NIU officials spread word on D.C.trip By FELIX SARVER fsarver@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Northern Illinois University had a chance to shine at the nation’s capital this week. NIU President Douglas Baker, along with a team of staff and students, went to Washington, D.C. on Monday for a two-day trip to demonstrate their accomplishments to members of Congress. While there, they also discussed issues affecting higher education, such as rising student loan interest rates. For Baker, the trip was an opportunity to learn what legislators’ priorities were for Illinois and see how the university could help address them. “I wanted to get the university officials to know those issues in greater depth,” he said. Building the economy through job creation and resolving student loan issues were two priorities he saw for Congress. Recent- Douglas ly, federal student loan interest Baker rates have doubled from 3.4 per- NIU president cent to 6.8 percent. The U.S. Senate approved a bill to lower the interest rate Wednesday. A vote on the bill is expected soon by the House. During the research roundtable, NIU faculty delivered several presentations on improving medical technology, educational engagement and business innovation.

ONLINE THE BOOM ’46-’64

The children born after World War II are the largest generation ever born in the United States. They are the baby boomers, and have lived through some of the biggest social changes in American history. The Daily Chronicle presents a three-day series on baby boom-

ers, who are turning 65 at a rate of 10,000 per day. Articles will focus on: Thursday: Family – Many boomers are turning their attention to caring for their aging parents while also helping their adult children in a down

economy. Today: Health – As they age, many boomers are dealing with more health issues. Saturday: Employment – As boomers approach retirement age, many are examining whether they can afford to stop working.

WASHINGTON – After 9/11, there were no shades of gray. There are plenty now. The vigorous debate over the collection of millions of Americans’ phone records, underlined by a narrow House vote upholding the practice, buried any notion that it’s out of line, even unpatriotic, to challenge the national security efforts of the government. Democrats and Republicans, conservatives and liberals, joined in common cause against the Obama administration’s aggressive surveillance, falling just short Wednesday night against a similarly jumbled and determined coalition of leaders and lawmakers who supported it. It’s not every day you see Republican Speaker John Boehner and Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi facing off together against their own parties’ colleagues – with an assist from Rep. Michele Bachmann, no less – to help give President Barack Obama what he wanted. But that’s what it took to overcome efforts to restrict the National Security Agency’s surveillance program. After the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, President George W. Bush warned the world “either you are with us or you are with the terrorists,” period, and those few politicians who objected to anything the U.S. wanted to do for its national security looked like oddballs. That remarkable political consensus cracked in the bog of the Iraq war, and argument returned, but the government has had little trouble holding on to its extraordinary counterterrorism tools. What’s changed? The passage of time, for one thing, and the absence of another attack on the scale of 9/11. Americans also have discovered, through Edward Snowden’s leaks, that surveillance doesn’t start at the water’s edge or stop with terrorist plotters in the homeland, but sweeps in the phone records of ordinary people indiscriminately. Even in the frightening aftermath of 9/11, when large majorities told pollsters they were ready to trade in some personal protections for greater security, any effort to monitor phone calls or emails of average people was considered a step too far. In a Pew Research Center survey the week after the terrorist attacks, 70 percent said no to that.

The Twinkie: A metaphor for America’s ills In a classic scene from the 1984 film “Ghostbusters,” Ghostbuster Egon Spengler warns of a worsening situation. He picks up a Twinkie and says if his new information is accurate, the Twinkie would be 35 feet long and weigh 600 pounds. Like that giant Twinkie, it was hard to miss last week’s news about the return of the iconic, yellow, cylindrical snack cake filled with … something. Twinkies are among the most recognizable consumer products in American culture. They’re Americana, going back to at least 1930. From the get-go, we snarfed them by the ton. We joked about their nutritional value and how they could survive a nuclear holocaust. There’s even a legal defense strategy named for them. Let’s not quibble. Each cake is a caloric, sugar- and fat-laden coffin nail. I’m surprised they don’t have nicotine. Despite this history and popularity, by November 2012 the Twinkie was on life support. Snack market competition was robust and consumers had begun paying more attention to nutrition. But the real problem at Hostess, CEO Gregory Rayburn said, was that union workers refused to accept further pay cuts and benefit reductions. “The leadership of that union [the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union] made the decision that they’re willing to sacrifice these jobs because they don’t really want to have these kinds of concessions from other companies,” Rayburn said at the time.

THE FINE LINE Jason Akst In other interviews, Rayburn said other unions had been more flexible and he told CNBC that company management had been “poor.” But make no mistake: Despite November 2012 marking the second time that privately held, Irving, Texas-based Hostess had been in bankruptcy, the reason the picture was bleak was because of workers. And now we’re excited about the comeback. Media interviews gush. As the Washington Post notes, “After emerging from bankruptcy free of pesky unions and crushing debt, parent company Hostess is pushing its standard brands into thousands more locations, accompanied by a high-profile ad campaign that promises the ‘sweetest comeback in the history of ever.’ ” Bigger and better than ever, right? Well, not bigger. The new Twinkie is smaller (each cake is 38.5 grams, compared with 42.5 grams a cake previously). The shelf life – already the subject of lore – has also increased to 45 days from 26 days. Private equity firms Apollo Global Management and Metropoulos & Co. (Hostess’s new owners) said previous owners made those decisions in mid2012. It’s unclear whose decision it was to freeze Twinkies at retailers’ request

or to allow retailers to charge different prices. “This is how makers of consumer prices deal with rising costs,” writes Al Lewis, a columnist for Dow Jones Newswires. “They keep the price the same but shrink the product, hoping customers won’t notice, and it remains as a piece of hidden inflation.” I say the new Twinkie illuminates much of what’s wrong in America. It comes at the expense of thousands of livelihoods, produced with 10 percent of the former workforce. Meanwhile, as the Chicago Tribune reports, the new owners have spent “several million dollars on a marketing blitz using social media, Vine videos, billboards, building walls and a website called Prepare Your CakeFace. Street teams are handing out T-shirts and ‘I Saved the Twinkie’ buttons.” We’re paying more and getting less of a product that’s bad for us. The profits from this ill-advised choice will overwhelmingly benefit already ridiculously rich people, and clever promotion of a product everybody already knows about assures us we can be happy about all this. The best response I can think of to this outrage comes from another classic movie. In this scene, Kevin Bacon, while being paddled, cries out, “Thank you sir! May I have another?”

8 TODAY’S TALKER

Starting high school later may help sleepy teens By BETH J. HARPAZ The Associated Press NEW YORK – Quinn Cooney of Mill Creek, Wash., is excited about starting high school in September, but she’s not looking forward to waking up at 5:30 a.m. to arrive on time. Classes for ninth-graders start at 7:30 a.m., 45 minutes earlier than they did in middle school. “I think it is going to be harder to get up,” said Quinn, 13. “I do think it is better to start early so that we can be finished early and do things after school, but I am worried that if I have a boring class for my first period that it will be hard to stay awake.” Decades of sleep research have confirmed what parents know: It’s hard for teenagers to wake up early. Some high schools have adopted late starts, about 8:30 a.m., to improve attendance and performance. But other districts say it’s too complicated to shift schedules because of logistics involving buses and after-school activities. About 40 percent of U.S. public high schools open before 8 a.m., according to the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics, with just 15 percent starting 8:30 a.m. or later. In districts where early starts are necessary because the same bus does multiple runs for high school, middle school and elementary students, teens often get the early shift. That’s the case in Anne Arundel

Earlier this year, Anne Arundel school officials laid out options for delaying start times to anywhere from 7:32 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. along with potential complications, such as additional costs if buses are added, child care issues where late-day schedules might prevent teens from picking up younger siblings after school, and implications for teams if they end up playing in the dark. Bob Mosier, spokesman for Anne Arundel schools, said no decisions have been made. But the focus on logistics is frustrating for Heather Macintosh, spokeswoman for a national organization called Start School Later that’s headquartered in Annapolis. “What is the priority?” she said. “It should be education, health and safety. All the other stuff may not be perfect – you may have to have your violin lesson AP photo before school or install lights on your Jerry Lloyd, a 10th-grade student, gets field [for sports] – but it will work itself off the bus last year at Severna Park High out.” Megan Kuhfeld, a graduate student at School in Saverna Park, Md. the University of California-Los Angeles County, Md., where public high schools who’s been studying late-start debates start at 7:17 a.m. and buses start running since she was an undergrad at Duke at 5:50 a.m. Lisa Rodvien taught high University in North Carolina, surveyed school there, in Annapolis, and says at- some 35 districts that switched to later tendance at her first-period classes was starts and found most were glad they’d “as low as 50 percent or below.” Among made the switch. Not only did students those who showed up, “I would definitely benefit, for the most part, but “the things see three or four kids with their heads people had feared – how transportation down. You walk over to them to wake would be affected, how sports would be them up and get them to sit up, and you affected – became the new normal and see that they’re exhausted.” people adjusted,” she said.

8BRIEFS Pope urges Catholics to shake up dioceses RIO DE JANEIRO – Pope Francis showed his rebel side Thursday, urging young Catholics to shake up the church and make a “mess” in their dioceses by going out into the streets to spread the faith. It’s a message he put into practice by visiting one of Rio’s most violent slums and opening the church’s World Youth Day on a rain-soaked Copacabana Beach. Francis was elected pope on a mandate to reform the church, and in four short months he has started doing just that: He has

broken long-held Vatican rules on everything from where he lays his head at night to how saints are made. He has cast off his security detail to get close to his flock, and his first international foray as pope has shown the faithful appreciate the gesture. Dubbed the “slum pope” for his work with the poor, Francis received a rapturous welcome in the Varginha shantytown, part of a slum area of northern Rio so violent it’s known as the “Gaza Strip.” The 76-year-old Argentine seemed entirely at home, wading into cheering crowds, kissing people young

and old and telling them the Catholic Church is on their side.

At 112, N.Y. man is world’s oldest; oldest woman 115 GRAND ISLAND, N.Y. – A 112-year-old self-taught musician, coal miner and gin rummy aficionado from western New York is the world’s oldest man, according to Guinness World Records Ltd. Salustiano Sanchez-Blazquez became the world’s oldest man when Jiroemon Kimura died June 12 at age 116. The world’s oldest person is a woman, 115-year-old Misao

Okawa of Japan. Guinness World Records used census reports, immigration papers, marriage records and news reports to confirm the record.

Fire out on Gulf well that ‘snuffed itself out’ NEW ORLEANS – A drilling rig that caught fire after a natural gas blowout in the Gulf of Mexico appears stable now that the fire is out, and there was no sign of any oil sheen on a fly-over Thursday morning, a rig company executive said. “The well essentially snuffed itself out,” said Jim Noe, a vice

president with the rig owner Hercules Offshore Inc., speaking in a telephone interview. The well had blown wild Tuesday, forcing the evacuation of 44 workers. The rig caught fire Tuesday night and part of it collapsed. The federal Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement announced Thursday morning that the well had clogged with sand and sediment, a process called “bridging over” that Noe said can commonly happen with shallow water wells. – Wire reports

cburrows@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Sheryl Nakonechny was troubled by what was happening in her school district. The recent retiree and DeKalb resident who spent the past 30 years teaching at Clinton Rosette Middle School noticed that half the students in DeKalb District 428 belonged to a reduced-price or free lunch program.

Health fair helps seniors find answers By CHRIS BURROWS cburrows@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Sycamore residents Jim and Loretta Hipple have taken time out of their schedule for the Senior Health Fair, but this year it was a little easier. Jim’s to-do list was done, and Loretta had decided that the windows on their house could wait a little longer to be washed. Jim had questions to ask and Loretta had friends to see, so they made the trip. “Our bags are full,” Loretta said Thursday, holding a sack full of pamphlets and freebies. “And we see people that we know either through church or the neighborhood. It’s fun, and it’s a good location.” Sponsored by state Rep. Bob Pritchard, R-Hinckley; state Sen. Dave Syverson, R-Rockford; the Family Service Agency; and the Voluntary Action Center, this year’s Senior Health Fair was the largest yet. In total, 75 vendors were on hand at DeKalb High School to provide information, tips and free eye, ear and health screenings to area seniors. Pritchard first sponsored the fair 10 years ago to promote communication among seniors and health care providers. “I think getting the information right now, with everything changing in the health care field, is important,” Pritchard said. “There are seniors with a lot of questions. ... That’s why we tried to and we got more providers this year than we’ve ever had.” Over the years Pritchard has recruited other local agencies involved with seniors to help grow the event. The Family Service Agency assisted with the registration

“I think getting the information right now, with everything changing in the health care ield, is important. There are seniors with a lot of questions. ... That’s why we tried to and we got more providers this year than we’ve ever had.” State Rep. Bob Pritchard (R-Hinckley) process Thursday and was there to promote its new fitness programs. “We have two new programs, tai chi and enhanced fitness, which we do in partnership with the YMCA,” FSA executive director Dave Miller said. “Enhanced Fitness is a exercise program for all abilities. Seniors can come and participate however they’re able to.” Among the groups providing free screenings was Northern Illinois University’s Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic, which was working in conjunction with the Regional Access and Mobilization Project to supply hearing-disabled seniors with free amplified phones. “We dispense hearing aids over at the university, so it’s kind of a way of just planting a seed for people who know they have an issue and trying to get them into the clinic,” Diane Schecklong, a representative of the clinic, said. Jim Hipple, however, was just happy to do some investigating. “You can usually find an answer to most of your questions here,” he said.

las and Lynn Roberts Family Foundation and DeKalb Township fulfilled grant requests through the food bank to get the Barb Food Mart off the ground. “The plan is that the food bank will raise the funds for approximately a year, and then Barb Food Mart will become independent of the Food Bank,” said Hester Bury, NIFB’s director of corporate and foundation giving. “They’ll be able to get food from us, but they will be independent in terms of their organization and their fundraising.” The group found space for the project in an old classroom that had been used for storage since Huntley Middle School was established in the old DeKalb High School building. “They came to the board about space availability, and we were fortunate enough that

we had this area, and our janitorial staff had to do a lot of work, but it turned out great,” District 428 board President Tom Matya said. “We’re very proud of it.” Nakonechny already is overjoyed at the community’s response. More than 200 families have registered and about 75 walk the aisles each week. In order to register, families must bring some proof of enrollment to any Thursday session. Barb Food Mart offers fresh produce from community gardens, frozen foods, cold foods, and all manner of canned, boxed and jarred foods and ingredients. Unlike other pantries, there are no limits here, and Nakonechny encourages kids to get in on the action. “We make it very kid-friendly,” Nakonechny said. “Our unofficial motto is ‘no lima beans.’ ”

Quinn OKs Chicago-area airport By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press UNIVERSITY PARK – After decades of dispute, the possibility of a third airport in the Chicago area finally materialized Thursday as Gov. Pat Quinn signed a wide-ranging bill that’ll put state transportation officials in charge of the hub and allow them to spend $71 million on land. Hopeful talk of a south suburban airport has dominated this economically struggling area since

the 1970s and spanned the careers of numerous politicians, including former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. But movement was stalled by fights over local control, revenue and environmental impact, as well as whether it was necessary, given the metropolitan area is already served by two major airports. Quinn and other lawmakers touted the project Thursday as an economic starter for the area south of Chicago, estimated to create 14,000 jobs when it’s functional. The bill Quinn signed was also jam-

packed with unrelated projects, including allowing local entities to set up financing for a new 10,000-seat DePaul University sports arena near Lake Michigan and offering tax credits for fertilizer plants. The focus of Thursday’s bravado, though, was the airport. “When we have strong transportation ... that is a key way of growing your economy and helping this particular region,” Quinn said at Governors State University, not far from the proposed site. “This doesn’t come easy.”

The state has already spent about $40 million to acquire land for the project in an unincorporated stretch surrounded by several suburbs, including Peotone. The bill lets the Illinois Department of Transportation run the project, which will eventually be a public-private partnership. The airport that is expected to be a largely cargo hub and offer passenger service. Transportation officials have submitted a master plan to the Federal Aviation Administration, though no construction timeline was discussed Thursday.

ACA may help boomers in the 50 to 64 age group • CARE ACT Continued from page A1 The Illinois Department of Aging said the law may help boomers who are 50 to 64 who need health care, but are either unable to afford it and are too young for Medicare, Kimberly Parker, communications manager for the department, wrote in an email to Shaw Media. And for older boomers, the law improved Medicare by making preventive services – including flu shots, mammograms and health screenings –

free, she wrote. There are concerns about costs. The America’s Health Insurance Plans association notes that 2010 estimates from the Congressional Budget Office show the ACA will reduce funding for the benefits of Medicare Advantage enrollees by more than $200 billion over 10 years. “Given the scope and scale of these funding cuts, we have serious concerns about their likely impact,” AHIP President and CEO Karen Ignagni said in prepared statements posted on the association’s website. “Because the vast majority of the ACA’s

cuts to the Medicare Advantage program have not yet taken effect, beneficiaries have not yet felt their full impact.” Creasey, though, said the law will make the health insurance industry seem more fair and predictable to those older than 50 who have had a tough time finding insurance, have lost their job recently or might want to change jobs. The law allows parents to keep their dependant children on their insurance plans until age 26, eliminates the lifetime cap on what a person can receive in benefits and mandates

insurance companies provide coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. Creasey predicted there would be “hiccups” as the law continues to be rolled out. And there are many unknowns, such as the price of the insurance products that will be offered in the marketplace. The hope is that it creates competition and drives down prices, she said, but stressed it’s too early to know if that’s what will happen. “If everything goes as planned, it should benefit them,” she said.

Professors develop student motivation experiment • BAKER Continued from page A1 Lee Shumow, professor of leadership, educational psychology and foundations, presented her research on improving middle and highschool learning in science education, along with fellow professor Jennifer Schmidt. “It is a very, very big issue on the Hill in Washington, D.C. among policymakers,” she said, “because proficiency in science is very critical for careers.” Shumow said several leg-

islators said constituents had complained they could not find enough engineers to hire for their companies. Through their research, Shumow and Schmidt discovered motivation and engagement in the classroom depended on activities and interaction with the teachers. In response, they developed an experiment to improve motivation among students. They plan to publish their research and help teachers improve learning motivation in science. One of the highlights of the trip was seeing

NIU students and interns in action, Baker said. He said he was excited to see the some of the students tell lawmakers about their research. The internship program at NIU is something he plans to focus on as university president. “It will immerse them in the reality of the world of work and enrich their experience,” Baker said. He said members of Congress understand the value of engaging students in real-world activities. The university had illustrated the importance that engagement

through the student research projects and internships, he said. “The legislators see that every day,” Baker said. “They just see those students blossom in front of them and become staffers or legislators.” While the opportunity to meet with members of Congress was exciting for everyone involved, for Shumow it emphasized the importance of knowing about what policymakers do for the nation. “This renewed my belief that it is an important thing to do,” she said.

The Associated Press CHICAGO – Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka said Thursday that she has no choice but to withhold lawmakers’ paychecks, citing a precedent-setting court case that bars her from paying state employees without a budget appropriation or court order. Gov. Pat Quinn cut $13.8 million for legislators’ paychecks from a budget bill earlier this month, saying it wouldn’t be restored until lawmakers addressed the state’s $97 billion pension shortfall. He also suspended his own pay. “It is my deep hope that this matter is resolved expeditiously,” either by a court or by lawmakers agreeing on a solution to the pension crisis, said Topinka, who undertook a legal review to determine if Quinn’s actions were constitutional. The Riverside Republican said Thursday that Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office advised her of the case that appears to bar her from acting She called Quinn’s actions a “serious precedent that is being created,” and said the stalemate was “no way to run government.” “Threats, blackmail and inertia may be good theater, but it makes us look ridiculous and takes away from our ability to get things done,” she said. “It is time for leaders to lead.” Lawmakers are scheduled to receive their next paychecks Thursday. A provision of the Illinois Constitution says changes in lawmaker salary should not take effect during the term in which they were elected. But Quinn cited the prior court ruling and said he isn’t changing their salary, just withholding the money to pay it. Quinn, a Chicago Democrat who used his line-item veto power in a budget bill to suspend the pay as a way to spur lawmakers to

action, issued a statement saying Topinka came to the right conclusion and reiterating his vow to hold fast on his decision. “Nobody should be paid until the job gets done for taxpayers,” Quinn said. Senate President John Cullerton believes Quinn’s actions raise “serious constitutional issues” and is reviewing his legal options, a spokeswoman said. Lawmakers, who receive an annual salary of more than $67,000 and additional pay for leadership positions, would have to vote to reject Quinn’s changes if they want to get paid. Quinn’s action “sets a very poor constitutional precedent for the executive branch to try to force legislative action through a payroll decision,” said state Rep. Mike Zalewski, a Riverside Democrat who sits on a bipartisan committee looking at possible pension solutions after the House and Senate deadlocked on an approach. But Zalewski acknowledged that the governor’s action is resonating with average residents “who just want to see us get something done.” He said the committee is probably a few weeks away from a resolution. Illinois’ unfunded pension liability is the worst in the nation because lawmakers either skipped or shorted payments to the state’s five retirement systems for decades. Inaction on solving the pension problem has led to repeated credit rating downgrades, while governors from other states have used it as a basis to poach jobs from Illinois. Quinn has made it his top issue for about two years, called special sessions and set deadlines for lawmakers, but with little success. He’s hinted at the possibility of a special session on pensions when lawmakers are in Springfield next month for the Illinois State Fair.

ADA made America more accessible

8LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Opportunities needed beyond enlistment To the Editor: The army recruiting officer quoted in your July 4 story lists education, job training, new skills, life direction, and travel opportunity as reasons local youth join the military. All this is indeed promised by the recruiters allowed in our schools. Particularly susceptible to recruiters’ promises are youth whose families are not able to afford the rising cost of college. Hence recruiters frequent our high school but are never seen in affluent Naperville schools. An informal quiz of local students revealed that: • 25 percent believe they are guaranteed the assignment the

recruiter promised if they get it in writing. • They will be released when their enlistment contract is up. However, the very contract they sign states clearly that the government can change any part of it without notifying the enlistee. Hence, instead of operating some high tech weaponry, for a stated period of time as promised, volunteers find themselves with a rifle on repeated assignments to combat in hellish war zones, subjected to the grisly horrors of war. Half our students were unaware that women were more than twice as likely to be sexually assaulted in the military as in civilian life. This disgrace is documented in a video we have available for loan, entitled “The Invisible

War.” Studies done years after high school graduation found that students going directly into the workforce fared far better in income than those who went into the military first. The travel opportunity listed by the recruiter is ludicrous. As proclaimed in a poster “Join the Navy, travel the world, meet exotic people – and kill them.” With the suicide rate among veterans shockingly high, we need to protect our youth from unknowingly signing up to fight in foreign wars. Let’s work instead to: • Make opportunities for college, job training and employment available to all aspiring youth, regardless of family income.

• Lower the cost of college through federal grants • Ensure availability of medical and other services to returning veterans, many of whom, after repeated combat deployments, wander our streets, unemployed, homeless, and suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Rather than continuing to invest in the world’s largest military budget and highest percentage of our population behind bars, let’s invest in our youth by making education, job training, counselling and health care readily available to all aspiring young people, especially veterans.

Cleveland’s story doesn’t fit the headline In the same week that three women’s bodies were found in East Cleveland, Ohio, my husband and I bought a home in the city of Cleveland, a few miles away. I mention this upfront not to solicit praise or to hold us up as back-to-thecity pioneers. We should have made this move from the suburbs years ago. I just want to make clear my faith in this town that, once again, is being identified around the world as a place where women disappear and die. There is no denying that Cleveland has earned this sad reputation because of horrific high-profile crimes against women that were too often ignored by police. But this is only part of the city’s story. Like every major city in America, Cleveland is a combustible mix of broken promises and second chances. We have yet to see which side wins. A major turning point for Cleveland came in 2009, after the bodies of 11 women were found at the home of registered sex offender Anthony Sowell. All of his victims were black and living in poverty. Most of them were estranged from families worn-out from trying, which made these women easy marks for Sowell, who lured them with promises of drugs, alcohol and shelter. Sowell was convicted for the murders and sentenced to death. Public outrage over his crimes led Mayor Frank Jackson to appoint an independent commission composed of all women. Slowly but steadily, real change has come to Cleveland’s police department. However, there is no quick fix for decades of the economic decay that has chipped away at communities once known for their diversity and civic pride. When neighbors become strangers, shadows grow long.

VIEWS Connie Schultz In May of this year, three young women held captive for years finally escaped the Cleveland home of Ariel Castro. It is impossible to believe you’ve not heard their names -- Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight. It is just as hard to accept that not one neighbor suspected anything, but that appears to be the ugly truth. Castro faces 977 criminal charges, including two counts of aggravated murder – related to accusations that he punched and withheld food from one woman until she miscarried – and hundreds of counts of kidnapping and rape. Two weeks ago, the three women released a video, in which they thanked the public for its support and asked for privacy. For a few days, a lot of us allowed ourselves to feel hopeful because one sad Cleveland story had a happier ending than we had dared to imagine. Then last weekend, another registered sex offender, Michael Madison, was arrested in another inner-city neighborhood. This time, it was in East Cleveland. Three women’s bodies were found in or near a garage he rented. They were wrapped in garbage bags, and all of them were curled in a fetal position. By Wednesday, they were all identified: Angela Deskins, Shirellda Terry and Shetisha Sheeley. Officials warned over the weekend that more bodies may be found, so about 100 volunteers joined the police and FBI in the search. Both Cleveland and East

Cleveland are in Cuyahoga County, which had the highest number of home foreclosures in Ohio last year, a total of 11,427. This gruesome statistic played out in photos of the volunteers – virtually all of them black, many of them women – posted by The Plain Dealer. They weren’t knocking on a lot of doors. Instead, they were chopping through overgrown yards and prying plywood off the windows and doors of abandoned homes. Not the picture of an ideal neighborhood but an irrefutable demonstration of community – and one that has had it with our collective neglect. East Cleveland Mayor Gary Norton told The Plain Dealer that Madison “said some things in questioning that led [authorities] to believe he was influenced by Sowell.” Police Chief Ralph Spotts pushed back on Norton’s account, insisting that Madison never indicated admiration for Sowell. But it’s out there now – this gruesome prospect of a serial killer’s enduring legacy – and there’s no grabbing it back. Once again, Cleveland is swarmed by news organizations from somewhere else. The headlines bray: What’s wrong with Cleveland? It’s not the right question or a fair one, but it’s a convenient one for people who want to pretend it’s none of their concern which side wins.

Twenty-three years ago today, President George H.W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act into law. The law was the culmination of years of effort by disabled people and their family members to break down barriers that had kept them segregated from the rest of American society. It was a movement patterned after the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and ’60s, in which black citizens used civil disobedience to demand equal standing with whites.

Simply making their way down a public street was fraught with barriers, including high street curbs. The mentally handicapped often would be sent to special schools to be taught away from other children, or forced to live in large group homes. The unemployment rate among those with disabilities was far higher than the general population, at roughly 70 percent or more. In its 1970 constitution, Illinois included a provision forbidding discrimination in hiring, or the sale or rental of property to people with physical or mental disabilities. The federal government in 1973 recognized disabled Americans as a special class of citizens entitled to certain protections under the law. In 1990, the government took a more comprehensive step with the ADA, which covers areas including employment, government, schools, transportation, access to goods and services, and telecommunications. In many ways it has improved life, and not just for disabled people. More buildings feature universal access, amenities that no doubt will be appreciated as more Americans become senior citizens. Curb cuts on city streets make things more pleasant not only for those using wheelchairs and walkers, but also for bicyclists, skateboarders and others. Today, local organizations such RAMP, which has an office on First Street in DeKalb, still are working to improve the lives of people with disabilities and help them remain independent. RAMP is a non profit organization what works to remove the barriers faced by the handicapped. To learn more about them and how you can help, call, 815-756-3202, or visit their website at www.rampcil.org. There is work yet to be done, however. Although one key goal of the ADA was to improve access to employment opportunities for people with physical and mental disabilities, some reports say that the employment rate remains fairly constant among those with disabilities, although researchers say there may be many reasons for that. The ADA was an important step in making more Americans full participants in American society. Although there remains room for society to improve, the anniversary of the law is one to be celebrated.

Answers needed on Cuba arms shipment Given Cuba’s long-running economic crisis, you could imagine that some entrepreneurial lieutenant of the revolutionary government got a gold star for inventing a possible new revenue stream. It certainly sounds like a clever move to clean out the Cold War closet and dump some outmoded radar systems, Russian jets and missile parts on a willing taker. After all, Cuba’s Museum of the Revolution can hold only so many military souvenirs. Were the parts going to North Korea for repair, as Cuba has confessed in the days since a North Korean ship was halted at the Panama Canal? Or is Kim Jong Un in the midst of refreshing his toy chest? And burying the cargo under bags of sugar – that’s the kind of low-tech comedy we’ve come to expect from the Cubans. So, was Cuba paying North Korea in advance with sugar for the fix-it work or was it selling a fellow underfed nation one of the only exports of substance it has to offer, along with the military hardware? Weapons analysts have said that even if the restored equipment made its way back to Cuba, it would be ineffective to useless. The Russians made these things a half-century ago. The Cubans can hardly keep Russia’s leftover Lada cars running. Seriously folks, this episode, which reportedly follows a similar Cuba-to-North Korea shipping event in 2012, comes right at a time when the U.S. and Cuba seemed ready for constructive engagement.

Falcons, Ryan agree on 5-year extension FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – Pro Bowl quarterback Matt Ryan (above) and the Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension. Falcons spokesman Reggie Roberts said Thursday that the deal was being finalized as Ryan led the offense through practice Thursday on the first day of training camp. A person familiar with the situation says Ryan’s extension is for $103.75 million deal, with $59 million guaranteed. The person says Ryan will average $20.75 million during the first three years of the extension. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the terms of the deal had not been announced. “I’ve always not worried about the business side of it,” Ryan said at a news conference Thursday evening. “I’ve always thought as a player if you’re worrying about those sorts of things, you’re taking away from what you’re here for.” – Wire report

MAC West will be tough to navigate DETROIT – Northern Illinois was picked to win the Mid-American Conference in the league’s preseason poll, which was announced at Tuesday’s MAC Media Day. Shocking, I know. Even though it seems Toledo gets a ton of preseason love (the Rockets were picked to win the MAC West the past two seasons, despite NIU’s dominance in the division), it was going to be impossible for the league’s media to ignore what the Huskies accomplished last season, and what Rod Carey’s team has coming back. I didn’t really have to think too much when I slotted NIU first in my preseason poll. However, I don’t really feel the Huskies are

VIEWS Steve Nitz going to automatically run away with the division as some seem to think. I really like the squad Ball State has, and the MAC West is a deep division. In November, I may look at this column and just shake my head, but here is my MAC preseason poll with some thoughts. Feel free to disect this all you want.

WEST DIVISION 1. Northern Illinois The Huskies lost their coach, Dave Doeren, after last year’s MAC Cham-

pionship game and some defensive talent, but I don’t see how I couldn’t pick NIU to make its fourth consecutive trip to Detroit with the offense it has coming back. While the defense loses players like corner Rashaan Melvin, defensive ends Alan Baxter and Sean Progar, who are in NFL camps, it’s still a talented group.

2. Ball State Circle Nov. 13 on your calender. When Ball State heads to DeKalb, it may decide the MAC West. This team could have very easily beaten the Huskies the past two seasons, instead blowing fourth-quarter leads in both games. BSU’s QB Keith Wenning is the best quarterback in the MAC not named Jordan

Lynch, and Cardinals coach Pete Lembo could be the next MAC coach to jump to a BCS school.

3. Toledo Another November shootout at the Glass Bowl? Both NIU and Toledo have the offensive talent to make it happen, as the Rockets return QB Terrance Owens, running back David Fluellen and wide receiver Bernard Reedy – three legit playmakers. Rockets defensive coordinator and former Huskies assistant Tom Matukewicz has his work cut out for him with a defense which ranked 12th in the conference in total yards last season – and lost seven starters.

first time in their lives. Aaron played his freshman year of college at Wisconsin-Green Bay and transferred to San Jose City College a year later.

Aaric played out his senior season of high school at Bullard in Fresno and then elected to take one more year at La Jolla Prep School near San Diego. “We played with each other for pretty much our whole lives throughout high school until he went to college and I ended up going to prep school,” Aaric said. “Just having that time away from each other allowed us to develop new skills and the independence of playing by ourselves.”

How do I learn to speak Trestmaneeze? Let’s start with this. It’s early, but I think I really like Marc Trestman. I’m a pretty simple guy and the one issue I had over the years with Lovie Smith is while I think Smith was fairly sharp, I know I’m as smart or smarter than he is. And yet he too often made me feel like he couldn’t understand what the purpose of my existence was and why I was wasting good oxygen at all. Smith never seemed to feel I or any of my brethren in the media were worthy of his wisdom. On the other hand, yes-

terday the Bears’ new coach shook my hand, smiled, looked me in the eye and said ‘We know each other, don’t we [it was our first relatively private face-to- face since he took the Bears job]?’ I said Pro Football Weekly and he smiled a little wider and said “Of course, Hub,” and we actually talked a little football for 60 seconds. Forget a breath of fresh air, this guy Trestman was a windstorm. I also really like how comfortable he seems to be in his skin right now, because it’s that skin that raises the biggest questions about Marc

VIEWS Hub Arkush Trestman, head football coach. Is he a football coach or a doctoral candidate for a degree in how to turn heathens into pigskin practitioners? For example, consider his response when asked how he feels about his offense right now. “We’ve got an offensive group that has really assimilated this football and this

verbiage very, very quickly,” he said. “We threw a lot of volume at them. We talked about it over the OTAs, a lot of volume at them each and every day. “We’re excited as a staff because our players appear to get stimulated by the volume of plays that we have given them. They like the football, they like the formations, they’re enjoying the process.” I wonder if all of the Bears players can spell all those words, let alone know what they mean. I’m not trying to make fun of anybody, I’m trying to ask

an important question. Will this coach and his players be able to speak the same language? Personally, I’m really enjoying Trestman because I know he is smarter than me. I asked him what I thought was a very straight forward question in the news conference. Other than the won-loss record, how would he like to be evaluated by Bears fans? He started his answer with “I’m going to let that hypothetical take on its own tone.”

Iowa hires Northern Illinois official for athletic post IOWA CITY, Iowa – The University of Iowa has hired an Northern Illinois administrator to oversee academic services for athletes. Athletic director Gary Barta named Lisa Tovar an associate athletics director Wednesday. Tovar worked in a similar job at Northern Illinois for two years after previously working as an athletic academic counselor at Ohio State. Her hiring comes under a reorganization in which the athletics department has created separate units to oversee compliance and academic services. Previously, department official Fred Mims oversaw both functions but Mims was reassigned last year amid questions about the school’s handling of sexual harassment allegations against a counselor. Barta says he’s impressed by Tovar’s passion for helping student-athletes and working with coaches. Last week, Barta named Arizona State administrator Lyla Clerry to oversee compliance with NCAA regulations.

White Sox starting pitcher Jake Peavy delivers during the first inning Thursday against the Detroit Tigers at U.S. Cellular Field.

WHITE SOX 7, TIGERS 4

Peavy shines in likely last start CHICAGO – As much as Jake Peavy has tried to keep on the blinders amid trade speculation, even he is beginning to embrace what could be his final days in a White Sox uniform. He had that in mind when Sox clubhouse manager Vince Fresso asked Peavy which jersey he wanted to wear for his start Thursday against the Tigers with the expectation he’d choose their classic white or black jersey. Peavy, realizing it could be his last start on the South Side with the July 31 trade deadline less than a week away, took advantage of the opportunity. Peavy requested the Sox wear their 1983 throwback uniforms, which are reserved for Sunday home games this season. Understanding the circumstances, manager Robin Ventura whole-heartedly gave the OK. Wearing the throwback might become a day game tradition after the Sox snapped a three-game losing streak with a 7-4 win against Detroit. “Last year, I never made a start on Sunday and didn’t get to pitch in those [1972 throwbacks], and we all know the

VIEWS Meghan Montemurro situation and I hadn’t pitched in these, and these are so cool,” Peavy explained. Standing in front of his locker after the win, Peavy (8-4) certainly sounded like a player prepping to be traded. Peavy said he doesn’t have a gut feeling as to what will transpire, though he has talked with general manager Rick Hahn and now must sit and wait. Peavy does have some of his belongings packed in case a deal happens. “He’s a big part of this team and he’s a veteran leader and sets examples for a lot of guys,” catcher Tyler Flowers said. “He’s a guy that’s helped me since he came over. We’ve worked together a fair bit and I love catching him.” If Thursday was his last start with the Sox, Peavy finished his career with a strong performance. Although the Tigers scored four runs off Peavy in seven-plus innings, the 32-year-old right

hander held them to four hits and struck out seven. Sox fans gave Peavy a standing ovation when he struck out Don Kelly to end the seventh inning and again when Ventura pulled him from the game after he gave up a homer to Brayan Pena to start the eighth. Peavy tipped his cap to the fans as he walked off the field both times. “It was very humbling. It was emotional for me,” Peavy said. “If it was the last time I pitch here at U.S. Cellular, with this uniform on, it was a nice way to go out. It meant the absolute world to me. I hope everyone knows that.” Any team scouting Peavy, who has one year left on his contract, had to be pleased Thursday with his improved command from his first start off the disabled list Saturday against the Braves. Despite giving up three home runs, Peavy allowed fewer hits and controlled Detroit hitters with a sharp fastball that sat at 92 mph. Peavy said he felt fine and wasn’t experiencing any rib soreness, which aids the onfield results that he’s healthy. His impact on the Sox extends

Kansas City at White Sox, 7:10 p.m. today, CSN, AM-670 beyond his 36-29 record in parts of five seasons on the South Side. The guidance he provides to younger pitchers is invaluable, and Peavy will be tough to replace inside the clubhouse should the Sox trade him. “I don’t want him to go,” Ventura said. “I enjoy him being on our team; I know what he means. I don’t make that decision so again, I’m kind of the guy that appreciates him being on our team right now and I hope he’s here through next year, too.”

DEKALB/SYCAMORE CHURCH SOFTBALL LEAGUE

Playoffs get underway DAILY CHRONICLE Tuesday’s playoff games in the DeKalb/Sycamore Church League saw no major upsets, but featured a number of interesting games. Bethel Assembly defeated Westminster Presbyterian, 18-8, as Westminster couldn’t overcome the loss of ace Katie Thurlby. David Harbecke got the win for Bethel. Hope Community blasted Sycamore 1st Baptist, 17-4, with Dale McMillan picking up the win by pitching four

innings. Jake Gordon and Nate Walters did much of the work offensively for Hope. Sycamore St. Mary edged Sycamore Methodist, 8-5, as Justin Oprins and Trent Owens were the hitting stars for St. Mary. Ted Strack got the win. Christ Community I defeated Immanuel Lutheran, 7-4, putting up three runs in the sixth inning to pull ahead. Immanuel loaded the bases late but failed to score. The semifinals will be played today.

Cubs outfielder Alfonso Soriano is on the verge of rejoining the New York Yankees where his big league career started. Although Soriano was initially in the lineup for Thursday’s game at Arizona, he was scratched after a deal to trade Alfonso him to the Yan- Soriano kees was reportedly 99 percent finished. The apparent move – although not yet official – required Soriano, who spent five seasons with the Yankees, to approve going to New York since he holds 10-5 rights as well as a no-trade clause. While Soriano’s eightyear, $136 million contract he signed in 2006 became a dark cloud hovering over the organization the past few years,

the 37 year old has been an important presence in a young Cubs clubhouse especially during this rebuilding phase. Over the past two seasons, Soriano won over his new bosses, manager Dale Sveum and president of baseball operations Theo Epstein in particular. “Coming in here I actually had a little trepidation of how we would handle [Soriano] and the contract and if his skills declined how we would handle playing time,” Epstein said last year. “I’ll be honest it wasn’t something that I was really looking forward to. Those concerns proved to be completely baseless. What a pleasant surprise he turned out to be.” The Cubs are expected to take on a good portion of the approximately $25 million Soriano is still owed through next season. By doing so, the Cubs should receive a lower-level prospect from the Yankees. But perhaps most importantly, Soriano’s departure creates an opening in the outfield and at-bats for younger players like Junior Lake. In seven seasons with the Cubs, Soriano hit .264 with 181 home runs and 526 RBIs in 889 games.

Yankees refuse to activate A-Rod NEW YORK – Alex Rodriguez’s already strained relationship with the New York Yankees hit another low when he pushed to be activated from the disabled list Friday, the team refused and he had a lawyer join the discussion of his injury rehabilitation. Already a target of Major League Baseball’s drug investigation, the third baseman angered the Yankees when he obtained a second medical opinion on his strained left quadriceps this week without informing the team in writing, a step required by the sport’s collective bargaining agreement. The Yankees intend to discipline him, most likely with a fine. “Do you trust the Yankees?” Rodriguez was asked during an interview on WFAN radio. A-Rod’s answer was telling. “Um. You know, I’d rather not get into that,” he responded. “’I’m just frustrated that I’m not on the field tomorrow.” Sidelined since hip surgery in January, Rodriguez issued a statement early Thursday saying he wanted to be activated for today’s homestand opener against Tampa Bay. But that wasn’t in the Yankees plans. – Wire report

Training camp trek could be worth it for some It’s time for some football. The Bears will take the field Friday for the first practice of training camp. Hub Arkush and Tom Musick discuss:

Musick: The grass has been mowed. The bleachers have been built. The gift shop has been stocked. Bourbonnais is on the big stage yet again. But for Bears fans who don’t live particularly close to Olivet Nazarene University, is training camp worth the trek? Arkush: If you’re one of those folks who just loves ya some Bears football, the answer is absolutely yes. But you have to come with some realistic expectations of just how close you’re going to get to your navy and orange heroes and how happy they’re going to be to see you. Remember, you’re playing

hookey for a day or two to have some fun but while they’re playing a game, they’re also hard at work. Musick: That’s a good place to start. If your mission is to collect autographs from Bears players, understand that a couple of thousand people alongside you at training camp have the same mission. So let the kids go first – they get to stand in a roped-off area where players enter and leave the field, which is really smart by the Bears – and be aware that you probably won’t get a star player to sign your stuff. Arkush: Another thing fans need to realize is this isn’t an NFL game they’re coming to watch. There will be no tackling during practice and

no contact anywhere but on the line of scrimmage. But if you want to see wide receivers and defensive backs making acrobatic plays at full speed or Jay Cutler throwing darts all over the field and heaving the ball 60 yards in the air to a streaking Brandon Marshall, from reasonably up close and personal, Bourbonnais’ the place to be. Musick: Exactly, and you can’t beat the free admission. So for those who make the trip to training camp and want to learn more about the

Bears this season, what drills would you recommend that they focus on? Arkush: In the old days we yearned for the Nutcracker, two guys straddling a two-by-four, each trying to knock the other off, but that’s gone the way of Ditka and Wanny. Nobody hits anybody anymore. Look for 7-on-7’s and “All 11” passing drills. See how many guys Cutler can hit in stride at full speed and watch how routes are strung together to begin to understand the Trestman West Coast offense. Musick: Definitely, anybody who likes precision passing will get a kick out of the 7-on-7s. I’m also a big fan of the 1-on-1 pass rush drills. Those should tell us a lot about big rookie Kyle Long. As we wrap

up, how about giving a couple of non-household names to keep an eye on during camp? Arkush: Unlike last year, when undrafted rookie free agent offensive tackle James Brown was in the bull’s eye on everyone’s radar, there are no easy calls this year. Another offensive tackle I know the Bears are very hopeful about is fifth round pick, Jordan Mills. I expect the seventh-rounder, Marquess Wilson, to be this year’s Evan Rodriguez – as in never should have touched him – but smarter people than me think he’ll grow up and be a steal. And watch Brandon Hardin very closely. Unfortunately, Hardin’s another player I’m not optimistic about but he has to earn playing time if Phil Emery’s first draft is going to get a decent grade.

By DAVE CAMPBELL The Associated Press MANKATO, Minn. – For the Minnesota Vikings, bettering last season will be a challenge. Another seven-win improvement? That’s mathematically impossible, since they went 10-6 last year. Yes, unpredictability abounds in the NFL, but on the surface their schedule also has the potential to be more difficult with a home game moved to London. The eight opponents they face on the road finished a combined 73-55 in 2012, and four of them made the playoffs. Oh, and as good as the MVP award winner Adrian Peterson is at running the ball, well, there’s no precedent in league history for consecutive 2,000-yard seasons. Plus, after sneaking up on some teams last year, the Vikings will surely be taken more seriously by their foes this fall. “You’re not just anointed because you had a good year last year,” linebacker Chad Greenway said. But so far, at least before any of the games are played to judge their progress, they’re very much on track. There were no offseason arrests or other off-the-field problems. No injuries to key players have lingered into July or popped up right before training camp. Everyone signed their contracts on time, including first-round draft picks Sharrif Floyd, Xavier Rhodes and Cordarelle Patterson Thursday morning in the hours before players headed to Minnesota State University to report for duty. Championships aren’t won in the summer, but they can be lost. New England, for one, had a sobering major setback, with the murder charge against now-former tight end Aaron Hernandez. Vikings coach Leslie Frazier, speaking to reporters upon his arrival at MSU, the team’s training camp home for 48 years, promised to praise his players at the introductory meeting on Thursday evening for staying out of offseason trouble. “I don’t think you take that for granted. I don’t. I’m going to talk with them about that and what we have to get done going forward, but I think it’s important,” Frazier said. “I think that’s a major part of having a chance to be successful in this league as you are changing the culture of a football team.” Frazier smiled as he mentioned not receiving any recent calls from executive director of player development Les Pico, who oversees legal affairs. “When I saw him yesterday, I said, ‘Not one time did I see your name flash up on my phone when I picked up this summer,’ and I said, ‘That’s a good thing,’ ” Frazier said. “It hasn’t always been the case, so I’m encouraged by that.”

BEARS NOTES

Bostic relates training camp to Florida By KEVIN FISHBAIN kfishbain@shawmedia.com BOURBONNAIS – The hazing and challenges will certainly come, but for one day at least, Bears second-round pick Jon Bostic didn’t necessarily experience any rookie pains. Bourbonnais felt like Gainesville for the former Florida Gator in his first full day at camp. “The whole coaching staff and the players kind of make it feel like home. Since I’ve been up here, it’s been like a home away from home,” Bostic said. A few players mentioned a college feel to Marc Trestman’s staff and how things are run, especially opening camp with a much-discussed conditioning test. Bostic said his Florida roots helped him get through it. “Coming from Florida, that humidity out there helped out a lot during the conditioning test,” Bostic said. When practice opens today, Bostic will be working as a middle linebacker, along with veteran D.J. Williams, who signed a oneyear deal this past offseason.

Roster move: The Bears moved swiftly on Thursday after learning of Sedrick Ellis’ sudden retirement by signing veteran defensive end Jamaal Anderson to a one-year deal. Like Ellis, Anderson is a former top-10 pick, going eighth overall to the Falcons in the 2007 draft. As a rookie in ’07, Anderson started all 16 games and made 30 tackles, but both of those numbers are career-highs. Anderson played in only two games for the Bengals last season before having surgery on his quadriceps. The Bengals released Anderson on July 10. Eyes on the kicker: Robbie Gould was a popular player after comments he made Wednesday night on ESPN

1000 regarding his contract, saying he tried to renegotiate two weeks ago and the Bears “said there was no money. Let me put it to you this way: if they wanted a guy, they’re going to find a way to sign him if it meant that much to him.” On Thursday, Gould clarified his stance. “I didn’t disagree with anything that Phil Emery said. He’s not going to give anyone a deal,” Gould told reporters. “There is no money. Until they can get the number where they can find a way in 2014 to keep a lot of guys, that is what they’re going to do. It’s not rocket science.” Gould later took to Twitter, adding, “I apologize to any fan who feels ill will

towards those comments. Lets go win a championship.” No new deals: Players entering the last years of their respective contracts, like Gould, had to answer questions about knowing that no extension will come during the season. Cornerback Tim Jennings: “It’s not disappointing. I guess it’s just writing on the wall for a lot of guys.” Safety Major Wright: “I’m not worrying about my contract. It’s just another year where I have to prove that I can play this safety position.” Returner Devin Hester: “I’m more excited that this is my contract year. I’d rather do my contract after the season is over, because the way I’m feeling now, I could boost my stock a whole lot from where it’s at now.” Marshall in shape: On Thursday morning, wide receiver Brandon Marshall posted an impressive photo on Instagram, showing his body composition checkpoints. He came in at 6.2 percent body fat and 235 pounds.

Bears coach Marc Trestman (right) talks to his team June 13 during minicamp in Lake Forest.

And again I thought, “What?” I asked the question and I know there was nothing hypothetical about it but with his answer all I could think was he must know something I don’t. But how does that make me a better reporter?

Now I’m going to say this one more time in the hopes the whole class is listening, I really like Trestman so far and I’m fascinated to see what he does next. I don’t know if we’re watching the next Bill Walsh or the next Les Steckel. I know this guy knows the game and he wants to teach us all. What I have no idea about is how he’s going to share his gift with his

players, you and me. One more question before we go. A phrase I’ve heard Trestman use several times already is he wants his players to “self-actualize.” Can anybody tell me what that means?

1. I could not have been more disappointed by the decision by Sedrick Ellis to retire rather than report to the Bears. You can argue it’s Sedrick Ellis just as well because the young man doesn’t want to play in the NFL anymore. But they were already thin on the defensive line. 2. I liked Jay Cutler’s arrival. It’s one thing to say “I’m not going to talk about my contract” and a whole other thing to convince folks it’s not going to be a distraction. Jay Cutler I bought what the quarterback was selling. He seemed mature about it and confident that he will perform well enough to earn a top-dollar deal. 3. I thought Devin Hester’s chances of making the Bears’ 53-man opening day roster took a hit when Phil Emery pointed Devin Hester out that the team isn’t in the greatest cap situation. While the club also isn’t desperate, there are few if any other veteran players on the bubble who could provide the cap relief cutting Hester would.

4. Western Michigan How far will the Broncos row their boat this season? Sorry, I had to to mention it. P.J. Fleck has arrived, and he was the star of MAC Media Day. The Broncos return just one starter each on the offensive and defensive lines and have to fight through a grueling nonconference schedule (at Michigan State, at Northwestern, at Iowa) before league play even begins.

5. Central Michigan I could have easily slotted the Chippewas higher. Maybe I should have, after they won four in a row to end the 2012 season, including a victory over Western Kentucky in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl.

to believe the Bulls will be relevant.

6. Eastern Michigan

3. Miami (Ohio)

6. Akron

There was some optimism in Ypsilanti before last season, when the Eagles were coming off a 6-6 campaign. After last season’s 2-10 mark, coach Ron English may start feeling some heat.

Third-team All-MAC quarterback Zac Dysert is gone, but NIU fans remember senior Austin Boucher, who filled in for an injured Dysert at the 2010 MAC Championship and led the RedHawks to that huge upset.

The past three seasons have been a disaster for Akron, with a combined three wins. Yes, the Zips have won just three contests since 2010. I did like the Terry Bowden hire and Akron does have 14 starters coming back, so I think that at least keeps the Zips out of the cellar.

EAST DIVISION 1. Ohio The Bobcats have a rare breed in coach Frank Solich – a very good coach (117-63 career record), who is beginning his ninth year in Athens and seems content there. I think the MAC East is wide open, but I felt the Bobcats with Solich and the offensive talent they have coming back (QB Tyler Tettleton, RB Beau Blankenship for starters) gives them the lead here.

4. Kent State Why would I pick a team that was on the cusp of a BCS appearance last year fourth in its own division? The Golden Flashes lost a lot of talent on defense, as well as 2012 MAC Coach of the Year Darrell Hazell, who’s now at Purdue. In reality, it wouldn’t surprise me if any of the first four teams in my poll were in Detroit on Dec. 6.

5. Buffalo 2. Bowling Green I could have easily picked the Falcons first and not second-guessed myself. There’s talent everywhere with 18 starters back, although 2012 MAC Defensive Player of the

The Bulls do return 19 starters, including stud tailback Branden Oliver. However, there’s nothing this program has done in recent memory (save for the fluke 2008 MAC title) that leads me

7. UMass The Minutemen won a game in 2012, the program’s first in FBS, and the season really should be considered a success considering they didn’t play an FCS school. The good news for UMass fans is the fact they’ll be playing some games on campus starting next year, instead of in front of a bunch of empty blue seats at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.

Now the two are reunited back near their hometown, each signing with Northern Illinois this summer. Aaron enters as a junior with two years of eligibility remaining while Aaric is a freshman. While the brothers come to NIU at the same time, they admit their decisions were made independently. NIU coach Mark Montgomery said his staff started recruiting Aaric during his senior year of high school and into his prep season. When a late scholarship opened up, Montgomery said the Huskies pursued Aaron as well. “What we liked about both guys was their athleticism,

“It’s just like being in your home environment … and being able to play in front of the people that I love the most.” Aaron Armstead NIU junior guard

basketball IQs, come from an unbelievable family, have Chicago ties,” Montgomery said. “When you’re at Hales Franciscan for three or four years of high school ... we want to tap into that area. They played AAU with Chicago-area teams, I think it’s good, some name recognition on top of two guys that are hard workers, very skilled.”

NIU lost a few perimeter players off the 2012-13 team, including leading scorer Abdel Nader, who transferred to Iowa State and was the only Huskie to average in double figures. While Aaron comes in with Division-1 basketball experience, Montgomery said both brothers should see “extended minutes” in their first season. After two years away, both Armsteads are glad to be back in Illinois. “It’s great. I have a lot of friends and family out here versus California, I don’t really know too many people out there, just a few relatives,” Aaron said. “It’s just like being in your home environment…and being able to play in front of the people that I love the most.”

Young people get the dirt on clean water

What: Mud Fest 2013 Who: All middle and high school students invited, they should bring signed permission form and extra clothes When: 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday Where: Sanderson Farm, North Malta Road, 1/2 mile north of Route 64, Mayfield Township Cost: $10, includes hot dog meal Information: 815-758-0643 or www.firstdekalb.org

mud and slime.

The Christian education coordina-

tor from the First Lutheran Church of DeKalb collaborated with several other local churches on an event that promises to get children wet and mucky. But the event also will educate them on the importance of clean water and how people in Tanzania, Africa, have to survive many times without it.

If you go

“The best way to teach youth about clean water is to get them really dirty with mud, green slime and say ‘Oh by the way, there’s no running water out here,’” Oduber said. The event is called Mud Fest 2013 and it will be held this Saturday at the Sanderson Farm in the Mayfield Township area. Children and teenagers are encouraged to come and donate $10 that will support clean water filtration systems in Tanzania, Africa. During the event, youths will participate in games such as shaving cream wars and tractor rides. “It will be good old-fashioned messy fun,” Oduber said. This is the first event of its kind that the First United Methodist church, First Lutheran Church and Bethlehem Lutheran Church have collaborated on. Oduber said she reached out to meet with coordinators at other churches because she wanted

to think of more events they could put together after she helped with a successful glow-in-the-dark event in March. “When you come together under the same goal of supporting youth in the community, you can accomplish much more ... you can cross the denominational line,” Oduber said. Nancy Melms, Christian education director for First United Methodist Church, said the area churches are always looking to put together an event that can help other people. Mud Fest will be helpful for children to see how beneficial clean water can be for African communities, she said. “We thought people using the clean water filtration systems would be something new and something they haven’t experienced before,” Melms said. “... we take the clean water for granted here.” Jack Cress, CEO of Cresswood Shredding Machinery, will be at the event to educate the youths about the need for clean water in Tanzania. Next summer he will travel to Africa to deliver several clean water filtration systems. The proceeds from Mud Fest will go toward purchasing ceramic water filters, Cress said in an email. One of the filter systems was designed by Manny Hernandez, a Northern Illinois University art professor. Silver is embedded inside the ceramic material of the filter system and it doesn’t involve any chemicals for filtering, Oduber said.

8RELIGION BRIEFS Most loving intimacy linked to marriage and worship

the church’s project, “thinking it more to be freedom of expression than a religious statement.”

WASHINGTON (AP) – An advocate for traditional marriage says young people need to know that real happiness won’t be found in the hook-up culture. Patrick Fagan, director of the Marriage and Religion Research Institute, says surveys have found that married couples who attend church every week have the most fulfilling sex lives. In a lecture on “Porn in the Dorm” at the Family Research Council, Fagan said that’s information that college students probably weren’t taught in sex education classes. He said it also suggests that a student’s married parents may be the go-to experts on how to have fulfilling and enjoyable sex lives. But Fagan warned that pornography pollutes the mind and heart, making real intimacy difficult if not impossible. Online: http://marri.us/get.cfm?i=MA13E05 Provided photo

Pastor Janet Hunt of First Lutheran Church of DeKalb recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of her ordination. She is pictured with Pastor Dennis Heaney (left), who participated in the church’s celebration held on July 14, and Trent Lange, church council president.

First Lutheran pastor celebrates anniversary The congregation of First Lutheran Church of DeKalb, along with family and friends, celebrated with Pastor Janet Hunt the 25th anniversary of her ordination. The celebration was held July 14 at the church. Pastor Dennis Heaney, retired pastor from Somonauk and longtime friend of Pastor Hunt’s, gave the children’s lesson and the sermon. He also led the congregation in a special blessing for Pastor Hunt. A reception followed the service with many friends and family from some of her previous congregations in attendance. Hunt has served Lutheran churches of the ELCA in Dixon, Nachusa, Wilmington and Sycamore. She also served on the bishop’s staff of the Northern

Illinois Synod in Rockford. A Rochelle native, Hunt was ordained on July 17, 1988, at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in DeKalb. She currently serves First Lutheran Church of DeKalb. To honor Pastor Hunt, a special donation is being made to the ELCA’s Global Barnyard. Donations are being accepted through Aug. 18. The Global Barnyard helps people all over the world fight hunger and transform lives by providing animals to be raised as not only a food source, but also a sustainable solution to ensure that these gifts keep on giving for years to come. First Lutheran Church is located at 324 N. Third St. For more information, visit www. firstdekalb.org or call 815-758-0643.

4,500 crosses go missing from Durango ski hill DURANGO, Colo. (AP) – Thousands of small crosses that were planted on a Colorado ski slope to bring attention to childhood poverty have gone missing. The Durango Herald reports volunteers with the First Baptist Church of Bayfield planted 4,500 crosses in a cross pattern on the city’s ski slope and had a permit from the city to keep them there for a month. Police say the crosses were removed sometime between the night of July 9 and the morning of July 10. Sgt. Rita Warfield says the crosses might have been stolen to protest religious symbols in a public park. City Manager Ron LeBlanc says he approved

South Dakota Lutheran church celebrating 150th anniversary ELK POINT, S.D. (AP) – A South Dakota church that bills itself as the first Norwegian Lutheran Church in the Dakota Territory is celebrating its 150th anniversary. The St. Paul Lutheran Church in Elk Point was founded in 1863. The parish was originally known as the Norwegian Evangelical Lutheran Congregation. The church in southeastern South Dakota church has been served by 20 pastors. Church spokesman Glenn Olson told KCAU-TV that the celebration is exciting at a time when the changing face of agriculture and population shifts make it difficult for rural churches to survive.

Ex-priest seeks $450,000 from Wis. archdiocese MILWAUKEE (AP) – The list of creditors for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee includes those you might expect to find in a bankruptcy case – a bank, pension funds and a retirees’ health care plan. It also includes a priest removed from the priesthood amid allegations of child sexual abuse. The archdiocese filed for bankruptcy in 2011, saying it wouldn’t have enough money if lawsuits filed by sexual abuse victims went against it. Hundreds of victims also filed claims. The claim filed by Marvin Knighton stands out because he was acquitted by a jury. But the church still removed him from the priesthood, saying two of three allegations against him had merit. Knighton is seeking back pay of $450,000.

Saving her sanity is right step for mother Dear Abby: I was a single mom for most of my teenagers’ lives. We have never been financially stable, and lately things have hit an all-time low. I am prone to bouts of depression. I remarried last year, and my husband unfortunately does not understand or tolerate the depressions. He feels I should just “get over” things. He also doesn’t believe in anti-depressants. It got so bad I attempted suicide last weekend. My husband said my doing that was abusive to HIM. Had the pills I took not made me throw up, I would have happily waited to die. There are six people on my medical aid, and the available

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips funds are more than half used up. For me to see a psychiatrist will take a huge chunk out of it. I am caught between a rock and a hard place. If I do it, my family will miss out on medical care should the need arise later in the year. Is it selfish to try to hang onto what is left of my sanity? – On The Edge in Johannesburg, South Africa Dear On The Edge: That your husband chooses not to recognize that depression is an illness – one that’s treatable – is a reflection of his igno-

rance. That he would tell you your attempted suicide was abusive to HIM suggests that he is more concerned with himself than he is with you. You have teenage children who need their mother. Trying to hang onto what’s left of your sanity and get the medications you need isn’t selfish – it’s SOUND THINKING. If not for your sake, please seek help now for theirs. Dear Abby: I’m pregnant with my first child and live 800 miles from my parents, who are retired. We have a good relationship now, but growing up I had major emotional issues my parents didn’t handle well. Years of therapy in my early adulthood helped to fix them.

My parents have just told me they have been approved to be foster parents and will be caring for an emotionally disturbed teenager soon. While I know I should be happy for them, I’m extremely upset. I feel they were ill-equipped to handle my emotional issues growing up, and they should be more concerned with their grandchildren in retirement than taking in strangers. When I heard the news, I tried my best to sound supportive, but they could tell I was upset. How can I handle these feelings? Would it be beneficial to tell them how I feel? – Mommy-To-Be in North Carolina Dear Mommy-To-Be: A way

to handle your feelings would be to view the situation from the perspective of an adult, not a jealous child. That your parents will foster this teenager doesn’t mean they will love their grandchildren any less. On some level they may be trying to make up for the mistakes they made in your upbringing. Because they were ill-equipped to recognize your emotional problems does not mean they won’t be wiser now. I suggest you wait to discuss this with them until you’re feeling less resentful.

Tai chi can improve balance for Parkinson’s Dear Dr. K: I’ve heard that tai chi may help people with Parkinson’s disease. Could you please elaborate? Dear Reader: Parkinson’s disease (PD) affects the brain. The earliest brain changes probably begin when someone is a young adult, but the symptoms of the disease usually don’t begin until much later in life. Parkinson’s disease interferes with muscle control, leading to trembling; stiffness and inflexibility of the arms, legs, neck and trunk; loss of facial expression; trouble speaking clearly; trouble swallowing; and a variety of other symptoms. These changes interfere with the ability to carry out everyday activities.

than patients in the other two groups. The tai chi group also had significantly fewer falls and slower rates of decline in overall motor control. Tai chi is a safe exercise. I have a dear friend who has suffered from Parkinson’s disease for more than 20 years. Sometimes, he just “froze”: He just couldn’t will himself to speak or move. His doctor suggested that when that happened he should try to break the freeze by shouting. It was easier to shout a word or two than to speak them, and it worked – but it startled folks around him. So he had an inspired idea. He asked another mutual friend, a professional singer, to teach him to sing. Particularly he wanted to sing songs

that required a lot of smooth modulations – some phrases sung softly, and others sung loudly and with passion. It seemed to reduce the number of times that he “froze.” It was a kind of vocal tai chi. In his informative new book, “The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi,” my colleague Dr. Peter Wayne, with Mark Fuerst, explains the principles and benefits of tai chi. He also provides a detailed description of a tai chi program you can perform at home. Tai chi has plenty of health benefits, even for healthy people. You can learn more about this book on my website.

71 percent of teens believe in American dream Teens: What is your definition of the American Dream? According to a poll by the Job Shadow Coalition, which provides students with on-the-job experience, most teens would describe it simply as, “being happy, no matter what you do.” That answer was the top choice among the 644 teens polled in the survey. In second place was, “having a house, cars and a good job,” followed by “being able to provide for my family, “having a career of my dreams,” “being rich and/or famous” and “owning my own business and being the boss.” Overall, 71 percent of the teens believe the American Dream is achievable today,

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace 10 percent aren’t sure, and 10 percent feel the American Dream is now out of reach. How will the American Dream be achieved? Seventy percent believe higher education is the key to attaining this goal. The remaining 30 percent believe education “doesn’t matter.” Seventy-five percent of the boys believe the American Dream is obtainable and 68 percent of the girls feel that way. Dr. Wallace: I have tasted whiskey and beer one time

8ASTROGRAPH By BERNICE BEDE OSOL Newspaper Enterprise Association

TODAY – Although you might become involved in several enterprises in the year ahead, try to single out the ones that have legitimate promise. Otherwise, you might be kept busy, but constantly be anxious. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Usually, you are single-minded in your plans. Today, however, you could muddle your affairs by involving yourself in several projects, not properly following through on any of them. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Favors that you request today could either be ignored or carried out poorly by associates. To be on the safe side, it’s best you rely solely upon yourself and not on others. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – By including too many people in your plans today, your endeavors could be overshadowed by everyone else wanting to follow their own ideas. You could be left on the outside looking in. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Unfortunately, if you’re not careful, you could get caught smack in the middle of a situation where you have to please everybody. Don’t get snookered into it – it’s an impossible situation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Even if your strong views are diametrically opposed to those of your colleagues, allow your intellectual adversaries a chance to express their thoughts. The helpful things you learn might surprise you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – You’re right to be wary of a promotional scheme presented to you by an entrepreneur with a poor track record. She or he could be promoting another pig in a poke. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – There will be an eventual day of reckoning if you don’t guard against impulses to make commitments that you never intend to follow through on, just to appease others. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – To use your time productively, you must first have a feasible, effective game plan and then stick to it. You may be tempted to start more than you’ll be able to finish – don’t give in. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Without thinking, you could allow an associate to lay claim to some of your resources. What’s yours does not belong to anyone else unless you choose to give it. Use your discretion. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Although you might get off to a good start by knuckling down to business, favorable results are questionable because you could let up just when the finish line is in sight. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Just because a friend has an idea, don’t automatically give it credence. Check things out thoroughly – this glib pal might have a rather unsound plan. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Being willing to work hard is not the total answer for achieving success today. Unless you take off your blinders and evaluate things for what they are, you risk wasting your time and effort.

each just to find out how they taste, and they both taste terrible. I’m shocked that teenagers would drink that stuff. It can’t be because of how they taste. Why, then, do teens drink? I’m sure it takes a long time to acquire a taste for alcohol. – Bruce, St. Louis, Mo. Bruce: You’re right – it’s not the taste. Teens, (and just about everyone else) drink because of the intoxicating, inhibition-lowering effect of alcohol, and also because others are doing it. It helps them socialize. Many young drinkers use alcohol especially when they want to impress a member of the opposite sex; this is sometimes known as “finding

8SUDOKU

courage in a bottle.” They tell themselves they can’t overcome their shyness without a couple of drinks. Also, some males think drinking will show off their masculinity. For some teens, the motive is almost entirely to be accepted by the group. Hardcore teen drinkers sometimes drink just because they’re bored and feel there is nothing better to do. They get their alcohol from their parents’ liquor cabinet. Dr. Wallace: I’m 15 and have just started dating. My parents have set an 11:15 p.m. curfew for Friday and Saturday nights. On my first date, a guy I really like got upset when I told him what time I had to be home. He

said all the other girls my age he’s dated have midnight curfews. He wanted me to try to convince my parents to extend mine to midnight, too. If they refuse, he wouldn’t take me out anymore, he said. What should I do? Please hurry with your answer. – Penni, York, Pa. Penni: Since your date can’t accept your curfew, tell him goodbye. There are many boys, I’m sure, who will be happy simply to be with you and won’t complain about your curfew.

8CROSSWORD

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Defenders need entry cards also Mary Lou Retton, who won one gold, two silver and two bronze medals in the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, said about her training regimen: “I gave up my childhood. I missed proms and games and high-school events, and people said it was awful. I say it was a good trade.” Her hard work gained her entry – the fifth letter of my “trade” acronym – into the United States Olympic team. Bridge players should always keep their eyes on entries. It is easier for declarer, who can see all of his assets. But for the defenders, it is no use having winners ready to be cashed if that player does not have an entry card to gain the lead. In this deal, how should East hope to defeat three no-trump after West leads a fourth-highest spade four? When the dummy comes down, East should count up the points. South showed 15-17, dummy has 12, and East holds 10. That leaves only 1-3 for West. If West has king-fifth of spades, there is no danger. But if West has only the spade jack, he cannot have an entry card in another suit. East must reject the usual defense of winning with the spade ace (third hand high) and returning the queen. South would duck, take the third spade, and run the club queen to collect an overtrick. Instead, East must smoothly play his spade queen at trick one. Yes, if South ducks, he makes his contract. But why would he? That would be suicidal if West has the spade ace-jack and club king. Instead, South will win the first trick and take the club finesse. But East wins with his king, cashes the spade ace, and leads his last spade for down one.

ADVICE & PUZZLES

Page C6 • Saturday, July 27, 2013

8ASTROGRAPH By BERNICE BEDE OSOL Newspaper Enterprise Association

TODAY – Some of the grateful recipients of your past favors will find a number of ways to repay you in the year ahead. They will go out of their way to help you achieve your social and material goals. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Substantial returns are in the offing from all the effort you’ve expended on something that has yet to yield fruit. That big payoff you’re looking for is just around the corner. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – One of your most valuable assets will be the ability to motivate others to get off their duffs. You will inspire people to get something done. Go ahead and lead, they’ll follow. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Your material aspects continue to look quite encouraging. Follow the same formula that you’ve been using and you should be able to get a profit through both direct and indirect action. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Although a friend of long standing might come to you for help, ironically, you could be the party who’ll derive the greatest benefits from it. Be open-handed in all that you do. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – To get others to be more effective, let them think your good ideas are theirs. By doing so, you’ll be the one who will end up with the greatest success. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Go out of your way to touch base with some old friends. Owing to something new that’s stirring, it’s to your advantage to maintain as many strong relationships as you can. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – You’re still in a very fortunate cycle where benefits can be derived from handling tasks and assignments as effectively as possible. Do the best you can and focus, focus, focus. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – This is an excellent day to enter into serious negotiations, provided each party is as concerned about protecting the rights of others as they are their own privileges. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – You have a natural ability to take something that’s old and transform it into something far more useful. You’ll get a chance to use this in both your work and social life today. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Something good is likely to happen that should strengthen the bonds between you and your special someone. It’ll be up to you to take full advantage of this excellent opportunity for growth. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – You’re on a productive roll when it comes to wrapping up deals, but it’ll be up to you to take full advantage of favorable circumstances. Put your priorities in order and handle what’s most important first. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – If at all possible, do not delegate any important assignments to a subordinate. Even if it puts you under some pressure, you’re the one best equipped to handle the matter.

Boyfriend’s man-of-mystery act inspires wonder Dear Abby: My boyfriend and I have been dating for a year, and it has been wonderful. He’s amazing and sweet. We went to the movies for our anniversary and about 50 minutes into it, he turned to me, said he didn’t like the movie and he wanted to leave. I was enjoying it, but I didn’t want to force him to watch it, so we left. When we were out of the theater I asked him why he didn’t like it, and he told me he didn’t want to discuss it. I pressured him for an answer a little bit, but he told me to forget it. This has been bugging me. Should I leave it alone? I understand it’s not that big a deal, but he has done this a few times before – not explaining things when I ask. I am confused about why he won’t tell me. – Puzzled in The Multiplex Dear Puzzled: There may have been something in the movie that made your boyfriend uncomfortable. Perhaps it triggered a memory of something in his past that he didn’t want to be reminded of. Or, he may have been bored by the film and so centered on himself that he didn’t care that you were enjoying it. Your boyfriend may be wonderful and amazing, but he also appears to be a poor communicator. This would be a deal-breaker with some women. Only he can tell you why he’s this way, but if he

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips hasn’t opened up in the year you have been seeing each other, it isn’t likely to change. Dear Abby: My husband has erectile dysfunction for which he takes medication. He gets it from a friend. I have discovered he takes the medication with him when he travels. He swears he isn’t cheating on me and that he’s faithful. Should I believe him? – Suspicious in Arizona Dear Suspicious: I confess, my knee-jerk reaction after reading your letter was, “Uh-oh!” Then I picked up the phone and called Bruce Landres, M.D., in Los Angeles. His first words were, “That’s an interesting question.” He then went on to say that if your husband has prostate problems in addition to his erectile dysfunction, you should believe him, because last October the FDA approved a low dose of one particular E.D. drug for the treatment of benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH). (This low dose is not enough to assist in infidelity.) You should discuss this further with your husband because it would be much safer for him to get this kind of medication from his physician, who knows his medical history,

since E.D. drugs can sometimes cause serious side effects. P.S. Another thought: It’s also possible your husband watches adult videos when he travels and needs “the pill” for his own entertainment. You’ll never know unless you ask him. Dear Abby: My daughter was married recently and has been sending out her thank-you notes. When she checked her registry to determine if all her gifts had been accounted for, she saw that her stepbrother and his wife purchased a gift, but it was not mailed by the department store. We’re assuming that it was brought to the wedding, but it’s nowhere to be found. How can we resolve this delicate situation? She wants to tell her sister-in-law, but she is concerned it might have been an oversight and be embarrassing. She plans to contact the wedding venue, but it has been three weeks and you’d think if something had been left behind that they would have contacted her. We are also going to check with the friends who packed up the cars. Any other ideas? – Steve in Florida Dear Steve: Because your daughter knows a gift was purchased by her stepbrother and his wife, she should ask them how it was to be delivered because it might have been lost en route. Such things have been known to

happen, which is why it is always wise to request that a merchant provide proof of delivery. That way the recipient signs for the package, and everyone is assured it didn’t “fall off the truck.” I doubt the stepbrother and his wife, having gone to the expense of buying something, would have forgotten to give it to your daughter. I also doubt the couple who packed up the gifts would have overlooked one. As to the venue where the wedding was held, one would think that if a package had been left behind they would contact the family that rented the place, if only to protect their reputation. Dear Abby: We recently moved to another neighborhood. Most of the residents are elderly. Our closest neighbors are a very nice couple in their 70s. We’ve gotten along well, but a problem has arisen and I’m not sure how to handle it. I am a keen do-it-yourself enthusiast. When I get home from work at 2 p.m., I love to go into my workshop and work on one of the many projects I always have going. I’ll do this for a couple of hours until my wife and kids get home. I admit, it probably gets a bit noisy with all the power tools, hammers, etc., and I usually leave the door open to let some air in. My neighbor approached

me today and told me his wife usually naps from 2 to 4 every afternoon, and the noise I make is disturbing her. Until he told me that, I had no idea their downstairs bedroom is only a few feet from our communal fence. (My workshop is right up against the fence.) Would it be rude to suggest she find another time to nap or maybe sleep in another room? I can’t imagine having to sit around and waste time every afternoon waiting for her to finish her nap, especially since she has most of the day to nap while I’m at work. This doesn’t seem fair to me. My wife thinks I’m being a bit hard, so we agreed to accept your opinion on this. – D.I.Y. Guy Dear D.I.Y. Guy: I’m pretty sure your neighbor’s wife takes her naps at the time of day when she needs one, and she would be unable to adjust her sleep schedule to accommodate you. However, your idea of suggesting she try sleeping in another part of the house so she won’t be disturbed is a good one. Or you might agree to a compromise so she starts her mid-day rest period a little earlier, and you start your projects a little later. That way you would both get what you need.

An enlarged hernia should be surgically repaired Dear Dr. K: I have an inguinal hernia. Do I need to have it repaired? If so, what will the procedure involve? Dear Reader: An inguinal hernia occurs when part of the intestine bulges through a weak spot in the abdominal wall, near the groin. The bulge can be small or large. There is a wall of tissue between our intestines and other abdominal organs and the skin of our belly. That wall is composed of muscles and a tough layer called fascia. You see the muscles when a person has trained his abdominal muscles so intensively that he has “washboard abs.” That wall of tissue is supposed to keep the intestines

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff and other abdominal organs inside the abdomen. But holes can develop in that wall. When a part of the intestines pushes out through the hole, it’s called a hernia. When the hernia occurs in a particular area in the groin, it’s called an inguinal hernia. (I’ve put an illustration of an inguinal hernia on my website.) Men are more likely than women to develop this kind of hernia. At first, an inguinal hernia may not cause symptoms, or it may cause only heaviness or

pressure in the groin. As the hernia grows, it produces an abnormal bulge under the skin near the groin. It is likely to become larger and more uncomfortable until it is repaired. As the hernia enlarges, there’s a small chance that a portion of herniated intestine may become trapped and unable to slide back into the abdomen. If this happens, the trapped intestine can twist and die because its blood supply is cut off. An inguinal hernia will not heal on its own. If your hernia is causing any symptoms, or has become even a little larger, you should talk to your doctor about having it surgically repaired.

Hernia repair may be done through open or laparoscopic surgery. Both usually are done on an outpatient basis. Most inguinal hernias are repaired by open surgery. The surgeon makes an incision in your groin, then pushes the herniated tissue back into place. He or she repairs the hernia – the hole in the wall of tissue – by stitching together the edges of the hole. It’s no different from stitching together a hole in a shirt. A small piece of synthetic mesh material reinforces the area to prevent another hernia. In laparoscopic hernia repair, a surgeon makes small incisions in the abdominal wall. He or she then inflates

the abdomen with a harmless gas and inserts a laparoscope, a tube-like instrument with a small video camera and surgical instruments, through the incisions. Viewing the internal scene on a monitor, the surgeon pushes the herniated intestine back into place. The hernia opening is repaired with surgical staples. Laparoscopic surgery usually has a faster recovery time than open surgery. There are advantages and disadvantages to both types of surgery. Talk to your surgeon about which option is best for you.
