ST. CHARLES – After 23 years, Charlestowne Mall is headed for a new beginning. The Krausz Companies Inc. bought the mall in November for more than $9.5 million. The company plans to redevelop the site into The Quad St. Charles. The mall, which is about 27 miles from downtown DeKalb, has been in decline since its heyday in the 1990s. The mall’s new owners hope to reverse that trend and attract more customers from communities including DeKalb and Sycamore by giving the shopping center a new look and new options.

By ANDREA AZZO aazzo@shawmedia.com DeKALB – DeKalb resident Laquanda Hernet is still learning how to be a better parent to her 4-year-old son, Coreon, after spending time in jail and struggling with alcoholism. Hernet has been free since Dec. 13 after having been arrested on a charge of aggravated driving under the influence. She is living at Hope Haven in DeKalb, and using the skills she has learned at the DeKalb County Jail’s parenting class and the county’s drug court program for better structure. “I don’t get mad like I used to,” Hernet said. “I

The first phase of the mall redevelopment will focus on completing exterior work to the mall building. The developer also is actively recruiting new tenants and finalizing architectural designs, said Russell Colby, St. Charles’ planning division manager. Retailers look at infrastructure differently than before, said Jay Krigsman, Krausz Companies executive vice president. This means Krausz has to revamp the mall facility, which originally opened in 1991, to meet the needs of modern businesses. “I think our plan rendering does a good job of solving those problems,” Krigsman said.

Work starts slow Demolition and reconstruction work could begin as early as July, St. Charles officials said. No firm groundbreaking date has been set since the passing of an initial April target date.

Obama unveils controversial plan to cap carbon emissions The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Taking aim at global warming, President Barack Obama introduced a politically charged plan Monday to order big and lasting cuts in the pollution discharged by America’s power plants. But the plan, although ambitious in scope, wouldn’t be fully realized until long after Obama’s successor took office and would generate only modest progress worldwide. Obama’s proposal to force a 30 percent cut in carbon dioxide emissions, by the year 2030

from 2005 levels, drew immediate scorn from Republicans, industry groups and even a few Democrats who are facing tough re-election campaigns in energy-dependent states. Environmental activists were split, with some hailing the plan and others calling it insufficiently strict to prevent the worst effects of global warming. In all likelihood, the plan marks one of the most significant steps Obama will take to shape the country he governs during his final years in office. Stymied by Congress on nearly every front, Obama has turned

to actions he can take on his own, but has found limited means to effect the type of sweeping change he has envisioned in his two campaigns. The effort would cost up to $8.8 billion a n n u a l l y i n President 2030, the EPA Barack projected. But Obama the actual price is impossible to predict until states decide how to reach their targets – a process that will take years.

Obama, in a conference call with public health leaders, sought to head off critics who have argued the plan will kill jobs, drive up power bills and crush the economy in regions of the U.S. “What we’ve seen every time is that these claims are debunked when you actually give workers and businesses the tools and the incentives they need to innovate,” Obama said. Never before has the U.S. sought to restrict carbon dioxide from existing power plants, although Obama’s administration also is pursuing the first

limits on newly built plants. While the plan would push the nation closer to achieving Obama’s pledge to reduce total U.S. emissions by 17 percent by 2020, it still would fall short of the global reductions scientists say are needed to stabilize the planet’s temperature. Connie Hedegard, the European Union’s commissioner for climate change, called the rule “the strongest action ever taken by the U.S. government to fight climate change.” But she also said, “All countries, including the United States, must do even more than what this reduction

trajectory indicates.” Fossil-fueled U.S. power plants account for 6 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions, so even a steep domestic cut affects just a portion worldwide. And even with the new limits, coal plants that churn out carbon dioxide will still provide about 30 percent of U.S. energy, according to predictions by the Environmental Protection Agency, down from about 40 percent today. Power plants are America’s largest source of greenhouse gases, accounting for 38 percent of annual emissions.

Questions linger over POW release The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – The Pentagon concluded in 2010 that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl walked away from his unit, and after an initial flurry of searching the military curbed any high-risk rescue plans. But the U.S. kept pursuing avenues to negotiate his release, recently seeking to fracture the Taliban network by making its leaders fear a faster deal with underlings could prevent the freedom they sought for five of their top officials, American officials told The Associated Press. The U.S. government kept tabs on Bergdahl’s whereabouts with spies, drones and satellites, even as it pursued off-and-on negotiations to get him back over the five years of captivity that ended Saturday. Bergdahl was in stable condition Monday at a U.S. military hospital in Germany, but questions mounted at home over the way his freedom was secured: Five high-level members of the Taliban were released from the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and sent to Qatar. The five, who will have to stay in Qatar for a year before going back to Afghanistan, include former

ministers in the Taliban government, commanders and one man who had direct ties to the late al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden. A U.S. defense official familiar with efforts to free Bergdahl said the U.S. government had been working in recent months to split the Taliban network. Different U.S. agencies had floated several offers to the militants, and the Taliban leadership feared that underlings might cut a quick deal while they were working to free the U.S. Army five detainees at Guantanamo, said the official Sgt. Bowe and a congressional aide, Bergdahl both of whom spoke only on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about efforts to release Bergdahl. There was plenty of criticism about how the deal came about. “Knowing that various lines of effort were presented and still under consideration, none of which involved a disproportionate prisoner exchange, I am concerned by the sudden urgency behind the prisoner swap, given other lines of effort,” said Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Ca-

lif., who has criticized the government effort to seek Bergdahl’s release as disorganized. One current and one former U.S. official said Obama had signed off on a possible prisoner swap. The president spoke to the Qatari emir May 27, and they gave each other assurances about the proposed transfers, said a senior administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the official wasn’t authorized to discuss the deliberations in public. One official briefed on the intelligence said the Taliban also may have been worried about Bergdahl’s health, having been warned the U.S. would react fiercely if he died in captivity. The Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany, which is caring for Bergdahl, said he was suffering from nutritional issues. Bergdahl’s handoff to U.S. special forces in eastern Afghanistan was never going to lead to an uncomplicated yellow-ribbon celebration. The exchange stirred debate over a possibly heightened risk other Americans being snatched as bargaining chips and whether the released detainees would find their way back to the battlefield.

mothers are in jail are more susceptible to toxic stress and trauma. It can significantly change their brain chemistry and create mental health and behavioral problems, said Ann Adalist-Estrin, director of the National Resource Center on Children and Families of the Incarcerated at Rutgers University-Camden. Toxic stress is defined as continuous stress not tied to a singular event such as a car accident or death of a loved one, Adalist-Estrin said. She said the best ways to reduce this stress in young children are for the incarcerated mothers to have a responsible caregiver, tell children the truth about their jail stay and to keep in touch while they’re in jail. “One or two months [without a mother] is a very long time for them,” Adalist-Estrin said. “There can be a lot of lost feelings that can really create harm.” Coreon was with his father when Hernet was in jail and never saw her, limiting their communication to over the phone. Hernet and Coreon’s father share joint custody of their son. When Hernet got out of jail after about 2½months, Coreon was shy at first. Since

The ordinance came from recommendations made by an advisory group of labor, business and nonprofit representatives convened by Murray. After more than four months of discus-

sion, the group presented its plan last month. Last week the Council delayed implementation by a few months and approved a sub-minimum wage for teenagers, a provision opposed by labor representatives. Although some local businesses have come out in support of the measure, a group of restaurant owners oppose it, saying it would force them to scuttle expansion plans, decrease hiring and possibly cut service hours.

Seattle council passes $15 minimum wage SEATTLE – The Seattle City Council unanimously passed an ordinance Monday that gradually increases the minimum wage in the city to $15, which would make it the highest in the nation. The issue has dominated politics in the liberal municipality for months, and a boisterous crowd of mostly labor activists packed the Council chambers for the vote. Mayor Ed Murray, who was elected last year, had promised in his campaign to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. A newly-elected socialist City Council member had pushed the idea as well. “We did it. Workers did this,” said Kshama Sawant, the socialist City Councilmember “We need to continue to build an even more powerful movement.” Councilmember Tom Rasmussen said “Seattle wants to stop the race to the bottom in wages” and address the “widening gap between the rich and the poor.” The measure, which would take effect April 1, 2015, includes a phase-in of the wage increase over several years, with a slower process for small businesses. The plan gives businesses with more than 500 employees nationally at least three years to phase in the increase. Those providing health insurance will have four years to complete the move. Smaller organizations will be given seven years. The International Franchise Association, a Washington, D.C.-based business

then, he’s become very attached. He follows Hernet everywhere, she said. Hernet is cherishing the time she has with Coreon while her charges are pending; she hasn’t thought about the fact that she faces three years in prison if she fails the drug court program. If she successfully finishes the program, the felony aggravated DUI charge will be amended to a misdemeanor. Hernet reads books to her son almost every day, and Coreon gives his mother multiple hugs and kisses while she reads to him. “Our bond is a little bit better,” she said. “Now he tells me more, ‘Mommy, I love you. You’re so nice.’ We spend more time together.” Officials said the chances of mothers going back to jail decrease when they have the necessary support behind them. Ryan Shanahan, senior program associate with Vera Institute of Justice, regularly researches programs aimed toward connecting those in jail with their families, such as allowing more visits to jail. “When people have a strong support network, there are better outcomes while they are incarcerated,” Shanahan said. “They behave better, they follow the rules, they meet expectations.” Kasi Gunderson is trying to follow the rules as a participant in the county’s drug

program. Like Hernet, she was also a regular in the jail parenting program. Gunderson had a minor setback when she was prescribed Tylenol for a toothache and failed her drug test, sending her back to jail. Since being in jail and living at a halfway house, Gunderson has moved back into her Sandwich home and is caring for her 10-year-old son. She does not have full custody of her 8-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son, who are both with their fathers. While she acknowledges she made parenting mistakes as a crack-cocaine addict, Gunderson said she’s learning through her experiences. She is accused of robbing Casey’s General Store in Somonauk in December 2012 with her son’s toy gun, court records show. In unrelated cases, she also was charged with residential burglary and theft. If Gunderson successfully completes the drug court program, the armed robbery charge would be dropped. If she fails, she faces 10 years in prison. Gunderson said the only thing she can do now is be there more often for her children physically, emotionally and mentally. “That’s all I can do: Be more open to their needs and wants,” Gunderson said. “Take it one day at a time.”

D-302 mourns death of 8th-grader

By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI jduchnowski@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Jacob E. Haka and Troy D. Novey figured jumping off a roof and sliding down a tree wouldn’t be that hard. It apparently was easier for one than the other. Police said they did it on a dare, about 2:30 a.m. Sunday. They ended up breaking several limbs on the tree, injuring themselves and Jacob E. Haka racking up two misdemeanor charges each. Haka, 25, of the 400 block of East Lincoln Street in Sycamore, and Novey, 36, Troy D. Novey of the 1300 block of William Street in Sycamore, jumped off a roof of Auto Meter’s building on South California Street in Sycamore, police said. Police arrived after receiving a call about two intoxicated men and found the duo, as well as a couple of limbs that had broken off the city-owned tree, Sycamore police Sgt. Rod Swartzendruber said. Novey declined medical attention, while Haka was taken to Kishwaukee Hospital, where he was treated and released, police said. Both men were charged with criminal damage to property and criminal trespass to land. They each posted $150 bail and are next due in court July 3.

Sycamore will wait to pick new electrical provider By ANDREA AZZO aazzo@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – After reviewing bids for the possibility of entering into a new contract in the city’s electrical aggregation program, Sycamore officials decided Monday to keep waiting. Bids were solicited in April for Sycamore to enter into a contract with an electrical provider before its current contract with First Energy expires in August. The City Council voted Monday to wait until June 16 because the lowest bid they received was at a fixed rate of 7.5 cents a kilowatt hour, just less than ComEd’s rate of 7.6 cents a kilowatt hour. “We had hoped there would be an outlier or one company that was more aggressive,” Sycamore City Manager Brian Gregory said. “That hasn’t proven to be the case.” Electrical rates have gone up in northern Illinois because of an increase in the cost to reserve the power supply in case of higher demand and the harsh winter. The situation in southern and central Illinois is much different, where residents living in Ameren’s territory are seeing a decrease in electricity rates from about 4.8 to about 4.6 cents a kilowatt-hour. Sycamore’s current contract with First Energy has a fixed rate of 4.81 cents a kilowatt hour in effect until Aug. 1, but a Plug In Illinois chart shows their rates have now increased to 7 cents a kilowatt-hour. The city wants to enter into a contract with a company that has an escape clause. This would allow residents to return to the ComEd rate in the event ComEd’s rate is set below the aggregated rate. According to city documents, only one supplier is offering that provision. Sycamore also has committed to entering into a contract with a company that has no early termination fees, which means residents are free to leave the program at any time regardless of what the city decides, city documents show. Sycamore Mayor Ken Mundy said residents need to be aware of the specifics of the contracts should they choose to negotiate with their own energy provider. “That provider could have a one, two or three year commitment,” Mundy said. “While we’re able to opt out and be flexible, other plans negotiated under an individual basis might not have that flexibility.”

Tenant recruiting critical to making mall a regional draw • CHANGES Continued from page A1 That plan includes demolishing the former Sears anchor store in the westernmost part of mall, which has been empty since 2011. Another part of the mall headed for demolition is the food court, located in the central north area on the upper level. The mall’s Charlestowne 18 movie theater will have new entrances created by the removal of the former Sears space. Initial renderings for open areas in the mall show cozy seating areas and fireplaces. Parts of the mall property will be regraded from the current mix of slopes and inclines. This will involve construction work out in the mall’s parking lots, according to the city. The regrading will allow for the option of standalone businesses in outlots around the mall property, Colby said.

Northern Illinois University Alexandra L. Rymarz, 22, of the 4000 block of Broadmoor Circle, Naperville, was charged Friday, May 30, with driving under the influence of alcohol. Noha T. Ransom, 29, of the 900 block of Crane Drive, DeKalb, was charged Sunday, June 1, with disruptive intoxication.

as well as Rockford, Aurora, and elsewhere. The Quad could benefit from having a destination business such as the Apple Store, said Kim Malay, president of the Near-West Neighborhood Association in St. Charles. Malay said the Commons and The Quad St. Charles could benefit each other by providing a broad range of stores. The shopping centers are about 5.5 miles apart. “I do think that unique shopping experience has to happen there to be successful,” Malay said of the mall. “If they do that right, I think [customers] would come in from all directions.”

cal to make the mall a regional draw. In DeKalb County, shoppers have more local options for shoes, clothing, electronics and other shopping-mall staples than they did in the 1990s, and the emphasis on shopping local has grown. If shoppers decide to leave the area, they also have options in the nearby Geneva Commons,

St. Charles needed to provide incentives to launch the mall redevelopment, officials said. Krausz and the city will have a 50-50 split of the future sales tax revenue when the mall relaunches in 2015. Revenue sharing would start at the grand opening and last for 20 years, or until Krausz

receives $20 million in reimbursements, whichever comes first. The $20 million agreement will allow Krausz to make costly updates needed for the redevelopment. There are $12 million in construction costs to regrade, demolish and update the mall, according to the city’s executive summary of the agreement. The developer also estimates the cost of attracting and retaining tenants will be $10 million. The investment required to truly redevelop the mall property would not be justified by the rent that can be collected, especially when The Quad debuts, Krigsman said. Some residents were pleased with the city’s willingness to work with the mall owners, said St. Charles Alderwoman Rita Payleitner. “When I took office, the No. 1 question I would get was, ‘What is the city going to do to help the mall?’ ” Payleitner wrote in an email. “I’m delighted to have an answer [the tax-sharing agreement] that is so well received.”

several years. Her passions in life included a love of all animals, especially her beloved cats, and watching the many birds at her numerous bird feeders. Sarah loved listening to music, and particularly enjoyed the Barb City Stompers of DeKalb. As an avid writer, Sarah wrote a book, “The Improvised Force, Life After a Long Coma,” which told of her journey to her new normal after her recovery from a life-changing accident. She was an expert furniture refinisher and was surrounded with many of her beautiful, antique pieces. Travel was another love. A highlight for Sarah was a trip on the Colorado River with her cousins, Ed and John.

Creative Therapeutic promotes yoga by giving back By ANDREA AZZO aazzo@shawmedia.com

Monica Maschak – mmaschak@shawmedia.com

Mark Mattson (front), Ralph Hannon (left) and Sue Mullins take a yoga class from instructor Allison Johnson (right) at Creative Therapeutics in DeKalb on Saturday. Creative Therapeutics offers free community yoga classes and collects voluntary donations for nonprofit organizations. The next free community class will be from 3 to 4:15 p.m. Sunday. Donations will benefit Friends of DeKalb Library.

DeKALB – Jill Browne, a yoga instructor at Creative Therapeutics in DeKalb, has seen clients lose weight, become more confident and gain strength while taking her class. Browne can even work with people who are recovering from sports injuries or surgeries. Her love of yoga was so strong that last year, she decided to offer classes for free while benefiting nonprofits. “It’s a way to connect with the community,” she said. “It allows the opportunity to give back if they want to.” Creative Therapeutics, 400 E. Hillcrest Drive, DeKalb, will hold a free community yoga class from 3 to 4:15 p.m. Sunday. Any donation will benefit the Friends of DeKalb Public Library, an organization that provides programs, materials and services that are not part of the library’s regular budget. The business chooses a dif-

ferent nonprofit organization to support each time they offer the free class, which is generally held the second Sunday of each month. Organizations that have benefited in the past include Hope Haven and the Pay-It-Forward House in Sycamore. Creative Therapeutics owner Mark Mattson said the instructors are experts in physical therapy. As long as someone gets clearance from their doctor, yoga instructors can work with anyone, Mattson said. “That’s the whole reason we offer yoga and the types of classes,” he said. “You want people to maintain their health, not only to rehabilitate, but to improve their quality of life.”

Besides offering the scheduled free classes, Creative Therapeutics holds yoga classes for members six days a week. They also accept walk-ins at a rate of $15. Those employed by Creative Therapeutics said yoga is an exercise that connects the mind to the body while focusing on breathing. Residents who attend the free class can expect to do basic poses such as the child pose, downward facing dog and some twists, Browne said. “It can be strengthening,” Browne said. “You can gain flexibility and stability so you can feel strong and increase your balance. As we age, it’s important to keep in good shape.” Mattson also practices what he preaches by attending the yoga classes. He said another reason for holding the free classes is to introduce newcomers to yoga who may have pre-conceived notions about what yoga may entail. “We’re big believers in yoga as a practice,” he said. “Anyone can do it.”

Workforce program KishHealth presents Pillar Awards completes first year Workforce development has been a hot topic in Washington, D.C., Springfield, high schools and businesses throughout the nation. Responding to those same concerns, the DeKalb/Ogle Workforce Development Consortium was created and is about to conclude the first year of its Pilot Program. With collaboration between area high schools and local industry, the program has exposed students to a variety of industries with numerous career paths and significant career value. While successes were abundant during the first year, challenges have been identified and will be addressed at an upcoming workshop June 27. Many internship opportunities are throttled by the “18 years of age and older” restriction. Currently, there appears to be some confusion within the employer community regarding the state laws concerning youth in the workplace. Some employers interpret the law to be very restrictive, while others say it is flexible enough to create internships and summer opportunities. We will work toward a definitive statement from appropriate authorities prior to the workshop. Historically, college-bound students are easily identified by teachers and counselors. Less identifiable, our pilot program seeks those students who may want to enter the workforce directly from high school. These students may not have the highest grades, but they have the ideas and innovations of the future. They build, design, work with their hands, troubleshoot, are

DOWDC VIEW Gene Fogle naturally curious and think “outside the box.” Another current trend is to introduce students to careers at elementary school age; research the careers that look interesting in middle school; plot a path to the career and execute it during high school. This sounds like a daunting task, considering that most of us land in a career rather than plan for it. Perhaps another approach is in order. Instead of being specific about the career choice, make an area choice. For example: Suppose I decide that I like media production. Then take classes that relate to media production, but do not specify the job. This eventually opens opportunities in sales, graphic design, machinery repair, digital replication, writing, machine operation and anything that pertains to media production. So you are working and studying in an area that you like, while you are deciding what you can do really well. These are but a few of the questions to be considered and the ideas for exploration. If you have questions or ideas for the DeKalb/Ogle Workforce Development Consortium, contact Gene Fogle, Industrial Workforce coordinator, at gfogle@dcedc.org.

Carson thinks both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars were a mistake; economic pressure and a crash energy-independence project would have worked better. On Syria, he sounds like Obama. Carson calls for straight talk and an end to all political correctness. That sounds appealing, but it doesn’t work in the real world of presidential politics. With a huge, diverse electorate, there’s a premium on stitching together coalitions and finding common ground to get more than 50 percent of the vote. That’s why, over the past century, the U.S. only once elected someone with no electoral experience: Dwight D. Eisenhower, who as the supreme allied commander in World War II demonstrated exceptional political skills. Corporations don’t seek out nonbusiness types to be chief executives, football teams don’t pick coaches who haven’t been associated with the sport, and symphonies don’t select the tone deaf as conductors. Whatever the superficial appeal of the nonpolitician mantra, presidential politics is for politicians.

West’s voters reject economic redistribution The opinion pages, economic journals and liberal websites are atwitter (a-Twitter?) these days over French economist Thomas Piketty’s “Capital in the Twenty-First Century.” Left-wingers cite Piketty’s statistics showing growing wealth inequality in support of Piketty’s policy response, huge taxes on high incomes and accumulated wealth. One suspects that many of his fans have another agenda in mind. They’d like to gull a majority of the 99 percent to vote for parties that would put their friends in control of an engorged state apparatus. There they could stamp out fossil fuels in favor of renewables – and get all those overweight suburbanites out of their vulgar SUVs and into subways, and out of their ticky-tack subdivisions and into gleaming mid-20th century modern high-rises. The only problem is that voters don’t seem interested in centralized direction from the chattering classes. The protest votes around the world are mostly going not to redistributionist parties of the left but to various anti-centralization parties of the right. Current polling points to Republican victories in the 2014 off-year elections, and Pew Research reports that 65 percent want the next president to follow policies different from Barack Obama’s. Our Anglosphere cousins Britain, Canada and Australia all have center-right governments. Then there are last week’s European Union parliament elections. In Britain, the United Kingdom Independence party, which wants out of the EU and tougher limits on immigration, came in first, ahead of

They did it again. For the umpteenth year and counting, Democrats in the General Assembly last week approved a sham of a budget that relies on many of the same gimmicks that have all but bankrupted Illinois. The one-year spending document, passed without Republican support, doesn’t reduce the state’s record spending. It further relies on delaying paying the state’s bills. It borrows money from special funds to pay for operational expenses. And it counts on inflated future revenue projections that may never materialize. The budget also doesn’t account for the declining revenue from the scheduled Jan. 1 rollback of the 67 percent “temporary” income tax hike passed by Democratic lawmakers in January 2011. In his budget address, Gov. Pat Quinn called on lawmakers to make that “temporary” income tax increase For the record permanent. But facing an election in November, many The one-year spending lawmakers didn’t have the document, passed without stomach to renege on their Republican support, 2011 promise that the income doesn’t reduce the state’s tax rate would roll back from record spending. 5 percent to 3.75 percent on individuals, and from 7 percent to 5.25 percent on corporations beginning in 2015. A person with a taxable income of $50,000, would pay $625 more a year in income tax under the higher rate. What all this means is that we’re likely headed for another lame-duck session after the election, during which Democrats again will try to raise taxes with no accountability. The wild card this time is that Quinn faces a serious election challenge from Republican venture capitalist Bruce Rauner, who opposes making the tax increase permanent. But even if Rauner wins, Democrats could still have the numbers to push through a tax hike and override a veto. In the meantime, state government will continue spending more than it can afford as our elected officials further delay in making the tough decisions on spending cuts that needed to be made years ago. The scary thing is, as bad as Illinois is financially now, it still hasn’t reached rock bottom. As hard as it might be to believe, things still can get worse. As long as Quinn and the General Assembly continue down the tax-more-and-spend-more road, we should expect the worst.

The dark world of data mining Many Americans are discovering the hard way that they live in a world of prying eyes. This is the underside of the digital revolution. Tens of millions of people have been harmed by the loss or compromise of their credit card and other personal information. Whether shopping online or in a store, whether using a mobile phone or browsing social media, more snooping goes on than most people realize. The Federal Trade Commission under chairwoman Edith Ramirez has just highlighted one disturbing aspect of this trend in a report about the practices of data brokers. The FTC report follows a similar one published in December by the majority staff of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation. There’s been much outrage at the National Security Agency for collecting domestic telephone metadata. But anyone worried about surveillance ought to pay attention to the scope and nature of data collection in the private sector. For example, the nine data brokers studied by the FTC were not only vacuuming up billions of bits of raw information, but they also were drawing conclusions about consumers based on inferences that may or may not be true. Labeling someone as a pet owner may be innocuous. But there are other categories created by data brokers that can pigeonhole individuals with certain ethnic, income or health labels that may be only partially correct. The FTC found that some companies have identified people as “Biker Enthusiast,” which might draw coupons from a motorcycle dealer, but it could also be a red light for an insurance company. Good data, if properly used, can help prevent fraud and improve offerings to consumers. But what happens if the data collected are wrong? What if a consumer is labeled a higher risk because of a category that is inferred by the data broker but not really true? Most consumers don’t even know about the categories and can’t easily correct mistakes. Vast amounts of facts are being saved by these brokers. Of the nine firms studied, just one broker’s database has information on 1.4 billion consumer transactions and 700 billion aggregated data elements; a second broker’s database covers $1 trillion in consumer transactions. In 1970, Congress passed a law allowing people to keep track of their credit reports. But the law does not cover the collection of consumer data for marketing purposes. An effort at industry self-regulation in the 1990s was short-lived. A new legislative drive is underway to provide consumers with a way to check and correct what’s collected about them by data brokers. In this opaque corner of the digital revolution, the time has come for genuine transparency. The Washington Post

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. – U.S. Bill of Rights, First Amendment

Window for another title still open AP photo

Noah headlines NBA’s all-defensive team The Bulls’ Joakim Noah (pictured, left) and Indiana’s Paul George received the most votes on this year’s NBA all-defensive team, released Monday. Less than two months after a landslide victory in balloting for the league’s defensive player of the year, Noah was the only player to receive more than 100 first-team votes and earn more than 200 points for the team. Noah received 105 of 123 possible votes, while George had 65 votes. The rest of the first team consisted of Clippers guard Chris Paul, Oklahoma City forward Serge Ibaka and Golden State swingman Andre Iguodala. It’s the second consecutive year Noah was chosen to the first team. Four-time league MVP LeBron James and defensive player of the year runner-up Roy Hibbert were both on the second team. Noah dominated on the defensive end this season, joining Andre Drummond of Detroit and Anthony Davis of New Orleans as the only players in the league to average at least 10.0 rebounds, 1.5 blocks and 1.2 steals. Noah finished sixth in the league in rebounding (11.3), 12th in blocks (1.51) and helped the Bulls hold opponents to 43.0 percent field goal shooting, the second-best mark in the league. He also had 1.24 steals a game. George, widely considered one of the league’s best twoway players at age 24, finished fifth in the league in steals (1.89) and was the only player in the NBA to average at least 6.5 rebounds and 1.8 steals. – Wire report

Allen’s presence unmistakable Urlacher’s return to NFL unlikely at 36 By PATRICK FINLEY pfinley@suntimes.com The Brian Urlacher rumors outlived his NFL career by more than a year. More than 53 weeks after the future Hall of Fame linebacker retired from the Bears, a national report Monday linked Urlacher to the AP photo Cowboys, who must replace Bears defensive end Jared Allen (69) and defensive end Comelius the injured Sean Lee.

highly unlikely – he’s 36, and spent the last year playing golf, fishing and serving as a Fox Sports 1 analyst – but his 13 years of pro experience still carries weight. A full season after Urlacher’s departure, the Bears don’t lack for experience – or leadership – on defense. In addition to re-signing cornerbacks Tim Jennings and Charles Tillman and defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff, the Bears added three prominent veterans to rebuild their defensive line during the offseason. Half of Jared Allen’s 10 seasons ended in a Pro Bowl appearance. Fifth-year player Lamarr Houston, added

alongside 28-year-old Willie Young this offseason, served as a Raiders captain last season. “Their presence alone, they’re leaders,” linebacker Lance Briggs said last week after the Bears’ first day of organized team activities, which continue Tuesday at Halas Hall. “They were leaders everywhere they’ve been. “Being here, veterans understand what you have to do, these guys know what they have to do. “They know what their job is, and they’re going to get it done.”

8SPORTS SHORTS Abreu reinstated from DL by White Sox LOS ANGELES – First baseman Jose Abreu has been reinstated from the 15-day disabled list by the White Sox after missing 14 games because of tendinitis in his left ankle. The rookie slugger from Cuba rejoined the club Monday for the start of a three-game series at Dodger Stadium. When he left the lineup, he was leading the majors with 15 home runs and ranked second with 42 RBIs. The Sox were 8-6 in his absence. Abreu set major league rookie records for homers (10), RBIs (32), extra base hits (19) and total bases (71) in April and was selected AL rookie of the month. He takes the roster spot of infielder Marcus Semien, who was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte after Sunday’s game in San Diego.

Marino files concussion lawsuit against NFL PHILADELPHIA – Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino is among the latest group of football players to file a concussion-related lawsuit against the National Football League. The 52-year-old former Miami Dolphins quarterback is one of 15 former players who filed a lawsuit in federal court in Philadelphia last week. Marino and the other 14 plaintiffs join more than 4,800 others who have alleged the NFL misled players about the long-term dangers of concussions. The NFL has denied those claims. The lawsuit doesn’t specify any medical problems suffered by the plaintiffs including Marino, who retired in 1999. It seeks unspecified damages and medical monitoring. The NFL and the original group of players agreed on a $765 million settlement in August. But the settlement was rejected by a federal judge in January.

Gambler said he wasn’t involved in inside trading LAS VEGAS – A Las Vegas gambler being investigated for possible insider trading involving golfer Phil Mickelson and investor Carl Icahn said it’s “preposterous to think” he would be involved in any such activity. Billy Walters issued a statement Monday saying he has never made inside stock market trades. “I am innocent of doing anything wrong. It’s that simple,” Walters said. “Those who know me best, know that it is preposterous to think that it would involve myself in inside trading.” A federal official briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press the FBI and Securities and Exchange Commission are analyzing trades Mickelson and Walters made involving Clorox at the same time Icahn was attempting to take over the company. When Icahn’s intent became public, the stock price jumped. FBI agents approached Mickelson after his opening round last week at the Memorial golf tournament as part of the investigation. Mickelson later said he had done “absolutely nothing wrong.”

Jacobs High School, 2601 Bunker Hill, Algonquin WHEN 4:30 p.m. today HOW THEY GOT HERE DeKalb beat Rockford Jeffereson, 3-2, in Huntley Regional semifinals; beat Huntley, 3-0, in regional final. McHenry beat Grayslake North, 10-0, in McHenry Regional semifinals; beat Fox Lake Grant, 2-1, in regional final. SCOUTING THE WARRIORS After winning a regional title three straight years, the McHenry seniors have played in this game twice before – losing both contests. The Barbs will have to face a top pitcher in junior Kristin Koepke, who has only allowed a single run and six total hits in her two postseason appearances. The Warriors are also looking to win their first sectional title in 12 years. OUTLOOK One or two runs may win this game for either team. Both teams will be throwing good pitchers, and DeKalb’s Katie Kowalski is one of the better hurlers in this sectional. The senior did not allow a run in the regional and was not under much pressure against Huntley in the regional championship – only one Huntley base runner went to third base. Look for both teams to take a few risks on the bases, because base runners may be at a minimum. – Travis Zuellig, sports@daily-chronicle.com

DeKalb’s Morgan Newport prepares to swing in the fourth inning May 2 against Sycamore at Northern Illinois University. DeKalb faces McHenry in the IHSA Class 4A Jacobs Sectional at 4:30 p.m. today.

McHenry beat Grant to advance to sectional game against DeKalb • BARBS Continued from page B2 That opening inning started with a Taylor infield single. After being sacrificed to second, Morgan Newport lined a triple to left field and Taylor scored. Later in the inning with two on, Costliow dropped down a bunt. Newport came in to score and Costliow was safe at first. The Barbs tried another squeeze two batters later, but Sarah Friedlund was thrown out at home. “That was big. We jumped out early,” said Davis. “We pulled off a suicide squeeze that got us a run. I don’t think

the second inning, which was a double by Megan Baczewski. Over the final five innings, Kowalski allowed a total of two runners total. “It is definitely a big sense of relief when we score early. Because I know that my team is on today and we want this win,” Kowalski said. “It was a Katie Kowalski big relief.” The third run the Barbs DeKalb pitcher scored came in the fourth inning when Claire Koertner they were looking for that. We came into score on a Friedlund hadn’t done it that often but we fielder’s choice. The Barbs will play today executed it very nice.” After one inning, DeKalb led in the Algonquin Sectional 2-0 and that was all the run sup- against McHenry. McHenport Kowalski needed. The only ry beat Grant, 2-1, to win the hit Kowalski allowed came in McHenry Regional.

“It is definitely a big sense of relief when we score early. Because I know that my team is on today and we want this win.”

CUBS

Hoyer absolves Renteria, Cubs of responsibility “How we are judged in the end, I really don’t concern myself too much with it, because I have to worry about what’s going here right now. [Judging] is done by everybody, by the media, by the fans, by the front office. I can’t control that.”

Bullpen ranked 10th in majors By GORDON WITTENMYER gwittenmyer@suntimes.com First-year Cubs manager Rick Renteria made it clear from Day 1 on the job – and every time he’s been asked since – that he believes the only measure of success for him and his team is winning. And then he got to June with the top-performing starting pitcher in baseball (Jeff Samardzija), a bullpen ranked 10th in the majors and second in the division, a free agent pitcher (Jason Hammel) exceeding most expectations, and hoped-for rebound starts from two cornerstone players, Starlin Castro, Anthony Rizzo, who slumped in 2013. So what does it say about the manager that the Cubs have the worst record in the majors two months into the season? “Obviously, we have some things that have gone well,” Renteria said, “and I think there are some things that we continue to need to improve on. … I think we’re chipping away. Are we where we want to be? Obviously not.” Clearly, nobody outside the organization expected the Cubs to reverse a four-year trend of losing this year. And despite Renteria’s persistent and lofty talk about expecting to win, the front office has said more than once he won’t be judged on wins and losses with this roster he’s been given. But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t raised eyebrows at times

The Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo (right) is congratulated by Jason Hammel after derstand if we’re going to have hitting a two-run home run Saturday against the Milwaukee Brewers this power bullpen long term we can’t abuse these guys as young during the sixth inning in Milwaukee. for going to a short bench early in games, for some of his game strategy (i.e., bunt decisions). or some of his bullpen tendencies and decision-making. General manager Jed Hoyer on Monday again absolved the manager and staff of responsibility for the record, given the hand they’ve been dealt during this process. And Hoyer lauded strong performances so far of Castro and Rizzo. “Anytime you’re a first-time manager or first-time GM or first-time pitching coach, no one steps into those jobs and not have some learning to do,” Hoyer said. “He’s shown that aptitude to keep learning and keep getting better, and I think he’s done a nice job.” Among the problems out of Renteria’s control were a $4 million closer (Jose Veras) who mis-

fired his way out of the role in less than two weeks, the need to carry an extra bullpen arm (reducing the bench options) and a mostly platoon lineup with huge production gaps. Hoyer said the front office takes some of the responsibility of that, too, because of an organizational plan involving the transition of some first-time relievers (such as Justin Grimm and Neil Ramirez) and general preservation of the young power guys (such as Hector Rondon, Ramirez, Brian Schlitter, Pedro Strop). “Given the experience some of these guys have in the bullpen, we’re trying to actively make sure we don’t overuse these guys,” Hoyer said, “which results in a 13-man bullpen, which results in a shorter bench. And he’s totally on board. We un-

relievers.” As for the hitters that figures to be a matter of waiting for Javy Baez, Kris Bryant, et al. For now, nobody has been shut out more than the Cubs this season (eight times), and their records in extra-inning games (1-6), one-run games (3-10) and two-run games (2-8) are miserable. For his part, Renteria said he would “not necessarily” have done anything different in his first two months managing. “How we are judged in the end, I really don’t concern myself too much with it, because I have to worry about what’s going here right now,” he said. “[Judging] is done by everybody, by the media, by the fans, by the front office. I can’t control that. “In the end, what I am or am not, or what we are as a team or are not, will be judged by everybody else.”

Jimmie Johnson drives during the NASCAR Sprint Cup race Sunday at Dover International Speedway in Dover, Del.

Selfies can’t fix attendance woes

CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES Winstar World Casino & Resort 400 Race time: 8 p.m. Friday Site: Texas Motor Speedway, Forth Worth, Texas TV: FS1

CONCORD, N.C. – Kyle Larson lingered near his car waiting for the race to begin at Dover International Speedway when British TV presenter Cherry Healey joined him on the concrete. Kneeling next to a rear tire, Healey snapped a selfie with NASCAR’s newest star. Selfies are all the rage in every age group, and in NASCAR, where fans can rub elbows with their favorite driver minutes before the start of the race, the ability to snap a shot with the stars is just another perk in the fan-friendly sport. A snapshot of attendance shows a wider problem that social media can’t fix. Dover had swaths of empty seats Sunday, continuing the trend of declining attendance at the Delaware race track that primarily serves Baltimore, Philadelphia, Richmond, Virginia, and Washington. Longtime observers said the crowd was the smallest in years, something CEO Denis McGlynn seemed to hint was coming in the prerace meeting. McGlynn told the drivers that fans simply can’t afford to attend races at Dover,

Upcoming Sprint Cup schedule Sunday: Pocono 400, Pocono Raceway, Long Pond, Pa. June 15: Quicken Loans 400, Michigan International Speedway, Brooklyn, Mich.

IN THE PITS Jenna Fryer and warned “you’re going to see some holes in the grandstands.” McGlynn and his staff are targeting a younger audience, trying to build a new generation of race fans, and offered kids 14 and younger a $10 ticket Sunday. In an effort to appeal to those kids, who love Facebook and Instagram and Twitter and Snapchat, McGlynn urged drivers to take a moment and pose for selfies with the new fans. Autographs mean little to anyone but collectors and the guy trying to make a buck, so the selfie goes a long way. Far enough to fix attendance woes? Hardly. It still costs roughly $65 to get in the gate at Dover, and all those kids targeted with the $10 seats can’t get them without the purchase of an adult ticket, too. Throw in parking, food and drink – even if you bring your own – and it’s a big spend. At least half of Dover’s targeted audience could have

attended the race at Richmond in April. A huge portion of the fans can go to Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania this Sunday. And the luckiest fans at Pocono can skip the drivers and aim for selfies with the grand marshals, actors Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. NASCAR desperately wants to appeal to East Coast fans, but it’s a bloated market. There are too many entertainment options already, and NASCAR is cramming in four Sprint Cup races from April 26 through Aug. 3 in one region. Some will argue attendance doesn’t matter because the tracks don’t need attendance revenue as they did years ago. All tracks receive a cut of the TV package, and the deal that begins next year is worth $8.2 billion, so there’s plenty of wealth to trickle down to every facility. Could tracks fill the seats by lowering ticket prices? Probably. But hotel prices remain an issue in many markets, and the lodging costs are simply too high for fans even if the tickets are free. So, aside from giving each driver a daily selfie minimum

to meet, what’s the solution? There’s only one answer: blowing up the schedule. Iowa Speedway desperately wants a Sprint Cup race and seems to have the fan base to deserve consideration, but it can’t get on the 38-race schedule. Las Vegas Motor Speedway wants a second date, but can’t have one unless track owner Bruton Smith is willing to move a race at one of his other tracks. This isn’t pick-on-Dover day, but when a track is struggling to fill half the grandstands, it shouldn’t get two races a year. Atlanta is a big market and a storied race track, but when attendance dwindled, it lost one of its two races. NASCAR wants every race to matter, for every win to be a huge event. But there’s a winner every week and if you missed it this Sunday, you can catch it next Sunday or the one after that. Selfies can’t fix this. Something far more drastic has to be done.

Fine line between what went right, wrong in playoffs By MARK LAZERUS mlazerus@suntimes.com About five minutes after he slowly skated off the United Center ice for the last time this season, the last thing Duncan Keith wanted to do was take stock of the previous nine months. “I don’t know, it’s just frustrating right now,” he said. “It’s tough to analyze everything right now. I think as time goes on, we’ll kind of analyze it a little bit more.” When the Blackhawks do look back and figure out what went right and what went wrong, they’ll see just how fine a line they walked – just how close they were to history, and just how close they were to a first-round playoff exit against St. Louis. If T.J. Oshie’s shot in the third period of Game 4 had gone a half inch to the left, maybe the Hawks would have spent the past month golfing. If the NHL war room had decided that Jeff Carter’s stick was an inch above the crossbar rather than a hair below it on his first-period goal in Sunday’s Game 7, maybe the Hawks are playing for their third Stanley Cup in five years, and their second in a row. It’s hockey, and it’ll always be an inexact science. But here are five things that went just wrong enough to cost the Hawks a shot at another Cup.

OUT OF THEIR DEPTH Last spring, with barely a minute left in a suddenly tied Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, on the road, Joel Quenneville sent his fourth line of Marcus Kruger, Dave Bolland and Michael Frolik over the boards. He had full faith in that line to keep the Bruins off the board and get the game to overtime. All they did was

score the Cup-winning goal. This spring, in Game 7 of the Western Conference final against the Kings, Kris Versteeg played four shifts over the past two-plus periods, including one that lasted seven seconds. Michal Handzus came out for nine seconds in the last 12 minutes of the third period, just to take a faceoff. Brandon Bollig spent the last 46 minutes of the game on the bench. The 2014 Hawks simply didn’t have the depth that the 2013 Hawks did. Joel Quenneville was loath to admit it, but the Hawks were basically a three-line team for much of the postseason, and in a grueling series like the Kings one, that’s not enough. Stan Bowman had high hopes for the likes of Brandon Pirri, Ben Smith and Jeremy Morin to fill the skates of Bolland, Frolik and Viktor Stalberg. Only Smith earned a regular job. Pirri never earned Quenneville’s trust and was traded, Morin’s chance came too late to crack the postseason roster, Joakim Nordstrom wasn’t a difference-maker, and midseason acquisition Peter Regin didn’t get much of a chance in the postseason. Smith is a restricted free agent, and his agent has had no talks with the Hawks yet. Bollig and Versteeg are locked up, and Handzus might retire. The Hawks need the next generation to step up this fall – Morin, Nordstrom, Teuvo Teravainen, maybe even Mark McNeill and Phillip Danault – and Quenneville needs to give them a fair shot to make the Hawks a four-line team again.

CENTER OF ATTENTION Here’s a breaking story: The Hawks still don’t have a second-line center. It hasn’t

stopped them from winning two Stanley Cups in the past five seasons, but it didn’t help them win a third, either. Just look at how the Kings are built – with unrivaled depth down the middle, four quality centers who can win faceoffs and play a 200-foot game — and you can see how important centers are. The fact that this season began with Quenneville trying Brandon Saad, a career winger, at center in the preseason was a clear indication that this problem had yet to be solved. Handzus, one of Quenneville’s veteran security blankets, filled the role for most of the season and the first two rounds. Handzus plays a nice defensive game, but his slow footspeed was anathema to Patrick Kane’s speed game. Andrew Shaw found instant success with Brandon Saad and Kane in the Kings series, but Shaw is better suited to that third-line role he’s played for most of his career. Saad and Kane should be etched in stone on that second line for the next 10 years – their games are made for each other – but who will fill the void between them? The Hawks hope it’s Teravainen. The playmaking Finnish phenom got a cup of coffee with the Hawks late in the season and was hardly overwhelmed. But he needs to add size and strength to handle the rigors of the NHL. In the meantime, Shaw can hold down the fort, or Smith. Or who knows? Maybe Bowman says the heck with it, offers up Patrick Sharp (whose stock will never be higher coming off a career season) and makes a massive deal with San Jose to bring Joe Thornton to Chicago. That would certainly do the trick.

POINTS

The team brought in hotshot prospect Teuvo Teravainen for three games toward the end of the regular season. In the minds of the dreamier Hawks fans, he was going to be that long-sought-after center, but he didn’t look quite ready for the rigors of the NHL. The window for more Hawks championships is not closing. It’s still wide open, and fresh air is still breezing through. Saad raised his game in the playoffs and showed he can be a star in this league. If the 35-year-old Hossa slows down, Saad, 21, will be there to pick up the slack. Big if. Hossa looked as strong with the puck as ever this season. Ben Smith is a keeper. This is the most talented

team in the NHL, and that’s not going to change in the course of an offseason. It’s why you stay the course if you’re the Hawks. “The road to the Western Conference goes right through Chicago,’’ Kings coach Darryl Sutter said after Game 7. And if the Kings beat the Rangers for the Cup, as expected? “[The Hawks are] going to have to come through us,’’ Kings forward Justin Williams said. The Hawks get to be the hunter instead of the hunted. Not a bad thing to be. They’ll meet with the media today, and I’m sure we’ll hear about various injuries they hid from public view during the regular season and playoffs. It’s an NHL tradition. Somebody will have been dealing with two broken legs, a

The Associated Press PARIS – Maybe, just maybe, Rafael Nadal was a tad vulnerable, the thinking went before this French Open. He had lost three times on his beloved red clay already this year, more defeats than he ever had on the surface before heading to Roland Garros. Then came an admission, after the Grand Slam tournament’s third round, that his back was bothering him and slowing his serves. Well, leave it to the eighttime French Open champion’s upcoming quarterfinal opponent – 2013 runner-up David Ferrer, one of the men who beat Nadal on clay this spring – to set the record straight. “Rafael,” Ferrer said, “is always the favorite.” Nadal certainly looked the part in the fourth round Monday, when he won 18 points in a row during one stretch en route to beating 83rd-ranked Dusan Lajovic, 6-1, 6-2, 6-1, for a record 32nd consecutive victory at the French Open. That broke Nadal’s own mark of 31 and moved him a step closer to a fifth straight title in Paris. The No. 1-ranked Nadal, now 63-1 for his career at the tournament, has won all 12 sets he’s played in Paris in 2014, dropping a total of 23 games. He was asked whether he would have preferred a more taxing encounter by now. “You never know what’s better,” replied Nadal, whose audience at Court Philippe Chatrier included musician Prince. “But, in theory, the theory says that it’s better [to] win like this than win longer matches.” And his back? The one that flummoxed him during a loss in the Australian Open final in January, and then acted up

Saturday, leading to an average first serve of 102 mph and top speed of 114 mph? It didn’t appear to be as much of an issue against Lajovic: Nadal averaged 107 mph, with a high of 119 mph. “My back can be pretty unpredictable,” said Nadal, who wore thick vertical strips of athletic tape under his shirt. “I’m not lying. It’s totally unpredictable. I don’t want to speak too much about it.” OK, then. Now he takes on No. 5 Ferrer, who eliminated No. 19 Kevin Anderson of South Africa, 6-3, 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-1. Last year’s French Open final is one of 21 losses for Ferrer in 27 matches against fellow Spaniard Nadal. But Ferrer won their most recent meeting in straight sets, April 18 at the Monte Carlo Masters. As Ferrer himself noted, however, that was a best-ofthree-set match. They’ll be playing best-of-five Wednesday. “Tactically, I will have to be perfect,” Ferrer said. “I hope that I will instill some doubts in Rafa’s mind, but if we play at our best level, both of us, he will be a better player.” The other quarterfinal on the top half of the draw will be Wimbledon champion Andy Murray against 23rd-seeded Gael Monfils of France. No. 7 Murray beat No. 24 Fernando Verdasco, 6-4, 7-5, 7-6 (3), in a match marked by a wild third set. Verdasco held to get within 4-3 with an apparent service winner, but chair umpire Pascal Maria said that point should be replayed because a line judge called the ball out. That prompted Verdasco to begin berating Maria, shouting “Are you kidding me?” and saying he wanted a tournament supervisor to intervene – until Murray conceded the point.

fans that spends a lot of time unhappy with life. It’s hard to understand. It’s as if they’re not pleased unless they’re complaining about something. As Mark Lazerus, the SunTimes’ Hawks beat writer, so rightly put it, this is the Golden Age of hockey in Chicago. Some of you might want to stop and enjoy it. The team likely will part ways with the ineffective Kris Versteeg, which should placate some of the pitchfork wavers. For a while. The Hawks will have plenty of time to rest and get back to it next season. They will be Stanley Cup contenders from Day 1. As long as nobody panics.

lacerated kidney and malaria. Maybe the Hawks finally will admit they were tired. It took me much too long to come to the conclusion that they probably were dealing with fatigue more than any other team in the league. They didn’t look like themselves in the playoffs. Ten Hawks played in the Sochi Olympics in February, and the truly amazing thing was that most of them performed well when they returned to Chicago. Next season will have no Olympic interruption. The Hawks should be fresher all around. They won’t be coming off an intense, condensed schedule the way they were this season, nor will they be coming off a summer of partying with the Stanley Cup. Expect them to show up much more zeroed in next season. There’s a portion of Hawks

Allen enters first year with Bears at 128½career sacks • BEARS Continued from page B1 Briggs said it was “great to have a veteran presence in the defensive huddle,” even on the first day of OTAs. OTAs typically provide young players a chance to impress, particularly given the league’s new, stricter offseason schedule. At Halas Hall, though, the sessions are notable for the meshing of new veterans into the team’s rebuilt defense. Allen’s presence is unmistakable. “He’s a high-motor guy and he’s a great leader,” Briggs said. The former Vikings star, signed to a four-year, $32 million deal in March, said that “change is good – if you allow it to be good.” “For me, personally, I don’t know if you call it selfishness or not,” Allen said. “But I don’t want to be that guy who they feel like, ‘We

shouldn’t have got him.’” “When I signed, I wasn’t going to be that guy that wasn’t worth the money.” That will be determined not only by Allen’s performance – his 128½ career sacks trail only John Abraham among active players – but by whether the Bears improve a unit that was a field goal away from allowing the most points in the NFL. “That’s not Chicago football,” Jennings said. “It’s not what we’re known for, regardless of who was here and who we didn’t have. … “We’ve done what we’ve done in the offseason – and now’s the time to have the transition to the field.” The Bears have “a long way to go,” Briggs said. “The good thing about it is, we’re in the summertime now,” he said. “Got a lot of time to bring in all the fundamentals, get everything installed, the whole system. “So that by the time we get back to training camp, we’ll all be ready.”

Confronting drivers in handicapped spots Dear Abby: I suffered a serious accident at work and have endured numerous surgeries, with another on the horizon. Because the injuries are in the cervical and lumbar areas, they are not visible. Last week, I parked my car in a handicapped spot in the supermarket parking lot. Having a proper tag on my license plate, I didn’t think twice about it. As I entered the store, a woman who had parked nearby started shouting at me, saying I shouldn’t have parked where I did. I indicated she should read my plate, to which she then replied that I was “phony” for taking advantage of the system. I imagine she thought this because I was walking unaided that day. Abby, please inform your readers that not all injuries

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips are visible and not to assume that someone is taking advantage because he or she doesn’t meet your expectations of how a disabled person “should” appear. – Hurting in Northern California Dear Hurting: Gladly. This subject has appeared in my column before. You are correct that not all disabilities are visible. One that comes to mind would be a heart problem that prevents a patient from walking long distances. Another would be multiple sclerosis. Readers, if you are concerned that someone is gaming the system, rather than confront the person, write

down the license number of the car with the handicap plate and inform the Department of Motor Vehicles. If you are correct, the authorities will be interested in that information. And if you are not, you won’t have caused someone who already has problems additional distress. Dear Abby: I have been married to “Gilbert” for more than 30 years. We have always managed to resolve our differences in a relatively short time, but this time I’m not too sure. Our son was married last weekend, and because we’re of Celtic heritage, I chose to wear a beautiful dress from Ireland. Because it has short sleeves I brought a shawl to keep warm. When I asked my husband why he never said I looked nice, he replied he didn’t know whether I looked

nice because he “couldn’t see me under that damned blanket!” I was stunned. I wore the shawl only when I was near the door because it was cold there. I danced with him and several others many times and didn’t have it on then. I must have told Gil at least 20 times how handsome he looked, and so did everyone else. The shawl may have been a little big on me because I am only 5 feet tall and weigh 95 pounds. But I didn’t think I looked hideous. I’m hurt over his remark, and we haven’t really spoken for several days. What can I do to get past this awful feeling that we’re going in opposite directions? – Offended in The East Dear Offended: A good beginning would be to ask your husband why he made

such a mean-spirited remark. He owes you an apology for his tactlessness. If he really hadn’t thought you were dressed appropriately for your son’s wedding, he should have mentioned it BEFORE you left the house so you could change if you wished. Slamming you afterward wasn’t helpful, and your hurt feelings are understandable. But unless you have other reasons for worrying that you might be headed “in opposite directions,” don’t let this be blown out of proportion.

Keeping a journal may help settle your stress Dear Dr. K: My therapist told me that regularly writing in a journal might help ease my stress and improve my mood. Is there any evidence to back this up? Dear Reader: Yes, there is, if you are disciplined about it and do it the right way. Some of my patients and friends have kept a journal following a major and unexpected life stress – say, a cancer diagnosis, a car accident or a layoff. Others have been doing it most of their adult lives, not in response to a major life event. What goes into such a journal? What do you write about? Whatever is on your mind and feels important as you begin to write. It might be about a problem you are currently dealing with. It

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff might be about a significant event in your past. It might be about your family. It might also be about something wonderful – and why it is wonderful to you. When you’re writing about a stressful life event, recording your thoughts can help you cope with the emotional fallout of such events. Expressive writing may help if you struggle with ongoing depression or anxiety, but research suggests that it is more effective for otherwise healthy people who have suffered an emotional blow. You asked about evidence.

In one study, college students were divided into two groups. One group wrote about personally traumatic life events for 15 minutes on four consecutive days. The other group of students wrote about trivial topics. Compared to those who wrote about trivia, the students who wrote about traumatic experiences used fewer pain relievers over the next six months. They also visited the campus health center less often. How does writing help? The key may be in thinking deeply about the experience. When you’re writing, you’re likely to take a close look at the experience, put it in perspective and make connections to other aspects of your personal development. Timing also matters. It

may help to put some distance between yourself and a bad experience before writing about it. If you write about a stressful event immediately after it occurs, you may actually feel worse. If you’d like to give expressive writing a try: • Set a length of time to write, say 15 or 30 minutes. • Set a schedule, such as daily for five days, or weekly for a month. • Focus on a stressful experience. • Write nonstop and freely (whatever comes to mind) during the time you’ve set aside. • Don’t worry about grammar, punctuation or writing style. • Try to explore and express your innermost thoughts and feelings without

holding back. • Keep the writing confidential, so you’re less likely to censor yourself. There is always a lot of “stuff” rattling around in our brains – things we don’t understand, and know we don’t understand. That’s unsettling. Taking the time to reflect can settle that stuff and keep it from rattling around. Whatever topic you choose as you begin to write, you are about to do something enormously valuable: You are about to spend more time with yourself.

TODAY – Before making any drastic changes in the coming months, consider the consequences. A slow, deliberate approach will take you far. Making quick decisions or forming spontaneous partnerships will backfire. You can accomplish the most if you use your time wisely. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Don’t be tempted to change your plans. Someone pretending to be a friend could be trying to throw you off course. Use your innovative ideas to confuse the competition. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – An unexpected change could work to your advantage. You may not have been considering professional moves, but a positive result will unfold if you set your sights high. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Your entertaining attitude will attract people of influence. Your emotions will be difficult to control, but can be assets if you want to get your point across. Don’t neglect your home and family. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Avoid office politics and gossip. Any opinion you give will lead to a bad situation that could damage your reputation. Reserve judgment, be objective and remain neutral. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Your chutzpah will gain you added respect if you speak up about issues that concern you. Your enthusiasm and knowledge will help you win valuable allies. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – It’s not healthy to compare yourself to others. There are bound to be a lot of factors that you know nothing about. Be content with your own lot in life and grateful for what you have. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Meeting with people from outside your circle will present you with interesting ways to move forward personally or professionally. If you share as much as you can, you will make new friends. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Don’t make a commitment or start a new partnership. Take time to rejuvenate before you attempt to finish your to-do list. Paying attention to personal matters should take top priority. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Do your best to display honesty in personal and professional relationships. Boasting will not help you win trust or allies. Stick to the facts in order to make a good impression. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Look at a long-term investment that will help you build your assets safely. Don’t hold back when forceful pursuit is required. Balance and integrity will bring good results. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Romance is on the rise. Make special plans with someone you care for, or get out and meet someone new. Personal happiness can help you perform better in all walks of life. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Fond memories will make you want to get in touch with an old friend. Getting together with people who share your interests or concerns will lead to a joint venture.

8CROSSWORD

Which of three plays is correct? Duffy Daugherty, who was the head football coach at Michigan State University from 1954 to 1972, said, “Three things can happen when you put a ball in the air – and two of them are bad.” In this deal, East has three possible plays at trick one – and two of them are bad. South is in three no-trump. West leads the heart eight and declarer covers with dummy’s 10. Which heart should East play? East made a two-heart weak jump overcall, promising a respectable six-card suit and 5-10 high-card points. South responded with a negative double, indicating four spades. North cue-bid three hearts to show game-forcing values and to ask South if he had a heart stopper for notrump purposes. South starts with eight top tricks: one heart (given the lead), four diamonds and three clubs. If clubs are 3-3, the contract is safe, but if that suit is not breaking favorably, declarer will have to score a spade trick. If East wins the first trick with his heart ace and returns the suit, South will make his contract. Suppose instead East plays his heart queen. South will get home if – admittedly a big if – he does not take the trick. However, East should recall that when an opponent has only one stopper in the suit he is trying to establish, give that trick to the opponent as quickly as possible. East should signal enthusiastically with his nine. Declarer wins, tries the clubs, cashes his diamonds, and turns to spades. But West grabs the trick, cashes his club jack and leads his second heart to defeat the contract.
