Hill set to give Jourdan RTA nod Board chairwoman wants succession plan for longtime GOP insider

Al Jourdan has continued to serve on the Regional Transportation Authority Board despite his contract expiring April 1. McHenry County Board Chairwoman Tina Hill plans to reappoint Jourdan.

By KEVIN P. CRAVER kcraver@shawmedia.com McHenry County Board Chairwoman Tina Hill plans to move forward with reappointing Al Jourdan to the

Regional Transportation Authority Board, but with an agreement with the longtime GOP insider about a succession plan. Hill, R-Woodstock, said she plans to meet Thursday with

Jourdan about reappointment to another five-year term, but with emphasis on training a replacement to succeed him, which she said could be sooner than five years. Jourdan’s term expired April 1, but he

has continued to serve – a reappointment vote had been postponed because of turmoil at Metra and legislation aimed at eliminating the RTA board altogether. “I need him right now be-

The power of ‘Healing Tales’ Horses aid in recovery of trauma patients By KATIE FINLON kfinlon@shawmedia.com

SPRING GROVE – When Elizabeth Freund saw her 13-year-old daughter interact with her horse, she was intrigued by the relationship between them. Freund also observed her daughter’s riding peers, and noticed they seemed to struggle with developing relationship skills during adolescence. Freund – who has bachelor’s degrees in psychology and criminal justice administration and is working toward a master’s degree in psychology – said the relationship her daughter had with the horse was what saved her child from struggles during her adolescent years. “The power it had to get her through

her adolescence was overwhelming,” Freund said. “The horse was able to reach her in a way that I couldn’t and was the only one who was able to overpower the influence of her peers. That was probably the kernel, and I wondered if horses could reach abused and neglected kids that way.” Thus, Healing Tales – an equine facilitated learning program for trauma patients based at North Hill Farm, 1214 Main Street Road in Spring Grove – was born in 2011. Because humans and horses are both

SPRINGFIELD – More communities across Illinois are opting to pay big bucks to hire lobbyists to represent their interests in Springfield, according to a group that tracks the spending. About 140 local government units in the state – half of which are municipalities – have outside help trying to influence policies in Springfield, according to Lee Enterprises newspapers. The Illinois Campaign for Political Reform says the communities and public organizations spent a combined $4.7 million in 2010 on lobbyists. While more recent figures aren’t available, experts say the amount of money being spent by public bodies is increasing. “A city may think they need to hire someone in order to get face time with the people in charge,” ICPR Acting Director David Morrison said. That may be because the lawmakers elected to represent the community are from a different party as legislative leaders in Springfield. Or because redrawn legislative boundaries may split a city into several House and Senate districts. City leaders in Normal voted this week to spend $36,000 a year to hire a former aide to Gov. Pat Quinn to represent the city in Springfield. John Kamis was also hired to attract more state money to the community. McLean County spends about $7,500 a year on a lobbying contract with Anderson Consulting. County administrator Bill Wasson said it’s worth the expense.

Sense of history battles dollars, cents Advance apologies that this is going to be a wishy-washy column, because my left brain is fighting my right brain. More Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots than Ali vs. Frazier. When the city of Woodstock decided to buy the Old Courthouse building, I was concerned it was inheriting a taxpayer burden. That’s even more apparent today than it was a year ago when it made the purchase. Reporter Shawn Shinneman’s Wednesday story stated what many probably predicted. After putting about $2 million in repairs into the 1858 building, the city doesn’t have much interest from private parties who’d like to buy the property and continue with an additional $2.7 million in needed repairs. That’s serious money. In fact, $2.7 million represents about what the city takes in each year from property taxes. It’s not feasible to expect taxpayers to fund the remainder of those repairs,

VIEWS Kevin Lyons and at this point city leaders aren’t taking that route. From a practical, fiscal standpoint, this should concern Woodstock taxpayers and the word “boondoggle” does come to mind. From an aesthetic, historic standpoint, it’s more complicated than that. The Old Courthouse isn’t just another building. Along with the nearby Woodstock Opera House, it’s the most recognizable building in town and certainly in the top five within the entire county. If you look at this as just a dollarsand-cents issue, it doesn’t make sense for the city to own the property and continue investing in repairing it. But when you look at the bigger picture,

the plan is one that probably many Woodstock residents will go along with, even if begrudgingly. Aside from wonderful residents, Woodstock’s most permanent asset is the Woodstock Square. That’s not likely to change, nor should it. Another restaurant or retail chain is fine but fleeting. As the economy continues to falter, businesses on the Square come and go. That’s frustrating for residents, business owners and city leaders. But hopefully, that’s also temporary. It’s still a beautiful spot to enjoy a city band concert, the Woodstock Farmers Market, or even a wedding. You can still enjoy a production at the Opera House, a film, a meal or just a few drinks at the establishments that are still surviving. We’ve celebrated baptisms, First Communions, birthdays and Mother’s Days at La Petite Creperie and enjoyed Christmas carols and early

Santa Claus sightings at the Lighting of the Square. Countless breakfasts at Angelo’s and dinners at the Public House are also key parts of Woodstock life. It’s a special place, and the architecture of the Square isn’t just for decoration. It’s rare for towns to have such a cultural center, and the buildings of the Square are what help allow that to continue. It’s impossible to imagine the Square without the Old Courthouse building. The best we can do is hope that a private investor will find an economic benefit to the building and preserve its history. In the meantime, it would be irresponsible to let that piece of history crumble.

By BARBARA RODRIGUEZ The Associated Press DES MOINES, Iowa – The allure of capturing the estimated $425 million Powerball jackpot had players in a buying frenzy Wednesday, further confirming a trend that lottery officials say has become the big ticket norm: Fatigued Powerball players, increasingly blase about smaller payouts, often don’t get into the game until the jackpot offers big bucks. Meghan Graham, a convenience store worker from Brookline, Mass., has purchased nearly a dozen Powerball tickets in recent months thanks to the huge jackpots, and the third largest-ever pot

was enough reason to buy again. “The more it keeps increasing, that means nobody is winning ... a lot of people are gonna keep buying tickets and tickets and tickets and you never know, you just might get lucky if you pick the right numbers,” she said. A recent game change intended to build excitement about the lottery increased the frequency of huge jackpots, and Wednesday’s jackpot drawing comes only a few months after the biggest Powerball jackpot in history – a $590 million pot won in Florida by an 84-year-old widow. The second largest Powerball jackpot was won in November and split between two tickets

from Arizona and Missouri. With a majority of the top 10 Powerball jackpots being reached in the last five years, lottery officials acknowledge smaller jackpots don’t create the buzz they once did. “We certainly do see what we call jackpot fatigue,” said Chuck Strutt, executive director of the Multi-State Lottery Association. “I’ve been around a long time and remember when a $10 million jackpot in Illinois brought long lines and people from surrounding states to play that game.” Tom Romero, CEO of the New Mexico Lottery and chairman of the Powerball Group, agreed. “Many years ago, $100 mil-

lion was really exciting and people would immediately buy more, occasional players would start buying,” he said. “Then the threshold was $200 million. Now, we see here in New Mexico, we’re approaching the $300 million mark.” The revamp of Powerball in January 2012 changed the price of a ticket from $1 to $2, a move that upped the chances of the game reaching a major jackpot. There was a loss in the number of players, but the new game – which also created more chances to win smaller $1 million and $2 million prizes – has brought in 52 percent more in sales, Strutt said. Sales were $5.9 billion in the fiscal year that ended in June.

Women sue Boys & Girls Clubs, alleging sex abuse By DON BABWIN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Two women are suing the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago and a former counselor charged with sexually assaulting them when they were minors, contending that years before he allegedly coerced them into engaging in sexual acts with him and others, the club’s director learned he’d acted inappropriately with another girl. Zale Hoddenbach, 44, is awaiting trial on felony charges of criminal sexual as-

sault, criminal sexual abuse and child pornography. Steven Rosenberg, the attorney for the women, said the charges stem from the incidents involving his clients, who are both 18. In the lawsuit, which was filed Tuesday in Cook County Court, one of the women alleges that Hoddenbach “used physical and verbal intimidation to force (her) to engage in sexual acts with him,” alleging that she had sex with him after he threatened to post nude pictures of him on Facebook if she did not. She also alleges that he vowed to “post her

nude photos online” if she told police or anyone else what happened. The same woman says Hoddenbach had her photograph him having sex with another woman and then “pressed her” to have sexual contact with the woman while he photographed them. The other woman alleges that when she was 15, Hoddenbach showed her videos of him having sex and told her to touch him in a sexual manner, which she did. She says he ordered her not to tell anyone. Neither the Boys & Girls

In fact, according to Rosenberg, Hoddenbach was hired because of his criminal record, something that was well known and was included in a New York Times Magazine story about an anti-violence group in Chicago called CeaseFire. In the story, Hoddenbach was identified as a former gang member working for CeaseFire as a “violence interrupter.” “This was their street smart program and he was

Clubs of Chicago nor the national headquarters in Atlanta responded to phone messages Thursday seeking comment. A phone number for Hoddenbach, who the sheriff’s department said posted bail in February, had been disconnected. A Chicago attorney who was identified as Hoddenbach’s lawyer in 2011 news reports didn’t immediately return Thursday calls for comment. The women also allege that Hoddenbach was hired even though he had an extensive criminal record that included felony convictions and prison

hired because he could speak from authority about being a gang banger,” said Rosenberg. The lawsuit alleges that at least three years before the 2010 and 2011 incidents, the director of the club received complaints that Hoddenbach had on a number of occasions showed a 14-year-old girl pornographic videos on his cell phone and had sent her several text messages telling her that he loved her. The complaints were subsequently dismissed as “unfounded,” according to the lawsuit.

An FBI agent watches as the house where three women were held captive and raped for more than a decade is demolished Wednesday in Cleveland.

Cleveland house in kidnap, rape case is demolished as spectators applaud By THOMAS J. SHEERAN The Associated Press CLEVELAND – With several swipes from the arm of an excavator and applause from spectators, a house where three women were held captive and raped for a decade was demolished Wednesday, reduced to rubble in less than an hour and a half. The demolition had the look of a neighborhood celebration, but some residents have been troubled by guilt for failing to notice telltale signs of the women’s imprisonment, like windows boarded up from the inside and the kidnapper’s practice of keeping visitors from going past the front room. “It’s haunted them, I think, in the sense of how could they not have known,” said city Councilman Brian Cummins, who watched the demolition. The home was torn down as part of the plea deal that spared Ariel Castro a possible death sentence and forced

him to turn over the deed to the house and pay for it to be razed. He was sentenced last week to life in prison plus 1,000 years. One of the imprisoned women, Michelle Knight, showed up early Wednesday before the work began. She made a brief statement and released balloons into the air. “Dear Lord, give the missing people strength and power to know that they are loved,” said Knight, who had rosary beads hanging from her neck. “We hear their cry. They are never forgotten in my heart. They are caterpillars, waiting to turn into a butterfly. They are never forgotten, they are loved.” Knight said the array of balloons “represents all the millions of children that were never found and the ones that passed away that were never heard.” There was applause as a relative of one victim represented the three and took the controls of the wrecking crane

for the first smash into the top of the front wall. Later, as the house debris disappeared into the basement, church bells rang. Police kept bystanders back to prevent souvenir hunting for the debris, which was carted off in trucks. Rich Comp, 51, who used to live two doors from the Castro house, said he was sorry about the ordeal of the victims and hopes the demolition will help lift spirits. “I feel sorry for the girls. They should tear it down,” he said. Art McKoy, an anti-crime crusader who has organized vigils for missing persons, watched the demolition and wondered why residents hadn’t questioned the house’s barricades. “The neighbors, if they had just paid a little more attention, and looked a little bit harder, they would have seen more and maybe we could have brought this to an end,” McKoy said.

barred for life from entering the U.S. Flores pleaded guilty in 2010 to felony criminal sexual abuse and sentenced to four years in prison. He abused the boy while working at St. Mary’s Church in West Chicago. The Joliet Diocese has previously said the process to expel Flores from the priesthood is underway in Rome.

Miller said there is reward money available. He asks anyone with information to call the Lake County Crime Stoppers.

CHICAGO – Fifteen former Boy Scouts from the Chicago suburb of Burbank filed a lawsuit Wednesday alleging that the organization failed to protect them from a scout leader who was later convicted of molestation. The lawsuit filed in Cook County Circuit Court names the Boy Scouts of America and the group’s Chicago Area Council. It was filed by unnamed men – all referred to as “John Doe” – who were members of the same troop from 1980 until 1987. A 16th former scout sued late last year. Lawyers said all 16 were sexually abused by Thomas Hacker when they were between the ages of 10 and 13 and that the Boy Scouts knew about previous abuse allegations against Hacker but allowed him to continue working with children. Hacker, 76, was convicted in 1989 of molesting three boys and sentenced to two concurrent 50-year prison terms. When he was arrest-

AURORA – An autopsy is set to be performed on the body of a man that was found floating in the Fox River in Aurora. Wednesday’s autopsy by the Kane County Coroner is expected to offer clues about how the man died. He was found face down by a dam on Tuesday afternoon by a cyclist. The Daily Herald said the 38-year-old man’s name isn’t being released. There were no signs of trauma and officials aren’t sure how he got into the water. The Aurora Beacon-News reported the man’s body likely hadn’t been in the river for a lengthy period of time.

19 BB guns stolen from Illinois state natural area ANTIOCH – Officials say they’re looking for help identifying the thieves of 19 high-end BB guns stolen from a cabin at a state natural area in northern Illinois. Authorities say the guns were taken from the Redwing SloughDeer Lake State Natural Area near Antioch. The News-Sun in Waukegan reported that the Avanti 499 guns sell for $140 and some of them had expensive sights. The guns are used during outdoor youth events. Chuck Miller is a former Antioch police chief and was hired by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to manage the 720-acre preserve.

New Ill. laws crack down on domestic violence CHICAGO – Gov. Pat Quinn has signed laws cracking down on domestic violence and for aiding victims. One of the bills toughens penalties for repeat offenders. It classifies subsequent offenses as felonies and increases prison time to as much as 14 years for four or more convictions. Currently, many domestic violence cases are considered misdemeanors. The law takes effect Jan. 1. Joliet Democratic Sen. Pat McGuire sponsored the legislation. He said it “sends domestic abusers a strong message.” One of the other laws signed by Quinn requires school districts to have policies for responding to teen dating violence. It takes effect immediately. A third bill aims to protect victims covered by their abuser’s insurance policy. It allows insurance companies to communicate with victims without informing their abuser.

The arrest led to a felony conviction, yet Hacker resurfaced as a scoutmaster in the Chicago suburbs in 1971 and by the end of that year had been arrested again. Hurley said Hacker moved from council to council over two decades. Court documents say the men had repressed memories and came forward after information about Hacker resurfaced after the Oregon Supreme Court ordered the public release of 14,500 pages of secret files, which showed the organization had long sought to protect its reputation by shielding scoutmasters and others accused of molesting children.

Obama cancels Putin summit amid Snowden tensions The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Already faltering, President Barack Obama’s five-year effort to reboot U.S.-Russian relations finally crashed Wednesday, as the White House abruptly canceled his planned face-toface summit with Russia’s Vladimir Putin. The effort to upgrade the relationship has fallen victim to the rapidly shrinking common ground between the former Cold War rivals, including extreme differences over

certainly herald a new frostiness in already chilly ties. “We have informed the Russian government that we believe it would be more constructive to postpone the summit until we have more results from our shared agenda,” the White House said in a statement, citing deep differences over missile defense, arms control, trade, global security and human rights. “Russia’s disappointing decision to grant Edward Snowden temporary asylum was also a factor that we considered in

the Syrian civil war, Russia’s domestic crackdown on civil rights and – the final straw – the asylum granted to NSA leaker Edward Snowden. The U.S. and Russian foreign and defense ministers will sit down in Washington later this week, but Obama canceled his planned early September summit in Moscow with Putin because of what the White House called a lack of “recent progress” on a wide array of critical issues. Such steps are not taken lightly, and the decision will almost

The Kremlin responded quickly, voicing its own disappointment with the canceled summit and blaming it on Washington’s inability to develop relations with Moscow on an “equal basis.” Putin’s foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, added that the decision was “clearly linked” to the Snowden case, a situation that he said wasn’t of Russia’s making. While Snowden might

have been the immediate catalyst for canceling the summit, the seeds of renewed U.S.-Russia discord were planted more than a year ago when Putin retook the Russian presidency. On returning to power, he adopted a deeply nationalistic and more openly confrontational stance toward the United States than had his chosen successor Dmitry Medvedev, whose 2008-2012 tenure roughly overlapped Obama’s first term in the White House. Where Medvedev abstained in a U.N. Security

Council vote that authorized NATO airstrikes in Libya, Putin has refused repeated entreaties from Washington to allow the world body to impose even minimal sanctions on President Bashar Assad’s Syria. At the same time, Putin’s government has continued to supply its ally Assad with weapons. And it has not delivered on pledges to coax Assad into sending representatives to talks with the opposition aimed at finding a political solution to the Syrian conflict.

Lawyer says Hasan intent on getting death sentence That strategy, he argued, “is repugnant to defense counsel and contrary to our professional obligations.” Poppe said he and the other standby lawyers want to take over the case, or if Hasan is allowed to continue on his own, they want their roles minimized so that Hasan couldn’t ask them for help with a strategy they oppose. Hasan repeatedly objected, telling the judge: “That’s a twist of the facts.” The exchange prompted the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, to halt the long-delayed trial on only its second day. She must now decide what to do next, knowing that all moves she makes will be scrutinized by a military justice system that has overturned most soldiers’ death sentences in the last three decades. Hasan faces a possible death sentence if convicted of the 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated for the

Friend: Calif. man suspected of abduction had crush on girl By ELLIOT SPAGAT The Associated Press LAKESIDE, Calif. – A man suspected of abducting a 16-year-old girl told her he had a crush on her and would date her if they were the same age, a friend of the girl said Wednesday as police searched for the man who is also wanted in the death of the girl’s mother and possibly her 8-year-old brother. Marissa Chavez, 15, said James Lee DiMaggio explained that he didn’t want the girls to think he was weird in an effort to defend himself after noticing they exchanged glances. She said he spoke while driving them home from a high school gymnastics meet a couple months ago. Hannah Anderson asked Chavez to join her from then on whenever DiMaggio, 40, drove her to meets. “She was a little creeped out by it. She didn’t want to be alone with him,” Chavez said. DiMaggio was like an uncle to Hannah and 8-year-old Ethan. He was very close with their parents for years. On Sunday night, authorities found the body of 42-yearold Christina Anderson when they extinguished flames at DiMaggio’s rural home. A child’s body was found as they sifted through rubble in Boule-

Tuesday night, said DiMaggio argued with her friend when he took her to Hollywood in late June or early July for her birthday. DiMaggio was upset that Hannah was “paying more attention to posting pictures (on her phone) than talking to him.” “He got upset and ended the trip early,” Chavez said. Brett Anderson, who flew from Tennessee to San Diego on Tuesday, pleaded with DiMaggio to release his daughter, saying, “You’ve taken everything else.” “Jim, I can’t fathom what you were thinking. The damage is done,” he said outside San Diego County Sheriff’s Department headquarters after being interviewed by investigators Tuesday. DiMaggio is wanted on suspicion of murder and arson in a search that began in Southern California and spread to Mexico and neighboring states. Brett Anderson joined hundreds of family friends and neighbors at the vigil in the parking lot of El Capitan High School in Lakeside, where Hannah was about to start her junior year. Pink paper cups stuffed between holes in the fence read, “Pray Hannah,” and dozens of white, powder blue and pink balloons lifted into the air.

vard, a tiny town 65 miles east of San Diego on the U.S.-Mexico border. The child’s body has not been identified but it may be Ethan, sheriff’s Lt. Glenn Giannantonio said late Tuesday. Christina Anderson’s father, Christopher Saincome, said Wednesday that his daughter visited DiMaggio’s home last weekend to say goodbye before he moved to Texas. DiMaggio, who works as a telecommunications technician at The Scripps Research Institute in San Diego, was a regular presence at the Anderson family apartment in Lakeside, a suburb of 54,000 people. “He must have had this planned,” Saincome said. Saincome said nothing seemed amiss when he called his daughter at work Friday to let her know she didn’t call on his birthday. Anderson, a medical assistant, said she would call back that night but never did. Investigators say DiMaggio may be headed to Texas or Canada with one child or both. They had no evidence that the relationship between DiMaggio and the missing girl was more than friendly. “We’re not looking into that directly at this point,” Giannantonio said.

FORT HOOD, Texas – On the first day Maj. Nidal Hasan went on trial in a fight for his life, he claimed responsibility for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood. He posed no questions to most witnesses. He said the alleged murder weapon was his, even though no one asked. The Army psychiatrist sometimes took notes while acting as his own attorney, but he mostly looked forward impassively and rarely asked for help as witness after witness said he was the shooter. By Wednesday, the lawyers ordered to help him said they’d had enough – they couldn’t watch him fulfill a death wish. “It becomes clear his goal is to remove impediments or obstacles to the death penalty and is working toward a death penalty,” his lead standby attorney, Lt. Col. Kris Poppe, told the judge.

attack on the Texas military post. “I don’t envy her. She’s on the horns of a dilemma here,” said Richard Rosen, a law professor at Texas Tech University and former military prosecutor who attended the first two days of trial. “I think whatever she does is potentially dangerous, at least from the view of an appellate court.” Rosen and other experts said that if Osborn allows Poppe and Hasan’s other standby defense attorneys to take over, the judge could be seen as having unfairly denied Hasan’s right to defend himself, a right guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. But if she lets Hasan continue defending himself, she could be depriving him of adequate help from experienced attorneys. He also noted that it’s extremely rare for defendants to represent themselves in military court.

Yemen’s government says it uncovers al-Qaida plots The ASSOCIATED PRESS SANAA, Yemen – Military and intelligence officials in Yemen said Wednesday they uncovered an al-Qaida plot to fire missiles at foreign embassies in the capital and to attack naval forces guarding international shipping in the Red Sea. Details of the plot, which

Airport fire in Kenya swells to an inferno The ASSOCIATED PRESS NAIROBI, Kenya – A small fire at Kenya’s main airport swelled into a roaring inferno Wednesday that destroyed part of East Africa’s largest aviation hub and hampered air travel across the continent. Firefighters were desperately short of equipment in an area where the county government apparently lacks a single working fire engine. Crews needed hours to get the flames under control and at one point resorted to a line of officers passing water buckets. The early morning blaze gutted the arrival hall, forcing authorities to close the entire airport and airlines to cancel dozens of flights. The flames also charred airport banks and foreign exchange bureaus. No serious injuries were reported. The fire broke out on the 15th anniversary of the bombings by al-Qaida of the U.S. embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam, in neighboring Tanzania. No terror connection to the fire was immediately evident, but the blaze revived long-standing safety concerns about Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. A statement from Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta said the cause of the fire was being investigated and that “there is no reason to speculate at this point.” Kenya’s anti-terror police boss, Boniface Mwaniki, said he was waiting for more information before completely ruling out terrorism. Authorities last week shut down several duty-free shops at the airport, and some Kenyan media reports speculated that disgruntled parties from the forced closings may have had motive to carry out an arson attack. No government official made such an accusation Wednesday. International airlines, including South African Airways, Etihad and Emirates, canceled flights to Nairobi. Qatar Air said its Nairobi flights were being rerouted to the Kilimanjaro airport in Tanzania. The domestic and departure terminals, which are separated from the arrivals hall by a road, were undamaged. By the end of the day, the airport reopened for domestic and cargo flights but remained closed to international flights. Officials planned to convert a domestic-flight area into an international terminal for the time being. No U.S. carriers fly direct to Nairobi. Delta Air Lines, based in Atlanta, tried to open such a route in 2009, but the Transportation Security Administration rejected the plan because of security concerns. Nairobi County does not have a single working fire engine, the Daily Nation, a Nairobi newspaper, reported last month. One engine, the paper said, was auctioned in 2009 because the county had not paid a $100 repair bill. An Associated Press reporter at the airport Wednesday saw uniformed officers line up with buckets in hand, apparently to battle the blaze. Many of the units that battled Wednesday’s fire were from private security firms and had to fight airport traffic to get there.

was reminiscent of the suicide attack on the USS Cole in 2000 that killed 17 American sailors, emerged as Yemen remains in a heightened state of alert that has seen the U.S. and British embassies evacuated and a new suspected U.S. drone strike that killed seven alleged militants from the terrorist group.

The discovery of the al-Qaida plot prompted the Defense Ministry to step up security around the strategic Bab el-Mandeb waterway, which connects the Red Sea with the Gulf of Aden. Officials banned speedboats or fishing vessels from the area, and military forces have been ordered to shoot to kill anybody who

arouses suspicion or refuses to identify themselves. Defense Minister Gen. Mohammed Nasser Ahmed visited the area Sunday and urged forces, known as Battalion 117, to stay on high alert for possible suicide attacks, according to officials who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they

were not authorized to talk to the media. An estimated 3.5 million barrels of oil passed daily in 2010 through the Bab el-Mandeb strait, increasing the strategic importance of impoverished Yemen, which itself has a small production of oil and natural gas. Revenue from oil and gas production is declin-

ing, worsening Yemen’s ability to provide social services. The militants from the terrorist group’s Yemeni branch – known as al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula – also were said to be plotting to use long-range missiles to target embassies and diplomats’ residences, or try to take foreigners as hostages, the officials said.

Let voters have choice We’ve been critical of the McHenry County Board over the past couple of years for failing to ask voters if they’d prefer to popularly elect the board chairman at the ballot box. Today, we’ll offer some accolades after learning that the board’s Management Services Committee may advance a referendum that would do exactly that. There’s still plenty of work For the record to do before a referendum gets We encourage the County before voters. But Board to let voters decide the County Board, whether the board chairman at least, is moving should be popularly elected. in the right direction. Under the current process, voters elect their County Board representatives by district – four each in six geographic districts. Every two years, the County Board members themselves elect their chairman. The Northwest Herald and others, notably state Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, have called on the County Board to let voters decide if they’d prefer to change the current system and elect the chairman during a countywide election. Under the existing system, the County Board chairman is accountable only to the voters in her district and the 23 other County Board members. If popularly elected countywide, the chairman would be accountable to all McHenry County voters. There are arguments – positive and negative – for either system. Once the full County Board votes to put the item on the ballot (the next election is in March 2014), we’ll explore all sides in more detail. Regardless, we feel strongly that voters should have that choice. If the referendum gets on the ballot, perhaps voters will reject it and decide to keep the current system. Or perhaps they’ll decide to make the County Board chairman accountable to all voters. But at least it will be voters making the decision. We encourage the County Board to finalize the language of the referendum, making it as clear as possible, and voting to put it on the March 2014 ballot.

Want fries with that? The U.S. Department of Labor is reporting that the nation’s employers produced 162,000 new jobs in July, generally considered a disappointing number, with average wages and the length of the workweek taking a dip, too. More than half of the growth was in low-end jobs, such as those at McDonald’s, for instance. There are some real disconnects today in America, where there is no such thing as earning too much for some and conversely no such thing as making too little for those who tend to toil for them. We hear a lot about class warfare these days, and how the Obama administration in particular has poured fuel on that fire for greedy personal gain. There may be something to that, but it would seem that those who no longer have to worry about whether the American Dream is within their reach have been firing a few missiles of their own in that conflict.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Roskam on immigration To the Editor: The Senate has completed its version of immigration reform. Unfortunately, it did not go through an orderly and public committee process, but was instead invented by the “Gang of Eight.” A bill with thousands of pages crafted with no public review reminds me of something else – health care, which now is being delayed as its consequences are coming out. Remember that Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who was speaker in 2010, said the way to know what was in it was to pass it. This is hardly the way to pass legislation as important as immigration. Much of the publicity on immigration reform has been about its effect on the immigrants themselves – past and future, documented and undocumented. We also need to understand how it will play out for American workers and affect our health care and education systems, as well as how it will help employers. The public needs to have some confidence that our government will work for them and not against them. We need to see the process. Congressman Peter Roskam, R-Ill., has written that he thinks immigration reform should be handled in smaller chunks, addressing some of the more pressing issues – like our border security – first before dealing with other aspects of the debate, and I agree. Once the question of our border security has been addressed, we can proceed to other steps. I’m

thankful my congressman is taking a level-headed approach to a complex and important issue. You have my support, Peter. James R. Thompson Crystal Lake

Corrupt by design To the Editor: We all know that Illinois is one of the most corrupt states in the Union, with one governor in jail, another having just left, and a congressman and his former Chicago alderwoman wife about to join him. Then there is the scandal brewing over the Metra board and alleged attempts by House Speaker Michael Madigan to strong-arm the executive director for raises and jobs for supporters, as if this is the normal course of business. That’s because it is the normal course of business. What most people don’t know is that Illinois is not merely corrupt because of the foibles of human nature. It is corrupt by design. Long ago, both political parties decided to divide Illinois into bailiwicks for each, with the Democrats being given Chicago and downstate, and the Republicans getting everything else. County governments were deliberately designed to allow for patronage safe havens for each party to reward their friends, punish their enemies, and line their own pockets. State statutes and local county rules cement this environment for backroom deals and “one hand

washes the other” practices to flourish. We can’t do much about our state’s statutes, but we can do something about our local county rules. Later this month our County Board will be voting on rules changes aimed at curing some of these abuses. I urge all readers of this paper to call their County Board representatives and urge approval of those changes. Michael Walkup County Board District 3, R-Crystal Lake

No pay is right response To the Editor: There have been complaints from state representatives about Gov. Quinn withholding their paychecks until the pension crisis has been resolved. Even with a majority in both houses, the Democrats seem unable to get the job done. I think Quinn has the right idea. Elected officials aren’t doing their jobs, so why pay them? The rest of us expect to perform to get paid. When I was let go from my job a couple of years ago, I had

no recourse because Illinois is an “at-will” state. Briefly, that means if your employer doesn’t like the way you part your hair, he can fire you. Apparently, performance has nothing to do with it, since I’d been helping them turn a profit for years. Shortly after my termination, I stopped by the offices of my two representatives, Rep. Mike Tryon and Sen. Pam Althoff. They weren’t in, so I left my question with the receptionist and asked for a response. Who benefits from “at-will” laws? It’s not a terribly complicated question, so I was surprised when I got no response. Presumably there is an answer. In my view, as a citizen, I am the boss of my elected officials. They report to me. By not even acknowledging my question, they failed in their duties and gave me cause to fire them. I’m with the governor on this issue: No pay is the right response to no performance. As this is an “at will” state, they are lucky not to be fired. Nat Leighton Crystal Lake

Grandma turns 103 and does she have stories to tell GALESBURG – I went to a special birthday party over the weekend. My grandmother, Eva Reeder, turned 103. It was an interesting party. After all, I’ve never met, yet alone known, a 103-year-old before. Too often, people my grandmother’s age are not as mentally sharp as they once were, even though their bodies have managed to hang on. Not so with my grandmother. Grandma Eva Grandma is sharp. She loves to recite poetry, reads constantly and hasn’t voted for a Democrat since Franklin Roosevelt in 1932. (She didn’t like the New Deal but thought it was high time to get rid of Prohibition.) She is also the oldest resident at the Knox County Nursing Home. Whenever I visit her, I’m struck

by the fact that most of her fellow residents are a full generation younger. Before she was admitted to the home, I never considered nursing homes to be multigenerational spots. Now I know. She was born into a nation much different from today’s America: • The American flag had 46 stars – New Mexico, Arizona, Hawaii and Alaska hadn’t been admitted to the Union yet. • Like 95 percent of the babies born in 1910, she was delivered at home. • The average life expectancy in the United States was 47. • There were only 8,000 cars in the United States and only 144 miles of paved roads. • Only 14 percent of the homes in the United States had a bathtub. That final point was brought home for me when I helped my grandmother clean out her basement a few years ago and came across a small, galvanized wash tub. Grandma explained that she heated

She learned to cook on a woodstove and was still cooking on one well into middle age.

When one passes 100, memories become more important. Grandma spends far more time today remembering and almost no time planning. She still calls Memorial Day, Decoration Day – because as a child that was the day one decorated the graves of the Union war dead. She was born only 45 years after the Civil War. And veterans of that conflict were her neighbors. She remembers doughboys coming home from World War I with their campaign hats and khaki uniforms. Her neighbors burned the Kaiser in effigy. Another 24 years later, she learned of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor while milking a cow. My then-10-year-old father raced into the barn to tell her the news

after hearing it on the radio. Grandma Eva was in her 30s before she lived in a house that had either electricity or indoor plumbing. And well into her adulthood she was still working fields with horses. It’s mind-boggling to think she knew folks who voted for fellow Illinoisan Abraham Lincoln. But by far the most important historical event to shape her life was the Great Depression. For 48 years, she has been telling me another depression is coming. And her life of frugality has been a testimony to her concern over future financial calamity. But Grandma’s riches aren’t stored in a bank or vulnerable to a financial downturn. Her riches are stored in her heart, in her love for God, her family and her country. Happy birthday, Grandma.

U.S. institute: N. Korea expanding nuclear plant By GEORGE JAHN The Associated Press VIENNA – A U.S. institute tracking North Korea’s nuclear weapons program says recent satellite photos show Pyongyang is doubling the size of its uranium enrichment plant, jibing with the country’s announced plans to expand technology that can be used both to create energy and the core of nuclear weapons. The imagery comes from two sources, satellite companies Digital Globe and Astrium Geoinformation Services, and was seen by The Associated Press ahead of publication by the Institute for Science and International Security on Wednesday. In an accompanying note, ISIS said the photos of the Nyongbyon nuclear complex show construction under way to “effectively double” the size of the enrichment hall.

That, said ISIS, would allow North Korea to also double the number of centrifuges now enriching uranium. Revealing the existence of a uranium enrichment program three years ago, Pyongyang said the plant contained 2,000 centrifuges – machines that are linked up in series and spin uranium gas into material that can be used either to power reactors or arm nuclear weapons, depending on the degree of enrichment. That means the 4,000 centrifuges that the space is apparently being expanded for could potentially make twice that amount, giving them the capacity to build up to four bombs a year – should the country decide to use them for that purpose. The most recent satellite photo was taken July 28. ISIS says that measured against earlier images, it shows construction at the Nyongbyon

site, including “the expansion of the gas centrifuge building” to twice its previous size. The Washington-based think tank said the images indicate that work on the structure seems to have begun sometime in March. It cited a North Korean government announcement that came shortly afterward revealing plans for “readjusting and restarting all the nuclear facilities in Nyongbyon, including [the] uranium enrichment plant.” Government offices in Pyongyang that could comment were shut for the day ahead of publication of the ISIS report. A North Korean diplomat with his country’s mission to the United Nations in New York said he had no comment because he had not yet seen the report. He demanded anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about his country’s nuclear program.

Jourdan a RTA representative since ’08 • JOURDAN Continued from page A1 Jourdan, who has been the county’s RTA representative since 2008, said Wednesday he couldn’t comment until after he met with Hill. Jourdan spent 30 years as McHenry County Republican Party chairman between 1968 and 1998, and about three of those years as state chairman. Hill had postponed a July 2 vote to reappoint Jourdan to the 16-member RTA Board, which has financial oversight of the boards of Metra, Pace and the Chicago Transit Authority. The vote was scheduled in the wake of growing lawmaker outrage over a $718,000 severance package that the Metra Board granted to former CEO Alex Clifford with eight months remaining on his first contract. The day before, two McHenry County lawmakers – Democratic state Rep. Jack Franks and Republican Sen. Dan Duffy – urged the County Board to reject Jourdan in favor of someone “independent and reform-minded.” Franks said Wednesday that reappointing Jourdan would be an example of “goodold-boy crony politics continuing on in McHenry County.” “This is the very worst pos-

sible solution – to keep someone there who has been a part of a culture of lax oversight and lax accountability, which has fallen below the expectations of the taxpayers,” Franks said. The RTA promised to investigate the Clifford severance package. Its July 10 hearing was widely panned by critics who accused the RTA of lobbing softball questions at former Metra Board Chairman Brad O’Halloran and for failing to invite Clifford. But the RTA met with Clifford in a subsequent hearing July 17, in which he alleged that he was forced out because he would not acquiesce to political patronage requests. A scathing eight-page memo from Clifford accused O’Halloran and fellow board member Larry Huggins of wanting him gone because he refused a request by powerful House Speaker Michael Madigan to give a raise to one employee and to hire an unnamed person for another job. Clifford also wrote that he refused to fire employees at O’Halloran’s request and opposed contracting decisions by Huggins that Clifford called inappropriate regarding the Englewood Flyover rail bridge on Chicago’s South Side. O’Halloran and Huggins

both resigned last week, bringing to four the number of Metra Board members who have quit in the wake of the Clifford severance vote. Clifford was hired in 2011 to clean up the agency after the scandal surrounding former Metra CEO Phil Pagano, who killed himself before the board was set to fire him over taking $475,000 in unauthorized vacation payouts. The two RTA resignations are unrelated to Metra’s latest scandal. Kane County representative Nabi Fakroddin stepped down Tuesday after an RTA review concluded that state law forbade him from holding an RTA seat and a seat on the Illinois Human Rights Commission. The Rev. Tyrone Crider, who represented suburban Cook County, resigned July 31 after it became public that a judge ordered him to repay a $91,000 state services grant. A bill in the Illinois Senate seeks to merge the RTA with the less-known Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning. An RTA Board member earns a $25,000 salary. A Franks bill signed into law last month strips appointees to all four mass-transit boards of taxpayer subsidized health care, life insurance and accrual of pension benefits.

8WORLD BRIEF Egypt: Diplomacy has failed to resolve crisis

The government’s statements strongly suggested that Egypt’s sharp polarization may spiral into even more bloodshed as thousands of supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi, a longtime Brotherhood figure, camp out at two main Cairo intersections and hold daily protests outside security buildings.

CAIRO – Egypt’s military-backed interim leadership proclaimed Wednesday that a crackdown against two protest sites is inevitable, saying that nearly two weeks of foreign diplomatic efforts to resolve its standoff with the Muslim Brotherhood have failed.

At stake is stability in the Arab world’s most populous country. Already more than 250 people have been killed in violence since the military ousted Morsi last month, including at least 130 Brotherhood supporters in two major clashes between security forces and backers of the deposed president.

prey animals – meaning they respond to trauma with a fight-or-flight instinct – the mutual understanding and connection between patients and horses has been effective in the trauma patient’s treatment, Freund said. Healing Tales works with all trauma patients, but particularly abused and neglected children. It is a supplemental treatment that works in tandem with traditional mental health treatment, Freund said. Those who have experienced trauma may have a hard time keeping or rebuilding relationships with other people, Freund said, because if the trauma was caused by another person, the patient now subconsciously regards other people as predators. Traditional trauma therapy depends on when the incident happened and helps build and develop coping skills to improve the quality of the patient’s life. After that,

the patient reframes and accepts the event and begins to enhance his own life. However, it’s often difficult for them to talk about their feelings and experiences because the traumatic event is stored deep in the brain and becomes a subconscious phenomenon, Freund said. She once worked with a boy with Asperger’s syndrome who posed the same problem as a trauma patient. “The boy talked about horrible, horrible trauma – the death of multiple family members, being homeless – and talked about it like he was giving me a recipe for bread,” Freund said. “There was no emotion.” By the end of the boy’s treatment with the horses, he was able to start the obstacle courses by himself, instead of having Freund come with him, and the beginning of a

connection with Freund was starting to sprout. With Healing Tales, trauma patients learn how to refine or sometimes redevelop skills for building relationships by interacting with horses instead of other humans, Freund said. They then apply those skills to connect with other people in their life. Freund said Healing Tales’ theory of the connection of the mental development of child trauma survivors and horses’ social prey animal characteristics will be presented at the 2013 International Conference of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship. Patrick Snyder, community and alumni relations coordinator at Columbia College’s Crystal Lake campus, said Freund’s work and ongoing research with the human-horse relationship is bigger than the school itself. Freund’s bachelor’s degrees are from Columbia College. “It’s a dramatic story of how animals and human beings can help to heal each other,” Snyder said.

OVER 11 YEARS OF TRUSTED EXPERIENCE NCE “I wanted to take a moment to thank Joli for all her help and expertise she showed us during our recent visit to the clinic. Joli explained everything very thoroughly to us which made it very easy to decide on which hearing aid would work best for Mike. We had come to our appointment knowing little about hearing devices. All of our questions about hearing aid prices, services and maintenance were explained in great detail to us. Thank you so much to Joli for all your help. Mike is a very happy client.” Mike and Carol D.

POLICE SEEK 2 MEN IN CL ROBBERY CRYSTAL LAKE – Two men are on the loose after reportedly robbing a Crystal Lake business Wednesday morning. Around 9:45 a.m., two men entered Servitax, 459 S. Virginia St., “by threat of force with an implied weapon,” according to a news release from the Crystal Lake Police Department. They took an undetermined amount of money and several cellphones from an employee. The employee was not injured, and an actual weapon was never seen, the release said. The suspects fled the scene on foot. One of the men was described as being Hispanic, about 5 feet 5 inches tall with dark hair. He was wearing a red T-shirt and blue jeans. The description of the second man was not available. The event is being investigated by Crystal Lake police as an aggravated robbery. Authorities are requesting that anyone with information regarding the case call the Crystal Lake Police Department at 815-356-3620. Tips also can be texted anonymously to “TIP411” (847411) with the keyword “TIPCLPD” within the text message.

Mendoza lands interim job Former District 47 superintendent headed to Round Lake By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – After offering yearlong health insurance coverage as part of a resignation agreement, Crystal Lake School District 47 could save roughly $23,000 with former superintendent Donn Mendoza’s decision to

take an administrative position in Round Lake. Mendoza, who entered into a mutual resignation with District 47 in June, accepted the interim principal position at Round Lake High School on Monday, freeing District 47 of the health insurance obligation that could have lasted through

June 2014. Mendoza’s family insurance plan cost the district $1,936 a month, potentially totaling $23,232 if he did not find employment within a year of his resignation. A $27,870 lump-sum severance payment was made to Mendoza as part of the split. Constance Collins, su-

perintendent of Round Lake Area School District 116, said Mendoza quickly emerged as one of two finalists and stood out with his leadership experience as an administrator and teacher. The search process moved quickly after former Round

Gang member receives probation By CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – A reputed gang member was given intensive probation on an armed violence charge, although a McHenry County judge admitted the sentence was ordered with “great reservation.” Jose A. Dominguez, 20, of Harvard, previously pleaded guilty to the felony in a blind plea, meaning there was no agreement between attorneys on a possible sentence. Mob action charges were dropped with his guilty plea. McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather said Domin-

guez had one of “the worst past criminal histories the court has seen,” although she noted the felony for which he was sentenced on Wednesday was his only charge as an adult. Dominguez was charged in January with using a baseball bat to strike a fel-

low gang member in the head. Dominguez’s attorney, Special Public Defender Henry Sugden, said Dominguez was a “wannabe” gang member, and that his association was merely for protection. Assistant State’s Attorney Robert Zalud said Dominguez had a pattern of violent behavior, although he couldn’t go into detail about Dominguez’s criminal past because juvenile court records are sealed. Zalud admonished the man, telling him that being a gang member was “synonymous with being a coward.”

Zalud asked for a threeyear prison term, the minimum with a Class 2 felony. Before his sentence was handed down, Dominguez said he was done with street gangs and pleaded with the judge to give him the chance to prove he was a good person. Dominguez was given two years’ intensive probation, which means he must report to a probation officer, earn a GED, perform 200 hours of public service and complete 120 days of electronic monitoring. He is prohibited from having any association with known gang members.

CRYSTAL LAKE – Actions spoke louder than words for the Crystal Lake City Council, which voted against its own wishes on a major road project and fencing ordinance. After months of planning, engineering and public meetings with state transportation officials, Crystal Lake will not get the left-turn access at Crystal Lake Avenue and East Street that it fought to preserve, upsetting residents and board members. Erik Morimoto, director of building and engineering for Crystal Lake, said the Illinois Department of Transportation required median installation Ellen Brady t o p r o h i b i t Mueller eastbound traf- Councilwoman fic on Crystal Lake Avenue from taking left turns onto East Street and southbound traffic on East Street from taking left turns onto Crystal Lake Avenue. Resident Jim Tomasello said that while he understands the need to stop left turns off Crystal Lake Avenue onto East Street because of the train tracks, it should be a matter of enforcing the signs prohibiting those turns instead of blocking access both ways. “You have had many of us tell you this is not what we want,” Tomasello told council members. “There is no reason we can’t put signage up there and enforce it.” Resident Michelle Nelson echoed the frustration and said she was concerned that emergency vehicles would have a difficult time accessing the area. Councilwoman Ellen Brady Mueller floated the idea of disregarding IDOT’s mandate, which would forfeit the

Algonquin objects to proposed electronic billboard By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com ALGONQUIN – Village officials are objecting to a proposed electronic billboard along Route 31. The billboard has been proposed by Mixed Media and would be at Route 31 and Oakwood Court. It originally was presented before the county’s adoption of a moratorium on electronic signs. According to village

documents, the state’s attorney’s office has advised county officials that they must consider the request. According to Mixed Media’s application for a variance, the company is asking to be allowed to have a 10foot setback rather than the required 35-foot setback for a sign that is 35 feet tall. The county’s zoning officer is set to have a hearing on the issue Thursday. However, the final decision to

allow the variance lies with the County Board, county Planning and Development Director Dennis Sandquist said. The county notified the village of the proposal because the unincorporated area is within 1.5 miles of the municipality’s borders. Mixed Media last year applied for a variance to allow for the same sign to be 65 feet instead of the 100 feet from the adjacent residen-

tial zoning district for a sign greater than 150 square feet. That petition was withdrawn, and the sign and site plan since has been reconfigured to this current petition, according to a report written by county Associate Planner Kimberly Kolner. Russell Farnum, community development director for Algonquin, said at a Village Board meeting this

See BILLBOARD, page B4

Dennis Sandquist, McHenry County planning and development director, said despite a hearing set for Thursday, the decision to approve Mixed Media’s request for a variance belongs to the McHenry County Board.

McHENRY COUNTY: SAFE DRINKING WATER MONTH

Reduced-fee water testing offered in August NORTHWEST HERALD WOODSTOCK – In honor of Safe Drinking Water Month, the McHenry County Department of Health will offer reduced-fee water testing for individual well water users during August. Residents can have their well water sampled for coliform bacteria

and nitrate for $18. Testing wells regularly is the only way to determine if well water is safe to drink because many contaminants are colorless and odorless. Water from a public or municipal water system is regularly tested for contaminants regulated by federal and state standards.

The health department will test water from private wells for nuisance chemicals resulting in water hardness, iron, discoloration and odor. Additional charges will apply. Sampling kits can be picked up at health department locations in Woodstock, Crystal Lake or at one of eight drop-off centers. Samples can

Westbound traffic will be shifted to the new pavement on the south side of Johnsburg Road. Construction signs and new pavement markings will be placed Friday morning. Eastbound traffic on Johnsburg Road will continue to be rerouted along Route 31 to Route 120 to Chapel Hill Road. The work is part of the ongoing effort to widen Johnsburg Road from Route 31 to just west of the St. Johns Avenue and Chapel Hill Road intersection to three lanes with one lane in each direction and a center lane for turning. Traffic signals also will be installed at Riverside Drive and Spring Grove Road, and the hills west of Riverside Drive have been lowered to improve driver visibility.

McHENRY COUNTY: DRIVE SOBER OR GET PULLED OVER

Office plans special enforcement NORTHWEST HERALD WOODSTOCK – The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office will be out in force from Aug. 16 through Labor Day as part of the annual Illinois “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown on drunken drivers. McHenry County deputies will be looking for drunken drivers and seat-belt law violators. Although a blood-alcohol

content of 0.08 percent is the legal limit in all 50 states, many people across the nation still get behind the wheel after consuming too much alcohol. “ E v e r y Andrew year in IlliZinke nois, about one-third of all motor vehicle traffic deaths involve one or

more drunk drivers or motorcycle operators,” Undersheriff Andrew Zinke said in a news release. “In addition, the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office will be stepping up seat belt law enforcement, especially during the ... late night hours when seat belt use is lowest.” The crackdown is funded by federal traffic safety funds through the Illinois Department of Transportation.

JOHNSBURG: YACHT CLUB

JOHNSBURG: BUDGET ADDITIONS

Thursday, August 8, 2013 • Page B3

Sailing school looks Police subscribe to faster crime lab to expand offerings Also will add 2 News to your phone By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com JOHNSBURG – Its first season complete, the Community Sailing School @ Pistakee is looking to raise money to expand its programming. The century-old Pistakee Yacht Club rebranded and opened up its sailing school this summer. A founding committee invested in new boats, brought in three paid staff members and successfully put 60-plus students through its classes. Programs are available for children 6 years old to adults, and scholarships are offered to economically disadvantaged kids. The next step is coordinating an accredited STEM (Science, Technology, Engineer-

ing and Mathematics) class and setting up a competitive sailing team that could draw students from different high schools in the area. “If we can raise enough money to buy the boats, we can get [the club] going this fall,” said Tom Kartheiser, the committee’s chairman. “It’s a bit of a stretch, but we’re not giving up. We have 80 people coming this weekend.” A fundraiser – a formal dinner that will showcase what the school’s students have learned – is planned for Saturday at the club, 3300 Rocky Beach Lane. Proceeds will go toward the new programming. Tickets are no longer for sale, but donations can be made at the school’s website, www.commsailpistakee.org.

JOHNSBURG – Four months passed before the Johnsburg Police Department heard back from the state crime lab on a burglary case. It took six months to get the results on a 2010 sexual assault. When 16 anonymous cards were sent to people connected to St. John the Baptist Catholic School, the Johnsburg Police Department sent the letters to the State Police Crime Lab to run the fingerprints. The wait had Johnsburg Police Chief Keith Von Allmen wondering if the issue could have been wrapped up

McHENRY COUNTY: NATIONAL IMMUNIZATION AWARENESS MONTH

As students prepare for new year, county encourages immunizations NORTHWEST HERALD WOODSTOCK – August is National Immunization Awareness Month. The McHenry County Department of Health joins the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in highlighting the importance of immunizations throughout life. Vaccines are among the most successful and cost-effective public health tools available for preventing disease and death. Because of the success of vaccines in preventing diseases, parents may not have heard of some of today’s vaccines or the serious diseases they prevent. Diseases such as pertussis (or whooping cough), which

is highly contagious, can be especially serious for infants and young children. According to the CDC, Illinois ranked sixth in the nation in 2012 with 1,859 reported pertussis cases. McHenry County reported a record 299 cases of whooping cough that year among school-aged children, following an ongoing outbreak from 2011 (169 cases). For students entering sixth through 12th grade for the 2013-14 school year, parents are required to show proof of receiving one Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccination, have an appointment to get the vaccine or have an approved medical or religious exemption on

file. Continued vaccination is necessary to protect not only children, but entire communities by preventing potential outbreaks. For the 2013 infant immunizations schedule, visit http://www. cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/ easy-to-read/child.html. The specific vaccines adults need are determined by factors such as age, lifestyle, risk conditions, locations of travel and previous vaccines. All adults should talk to their health care providers about what vaccines are right for them. For information on vaccinations, contact the health department at 815-334-4500 or visit www.mcdh.info.

before the school’s spring break ended had the village still subscribed to the Northeastern Illinois Regional Crime Lab in Vernon Hills. The full-service crime lab, funded by a consortium of area departments, was cut from the village’s budget in 2009 due because of the recession. The village switched to the state police crime lab, which does not charge any fees. But the turnaround at the state police crime lab has lengthened, Von Allmen said. Results from the pay-for lab

can be returned in 5 days to a month. He requested the village rejoin the Northeastern Illinois Regional Crime Lab as well as add two new full-time officers to the payroll. “The public expects us to provide them a certain level of service,” Von Allmen said. “If you could imagine the victim of an assault having to wait six months to get results, I personally find that unacceptable.” The Johnsburg Village Board approved the additions in its latest budget, adding $240,000 to the police department’s $1.4 million budget. Von Allmen referred questions on how the changes affected the overall budget to Village Administrator Claudett Peters, who did not return multiple calls for comment. Von Allmen expects to

have one officer hired in the “near future.” He needs to have the Village Board officially create the position and run candidates through background, polygraph, physical, psychological and drug tests. The other officer would be hired at the beginning of next year, Von Allmen said. The department currently has eight full-time officers, eight part-time officers, an office clerk and one part-time community service and code officer. One full-time officer was cut in 2007 as the village grappled with shrinking budgets. Johnsburg has 1.3 fulltime officers for every thousand residents, according to a presentation Von Allmen made to the board. The average for area departments is 1.8. The two new officers will bring the village’s rate up to 1.6.

County scheduled to vote on extended moratorium • BILLBOARD Continued from page B1 week that it has been village policy to object to new billboards within a mile and a half of its borders. “Village staff does not see any hardship justification for the variation request,” Farnum wrote in a memo to Village Board members. The resolution sent by the village says “billboards create visual blight and clutter and

distract drivers and detract from the natural beauty of the county.” The county is looking to extend a moratorium on electronic billboards, which was first put in place in September. The County Board is scheduled to vote on whether to extend the moratorium for nine more months at its Sept. 17 meeting. The moratorium is in place as it continues to work on a unified development ordinance.

D-116: Public troubles not a concern

Continued from page B1 state funding for the Crystal Lake Avenue project, while Councilman Jeff Thorsen criticized the entire process. “If IDOT can dictate all this, why do I even vote on it?” he asked. “What’s the point?” Although he agreed with the frustration, Mayor Aaron Shepley said the process was followed and city staff did all it could to provide alternatives. But he said it would be wise to approve plans from experts on road engineering. “None of us here are engineers ... the people who do this Cathy for a living Ferguson Councilwoman are telling us we need to do it in this fashion,” Shepley said. “Fact is, we don’t have a choice.” Shortly before approving the median on Crystal Lake Avenue, council members struggled with an issue where they did have a choice. Despite speaking highly of a proposal to install a 4-foot-high, opaque fence from a pair of residents on the 100 block of Edgewater Drive, council members delayed any decision as they

while neither she nor other board members have met Mendoza, they were confident in the positive feedback from administrators and teachers on the search committee and in Collins’ endorsement. Radford said Mendoza would serve as the principal for the full school year and would have an opportunity to become the permanent head of the high school. She said the board planned on posting the job opening in October with the goal of selecting a permanent principal in January. “We have not met [Mendoza] face to face, but his recommendations were glowing,” Radford said of the board’s decision. “He came very highly recommended and met the expectations of the district.”

Lake High School Principal Juan Gardner left last week for a similar position closer to his home. Collins said Mendoza’s public troubles were not a concern. He was reprimanded last fall for an incident in which a Crystal Lake police officer said Mendoza appeared to be intoxicated and asleep in the back seat of his vehicle a short distance from his house. “One thing I can say about Dr. Mendoza is he was very transparent and very forthcoming. I think that is one of the strengths we saw in him,” Collins said. “We were appreciative of his honesty.” District 116 Board President Nanci Radford said that

Mayor Aaron Shepley said about following the approved plans from road engineering experts struggled with breaking the city policy of limiting front yard fences to 3 feet high. The residents said the alternative to the 4-foot, opaque fence that has been approved by all the neighbors would be a less desirable 3-foot, full privacy fence. “Common sense tells me there is nothing wrong with this,” Councilwoman Cathy Ferguson said. “As much as I like the fence and see the absolute reasonableness, if I voted otherwise, I think it would be subjective.” The council moved to table the request and will consider amending the city’s fencing ordinances to allow all similar requests to be accepted without having to make exceptions.

LIGHT program plans open house NORTHWEST HERALD HUNTLEY – The Special Services Department of District 158 has a new 18 to 21 transition program, Life Instruction Guiding Huntley Transition, or LIGHT, developed to support students with disabilities as they progress into adulthood and higher education. The District 158 communities are invited to attend a ribbon-cutting and open house for LIGHT from 6 to 7 p.m. Aug. 19 at Deicke Park, 11419 Route 47

LIGHT offers students continued assistance through state and federal legislation before exiting secondary education. It provides a range of academic and vocational training that is directed by the student’s individualized educational plan. This fall, LIGHT begins

its inaugural year as a threetiered program at Huntley Park District’s Deicke Park and McHenry County College. The program will be taught by District 158 special education teachers and support staff. Curriculum is focused on developing and building academics, employment and independent living skills to meet the needs of the 18 to 21 population.

Bears coach Marc Trestman talks with his team on the first day of training camp July 26 in Bourbonnais. Friday’s preseason game at Carolina will be the fulfillment of a lifetime of hopes and dreams for Trestman.

Stories on Page C2

Preseason opener a personal accomplishment for coach BOURBONNAIS – It would be easy to miss in the clutter of all that is insignificant, tedious and distracting about NFL opening preseason games, but to ignore the personal accomplishment for Marc Trestman would be grossly unfair. Since Trestman first started coaching as a volunteer assistant at the University of Miami more than 30 years ago, his goal and dream have been to be a head coach in the NFL. While the game itself quickly will be forgotten, when the referee raises his arm and blows his whistle to signify the opening kickoff of the Bears’ preseason tilt at Carolina, it also will signal the fulfillment of a lifetime of hopes and dreams for Trestman. It is a moment worth noting. We have much to learn about Trestman as an NFL head coach, but the early indications are that he is ready for the challenge and will approach it somewhat differently than most have before him. Concerns about his cerebral nature and almost professorial approach to the job have been put to rest early in training camp by how clearly and completely he

BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush seems to have his players’ attention. Asked to describe his new head coach, backup quarterback Josh McCown answered: “Marc is very humble, very patient and highly intelligent. He does a great job with us, especially the quarterbacks, just in how he explains things, how he explains reads. The nature of his disposition is different and he understands that. He’s a really great communicator.” McCown added: “Marc talks about it being so important for us to build a solid relationship going forward because the head coach and the quarterback have to be on the same page, and he’s done a great job of keeping us there and building trust.” Starting quarterback Jay Cutler has echoed McCown’s sentiments since arriving in Bourbonnais. And as we’ve learned from past experience, it is Cutler’s relationship with Trestman and the rest of his staff that will go

a long way toward determining the success of this ballclub. General manager Phil Emery also has said how impressed he is with Trestman so far, particularly in his approach to his players, teaching and trying to build a team-first, family-type atmosphere. Trestman has spoken often in his first couple weeks about “how much we all love football.” The five minutes or so surrounding the opening kickoff in Carolina will be a huge moment for Trestman, and I’m sure a thousand emotions will well up and run through him. But then he quickly will be returned to the enormity of the task at hand. Even though it will be Trestman’s first game as an NFL head coach, don’t expect him to treat it any differently than any other coaches we’ve known. The coach announced after the club’s final practice before Friday’s game that not all the starters will play, and those who do will see extremely limited action. Trestman said Cutler will play but it might be for no more than three to six plays.

Bryan Bulaga’s second opinion on his injured knee was similar to the first – his ACL is torn and the Green Bay Packers left tackle likely will miss the 2013 season, according to ProFootballTalk.com. Bulaga, a 2007 Marian Central graduate who grew up in Crystal Lake, suffered the injury in Saturday’s scrimmage. The Packers’ medical staff diagnosed a torn ACL, but Bulaga sought a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews, known as one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the nation. ProFootballTalk.com’s Mike Florio reported Wednesday that Andrews recommended surgery to repair the tear and it likely will take place next week after swelling subsides. Bulaga did not miss any snaps after the injury and was hopeful there would be a way he could return sometime this season. The blow is especially tough for the fourth-year tackle because he is coming off an injured left hip that knocked him out after Week 9 of last season. That injury did not require surgery and Bulaga was eager to get back on the field at a new position. He started at right tackle most of his three previous seasons.

MCJGA CRYSTAL WOODS OPEN

Walker tops Irlbacker in playoff By PATRICK MASON pmason@shawmedia.com

Sarah Nader – snader@shawmedia.com

Senior boys division competitor Jack Ramsett chips onto the sixth green during the second day of MCJGA Crystal Woods Open on Wednesday at the Crystal Woods Golf Course in Woodstock. Ramsett won the division with a two-day total of 148.

WOODSTOCK – A few days before the McHenry County Junior Golf Associations’ two-day tournament at Crystal Woods Golf Club, Jacobs golfer Billy Walker had a conversation with his grandfather. Walker’s previous best 18-hole score was a 71, and his grandpa wanted him to break that record. During Tuesday’s first round, he found himself 3-under par with five holes to play on the par-72 course, but ended up carding a 73 and a three-stroke lead in the junior division. On Wednesday, Walker tried

again to break 71, but put too much pressure on himself and ended up shooting an 83 that tied him atop the leader board with Kyle Irlbacker, who made up a three-stroke deficit to force a playoff. “It was rough [Wednesday],” Walker said. “I came into the tournament with too many expectations. My grandpa wanted to see me get un-

der 70, and I was a little mad that I didn’t do it.” The two golfers headed out to the first tee to begin the playoff. Irlbacker led with two nice shots and made par, which forced Walker, who missed the green on his approach, to make a 10-foot putt to stay even with his opponent. The two headed to the second hole, where Walker finished the job by making another par while Irlbacker bogeyed. Walker was able to stay calm during the two-hole playoff by asking himself what the Worlds No. 1 golfer would do.

BEARS NOTES

Bears prep for game-like situations Hayden’s injury ends his season, requires surgery By KEVIN FISHBAIN kfishbain@shawmedia.com BOURBONNAIS – The Bears’ final practice as a whole had a different look than what we have seen in the Marc Trestman era, even though it began with a “déjà vu all over again” moment. On the first play, quarterback Jay Cutler’s pass got batted at the line and intercepted, which happened three times the previous day. After that, though, the offense settled down, as coach Trestman got the team ready for the regular season in what he dubbed the “most important practice of the year.” “We did everything from the sideline today – there were no scripts or preparation for the players,” he explained. “We gave the coaches and the players to work situational football like it would be in the game.” The format allowed the team to get used to a packed sideline, which they will experience with 90 players in the first couple of preseason games. It also wasn’t a designed practice necessarily for Friday night’s preseason

getting coaching on the field. You didn’t feel the energy that comes with coaches moving them along, they had to do it on their own.” “It’s a great exercise. … Everybody needs to feel that dynamic and we try to get them a

Bears won’t be inviting ‘Hard Knocks’ to camp BOURBONNAIS – The HBO series “Hard Knocks” kicked off this week in Cincinnati, which is about 260 miles from Olivet Nazarene University. As far as some Bears are concerned, that distance is just about perfect. For fans, the series represents a rare opportunity to see players beyond the field. Cameras take us into cafeterias, meeting rooms and dorm rooms and show the supposed realities of what life is like for coaches and players in the NFL. The Bengals are in the spotlight for the second time in the series’ eight-season history. They also were featured in 2009, while other teams who have starred in “Hard Knocks” include the Baltimore Ravens (2001), Dallas Cowboys (2002, 2008), Kansas City Chiefs (2007), New York Jets (2010) and Miami Dolphins (2012). Veteran offensive lineman Matt Slauson participated in the series as a member of the Jets in 2010. He joined the Bears this season after four years in New York. Asked to grade his “Hard Knocks” experience on a scale of fun to annoying, Slauson sighed and pondered the question. “It’s not really fun,” Slauson said. That would leave annoying. Slauson had a better description: frustrating. “As a player, you do watch the shows,” Slauson said. “And it does get very frustrating how much they cut and paste.” This probably should shock no one with a cerebrum, cerebellum and brain stem. Reality TV is to reality what convenience store seafood is to seafood. In the quest for ratings, tension trumps all. “They try to create controversy and create stories where there’s not really a story,” Slauson said. “They will interview somebody and ask them about a player, and then they’ll use that clip to talk about a different player.” That’s really low. “I know,” Slauson said. “It’s awful. But it’s what they do. They have to get people to watch, so whatever.” Don’t expect the series to come to Bourbonnais any

BEARS INSIDER Tom Musick time soon. Not this year, not next year. If I were to guess, I’d extend that phrase to not this decade, not next decade. Bears general manager Phil Emery is polite and friendly with reporters, but he guards team secrets like a night watchman at the Smithsonian. It’s beyond difficult to imagine Emery and coach Marc Trestman inviting cameras into meeting rooms while coaches analyzed film and prepared for the next game on the schedule. Last year, Emery all but closed the door on the possibility of hosting “Hard Knocks.” “To me, it’s all about football,” Emery said. “Personally, no, but if that was in the best interest of the club, I’m sure we would all consider it.” Maybe if the Bears were starved for publicity, extra cameras and microphones would make sense. But they are by far the most popular team in Chicago, including the Blackhawks, who have won two Stanley Cup championships in four seasons. Bears defensive tackle Stephen Paea said he watched the series but did not mind other teams hogging the spotlight. “It’s a distraction,” Paea said. “A lot of guys won’t be themselves in front of cameras.” Even if players were

authentic, who knows which scenes the series would air? That’s part of what bugged Slauson so much. “It did give fans a little bit of a glimpse into what camp was like, but what they showed, sometimes it made us kind of look bad,” Slauson said. “The way that we’re seeing ourselves being portrayed, it was like, ‘That’s not really what camp is like. It’s not just a joke-around fest. I mean, this is serious stuff here.’ ” In reality, Slauson said, an all-access series about camp would be pretty dull. “Yeah, absolutely,” Slauson said. “Camp for us is boring. I’ve got zero time to do anything fun, so I’m just sitting in meetings and going to practice and then more meetings and bed. So, I mean, there’s not really a whole lot to show there.” At least the series could show the Bears’ faces, which could help a guy such as Paea. Sometimes, the burly Samoan is mistaken for teammate Roberto Garza. “Football is a game of guys with helmets,” Paea said with a smile. “A lot of fans don’t know what I look like. They sometimes call me ‘Garza’ because I’m brown and I have the Mohawk.” Some face time on TV could help. “They would get familiar with the names easier,” Paea said. Garza, er, Paea has a point.

BRIDGEVIEW – The underdog of soccer underdogs, D.C. United, has advanced to the U.S. Open Cup Final. United’s 2-0 victory over the Fire in Wednesday’s semifinal accomplished that despite the worst record in MLS. D.C. scored its fourth win of the tournament. It has three victories in MLS competition this season, along with 15 losses and four ties, but it’s unbeaten in the U.S. Soccer Federation’s all-comers tournament. United will visit Real Salt Lake in the Oct. 1 final. The outcome made up for a 4-1 loss July 20 to the Fire in MLS play on the same field.

Muhammad sent home from transition program FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – Minnesota Timberwolves president Flip Saunders said the team “fully supports” the decision to send first-round draft Shabazz Muhammad home from the NBA’s rookie transition program because of a rules violation. Muhammad was sent home after bringing a female visitor to his hotel room Tuesday night. Players are required to get approval for guests from program officials. Muhammad also will be fined for the infraction, which was first reported by USA Today. He will have to go through the program again next summer.

OSU: QB Miller did not profit from signed items

Cornerback an issue 1

Bears return specialist Devin Hester signs autographs for fans after the second day of training camp July 27 in Bourbonnais. The Bears have no plans to invite the HBO film crew of “Hard Knocks” to training camp anytime soon.

ity at the time was only week to week. That opens the door for Isaiah Frey to grab the No. 3 corner role, and also creates the possibility of the Bears adding another veteran corner. Hayden, who signed a one-year deal to stay with the team in March, played in every game last season and had 37 tackles and five passes defensed. Other nicks and bruises: Receiver Earl Bennett officially has a concussion. He was back on the practice field Wednesday for the first time since Saturday, but did not participate and won’t play Friday night in Carolina. Defensive end Julius Peppers remained excused from practice. Defenseive end Corey Wootton left practice with tightness in his calf and safety Chris Conte had tightness in his hamstring. Offensive tackle Jonathan Scott still is out with a knee injury. Quick hits: The biggest pass play of the day came on a bullet touchdown from quarterback Josh McCown to tight end Fendi Onobun. … Both Eric Weems and Joe Anderson took reps with the first-team receivers in Bennett’s absence. … Offensive tackle Jermon Bushrod was more involved in Wednesday’s practice, but still might be held out of Friday’s preseason game. Trestman said all starters would be playing minimally in Carolina, if they play at all.

United make Open Cup final with win over Fire

The Bears were at best thin at cornerback before Wednesday’s announcement that starting nickel back Kelvin Hayden will be out for the season after surgery on his injured hamstring. Consider them now dangerously thin. Zack Bowman (already cut and resigned once) and Sherrick McManis (primarily a special teams player) are the only veterans on the roster with NFL experience behind starters Tim Jennings and Charles Tillman. Isaiah Frey was on the Bears’ practice squad last year. For now, the nickel job is Frey’s to lose, but you can bet general manager Phil Emery is scouring the NFL waiver wire.

2

Not only is Eben Britton firmly entrenched at offensive tackle now as opposed to guard, coach Marc Trestman went so far as to say Wednesday that Britton is “definitely involved right now as part of this roster.” That’s about as far as Trestman’s gone praising any player in camp.

Linebacker D.J. Williams was seen watching practice Wednesday from a golf cart in a walking boot, and appeared to still be suffering noticeable discomfort from his calf injury. His status remains week to week. – Hub Arkush, harkush@shawmeida.com

Cutler will see limited time • ARKUSH Continued from page C1 The guess here is that Cutler will get only one series, unless the Bears go three and out, in which case he might come out for a second possession. Trestman also explained that his focus in the game will be working with his second-, third- and fourth-teamers to see how well they’ve absorbed his system; how they perform in a full-contact, live-game situation; how they handle special teams; and, for the majority of them who also will

be seeing their first NFL action, how they respond to the bright lights and big stage. Perhaps the best news for Trestman in Carolina will be that, unlike the majority of his players, his job will absolutely not be at stake for the first time in a long time. His job will be to get this one under his belt, take just a moment to enjoy it, and then get on with the business of seeing how long he can keep it.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – After an investigation, Ohio State has determined star quarterback Braxton Miller did not profit from the sale of items he signed at a Big Ten preseason kickoff luncheon. Athletic director Gene Smith said Wednesday the university talked to Miller after someone offered autographs and signed memorabilia for sale online without the junior’s knowledge. He said Miller had been cleared of breaking any NCAA bylaws.

Charges dropped against ex-Dolphin Duper JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Florida prosecutors have dropped child-abuse charges against former Miami Dolphins receiver Mark Duper. Prosecutors in Jacksonville said the facts in the case did not warrant taking the case against the 54-year-old Duper to trial. Duper had been accused of punching, body-slamming and choking his 17-year-old son in March. Duper’s attorney George Cholakis said the teen had exaggerated what happened. Former NFL star Hugh Green was at Duper’s house when the altercation occurred. He said Duper’s son started the fight and Duper was only defending himself. – Wire reports

feel like you kind of take it hole by hole.” Competing in about her fifth match-play tournament, Harkins said her mindset was reminding herself that each hole was a clean slate. That mentality paid off. Harkins built the lead to four Lexi Harkins through the first four holes. However, Superal trimmed Harkins’ lead to one through 10 holes. But Harkins never wavered. Harkins believed her birdie putt

on No. 15, which put her up three, was her biggest shot of the round and “kind of ended the match.” “I just kind of played well and ran with it the whole day,” Harkins said. The biggest adjustment going from stroke play to match play, Harkins said, was changing her approach of going up against one golfer instead of the entire tournament field. “Especially because I haven’t played a lot of match play, it gives me some confidence going into the next matches,” Harkins said of her upset win. To qualify for the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship, Harkins

tied for medalist honors by shooting 1-over-par 73 July 15 at Forest Hill Golf Course in Forest Lake, Minn. Harkins said this is about her eighth tournament in which she has competed this summer. With a quick turnaround between U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship rounds, Harkins’ plan is to keep the same mentality of taking it one hole at a time Thursday. “Definitely, this summer my game has matured and changed,” Harkins said. “I think I’ve been playing better than I did last year and have some new experiences playing in bigger tournaments.”

PGA CHAMPIONSHIP

McIlroy looking for the kid who won the PGA By DOUG FERGUSON The Associated Press PITTSFORD, N.Y. – The curls no longer spilled from under his cap, a big change for Rory McIlroy. Prompted to reveal the rest of his free haircut, he removed his hat and wild brown locks sprang to life. “Still a little bit on the top,” he said Wednesday with an easy smile. Only then did McIlroy resemble the Boy Wonder who dominated golf last summer, starting with his win at the PGA ChampiRory McIlroy onship at Kiawah Island by a record margin. He didn’t walk down the fairways that week, he bounced. He was No. 1 in the world, and looked every bit the part. McIlroy would love to rediscover that kid at Oak Hill this week. In its place is a 24-year-old from Northern Ireland who has reason to feel much older. He hasn’t won a tournament, and only once did he even come close. He has finished over par in all three majors, with only two rounds at the British Open. He has failed to make the cut five times this year, which includes walking off the course in the Honda Classic with sore wisdom teeth that still haven’t been removed. Among betting favorites, he was second only to Tiger Woods at the Masters at 5-to1. For the PGA Championship, the odds are 30-to-1, higher than two players (Henrik Stenson and Brandt Snedeker) who never have won a major. And he can’t wait to get to the first tee Thursday afternoon. Inspiration comes from videos he has been watching of his eight-shot win at Kiawah Island, along with his back-toback FedEx Cup playoff wins against some of the strongest fields of the year. Some of what he noticed was technical, such as the position of his club in

PGA Championship PITTSFORD, N.Y. – A glance at Thursday’s opening round of the PGA Championship at 7,163-yard, par-70 Oak Hill Country Club (East Course): Defending champion: Rory McIlroy, who won by a record eight strokes at Kiawah Island. Tiger watch: Tiger Woods is 0 for 17 in the majors since winning his 14th at the 2008 U.S. Open, the longest drought of his career. But he has won five times this year, the most on the PGA Tour. Key statistic: There have been 16 times when a player had all four rounds in the 60s at the PGA Championship, the most of any major. Noteworthy: The past three winners of the PGA Championship all have been in their 20s, the longest such streak in any major in nearly 50 years. Quotable: “Somebody is going to win this thing, and that person is going to play awfully well, awfully good golf this week. Wish I could say that’s me.” – Tom Watson, 63, playing his 32nd PGA Championship TV: Noon-6 p.m., TNT the swing. What really stood out was the body language. “It’s how you carry yourself. It’s all that sort of stuff, your little mannerisms,” McIlroy said. “I guess it’s just trying to remember those feelings and remember how I felt that week and trying to carry some of that into this week and just get those good, positive thoughts going. “I think everyone sees when I walk and I’m playing well, I have that little bounce in my step.” What would go a lot longer at Oak Hill is keeping the ball in play on a traditional, treelined course – so many trees that even being in the fairway doesn’t mean a clear shot at the green if the ball is slightly out of position. The greens are small and slope toward the front. Oak Hill is a hard golf course, and the evidence comes from the previous five majors on this Donald Ross design – only 10 players in those five majors have finished under par.

“This may be the toughest golf course, but the fairest golf course that we play,” said Tom Watson, playing this major for the 32nd time. “Somebody is going to win this thing, and that person is going to play awfully well, awfully good golf this week. Wish I could say that’s me.” Watson was joking. Not so funny is that the way McIlroy’s year has gone, there isn’t much reason to believe it could be him, either. Most of the attention is on Woods, even though he has gone five years and 17 majors without winning one. Woods won the Bridgestone Invitational last week by seven shots, sparked by a 61 in the second round that tied his personal best. That gave Woods five wins this year, which is five more than McIlroy. Phil Mickelson opened with a 65 in 2003 the last time the PGA Championship was played at Oak Hill until fading badly in one of his worst seasons as a pro. He is coming off an astounding win at the British Open, where his 66 in the final round is regarded as one of the best closing rounds in a major. If he could pick off another PGA Championship, Mickelson would be a shooin as PGA Tour player of the year, an award he never has won. McIlroy, meanwhile, has been largely forgotten through ordinary play and endless questions about a season gone wrong from his opening tournament when he missed the cut in Abu Dhabi. Some of his troubles have been attributed to a wholesale equipment change, others to his decision to change management companies. McIlroy said his switch to Nike no longer is an excuse, not with 15 tournaments under his belt. He says it has taken longer than usual to work his way out of bad habits. “I guess every time you play and you don’t play well, it sort of chips away at your confidence a little bit,” he said.

Ramsett wins boys senior division by 5 • MCJGA Continued from page C1 “I try not to make the [playoff holes] more intense, so I calmed myself down and I asked myself, ‘What would Tiger do?’ ” Walker said. “All I wanted to do was to win and I wanted to get back those strokes.” Walker and Irlbacker finished with a two-day totals of 156. Brandon Dahl was third after shooting 79-79, good for a 158. Jack Ramsett captured the boys senior division after going 74-74 and made up the twostroke deficit he entered the day with. Ramsett (148) was five strokes ahead of Tyler Ross (153). Matt Haussmann and day-one leader Paul Schlimm tied for third with a 154. “I didn’t get to worried [about being down],” Ramsett said. “I just tried to stay as consistent as possible and kept doing what worked.”

Boys senior division competitor Glenn Miller of Lake in the Hills watches his ball after teeing off on the eighth hole Wednesday. In the girls senior division, Larisa Luloff won by eight strokes after carding a twoday total of 78. She entered the day ahead by one stroke but played a great round and continued to gain ground. The girls play nine holes, which Luloff said can add pressure at times because there is little room for mistake. She three-putted on the first hole, which worried her a bit but she calmed down and was nearly

flawless the rest of the way. “If I didn’t three-putt that first hole, I could’ve gone under par,” said Luloff, a CaryGrove junior. “It’s a little more serious when you only play nine, but I was hitting the ball solidly, so I was happy.” Girls junior division point leader Sophia Archos escaped with the win after shooting a 100. Lauren Kalamaras (107) and Mia Belle McNeill (128) rounded out the top three.

Cubs: Same issues 25 years later I remember it like it was a quarter century ago. Or yesterday. Or 1800. That first night game at Wrigley Field, on this date 25 years past, was such a big event you might have thought somebody had invented electricity and Old Style simultaneously. As it was, the hot afternoon progressed, the sky’s glow dimmed, and when the lights took effect, there were the Friendly Confines illuminated like, well, every other major league ballpark in the world. There had been plenty of controversy, of course. Nothing beyond dirt-raking and gum-scraping can happen at Wrigley Field without controversy. Since the beginning of time, or at least 1914, there had not been night games at Wrigley. And according to many – neighbors, baseball “purists,’’ dark sky cultists – there never should be. Baseball started out being played in daylight, and who were the Cubs to change something God had decreed? If God wanted night games, He would have had light poles grow out of the ivy and light bulbs sprout from the Andy Frain ushers’ heads. In truth, the fuss and the game and the lighting were all so ... Cub-like. First of all, the Cubs have to be kicked in the rear every so often just to move into the world inhabited by everybody else. And there are Cubs fans and neighbors resisting that every kick. The all-day-games home schedule was wonderful in a lazier, simpler time. Kids, grandmas, and – as Jack Brickhouse called them – shut-ins could watch all summer-long on WGN-TV, and never have to worry about missing dinner. You could set your clock by that 1:20 p.m. start. Former president Dallas Green decided that a few 3:05 games might be enjoyable for working fans and healthy for players who went out on the town and

VIEWS Rick Telander

Oh yeah, and of course that had been one of the driest summers anyone could remember. Until then. Do you see a trend here? Do you see Cub-ness in microcosm on that first nonday, rain-lost, beautifully-illuminated and irrelevant event? I do. Indeed, I remember one day in the weeks preceding the big nongame taking a tour with former team president Don Grenesko – a guy I had once waited tables with at a restaurant in Evanston – and seeing not only plans for lights at Wrigley, but also places where Grenesko had said the trappings for the lights had been stored. The plans were from the 1940s, but World War II had interfered, and the copper wires and such had been given up for the defense effort. It only took 43 years to

get the lighting plan back on track. Hilarious, huh? In my view it is directly analogous to tormented plans today that the Ricketts family claim they need to bring the Cubs back into the major leagues, as we know them. The massive Jumbotron, the hotel, the walkway, the signage – it’s thelights issue of 25 years ago made modern. As I recall, that first sort-of night game had been lovely to watch. And oddly retro. The Cubs were 14 games under .500 and in fourth place in their division. It wasn’t déjà vu. It was just like forever.

Miller an outdoor aficionado

FIVE-DAY PLANNER TEAM

By STEVE SARLEY sportsdesk@nwherald.com Who is Lake in the Hills’ Mike Miller? He is one of the most serious outdoorsmen in McHenry County, possibly in all of northern Illinois. There are others like Miller, and they all deserve recognition for using the assets of our state in so many different manners. Miller and those like him are complete outdoors aficionados who find something to do and enjoy 12 months a year. The 50-year-old Miller lives with his wife of 23 years, Nancy, in Lake in the Hills. His children are 22-year-old Angela and Aimee, 20. All of the family members take part in the outdoors, though not as zealously as Mike does. Miller takes advantage of Illinois’ booming turkey population in the spring and the fall. He hunts a spot in Carroll County, and, unlike a lot of hunters, actually has bagged birds. Miller hunts for Illinois whitetail deer with his shotgun around Thanksgiving. He has multiple harvests and always fills the tags he purchases. Miller is an avid mushroom chaser. The tasty morels start popping up around Mother’s Day, and at that time you’ll find Mike in the forest, bent over and looking for the hard-to-spot fungi. They are delicious, sell over the counter for more than $50 a pound, and the season is short. They certainly are worth hunting for. Miller spends a lot of time fishing, both open water and through the ice. He fishes local waters and travels to nearby states regularly. He is regularly successful at bass fishing. Mike fishes extensively and

Miller’s wife Nancy says, “Mike is all about the outdoors. When we go out for a walk, he always can identify any animal we hear or bird we see. Lying in bed at night, he’ll tell me what bird she hears. Some times when we walk, he’ll bring a bird call and blow it and the birds will answer him.” Miller is a good example of what the outdoor heritage is all about. He learned all of his skills and his enjoyment of the outdoors from his father. Miller has passed down the same attributes to his own family and fervently hopes they will do the same with their own families.

OUTDOORS Steve Sarley experience they’ve attained in the military. This takes effect immediately. All in all, the conference call was a good one and I hope this trend continues into the future.

FISHING REPORT Northern Illinois: Dave Kranz from Dave’s Bait, Tackle and Taxidermy in Crystal Lake reports: “Bass fishing at Vulcan Lakes in the Three Oaks Recreation Area in Crystal Lake continues to be good. Drop shot a Roboworm with an 8-ounce weight in 12- to 20-feet of water and you will catch both large and smallmouth bass. Yamamoto Senkos fished wacky-style will work well in the shallow water in the early and late parts of the day. They have some big catfish there and they can be caught on Berkley blood catfish bait. “Archery deer permits should be available the third or fourth week of August.” Call 815-455-2040 for updated reports. Honest John from C.J. Smith’s resort on Grass Lake: “The stripers have started on Bluff Lake. Watch for the seagulls to find the location. Small fathead minnows or spikes work best. “Nice catfish are being caught in the channels on nightcrawlers, stink bait or chicken livers. Crappies have started appearing again on Bluff Lake in front of Steitz’s Resort. Small fatheads or spikes tipped on a chartreuse or white Mini Mite jig are working well. Bluegills are biting in numbers with trout worms working well. “Largemouth bass are on in Bluff Lake at the mouth, in the bay and along the piers on the back bay of Lake Marie. Muskie action has been good with some nice action reported on Channel Lake and also on Lake Catherine by Bob’s Marina.” As of Tuesday,the Upper and Lower Fox River and the Fox Chain all were deemed to be open for boating by the Fox Waterway Agency. For up-to-the-minute water conditions on the Fox Chain and Fox River, go to foxwaterway.state.il.us/ or call 847-587-8540. Lake Michigan: Captain Bob Ros-

sa of Migrator Charters (ALakeMichiganCharter.com) says, “Fish are out there and it isn’t odd to get a king, a Coho and a steelhead on the same outing. They are up and down the water column, so vary your depths and keep changing until you have figured them out. Watch the full-time charter Captains and do what they do.” You can call Wisconsin’s Lake Michigan Fishing Hotline at 414382-7920 to hear the latest fishing information for Lake Michigan and its tributaries.

New outdoors show on TV There is a new fishing show on the air with a taste of the Midwest as a part of it. Larysa Switlyk is the host of Larysa Unleashed, a new outdoors series of 14 shows now underway every Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. on NBC Sports. Larysa likes fishing and hunting in the Midwest and has a segment in her show from Wisconsin.

World record or not? I’ve talked about Arkansas’ Rodney Ply, who hooked what he believed was a state-record striper this year, a 68-pound beast. It ended up not only the biggest Arkansas striper, but the biggest in the world. Because of semantics, Arkansas claimed the state record was not his. Then the IGFA declares he didn’t have the world record, either. The fish was caught on a Mustad hook, which was running a promotion awarding $100,000 to the angler who caught a state record on one of their hooks and a cool million bucks if the fisherman claimed a world record. Because of the negative rulings, Ply has no records and no prize money. He has appealed his case up and down the ladder with no success. Now, it has come down to the courts, with Ply filing suit. We’ll report the outcome if it ever is decided. Mustad, who ran the contest for publicity, has received plenty of attention, but it is all bad. It’s not Mustad’s fault, though. The blame is squarely on the Arkansas DNR and the IGFA, in my humble opinion.

LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL owns a 16-foot jon boat that he has converted into his own personal bass boat. Though only powered by a small kicker motor, it gets Miller where he needs to go at a reasonable cost. With a family to raise, Miller has figured out many ways to accomplish his outdoor goals while spending as little as he can. What is an outdoorsman to do when the dog days of July and August are upon us and the fish don’t seem to be hungry? Guys such as Miller go out and get themselves limits of jumbo bullfrogs they can convert into a delicious frog leg dinner.

Group of new state bills good news I, along with a group of outdoor writers, was invited to take part in a conference call hosted by Illinois Department of Natural Resources director Mark Miller. I do not normally look forward to events like this one. The outdoor writers usually spend their rime complaining and the DNR spends its time apologizing for things caused by budget cuts that they cannot control. I usually come away depressed. Not this time. The writers were upbeat as Miller explained a number of laws that recently were passed by the legislature and signed by Gov. Pat Quinn. All of the bills should have a positive effects on our outdoors recreation. Senate bill 1620 takes affect the first of 2014 and requires hunters to use all of the usable part of an animal harvested. In 2012, 18 percent of all calls to the DNR hotline were to report carcass dumping. Believe it or not, some unethical hunters just lop off a male deer’s rack and leave the rest in the field. Until now, this was legal. Senate bill 1170 begins in 2014 and will allow the DNR to recoup costs incurred when aprehending someone who committed a game violation outside our state. The bill makes it illegal to possess an animal that was taken illegally in another state, allowing the offender to be charged with an Illinois possession violation beginning Jan. 1. Senate bill 1538 makes it legal to hunt the dreaded Asian Silver and Bighead carp with a sling bow. A sling bow basically is a slingshot that can handle firing an arrow. This weapon has been popularized in Illinois and the sling bows are made by the Central Illinois Tribal Council. This law takes affect immediately. House bill 1651 lets hunters shoot fur-bearing mammals with deer slugs immediately. This will please coyote hunters and might even help the state’s deer population. Senate bill 1003 changes the definition for the baiting of turkeys and whitetail deer. This bill clears up the question of whether or not putting out water is considered as baiting. Now, clear, plain water cannot be deemed to be bait. Lastly, Senate bill 50 lets veterans complete the hunter safety requirements for their hunter safety cards on their computers. They will get a pass on the field portion of the course in lieu of the

Treatment for infant hip Contractor wants to fire wife but save his marriage dysplasia is usually effective Dear Abby: I am a selfemployed general contractor, and have been for the most part successful. My wife, “Janine,” worked in the mortgage industry, but because of the economic downturn hasn’t worked in three years. After her mom provided some financial help to my business eight months ago, Janine decided she wanted to work for me doing the office work and bookkeeping. The problem is, she doesn’t show up until late afternoon and stays only a short while. She doesn’t get any work done, and then she leaves. She constantly rushes to get the bills paid at the very last minute. Although my wife is college-educated, she really can’t handle the job. Her work ethic is terrible. I started my company, and I’m the boss. When Janine doesn’t agree with me about something, she yells so loud I’m sure the people who work next door can hear her. I have talked to her about this, and we have fought about it. I tried to fire her, but she says if she can’t work for my business, we might as well get divorced. I never wanted a partner and didn’t ask for one, and now I feel trapped with an employee from hell. I love Janine and don’t want a

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips divorce. How can I get her to quit and still stay married? –

Needs Help In California Dear Needs: Your wife’s behavior is immature and inappropriate. If her being in your office is connected to the money her mother loaned you, my advice is to repay it immediately before your wife’s “dabbling” as a business partner disrupts the business any further. You may love Janine, but if the only thing holding your marriage together is allowing her to play at working in the office, then I’m sorry to say you don’t have much of a marriage. Wake up and smell the coffee. You need an assistant, and your wife needs something else to occupy her time. Dear Abby: I was abused as a child through my teenage years. I told my mom, and we talked about it. My stepfather was the molester. Part of me is still angry about what he did to me, but another part thinks fondly of the life we had as kids. What’s wrong with me? Is it normal to have conflicted emotions about a person who hurt you?

None of my siblings know about my past. My stepfather is deceased now and so is my mom. – Survivor In Maryland Dear Survivor: You deserve credit for not only being able to acknowledge your pain, but also emotionally mature enough to look back and not diminish the good things. It’s a sign that you are healthy. Your feelings are normal, and you are to be congratulated for being able to view your history in its entirety. Dear Abby: The women I work with are now starting to have grandchildren. That’s great, but when did it become trendy to have baby showers for the grandmothers? Personally, I think this is over the top. What about you? – Shower Overload In

Minnesota Dear Shower Overload: I don’t agree. It may have become trendy around the time that so many grandmothers assumed responsibility for raising their grandchildren. Or, the women may be so excited about welcoming a first grandchild they want to celebrate with a party of their own. Because you feel differently, simply decline the invitations.

Dear Dr. K: My baby has developmental dysplasia of the hip. What is this? How will it be treated? Dear Reader: Because I’m not a pediatrician, I haven’t seen a baby with developmental dysplasia of the hip since I was in medical school. But I talked with pediatrician colleagues here at Harvard Medical School and refreshed my memory. Our hips are designed to support our full weight while allowing movement in all directions. To accomplish this, the rounded top of the thigh bone (femur) fits into a cup-shaped socket in the pelvis called the acetabulum. The “ball” of the femur sits inside the socket. (I’ve put an illustration of the hip joint on my website.) In developmental dysplasia of the hip, the ball at the top of the femur moves in and out of the socket either partway or all the way. That’s not supposed to happen: It makes the hip unreliable in supporting the baby’s weight. The ball of the femur slips in and out of the socket because the ligaments that hold the two bones together are very loose or because the cup-shaped socket is not deep enough.

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff This condition usually is present at birth, but it can develop after birth, during infancy or childhood. Usually just one hip is affected, but in about 20 percent of children with this condition it affects both hips. The condition is more common in babies who were breech deliveries. It also seems to run in families. It happens more often in little girls than in little boys, and more often in firstborn infants. We don’t know why. Doctors routinely check for developmental dysplasia of the hip in newborns and at follow-up well-baby visits. If the doctor feels unusual movement of the hip, he or she will use ultrasound or X-rays to confirm the diagnosis. Left untreated, developmental dysplasia of the hip can lead to a shortened leg, arthritis, difficulty walking and long-term pain. But with early treatment, most children can walk normally and have normal hip function. Treatment depends on

the child’s age: • Newborns usually wear a special device, such as the Pavlik harness or the Frejka splint. These devices keep the top of the femur in the socket the right way. The hip ligaments gradually tighten and the hip joint usually stabilizes. • For infants age 1 month to 6 months, the doctor will try a harness or splint. If these devices don’t help, the doctor will consider gently (and nonsurgically) putting the head of the femur in place while the child is under anesthesia. This is called a closed reduction. The child then wears a body cast (spica cast) until the hip joint is normal. • Most children age 6 months to 2 years can be treated with closed reduction and a spica cast. Some require open surgery. • For children older than 2 years, surgery is often needed, followed by a spica cast. Fortunately, treatment is usually effective, and the child does not have hip problems later in life.

Usher’s ex-wife granted custody hearing THINGS

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

Thursday, August 8, 2013 • PlanitNorthwest.com/buzz Michelle Dockery (left) and Joanne Froggatt Photo provided

Lady Mary copes with grief, suitors in ‘Downton Abbey’ Lady Mary will be mired in grief as season four of “Downton Abbey” begins, mourning the loss of her husband, Matthew. But a string of suitors awaits when she’s ready to live again, said Michelle Dockery, who plays Mary in the hit drama that will return to PBS’ “Masterpiece” in January. “She has more than one love interest,” Dockery said. “She’s kind of slowly throughout the series coming back to real life, and, of course, it’s important for her to eventually move on.” All of those men are, she noted with satisfaction, handsome. “That was stipulated by you,” said executive producer Gareth Neame. He and several cast members including Dockery and Laura Carmichael, who plays Mary’s sister, Edith, attended a Television Critics Association news conference Tuesday evening to promote the show. Mary’s husband, played by Dan Stevens, was killed in a car crash just after welcoming the couple’s newborn son, George, in last season’s finale. The fourth season of “Downton Abbey,” which follows the lives of the family and servants living in an English stately house, will include newcomers Paul Giamatti as an American relation and opera singer Kiri Te Kanawa. The drama series, which started in 1912 and has been moving the calendar forward, is up to the early 1920s and reflects the world’s increasing modernity. A fifth season is planned, Neame said, who suggested there could be more to come. “The show is so popular around the world, it’s beloved and it’s in fine form,” he said. But he said he couldn’t envision following the characters as far as World War II.

A judge has scheduled an emergency custody hearing requested by Usher’s ex-wife after one of the pair’s sons got stuck in a pool drain at the singer’s Atlanta home. A lawyer for Tameka Foster Raymond filed the request Tuesday in Fulton County Superior Court and Judge John J. Goger approved it the same day, scheduling a hearing for Friday. The court filing says the boy “suffered a near-death accident” while left unsupervised in a pool at the Grammy winner’s home Monday. Atlanta police have said 5-year-old Usher Raymond V fell to the bottom of the pool and became stuck in the drain Monday. A housekeeper tried unsuccessfully to free him. A contractor doing work at the home pulled the boy from the pool and performed CPR.

With an estimated 4.8 million viewers, it had the largest audience of any show in the 26 years that Discovery has made “Shark Week” a part of its summer programming, the Nielsen company said. Yet it drew a heated response online from viewers who said airing a “mockumentary” compromises the network’s reputation. Discovery’s “Shark Week” Web page and Facebook and Twitter sites filled after the show with complaints from fans who objected to the program, saying they were surprised a science-based network seriously discussed the existence of a fearsome creature when there is no evidence it exists today.

D’Angelo cancels festival appearance over illness D’Angelo has added the Outside Lands music festival to his list of cancellations due to an unspecified medical emergency. The soul singer had been forced to cancel U.S. dates last week due to illness and also will miss shows in Chicago and San Diego this week. Chic, featuring Nile Rodgers, will step into D’Angelo’s slot Friday night at Outside Lands where he was supposed to close the Sutro Stage. The nature of D’Angelo’s illness was unclear. A publicist didn’t immediately respond to an email inquiry. The singer, whose real name is Michael Archer, has been slowly returning to public performances over the last year after more than a decade away from the spotlight and is expected to soon release his first album since 2000.

John and Laurie Lettner recently revived Spring Grove Heating & Air Conditioning after it closed.

SG staple re-opens New owners take over Spring Grove business By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com SPRING GROVE – Spring Grove Heating & Air Conditioning has been a staple in the community for decades. That’s why when John and Laurie Lettner heard it was going out of business, they decided to see if they could purchase it. They officially took over in midJuly. “The first week we had the phones, it was 100 degrees outside,” Laurie Lettner said. “It went nuts,” John Lettner added. The husband-and-wife pair also own and operate Pure Air Heating and Air Conditioning, a Northbrook business they bought in 1998 and then moved to Morton Grove and finally to Glenview in 2006. It was right around the time of the final move that the Lettners and their two daughters, Krissy, 18, and Jessica, 20, moved to Spring Grove, drawn by the open space – sandhill cranes are frequent visitors to their backyard – and a barn where John Lettner can indulge his interest in snowmobiling and motorcycling. The Lettners belong to the Richmond Trailblazers, a snowmobiling club based in nearby Richmond. “We’re not an outsider coming in and just taking over this area,” John Lettner said. “We do have roots here. We’ve raised our kids here. We’ve put our kids through schools here. Both of our kids now are graduated [from] high school and going off to college. “We’re doing this to continue on with this Spring Grove Heating & Air Conditioning tradition. We want this to remain a cornerstone for this community that it has for umpteen years.” Getting the word out that Spring Grove Heating & Air Conditioning is back and still locally owned has been half the battle.

Kyle Grillot – kgrillot@shawmedia.com

John and Laurie Lettner pose for a portrait. The Lettner family lives in Spring Grove. They also own and operate Pure Air Heating & Air Conditioning in Glenview, which has been in operation since 1974.

Pure Air Heating & Air Conditioning What: Owned by John and Laurie Lettner of Spring Grove, Pure Air provides service, installation and maintenance of heating and air conditioning systems for residential and commercial properties Where: 3010 N. Lake Terrace, Glenview Information: 815-675-6211 or info@purecomfort.com Website: pure-comfort.com The previous owner, Bob Hahn, sold the building on Route 12, and for a while, the phone number was answered by an automatic message saying it was closed. “Everyone thought it was out of business – and it was until I came into the picture,” John Lettner said. They’re also putting an emphasis on making sure the transition is seamless for their customers. The Lettners take pride in the

recognitions Pure Air Heating & Air Conditioning has received for customer service. They’ve received the Super Service Award from Angie’s List for four years running, which means they’ve received an “A” average on reviews received during the year and have an overall “A” rating. They also received an A-plus rating from the Better Business Bureau, which takes into account how long the business has been around and the fact that they’ve received no complaints. Focused on taking ownership, the Lettners haven’t finalized what other changes may be coming to the business. They’re toying with combining the names, so that both locations are one unified business. With Pure Air covering the north and northwest suburbs and Spring Grove Heating & Air Conditioning focused further to the north, it also opens up the opportunity to fill in the middle, John Lettner said.

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. – Ford’s top North American manufacturing executive said it’s unlikely the automaker will build another U.S. factory anytime soon. Jim Tetreault said his job is to squeeze more cars and trucks out of existing factories to avoid the high cost of new plants. Ford’s U.S. sales bottomed out at 1.7 million in 2009 when the company nearly went out of business. But they rebounded to more than 2.2 million last year and have risen 13 percent so far this year. Tetreault said the company has hired 8,000 factory workers in the past 15 months and raised assembly line speeds to help meet demand. Now it’s getting rid of bottlenecks by buying new equipment, redesigning parts or hiring more people.

Time Warner 2Q net income jumps 87 pct NEW YORK – Time Warner, owner of HBO, CNN, and Warner Bros., said Wednesday that its second-quarter net income jumped 87 percent, boosted by better results at its film and TV businesses. The results beat Wall Street predictions and the New York company boosted its full-year profit outlook. Chairman and CEO Jeff Bewkes credited the company’s investments in quality programing at its Turner and HBO networks with helping to draw in viewers, advertisers and affiliates. Revenue at the company’s networks division increased 7 percent to $3.84 billion.

Duke profit falls on write-down, mild temps NEW YORK – Duke Energy Corp. posted a sharp drop in second-quarter profit on costs related to closing a crippled nuclear power station in Florida and milder weather in its service territory. Duke, the nation’s largest utility by number of customers and market value, said Wednesday that it earned $399 million, or 48 cents per share, in the April-to-June quarter. That’s down from $444 million, or 99 cents per share, a year ago. Adjusted to remove the effect of one-time items, the company earned 87 cents per share. That was below analysts’ expectations for earnings of 93 cents per share, on average.

Closing Fannie, Freddie could boost mortgage rates By ANDREW MIGA Associated Press WASHINGTON – Homebuyers could feel the pinch if Congress follows through on plans to shut down Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-controlled mortgage guarantee giants that were rescued by a $187 billion taxpayer bailout during the financial crisis. Borrowers would probably end up paying slightly higher mortgage rates under House and Senate bills that would phase out Fannie and Freddie over five years and shrink the government’s huge role in guaranteeing mortgage securities. Fannie and Freddie teetered under a crush of massive losses on risky mortgages before being bailed out. The House Republican bill would virtually privatize the mortgage market. The Senate’s bipartisan plan envisions a continued but more limited government role in insuring mortgage securities. Supporters say that would keep mortgages available and affordable.

President Barack Obama speaks about housing Tuesday in Phoenix. Congressional efforts to overhaul the nation’s mortgage finance system got a boost Tuesday from President Barack Obama’s call for changes that are generally in line with the Senate’s bipartisan plan. “For too long these companies

were allowed to make huge profits buying mortgages, knowing that if their bets went bad, taxpayers would be left holding the bag. It was ‘heads we win, tails you lose,’ and it was wrong,” Obama said. “The good news is right now there’s a bipar-

tisan group of senators working to end Fannie and Freddie as we know them. And I support these kinds of reform efforts.” The idea behind both plans is to shift more mortgage financing risk from the government to the private sector to prevent taxpayers from having to pay for future bailouts. But there’s a price homebuyers would likely pay for having private investors shoulder more risk to protect taxpayers. “It will mean higher mortgage rates,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics. “The question is how much higher.” Typical borrowers could pay about $75 per month in extra interest payments, about half a percentage point, on an average mortgage under the Senate proposal, Zandi estimated, and about $135 more under the House plan. That’s on a conforming loan of about $200,000 with the borrower providing a 20 percent down payment.

8IN BRIEF Weak earnings tug stocks lower on Wall Street NEW YORK – Disappointing earnings news and a slump in bank stocks tugged the stock market down Wednesday, giving major indexes their first threeday drop since June. Banks had some of the biggest losses following news that the government filed lawsuits accusing Bank of America of misleading investors. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 6.46 points, or 0.4 percent, to close at 1,690.91. Seven of the index’s 10 industry groups ended lower. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 48.07 points, or 0.3 percent, to 15,470.67. The Nasdaq composite lost 11.76 points, or 0.3 percent, to 3,654.01. The S&P 500 has drifted down 1.1 percent since reaching an alltime high of 1,709.67 on Friday. Trading has been thin this week, and warnings of slowing sales and tepid quarterly results have given investors no reason to push the market higher. “I’m not concerned about the market being down over a few days given how much it’s run up,” said Paul Zemsky, the head of multi-asset strategies at ING Investment Management. “Put it in context, and it’s not concerning.”

Amazon launches site for purchase of fine art NEW YORK – Amazon.com is getting into the fine art arena. Customers can buy original and limited edition works of art from more than 150 prominent galleries and dealers via Amazon Art. The announcement came Tuesday, a day after Seattle-based Amazon.com Inc. announced that its CEO, Jeff Bezos, had purchased the Washington Post. Amazon Art features 40,000 works from more than 4,500 artists. The wide range of works includes folk art, impressionism and modern art. Prices range widely, too. There’s a photograph by Clifford Ross for $200 and a painting by Norman Rockwell for $4.85 million. The online marketplace offers detailed information about the artist, work, provenance and exhibition history.

Consumer borrowing rose $13.8 billion in June WASHINGTON – Americans borrowed more in June to buy cars and attend schools. But they were frugal again with their credit cards, indicating many are still wary of taking on highinterest debt. The Federal Reserve says borrowing rose by $13.8 billion in June from May to a seasonally adjusted $2.85 trillion, the highest ever. The gain followed a $17.5 billion increase in May. The category that includes credit card use dropped $2.7 billion in June. That follows a gain of $6.4 billion in May, the largest in a year. Still, overall credit card debt has fallen 16.5 percent from its July 2008 peak. Borrowing for autos and student loans rose $16.5 billion in June. This category has been driven by loans to pay for college.

Virgin America posts 2Q profit as traffic rises SAN FRANCISCO – Virgin America posted a rare quarterly profit Wednesday, reflecting more people flying and falling fuel prices. San Francisco-based Virgin America was founded in 2007 and has yet to post an annual profit. But it has slowed its growth and is aiming to improve its finances. That happened with the quarterly results released on Wednesday. It posted net income of $8.8 million for the quarter that ended June 30, after losing $31.8 million a year earlier. Revenue rose 8 percent to $376.1 million. Traffic rose 5.6 percent, even though flying capacity was flat.

New math for homebuyers over 40 By ALEX VEIGA AP Business Writer LOS ANGELES – It’s often the most daunting and emotionally taxing item on one’s financial todo list: Buying a home. Most people wade into homeownership for the first time in their 20s and early 30s, when they still have the bulk of their working years ahead of them and a long runway to build equity – a key asset for eventually moving up to a bigger home. But what if you’ve reached midlife and still envision buying a home one day? Tackling that first home purchase after 40 can be easier in some ways than when you’re just staring out in your career, but it also brings its own set of financial factors. “It’s important to consider the financial work you have left,” says Eleanor Blayney, consumer advocate for the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards based in Washington D.C. “The financial hurdles you still have over the rest of your life and how homeownership and debt in particular are going to impact that.” A National Association of Realtors survey of people who bought a home between July 2011 and June 2012 showed that nearly 80 percent of firsttime homebuyers were 32 years-old or younger. In the next age bracket, those age 33-47, 36 percent were first-time buyers; between the ages of 48 to 57, 19 percent were first-time buyers. The rates of first-time homeownership generally declined as buyers got older, according to the survey, which featured 8,500 respondents. Even so, the last decade’s economic downturn and housing crash has forced many to put off that first home purchase. Here are some things to consider if you’re over 40 and eyeing homeownership:

Lending rules don’t change Good news: Being closer to retirement age than someone in their 20s and 30s can’t legally be held against you by a lender when they consider you for a home loan, regardless of the loan period. “So if somebody was to walk in today, and they’re 114 years old, and they ask for a 30-year mortgage and qualify for it, we have to give it to

them,” says Tom Jarboe, regional manager at lender Primary Residential Mortgage Inc. The decision on whether one qualifies for a loan hinges on the borrower’s income, assets, credit history and other factors. Banks generally look back two years to establish a borrower’s income history and also look to evaluate the likelihood that the borrower will continue to make the same level of income for at least another three years. If you’re in your late 50s or early 60s and disclose that you’re planning to retire within three years, a lender will evaluate your projected earnings from Social Security, retirement accounts, dividends on investments and other sources.

Consider benefits of paying off loan Most banks operate under the assumption that even a 30-year fixed mortgage will be swapped out for another loan within eight years, if not sooner. That’s because many homebuyers often end up refinancing, or moving for work or due to family considerations. But paying off a home and owning it free and clear by the time one retires is a smart play, particularly as the cost of housing is a significant expense for a person relying on a fixed income. That can be tougher for someone who puts off that first home purchase two decades into their prime working years, assuming they haven’t saved up money to make a hefty down payment – think at least 30 percent. But it’s doable. Blayney recommends that even older borrowers who take on a 30-year mortgage take steps to pay off the loan or lower the monthly payment significantly by the time they retire. That could mean making extra payments during the early years of the loan, or putting up more than the minimum down payment so the borrower is financing a smaller amount. A 15-year mortgage, which typically translates into lower interest, but higher monthly payments, is another route to a quicker loan payoff.

Look into first-time buyer assistance One of the biggest obstacles to homeownership

is coming up with a down payment to qualify for a loan. Federal and state housing agencies offer assistance for first-time homebuyers, including in many cases former homeowners who haven’t owned a home for at least three years. You can find a list of some programs by state at www.hud.gov. Remember though, while some loan programs allow homebuyers to make a down payment of as little as 3.5 percent of the purchase price, experts say you’ll need to save enough for at least a 20 percent down payment in order to get the lowest interest rate and avoid having to pay private mortgage insurance, or PMI. And they can come with hefty fees and restrictions.

Ask yourself if this is the right time to buy? You may want to own a home, but are you financially ready to take on the commitment that comes with a home loan? Experts recommend borrowers consider the implications of buying a home in their later years, as well as taking on a large loan “This isn’t the situation where if you happen to time your purchase incorrectly when you’re 25 and you buy at the top of the market, you still have most of your life left to recover financially,” says Rick Sharga, executive vice president at home auction site Auction.com.

Consult with a financial planner Buying a home in midlife or beyond has direct implications on retirement. Homeownership can bring stability to one’s monthly housing costs, versus rental housing, as well as tax benefits, but it also carries with it a trove of costs, including property taxes, insurance and maintenance. A good way to evaluate all the ways buying a home, whether in cash or through financing, will affect one’s retirement finances is to enlist a financial planner to go over one’s retirement goals. “You have to sharpen your pencil, sit down and do all the math,” Blayney says. “There’s no one answer.”

Pedestrians walk in and out of the Walgreens flagship store in the Empire State Building, in New York. The nation’s major drugstore chains are opening more in-store clinics in response to the massive U.S. health care overhaul.

Eyebrow waxing and cafe lattes at the drugstore? By TOM MURPHY AP Business Writer At some Walgreen stores, there are health clinics staffed by nurse practitioners, cafes that sell barista-prepared coffee and Eyebrow Bars where trained professionals groom unruly facial hair. Oh, and pharmacists fill prescriptions, too. The nation’s major drugstore chains are moving beyond simply doling out drugs and Kleenex. They’re opening more in-store clinics and offering more health care products in part to serve an aging population that will need more care. It’s also a response to the massive U.S. health care overhaul, which is expected to add about 25 million newly insured people who will need medical care and prescriptions. And drugstores are offering more services as a way to boost revenue in the face of competition from retailers like Safeway and Wal-Mart that have added in-store pharmacies. Beth Stiller, a divisional vice president at Walgreen, the nation’s largest drugstore chain, said the changes are necessary because time-pressed customers have come to expect that they will be able to do more than just fill a prescription at drugstores. “We live in a world

The move toward expanding products and services has been gradual. Up until about five years ago, the major drugstore chains focused on adding stores, not services. Then when states started allowing pharmacists to provide flu shots, it paved the way for drugstores to begin offering other immunizations for diseases like pneumonia and shingles. And after Congress passed the health care overhaul in 2010, drugstores

started adding more instore clinics to help serve the newly insured population that will be created by that law. At the same time, grocers and other big retailers have started beefing up their health care offerings to compete with pharmacies for customers. For instance, Safeway Inc., which runs more than 1,600 stores under the Safeway and Vons names, is adding private rooms in some stores to make its pharmacists more accessible. It also is adding products that focus on a customer’s health and well-being, such as health food or goods for a specific diet, like glutenfree products.

“You have to assume that almost in any future model being drafted, loans will be more expensive,” said David Stevens, CEO of the Mortgage Bankers Association and a former Obama administration housing official. Most Democrats tend to favor a continued government role backstopping the mortgage market because they say it stabilizes the housing market. Many House Republicans, especially conservatives, want to end government involvement and let the free market rule. Given the split, the rival bills stand as opening markers in a long fight. “We all agree that the system with Fannie and Freddie needs to be changed,” said Rep. Michael Capuano, DMass., ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services subcommittee on housing and insurance. “The real question is, do we reform it or kill it the way House Republicans want to.” Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee, said the vast majority of housing industry groups such as real estate agents, mortgage bankers and homebuilders support keeping a government role insuring mortgage securities. House Republicans, led by the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, say their bill to vastly reduce the government’s involvement in the mortgage finance system will be a boon to consumers, spurring competition and innovation in the private sector and giving borrowers more choices. They blame Fannie and Freddie for inflating the market before the housing crash, contributing to the boom-bust cycle. Hensarling, in a statement Tuesday, said his plan “puts private capital at the center of the housing finance system, ends the bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and sustains the 30-year fixed rate mortgage - all goals the president today says he supports.” Hensarling’s bill recently cleared his committee without any Democratic votes and is expected to get a House vote in the next few months. Housing advocates warn that if the government’s role is scaled back too far, mortgages could be pushed out of reach for people with lower credit scores and smaller sav-

ings for down payments. They say 30-year fixed-rate mortgages, long a staple of the housing market, could become harder to find and more expensive for borrowers with modest incomes because lenders would be less willing to offer such longer-term loans without government guarantees. “Those people are now going to be locked out of the system or many will end up paying a premium because of these changes,” said John Taylor, chief executive of the National Community Reinvestment Coalition, a housing advocacy group. Fannie and Freddie own or guarantee nearly half of all U.S. mortgages and 90 percent of new ones. They buy mortgages from lenders, package them as bonds, guarantee them against default and sell them to investors. That helps banks get rid of risk from their balance sheets, freeing up more money to lend. During the financial crisis, as house prices tanked and foreclosures surged, the government rescued Fannie and Freddie from a flood of defaults on risky loans the agencies had guaranteed, many aimed at providing affordable housing for lower-income borrowers. Like many banks, the two companies had relaxed their standards on loans they bought or guaranteed during the boom. High-interest loans, some with low “teaser” rates, were given to risky borrowers. Now under government control, Fannie and Freddie are hugely profitable, and thanks in large part to the housing recovery they’re pumping billions of dollars into the U.S. Treasury. Fannie and Freddie have paid the Treasury $132 billion, more than two-thirds of the bailout. In the Democratic-controlled Senate, a bipartisan bill by Sens. Bob Corker, RTenn., and Mark Warner, D-Va., would gradually replace Fannie and Freddie over five years with a new agency having a more limited role insuring mortgage securities against catastrophic losses. The bill would create a new Federal Mortgage Insurance Corp. that would provide backstop insurance available only after a substantial amount of private capital is used up. Investors would pay insurance fees to the corporation while agreeing to put a substantial amount of their own capital at risk.

Fledgling 3-D printing industry finds home

AOL to buy Adap.tv, posts higher 2Q revenue NEW YORK – AOL Inc. reported a 2 percent revenue increase for the second quarter Wednesday and said it is buying video advertising platform Adap.tv for $405 million, as it bets on the lucrative promise of online video ads. The Internet company earned $28.5 million, or 35 cents per share, in the April-June quarter. That’s down 97 percent from $970.8 million, or $10.17 per share, in the same period a year earlier. The year-ago results included a gain of $970 million from a patent deal with Microsoft Corp. Excluding one-time items totaling 11 cents per share, AOL would have earned 46 cents per share in the latest quarter, surpassing Wall Street’s expectations. Revenue rose 2 percent to $541.3 million from $531.1 million, slightly below analysts’ estimates. Analysts, on average, were expecting earnings of 44 cents per share on revenue of $544.6 million, according to by FactSet. AOL increased its advertising revenue by 7 percent to $361.2 million from $337.8 million. Subscription revenue continued to fall as fewer people signed up for the company’s fading dial-up Internet service. It was down 5 percent to $166 million from $175.5 million. CEO Tim Armstrong said the Adap.tv purchase “will make AOL a clear global leader in the most important growth segment in our industry – online video.” The $405 million purchase price includes about $322 million in cash and about $83 million in AOL stock. Research firm eMarketer expects spending on digital video advertising in the U.S. to grow 41 percent to $4.09 billion this year, up from $2.89 billion last year.

By PETER SVENSSON AP Technology Writer NEW YORK – It looks like a bakery. A warm glow emanates from the windows of big, oven-like machines, and a dusting of white powder covers everything. This space in an anonymous building in New York’s Long Island City neighborhood, just across the river from Manhattan, isn’t cooking up breads and pastries, however. It’s a factory, filled with 3-D printers “baking” items by blasting a fine plastic dust with lasers. When a production run is done, a cubic foot of white dust comes out of each machine. Packed inside the loose powder like dinosaur bones in sand are hundreds of unique products, from custom iPhone cases to action figures to egg cups. Manufacturing is coming back to New York, but not in a shape anyone’s seen before. The movement to take 3-D printing into the mainstream has found a home in one of the most expensive cities in the country. New York’s factories used to build battleships, stitch clothing and refine sugar, but those industries have

In recent years, manufacturing has been leaving the U.S. altogether. But 3-D printing is a different kind of industry, one that doesn’t require large machinery or smokestacks. “Now technology has caught up, and we’re capable of doing manufacturing locally again,” said Peter Wei-

jmarshausen, CEO of Shapeways, the company that runs the factory in Long Island City. Weijmarshausen moved the company there from The Netherlands. Another company that makes 3-D printers, MakerBot, just opened a factory in Brooklyn. And in Brooklyn’s Navy Yard,

where warships were once built to supply the Arsenal of Democracy, there’s a “New Lab,” which serves as a collaborative workspace for designers, engineers and 3-D printers. 3-D printers have been around for decades, used by industrial engineers to produce prototypes. In the past

few years, the technology has broken out of its old niche to reach tinkerers and early technology adopters. It’s the consumerization of 3-D printing that’s found a hub in New York. The technology brings manufacturing closer to designers, which New York has in droves. Shapeways’ production process is fairly simple. Anyone can upload a 3-D design to Shapeways’ website and submit an order to have it “printed” in plastic at the factory. The company charges based on the amount of material a design uses and then ships the final product to the customer.

When a mutual fund says it doesn’t want your money By STAN CHOE AP Business Writer NEW YORK – “No thanks.” That’s what a growing number of mutual fund managers are telling investors who want to hand over their money, and it’s occurring just as many investors are getting comfortable with stocks again. The market is at a record high, and more than 300 mutual funds have closed their doors to anyone who wants to put money in the fund for the first time. The funds run a wide range, specializing in everything from short-term U.S. bonds to

dividend-paying Asian stocks. Of the 315 funds closed to new investors, 56 made the move during the first seven months of 2013, according to data from Morningstar. That compares with 49 for all of 2012 and 53 for all of 2011. It’s actually an encouraging trend, at least for those already in the funds, says Todd Rosenbluth, director of ETF and mutual fund research at S&P Capital IQ. “Funds close to new investors for good reasons,” he said. “They want to make sure they protect existing shareholders.” Mutual fund companies could earn bigger profits by keeping their

doors open, because it means more assets on which managers can collect fees. But having too much money can make managing the fund more difficult. Stock pickers may run out of ideas they feel strongly about. Managers who specialize in small-cap stocks also could see their ownership stakes get too large in individual companies if they continue pumping money into their favorites. That could make selling them later more difficult. “It’s nice to hear that the industry that has been criticized for being greedy is doing things that are taking the interest of shareholders to heart,” said Morty Schaja, chief executive of-

ficer of RiverPark Funds. His company’s RiverPark Short Term High Yield fund (RPHYX) closed to new investors in June. “It’s like we’re in the business of selling cars, and all of a sudden, we don’t want to sell any more cars because there’s too much traffic,” Schaja says. Investors have been getting more comfortable with stock mutual funds recently as well. They put more money into stock funds than they took out for five straight months from January through May, according to the Investment Company Institute, which represents the fund industry.

Algonquin Square helps fill housing need Jerry Kuyper ALGONQUIN – If a shortage of rental units in this city existed, it should no longer be the case. Laura Milliren, marketing director for Marquette Management of Naperville, said construction of Algonquin Square at 2400 Millbrook Drive will be completed by the end of the year. “We will have 220 rental units available,” she said. Milliren indicated interest has been strong. “Already

we have about 20 apartments rented. It has been a good mix with young adults, married couples and older people so are signing up for rentals,” she said earlier this week. Construction began in April and renters began moving into completed portions of the complex in June. An open house is scheduled for Friday at the completed clubhouse, where sales are being conducted 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. For information, call 847-4405391. Monthly rents range from

For the most part, these renters are people who work in the area and can afford the one and two bedroom units, which have pretty nice finishes in them. “We are a property management company and that is why apartments and not condominiums. We felt Algonquin did not have rentals in quite a few years and so we are giving the them something they do not have,” Milliren said.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

Steve Googan, an English actor, writer and producer, said, “The trick is always to write in pairs because if at least two people ind it funny, you’ve immediately halved the odds of its not being funny.” The trick is always to play bridge -- whether in pairs, teams or Chicago -keeping the odds in mind. In today’s deal, what is the right way to play the heart suit for no losers? In the auction, tournament players sitting West would have responded three diamonds, pre-emptive, showing a lot of diamonds and a weak hand. (With game-invitational values and diamond support, West would have responded two hearts, a cue-bid raise.) Then, North would not have been strong enough to advance with three hearts, and it would have been dangerous for South to balance with a takeout double when he had only two spades. As it went, South made a gametry with three clubs, which North rejected. She had good clubs, but did not like the rest of her hand. South has four top losers: two spades and two diamonds. In isolation, the best

play for no heart loser is to lead dummy’s jack, planning to run the eight on the second round, which would have worked. However, West led the diamond 10. East won with his ace and returned the suit. West won, shifted to the spade king, and played another spade. East won and led a third spade. If West had the heart seven-doubleton, declarer had to ruff with his nine. But with this layout, he had to ruff with his ive. Since West could hold two seven-doubletons and only one fourtwo-doubleton, South ruffed with his nine and went down one.

CROSSWORD

HOROSCOPE

▲ ▲

TODAY - In the coming months, you could be acutely aware of how many small parts successfully make up the whole. Understanding this, you might piece together something of considerable worth. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Even though conditions in general look to be rather favorable, you’re likely to be luckiest in matters pertaining to your financial affairs, especially if you’re looking out for others in the process. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- An important, influential contact upon whom you’ve made a good impression is ready to help you achieve important goals. Don’t be reluctant to accept his or her help. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Even though your focus might be devoted to a specific objective, there is a very good chance that you could many achieve other successes, as well. Luck is smiling upon you at present. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Associates are likely to admire and respect your perspectives and opinions, mostly because they’ll sense a certain light about you. It’s called optimism. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Joint ventures look better than usual for you today. Even if you’re already involved in a collective endeavor, your chances for expanding on this involvement have greater promise. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Because your judgment is so keen right now, the conclusions you draw should be exceptionally good ones. You’re not apt to overlook anything crucial. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you’re performing a service for financial remuneration, the pay could turn out to be rather generous. This is because it will be in proportion to the quality of your work. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- A partnership arrangement could turn out to be an exceptionally good one in terms of your social life. There will be much more to this alliance than meets the eye. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Certain necessary tasks or assignments can be easily accomplished today, but could become a problem if you put them off. Make every effort to do them now. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You won’t go so far as to be a Pollyanna, but you will be better than usual at seeing all the positive things that life has to offer. This winning attitude will generate some remarkable developments. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You’re likely to be much luckier with financial matters today than you will be tomorrow, so if you’re smart, you’ll do what you can to make lots of hay while the sun is shining. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Certain plans can now be expanded, producing greater personal advantages than even you dared hoped. This is not a day to be hesitant to think big.

Have a Blast this weekend Lounge Puppets to rock the Blast on the Beach crowd By JAMI KUNZER jkunzer@shawmedia.com

P

ete Greco imagines he’ll still be listening to the music of Iron Maiden, Motley Crue and Bon Jovi when he’s in his 80s. And, as long as the fans still come, he’ll be playing it, too. Greco has provided vocals for the 80s tribute band The Lounge Puppets for the past 12 years. He’s joined by Jason Sochacki on drums, Bill Dixon on bass and Marty Craven on guitar. A top drawing band in the Chicago area for the past decade, The Lounge Puppets began as a tribute to ’80s hair bands and since has branched off into classic rock as well, Greco said. “We don’t knock the era,” he said. “We take it seriously, and try to recreate it the best we can. That involved a light show, confetti cannons. It involves dressing the part. “I can’t tell you how many times we’ve had people come up and tell us we sound better than the artists we’re covering.” The band will perform as part of the Crystal Lake Park District’s Blast on the Beach. The Lounge Puppets take the stage at 6:30 p.m. The event also includes a kids fun fair and arts and craft fair, a treasure hunt, a bags tournament, food vendors, a beer and wine garden and live entertainment by Circus Boy. Molly J. from Star 105.5 will broadcast live from the event. As Circus Boy, Bobby Hunt’s performance features stunts and physical comedy and has been featured on “Ripley’s Believe it Or Not.” Sponsored by BMO Harris Bank, the free event serves as one last celebration of summer as the season comes to an end and school gets back in session, organizers say. “It is at our beautiful Main Beach location, so the scenery alone makes for a breathtaking view and a wonderful way to spend any Saturday enjoy-

ing the meany activities provided by the fun fair vendors, food vendors, craft fair vendors and music,” said Connie Cook, special events coordinator for the Crystal Lake Park District. In its third year, the Blast on the Beach features The Lounge Puppets for the first time. The band’s music not only provides a bit of nostalgia for those who grew up listening to it, but also appeals to younger generations, Greco said. “It was all over the radio. It was all the rage. A lot of those artists still make a living doing what they’re doing,” he said. “The reason it transcends into the younger generation is because the younger generation grows up listening to that music through their parents.”

The band’s members all pursued careers as artists and songwriters and were pursued by major record labels, he said. “We just didn’t have what they wanted at the time,” he said. “What were we supposed to do? Hang up our cleats and give up? Put down our instruments? No, you go out. It’s a release, and it’s a trip back in time,” he said. “We love playing for the people. The fans are the reason we’ve lasted this long. They’re so dedicated. They’re so loyal. The only reason we’re doing it is because of them. “We love doing it as much as they love coming to the show. As long as they keep coming, we’ll keep doing it until we’re old and grey.”

BLAST ON THE BEACH WHEN: 3 to 9 p.m. Aug. 10 WHERE: Crystal Lake Main Beach, 300 Lakeshore Drive COST & INFO: Featuring kid’s fun fair, craft fair, treasure hunt in the sand, food vendors, beer/wine, live music by The Lounge Puppets and children’s entertainment by Circus Boy. Free. Information: www.crystallakeparks.org.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS • 3 to 7 p.m. – Fun fair and craft fair • 4 p.m. – Treasure hunt • 4 p.m. – Bags tournament • 5:30 p.m. – Circus Boy act • 6:30 p.m. – The Lounge Puppets

Awful

‘Elysium’ clever but falls short By JOCELYN NOVECK The Associated Press

O

f all the movie villains we’ve met lately, few are stranger than Delacourt, Jodie Foster’s evil, white-blonde, power-suited and powerhungry defense official in “Elysium,” the much-awaited but ultimately somewhat disappointing new film from director Neill Blomkamp. From her command post on a ritzy space station high up above 22nd-century Earth, a demitasse of espresso at her side, Delacourt doles out orders in a foreign but unrecognizable accent. “Send them to deportation!” she barks, when “undocumented” ships breach her borders. “Get them off this habitat!” Blomkamp, whose MORE sci-fi parable “District ONLINE 9” came out of nowhere Watch the four years ago to earn a trailer to best-picture Oscar nod, “Elysium” at is crystal clear in his inPlanitNorthtentions here. He’s makwest.com ing obvious statements about immigration and universal health care, and whether the frequent references bother you or not will greatly influence how much you enjoy the film. One thing you can’t deny, though, is its visual beauty, and, as in “District 9,” his masterful use of special effects. It’s not for nothing that Blomkamp, at the tender age of 33, has been called a visionary artist of the genre. His “Elysium” – that space station in the sky, looking a lot like present-

“Elysium”

HHH

STARRING: Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharito Copley, Alice Braga PLOT: A factory worker (Damon) takes on a mission to hijack his way onto a man-made space habitat. RATED: R for strong bloody violence and language throughout RUNNING TIME: 1 hour, 49 minutes

day Easthampton – is an enormous wheel, on the rim of which its wealthy residents, having left the teeming and polluted Earth, who inhabit pristine white homes with bright green manicured lawns. Brilliant sunlight dapples the blue waters of their swimming pools. Classical music and clinking glasses echo in the background. For some reason, people seem to speak French. Most importantly, Elysium’s inhabitants are eternally healthy, because each home holds a “healing bay,” which looks like a tanning machine, except it cures all illness. Down on Earth, things are different. Los Angeles in 2154 is grimy, gritty and poor, with minimal medical care. Children look longingly to the sky, dreaming of Elysium. In a flashback, Max, a young boy in an orphanage, promises a young girl named Frey that one day, they’ll go there together. Frey grows up to be a nurse; Max, a car thief. But Max – portrayed by an earnest, committed and perhaps overly grim Matt Damon – has reformed him-

self when, one day, at the hands of a heartless boss, he’s exposed to a lethal dose of radiation in the factory where he works. Within five days, he will die. To get to Elysium and save his life, Max makes a deal with an underground revolutionary (Wagner Moura) who runs a fleet of illegal shuttles. All Max needs to do is kidnap the evil billionaire who runs the factory (a creepy William Fichtner) and, oh yes, export data from his brain. He gets the data, but up in the sky, Delacourt, desperate for the information now in Max’s brain, has activated an agent on the ground. Suddenly Max is being hunted by the vicious Kruger, a character so over-the-top, he takes over the film. It’s fun to watch the manic Sharlto Copley, who played the hunted man in “District 9,” now play the hunter. “Did you think you could get through ME?” he crows, in an extremely heavy South African accent. Eventually, Max will make it to Elysium, and so will the beautiful Frey (Alice Braga), with the critically ill daughter she’s desperate to save. There, despite the always-smart and crafted action scenes, the movie lets us down a bit with a reliance on actionhero formula and some pretty lame dialogue. As for Foster, what could have been an interesting character never really gels into anything but an oddity. But Blomkamp is talented enough that it doesn’t matter too much. If “Elysium” doesn’t nearly live up to “District 9,” it shows enough panache to leave us waiting enthusiastically for his next effort.

RATED: PG for fantasy action violence, some scary images and mild language TIME: 1 hour, 46 minutes VERDICT: “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters,” the second film based on Rick Riordan’s immensely popular books about a dyslexic boy who discovers he’s a demigod, may make some moviegoers feel like they’ve stepped into an actual Greek myth – one that banishes them to the underworld for nearly two hours. Well, maybe not quite the underworld, since a trip down there presumably wouldn’t feature droll quips from Stanley Tucci and Nathan Fillion, who play small but enjoyable supporting roles in this desperately-trying-to-be-epic adventure. But even likable actors can’t obscure the fact that, holy gods on Mount Olympus, this thing is a slog, a movie that dutifully hits its plot points involving prophecies and fleeces without evoking a whiff of spirit or imagination. It’s a shame that the millions of readers who fell in love with Riordan’s classic-meets-contemporary children’s stories have been handed such limp adaptations of the material. The first, 2010’s “Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief” – directed by Chris Columbus, who leeched some but not all, of the life out of the first two Harry Potter movies – was respectable but dull, while “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters,” as directed by Thor Freudenthal (“Diary of a Wimpy Kid”), is both dull and awkwardly executed. It’s less a theatrical release than a Disney Channel special that got dressed up in CGI clothes and was shoved into a multiplex. Like its predecessor, this “Percy” sends its teen hero, played by the likable Logan Lerman, on a quest, this time one that requires him to obtain the coveted Golden Fleece to restore life to a dying tree that protects Camp Half-Blood from evil forces. (Camp Half-Blood, for those who missed the first movie or the books, is the training facility/ safe haven for offspring of one Greek god parent and one mere mortal. That includes Percy, son of a human mom, and Poseidon.) Operation Fleece Pick-up inevitably puts Percy and his band of Zeussian friends in contact

Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston star in “We’re the Millers.” Photo provided

with (duh) some massive beasts beneath the sea. It also briefly zips them through the District of Columbia – or rather Vancouver with a digitally inserted U.S. Capitol jammed in the middle of it – in what qualifies as one of the most laughably inaccurate cinematic portrayals of our nation’s capital in the history of moviedom. The special effects look clunky and unrealistic, whether they involve depicting the mammoth maw that is Charybdis or the single eye on the forehead of Tyson (Douglas Smith), a cyclops and half-brother to Percy who makes his first appearance here. Perhaps recognizing that the eye looks a little off (or lacking the budget to make it look on all the time), the filmmakers frequently mask it with a pair of sunglasses. The result: the moppy-headed fellow son of Poseidon spends most of the movie looking like Brendan Fraser in “Encino Man.” But even Tyson is more pleasant-looking than the cab-driving Gray Sisters (Mary Birdsong, Yvette Nicole Brown and Missi Pyle), who also share a single eye but spew groan-inducing lines (“Oh no, we didn’t!”) that confirm that even the attempts at comedy in “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters” can’t hit the right notes. Well, that’s not entirely true. Fillion gets the one genuinely funny piece of dialogue in the movie, but it’s one that fans of his old TV show, “Firefly,” are most likely

to get. Presumably, they won’t be coming to this movie. And, in case this wasn’t clear, fans of the Percy Jackson books shouldn’t bother either. – The

“We’re the Millers”

H 1/2

STARRING: Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts PLOT: A veteran pot dealer creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico. RATED: R for crude sexual content, pervasive language, drug material and brief graphic nudity TIME: 1 hour, 50 minutes VERDICT: “We’re the Millers,” a raunchy, druggy, profanity-laced comedy starring Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston, is a dog-days movie, the kind of left-handed programmer that slips easily onto screens in August, makes a few bills and exits without much notice. There’s nothing special about it – this is a movie made to exploit the hard-R successes of “The Hangover” and “Bridesmaids” – but it would be dishonest to claim it isn’t funny. The laughs may come in fits and starts, usually by way of sight gags and set pieces, but they do come. And then they go. Sudeikis plays David, a middle-aged pot dealer whose career as easygoing weed man takes a turn

when his boss (Ed Helms) forces him to travel to Mexico and bring back “a smidge” of “marriage-ya-wanna.” At first stymied by the prospect of evading border security, David lights on the idea of making the run in an RV while impersonating the clean-cut dad of an all-American family. He enlists a stripper named Rose (Aniston), a local runaway named Casey (Emma Roberts) and his young neighbor Kenny (Will Poulter) to scrub up, paste on Pepsodent smiles and for 72 hours pretend they can all stand one another. Written by Hollywood technicians too numerous to mention, “We’re the Millers” hasn’t been crafted as much as expertly machined for maximum exploitation, whether it’s Aniston showcasing her killer bod in not one but two steamy strip scenes, or Sudeikis’ bland affability – which in this case is juxtaposed with a nearly unbroken stream of f-bombs and coarse, crass one-liners. The humor derives from the misdirect of such wholesome characters doing and saying such vile things, and several times it works: One of the funniest sequences features Kenny – who really is as innocent as he’s pretending to be – being taught how to kiss by his “sister” and his “mother.” Later, David and Rose fall into an amusingly staged “swinging” encounter with fellow RVers played by Nick Offerman and Kathryn Hahn. The movie’s signature

sight gag involves an errant tarantula and its unfortunate aftermath – a joke that seems to have been pulled off a shelf groaning with similar outre bits, lined up and classified like so many widgets (gigantically swollen body part, check). “We’re the Millers” features some memorable performances, including Offerman, Mark Young as Casey’s hilariously dim, hip-hoppedup suitor and Poulter, who proves to be a sweetly game straight man (in every sense of that word) and knows his way around a TLC song. “We’re the Millers” may not send the audience into any soaring highs, but it does produce a mild buzz. – The

Singersongwriter

Michael

Smith takes stage in Woodstock By JAMI KUNZER jkunzer@shawmedia.com

H

e’s the man behind the songs of more than 30 performers. A songwriter since age 15, Michael Smith still writes daily and hopes to encourage others to do the same. The Chicago-based singer-songwriter will host both a songwriting workshop and a concert Aug. 10 at Unity Spiritual Center, 225 Calhoun St., Woodstock. The workshop takes place 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., followed by the concert at 8 p.m. He’s best known for writing “The Dutchman,” a folk song popularized by legendary folk singer Steve Goodman and recorded by several other artists. But he also performs regularly as a solo act, taking the stage with his acoustic guitar. “I’m not particularly young in my outlook on the way a song is supposed to go,” he said. “I’m kind of stuck in the ’50s and ’60s.” He’s known for more whimsical songs, such as “Zippy,” “Famous in France” and “Move Over Mister Gaugin.” His songs have been recorded by artists such as Jimmy Buffet, Suzy Bogguss, David Allan Coe, Bonnie Koloc, New Kingston Trio and many others. He also became involved with musical theater, writing music for Steppenwolf Theatre Company’s production of John Steinbeck’s “The Grapes of Wrath” in 1987. At a young age, he learned simply to keep writing, Smith said. “I had a lot of funny ideas about writing songs that came from people who didn’t know what they were talking about,” he said. “If I had known then what I know now, it would have been a lot easier, and more of a direct line from trying to write to actually writing.” His workshops are meant to inspire young songwriters. “People would say, ‘It must take an awful lot of talent to do that and make

MICHAEL SMITH IN CONCERT money.’ You just do it a bunch of times and you get good at it. Or you get better at it than you were,” he said. Living in Chicago for nearly 40 years, Smith said he might have missed some potential opportunities through the years due to being “lazy.” “I had a lot of fun being lazy, so I can’t regret it,” he said. “But, sometimes, I think it’s gotten in my way. I also used to tell people what I thought all the time, and now I don’t necessarily tell people what I think unless they ask me.”

WHEN: 8 p.m. Aug. 10 (a free songwriting workshop is offered by Smith before the concert, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.) WHERE: Unity Spiritual Center, 225 Calhoun St., Woodstock COST & INFO: Admission is $12. For reservations and information, call 815-338-5164, email offsquare@gmail.com or visit www. offsquaremusic.org. For more on Smith, visit michaelpetersmith.com.
