Answers sought in murder-suicide Neighbors trying to piece together information By CHRIS BURROWS cburrows@shawmedia.com

and JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI jduchnowski@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Morgan Chaney didn’t just shine on stage as a high-schooler, she helped bring plays to life from behind the scenes. “She was always willing to dig in and help out however she could,” former Indian Creek High School drama teacher Jan Kuntz remembers. “She was always willing to do any job. She would paint and work on the set, in addition to being on the stage.” Now Kuntz is holding tighter than ever to her fondest memo-

ries of her former student, whom she says was a gifted performer on stage and in band and choir. Chaney played varsity volleyball before she graduated from the school about eight years ago. Chaney, 26, was fatally shot at her home in the 1300 block of Omega Circle Drive early Saturday morning by her former boyfriend, 31-year-old Andre Gomez, DeKalb police said. Authorities released more details Monday about the murder-suicide, as neighbors struggled to understand the violence that marred their quiet neighborhood. “I’m trying to remember all the fun that we had and all the work that we did and keep those memo-

ries in my heart,” Kuntz said. Gomez called police early Saturday morning to tell them a crime had been committed at Chaney’s home before fatally shooting himself in rural Shabbona, police said. DeKalb police had not received any calls before Saturday involving Gomez or Chaney, nor any calls involving her cellphone or her address in the 1300 block of Omega Circle Drive, DeKalb police Cmdr. John Petragallo said. Gomez was distraught after their long-term dating relationship ended about a month ago, Petragallo said.

Hot weather means early dismissal at District 428 elementary schools Forecast temperatures (in degrees F)

By FELIX SARVER fsarver@shawmedia.com DeKALB – With today’s forecast calling for a high temperature in the 90s, students at five DeKalb School District 428 elementary schools with no air conditioning or partial air conditioning will be dismissed at 1 p.m. It will be the second consecutive day that students at Malta Elementary, Lincoln Elementary, Littlejohn Elementary, Jefferson Elementary and Founders Elementary schools have been dismissed early because of oppressive heat in the school buildings. District Superintendent Jim Briscoe said that after seeing the red-cheeked faces of students as they were dismissed Monday, he was confident the early dismissal plan was the right decision. “I was at Lincoln Elementary helping with bus duty and they actually came up and thanked me,” Briscoe said. Today’s forecast calls for a high of 94 degrees, the National Weather Service said, although temperatures

Founders Elementary School student Yair de la Cruz, 7, leaves school after an early dismissal Monday in DeKalb with his grandfather, Jose Flores. are expected to plunge by the end of the week. Some area schools are keeping students cool by sharing rooms with air conditioning or canceling outdoor activities in some cases. Briscoe said the District 428 leaders wanted to be proactive in dealing with the rising temperatures after

reading weather reports. On Sunday evening, the district alerted families about the changes to its schedule so they could make child care arrangements ahead of time. Briscoe said it’s difficult for schools to function in uncomfortably hot conditions. “It was extremely difficult for

teaching and learning the days we had a heat index over 100 [degrees],” Briscoe said. Jamie Enderlen, National Weather Service meteorologist, said the hot weather this week came from winds traveling from west-central Missouri that pushed warm air into the area. She said she expects the weather to become increasingly cool by the end of the week, with temperatures in the 60s by Friday.

DeKALB – A campaign to move a small crew of proposed property inspectors from DeKalb’s Crime Free Housing Program to the city’s Building and Code Enforcement Department was defeated at Monday’s City Council meeting. Dave Baker, 6th Ward Alderman, originally brought the issue before council and argued actively for the change Monday. Since the motion involved an amendment to the city’s budget, six yes votes were needed for passage, but only three out of the council’s eight members voted in support of the move. Now, the city will continue with its original plan to hire three part-time property inspectors under Crime Free Housing and Inspection Coordinator Carl Leoni. Baker, along with 7th Ward Alderwoman Monica O’Leary and 1st Ward Alderman David Jacobson voted yes. Mayor John Rey sided with the majority. “We’re in the process of recruiting a permanent city manager; I don’t see making a substantial change in organizational structure before that new city manager is in place,” Rey said after the meeting. “It also gives us time to fully evaluate the performance of the housing bureau as we know it under one supervisor.” The Crime Free Housing Program had been in the works for years before Leoni, a former DeKalb police officer, was hired in February to get the program off the ground. It’s tasked with fighting crime in the city’s estimated 9,000 rental properties by working with landlords to promote peace among tenants. Some landlords have objected, however, to the program’s property inspections plan that hopes to help keep properties within city appearance codes by inspecting each one at least every three years. Baker’s proposal had the support of DeKalb Area Rental Association President William Heinisch, who spoke before the council Monday.

Newest Spartans arrive in Sycamore DeKALB COUNTY LIFE Barry Schrader It is always fascinating to meet newcomers to the United States, and talking with two new foreign exchange students attending Sycamore High School was no exception. Nana Grønlund Mohr from Denmark and Giulia Cattivelli from northern Italy arrived just before school started and have yet to witness a high school football game. Both are more familiar with soccer in their home countries. Nana has a younger sister at home, with one parent living in Aarhus and the other in Randers. Her father owns a commercial insurance firm, and her mother has worked in retail, is into floral decorating and studied to teach special needs children. Nana chose to enter school here as a junior because she is 16 years old, even though she has completed high school in Denmark. To enter a Danish university, you must be proficient in three languages – hers are Danish, English and German. She faces seven years of college because she wants to become a doctor. But there is no tuition as the government provides free education. Nana said she has found peanut butter and macaroni and cheese to her liking, but the flavored popcorn leaves something to be desired. School days are much easier for her here. Back home they have a longer day, with two breaks and they stay in the same room all year; the teachers come to them. The most famous star in Denmark? That’s guitarist and songwriter Kim Larsen. She said she hopes to visit the White House and some national parks before her U.S. stay ends; she holds President Barack Obama in high regard. Her Rotary host family here are Ben and Lori Swedberg. Talking with Giulia, I found that Italian schools also are different than here. She is 17, so she entered the senior class at Sycamore. Next fall she

The Associated Press AMSTERDAM – A painting that sat for six decades in a Norwegian industrialist’s attic after he was told it was a fake Van Gogh was pronounced the real thing Monday, making it the first full-size canvas by the tortured Dutch artist to be discovered since 1928. Experts at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam authenticated the 1888 landscape “Sunset at Montmajour” with the help of Vincent Van Gogh’s letters, chemical analysis of the pigments and X-rays of the canvas. Museum director Axel Rueger, at an unveiling ceremony, called the discovery a “once-in-a-lifetime experience.” “This is a great painting from what many see as the high point of his artistic achievement, his period in Arles, in southern France,” Rueger said. “In the same period, he painted works such as ‘Sunflowers,’ ‘The Yellow House’ and ‘The Bedroom.’ ” Museum officials would not identify the owner who brought the artwork to

LAKE MARY, Fla. – The sobbing wife of George Zimmerman called 911 Monday to report that her estranged husband was threatening her with a gun and had punched her father in the nose, but hours later she decided not to press charges against the man acquitted of all charges for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin. Lake Mary police officers were still investigating the encounter as a domestic dispute, but no charges had been filed Monday afternoon. George Zimmerman, wearing a flannel shirt, base-

Both are enrolled for the year at Sycamore. will return to her fifth year of high school in Italy. They attend classes six hours a day with only one short break to have a snack. Their teachers also move from room to room and they stay with the same classmates through all five years of high school, in classes of about 22 to 25 students. Her father is a computer programmer for a bank and her mother formerly worked as a secretary for a beverage company. She has one sister four years her junior. New foods she has enjoyed here so far are corn on the cob, pancakes with maple syrup, some pastries and brownies. Giulia’s hometown of Monticelli d’Ongina has a population of only 5,000 and has no high school, so she attends a boarding school in a nearby city, commuting by bus daily. Similar to Nana’s school, they have digital “smart boards” in front of the class, operated by computers. This is a recent innovation in Italy, she said, and computers for students at school must be paid for by the parents. She has her own laptop and iPod, plus a cellphone.

To keep in touch with family and friends she sends text messages and uses Skype, which provides a video connection as well. Guilia said she would like to see Colorado and Alaska before leaving the country. She said her educational and career plans after high school are still fluid. Dan and Jody Ryan are her host family for her Sycamore schooling, through the American Field Service intercultural program. I decided to save the more controversial questions – like their opinions on the use of chemical weapons in Syria, Illinois’ power politics, or American intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan – for the end of their stay here, so they will have time to hear what Americans think as well. It will be a pleasure to chat with them again next summer. • Barry Schrader can be reached via email at barry815@sbcglobal.net or at P.O. Box 851, DeKalb, IL. 60115.

them in 2011 to be authenticated. Van Gogh paintings are among the most valuable in the world, fetching tens of millions of dollars on the rare occasions one is sold at auction. The artwork will be on display at the museum beginning Sept. 24. The roughly 37-by-29-inch “Sunset at Montmajour” depicts a dry landscape of twisting oak trees, bushes and sky, and was done during the period when Van Gogh was increasingly adopting the thick “impasto” brush strokes that became typical of his work in the final years of his short life. It can be dated to the exact day it was painted because he described it in a letter to his brother, Theo, and said he had painted it the previous day – July 4, 1888. “At sunset I was on a stony heath where very small, twisted oaks grow, in the background a ruin on the hill and wheat fields in the valley,” Van Gogh wrote. “It was romantic. ... The sun was pouring its very yellow rays over the bushes and the ground, absolutely a shower of gold.”

But then Van Gogh confessed that the painting was “well below what I’d wished to do.” Later he sent it to Theo to keep. Van Gogh struggled with bouts of mental distress throughout his life and died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 1890. He sold only one painting during his lifetime. According to a reconstruction published in The Burlington Magazine by three researchers, the painting was recorded as number 180 in Theo’s collection and given the title “Sun Setting at Arles.” It was sold to French art dealer Maurice Fabre in 1901. Fabre never recorded selling the work, and the painting disappeared from history until it reappeared in 1970 in the estate of Norwegian industrialist Christian Nicolai Mustad. The Mustad family said Mustad purchased it in 1908 as a young man in one of his first forays into art collecting, but was soon told by the French ambassador to Sweden that it was a fake. Embarrassed, Mustad banished it to the attic.

Shellie Zimmerman, who has filed for divorce, initially told a 911 dispatcher that her husband had his hand on his gun as he sat in his car outside the home she was at with her father. She said she was scared because she wasn’t sure what Zimmerman was capable of doing. But hours later she changed her story and said she never saw a firearm, said Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell. For the time being, “domestic violence can’t be invoked because she has changed her story and says she didn’t

see a firearm,” Bracknell said. On the 911 call, Shellie Zimmerman is sobbing and repeating “Oh my God” as she talks to a police dispatcher. She yells at her father to get inside the house, saying Zimmerman may start shooting at them. “He’s threatening all of us with a firearm ... He punched my dad in the nose,” Shellie Zimmerman said on the call. “I don’t know what he’s capable of. I’m really scared.” She also said he grabbed an iPad from her hand and smashed it. Her father also declined to press charges, the police chief said.

Author stresses acts of kindness G-K students get to hear man’s message

Maple Park resident receives 4-H honor By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com

By FELIX SARVER fsarver@shawmedia.com GENOA – The stories Jonathan Friesen tells show how easily lives can be changed with small acts of kindness. On Monday at Genoa-Kingston High School, the Minnesota author told students about a quiet boy who left his backpack on a school bus at the end of the school year. Another student noticed he left his backpack behind and she brought it to his home. Years later, the same student told her he had planned to kill himself before she showed up at his door. Friesen said that student is now a 55-year-old man with children and grandchildren. “It doesn’t take much to literally change a course of a life,” he said. Friesen’s own life changed when he took up writing fiction after 16 years of teaching in Minnesota elementary schools. He has gone on to write a book about firefighters called “Rush,” and his latest book is a science fiction novel called “Aquifer.” His first book “Jerk, California,” is novel that draws parallels with his own struggles with Tourette’s syndrome, loneliness and alienation. Friesen was invited to G-K to speak about those issues and stress the importance of reaching out to others who appear alone or ostracized. Tara Wilkins, Genoa-Kingston School District 424 librarian and media specialist, said she was contacted by Friesen’s publicist about him speaking at the school. She said his message of kindness and ac-

Minnesota author Jonathan Friesen visited Genoa-Kingston High School on Monday to speak with students about reaching out to others who seem alone or ostracized. Friesen has written several books, including one based on his own life called “Jerk, California.”

“It doesn’t take much to literally change a course of a life.” Jonathan Friesen Author, visiting Genoa-Kingston High School ceptance was important for students to hear. “I wanted to bring that message to the school,” Wilkins said. Friesen told students that he has suffered from Tourette’s syndrome since he was 6. Although it wasn’t much of a problem in elementary school, it became one when he entered middle school and was bullied. After he suffered a grand mal seizure, he felt as if no one would ever want to spend time with him. He stayed locked in his

room for two years; his first attempts at writing were angry and self-loathing scrawling on his walls. It wasn’t until another person reached out to him and took away the hate he had for himself that he started to get better. Friesen returned to school and earned a master’s degree in teaching English as a second language. During his two years of isolation, two questions lurked in his mind: Did anyone see him, and if they did, did anyone like what they saw? Friesen posed those questions for the students in the audience. For

Plea deal in home invasion case DeKalb woman, 23, gets 30 days in jail, a $1,000 fine By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI jduchnowski@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – A 22-yearold DeKalb woman accused of breaking into an apartment and threatening someone Feb. 16 accepted a misdemeanor plea deal Monday. Alicia M. Crider, of the 900 block of Spiros Court, pleaded guilty to criminal trespass to residence and resisting a peace officer. She was fined $1,000 and sentenced to 30 days in jail and two years of probation. In exchange for her guilty

plea, prosecutors dropped charges of home invasion and mob action. If convicted of home invasion, Crider could have been sentenced to between six and 30 years in prison. Crider was among four people charged in connection with the incident in the 600 block of Greenbrier Road. Police found her in an argument with several other people after someone called to report people running out of an apartment with a bat and hammer, court records

show. In connection to the same incident, Mitchell Jenkins, 23, of the 900 block of Spiros Court in DeKalb, was sentenced to 2½ years of probation and 100 hours of community service for mob action. Charges remain pending against Jemario Corneilius, 27, of the 600 block of Lucinda Avenue in DeKalb, and against Elise Lewis, 19, of the 1000 block of State Street in DeKalb. Both are due in court Sept. 30.

Sophomore student Andrew Caldwell said he learned from Friesen that people who aren’t noticed on a daily basis deserved to be noticed just as much as anyone. Another student, sophomore Noah Engles, said he found Friesen’s speech breathtaking and moving. “The things he said can connect to your everyday life,” Engles said.

MAPLE PARK – Maple Park resident Jean Fabrizius said she thought of her father last month when she was recognized at the Illinois State Fair as one of 65 inductees to the Illinois 4-H Hall of Fame. “My dad was a 4-H leader of the Somonauk Haymakers when I was in it,” the 55-yearold said, noting her father died in March. “I just really thought of him when I was standing on stage. I did right by Dad, I guess.” The Illinois 4-H Foundation established the Hall of Fame in 2004 to honor and celebrate extraordinary 4-H alumni, volunteers and former staff members. As a Hall of Fame inductee, Fabrizius received a medallion and will be added to the virtual 4-H Hall of Fame list. Fabrizius, who works as a client adviser at Resource Bank in DeKalb, belongs to the ninth and largest class of inductees since the recognition began. Fabrizius described the honor as “surreal.” “I was just speechless when I heard I was being inducted into the Hall of Fame,” she said. Fabrizius is not only a 4-H alumna, but she is also a longtime volunteer. Her involvement as an adult began when her oldest child, who’s now 25, joined the Maple Park Lincoln Highway club at age 8, she said. Her other children went with her to the meetings, she said, noting the youngest would sit on her lap. “We just all got involved as a family immediately,” Fabrizius said, “and we never looked back.” Her youngest son recent-

Her three children showed pigs and goats at several fairs, including the Sandwich Fair and county fairs in Kane, DuPage, Grundy, Boone and Kendall counties. But, she said, that doesn’t mean her involvement with the organization will end. “I believe in 4-H very much,” Fabrizius said. “I think I will continue to be involved and support the organization.” Her involvement includes serving as a member of the Blue Ribbon Sale Committee as well as the Unit 5 combined council and co-chairing the kitchen committee for the annual Kane County 4-H Foundation Pork Chop Dinner and Fundraiser. “Jean is an outstanding leader and example for our youth in Kane County,” Sandra Davis, director of University of Illinois Extension for DuPage, Kane and Kendall counties, said in a written statement. “She is a compassionate, dedicated and generous volunteer, and we are grateful to have her as an integral part of our program.”

Quinn: 80K jobs from foreign firms since 2009 By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press CHICAGO – On the heels of his trip to Japan, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has again taken credit for a reported boost in the state’s job numbers: Roughly 80,000 more through foreign firms since the Chicago Democrat took office in 2009. But economists and business leaders say it’s not all Quinn’s doing. Quinn – who returns today from a conference with other Midwest governors and Japanese executives – has touted his travel as a way to boost Illinois’ business climate. Last month he credited his yearly Christmas trip to visit wound-

ed soldiers in Germany as the reason that Germany-based Rittal Corp., will move its U.S. headquarters from Ohio to Illinois. While his efforts get a nod from experts, they say there are a number of other reasons Illinois is seeing the increase. For one, Illinois is already an attractive international business hub. Nearly 20 percent of the state gross product is international trade, according to the Illinois Chamber of Commerce. Add to that its central location, bustling O’Hare International Airport and Chicago’s heavy concentration of foreign national consulates. “The international economy is a very important part of

the Illinois economy. It’s not surprising that there would be a lot of jobs created,” said University of Illinois economist Fred Giertz. “These things happen automatically, it doesn’t take a governor or a mayor to make it happen.” The new figures, released Sunday, come from a report through the credit report service for businesses, Dun & Bradstreet, according to the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. The figures cover 2009’s end to earlier this year. Quinn took office in January 2009. “Our efforts to increase foreign direct investment in Illinois are paying solid dividends,” Quinn said in a statement. “These jobs have played

a major role in fueling Illinois’ economic recovery in recent years, and we must continue to build on these efforts in order to create jobs and compete in the global economy.” His office said that the number of people employed by foreign firms in Illinois has increased every year since 2009, going from 280,419 to 359,775 in July this year. More than 450 foreign companies have located to Illinois in the same time. Still, Illinois has high unemployment. The state’s rate in July was 9.2 percent, the second highest in the nation. Illinois – which has the nation’s worst-funded pension system and billions in unpaid bills – has also faced criticism for not doing enough to pro-

mote business. Quinn has focused on Illinois’ high export numbers, something that every state in the country has also increased. He’s led three major trade missions in his tenure: China in 2011 and Brazil and Canada the next year. Chamber of Commerce President Doug Whitley said the travel does help in other ways. “When Quinn makes an international trip, that’s a way of beginning to show that he’s change the tone, trying to change the image,” he said. “He’s trying, and rightly so, to send a different message about who we are and what we’re about.” He said when one company

establishes itself in Illinois, others follow. He pointed to the heavy presence of international companies in Elgin and Rockford. Job creation is bound to be a popular topic as Quinn seeks re-election next year. He’s billed himself as the “jobs governor” and his Democratic opponent Bill Daley is a former U.S. commerce secretary. Daley said Monday that Quinn’s trips haven’t gone far enough. “I have led trade missions with business leaders that have brought billions of dollars and thousands of jobs back to America and that would be a big priority of mine as governor,” he said in a statement.

Groups race to train ‘Obamacare’ guides Police: Sycamore man By CARLA K. JOHNSON The Associated Press CHICAGO – With the program known as “Obamacare” only weeks away from its key launch date, hectic preparations are in motion in communities across the country to deal with one of its major practical challenges: hiring and training a small army of instant experts who can explain the intricacies of health insurance to people who’ve never had it. More than 100 nonprofits and related organizations, which specialize in everything from running soup kitchens to organizing farm workers, have been recruited by the federal government to sign up “navigators” to help the 30 million uninsured people who can now gain coverage. Many of the groups have little expertise in health insurance. And the timeline for training the workers is tight.

Jacqueline Saulsberry, a service coordinator at the Illinois Eye Institute, gathers information from patient Shameka Lewis-Coolidge during an appointment Thursday in Chicago. According to the new health law, people can begin shopping among the new policies Oct. 1. The enrollment period lasts six months. Coverage begins in January. “I think there’s a lot of concern about whether, with all these state requirements,

they are going to be ready to go,” said Katie Keith, a former research professor at Georgetown University, who has been tracking the heath care legislation. “You want people out there educating consumers.” Deploying the guides for

the uninsured is one of the first hurdles for the new health system as it transitions from an abstract political debate in Washington to a real-life process in communities. It is one of the steps government officials are concerned about as critics warn that the Affordable Care Act could become a “train wreck.” The guides will be sent to community events with laptops to help people sign up for insurance online. They will work at food banks, shelters, churches and free clinics where the uninsured are likely to be. The short time available for training raises questions about how prepared the workers will be to answer people’s questions about the different policies and government subsidies available. Community groups received the course materials for the 20-hour training only days ago. Many have just begun to post the openings on job boards.

Neighbor: ‘It’s totally a surprise and a shock’ • ANSWERS Continued from page A1 Police found no sign of trouble about 2:30 a.m. when they responded to Gomez’s 911 call, but Chaney’s family found her dead in her bathroom about 6 a.m. Saturday. Petragallo said Chaney died instantly. Chaney’s family told police her car was missing. Police records show the early morning 911 call had been made from Chaney’s cellphone in rural Shabbona, Petragallo said.

near a wind turbine about 7:50 a.m. Saturday. He was in Chaney’s vehicle with her cellphone, and the caliber of the gun found in the car matched the caliber of the casings found at Chaney’s house, Petragallo said. Police found Gomez’s bicycle near Chaney’s home, and witnesses saw Gomez driving her vehicle about 1 a.m. Saturday near his home in the 1500 block of Reserve Lane in DeKalb, police said. A police search of Gomez’s home Saturday uncovered evidence connecting him to the crime, Petragallo said. Chaney’s neighbors on the residential street near Twombly Road on DeKalb’s northwest side were searching for answers and trying to

process what had happened. “It’s totally a surprise and a shock, because we have not had any issues in all the years that we’ve been here,” said Mark Scott, who lived next door to Chaney. “We’re out in the middle of nowhere, and there’s no problems.” Like Scott, Lorraine Maciorowski was surprised to see police lighting up her street Saturday morning. She said that Chaney’s home had been quiet lately and that the young woman kept to herself. “It’s too close to home,” Maciorowski said. “You think you’re all the way out here on the edge of DeKalb.” Gomez had a valid firearm owner’s identification card, but police did not know

Monday if he had the firearm legally. “Until we do a trace, we won’t have that information,” Petragallo said. Autopsies were performed Monday morning on both Gomez and Chaney, although the final results would not be available for about a week, Petragallo said. Police also plan to run tests on the firearms evidence. The pair had worked for the same company at one time, but Gomez no longer worked there, Petragallo said. On Monday, police knew of no workplace incidents involving the two. “The investigation will continue for several weeks, until we get ballistics back,” Petragallo said.

knocked out neighbor By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI jduchnowski@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – A 26-yearold Evergreen Village Mobile Home Park resident accused of punching out another resident Saturday requested a psychologist during his court appearance Monday. Brendan Elliott, of the 900 block of East State Street in Sycamore, was charged with aggravated battery and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia after police said Brendan Elliott he knocked a man unconscious for a couple of minutes. When the two men he was fighting told him police were on their way, Elliott tossed a drug pipe to the ground and continued fighting, court records show. After police arrived Saturday night, Elliott knocked the man to the ground in front of the officers, court records show. Elliott later slammed

his own face into the metal barrier inside the squad car, breaking his nose and sinus cavity, court records show. During his first court appearance Monday, Elliott shook his head and said “kind of, kind of, kind of,” when Presiding Judge Robbin Stuckert asked if he understood the charges. Shortly after, he said: “I need to talk to a psychologist.” A woman claiming to be Elliott’s girlfriend told Stuckert that the other two men, not Elliott, were the aggressors. Stuckert appointed a public defender to represent Elliott, who is next due in court Wednesday. During the incident, he was out on bond in a pending case alleging possession of a weapon by a felon, prosecutors said. If convicted of the most serious charge he faces, aggravated battery, Elliott could be sentenced to between two and five years in prison. He remained in DeKalb County Jail Monday evening, unable to post 10 percent of his $75,000 bond.

D-427 has heat plans in place • SCHOOLS Continued from page B1 Monday’s weather wasn’t hot enough to merit a heat advisory, which are given out when temperatures reach 105 degrees, she said. Students are not being dismissed early at Sycamore School District 427 this week, but district Superintendent Kathy Countryman said staff have heat plans in place to keep students and themselves cool. With the heat plans, students rotate to different classrooms in buildings with only partial air conditioning to keep cool.

The staff is offering water and freezer pops for the students. “The kids are pretty much used to this,” Spiewak said. Indian Creek School District 425 and Genoa-Kingston School District 424 did not release students early or do much else in the face of the heat. Joe Burgess, Genoa-Kingston superintendent, said all five schools in the district are air-conditioned. Parents wanting to know about any changes to the district’s scheduling should check its Facebook page and website, he said. “Hopefully, the weather will break and we’ll have a normal fall,” District 428’s Briscoe said.

“We’re just being very conscientious about making sure students have an opportunity to cool down and make sure students have time to get water or drinks if necessary,” she said. Southeast Elementary, North Elementary and West Elementary schools are some of the schools within the district with partial air conditioning, she said. As far as she knew, after school programs and sports events were not being canceled. Kathy Spiewak, North Elementary School principal, said teachers and students were doing fine at her school, which has six designated cool areas.

Alderman objects to Baker’s calls for change • HOUSING Continued from page B1 “The crime-free housing bureau should focus on crime and be located in the police department, where their exper-

tise is,” Heinisch said. “Inspections should be dropped from the crime-free housing title.” Baker questioned whether part-time employees could be trusted with such duties and even supported a plan to bring in off-duty firefighters for the

job. Fifth Ward Alderman Ron Naylor objected strongly to Baker’s calls for change. “I would just like to see this [inspection] program going,” Naylor said. “... Let’s get on with it.”

But neither that effort nor the glimmer of a possible diplomatic solution – including vaguely encouraging statements by Russian and Syrian officials – could stop members of Congress from lining up to declare their positions. Not all of them were against Obama. “Today, many Americans

say that these atrocities are none of our business, that they’re not our concern,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said of Assad’s alleged gassing of civilians on Aug. 21. “I disagree. Any time the powerful turn such weapons of terror and destruction against the powerless, it is our business.”

The dealership says it can get $400,000 from Ford Motor Co. to put toward the project, but that it still can’t foot the rest of the bill. The requested rebate would come from new sales taxes generated over and above the existing taxes that the dealership generates now, according to city documents.

8LOCAL BRIEFS Council to delay Ford dealer’s rebate request DeKALB – A sales tax rebate proposal for Brad Manning Ford isn’t ready to be reviewed by the DeKalb City Council, said dealership president Pat Manning on Monday.

Instead, the proposal, which requests a $110,000 salestax rebate to the dealership to help fund a $2.3 million renovation, will be discussed at a later meeting. Manning said the proposal may be ready for council discussion at its next meeting, which is scheduled for Sept. 23.

Rosy’s Roadhouse aims to keep students in town By CHRIS BURROWS cburrows@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Joe Chavez, one of the three owners of Rosy’s Roadhouse, says he hopes his new bar in an old location can help keep Northern Illinois University students from fleeing DeKalb when class isn’t in session. Based on the crowds that the bar has drawn so far, it might be making some inroads. Marty Estrada of DeKalb and his friends stopped by the bar Aug. 30. “We just honestly stepped in and stepped out because there were so

If you go Rosy’s Roadhouse Bar and Grill Address: 930 Pappas Drive, DeKalb Phone: 815-756-3438 Website: www.rosysroadhouseniu.com many people here,” Estrada said. Rosy’s Roadhouse, 930 Pappas Drive, attracted more than 3,000 customers over the course of its opening weekend, Aug. 22 through 24, and about 2,500 the next weekend, Chavez said. Now the bar, which was formerly known as Starbusters

in the same location, is working to spread its appeal across campus and the community behind new owners and a new mission. “We’re trying to bring the whole Chicago vibe out to campus,” Chavez said. “We know that this is a suitcase school, so we’re trying to see if we can help keep the kids here and going to local establishments instead of going home every weekend.” Chavez along with co-owners Brendan Fitzharris and Rosy Amodio have invested thousands of dollars into the bar to turn it around and make it into a promising music

8BRIEFS Curtis Orthodontics throws fifth annual pool party for patients For the patients, friends and families of Dr. Todd Curtis’ orthodontic office, summer just wouldn’t be complete without the annual pool party at Hopkins Park. This year, Curtis joined more than 150 of his patients July 20 to swim, play games and win prizes. “Our annual party always fills me with overwhelming gratitude for the generosity and kindness of our patients and their families,” Curtis said in a news release. “We all had a blast and helped our community’s less fortunate. It was a great event.” Curtis awarded several prizes over the twohour event. Patient Abby LaRocco won a Kindle Fire and Austin Petrie took home the grand prize of a two-hour private party for himself and 20 friends at Sycamore’s Party Zone. Attendees were asked to bring nonperishable food items in exchange for admission into the pool party, and more than 450 food items were collected. As always, the items were donated to local food pantries. Curtis Orthodontics is located at 124 N. California St. in downtown Sycamore. For more information, call 815-895-7660 or visit www. curtisortho.com.

venue. In addition to new floors and fresh paint, 25 new TVs and a fully upgraded stage area, the owners have reopened the bar’s kitchen for the first time in three years. “That’s huge,” Chavez said. “We have a full menu, everything from burgers and wraps to your simple stuff: chicken wings and pizza.” The bar has scheduled a variety of bands and performers to fit a spectrum of tastes. Chicago-based DJs and popular cover bands like Mike and Joe already have graced Rosy’s stage. On Wednesdays, patrons can partake in karoake in front of a live

band. “Instead of just standing up there with a box, you’re up there with a full band,” Chavez said. “... It’s very successful in Chicago, so we’re bringing it out here.” Chavez said the owners began seriously considering the purchase of Starbusters back in October and are still making changes to help attract more and more customers. The bar offers specials for NIU students. “We realized that there’s a good opportunity for us to help, hopefully, bring some nightlife back to DeKalb and add to the great establishments that are out here,” Chavez said.

Time for 35th Pumpkin Run The 35th annual Pumpkin Run, a 10,000-meter USATF-sanctioned and certified road race, is set for Oct. 27 in Sycamore. The race is presented by the Sycamore Chamber of Commerce and KishHealth System. Over the past 12 years, the event has grown from 1,000 runners to more than 1,800. The goal this year is to sign up 2,000 runners. Some added features to the race in recent years include online registration, chip timers and now, every racer receives a longsleeved Tech race T-shirt. My most memorable race was in 2009 when the Pumpkin Run went overseas. With help from Sycamore native Nathan Taylor, the chamber organized a Pumpkin Run in Kuwait, almost 7,000 miles from Sycamore. Taylor, a chief petty officer in the U.S. Navy Reserve, was on active duty in Kuwait when he reached out to me and asked if we could work together to coordinate a Sycamore Pumpkin Run in Kuwait. At first I didn’t know what to think, but after a couple of emails I realized he was for real and simply wanted to

CHAMBER VIEW Rose Treml bring a little taste of home to his fellow service members. The chamber had about 200 special Pumpkin Run shirts made for the soldiers, sailors and airmen stationed in Kuwait who wanted to participate. We also sent more than 200 official race bibs for the runners. They ended up having about 70 fellow service men and women participate in the race and about 15 Australians who also ran. After Taylor’s deployment ended, the chamber invited him to be the VIP Race Starter for the 2010 Run. Our volunteers are what has made the event so successful over the years. We could not do it without two families in particular. The Schramers on Airport Road and Mr. and Mrs. Bert Fredrick on Somonauk Street organize our two water stations. We also work very closely with the National Guardsmen and the Armory as well as Pam Nelson with Sycamore schools, who organizes volun-

teers for the water stations. They are all great that day! The runners also make our race special. We have groups that run for their special cause; most recently Feed My Starving Children Mobile Food Pack, which is held in November and a Breast Cancer Awareness group. Local businesses have encouraged employees to run together as a group. And because the race is so close to Halloween, we also have many runners who come dressed in costume. Don’t miss out on one of the best races in Illinois. Visit www.sycamorepumpkinrun. com or call the Sycamore Chamber of Commerce at 815895-3456 to learn more about this year’s event. You also can visit our Facebook fan page and share photos and comments with other runners.

Be aware of motorcyclists

Obama’s ‘red line’ undermines U.S. power Blunder after blunder. That’s been the story of President Barack Obama’s policy toward Syria. In April 2011, Obama said dictator Bashir al-Assad “had to go,” but he did little or nothing to speed him on his way. At an Aug. 20, 2012, news conference, in campaign season, he was asked about Syria’s chemical weapons and said “a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus.” On Aug. 21, 2013, a year and a day afterward, chemical weapons were used in large quantities in the Damascus suburbs a 20-minute drive from United Nations inspectors. Last week, all signs – strong statements by Secretary of State John Kerry, leaks of detailed military plans – indicated that Obama would soon order what he described as “a shot across the bow.” But on Aug. 31, he announced that he would ask Congress to pass a resolution authorizing the use of military force – even though he believed he had authority to do it unilaterally. That meant more delay – Congress assembled Monday – time for Assad to put his military assets out of harm’s way. There are strong arguments for voting against an attack on Syria. Obama’s “limited, tailored” approach seems certain not to destroy Assad’s chemical weapons and may well not deter him from using them. And we have the president’s word that he is not seeking “regime change.” In the unlikely event that air strikes do undermine the Assad regime, we have no assurance that an alternative would be preferable. Al-Qaida sympathizers may gain the upper hand. At the same time, there are strong

VIEWS Michael Barone arguments against a vote countering a resolution. Undermining the power of even a feckless American president risks undermining the power of the presidency – and of America – for years. Crossing a president’s “red line,” however improvidently drawn, should carry consequences, however limited. Many in Congress, and not just Republicans, surely resent being called upon to authorize an action that public opinion polls indicate is widely unpopular, particularly among the independent voters who can determine election outcomes in many states and congressional districts. If a vote were taken this week, the resolution would be rejected – just as a similar resolution was, unexpectedly, rejected Aug. 29 in the British House of Commons. Some Democrats want the resolution to strictly limit the president, while Republicans like Sen. John McCain want a broader permit that would allow for regime change. Presidents usually prevail on issues like this, where they can argue that national security is at stake, and the administration can probably round up enough votes in the democratic-majority Senate. That will be much harder in the Republican-majority House. Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have both endorsed a resolution. But Boehner and Democrat Chris Van Hollen have both called this a conscience vote and said their parties will not whip the issue. The White House will have to do

the hard work of rounding up the votes. Last week, the Washington Post listed only 17 House members favoring military action and 130 opposed or leaning against. Most House Democrats voted against the Iraq War resolution in October 2002, when most voters favored it. Their party has dovish instincts going back to the Vietnam War and has been largely ignored by the administration since it lost its House majority in 2010. House Republicans, the object of Obama’s continued denunciations and disdain, are not inclined to trust him at all. Many surely believe they’re being set up as fall guys for a president whose chief political goal is regaining the House majority for Democrats in 2014. That suspicion was surely enhanced in Sweden on Wednesday when Obama said, “I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line.” But the world is not clamoring to enforce it. The only nation contemplating joining the United States in military action is France. That’s 38 fewer allies than joined the United States after the supposed unilateralist George W. Bush, with congressional authorization, ordered troops into Iraq. Former Bush administration official Elliott Abrams has argued that Obama’s foreign policy is designed to restrain and reduce America’s power in the world. The twists and turns of his policy toward Syria certainly seem to be having that effect. • Michael Barone, senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner, is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a Fox News Channel contributor and a co-author of The Almanac of American Politics.

Middle East solution: To stop Iran, stop Syria BY STEPHEN J. HADLEY The Washington Post The Arab Awakening has caused a crisis in the Middle East that will take years to sort out. There is one Middle East crisis, however, that must be resolved in months, not years. Every American committed to preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon should urge Congress to grant President Barack Obama authority to use military force against the Assad regime in Syria. The inauguration of Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s new president, offers some hope of a diplomatic settlement that eliminates the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran. But Rouhani will need the approval of Iran’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, who has made confrontation with the United States the centerpiece

of his rule. Only internal pressure and the threat of U.S. military action will cause Khamenei to accept a nuclear deal. That is why Presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton have emphasized that all options – including the use of military force – are on the table. Bashar Assad has repeatedly and flagrantly crossed a U.S. “red line” by using chemical weapons against his own people. If the United States does not take military action, how credible will be the U.S. threat to use military force if the Iranian regime continues to pursue nuclear weapons? If that threat is not credible, then only months from now our nation could face the prospect of accepting a nuclear-armed Iran or having to resort to military force to prevent it. If the Obama administration had aggressively trained and

armed moderate elements of the Syrian opposition during the past 18 months, our country probably would not have to contemplate military action now. But one does not have to concur with past Syria policy to agree that, once established, U.S. red lines cannot be crossed without consequence. Enforcing the red line against chemical weapons use is not the only U.S. national interest at stake in Syria. There is the moral claim presented by a humanitarian disaster that has killed more than 100,000 people, created more than 2 million refugees and internally displaced an additional 4 million people. Refugee flows and the increasingly sectarian conflict could destabilize Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan and Turkey – creating a regional war pitting Sunni against Shiite. There is the real prospect of al-Qaida establishing

a haven in Syria from which to launch attacks against U.S. allies – and Americans. Or Iran and its Hezbollah allies could succeed in saving the Assad regime and establishing a broader hegemony in the Middle East, thereby threatening U.S. allies, including Israel. To protect these U.S. interests, U.S. military action in Syria must go beyond a few missile strikes designed to deter or degrade future chemical weapons use. It must be robust enough to erode the Syrian regime’s military advantage. Otherwise, lack of U.S. military action in Syria will be read as a victory by Iran – making a nuclear-armed Iran and Iranian hegemony more likely. • Stephen J. Hadley was national security adviser in the George W. Bush administration.

Late summer and early fall in northern Illinois offer the perfect weather for outdoor activities – including exploring the back roads on a motorcycle. Unfortunately, there are dangers that are particular to riding motorcycles, which helps to explain why motorcycle-related deaths are on the rise in Illinois. Data from the Illinois Department of Transportation indicate fatal motorcycle accidents increased statewide by 13 percent from 2010 (131 deaths) to 2012 (148 deaths). State officials say that 110 of the 145 people who died in 2011 were not wearing helmets. DeKalb County has been fortunate in that there has not been a fatal accident involving a motorcycle since 2010, when three people were killed, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation’s Division of Traffic Safety. But if the number of fatalities continue to rise, it will be only a matter of time. Part of the rise in fatalities For the record is caused by the simple fact that more people are riding With more motorcycle motorcycles.

Motorcycle safety in Illinois is a common-sense issue, but not a legislative issue. For their own safety, motorcyclists must know and practice the rules of the road. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation lists on its website five key messages for riders: • Get trained and licensed; • Wear protective gear – all the gear, all the time – including a helmet manufactured to the standards set by the department of transportation; • Ride unimpaired by alcohol or other drugs; • Ride within your own skill limits; • Be a lifelong learner by taking refresher rider courses. Of course, all the helmets and safety classes in the world will not protect a motorcyclist from reckless automobile drivers. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation has these tips for automobile drivers regarding motorcycles: • Take an extra moment to look for motorcycles, whether you’re changing lanes or turning at intersections; • Allow more following distance for motorcycles; • Understand that motorcyclists adjust lane position for a purpose, not to be reckless or show off or to allow you to share the lane with them; • Don’t expect a motorcyclist to always be able to dodge out of the way.

GOP stymies reform Those seeking a standard-bearer for the do-nothing Congress need look no farther than Rep. Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican. When it comes to delay, denial and delusion, Goodlatte is an exemplar. Goodlatte is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, which handles measures to overhaul the nation’s badly broken immigration system. The Senate, with support from Democrats and some Republicans, approved broad immigration legislation in June. But Goodlatte and his Republican colleagues have declared it dead on arrival in the GOP-led House – even though it would likely have the votes for passage if it were allowed on the floor for a vote. Instead, Goodlatte’s panel has passed a handful of piecemeal immigration bills, all of which avoid the main issue, which is what to do about the 11 million immigrants living illegally in the United States. Those bills passed without Democratic support and stand no chance of success on the House floor, where some Republican lawmakers are wary of voting for any immigration bill, no matter how narrow, for fear it could become a vehicle for compromise (gasp!) with the Senate. All this is fine with Goodlatte, who told the Wall Street Journal that it’s OK to simply debate the immigration mess without doing anything to fix it. “We pass bills all the time that don’t get passed all the way through and signed into law, because we want to spell out to the American people what we think the right solutions to our problems are,” he said. “I don’t believe immigration reform should be any different than that.” As it happens, Goodlatte has a long track record of opposing meaningful immigration reform, including legislation to extend a path of citizenship to undocumented youngsters who grew up in the United States after being brought into the country as children by their parents. He is part of a Republican caucus in the House that prefers to allow the immigration problem to fester than embrace any solution that includes a path to citizenship, derided as amnesty, for 11 million undocumented immigrants. After repeated delays, GOP leaders said this summer that they expected to bring immigration legislation to the House floor in September. Now they say the agenda looks too crowded. They should reconsider. With millions of hardworking immigrants and their children waiting to leave the shadows, an empty legislative process is not good enough. – 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

Couple wanting private time must stand up Dear Abby: I am a 75-yearold man who lives in a gated community. For the last eight months I have been seeing a woman who lives nearby. We are starting to fall in love. Our problem is her 95-year-old mother, who lives with her. Her mom is pretty healthy and has some money, but she’s scared to be left alone. Because of this, my lady and I have difficulty finding private time. We get out for short periods, but we’d like to go away for a weekend together. If we suggest it, Mom makes a stink and gets nasty with her daughter. We have tried talking with her about it, but she refuses, sulks and won’t talk for days. She’s suffering from slight dementia, but gets around OK

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips with a walker. Mom claims she doesn’t want or need a “grandma sitter.” She wants only her daughter to take care of her and be with her. Any help would be appreciated. – Courting Trouble in Arizona Dear Courting: If your lady friend wants to have any life of her own, she will have to stiffen her spine and deal with Mama. This includes not allowing her mother’s sulking to prevent the two of you from having an occasional weekend together. She should contact assisted-living facilities in the area

and find out if they will accept guests for short stays of only a few days or a week. If the answer is yes, Mama should be offered a choice: Either someone comes to stay with her while you’re gone, a friend perhaps, or she will have to stay elsewhere because being alone is not an option. Dear Abby: My brother died earlier this year due to an overdose. His wife and one of my sisters lived with him. They also gave him the drugs that caused his death. Abby, they are treating Mom, my husband and me like dirt. Mom had no say in the funeral at all. You would think that since she was the mother, the wife would have included her. They have been having parties ever since

the funeral and spending the money left and right, while not paying the mortgage on the house. They have turned my other sister against us, blocked us on social media and cut us off completely. They also turned another part of the family against us. I know it involves drug abuse on the part of all of them. We didn’t do anything to them other than bring forth evidence of what they did and confront them. I have no idea how to trust or to build a relationship with them again if they ever decide to come back into our lives. It’s painful to deal with a death, and then more trials on top of that. Any advice? – Brokenhearted in Tampa, Fla.

Dear Brokenhearted: I’m sorry for your loss, but please recognize that when relatives are as dysfunctional as yours, it’s safer for you, your husband and your mother to MOVE ON. And if they do decide to come back into your lives, for the sake of your sanity, run the other way. Dear Abby: Are there any letters or topics you won’t touch with a 10-foot pole? – Just Wondering Dear Wondering: None come to mind. At one point or another, this column has addressed darn near everything and may have offended almost everyone. • Write Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Cut down on the sugar without replacing it Dear Dr. K: I want to cut down on sugar in my diet. Are artificial sweeteners the answer? Dear Reader: You’re wise to reduce the amount of sugar you consume. Sugar, particularly added sugar in foods and beverages, leads to weight gain – and excess weight increases your risk of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and other health problems. Sugar comes in many forms, including honey, brown rice syrup, corn syrup and molasses. You want to limit all of them. Artificial sweeteners are sugar-free and typically lower in calories than sugar. All of the sweeteners on the market are considered safe. Earlier

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff reports linking saccharin and aspartame to cancer have been disproved. So artificial sweeteners might seem like a healthier option than sugar. But that idea is controversial. Dr. Michelle Hauser, certified chef, nutrition educator and clinical fellow in medicine at Harvard Medical School, explains it this way: On the one hand, artificial sweeteners such as aspartame (NutraSweet, Equal), saccharin (Sweet’N Low) and sucralose (Splenda) can reduce

the number of calories in your diet. Obviously, that makes it easier for you to achieve or maintain a healthy weight. But artificial sweeteners are generally hundreds – or even thousands – of times sweeter than sugar. There is some evidence that they may make you crave sweets even more. I don’t regard that evidence as solid, but it is plausible. You can cut down on sugar without replacing it with artificial sweeteners. Here are some tips: • Don’t eliminate all sugary foods at once. You’ll only crave sweets more. • Keep sugary foods away. Don’t tempt yourself by keeping candy, cookies and soda

in your house. Stock your fruit bowl instead. • Retrain your taste buds. Eat a healthy diet made up of more satisfying foods – whole grains, fruits, vegetables, healthy oils and lean protein. • Sweeten foods yourself. Start with unsweetened iced tea, plain yogurt and unflavored oatmeal. Add your own sweetener in the smallest amounts to be satisfying. It may surprise you to see how little sugar you need to add. • Watch for hidden sugars. Read food labels to find out how much sugar is in the foods you buy. Avoid products that list sugar as the first ingredient or that contain several different types of sugar. Many of my patients try to

achieve or maintain a healthy weight by avoiding fats but ignore the importance of sugar. They’ve heard that, ounce for ounce, fat has more calories than sugar. That’s true, but there are healthy fats and unhealthy fats. It’s important to make that distinction. The unhealthy fats to avoid are saturated and trans fats. You can check for them on the Nutrition Facts label of packaged foods. The fats you need for health are monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats: Don’t avoid those. In contrast, generally avoiding foods rich in sugar is always a healthy choice.

My dad is a very undesirable person. I have the academic ability to attend college, but college is not in my future for many reasons. I’ve been dating Jake for about four months. He’s a nice guy, and I like him very much. He treats me wonderfully. Jake works in construction building houses and is paid well. About a month ago, he said it would be neat if we ran away and got married. I told him to wait until I graduate, and I would then consider it. I

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace really want to get out of my house, and I am seriously thinking about marrying Jake. I probably will never find a nicer guy. He is 21 and said he’s ready to settle down and start a family. My only problem is that I don’t love him. If I do marry him, in time, will “like” turn into “love”? I guess I’m inquiring if I should marry Jake and try to live happily ever after. He really does love me. – Nameless, Salt Lake City, Utah

8ASTROGRAPH By BERNICE BEDE OSOL Newspaper Enterprise Association

TODAY – Backtracking will enable you to make greater accomplishments in the coming months. If you look to some old professional relationships, you’ll discover new opportunities. Continue to develop your many talents and you’ll find profitable ways to use them. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Discussions will lead to all sorts of interesting offers. Share your thoughts and look for someone who shares your sentiments. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Don’t let laziness or lack of insight cost you your reputation or your position. Now’s the time for you to stick to the rules and the game plan. Don’t make waves. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – You’re in a good cycle for socializing and networking. Engage in unusual pastimes that inspire you to explore your talents and develop relationships with imaginative and motivational comrades. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Keep your story straight. Undue embellishment will come back to haunt you. You need to put more emphasis on fixing up your personal space or finding concrete ways to lower your costs. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Take initiative and show courage when dealing with responsibilities. Your reputation will be directly linked to what you produce and how you carry out your duties. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – You may face a conflict between your personal desires and your workload. Tend to your obligations before you move on to more enjoyable pastimes. Get as much done as you can as early in the day as possible. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Your unusual approach to financial, health or legal matters will leave a lasting impression. The right people are watching, so behave accordingly. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Consistency will be an issue today. Unpredictable situations will put added pressure on you to make a decision. Your best option is to find a physical way to blow off steam. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – If you’re facing a challenge, seek out people who’ve been in similar situations. An unusual offer could result if you take the initiative. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Live aggressively and make needed changes in your life. It’s time for you to step into the spotlight, and you’ll want to look your best. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Avoid disagreements. Consider the consequences that will result from the choice you make. By looking out for others, you will gain the support you need to follow your dreams. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Experience will be key when it comes to overcoming a challenge or besting an adversary. Problems due to personal responsibilities can be expected. Prepare to deal with such matters with compassion and diplomacy.

Nameless: You may not love him, or you may simply not be ready to marry and settle down. It sounds to me like you really would like to attend college. That may be more possible than you think. Even if it isn’t, it could be a goal that you work toward by finding a job and moving out on your own. To marry Jake simply to escape an unhappy home life is not a promising foundation for a successful marriage. If your home life had been wonderful and Jake had asked you to marry him, what would your answer have been? Let that be your answer about marrying him now.

8SUDOKU

Dr. Wallace: I have a crush on a certain girl, but she doesn’t know I exist. My older brother thinks I have a shot at dating her if I would send her a dozen red roses and sign it, “A Secret Admirer.” The next step would be to call her in a couple of days and tell her who her admirer is. I know girls like flowers. Does this sound like a good way to impress this girl? – Nameless, Vicksburg, Miss. Nameless: Girls do enjoy receiving flowers but not from “secret admirers.” Your brother’s plan is more likely to alarm than thrill her – the mystery guy might be a stalker, after all. Further-

more, girls rarely go out with guys they don’t know exist, so save your money and find the courage to talk to her in person. Once you’ve made her acquaintance, give her a call and ask her out. She’ll either say yes or no. If the answer is no, at least she knows you exist. Believe me, that’s far better than being in the position you’re in now. You may also realize it’s not all that hard to talk to girls once you get past the initial self-doubt. And eventually a wonderful young woman will say yes.

8CROSSWORD

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Do not leap before looking Edwin Percy Whipple, a 19th-century essayist, wrote, “Talent jogs to conclusions to which Genius takes giant leaps.” That is fine as long as Genius isn’t missing the mark, which can happen. Slowly reaching the right answer is much better than jumping to the wrong conclusion. In today’s deal, South is in three no-trump. West leads his fourth-highest spade. East wins with his ace and returns the two (lowest of three remaining cards). South wins with his king and cashes the club ace, but East discards a spade. How should declarer proceed from there? Also, what do you think of the bidding? Taking those questions in reverse order, South should open two no-trump. He has 21 prime points with so many aces and kings. To open one diamond and rebid three clubs would probably work fine here, but it would risk missing a slam because partner would not expect such a powerful hand. The bad club break is bothersome, but might South still take nine tricks? Yes, if he can collect one spade, three hearts, three diamonds and two clubs. This seems to require the diamond finesse. And that is a favorite, given that West started with five spades and four clubs. (The odds have gone up from 50 to 69 percent.) However, here, if Genius immediately takes his three hearts tricks ending on the board and plays a diamond to his jack, he goes down. The talented player cashes his diamond ace first, just in case West started with a singleton queen. You never know!

Q&A WITH NORTHERN ILLINOIS ATHLETIC DIRECTOR SEAN FRAZIER

At a critical point in NIU’s evolution Daily Chronicle sports reporter Steve Nitz sat down with new Northern Illinois athletic director Sean Frazier for a question-and-answer session covering various topics. The following is an edited transcript:

What were your initial impressions of the athletic department when you got the job, and have you set any short-term goals? My initial impression was obviously loads of potential, but more importantly, there’s a deep embedded professionalism as well as great balance between academics and athletics. I saw the balance. I’ve had lots of coaches who we’ve tried to attract to Wisconsin and folks that have left Wisconsin to go to Northern. It’s not a place that snuck up on me on any level. I’ve known since I’ve been in the Midwest what NIU represented, and I’ve had some great colleagues that were

Any other plans in place for More online The balance there being the getting involved in the community, and how important is that? For all your Northern Illinois University fact that if you look at the academics, straight raw academics, It’s huge.

We’re really at a critical point in our evolution here, both athletically and academically, where I want to add value to those areas. Football is going good, it needs to get better. Things of that same mantra, and I would go across the board in every sport, from tennis to gymnastics to baseball, what can we do? If conference championships have not been won, let’s win conference championships. If we’ve won conference championships, let’s win national titles.

rate, and then you take a look at the competition side of it, if you’re doing both of those, and you’re having success on both sides, there’s obviously a conscious intentional way of executing and making sure that your students are prepared in both ways. But then you talk to students. I’ve had lots of meetings with coaches and student-athletes, general students as well as faculty and staff, and you can tell, there is a robust intentional thought process to make sure that we have a family environment, that deals with the issues both social, as well as academically and athletically.

ing what this institution means to downtown, what it means to the region itself, is extremely important. That whole college town concept is just that. It’s about the shops and the business and the visitors bureau, and everything that is DeKalb, that is Sycamore, that is the surrounding communities. We need to embrace that.

Is there a certain type of a nonconference football schedule you would like to play? Yes, at the highest competitive level. I tweeted out a number of times, we will play anybody, any time, anywhere.

SPECIALIZATION IN YOUTH SPORTS: PART TWO

Every coach that I spoke to, they all loved the fact that I was a multisport athlete.” Brian Sisler NIU shortstop who played football, basketball and baseball at DeKalb

For some, being a multisport athlete more advantageous than specializing Note to readers: This is the second story in a three-part series focusing on specialization in youth sports and the decline in the number of multisport athletes in high school. By ANTHONY ZILIS sports@daily-chronicle.com

few times each week, when Emily Bemis’ teammates were packing their basketball shoes to go home after one of coach Ben Bates’ notoriously difficult DeKalb basketball practices, the 2011 Daily Chronicle Volleyball Player of the Year would drive to a small gym outside Geneva. There, she’d

practice with the Kane County Juniors volleyball club for a few hours before finally making the trek back to DeKalb. For most NCAA Division I college volleyball recruits, high school basketball is a workload that’s just too much to take on with the constant camps, games and practices. But Bemis didn’t see it that way. “It ended up being six hours, five hours on certain days. It was a long day,” said Bemis, who earned a scholarship to the University of Arizona, but transferred after her freshman year. “I kind of liked it because I feel like it made me a better athlete all around instead of focusing on just one sport, it kind of gives you

Although specialization is deemed necessary by many athletes and coaches, multisport athletes find

plenty of physical, social and mental benefits in their diverse athletic careers. Brian Sisler, a former three-sport athlete at DeKalb, said he thinks his high school athletic experience made him the athlete and leader he is today. Quitting one sport would have been a recipe for remorse for the Northern Illinois shortstop. “I don’t regret my decision at all,” the 2011-12 Daily Chronicle Male Athlete of the Year said. “When I talk to people who quit basketball or they quit a certain sport, I talk to them now when they’re done with high school sports and they all say, ‘Oh, I wish I would’ve stuck with that.’ ”

• • • Base runners only turn left. Hitters usually only swing one way. Pitchers only work one arm. NIU baseball coach Ed Mathey says the physical benefits of playing multiple sports are obvious, and that’s just one of the reasons he prefers recruiting multisport athletes. “You find a lot of injuries occur when one side of the body is stronger than the other half of the body,” Mathey said. “I think guys that tend to be more balanced – right side, left side, top half, lower half, front half, back half – tend to hold up better.”

Cutler earns a solid B in opener

H. Rick Bamman – hbamman@shawmedia.com

The tale of the tape of the Bears’ 24-21 Week 1 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals allows us to begin forming some conclusions about where this 2013 model of the “Monsters of the Midway” might be heading. Jay Cutler played well with a definite understanding of what he was trying to accomplish, the big-time arm and athletic ability in flashes that we keep waiting to see totally unleashed and a minimum of the body language that often fuels his detractors. He did, of course, give us a Cutler moment, the inexplicable toss to Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict at a critical juncture of the

MID-AMERICAN CONFERENCE FOOTBALL NOTES

MLB

Fleck’s Broncos in rough waters talking about the Iowa game and I told her, I said, ‘Hey, we’re not playing Iowa again, we’ve got Idaho,’ ” Carey said. “I’m sure if I was getting that at home, I’m sure [the players] were getting that. So we had to turn the page. And that’s why I think probably some of it was an advantage, to give us that time. “My message was turn the page. We’re 1-0, that’s all we are.”

Carey, NIU turn focus to Idaho By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com It’s been an ugly start to the season for P.J. Fleck and the Western Michigan football team. Western is faced with a brutal nonconference schedule this year, having to play games at Michigan State (where the Broncos lost 26-13 in Week 1), Northwestern and Iowa. In WMU’s lone home nonconference game, the Broncos took on an FCS Nicholls State team that went just 1-10 last season. Despite outgaining the Colonels 484-447 in yards, recording 12 more first downs and winning the turnover battle, Fleck’s team lost 27-23 in the former Northern Illinois wideout’s home debut. “We didn’t deserve to win the football game. Nicholls came out and put us in a 21-3 deficit after three possessions, and we dug ourselves a hole,” Fleck said during Monday’s Mid-American Conference coaches teleconference. “One thing about this football team is we need to learn how to win. We’re very young, very inexperienced. Not an excuse, we know who we are and we are who we are, and we’ve got to keep getting better on a daily basis, and we will.” It certainly won’t get any easier for Western this week, when the Broncos head to Evanston to take on No. 17 Northwestern.

Tipton could be done for season: Central Michigan was going to have a tough time competing in the MAC West. Things got even tougher when Chippewas tailback Zurlon Tipton suffered a broken ankle in the Chippewas’ Week 1 loss at Michigan. Tipton, who ran for 1,492 yards last season, could be done for the season. Central Michigan nearly was beaten by FCS New Hampshire this past weekend, escaping with a 24-21 win.

I will say that this is a real, significant focus of mine. I’ve taken it personally. I’ve lived with it to the point where my wife is saying I might need to check myself a little bit because I’m so passionate on football scheduling, because I’ve done it in such a large degree at Wisconsin. It is a relationship business, football scheduling. I really feel confident that I will be able to move that thing in the right direction.

NASCAR SPRINT CUP

Newman replaces Truex in chase By JENNA FRYER The Associated Press

SPRINT CUP SERIES Geico 400 Race time: 1 p.m. Sunday Site: Chicagoland Speedway, Joliet TV: ESPN

CONCORD, N.C. – While Clint Bowyer’s spin got all the attention at Richmond, a few questions from a puzzled Brian Vickers and the promise of a post-race kiss led to one hefty punishment from NASCAR. Ryan Newman replaced Martin Truex Jr. in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship Monday night when NASCAR penalized Michael Waltrip Racing for manipulating the outcome of last weekend’s race. Michael Waltrip Racing was fined $300,000, and general manager Ty Norris received an indefinite suspension. Truex, Bowyer and Vickers were docked 50 points apiece – but Bowyer’s deduction does not affect his position in the Chase, which begins Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway. “We penalize to not have this happen again,” NASCAR president Mike Helton said. “It’s a message from the league saying, ‘You can’t do this.’ ” Newman was leading with seven laps remaining Saturday night at Richmond, where a victory would have given him the final spot in the 12-driver Chase field. But Bowyer spun to bring out a caution, setting in motion a chain of events that ultimately led to Newman losing the race and Bowyer teammate Truex earning the final Chase berth. While examining the situation, NASCAR reviewed communication between Bowyer and his Michael Waltrip Racing crew that seemed to indicate the spin was deliberate, as well as additional evidence that suggested MWR had Bowyer and Vickers take a dive over the final three laps so Joey Logano would knock Jeff Gordon out of Chase contention in yet another attempt to help Truex. NASCAR did not adjust the standings to put Gordon into the Chase – he was in before Bowyer’s spin – because Helton said it was impossible to address all the scenarios.

Stewart is recovering from a broken leg. “We know from experience, if you try to look at ripple effect, you can’t cover all bases that’s equitable and credible across board,” said Helton, who also said NASCAR was unable to prove Bowyer spun intentionally. “There’s a lot of chatter, but we didn’t see any conclusive evidence.” The AP reviewed team communications for Bowyer and Vickers on Sunday, and Vickers was told by Norris to pit because “we need that one point.” “We’re probably going to pit here on green,” Norris says. “Are you talking to me?” a surprised Vickers asks. Vickers continued to question the call, at one point asking, “I don’t understand, pit right now?” “You’ve got to pit this time. We need that one point,” Nor-

ris replies. “10-4. Do I got a tire going down?” Vickers asked. Vickers then pitted as the field went green. When he asked after if his crew found anything with the tire, Norris replied, “I’ll see you after the race, Brian, I owe you a kiss.” Helton indicated Monday that conversation between Norris and Vickers, with Vickers’ confusion over the directives he was given, was the smoking gun against MWR. “Ty Norris confirmed the conversation most everyone has heard with the 55 driver,” Helton said. Waltrip also mentioned the sequence when he apologized in a statement Monday night. “What occurred on the No. 55 radio at the end of Saturday night’s race in Richmond was a

split-second decision made by team spotter Ty Norris to bring the No. 55 to pit lane and help a teammate earn a place in the Chase,” he said. “We regret the decision and its impact.” Gordon’s reaction to NASCAR’s ruling focused on Truex, who did nothing to land in his teammates’ mess, and Bowyer, who escaped unscathed. “Feel bad for Truex. He got in under controversy now out due to it. But the guy who started all of this not effected at all??? Don’t agree!” Gordon posted on Twitter. Bowyer denied Saturday night he intentionally spun and Truex was an unwitting participant. Waltrip said the team will learn from what happened and move on. “As general manager, Ty Norris has been an integral part of Michael Waltrip Racing since its founding and has my and (co-owner) Rob Kauffman’s full support,” Waltrip said. The controversy surrounding Saturday’s race put a damper on Newman’s Monday announcement that he had reached a deal with Richard Childress Racing to replace Jeff Burton next season in the No. 31 Chevrolet. “What happened to me Saturday night is the toughest thing that I’ve ever gone through in any kind of racing in my 30 years of driving because of the way everything went down,” Newman said. Now Newman gets the chance to compete for the title in his final races with Stewart-Haas Racing. He won the Brickyard this year and has 17 career victories overall. “Obviously, we’re very pleased with NASCAR’s decision to provide Ryan Newman’s rightful place in this year’s Chase,” SHR co-owner Tony Stewart said in a statement. “NASCAR was put in a very difficult position Saturday night at Richmond and we commend the sanctioning body for taking the time to do the necessary due diligence to ensure that the right call was made.”

Sycamore quarterback Devin Mottet looks for an open receiver during the first quarter of the Spartans’ 54-20 win over North Lawndale on Friday night in Sycamore.

DeKalb running back Dre Brown was bottled up for most of Friday’s 35-34 loss as Hampshire was focused on stopping him. But Brown was able to show off the breakaway speed and agility that have made him a high-level NCAA Division I recruit when he broke open a 59-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. “We changed things up just to get him the ball and he broke one,” Barbs coach Matt Weckler said. “A lot of times, the yards he gets, he gets on his own. He breaks a tackle, or he makes a move and makes them miss.” Brown only mustered 83 yards, but the opposing defense’s focus on the junior helped the

rest of the Barbs offense. The Barbs gained 155 passing yards, and the attention Hampshire paid to Brown might have had something to do with it. “Dre is such a good kid that he knows they’re going to take him away,” Weckler said. “Basically, we played some good team football. They took him away and we threw the ball well. It shows that we’re really not one-dimensional, which is good.” McNeal progressing: Griffin McNeal gave Genoa-Kingston a chance to win Friday. With the Cogs trailing in the fourth quarter, the eventual 29-27 loss at Rockford Lutheran became a passing affair. McNeal was able to complete 14 of his 25 passing attempts for 159 yards, and he threw for two big fourth-quarter touchdowns and had a number

of key third-down conversions. Often, McNeal kept plays alive with his feet, including his two-point conversion pass to Sal Lopez in the second quarter when McNeal danced around before finding Lopez in the end zone. “He’s smart; he’s a football player,” G-K coach Travis Frederick said. “He gets down on himself at times. He’s just got to learn to stay within himself, take what they’re giving you, and just keep battling, and he did. He also made some mistakes, some mental errors. That’s just fatigue, getting banged up, stuff like that. Tight game pressure. He’s going to get better and better every week, I know it.”

Close losses sting for DeKalb, Genoa-Kingston The feeling couldn’t have been more familiar for Genoa-Kingston and DeKalb in Week 2. Both teams fought to rally in the fourth quarter on the road, but the end result didn’t come up in their favor as the the two teams lost by a combined three points. One play here, one play there and both postgame bus rides carry an entirely different mood. Close, early season losses have been all too common for the Cogs and Barbs over the past two seasons. G-K lost to St. Edward, 1514, in the 2012 season opener, and

VIEWS Ross Jacobson DeKalb lost each of its first two games in 2012 by single digits. For any high school team, close losses sting. For two programs looking to end short playoff droughts – both last qualifying in 2010 – they hurt five times more. It’s only Week 3, way too early to start eliminating teams from

playoff contention. But taking a look at the challenging schedules DeKalb and G-K face, those Week 2 losses could loom large as the difference between playing a 10th game or not. G-K still has five games against teams that posted winning records in 2012. The one positive for the Cogs is they have four remaining home games. DeKalb starts to navigate the always-tough Northern Illinois Big 12 East with a matchup against Sycamore on Friday. Included in the Barbs’ schedule are

two teams ranked in the top five of The Associated Press Class 5A poll and a 2012 5A state finalist. Sometimes teams have to learn to win close games before they actually can win them. The Barbs and Cogs are hoping class is finished. Week 3 provides a great chance for each team to put last Friday behind them.

DeKalb’s Brown contemplating return to basketball court • MULTISPORT Continued from page B1 While some high school players spend ample time in a batting cage over the winter months and others play game after game for their travel teams, Mathey likes to go after recruits who have the highest ceiling – the more athletic kids who haven’t tapped their potential. “I think [college coaches] like multi-sport guys,” Mathey said. “They like guys who see things from different perspectives. Let’s say a guy plays basketball, he’s got different lateral quickness abilities than baseball guys do, and that plays out a lot of ways in baseball that you can’t train in baseball.” NIU women’s soccer coach John Ross rarely comes across multisport athletes when scouting, but he knows soccer players who play basketball are likely to be more athletic, which can be an indicator of future success. “We always say basketball is a good crossover sport because there are a lot of good athletes playing basketball,” Ross said. “The more athletic you are, the easier it is for you to play two sports.” Although Bemis missed out on some time on the volleyball court and a few chances at college exposure, her legs told her that playing basketball made her better. “I think it worked different muscles, which I noticed because I was always sore after volleyball, no matter how much volleyball I did,” Bemis said. “I think overall it helped me become a better athlete.” • • • Sisler knew baseball would be his sport of the future when the DeKalb coaches told him he’d garnered interest from college coaches after his sophomore year. “They told me that I had the most potential in baseball and I listened to that a little bit,” said Sisler, who also was a point guard on the basketball team and a quarterback on the football team. “They knew I could play at the highest level in baseball rather than the other sports because I was a little too slow and a little too small for football and basketball.” At that moment, Sisler easily could have decided to focus on baseball, and few would have faulted him. But he didn’t, and he thinks he benefitted from the decision. “Every coach that I spoke to, they all loved the fact that I was a multisport athlete,” Sisler said. “Coach Mathey told me that that was one of the reasons [he recruited me]. … It really helps as far as leadership qualities go because you’re dealing with different types of people.” Mathey noticed Sisler was different from some of his fellow freshmen when he arrived on campus last year. Sisler seemed to fit in with his older teammates right away, and Mathey suspects that Sisler’s experience as a quarterback

DeKalb junior running back Dre Brown rushes past two padded blockers during the first day of football practice Aug. 14 in DeKalb. Brown made the difficult decision to sit out the basketball season last year as his college football recruitment heated up. But Brown, who ran track during his freshman and sophomore years, remembers the joy of playing a sport just for fun.

“I never once thought about quitting the other two just to specialize in one. I think the problem now is that a lot of people are so worried or caught up in getting a scholarship in that one sport, and I think a lot of the time they miss the big picture of it all, which is to go out there and have fun and enjoy the opportunity that you’ve been given.” Brian Sisler

NIU shortstop who played football, basketball and baseball at DeKalb and a point guard at DeKalb helped him become well-adjusted. “When you’re playing three sports, you become a little more well-rounded in terms of being able to deal with different types of personalities,” Mathey said. “Brian was one of those guys that, immediately when he came into the program, just got along with everybody, the seniors and the upperclassmen liked him right away.” • • • Dave Dudzinski considered quitting baseball. The Kaneland alum, who plays basketball for Holy Cross, had to make plenty of compromises during the spring, when he’d regularly drive to Naperville after baseball games to go to AAU basketball practice. But every time he took the baseball field, he noticed, he had fun. So he stuck out the busy spring and played both sports for four years to the surprise of college coaches. “It was just so much fun to be out there with some of my best friends on the baseball field,” he said. “I think one thing high school

kids need to realize is that if you like something, you don’t have to focus only on it. You can play other sports and have fun. You have to work on your speed, your fitness and get stronger, and that’s stuff that translates across sports.” The benefits of specialization aren’t lost on DeKalb junior running back Dre Brown, who made the difficult decision to sit out the basketball season last year as his college football recruitment heated up. But Brown, who ran track during his freshman and sophomore years, remembers the joy of playing a sport just for fun. So after picking up several scholarship offers and interest from BCS schools across the country, he’s decided to consider playing basketball this year. “Now that I’m an upperclassman, I can do basketball or fun things because I have colleges looking at me for football,” Brown said. If his high school career is anything like Bemis’, he won’t regret taking that time to have fun with a sport in high school when he solely

focuses on football at a Division I college. Bemis realized the extent to which she missed basketball last year when the Southwestern fall turned into winter. “I enjoyed it because it gave me a break from just doing constant volleyball, which is what really hits me now because I’m always doing volleyball and I’m not in basketball,” Bemis said. “It was nice to have another sport. ... It lets you kind of focus on something fun in athletics.” Many athletes have become so absorbed in nabbing scholarship offers that fun can take a back seat to success in high school sports. “The cycle of life has changed from being a kid and then being an athlete,” former DeKalb volleyball coach Stephanie Gooden said. “Now I’ve got to be an athlete and then I’ll think about being a kid when I have time.” Sisler can’t deny the reality that some of his NIU teammates improved from playing club baseball. He knows that specialization in baseball can help raise a batting average or attract the eyes of a few college coaches. But the fundamental reason Sisler plays sports in the first place wasn’t about gaining a scholarship, winning a certain amount of games or even hitting for a particular average. “I never once thought about quitting the other two just to specialize in one,” he said. “I think the problem now is that a lot of people are so worried or caught up in getting a scholarship in that one sport, and I think a lot of the time they miss the big picture of it all, which is to go out there and have fun and enjoy the opportunity that you’ve been given.”

Mom’s cellphone video has lingering effects Dear Abby: My 13-year-old son, “Wiley,” was playing a game on my cellphone. I stupidly forgot to delete a short video of myself engaged in a sex act with my ex-husband, “Cliff.” Wiley didn’t confront me or mention it, but given his sudden change in behavior, I’m almost certain he saw it. The next morning I mentioned it and apologized, hoping we could get past the awkwardness, but Wiley wouldn’t admit this is what’s bothering him. He acted as if he didn’t know what I was talking about. Now he’s shutting down. He

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips won’t talk to me. He’s off in his own world as if I’m a stranger, where a few days before we would laugh, share and trust each other. I divorced Cliff because he and my son didn’t get along, but in the last six months we have been secretly having an affair and we ultimately want to get back together when Wiley is 18. My son doesn’t approve of him and he’s an-

gry about it. I’m worried and embarrassed that he saw me doing what I was doing in that few seconds of video, and I don’t want to scar him or have him think differently of me. Wiley’s father has been no help, and I suspect adds fuel to our son’s anger during his weekend visitations. I tried therapy for Wiley – it didn’t help. Do you have any suggestions? – Mortified in Arizona Dear Mortified: I’m printing your letter because, once again, it illustrates the danger of putting videos of a sexual nature on cellphones. I

can think of few people of any age who don’t prefer to think of themselves as products of immaculate conception, and your son is no exception. Because Cliff and Wiley’s relationship was so poor the three of you couldn’t coexist under one roof, discovering that you are once more intimately involved with your ex must have been traumatic and threatening to Wiley. It might reassure him to know that your seeing Cliff does not mean you will be living together anytime soon. In the meantime, I recommend that YOU talk with a

therapist to help you cope with the changed relationship you now have with your son. It’s a shame that Wiley’s father has used this unfortunate incident for his own selfish purposes. Divorced couples MUST remember that they have to love their child more than they hate each other.

Mitral valve prolapse rarely requires work Dear Dr. K: I have mitral valve prolapse. What does this mean? And why don’t I need treatment for it? Dear Reader: The heart is made up of four chambers. Normally, the upper two chambers (the atria) fill with blood, then pump blood into the lower two chambers (the ventricles). Next, the ventricles pump blood to the rest of the body. The mitral valve is the physical doorway between the heart’s left atrium and left ventricle. The valve has two leaflets. When it’s working properly, the mitral valve opens to let blood flow “forward” – from the left atrium down into the left ventricle. The two leaflets drop down into

atrium. (I’ve put an illustration of a prolapsed mitral valve on my website.) The result is that small amounts of blood leak back into the left atrium. It sounds serious, but in most people it the left ventricle. But when actually has very little effect the left ventricle then pumps on the heart’s overall ability the blood out to the body, the mitral valve closes, to prevent to pump blood.

a doctor hears a certain clicking sound during a routine physical examination. This abnormal heart sound is related to the malfunction of the mitral valve. If you have mitral valve prolapse but do not have any symptoms, you will not need treatment. In the past, doctors recommended that people with mitral valve prolapse take antibiotics prior to certain surgical procedures and dental appointments, but the American Heart Association no longer recommends this. If mitral valve prolapse develops into severe mitral regurgitation, you may need to have the abnormal mitral valve surgically repaired or replaced.

Mitral valve prolapse has almost surely been present in human beings for tens of thousands of years, but we discovered it only about 50 years ago. Initially, doctors worried that it was a serious, even life-threatening, condition. However, as has been true of many newly discovered conditions and diseases, we first recognize it in the people who have the most severe forms of it. As we find out more about it, we learn that many people with the condition have nothing to worry about.

People in Poland, Greece, Ireland smoke most Dr. Wallace: I’m 19 and so is my boyfriend. I was smoking a pack of cigarettes per day when I met my boyfriend two years ago. I stopped smoking then because my boyfriend is a non-smoker, and he asked me to please stop smoking, and I did. It was a difficult task, but with his help, I succeeded and we are both very happy now.

Knowing your parents’ sensibilities, I wouldn’t flaunt the Book of Mormon at them or read it in their presence. In a lot of families, unfortunately, religion is a volatile topic. This is aggravated by the fact that so many religions insist that they, alone, are right. That’s a shame, because it makes a young person’s legitimate questioning and exploration seem suspect.

8CROSSWORD

Try to anticipate the unusual Elbert Hubbard was a writer, publisher, artist and philosopher who died when the Germans torpedoed the RMS Lusitania in 1915. He said, “If pleasures are greatest in anticipation, remember that this is also true of trouble.” Bridge players take great pleasure in making a contract after correctly anticipating trouble in the form of unfavorable distribution. In today’s deal, South is in four hearts. West leads the spade ace and continues with the spade queen. After ruffing, how should declarer continue? North’s takeout double was flexible, unlike a two-club overcall. Also, note South’s jump to four hearts. This showed a relatively weak hand with a lot of hearts. With a very strong hand, South would have started with a two-diamond cue-bid. South hopes to take five hearts and five clubs. But he must realize that he might first concede one spade, one heart and two diamonds. However, he can lose two diamonds only if East gains the lead. Declarer must work to stop East from winning a trick. So, at trick three, when South leads a low heart from his hand, he should anticipate West’s playing the king. And if he does, South must go low from the dummy, letting West take the trick. Then everything is under control. Finally, if you would have bid (a very risky) one spade with that East hand over North’s double, you would have reached four spades, which cannot be defeated. Also, if West doubles over four hearts, East might advance to four spades. (Rebidding four spades over four hearts is debatable, being less flexible than doubling.) Once again, bridge is a bidder’s game.
