ELBURN

‘Great’ turnout at annual festival Elburn Lions Club’s fundraising event thrives with rain-free weather By AL LAGATTOLLA alagattolla@shawmedia.com ELBURN – Its “Idol” champion crowned, volleyball players muddied and root beer float customers satisfied, the Elburn Lions Club reported that “overall turnout was great” for its signature event – Elburn Days – which was Friday through Sunday in the area near Lions Park. The festival, the club’s largest fundraiser of the year, thrived with rain-free weather. Dave Broz, the club’s president, said new amenities, such as bleacher seating at the tractor pull and mud volleyball venue, were received well. Broz said the root beer float stand manned by the club’s junior members – the Leo Club – “had a very successful weekend.” Geneva’s San Sandberg won the Elburn Idol teen competition. Sandberg, who said she has been singing since she was 3 years old, said it was her first time at Elburn Idol, but she had spent the last few months competing at singing competitions. She finished among the top 10 in a talent competition in Arlington Heights,

and she won Fox Valley Repertory’s talent contest. The junior Elburn Idol competition was won by Maggie Madziarczyk, a sixth-grader at Kaneland Harter Middle School. Katie Landahl, who did an a cappella version of the song “Cups” while playing the cups, finished second, Eva Ottoson finished third. Madziarczyk said it was the first time she had won a singing competition. She is a Sugar Grove resident. Her mother, Jennifer, said Maggie has been involved in 19 theater productions, including “Scrooge, the Musical” at the Steel Beam Theatre and “It’s a Wonderful Life” at Fox

Valley Repertory. Elsewhere at the fair, Kaneland High School cheerleaders were sitting in a dunk tank, raising funds for the group as customers paid for the opportunity to hit a target and drop the girls into a tank of water. Two girls sat at a time. Sinclair Cress, a freshman, was shivering under a towel after a half-hour session in which she said she was dunked as many as 20 times. It was Cress’ first time, but another team member, junior Alexis Lund knew it was a good thing to sit in the tank during the day. “At night, there is a breeze,” Lund said.

Lund said it’s a popular fundraiser and the girls stay busy climbing back from the tank after someone hits a target. And even if they don’t, she said, they’re sometimes invited to press the target to dunk the cheerleader. That happened after Lund’s shift, when Elburn brothers Austin and James Hall, ages 7 and 9, respectively, weren’t able to sink the girls despite hitting the targets.

Restoring the boardwalk Volunteers play key role in renovation project in Batavia By ERIC SCHELKOPF

On the Web

eschelkopf@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – On a recent Saturday, Batavia Park District employee Derek Duplack was helping fellow park district employee Justin Klopp remove planks from the well-used boardwalk at the Batavia Riverwalk. Duplack and others are helping give the boardwalk a facelift this summer. “It’s nice to get it in top shape for everybody coming out here,” said Duplack, 23. “I remember when I was a little kid, and they were laying the bricks for the project.” The boardwalk was built by volunteers in the 1990s as part of the Batavia Riverwalk, and needs to be replaced. Different groups have been lending a hand throughout the summer, and on this particular Saturday, employees from the Batavia Park District were volunteering their time. On the other side of the boardwalk, Batavia Park District Recreation Supervisor Kristin Bykowski helped to put new planks in place. She is a frequent user of the Batavia Riverwalk. “Me and my dog walk on the Riverwalk almost every day,” Bykowski said. “It’s been fun working on this with everyone. When we come down here in the future, we can say that we helped with it.” The Batavia Parks Foundation is overseeing the boardwalk renovation project. A public campaign to raise $25,000 to $40,000 toward the $175,000 project has raised more than $18,000 to date. The Parks Foundation recently received a $50,000 Kane County riverboat grant for the boardwalk renovation. The goal is to finish the project by the end of October, Batavia Parks Foundation President Steve McKenna

said. The group continues to seek volunteers to help with the project. And volunteers do not need to have any special skills to help. “They just need a little enthusiasm and a willingness to do whatever is asked,” McKenna said. McKenna and his wife, Britta, were involved in the original construction of the Batavia Riverwalk and served as founding board members of the Friends of the Riverwalk. Britta McKenna also helped spearhead a recent effort to add a permanent band shell to the Peg Bond Center on the Batavia Riverwalk. Dennis Kintop, who is serving as the project construction manager for the boardwalk renovation project, also was involved in the original construction of the Batavia Riverwalk. “I created a lot of lasting relationships when I worked on that project,” Kintop said. “It’s nice to see people out here again helping. We love the Riverwalk and the city. We care about the city.” That sense of volunteerism doesn’t surprise Batavia Depot Museum Director

Jeff Krage for Shaw Media

Volunteers continue working on a renovation project on the Batavia Riverwalk on Aug. 10. Carla Hill, who also helped to build the Batavia Riverwalk. “I moved here in 1965, and the sense of volunteerism hasn’t changed at all,” Hill said. “How many communi-

ties can say that? Batavia is amazing when it comes to volunteerism.” Steve McKenna just hopes that sense of volunteer ism continues far into the

future. “Hopefully, the next generation will stand up when the boardwalk needs to be repaired again,” McKenna said.

14TH DISTRICT

Anderson to make second bid for seat By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – In announcing Sunday that he will once again run for the 14th Congressional District seat held by U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, Gurnee Democrat Dennis Anderson said Congress remains broken. “As was the case two years ago, we have a Congress that doesn’t work,” Anderson said during his remarks at the Dennis Filling Station Anderson Pub and Grill in downtown St. Charles. “The House, in particular, is broken. Our opponents are people who, if faced with only two choices in reducing the deficit, either to ask a little more of those who have much or to take from those who have little, they will choose the latter.” Hultgren has not formally announced whether he will seek a third term. Anderson made his announcement that he will seek the Democratic nomination in 2014 in conjunction with a fundraising picnic by the Kane County Democrats organization. The 14th district is comprised of seven suburban counties, including Kane, DuPage, DeKalb, Will, McHenry, Lake and Kendall. Anderson lost to Hultgren last November by 53,252 votes. Hultgren was first elected to Congress in 2011, and had previously been an Illinois senator and representative. Anderson, who had not previously sought public office before his run in 2012, said Congress needs to do more to improve the economy. Anderson said he supports President Barack Obama’s jobs plan, which includes much needed infrastructure improvements. “It will meet immediate needs and will create jobs,” Anderson said.

Speed limit increase gets green light By NICOLE WESKERNA nweskerna@shawmedia.com Come Jan. 1, motorists on Illinois’ rural interstates and tollways will legally be able to drive 70 mph instead of 65 mph. Gov. Pat Quinn signed the legislation Monday, and state Sen. Jim Oberweis, R-Sugar Grove, said the legislation helps bring Illinois into the 21st century. Illinois now joins 36 other states that have speed limits of 70 mph or higher, according to a news release issued by Quinn. “I don’t want to see laws on the books that are widely ignored by most people,” Oberweis said. “If it’s a bad law, it should be changed. I think it was a bad law.” Kane County is among those that would be allowed to opt out of the new rule. The

law also comes with new provisions that lower the threshold for what’s considered excessive speeding from 31 mph to 26 mph. Oberweis, who was one of the bill’s sponsors, said from a safety standpoint, traffic that’s moving at a similar speed is safer Jim Oberweis than one car traveling significantly slower or faster than the rest of the roadway traffic. “If you have all the traffic moving at 70 to 75 miles per hour, going 65 miles per hour is creating more of a traffic hazard,” he said. He said it also makes sense to allow motorists to travel the same speed from state to state, which may in turn be a posi-

tive for Illinois business owners. But the biggest benefit, he said, is reducing the amount of drivers who widely ignore the posted speed limit. “I think this is a good example of true bipartisan legislation where we can actually get something done and work with people on the other side,” he said. Last week, Quinn also signed legislation barring motorists from using hand-held cell phones while driving on Illinois roads, according to a news release from the state. The law, which goes into effect Jan. 1, still allows drivers to use hands-free devices, such as a headset or voice command. Another new law signed by Quinn last week taking effect Jan. 1 increases the penalties for those who use an electronic device while driving and

cause an accident. Accidents that cause great bodily harm can result in up to one year of jail for the offender, and a fatal accident can result in a prison sentence of one to three years. Those offenses are currently punished as traffic violations, states the news release. Also last week, Quinn signed legislation barring anyone younger than 18 from using tanning beds and smoking electronic cigarettes, according to another news release from the state. Both laws take effect Jan. 1. Studies show that people who use tanning beds at a young age increase their risk of developing melanoma by 75 percent, the release states. And while electronic cigarettes don’t contain tobacco, they do contain nicotine, which is an addictive substance.

Air Pollution Action Day alert in effect today for region KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE editorial@kcchronicle.com GENEVA – An Air Pollution Action Day Alert has been issued for the Chicago area today, the first Action Day Alert issued this year, Kane County Health Department officials said. Illinois Partners for Clean Air and the Illinois Environ-

mental Protection Agency issued the alert as air pollution levels are expected to reach the “orange” or – “unhealthy for sensitive groups” – category on the national Air Quality Index. Air quality monitoring and modeling indicates ozone or fine particulate matter levels will be elevated, posing a potential health hazard to sensitive populations, especially individ-

uals with respiratory disorders – including asthma – as well as active children and older adults, according to the alert. Sensitive individuals should take special precautions and follow their doctors’ advice. Businesses and residents in the region are asked to take actions to reduce contributions to air pollution, such as take public transportation, walk or

bike and – if driving – avoid idling, consolidate errands and run them after 7 p.m. when sunlight is not as strong. Area residents and businesses also are asked to reduce their energy demands by setting thermostats up at least 2 degrees, turning off or unplugging electronics not in use and setting the water heater thermostat to 120 degrees or lower.

By NICOLE WESKERNA nweskerna@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – St. Charles School District 303 board members Monday got a preview of the district’s adequate yearly progress reports, and many said they weren’t surprised to see that so few schools passed. The results were presented before the Teaching and Learning Committee. Under the national No Child Left Behind Act, every child is expected to be proficient in reading and math by

2014. For 2012-13, the benchmark was set at 92.5 percent. Only two schools – Ferson Creek and Fox Ridge – met AYP, according to preliminary 2013 results. Anderson and North High School met AYP in reading, but not math, while Munhall and Haines Middle School met AYP in math, but not reading. All schools that met AYP in some fashion did so through a provision called Safe Harbor, which means a school reduced the number of nonproficient

students by 10 percent within a year. “What you’re seeing today is not unpredicted,” said Superintendent Don Schlomann. “It was certainly predicted that this would happen and we’re not alone. I guess that’s the only comfort to some extent.” The benchmark to meet AYP in 2013-14 is set at 100 percent. “It’s hard for people to understand what this means, and it’s hard for me to predict what’s going to happen,”

Schlomann said. “I wish I knew what was going to happen at the end of this year.” In other business, the committee addressed math scores at Richmond and Davis elementary schools, which are behind the district average. Becky McCabe, an assistant superintendent at St. Charles School District 303, explained that a few factors may have resulted in lower math scores, such as teachers relying on older resources, a change in the test scoring threshold and a new curriculum.

She said because the test scoring threshold changed, 124 students at Richmond who were “on the bubble” would have met standards if the threshold hadn’t changed. She said the next step is to look carefully at interventions and professional learning. “It’s the first year with new math and with cut scores being higher, we didn’t see the high results we wanted to,” McCabe said. “Is that because of the curriculum or the cut scores? Probably a little of both.”

By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – Mark Koenen on Monday thanked the St. Charles City Council moments after aldermen unanimously approved his appointment to the position of city administrator. The longtime public works director said he only planned to stay in public service for two years when he joined the city in 1982 at age 26. “Having disclosed that, the reason I am here is because Mark Koenen St. Charles is really a community of opportunity,” he said. Koenen proceeded to thank the mayors and city administrators he worked for and mentioned other city departments. “I see great success in our future because people really care,” he said. Koenen’s appointment takes effect Aug. 31. He replaces Brian Townsend, who is accepting a position with the village of Schaumburg. Koenen’s employment agreement, which the City Council unanimously approved, indicates he will receive a $170,000 salary. He was set to receive about $165,449 in total compensation this year as public works director, according to the city’s

total compensation report for 2013-14. His employment agreement doesn’t indicate what his total compensation will be as city administrator, but it includes such benefits as a $600 monthly vehicle allowance and a 5 percent deferred compensation plan. Koenen, who is working on a Master of Business Administration, will receive tuition for five courses of study toward that degree, according to the agreement. His agreement also calls for a six-month severance package. Townsend’s contract had a 12-month severance package. He was set to receive $217,377 in total compensation, including $193,110 in wages, according to the city’s total compensation report for 2013-14. Monday was Townsend’s last City Council meeting. Mayor Ray Rogina thanked him for “a job well done.”

for former First Baptist Church By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com

BATAVIA – Aldermen want to know what ideas developers have for the former First Baptist Church building in downtown Batavia. Aldermen at Monday’s Batavia City Council meeting approved a staff recommendation that the city issue a request for qualifications for potential purchasers, and that the purchasers be given the option to maintain or demolish the entire facility. “We need to see what the market will bear,” 7th Ward Alderman Dave Brown. “We would like to get it back on the tax rolls.” A Northbrook-based firm, WJE, has estimated it will cost at least $3.1 million to repair the former First Baptist Church building at the corner

“We need to see what the market will bear. We would like to get it back on the tax rolls.” Dave Brown 7th Ward alderman of Washington and Wilson streets in downtown Batavia so the building can be reused. Brown noted the city originally purchased the property to assist in a state project to straighten out the S-curve at the intersection. That project turned out not to be feasible and has been scrapped, he said. “We now have a piece of property we hope to see developed,” Brown said. The city has owned the facility since 2006, including

the late 19th century original church, a north addition built in the 1930s and a classroom wing built about 1959. The Batavia City Council had hired WJE to assess the building’s condition. The firm has inspected the building, and recommended repairs be made to the exterior and interior of the 1889 church, 1930s addition and 1959 classroom wing, as well as the building’s mechanical systems. The firm recommended the city budget between $3.1 million and $3.5 million for the work. WJE listed an estimated $775,000 in repairs to prevent additional damage to the building materials or features. Batavia-based Alpine Demolition Services has submitted an estimate of $146,250 to demolish the property.

STC liquor commission has first meeting

!

CLICK

By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Liquor Control Commission took no formal action during its first-ever meeting Monday afternoon. Members of the newly formed commission – the mayor, two aldermen and two residents – spent the hour discussing general issues, such as its roles and responsibilities and the differences among restaurants, restaurants/taverns and taverns. “We’re in the early stages here,” Mayor and Liquor Commissioner Ray Rogina said, noting the commission will set precedent as it moves forward. The St. Charles City Council created the liquor commission this summer after ongoing discussions about the city’s liquor license code. Aldermen had been scrutinizing liquor license issues since former Mayor Don DeWitte proposed an earlier closing time last year due to problems connected to overserving. Rogina selected 2nd Ward Alderman Rita Payleitner, 5th Ward Alderman Maureen Lewis and residents Charles Amenta and Robert Gehm to serve on the commission. Although they have an advisory role, he assured them he will value their input. “You’re not here just to throw words around,” Rogina said. “Your advice to me is very important.” The commission agreed to meet at 4:30 p.m. every third Monday as needed. Future discussion topics include 2 a.m. liquor licenses, Rogina said, referencing an idea that would make such a license a privilege and subject to annual review. The commission on Monday tabled a request from Lundeen’s Liquors to offer drive-thru window service at 1315 W. Main St., St. Charles, because the applicant was unable to attend the meeting. It intends to address that item next month.

New search reveals no clues on missing STC man By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com Stephanie McNeil hoped that Saturday’s search of Belleau Woods Forest Preserve in Wheaton would provide some clues into the disappearance of her brother, St. Charles resident John Spira, who went missing more than six years ago. The search came up empty. “It would have been nice to find something,” McNeil said. “I had hope. But I’m glad we were out doing this.” Spira, 45, was last seen Feb. 23, 2007, at Universal Cable Construction near West Chicago. Spira co-owned the company. The case has gathered worldwide attention. Spira’s disappearance was featured in 2010 as part of the Investigation Discovery cable show, “Disappeared.” According to the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office, Spira

was last seen by his business partner, Dave Stubben, at the Universal Cable Construction business. Belleau Woods is located near Stubben’s home. “I feel he knows something,” McNeil said. Stubben could not be reached for comment Saturday. McNeil also placed “missing” fliers on cars in a parking lot near the woods. Among those helping with the search Saturday was Susan Olsen, whose son, Bradley Olsen, 26, of Maple Park, was last seen about 2 a.m. Jan. 20, 2007, at Bar One in DeKalb. DeKalb police have said he arrived at the bar with some friends late Jan. 19. Susan Olsen has befriended McNeil since the disappearance of Spira. “I’ve tried to make it to all of John’s searches,” she said. “You never know what you will find on a search – a piece of clothing, a shoe, a cellphone.

Those all are things you know to look for.” Olsen said the DeKalb Police Department is investigating some “credible leads” into the disapperance of her son. Also helping in the search was Maple Park Village President Kathy Curtis, who is friends with the Olsen family. Curtis took note that Spira disappeared about a month after Bradley Olsen did. “It was so close to when Brad left us,” Curtis said. Those searching came across a suspicious looking mound of dirt, which was then dug up by DuPage County Forest Preserve staff. However, the Eric Schelkopf – eschelkopf@shawmedia.com mound of dirt turned out to be Stephanie McNeil on Saturday placed “missing” fliers on cars in a Wheajust that. ton parking lot.

McNeil believes her brother was murdered. “We need to get justice for John,” she said. “He deserves justice.”

Foreclosure activity drops in area jbilyk@shawmedia.com Lenders appeared again to repossess fewer homes in the Tri-Cities and surrounding communities in July. Last month, the number of homes facing foreclosure in central and western Kane County fell again, continuing a monthslong trend of decreasing foreclosure activity in the region. RealtyTrac, a company specializing in tracking home foreclosure activity nationwide, reported that in July, lenders were pursuing foreclosure actions against only 94 homeowners in a nine-ZIP code region that includes the Tri-Cities of St. Charles, Geneva and Batavia, as well as all – or portions of – Campton Hills, Elburn, Sugar Grove, North Aurora, South Elgin and Maple Park. The drop marked a decline of almost 39 percent from a year earlier, when the region suffered 153 home foreclosures in July 2012. The decline also continued a trend since the beginning of 2013. In each month since December 2012, foreclosure activity as measured and reported by

RealtyTrac has declined in the Tri-Cities region. Since April, for instance, home foreclosure activity in the region dropped each month by at least 18 percent, and by as much as 61 percent, compared to the same months in 2012. In July, foreclosure activity in the four ZIP codes that cover St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia and portions of Campton Hills, combined, declined again by about 34 percent, falling from 74 foreclosure actions to just 49. That followed a 62 percent month-over-month decline in those four ZIP codes in June, when foreclosure actions plummeted from 136 in June 2012 to

just 52 this June. Foreclosure activity also dropped in Elgin and Aurora, according to RealtyTrac. The tracking company said in Aurora’s 60505 ZIP code, the number of foreclosures declined from 88 in July 2012 to just 55 last month. And in Elgin’s 60123 postal code, foreclosures dropped from 75 to just 56 in July. The dip in local foreclosure activity squared with a sharp change throughout the Chicago area, as well, as RealtyTrac reported a 44 percent decline in foreclosure activity throughout the Chicago area this July versus a year ago.

Mandy Mayorga, 24, of Geneva sorts through items Saturday for the upcoming St. Peter Barn Sale, scheduled for Sept. 14 to 15 at the Kane County Fairgrounds in St. Charles. Mayorga and her brothers, Matthew and Michael, are co-chairs of this year’s sale. families with tight budgets. “One year I was working it, I met a family that was able to get enough for a baby nursery,” Mandy Mayorga said. “We also get a lot of college kids who are moving out on their own for the first time.” Rama Canney, volunteer and communications coordinator for St . Peter

Church, said she is glad to see young people like the Mayorgas getting involved. “They are really good at what they do,” Canney said. “And these guys have brought out some young volunteers. We hope we are building leadership in the church for the next generation.”

GENEVA – A man identified as James R. Stevens, 58, of St. Charles, died Sunday after he apparently lost control of his motorcycle and struck a tree, police said. Police Cmdr. Eric Passarelli said there were no witnesses to the crash itself, but it appeared Stevens was turning north into the 0-99 block of Kautz Road from Route 38 when he left the roadway and struck a tree about 2:46 p.m. “He was just coming out of the construction zone just north of Route 38,” Passarelli said. “What led to him losing control, we don’t know. It appears he struck the tree with his body. That time of the afternoon, someone traveling on Kautz saw him soon after it happened and called us.” Stevens was riding a 1985 Honda Nighthawk and not wearing a helmet, Passarelli said. The West Chicago Fire Department transported Stevens to Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield where he was pronounced dead, Passarelli said. The traffic crash remains under investigation, he said.

As Mike Mayorga sorted through an array of items Saturday for the upcoming St. Peter Barn Sale, he was glad he had an army of volunteers helping him. “Making sure we have enough volunteers is our biggest challege,” Mayorga said. Mayorga, 19, and his siblings, Matthew Mayorga, 19, and Mandy Mayorga, 24, all of Geneva, are the co-chairs of this year’s St. Peter Barn Sale, which will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 14 and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 15 at the Kane County Fairgrounds at Route 38 and Randall Road in St. Charles. They were at the site Saturday to work on sorting duties. The barn sale is a fundraiser for St. Peter Church in Geneva and has been hosted by different Catholic parishes over the years. The annual sale features thousands of donated items including antiques, books and music, china, glassware, toys and furniture. The Mayorgas have grown up with the sale as their parents, Miguel and Luanne Mayorga, are longtime volunteers and past co-chairs of the event.

OPINIONS LETTERS TO THE EDITOR A successful night To the Editor: We would like to thank our local police and fire departments, service organizations, nonprofit groups, local businesses, sponsors and volunteers for participating in our seventh National Night Out at the village of Campton Hills. Our community residents and their families were provided entertainment, education and information about our village services, special programs and local small businesses. As a result of everyone’s generosity and participation, we enjoyed our most successful National Night Out ever. Police Chief Daniel Hoffman and the Campton Hills Community Relations Committee

Ensure quality by keeping printed pharmaceutical instructions At EyeC America, we design the quality control systems used primarily in pharmaceutical printing. You might not think of us as a health care company, but the products we inspect go to doctors and to patients, which in turn provide them with essential information about the medications they are using. In the U.S., our headquarters are in St. Charles, where we are proud to have been part of the local community since 2009. Unfortunately, a proposal in Congress would almost completely eliminate the paper instructions that accompany prescriptions, which the law currently requires drug companies to provide. This bad idea is part of an otherwise noncontroversial effort to reduce counterfeit medication called the Safeguarding

America’s Pharmaceuticals Act, legislation that we and many others in our industry support. Instead of requiring useful and sometimes lifesaving instructions that travel with medication, a section of this bill would force doctors, pharmacists and patients to rely mainly on the Internet to obtain this necessary information. This is a bad idea even in areas that enjoy fast, reliable Internet access. Put simply, information about how to take medicine should stay with the medicine. Of course, not everyone has Internet access. Millions of Americans – especially seniors and other vulnerable populations likely to take prescription medication – can’t afford or don’t have access to the Internet or don’t feel comfortable using it for obtaining essential

GUEST VIEWS Dr. Juergen Klicker information. Depriving these Americans of paper pharmaceutical instructions creates a potentially deadly gulf between haves and have-nots, especially during times of Internet outage or natural disaster. This proposal hits at the heart of what my company does – help print shops and pharmaceutical companies guarantee that these instructions are printed legibly and without error.

doctors have the same peace of mind when these often complex materials are accessed online without anything close to resembling current quality control measures? Moreover, this is a jobs issue. In addition to our company, there are several others in Chicagoland that span our industry. If this proposal were to become law, it could lead to a 10 percent to 15 percent loss in revenue for our company. Nationwide, our industry employs over 10,000 workers, including 1,000 in Illinois. It hardly seems advisable to enact such an untested and dangerous provision when it could also result in serious job and economic loss. EyeC America is proud to provide this simple, reliable and time-tested method of helping people preserve their health. Our workers

and community would suffer if this provision were to become law. Though it has already passed the House, the provision is not included in similar legislation currently being considered in the Senate, which I hope remains the case. In its efforts to reduce counterfeit medications, Congress should not restrict the vital information patients, doctors and pharmacists receive about those very medications.

New Cougar Gretzky picks different path By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com

G

ENEVA – Trevor Gretzky’s parents always encouraged him to choose his own path growing up, which in part explains Gretzky’s current coordinates along the Kirk Road corridor. The son of hockey legend Wayne Gretzky pursued football and baseball as a child. Had he tried taking after his old man, it’s likely Gretzky would have appeared at neighboring Fox Valley Ice Arena before Fifth Third Bank Ballpark. The Cubs drafted Gretzky as an outfielder in the seventh round in 2011, some 15 months before agreeing to a player-development contract with the Cougars. Making his Kane County debut over the weekend, Gretzky wore No. 29 – a ways off from his dad’s iconic 99 by design. “They’ve done a good job of letting me do my thing, too, you know,” said Gretzky, whose mother is actress Janet Jones. “They don’t want to be here every day. They obviously could. But they want me to kind of learn the ropes and do it on my own.” Gretzky, 20, entered Monday’s game against Clinton still in search of his first Midwest League hit. He joined the Cougars from Short-A Boise on Wednesday on the heels of Dan Vogelbach’s promotion to Advanced-A Daytona. He was 0 for 3 with a walk Saturday night and batted .256 with six RBIs in 27 games at Boise. Giving up hockey at a young age because other sports interested him more, Gretzky was the starting quarterback at Oaks Christian (Calif.) High for a time and turned down a baseball scholarship to San Diego State when the Cubs drafted him. Competing for playing time in a Boise outfield that included another pro sports legacy in Shawon Dunston, Jr., Gretzky worked to mimic the approach of all minor leaguers: Make an impression whenever given an opening. “I’ve been healthy.

Cougars outfielder Trevor Gretzky (left) made his home debut Saturday against Clinton.

More inside The Cougars suffered a 9-2 loss against Clinton on Monday night. Page 16 leading scorer after the 1998-99 season. The oldest player in the clubhouse, 24-year-old left-hander Sheldon McDonald, was born in Edmonton about three months after his hometown Oilers traded Gretzky to the Los Angeles Kings in August 1988. Many believe the deal that sent the four-time Stanley Cup winner west changed the landscape of modern hockey. “I didn’t get to see all the glory days, but I definitely watched the replays and watched him play when he was still playing,” McDonald said. “He was a great player, and it’s pretty cool to have Trevor on the team. Hopefully, maybe Wayne will come up for the last series and we can talk to him a bit.” Trevor Gretzky – the middle of five children – made no promises, but mentioned his parents could be in attendance for part of the Cougars’ final home series over Labor Day weekend. Several relatives from his mom’s side

of the family traveled from the St. Louis suburb of Kirkwood, Mo., for games Saturday and Sunday. Gretzky’s parents live in California but spend their summers in Spokane, Wash., and Idaho, which made for convenient travel when their son was with Boise. Vancouver, the most metropolitan stop in the Northwest League, was abuzz when Wayne Gretzky was on hand while the Hawks were in town in mid-July. The son of The Great One aspires not to be The Great Big One, or to upstage his famous father. Still, for all the physical resemblances, the 6-foot-4, 190-pound Gretzky realizes corner outfielders can’t always be lithe. Before Monday, just five of his 57 minor-league hits went for extra bases, including zero home runs. “The offseason’s going to be huge for me. I’ve got to put on some weight and I’m going to spend a lot of time in the weightroom, and that’s the biggest thing for me,” Gretzky said. “But I just think I need to keep doing what I’m doing and work hard, and it’ll happen. It’ll come together.”

East-North win by 10 over Geneva-Batavia By DENNIS D. JACOBS editorial@kcchronicle.com

• Tuesday, August 20, 2013

GENEVA – Bill Koehn didn’t go out a winner Monday in his final McChesney Cup as Geneva’s boys golf coach, but this unusual high school golfing event never has been about winning and losing. Koehn, who is retiring after coaching the Vikings for 30 seasons, got together with the other Tri-Cities boys golf coaches seven years ago to start the event, which pits the two St. Charles schools against a combined Batavia-Geneva squad in a Ryder Cup-style format. The idea was to build some camaraderie between kids from schools that are normally archrivals in sporting competitions. “I would love to see it continue,” Koehn said. “I think it’s great for the relationships of the kids. Us four coaches have known each other for a long, long time. It’s just a fun thing for us to get here and watch the kids interact.” The season-opening event always has been held at the Geneva Golf Club, a fact that worked in favor of St. Charles East senior Connor McCadam. “This is my third year playing [this event],” he said. “I know this course pretty well by now.” McCadam won all three matches he took part to help the Saints and North Stars defeat the Bulldogs and Vikings, 185-175. He first teamed with North senior Ben Connor to win a best-ball match against Batavia’s Jacob Piechota and Geneva’s Dan Cisco. McCadam and Connor also prevailed in an alternate shot competition against Cisco and Nick Bleidorn, and McCadam downed Matt Fisher of Geneva in a singles match, 6-3. “My driver was really working for me,” McCadam

I chipped in for birdie to win in the first round, so that was nice.” After the best-ball and alternate-shot matches, East and North held a point lead. They got a big boost in the singles matches from the North Stars’ Matt Samuelson, who won seven of nine holes and split another. “I made putts when I needed to,” Samuelson said. “I didn’t hit the ball the best, but I ended up scoring pretty well. Unfortunately, the kid I was playing didn’t play his best and I was able to take advantage of that.”

A bright spot for the Batavia and Geneva squad was the play of Bulldogs’ sophomore Blake Lawrence, who was on the winning side in two matches and split another. “I wasn’t driving the ball too good, but I was making a lot of putts,” Lawrence said, “halving holes when they needed to be halved and winning when they needed to be won.” Lawrence was playing in the event for the first time, but if he has his way, it won’t be the last. “I like it,” he said. “It’s good watching the Ryder Cup and then coming out here and playing just like the Ryder Cup.”

GENEVA BOYS BASKETBALL

Santos opts for prep school By JAY SCHWAB jschwab@shawmedia.com The prospect of two Division I talents playing alongside one another for each of the next two seasons amped up expectations for a Geneva boys basketball program that has not won an IHSA regional since the 1985-86 season. Now the Vikings must seek to continue the program’s momentum with their star power cut in half. J u n i o r wing KJ Santos will transfer from Gene- KJ Santos va to Vermont Academy, a prep school located in Saxtons River, Vt. The move was announced by Santos’ AAU program, the Illinois Stars, Sunday night. The 6-foot-7 Santos spent most of last year on Geneva’s sophomore team but was called up to varsity late in the regular season. He is regarded as a high-end shooter, especially given his size, and drained consecutive 3-pointers in the second quarter of Geneva’s regional semifinal upset victory against Hinsdale Central. Santos played with Geneva’s summer team in June, and his recruiting stock sizzled after strong play with the Illinois Stars in July. He holds Division I scholarship offers from Xavier, VCU, DePaul, Illinois-Chicago, Army and Fairfield. Vikings junior forward Nate Navigato, the team’s leading scorer last year, also

has an offer from UIC. “I can’t say it was a complete surprise,” Geneva coach Phil Ralston said of Santos transferring. “It was a rumor that had kind of been going on the entire summer but his family never communicated anything with me so I wasn’t sure how much stock to really put into it. If this turns out to be the case that he’s going out to Vermont, we certainly wish him nothing but the best and hope it works out for him.” Santos’ older sister, Ashley, graduated from Geneva and currently plays college basketball at Marquette, while another older sister, Sidney, is a Geneva senior and starter for the VIkings’ girls basketball team. Santos was flying home Monday from a trip to play with Puerto Rico’s youth national team and could not be reached for comment. The Illinois Stars’ announcement, made via Twitter, indicated Santos also would re-classify from a class of 2015 recruit to class of 2016. Another Illinois Stars AAU product, 7-1 center Tyler Jackson, also transferred to Vermont Academy for this school year. Ralston said he maintains high hopes this winter for Geneva, which is coming off a 21-9 season. “We have a bunch of really nice young men who worked really hard over the summer, many of whom we felt improved their skill sets,” Ralston said. “I still feel like we’re going to have a pretty good team this next year.”

Cougars crushed by LumberKings KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE GENEVA – A four-run first inning paced the Clinton LumberKings as they cruised to a convincing 9-2 victory over the Kane County Cougars on Monday in front of 7,374 fans at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark. Brock Hebert and Alfredo Morales walked to start the ballgame against starter Starling Peralta (2-1). Dario Pizzano singled home Hebert while D.J. Peterson hit an RBI double off the left-center field wall to score Morales, putting the LumberKings (62-63, 29-27) up by two. Pizzano scored on a Taylor Ard sac fly while a fielder’s choice from Janelfry Zorilla drew Peterson to the dish, capping the rally. Peralta lasted 4⅓ innings but stumbled a couple more times. Four consecutive singles in the top of the third put a three-spot up for the LumberKings. Gaby Guerrero scored on a Martin Peguero

The Cougars’ (50-71, 2035) Rock Shoulders singled off the wall in right to bring home Gioskar Amaya and Jeimer Candelario. Clinton added two more runs in the top of the fifth against Peralta. Zorilla hit a double to left to score Guerrero. Peguero followed with a sacrifice fly to finish the scoring.

Money talks, good and bad, for some Bears LAKE FOREST – Let’s talk money. Tickets cost money. Players earn money. The NFL swims in money. Slick Willie Sutton should have robbed football teams instead of banks because that’s really where the money is. Sometimes, though, money isn’t divided among players as fairly as it should be. Some players are underpaid while others are overpaid. Other deals, like the last bowl of porridge, are just right. The Bears focused on money this week when they reportedly sliced J’Marcus Webb’s salary almost in half, reducing it to the minimum allowed for a fourth-year player. The move, which was reported by the Chicago Tribune, made sense considering Webb’s woeful preseason. Why stop at Webb? Using the Bears’ salary database at spotrac.com, I searched for other moves that could be on the money.

Time for a raise Tim Jennings ($5.1 million) No player in the NFL picked off more passes last season than Jennings, whose nine interceptions marked the most by any defender since 2009. Jennings earned

a starting spot in the Pro Bowl opposite teammate Charles Tillman, who is set to earn Tim Jennings $8 million this season. Barring injury, it’s a safe bet that Jennings will command a pay increase as an unrestricted free agent next spring.

Chris Conte ($698,400) Conte, who is known to his teammates as “Birdman,” deserves a big pay raise so he can build a bigger nest. The Bears lacked stability at the safety position for years, but Conte has helped to change that fact since his arrival as a third-round draft pick in 2011. Fellow safety Major Wright is set to earn almost $1.5 million this season, and it doesn’t seem right that Conte will earn less than half of that.

Jordan Mills ($446,200) Yes, Mills is a 2013 fifth-round draft pick from Louisiana Tech who has yet to play a regular-season snap in the NFL. But the rookie already has impressed his coaches enough to warrant a starting spot at right tackle heading into the Bears’ third preseason game against the

VIEWS Tom Musick Oakland Raiders. If Mills helps to bolster the offensive line and protect Jay Cutler, he will deserve a big tip for his hard work.

Time for a pay cut Julius Peppers ($16.183 million) Go ahead, pick your adjective. Peppers is a monster, a beast, a freak, a force. He also is overpaid. (Shhh! Please don’t tell the 6-footJulius Peppers 7, 287-pound monster-beastfreak-force we want to cut his pay.) Anyway, Peppers has averaged 10.2 sacks and 2.3 forced fumbles a season since joining the Bears in 2010. He’s a great player beyond statistics, too. But he’s not worthy of $1 million-plus a game.

Earl Bennett ($2.35 million) Late in the 2011 season – not long before ex-general manager Jerry Angelo was given the heave-ho from Halas Hall – Bennett received an early Christmas gift in the form of a four-year

contract extension. Thus far, Bennett has fallen far short of earning his new money. He caught 29 passes for 375 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games in 2012, and a concussion has kept him out for the past two weeks.

J’Marcus Webb ($645,150) It’s probably time for Webb to become another team’s headache. The fourthyear offensive lineman from West Texas A&M has squandered his second chance (and third chance, and fourth chance) to become a starting tackle for the Bears, and now he might not even earn a spot on the 53-man roster. Use Webb’s salary to pay players who want to be here – and who won’t waste their opportunities.

Time will tell Jay Cutler ($10.37 million) Unless you have been vacationing on Revis Island for the past several months, you know Cutler is entering the final year of his contract with the Bears. You also know that the Bears do not plan to negotiate any contract extensions until after the season is finished. In a league that is desperate for talented quarterbacks, Cutler will strike it rich this offseason. The only question

is how rich.

Henry Melton ($8.45 million) Although the Bears failed to reach a long-term deal with Melton, they retained the Pro Bowl defensive tackle for at least one more season by way of the franchise tag. If Melton can duplicate Henry Melton his dominance from last season, then his price tag is in the right ballpark. But if he regresses or battles injuries, then the Bears will end up regretting their decision to spend so much on an interior lineman.

Devin Hester ($2,940,856) Right now, it seems unnecessary to devote almost $3 million to a kick returner who will play no role whatsoever on the offense. But that’s right now. If Hester breaks a long kickoff or punt return that helps to win a game or two, then his price tag will be well worth it. An extra win or two could be the difference that puts the Bears in the playoffs.

BEARS NOTES

Palmer glad to get another chance, set to start By KEVIN FISHBAIN kfishbain@shawmedia.com LAKE FOREST – Jordan Palmer pointed out his beard to reporters, because he hasn’t had time to buy a razor since the Bears called. The 29-year old, known more for being Carson’s brother, is one of two veteran quarterbacks the Bears signed this past weekend after Matt Blanchard fractured a knuckle. Last Friday, Palmer was interviewing interns at his marketing firm. This Friday, he’ll be playing for the Bears in Oakland and he is expected

to start the preseason finale against Cleveland. “It’s difficult, but at the same time, all you can ask for is an opportunity, and that’s what this is,” he said. It was not a surprise when the Bears added Palmer – he had worked out for the team in June and they needed another arm. But when they added veteran Trent Edwards on Sunday, then there were questions, and Marc Trestman explained the strategy – both Jay Cutler and Josh McCown will sit the final preseason game. “We’ll get [Palmer and Edwards] a chance to play and

get on tape. … If something would happen to Jordan as the third, we still would have wanted to protect Josh, so that’s the reason why we’ve got two quarterbacks coming in,” he said. For Edwards and Palmer, they know making the Bears’ final roster is a stretch – though Trestman did discuss the merits of carrying three quarterbacks – but this also allows them a chance to get some game experience for other teams to see. “I’ve learned when you play as long as I’ve played, you control what you can control. The longer you play, the

fewer things you can control,” Palmer said. “I’m excited to come in here and take advantage of any opportunity I get and we’ll see what happens in the end.”

Sticking with the rookies: Trestman said Jordan Mills and Kyle Long will remain the starters on the right side of the line this week. “There were enough good things that happened that we feel like we want to give them another opportunity to go out and play a little bit more against the first group and see what they can do,” he said. D.J. Update: Middle linebacker D.J. Williams remains

out with a calf injury suffered early in training camp. Trestman said they hope to get him back in practice “in the next 12 to 14 days or better.” Rookie Jon Bostic has been the starter in Williams’ absence. Quick hits: D T H e n r y Melton, WR Earl Bennett, LS Patrick Mannelly, RB Harvey Unga, DT Corvey Irvin, DE Cheta Ozougwu, OT Jonathan Scott and QB Matt Blanchard did not practice. … RB Armando Allen (hamstring) returned to practice. … This was the Bears’ first practice this preseason at the renovated Halas Hall in Lake Forest.

In the 1880s, New York workers formed groups called craft unions. Bricklayers had their own union. The carpenters had theirs and so did the printers. After a while, these small unions formed a larger union called the Knights of Labor. The Knights of Labor fought for workers’ rights. Their “weapons” were words and votes. They fought to get children out of the factories and the mines. They fought for better pay and safer working environments. Standards Link: History/Social Science: Students understand working conditions and the rise of the labor movement. Students understand events honored in commemorative holidays. Students understand the difficulties populations have faced in the American culture.

In 1882, a New York City union called the Central Labor Union (C.L.U.) decided to hold a parade and picnic for workers on September 5. The parade would be a chance for workers to show off their work. More than 10,000 marchers showed up that day. Thousands more watched the parade. Many of the people carried signs that told what the workers wanted to change.

Making light of ‘The World’s End’ By BOB TREMBLAY More Content Now Anyone who has seen the trailer for “The World’s End” knows that the film’s title refers to more than the name of the final drinking hole on a pub crawl being undertaken by five friends. If you haven’t seen the trailer, well, I’m not going to provide the spoiler. Sure, you could hazard an educated guess. I just think it’s better to remain blissfully unaware. It’s funnier that way. The trio who brought you “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” – Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost – were at the Liberty Hotel in Boston recently to promote “The World’s End.” As with the previous two movies, Wright directs and co-writes, Pegg co-writes and co-stars and Frost co-stars. They are joined this time by Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan. Rosamund Pike provides the love interest. The film opens in 1990 in the suburban English town of Newton Haven where five teenage boys embark on a lengthy libation excursion. Tragically, they fail in their noble attempt to drink at all 12 pubs. Flash forward about 20 years and Gary King (Pegg), who has become a professional slacker, decides to bring his friends together to finish what they started. Not surprisingly, his now adult former chums, who apparently do not suffer from arrested development, are reluctant to participate in this endeavor, but Gary is very convincing. When the quintet returns to Newton Haven, they discover a secret requiring them to do more than bend their elbows. Hilarity ensues. For the interview, the three Englishmen, all

The film “The World’s End” opens in theaters Friday, Aug. 23. dressed casually in black, had no trouble unsheathing a sharp sense of humor on subjects ranging from the state of current cinema to, of course, British wrestling. Asked how the cast was assembled, Pegg quipped, “It was very much like the film. I went around to them all individually, doorstepped them and manipulated them, and then we shot it.” Getting serious, albeit momentarily, he said: “We had these actors in mind to the point where Edgar and I were writing their names in the script before we even actually checked their availability. We went after our Dream Team, really. “We wanted to work with Martin again because he had been in ‘Shaun of the Dead’ and ‘Hot Fuzz’ in smaller roles and we wanted him to have a main role in this one. It seemed only right seeing how amazing an actor he is. Paddy, we had worked with before and love. He often plays quite dark, intense characters, but he’s an incredibly gifted comic actor as well so we liked the idea of him playing a sort of soppy, puppy dog character. Eddie only plays abusers and rapists so we thought [he could play] a nice part this time. ... We count ourselves extremely lucky because they are,

present company excepted, the cream of the crop.” As to whether the three would collaborate again, Wright said: “There’s nothing formally in the works at all, although we’d like to work together again. ... When we made ‘Shaun of the Dead,’ we didn’t want to do a sequel to [it]. We wanted to do ‘Hot Fuzz’ and make it like a thematic sequel. Then when we were making ‘Hot Fuzz’ and the idea of a third one came up, we liked that there were ways of linking the three. There are thematic wrap-ups in this movie. Like we dealt with the idea of growing up and the dangers of perpetual adolescence like in the first two movies, and in this one, we made it the central theme of the movie. “If we do future stuff together, we might do something completely radically different. We wanted these three films to exist as a piece and work as standalone movies.” FYI, the films are known as the Cornetto trilogy because of a Cornetto ice cream connection. Sorry, no spoiler explanation here either. Wright also addressed the screwball nature of the comedy in “The World’s End.” “We wanted the dialogue to go really fast,” he said. “The

scene with Rosamund and Simon in the [bathroom], once we got a good take, I said to them, ‘Now do it Marx Brothers speed.’ You should never wait for people to laugh. You see movies where (the actors) pause for a laugh. You have to keep powering through and if people laugh over a joke, that’s great. That’s a good kind of problem to have. ‘I couldn’t hear that joke because people laughed over the previous one.’ Fine, go see it again. The thing is you can’t do that kind of screwball, machine-gun dialogue if the performers can’t do it. You have to have a cast that’s really great at doing that.” He clearly did. One interviewer arrived late, so when it came time to ask a question, Frost deadpanned, “You only get to ask us a general knowledge question.” The question actually pertained to a belief expressed by the interviewer’s Oxford-educated roommate that the trilogy represents the stalwart nature of English culture in the face of global conformity. Pegg concurred. “All three films are very much about an individual or a small group of people facing off against a larger sort of homogenizing force,” he said. “This comes from being on the fringes of various filmmaking and comedy. We prefer the alternative strains than the broader strokes, though there is broad comedy in what we do. We’re also from a very small island in the North Sea, that’s part of Britishness itself. ... It’s always been a fascination of ours and one of the key thematic links [among] the three films – the struggle of identity in the face of hegemonic force. ... It gets taken to its absolute extreme in this one.”

Thin-skinned groom berates guest who sent regrets Dear Abby: I recently declined a wedding invitation because my spouse and I will be out of town on the date of the wedding. A few days after I sent the RSVP, I got an email from the groom saying he had “suspicions” that I wasn’t attending because I was bitter about not being in the wedding party. I was shocked by the email. Not only do I not care about who is in the wedding party, I don’t think we’re such close friends that we should have been invited in the first place. I emailed him back, explaining that we will be out of town and how upset and disappointed I am that he would think something like that. Wasn’t what he did a breach of etiquette? – Appalled In New York Dear Appalled: Yes, it was. Your inability to attend the wedding appears to have brought to the surface the groom’s insecurity about his social relationships. I don’t blame you for being appalled. The man’s behavior was inappropriate. Dear Abby: My sister is 63, divorced, educated, intelligent,

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips self-employed and receives monthly support from her ex-husband. The problem is she takes no responsibility for her health. She’s extremely overweight because she overeats and doesn’t exercise. She complains every day that she feels “terrible.” (I call it self-pitying whining.) I want to address the issue now, before she gains even more, or has a stroke or heart attack and, quite frankly, won’t be able to care for herself. Your thoughts? – Sibling Standing By Dear Sibling: The problem with “confronting” someone is that it usually makes the person being confronted defensive. In a case like this I don’t recommend it. However, a family INTERVENTION might work. If the family members were to get together and, as a group, talk to your sister about your concern for her health, it might be the wake-up call she

needs. No mention of “whining” should be made, but suggest that she might have a touch of depression that could be helped if she brings it to the attention of her doctor. Dear Abby: When my wife and I go to a busy restaurant or a concert where we can pick up last-minute tickets, I often ask her to hop out of the car to find out if the wait times are reasonable or tickets are available while I wait in the car. I do this so I won’t have to find a parking space until we’re sure we will be staying. My wife says my doing this is tacky. I believe it is efficient. What are your thoughts? – John K. In Windsor, Conn. Dear John K.: Your request makes perfect sense to me. Parking spaces are sometimes hard to find and valet parking isn’t cheap. However, because your wife resents doing this, either she should be the one to drive so you can “hop out,” or tickets and reservations should be made in advance. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Weigh the risks of depression medication during pregnancy Dear Doctor K: I take an SSRI for depression. I’m trying to get pregnant, but I’m worried about going off my antidepressant during pregnancy. Can I continue to take an SSRI? Dear Reader: You can, but at some small risk to the baby. But if you stop taking the SSRI while you are pregnant, you may increase your own risk of worsening depression during and after the pregnancy. So I don’t have an easy answer. Treating depression is important for both your sake and your baby’s. Untreated depression during pregnancy increases your risk of postpartum depression. It also makes it more likely that your baby will be lethargic, irritable and underweight at birth. But what kind of treatment? Medication is one option. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most common drugs prescribed for depression. SSRIs include fluoxetine (Prozac), sertraline (Zoloft), citalopram (Celexa) and escitalopram (Lexapro). Another option is “talk therapy.” This can be traditional oneon-one sessions with a therapist. It also can mean family therapy, involving you, your spouse and

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff possibly other family members. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a particular talk-therapy technique that can help you learn ways to think positively and solve problems. Even if your doctor says you need to continue taking medication along with talk therapy, you may be able to lower your dose or reduce the length of time you need the medication. You can also explore other non-drug options. For example, consider exercise (under your doctor’s supervision) or mindfulness meditation to help manage your depression. The risk to your baby from taking SSRIs during pregnancy is very small, but still real. SSRI drugs that are in your blood travel through the placenta and enter the bloodstream of your developing baby. SSRIs during pregnancy are linked to increased risk of heart birth defects, respiratory problems and withdrawal symptoms in babies. Risk of miscarriage and premature birth may also increase. The FDA has

labeled paroxetine (Paxil) unsafe for use during pregnancy. Guidelines from the American Psychiatric Association and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommend medication for expectant mothers with severe depression. But for pregnant women with mild to moderate depression, they recommend psychotherapy. That’s probably the most important point. If in the years before pregnancy your depression has been severe, you will probably need medication along with talk therapy during the pregnancy. By “severe,” I mean you have had many episodes of depression, or episodes that are quite severe and make it very hard for you to function, or both. Particularly if you have had severe depression in the past, and your past reaction to medications has been positive, the risk to you and your baby from not taking medication is probably greater than the risk of taking medication.

Girl’s crush has difficult time conversing with her Dr. Wallace: Zachary was my date for the junior-senior prom. He is very nice, very cute and very shy, so I was surprised when he asked me to the most important school activity of the year. I had a wonderful time, but it was like pulling teeth to get him to hold a conversation. Most of the evening I asked him questions and he would give me oneword answers like “yes,” “no” or “sometimes.” This summer, we didn’t see each other much because I was visiting my grandmother in Cleveland for a month. But my sister is getting married in three weeks, and I’m going to invite him to the wedding. I’m positive he will say yes because he has told my best friend he really likes me and is working up the courage to ask me out again. What can I do to get him to hold a conversation? He is a big sports fan. – P.J., Orlando, Fla. Dear P.J.: Asking shy people questions is a good way to get them to open up, but don’t ask questions that can be answered with a single word. Instead of asking, “Do you like pizza?” say, “Pizza and french fries are two of my favorite foods. What are your favorite foods?” Or instead of saying, “Do you like sports?” say, “Who is your favorite baseball team?” and then “How did they do this summer?” His answers might be short and to the point, but they won’t be just “yes” or “no.” The idea is to get him to relax and start trusting you and feeling comfortable telling you what’s on his mind. When the conversation door has opened a little bit, follow up with questions that require more detailed answers. Be sure to listen to him and

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace respond to what he says with questions and comments demonstrating that you’ve heard him. Uncommunicative people often simply do not believe anyone else will care what they have to say. Your job is to show him how interested you are in his ideas, opinions and feelings. Once he gets comfortable with the idea of sharing his thoughts, he’ll probably have a great deal to say. Then you will contact me again asking what you can do to keep him quiet! Dr. Wallace: I’m a Coke addict (the soda pop kind). I drink up to a six-pack of Cokes daily. Lately I have been starting to have complexion problems. My grandfather thinks the soda is causing the problem. Is this possible? If it is, I’ll quit drinking soda because I’m scared to death of having a face full of pimples. I’m 16 years old. – Nameless, Goshen, Ind. Dear Nameless: Soft drinks provide empty calories and little else, so you should keep your intake limited. Fruit juices, low-fat or nonfat milk, and plain old reliable water would be better sources of liquids. But to answer your question, it is extremely doubtful (almost nil) that your complexion problem was started or encouraged by soft drinks. Make an appointment to see a dermatologist. Recent medical research has worked miracles in curbing teen acne. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@ galesburg.net.

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

• Tuesday, August 20, 2013

CELEBRITY CIPHER

George Orwell said: “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” At the bridge table, though, who controls the present often controls the future. In this deal, how should the defense go against four spades after West leads the diamond king? North, a point-count addict, made a three-spade, game-invitational limit raise with a hand that is worth a game-forcing raise. Apply the Losing Trick Count. The North hand has only six losers: two spades (because you deduct one loser for a 10-card or better fit), one heart, two diamonds and one club. A limit raise shows eight losers; a game-forcing raise promises seven or fewer. East wondered about intervening with four hearts, but knew that it was highly dangerous. However, note that five hearts goes down only one, which is very cheap if four spades is making. Those double fits are delicious. At trick one, East should pause for thought. From where might four defensive tricks come? He can see the spade ace and presumably two diamonds, but what is number four? Right – a club ruff in the East hand. However, if East plays a discouraging diamond four at trick one, West will probably shift to the heart queen. East must take control. He overtakes the diamond king with his ace and switches to his singleton club. East wins the next trick with his spade ace and returns the diamond four. West takes that and gives his partner the lethal ruff. If you can see how to defeat the contract, grab the steering wheel.
