Ex-mayor again facing sex charge Former Genoa official, acquitted in past case, now accused of groping real estate agent By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI

David Rood, 80, of Kingston

KIRKLAND – Genoa’s former mayor, who was acquitted of sex abuse in 2001, is expected in court Tuesday on recent charges of grabbing a woman and rubbing against her. David Rood, 80, of the 8800 block of North Rood Road in Kingston, was charged with criminal sexual abuse and bat-

tery of a real estate agent who was showing him a house April 25 in Kirkland. The more serious charge, criminal sexual abuse, is a felony typically punishable with probation or up to three years in prison. Rood initially faced only a misdemeanor, which was filed May 6, but prosecutors added the more serious charge June 17 after a review of the case. When reached for comment

Thursday, Rood declined to comment on the allegations but said the alleged victim had “done a lot for him” in previous business dealings. Court documents allege Rood grabbed the woman by the waist, placed his hands underneath her clothing and rubbed against her leg. Rood faced similar charges in August 2000, when he was mayor of Genoa. In that case, a different woman alleged that Rood

grabbed her arm, pulled her toward him and pressed himself against her in rural Kingston on April 28, 2000. In November 2001, DeKalb County Circuit Judge Douglas Engel acquitted Rood of those charges, finding special prosecutor Gregg Ingemunson fell “far short of proving the case,” the Daily Chronicle reported at the time. Rood was asked to resign as

Compassion on a short leash

mayor by all but one of the city’s aldermen. He refused, but did not run for re-election. Before the trial started in that case, Rood’s attorney, Gary Johnson, claimed the woman, who was not involved with Genoa city government, wanted to make Rood “one of her many trophies in her long history of civil litigation” and claimed the woman’s finances were in dire straits.

By FELIX SARVER DeKALB – Violet has come a long way from being abandoned in the woods to sniffing around Tom Van Winkle’s office in DeKalb. Van Winkle decided to foster Violet after an operation to remove her swollen, damaged eyes; he eventually adopted her. The original owners of the 11-year-old English cocker spaniel used her for breeding puppies and left her in the woods to fend for herself. Her eyes had to be removed to save her life. She was found in a forest preserve in River Forest, a Chicago suburb, and taken into care by the Animal Care League in Cook County. Now she’s under the care of Van Winkle, the new associate executive director of TAILS Humane Society in DeKalb. “She and I have become very bonded and she does a good job finding her way around the house,”

ganizations across the nation. In DeKalb County, both TAILS Humane Society and DeKalb County Animal Shelter are committed to

caring for hundreds of animals they receive. TAILS Humane Society takes in 2,500 animals a year. The DeKalb County Animal Shelter will receive more than 300 cats and dogs a year.

“Whenever the economy is bad, donations decrease along with everything else.” – IfY\ikXJ_fX], DeKalb County Animal Shelter director

CHICAGO – An independent panel including former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald will suggest reforms for scandal-plagued Metra and other Chicago-area transit agencies, under an executive order issued Thursday by Gov. Pat Quinn. The move follows allegations of politically connected hiring at the commuter rail agency and questions about power structure there and at its overseeing board, Gov. Pat t h e R e g i o n a l Quinn Transportation Authority. A fifth Metra board member resigned Thursday. “There needs to be a fresh look of the whole transit system for the public,” Quinn told reporters after an unrelated event in Chicago. “I hope they have some recommendations that can be acted upon quickly by the Legislature. Clearly, Metra, in particular, needs fundamental overhaul.” Quinn, who has formed such panels before, previewed the idea last week in the wake of criticism of the $718,000 buyout of former CEO Alex Clifford’s contract. Clifford claims he was pushed out for resisting pressure on hiring and salary issues from politicians, including House Speaker Michael Madigan. A state inspector general and a legislative ethics panel are investigating the allegations. The latest board member to step down, Stanley Rakestraw, submitted his resignation to avoid “any potential controversy” over a residency requirement. He moved to downtown Chicago after a fire at his suburban home but continued to hold a seat representing the city’s suburbs. Rakestraw’s resignation leaves the Metra board with six members, the minimum

New look at supplies and demands Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting ugly out there. Tempers are flaring, costs are fluctuating, regulations are tightening, supplies are dwindling, demands are escalating, and information is unclear. Is this about running a business in a tough economy? Nah. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talking about school supplies. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to find somebody who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get at least a slight buzz from buying new stuff that fosters thinking, creativity and achievement. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an overstatement to say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the best parts of a new school year. The blogosphere crackles with emotion about this annual ritual. I particularly liked the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Minding My Nestâ&#x20AC;? blog that included nice photos and a recommendation to hydrate before beginning. But the school supply ritual, in many places and in many ways, has spun out of control. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hypocritical for me to write this because thanks to my wonderful spouse, our sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supplies were prepackaged and waiting for us. But ironically, the prepackaged route also feels hypocritical because I would have HATED not being able to touch each potential item when I was a kid. I also donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean this to be a critique of schools or teachers. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of blame to go around. For one thing, retailers have seized upon â&#x20AC;&#x153;back to school seasonâ&#x20AC;? as a ma-

THE FINE LINE Jason Akst jor revenue stream. What time frame defines this season? The Boston Globe said it runs article defined it as â&#x20AC;&#x153;July through September.â&#x20AC;? A quarter of a year? Besides that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;school supplyâ&#x20AC;? sales now mean nearly anything: Best Buy had a back-to-school sale a couple weeks ago on giant, flat-screen TVs. Back-to-school spending is significant. The National Retail Federation said last year, because of â&#x20AC;&#x153;a combination of pent-up demand and a growing population of school children,â&#x20AC;? Americans went hog-wild. The retail federation notes that this year it looks like things will cool off a bit, but American families are predicted to spend an average of $635 on apparel, shoes, supplies and electronics, down from $689 last year. Families spend about $91 on supplies for schoolage children. Back-to-school spending is expected to reach $26.7 billion, and if you add in back-to-college spending, the total comes to $72.5 billion. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of crayons. According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel (citing National Retail Federation data), backto-school spending accounts for 11 percent of U.S. consumer spending each

year, ranking it second to the holiday spending season. I love school supplies, schools and teachers. But I think we as a society might be going overboard. The lady who cuts our sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hair talked of going to a store to find a specific type of glue stick. A friend of ours mentioned being unable to find the exact spiral notebook specified in the list. One of my best friends, a local mom, puts this excess best. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been to the school supply section three times. Once, I saw a woman nearly in tears,â&#x20AC;? she told me in a Facebook message. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twice, other parents, without provocation from me, went off on a rant about how much they hated the process. It seems like clarity on the list is an issue (too much or too little).â&#x20AC;? My friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list includes pencils. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had to be Ticonderoga and pre-sharpened. He had to have four plastic pocket folders with prongs, but they could only be blue. Blue was sold out at the two big-box stores as a result. He also needed four prongless plastic folders (one each of four colors). At the same time, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;wipesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; appeared on the list. What kind? Baby, hand, antibacterial surface, flushable?â&#x20AC;?

Ill. governor signs teen tanning ban By CARYN ROUSSEAU K_\8jjfZ`Xk\[Gi\jj CHICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; As a young woman, Donna Moncivaiz would go to tanning salons looking for that perfect summer glow. Now 51, Moncivaiz suffers from late-stage melanoma and says the cancer has spread to her lymph nodes, gall bladder, liver and brain. The Beach Park mother also allowed her daughter to tan and, at 25, she too was diagnosed with early-stage melanoma. Doctors attribute both womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s melanoma to tanning beds and time spent outside without sunscreen, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Moncivaiz has been among the most vocal supporters of proposed legislation that Gov. Pat Quinn signed Thursday to ban indoor tanning in Illinois for anyone younger than 18. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want any mom to feel the guilt I feel, or go through what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going through,â&#x20AC;? said Moncivaiz, who testified in favor of the bill during the spring legislative session. Quinn signed the bill

along with a measure that prohibits anyone younger than age 18 from smoking electronic cigarettes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am signing these new laws today so that our youth and their families can be spared the consequences of very serious and preventable health problems that are caused by dangerous habits formed at a young age,â&#x20AC;? Quinn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Together these measures will protect the health of Illinois youth and save lives in the longrun.â&#x20AC;? On the tanning issue,

Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision meant he agreed with critics that the health concerns merit government prohibition, rather than merely leaving the choice of tanning to youths and their parents, as industry officials had argued as the legislation was debated by lawmakers. Dr. Judy Knox, a dermatologist from Springfield, has long advocated for a teen tanning ban, saying sometimes parents donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know their kids are using tanning beds. She said ten sessions in a tanning bed doubles the

risk for melanoma. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The younger you are the more time you have then to develop that cancer,â&#x20AC;? Knox said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a huge myth that people think a tan is healthy.â&#x20AC;? The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the World Health Organization say natural and artificial ultraviolet radiation are cancer-causing substances, and in May the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a proposed order for stricter regulations on indoor tanning devices. The American Academy of Dermatology says minors shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use indoor tanning equipment because overexposure to ultraviolet radiation can lead to skin cancer. The new law bans teens from using equipment that emits ultraviolet radiation, including sun lamps and tanning booths. They also cannot use tanning beds that emit certain electromagnetic radiation wavelengths. The bill doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t apply to devices used in private residences, phototherapy devices used by physicians or spray tans.

British stuntman dies in wingsuit mishap The ASSOCIATED PRESS GENEVA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a competitor, but Mark Sutton still got one of the biggest cheers of the 2012 Olympics. Sutton, who was killed during a wingsuit jump in the Alps this week, was the skydiver who parachuted into Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Olympic Stadium during the opening ceremony dressed as James Bond, alongside anoth er stuntman disguised as Queen Elizabeth II. It was the punchline to a filmed sequence in which

Daniel Craigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bond escorted the real queen from Buckingham Palace onto a helicopter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and, for many, the highlight of director Danny Boyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ceremony. Swiss police confirmed that Sutton died Wednesday when he crashed into a rocky ridge near Trient in the southwestern Valais region. They gave his age as 42. Wingsuits â&#x20AC;&#x201C; aerodynamic jumpsuits that make wearers look like winged superheroes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; allow fliers to jump from planes, helicopters and occasionally cliffs and soar

long distances before opening parachutes to land. Boyle on Thursday paid tribute to Sutton, saying he and fellow diver Gary Connery had â&#x20AC;&#x153;made the stadium gasp ... and left indelible memories for people from all walks of life all over the world.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The show was built from so many contributions from so many people, none finer and braver than Mark Sutton,â&#x20AC;? Boyle said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On behalf of everyone in the show we were all honored to have worked with him and to

have known him as a friend and a professional. â&#x20AC;&#x153; London 2012 chief Sebastian Coe said Sutton was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a consummate professional and team playerâ&#x20AC;? who would be widely missed. Online extreme sports broadcaster Epic TV said Sutton was killed during a gathering it had organized involving 20 wingsuit pilots who were filmed as they jumped from helicopters. The firm said Suttonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a tragic loss for the global wingsuit community.â&#x20AC;?

Kish College in talks with support staff

By the numbers

By FELIX SARVER ]jXim\i7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd MALTA – A four-year contract between Kishwaukee College and its unionized support staff expired June 30, but both sides are remaining mum about negotiations for a new pact. On Wednesday morning, Rob Galick, the community college’s vice president of finance and administration, made an agreement with Mary Haub, the president of the Kishwaukee Council of Support Staff, that neither would comment on the negotiations. Negotiations between the college’s board and the union representing its custodians, maintenance, secretaries, clerical and programming staff began in March. Galick said this decision was to ensure negotiations will continue to happen through both parties. He said discussions have been productive thus far. “We don’t agree on everything, but its been an honest and constructive dialogue,” Galick said. Haub also declined to discuss her union or past negotiations. She is a staff member in the college’s library. The 90-member Kishwaukee Council of Support Staff is not the only union at the college. The Kishwaukee College Education Association has about 82 faculty members. Its three-year contract expires in June 2014 and negotiations will begin some time next spring, Galick said. The average salary for union support staffers is $37,844, he said. Under the previous contract, an employee’s base annual salary was set to increase by a minimum of 2 percent each fiscal year provided they had been employed in their current position for at least one year.

In 2011, revenues and expenditures were between $20 million and $21 million. The difference in the budget goes toward the college’s construction projects, said Matthew Crull, director of institutional research. Last year about $350,000 went toward construction efforts. Tuition and fees for students will average $1,344 a semester for the upcoming school year, which is a 13 percent increase from the previous rate, which was frozen between 2011 and 2012, he said. No deadline has been set for approval of the contract, and Galick said he was reluctant to lay out a timetable. The college’s board of trustees, which meets Sept. 10, must approve any agreement at a public meeting. Galick said Kevin Fuss, the college’s associate vice president of institutional effectiveness, and the college’s attorney, Phil Gerner, were part of the negotiating team for Kishwaukee College. Haub would not name members of the union negotiating team. The Malta-based community college had an average enrollment of about 11,000 students in the past five years.

Sears employees’ quick thinking makes difference

Chris Lamb (right) cuts a piece of wood as Dennis Obenchain watches as the two helped construct a bicycle rack Thursday or Pine Acres Rehab & Living Center in DeKalb.

By FELIX SARVER ]jXim\i7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd DeKALB – A tour to help local communities with construction projects made an unplanned stop in DeKalb to help a rehabilitation center build new bike racks. The Craftsman “Make A Difference Tour,” which is stopping at more than 20 locations throughout the nation, almost didn’t make it to Pine Acres Rehab & Living Center in DeKalb. The tour truck typically carries the latest Craftman tools and equipment for display while helping with community service projects at each location. But Sears District Manager Eric Nowaczyk said the truck with the Craftsman tools was rear-ended in Sturgis, S.D. The normally impressive display was stuck in Minnesota for repairs and would not be on hand at Pine Acres. The show had to go on, though. Craftsman tour volunteers, along with local Sears Hometown Store employees, were going to build

the bike rack with whatever tools were on hand. One was a miter saw for cutting the lumber. “We made a commitment and we’re going to do it for these guys,” Nowaczyk said. Previously, Nowaczyk was with the tour at Fairview Park in Rochelle to help build benches. Close to a dozen volunteers were at the back end of the building to put together the bike racks Thursday. The racks were planned to be 6-feet long and 3-feet wide. Brendon Protano, owner of

She folded her Maple Park law practice in May and is serving two years of court supervision. The ethics complaint alleges Bajaj met two men through the website Adult Friend Finder, where she identified herself as Nikita. One paid her $200 after meeting her for sex at a DeKalb hotel in 2005, and then met her for sex about 25 times over the next five years, paying her $100 each time, the complaint alleges. She allegedly met the second man in a store parking lot, where he paid her $25 for performing a sex act in 2007, the complaint alleges. The pair met about a dozen times through January 2011, with

Lindsey Kallenberger, Pine Acres activity director, said the bike racks would definitely benefit the employees, volunteers and visitors at the rehabilitation center. She said this was a project that takes special people to accomplish. “I just think it’s great they are doing this and great they are giving back to the community,” she said.

Drug tests for Chicago public housing challenged Resident: Policy is degrading, unfair By MICHAEL TARM K_\8jjfZ`Xk\[Gi\jj CHICAGO – A policy forcing residents in Chicago’s public housing developments to submit to annual drug tests violates privacy and other constitutional rights, according to a class-action lawsuit filed Thursday that seeks a court order halting the practice, which critics say is rare nationally. The ACLU filed the suit in

U.S. District Court in Chicago on behalf of Joseph Peery, a 58-year-old resident of the Parkside of Old Town development. He doesn’t use drugs, but says having to urinate into a cup once a year to renew his lease is degrading. “He finds Joseph Peery it humiliating and invasive, and it makes him feel stigmatized as a presumptive criminal and drug user,” the lawsuit says. Peery has passed all four tests he has taken, it adds, and submits to them because

ÈN_\k_\ikfhlXc`]p]fi dfik^X^\jlYj`[`\jfi XkXo[\[lZk`fe#pfl [feËk_Xm\kfkXb\X li`e\k\jk]fik_Xk%É Ed Yohnka 8:CL:_`ZX^fjgfb\jdXe he could be evicted otherwise. The development is in an area once known as Cabrini Green, a violence-plagued project that was a national symbol of failed public housing in the 1980s and 1990s. In

a city plan to improve conditions, authorities demolished Cabrini Green, replacing it with smaller units catering to low- and middle-income families. The lawsuit names the Chicago Housing Authority, or CHA, which provides public housing for more than 50,000 low-income Chicago residents. ACLU Chicago spokesman Ed Yohnka says few public housing agencies in the nation require such tests as a condition of qualifying for or renewing a lease. “It is very rare,” Yohnka said. “We are not aware of any other agency anywhere in the

country requiring this.” CHA spokeswoman Wendy Parks released a three-sentence statement in response, saying only that public housing tenants are required to “follow property rules.” Reached later by phone, she declined to comment on why the rules are in place or what the objectives of the policy might be. Residents of some public housing developments in Chicago are not subject to drugs tests, and Yohnka says it is not clear what criteria the agency employees to decide which ones are. Yohnka also challenged

the notion such testing might be a legitimate tool to minimize risks of crime, saying law enforcement operations targeting drug dealers or street gangs was the proper approach. He also argued that singling out lower income residents was not only unconstitutional, but also unfair and of no practical value. “Whether to qualify for mortgage subsidies or a tax deduction, you don’t have to take a urine test for that,” Yohnka said. “And people use drugs across race and demographics, so there’s just no rational basis for this invasive policy.”

Tornado survivors back in class today By SEAN MURPHY K_\8jjfZ`Xk\[Gi\jj MOORE, Okla. – One young girl is so afraid of the wind that she carries headphones to block out the sound. Other kids are traumatized by the memory of their narrow escape from the storm and the friends who died just a few feet away from them. Nearly three months after a twister blasted through Moore and destroyed two elementary schools, students are preparing to go back to class. Although many families are ready to return to a familiar routine, parents and teachers say the town’s children have fears that are still fresh and a lot more healing to do. Both schools – Plaza Towers Elementary and Briarwood Elementary – have been razed to concrete slabs, as have most of the surrounding homes. Students will attend class in temporary buildings starting today. District officials hope the new school year marks a fresh start in the lives of children who survived the May 20 tornado, which killed 24 people and wrecked scores of homes and businesses along a 17-mile path through the heart of this Oklahoma City suburb. “I’m not going to act as though those first couple of weeks [after the storm] weren’t so terribly difficult,

because they were,” said Superintendent Robert Romines, a longtime Moore resident who took the district’s top post over the summer. “But since that day, we have turned a lot of corners. After our last funeral, we turned a corner.” Parents of some of the children who attended Plaza Towers, where seven third-graders were crushed by a collapsing wall, say their kids frighten easily, especially during severe weather, and are often haunted by thoughts of their friends who died. “There was screaming and crying,” recalled 9-yearold Ruby Macias, who was trapped under the same wall. Now Ruby gets scared whenever the weather turns bad and remains troubled by the death of her close friend, Sydney Angle, who was also 9. “She says she dreams about her friend,” said Ruby’s mother, Veronica Macias. “I don’t know what to tell her.” Another Plaza Towers student trapped beneath the wall, 10-year-old Xavier Delgado, said he doesn’t like to think or talk about the day of the tornado, but he’s not afraid to go back to class. “I’m not nervous.

Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15-member panel â&#x20AC;&#x201C; dubbed the Northeastern Illinois Public Transit Task Force â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will be led by Metropolis Strategies President and CEO George Ranney and Illinois Department of Transportation Secretary Ann Schneider. Other members include Robert Guy, a director for the United Transportation Union, and Sylvia Jenkins, president of Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills. The goal of the group, according to Quinn, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;to eliminate waste, fraud and abuse and streamline operations.â&#x20AC;? They are expected to make recommendations to overhaul the agencies and lawmakers are expected to consider them later in the year. The appointment of Fitzgerald, who successfully convicted two Illinois governors during his more than 10 years in the Northern District of Illinois, should add heft to the panelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendations.

World condemnation widened for the bloody crackdown on Morsiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mostly Islamist supporters, including an angry response from President Barack Obama, who canceled joint U.S.-Egyptian military maneuvers. Violence spread Thursday, with government buildings set afire near the pyramids, policemen gunned down and scores of Christian churches attacked. As turmoil engulfed the country, the Interior Ministry authorized the use of deadly force against protesters targeting police and state institutions. The Muslim Brotherhood, trying to regroup after the assault on their encampments and the arrest of many of their leaders, called for a mass rally today in a challenge to the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

At least 638 people were confirmed killed and nearly 4,000 wounded in the violence sparked when riot police backed by armored vehicles, snipers and bulldozers smashed the two sit-ins in Cairo where Morsiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supporters had been camped out for six weeks to demand his

reinstatement. It was the deadliest day by far since the 2011 popular uprising that overthrew autocratic ruler Hosni Mubarak and plunged the country into more than two years of instability. Also on Thursday, The United Nations Security Council called on both the Egyptian government and the Muslim Brotherhood

to exercise â&#x20AC;&#x153;maximum restraintâ&#x20AC;? and end the violence spreading across the country. Council members called for national reconciliation. The Health Ministry said that 288 of those killed were in the largest protest camp in Cairoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nasr City district, while 90 others were slain in a smaller encampment at al-Nahda Square, near Cairo University.

County animal shelter, with 120 cats, running out of room for felines Â&#x203A;J?<CK<IJ

:fek`el\[]ifdgX^\8( Both organizations face challenges in managing all the dogs, cats and smaller animals that come their way. Neither one receives any government funding, relying on donations, income from services they offer and grants to keep the operations running. The DeKalb County Animal Shelter struggles every day to finance the operation,

said Roberta Shoaf, the shelterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director. It spends between $200,000 to $250,000 each year in revenue and is susceptible to economic downturns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whenever the economy is bad, donations decrease along with everything else,â&#x20AC;? Shoaf said. And its capacity is limited. Shoaf said the shelter is running out of room for cats, of which they have 120. They also struggle trying to get older animals adopted. The TAILS Humane Soci-

ety doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go over capacity because they are a limited admission intake facility. Executive director Beth Drake said the policy is meant to prevent the need to euthanize animals to create more space. About 60 percent of the

animals TAILS receives are dogs and 40 percent are cats, she said. The rest are small animals such as hamsters and rabbits. The staff of 31 people ensure living spaces are clean and animals are healthy. Although the organization does face challenges to raise the roughly $1 million in revenue it needs each year, it also faces the challenge of trying to get others to understand the importance of adopting animals rather than breeding them.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The number of animals coming into the shelters exceeds the ones getting adopted,â&#x20AC;? Drake said. The whole county and even neighboring counties are served by the TAILS. Animals that arrive at its facility can come from other people, local animal control departments and rural areas outside the state. Drake said the rural areas of Oklahoma suffer from a pet overpopulation problem. Van Winkle said hundreds

of dogs that come to the TAILS share stories similar to Violetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. He said the organization does a tremendous job of saving animals that are sick. Among the staff who treat the animals is a full-time veterinarian, clinic manager and two assistants. Since Violet has come under the care of Van Winkle and his family, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been doing wonderfully, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beefed up a little bit,â&#x20AC;?

Plan first for S. Fourth St.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Fox family deserves fair recognition

To the Editor: As my wife and I are getting things in order to leave Aug. 28 for what might be our last extended stay in our hometown of Somonauk. We have again timed it with not only our 55th wedding anniversary, but also with our beloved Sandwich Fair. Now about the fair. I have been looking, for old time’s sake, at the book on the history of the fair. I am still miffed by the leaving out of the whole Fox family and their dedication to working in various positions at the fair. To name some of them: Ernest Fox, Raymond Fox, Leo Fox, Bud Fox, John Fox, Laverne Fox, Don Fox, Leroy Fox, Craig Fox, Bob Larson, and there could be more. I don’t think many families did more in the ’50s and ’60s. I know my father-in-law Ernest Fox worked many hours helping Shelby Morris and Herman Carlson, and taking his own farm equipment to the fairgrounds. I have written several letters about this oversight to several people who compiled the fair book and received no response. I

also worked the fair from 1959 to ‘68 after which I moved to Florida, but since then I have come to the fair several times and worked night security. I think if people want to know the history of the fair and the people who organized it and made it work, surely the members of the Fox family, who mostly did manual help, deserve to be mentioned. I am Ernest Fox’s son-in-law, and know for a fact that when Shelby Morris and Herman Carlson needed help, Ernie was almost always available. It was also well-known in the community that the Fox boys weren’t the kind to run the show, but if you needed work done, that’s who you asked. I once heard Shelby say if he needed work done, all he needed was Ernest and Raymond Fox to do it, didn’t need anyone else. What a great tribute. I might add, what a loss when Shelby and his wife lost their lives at the corner of Route 23 and Suydam Road. The fair lost a dedicated man. Bob Larson Lake Placid, Fla.

The first and last time

To the Editor: The song “The Last Time I Saw Paris,” made me think about the last time we do something. We may not know it is the “last” time. No bells and trumpets go off to mark the momentous occasion. We remember the first time we do something because it is the first time. Its uniqueness makes it memorable. Losing the first tooth as a child is often heralded with a lot of attention by one’s parents. Putting it under our pillow and finding a coin the next morning makes it rewarding. I don’t want to think about losing the last one. On my first day of school, I remember crying all the way as my father accompanied me to the schoolhouse door. I do remember the last day of school, though, because I cried then, too, as I would miss the daily contact with my friends. I remember my first kiss on our front porch from someone who was not a member of my family. It ended just before my father opened the front door and sent the young lad scurrying away. I do remember the last kiss from my late husband, but I did not

know at the time it was the last. When my children outgrew the need for diapers and graduated to training pants, I must have washed a diaper for the last time. It was a tremendously carefree thing to switch to training pants. But I don’t remember it. Who can forget the first time driving solo without an adult sitting beside us? Sadly, I remember the last time I drove … because I did it of my own accord before I was asked to do so due to my advanced age. I knew when I smoked my last cigarette, as I had made up my mind to quit. I can even tell you the exact time and date. I remember the first one, too, because I was so dizzy I could hardly walk a straight line. The first snowfall is usually remembered, but the last one in the season is never a guarantee that Mother Nature won’t zap us once again before spring. I remember the first piece I wrote that was published. I won’t know when the last one will be because I have not written it yet. I hope. Mil Misic DeKalb

Honored physician isn’t with the program SPRINGFIELD – Regular readers of this column know there are not a lot of things that Gov. Pat Quinn and I agree on. But Quinn’s selection of Dr. Russell Dohner as grand marshal of the Illinois State Fair Twilight Parade is worthy of praise. Dohner is a physician from Rushville who provides his services at a rate of $5 per office call. He’s a beloved fixture in west-central Illinois. In fact, to hear some talk, he borders on being a living saint. I’ve been hearing Dr. Dohner stories since I was a little kid. He was my Grandpa Chet and Grandma Wanda’s doctor. And he has helped countless other folks in his rural community for almost 60 years. “No one embodies the state fair theme of ‘Where Illinois Comes Together’ better than Dr. Dohner,” Quinn said in a prepared statement. “His example of service and concern for everyday people have brought the people of western Illinois together for almost six decades. We are honored to have him lead the parade that kicks off this year’s fair.” Also in the governor’s news release, it was noted that the announcement of grand marshal “follows Governor Quinn’s recent signing of a law that enacted the largest increase in health insurance coverage in state history, one of the Governor’s 2013 legislative priorities and a key part of President Barack Obama’s Affordable

VIEWS Scott Reeder Care Act.” It’s interesting that Quinn would link Dr. Dohner with his own efforts to expand the state Medicaid system. After all, Dr. Dohner doesn’t accept Medicaid. Or private insurance. Just his $5 fee for a typical office visit. “We don’t do a lot of paperwork – except when we do a physical or something like that,” Dohner told me. “But that’s medical paperwork – not billing paperwork. Our philosophy is pretty simple. We don’t charge very much, so we expect patients to pay when they are seen.” Like many physicians, Dohner has figured out that all the billing paperwork is not just a major inconvenience, but a distraction from the real business at hand – making people well. Instead of having his nurse filling out government forms, he has her helping patients. And yet Quinn is using the good doctor’s legacy of service as political cover for his massive Medicaid expansion and to promote Obamacare. I asked Dohner what he thought of Obamacare, and he said he didn’t know enough about it to comment. But like most folks – on both the left and right – Dohner

wants low-income folks to receive quality medical care. He has just found a way to do it without government involvement. Here is how Dohner’s longtime nurse, Florence Bottorff, explained the decision not to accept Medicaid: “Dr. Dohner just gave it up because it was too much of a hassle. It takes one employee just to handle all of those records. People don’t realize how much paperwork there is to do after a Medicaid patient leaves the office.” Dohner is hardly alone in his contempt for the program that Quinn has worked so hard to expand. In fact, 35 percent of all Illinois physicians don’t take new Medicaid patients, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. Illinois is the eighth worst in the nation in that regard. It just goes to show you, giving someone Medicaid is not the same as providing them with access to health care. Fortunately, there are dedicated physicians such as Dohner who have found a way to help sick people without government interference. After all, more government doesn’t always mean more service. That is a lesson Quinn would do well to learn.

Of the two newest areas the DeKalb City Council has targeted for redevelopment, the South Fourth Street corridor seems the most in need of help. But there should be some plan for what the area is to become before that help comes, or the city will just be throwing money at a problem that it has been trying to fix for years. In addition, there must be a feasible strategy for attracting private developers to build there. The area the city has targeted to be designated as a tax increment financing district includes properties along Fourth between Fairlane Avenue north to Culver Street, as well as a couple of blocks on nearby Lacas Street. It’s a hodgepodge of auto repair shops, vacant buildings, along with a couple of restaurants and convenience retailers. There are some destination spots along For the record the strip, but generally, people go there for a particular DeKalb must have a feapurpose and leave. sible strategy for attracting A report by PGAV Planprivate developers to build ners documented many of in the South Fourth Street the areas in need of repair corridor. in the neighborhood, from public streets, sidewalks and light poles, to private businesses with unscreened dumpsters, the abandoned Protano’s Auto Parts property, where the ground has been contaminated by toxic waste from abandoned vehicles. Clearing the contamination likely would require the city to match any available grant from the Environmental Protection Agency. There’s also a vacant grocery store property in the area that has fallen into disrepair and will likely be costly either to rehab or demolish and start anew. The proposal is for the city to designate the area as a TIF district. Such districts freeze the property tax payments that local governments – school and park districts, the city, and others – receive from property owners in an area for 23 years. As property values in an area increase over that period, the excess funds are diverted into a special account and can be used for improvements. Without some kind of public investment, it seems likely that the area will continue to languish. South Fourth is a gateway to DeKalb – it’s how you enter driving north on Illinois Route 23 – but it’s more of a neighborhood area, not the “heart of the city” like downtown. If improvements are made strictly with public financing, the city won’t see a very good return on its investment. Projections indicate that even if DeKalb invests $13.9 million in the area through the sale of bonds to make improvements, it will only generate $3.7 million in tax increment revenue. The area would connect with a more successful, established TIF district that includes downtown DeKalb, and the possibility exists that funds could be transferred, but the preference should be for South Fourth to be self-sustaining in the long term. Unlike the downtown DeKalb area, which has generated tens of millions in increment revenue with limited private investment, it will be essential for private builders to buy in for the South Fourth Street area to thrive. Which brings us back to the question of what the area should become. What will work there? Would narrowing South Fourth from four lanes to two, and creating a more attractive, pedestrian-friendly streetscape be acceptable? Are there areas where more parking for businesses can be created? Should public parks, plazas or other public spaces be created? To answer these questions, the city should engage not only the businesses and residents within the area, but also those nearby. Survey the hundreds of people who pack Kiwanis Park for youth soccer games on weekends, for example. Tax increment financing is a tool that seems to have been created for areas such as South Fourth, which are likely to languish without help. It’s clear that the area needs to change. But what should it become? If there can be general agreement reached, the plan should proceed. Without a vision, the city will simply be throwing money at a problem.


Don’t cut arts funding The federal government is poised to slash $71 million from the National Endowment for the Arts – something U.S. House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers, a Republican from Kentucky, considers “a lower-priority, or ‘nice-to-have’ ” program. The proposed decrease amounts to about half the endowment’s funding from the previous year and would give it just $75 million to operate on. It’s the lowest funding level for the NEA since 1970, adjusted for inflation, according to Arts Alliance Illinois, a Chicago-based group that advocates for the arts and arts education. Rogers and other lawmakers should not dismiss the vital role the arts play in the nation’s economy, culture, beauty and history, nor should they ignore the trickle-down effect the cuts will have on local economies. Such a drastic cut to the National Endowment for the Arts is shortsighted and fails to recognize the role arts programs play in preserving Main Street America.

The kids are all right, mostly CHICAGO – The trick to evaluating preseason football is to set clear goals, grade players on their complete body of work, never overreact and make sure you check the film before you start handing out grades. So, obviously all you get here are some strong first impressions, and mine from preseason Game 2 are the Bears had a pretty decent night in a 33-28 win over the San Diego Chargers. My first impression came off the Bears’ second possession af-

BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush ter a disastrous start. This Bears team is going to be better on offense, regardless of what coach Marc Trestman does, because for the first time in a long time it has multiple Pro Bowlers on the field. With talent such as Brandon Marshall, Matt Forte, Jermon Bushrod and others, they are

going to make plays. There was more good news for the offense. The experiment of starting rookies Kyle Long and Jordan Mills next to each other at right guard and tackle showed more than enough to merit another start for each in the all-important third preseason game, where starting jobs actually will be won and lost. Here comes the cautionary tale though.

Desire to contribute Wideout Brescacin looking to take on leadership role, improve every day By LUKE SRODULSKI cjif[lcjb`7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd

DeKALB – Upon first glance, Northern Illinois sophomore Juwan Brescacin doesn’t seem like anything out of the ordinary for a Mid-American Conference receiver: big, strong and athletic. But the 6-foot-4 Brescacin is not your typical college football player. His story began in Mississauga, Ontario, where he grew up and learned to play football. Only he didn’t start off as a wideout.

“I played football in Canada,” Brescacin said, “but I played quarterback because every athletic person played quarterback.” After his sophomore year, Brescacin moved to Indiana and began attending Culver Military Academy. There, he began playing receiver, and he broke the school’s career records for receiving yards, receptions and touchdown catches in two seasons. He was also a standout on the basketball court, but the gridiron was where he drew the attention of then-NIU coach

Jerry Kill. Kill took a job at Minnesota near the end of the 2010 season, Brescacin’s senior year, but Kill continued to show interest. Ultimately, Kill decided on another recruit over Brescacin. Fortunately for him, the Huskies’ Dave Doeren continued to show interest, and when he offered Brescacin just before the NIU spring game in 2011, it was an easy decision for Brescacin to commit. NIU coach Rod Carey, who was then the offensive line coach, liked what he saw. “He was just a big, athletic guy that made plays,” Carey said. “That’s really what the most impressive thing was coming off of his recruiting film.”

Schiller seeks more than a cameo NIU alum had 5 tackles in Falcons’ preseason opener

The undrafted free-agent’s late-summer days are heavily regimented, and he spends them working tirelessly knowing nothing is guaranteed.

Schiller went to training camp the camera-savvy Bengals. Listed with the Falcons last season and as a middle linebacker on Atlanta’s

depth chart – he thrived at the position during his collegiate career at Northern Illinois – Schiller moved to weakside linebacker for the preseason opener when starter Sean Witherspoon suffered a left finger injury. Having played his share on the weak side during offseason organized team activities, Schiller simply adapted, recording five tackles while accumulating further confidence leading up to Thursday night’s preseason game at Baltimore.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; not clicking, but Bears win By ANDREW SELIGMAN K_\8jjfZ`Xk\[Gi\jj CHICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This new and supposedly improved offense is producing some awfully familiar results for the Bears. Quarterback Jay Cutler looked shaky again and the defense made up for it, harassing Philip Rivers early on and setting the tone for the Bears in a 33-28 victory over the San Diego Chargers in a preseason game Thursday night.

Next up XkFXbcXe[# 0g%d%8l^%)*# E=CE#8D$./'# (',%0$=D All eyes remain on the quarterback after the Bears made some big changes on offense in the offseason, hiring coach Marc Trestman to replace Lovie Smith and revising their line.

So far, the results are mixed at best. Cutler played a quarter and completed 4-of-5 passes for 38 yards and a touchdown, but the only receiver he targeted was Brandon Marshall. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a good sign for the Bears, considering they want to distribute the ball more evenly this year. Nor was Cutler getting intercepted trying to hit Marshall in double coverage. On a more positive note for the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense, Matt Forte

ran for 74 yards and a touchdown on eight attempts after carrying only once in a loss at Carolina in the preseason opener. His 58-yard run around the left end set up the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first touchdown, a 5-yard strike from Cutler to Marshall. Devin Hester also showed a spark, returning the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening kickoff 45 yards. And reserve Michael Ford ran one back 100 yards in the third quarter, leading to a 3-yard scoring run by Michael Bush.


New offense isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spreading the wealth quite yet By KEVIN FISHBAIN b]`j_YX`e7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd CHICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Receiver Alshon Jeffery and tight end Martellus Bennett looked exceptional during training camp in Bourbonnais, and lucky for them, coach Marc Trestmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense is supposed to spread the ball around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Supposedâ&#x20AC;? being the key word. Quarterback Jay Cutler threw all five of his passes in the direction of receiver Brandon Marshall in Thursday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 33-28 preseason victory over the San Diego Chargers, completing four for 38 yards, including a 5-yard touchdown. Jeffery got looks in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preseason opener, but Marshall was on the sideline in sweats. Running back Matt Forte had one great run, and Marshall looked as good as always on his catches, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to get a good read on this new offense based on the first half. Marshall received 40 percent of Bears passes last season, and he got 100 percent of the looks against San Diego. Bennett doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a catch in two preseason games, and he is supposed to be the main upgrade. The question all offseason has centered around how Trestmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense will look different, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to wait until Oakland to see more of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;spread the wealthâ&#x20AC;? aspect of his scheme. Injury report: Quarterback Matt Blanchard left the game with a left hand injury and defensive tackle Corvey Irvin injured his ankle. Both received X-rays. The Bears already are hurting in terms of depth at defensive tackle, and if Blancahrd misses time, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to sign another quarterback. Defensive end Julius Peppers did not play (coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision). He has had few full practices in the past two weeks. Defensive tackle Henry Melton (concussion), receiver Earl Bennett (concussion), running back Armando


Bears receiver Brandon Marshall holds on to a Jay Cutler pass for a first down in the first half of Thursday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preseason game against the San Diego Chargers at Soldier Field. The Bears won, 33-28. Allen (hamstring), linebacker D.J. Williams (calf), offenive tackle Jonathan Scott (knee) and long snapper Patrick Mannelly (ribs) also were inactive. Creative Frey: In addition to liking what they see from Isaiah Frey in terms of coverage ability as a nickel corner, defensive coordinator Mel Tucker has used him several times on blitzes from the slot through two games. Frey blitzed on Chargers quarterbck Philip Riversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; interception and showed blitz, only to back off earlier on a third-down play when James Anderson got a pass defensed.

Good and bad rookie returns:

Michael Ford had a fantastic 100-yard kickoff return, showing off his patience and a burst of speed and leading to a Michael Bush touchdown run. On the bad side, Josh Lenz fumbled a punt return, giving the Chargers great field position, and they scored on the next play. Special personnel: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always interesting to see which players play on all the special teams units, as it is an important way to make the team. Some of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;fringeâ&#x20AC;? roster players to get plenty of special teams work included Eric Weems, Sherrick McManis and Anthony Walters.

Initial impressions good Â&#x203A;8IBLJ?

:fek`el\[]ifdgX^\9( In spite of the hue and cry in the twitterverse to begin preparing another Long bust for Canton, it still is an experiment with a long way to go. Extracting Matt Forteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 58-yard run, which neither of the rookies had anything to do with, the Bears offense managed 86 yards on 27 plays in the first half, during which Long and Mills ran with the first and second team, a paltry 3.2 yards a snap. That obviously is not all about just the rookie linemen, but who exactly did they dominate? The review of the film will show both Long and Mills acquitted themselves well at times and well enough the rest of the way. Long clearly is learning quickly but still has a long way to go with technique. Against the Chargers, he was big, physical and nasty and showed real promise. I actually was more impressed with Mills, because while he is a great deal more experienced than Long, I had no idea his technique is as solid as it is in so many areas. It will be surprising if both donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start again in Oakland next Friday. While the film will show both also made plenty of mistakes, what could have been a real disaster was in fact a pleasant surprise. The offense unfortunately also gave us one huge con-

cern. The pick quarterback Jay Cutler threw to Donald Butler was inexcusable in any system and under any coach, a throw an NFL quarterback simply canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make. The manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an eight-year veteran and I have no idea what coach Marc Trestman can do about it. Defensively, the goals against San Diego had to be to see how far the rookie linebackers have come, whether the Bears are good enough at end beyond Julius Peppers and where depth at tackle and in the secondary will come from. Jon Bostic had another signature play, starting the second half by separating Chargers receiver Mike Willie from the ball, and several body parts to boot, with a vicious but perfectly clean and timed hit. Exciting stuff. But he also was caught going the wrong way and/or a step too slow in reacting multiple times in the first half. Khaseem Greene failed to take a step forward, and was far less visible than last week. These two will not grade out as well as Long and Mills. Beyond that, Corey Wootton and Shea McClellin both had nice nights. A win there, but none of the backup tackles or DBs distinguished himself. All things considered, it was a pretty good night, but just another small step.

Herrmann’s hit CB Russell: DBs will dominate in 9th lifts Twins By LAMOND POPE


By JON KRAWCZYNSKI K_\8jjfZ`Xk\[Gi\jj MINNEAPOLIS – Chris Herrmann’s pinch-hit single in the bottom of the ninth scored pinch-runner Doug Bernier and lifted the Minnesota Twins to a 4-3 victory over the White Sox on Thursday night. The Twins trailed 3-2 heading into the eighth, but Joe Mauer doubled and scored on a base hit from Justin Morneau to tie it. Herrmann came through against Ramon Troncoso (1-4) in the ninth to complete the comeback. Trevor Plouffe hit a solo homer and Mike Pelfrey gave up three runs and struck out four in 6⅓ innings for the Twins. Paul Konerko had two hits and an RBI, and Andre Rienzo gave up two runs – one earned – on four hits with two strikeouts in six innings for the Sox, who lost their 10th straight on the road. Jared Burton (2-6) pitched the ninth for the win. Plouffe led off the ninth with a single to left and Troncoso walked Chris Colabello. Clete Thomas’s bunt failed when catcher Josh Phegley threw Plouffe out at third, but Herrmann squeezed a base hit just past a diving Konerko at first to win it. Manager Ron Gardenhire said he thought Pelfrey could be running out of gas as his innings total has climbed over 100 in his first season back from Tommy John surgery, and he got off to a sluggish start that appeared to support that theory. Pelfrey gave up RBI singles to Adam Dunn and Konerko to fall behind 2-0 in the first. But Pelfrey was able to grind into the seventh and keep the Twins in the game, working much quicker on the mound this time around after being prodded by

Plouffe got the Twins on the board in the fifth with a home run into the bullpen in center field and Josh Willingham’s single scored Brian Dozier to cut the lead to 3-2 in the sixth. With Sox manager Robin Ventura trying to groom Nate Jones as the team’s setup man of the future, sent the righthander out there in the eighth to face lefties Morneau and Mauer rather than going to lefthander Donnie Veal. Mauer, who had five hits in a loss to the Indians on Wednesday, ripped double to center field and just beat a strong throw home from right fielder Avisail Garcia to tie the game, 3-3. Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham left the game in the fourth inning with a strained right quadriceps. Beckham, who leads the team with a .310 average, went 1 for 2 with a single and a run scored before being pulled for what the team called precautionary reasons.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – KeiVarae Russell is in line to be one of the starting cornerbacks for Notre Dame. But that hasn’t changed the way the sophomore has approached fall camp. “I’m still fighting each and every day to keep my spot. Tomorrow, I could be a backup,” Russell said this week. Russell and Bennett Jackson were Notre Dame’s starting cornerbacks for all 13 games last year. Russell had 58 tackles and two interceptions, helping the Irish overcome the loss of Lo Wood to a preseason Achilles injury. Wood is back. But Russell, along with Bennett, remain as starters.

He came to Notre Dame and made an immediate impact defensively. Russell said the year’s worth of experience has made the secondary a more confident group as a whole.

Daily Chronicle /


San Diegans focus on Te’o for football, not his past San Diegans have dissected a surplus of Manti Te’o topics over the past 3½ months. They’ve discussed his perceived leadership skills, his relative lack of physicality, his instincts on the field, his smile, his Pacific Island heritage, his mass-media appeal and even the nuances involved in properly pronouncing his surname. One thing they have not spent much time fretting about is Lennay Kekua. “I don’t know that it has been talked about that much,” San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said. “We didn’t care. He’s been great in the locker room, great on the field. So we don’t care about all that. It’s been the story that was a nonstory.” It’s as if Kekua never existed. So what if the whole country had talked out the girlfriend hoax by the time the Chargers traded up seven spots to take Te’o with the 38th overall pick in the draft? San Diego fans are that desperate to love a winning team again. 8Gg_fkf Players are too focused on a San Diego Chargers linebacker Manti Te’o walks around the field be- culture change within the franfore Thursday’s preseason game against the Bears at Soldier Field. chise to get worked up about

the new kid’s social life. The local media is relatively staid. Plus, the renowned rookie handled himself with so much humility. Whether it was one of those factors or a combination, there’s no denying San Diego has showered Te’o with unconditional love. The former Notre Dame linebacker was in Chicago for an exhibition game Thursday night against the Bears, although a sprained foot suffered during his nine-snap NFL debut a week ago limited him to trolling the sideline in a protective boot. “Anytime I don’t get to play, I’m very disappointed, especially playing in Chicago,” Te’o said. “I know a lot of people there, and that’s something I was definitely looking forward to.” There presumably will be more opportunities to see him. Te’o has worked with the Chargers’ first team since the first practice. There never was a question that he would start. “I see what’s going to be a heck of a football player,” center Nick Hardwick said this summer. “He knows where the

ball is going. He’s really quick to react on it.” The fact is, rare has been the Chargers rookie who looked as NFL-ready as Te’o did in those initial workouts. And right into training camp and the preseason, he mostly has continued to impress. During camp, the local newspaper has run a brief “Te’o Watch” in the paper every day. Even if it’s just 20 words, San Diego gets an update on how he looked on the field or drinking water or joking with teammates. Anything Te’o is newsworthy. The Chargers’ media-relations staff was determined in its efforts to make sure everyone knew right away that Te’o (Tay-oh) did not rhyme with Seau (Say-ow). And San Diego was briefly abuzz last week when the team revealed Te’o was actually pronounced (Tehoh), a semantic that has more to do with how the differences in how some syllables are enunciated between cultures. By any name, Te’o appears to have landed in just about the most perfect spot he could have after enduring a national

embarrassment in January involving an apparent hoax that centered on his supposedly dying girlfriend named Lennay Kekua. Still, questions remain, somewhat troubling remnants from the end of his college career, when Notre Dame was throttled by Alabama, 42-14, in the BCS title game. Te’o’s role in the Chargers’ exhibition opener was likely indicative of how he will be used during the regular season. He played every snap except the three third-down plays in which the Chargers used six defensive backs. How Te’o played must evolve. He looked less-than-aggressive on a couple of snaps, having the block taken to him and being eliminated from plays. The sample was brief, and the news about his foot diminished what might have been a more widespread critique of his debut. But San Diego will keep watching.

Carey raves about Brescacin’s improvements ›9I<J:8:@E

:fek`el\[]ifdgX^\9( Brescacin was given a redshirt as a freshman in 2011, and last year he was caught in the shadows of more-experienced receivers Martel Moore and Perez Ashford. Still, he racked up 223 yards on the season with an average of 20.3 a catch. Moore and Ashford are gone now, and a lot of expectations are falling on Brescacin to make up for some of the lost production. Carey raved about the improvements Brescacin’s made over his two years in the program. “He’s gotten a lot better at his route running, a lot better at his ball skills, his attention to detail, the way he pushes, and I think he’s gotten faster,” Carey said. “The ceiling’s as high as he wants to make it.” Brescacin had a good spring, and with his size and speed, he could be a deep threat. Alongside Tommylee Lewis, Da’Ron Brown and

Jamison Wells, Brescacin hopes to help make up for the last season’s personnel losses. Brescacin isn’t going into the season focusing on his statistics – he just wants to improve. “I’d like to progress every year and just continue to be better,” he said. “I’m looking to get a leadership role and keep the NIU legacy going.”


s #AREY ENDED 4HURSDAYS practice by saying he was happy with the team’s work, but he specifically lauded the defense. “I love the way (cornerback) Sean Evans is pushing through out there,” Carey said. “I love the way our linebackers are playing. I think that’s a really good thing to get those young guys in there; Cody Hazelett, Bobby Jones, Jamaal Payton, I think they’re playing pretty well. And the way the D-line is pushing through. I was really impressed with the defense today.”

s # O R N E R B A C K - A R L O N Moore has been getting a lot of reps at safety during practice, but defensive coordinator Jay Niemann said it’s only precautionary. “He’s practicing a little bit more at corner than he is at safety,” he said, “but we’re dual-training him so that if something happens and he has to play both spots, he’ll be able.” s 3AFETY *IMMIE 7ARD HAS been wearing a cast on his hand this week, but the injury is considered is minor. Carey didn’t have a specific diagnosis, but said Ward should be wearing the case for “a couple weeks.” s .)5S NEXT SCRIMMAGE takes place Saturday, and Carey’s focus is wide. “It’s kind of the last big scrimmage day before we get into game week and everything,” he said. “You’ve got to start to put it together now. It’s the time of the year where the special teams, the substitutions, all the penalties, all the little things have to be put together.”

Schiller: Biggest key is positive attitude ›J:?@CC<I

:fek`el\[]ifdgX^\9( “I think the biggest thing that the team wants is just for you to be able to move, and speed and quickness to the ball,” Schiller said. “As long as you have that and you have a decent weight on you, they really could (not) care less how much you weigh.” Schiller extended his brand of southern hospitality during his family’s recent visit to Georgia. He hosted his parents, Pat and Cathy, while pampering older sister Stephanie, who is seven-months pregnant. The trip marked his brother-inlaw’s first time in Atlanta. The Schillers stayed at their son’s gated apartment complex and mixed trips to

the pool with visits to training camp in Flowery Branch, Ga., as well as the preseason opener. “He had a good first game, a good amount of playing time and he felt he did well considering that they just told him two days before the game he’d be moving to outside after Pat Schiller doing all that work at middle,” Cathy Schiller said. Beyond Witherspoon, Akeem Dent and Stephen Nicholas, the Falcons’ linebacking corps lacks heavy NFL experience. Schiller is one of five hopefuls who have not appeared in a regular-season game.

Still, Schiller knows he can take nothing for granted. Not his home. Not the pool, and certainly not the as-seen-onTV No. 50 jersey. So he isn’t. “The biggest thing is keeping a positive attitude. You can only control what you can control,” Schiller said. “It’s a numbers game, so at the end of the day, you’ve just got to go out there and give it your best and try to put out the best film as possible, because not only are you being evaluated by the Atlanta Falcons, but you’re being evaluated by all other 31 teams, and they all want your film, too. “Hopefully, at the end of the day, I’m with the Falcons, but if they choose to go another way, I believe that if I put good film out there, I’ll be somewhere, and they’ll see it.”

More than 100 youths and adults from local churches traveled to Florida to help out at Give Kids The World resort, a place for terminally ill children and their families to vacation and have fun.

THE WORLD Mission team travels to help ill children smile By FELIX SARVER ]jXim\i7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd


ore than 100 local youths and adults traveled to Florida to give terminally ill children and their families the best vacation they could get. In late July, Joe Munro, director for Sycamore United Methodist Church’s youth ministries, took about 100 youths and 20 adults from several local churches on a fourday trip to volunteer their time and efforts at the Give Kids the World resort in Kissimmee. The nonprofit organization that runs the resort is committed to “fufilling the wishes of all children with life-threatening illnesses,” according to its website. Munro said the resort is all run by volunteers and holds a variety of amusements such as miniature golf, pool tables and arcade games. The effort to put a smile on the faces of children who were ill was not a dour one for Munro and the rest of the volunteers. “It’s just the opposite,” he said. “...they’re blessed to be there.” David Emmert, an 18-year-old Sycamore High School graduate, said the trip was definitely rewarding. He had fun working there and getting to know the families visiting the resort. “It didn’t feel like work at all,” he said.


Life Missions volunteers Rebecca Johnson (left) and Paige Phelps (right) work in the La Ti Da Spa at Give Kids The World resort in Kissimmee, Fla. He noticed that while the children were terminally ill in some cases, they seemed like normal children who were happy and energetic. Emmert, who is a lifelong member of Sycamore United Methodist Church, said the volunteers were broken up into work groups to do service projects around the resort. They cleaned and operated different venues, which was called “angel” work. Emmert said he’s taken mission trips before with Munro’s Life Missions team but nothing like his trip to Florida. Previous trips involved

helping out service work organizations or helping with summer camps. Even though the Life Missions team trips are reserved for high school students, Munro will allow graduates to participate. Every trip for Emmert has been an emotionally and spiritually rewarding experience. He said this year was his fifth as part of the team and he intended to take on another mission this year. “I really wanted to do it because it’d be such a different experience,” Emmert said.

Hinckley church hosts Germanfest fundraiser The Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club of Immanuel Lutheran Church of Hinckley will host its first Germanfest fundraiser Aug. 24. The event will run from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., rain or shine, in Pioneer

Park in Hinckley. Admission is free, but donations are welcome, and those who attend are asked to bring a nonperishable food item for the Hinckley Area Food Pantry. The event will feature live Ger-

man music by Die Perlen, an antique tractor display, craft vendors, kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; games and a menu of bratwurst, sauerkraut, German potato salad, roast pork, baked beans, apple strudel, pretzels, hot dogs, chips, pop, water,

wine and three kinds of beer. The Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club typically has one fundraiser a year, a roast beef dinner. It keeps enough seed money for the next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundraiser and gives away the rest. Most of the funds

are used for capital projects at the church, but the club has also funded youth group events, scholarships, a puppet ministry, livestock for needy families and Bibles and other items for foreign missionaries.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church of St. John (Missouri Synod) recently held its annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Apple Treeâ&#x20AC;? project for Safe Passage. Paper apples with a list of childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ages, clothing and shoe sizes hung from a tree. Members of St. John â&#x20AC;&#x153;pickedâ&#x20AC;? an apple and purchased a full set of clothing and shoes for that child. Member wrapped the presents and brought them to the church. The presents were taken to Safe Passage in time for the start of school. This year, 45 children were given presents. Safe Passage was the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mission of the Monthâ&#x20AC;? at St. John. The entire project was planned and carried out by the Outreach to the Community Committee.

Worker dreams of trading cubicle for classroom Dear Abby: I am 39 and have been at my job for 15 years. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy it and havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t since day one. The work is stressful and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring me one single ounce of gratification. I have always wanted to be an elementary school teacher, but now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid that ship has sailed. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m currently back in college for business (my job helps to pay my tuition) and feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not being fair to myself. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like finance, and I was never good at math. I get paid well and am wellinvested in my retirement plan, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m miserable every minute I must sit in my little cubicle. I consider it my jail cell. I need advice on where to take my career because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not getting any younger. Or is it too late? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Over the Hill in

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips New Jersey

Dear O.T.H.: You are not incarcerated, and you are only as trapped as you choose to make yourself. Most colleges have career counseling services, and you should avail yourself of them. If teaching children is your heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire, you will have to take the time to prepare for it, know ahead of time what opportunities are available and what the compensation is. Make it your business to find out before making any drastic changes. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be glad you did. Dear Abby: I fervently want to help my daughter and

her father (my ex) fix their relationship. They are both a lot alike â&#x20AC;&#x201C; bullheaded and stubborn. They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see how much they hurt each other. My daughter feels he has chosen his â&#x20AC;&#x153;newâ&#x20AC;? family (wife and stepchildren) over her because she isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t invited to family game nights, dinners out, etc. He feels she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appreciate what he does for her. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expecting a baby (our first grandchild) in December, and I think they should try to mend fences BEFORETHEBIRTHOCCURS7E lost our son (her brother) three years ago, and I know this figures into the family dynamic as well. I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see them hurt each other anymore. Can you help me fix this? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Anxious in Colorado

Dear Anxious: I wish you had clarified what your ex â&#x20AC;&#x153;doesâ&#x20AC;? do for his daughter, because from your description it appears he has done the minimum and little else. Having been excluded from â&#x20AC;&#x153;family game nights and dinners out,â&#x20AC;? itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural that she would feel her father made a new family and left her in the dust. 7HILE)ADMIREYOURIMpulse to be the peacemaker, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you can fix this. Family counseling might be able to mend the rift, but only if all parties are willing. Dear Abby: My wife died on my birthday a few years back. It was the most traumatic thing that has ever happened to me, and my birthday has been depressing since. %VERYYEAR PEOPLECONtinue to send cards and gifts,

wishing me a happy birthday. All I want to do on that miserable day is get through it.

How can I convey that my birthday is not a happy occasion anymore? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Party Pooper in New Mexico Dear Party Pooper: I am sorry for your loss. A way to ensure your message gets across would be to write or call these well-meaning individuals, thank them for their good wishes and tell them exactly what you have written to me. I think you expressed it very well.

Most people exposed to HPV lack symptoms Dear Dr. K: A famous actor recently said he got throat cancer from oral sex. Could this be true? Dear Reader: I assume youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re referring to actor Michael Douglas, who recently divulged that his throat cancer could have been brought on by oral sex. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right. Oral sex is a common way to become infected with the human papilloma virus (HPV), and HPV is a leading cause of mouth and throat cancers. There are about 200 different strains of HPV. Some strains cause warts; other strains cause cancer of the cervix, anus, penis and throat (including the base of the tongue and tonsils). Sexual contact, including oral sex and deep kissing, can transmit HPV from one person to

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff another. Many men who have sex with other men are infected with HPV. Fortunately, most people sexually exposed to HPV never develop symptoms or health problems. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true even of the strains of HPV known to cause cancer. Most HPV infections go away by themselves. But in some people, the infection can persist and cause long-term problems, including cancer. There are ways to prevent HPV-related oral cancer, depending on your age. Preteens, teens and young adults of both sexes can get vaccinat-

ed against HPV. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that both young women and young men be vaccinated with the HPV vaccine. The two available HPV vaccines provide excellent protection against sexually transmitted HPV. Avoiding oral sex will also protect against oral cancer, although not all cases of oral cancer are caused by this virus. These two vaccines were approved in 2006 and 2009. They have been available just a few years, and only about a third of the kids and young adults for whom the vaccines are recommended have received the vaccine. Nevertheless, a recent study by the CDC found that the number of young people infected with HPV has dropped consider-

ably. Prior studies have shown that the vaccines given to girls and young women also reduce the risk of cancer of the cervix later in life. Vaccination wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help people beyond their mid-20s or the millions of people already infected with HPV. Using condoms can prevent the spread of the virus during penile-vaginal, penile-anal or penile-oral sex. Using a dental dam (a thin piece of latex) can help prevent the spread of the virus during oral-vaginal sex. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been infected with the virus, diagnosing an HPV-related oral cancer as early as possible greatly improves the chance of cure. See your doctor if you have any of these symptoms for more than two to three weeks: s!SOREINYOURMOUTHOR

The discovery that HPV was the major cause of cancer of the cervix led to diagnostic tests for the virus, as well as to the HPV vaccines. These discoveries and inventions have been honored with the Nobel Prize and have saved hundreds of thousands of lives. It was governmentsupported research that made the discoveries possible.

Only sure way to avoid pregnancy is abstinence Dr. Wallace: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 16 and plan to get sexually intimate with my 17-year-old boyfriend. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not unhappy to lose my virginity, but I have a great fear of becoming pregnant. I even hate to think about it. Kyle said I must get on the pill because he refuses to use a condom. I know I need a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prescription to get birth control pills and I have arranged to have that done.

urge you to reconsider your decision to become sexually intimate with him. To answer your question, medical experts consider oral contraceptives (â&#x20AC;&#x153;the pillâ&#x20AC;?) to be 98 percent effective. The 2 percent failure rate is a significant number. The pill combined with the use of a condom ups the â&#x20AC;&#x153;safeâ&#x20AC;? percentage to 99 percent. The only sure way to avoid pregnancy, of course, is abstinence.

I guess you could say that we are fortunate because mixing drugs and alcohol can lead to major problems. In our discussion, we were debating whether there were more users of drugs or alcohol in our society. He thought there were more drug users, and I disagreed. Both of us are employed, so we can afford to support our habits. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nameless, North Aurora, Ill.

Counting winners preferable Casey Stengel, elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in  SAID h7ITHOUTLOSERS where would the winners be?â&#x20AC;? In bridge, of course: A winner for one pair is a loser for the opponents. And when you are the declarer, you are advised to count your losers before playing from the board at trick one. After doing that, if you can also count your winners in a reasonable length of time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; say, five minutes! â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you should do so. I estimate that on about 20 percent of deals, counting winners will make the best line of play apparent. )NTHISEXAMPLE 7ESTLEADS the spade jack against four hearts. How should South play? South has four potential losers: one in each suit. And if that is as far as declarer went, he would probably win the first trick in his hand, cash the club ace and play a CLUBTODUMMYSQUEEN7HEN ITLOSTTO%ASTSKINGANDA spade came back, South would win on the board and try the diamond finesse (a better bet than the heart finesse, which WOULDNEED%ASTTOHAVE exactly king-doubleton). But when that finesse lost also, declarer would go down one and complain about bad luck. Now count winners. South has 10: two spades, five hearts, two diamonds and one club. All he needs to do is win with his spade king, cash the diamond ace, and play the diaMONDQUEEN7ESTWINSAND leads another spade, but declarer takes that on the board and discards his remaining spade on the diamond jack. Then he plays on trumps, home and dry. Count losers and winners; at least one will help.

Cadillac CTS-V Wagon is rare and getting rarer By ANN M. JOB =fiK_\8jjfZ`Xk\[Gi\jj The 2013 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon – the only V-8-powered station wagon factory built in the United States – is a rare blend of awesome acceleration, luxury accoutrements, sporty handling and station-wagon functionality. It’s like having the cargo room of a compact sport utility vehicle at the back of a sporty luxury car – except the luxury car also has a great exhaust note and a supercharged V-8 that generates 556 horsepower. This combination isn’t the only thing that makes the CTS-V Wagon rare. Only about 1,200 have been sold since the wagon debuted for the 2011 model year. And with the introduction of the next-generation CTS later this year, Cadillac will stop building the wagon version of its mid-size CTS. At that point, U.S. car buyers who want a V-8-powered station wagon – and admittedly, there aren’t many – will have only the Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon to meet their needs. To be sure, the CTS-V Wagon can be costly to own. Because of its gasoline mileage – averaging just 14 miles per gallon in combined city/highway travel – the CTS-V Wagon incurs a federal gas guzzler tax of $1,300 or $2,600 at the time of the car’s purchase. The tax differs, based on manual or automatic transmission. The federal government’s fuel economy ratings of only 12 mpg in city driving and 18 mpg on the highway for the 2013 CTS-V Wagon make it the worst gas guzzler among station wagons sold here. Plus, pricier premium gasoline, rather than regular, is required for the 18-gallon


This photo shows a 2013 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon. tank for the 6.2-liter V-8. Then there’s the manufacturer’s suggested retail price, including destination charge: $65,410 for the base, 2013 CTS-V Wagon with manual transmission. The lowest starting retail price for a 2013 CTS-V Wagon with a sixspeed automatic is $66,710. The prices compare to the $40,100 MSRP, including destination charge, of the base, 2013 CTS Wagon with no “V’’ and with 270-horsepower, direct-injection V-6 mated to an automatic transmission. A mid-level, 2013 CTS Wagon with 318-horsepower V-6 starts at $45,085. The starting retail price for a 2014 Mercedes E63 AMG Wagon with 577-horsepower, twin-turbo V-8 is more than $92,000. The CTS-V Wagon is offered only in rear-wheel drive, not with all-wheel drive. But it comes with standard features that are often extras on other family- and cargo-hauling vehicles. For example, the power rear liftgate is standard as are 19-inch wheels, Bose surround sound, rear park assist, rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, navigation system and leather-trimmed seats with sueded fabric inserts. A screen that displays, among other things, the navigation system map rises from

the top of the center of the dashboard when in use and recedes out of sight into the dashboard when not in use. The 16-foot-long car appeared to be average size for a sedan. In fact, the wagon had just 0.7 inch more bumperto-bumper length than the mid-size CTS sedan. The wagon back end was integrated smartly into the design. The test, all-black CTS-V Wagon looked both sleek and sinister; there was no ignoring the dealer-installed black chrome grille and its large air intake that feeds the big, supercharged V-8. Nor could anyone fail to hear the deep, throaty V-8. One press on the accelerator pedal and the driver and passengers were pushed forcefully back into their seats. Power kept coming – strong and steady – and it made no difference if this wagon was on a flat straightaway or heading uphill. Everyone felt exhilarated – and some were a little wary – of all the power available and how quickly the peak torque of 551 foot-pounds comes to bear at 3,800 rpm. It certainly was challenging to stay within speed limits. The CTS-V Wagon moved purposefully and with tight body control on curves and in back-and-forth slalom maneu-

vers. During an emergency change of lanes to avoid an obstacle, the CTS-V Wagon moved confidently like a slot car from one lane to the other and back again. The CTS-V Wagon has Cadillac’s Magnetic Ride Control technology that helps manage button-down handling without a punishing ride. Braking was impressive, too. The test car had optional yellow-colored Brembo brake calipers that were visible at the wheels. These brakes were sizable – 15 inches in front and nearly 15 inches in

the back – and provided quick slowdowns and stops. Best of all, the brake pedal had good, linear progression and did not feel overly grabby. Some road noise from the 19-inch, performance tires came into the interior. But sounds from nearby vehicles were muted, and wind noise was never noticed. With a car-like height of 4.8 feet, the CTS-V Wagon doesn’t afford views above traffic. Front seats, in particular, can be easily adjustable to make them comfortable for 5-foot-4 riders all the way up
