Hinckley-Big Rock’s late comeback falls short

Ideal board chairman set to retire CEO Jim James will step in to replace David W. Juday By DEBBIE BEHRENDS dbehrends@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Although he’s retiring as chairman of the board of directors of Ideal Industries Inc., David W. Juday will continue to serve on the board. “I’ve known this day was coming for a long time,” Juday said. “But the management team is strong and won’t miss a beat. “Ideal is a family-owned company making a greater effort and greater progress in doing the things we need to do to be family-owned for another generation. I’m not dying, just retiring from Jim James one role.” Juday joined the company in 1972 and has been board chairman since 1984. Jim James, the company’s CEO and vice chairman, will replace Juday as chairman of the board. “We would like to thank Dave for his commitment of time, support, friendship and leadership that has helped Dave W. Juday make Ideal what it is today,” James said in a news release. “Ideal is a stronger company, poised for future success and long-term sustainability, because of Dave’s vision and stewardship.” Ideal has evolved from a regional manufacturer known for its Wire-Nut connectors to one of the world’s largest makers of contractor-grade tools, testers and supplies used by electricians, data communities installers and industrial maintenance professionals.

GOP treasurer hopefuls tout contrasting skills

dbehrends@shawmedia.com To the untrained eye, rescue efforts often look chaotic, but practice makes those efforts controlled chaos. Local fire and rescue personnel in Sycamore, DeKalb and Genoa-Kingston have spent recent training time perfecting their ice rescue skills to be prepared should someone fall through thinning ice on area rivers, creeks and ponds. Sycamore first responders started their day in the classroom to quickly review techniques before heading out to the shallow pond behind the Good Times Shelter in Sycamore Park for some hands-on training Thursday. “We’ve revamped our procedures a little,” said Sycamore Fire Chief Pete Polarek. “This training should be done every year.” Polarek said he reviewed the existing operating guidelines and using his own experience, rewrote the procedure. It was reviewed by the department in January and practiced in February. Polarek said they do the training when the ice is a little thinner for a couple of reasons. First, it’s easier to simulate reality, and second, it’s safer for personnel being trained. “There’s always a hazard involved, even during training, but we want to minimize the risk,” Polarek said. DeKalb Fire Chief Eric Hicks said the only reason departments might not practice every year would be poor ice conditions. His department practiced during February as well. “We’ve had good ice conditions for practice the past three years,” Hicks said. Polarek said they strive to reach four objectives: familiarize personnel with procedures, give them hands-on experience, validate the value of the procedure and solicit input to improve procedures. Polarek urged personnel to dress in their “Gumby suits” as much as possible en route to the park to help determine what limitations exist. He explained the suits are several layers thick to keep the wearer warm and dry

SPRINGFIELD – Both candidates seeking the Republican nomination to be Illinois treasurer say they want to help right the state’s financial ship – one bringing years of legislative experience to the job, the other promoting his technical expertise as a certified public accountant. Former House Republican leader Tom Cross and DuPage County Auditor Bob Grogan are jockeying to be the GOP candidate for a post being vacated by incumbent Dan Rutherford at a time when Illinois finds itself in a continuing financial mess.

Hagel says military must shrink for new era By ROBERT BURNS The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Looking beyond America’s post-9/11 wars, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Monday proposed shrinking the Army to its smallest size in 74 years, closing bases and reshaping forces to confront a “more volatile, more unpredictable” world with a more nimble military. The nation can afford a smaller military so long as it retains a technological edge and the agility to respond on short notice to crises anywhere on the globe, Hagel said. He said the priorities he outlined reflect a consensus view among America’s military leaders, but Republicans in Congress were quick to criticize some proposed changes. In a speech at the one-year mark of his tenure as Pentagon chief, Hagel revealed many details of the defense spending plan that will be part of the 2015 budget that President Barack Obama will submit to Congress next week. Hagel described it as the first Pentagon budget to fully reflect the nation’s transition from 13 years of war. At the core of his plan is the notion that after wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that proved longer and more costly than foreseen, the U.S. military will no longer be sized to conduct large and protracted ground wars. It will put more emphasis on versatile, agile forces that can project power over great

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel briefs reporters Monday at the Pentagon where he recommended shrinking the Army to its smallest size since the buildup to U.S. involvement in World War II in an effort to balance postwar defense needs with budget realities. distances, including in Asia. Hagel stressed that such changes entail risk. He said, “We are entering an era where American dominance on the seas, in the skies and in space can no longer be taken for granted.” However, budget constraints demand that spending be managed differently from the past, with an eye to cutting costs across a wide front, including in areas certain to draw opposition in the Congress, he said. He proposed, for example, a variety of changes in military compensation, including smaller pay raises, a slowdown in the growth of tax-free housing

allowances and a requirement that retirees and some families of active-duty service members pay a little more in health insurance deductibles and copays. “Although these recommendations do not cut anyone’s pay, I realize they will be controversial,” Hagel said, adding that the nation cannot afford the escalating cost of military pay and benefit packages that were enacted during the war years. “If we continue on the current course without making these modest adjustments now, the choices will only grow more difficult and painful down the road,” he said. Although Congress has agreed on an overall number for the military budget in fiscal 2015 – just under $500 billion – there are still major decisions to be made on how that money should be spent to best protect the nation. Early reaction from Republicans in Congress was negative. “I am concerned that we are on a path to repeat the mistakes we’ve made during past attempts to cash in on expected peace dividends that never materialized,” said Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a possible presidential contender in 2016. “What we’re trying to do is solve our financial problems on the backs of our military, and that can’t be done,” said Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon of California, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee.

‘Ghostbusters’ writer, actor Harold Ramis dies By TAMMY WEBBER The Associated Press CHICAGO – Harold Ramis, the bespectacled “Ghostbusters” sidekick to Bill Murray whose early grounding in live comedy led to blockbuster movies such as “National Lampoon’s Animal House,” “Caddyshack” and “Groundhog Day,” died Monday. He was 69. Ramis, who suffered for several years from an autoimmune disease that caused inflammation and damage to his blood vessels, died at his home in the Chicago suburbs, surrounded by family and friends, his talent agency said. Perhaps his greatest legacy is his influence on generations of comedians, actors and directors because of his ability to infuse comedy with a broader, sometimes spiritual message, said Andrew Alexander, president and CEO of The Second City. Ramis got his start with the Chicago-based improvisational comedy theater, along with future co-stars Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi and Murray. “There was always a nuanced meaning to his pictures,” Alexander said, including an “almost Buddhist philosophy to ‘Groundhog Day’ ” – a movie Ramis co-wrote and directed that tells the story of a man who re-lives the same day over and over as he examines his life. “He was a generous, nurturing, humble guy,” Alexander added. Aykroyd issued a statement Monday, saying he was “deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my brilliant,

May he now get the answers he was always seeking.” Ramis joined The Second City in 1969, and in 1976 became head writer for the Canadian-based comedy show Second City Television, or SCTV. He soon moved on to bigger projects – the legendary 1978 blockbuster film “National Lampoon’s Animal House,” which starred fellow Second City alum John Belushi. With Murray as the comic lead, the Second City alums paired up for numerous projects: Ramis co-wrote 1979’s “Meatballs” and co-wrote and directed 1980’s “Caddyshack.” But the most well-known of their collaborations was “Ghostbusters,” which

also features Aykroyd. Ramis helped write the 1984 movie, in which he stars as Egon Spengler, the brainy, commonsense member of a group of parapsychologists who try to catch ghosts. “The best comedy touches something that’s timeless and universal in people,” Ramis told The Associated Press in a 2009 story about the 50th anniversary of Second City. “When you hit it right, those things last.” More recently, he directed “Analyze This,” starring Billy Crystal and Robert DeNiro. Ramis was born Nov. 21, 1944, in Chicago. He is survived by his wife, Erica Ramis; sons, Julian and Daniel; daughter, Violet; and two grandchildren.

Mexico’s ‘El Chapo’ arrest is unlikely to slow down top cartel By KATHERINE CORCORAN The Associated Press MEXICO CITY – Like a Fortune 500 company losing an executive, the powerful Sinaloa cartel is likely to stay in business at least in the short term, selling billions of dollars of illegal drugs despite the arrest of its legendary leader, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. But the longer-term fate of a criminal ring likened to an international corporation is anything but clear, as authorities pursue other top leaders and weaker rivals dream of moving in. Guzman’s arrest Saturday was undoubtedly a major blow, coming on the heels of more than a dozen arrests of key lieutenants and lower-lev-

cocaine to the United States. The operation did not touch the cartel’s immense political power, nurtured through the

bribery of corrupt officials, or its thriving money laundering operations. “As long as these other structures remain in place, all things being equal, Sinaloa will be able to continue to operate if not as normal, at least as the most powerful criminal organization in Mexico,” said David Shirk, director of the University of San Diego’s Justice in Mexico Project. Guzman, who made Forbes magazine’s lists of billionaires and most powerful people, was first among equals with partners Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada and Juan Jose Esparragoza, known as “El Azul,” both of whom remain at large. Despite rumors to the contrary, Guzman worked closely with Zambada. Guillermo

Valdes, former head of Mexico’s top domestic intelligence agency, said the pair shared a clear vision, not only with respect to their adversaries but also with their business plan for trafficking cocaine, marijuana, heroin and methamphetamine in some 54 countries. On Monday, a senior Drug Enforcement Administration official told The Associated Press that Zambada is likely to be the next chief of the Sinaloa cartel. The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss specific details of Guzman’s arrest in Mexico, said Guzman’s absence will not have an immediate effect on cartel operations because it has evolved from a gang into a worldwide organization.

Park name tribute to late Sycamore physician By DEBBIE BEHRENDS dbehrends@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – It’s fitting that the winning name of Sycamore’s newest park is announced on the 100th birthday of its namesake. The nearly 5-acre park in the Sycamore Creek Subdivision will be dedicated this fall as Dr. John Ovitz Park, named for the lifelong resident and physician. The name was suggested by Ella Follman, a fourth-grader from North Grove Elementary School. Her essay was the winning entry in the Sycamore Park District’s name the park competition. In her nomination, Ella wrote, “I feel the park should be named Ovitz Park. I believe it would be an honor for Sycamore to have one of its parks named after Dr. John Ovitz. He was an outstanding citizen and lifelong member of Sycamore. “He was a doctor in Sycamore for over 50 years until he retired in 1999 at the age of 85. He was a World War II veteran. He served on the Sycamore Chamber of Commerce, Sycamore Community School District and was a member of the Sycamore Rotary Club for 60 years. He was also one of the founding members of the Family Service Agency. His past services have made Sycamore a better place today. The park will be an area where children and families can run, play and laugh. It is the perfect location to name after a man who dedicated his life to helping the children and families of Sycamore.” Ella will receive a $1,000 U.S. savings bond for her winning entry. Runners up, each

He was a third-generation doctor and a graduate of Sycamore High School and Dartmouth College, and he earned his medical degree from Northwestern University School of Medicine in 1940. He married Virginia Noyes in 1941, and they had three children, Carol, Jane and Jack. His wife died in 1954, and in 1957, he married Jane Downs. Together they had two children, Robert and Anne.

Ovitz’s three daughters were in Sycamore recently and expressed their appreciation for naming the park for their father. “What an honor,” Carol Ovitz Hancock said. They remembered their father as an enthusiastic outdoorsman who enjoyed raising and riding horses, fishing, canoeing and bow hunting. The park district received more than 60 entries from children in kindergarten through sixth-grade at Sycamore public and private schools. Winners were chosen by the park district’s Citizens Advisory Committee. “It’s not often we get to add a new park to the community and we can’t honor everyone who has done great things for the community,” said park district Executive Director Dan Gibble. “So this is really special.”

Couple plans to build Culver’s near NIU By KATIE DAHLSTROM kdahlstrom@shawmedia.com DeKalb – ButterBurgers and frozen custard could come to DeKalb late this summer. Jeff and Marcia Newkirk of Plano plan to open a Culver’s at 1262 W. Lincoln Highway. The old Fiesta Cancun restaurant building on the property will be replaced with the new fast-food restaurant with seating for 102 guests. The owners expect to hire five managers as well as 50 to 70 part-time employees to work at the Wisconsin-based franchise. “Culver’s seemed like the best franchise to own, and our son has worked at the Culver’s in Yorkville for six years,” Marcia said. “We really feel good about Culver’s.” Ideally, they would like to open Aug. 1, but Marcia said the city’s process for issuing

a special use permit could cause a delay. The Newkirks have applied for special use permits to allow them to have a drive-thru and Culver’s signs. They will make a presentation before the city’s Planing and Zoning Commission on Wednesday. The permitting process could take another two months, including commission and DeKalb City Council approval, said Derek Hiland, DeKalb’s principal planner. Following approval, the couple could proceed with construction. The couple planned an April 16 groundbreaking, which Marcia said would be pushed back if their special use permit request doesn’t appear before the city council for approval until April. It usually takes three to four months from the time construction starts to the

restaurant opening, according to Paul Pitas, Culver’s director of public relations and communications. Jeff Dobie, owner of Fatty’s Pub and Grille at 1312 W. Lincoln Highway, owns the 76,000-square-foot property the Newkirks plan to buy a piece of. Dobie has been using the space for extra parking. The Culver’s would take up 1.19 acres, leaving Dobie some room for overflow. Dobie said the new restaurant would be a welcome addition to an area that sees an abundance of traffic, including out of town visitors to the area for Northern Illinois football games or graduations. “It’s a great idea,” Dobie said. “This side of town has been ignored for far too long and with it not being a [tax-increment finance] district, you have to do things on your own.”

8LOCAL BRIEF NIU police bust student for pot possession DeKALB – Two Northern Illinois University students were charged, and one was arrested, after police said they found more than half an ounce of marijuana and alcohol in their dorm room. Olivia Lolis, 18, of the 700 block of South 10th Street, St. Charles, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and underage possession of alcohol. Laura J. Ridgeway, 19, of the 400 block of South Quincy Street, Hinsdale, was charged with underage possession of alcohol. An NIU police officer was doing a routine building check Feb. 14 when she noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the women’s dorm room, court records show. Ridgeway told police her roommate, who was off-campus with her boyfriend at the time, sells marijuana, court records show. A search warrant filed Feb. 20 regarding NIU police’s search of the women’s Neptune East dorm room showed police found marijuana in a jar, a pipe with marijuana residue, a digital scale and a bottle of rum among other things. In a phone conversation, the NIU officer heard Lolis say she’d give Ridgeway $100 if she had the police go away, court records show. If convicted of the more serious charge, Lolis could face between one to three years in prison. Ridgeway would face less than a year. Neither of the women were in DeKalb County Jail on Monday. A call to NIU Police Chief Tom Phillips for the current status of the women was not returned Monday. – Andrea Azzo

Ill. governor presses for disaster aid overhaul By JIM SUHR The Associated Press ST. LOUIS – Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn lobbied in Congress’ backyard Monday for a legislative overhaul of the federal government’s formula for doling out disaster assistance, questioning why his disaster-plagued state was rebuffed after a recent series of deadly tornadoes. Quinn, a Democrat seeking re-election, used his keynote speech in Washington, D.C., during a National Journal-hosted forum on natural disasters to make his case for revamping what he called the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s “outdated” criteria for deciding disaster relief. Illinois hasn’t had much of a reprieve from severe weather over the past five years, Quinn suggested, citing the

historic drought of 2012, deadly tornadoes the past two years, this winter’s ravaging storms and last spring’s flooding that affected four dozen counties. During most of those events, Quinn said, Illinois mobilized state resources to the affected areas, including those raked last November by two dozen tornadoes that killed eight people and destroyed or damaged 2,500 homes. Federal aid was given to people and businesses affected by those tornadoes, but FEMA’s funding formula denied the state’s request for assistance to local governments, which Quinn said incurred $6.1 million in storm-related expenses in nine affected counties. FEMA did the same in 2012 when a tornado tore through southern Illinois’ Harrisburg, killing seven and forcing Illinois agencies to cobble togeth-

shouldn’t be based on an outdated formula that excludes some of our hardest-hit communities,” Quinn said. “FEMA has been a great partner in helping individuals and businesses recover, and this legislation will allow them to assist even more communities with disaster recovery.” FEMA, while saying Quinn’s appeal of the denial related to the November tornadoes is being reviewed, defended on Monday its protocols in deciding such matters. In an emailed response to The Associated Press, FEMA said that though it does determine whether the costs of response and recovery efforts are too much for states, local governments and voluntary agencies, “by law FEMA cannot duplicate assistance available from other sources, including other federal agencies, insurance companies, voluntary agen-

cies or the private sector.” FEMA said it “carefully considered” Illinois’ request but concluded “the public costs associated with the response and recovery efforts were not beyond the combined capabilities of state and local governments such that additional federal assistance is required.” Illinois did get some good news Monday, when the U.S. Department of Labor announced that the state would get an emergency grant that will incrementally pay more than $646,000 to help continue cleanup and recovery efforts tied to severe storms that socked 40 Illinois counties in April and May of last year. That money comes from the Labor Department chief’s discretionary fund, although it wasn’t immediately clear whether Monday’s announcement was related to Quinn’s remarks.

Juday is active in the community where he serves on the boards of several private companies as well as several nonprofits. He always has taken an interest in education, serving on the Sycamore Board of Education in the 1970s and the Illinois

State Board of Education in the 1980s and ’90s. “The stuff I’ve done is historically progressive,” Juday said. “It has all led to today’s workforce development.” He is among industrial and economic leaders in DeKalb and Ogle counties working to

prepare high school students to work in manufacturing. “We feel DeKalb County is underperforming in terms of median family income and employment,” Juday said. “We’ve done a lot toward improving that, we just haven’t done enough stuff right.”

Treasure tasked with investing more ‘This is unique training’ than $15 billion in taxpayer dollars • ICE RESCUE Continued from page A1

• TREASURER Continued from page A1 While Grogan said he believes marriage is between a man and a woman, he has not made an issue of Cross’ vote on the campaign trail, noting same-sex marriage is “not related to the duties or the operations of the treasurer’s office.” He has focused on promoting his experience tracking county finances and operations, arguing that it makes him the best qualified candidate to run the treasurer’s office efficiently. Illinois’ treasurer is tasked with investing more than $15 billion in taxpayer dollars, helping Illinois citizens manage finances and keeping track of unclaimed property. The office also manages college savings programs for Illinoisans. Those programs have landed previous officeholders in hot water, as both Rutherford, a Republican now running for governor, and his predecessor, Democrat Alexi Giannoulias, were criticized for the way they ran the Bright Start program, which lost close to $150 million in recent years. “Having watched this office since the 1970s, probably the most important qualification for anyone to be the state treasurer is for them to be able hire competent people to run the office and then stay out of their way,” said Charlie Wheeler, a professor at the University of Illinois in Springfield and a longtime

er an $8.8 million aid package, Quinn said. Quinn and Illinois’ U.S. senators complain that communities in highly populated states – like Illinois, with its more than 10 million people – under FEMA’s aid formula must incur a greater level of damage than communities in lesser-populated states. To Quinn, that’s “flawed” and worthy of “a clearer, more substantive formula when evaluating disaster areas,” something he believes would come from the Fairness in Federal Disaster Declarations Act pending in Congress. Backed by Illinois’ U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin, a Democrat, and Republican Mark Kirk, the bill would weight evaluation factors FEMA already uses but add local or regional economic criteria for consideration. “Disaster assistance

pledged to battle against government fraud, establish an “integrity unit” for the office and institute quarterly audits of the college savings program. He said his gay marriage support comes from a longstanding belief in protecting individual freedoms. He acknowledged encountering blowback from some primary voters, but said he hopes his record will help them look past it. If he wins the primary, the vote could help him win broader support against a Democrat in the general election at a time when increasing numbers of Illinoisans support same-sex marriage. Gloria Campos, the Republican Party chairwoman in southern Jackson County, agreed that Cross’ vote could have an impact in some swaths of the state. But at this point, she said, the issue is not being raised much.

None of the area departments report being called for many ice rescues, but Polarek said more often they are called to rescue a pet that’s wandered onto thinning ice. “Generally speaking, this training isn’t designed to rescue pets, but we know how attached owners are to their pets,” Polarek said. “We would rather rescue a pet than allow the owner to get into a dangerous situation.” A little farther north, Genoa-Kingston recently had three first responders certified to teach the rest of their mostly-volunteer department.

Raised in Clare, he graduated from Sycamore High in 1968. He started his working life at Seymour of Sycamore, then went on to welding at Barber Green. Next, he joined the union as a laborer and, after a scary accident, earned the nickname “Flipper.” That was only one of many. Along the way, he met Paula Sucik and they were married in March of 1975. Their son, Dylan, was born on August 17, 1991, but sadly, only lived 11 days. There were no other children. Always a Mr. Fix-It, his creativity went wild after he retired. Countless pie safes, cabinets, trunks, bookcases, tables, dressers, cedar chests, flower bunks, outhouses, and chicken mansions. He enjoyed raising & naming all his chickens, then they ate them. There was no telling what color tomatoes he’d be giving away every summer, from red to black and every hue in between. Opinionated and hard headed, he loved his mother and his wife. He tolerated the rest of us. Gone before him, his ma & pa, his son, Dylan, and half brothers, Dick, Charlie and Pat. Left to either cry, laugh or cuss him is Paula, his bo-hunk of almost 40 years. Her sisters, Gerri, Stevie and Chris, and brother Michael. His sister, Kathryn (Wisa) and brother, Daniel and his wife, Diane. Also way too many nieces and nephews to list. And two half sisters, Barb in South Dakota and Gail. Plus a ton of best bro’s, friends, and neighbors. Cremation was handled by the Neptune Society in Palatine. Per his “demand,” there are no services. He said to just “pop a top & think of him now and then.” Later, Boy, what a long, strange trip it’s been.

aazzo@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Art shop owner and Sycamore resident Lisa Hohlfeld still has plenty of ideas after her first three months in business. Two Sisters’ Emporium, 215 W. Main St., Sycamore, sells work by local artists as well as Hohlfeld’s all-natural soaps, lotion bars, lip balm, candles and jewelry. Hohlfeld, who named the shop after her 10- and 12-year-old daughters, now offers several art classes and workshops. One of them, a meet-and-greet event presented by another of Hohlfeld’s daughters, will be from 11 a.m. to noon March 15. “[The shop] will always be changing,” Hohlfeld said. “There will always be somebody new and something new to come see.” Hohlfeld said she wanted to start the business because she’s sold her wares at craft shows in the past and knows how much work goes into them. “I thought people like me would like to have a place but can’t afford one or don’t have enough stuff to sell,” she said. “I thought, I bet more people can set up and sell stuff and not have to cart everything around.” Hohlfeld hopes to hand the store over to her daughters as they grow older, she said.

8BRIEFS Parks superintendent is ‘Tops in Class’ Jeff Donahoe, Sycamore Park District Superintendent of Parks, was recently recognized by North Carolina State University and the National Recreation and Park Association. Donahoe graduated from the Parks Maintenance Management School with the highest score on the final exam at the second year of the two-year program. He scored the highest score on the year one exam, two. The NCSU/NRPA school focuses on issues related to maintaining the specialized grounds, equipment, personnel, parks and facilities found in local parks departments and park districts. The school is taught by practitioners who come from the leading parks and recreation organizations in the United States. Each year of the school is condensed to one week of intensive classroom time with additional evening practical exercises and focused topic discussions, concluding with a final exam. After passing the year one exam with the highest score, Donahoe was awarded a scholarship waiving the course registration fee for year two of the school. Now, by getting the highest year two score, and the highest combined score for years one and two, Donahoe has earned the Sycamore Park District two additional scholarships for other parks staff to attend the school in the future. Donahoe has been with the Sycamore Park District for 15 years, starting his career as the golf course superintendent. His expertise lies in that area, but with recent cuts in full-time parks staff, Donahoe took on a combined role, adding parks maintenance to his duties.

KishHealth welcomes new oncologist The KishHealth System Cancer Center welcomes a new physician in hematology and oncology, Dr. Habib A. Shaikh. He is board certified in medical oncology and internal medicine. For three and a half years, Shaikh cared for hematology and oncology patients at RiverBend Medical Group/Mercy Oncology Services in Springfield, Mass. He also practiced as a hospitalist for two years at

Swedish American Hospital in Rockford. Shaikh received his doctor of osteopathy degree from Midwestern University in Downers Grove. He completed a fellowship in hematology-oncology and an internal medicine residency at University of Illinois at Chicago. “My approach to cancer care is one of both personalized treatment as well as personal treatment,” Shaikh said in a news release. “It is the age of personalized medicine, which means that medical decisions and treatments are customized to the individual patient’s characteristics and on various characteristics of their disease.”

Store continues donation program Thriftique, a unique antique and thrift shop in the Indian Springs Shopping Center in Sandwich, has donated more than $1,000 to nonprofits since beginning its donation consignment program. The shop donated more than $350 to a food bank in

Somonauk, and in January donated $640.41 to local resident Beatrice Green for her participation in the Chicago Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. The shop has another $350 donation for a local charity that has yet to be determined. Store owner Kevin Teckenbrock said since the donations to the store are coming from local people, the store’s financial donations must stay local, too. Teckenbrock makes it easy to donate old or unused items. He has helped several families clean out basements and attics, and has taken items left after a move or garage sale. “What we can’t sell in the store, we will donate elsewhere,” Teckenbrock said in a news release. “The convenience is that we handle the logistics for the donor.” When customers learn that items in the store marked with a bright orange dot were donated and proceeds from their sale will benefit a local charity, many are happy to get involved by buying and donating themselves, he said.

to sell their work. Artists receive 100 percent of what they sell for that month, Hohlfeld said. The artists seem to be enjoying

the extra business. Hampshire artist Gail Brage sells buckle bracelets, made from recycled belts, with her daughter, Jamie Barwick. Brage said the duo has been doing pretty well with their business considering the poor weather. “We’re doing pretty good. I can’t complain,” she said. “We bring our stuff. [Lisa] does all the work and lets us know how things are going.” The artists are not required to be at the store when their artwork is for sale. Pingree Grove artist Bob Kapheim sells multiple works of art at Two Sisters’ Emporium, including glass-fused works, jewelry dishes, milk cards and pencil drawings. A Northern Illinois University alumnus, Kapheim said being involved with Two Sisters’ Emporium gives him and other artists an opportunity to get exposure in an area where they may not have had previous experience. “Everybody feeds off the other person,” he said. “It’s good exposure for everybody.”

Have a plan for college

Soda pop tax another cash grab SPRINGFIELD – The latest taxation plan in Springfield is more than a bit hard to swallow. State Sen. Mattie Hunter, D-Chicago, has introduced legislation for the state to start taxing soda pop at a rate of 1 cent an ounce. That would jack up the price of a case of pop by 50 percent, or about $2.88. Hunter’s reason is straightforward: Pop makes us fat. No kidding. So do pecan pie, potato chips and just about anything eaten to excess. Should we start creating special taxes for them, too? Or, you know, a few years ago I was reporting in Cuba and found that the government there rations food. It seems to ensure no one gets fat, but it leaves plenty of folks hungry. Perhaps that is a model Hunter should consider. Back during World War II, our government rationed food. I still have some of my grandmother’s ration stamps tucked away

VIEWS Scott Reeder in a drawer. Maybe that would be a scheme worthy of the good senator’s adoption. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying soda is particularly good for you. Like many journalists I was once a caffeine fiend downing seven or eight diet sodas a day. But 15 months ago, I gave up all pop. Now the only beverages I consume are skim milk and water. But that is a personal choice. And pardon me, but personal choices should be just that – personal. They shouldn’t be subject to the dictates of government. Government needs to butt out of our private lives. Personal responsibility should triumph over government mandates.

By the way, in case you think this is all about government wanting just the best for you, think again. This tax plan would suck $600 million a year right out of the pockets of Illinoisans, one quarter at a time. And that money would be used to further expand government. Illinois doesn’t have a revenue problem – it has a spending problem. Revenues are at their highest level in the state’s 196-year history. But our state government is still broke. There is an insatiable thirst for dollars in Springfield that no soda tax can quench. While soda may be making people overweight, new taxes are making our government fat. That in itself is a good reason for supporters of the new tax to put a cork in it.

UAW loss in Tenn. a repudiation of ’30s unionism It is 611 miles from the United Auto Workers headquarters in Detroit to Volkswagen’s assembly plant in Chattanooga, Tenn. It’s a long day’s drive, about 10 hours almost entirely on Interstate 75, and it turned out to be too far for the UAW. Or so one must judge from the results of the unionization election last week in Chattanooga. Volkswagen employees voted 712-626 against certifying the UAW as their bargaining agent. That’s not an overwhelming margin. But it’s significant. Volkswagen, unlike most employers, didn’t oppose the union. It supported it, opening its factory to union organizers but not opponents, announcing it wanted the UAW as a partner in a worker’s council similar to the company’s council with its IG Metall union in Germany. Knowledgeable analysts like Steven Pearlstein in the Washington Post clearly anticipated a union victory. Many expressed hopes that it would herald successful UAW organizing drives in other foreign-manufacturer plants in the South and Midwest. But workers made another choice. It’s a big setback for the UAW, whose chances of organizing other foreign-manufacturer plants – where managements oppose unionization – seem as minimal as ever. And it’s a repudiation of the UAW model of unionism, which goes back to the sitdown strikes of early 1937, which enabled the union to organize General Motors and Chrysler (Ford would be organized later, in 1941). 1937 was 77 years ago. To get a sense of how long ago that was, if you go back 77 years before that year, you are in the early weeks of 1860, before Abraham Lincoln delivered the Cooper Union speech that made him a leading candidate in that year’s presidential election. America’s economy changed a lot in

VIEWS Michael Barone those 77 years. And it has changed a lot in the 77 years since 1937. The appeal of the UAW to autoworkers in the 1930s is not hard to understand. The auto companies managed workers according to the theories of Frederick W. Taylor, whose time-motion studies prescribed the most efficient ways to perform simple operations on a moving assembly line. Taylor believed workers should be treated like stupid animals, incapable of adaptation or initiative, who needed to be disciplined to perform the same simple function all day. Workers hated that work. But they knew in the Depression years that there were many unemployed men who would be happy to take their place. The UAW argued that, thanks to the National Labor Relations Act of 1935, it could protect workers’ jobs and that its shop stewards could protest assembly line speedups by stopping the whole assembly line. The NLRA’s adversarial process came to dominate labor-management relations and attract other workers. By the early 1930s, 35 percent of private sector workers had union representation. That number has fallen drastically since then. There was a slight uptick last year, according to the Labor Department, but the number is still just 7 percent. Why the shift against unions? The auto industry is a good example. Adversarial unionism prevented the Detroit-based automakers from adopting the flexible labor relations employed by non-unionized foreign-based automakers.

In addition, the Detroit firms’ managers were themselves hooked on Taylorism. They saw workers as a lower class of beings who needed to be bridled and saddled like horses. As a result, foreign-owned automakers produced vehicles of much higher quality. In adversarial-union plants, some workers delighted in sabotaging their cars. In nonunion plants, workers came forward with suggestions on how to make them better. It took a long time for the UAW and Detroit management to acknowledge the problem. As Megan McArdle points out in her new book “The Up Side of Down,” organizations that have long been successful are reluctant to change their ways during years of slow, sometimes imperceptible decline. UAW president, Bob King, said that his union has learned to be cooperative with management. Improved quality of Detroit-made cars and anecdotal evidence that has come my way tend to support that claim. But Chattanooga’s VW workers don’t seem to think they need the union to cooperate with the company. They’re already working together – and new hires make union-level wages. And workers can’t help but notice that the UAW helped push General Motors and Chrysler – and, indirectly, Detroit – into bankruptcy. The bottom line is that the 1930s adversarial union model has little appeal to workers today. And that few Americans want to head on the road to Detroit.

College is expensive. This isn’t new. This isn’t groundbreaking. It is something that affects a lot of people. The solution isn’t simple, but having a plan is essential to prevent student loans from owning your life. The average Illinois student who attends a fouryear college will leave school with about $28,000 in debt. Around 64 percent of Illinois college graduates have student loan debt. The key is keeping that number at a manageable level. There are a few ways to do that. The first is pretty obvious, get a scholarship.

Graduation, however, is not a job guarantee. More and more, students are graduating and not finding jobs in their field. The job market is increasingly competitive. So having a plan and gaining work experience in your desired field as early as possible can be a huge advantage in the application process.

How to deal with sugar There’s hardly an ingredient in that candy bar you just unwrapped that the government didn’t have a strong, distorting hand in producing – the peanuts, the sugar, the milk, to name a few. U.S. sugar companies, for example, benefit from a series of overlapping trade protections that the last “reform” farm bill left untouched. If you’re drinking a soda while reading this editorial, you’re probably consuming large amounts of high-fructose corn syrup. Corn farmers are unfairly coddled, too. This supposed economic policy, with its roots in a time when large numbers of impoverished farmers were perpetually one bad harvest away from ruin, is now socialized agriculture that largely benefits wealthy agribusinesses at the expense of taxpayers and consumers. Getting rid of these supports is the right thing to do economically. But what about public health? The distress, diminished quality of life and premature deaths associated with obesity, diabetes and other related ailments demand a government response. Eliminating the subsidies for corn would raise the price of corn syrup, which might help. Eliminating the sugar program, though, would lower the price of that ready substitute for corn syrup. Obviously, the government shouldn’t stop there. An effective anti-obesity policy would include taxes on certain bad-for-you foods, which would tend to discourage unhealthy habits without objectionable restrictions on consumer choice. This is preferrable to current sugar policy, which nudges prices up but channels the difference to companies that haven’t earned it, in part because the federal Treasury would benefit from the tax revenue. Some public-health advocates favor new taxes on products such as sugary drinks, which account for a large chunk of Americans’ consumption of refined sugars. Several states and cities are considering the idea. But a recent working paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research highlights that going after just one class – sugary drinks – might encourage people to replace those drinks with candy bars rather than cut back on refined sugars altogether. The researchers from Cornell and Stanford found that applying a 20 percent tax to soda would reduce calorie consumption by about 4 percent, the equivalent of about 16 cans a month, and decrease people’s satisfaction with their diet by about 2.5 percent. But they also found that a general tax applied to refined sugars at the ingredient stage would reduce calorie consumption by nearly 19 percent, with the same hit in satisfaction and with sizable effects on salt and fat intake. In other words, people will eat more apples when all products with refined sugars are more expensive. The Washington Post

Spartans unravel in 2nd half AP photo

Collins finds a welcoming home in Nets locker room Jason Collins has a week and a half to prove himself to the Brooklyn Nets. He signed a 10-day contract, one of the toughest deals in sports because it gives nonsuperstars almost no time to impress their coaches and teammates in hopes of sticking around. With this group, Collins did that long ago: The Nets locker room is filled with former teammates who already have accepted the league’s first openly gay player and his on-court habits, which are the ones that matter most to them. “Guys already know what to expect from me. It’s like, OK, he’s not going to magically have a 40-inch vertical (leap) and shoot 3s,” Collins said. That made it the ideal place for his historic return to the NBA. Perhaps, as numerous players insisted after Collins came out in a Sports Illustrated article in April, athletes were ready to accept a gay teammate. Maybe Collins would have been welcomed anywhere he signed. But maybe not. As the bullying scandal involving the Miami Dolphins proved, the locker room can be a place where abusive language can divide a team and threaten to derail a season, to say nothing of the fallout for the players themselves. – Wire report

H-BR’s late comeback falls short

With the Royals down three to Eastland in the Class 1A DeKalb Super-Sectional, H-BR’s Karrigan Cowan made an improbable steal of the inbounds pass, and the Royals girls basketball team passed the ball around the arc in the final seconds, getting it to Madden, who carried H-BR in the second half.

She had just enough time to let off a last-second shot, but it wouldn’t go in, as Eastland advanced to the Class 1A final four in Normal with a 36-33 victory. “Of all the teams I’ve worked with over the years, I don’t know if I’ve ever been more proud of an individual game effort than this one tonight,” H-BR coach Greg Burks said. H-BR was able to fight its way back, changing from a zone to a man-to-man pressure defense in the second half.

NHL a ‘step down’ after Olympics Toews: Olympians have an edge over rest of the players By MARK LAZERUS mlazerus@suntimes.com SOCHI, Russia – Jonathan Toews remembers the first few games back in 2010 after the exhilaration of winning Olympic gold in Vancouver. The Blackhawks played four games in six days, starting on the road on Long Island.

Rangers, 6 p.m. Thursday, CSN, AM-720 [at the Olympics],” said Toews, who helped Canada win its second straight Olympic gold medal Sunday against Sweden. “If I remember last time, going back to the NHL style, the pace seemed like almost a step down, where you just felt relaxed and knew you had time with the puck. Maybe that was just because guys were coming off their break and they’re out of shape, and you didn’t miss a beat. I think it’s a good thing. Not a big deal for us.” The big fear in Chicago leading into the Olympics was that the

grueling two-week tournament, combined with the travel, would hurt the Hawks. The Hawks themselves don’t share that concern. While Andrew Shaw and Ben Smith went to Hawaii, Brandon Saad, Brandon Bollig and Nick Leddy went to Mexico and Bryan Bickell went fishing, 10 of their Hawks teammates were playing at the highest level of hockey possible. “I think we’re going to be in better shape than most of the guys that have so-called vacation right now,” silver medalist Niklas Hjalmarsson said during the Olympic tournament. “We’re still paying AP photo games.

NBA

Collision rule leaves open exceptions By RONALD BLUM The Associated Press NEW YORK – Rather than ban home plate collisions outright, Major League Baseball and its players adopted a rule limiting them this season. In what both sides said was a one-year experiment, the rule allows collisions if the catcher has the ball and is blocking the runner’s direct path to home plate, and if the catcher goes into the basepath to field a throw to the plate. “It’s not a radical departure from what it had been,” Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon said. The new rule, 7.13, states “a runner attempting to score may not deviate from his direct pathway to the plate in order to initiate contact with the catcher (or other player covering home plate).” A runner violating the rule shall be declared out, even if the fielder drops the ball. “It’s good, I think it takes away the malicious intent behind the play at the plate,” Texas Rangers catcher J.P. Arencibia said. “Obviously, the runner doesn’t always have to slide, and the catcher still has the ability to block the plate once he has the ball in hand.” Along with the rule, the sides agreed to a pair of comments umpires use for interpretation. The first comment says “the failure by the runner

The second comment says that “unless the catcher is in possession of the ball, the catcher cannot block the pathway of the runner as he is attempting to score.” The runner

shall be declared safe if the catcher violates that provision. In addition, it is not a violation “if the catcher blocks the pathway of the runner in order to field a throw, and the umpire determines that the catcher could not have fielded the ball without blocking the pathway of the runner and that contact with the runner was unavoidable.” “There are some things that often times can make the water a little muddy,” union head Tony Clark said after meeting with the New York Yankees. “Over the course of the offseason, the concern was protect-

ing players, but trying to draw up something that not only made sense on paper, but also was going to make sense to the players that were playing on the field.” The umpire crew chief can use the new video-review system to determine whether the rule was violated. “It stops guys just going out of their way just to try to dislodge the baseball when they (catchers) have the plate,” Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington said. Debate over plate collisions has intensified since May 2011, when San Francisco’s Buster Posey was injured as the Marlins’ Scott Cousins crashed into him at the plate. Posey, an AllStar catcher, suffered a broken bone in his lower left leg and three torn ligaments in his ankle, an injury that ended his season. In Game 5 of last year’s AL Championship Series, Detroit backstop Alex Avila was pulled a couple of innings after being run over at the plate by Boston’s David Ross, a fellow catcher. “I think it’s fair. A runner’s path is to home plate,” Oakland catcher Derek Norris said. “Any deviation and he’s not trying to score, he’s trying to harm. A runner going out of the basepath trying to break up a double play is declared out. This is the same concept as a double-play slide.”

Sox working to Sanchez aims to avoid carryover regain 2010 form Ventura focuses on fixing last season’s mistakes

Next vs. L.A. Dodgers, 2 p.m. Friday, AM-670

By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN dvanschouwen@suntimes.com GLENDALE, Ariz. – Enough talk about last season – although a little reminder now and then doesn’t hurt. As the White Sox go through spring-training drills, “getting it right” has a whole new meaning after the 2013 team was buried by a massive pile of baseball wrongs. “I hope we get it back on track,” slugger Adam D u n n s a i d Robin Ventura Monday. “It was miserable. One of my most miserable seasons.” Almost to a man, that viewpoint is shared among those who were on the Sox last season. “It’s good that people feel that way, not forgetting how bad it felt to get killed every day, finding every single day a way to lose a game as opposed to finding a way to win,” Dunn said. “The coaches are emphasizing stuff that needs to be emphasized, which is boring and monotonous and stuff you’ve known since you were 4 years old, but it’s good. Apparently, people didn’t realize it. So that’s good.” When one veteran pitcher, who no longer is with the team, made wisecracks about the monotony of pitchers taking fielding practice during camp last year, not much was thought of it. But when that same pitcher misplayed a bunt during a game in May, the coaching staff’s reaction was something like, “Well, there you have it.” Nobody is joking about fielding practice this year. “How I look at it is, you take a positive from every situation,” third-base coach Joe McEwing said. “And you learn from it. What we dealt with last year, it’s over. It was a tough year for every single one of us. You have to look at the positive, see our mistakes, learn from it and move on.”

Manager Robin Ventura said the message from the coaching staff is “a little more forceful this year.” “They understand it just has to be better,” Ventura said. “I think they understand there’s probably more work going into this year. Not just the physical stuff, but getting your mind right when we’re going out on defense and why it’s important.” And then there’s baserunning. The Sox were caught in enough rundowns and thrown out at third on enough grounders to the shortstop last season to produce a short comedy feature. “There’s a way to get thrown out, and there are dumb ways to get thrown out,” Ventura said. “Eventually, you’re going to get thrown out. Hopefully, those are aggressive ones and you’re not making silly outs. There were too many of the silly ones last year. You don’t want the silly ones.” Even if the Sox turn it around and play at a much higher level, captain Paul Konerko knows there will be some lows. It happens in a 162-game season. “Every team is going to have those struggles,” Konerko said. “We just have to make sure when that happens to us this year – it could be the first five games of the year, it could be the first month – that it has nothing to do with last year. We can’t have that, ‘Here we go, this is connected to what happened.’ The guys who were here last year have to recognize that. The new guys, it’s easier because they had nothing to do with it. They’re coming in fresh. “I know all you (media) guys – everybody – that will be the first knee-jerk thing that happens when it goes bad for a while, that it’s the same team. We have to make sure that we can’t go to that place we went to mentally last year.”

By GORDON WITTENMYER gwittenmyer@suntimes.com MESA, Ariz. – When Jonathan Sanchez felt his lower leg give way as he planted to field Randall Delgado’s bunt that August night in Atlanta, he knew something was very wrong. But he had no idea how far in the wrong direction it would send his budding career. The high ankle sprain he suffered in that 2011 game ended his season for the San Francisco Giants and had a carryover effect he said he fought all the way into last season, three teams later with the Pittsburgh Pirates. It was a long, bruising fall from a breakout 2010 season for the left-hander that included winning the season-finale clincher that got the Giants into the playoffs and finished with a World Series start and a ring. “It’s pretty hard to think about it,” he said. “When you’re up there with (Tim) Lincecum, (Barry) Zito, (Matt) Cain, (Madison) Bumgarner and then come here for the Chicago Cubs trying to make the team, it’s pretty hard.” For the second year in a row, at 31, the hard-throwing Sanchez is starting over, competing for a roster spot with a new team as a minor-league free agent – the kind of reclamation project that is the common thread running through this Cubs camp. What’s different this time for Sanchez is that after 137 starts in his past 143 games, he’s re-inventing himself as a reliever – the Cubs hoping to turn his electric stuff into lightning in a bottle for their rebuilt bullpen. And this, too, is different, he said: “I’ve got my speed, my slider, my split – everything is there. … I’m getting back to where I was.” Teammate Nate Schierholtz knows what that would mean. “He made guys look bad,” said Schierholtz, who also was with the Giants when Sanchez was at his best. “He wasn’t just getting contact outs. He was making guys look embarrassed at times. … When he’s on and he’s got his command, he’s dirty.” Command always has been the most fragile part of Sanchez’s game. Even in his big 2010 season he led the National League in walks and burned through enough pitches that he averaged less than six innings a start. But his stuff rivaled the AllStars and Cy Young winners on his staff. His 205 strikeouts and major-league-low .204 opponents’ batting average that year helped lead to a 3.07 ERA that was lower than those of Cain,

San Francisco Giants pitcher Jonathan Sanchez sits in the dugout during a spring training game against the Cubs on March 30, 2010, in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Next vs. Arizona (ss), 2:05 p.m. Thursday, WGN Lincecum and Zito. “You don’t see that kind of stuff out of a lefty that often,” said Cubs catcher Eli Whiteside, who caught Sanchez’s no-hitter with the Giants in 2009. “He had a perfect game going into the eighth that day. That was kind of unusual for him. But he’s got great stuff.” “Explosive” is how pitching coach Chris Bosio describes it. “It’s being able to harness it.” Especially as a bullpen guy who can’t waste time finding his stuff. Bosio said the staff is working on different angles, positions on the mound, even posture, to help him find his location quickly and repeatedly. Sanchez said he’s fine with switching to relief, especially if it means finding a home again in the big leagues. And although rediscovering his 2010 effectiveness sounds like a recipe for returning to rotation work, “It could be nasty in the ’pen, too,” he said. Between incumbent lefty James Russell and free-agent acquisition Wesley Wright, the Cubs are open to taking three left-handers north when they break camp, especially if Travis Wood remains the only lefty in the rotation. “I would take as many lefties as we possibly could,” Bosio said, “especially guys with arms like Sanchez. “We’ve got some options,” he added, referring to left-handed inventory that also includes Zac Rosscup and side-arming Tommy Hottovy. “But Sanchez has got the best pure stuff.”

DAYTONA 500

Victory lifts ‘heavy weight’ DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – There was a moment late in the Daytona 500 when Dale Earnhardt Jr. had a moment to catch his breath. It clearly was his race to lose and the tension ran thick through Junior Nation, all the way into his car. Steve Letarte, the crew chief and cheerleader who had rebuilt Earnhardt’s crumpled confidence and returned him to a championship contender, used the moment under caution to settle his driver. “Having fun?” Letarte asked over the radio. “Yeah, but it’s the big prize, man. It’s hard to enjoy IN THE it,” Earnhardt said, before he PITS paused. “I’m Jenna enjoying particFryer ular pieces of it, but the entire experience is driving me crazy.” That’s the albatross that was strapped to the back of NASCAR’s most popular driver as he closed in on his second Daytona 500 victory. It had been 10 years since he won his first 500, and after three runner-up finishes the past four seasons in a race that had caused his family so much heartache and joy, the moment was overwhelming. There’s so much pressure on Earnhardt, who entered the season-opening showcase mired in a 55-race winless streak dating to 2012. He’d won only two races since joining mighty Hendrick Motorsports in 2008, and as he closes in on his 40th birthday, he still is searching for his first Cup championship. It’s been openly stated by the suits at NASCAR that when Junior wins, NASCAR’s popularity surges. So under that theory, if he could just get it together, the days of flat TV numbers and sagging attendance certainly would spike. That’s a lot of pressure to put on one guy, and it hit him as he readied himself for the homestretch Sunday night. “It’s a big race and you want to win it so badly, and your team wants to win so badly,” he said afterward. “You realize at that moment that there are countless people watching on television and there are countless people sitting in the grandstands with your shirts and hats on, and your team is over on the pit wall and your family back home – there are so many people pulling for you and want to see you win. It’s a heavy weight.” This time, he delivered. He emerged from a rain delay of more than six hours with the strongest car in the field. As other drivers struggled

Dale Earnhardt Jr. celebrates in Victory Lane after winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series’ Daytona 500 on Sunday night at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla. to keep busy during the lengthy break, Earnhardt said his concern was not consuming too much of the junk food stored in his motorhome. He knew what he had in the No. 88 Chevrolet. “I knew it was something special,” he said. “I knew we had enough race car. I was a little bit nervous because the pressure was on me because there was plenty of car to do it.” Earnhardt handled every challenge over the final 50 miles. He shook off Greg Biffle, the peskiest foe, and then Carl Edwards. Lined up for a two-lap sprint to the finish, he found himself next to onetime protegé Brad Keselowski, who had a car almost as strong as Earnhardt’s. But Earnhardt had teammate Jeff Gordon on his bumper to help on the final restart, and once he cleared Keselowski it was essentially over. Moves made by other drivers in the pack ruined Keselowski’s pursuit and Denny Hamlin stormed through the field but didn’t have the help he needed or enough laps to mount a proper charge. Hamlin, who won two races earlier in Speedweeks and was going for the trifecta, was dejected with second place. But he noted the significance of the victory. “Any time an Earnhardt wins at Daytona,” he shrugged. The late Dale Earnhardt won 34 races at Daytona International Speedway, but his only 500 victory came in 1998 in his

20th try. He was killed in an accident on the last lap of the 2001 race, triggered while he tried to protect a 1-2 finish for Michael Waltrip and his son, who both drove for him. Conspiracy has followed Earnhardt Jr. since his father’s death as fans wondered if some of his biggest career moments were freebies from NASCAR during a time of mourning. Third-place finisher Keselowski believes Daytona 500 win No. 2 cannot be challenged. “I think this particular race, there’s no drama. There’s no feeling I think anybody could legitimately have that there’s voodoo magic that he won,” Keselowski said. There was only euphoria. NASCAR’s favorite son won the biggest race and earned the first spot in the playoffs under a new championship format that rewards winning. Hendrick Motorsports got at least one week of respite from fans wondering why Earnhardt never wins. And Earnhardt, at least for this week, got to remove that albatross. And after finally joining Twitter, he rewarded his fans – more than 400,000 despite only four tweets – by posting a Monday morning selfie, standing in front of the statue of his father at Daytona: “Look who I ran into at the Daytona Experience. Dad’s Happy!”

BEARS

Ikard on Bears’ radar if Garza signs elsewhere By ADAM L. JAHNS ajahns@suntimes.com INDIANAPOLIS – Football only was part of the conversation when Oklahoma center Gabe Ikard had a one-on-one chat with Bears offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer at the NFL Scouting Combine. “My meeting with coach Kromer at the combine was very laid back,” Ikard said. “We talked about his family, my family and told some pretty entertaining stories.” Why would Kromer entertain such a cordial visit? If the Bears are unable re-sign center Roberto Garza – “It’s a tough business,” coach Marc Trestman said when asked about the pending free agent at the combine – there will be a considerable hole right in the middle of it. The Bears re-signed center Tay-

lor Boggs (along with safety Derrick Martin) to a one-year contract Monday. But Boggs – who made his NFL debut last season – might not develop into the long-term solution. Even if Garza is re-signed, an eventual successor for him must be found, especially with the rest of the starters on the offensive line (Jermon Bushrod, Matt Slauson, Kyle Long and Jordan Mills) in place together for at least the next three seasons. “I am aware of the Bears need for a [guard/center] and I made it very clear to coach Kromer that I would love to play for him,” Ikard said. “It would be an honor to play for the most storied program in professional football history.” Kromer is very familiar with Ikard, who started 50 of 52 career games and was a three-time firstteam All-Big 12 selection. Kromer’s son, Zach, is a student-coach at Oklahoma and Ikard

said they have a “good friendship outside of football.” Ikard first met Kromer when Kromer was with the New Orleans Saints through former Oklahoma offensive line coach James Patton, a close friend of Kromer’s. Ikard might be best known for his part in Oklahoma’s innocent “PastaGate,” where the school’s compliance department self-reported an NCAA secondary vioGabe Ikard lation in which three student-athletes were served “excessive” pasta at graduation banquet last May. “We had to donate $5 to a charity in order to make sure we were eligible to play for the 2013 season,” the 6-foot-4, 304-pounder said. “I chose to donate to the Lupus Foundation of America because one of my closest friends, Daniel Orton, lost his moth-

er to Lupus when we were seniors in high school.” The media ate up “PastaGate” and Ikard ended up receiving hundreds of dollars worth of food from Olive Garden to share with other players at the combine. “The president of Olive Garden, Dave George, actually called me and wished me luck the night before the combine drills,” Ikard said. “ ‘PastaGate’ has been really entertaining for everyone involved and brought some much needed humor to a very stressful process.” It worked as Ikard put together a strong performance. He recorded the best times among all offensive linemen in the three-cone drill (7.3 seconds) and 20-yard shuttle (4.37 seconds). “I think those times helped answer any questions people had about my movement skills,” said Ikard, who played in the East-West Shrine Game and the Senior Bowl. “Hopeful-

H-BR wraps up another successful year

MINNESOTA FOOTBALL

Kill appreciative of raise, extension By DAVE CAMPBELL The Associated Press Minnesota coach Jerry Kill answered his telephone not long after having his annual compensation boosted to more than $2 million. His brother was calling. “You ain’t worth that,” he told Kill from their native Kansas. “I’m sitting here working on beef cattle, and they’re paying you that to Jerry Kill coach football? Is this country crazy?” Kill just laughed. “I can’t answer that question,” the former Northern Illinois coach said. With his farmhand humility and homespun humor, Kill spoke Monday at a news conference about his newly enhanced contract and upcoming spring practice. He said he was appreciative of the hefty raise and the extra year on the contract, but he said he’s “getting paid way too much” in the same sentence he mentioned his daughter makes $29,000 a year doing inner-city work. “I’m the same guy that lived in a trailer house for five years and made $250 a month,” Kill said, referencing his climb up the coaching

ladder from Webb City High School in Missouri to Division II schools Saginaw Valley State and Emporia State to the FCS level with Southern Illinois, a mid-major program at NIU and finally to the Big Ten at Minnesota. Kill’s restructured contract includes a stipulation that the total pay for his top nine assistant coaches must rank in the top six of the conference. He said he wouldn’t have signed the deal without that. He also said he sees this contract as a sign to recruits of stability and progress. “We’re building a program. It’ll take time. We want to be smart about what we pay anyone, and we want to be good stewards of our finances,” athletic director Norwood Teague said. “It’s a building program, and we want to do the best we can every day and see where it lands down the road.” The Gophers are 17-21 in three seasons under Kill. He has come far enough in his fight with epilepsy that he’s back behind the wheel. State law requires licensed drivers to be at least three months without a seizure. “I’m driving, but not very far. That’s one goal,” Kill said. “My second goal is to make everybody proud of Gopher football. I think we’ve moved forward on that.”

AP MEN’S BASKETBALL TOP 25 POLL

Florida replaces Syracuse at No. 1 By TERESA M. WALKER The Associated Press The Florida Gators are taking their turn as the newest No. 1 in what coach Billy Donovan calls a revolving door atop The Associated Press’ college basketball poll, their first time on top of the rankings since they repeated as national champions in 2007. The Gators (25-2) moved up one place Monday, replacing Syracuse (25-2), which lost twice last week and dropped to fourth. Wichita State (29-0) and Arizona (25-2) both moved up one place to second and third. Florida, the fifth school to hold the No. 1 spot this season, received 47 firstplace votes from the 65-member national media panel. The Gators were ranked No.

1 for eight weeks in 2007. Wichita State was No. 1 on 14 ballots with Arizona receiving the other four first-place votes. Donovan called the rankings a revolving door before his Gators took over the top spot, and he said being No. 1 is an honor and compliment. “But let’s be honest right now: The only reason we have garnered No. 1 and we would have never, ever been No. 1 if it had not been for the teams in front of us losing,” Donovan said. To Donovan, a lot of teams could be considered the nation’s best right now with undefeated Wichita State having a strong argument. Donovan also said he’s impressed by Syracuse winning 25 straight games along with what Arizona did before Brandon Ashley’s foot injury.

ly, it gave coaches and scouts a better idea of my ability to move in space and change direction.” The Bears still want to re-sign Garza. Trestman praised everything about him, saying “we believe he should finish his career with the Bears.” But Ikard, the fifth-best center in NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock’s rankings, could be tough to pass on in the late rounds after the Bears address defensive needs. Ikard enjoys the responsibilities that come with center. And he definitely has the mental makeup for it, graduating with special distinction and a 4.0 GPA in multidisciplinary studies (medical sciences focus). On the field, Ikard said zone-blocking schemes like the Bears’ fit him. And, Chicago might fit him, too. “My brother (Sam) actually lives in Chicago,” Ikard said. “It would be awesome to be close to him as a member of the Bears organization.”

Sycamore’s Katherine Kohler (left) and Taiya Hopkins double-team Burlington Central’s Becca Gerke during the third quarter Monday night in a Class 3A Belvidere Sectional semifinal in Belvidere. The Spartans lost, 42-28.

Spartans up win total for 2nd straight season, win 1st regional since 2003 • SPARTANS Continued from page B1 Burlington’s press turned the tide in the second half. Samantha Pryor was the beneficiary of consecutive Rockets steals with five straight points to start the third quarter. After another steal and layup by Aly DeTamble, Kayla Ross knocked down a 3-pointer to put Burlington up by eight. The Rockets held Sycamore to only one point in the third quarter and the Spartans’ first field goal of the second half came with 2:13 remaining in the game on a Taiya Hopkins layup. Bailey Gilbert, the focus of Burlington’s defense all game, led Sycamore

with eight points, five coming late in the fourth quarter. Foresman, Goff and Hopkins each had six in the loss. Sycamore won its first regional championship since 2003 and drastically raised its season win total for the second straight year. Although the Spartans are set to return four of their five regular starters next year, Sycamore’s senior class, which includes Moll and Foresman, played some of its best basketball late in the year. “It’s incredible. I think it means everything,” Moll said of the team’s progress. “Me and the other three seniors, the hard work and dedication and the unity this team had was something really special.”

The Royals were down seven points at the half and five at the end of the third. The Royals (18-14) were able to get within one after two Madden free throws with 42 seconds left. With 15 seconds left, the Royals’ Anne Klein was called for an intentional foul on Cougars guard Courtney Walker. Walker converted one free-throw attempt, and it looked like an Eastland win was a simple formality as the Cougars took the ball out at midcourt. However, H-BR was able to get a chance to tie, as Cowan, who was guarding the inbound pass, came away with the steal that gave the Royals one final possession without having to foul. “I believe it was tipped,” Cowan said. “I just happened to see it, and I grabbed it and held on for life.” Madden finished with a game-high 17 points, 15 coming in the second half. Caitlin Flanigan had six and Andrea Binkley finished with five. Madden also was effective on defense, getting numerous steals and moving the ball in transition. “Leave everything on the floor, we talked about that at halftime. We knew we had to come out stronger in the second half,” Madden said. “I think we all worked together as a team the second half, our intensity level raised a lot.” H-BR entered the postseason with a 1413 record after an up-and-down regular season. Despite ending with a loss, it still was another successful season for H-BR’s tradition-rich program, which won its eighth consecutive regional title and fourth sectional championship in six years. “Those girls that went down state (in 2009 and 2010), I was in middle school. They were my heroes,” Madden said. “... I hope that’s what people think of us. They see us and they want to play basketball.”

BOYS HOOPS: CLASS 1A SOMONAUK REGIONAL

After 2010 Olympics, Hawks won Cup

H-BR falls to host in 1st round

• HAWKS

DAILY CHRONICLE STAFF sports@daily-chronicle.com Hinckley-Big Rock boys basketball saw its season end with a 51-35 loss to Little Ten Conference rival Somonauk on Monday night in the Class 1A Somonauk Regional quarterfinals. The Royals trailed by only six entering the fourth quarter, but the Bobcats pulled away late to advance to the regional semifinals.

Continued from page B1 Besides, the last time the Hawks participated in the Olympics – in 2010 – they went on to win the Stanley Cup. And the Blues, who are tied with the Hawks for first place in the Central Division with three games in hand, had nine players in Sochi, so it’s likely a wash. Defenseman Duncan Keith said that although the Olympics take something of a physical toll, the net effect is a positive one. “These pressure-type games are only going to make us better as players,” he said. “I look back in 2010, and it made me a better player playing the gold-medal game and games like that. ... You learn to deal with that pressure and

those tight situations where the next goal [means] the game could be over. Sometimes guys can get nervous, whereas other guys rise to the occasion. They learn to deal with that pressure of playing those big games and not panicking and knowing they’ll come through in the end.” What matters most is the Hawks appear to have escaped Sochi unscathed. The Islanders lost John Tavares to a season-ending knee injury, the Red Wings lost Henrik Zetterberg for at least the rest of the regular season to a back injury, the Rangers lost Mats Zuccarello to a hand injury and the Panthers lost Tomas Kopecky (head) and Aleksander Barkov (knee) to injuries. The Hawks appear to be no worse for wear as they head back to Chicago before visiting the Rangers on Thursday

and hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday at Soldier Field. The Hawks began practicing Sunday, but coach Joel Quenneville said he won’t rush the returning Olympians back on the ice. “Joel gives us enough time off, and I’m sure he’ll be more aware of that as time goes on, especially with the Olympians that have been here,” winger Patrick Kane said. “Obviously, there’s a lot of travel and a lot of preparation and the effect that goes to your body with being [in Sochi]. But we’re all professionals; we can get ourselves ready to play a hockey game. It’s what we love to do. We love to play hockey and be on the ice and try to compete. The guys in that locker room and the guys that are here always want to do more and achieve more.”

Program gives compulsive eaters new outlook Dear Abby: I’d like to tell your readers about a wonderful program I discovered about a year ago. It’s called Overeaters Anonymous (OA). The program is similar to AA, but it’s for people with an eating problem. For years, I struggled to lose weight. I tried dozens of diets, pills and saw several doctors. I would lose some weight, but I could never stick with a program, so I gained back more than I lost. I felt like a loser. I was a food junkie. I ate when I was happy, sad, depressed, bored or lonely. I would buy candy at the checkout counter at the market and

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips eat it on the way home. Then I’d hide the wrapper in the garage so my family wouldn’t know I ate it. I hid candy in the kitchen cabinets so no one would find it, then I’d sneak in and eat it later. I could never have only one serving size of chips or cookies. I would consume half a bag before I stopped. Since joining OA, I have lost more than 50 pounds and feel like a new person.

I have a new outlook on life and no longer have to rely on food. It’s good to be able to talk with people who have the same problems I do. It’s a daily struggle, but I have a sponsor and others to talk to when I’m tempted to return to my old life. Compulsive eating is a disease, Abby. And unless people have it, they don’t understand. I hope this letter will help someone who is also struggling. – Grateful O.A. Member in Illinois Dear Grateful: I’m glad you found OA. It’s a wonderful organization that has been around for many years. About 20 years ago, I was

fortunate to meet the woman who founded it – and she was a doll – and I know the program has helped many thousands of people. Often when a person has weight issues, it is less about what he or she is eating than it is what is eating the PERSON. Readers, OA has about 6,500 groups in more than 75 countries. There are no requirements for membership except a sincere desire to stop eating compulsively. Everyone is there to offer mutual support. I have attended some of the meetings, and there is no weighing and no embarrassment. There is only a fellowship of compassionate

people who share a common problem. There are OA chapters everywhere, but if you have trouble locating one, go to www.oa.org, or send a long, self-addressed stamped envelope to Overeaters Anonymous World Service, P.O. Box 44020, Rio Rancho, NM 87174-4020. The email address is info(at)oa.org.

Regular eye exams can catch diseases early Dear Dr. K: How often should I have my eyes examined? What will the doctor check for during the exam? Dear Reader: Routine examinations in people without known eye diseases, and who don’t have hereditary eye diseases in their families, usually are done by optometrists. They also can be done by ophthalmologists (doctors who specialize in eye diseases). You should have your eyes examined every two to four years between the ages of 40 and 64, and then every one to two years after that. But this is just a general recommendation, as no one size fits all. You may need more frequent eye exams depending on your personal or

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff family medical history. (On my website, I’ve put a table showing how often you should see an eye doctor.) The exam usually starts with vision tests. First, you’re asked to look at rows of letters and numbers that keep getting smaller until you can no longer see them clearly. If you do not have optimal vision (20/20), the doctor will test whether different lenses can sharpen your vision and make it 20/20. That’s the basis for fitting you with corrective lenses (normal glasses or

contact lenses). The doctor will also evaluate your peripheral, or side, vision. Your color vision and depth perception may also be evaluated. After testing how well you see, the doctor will begin to examine your eyes themselves. First comes an examination of your outer eye. The doctor will look for signs of any underlying problems, such as infections, sties, cysts, tumors or lid muscle weakness. Do your pupils react normally to light? Do your two eyes move together in a coordinated fashion? Then comes an examination of the inside of your eye as seen through your pupil. The more wide open the pupil

is, the easier it is to see inside the eye. For that reason, the doctor will apply eye drops to dilate your pupils. First, the doctor examines the lens, which sits just behind the pupil. Is it crystal clear or does it have areas that are cloudy or opaque – called cataracts? Then there’s the fluid inside the eye. Does it have foreign particles or floaters? Next comes the retina, a flat layer of cells in the back of the eye. The image formed as light enters your eye is focused on the retina. Does it have deposits or hemorrhages? Does it have abnormal fragile young blood vessels? Is the nerve that connects the retina to the brain normal?

Finally, eye pressure is measured to detect signs of glaucoma. This can be done with an “air puff” test. Alternatively, after your eye is numbed with anesthetic drops, the doctor will gently touch your cornea with an instrument to measure the eye’s internal pressure. A regular eye exam is simple and painless. It can protect your sight by improving your vision through prescription lenses and by catching eye diseases early.

Drama is an important part of your education Dr. Wallace: I have a good part in the upcoming play. I really like acting, and my teacher says I’m very good. My problem is that my mother keeps threatening to make me quit the play whenever I do the slightest thing wrong. For example, I forgot to stop at the convenience store to buy her some ice cream and she got mad and said, “I ought to pull you out of the play for being so stupid.” I’m a nervous wreck. I would just die if she stopped me from performing. What would I do if she made me quit the play on opening night? It would be a disaster for the entire cast and the school itself. Please tell me what to do. I do my very best to please my mother, but at

or any other subject. Your mother must be made to understand this. Teens: About 2 million young people have a condition called impaired fasting glucose, which is linked to obesity and lack of proper exercise. That puts them at risk for diabetes and cardiovascular problems, according to research conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health. This may account for the dramatic rise doctors are seeing in teens suffering from adult-onset diabetes. The researchers found that 1 in 14 teens in a nationally representative sample of young people of both sexes had the pre-diabetic condition, which is manifested by

8SUDOKU

the prevalence of abnormally high blood-sugar levels after several hours without eating. Among overweight teens, 1 in 6 had the pre-diabetic condition. Americans have diabetes, most of them adults with type 2 diabetes, which impairs the body’s ability to properly use the blood sugar-relating hormone, insulin. This form of the disease is strongly linked to being overweight and inactivity. Almost 200,000 Americans, age 19 and younger, have type 1 (juvenile-onset) diabetes, in which the body produces little or no insulin. But type 2 diabetes among those 19 and younger has increased. Dr. Francine Kaufman, head of the Diabetes Center at Children’s

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Hospital in Los Angeles, stated that 25 percent of diabetic young people treated there have type 2 diabetes, compared with only 4 percent a decade ago. Teens, this is an alarming statistic. You are responsible for your bodies and your lives. Remember, obesity and inactivity trigger diabetes! This is a preventable condition. Don’t allow this to happen to you!

8CROSSWORD

Misconstruing the deal for west Stonewall Jackson, the Confederate general who died of pneumonia at only 39, said, “Always mystify, mislead and surprise the enemy if possible.” That certainly applies to bridge players, especially when the declarer. (It is usually dangerous for a defender to mislead his partner.) In this deal, South is in four hearts. Which card should declarer play at trick one after West leads the spade ace and East drops the four? South knows that East has just played a singleton (unless West made an unusual overcall in a four-card suit). But West does not know that. Suppose South plays his spade seven. Then West will know it is safe to cash his spade king, because East would not have dropped the four from 10-4-2. And the same applies if South follows suit with his 10. Instead, South must play his two. Then West will wonder if East started with 10-7-4. Yes, West might still get it right, thinking that East would have raised to two spades with three trumps and forgetting that the auction suggests East has a very weak hand. But West will be nervous about leading the spade king at trick two, lest South ruff it and later get a critical discard on dummy’s spade queen. As you can see, if West continues spades, the defenders take two spades, one spade ruff and the club king to defeat the contract. If West does anything else, the contract makes. If declarer is trying to disrupt the opponents’ signals, he should copy their methods. He should play low to try to discourage a continuation, or vice versa.
