Expert: Schmidt was speeding Trial on reckless homicide charges to continue today By ANDREA AZZO aazzo@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE — A 49-yearold Sycamore woman accused of reckless homicide was driving her pick-up truck 78 mph in a 45-mph zone just before the crash that killed a local couple in 2011, court testimony revealed Monday. Sgt. Robert Story of the Illinois State Police, who

handled Patricia Schmidt’s truck’s event data recorder, testified there was no indication Schmidt slowed down or drastically swerved to avoid the fatal crash Feb. 21, 2011, at Route 23 and Peace Road in Sycamore. Monday was the second day of the bench trial for Schmidt, of the 28500 block of Brickville Road in Sycamore, after a nearly two-month break from

the trial’s first day in January. Prosecutors argue Schmidt, who has a seizure condition, shouldn’t have been driving. She is standing trial on charges of reckless homicide and aggravated reckless driving in connection with the crash that killed Tim Getzelman, a 21-year-old Sycamore High School graduate, and his girlfriend, Alexis Weber, a 21-year-old Kaneland High

School graduate. If convicted of the more serious charge, reckless homicide, Schmidt could face probation or up to five years in prison. At Schmidt’s request, DeKalb County Presiding Judge Robbin Stuckert will determine her guilt or innocence. The trial is expected to continue today and Wednesday, as well as April 2 and 3.

Sycamore police Sgt. Steve Cook testified for the prosecution Monday, along with other police officers and a Ford Motor Co. engineer. Cook’s testimony revealed that several prescription pill bottles found at Schmidt’s home April 6, 2011, had warnings about driving while taking them. One of the labels for lorazepam, which is often prescribed to treat anxiety disorders, warned it may cause

Authorities have not yet determined the cause or source of the house fire, but it does not appear to be suspicious, authorities said. The Illinois State Fire Marshal’s office and DeKalb County Sheriff’s police are continuing their investigation. Eric Williams called 911 from outside the house at 485 Hyde Road, north of Earlville and just north of the DeKalb-LaSalle County line. He was taken to Mendota Hospital where he was treated for

minor burns and released; he has returned to Wisconsin to recover with family. When Earlville firefighters arrived 11 minutes after receiving the call, the home was fully engulfed in flames, Dumdie said. The home is located at the corner of Svedsen and Hyde Roads in southwest DeKalb County, about four miles north of Earlville. Jones’ and Dawn Williams’

KIEV, Ukraine – Russian troops said to be 16,000 strong tightened their stranglehold on Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula Monday, openly defying the U.S. and the European Union and rattling world capitals and stock markets. The West struggled to find a way to get Russia to back down, but with little beyond already threatened diplomatic and economic sanctions, global markets fell sharply over the prospect of violent upheaval in the heart of Europe. For its part, Moscow reiterated its price for ending the crisis: restoration of a deal reached with the opposition less than two weeks ago to form a national unity government in Kiev that represents pro-Russian as well as Ukrainian interests, with new elections to be held by December. Ukraine, meanwhile, accused Russia of piracy for blocking two of the besieged country’s warships and ordering them to surrender or be seized. The U.S. originally estimated that 6,000 Russian troops were dispatched to Crimea, but Ukraine’s mission to the United Nations said Monday that 16,000 had been deployed. That stoked fears that the Kremlin might carry out more land grabs in pro-Russian eastern Ukraine. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was headed to Kiev in an expression of support for Ukraine’s sovereignty, and the EU threatened a raft of punitive measures as it called an emergency summit for Thursday. The Pentagon said it was suspending exercises and other activities with the Russian military.

Mystery photo brings genealogy to mind DeKALB COUNTY LIFE Barry Schrader Mary and a relative occasionally seek out storage unit auctions where abandoned property is sold to the highest bidder. It reminded me of the reality TV series “Storage Wars,” but less dramatic. Last year they attended an auction at a ministorage facility on the south side of DeKalb and purchased a container of personal belongings that had been left in a unit. Among the items in the lot was this large frame with several family photos and a handwritten message “To my loving daughter” from an unnamed mother. I agreed to publish a photo of one part of the framed collage in hopes that a friend or family member will recognize the people. If someone does and contacts me through this column, then Mary will gladly return it to the family. This brings to mind a recent presentation I made to an ancestry/ genealogy class through the Lifelong Learning Institute at Northern Illinois University. I talked about preserving family photos, diaries, Bibles, legal papers and personal correspondence. Something sad in this day and age is the lack of personal letters because of email and all the other new digital media like Facebook and Twitter, which will deny future genealogists and historians essential information they have had access to in the past. Can you imagine how little biographical material we would be able to retrieve from the lives of Jefferson and Lincoln if all they used were digital devices? How will family researchers in the future be able to knowledgeably write about their ancestors?

Barry Schrader – editorial@daily-chronicle.com

This portion of a large framed collage of family photos includes the heading of a mother’s loving message to her daughter. By publishing this, it is hoped someone will be able to identify the family and the collection of photos can be returned. If I didn’t have the diaries from my grandmother and mother, plus numerous other documents like diplomas, teaching contracts, deeds, and scrapbooks full of clippings about family and friends, my genealogy project would be much less informative. Photographs often present another problem, whether they are digitally stored on a disk, hard drive, or in a photo album during the past century. Are there full names, dates and locations attached to each photo? Before my mother’s death in 1983, I was fortunate to be able to sit down with her, using a cassette recorder and have her number each page in four family photo albums and describe each photo as she remembered those

occasions and people, all the way back to her grade-school days in Waterman. If you have an aging parent, aunt, uncle or even a cousin who knows your family history, don’t hesitate another month to get them to share what they remember. Try to identify all the photos you may have preserved or that they have in their own family album. It will make the task so much easier for you or your descendants when it is time to produce a genealogy some time in the future.

Ellen’s celeb sefie a landmark media moment By DAVID BAUDER

The Associated Press NEW YORK – Ellen DeGeneres’ celeb-studded selfie from the mostwatched Oscars telecast in a decade was a landmark social media moment at a time online conversation is boosting television viewership and vice versa. It’s also a murky example of what is or isn’t product placement in a hyper-marketed world. Would the world’s most retweeted photo have been shot by an iPhone if Samsung hadn’t been a commercial sponsor of the Academy Awards? An estimated 43 million people watched “12 Years a Slave” win the Oscar for best picture Sunday night. It was the most-watched Academy Awards since 2004, when “Lord of the Rings: Return of the King” was the best picture. And it was the most popular entertainment event on TV since the “Friends” finale that year. The Oscars are generally the most-watched TV event of the year after the Super Bowl. Oscar night was also big for Jimmy Kimmel. The ABC late-night star drew just fewer than 7 million viewers for his post-Oscars special, the biggest audience he’s ever gotten on ABC, despite starting at 12:42 a.m. on the East

Your Telecoms push back on proposed NSA plan Community News Source. The ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON – When Apple, Google, Microsoft and other tech giants united in outrage last summer over the National Security Agency’s unfettered spying, telecommunications giants such as AT&T, Verizon and Sprint –whose customers are also the targets of secret government spying– remained noticeably mum. But now the phone companies are speaking up. In closed-door meetings with policymakers they are taking a less accommodating stance with government and rattling the historically tight bond between telecom and

the surveillance community. “It’s been extremely unusual for telecoms to resist any requests from the government,” said software engineer Zaki Manian of Palo Alto, who advocates against mass government surveillance. “The telecom companies have a long history of providing raw data dumps to the government and typically taking some money in return and calling it a day,” Manian said. Technology companies typically comply with requests for information about individual users but resist demands for bulk data. But

telecommunications companies share a connection with government unlike that of any other industry. They “have been tied to our national security agencies for all of their history,” said Susan Crawford, a visiting professor at Harvard Law School who was a special assistant to President Barack Obama for science, technology and innovation policy. During World War II and for decades after, telegraph companies such as Western Union – which was controlled by AT&T – turned over copies of international telegrams originating in the U.S. to the NSA and its

predecessor agency. In the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, government agents reviewed tens of thousands of telegrams each month under “Project Shamrock,” deemed by lawmakers to be the biggest intelligence-intercept operation in U.S. history. Since the earliest days of wiretapping in the late 19th century, telephone companies have assisted law enforcement and intelligence agencies. For decades, a series of laws cemented the relationship, including a 1994 wiretapping act that requires telecom companies to build networks that allow law enforcement to eavesdrop in real time.

DSW plans April 10 opening for DeKalb store By KATIE DAHLSTROM kdahlstrom@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Local shoe shoppers will have another 15,000 pairs to consider when DSW opens April 10 in DeKalb. DSW officials announced its new store at 2347 Sycamore Road, in the Oakland

Place Shopping Center, will open at 10 a.m. April 10. The store is located between Michael’s and T.J. Maxx, in part of the former Old Navy store that closed in 2012 after a decade. The other part of the former Old Navy will be occupied by discount retailer Five Below. DSW Inc., formerly known

as Discount Shoe Warehouse, offers a wide selection of brand name and designer dress, casual and athletic footwear and accessories for women, men and children. According to a news release, it operates 394 stores in 42 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, as well as 356 leased depart-

Sycamore project list OK’d By DEBBIE BEHRENDS dbehrends@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – By early April, the Sycamore City Council should have bids for the largest street project – the reconstruction and widening to three lanes of a section of Bethany Road from east of Peace Road to just east of Aster Road. Estimated to cost about $1.1 million, that project is just part of the city’s estimated $2.7 million street maintenance program discussed at Monday’s council meeting as part of the $5.2 million capital projects plan for the new fiscal year that beings May 1. Other streets which will see some work include sections of North Avenue, Kerr Street, Archie Place, Pleasant Street, Garden Court, East High Street, East Elm Street, South Walnut Street, South Locust Street, Turner Place, East Ottawa Street, Russet Lane, Brookhill Lane, Ironwood Drive, Woodgate Drive and Oakland Drive. City Manager Brian Gregory said the list includes a portion of Park Avenue that involves significant storm water and water system improvements. Storm water improvements are planned for this summer, with water

second phase of the sewage treatment plant expansion to include a centrifuge and excess flow chlorination. Gregory said the plant currently treats about 3 million gallons daily, and when the expansion is complete, will be capable of treating about 4.9 million gallons daily. Mundy said new technology has allowed for expansion of capacity without increasing the physical size of the plant. Nearly $430,000 will be spent from sales tax distributive funds to replace what Gregory calls rolling stock – police, fire and other city vehicles. “We have a systematic rotation to make sure our maintenance costs don’t exceed the value of the vehicle,” Gregory said. “Staff does its best to maintain vehicles.” Gregory outlined the average lifespan of various vehicles – roughly eight years for patrol cars and 25 years for fire engines, for example. With no discussion, alderman agreed to the outline presented by Gregory. He reminded them a budget workshop, to review the entire city budget, is scheduled for 7 p.m. March 19 in council

By the numbers Street maintenance program: $2.6 million Phase 2 of treatment plant expansion: $1.5 million Sidewalk repair program: $36,000 Rolling stock replacements: $430,000 Phone system: $25,000 Website redesign: unknown

main improvements on tap in spring 2015 and paving in summer 2015. “A couple of the streets on the list – North Avenue being one – are cement, so we want to make sure we can get those bids awarded early,” Mayor Ken Mundy said. “Cement work is more weather dependent.” Also on the project list is sidewalk repair and replacement, primarily on the streets receiving maintenance work. Mundy said the income from video gaming machines will fund the sidewalk program. “It’s a new source of revenue, and we think it’s a good match for those funds,” Mundy said. Another large expenditure, $1.5 million, will be the

chambers.

“A couple of the streets on the list – North Avenue being one – are cement, so we want to make sure we can get those bids awarded early.”

ments for other retailers in the U.S. Roger Hopkins, the economic development consultant for the city of DeKalb, said DSW was one of the top stores that shoppers said they wanted to see in DeKalb in a study conducted in 2011. Hopkins cited a retail marketplace study that showed

42 percent of DeKalb County shoppers buy shoes outside of the county. He believes DSW will reduce that percentage – referred to as “leakage” for the sales tax dollars that leak from the area – from 42 percent to less than 5 percent. “This should attract them to stay here rather than pushing those sales to places such

as Randall Road or Rockford,” Hopkins said. Between 25 and 40 fulland part-time employees will work at the 11,000-squarefoot store, according to a release from the company. The store’s normal business hours will be 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

PICTURE THIS Note to readers: This is part of an occasional series showcasing interesting photos by Daily Chronicle photographers

By MONICA MASCHAK mmaschak@shawmedia.com Every newspaper photographer who has covered basketball is familiar with this outtake. It’s a funny shot not for the people in it, but for the composition. I feel as if I could start a gallery full of basketball players who seem to have basketballs for heads. It’s inevitable, and I know it’s coming, but I can’t help but laugh every time I see it.

I sit under the basket or in the stands and snap away while the players race up and down the court. After the game ends, I begin siphoning through the hundreds of photos from the game, picking out the ones I feel best capture the energy and outcome of the game. I’m fully involved at this point, meticulously dissecting each photo’s composition just as a news editor reads a story. Then the basketball-headed boy or girl appears.On Fri-

day, Sycamore’s Mark Skelley was that basketball-head. I snapped the shot of him aiming for the hoop during the second quarter of the game against Morris. I don’t remember if he made the shot, but overall, it was a good game for Sycamore. The Spartans won, 60-30. Outside of this column, a photo like this wouldn’t make it into the newspaper, and for good reason, but a top 10 would definitely make a great comedy reel.

Schmidt trial continues today • CHARGES Continued from page A3 drowsiness and “may lessen your ability to perform dangerous tasks,” Cook read. Other medications such as one phenobarbital, used to control seizures, said to use care when operating a car or dangerous machinery, Cook testified. During cross-examination, defense attorney Jonathan Minkus emphasized none of the pill labels explicitly instructed Schmidt not to drive, but only to use care and talk to her doctor about making the decision to drive. Sycamore police detective Daniel Hoffman testified that he attempted to interview Schmidt’s neurologist, who works at Midwest Neurology in DeKalb,

to get more details about Schmidt’s health condition, but Hoffman testified he was told he could not talk to the doctor. During cross-examination, defense attorney Gregg Smith asked questions that emphasized that Hoffman, the lead investigator in the Schmidt case, did not recall some of the particulars of the case. Hoffman also testified he was not aware whether there was a doctor notification sent to the Illinois Secretary of State that Schmidt shouldn’t have been driving because of her physical disability. “As far as I know, we could not find anything,” Hoffman testified. Prosectors will call doctors, including a neurologist Schmidt was seeing, to testify when the trial continues at 10 a.m.today.

DeKALB – Sandra M. “Sandy” Busby, née Johnson, passed away peacefully surrounded by the love and prayers of her family in the early morning hours of Monday, March 3, 2014. She was born Nov. 19, 1942, in Sycamore, Ill., the daughter of Martin and Metta (Larsen) Johnson. Sandy attended Maple Park Grade School and graduated from Kaneland High School. She was united in marriage with Jerry N. Busby, on June 5, 1960. Together they filled 53 years with as much love and memories as anyone possibly could. She was a loving wife, mother and later the best grandmother to seven grandchildren. She loved baking cookies, making crafts and celebrated the holidays like no other. Outside of the home, she dedicated time to Relay for Life, Coaches vs. Cancer and Daffodil Days for the American Cancer Society. She loved basketball and attended most DeKalb High School boy’s and girl’s games, along with the Northern Illinois University guy’s and gal’s games. She cheered loud and often, but never was there a better “cheerleader” than when her husband, Jerry, played “town team ball,” law enforcement ball and, later, on the 65-year-old and older team. Sandy had a heart with room enough for everyone and was a great caregiver for her grandmother, mother, husband, grandson, uncles, aunts and many friends. Sandy worked at the DeKalb School District as a teacher’s aide after her children started school. She also was a drive-up supervisor at First National Bank in DeKalb. Sandy worked at Creative Calligraphy before retiring in 2001. She was a member of the First United Methodist Church of DeKalb. Sandy and her husband, and grandsons, Jimmer and Michael, started Fort Willow Creek in Paw Paw which became a playground that gave them thousands of memories and many happy, happy years. She is survived by her loving husband and best friend, Jerry; son, Fred; daughter, Yvonne; dear friend, Kelli Liebl, and her son, Brice, of DeKalb; six grandchildren, Michael, John, Brice, Jennifer, Emily and Amy. She also is survived by two sisters, Jane and Barbara, both of Maple Park; one aunt, Madonna Larsen Wise of Colorado; a niece, several nephews and cousins; as well as a countryside of friends that will never forget her. She was preceded in death by her parents, Martin and Metta; grandparents; one grandson, James Edward “Jimmer” Busby; a niece; great-niece; nephew; and several aunts and uncles. After cremation, the family will host a memorial service at a later date. A memorial has been established in her name to benefit both the American Cancer Society and DeKalb County Hospice.

DeKALB – Phyllis Lynette Gustafson, 85, of DeKalb, Ill., passed away peacefully Sunday, March 2, 2014, at Kishwaukee Hospital, DeKalb, with her family by her side. Born Sept. 16, 1928, in Chicago, the daughter of Willard E. and Roseneia A. (Klayer) Phelps, Phyllis met the love of her life, Richard L. Gustafson, while attending Northern Illinois State Teachers College, DeKalb. They were married July 29, 1950, in Chicago. She taught at Sycamore’s West Elementary School for seven years and 22 years in the Genoa-Kingston School District. The number of friends and students whose lives she touched are immeasurable. After her retirement from teaching in 1989, Phyllis and Richard traveled extensively around the world. She took the whole family on several vacations, making many happy memories. She was an avid bridge player, volunteered for Kishwaukee Hospital Auxiliary and was a member of Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority and The Federated Church in Sycamore. Phyllis loved her family and was never happier than when she was surrounded by them for the many family celebrations that brought them all together. Phyllis lived her life for her family and raised her children with great love and compassion. Moments spent with Phyllis were sure to be fun, lively and entertaining. She embodied what it means to honor and cherish family and friends. To meet her was to know you were immediately part of her family and would always be welcomed by her. Left to honor her memory are her loving daughters, Beth Gustafson of DeKalb and Sue (David) Finney of Sycamore; and grandchildren, Jennifer (Mike) Roach of Ingleside, Jaime (Chad) Davis of DeKalb, Melissa Rhodes (fiancé, Doug Remec) of Denver, and Nathan (Leona) Finney and Jacob (Kelsey) Finney, both of Sycamore. Her heart grew even bigger with the addition of her great-grandchildren, Olivia, Laken, Lilly and Lane, and a great-grandson-to-be. Phyllis’s beloved sister, Rosalee Krueger, of Butlerville, Ind., and her brother-in-law, Dr. Glen Gustafson of Neenah, Wis., were always in her heart. Also surviving are four nieces and nephews, Kris, Bob, David and Jennie, who were as precious to her as her own children. In her heavenly home, Phyllis will be joining her husband, Richard, who preceded her in death in 1999; parents, and other friends and family. Phyllis’s kind spirit and loving heart will be with her family always. The funeral service will be at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, March 8, at The Federated Church, 612 W. State St., Sycamore, with the Rev.

Slow beginning to early voting across Illinois By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Voters trickled into the polls Monday, the first day of early voting for primary contests that’ll help determine Illinois’ next governor, a U.S. senator and numerous local offices. Election officials reported a sluggish start with some predicting that the latest blast of wintry weather and a holiday that closed some municipal offices might have kept people away. Others said it was still early for people to have made up their minds, particularly with a four-way Republican gubernatorial race. “It’s not long lines,” Madison County Clerk Debbie Ming-Mendoza said. Roughly 100 people cast ballots at a county poll in the southwestern Illinois town of Edwardsville by midday. At a Peoria County spot, only one person had shown up before noon. In a Sangamon County location, less than two dozen cast ballots by afternoon. Still, election officials and candidates said a later-than-usual voting period and young voters might help boost numbers later on. Early voting runs the Saturday before the March 18 primary and the 2014 contest marks

the first time that 17-year-old Illinoisans can vote, provided they are 18 by the November election. Few election officials expected a large early-voting turnout for the primary. Statewide, about 8 percent of voters cast early ballots in the 2010 and 2012 primaries, according to the Illinois State Board of Elections. The board didn’t have Monday turnout estimates. “It is off to a slow start,” executive director Rupert Borgsmiller said. “The weather has dragged down a lot of the people.” In the Chicago area, election officials were optimistic on Casimir Pulaski Day, a holiday honoring a Polish cavalry officer. Early voting locations were open, though city and Cook County offices were closed. Roughly 12 percent of Chicago voters cast an early ballot in the 2010 and 2012 primary elections, according to election officials. “We do expect it to build,” said Langdon Neal, chairman of Chicago’s Board of Election Commissioners. Among those who showed was Thomas Plum, a teacher who said he usually votes early. The Democrat said he voted straight ticket and was motivated by recent Chicago schools closures.

Big or small, spending-cut efforts hitting roadblocks

Obama drives ahead with cleaner gas rules WASHINGTON – The Obama administration is moving forward with a dramatic reduction in sulfur in gasoline and tighter emissions standards for cars, arguing the move will eventually save thousands of lives a year. The oil and gas industry warns the Environmental Protection Agency rules are unnecessary and will drive up gas prices. The rules will also add to the cost of buying a car.

By ANDREW TAYLOR and CHARLES BABINGTON The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The budget gurus in Congress have failed for years to find a grand bargain to reduce the government’s long-term debt, so this year they decided to go small. Just 1 percentage point would be shaved from the annual cost-of-living increase in military pensions for veterans younger than age 62. That strategy failed, too. Congress promptly caved in to pressure from the powerful veterans lobby and voted last month to restore the bigger pension increases it had cut just two months earlier. It didn’t matter that the Pentagon itself called the reduction fair and necessary. Advocates of deficit reduction are discouraged. They said they fear Congress’ reversal on military pensions will lead to unraveling other recent spending cuts. “It’s tough to overstate how devastating that was,” said Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., one of just three senators who voted to keep the pension reduction in place. “It’s back to the drawing board, because that was a big blow.” Vague bromides and promises about deficits and spending are easy for politicians. Real spending cuts aren’t. Despite all the national talk of needing to tackle deficit spending, the military pen-

The rules have been in the works for years but are being finalized Monday. They’ll start taking effect in 2017. The EPA said gas prices should increase by only less than a penny. But an oil industry study puts the increase at 6 cents to 9 cents a gallon.

Israeli settlement construction doubles JERUSALEM – Israel central bureau of statistics said the number of housing starts in West Bank settlements more

than doubled in 2013. Monday’s announcement comes hours before Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is to meet with President Barack Obama in Washington. The two have been at odds over Israel’s settlement policies. In its annual roundup of the Israeli housing market, the bureau said work began on 2,534 new housing units in the settlements in 2013, compared with 1,133 in 2012.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., leaves the Senate Chamber on Sept. 30. Budget bargainers last year decided to go small rather than big and ambitious, giving up on an elusive “grand bargain” that simply wasn’t in the cards.

spending cuts. President Barack Obama, who’s scheduled to release his own federal budget today, reversed course on a deeply contentious proposal that would curb costof-living increases in Social Security. Republicans criticized Obama for backing down but then blasted the administration as it announced it was implementing a new round of Medicare cuts that Congress included in the health care overhaul four years ago.

sions debacle illustrates how Americans and their elected officials continue to resist – often fiercely – cuts to almost any specific program, big or small. “They picked one thing, and it stuck out like a sore thumb,” said Bob Bixby of the bipartisan Concord Coalition, which advocates lower deficits. The military pension vote signals the end of spending discipline efforts for a time, said Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, and may make it easier to reverse other cuts. Indeed, little-noticed but telling events over the past few weeks show lawmakers and the White House are backsliding on

South Moon BBQ on the move to bigger space By ANDREA AZZO

aazzo@shawmedia.com HINCKLEY – Jeffery Jones said he cannot wait until he can start working at the new location of Hinckley’s South Moon BBQ. Jones, a one-year employee at the restaurant’s current location, 146 E. Lincoln Highway, Hinckley, will make the move about 500 feet to the new location, 100 E. Lincoln Highway, when it opens, which owners are hoping will be later this month. Owners Katie and Harlan “Pork Chop” Logan are waiting until remodeling is finished before they open the new location, which is about five times bigger. “It’s plain and simple: the food is great,” Jones said. “You can’t find anything quite like it out here.” South Moon BBQ’s current restaurant is only about 700 square feet, said Katie Logan. The new 3,500-square-foot location will seat at least 75 people as opposed to only having eight tables. South Moon BBQ’s business started in 2009 as a roadside shack

Sycamore man named college president Sycamore resident Donald B. Taylor, Ph.D., has been named the eighth president of Cabrini College in Radnor, Pa. Taylor, provost and chief academic officer at Benedictine University in Lisle since 2008, will begin his presidency July 1. At Benedictine, Taylor helped to launch branch campuses in Springfield and Mesa, Ariz. He was instrumental in the growth of Benedictine from a small residential liberal arts college of 1,000 students to a comprehensive doctoral institution of nearly 10,000 students with a commitment to cultural, racial and religious diversity. He also helped to expand and diversify the university’s geographic outreach, education delivery methods and sources of revenue. Before his appointment as provost, Taylor served as the first dean of the College of Science at Benedictine, chairman of the Department of Biological Sciences, and program director for the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Program.

The new location will sell craft beers as soon as owners get their liquor license, which they expect to do by mid-April, Katie Logan said. There also will be an expanded menu which will offer the current daily specials – such as corned beef Wednesdays – every day, as well as more appetizers. Harlan Logan also will have his whole toy collection on display. The current restaurant can only fit so many of his Lone Ranger, Batman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Superman toy figures. “Lots of people come in just to

see the toy collection,” Katie Logan said. And people come in from far distances to eat the food. Harlan Logan said he gets calls from people in Chicago who ask if they can have their orders ready by the time they stop by. “That’s what I appreciate most about the business,” Harlan Logan said. “The customers are an addition to my family.” South Moon BBQ’s most popular items are its ribs and its Cliff Sandwich, which contains both brisket and pulled pork and is named after a customer. Katie Logan said the restaurant will still have the same family vibe once they expand, which customers frequently ask about. “Our customer service won’t change,” she said. “We strive to have a southern hometown feel when you walk in. That’s the way we want it.” South Moon BBQ is hiring for both locations. To apply, visit www. southmoonbbq.com or stop by the current location.

DANA HERRA Shaw Media Dana Herra was born in the small town of Sandwich and grew up in the even smaller town of Leland, just across the La Salle-DeKalb county line. She began writing stories as soon as she was old enough to hold a pen; before learning to read she would fill long sheets of paper with picture stories. Herra attended Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove, where she met the love of her life, her husband, Jeff. She went on to complete her bachelorʼs degree at Northern Illinois University, and moved to DeKalb after graduating in 2001. Though she wrote for her college newspapers, Herra resisted going into journalism at first. She began her career in sales and marketing, but always felt something was lacking. In 2005, she returned to her writing roots when she took a job as a reporter at the Daily Chronicle. She discovered great satisfaction in telling other peopleʼs stories and learned to cover a variety of news beats with enthusiasm. She became a leader in the newsroom, mentoring younger reporters and often acting as right-hand man to the news editor. After six years at the Chronicle, she assumed her current position as the editor of the Chronicleʼs sister publication, The MidWeek. She loves the relationship the paper has with the community and is always looking for new ways to reach people and tell their stories. Herra lives in Sycamore with her husband and their two sons, Elijah, 8, and Dylan, 2. The family enjoys taking advantage of the many great things the community offers, including visiting local museums, events and festivals and participating at Elijahʼs school and Boy Scout troop events.

Stay safe while staying warm

Protesters seek the rule of law What motivates people to demonstrate in central squares, day after day and week after week, against repressive regimes at the risk of life and limb? It’s a question raised most recently by events in Ukraine and Venezuela. The leaders and backers of the Yanukovych regime in Ukraine and the Maduro regime in Venezuela have had a ready answer. The demonstrators are fascists, neo-Nazis and criminals. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s sidekick, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, called the demonstrators “masked and armed people” with “black masks and Kalashnikov rifles” using “terrorist methods.” Backers of the Venezuelan regime, headed by Hugo Chavez’s chosen successor, Nicolas Maduro, said that the street demonstrators are selfish rich people and fascists trying to launch a coup d’etat. Others see the crowds differently. Timothy Snyder and Anne Applebaum, distinguished historians of Eastern European, stress that the Ukrainian protesters include Russian as well as Ukrainian speakers, people on the political left as well as the right, Christians and Jews and Crimean Tatars. In Venezuela, the New York Times reports, protesters include many with modest incomes, frustrated with horrific violent-crime rates, people worried not about investment portfolios, but about shortages of milk and toilet paper. From a distance, it’s impossible to gauge the motives and backgrounds of all the protesters, and surely there are among them some whom almost all Americans would consider repugnant. But it’s noteworthy that they are taking grave risks – dozens died in Kiev’s Maidan Nezalezhnosti and many have died in Venezuela cities – to oppose governments with roots in the political left. The protests against Yanukovych began when he shifted away from the European

VIEWS Michael Barone Union and toward Russia’s Vladimir Putin, who characterized the dissolution of the Soviet empire as the greatest tragedy of the 20th century (a title for which there is vigorous competition). In Venezuela, Chavez and Maduro embraced socialism, with the state taking over oil operations and revenues, and vigorously proclaimed their support for Fidel and Raul Castro’s Communist Cuba. American mainstream media, nostalgic for Vietnam War protests, tend to regard protests as the province of the political left. They hailed the Occupy Wall Street encampments, despite their violent crime and gauzy pronouncements, as heralding an uprising of the virtuous 99 percent. Despite such encouragement, Occupy fizzled and polls showed that the demand for redressing “income inequality” was so weak that, contrary to advance word, Barack Obama scarcely mentioned the phrase in his State of the Union address. Certainly the protesters in Ukraine and Venezuela are not seeking the left-wing goal of income redistribution. The Ukrainians are not seeking a larger welfare state, and the Venezuelans have learned from hard experience that Chavez’s policies produced not redistribution, but economic destruction. But you run up against a paradox if you see the demonstrations as a demand for electoral democracy. In Ukraine, they resulted in the ouster of a leader who was in fact elected. Chavez and Maduro also won elections, although there is plenty of evidence of fraud and intimidation. I think it’s more helpful to see the pro-

testers as rebelling against the absence of the rule of law. Ukraine, like Russia, saw the gobbling up of state property by oligarchs in the 1990s. Venezuela has seen the destruction of a free press and systematic plundering of the private sector. Both have seen leaders tearing up constitutions. And the protesters can see in their own neighborhoods alternatives to Yanukovych’s patrons in Russia and Chavez’s and Maduro’s beloved Cuba. Ukrainian protestors waved the European Union flag and undoubtedly envy the success of EU (and NATO) neighbors Poland and Slovakia in creating thriving economies underpinned by the rule of law. Venezuelans (at least until Maduro jammed Colombian TV) have nearby the example of Colombia, which subdued the narcoterrorist FARC guerrillas and now is enjoying economic growth and the rule of law as well. Unfortunately, it may be as difficult for protesters to reach these goals as it has been for those who flocked to the squares in the Arab spring. Ukraine still suffers from Soviet-era lassitude and fatalism, and Venezuela from the curse of supposing oil deposits guarantee a comfortable life. Russia may still move into Ukraine’s Russian-speaking Crimea and industrial east. Castro goons may keep killing in Caracas. The rule of law is hard to establish and easy to dismantle. Something to keep in mind as our president keeps unilaterally rewriting Obamacare and our IRS targets his political opponents.

Don’t take ‘temporary’ out of tax hike SPRINGFIELD – Back in 2011, the State of Illinois began snatching away an extra week’s worth of our pay. At the time, we were assured of two things: The tax hike was necessary, and it would be temporary. But like so much that politicians tell us, both statements are questionable. First of all, we were told that the increase was necessary to help put the state’s fiscal house in order and to pay down the backlog of unpaid bills. But even after jacking up our taxes, the state’s fiscal condition is pathetic. Springfield is paying its bills many months late, the state pensions are the worst funded of any state and Illinois’ credit rating is the worst of any state in the nation. Instead of using the extra tax dollars to pay down bills, Springfield politicians used it to increase spending. That shouldn’t come as a surprise. Most politicians are far more comfortable spending than saving. After all, it’s what they do best. There are plenty of myths surrounding this tax hike. The most persistent – and most annoying – is that the politicians only

VIEWS Scott Reeder raised our income taxes by 2 percent. Even as abysmal as I was in high school math, I can tell you that raising the income tax rate from 3 percent to 5 percent is a tax hike of 67 percent – not 2 percent. The fact that so many politicians persist in claiming it was only 2 percent makes one wonder if: A. They aren’t very bright. B. They aren’t particularly honest. C. That’s what their leaders have told them to say. D. All of the above. It being Springfield, any of these answers may be correct. Some would have you believe this tax hike is picayune – hardly noticeable for the average household. Nonsense. The tax hike alone is the equivalent of one week’s pay for every worker in Illinois. And what have workers gotten in return? Not much. The state is still broke.

Spending is on the upswing. Bills are still going unpaid. And guess what? Now they are talking about taking the “temporary” out of the income tax increase. Some lawmakers and pundits are saying it’s time for Illinois to make the tax hike permanent while others are saying perhaps we ought to move back the law’s January 2015 sunset date. To both proposed laws I can only say, baloney. The state hasn’t used the extra money wisely this year or in 2013, 2012 or 2011 what makes our leaders think they will start using it wisely if it becomes permanent? State revenues are at their highest level in Illinois’ 198-year history. Springfield has a problem with spending – not revenue. It’s time for our lawmakers to say “goodbye” to the tax hike and embrace difficult spending decisions.

Another weekend of cold temperatures has led to fires in homes in DeKalb County. At one home, outside Earlville, two people were killed. Although the cause of that blaze is not yet determined, home fire danger is highest during the winter months, and as it appears that there are some weeks of winter yet to go, it is worth noting that fire safety is critical for everyone to consider. The U.S. Fire Administration said that winter fires cause more than $2 billion in property damage and kill more than 900 people each year. Two-thirds of those fires occur in single-family homes and duplexes, and most occur between 5 and 8 p.m. – when people generally are home and awake. Below-zero temperatures have been so common this winter that space heaters have been working overtime, and at least one fire in DeKalb has been ignited by a For the record space heater that was left on too close to flammable mateThe U.S. Fire Administrarial. tion said that winter fires “It’s been a longer winter than normal, and it’s been a cause more than $2 billion lot colder so people have had in property damage and to resort to other means of kill more than 900 people heating,” DeKalb Fire Chief each year. Eric Hicks said. “In past winters we haven’t had long stretches of below zero temps and people have had to overwork their furnace.” Home space heaters should be certified by Underwriters’ Laboratories and if possible, protect people – especially children – from direct contact with the heat element. It’s important not to use extension cords with space heaters and to not leave them running unattended, said DeKalb. Furnaces should be kept in good working condition – cracked heat exchangers can allow odorless, colorless and deadly carbon monoxide into the home. If you use a wood stove or wood-burning fireplace to heat your house, make sure to have the chimney cleaned regularly, never leave them burning unattended, and properly dispose of ashes. It’s also critical to have working carbon monoxide and smoke detectors in homes, along with an escape plan in case of emergency. It looks as though there will be a chill in the air for weeks to come. It’s important to stay warm, but just as important to practice fire safety.

Families key in poverty fight Much has been written on the 50th anniversary of the War on Poverty, and the trillions of dollars that have been spent to improve the lives of the least fortunate among us. Yet after 50 years, poverty statistics are little changed. The official measure of those living in poverty now stands at 15 percent, almost exactly the same as in the 1960s. Thus, the question: After so much money and so much effort, why are more than 47 million people in the United States poor? There aren’t simple answers to this question. Some factors are beyond our control, such as rapid advances in technology and the globalization of labor. Both dramatically affected less educated and unskilled workers. Other adverse factors, however, were thought to be lessened by intelligent government policies. Those policies have not been as effective as was hoped. Today, one factor in particular deserves greater attention: marriage. In 2012, among families headed by two married parents the poverty level was 7.5 percent. In families headed by a single mother, the level was 34 percent over four times higher. In addition, children growing up in a home without a father are three times more likely to end up in jail and 50 percent more likely to be poor as adults. Despite overwhelming evidence of the importance of marriage in avoiding poverty and other social ills, government and society haven’t yet figured out how to effectively promote successful marriages. This is especially ironic in light of the huge costs involved in dealing with many children of single-parent families. The Heritage Foundation reports that these children are more likely to be physically abused, smoke, drink, drop out of high school, use drugs, and engage in violent and criminal behavior. Of course, not all single-parent children fit into any of these categories. There are almost heroic single parents (especially mothers) who raise wonderful children. But both statistics and common sense tell us that intact families are ideal, and an important part of a cohesive society. Government can help by rethinking existing tax and welfare policies, and how they are linked to marriage. At present the focus is almost exclusively on helping those who aren’t married, or aren’t raising children in intact marriages. There are almost no incentives or rewards for marriages and intact families. Many critics summarize current government policies by saying they subsidize failure and ignore success. The statistics are stunning and absolutely awful. After 50 years, it’s time to try some new ideas.

Wootton rehabing hip, waiting for free agency Weekend trips to Jamaica and San Diego helped Corey Wootton escape Chicago’s winter, while giving him a break from trips to Halas Hall, where his rehabilitation process has been in full swing after hip surgery. But come Friday, even those trips will end. “They kind of kick us out,” Wootton said. Wootton is one of the Bears’ 20 pending free agents. And right now, free agency is where the Bears’ most versatile defensive linemen is headed. “I’m probably going to test the market and see what’s out there,” Wootton said Monday. “I’m just really excited to see what’s going on. Obviously, I would like to stay with the Bears, but I don’t know how it’s looking. I guess we’ll have a better understanding when free agency happens.” At 26, Wootton figures to garner considerable interest once the negotiating window opens Saturday (free agents can’t sign until March 11). The only thing seemingly preventing him from being highly sought after is his health. Wootton underwent surgery on his right hip in January to correct a problem that’s been nagging him for two seasons. But he is on track to be ready when training camps open, proudly saying he’ll be 100 percent by July. – Adam L. Jahns, Chicago Sun-Times

Trailing by six at halftime of the Class 4A Belvidere North Regional quarterfinal against the host Blue Thunder, the Barbs scored 30 points in the third quarter on their way to an 82-71 win. “Halftime we’re sitting there, ‘Wow this could be the last game.’ We had to pick it up or else we could have been

Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. DeKalb ended the first half on a 5-0 run to cut the Belvidere North lead, which the Blue Thunder built on the strength of strong 3-point shooting. Belvidere North’s shooters caught fire in the first quarter, hitting four 3-pointers, and added another 3 in the second. Barbs coach Dave Rohlman said his team was more aggressive on defense against the Blue Thunder sharp-shooters in the second half.

DeKALB – If college football’s 10-second proposal is approved Thursday, there could be some significant change to the game. The proposal calls for offenses to be required to wait 10 seconds to snap the ball to allow defensive substitutions, with the exception being in the last two minutes of each half. If the offense were to snap the ball to early, it would receive a 5-yard delay-of-game penalty. The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel will vote on the matter Thursday. If passed, it would take effect this fall. C o a c h e s around the country have voiced their displeasure. Arizona’s Rich Rodriguez tweet- Rod Carey ed Feb. 12: “When you snap the ball has always been a fundamental edge for the offense – what’s next – 3 downs like Canada?” Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy sent out this tweet: “The 10-second rule is like asking basketball to take away the shot clock - Boring! It’s like asking a blitzing linebacker to raise his hand” Add Northern Illinois’ Rod Carey to the list of coaches who isn’t a fan of the new proposal. “If you’re down by 21 points in the middle of the third quarter, you’re going to see a boring football game,” Carey said last week. “Offenses aren’t going to have the ability to go into two-minute offense and try to get back in the game. You’re going to limit possessions by saying they can’t snap it when you want to snap it.” Rule change proposals come through every other year, and this is an off year. However, proposals can be made if they concern player safety, which is the supposed reasoning behind the 10-second rule. Alabama coach Nick Saban and Arkansas’ Bret Bielema, both of whom run prostyle offenses, are believed to be two main proponents behind this rule.

NETS 96, BULLS 80

Bulls get sloppy in defeat By SETH GRUEN sgruen@suntimes.com NEW YORK – What was amazing about the Bulls’ 96-80 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night at the Barclays Center was that it wasn’t more lopsided. The Bulls committed 28 turnovers, the sole focus of the loss and a number that usually spells an even bigger disparity than the final score indicated. This came a day after they committed a franchise-record low three turnovers in Sunday’s win over the New York Knicks. That mark was one more than the NBA-record low. The Bulls’ carelessness with the ball netted Brooklyn 30 points off turnovers. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said that a smaller Nets lineup swarmed the

Tanking never was going to work Let’s go way, way back – all the way back to three months ago when pitchfork-armed citizens were outside the Berto Center clamoring for a military vehicle. Specifically, a tank. You know who you are: the people who wanted the Bulls to give up on this season in word and deed to get one of the top picks in the 2014 NBA Draft. Derrick Rose’s other knee had betrayed him, and you had given up on the present in favor of a future that might include Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid or Andrew Wiggins. You wanted an everybody-must-go sale. You wanted the Bulls to tank the season. I want to be clear here: I’m not blaming you for your moment of weakness. And what follows isn’t a finger-wagging. You were mired in despair. There still are questions about what Rose will be like when he returns. But a tanking never was going to happen. Never. And the notion that coach Tom Thibodeau would fail with lesser players at his disposal had the whiff of the absurd to it. This guy could win NBA games with you, me and three Shetland ponies. That’s why the discussion was silly. If the playoffs started today, the Bulls would be the third seed or fourth seed in the East-

VIEWS Rick Morrissey ern Conference, depending on the outcome of their game Monday in Brooklyn. As we all know, the East isn’t exactly a crucible. There are two great teams, the Heat and the Pacers, and there is everybody else. The Knicks, whom the Bulls dispatched Sunday, are awful. It’s fair to ask what the Bulls’ Tom recent surge Thibodeau means in light of the weakness of the competition in the East. This: It would have taken a spectacular tanking, a tanking probably beyond the Bulls’ capacity, for them to have a good chance in the lottery. And if the Bulls end up losing in the second round of the playoffs, what does it all mean? It means that when Rose comes back, a decent team will be waiting for him. It means there still is hope. Tanking doesn’t always work. Former Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo recently admitted that he tried to tank the lockout-shortened

Blackhawks’ Hossa out for 2 to 3 weeks

CHICAGO – The Blackhawks and forward Brandon Bollig have agreed to a three-year contract extension through the 2016-17 season. Bollig, 27, has a career-high 12 points (six goals, six assists) in 62 games. He leads the team with 138 hits and 69 penalty minutes.

all day. He plays to his 6 feet, 11 inches when he needs to; the rest of the time he acts like a pass-first guard. It’s how he got a triple-double against the Knicks. The Bulls haven’t missed a beat since they traded Luol Deng to Cleveland in January. That’s Thibodeau’s coaching, that’s the talent and will of the players, and that’s the weak East. No apologies necessary. And no what-ifs allowed. Gar-Pax and Thibodeau are not wired to throw a season. It never was going to happen. Jimmer Fredette is Thibodeau’s latest reclamation project. Is anyone willing to bet against the project’s success? Thibs has made D.J. Augustin look like a pro, something the point guard hasn’t always resembled. Thibodeau helped make Nate Robinson and Marco Belinelli money. The Bulls are in excellent position to sign the Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony after the season. Would Thibodeau be able to turn him into a team player? There are projects and then there are miracles. But I’d pay to see if Thibs can make the blind play “D.”

Cogs’ season ends in quarterfinals

Kaneland graduate and Holy Cross senior men’s basketball forward Dave Dudzinski was named to the All-Patriot League first team, as announced Monday by the league. Dudzinski averaged a teambest 15.3 points, 7.5 rebounds and 0.7 blocked shots a game this season, while hitting 47.6 percent (161 of 338) of his field goal attempts and 75.2 percent (112 of 149) of his free throws. He finished the regular season ranked first in the league in rebounding, third in scoring, 10th in blocked shots, 12th in free throw percentage and 14th in field goal percentage. Holy Cross, the third seed in the Patriot League tournament, will play sixth-seeded Lehigh in the quarterfinals at 7 p.m. Wednesday at home.

Blackhawks, Bollig agree to extension

2011-12 season. Toronto finished 23-43 and ended up with the eighth pick overall. I’d say that result is the rule more than the exception. For the heck of it, try to imagine how the Raptors would have fared with Thibodeau as their coach that season. There’s the scene in “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” in which the Black Knight reacts to getting his arms cut off by King Arthur by calling it “just a flesh wound.” That’s how it would have been with Thibodeau. After each trade, he would have said the team had “more than enough” to win. And given his abilities, maybe he would have been right. The problem is that when someone lauds Thibodeau’s coaching, it can sound like a patronizing shot at the players. The Bulls as constructed have talent, and they would have won games this season with whoever was coaching them. Maybe not as often, but they would have won. Joakim Noah’s heart thumps just as loudly as Thibodeau’s does. Same with Jimmy Butler’s. Noah has come so far since his first few years with the Bulls, when he was immature and combative. Now he’s a leader, and his teammates want to follow him. They need to be in shape for that. He can run

DeKalb’s Micah Fagerstrom (back) shoots under heavy pressure from a Belvidere North defender during in the third quarter of Monday night’s Class 4A Regional quarterfinal game against Belvidere North in Belvidere. The Barbs won, 82-71.

When: 6 p.m. today Where: University Arena, Kalamazoo, Mich. Radio: AM-1360, 98.9-FM Last meeting: Western Michigan defeated NIU, 74-71, Feb. 9 in DeKalb. Scouting the Broncos: Western Michigan sits atop the Mid-American Conference West in a tie with Toledo at 12-4. The Broncos (19-9, 12-4 MAC) would have the first-place spot to themselves but suffered a 96-85 overtime loss Saturday in Toledo. Senior guard David Brown leads the MAC in scoring at 19.3 points a game. Senior center Shayne

Whittington averages 16. The Broncos are 12-2 at home. Outlook: NIU (13-15, 7-9 MAC) sits in a three-way tie with Kent State and Miami (Ohio) for eighth place in the MAC. The league’s No. 5-8 seeds will host first-round conference tournament games. A victory over the Broncos would be a nice step towards a MAC tournament game in DeKalb. After upsetting Toledo last week, NIU dropped a 52-46 decision to Eastern Michigan on Saturday. Aaric Armstead was the lone Huskie to score in double figures with an 11-point effort. – Steve Nitz, snitz@shawmedia.com

on proposal Thursday Kitchen scores 21 for Barbs Vote • RULE PROPOSAL • BARBS Continued from page B1 “I thought we were too far from those guys. Even though we talked about it the last couple of days, we still had guys that, when the ball went inside, would turn around and dig instead of cover up, so we couldn’t get back to the shooters in time,” Rohlman said. “We finally stopped moving from them and just went out and covered them. I thought we bothered the shooters a lot better.” As DeKalb built the lead after halftime – a Kitchen 3 with about 10 seconds remaining in the third gave the Barbs a nine-point lead – it was able to move the ball around and find

the open man. The Barbs’ held a comfortable lead throughout the final period. “The extra pass,” Kitchen said. “We had the wide-open shooter, it was big,” Kitchen had 21 points for DeKalb. Sophomore point guard Rudy Lopez led the Barbs with 23. The Barbs got plenty of production from their bench, with sophomore guard Michael Pollack finishing with 16 points and fellow sophomore Ethan Conroy adding 10. Senior guard Patrick Aves hit two big 3s in the second half and finished with six points. “We flashed [Pollack] to the high post and he got a couple of real good looks there, which is a shot that’s certainly in his repertoire,” Rohlman said.

Continued from page B1 Carey said he has yet to see any evidence that links spread offenses to higher injury numbers. He said to his knowledge, rule changes usually are brought up at the American Football Coaches Association convention, which took place in Indianapolis in January, and voted on by the coaches before being pushed to the rules committee, which then recommends them to the NCAA. Carey said with this, that wasn’t the case, though he recently did receive a survey on the issue. USA Today recently reported that the 10-second rule will be reconsidered this

week by the NCAA Football Rules Committee, which could choose to modify or withdrawl the proposal. “That’s a problem that I have is how do we get to that point where it has to be in response to this rule? When [coaches are] usually supposed to get proactive about rules,” Carey said. “That’s my issue that I’ve had, because I’ve said that all along, if someone can show me data that us taking more snaps leads to more injuries, like imperial data, yeah, player safety is all of us, we’re all on board with that. “There isn’t a coach on country that wouldn’t be on board with that. I’d be leading the charge, but there is no data.”

Noah says injured ankle had no effect on Monday’s performance • BULLS Continued from page B1 The way they compensate offensively is with ball move-

ment. In Sunday’s win against the Knicks, they passed the ball as well as they have all season. Center Joakim Noah had 14 assists Sunday while Monday the Bulls combined for

only 12 as a team. Noah, who injured his ankle Sunday, said he felt no ill effects from the injury in Monday’s game. “They were aggressive on

the pick-and-roll,” Noah said. “We just made poor decisions with the ball. We didn’t take care of the ball tonight. I’ve got to do a better job of taking care of the ball.”

SPRINT CUP SERIES

Wins now mean everything CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Joey Logano lined up directly behind Kevin Harvick and followed him nose-to-tail around the track and across the line for the final restart. He was stalking the leader, looking for what he knew would be his only chance to steal the victory from Harvick. Logano aggressively darted inside of Harvick and briefly flirted with making it a three-wide race before he ran out of real estate at Phoenix International Raceway. The move didn’t work, but he had to go for it Sunday. Under NASCAR’s new emphasis on winning, there IN THE was little upside to Logano stayPITS ing put those Jenna final nine laps. Fryer “It’s all about the win, right?” said Logano, who was third on the final restart and settled for fourth. “Third place really doesn’t mean anything. Last year, you may have taken a third place and the points, but this year it’s like, ‘Hey, go for it.’ ” NASCAR chairman Brian France had grown to despise points racing – that practice of a driver taking few risks in the closing laps of a race, settling for a solid finish, thanking a long list of sponsors and the boys back at the shop, then exulting on live TV about the great points finish. Points racing already was in his crosshairs last March, when feuding drivers Logano and Denny Hamlin refused to give an inch as they raced for the win at California. Their stubbornness led to a wreck that took them both out of contention on the final lap, and France was hooked. He wanted drivers to race with that same passion and desire every week, and for wins to matter that much. So France overhauled the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship format, and a regular-season victory virtually guarantees race winners a spot in the 16-driver field. It raised the stakes a week ago at the end of an already frantic Daytona 500, and winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. reveled in his post-race celebration about not having to spend the next six months of the season worrying about the postseason. “If everybody is telling the truth, we’ve won a race, we should be in it, so I’m not going to worry about it,” he laughed. Harvick secured the same fate Sunday by holding off four separate challenges over the final 40 laps to preserve the victory in a race he dominated. As he celebrated in Victory Lane with his new Stewart-Haas Racing teammates, he was greeted by new team owner Gene Haas,

Kevin Harvick celebrates in Victory Lane with his crew after winning Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in Avondale, Ariz. who seemed bewildered by the consequences of Harvick’s win. “The points aren’t nearly as important as the wins,” he said in an almost questioning tone. “We’re talking about the Chase already.” Indeed, in the second race of the season, we’re talking about the Chase already. So much so that Brad Keselowski, who has a pair of third-place finishes to start the season and is a mere six points out of the Sprint Cup Series points lead, isn’t stoked about what he’s left on the table. “It feels good to run up front, be competitive, but under this system, wins are the only things that count,” he said. “Last year, you would have said seconds and thirds are great, but this year they’re not. They’re so-so. Just know we have to be a little bit better and move on from here.” As France said in the prerace driver meeting before the Daytona 500, drivers have an opportunity each week to “punch their ticket” into the Chase. They can’t ride around in second or third or fifth or eighth place anymore. They’ve got to talk strategy with their teams, crunch fuel mileage numbers, take risks and gambles. They’ve got to go for broke when the opportunity exists. They’ve got to give 100 percent. Logano has three career victories in 185 career Sprint Cup starts. He doesn’t know how many opportunities he’ll have to punch his ticket, so when he saw a chance, he did what France expects. “With a win being so important, you

might as well go for it and I tried to stuff it in there three-wide,” he said. “Gave up a spot by doing that, but overall it is all about the win.” As the season progresses, teams might now attempt to stretch fuel far longer than ever before. What’s the harm in gambling? A Swan Racing or HScott Motorsports or Front Row Motorsports could use some trick strategy to luck into a win, make the Chase and change the entire complexion of their program. The format also gives a new lease to Danica Patrick, who a month ago simply wanted to consistently finish inside the top 20 this season and improve from last year. But should she now get a win at a restrictor plate race – or Michigan or Martinsville, where she runs well – then suddenly she’s in the Chase, too. All it takes is a decent run and, in some cases, throwing caution to the wind. Earnhardt did it Sunday at Phoenix when crew chief Steve Letarte told him not to worry about saving fuel – a call Letarte would have made even without the Daytona 500 as a safety net. “The new system definitely allowed us to be more carefree about that and not have to really think it over,” Earnhardt said. In the end, Harvick cruised to the win. But he knew everyone was going to take their best shot, just as they will all season long.

ADVICE & PUZZLES

Page B4 • Tuesday, March 4, 2014

Daily Chronicle / Daily-Chronicle.com

Pregnant mom wants only another princess Dear Abby: I’m a single mother of a beautiful 2-yearold daughter. I have always pictured myself as a mom of four little princesses. When I fantasized about having children, I imagined fairy tales, ballet, cheerleading, dress-up, tea parties – all girl things. Now I’m expecting a little boy and I feel heartbroken. When I learned my first was a girl, I couldn’t wait to meet her. I bought her everything pink and frilly. Here I am eight weeks from my due date, and I have yet to buy this baby a single thing. When I look at baby boy items, I become severely depressed. I’m no longer with the baby’s father. He and his family are very excited about

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips the baby, as he will be the only male grandchild for this generation. The truth is, the more I think about it, the more I am pulled in the direction of signing over my parental rights to my ex. At least he really wants him, whereas I don’t. I know this sounds terrible and selfish. I feel like a monster, but I can’t help it. My family is totally against it. My dad says I shouldn’t even allow my ex to visit our son in the hospital after he’s born. No one will listen to how I

feel. They keep saying my feelings will change after the baby is born, but I doubt it. I just need some guidance. – Undeserving Title Of Mommy Dear Mommy: I don’t think you are a monster. I DO think you are not thinking objectively right now. Let me point out that life doesn’t always go the way we fantasize. Because you imagined that you’d be the mother of four little princesses doesn’t guarantee that you WILL be. I see no need to rush into signing any papers right now, regardless of how eager your boyfriend and his parents are about the baby. There will be time for that later, if you still want to. For now, ask your parents to help you

select some baby boy outfits, and tell your doctor about all of your feelings because they may be hormonal. You might benefit from some professional counseling right now – more than I can offer you – and I urge you to get it before doing anything you might later regret. Dear Abby: I received a restaurant gift card from some friends. When I presented it at a restaurant, it was refused as “never having been activated through purchase.” I called my friends to let them know, thinking it was a mistake on the part of the restaurant at the time it was purchased. They said they would come by and pick up the card. I have heard

nothing from them since, and I haven’t written a thank-you note or made any further attempt to contact them. Was I right in calling them? Do I now ignore the whole thing? – Gift Card Denied Dear G.C.D.: You did nothing wrong in calling your friends to tell them what happened. They may not have picked it up because they were embarrassed, or because they really never intended to activate it. I don’t think it’s necessarily worth ending a relationship over – IF you want to continue a friendship with people whose credibility you question.

People prone to addiction wired differently Dear Dr. K: Is it true that some people are more vulnerable to addiction than others? Why? Dear Reader: We tend to think about the ravages of addiction mainly when it takes a celebrity from us. Recently the actor Philip Seymour Hoffman died, at 46, of an apparent overdose of heroin. In 2012, it was the singer Whitney Houston, at 49. Both were once-in-a-generation talents – and both gone, just like that. The use of illicit drugs and alcohol takes the lives of nearly 300 people every day in the United States. (Tobacco takes more than 1,000 every day.) Though most did not become famous in the way that

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff Philip Seymour Hoffman and Whitney Houston were, each had friends and family who mourn their passing. Fortunately, not every person who drinks alcohol or tries drugs becomes dependent. Why, then, do some people develop addiction while others do not? Our genes account for about half of our risk for addiction. The environment in which people grow up and their personal histories also play an important role. People who were abused or neglected as children, for

example, have a higher risk of developing addiction than children who were nurtured. People with mental illness are also particularly vulnerable. Still, although some people are more at risk for addiction than others, nobody is immune to addiction. That’s because we are all wired to respond similarly to rewards. The brain registers all forms of pleasure in the same way: by releasing the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain. That’s true whether the pleasure originates with a drug, a monetary reward, sex or a satisfying meal. (I’ve put an illustration of this reward pathway on my website, AskDoctorK.com.) But drugs of abuse, such as nicotine or heroin, release

two to 10 times the amount of dopamine as do natural rewards – and they do it more quickly and more reliably. It’s possible that people who get hooked more easily have a more robust dopamine response. In some way, they are “wired differently.” I saw Philip Seymour Hoffman play Willy Loman in “Death of a Salesman.” As the play opened, the stage was unlit. At the far left was a luminous blue light, like the sky at the end of a clear day. A man carrying a briefcase in each hand, Loman, is seen in silhouette. He is stooped, trudging slowly, as dejected as a person can be. The road had not been kind. No one was buying. He opens the door to his

home, his family waiting for him inside. Suddenly, he is the salesman: confident, jostling with his sons, talking about what a success the trip had been. Playing the role he had to play, to avoid taking his own life. I will remember that entrance, and many other moments from Hoffman’s films, all of my life. Acting doesn’t get any better. Gone, just like that. We have to solve the plague of addiction, and we will. In the past 20 years, scientists have learned a lot about the brain chemistry of addiction. That knowledge will lead to better treatments.

Driving after drinking is a destructive mix Dr. Wallace: Our high school has started a new club on campus, Students Against Drunk Driving. Its main purpose is to educate students about the dangers of drinking and driving. I have joined this club and have been elected vice president. My main duty is to put out a blurb to the student body about drinking and driving. Since SADD is a national organization, I will be getting much data and information from its headquarters. But our supply of materials hasn’t arrived yet, so I would appreciate any information that would provide a “wakeup” to those students who might drink and then drive. – Gina, Philadelphia, Pa.

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace Gina: A federal study reported that over 17,000 people were killed last year in alcohol- or drug-related automobile crashes, and a high percentage of them were teens. The report also reported that a staggering 28 percent of the nation’s estimated 166 million drivers, regularly or sometimes, consume alcohol or drugs within two hours of driving. The study also found that driving after drug use is more common among male drivers 16 to 20. Your school should be commended for having

TODAY – Keep your goals in sight, and dedicate your energy to achieving your dreams. It is not realistic or beneficial to try to do everything for others. Your time will be much better spent if you focus on what’s most important to you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) – Choose an occupation that interests you, and learn as much as you can about it. Developing a plan for the future will lead to advancement. Concentrate on increasing your employability. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Nothing will be able to hold you back today. Your energy level is high, and you are in a happy frame of mind. Share your enthusiasm to attract followers. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Address a problem that is concerning you. Listen carefully to the advice of individuals who have experienced similar difficulties, and you may find the solution you have been looking for. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – There are many changes on the horizon. A chance encounter will lead to a very special partnership. You will be praised and congratulated for your unselfish contribution to a worthy cause. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Now’s the time to take special care of your personal interests. You should refuse any loan requests or other pleas for financial contributions. Others may not be as trustworthy as you believe. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Romance and enjoyment will be the order of the day. Your goals are being realized through perseverance and hard work. Travel and socializing will help develop a rewarding insight. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Slow down and take a good look at your commitments and challenges. You risk damaging your health if you don’t stop to reassess your situation and to rejuvenate. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) – If you are unhappy, consider the circumstances that led to your current situation. Perhaps your expectations are unrealistic. Think things over to avoid making the same mistake twice. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) – The key to security is the ability to manage your finances effectively. Share your dreams, and you are likely to come across a kindred spirit who has similar goals and much to contribute. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) – You will be inspired to take on a new project. Go ahead and take the plunge. Your creativity and imagination will lead to a very successful outcome. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – You need to deal with matters on your own. Otherwise, you will expend a lot of needless energy trying to get others to agree to your way of thinking. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) – There is a group or organization that is looking for someone with your credentials. Participate, meet new people and spend time with those who share your interests.

SADD on campus. Every high school and college should have a chapter of SADD. Learning about the destruction caused by drinking and driving is of great importance. Dr. Wallace: My parents are outrageously strict. I’m 15 and treated like I’m a young child and watched like a hawk. Prisoners have more freedom than I do. Simply put, I am not permitted to do anything unless I’m with my parents. Their philosophy is that parents can’t be too strict in this screwedup world we live in today. Please tell them that they are overreacting and causing their daughter to despise them. – Nameless, Cumberland, Md.

8SUDOKU

Nameless: Children should not be kept in the sort of protective “prison” you describe. Part of good parenting is knowing when to let go and begin trusting a child with gradually increasing freedom and responsibility. All children eventually grow up. Those who have never been allowed to make their own choices will surely exercise poor judgment when freedom arrives all at once. You and your parents need to talk. If you’re on the brink of despising them, that’s a signal they need to review the restrictive rules they’ve laid down for you. Dr. Wallace: You said that sidestream smoke (smoke coming from the tip of a lit cigarette) is more dangerous

to a person’s health than smoke exhaled by a smoker. I’m writing a paper on the health hazards of smoking and would like to know why sidestream smoke is worse than exhaled smoke. – Hannah, Kansas City, Mo. Hannah: The information came from the Canadian Lung Association, which reported that there is twice as much tar and nicotine in sidestream smoke as in exhaled smoke. This is because a percentage of tar and nicotine stays in the body of the smoker after exhaling. I’d enjoy reading a copy of your paper after you receive your A from your teacher.

8CROSSWORD

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Success requires two good plays Wendell Johnson was a psychologist, an actor and a proponent of General Semantics. He said, “Always and never are two words you should always remember never to use.” In bridge, you can rarely use the words always and never. But “two” is relevant to this deal. What is the outcome in three no-trump after West leads his fourth-highest heart? If you and your partner play regularly together, discuss using minor-suit transfers, although they come up rarely. Here, North could show game-going values, long diamonds and a singleton (or void) in hearts. These transfers are described on my website. South starts with seven top tricks: two spades, two diamonds and three clubs. He will work on diamonds to get (at least) two more winners. Yes, he could lose four hearts and one diamond first – but only if West makes two good plays. After East wins the first trick with his heart ace, he returns the nine, the higher of two remaining cards. This should tell West that South started with four hearts (or five, but then the contract would be unbeatable). When trying to establish a suit in which an opponent will get one trick, give it to him as quickly as possible. So, West must duck the second trick. South will then cash his diamond ace. West needs to realize that East has to win a trick for another heart lead through South, and if that entry card is the diamond jack, West must unblock his queen. If he does not, declarer lets West win the second diamond with his queen and the contract makes with at least one overtrick. (If South has the diamond jack, West’s play is irrelevant.) When West throws away his diamond queen, the contract must fail.
