H-BR looks for another long postseason run

DeKalb program’s role debated By CHRIS BURROWS cburrows@shawmedia.com DeKALB – The plan for DeKalb’s fledgling Crime Free Housing Program to hire three part-time property inspectors remains intact, at least for now. Sixth Ward Alderman

Some want housing effort to focus on crime; others urge patience Dave Baker brought the issue before the City Council at Monday’s meeting, but moved to successfully postpone action until the next meeting citing the absence of Aldermen David Jacobson and Kristen

Former students now teach alongside their role models

By CHRIS BURROWS cburrows@shawmedia.com DeKALB – The union that represents DeKalb School District 428 teachers expects the approval of its new contract with the school board to go smoothly today. Negotiators representing the DeKalb Classroom Teachers Association reached a tentative deal with board negotiators Saturday, and teachers ratified the new three-year pact Sunday. But it won’t become official until a vote by the board in a special meeting at 7:30 a.m. today at the District’s Education Center, 901 S. Fourth St. Union spokesman T.J. Fontana said the DCTA expects an uneventful approval. “It seems like in talking to the two board members that we’ve been dealing with – [school board President] Tom Matya and [Vice PresTom Matya ident] Tracy District 428 school board Williams – this [deal] has the president support of the board,” Fontana said. “We’re hoping that this is going to be a quick meeting.” The agenda for the meeting doesn’t make note of an opportunity for public comment, but Fontana said teachers union members and their supporters weren’t planning to speak, anyway. Teachers are expected to be at work this morning in preparation for the start of school Wednesday. “We have to report to work at 8 a.m. [today], so we couldn’t [come out in force] even if we wanted,” Fontana said. “We feel that the board members and the members of the negotiating team are speaking on our behalf at this time.” A message left with Williams, the board’s spokesman, was not immediately returned Monday.

fsarver@shawmedia.com Andy Jordan likes to joke that he’s spent 21 of his 26 years at Sycamore School District 427. He attended school in the district and then returned to teach high school social studies after graduating from Northern Illinois University. When he started teaching, he saw lots of familiar faces, including Brian Koehne, who taught Jordan in both middle school and high school. Koehne has to remind Jordan that he’s old enough to call him by his first name now. “It’s kind of interesting not calling teachers ‘mister’ or ‘missus’ because that’s

nomenon throughout DeKalb County, but experienced teachers said watching their

students grow into teachers who work alongside them can be a rare pleasure. “It’s kind of fun to see those kids come back and doing the profession that I love to do,” Koehne said. For Jill Nicholson, returning to teach at Genoa-Kingston High School was her way of giving back to her community. Nicholson said several longtime Genoa-Kingston teachers inspired her to become a special education teacher before she graduated high school in 1980. Nicholson and her daughter had the same English teacher, Carol Smith, who knew how to handle their attitudes, she said.

Keeping up with Kay Shelton not easy Kay Shelton, dressed in duster and cap as the early 1900s pioneer woman motorist Alice Ramsey, with Jeff Keel, who portrayed Carl G. Fisher, whose vision became the Lincoln Highway, in May at the Egyptian Theatre for a centennial program.

DeKALB COUNTY LIFE Barry Schrader One might say that Kay Shelton is a Type A personality, considering that she holds three jobs, serves as president of the DeKalb County League of Women Voters, and is in her second term as national president of the Lincoln Highway Association. I did manage to chase her down for a brief interview about the celebration along Lincoln Highway during its 100th anniversary as the first cross-country road that stretched from New York to San Francisco. June was her busiest month for the centennial observance. She flew to New York City on a Friday, to be chauffered in a red 1963 Valiant convertible along the highway from Times Square to New Jersey on Saturday for the East Coast kickoff of the antique and classic cars caravan. She caught a plane to San Francisco later that day for the West Coast tour kickoff dinner, and on Sunday participated in the ceremony launching the procession leaving from the Western terminus of the route. Later that day, she flew back to Illinois and still managed to show up for work Monday morning. Days later, she rejoined the Eastern caravan at Joliet and went as far as Kearney, Neb., at the geographical center of the Highway, where they met the Western group and took part in the centennial year conference. Her ground and air travel that week she totaled more than 5,000 miles. There have been many other events during this special year, including

Center and the other in front of Oak Crest DeKalb Area Retirement Center. Shelton said she has no problem with them being relocated, because she feels they are safer than the original locations and are being l cared for as well. To make a living, Shelton teaches geography and anthropology parttime at Kishwaukee College, works full-time in an office job at Northern Illinois University and holds another part-time job at a local pharmacy. She is state director for the Illinois Lincoln Highway affiliate, and manages the website and newsletter, plus handles publicity. In her remaining spare time she serves on the Presidential Commission on the Status of Minorities at NIU. But, as they say, “If you want to get something done quickly and efficiently, give it to a busy person.”

the 100th Birthday Bash at the Egyptian Theatre in DeKalb back in May, at which she emceed and acted and dressed as Alice Ramsey, the first woman to drive (a Maxwell 30) from coast to coast. She was joined in the presentation by professional actor Jeff Keel, who portrayed Carl G. Fisher, the man who first envisioned and promoted the Lincoln Highway project. Discussing the centennial caravan, Shelton said some of the Lincoln Highway route is marked with red, white and blue “L” signs, but unlike an interstate highway, it was cobbled together by connecting dozens of roads that already existed, making it more like a patchwork than a straight path. She said the highway “underwent four generations of road improvements, some of which changed the 1913 route to take it closer to populated areas.” So some of the people retracing the route took different paths this time. As an aside, I mentioned to her that the only two remaining original markers in DeKalb have been moved from the highway to private sites, one outside the Ellwood House Visitors

Yosemite fire rages closer to water source The ASSOCIATED PRESS TUOLUMNE CITY, Calif. – A raging wildfire in Yosemite National Park rained ash on the reservoir that is the chief source of San Francisco’s famously pure drinking water, and utility officials Monday scrambled to send more water toward the metropolitan area before it becomes tainted. Nearly 3,700 firefighters battled the approximately 230-square-mile blaze, the biggest wildfire on record in California’s Sierra Nevada. They reported modest progress, saying the fire was 15 percent contained. Utility officials monitored the clarity of the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir and used a massive new $4.6 billion gravity-operated pipeline system to move water quickly to reservoirs closer to the big city. The Hetch Hetchy supplies water to 2.6 million people in the San Francisco Bay area, 150 miles away. “We’re taking advantage that the water we’re receiving is still of good quality,” said Harlan Kelly Jr., general manager of the city’s Public Utilities Commission. “We’re bringing down as much water as possible and replenishing all of the local reservoirs.” At the same time, utility officials gave assurances that they have a sixmonth supply of water in reservoirs near the Bay area. So far the ash that has been raining onto the Hetch Hetchy has not sunk as far as the intake valves, which are about halfway down the 300-foot O’Shaugh-

A firefighter stands on top of a fire truck Monday at a campground destroyed by the Rim Fire near Yosemite National Park, Calif. Crews working to contain one of California’s largest wildfires gained some ground Monday against the flames threatening San Francisco’s water supply, several towns near Yosemite National Park and historic giant sequoias. nessy Dam. Utility officials said that the ash is nontoxic but that the city will begin filtering water for customers if problems are detected. That could cost more. On Monday the fire was still several miles away from the steep granite canyon where the reservoir is nestled, but several spot fires were burning closer, and firefighters were protecting hydroelectric transmission lines and other utility facilities.

“Obviously we’re paying close attention to the city’s water supply,” said Glen Stratton, an operations chief on the fire suppression team. Power generation at the reservoir was shut down last week so that firefighters would not be imperiled by live wires. San Francisco is buying replacement power from other sources to run City Hall and other municipal buildings.

8STATE BRIEFS Court sets arguments in Ill. concealed-carry case ST. LOUIS – A federal appeals court will hear arguments Oct. 3 over a push by gun rights advocates to let Illinois residents immediately tote firearms in public under the state’s fledgling concealed-carry law. Mary Shepard and the Illinois State Ri-

fle Association want the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to intervene after failing to sway a federal judge in East St. Louis to allow immediate concealed carry. Shepard and the rifle group consider that “foot-dragging.” The state counters the legal challenge is moot, and that the permitting process should be allowed to run its course.

Guards help escort Chicago kids to new schools on first day CHICAGO –Thousands of Chicago children whose schools were shuttered last spring walked to new ones on the first day of school Monday under the watchful eye of police officers and newly hired safety guards there to provide protection as the kids crossed unfamiliar streets –

On 16th birthday, Sycamore High junior enjoys his first solo flight By CHRIS BURROWS cburrows@shawmedia.com DeKALB – For most teenagers, 16th birthdays mean one thing: A driver’s license. Hunter Copp had a different priority. Instead of a trip to the DMV for his 16th, his parents took him to DeKalb Taylor Municipal Airport where he completed his first solo flight Monday. “That’s what he always wanted to do,” Hunter’s mom, Tanya Sharp, said. “He said, ‘On my 16th birthday, I want to solo.’ So that’s what he has worked for all this time.” Since he first started flying with an instructor about a year and a half ago, Copp, a junior at Sycamore High School, had been preparing for this day. But with sustained winds of over 10 mph and gusting to about 15, and the pressure of a crowd of supporters on hand to watch, it was up to flight instructor David Gillingham alone to decide whether Copp could take the controls alone. “This is a very stressful moment for a kid,” Gillingham said. “We’ve got parents, and friends and grandparents here ... and it’s my final call to say, ‘He’s got his game on today.’ ” With all eyes on him, Copp climbed into a Piper Cherokee

Warrior single-engine plane, and did a few landings and takeoffs with the instructor before getting the go-ahead from Gillingham to take flight on his own for the first time. “[Gillingham] told me before we took off first the first time, that he would have solo’d me two weeks ago except that I wasn’t 16 yet,” Copp said after touching down. “I couldn’t really believe that I was flying by myself. It’s unexplainable.” Copp, who already had spent 25 hours in the air, denies that nerves played any factor, but his parents couldn’t say the same for themselves. “I think I’m more nervous

than Hunter is,” Copp’s stepfather, Mike Sharp said. “ [Gillingham] has said he’s shut [the flight systems] down on [Copp], and Hunter just kind of does his thing. He’s like a machine. He flips the switches back on, and continues on.” Copp said he plans to continue on in the aviation industry but has no solid plans in place yet. Already though, his experiences have influenced his little sister Hannah to take up flying. “We figure he’ll get his license and take his little sister up and teach her how to fly too,” Mike Sharp said. “Two birds with one stone.”

Sue embodied all that is woman: Wife, friend, mommy, mom, yaya, grammy, gramma, housekeeper, telephone operator, all tasks she carried out with grace and determination. She added a spice into the mixture of life that will endure. Sue retired after more than 20 years as a telephone operator with Verizon Corp. Sue is survived by her husband of 46 years; the above mentioned five daughters; 11 grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren. Also left to carry on are five very special friends: Naomi Wagner of Brashear, Mo.; Elois Anthenat of DeKalb; Cheryl Eich of Rochelle; Marge Miller of DeKalb; and Helen Tande of Belvidere. Cremation was immediate, with no memorial service. Those who knew Sue love her still, and that is all that really matters. To sign the online guest book, visit www.legacy.com/daily-chronicle.

Johnson receives Republican nod for county clerk By FELIX SARVER fsarver@shawmedia.com DeKALB – The DeKalb County Republican Party wants Douglas Johnson to replace John Acardo as the county’s clerk and recorder. Johnson received more than 92 percent of the vote Sunday at the party caucus to nominate a candidate to finish Acardo’s term, which expires November 2014. Acardo announced July 31 that he was leaving office to work as the Douglas human resourc- Johnson es director for Kishwaukee College in Malta. Johnson has been on the DeKalb County Board of Review, which hears property tax assessment appeals and evaluates disability exemptions, for 10 years, DeKalb County Board Chairman Jeff Metzger said. Johnson also was a Sandwich police commissioner between 2003 and 2008 and a Sandwich School District 430 board member between 2000 and 2004. Johnson has owned a company called Tax Lien Investments for about 24 years,

Metzger said. On Sunday, precinct committeemen considered four candidates, said Metzger, who declined to reveal the other three candidates. Metzger said 38 out of 50 filled precincts were present for the vote. Metzger plans on forwarding the recommendation to the DeKalb County Executive Committee on Sept. 10. If committee members approve, the full DeKalb County Board will consider the appointment Sept. 18. Acardo’s last day as clerk and recorder will be Sept. 17. State law requires Acardo’s successor to be at least 18 years old and a member of the same political party he is, which is the Republican Party. Johnson thanked the Republican committee for its endorsement and that he will work hard as the county clerk and recorder, Metzger said in a news release. “Johnson hopes to make the transition to county clerk as smooth as possible upon approval from the County Board and is looking forward to working with the dedicated staff in the county clerk office,” Metzger said in a news release.

8BRIEFS Zion police end landfill hunt without finding baby ZION – Police in Zion ended their search of a landfill without finding the remains of a missing 5-month-old boy who they believe was smothered by his mother’s boyfriend, placed inside a backpack and tossed into a trash bin. The Zion Police Department posted an update on Facebook late Sunday, saying the searchers – some using cadaver dogs – had done “everything humanly possible” to recover the body of Joshua Summeries. They spent four

days combing through tons of trash with rakes and by hand.

Emotional testimony as jury weighs Hasan’s fate FORT HOOD, Texas – Survivors of the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood and relatives of those killed testified Monday during the final phase of Maj. Nidal Hasan’s trial. Prosecutors hope the emotional testimony helps convince jurors to impose a rare military death sentence on Hasan, who was convicted last week of killing 13 people and wounding more than 30 others at the Texas mili-

tary base. The sentencing phase also will be Hasan’s last chance to tell jurors what he’s spent the last four years telling the military, judges and journalists: that the killing of unarmed American soldiers preparing to deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan was necessary to protect Muslim insurgents. But whether he plans to address jurors remains unclear.

and victims of an alleged chemical weapons attack Monday following a treacherous journey through government and rebel-held territory, where their convoy was hit by snipers. As U.S. officials said there was very little doubt that Syria used chemical weapons and Western powers stepped up calls for swift military action, President Bashar Assad’s government vowed to defend itself against any international attack, warning that such an intervention would ignite turmoil across the region.

Mayor prefers to see housing group unchanged for now • COUNCIL Continued from page A1 Rental Association, said at the meeting. “Do you call the code department? Or do you think, ‘Oh, I call crime-free housing?’ That’s what it boils down to.” Heinisch and others believe code enforcement should remain under the authority of the Public Works Department, so that Leoni can focus on fighting crime

and building relationships. “Code issues, such as property maintenance, need to be in the code department; crime issues need to be in the police department, and that’s why there needs to be a separation of those two responsibilities,” he said. Others on the council disagree, saying that the Crime Free Housing Program, which has been active since February, hasn’t been around long enough to show what it’s capable of.

“These people should have been employed and out in streets, in my opinion, back in April or May and doing the work that we intended for them to do,” 5th Ward Alderman Ron Naylor said. “Let it go for six months or a year, and see how it works. I don’t see why we’re moving this back and forth.” Mayor John Rey seemed to take the same wait-and-see position, but wouldn’t speculate on whether the majority of the council sees it that

way. “My view, it appears to be switching horses in the middle of the stream,” Rey said after the meeting. “We’re in the process of recruiting a new city manager. ... During this interim, I would prefer to see the [Crime Free Housing Program] remain as currently intended, and then once we get a city manager seated, over a six- to 12-month period, do an evaluation of the performance of that department.”

Former students who come back to teach bring sense of history • COLLEAGUES Continued from page A1 Nicholson figured she was lucky to get a job with Genoa-Kingston High School when she started there eight years ago. “I feel very strongly that it is important to give back to your community,” Nicholson said. Chris Judkins, a first-year math teacher at DeKalb High School, attended school there between 2000 and 2004. One teacher who inspired him to lead a classroom of his own was his mom, who teaches

at Clinton Rosette Middle School. Another math teacher was T.J. Fontana, whose teaching style and enthusiasm Judkins appreciated. Now that he’s a teacher at the same school as Fontana, he gets to see how intelligent he is outside of the classroom. “I guess as a student, teachers [seem] kind of like robots, and now I get to see that other side, which I think is cool,” Judkins said. Meanwhile, numerous products of Sycamore School District 427 are teaching there, including three in the English department, said Rich Majerus, the high

school’s English Department chairman. One of them is 30-year-old Ben Doty, a 2001 Sycamore High grad. After attending Winona State University in Minnesota, Doty landed a job at Sycamore Middle School in 2006. Doty remembers Majerus’ positive influence on students and strong storytelling abilities, and tries to emulate some of them. “It kind of stands out and says a lot about the community and school district that students want to come back and live here and collaborate with their old teachers,” he

said. Majerus said former students who return as new teachers bring with them an established sense of history with the district. They know the atmosphere and curriculum already, he said. “They bring that history along with new ideas and new objectives and goals,” Majerus said. Majerus finds it gratifying as well. He had no trouble adjusting to working alongside Doty when he became a teacher, because he admired him as a student. “It’s not something teachers see all that often,” he said.

Downtown businesses hope Corn Fest a boon By CHRIS BURROWS cburrows@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Dorothy Clucas hopes that festival-goers keep the party alive in downtown DeKalb even after Corn Fest closes its doors Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Clucas is the service manager at O’Leary’s Restaurant and Pub and believes that Corn Fest brings longand short-term benefits to businesses like hers when it takes place among them. “When it was here in the past, the restaurant, the downtown is packed,” Clucas said. “People go into every restaurant, every business. ... The biggest thing is bringing people that aren’t from DeKalb to the downtown area, so that when they come back they’re like, ‘Oh, remember O’Leary’s? Let’s go there.’ ” For the past five years, the annual festival of music, carnival rides, food and drink was housed at the DeKalb Taylor Municipal Airport, but O’Leary’s and many other down-

town businesses are hopeful that its return to the downtown area will be a boon. “There’s just more of a sense of community when it’s right downtown,” Katie Gardner, a manager at Tapa La Luna, said. “It just has more of a hometown feel. We’re hoping that it attracts business, but it’s just going to be really good for the town.” O’Leary’s and Tapa La Luna won’t have to deal with the main stage and beer garden area, which Corn Fest organizers plan to place near Locust and Second streets, but businesses located near there range from hopeful to downright pleased to have Corn Fest back. “We’re glad to see it come back to where it originally started,” Todd Hendrey, co-owner of DeKalb Confectionary at Locust and Second, said. “It turns a good weekend into a great weekend.” Mary Wilson has owned Hillside Restaurant on Second Street just north of Lincoln Highway since 1988 and she managed it before then,

so she’s seen it all. Wilson thinks changes in the timing and in the setup of the event – further north of her restaurant’s outdoor patio – could prove positive. “They used to put the entertainment here, and it would blare. You couldn’t even take an order,” Wilson said. “Now it’s on Locust [Street] facing east, so that’ll be great. It may be a better experience, so we’re being optimistic and positive about it.” The owners of Cassie’s Popcorn were told that they’d have to relocate from the corner of Locust and Second, a spot that their trailer has occupied since May this year and for many months in 2012, but they took the news in stride, and have decided to move elsewhere in the downtown area for the weekend. “It’s OK. I think we’re going to get more of the general public moving up town,” co-owner Troy Oltman said. “We think we’ll get more families in that area than staying here by the beer garden.”

Chris Burrows – cburrows@shawmedia.com

Cassie’s Popcorn Stand, pictured here at its normal location at Locust and Second streets, will have to relocate in the downtown DeKalb area during Corn Fest, but the owners think it will be a good weekend for their business regardless.

Fall projects keep DeKalb County tourism thriving On Sept. 8, DeKalb County will welcome visitors and community members to the DeKalb Kite Fest for the eighth consecutive year. The DeKalb County Convention and Visitors Bureau hosts the event led by Chairman Doug Nelson. He has chaired Kite Fest since 2008 and has helped turn the event into one of the most anticipated festivals in DeKalb County. Community support, Northern Illinois University volunteers and our sponsors allow us to continue this event. Volunteers are still needed for two-hour shifts between 9:30 a.m. and 5:30

DCCVB VIEW Debbie Armstrong p.m. To volunteer, email darmstrong@dekalbcountycvb.com. Kite Fest will take place on the NIU campus on the open field known as the “North 40” at the corner of Lucinda Avenue and Kishwaukee Drive. Hours are from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Kites, food and ice cream treats will be available for sale. Local nonprofits will provide activities for children, including kite-making and a kid candy drop. Admission is

free. VIP parking is available for $3 a car. For more details, visit dekalbcountycvb.com or search DeKalbKiteFest on Facebook. Kite Fest is just one of the many fun fall events to enjoy in DeKalb County. For a complete list of festivals and events, visit dekalbcountycvb.com.

Volunteers needed In fewer than 100 days DeKalb County will host the 2013 IHSA State Football Championships on Nov. 29 and 30. The IHSA Destination DeKalb Committee, chaired by Tom Matya, and the

DCCVB are busy planning to welcome the anticipated 32,000 visitors to our community hospitality area, which has been named Spirit Zone. It will consist of the main community hospitality tent and eight other team tents that will be provided for the fans of the teams playing each day in the finals. There also will be a performance area for the bands and cheer groups to help pump up the fans before the games. Fans will compete in a Spirit Zone tent decorating contest with plaques awarded to the winning team’s fans by our community judges. We need more volunteers

to help with both the game day operations and the hospitality tent. All DeKalb County residents can get involved to ensure that we host a firstclass experience for the IHSA, coaches, teams and fans who will visit Huskie Stadium. Volunteers will be treated to a complimentary ticket to a Huskie football game when they report for training Oct. 26. Additional training may be provided at two other NIU home football games to help accommodate all volunteers’ schedules. All the details regarding volunteering and training are provided at ihsadestinationdekalb.com.

Sixteen teams will compete. Eight teams play each day with the games scheduled to kick off at 10 a.m. and 2, 4 and 7 p.m. on both Nov. 29 and 30. It will definitely be the place to be Thanksgiving weekend. This event will likely generate between $800,000 and $1 million for the local economy. That is a big economic boost and demonstrates the importance of hosting a successful event and experience for our visitors from across the state.

8LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Don’t prejudge ‘Obamacare’ but I believe that will be a small To the Editor: For many reasons, I feel compelled to take issue with Earl Gable’s Aug. 24 letter about Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act). I believe that someone of my grandfather’s age might have written almost the same letter as Medicare was about to be implemented. I believe Earl is just as unnecessarily concerned now as my grandfather’s peers would have been then. As a health insurance agent, I am very optimistic about Obamacare. Yes, my income may decrease,

price to pay for the benefits that so many Americans will realize. All too often, I hear stories of individuals who are in dire financial straits through no fault of their own because they can’t get health insurance due to pre-existing conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, kidney failure, cancer, heart attack, etc. Yes, the jury is still out on the cost of coverage. Nobody knows what the resolution will be in this regard. But early indications in New York suggest that premiums

actually will decrease. Finally, I think we should be focused on the positive side of Obamacare. Think about the literally millions of individuals who until now could not get health insurance. Think about the young people who can still be on their parents’ policy instead of self-insuring and risking financial disaster. Think about the preventive and wellness care provisions that already are in place. Think about those individuals who won’t have to worry that their insurance will be canceled or that their premiums will go sky high because

they became sick. Think about operating restrictions placed on health insurance companies that are forcing them to direct more of our premiums toward paying benefits. Think about the millions in tax credits to small businesses with under 25 employees to help offset the cost of buying health insurance for their employees. Think about the seniors who soon will not have to worry about the “doughnut hole” factor. Sorry, Earl, I think you are on the wrong side of history. John Knepper Sycamore

FDR offers lessons on getting things done Evidence of the astonishing incompetence of the Obama administration continues to roll in. It started with the stimulus package. A third of the money went to public employee union members – a political payoff not very stimulating to anyone else. Billions went to green energy loans, like the $500 million that the government lost in backing the obviously hapless Solyndra. Then there’s Obamacare. Barack Obama has already said the administration will not enforce the employer mandate, will not verify eligibility for insurance subsidies and will not require employer-provided policies to cap employees’ out-of-pocket costs. The Constitution’s requirement that the president take care to faithfully execute the laws apparently does not apply. Obamacare administrators continue to miss deadlines set by the health care law – 41 of 82 of them, according to Forbes’ Avik Roy’s reading of Congressional Research Service report. Then there’s the Dodd-Frank financial regulation law. According to the law firm Davis Polk, the administration as of July had missed 62 percent of the deadlines in

VIEWS Michael Barone that law. All of which indicates incompetence in drafting or in implementing the legislation – likely both. We have a president who delights in delivering partisan speeches to adoring audiences but doesn’t seem interested in whether his administration gets results. But I blame someone else, someone who has been dead these past 68 years. I blame Franklin D. Roosevelt. I blame Roosevelt for making big government look easy – and politically rewarding. He set an example that most of his successors – Obama is just the latest – have a hard time duplicating. Roosevelt certainly had his defects. As his best and generally admiring biographer Conrad Black notes, he was devious, largely ignorant of economics, cruel to subordinates, vacillating on many issues. But he had a great gift for picking the right person for the right job – if he

thought the job was important. FDR’s knack for choosing the right person for important jobs resulted from some unknowable combination of knowledge and intuition. It also showed an overriding concern for getting results. It’s not clear that Barack Obama shares that determination. In his defense, he has made some high-quality appointments, and Roosevelt’s administrators did not face today’s tangle of legalistic requirements and environmental restrictions. But New Deal legislation tended to run dozens of pages rather than thousands. And some unworkable laws were overturned by the Supreme Court. Roosevelt’s example shines through history. But Obama’s continuing stumbles show that it’s a hard – and politically damaging – example to follow. Big government these days is harder than FDR made it look.

Obama’s inaction on Syria a stain on his legacy By JENNIFER RUBIN The Washington Post There is no bigger contrast in foreign policy these days than the magnitude of the catastrophe in Syria and the U.S. response. Obama’s cringe-worthy behavior was on full display last week. Faced with the greatest atrocities since the Bosnian war, he told CNN that he finds Syria’s mass murder of civilians by chemical weapons to be “troublesome.” So far he hasn’t been sufficiently troubled by the 100,000 dead in that country’s war to do anything of consequence. Then he played lawyer, asserting that “international law” prevents the United States from acting except under the umbrella of the United Nations: “When we take action, there are rules of international

law, and if the U.S. goes in and attacks another country without a U.N. mandate and without clear evidence being presented, then there are questions in terms of whether the international law supports it.” Never mind that the legal standard he propounded (“clear evidence”) was invented out of whole cloth. Clear evidence was presented months ago; in fact, the U.S. confirmed the use of chemical weapons. The president might chat with former President Bill Clinton about the United States’ ability to act in its own national self-interest when strategic and humanitarian concerns demand it. Reports suggest that Washington is formulating options for military action against the Syrian regime, despite the absurd warnings of Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that

a force akin to the Normandy invasion would be required. We suspect that, if action is taken, it will be well short of what is needed to end the conflict and to protect civilians. Obama has never fully understood the centrality of the U.S. to preserving international stability and preventing mass horrors. His entire scheme of “leading from behind” and deferring to international bodies is designed to refute the idea that the United States must lead, sometimes on its own, in order to prevent great evil. The gassing and mass slaughter of civilians in Syria amounts to a gruesome and definitive repudiation of Obama’s mind-set. His failure to prevent the horrors of the past two years will be a stain on his reputation, and it marks a historical low point in U.S. foreign policy

Those who drink shouldn’t drive. That holds true whether it’s behind the wheel of a vehicle on land or water. And those who do should expect to pay a price for putting personal fun ahead of the safety of others. A proposal making its way through the Illinois General Assembly would suspend for three months the driver’s license of a person caught operating a boat while intoxicated. It’s a fair consequence for those who care so little about others. The legal alcohol limit for driving is For the record a blood-alcohol level of 0.08. At that point, the Centers for Those who drink Disease Control and Preven- shouldn’t drive. That holds tion says a person’s muscle true whether it’s behind the coordination becomes poor, wheel of a vehicle on land and judgment, self-control, or water. reasoning and memory are impaired. If that person gets behind the wheel of a car, it can lead to problems with speed control, impaired perception and a difficult time processing information, such as seeing traffic signals in time. And that’s on a flat roadway, with designated lanes and traffic signals. If an accident occurs, there’s a reasonable expectation that help can quickly arrive and other motorists could easily assist. Now make that scenario operating a boat instead of a vehicle. It could be on choppy water with few signals to obey. An accident on a waterway will take longer for authorities to reach, and you throw in the added risk of someone drowning while you wait for help to arrive. State Sen. Julie Morrison, D-Deerfield, has a personal interest in sponsoring the legislation: Her nephew, Tony Borcia, was killed in July 2012 while riding an inner tube pulled by a boat on Petite Lake. He fell off and was struck by a boat operated by David Hatyina, a Bartlett man serving 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Although the effort started as something personal, Morrison said she hopes to change the culture, shifting how people view operating a boat under the influence. The measure will be discussed from 1 to 3 p.m. Aug. 29 at a public hearing at the Lake County Central Permit Facility in Libertyville. Not everyone is a fan of the proposal – a common reaction when it comes to legislation that takes aim at people’s actions. But our society always has placed limits when the personal behavior of one could negatively affect others. Asking a boater to operate his or her craft while sober is hardly asking too much.

Feds fighting for franchise In the latest battle in the war over voting rights, the Justice Department announced Thursday its plans to sue Texas over its strict voter identification law, a decision that comes just weeks after Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. also promised to challenge the state’s redistricting plan. States like Texas with particular histories of racial discrimination at the polls had been required to “preclear” proposed changes to voting practices. Federal courts had blocked both of these laws under that preclearance regime last summer, citing the disproportionate impact they would likely have on poor and minority voters. Then the Supreme Court in June invalidated the Voting Rights Act’s Section 5, and Texas wasted no time in charging ahead with both. As devastating as the Court’s ruling was for the federal government’s ability to protect the franchise, significant portions of the Voting Rights Act still stand. Holder plans to challenge both of Texas’ proposed laws – and, presumably, others like them that have recently passed in other states – in a circuitous route through the portions of the Act that remain. In his words: “We will not allow the Supreme Court’s recent decision to be interpreted as open season for states to pursue measures that suppress voting rights.” It’s good to see the Justice Department so emphatically oppose laws that would check minority rights. Unfortunately, fighting them is far easier said than done. Without the preclearance requirement, the Justice Department will have to rely on the Voting Rights Act’s Section 2, which prohibits measures “adopted with the purpose, and will have the result, of denying or abridging the right to vote on account of race, color or membership in a language minority group.” Ultimately, the ideal solution to this problem is for Congress to update the act. That way, the Justice Department wouldn’t have to fight laws like the one in Texas on a case-by-case basis. As the 50th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington draws near, surely even this Congress can recognize the importance of taking substantive action. The franchise isn’t a partisan issue. As we celebrate the achievements of the civil rights movement, we shouldn’t have to mourn the death of one its most significant and necessary achievements. The Washington Post

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. – U.S. Bill of Rights, First Amendment

8MORNING KICKOFF

NIU MEN’S BASKETBALL

Threloff eligible to play immediately AP file photo

McGrady announces retirement from NBA Those sleepy eyes always betrayed Tracy McGrady. Whether he was pouring in 13 points in 35 seconds for Houston in 2004 or sitting on the bench and watching the San Antonio Spurs win another playoff game in June without needing him, that cool expression rarely changed. It all looked almost too easy for McGrady (above), even if it rarely was. McGrady announced his retirement from the NBA on Monday, ending a 16-year career that included two scoring titles, seven All-Star appearances, injuries to his knee and back and zero playoff series wins while he was leading the way. The straight-from-high school project who blossomed into a dominant, two-way superstar will always be remembered, too, as a player who struggled with injuries. “Thank all of you who have supported me over 16 NBA seasons, 7 All-Stars, and countless exciting moments,” McGrady tweeted on Monday morning. “Retiring from NBA. Stay tuned.” McGrady didn’t rule out continuing his career overseas, perhaps in China where he played last season. “Officially retired from the NBA,” he said on ESPN. “Door’s still open.” McGrady was drafted by Toronto out of high school in 1997 and was outshined early in his career by Raptors star Vince Carter, McGrady’s distant cousin. He became a star in Orlando, was traded to Houston in 2004 and also played for the Knicks, Pistons and Hawks before finishing up his career with the Spurs last season. He averaged 19.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.4 assists a game in his career and at one point was considered one of the best perimeter players of his generation, a talent that rivaled Kobe Bryant and any other player in the league.

DeKalb graduate granted NCAA hardship waiver By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com Northern Illinois junior center and former DeKalb High School star Jordan Threloff has been granted the NCAA’s hardship waiver be-

cause of family reasons, and will be eligible to play for the men’s basketball team this season, NIU confirmed Monday. The 6-foot-10 Threloff transferred to NIU from Illinois State this past spring. He averaged 2.5 points a game and 1.8 rebounds a contest in 21 games as a sophomore for the Redbirds in 2012-13, after scoring 3.2 points a game and averaging 3.3 rebounds in 30 games as a redshirt freshman in 2011-12. “We are grateful that the NCAA has granted Jordan’s re-

quest,” NIU head coach Mark Montgomery said in a news release. “I am excited that Jordan will be able to participate fully with us this season and look forJordan Threloff ward to having his experience and physical presence on the floor.” As a senior for DeKalb’s regional championship team in 2009-10, Threloff averaged 18.6

points and 12.4 rebounds, and was named Daily Chronicle Boys Basketball Player of the Year. If the NCAA waiver wasn’t granted, Threloff would have had to sit out this season because of NCAA transfer rules, and would have just one year of eligibility remaining, having already used his redshirt season at Illinois State in 201011. He brings much-needed size to NIU, something that was a weakness for Montgomery’s

team last year. The Huskies often had players like Abdel Nader (who has since transferred to Iowa State), and Keith and Kevin Gray playing out of position. NIU finished the season 5-25 (3-13 MAC) and was eliminated by Eastern Michigan in the first round of the MAC Tournament. Threloff gives the Huskies a big body up front, and NIU will also have the services of 6-11 center Pete Rakocevic, who sat out last season after transferring from Sacramento State.

BOYS SOCCER SEASON PREVIEW

Another Royal run?

Fleck’s debut awaits By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com

Rob Winner – rwinner@shawmedia.com

Hinckley-Big Rock sophomore Jack Bullard participates in a drill during soccer practice Aug. 20 at Hinckley-Big Rock. H-BR boys soccer coach Paul Taeuber said Bullard has the potential to put up 20 goals and 20 assists this season.

Taeuber hopes H-BR can take similar path in postseason By ANTHONY ZILIS sports@daily-chronicle.com Hinckley-Big Rock boys soccer coach Paul Taeuber hesitates to put one group of players above another, but last year’s senior class was undeniably special. That class of Royals, which included two-time Daily Chronicle Player of the Year Bernie Conley, scored 111 of H-BR’s 130 goals last season on their way to a third-place finish in Class 1A, just a year after a run to the supersectionals. Taeuber also coached that group on the sophomore basketball team before he left that post. “I like to think that every group I have, I feel that way,” Taeuber said. “Maybe with them, I feel it more because

of that time with them, the supersectional and going to state and being around each other, and coaching the majority of them in basketball as freshmen and sophomores. It’s different, I knew it would be different. … everything worked out last year and it was a great year. It’s definitely different.” And while expectations would seem to lower after such a class graduates, Taeuber has seen his team succeed when it’s not necessarily expected. In 2011, the Royals were coming off a successful season in which they bowed out of the playoffs in the regional championship to Stillman Valley, a team they had beaten earlier in the year.

KANELAND’S DREW DAVID

Coming Wednesday

Western Michigan head coach P.J. Fleck will get his first taste of being a head coach Friday. It won’t exactly be an easy debut for the former Northern Illinois wide receiver and assistant coach, who was hired by the Broncos in December. Western Michigan heads up to East Lansing, Mich., to play Michigan State. Fleck, a Kaneland graduate, will also be coaching against Spartans defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi, who was NIU’s linebackers coach from 2000 to 2002. “They’re one of the best defenses that I’ve actually had to game plan against through my time in college football. They are extremely experienced. They play their tail ends off with Pat Narduzzi,” Fleck said on the Mid-American Conference weekly coaches teleconference. “They’re where we want to get to.” It’s the start of a brutal nonconference schedule for Fleck. After Nicholls State in Week 2, the Broncos head to Northwestern Sept. 14, and will play Sept 21 at Iowa. Fleck isn’t complaining about the tough slate.

Barbs finish second at invite By LUKE SRODULSKI lsrodulski@shawmedia.com While many teams left Monday’s Kishwaukee Invite frustrated about the difficulty of the course, DeKalb’s home-course advantage left them satisfied with their second-place performance.

The Barbs finished second at the Kishwaukee Central, who also scored a 314. Geneva won the invitaInvite.

tional with a 311, but the consistency throughout DeKalb’s scores pleased coach John Cordes. “We were pretty solid from top to bottom, so for a team that’s got as little experience as our team, that’s a pretty big confidence booster,” Cordes said. Burlington Central’s Matt Weber (an Indiana recruit) had far and away the best score of the day with a 1-under 69, and Freeman tied for second place behind him. DeKalb’s Jacob Cook and Rob-

by Bishop finished with scores of 78 and 79, respectively. Freeman was quick to point out his mistakes, but he also acknowledged what helped him to such a solid performance. “I missed quite a few putts, but I hit a lot of greens and made a couple birdies to get back in it,” Freeman said. “[My familiarity with the course] helped me out with my tee shots and knowing where to go on the course.”

Long could’ve had a future in MLB LAKE FOREST – As a kid, Kyle Long dreamed of becoming a baseball player. His father, Howie, had been a Hall of Fame defensive end with the Oakland Raiders. His older brother, Chris, was determined to follow suit as a football star. Not Kyle, though. Kyle was going to be a baseball player. His favorite team was the Boston Red Sox, who won the World Series in 2004 and won it again in 2007. His heroes included Jonathan Papelbon, the fiery closer, and Dustin Pedroia, the goofball second baseman with a short frame and big heart. “And Big Papi,” Long said. “Obviously.” Yes, and Big Papi. Obviously. If things had turned out differently – which is to say, if Long had made better decisions as a college freshman – it’s possible that he could have played with or against David Ortiz and the rest of his Red Sox heroes. He could have climbed the pitcher’s mound, peered in for the catcher’s signal, and hummed a mid-90s fastball over the inside corner. In fact, Long is sure of it. “I think I’d be playing in the Major Leagues right now,” Long said. “But it just didn’t work out. So I’m in the other Major Leagues.” That would be the NFL. Long, 24, is here for a lot of reasons, most of which are positive. He is a tena-

VIEWS Tom Musick cious, athletically gifted and hard-working offensive lineman whom the Bears selected with their first-round pick (No. 20 overall) despite his relative lack of football experience. Since joining the Bears, all Long has done is seize the starting position at right guard. Head coach Marc Trestman has yet to formally announce Long as a starter heading into the regular season, but that moment is coming sooner rather than later. In front of Long lies a promising NFL career. Behind him sits an abandoned baseball past and questions about what might have been. Rewind to the summer of 2008. Before the late-night partying, before the failed classes, before the 2 a.m. traffic stop and the DWI charge. Long was a rising star on the diamond, a 6-foot-6-inch southpaw with big league stuff. He committed to pitch for Florida State, one of the nation’s top baseball programs, after earning all-state honors in Virginia as a high school sophomore, junior and senior. The White Sox selected Long out of high school anyway, using a 23rd round

pick in 2008 with the hope that they might be able to lure him to turn pro. But Long honored his commitment to the Seminoles, where he could have blossomed into a terrific prospect. Want a scouting report on Long the pitcher? Ask Long the offensive lineman. “Somebody who doesn’t have a lot of control on the mound, but has good velocity on his fastball,” Long said. “Somebody who wants to challenge hitters with the heat. Also has a slider. Does not have a change-up.” Well, technically, Long had a change-up. “A really undeveloped change-up,” Long said. These days, Long is developing a much different skill set as an offensive lineman with power and perspective. He dropped out of Florida State before appearing in a game, and the humbled son of a famous father reinvented himself as a football player at Saddleback Community College in Mission Viejo, Calif., before transferring to Oregon. None of Long’s baseball experiences could have prepared him for this. “They’re two opposite games,” Long said. “I’ve had to forget a lot of the stuff that I learned in baseball in terms of applying it to football. You need to be so wired and aggressive in this game, and it’s the opposite in that game.” At least a couple of Long’s

teammates were surprised to hear about his baseball life. “It would be tough to imagine him standing on a pitcher’s mound,” said Matt Slauson, the Bears’ starting left guard. “I mean, he’s a big dude. Usually, pitchers are kind of lanky, flexible type of guys, and he’s all muscle-bound. It would be weird.” Fellow offensive lineman Eben Britton smiled at the idea of Long as a pitcher. “Is that what position he played?” Britton said. “At, what is he, 6-5, 325 pounds?” Basically. “Yeah, sure,” Britton said with a shrug. “Kyle’s a great athlete. I’m sure he could do it.” Long did it. Unless asked, he doesn’t talk about baseball much. He doesn’t watch it much, either. “It’s hard for me to watch,” Long said. “Not because it’s not fun to watch. Just because I was so close. I was so invested into playing baseball, and then things didn’t work out. “So I worry about what’s on my plate. That’s it.” His plate is full. His football future is bright. “I look back on it sometimes,” Long said. “But I’m in a pretty amazing spot right now.”

BEARS NOTES

Cleveland may play starters in preseason game By KEVIN FISHBAIN kfishbain@shawmedia.com LAKE FOREST – While it’s clear how the Bears feel about the fourth preseason game, their opponent may pull out a few more stops. Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski told Cleveland. com that he is considering playing his starters in Thursday night’s preseason finale at Soldier Field. “We’re going to approach this next game that those guys are going to play. And then I’ll make that determination later in the week as it goes on,” Chudzinski said. The Browns lost, 27-6, in their third preseason game against the Colts. Their offense never got to the red zone.

The Bears are starting Jordan Palmer at quarterback, who will be followed by Trent Edwards. Josh McCown and Jay Cutler are taking the night off, along with most of the starters, head coach Marc Trestman confirmed. “I wouldn’t say all, but it’ll be close to all of the starters,” he said about those resting on Thursday. “There’s always going to be things that happen later in the week because of injuries and things like that that we may have to play some guys, but our hope is most if not all will be held out of the game.” With the Browns potentially playing some of their first-teamers, that could affect the Bears’ staff’s evaluation of its fringe roster players, but Trestman said that it could ac-

tually be beneficial. “I think you can turn it into a positive,” he said about the possibility of facing Browns starters. “It gives them an opportunity to play against some of the better players and see how they match up competition wise and it creates more value for them competitively speaking and throughout the league, so I don’t think it’s a bad thing.” Injury update: Trestman said that Henry Melton has begun running as he continues to recover from a concussion. Earl Bennett is still day-today. D.J. Williams (calf) also remains day-to-day, but was seen stretching in the portion of practice open to the media. Harvey Unga, Patrick Mannelly and Cheta Ozougwu all re-

turned to practice, while Jonathan Scott, Corvey Irvin, J.T. Thomas and Zack Bowman sat out Monday. Fendi’s struggles: Tight end Fendi Onobun had two more drops in Friday night’s preseason game and is clearly on the roster bubble, but Trestman said his play in games is not indicative of his full preseason. “Fendi Onobun has had a very good camp and has been uncharacteristically inconsistent in the games,” Trestman said, adding, “We’re all pulling for him both in the locker room and on the field that he will continue to progress and get through this kind of little batting slump that he has been during the games that we really haven’t seen during practice.”

Hinckley-Big Rock boys golf defeats IMSA sports@daily-chronicle.com Hinckley-Big Rock boys golf defeated IMSA, 194-195, in the Royals’ first dual meet of the season Monday at Hughes Creek Golf Club in Elburn. The Royals were led by senior Tyler Runge, who shot a 46 and junior Daniel Small, who shot a 48. Junior Hunter Seierstad (49) and senior Luke Bish (51) also figured in the scoring for H-BR. “Overall a good meet and I’m proud we got the victory at our first 9-hole event,” H-BR coach Kyle Donka said.

BOYS SOCCER H-BR wins opener: Hinckley-Big Rock boys soccer defeated Rochelle, 2-1, in its home and season opener.

The Royals led, 1-0, at the half on a penalty kick by Jack Bullard and won on a penalty kick by Jeremy Perales with just more than seven minutes left in the game. Jason Bohannon was in net for the Royals (1-0).

Somonauk defeats Genoa-Kingston: Somonauk won its season opener, 7-1, at home against Genoa-Kingston (0-1). William Crozier scored G-K’s lone goal in the second and was assisted by Uriel Ortega. “We made a lot of mistakes, but now we know what we have to improve upon,” G-K coach Randy Tate said. “Hopefully, we will get things worked out and corrected early in the season.” Tommy Skupian, Josh Schmitt and Jacob Kenyan each had two goals for the Bobcats.

GIRLS TENNIS Kaneland upends West Chicago: Kaneland won its home dual meet against West Chicago, 6-1. Sammie Schrepferman and Stephanie Karoleweicz each recorded straight-sets wins in singles while Kaneland swept all four doubles matches. Madi Jurcenko and Jelly Emmanouil won at No. 1 doubles, 6-0, 6-0, while Stephanie Zwick and Kaylee Shoaff won, 6-1, 6-1 at No. 2 doubles.

GIRLS GOLF H-BR beats ACC: Hinckley-Big Rock defeated Aurora Central Catholic, 208-222, in a dual meet at Phillips Park in Aurora. The Royals were led by senior McRaye Scheller’s 48 while seniors Caitlyn Fecht

and Kim Weissinger posted 52 and 53 respectively. Junior Taylor Prellberg (55) also figured in the scoring for H-BR. “Our seniors are putting the team in a position to compete,” H-BR coach Greg Jourdan said. “Scheller and Fecht played a solid round on a great course, and first-year player Weissinger should continue to lower her scores with more experience.”

VOLLEYBALL Yorkville downs Sandwich: Yorkville defeated Sandwich, 25-12, 25-6, on Monday. Stephanie Sanchez had five digs while Kylie Knur recorded three kills for the Indians.

Hiawatha falls to Paw Paw: Hiawatha lost to Paw Paw, 2519, 25-7, in a home match.

placement. “I am very pleased with my team, because at about the halfway mark, I had only heard that they weren’t doing very well,” Cordes said. “At that point, you remind them that it’s 18 holes and to hang in there, and they did.” Indian Creek finished in 10th, led by an 88 from sophomore Peyton Gatz. Sycamore ended up in eighth, paced by senior Ryan Aurand’s 82. Spartans assistant coach

Dan Wheeler, who was filling in for head coach Dave Burdick, said Aurand’s performance as key to their placement, but he was mainly happy with the team overall. It is a very young group, and in unfamiliar territory, he thought that they responded well. “For many of the guys, being their first time playing this course, which is very different from our home course,” Wheeler said. “Given that, I thought they did a nice job.”

Home-course advantage flips today when DeKalb heads to Sycamore for the Northern Illinois Big 12 East Conference opener. Even with the performance of his team Monday, Cordes still sees room for improvement. “If we can start to get rid of the bigger scores, the plus-bogey holes, it makes you feel so much better and so much more confident,” Cordes said. “That’s where we need to get better going forward.”

HAVANA – An official Cuban newspaper said star first baseman Jose Dariel Abreu has defected to try to play in Major League Baseball. The weekly Trabajadores newspaper reported Abreu departed Cuba “illegally and silently” for a Caribbean nation, most likely Haiti or the Dominican Republic. The 26-year-old Abreu played in all six games for Cuba in the World Baseball Classic in March, hitting .383 with three home runs and nine RBIs. Abreu is the fourth Cuban player to defect in the past two months, adding to the departures of first baseman Yozzen Cuesta, and pitchers Misael Siveiro and Odrisamer Despaigne. Cuban defectors Yoenis Cespedes and Yasiel Puig have recently signed multimillion dollar contracts to play in MLB.

Kaneland soccer’s Parillo draws preseason plaudits Morrow on the move: Angie Morrow, one of the area’s top softball players, has transferred from Burlington Central to Kaneland, her father, Bill Morrow, confirmed. Morrow, a junior who already has committed to Wisconsin, missed her entire sophomore season with a shoulder injury. Morrow projects as a major addition for a Kaneland team that went 23-4 in the spring but was upset by Rosary in a 3A regional final.

Geneva product Pat Schiller and Martel Moore share more than just Northern Illinois ties as they vie for spots on the Atlanta Falcons’ 53-man roster. Both former Huskies are undrafted free agents. Schiller, a linebacker, signed in 2012 and eventually landed on the practice squad. Moore, NIU’s leading receiver during its Orange Bowl run last season, joined the Falcons in April, paving the way to a reunion with Schiller. “I was able to be around Martel for a long time, so I know him pretty well, and am trying to take him under my wing as much as possible here, you know,” Schiller said. “Any way I can to try to help him out

Kaneland midfielder Anthony Parillo keeps telling his father and coach, Scott, that all he wants to do is have a fun senior boys soccer season. Thanks to recent recognition from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, Parillo’s high school swan song has the potential to be far more.

BOYS SOCCER SEASON PREVIEW CAPSULES DeKALB Coach: Brent McIntosh (13th season) 2012 record: 12-3-5, 8-1-1 Northern Illinois Big 12 East; lost 3-1 in Class 3A Regional final Key returners: Sean Woodford, Sr; Logan Brown, Sr.; Trevor Freeland, Jr.; Owen Sawyer, Sr.; Eric Ngum, Sr.; Owen Smith, Jr.; Skyler Weishaar, Sr. Key newcomers: Dylan Hottsmith, Sr.; Akim Suraji, Sr.; Alex Vaughn-Low, Jr.; Brandon Canaday, Jr.; Jared Smith, Jr. Outlook: Woodford, a Daily Chronicle All-Area first-teamer last year, will lead DeKalb as it looks to defend its NI Big 12 East title. A deep playoff run eluded the Barbs last year in a difficult Class 3A bracket, but they return enough talent to compete for a regional title.

GENOA-KINGSTON Coach: Randy Tate (seventh season) 2012 record: 15-7-1, 6-5-1 Big Northern Conference; lost in Class 1A Sectional final Key returners: Uriel Ortega, Sr.; Cris Beltran, Sr.; William Crozier, Sr.; Danny Hansen, Sr.; Erik Tomlinson, Jr.; Cody Rice, Jr.; Tommy Hansen, So.; Juan Lechuga, So.; Bobby Nay, Jr.; Matthew Cieslica, Jr.; Andrew Caldwell, So. Outlook: After winning a regional title last year, the Cogs will have to replace two of their top goalscorers, Devon Tijerina and Chris Camargo. But the Cogs have plenty returning to make a strong run in the Big Northern Conference after a successful 2012. Tate’s take: “We have plenty of scoring potential and will be looking for scoring to come from several players. We experienced a deeper run in the post season last year and the boys are hungry to push that experience even deeper late in the season, but we are concentrating on one day at a time.”

HIAWATHA Coach: Kyle Monestero (fourth season) 2012 record: 9-9, 4-3 Little Ten Conference, lost in Class 1A Regional final Key returners: Gage Grant; Sr.; Justin Smith, Sr.; Taylor Edwards, Sr. Key newcomers: Ramzy Halaikah, Jr. Outlook: Nine seniors graduated from last year, so Monestero’s team will make some major tactical adjustments, including a shift in formation. After fielding a team with most of the original members of the Hiawatha varsity team,

which began only two years ago, the next wave of players is getting its chance to make an impact. Monestero’s take: “Key returners have shown great leadership to our younger players and have created a smooth transition. In the past, Hiawatha has looked to hang its hat on a few very talented players but now the Hawks have more even talent spread across the field. Hiawatha continues to build a solid boys soccer program as it starts its fourth year.”

HINCKLEY-BIG ROCK Coach: Paul Taeuber (sixth season) 2012 record: 23-5, 6-1 Little Ten Conference, finished third in Class 1A Key returners: Tom Sanders, Sr.; Andy VanLanduyt, Sr.; Jason Bohannon, Jr.; Eric Phillips, Jr.; Jeremy Perales, Jr.; Bailey McQueen, Jr.; Jack Bullard, So. Key newcomers: Adam Joyner, Sr.; Alex Perales, Fr. Outlook: The Royals lose the bulk of their roster that made a run all the way to the state semifinal and finished in third place in Class 1A. Defense will be the focus this year, with seniors Tom Sanders and Andy VanLanduyt anchoring the defense along with returning juniors Jason Bohannon and Bailey McQueen. The H-BR offense may take some time to come together after 111 of 130 total goals were scored by seniors last year. Taeuber’s take: “Defensively, we bring back a lot of experience. On the attack, Eric Phillips and Jeremy Perales have been starting since midway through their freshman year, so they have a lot of experience. I think it’s their time to shine. I hope they’re looking forward to it.”

INDIAN CREEK Coach: Eric Schrader (seventh season) 2012 record: 8-14, 2-5 Little Ten Conference; Lost in Class 1A Regional semifinal Key returners: Stephen Muetze, Sr.; Jeremy Potter, Sr.; Gavin Eberly, Sr.; Tim Sommerfeld, Sr. Key newcomers: Trevor Guerra, Fr.; Austin Sommerfeld, Fr.; Dylan Eberly, So. Outlook: The Timberwolves lost a strong senior class, and their leading scorer, Matt Shroka, moved out. But Schrader thinks his team still has enough to be in the mix for a conference title. Schrader’s take: “We will be young but we have a really strong group of freshmen coming in mixed with some sophomores and juniors who didn’t go out last year. Our focus this year is to go out and play hard every game and try to be in the mix for the conference. I

think these guys know that people don’t expect them to do much this year and they want to prove everyone wrong.”

KANELAND Coach: Scott Parillo (13th season) 2012 record: 16-4-2, 7-2-1 Northern Illinois Big 12; lost in Class 2A Sectional Championship Key returners: Anthony Parillo, Sr.;-All-State Selection, All-American Nominee, Tyler Siebert, Sr.; Arsim Azemi, Sr.; Chris Van Dinther, Sr.; Matt Vandersande, Sr. Key newcomers: Kolin Limbrick, Sr.; Jack Wolf, Jr.; Jason Carlquist, Jr. Outlook: The Knights advanced all the way to the sectional championship last season, and they have plenty returning. Led by NCSAA Preseason All-American nominee Anthony Parillo and All-Area midfielder Arsim Azemi, Kaneland has enough returning to make a run at a conference title and maybe even a berth in the state tournament. Parillo’s take: “We are expecting to be competitive this year as we had a record number of players try out: 74. We have a lot of returning players, 11, from a squad that made it to the Sweet 16 last season. As long as we stay healthy and gel quickly we should be competitive.”

N.C. STATE FOOTBALL

Prepping for game day Doeren eager to see Wolfpack face game pressure By AARON BEARD The Associated Press RALEIGH, N.C. – North Carolina State is down to its final days of preparation for coach Dave Doeren’s first game with the Wolfpack. He’s eager to find out how his players handle running their new schemes under game pressure this weekend. “Some guys play a lot better in those situations and other guys don’t,” Doeren said Monday, adding that Saturday’s opener against Louisiana Tech will give coaches the first chance “to really see those pieces and how they interact.” Doeren, who left Northern Illinois to replace fired coach Tom O’Brien, spent training camp pushing the players to learn more of the offensive and defensive schemes installed during spring practices. While he said he’s excited about how much his players have learned

• FLECK Continued from page B1 “I absolutely love playing the Big Ten schedule, I do,” Fleck said. “I think it’s great for our kids, it’s great for our program. I think it’s great for our environment. Basically, it’s great to see where you’re at. “I love the Big Ten, I love the type of atmosphere the kids get a chance to play in.” Wenning ready to go: Ball State quarterback Keith Wenning, possibly the second-best quarterback in the MAC behind NIU’s Jordan Lynch, underwent minor knee surgery just before the start of camp, but only

missed a few practices. He should be ready to take the field when Ball State hosts Illinois State at 6 p.m. Thursday. “We did go in and get his knee scoped early during camp. He had an old lingering injury that flared up and started to annoy him a little bit,” Cardinals head coach Pete Lembo said. “He was out a very short amount of time, probably missed 3-4 days of practice, and we eased him into the lineup. He feels great.”

Three top-10 teams await MAC foes: As is the normal case any season, there are some big challenges for MAC schools as they open the nonconference schedule.

• SOCCER Continued from page B1 But despite having a worse record than in 2010, the Royals made a run to the supersectionals and narrowly missed out on a trip to state. This year, Taeuber is hoping for the same magic. “We want to have the mentality that, ‘Yeah, we got really close to state one year, we got to state one year, and the year after, it’s time to win it.’ They have to have that mentality. When you have that mentality, you find ways to win.” The Royals do have returning experience from last year’s run. They should improve defensively, with starters Tom Sanders, Andy VanLanduyt, Jason Bohannon and Bailey McQueen returning. Offensively, the Royals have plenty of questions after losing quite a bit of firepower. But Taeuber is confident seniors Eric Phillips and Jeremy Perales will be able to lead an attack that will be bolstered by Jack Bullard, a sophomore who Taeuber said has the potential to put up 20 goals and 20 assists. “We don’t have that same kind of go-to person. I would like to say that because we’re going to pass the ball, we’re going to pass the ball better than we have the last two,

three years,” Taeuber said. “The last couple of years, I could pick the best two, three players, and figure out the goals, but that’s not the case this year.” And while plenty of new pieces will be worked into the lineup, most of the team was able to experience the state tournament last year, and they know what it takes to compete at a high level. That, in itself, is valuable to Taeu-

ber. “I think they’re going to grow into that role of believing they can do it and then doing it,” Taeuber said. “They have that last two, three years experience that I hope they have already learned those lessons rather than trying to relearn them. They may be in a different role, but they have those expectations, they know what it feels like to be at both ends and what it takes.”

Three MAC programs face top-10 teams on the road. Buffalo heads to No. 2 Ohio State at 11 p.m. Saturday, Toledo will play 10thranked Florida at 11:21 p.m. Saturday at The Swamp, while Ohio plays at No. 9 Louisville at 3:30 p.m. Sunday. The Cardinals are coming off of an upset over the Gators in the Sugar Bowl and are an overwhelming favorite to win the American Athletic Conference. “They are a top-10 ranked team and deservedly so,” Bobcats coach Frank Solich said. “They’ve got great experience coming back on both sides of the ball even though they are still young.”

quarterback. The school said last week that Doeren wouldn’t reveal a starting quarterback until the day of the opener. Doeren said both players would have a good idea of their roles ahead of time and didn’t rule out using both Mitchell and Thomas on Saturday. “We’ve talked a lot with all the quarterbacks just kind of where they stand and what they need to work on,” Doeren said. “There isn’t a magical rep count that we’ve talked about with those guys, about a first play or anything like that yet. But by the end of practice Wednesday, I think there will be a real firm grasp on those guys’ parts.” N.C. State is going with a no-huddle offense that Doeren has said blends elements from Wisconsin – where Doeren had worked as an assistant before taking over at NIU – and Oregon.

MAC playing top 10 teams this week

SYCAMORE Coach: Dave Lichamer (12th season) 2012 record: 2-17-1, 0-10 NI Big 12 East, lost in Class 2A Regional quarterfinal Key returners: Jacob Bassett, Jr.; Jacob Brown, Sr.; Ivan Chavez, Jr.; Ian Findley, Sr.; Tyler Maveus, So.; Adam Millburg, Jr; Kendryck Rand, Sr. Key newcomers: Jarrett Brown, So.; Alex Handel, Sr.; Tanner Yohe, Sr. Outlook: The Spartans are ready to get back to their winning ways after a few rough seasons, and they have plenty of seniors returning hoping to turn around the Sycamore program. Winning a few matches in conference play would go a long way toward getting this program back on track. Lichamer’s take: “After a rough season last year with a young team. … we are looking to change things around and get some more wins. Our numbers are up program wide and we have some players who are hungry to get back to a winning record. We still play a tough schedule, so it will not be easy, but we will be ready for the challenge.”

so far, he won’t know for sure how much they’ve really processed until they take the field for the first time. It’s why Doeren said there’s “a lot of answered questions about our personnel” as his team starts the week. Some of that comes from the team’s lack of experience with the no-huddle offense, for example, while some comes from the fact he knows the Wolfpack will be a young team prone to some growing pains. Seven freshmen appear on the team’s two-deep depth chart, including a pair of receivers in Bra’Lon Cherry and Marques Valdes-Scantling. Three redshirt freshmen also appear, though none of those 10 players are listed as starters. The biggest question still hovering over the Wolfpack is still whether Arkansas graduate transfer Brandon Mitchell or Colorado State junior transfer Pete Thomas will start at

Sprint Cup leaders

Furniture Row never stood a chance to keep Kurt Busch

SPRINT CUP SERIES Advocare 500 Race time: 6:30 p.m., Sunday Site: Atlanta Motor Speedway, Hampton, Ga. TV: ESPN

IN THE PITS Jenna Fryer CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Furniture Row Racing never stood a chance at keeping Kurt Busch once Gene Haas began courting the 2004 NASCAR champion. A tremendous talent behind the wheel, Busch’s terrible temper led to what was thought to be a career-killing moment in 2011 when he was fired by Penske Racing. It was Furniture Row that rescued him from the back of the pack with six races remaining last season and gave him a chance to be competitive again. The single-car team based in Denver, far away from the NASCAR hub in North Carolina, didn’t ask much of Busch. Team owner Barney Visser didn’t need his driver to wine and dine a bunch of clients, or be on his best behavior at all times. All he wanted was a wheel man focused on getting the No. 78 to Victory Lane. The result was a breakthrough season for Furniture Row, which before Busch had one win, three top-five finishes, eight top-10s and 48 laps led in almost 200 races. Since Busch came on board, the car has six top-five finishes, 14 top-10s, 368 laps led and has qualified on the front row seven times. The team is even in contention for a berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, though Saturday night’s 31st-place finish dropped Busch to 12th in the standings with two races remaining to set the field. But Busch already has one foot out the door. He said Monday he’s accepted Haas’ offer to join Stewart-Haas Racing next season, and will be officially introduced as the driver of a new fourth entry sponsored out of Haas’ pocket today. “Gene wants to win, and

Kurt Busch looks on before qualifying for the NASCAR Sprint Cup series Coca-Cola 600 on May 23 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C. It seems almost imminent that Kurt Busch will use a pending offer from Stewart-Haas Racing to end two seasons of purgatory and rejoin a top NASCAR team. wants me to go out there and perform to the best of my abilities,” Busch told The Associated Press on Monday. Visser wanted the exact same thing. Furniture Row counteroffered last weekend at Bristol, but they knew they could never match Haas’ offer – not on paper and not on the track. “I think the strength of what we bring isn’t in an offer,” general manager Joe Garone told AP before Saturday night’s race. “It’s what we deliver. Creating an environment where all the focus is on Kurt Busch, 100 percent on him. That’s a big thing. Not a lot of teams can deliver that. A single car team that runs up front – that’s us. I think that’s real valuable. I think that makes a difference and I think that’s career changing.” It was career changing for Busch, and remember, it came at a time when Busch was fairly untouchable.

James Finch still gave him a ride last season, but his Phoenix Racing was short on cash all season and Finch could never bring in enough corporate backing to make the relationship sustainable. Visser, the owner of Furniture Row, decided to take the chance. He owns his company and while he’d like to have sponsors, he can operate without them. His interest came at the same time SHR was considering a deal with Busch, but couldn’t make the numbers work – in part because of sponsorship and because Haas wasn’t making the financial commitment he’s doing today. So it was off to Colorado for Busch, who was still a long way away from the NASCAR heavyweights. As Garone saw it, it was the perfect time for the pairing. “There was a time when there was a lot of turmoil and a lot of things going on and distractions and things that made

you question whether you even want to be in the sport and what we tried to do coming into this was to take him out of that, and get him away from the things that caused distractions and aggravations,” Garone said. “One of the things that comes to mind is sponsorship commitments and off-track activities, we really do not require a whole lot. Our entire focus is on driving the car and building the relationships with the team and letting him get to a place where he’s comfortable with that, and letting him build strength back within himself. “I think we’ve seen results from that. He has some real tight, very personal friendships here. We feel that way about him, too. He’s certainly a friend to the team.” Furniture Row offered Busch a drama-free zone where he could be Kurt Busch, warts and all, and they accepted him for who he was. Because Busch wants to win races and Busch pushed Furniture Row to be better, and with him driving its cars, it was, for the first time in team history, able to run with the big boys. That was the problem. Busch is a big boy, and a driver of Busch’s ability should be with a big boy team. That’s why, at the end of the day, Furniture Row never had a chance. Busch had a mantra when he left Penske, he wanted to “put the fun back in racing.” What it meant was that he needed to take a step back, serve his time, rebuild his image and get another big team to put their faith in him. He can check off all those boxes. Furniture Row may have been the best fit for Kurt Busch the person. But at SHR, he’ll be running with the big dogs again.

Woman battling past must face the future Dear Abby: I am a 65-yearold active woman who still works. I play tennis several times a week and have a loving relationship with my kids. I know with certainty that I have many good things in my life. However, since my sister died last year, I have been having second thoughts about a lot of the decisions I have made over the years – especially regarding relationships and my choice of jobs. I realize now that more than a few of my decisions were based on low self-esteem, although I don’t come across that way. I’m feeling depressed and lonely, and it’s hard to be positive. I feel like my world is shrinking, and I don’t know how to get back on track and be a positive and happy person again. As it is, I’m faking it with my

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips children, and my friends have no idea how I really feel. How do I improve my life at this late stage? – Depressed in San Diego Dear Depressed: One way would be to be more honest with your friends and fake it less. If they are good friends, they’ll be willing to listen and give you an honest perspective or the benefit of their life experience. That’s what friends do for each other. You are lucky to be vital and active, because it means your world doesn’t have to shrink any more than you want it to. Because you say you’re lonely, perhaps it’s time to consider enlarging

your circle of acquaintances. The loss of your sister is probably what started your re-evaluation of your life and choices, and that’s normal. But please remember that regret is the cancer of life. You can’t change the past, and you mustn’t allow it to cloud your future. While you may be having second thoughts about choices you made when you were younger, the lessons you learned from them have made you the person you are today. Dear Abby: I think our culture is severely lacking when we don’t teach our children how to politely and non-aggressively stand up for themselves when the need arises. People suffer in all sorts of relationships – work, family, friends – because they’re afraid of confrontation. Raising a subject that may

be embarrassing and risking angering someone isn’t fun, but it’s COMMUNICATION. If you have a problem, large or small, address it in private with the individual. And if someone tries to talk to you about something you’d rather not hear, be an adult, listen and respond civilly instead of reacting childishly. We teach children to respect authority, be kind to others and be leaders – but we don’t teach them healthy confrontation, which is something we all encounter in our lives. – Talking It Out in Indiana Dear Talking It Out: I agree with you. The kind of communication you’re describing is a skill. It requires not only a strong ego on the part of the “confronter,” but also tact and diplomacy. And the “confrontee” needs to have

the ability to listen without responding with hostility to what is being said. Dear Abby: In my university classroom, students place their feet on chairs, teachers lecture while sitting on their desks, and the dean of the school herself sits atop her desk and places her feet on a chair in front of her. Please tell me that this is NOT OK! – Proper in Washington Dear Proper: It appears you come from a generation or culture in which the atmosphere has always been quite formal. I can tell you it’s “not OK” if it will make you feel better, but if it’s acceptable to the teacher, the dean and the school, then it’s time for you to loosen up.

Guard against tick bites by following tips Dear Dr. K: I live in a heavily wooded area, so I’d like to know the best way to remove a tick if you spot one on your skin. Dear Reader: Knowing how to remove a tick is a useful skill for anyone who spends time outdoors, or who cares for someone who does. The sooner a tick is removed – correctly – the less likely the critter can deliver bacteria that cause Lyme disease or other tick-borne diseases. Very young deer ticks feed on mice and other small mammals. Those animals have the bacteria that cause Lyme disease in their blood. Once the tick feeds, the bacteria enter the ticks.

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff The next late spring or summer these ticks are “older children.” This is typically the time that they will get on our skin and start to feed. Because they’re so small, it’s easy not to notice them. They are brown and about the size of a poppy seed. If they have two days to feed on our skin, they will transmit the Lyme disease bacteria to us. (Occasionally, adult female deer ticks feed on us, but they are much bigger and harder to miss.) Deer ticks are designed to

feed successfully on us. They have a two-pronged mouthpart that sticks to our skin because each part has tiny backward-pointing barbs. Just to be sure that their mouthparts stick to our skin, their saliva forms a sticky glue. It’s a fiendishly clever anatomy. We also have been clever, however: We invented tweezers. To remove a tick, use a pair of fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick as close to your skin as possible. Then pull it upward, slowly and steadily. (I’ve put an illustration of how to remove a tick on my website, AskDoctorK.com.) If the mouthpart remains in the skin, try to remove it. If you can’t, check with your

doctor. Try not to crush or squeeze an attached tick. Once the tick has been removed, clean your skin and wash your hands with soap and warm water. Dispose of the tick by placing it in alcohol or flushing it down the toilet. The first sign of Lyme disease is often a rash that looks like a red bull’s-eye. Keep an eye out for this rash at the site of your tick bite for about one month after you’ve been bitten. If you notice a rash, contact your doctor right away. Antibiotics can usually cure the illness. Follow these tips to prevent tick bites in the first place:

(1) Avoid woods, high brush and grasses, where ticks hide. (2) Wear light-colored clothing, which makes ticks easier to spot. (3) Tuck your pants inside your socks to create a physical barrier. (4) Use insect repellent, especially those containing DEET or permethrin. (5) Stay in the sun. Ticks don’t like dry, open areas. (6) Thoroughly inspect yourself, your children and your pets, especially the legs and groin, after you’ve been out in the woods.

and he has dinner with my parents nearly every Sunday. This bothers me a lot. I’m not happy with my mother being such close friends with an ex-boyfriend of mine. I’m wondering if Carl is keeping close to my mother to find out if my marriage is stable or if he still might have a chance if it fails. I can tell you this – my marriage is definitely not going to fail, and even if it did, Carl would never be a contender. I told my mother that I wasn’t happy with her being such a close friend with my ex-boyfriend, but she says that I can’t tell her who to

have for a friend. What can I do about this awkward situation? – Nameless, Naples, Fla. Nameless: I agree that your mother is off base in her ongoing close friendship with Carl. What does your father say about this? Is he pals with Carl, or does he merely tolerate these Sunday dinners with him? Seems to me that these dinners would be better spent with you, Ryan and their grandson! Maybe you could enlist your father’s help and tell your mom that she must never again speak about her disappointment that you

did not marry Carl. Suggest that your parents occasionally visit your family on a Sunday and have dinner with you. Prepare something simple, and enjoy time with your parents and your family. You can’t stop your mom from being friends with Carl. That’s her business, as she says. But she needs to get it through her stubborn head that you’re married to Ryan and she must accept him wholeheartedly as her sonin-law.

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Guesses are not often guesses In “The Devil’s Dictionary,” Ambrose Bierce defined “prescription” as a physician’s guess at what will best prolong the situation with least harm to the patient. At the bridge table, the prescription for success is trying not to have to guess what to do, but what will have mathematically the best chance to succeed. In this deal, South is in four spades. West leads the club queen. Since East is marked with the club ace, declarer plays low from the board at tricks one and two, but still loses the first three tricks. East then shifts to the spade six. After drawing trumps, how should declarer continue? South opened three spades, showing a respectable suit, some 6-10 high-card points and about seven winners. Here, North would have done well to respond three no-trump, but if South’s suit needed establishing, that contract could have gone down several tricks. Raising to four spades was “normal.” South has only nine winners: seven spades, one heart and one diamond. At first glance, it looks as though he needs one of the red-suit finesses to work. But which one should he take? It seems to be a pure guess. However, he can improve his odds slightly. Declarer should play a diamond to dummy’s ace, ruff a low diamond in his hand, return to dummy with a trump, and ruff another diamond. Here, the king drops, establishing dummy’s queen and allowing South to claim. But if the diamond king is still out there somewhere, declarer cashes the rest of his trumps, planning to take the heart finesse at trick 12.
