City may switch building inspectors Considering outsourcing as DeKalb councilmen debate department’s future By KATIE DAHLSTROM kdahlstrom@shawmedia.com DeKALB – The city of DeKalb will consider a stopgap measure for building services as officials debate the future of the city’s building department. During their meeting tonight, DeKalb aldermen could enter into a temporary contract with SAFEbuilt Illinois to provide permit and building inspection services for the

If you go What: DeKalb City Council meeting When: 6 p.m. Tuesday Where: DeKalb City Hall, 200 S. Fourth St. city while the city employees who perform those duties are on administrative leave. Late last month, city leaders placed its building supervisor and two building

inspectors on administrative leave as part of a review of the building department that could end in services being permanently outsourced. Under the proposed contract, the city would pay SAFEbuilt 75 percent of plumbing and building permit fees as well as a one-time $1,000 payment for new permitting software. According to the contract, a SAFEbuilt inspector would hold office hours at DeKalb City Hall for

two hours a day, three days a week. Based on projected permitting activity for next fiscal year, city officials expect the contract will cost the city $202,000, which is 56 percent less than the $460,000 to maintain the building department employees and outside electric inspections, according to a memo from city staff. Public Works Director TJ Moore said he believed building department customers

would see improved service, noting the contract places specific timelines on various types of projects. “Right now, they have the ability to scale based on demand,” Moore said. “[SAFEbuilt] can provide people depending on how it ebbs and flows.” SAFEbuilt proposed a one year contract, although the contract can be terminated with 30 days notice. Officials would keep the contract in

place until a final decision was made about outsourcing. Steve Irving, the president of DeKalb-based Irving Construction, said his main concern with any changes in the building department are time related. “My biggest concern is getting timely inspections, regardless of who’s doing it,” Irving said. “We got tremendous service from the

‘LET US HONOR THEM ALWAYS AND NOT JUST ON MEMORIAL DAY’

Communities pause to honor fallen heroes Obama pays tribute, says troops are coming home

DeKalb County marks day with parade, solemn ceremonies By KATIE DAHLSTROM

For Matthew ‘Fritz’ Mihelcic, Monday was not about dwelling on the sorrow caused by the men and women who died while serving in the military, but for honoring their sacrifices while moving forward. Mihelcic, commander with the Illinois Veterans of Foreign Wars, spoke to a crowd gathered on the lawn of Elwood House on Monday as part of DeKalb’s Memorial Day services. “There should be no regrets about the people we are honoring, those who have gone before us,” Mihelcic said. Similar scenes played out across the country, as communities marked Memorial Day by paying tribute to service men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice. In DeKalb, Sycamore and places throughout DeKalb County, residents listened to messages of patriotism and respecting those who gave their lives for America’s freedom. Paulette Lindgren nearly started to cry on the lawn of Elwood house while looking at pictures of military members who died during service. Lindgren, of Cortland, said looking at the faces of those men and women brought back memories of when her former husband served in the army in Vietnam for 13 months. “Everyday I was afraid to laugh,” Lindgren said. “You were always afraid if you were enjoying something, you would get a telegraph.” Lt. Col. Christopher Clay, speaking at a special service Monday morning at Joiner Cemetery west of Sycamore, reminded people not to forget the burden that service members’ families bear. Clay served from 2002 to 2003 in Kosovo, 2003 to 2004 in Iraq and 2006 to 2007 in

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama led the nation in commemorating Memorial Day, declaring the United States has reached “a pivotal moment” in Afghanistan with the end of war approaching. Obama, who returned just hours earlier from a surprise visit with U.S. troops at Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan, paid tribute to those lost in battle there and elsewhere over history. He called them “patriots who made the ultimate sacrifice” for their country. “Early this morning, I returned from Afghanistan,” Obama told the audience of several thousand people. “Yesterday, I visited with some of our men and women serving there – 7,000 miles from home. For more than 12 years, men and women like those I met with have borne the burden of our nation’s security. Now, because of their profound sacrifice, because of the progress they have made, we’re at a pivotal moment.” “Our troops are coming home. By the end of this year, our war in Afghanistan will finally come to end,” the president said to applause. “And yesterday at Bagram, and here today at Arlington, we pay tribute to the nearly 2,200 American patriots who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan. We will honor them, always.” Obama has said it was likely that a small contingent of U.S. forces would stay behind for counterterrorism missions, as well as to train Afghan security forces. The president made a fleeting reference to the widening scandal involving reports of poor performance by the Department of Veterans Affairs, which is facing allegations of delayed treatments, and even deaths in Arizona.

Circuit Court Clerk Maureen Josh (from left), Dr. Paul Stromborg, retired judge Kurt Klein, Marilyn Stromborg and presiding Circuit Court Judge Robbin Stuckert gather recently for Stromborg’s retirement party in the DeKalb County courthouse jury room.

Marilyn Stromborg retires for 2nd time Those who know Marilyn Stromborg will agree she is a “Type A” personality. I can speak from experience because we have known each other as far back as 1960, when we worked together at Northern Illinois University’s campus newspaper The Northern Star. More about that later. Last week, Marilyn completed another chapter in her life, retiring as the DeKalb County Drug Court administrator, choosing the same time her husband, internist Dr. Paul Stromborg, retired from his practice. Marilyn and Paul met as undergrads at NIU, then both went into the Air Force, she in the nursing field stateside and he as a pilot in the Vietnam War. She had graduated from NIU with a degree in biology and chemistry, then went to the New York City Medical College to earn her registered nurse and master’s degree. While working at the University of Illinois at Chicago’s School of Nursing, she enrolled in NIU’s doctoral program. In 1978, she and Paul returned to her hometown of Sycamore, where he joined her father Dr. Irving Frank in medical practice and she began teaching in the NIU School of Nursing. She moved up to chair her last 10 years at the Nursing School and retired from NIU after 29 years. She decided to seek new challenges at age 50, and entered law school at

DeKALB COUNTY LIFE Barry Schrader Northern while still working full-time, earning her law degree in 1994. She quickly moved into the legal field, starting out as an assistant state’s attorney in Kane County, then into the same position in DeKalb County. Judge Robbin Stuckert and then-State’s Attorney Ron Matekaitis (now a judge himself) tapped her to organize a drug/ DUI court pilot program for the county, a program she then led for the past 10 years. The program became nationally recognized for its success and was named one of 10 top Mentor Drug Courts in the country by the National Association of Drug Court Professionals. There is not space enough here to list all her awards, books she wrote in the nursing field, boards and nonprofits she has served. Her latest honor came this year, when she was named one of Sycamore High School’s distinguished alumni. Now getting back to my earlier mention about how long we have known each other, I wanted to explain what I think was one of her finest acts of kindness. During my senior year at North-

ern, she told me she knew just the girl I should meet, one of her best friends in high school who now worked at NIU. She arranged that first date and, one year later, Kay and I were married. That was 50 years ago. Marilyn’s longtime friend, Circuit Court Clerk Maureen Josh, read a message at the retirement reception that had been sent by one of Marilyn’s sons, Nels. “Today, my parents begin a marvelous new chapter,” it said. “Contrary to what my mother believes, that does not mean almost certain and immediate death. It means a chance to reinvent yourself; a chance to teach us even more; a chance to reflect on the amazing things you both have accomplished and the amazing things to come. It is your time and our chance to pay you back.” I asked Marilyn that day if she had any political ambitions or would continue to use her law degree. She said definitely no to politics, but added she would let me know what she does have in mind after she and Paul return from a trip to Portugal and Spain. I knew Marilyn could never really retire.

8TODAY’S TALKER

Dems regroup, craft budget without higher tax By JOHN O’CONNOR and KERRY LESTER The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – Illinois House Democrats scaled back their spending aspirations Monday, saying they’re giving up on extending a temporary income tax increase and getting to work on a more modest budget with just five days left in the spring session. House Speaker Michael Madigan emerged from a Memorial Day caucus meeting and told reporters that he was dropping the idea of making the 5 percent income tax permanent – and crafting a budget blueprint that holds the line on spending but is not the “doomsday” plan the House overwhelmingly rejected on Friday. “We’re going to call upon the agencies and those that receive appropriations from the Legislature to live within their means,” said Madigan, a Chicago Democrat. “We understand the way this is. ... Let’s take a good hard look at it and get the job done.” Gov. Pat Quinn, facing a tough re-election campaign against Winnetka Republican businessman Bruce Rauner, spent the spring session encouraging extension of the tax hike to avoid steep cuts. Spokeswoman Brooke Anderson said Monday night the Democratic gov-

ernor is still trying to change minds and hearts on the tax in the session’s final days. “They should pass a responsible budget that properly funds schools, veterans and public safety services,” Anderson said. “It’s the right thing to do.” New estimates add $189 million in tax revenue growth to the bank account, Madigan said. Budget makers will look to borrowing built-up money in special funds and spending adjustments to develop a “middle-of-the-road” fiscal outline – between the doomsday scenario and one that increased spending by $3 billion with the continued escalated income tax. Republican leaders took some credit for stopping the income tax extension, which was adopted four years ago as a temporary hike, but they remained wary of how the Democrats would put together the election year budget that begins July 1. “This is not going to be the type of budget that a number of House Democrats feel warm about. But there is obviously going to be some pork put into it and that’s how they get some votes at the end of the year,” said House GOP Leader Jim Durkin of Western Springs. Republicans and Democrats agreed last winter on a projected revenue estimate of $34 billion. Quinn wanted the

temporary income tax hike made permanent, instead of allowing it to roll back to 3.75 percent in January, resulting in a loss of $1.6 billion. The increase costs the typical taxpayer about $1,100 more this year. Trying to persuade reluctant votes on the extension, the House two weeks ago adopted a $37 billion budget with more for education, child protective services and prisons. But enthusiasm for the revenue to pay for it never reached critical mass. The Senate had pledged enough votes to extend the income tax but had balked at a doomsday plan. But without additional revenue, “doomsday isn’t denied, it’s delayed” because flat-level spending won’t keep up with increased costs, said Rikeesha Phelon, spokeswoman for Senate President John Cullerton. Also on Monday, the House Executive Committee approved two 11th-hour measures that are raising eyebrows at the Capitol. The panel voted 7-4 on Rep. John Bradley’s initiative to short-circuit administrative rule-making on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, for oil and gas. The Marion Democrat’s legislation includes rules for the drilling industry to begin work because he’s frustrated that the Department of Natural Resources hasn’t approved guidelines a year after fracking was approved.

Mobile libraries reach out to DeKalb community By ANDREA AZZO aazzo@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Work keeps DeKalb resident Paris Dentley from taking her son to the library as often as she’d like, but now a library is coming to them. Northern Illinois University’s Jerry L. Johns Literacy Clinic placed a “little free library” Wednesday at Gideon Court Apartments, 1325 W. Lincoln Highway, DeKalb, where children could grab a book to read from a former newspaper vending machine. “It’ll be nice for [Randell] to be able to come down and still get that experience,” Dentley said about her son. Providing better access to books was the main goal of the literacy clinic, which currently has four locations with little free libraries. The newest location was unveiled Thursday at

Cayden Crawford, 1, explores the new Little Free Library at Gideon Court Apartments in DeKalb on Wednesday. The little library is an old newspaper dispenser donated by the Daily Chronicle. the food pantry of Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 1915 N. First St., DeKalb. The other two locations are at AB Supermarket, 1612 Sycamore Road in DeKalb, and El Flamingo Restaurant,

1029 Pleasant St. in DeKalb. The hope is to provide as many little free libraries across DeKalb and Sycamore in locations where families might not have the resources

to go to the library, said Laurie Elish-Piper, director of the clinic. The libraries work on an honor system: Children can grab a book from the newspaper vending machine and return it when they are finished reading the book. A graduate assistant at the literacy clinic will check each machine weekly to see if more books need to be added or replaced, Elish-Piper said. The clinic purchases its books at an 80 to 90 percent discount rate from Scholastic Family and Community Engagement. Each little free library can hold as many as 50 children’s books. “Our motto is, ‘Take a book, return a book,’ to spread the love of reading,” Elish-Piper said. Books are targeted for children up to middle school age. Young adult books also will be

available. Elisabeth Boothe, 10, of DeKalb, chose to read a young adult fiction novel called “Only the Good Spy Young” after the unveiling at Gideon Court Apartments. Boothe was determined to read the 265-paged book. She sat in the shade Wednesday reading while other students played in the playground. “I love reading, because it focuses your mind,” Elisabeth said, “and the books you read take you on a little journey.” Randell McDonald, 7, said his favorite books to read are adventure books. He was surprised when his mother told him the little free library was going to be a permanent fixture near the apartment complex’s playground. “I don’t have to go all the way to the public library,” Randell said with a smile. “I just walk to it.”

Sycamore’s comprehensive plan up for vote

By ANDREA AZZO aazzo@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Sycamore City Council members plan to vote at their next meeting on whether to approve the city’s newest comprehensive plan, but one alderman is not convinced the results were worth the investment. Sycamore spent about $18,000 to update its comprehensive plan, which was last updated in 2008. In January, the city held workshops to ask residents how the city could improve its infrastructure and downtown area, among other things. But 3rd Ward Alderman Steve Braser said at the last city council meeting that he

disagreed with the updated plan. “I’ve been through so many comprehensive plans, I don’t think anything new has been brought to the table,” Braser said. “I was hoping to see something with a little more meat in it than what was presented.” City Council will vote on whether to approve the updated plan Monday. Sycamore City Manager Brian Gregory admitted that few changes were made to the plan. He said the goal will be to focus on what the city already offers, rather than creating big changes. “We have to take care of what we have first,” Gregory said. “Let’s fill our vacancies before we concern ourselves with [new additions].” Council approved a professional services contract in October with Wills Burke Kelsey and Associates to help with the plan update. The comprehensive plan serves as a guide to the physical, social and eco-

The plan will be used for future planning and community decisions. It sets goals and objectives, and then details the process of obtaining those goals through land use standards, a downtown focus area and urban design guidelines, city documents show. Some goals identified in the updated plan include preserving homegrown businesses, attracting more unique, independent small businesses and restaurants, adding residential

housing to the upper floors of downtown buildings, keeping the penny parking meters and making downtown more bicycle friendly. Other city council members found the plan necessary. First Ward Alderman Alan Bauer downplayed the funds spent for the updated plan, saying the city gives more money to the Sycamore Chamber of Commerce for economic development. “Companies that want to come here want to know the city is well planned,” Bauer said. “This identifies clearly what we should be doing.” Officials were all proud of the city’s penny meters, which were listed in the comprehensive plan as part of Sycamore’s identity. “I would fight against getting rid of the meters simply because that’s the only place I can get rid of my pennies,” said 3rd Ward Alderman Greg Taylor.

Sheriff’s car struck during traffic stop near Hinckley HINCKLEY – A DeKalb County sheriff’s deputy was treated for minor injuries after an SUV struck his squad car during a traffic stop Sunday night in Hinckley. Illinois State Police Lt. Brian Windle said Noelani Mesubed, 30, of Aurora, was driving a 2006 Chevrolet SUV east on Route 30 near Pritchard Road around 11:30 p.m. Sunday. Windle said Mesubed told police a car was traveling west on Route 30 as she approached the deputy in his squad car performing a traffic stop. “She panicked and jerked her car to the right, striking the back of the squad,” Windle said. Police are not disclosing the deputy’s name, but said the deputy was taken to Kishwaukee Hospital for minor injuries and released. No one in Mesubed’s car was injured, according to police. Mesubed was cited for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle, also known as Scott’s law, Windle said.

Lt. Col. Christopher Clay Featured speaker at Sycamore service children.” Every year, Warber decorates his brother’s and mother’s graves, which are side-by-side in Sycamore’s Elmwood Cemetery.

A parade to Elmwood Cemetery followed the service at the Sycamore Veterans Home. There, a crowd gathered for a ceremony with commanders from area veteran organizations. Among the rituals was a flag folding ceremony performed by local Boy Scouts, including 11-year-old Justin Blanken of Sycamore. “It made me think of everybody who risked their lives for us,” said Blanken, whose grandfathers served in Vietnam. Steve Waltz, a Vietnam veteran and commander of United Veterans Post No. 1, asked that the sentiments from the day be carried throughout the year. “Let us honor them always and not just on Memorial Day,” Waltz said.

Home-grown bakery expands, moves to Genoa By ANDREA AZZO aazzo@shawmedia.com

Andrea Azzo – aazzo@shawmedia.com

Latsis Bakery owner John Latsis moves a sheet of cupcakes from the shelves to the store’s glass case for customers to purchase. The family-owned bakery at 401 W. Main St. in Genoa opened Friday.

GENOA – Nicole and John Latsis have officially moved their bakery business from the basement of their Sycamore home to downtown Genoa. Latsis Bakery, 401 W. Main St., Genoa, opened Friday after plans to open earlier this year were halted because of plumbing additions and updating the building. “It’s amazing,” said Nicole Latsis, John’s wife and cake decorator. “He’s been waiting for a kitchen like this forever.” The bakery, located at the former Cash4Gold store, sells pastry treats as well as sandwiches, salads and oatmeal. They make cakes for all occasions, including weddings, baby showers and quinceaneras. The business started about six years ago in the couple’s Sycamore home after friends and the family promoted it through word of mouth.

Know more n What: Latsis Bakery n Address: 401 W. Main St., Genoa n Hours (tentative): 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday n Phone: 815-784-4334 n Website: www.facebook.com/ latsisbakery “I really enjoy what I’m doing,” John Latsis said. “I have a lot of passion for it.” Customers can order baked goods in person, by email at orders@latsisbakery.com or online at www.facebook.com/ latsisbakery. They also now can order a single cupcake. Previously, they had to buy them by the dozen. “This way, people can stop by, pick it up and enjoy it,” Nicole Latsis said. The bakery uses fondant icing for its specialty cakes and cupcakes. Commonly mentioned in TLC’s “Cake Boss,”

fondant is used to make pastry treats stand out. “We have amazing cakes you can’t find anywhere else,” Nicole Latsis said. “Other bakeries don’t even attempt the things we do.” Nicole Latsis, who has worked in restaurants and in customer service in the past, said her favorite cake she’s worked on was a “The Walking Dead” themed cake with green zombie hands clawing their way out of the middle of the cake. A picture of that cake is on display at the shop. About five family employees will help man the store on a daily basis. Even though the business is now moved and open, John Latsis knows there’s still a lot of work to do. “The bulk of the work is still ahead,” he said. He’ll also need to get used to the fact he has to drive to work now rather than taking a short trip down the stairs. “Now it’s like, all right. I’ve got to be here,” he said.

Rain or shine, there is always something to do in DeKalb County I think everyone would agree that we’ve had a rough winter and an almost nonexistent spring. That being said, we’ve also had opportunities pass us by while we stop to complain about something that we cannot control … the weather. This is something that I’m guilty of, too. With the busy schedules that we all have, we often focus on getting through the day instead of enjoying the day. Each community has its own unique things to offer and there is a tendency to think that these will always

CHAMBER VIEW Matt Duffy be there to do tomorrow or another day down the road. Most of us cannot just do exactly what we want to on any given day, but we can all make sure that we do at least something that we really enjoy or have been meaning to do. A difficult day at work, school or home can be made a lot better by going for a bike ride or walk, catching up

with an old friend, enjoying a good book, hitting some golf balls, enjoying some local flavor or taking a class doing something that you enjoy. All of us can come up with a laundry list of excuses on why we can’t do something. The hard part is making the time to do something today to enjoy the day. My challenge to you is to enjoy each day for what it has to offer. If it’s raining outside, go shopping at some great local stores in downtown DeKalb, catch a show at Stage Coach Players or the Egyptian Theatre, explore

Now for the solar vortex

End crony capitalism, limit tax breaks for rich Gummint don’t work good. That conclusion, often that inelegantly expressed, seems to be more and more common, not only in the United States but around the world. It is certainly the verdict of John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge in their new book “The Fourth Revolution: The Global Race to Reinvent the State,” although expressed, as you might expect from the editor and business editor of the Economist, in far more urbane language. Their thesis is that the state has been reinvented three times in the past 400 years, and needs reinvention once more. The first revolution they name after Thomas Hobbes, the 17th-century philosopher who called for a powerful dictatorial state to protect people from the horrors of all-out war. It was superseded by the 19th century and named after John Stuart Mill, who wanted a small state run by competent civil servants to guarantee individual liberty under the rule of law. That was succeeded by the welfare state, championed a century ago by Sidney and Beatrice Webb, to protect the industrial masses from want and need. Lately the Webb model hasn’t been working so well. Democracy seemed to sweep all before it after the fall of the Berlin Wall. But in this century, democracy has receded in some countries and inspires discontent and even disrespect in most others. Nowhere is that more apparent than in the U.S., which pioneered electoral democracy, and where only 28 percent now say the country is moving in the right direction. The major problems are that democracies in America and elsewhere have been making promises they cannot keep, and they are now running out of money. Social Security and Medicare threaten to squeeze defense and other domestic spending to the lowest shares of the economy in a half-cen-

VIEWS Michael Barone tury. And government can’t do things it used to. The Pentagon, still one of the world’s largest buildings, was built in 18 months in the early 1940s. A small bridge nearby recently took four years to repair. Public sector unions have insulated employees from accountability and imposed unsustainable pension and health care costs to the point that Detroit, once America’s arsenal of democracy, has gone bankrupt. Half its streetlights don’t work. But, as Micklethwait and Wooldridge point out, some places are doing better. Sweden, the welfare state champion of the 20th century, has cut spending and tax rates sharply. The retirement age was raised and unemployment benefits limited. More important, Sweden has improved services by providing for competition. Parents get vouchers for children to attend schools of choice. Private companies manage hospitals. Singapore, under the firm leadership of Lee Kuan Yew, provides an Asian model. It provides health care and pensions comparable to America’s at half the cost, with co-payments at every stage. This Asian model is too authoritarian for Western tastes. In Singapore, Lee’s party wins every election, and Lee’s system is much admired and to some extent copied by obdurately undemocratic China. But, as Micklethwait and Wooldridge argue, nations that are starting out can produce innovations impossible in nations where entrenched interests resist change, just as many countries leapfrogged land-

lines for cellphones. Change is difficult, the authors argue – but also inevitable. One reason is Herbert Stein’s maxim that what can’t go on won’t. The other is technological change. The Webbs’ welfare state is out of sync with the information revolution. Evidence: healthcare.gov. The Obama administration had 42 months to prepare, as long as from Pearl Harbor to victory in Europe. It failed and promised to employ “private sector” methods instead. Obamacare is an attempt to control health care on the assumption that centralized government can make better decisions than citizens can make for themselves. That assumption, perhaps valid a century ago, is being discredited now. “The desire to control everything,” the authors write, “is giving way to pluralism, uniformity to diversity, centralization to localism, opacity to transparency, and immobilisme, or resistance to change, to experimentalism.” “Trim the state and revitalize democracy,” they recommend. Let a SimpsonBowles-type commission revise entitlement law, just as the Federal Reserve handles the money supply. End crony capitalism. Sell off federal land. Limit tax breaks – mortgage and local tax deductions, the non-taxability of employer-provided health insurance – for the affluent. Here’s another idea. Elect a president, unlike this one, able and willing to negotiate solutions on entitlements and taxes.

A sad reflection of the sexist on-screen stories By ANN HORNADAY The Washington Post As deranged manifestos go, the final YouTube video made by suspected Isla Vista, California mass murderer Elliot Rodger was remarkably well-made. Filmed by Rodger in his black BMW, with palm trees in the background and his face bathed in magic-hour key light, the six-minute diatribe – during which he vows revenge on all the women who rejected him and men who were enjoying fun and sex while he was “rotting in loneliness” – might easily have been mistaken for a scene from one of the movies Rodger’s father, Peter Rodger, worked on as a director and cinematographer. Indeed, as important as it is to understand Rodger’s actions within the context of the mental illness he clearly suffered, it’s just as clear that his delusions were inflated, if not created, by the entertainment industry he grew up in. With his florid rhetoric of self-pity, aggression and awkwardly forced “evil laugh,” Rodger resembled a noxious cross between Christian Bale’s slick sociopath in “American

Psycho,” the thwarted womanizer in James Toback’s “The Pick-Up Artist” and every Bond villain in the canon. Watching Rodger bemoan his life of “loneliness, rejection and unfulfilled desire” and his arrogant announcement that he would now prove his own status as “the true alpha male,” he unwittingly expressed the toxic double helix of insecurity and entitlement that comprises Hollywood’s DNA. For generations, mass entertainment has been overwhelmingly controlled by white men, whose escapist fantasies so often revolve around vigilantism and sexual wish-fulfillment (often, if not always, featuring a steady through-line of casual misogyny). Rodger’s rampage may be a function of his own profound distress, but it also shows how a sexist movie monoculture can be toxic for women and men alike. How many students watch outsized fratboy fantasies like “Neighbors” and feel, as Rodger did, unjustly shut out of college life that should be full of “sex and fun and pleasure”? How many men, raised on a steady diet of Judd Apatow comedies in which the shlubby arrested adolescent always gets the

girl, find that those happy endings constantly elude them and conclude that “it’s not fair”? Movies may not reflect reality, but they powerfully condition what we desire, expect and feel we deserve from it. The myths that movies have been selling us become even more palpable at a time when spectators become their own auteurs and stars on YouTube, Instagram and Vine. If our cinematic grammar is one of violence, sexual conquest and macho swagger – thanks to male studio executives who green-light projects according to their own pathetic predilections – no one should be surprised when those impulses take luridly literal form in the culture at large. Part of what makes cinema so potent is the way even its most outlandish characters and narratives burrow into and fuse with our own stories and identities. When the dominant medium of our age – both as art form and industrial practice – is in the hands of one gender, what may start out as harmless escapist fantasies can, through repetition and amplification, become distortions and dangerous lies.

With an oppressive winter behind them, DeKalb County residents no doubt are ready for the glorious days of summer. But with Memorial Day behind us and the summer season now begun, folks would be wise to keep safety in mind. Yes, it’s true that we got through that “polar vortex” thing, but surviving the “solar vortex” – summer – takes some doing, too. The Illinois Department of Public Health has put out a 42-page summer survival guide, available online, that lists as many summer hazards as its experts could find, and how to avoid them. “Summer? No Sweat” takes the reader through how to be safe when swimming at the beach (never swim in stagnant water) or at the pool (there should never be a strong chlorine odor.)

Don’t allow veterans to be pawns in election year The men and women who have served their country in uniform deserve better than delay or denial of the medical care they need and have earned. So it is crucial to get to the bottom of allegations of misconduct at the nation’s veterans hospitals. America’s veterans also deserve not to be treated as so many pawns in election-year gamesmanship – but that sadly is proving to be the case in Congress’ increasingly hyperbolic response. President Barack Obama made his first public comments last week on the growing controversy surrounding allegations that workers at hospitals run by the Department of Veterans Affairs manipulated data or created secret waiting lists to hide the delays that veterans faced before they could see a doctor. Most disturbing have been reports of people who died or were harmed while waiting for appointments and of internal memos detailing techniques to cover up problems. Obama rightly expressed his concern: “I will not stand for it. Not as commander in chief, but also not as an American. None of us should.” He promised that people would be held accountable for any wrongdoing and any deficiencies would be addressed. At the same time, the president properly cautioned that the facts still have yet to be determined; investigation by the VA into a number of facilities and a broader White House review are underway, with preliminary reports expected next week. That the extent of wrongdoing is unclear doesn’t seem to matter much to those more interested in scoring political points. How else to explain the kneejerk calls, mainly by Republicans in the House and Senate, for the ouster of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric K. Shinseki or the ill-advised and punitive legislation aimed at VA workers? Shinseki’s contributions include Army service that saw him losing part of his foot to a land mine in Vietnam and his success as secretary in reducing veteran homelessness and expanding services. But they apparently aren’t as important as the fact that his understated demeanor was derided by a latenight comedian. No doubt the VA has its problems. Delayed treatment has been an issue for decades, and the back-toback wars of Iraq and Afghanistan with their unique set of injuries have created a further strain. But as was made clear in recent testimony to the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, studies have shown that the VA system, which serves almost 6.5 million veterans annually, as a whole outperforms the rest of the health care system by just about every metric. Surveys also show that veterans give VA hospitals and clinics a higher customer satisfaction than patients give private-sector hospitals. It’s important that the current problems be addressed. But they also ought to be kept in context and veterans not made, as the president put it, into “another political football.” The Washington Post

Legendary NIU coach, AD Brigham dies DAILY CHRONICLE

Pistorius starts his psychiatric evaluation JOHANNESBURG – Oscar Pistorius’ murder trial began a new phase Monday when the Olympic athlete arrived at a state psychiatric hospital for a monthlong evaluation whose terms have been described by some as favorable to the double-amputee runner. Pistorius (above), who killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in his home last year, sat in the passenger seat of a black sedan and spoke on a cellphone as he arrived behind a police van at Weskoppies Psychiatric Hospital in Pretoria, the South African capital. The judge who will deliver a verdict in the case asked the hospital to determine if Pistorius had a mental disorder at the time of the shooting, which could affect whether he should be held criminally responsible. Pistorius must arrive by 9 a.m. and can leave by 4 p.m. each weekday, and has weekends off under an order from Judge Thokozile Masipa. Pistorius, who is free on bail, has been staying at the upscale Pretoria home of his uncle. Pistorius’ outpatient status troubles some experts who say 24-hour observation is common in state psychiatric facilities. In the evenings, nursing staff can get additional insights into a patient’s mental state that complement formal questioning and other tests during the day, said the experts. – Wire report

Robert J. Brigham, a World War II veteran whose connection to Northern Illinois University began in 1946 as a football player and wrestler and continued for more than 50 years, including 19 as the Huskies’ athletic director, died Sunday in DeKalb. He was born in Marion, on March 2, 1924, and graduated from Chicago Bowden High School where he played fullback on the football team. He served on submarines in

the U.S. Navy during World War II, seeing action in the Pacific. Brigham, 90, was a part of thousands of NIU student-athletes lives, starting when he returned to the university Robert as an assisBrigham tant football coach in 1955, through 11 seasons as the Huskies’ head wrestling coach and then as the leader

of the athletic department from 1968 to 1987. As AD, he lead NIU from the NCAA’s College Division to the University Division (or major college), oversaw the Huskies’ admission to the Mid-American Conference in 1973, directed improvements to the athletics facilities and saw multiple teams qualify for NCAA championships competition. Many of the decisions Brigham made during his tenure as athletic director at NIU has had a lasting effect.

“Dr. Bob was a man with exceptional integrity and someone whom I considered as an important life-lessons teacher and mentor,” said Cary Groth, who followed in Brigham’s footsteps as NIU’s AD from 1994 to 2004. “He built the foundation for the success that Northern Illinois University intercollegiate athletics enjoys to this day. When I was younger, he afforded me many learning opportunities that helped me throughout my career. He was a great man and some-

one whom I considered a dear friend. God bless Bob and his family.” Northwestern Vice President for Athletics and Recreation Jim Phillips, another of his successors at NIU, said Brigham’s influence extended beyond DeKalb. “We lost an icon, not only of Huskie athletics but the entire world of intercollegiate sport,” Phillips said. “Dr. Brigham was a pioneer and will be so deeply missed by all

Cogs and G-K moves on to the regional semifinals with a 3-1 victory Monday afternoon. Huffman scattered five hits and allowed one run, while striking out 10 Whip-Purs. “It was probably one of my better games. It was hot out, and I feel better when it is hot out,” Huffman said. At one point, Huffman retired eight straight batters

during the middle innings. G-K coach Anson Ellis said that he has confidence in everyone in his pitching staff. “With our pitching staff, a two run lead is very nice. We feel confident in our pitching staff,” Ellis said. “Even if we had to make a pitching change, we still felt that we could hold them to under two or three runs.”

The Cogs scored early and gave Huffman some breathing room. Griffin McNeal opened the second inning with a double. After Huffman grounded out, Joe Murray walked. Andrew Caldwell, the next batter, ripped a single to center scoring McNeal. Two batters later, Jake

LOS ANGELES – Jake Muzzin, Marian Gaborik and captain Dustin Brown scored in a dominant first period, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Blackhawks 5-2 Monday night to take a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference final. Muzzin and Drew Doughty each had a goal and an assist, and Jonathan Quick made 22 saves as the Kings moved to the brink of their second trip to the Stanley Cup Final in three seasons with their third straight win over the defending champion Blackhawks. Brandon Saad and Bryan Bickell scored and Corey Crawford stopped 16 shots for

Duke beats Notre Dame to win NCAA lacrosse title BALTIMORE – Two straight NCAA men’s lacrosse championships. Three in the past five years. Eight straight trips to the Final Four, half of which ended in an appearance in the title game. If that’s not a dynasty, what is it? “It’s Duke,” coach John Danowski said Monday, shortly after the Blue Devils claimed another national championship with an 11-9 win over Notre Dame. “The kids who come here, we push them from Day One. But they accept that and want to be something that’s greater than themselves,” Danowski said. “It’s just a mix of tremendous character young men and a place that provides them an opportunity to grow.” The top-seeded Blue Devils (17-3) limited the Irish to one goal over the first 35 minutes, built a six-goal lead in the third quarter and held on.

Powers doubles up at U.S. cycling championships CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Alison Powers is the fastest woman on two wheels. In the U.S., at least. The reigning national criterium champion finished off a sweep at USA Cycling’s signature event Monday, pulling away from the field in the final stretch to win the women’s road race just two days after she captured victory in the time trial. Powers is the first rider to sweep the weekend since Kristin Armstrong in 2006. “To have three national championships all at the same time, that’s unbelievable,” said Powers, who will try to defend her criterium championship in September. – Staff and wire reports

KINGS 5, BLACKHAWKS 2

Shoved to the brink By GREG BEACHAM The Associated Press

Game 5 vs. Los Angeles, 7 p.m. Wednesday, NBCSN, AM-720 the Blackhawks, who didn’t get rolling until they trailed 4-0 late in the second period. One year after Los Angeles lost the conference finals in five games to Chicago, the Kings have their own chance to close it out in five. Game 5 is Wednesday in Chicago. Tanner Pearson added an empty-net goal for the Kings, who have been to the NHL finals just twice in franchise history, winning their only title in 2012.

Two days after the Kings gritted out a 4-3 victory over Chicago in Game 3, they won again at Staples Center by scoring three goals on six shots in the first 16 minutes, capping an incredible threegame offensive performance by the lowest-scoring NHL team to make the postseason. After trailing 2-0 late in the second period of Game 2, Los Angeles scored 13 goals in less than 100 minutes. After Muzzin scored on a power play and Gaborik added his 10th goal of the postseason, Brown banged a puck into an empty net for a 3-0 lead in Game 4, setting off multiple standing ovations from their delirious fans. The Blackhawks shuffled their lineup after two poor

offensive performances, beginning Game 4 with captain Jonathan Toews centering Bickell and Patrick Kane, who still doesn’t have a goal in the series. Last year, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville teamed Toews with Kane – the 2013 Conn Smythe Trophy winner – when his club fell into a 3-1 series hole against Detroit in the second round. The Blackhawks escaped that deficit on the way to their second Stanley Cup title in four years, but the Kings are an entirely different postseason challenge. The Kings committed two offensive-zone penalties early in Game 4, but the Hawks’ power play remained inept.

WHITE SOX 6, INDIANS 2

CUBS 8, GIANTS 4

Samardzija finally Viciedo leads charge earns first victory as Sox beat Indians By JOHN JACKSON By ANTONIO GONZALEZ The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO – Drenched and reeking of the cheap beer his teammates sprayed on him, Jeff Samardzija stood at his locker soaking in a long-awaited win. “I smell great,” Samardzija said, smiling. “I’d rather just drink the beer than them pour it on me.” Samardzija struck out Jeff a season-high Samardzija 10 for his first victory since last August, leading the Cubs past the San Francisco Giants 8-4 on Monday. Samardzija (1-4) allowed six hits and walked none in seven-plus innings. He also had an RBI double during a three-run fourth to help snap his 16-start winless streak. The right-hander entered with six no-decisions in his first 10 outings this year de-

Next at San Francisco, 9:15 p.m. today, CSN, AM-720 spite leading the majors with a 1.46 ERA. The Cubs had lost nine of Samardzija’s first 10 starts. “I think it’s a relief for him. Everybody’s wanted him to have a victory,” Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. Nate Schierholtz hit his first home run of the season and Darwin Barney drove in two runs to help the Cubs come back from a 3-1 deficit. Pablo Sandoval homered and drove in three runs for the Giants, who had won four in a row. Sandoval has five home runs and 12 RBIs in his last eight games. Yusmeiro Petit (3-2) gave up four runs and six hits in five innings while filling in for injured starter Matt Cain, who was scratched after exiting his last outing with a strained right hamstring.

The Associated Press CHICAGO – While the White Sox await the return of injured slugger Jose Abreu, Dayan Viciedo is doing his part to make up for the missing power. Viciedo hit a long three-run homer, Conor Gillaspie collected four more hits and the White Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 6-2 on Monday. Abreu, who is out with a left ankle injury, took 25 grounders and played soft toss before the game. He also hit 30 balls off a tee. The slugger is expected to be activated from the 15-day disabled list when he is eligible on June 2. Viciedo went 2 for 4 for his first multihit game since May 19 at Kansas City. He said the bond between the two Cuban players has been beneficial for both sides. “We have a great relationship,” he said through an interpreter. “There are some things he has mentioned to me and I give him advice as well. It goes both ways. Knowing each other for years and then being here together definitely helps.”

Next vs. Cleveland, 6:10 p.m. today, WCIU AM-670

Gillaspie went 4 for 4, scored twice and drove in a run. He became the first White Sox player to hit three doubles in a single game since Paul Konerko on May 26, 2012, against the Indians. Viciedo connected in the third inning against Josh Tomlin as the Sox improved to 5-3 this year against Cleveland. Mike Aviles, Michael Brantley and Ryan Raburn had two hits apiece for the Indians, who have dropped three of four. Brantley and Raburn each drove in a run. Cleveland third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall committed a costly error in the third inning, allowing Marcus Semien to reach. Gillaspie then singled to put runners on first and second before Viciedo drove a 1-2 pitch over the wall in left for his fifth homer, giving the Sox a 3-1 lead.

Former Huskies colleagues remember Brigham • NIU Continued from page B1 who had the pleasure of meeting him.” Current NIU Associate Vice President and Director of Athletics Sean Frazier is well aware of Brigham’s many contributions and expressed thanks and condolences on behalf of the current admin-

istration. “Although I never had the honor to know Dr. Brigham personally, the legacy he left at NIU will never be forgotten,” Frazier said. “He is one of the true giants in Huskie Athletics history, and we are truly thankful for his lifelong devotion to NIU and his many, many contributions. My wife Rosa and I and the entire Huskie Family send our thoughts

and prayers to the Brigham family today.” NIU Hall of Fame coaches, many of whom Brigham hired and mentored, marveled at his loyalty and lasting contributions to the university. “Bob Brigham was a man who dedicated his whole life to Northern Illinois University. You don’t see that anymore,” said former NIU head football coach Joe Novak, who

knew Brigham as an assistant coach and defensive coordinator for the Huskies in the early 1980s. “Not only was Dr. Brigham an outstanding teaching colleague, coach, and administrator, his contributions to the modern era of NIU intercollegiate athletics were invaluable,” said former NIU men’s gymnastics coach Hubert Dunn.

By PETE IACOBELLI The Associated Press CONCORD, N.C. – Jimmie Johnson’s run at another Sprint Cup title is on and could bring him a piece of NASCAR history. Johnson’s victory in the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday night all but locked him into the new, expanded championship Chase format. If the 38-yearold Johnson pulls it off, it’ll be his seventh series crown to tie the NASCAR mark shared by Richard Petty and the late Dale Earnhardt. NASCAR leaders changed the emphasis in qualifying, putting more of a premium on wins over the steadiness of points racing. That’s led to a flurry of drivers taking the checkered flag – 10 of them through 12 races – all gleefully celebrating their near-assured spot in the 10-race

championship run at the end. Johnson had been on the outside of that until his record-breaking seventh career win at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He outlasted second-place Kevin Harvick and Matt Kenseth in third to pick up his fourth victory all-time in NASCAR’s longest race. “The first goal is to make the Chase,” Johnson said. “You want to win races at the end of the season.” Few had done that better when it counts than Johnson. He’s collected 14 Chase victories in his six title runs, including a pair last season that led him to title No. 6. It’s a recipe, combined with the No. 48’s typically solid performance, Johnson was certain would prevail no matter how many outside the race shop raised questions. “Of course, we want to win early and often,” John-

son said. “But we were holding steady in championship points. In my opinion, I don’t believe there will be 16 different winners. “I felt like a strong championship points position would get us into the first phase of the Chase,” he added. “Granted, tonight simplifies things.” And gives crew chief Chad Knaus the ability to take a few chances to prepare for the playoffs the rest of the season. Not that he has to as the team approaches a stretch of tracks where they know success. Next week comes Dover, where Johnson owns a record eight victories, then Pocono where Johnson’s won three times. When Johnson broke through for his first crown in 2006, he and Knaus used the formula to add four more in one of the series’ most dominant stretches. After John-

son finished sixth in 2011 and third in 2012, he was back on top last season and moved one step closer to the record with two drivers who were part of NASCAR’s first Hall of Fame class five years ago. Johnson, who had a Hall of Fame vote as Sprint Cup champion, isn’t thinking much about that yet. The 38-year-old star is eager to build on his dominant showing in Charlotte. Johnson took his first pole of the season Thursday and was strong in practice Saturday. He led 165 of the 400 laps, proving his strength at the start before settling into the rhythm of NASCAR’s long, long night. Johnson led 10 different times, including a final time with nine laps left when he swept past Kenseth in Turn 4 and was never pressured on his way to the checkered flag.

NBA PLAYOFFS: HEAT 102, PACERS 90

Heat take charge of East finals By TIM REYNOLDS The Associated Press MIAMI – LeBron James had 32 points and 10 rebounds, Chris Bosh added 25 points and the Miami Heat moved one win away from a return trip to the NBA Finals with a 102-90 win over the Indiana Pacers on Monday night. Dwyane Wade scored 15 points for the Heat, who have won three of the first four games in the Eastern Conference finals. They can win the East for a fourth straight season with a win at Indiana on Wednesday night. Miami led wire-to-wire, opening up as much as a 23-point lead in the final quarter. Paul George scored 23 points and David West added 20 points and 12 rebounds for the Pacers, who got 15 points from George Hill. But Lance Stephenson was held to nine and Roy Hibbert was scoreless in 22 minutes for Indiana. The Pacers won two elimination games in the first round against Atlanta, and need to win three more if their yearlong plan of topping Miami as kings of the East is going to become reality. The odds are obviously stacked against them. When holding a 3-1 lead, Miami is 8-0 in Game 5s over the past four postseasons. Much as he did Sunday, Indiana coach Frank Vogel used the big brother-little brother analogy with his team, trying any way to urge the Pacers to break through against the team that has ended their season in each of the past two years. “He’s got to make a decision at some point in his life, that no matter what, we’re not going to lose this fight any-

more,” Vogel said, likening the Pacers to the little brother in that scenario. “We’re at that point.” The fight isn’t over. But it was awfully one-sided for long stretches of Game 4. “You can never get too high, you can never get too low in the postseason,” James said. “You’ve got to stay evenkeeled. You got to try to get better every single day, every single game improve. “When you do that and you go out and play the type of game that you’re capable of playing, you can be satisfied with the results and that’s what we’ve built over the years.” Miami outscored Indiana 31-20 in the third quarter and increased the lead to 23 in the fourth before the Pacers used a 15-3 run to make things rather interesting. Stephenson had a layup with 3:20 left that would have gotten Indiana within nine – but it was waved off after he was called for fouling Wade on his way to the basket. Stephenson scored with 1:31 left to make it 99-90, but James snuffed out any comeback hopes right there. His three-point play nine seconds later pushed the lead back to 12, and the Heat were moments away from a 3-1 lead. Miami was without Chris Andersen, inactive because of a bruised left thigh. The Heat also tweaked their starting lineup, with Rashard Lewis in and Udonis Haslem out. “We have high-quality NBA professionals on our team that can sit all year and when their number is called they can come in and produce,” James said. Bosh scored the game’s

• BARBS Continued from page B1 about one player, but if you are really good at defending, it is a full on team effort,” said Rouse. “We spend a whole lot of time working on defending.” With most of the starters being upperclassman, coach Rouse was not surprised by the personnel that he had on this squad. But, he was surprised by how well the team as a whole came together. “I am surprised how well they jelled together. Sometimes, you have a group of kids, especially when you

have seniors and some younger kids, you worry about how they are going to get along,” Rouse said. “They have done a great job working through those issues and coming together as a team.” Tonight’s game will be the first sectional game under Rouse. If the Barbs’ defense can hold up like it has all season long, there is always that chance to win games. “As long as we keep up the work up top, like we have been doing in our last games,” Frye said, “If we keep doing that, our defense is going to hold strong and as long as we work together, I think we will do pretty good.”

He had scored exactly nine points in each of the first three games of these East finals and was held under 10 points in each of his last seven playoff games against Indiana. But he came out flying, and probably not coincidentally, the Heat finally had a good start. “I felt that was going to happen today,” James said. “I told him he [was] going to have a great game, and we got off to a fast start because of him.” They won the first quarter for the first time in the series, going up 27-19 and helped in part by a late 3-pointer from Shane Battier – with replays showing Vogel moved down the sideline toward the Heat forward as he shot from near the Indiana bench. Nothing was to Indiana’s

liking. Hibbert and Stephenson combined for zero points and six fouls in the half. The Heat didn’t have a turnover until the second quarter. Miami shot 10 more free throws in the half. Bosh and James combined for 32 points. And despite it all, the Pacers were down only 49-44 at halftime. After getting hand-checked eight times by Hill on a play late in the half, James went down the lane for a reverse dunk while getting fouled to put Miami up by 10. But the Pacers answered, a 3-pointer by George just before the break getting them within five and sealing a half that could have been much worse. If there was any doubt, Miami erased it quickly after halftime. James scored five points in a 7-0 spurt to open the second half, and the Heat were on their way.

• COGS Continued from page B1 Langford reached on an error and Murray scored to give G-K an early lead. Huffman said it was easier to pitch after getting that lead. “Once you get a lead, you just feel better and you loosen up. Relax and throw, and I felt better with the lead,” said Huffman. G-K scored its third run in the fifth inning. Tommy Hansen led off the inning with an

infield single and eventually scored on a McNeal double. Huffman’s only run allowed was unearned in the top of the seventh. “We made some mistakes, but there were mistakes we came right back on the next play,” said Ellis. “Defensively, we had an error here or there, but offensively, we put the ball in play real well and our pitching was outstanding.” The Cogs will play Sycamore at 4 p.m. Wednesday in the Hampshire Regional Semifinal.

FRENCH OPEN

Australian champ Wawrinka stunned The Associated Press PARIS – The positive vibes and big-deal victories began for Stan Wawrinka at last year’s U.S. Open, back when he still went by “Stanislas,” and picked up steam at this year’s Australian Open, where he earned the right to forever be called “major champion.” And yet all of that seemed so far away late Monday at the French Open as dusk approached – and defeat became apparent – in Wawrinka’s first Grand Slam match since winning his first major title. Surprisingly, Wawrinka looked listless. More stunningly, he looked very little like a guy who was seeded No. 3 behind Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic and proclaimed him-

self “one of the favorites” just a few days earlier. In by far the biggest development of the tournament’s first two days, Wawrinka lost in the first round at Roland Garros with a 6-4, 5-7, 6-2, 6-0 defeat to 41stranked Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain. “I was trying to find my game, trying ... to be aggressive, trying to find anything. And I didn’t,” said Wawrinka, whose trademark one-handed backhanded was off-target throughout. “I was completely flat.” He is the first Australian Open champ to exit in the first round of that year’s French Open since Petr Korda in 1998. Garcia-Lopez has never been past the third round at a major. During a pre-tournament

news conference Friday, Wawrinka spoke about deriving confidence from his recent spate of success. Long in the shadow of Roger Federer, his Swiss Davis Cup and Olympic teammate, not to mention good friend, Wawrinka reached his first major semifinal in New York last September, beating defending champion Andy Murray before losing a five-setter to Djokovic. In January, Wawrinka topped Nadal in the Australian Open final. Boosting his clay-court bona fides heading to Paris, Wawrinka defeated Federer in April’s final at the Monte Carlo Masters. While he’s never been beyond the quarterfinals at the French Open, Wawrinka seemed primed to do so.

Instead, he lost in the first round in Paris for the first time since 2006, when he was only 21. “I need to put the puzzle back together, but differently than in the past,” Wawrinka said, “because now – after winning a Grand Slam, [Monte Carlo], being No. 3 in the world – everything is different.” Wawrinka – who recently told the ATP he’d rather go by the shortened version of his first name – finished with 62 unforced errors, 34 more than Garcia-Lopez. “I think what made him lose is he was not very strong mentally – and I was,” said Garcia-Lopez, who thought the match would be suspended because of impending darkness; there are no artificial lights on French Open courts.

ADVICE & PUZZLES

Tuesday, May 27, 2014 • Page B5

HIV casts shadow on budding romance Dear Abby: I’m a 32-year-old woman who is HIV-positive. My colleague – who is unaware of my status – recently introduced me to a relative of hers who is also lonely and looking for someone to settle down with. We “clicked” and seem to complement each other in every way, although we haven’t had any sexual encounter. My fear is, how do I disclose my status without being rejected? He seems to have big plans for us, which include settling down and having kids in the future. I am also worried that he might be angry with my colleague and not believe that she is unaware of my status. Please help me get out of this dilemma. – In A Spot in South

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips Africa

Dear In A Spot: I’ll try, but there are no guarantees. Much depends upon the strength of this man’s feelings for you. It is very important that you have a frank discussion with him before the relationship goes any further. The fact that you are HIV-positive may be problematic, but it does not mean you cannot have a family together if you wish in the future. Medications and other medical interventions can help keep the virus from being transmitted to your children,

and condoms can protect your partner. If you are upfront about your status, the chances are better that he will believe you when you tell him his relative was not aware that you have HIV when you were introduced. In a case like this, honesty is the best policy. Dear Abby: I have three grown sons, all educated, married and successful. Their wives are the daughters I never had, and I treasure them and their children. I’m blessed with three perfect grandchildren under the age of 5. The problem is my sons. Although I raised them carefully with love, they are like teenagers. They constantly denigrate and fight with each

other, and measure my time with them on a competitive scale. I no longer want to be involved with their bickering. Their dad, from whom I am separated, is not involved. This has created a sad cloud in my otherwise sunny life. I need some advice. – Tied In Knots in Indianapolis Dear Tied In Knots: Have you told your sons how uncomfortable their sibling quibbling makes you? If you haven’t, you should. And if that doesn’t improve the situation, I suggest you see them separately. And if that causes problems, please don’t make it YOUR problem. Dear Abby: Over the past 10 years or so, I have noticed a vast increase in people who talk while they are yawning.

These “yawn-talkers” are not only rude, but also almost impossible to understand. I wouldn’t normally care, except that a lot of people do it where I work. Is it OK to tell them to stop yawn-talking? Or would I be the rude one in the scenario? – Wide Awake in Pennsylvania Dear Wide Awake: It wouldn’t be rude to ask someone to repeat the statement because you were unable to understand what the person was trying to say. And, by the way, polite folks cover their mouths when they yawn to avoid spraying saliva on the person in front of them.

Inadequate sleep is one consequence of RLS Dear Dr. K: My doctor says I have restless leg syndrome. What is it, and how is it treated? Dear Reader: Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a brain and nervous system disorder that causes uncomfortable sensations in the legs. The discomfort is usually accompanied by an overwhelming urge to move the legs. Doing so can temporarily relieve the discomfort. The odd sensations are usually worst below the knees and usually felt in both legs. In people with more severe symptoms, similar sensations can affect the arms. The uncomfortable sensations caused by RLS are worse during periods of rest, especially just before sleeping or during sleep. My patients with this condition have used different words to

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff describe the sensations that they feel in their legs. Sometimes they simply describe “pains” in their legs. Often they use more colorful words: “tingling,” “prickly,” “like something’s crawling on me,” “like little worms are wriggling underneath my skin,” “like something is pulling at my skin.” Because RLS symptoms are worse at night – or, in many cases, occur only at night – sleep deprivation can be a major problem for people with RLS. Symptoms may make it difficult to fall asleep, or they may compel a person to get in and out of bed many times. Even asleep, patients

typically shift position every 15 to 30 minutes. During the day, symptoms are worse when sitting still. The condition can make it difficult to take car or plane trips, enjoy a movie or even hold a desk job. RLS is present more often in people with certain conditions. At the top of the list is iron deficiency. Kidney disease, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, varicose veins in the legs and Parkinson’s disease are also on the list. Alcohol, nicotine and caffeine can aggravate the condition. So can several medications; the SSRI anti-depressants, amitriptyline and anti-psychotic medicines may be the most common culprits. Treatment depends on the severity of symptoms. For mild symptoms, exercising, stretching, doing knee

bends or massaging your legs can help. Some people get temporary relief by taking a hot bath or applying cold or warm compresses to the legs. Lifestyle changes also may help. Try to eat a balanced diet. Avoid caffeine, alcohol and cigarette smoking. Iron supplements may also help, even if you don’t have an iron deficiency. Many experts also recommend mentally challenging activities, such as crossword puzzles or video games, to reduce symptoms (perhaps by distraction). A number of medications, taken individually or in combination, can help relieve symptoms: • Dopaminergic agents. These drugs relieve discomfort and improve sleep quality. • Benzodiazepines. These

sedatives improve sleep quality. • Anti-convulsants. These medicines are especially useful in patients who experience pain. • Opioids. These narcotic drugs are used to relieve pain and suppress RLS in people with severe, unrelenting symptoms that do not respond to other treatments. They can be habit-forming. You may not have heard about RLS until you were diagnosed with it. Lots of my patients haven’t. However, surveys find that it may affect 5 to 10 percent of the adult population. Often it has not been diagnosed: Either people don’t tell their doctor about it, or the doctor doesn’t make the diagnosis.

My former teacher is a super human being Dr. Wallace: I’m a 16-yearold sophomore in high school and I’d like to comment on the advice you gave a girl who, after graduating, wanted to ask a former teacher for a date. You advised her not to. I was shocked at your response. Ever since I was in seventh grade I’ve had a crush on a certain teacher. My mother told me that I would forget all about him when I got into high school and started dating. Well, I’m in high school now and I’ve dated guys my

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace own age, but my crush on this teacher has grown into a full-fledged love. I still see him often and we discuss many things. When I graduate from high school I plan to have a relationship with this former teacher. And why not? He is a super human being. He is single and I’m sure he would accept my invitation.

TODAY – Believe in yourself. Giving in to self-doubt will frustrate you and delay your progress. Your goals may seem unattainable at the moment, but as the year unfolds, you will find a way to accomplish them and more. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – You may be missing some key information. Appearances can be deceiving. Refrain from making an important decision until you have all the relevant details. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Gain some insight about who you and your associates are. Start a dialogue about your past, and urge others to share theirs as well. You could learn something quite interesting. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Finding the right balance can be difficult. Look for the best way to manage your time effectively so you don’t fall behind. Being too proud to ask for help will be your downfall. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Someone you care deeply about needs attention. Make an effort to show gratitude and affection. Planning a short vacation or improving your living quarters should be considered. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – If something has been bothering you, take action. Get professional advice or consider taking a break from whatever is causing you stress. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – It’s time to move forward in your personal life. Face up to emotional issues and decide what is right for you. Reconnect with an old friend and start over. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Check out an opportunity to advance from your current position. Even if it offers less in the initial stages, you’ll move ahead in the long run. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – A lot of favorable attention will come your way today. Your talent and charm are a winning combination. A decision that you’ve been avoiding can be dealt with now. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – You will need to make an extra effort to get along with others today. Use tact and show patience with someone who is feeling sensitive and insecure. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Get together with someone you love for an enjoyable outing. Be honest about the way you feel. Open communication will help smooth any difficulties you have with someone. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Work changes are imminent. This is a good time to go for interviews, or pursue a more lucrative position. You may consider starting your own business. Be prepared to make some cash. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – You may be caught in an emotional whirlwind. If you find matters too confusing at the moment, back away from the situation temporarily to give yourself time to sort out your feelings.

I saw a television program that featured students who, after graduation, married a teacher they had in high school. They were happily married and loved each other very much. The student was always a female and the teacher was male. In some cases the teacher was only five years older than the student he married. Dr. Wallace, aren’t you aware that true love conquers all? – Nameless, Anaheim, California Nameless: Certain television programs seek high rat-

ings by producing programs that are highly controversial or that dwell on sensationalism to invite viewers to tune in. The mere fact that the program dealt with this issue tells me that the marriage of former students and their teachers is not a normal occurrence and that it is highly controversial. It’s interesting to note that all the former students were females. Teachers have a moral obligation not to get involved romantically with their students, and those who do are subject to termination.

When a teacher gets involved romantically with a former student who has left high school, no action by school authorities can be taken, but the teaching profession still frowns upon this type of relationship. I’m also aware that some students mistakenly take a teacher’s concern for them as a signal that romance is forthcoming. That could very well be the case with your former teacher.

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Do you finesse or play high? We are looking at situations in which third hand should or should not follow the “third-hand high” mantra. Which is right here? South is in four hearts. West leads a fourth-highest diamond two. After dummy plays low, should East put in his nine or rise with the king? North knew that his hand was a tad strong for a fourheart “weak freak” raise, but he knew that it was unlikely his side had a slam, and he was worried that the opponents might be able to do well in spades. East should work out who has what in diamonds. He knows that South has the ace, because West would not have led a diamond away from the ace. And South presumably has three diamonds. West probably has the queen, and might have the 10 as well. (If West had started with 10-high diamonds, he likely would have led from a stronger suit.) However, the key point is that if East plays his king, declarer must get two diamond tricks: his ace and, later, dummy’s jack. But if East puts in his nine, perhaps he can hold South to one diamond winner. Yes, West will be momentarily misled about the diamond position, but East will clarify when in with his heart king, cashing the diamond king and playing another round of the suit. You can see that in this layout, playing the diamond nine is critical. It allows the defenders to take one heart, two diamonds and one club. The usual rule is: When dummy has one honor, third hand holds a higher honor, and dummy plays low, third hand saves his honor when he can insert a nine or higher.
