general fund and the city’s focus to have reserves equal 25 percent of expenditures. Based on projections, the general fund balance at the end of next fiscal year will be about $5.2 million, around 15 percent of expenditures and $600,000 less than what the fund balance is projected to be at the end of the current fiscal year. In her budget memo, City

Manager Anne Marie Gaura listed several strains on the city’s general fund, including its use to support other funds, pension costs and debt. The general fund also pays for city personnel, an area that will see several changes if alderman follow recommendations from Gaura to restructure departments, add several positions, cut others and examining the city’s use of con-

tractual services. Rey said aldermen have been anticipating the changes. “I think we need to be very judicious with organizational changes so they’re in the spirit of efficiency and effectiveness,” Rey said. According to her budget memo, Gaura would like to add a management analyst position to her office. The management analyst would

WASHINGTON – The government has failed to inspect thousands of oil and gas wells it considers potentially high risks for water contamination and other environmental damage, congressional investigators say. The report, obtained by The Associated Press before its public release, highlights substantial gaps in oversight by the agency that manages oil and gas development on federal and Indian lands. Investigators said weak control by the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management resulted from policies based on outdated science and from incomplete monitoring data. The findings from the Government Accountability Office come amid an energy boom in the country and the increasing use of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. That process involves pumping huge volumes of water, sand and chemicals underground to split open rocks to allow oil and gas to flow. It has produced major economic benefits, but also raised fears that the chemicals could spread to water supplies. The audit also said the BLM did not coordinate effectively with state regulators in New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma and Utah. The bureau has become a symbol of federal overreach to industry groups opposed to government regulations related to oil and gas drilling. Environmental groups say the Obama administration needs to do more to guard against environmental damage. In the coming months, the administration is expected to issue rules on fracking and methane gas emissions. The report said the agency “cannot accurately and efficiently identify whether federal and Indian resources are properly protected or that federal and Indian resources are at risk of being extracted without agency approval.” In response to the report, Tommy

The ASSOCIATED PRESS MILWAUKEE – Former Wisconsin Gov. Patrick Lucey, a hard-nosed Democratic politician who later became the U.S. ambassador to Mexico, has died. He was 96. Lucey, who also ran for vice president of the United States as an independent in 1980, died Saturday night at the Milwaukee Catholic Home after a brief Illness, said his son, Paul Lucey, of Milwaukee. He said funeral arrangements are pending. “Governor Lucey was a dedicated public servant who loved Wisconsin,” Republican Gov. Scott Walker said in a statement. He called it “a particular joy” to be with him last summer for the 40th anniversary of the Kikkoman Foods Inc. soy sauce plant in Fontana. Patrick Lucey was elected governor in 1970 and won re-election in 1974, but left midway through his second term to serve as then-President Jimmy Carter’s ambassador to Mexico. In Wisconsin, he will perhaps be remembered most for pushing to merge the University of Wisconsin in Madison with the state college system, a fierce battle that created today’s system of 13 fouryear state colleges. Lucey was born in La Crosse, Wisconsin, in 1918. He worked as a grocery store manager from 1937 until 1940 and served in World War II in the Caribbean. He was elected to the state Assembly in 1948 and became executive director and later chairman of the state Democratic Party. He served as lieutenant governor in 1966. Lucey’s biggest legacy was creating the modern UW System. Before he was governor, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, UW-Milwaukee, UW-Green Bay, UW-Parkside, 10 freshman-sophomore centers and the extension system operated outside the chain of nine other

Anderson of Illinois (right) announced Lucey would be his vice presidential running mate. state schools such as Platteville and Eau Claire. Each group had its own board of regents. Lucey felt that was wasteful and called for a merger. But he faced stiff opposition from critics who felt lumping the Madison campus in with the rest of the schools would suck money from it and eat away at the university’s control of its own affairs. Lucey was able to muster enough support to make it happen. In October 1971, the state Senate gave the final go-ahead to force consolidation by one vote. Carter tapped Lucey to serve as his ambassador to Mexico in 1977, a year before Lucey’s second term as governor would have ended. In 1980, Lucey turned around and became independent John

Anderson’s running mate in a failed bid to defeat Carter and Republican Ronald Reagan, who won the election. Lucey continued to remain active in politics and every bit as opinionated well into his 90s. He briefly served with former Gov. Tommy Thompson as honorary co-chairmen for Justice David Prosser’s contentious campaign for Wisconsin Supreme Court in 2011 but withdrew his support just before the election because of what he called “a disturbing distemper and lack of civility” in Prosser, though he did not cite specifics. Lucey, in fact, was responsible for breaking the all-male dominance of the state’s high court when he appointed now Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson to it in 1976.

NIU police to conduct active-shooter training By KATIE DAHLSTROM kdahlstrom@shawmedia.com

Stephen Haberkorn for Shaw Media

Members of the Malta Lions Club, Larry Fullington (from left), Denny Heins, Vicke Heins and Debe Fullington work the annual Rose Day on Saturday morning.

Flowers for mom Malta Lions Club sold roses for Mother’s Day By STEPHEN HABERKORN editorial@dailychronicle.com Mother’s Day will be bittersweet for Dana Baars of DeKalb this year. “I just lost my 18-year-old daughter a few months ago and we’re expecting our new baby now, so this Mother’s Day is going to be very special for me and for my mom and for his mom, as well,” said Baars, who was in Malta on Saturday morning with the expectant father, Kris Bray. The couple was selecting roses for their mothers from the hundreds in the garage of Larry and Debe Fullington, members of the Malta Lions Club who were hosting their annual Rose Day. Rose Day is one of the biggest fundraisers of the year for Lions Clubs across the country. Some affiliates sell daisies, carnations, or even bushes, but roses are the most common item. The Malta Lions Club, which was founded in 1960 and has 31 members, has been doing a Rose Day annually for its existence. They started selling them on Mother’s Day weekend about 15 years ago, said Gary Kuhn of nearby Clare, who has been a member for 35 years. “It works really well for Mother’s Day. I don’t know how much bonus we get out of it, but it always happens to be graduation for Northern also,” Kuhn said. This year, the club will be selling 500 dozen roses for $15 a dozen. They purchased the roses from Glidden Campus Florist in DeKalb. If there are any remaining, they will give them to residents of local nursing homes. Kuhn sold 30 dozen roses and bought some for his wife and mother. He said he also delivers roses to a couple of widows of former Lions Club members. The money raised goes toward scholarships for high school students and equipment for the two well-used playgrounds in town – one of which is Lions Park. “I take my grandkids down

[to the park] almost every day, and one day I counted 18 kids there,” said Debe Fullington, one of four female members of the Malta Lions Club. Andrew Almburg of Malta bought flowers for his mom. “She put up with three boys rough housing and running around, but always kept us straight. She’s really proud of all of us, and we’re proud of her,” Almburg said. “Mother’s Day is really important to show her that we thank her for all she did.” The Almburg brothers planned to go over to his parent’s house Sunday to work in their mother’s big garden. “She usually uses the boys for labor on Mother’s Day. We’re happy to do it,” Almburg said. He and his wife are expecting their first child in October, so he was buying her a dozen roses, too. “It’s an unofficial Mother’s Day gift,” he said. Austin Cook, 11, of Malta was getting roses for his mother, Dawn. “She cooks really good meals and if we need help with homework or chores, she’ll come out and help,” he said. Austin also made a “Mom” crown at school with small green jewels and a heart on it to give to his mother. The Cooks were going to spend time with Dawn’s family, including her mom and grandma, at their lakeside cabin near the Quad Cities. “I’m just a lucky man that she picked me,” Doug Cook said about his wife. Jerry Herrera of Rochelle was picking up flowers for his girlfriend, Sheri, from her two kids. They were going to have both of their mothers over for a family cookout on Mother’s Day. His mother was widowed when his dad was 49, so she raised the kids by herself after that. “She was a great mother. She made a lot of sacrifices for us,” he said. The Fullingtons also were selling Vidalia onions from their garage Saturday, and several people bought both roses and onions for their mothers. “It wouldn’t be my first choice,” Fullington said, “but we can always use them for putting on hamburgers. It is the grilling season.”

DeKALB – Starting today, Northern Illinois University police will conduct training for active-shooter situations on campus, culminating in a full-scale simulation at the end of the month. NIU police will run simulations from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Friday until May 23 at in Grant Towers South near Grant Drive and Stevenson Drive. The training will end with a full-scale active-shooter simulation involving city of DeKalb police and fire, Sycamore police, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s police and Illinois State Police on May 30 at Lincoln Hall. NIU Police Chief Tom Phillips said the public won’t see

much of the training happening in the vacant Grant Towers South over the course of the next two weeks because the area will be blocked. Training will take place in the lobby, Grant B Tom Phillips Tower and the Grant A and B formal lounge. “People might see officers moving in and out of the building, but it will be very obvious it’s training,” Phillips said. The most notable action will take place May 30 when NIU, state and local authorities will take part in a fullscale exercise simulating a multiple active-shooter scenario with the shooters barricaded inside Lincoln Hall with students. The May

30 exercise will involve simulated radio traffic, a test of NIU’s emergency notification system and use of the Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System. Phillips said his agency conducts similar training annually, but the May 30 exercise will be the first of its size in DeKalb County. “This exercise will be bringing together all the agencies that would come together during a disaster,” Phillips said. “We’re not an island in and of ourselves. We need to work together.” During the simulation, officers will be using paintball-like guns that shoot colored soap pellets. Phillips explained each officer will be checked to ensure there are no real weapons involved in the simulation.

NIU officials project traffic delays will occur adjacent to Lincoln Hall on Lucinda Avenue, Annie Glidden Road, Stadium Drive East and Lincoln Drive North. Phillips added NIU’s history serves as a clear example of why authorities conduct this type of training, pointing to Feb. 14, 2008, when Steven Kazmierczak, a former NIU student, walked into Room 101 of Cole Hall on the university’s DeKalb campus and opened fire, killing five people and injuring at least 16 others before killing himself. Phillips hopes the multi-jurisdictional exercise will become part of the university’s annual training. “I think it’s time for a win for this community,” Phillips said. “It’s about bringing the team together.”

State school-funding fix aimed at disparities Insurgents say By KERRY LESTER The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – The regional breakdown of impacts from a proposed overhaul of state school funding explains the divided and emotional reaction it has received among lawmakers and educators – and how difficult it will be to advance such a proposal during this election year. In southern and central Illinois, the proposed changes would mean a boost in state funding for 410 of 575 school districts, according to an analysis distributed by the Illinois State Board of Education last week. In Cook County, 69 of 78 districts would lose funding, including Chicago Public Schools, with an estimated $28 million drop under the proposal. In Chicago’s collar counties, 122 of 143 districts would see major funding cuts, many to the tune of 80 percent of current levels. The proposal, which would require districts to demonstrate need for state aid, was welcomed by dozens of downstate superintendents who lobbied in the Capitol for the changes, which they believe will bring more equality to education across the state. It simultane-

ously was blasted by suburban lawmakers and superintendents who said it would lead to unfair property tax hikes to maintain education levels in their districts. But whether the Legislature acts on the proposal or not, the state’s top educators say the reaction is a net win as lawmakers learn more about the state’s 17-year-old funding formula and more people realize

the current disparity in school funding from one region to the next. “We’re having rich and thoughtful discussions about the have’s and have not’s and how money’s being distributed,” said state Superintendent of Education Christopher Koch. “We need this conversation.” Koch, who supports the legislation, said the state board

By PETER LEONARD The Associated Press DONETSK, Ukraine – Ninety percent of voters in a key industrial region in eastern Ukraine came out in favor of sovereignty Sunday, pro-Russian insurgents said in announcing preliminary results of a twin referendum that is certain to deepen the turmoil in the country. Roman Lyagin, election chief of the self-styled Donetsk People’s Republic, said around 75 percent of the Donetsk region’s 3 million or so eligible voters cast ballots, and the vast majority backed self-rule. With no international election monitors in place, it was all but impossible to verify the insurgents’ claims. The preliminary vote count was announced just two hours after the polls closed in an election conducted via paper ballots. A second referendum organized by pro-Russian separatists was held Sunday in eastern Ukraine’s industri-

al Luhansk region, but no immediate results were released. Ukraine’s central government and the West had condemned the balloting as a sham and a violation of international law, and they have accused Moscow of orchestrating the unrest in a possible attempt to grab another piece of the country weeks after the annexation of Crimea. The results of the two referendums could hasten the breakup of the country and worsen what is already the gravest crisis between the West and Russia since the end of the Cold War. Although the voting in the two regions with a combined population of 6.5 million appeared mostly peaceful, armed men identified as members of the Ukrainian national guard opened fire on a crowd outside the town hall in Krasnoarmeisk, and an official with the region’s insurgents said people were killed. It was not clear how many.

Report blames failure on limited money and staff • OIL Continued from page A1 Beaudreau, a principal deputy assistant interior secretary, wrote that he generally agreed with the recommendations for improved state coordination and updated regulations. The report makes clear in many instances that the BLM’s failure to inspect high-priority oil and gas wells is due to limited mon-

ey and staff. BLM officials said they were in the process of updating several of its policies later this year. Investigators reviewed 14 states in full or part: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming. In Ohio, Pennsylvania and elsewhere, fracking has become increasingly prevalent.

Hello, my name is Tex. I’m a 9 year old boy who was brought to TAILS because one of the children in my home was allergic to cats. I lived as an indoor cat with them my whole life. I get along well with people of all ages including young children. I am also friendly with cats and dogs. I like to eat sensitive stomach formula dry foods to prevent getting an upset tummy. Everyone at TAILS loves how gentle and friendly I am. Yes, I’m 9 years old, but I still have a lot of love to give! Cats can live to their late teens, sometimes even into their 20s!

DeKALB – Toini Elisa Koski, 102, of DeKalb, Illinois, went to her Lord on Friday, May 9, 2014, at Oak Crest DeKalb Area Retirement Center. Born Jan. 12, 1912, in DeKalb, the daughter of Oscar E. and Maria (Ketonen) Koski, Toini was the second of their five children. A lifelong resident of DeKalb, she was a 1930 graduate of DeKalb High School. Toini worked 34 years at Northern Illinois Finance Corporation, then worked an additional 10 years for DeKalb Agricultural Association. At one time, she was a member of Business & Professional Women. Toini Koski was greatly loved by her family and her many nieces and nephews. She lived a socially active life, surrounded by family, friends and the members of her church, Bethlehem Lutheran Church of DeKalb, where she was a dedicated lifelong member, serving on the church board, as a Sunday school teacher for 25 years, and as the church’s first financial secretary, among other services. She also was a member of the women’s circle, altar guild and other social groups. A member of Woman’s Club of DeKalb, Toini was a charter member of Kishwaukee Community Hospital Auxiliary. Toini was proud of her Finnish heritage and spoke Finnish all of her life. She had a great love for children and animals and was well known for her fudge, a family favorite. She is survived by her brother, Lauri Koski; nieces, Karen Koski Udell,

is brainstorming a number of tweaks to make the proposal more palatable to the suburbs. One possibility, he said, is removing a requirement to comply with programs the state mandates but does not fund. As it stands now, Illinois schools get state money in a variety of ways. General state aid – the money used to offset the basic cost of educating students – is based on a formula that factors in poverty levels. But districts also get grants for special education, transportation and vocational training that don’t factor in poverty. It is in those programs that the restructuring proposal, sponsored by Democratic state Sen. Andy Manar of Bunker Hill, would reduce funds to more wealthy districts and give it to needier districts. Since the formula was last changed in 1997, spending increases on specialized programs have outpaced increases to general aid. Advocates of the formula change say that results in the poorest districts being hurt most during tough budget years. Districts can supplement state aid with local tax dollars, but that leads to a wide disparity in how much is spent on students from one district to another.

The dramatic retellings, some sung as ballads, are accompanied on a 16th century Renaissance lute and are set to 16th century French and English ballad tunes. Bruno Bettleheim, in “Uses of Enchantment,” discusses the power of fright in children as a necessary and useful survival tool. Marcotte holds degrees in voice performance, musicology and early music, and has performed Celtic and Renaissance music throughout the country. Heineman is a storyteller, producer and teacher who has been selected as an Illinois Humanities Council Road Scholar and an Illinois ArtsTour and Residency Artist.

Free circuit bending lab explores science of music Wondering what to do with those old electronic toys that keep counting, beeping and singing from the bottom of the toy box? Try rewiring them to create new electronic sound machines. The practice is called circuit bending and it’s the subject of a free hands-on lab hosted by STEM Outreach on Saturday. The lab will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at Northern Illinois University Swen Parson Hall room 146. Free parking is available at NIU’s parking garage. Organizers say this hands-on lab will be fun for elementary and middle school students. Parents are encouraged to play and discover alongside their children. “We want participants to learn about electricity and have fun experimenting with circuits,” STEM Outreach Associate Jeremy Benson said in a news release. He said the group will “take apart electronic toys and then rewire them to make some crazy cool electric sounds.” Participants can bring their own used electronic toys to rewire or use one provided by STEM Outreach. Benson will co-host the lab with circuit bending enthusiast Mike Taylor from NIU’s Digital Convergence Lab. Taylor holds a Mas-

ter of Music degree in Computer Music and New Media Technology from NIU and has been circuit bending for almost 10 years. Taylor said he enjoys circuit bending because it is an exploratory process. “It’s about your interest in exploring circuits. It’s about hands-on trial and error and experimentation. Anyone who can hold a screwdriver can start bending. It’s all about discovery,” he said in the release. The Circuit Bending lab is part of the STEM Outreach’s Bright Futures partnership with public libraries in DeKalb, Sycamore and Cortland. Throughout the spring, library patrons have been exploring the Science of Music. The program will conclude on June 10, during a Science of Music festival at Hopkins Park. From 5:30 to 8 p.m., STEM Outreach, local musicians and the DeKalb Municipal Band will present handson demonstrations with music, sound and technology. After the fair, participants can stay for the Municipal Band’s first concert of the summer season.

Nosedive in traffic deaths a healthy trend

8LETTERS TO THE EDITOR You ain’t seen nothin’ yet To the Editor: There is a lot pre-midterm election chatter taking place in the mainstream media. The general consensus seems to be that Republicans will retain the United States House of Representatives and possibly take back control of the Senate. I disagree for one reason and one reason only: The mainstream media. Even though most people say they mistrust and don’t believe what the mainstream media say, you cannot minimalize their effect on the electorate, and therefore the election. There will be hoards of stories about how each and every Democrat is so far superior to each and every Republican that no “fair and reasonable person” could even think about voting Republican. Watch and see all the giveaways that President Barack Obama will offer trying to buy more votes. It is truly amazing that anyone continues to believe anything Obama says after all the provable lies he has told and continues to tell.

I’m not talking about the standard, keep your health plan/doctor. I’m talking about him being for marriage between a man and a woman, or saying he’s for equal pay for women when women working at the White House make less than men. Three weeks after he knew the Benghazi attack had nothing to do with an anti-Muslim video, he went in front of the U.N. and continued that lie. He continues to say how concerned he is for the middle class as their conditions get worse and those rich folks’ conditions continue to get better. I would like to ask, “why does Obama continually bash Fox News”? Because it is the only place to get the truth and real news. Watch and decide for yourself. Robert Krall DeKalb

Illinois doesn’t have $100 million for library To the Editor: I guess we have some extra money sitting around in Springfield. This month, the majority party in Illinois advanced a plan to the

House floor to use $100 million in taxpayer dollars for the construction of an Obama Presidential Library in Chicago. The party-line vote came two weeks after the same panel used a controversial procedural move to give unanimous consent to the spending despite the majority of the members not being present. With billions in unpaid bills and a $100 billion unfunded pension liability, it is clear Illinois has massive financial problems that are affecting the quality of life of residents, hundreds upon thousands of whom are leaving the state for good every year. Our available dollars should be focused on state services like education, human services, public safety, and public infrastructure. Why would we spend money we don’t have, on a project we are not required to fund? Public money has never before been used in the process of building a modern federal presidential library (The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library is owned by Illinois). Presidents from Herbert Hoover through George W. Bush – the 31st through 43rd Presidents of

the United States – have had libraries constructed with private funds from the people who politically and financially supported the individual president. For example, President Bill Clinton raised over $200 million and President George W. Bush raised over $250 million in private donations for construction. I am confident in President Obama’s fundraising prowess in order to build his own library, as opposed to pilfering money from the services Illinoisans depend on. While the leaders of the majority party in Springfield have floated five separate tax hike proposals since January – each under the pretense that we don’t have enough money to fund our most essential services like education – the same leaders are now turning to taxpayers to foot the $100 million bill for the construction of the Obama library. Although I support locating the Obama Library in Illinois, it is irresponsible to suggest using taxpayer money to help fund it given the state’s grim fiscal condition. Joe Sosnowski Rockford Republican state representative, 69th District

Victims of campus rape should be dialing 911 If a 19-year-old high-school dropout raped by her ex-boyfriend wants justice, she calls the police. The same should apply to a 19-year-old college freshman similarly attacked by another student. But it doesn’t apply nearly enough. Colleges have let themselves become arbiters of violent crime. They have no business being in that business. Furthermore, they got into the business for bad reasons. The inevitable result has been students suing their universities over what they see as an inadequate response to their allegations of sexual abuse. The feds are investigating several schools – including Harvard, Princeton, Ohio State and Florida State – over the matter. Many colleges want sexual crimes on campus handled in-house so the public doesn’t learn of them. In Rhode Island, for example, colleges have recorded 500 sexual assaults over a recent decade, but only one involved a call to police. The other bad reason is that many of the aggrieved women prefer going to university authorities for a more cushioned experience. It is believed that a college-based panel investigating charges of “gender-based sexual misconduct” will be more sympathetic to the woman’s narrative. It is also assumed that colleges will place less emphasis than police on possible mitigating circumstances: Whether the woman and her alleged attacker were drunk. Whether they already had a

VIEWS Froma Harrop consensual sexual relationship, which is usually the case. Oddly, the accusers often want to protect their alleged attackers from the harsher treatment they might receive in the criminal justice system. The Columbia University student magazine The Blue and White carried a perceptive analysis of what’s going on, by Barnard College senior Anna Bahr. She wrote of the complainants: “Some explicitly hoped for leniency – seeing their assaulter participate in a remedial, community-based program was more attractive than expulsion. In other cases, students felt conflicted about sending their assaulter to jail – ‘ruining the life’– of an individual who had once been a friend.” Thing is, outside the cosseted confines of the university gates, victims don’t assume they may customize the punishment meted out to their assailants. And you do wonder about the blurred lines – in some of the women’s heads – regarding the true nature of the crimes they’re alleging. In New York state, conviction for first-degree rape can bring up to 25 years in prison. One celebrated case involves Emma Sulkowicz. While a sophomore at Colum-

bia University, Sulkowicz says she invited into her room a man she considered a good friend and with whom she had had consensual sex twice. In the course of having sex, he became violent, hitting her and forcing her to have anal sex. She says she felt disrespected by the university adjudicators and wronged when the panel held the male student “not responsible.” So she’s suing the university for, among other things, not protecting her from the possibility that she might run into her alleged assailant at the library. And she still hasn’t called the police. In New York, the statute of limitations for someone to be charged with the sexual assault of an adult is five years. Sulkowicz could report him to law enforcement today. Rape and any other violent attack should be a matter for police, not a team of university counselors, administrators and panels. If the police are not up to the task – and they’ve gotten better at dealing sensitively with sexual crimes against women – then that’s the issue. A university wanting to ease the perceived or real trauma of its charges might offer counseling and medical services. But when a student insists she’s been raped and wants justice done, then the appropriate guidance is to help her dial 911.

Don’t look now, but Illinois’ highway traffic fatalities have taken a big nosedive since the beginning of the year. As of Friday, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation, 254 people had lost their lives in fatal crashes on all roadways in the state. That marks a nearly 25 percent reduction compared with the 336 fatalities from the same date a year ago. With the year more than one-third over, Illinoisans have reason to celebrate such good news. What could be the cause? Here are a few possibilities: • The ban on drivers using hand-held cellphones took effect Jan. 1. With one less distraction behind the wheel, drivers might be having fewer crashes en route to their destinations. • Drifting snow, slippery ice and bone-chilling cold might have discouraged drivers from making road trips during parts of January, February and March. Fewer people on the road could have led to fewer crashes. • The increase in the interstate highway speed limit from 65 to 70 mph also could have been a factor, although it sounds counterintuitive. However, supporters of the 70 mph limit argued that highway safety would improve if more vehicles traveled at the same speed. • With each passing year, more drivers are in cars with advanced safety features than ever before. Last year, when 992 people lost their lives in Illinois traffic crashes, the death rate was 2.72 a day. If the current death rate for 2014 of 1.97 a day continues through December, Illinois is on track to experience a more than 270-person reduction in its death toll, to about 720. That would be just a shade less than the all-time record low, established in 1920, the first year the state began keeping records of fatalities. It would also be the biggest year-to-year decline since 1943. In fact, deaths resulting from auto crashes have not topped 1,000 since 2008. Before then, annual traffic deaths were routinely been in the four-digits for 86 years. How can motorists continue to participate in this beneficial trend? Keep their hands off cellphones while behind the wheel, and keep their eyes on the road. Distracted driving, in fact, is one of the “Fatal Four” infractions that State Police continue to target for enforcement, along with speeding, driving under the influence and not wearing seat belts. Disobeying the seat-belt law remains a problem. Among the 254 fatalities thus far in 2014, restraint was not used, or used improperly, in 72 instances. Of course, seat belts cannot always prevent death. It’s worth noting that, so far this year, 89 people wearing seat belts in crashes still lost their lives. The trend for much safer highways in 2014 has been established. Let’s keep it going. We urge people to continue to drive defensively and watch out for the other guy.

BLACKHAWKS PLAYOFFS

Versteeg returns – on top line By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com CHICAGO – Kris Versteeg has come to understand how fragile confidence can be. Before Sunday, Versteeg had been relegated to being either a healthy scratch or a fourth-line skater during the Blackhawks’ first 10 playoff games. When he was on the ice, his play had been underwhelming, registering two assists and a minus-1 rating in seven games. But before Sunday’s Game 5 of a Western Conference semifinal series against the Minnesota Wild, Versteeg was reinserted into the Hawks’ lineup, finding himself on the top line with Jonathan Toews and Bryan Bic-

After gaining a new perspective of the game as a spectator for much of the postseason, Versteeg maintains his confidence hasn’t been shaken. He says he’s fine. That he believes in his ability and that if given an opportunity, he can be effective. Now, he knows the key is proving it. “You obviously want to play,” Versteeg said. “But you also under-

stand that you’re trying to be part of a team here and whatever it takes to win, you understand and you take it in stride.” Versteeg’s addition to the lineup was part of a personnel shake-up that also placed Peter Regin on the fourth line. In back-to-back losses to the Wild in Minneapolis, the Hawks scored only two goals and were held in check by a team that has proved it can limit the Hawks’ offensive effectiveness.

NFL DRAFT

NEXT STEP FOR LYNCH

File photo by Monica Maschak – mmaschak@shawmedia.com

Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch and safety Jimmie Ward shake hands after winning, 30-27, over Iowa August 31 at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City, Iowa. Lynch was picked up as an undrafted free agent by the Bears this past weekend.

Former NIU QB has options as running back for Bears Jordan Lynch isn’t your average undrafted free agent. The former Northern Illinois football star and third-place finisher in the 2013 Heisman Trophy balloting always believed he’s deserved a shot at quarterback. And this writer who watched him dominate the past two years believes the same thing. Maybe Lynch still gets a shot with the Bears, a team he agreed to terms with as an undrafted free agent after he was passed over in the 2014 NFL Draft. Former NIU safety Jimmie Ward was selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the 30th overall pick, while defensive tackle Ken Bishop was taken by the Cowboys in the seventh round. Defensive end Joe Windsor was

VIEWS Steve Nitz signed by Dallas as an undrafted free agent as well. But if the Bears’ brass doesn’t think Lynch is a quarterback, he has the luxury of having other options most of the quarterbacks who were selected this weekend or signed as free agents don’t have. Lynch signed with the Bears to play running back, a position analysts have predicted he would fit well at should quarterback not work out, and it will be interesting to see how well he sticks there, and if there are any type of wildcat-type

packages the Bears use him in. There are plenty of college quarterbacks who switched positions in the NFL. Antwaan Randle-El was a stud at Indiana before moving on to be a Pro Bowl wideout in the NFL. Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman was a quarterback at Kent State. He even played some defensive back for New England three years ago. Michael Robinson was Penn State’s signal-caller before the San Francisco 49ers switched him to running back. Brian Mitchell became a record-setting return man after playing quarterback at Southwestern Louisiana (now Louisiana-Lafayette).

Ex-Huskie will add sizzle to summer LAKE FOREST – The Bears had made all eight of their draft picks. The annual title of Mr. Irrelevant – given to the last player selected in the final round at No. 256 overall – had gone to some safety from Memphis. And then it happened. “BEARDOWN!!!” The all-caps scream came from Jordan Lynch’s Twitter account. All of us knew what it meant. It meant this summer just got a lot more interesting. It meant that training camp practices on August afternoons in Bourbonnais just became must-see sports theater. It meant that Northern Illinois’ star quarterback was going to the Bears as an undrafted free agent to compete for a coveted spot on the 53-man roster. What say you, Bears general manager Phil Emery? “We’re not allowed to comment until they’re signed,” Emery said with a smile when he was asked about Lynch’s happy tweet. “So I’ll just say that Jordan had a really good visit here, and he expressed a strong desire to be a Chicago Bear.” And …? “We both let each other know that if things didn’t work out in the draft and he was still there,” Emery said, “we would love for him to be here.” OK, got it. Now, for the fun stuff. What position is Lynch going to play, anyway? “I think he’s a really fine runner,” Emery said when asked about Lynch’s attributes. “I think the fact he can throw and throw with accuracy in a short area is good, too. I think you want as many athletes who can do as many things as possible, and he certainly presents options that way.

SYCAMORE 11-9, BELVIDERE NORTH 5-1

Spartans belt four homers in sweep By TRAVIS ZUELLIG sports@daily-chronicle.com SYCAMORE – It was very average outing for the Sycamore baseball team in its doubleheader against Belvidere North on Saturday. But for the Spartans, an average outing means they score a ton of runs. Sycamore won, 11-5, in Game 1 and, 9-1, in Game 2. The Spartans combined for 21 hits, including four Monica Maschak – mmaschak@shawmedia.com home runs courtesy of Alec Kozak, Sycamore’s Mark Skelley makes contact with the ball in the first inning Saturday Cooper Vinz, Nate Gross and Ian against Belvidere North at Sycamore Park.

The wind was blowing out today and a couple of their pitchers were getting down in

the count early, and we were able to capitalize.” In the first contest, Sycamore (205) led 2-1 entering the bottom of the fourth inning. Then, the Spartans left no doubt in the contest. Kozak’s grand slam sparked a six-run inning, which put the game out of reach. Vinz and Michael Swanberg also had RBIs. “(We were) good, offensively and defensively,” Gross said. “There were no errors, which is always good. Started off a little slow but came through in the end in both games.”

Lynch among 9 undrafted rookies to sign By ARTHUR ARKUSH aarkush@chicagofootball.com The Bears on Sunday confirmed the signings of nine undrafted rookies, including Northern Illinois quarterback and Heisman finalist Jordan Lynch. The Bears also signed Louisville defensive tackle Brandon Dunn, Wisconsin guard Ryan Groy, TCU guard James Dunbar, Alabama linebacker Tana Patrick, Florida State linebacker Christian Jones, East Carolina defensive tackle Lee Pegues, Temple offensive

tackle Cody Booth and South Florida linebacker Devekeyan Lattimore. Lynch is listed as a running back on the team’s news release. After foregoing adding a linebacker during the draft, the Bears signed three, including Jones, widely considered one of the best prospects to go undrafted. NFL.com projected him as a second-to-third-round prospect. He is an athletic, 4-3 outside linebacker who had 56 tackles last year for the national champions.

Groy was a third-to-fourthround prospect who played in a Wisconsin-record 54 games in his career, starting all 13 games at left guard last season. General manager Phil Emery couldn’t get into specifics on undrafted players who had yet to sign as of his post-draft news conference Saturday night, but he said there was a lot of talent left from one of the deeper draft classes in recent memory. “[There] definitely still were a lot of quality players left on the board,” Emery said. “We spent a lot of time be-

Their eight draft picks and nine undrafted free agents will meet for a rookie mini-camp at Halas Hall beginning Friday.

Luxury to take advantage for former NIU QB • NITZ Continued from page B1 While Lynch has flaws that forced him to settle for being an undrafted free agent, he proved enough at NIU to deserve a shot to play under center. Sure, all 32 teams passed on him, but NIU was the only team to offer him a scholarship to play quarterback when he was coming out of Mt. Carmel High School, and that turned out alright. Maybe he becomes a fulltime running back, maybe he still gets a shot as a quarterback. It’s a great luxury Lynch will be able to take advantage of. • Steve Nitz is the Daily Chronicle’s NIU beat writer. Write to him at snitz@ shawmedia.com and follow him on Twitter @SNitz_DDC.

8SPORTS SHORT DeKALB – Senior Alex Klonowski set the Northern Illinois baseball (16-33-1, 11-13 Mid-American Conference) single season record for complete game shutouts in a season Sunday to clinch the series over Akron in a 2-0 victory. Klonowski scattered two hits, striking out seven with two walks on senior day. The shutout by Klonowski also tied the career record for complete game shutouts in a career with three. The performance also set a new program record for shutouts in a season by the Huskies, breaking the record of six set by the 1964 team. NIU went on the board in the first inning as Brandon Mallder singled to right centerfield with one out. Brian Sisler, a DeKalb graduate, followed that up with a double to left centerfield to score Mallder from first and extend his hitting streak to 13 games. The Huskies would tack on an insurance run in the eighth inning as Landon Tenhagen walked with one out in the frame. With two outs on him, Johnny Zubek hit a flare to left field that dropped 15 feet in front of the outfielder to score Tenhagen from second and put the Huskies up, 2-0. – Daily Chronicle

Sycamore’s Brett Weaver slides safely into second base as Belvidere North’s Will Mancini reaches for a catch in the third inning Saturday at Sycamore Park.

Spartans jump on Belvidere North early in both games • SWEEP Continued from page B1 Kozak had a big Game 1, with his three hits and six RBIs. In Game 2, Gross had the big game. The junior went 3 for 3 with a home run, a double and three RBIs. Cavanaugh said every spot in the lineup has a chance to make a contribution.

“It is nice when you have weapons up and down the lineup,” Cavanaugh said. “(Alec) Kozak is a guy who struggled from the beginning of the season and today, he had [three] hits in the first game and six RBIs. Ian Kidd hit a home run in the ninehole. And, Nate Gross hitting seventh in the second game had a homer and a double and drove in a bunch of

runs.” Sycamore didn’t start slow in the second contest, with the big inning coming in the bottom of the second. Sparked by a Vinz two-run homer, the Spartans batted around and scored five runs to take an early 5-0 lead. Mark Skelley earned the win on the mound in Game 2 for his five innings of work. The senior hurler al-

lowed one run on two hits while striking out three. Kye Schlosser was the winning pitcher in the first contest. “I think we played well. We adjusted to the slower pitching, and we started to hit the ball more,” Skelley said. “I pitched well. There were a couple walks here and there. It helps a lot when your teammates are helping you out at the plate.”

Quenneville ready to see Versteeg add speed to game • VERSTEEG Continued from page B1 After being demoted, he said he tried to watch the game from an “outsider’s perspective,” looking for little nuggets he can add to his game to make him more effective once he returned to the ice. Hawks coach Joel Quenneville made it clear Sunday

morning what he wants from Versteeg now that he has returned to the ice. “We’re looking for more directness in his game, more pace,” Quenneville said after the morning skate. “We were ready to start him at the beginning of the [Minnesota] series, and he was sick. We want to get him up to speed, where he’s contributing with the puck, without the puck, influencing

both ways and have more speed in his game.” Versteeg said establishing pace against the Wild isn’t easy. Minnesota has found a way to slow the game, cutting the edge off the Hawks’ deep talent pool. Now paired with Toews and Bickell, Versteeg knows it’s up to him to help deliver some of the quickness that has been lacking over the past two games.

He admits, however, that can be easier said than done against the Wild. “Obviously, I bring skill and maybe [being] tenacious on the puck,” Versteeg said. “That’s just always the way I have played ... with an offensive style and trying to be good in my own zone. I’m just going to try to bring an all-around game that I’ve always been able to do.”

H-BR’s Jacob Ryan struck out 11 Hawks in a complete game, allowing five hits and walking two hitters. Dylan Youhanaie went 4 for 4 with three RBIs for the Royals. Zach Vistine finished 2 for 2 with two RBIs. Dutch Schneeman and Jacob Morsch added two RBIs for the Royals.

T’wolves split doubleheader: Indian Creek defeated Plano, 7-4, in Game 1 of a doubleheader before dropping Game 2, 5-1. Trevor Guerra was the winning pitcher in Game 1, improving to 6-0. Jake Wieseler was 2 for 4 with four RBIs for the Timberwolves, while Brock Myers went 2 for 4 and Guerra finished 2 for 3. David Emanuel was 1 for 3 in Game 2 for Indian Creek (12-1). Knights fall: At Maple Park, Austin Wheatley had three hits and Ty Carlson, Dan Hammermeister and Jacob Bachio each had two hits and two RBIs for Kaneland, but the Knights fell 8-7 in eight innings after allowing Oswego to tie the game with two runs in the top of the seventh. Kaneland is now 14-9.

SOFTBALL Spartans split with Blue Thunder: At Sycamore, the Spartans split a nonconference doubleheader. The Spartans lost Game 1, 11-4, and won Game 2, 5-1. Jasmyne Taylor went 2 for 2 with a home run, triple and two RBIs for the Spartans, while Tristyn Criswell finished 2 for 3. Taylor Zak was the winning pitcher in Game 2, striking out three hitters. Taylor Jones finished 2 for 3 with a double and three RBIs, while Paige Bjork

ry “potentially profound.” The Knights already were deep before the meet started. Winning six of 18 events in a competition hosted by South Elgin but held at Streamwood, Kaneland scored 128 points to defend its county title. Next up: hitting strides in next week’s Northern Illinois Big 12 conference meet, then the Class 2A state series. “We all know that we’re just as good as one another, so we’re always pushing in practice and we’re challenging each other,” Knights junior middle distance runner Andrew Lesak said. “We just have the mentality that we’re always going to hit those fast times, and we do.” Runner-up Batavia scored 77 points, while St. Charles East had 68 to take third among 15 teams. Kaneland opened the track finals with a narrow victory against Batavia in the 4x800-meter relay. Knights anchor Nathaniel Kucera traded the lead with Bulldogs counterpart Ryan Wieties in the last lap before Kucera discovered the final kick to help Kaneland finish in 8:00.64 – .53 seconds ahead of Batavia. As Lesak told it, the effort resembled something of a flu relay. The same group in a different order was about 10 seconds faster at the Knights’ Peterson Prep meet in late April. “All of us are really sick,” said Lesak, who flanks Division I-bound seniors Kucera (Stanford), Kyle Carter (Southern Illinois) and Luis Acosta (Western Illinois). “I got sick just after Peterson. Nathaniel just got sick. Kyle has been sick. … We’re just hoping next week is better.” East’s Devon Kelly did little to ease any queasiness in the second event, the 4x100. Running anchor for the first time, he nipped Kaneland’s Isaac Swithers in the final leg. The

was 2 for 3 and Lyndsey Coddington finished 2 for 4.

NapervilleNorth13-7,Kaneland 7-10: At Maple Park, Kaneland (13-11) split the nonconference doubleheader, in which Morgan Weber homered in both games, and Lanie Callaghan homered in Game 2. Shannon Herra was Kaneland’s winning pitcher in Game 2.

Timberwolves drop doubleheader: Indian Creek lost, 110, in Game 1 and lost 16-10, in Game 2 of a nonconference doubleheader against Plano. Kayla Kauffman had two home runs, bumping her season total to seven, which is a school record.

Daily Chronicle / Daily-Chronicle.com

Man’s wife seeks the sun for her final years Dear Abby: I have been married for 18 years to a wonderful woman who was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer a few years ago. We don’t know how much time she has left, but she feels the cancer has robbed her of her “retirement.” She is trying to persuade our family to move to Florida so she can enjoy some warm weather. Abby, for many reasons I do not want to move. We have lived in the Midwest all our lives. My elderly parent would be all alone if we move, and I have a sibling who is also terminally ill. I have had the same job for 25 years, and I don’t want

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips to give it up because I have the freedom to do much of my work from home, which allows me to help my wife and have income as well. If we move, there would be no guarantee that I could find a similar work situation that is so beneficial. My wife says I’m being selfish because I’m unwilling to leave my job, family and friends to do as she wants. I understand her desire to live in a warmer climate, but

I think she’s the one who is being selfish. What do you think? – Wants To Stay Put

Dear Wants To Stay Put: I think the winter in the Midwest was brutal this year, and now the spring rains have arrived, which are also depressing. But in a short time the flowers will bloom and the warmth of summer and autumn will last for the next half-year. Why not take a vacation (or leave) from your job for the next three or four weeks? If you telecommute, you could still get some work done and let your wife have her dose of sunshine. Surely someone can check on your parent

and keep you informed about your sibling for that short time. I do not recommend moving anywhere permanently because there’s no guarantee you’d find a job that compensates you as well as the one you have, and you may need the income. Dear Abby: A tall, attractive man came into the insurance office where I work to buy an auto insurance policy. I haven’t talked with men outside of my church in a long time, so I was nervous. I thought my heart would explode from beating so fast. He will be coming back in a couple of weeks, and I’m afraid if I don’t ask him out,

I will regret it. I don’t know how to approach him or ask a guy out at all. Help! – Nervous Out West Dear Nervous: The man may be married, so take it slow. If he comes in before noon, casually mention there’s a restaurant not far away that serves good food and offer to show him. If he comes in later, use the old “want to grab a cup of coffee?” gambit. Either of these will give you a chance to talk with him and find out more about him without being overly obvious.

Research suspects virus is cause of Bell’s palsy Dear Dr. K: I went to my doctor with some alarming symptoms and he diagnosed me with Bell’s palsy. I don’t know anything about this condition. Dear Reader: Bell’s palsy, named after the person who first reported it in the medical journals, Charles Bell, is a weakness of the muscles on one side of the face. All muscles in your body take their orders from nerves leading to them. When you think of muscles, you probably think of the big, bulky muscles in your arms and legs. But there are small muscles in your face as well. Smile as big a grin as you can. Now blink your eyes. Now raise your eyebrows.

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff To do each of these things, your brain sent signals that traveled down certain nerves to the small muscles in your face. Those signals told the muscles to tighten – which, in turn, caused different parts of your face to move in a certain way. There are two main nerves leading to the facial muscles, one on each side of your face. (Smaller branches of the facial nerves go to the tongue and ear.) Bell’s palsy occurs when a facial nerve (usually just one of the two) becomes inflamed

and swollen and stops sending signals to muscles in your face. (I’ve put an illustration that shows an inflamed facial nerve, as happens in Bell’s palsy, on my website.) Your early symptoms may have included changed sensation in part of your face, pain in or around your ear, change in hearing and impaired taste. As the condition progressed, you may have had trouble closing your mouth or one eye. Perhaps you were unable to hold food in your mouth, or your eyes made more tears than usual (or made none, causing the eye to become dry and gritty). Researchers suspect the nerve inflammation that causes Bell’s palsy is often

triggered by an infection with a virus, such as herpes simplex. That’s the same virus that causes cold sores. Some of the other members of the herpes virus family also may be responsible. If your symptoms are very mild, you may not need treatment. Otherwise, doctors usually prescribe a corticosteroid called prednisone. Prednisone reduces inflammation and swelling in the affected facial nerve and decreases pain. Some doctors prescribe a combination of prednisone and an antiviral drug that acts against the herpes virus. If Bell’s palsy is making it difficult to close your eyes or to make tears, your cornea can become dry and get

scratched. (Your cornea is the curved, transparent dome at the front of your eye.) To prevent this, you must protect your eyes from wind and dust by wearing glasses. You will need to keep your eyes moist with artificial tears during the day and by lubricating your eyes at night with a sterile eye ointment. Sometimes the doctor may suggest that you wear an eye patch for a period of time to keep the eye closed. The symptoms of Bell’s palsy can be frightening, but in most people, symptoms start to improve by two weeks. Most people are back to normal by six months.

Teen: What can I do to win back my girlfriend? Dr. Wallace: My girlfriend and I were at the ice cream parlor last week and we got into a heated argument over nothing. When she swore at me I got really angry and called her a pig. She slapped my face and a lot of people saw this, which made things worse, and I was really mad and pushed my ice cream cone into her face. She started crying and told me she never wanted to see me again and then ran out of the store. Later her father called me and told me that I could never take his daughter out again and not to call her anymore. This girl swore at me, and she was the violent one who slapped my face first. All I did was call her a pig and put a little ice cream on her face, but now I’m the bad guy

We have been a happy couple for over a year and I know she still cares for me. I can feel it in my bones that one day we will be married. – Jacob, Mobile, Alabama Jacob: You are just as much to blame for the public scene as your now ex-girlfriend. Your girlfriend’s father is justified in telling you to “get lost and to stay lost.” And finally, I can think of nothing at the moment that would be

TODAY – Aim for harmony in your business and personal relationships this year. You will fall short of your goals if you give in to self-doubt. Spend more time doing things that relax and revive you. Size up your situation until you know what you want, and make your dreams come true. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – You are always ready to lend a hand, and it will win you many friends and valuable allies. An associate will provide the key needed to help you realize a professional opportunity. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – You will be admired for your creative talents. You may be in a mood to party, but don’t give in to excess. Overindulgence will lead to stress and weight gain. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Problems with your partner may require professional help. If you are not getting the honest feedback you need, get legal advice. Taking a casual “wait and see” attitude could be costly. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – You can’t take things at face value. Someone may be stretching the truth. Rather than depend on others, you will need to do some independent digging to get the real story. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – This is not a good time to lend or borrow. Someone may try to take advantage of you. Steer clear of any loan requests, and keep tabs on your possessions. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Concentrate on personal pleasures rather than group involvements. Take time to pamper yourself. It will help dispel the worry and uneasiness that are distracting you from your goals. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – It may be a favorable time to invest. Look into antiques, art or other objects that have the potential to increase in value. Choose items that also enrich your life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Don’t be deceived by a fast talker. Your trusting nature could cost you. Rely on your instincts. If something seems too good to be true, stay away. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – You will get ahead if you overcome your shyness. Others cannot help you until they know what you have to offer. Be self-assured and promote your assets and potential. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – It’s important to clear up unfinished business and stay on top of small details. Do whatever it takes to prepare for obstacles that may stand between you and your goals. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Your partner may be trying to keep something from you. If you are getting conflicting information, keep the conversation going until you find out exactly what’s going on. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Don’t be deterred by cynics. Be committed to your choices, and you will be able to forge ahead and get what you want in the end.

encouraging news regarding a reunion with your ex-girlfriend. They say that time heals all wounds, but in your case, I wouldn’t spend time waiting for this wound to heal. Besides, I’m not quite sure your ex and you are meant to live happily ever after. Bones don’t always tell the truth. Dr. Wallace: I’m in the 12th grade and contemplating going to college (or a community college) after high school. My dad promised me that he would buy a car for me if I promise that I will go to college. I’m a B-plus student, so I shouldn’t have much trouble going to Southern Illinois University right in my hometown. I desperately want and need my own car, but I’m not

positive that I want to go to college. My boyfriend won’t be going to college, and I’m not so sure I want to be separated from him. What should I do? – Nameless, Carbondale Nameless: I’m not so sure I understand why you would ask me for advice, but you asked, so I’ll tell you. Take Dad up on his offer. Enjoy the car, but keep your grades at the B-plus or better level. Then go to SIU and do your very best. See your boyfriend when you have a little spare time and take him for a ride in your car if he behaves himself. Dr. Wallace: I attended my first wedding last weekend. As the bride and groom were leaving the church, everyone tossed rice at them, but when I asked around, no one knew why. Do you? – Bev, Tallade-

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

ga, Alabama Bev: I didn’t know why rice was tossed either, but a trip to my public library gave me the answer. Many years ago the Greeks and Romans used to toss kernels of wheat and corn as symbols of fertility. This has evolved into throwing rice. As long as I’m so full of information on wedding traditions, I’ll tell you how the word “honeymoon” came about. Again, a long time ago, after the wedding ceremony, the couple had to hide from the bride’s parents until the search for her was dropped. The couple would hole up for one month (until the moon waned) while drinking a wine made from honey. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@galesburg.net.

8CROSSWORD

The continuing temptations An old proverb goes: Good habits result from resisting temptation. That can apply at the bridge table. South is in four hearts. West leads the diamond queen. What temptations must declarer avoid? In the fourth chair, it was reasonable for South to open four hearts. A slam was unlikely opposite a passed partner and probably this opening would silence the opponents, who might have been able to do well in another suit. From West’s lead, South knows that East has the diamond ace. So it is tempting to play low from the board. However, here that would give West a chance to be a genius by shifting to the spade eight. And when declarer plays the queen from the dummy, East ducks it. (He knows West would have led a singleton if he had one, and would not have shifted from four low spades.) Then the contract would fail; as it would if West had initially led a spade and East had ducked. So, South covers with dummy’s diamond king, ruffs the second diamond and draws trumps. It is then tempting to lead a spade to force a way into the dummy to take the tempting club finesse. However, if East, reading West’s spade eight as the start of a high-low with a doubleton, ducks, the contract must fail. Declarer will lose two spades, one diamond and one club. South has 10 tricks via one spade, seven hearts and two clubs. After drawing trumps, declarer should cash his club ace and continue with the club queen. Then, when he gets to the dummy in spades, he discards a spade loser on the club jack.
