Nothing to cluck about Chickens have not caused a stir in Batavia By ERIC SCHELKOPF

Some of Jeanette Armbrust’s chickens wander in the backyard of her Batavia home. According to the city’s code, the maximum number of hens a household can have is eight. To see more photos, visit KCChronicle. com.

eschelkopf@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – Every morning before dawn, Batavia resident Jeanette Armbrust goes into the chicken coop in her backyard to see whether her chickens have enough water and whether there are any newly laid eggs. “The yolk is really yellow,” Armbrust said. “They taste better than store-bought eggs.” Armbrust, an administrative secretary for the city of Batavia, and other Batavia residents have been able to raise chickens in their backyards since May 2011. Aldermen voted to allow the chickens with certain restrictions, including a prohibition on roosters. In addition, the maximum number of hens that a household can have is eight. Batavia residents were allowed to raise chickens until 1991, when the city’s code was changed because of complaints of roosters waking people in the morning. So far, their return is being greeted warmly. “I have not had one complaint since the ordinance was passed,” Batavia code compliance officer Rhonda Klecz said. The lack of complaints has surprised her. “I thought this was going to be an issue,” she said. “But I haven’t received any complaints about smells or rodents.” Since the ordinance was passed, 12 Batavia households have received permits allowing them to have chickens. Chickens are required to be kept in an enclosure that is a minimum of 32 square feet, and chicken coops must be at least 30 feet away from any neighboring house. “We inspect them when they come in to get a permit to make sure it is built correctly and in the right location,” Klecz said. “We do have the right to inspect it at any time.” Armbrust said raising chickens brings back memories of her childhood. “My dad was in the Army, and we lived in Missouri on a

farmette,” she said. “We ran around in the chicken coop barefoot when we were growing up.” But for anyone considering raising chickens, Armbrust warned there is a time commitment involved. “You have to really want them,” Armbrust said. “They do require care. I get up at 5:30 a.m. every morning and rake out their house. I give them fresh bedding if they need it, and put their poop in the compost pile.” Batavia 5th Ward Alderman Lucy Thelin Atac and her husband started raising chickens this spring. “They’re pretty quiet and they are very sweet,” she said. “They are a lot quieter than dogs in my opinion.” Her hens are pullets, meaning they are younger than a year old. By the fall, Atac hopes her chickens will lay eggs, which she plans to share with

her neighbors. St. Charles is the only other community in central Kane County that allows backyard chickens. Geneva, Elburn and Sugar Grove all ban backyard chickens. The Geneva City Council last year deadlocked on whether to start allowing residents to have backyard hens. Geneva Mayor Kevin Burns broke the 5-5 vote by voting “no.” “We have more important issues to focus on than adjudicating neighbors’ complaints regarding odors and noise,” Burns said. But Rob Ludlow, who has co-authored such books as “Raising Chickens For Dummies” and is the owner of the website www.backyardchickens.com, said the backyard chicken movement continues to grow across the country. The website’s community forum has grown to 200,000

members after starting out with 50 members in January 2007, he said. “Many people want to become more self-sufficient and take part in the grow local and slow food movements,” Ludlow said. “Having a handful of egg-laying hens in a relatively small yard allows people to participate in these movements without having to move or drastically change their lifestyle.” He said backyard chickens provide a number of benefits. “People are quickly realizing that chickens are a multiple purpose pet,” Ludlow said. “Chickens eat the bugs and weeds in your yard, generate fantastic fertilizer, and, of course, are a pet that makes you breakfast.” Then there’s the entertainment value. “They are fun to watch,” Armbrust said. “You can crack up at their antics.”

STC aldermen split on comprehensive plan By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles City Council is about two weeks away from adopting the 2013 comprehensive plan, a document outlining a vision of how the community could evolve and improve over the next two decades. After a public hearing Monday, aldermen voted to incorporate revisions from the Plan Commission and Planning and Development Committee into the comprehensive plan draft and directed staff to finalize the document for adoption. Final adoption is tentatively set for Aug. 19, said Mayor Ray Rogina, who outlined the document’s purpose before the public hearing began. “The plan functions as a guide only,” he said, noting the document doesn’t change a property’s zoning. The proposed plan, which

is the culmination of more than two years of work, hasn’t gained unanimous support among aldermen. First Ward Alderman Ron Silkaitis, 2nd Ward Alderman Art Lemke and 4th Ward Alderman Jim Martin voted against it Monday. First Ward Alderman Dan Stellato abstained. The dissenting aldermen noted dissatisfaction about housing, particularly on the former St. Charles Mall site near Randall Road and Route 38. “I think we need to say what we want, otherwise we don’t really have a chance of getting it,” Lemke said. Several aldermen in support of the proposed plan said restrictions will limit creativity and development options. “I don’t know what it is, but I’m going to count on the ingenuity of America to bring it forward,” 3rd Ward Alderman Bill Turner said of a plan

for the old mall site. Fourth Ward Alderman Jo Krieger said proposed developments will still go through an evaluation process. “I think we’re overlooking the fact that any development will have to come before the Plan Commission and the Planning and Development Committee before it ever comes before the council,” she said. Fifth Ward Alderman Maureen Lewis and 2nd Ward Alderman Rita Payleitner spoke about trusting their fellow aldermen, now and in the future. “Thank you all for showing up,” Lewis told the crowd. “I do listen. I do understand. I do share a lot of your concerns, but I don’t have any fear.” To review the comprehensive plan documents, click on the “Comprehensive Plan” link on the city’s website, www.stcharlesil.gov.

Batavia OKs hiring ex-STC economic development head By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – Batavia aldermen Monday voted to hire former St. Charles economic development director Chris Aiston as an independent contractor for economic development services. As approved, Aiston will be paid an annual retainer of $88,000, to be paid biweekly in equal payments of $3,384. Meredith Hannah had been the Chris Aiston city’s economic development analyst since July 2008, but Hannah left the part-time post in February. But aldermen did not like a recommendation by City Administrator Bill McGrath that 33 percent of Aiston’s salary could be funded through the downtown’s tax increment financing dis-

tricts. “I certainly support the position of economic development director,” 7th Ward Alderman Dave Brown said. “But TIF is intended for specific projects within the TIF districts.” Aldermen approved funding the position outside of TIF funds. McGrath has said it is cheaper for the city to have a consultant than hiring a full-time employee. Because he would be a consultant, Aiston would not receive benefits, McGrath said. Aiston left his St. Charles post in July. He had been there since 2009. He has more than 20 years of experience in planning, zoning and economic development, including stints in Geneva, Kane County and DeKalb County, in addition to St. Charles. “Chris has terrific experience,” McGrath said. “We are very lucky to gain somebody like this.”

Aldermen vote down solar project By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – After nearly two hours of debate, Geneva aldermen Monday voted down a measure where the city would receive a state grant to establish a solar energy generating system. The city was eligible for a $246,000 grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. The

matching grant would have required the city to put up nearly $370,000 to install a 120 kW solar array. The deal-killer was twofold: The city’s portion of the cost and a proposed location – an acre of the 580 acres at the Prairie Green site – even though it could have been changed later. Fifth Ward Alderman Tom Simonian argued against the cost, offering a cost-ben-

efit analysis saying the only green part of the project was the cost. Simonian also criticized the state for being in fiscal shambles, yet offering this much money in a grant. But 5th Ward Alderman Craig Maladra countered that comparing dollar for dollar was not really accurate, when considering the cost of fossil fuel today versus in the future.

Kane poised to OK demolition at jail site By JONATHAN BILYK jbilyk@shawmedia.com GENEVA – One of the last buildings remaining from the old Kane County Jail soon could be demolished. The Kane County Board could approve a $117,875 contract with American Demolition of Elgin,at its regular meeting Aug. 13. The County Board’s Finance Committee unanimously recommended approval of the contract during its meeting Wednesday. Under the terms of the deal, the company would demolish and remove the debris from the building known as

Kane County Sheriff’s Office Post 1. Located along Fabyan Parkway on Geneva’s east side, the structure was once part of the Kane County Sheriff’s Office’s administration center, when the property was home to the Kane County Jail. However, after jail operations were transferred in 2008 to the new Kane County Jail on Route 38 near Peck Road, the building largely was abandoned and fell into disrepair. The old jail structure was demolished last year, also by American Demolition. But several structures remained, including Post 1, which

“This is another project we’ve been wanting to get done for a number of years.” John Hoscheit R-St. Charles, Kane County Board member also housed the Kane County Sheriff’s Office firearms training range. The sheriff’s office abandoned that shooting range earlier this year when Kane County Sheriff Pat Perez said an analysis determined that flooding had left the range too contaminated by lead and mold to use. The County Board since has approved funding to de-

sign a new shooting range at the new county jail. Kane County Board member and Chairman of the Finance Committee John Hoscheit, R-St. Charles, said the demolition work is necessary. “This is another project we’ve been wanting to get done for a number of years,” Hoscheit said. County officials said the

demolition work will be paid from the county’s Enterprise Surcharge Fund, a special account holding money collected in fees paid by garbage haulers who had dumped trash over decades at the adjacent Settler’s Hill landfill. That money is restricted by law from being spent on anything other than projects to rehabilitate the jail site and landfill property. When this round of demolition work is completed, only three buildings will remain on the property, including the sheriff’s office’s diagnostics center, a fleet maintenance building and storage units.

Everyone sees the sheriff’s cars on patrol, but at this event, they get to see all of the services we are able to provide.” Elburn police will celebrate at 6 p.m. at Lions Park, 500 Filmore St., Elburn.

Bruce Rauner, Republican candidate for governor, shakes hands with Brenda Thomas of Pingree Grove on Sunday evening during a fundraiser in Elburn. Other candidates, including Dillard, a state senator, also weighed in on pension reform. He said if he were governor, the Legislature would not be able to do anything until they found a solution to the state’s unfunded pensions. “I voted for [House Speaker Michael Madigan’s] bill,” he said. “While it’s not perfect, it works.” Madigan’s proposal would reduce the state’s pension costs by about $187 billion over 30 years, according to published reports.

Brady, also a state senator, ran four years ago on the Republican ticket against Gov. Pat Quinn. He said he considers himself a fiscal conservative who has a track record of opposing tax increases. He said his goals if elected

include cutting government spending, pension reform, paying down the state’s bills, creating jobs and implementing term limits. Brady said one facet of pension reform should include reassessing cost-of-living wage increases to more accurately

ELBURN – Four Republican gubernatorial candidates – Dan Rutherford, Bill Brady, Kirk Dillard and Bruce Rauner – highlighted their platforms for the 2014 governor race when they stopped in Elburn on Sunday evening. The candidates were among many Republicans who attended the annual Western Kane County Republican Organization fundraiser at Lions Park. Dennis Ryan, chairman of the organization, said funds raised Sunday would go toward supporting the Illinois Republican Party as a whole rather than individual candidates. Among the governor candidates’ priorities in the upcoming election are job creation and solving the pension crisis. Rutherford, the state treasurer, said Sunday that his platform is simple. “My priority is jobs, jobs, jobs,” he said. “Everything else we do is secondary today other than jobs.” His plan for bolstering job creation, he said, is to help business owners cut through the “bureaucracy of state government.” As far as solving the state’s more than $80 billion in unfunded pension liabilities, Rutherford said pension reforms need to be done “fairly and substantively.”

reflect market conditions. Once pension reform is in place, he said the state will be in a more viable financial position, which will help create jobs. “Once we merchandize the state properly, we can start being proactive in selling all that we have,” he said. Rauner said he’s running in his first political race because “our state is in terrible shape.” He said the state struggles with high unemployment, school deterioration, high taxes and businesses heading to other states. “Career politicians failed at fixing the problem, and union bosses are running Springfield for their own benefit,” he said. “I’m an independent person. I just want to get things done.” His goals if elected include improving the state’s business climate and creating jobs, making government more transparent and efficient, making sure education is a top priority, and implementing term limits. Rauner said his business background as a venture capitalist will help him run government more like a business.

NORTH AURORA – It took about a year, but Jason Rinella restored his 1966 Plymouth Fury to look as close to an original Chicago police car as possible, right down to the original 1966 city sticker on the windshield. Rinella, a Glendale Heights police officer on disability leave, displayed the blue and white car alongside more than a dozen other older police cars during the 16th annual Chicagoland Emergency Vehicle Show on Saturday during North Aurora Days. The show featured about 100 emergency and police vehicles, said Dave Weaver, who organizes the show. He said the car show is among the largest of its kind in the Midwest and has been part of North Aurora Days since 2003. “We restore all the cars as accurately as possible,” Rinella said. “The parts and the ancillary items are original like they were when they were in service in those days.” Rinella rattled off about a

of staff for the Illinois Department of Corrections. He had his restored 1973 Dodge Polara on display near Rinella’s. Families stopped to take pictures and look at all types of cars, including a 1959 International fire truck from the Rib Lake Fire Department and a 1949 American LaFrance fire truck from the Hillside Fire Department. The show also featured an armored ballistics vehicle owned by the Kane County Sheriff’s SWAT Team, as well as a demonstration on how the SWAT team uses a flash bomb to gain a tactful advantage in a dangerous situation. Crowds also gathered to watch a Lifestar helicopter demonstrate a landing. Some got to see firsthand how sirens and emergency lights worked, while others tried on firefighter uniforms. Danielle and Bola Akinlawon of Wheaton decided to bring their 1-year-old son, Tyson, to check out the vehicles after hearing about the vehicle show from a friend. “He’s in the truck phase,” said Danielle Akinlawon.

OPINIONS LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Finding serendipity To the Editor: In her opinion piece that appeared in the July 17 edition of the Kane County Chronicle, Virginia Postrel describes a wonderful place that everyone would consider a happy discovery – a place that has books to examine, as well as Wi-Fi and an easy way to buy books online. As we read the article, all of us at the St. Charles Public Library had a strong feeling of déjà vu. This place that Ms. Postrel recommends, Barnes & Noble, as a new business model already exists in every community – it is the local public library. At your library, you may find a book you like by browsing the shelves and displays; looking in the catalog with its book summaries and reviews; by talking with

a readers services specialist; or by checking the many recommended reading lists on the library’s website. You can even use the catalog and download e-books from the comfort and convenience of your own home. When you find the perfect book, you may read it in the library or check it out and take it home. We’re a green and economical choice – all those books (and DVDs and online services) we buy are shared, don’t require storage space in your house, and have a great return on investment.

Obama makes cuts as defense spending on the decline THE WASHINGTON POST Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Wednesday released a sobering report on the deep funding problems looming at the Pentagon, which is on track to fall tens of billions short of what it needs to fulfill the strategic mission that President Barack Obama has articulated for the national defense. The same day, Obama told congressional Democrats that the Pentagon should get no more attention than many other areas of the budget also subject to the punishing automatic spending cuts known as sequestration. That can’t be the final answer from the commander in chief.

Obama’s latest budget proposes $150 billion in defense cuts over 10 years, which Hagel claims could be managed. Sequestration, however, requires $500 billion in cuts over 10 years. Hagel’s review estimates that closing unnecessary facilities and duplicative offices could yield $60 billion over a decade. Reasonable measures to rein in personnel costs, which have soared 40 percent above inflation for more than a decade, might yield $50 billion over 10 years, while harsher personnel measures might produce $100 billion. The Pentagon reckons it can safely slash the size of some forces, such as the cargo plane fleet, the ground

and tactical air forces and the standing army and reserves a bit. But even assuming Congress would permit what Hagel sees as rational cuts – and that is unlikely – these wouldn’t come close to satisfying the demands of the sequester. Instead, the Defense Department would have to choose between maintaining technological sophistication or numerical strength. If it chose the former, Hagel explained, it would keep “a force that would be technologically dominant but would be much smaller and able to go fewer places and do fewer things, especially if crises occurred at the same

time in different regions of the world.” The other option would result in a larger force capable of international deployment but with aging weapons systems that rivals would have an easier time matching. Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said in testimony Thursday that either way would “mark a significant departure from the missions our nation has been accustomed to being able to accomplish.” The entire sequester, hitting defense and nondefense, was bad policy when lawmakers passed it; it was bad policy when they let it begin; and it remains bad policy. The president is right to press for

the whole thing to end, along with Congress’ indefensibly short-term approach to budgeting. Political tactics may compel him for the moment not to give national security special consideration, given House Republicans’ intransigence. But Obama ultimately can’t act as though the Defense Department’s sequester cuts are equivalent in consequence to every other item in the budget. The country’s defense is a core responsibility of the federal government, and its armed forces are critical to the nation’s ability to exert leadership, maintain alliances, defend human rights and preserve the nation’s safety.

Batavia’s Eustace picks Indiana By JAY SCHWAB jschwab@shawmedia.com

L

aren Eustace already liked the Indiana baseball program when he woke up Monday. Then a phone call came that made Eustace fond enough of the Hoosiers to abruptly end his college recruitment. The Indiana coaching staff sweetened its scholarship offer to Eustace, and later in the day the Batavia senior center fielder committed to the Hoosiers. “They were already No. 1, just raising the offer made it like any other school, whatever they would have done, really couldn’t have done anything to change that because it really is where I wanted to go,” Eustace said. The fleet-footed, 5-foot-9, 165-pound left-handed hitter chose Indiana over offers from Notre Dame, Illinois, Cincinnati and Southeast Missouri. He also had significant interest from several other Division I programs, including Oklahoma State,

Michigan, Michigan State, Duke and Virginia. He was scheduled to visit Michigan State later this week before choosing Indiana, which is coming off its first College World Series berth in program history. Eustace batted .381 with 21 RBIs and 21 stolen bases last spring as the Bulldogs’ leadoff hitter. He visited Indiana last week and liked that the Hoosiers’ coaching staff was more personable and less businesslike than some of the other schools that were recruiting him. “They were fun to be around and they could also be like that father figure for me, too, so they could guide me and give me direction when it comes to being a college athlete,” Eustace said. Eustace’s decision brings some closure to a memorable summer of baseball. He said he and his travel team counted about 6,500 miles worth of baseball road trips. Out-of-state events in Indiana, Ohio, New York, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee clogged Eustace’s

calendar, and July 29, Eustace attended a showcase for 50 of the Midwest’s top high school baseball prospects, hosted by the Kansas City Royals. “It was pretty tough,” said Eustace, who plays travel ball with Lemont-based Team DeMarini. “You’ve really got to like baseball if you’re traveling that much.” College baseball might not be Eustace’s only option after he plays his senior season at Batavia next spring. At the showcase in Kansas City, Eustace and the other prospects were given extensive information about breaking in to professional baseball. “It was really cool, because I got to see kind of where I stacked up among top Midwest players,” Eustace said of the showcase, for which he said he was recommended by a Cincinnati Reds scout. The Kansas City trip made for a thrilling capstone to his summer, although rain that day forced the workouts indoors rather than at the Royals’ Kauffman Stadium as originally planned. He said all 30 major league teams were

represented. “They did a lot of stuff educating you on the [major league draft], just how that works with the selection process and every team gives you a questionnaire you have to fill out with your medical history. … Every time you’ve been to the hospital, they want to know about it because if they’re going to invest money, they want to make sure there’s nothing extremely eye-opening they wouldn’t want to draft you because of.” Still, Eustace said he anticipates playing college baseball rather than attempting to filter directly into the pro ranks. “I really want to get my education first,” Eustace said. “If I got drafted, I don’t really know if I’d be very highly drafted because those kids are already talking to agents and stuff. ... I think I’m just going to get my education and then if it comes junior year when I’m draft-eligible in college, if the opportunity comes, then I think I’ll take it and see where it goes from there.”

ST. CHARLES – In years past, if you saw the two names “Woods” and “Daly” at the top of a golf tournament leaderboard, it was a heated battle on the PGA Tour. But this is a local rivalry, notably at the St. Charles Men’s Golf Tournament, between defending champion Matt Daly and 2011 winner Jon Woods. In match play Sunday as part of the quarterfinals at Pottawatomie Golf Course, Daly got the better of Woods – just barely – and advanced to next weekend’s semifinal round with a 1-up victory in 20 holes over his friend. “That was the closest match I’ve ever played in my life, and I have the utmost respect for Jon,” Daly said. “He is grinder and we both grinded it out.” Facing elimination and the opportunity to defend his title in next week’s round, Daly was down two holes with two to play, but he found his niche just in time to pull out the win. “I was in panic mode,” Daly said. “But I made an amazing bunker shot on the second hole … what can I say, I’m freaking beat and I’ve never gone 20 holes.” Daly started his round rather routinely, but things started to swing to the dark side on the back nine and his ‘B’ game started to creep up. “I just could not find the fairways,” he said. “I was having trouble even with 4 irons and 5 irons to find the fairways and just couldn’t do it and I had to scramble.” It wasn’t until the final two holes, Nos. 17 and 18, when Daly officially made his comeback to force the extra match play. “I won 18 and that got it back all square,” Daly said. “I hit a six iron out of the trees from about 150 [yards] and rode it. He made six and I made five and kept it going on to the next hole. It was just amazing.” Weather didn’t play much of a factor in Daly’s game as he was treated with sunshine, mid-70s temperatures and very little wind, but he did have a lit-

St. Charles driver looks to defend Late Models title There’s more to Sycamore Speedway math than points standings. St. Charles driver Tim Ludke almost learned the hard way. Now that he has a grasp on cross-weight percentage – in short, it affects balance, momentum and steering in those lifeblood left turns – Ludke can more comfortably defend his Late Models title at the speedway in Richardson. “I love where I’m at right now,” he said, “especially since we got the car fixed and got the car back to where it’s going like it’s supposed to.” Ludke credits fellow series racer Ricky Walters of Elgin

QUICK READ Kevin Druley for his optimism. It was Walters who allowed Ludke to come to his home and use the computer-based scale system that determines cross-weight. While every car’s optimal weight is different, Ludke knew by his inconsistent acceleration that something was up. The scale figured the weight of the left rear quadrant multiplied by that of the right front quadrant and analyzed that total against

the weight of the car itself. The final number told Ludke one simple thing, more or less: he needed to increase his tire pressure. “It’s good to know the competitors are still helping each other,” Ludke said. “No more calculations. It’s really great.” Ludke’s sturdy No. 20 car wasn’t without other problems earlier in the season. He went through a pair of clutches, and in one instance, his clutch failed moments after he had won a feature. Not exactly what Ludke wanted – or expected – in the usual upbeat sequence between crossing the finish line first and darting for a picture

in victory lane. A handful of challengers are close at hand – including series rookie D.J. Markham of Marengo and Jordan Jackowiak of DeKalb – but Ludke likes his chances now that everything – or at least his car – is in balance. “It was amazing how much of a difference just that little bit of work made,” Ludke said. Well said: Like many of his Latin American teammates, Cougars third baseman Jeimer Candelario admittedly has made strides with his English this season. The parent Cubs have offered classes at Fifth Third

Bank Ballpark at various points during the season, but you get the sense it was more than classroom comprehension that inspired the following from Jeimer Candelario: Candelario “It’s a long game. It’s nine innings, you know. You do the job and then win.”

‘Mama’s Boy’ Otis Wilson talks about Briggs taking over the reins of defense VIEWS Hub Arkush and how critical it is to the Bears’ Super Bowl hopes, Wilson believes it’s new quarterback, Lance Briggs, and how he replaces Brian Urlacher could be the biggest key to the Bears season, and it won’t be easy for him. “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].” “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 Brian 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. “It’s hard to replace Brian, not just his talent

After eight seasons with the Bears, Wilson missed the ’88 season because of injury and then tried to play with the Raiders in 1989 but managed just one game before he was forced to retire. He was younger than Briggs, Julius Peppers and Peanut 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. 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 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.”

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 also 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 at Soldier Field and then joining them at their next practice back in Bourbonnais. He tells me he’s heard a lot of good things about new head 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 offense has become around the league though and 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].” Everyone knows how critical Jay Cutler will be to the success of this team but looking at this Bears defense

Trestman pleased with team after rest day

Kane County Chronicle / KCChronicle.com • Tuesday, August 6, 2013

By KEVIN FISHBAIN kfishbain@shawmedia.com 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 Stephen Paea 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 Sat-

urday. Earl Bennett sat out for “rest and evaluation,” as Trestman said, for a possible concussion. Stephen Paea had tightness in his hip and did not partake in team drills. Jonathan Scott (knee) returned to practice, while D.J. Williams went back to wearing a boot for his injured calf. Bostic improving: Rookie middle linebacker Jon Bostic received praise on a run he made in team drills. Defensive coordinator Mel Tucker said Bostic is getting “better and better every day” as he takes over for the injured Williams. “I think he’s playing faster,” Tucker said. “His alignments are better, just more detailed, more precise in what he’s doing.” Quick hits: Josh McCown connected with Terrence Toliver a couple times in practice, once for an impressive back-shoulder touchdown. … Shea McClellin blew up a reverse in the backfield and had another nice spin move around J’Marcus Webb in pass rush drills.

KOVELS: ANTIQUES AND COLLECTING

BY TERRY KOVEL KOVELS.COM Lenci is a famous name among doll collectors. Lenci dolls were first made by Elena Konig Scavini (1886-1974). She ran away from home when she was 14 and joined a circus. A few years later, she started making dolls. In the early 1900s, she married Enrico Scavini, and by 1919 she had established the Scavini company to make dolls. By 1922 the company was listed as Lenci di E. Scavini. “Lenci” may have been a pet name for Elena. Her felt dolls were carefully made, with pouty mouths, googly eyes and elaborate felt costumes. They were expensive. The single word “Lenci” was used as a trademark as early as 1925. The company later had financial trouble and was sold in 1939. It closed in 2002. Lenci dolls are very popular with collectors, but few know about the company’s line of “fetish dolls.” They were shaped like vegetables or flowers or imaginary creatures. Fetish dolls were introduced in 1926. A later group was made in the 1960s. One rare fetish doll is a grasshopper wearing a top hat. A collector paid $336 for it at an important Theriault’s doll auction in November 2012. *** Q: My vintage gold-tone pocket cigarette lighter is marked “Regel pat. pend.” History and value? A: Regel lighters were made in Rhode Island in the 1930s. Most were marketed under the brand name “Regeliter.” The mechanism, manufactured by Regel under a German patent that belonged to Altenpohl & Pilgram, is not considered safe today. But your lighter still is collectible. If it’s in good condition, it would sell for about $40. *** Q: About 10 years ago, I rescued an old stove from a land dump. It’s 31 inches tall and 15 inches in diameter. A metal plate on it read: “Wetter’s Emerald” and “211.” Can you tell me something about this stove?

A: H. Wetter & Co. was in business in Memphis, Tenn., before 1883. The company was listed that year as “jobbers, agents and dealers in stoves, tinware, hardware, etc.” The factory in Memphis burned down in 1902, and the company moved production to an old stove factory in South Pittsburg, Tenn. The company was reorganized in about 1931 and became the United States Stove Co. The South Pittsburg factory was razed in 2003, but the United States Stove Co. still is in business, with facilities in Richard City, Tenn., and Bridgeport, Ala. *** Q: My old copper bowl is so tarnished that I can’t get it clean. Any suggestions? A: First, make sure your bowl is not from a famous maker. Check the bottom for a mark. If you find a mark, you may want to think twice about cleaning it. The patina that builds up through the years protects copper from corrosion, and some collectors don’t want the patina removed. But if the bowl is not valuable, you can buy a commercial cleaner at a hardware store or try a couple of home remedies. If the bowl is small, fill a zincfree pot with enough water to cover the bowl. Add a tablespoon of salt and a cup of vinegar. Put the bowl in the pot, bring the water to a boil and let it boil for several hours. Take the bowl out, let it cool, wash it with liquid dishwashing soap, rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Tarnish often can be removed by using a mixture of vinegar, salt and a bit of flour and water. Or try tomato paste or a mixture of salt and lemon juice. Do not use abrasive cleaners or steel wool. *** Q: After my husband died, I was going through his things and found a dollar “silver certificate” autographed by actress Ingrid Bergman. The bill is from “Series 1935A” and is signed by Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau Jr. My husband never said anything about the bill’s history. What is it worth, and how I can sell it? A: Silver certificates were issued from 1878 to 1964 and could be redeemed

It was made by Lenci, probably in the 1960s, and sold for $336 at a 2012 Theriault’s doll auction. for silver dollars or silver bullion. After a certificate was redeemed, it was destroyed and not recirculated. Early silver certificates were larger than today’s dollar bill, and are worth more than face value. Small certificates like those in your series were first issued in 1928. The government stopped redeeming the certificates for silver in June 1968, but the certificates still can be used as “legal

tender” at face value. Your certificate without Ingrid Bergman’s autograph would be worth just $1, but her autograph on a 3-by-5-inch card sold at auction for $100 last year. So your certificate probably is worth about that much if the autograph is genuine. *** Q: My mother was given a 1967 Wurlitzer Model 3100 jukebox. Where is the best place to sell it, and what is it worth?

Tip: Keep old, worn, vintage doll accessories. Even if you substitute new accessories, save the old ones. They add value.

A: The Rudolph Wurlitzer Co. was in business in Cincinnati from 1853 to 1988. It sold pianos made abroad before starting to manufacture its own coin-operated pianos in the 1880s. The company eventually made other musical instruments and manufactured jukeboxes from 1934 to 1974. Your late model is not worth as much as earlier ones, but if it works, it could sell for about $700. You will find websites that post jukeboxes for sale, but you also could try a live auction that specializes in coin-operated machines. You can find those online, too.

In many legends, gnomes guard veins of gold, copper, coal and even diamonds. In general, gnomes are considered helpful to people and some say the gnomes have led them to underground treasures.

Here’s a game to play with a friend. Read the story aloud to your friend. Tell them that every time they hear a word with a silent letter, they should stand up. If they miss the word or stand up at the wrong time, you must tell them to sit down.

A gnome, (pronounced nome), is a being that appears in legends around the world. Nearly every legend describes a gnome as a tiny, human-like creature that lives inside the earth.

Which treasure belongs to which gnome? Add up the numbers along each path. The number on each gnome’s hat matches the sum of the numbers along the trail to each one’s treasure.

Gnomes are said to look like small versions of the people in the countries where they live.

Standards Link: Math; compute sums and differences to 22.

In the box at right, draw what you think a gnome could look like.

Nobody has actually seen a gnome. They are most likely only characters in folktales. However, little gnomes made of clay can be seen in many gardens. Can you find which garden gnome in each row is different? Standards Link: Recognizing similarities and differences in common objects.

Find the words in the puzzle. Then look for each word in this week’s Kid Scoop stories and activities.

A World of Gnomes

Many of the early gnome legends come from Europe. When Europeans came to the Americas, they brought their stories about gnomes.

Standards Link: Social Science; students understand the importance of traditions, beliefs and customs in cultures.

Standards Link: Letter sequencing. Recognized identical words. Skim and scan reading. Recall spelling patterns.

Can you even up the weight in these three carts? Just move one stone to another cart so that the sums in all of the carts are the same. Standards Link: Math; students compute sums to 30; problem solving. ANSWER: Move the stone with the number 18 from cart ʻCʼ to cart ʻA.ʼ All the carts should add up to 30.

In Wales, gnomes are also called “knockers.” It is said that they are skillful miners and can be heard hammering and knocking in deep, abandoned mine tunnels. This endless knocking and hammering led to the name “knockers.”

Balancing Act Look through the newspaper for words that have a silent “g” or a silent “k” at the beginning. Cut out each word. Draw a picture that shows what each word means.

Find three pictures in the newspaper, one to represent BIG, another for BIGGER, and a third to represent BIGGEST. Label each picture. Repeat this activity with other words such as FUNNY, SAD and SMALL.

Standards Link: Decoding; recognize and decode consonant digraphs.

As you arrive at school, you feel something moving in your backback. Slowly, you open the backpack and discover a gnome! Write about what happens next.

Nicolas the (G)NOME woke up at the bottom of a hedge. His S(W)ORD was missing, his THUM(B) was hurting, and his (K)NEES were dirty. With a SI(G)H he remembered what had happened. Last NI(G)HT in the CAST(L)E he had sneaked some CRUM(B)S from the (K)NIGHTS table. By accident, he (K)NOCKED over a cup. He CLIM(B)ED on to the floor and (K)NELT to quietly pick it up but it was too late. The (K)NAVE who W(H)ISTLED loudly had spotted him. With a flick of his (W)RIST he scooped Nicolas up and hurled him out of the window. Luckily for Nicolas, he landed on the back of a LAM(B). CLIM(B)ING down, he slipped, rolled down the hill and into the hedge. Standards Link: Reading Comprehension: Follow simple written directions.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAYS

– United Feature Syndicate

HOROSCOPE By BERNICE BEDE OSOL Newspaper Enterprise Association 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.

Lifelong firearms education promoted in ‘Student of the Gun’ By DA KENTNER More Content Now Paul Markel is a former Marine and police officer who now works full-time as a small arms and tactics instructor. He has trained thousands of troops in preparation of their combat deployment. He also hosts the Student of the Gun website and produces films about safety preparedness. Markel is a firm proponent of firearms and their proper use and role in self-defense, as well as advocating that everyday people need to be familiar with the techniques and readily available equipment that can keep our families alive in emergencies. Markel recommends every vehicle and home contain at least a medical kit consisting of a ready-made tourniquet, gauze, duct tape, a plastic airway (an NPA – nasopharyngeal airway), and, that the owners know how to use the items. His website includes tips and tools for breaking windows to reach people trapped in vehicles. CPR and the Heimlich maneuver are also lifesaving techniques we should become practiced in if we truly want to be prepared to protect our families in any situation. That all said, Markel is a “Student of the Gun.” Besides his TV and radio programs promoting firearm use and education, he has written several books on the subject, including the acclaimed “Student of the Gun: A Beginner Once, A Student for Life.” To borrow from Markel: “Being a student of the gun represents a life’s journey toward education, enlightenment, and enjoyment of the use of firearms.” Most importantly, whether the reader is a first-time gun buyer, just curious, or

a seasoned veteran, Markel reminds readers that when it comes to firearms, the learning never stops.

DA Kentner: Disagreement is unavoidable when firearms are discussed. This interview alone will instantly inflame some readers before they even know what it’s about. Education is of primary importance to you. So, if it’s even possible, how can both sides of the issue become educated on the other side’s position? Paul Markel: When it comes to education it must be on-going and continuous. Many folks who argue tactics and gear took a one-day class 15 years ago and they are the local “expert.” Which surgeon do you want operating on you, the one whose last training was in 1982 or the surgeon who is current with all modern techniques?

DK: You come under fire from a few gun enthusiasts for your beliefs. Why do you think some consider you controversial? PM: Men tie their ownership and use of firearms directly to their egos. Any person who questions their choices or suggests something new or different is de facto attacking their ego. The knee-jerk reaction is often to lash out in an effort to protect a fragile self-image.

DK: What inspired you to become as knowledgeable as possible about firearms and safety? PM: I’ve always been a “gun guy.” When I was 11 years old my grandfather showed me how to use a Daisy BB gun and the die was cast. As a teenager I consumed every word I could from various gun magazines. When I was a U.S. Marine I qualified “Expert” with the rifle and pistol and my unit sent me to USMC Marksmanship Coaches School. That’s

More Content Now photo

Besides his TV and radio programs promoting firearm use and education, Markel wrote the acclaimed “Student of the Gun: A Beginner Once, A Student for Life.” when I knew I loved to coach and instruct others.

DK: Though you teach, as a student of your own mantra “the learning never stops,” you also continue to learn. Where do you go to continue your education? PM: I’ve traveled literally from New England to California attending firearms training courses. I’ve attend military, law enforcement and privately run academies. Most recently I completed an instructor development course at a local college.

DK: The Internet is rife with gun “experts” who can’t seem to agree on a variety of subjects. How can the average person sort out what’s accurate and what’s not?

PM: That is a difficult task. The first step it to take a live-training course. Get some experience under your belt. The more experience you have, the better able you will be to weed out the B.S. DK: Any parting comments for readers, regardless of their position on firearms? PM: Reading stimulates thought, and thinking people are in desperately short supply in this day and age. Books and DVD are great ways to access information, but they aren’t training. Training is something you do under the watchful eye of an instructor. You are a beginner once, you should be a student for life.

Help available for veterans going back to school Dear Abby: This letter is for “Torn in Milford, Conn.” 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 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;

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips 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 or 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. – 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. 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. I hope these ideas will help your college experience to be more pleasant and productive. – Dr. M. In Oklahoma City • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Sudden drop in sex drive merits trip to the doctor Dear Doctor K: I’m a woman in my 50s. I’ve always had a healthy sex drive, but lately it’s gone byebye. What could be wrong? Dear Reader: There aren’t a lot of people with a take-it-or-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. 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

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff 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. Most of my female patients who have experienced distressing lack of sexual desire have been helped by one of more of these treatments.

Woman’s fiancée falls in love with someone else 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 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 fulltime, but if I had to stop working, it would be a strain at this 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

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace 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 Dear 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. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@ galesburg.net.


CROSSWORD

SUDOKU

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

• Tuesday, August 6, 2013

CELEBRITY CIPHER

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.
