action is appropriate, Osburn said. Concussions have become a major concern in sports in recent years. The NFL, NHL

and college football, among others, have implemented stricter rules on hits to the head and player safety. The NFL is involved in a lawsuit involving more than 4,000 former players seeking millions of dollars for problems they blame on head injuries suffered during their careers. Attached to the class-action request from those suing the NCAA is a report for the plaintiffs by a leading authority on concussions, Robert Cantu, who cites an internal NCAA survey from 2010. He said the NCAA found that nearly half of the college trainers who responded indicated they put athletes showing signs of a concussion back into the same game. “It is well settled in the scientific community that an athlete must never be returned to play on the same day after a concussion diagnosis,” said Cantu, who is medical director of the National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury Research in Chapel Hill, N.C. The plaintiffs say the NCAA was lax in establishing a clear policy about dealing with concussions, leaving key decisions to individual schools or leagues. Arrington contends he suffered “numerous and repeated concussions” at Eastern Illinois. He is seeking unspecified monetary damages and changes in policy.

8NATION BRIEFS Woman’s death on roller coaster probed ARLINGTON, Texas – A woman who died Friday while riding a roller coaster at a amusement park in North Texas fell from the ride, an Arlington police sergeant said Saturday. Sgt. Christopher Cook said police believe the woman fell at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, and there appears to have been no foul play. Park spokeswoman Sharon Parker confirmed that a woman died while riding the Texas Giant – dubbed the tallest steel-hybrid coaster in the world – but did not specify how. Some witnesses said the woman who died wasn’t properly secured.

Tornado hits Ohio college; no one hurt PEPPER PIKE, Ohio – A tornado of 110 mph winds hit Ursuline College in northeast Ohio early Saturday morning, collapsing a wall of the school’s athletic center and damaging other buildings but causing no injuries, officials said. The EF1 twister hit about 3:35 a.m. northwest of the college and continued across part of the campus, meteorologist William Comeaux of the National Weather Service in Cleveland said. It reached 100-200 yards wide and traveled 1.3 miles. Only a few students were on campus at the time and they were close to the athletic center that was hardest hit, a college spokeswoman said.

A year after attack, Colo. seeks healing The ASSOCIATED PRESS AURORA, Colo. – Some recited the names of the dead. Some did good deeds for their neighbors. Some practiced yoga, walked through nature or simply talked. And two got married. Coloradans embraced ways to heal Saturday as they marked the anniversary of the Aurora movie theater massacre with a city-sponsored “Day of Remembrance.” It was one year ago that a gunman opened fire into a packed midnight screening of the Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises.” The rampage lasted less than two minutes but left deep wounds that still ache in Aurora, Colorado’s third-largest city, which spreads out across the rolling plains on Denver’s eastern side. Twelve people died, including a 6-year-old girl. Among those killed was Crystal Lake native John Larimer, a Navy petty officer 3rd class who was stationed at Buckley Air Force Base in Colorado. Seventy people were hurt, some of them paralyzed. Countless others inside the theater and out bear the invisible wounds of emotional trauma. Parents, siblings and survivors of those slain attended a morning ceremony of prayer, song and remembrance outside Aurora’s city hall. Several hundred people – including police, fire personnel and members of Colorado’s congressional delegation – bowed their heads as the names of the dead were read.

Coloradans marked the anniversary of the Aurora movie theater massacre with a city-sponsored “Day of Remembrance.” A small bell tolled after each. The Hinkley High School choir sang “Amazing Grace.” “One year ago, the peace of our community was shattered,” Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan said. “We are still seeking justice.” “It is important for us to remember that one senseless act does not, cannot and will not define us as a community,” Hogan added. “This is a story of resilience, not just of Aurora but of humankind.”

Thunderstorm threat a wild card for wildfire IDYLLWILD, Calif. – Firefighters got little help from Mother Nature on Saturday as much-needed rainfall from expected thunderstorms didn’t materialize for a huge wildfire burning in the Southern California mountains near Palm Springs. Fire officials were hopeful the storms, which can also bring wind, lightning and other volatile conditions, would douse some of the flames, but they said there hadn’t been any significant rainfall.

Gov. John Hickenlooper told the crowd that many people still struggle with unanswered questions. “I know I do,” Hickenlooper said. Dr. Camilla Sasson, an emergency room physician at the University of Colorado, struggled through tears as she recounted the efforts to save lives. “It is absolutely a miracle that 58 people survived that night,” she said.

Charges filed in case of men held in home HOUSTON – A 31-year-old man was charged Saturday in connection with the discovery of four malnourished men being held against their will in a dungeonlike Houston home. Walter Renard Jones faces two counts of injury to the elderly. He is being held without bond in the Harris County Jail and set to appear in court Monday. Houston Police Department spokeswoman Jodi Silva said it’s possible additional charges will be filed as the investigation continues. The exact charges are decided by the district attorney’s office.

Rallies seek ‘Justice for Trayvon’ The ASSOCIATED PRESS ATLANTA – One week after a jury found George Zimmerman not guilty in the death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin, people gathered nationwide for rallies to press for federal civil rights charges against the former neighborhood watch leader and call for changes to the nation’s self-defense laws. The Florida case has become a flashpoint in converging national debates over self-defense, guns and race relations. Zimmerman, who successfully claimed that he was protecting himself when he shot Martin, identifies as Hispanic. Martin was black.

For some attendees, particularly those who are black, the rallies seemed as much about those larger issues as about the verdict. “It’s personal,” said Chris Donegan of Cincinnati, whose 11-year-old son wore a hoodie to the rally, as Martin did the night he died. “Anybody who is black with kids, Trayvon Martin became our son.” The Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network organized the “Justice for Trayvon” rallies and vigils outside federal buildings in at least 101 cities: from New York and Los Angeles to Wichita, Kan., and Atlanta, where people stood in the rain at the bases of two federal buildings, with

traffic blocked on surrounding downtown streets. Chants rang out across the rallies. “Justice! Justice! Justice! ... Now! Now! Now!” “‘We won’t forget.” “No justice! No peace!” Many also sang hymns, prayed and held hands. In New York, hundreds of people – including Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton – gathered in the heat. Fulton told the crowd she was determined to fight for societal and legal changes to ensure that black youths are no longer viewed with suspicion because of their skin color. “I promise you I’m going to work for your children as well,” she told the crowd.

Mourners clutched white roses and, as the ceremony ended, laid them beneath a large wreath bearing the inscription, “In memory of those lost and those whose lives were forever changed.” After the ceremony, residents volunteered for projects – tending a community garden, sorting food bank donations, donating blood. Spiritual and mental health counselors were available, along with art therapy projects and

poetry readings. Eugene Han and Kirstin Davis, both injured in the Aurora shooting, marked the anniversary Saturday afternoon by getting married – a union that turned July 20 into a celebration. Friends who also survived the shooting took part in the ceremony at Village East Baptist Church in Aurora as senior pastor Robert McClendon gave a prayer for the couple and for those still grieving.

Pioneering reporter Thomas dead at 92 The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Covering 10 presidents over five decades, Helen Thomas aged into a legend. She was the only reporter with her name inscribed on a chair in the White House briefing room – her own front-row seat to history. Starting as a copy girl in 1943, when women were considered unfit for serious reporting, Thomas rose to bureau chief. Working at a news service, where writers expect obscurity, she became one of journalism’s most recognized faces. Thomas embraced her role as a Washington institution, doing cameos in movies, giving lectures, writing books about her life until the spotlight landed on inflammatory remarks she made about Israel. The uproar pushed her out of the White House press room at age 89. Thomas, 92, died surrounded by family and friends at her Washington apartment on Saturday, the family said in a statement. A friend, Muriel Dobbin, told The Associated Press that Thomas had been ill for a long time, and in and out of the hospital before coming

home Thursday. Thomas made her name as a bulldog for United Press International in the great wire-service rivalries of old, and as a pioneer for women in journalism. She was persistent to the point of badgering. One White House press secretary described her questioning as “torture” – and he Helen was one of her Thomas fans. In her later years, her refusal to conceal her strong opinions, even when posing questions to a president, and her public hostility toward Israel caused discomfort among colleagues. In 2010, that tendency ended her storied career at the White House. She told a rabbi making a video that Israeli Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and “go home” to Germany, Poland or the United States. The video circulated on the Internet and brought widespread condemnation of Thomas, forcing her to quit her job as a Hearst columnist. Months later, in January 2011, she started a column for a free weekly paper in a Washington suburb.

Mich. governor front, center in Detroit bankruptcy By DAVID EGGERT The Associated Press DETROIT – Seven governors came and went during the decadeslong decay of Michigan’s largest city that culminated with a collapse into financial ruin. It’s the eighth, former business executive and relative political novice Rick Snyder, who is aggressively tying his legacy to the prospects of a Detroit turnaround. When he took office, Snyder pushed for more powers for the state to intervene in distressed cities and schools. After voters repealed the law in November, he ignored critics and signed another one. He also hired the city’s turnaround specialist and, nearly four months later, blessed the request to file for bankruptcy.

For the man with the “one tough nerd” moniker, it’s the latest bold decision in a 2½year stretch that’s remarkable for the sheer breadth and pace at which Snyder has moved. He’s again in the national spotlight just a half-year after making Michigan – the bastion of the auto industry and organized labor – a right-towork state, a move that pollsters say led to a drop in his approval ratings. Although the impact of the bankruptcy filing on Snyder’s 2014 re-election may be difficult to predict, it’s still a legacy definer that’s being watched not only in Michigan but also by Wall Street and elected officials across the country. Snyder, a former venture capitalist and computer company CEO, has no known presidential aspirations.

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder addresses reporters during a news conference Friday in Detroit. A former business executive and relative political novice, Snyder is tying his legacy to the prospects of a Detroit turnaround. “I don’t spend time dwelling on my legacy. I just try to do my job well,” the Republican governor said in an


interview. “That’s relentless positive action. No blame, no credit. Just simply solve the problem.”

Detroit’s bankruptcy could last at least through summer or fall 2014, when Snyder is expected to ask voters for another term. “I deeply respect the citizens of Detroit,” he said. “They along with the other 9 million people in our state hired me to do this job. They’re my customers. This was a tough step, a difficult decision, but it’s the right decision.” The first-term governor, perhaps more than any other state’s chief executive, hasn’t been afraid to confront mounting retiree pension and health care costs hampering state and city budgets. He’s done that mainly by signing laws making public workers pay more of their health costs, ending retiree health care for new hires and enticing teachers to contribute more toward

their future pensions. But the stakes could be higher with the Detroit intervention under Michigan’s emergency manager law. Eric Scorsone, a Michigan State University economist and expert on government finances, said while Snyder helped revise the law to make it one of the toughest in the country, bankruptcy likely was inevitable even under the old law – unless creditors had voluntary agreed to accept far less than what they’re owed. Scorsone said many other U.S. cities have issues similar to Detroit, although not on the same scale. Other states will be watching to see what happens in part because Snyder – not local elected officials – is taking responsibility for improving public safety and other basic needs, he said.

Secrecy a bump in Kerry’s Middle East road By MATTHEW LEE The Associated Press WASHINGTON – When Secretary of State John Kerry bounded up the steps to his converted Air Force 757 in Amman, Jordan, on Friday night, staffers greeted him with applause. He grabbed a bottle of Sam Adams beer and strolled down the aisle to celebrate his most significant achievement yet in his short tenure as America’s top diplomat: winning agreement from the Israelis and Palestinians on a framework for resuming stalled peace talks. It was a necessary breakthrough, for sure, yet a modest one, with the lowest bar for success in a process that merely sets the stage for what comes next: difficult and protracted negotiations aimed at a goal that has eluded suc-

cessive U.S. administrations despite investments of serious time, energy, prestige and money. He has made six frenetic trips to the Middle East in as many months and spent countless hours shuttling from Jordan to Israel and the West Bank to cajole Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas into returning to the table. During his latest visit to the region this past week, Kerry finally had something to toast and back up his oft-stated claim that he was making progress in bringing the two sides back together. Minutes before starting back home, at a hastily arranged event in a VIP lounge at the Amman airport, Kerry announced that his single-minded effort, derided by some in Washington and

High expectations for George P. Bush By WILL WEISSERT The Associated Press FRISCO, Texas – On a recent evening, George P. Bush was telling a packed room of wealthy north Texans how he got his start in politics. It was May 1979 and the then 3-yearold was in a Houston park, clutching a balloon and watching his grandfather, George H.W. Bush, announce his first campaign for president. “It was my first memory,” Bush recalled. “I was wearing a George P. Bush, er, uh, George H.W. Bush for President T-shirt.” Drowned out temporarily by laughter, Bush insisted it wasn’t a Freudian slip. An aide approached a reporter scribbling notes and jokingly commanded: “Stop writing!” The light moment underscores the dilemma of the latest scion of an American political dynasty. How does Bush keep his family’s powerful past from overwhelming his present? How can he ease into his first campaign for elected office amid lofty expectations that he will help save a Republican Party in Texas that’s endangered by the state’s booming Latino population? Bush, 37, says he’s more than just a famous surname. Both his grandfather and uncle were presidents; his father, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, may run for the White House in 2016. George P. Bush is running for state land commissioner, a post unfamiliar to most Texans, because he says it best suits his skills, not because it could launch him to bigger things in the largest Republican-leaning state. “It’s a legacy that I embrace and that I’m not going to run away from,” Bush told The Associated Press in an interview during a recent visit to the affluent Dallas suburb of Frisco. “But certainly, in this campaign, I have to identify myself and talk about my own track record.” That isn’t always easy. People want to know how often he calls assorted relatives for advice and what sleeping at the White House was like. Political observers wonder if the Spanish-speaker who offers a unique blend of Republican royalty and His-

His mother, Columba, is from Mexico. Jeremy Bird, who helped President Barack Obama win re-election last year by using data analysis to tailor voter mobilization to the most promising areas, helped tilt Nevada and Colorado to the Democrats in the 2012 presidential race. Now, Bird and other Obama veterans are leading Battleground Texas, a group that hopes to do the same thing in Texas. “This is something not to be taken lightly. It’s a well-capitalized, well-financed group that’s intent on developing a long-term strategy. That’s problematic,” Bush said. “It’s going to require more for candidates like myself and people from the party to step up their game. Not necessarily change our principles, but change our tactics.” Born in Houston, Bush grew up in Florida, where his father was governor from 1998 until 2007. He earned a law degree from the University of Texas and clerked for a federal judge, then later founded a capital company in Fort Worth. In 2010, he served an eight-month tour in Afghanistan with U.S. Naval Intelligence.

8WORLD BRIEF U.S. drops inert bombs near Great Barrier Reef CANBERRA, Australia – Two U.S. fighter jets have dropped four unarmed bombs in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef Marine Park when a training exercise went wrong. The AV-8B Harrier jets each jettisoned an inert bomb and an unarmed explosive bomb in the marine park off the coast of Queensland state on Tuesday, the U.S. 7th Fleet said Saturday.

The four bombs were dropped in more than 165 feet of water away from coral to minimize possible damage to the reef, the statement said. None exploded. The pilots had intended to drop them on the Townshend Island bombing range but aborted the mission when controllers reported the area was not clear of hazards. The jets were low on fuel and could not land with their bomb load, the navy said.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry (left) arrives Friday for a news conference on Israel-Palestine talks at Queen Alia International Airport. the Mideast as a waste of time, had resulted in a deal “that establishes a basis for resuming direct final status negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis.” He said it was not yet formalized

but called it “a significant and welcome step forward.” Top negotiators for the two sides would come to Washington in the “next week or so,” he said, to begin preliminary direct discussions. Officials

said Kerry would name a new U.S. point person to shepherd the negotiations on a day-today basis. For all the buzz among Kerry aides who spoke excitedly of witnessing history in the making, the airport announcement was unusually subdued and brief. Tired after a week of multiple meetings with Abbas and phone conversations with Netanyahu, and all the while concerned about the health of his ailing wife in Boston, Kerry appeared alone at the podium in front of an unadorned blue cloth screen. There was no pomp. There were no Israeli or Palestinian officials at his side. There were no questions. And there were no details about either the framework or even the end game. Secrecy would be paramount, he said. Neither Kerry

nor his staff would go beyond his statement, even privately. “We are absolutely not going to talk about any of the elements now,” Kerry said. “Any speculation or reports you may read in the media or elsewhere or here in the press are conjecture. They are not based on fact because the people who know the facts are not talking about them.” But hours later, an Israeli official who should know something of the agreement, Intelligence and Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz, went on Israel radio to say that some Palestinian prisoners would be released as part of the plan. Presumably, this violated the vow of silence that Kerry said the parties had made and it wasn’t even done anonymously, as is usually the case. It almost will certainly be the first of many such violations.

Neighbors tire of Egypt sit-in

Crafted Comfort for LifeTM

“Save NOW on a mattress built just for you!”

By MARIAM RIZK The Associated Press CAIRO – After three weeks, some local residents have started to have enough with Islamist supporters of Egypt’s ousted President Mohammed Morsi camped out outside a Cairo mosque in their neighborhood to demand he be restored to office. Residents are complaining that the sit-in camp is blocking the roads leading to their homes, garbage has piled up on side streets and parks have been trashed. Speeches from the stage blare late into the night in the neighborhood around Rabaah al-Adawiya Mosque. At the same time, the complaints have been sucked into Egypt’s bitter polarization over the military’s removal of Morsi on July 3. Anti-Islamist media have taken up the residents’ backlash as evidence the country has turned against the protesters, who vow to continue their street campaign. Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood, in turn, has sought to show it has the backing of its neighbors, announcing that residents have been bringing the camping protesters sweets and food. The protest camp also issued a statement this past week offering nearby residents “24-hour medical, electricity, plumbing or other

This is the third week of the pro-Morsi protesters’ sit-in. services.” Morsi supporters have been gathering in the broad intersection in front of the mosque since just before the giant protests by millions nationwide against the president that led to his ouster began June 30. Now they have settled in for a seemingly permanent presence on the edge of the eastern Cairo district of Nasr City. At least a thousand people camp there in tents overnight and crowds swell at times to tens of thousands for evening rallies. Throughout the day, speakers ranging

from ultraconservative clerics to Brotherhood figures to people from the crowd deliver speeches from the stage to rally the audience. “We thought they were just having a protest for the day ... we assumed they’ll leave after the revolution [Morsi’s fall] but they didn’t and life started becoming a tragedy,” Sarah Ashraf, a 25-year-old resident, told The Associated Press. Constant noise from fireworks and the speeches is one big issue for the residents. Another is the tone of some of the speeches, with hard-liners denouncing their opponents.

Baghdad car bombs, other attacks kill dozens BAGHDAD – A coordinated wave of seven car bombs tore through bustling commercial streets Saturday night in Shiite areas of Baghdad, part of a relentless wave of violence that killed at least 46 inside and outside the capital. The car bombs detonated after the iftar meal that breaks the daily fast of the holy month of Ramadan. Many people head

out to shop or relax in coffee shops in the cooler evenings after fasting ends.

5 convicted in cruise ship sinking deaths in Italy GROSSETO, Italy – Five employees of an Italian cruise company were convicted Saturday of manslaughter in the Costa Concordia shipwreck that killed 32 people, receiving sentences of less than three years that lawyers for victims

and survivors criticized as too lenient. The guilty verdicts for multiple manslaughter and negligence were the first reached in the sinking of the cruise liner carrying more than 4,000 crew and passengers near the Tuscan shore in January 2012. The ship’s captain, the only remaining defendant, was denied a plea bargain and is being tried separately.

Indian boys shout slogans Saturday during a protest in New Delhi, India, against the death of schoolchildren killed by a contaminated midday meal served at a school in Gandamal, India.

Police: Pesticide in Indian kids’ lunch Twenty-three children between the ages of 5 and 12 died from eating the meal and many others fell ill. No arrests have been made in the case. Authorities discovered a container of insecticide in the school’s cooking area next to the vegetable oil and mustard oil, but it wasn’t yet known whether that container was the source, officials have said. India’s midday meal plan is one of the world’s biggest school nutrition programs. State governments can decide on menus and timings of the meals, depending on local conditions and availability of food rations. It is seen as an incentive for poor parents to send their children to school and currently covers some 120 million children across the country.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS PATNA, India – Samples of cooking oil and leftover food taken from an Indian school where 23 children died after eating lunch last week were contaminated with “very toxic” levels of an agricultural pesticide, police said Saturday. Ravindra Kumar, the additional director general of police in the city of Patna, told reporters that forensic tests revealed that the samples contained the pesticide monocrotophos in levels that were “very toxic” for humans. The free midday meal was served to the children Tuesday in Gandamal village in Masrakh block, 50 miles north of Patna, the Bihar state capital.

About $180,000 of the $290,000 spent on legal fees last fiscal year went to Gosser. The $290,000 for legal expenses was almost six times the $50,000 the board budgeted. Critics in recent years have accused the Mental Health Board of becoming a bureaucracy that spends too much of its property tax revenue on administration and overhead that should go directly to agencies working with the mentally ill and developmentally disabled, as the board was created by voter referendum to do. Mental Health Board member Paula Yensen had asked members in April to develop a policy for what legal services are needed, bidding competitively for them and increasing oversight of the billing. Yensen, who holds the County Board’s voting seat on the nine-member Mental Health Board, highlighted 100 payments to Gosser between December 2010 and February 2013, totaling

$83,556, for which she questioned the necessity, such as reviewing meeting packets and agendas, and processing Freedom of Information Act requests. The measure to require dual approval for legal services is a temporary measure through the end of the year until the board develops a concrete set of rules, Routzahn said. “There have been past conversations regarding how to create a protocol, and communicating concerns to legal counsel regarding how we can contain costs,” said Yensen, D-Lake in the Hills. “Instead of people just picking up the phone and calling for legal counsel, there’s some kind of organized channel of communication as to how we pursue such services.” Part of the reason behind the recent high costs was to defend the Mental Health Board against a federal lawsuit filed by one of the agencies receiving board funding. Yensen said the board paid Gosser to provide legal oversight for the insurance company’s attorney – that

decision was made before either Yensen or Routzahn were appointed. The board as of July 1 has paid out $108,504 for legal services this fiscal year, according to its most recent expenditure report, which is more than 50 percent more than the $70,000 it budgeted. The board exceeded its legal budget in March, just four months into the fiscal year, which ends Nov. 30. Gosser’s most recent legal bill, also on Tuesday’s agenda for approval, is $6,625. He billed $3,000 for services rendered in June, and is owed a previous balance of $3,625. The board paid him $9,875 on July 1 to pay down a $13,500 balance, according to the invoice. Gosser could not be reached for comment Friday. Routzahn said he did not know whether Gosser intends to submit a bid to stay on as the board attorney. The bid process likely will be approved next month, with a request for bids to go out in September, according to the board resolution. Five of the Mental Health Board’s nine seats have changed hands since Oc-

tober, and a vacancy for a sixth opened up earlier this month. Four resigned for various reasons, Yensen’s predecessor lost her re-election bid, and the former board president was not reappointed by the County Board. A shake-up of County Board committees after the 2012 redistricting election placed a reform-oriented majority on the committee in charge of recommending Mental Health Board appointees. Criticism of Mental Health Board spending increased in late 2010 when it broke ground on a $3 million expansion to almost quadruple the size of its Crystal Lake headquarters. It further amplified last year when the board spent $1.8 million in a failed effort to save an ailing mental health agency from closing. The board’s former executive director, Sandy Lewis, quit last year to take a university job, shortly after receiving her doctorate, for which taxpayers paid at least $30,000, according to records obtained through a FOIA request.

Sign up by Dec. 15 to be covered Jan. 1 Advisers cite progress • MARKET Continued from page A1 after the federal government reviews and approves the plans state officials recommend at the end of July. “The team has been working extremely hard to get everything in place for an Oct. 1 launch,” Claffey said. “There are a lot of departments working together to help put the pieces in place.” State officials have said they initially expect 500,000 residents to seek insurance when the Exchange opens Oct. 1, and they expect it to increase to 1 million by 2016. State officials have been training community organizations to act as counselors for those needing assistance understanding premiums, deductibles, co-pays and other insurance issues. Quinn announced Wednesday that the state received a $27 million federal grant to disperse to 44 community organizations for the training and outreach that will be needed. The McHenry County Department of Health received $500,000 from the grant. “We know that many of those of who are eligible for subsidized coverage through the ACA have never, or rarely, had access to comprehensive health coverage,” said Jennifer Koehler, director of the marketplace. “We have a big job to do between now and Oct. 1 in terms of educating our target population.” Claffey said that in addition to the Oct. 1 opening date, Dec. 15, Jan. 1 and

By the numbers: McHenry County and the Health Insurance Marketplace The Affordable Care Act, enacted in March 2010, guarantees insurance for all Americans. A Health Insurance Marketplace will open Oct. 1 that will offer dozens of insurance plans to citizens and small businesses. People who apply may qualify for lower costs on premiums or out-of-pocket costs; savings are based on household income and size. Some people will qualify for tax credits or subsidies to help pay for their insurance, and others will be newly eligible to enroll in Medicaid. In McHenry County, there are 302,938 people under age 65. Of those people, the following will be eligible for Medicaid or a subsidy once the Insurance Exchange opens: • 12,029 uninsured people ages 0-64 will be Medicaid eligible • 10,952 uninsured people ages 0-64 will be eligible for the exchange subsidy

March are important targets. Although open enrollment in the health insurance marketplace begins Oct. 1, coverage won’t kick in until Jan. 1 at the earliest. March is when the marketplace will close enrollment until the next fall. “To be covered on Jan. 1, you have to sign up by Dec. 15,” Claffey said. “There will be no payments until the insurance starts in January.” Those who don’t purchase a plan and remain uninsured – despite being able to afford insurance – will have to pay a

penalty on federal taxes. The penalty would start at $95, or 1 percent of annual income, for working, uninsured residents before increasing significantly in each following year of going without insurance. Many also could find benefits to buying insurance through the marketplace. Illinois is one of 25 states that have or are expected to accept expanded Medicaid coverage.

who do not currently qualify but have an income level at 138 percent of the federal poverty line – roughly $16,000 a year – will be covered. Those with higher incomes also can receive a subsidy, although it will be less as the income increases. Because the Illinois Legislature didn’t pass a governing structure and funding mechanism for an insurance marketplace, the state entered into a partnership with the federal government. The partnership puts the state in control of recommending plans, driving enrollment and educating the public while the federal government will approve the plans that can be purchased and make direct payments to carriers for those who receive subsidies. Ann Ford, executive director for Illinois Network of Centers for Independent Living, said Oct. 1 cannot come fast enough. Her organization, which serves people with disabilities and has a center in McHenry County, is one of the 44 that will receive money to train in-person counselors. Ford, who has a disability and could not receive health insurance until she was eligible for Medicare, said the new law that requires insurance companies to accept people with pre-existing conditions will open a new world to thousands of people. “We have a lot of outreach to do to people because many have never had insurance,” Ford said. “We can’t wait to walk them through what will finally be available to them.”

• OBAMA Continued from page A1 Legislative victories have been scarce, with Obama’s gun control measures vanquished on Capitol Hill, slim prospects for a grand deficit reduction deal and an uncertain future for a White House-backed immigration overhaul. Domestic entanglements and foreign policy crises also have thrown the White House off course and into a defensive crouch. Obama’s health care law is nearing a critical phase that will determine its success and a fresh budget battle is looming at the government approaches its borrowing limit. Obama’s top aides insist they came into the year clear-eyed about the potential pitfalls, particularly on Capitol Hill, where Republicans run the House. “We always knew what the political realities were,” said Dan Pfeiffer, Obama’s senior adviser. “We won a big election – and we won with 51 percent of the vote.” In an era of divided government and an equally divided nation, the White House says it is measuring second-term success in ways other than the legislative scorecard, including through executive actions. In assessing the promises fulfilled from Obama’s Jan. 21 inauguration address, his advisers point to progress on gay rights and

climate change, which had prominent placements in the speech. “We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations,” Obama said as he addressed the crowd sprawled across the National Mall on that chilly January day. “Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms.” But recent progress on those issues comes with asterisks. Obama did outline an ambitious climate change agenda this month, including first-ever limits on carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. But it’s far too early to say whether his pledges will get results. Congressional opposition also limited him to only proposals that do not require approval from lawmakers, meaning broader measures, including a capand-trade law, remain unobtainable. On gay issues, the expansion of rights for same-sex couples emanated from the Supreme Court, though the Obama administration did ask the justices to consider striking down a chief provision of the Defense of Marriage Act, which restricted federal benefits for in samesex marriages.

Examining health care The new marketplace opening in October will sell only one type of item – but it’s something that never has been presented in this manner before. Oct. 1 is when open enrollment in the Health Insurance Marketplace, or the Exchange, starts in Illinois. It’s part of the federal Affordable Care Act, which, among other things, mandates that all Americans have health insurance. The Exchange is an online portal that will serve as a central location For the record for residents and small businesses Oct. 1 is when open enrollto compare and ment in the Health Insurance choose from dozMarketplace, or the Exchange, ens of insurance starts in Illinois. plans. Six providers have proposed 165 plans, and coverage kicks in Jan. 1. Each plan will be categorized in one of four “metal” levels – bronze, silver, gold and platinum, with bronze the lowest and platinum the highest in terms of coverage, breadth, depth and services. Some who use the Exchange will qualify for subsidies or become eligible for Medicaid. Those who already have insurance don’t have to shop the Exchange, but may want to check it out to see if they can save on insurance costs. State officials have said they initially expect about 500,000 residents to apply when the market opens Oct. 1, and expect it to increase to 1 million people by 2016. In McHenry County, for instance, the act will allow an estimated 12,029 residents, up to age 64 who are uninsured, to become eligible for Medicaid. An additional 10,952 county residents without insurance will be eligible for a subsidy to help pay costs, according to a study posted on the website of Illinois Health Matters. The Affordable Care Act, often called Obamacare, usually elicits strong reactions. Some love it. Some hate it. We have concerns about where the money will come from to pay for its many provisions and regulations, and how much of a financial burden it will be on taxpayers and businesses. We’re also not thrilled with the federal government getting involved so deeply in personal and business decisions. But that isn’t stopping us – and it shouldn’t stop you – from learning all we can about the Exchange and the act, and what it could mean for our personal situations. The Northwest Herald is setting out to do just that: Starting today and for the next six months, we plan to run an occasional series that aims to educate about the changes wrought by the Affordable Care Act. Some stories will focus on the Exchange, including how it could affect residents, businesses and health-care systems. Others will focus on the numerous changes – such as the mandate to have insurance and eliminating annual limits on insurance coverage – that start Jan. 1. No matter the topic, all of the articles aim to educate our readers so they can make decisions that are best for them.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE State of selfishness To the Editor: The state of Illinois is broke, both financially and literally. Debt continues to mount; the pension crisis goes unresolved; and drug-dealing gangs largely control the city of Chicago. Meanwhile, our leaders spend their time on issues such as same-sex marriage, concealedcarry legislation (gangs have enacted their own), and immigration reform. Why bother? Within a few years, the only ones left here will be those trapped by home ownership, whatever their sexual orientation or race. I call them leaders, because they are those we have chosen, or at least allowed to stay in office through our apathy. Get out and vote, elect someone else, we’re told. Yet, time and time again, I see the same self-serving individuals presenting themselves as candidates for this or that office, with the same goal in mind – dinner at the trough of taxpayers’ dollars, with a dessert of a public pension. “I may as well be on the receiv-

ing end of the greed,” their actions say. “Better that than standing by as others partake of it.” If they truly wish to solve this crisis of pensions, why not start with their own? One member of the committee formed to resolve the issue, Daniel Bliss, was a university math professor, served one term in the House, and now has been elected to the Senate. Someone with his background would seem a worthy member of this conference committee on pension reform. But how many pensions will he be collecting? Douglas Knight Huntley

Wrong is wrong To the Editor: I’ve sat by and read all the letters I care to read about the Rev. Brian Grady’s decision to no longer allow the Boy Scouts to use rooms at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church. The Boy Scouts made their choice, and Grady made his. He has that right and I agree with him 100 percent.

There have been several letters that made the comment that God made gays and lesbians, which is not true. What is true is God made all people with a free will, and we have choices to make in life. If you believe God made gays and lesbians, then you do not believe you have a free will. The people of Sodom and Gomorrah chose homosexuality, and God destroyed them.

To the Editor: Is it politics, money or both? I recently moved, and the Pace bus no longer will come where I live. I will not reveal my age or disability, but I cannot walk the few blocks to take the bus. Groceries in rain, snow, etc. – get real!

16-year-old survivor of terrorist attack has a brave heart BELFAST, Northern Ireland – While American cable TV news engaged in saturation coverage of the closing arguments and verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial, the BBC and Sky News carried an inspiring speech by Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old Pakistani girl shot in the head last October by the Taliban for advocating the education of girls. On her birthday, Malala addressed in barely accented English a special youth gathering at the United Nations in New York. She wore a shawl that had belonged to the late Pakistani President Benazir Bhutto, who was assassinated by Islamic extremists in 2007. Only occasionally referring to notes, Malala, who now lives in Birmingham, England, where she received medical treatment after the attack, delivered a speech more

compelling than those given by most diplomats and presidents who have spoken at the UN. “Thousands of people have been killed by the terrorists and millions have been injured,” she noted, “I am just one of them.” She said her injury and the killing and wounding of her friends had launched “thousands of voices.” Sounding more mature than her years, Malala said, “The terrorists thought that they would change our aims and stop our ambitions but nothing changed in my life except this: Weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, power and courage was born.” Invoking the nonviolent teachings of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Jesus, Buddha, Mother Teresa and Nelson Mandela, Malala said she is not against anyone, rather she is for

VIEWS Cal Thomas education for girls and boys, especially the children of the Taliban. She said, “I do not even hate the Talib who shot me. Even if there is a gun in my hand and he stands in front of me, I would not shoot him.” In a powerful indictment of extremism, Malala said, “The extremists are afraid of books and pens. The power of education frightens them. They are afraid of women. The power of the voice of women frightens them.” She accused terrorists of “misusing the name of Islam and Pashtun society for their own personal benefits.”

While her claim “Islam is a religion of peace” is debatable, given how it is often practiced by many radicals who assert they are the true disciples of Mohammed, Malala’s voice needs to be multiplied by thousands, even millions if the Taliban and their terrorist brothers are to be isolated and defeated. The voices (and, most importantly, behavior) must come from within Islam, not outside of it. Here are three recent examples of what Malala and her applauding UN audience face. Last week, Islamic extremists kidnapped and murdered a Coptic Christian in Egypt as part of a protest against the military coup that ousted President Mohammed Morsi. It is the latest example of the growing persecution against Egyptian Christians. The Middle East Media Research

Institute reported that in a Friday sermon in Damascus, a Syrian preacher blamed Jews for the civil unrest throughout the Middle East. In London, a funeral was held last week for Lee Rigby, a British soldier stabbed to death in May by a pair of alleged Islamic fanatics. Malala, though courageous, faces a seemingly impossible task, but if one person can spark a revolution, perhaps one can spark a counterrevolution with words like these: “Let us wage a global struggle against illiteracy, poverty and terrorism and let us pick up our books and pens. They are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world.” Good luck, brave heart.

Heart of gold By JOSEPH BUSTOS LAKE IN THE HILLS – Inside the Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District headquarters, a small group of volunteers stacked assorted school supplies on tables. There were stacks of spiral notebooks, boxes of markers, crayons, erasers and pencils, ready to be put into backpacks for youngsters in need. After it was all organized, members of the Hearts of Gold group began putting the supplies into the bags, which were distributed to 50 students in kindergarten through eighth grade in Carpentersville-based District 300. The Tools for School distribution is one of the two main activities for the small volunteer group. Hearts of Gold was started in 2002 after Make a Child Smile disbanded


Volunteers help less fortunate in Algonquin, LITH, District 300

in 2001. The group, which is currently six people, formed as a way to continue to help people in Algonquin and Lake in the Hills. Volunteers also sponsor holiday giving trees, where they ask people to buy gifts for those in need around Algonquin and Lake in the Hills. The group works with the Algonquin Area Public Library to collect food. For this year’s school supply distribution, the group received backpacks donated by Costco. With financial donations, they were able to buy $820 worth of supplies. Hearts of Gold Vice President Petra Schmid said the group helps people who may have a sickness in the family with medical bills, people who are having trouble making ends meet or those who are out of a job.

Nippersink watershed group gathers views on water quality By EMILY K. COLEMAN WONDER LAKE – The Nippersink Creek Watershed Association seeks to gather information about residents’ knowledge and priorities when it comes to protecting water quality in the area. A survey will be sent to watershed residents – the watershed covers 202 square miles in Illinois and Wisconsin – the week of July 29, according to a news release. It also will be available online

at the association’s website, The survey tries to gauge how watershed landowners view the importance of protecting the quality of surface and groundwater, how they view potential threats to that water quality, and whether they understand the degree to which different activities can affect water quality. It asks residents how they would rate the quality of water for different activities; whether poor water quality issues, such

as contaminated drinking or swimming water, have become a problem in their area; what types of preventive practices, such as creating a rain garden and properly disposing of pet waste, they’re familiar with and have adopted; whether they fertilize their lawns; and whether they have septic systems. The information will be used to generate a social assessment of what is important to property owners and identify what educational outreach may be needed.

Lathan Goumas –

Boxes of crayons await to be packed as members of Hearts of Gold organize school supplies Thursday in Algonquin. The school supplies were donated to 50 students in Algonquin and Lake in the Hills through the Hearts of Gold drive.

Hearts of Gold funded solely by donations • HEART

Continued from page B1 “There are people who have fallen on hard times, with no fault of their own,” said Schmid, of Lake in the Hills. “We do basic things, but if you were to add that all up, and they would have to buy that, they would have to spend a lot of money.” Schmid said the group is limited in what it can do because it is small. “We need funding. We are small; we don’t have big fundraising events,” Schmid said. “Everything we do is based on what we get from donations from individuals, businesses and some community groups.” Treasurer Kathy Anderson said families have to requalify each year. Those on state assistance for food automatically qualify for help.

“It’s important that we help our own community. There’s so many organizations that do important things, but I think it’s important for the community to help each other.” Kathy Anderson Hearts of Gold treasurer

“Because we are solely funded by donations, whether it be from businesses or individuals, we have to do our due diligence,” said Anderson, also of Lake in the Hills. “We’re the stewards of your donated money. We take that donation and pass it on to our clients. We want to ensure we’re helping those who really need help.” The group used to pro-

vide winter coats for those in need, but stopped the project because of a lack of funding, Anderson said. During the holidays, Hearts of Gold helps about 55 families in its Heart to Heart Holiday project. Volunteers set up 12 giving trees in Algonquin and Lake in the Hills. The trees have tags with families’ wishes and can range from basic necessities, such as soap or bedsheets, to gifts for teens, such as an iTunes gift card. They also distribute toys through Toys for Tots. “It’s important that we help our own community,” Anderson said. “There’s so many organizations that do important things, but I think it’s important for the community to help each other.” For information or to donate, visit

Conservation districts not included as part of ban • WEAPONS Continued from page B1 “I don’t like us relinquishing control,” he said, adding that passing a ban would have given the conservation district the ability to change it in the future. The MCCD banned all guns on its property, but a fix passed Thursday night after the assault weapons ban failed in a 4-3 vote brings the district in line with state law. Those with concealed-carry permits still would be prohibited from bringing their guns into government buildings, museums and playgrounds. The law specifically bans concealed carry in the Cook County Forest Preserve and city parks maintained by park districts or municipalities. Conservation districts are not included. The details still are being worked out, Executive Director Elizabeth Kessler said. The Illinois State Police has six months to set up the program.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Colonel Dan E. Andrew, of Winston-Salem and formerly a longtime resident of both Park Ridge and Woodstock, died on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2013, at the age of 93. Dan lived with an uncommon zest for life, greeting friends and new acquaintances alike with a smile and firm handshake, and holding true to the ideals of integrity, honesty, love of family and love of country. He was born in Nebraska in 1919, moving with his parents, R.O. and Lotta Andrew, to Woodstock in 1925. Dan earned his accounting degree at age 20 from the University of Illinois, where he was a member of the last ROTC class of the Army Horse Calvary. He served during World War II supervising the making of munitions, and returned to active duty again during the Korean War. He remained in the Army Reserve until 1979, leaving as a full colonel. Dan earned his MBA from the University of Chicago and held a variety of executive positions including working in his family’s business – R.O. Andrew Co. in Woodstock. He also was an accountant for General Electric, headed the human resources and trust departments at Citizens Bank in Park Ridge, and ultimately served as CEO and chairman of Des Plaines National Bank. He and his wife, Lorena, moved to Park Ridge in 1970, and then returned to Woodstock following Dan’s retirement in 1986. The two moved to Winston-Salem in 2000, where Lorena passed away following a brief illness. Dan was named Woodstock’s

“Man of the Year” and was champion of the Woodstock Country Club, each three times. He was an active member of the Methodist Church and the Elks Club, and he led the drive to build the Woodstock swimming pool. Dan was especially proud to be chairman of the effort that resulted in the All-America City designation for Woodstock in 1964. Dan and Lorena traveled widely, including taking several memorable trips to Mainland China when that nation was just being opened to U.S. visitors. A primary focus of his later years was maintaining close contact with his extended family and researching his genealogy over many generations. Dan was very proud of his three children: Ray, a graduate of Woodstock High School (Susan), Lynne (Francis) and John (Lori), as well as his six grandchildren. On Saturday, June 22, family and friends gathered at a graveside memorial service with military honors in Pfafftown, N.C. Memorial contributions may be made to the Forsyth County Mental Health Association, 1509 S. Hawthorne Road, Winston-Salem, NC 27103 or the Kate B.

ISLAND LAKE – Hannelore “Hanna” Griffiths, 69, passed away at home on Saturday, July 13, 2013, surrounded by loved ones. Born in Germany on Feb. 20, 1944, Hanna attended trade school and eventually married a United States serviceman. From 1962 to 1981, she raised four children in various locales, including Hanau, Germany, where she ensured her children were exposed to all that her homeland could offer.

Aside from her children, her proudest achievement came on Nov. 3, 2009, when she became a United States citizen. She enjoyed the company of her beloved four-legged companion, Jin. She is survived by her children, Michael (Connie), Patricia and Thomas (Amy); two grandchildren, Ryan and Joshua; sister, Christa; and niece, Sandra.

“Why does my air conditioner run all the time?” This is a very common situation with many of our customer’s equipment when we have extreme temperatures. Some of the most common causes are: • Dirty Filters - Restricts air flow which will make the AC run longer. Extremely clogged filters will cause the evaporator coil to freeze, which means no air or very little air flow. • Refrigerant Imbalance - If the refrigerant level is not within factory specs, the system will not cool properly. • Proper size of equipment - If the installing contractor did not do a load calculation, then your system could be undersized. • Old Age - When a compressor is in the 10 year range, it may no longer pump the refrigerant as it was designed to do. This will result in constant running and poor cooling. Maintaining clean filters is the homeowner’s responsibility. All of the other items require the evaluation of a professional. If your filter is clean and your system is under performing, please call us for a proper diagnosis and resolution.

Health department to offer reduced-fee water testing NORTHWEST HERALD WOODSTOCK – In honor of Safe Drinking Water Month, the McHenry County Department of Health will offer reduced-fee water testing for individual well water users during August. Residents can have their well water sampled for coliform bacteria and nitrate for $18. Testing wells regularly is the only way to determine whether well water is safe to drink because many contaminants are colorless and odorless. Water from a public or municipal water system is regularly tested for contaminants regulated by federal and state standards. The health department will test water from private wells for nuisance chemicals resulting in water hardness, iron, discoloration and odor. Additional charges will apply. Sampling kits can be picked up at health department locations in Woodstock, Crystal Lake or at one of eight drop-off centers. Samples can

be dropped off for testing between 9 a.m. and noon Tuesdays at the following sites: • Algonquin Townships Office, 3702 Route 14, Crystal Lake, 847-639-2329 • Dorr Township Office, 1039 Lake Ave., Woodstock, 815-338-0125 • McHenry County Health Department, 100 N.

late Margaret (McCullough) and George Rich. Michael’s brain was injured during delivery and that caused communication challenges. Blessed with a dedicated teacher who worked with him at school and a family that worked with him at home, Michael was able to learn to read and write and express himself artistically. He also carried out chores on the family dairy farm in Alden. As a young adult, Michael was a client of Pioneer Center for Human Services in McHenry. He enjoyed working in the sheltered workshop and participating in social events, particularly bowling, dancing and Special Olympics. Following the death of his father, Michael moved into the Seborg Terrace group home in Rockford. There with his housemates, he worked at Barbara Olson Center of Hope for many years. He was especially proud of the Christmas cards they printed that featured a Christmas tree that he drew. Due to medical needs, Michael had to leave his home at Seborg Terrace to enter a skilled care facility. He moved to Holton Manor in Elkhorn on July 18, 2012, to be closer to his sisters. While he regretted leaving the physicians and caregivers that he knew and loved in Rockford, he made new friends of the physicians and caregivers that he had in Wisconsin. Michael was a sweet and goodhumored person who kept track of the weather and the moon. He enjoyed animals (particularly Jersey cows, horses, dogs and cats), flags blowing in the wind,

The Kane County Cougars’ Jose Rosario stretches in center field before the start of Thursday’s game against the Great Lakes Loons in Geneva. Sarah Nader –

Success of Cubs’ minor leaguers isn’t measured by statistics By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO ore than two hours before a Single-A Kane County home game on a warm July morning, second baseman Gioskar Amaya fields a grounder, prepares to throw to first base and then it comes. Cougars manager Mark Johnson, with a bat and ball in hand, stops the infield routine. “Hey, we’re throwing home,” first baseman Dan Vogelbach yells. “Pay attention,” Johnson adds. In the Cubs’ organization, particularly at the lower levels such


as Kane County, there is a heavy emphasis on the importance of pre-game work. That’s true in most baseball organizations. In some regards, that work – which includes drills centered on fundamentals – is more important than the games themselves. “Hopefully, the work that’s done early goes into the game at some point throughout the season,” Cubs director of player development Brandon Hyde said. Each individual coaching staff in the minors is given the responsibility of creating a daily pre-game plan, which can be influenced by what

time the game starts, travel plans or weather conditions, although the Cubs provide a format with expectations to every manager. On Friday, it was the pitchers’ turn to take fielding practice. They spent 30 minutes before batting prac-

tice working in the 90-degree heat as Johnson hit hard grounders. Pitcher Felix Pena jumped in the air, snagging the ball and delivering a perfect throw home. “Way to go,” Johnson shouted. Days are often long without much free time. Johnson typically logs 12-hour days, creating pre-game routines and, at this point in the season, updating each player’s development plan, which the player and coach eventually sit down to discuss. “They push us. They push us to the limit, and that’s the way it should be,” Vogelbach said. For home night games, players


Strong return boosts Peavy’s value CHICAGO – If White Sox manager Robin Ventura has it his way, pitching Jake Peavy won’t be leaving the South Side before the July 31 trade deadline. But should Peavy, whose start Saturday against the Braves was his first since June 4, prove he is healthy and completely recovered from a fractured rib in the 10 days before the trade deadline, the 32-year-old right-hander could be the next Sox player dealt. “I’d rather keep him,” Next Ventura said. “Believe me, Atlanta at Sox, 1:10 p.m. that’s very Sunday, WGN, evident for me because I know AM-670 how good he is and I know it’s good for us to have him because he’s a good pitcher. “I don’t think about all the other stuff. I want him to do well first and foremost because I know it’s good for us.” With about 10 scouts in attendance at U.S. Cellular Field, Peavy didn’t seem bothered by the long layoff. Although he didn’t have great command of his pitches early, Peavy settled down and helped the Sox pull out a 10-6 win against Atlanta. Peavy (74) allowed four runs – though only two were earned – in six innings. He retired nine

SOX INSIDER Meghan Montemurro of the last 11 batters he faced and did not surrender a walk for the sixth time in 12 starts this season. “It don’t bother me,” Peavy said of pitching in front of scouts. “I just have to go out there and try to win. There’s a lot of eyes on me, period. … Whatever scouts see, they see. I love to play. I love to compete. I want to win. That’s the bottom line.” Peavy will likely need one more solid outing to convince interested teams that he has completely healed and is in good shape after the rib injury. That sets up a marquee matchup Thursday when he takes the mound to face the AL Central-leading Tigers, who will start Justin Verlander. Peavy is an intriguing option for playoff contending teams, especially ones featuring a younger rotation, such as the Diamondbacks. Peavy provides a veteran clubhouse presence and has playoff experience from his time with the Padres. He’d be a valuable acquisition for any team gunning for the playoffs. He also comes with a manageable contract with about $7 million still owed this AP photo season and $14.5 million owed next season.

INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPMENT VS. WINNING Ultimately, minor league wins don’t matter. A successful team doesn’t translate to major league talent just as a team that struggles to win, such as the 35-57 Cougars (worst in the Midwest League), is not necessarily unproductive.

Run for Jodi raises funds to fight MS The harsh reality is that Jodi Farris’ days are numbered. And they are extremely difficult. The 53-year-old Woodstock woman’s 17-year battle with multiple sclerosis is nearing the end. But her family takes consolation that she will leave life just as she lived it: by helping others. Jodi’s husband Bruce, a dentist in Woodstock, formerly coached cross country at Woodstock North. One of his former runners, Alex Geisler, came up with the idea for the Run for Jodi, a 5K run-walk that will take place at 8:15 p.m. Aug. 3 at North High School. Racers will be given glow sticks for the twilight run. Entry fees are $25, and all proceeds will go to the National MS Society. Anyone interested can register at by clicking on the “Find A Race” option and searching there. Jodi is blind and can barely talk or move now. Bruce cherishes any moments they can spend together, as tough as they have become. But he knows she appreciates the support and being able to help others. “She’s a sweetheart and so supportive of everybody,” Farris said. “I feel terrible because I took all this time [coaching] that we had together. Now our time consists of sitting next to her or feeding her or helping her get to the bathroom.” It was Jodi who insisted that Bruce donate his coaching stipend each of the four years he coached the Thunder’s boys and girls cross country teams back to the school. Bruce estimates that was $25,000 that North had to spend elsewhere for athletics.

It’s not that hard, I don’t follow them at all.


ome people might argue that February is the worst month to be a sports fan, but the middle of July is at least as uneventful. With little else happening, it’s a good time to pop in a movie. Sports editor Jon Styf and columnist Tom Musick discuss:

Musick: We are square in the middle of the dog days of summer. The Cubs and White Sox are not going to snap me out of this mid-July malaise. It’s time to line up some sports movies for the next few days. Styf: I hear “Turbo” is coming out soon. I won’t be watching. But if you have Netflix on your live stream, make sure you watch “Undefeated,” a cool documentary on a Memphis high school football team without many resources. Or “Boys of Summer,” on the Curacao Little League team. This happens later, but did you know they had Jurickson Profar, Didi Gregorius and Andrelton Simmons? Three top young shortstops on one team, ridiculous. You’ll see why if you watch. Musick: You’re speaking my language, even though the Curacao film title sounds kind of blah. They should have called it “Charlie and the Shortstop Factory.” If we’re talking fictional baseball clubs, it’s always worth 90-ish minutes to hang out with Benny the Jet, Squints, Yeah-Yeah and everybody else who makes “The Sandlot” so great. That might be on my agenda for tonight. Styf: I was trying to avoid the obvious and give people some real recommendations. You like “Field of Dreams” and “Bull Durham,” too, I guess? “Major League?” You like the 30 for 30 documentaries too? Come on, Tom. Our readers have seen those. But have they seen “Summer Catch” (an embarrassing one I like you probably can’t find starring Freddie Prinze Jr.)? How about a gritty one like “Basketball Diaries,” back before Leonardo DiCaprio was Leo. “Trouble with the Curve” isn’t bad. Again, on Netflix live stream (I don’t have cable), I’d recommend the documentary “Knuckleball.” Maybe “Happy Gilmore” is more your speed. Musick: Why don’t you just go HOME? That’s your HOME! Are you too good for your HOME? Sorry, I got a little carried away thinking about “Happy Gilmore,” which is another 1990s gem. Anyway, I didn’t realize I was talking to such a film hipster. Let’s see if I can come up with something semi-obscure. How about “The Power of One”? It’s kind of about boxing, but it’s really about race and apartheid. It’s kind of heavy for the summertime, so make sure you’re in the right mood to watch it. Styf: I just don’t want to waste our readers’ time, like you like to. I care about them, deeply. Like Charles Comiskey cared about his players in “Eight Men Out.” Wait, maybe that came off wrong. I can tell you it’s a good idea to watch “Head Games” if you care about football. Or “Unguarded” or “Into the Wind” or “The Marinovich Project” (I’m sure you already saw “Benji”), three ESPN films, if you haven’t. The best random part of “Benji” is that you find out Common was his neighbor and R. Kelly was his high school teammate at Simeon while Juwan Howard and so many others grew up looking up to Ben Wilson. No R. Kelly jokes, Tom. Don’t even go there. Musick: OK, fine, I have trapped all of my R. Kelly jokes in the closet. You are right about “Benji.” And for anyone who never saw “Hoop Dreams,” add that to your queue. I think my buddy Siskel over here would agree that it’s a mustsee. Styf: I avoided it for the same reason I didn’t mention “Hoosiers,” “Miracle,” “Moneyball,” the “Rocky” movies and “Cinderella Man.” I’d rather recommend something they probably haven’t seen. Go find “Murderball” or, if you’re feeling sappy, “For Love of the Game” and call me in the morning.

Former Alden-Hebron standout Mark Winkelman recently finished his baseball career at Creighton, where he set a school record for appearances by a pitcher. But 130 appearances – mostly in relief – also took a toll on Winkelman’s arm, possibly costing him a chance at a career in baseball. On Draft Day, Winkelman received calls from the Angels, Astros, Giants, Rockies and Royals while also drawing interest from the Reds and Yankees.

I had thought about professional baseball ever since I was a little kid. I had never thrown very hard growing up. I picked up a little velocity the summer of my sophomore year and I started getting a few letters and questionnaires and calls my junior year and I started thinking it could become a reality. But unfortunately, my arm’s just really been bothering me and I just didn’t want to have surgery and rehab and all that. It got to the point by the end of my senior year (at Creighton) when it was in pain throwing and so I just didn’t think it was worth being in pain for. I love the game and I had a great career – I really enjoyed it. But I thought it was time to hang ’em up and move on.

It was hard but I just wanted to be honest. I didn’t want to say, “Yeah, OK, I’ll sign” and then get down there (to the minors) and not be able to throw. I think my arm could have healed but it would have taken a lot of time. Getting up to the pros is a long process as it is if you make it up there [to the majors]. So [the decision] was really hard, but at the same time, just getting contacted and called on Draft Day was an accomplishment in itself. So I did feel pretty good about that.

[The arm injury] was pretty discouraging. I started having issues with it halfway through my senior year and I guess I could have taken half the year off and just signed with a team. But I really liked being part of the team at school. When you play for a team like that, you can kind of fight through pain or fatigue a little bit. But when you get into the minors, it’s every man for themselves and you need to perform to get promoted. I didn’t think I would be able to handle the pain at that level.

I don’t want to say setting a new school record was enough for me because I definitely would have liked to keep playing. But it’s a big accomplishment, especially coming from a small school and not a lot of people thinking you can go anywhere. But I went to a Division I school and not only did I go, but I played and I set that record. So I guess there was a little bit of peace just to know that I did work hard and it did pay off and I enjoyed my time there. After high school, I was a little nervous because I was THE guy and in Division I baseball, there’s not a lot of times when you’re going to be their guy. But it was definitely nice to know the role you’re in – sometimes, I’d come in in the second (inning) and sometimes, it would be the ninth. I knew that was my role – to come in whenever coach needed me to, so for me, it was a great experience. I had great teammates all four years, had great coaches and so it was a lot of fun.

Cubs require minor leaguers to take neuro scouting tests • WORK Continued from page C1 To reach the majors, minor league players need to trust the process. In addition to the pre-game routine, which can run nearly two hours, players in the Cubs’ organization have homework – mandatory neuro scouting tests. Each day during a homestand – and once while on a road trip – position players take the test, the same one Vogelbach took in 2011 during a pre-draft workout with the Red Sox when Theo Epstein was still with Boston. Some of the tests, which can take five to 20 minutes on a computer or iPad, focus on timing, where players watch a pitcher throw different pitches and they must wait until it gets into the box before hitting the space bar. Others force players to swing at an on-screen pitch when it’s white and reaches the box or lay off if it’s red. “It helps your hand-eye coordination, helps your reaction time to lay off pitches,” Vogelbach said. “I think we definitely have an upper hand on that.” The Cubs hired a Latin American liaison, Rey Fuentes, to teach English. Cougars starting pitcher Felix Pena, a 23-year-old born in San Pedro de Macoris, Dominican Republic, appreciates the impact learning English can have on his quality of life on and off the field – even though that means attending the hour-anda-half English classes from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., most recently Friday and Saturday. On the mound, Pena is now able to communicate better with his teammates and pitching coach Ron Villone. During mound visits, Pena is confident he can get across what he needs to say, even if it doesn’t make complete sense. And unlike the majors, there is no official team translator to act as a go-between. Albert Almora, a 2012 first-round draft pick, and pitcher Lendy Castillo often fill the role of translator, especially for Spanish-speaking teammates who talk to the media. “Sometimes the toughest thing is the time it takes place because we’re tired from baseball, and then to go into it is a little overwhelming,” Pena said through Almora.

Sarah Nader –

The Kane County Cougars’ Andrew McKirahan (left) and Prairie Ridge graduate Michael Heesch walk back to the dugout after sprinting to the outfield before Thursday’s game in Geneva. The English classes are mandatory, missing one is a $100 fine. The 10 participating Cougars must complete 25 to 30 hours by the end of the season. Reliever Armando Rivero didn’t know any English before leaving Cuba. Since joining the Cougars after signing in March, Rivero has taken four English classes and is beginning to feel comfortable talking to teammates, though there are adjustments away from the ballpark. “It’s 100 percent different here with the culture compared to Cuba,” Rivero said through Castillo. “But I’m getting used to it. It’s very different, like with the food.” Castillo, who learned English during his time in the Phillies’ minor leagues and also took a refresher course this year during spring training in Mesa, is thrilled his Spanish-speaking teammates are

taking the classes seriously. “You don’t have to worry about anyone helping you,” Castillo said. “Like, if you got pulled over by the police, that stuff can happen and you know how to talk to them.” Hyde said the Cubs’ goal is to make sure international players aren’t caught off guard in an unfamiliar environment and let it affect their performance. Helping them better communicate with teammates and coaches and even do something as simple as ordering at a restaurant is a high priority. “You try the best you can to give the kids that are coming into a new experience, I think have sensitivity to how hard that really is of not knowing the language and culture,” Hyde said. “We invested more time and money helping our international players understand the culture here so they’re able to perform is your connection to the Internet’s leading automotive marketplace. Search millions of new and pre-owned vehicles to find the right one for you. Visit to get started.

better and relax.”

LOOKING BEYOND STATISTICS In many cases, statistics don’t explain the whole story with prospects. Maturity and mental readiness are “an enormous factor” in assessing a player, Hyde said, especially when evaluating whether he is ready to be promoted. “That’s a huge part of it for me when you’re promoting a guy. Obviously, we look at numbers, but a big factor is, ‘Is this guy ready for this level, mentally, maturity-wise?’ ” Hyde said. “Because it is so much different level to level. It’s the same game, but there are different factors at every level.” Shortstop Javier Baez earned a promotion to Double-A Tennessee after putting up respectable numbers at High-A Daytona (.274 batting average, .338 on-base percentage, 17 home

runs and 57 RBIs). Despite an expanded strike zone, leading to 78 strikeouts, and committing 31 errors, Baez’s intangibles contributed to his readiness. Almora is heading down a similar path. Not only does he impress on the field, batting .323 with three home runs and 20 RBIs for the Cougars, but Almora’s off-field demeanor has helped. A sign-up sheet was taped on the Cougars’ clubhouse door Thursday requesting two players to volunteer Friday morning for a one-hour appearance at Cadence (Delnor) Health and Wellness Center, for which the players would be compensated $25. All day Thursday the sheet remained void of names, eventually forcing Johnson to address the situation after the Cougars’ 3-2 loss to Great Lakes that night. “Who has yet to do one?” Johnson asked as players hung around eating their postgame meal of tacos. While the clubhouse remained quiet, Almora, sitting at his locker, raised his hand. “I’ll do it,” Almora said. “You’ve done enough of them,” Johnson replied. Two Cougars eventually volunteered to appear at the event, but afterward Johnson said of Almora, “that’s what makes him a special kid, doing things like that.” Statistics in the minors can be misleading because of the emphasis on personal development. For a starting pitcher, it could mean the organization requires he throw his worst pitch for 30 percent of his pitches in one start. Even if the pitcher gets lit up, his development outweighs the ugly pitching line. “We do put a huge emphasis on the process,” Hyde said. “We understand results aren’t going to happen overnight. And that’s reported, too. … Sometimes performance is sacrificed for development.” Statistics can’t – and don’t – accurately reflect the work put in outside of minor league games. “I don’t think people understand how much work they put into it,” Johnson said. “When you put the hours that we put in daily and if you looked at it like we’re getting paid at minimum wage, we’d be making about $1.20 an hour. “It’s an absolute grind and a marathon at this level.”

Run organizers hope for 750 participants • PREP ZONE Continued from page C1 Even with a well-paying dental practice, the Farrises had two children – Wally, 25, and Abby, 24 – going through college and could have used the money. Jodi, the office manager at Bruce Farris DDS, insisted they let North keep it. “Anything she can do, even though she was sick, she wanted to help people,” Bruce said. “She always wanted to be like that.” Bruce graduated from Woodstock High School in 1973, where he ran for former coach R.B. Thompson on the Blue Streaks’

first state meet-qualifying team. Jodi was diagnosed with MS at age 37. They were running enthusiasts and attended meets, even with Jodi in a wheelchair, when Wally was running for Woodstock. In recent years, it became too difficult. Bruce says the main thing Jodi complained about last fall was not getting to see the kids run. Geisler started planning the run, and Bruce Farris helped him with the legal details and setting up the race. In one week, they received $10,000 in sponsorships, and they are hoping for 750 participants. Jodi left hospice care recently

because she wanted to spend her last time at home with her family. How wonderful would it be if she at least will hear details about how much her race raised for fighting MS. “She is the most unselfish person I know,” Bruce said. “Her only concern is for her family and those less fortunate than her.” Right now, that list is quite small. • Joe Stevenson is a senior sports writer for the Northwest Herald.

Westwood’s work not done Englishman chases first major title, leads Tiger by 2 By DOUG FERGUSON The Associated Press GULLANE, Scotland – Lee Westwood passed his first big test Saturday when he outplayed Tiger Woods and grabbed a two-shot lead in the British Open. The next one figures to be the toughest test of all. Westwood somehow salvaged a bogey from the kneehigh grass on the 16th, pulled ahead of Woods with a birdie on the 17th and was solid down the last hole for a 1-under-par 70 that gave him a two-shot lead going into the final day at Muirfield. Widely considered the best player of his generation to have never won a major, Westwood is the 54-hole leader for the second time. Phil Mickelson overtook him in the Masters three years ago. Two other times, the Englishman missed a playoff by one shot. “I’m hoping it’s going to turn out differently because I haven’t won one yet and I’d like to win one,” Westwood said.

“But what can you do? You can only do what you think is right and put all that practice and hard work you’ve done tomorrow, try not to get in your own way mentally and just focus on the job at hand and believe you’re good enough.” After three days on brittle, Lee brown MuirWestwood field, only three players remained under par. Westwood was at 3-under 210, two shots clear of Woods (72) and Hunter Mahan, whose 68 matched the best score of the third round. Mahan, also going after that maiden major with far fewer credentials than Westwood, will be playing in the final group at his second straight major. Woods lost his chance to get in the final group with one swing. Tied with Westwood as they played the par-5 17th into a stiff breeze off the Firth of Forth,

Saturday, August 3rd

Saturday in Scotland GULLANE, Scotland – A glance at Saturday’s third round of the British Open at 7,192-yard, par-71 Muirfield. Leading: Lee Westwood, who shot 2-under-par 70 for a 210 total. Just behind: Hunter Mahan and Tiger Woods, who shot 68 and 72, respectively, and at 212 were the only other players in the field under par. Where’s Phil? Mickelson was tied for ninth at 2 over after a 72. Notable: Woods has 14 majors, second only to Jack Nicklaus’ 18, but he’s never come from behind to win one. Quotable: “Actually, I’m not in a high-pressure situation because I’m only going to have dinner. I’m so good with a knife and fork now, I don’t feel any pressure at all.” – Westwood, who has never won a major, on how he’ll handle the 54-hole lead.

Woods tried to hit 3-wood over a series of bunkers to allow for a simple wedge into the green. With his ball on the slightest slope, he got it up in the air just enough that the wind grabbed it and deposited the ball in the bunker. Woods had to blast out sideways and missed a 15-foot par putt. This is his best chance for Woods to end his five-year drought in the majors since the upheaval in his personal life at the end of 2009. And while he has never won a major when trailing going into the last day, the outlook didn’t look bleak from his vantage point. “I’ve got 14 of these things, and I know what it takes to win it,” Woods said. “He’s won tournaments all over the world. He knows how to win golf tournaments. He’s two shots ahead and we’re going to go out there and both compete and play. It’s not just us two. There’s a bunch of guys who have a chance to win this tournament. And all of us need to really play well tomorrow to win it.”

Gonzalez leads way as Rockies batter Cubs By MICHAEL KELLY The Associated Press DENVER – Carlos Gonzalez homered and Todd Helton had three of the Colorado Rockies’ 13 hits in a 9-3 win over the Cubs on Saturday night. Troy Tulowitzki, Dexter Fowler and Wilin Rosario had two hits each for a Colorado offense that had scored eight runs in its previous five games. Luis Valbuena homered and had two RBIs for the Cubs. Juan Nicasio (6-4) allowed one run on three hits in five innings, striking out three and walking two to get his second straight win since being recalled from Triple-A on July 12. He beat Clayton Kershaw last week. Carlos Villanueva (2-6) allowed seven runs on nine hits in four-plus innings. He is winless in his last eight starts, and his last victory came in relief against Seattle on June 29. A warm night turned blustery as wind speeds reached 35 mph in the fourth inning. A strong gust coming in from right field helped keep Nate

Next for the Cubs Cubs at Colorado, 3:10 p.m. Sunday, CSN, AM-720 Schierholtz’s drive to the wall from going out in the top of the inning, and food wrappers and plastic bags from the stands littered the field in the bottom of the inning. The wind wasn’t strong enough to hold Valbuena’s drive in the third. He crushed a 92 mph fastball into the Rockies bullpen to give the Cubs a 1-0 lead. It was his ninth homer of the season. The Rockies’ offense woke up in the bottom of the fourth. Helton started it with a one-out single and scored on a groundout. Nicasio walked to put runners on the corners and Fowler followed with a two-run triple to make it 3-1.

GM Hahn can’t afford to be picky With the Sox sitting 18 games under .500, general manager Rick Hahn can’t afford to be too picky when it comes to keeping players. Peavy acknowledged it will be a “sad day to leave” if he is traded. “I love Chicago, and we once again made that clear this winter,” Peavy said. “I have a ton of friends here. I believe this team is capable of winning. This team, we showed you that we could last year, we just haven’t done much of that this year, and that’s unfortunate.” The Sox understand they face an uncertain finish to July as the trade deadline looms with rumors swirling. Outfielder Alex Rios, subject to rumors of his own, doesn’t want to consider what the Sox would be like without Peavy. However, that could soon be a reality. “With trade rumors, I just don’t like to speak about them,” Rios said. “They are just rumors. Until it happens, I’ll just stick to the idea that they are just rumors. If it happens, we can talk about it.”


Votto, Choo lift Reds over Pirates

WHITE SOX 10, BRAVES 6 Tipping point: The White Sox’s offense came alive during the third and fourth innings, scoring a combined nine runs. Alex Rios’ grand slam in the third gave the Sox a 5-4 lead, and they didn’t trail the rest of the game. On the mound: In his first start since June 4, Jake Peavy put together a solid, six-inning outing. Peavy allowed four runs (two earned) on seven hits and did not walk a batter. He also struck out three Braves, finishing with 96 pitches. Atlanta left-handed starter Paul Maholm left in the middle of Alejandro De Aza’s at-bat during the third because of a sprained left wrist. At the plate: The day after he was yanked from the game for having failed to run out a play, Rios went 3 for 5 with five RBIs and two runs scored. Catcher Josh Phegley had three hits, including two doubles, and De Aza had four hits to tie his career high. Only one Sox starter failed to reach base against the Braves. Under the radar: With the win against the Braves, the Sox avoided dropping 20 games under .500 for the first time since Sept. 26, 2007, when they were 69-89.

Smith reaches out to Sadler ahead of Chicagoland race By JAY COHEN The Associated Press JOLIET – Just as predictable as the weekend fender bashing is the awkward conversation a few days later. This time, it was Elliott Sadler and Regan Smith. And they talked, too. Even Dale Earnhardt Jr. waded into the fray. The latest NASCAR feud arrived Saturday at Chicagoland Speedway when Sadler, Smith and rest of the Nationwide drivers held two practice sessions for Sunday’s STP 300. The stop in suburban Chicago comes a week after the championship contenders got into a heated discussion in New Hampshire. “For him to do what he did at New Hampshire, I’m still ticked about it,” Sadler said. “But we talked and we agree that our racing’s going to

change a little bit between us. But we know that we’re going to be racing around each other a lot between now and Homestead.” That means the dispute could have staying power, especially after the conversation between Sadler and Smith produced little headway. It all started when Smith spun Sadler around on the final restart in Saturday’s race at Loudon, costing him a shot at a solid top-10 finish and a potential $100,000 bonus. An angry Sadler then confronted Smith after the race, insisting he would not win the series title this year. “I made the move and I can’t take it back,” Smith said. “I understand his anger 100 percent, and I know exactly where he was coming from. He was racing for a lot of money and the opportunity to race for a lot of

neuver in a tough spot at the series’ stop in Iowa and said he went out of his way to race him cleanly earlier in New Hampshire. The two talked during the week, and Earnhardt, the co-owner of Smith’s No. 7 Chev-

rolet, also reached out to close friend Sadler. “We talked and if it’s a situation where we’re going for it, I’m sure he’s going to race me considerably harder than what he has in the past,” Smith said, “and that’s to be expected. I would do the same.” Sadler, who won last July’s Nationwide race at Chicagoland, shook his head from side to side when asked if he felt any better after the conversation. “My No. 1 goal is to win the championship and win races,” he said. “The effect of me and how I race Regan is just going to change, as far as giving room and give and take and stuff like that is probably going to change a little bit.” Sadler is fifth in the standings, trailing series leader Smith by 24 points. Sam Hornish Jr. is second, just five points back, and Austin Dillon

is third with 16 races left. “I love it. I hope that they’re mad at each other,” Dillon said. “If not, I’m going to go tell Elliott Regan’s talking about him behind his back. I think it’s funny.” Although arguments between competitors are nothing new in sports, NASCAR drivers seem to make more of an effort to smooth over disputes than say, two hockey players who just got into a fight. Sadler said there’s a simple reason for that difference. “When you play hockey, you have ‘Blackhawks’ written on your jersey, so you’re responsible for the Blackhawks,” he said. “When you drive racing, we have Fortune 500 companies up here. They don’t want you running around, I think, punching people, then setting a bad example. And I think it’s a courtesy thing.”

McDonald’s seeks second Huntley site

DAVE SAYS Dave Ramsey

Getting the guilt trip from her dad


Dear Dave, My parents have always had financial problems, and they recently lost their home. They have a place to live, but since that time my father has been asking me for money. He calls me over to talk about this when my mother isn’t there and my husband isn’t home. He’s even asked for half of a $150,000 inheritance I received from my grandparents. He’s really making me feel guilty, and I’m not sure what to do.

– Elena

Dear Elena, Your brain knows what to do, but your heart is having a hard time doing it. Your father is a manipulator, and we’re not going to let that pattern continue. There’s nothing wrong with doing a few, short-term things to help them get back on their feet. But in return, you should expect them to change the behaviors that have put them in this situation. Also, there should be no more private meetings with your father. If he wants to talk, make sure he understands it will be with your husband and mother present. To this point all of his schemes have been on the side, and this needs to be brought out into the open and stopped. Any help you give needs to be short-term in nature – a gift. You and your husband should be in agreement on exactly what you’re going to do, and it should be on your terms. Don’t get involved in giving them money every month for the rest of their lives just because they had you. That’s not how this works. There’s an ongoing sense of entitlement here that needs to be nipped in the bud!

– Dave

Dear Dave, My husband and I are trying to improve our financial situation by following your plan. We were wondering where home improvements fall in the Baby Steps.

– Emily

Dear Emily, Unless you’re talking about an emergency situation, home improvements would fall into the category of wants, not needs. If you’d like new carpet, nicer windows or an updated kitchen, these things need to wait until after you’ve completed the first three Baby Steps. Let’s review. Baby Step 1 means saving up $1,000 in the bank for a starter emergency fund. Baby Step 2 is paying off all debts except for your home. The third Baby Step is going back to your emergency fund and building it up so you have an amount equal to three to six months of expenses in case something goes wrong. Once you’ve gotten to this point, you’ll be able to save and do some other things, including a few home improvements!

A new vision Optometrist’s departure leaves void at clinic By SHAWN SHINNEMAN WOODSTOCK – Broken down to the numbers, all Optometrist Jon Russell’s departure from Family Health Partnership Clinic does is create a 180-minute void once a month. But considering his were the only three hours the clinic for the uninsured and underinsured had the ability to provide eye care, it’s a time slot management wants to fill – and then some – as soon as possible. Even with Russell, who’d been with FHPC since shortly after it opened, the clinic had built a roughly 30-person wait list for eye care. “I think there’s probably at least two full days a month that aren’t getting filled,” said Russell, who left the clinic last month to devote more time to another not-for-profit, the Rockford-based Center for Sight & Hearing. “We could be seeing those patients I didn’t get to see because we had too many people to schedule.” Providing eye care has been part of founder and Executive Director Suzanne Hoban’s vision since she started the clinic in the mid-1990s. Since then, the amount of uninsured McHenry County residents has continued to grow. Even those with medical insurance aren’t always allowed regular eye check-ups under their plans, Hoban said. “Everything that we take for granted – having good vision or correctable vision – is really lost when you cannot afford an eye exam and the glasses to go with it,” she said. “It makes a huge economic impact on the family as well as on the workplace.” The partnership clinic in Woodstock has gotten help from other agencies like the local Lion’s Club to provide glasses for those who can’t

HUNTLEY – McDonald’s wants to open a second restaurant in Huntley. Representatives from the fast-food chain recently proposed building a 4,376-square-foot restaurant with a side-by-side drivethrough in an outlot in front of the Wal-Mart on Route 47. Plans show the exterior of the restaurant would feature McDonald’s new prototype design primarily built with “face brick and cultured store with yellow metal canopies and aluminum trellis,” according to village documents. McDonald’s trademarked arches would be on all four sides of the building. The company also wants a 6-foot-tall monument sign with an electronic message center in front of the restaurant. Huntley’s sign ordinance prohibits such signs. The Village Board agreed in late June to send the project to the Plan Commission to begin the formal development review and approval process. McDonald’s has more than 34,500 locations in more than 100 countries serving more than 69 million people daily. The village’s existing McDonald’s, at 10711 Route 47, will remain.

The other Bubs Subs location is at 260 S. Randall Road, Algonquin.

The new restaurant was initially expected to open in January. Mike Krebs –

Dr. Jon Russell administers a vision test to a patient. afford them. But in many instances, because of a lack of help the clinic has had to prioritize eye check-ups for diabetes ahead of those for poor vision. “Everybody who has diabetes is supposed to go once a year to get an exam,” Russell said. “Most people over there hadn’t gone their whole life. They couldn’t afford it.” With several optometrists and ophthalmologists donating their time, the clinic would be able to get to more of the patients who can’t afford to correct everyday vision problems. Russell said he’s optimistic

more will decide to pitch in once the clinic makes a move later this year to a bigger Crystal Lake location, which is currently under construction. Correcting sight can have a much more drastic effect on a person’s life than most notice, Hoban said. She remembered a time early in the clinic’s history when a child who was new to english came in to correct his vision. Between the language barrier and the poor sight, he’d been incorrectly classified as special ed. “If kids can’t see, they can’t learn,” Hoban said.

Stop the busy work; start the work that matters We live in an age where there is simply too much! Too much information coming at us more quickly than we have any chance of processing it. Too many daily innovations in ways to reach people and interact or react through social media. Too many details to track and too many distractions to think. Our leadership bias has moved to doing vs. thinking. What is so often missing is time to think. When we catch ourselves thinking, we might even feel guilty about wasting time. There is just so much to do! Most of us know when we are doing good work. Good work is the work we do day to day that pays the bills and provides the fulfillment of providing services, goods, and information that is valued and useful. This is work we do to meet the needs of others (if we are successful with it). Doing good work meets our needs as well – our needs for income, steadiness, comfort, and predictability. We are happy when things are running

smoothly and we are producing good work. Good work is important. But then, there’s Great Work. Great Work is work that is going to stretch you personally. It may or may not have anything to do with your daily bread and butter. This is work that is is for you. Work you do for you. Not that others may not like, appreciate, and benefit from it. Those are not the reasons you do it. You do it for you. It is the work that stretches, challenges, and opens you. It takes you away from the daily limits of who you think you are and moves you into a zone of exploration and deeper understanding of yourself, your capabilities, and the world in which you find yourself. When you do Great Work, time seems suspended, practical creative ideas flow easily, your sense of self is coherent and you know that you are doing your “right stuff.” Great Work also can be a time of groping your way through, of confusing and

MOTIVATION Bob Sandidge & Anne Ward contradictory ideas, of uncertainty about things fitting together and working out. Doing Great Work can test your will and perseverance. Your own Great Work may be an elusive idea that seems far out of reach. Work that you will do someday – when you can get enough bankable good work done to buy the time to get down to the creative struggle of producing your Great Work. Great Work may be a lifetime pursuit or happen in a moment. Where are you with your Great Work? On a scale of one to 10, how committed are you to doing the Great Work that is calling you? Is your number high enough to ignite the fire of motivation in you? If not, perhaps you haven’t discovered your

Great Work yet. If it’s a 10, what would need to be different for you to get really engaged with your great work project? The idea of work that matters is explored by Michael Bungay Stainer in his book “Do More Great Work.” Stainer is a consultant and trainer who spends time exploring how Great Work comes into being. He says that we need to start by taking a look at what we are doing now. We all do some bad work, some good work, and even some Great Work. Here’s data from people around the world: 10-40 percent Bad Work, 40-80 percent Good Work, 0-25 percent Great Work. Yes, we all do some bad work. That’s work that wastes our time and does nothing for us or anyone else. Sometimes it seems like we are doing good work when we are actually using bad work to keep us from doing good work. More importantly, we often use good work as an excuse to not get going on our Great Work project.

If you are curious about how to get more Great Work into your life, Stainer’s book has 15 maps that will help you sort out where you are and how to make the choices you need to get more Great Work in your life and even into your organization. Of course, like most good things, doing Great Work will take commitment, motivation and some time for thinking and working. “Do More Great Work – Stop the busywork, and start the work that matters.” (Michael Bungay Stainer – Workman Publishing).

Brake Parts Inc. earns United Way Landmark Award

Robert Cormier Jr. reappointed to chair IBA panel

McHENRY – What can $1 a day do in McHenry County? As the leadership team at Brake Parts Inc. recently learned, it helps one in four people in need throughout McHenry County, according to the United Way of Greater McHenry County. Steve Otten, executive director for the United Way of Greater McHenry County, presented David Overbeeke, president and CEO of BPI, with the United Way Landmark Award, which goes to companies that raise $100,000 or more for the United Way in the year-long fundraising drive. During the award presentation this month, leaders from BPI and the United Way of Greater McHenry Country discussed ways to shine a spotlight on the need within McHenry county, and additional ways to increase business and community support for the United Way campaign. “We truly appreciate the support,” Otten said. “You have to partner with people in order for it to be a victory for everybody. BPI is definitely one of the most valued partners we have in helping us reach our goals.” The group discussed the challenges and opportunities faced by United Way. As he moves forward with his upcoming campaign, Otten said that the ideas discussed during the meeting will help United Way reach out more effectively to the larger community. “The United Way is something that I’ve always participated in,” Overbeeke said. “My wife has a real passion for helping kids, so we’ve been involved for a long time.” Overbeeke said he tries to drive that same mentality at McHenry-based BPI, and it seems to be working. While some people believe only high earners can afford to donate to organiza-

Robert Cormier Jr., executive vice president at Home State Bank N.A., Crystal Lake, recently was reappointed to chair of the Illinois Bankers Association Education Advisory Committee by IBA Chairman Charie A. Zanck, American Community Bank & Trust, Woodstock. As chairman of the Education Advisory Committee, Cormier will assist in recommending strategies for the development, marketing and implementation of educational offerings, and will serve in an adviRobert Cormier Jr. sory role to the IBA Board of Directors on timely and important banking topics. He also will assist in examining the quality of all educational programs offered and marketed by the association to ensure that the professional development needs of all Illinois bankers are met. The Illinois Bankers Association is a full-service trade association dedicated to creating a positive business climate that benefits the entire banking industry and the communities they serve. Founded in 1891, the IBA brings together state and national banks, savings banks, and savings and loan associations of all sizes in Illinois. Collectively, the IBA represents nearly 90 percent of the assets of the Illinois banking industry, which employs more than 100,000 men and women in more than 5,000 offices across the state.

They may give a dollar a week, but it adds up in a hurry,” he said. Overbeeke adds that he hopes the push within his own business inspires other large businesses in McHenry County to recognize the need within the community and follow BPI’s example. “One of four is a lot of people,” Overbeeke said. “If they realized what’s really going on in our community and the true benefit of their giving, I know other businesses would step up and do the right thing.” Otten said the United Way and the community is one big partnership, but it can’t flourish if just a minimal part of the community buys in. “We need to knock on new doors and get other companies to buy in, because that’s where we’re going to succeed and help the

greatest number of people.” Megan Harned, also of the United Way, gave some interesting food for thought and illustrated that turning a life around can happen with a minimal donation. She said that more than 159,000 people are employed in McHenry County. “If everyone gave just a little bit, just a dollar a week, we could raise more than $8 million. When you combine your $52 with another corporation’s $50,000, you have power to do great things.” Harned also said that 90 percent of campaign contributions come from employee and corporate donations, but it if someone doesn’t work for an employer who supports the United Way campaign, he or she may not think of contributing to the United Way. “I think one of the things we have working in our favor is the fact that the money you give stays in McHenry County,” said Otten. He realizes that people want to know where there money is going, and Otten wants them to know that their donations help people specifically in McHenry County.

What to expect from your bond mutual fund By STAN CHOE AP Business Writer NEW YORK – Investing in bond mutual funds is easy. At least, that’s the way it was for decades. Investors could count on steady interest payments. Their funds also benefited from rising bond prices, because interest rates made a three-decade-long march downward since 1981. When yields fell, bond prices rose: Each step lower made the bonds held by mutual funds more attractive because they offered higher rates than newly issued bonds. But the tide has shifted. Many analysts say we have hit a bottom for interest rates, and the yield on the 10-year Treasury note has climbed to 2.5 percent from 1.6 percent at the start of May The rise in rates has led to losses for many bond mutual funds, and it’s something that investors need to get used to, says Rick Rieder. He is chief investment officer of fundamental fixed income portfolios at BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager. He oversees $650 billion in assets, including BlackRock’s Strategic Income Opportunities mutual fund (BASIX), which can own everything from long-term Treasurys to short-term corporate bonds to debt from emerging markets.

Q: What’s a fair return that investors can expect from their primary bond mutual funds? Is not losing money too much to ask? A: For the last 25 or 30 years, people have counted on bonds to provide their interest payments, plus a little bit of price appreciation. People have been investing with that expectation, and if you were just patient, your bond portfolio would work for you. The world has changed. The last couple of months were illustrative of how much the world has changed. It didn’t take a big move in

interest rates to send long-dated Treasurys down 12 percent over a two-month period. It became evident, quickly, that returns in bond funds are going to be more volatile, even high-quality bonds. Over the coming couple of years, people should count on hopefully the coupon return, which in today’s environment is a little over 2 percent, with a potential for it being in a moderately rising rate environment, which could mean zero or slightly negative returns.

Q: What’s the worst-case scenario for bond funds? Could it be as bad as 2008 was for stock mutual funds, when the financial crisis meant the Standard & Poor’s 500 index lost 37 percent? A: I don’t think you’re going to see a crisis in bonds. Interest rates are not going to move up dramatically: We are in a low-inflation environment, global economic growth is slow, monetary policy is still very easy. I think what you’ll see is an environment of gradually increasing rates, but that will lead to negative returns for a core, passive bond fund. Think of this year, where the average bond fund has had a 4 percent loss. That’s a pretty big move. Q: Does that mean that buying and holding a bond mutual fund is a bad idea now? A: I think people are diversifying now to bond funds that can be flexible and tactical, which try to keep their sensitivity to interest rates down. They’re not relying so much on government bonds. They’re also investing in European bonds, at times, when valuations make sense. I think we live in a world where the way to make money in fixed income is to be flexible. Q: Long-term bond mutual funds get hurt the most by rises in interest rates, because their holdings are locked into

the lower rates for a longer period. Does it make sense for anyone to own a longterm bond fund today? A: People should still own long-dated bonds, and core bond funds still make sense within a diversified portfolio. People haven’t diversified as much over the prior few years as they should have, because they haven’t had to. Not only have rates been trending down with slower growth, but you’ve had the Federal Reserve continue to push rates lower. I don’t say that you should sell all of your long-term bonds, but people should diversify to have less interest-rate sensitivity in their portfolio.

Q: How much more will the yield on the 10-year Treasury rise if the Federal Reserve slows its bond-buying stimulus program later this year, as many economists expect? A: We think fair value on the 10-year is about 3 percent. So at today’s levels, you’ve already eliminated two thirds of the distortion created by quantitative easing. As the Fed starts reducing, as you get into the beginning of next year, it could be in the low 3s. For a more significant move, we would have to see a significant increase in inflation and the assumption that unemployment was improving dramatically, so that the Fed would have to move the federal funds rate. I don’t think either of those is at our doorstep. Q: Are there any widespread mistakes you see individual investors making? A: People are very slow to recognize how different the world is going to be going forward. I think people underestimate that fixed income could be more volatile than the equity market, and historically we have never seen anything like that. I am surprised that people are still very comfortable with their traditional long-dated bonds.

Creature comfort is booming Your best friends keep getting better. More dogs and other animals are going to work as animal-assisted and pet therapists. Even a therapeutic, interactive robot created by the Japanese is helping reduce stress for health-care patients – Paro, who looks like a fluffy white seal, responds to voice, touch, light and temperature. The good news is these animal helpers – real and robotic – are creating more jobs while transforming the well-being of people who need it most: those with at-home care or who are in assisted living or care facilities, hospitals, schools, correctional facilities and mental institutions. Companion creatures give therapy simply by being with you. Dogs, cats and rabbits sit with you, cuddle, play, walk and rest by your side. Cats calmingly purr. Horses carry you. Fish dazzle and calm by gliding through water. Animals allow you to groom, feed, watch and care for them,

TAKING CARE Jeanette Palmer and the result is longer, healthier, happier lives for you and them – plus a field of research and vocation that’s booming. The U.S. Department of Labor expects therapy jobs and positions, including pet and animal-assisted therapy, to grow more than 27 percent in the next decade. More than 90 percent of Americans in both pet-owning and non-petowning households told the American Humane Society in a 2012 survey that they believe an animal companion improves lives, especially the lives of people living alone, those who need at-home care, senior citizens, people who are handicapped, and young children. The positive effects of pet and animal-assisted therapy are undeniable. As adult home care providers, we’ve seen pets ease loneliness and

give a purpose for getting out of bed. Now science and medicine prove that time with a pet, something that doesn’t have to cost a lot and can help you right at home, can be one of the best ways to boost your physical, mental and emotional health. As more people see the overall health benefits of pet and animal-assisted therapy, the practice will continue to grow throughout the U.S. It’s inspiring to see the elderly light up when they interact with a pet. Their everyday lives are enriched because of the companionship pets provide.

After the Interview: Four Ways to Follow Up By Margaret Steen

You had your interview, and the way it ended left you hopeful. Now comes what is often the most agonizing part of the job hunt: waiting for the hiring manager to call. But you still have some control over the process. Experts offer the following advice on maximizing your chances for success:

Send Thank-You Notes Don’t stress too much over whether your interview thank-you letter is emailed or handwritten. The most important thing is to send it. “Even if you think you’ve got it in the bag, there are people who expect that letter,” says Laura DeCarlo, president of Career Directors International, a global professional association of resume writers and career coaches. The kind of note to send depends on the situation. Peggy McKee, founder of Career Confidential, prefers thank-you emails sent within a day of the interview. “A quick follow-up indicates interest,” McKee says. But consider the company cul-

ture when following up. Sometimes a mailed letter will be more appropriate -- for instance, if the company is an old-fashioned, traditional one. But if you’re applying for something like a social media marketing position, then email your follow-up note. Your post-interview thank-you letter should be “a typical sales letter” with three parts, DeCarlo says: Thank the interviewer. Reiterate why you’re a good fit. Close by saying you’re looking forward to the next step. Even if you send the note by mail, you may prefer to type it so you have room to make your case.

and brief, most interviewers are more likely to be impressed by your perseverance, communication skills and interest in the job. “Candidates need to quit worrying about how they’re perceived and be more worried about making people see how they can contribute to the organization,” McKee says. The key is to keep your messages positive. Don’t sound accusatory -- just remind the interviewer of your conversation, say you enjoyed it and ask where they are in the process. It may help to prepare a script ahead of time.

Go into Recovery Mode Break Through the Silence The interviewer said she’d let you know by Tuesday if you made it to the next round of interviews. It’s now Thursday, and you haven’t heard anything. What’s going on? It’s possible you didn’t make the cut. But it’s equally likely that the interviewer just got busy. What should you do next? Call or email. If you don’t get a reply in a few days, try again. Yes, you might occasionally annoy a frazzled hiring manager. But as long as your messages are polite

Perhaps you feel that you didn’t make the best impression in the interview. The followup is your chance to recover. “Tell them you’re going to provide them with additional resources,” McKee says. If you can send documentation of your abilities -- or even get references to send notes on your behalf -- do so. But if your reason for thinking you blew the interview is something minor, like spilling your coffee, ignore it. “If you draw attention to your embarrassment about little things, it might lead

TODAY - Your talent and imagination are likely to take you right to the top in your field of endeavor in the coming months. Strive to use these gifts with every ounce of commitment that you have. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Have fun and enjoy yourself, but not at the expense of others. If you singe anyone’s fingers in your quest for happiness, your pleasure will quickly turn sour. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Even though major accomplishments are possible, you might still fall short of your mark. Self-doubts could overwhelm you if you’re fool enough to

believe them. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Be fair in your dealings with others, but don’t go overboard by making self-penalizing concessions. There’s nothing wrong with expecting good things to happen for you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- This should be a rewarding day as long as you don’t do anything at the last minute to take the edge off your victory. It’s not smart to alter something that’s working so well. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Just because conditions in general tend to favor you today, that doesn’t mean you should lower

your guard. If you do, your fragile success might collapse. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- There’s no need for you to embellish your achievements. Should you do something worthy of praise, the events will speak loudly for themselves and the accolades will be justified. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t be stingy in involvements with your friends. Yet, by the same token, don’t think that you have to break the bank in order to win acceptance. Let moderation be your watchword. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It’s

OK to be proud of your achievements when speaking to your friends, but don’t call a project finished when you still have abundant loose ends that must be tied down. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- In order to appease family and friends today, you might feel obligated to promise them much more than you can deliver. It’s best to be honest with both them and yourself. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Even if asked, it might not be too wise to advise a friend on how s/he should handle a financial matter. Although you’ll mean well, your suggestion could make matters worse.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don’t make the mistake of trying to force your opinions on someone who doesn’t want to hear them. Something that you feel strongly about might nonetheless be totally wrong for your listener. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Poor eating habits and a lack of exercise could be at the base of your sluggishness. Analyze your lifestyle honestly, and do something about the flaws that you find.

The high cost of skinny-dip supervision


few years ago, my wife and I debated the merits of having a swimming pool in the backyard. We made a list of pros and cons, and the con side won out. But thanks to a news story I recently read, I think we might have to revisit that old list and scrawl another check mark on the pro side. That’s because a man living in Crossville, Tenn., had a visit in late June from a man and a woman who asked if the woman could take a skinny dip in the man’s pool. The guy accompanying the woman said he needed to run out for some cigarettes while his lady friend splashed around naked. The guy with the pool agreed, and he was considerate enough to supervise the maiden as she bathed al fresco. After all, when it comes to using a pool, you can’t put too high a premium on safety, can you? Especially when you’re a responsible guy in your mid-50’s, and the naked lady in your pool is only about 30, young enough to be your daughter. I’m sure he felt some deep obligation to see to it somebody else’s daughter had a safe bare-bottom splash in his pool. It takes a village. In time, the young lady’s friend returned from getting his cigarettes, and he honked the horn. The nice pool man handed the young lady a towel and helped her out of the pool. “I escorted her outside and invited her to church, but she said she didn’t have time for that,” the man said. “She wasn’t ready for that.” The news article doesn’t say whether or not the nice pool man went to church alone after that. He may have wanted to offer thanks for the wondrous ways in which the Lord’s grace works. Or maybe he wanted to swing by the confessional.

But when he went inside the house, he found he had been cleaned out. Jewelry, cash, a handgun and some prescription drugs – all gone. More than a thousand bucks worth of valuables. The man called the police, who were eager to pursue the case. They believe the skinny dip, the disappearance of the naked woman’s friend to “buy cigarettes,” and the theft were no coincidence. They believe the woman’s friend went in by the front door of the house to burgle while the naked woman bubbled through the pool. It takes good police work to make a connection like that. Of course, the nice pool man can’t say for certain it was the naked lady’s friend who broke into the house. He was busy supervising the skinny dip, as any responsible, church-going pool owner would do when a young lady peels down to her possibilities and takes a dip. Though the cops haven’t yet found the perps, they have systematically eliminated several suspects – no doubt while employing some exhaustive strippeddown lineups of likely young women. Good police work takes time. In the meantime, the nice pool man is trying to pick up the pieces of his shattered life. “They cleared me out, and I just feel violated,” he said. And who could blame him for feeling that way? Who knew a well-supervised skinny dip could lead to any sort of violation? The worst loss, the nice pool man said, was the theft of his handgun. He formerly used it as a Mississippi deputy, and he had planned to pass it on to his grandchildren. It’s always the children who suffer the most from crimes like this, isn’t it? Still, when they are old enough to understand, he will sit them down and

tell them why they won’t be inheriting Grandpa’s heater after all. He will tell them how an unscrupulous felon broke into the front door while Grandpa sat out back and did his duty, supervising a young lady’s bare-bottom swim to see to it no harm came to her 38-specials. If she needed rescue, he would have been ready to dive in after her – even if it meant getting his clothes wet – and haul her onto the deck to perform chest compressions, or maybe even some life-saving mouth-to-mouth. And when he has explained all that to them, the nice pool man’s grandchildren will realize their Grandpa is really a hero after all. They wouldn’t trade that knowledge for anything, not even for an old cop gun. Their eyes will glow with pride every time they think of Grandpa standing close watch over that young naked lady in the pool. They will hope maybe someday they, too, might be able to rise to such a level of selfless sacrifice. And how can you put a price on that kind of respect from your grandkids? That’s got to be worth a thousand stolen bucks, any day. Anyway, when I told my wife this story, I said we needed to pull out that old pool debate sheet and put another check mark in the pro column. We might even put up a sign: Skinny-Dip Safe Zone. But my wife just rolled her eyes and shook her head. There’s no understanding how a woman’s mind works when it comes to a man’s willingness to accept the burden of heroism.

Crusted Salmon With Avocado

Placemats have some panache By KIM COOK The Associated Press

AP photo

Crusted Salmon cooks perfectly every time By BONNIE S. BENWICK The Washington Post It’s difficult to overcook salmon when you prepare it this way: lightly seasoned with a touch of ground ginger, rolled and wrapped in prosciutto that crisps in the pan and in the oven. Lay the slices of salmon on a bed of dressed greens and you’ve got another plateful of warmth and crunch. You’ll need kitchen twine for the salmon. Serve with warm corn bread or focaccia.

Crusted Salmon With Avocado and Red Onion Salad 2 or 3 servings For the salmon: 4 or 5 thin slices prosciutto One piece (8 to 10 ounces) skinless center-cut salmon fillet, about an inch thick Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper Dash ground ginger 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil For the salad: 1/2 lime 1/4 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 6 cups mixed greens 1/2 ripe avocado 1/2 small red onion Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Have a medium cast-iron skillet or other ovenproof skillet at hand. For the salmon: Lay an 8-to-10-inch-long piece of plastic wrap on a clean work surface.

Arrange the prosciutto pieces on the plastic wrap so they are slightly overlapping. Season the salmon lightly with salt and pepper and the ground ginger, then lay the fillet across the prosciutto slices. Lift the plastic wrap to begin rolling the prosciutto around the salmon. Use the kitchen twine to tie the prosciuttowrapped salmon roll at 1-inch intervals. Wrap the salmon roll tightly in the plastic wrap; this will help hold its shape. Heat the teaspoon of oil in the skillet over medium heat for about 30 seconds, tilting to coat the surface of the skillet. Discard the plastic wrap from the salmon roll, then place the roll in the skillet. Cook for about 8 minutes total, turning to sear different sections, until the prosciutto is lightly browned all over. Transfer the skillet to the oven; cook for 4 or 5 minutes, until the interior temperature of the salmon registers 120 to 125 degrees F. Transfer to the stove top and tent loosely with aluminum foil; the salmon’s temperature will rise another 5 to 10 degrees. While the salmon rests, make the salad: Squeeze the lime into a jar with a tight-fitting lid (watch for seeds), then add the mustard and oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Seal and shake to form an emulsified dressing. Place the greens in a mixing bowl. Peel the avocado half and cut the flesh into thin slices. Cut the red onion into very thin slices. Add to the greens along with half of the dressing and toss lightly to coat. Divide between plates. Discard the kitchen twine from the prosciuttosalmon roll. Cut crosswise into 1-inch slices, arranging them on top of each salad. Drizzle each portion with the remaining dressing. Serve right away.

The placemat is a favorite at many dinner tables: The often-whimsical plastic version catches the slip of spaghetti from a youngster’s fork, while a nice cotton placemat elevates the dining experience just a little without having to set down a whole tablecloth. There’s something civilized about setting an individual dining place with a frame of sorts. An heirloom

set of fine linen placemats are a quick and elegant way to dress the table. For something unusual, mats made of faux or real tropical leaves, lashed bamboo sticks, glitter, pebbles or squares of birch bark create a textural platform for plate and meal. Placemats are a relatively inexpensive addition to dining-room decor, and also can be used on portable trays or big coffee tables if meals are served unconventionally. Here are a few new options from retailers and designers:

New York designer Sandy Chilewich continues to experiment with her woven vinyl material, producing an array of textured mats in neutrals, metallics and colors. There’s a hand-silkscreened, brushed-dot pattern (right), a delicate filigreed foil mat, faux printed cowhide, and a hip mod croc pattern in red, black and tan. ( There are more woven mats at CB2: a selection of vinyl, basketweave squares in on-trend hues like carbon, chartreuse, orange and white (left). Textile designer Liora Manne’s signature felting technique of layering and interlocking acrylic fibers is used in two very different placemats. A sophisticated plaid mat in layered grays and lime yellow pops when set with white china. And her laser-cut, geometric Corte mats in peacock and fire engine red pack a playful punch. ( Crate & Barrel’s eco-friendly dyes are used to make two pretty, mid-century, patterned placemats. Dax features a digital linear print in teals and greens, while Gus (right) has a starburst pattern in muted sunset hues. For a more feminine look, there’s Oona, an organdy and sateen cotton eyeletpatterned placemat, and the delicate Capiz shell mat, a luminous circle. ( San Francisco-based Lian Ng’s PopMat paper placemats are inspired by children’s popup books. Made of recycled paper, Ng’s mats come in packs of 10 and have a spot to write a guest’s name. There are many designs that would work well for themed affairs or just for fun – butterflies, balloons, cakes, trees (left), even a troupe of safari animals. (

4 Softball league scores

one for the good guys Game to raise money for McHenry food pantry By JAMI KUNZER

In this case, the good guys do always win. As part of an annual effort to raise money for the FISH of McHenry Food Pantry, the McHenry Christian Fellowship Softball League is hosting its Good Guys vs. Good Guys softball game at 4 p.m. July 27 at McHenry Township Park, 3703 N. Richmond Road, Johnsburg. Area police officers and firefighters will take on the coaches from the church league, with raffle drawings every third out during the 9-inning game. Among the raffle items are a color television, a diamond necklace, a weekend getaway to Sen. Pamela Althoff’s Springfield apartment and other prizes, said Doug Peterson, the league president. And with donations, local “celebrities” can sign up to be a “Celebrity at Bat.” “We’re trying to get local business leaders and elected officials and educators and such,” he said. “If they want to help the cause, they can sponsor

Hot food provided by the McHenry Moose Lodge, a corn roast and ice cream is offered. Last year’s event raised about $9,800.

Couple tackle Ice Age Trail Former McHenry resident plans to write book about 1,200-mile hike By JAMI KUNZER Of the 11 National Scenic Trails in the country, few have hiked the Ice Age Trail in Wisconsin, and none have written a book about the experience. A native of McHenry hopes to change that. Sean Quinn and his girlfriend, Kassie Kolden, are determined to hike the roughly 1,200-mile trail, which winds from the Lake Michigan shoreline through the entire state to the northwest part of Wisconsin. The two, who both work full time, hike portions of the trail on the weekends and have done so since December. Their goal was to reach the 400th mile this weekend, which would make them a third of the way done. They’ve hiked up to 31 miles at a stretch and hope to finish by the fall of 2014.

Now living in Racine, Wis., Quinn always has wanted to hike scenic trails, having previously worked for the U.S. National Park Service. He thought about taking on the Pacific Crest Trail in the Sierra Nevada and Cascade mountain ranges. “Just the logistics of it never really worked for me at the time because I was in school or working,” he said. When he moved to Wisconsin to work as an administrative officer with the Milwaukee VA Medical Center, he discovered the Ice Age Trail. “I’ve gone one (a scenic trail) more or less in my backyard, so why not take advantage of this?” he thought. “I’ve been a hiker my entire adult live. I love being in the outdoors and getting to see places most people will never get an opportunity to see and experience and amazing things along the way.”

See TRAIL, page 7

Sean Quinn and his girlfriend, Kassie Kolden, started their journey hiking the Ice Age Trail in December. They have hiked almost 400 miles since then and hope to complete the 1,200-mile trek next year.

Follow the trail

Continued from page 6 In his hiking experiences, he’s run into wolverines, which are endangered species, and seen bald eagles fight. On the Ice Age Trail, he’s passed numerous landmarks, such as the National Registry of Historic Places’ birthplace of the ice cream sundae in Two Rivers, Wis., and Holy Hill, the most visited cathedral in the Midwest. Near Milton, Wis., he’s hiked by the campsite that Abe Lincoln stayed at when he was a soldier during the Blackhawk Wars and one of the 11 nationally recognized sites of the Underground Railroad. “You never know what you’re going to run into on a trail,” he said. The more he looked into the Ice Age Trail, the more intrigued he became by the lack of information on it. Although all other National Scenic Trails have books written about them by those who’ve hiked them, the Ice Age Trail has never been written about in that way, he said. Since it was brought into being in 1979, only 77 known people have hiked it entirely, he said, compared with the 300 or 400 a year who hike other trails, such as the Appalachian, which is twice as long. “It might just be that not many people know about it,” he said. “I’m hoping to raise awareness.” He takes notes along the way, and he hopes to have a book out by the summer of 2015. He and Kolden typically drive two vehicles to the trails, parking one at the beginning and the other at their destination. They then hike from one car to the other. The gas money, food, clothing and hotel expenses are putting a strain on his finances, so he’s created a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for his efforts.

To contribute to Sean Quinn’s efforts to hike the Ice Age Trail and write a book about it, visit His goal is to reach $3,000, though with about a week left, he had only raised $615 at projects/308514752/hiking-the-ice-agetrail-book-to-follow. The fundraising also would make it easier for him to get the book published, he said. But he’ll hike the trail regardless of how the effort turns out. “It might just take us longer if we don’t get the funding,” he said. Compared with others, the trail is not difficult as it stretches through plains, oak savannahs and sections of roads, he said. The toughest parts so far have included an area of rolling hills and a steeper section in Devils Lake, Wis., with stairs that are about 500 feet high. The couple also has had to wade through waste-deep water and balance on the wooden planks of broken bridges. An avid walker before the effort, Kolden has been up to the challenge. The two previously had gone on a backpacking trip or two. Quinn, who also enjoys mountain and rock climbing, has dropped 26 pounds so far from the experience. “I like to do things where I don’t really have to rely on a lot of gear,” he said. “I’m not someone into four-wheeling or things like that, where you’ve got the loud noises that scare wildlife and gasoline. ... It kind of destroys the nature experience of things. [With hiking], it’s more like you’re becoming part of nature.”

McHenry calligrapher spends weekends as ‘Scribe to the Queen’ at the Bristol Renaissance Faire Story by JAMI KUNZER


uring the week, she crafts “Calligraphy by Linda” from the studio in her McHenry home. On the weekends, she’s the “Scribe to the Queen.” Pen in hand, Linda Medeen’s red velvet dress swished around her ankles as she greeted her customers. “Greetings, M’Lady. ... This is my throne,” she said as she sat down in a long-backed, velvet trimmed chair outside the shop she and her husband, Vern, built nearly 10 years ago at the Bristol Renaissance Faire. Working from a more primitive location at the faire before that, the couple of 21 years has been part of the unique attraction near Kenosha, Wis., for 14 seasons.


Calligraphy pieces are displayed for costumers at Calligraphy by Linda at the Bristol Renaissance Faire.

Dressed in a period costume, Linda Medeen (left) of McHenry has a necklace painted around her neck by Joe White, who goes by the name Bluebeard, while getting ready for work at her calligraphy shop at the Bristol Renaissance Faire in Kenosha, Wis. Bluebeard paints Linda’s neck every weekend morning at the faire.

ABOVE: Medeen (left) of McHenry and her husband, Vern, wait for customers outside their shop at the Bristol Renaissance Faire. RIGHT: A costumed guest walks past Calligraphy by Linda, the shop they have operated at the faire for the past 14 seasons. Set in a summer day in 1574 when Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth visited the English hamlet of Bristol, the faire transforms 30 wooded acres into a world of 16th century arts, games, food, music, comedy, dance and crafts. All involved – from the performers to the vendors – become inhabitants of that world. Their clothing, their wares and their words all must

represent the 16th century as more than 200,000 visitors stop by every summer. “We really strive to make sure when you step into Bristol, you’re truly transported away from the modern world,” said Julie McMillin, publicity and social media director for the Faire. The effort is not taken lightly. Those involved can even go to

classes in June to learn the ways of that 16th century world. Anyone who attends 40 hours earns 3 hours of college credit, McMillin said. About 75 percent of the wares sold by the Faire’s more than 175 vendors must be homemade. Some of those vendors live at the faire throughout the summer, sleeping in rooms above their shops or in trailers while creating their crafts

throughout the week. The Medeens used to travel throughout the weekends to display their work at craft shows. Recruited by Faire organizers years ago, they now call the “village” home on the weekends. “We’re a family,” Linda said of all those involved with the Faire. They take care of one another, help out when someone’s sick.

She talked as an artist who goes solely by the name “Bluebeard” painted a rose necklace onto her neck. They met him years ago when he strolled in the back of their shop. He now sleeps in that back room during the summer. Bluebeard paints Linda’s neck every weekend morning, and has done so since he overheard her say she’d like a necklace that stands out. “Wait till you see the final product,” Linda said as Bluebeard finished up with a sprinkle of glitter swished across the paint. “Now I’m his walking advertisement.” Known for the artistry in her handmade notecards and other best-sellers, such as her “Meaning of Names” creations, Linda has created products for the Obamas, Rosie O’Donnell and countless customers across the country. Her pen-crafted skill still resonates in a world of keys and touch pads. Her artistry blends with the Faire as smoothly as the ink on paper. For both her and her customers, it’s a throwback to the days of hand-written letters, a reminder to appreciate beauty. “I’m the most impatient person you’ll ever meet,” Linda said. “However, when I do calligraphy, I have to slow down. It keeps me focused, relaxed. I like the end look. When I’m done, I can’t believe I did it. It turns out so well.” From her throne outside the shop displaying 20 years worth of artwork – hand-crafted prayers, greeting cards and homages to parents, sisters, brothers, children, aunts, uncles, those in the military and others – she greets those passing by. As red feathers stick out of her hat, she’ll ask their names, carefully spell them out on the back of her

business cards. As many as 30,000 people might stop by on a single weekend day, she said. Her husband, Vern, and assistant, Karen Peterson, help, with Peterson doing the calligraphy she can’t do, such as Gothic lettering. The three rarely leave the shop, although they see plenty from their storefront view. They point out a man donned in feathers, a Santa Claus, George Washington, the fairies that pitter patter by daily. “When it rains, they strip down to their underwear and wash with a bar of soap,” Linda said of the many characters at the Faire. Every afternoon, a parade marches through with the Queen on horseback. Their favorite is the Lady of the Court bringing up the rear, they say. Her teeth missing, she’s dressed in rags. Someone always will ask, “Are you the queen?” “No,” she’ll answer. “She’s up there on her high horse.” His hair and beard painted green for “luck” or “envy,” depending on when you ask him, Vern wears pointy black shoes and a hat with a worm-eating crow stationed on top. “Some people call me an elf,” he said with a smile. “Some people call me a fool.” A mechanic by trade, he sold his equipment when Linda’s business took off and she needed extra hands. “The hardest part of the Faire is getting ready for it every week,” Linda said. During the week, the couple returns to their “children” – two dogs, two cats and an occasional pregnant dog they foster through an animal shelter – and their everyday existence. Bristol has become their summer escape, a place close to home, but far away at the same time. “This is not work for us,” Linda said. “This is our pleasure.”

Dust-up over vacuum clouds friendship 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 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 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-year-old 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. Dear Abby: My mother refuses to get a cellphone. I know she isn’t afraid of technology (she has a tablet and an e-reader). Her explanation for how to handle an emergency is: “We will handle it like we did before there were cellphones.” I had to remind


her of the limited availability of pay phones or courtesy phones nowadays. Abby, it bothers me she chooses not to have one. I find it hurtful that an easy way to handle family emergencies is being ignored. It’s a simple solution. A prepaid cellphone with a big-numbered keyboard would be a good way for us to be on the same page. Any advice? – Out Of Touch In

Glens Falls, N.Y. Dear Out Of Touch: Yes. Stop nagging your mother because it’s not working. Experience is the most effective teacher. Your mother will not appreciate what a blessing a cellphone can be until she learns the hard way what it’s like to need one and not have one. This may seem negative, but it’s the truth.

Denial used to twist logic, blame others for drug use Mr. Atwater: Both my husband and my son have addiction problems but always maintain that I am overreacting and have caused the problems that caused them to drink or use drugs. I know it sounds ridiculous, but if you live with someone for a long time and they believe what they’re saying, you start to think maybe they’re right and you’re the crazy one. As it turns out, I am a little crazy but not in the way they say. They also maintain a person can be addicted and decide not to be addicted anymore. They prove

this by quitting drinking or, in my son’s case, drugging for periods of time, and then some “reason” comes along, usually something I’ve done or not done, and we’re off to the races again. My son has even been in rehab twice and still keeps this way of thinking. Each time we re-start the race, the ending is worse, but they don’t see it. Can you say something about this problem? Dear Reader: I heard about a young actor who recently died of an overdose described as a “former addict.” Saying “former addict” or “former alcoholic” is like saying “genu-

ine imitation” or “lactose-free milk.” If you say it fast enough and with enough confidence, it can sound plausible, but that doesn’t make it true. Addiction is a disease that, like most chronic conditions, will get worse over time without treatment. Chronic illnesses can be treated so there are periods of remission, but they are never considered cured. This information isn’t new regarding addictive disease. In fact, it’s been common knowledge to the medical community since the World Health Organization made a statement to that effect

in 1950. But if we are dealing with addiction, we are also dealing with a highly misunderstood symptom called denial. Denial is a virulent form of self-deception, an ability to rationalize beyond the range of nonaddicted folks. Denial can make big things small and small things big, adjust responsibility for actions so the responsibility never lands at the feet of the denier, and twist the thinking process in numerous and subtle ways that will always result in a reason to use alcohol or drugs. I have heard the phrase “cun-

ning, baffling and powerful,” used to describe alcoholism. Addictive disease isn’t something you want to battle with by yourself. Like the alcoholic or addict, you, as you mentioned, are “a little crazy,” and that craziness can be far more harmful to you than you might think. I would suggest if you haven’t already looked into counseling, do so with a qualified addictions counselor and check out an Al Anon meeting tonight.

Gem Talk •


By Suzanne Cannon

I have a red coral pendant from my grandmother and would like to buy a pair of earrings to match. I have checked everywhere and no one seems to carry coral jewelry anymore. Is it just out of style? Coral was once a popular organic gem which is formed by tiny animals called polyps. These polyps deposit layers of a limestone skeleton that slowly creates the underwater coral reefs. These coral reefs support 25% of all marine species. Corals growth rate is 0.2-2.0cm per year and takes 7-10 years to reach maturity, however, research shows that it should not be harvested until it is 98 years old in order to sustain a healthy population. Issues like warming, pollution, fishing, tourism & over harvesting are just a few examples that make the environment for coral growth extremely vulnerable. Nearly 30% of the world’s tropical corals have been destroyed since the ‘80’s. Some coral species (black & blues) are protected from human harvesting but the red & pinks are not. This has created a global exploitation that has made the Italian, French & Spanish coast no longer commercially viable. While it is still legal to harvest the reds & pinks, a group called SeaWeb has started a campaign to call on jewelers & designers to stop purchasing the gem. I recommend that you call your local antique stores or resale shops in order to locate the earrings. You will also be supporting the Sea Web’s campaign to help protect this precious gem by purchasing something that was pre-owned. The style of an older set of coral earrings will probably be a better match for your grandmothers’ pendant anyway. Suzanne Cannon, Graduate Gemologist Email jewelry questions to: or

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


“RED 2” HH STARRING: Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Helen Mirren PLOT: Retired spies Willis and Malkovich are on the run again when they are implicated in a Cold War-era plot to detonate a nuclear bomb in Moscow. One of Willis’ old lames, a Russian agent played by Catherine Zeta-Jones appears, driving his girlfriend (Parker) crazy with jealousy. RATING: PG-13 for pervasive action and violence including frenetic gunplay, and for some language and drug material TIME: 1 hour, 56 minutes VERDICT: This follow-up to the surprise 2010 hit “RED” repeats the central premise of an action movie with a retirement-age cast, and that joke wears thin immediately in a plot that refuses to make sense. Good guys and bad guys switch sides at a dizzying pace. The action scenes are charmingly small-scale, and the European locales are pretty. But director Dean Parisot has a heavy hand for comedy, and attempts at black humor often have appalling results. – Jeffrey Westhoff,

RATINGS HHHH - Excellent HHH - Recommended HH - Not recommended H - Awful thematic elements TIME: 1 hour, 35 minutes VERDICT: An attractively designed but narratively challenged, one-note film, “Turbo” skews younger than the norm for big animated features these days and has limited appeal for little girls. Of course, the message of the film, as with so many other kid-inspirational cartoons and other fantasies, is that no dream is too big, you can do anything if you set your mind to it, etc., etc. Unfortunately, the real embedded lesson of Turbo is that, if you’re too small or weak or otherwise incapable of greatness, you have a shot to win if you’re juiced. The ultimate destination – Indianapolis – is inevitable, but it takes a long time to get there, given a script that is short on invention and long on largely unfunny yacking. – Todd

Starlets crush on ’60s style By SAMANTHA CRITCHELL The Associated Press

T • Sunday, July 21, 2013

he young stars of Disney Channel’s new “Teen Beach Movie” enjoyed putting on the ‘60s two-piece bikinis a la Annette Funicello so much they wanted to keep them. They also swooned over cheerful prints and crushed on high-waist shorts. The movie debuted Friday, just in time for the important back-to-school season. Maia Mitchell and Grace Phipps, potential tastemakers for eager teen shoppers, seem to have an appreciation – and knowledge – of retro fashion, and can see beyond it just being just plain “old.” “The entire decade of the ’60s had so much style, more than I think we have nowadays,” says Phipps, who wore one of her grandmother’s vintage dresses to the film’s red-carpet premiere. “Teen Beach Movie,” which is a riff on “West Side Story” with a backdrop of “Beach Blanket Bingo,” largely relies on costumes, coupled with music, to put viewers in a time and place when most of them weren’t yet born. “The base of it all was fun in the sun. Everyone is having great fun here, and that fuels fantasy,” costume designer Ruth Carter said. “Fashion can connect families. You see how the kids wear their hair now, it’s not so different than how their parents wore it when their parents were kids. TUNE IN It’s good for kids to see that Did you miss Friday’s parents liked to have fun, premiere of “Teen Beach wear the trends of the day.” Movie?” Catch the reairing And, Carter asks: Who – at 7 p.m. today on now or then – doesn’t love Disney Channel. the perfect T-shirt paired with cutoff shorts? Pointy-toe pumps, ankle- and capri-length skinny pants and bubble-gum patterns are other looks that would resonate with today’s teenagers, she says. That demographic has some serious shoppers, but their wallets often aren’t very deep. They are looking for the few items that will help them make a strong style statement without going out too far on a limb, adds Louise Roe, stylist and host of TV’s “Fashion Star.” She crafted outfits for a fashion shoot based on the movie. “The teen beach look is affordable and attainable.” To keep it modern, pair something – or two or three things – from the ‘60s with something new, she suggests, perhaps some on-trend colored skinny jeans with a fruit-print sleeveless shirt tied at the waist and ballet flats, or a polka-dot top, denim shorts and gladiator-style flat sandals. The best time to go back in fashion history is when we’ve moved far enough away from it, Roe says. “Once you’ve done it, you don’t want to do it again. Leave it for someone else.” That puts 19-year-old Mitchell in the clear. “I’m obsessed with retro fashion. My whole wardrobe is vintage- inspired. I’m not a big fan of the neon that’s a big trend. I’m more classic, so I knew I’d be superexcited for this role because I knew I’d love the costumes.” She thinks that the prevailing silhouette, which hugged the body without being too revealing, would be flattering to many body types.

“I was able to have fun, even in the two-pieces. They were body conscious and showed your curves, but they were for more body types. You can move around in these bathing suits and have fun,” Mitchell said. That, she said, is likely the key to the longevity of the ’60s look. Her favorite suit was the orange bikini with a seashell-style top and a frilly, modest bottom. The movie’s bosses wouldn’t let her take it home because they were afraid they’d need it for reshoots, she said, but the white one with a tiny pink floral pattern she bought for herself could have been part of the wardrobe. Meanwhile, Phipps has her own cheeky lemonprint suit that “looks a little like a tablecloth in 1958,” but she loves wearing it with a huge floppy hat and button-down shirt. Neither Mitchell nor Phipps, however, were huge fans of the built-in bras in the swimwear and

bustier tops back in the day. “That built-in bust doesn’t need to be revisited,” declared Phipps. Carter sees a silver lining in the more structured clothes, though. “No one’s jeans were sagging. It’s a look at how life would be without sagging pants.”
