Many delay retirement, take on more work By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com

heri Moehling at 57 has sent out more résumés – six a week – and has responded to more job ads since being laid off in January than ever before in her working life. The Woodstock resident, who is creeping toward an age where other baby boomers start honing retirement

plans, realizes her age plays a major factor in a job search that seemingly has no end. It’s something she has accepted since the housing bubble popped and the economy receded in the late 2000s. Moehling had worked at a Crystal Lake car company for seven years, until downsizing forced her to be laid off, she said. Moehling then found work at a construction company in Woodstock around the time of the economic recession, but a slow

housing market ultimately forced the company to cut back late last year. “All the time, I’ve worked my whole life, I never knew of being laid off or being fired,” Moehling said. “You worked until you decided to move on, but in the last 10 years, you’ve seen more of that with companies. They just can’t keep people on. This was my second time to be laid off.”

CHICAGO – The two men who are accused of trying to rob a bank in Richmond in May while a third man was shot and killed by FBI agents are scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday. Aaron Russell, 40, of Orland Hills and Roberto Favela, 34, of Chicago were charged in May with one count each of attempted bank robbery, conspiracy to commit bank robbery and using firearms during a violent crime. On May 10, Russell, Favela and a third man traveled from Chicago to Richmond, where they planned to rob the local Associated Bank, authorities said. But the would-be robbers were thwarted by FBI agents, who had been investigating the men for a string of armed robberies of Chicago-area jewelry stores, authorities have said.

Aaron Russell, 40, of Orland Hills and Roberto Favela, 34, of Chicago were charged in May with one count each of attempted bank robbery, conspiracy to commit bank robbery and using firearms during a violent crime. They are set to enter a formal plea at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sheila Finnegan.

Judge tosses bid for hastened Ill. concealed carry By JIM SUHR

At a glance

The Associated Press ST. LOUIS – Gun-rights advocates who failed to sway a federal judge into letting Illinois residents immediately tote firearms in public under the state’s new concealed-carry law announced Monday they’re asking an appeals court to intervene. The notice of appeal to the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit of Appeals by Mary Shepard and the Illinois State Rifle Association came three days after U.S. District Judge William Stiehl tossed out their lawsuit, siding with the state in ruling it is moot. The Illinois Legislature passed the last-in-the-nation concealed carry law July 9 against Gov. Pat Quinn’s vehement objections. It gives Illinois State Police 180 days to set up a program

In a 10-page ruling, U.S. District Judge William Stiehl agreed with the position of Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office: Challenging the legality of the span state police have to set up the program would require Mary Shepard and the state rifle group to file a new complaint spelling out why such a wait is onerous or illegal.

Peter, Paul, Mary and me at the Raue A bundle of ripened Baby Boomers went out last Saturday night and had a really groovy time. No, they didn’t go out to dinner at IHOP. Nope, they weren’t playing bingo. And uh-uh, it wasn’t a field trip to Walgreens to check out the latest in raised toilet seats. These children of the ’60s flocked to the Raue Theater in Crystal Lake to spend an evening with 75-year-old Peter Yarrow, former member of the musical group Peter, Paul and Mary, the paradigm for the folk music movement of yesteryear. Today’s youth would describe them as three dudes who sang with swag and were really poppin’. But to us oldsters, they were the conscience of our generation put to music. Yep, those of us with high mileage were out in force. You could tell because the lines to the washrooms were long and our hair, what was left of it, was short. But there was no lack of fond memories, and somehow our minds would quickly and deftly recall the faded lyrics of songs gone by. Sitting in our seats before the show,

JUST HUMOR ME Michael Penkava we commented about how plain the stage set was: just a couple of stools and microphones with a blank recessed curtain. A simple setting. Kind of like the music itself. And kind of like how we used to be as well. Peter looked old as he walked out and gingerly sat himself down on the stool. When he started to sing, you could notice a bit of aged softness in his voice, but even so, what he sang about was as mighty as the day the music was notated and the lyrics were penned. Puff was still magic, the lemon tree was still pretty, and the kisses were still sweeter than wine. But I noticed something different about Peter’s message. In the olden days, he and Paul and Mary were urging us to hammer out justice and warning and love. But it appears we didn’t listen. As teenagers we protested against injustice, but when we grew

old enough and powerful enough to really change it, our generation just became a part of it. Now it was as if Peter was reminding us of what time and life had made us forget. That it was not too late to remember. Peace. Love. Brotherhood. Peter, Paul and Mary sang their songs as anthems, not just as melodies. They asked us how many times can a man can turn his head, pretending he cannot see. They wondered how many ears must one man have before he can hear people cry. They questioned how many deaths will it take till we know too many people have died. And back then we listened and nodded our heads in wonderment and accord. So there we were … old, grey folkies sitting there being entertained by an old skinny, balding man with a guitar. We listened and sang and laughed and cried. And we once again nodded our heads in wonderment and accord. But there was a bittersweetness floating in the air. For when we first heard those refrains, we were young and filled with the hope of change and new beginnings. Now the cobwebs of “If

only” and “What if” clung heavily to the harmonies of those lyrics. But Peter well knows the times they are a-changing. He now campaigns to reach the hearts of the children, the new generation, to teach them about the devastating effects of disrespect and intolerance and ridicule and bullying. And when the day is done, when the ship comes in, he hopes our children and grandchildren will not have to wonder where have all the flowers gone. And just like that, Peter walked off the stage and was leaving on a jet plane, reminding us all that the answers, my friend, are still blowing in the wind.

• Michael Penkava is a retired teacher who taught for 35 years at West Elementary School in Crystal Lake. He had a chance to briefly interview Peter, but forgot his questions and just babbled on like a fanatical teenaged groupie. But he did get an interesting quote from Mr. Yarrow, who stated, “Thank you.” He can be reached at mikepenkava@comcast.net.

Pope Francis says he won’t judge gay priests By NICOLE WINFIELD The Associated Press ABOARD THE PAPAL AIRCRAFT – Pope Francis reached out to gays on Monday, saying he won’t judge priests for their sexual orientation in a remarkably open and wide-ranging news conference as he returned from his first foreign trip. “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” Francis asked. “We shouldn’t marginalize people for this. They must be integrated into

society.” Francis’ predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, signed a document in 2005 that said men who had deep-rooted homosexual tendencies should not be priests. Francis was much more conciliatory in his first news conference as pope, saying gay clergymen should be forgiven and their sins forgotten. The comments did not signal any change in church policy. Catholic teaching still holds that homosexual acts are “intrinsically disor-

Gov. Quinn makes three stops after criticism The ASSOCIATED PRESS SPRINGFIELD – Gov. Pat Quinn’s Monday series of good-news stops across Illinois mark the second round of trips he’s made following criticism that his frequent Chicago focus might draw a challenger from elsewhere in the state in the 2014 Democratic primary. Quinn started the day welcoming the Stanley Cup to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield with

Chicago Blackhawks’ owner Rocky Wirtz before heading to Bradley University in Peoria, where he announced a total of $4.8 million in construction grants to Bradley, Illinois Wesleyan University and Eureka College. Quinn is facing a primary challenge from fellow Chicago resident Bill Daley. While the bulk of Democratic votes are cast in heavily Democratic Cook County, Quinn has been criticized by Democratic leaders outside of the Chicago area who say he hasn’t

paid the rest of the state enough attention. Quinn spokeswoman Brooke Anderson has said the governor was previously tied up in Springfield because of the state’s pension crisis. Illinois is facing a $97 billion pension shortfall, and lawmakers have been unable to reach a deal to solve the problem. Monday’s trips followed Quinn’s visit to Galesburg in western Illinois last week for President Barack Obama’s economic address at Knox

College. The grants Quinn announced Monday are part of $90 million set aside this year in the Illinois Jobs Now capital construction program that renovates and expands campus facilities for private and public colleges. Quinn also later announced an additional $3.1 million in construction grants for Augustana College, Knox and Montmouth Colleges during a visit to Augustana’s Rock Island campus.

In Rockford, he formally awarded the Rock River Water Reclamation District $15 million in low-interest loans to connect the village of Winnebago to the reclamation district’s treatment plan, complete repairs and reduce area sewer backups. He says the projects, part of the state’s $1 billion Clean Water Initiative that is funded by annual federal grants and the federal stimulus program, will create 132 construction jobs for area trade union members.

U.S. begins new Mideast peace bid

Metra legal fees climb as problems linger

By MATTHEW LEE The Associated Press WASHINGTON – With a cast of characters that has presided over numerous failed Middle East peace efforts, the Obama administration launched a fresh bid Monday to pull Israel and the Palestinians into substantive negotiations. Despite words of encouragement, deep skepticism about the prospects for success surrounded the initial discussions, which were opening with a dinner hosted by Secretary of State John Kerry. He named a former U.S. ambassador to Israel to shepherd what all sides believe will be a protracted and difficult process. Former envoy Martin Indyk, who played key roles in the Clinton administration’s multiple, unsuccessful pushes to broker peace deals between Israel and Syria and Israel and the Palestinians, will assume the day-to-day responsibility for keeping the talks alive for the next nine months. Kerry called Indyk a “seasoned diplomat” and said he “knows what has worked and he knows what hasn’t worked.” Neither Kerry nor the State Department would say what has worked in the past, although the fact that there is no peace deal now would seem to indicate that nothing has worked in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian standoff. President Barack Obama echoed Kerry’s hopeful sentiment in a White House statement that said Indyk “brings unique experience and insight to this role, which will allow him to contribute immediately as the parties begin down the tough, but necessary, path of negotiations.” The Israeli side will be led by chief negotiator Tzipi Livni, a former foreign minister who was active in the Bush’s administration’s ill-fated Annapolis peace talks with the Palestinians, and Yitzhak Molcho, a veteran adviser to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who was part of the Israeli team involved in Obama’s two previous attempts to broker negotiations. Those two efforts relied heavily on Dennis Ross, a former Indyk colleague and Mideast peace envoy, and veteran negotiator George Mitchell.

Quinn, in a statement, called the colleges “educational jewels,” noting the investments will “help the schools stay competitive with other small colleges and continue to produce well-prepared graduates.” Quinn said the capital construction program will support more than 439,000 jobs over six years. “We’re all in this together,” he said in Rock Island. “We truly believe in our students, their teachers and parents.”

Supporters of Egypt’s ousted President Mohammed Morsi pray, Sunday at Nasr City, where protesters have installed a camp and hold daily rallies. Deadly clashes broke out during funerals of slain supporters of Egypt’s ousted Islamist president as the supreme leader of the Muslim Brotherhood urged his followers to stand fast after more than 80 of them were killed in weekend violence.

Leader mediates in Egypt By SARAH EL DEEB The Associated Press CAIRO – Europe’s top diplomat on Sunday searched for a way out of Egypt’s increasingly bloody and complex crisis, looking for compromises in talks with the military-backed government and allies of the ousted president. Supporters of deposed President Mohammed Morsi appealed for an end to a crackdown that killed 83 protesters over the weekend, calling for a political settlement instead. Ahead of her visit to Egypt, European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton deplored the loss of life and appealed for a political process that includes all

groups, including Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood. There were no signs that any side in the complicated conflict was willing to heed her calls. The Brotherhood rejected calls to work with the new leaders and called for new demonstrations on Tuesday, the government made no conciliatory gestures, and Morsi remained in custody in an unknown location. He has not been seen since the military coup that ousted him on July 3. On Monday Ashton began a three-day mission, her second since the military made its move. Ashton’s visit and calls by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry underscored the sense of urgency in the inter-

national community, whose leaders are pushing for an inclusive political process that puts an end to violence. In a sign of tensions and lawlessness that have gripped Egypt during two years of political turmoil, a dispute ended with the deaths of 15 people late Monday in Cairo. A shopkeeper shot and killed two men who spread goods in the ground in front of his store. Their colleagues set fire to the store, killing the man and 13 of his workers, police said. Ashton made no comments after her meetings Monday with the defense chief, Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, the interim president, Adly Mansour and his vice president, Mohammed ElBaradei.

CHICAGO – A published report says Metra’s spent more than $250,000 through June to cover legal fees. The Chicago Sun-Times says the embattled transit agency has hired three outside law firms, along with a mediator and a crisis strategy firm. The newspaper says the figures come from heavily redacted documents it obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. Metra’s been embroiled in legal problems since ousted CEO Alex Clifford left with a $718,000 separation agreement. He’s said he was forced out of the agency for resisting pressure from House Speaker Michael Madigan and others over jobs and construction contracts.

Man with knife shot, killed by Chicago officer CHICAGO – Chicago police say an officer shot and killed a man when he lunged at them after stabbing his estranged wife. Chicago police say the shooting happened Sunday night on the city’s South Side. Police say officers responding to a domestic dispute found the woman in front of a home.

Prostitution raids rescue 105 people By PETE YOST The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Declaring child prostitution a “persistent threat” in America, the FBI said Monday that authorities had rescued 105 young people and arrested 150 alleged pimps and others in a three-day sweep in 76 cities. The agency said it had been monitoring Backpage. com and other websites as a prominent online marketplace for sex for sale. Backpage.com said that it was “very, very pleased” by the raids and that if the website were shut down to the advertisements, the ads would be pushed to sites that wouldn’t cooperate with law enforcement. The young people in the roundup, almost all of them

girls, ranged in age from 13 to 17. The largest numbers of children rescued in the weekend initiative, Operation Cross Country, were in San Francisco, Detroit, Milwaukee, Denver and New Orleans. The operation was conducted under the FBI’s decade-long Innocence Lost National Initiative. The latest rescues and arrests were the largest such enforcement action to date. “Child prostitution remains a persistent threat to children across the country,” Ron Hosko, assistant director of the bureau’s criminal investigative division, told a news conference. “We’re trying to put this spotlight on pimps and those who would exploit.” In Operation Cross Country, federal, state and local

authorities cooperated in an intelligence effort aimed at identifying pimps and their young victims. The FBI said the campaign has resulted in rescuing 2,700 children since 2003. The investigations and convictions of 1,350 individuals have led to life imprisonment for 10 pimps and the seizure of more than $3.1 million in assets. In their efforts to identify child victims, investigators seek help wherever they can find it – in some cases from adult prostitutes, Hosko said. He said almost all the victims in sweeps like the one over the weekend are girls and that the profiles of the victims cut across racial lines and boundaries of wealth. Social media are a common denominator in many of the rescues.

Man held on $3 million bond after wife’s death WHEATON – An Addison man is being held on $3 million bond after authorities say he killed his wife and stabbed his teenage stepson. Kurtis Worley appeared Monday in DuPage County court, where he’s charged with first-degree murder and aggravated domestic battery. Assistant State’s Attorney Anne Therieau says Worley stabbed his wife, 39-year-old Martha Worley, in the head as many as 10 times and slashed the 15-year-old in the throat.

Wheeling officer dies after training exercise WHEELING – Police in the Chicago suburb of Wheeling say a 33-year-old officer died this weekend after she collapsed during a training exercise. It was reported that Shamekia Goodwin-Badger died Saturday afternoon at Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. She was taken to the hospital Thursday during training.

Survey: Many seniors not confident about future • FUTURE Continued from page A1 As baby boomers approach retirement age – the oldest of the generation began turning 65 in 2011 – various organizations and scholars have set out to determine the boomers’ effect on the workforce and their plans for their golden years. “With seniors living longer and more active lives, and with more than 77 million baby boomers turning 65 at a rate of 10,000 per day, the United States is experiencing historic growth in the 65-plus demographic,” according to the United States of Aging Survey conducted last year. “The ultimate question is: Are we as individuals and communities ready for an aging population?”

Displaced boomers The baby boomers might not be ready themselves. Moehling agreed that times have changed for a baby boomer generation accustomed to job security. Her plan was to stay at the construction company long enough to receive Social Security and then join her husband, Melvin, who retired seven years ago after building custom homes at one construction company for 35 years. Those plans have changed, as Melvin’s retirement income now is the sole source of revenue for the couple. His hobby of running a Christmas tree farm during the winter in Woodstock has become more of a priority for the couple, who also have financial “nest eggs” to carry them through Moehling’s unemployment, she said. The savings and planning likely means Moehling won’t have to work past retirement age, but the unexpected layoff has forced the couple to readjust their way of life. That’s common for many boomers. The aging survey – which was created by the National Council on Aging, UnitedHealthcare and USA Today – found that many American seniors age 60 and older are on

The surplus is projected to be gone by 2033, as the oldest baby boomers turn 87, according to the report, and Social Security will be able to pay out only 77 percent of the benefits promised. “For boomers, the biggest problem is a lot of their savings will be exhausted then and they’ll be more dependent on Social Security,” said Ryan Gruenenfelder, manager of advocacy and outreach for AARP Illinois. At the beginning of 2012, the average monthly benefit for a retired worker was $1,230. For one in three seniors, Social Security is almost all of their income and for two in three, it is more than half their income, according to the nonprofit National Academy of Social Insurance.

About 24 percent aren’t confident their income will meet their monthly expenses over the next five to 10 years, and 23 percent aren’t confident in or don’t have a financial retirement plan, according to the survey. That could be because in some cases, their income has shrunk. In 1990, the real median income for those 45 to 54 was $67,795 (in 2010 dollars) and peaked at $74,457 in 1999, according to a September 2012 report from the National Center for Policy Analysis. It has since fallen to $62,485, in correlation with the start of the recession. For baby boomers, retirement is no longer a magical day on which they will stop working, get a gold watch and live a life of leisure, said Catherine Collinson, president of the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies. More than 60 percent plan to work past age 65 or not retire at all, she said. “It’s not their parents’ retirement,” Collinson said. “Baby boomers plan and expect to work longer, delay retirement and transition into retirement in a way that involves at least working part time.” Most baby boomers, Collinson said, are delaying retirement out of necessity as they try to repair damage done

to their finances by the Great Recession, she said. “One of the most really tragic aspects of the last five years is the number of workers who were displaced due to layoffs,” Collinson said, noting that many had to dip into their retirement savings while looking for work. A 2012 study by the Urban Institute found that while layoffs during the recession were less common among older workers, it took them longer to find work again when they were unemployed. And if they did find jobs, they did so for less money. Median monthly earnings declined 23 percent after an unemployment spell for re-employed workers ages 50 to 61, compared with 11 percent for those ages 25 to 34. Moehling’s search for work as she nears retirement age involves finding a full-time job that better suits her personal interests. She contemplated retraining programs, but instead opted to volunteer at Centegra Hospital – McHenry and the Senior Services Associates Inc. of McHenry County in hopes of landing a job working with seniors. But the uncertainty over work lingers for Moehling, going on eight months of unemployment with no interviews imminent. “We’ve tried to stay within our means,” she said. “We are comfortable, but you still want to work. I still have that urge. I just don’t want to be at home.”

HOW IT IS SPENT In 2011, the Social Security funds – which include one fund for retirees, their dependents and the dependents of deceased workers, and a second fund for the disabled and their dependents – collected $805.1 billion in revenues.

even less prepared than retirees who came before them, Gruenenfelder said. “If you look at the savings rate for boomers, a good percentage of boomers only have $25,000 to $30,000 in assets,” he said. “That is not nearly enough to meet their needs.” If nothing changes, the disability insurance fund’s surplus is expected to run out in 2016, with the Social Security Administration able to cover only 80 percent of benefits. The trustees overseeing the programs recommend legislation that would either increase revenues by raising the payroll tax, or cut benefits, or a combination of the two. To make the Social Security funds solvent without raising taxes, benefits would need

to be cut by 19.8 percent, or on average $244 in monthly benefits, according to the Social Security report. One benefit-centric proposal includes raising the eligibility age, which could be problematic for seniors who can’t afford to retire but aren’t healthy enough to work. Another idea ties the growth in benefits to the inflation rate, which would curb the growth of the program but not make it solvent. On the flip side, payroll taxes would need to go up 2.66 percent to keep the funds solvent, the report said. Opponents to this idea argue that it’s unfair to current workers who have to cover the benefits of baby boomers who didn’t pay enough into the system.

WASHINGTON – A U.S. official said Monday that the National Security Agency did not monitor phone conversations between a New Zealand journalist and his Afghan sources, following claims by the journalist that his reporting was monitored by the U.S. intelligence programs revealed by NSA leaker Edward Snowden on behalf of New Zealand’s military. Officials in the intelligence community and experts said if any surveillance was done, it was more like-

ly that his phone calls were caught up by standard military intelligence monitoring of enemy communications in war zones. The Obama administration brushed off new allegations of NSA surveillance overreach, this time focusing on freelance reporter Jon Stephenson, who was in Kabul, Afghanistan, working for American news service McClatchy and other media outlets when his phone records were reportedly seized. It was the latest revelation in the ongoing debate over government snooping since Snowden in June revealed

two top secret U.S. programs that monitor millions of Americans’ telephone and Internet communications each day. In a short statement to The Associated Press, the U.S. government official said NSA did not target Stephenson or collect his phone records. A U.S. intelligence official suggested that any surveillance could have been run by the Defense Intelligence Agency, which oversees war zone intelligence missions. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the secret program. The DIA did not comment.

John Warna died Saturday following a scuffle with Park Forest police, who had to use a Taser and a bean bag gun to subdue him because he was threatening them with a footlong knife, a cane and a shoehorn. The medical examiner’s office says Monday that Warna died from abdominal cavity bleeding and blunt force trauma from the bean bags. His death was ruled a homicide.

– Wire reports

Men were charged in Rockford before indictment • PLEA Continued from page A1 Tony Starnes, 45, of Chicago, who is said to have rammed a car into one of the agent’s vehicles, was shot in the parking lot of the bank at 10910 N. Main St. The FBI was tailing the men after agents saw Favela driving a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe and Starnes driving a 2005 Honda Civic that had been reported stolen in Chicago in December, according to the FBI affidavit filed immediately after the alleged robbery attempt. The incident shook the normally sleepy town as the

incident brought a heavy police presence and swarm of local and regional media. To the Northwest Herald, witnesses described the gunshots as sounding as though fireworks had exploded. Others recounted the police vehicles that flew by and said Richmond was like a “ghost town” as the investigation ensued. Russell and Favela are set to enter a formal plea to the charges against them at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sheila Finnegan. The men initially were charged in Rockford, but last week were indicted by a federal grand jury in Chicago, where their case is now.

Russell, a convicted felon, also was charged with illegally possessing firearms. He had been previously convicted of armed robbery in 2004 and 1991, FBI officials have said. That charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. Between the two men, they possessed four loaded guns, court documents show. Attempted bank robbery carries a maximum prison sentence of 20 years; conspiracy to commit bank robbery has a maximum of five years; and carrying firearms during a crime of violence carries a mandatory consecutive sentence of five years to a maximum of life in prison.

Madigan pleased with Stiehl’s decision, says office • JUDGE Continued from page A1 before accepting applications, plus an additional 90 days to process the forms. Shepard, in court filings Stiehl weighed, called such a delay unreasonable and insisted it “constitutes an unacceptable perpetuation of the defendants’ infringement of the Second Amendment rights.” While noting she wasn’t challenging elements of the new permitting process, Shepard said her issue was over “the complete ban on carrying firearms that continues to exist until the permitting process is up and running.” In a 10-page ruling last Friday, Stiehl agreed with the

position of Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office: Challenging the legality of the span state police have to set up the program would require Shepard and the state rifle group to file a new complaint spelling out why such a wait is onerous or illegal. Madigan’s office said Monday only that it is “pleased with [Stiehl’s] decision, which supports our argument that any new claim must be raised in a separate complaint before the court.” It was not immediately clear how soon the 7th Circuit might hear arguments about Stiehl’s ruling or decide the matter. An attorney for Shepard, William Howard, offered no immediate comment in an

emailed reply to The Associated Press, other than pointing out the notice of appeal had been filed. A message seeking comment also was left with Todd Vandemyde, a National Rifle Association lobbyist in Illinois. In passing the concealed carry measure, lawmakers narrowly beat a deadline set by the 7th Circuit, which last December ruled the state’s ban on public possession of handguns unconstitutional. Madigan’s office had argued that Shepard’s lawsuit, which first helped bring about the 7th Circuit’s decision, challenged the state’s blanket prohibition on carrying a loaded firearm in public – something the new law allows.

ADA deserves celebration Twenty-three years ago this month, 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 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. Although the discrimination against Americans with disabilities was more of the passive, out-of-sight-out-of-mind variety, disabled citizens were treated as second-class citizens once, too. People who were mobility impaired paid taxes to fund public buildings that they could not enter and buses and trains they could not board. 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. 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.

A blow to death penalty The fallibility of the criminal justice system in applying the death penalty has been demonstrated again this month. The FBI announced recently its review of old criminal cases has found as many as 27 death-penalty convictions that might have been based on invalid scientific testimony. In May, the review led to an 11th-hour stay of execution in a Mississippi double-homicide case. At issue is trial testimony from FBI experts that the organization now says “exceeded the limits of science.” Support for the death penalty has fallen nationwide as DNA testing has shown how fallible the criminal justice system really is.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Staying safe in Union To the Editor: A big, heartfelt thank you to Union Trustee Larry Beebe, Village President Robert Wagner, and the part-time police department. We have been to your charming town many times, and I’ll feel much safer the next time I visit the railroad museum knowing that I won’t be run over by ATVs or a Gator driven by a resident who lost the use of his legs 27 years ago. Thank you, Mr. Beebe, for doing your elected duty by responding to the numerous complaints of residents, even though you can’t seem to recall the number of residents or the meeting where the enforcement discussion took place. I’m sure that you and the Union board must have an extremely full and busy meeting schedule to remember such minor details. Probably one of the hot topics taking up so much time and energy on further public safety is the discussion on whether to have redlight cameras in Union. I’m sorry, I forgot, you need to have at least one red light in town to have a redlight camera. My mistake.

I am a Christian Republican, and I happen to know many others. I am amazed at this letter’s overgeneralizations and find it hard to imagine that the author really believes what she writes. For her to insinuate that being a Christian and a Republican is a contradiction is indicative of someone who is skewing the facts to suit their own agenda. I hope that America wakes up and realizes that it is the Democratic agenda that is often unchristian, selfserving and problematic, and that the majority of issues we face as a nation are due largely to the government overreach espoused by the Democratic Party. Self-reliance is one of the fundamental principles under which this country was founded. I don’t know one of my fellow Christian Republicans who would deny anyone legitimately needing assistance. It is those who don’t need it yet who think they are entitled to it that has developed into a never-ending and impossible-to-fund gravy train. Melanie Horn Lakewood

teers who worked the event, and Crandall’s Restaurant for hosting the benefit. We had over 400 attendees July 15. It was a wonderful experience to have such a big turnout and support from all the community, family and friends. It was inspiring not only to us, but especially to Luke, who has been facing most of his troubles by himself until the big stroke. He is so grateful to everyone who came to support him. The money raised will be a huge help in his continuing treatments, speech therapy, and hospital bills. We would like to thank the Luke Moore team – Stephanie Johnson, Diane Helgaland, and, especially, Holly Tomasello – which came up with the idea to have the event and organized it. The Moore family is very blessed to live in such a supportive community. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Luke, Dave, Margie, Deidre, Nick and Shannon Moore Hebron

Democratic leaders loath to allow veto to become precedent House Speaker Michael Madigan always has strongly guarded the powers of the General Assembly as a coequal branch of government, so it was a little surprising when he appeared to support Gov. Pat Quinn’s line-item veto of legislative salaries in mid-July. The governor vetoed the salaries in retaliation for the General Assembly’s failure to pass a pension reform bill. In a news release the day of the veto, Madigan said he understood the governor’s frustration with the lack of progress, adding, “I am hopeful his strategy works.” Behind the scenes, though, Madigan is said to be furious with the governor’s veto. Madigan’s legal staff has been meeting with other lawyers to set strategy to either get around the veto or oppose it. So far, they are not finding much in the way of noncourt options. Attorney General Lisa Madigan would have to defend the state in a lawsuit, so she’s reluctant to issue any sort of official opinion. Also, the attorney general long has main-

tained that checks can’t be cut without an appropriation or a judge’s order, logic that Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka used last week when she announced she couldn’t issue paychecks. And since the veto means there is no appropriation, a legal opinion wouldn’t give the comptroller any actual authority to cut the paychecks anyway. The governor vetoed the individual salary lines (base House salaries and base Senate salaries, for instance), but didn’t veto the “total” lines (e.g. base House and Senate salaries combined). Could that be a loophole? Doubtful. An old attorney general opinion essentially ruled that the “total” lines aren’t actual appropriations. But why not go ahead and do it and then force Quinn to sue, some strategists have asked. The comptroller, who strenuously opposes the Quinn veto, reportedly refused because several lawyers involved with the discussions strongly opposed the idea. So that could leave a court chal-

VIEWS Rich Miller lenge by legislators, which may have been filed by the time you read this. The lawyers appear to have ruled out filing the case in Springfield, mainly because they don’t trust the Republican-leaning appellate district. But a lawsuit would be a last resort. Obviously, such a challenge would be roundly attacked by the media and by probably a lot of Republicans as cowardly. Why not just pass a pension reform bill and then override the veto later? Gov. Quinn’s legislative team has assured top Democrats that he would, of course, not oppose an override if pension reform is passed. But Senate President John Cullerton, for one, reportedly doesn’t want to give Quinn the ability to claim such a victory. And both he

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

and Speaker Madigan reportedly are loath to allow this veto to set a precedent. What if, for instance, Quinn vetoes salaries again to prod the General Assembly to make the income-tax increase permanent? Or, what if Bruce Rauner is elected? The Republican gubernatorial candidate has pledged to wage an all-out war with Springfield’s entrenched interests, privately telling some House Republicans earlier this year that he would “bring Madigan to his knees.” So allowing him this veto power would set up a near certain annual battle. State Sen. Kirk Dillard, another Republican gubernatorial candidate, has said he approves of Quinn’s veto. If Dillard is elected, would he use a similar action to force passage of what he considers to be a balanced budget, as he has implied? And even though the legislative leaders, Comptroller Topinka and even, reportedly, the attorney general all seem to be in agreement

that the governor’s veto is blatantly unconstitutional, what if they lose in court? The veto was an unprecedented move, so nobody is absolutely certain that a court would rule in their favor. Since the veto hasn’t yet been overridden, is it “ripe” enough for a court case? Or, can they make the argument that their individual salaries are constitutionally guaranteed and set in statute and, therefore, they shouldn’t have to muster a three-fifths majority to receive them? Nobody really knows the answer. A favorable court ruling, even a temporary one, could allow pension reform to move forward, top Democratic sources say. Again, the leaders are loath to do anything unless and until they come up with a new pension reform plan, so even a temporary order to issue the checks might do the trick. • Rich Miller publishes Capitol Fax, a daily political newsletter, and CapitolFax.com.

Rule changes up for debate County Board to consider 49 proposed revisions at Friday meeting By KEVIN P. CRAVER kcraver@shawmedia.com The McHenry County Board is set to debate the most substantial overhaul of its rules in recent memory. And it is just as controversial as it is substantial,

because a number of the changes are aimed at the powers of the County Board chairman. Board members are set to convene Friday morning in a Committee of the Whole to review the proposed changes – 49 in all – from its Manage-

ment Services Committee. They could go to a vote as early as the following Tuesday, if they are not sent back to the Management Services Committee, or the Committee of the Whole meeting is continued because of the sheer number of changes.

The Management Services Committee is tasked with reviewing and revising board rules after the seating of the new board after each November election. While previous boards have

Eric Widitz of Fox River Grove sculpts a beaver out of a stump July 11 near the Crystal Lake Rib House. He has been sculpting things out of wood for 30 years and does most of his carvings without any sketching. Widitz sculpts different kinds of animals with a focus on regional wildlife. To view video of Widitz sculpting, visit NWHerald.com.

OX RIVER GROVE – It’s difficult to imagine how Eric Widitz’s creatures come to life. What begins as a simple block of wood eventually is transformed into a detailed and lifelike sculpture. While primarily using a chainsaw, Widitz creates sculptures of bears, birds, fish, pet memorials, furniture and even people. He then uses chisels and knives for the fine details. A gallery of his work can be found at www. artwooddesigns.com/sculpture-gallery.html. In 1978, Widitz began his own landscape design business. He slowly began creating more intricate pieces – ranging from wooden signs to cabinetry – to eventually three-dimensional wooden sculptures. In 1999, Widitz did an on-site carving at Barrington High School and sculpted a bucking bronco, the school’s mascot, out of a 5,000-pound willow tree trunk. He chooses wood from slash piles or dead standing timber as part of his commitment to preserve the environment.

D-47 faces string of possible deficits By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – Crystal Lake School District 47 faces a future of deficits starting in fiscal 2013-14, according to the most recent financial forecast. Despite a projected surplus of $182,009 in operating funds, the district is expected to run a deficit of $234,221 across the four major funds that include operating, debt

service, working cash and life safety. The deficit nears $1 million when capital projects are included, Jeff Mason though that District 47 n u m b e r i s school board not a true in- chairman dicator after transfers and bond proceeds are used. Still, the five-year projec-

tion shows the district faces overall deficits ranging from $234,221 to $565,908 each year in that span and deficits of $500,000 and more in the operating fund, which would be against the board’s policy of breaking even or realizing a surplus in that fund each year. Compounding the problem is the board’s desire to bring on more assistant principals to help with increasing workloads at sin-

gle-principal schools, such as South Elementary, or part-time assistant principal schools, such as Indian Prairie. “At this point it’s just a projection, but it’s something the board and administration will have to focus on,” board Chairman Jeff Mason said of the shortfalls. “But we need to look to see if we can carve out a way to

The $36.3 million spending plan for the 2013-14 school year was approved by the school board Monday. Money was allocated for $2 million in capital projects, including a roof project at Three Oaks Elementary, which is nearing completion, and replacement of the driveway at Cary Junior High, which has been com- Brian Coleman pleted. District 26 The budget Superintendent has a projected $158,000 surplus in its operating funds. Within this budget, the district has increased the number of certified staff members – such as teachers, speech pathologists and psychologists – it has to 175 from 150, at an increased cost of about $180,000. District officials plan to bring back dedicated teachers for art and music, which were cut as a cost-saving measure several years ago. The plan also includes going to 90-minute language arts periods at the junior high. “The last three years we’ve gone through some challenging times,” Superintendent Brian Coleman said. “We continued to have balanced budgets and this next year we will also have a balanced budget. Within that balanced budget, we are also adding back specials. It’s a great accomplishment where the board and administration wanted to get to eventually. We said, ‘Once we could afford it, we’ll have it back,’ and we’ve kept that promise.”

Woodstock earns High Schools That Work honor By SHAWN SHINNEMAN sshinneman@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – Woodstock High School is the only school in McHenry County to follow guidelines of High Schools That Work, a national school improvement program. But, according to directors of the program that was developed by the Southern Region-

al Education Board, they’re doing it well, too. The school recently was one of 19 in the country to receive the HSTW Outstanding School Award. It was chosen out of more than 1,200 schools participating in HSTW nationwide, 13 of which are from Illinois. Principal Corey Tafoya said the High Schools That Work program has helped

staff and students better prepare for implementation of the more rigorous Common Core learning standards. High Schools That Work operates off 10 key practices for improving student performance, Tafoya said. He added that Woodstock has found some of the guidelines helpful and disregarded others that “weren’t for us.” “The whole idea of High

Schools That Work is if you do these things, you’re going to be more successful in a high school setting,” Tafoya said. A random selection of seniors in High Schools That Work schools are tested every other year under the program. Fran Cowart, coordinator of assessment for the Southern Regional Education

Board, said improvements between 2010 and 2012 assessments played a key role in Woodstock High School receiving the award. But testing hasn’t always gone over so well among students. In 2010, one of 60 seniors chosen to take the daylong assessment created a stir when he refused to take the test.

McHENRY: PLANNING AND ZONING

Proposed changes to Affordable housing, new church get initial OK limit chairman’s power By EMILY K. COLEMAN

ecoleman@shawmedia.com McHENRY – A church hoping to relocate, a new restaurant wanting to add outdoor seating and a nonprofit planning on building affordable housing for veterans all got the go-ahead from the McHenry Planning and Zoning Commission. The commission had a lengthy meeting Thursday evening, but all three hearings resulted in unanimous recommendations to the City Council, Deputy City Admin-

istrator Doug Martin said. Concerns were raised during the public comment period for two of the projects. TLS Veterans plans to build three, eight-unit apartment buildings at the southeast corner of Route 120 and Ridge Road. The nonprofit already provides transitional housing in Hebron, but the McHenry apartments would used as permanent affordable housing. Residents raised concerns over well and septic at the site, which was located out-

side the city limits until the City Council annexed it earlier this month, as well as traffic issues, Martin said. The current infrastructure should be able to handle the project, he said. Questions also were raised by some of The Chapel’s potential new neighbors, Martin said. They asked about how improvements at 414 S. Crystal Lake Road – the site the church is hoping to move to from the space it’s been renting at McHenry East High School – would affect neigh-

boring properties. They wouldn’t, Martin said. The commission also gave the go-ahead to Buffalo Wild Wings, which hopes to open a location at 3343 Shoppers Drive before the 2014 Super Bowl. All three recommendations need to go to the City Council for final approval. Martin is shooting for the Aug. 19 meeting, but because of the length of Thursday’s meeting, it might take longer to prepare the paperwork and minutes for the council.

Spending plan adds 4th-grade teacher at Three Oaks • D-26 Continued from page B1 Although the district is bringing back art and music, in addition to increasing physical education instruction, board member Scott Coffey said the district still hopes to bring back even more special classes.

“We’re not done,” Coffey said. “It’s a much easier path to ... get us to a position where everything is affordable and stable long term and have the kind of educational programs necessary for the community.” Having teachers on the high end of the salary schedule retire and come off the district’s books helped to-

ward adding staff members. Retirees were replaced with teachers who are coming in at a base salary. As part of the spending plan, the district is adding a fourth-grade teacher at Three Oaks. The district expects there will be 92 fourth-grade students at the school. With the originally planned three

fourth-grade teachers, class size would have been just under 31 students per class. Adding the teacher brings class size to 23 students per fourth-grade class. Fourth grade is when students who are English language learners transition into an English-only classroom from a bilingual classroom.

Chairman to discuss budget School got grant money with full board on Thursday for program in the past • D-47 Continued from page B1 bring that [assistant principal] to South, because we are not fully serving the teachers there.” Under new state requirements, South Elementary Principal Lisa Gott would need to evaluate 61 teachers twice this school year without the help of an assistant. The previous process called for tenured staff to be evaluated once every other year. Board member and former Principal Betsy Les said it is an overwhelming task for one principal to handle and argued that even the schools with a part-time assistant should be made whole because those part-timers are taking on responsibilities at two schools at once. “In reality you’re full time

in two places,” Les said. “Parents expect to have answers and follow-ups that day, even if the principal is at the other school.” Board member Ryan Farrell said that while he would love to have full-time assistants at all schools, trustees should consider making the two full-time assistants part time so at least each school would have some help. “If the need is just because of additional evaluations ... I don’t know if that in and of itself justifies another assistant being there,” Farrell said. Mason plans to have a budget discussion with the full board at 5 p.m. Thursday at the Core Center Central Office, 300 Commerce Drive. He said the board also must consider unknown costs such as the teachers union contract that trustees hope to finalize before the beginning of the school year.

• WOODSTOCK Continued from page B1 Tafoya said that was an isolated incident. And Cowart noted that test scores weren’t the only decisive factor in awarding Woodstock with the HSTW Outstanding School Award. “... The number of Cum Laude graduating seniors has increased from 10.3 percent to a high of 32.1 percent,” Cowart wrote in an email to the Northwest Herald. “The school’s average daily attendance rate has also increased as a result of the program.” Enrollment in the program has before this year come with an added financial incentive – albeit a small one. Woodstock High School was awarded a $25,000 grant

for its involvement during 2007, its first year under the program. Since then, funding has dwindled each year. The school received $10,000 each of the past three years, Illinois State Board of Education spokeswoman Mary Fergus said. Funding has dried up and the school won’t receive any grant for Corey Tafoya the program this year, Taprincipal foya said. It previously was used mainly for travel expenses to High Schools That Work events, he added. “We’re sad that it’s over because it provided a great opportunity to use that network and use their resources,” Tafoya said.

What it means

• RULES Continued from page B1 balked at deep and substantive changes, recent controversies – and the fact that more than one-third of the 24-member board is new after the November 2012 election – could change that dynamic. About 10 of the proposed changes would diminish the authority of the chairman, primarily through attacking the power of incumbency – the County Board after each November election elects a chairman and a vice chairman from among its 24 members. And the most significant rule change doing so runs counter to the advice of the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office. That proposed change limits the chairman and vice chairman to no more than three consecutive twoyear terms. The State’s Attorney’s Office has opined that state law does not explicitly empower Ken Koehler counties to Former impose term McHenry limits. F o r m e r County Board C h a i r m a n chairman Ken Koehler, R-Crystal Lake, served four terms as chairman before losing his bid for a fifth term Tina Hill t o c u r r e n t McHenry C h a i r w o m - County Board an Tina Hill, chairwoman R-Woodstock, in December. Calls during the latter years of Koehler’s eight-year reign to make the chairmanship popularly elected – as is done in DuPage and Kane counties – culminated last year in an unsuccessful referendum to change to a county executive form of government similar to Will County. Another set of changes counter the chairman’s incumbency by taking away its ability to appoint the chairmanships of the County Board’s standing committees in which much of county government’s work gets done. Critics on the County Board have alleged the current system heavily favors the incumbent chairman, who can secure all but one of the votes needed for re-election with the power to choose the chairmen of the board’s 11 standing committees. Another proposed change removes the chairman’s power to appoint the Committee on Committees that sets assignments for new members after each election, If approved, the four members from each of the County Board’s six districts would choose their representative. Yet another change indirectly affects incumbency by taking away two of those chairmanships. The proposed change eliminates the Human Resources and Building Projects committees and places their responsibilities under Management Services.

The McHenry County Board will meet in a Committee of the Whole to examine a radical overhaul of the County Board’s rules. There are a total of 49 changes that have been proposed by the Management Services Committee. They include: n Limiting the chairman and the vice chairman to no more than three consecutive two-year terms. n Eliminating the chairman’s power to appoint the chairmen of the County Board’s standing committees. n Eliminating the chairman’s power to appoint the committee that meets after every November election to assign board members to their committees. n Raising the number of votes needed if the chairman wants to replace a committee member to a three-fourths supermajority, or 18 out of 24 members. n Codifying which appointments made by the chairman must be approved by a full County Board vote. n Eliminating two of the board’s 11 standing committees.

On the Net You can view the existing County Board rules and the proposed changes at http:// shawurl.com/o2y. Several proposed changes are aimed at curtailing the chairman’s power to appoint to boards and commissions and blunt influence over the selection process. They were inspired by a conflict earlier this year surrounding an appointment to the McHenry County Mental Health Board, which has come under fire over its size and spending. The Public Health and Human Services Committee’s pick to fill a vacancy was overwhelmingly defeated by the County Board, prompting Hill to advance her own candidate. The committee made another selection, but Hill exercised her prerogative to not bring him forward for a vote. County Board members approved Hill’s candidate. Hill also wanted to replace a member of the public health committee, citing an alleged conflict of interest, but relented after board members expressed unease with the idea. One proposed rule change would require the chairman in many cases to first bring a nominee before the appropriate committee. Another would raise the vote threshold to a threefourths supermajority, or 18 out of 24 members, if the chairman wants to change a County Board member’s committee assignment against his or her will. There are several minor changes that could stir debate, such as the previously attempted proposal to put a second public comment period at the end of County Board meetings. Opponents say it would offer nothing substantive because all speakers will do at the end is either thank or criticize board members for how they voted during the meeting.

Wild Onion Brewing Co. co-owner John Kainz uses a forklift to move racks of beer cans.

The Wild side Onion Pub & Brewery celebrates 10th anniversary By TARAH THORNE tthorne@shawmedia.com LAKE BARRINGTON – Pete Janusas has worked at the Onion Pub & Brewery since it opened in July 2003 at 22221 N. Pepper Road in Lake Barrington. He started as a bartender for owners and Barrington High School alums, John and Mike Kainz. “I’ve always had a passion from craft beer,” Janusas said. The Kainz brothers began the Wild Onion Brewing Co. in 1996, just two blocks down from the current brewery and pub. “We were just a microbrewery back then and it was a tough market,” said John Kainz, explaining how he saw a “craft beer boom” in the mid90s that did not pick up again until 2004. “We weren’t selling as much beer as we had planned,” John Kainz said. “We decided to open the restaurant and let people come to us.” Still with limited space, the team takes their time preparing Wild Onion’s collection of brews that ship locally and nationally to eight surrounding states. Brewmasters like Janusas put in a lot of time each week, working for 12 hours on “double brew” days, John Kainz said. “We could easily expand and start three beer shifts a day,” Janusas said. “But we prefer quality over quantity and take it one step at a time.” First, the team heats enough water to fill 32 kegs and crushes more than three dozen 55-pound bags of grain. “It’s a labor of love,” Janusas said. Once the water reaches 154 degrees Fahrenheit, they spray it on the grain by hand and allow some time for the grain to begin to burn into sugar, creating alcohol. Then, they strain the sugary liquid from the grain, boil it to 190 degrees Fahrenheit and add pellets of hops. “The hops are the spice,” said Janusas, holding a handful of green pellets bursting with a floral aroma. After the hot, sugary liquid absorbs some flavor, the team brings the temperature down to 65 degrees Fahrenheit and infuses the mixture with oxygen to help yeast fermentation. Fermentation for a floral, doubleIPA brew like the Wild Onion’s “Hop Slayer” can take three weeks. Wild Onion Brewing Co. sends its

Bourbon barrels are sent to Wild Onion Brewing Co. from a distillery in Lawrenceburg, Ind. “They come with 10-20 ounces of residual bourbon in each barrel,” said brewer Pete Janusas. “We fill them with our beer to pull a smoky oak flavor.” leftover grain to a local farmer who uses it for mulch, fertilizer and animal feed. “This way, there isn’t a lot of waste,” Janusas said. “The grain is being ‘used’ in every sense of the word.” In the corner of the basement brewery at the Onion Pub are stacks of bourbon barrels that have been sent from a bourbon distillery in Lawrenceburg, Ind. They are used to make Wild Onion Brewing Co.’s “Drago Stout,” and are filled with beer to blend with residual bourbon over an eighth-month period. Janusas said the beer is named after the opponent of Rocky in the “Rocky IV” movie. “We needed a big, bad name for a big, bad beer,” he said. This stout pulls a smoky oak flavor out of the bourbon barrels. The Wild Onion team brews 20 beers throughout the year, canning only six of them. Most of their beers are kegged. The Kainz brothers are

McHENRY – Jim Verseman of Cary was the winner of the first Chevrolet Corvette sold by the Gary Lang Auto Group. Verseman won the car in a drawing held Saturday at the dealership, 1107 S. Route 31, McHenry, as part of Gary Lang’s 30th anniversary celebration. “We wanted to do something special for our 30th anniversary,” said Gary Lang, president of the Gary Lang Auto Group. “This was the first Corvette we sold in 1983 and I bought it back from a collector. It only had 125 miles on it. The car was a 1984 Chevy Corvette, as there was no 1983 model year for Corvettes.” Lang said there were more than 1,000 entries for the drawing. Thirty Schaumburg baseball ticket packages and 60 Gary Lang goodie bags were given away as consolation prizes. “I’ve never won anything like this before,” Verseman said.

DEERFIELD – Walgreens has introduced its Healthcare Clinic at more than 370 instore retail clinics, replacing the former Take Care Clinic name that has stood since the brand’s inception in 2004.

looking into expanding the brewery and buying a bottling line in the near future. “Customers want to buy more beer,” John Kainz said. “We sell cans and growlers (half-gallon jugs) at the pub, but we want to put an addition onto our current building since there’s plenty of room for growth.” Additionally, the brothers will harvest their three-acre hop farm this August for their seasonal “Harvest Ale.” “January through March is slow in beer business, but the warm weather months and fall get busy,” John Kainz said. “We will already be brewing our pumpkin ale next week.” Once the Kainz brothers find a brew recipe they are happy with, they continue to make the same brew over and over, adding only small changes. “It’s kind of like cooking,” John Kainz said. “If you want to, you can add a little more hops or tweak the recipe to make it sweeter. We go for drinkable, fresh, clean beer.” “That’s the fun thing about being in the beer business,” John Kainz said. “You can always try making something different.”

Wells Fargo exec: Small businesses need guidance By JOYCE M. ROSENBERG AP Business Writer NEW YORK – When Lisa Stevens speaks about her role as head of small business banking at Wells Fargo & Co., she focuses more on how she can help her customers rather than how she can grow the bank’s loan portfolio. Wells Fargo is already one of the country’s biggest lenders to small business. Over the past 10 years, it has made more Small Business Administration-backed loans than any other bank, with a total of $8.5 billion. But Stevens is aware that her customers also include those who can’t qualify for a loan. “It’s about getting a plan and helping people to set up and establish goals and move forward,” says Stevens, who has led Wells Fargo’s small business banking operations for two years. Stevens meets with small business owners several times a week, and finds that many are in need of guidance. “They don’t know what they don’t know, and they don’t know what’s available to help them,” she says. Wells Fargo is working to expand its services to business owners, including finding more ways for them to do their banking via mobile devices. Stevens writes a blog aimed, in part, at women business owners. And Wells Fargo continues to promote its lending programs, particularly to women-owned companies. Stevens, who volunteers with groups including the National Boys & Girls Club of America, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools, says she learned when she was growing up that it’s important to help others. She says that contributes to her focus on helping small businesses, or as she puts in, making a difference with the bank’s customers. Stevens recently spoke with The Associated Press about her job and small businesses. Here are excerpts, edited for brevity and clarity: Q. What’s your take on the state of small businesses and their recovery from the recession? A. It’s been very broad, with positive trends and we’ve seen it regionally and across major industries. In regions like California and Florida and Arizona and the industries that were significantly impacted by the recession, we’ve seen the most improvement. We saw a really good increase in loans. For the first half, we saw year-over-year a 25 percent increase in our small business lending. We know that over 20 percent of small businesses are in industries that are directly impacted by what happens in the overall real estate market. Construction, interior design, architectural services, landscaping, the list goes on. But we think there would also be a much larger impact on all small businesses from an improvement in the real estate mar-

ket. Consumer spending is helped by the recovery in home prices. So theoretically, we would expect to see a significant improvement in overall small business financial health just from the improving real estate market. We also think there’s a lag effect from business owners being cautious and holding off on hiring until they see a tangible change in demand for their products and services. We think that’s going to catch up as they see what’s happening with the real estate market. Q. Small business owners are a changing demographic. Younger entrepreneurs are much more savvy about technology and social media than older ones. How do you keep your bankers current so your 50-year-old banker understands the way a 30-year-old owner works? A. We keep our bankers current by having them keep us current. We’ve got an array of team members working for us, including a very large population of millennials (people age 18 to 29). We’ve got to be making sure that we’re soliciting their feedback on how we connect and spend time with customers, and make sure we’re giving them the things they need. We just rolled out mobile phone receipts for ATMs. That may not be as important to me, but to someone in their 20s, having something to access using their mobile device is really important. When we rolled out the business needs section of our website a year ago, we spent a lot of time taking our team members of every generation through it, and asking, what are we missing? What do we need to make sure we’re paying attention to? And making sure we had a digital aspect to it. When you look at the senior executives in most financial institutions, they’re typically all at least in their 40s if not older. We need to talk to that new generation that’s just starting to work in our industry and understand again how we communicate with millennials and understand what’s different about them. Is it important for them to be able to follow a Twitter feed or look at a Facebook page? Or have easy access to the Wells Fargo blog so you can click on something and get information at your fingertips? The one thing that I’m positive of is, even if you want to do everything from a digital perspective, at some point in your small business career, you’re going to need an advocate, someone to sit down and talk about you financial plan and you’re going to need that relationship. I think that’s one thing we’re teaching small business millennial customers. You want to build a relationship. You want someone who can give you that guidance. My analogy is, it would be great if you never had to go see your doctor, and he could prescribe everything over the phone or by email or text, but the reality is every once in a while, the doctor has to see you and talk with you and examine you. I think that’s the same with banking.

NEW YORK – Just over half of the companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index have reported earnings for the second quarter, and some are faring better than others. Here are some of the things we’ve learned so far. Banks and other financial companies have been the standouts. The materials sector, which includes miners and chemical companies, have fared the worst. Earnings are also contracting in the technology industry. Some older tech companies are reporting lower profits as they struggle to adapt while consumers embrace smartphones and other mobile devices. Overall, earnings growth is projected to slow for a third straight quarter. Analysts forecast that companies in the S&P500 will report earnings growth of 4.5 percent for the April-to-June period, according to S&P Capital IQ. That’s a drop from 5.2 percent in the first three months of the year. It’s not all bad news. Earnings at U.S. companies are expected to grow faster in the second half of the year as the economy strengthens. Rising consumer confidence, boosted by climbing home prices and an improving job market, should combine to drive the economy to stronger growth, helping companies earn more. The economy should also benefit after the impact starts to fade from government spending cuts and higher social security taxes put in place at the beginning of the year. By the fourth quarter of this year, company profits are expected to leap 11.2 percent from the same period a year earlier. That would be the fastest pace since the third quarter of 2011. For now, investors have to be content with modest growth.

BANKS: GETTING BETTER U.S. banks reported surging profits after setting aside less money for bad loans. Major banks including Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase also profited from a boom in investment banking, as recovering financial markets resulted in big increases in fees for underwriting stock and bond offerings. Rising interest rates also helped banks earn more from lending money. The outlook for banks isn’t as encouraging, however. There are signs that the boom in mortgage refinancing is starting to peter out. On the positive side, there weren’t any nasty surprises of the kind banks have regularly handed investors in the years following the financial crisis. There was no mention of massive trading losses like JPMorgan’s $6 billion “London whale” debacle last year, or settlements for mortgagerelated lawsuits. Banks are forecast to post earnings growth of 24 percent in the second quarter, the best of any industry group in the S&P 500. Of the 39 financial

companies that have posted earnings, 74 percent have beaten analysts’ expectations for earnings. That’s better than the 66 percent average for S&P 500 companies overall. In fact, if you strip out banks, overall earnings are forecast to rise only 0.5 percent, according to S&P Capital IQ. “I suspect that over the next few quarters, to the extent that interest rates continue to rise, you may well continue to see financials outperform the broader market,” said Joseph Tanious, a global market strategist at JPMorgan Funds. The earnings have helped financial companies post the second-best returns in the S&P 500 this month. They’re up 6.1 percent in July, compared with a 5.3 percent gain for the broader index. Financial stocks have gained 25.7 percent this year.

‘OLD’ TECH STRUGGLES Technology companies were meant be among the biggest beneficiaries of an improving economy. It hasn’t played out that way. Some of the biggest names in the sector are struggling to adapt to new technologies and how consumers use them. Microsoft fell 11.4 percent July 19, the most in more than four years, after the company wrote off nearly $1 billion from its new Surface tablet business and said that a poor reception for its Windows 8 operating system crimped revenue. Intel, which is wedded to the PC market even as consumers switch to mobile devices, slumped after the company predicted flat sales. Even Google faltered. Its results suggest that the company is having trouble navigating the transition from traditional desktop and laptop computers to smartphones and tablets. Earnings are expected to contract 5 percent for tech companies in the second quarter. “Technology companies are where we’ve seen some of the biggest disappointments in terms of earnings,” said Kate Warne, an investment strategist at Edward Jones. “The older technology companies have been a bit slow to move to newer areas.”

GLIMMER OF LIFE IN EUROPE? The slump in Europe may not be over, but there are some signs of hope, judging from comments made by executives at industrial companies. That’s good because many U.S. companies rely heavily on sales to Europe. Deutsche Bank’s chief U.S. equity strategist, David Bianco, estimates that 17 percent of the profits at S&P 500 companies come from the region. General Electric’s CEO, Jeff Immelt, told analysts on a conference call that Europe has stabilized. GE’s orders increased 2 percent in the period, after falling 17 percent in the first three months of the year.

Lea Michele opens up THINGS

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

Tuesday, July 30, 2013 • PlanitNorthwest.com/buzz

Lea Michele is breaking her silence online after her “Glee” co-star and real-life boyfriend Cory Monteith died of an overdose earlier this month. The actress posted a photo of her and Monteith on Twitter Monday, along with a message thanking her followers for “helping me through this time with your enormous love & support.” “Cory will forever be in my heart,” Michele wrote.

Moonves says the offer was then

Arnett talks Bluths, ‘The Millers’ Will Arnett hopes the mixed reviews of season 4 of “Arrested Development” will mellow out over time. Speaking Monday at the annual Television Critics Association summer press tour, Arnett said he’s “incredibly proud” of the show’s recent new episodes and the cast is in discussions with Netflix to do more. “I think we had to go dark [in tone] ... audiences are so savvy now and you have to do something that’s different and make it interesting,” the 43-yearold actor said. There was much fanfare over the 15-episode fourth season of “Arrested Development,” the award-winning show about the dysfunctional Bluth family that was posted to Netflix in May. But not all fans were impressed with the format and story lines. Arnett says working with Jason Bateman, who was often the “straight man” of “Arrested Development,” taught him how to play it straight and reactionary in his upcoming CBS comedy, “The Millers,” co-starring Beau Bridges, Margo Martindale and Jayma Mays. “Jason has unbelievable timing,” Arnett said. “He’s personally one of the funniest people I’ve ever known. I’ve learned so much from him. As crazy as Gob [Bluth] was doing something, it only worked [playing off Bateman]. ... It was a tango, and Jason was the woman and I was the man,” he joked. On “The Millers,” Arnett is a newly divorced guy whose parents, played by Martindale and Bridges, are caught up in a bitter separation. The sitcom is shot in a multicamera format and taped in front of a live audience. “It [seems] like something that is like doing a play, it is like an event,” he said.

The reality TV stars submitted fraudulent mortgage and other loan applications from 2001 through 2008, a year before their show debuted on Bravo, making phony claims about their employment status and salaries, the indictment said.

Teresa Giudice, 41, and her husband Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice, 43, of Montville Township, were charged in a 39-count indictment with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.

Actress Charlize Theron has pledged her support in the campaign against AIDS during a meeting with South African President Jacob Zuma. Theron, an ambassador for the United Nations program on AIDS, met Zuma in Pretoria on Monday to discuss the fight against AIDS in South Africa and across the continent. The South Africa-born actress says the world has the ability to usher in “an AIDS-free generation.” She said the goal could become a reality with strong leadership like that displayed by Zuma.

Staying positive CL Bombers winless, hope to still make noise By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – Crystal Lake Bombers third baseman Marc Miguel thinks their biggest problem through Pool 2 play in the McHenry County Youth Sports Association 15U Summer International Championships was a lack of confidence. “We were playing good competition and we were a little intimidated,” said Miguel, who will be a sophomore at Marian Central. “We just all need to get some confidence.” The Bombers finished pool play at 0-5 and will start play in the Silver Bracket of the tournament Wednesday. There, like most of the local teams, the Bombers hope they can feel better about themselves. Only the Lake in the Hills Thunder, of the seven host teams, advanced to the Gold Bracket, going 2-3 in pool play. “I thought we battled well in some games,” said Bombers coach Mike Krueger, after their 12-2 loss to the Puerto Rico Apaches on Monday night. “We were a little overmatched in some games. I told them we’re capable of making a good run in the Silver Bracket.” Miguel was 2 for 3 and scored a

Sandford said Monday’s surgery, completed by Dr. Patty Hogan, lasted between 30 and 45 minutes and that Take Charge Indy responded well afterward and was able to put full weight on the leg. The horse, which was fitted with a soft cast, also started eating immediately after being returned to his stall, providing Sandford evidence that the colt was doing fine. “It’s unbelievable how classy this horse is,” Hogan said in a WinStar Farms release. “The surgery went very well.

Injuries create concern Injuries are a fact of life in the NFL and have ruined more than a few promising seasons, careers and teams. Players do all they can these days to avoid them, working out year-round, including in team-sponsored offseason programs specially designed to promote strength and power, and limit injuries. Still, they come. The injury bug arrived in Bourbonnais with the opening whistle of the Bears’ fourth day of practice and second day in pads. The seasonending ruptured Achilles tendon suffered by Turk McBride could reverberate throughout the Bears’ depth chart. We are told the calf strain suffered by left tackle Jermon Bushrod is minor, that he will be day-to-day. Even if the early diagnosis is correct, though, should Bushrod miss more than a few practices it could send shockwaves up and down an

Chuck Sandford knew some time ago that Take Charge Indy’s racing career was reaching the end of the line. But when the 4-year-old colt was forced to retire Monday after suffering a broken bone in his left foreleg during Sunday’s Monmouth Cup, Sandford – the Marengo resident who, along with his wife, Maribeth, owns the 2012 Kentucky Derby entrant – said seeing the end come so quickly is difficult to take. Take Charge Indy underwent successful surgery Monday morning to repair the condylar fracture that happened during Sunday’s $200,000 race with Indy leading and starting to pull away from the pack. That’s when jockey Gary Stevens said he heard a loud pop, forcing him to pull Take Charge Indy back. Stevens told Sandford after the race that Indy stopped running as soon as the injury occurred, and that “saved both of us.” Take Charge Indy appeared headed for his second win of the season after capturing the Alysheba Stakes in May. Indy was coming off a sixth-place finish at last month’s Stephen Foster Handicap. Stevens told Sandford after Sunday’s race that it wasn’t a matter of whether Indy would win, but by how much, before the injury. Sandford said Monday the decision to retire the colt was made Sunday once X-rays came back. “We had a tough weekend,” Sandford said in a phone in-

BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush offensive line that we continue to hear is “a work in progress.” Let’s look at the big picture on the defensive line first. As bad as I feel for McBride, he was not a lock to make this football team. The seven-year veteran is a career journeyman, and the Bears are his fourth NFL team, but defensive coordinator Mel Tucker and head coach Marc Trestman like what they had seen so far. Trestman said of the injury: “We’re real sad for Turk. He’s worked as hard or harder than anyone here this offseason, and we’re really disappointed.”

The Bug lands on Bears BOURBONNAIS – Henry Melton was in a lousy mood after practice Monday. For that matter, the Bears’ fifthyear defensive lineman was in a lousy mood during practice, too. You probably would feel the same way if you watched one of your favorite co-workers go down because of an injury. “I was pretty much thinking about it the whole practice,” Melton said. After touring various NFL training camps, The Injury Bug paid a visit to practice field No. 3 at Olivet Nazarene University. For an appetizer, he nibbled on the right calf of prized left tackle Jermon Bushrod. For the main course, he opened wide and took a menacing bite out veteran defensive lineman Turk McBride. Achilles tendon: ruptured. McBride’s season: finished. Mmmm, says The Bug. Burrrp, goes The Bug.

BEARS INSIDER Tom Musick Zzzzz, snores The Bug. If we have learned anything about The Bug, it’s that he will wake up soon enough. And he will be hungry again. It’s merely a question of where he will go for his next meal. Before filling his belly at Bears camp, The Bug feasted at sites across the lower 48. He bit Jeremy Maclin’s ACL. He chewed on Percy Harvin’s labrum. He devoured Dennis Pitta’s hip, leaving the Baltimore Ravens tight end out for the season. Somehow, the Bears managed to lay low while other teams dealt with big injuries.

GOLF: McHENRY WOMEN’S INVITATIONAL

McHenry Country Club stars on first day By PATRICK MASON

Leaderboard

pmason@shawmedia.com

Leaders Monday after the first round Monday of the 36-hole McHenry Women’s Invitational at McHenry Country Club, par 72: Championship flight – Ali Rogala 74, Laura Carson 75, Kelly Voigt 76 First flight – Pee Wee McCormick 77, Ashley Smith 79, Jackie Schwarz 82 Second flight – Sandy Honaker 85, Deanna Carstens 89, Sue Chang and Christine Malmgren 91 Third flight – Marian Bradshaw and Ann Marie Zasiebida 94, Ada Davison 95 Fourth flight – Carol Kidder 92, Nanci Piccony, Robin Natzke and Sally Coffelt 96 Fifth flight – Kathy Brennan 96, Joyce Wagenmaker 99, Betty Olson and Gail Merchant 102

McHENRY – Monday marked the first day of the 39th annual McHenry Women’s Invitational at McHenry Country Club, and the conditions couldn’t have been better. Each of the 124 participants – grouped into six flights based on handicap – were able to see what McHenry resident and McHenry Country Club member Kris Gilstrap saw when she first played the course seven or eight years ago. “I just fell in love with the course right away,” she said. “It’s absolutely beautiful, and you couldn’t have asked for a better day for a tournament like this.” When Gilstrap first played the course, she lived in Long Grove but

had been contemplating a move for some time. After playing one round at McHenry Country Club, she and her family began looking for homes in McHenry in order to be able to play and become a member at the course at the resident price level. Gilstrap has been playing in the MWI ever since and couldn’t be happier with the turnout and quality of play. She shot a 90 during the first round, which left her 15th in the first flight. “This is a great tournament because there aren’t a lot of tournaments that allow for older women to play in,” she said. “This gets people over 50 years old to come out and enjoy themselves and meet others that still play the game.” Despite the cool, golf-conducive weather with little to no wind, no one broke par during the first round.

When Char McLear, a McHenry resident and co-chairwoman at the club playing in the championship flight, turned in her scorecard after a 7-over-par 79, she thought she had no chance at the title. But her spirits picked up when she glanced at the leaderboard. Her 79 tied her for seventh in the top flight and placed her in the top three groups to tee off in the final round Tuesday. “This is always one of the best times of summer with this tournament,” McLear said. “The people are great, and everyone seems to have a smile on their face, including me now that I got to look at the scores.” Laura Carson, a Lake Forest resident, had the early lead after shooting a 75 in the championship flight but was unseated as the leader

heading into Day 2 when Ali Rogala turned in a 74. Carson makes sure to take the trip from Lake Forest each year to play in the tournament, lured by the quality of the course, level of competition and the “bang for your buck.” Golfers are entitled to use of the practice facilities, a breakfast before rounds and a dinner afterward along with various prizes for low putts, closest to the pin and longest drive. She is also competitive, noting that she has won the event in the past while placed in the top three a few times. “I knew that I was going to have a good day after the first three holes,” Carson said. “It’s really tough here, especially holes two and three, and I birdied the first hole and ended the first three 1-under par, so I was pretty happy.”

Wiebe defeats Langer in Senior British playoff

Hoglund heading to Baylor

SOUTHPORT, England – Bernhard Langer gave Mark Wiebe one too many chances at the Senior British Open. Wiebe took advantage of Langer’s failure to close out the tournament, beating the German on the fifth playoff hole Monday at Royal Birkdale for his first senior major title. The American used a superb approach shot from the rough to set up a two-putt par, while Langer failed to get up and down, seeing his par putt stay out. Langer led by two shots going into the final hole of regulation Sunday, only to settle for a double bogey when he struggled to get out of a bunker. The playoff was then halted after two holes because of darkness and resumed Monday, with Langer immediately missing another chance to win when his 12-foot putt wouldn’t drop.

Junior gives committment on Monday By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com Amanda Hoglund had known for some time where she wanted to play her college soccer. The Richmond-Burton junior made it official Monday when she committed to NCAA Division I Baylor University in Waco, Texas. Hoglund, a two-time Northwest Herald All-Area firstteam selection, visited Baylor twice and Bears coaches also saw her play twice. Amanda “I loved it Hoglund there,” Hoglund said. “The coaching staff was above and beyond with everything. The head coach (Marci Jobson) is awesome, and her husband (Paul Jobson) is her assistant. Their coaching style is exactly what I wanted.” Hoglund scored 48 goals and 16 assists for the Rockets as a freshman, helping the team finish third in the IHSA Class A state tournament. She again led R-B in scoring as a sophomore. NCAA rules forbid coaches from initiating contact with athletes of Hoglund’s grade in school, but she emailed Baylor’s coaches in February, who then corresponded with her club coaches from Schaumburg-based Sockers FC. Now, Hoglund is relieved to have her college decision made so early. “I saw what the Baylor girls are like,” she said. “They’re strong, tough and good with their feet. I have to get even better to play with those girls.”

A Connecticut State Police dive team member searches Pine Lake on Monday in Bristol, Conn., the hometown of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez, who is charged with murder.

NFL NOTES

Lake in Hernandez’s hometown searched The ASSOCIATED PRESS BRISTOL, Conn. – Connecticut and Massachusetts authorities Monday searched in and around a lake in the hometown of Aaron Hernandez, the former New England Patriots player who is charged with murder. Connecticut police declined to comment on the nature of Monday’s search at Pine Lake in Bristol and referred calls to Massachusetts prosecutors. Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for the Bristol County district attorney, would not comment. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old Boston semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 about a mile from Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough, Mass. The ex-player’s attorneys have called the case against him circumstantial. Authorities believe Lloyd

was killed with a .45-caliber Glock, which hasn’t been recovered. Police divers were in Pine Lake on Monday, and other officers could be seen combing the water’s edge. This month, investigators executed several search warrants in Bristol at locations linked to Hernandez and his associates Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, whom authorities say were with Hernandez when Lloyd was killed. They found a vehicle at the home of Hernandez’s uncle that was wanted in a 2012 double killing in Boston. It had been rented in Hernandez’s name The warrants also were used to search an apartment linked to Ortiz and a rental car police say was used by Wallace and Ortiz to return to Connecticut after Lloyd’s shooting. Authorities have not said who fired the shots that killed

Lloyd, but documents filed in Florida paint the former Patriot as the triggerman. According to the records, Ortiz told police that Wallace said Hernandez fired the shots.

The Pro Bowl fullback signed a two-year contract Monday after being released by the Ravens in June. Leach paved the way for running back Ray Rice to gain 1,143 yards last season. Leach ran nine times for 32 yards during the regular season and scored a touchdown against Indianapolis in Baltimore’s first postseason game. But he declined to renegotiate his contract during the offseason and was released by Baltimore in June. At the time, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome left open the possibility that Leach could return, saying, “There

could be an opportunity for him to return to the Ravens once he explores the freeagent market.” Coach John Harbaugh said Monday, “We’ve been hopeful this would happen all along.”

Bills WR Smith restructures deal: At Pittsford, N.Y., a person familiar with the decision says Buffalo Bills receiver Brad Smith has restructured the final two years of his contract to have a better shot at making the roster. The person said Monday the new deal provides the Bills additional salary-cap space and also better reflects Smith’s production over his first two seasons in Buffalo. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the move, and Smith did not reveal the reason behind it. The National Football Post first reported Smith had restructured his contract Sunday.

Tigers acquire reliever Veras from Astros DETROIT – The Detroit Tigers added some help for their shaky bullpen Monday, acquiring reliever Jose Veras from the Houston Astros for minor league outfielder Danry Vasquez and a player to be named. Veras is 0-4 with a 2.93 ERA and 19 saves this season, and the 32-year-old right-hander has struck out 44 in 43 innings with only 14 walks.

Braves acquire lefty Downs from Angels ATLANTA – The Atlanta Braves have added a needed left-hander to their bullpen by acquiring Scott Downs from the Los Angeles Angels for minor league righty Cory Rasmus. The Braves have lost left-handed relievers Jonny Venters and Eric O’Flaherty to season-ending elbow injuries. The 37-yearold Downs joins Luis Avilan as lefties in Atlanta’s bullpen. Downs was 2-3 with a 1.84 ERA in 43 games with the Angels. He is 36-35 with a 3.47 ERA in 12 seasons. – Wire reports

Son of A.P. Indy earned $5.8M deal reached with retired president more than $1 million OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY

By ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Former Ohio State University president Gordon Gee, who retired under a cloud after remarks jabbing Roman Catholics and Southeastern Conference schools, will receive a $5.8 million package over the next five years, along with an office, a secretary and a premium parking pass, the university said Monday. The contract with Gee includes a one-time payment of $1.5 million, an annual salary of $410,000 and a $300,000 annual grant for research on 21st-century education policy. It also retains him as a full professor in the universi-

ty’s College of Law, pays him health insurance and covers moving and storage expenses. The deal also will cover the cost of tax preparation and penalties Gee incurred as a result of corrections the university made in reporting his income for 2009, Gordon Gee 2010 and 2011. The agreement, signed by Gee on Monday, didn’t explain the corrections. University spokeswoman Gayle Saunders said the corrections involved miscalculations on Gee’s W2 form dealing with minimal amounts of money.

Gee, 69, retired July 1, shortly after The Associated Press first reported remarks he made to the university’s Athletic Council in December. Those comments included digs at Notre Dame, the Big Ten, the University of Wisconsin athletic director and the University of Arkansas football coach. Gee apologized for the remarks after a March 11 letter from university trustees requiring such apologies and warning that future misstatements could lead to his firing. “It was my great calling to have led Ohio State for fourteen years, and I am proud to be able to continue my work for Ohio and Ohio State,” Gee said in a statement released

by the university Monday. Gee, who was Ohio State president from 1990 to 1997 and from 2007 until he retired, declined an AP request for additional comment Monday. He was one of the country’s highest-paid college presidents, with total compensation of about $2 million a year. The university previously had confirmed it was spending $190,000 on an office suite in its Page Hall for Gee as part of his new role. In the audiotaped remarks to the Athletic Council, Gee criticized Notre Dame, saying the university was never invited to join the Big Ten because the university’s religious leaders are not “good partners.”

BEARS NOTES

Defense stays ahead of offense By KEVIN FISHBAIN kfishbain@shawmedia.com

Lathan Goumas – lgoumas@shawmedia.com

Cornerback Charles Tillman signals no catch during a drill on the first day of Bears training camp Friday in Bourbonnais. Tillman had 16 passes defensed and three interceptions last season.

BEARS TRAINING CAMP PREVIEW: DEFENSIVE BACKS

Productive group returns By KEVIN FISHBAIN kfishbain@shawmedia.com The Bears’ secondary is coming off a record-setting 2012 season, due in large part to the ball-hawking and ball-ripping skills of cornerbacks Tim Jennings and Charles Tillman. Tillman, 32, had one of the most productive defensive seasons in the league last year. He started every game for the third season in a row and racked up 86 tackles, three interceptions, 16 passes defensed, 10 forced fumbles and three touchdowns. At 6-foot-2, 198 pounds, Tillman has the size and physicality to match up with the game’s best receivers. The Pro Bowler made a name for himself by ripping the ball out of opponent’s hands with ease. Jennings broke out last season, leading the league with nine interceptions. He had 21 passes defensed and one touchdown. He’s much smaller than Tillman, but showed a nose for the ball and has good closing speed. Veteran Kelvin Hayden re-signed in March on a oneyear deal and will likely be the team’s nickelback, as D.J. Moore moved on to Carolina. Competing to make the roster with their special-teams skills will be Sherrick McManis, Zack Bowman and Isaiah Frey, who was a seventh-round pick in 2012. At safety, Major Wright and Chris Conte brought stability to the position, combining to start every game but one last season.

Editor’s note This the fifth in a series of Bears positional breakdowns from the staff of HubArkush.com. Wright was third on the team in tackles and also had four interceptions. He has good instincts and is physical playing the run. Conte had nine passes defensed last season, but could show a better knack for making big plays. Former Buffalo Grove High School star Tom Zbikowski joined the team this offseason and will be in a stiff competition with Anthony Walters, Craig Steltz and Brandon Hardin to be the top reserve safety. Hardin missed his entire rookie season with a neck injury, but has good size, speed and intangibles. Tom Nelson and Cyhl Quarles round out the safety depth chart. Position battles: Just like the defensive line, the four starters are set in stone for the Bears’ secondary, but the cornerback and safety positions are deep, which will provide battles between solid players to make the roster. At corner, special-teams abilities will help McManis and Bowman stand out, and Frey will have to work hard in camp to get noticed ahead of them. Safety has the most intriguing battle with several players who have experience, plus Hardin coming off his second serious injury in the past two years. How the players fare on

kick coverage could also help determine the backup safeties to make the final roster. Contract situations: No position has more at stake from a contract perspective than the secondary, where three starters are entering the final years of their respective deals. Tillman is playing at an extremely high level in the final year of his second contract, something few NFL players can achieve. He’ll make $7.95 million in base salary this season, and has said he would prefer to finish his career where it began, in Chicago. His corner mate, Jennings, is set to earn $4.25 million in 2013. Jennings, who turns 30 in December, could cash in after another big season, though cornerbacks hardly broke the bank this past March. Wright is entering the final year of his rookie contract and will be looking to earn a longterm deal in his third season as a starter.

What to watch in camp: There is much less mystery surrounding the defense, especially the secondary, than we will see on offense. The biggest question for the corners will be whether Tillman and Jennings can live up to last year’s ridiculous numbers, and how that will affect their futures with the Bears. At safety, the hope is for improvement from Wright and Conte, but the safety worth watching in camp is Hardin. A college corner, Hardin has an intriguing skill set, but needs to stay healthy and has plenty of competition on the loaded safety depth chart.

When the New York Giants won the Super Bowl two years ago, they credited a great deal of their success to their NASCAR package of three, four or even five defensive ends on the field at one time. If you’ve been watching closely in Bourbonnais, you’ve seen that in almost every nickel or obvious pass defense scheme, the Bears have Julius Peppers, Corey Wootton and Shea McClellin on the field with Henry Melton. Wootton is lining up at right defensive tackle to make sure the Bears have their four best pass

rushers in the game, regardless of position.

cial teams has him in a commanding position to win a roster spot.

It’s awfully early to start deciding position battles but I’m hard-pressed to see how Joe Anderson isn’t the fourth best receiver on the team. The fact that Anderson is also very good on spe-

I’ve said it before and been burned every time but still, we appear to be seeing a maturing and more focused Jay Cutler. Let’s see if this time it proves to be the real deal.

Bears need Bushrod back quickly • ARKUSH Continued from page C1 The problem the injury creates on the depth chart is Bears brass hoped McBride would claim the fourth defensive end spot and that Sedrick Ellis would claim the third or fourth defensive tackle spot. That would have garnered each at least a little playing time, and also made each the next man up in the event of an injury to a starter. With the unexpected retirement of Ellis on the first day of camp and the loss of McBride, the Bears are now dangerously thin at both spots. There are two issues with the Bushrod injury. The first is that calf muscles are extremely finicky and slow to heal. Even a lesser tweak can stretch into a week or two if you’re not careful. Perhaps more importantly, it was actually Bushrod

who just told me Saturday: “When you put in a complex offense like we have, it’s going to take time. It’ll be at least the last preseason game before we’re ready.” The lesser of two concerns here is that Bushrod has to be the leader and best player on that line, and there is no unit on a football team that requires more cohesiveness, timing and communication than the O-line. Bushrod himself will be fine if he’s back soon, but just three, four or more missed days of practice could push the arrival of the group as ready for prime time back into the early part of the regular season or later. The scarier proposition is that this becomes one of those calf injuries that stretches into a couple of weeks or more. I’m fine with Jonathan Scott filing in at Bushrod’s spot, but that leaves no competition at right tackle for J’Marcus

Webb, whose early reviews at camp have been shaky at best. Should Bushrod’s return be delayed, the Bears then have to strongly consider moving either Eben Britton, James Brown or Kyle Long back to tackle both to hedge their bet on Webb and create a little depth. Every second of distraction with this group hurts. There are six players on this team the Bears can absolutely not afford to have miss significant time if they’re going to be a contender. Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall, Julius Peppers, Lance Briggs and “Peanut” Tillman are the first five. Other than Cutler, Bushrod is more important than any of them right now. • Hub Arkush covers the Bears for Shaw Media and HubArkush.com. Write to him at harkush@shawmedia. com.

BOURBONNAIS – All the attention on the injuries Monday took away from another strong defensive performance at Bears training camp. The offense took the early edge in a two-minute drill, but then the defense – especially the secondary – showed off its propensity for getting after the football. The defensive backs scored several pass breakups throughout practice, led by Charles Tillman. Tillman forced three incomplete passes by getting his hands on the ball. The aggressive corner put on a clinic when it comes to getting in the passing lane. “[Tillman]’s a very skilled athlete, he’s very competitive, he’s super smart, he really knows what he’s doing out there,” defensive coordinator Mel Tucker said. “He’s very, very consistent. What you see is what you get.” Tillman’s ball skills rubbed

off on his teammates. Jay Cutler heaved a pass down the sideline for a wide-open Earl Bennett before Chris Conte came diving in to break it up. A couple of plays later, Major Wright dived to knock down a pass intended for Martellus Bennett. Zack Bowman and Isaiah Frey also had passes defensed. Even in the run game, the DBs got to the ball, with Kelvin Hayden getting a big roar from the crowd when he ripped the ball away from Matt Forte. “The guys feed on takeaways,” Tucker said. New role: Things have changed for Devin Hester, who is no longer working with the offense and putting his sole focus into returning kicks. Special teams coach Joe DeCamillis said Hester is taking the new role in stride. “His attitude has been great. He’s been great from the start. We talked early on,” he told reporters. “Again, it’s only three or four days of camp. We’ve got a lot of work

to do but really like where his mental point is at.” Hester also has worked at times with the unit blocking kicks, coming in off the edge. “Yeah, we like a lot of things he can do with speed, but we’ll just have to wait and see how that works out,” DeCamillis said. Hot start: Cutler’s first pass of the three opening practices went like this: interception, interception, incomplete pass. On Monday, he opened with a screen pass to Matt Forte for big yards. On the next play, Cutler found wide receiver Joe Anderson, who made a touchdown grab between Tim Jennings and Wright. Dump-offs in style: Running backs figure to be integral to the passing game, which should play right in to Forte’s skill set. On Monday, several offensive plays resulted in a swing pass to a running back. Whether it was a checkdown or by design, the quarterbacks are using that outlet to gain yards.

Tucker: ‘Injuries are a part of the game’ • MUSICK Continued from page C1 When camp opened last week at ONU, the storylines were fresh, the temperature was perfect and the team was healthy. We all knew that wouldn’t last forever. Bears defensive coordinator Mel Tucker knew as well as anyone. Tucker is in his 16th season of coaching. He played football, too, as a defensive back at Wisconsin. I asked Tucker whether he ever had a season without The Injury Bug playing a role. In a word: No. “It’s always something,” Tucker said. “They say football is the great game of life. “It’s like our everyday lives. There’s always some-

thing. Adversity. Overcoming adversity. Things like that. That’s what makes it such a great game. “But injuries are a part of the game.” Melton and his teammates know this, of course, but that doesn’t make it any easier when a colleague steps awkwardly, winces, and crumbles to the turf. You can eat all of the vegetables in the world, you can run all of the trails in the world, you can lift all of the weights in the world, but nothing can eliminate the risk of injury. Throughout the offseason and the start of training camp, the Bears had been lucky. But injuries are inevitable. They’re as much of a part of football as tight spirals and crunching hits and booming

punts and screaming fans. “Something’s going to happen,” Melton said. “That’s just how the game is. “It’s physical. It’s a grind. And sometimes your body just can’t take it.” On Monday, McBride’s body couldn’t take it. He arrived at the field ready to work. He was carted off the field unable to walk. “We said a prayer for him after it happened,” Melton said. “And then you’ve got to look to the next guy to step up.” Somewhere, The Bug is licking his lips. • Northwest Herald sports columnist Tom Musick can be reached at tmusick@shawmedia.com and on Twitter @ tcmusick.

WHITE SOX

AMERICAN LEAGUE

Sox reliever Crain dealt to Tampa Bay By JIMMY GOLEN The Associated Press BOSTON – The Tampa Bay Rays acquired injured reliever Jesse Crain from the White Sox on Monday in an attempt to bolster their bullpen for the stretch run in the tough AL East. The Sox will receive players to be named or cash for Crain, a 32-year-old right-hander who is 2-3 with a 1.15 ERA Jesse Crain in 38 appearances. He was placed on the disabled list July 3 with a right shoulder strain. “Jesse has been one of the top relievers in the American League, not only this season but also throughout his entire tenure with the White Sox,” Sox general manager Rick Hahn said. “We cannot say enough about what Jesse has meant to our bullpen, and the positive impact he’s had on our young relievers. We certainly think he has the ability to influence this year’s pennant race very positively for the Rays.” The deal was announced before the Rays faced the division-leading Red Sox in Boston on Monday night. Tampa Bay began the day one-half game behind Boston in the AL East. Crain was expected to fly straight to Tampa Bay, where the Rays open a two-game series against the Arizona

Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. Hahn said Crain’s injury affected the market for him. The team considered waiting until he is healthy, which could be in a few weeks, and trying to get him through waivers. “The very, very high likelihood would be that he would be claimed off waivers,” Hahn said. “So that obviously was not a very appealing alternative when compared with negotiating a deal now prior to the deadline, even with the complexities involved in trying to figure out what’s fair compensation for a guy currently on the DL. If he had been healthy for the month of July and healthy right now, it probably would have been a very different dynamic.” The Sox, who are in last place in the AL Central, have lost 10 of 13 after Monday night’s 3-2 loss to the Indians. “Obviously, we haven’t played up to expectations here,” Crain told reporters in Cleveland. “So to get a chance to get healthy and pitch for a team that’s [fighting for first place], there’s nothing more I could ask for.” Crain made the All-Star team for the first time this year but did not pitch because he was injured. He said Monday he wasn’t surprised he was traded, but he is focused on trying to get healthy and help his new club. “I had an idea, but you don’t want to go all-in until you know for sure,” he said. “Now that it is, I’m excited.”

INDIANS 3, WHITE SOX 2

Giambi’s HR in 9th sends Sox to new low By TOM WITHERS The Associated Press CLEVELAND – The White Sox have fallen to their lowest point in six years. Unfortunately, it may not be the bottom. Jason Giambi’s pinch-hit homer leading off the ninth inning against Ramon Troncoso lifted the Cleveland Indians to a 3-2 win Monday night over the Sox, who dropped their fourth straight and lost for the 10th time in 13 games. Next A season spi raling downward Sox at Clevereached a new lev- land, 6:05 p.m. el as the Sox fell 23 Tuesday, WCIU, games below .500 for AM-670 the first time since 2007. On top of the losing, the Sox are undergoing change. Before the game, they traded reliever Jesse Crain to Tampa for future considerations, and there’s a strong chance starter Jake Peavy could be dealt before Wednesday’s deadline. Peavy is scheduled to start Tuesday night. “It’s hard to watch,” starter John Danks said of the team’s decision to dismantle. “Jesse and I have become good buddies. Jake and I have a real good relationship. I’d love to keep him, but I understand the business. We’ll see what happens. I don’t follow it real close. I’d love to keep him here and make a run at it, but we don’t really know what’s going to happen, though.”

Batting for Mark Reynolds, Giambi belted a 1-1 pitch from Troncoso (1-3) into the bushes beyond the fence. It was the 436th career homer and ninth career walk-off shot for the popular 42-year-old slugger, who had a bucket of ice water dumped over his head by teammates. “I might catch pneumonia,” he joked. “I’m a little old to be dunked with water. I love it. I’ve been preaching all year one guy is not more important than another, and it’s going to take all 25 of us, even more than that, to win ballgames and we’ve done it all year. It’s just exciting to be a part of it.” According to STATS, Giambi is the oldest player in major league history to hit a walk-off homer, surpassing Hank Aaron, who was 42 days younger than Giambi when he did it in 1976. “He’s been doing that for a while,” Sox manager Robin Ventura said. “He’s over there for a reason.” The sinking Sox are 182 games out of first. The nonwaiver trading deadline adds another layer of misery. “You’ve got to be able to get through it,” Ventura said. “It will be better in a couple of days because it will be over. It’s stuff you have to deal with every year. It’s different this year because they’re not in the whowe’re-going-to-get stage.” The Sox had a chance to take lead in the ninth when Dayan Viciedo tripled with two outs off Chris Perez (3-1). However, he didn’t score when left fielder Michael Brantley made a sensational, running catch of Gordon Beckham’s liner for the third out.

Deeper Cubs keep playing with pride INSIDE THE CUBS Meghan Montemurro CHICAGO – The Cubs have become adept at plugging and replacing the holes left open by players being traded away the past two years. The options haven’t always been bountiful as the minor league system is steadily gaining depth and impact players. But the 2013 version of the sell-off Cubs, which has witnessed the departure of mainstays Matt Garza and Alfonso Soriano, isn’t exactly the same as the 2012 product that also saw their best talent get traded away. “I think we have a lot of big-league ready guys still on our team where last year we pieced it together just to put a team out there,” Monday’s starter Jeff Samardzija said. “There’s a lot of guys who have a lot on the line which is exciting and you see how we play every day because of that.” Even with their 5-0 loss Monday against the Brewers, the Cubs (48-56) aren’t looking to coast through the final two months of the season or using any trades as an excuse to mail in their last 58 games. They have their sights set on trying to finish .500. While that may seem far-fetched considering they sit eight games below .500 with plenty of games remaining against National League Central opponents in one of baseball’s toughest divisions, it’s a stark contrast to the grind-it-out mentally last year. “It’s a goal that you want to have, but it’s [also] not a goal that we want to have with this organization because I think those kind of things hold things back too,” manager Dale Sveum said. “ ‘Oh, as long as we get to .500, yippee,’ but you’re still going home like everybody else who’s not in the playoffs.” Certainly the Cubs have a ways to go to turn into a perennial playoff contender. But a fresh vibe in the clubhouse, in part credited to younger players such as outfielder Junior Lake and pitcher Chris Rusin taking on bigger roles, is helping the Cubs move past the void left by their former teammates, particularly Soriano. “We’ve got a lot of young talent,” closer Kevin Gregg said. “You see that in Junior Lake. We’re just putting pieces together. We have a lot of talented pieces now; it’s just how we can put them together.” It helps that the Cubs’ rotation has remained mostly intact. Carlos Villanueva slipped back into the rotation after getting booted when Garza re-

BREWERS 5, CUBS 0 Tipping point: Right-hander Jeff Samardzija did everything he could to put the Cubs in position to win, but the offense couldn’t come through against the Brewers. Milwaukee scored five runs off reliever Pedro Strop in the ninth to turn a scoreless ballgame into an easy win for the Brewers. On the mound: Samardzija became the third consecutive Cubs starter to throw seven innings of shutout ball. He surrendered only three hits and struck out seven for his most strikeouts since June 8 – a span of nine starts. Although he needed 109 pitches, Samardzija helped save the bullpen by working seven innings. He earned a no decision. At the plate: The Cubs had six hits in the shutout loss, including two from Anthony Rizzo, who also walked. Junior Lake, making his Wrigley Field debut, snapped an 0 for 14 stretch and finished 2 for 4 with a bunt single. Nate Schierholtz struggled in the cleanup spot, going 0 for 4 with three strikeouts and a weak grounder to first. Under the radar: In their past 55 games, the Cubs’ 30-25 record is fourth-best in the National League. Their .545 winning percentage trails the Dodgers, Cardinals and Pirates. turned from his spring training injury while Samardzija and Travis Wood have given a glimpse of a potentially potent 1-2 combination on the mound. “We’ve dealt with a lot as a rotation,” Samardzija said. “We hadn’t gotten much of a chance in the last month and a half or so to get in a good rhythm. … We’ve got a good group that sticks together and bounces ideas off each other. It’s a good thing we have going.” The Cubs have the pieces in place and the players have a better understanding of how to weather the rough road of losing teammates amid a successful stretch. Even though the front office has traded five players from the Opening Day roster within the past few weeks, the Cubs own a 13-11 record this month and – more importantly – are learning to win despite losing some of their best players. “I’ve said that since the first day I got here in the spring, it’s a great group of young guys and we have high expectations for ourselves,” outfielder Nate Schierholtz said. “I think the more experience we get the better we’re going to become. We’re not too far away from that.” • Meghan Montemurro covers the White Sox and Cubs for Shaw Media. Write to her at mmontemurro@shawmedia.com.

By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO mmontemurro@shawmedia.com CHICAGO – Cubs closer Kevin Gregg is no stranger to getting traded. Gregg, 35, has been part of a trade twice during his 11 seasons in the majors – including being sent from the Marlins to the Cubs in 2008 – and understands that’s part of the business. However, in the final hours ahead of Wednesday’s 3 p.m. trade deadline, he’s not sure which way president of baseball operations Theo Epstein is leaning. Gregg entered Monday’s game against the Brewers with 22 saves in 25 chances. Gregg said even if he does get traded, he would consider re-signing with the Cubs during the offseason, noting “if you’re happy with everything, it’s a good place for you.” “You’re fond of where you’re at, but you’ve also got to realize the team that traded for you wanted you more,” Gregg said. “So you’re fitting in that team, in their eyes, better. So you’re excited to go somewhere you’re wanted and be a part of that.”

Schierholtz ‘flattered’ by trade talk: Outfielder Nate Schierholtz appreciates contending playoff teams’ interest, but the 29-year-old would be happy to stay with the Cubs beyond Wednesday and be part of the organization’s future. Schierholtz has shined since signing a one-year deal with the Cubs in the offseason. Earning most of the playing time in right field, Schierholtz is batting .278 and has set a career-high in

home runs (14) and RBIs (43) with 59 games left to play. “Hopefully, if I’m still here, I’ll be thankful,” Schierholtz said. “But yeah, I’m just focused on coming in here, focused on today’s game. That’s really all we can control as players is coming out and doing our part to help the team win.” Former Cub Castillo remembered: Former pitcher Frank Castillo, who spent seven seasons with the Cubs from 1991 to 97, died Sunday in Bartlett Lake in Arizona, having drowned while swimming. Castillo, also previously a minor league coach in the organization, played with Cubs manager Dale Sveum in the minors. Castillo, 44, went 82-104 with a 4.56 ERA during 13 seasons in the majors. “It was obviously a bad accident and obviously a lake probably close to my house – he lived right over the hill from me,” Sveum said. “Didn’t see him a lot, but, yeah, a great guy, great teammate when I played with him and an unfortunate accident.” Quick hits: Junior Lake snapped a 0 for 14 slump with a single to left field in the third inning during his first career start at Wrigley Field on Monday. … Anthony Rizzo’s 30 doubles entering Monday’s game tied him for the second most in the National League. … In his rehab start at Advanced-A Daytona, Scott Baker allowed two runs (one earned) in 31/3 innings with two walks and two strikeouts.

FIVE-DAY PLANNER

MLS

Commish Garber: Expansion not question of ‘if,’ but ‘when’ By DAVE SKRETTA The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Expansion is coming to Major League Soccer. The only questions facing the league’s board are how many teams, where to locate them and when to bring them into the fold. Commissioner Don Garber told The Associated Press in a wideranging interview Monday that the league’s owners plan to discuss expansion “in great detail” during a meeting Wednesday. The MLS will play Italian club AS Roma in its annual All-Star game that night. At the moment, the league is focused on adding a second team in New York. But with David Beckham holding an ownership option and several cities expressing interest in a franchise, the league could shoot past the 20-team mark within the next few years. “The league is going to expand. It’s not an ‘if,’ but a ‘when,’ and it’s a ‘how many,’ ” Garber said. “There’s lots of interest among many, many different markets, so we’ll get pretty focused on establishing something firmer in the next few months.” There was a time when an ownership group could spend less than $10 million on a franchise, but those days are over. Surging attendance, modest but consistent TV growth and even the recent success of the U.S. national team have made the MLS a hot property. It cost English club Manchester City and its partner, the New York Yankees, an expansion fee of $100 million to launch New York City FC, which will begin play in 2015. Other cities that have expressed interest in a team, or have lowertier franchises who want to join MLS, include Atlanta, Sacramento, Orlando and the Twin Cities. Meanwhile, Beckham has been linked to businessman Marcelo

“The overall growth of the sport has been so dramatic over the last number of years by almost any measure.” Don Garber MLS commissioner Claure, who owns Bolivian team Club Bolivar. The two appear interested in Miami, where Claure’s wireless company Brightstar Corp. is based, and Beckham has said he plans to reveal his MLS intentions in the next few months. “The overall growth of the sport has been so dramatic over the last number of years by almost any measure,” Garber said. “Whether it’s the league or the national team or the women’s game, all the developments are sort of proving the fact that we’re a soccer nation.” Expansion isn’t the only issue for Major League Soccer, however. • The league’s TV deals with ESPN, NBC and Univision expire after the 2014 season, and Garber said discussions will begin early this fall on the next round of contracts. ESPN has broadcast MLS games since 2006, while NBC took over for Fox Soccer last season with a package that includes putting the majority of its games on NBC Sports Network. Univision joined up as a Spanishlanguage broadcaster this season. “We’ve very confident we have a strong television property,” said Garber, pointing toward overall growth in viewership the past two seasons. “We have great partners and there are many broadcasters that are really bullish on the sport, and I think it’s a good time to be in the business of selling sports television rights. There’s a lot of energy behind the sport.”

LOYOLA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

Back on court, pioneer Swoopes happy again New Ramblers coach’s story part of ESPN series By DOUG FEINBERG The Associated Press Sheryl Swoopes is finally happy again. It’s no surprise that her joy comes at a time when she’s back on the basketball court – a place where she’s always felt comfortable. Only this time it’s as a coach and not a player. The former WNBA great, who was one of the first stars in the sport, became the head coach at Loyola in April. It’s her first coaching job at any level. “Even when I was younger, I did some interviews and said, ‘Someday I know I’m going to coach,’ ” Swoopes said in a phone interview. “I’ve always had a passion for basketball and playing the game. Now I’m in a

position to give back and can stay involved in the game from a teaching standpoint.” Swoopes acknowledged she was a little nervous when she took over the program. Now she’s getting more comfortable. The team has started practice and will be headed to Italy in a few weeks for a foreign tour. This new opportunity has provided a high from what Swoopes concedes was the lowest point in her life four years ago. She had just been cut by the Seattle Storm and was having financial problems, which came to light when she failed to pay rent on a West Texas storage unit. Swoopes lost years of memorabilia from her celebrated basketball career, including awards, jerseys, fan mail and her college diploma. “I was just mad at everyone,” Swoopes said. “Mad at the WNBA, mad at life. I’d say a lot of it was my immaturity, my stubbornness – my mom says my hardheadedness. I wasn’t responsible in taking care of my things. You shouldn’t believe everything you read. A headline some-

where said I lost $50 million. That’s the furthest thing from the truth. It’s a big difference to say Sheryl blew $50 million and Sheryl went through $5 million.” Swoopes’ struggles with life, money and love are chronicled in a documentary by Hannah Storm as part of the ESPN Films Nine for IX documenSheryl tary series that will Swoopes air Tuesday night. Swoopes was tired of reading about her life story. She wanted to tell it herself. “You can find everything on Google, but none of it was in my voice. It’s totally different when it’s coming from you,” Swoopes said. “My biggest thing was, yes, I want to do it. I want to have an opportunity for people to hear my words and not someone else’s. It was time. I get emotional thinking about it, talking about it.” Storm knew Swoopes and her story well, having spent years in Houston.

“What I admired most about Sheryl during this process was that she took ownership of everything that has happened to her, and that is a very hard thing to do, to be so honest,” Storm said. “I wanted the film to be about Sheryl telling her side of the story, and I think that everyone who watches will take something different away from it.” Swoopes talks candidly in the film about her private life, recounting how at the pinnacle of her WNBA career, she divorced her husband and very publicly came out by confirming a relationship with then-Comets assistant coach Alisa Scott. At the time, she was the most recognizable athlete, male or female, to come out in a team sport. Swoopes eventually broke up with Scott and is engaged to Chris Unclesho, a man she’s known for a long time. “I can honestly say I’m not confused,” Swoopes says in the film. “I am loving and being loved by who I’m supposed to love and who gives me that love back.”

After spending the past few years away from the league, Swoopes was invited by the WNBA this past April to speak at rookie orientation. She left an impression with Brittney Griner, a Houston native who grew up watching the Comets. “Having a team in Houston you could turn to was always amazing. I liked her and she had the courage to come out when she came out, and I really admired that,” Griner said. “Hearing her story at rookie orientation made me gain even more respect for her. She was an awesome player.” Now as a coach, Swoopes hopes that she can inspire her team to new levels. “We will compete every time we step on the floor,” she said. “We’re not going to lose every game. We’re trying to teach them and they are learning. I’m accepting a lot of advice from those I trust. I had a lot of people who are in my corner, and I’m happy.” • Follow Doug Feinberg on Twitter at twitter.com/dougfeinberg.

SWIMMING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

Comeback by Phelps sounds possible now By PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press BARCELONA, Spain – When Michael Phelps walked away from swimming after the London Olympics, he was adamant about one thing: His career was over. Now, it sounds like he’s not so sure. While saying he’s never been happier with his life – and certainly doesn’t miss the grind of what it took to become the most winningest athlete in Olympic history – Phelps left the door open to change his mind before the 2016 Rio Games. “I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future,” Phelps said Monday. “I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow.” In Barcelona for the world swimming championships, Phelps spoke to The Associated Press and other international media organizations in a series of one-on-one interviews set up by his sponsor, Speedo. When asked by the AP, yes or no, whether he’ll compete at the next Olympics, Phelps coyly said he hasn’t planned that far ahead in his life. That’s a striking change from his comments before and immediately after the London Games, when he insisted his re-

tirement was set in stone and it had always been his goal to quit swimming before he tuned 30. Phelps will be 31 at the time of the opening ceremony for the Rio Games. “I don’t know. We’re in 2013,” he said, before adding, “There’s nothing in the works right now.” There’s plenty of time for a comeback. Phelps would likely want to begin training before the end of the year, which would allow him to get into peak condition leading up to the next world championships in 2015, an important stepping stone for the Olympics. Phelps certainly isn’t training at the moment. He jammed the small toe of his right foot on the edge of a sofa while at home in Baltimore, and aggravated the injury when he played in a golf tournament at Lake Tahoe. He’s wearing a boot cast on his foot while in Barcelona to cope with a small stress fracture. After some sightseeing and promotional appearances, Phelps took in a second night of swimming at the Palau Sant Jordi before getting ready to head back to the U.S. on Tuesday. He was accompanied by his new girlfriend, Golf Channel reporter Win McMurry.

Lithuanian teen Meilutyte sets record in 100m breast By PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press BARCELONA, Spain – For Ruta Meilutyte, a gold medal would merely be a bonus. She’s already grabbed what she came for at these world swimming championships. A breakout star at last year’s London Olympics, the 16-year-old from Lithuania set the first world record of the meet Monday – in the semifinals of the 100-meter breaststroke, no less. Meilutyte will be an overwhelming favorite in the final Tuesday, but she considers the record a bigger accomplishment than a world championship. She nearly broke the

mark during the morning preliminaries, then returned in the evening to go even faster. The youngster touched in 1:04.35, beating the record set by American Jessica Hardy in 2009 at the end of the rubberized suit era. The kids are doing all right at these worlds, that’s for sure. Eighteen-year-old Missy Franklin cruised into the final of the 100 backstroke as the top qualifier, despite a tough start in the semifinals when her right leg slipped while pushing off the wall. Another young American, 16-year-old Katie Ledecky, followed her gold medal in the 400 freestyle by easily qualifying for the 1,500 free final.

Be allergy-safe Up to 6 million Americans are at risk for a severe allergic reaction or anaphylaxis. For these people, a bee sting, shrimp on the barbecue or a latex balloon may lead to a life-threatening emergency. That’s why it’s important to have a plan in place to help avoid allergens and be prepared if accidental contact occurs. Picnics and BBQs n Make everyone aware of your or your child’s severe allergies. n Consider making homemade food rather than store-bought or takeout, as these foods may contain hidden allergens. n Single-serve condiment packets can help avoid cross-contamination. n Tablecloths can help protect against anything left on the table from previous meals. n Use foil when grilling food to avoid past contaminants. n Look for non-latex balloon alternatives, such as mylar balloons, for celebration needs. Stinging insects n Keep food and drink, especially sweets, covered to avoid attracting stinging insects. n Don’t swat at bees. Walk away slowly instead. n Wearing closefitting long sleeves and pants or insect repellent can reduce the risk of getting stung. n Bees and wasps look for food among flowers, plants and garbage, so beware of these areas.

CHILDREN’S HEALTH

DTaP shots Playing outdoors can mean getting cuts that may become infected with bacteria commonly found in soil, including the ones that cause tetanus. The DTaP vaccine (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) is highly effective in preventing tetanus in young children. DTaP shots are recommended for babies at ages 2, 4 and 6 months, and again at 15 to 18 months. A DTaP booster is recommended for children ages 4 to 6. Because immunity decreases over time, older children between the ages of 11 and 18 also should get the vaccine.

Hello, room service Hospitals offer better food as patient satisfaction increases Medicare funding By PHIL GALEWITZ Kaiser Health News When Lauren Heath learned she had to spend an extra day in Rex Hospital after delivering her baby girl in May, she wasn’t complaining. “It means I get three more really good meals,” said Heath, 29, of Wake Forest, N.C. “The food is amazing.” Instead of mystery meat and Jell-O, she enjoyed banana-nut pancakes, Caribbean grilled chicken salad, Philly-style cheesesteaks, orzo salad and baked potato wedges. With an extra day’s stay, she was looking forward to trying the hospital’s lime and ginger-glazed salmon. The food was so good even her out-of-town mom decided to have her meals brought from the hospital cafeteria. Rex, part of the University of North Carolina Health System, is one of a growing number of hospitals nationwide that are tossing out their fryers and adopting hotel-style “room service,” where patients can order food any time from a large menu. Many also are setting up gardens to grow their own vegetables, inviting local farmers to sell produce in their lobbies and turning food presentations into works of art – even when made puree style.

Hospitals are breaking from the traditional fare they typically offer by beefing up their presentations, setting up gardens to grow their own vegetables and even inviting local farmers to sell produce in their lobbies.

Improved fare Here’s a sample of some of the new foods hospitals are offering: n Banana-nut pancakes n Lime and ginger-glazed salmon n Brined pickles, cured turkey

pastrami and fermented cabbage for sauerkraut – all done on site n Red wine-marinated London broil with au jus and chicken Penang n Machaca, braised beef simmered in a chipotle broth

Hospital food redefined Administrators say the focus on food has taken on extra importance since Medicare last year began paying them based partly on their patient satisfaction scores, a change that is part of the federal health care law known as Obamacare. “Food service helps the overall experience,” Jim McGrody, director of food and nutrition at Rex, said as he inspected his kitchen cold room used for brining pickles, curing turkey pastrami and fermenting cabbage into sauerkraut. Several letters of praise from former patients hang in the kitchen. While Medicare’s surveys do not ask about food, Rex administrators believe their culinary efforts help explain their better-than-average overall satisfaction rates. About 84 percent of Rex patients surveyed said they would recommend the hospital, compared with 71 percent nationally. “I have no doubt that raising the culinary bar improves our customer satisfaction scores and elevates the overall patient experience,” said Chad T. Lefteris, vice president of operations at Rex. Food management companies that specialize in health care facilities say they are getting more

requests from hospitals looking to boost their satisfaction scores for Medicare. Hospitals are breaking from the traditional fare they typically offer by beefing up their presentations, setting up gardens to grow their own vegetables and even inviting local farmers to sell produce in their lobbies. “Health care reform is pushing a lot of these changes,” said Richard Schenkel, CEO of Unidine, a Boston-based company that manages food service at 20 hospitals. “There is a belief that when you have horrible food, it affects your patient satisfaction scores,” he said. “Patients remember their food. ... It’s the one thing that comes to them three times a day.” The economics are hard to resist, say food service consultants. Hospitals can save thousands of dollars a year just from reduced waste by letting patients order meals room-service style. At the same time, better quality boosts business for on-site cafeterias. And better food also can help a hospital attract more patients by improving its image, said Bill Klein, CEO of DM&A, a California consulting firm.

Their own ‘Iron Chef’ The trend has meant hospital food has become a specialty of its own – complete with its own version of “Iron Chef.” Rex won the top prize in last year’s culinary competition, sponsored by the Association of Healthcare Food Service. Five hospitals competed in June in New Orleans to make a dish under tight nutritional guidelines that cost less than $7 to produce. The 2013 winner was Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare in Illinois. Hospitals also are offering more choices to their patients. UNC Healthcare in Chapel Hill, N.C., offers a 20-page menu that looks like something you would see at Cheesecake Factory. Patients can choose from standard fare such as cereal and eggs, as well as items such as gourmet burritos, red wine-marinated London broil with au jus and chicken Penang. The hospital has even created its own brands: Chinese selections are called Red Ginger; burritos are sold under the name Bandaleros; chicken and barbecue items fall under Carolina Chicken Co. The 820-bed facility began using

the extended menu last year, as well as room-service style food delivery so patients get what they want when they want it. Previously, they would select from one or two entrees and the food would be delivered to everyone at the same time. That meant many patients got cold food, or food they simply didn’t want. Today, all the food orders are tracked by bar codes much the way hospitals track medications. Food costs at the hospital fell by $400,000 in the first year of its “restaurant delivery” system because items not served to patients during peak meal periods are sent to hospital cafeterias to avoid waste. “It’s been a game changer for us,” said Angelo Mojica, director of food and nutrition services at UNC. He said patient satisfaction scores, which he tracks every day on a television monitor in the kitchen, have soared to the 99th percentile. He parses those ratings by hospital floor and even by type of room – private or semi-private. Like doctors, food service managers, including Mojica, make daily “rounds” to talk to patients about their dining needs and preferences. Patients call in their orders and speak to a food service representative located just off the main kitchen who ensures they stay within dietary restrictions, such as limited salt or calories. “A heart patient may get the fried chicken for lunch, but we tell them they may only get a salad for dinner,” he said.

“Health care reform is pushing a lot of these changes. There is a belief that when you have horrible food, it affects your patient satisfaction scores. Patients remember their food. ... It’s the one thing that comes to them three times a day.” Richard Schenkel, CEO of Unidine

SENIOR HEALTH

Long-term care No matter your age, you can help keep your body healthy and your money out of the health care system by eating right, exercising and avoiding habits that contribute to chronic illness. In your 50s, stop putting off long-term care insurance. Those care expenses can pose a real threat to your retirement savings and lifestyle. In your 60s, don’t go without it. If you retire early and lack employer-provided health insurance, don’t be tempted to cut costs and skip insurance until you’re eligible for Medicare at age 65.

Would you prefer surgery on Monday or Friday? A recent article that received a great deal of media attention discussed the association between the day of the week that elective surgery took place and the chances of the patient dying after the surgery, the mortality rate. In this three-year study, just more than 4 million elective surgical procedures were reviewed to determine the overall 30-day mortality rate, and, if the day that surgery was performed affected the mortality rate. Results showed that, when compared with surgical procedures done on a Monday, the mortality rate was 7 percent higher on Tuesdays, 15 percent

VIEWS Dr. Murray Feingold higher on Wednesdays, 21 percent higher on Thursdays and 44 percent higher on Fridays. But the most disturbing figure was the mortality rate present during the weekends – it was 82 percent higher than on a Monday. Researchers also noted this high mortality rate wasn’t because the patients who were operated on during the weekends were more ill or had more medical or surgical

risks than patients operated on Mondays. Previous studies have shown weekend surgical procedures are not the only medical situation in which there is a higher mortality rate. For example, one study showed patients admitted to intensive care units after hours and on weekends also had a higher mortality rate compared with patients admitted during regular working hours. It is theorized these higher mortality rates were due to fewer staff members being available and the lack of important services during weekends and off hours.

However, another study on the same subject showed the mortality rate of trauma patients does not always have to increase during the weekends and off hours. In this study, researchers determined if the day of the week the patient was admitted influenced the risk of adverse outcomes in a hospital system that had a highly developed acute care and trauma system in place. This included the availability of personnel. Results of the study showed there was no increase in mortality in that type of hospital setting. It is believed mortality rates during weekends and off

hours can be reduced by better logistical planning and having available the needed services and essential medical personnel. This of course makes sense, but it costs a lot of money, and therein lies the rub.

STYLE High-heeled shoes killing your feet Page D2 • Tuesday, July 30, 2013

By CHRISTINA IANZITO The Washington Post Now is the season when women take their freshly pedicured toes al fresco, often courtesy of strappy high-heel sandals or open-toed pumps that look fabulous but sometimes feel like the masochistic torture tools that many podiatrists insist they are. Michael Liebow, a podiatrist in Bethesda, Md., pulls out a wince-inducing photograph of a foot X-rayed in a high-heel shoe: It reveals the ball of the foot at a nearly 90 degree angle to the bones in the rest of the foot. It does not look good. The X-ray is a prop that Liebow says he shows to patients who “walk into the office in 6-inch heels and say, ‘My feet are killing me! Why?’ “ He says he tells them, “That is not how your foot has evolved to walk.” To sum up his brief and frequently futile plea for foot health: Humans are meant to walk heel-to-toe, with the leg at about a 90-degree angle to the foot and the ankle joint employing a 60-degree range of motion during normal daily activities. By wearing a high heel, Liebow explains, “you’re altering the position of the foot and how the foot is to function. Therefore, lots of bad things happen.” Shall we count the ways? Among the more common problems podiatrists say they see in women are calluses and, more painfully, corns, hard nuggets of keratin buildup caused by pressure on the skin. With high heels, corns develop under the balls of the foot where the weight of your body presses down, and they feel like small rocks underfoot when you walk. Liebow also sees capsulitis, a painful inflammation of the joints where the toes attach to the foot, and neuromas, or pinched nerves, where pointy high heels squeeze the toes. And when the heel is frequently in a high-heel shoe, it can cause the Achilles tendon (which connects the calf muscle to the heel bone) to tighten. When you kick off your shoes and the heel comes down to the floor at the end of the day, the extra stretching of the tendon can lead to a condition called Achilles tendinitis. Wearing high heels also can cause inflammation of the connective tissue at the

PlanitNorthwest/PlanitNorthwest.com

bottom of the foot, the plantar fascia. That can result in severe heel pain and the need for aggressive treatments such as oral anti-inflammatories, oral steroids, cortisone injections, walking boots and crutches. All of these conditions can be incredibly painful, requiring corticosteroid shots and, ideally, flatter and wider shoes. His patients will take the shots, but give up the shoes? Women, Liebow says, “will wear their high-heeled shoes until their feet are bloody stumps.” Take Danielle Pletka, vice president for foreign and defense policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute. She wears 4- or 5-inch heels to work most days; on a recent Tuesday, she towered in 5-inch stiletto-heeled black Sergio Rossi open-toed booties. “There are lots of things that impact the way you look that aren’t necessarily optimal for every muscle in your body,” says Pletka, who admits she has some high pairs “that are uncomfortable, no question.” But, she adds, “you want to look nice. I always get nice comments on my shoes. And I like it.” Erika Schwartz, a podiatrist who practices in Washington, says when she asks her patients to stick with heels less than 2 inches high, “some say, ‘Oh, you’re so cute! No, I’m not going to wear under 2 inches, but it’s very cute of you to say that!’ “ Schwartz says she understands many are in professions that demand a more fashionable shoe than the comfy, orthopedically correct footwear she wears to work. So she tells them to at least “walk in something else. Put those dress shoes on when you get to the office. Minimizing the amount of time that you’re standing or walking will minimize the issues that come along with such an unnatural position of the foot.” Did we mention walking too long in high-heeled shoes can result in, besides all of the above, stress fractures, or cracks in the bones of the feet? Schwartz also suggests women avoid the thin, stilettostyle heel: “The bigger the heel, if it’s chunky or a wedge, seems to be better because the shoe has a wider base of stability. A skinnier heel and you’re more likely to have

ankle spraining.” You also can break your ankle or injure the ligaments on the side of your ankle, among other body parts, when you fall from wobbly high shoes – thus becoming “fashion roadkill.” Franklin Polun, a podiatrist with offices in Washington and Maryland – the name of his website is mydamnfoothurts.com – estimates at least a quarter of his female patients come in with issues related to high heels. Like Schwartz’s patients, many of them aren’t willing to throw out their Manolo Blahniks (or knock-offs). “A high-heeled shoe is sexier-looking,” he says. “I get that.” So he tries to give them, as he puts it, “an action plan that’s actually doable.” Polun’s advice includes going with a rubber-soled shoe over leather, because rubber is better able to absorb pressure on nerves in the feet. He also suggests shopping for shoes at the end of the day, when your foot is most swollen, rather than in the morning. Liebow, too, has a “short list of things you can do to minimize the problems” if you insist on wearing high heels. The list includes buying only shoes with good padding at the balls of the foot and a gradual slope (rather than the 90-degree angle shown in his X-ray), so “the force is more evenly distributed” over the foot. As for how high you can safely go with heels, Liebow says, “there’s no height that’s good.” But “most women can handle a heel of an inch or two with minimal side effects.” And the proclivity toward foot problems does depend somewhat on the person. Pletka says her feet rarely hurt in her 4-inch heels, and she points out that, though heels have their problems, “Uggs are really bad for your feet: They don’t support your arches.” Liebow agrees some people have problems wearing such slip-on woolly winter boots, which often have little or no support; ditto for that other summertime favorite, flipflops. “Not only that,” Pletka adds, “they’re ugly as sin. So it just goes to show you.” A spokesman for UGG Australia said the company makes many varieties of boots, for all tastes, and has versions with plenty of support.

High heels: A real pain in the feet Often painstakingly selected to complete outfits, high heels put stress not just on feet, but on ankles, knees and backs, contributing to the approximately $3.5 billion spent annually in the United States for women's foot surgeries, which cause them to lose 15 million work days yearly.

EXAGERRATED POSTURE

Give your feet a break and buy the right shoes Dear Dr. 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,

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff 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 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.

Store’s countertops are no place to set dirty toddlers 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/toddlers on the counter while we discuss their needs. Sometimes these children have dirty diapers. While I am not a parent, I do understand 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

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips 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 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 if a child should fall off the counter, there could be liability involved. 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. Friends: PLEASE know that I appreciate being invited, but 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 buy a new one. The dealer told me not to loan it to anyone because

they pushed the old one over sticks and stones and destroyed the blades. 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 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.

TODAY - In the year ahead, a great deal of your focus is likely to be on many other things than your material concerns. Regardless, you’re still apt to show a steady financial growth. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There is good reason for your ears to be ringing today, because others are likely talking about you. Don’t worry -- it would boost your ego if you could hear what they’re saying. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Even if to the casual observer a recent development appears to be rather insignificant, you’ll know its true worth. It’ll elevate your hopes and expectations. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Look to turn a small profit today, either from a situation where you might share a common interest with another or from being in a position to serve as an intermediary.

In fact, there is little doubt that your brightness will win out over others’ boldness.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

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 ive spades after West leads the diamond ace? After North’s one-diamond opening, South, with a game-going hand, planned to bid irst 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 it, 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 ive. And the singleton heart looked good. Now East made a really aggressive bid with ive hearts. However, South continued with ive 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 ive-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!
