Location stalls sober house plan Proposed site was on wrong side of street, outside boundaries for county buildings By ANDREA AZZO SYCAMORE – DeKalb County Board members say they were against having a sober house because it didn’t fit with the county’s 100-year plan. Turns out, it was on the wrong side of the intersection of Exchange and Walnut streets in Sycamore.

A proposal to buy the 2,388-square-foot house at 303 Exchange St. to house men being treated through DeKalb County’s DUI and drug court in Sycamore has officially been turned down. County board members say they didn’t want to go against the county’s 100-year plan, which sets boundaries for where the county has promised to house its government buildings.

“Technically, a promise is a promise, and I wouldn’t violate [residents’] trust,” said Stephen Reid, a Democrat from District 5. In its 100-year plan, which was approved in 2001, the county said it would contain county property to the area bordered by North Walnut Street to the east, North Locust Street to the west, East Sycamore Street to the north

and East State Street to the south. The Exchange Street house is at the northeast corner of the intersection with Walnut, putting it just on the wrong side of the boundary. Judge Robbin Stuckert, who oversees the drug court program, was not available for comment. Board members have said it is up to drug court officials to come up with a

new proposed location. “We do need a sober house,” said Jeff Whelan, a Republican from District 10. “I am for it, but the location was changed because it wouldn’t have been advantageous what they needed it for.” Anthony Cvek, a Republican from District 4, is the board member closest to the topic. The proposed sober


house location along Exchange Street would have been three doors down from his house, he said. Cvek echoed other board members’ thoughts that the location would have gone against the county’s 100-year plan. “I wasn’t against it being close to my house,” he said.

Nikki Burton plays with her son, Liam Burton, 18 months, while he’s being held by his father, Adam Burton, on Thursday afternoon after the three were reunited in Sycamore. Nikki and Adam Burton are both senior airmen in the Air Force and were deployed for 167 days to Southeast Asia. Liam spent about three months living with Adam’s mother, Kim Mattei, at her home in Sycamore and two months with Nikki’s mother, Melissa Miller, in Kalamazoo, Mich.

Parents reunite with toddler in Sycamore after 6-month deployment By KATIE DAHLSTROM

“I feel really sad they couldn’t be with him. He’s such a joy to be around.” SYCAMORE – Liam Burton waited 167 days to give his mom and dad their first kisses. On Thursday, 18-month-old Liam planted a kiss on his mom, Nikki Burton, and dad, Adam Burton, for the first time when they returned to Sycamore after a nearly six-month deployment with the U.S. Air Force. “He always kisses the phone, but that was the first one when we actually touched,” Nikki said. “It was unreal.” Senior Airman Adam Burton, 24, and Senior Airman Nikki Burton, 23, were deployed to southwest Asia together with the 380th Expeditionary Aircraft Maintenance Squadron late last year when their son, Liam, was a little more than a year old. In the time they were gone, Liam stayed with Adam’s mom, Kim Mattei, in Sycamore and later Nikki’s mom, Melissa Miller, in Kalamazoo, Mich. He is their first grandchild.

Liam Burton, 18 months, looks down High Street in Sycamore waiting for the arrival of his parents, Nikki and Adam Burton, both senior airmen in the Air Force, to return from their 167-day deployment in Southeast Asia. Liam had just turned 1 year old when the couple deployed from Travis Air Force Base in California. “I feel really sad they couldn’t be with him,” Miller said. “He’s such a joy to be around.” Adam and Nikki met while stationed together at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, Calif., out-

side San Francisco, and got married about two years ago before having Liam. When they learned of their impending deployment, the military gave them the option to be deployed one after the other

or at once. They chose the latter because it seemed better for Liam and because they knew they would have the support of their families. Facing deployment together also seemed like the best option, they said. Adam’s brother, Jake Burton, traveled to the couple’s home in California last October to take Liam before the couple shipped out. He recalled a beautiful California day marked with silence through the moment when it came time to say goodbye at the airport. “Taking a child from the mother is the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” Jake Burton said.

WASHINGTON – An Internet connection and a bunch of stolen identities are all it takes for crooks to collect billions of dollars in bogus federal tax refunds. And the scam is proving too pervasive to stop. A government report released in November said the IRS issued nearly $4 billion in fraudulent tax refunds over the previous year to thieves who were using other people’s personal information. Attorney General Eric Holder said this week that the “scale, scope and execution Eric Holder of these fraud schemes” has grown substantially and the Justice Department in the past year has charged 880 people. Who’s involved? In a video message released ahead of the April 15 tax filing deadline, Holder said the scams “are carried out by a variety of actors, from greedy tax return preparers to identity brokers who profit from the sale of personal information to gangs and drug rings looking for easy access to cash.” Even Holder isn’t immune. Two men pleaded guilty in Georgia last year to trying to get a tax refund by using his name, Social Security number and date of birth on tax forms. The IRS says it opened nearly 1,500 criminal investigations related to identity theft in fiscal year 2013, a 66 percent increase over the previous year, and has strengthened filters that help detect where the scams are coming from. It says it stops far more fraudulent refunds than it pays out and is making a dent in the problem. Still, the schemes have grown more sophisticated, attracting criminals with violent backgrounds who see an easy and safe vehicle for theft, according to law enforcement officials who fear that not enough controls are in place. “I’ve been on calls with

THE FINE LINE Jason Akst ley Project, which links students and encourages communication. Now, Flat Stanleys (and Flat Stephanies) travel all over the world, making new friends and having great adventures with human hosts. Our son’s second-grade class sent two Flat Stanleys per student to friends and relatives. They came back, and now the paper dolls are teaching children. One of our son’s Flat Stanleys visited my sister in Amarillo, Texas. Flat Stanley came back and taught about: • Route 66, the enormously significant “mother road” between Chicago and Los Angeles; • Palo Duro Canyon State Park, a gorgeous geographic feature that’s the second largest canyon in North America; • Cadillac Ranch, the famous modern art piece famed in song and movie scene; • The American Quarter Horse Museum, where famous race horses are celebrated and documented. All that knowledge courtesy of a paper doll and a kindly aunt. On Wednesday night, I was thinking about this at the Sycamore Public Library. Our son was in a nearby room

Flat Stanley is simple, fun teaching tool Classroom learning is crucial. As a teacher, I’m not aware of any really effective substitute or replacement for it. But as our son’s education progresses (he’s in second grade), I have begun to realize that learning should occur in as many ways and places as possible, and that whenever possible, it should be fun. Flat Stanley helped me realize this. Flat Stanley is a little paper boy who travels all over with the help of human friends and relatives, having adventures and teaching kids. Flat Stanley is thought to have come from the mind of a dad, Jeff Brown. One night, one of Brown’s two kids was stalling about going to bed (a phenomenon with which I’m oh-so-familiar). The child was nervous that the large bulletin board his dad had installed above his bed would fall on him. Brown assured the child he would be fine, but joked that if it did fall, the boy would probably wake up in the morning a little flat. The children thought that was hilarious. They began making up stories about places they’d go and things they’d do if they were flat. A friend who worked in publishing heard about the flat stories. He suggested that Brown write a book about them, and that’s how the Flat Stanley series originated. Later, Dale Hubert, a Canadian schoolteacher, created the Flat Stan-

reading aloud … to a dog. Reading to dogs is part of the library’s “Books and Barks” program. Books and Barks fosters a love of reading in children (in second through fifth grades) because they get to read to furry friends. According to the library’s website, the program provides kids “an opportunity to practice their reading skills by reading aloud to a dog. The goal of Books and Barks is to create a positive, nonthreatening, and fun environment for independent reading.” That’s the whole program, and like many great ideas, the genius is its simplicity. Anyway, our son is one of my best sources for column ideas. He often suggests that I write about how people need to take better care of the environment. But Wednesday, I told him I was thinking about writing about Flat Stanley. He said, “You mean how it’s not just about a flat kid, but that it’s fun for learning?”

Colbert to replace Letterman on late show By DAVID BAUDER dailychronicle @dailychronicle

The Associated Press NEW YORK – CBS moved swiftly Thursday to replace the retiring David Letterman with Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert, who will take over the “Late Show” next year and do battle with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel for late-night television supremacy. Colbert, 49, has been hosting “The Colbert Report” at 10:30 p.m. since 2005, in character as a fictional conservative talk-show host. The character will retire with “The Colbert Report.” “Simply being a guest on David Letterman’s show has been a highlight of my career,” Colbert said. “I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave’s lead.” Letterman, who turns 67 on Saturday, announced on his show last week that he would retire sometime in 2015, although he hasn’t set a date. CBS said Thursday that creative elements of Colbert’s new show, including where it will be based, will be announced later. Mayors of New York and Los Angeles have already publicly urged the new “Late Show” host to choose their city. New York would appear to have the clear edge, since Colbert is already based in New York and CBS owns the Ed Sullivan Theater, where the “Late Show” has been taped since Letterman took over in 1993. Letterman offered his endorsement Thursday. “Stephen has always been a real friend to me,” he said. “I’m very excited for him, and I’m flattered that CBS chose him. I also happen to know they wanted another guy with glasses.”

TV personality Stephen Colbert at the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards Governors Ball Sept. 23, 2012, in Los Angeles. CBS announced Thursday that Colbert, the host of “The Colbert Report,” will succeed David Letterman as the host of “The Late Show.” It’s a rapidly changing period for that time slot. Fallon took over for Jay Leno on NBC’s “Tonight” show in February, and has dominated the ratings since his arrival, with Letterman and Kimmel running neck-and-neck for second. Chelsea Handler has also said she is about to end her talk show on E! Entertainment Television. CBS chose not to break the mold: CBS, ABC and NBC will all compete at 10:35 p.m. with shows hosted by white males. CBS, which has an older audience and generally seeks personalities with the widest appeal possible, is tak-

ing a chance with a personality whose show has a much more specific appeal. But, like Fallon and Kimmel, Colbert is popular with young men and active on the Internet and social media. “Our discussions really centered on finding the most talented, the most creative [choice], the person who was going to conduct the most interesting interviews and be the most interesting person himself, and that’s what led us to Stephen,” said Nina Tassler, CBS entertainment chairman. She said CBS considered several candidates, but did not name them.

Artificial cooling tricky topic for climate panel By KARL RITTER The Associated Press BERLIN – It’s Plan B in the fight against climate change: cooling the planet by sucking heat-trapping CO2 from the air or reflecting sunlight back into space. Called geoengineering, it’s considered mad science by opponents. Supporters say it would be foolish to ignore it, since plan A – slashing carbon emissions from fossil fuels – is moving so slowly. The U.N.’s expert panel on climate change is under pressure from both sides this week as it considers whether geoengineering should be part of the tool-kit that governments use to keep global warming in check. Russia, in particular, has been pushing the panel to place more emphasis on such techniques in a key document for policymakers being finalized in Berlin this week. Drafts leaked before the conference

only mentioned one of the options, removing CO2 from the air and storing it underground. Russia, a major oil and gas producer, said the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change should also mention solar radiation management, which could include everything from covering open surfaces with reflective materials or placing sun-mirrors in orbit around the Earth. “It is expedient to give a short description of the approach and mention the major ‘pro and contra’,” Russia said in comments submitted to the IPCC and seen by The Associated Press. But even advocates of studying geoengineering express doubts. “Really at the present moment there is a high level of uncertainty surrounding all of these options,” said Steve Rayner, co-director of Oxford University’s geoengineering program. Still, he said it’s worth continuing to research geoengineering “to get a better sense of wheth-

er there’s any merit in pursuing these technologies further.” After discussions among governments and scientists, a mention of geoengineering was added last year to the first of four summaries of the IPCC’s authoritative assessment on climate change. They are now working on the third one, which deals specifically with fighting climate change. The document is important because it will be used as scientific guidance for governments as they negotiate a new global climate pact, set to be adopted in 2015. Some environmental activists watching the talks in Berlin want the IPCC to scratch references to geoengineering altogether. They worry that such technologies would be ineffective, possibly harmful and delay efforts to shift the world’s energy system from oil and coal to low-carbon energy sources like wind and solar power.

DSW opening draws curious shoppers By ANDREA AZZO DeKALB – Sycamore resident Jeanna Valentin needed to buy sandals Thursday before she got a pedicure and saw comedian Gabriel Iglesias at Northern Illinois University’s Convocation Center. Valentin noticed the grand opening of DSW at 2347 Sycamore Road in DeKalb and decided to check out DeKalb’s newest shoe retailer. “You can get really nice shoes here at a better price,” Valentin said. DSW managers are hoping the 12,000-square-foot DeKalb location is here to stay. The store currently has 30 employees, three of them fulltime, said Lester Giedrojc, DSW district manager. The store is in the Oakland Place Shopping Center, the same plaza that houses

DSW, located at 2347 Sycamore Road in DeKalb, opened Thursday morning. Michael’s and T.J. Maxx. Five Below, a store known for selling items for $5 or less, plans to open in the space next door to DSW on April 25. The two retailers will occupy

the space formerly used by an Old Navy store. Store manager Chris Papanek, who has been with the company for five and a half years, said DSW wants cus-

tomers to think of his store when shopping for shoes and accessories. When they choose to shop at DSW, they’ll find friendly employees who love what they do, he said. “They love shoes and fashion,” Papanek said. “They have that passion.” Curiosity led DeKalb resident Daniel Olson to walk into the store and check out the belt selection. Olson, who has already shopped at DSW’s Geneva location, said DeKalb needed a shoe store in addition to those already in town. Although the DeKalb location is smaller compared to the rest of DSW’s locations – the company’s stores are typically 22,000 square feet – Olson said the selection is still impressive. “There’s a lot to choose from,” he said, “and the prices are good. It’s a good value for the money.”

DeKalb woman faces DeKalb parks adjusts job responsibilities What’s next home invasion charge By ANDREA AZZO

DeKALB – The DeKalb Park District Board on Thursday decided they are looking for more than a new executive director to add to their employee roster. They unanimously decided to create a superintendent of recreation and facilities position, adding an employee who will oversee the recreation, athletic and aquatic programs and special events. With a salary of $65,000 to $70,000 a year, the employee will supervise the district’s recreation centers, Hopkins Pool and marketing efforts. Interim Director Ray Ochromowicz said the district will start advertising for the position with the expectation someone would be hired by the new executive director. The Park Board will start interviewing four executive director candidates this month and

The DeKalb Park District will advertise for the superintendent of recreation and facilities position, which will be filled when the new executive director starts later this year.

expects to have a new director in place by July. “This gives ample time to get the word out and collect those applications so that by the time your next director is hired and acclimated in his or her role, these applications would be on the desk waiting for them,” Ochromowicz said. The superintendent of recreation will report to the executive director and be on the same level as Lisa Wells Small and Brad Garrison, whose job titles were changed Thursday from assistant director to superintendent of finance and superintendent of parks and development, respectively.

DeKALB – Shakita Scott’s wallet was stolen at a party Sunday night, and after a fight broke out hours later at the DeKalb apartment where she thought she would find it, Scott now faces criminal charges, authorities said. Scott, 18, of the 700 block of North Annie Glidden Road in DeKalb, was charged with home invasion and criminal damage to property. She posted $5,000 bail Tuesday in order to be released from jail while her case is pending. DeKalb police said about eight people went with Scott just after midnight Monday to a DeKalb apartment to find and intimidate the people Scott suspected of taking her wallet, court records show. A

fight ensued, and one of the people with Scott hit a man with a blunt object, causing his forehead to swell, court records show. A 50-inch TV and Xbox video game system were damaged during the fight, with damages exceeding $300, court records show. Police are still investigating the incident, said DeKalb police detective Lt. Bob Redel. So far, police have arrested Scott and her boyfriend, Dorian McGee, 21, of DeKalb. McGee remained in jail Thursday, unable to post 10 percent of his $50,000 bond. If convicted of the more serious charge she faces, home invasion, Scott could face between six and 30 years in prison. She is next due in court April 24.

which will shift more to marketing than pool operations. Small, Garrison and deOliveira declined to comment on the changes. Park Board President Phil Young said he didn’t think addressing the organization of the park district in the middle of the nearly year-long executive director search would hinder the process. He said the new structure will give the director a clean slate to work with rather than spending the first months making organizational changes. “I don’t see how this delayed the search at all,” Young said. “If anything, it will speed up the integration of the new director.”

Small’s and Garrison’s salaries were not changed. The new superintendent of recreation position would fit into the budget this year because the district planned to add a new position to the recreation department and is saving money by not having an executive director in place, Ochromowicz said. The board also approved other job title changes, altered job descriptions and adjusted salary ranges for some jobs, although no employee salaries were changed. The most noted organizational change was to Hopkins Park Community Center Director and Marketing Director Scott deOliveira’s duties,

Amendment protecting Illinois voters to go on ballot

Illinois House speaker cleared in Metra probe By JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – An investigation into whether Illinois’ powerful House speaker improperly influenced hiring at Chicago’s scandal-tarnished Metra commuter rail agency found no legal violations, according to the Democratic lawmaker’s office. A letter from House Speaker Michael Madigan’s ethics officer, Heather Wier Vaught, released Wednesday, said Legislative Inspector General Tom Homer has closed his investigation into improper involvement by Madigan and Democratic Reps. Luis Arroyo of Chicago and Elizabeth Hernandez of Cicero. Madigan requested the investigation last June after


ousted Metra CEO Alex Clifford said he was pushed out of the job after he resisted interference from politicians demanding patronage jobs. Clifford, a former California transit executive, was hired in February 2011 with the mandate to clean up Metra after its Metra’s former executive director was accused of defrauding the agency out of about $475,000. Homer on Thursday declined to confirm that his investigation was closed or that Madigan had been cleared, citing confidentiality laws. But in a statement released to reporters, he stressed that he can consider only whether existing laws and ethics rules were broken. “A decision to close an investigation based on insuffi-

cient evidence does not constitute a Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval or a best practices award,” said Homer, a former state lawmaker and appellate court justice. “Moreover, closure does not bar the inspector general from resuming the investigation if circumstances warrant.” Homer said he would recommend that the Legislature reform laws surrounding patronage hiring, conflicts of interest and transparency. He has previously complained that legislative ethics laws are a “toothless tiger.” Spokesman Steve Brown said Madigan would review any suggestions as he has other recommendations from Homer, but generally believes the state’s ethics act is sound.

proposal recognizes “the fundamental, quintessentially American concept of the right to vote.” “This will send a message loud and clear that it doesn’t matter what your surname is, if you have earned the right to vote you will not be impeded,” Murphy said. Nine states have made

it harder to vote since the beginning of 2013 – mostly dealing with requiring identification. Some have implemented or are considering proof of citizenship. Democrats say such measures disenfranchise lower-income people – often Democrats – who don’t have IDs or money to acquire documents.

Also named in the indictment are cartel leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who was captured in February, and Zambada’s father, Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada-Garcia. He is considered to be a close ally of Guzman’s in running the cartel and is not in custody.

Republican candidate for Congress introduced a proposal to increase the minimum wage for some workers, a plan his Democratic opponent U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin says doesn’t go far enough. State Sen. Jim Oberweis, a Republican from Sugar Grove, introduced the measure on Wednesday to gradually raise the minimum wage for workers who are 26 and older. His plan would raise the minimum wage to $9 per hour next year, $9.50 in 2016, and $10 in 2017. The current minimum wage in Illinois is $8.25 per hour.

Dorothy’s joy was caring for and helping people wherever she found them, from nursery school at Westlawn Methodist Church in Detroit every Sunday during the 1940s to volunteering with her husband at the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan and Bok Tower Gardens in Florida, and performing numerous roles in the Black Hills Passion Play from 1983 through 2007.

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois voters will consider a constitutional amendment this fall aimed at scuttling attempts at voter suppression after Senate action Thursday. The Senate voted 52-0 to approve the idea brought forth by House Speaker Michael Madigan, a powerful Democrat concerned about other states’ actions to add requirements for voting or limit when it’s done. The House endorsed the measure 107-5 on Tuesday after the Republican leader, Jim Durkin of Western Springs, signed on with Madigan as a co-sponsor. The proposed amendment prevents people from being denied the right to register to vote or cast a ballot based on race, color, ethnicity, status as a member of a language minority, sex, sexual orientation, or income. Sen. Matt Murphy, a Palatine Republican, said the

Stabbing suspect ‘deer in headlights’ Obama commemorates signing The Associated Press PITTSBURGH – The 16-year-old boy accused of stabbing 22 people at his high school was dazed “like a deer in the headlights” hours later and doesn’t fully grasp what he did, his attorney said Thursday as he sketched out the beginnings of a possible mental health defense. Deepening the mystery of what set off the violence, attorney Patrick Thomassey said Alex Hribal had no history of mental illness or troublemaking, didn’t abuse drugs and was no outcast at school, where the lawyer de-

day’s rampage at Franklin Regional High, about 15 miles from Pittsburgh. Authorities said Hribal armed himself with two kitchen knives and stabbed 21 students and a security guard before an assistant principal tackled him. The slender, dark-haired boy who looks younger than his years was jailed without bail on four counts of attempted homicide and 21 counts of aggravated assault. Authorities are prosecuting him as an adult, but Thomassey said he will try to have the case moved to juvenile court. He said he plans to get his client examined by a psychiatrist before a preliminary hearing on April 30.

Sebelius resigning from top HHS post By JULIE PACE The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Embattled Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning as the White House seeks to move past the election-year political damage inflicted by the rocky rollout of President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. Sebelius’ resignation comes just over a week after sign-ups closed for the first year of insurance coverage under the so-called Obamacare law. The opening weeks of the enrollment period were marred by widespread website woes, though the administration rebounded strongly by enrolling 7.1 million people by the March 31 deadline, exceeding initial expectations. Enrollment has since risen to 7.5 million as people were given extra time to complete applications. Even with the late surge in sign-ups, the law remains unpopular with many Americans and Republicans have made it a centerpiece of their efforts to retake the Senate in the fall. Sebelius’ resignation could also set the stage for a contentious confirmation hearing to replace her. In a sign that

of Civil Rights Act 50 years ago By JOSH LEDERMAN The Associated Press AUSTIN, Texas – A half-century after the passage of sweeping civil rights legislation, President Barack Obama declared that he had “lived out the promise” envisioned by Lyndon B. Johnson, the president who championed the push for greater racial equality. Marking the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, which Johnson signed into law, Obama lauded his Democratic predecessor’s ability to grasp like few others the power of government to bring about change and swing open the doors of opportunity for millions of Americans. “They swung open for you and they swung open for me,” he said. “That’s why I’m standing here today.” Obama spoke at the end of a three-day summit commemorating the landmark law that ended racial discrimination in public places. The anniversary has spurred a renaissance of sorts for

licly supportive of Sebelius throughout the rough rollout, deflecting Republican calls for her resignation. But she was conspicuously not standing by his side last week when he heralded the sign-up surge during an event in the White House Rose Garden. The official said the 65-yearold Sebelius approached Obama last month about stepping down, telling him that the sign-up deadline was a good opportunity for a transition and suggesting he would be better served by someone who was less of a political target.


Johnson’s domestic agenda, which included the creation of Medicare, Medicaid and the Voting Rights Act. And against the backdrop of Obama’s own troubled relationship with Congress, there have also been fresh bouts of nostalgia for Johnson’s mastery of congressional deal-making. “No one knew politics

PERTH, Australia – Australia’s prime minister said Friday authorities are confident that a series of underwater signals detected in a remote patch of the Indian Ocean are coming from the missing Malaysia Airlines plane. Tony Abbott told reporters in Shanghai, China, that search crews had significantly narrowed down the area they were hunting for the source of the sounds, first detected on April 5. “It’s been very much narrowed down because we’ve now had a series of detections, some for quite a long period of time,” Abbott said. “Nevertheless, we’re getting to the stage where the signal from what we are very confident is the black box is starting to fade. We are hoping to get as much informa-

tion as we can before the signal finally expires.” The plane’s black boxes, or flight data and cockpit voice recorders, could help solve the mystery of why Flight 370 veered so far off course when it vanished on March 8 on a trip from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing.

Putin: Ukraine debt threatens gas supplies MOSCOW – Vladimir Putin warned Europe on Thursday that it may face a shutdown of Russian natural gas supplies if it fails to help Ukraine settle its enormous Russian gas bill – a debt that far exceeds a bailout package offered by the International Monetary Fund. The Russian president’s letter to 18 mostly Eastern European leaders, released Thursday by the Kremlin, aimed to divide the 28-nation European Union

and siphon off to Russia the billions that the international community plans to lend to Ukraine. It was all part of Russia’s efforts to retain control over its struggling neighbor, which is teetering on the verge of financial ruin and facing a pro-Russian separatist mutiny in the east. Putin’s message is clear: The EU has tried to lure Ukraine from Russia’s orbit and into its fold, so it should now foot Ukraine’s gas bill – or face the country’s economic collapse and a disruption of its own gas supplies. The tough warning raises the ante ahead of international talks on settling the Ukrainian crisis that for the first time will bring together the United States, the European Union, Russia and Ukraine.

scribed him as a B or B-plus student. “In a case like this, it’s pretty obvious to me that there must be something inside this young man that nobody knew about,” Thomassey told The Associated Press. The local prosecutor, meanwhile, said Hribal remained an enigma. “We have very little information about him,” Westmoreland County District Attorney John Peck said, “except for the fact that he was a student, his age, and how he was as a student.” Authorities seized the family’s computer as they searched for clues to Wednes-

In her first nights with Liam, Mattei said she could tell he was stressed and confused by the change in his environment. He would wake up in the middle of the night screaming and cry when the family would go to his crib. Eventually his stress faded. Since last October, Liam’s started talking, sprouted more teeth and learned how to take a selfie, among other things. He has mannerisms like his parents’ and loves riding in his toy car. “He came to us as a baby, and he’s now a toddler,” Mattei said. Liam’s parents talked to him and the rest of their family through video phone calls about once a week. Most of the time the family followed Liam around with a phone so his parents could watch him play. Seeing him was hard at first, but the harder thing was not being able to be there at all, the couple said. “It’s hard to think of all the little things, his feet scampering around, him yelling,” Adam Burton said. “You don’t want to miss that kind of

The Exchange Street location also was not a good fit because participants living there would have likely needed a method of transportation to get there since many of them don’t have cars themselves, said Anita Turner, a District 4 Democrat. The property is about three-tenths of a mile from the county courthouse on State Street. Turner said board members will wait and see what other opportunities arise. “If another property comes up, we’ll consider it,” she said. “Hopefully it goes to the right channels.” Sycamore city manager Brian Gregory said if the sober house is located within the city limits, they’d have to go through many steps to get the sober house on Sycamore city property. In the city of Sycamore’s jurisdiction a sober house would have to be approved on a special use, case-by-case basis and must be located in multi-family home zones in Sycamore. But even then, Gregory said someone has to request a special use permit and make

After they were gone for nearly a third of his life, everyone was worried Liam wouldn’t remember his parents. But on Thursday as they arrived in their fatigues, those worries faded and were replaced by hugs, kisses and laughter. “You have that fear that he’s not going to know them,” Mattei said. “But he remembers his mommy and daddy.”

• REFUNDS Continued from page A1 Alabama, Chicago, some other field divisions, where they’re now experiencing people who were from Florida and now moving to other states to conduct this same type of fraud,” said FBI Supervisory Special Agent Jay Bernardo, who works fraud cases in south Florida. “Based on the parameters that are in place now,” he added, “it’s very difficult to stop.” What can taxpayers do? The most important step: Protect their Social Security numbers.

Thieves steal Social Security numbers in any number of ways, including from publicly available sources or workplaces. Victims include school children, prisoners, Medicaid beneficiaries and the deceased. Criminals use the information to file false returns and then pocket the refund checks, in many cases before the legitimate taxpayers have had a chance to submit their own returns. It’s a crime made easier by electronic tax filing, which lets crooks mass-produce fraudulent returns. “Part of what’s happening is people are reverse engineering,” IRS Commissioner

John Koskinen told a House subcommittee this week. “You know, you file a thousand fraudulent returns and then you see which ones go through. ... They can adjust faster than we can adjust.” In a statement Thursday, the IRS said that it has started more than 200 investigations this filing season into identity theft and refund fraud schemes and that enforcement efforts are taking place nationwide. The agency said investigators are especially focused on the misuse of specialized identification numbers assigned to firms that electronically file tax returns.

Frank O’Barski, D-DeKalb, said the county’s planning and zoning committee has not yet discussed another location, but whatever is proposed in the future, it should make community members feel secure and protected. “Everybody agrees it’s a great program,” O’Barski said. “We support it, but there are multiple considerations to relocate.”

Confessions of an email addict

When dealing with the divided government in Washington, D.C., bipartisanship is crucial toward getting anything accomplished. U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a 16th District Republican who represents most of DeKalb County, recognized that truth in his effort to improve career and technical education for young people and job seekers. Kinzinger partnered with two Democrats, U.S. Reps. Joe Kennedy III of Massachusetts and Jared Polis of Colorado, and fellow Illinois Republican Rodney Davis to introduce the Perkins Modernization For the record Act of 2014 on Tuesday. The Perkins bill, if With luck, the skills-trainenacted, has the potential to boost the value of career ing bill will become law and technical education for and help people fulfill their career and employment people who live in various regions of the country. goals. By using workforce data to ensure that vocational curriculums are aligned with the needs of local employers, it would increase the likelihood that students and job seekers would be hired in the fields for which they trained. “This bipartisan bill will help ensure that skills being taught are actually in demand in the private sector,” Kinzinger said. That strategy makes sense to us. It should make sense to displaced workers who want to train for new careers. It should make sense to young people who want to pursue career and technical education for entry positions in the local economy – the “stayers” who do not intend to earn a bachelor’s degree and move away from the Sauk Valley. And it should make sense for students who intend to pursue college-level career and technical education programs, so they will have the best opportunities to find jobs upon graduation. Rep. Kennedy said the proposal would “arm future generations with the skills they need to compete.” Rep. Polis said it would help young people “succeed in an increasingly global economy.” And Rep. Davis pointed to jobs that go unfilled in Illinois, with a jobless rate just below 9 percent, because “our workforce has not caught up with [21st-century] technical skills.” With two Republicans and two Democrats sponsoring it, the Perkins Modernization Act of 2014 should draw bipartisan support across the Republican-controlled House. That bipartisanship must continue in the Democratic-controlled Senate and White House. With luck, the skills-training bill will become law and help people fulfill their career and employment goals. A further consequence might just be a lower unemployment rate and an improved economy. All because two Republicans and two Democrats decided to give bipartisanship a chance. As we said, it makes sense to us.


Seeing life elsewhere, one reader at a time E-cigarettes could be A few years ago, a columnist who works for one of the largest newspapers in the country told me over breakfast that he never checks reader response to his work. “Too many personal attacks,” he said. “They’re mean.” I suggested that couldn’t possibly be true of every reader who weighs in. Surely, I said, we can learn from how people respond to our work. “I’m not going to let them in my head,” he said, shaking his head. “I don’t need to know what’s on their minds.” I’m no stranger to the angst of journalists wringing their hands over what the Internet has wrought. I’ve been one of them, particularly when it comes to anonymous comments on news websites. Still, I think journalists should pay attention to how readers respond to their work. Why are we still in this business, if not to connect? As a columnist, I can’t respond to every email and comment, and I happily skip past the trolls, but I do try to get a feel for what readers are thinking. We can’t have a conversation, even a virtual one, if I’m doing all the talking. Having said that, I admit that it took me too long to get here, Web-wise. Over the past six years, I went from vowing never to join Facebook to using it as a primary way to interact with readers, one link and discussion at a time. I started small, but after it became clear that a columnist can’t expect privacy on Facebook, I made all my posts public and opened my page to subscribers. I have no idea why more than 126,000

a risk worth taking If electronic cigarettes, known as e-cigarettes, live up to their potential, millions of nicotine addicts in the United States will use them. To some public health advocates, that sounds terrible. People should kick nicotine rather than cultivate their dependence with a barely regulated product that seems designed to addict children. The concentrated, nicotine-laced liquid that these devices vaporize is also toxic when inappropriately consumed. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention just reported that, with the rise in the use of e-cigarettes over the past several years, the number of calls to poison control centers stemming from misuse of e-cigarette liquid also has increased, from about one a month in 2010 to 215 a month now. “These poisonings will continue,” CDC Director Tom Frieden ominously warned. But, in the fight against the profound misery and death that conventional cigarette smoking causes, even an imperfect tool is worth welcoming if it can reduce smoking. The CDC news does not disqualify e-cigarettes from helping – as long as the government regulates them. Good thing, then, that several years ago Congress gave the Food and Drug Administration wide latitude to regulate the production and sale of products made of or derived from tobacco. Once the agency begins regulating – and it soon will, it said – it can make e-cigarettes less attractive to teenagers, require childproof containers on e-cigarette liquid, demand appropriate warning labels on packaging and figure out what is in e-cigarette vapor. More serious regulation of combustible cigarettes – from the FDA and from the states – is also necessary to maximize the potential public health benefits and minimize the drawbacks. Washington Post

Prosecutor mocks Pistorius’ version of events By CHRISTOPHER TORCHIA and GERALD IMRAY The Associated Press PRETORIA, South Africa – The chief prosecutor laughed scornfully at an answer from Oscar Pistorius during the Olympic athlete’s murder trial Thursday, mocking the man who shot his girlfriend. The judge sternly instructed the prosecutor to restrain himself and he apologized – then went right back to trying to pick holes in the testimony of the double-amputee

runner. It was a harsh day of cross-examination for Pistorius, challenged relentlessly about his account of the moments just before he killed Reeva S t e e n k a m p , Oscar as well as cir- Pistorius cumstances related to several firearms charges against him, including the firing of a gun in a crowded restaurant. Prosecutor Gerrie Nel

often sought to goad Pistorius, accusing him of being self-obsessed and hiding the truth about the death of Steenkamp, a 29-year-old model whom he shot through a closed toilet door in his home. Dressed in a dark suit, Pistorius, 27, responded methodically and in a soft monotone, and only occasionally did his voice rise. He did not break down in tears as he has previously this week in the witness box and did not look at Nel, instead facing the red-

robed judge, Thokozile Masipa, on the dais. The prosecutor seized on virtually every opportunity to challenge the star athlete’s credibility, asserting that he had a string of unlikely excuses for why he wasn’t to blame in the gun charges he faces on top of murder. In casting doubt on the Olympian’s honesty, Nel was pushing the prosecution’s argument that Pistorius is also lying that he killed Steenkamp by mistake, thinking she was an intruder, in the pre-dawn hours of

Valentine’s Day last year. Nel briefly erupted in laughter after Pistorius suggested that two witnesses who said they once saw him shoot out of a car sunroof had collaborated and fabricated their accounts. “I apologize for laughing, I won’t do it again,” Nel said after people in the gallery murmured in surprise at his outburst. Masipa sternly cautioned him: “If you possibly think this is entertaining, it’s not. So please restrain yourself.”

In the cross-examination, Nel asserted that Pistorius will not “accept responsibility for anything.” He reacted incredulously to the athlete’s explanation of why a gun he was handling went off under a table in a packed restaurant. The incident, for which he was charged with firing a gun in public without good reason, happened weeks before Steenkamp died. Pistorius said a friend’s pistol, a Glock, went off while he was holding it but insisted that he hadn’t pulled the trigger.

STILL AN EVEN RACE Masters pairing a trip to future

Bach: IOC sending troubleshooter to Rio BELEK, Turkey – The International Olympic Committee is sending a senior troubleshooter to Brazil next week as part of a series of emergency measures to tackle the delays threatening the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro. IOC President Thomas Bach said Thursday that Gilbert Felli, the IOC’s executive director of the Olympic Games, is being dispatched to Rio several months earlier than scheduled to begin dealing with the construction holdups and political paralysis that is putting some sports venues at risk. The IOC also is sending several task forces to Rio, hiring a local project manager to oversee construction and urging Brazil to set up a special high-level decision-making body for the games. “We believe that Rio can and will deliver excellent games if these appropriate actions are being taken now,” Bach said at a news conference after a two-day meeting of the IOC executive board. Bach, however, stopped short of ruling out the Olympics being taken away from Brazil if the delays persist. Asked if he could categorically state that the games would take place in Rio, he said: “What I can say categorically say is we will do everything we can to make these games a success.” – Wire report

turns along the way,” he said. “But, it’s like, one guy has a good day, and the other guy who didn’t have as good of day, next time he comes out and has a good day.” Each one of the quarterbacks is a good fit for NIU’s spread offense, although offensive coordinator Bob Cole said Maddie, who arrived at NIU last fall after transferring from Western Michigan, still is picking things up. Each player shows a good amount of athleticism, and Cole said there isn’t one who stands out in front of the others in terms of athletic ability. “They all can run,” he said. “It’s going to come down to who can be the most accurate making throws and making the best decisions. They’re good athletes, that’s not an issue.”

AUGUSTA, Ga. – If you had the pleasure and terror of being 20 yards ahead of Patrick Reed on the eighth hole Thursday, then you know what a golf ball sounds like when it’s moving at Mach 1. It sounds a bit like an angry snake, but mostly it sounds like you made a smart decision by ducking behind a tree. Reed, a cocky 23-year-old, had pulled his drive into the pine straw on the par-5 and was looking to A) get Patrick Reed the ball on the fairway and B) hit the bejesus out of it. As choices go, A) was smart and B) was, well, there was no way he wasn’t going to try to rip it, never mind the trees. It’s not that he’s so young that he doesn’t know any better. It’s that he does know better and doesn’t care. The ball went where Reed wanted it to go, past us jittery spectators, and it went far, which, given his full windup, seemed to be just as important to him. He would end up birdying the hole. It was a Masters adventure. For the gallery, it was a trip to the future. Reed, who has won three tournaments in the past eight months, was playing with 20-year-old Jordan Spieth, last year’s PGA rookie of the year, and 24-year-old Rory McIlroy, winner of the 2011 U.S. Open and the 2012 PGA Championship. Masters officials put great thought into who plays with whom on the first two days of the tournament, and the message that came with this grouping was simple: This is what’s to come in golf. Enjoy the time travel. Hours earlier at Augusta National, honorary starters Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus had teed off to get the tournament rolling. The Masters does this better than anybody in any sport, this handshake across generations. It bows to yesterday and nods to tomorrow. McIlroy got most of the attention from the crowd Thursday, which is what happens when you’re one of the best golfers in the world, when tennis standout Caroline Wozniacki, your fianceé, is in attendance and when your fianceé has dyed her long hair bright pink. She’s what a human flare gun would look like. In spite of that star power, it says something that fans knew all about Reed and Spieth, who were making their Masters debuts. They’ve made names for themselves, in capital letters.

Injury sidelines Garcia for season By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN CHICAGO – There are losses and then there are losses that punch a baseball team in the gut. Avisail Garcia might not be the face of the White Sox franchise, but the 22-year-old outfielder certainly is the face of the club’s makeover that began when general manager Rick Hahn traded Jake Peavy to get him last July.

Cubs still just a place-holder By GORDON WITTENMYER CHICAGO – The current events and celebrity faces around Wrigley Field have changed. Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo hung out in the owner’s seats Thursday. Ryan Dempter watched from the bleachers. One of the Cubs’ owners, Pete Ricketts, is hanging out with Sarah Palin while he runs for Next governor of Neat St. Louis, braska. And the Cubs’ answer to a 7:15 p.m. faceless, do-nothtoday, CSN+, ing offseason is a AM-720, pants-less, do-nothing mascot. But don’t be fooled. Nothing has changed with this team since last year except a handful of names on the jerseys. Nothing’s different when it comes to the lack of scoring, the blown leads and the generally outmanned look of a place-holder club trying to compete against teams that actually have MVPs, home-run champs and playoff aspirations. If this season-opening 3-6 run against Pennsylvania’s finest wasn’t convincing enough, the Cubs now hit the road for three against the division-favorite Cardinals and two against the $209 million Yankees. “Every road trip is tough. There’s no easy game in the big leagues,” eternal optimist/ manager Rick Renteria said. “Every major-league baseball game is tough to win.” Certainly from where he sits. When the Cubs blew a fourrun lead in the span of seven batters in the seventh inning to lose

Cubs baserunner Nate Schierholtz (back) scores on a wild pitch as Pirates starting pitcher Gerrit Cole makes a late tag during the fourth inning Thursday at Wrigley Field. The Cubs lost, 5-4. 5-4 to the Pirates, it sent them to their eighth consecutive lost series, dating to Sept. 9-11, 2013. They haven’t won a home series since the last one that started in August last year. One of their hottest hitters, Starlin Castro, said that despite the remarkable similarities, this feels nothing like last year – though it might be easier for him to say, given he’s 11 forhis last 21 as he puts a personally rough 2013 behind him. “This is [feels like] closer

against really good teams,” he said. “We’ll see where the team is at; we’ll see what we can do, where we can be better. Against less touted teams, the same level of intensity doesn’t always show, he said. “Sometimes you go to home plate like it’s easy because they don’t have a good team” he said. “But you play against good teams like the Yankees or St. Louis, you have to put 200 percent on yourself to win the game.” Where they’ll any extra is unclear at best. Nine games into the season, Renteria already has shown a tendency to lean hard on four bullpen guys, with Justin Grimm, James Russell, Brian Schlitter and Pedro Strop having worked six games each. Russell, the most heavily used reliever in the league over the past two years, gave up the go-ahead, three-run homer in the seventh on the first pitch he threw to the first batter he faced, Pedro Alvarez. He credited Alvarez with jumping on a bad pitch. “It’s tough,” said the workhorse lefty, “especially as well as [starter Travis Wood] pitched, you never want to mess [that] up. … It’s one of those deals. It happens. We live to see another day.” Renteria: “Everybody in that [clubhouse] kept battling. They fought. We fell short. I’m sure we’ll think about it a little bit, and then put it to bed and get ready for [today].” And hope that by the time they get back from this trip that Wrigley’s so-called Party of the Century won’t already be over.

Barney still trying to figure out his role By GORDON WITTENMYER CHICAGO – Three series into a new season with a new manager and coaching staff, second baseman Darwin Barney doesn’t know much about his tenuous hold on the starting job he’s owned for the past three years. “Obviously, it’s not the same,” said Barney, who was out of the starting lineup Thursday for the fourth time in nine games. Since earning the starting job a week into the 2011 season, Barney hasn’t missed as many starts in a similar stretch that didn’t involve an injury. “But that’s the nature of the

game,” he said. “And last year happened. So I have to continue to show that’s not who I am.” Barney, who hit .276 in 2011 and .254 in 2012 as he developed into a Gold Glover, slumped to .208 last year while trying to adopt changes to his Darwin Barney hitting style that previous management wanted to see. This spring, his approach looked more like the 2011-12 version. He saw more pitches and drew more walks. On Wednesday, he singled and walked twice (one intentional). He walked again Thurs-


Abreu hits 2 more HRs, Sox top Indians The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Rookie Jose Abreu connected for his second multihomer game in three days and the White Sox ended a 14-game losing streak against Cleveland, beating the Indians, 7-3, Thursday night. Abreu hit tape-measure drives in the second and fifth innings and drove in three runs. The Cuban slugger hit the first two homers of his major league career Tuesday in Colorado. Jose Abreu Abreu has four homers and 14 RBIs in 10 games. Alexi Ramirez homered and drove in three runs for the Sox. The Indians had outscored the Sox 102-45 in a streak that dated to June. Sox starter John Danks (1-0) got off to a rocky start, but settled down to allow three runs and six hits in six innings. Indians starter Danny Salazar (0-1) struck out 10 in 3⅔ innings. He also gave up five runs and six hits, including homers by Abreu and Ramirez. Salazar fanned eight through three innings, with the only nonstrikeout out coming when Adam Eaton tried to

Next vs. Cleveland, 7:10 p.m. today, WCIU, AM-670 stretch a single into a double in the third inning. Salazar’s problem was that when the Sox made contact, it was solid contact. Cleveland staked Salazar to a 2-0 lead by scoring twice in the top of the first. Abreu homered to lead off the bottom of the second to cut the lead in half, but Asdrubal Cabrera got the run back with a homer leading off the third. The Sox tied it 3 in the bottom of the third on a leadoff homer by Ramirez and an RBI single by Eaton. The Sox took a 5-3 lead and chased Salazar in the fourth as Ramirez drove home a pair with a double. Abreu later homered to left field off left-handed reliever Josh Outman. Notes: With INF Lonnie Chisenhall beginning a three-day paternity leave Thursday, the Indians called up Justin Sellers from Triple-A Columbus. ...

day after coming off the bench as part of a double switch, giving him a team-high six. Barney is hitting only .200, but he has a .429 on-base percentage. Manager Rick Renteria has been noncommittal about his plans at second base, but he has been clear about finding a place in the field every day for leadoff man Emilio Bonifacio, who can play six positions. He has started in center field and at second for the Cubs, with a late-inning cameo at third Thursday. Barney likely would be a good fit as an everyday second baseman in a contender’s lineup, where he might benefit offensively from bigger bats around him. He’s one of at least

seven players who could be on the trading block by July. Barney has said he wants to stay with the Cubs and win with the Cubs, even if it means proving himself as a big-league starter all over again. Even if it means Bonifacio or Luis Valbuena are in the mix for playing time at second – with top prospect Javy Baez knocking at the door from Triple-A Iowa. “I’m a part of this team, just like anybody else,” Barney said, “and my job is to help this team win when I’m out there in any situation that they need me.”

have opportunities every time you step to the plate.” It was the first opportunity for Garcia, who was acquired from the Tigers, to be a fulltime player. “It’s harder on him, especially him getting his first shot at it for a full year,” manager Robin Ventura said. “Guys just have to keep going. But it’s tough.” How or if Garcia’s swing is affected when he returns to full health next year remains to be seen. Hahn said he expects Garcia to be without restrictions by spring training next year. On the plus side, it’s not his throwing shoulder. “The one thing, even in our disappointment, that’s important not to lose sight of is the fact Avi remains with us (under control) for the next five seasons,” Hahn said. “We would rather have him out there playing on an everyday basis here in Chicago and continuing to show some of the progress he’s shown as recently as the last few days in Colorado. But it’s not the kind of thing he can’t come back from; it’s not the kind of thing that’s going to have lingering effects on his ability or his ceiling. It’s just an unfortunate development that’s pushed him back a year in terms of being an everyday guy in Chicago.”

The Sox were borderline unwatchable last season, but they’ve been worth watching with new, young players such as Abreu, Garcia and Adam Eaton. Abreu should sell tickets, and if you like watching big, fast and strong athletes play baseball, Garcia is one you will buy a ticket to see. “It stinks for White Sox fans who are going to be deprived of the opportunity of seeing this kid on a daily basis this year,” Hahn said. “It’s really just one of the crueler realities of sports and the business we’re in. At the same time, it does provide some opportunity. We get a chance to see if Dayan Viciedo at age 25 can make the improvements that he’s shown signs of making already.” Garcia was showing signs of promise when he hit two home runs Tuesday night. Without him in the lineup, more responsibility apparently falls on Viciedo, who struck out three times Wednesday and misplayed Justin Morneau’s deep fly that went for a double – three batters before Garcia was unsuccessfully trying to secure the third out by diving face-first into the ground. “It’s something you don’t want to wish on anybody, much less on a teammate,” • Daryl Van Schouwen covViciedo said. “You’ve got to take advan- ers the White Sox for the Chitage of those opportunities. cago Sun-Times.

DeKalb shuts out Jefferson

Wimann, Logan top picks for Huskie Bowl

Snead drives in 5 runs in Barbs’ victory By DAILY CHRONICLE STAFF The DeKalb baseball team improved to 5-1 with a 13-0, five-inning win over Rockford Jefferson on Thursday in Rockford. Josh Snead finished 3 for 3 with two doubles, two runs scored and five RBIs for the Barbs. Patrick Aves and Logan Haring each went 2 for 4. Jake Cook earned the win, throwing four innings. “It was nice to see a lot of guys contributing,” DeKalb coach Jake Howells said. “It’s not one or two guys doing all the damage, it’s a lot of guys up and down the lineup and that’s great as a coach.” Spartans win again: Alec Kozak was 4 for 4 with two triples for Sycamore in a 15-5 win over Rockford Guilford. Cooper Vinz went 2 for 4 with a double for the Spartans (5-1), and Ian Kidd and Kye Schlosser were each 2 for 4. Mark Skelley earned the win, giving up a run and striking out two in two innings. “It was a very sloppily played baseball game but we were able to spring some hits together and put up a bunch of runs today,”

By STEVE NITZ DeKALB – After Thursday morning’s football practice at Huskie Stadium, each of the two Huskie Bowl squads split up and practiced on their own for about 15 minutes. The Black Team, led by offensive line coach Joe Tripodi, practiced on the turf of the stadium while Kelvin Sigler’s Cardinal Team went inside the Chessick Center. Northern Illinois coach Rod Carey said tight end Shane Wimann (Black) and Paris Logan (Cardinal) were the top picks in Wednesday’s draft. They each posed with a No. 1 jersey. Both teams will spend a few minutes after each practice on their own leading up to the Huskie Bowl, which will be played at 3 p.m. April 19. Other notes from Thursday’s practice: • Drew Hare is the only quarterback for Tripodi’s team while Matt McIntosh and Anthony Maddie both are with Sigler. Carey said

Thursday that the quarterback battle is even, a position he has held throughout the spring. Hare has had a good spring, and Carey liked what he saw from the sophomore Thursday, but don’t read too much into Hare being the lone QB on his team. “That’s how they drafted it,” Carey said. • Spoke with offensive coordinator Bob Cole after practice, and one player who he said has had a good spring is sophomore tailback Joel Bouagnon, who saw the field as a true freshman. Cole said Bouagnon has had “a heck of a spring.” Other players Cole mentioned as having good springs so far were wideouts Kenny Golladay (transfer from North Dakota who will have to sit out 2013 but will have two seasons of eligibility remaining) and Malik Mitchell (redshirt freshman). • The Huskies will hold a scrimmage at 7:50 p.m. today. Carey said the quarterbacks will continue to get equal reps with the first team, as has been the case in the first two scrimmages.


Haas leads after 1st round Pair of Masters champs 1 back By DOUG FERGUSON The Associated Press AUGUSTA, Ga. – No nerves. No worries. Adam Scott never knew the opening round at Augusta National could be so enjoyable. With his green jacket upstairs in the locker room for Masters champions, Scott made only one bad swing that cost him two shots in a round of 3-under-par 69. It was the lowest opening score by a defending champion in 13 years, and it left Scott one shot behind Bill Haas leader Bill Haas on an otherwise demanding day. “It was really how you hope to come out and play at any major, and especially the Masters,” Scott said. “And there’s no doubt winning the Masters last year had me a little more comfortable on the first tee than I’ve ever been in the past, because I didn’t have the legs shaking and nerves jangling for six or seven holes like usual.” Haas, with a rich family his-

Thursday at Augusta AUGUSTA, Ga. – A brief look at the first round of the Masters on Thursday: Leading: Bill Haas at 4-under-par 68 Trailing: Adam Scott, Louis Oosthuizen and Bubba Watson at 3-under 69 Grinding: The four rounds in the 60s were the fewest for an opening round at Augusta National since there were two rounds in 2007. Lefty’s lament: Phil Mickelson had a pair of 7s on his scorecard – triple bogey on No. 7, double bogey on No. 15 – for the first time in a major since the 1997 PGA Championship at Winged Foot. Family ties: Bill Haas has had a great uncle (Bob Goalby), father (Jay Haas) and two uncles (Jerry Haas, Dillard Pruitt) play in the Masters. Shot of the day: Bae Sang-moon holed a pitch from about 40 yards behind the green for the only eagle on the par-5 15th. tory at Augusta that includes a green jacket for his great uncle Bob Goalby, settled down after an opening bogey with a collection of good birdie putts and an 8-iron to 5 feet for birdie on the 18th for a 68. It was the first time in 18 majors that Haas has had the lead

after any round. That only gets him a crystal vase for the low round of the day at the Masters. Haas knows better than to put too much stock into what happens Thursday. He was leading after the opening round in Houston last week and tied for 37th. “There’s tons of golf left,” he said. Only one first-round leader in the past 30 years has gone on to win the Masters. Former Masters champion Bubba Watson, who slipped that green jacket on Scott last year, played his first bogey-free round in a major since the 2009 U.S. Open and shot a 69. So did Louis Oosthuizen, whom Watson beat in a playoff at Augusta. They were the only players to break 70, the fewest for an opening round at the Masters since 2007. “No one is really going crazy out there in perfect, perfect conditions,” Graeme McDowell said after fighting to salvage a 72. But there was something about the way Scott played that grabbed most of the attention on such a gorgeous spring day in the South. Golf has been waiting for a star to take control all year, even more without Tiger Woods at Augusta for the first time in 20 years because of back surgery.

NIU quarterback Drew Hare readies to throw during the first spring practice March 18 in the Chessick Center in DeKalb.

Hare will QB Black Team • HUSKIES Continued from page B1 At the Huskie Bowl, Hare will take all the reps for Joe Tripodi’s Black Team, while Maddie and McIntosh will be with Kelvin Sigler’s Cardinal squad. Carey said that wasn’t designed, it was just the way the draft worked out. Fall camp is shaping up for an intersting quarterback competition, and It’s looking like it will be a three-man

race in August. It’s possible three-star quarterbck prospect Landon Root out of Wichita, Kan., could find his way into the mix as well. Carey might not name a starter until the week of the season opener against FCS Presbyterian at Huskie Stadium. “We want a body of work to judge them,” Carey said. “Instead of a practice, or 11 practices, we want a body of work.”

Golf ’s future in good shape with these guys • MORRISSEY Continued from page B1 McIlroy and Spieth each shot 1-under-par 71s. Reed’s 73 would have looked a lot different if he hadn’t bogeyed each of the last three holes. All three golfers are within striking distance of first-round leader Bill Haas, who shot 68. Nobody knows if they’ll be battling each other for years to come. Golf is a capricious game. Bobby Clampett was supposed to be the next Nicklaus. It turns out he wasn’t even the next Howard Twitty. But there was a ton of talent in that threesome Thursday, a ridiculous amount of potential and possibility. The Masters champion easily could come out of this group, and I’m not sure it would be a huge upset if the winner

ended up being Reed or Spieth. They’re playing that well. When Reed won his first PGA tournament, the 2013 Wyndham Championship, he did it by beating Spieth in a playoff. Spieth has made $4.7 million the past 15 months. You don’t hear many people complaining he should be getting a college education instead of playing a game for a living. Apparently, there are different standards for young golfers and young basketball players. Age is a number. So is $8 million, the Masters’ purse this year. “There’s a lot of good guys coming up and coming through,” McIlroy said. “I feel like I’m one of the older of that … well, not older ...” No, you can’t be old when you’re 24. It’s not allowed. But you can be gaining in wisdom.

On the par-4 17th, Spieth unwisely went for the hole on his approach shot and found himself dealing with a difficult ridge on his putt. Neuroscience confirms that the decision-making ability of a 20-year-old brain isn’t always the best. It explains why Spieth just couldn’t help himself. McIlroy hit his shot 15 feet to the left of the pin and had an easier putt. “He knows the golf course, and we’re still learning it,” Spieth said. “But if in the process of learning you can shoot under par, then I think I’m in good shape.” So is golf’s future. One group showed us that Thursday.

Sharp leads late push

Bulls better since Deng trade By human standards, Patrick Sharp is quite young. By professional athlete standards, he’s a veteran. By Blackhawks standards, he’s downright old. But at 32 years – among the Hawks’ 17 forwards, only he, Michal Handzus and Marian Hossa are older than 28 – Sharp is in the best shape of his life and might be playing the best hockey of his career. And with Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane out of the lineup, he’s stepped up and played a major role in turning a three-game losing streak into a four-game winning streak, carrying the Hawks into the playoffs with a surge of momentum. Sharp has three goals and two assists in the past three games. His 34 goals are two off his career high set in 2007-08. His 44 assists beat his previous best by three. And his 78 points (so far) have shattered his previous best of 71 set in 2010-11 – so-called Stanley Cup hangovers seem to suit him well. “I like the responsibility shown,” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. “His leadership as part of the core group, in absence of two of our top guys – I think Sharpie’s stepped up to the plate and responded.” Sharp’s always been a goal-scorer. This is his fourth 30-goal season since being traded from Philadelphia to Chicago during the 2005-06 season. His 311 shots on goal are second only to Alex Ovechkin (whom the Hawks will face tonight in Washington), and are by far the most on the team (Marian Hossa is second at 236). Heck, even his dog is named Shooter. So it’s the passing numbers that really stand out. Yes, Sharp scored the game-winning goal in overtime Wednes-


3 named in police report No charges have been filed By CURT ANDERSON The Associated Press MIAMI – Three NFL players are named in a police report involving a woman who passed out in a hotel and later woke up in a hospital not knowing how she got there, though no one has been charged with a crime, authorities said Thursday. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and receiver Quinton Patton, and Seattle Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette were with the woman at a Miami hotel where Lockette lives, according to the Miami Police Department report. Police stressed that the report contained only unproven allegations at this point. “As far as whether there was a crime committed, it’s too early to say,” police spokeswoman Kenia Reyes said. The account of the woman, who was not identified by police, is described in the report: The woman mixed drinks and gave the men shots, and the men told her “in order to drink the shots she had to ‘hit’ the bong which contained marijuana.” The woman began feeling light-headed and went to lie down in a bedroom. Kaepernick came into the room, began kissing her and undressed her completely. The woman told police that they did not have sex, and that Kaepernick left the bedroom saying he’d be right back. A few minutes later, the woman told police, the other two men “peeked” inside. She said to them, “What are you doing? Where is Colin? Get out.” The report says the woman does not remember anything after that and later woke up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. She told police she has had a sexual relationship with Kaepernick in the past.

Like Toews and Kane and so many other Hawks, Sharp has logged a lot of miles in the past 15 months. That’s where all the office work has paid off. During training camp, Sharp earned the title of “Fittest Hawk,” testing through the roof. Sharp didn’t try to hide the fact that he was proud of it – especially given the competition on the team, and especially at his advanced (by his teammates’ standards, at least) age. “I think that helped out quite a bit, the training I did not only this summer, but all through my late 20s,” he said. “When you build that base and that foundation, you can always fall back on it. I feel good. Energy level’s high. Mentally, I’m motivated, I’m ready to play. I’m excited about the playoffs coming around. It’s a great time of year here in Chicago, and I just want to play as well as we can and have all those good feelings carry on into the playoffs.”

day night against Montreal. But it was his deft centering feed to Hossa for the game-tying goal in the final minute that was the play of the night. Certainly it helps that he’s spent most of the season on the Hawks’ top line with Toews and Hossa, as well as on the point on the power play. But although he always will be a shooter, he’s thinking pass a lot more than he did earlier in his career. “Yeah, I think that’s something that’s improved,” Sharp said. “Probably credit my linemates and the power play for a lot of those assists, because guys are putting the puck in. And I guess I’m a little bit older, a little more patient with the puck, and able to make those plays and not so excited to shoot. I know I shoot the • Mark Lazerus covers the puck a lot, but that used to be my main focus – just get it on Blackhawks for the Chicago net any way. Now I feel like I Sun-Times.

First, there’s a slight pause. There’s always that slight pause. Then the reply comes with a preface, something along the lines of: “We all love Luol . . .” Followed by a ubiquitous “but” before an attempted vague explanation. That’s how the Bulls handle being asked about life without Luol Deng these days and becoming a better team without him. Deng, a two-time AllStar, was traded Jan. 7 to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and words such as “tanking” and “lottery” were being thrown around in the immediate aftermath. And why not? Derrick Rose (right knee) was lost for the season, the team was 14-18 and although Deng still was “the glue,” he had said no to a last-minute extension of three years and $30 million. That’s some expensive “glue.” So he was dealt. All the Bulls have done since is go 32-14, move into a tie for the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and earn the label ‘‘the team no one wants to face in the playoffs.” There’s your tanking. “I feel like answering that question about why we’ve played better without Lu could lead to a lot of bad things,” swingman Jimmy Butler said. “But I feel like the simple answer is, we just kept playing. We didn’t give up. Even today, look where we are. People still don’t expect us to win, but somehow, someway we find a way to do just that.” Well, there’s more to it than that. With Deng this season, the Bulls’ defense was holding opponents to 92.2 points a game.

less resistance in the paint. Defensively, Butler can do what Deng did – guard the opposition’s best scorer – and he might be an even better oneon-one defender. But Noah has been the most affected and effective without Deng. Thibodeau has been closing games with Butler, Gibson and Noah and the two-point-guard attack of D.J. Augustin and Kirk Hinrich. That means a lot of pick-androlls with Noah, who makes teams pay with his passing. As opposed to making sure Deng was getting his touches, this offense is simply more efficient. “We had guys just step up, not make excuses,” Butler said. “Everybody just fell into a new role, and it happened so quick that you just had to adjust to it. It wasn’t something you had time to sit and think about. “But we love Lu.” And there it is. There’s always that but. Note: The Bulls announced that Mike James and Lou Amundson were signed for the rest of the season.

Since his exit, opponents are down to 91.2 points, not a huge difference but still a better defensive effort. The big change is offensively. The Bulls were averaging 91.3 points with Deng and are averaging about 95 points without him. “Guys are just stepping up, guys are getting more playing time, more shots,” backup big man Taj Gibson said. “Guys are taking advantage of it. Early on, we just learned from our mistakes, learned how to play without players, and our confidence has just been growing. Guys have been developing into their own great players.” Call it the Mike Dunleavy effect. “No one is going to leave Mike Dunleavy unguarded from the outside,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. That has been huge for the starting unit’s spacing, mean• Joe Cowley covers the Bulls ing power forward Carlos Boozer and center Joakim Noah have for the Chicago Sun-Times.

Avi Bass, a retired Northern Illinois University journalism professor, sits with a few of his favorite books of Haggadah, a Jewish text that is read during at a Passover Seder. Bass has collected about 40 Haggadah books from around the globe.

Haggadah tradition Families mark Passover with Seder guided by Jewish text By KATIE DAHLSTROM


vi Bass pours over the 40 copies of the Jewish texts known as books of Haggadah in his DeKalb home that he has collected from around the world. When the sun sets on Monday he and his family will read from their favorite Haggadah as they celebrate the freedom Jews were granted more than 3,000 years ago. Sunset on Monday marks the beginning of Passover, an eight-day celebration commemorating the emancipation of Isrealites from slavery in ancient Egypt following 10 plagues God inflicted as told in the Book of Exodus. “It’s a celebration of freedom,” said Bass, a member of Congregation Beth Shalom in DeKalb. “But you have to realize there are people in the world who are not free. Freedom is a virtue.” During the first two nights of Passover, Jews hold a special meal known as a Seder, which means “order” in Hebrew. Families mark the meal with prayers, songs, rituals and readings that are guided by the Haggadah. Thousands of versions of Haggadahs exist, Bass said, as he glanced through a few of his own. Among his collection is a Haggadah from Rome, which he said has a lot of features and an English translation he likes, along with another from Sarajevo. “It started as sort of a hobby, but then I began to wonder, ‘which one would you want to use at your own Seder?’” Bass said. “It becomes sort of a game to see how they’re different and compare them.” He also has one that looks like a medieval manuscript, though his favorite is a copy from not so far away that was published in 1972. That particular Haggadah, he said, has some sense of tradition and good notes. Each member of the family gets one, which is read for around an hour before the Seder meal begins, during the meal and for another 30 minutes or more following the meal, he said. Families will hold one Seder at home on Monday and Beth Shalom will host two community Seders, one on Tuesday that Bass will lead and another on Friday for the Northern Illinois University students in the Jewish organization, NIU Hillel. Beyond the Haggadah, Passover also is marked

Avi Bass shows one of his many books of Haggadah, this one given to him by his father and originally passed out to Jewish soldiers in the military. Bass’s father worked for the National Jewish Welfare Board. The Haggadah is read at traditional Passover Seders. by the special foods that Jews must eat or refrain from. Before Passover begins, foods with risen yeast are to be removed from the house to commemorate the Jews leaving Egypt in such a hurry they did not have time to let the bread in their homes rise. The foods eaten during the meal itself evoke memories of a time before Jewish people were free, Congregation Beth Shalom President Rob Feldacker explained. The meal consists of an egg, to symbolize life; bitter herbs, to remember the bitterness of slavery; parsley, dipped in salt water to remember the tears of the enslaved; a pasty mixture of apples, nuts and honey known as charoset to represent the mortar mixture used by slaves in Egypt; and a lamb shankbone that represents the pascal lamb sacrifice that

took place the night ancient Hebrews fled Egypt. Matzo, an unleavened bread, as well as four glasses of wine also complete the meal. While Passover is steeped in tradition, some things have changed over the years, including the number of foods deemed not Kosher to eat during Passover, Feldacker said. As more foods come into public use, Jews are prompted to ask if they are suitable to eat during the holiday, which is determined by a council. Some things, however, don’t change. “For me, it’s always been this idea that you’re supposed to remember you were a slave in Egypt,” Feldacker said. “While you are sitting free and merry, there are those around you who are not. You have to look to those in bondage and work to make them free.”

SUMC holds spring choral celebration this weekend “Steps,” the SUMC Spring Choral Celebration, will feature a wide variety of musical groups at all three worship services on Saturday and Sunday. The Saturday service is at 5 p.m., and will be followed by refreshments. The Sunday services are at 8:30 and 10 a.m., with a coffee fellowship between the services. This Palm Sunday program, assembled by music director Bev Rauch, was inspired by a sermon that SUMC member Cheryl Callighan preached about a year ago called “Are You Wearing the Right Shoes?” In the process of helping Callighan pick music for the service, Rauch discovered a multitude of songs related to walking with God. The pieces include a wide diversity of styles, including the gospel numbers “Order My Steps” and “Just a Closer Walk with Thee,” which features saxophonist Jim Selig.

Children are an important part of the service, including a palm processional to Michael W. Smith’s “Hosanna,” Kid’s Choir, directed by Phyllis Horst and Cris Woodin, and “When You Believe” for Junior and Adult Choir, from “The Prince of Egypt.” Peggy Carey and Jesse Martin direct the Junior Choir. Adult Handbells, directed by Mary Thomas, also will be featured for the first time in the spring cantata. The 40-voice Adult Choir is accompanied by Craig Fritz. The Spring Choral Celebration also features small groups, such as Good News! Men’s Quartet, directed by Doug Elder, and the folk sounds and harmonies of Marcia Watson, Paul Watson and Phyllis Horst. Diane Markwell and Larry Welch serve as narrators. Sycamore United Methodist is located at 160 Johnson Ave. Child care is provided at the 10 a.m. Sunday service. For more information, call the church office at 815-895-9113.

8BRIEFS Choir cantata highlights Maundy Thursday service The community is invited to attend a dramatic and emotional Maundy Thursday tenebrae service at The Federated Church in Sycamore at 7 p.m. Thursday. Featured will be the cantata, “Song of The Shadows,” by Joseph M. Martin, performed by the chancel choir. The cantata follows the progression of Holy Week events from Jesus’ triumphant Palm Sunday procession through his crucifixion. Communion will be observed at the appropriate time in the cantata, as Jesus serves the Last Supper to his disciples. As the mood gets darker, so does the sanctuary, as eight candles are extinguished one by one. The Federated Church is an open and affirming congregation and welcomes any and all who wish to worship with them. The church is located at 612 W. State St., Sycamore. Parking is available behind the building.

Daily Chronicle /

State of modern marriage mirrors society Dear Abby: My wife and I were discussing our sons-inlaw, and young men in their 20s and 30s in general. We were wondering where the attitude of “any money I earn is mine” in a marriage or live-in situation got started. For the first few years of my daughter and her husband “Joe’s” marriage, Joe resented giving her any of the money he earned. My other daughter’s husband thinks nothing of spending money on himself and his friends without consulting her. We have seen this attitude reflected in their friends as well. They don’t seem to discuss with each other how each is spending their “joint” income. There seems to be an element of selfishness, too. My wife and I have been married 40 years and from

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips the beginning I have always considered what each of us earned was OURS, not mine or hers (when she worked). We always discuss any significant purchases, and I have always believed it was my responsibility to support my family. I realize the current economic situation has made that difficult, but the attitude should still be there. – Wondering in Washington Dear Wondering: You have raised an interesting subject. There is a difference between living together and being married because of our legal system. Because people who co-habit without benefit of

marriage are considered individuals in the eyes of the law, it is probably prudent to keep their financial affairs separate. However, each person should contribute to the expenses they share. In a marriage, the situation is different: The law assumes that the man and wife are one unit. This is the mindset you adopted when you and your wife were married. There is a tendency among young couples, not only because of the high divorce rate, but also what they have been exposed to in the media from the time they were born, to view marriage as something that might not last. There is also a sense of entitlement among many – NOT ALL – that makes them centered on themselves. We have become a society in which disposability has spread from material

possessions to relationships. I would LOVE to hear what my readers’ – particularly my younger readers’ – views are regarding this. Click on the link “Write to Dear Abby” at or write to P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Dear Abby: We are fortunate to have great friends and relatives who invite us to their homes for parties, celebrations, overnight stays, etc. often. The problem is, their houses are cluttered and dirty. We see spilled food in the refrigerator, showers caked with grime and years of stains on upholstery. Money and time are not issues for these folks. If this was a hotel or restaurant, we would leave immediately. My husband and I have been unnerved by the conditions in these houses. We would

like to spend time with these people and don’t wish to offend. Subtle hints don’t help. We try our best to enjoy their company and ignore the rest, but it can be difficult. What can we do, Abby? – Neat in New York Dear Neat: When you go to visit, stay in a nearby hotel or motel. If you know food will be served, fortify yourself beforehand and eat as little as possible without being rude. If you’re afraid you might soil your clothing sitting on their furniture, leave anything that isn’t washable at home.

Use precautions when taking acetaminophen Dear Dr. K: As I’ve entered my 50s, I find myself reaching for Tylenol more often for my aches and pains. Should I be aware of any safety precautions? Dear Reader: Acetaminophen is the active ingredient in Tylenol and several other over-the-counter medications. As with all medications, you should use it cautiously. But if you stick to the guidelines, there’s little need to worry. Acetaminophen controls pain and fever; it is an important drug for controlling chronic pain. But taking too much acetaminophen can damage the liver. In extreme cases, this liver damage can require a liver transplant, or even cause death. For the average healthy adult, the recommended max-

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff imum dose is no more than 4,000 milligrams (mg) per day from all sources. Some of my patients who regularly take between 3,000 mg and 4,000 mg have had abnormalities of the liver that show up on blood tests. I think their livers are particularly sensitive to acetaminophen. So I recommend that all my patients try to stay below 3,000 mg per day. If they need more than that for adequate pain relief, I monitor their liver tests carefully. There are many pills available over-the-counter that contain acetaminophen

– more than 600 products. This includes many pain pills and sleep-aid pills. For any non-prescription medicines that you take regularly, be sure to check the bottle to see if it contains acetaminophen, and how much. The combination of these pills plus regular acetaminophen pills can nudge you into the red zone. If you have concerns, ask your doctor how much acetaminophen you should be able to tolerate safely. And check with your doctor if you need to take acetaminophen regularly for chronic pain. Here are some general precautions for avoiding an accidental overdose: • Cold and flu remedies count. When you reach for an over-the-counter cough, cold or flu product, look at the

label. Does it contain acetaminophen? • Know the dose of your pills. Acetaminophen pills available over the counter may contain 325, 500 or 650 mg of the drug. On my website, I’ve put a table showing how often and how much you can safely take of each dose. • Stick to recommended doses. Don’t be tempted to take more than the recommended dose. Take only as much as you need. Try not to exceed 3,000 mg a day if possible. • Go easy on the alcohol. Drinking alcohol causes the liver to convert more of the acetaminophen you take into toxic byproducts. • Know if your medications interact. Ask your doctor if any of your prescription med-

ications could interact badly with acetaminophen. Non-prescription medicines available over the counter are generally safe when taken as directed on the bottle. But that doesn’t mean that they’re safe in any amount. About 10 years ago, the sister of a close colleague was having terrible back pain and took 8,000 mg per day of acetaminophen for several days. It caused liver failure, from which she died. Respect the directions on all over-thecounter medicines. They are there for a reason.

Alcohol is a depressant. Just stop drinking Dr. Wallace: I’m 16 and have been dating my boyfriend for five months, and I really love him. I was a virgin when we met, and then about a month ago we had sex. If we hadn’t been drinking, I don’t think I would ever have let this happen. But since then, we had sex a couple of more times and I thought he was really in love with me, too. Now he is always doing things with his male friends and hardly ever calls me. I keep calling him, and he

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace says he still loves me and says we’ll go out on the weekend, but then he calls and cancels. I’m starting to think his friends are more important than I am and he doesn’t seem to have much time for me. In fact, now I think he is really avoiding me. My mother thinks he is

TODAY – This will be a very promising year for you. Your work ethic and dependability will put you in high demand. The number of options available to you will only keep increasing. Follow your intuition, and you will triumph in your personal and professional lives. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Keep an up-to-date record of your business contacts. Don’t be shy if you are looking to change or advance your career. Networking with friends can prove beneficial, as well. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – You will feel energetic and in high spirits. Get together with a close friend for a day of fun and laughter. A shopping spree or sightseeing excursion could lead to romance. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Your home may not be the safe haven that you’d like it to be. Minor disagreements could develop into major arguments. You can avoid trouble if you keep your opinions to yourself. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Stop hesitating and take the plunge. Your life is not going to change if you wait for others to make the first move. Take the initiative and chase your goals. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Keep your eyes and ears open to any financial suggestions you receive. Be ready to take action. Moving decisively and quickly could pave the way to an unexpected moneymaking venture. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Overindulgence is not an answer to your problems. If you are distressed or confused, talk it out with someone you trust. Someone from your past is likely to want to re-enter your life. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – You may discover some money that you had forgotten about. Now is the best time to complete any unfinished chores or tackle tasks that you have been putting off. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Find an imaginative way to sell your ideas. Your talents will go unnoticed unless you market your skills effectively. Take any opportunity to help others in your community. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – You should remain observant and tight-lipped today. If you are too open, you will leave yourself open to criticism. Don’t give anyone the chance to use your words against you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Changes are happening all around you. Now is a good time for reflection and contemplation. Imagine ways to improve your life, and examine different avenues that will help get you there. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – You may be intrigued by a fascinating opportunity. Before you sign something or make an investment, look into the legal details. Rather than take a gamble, you should make an informed decision. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – You are likely to meet someone who will take a special place in your heart. Talking about your intentions will lead to long-term plans. Put love and romance first.

just a typical 16-year-old boy and his friends are important to him, but she doesn’t know about the sex. I really feel guilty about what happened because I planned to be a virgin when I got married and now I am starting to drink almost every day which makes me feel even worse instead of helping me forget my troubles. Do you think I should try to get him back or just forget about him? Please hurry with your answer. – Nameless, Baltimore, Md.


Nameless: You made a mistake, but you must learn from your mistake and get on with your life. Drinking is not the way to do this. It might make you forget your unhappiness for a short time, but afterward you’re even worse off. Alcohol is a depressant; all it’s doing is digging you into a deeper hole. The best thing to do is to stop chasing this boy. The two of you got into something over your heads – and that something was not love.

He knows it and so do you. But if you do go out with him again, DO NOT HAVE SEX! As I have mentioned many times in this column, sexual activity does far more harm than good in a relationship. And, again, lay off the alcohol!

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

This deal defeats many players William Shakespeare wrote, “Defer no time, delays have dangerous ends.” How wrong could he be when applied to bridge? Many players make mistakes because they play too quickly. In particular, when a defender is on lead, a delay or two ... or three ... for analysis is rarely a bad idea. In this deal, for example, West leads the heart two against four spades. What should East do? North responds with four clubs, a perfect splinter bid, showing at least four-card spade support, game-going values and at most a singleton in clubs. East was tempted to overcall four hearts. However, the vulnerability was unfavorable, East presumably had two cast-iron defensive tricks (so the opponents did not have a slam), and North-South owned the master suit. (Note that if East does intervene with a four-heart bid, South should pass. North would be delighted to double for penalty and the price would be 1,100 or 1,400.) East knows that his partner has led a singleton. So, many a defender wins with his heart ace and immediately gives his partner a ruff. After that, there is no longer a defense. East should consider his target. Four tricks are needed, not three. From the pointcount, West is known to have a Yarborough. So, East must organize his diamond ruff before giving West his spade ruff. At trick two, East should shift to his diamond. Declarer will win in the dummy and play a spade, but East takes the trick and leads the heart eight, a suit-preference signal for diamonds. West, after ruffing, returns a diamond, and East’s ruff defeats the contract.
