D-428 to vote on schedule changes Plan for middle schools would cut music class and replace it with expanded math period By CHRIS BURROWS DeKALB – DeKalb School District 428 board members are expected to vote today on proposed changes to the district’s middle school schedules. Under the proposal, a nine-week general music class would be eliminated

from the curriculum to make way for an expanded mathematics period. The band and orchestra ensembles, which were considered for elimination, would remain. “It maintains all musical programs. There’s a lot of misinformation out there; it maintains the ensembles,” said Doug Moeller, the district’s assistant superin-

tendent for curriculum & student services. “The only thing that would be cut is the general music, which is one of the nine-week roDoug tations.” Moeller If approved, the changes would go into

effect for the 2014-15 school year and three full-time teaching positions would be cut. Several local parents and residents attended the July 16 meeting when the proposal was discussed. Under the current schedule, middle school students have an encore period, which includes nine-week classes in art, computers, health and

Hastened conceal carry denied

NIU prepares for new season

Appeals court will review case By JIM SUHR The Associated Press ST. LOUIS – A federal appeals court has refused an urgent request by gun rights advocates to let Illinois residents immediately tote firearms in public under the state’s fledgling concealed-carry law, although the panel has decided to give the matter a speedy review. The Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied the request Thursday and said it expects both sides to submit written briefs by Aug. 14 regarding whether the months-long wait to implementing the law is unreasonable and illegal, as critics insist. No oral arguments on the matter had been scheduled as of Monday. Mary Shepard and the Illinois State Rifle Association asked the Chicago appellate court to intervene after failing to sway a federal judge in East St. Louis last month to allow immediate concealed carry. The Illinois Legislature passed the last-in-the-nation concealed-carry law July 9 against Gov. Pat Quinn’s objections, giving Illinois State Police 180 days to set up the permit process and an additional 90 days to process applications. Shepard and the rifle group consider that “foot-dragging” and a “daily, irreparable violation of their Second Amendment rights,” according to their July 30 filing to the 7th Circuit Court. “This sort of ongoing, unabated, fully adjudicated violation of an enumerated constitutional right epitomizes irreparable harm,” William Howard, an attorney for Shepard and the gun group, wrote in then in the emergency motion for an injunction. Howard’s clients have pressed that Firearm Owners Identification cards possessed by Illinois gun owners serve as concealed-carry permits “for the time being.” The state, represented by

orthern Illinois completed its first practice of fall camp Monday afternoon at Huskie Stadium. The Huskies will hold 24 practices in DeKalb over the next three weeks, closing fall camp Aug. 24, leading up to Aug. 31’s season opener at Iowa. “It feels good to be organized. Organized team football with the coaches out there

and running a little bit smoother than it did [during summer workouts],” Huskies quarterback Jordan Lynch said. “Overall, it feels good. First day, freshmen jitters, trying to see what the freshmen are all about. It just feels good to be out there.” NIU practiced in helmets, and won’t be in full pads until Friday. The Huskies will hold their first scrimmage at 7:45 p.m. Saturday. “They came out and worked hard, I’ll tell you that,” head coach Rod Carey said. “I

was pleased with the tempo. A lot of things to clean up just like everybody.” The Orange Bowl appearance will always be fresh in everyone’s minds. However, Carey has made sure his crew has moved on. Right now, the focus is on the Hawkeyes. “We’re working on Iowa now. The last game we played, we lost,” Lynch said. “It’s not a revenge game. We’ve got tons of new players on this team. It’s a totally different team, we’re still trying to find out our identity.”

Al-Qaida chief’s message led to embassy closures By KIMBERLY DOZIER and LARA JAKES The Associated Press WASHINGTON – An intercepted secret message between al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahri and his deputy in Yemen about plans for a major terror attack was the trigger that set off the current shutdown of many U.S. embassies, two officials told The Associated Press on Monday. A U.S. intelligence official and a Mideast diplomat said al-Zawahri’s message was picked up several weeks

ago and appeared to initially target Yemeni interests. The threat was expanded to include American or other Western sites abroad, officials said, indicating the target could be a single embassy, a number of posts or some other site. Lawmakers have said it was a massive plot in the final stages, but they have offered no specifics. The intelligence official said the message was sent to Nasser al-Wahishi, the head of the terror network’s organization, based in Yemen, known as al-Qaida in the Ara-

bian Peninsula. Both officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the sensitive issue publicly. American spies and intelligence analysts Monday scoured email, phone calls and radio communications between al-Qaida operatives in Yemen and the organization’s senior leaders to determine the timing and targets of the planned attack. The call from al-Zawahri,

Lab-grown hamburger short on flavor

SUBSCRIPTION INFORMATION Daily: $.75 / issue Sunday: $1.50 / issue Basic weekly rate: $5.25 Basic annual rate: $273

By MARIA CHENG The Associated Press LONDON – The food of the future could do with a pinch of seasoning – and maybe some cheese. Two volunteers who took the first public bites of hamburger grown in a laboratory gave it good marks for texture but agreed there was something missing. “I miss the salt and pepper,” said Austrian nutritionist Hanni Ruetzler. U.S. journalist Josh Schonwald confessed to a difficulty in judging a burger “without ketchup or onions or jalapenos or bacon.” Both tasters shunned the bun, lettuce and sliced tomatoes offered to them to concentrate on the flavor of the meat itself. Mark Post, the Dutch scientist who led the team that grew the meat from cattle stem cells, regretted having served the patty without his favorite topping: aged gouda cheese. “That would have enhanced the whole experience tremendously,” he told The Associated Press. He said he was pleased with the reviews: “It’s not perfect, but it’s a good start.” Post, whose team at Maastricht University in the Netherlands developed the burger over five years, hopes that making meat in labs could eventually help feed the world and fight climate change – although that goal is probably a decade or two away, at best. “The first [lab-made] meat products are going to be very exclusive,” said Isha Datar, director of New Harvest, an international nonprofit that promotes meat alternatives. “These burgers won’t be in Happy Meals before someone rich and famous is eating them.” Sergey Brin, a co-founder of Google,

A new cultured beef burger made from beef grown in a laboratory from stem cells of cattle is cooked Monday by chef Richard McGeown during the world’s first public tasting event for the food product held in London. The cultured beef product was developed by professor Mark Post, not pictured, of Netherland’s Maastricht University.

Voice your opinion Would you eat beef grown from cattle stem cells? Vote online at announced that he funded the 250,000euro ($330,000) project, saying he was motivated by a concern for animal welfare. “We’re trying to create the first cultured beef hamburger,” he said in a videotaped message. “From there, I’m optimistic we can really scale up by leaps and bounds.” Scientists agreed that improving the

flavor probably won’t be hard. “Taste is the least [important] problem since this could be controlled by letting some of the stem cells develop into fat cells,” said Stig Omholt, director of biotechnology at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. Adding fat to the burgers this way would probably be healthier than getting it from naturally chunky cows, said Omholt, who was not involved in the project. He called Monday’s tasting a publicity stunt – but not in a bad way. He said it was a smart way to draw public attention, and possibly investor funds, to efforts to develop lab-grown meat.

Kids with rare premature aging disease meet By BRETT ZONGKER The Associated Press ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Imagine having a child who was born with cataracts and brain damage, and develops dementia and other ailments more often found in the elderly – and not knowing what would cause such ailments. Parents who share such experiences because their children have the rare genetic disease Cockayne syndrome recently gathered with their families near Washington so their kids could meet others like themselves. Scientists and researchers joined them to observe symptoms and search for ways to provide treatment. Experts say children with Cockayne syndrome are mostly happy and jovial, despite their conditions. They often experience poor growth, premature aging and sensitivity to sunlight. Some may develop bits of gray hair, wrinkled skin or high blood pressure. Those with severe cases often live only a few years, while less severe onsets can affect people into their 40s. Scientists are still searching for answers about the disease, estimated to affect one in 500,000 children. It’s difficult to diagnose.

Jackie Clark said she knew something wasn’t right with her baby, Gigi, shortly after she was born, even though doctors said everything was fine. Soon they found Gigi had cataracts. They later found a problem with her nerve endings that made her itchy all the time. “Slowly everything started to unravel as we discovered that she couldn’t hear and she wasn’t developing right,” Clark said. “It took us five years before we were able to figure out that she had Cockayne syndrome. At that point, she was already close to the end of her lifespan. She died four months later.” Now Clark leads the Share and Care Cockayne Syndrome Network and organizes a conference each year for families to meet. She said the gatherings help because the disease can be isolating. Dr. Edward Neilan, a leading researcher and pediatrician who has treated children with Cockayne at Boston Children’s Hospital, and a handful of other researchers often attend the conferences to help them search for answers in recognizing and treating the disease. “Once you’ve seen a condition, it takes on a personal, memorable aspect to you and becomes easier to rec-

ognize” he said. “But if you’ve never seen it before and you’re only relying on textbooks, it’s very hard to recognize something that you’ve never seen before.” Genetic testing can detect mutations that cause the disease, but to diagnose the condition in a child, a doctor would have to suspect Cockayne in order to test the patient’s cells, experts said. Many patients develop a distinct facial appearance, and some families self-diagnose their children and seek help. Dr. Philip J. Brooks, an adjunct investigator and rare disease researcher at the National Institutes of Health, developed a hypothesis that the brain disease is caused by cells that aren’t making proteins they need to function normally. Then the cells are prone to dying. Brooks said meeting affected children over the past eight years sparked his interest in the rare condition. He said it hasn’t received much research focus or public attention. “I had learned about it in textbooks and seen pictures, but that’s not the same thing as seeing it,” he said. “That had a big impact on me and made me want to study this and to do something to help these people.”

Amazon founder Bezos to buy Washington Post The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Jeff Bezos, the founder who helped bring books into the digital age, is going after another pillar of “old media”: the newspaper. Bezos is buying The Washington Post and other newspapers for $250 million, The Washington Post Co., announced Monday. Bezos is buying the paper as an individual. Inc. is not involved. Washington Post chairman and CEO Donald Graham called Bezos a “uniquely good new owner.” He said the decision was made after years of news-

paper industry challenges. The company, which owns the Kaplan education business and several TV stations, will change its name but didn’t say what the new name will be. Bezos said in a statement that he understands the Post’s “critical role” in Washington and said its values won’t change. “The paper’s duty will remain to its readers and Jeff Bezos not to the private interests of its owners,” Bezos said to Post employees in a letter distributed to the media. “We will continue to follow the truth wherever it leads, and we’ll work

hard not to make mistakes. When we do, we will own up to them quickly and completely.” Katharine Weymouth, the paper’s publisher and CEO and a member of the Graham family that has owned the paper since 1933, will remain in her post. She has asked other senior managers to stay in their posts as well. “Mr. Bezos knows as well as anyone the opportunities that come with revolutionary technology when we understand how to make the most of it,” she said in a letter to readers. “Under his ownership and with his management savvy, we will be able to accelerate the pace and quality of innovation.”

Sycamore restricts parking on North Cross Street By FELIX SARVER SYCAMORE – The west side of North Cross Street in Sycamore will no longer allow parking during the week. Sycamore City Council approved of an ordinance Monday to keep the street free of parking from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Sycamore Mayor Ken Mundy said the changes to the parking was meant to make the street safer. Cars tend to be

parked on both sides of the street, which receives heavy traffic from trucks. “It’s a safety-driven issue,” Mundy said. “... We were able to devise a plan, tweak it a little bit and do something that is focused on work hours.” The ordinance was initially requested by the Sycamore Police Department after it received several complaints. Many of them came from the city’s Public Works Department. The City Council discussed the issue June 17 and

New ordinance n What: No parking n When: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday n Where: West side of North Cross Street in Sycamore

July 15. During the June 17 meeting, several residents who live on North Cross Street came forward with concerns about the city making park-

ing off-limits on the street. They mentioned that closing the street for parking might allow the trucks to drive faster and prevent needed parking for them. Sycamore City Manager Brian Gregory said letters about the proposed parking changes were sent to residents. As requested by the council, letters were delivered to residents July 23 to receive feedback from them, he said. “No concerns had been raised at the time of writing

or nothing over the weekend either,” Gregory said. “We haven’t had any feedback from any residents.” Pete Paulsen, 2nd Ward alderman, said he checked the streets numerous times since the issue was brought to the city’s attention and didn’t find many cars parked there. “Not many cars usually park there during the day anyway, at least not during this time of the year,” Paulsen said. The council passed the or-

dinance on a 6-1 vote. Steve Braser, 3rd Ward alderman, voted against the changes because the hours the streets are closed for parking are not the same as the hours when city employees are active during the day. “I don’t know what [the 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. time] does for them,” Braser said. He said as far as he knew, the parking changes will affect three to four residents who can’t park on the west side of the street.

Brothers accused of Pink brigade gives extra support shooting into crowd Guardians tour Genoa area visiting cancer survivors By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI DeKALB – Two brothers suspected of shooting into a crowded parking lot during a late-night party were in the DeKalb County Jail on Monday. David B. Holt, 17, and Jerry D. Holt, 20, both of the 1600 block of Wild Rose Lane in Aurora, were charged with aggravated d i s c h a r g e Jerry D. Holt of a firearm and reckless discharge of a firearm. The more serious charge, aggravated discharge of a firearm, is typically punishable by up to 15 years in prison. No one was injured during the incident. The brothers were at a

party about 1:51 a.m. July 27 in an apartment at 830 Greenbrier Road in DeKalb, authorities said. An argument broke out and spilled into the apartment complex’s parking lot, DeKalb police Lt. Bob Redel said. Shots were fired from an apartment balcony into the crowd in the parking lot, Redel said. David Holt told police he fired the shots, but police were still investigating Monday who David B. Holt was responsible, authorities said. Police found shell casings at the scene. David Holt is due in court Today. Jerry Holt is next due in court Aug. 15. Bond for each was set at $250,000, which requires posting $25,000 to be released while the case is pending.

Sears debuts anti-bullying promotion

Sears revealed a window display Monday at its State Street store in Chicago showcasing three pairs of jeans decorated by Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian to raise awareness for Team Up to Stop Bullying. The decorated jeans – featuring the autograph and handprint of each celebrity sister to symbolize her commitment to end bullying – will be awarded to winners of a Shop Your Way Rewards sweepstakes, with Sears making a donation to the nonprofit charities associated with Team Up to Stop Bullying for every entry.

By FELIX SARVER GENOA – There was a surprise for Carol Fogle in the parking lot of Genoa-Kingston High School. The administrative assistant to the Genoa-Kingston School District 424 superintendent was talking with her co-workers in the school’s main office when she was asked to come to the front desk. Waiting there were firefighters dressed in pink along with friends and family. Outside the office was a convoy of firetrucks and ambulances, including a pink firetruck towing a trailer with a giant silver Ribbon of Hope. Fogle was surprised. Standing before her were Pink Heals Tour guardians ready to hug and support her fight against breast cancer. She was diagnosed more than three years ago. “I feel like I know there’s lots of other people out there that battle this, and it’s very difficult, but I can’t ask for better support from my family and my co-workers and my church,” Fogle said. Fogle was almost in tears after she was guided outside the school – with the Cogs’ school band playing – to sign the pink truck. The stop was one of four visits the Pink Heals Tour made Monday to support residents fighting cancer. The Pink Heals Tour has traveled through six states since June. It stationed its vehicles at Pete’s Castle Mara-

How to help

thon in Genoa before making home visits. Cori Petersen-Cork, vice president of Pete’s Castle and Burlington Oasis, helped coordinate the visits, while using the ice cream parlor at the gas station and T-shirt sales to raise funds for local charities. She said she wanted to help because she lost

her mother to cancer several years ago. “It’s just a very healing, loving thing,” she said of the tour. “… It lets them know someone is thinking of them.” Firefighters from other cities and states were traveling on the tour. Eddie McDonald, a Pink Heals guardian from Alabama, said the guardians were also there to teach people how to raise funds for local charities and ensure their donations are spent locally. The tour is meant to support women battling cancer because of the influential role

they play in people’s lives, he said. “They’re the backbone of this country, plain and simple,” McDonald said. Barbara Barrett was another woman the Pink Heals guardians visited. The receptionist for Dr. Jeffrey Caron in Genoa was told three weeks ago her breast cancer was in remission. She said she wanted to support others in their fight. “Don’t ever give up,” she said. “Don’t ever stop fighting. Someone is always praying for you, whether you know it or not.”

part-time at the center, saying she loves her job caring for its big cats. Marissa Dub, 23, who is from Streamwood, Ill., suffered severe head, neck and vocal cord

injuries in the June 21 attack at the Exotic Feline Rescue Center near Center Point, Ind. She experienced multiple strokes and lost all movement on one side of her face after the attack.

But Dub told WLS-TV that she’s not angry at the tiger and insists that it was just trying to play when it attacked after she mistakenly left a cage gate open.

Quinn interested in forming Metra task force $718,000 buyout of ousted Metra CEO Alex Clifford. He claims he was pushed out for resisting pressure on hiring and salary issues from politicians, including Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan, who denies wrongdoing. Quinn said the problems that have plagued Metra for years, including the latest ones, should sound an “alarm bell” for needed reforms. “We need to have fundamental overhaul in the whole

oversight of public transit in northeastern Illinois,” Quinn said after an unrelated event in Chicago. The Chicago Democrat didn’t go into detail about his plan or disclose a timeline for it, but he said he’d likely wait to form a task force until after a state inspector general’s investigation of the allegations is completed. He suggested that Illinois Transportation Secretary Ann Schneider would likely be one of the pan-

Union: Special ed, arts hit hard by CPS cuts

Coroner says 6-year-old Naperville boy drowned

CHICAGO – A union representing Chicago’s public school teachers said nearly 15 percent of educators who are being laid off teach special education, while another 9 percent teach art and music. The Chicago Teachers Union told the Chicago Sun-Times that 250 special education teachers and 75 bilingual teachers are among the 1,700 educators whose jobs are being cut. Another 159 teach music, visual and performing arts. But officials with Chicago Public Schools say those numbers are inflated. They say about 200 special ed and bilingual teachers are losing their jobs.

NAPERVILLE – An autopsy shows a 6-year-old suburban Chicago boy drowned before he was spotted face-down in a Naperville pond. The DuPage County coroner’s office confirmed the cause of death for Amer Kahn, whose body was found Saturday morning in a retention pond near his family’s home. Kahn was pronounced dead at Edward Hospital. His father is Asghar Mohammed. He told WLS-TV that the boy liked the water. His father believes Amer managed to sneak away to play in the water.

ban Chicago said it’ll begin randomly testing all students this fall to determine if any of them have been drinking alcohol. The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reported that St. Viator High School in Arlington Heights said the tests will be done with a hair sample. Officials said that can determine if a student has consumed alcohol in the past 90 days. The testing was the idea of the school’s president, the Rev. Corey Brost. He recommended it after reading an article about a private school in New York that does it. That school uses the same company for alcohol testing that St. Viator has used to test students for drugs since 2007. St. Viator administrators approved the testing.

to appoint board members, but thinks an overhaul of the structure is needed. Quinn said he’d want the panel to come up with recommendations for lawmakers, potentially by the fall. Metra has been in the spotlight for corruption issues before, starting with bribery allegations about a decade ago. Clifford’s predecessor, Phil Pagano, was accused of defrauding Metra out of about $475,000. He committed sui-

el experts. Quinn has formed similar panels before. In 2009, he appointed a group to investigate admission practices at the University of Illinois after admission preferences for well-connected applicants were revealed by news reports. Eventually, Quinn replaced nearly all board members at the university. In the case of Metra, Quinn doesn’t have the same power

cide in 2010 by stepping in front of a Metra train. Quinn isn’t the only one advocating for reforms at RTA and Metra. His potential 2014 gubernatorial challengers, including Democratic former White House chief of staff Bill Daley, have called for changes. Republican state Sen. Bill Brady, who has also launched a bid, has proposed legislation for reforms, including term limits for board members.

5th case of rare stomach bug reported in Illinois The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Illinois reported one new case of a rare stomach illness Monday, bringing the total number of cases in the state to five. Health officials investigating the cases have been unable to track the illness to any particular food source, said Illinois Department of Public Health spokeswoman Melaney Arnold. The cases are spread out in five separate counties, making it difficult to find a culprit. An outbreak of the same stomach illnesses in Iowa and Nebraska has been

linked to salad mix served at local Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants and supplied by a Mexican farm. Recent cyclospora infections have sickened more than 400 people in 16 states. “We are unable to confirm a link to bagged salad because we have not had any restaurant clusters or grocery store clusters and our cases do not remember which brand of bagged salad they may have eaten,” Arnold said Monday. “It’s difficult to identify a source when there is only one case in each of the areas,” Arnold said. In Illinois, none of the

people infected has required hospitalization. The cases of cyclosporiasis were reported in Montgomery, Jo Daviess, Lake, Sangamon and McHenry counties. The most recently reported case is in McHenry County. That person got sick the third week of July. Illinois health officials believe the Sangamon County patient acquired the infection in Iowa and they have provided information on that case to Iowa health officials, Arnold said. The illness is caused by a microscopic parasite. People get sick when they consume contaminated food or water.

Health law delay draws GOP criticism Bulger lawyer

says underworld witnesses told lies

Cite lack of trust in Obama to implement laws By ERICA WERNER


The Associated Press

The Associated Press WASHINGTON – For many House conservatives, President Barack Obama’s decision to delay a central provision of his health care law has emerged as a major arguing point – not against that law but in opposition to immigration legislation In the weeks since the announcement that employers won’t have to provide health insurance for another year, complaints have increased among House Republicans that they can’t trust the Obama administration to implement any law they pass. That includes strict requirements for immigrants, tighter border security and genuine workplace hiring enforcement. That refrain is heard often from GOP lawmakers, most of whom now are home for a five-week summer recess that’s expected to fea-

Immigration reform supporters blocking a street Thursday on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. ture demonstrations around the country by advocates as well as opponents of a broad immigration overhaul. It’s one more daunting obstacle to House action after Senate passage in June of a sweeping bill to increase border security, remake rules for legal immigration and offer eventual citizenship to the estimated 11 million immigrants already in the U.S.

illegally. “We all take an oath to uphold the laws of this country and our Constitution, and that doesn’t mean you pick the laws you like and you ignore the laws you don’t,” said Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., who heads the conservative Republican Study Committee in the House. “And yet the president has shown a willingness to be

selective in how he enforces laws.” House Republicans also are skeptical of the comprehensive approach taken by the Senate, preferring to confront the immigration issue in bits and pieces. Many oppose legalization or citizenship for people who crossed the border illegally or overstayed their visas to be in this country.

Convicted mass murderer executed in Florida By TAMARA LUSH The Associated press STARKE, Fla. – A man convicted of murdering eight people in Miami-Dade County in the late 1970s was executed Monday night at the Florida State Prison, despite his lawyers’ pleas that he was too mentally ill to be put to death. John Errol Ferguson, 65, died at 6:17 p.m., following a lethal injection. The execution came less than two hours after the U.S. Supreme Court denied a final request for a stay. Before the execution, Ferguson made a brief statement

before 25 witnesses, including family members of the victims. “I just want everyone to know that I am the prince of God and will rise again,” he said calmly. At about three minutes into the procedure, he moved his head, strained his neck, moved his feet, put his head back down and closed his eyes. The entire execution took 16 minutes. About three dozen people protested across the street from the prison. Ferguson and two others were convicted of murdering

six people in 1977 during a robbery at a Carol City house used by marijuana dealers. Ferguson dressed as a utility worker to gain access and let his accomplices inside. Most of the victims were friends who happened to drop by the house while Ferguson and the other men were there. The victims were blindfolded and bound, and the encounter turned violent after a mask fell off one of Ferguson’s gang members and his face was spotted by a victim. The decision was made to kill all eight people in the house. Two survived. At the time, it was the worst mass

slaying ever in Miami-Dade County. Ferguson also was convicted of the 1978 murder of a 17-year-old couple, Brian Glenfeldt and Belinda Worley, from Hialeah. They were shot as Ferguson, dressed as a police officer, tried to rob them while they were parked at a lovers’ lane. Worley was raped. The randomness of the crime and the youth of the two victims stunned many in Miami. Ferguson confessed to killing “the two kids” after he was arrested in April 1978 for the earlier killings, court records show.

BOSTON – James “Whitey” Bulger’s lawyers tried to put the government itself on trial during closing arguments Monday, accusing federal prosecutors of making sweetheart deals with ruthless killers to put the reputed Boston crime boss behind bars. A prosecutor, meanwhile, summed up the government’s case by calling Bulger “one of the most vicious, violent and calculating criminals ever to walk the streets of Boston,” and urged the jury to convict him of charges that include 19 killings committed during the 1970s and ’80s. The jury is expected to begin deliberating Tuesday in the racketeering case against the 83-year-old Bulger, whose 16 years on the run embarrassed the FBI and exposed the bureau’s corrupt relationship with underworld informants. Bulger’s lawyers attacked the credibility of three key government witnesses: former hit man John Martorano, one-time Bulger protege Kevin Weeks and mobster Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi. Defense attorney J.W. Carney Jr. said the three former Bulger loyalists decided to “add a little Bulger to the mix” to almost every crime they were questioned about so they could get time shaved off their sentences. Carney argued that their testimony was bought and paid for by prosecutors. “The witnesses are selling their testimony to the government,” Carney said. “The currency that’s used here: How much freedom is the person going to get? The currency is the power of the government to keep someone locked up in

a cell, surrounded by four concrete walls topped by barbed wires.” Martorano and Weeks have completed their prison sentences and are free. Flemmi struck a deal to avoid the death penalty and is serving a life sentence. The defense went after Flemmi in particular, saying Flemmi, not Bulger, had a motive to kill the two women who are among the 19 murder victims. According to testimony, Flemmi had been sexually James abusing one of “Whitey” the women – his Bulger own stepdaughter – for years. “He killed his stepdaughter so she wouldn’t say what he had been doing to her,” Carney said. Bulger fled Boston in 1994 after being tipped off by a retired FBI agent about his indictment. He was one of the FBI’s most-wanted fugitives until he was captured with his longtime girlfriend in Santa Monica, Calif., in 2011. Prosecutors said Bulger was secretly working as an FBI informant while the bodies piled up – a claim his lawyers have strongly disputed. During the government’s closing argument, prosecutor Fred Wyshak recounted grisly details of the killings Bulger is accused of committing or orchestrating. Among the victims, he told the jury, were two men who were chained to chairs for hours, interrogated, then shot in the head, two women who were strangled, and two men who died in a hail of gunfire as they left a South Boston restaurant.

Ill. attorney general has not filed counterarguments which first helped bring about the 7th Circuit’s December decision, challenged the state’s blanket prohibition on carrying a loaded firearm in public – something the new law allows. “The fact that this time period for establishing the per-

mitting process is specified in the statute does not mean that it actually will take that amount of time for the state police to complete the process,” U.S. District Judge William Stiehl wrote last month in rejecting Shepard’s request.

who took over for Osama bin Laden after U.S. Navy SEALs killed the al-Qaida leader in May 2011, led the Obama administration to close diplomatic posts from Mauritania on Africa’s west coast through the Middle East to Bangladesh, east of India, and as far south as Madagascar. The U.S. did decide to reopen some posts Monday, including well-defended embassies in Kabul, Afghanistan, and Baghdad. Authorities in Yemen, meanwhile, released the names of 25 wanted al-Qaida suspects and said those people had been planning terrorist attacks targeting “foreign offices and organizations and Yemeni installations” in the capital Sanaa and other cities across the country. The Yemeni government also went on high alert Monday, stepping up security at government facilities and checkpoints. Officials in the U.S. wouldn’t say who intercepted the initial suspect communi-

The ASSOCIATED PRESS LILLINGTON, N.C. – Alonzo Lunsford has trouble getting out of chairs and warns his family to wake him gently. He and many other survivors of the 2009 shooting rampage that claimed the lives of 13 people at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas fight these demons daily. Now after years of delay, Lunsford and other survivors will come face to face with Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist who goes on trial in the attack starting today. After dismissing his attorneys, Hasan got permission to represent himself, putting him in the unusual position of asking questions of the very people he admits targeting. Hasan, a Muslim who argues he was protecting the

Taliban from American aggression, was shot by a civilian police officer and is now in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the abdomen down. Lunsford – a now-retired staff sergeant who was shot seven times – relishes the thought of staring at Hasan and telling him that he did not win. He carries two bullets with him – one in a small wooden box, the other in his back. “That man strikes no fear in my heart. He strikes no fear in my family. What he did to me was bad. But the biggest mistake that he made was I survived. So he will see me again,” he said as he sat on his porch in Lillington, rubbing the shiny slug between his fingers. “I will never show any fear in the face of my enemy,” he added. “Never.”

In passing the concealed carry measure, lawmakers narrowly beat a deadline set by the 7th Circuit, which in December ruled the state’s ban on public possession of handguns unconstitutional. Madigan’s office had argued that Shepard’s lawsuit,

cations – the CIA, the National Security Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency or one of the other intelligence agencies – that kicked off the sweeping pre-emptive closure of U.S. facilities. But an intelligence official said the controversial NSA programs that gather data on American phone calls or track Internet communications with suspected terrorists played no part in detecting the initial tip. That official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the spying publicly. A U.S. official familiar with the threat information said the decision to close the embassies was based on a broad swath of information, not just the intercept. The official said the U.S. has made clear in the past that AQAP makes its own operational decisions – that there are back-and-forth communications between al-Qaida leadership and AQAP, but that they operate independently. The official was not authorized to disclose the information to reporters and thus spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The proposal can be seen through Board Docs on the district’s website, While art and computer classes would be lengthened to fill a full semester, and health classes would be folded into the physical education curriculum, the proposal makes no room for general music. Mark Barwegen, an art teacher at Huntley Middle School, said the changes would be detrimental to students. “The art program will be cut down from every student having nine weeks, to only a small percentage being able to choose art for a semester,” Barwegen said. “But that percentage, if they choose to take band for example, would eliminate themselves from the option to choose art. ... They’re not going to have a chance to be exposed to some vital subject matter.”

Once the plot was detected, NSA analysts could use the programs that leaker Edward Snowden revealed to determine whom the plotters may have contacted around the world. Snowden revealed one program that collected telephone data such as the numbers called and the duration of calls on U.S. telephone networks. Another program searched global Internet usage. Therefore, if a new name was detected in the initial chatter, the name or phone number of that person could be run through the NSA databases to see whom he called or what websites or emails he visited. The surveillance is part of the continuing effort to track the spread of al-Qaida from its birthplace in Afghanistan and Pakistan to countries where governments and security forces are weaker and less welcoming to the U.S. or harder for American counterterrorist forces to penetrate – such as Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Mali and Libya – as well as Yemen, already home to al-Qaida’s most dangerous affiliate, al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, which is headed by al-Wahishi.

DEKALB AREA RESIDENTS CASH IN: Pictured above and protected by armed guards are the Overstuffed Money Bags containing 10 individual Vault Bags full of money that everyone is trying to get. That’s because each Vault Bag is known to contain over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins some dating back to the early 1900s.

State zip codes determine who gets free Silver coins Vault Bags loaded with U.S. Gov’t issued coins are up for grabs as thousands of U.S. residents stand to miss the deadline to claim the money; now any resident of Illinois who finds their zip code listed below gets to claim the bags of money for themselves and keep any valuable coins found inside by covering the Vault Bag fee within the next 2 days ILLINOIS - The phone lines are ringing off the hook. That’s because for the next 2 days Vault Bags containing valuable U.S. Gov’t issued coins are actually being handed over to DeKalb area residents who find their zip code listed in today’s publication. “Now that the bags of money are up for grabs Illinois residents are claiming as many as they can get before they’re all gone. That’s because after the Vault Bags were loaded with over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins the bags were sealed for good. But, we do know that some of the coins date clear back to the early 1900s, including: Silver, scarce, highly collectible, and currently circulating U.S. Gov’t issued nickels, dimes and quarter dollars, so there’s no telling what you’ll find until you sort through all the coins,” said Timothy J. Shissler, Chief Numismatist for the private World Reserve. The only thing residents need to do is find their zip code on the Distribution List printed in today’s publication. If their zip code is on the list, they need to immediately call the National Claim Hotline before the 2-day order deadline ends. Everyone who does is being given the 90% pure Silver Walking Liberty coin for free just by covering the fee for each Vault Bag loaded with over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins for only $99 each as long as they call before the deadline ends. Since this advertising announcement can’t stop dealers and collectors from hoarding any of the valuable coins they can get their hands on, the World Reserve had to set a strict limit of ten Vault Bags per resident. “Coin values always fluctuate and there are never any guarantees, but those who get in on this now will be the really smart ones. Just think what some of these coins could be worth someday,” said Shissler. Each Vault Bag is loaded in part with highly sought after collector coins dating clear back to the 1900s including a 90% pure Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar, an Eisenhower Dollar, some of the last ever minted U.S. Dollars, Kennedy Half Dollars, Silver Mercury Dimes, rarely seen Liberty ‘V’ Nickels, nearly 100 year old Buffalo Nickels and a big scoop of unsearched currently circulating U.S. Gov’t issued nickels, dimes and quarter dollars. “We’re bracing for all the calls because there are just hours left for residents to get the Silver Walking Liberty coin free,” he said. So, DeKalb area residents lucky enough to find their zip code listed in today’s publication need to immediately call the National Claim Hotlines before the 2-day deadline ends to get the Silver Walking Liberty coin free. If lines are busy keep trying, all calls will be answered. !




How to claim the bags of U.S. Gov’t issued coins: Read the important information listed below about claiming the Vault Bags. Then call the National Claim Hotline before the 2-day deadline ends at: 1-888-282-6742 Who gets to claim the bags of money: Thousands of U.S. residents stand to miss the deadline to claim the money. Now DeKalb area residents who find the first two digits of their zip code listed in today’s publication and beat the 2-day deadline get to claim the bags of money for themselves and keep all the U.S. Gov’t issued coins found inside. I keep calling and can’t get through: That’s because each Vault Bag is guaranteed to contain a free Silver Walking Liberty coin and just that one coin alone could be worth $15-$325 in collector value. So thousands of residents are calling to claim as many Vault Bags as they can get before they’re all gone. In fact, since the Vault Bag fee is just $ 99 everyone is claiming as many bags as they can before the deadline ends. So if lines are busy keep trying, all calls will be answered. How much are the Vault Bags worth: Coin values always fluctuate and there are never any guarantees, but here’s why Illinois residents are claiming as many Vault Bags as they can get before they’re all gone. After the Vault Bags were loaded with over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins including: Silver, scarce, highly collectible, and a big scoop of unsearched currently circulating U.S. Gov’t issued coins the bags were sealed for good. But we do know that some of the coins date back to the 1900s. That means there’s no telling what you’ll find until you sort through all the coins. So you better believe at just $ 99 the Vault Bag fee is a real steal since the free Silver Walking Liberty coin alone could be worth from $15 to $325 in collector value. Are the Silver Walking Liberty coins really Free: Yes. All DeKalb area residents who beat the 2-day deadline are instantly being awarded a Silver Walking Liberty coin issued by the U.S. Gov’t between 1916-1947 free with each Vault Bag they claim. Why is the Vault Bag fee so low: Because thousands of U.S. residents have missed the deadline to claim the money the World Reserve has re-allocated Vault Bags that will be scheduled to be sent out in the next 2 days. That means the money is up for grabs and now any resident who finds the first two digits of their zip code on the Distribution List below gets to claim the bags of money for themselves and keep all the U.S. Gov’t issued coins found inside. Each Vault Bag fee is set at $149 for residents who miss the 2 day deadline, but for those who beat the 2-day deadline the Vault Bag fee is just $ 99 as long as they call the National Claim Hotline before the deadline ends at: 1-888-282-6742.



phone lines are ringing off the hook. That’s because thousands of sealed Vault Bags each loaded with over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins some dating back to the early 1900s including: Silver, scarce, highly collectible, and currently circulating coins are being handed over to DeKalb area residents.

Groups partner to grow Genoa Redevelopment plans include library expansion, business incubator DAILY CHRONICLE For the first time in years, there soon will be major construction underway in downtown Genoa. Genoa Main Street Inc., the city, the Genoa Public Library and private businesses are all focused on changes that promise to keep downtown in the spotlight for some time to come. The new construction comes courtesy of the Genoa Public Library which purchased the lot next to its building at 232 W. Main St. They have demolished the structure on the site and will break ground in the spring for a major building expansion. “The new wing will allow us to meet the growing needs of Genoa residents while remaining downtown,” Jen Barton, library director said in a news release. “In addition to housing more books and resources for library users, the library is an important part of the downtown business community, generating foot traffic and space for activities and meetings.” Genoa Main Street Inc. plans to open another business incubator, Genoa Springboard 3. It will be on Main Street in downtown Genoa. While still in the planning stage, interested entrepreneurs are encouraged to contact the organization to begin the application process. Start-up businesses, homebased businesses ready to move into their own space and out-of-town businesses

Genoa’s downtown was spruced up by city workers who planted trees, installed planters and benches and hung light-pole flower baskets. Downtown Genoa also is welcoming new businesses, a major library expansion and a third business incubator. For information, contact Genoa Main Street Inc. at or 815-784-6961. looking for a Genoa location are eligible to apply. Springboard tenants benefit from a quality location at an affordable price, shared costs and professional guidance from a task force of experts in a variety of fields. “The Genoa Springboard program is a great economic

development tool for downtown,” Mim Evans, Genoa Main Street executive director said in the release. “Each of our incubators gives new businesses a better chance of success, brings an underutilized building back to life, and attracts additional businesses to Genoa that fill other avail-

able space.” Some new businesses are not waiting for the incubator to open. A pharmacy returns to downtown later this summer. Parag Manier is renovating the space at 228 W. Main St., to house Genoa Pharmacy. Ted and MaryAnn Heck have opened The Corner Thrift Store at 101 W. Main St. The shop carries affordable antiques as well as Ted’s handcrafted furniture. “The City of Genoa is also investing in downtown,” Linda Underwood, Genoa Main Street president said in the release. “They have installed new benches, planters, lightpole flower baskets and street trees. The teamwork of Genoa Main Street, Genoa Garden Club and the City has downtown looking great!” “Genoa Main Street was started by concerned downtown business owners and the Chamber of Commerce in 1996,” Underwood said in the release. “Since then we have worked hard to make downtown a great place to live, work, or visit. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization funded by donations from the business community and local residents. Thanks to their strong support, we are looking forward to continuing to promote downtown as the economic and social center of the community.” For information on Genoa Main Street Inc., downtown business opportunities or upcoming events, visit

Chamber celebrates recent ribbon cuttings On July 18, DeKalb Chamber of Commerce staff, ambassadors and board members cut the ribbon at the new KishHealth Laboratories at 2111 Midlands Court, Suite 202, Sycamore. For information, visit www.kishhospital. org or call 815-7564891. Walk-in service is available at this location.

Government relations Chambers represent the viewpoints of their members in front of governments and advocate for their business interests when necessary. Your dues support the chamber’s efforts on your behalf to make your community a better place to do business. This alone is a reason to become a member! If you’re interested in getting more involved, most chambers have a Business Advocacy or Governmental Affairs Committee that members can join. Be sure to attend chamber forums and events featuring political candidates and elected officials. You’ll often have an opportunity to meet them, ask questions, and perhaps share your opinion about important decisions that impact your business.

For many of us, it’s important to be visible. Chambers sponsor social events and networking groups that are designed for members to meet and do business together. If your business depends on local-business generation, this is an opportunity that you shouldn’t pass up. Even if your customer base is not local, the connections you make can be an invaluable source of local goods and services for your business needs. Also, check out your Chamber’s leads groups and ambassador committees if you’d like to have a built-in opportunity to welcome and meet new members.

On July 16, owner Kim Engstrom and DeKalb Chamber ambassadors and staff, cut the ribbon at the new location of Professional Drug Testing Services at 145 S. Sacramento St., Sycamore. For information, call at 815-991-5943 or visit www.prodrugtesting. com. LEFT: On July 25, DeKalb Chamber of Commerce staff, ambassadors and board members cut the ribbon with the Solid Construction crew at Somerset Farms in Sycamore. Somerset Farms is a new 55-and-older retirement community on Bethany Road between Peace Road and Somonauk Street. For information, call 815-751-3159.

Are you a member of your local Chamber of Commerce? If so, are you getting your money’s worth? If not, what are you missing out on? Chambers exist to serve members and help them to be more successful. The chamber is businesspeople collaborating to shape today’s business environment and our community’s future. We are a nonprofit, member-based organization. We are supported by businesses that want to invest in their community. The investment is paid annually and may be based on the size of the business. Dues are tax-deductible as a business expense. The power of the Sycamore Chamber lies in the synergy of the business leaders who generate and conduct business daily with more than 500 member companies. Most businesses benefit from membership, and small business owners often benefit dramatically from the power of joining together with their peers. Here are some of the things that local chambers do for the business community, along with a few suggestions for getting the most from your membership.

Advertising When you’re a member, you’ll be listed in the chamber directory, but your opportunities for promoting your business don’t stop there. Chambers have websites, newsletters, newspapers, brochures and more. They sell advertising in most


of these. The costs may be modest, and if your target market includes other Chamber members, the return on investment can be fantastic.

Education Many chambers really shine in this department. Training yourself and your staff can be expensive, but it’s important to keep up with new developments and continue improving everyone’s business skills. Chambers collaborate with other educational institutions, like Kishwaukee College and Northern Illinois University. They offer classes, workshops, and seminars, taught by member professionals, at a low cost to members. These professionals go out of their way to do a great job because their community reputation is at stake. Recent topics include social media training, human resource issues, patents and trademarks, OSHA regulations, credit card processing do’s and don’ts, tax law changes and more.

Referrals Businesses and residents who are new to a community frequently call the local chamber of commerce for referrals for the goods and services they need. Guess what? If you’re not a member, Chamber staff can’t refer you. Take the time to get to know the staff of your local Chamber, and make sure that they have the information they need to send business your way.

Committee membership Volunteering to serve on a chamber committee that fits your interests or expertise creates leadership opportunities, helps you become better known in the community, and can help position you as an expert in your field. In addition to the board of directors, business advocacy, ambassador and leads groups, many chambers have education committees, and if you’re interested in your local schools, many chambers are forming partnerships with the local educational institutions to preserve the strength of our greatest economic resource, our children and our future workforce. Every chamber is different, and there may be other opportunities that I haven’t mentioned here. If you’re not already a member, I encourage you to find out more. To those of you who are already a member of your local Chamber, I applaud you. Your expertise, energy, creativity, and involvement will continue to shape today’s business environment and our future. Thank you for your investment.

Make city better, not bigger

Clay Campbell

Sherre Perkins



To the Editor: I don’t know why some people in our local government are so obsessed with building more housing developments, when our inner city of DeKalb is falling to pieces. How many small restaurants in town have opened, just to end up closing a few months later? DeKalb can’t even keep three movie theaters open. Parts of the NIU area looks like a slum. Houses all over the city that are now bank owned, are totally dilapidated. A good example of one stands on the corner of Taylor Street and Maplewood Avenue. Why don’t we concentrate on keeping DeKalb the nice, quaint, college town most of us have loved in the past, and leave our prime farmland to the farmers? Make DeKalb better, not bigger.

Dems own Obamacare and its rising political costs Nothing is free in politics, but there is some question when you pay the price. That’s been a saying of mine for many years, though I may have unconsciously plagiarized it from someone else. I think it applies to Obamacare. My American Enterprise Institute colleague Norman Ornstein has been shellacking Republicans for trying to undercut the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. He calls it “simply unacceptable, even contemptible.” He points out that Republicans in the past haven’t tried to undercut or derail major legislation of this sort. That’s correct, as a matter of history. You won’t find any concerted drive to repeal and replace Social Security after it was enacted in 1935 or Medicare after it was passed in 1965. In contrast, Republicans proclaim they want to repeal and replace Obamacare. They don’t agree on tactics. Some Republicans want to vote to defund Obamacare spending while continuing to fund the government otherwise. Others argue that would be a futile gesture and politically damaging. The two sides have taken to calling each other names – the suicide caucus and the surrender caucus. But both want to get rid of Obamacare because they think it’s bad for the country. The so-called surrender caucus is surely correct in predicting that President Barack Obama and the Democratic-majority Senate will never allow the defunding of Obamacare. The so-called suicide caucus is right to point out that government shutdowns are not fatal to congressional Republicans, who maintained their congressional majorities after the shutdowns in the Clinton years.

Last week, the Associated Press released a report documenting the extent to which joblessness, poverty and reliance on welfare still affect millions of Americans. The article quotes a number of studies, and as one might expect, each is full of depressing statistics. Age groups, race groups, geographic groups – all are examined in terms of how economic insecurities and disadvantages impact them. Nowhere, however, are any solutions proposed. It has been almost 50 years since President Lyndon Johnson declared “war on poverty.” After spending billions of dollars on well-intentioned federal programs, however, victory has proven to be elusive. There have been some successes, of course. And nobody begrudges efforts to help the vulnerable among us. Still, it is discouraging that the richest and most innovative nation in the world hasn’t enjoyed greater success in addressing the root causes of poverty. Some claim that closing the gap between the rich and poor is simply a matter of taking money from the former and giving it to the latter. History has shown this solution to be doomed to failure, however, for nations that went down this path eventually impoverished everyone. The problem is that reducing financial incentives for growth also reduces growth itself, and finally everyone is reduced to squabbling over what is left. Instead of seeking false solutions, everyone must realize that avoiding poverty requires making good personal decisions. And equally, we need to understand that the outcomes of bad decisions are more devastating than ever before. This is especially true for young people. Toward this end, a well-known social commentator once set forth three rules for avoiding poverty: • Graduate from high school. • Don’t have a baby until you are married • Don’t marry while you are a teenager. For people who obey these rules, poverty is rare. These three rules are simple, but they are not easy. In far too many cases they are ignored, and the resulting social and financial consequences are proving to be enormous. Especially dispiriting is the lost potential of so many young people, who may not even understand the opportunities that are bypassing them. For these reasons, we must never give up trying to help people avoid poverty. The Grand Island (Neb.) Independent


Suspected Nazi war criminals must be pursued An Associated Press investigation unveiled this week found a significant number of people who are suspected Nazi war criminals living in the U.S. despite being ordered to leave the country will almost certainly spark complaints related to why we continue such investigations, so many decades after the crimes took place. Many, perhaps most, of the so-called big name Nazi decision makers are either confirmed or strongly suspected to be dead. The worst of the worst were executed after the war while others were tracked down and killed, or executed after public trials, in the years that followed. Still others drew lengthy prison sentences with many of them dying behind bars. What we’re left with now, for the most part, are the mid- to low-level suspects, the boots-on-the-ground guys who are often accused of doing the actual killing. Many of these people, who are now in their 80s or 90s, have, in fact, been identified, have undergone thorough evaluations and ultimately ordered for deportation. Here’s where the problems start: The U.S., which cannot prosecute them because the crimes were not committed on U.S. soil, often cannot find a country willing to take them. The case of John Kalymon, who lives in Troy, Mich., seems fairly typical. According to the AP report, Kalymon, 92, remains in Michigan despite exhausting appeals earlier this year in a process that took nine years. Prosecutors said Kalymon, who was born in Poland, was a member of the Nazi-sponsored Ukrainian Auxiliary Police in Lviv, which rounded up Jews and imprisoned them. Prosecutors said Kalymon also shot Jews. Kalymon, who suffers from dementia and cancer, has denied wrongdoing. AP stated that in Poland, authorities said an investigation of Kalymon was closed in January because authorities couldn’t definitively tie him to crimes committed in 1942. It’s unclear what country, if any, will take Kalymon, or the others who are under deportation orders. All may ultimately live out their years here in the U.S. without standing trial. And while that’s troubling, we still believe the U.S. should continue to pursue these cases. The crimes these people are suspected of were so evil, so hideous, that the world can never forget.

Central Michigan U. soccer player dies MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. – One of three Central Michigan University soccer players who were hurt in a weekend rollover crash has died, the school said Monday. Josie Seebeck, a 19-year-old sophomore from Montgomery, Ala., died Sunday night, the university’s athletic department said in a statement. Seebeck, a midfielder on the team, and two other students who play for the Mount Pleasant school, were hurt when their vehicle crashed and rolled over Friday on Interstate 69 near Lansing. “This is a tragic loss for our family and for the Central Michigan family,” Seebeck’s family said in a statement released through the school. “She was a beautiful girl who we loved very much and still love very much. “This has left a big hole in our family and we are touched by all the people who have reached out to us over the past few days. She was a wonderful, selfless person and we will miss her very much. We want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers.” One of the injured students remained hospitalized Monday, while the other was discharged from a hospital Saturday. The school didn’t release the names of the injured students or specify whether they play for the men’s or women’s teams. Authorities were investigating the crash. Athletics director Dave Heeke said that it’s “a tough, tragic time for our soccer student-athletes and the entire CMU Chippewa family.” Grief counselors were on hand to support the team, fellow students, faculty and staff. – Wire report

Head coach Rod Carey walks during the first practice of the season Monday at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb. By STEVE NITZ DeKALB – Part of the reason Rod Carey was named Northern Illinois’ 22nd head coach Dec. 2 is because former NIU athletic director Jeff Compher thought he would bring consistency and stability to the program. Monday afternoon, Carey ran his first preseason practice at Huskie Stadium. A lot has changed since last August, with Carey being just one example. Senior quarterback Jordan Lynch, an unknown player national-

At each of NIU’s five home games this year, the Orange Bowl banner will hang near the Yordon Center. But to the players, the transition from one head coach to another has gone as smooth as they could have hoped. There were minor changes to

Monday’s practice, and a number of new faces with the freshman class coming in, but Monday wasn’t much different from when NIU took the field for the first time a season ago. “I can’t say a lot has changed. The program, we’re going to work hard regardless,” junior safety Dechane

Durante said. “... The motto is still hard work, we still come out and do the same thing every day. Preparation’s the same. It’s just new faces and new positions. “As far as players, we still come out here and prepare the same way.” To Durante, there couldn’t have been a better change when it came to the head coach. Dave Doeren, who went 23-4 in two seasons, left for N.C. State after the team’s Mid-American Conference Championship win, and Carey, who had been NIU’s offensive coordinator, stepped right in.

Linebacker Lance Briggs works out at Bears training camp July 27 in Bourbonnais.

Old 55 says defense still the difference HubArkush. com is online Check it out, bookmark it and make it your homepage for Bears coverage going forward. Shaw Media’s Bears coverage has reached a new level and we hope you enjoy it. We’ll be on top of every minute of training camp and the upcoming season on your new 24/7 home for Bears football, led by one of the most trusted names in both Bears and pro football coverage.

VIEWS Hub Arkush Long before the double nickels belonged to Lance Briggs, another Bears Pro Bowl linebacker wore the number 55, “Mama’s Boy” Otis Wilson. Unlike Briggs, Wilson boasts a Super Bowl title on his resume, and he believes the current 55 and his defensive teammates are the key to the Bears winning another one. The old 55 has been catching up with these new Bears quite a bit lately, watching their Fan Night practice Saturday at Soldier Field and then joining them at their next practice back in Bourbonnais.

He told me he’s heard a lot of good things about new coach Marc Trestman from Hall of Famer Steve Young, among others, as an excellent offensive minded coach but that he’s always believed “offenses win games, but defenses win championships.” Wilson knows how important the offense has become around the league. Looking at the challenge Trestman faces, Wilson said, “Lovie [Smith] had a real hold on these guys and it was almost like a father-son relationship. Now a lot of guys are older and change is hard so I’m just hoping they put some good offense out there [to help the defense].”

CHICAGO – Alex Rodriguez blooped a single in his first at-bat of the season hours after being hit with a long suspension, but that was it for the embattled slugger as the White Sox snapped a 10-game losing streak with an 8-1 win Monday night over the New York Yankees. Rodriguez was suspended through 2014 by Major League Baseball in the Biogenesis case, a punishment he is appealing. “There’s nothing about it that’s been easy,” Rodriguez said. “All of it has been challenging. I’m sure there’s been mistakes made along the way. We’re here now. I’m a human being. I’ve had two hip surgeries. I’ve had two knee surgeries. I’m fighting for my life. I have to defend myself. If

I don’t defend myself, no one else will. There’s a process. I’m happy with the process. In due time, hopefully whatever happens, happens.” The Yankees are hoping something good happens with him on the field. They’re out of playoff position and desperate for power, especially their third basemen – the players they’ve had playing that spot this season had a combined 32 RBIs, fewest in the majors according to STATS, and were hitting .215 with four homers. That clearly was the biggest story on a day when New York’s Derek Jeter went back on the disabled list because of a strained right calf and Andy Pettitte (7-9) got knocked out early. Alex Rios drove in four runs, Alexei Ramirez added four hits and Jose Quintana (6-3) pitched into the seventh for the Sox.

ple touches), and it’s clear how challenging things can be in one-on-one situations. “We also feel challenged, so if Brandon makes a great play, I have to make one, it’s my turn. And Alshon’s the same way,” Martellus Bennett said. “So you got three big guys out there not only competing against the defense, we try to out-do each other.” The Bears’ defensive backs look at their new situation as a positive. Tillman has had success against some big, top-tier receivers, such as the Detroit Lions’ Calvin Johnson, but now every defensive back is getting daily work covering players bigger than them. Bennett’s arrival is key. The Bears weren’t able to get the same looks with tight end Kellen Davis last season. The Bears will face some big receivers and tight ends – the Cincinnati Bengals’ A.J. Green (6-4, 207) and New Orleans Saints’ Jimmy Graham (6-7, 265 pounds), for example – early this season. “Having it in practice is the best thing ever because you know what you’re getting every day,” Wright said. “We definitely have size at every position. “Every team has big guys, [but] it’s not like a shocker [because] we go against it every day in practice. We know we’ll already be prepared for it.”

Everyone knows how critical Jay Cutler will be to the success of this team. But looking at this Bears defense and how crucial it is to the Bears’ Super Bowl hopes, Wilson believes its new quarterback, Lance Briggs, and how he replaces Brian Urlacher could be the biggest key to the Bears season. “It’s going to be very hard for Lance because you have to get a lot more into the gameplan, you have to really understand the schemes of what you’re running and what the offense is running [against you],” Wilson said. “I was fortunate enough that I had a coach on the field, [Mike] Singletary and he was doing that and he took a lot of the pressure off of people. Now Briggs has to become a thinker as opposed to a player and that can hurt you a little bit, but I think they’ll simplify the plan, try and let him attack people and he should be fine.” As for the end of the Urlacher era, Wilson believes it’s all about the money. “This is a funny business where you always want to go out on your own terms but 90 percent of the time it doesn’t happen because of the money,” Wilson said. “It’s hard to replace Brian, not just his talent but the aura of him, having his presence on the field. I’m waiting to see how this defense reacts,” he said. After eight seasons with the Bears, Wilson missed the 1988 season because of injury and then tried to play with the Raiders in ’89. He played in one game before he was forced to retire. He was younger than Briggs, Julius Peppers and Charles Tillman are now when he was forced to hang up his pads. Does he worry about what Father Time might do to this defense? “Oh there’s no question about it, it can go quickly, especially in this physical game. Peppers, Tillman and Lance are the heart and soul of this team and with the new regime it’s tough,” Wilson said. “Physically now you want your body to act like a 25 - year old and we know that’s not going to happen. You’re more susceptible to injury and the more you work out, the more wear and tear. ...” Still, Wilson is really excited about the season and the new regime. While there is plenty to worry about, he likes what he sees in new defensive coordinator Mel Tucker trying to do with “his guys” and he believes Trestman can give the defense the support it needs to win another title. After all he says “One Championship every 25 or 30 years shouldn’t be enough, it isn’t that hard to do. It’s time we win another one.”

Defiant A-Rod gets 211game ban, will appeal case NEW YORK – Alex Rodriguez was suspended through 2014 and All-Stars Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta and Everth Cabrera were banned 50 games apiece Monday when Major League Baseball disciplined 13 players for their relationship to Biogenesis of America, a Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. The harshest penalty was reserved for Rodriguez, the New York Yankees slugger, a threetime Most Valuable Player and baseball’s highest-paid star. He said he will appeal his suspension, which covers 211 games, by Thursday’s deadline. And since arbitrator Fredric Horowitz isn’t expected to rule until November or December at the earliest, Rodriguez was free to make his season debut Monday night and play the rest of this year.

Off-field issues for Manziel cloud Texas A&M camp COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Coach Kevin Sumlin on Monday said he would not speculate when asked if Johnny Manziel will be his starter on Aug. 31 against Rice following an ESPN report that the NCAA is investigating whether the Heisman Trophy winner was paid for signing hundreds of autographs last January. “There’s a lot of people involved in that decision,” Sumlin said without being specific. If Manziel was paid for his autograph on memorabilia, it could potentially violate NCAA amateurism rules and put his eligibility in question a year after his jaw-dropping performance on the field made him the first freshman to win the Heisman as college football’s top player.

31 Turkish athletes suspended for doping ANKARA, Turkey – In the latest scandal affecting Turkish track and field during Istanbul’s bid to host the 2020 Olympics, 31 athletes have been suspended for two years each for doping violations. The Turkish Athletics Federation announced the sanctions Monday, including that of hammer thrower Esref Apak, the 2004 Olympic silver medalist. His case had been announced in June. The bans follow five days after the IAAF confirmed that nine Turkish athletes, including two teenagers, got two-year bans for using anabolic steroids. – Wire reports

Bears safety Chris Conte misses a throw Thursday during training campin Bourbonnais.

Bears’ defensive backs dealing with tall receivers By ADAM L. JAHNS Chicago Sun-Times BOURBONNAIS – The Bears’ defensive backs are under attack. They’re dealing with receivers’ long, outstretched arms. Their agility and quickness to box out. Their leaping ability and speed. They’re getting a good idea during training camp of what the Bears’ new-look offense wants to do to opponents: get after them relentlessly with three big receivers in Brandon Marshall (6-4, 230 pounds) and Alshon Jeffery (6-3, 216) and tight end Martellus Bennett (6-6, 265). Few teams can throw that many big and mobile targets at a defense at one time. Or as veteran defensive back Kelvin Hayden put it, “We’ve got some trees out there.” And those “trees” play with an edge, an aggressive bravado that can be infuriating. Take all the scrums with Bennett last week as an example. “[Bennett’s] a guy that’s maybe 6-4, 6-5. Me being 5-11, there’s a disadvantage right there,” said Hayden, who tussled with Bennett last week. “There’s going to be mismatches come this season.” Coach Marc Trestman calls his offense one “that’s got to get the right matchups.” Numerous formations, personnel groupings and plenty of motion will be used to get that for Marshall, Jeffery and Bennett. Trestman will force nickel backs, safeties and linebackers to guard them.

“If I’m on the other side of the ball, it’s more about technique than anything else,” Trestman said. “Your techniques have to be perfect to cover a guy like that, and then it’s about a contested throw, getting a hand in and running through him and getting the things done that you have to do fundamentally to get it done.” The secondary is arguably the Bears’ biggest strength on defense. There are concerns about the depth of the defensive line, and Lance Briggs is the only starting linebacker returning. But the secondary returns Pro Bowl cornerbacks Tim Jennings and Charles Tillman, solid young safeties Chris Conte and Major Wright and veteran Hayden at nickel back. That’s why what’s happening at training camp is so interesting. Marshall’s arrival last season, the freeagent signing of Bennett, the continuous improvement of Jeffery and Trestman’s system have made the battles in the secondary the best to watch. The Bears’ defense dominated early in camp, but the offense gradually has caught up, making “explosive plays,” as Trestman says, with Bennett, Marshall and Jeffery. “We’ve got some big dudes out there [with] ‘B’ and Alshon and Martellus in there,” quarterback Jay Cutler said. “You just kind of have to put it up high.” Add in speedy receiver Earl Bennett when he’s healthy and running back Matt Forte (who will get am-


Trestman pleased with team after rest day By KEVIN FISHBAIN BOURBONNAIS – Mother Nature forced the Bears to call audibles for the second practice in four days, but coach Marc Trestman was pleased with how things went coming off a rest day. “I thought the players did a good job today of handling change again and handling the off day,” Trestman told reporters in the rain. “We were better today in practice after an off day than we were a week ago after the off day. The energy was very good.” The Bears pushed Monday’s practice up four hours with inclement weather expected to hit in the afternoon, but rain soaked the final minutes of practice in front of a small crowd. In the first set of team drills of practice, one of the stars of camp, cornerback Isaiah Frey, picked off a Jay Cutler pass intended for Martellus Bennett, who had slipped on the play. “He made a play. Whether another player fell down or not he made another play today,”

Trestman said about the 2012 sixth-round pick. “He’s shown up each and every day and certainly, with Kelvin [Hayden] down now and being week to week, his ability to play nickel and play the corner and be part of the mix in finding the best group of DBs and corners that we can, it’s going to be very important.”

Blind Side return: Left tackle Jermon Bushrod returned to full pads. He only participated in team drills, and Trestman said Bushrod will have to be at 100 percent to play Friday in Carolina. “It’s about easing myself back in and trying to get myself into shape like I was before,” Bushrod said. “It’s just about taking it one day at a time.” Infirmary report: Julius Peppers took a rest day Monday – he experienced tightness in his hamstring Saturday. Earl Bennett sat out for “rest and evaluation,” as Trestman said, for a possible concus-

Carey still looking for first win


Williams switches to wide receiver By STEVE NITZ One down, 23 to go. Northern Illinois held its first practice of fall camp Monday afternoon at Huskie Stadium. The Huskies will hold a total of 24 workouts between Monday and Aug. 24. NIU practiced in jerseys and helmets Monday, and the Huskies won’t be in full pads until Friday. Here are a few tidbits from the team’s first August workout: • Redshirt-freshman Matt Williams, who was a quarterback last season, is now at wide receiver. He’s athletic, and played some wideout at Geneva High School, so he could be a good fit there. This means the backup QB competition will be between sophomore Matt McIntosh and redshirt-freshman Drew Hare. • Freshman Aregeros

Turner was previously listed as a running back on NIU’s roster, but was listed as a wide receiver on the fall camp roster given to the media Monday. That’s where he took all his reps as well. • Tyler Loos is healthy after missing the final three games of last season with a broken tibia. He took some reps with the first team offensive line. • Freshman running back Jordan Huff took some second-team reps Monday. He’s a guy I could see playing as a true freshman. With Akeem Daniels out early on, guys like him will have an increased workload at practice. • After seeing the new scoreboard up close, it looks really nice. The ribbon boards on each side of the stadium also look completed, and the once-white goal posts are now a neon-yellowish color.

Front row from left: Rick Johnson, Ted Strack, Darin Forbes, Luke Johnson, Klint Mathey, Joe Jordan. Not pictured: Kyle Landes, Co Oprins. By DAILY CHRONICLE STAFF The DeKalb/Sycamore Church Softball League finished their summer season as 14 teams had been trimmed to two in the championship game. The championship game featured Sycamore St. Mary and Bethel Assembly, a repeat of 1980 when both teams reached the championship game for the first time and Ted Strack led Sycamore St.


Along with the Bears first preseason game comes the season's first game release and "unofficial" depth chart. Unofficial is the operative word but still, it represents how they should line up at Carolina, and it does have changes from the last offseason chart. Most notably Eben Britton is now the No. 2 right tackle competing with J'Marcus Webb. He was listed at

Mary to a win over Bethel Assembly and Roy Harbecke Sr. More than 30 years later, Strack repeated his performance, picking up the win in a 9-4 win. David Harbecke, Roy’s grandson, took the loss for Bethel Assembly. The title was St. Mary’s fifth overall, but its first since 1995. In the consolation game, Hope Community and Christ Community I played to a near standstill through five

innings, with Christ Community I taking a 5-4 lead in the bottom of the fifth. But Hope pushed across five runs in the sixth, including a bases-loaded triple by Jake Gordon and won, 14-7. Dale McMillan picked up the win, throwing four innings. Keith Miller and Cody Varga each went 3 for 3 to support Hope offensively. Kevin Nelson took the loss and Lance Sandy went 2 for 3 with two triples for Christ Community I.

guard during OTA's and minicamp. Britton played both positions in Jacksonville but was definitely more effective at tackle. The depth chart also lists James Brown and Kyle Long as co-starters at right guard even though Brown has commanded more first team reps. Joe Anderson and Earl Bennett are listed as the No. 2 receivers behind Brandon Marshall and

Alshon Jeffrey, and ahead of Devin Aromashodu, Marquess Wilson and Eric Weems. As reported here last week, Anderson is almost a lock for a roster spot. B randon Hardin and Tom Zbikowski are the third and fourth strong safeties behind Anthony Walters and Craig Steltz, and both are long shots to survive the final cut.



“I think the transition to coach Carey was the best transition we could’ve had,” Durante said. “Somebody who’s a familiar face being here. So it definitely helped the transition.” Carey is still looking for his first win, as he has a career record of 0-1 after losing 31-10 to Florida State in the Orange Bowl on New Year’s Day. Last winter Carey wanted to turn the page, and didn’t even want his players wearing Orange Bowl gear to workouts. Right now, everyone’s been focusing on the season opener, which, according to offensive tackle Tyler Loos, hasn’t been too hard. “Our main focus is Iowa, and that’s all that matters right now is to be 1-0,” Loos said.

Daily Chronicle /

Petty: ‘It’s not our job to ask the fluff’ CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Kyle Petty, the driver-turned-analyst with the unfiltered opinions, has angered someone new. Petty didn’t mean to make Denny Hamlin mad with his televised comments before Sunday’s race at Pocono. Hamlin, who saw the segment on Speed, tweeted before the race “Kyle Petty is a moron,” and was still venting about Petty after crashing out 14 laps into the race. Turns out, Hamlin had every right to be upset. Petty admitted to The Associated Press on Monday he had misinterpreted previous statements made by Hamlin, and the opinion Petty presented pre-race about Hamlin was incorrect. “If you are going to run your mouth, if you are going to dish it out, you gotta take it, and the bone of contention here is that Denny is 100 percent right,” Petty said. “I can take it, I can say that I’m wrong and that I misinterpreted what Denny said.” Actually, that’s not the bone of contention at all. The issue at hand is that Petty has found his voice to be the loudest and most polarizing in a sport filled with NASCAR “partners” often too timid to ruffle any feathers. Nobody wants to land on the wrong side of a driver, a crew chief, a team owner or NASCAR itself. And with the hours upon hours of programming to fill, it’s sometimes just easier to stay on good terms. That’s not who Petty is, and he’ll never play that game. He found himself in the news – breaking journalism rule No. 1 – last month when he said Danica Patrick was a marketing machine who would never be a successful driver. It’s not the first time he’s referred to NASCAR’s darling as such, and it won’t be the last. For some reason, it was news – well, who are we kidding? All things Danica are news. But that’s beside the point. Petty was under attack for speaking his opinion.

IN THE PITS Jenna Fryer “Sometimes I find myself the lone dissenting voice in this sea of political correctness, and I don’t think everything has to be politically correct. Facts are facts, and honestly, it’s just my opinion,” he said. “I don’t think that any of us – me, Kyle Petty, media, the drivers, NASCAR, track owners, we aren’t all right all the time. We don’t all live in a utopian society where everything is perfect. There are things that need to be examined, that need to be called out, and I seem to be the only one that says it. That’s the only way I’ve always been. “It’s just my opinion. It’s just my question. Its questions that have to be asked. Just as it’s their job to go out and drive the race car and do what they do, it’s not our job to ask if they went fishing or went to the Bahamas and just ask the fluff. It’s our responsibility to inform the fan base.” Petty believes his 53 years of knowledge and hands-on experience gives him the right to express his opinion and be a voice for the fans. He’s part of NASCAR royalty; the son of seven-time champion Richard Petty and grandson of three-time champion Lee Petty. Both are in the Hall of Fame and his uncle, Maurice Petty, will be inducted into the Hall of Fame next year. So Kyle Petty was born into a racing family, grew up in the garage area, and gravitated into the business. He worked on cars, raced them, and moved into ownership with Petty Enterprises. His oldest son, Adam, followed him into the business, too, until his 2000 death in an accident at New Hampshire. Sure, Kyle Petty’s driving record wasn’t spectacular. But 829 Sprint Cup starts over 30 seasons means the guy has seen his fair share of stuff and

He doesn’t think he’s wrong about what he said about Patrick, although he’s willing to let facts change his mind. What he’s found in the world of racing, particularly in this new age of Twitter, is there’s no such thing as a civil discussion. After his comments about Patrick went mainstream, Petty said he was flooded with 250 tweets an hour for a full day. He went through them all, waiting for a reasonable argument, but only found personal attacks. “After a full day, it was A. I have a ponytail; B. I’m a never was; C. I suck; D. I rode my dad’s coattails – none of which is a valid argument,” Petty said. “You can change my opinion if you have a valid argument. You can’t just go junior high and go personal.” Which is why Petty, who does indeed have a ponytail, doesn’t feel badly about his comments about Hamlin on Sunday. Petty essentially said that Hamlin had gotten too brash in his comments about being the

face of Joe Gibbs Racing, and should probably hang it up for the rest of the season and focus on healing his ailing back. What Hamlin had actually said was that he was the face of sponsor Fed-Ex and the No. 11 team. Hamlin talked about Petty after his accident – because he was asked by a reporter, not because he was dwelling on Petty –and was still miffed. “My beef with Kyle is he has a lot of opinions about a lot of drivers, but he never once talked to any of them,” Hamlin said. “To be an analyst you’ve got to be in the trenches to find out the stories.” Petty would have reached out to Hamlin or apologized for making a mistake, but then came the “moron” tweet. “Denny’s argument was a typical Twitter argument, he calls me a moron and then he goes personal,” Petty said. “So I’m just not going to acknowledge it.” It’s unlikely it’s the last driver disagreement Petty will have this year. After that, who knows? Speed flips to Fox Sports 1 later this month, and nobody knows what will happen to the bulk of the NASCAR programming beyond this season. Petty joked Monday “everybody’s dream may come true and I may be watching races on my couch, or from a tiki bar in the Bahamas.” But that shouldn’t be anybody’s dream. Petty’s opinions may not be popular or politically correct. But they are his; he believes in them and is not afraid to shout them from a trackside television set or inside the Hall of Fame voting room, where he’s influenced many a vote with his impassioned speeches. Petty isn’t afraid to admit when he’s wrong, but he’s the equivalent of a single car team in a sport full of heavily funded big dogs, and he’s not afraid to make waves.

Help is plentiful for vets going back to school Dear Abby: This letter is for “Torn in Milford, Conn.” (May 16). I returned to college after 20 years of active duty and know firsthand how difficult the transition can be. Most universities have a veterans’ service office where he might be able to connect with students with similar backgrounds and experiences to his. There should also be chapters of the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars where he can meet others. I was fortunate that the university I attended (at age 45) had a dorm floor specifically for “nontraditional” students like me. In classes, I was able to make friends because my unique experiences enabled me to connect to the

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips material in ways younger students could not, and by sharing those connections, people got to know me. Starting over – starting something new – is always difficult, but no education is ever wasted. If he does want to explore a career in security, “Torn” should take a part-time job while attending school to help cover expenses; universities always need highly skilled employees, and university towns are filled with venues that require such skills. That being said, a diploma will get him further in his future.

– Nontraditional Student, Ekalaka, Mont.

Dear Nontraditional Student: Thank you for sharing your personal experience. Your support and encouragement for “Torn” to complete his college education was endorsed by many other vets and college professors, who find vets to be great students: Dear Abby: I’m concerned that there may be more going on with “Torn” than just that he/she doesn’t fit in with peers in school. Being a combat vet and feeling disconnected from peers or having a desire to return to what they knew before (security work) is a sign of PTSD. Missing work is often “code” for survivor’s guilt. (“If I could go back and make it right, perhaps

my buddy would be here, or I would be with my buddy.”) There are services available for vets suffering from PTSD if they recognize the need to reach out for them. Also, if this vet is using his/ her educational benefits, then the chances of there being a training plan to help in readjustment is likely. – Vet Who Made It Through Dear Abby: I am a longtime college professor. Many bright students, young and old, have similar complaints. “Torn,” you sound like a great student, as many vets are. Try evening classes. They’re usually available to any enrolled student and are the same courses taught in day sections. Students enrolled in these classes are

mostly working adults who are more dedicated. See if your college has online courses, so you won’t have to deal with the students in person, although you may have to take part in online discussions. Check out your college’s career services office and find a part-time job. This will give you a different peer group, plus give you some experience in your field. Your college’s veterans’ office may also have helpful resources for you. I hope these ideas will help your college experience to be more pleasant and productive. – Dr. M. in Oklahoma City

Sudden drop in sex drive merits doctor visit Dear Dr. K: I’m a woman in my 50s. I’ve always had a healthy sex drive, but lately it’s gone bye-bye. What could be wrong? Dear Reader: There aren’t a lot of people with a take-itor-leave-it attitude about sex. We are sexual creatures, and for most of our lives, we are well aware of having sexual desire. So when you notice that it’s just not there, it is upsetting. Many women report a loss of sexual desire. One huge survey of women in different countries found that more than 30 percent of women report this problem, to the point that it causes them distress. Loss of desire is most frequent among women in the 45-65 age group, and then tapers off after age 65.

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff There are many reasons for a decline in a person’s sex drive, some physical and some psychological. A decline in the production of estrogen with menopause is one reason, and most U.S. women enter menopause in their early 50s. The “male” hormones, androgens, are also made by women, in lower amounts. They are important in generating sexual desire. A substantial fraction of female androgens are made by the ovaries. While female androgen levels remain relatively constant after menopause, removal of the ovaries

(surgical menopause) can cause testosterone, the main type of androgen, to drop, and with it, sexual desire. While sexual desire declines somewhat in women after menopause, a sudden drop for no good reason merits a trip to your doctor. He or she will look for physical causes to explain your diminished sex drive. Many chronic medical conditions can impinge on desire. So, too, can treatments for these conditions. Low libido may also stem from chronic pain that causes discomfort during intercourse. A common cause of such pain is the condition called endometriosis. If there are no obvious physical causes to address, your doctor will explore your attitudes and feelings about

sex. For example, has your relationship with your partner changed recently? Your doctor will also ask about depression, self-image, stress and fatigue. If there may be a psychological or relationship issue, one option is sex therapy. The therapist may suggest that both you and your significant other participate. You will be encouraged to explore any negative feelings that may surround sex. Relationship-building exercises may be recommended to increase trust, communication and sensual awareness. You may also be taught stress-reduction techniques. Medical treatments are also available. One option is hormone treatment with testosterone. As testosterone levels decline with age, a

woman’s sexual interest and responsiveness may also drop off. Another medical option is bupropion. This antidepressant may increase sexual desire and arousal even if you don’t have depression. It can also counter the negative sexual side effects of other antidepressant medications. Finally, an experimental drug called flibanserin appears to boost female sexual desire. However, it has not been FDA-approved to treat low libido in women. Most of my female patients who have experienced distressing lack of sexual desire have been helped by one of more of these treatments.

You’re not a contestant on ‘The Dating Game’ Dr. Wallace: I’m 21 and have a major problem. Luke and I dated for more than three years. A year ago, we became engaged and had our pictures in the newspaper smiling at each other and looking like we were in love. I was in love, but I guess he wasn’t. A month after the announcement hit the paper, we broke up. He said that he didn’t love me and had fallen in love with someone else. I was heartbroken, and when Luke married this girl, I felt abandoned and alone. After a while, I actually felt relieved because I could now put Luke out of my mind, even though I felt I still

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace loved him. I met Mark shortly after Luke got married. Mark is sweet, kind, gentle and has a great sense of humor. We were married after a 6-month courtship. I do love Mark with all my heart and soul, and he loves and adores me. We are very happy and plan to have three children as soon as we can afford it. We are both employed full-time, but if I had to stop working, it would be a strain at this

TODAY – Conditions in general could make you unusually restless in the year ahead. However, if you put your mind to it, you could find numerous new ways to successfully channel your energies and ambitions. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – A new endeavor could turn out to have much more potential than even you thought. Give promising opportunities your full attention. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – You happen to be in an excellent achievement cycle, so the last thing you should be worrying about is getting things done. Obstacles facing you will be easily circumvented. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – There are strong indications that you might form a new alliance with someone whose interests and ideas merge especially well with yours. This will be a propitious pairing. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Instead of just thinking about making some changes that you believe could be advantageous, go ahead and make them. Your instincts will point you in the right direction. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – If you’re in need of a special favor, go to a friend instead of a co-worker. The former is likely to help; the latter might resent it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Impressive strides can be made where your work-related objectives are concerned. However, this will only happen if you elevate your sights and shoot for the moon. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – You should be very effective when reorganizing things that require a special touch. Instinctively, you’ll know what needs fixing. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Although you might have to scout around, there are strong chances that you will arrange something that could produce higher wages for yourself and a colleague. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Don’t treat your new ideas lightly or put them on the back burner. For some reason, they’re likely to work better at this particular time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Usually, it isn’t smart to depend too heavily on a hunch, especially when it involves your work, yet today could be an exception. Be sure to use all of your assets. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Your chart indicates there is good justification for optimism where your work is concerned. It happens to be one of those days when you can achieve anything. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – If you’re working on something that you believe has social and commercial potential, do your best to bring many people into the process.

time. When Mark and I were married, we did not invite Luke, but I saw him at the church service. We did not speak then, but he recently came by my work and asked to speak with me. He told my boss it was important, so when my boss told me, I peeked out the door and was shocked to see Luke. I spoke with him and couldn’t believe it when he told me he made a mistake marrying this other woman and that he still loved me even more than ever and would wait until the end of time for me to return to him. I told him I had to finish my work and went back


to my office. Now I’m confused and don’t know what to do. I admit that I still love Luke, but I also love my husband dearly. It’s just that I seem to love them in different ways. What do you think I should do? – Nameless, Toledo, Ohio Nameless: You don’t really need an advice columnist’s input. You’re not a contestant on “The Dating Game.” You are a married woman who has chosen a lifelong companion. If you abandon your husband on the whim of a guy as selfish and emotionally unstable as Luke, you’ll regret the decision for the rest

of your life – and probably sooner rather than later. My guess is that, if you fell for Luke’s line, he’d abandon you a second time, maybe at the altar. This is the game he plays. You made a vow to your husband. Keep it! Luke has shown up in your life as a tantalizing temptation. By saying no to his inappropriate advances, you’ll strengthen your own marriage and understand that you are a young woman with integrity – and in other words, someone who is worth loving.

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Handle the distributions Edward R. Murrow is a central character in the World War II book “Citizens of London” by Lynne Olson (Random House). Murrow said, “The speed of communications is wondrous to behold. It is also true that speed can multiply the distribution of information that we know to be untrue.” At the bridge table, since cards are hidden, distribution information can be uncertain. Players must try to allow for as many as possible. This deal is an example. South was in four hearts. How did he play after West surprisingly led the spade three and East dropped the king under dummy’s ace? North and South were using two-over-one game-forcing, so three hearts was forcing. South signed off in four hearts because he had a minimum opening bid. At trick two, declarer led a heart to his ace. When West dropped the 10, South wondered if this was a singleton or from a doubleton queen-10 or 10-nine. Rather than decide immediately, declarer led his diamond queen. West won with her ace and played another spade. East took the trick with his queen and returned a diamond. Now South had an almost sure thing. He carefully played a heart to his king. Here, the queen dropped, so he drew the last trump and claimed an overtrick. But if West had discarded, South would have played on clubs, discarding spades and holding East to one trump trick. Note that if South had finessed his heart jack at trick five, he would have failed, because West would have won the trick and led a spade, East overruffing dummy’s heart eight with his nine.
