Northwest Herald Web Poll Question The Northwest Herald invites you to voice your opinion. Log on to www. and vote on today’s poll question:

All about CL, and positive waves “Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?” Oddball, played by Donald Sutherland, delivers this line to Moriarty, played by Gavin MacLeod, in the 1970 Clint Eastwood classic, “Kelly’s Heroes.” Seems like I’ve been spewing nothing but negative waves in this space lately, so I’ll take Oddball’s advice and try to stay righteous this week. I’ll start by congratulating the city of Crystal Lake, which kicked off its yearlong centennial celebration this weekend at Three Oaks Recreation Area. Crystal Lake was incorporated as a city in 1914. As we reported in a special section that our Crystal Lake-area readers received in Friday’s edition, the incorporation occurred when voters from two communities – the village of Crystal Lake and Nunda, later named North Crystal Lake – decided to join as one after years of discussion and failed votes. The Crystal Lake Herald, which joined with several other McHenry County newspapers to become the Northwest Herald in 1985, endorsed the consolidation and incorporation on its front page. I’m proud to call Crystal Lake home. My wife, two children and I have lived here for nearly nine years now. It’s a great place to live, work and raise a family. We love the schools (if not the property taxes – OK, my one mini-rant), the parks and, most of all, the people. The Northwest Herald looks forward to partnering with the city over the course of the next year to commemorate the centennial.

Public Library is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Beginning in the Dodge family home in November 1913, the library has grown over the decades and in 1999 was ranked 10th nationally among public libraries serving communities with population from 25,000 to 49,999. A reader last week took us to task in a letter to the editor for not providing enough coverage of a recent centennial library event. My apologies for that. We can always do better. I’m one of the 25,000 area residents who has a library card. We visit it regularly. Despite what Northwest Herald Friday page 2 columnist Dick Peterson might tell you, I’m a big fan. It’s another reason Crystal Lake is a great place to live. ••• See ya, TR: Longtime readers of my columns know I’m a big Cleveland-area sports fan. I was stunned – and outraged – last week when I heard the news that the Browns traded their best offensive player, running back Trent Richardson, to the Colts for a future draft pick. Talk about raising the white flag on the 2013 season. Looks like I’ll have some extra time on Sunday afternoons this fall. I might have to start working on catching up to the McCarter family.

••• Speaking of parks: Crystal Lake resident Heather McCarter and her family were recognized by the Crystal Lake Park District on Thursday night for visiting all 41 district parks over the course of a few months this summer. McCarter said her 5-year-old son, Riley, was looking at a map of the district’s parks in the back of its brochure and said he wanted to visit all of them. “He just got into his head that he wanted to visit them all,” Heather told me. “It was kind of our summer goal.” Beginning in May, Heather, Riley and her youngest children, 2-year-old Owen and almost-1-year-old Anneliese, plotted a course that allowed them to reach their goal by the end of August. (Heather’s husband, Adam, is a web developer for Northwest Herald’s parent company, Shaw Media.) “I was trying to do it before school started,” Heather said. “So some days we looked at the map to see parks that were close to each other, and we had to do a couple of them the same day.” Heather posted her accomplishment on Facebook. A Facebook friend saw it and notified the park district, which honored her and her family with a nice certificate. As a result, the district plans to start a new program in 2014 – Park Quest 2014 – to encourage residents to visit all of their parks, Heather told me. She has me wondering how many district parks my family and I have visited – I’d guess about half – and whether we can try something similar.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – In recent years, many American bishops have drawn a harder line with parishioners on what could be considered truly Roman Catholic, adopting a more aggressive style of correction and telling abortion rights supporters to stay away from the sacrament of Communion. Liberal-minded Catholics derided the approach as tone-deaf. Church leaders said they had no choice given what was happening around them: growing secularism, increasing acceptance of gay marriage, and a broader culture they considered more and more hostile to Christianity. They felt they were following the lead of the pontiffs who elevated them. But in blunt terms, in an interview published Thursday in 16 Jesuit journals worldwide, the new pope, Francis called the church’s focus on abortion, marriage and contraception narrow and said it was driving people away. Now, the U.S. bishops face a challenge to rethink a strategy many considered essential for preserving the faith. “I don’t see how the pope’s remarks can be interpreted in any other way than arguing that the church’s rhetoric on the so-called culture war issues needs to be toned down,” said John Green, a religion

Pope Francis is greeted by Cardinal Timothy Dolan as he meets the cardinals for the first time March 15 after his election at the Vatican. In an interview published Thursday in 16 Jesuit journals worldwide, Pope Francis called the church’s focus on abortion, marriage and contraception narrow and said it was driving people away. Now, the U.S. bishops face a challenge to rethink a strategy many considered essential for preserving the faith. specialist at the University of Akron’s Bliss Institute of Applied Politics. “I think his language calls for less stridency on these issues.” The leadership of the American church is composed of men who were appointed by Popes John Paul II or Benedict XVI, who made a priority of defending doctrinal orthodoxy. Over the last decade or so, the bishops have been working to reassert their moral authority, in public life and over the less obedient within their flock. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops warned Catholics that voting for abortion-rights supporters

could endanger their souls. Church leaders in Minnesota, Maine and elsewhere took prominent roles in opposing legal recognition for samesex marriage in their states. Bishops censured some theologians and prompted a Vatican-directed takeover of the largest association for American nuns by bringing complaints to Rome that the sisters strayed from church teaching and paid too little attention to abortion. Terrence Tilley, a theologian at Fordham University, said Francis wasn’t silencing discussion of abortion or gay marriage, but indicating those issues should be less

central, for the sake of evangelizing. But he noted that bishops have independence to decide how they should handle local political issues. “Although Francis is sending a clear signal that he’s not a culture warrior, that doesn’t mean the bishops will follow in lockstep,” Tilley said. Few of the U.S. bishops who have commented so far on Francis’ interview indicated they planned to change. Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, head of the bishops’ religious liberty committee, said in a phone interview, “Issues do arise and we cannot always control the timing.” However, he added, “Every time I make a statement about one of these things I will certainly take another look at it and ask, ‘Does this really lead people back to the heart of the Gospel?’ “That’s what he’s asking us to do. I think that’s a fair question. “ Lori said he expected no changes in the bishops’ push for broader religious exemptions from the contraception coverage rule in the Affordable Care Act. Dozens of Catholic charities and dioceses, along with evangelical colleges and others, are suing the Obama administration over the regulation. The bishops say the provision violates the religious freedom of faithbased nonprofits and for-profit employers.
