Post office demolished for store By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – A former post office in St. Charles is being demolished to make way for an auto parts store. The U.S. Postal Service recently sold the John E. Grotberg Post Office Building to St. Charles Partners LLC for $900,000, according to documents filed Tuesday with the Kane County Recorder’s Office. Located at 1405 W. Main St. near the Valley Shopping Center, the post office was named after U.S. Rep. John E. Grotberg of St. Charles. Grotberg served in the Illinois General Assembly for 12 years before he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1984. He died in 1986 at age 61. Soon, the post office will be gone. Robinette Demolition Inc. began demolishing the structure Tuesday and should be finished sometime this week, said Traci Henderson, who is overseeing the work. Grobmar Investments, a Vernon Hills-based retail shopping center developer, intends to develop the site for

ficials said. A spokeswoman for the Kane County Coroner’s Office said Orlando S. Beville was pronounced dead at the scene at 4 p.m. from multiple blunt force trauma. He was the only occupant in the car, she said. There will be no autopsy,

but the office will await toxicology results, she said. Beville’s family is from Michigan, she said. According to a news release from South Elgin and Countryside Fire Protection District, Beville struck the tree with such force and caused so much damage that

it took 90 minutes to free him. South Elgin Sgt. Randy Endean said it did not appear that Beville was wearing a seat belt. “Wearing a seatbelt would not have affected his survivability after the crash,” Endean said.

Ground zero

Kane County at the center of Republican race for governor

n about eight months, Kane County voters will help select the two men who will face off for the chance to be Illinois’ next governor. But the four men who are seeking the nod to run under the Republican Party’s banner aren’t waiting until next spring to introduce themselves to potential primary election voters in Kane County. Since late spring, Republican gubernatorial hopefuls have dropped into the county numerous times. Three candidates, in particular – State Treasurer Dan Rutherford, Sen. Kirk Dillard and financier businessman Bruce Rauner – have made Kane County events a regular stop on their treks across the state. Sen. Bill Brady, who ran as the Republican nominee for governor in 2010, also has made stops in Kane County. The visits have included appearances at festivals and various photo opportunities. But for the most part, the candidates have centered their Kane County visits on local Republican Party events, or events attended or hosted by local Republican Party officials. On Saturday, for instance, Rutherford, Dillard and Rauner attended Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen’s annual Porky Picnic fundraiser in Aurora, each taking a turn addressing the crowd – estimated to number about 700 – and schmoozing those in attendance. Earlier this month, all four men appeared at a fundraiser dinner in Elburn hosted by the Western Kane County Republican Organization. Political observers and local insiders say Kane County voters should expect to see the candidates even more in coming months as the primary election draws nearer. Barb Wojnicki, a Kane County Board member who serves as chairman of the Kane County GOP organization, said she thinks the candidates all recognize that Kane County voters could prove pivotal in a

potentially close primary election next spring. “We’re a strong Republican voting bloc,” Wojnicki said. “And especially in the center of the county.” She said the candidates can see that the county’s GOP organization is populated by “hardworking, dedicated committeemen” who could help any of the candidates grab the

nomination. Chris Mooney, a political science professor at the University of Illinois at Springfield affiliated with the Institute of Government and Public Affairs in Springfield, said Kane County’s appeal for the candidates is simple – the county offers a relatively large number of both Republican voters and donors.

“In general, if you’re a Republican running for governor, where else are you going to go?” Mooney said. In 2010, for example, election records revealed more than 37,000 Republican voters in Kane County and the city of Aurora cast ballots for governor in the primary election. That amounted to almost 5 percent of the total number

of voters statewide in the 2010 GOP gubernatorial primary. Mooney said the repeated visits by the candidates to Kane County indicate that the race likely will be very close. Mooney said downstate counties also are heavily populated with Republicans, as illustrated by Brady’s success in the 2010 primary. But Mooney noted that in the last primary, three strong Chicago-area candidates split the vote in Kane, DuPage, Will and Lake counties, allowing Brady to eke out the win. Mooney noted that, among the current crop of Republican contenders, only one – Dillard – hails from the collar counties. Rauner is from Cook County, while Rutherford and Brady are both from McLean County. “Downstate has a lot of Republicans, but you have to drive all over hell gone and back to find them,” Mooney said. “If you want to find Republicans, it’s just easier to visit the collar counties.” Early polling in the race has indicated a close contest. Wojnicki said local Republicans tend to favor Dillard, Rutherford and Rauner. She said the repeated appearances by those three candidates appear to have moved the needle in their favor locally. “It’s absolutely important to get in here,” Wojnicki said. “People need to meet their candidates and get a good feel for their platform and issues.”

District 303 OKs deficit budget for fiscal 2013-14 By NICOLE WESKERNA nweskerna@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – St. Charles School District 303 board members Monday approved a budget for fiscal 2013-14 with a little more than a $495,000 deficit, despite achieving some financial goals. Those goals included a tax abatement of debt service that saved the district $2.5 million, and the district also is poised to see its debt service drop in the future. School officials anticipate revenues to total $205,099,250 for that fiscal year, with expected expenditures to total $205,594,600. Officials anticipate a year-end deficit of $495,350, leaving more than $73 million in the district’s fund balance. The budget reflects a 2.13 percent increase in expenditures over the previous year. The board also approved a budget for the Mid-Valley Special Education Cooperative for fiscal 2013-14. The total $15,724,219 budget reflects an 18 percent reduction from the previous year. Enrollment, however, is expected to increase by 17 students from the previous year. As trial testimony concluded earlier this month involving District 303, one person spoke out Monday during the public comment period and one board member addressed some issues involving the Richmond and Davis elementary schools. A group of parents filed a

lawsuit in 2011, weeks after the school board approved a now-implemented plan for Davis and Richmond elementary schools. Davis became a K-2 school, and Richmond – which had repeatedly failed to meet academic standards – became a school for third-, fourth- and fifth-graders. Richmond also adopted other changes, including a longer school day. The parents allege D-303 acted illegally and in contradiction of Illinois School Code regulations. Karla Kurinsky of St. Charles on Monday asked Superintendent Don Schlomann how adequate yearly progress wouldn’t be affected by the merging of the two schools when that was brought up repeatedly at meetings. She said she found it “particularly disheartening” that Schlomann stated that parents simply didn’t want their children attending a “diverse school” when many parents had raised a number of legitimate concerns, including AYP. Toward the end of the meeting, board member Ed McNally expressed concerns about students’ math scores at the schools. He said students who had no risk factors scored about 10 percentage points behind the entire district in math at Richmond, and 13 percentage points behind at Davis. “That is a concern that we’re that far behind in those two buildings in math,” he said.

ST. CHARLES

Aldermen see plans for First Street By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – The west bank of the Fox River soon might be developed along First Street in downtown St. Charles. Bob Rasmussen of First Street LLC told the Planning and Development Committee on Monday that he hopes to break ground on the next phase of the First Street Redevelopment project in April. “I’m encouraged to hear some progress being made, finally,” 4th Ward Alderman Jim Martin said after Rasmussen presented concept plans for the site. The St. Charles City Council has granted seven construction extensions for the project since the final plat was recorded in December 2008.

The site is bordered by Illinois, First and Main streets in downtown St. Charles. The most recent extension is set to expire Aug. 20. The committee voted to extend the agreement by 90 days as First Street LLC continues to develop the concept further. Rasmussen presented aldermen with two plans: one calling for four buildings and another calling for three. Both plans included a parking structure and a mix of housing – apartments and condominiums – and restaurant, retail and office space on the first floor. “We believe very strongly we’re going to bring some great people,” Rasmussen said, referring to future residents. Because Rasmussen presented concept plans, the

committee didn’t take a formal vote but offered their opinions. Several favored the plan with three buildings, which provided more open space along the river. “Looks good,” 1st Ward Alderman Ron Silkaitis said. “I definitely prefer the three-building plan,” 4th Ward Alderman Jo Krieger said. “Like Jim, I am also encouraged to see some progress.” Residents also provided some input. Vanessa Bell-LaSota asked about walkability along the river, and Rasmussen pointed out space between the east-most building and the river. John Rabchuk said he hopes development’s design stands out. “This is a unique spot in St. Charles,” he said.

We inherited a $1 billion deficit and left a $1.5 billion surplus when I was there, running the Edgar administration. We paid our bills in 17 days, and we had an unemployment rate below the national average … .

“Every single constitutional officer in the state of Illinois was a Democrat from Chicago,” Rutherford said. “And here I am, this conservative, Republican, white male from central Illinois, going to run statewide … I’m telling you this, because for the election of 2014, we, as the Republican Party, need to change Springfield and put a Republican in the governor’s mansion.” Rutherford said he reached out to diverse populations in order to win the treasurer post and that is what the Republican Party must do as well. “We, as the Republican Party, have got to accept and embrace people of different color and of different religion,” Rutherford said. “We don’t need to change our positions; we need to represent our positions [to] … communities of

things not in its DNA, and that is “ to live within its means.” Dillard said during the Edgar administration, “We made Michael Madigan the minority leader, and we can do it again.” Madigan is the state’s majority leader.

AURORA – About 700 people packed Chris Lauzen’s 19th annual Porky Picnic fundraiser Saturday at Vaughn Athletic Center, chowing down on barbecue chicken and pork chops. Former Sen. Lauzen, now in his first term as Kane County Board chairman, shook hands, held babies and passed out his contact information to constituents as supporters and friends talked, politicians glad-handed and children played games. The event was highlighted as a public way for the Warriors’ Watch Riders to welcome home Lauzen’s two sons, Marine helicopter pilot Capt. Ted Lauzen, 29, and Navy Lt. j.g. Hans Lauzen. But it also allowed a local platform for three Republican gubernatorial candidates – businessman Bruce Rauner, state treasurer Dan Rutherford and Sen. Kirk Dillard, R-Hinsdale – to state their qualifications and ask for support in the March 18 primary. Sen. Bill Brady, R-Bloomington, did not attend. “I’ve never run for office before,” Rauner said. “My youngest daughter said, ‘Daddy, don’t run for governor. I don’t want you to go to jail.’ That’s a sad commentary on the corruption in our state, but that’s one of the reasons I want to run.” Rauner said his platform is more jobs, less taxes, more support for schools and school choice, term limits of eight years, running the state like a business and breaking the hold government unions have on the state. Rutherford said he won as a Republican for statewide office in a four-way race in 2010. His Democratic opponent was Robin Kelly, as well as candidates from the Green Party and Libertarian Party. Rutherford said he is the only Republican running for governor who has won a statewide race with 50 percent of the vote and with 22 percent of the Chicago vote, “because we worked hard … [and] we went into communities of diversity.”

DISTRICT 304

NORTH AURORA

GHS students will get revised code of conduct

Auroraland Archers looking for new home

By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – All Geneva High School students who are involved in sports or other extracurricular activities will be held to a more effective standard of behavior when the new school year begins this month, officials said. The revised code of conduct will be more fair and equitable, Principal Tom Rogers and Athletic Director Jim Kafer said Monday at the Geneva School District 304 board

meeting. Violations such as drinking or smoking will apply throughout the school year, he said. “We know that teenagers engage in less than desirable behaviors,” Rogers said. “And in the past, the code did not address those types of behaviors that went on outside the season. And we do not feel that is appropriate. Now it will be enforced year-round.” Rogers said students will benefit when consequences are clearly spelled out, and

they are given the opportunity to learn from their mistakes. “We are raising the bar,” Rogers said. “The bar has not been raised on this for quite some time.” Kafer said the previous code was in effect for about 18 years and was effective. However, it needed to be updated. “We believe it’s something that provides for accountability on the part of students,” Kafer said. “You need to recognize when you make choices, there are consequences.”

Area hospitals to receive state grants KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE editorial@kcchronicle.com Presence Mercy Medical Center in Aurora is one of several area hospitals that will receive state grants. Presence Mercy will receive $266,305 to acquire cardiovascular equipment, and Rush Copley Medical Center in Aurora will receive $288,917 for phone system hardware and software upgrades.

Other Kane County hospitals receiving state grants include Presence St. Joseph Hospital in Elgin, which received $187,217 for a new digital X-ray machine, and Sherman Hospital in Elgin, which received $307,075 for laboratory equipment upgrades. Gov. Pat Quinn recently announced $1.4 million in investments to hospitals in Kane and DeKalb counties, part of $24.3 million in the Illinois

By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com NORTH AURORA – Auroraland Archers board members Sunday decided that the club will continue to look for a new home as the Fox Valley Park District gets ready to tear down its building in Lippold Park because it has fallen into disrepair. “We have some people looking into spaces and will proceed with vacating the center,” Auroraland Archers President Karen Larsen said. Auroraland Archers meet in a building at the Fox Valley Park District’s Lippold Park, located along Route 25 near North Aurora. The building also houses the club’s indoor archery range. A structural analysis of the building revealed it needed between $150,000 and $200,000 worth of work to bring it up to code, Larsen said. The park district has decided not to repair the building and has told the club it must vacate the

building by the end of September, Larsen said. Fox Valley Park District public relations manager Jeff Long has said repairing the building is not economically feasible. As club members clean out the building, they will be taking donations for larger items the club has no room to store. Photos of the items can be found on the Auroraland Archers Facebook page, www.facebook.com/auroraland.archers. “It’s better than the items ending up in a landfill,” she said. Larsen said the club hasn’t set a deadline on finding a new home. “We will take [it] one day at a time,” she said.

Funds raised from picnic will help pay for Lauzen’s political expenses • PICNIC Continued from page 7 Lauzen “is the only Republican candidate of either party in Kane County that can pull 900 people together year after year.” Although organizers put the tally at 700, Frasz said the average is 700 to 900 each year. “As for the governor candidates, we have a growing mix of Republican candidates,” Frasz said. “I hope it doesn’t get so big that they neutralize each other.” Frasz said among the three candidates who spoke that night, he said he would likely support Rauner.

“I personally really connect with Bruce Rauner,” Frasz said. “As a businessman and an employer, and someone who’s struggling like all businesses to stay afloat right now, I like his message. And I like the fact that he’s finan-

cially independent, so he isn’t bought by the special interests.” Michael Foote of Geneva said it was too soon to get behind any of the governor candidates. “Time will tell,” Foote said.

“We’ll see what shakes out.” Lois Benson of Batavia said she liked all three candidates for governor. “To hear the comments and see the camaraderie, I think we can get some things going here that are good,”

Benson said. Bob Moga of Big Rock, a former county board member from the 1960s, liked all the governor hopefuls. “They’re all good – as long as they’re Republican,” Moga said.

Hymn writers seek Kickstarter support By ASHLEY SLOBODA

Know more

asloboda@shawmedia.com Jay Mathes is working to give Sunday school hymns a new twist. The 30-year-old member of Redeemer Fellowship in St. Charles belongs to Restoration Project, a songwriting and recording collective that has been restoring old hymns and writing new ones since 2007. “These recordings will not sound like children’s songs,” Mathes said, comparing them to folk rock by such artists as The Civil Wars. College Church in Wheaton funded the group’s debut album in 2008, Mathes said, and its proceeds paid for a follow-up recording in 2011.

Restoration Project is trying to raise $10,000 through Kickstarter to produce its “Firm Foundation” album series of Sunday school hymns with new arrangements and lyrics. To donate, visit www.kickstarter. com/projects/jaymathes/restoration-projects-firm-foundation-album-series. Now, he said, Restoration Project is seeking community support via Kickstarter for its next project, an album series titled “Firm Foundation.” The series will feature Sunday school hymns, such as “This Little Light of Mine,” with new arrangements and

lyrics. “[The Sunday school songs] tend to be on the shallow side when it comes to theology,” Mathes said. “So the goal in doing this recording is as much about bringing theology to adults who have learned these songs and have them ingrained in their minds, but might benefit from a little more theology around the song … as well as trying to bring the theology to children.” Restoration Project needs $10,000 to produce the albums and has given itself 30 days to reach that goal on Kickstarter, an online funding platform for creative projects. By Monday afternoon – four days into the fundraising campaign – the project earned 17

backers pledging a combined $908. “What really appealed to me is the support network which is built into Kickstarter and the community itself,” Mathes said. “It’s this interesting sort of cyclical, almost self-sustaining community where those who are in it help fund other peoples’ projects, and other projects you fund start to fund yours.” Restoration Project won’t, however, get any funding if it falls short of its goal, Mathes said. If that happens, he said, the series’ production will be delayed. “I’m very optimistic and hopeful we’ll be able to reach our goal,” he said. Visit www.resproj.com for

more information about Restoration Project. Its music can be streamed on Spotify, Mathes said, noting churches nationwide also have access to its sheet music. “We suspect there are a number of churches across the country using our songs based on the licensing fees we’ve seen being generated from our catalog,” Mathes said. Has he heard his music at a church service? “Yes, it’s unexpected,” he said. “I’m just happy that they found that some of our songs fit the theme of their service for that day, and I hope that those who hear it and sing along are able to know more of who God is and worship him better.”

Resident wants turtle crossing signs near Oberweis Dairy By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com NORTH AURORA – Jim Levey of Aurora would like motorists to be on alert for turtles trying to cross a busy portion of Randall Road near Oberweis Dairy in North Aurora. Levey said he would like turtle crossing signs to be installed along that stretch of Randall Road. “It’s busy there,” Levey said. “You have trucks and cars and everything. The poor animals don’t have a chance.” In June, Levey said he saw remnants of 30 turtles that were hit as they tried to cross the road. There are wetlands on either side of the road, he said.

“I drive the road every day,” Levey said. “They go back and forth between the wetlands.” High curbs also pose an obstacle to the turtles. “There are so many curbs that the turtles can’t cross,” Levey said. “They end up falling into a sewer.” He rescues turtles he finds in harm’s way. “A couple of years ago, I found a Blanding’s turtle and took it to Cosley Zoo in Wheaton,” Levey said. “They are using it for a breeding program.” Levey said he has approached North Aurora Public Works Superintendent Mike Glock about turtle crossing signs being installed along that stretch of Randall Road. Glock told him the request

would have to be approved by the North Aurora Village Board. North Aurora Village President Dale Berman said Levey

would be welcome to address the board with his idea. At the same time, he wasn’t sure why one group of animals should be given preferential treatment

August is a busy month for most. Last-minute vacations find a spot on the calendar. School shopping, reluctantly, needs to be done. Inevitably, there always is that one thing you just can’t find anywhere. And with the warmer and longer days coming to an end, you realize that project list made last May has only gotten longer. Pause for a breath. Fortunately, as my mom used to say, “this too shall pass.” However, something you don’t want to pass up is next month’s Festival of the Vine, which will take place Sept. 6-8. Twenty-two Geneva restaurants will be creating a culinary display of specialties. I can’t think of a better way to let your taste buds travel around the world. France, Mexico, Italy – flavors of those countries and more will be represented at the 2013 Flavor Fare. Just steps away from the Flavor Fare on North Fourth Street you can raise your glass and peruse and purchase a variety of reds and white wines. Walk across the street and stroll to Third Street, where crafters are literally wrapped around the old courthouse Saturday and Sunday. Don’t miss the fall fresh flower market provided by the Pure Gardener. There will be a food frenzy at the Harvest Stage. Daily demonstrations, all involving items to please your palette, will be on James Street. If the tantalizing smells aren’t enough to get you there, how about the samplings many will offer? Adding to the atmosphere of the festival will be complimentary, horse-drawn, antique carriage and trolley rides. Carriage rides will be offered Friday, Saturday and

OPINIONS LETTERS TO THE EDITOR You have to wonder To the Editor: Thanks to Obamacare, the premiums on health insurance are going down 50 percent in New York. This is in addition to closing the drug donut hole, covering children until they’re 26 and preventing insurance companies from dumping clients if they get really sick and run up extensive medical bills. But, of course, the tea party-controlled House of Representatives has voted 40 or so times to repeal Obamacare or parts of it, and almost all of the GOP governors have refused to participate, even though the federal government pays for a high percentage. You have to wonder who the Republicans are looking out for. It sure isn’t people who want cheaper insurance coverage. Maybe it’s those lobbyist on K Street and their political donors.

The freedom to be young, white and stupid George Zimmerman’s acquittal triggered a serious discussion about the challenges of growing up as a young black male in this country. A friend (a single mom from Las Vegas whose son is 21) told me that her constant message is to “get home safely,” whatever the circumstances and despite any indignities suffered along the way. This warning is unnecessary in most white homes, except with respect to drinking and driving. Our national conversation must contrast this sense of constant fear and alertness one experiences growing up black or brown in America with the total absence of those concerns among whites (like me). We face something similar only when we venture into nonwhite environments, which is rare – and, even then, we know that we

GUEST VIEW John Mehrtens can always return to “our” America. I was recently reminded of what “freedom” means for far too many young whites when I took my kids to the U.S.-Panama soccer match at Soldier Field – it’s unfortunately the liberty to be obnoxious in public without concern for consequences. Secure in their majority status, young whites have carte blanche to be, well, young and stupid in a way that minority kids don’t. We were seated near many young, financially secure white guys, among whom the beer – and colorful language – flowed freely. Misogyny, homophobia and

racism (one patriotic young fan told the Panamanians behind him they should be deported, while an aspiring Jon Bolton reminded his enemies that “we built your canal!” and “we own you!”) are still acceptable in these social circles, and full-volume profanity is so common it’s unremarkable. Meanwhile, my kids (two are white; one is black) are looking at me with these questioning eyes – why are these guys acting this way? I’ll eventually have the joy of explaining that they’ll encounter similar imbeciles throughout their lives, especially if they choose colleges with an extensive Greek system. Meanwhile, I couldn’t help but notice that many of the Latino fans at the game interacted with whites in a way

that was almost deferential, as if acknowledging their status as outsiders or “others.” It would be untrue to argue that this relative freedom leads all white youths to become miscreants, or that its absence dissuades all black and brown youths from misbehavior. But black and brown kids know that certain behaviors (even Trayvon Martin’s clothing) can engender suspicion and hostility, which can quickly lead to tragedy, whereas white youths will be seen as merely young, stupid and harmless – they won’t be profiled or stopped and frisked. This is but one dimension of “white privilege,” which most white folks can’t see and won’t acknowledge. They (we) lack the empathy necessary to even question, much less understand, the circum-

stances in which others have been raised, as evidenced by the hostility showered upon Rachel Jeantel during the Zimmerman trial. Those who believe that racism is in the past and that opportunities are not shaped by skin color are living in a fantasy world. The reality is that my black child is not as free as my white children when it comes to being young and stupid. As long as that is true, this country will be a weak imitation of what it claims to be.

COUGARS SHORT HOPS Up next Cougars (RHP Starling Peralta, 2-0, 0.00 ERA) at Burlington (RHP Pat Lowery, 4-7, 4.69 ERA), 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, AM-1280

Turnstile report Monday’s crowd of 5,174 pushed the Cougars’ season total to 331,493 fans in 56 home games. Kane County attracted 293,960 fans through the same span last season.

Sight seen Center fielder Albert Almora brought out the lineup card and coached first base. Cougars manager Mark Johnson said he’ll continue to do so as long as the team keeps winning. Almora, who was due to come off the 7-day disabled list Monday as he recovers from a bruised bone in his groin, will be re-evaluated this week. Considering it’s a “deep kind of injury in a funky area,” Johnson said, the Cubs organization will “just be pretty conservative” with Almora.

Cubs brass will be excited because Its Advanced-A Daytona affiliate got appreciably better Monday. Hours after promoting second overall draft pick Kris Bryant, a third baseman, from Short-A Boise to Daytona, the Cubs sent Cougars All-Star first baseman Dan Vogelbach to Daytona, too. Vogelbach, the organizational minor league player of the month for July, entered Monday with a .282 average, 17 home runs and 71 RBIs. Daytona is leading its division race in the Florida State League. Vogelbach was born in Orlando. “It’s good anytime you get to go up, and it’s even better when you get to go up to a team that’s competing for a playoff spot with a chance to win a ring,” Vogelbach said. “I’m going to do whatever I can to help them out.”

By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Cougars players and coaches exercise one of two options to get from field level to the home clubhouse at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark. Many were passing through the stands or climbing the stairs in the tunnel beneath them when word came that Kris Bryant would not be taking a similar walk this summer. The parent Cubs promoted Bryant from Short-A Boise to Advanced-A Daytona Monday afternoon, meaning the 2013 draft’s second overall draft pick would bypass playing third base in Geneva.

West Michigan left fielder Jeff Holm, a St. Charles North alumnus Allen said he’s “never really talked to ... exclusively” went 0 for 3 with two of his team’s nine strikeouts. Allen hovered between 90 and 93 mph with his fastball while locating his slider, curve and change-up in the 97-pitch outing. West Michigan’s Adolfo Reina provided the requisite oh-so-close moment when he led off the ninth with a drive down the left-field line that barely landed foul. Reina later struck out before Allen made quick work of the final two hitters.

Drafted 676 picks after the Minnesota Twins selected his younger brother, Joe, first overall in 2001, Jake Mauer didn’t fret when the siblings’ paths took decidedly different turns after they were teammates with then-Twins affiliate Quad Cities

in 2002. “I’m proud of who he is and what he’s doing,” Jake Mauer said. “It’s like Joe says – when people stop paying attention, you know you’re pretty much done.” That’s not quite the case for the younger Mauer, who played closer to Jake than usual when the Twins visited the White Sox over the weekend. Ditto for Bryant. He simply has skipped the “Kane County” rung of the Cubs’ organizational staircase, er, ladder.

Elation ensued. “Even when I got back to the hotel, I still couldn’t sleep,” Allen said. “I finally got some rest [Sunday], which is nice.” Arizona promoted Allen to the Midwest League in May, just as South Bend was in the middle of a strong run to the Eastern Division’s first-half title. Allen, 7-6 with a 4.67 ERA overall, figures to make at least three regular-season starts before the postseason opens Sept. 4. Geneva coach Matt Hahn texted Allen a couple of days before the no-hitter to check up on the season. Allen has remained in touch with his former program through the

years, and spoke with the Vikings during a preseason workout shortly before he left for spring training. “It’s just a cool experience for me to go back there knowing that that’s what I was doing in high school, too, is working the same way they are,” Allen said. There might have been a hiccup last summer, but Allen still is going to the ballpark six years later.

Brad Allen wants no more of this nondescript stuff. His crowning achievement in baseball so far is anything but. A Geneva product in the Arizona Diamondbacks system by way of independent ball, Allen, a 24-yearold right-hander, pitched a no-hitter for Class-A South Bend of the Midwest League on Saturday night. He retired the final 25 West Michigan batters he faced, gave the ball from his final out to his dad, Brian, and commenced taking congratulatory calls and texts from D’backs executives. “You always want to show the organization that you’re a reliable arm, and you always want to make a name for yourself,” Allen said. “And obviously, things like throwing a no-hitter will help build that.” There’s no “i” in team, but there is one in impress, the objective that’s consumed Allen since he signed with Arizona in December. Undrafted out of Arkansas State in 2011, Allen joined Rockford of the independent Frontier League shortly after college.

ST. CHARLES MEN’S GOLF TOURNAMENT

Daly wins championship flight Self-confidence spurs defending champ to repeat By DENNIS D. JACOBS editorial@kcchronicle.com ST. CHARLES – It wasn’t exactly Joe Namath guaranteeing victory in Super Bowl III, but Matt Daly’s comments heading into the final weekend of the St. Charles Men’s Tournament at Pottawatomie Golf Course made it clear he fully expected to successfully defend his title. “I didn’t guarantee it,” Daly insisted after defeating Chris Thomas, 5 and 3, in the championship match Sunday, “but it was sure in my mind. It was the focal point of the week.” After prevailing in a grueling 20-hole match against 2011 champion Jon Woods in the quarterfinals, Daly said he was “going to win the show.” He backed up that expression of confidence with a dominating 7 and 5 victory over David Lanciotti on Saturday and by going 4-up on Thomas at the turn. “I had a lot of good starts and really didn’t give anything back,” Daly said. “Everything was working.” “My front nine, I didn’t play too well,” Thomas said. “The back side, I started to turn it around. I hit a few good shots and that got me going again, but it was just too big a deficit to come back from at that point.” Daly, 28, was 5-up with five holes to play, but Thomas put a beautiful hooking approach shot on the 378-yard, Par-4 No. 5 to within six feet of the pin to win the hole and stay alive. Thomas ran into trouble off the tee on No. 6, however, going wide right of the trees lining the right side of the fairway. His next two shots both solidly connected with tree trunks. Meanwhile, Daly’s second shot on the hole from the left rough was one of the highlights of his round. “That last 8-iron from a buck-70 something … out of a [bad] lie to five feet [from the pin], yeah, I’ll take it,” Daly

HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS: CONCUSSIONS

By IAN MATTHEWS editorial@kcchronicle.com

Glimpses all we have of Bears’ offense so far BOURBONNAIS – The voice was unmistakable as it originated behind the line of scrimmage and traveled into the ears of Bears players lining up on offense. “We’ve got work to do!” the voice barked. “We’ve got work to do!” the voice repeated. Who says coach Marc Trestman requires multisyllabic words to motivate his team? Ditch the thesaurus. Forget the corporate seminar lingo. After 18 days, 13 practices and one preseason game, the status of the Bears’ offense can be whittled to one simple message. The Bears have work to do. Today, the Bears will wake up in their dormitory beds and march toward the fields at Olivet Nazarene University for the 14th and final practice of training camp. It will mark the fans’ final look from the sidelines before the Bears head north with their newlook offense. What have we seen? What have we gained? What have we learned? Glimpses. Nothing more. Two-and-a-half-hour practices that represent a one-Mississippi in the Bears’ master plan. Ask Trestman. “I know we can always accentuate what we’ve seen

out here, but what we’ve seen out here is not the games,” Trestman said. “It’s not the real games. We’ve got to keep that perspective, and we’ve got to look at the big picture right now.” The big picture will be a collage featuring at least 16 snapshots. The Next up first will come Sept. 8 when vs. San Diego, the Bears host 7 p.m. Thursday, the Cincinnati ESPN, AM-780, Bengals in the regular-season 105.9-FM opener. In the days leading up to that game, the Bears will unveil a game plan. It will be intricate, exciting and tailored to showcase the Bears’ strengths while exploiting the Bengals’ weaknesses. We’ll see almost none of that game plan, of course. Not until after the opening kickoff. Backup quarterback Josh McCown offered a few of the most common glimpses from camp. “I think you do see glimpses of the ball getting out of our hand, getting the ball out quickly, finding completions, things like that,” said McCown, an 11-year NFL veteran. “But there’s still a lot

here tonight,” Trevino said. “I think any concussion can be a big deal, but the one I experienced involved bleeding in the brain. Mine happened playing softball, and the doctor told me if he didn’t know what happened, he would have thought I was hit by a truck.” Injuries to Trevino, along with student-athletes around the country, are bringing the dangers of concussions to public consciousness more than ever before. Preventive measures have vastly improved, but the panel made it known that it is very difficult to try and prevent concussions, much less eliminate them. So, through a collective effort, the athletic training staff

at Geneva has put steps and plans in place to try and deal with concussions as best they can. Durand and his staff are at all sporting events that have the highest concussion rates – namely football, soccer, baseball, softball and volleyball. Because concussions are so hard to diagnose, all incoming athletes at Geneva must complete the imPACT test, an assessment that provides the training staff a baseline to go off of when dealing with potential brain injuries. The test provides the training staff more insight into each athlete and checkpoints when dealing with a potential concussion. Upon diagnosing a concus-

sion, each athlete visits Babka for further evaluation and does not return to play until passing a five-step, physical process. Once cleared, the athlete will still be watched closely as post-concussion symptoms can still pop up weeks and even months after the athlete suffered the concussion. The importance of the event was not lost on Trevino, a small-business owner. “I’m still recovering so anything our kids do in sports, concussions are always a big deal,” Trevino said. “This was a great thing and I wish there were more people here. But, this is a good start with a lot of information which was very, very helpful.”

VIEWS Tom Musick of things to correct and work on after that first [preseason] game.” It seems that way during practice, too. On one play, Alshon Jeffery readjusts his route to make a leaping catch along the sideline. On another, Jay Cutler is swarmed by defenders and floats a pass out of bounds. But this is training camp. Even throwaway passes carry a purpose. “Sometimes, there’s guys not open, so you’ve got to throw it away,” McCown said. “It’s that fight to know that’s still a good play, too. You don’t want to have a lot of them, but at the same time, if you’re not getting sacked and you’re not throwing picks, you’re helping your team.” Perhaps the Bears’ second preseason game Thursday will represent something more than a throwaway pass in the grand scheme of the season. Probably not. When it comes to NFL action in August, the flavor is decidedly vanilla. “In the first game, we’re not running all of our stuff,” quarterback Matt Blanchard said. “We’re running a lot of base stuff, so you’ve got to be productive with the plays you’re given.”

GENEVA – Omar Trevino scanned the auditorium at Geneva High School on Monday night and wished he saw more student-athletes at an education presentation called “Concussion Education: From injury to return to play.” Trevino, a Geneva resident, circled the date on the calendar and made sure to attend the event that included Geneva’s head athletic trainer, Bill Durand, Geneva team physician Dr. Erik Bartel, and Cadence Health’s Dr. Brian Babka. Babka and Durand spearheaded the talk that centered on educating parents and stu-

dent-athletes about concussions, in what still is a very unknown and scary injury. Trevino nodded and listened intently as Durand and Babka outlined the steps that both the high school and its athletic staff have taken over the years to better treat concussions. It was six years ago that Trevino was playing softball and had a 12-inch ball hit him head on in the temple, causing internal bleeding and head trauma. Trevino is still dealing with symptoms today, hampering his ability to function normally on a daily basis. “It’s such a personal thing for me and my family – especially because my son plays baseball and football – to be

KOVELS: ANTIQUES AND COLLECTING

BY TERRY KOVEL KOVELS.COM Some old pieces of dual-purpose furniture are so useful they should inspire new designs. One such famous design is a convertible “desk and chair” originally designed by Stephen Hedges of New York City in about 1854. The desk has an oval top and four legs. It opens and a chair with a rounded back swings out so it can be used to write at the half-round desk. It has drawers, a leather writing surface and casters on its legs. When not in use, the desk could be put back together and used as a plain table about 35 by 29 inches. The desk-chair was patented, but not for the design just for the hinge mechanism. About 17 of these desks are known, and several of them are in museums. But 19th-century “brown” furniture is not selling well to average collectors. One of these desks sold at a 1998 Christie’s auction for $29,900. Neal Auction Co. of New Orleans sold one for just $4,481 in November 2012. *** Q: I have several crockery jars about 6 inches tall stamped “Weyman’s Snuff.” Can you tell me when they were made and what they’re worth? A: George Weyman opened a tobacco shop in Pittsburgh in 1822. He was the inventor of Copenhagen snuff. The company became Weyman & Bros. in 1870, so your jar was probably made before then. There were several changes in name and

ownership until it became the U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Co. in 2001. That company still is in business. Your Weyman’s Snuff jar is worth about $25. *** Q: A relative left me a Swissmade clock called a “Twin Dial Alarm Clock.” It has a clock face on both sides and still runs. The box it’s in says the maker is Semca. Please tell me something about it and what it’s worth. A: Semca Clock Co. was based in Germany, but it had an office in New York City. It made a lot of styles of clocks and wristwatches, including a few double-face clocks like yours. Your alarm clock dates from the middle decades of the 20th century and was designed to sit on a shared nightstand between two single beds. Another, larger double-face model was made to sit on a partner’s desk. We have seen your clock sell online for $25 to $50. *** Q: My son inherited a cast-iron mechanical bank that has been in the family for five or six generations. I think it’s called a “Hoover bank.” It’s in the form of a man sitting in an office chair with one hand extended. When you put a coin in his hand, he puts it in his jacket pocket and nods his head. The bank has its original paint and has never been refurbished. We are curious about its value. A: The design for your son’s mechanical bank, known as the “Tammany Bank,” was patented by

This piece of furniture can turn into a table or remain a rounded desk and chair. It sold for $4,481 at a Neal Auction Co. sale last November. It was made by a New York City furniture craftsman in about 1854.

John Hall of Watertown, Mass., in 1873. It also has been known as “Little Fat Man Bank” and “Boss Tweed.” Tammany Hall was a New York City political organization, and William “Boss” Tweed was its corrupt leader. He was jailed for embezzlement in 1873. J. & E. Stevens Co. of Cromwell, Conn., introduced the bank in 1875 and continued making it for about 45 years. Early versions of the bank did not include its name, but later banks were labeled “Tammany Bank” on the side of the chair. Both 1873 and 1875 patent dates can be found on the bank. In most versions, the man is wearing gray pants. A rare version with brown pants sells for the highest price, $500 to $600. The bank is very popular and has been reproduced. *** Q: I would like some information about a TV lamp that has been in my family since the 1950s. It’s a figural

A: Figural TV lamps were popular for one decade, the 1950s. Television sets were being purchased by families across the country, and many people thought watching TV sets without indirect lighting could harm their eyes. Leland Claes (1916-2000) of Turlock, Calif., designed a lot of TV lamps shaped like cats or dogs. The majority of Claes lamps were manufactured by William H. Hirsch Manufacturing Co. of Los Angeles. The lamp sat on top of a TV set and shed light through the animal’s eyes or open back. Most Claes TV lamps sell for under $100, but yours is extremely rare and could bring 10 times that if it’s in perfect condition. *** Q: I own a white linen tablecloth with 12 matching napkins. The tablecloth is rectangular and measures 80 by 64 inches. The napkins are 21 inches square. The set is in its original box and has never been used. The box is labeled “Trousseau Linen Outfitters, Inc., Originators of the Famous Trousseau Linen Outfit, 187 No. LaSalle St., Chicago 1, Ill.” I have been told linen tablecloths are no longer made. Please tell me how old the set is and what it’s worth. A: A big clue to the age of your set is the address. The use of a singledigit postal code means your set was made between 1943 and 1963. It probably dates from the 1940s or early 1950s. Linen tablecloths and

20 Quick! Before it melts! Solve the puzzle frozen in my ice cubes and you will have good luck!

© 2013 by Vicki Whiting, Editor Jeff Schinkel, Graphics Vol. 29, No. 35

This trick takes few times until a little practice. Do it a yo perform it for yo u can do it well. Then, ur friends and fa mily!

Fill in the blank squares with numbers to make the sum of each side and each diagonal add up to 15.

scissors small glass clear plastic lid

Tab

Prepare your props Place the glass upside down on the plastic lid. Trace around the glass to make a circle, drawing a little tab as shown. Cut just outside the circle to make it a little bit larger than the mouth of the glass. Be sure to cut out the tab.

Put down the pitcher and cover the mouth of the glass with the hand hiding the plastic circle. Secretly place the circle over the mouth of the glass, covering the entire top.

Perform the trick Place your pitcher and glass on a table. Hide the plastic circle in the hand you won’t use to pour.

Pick up the glass with your other hand and turn it over quickly, but gently. Slowly remove the hand holding the top of the glass. If done right, the circle will stick to the glass and the water won’t spill out.

Most of the ocean doesn’t freeze. Why? Salt water freezes at a lower temperature than fresh water.

Pour water from the pitcher into the glass, until it begins to overflow. Say “I can tip this glass of water over my head and keep it from pouring out.”MM Lift the glass over your head and say “Magic tricks are hot work. I think I’ll oo cool off.” Then ooo gently push on the tab. The plastic circle will come off and the water will fall on you!

Explanation: The salt melts the surface of the ice. The coldness of the ice then refreezes this water, trapping the thread and freezing it to the ice.

1. Fill your bowl with warm water. 2. Gently place the egg in the water. What happens? The Dead Sea in Israel is the saltiest body of water in the world. You could float on top of the water and read Kid Scoop!

1. Remove the egg and stir at least one cup of salt into the water. Stir until you can’t see any grains of salt. 2. The water will look cloudy. Place the egg in the salty water. What happens?

Did the egg float? Adding salt to water makes it heavier. In salty water the amount of water the egg displaces weighs more than the egg and the egg floats.

‘Jobs’ not a full fledged biography By ED SYMKUS More Content Now This is not a full-fledged biography of the brilliant inventor-entrepreneur Steve Jobs. Any movie tackling that kind of project would take a week to watch. Instead, in a series of snapshots that focus in on Jobs at different points in his career, and that stick mostly to the two-decade period between the early-’70s and the early-’90s, we get an idea of what he was all about, what made him tick, rather than a detailed life story. The film’s brief opening scene is actually set later, in 2001, when Jobs steps up in front of a small gathering of his employees, proudly reaches into his jeans pocket, and introduces his then-newest cool gadget, the iPod ... to rousing applause. But it’s the film’s sudden switch to a series of flashbacks, to just after he had dropped out of college but still hung around on the campus, to when he dropped acid with friends and had a positive, eye-opening trip, to when he was working as a game designer at Atari, that the snapshots start to form into a picture of Jobs. In an excellent performance by Ashton Kutcher, who kind of looks like the younger Jobs, and with makeup to help in his later years is his spitting image, it’s revealed that Jobs was an idea man, whose brain was always working overtime, but who needed and appreciated the help of his techno wiz pal Steve Wozniak (Josh Gad), who is only referred to as Woz throughout the film, to bring the ideas to physical fruition and to create the groundbreaking company called Apple. Jobs, who died in 2011, was a well-documented

He is regarded in many circles as a saintly man who only did good things. But screenwriter Matt Whitely had no qualms about presenting Jobs with warts galore. So, along with all of the positive things he did, we also get his dark side, the moments where, in the name of doing what he wholeheartedly believed was right for Apple, he stepped on anyone – including close friends and longtime associates – who he didn’t believe was operating at his or her full potential. The film traces, perhaps a little too quickly, his meteoric rise, his out-of-left-field fall, and his Phoenix-like second rise. It’s really more of a business story, setting up the relationships Jobs

had with the folks he worked with to create Apple – in his stepdad’s garage – and later getting into how he got along and fought with the people who formed the board of Apple and who didn’t like the way Jobs was managing things. There are likely going to be disagreements about which half of the film is more interesting or entertaining. The first half sticks with introducing person after person, each one a piece of the machine that would eventually become Apple, with Jobs at the center of all of the activity. The second half concentrates on the troubles brought on by success, and Jobs’ endless battles with board members who thought only of bottom lines, while Jobs’ was far more concerned with how his prod-

ucts would help the public. It’s Kutcher’s remarkable acting range (who knew?) that keeps things fascinating, even though that second half finally does start to slow down the film’s momentum. Josh Gad, as Woz, is mostly more fun to watch, and Dermot Mulroney, as investor-turned-board member Mike Markkula gives the film’s most balanced performance. There’s a great story to be told about Steve Jobs. The film does quite well at getting out a good chunk of it. Who knows, maybe it’ll take a sequel to complete the picture.

• “JOBS” is written by Matt Whitely; directed by Joshua Michael Stern; and stars Ashton Kutcher, Josh Gad and Dermot Mulroney. The film is rated PG-13.

Refusing to answer tough adoption questions Dear Abby: My husband and I have two wonderful sons who joined our family through adoption. While we don’t broadcast that they are adopted, it sometimes comes up in conversation. When it does, people inevitably ask, “What happened to their ‘real’ parents?” or, “Why were they given up?” I know folks are curious, but these comments are hurtful. The details of my sons’ lives are private, to be shared as they grow in age-appropriate ways. They know they are adopted, but are too young to know the details surrounding their lives prior to joining our family. I do not want to have an indepth conversation with every person who asks a nosy question. These questions always seem to come up when the kids are around and I feel unprepared to answer them. Do you have any suggestions for a witty and confident response that can shut down these questions? I don’t want

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips my boys to be ashamed that they were adopted, but I also don’t want the details out there for public consumption. – Adopted Mom In Indy Dear Adopted Mom: That someone would be so insensitive as to pose those questions in front of the children is disconcerting. While I can’t think of a “witty” response that would deter the questioner, I can think of one that would be effective. Look the person in the eye, smile and say, “Oh, that’s a long story, but look at what beautiful sons I have. I feel truly blessed.” Dear Abby: My parents died when I was a teenager. In the years since I have noticed strange things. While I don’t find pennies, I do often see streetlights turn off right before I drive under them. I drive

a lot at night and in the early morning because I work graveyard shifts, and it seems to happen almost every day when I go to work or come home. I guess it could be coincidental. But a friend suggested years ago that it’s my parents letting me know they’re watching over me. I want to believe, yet I feel skeptical at the same time. Have you ever heard of anything like it? – Lights Out In Federal Way, Wash. Dear Lights Out: The only time I have heard of anything like what you’re experiencing has been when I happened to change channels and come upon a television show about the paranormal. More important than what I believe is what you choose to believe. If the reassurance that your parents are watching over you brings you comfort, then I am all for it. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Over-the-counter products can help dry eyes Dear Doctor K: I have dry eyes. What are my treatment options? Dear Reader: Tears are not just for crying. Your eyes are constantly making small amounts of tears to keep the surface of the eye and the underside of the eyelids moist. Tears also contain fat and mucus, substances that cleanse the eyes. Except when you cry, tears are made in such small amounts that the liquid doesn’t spill out of the eyes. You don’t notice that you’re making the right amount of tears, but you do notice when you’re not making enough. Tears are made by tiny glands in the eye called lacrimal glands. Dry eyes occur when your eyes don’t produce enough tears. As your tear production drops off, your eyes can burn or feel itchy, scratchy or irritated. It may suddenly become difficult to wear contact lenses. You may experience a buildup of sticky mucus in your eye, or find it difficult to cry. Your eyes may become more sensitive to light. Surprisingly, dry eyes can cause excessive tearing. These tears are “irritant tears,” made in reaction to your dry eyes. They contain more water and less fat

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff and mucus than regular tears. As a result, they just run off the eyes without lubricating them as healthy tears do. There are many causes of dry eyes: allergic reactions, irritation from wearing contact lenses, an eyelid inflammation (a condition called blepharitis), and a disease called Sjogren’s syndrome. Dry eyes become more common when you get older, as tear production normally drops off. Women are more likely than men to get dry eyes. So are people with diabetes and people who live in places with low humidity. Certain commonly used medicines reduce the production of tears, including antihistamines, birth control pills and selective serotonin receptor antagonists (SSRIs), often used to treat depression. Over-the-counter artificial tears mimic the makeup of natural tears, and their regular use effectively treats most cases of dry eye. Lubricating ointments can treat more serious cases, but they

tend to blur vision, so apply them at bedtime. (I’ve put a table of over-the-counter dry eye products on my website, AskDoctorK.com.) In severe cases, your ophthalmologist may need to insert tiny plugs made of collagen or silicone into your tear drainage ducts. The plugs help both natural and artificial tears stay on your eye longer by preventing them from draining out of the opening in the inner corner of the eyelid. Another approach is to increase tear production. Topical cyclosporine (Restasis) decreases inflammation in the tear-producing glands, which can lead to better tear production. If a medication you’re taking is contributing to your dry eye, changing it may help. You can also reduce dry eye symptoms by avoiding dust, pollen and cigarette smoke. Use humidifiers, which add moisture to indoor air. Also, stop wearing contact lenses while you have dry eye symptoms.

Woman’s message to teens is inspirational Dr. Wallace: I empathize and relate to the young girl who contacted you and who sees her older sister as more attractive and more popular in her high school. I am the middle sister of five girls in my family. I was always seen as the “geeky” one, and, at times, high school was very difficult because my exceptional grades were socially isolating. My appearance was regularly mocked by boys and girls alike. I was frequently told that I would never have a boyfriend and eventually shied away from most social interaction. I entered college believing that my only value was my intellectual abilities. That perception changed in my freshman year of college. In college, getting good grades and studying becomes much more valuable in a social setting. My willingness to help others in their studies also allowed me to find a greater number of friends and acquaintances. I soon found myself balancing an active social life with my rigorous studies and succeeding in a way that many could not. In addition, I had a great surprise: I wasn’t as unattractive as the fellow students in my high school had led me to believe. Once I left the environment where everyone had a preconceived notion about me and who I was, people could see the beautiful, intelligent, caring young woman who had blossomed in high school under the unappreciative noses of my peers. I am now a suc-

Trust me when I say many young ladies who read your message will be inspired to feel good about themselves. Dr. Wallace: I’m 19, married, and soon to be a mother. My husband and I both want our first child to be a son. This causes my older sister to become very upset. She’s a lovely lady, and I love her very much, but she’s an active feminist. She says that I should answer the question of wanting a boy or a girl with, “I really don’t have a preference as long as it’s a healthy baby.” Do you see anything wrong with us wanting a son first? – Angie, Merrillville, Ind. Dear Angie: Your sister can say what she wants whenever she is going to be a mother, and you have the right to speak your mind now that you’re about to enter into that wonderful stage known as motherhood. • Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers.

CROSSWORD

SUDOKU

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

• Tuesday, August 13, 2013

CELEBRITY CIPHER

To what was this comment referring? “The Chip also reduces the damage done by bandits. They still steal drinks and cheers along the course, but no longer scramble the paying runners’ results. No entry fee, no Chip, no time or place.” For a bridge declarer, it can be a case of no entry card, no contract success – as in this deal. How should South plan the play in three no-trump after West leads the heart four and East puts up his 10? With all of those aces and kings, that South hand is worth a two-club opening bid even if your range for a two-no-trump opening is a good 20 to 22. South starts with six top tricks: two spades, two hearts (given the lead) and two diamonds. He can establish at least three club tricks, but if the defender with the ace can hold up that card until the third round of the suit, declarer will need a dummy entry. This can be only the heart queen. First, this requires West’s having the heart king. That is highly likely because without the king, West would have probably led the nine from a holding like 9-8-7-4-2. Second, South must win the first trick with his ace, not with his jack. Then, after driving out the club ace and winning East’s shift, declarer can lead a heart toward dummy’s queen to generate that vital entry. The opening observation was made by Joe Henderson about the Boston marathon. To stop nonentries suddenly seeming to be doing well, each runner has a microchip in his laces. This also gives everyone an accurate startline-to-finish-line time.
