Crowds pack downtown Geneva for annual arts fair By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com GENEVA – DeKalb resident Gretchen Bisplinghoff came to the Geneva Arts Fair on Sunday with a purpose: to find a unique birthday gift for her longtime friend in England. “I hope I find it,” she said. Bisplinghoff was among the thousands of people who spent the weekend strolling the four blocks of Third Street that were lined with photography, paintings, jewelry, sculptures and, among other items, clothing. Although unseasonably cool – temperatures were in the 60s – organizers credited the fall-like weather for the packed streets in the mornings and the crowds that lingered after the 5 p.m. closing time, at least on Saturday. “You can’t see a blank spot on the street right now,” Laura Rush, communications manager of the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, said Sunday morning. The chamber annually presents the juried arts fair, which draws about 20,000 people to downtown Geneva, Rush said. She noted it’s always a plus to introduce out-of-town visitors to the city as well as bring in business for local shops and restaurants. “You can’t help but win,” she said. New this year, the Geneva Arts Fair offered a patron of the arts program, Rush said. She said participants could pre-purchase coins valued at

She said it was a way of showing artists that “Geneva’s behind you.” Erin Melloy, who has worked with the chamber on the fair since its beginning, said it appeared people were buying. “We’re seeing a lot of artwork walking out,” she said. First-time Geneva Arts Fair participant Jill Miller said she was lucky and happy her wearable art was featured in the event, which brought a good flow of shoppers and lookers to her booth. “It’s a really good, quality show,” the Urbana resident said after finishing a conversation with an attendee.

River Rockhouse Contractors deny liability closed for now, for Aquascape roof collapse will reopen soon By ASHLEY SLOBODA

asloboda@shawmedia.com

By JONATHAN BILYK jbilyk@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – A little over a year since changing its name to reflect a new musical direction, a downtown St. Charles club will alter course yet again. The River Rockhouse, 106 S. Riverside Ave., has closed temporarily, the family that owns the building and the business confirmed Monday. They said the restaurant portion of the business will reopen “in a week or two.” The club announced the news first on Facebook, indicating it would reopen soon under “new management.” Aaron Turner, part of the family business, said the River Rockhouse had struggled to draw enough patrons to the club to take in its live musical acts to justify continuing to operate the venue. “The current management was not doing a good job getting people in the door to see the bands,” Turner said. The club had formerly operated as Chord on Blues when it first opened in 1996. But last spring, the owners opted to take the club a different direction, changing the

name to the River Rockhouse to reflect a different variety of musical acts, including cover bands, original rock ’n’ roll and indie bands. The club also featured comedy acts. However, the River Rockhouse had been losing money for some time, Turner said, prompting ownership to shut down the music venue, for now. “It makes it hard to pay the bands,” he said. He added that the owners are bringing in a new management group to operate the business with a renewed focus on its restaurant and outdoor patio with live acoustic entertainment. He declined to identify the prospective new management, saying negotiations are ongoing. Turner said the River Rockhouse could again host live bands on its club stage. But he said that would not happen until the owners could “heal our wounds.” He indicated the owners would be open to selling the live music venue portion of the business to a different group “who wants to run it as something different.”

ST. CHARLES – Contractors who worked for Aquascape Designs Inc. are arguing they are not liable for the 2011 roof collapse at the company’s St. Charles headquarters, according to Kane County court records. Aquascape Designs of St. Charles and the Wittstock family of Wayne are seeking $13 million in damages from eight construction-related businesses, alleging they are liable for the collapse of the large “green roof.” The collapse happened after a storm dropped 20 inches of snow on the region in February 2011. The roof over the parking area collapsed, damag-

ing an exterior wall of the building. Aquascape, which specializes in making products for manmade ponds and backyard water features, relocated operations until April 2012. In its suit, Aquascape alleges the “structure was not appropriately designed or constructed.” The defendants, however, are asserting they aren’t liable because of a rider to their contract with the company. Artisan Design Build of Monroe, Wis., filed a motion July 1 that outlines reasons for dismissal. “All three counts should be dismissed with prejudice as they are barred by an enforceable waiver of subrogation provision,” Artisan’s

motion states. Since then, other contractors have made similar requests. “It is obvious from the readily understood contract language that the owner’s property insurance was intended to be its only source of recovery in the event of an insured loss,” according to a court document prepared for defendant Dewberry Architects Inc. “The owner contractually waived its rights to all claims against Dewberry and the others who provided subcontracted services in the project.” Court records indicate Aquascape has until Oct. 15 to respond to Artisan’s motion to dismiss.

Woman’s collection – about 400 dolls – spans 60 years By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com

Photos by Sandy Bressner – sbressner@shawmedia.com

Ellen Jo Ljung shows Alaskan dolls, just some that make up her prized collection, at her Geneva home. RIGHT: Maasai warrior dolls make up part of Ljung’s vast collection.

This was never intended to be an investment. … When it’s time for me to get rid of them – because I don’t think anyone in my family can or will take them all – it’s too bad they aren’t documented to go somewhere.” Ellen Jo Ljung, of Geneva, on eventually downsizing her doll collection

shoes. Grandma’s doll has a place of honor amid all the others. Ljung’s collection includes dolls made by Holocaust survivors, done as part of their therapy to recover from their ordeal. One is a grouping of Jewish musicians clad in long black coats and hats – with bushy beards and ringlets – passionately playing their instruments. “My father’s family was Jewish and in Poland,” Ljung said. “My father survived because his mother was a widow who married an American who brought them here in 1934.” Ljung said her personal collection began when she was about 10 years old. Her father brought her an Alaskan doll. “Alaska became a state in

1959, and I think he bought this in 1957,” Ljung said. “And my mother went ballistic when he brought it home. ‘George, how could you be so extravagant?’ This was an expensive doll, and my dad got in trouble with my mom for it. Later we found the price tag on it, and it was $10. But that was over $80 [back then].” Her father was vice president and general counsel for the Brundy Corporation, with offices all over the world – which is why he traveled so much, she said. One doll wears the native garb of Nizhny Novgorod, Ljung said. The communists renamed it Gorky for Soviet writer Maxim Gorky. The doll, which is more than two feet high, wears navy blue native garb trimmed in cream

with intricate embroidery and everything covered up to her chin. “My father was there helping the city modernize,” Ljung said. “My father had to buy her, but they were not allowed to take dollars and we did not have enough rubles. This was March 1993, and we really wanted her. The young woman said, ‘I’ll take dollars, but you have to be surreptitious.’ Moscow was a pretty free-forall place in March of 1993.” Ljung added to her collection, as did family, friends and neighbors. When her son was working in Australia, he added an Australian hiker doll to her collection, complete with tiny corks on strings hanging from his hat – to keep the flies away, of course.

She also has a pair of old Polish dolls given to her by elderly neighbors at their last house. They were dying of cancer. “They asked if I would give them a home,” Ljung said. And of course, she did. But Ljung acknowledged that at some point in their retirement, the couple will downsize, and the doll collection will be broken up. Although individual pieces could be considered museum quality, without documentation – such as where and when they were made – no museum would take them. But Ljung said she collected dolls for 60 years for the sheer joy of having them. Family will take some and others probably will be sold. “If you care what happens [to your collection], you need to document,” Ljung said. “This was never intended to be an investment. … When it’s time for me to get rid of them – because I don’t think anyone in my family can or will take them all – it’s too bad they aren’t documented to go somewhere.”

BLACKBERRY TOWNSHIP – The dolls in Ellen Jo Ljung’s house gaze at visitors from their glass-covered cabinets, inviting all to appreciate their unique beauty. There is a Polish doll, probably Medieval, perhaps a warrior because of his sword. He has red puffy sleeves, a bejeweled red hat accented with a feather and a cup fastened to his belt. He looks as if he is about to step out of the cabinet and give a greeting. “We bought him in Krakow after my mother died,” Ljung said. “My father was Polish, but he was born in Russia.” She has two sets of Maasai dolls both bought in Tanzania, a doll from the West Indies, dolls from Russia, from Australia, Austria, France, Sweden, Australia, Japan, Ireland, South Korea, Scotland and England – just to name a few. Ljung (pronounced Yoong) has about 400 dolls in a collection her father started 60 years ago. When they bought their house 13 years ago in Blackberry Township, her husband, Don, designed it with the cabinets and their glass fronts and adjustable shelves so that the collection would be well-displayed. Stunning in its diversity, the collection represents a United Nations of countries and cultures. From three-feettall down to near toy-soldier tiny, the dolls occupy shelf after shelf, room after room, documenting a remarkable depth of humanity, history and art. “Every doll has a story,” Ljung said. The story of Ljung’s dolls began with her grandmother’s doll, a traditional Polish jester doll. She easily is distinguished from the others as a doll that was played with by a little girl. Made of cloth with a painted ceramic face, its legs are done in a now faded floral pattern and wearing ballet

ST. CHARLES

By AL LAGATTOLLA alagattolla@shawmedia.com

The documentary “Bully” will be shown at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Arcada Theatre, 105 E. Main St., St. Charles. For information, visit www. changingchildrensworlds.org. The screenings are free, but the presenter, Changing Children’s Worlds Foundation, asks for donations of $5 for adults and $3 for students.

Kimberly Svevo-Cianci, the co-founder, president and executive director of Changing Children’s Worlds, said the organization sought to put on the presentation because “by addressing the issue of bullying with students and parents and teachers, we can raise awareness about the negative impact on so many children in our communities today, and hopefully reduce the trauma and heartache of these children, so that they have a chance for a more positive life expe-

rience.” The documentary is notable for including footage of actual bullying taking place on a school bus, as well as interactions between families and school administrators on the subject. She said the key is helping bullies understand that “there are better, alternative ways for social interactions to take place, where everybody wins.” Among the sponsors are Kaneland School District 302 and Knights Against Bully-

ing, a group formed last year to address bullying in the school district. Kaneland counselor Patrick Trapp will speak after the movie is shown. Svevo-Cianci said the movie has been edited, so it is appropriate for those of all ages. She said it should be seen by as many people as possible. Leigh Ann Reusche, a member of the Knights Against Bullying group, the Kindness Campaign and PEAK for Kids, praised the cooperation with Kaneland. “We’re delighted that Kaneland High School is going to be working with Changing Children’s World on this,” Reusche said. “It’s a good partnership, and Patrick is very passionate about kids. And that will be a great opportunity for them to work together.”

BATAVIA

Walk offers hope, anti-drug message By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – Small crowds moved among the vendors and silent auction items at the Batavia Riverwalk Saturday afternoon while a live band played. Some ran a 5K, and others walked a mile. The Sixth Annual Chris’ Walk Against Substance Abuse is a remembrance of Vicki Foley’s son Chris, who died of a heroin overdose at age 27 in 2007. But it is an awareness campaign, a call to action and a place where those affected by addiction can get support. Foley of St. Charles hosts the walk so other families would not have to suffer the same loss. Speakers included Kane County Sheriff Pat Perez and Coroner Rob Russell – and recovering heroin addict Penny Hammersley, 32. “By the grace of God, this Monday, I’ll have a year sober,” Hammersley said as the crowd applauded. “This has affected me since I was 13. It doesn’t just affect me. It affects my family, my friends, everything I do. This drug, this disease, does not discriminate. It doesn’t matter ... where you come from or what your background is, if

you’re rich, poor, homeless, good family, bad family, abuse, support, love, hate. If it has you, it will destroy you. It takes your soul.” Hammersley of DeKalb said she found support in a 12-step program. Her message for other addicts is they are not alone and help is available. Perez praised Foley for bringing so many together to bring awareness to the problem of heroin addiction. Kane County has tallied 10 heroin overdose deaths so far this year. “Our goal is to eradicate heroin, methamphetamines, cocaine – the drugs that are just ravaging us,” Perez said. “And as hard as we fight this war, as much as we are looking out for each other, it’s really sad if you read in the newspapers to see that DuPage County, our next-door neighbor is averaging one overdose death a week so far this year. … Lake County is being ravaged. Will County is being ravaged.” Perez said his office continually tries to educate the public about heroin abuse. “The thing that is disappointing to me, personally, is how many seminars for parents throughout Kane County, in targeted areas that have the highest heroin use rate

… and 20 parents show up,” Perez said. “And we know it’s an epidemic. And It just breaks our hearts that there is not more involvement.” Perez described heroin as a scourge that “knows no socioeconomic bounds. The drug doesn’t care who you are, how much money you make, what family you come from. And we need to get people to understand, we can stop this – but it’s going to take an effort by all of us.” As a retired sergeant from DuPage County, Russell said he knows how important drug education is in curbing heroin use. “I have some ideas, but I need some more,” Russell said. “I hope you will give me a call.” Valerie Kommu, 35, Chris Foley’s sister, said she hopes the annual event educates other families so they would not go through what her family did during her brother’s 10-year battle with addiction. “We can celebrate his life by helping pass on the torch to other families that need help with addiction,” Kommu said. “Pretty much everyone knows somebody who has an addiction. But sometimes they’re embarrassed, and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about. ... We’re doing this to speak out.”

DISTRICT 303

Administrator questioned over school merger motivation By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Through his questioning of a district administrator, attorney Timothy Dwyer on Monday suggested that St. Charles School District 303 created the enrollment imbalance that contributed to controversial changes at two elementary schools. “Is this a situation you helped create?” he asked Becky McCabe, an area assistant superintendent for District 303, during a bench trial presided over by Judge David

Akemann. “Because of choice?” McCabe said, referring to a repercussion Richmond Elementary School faced for repeatedly failing to meet academic benchmarks. “No.” A group of Davis Elementary School parents filed a lawsuit against the district in 2011 over its plan to merge Davis’ and Richmond Elementary School’s attendance areas and to make Davis a K-2 primary school and Richmond a 3-5 intermediate school. Richmond – which repeatedly missed academic bench-

marks before the merger – had its adequate yearly progress status “rolled back” after the reconfiguration. Dwyer, who represents the parents, has asserted the changes circumvented No Child Left Behind regulations. School district officials have said the reconfiguration helped balance an over-crowding issue at Davis and an under-enrollment issue at Richmond. Monday, Dwyer questioned McCabe about what preceded Richmond’s enrollment problem. The school, after repeat-

edly failing to meet AYP, had to offer a choice, meaning parents had the option to transfer their children to a school making AYP. Davis – a school facing overcrowding – was one of the four schools Richmond students could transfer to. “Why’d you choose an overcrowded school?” Dwyer asked McCabe. Davis’ proximity to Richmond and the middle school it feeds into factored into the decision, McCabe said. She said state and federal rules indicated District 303 couldn’t

make enrollment a reason not to provide choice there. Referring to a district document that explained the Richmond-Davis plan, Dwyer noted that “Richmond failing AYP” corresponded to the question, “How did we get here?” Failing AYP, he said, “was the genesis of this plan, right?” “No,” McCabe said, “consequences of not making AYP caused enrollment to drop.” The trial is scheduled to resume today at the Kane County Courthouse.

SUGAR GROVE – A huge, metal corn “trophy” hung around Barret Ekle’s neck Saturday, as the 23-year-old future culinary student received applause and congratulations at John Shields Elementary School on Saturday. Ekle emerged as the winner of the first Chopped Cooking Contest at the Sugar Grove Corn Boil festival, one of the highlights of a packed second day of the festival. The event took place near the school, at 85 S. Main St., Sugar Grove. Competition such as Chopped and another cooking contest were staged inside. The festival welcomed crowds from Friday through Sunday. Ekle’s was one of 10 entries in “Chopped,” in which contestants gathered Saturday morning at Jewel to receive five ingredients that had to be included in the submitted meal – skirt steak, oranges, elephant garlic, Yukon potatoes and beets. Other ingredients could be used, but participants were judged on how well they used the five that were mandatory. Ekle made “a very simple skirt steak,” fresh-squeezed orange juice, potato salad and red velvet cupcakes. “It’s obviously a compliment,” he said after winning the event. A lively crowd of a few dozen people crowded the multipurpose room of the school for the event, pleasing organizers. Contestants took home the ingredients in the morning and brought them, ready to

be judged, to the school in the afternoon. Three judges sampled each creation. While that event was going on inside the school, the rest of the festival was rocking on an unseasonably cool weekend, with highs in the mid60s. There was a long – but fast-moving – line for tickets to carnival rides, which were full with youths and teens. On the main stage, set up on the north end of the festival, the Waubonsee Steel Drums played Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” as the first featured performers of the day on Saturday. In the Kids Zone, youths lined up for free carnival-style games, such as buckets, a catapult game and a ring toss. Those successful – and quite a few who almost were – walked away with prizes. That area, too, had a stage, with events such as an ice cream eating contest and performances by “Those Funny Little People” and Ronald McDonald. Craig Martin walked out of the ice cream contest with a smile, wearing a first-place medallion. Martin wore a shirt that read Crossfit Sugar Grove, one of several people at the festival promoting the new business opening at 760 Heartland Drive in the village. Martin, whose wife, Rebecca, is the owner of the gym, stressed that he worked out earlier in the day, which helped him justify eating four small cups of Colonial ice cream to come away as the winner. He said he hoped to one day tackle the Colonial’s signature “kitchen sink.” “I love ice cream,” he said. “I could eat it every day.”

OPINIONS LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Bringing back memories To the Editor: I read with great interest the Guest View titled “Time marches on” (Kane County Chronicle, June 22, 2013). As we little by little lose the touchstones of our past, we can only hope that the future will hold even better times and dreams for us all. Having grown up as a Gaffney in Geneva, I well remember the Memorial Day celebrations. For many years, I marched in the parade as a Brownie, carrying my huge bouquet of hydrangeas to leave on the grave of my great-grandfather, Dr. Francis M. Marstiller. I still drop by to say hello to him every time I’m in Geneva. Several years ago, my oldest daughter and I were vacationing in St. Charles and Geneva over Memorial Day weekend. It was such a treasure to once again attend the parade and the ceremonies that followed at the Westside Cemetery. The opinion piece written by Kevin Gaffney brought back those memories and truly brightened my day. I hope the future of the VFW will be as bright. Conni Jones Henrico, Va.

ANOTHER VIEW

Government collecting too much information THE WASHINGTON POST The director of national intelligence announced July 19 that a court had renewed one of the government’s most controversial surveillance programs – the collection of a vast database of so-called metadata from Americans’ phone calls. The phone metadata effort does not appear to be an obviously unconstitutional abuse of civil liberties. Yet at least two things should bother Americans about it. First is that the government is gathering so much phone call information to track what should be a relatively small number of targets. Collecting and keeping the country’s phone records results in a very

powerful surveillance tool that, if abused, could give government agents insight into how all sorts of Americans are conducting their lives. The government argues that it is very careful; it consults with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and meets strict standards, only looking at the information when investigators have reasonable, documentable suspicion to believe they are on to a terrorist group. But it is often up to the National Security Agency to apply those standards to itself, with outside review coming after the agency has accessed the metadata. Second, and related, are the justifications for amassing all of that information. Section 215

of the Patriot Act allows the government to obtain records, such as phone metadata, as long as they are relevant to a terrorism investigation. Government lawyers argue that detecting patterns of communications – those whom suspects call and even associates of those associates – has yielded information that has contributed to foiling potential terror plots. In order to produce those benefits, they say, they must have, somewhere, the whole universe of this sort of metadata, which communications firms don’t keep themselves. By that logic, nearly every record anywhere could be considered relevant. Other huge collections of surveillance metadata – though not of communications content,

which is governed by different standards – could exist. If misused, they also would pose a threat to Americans’ privacy. The House last week considered an amendment to a defense funding bill that would scale back the NSA’s wholesale gathering of phone or other metadata. The amendment didn’t pass and rightly so – tacking it onto an appropriations bill is hardly the way to hash out complex national security policy. The focus of any politically realistic reform should be on ensuring that government agents use only bits of metadata when they must. One idea is for Congress to require communications companies to store their records separately and force investigators to

approach those firms to gain access. If lawmakers did that, they would also have to require companies to develop fast ways of transferring information to the government, and they must satisfy themselves that those companies can keep users’ stored metadata secure. Another approach is to make sure the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court is tightly involved in the metadata program. If NSA agents already must articulate good reasons to examine a particular phone number, bringing them to a judge for approval hardly seems outrageous. From there, the court must carefully monitor the NSA’s success at minimizing Americans’ exposure.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

KANE COUNTY PHANTOMS

WELCOMED ADDITION Tight-knit Guillen family spends chunk of summer mentoring Phantoms By JAY SCHWAB jschwab@shawmedia.com

S

YCAMORE – Ozzie Guillen is capable of teaching Kane County Phantoms baseball players expert nuances about the game, but his famously colorful approach to the English language doesn’t make much of an impression. “We’re all like 16-, 17-, 18-year-olds, so it’s nothing we’ve never heard before,” said Mike Lee, a Burlington Central senior from rural St. Charles. “So he can kind of be himself out here. He keeps it professional, though.” This summer has provided equal parts baseball development and entertainment value for the Phantoms 17U travel team, which is coached by Oney Guillen, Ozzie’s son, with plenty of help from other members of the Guillen clan, including the former White Sox and

Marlins manager. Ozzie Guillen has been a semi-regular guest in the Phantoms’ dugout during the summer. That was the case again Saturday as the Phantoms won a pair of games in their season-capping tournament in Sycamore. “I’m a family man,” Ozzie Guillen said. “I love to be around my kids. You have an opportunity to help these kids get better and play the game, have some fun, and I don’t mind. I love it. I have a great time.” After managing the Sox to the 2005 World Series championship, chirping encouragement to the Kane County Phantoms on a July afternoon in Sycamore would seem like quite the comedown, but Ozzie Guillen said seeing baseball at the grass-roots level reinforces the purity of the game. “I think the parents sacrifice more

than the kids,” said Ozzie Guillen, now 49 years old and sporting a graying beard. “The parents should be barbecuing right now, having fun someplace, but they bring the kids here to play baseball, and we appreciate that. As a baseball fan and a baseball fanatic, we appreciate that when you see a parent try and spend time with their kids in baseball.” Oney Guillen, 27, is in his first summer coaching the Phantoms, having accepted an offer from the Sox-loving Colombe family – Ernie and his son, Steve – to break into the coaching ranks with the Phantoms. Oney Guillen has been around major league baseball most of his life through his dad, but said he missed the sport after transitioning to the insurance business the past couple years.

I think the tweeting thing, I think people overreact, I think the media overreacted a little bit.” During much of Saturday’s game against Force Elite, Ozzie Guillen sat on a bucket just outside the Phantoms’ dugout, taking breaks from scrolling through his cellphone to offer occasional words of encouragement. He joined Phantoms players and coaches in enthusiastically saluting catcher Logan Haring for a nimble, against-the-back-

stop stab of a foul popup to end the game. Haring’s father, Klent, said he’s long been a big Ozzie Guillen fan. Referring to Guillen’s uptempo diction and pronounced accent, Haring said he loved “trying to listen to him” talk during his days with the Sox. Haring, of DeKalb, said the players have been thrilled to have such extraordinary access to a former major league player and manager. “Ozzie’s come early and he’s thrown batting practice to the boys, he’s pulled some off to the side and instruct-

ed them a little bit on their hitting and fielding,” Klent Haring said. “The boys, they dig it.” Lee, also a Sox fan, certainly does, and the Phantoms outfielder thinks the feeling might be mutual. “I think he does like helping out the local kids,” Lee said. “I’m not saying any of us are going to reach the minors or anything like that but I think he likes seeing young players. I mean, he watched his sons grow up, and he obviously helped his sons with baseball. So there’s got to be somewhere deep down that he

“The first question I asked was is if the guys are serious about baseball,” Oney Guillen said. “They said they were serious and they got some talent, so I jumped right into it.” Oney Guillen’s brothers, Ozzie Jr., and to a lesser extent Ozney, also have been around the Phantoms this summer, along with assistant coach Jon Basinski. The Phantoms seldom have time for practice, so Oney Guillen said he’s had to “teach on the fly” at their weekend tournaments. He considers himself a laid-back coach. “Baseball’s supposed to be fun – just don’t disrespect the game, run the bases hard and be coachable,” Oney Guillen said, joking that he appreciates his dad popping for gas when they drive west together from Chicago. “It’s easier to coach kids when they’re willing to learn. Nobody has an attitude or anything like that, so that’s the best. It’s easier to coach kids than it is guys who make millions of dollars.” Oney Guillen made waves during his father’s tenure in Chicago for his outspoken commentary about Sox matters via Twitter, with many fans and media members opining that Oney overstepped his bounds. Ozzie Guillen said he didn’t lecture Oney to keep a lower profile. “If Oney was 10 years old, then I’d say something, but he was 25, 28 – he’s a baseball

enjoys it. I mean, he’s a dad.” Ozzie Guillen left a souring relationship with the Sox to manage the Marlins in 2012, but he was fired after one turbulent season in Miami. These days, he works a couple days a week as an analyst for ESPN Deportes and on other ESPN studio shows, such as “Baseball Tonight” and “First Take.” He keeps close tabs on Major League Baseball given his role with ESPN, and said he still pulls for the Sox, citing his relationship with current manager Robin Ventura. “I wish they’d be playing better for him,” Ozzie Guillen said. On balance, though, he has plenty of newfound free time on his hands, as evidenced by his involvement with the Phantoms, who have five Kaneland players on their roster. “A lot of people said, well, when you don’t have baseball anymore, you might die – no, I’m having fun,” Ozzie Guillen said. “I have plenty of time with my family, I go to Venezuela a lot, travel a lot. It’s been great so far.” Oney Guillen feels similarly about the dawn of his coaching career. He said he’ll play any future in baseball by ear, but considers his debut with the Phantoms to have been worthwhile. “I said [at the start of the summer] I know a lot about baseball but I’m learning as well, so let’s all learn together and hopefully make this a good summer,” Oney Guillen said. “It’s crazy how fast it’s gone by.”

Concussion chat on tap in Geneva Recent concussion legislation brought forth new awareness to head injuries. In Geneva athletic trainer Bill Durand’s view, it also produced some gray areas. Durand and a panel of health professionals hope to fix any misconceptions during a free presentation at 7 p.m. Aug. 12 at the Geneva auditorium. Catering their remarks toward parents, the group also welcomes students as it dissects the concussion process from diagnosis to the athlete’s return to competition. “We want to make sure that the students can come and listen and learn, as well,” Durand said. “As we all know, athletes in general think all things are bulletproof sometimes. ‘Oh, it’s not going to happen to me.’ ” The event will be held in conjunction with ATI Physical Therapy, Fox Valley Orthopedics and Cadence Physicians Group. Dr. Brian Babka – a sports medicine specialist with Cadence who analyzes Geneva athletes’ concussions – will be on hand along with Dr. Eric Bartel of the Fox Valley group. If there’s a prerequisite for attending, it’s this: knowing sports concussions can arise at any time, in any activity. “Concussions are not just a football thing,” Durand said. “Concussions are something that can happen in pretty much every sport out there right now. I’ve never seen one in golf and I’ve never seen one in bowling, but you never know.” Durand, who has worked at Geneva for more than a decade, has observed separate schools of thought toward head injuries – one that tends to be overly sensitive in diagnosis, and one that doesn’t. It’s important for any athlete who might have just had his or her “bell rung” to undergo appropriate testing and for all involved – par-

QUICK READ Kevin Druley ents, coaches and athletes – to be patient with the process. “This is an opportunity to educate not just the athlete, but the parent on what a concussion is,” Durand said. “Because there’s so many misconceptions and misinformation about concussions, we wanted to get as much information as possible out there.” Augie invasion: Several football players with Chronicle-area ties were on the field Saturday when Augustana College’s navy blue and gold ran past the bleu, blanc et rouge of the French national team, 20-13, in an exhibition in Lille, France. The game included an interception from senior linebacker Dylan Smith, an Aurora Christian product, to set up one of three rushing touchdowns from Vikings quarterback Sam Frasco. Augustana, which is 4-1 in overseas exhibitions since 1999, played its latest installment via a group called Global Football, which also organized a week-long French cultural visit for Vikings players.

KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE PEORIA – A record was set by Kane County Cougars pitcher Jose Rosario, but it was not a glamorous one as the Peoria Chiefs triumphed in a 14-1 trouncing to claim the three-game series Monday at Dozer Park. Rosario (0-7) surrendered four consecutive singles with one out in the bottom of the first which scored the first two runs of the night for the Chiefs (57-46, 19-17). Ildemaro Vargas added a two-run single in front of a run-scoring double off the bat of Jeremy Schaffer to put Peoria up by five. An error by Giuseppe Papaccio and a Charlie Tilson single put the first two men on base for the Chiefs in the bottom of the second for Breyvic Valera. With the runners going, Valera hit a liner to short that Papaccio caught on a leaping attempt, which began an easy 6-4-3 triple play to end the threat. There was no such luck for the Cougars (40-61, 10-25) in the next few innings as Rosario allowed four runs in the bottom of the third.

Next for the Cougars Wisconsin at Cougars, 6:30 p.m. today

Schaffer drove in a run with a fielder’s choice while Gerwuins Velazco cracked a three-run homer to make it a 9-0 lead. Three more runs for Chiefs scored in the fourth as Patrick Wisdom hit a bases-clearing double down the right-field line. Rosario let in one more run in the fifth before departing with a franchise record 13 runs allowed, all of them earned. Dan Vogelbach hit a homer against Thomas Lee (4-1) in the top of the sixth for Lee’s only blemish. Peoria’s starter gave up just three hits. The Cougars return to Fifth Third Bank Ballpark at 6:30 p.m. today to take on the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. Right-hander Justin Amlung (4-4) will start for the Cougars against fellow righty Eric Semmelhack (1-6).

Cory McKay, a 22-year-old St. Charles East graduate, is showing well in his first year driving Late Models at Sycamore Speedway. McKay broke in as a Spectators driver for a few seasons and raced alongside St. Charles’ Tim Ludke, who leads the Late Model standings. go’s D.J. Markham sits five points behind Ludke – McKay doesn’t complain. The speedway’s Spectator points champion in 2012 feels confident about his transition into Late Models, which he envisioned from the time he watched his father, John, compete at the track. “It was always a plan. I always wanted to do more with racing,” McKay said. “Once we saw that we were capable of doing something, we got a car that we could build up for it, we went out there and are doing the best we can.” McKay needs to look no further than his friend and fellow St. Charles East graduate, Ludke, for precedent for a breakthrough.

KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE. SERVINGTHETRI-CITIESAND KANELAND SINCE 1881.

• Tuesday, July 30, 2013

ycamore Speedway doubles as The Land of Chevrolets when it comes to Late Models racing. Monte Carlos and Camaros typically rule pit row, with Caprices and Novas vying for the checkered flag each week in greater obscurity. The car Cory McKay is captaining during his first season in the circuit turns heads for falling in the latter category. That the 22-year-old from the Valley View area of St. Charles still gets the most from his 1977 Caprice means he could be starting a new trend. “When we were building it, people told us to get a Monte Carlo, that the Caprices just don’t keep up,” McKay said. “It’s working pretty well for us so far. We still don’t have that first win yet, but I think we’re getting there.” McKay vaulted into sixth place in the Late Models points standings behind one runner-up feature finish and a pair of fourth-place races this month. He enters Saturday’s full show at the speedway, located at 50W086 Route 64 in Maple Park, 40 points behind leader Tim Ludke of St. Charles. While that’s not an ideal gap, or even the loftiest spot for a series rookie – Maren-

the points title last season and, still just 25, anticipates big things for Late Models with McKay in the picture, Caprice and all. “Great driver, man. He’s really impressed me. Everybody out there, he’s got their respect,” Ludke said. “Of course he races hard, but he runs clean, too. It’s great how these newer guys are doing and running as well as they are. It means there’s a bright future for this class.” That’s always what McKay has wanted to hear as part of a family that’s seen its share of racing in the speedway’s 50 seasons. McKay’s grandmother used to take his father and his siblings to the track. An older brother is bracing to get his career rolling, too. “We try to run as clean as we can, make as many friends as we can. I’ve always prided myself on that,” McKay said. “I think it helps me and the track, and if everyone likes me, they’ll give me a little more space, you know.”

KOVELS: ANTIQUES AND COLLECTING

BY TERRY KOVEL KOVELS.COM Ferock is a name that appears on art pottery but is not well known. In 2012 a vase marked “Ferock” was sold at a Humler & Nolan auction in Cincinnati for $2,760. The auction house and a few collectors knew who made it and how rare it is. Frank Ferrell (sometimes spelled Ferrel) worked in Zanesville, Ohio, in the early 1900s. He also worked for Weller (1897-1905), Roseville (19181954), J. B. Owens and Peters and Reed, all nearby Ohio potteries. He is best known for his work at Roseville designing pottery lines. The Ferock vase that just sold was made for the University of North Dakota from North Dakota clay. It was shown at the National Corn Exhibition in 1909. The Arts and Crafts style was interpreted with angular designs on one side and raised fold-like markings on the other. The 12-inch-high vase is covered with a matte, crazed, light beige glaze. It is pictured in two books about the University of North Dakota School of Mines pottery. The university’s pottery opened in 1892 and its pieces were sold, but student work was not offered until 1909. It closed in 1949. Because the vase has such a complete history and was made by an important designer, it attracted the bids of serious collectors and brought a high price. Collectors today search for the less-publicized but well-designed pottery of the 19001950s era as well as later studio pottery. The best pieces of wellknown art pottery like Rookwood and Weller can sell for more than $10,000 - too expensive for most collectors. ** * Q: About 25 years ago, I bought a solid copper lithographic printing plate at a yard sale.

for the “Mahukona Harbor and Approaches” of Hawaii. It’s also marked “No. 4101 C&GS.” Does the plate have any value?

*** A: Copper printing plates like yours were made to print surveying charts for the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (C&GS). The survey that resulted in the manufacture of your plate was done in 1910. Today the U.S. surveying agency, which manages a national coordinate system for mapping, charting and other engineering applications, is called the National Geodetic Survey. It’s part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Survey plates as old as yours and in excellent condition can sell for $150 or more. *** Q: I have an Ada Lum cloth doll with embroidered Chinese features and a long braid in the back. It is dressed in blue “pajama-style” jacket and pants, woven sandals and a straw hat. There is a tag on the doll’s wrist that says “Farmer, an original Ada Lum Doll” and “Made in Hong Hong.” Can you tell me something about the maker? A: Ada Lum began designing and making dolls in Shanghai in the 1940s. At first she made them just for friends, but as more people wanted them she started a business making dolls. When the Communists took over in 1949, Ada Lum and her family fled to Hong Kong, where she continued her business and employed other Chinese refugees. At first she worked out of her home, but by 1962 she had a shop in the Mandarin Hotel. Her dolls were popular during the 1950s and ‘60s and many were bought by American tourists. Ada Lum died in 1988. Value of your doll: about $75. ***

Life as a black Dave Matthews Band fan By SUZETTE HACKNEY Special To The Washington Post I first heard their music at an off-campus party in the spring of 1993. It was a white party, one with very few, if any, other African Americans. I mention these facts for a reason. One I will revisit. The sound, a mix of rock, blues, jazz, folk, classical, world and pure funk, woke me from my beer-soaked buzz. And that voice. It was raw and sexy, with a commanding range from falsetto to guttural baritone that left me awestruck. I was instantly obsessed and ran around the party asking the band’s name. I was told it was some group out of Virginia and that its live shows were being taped and passed around at college campuses everywhere. I found the tape’s owner and drilled him with questions. The name was the Dave Matthews Band. The group played lots of gigs around the University of Virginia because it was based in Charlottesville. The guy at the party told me a friend had sent him a tape of a performance. He said he wasn’t sure whether the band would ever blow up, but he and his frat brothers liked it. So did I. In fact, the more I learned, the more I liked. Matthews, the lead singer, was a white guy from South Africa. The bassist, Stefan Lessard, was a prodigy who dropped out of school to do what he loved. And the majority of band members looked like me. Yet when I went to my first show a year later, I saw no one else in the crowd who did. Still, I’m no stranger to being the only African American in the room. I attended predominantly white schools, had mostly white friends growing up and I’ve successfully straddled the worlds of black and white (Asian, Jewish, Indian, Latino and gay, too) my whole life, both out of necessity and because that’s just the person I am. As a reporter for the past 17 years in Detroit, a city that’s nearly 90 percent African American, I’ve met adults who are uncomfortable if they’re not around their own kind. I couldn’t imagine being that person. Since that first show in 1994, I’ve been to roughly 40 more. I try to get to at least five shows a year, traveling mostly around the Midwest. Over the years, I’ve been teased by some of my black friends who call DMB “white-people music.”

The author of this story, Suzette Hackney (third from right), joins friends in Chicago for the Dave Matthews Band Caravan Tour in 2011. At shows, some white people look at me as if I don’t belong: “Wow, you’re really a fan?” I’ve been asked while waiting hours in the fan-club line to get early access and a chance to run for the front row. I guess I don’t look the part. True story: My friend and I were waiting in a lot after a show last year outside Cleveland when a white woman stumbled over and began talking to us. “I was going to do something, but I stopped myself because I realized it was racist,” she said, slurring her words. She explained how she was going to take a picture of us to prove to her co-workers that the Dave Matthews Band had African-American fans. She said she worked with some black women who mocked her obsession with the band and who couldn’t understand what she saw in the music. It was clear that she had to walk that line of working with people of different races, but she seemed to be frustrated by their stereotypes and assumptions about her life and priorities as a white woman. I understood better than most. I wasn’t angry. I even told her she could take the picture if it was that important to her. Instead, I was just sad because this woman’s drunken rant signified something larger for me. Why are we racially identified or judged by the music we like? A friend who often joins me for

concerts, despite saying, “I hate Dave’s voice” every chance he gets, is African American. When he’s with me he counts the number of other blacks at the venue. In a crowd of 50,000, sometimes he makes it up to three or four. For him, it’s kind of a validation that we really shouldn’t be there. But I want to be there, bringing the tally of black fans in the crowd to at least five. I’m not there to represent African Americans; I’m there to get my groove on and I’m comfortable enough with myself to know that I like the music I like. Still, I’ve been thinking a lot in the past few weeks about where, as a black woman, I am supposed to be. In his remarks a week ago, after the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, President Obama talked in a personal way about race and his own experiences. He used his position to explain to folks something they truly can’t understand unless they’ve been there. And I applaud him. The only criticism I have is that because he was talking about the death of Trayvon Martin, his message mostly was framed around the African-American male experience. I, too, have been followed through stores like a thief in the night. I, too, have seen women clutch their purses or become uncomfortable on elevators. I’ve had to come to terms with the fact that for me to be a successful woman, I had no choice but to learn about other races – while other professionals have no requirement to learn about me. Nearly 20 years after I first saw the Dave Matthews Band in concert, I’m still the only “chip in the cookie,” or at least one of a few. But I embrace it. I have met so many incredible people while following this band – friends I now call family. I love the band and its music. I’ve met most of the members, and they are the kindest, most gracious people you could know. I interact with them on social media and I try in different ways to let them know they appeal to people in all walks of life, or at least mine. What’s funny is that although I’ve never met the band’s namesake, I know he sees me out there. We often make eye contact at shows. And last December, after the encore at a concert in Philadelphia, he found me, a brown face in the sea of white ones, smiled and reached down from the stage and handed me his guitar pick.


DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips Tell the customer that for the child’s safety to please remove him/her from the counter. And if the child has a dirty diaper, make sure you have a large supply of sanitary wipes on hand so staff and customers will be protected from the bacteria. Dear Abby: After years of enduring overdraft charges and dodging bill collectors, I have finally gotten my financial house in order. I pay all of my bills, and I pay them on time. However, I have very little money left over at the end of the week. Many of my friends have two-income households or use credit cards when they go out to eat or to the movies, which is often. I want them to know that because I decline their invitations does not mean I’m anti-social – I just can’t afford it. I have said so at times, but I hate to be a broken record. I want them to know that I appreciate being invited, and don’t be offended when I am unable to join you. – On Track But Still

Broke In Maine

Dear On Track: I congratulate you for straightening out your finances. It’s not always easy to do, and breaking ingrained habits can be a challenge. The next step in your “recovery” is to KEEP reminding your free-spending friends that while you’d like to join them, you are not always able to do so. If you repeat it often enough, eventually they will get the message. It would be better if they hear it directly from you rather than read it in my column. Dear Abby: My neighbors borrow my lawnmower every summer to mow their lawns. It broke down, and I had to purchase a new one. How do I tell them to buy their own mowers? My new one is expensive. – Against Mower-Moochers Dear A.m-M.: Here’s how: Keep uppermost in your mind that it is perfectly all right to advocate for yourself. Then tell your mower-mooching neighbors that after what happened to the last one, you are no longer loaning your mower to anyone. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Give your feet a break and buy the right shoes Dear Doctor K: You’ve often advised readers to buy supportive shoes that fit properly. Can you be more specific about what to look for in a good shoe? Dear Reader: Buying the right shoe is an investment in your foot health. But how do you identify the “right” shoe? The bottom line is how you feel when you put them on. For women, the best shoes are low-heeled but not flat, with a wide, padded heel, a wide toe box and a sole that provides sufficient cushioning. In general, the higher the heel, the worse for the foot. Men tend to feel most comfortable in athletic shoes, sturdy oxfords, wingtips, loafers or low-heeled boots. Look for sturdy sole construction that provides support and cushions against shock. Buy shoes made from breathable materials that keep feet dry and less susceptible to foot fungus. Here are some useful tips when you shop for shoes: • Wait until the afternoon to shop. Your feet naturally expand

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff during the day. • Wear the same type of socks that you intend to wear with the shoes. • Ask the salesperson to measure both of your feet. Get measured every time you buy new shoes, because feet change with age. If one foot is larger or wider than the other, buy a size that fits the larger foot. (If you can afford it, buy two pairs of shoes of different sizes, and use the proper size for each foot.) • Stand in the shoes. Make sure you have at least a quarter- to a half-inch of space between your longest toe and the end of the shoe. Wiggle your toes to make sure there’s enough room. • Walk around in the shoes. Is there enough room at the balls of the feet? Do the heels fit snugly, or do they pinch or slip off? • Find shoes that fit from the start, not shoes that need to be

broken in. If a salesperson tells you, “Oh, that little pinch will go away as soon as you walk in them a day or two,” thank him or her for the advice ... and find a pair that doesn’t pinch. • Trust your own comfort rather than a shoe’s size or description. • Pay attention to width as well as length. If the ball of your foot feels compressed, ask for a wider size. • Make sure the soles provide enough cushioning. Your feet have to deal with all the weight of your body. When that big slice of cheesecake puts a couple of extra pounds on the wall of your belly, it also gives your feet more pounds to carry. Trust what your feet tell you about shoes. If your feet don’t like the shoes today, it’s likely that they will really not like the shoes a month from now.

Dr. Wallace: I’m 19, and my fiance is 24. We are planning to be married in December. He is a hard-working person. He and his brother started a pizza business together five years ago and now they have their pizza served in four locations. I met Ron two years ago at a friend’s wedding, and we’ve been going together ever since. He treats me well and gives me really nice gifts for special occasions, and sometimes he surprises me with something just because he thought I would like it. But one thing is starting to really bother me – he is very jealous. If I happen to talk to a guy, he gets upset. Lately, if I even look at another guy when we are together, he gets angry. He bought me a cell phone, and now he calls me almost every hour when we’re not together. I keep telling him that I love him dearly, but I don’t like him keeping such a close watch on me. Ron says that there are many kooks out there and that he just wants to know that I’m safe. Now I’m having second thoughts about marrying a guy who can’t seem to trust me to love him and only him. I really need to hear what you think about my situation. – Nameless, Kansas City, Mo. Dear Nameless: Ron’s jealousy is just going to get worse. By all means, postpone the wedding plans until he deals with it, and let him know in no uncertain terms that you will not put up with such disrespectful treatment. Be prepared to end the relationship if he doesn’t take you seriously. Please read the following letter from a woman who married someone like Ron. I have

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace received many similar letters from girls trapped in relationships with jealous, possessive males who need psychological counseling: Dr. Wallace: This letter is intended to speak to young ladies who have overly jealous, possessive boyfriends. My advice is to get rid of them immediately! Please print my letter. If I can prevent just one lady from suffering my fate, I will feel better. My fiance was also jealous and possessive, but I thought things would be fine after we were married. However, I was wrong! The day after the wedding ceremony, he told me that I was now “his.” Every day was a living nightmare. I should have left him immediately, but I kept hoping he’d change. He never did, and once I had children, I was trapped! Let me tell you how he operated. A trip to the store or church meant an hour of questioning: “Who did you see? Who did you talk to? Which way did you drive?” He then drove the same streets and checked the mileage to see if I had lied. Eventually, he simply cut me off from the outside world. I had no money, no car, no telephone, no television, no social life and no hope. Finally, with the help of my oldest son, I was able to escape 20 years of mental and physical torture. I am now an old woman, and this beast is dead, but my memories are vivid and the scars are deep. – Nameless, Peoria • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@ galesburg.net.

Dear Abby: I work in the print center of an office supply store. Often when parents of small children come in to get copies made, they’ll sit their babies or toddlers on the counter while we discuss their needs. Sometimes these children have dirty diapers. While I am not a parent, I do understand that small children have a tendency to run off or otherwise misbehave if they are left standing. But sitting children on the counter strikes me as unsanitary and unsafe. Would it be appropriate to ask these parents to remove their children from the counter? Because my workplace is geared toward satisfying the customer, I worry about offending a customer and displeasing management. I haven’t said anything so far, but this is really getting to me. – Disgusted In Ohio Dear Disgusted: After reading your letter, I confess that my first impulse was to gag. The idea of a child in a soiled diaper sitting on a counter in a place of business is, indeed, disgusting. You would be doing your employer a favor to suggest that if a child should fall off the counter, there could be liability involved.

How to defend may be unclear

CELEBRITY CIPHER

Carrie Underwood, whose singing career started when she won “American Idol” in 2005, said, “If something can be said to make an awkward moment even worse, I’m going to say it.” Some bridge bids are intended primarily to make the next player’s position awkward. And in this deal there were several uncomfortable moments. How would you critique the auction? What should happen in five spades after West leads the diamond ace? After North’s one-diamond opening, South, with a game-going hand, planned to bid first clubs, then spades, then spades again to show his 5-6. Next, West made a three-heart weak jump overcall when four hearts would have been better. If East had a heart fit, they would have taken a lot of tricks; if East was very short in hearts, West was already in trouble. It was sensible for North to rebid four clubs; South rated to have at least five. And the singleton heart looked good. Now East made a really aggressive bid with five hearts. However, South continued with five spades, strongly suggesting at least 5-6 in the black suits. And that silenced everyone. West led the diamond ace, but then did not know what to do. If South had the last diamond, West could continue with the diamond two, a suit-preference signal for clubs. But with this layout, West had to shift to the heart two (again, suit preference) to get the key club ruff. Since East’s five-heart jump strongly suggested a shapely hand with a singleton or void, West understandably led the diamond two at trick two, so the contract made with an overtrick. Tough!
