Changes, projects in initial watershed planning study By KATIE DAHLSTROM kdahlstrom@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – DeKalb County officials and landowners could implement a slew of changes and projects to improve water quality and reduce flooding, initial findings from a watershed planning study suggest. The DeKalb County Stormwater Management Committee, which has been working with the DeKalb County Community Foundation since 2009 to address flooding and water quality issues in the county, released the initial findings from an 18-month watershed study Thursday night. A watershed is an area of land where all the water that runs off the surface or flows underground goes to the same place. Watersheds don’t follow geographic or political boundaries, prompting DeKalb County and Kane County officials to collaborate on improvement efforts. The stormwater management steering committee is currently studying the east branch of the Kishwaukee River’s south branch, a 123-square-mile watershed that stretches from Sycamore and Cortland into Kane County, Campton Hills and Lily Lake and from Burlington to Maple Park. The watershed

DeKalb firefighters stand by Friday as a member of the Illinois State Police Meth Response Team in a hazmat suit enters the residence at 418 N. Eleventh St. in DeKalb to collect hazardous material from the active meth lab found by DeKalb police in a second-story apartment.

By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI jduchnowski@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Three people on probation for methamphetamine-related crimes in DeKalb face new charges after police said they stumbled upon an active meth lab about 1:30 p.m. Friday. DeKalb police declined to reveal which of the three suspects they saw making methamphetamine in the upstairs apartment at 418 N. Eleventh St., but all three face the same charges; the most serious is punishable with between six and 30 years in prison. Michael J. Dumiak, 30; Malgorzata M. Dutkowska, 25, and Jennifer Simpson, 32, were charged with aggravated participation in the production of methamphetamine, participation in the production of meth-

amphetamine, and possession of methamphetamine manufacturing equipment. Police said Dumiak and Dutkowska were living together in apartment No. 3 upstairs, while Simpson was living in apartment No. 1 at 418 N. Eleventh St. Police said they knocked on the upstairs apartment door as

part of their ongoing investigation sparked by the meth lab discovered in October at Travel Inn in DeKalb. The apartment building was evacuated Friday, and local firefighters and the Illinois State Police Meth Response Team removed the lab without incident. Meth labs can create toxic fumes and explode, making them dangerous when operated in densely populated areas, such as the Pleasant Street neighborhood, DeKalb Police Chief Eugene Lowery said. “Identifying, stabilizing and shutting down operations of this nature are a high priority,” Lowery said. “This is part of our ongoing proactive policing strategy to interdict crimes of this nature.”

Jennifer A. Simpson is accused of making methamphetamine.

Malgorzata Dutkowska is accused of making methamphetamine.

Michael Dumiak is accused of making methamphetamine.

After the watershed study is completed in June, members of the DeKalb County Stormwater Management Committee will finalize the stormwater management plan and recommend changes to officials. Committee members will continue to investigated grant opportunities to implement some of the changes.

Local centenarians share thoughts on marriage, work, longevity By KATIE DAHLSTROM kdahlstrom@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Mavis Bell hasn’t had a birthday party in 15 years, and her 105th birthday Sunday won’t be an exception. It’s not because being one of only 55,000 Americans who are 100 years old or older isn’t worth celebrating, but because parties aren’t her style anymore. “My last party was at 90,” she said. “That was enough.” Instead she’ll honor the day with calls from family, socializing and maybe a little knitting in her apartment at Oak Crest DeKalb Area Retirement Center, where she’s one of six

While many from the 100-and-older population share common characteristics, local centenarians said there’s no magic formula for hitting the century mark. “There’s no trick to it,” Bell said. “You just work hard and take things as they come.” There are some trends nationwide among those who were born before World War I began, according to the U.S. Census Bureau Report, “The Centenarian Population: 20072011.”

Bell was married – and widowed – twice. She married her first husband, Leroy Gliddon, when she was 16 and graduated from high school a year later. They were married until he died in 1965 at the age of 59. Three years later, she married Clyde Bell, who died at 96 in 1996. “I don’t know that marriage keeps you.

Why we think Illinois stinks Illinoisans say that Illinois stinks. In a poll released this week by the Gallup organization, Illinois leads the country in the percentage of its residents who said their state is the worst place to live in the country. One in four Illinoisans surveyed said Illinois is the worst. Last out of 50. The Land of Stinkin’, a train wreck on the prairie. People in Rhode Island and Connecticut are pretty down on their states, too, but only 18 percent of them said they were the worst. There’s no accounting for taste, I guess. If you like mountains or the oceanside, or cold, snowy winter days are a deal-breaker, then maybe Illinois isn’t the place for you. But the worst state in the country? That never even occurred to me. Still, we’re losing people, either mentally or physically. Of the people who were my classmates and friends at the University of Illinois in the 1990s, most of them have left the state and will probably never come back. Two live in Texas. One is in South Dakota. A few are in California – or were last I knew. One lives in Dublin, Ireland. All of them were Illinois natives. What’s wrong?: There’s been a yearslong drumbeat of negativity about Illinois. So many stories have been written that include “Illinois” and “worst in the nation.” Illinois’ high taxes and unemployment have people fleeing the state, we’re told – just look at how many people used United Van Lines to move away. Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan is portrayed as an emperor-like figure who rules us at his whim. Illinois’ kazillion-dollar unfunded pension liability is going to crush us, but reducing any promises to pensioners would be an unconscionable act of bad faith. Neighboring states Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa are held up as so much better. They’re going to steal away Illinois businesses, because they’re much better places to live and work, and then we’ll all be sorry. Or then we’ll all be Hoosiers or Hawkeyes or Badgers,

EDITOR’S NOTE Eric Olson which might be the same thing. Those states are all nice places, but if they were so swell, they wouldn’t be trying to play beggar-thy-neighbor to try to lure away Illinois businesses. They would already have enough of their own. Indianapolis, Des Moines, Milwaukee – those would be the “it” cities in the Midwest. But they’re not. The problem, however, is that when outsiders hear that we think our state is the worst in the country … well, they probably assume we ought to know. And why would they want to join us? Will it change?: Maybe the fact that so many people say this is the worst state in the country is a sign enough people are angry and we can start to turn things around. Our government is a big part of the problem. Another Gallup poll released this month found Illinoisans have the lowest level of trust in state government. Only 28 percent of us trust state government “a great deal” or “a fair amount.” The next-lowest scores are 40 percent of people. That’s no surprise. Two governors in a row wound up in federal prison. Legislators broke their word to make an income tax increase temporary, and even with the increase the financial problems are still dire and unsolved. What’s most depressing is that people will go out and vote back in the same jokers who did it. Going forward, we have to accept the reality that we either have to tax people more or spend less on government. We can’t keep trying to have it both ways the way we have tried to for years. People want government programs, good jobs with good wages and comfortable retirements that begin as early as possible. We’d also like someone else to pay for it. But it shouldn’t be senior citizens or state retirees – we don’t want to tax

retirement income. Taxing the middle class isn’t fair, we need them to buy things. It’s no fair to tax the poor, but if you try to tax millionaires, they’ll leave the state (sure they will.) If we tax businesses more, they won’t stay or expand. Try to cut government spending, and you hear that it will hurt our most vulnerable residents – the poor, the elderly, and the children. Or you’re accused of not caring about pre-K education, or whatever pet project is up for consideration. Illinoisans don’t pay enough to support the size of government we have, and the pension crisis is evidence that we haven’t paid the cost of government we’ve already used. At the local level, we have almost 7,000 units of local government, the most of any state in the country. There is too much taxpayer-supported bureaucracy, too many governments and government jobs. We can’t afford it all any more. Remember that the next time someone tells you the state’s 1,432 townships, which perform functions that could easily be assumed by other local governments, are so essential. Even if we got rid of all of them, Illinois would still have the most units of government of any state in the country. Not the worst: Still, there’s so much more to a place than its government problems. Every state (yes, even Texas) has problems of its own. Illinois has some of the best infrastructure of any state in the Midwest. There’s plenty of water to drink, some of the best farmland in the country. We move cargo all over the country, by rail, air and water. There’s a world class city, there’s an educated workforce, and it’s beautiful in the springtime. We’re not even close to the worst. Now we just need to prove it to more of our own people.

8 TODAY’S TALKER

Nev. rancher had limited sympathy in the West The ASSOCIATED PRESS BUNKERVILLE, Nev. – For a while, in certain quarters, Cliven Bundy was celebrated as a John Wayne-like throwback to the Old West – a weathered, plainspoken rancher just trying to graze his cattle and keep government off his back. But that was before he started sounding more like a throwback to the Old South. Conservative politicians and commentators who once embraced Bundy for standing up to Washington are stampeding away from him – and branding him an out-and-out racist – after he wondered aloud whether blacks had it better as slaves picking cotton. The furor has made it apparent how limited Bundy’s appeal ever was. Bundy, 67, and his armed supporters thwarted an attempt by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management two weeks ago to seize his family’s cattle over his failure to pay $1.1 million in grazing fees and penalties for the use of government land over the past 20 years. A local land-use dispute soon turned into a national debate, with conservatives calling it another example of big-government overreach. But the rugged West that Bundy was said to represent has changed, becoming more urban and less concerned about federal intrusion than it was during the so-called Sagebrush Rebellion in the 1970s and ’80s. Even many of Bundy’s fellow ranchers, now very much in the minority in the region, regard him more as a deadbeat than a hero. Eric Herzik, a political science professor at the University of Nevada, Reno, said Bundy was made into a hero by conservative activists and journalists in New York and Washington “who did not understand how extreme Cliven Bundy is ... even among Sagebrush rebels and Nevada ranchers.” In fact, the remote area outside Las Vegas where he and his supporters made their stand is represented by a

Rancher Cliven Bundy (second from left) hugs a supporter Thursday before holding a news conference near Bunkerville, Nev. Bundy, a Nevada rancher who became a conservative folk hero for standing up to the government in a fight over grazing rights, lost some of his staunch defenders Thursday after wondering aloud whether blacks might have had it better under slavery. black Democrat, Rep. Steve Horsford. The congressman said in an interview Friday that many of the people in the small towns in the region, which has drawn an increasing number of retirees and tourists seeking to enjoy its open spaces, are frustrated with Bundy. “They are very upset because he has brought such negative attention to the area,” Horsford said. “He does not reflect Nevada or the views of the West.” The BLM claims Bundy’s cattle are trespassing on fragile habitat set aside for the endangered desert tortoise. Bundy said he doesn’t recognize federal authority over lands around his property that his cattle have grazed on for years. After the BLM called off the roundup and released about 350 animals back to Bundy, the rancher drew praise from many Republicans – most notably Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, a likely 2016

presidential candidate – and condemnation from several Democrats. Then, in an interview in Thursday’s New York Times, he suggested that “the Negro” might have been better off during slavery rather than on government welfare. In a statement Friday, defended himself by saying he is “trying to keep Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream alive.” Railing against the BLM, the IRS and the National Security Agency, he said: “What I am saying is that all we Americans are trading one form of slavery for another.” Before the newspaper story broke, Gov. Brian Sandoval and Sen. Dean Heller, Republicans who got their political start in the sparsely populated northern end of the state, issued statements supportive of Bundy’s side. Bundy’s racial comments, however, drew bipartisan condemnation.

Students plant tree for Arbor Day By ANDREA AZZO

First-grader Mackenzie Ferguson dumps dirt into the hole where a new tree was planted Friday on Arbor Day at Southeast Elementary School. Officials planted an autumn blaze maple tree.

aazzo@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Southeast Elementary School firstgrade teacher Suzy Middleton watched her class help plant a tree Friday near the school playground. The autumn blaze maple tree, a donation from Poplar Farms Nursery in Waterman, was planted in honor of Arbor Day, a tree-planting holiday traditionally held on the last Friday in April. “They’ll always look at that and feel proud, because they know they were a part of planting that tree,” Middleton said. Fred Busse, Sycamore Public Works director, helped with the planting. He said the tree-planting was a requirement for the city of Sycamore to qualify for the Tree City USA Award, which is given by The Arbor Day Foundation. Sycamore has been participating in The Arbor Day Foundation award program for nine years. “It’s nice for the kids to plant a tree,” Busse said. “They’ll see it from now until high school.” The tree will soon sprout

bright red leaves and provide shade for students, said Southeast Elementary School Principal Mark Ekstrom. First-graders are chosen to participate in planting trees because their school curriculum fits perfectly with nature-related efforts. First-graders also will plant produce seeds in June, with crops such as tomatoes and carrots to be harvest-

ed at the end of July, Ekstrom said. “They have more of an understanding of what they can do to help the environment,” he said. “They know plants are a big key to that.” “This is a new beginning. A new start,” Ekstrom said. Middleton was asking her first-grade class what they learned about seeds, a topic

they have covered in class. One girl explained how apple seeds can become apple trees. Middleton’s class has also dissected Lima beans and learned that trees are the largest plants. This week, they’ll learn about stems and trunks, Middleton said. “We’ve got to teach them young,” she said, “so they’ll continue it on as they grow.”

Daily Chronicle journalists win Associated Press awards DAILY CHRONICLE Daily Chronicle journalists won 15 awards, including nine first-place awards, in the 2013 Illinois Associated Press Media Editors Association contest, results of which were released Friday. The Daily Chronicle competed in Division C of the contest, which was for newspapers with a circulation of 15,000 or less. “It’s gratifying to see our staff recognized for their work,” Daily Chronicle Editor Eric Olson said. “We’re very lucky to have a talented group of people working to report the news every day.” Among the winners were photographer Monica Maschak, whose photo of the Sycamore football team cele-

brating a win in the playoffs took first place in the sports action photo category. Page designer Paul Wleklinski won a first-place award for best newspaper page design, and sports writer Steve Nitz took first place in the sports column or blog category. The staff also won a firstplace award for public service for coverage of the IHSA football championships coming to NIU for the first time, and won first place for best newspaper website and multimedia storytelling. The Chronicle’s sports staff took first place for breaking sports news coverage for their work in covering Northern Illinois’ 47-27 loss in the Mid-American Conference championship football game.

Sycamore mulls electric aggregation deal Waiting on ComEd rates for energy contract choice By ANDREA AZZO aazzo@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Sycamore city officials are waiting to learn ComEd’s electricity rates before deciding whether to extend a contract with First Energy that ends in August. Sycamore City Manager Brian Gregory said he needs more time to see what exactly ComEd’s rates will be before suggesting a next step for the city’s bulk electricity purchasing program. “We know rates are going to move up,” he said. “The question is where ComEd rates are,

which won’t come out until later in the summer.” The electric aggregation program, which allows residents to band together to secure lower electrical rates, was authorized in Sycamore in March 2012. The city entered into a two-year contract with First Energy for a fixed electricity rate of 4.81 cents a kilowatt hour, records show. Since the program began, participating households have saved an average of $400 in electricity supply costs compared with what they would have paid with ComEd, for a cumulative citywide savings

of more than $1.5 million. Gregory said ComEd has been raising its electricity rates, so it is advisable to wait before reaching an agreement with a company. “The goal would be to see one or two of these companies. If there’s an outlier that saves us money, then we go that route,” he said. Northern Illinois Municipal Electric Collaborative anticipates ComEd’s rates to fall to 7.5 cents a kilowatt hour in June, the agenda states. Paul Callighan, ComEd external affairs director, said ComEd’s rates are established

by the cost of power generation and that ComEd makes no profit off the costs. Power for ComEd customers is purchased through the Illinois Power Authority on a bidding process that is overseen by the Illinois Commerce Commission. ComEd’s rates will be known in the first week of May and will take effect in June. “We’re not in a position to be able to talk about electricity rate trends or future rate trends since we’re not directly involved in that process,” Callighan said. The resolution will be brought back to City Council on June 2 with updated prices.

Dale was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the United Methodist Church of Sycamore. He and his wife were volunteers of the Methodist Church food pantry. Dale was a shipping clerk for Anaconda Wire and Cable for 34 years. He was a bank guard at The National Bank & Trust Co. of Sycamore for 30 years. Many customers remember his smile and greeting when they entered the bank. Dale spent every summer playing golf at Sycamore Community Golf Course. He achieved every golfer’s dream: a hole in one. Dale turned 90 in 2013, as did the Sycamore golf course. He bowled in leagues and lately bowled at Mardi Gras Bowling Alley with the senior group. He even bowled on his 90th birthday in December. He also loved to fish on Clam Lake and Lake Razorback in Wisconsin each summer. His cousin, Don Coombs, and family usually joined the Kingsnorths for the annual fishing trips. Dale was an ardent sports fan. He cheered for the Chicago Cubs, Bears and Bulls. He was a regular at Sycamore High School prep games throughout the decades and enjoyed analyzing the games at the local coffee shops with the guys. Dale always had a mystery book in his hand to read and was a fan of “Gunsmoke” and other classic Western TV shows and movies. He often said he thought he was born in the wrong century and had a kinship for the Wild West. Dale loved 1940s music and Bing Crosby was his favorite singer. Working in the yard was a favorite pastime as well. He even was seen shoveling snow on the coldest day of the winter in January. Dale was a quiet man. However, he loved to be around family and friends. He was very involved with his children and grandchildren, attending every piano recital, school program, soccer game, basketball game, etc. He loved the family holiday traditions, especially his wife’s pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. He is survived by his wife, Lorraine; daughters, Julie Ann Kingsnorth and Rita (Scott) Kohler; granddaughters, Mary and Katherine Kohler; brother, Orval “Mose” (Sally) Kingsnorth; sister, Lorraine (the late Jim) Hendron of Edgerton, Wis.; and many nieces and nephews.

Term limits issue could be tricky for Quinn By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn distinguished himself early in his political career as a fighter for term limits, but this election year it’s Illinois Republicans who are championing efforts to cap lawmakers’ time in office. The proposals, including a legislative one this week, put Quinn in a tricky spot as he asks voters for a second full term after rising to the office from lieutenant governor. Over the years he’s painted himself

as an outsider and is known for embracing such populist ideas but Republican businessman Bruce Rauner has seized the issue and criticized Quinn’s commitment. At the same time, term limit proposals don’t have backing from top Democrats and Quinn has stumbled when committing to a term limit for himself. “It makes the governor uncomfortable, puts him back on his heels a little bit,” said Christopher Mooney, director of the Institute of Government and Public Affairs at the University of Illinois. “It’s hard to

be the outsider when you’ve been governor for six years.” Quinn was put on the defensive this week when Republican leaders of the House and Senate introduced a last-minute measure calling for term limits Gov. Pat for statewide Quinn officers. Rauner used the chance to dig into Quinn’s campaign themes of advocating for working people, calling for Quinn to take the

“people’s side on the issue.��� The governor came back with a statement saying he’d supported term limits since 1994 when he led efforts to get it on the ballot. He also cited his past work for other constitutional amendments to reduce the size of the House in 1980. “Constitutional amendments have long allowed the power of the people to translate into positive reform for Illinois government,” Quinn said in the statement. “I hope voters have the chance to consider this constitutional amendment on the ballot.”

NATO protesters get from 5 to 8 years in prison The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Three protesters acquitted of terrorism for plotting Molotov cocktail attacks in Chicago during a NATO summit were sentenced to prison terms Friday of between five and eight years on lesser arson and mob-action charges. Among the targets the activists discussed attacking during the 2012 event, prosecutors said, was President Barack Obama’s campaign headquarters, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s house and police facilities. Despite their acquittals during a February trial on all

Brian Church

terrorism counts – brought under a rarely used Illinois statute – the issue remained at the forefront of Friday’s five-hour sentencing hearing. Judge Thaddeus Wilson raised it himself in his remarks minutes before imposing the sentences, saying the plan to lob gas-filled bottles at the targets, had it been carried out,

would have struck fear in the city. “It might not be terrorism,” the Cook County circuit judge Brent said. “But it is Vincent terrorizing.” Betterly All three were convicted of the same charges, but Brian Church, 22, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., ended up getting the shortest sentence – five years. Jared Chase, 29, of Keene, N.H., got the longest, eight years; and Brent Betterly, 26, of Oakland Park, got six years. With credit for their two

years in jail awaiting trial, all three could end up serving less than a third of their designated sentences. Church could be out in less than a year. The decision by Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez to prosecute the three under the state’s terrorism statute raised eyebrows at the time. A conviction on that charge carries a maximum life sentence. Lead prosecutor Jack Blakey began his statement urging Wilson to hand all three men 14-year sentences by referring to the Boston Marathon bombings one year ago, which left three people dead and hundreds injured.

Willie Stinson, 61, was charged Friday, April 25, with criminal trespass to railroad.

tional obligations needed to pass Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno’s bill. Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan’s spokesman Steve Brown said the timing was “suspicious” and the late filing indicated there wasn’t support. Senate President John Cullerton’s spokeswoman said the proposal would get a look, but the timing made things difficult. “There really is a very tight, if not impossible, window for us to work with here,” said Cullerton spokeswoman Rikeesha Phelon.

Even as voters generally support term limits, the chances for the proposal look slim. For one, it needs a three-fifths vote in both the Democrat-led House and Senate before a Illinois State Board of Elections deadline to submit amendments to the constitution. Also, top Democrats have questioned the timing of the plan, which would limit the state’s constitutional officers including the governor, comptroller and treasurer, to two terms of four years each.

Possible GOP presidential Student stabbed to death candidates court NRA in Conn.; teen charged The ASSOCIATED PRESS

INDIANAPOLIS – Several potential Republican presidential candidates courted gunrights supporters Friday at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention, talking up their pro-gun credentials while imploring the crowd to fight not just for their Second Amendment rights but for other freedoms they say are being threatened. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, ex-Pennsylvania U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal addressed the NRA’s annual leadership forum, a political pep rally the organization considers one of its premier events. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire also recorded brief videos played for the crowd of 2,000 at Lucas Oil Stadium. One after another, the possible 2016 contenders thanked the NRA and its members for flexing their considerable political muscle to help push back recent gun-control efforts, including legislation after the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut that would have re-

Jindal charged that Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, both possible Democratic presidential candidates, think the Second Amendment is little more than “a phrase from a speech writer.” “If they had their way they’d simply cut and paste the Constitution and just get rid of the Second Amendment entirely,” said Jindal, who approved several gun rights bills last year, including one that creates stiff penalties for those who know-

ingly publish the names of gun permit holders. Rubio opposed limiting gun rights after Sandy Hook, but he also saw his NRA grade drop from an A to a B+ amid criticism of his stance on some gunrights legislation. He said Friday that being able to provide a safe home for one’s family is fundamental to achieving the American dream. And he said that while gun-rights supporters were outraged and saddened by violence such as Sandy Hook, public policy “must be guided by common sense.” “Making it harder for law-abiding Americans to defend themselves has not, does not and will not prevent future tragedies such as these,” Rubio said. Both Santorum and Pence noted their wives share their love of guns. Pence, who approved a measure this year to allow guns in locked vehicles on school property, said when he met his wife, she had a gun and a motorcycle and “it was love at first sight.” Santorum said it’s not just gun rights that are under assault. He called on the NRA’s millions of members to also fight for religious freedom and First Amendment rights.

students were gathered in an auditorium when a teacher came and told them Sanchez had been stabbed. “She basically just explained to us that Maren Sanchez got stabbed in the throat for saying no about going to prom” with the suspect, she said. Langston said she saw the suspect taken out of the school in handcuffs. She said Sanchez and the boy were friends but had never dated. She said Sanchez had helped to organize the junior prom and was looking forward to attending with her boyfriend. The dance was scheduled for Friday night but was postponed because of the stabbing. In class Thursday, Sanchez “told me about her prom dress, she told me how she got asked to prom,” Langston said. “We were just laughing, talking about what we were going to do when we got there, how many pictures we were going to take.”

The ASSOCIATED PRESS HARTFORD, Conn. – A 16-year-old girl was stabbed to death inside a Connecticut high school Friday, and police were investigating whether a boy attacked her after she turned down an invitation to be his prom date. Maren Sanchez was stabbed in a hallway of Jonathan Law High School in Milford, about an hour’s drive from New York City, around 7:15 a.m. Staff members and paramedics performed life-saving measures on the girl, but she was pronounced dead at a hospital, police said. The 16-year-old boy was charged with murder as a juvenile offender. Police said the suspect, whose name was not released, was being held Friday afternoon in police custody at a medical facility and could be charged later as an adult. Imani Langston, who describes herself as one of Sanchez’s best friends, said

Sanchez, a junior, was in the National Honor Society and engaged in school activities, schools Superintendent Elizabeth Feser said. Students were released from school early, and officials were offering counseling services. “We are obviously devastated by the loss of one of our students, Maren Sanchez,” Feser said at a news conference. “She was a 16-year-old junior – vibrant, very, very involved in Jonathan Law High School, an incredible contributor, someone who was loved and respected.” A cousin of Sanchez, Edward Kovac, said the family is shocked and devastated. He described her as a “bright light full of hopes and dreams” as he read from a family statement and said more needs to be done to ensure young people are protected from attacks at school. Students described an emotional, somewhat chaotic scene as police and paramedics swarmed the school.

DONETSK, Ukraine – As top Ukrainians spoke of imminent invasion and the West threatened the Kremlin with more sanctions, Moscow said Friday that pro-Russian separatists would not lay down their arms in eastern Ukraine until activists relinquish control over key sites in Kiev. The tough talk came as tensions heightened on the ground, with Russian fighter jets reported crossing into Ukrainian airspace and a team of unarmed foreign military observers detained by pro-Russian forces in Slovyansk, the heart of the separatist movement in the east. With last week’s Geneva agreement calling on all illegal armed groups to lay down their weapons and hand over occupied cities and facilities in tatters, both sides exchanged threats and warnings Friday. Accusing the West of plotting to control Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov declared that pro-Russia insurgents in the country’s east would only disarm and leave the territory they have occupied if the Ukrainian government clears out a protest camp in Kiev’s Independence Square, known as the Maidan, and evicts activists from other occupied facilities. “The West wants – and this is how it all began – to seize control of Ukraine because of their own political ambitions, not in the interests of the Ukrainian people,” Lavrov said.

Pro-Russia insurgents will disarm and vacate buildings “only if Kiev authorities get down to implementing the Geneva accords, clear out that shameful Maidan and liberate the buildings that have been illegally seized,” the Russian foreign minister said. Ukraine’s reaction was swift. “The world has not yet forgotten World War II, but Russia is already keen on starting World War III,” Ukraine’s acting prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, told a meeting of his Cabinet. At the United Nations, Ukraine’s deputy foreign minister, Danylo Lubkivsky, said he feared an imminent Russian invasion. “We have the information we are in danger,” Lubkivsky told reporters, saying Russian military maneuvers involving air and ground forces along the Ukraine border were a “very dangerous development.” “We are going to protect our motherland against any invasion,” Lubkivsky said. “We call on the Russians to stop this madness.” The heightened rhetoric came as U.S. officials reported that Russian fighter jets flew into Ukrainian airspace several times over the past 24 hours, in what one called a provocation. It wasn’t clear what the intent was, but the aircraft could have been testing Ukrainian radar or making a show of force, said the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk publicly about the issue.

ergreen Village Mobile Home Park as areas in this watershed known for flooding. In these areas, she recommended creating rain gardens, which can absorb water before it runs into storm sewers, or adding recreational wetlands. Doohaluk suggested DeKalb County update its ordinances related to stormwater quality and wetlands, while Kane County update its water quality ordinance. The underlying factor in the push for the changes would be to prepare the area for an eventual increase in development

and reduction in agricultural land. “The goal is to create a plan that isn’t just a plan for us to pat ourselves on the back, but that guides what we do managing our water quantity and quality in the future,” DeKalb County Planning and Zoning Administrator Paul Miller said. It’s a large undertaking, said Roger Steimel, a farmer from south of Cortland who has been involved in the planning process. “We realize we’ve got a lot to do,” Steimel said. “But we’re headed in the right direction.”

Deanna Doohaluk, a water resource planner with Chicago-based consultants Hey and Associates, said water quality samples taken in the watershed showed elevated levels of nitrogen and phosphorous, which she said are common in predominately agricultural areas. She also said there could be future concerns about decreased oxygen in area water-

ways. “Things are good, but we’re getting some inputs that we might need to control because as those things get higher, oxygen levels in creeks start to decrease, you can get algae blooms and fish kills and things like that,” Doohaluk said. Improvements could be made by adding things such as stormwater detention basins in the floodplain, planting vegetated strips near streams and removing structures from the flood plain, Doohaluk said.

GENDER

• CENTENARIANS Continued from page A1 Bell credits her descendants more than her marriages for her longevity. She has two children, eight grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren and 13 great-great-grandchildren. Socializing in general can be key to a long life, said Judith Hertz, the director of graduate nursing studies at Northern Illinois University who holds a Ph.D in gerontology. She explained it’s not necessarily about finding the one – or anyone – to marry, but developing meaningful bonds. “It’s not just about marriage, but having close relationships with people,” Hertz said. “Feeling connected to people and being close to people improves overall health.”

Being a woman didn’t hurt the current centenarian generation on their path to surpassing 100. Women account for 81 percent of the population 100 or older, according to the report. It’s not surprising, Hertz said, considering the life expectancy rates for men and women in general. A 2010 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that on average, men can expect to live to be 76 while women have a life expectancy around 81. “Women tend to be good survivors,” Hertz said. “They can pick up the pieces and move on no matter what life throws at them.” Hertz loosely attributed women’s likelihood to outlive their male counterparts to the trend among that generation for men to be the breadwinner and women the caretakers

Because the majority of centenarians are women and women were much less likely to have served during World War II, only 5 percent of centenarians are veterans. Veterans account for 23 percent of the population of those 65 and older, however. Among them is Tony Berg, 95, of DeKalb, who’s vying for a spot in the century club. Berg is a World War II veteran who landed in France on D-Day and served in an armored artillery unit. After his service, he became a bricklayer and ultimately re-

tired as the building supervisor for the city of Long Grove in 1983. “I would say the secret to a long life is to do something you like to do as far as work is concerned,” Berg said. “Also, you have to be active as much as possible and stay positive.” Whatever the trends continue to be in terms of who lives to be 100, Hertz said she’s preparing her nursing students to care for more centenarians. It’s a wise decision, the CDC report suggests, because people are living longer. Hertz did suggest that for those hoping to live to be 100, taking up gardening and drinking a glass of wine could help. As for Mavis Bell, she doesn’t really have time to worry about it in between meeting friends for lunch and cracking jokes. “Keep hoping,” she quipped.

When gov’t looks more like foe than friend The Cliven Bundy case in Nevada provides many insights into the state of our nation with respect to the relationship between the people and the government. The Bundys appear to be honorable American citizens without adequate legal counsel to help resolve a federal land issue about which they disagree with the Bureau of Land Management. Without question, they violated some of the innumerable laws and regulations that continue to entangle every aspect of American life. Their violations certainly could have been handled through a multitude of less brutal means than those employed by our federal government, which through the mouthpiece of Sen. Harry Reid emphasizes how important it is for the government to enforce its laws. It is quite interesting to see, however, that those same bureaucrats refuse to enforce some of our federal border-protection laws and other domestic policies with which they disagree. Perhaps Reid’s time could be better spent explaining why it is acceptable for the federal government to pick and choose which laws it wishes to enforce. The senator readily referred to the Bundys and their supporters as “domestic terrorists,” but the current administration is reticent about applying the same term to Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who admitted slaughtering more than a dozen people in 2009 at Fort Hood in Texas. What does this tell us about our government and its perceptions and alignments? The massive show of federal force in the Bundy case is frightening because it gives us a brief glimpse of the totalitarian regime that awaits a sleeping populace that does not take seriously its voting responsibilities and places in public office (and returns to public office) people who do not represent traditional American values. The fact that the ranchers were well armed and willing to literally fight for their rights probably tempered the enthu-

Thumbs-up: To adding to DeKalb’s park land. This week, the DeKalb Park District and DeKalb Sanitary District announced they had reached an agreement for the sanitary district to give four acres of property bordering Hopkins Park to the park district. In exchange, the sanitary district will receive a strip of park-owned land near Hollister Avenue that it will use in expanding its water treatment facilities. The trade-off seems to work well for both governments, and as park board President Phil Young said, “Whenever we get the opportunity to add more green area, we want to.” Thumbs-down: To the killing of Good Samaritans. On Thursday, Chicago pediatrician Dr. Jerry Umanos was one of three Americans killed when an Afghan security guard opened fire at a hospital in Kabul, Afghanistan. Umanos was dedicated to helping poor children, and his love for the war-torn country ultimately cost him his life. His wife, Jan Schuitema, said that the incident “should in no way negatively impact people’s feelings about the country or about the people in the country.” There is a nobility in having such capacity for forgiveness. Unfortunately, many people see terror crimes such as these as a compelling reason for the U.S. to continue to disengage from the country. Thumbs-up: To regional water planning. The DeKalb County Stormwater Management Committee has been working since 2009 on ways to alleviate water quality issues and flooding. Committee members released their initial findings Thursday, with the study slated to be finished in June. Committee members expect to look for grants to implement their suggestions, which could include adding stormwater detention basins in the flood plain, planting vegetated strips near streams and removing structures from the flood plain. It’s important work for the long-term health of our ecosystem. Thumbs-up: To resilience. The Boston Marathon fielded its second-largest group of runners in its history on Monday, as people paid tribute to those killed or injured in last year’s bombing of the race. Race organizers lifted the recent cap of 27,000 to make room for more than 5,000 runners who were on the course last year and couldn’t finish because of the explosions and for friends and relatives of the victims of the attack. Peter Riddle, who was at the finish line last year, said for runners, running is therapy in itself. “I did a lot of talking this year, but running has helped me resolve a lot of things in my head,” he said. Thumbs-up: To local nonprofits coming up with new ways to raise money. More than 40 area nonprofits are taking part in an online donation drive May 6 called Give Local DeKalb County. It’s part of a national event, Give Local America, marking 100 years of community foundations across the country. Donations must be at least $25 and people can choose which agency they want to support. The DeKalb County Community Foundation will match $20,000 in donations. The website to donate is givelocaldekalbcounty.org.

More trumped-up Keystone pipeline delays The Obama administration has found yet another way to keep from deciding the fate of the Keystone XL pipeline’s northern leg, from Canada to Cushing, Okla. This time, to hear the administration tell it (with a straight face, no less), a court case stands in the way. The State Department said Friday that because of a Nebraska court decision in February that invalidated part of the pipeline’s route, a final decision must be delayed. Conveniently, this means a final thumbs-up or thumbs-down almost certainly won’t come until after November’s midterm elections, because no resolution to the court fight is expected until late this year. It’s interesting that after the court ruling in February, the administration said the case wouldn’t have a bearing on its decision-making. But now State has decided that federal agencies wouldn’t be able to measure the impact of the pipeline until the “uncertainty” resulting from the litigation was resolved. So a project that’s been studied and dissected and debated for more than five years, and shown repeatedly to merit approval must wait even longer, just so President Barack Obama can score political points with environmentalists. Those environmentalists have thrown a wrench into this project. They’ve voiced concerns about the pipeline’s route, concerns that were addressed in revisions to the route. They’ve barked about the potential damage that could be inflicted to land and water by leaks in the pipeline, but moving oil in this manner is far safer than moving it via rail – a practice that has only increased as Keystone has languished. But of course, this is a blatantly political decision by Obama. He is bowing to people like Tom Steyer, the San Francisco billionaire who wants Keystone scuttled. Steyer has pledged to spend $100 million this year backing Democrats who feel as he does about climate change, and going after those who don’t. That seems to be the one certainty: Keystone will get rejected by this anti-fossil fuel administration. The only question is when. The (Oklahoma City) Oklahoman

Brewers honor Uecker with statue – in last row MILWAUKEE – There’s no mistaking what row Bob Uecker is in now – all the way in the back of the upper deck. On Friday, the Brewers unveiled a new statue of the longtime radio broadcaster in the last row of the upper deck behind home plate at Miller Park. It’s a nod to the popular 1980s Lite beer “All Stars” campaign that featured a cast of sports celebrities, including Uecker, who has served as the Brewers radio voice since 1971. “The Miller Lite years were one of the most unbelievable times I’ve ever had, working with Hall of Famers from their respective sports,” Uecker said. “To put together that series of commercials, to this day they were the best that were ever made.” One of the classic ads features Uecker anticipating a move to front-row seats only to wind up in the upper reaches of the ballpark. Fittingly, the statue’s location features a view partially blocked by a steel beam. Fans can take photos next to the statue for a fee that goes to charity. “When I first heard about the project, I turned it down,” Uecker said. “I was under the impression that they wanted me to work from up there.” Uecker played for the Milwaukee Braves in 1962 and 1963 and had a six-year major league career overall. He also starred in the TV show “Mr. Belvedere” and the movie “Major League.” “We’re all very, very lucky to have you here in Milwaukee as long as we have,” Brewers Hall of Famer Robin Yount said of Uecker. Yount attended a private unveiling of the statute, along with other former Brewers, including Rollie Fingers, Jim Gantner, Gorman Thomas and Ken Sanders. Current players and coaches, including Ryan Braun, also were on hand. Video messages to Uecker from celebrities that included Jason Bateman, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Kevin Costner were played on the stadium’s scoreboard. Brian Maughan designed the new bronze Uecker statue. The artist also created four statues that sit outside Miller Park honoring Hank Aaron, Bud Selig, Robin Yount and Uecker. – Wire report

DeKALB – The DeKalb School District 428 board unanimously approved Tom Kim as the new DeKalb High School athletic director at a special meeting Friday morning. Kim is the associate principal for curriculum and instruction at Grayslake Central High School, and was the school’s athletic director from 2008 to 2012 before moving into his new role.

Before Grayslake Central, Kim worked at Elgin High School, where he spent time as an assistant athletic director, as well as coach of the Maroons’ football and girls track and field teams. Kim was Elgin’s football coach from 2004 to 2007, where he had a career record of 11-25. Kim will replace Bryon Houy, who resigned in March after less than two years on the job. “There was a lot of interesting opportunities there in terms of what is potentially happening in that district and

what is already happening,” Kim said. “... I know DeKalb is very passionate about their athletics; they’re very passionate about what athletics does for the kids.” D e K a l b school board President TraTom Kim cy Williams said there were more than 60 applicants for the position. “Tom was firmly impressive all throughout the interview process, and it’s very clear that

we got a quality individual,” Williams said. “We’re very excited to welcome him here to DeKalb. I know he’s already been looking in the area to relocate to our community, and that speaks volumes. You want people to buy into your community and become a part of it. We know he’s anxious to get started, and we’re excited to have him.” Houy’s resignation will be effective June 30, and Kim’s official start date is July 1. However, Kim will be tasked with filling all of the school’s vacant coaching posi-

tions immediately. DeKalb has six varsity head coaching positions posted on the school’s website, including boys and girls basketball. The other open positions are volleyball, boys bowling, girls bowling and girls tennis. “Some of those were purposely not filled until he got here so that he would have the ability to have input on those decisions,” Williams said. “He will be starting right away, and there will be a transition period here, and I anticipate it going very smoothly.”

Knights knock off Barbs By TRAVIS ZUELLIG sports@daily-chronicle.com

was set early as the teams combined for 10 runs in the first inning. After Kaneland (8-8, 1-2 Northern Illinois Big 12 East) scored three in the top of the first, the Spartans put on an offensive display in the bottom half, driving Knights starter Anissa Becker from the game. The Spartans (4-8, 1-2 NI Big 12 East) mashed nine hits in the inning, including two apiece from the top two hitters in their order, Lyndsey Coddington and Brooke English. Willis summoned Courtney Davis to relieve Becker, and she stabilized the game in a hurry. After allowing a hit to English – the first batter she faced – Davis didn’t yield another in her remaining three-plus innings. She was replaced in the sixth inning.

DeKALB – In the DeKalb baseball team’s contest against Kaneland on Friday afternoon, there was a runner on base in 13 of the 14 half innings. The only difference was Kaneland was able to bring more home. The Knights scored all of their runs over the course of the first four innings, and Nate Hopkins, Nick Henne and Nick Stahl worked out of jams to escape with a 5-3 victory. The Barbs had multiple runners on base all game long but never could bring home more than one run a frame. “Bottom line is that we had chances and we weren’t able to capitalize enough. It’s nice to scratch one run here or one run there,” DeKalb coach Jake Howells said. “When you continually (put runners on), you have to scratch out more than just one run some of the time. We are just not getting that done.” Kaneland (10-3, 6-0 Northern Illinois Big 12 East) opened the scoring with two runs in the first inning. A sacrifice fly from Tyler Carlson scored Joe Laudont, and later, Nick Stratman brought in Hopkins with an RBI single. The Barbs (5-7, 0-6 NI Big 12 East) responded with a run in the bottom half of the inning. Five players reached base in the inning, but only Pat Aves came in to score on a fielder’s choice. Leading 2-1, Kaneland extended its lead with two more runs in the third. Laudont doubled, then a Tyler Carlson single brought him home. Hopkins kept the order moving with another single and Carlson’s run made the score 4-1. “We [had] some guys swinging the bat real well today. Anthony Holubecki was crushing the ball off the fence. Joe Laudont was the same way,” Kaneland coach Brian Aversa said. “Getting guys on is half

Knights rally for win Come back to win in a marathon against Spartans By JAY SCHWAB jschwab@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – There was bright sunshine in Sycamore, but it wasn’t sunstroke that had Sycamore softball coach Jill Carpenter confused about the game’s progress Friday afternoon against Kaneland. The Knights and Spartans played a twist-filled, argument-intensive game that was tough for even the participants to keep track of, especially without the scoreboard working. When all was sorted out, the Knights prevailed in a 10-9, comeback victory. “It was so long, at the end there, when it was the sixth, I thought it was the seventh,” Carpenter said. “That’s how long the game was, so I was (like), ‘All right, we’ve got one more inning to go.’ We had

I think it’s hard when there’s that many runners and that many conversations that need to take place and stuff like that, but you’ve got to be better.” Kaneland coach Brian Willis said the complexion of the game felt like slowpitch softball. “If you wanted to see the whole book of softball, today was the day to see it,” Willis said.

Series deserves to continue ST. LOUIS – It’s really a shame. The series is going to end soon. Too soon. It’s a best-of-seven series, after all, which leaves only two options after the Blackhawks’ thrilling 3-2 overtime win Friday against the St. Louis Blues. With the win, the Hawks seized a 3-2 series lead in the Western Conference quarterfinals. Option No. 1: The Hawks Game 6 win Game 6 on Sunday at the vs. St. Louis, United Center, and the series 2 p.m. Sunday, is over. Option No. 2: The Blues win NBC, 87.7-FM Game 6 on Sunday, and the series ends Tuesday in a winner-take-all Game 7 at the Scottrade Center. Either way, in less than 72 hours, the Hawks and Blues will shake hands and head their separate ways. One side will go home to ponder what could have been. The other side, strengthened by the win, will keep

VIEWS Tom Musick pushing toward the Stanley Cup. If it were up to me, I’d have the Hawks and Blues keep playing forever. Well, maybe not forever. That’s a long time to spend on hockey skates, and besides, the winner deserves a chance to take a shot at winning the Cup one of these months. I’d have them play for a really long time, though. I know that for certain. How about a best of 11? A best of 17? A best of 21? The exact number is negotiable, as long as it’s uneven and it’s more than seven. Because, holy hockey sticks, what a series this has been.

GAME 3: BULLS 100, WIZARDS 97 (WIZARDS LEAD SERIES 2-1)

NBA

Dunleavy leads Bulls to victory By JOSEPH WHITE

Game 4

The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The forgotten man in Games 1 and 2, Mike Dunleavy nearly had the best scoring game of his career. Dunleavy scored 35 points, one short of his career-high, and Jimmy Butler hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 24 seconds remaining as the Bulls held on Friday night for a 100-97 win over the Washington Wizards, trimming the deficit to 2-1 in their Eastern Conference first-round series. Dunleavy made a career-high eight 3-pointers on 10 attempts, and the Bulls went 12 for 24 beyond the arc. After Butler’s final 3, the teams traded fouls and free throws. Washington had a chance to tie when Taj Gibson missed a free throw with 3.1 seconds to play, but Trevor Ariza threw the ball out of bounds after grabbing the rebound in a miscommunication with teammate John Wall. Game 4 is Sunday in Washington. The Bulls are attempting to become only the fourth NBA team to win a seven-game series after losing the first two at home. Bradley Beal scored 13 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter for the Wizards. Wall had 23 points and seven assists. Dunleavy scored 20 points combined in the first two games, but he passed that total early in the second half. His four-point play in the AP photo third quarter – completed after he Bulls forward Taj Gibson dunks over Washington Wizards for- was clobbered by Beal outside the ward Nene in the first half of Game 3 of an opening-round playoff arc – helped steady the Bulls in a game in which neither team led by series Friday night in Washington.

BLACKHAWKS 3, BLUES 2 (OT)

Toews lifts Hawks over Blues in OT By R.B. FALLSTROM The Associated Press ST. LOUIS – Jonathan Toews scored on a breakaway at 7:36 of overtime Friday night, giving the Blackhawks a 3-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues and a 3-2 series lead. Marian Hossa and Ben Smith also scored for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who have won three in a row and can wrap up the firstround series at home Sunday. Four of the first five games in the series have gone to overtime. T.J. Oshie and Alex Pietrangelo scored for the Blues. All three of the Blues’ home games went to overtime and St. Louis won the first two. Toews got behind the St. Louis defense on the winner and threw a couple of fakes at Ryan Miller before slipping the puck past the goalie. Before Toews scored, the top offensive threats in the series had been neutralized in Game 5. Patrick Kane and Toews combined for one assist in regulation and the Blues’ Vladimir Tarasenko, who entered with an NHL-leading four goals in the playoffs, was

held to two shots. The first four goals came from players scoring for the first time in the series. Pietrangelo entered averaging more than 31 minutes in the series, most on either team, but has been a reluctant shooter with five shots in the first four games. His second career playoff goal came on a 2-on-1 break with Jaden Schwartz with the teams at 4-on-4 to tie it at 2 early in the third. David Backes returned for the Blues while Hawks defenseman Brent Seabrook finished a three-game suspension from the illegal hit that knocked the St. Louis captain woozy in Game 2. But the Blues didn’t make the most of that emotional lift early, getting their first scoring chance at about the 12-minute mark, totaling one shot on two early power plays and trailing 1-0 after the first. The Hawks started the scoring for the third straight game, capitalizing when Blues defenseman Roman Polak got caught pinching at the blue line. Bryan Bickell led a 2-on-1 break and Hossa tapped his own rebound into a wide open net at 16:11 of the first period.

at Washington, noon Sunday, ABC, AM-1000 double digits. Beal had reason to be frustrated. During a walkoff interview with CSN at halftime, the Wizards guard guaranteed Dunleavy wouldn’t score in the second half. The game was played at the Wizards’ faster pace, yet retained much of the physical play preferred by the Bulls. The chippiness evident in the games in Chicago resurfaced in the fourth quarter when Nene and Butler went forehead-to-forehead, with the Wizards forward grabbing Butler by the back of the neck and the side of the head. Both were assessed with techncials, and Nene was ejected with 8:28 to play. It had been six years since the Wizards hosted a playoff game, and, for a while, Wall appeared to embody the pent-up energy all by himself. He completely dusted Kirk Hinrich with a stutter move at the free-throw line and drove for a layup, capped a fast break with a windmill slam and performed a 360 move that was so breathtaking it almost didn’t matter that he missed the layup. Dunleavy was on target Friday night from the get-go. He slammed his hands on the floor in frustration after he didn’t get the ball from Butler for an open 3-pointer early in the first quarter, but his teammates had no trouble finding him after that.

Another overtime needed least one overtime. Each game has included more ups and Continued from page B1 downs than a trampoline-jumping convention.

Insider A closer look at the prep softball scene

SPOTLIGHT ON ... KAYLA KAUFFMAN Indian Creek, senior, catcher Kauffman had a solo homer in the Timberwolves’ loss to Earlville-Leland this week, and had two more Friday against Serena.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR DeKalb vs. Sycamore, 7 p.m. Friday at Northern Illinois’ Mary M. Bell Field The two rivals square off for the first time this season, under the lights at NIU. Sycamore at Genoa-Kingston, 4:30 p.m. Monday Could be a regional preview between two area schools. Both the Cogs and Spartans are assigned to the Class 3A Burlington Central Regional.

POWER RANKINGS 1. DeKalb (10-5, 1-2 NI Big 12 East) Barbs earned a big win over Kaneland on Thursday. 2. Genoa-Kingston (9-6, 2-3 BNC East) Mix of veterans and youngsters has fueled Cogs. 3. Kaneland (8-8, 1-2 NI Big 12 East) Knights had the Barbs down, but couldn’t close them out. 4. Sycamore (4-8, 1-2 NI Big 12 East) Spartans’ offensive attack is potent. 5. Indian Creek (4-7, 3-6 LTC) Timberwolves topped Hiawatha this week. 6. Hiawatha (4-5, 3-3 LTC) Hawks coach David Tamraz said his team’s bats are starting to come around.

SOFTBALL NOTEBOOK

Taylor setting the table for Barbs Sophomore is hitting about .360 in leadoff spot By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com DeKalb’s lineup is full of experienced talent. Sarah Friedlund, Morgan Newport, Jessica Townsend and Lindsey Costliow line the heart of the order. All have at least a year of varsity experience under their belts. However, the player setting the table for the Barbs softball team has been sophomore shortstop Abby Taylor. DeKalb coach Jeff Davis said Taylor is hitting about .380. She wasn’t in the leadoff spot to start the season, but Davis moved her there and she excelled. Taylor is able to slap the ball

now.”

Trio of pitchers stepping up for Hawks Hiawatha lost a lot of talent from last year’s regional championship team, including pitchers Ashley Tamraz and Dani Clark. So far this season, Hawks coach David Tamraz has divided up his innings between three pitchers – freshman Lexi Ross and sophomores Madison Marshall and Presley Fischer. Marshall got some varsity experience last season, but the other two are newcomers to the team. Tamraz mainly has used Ross Ryan Gaines for Shaw Media and Marshall as his starters, with DeKalb sophomore shortstop Abby Taylor is too late on the tag as Kaneland Fischer relieving Ross. baserunner Morgan Weber slides in to second base safely Thursday in Maple “It’s worked out real well. Lexi Park. The Barbs won, 3-1. I think is our fastest pitcher,” Tamraz said. “What I do is let her go around the order once, and from the left side of the plate, plate last season. then I bring in Presley, who has using her great speed to get on “She’s only been hitting a very fast windup and she’s very base. The thing is, she’s original- left-handed for about eight ly a right-handed hitter, Taylor months,” Davis said. “She’s pret- [slow to the plate]. They’re way converted to the other side of the ty important to our team right out in front of it.”

Northern Illinois Big 12 East race wide open I thought DeKalb was the heavy favorite in the Northern Illinois Big 12 East at the beginning of the season However, the early portion of the conference season might show how deep the league might end up being. In the Barbs’ conference opener at Morris on April 17, DeKalb suffered a 2-1 loss to what looks like an up-and-coming Redskins team.

VIEWS Steve Nitz It’s looking like the BarbsRedskins clash Tuesday at DeKalb will be huge when it comes to the league title race, especially after the Barbs’ 5-4 loss Friday at Yorkville.

BASEBALL: MORRIS 12, SYCAMORE 1 (5 INN.)

Spartans lose series finale By MARK JOHNSON mjohnson@shawmedia.com MORRIS – Morris spared itself the drama that was prevalent in the first two games of its Northern Illinois Big 12 East baseball series with Sycamore, winning Friday’s rubber match, 12-1, in five innings. Game 1 of the series featured a late Morris comeback, and Game 2 a thwarted Redskins rally. But all Sycamore (10-3, 4-2 NI Big 12 East) could do after Morris went ahead big Friday was thwart its bid for a shutout in the fifth. Morris (11-6, 3-2 NI Big 12 East) used small ball and the

long ball to score three first-inning runs. Austin Conrod walked, and Matt Bernickus singled with a grounder to the shortstop on a hit-and-run to start the inning. A Trevor Lines sacrifice and a Tom Cheshareck RBI groundout got one run home. Tim Smyk then plated both Bernickus and himself by hitting a home run to right field. “They just hit the ball today,” Sycamore coach Jason Cavanaugh said. “We just didn’t do a good job on the mound of pitching ahead and keeping the ball down. You’ve got to keep the ball down on a day like today, and you’ve really got to do a good job of chang-

ing speeds, and we didn’t do either of those things.” Sycamore scored its lone run in the fifth. Mark Skelley hit a one-out single, and after an error and a walk loaded the bases, Alex Swedberg hit into a fielder’s choice to bring home Skelley. Morris pitcher Cody Niewinski allowed no further damage, getting Alec Kozak to ground out to end the threat. “We were impatient as hitters,” Cavanaugh said. “Too many balls off the end of the bat. Lot of cue shots to the right side today when we needed to stay back and make a conscious effort to hit the ball to right field.”

“I thought for sure it would be Kaneland, us and Yorkville at the top,” DeKalb coach Jeff Davis said. “... You don’t know, you can’t predict it. It’s high school sports. You just hope to compete in every game and give your team the best chance to finish in first.” Kaneland was at the bottom of the conference entering Friday’s game against Sycamore, but the Spartans hung with the Barbs on

The rally was capped with a two-out, bases-loaded single by second baseman Morgan Weber that scored Morgan Sikon and Angie Morrow. Weber is turning into an-

other reliable run-producer for Kaneland to go with veteran sluggers Meg Cohrs (2 for 5, double, three RBIs) and Lanie Callaghan (2 for 4 with a double, walk and an RBI). “She came through in a big way for us,” Willis said of Weber. “As long as her and the other girls continue to hit like they’re hitting, we’re going to be fine.” While Kaneland used three pitchers, Becker, Davis and Morrow, who came on in the sixth, Carpenter stayed with

NORTHWESTERN FOOTBALL

BREWERS 5, CUBS 2

Historic day as NU players decide union

Garza and Brewers knock off Cubs

By JASON KEYSER and MICHAEL TARM The Associated Press EVANSTON – In a historic vote, Northwestern University football players cast secret ballots Friday on whether to form the nation’s first union for college athletes – a decision that could change the landscape of American amateur sports. “You got to give the people what they want!” one of the players shouted at reporters, who were kept away from the players as they entered a campus building to vote. Some waved and another showed off some dance moves. The results of the closely watched vote will not be known for some time. After two rounds of voting on this 19,000-student campus, the ballot boxes were sealed and will remain so for weeks, months, perhaps even years as the university challenges the effort to unionize the team. Still, some of those behind the push already were celebrating, saying that even if a union is voted down, the campaign has the power to change things. “We’re one step closer to a world where college athletes are not stuck with sports-related medical bills, do not lose their scholarships when they are injured, are not subject to unnecessary brain trauma and are given better opportunities to complete their degree,” said former Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter, who helped lead the effort with the help of the United Steelworkers. The full National Labor Relations Board has agreed to hear the Northwestern’s appeal of a regional director’s March ruling that the players are university employees and thus can unionize. Ballots will

Northwestern football players cast secret ballots in an on-campus hall adjacent to their home stadium on whether to form the nation’s first union for college athletes. remain impounded until that process is finished, and perhaps until after any court fight that might follow a decision. Supporters say a union would help athletes obtain better compensation, medical care for injuries and other benefits. One day before the vote, the NCAA endorsed a plan that would give big schools like Northwestern much more autonomy to address such issues for its athletes. None of the players participating in the voting stopped to talk with reporters, but the excitement of some was evident as they waved or thrust their arms into the air in view of TV news cameras. Sophomore Michael Odom, 20, said he quit the team a couple months ago because the demands of playing football were detracting from his studies for a journalism degree. Although he wasn’t eligible to vote, he

called a union “long overdue” and had heard from his former teammates they felt pressured to vote against it. “I don’t know if intimidation is the word I’d use. I think that’s a little strong. I know a lot of my teammates have been influenced by former players as well as coaches and officials at the university,” Odom said, adding that parents got emails from university officials urging them to press their children to vote no. “It seems like things are kind of leaning toward ‘no,’ ” he said of the overall vote. “I think a lot of them have been successfully talked out of voting yes.” Last month’s decision by NLRB’s regional director sent shockwaves through college sports, prompting criticism from the NCAA, Northwestern and athletic departments nationwide.

The Associated Press MILWAUKEE – Matt Garza pitched seven strong innings and Lyle Overbay hit his first homer with Milwaukee as the Brewers defeated the Cubs, 5-2, Friday night. Carlos Gomez and Ryan Braun each had three hits and a stolen base for the Brewers, who have a Major League best 17-6 record. Garza (1-2), who pitched part of last season with the Cubs, retired the Cubs in order in four of the first six innings. He gave up two runs and four hits while striking out seven and walking one. Francisco Rodriguez pitched a scoreless inning to pick up his 10th save in 10 chances. Cubs starter Carlos Villanueva (1-5) gave up five runs and 11 hits in five innings. The Brewers when Cubs left fielder Junior Lake appeared set to make a routine catch of Scooter Gennett’s line drive but the ball sailed

at Milwaukee, 6:10 p.m. today, WGN, AM-720 past Lake’s glove and rolled to the fence, allowing Gomez to score. Braun’s single drove in Gennett, who scored as Lake airmailed a throw to the plate, giving the Brewers a 2-0 lead. The Cubs Matt Garza cut the lead to 2-1 in the third on Emilio Bonifacio’s run-scoring single. The Brewers extended their lead to two runs again in the bottom half of the inning. With Gomez on first, Braun hit a ground ball deep in the hole at short. Cubs’ shortstop Starlin Castro made a strong throw and umpires initially ruled Braun out at first. After a delay of

two minutes and 20 seconds, Braun was ruled safe. Jonathan Lucroy followed with a single to score Gomez. Overbay led off the fourth a homer, giving the Brewers a 4-1 lead. Aramis Ramirez’s sacrifice fly in the fifth extended the lead to 5-1. Ryan Sweeney’s groundout plated a run for the Cubs in the seventh. Notes: Rodriguez tied Robb Nen for 18th place with his 314th career save. ... Brewers manager Ron Roenicke applauded Major League Baseball’s attempt to eliminate the confusion that has surrounded the “transfer” rule this season by returning to the previous interpretation for when a fielder loses possession of a ball while trying to shift it from his glove to his hand. “I like what they did. I think it makes sense and it is the right way,” Roenicke said. ... Cubs’ reliever Neil Ramirez made his Major League debut. ... The Brewers’ Marco Estrada (1-1) will face the Cubs’ Travis Wood (1-2) on Saturday.

FAMILY TIME | Some shoe-shopping tips for parents

Tip of the week When it comes to the health of your children, you do everything you can to help them grow up healthy and strong. But are you aware of the important role foot health plays in a child’s overall development? “Every parent knows the frustration of trying to keep up with children who grow quickly, and that rapid pace of growth can mean children need new shoes and socks every few months,” says Dr. Matthew G. Garoufalis, a podiatrist and past president of the

American Podiatric Medical Association. “With warm weather on the way, it’s a great time for parents to take a look at their children’s shoes to ensure they’re wearing footwear that will serve them well through the active days of summer.” Ill-fitting footwear can irritate kids’ feet and aggravate existing conditions caused by injury, heredity, deformity or illness. The APMA offers parents guidance for keeping kids in shoes that properly fit and protect their feet: When shopping for shoes • Take the child with you and have him or her try on the shoes. Every shoe fits differently, so even if you’re buying your child’s correct size, the shoe still may not be comfortable. Have the child try on footwear with the socks or tights you expect will be worn with the shoes. • Always measure a child’s foot before buying new shoes. Children’s feet grow so quickly, their shoe size can literally change from month to month. • Shop late in the afternoon when feet are largest, and make sure to fit

8IN UNIFORM Sommer enlists in the Army Alexandra H. Sommer has joined the United States Army under the Delayed Entry Program, which gives young men and women the opportunity to delay entering active duty for up to one year. The enlistment gives the new soldier the option to learn a new skill, travel and become eligible to receive as much as $53,028 toward a college education through the Montgomery GI Bill. For those who qualify, new soldiers can earn up to $65,000 for student loan repayment. After completion of basic military training, soldiers receive advanced individual training in their career job specialty. Sommer will report to Fort Jackson, S.C., for basic training in July. Sommer is the daughter of Ginger and John Sommer of DeKalb.

Poulsen graduates from basic training Air Force Airman Erik Poulsen graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, San Antonio, Texas. The airman completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills. Airmen who complete basic training earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force. Poulsen is the son of Henrik and stepson of Victoria Poulsen of Fairfield, Calif., and the grandson of Inge and Jorgen Poulsen of Sandwich.

8PRAIRIE FLOWERS A passing of the torch thank-you To the Editor: It is with my utmost respect and deepest appreciation for a very rewarding and memorable Illinois Elementary School Association tournament manager experience that I express my thanks as I pass that torch on to very capable and dedicated members of the DeKalb Wrestling Family and the DeKalb Wrestling Club. I joined this DeKalb wrestling family as a coach in 1968 and was rewarded by working next to hard-working and dedicated professionals, athletes and a huge family of abounding strong-willed personalities. I was immersed in the real meaning of Pride promoted in the DeKalb Wrestling Program. In 1972, I was co-founder of the Illinois Kid Wrestling Federation and was its president and tournament manager bringing their state tournament to DeKalb for four years, two at DeKalb High School, and four at the Northern Illinois University Field House. This experience revealed to me not only the pride, but the dedication of our DeKalb wrestling family through observing its volunteers. In 1986, DeKalb Wrestling joined the IESA, and in 1992, brought its state tournament to the NIU Field House, where I remained tournament manager any time it was held in DeKalb from then to this year. During that time, the venue has changed to the NIU Convocation Center in recent years. This impressive building brought with it many new challenges. But not to my surprise, once again, our dedicated family of 150-plus volunteers stepped forward to make sure that DeKalb put on a tournament that wrestlers, parents, officials, coaches and spectators would be proud of and enjoy, ensuring this competition being held here for at least four more years. The volunteers are too numerous to name individually, but then again they would not expect to be mentioned. They know who they are and the program is what is important to

them. The entire wrestling family can take pride in their volunteerism and talents that support not only our wrestling program, but all of our tournaments and the DeKalb community in general. I would be remiss if I did not take the time to mention my gratitude for Steve Endsley, executive director of the IESA, and his support, friendship, thoughtfulness and believing in DeKalb all these years and for the years to come. To Steve and the entire DeKalb wrestling family, I extend a heartfelt thank-you. Arch Richoz Retiring IESA State Wrestling Tournament manager

Celebrating DeKalb County volunteers To the Editor: April is National Volunteer Month, and to that end, Altrusa International of DeKalb-Sycamore congratulates residents of DeKalb County on their willingness to give so much time and energies for the volunteering they do. The list of organizations in DeKalb County that engage in volunteer activities numbers in the hundreds and literally goes from A to Z, ranging from those organized on an international level to those that are strictly local in nature to individuals who serve as volunteers in churches, government, education and beyond. In addition, there are those who cannot volunteer with time, but are incredibly generous with other resources, chief among them dollars and cents. It has been our experience that the people of DeKalb County are always there in one fashion or another for each other. We are convinced that if it were possible to add up all the hours and all the funds contributed each year, it would total into the millions. Thank you to each and every one of you for your generosity of spirit. Members of DeKalb-Sycamore Altrusa

the shoe to the larger foot. Everyone’s feet swell by the end of the day, and no one has feet that are exactly the same size. One will always be slightly larger. • Never buy shoes that are too large or need a “break-in” period. Shoes should be comfortable immediately. “Buying shoes for kids isn’t like buying a too-large coat that you know they’ll grow into,” Garoufalis says. “Shoes that are too big can irritate a child’s feet, and even lead to tripping or injury.” • Let kids have a say – within reason. “Of course parents will have to guide children toward good choices,” Garoufalis says. “But allowing kids to have a say in the shoe-buying process can help promote healthy foot habits down the road.” Once your child takes the new shoes home, keep watch to ensure the shoes stay comfortable and in good shape. Examine the child’s feet at the end of the day for signs of irritation. If your child always wants to remove one or both of the shoes, it may mean the shoes are uncomfortable. – Brandpoint

Book report “Professor Whiskerton Presents Steampunk ABC,” by Lisa Falkenstern Ages: 3 to 7 Pages: 32 Synopsis: In “Professor Whiskerton Presents Steampunk ABC,” two mice dressed in Victorian clothing use gadgets and found objects – each starting with a different letter of the alphabet – to build a fantastic

steampunk surprise. A is for anvil; M is for monkey wrench; P is for periscope. Steampunk-inspired elements abound on every page as the mice make use of ordinary household items – spoons, a sardine tin, life-size toothbrushes – to create the letters and, ultimately, the book’s surprise at the end. Young readers will delight in the mice characters and their fantastical creations, while parents will enjoy the celebration of steampunk – making old things new again, the retro/futuristic details and the emphasis on creativity. With standout illustrations that are both charming and intricate, children and parents alike will want to pore over this story again and again. – Two Lions

Peterson achieves Eagle Scout rank Jordan Peterson, a member of BSA Troop 2810 chartered at Salem Lutheran Church and a Sycamore High School senior, was recently awarded the Eagle Rank, the highest award achievable in Boy Scouts. He is the son of Tom and Maureen Peterson of Sycamore. Peterson began his scouting journey the summer before first grade with Cub Scout Pack 102 chartered by Southeast Elementary School. He earned all five Cub Scout ranks and the Arrow of Light, the highest award given in Cub Scouts. He then crossed over and continued with Boy Scouts Troop 2, and later transferred to Troop 2810. Peterson attended numerous campouts and summer camps, held various leadership positions including assistant senior patrol leader, historian, chaplain and quartermaster. His favorite experience in scouting was camping in a shelter he built himself using only sticks and leaves found in the area as a requirement for the Wilderness Survival Merit Badge. During his trail to Eagle, Peterson earned a total of 37 Merit badges, with his favorite badges being Ro-

Jordan Peterson botics, Lifesaving and Art. He also enjoyed many high adventure experiences including trips to Philmont Scout Ranch, two Bahama scuba-diving trips with Blackbeard Cruises, Jamboree, Boundary Waters, and a 50-mile trek in the back country in Alaska. After earning the required 21 merit badges for Eagle rank, a scout

can earn additional Eagle Palms with five additional merit badges for each Palm. After receiving the Eagle rank, Peterson has earned the Bronze Eagle Palm. He is working on his Silver Eagle Palm, and hopes to complete all requirements for a Gold Eagle Palms this summer. His Eagle project, renovating the south side of the stone cross monument at Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Sycamore, focused on improving the area around the stone cross grave marker for a former priest of St. Mary’s Church. This project involved re-leveling the ground around the stone cross, outlining and constructing a red stone gravel path with a border, installing a granite bench, and planting flowers and plants around the path and bench. Peterson will hold his formal Eagle Ceremony later this year. He plans to remain active in scouting, mainly with Venture Crew 101. His future plans include earning his Emergency Medical Technician certificate at Kishwaukee College and attending Knox College in Galesburg to study medicine.

From garden gates to dinner plates Do you wish to sell your jams, jellies and baked goods at an Illinois Farmers’ Market? If so, don’t miss this program. A newer Illinois law called the Cottage Food Operation Act of 2011 allows certain low-risk foods to be sold at Illinois Farmers Markets. These foods can be prepared in the private home without the expense of a certified commercial kitchen. Operating a business under the Cottage Food Operation Act is not for everyone. However, for some creative, energetic people with an entrepreneurial spirit, it may be just the opportunity needed to get a business off the ground and running. The main advantage of this law is that it allows food entrepreneurs to sell their goods directly to consumers without significant start-up capital. The program will discuss the process

of what you need to do to get started, including: 1. A review of the Cottage Food Operation Act. 2. An explanation of the specific certifications and requirements set forth by the Illinois Department of Public Health. 3. An illustrated talk and food demonstration on how to safely prepare jams and jellies for sale to the public. 4. A discussion of the preparation of homemade baked products under this law. 5. A discussion of how to get your kitchen ready for this endeavor, including home kitchen safety and sanitation practices. From Garden Gates to Dinner Plates workshop will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. May 9 at the DeKalb County Extension office, 1350 W. Prairie Drive, Sycamore. The program cost is $5 per person and registration is preferred by May 7. Register online at http://web.extension.illinois.edu/bdo or call the DeKalb County Extension office at 815-758-8194.

Facebook drive raises 1,560 pounds of food By DOUG OLESON doleson@shawmedia.com GENOA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Denise Hornbeck couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sleep one night, trying to think of ways to help the food bank in Hampshire, where she lives. She got on Facebook and started what she called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;$20 food drive,â&#x20AC;? asking other members of the Wildcats Youth Football League booster club to donate $20 worth of a single item. Sixty-five families responded, and were assigned products like Pop-Tarts, Ritz crackers, canned nuts or flour to donate. That way, she explained, she knew the food pantry would receive a variety of needed items. When a friend told Crystal Grismer of Genoa about the drive, she decided to do the same thing for the Genoa-Kingston Ministerial Food Pantry,

inside Faith United Methodist Church in Genoa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Denise came up with the idea and I ran with it,â&#x20AC;? Grismer said. Since 2008, Grismer has run Crystalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Classifieds, a Facebook group where members list sales and community events within 30 miles of Genoa. She put out a request to the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2,800 members asking for help with a $20 food drive, hoping 25 families would respond. The response was overwhelming. In three weeks, 88 families spent $1,760 on 1,373 items for the food pantry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is amazing,â&#x20AC;? she said. When Grismer delivered the donations to the food pantry on April 17, her Chevy Surburban was so weighed down she had it weighed at a local grain elevator. It weighed 7,240 pounds full; she had it weighed again after

dropping off the items and found it 1,560 pounds lighter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is wonderful,â&#x20AC;? said Judy Thompson, who oversees the food pantry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of our people are going to be very happy.â&#x20AC;? All the volunteers helping with the delivery agreed they were impressed that in a time of need a small community can come together. Thompson said food is distributed to Genoa and Kingston families from 9 to 11 a.m. on the third Monday of the month. The number of recipients, she said, fluctuates from 45 to as many as 130. For more information, call 815-7845989. Grismer plans to hold the same fundraiser twice a year, in April and October. In the future, she will coordinate with Thompson to address the pantryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s specific needs, she said.

Sugar Grove men land deal with ABC’s sharks By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com SUGAR GROVE – Kevin Ullery and Stan Krozel know what it’s like to mingle with sharks – metaphorical sharks, that is. The Sugar Grove residents got a chance in September to pitch their company Fun Time Express to a group of investors on ABC’s Friday primetime program “Shark Tank.” Watching themselves get a deal with QVC-TV personality Lori Greiner and entrepreneur Kevin O’Leary on the April 11 broadcast was a surreal moment, they said, noting they are fans of the show. The process to appear on “Shark Tank” began last spring, when Krozel submitted an email to the show without Ullery’s knowledge, the couple of 19 years said.

Olympic medalist to speak at Y awards Bonnie Blair will be the keynote speaker at the Kishwaukee Family YMCA’s first Community Awards Dinner Passion for Community event, scheduled at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Faranda’s Banquet and Conference Center in DeKalb. The event will raise funds for key Y programs and initiatives while honoring those making a difference in the community. Blair is one of the most decorated athletes in Olympic History, with five Olympic gold medals and one bronze medal for speed skating. Throughout the evening, three awards will be presented recognizing an outstanding youth, individual community leader, and business/ organization that have made a significant contribution to

the community in 2013. DeKalb County residents and businesses submitted award nominations. “We invite the entire community to join us for an unforgettable evening in celebration of our community, the Y and those who invest in our future,” Rob Wilkinson, CEO of Kishwaukee Family YMCA, said in a news release. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are still available. Businesses or individuals interested in sponsoring the event should contact Debbie Madeley at 815-7569577, ext. 20, or dmadeley@ kishymca.org. Tickets cost $75 and can be purchased online at www. kishymca.org or in person at the Y, 2500 W. Bethany Road in Sycamore.

Greiner, however, was willing to make an offer. “It’s like a feel-good, nice business to have,” she said. Ullery agreed with her, recalling his initial reaction to Krozel’s proposal for Fun Time Express. “There was such a level of joy associated with it,” Ullery said on the show. The offer Krozel and Ullery accepted from Greiner and O’Leary essentially was a $125,000 loan. The sharks will receive 20 percent equity in the company after the debt is repaid. Krozel and Ullery said the deal still is in the due diligence process. Ullery said the once-ina-lifetime experience is his proudest moment as a couple since he and Krozel started the business together and both applied their skills to make the “Shark Tank” opportunity happen.

Sycamore Rotary Club seeks support for youth exchanges

On April 19, 14 Sycamore Lion Club members, 12 additional family members and six volunteers from Alpha Phi Omega at Northern Illinois University cleaned up a 3-mile section of the Great Western Trail and Route 64. This year, the Club filled 30 55-gallon trash bags. This was the 20th time the Lions Club has done this annual clean-up.

Goodwill Move Out donation drive a success

Rotary Youth Exchange is the opportunity of a lifetime for the more than 8,000 students who participate each year. The Sycamore Rotary Club has a proud tradition of hosting and sending students each year. Rotary Youth Exchange is a study-abroad opportunity for young people who spend anywhere from a few weeks to a full year as an international student hosted by local Rotary clubs. Exchanges are for people ages 15 to 19 who have demonstrated leadership in their school and community, are flexible and willing to try new things, are open to cultural differences and can serve as an ambassador for their own country, city and school. Costs vary from country to country. Local Rotary clubs generously host students and provide room and board with a host family and a small monthly stipend. Participants are generally responsible for trip airfare, insurance, travel arrangements, documents (such as passports and visas) and spending money, additional travel within the country, and tour fees from optional packages. In the past two years, the Sycamore Rotary Club has worked on a mutual exchange program with a sister club in Argentina that has been widely praised for its convenience and innovation. Four students from Sycamore High have participated and there are plans to expand that to fit the interest level as time goes on.

Two students from Argentina come to Sycamore during their summer break (January and February) and are hosted by the two families who have Sycamore students going to Argentina during our summer break. Contact the Sycamore Rotary Club to learn about both the long-term (full year) and shortterm (eight-week) programs offered, and the specific application process required. Because the selection and orientation process can be lengthy, interested students need to apply before October each year. Hosting an exchange student can be a rewarding experience, providing an international experience without leaving home. Host families provide room and board and share their lives with exchange students, involving them in family, community and cultural activities for three or four months during the student’s visit. The Sycamore club is looking for families who may be interested in hosting a student this coming school year. Families need to express interest before May 14. To learn more, contact Sycamore Rotary Club President Jeff Keicher at 815-895-1945 or jeff.keicher.quhx@statefarm.com. The Sycamore Rotary Club meets at noon Wednesdays at Blumen Gardens in Sycamore; additional information about the club is available at www.sycamorerotary.org or on Facebook.

Goodwill Industries of Northern Illinois and Northern Illinois University teamed up last year to collect more than 15,000 pounds of donations for Goodwill from two collection drives. These donations funded 2,490 hours of training to enhance the lives of people with barriers in this community. NIU students and faculty collected gently used clothing and other unwanted items for the “Give and Go: Move Out 2013” campaign in the spring and the “Goodwill, Not Landfill!” drive in the winter. The two are now planning the “Give and Go: Move Out 2014” donation drive to coincide with the end of the spring term and students packing up for summer break. Between Tuesday and May 10, NIU will work with Goodwill to set out special donation bins at residence halls for use by students cleaning out their rooms.

Nutrition and Wellness educator Marilyn Csernus to explore this healthy way of eating. Participants will view a cooking demonstration, taste healthy recipes and learn how to focus their food choices to consume more fruits, vegetables, seafood and healthy fats which are the basis of the Mediterranean Diet. The Celebrating Mediterranean Diet Awareness workshop will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. May 13 at the DeKalb County Extension office, 1350 W. Prairie Drive, Sycamore.

TODAY – Follow your instincts to a prosperous future. Plan a trip or redevelop an old goal or creative endeavor. Those you encounter will be glad to lend a helping hand. You are at a crossroads and must prepare for new beginnings. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – If you are looking to move forward in your career, find out everything you can about your chosen field. Social media, libraries or even your workplace will help you prepare your strategy. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Someone has been singing your praises. You must be ready to take action and prove you are worthy. The window of opportunity for positive change will be small. Take the plunge. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Your creative juices are flowing. Keep yourself active mentally and physically, and get the most out of your day. Take on new challenges and activities in order to feel motivated. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Variety is the spice of life. Get involved in as many activities and hobbies as you can. The new experiences and friends involved will keep you stimulated and interested. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Make sure you and the other party are compatible before getting involved in a partnership. Rather than act impulsively, spend time delegating work and discovering commonalities. Better to be safe than sorry. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – A loved one could use a little nurturing. If you’re sensitive to the feelings of others, you will gain respect and a valuable ally. Show compassion to everyone. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – You can smooth out business relationships by learning more about your colleagues. Be friendly and approachable, but keep your personal information out of the conversation.

You will be admired for the positive personal changes you undertake. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Unsettling confrontations can be expected. Complete as much of your work as possible before someone challenges you or goads you into an argument. You can avoid trouble if you keep a low profile. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Some positive changes are heading your way. An old friend is likely to surface. A phone call or email exchange with this person will remind you of the good times you had together. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Take decisive action at all costs today. You have everything you need, but your dreams will not come true until you have put your plans in motion. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Consider minor changes to your home or lifestyle. Look at your options before making a purchase. Once you have investigated the possibilities, you will make an ideal choice.

Funeral plants and flowers should be shared Dear Abby: My father passed away recently. Flowers and plants were sent to the funeral home. After the funeral Mass, the flowers were sent to the cemetery for the gravesite services. Afterward, I was asked to go to the funeral home to pick them up. When I arrived, I saw my sister-in-law taking the plant her employer had sent into her car. She said it was HER plant. The next day, my other sister-in-law went to my mother’s house to retrieve the plant HER company had sent. Abby, I have never heard of this. I thought that because the flowers and plants had been sent to my mother, it should be up to her to decide whether or not she wants to distribute them. After all, she’s the one suffering the greatest loss. What is the proper procedure for plants to be distributed after a funeral? – Christine in Missouri Dear Christine: The plants should be shared. Your mother is not the only person who is grieving. Your sisters-inlaw are married to the sons of the deceased, so they should have the plants their employers sent to the funeral. When there are more flowers and plants than the family can enjoy, people often have them delivered to

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips nursing homes or homes for the elderly or disabled, where they can lend a burst of color and good cheer. P.S. Thank-yous to the senders should be sent by your sisters-in-law for the plants they took. Dear Abby: It seems strange to write to you, but I’d like to share this story about how small acts of kindness can multiply. On a dark, miserable afternoon, I was out grocery shopping. The woman in line in front of me had two small children and two full carts of groceries. When all her bags were loaded, she began frantically searching in her purse for her car keys. When she couldn’t find them, she realized that, in her haste, she had locked them inside her car. I asked if I could drive her home to get a spare key and she agreed. I helped her into her house with her bags of groceries, then drove them all back to the store for her car. “How can I ever thank you?” she asked. My reply was, “No thanks are needed; just pass it on.” Two weeks later, I was at

a party when a couple walked into the living room and the woman excitedly said, “There she is!” It was the woman from the market. She rushed over and proceeded to tell everyone how we met. Then she said she’d had her chance to “pass it on.” I asked what she told the person who had thanked HER, and she said, “I said what you did, ‘No thanks are needed – pass it on!’” Small kindnesses bring big rewards. If anyone has been the recipient of an act of kindness, remember to pass it on. It’s the Golden Rule. Thanks, Dear Abby – you “pass on” kindness with each column you write. – Living The Golden Rule in Washington Dear Living The Golden Rule: I am a firm believer in passing it on and have long shared that philosophy with friends. However, regardless of how long you preach, the best sermon is a good example. Dear Abby: I have worked in a pharmacy for 30 years, and every summer it’s the same story. People forget their medication and leave it at home. Why do people not realize that their meds should be one of the FIRST things they pack? Yes, we can call their pharmacist back home to get a transfer, but if the prescrip-

tion was just filled, their insurance will not go through, or they’ll have to wait while we call for a vacation override. Please, people – remember your medications, and if you don’t plan on spending a while sitting around our pharmacy waiting for us to call your hometown pharmacy, and possibly your insurance company, then don’t get angry at us when it takes longer than the 15 minutes you expected. I love my job. But I’m beginning to dread irresponsible, crabby tourists who know they need their blood pressure meds every day and expect us to drop whatever we’re doing to take care of them. – Phrustrated Pharmacist in Montana Dear Pharmacist: I sympathize with your “phrustration,” so I’m printing your heartfelt letter, hoping it will help you to lower YOUR blood pressure. I don’t think the people you describe are irresponsible as much as they may be disorganized. The way I have solved this problem is to keep multiple copies of a printed list of items I must have when I travel. As I pack, I check them off my list – and before I close my travel bag, I double-check to make sure nothing has been forgotten. Perhaps oth-

ers will find this helpful. Dear Abby: What’s up with penmanship these days? A few years ago, my mother gave me some old letters written by my grandfather to my grandmother. Some of them are treasures because the written words are not only loving and endearing, but the penmanship is beautiful. The script writings are actually examples of “art” in this modern age. I work at a bank, Abby, and many of the signatures I see every day are illegible. Is written communication becoming obsolete? With the electronic age and schools going paperless, will penmanship become unnecessary? – Mary in Huntsville, Ala. Dear Mary: Years ago, penmanship was routinely taught in the public schools, and students spent nearly an hour a day practicing how to write legibly. Today, I am told that 10 minutes is devoted to teaching students to PRINT. If the emails I receive are any indication, capitalization and punctuation are also being jettisoned. And if the electric grid ever goes down and battery power runs out, we’ll have to start over with stone tablets and chisels.

Eating fish in place of ret meat is still good advice Dear Dr. K: Does eating fish help prevent prostate cancer? Dear Reader: You’ve certainly heard me encourage readers to eat plenty of fish, particularly fatty fish such as salmon and mackerel. That’s because many good studies have found that people who eat fish frequently have lower rates of many serious diseases, including heart disease and several types of cancer. A recently published study from the Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial (PCPT) was described in the media as coming to the opposite conclusion. I don’t agree, but to explain why, I first need to talk about the substances in fish that are thought to be

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff beneficial for humans. Fish contain high levels of two omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, which have been shown to reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes. EPA and DHA also calm inflammation – and inflammation contributes to the development and progression of prostate cancer. That’s why researchers were interested in learning whether these fatty acids might help prevent prostate cancer. The PCPT measured levels

of various fatty acids in the blood of 3,461 men, 1,658 of whom developed prostate cancer during the PCPT study. They found that men with the highest levels of DHA were 2.5 times more likely to develop aggressive, high-grade prostate cancer over a seven-year period compared with men who had the lowest levels of DHA. What could explain these results? It’s not clear. But the PCPT did not require men to undergo prostate biopsies before enrolling in the study. So it’s possible that some of the participants already had high-grade cancer before they entered the trial. Most important, this was not a study of fish consump-

tion at all. It was a study of the levels of certain nutrients in the blood, including omega-3 fatty acids such as DHA. These omega-3s could have come from supplements, from food other than fish, or from fish itself. It’s also important to put the results in perspective. The researchers analyzed blood samples from the 1,658 men who developed prostate cancer during the PCPT study. But only 125 of these men – about 8 percent of the total – developed high-grade tumors. The vast majority of men developed low-grade cancer, and DHA levels had no relationship to low-grade cancer. So while high levels

of DHA may increase risk of developing high-grade cancer, the actual risk is still low. Many more men die of heart disease than from prostate cancer. Eating fatty fish prepared healthfully (poached, broiled or grilled) in place of red meat is a good way to protect your heart. So if you eat fish, do it for your heart and your overall health. At this time, there is no evidence that fish prevents prostate cancer. But this new study does not say, as was reported by some in the media, that eating fish increases the risk of prostate cancer.
