DeKalb announces hours for READER POLL Halloween trick-or-treating


DAILY CHRONICLE DeKALB – The DeKalb Police Department has announced trick-or-treating hours for Halloween this year. Trick-or-treating hours for the city will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31, according to a news release from the DeKalb Police Department. Police also discouraged clown costumes this year in the wake of recent “clowning” activity. “Due to recent incidents of ‘clowning,’ clown costumes are discouraged,” the news release said. “While it is not illegal to wear any costume, intentional acts that alarm the public may result in criminal charges.” Dozens of rumors about “creepy clowns” reported across the country have proved to be hoaxes – in some cases, with charges filed against children reporting them. However, with reports of clown sightings spreading, fueled largely by social media, authorities have been forced to take them seriously as a potential threat to public safety, particularly at schools, where principals have conducted lockdowns and canceled classes.

Safety tips The DeKalb Police Department also offered safety tips for those trick-or-treating: • Young children should trick-or-treat with an adult. • Older children should trick-or-treat in large groups. • Children should walk on the sidewalk, not in the street. • Children should cross the street at intersections or crosswalks. • Children should wear reflective clothing and carry flashlights or glow sticks. • Children shouldn’t wear all-black clothing, which makes them virtually invisible to drivers. • Children shouldn’t enter a stranger’s home for any reason. • Parents should inspect their child’s candy before consumption. Police also offered safety tips for motorists: • Drive slowly and be on the lookout for young children. • Enter and exit driveways slowly and carefully. • Back out of your driveway with caution. • Don’t be distracted inside your vehicle with your radio, cellphone or other items. For questions regarding Halloween, call the DeKalb Police Department at 815-748-8400.

GENOA – The Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce and the League of Women Voters are teaming up for a meet-and-greet with local candidates and a debate. The Chamber will host a meet-and-greet with candidates from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, at Resource Bank, 310 Route 23, Genoa. That will be followed by a debate at 7 p.m. hosted by the


League of Women Voters. DeKalb County Board candidates John Wett and Jonathan Schmarje plan to attend, along with Richard Schmack and Rick Amato, who are running for DeKalb County state’s attorney.

ABUNDANCE AND CHANCE Harvest brings good yields, poor crop prices


John Ward of Sycamore is a seventh-generation farmer, working land his family has owned since 1837. Although Ward has been farming for 45 years, he refers to farmers by another title: professional gamblers. Ward and other farmers throughout DeKalb County have been harvesting their crops since late September and early October. They are working hard to harvest quickly because there has not yet been a killing frost. “We are at the mercy of the weather,” said Ward, who grows corn and soybeans. “There have been a few days of rain that affected our farming, but it’s nothing out of the normal. The weather has been average throughout the year, which is good for crops. The yields are very decent, with the moisture within the limits of what we wanted.” John Ruplinger, the grain department manager for CHS Elburn Coop in Sycamore, said that in DeKalb County, about two-thirds of farmers have harvested their soybeans and a third have harvested their corn. Corn, soybean and vegetable farmer Paul Taylor of Esmond said that his harvest was progressing slower than normal because of rain delaying the harvest of his soybean crop, which in turn led to a delay in harvesting his corn. “Harvest is progressing, but we have not had many good harvest days sequentially,” Taylor said. “Rain disrupted and inconvenienced our harvest and is making it slow. The rain here in DeKalb County was nothing like in northern Iowa, where there are inches of standing water and flooded fields.” Spring rain also affected farmers’ planting. Taylor had to replant seeds that he planted over Mother’s Day weekend because of poor emergence. He said that even late-planted crops should have abundant yields because of average to above-average heat during the summer and the fall. With adequate, sunny and warm weather throughout the growing season and not too much rain during harvesting, Ward said, he is pleased with everything about this year’s crops – except the prices they will

“We are at the mercy of the weather. There have been a few days of rain that affected our farming, but it’s nothing out of the normal. The weather has been average throughout the year, which is good for crops. The yields are very decent, with the moisture within the limits of what we wanted.” John Ward

DeKalb County farmer who grows corn and soybeans fetch. “The price is below the cost of production, and prices don’t look like they will recover at all,” Ward said. “I use some of my crop for livestock feed. I sell to the co-op, and it is exported on river barges or trains. I also have storage on my farm and sell it to the ethanol plant with price warrants. It all depends on who is paying the most at that time.” The approximate local crop market is paying $3.20 a bushel for corn and $9.50 a bushel for soybeans, Ruplinger said. “We’ve had good yields this year, with approximately 200 bushels an

acre of corn and 60 to 70 bushels an acre of soybeans,” Ruplinger said. “There have been good crops across the corn belt. There is a surplus of supply, and global demands continue to be good, especially for soybeans. The prices per bushel are slightly lower than previous years, and farmers aren’t too happy about that.” Even though prices are lower than average, Ruplinger said, with the above-average yields this year, farmers have a good opportunity to make a profit. The profit would depend on each farmer’s input variables, including expenses and the

cost of land, fertilizer, seeds, herbicides and pesticides. Although farmers usually decide what they will plant during the winter months, both Taylor and Ward said that they will plant more soybeans next spring. “We have become very good at producing and, historically, we produce more than the demand, which leads to lower prices,” Taylor said. “We have to think about global stock and inventory and always be mindful and look ahead. In 2012, we had a drought, but we have had good crops since then. You never know what the next year will bring.”

D-428 approves request for school’s emergency repairs

Work to fix large crack at Founders Elementary expected to cost $160,650 By RHONDA GILLESPIE DeKALB – DeKalb School District 428 is moving quickly to repair a large crack in a tower wall at Founders Elementary School, with the school board voting Tuesday for a plan to have a Sycamore-based company start on the work in next two weeks. The area near Door 13, at the rear of the school building, has been boarded up and gated off for weeks, after school officials discovered what they called huge “stair-step cracks” extending down part of the wall in a tower built as part of a late 1990s addition. “This space is a major throughway for students and staff to enter the gymnasium, which is also used as the cafeteria,” interim Superintendent Brad Hawk and Facilities Operations Director Tammy Carson wrote to school board members. “On Monday, Oct. 3, a structural engineer reviewed the structure and determined it was not safe.” Swedberg and Associates will tear down the tower and rebuild it, according to a plan presented to – and approved by – the school board. The work is expected to start by Nov. 1 and be done by Dec. 31 at an expected cost of $160,650. “This funding would be coming out of our operations and maintenance budget,” Carson said. Although the Illinois State Board of Education is not providing any of the funding, the school district had to obtain ISBE approval to expedite selecting Swedberg and Associates to do the work without sending the project out to bid, and to tap into special health and life-safety money. Carson said the ISBE already had signaled, verbally and through email, that it would approve the request.

Matthew Apgar –

Founders Elementary School Principal Connie Rohlman looks down a gated hallway Tuesday where a cracked wall is boarded up in DeKalb. The hallway leads to an alternate gym and cafeteria, but student and faculty traffic is diverted around the corridor. The school board’s vote Tuesday was part of the formal process, as it adopted the required resolution. ISBE did not respond by press time to the Daily Chronicle’s request for comment on its part of this emergency process, as it is called. The school district hopes to beat inclement weather in getting the work done. School board member

Kerry Mellott asked how high the repair costs could rise if weather becomes a factor. Carson said that there was no way to predict that. The outside area where the repair will take place is in proximity to where parents who drive their kids to school drop them off and pick them up. Carson said area will be inaccessible and traffic will be rerouted

during the construction. The tower is more cosmetic than functional, school officials said. However, the structure’s height extensions will be eliminated, and the tower will stop at roof level. “We also lose a lot of heating and air conditioning up into that tall ceiling – that really serves no purpose,” Carson said.

Interim leader: Trust, relationship building needed at District 428 By BRETT ROWLAND DeKALB – School District 428’s interim leader, appointed by the school board after allegations of sexual harassment involving the district’s superintendent, said Tuesday that he is ready to serve “during a time when trust and relationship-building are needed.” Interim Superintendent Bradley Hawk said in an email to parents that the district is in good hands and education hasn’t been affected by the recent scandal, which he didn’t directly mention. “From the perspective of the Board of Education and from my observations, the quality of instruction and service for students in the classrooms of the district has not been negatively impacted by the changes and transition in leadership,” he wrote. “The teachers, buildings staff and principals have done an outstanding job of ensuring that it has been business as usual for our students.” In September, Superintendent Doug Moeller was placed on paid administrative leave after DeKalb High School Principal Michele Albano requested and was granted an order of protection against Moeller – her direct supervisor – by a Kane County judge. In the complaint seeking the order of protection, Albano said that Moeller had become upset with her after she spurned his advances, threatening to ruin her career and intimidating her with a gun. She also alleged that Moeller’s “unstable and very unpredictable behavior” was the result of prescription drug use. Moeller hasn’t been charged with a crime. When Albano failed to show up at a hearing regarding the order of protection on Oct. 6, a Kane County judge dismissed it. Hawk said he had visited each of the district’s 11 schools during his first two weeks and found them to be in “good hands.” “The principals and assistant principals share the belief that ... a school district must do all it possibly can to ensure students are getting a high-quality education,” Hawk wrote. “The relationships between the teachers, staff and students are extremely strong and highly professional. I have, in fact, told many of

“My experience has taught me that in order for a school district to excel, there needs to be a relentless focus on students; a strong culture of collaboration and trust among the staff; and transparency through a partnership with the community.” Bradley Hawk

DeKalb School District 428 interim superintendent in an email to parents the school leaders that I would feel very comfortable with my grandchildren being educated in District 428.” Hawk, who retired in 2009 as superintendent of Burlington Central School District 301, will be paid $925 a day for up to 100 days of work through June 30, 2017, according to terms of his contract with the DeKalb-based school district. He is expected to work two to three days a week during that time. He cannot work more than that, because of his pension rules, district officials have said. Hawk will receive a $160,165 pension benefit in 2016, according to Better Government Association. He also said that transparency would be critical going forward. “My experience has taught me that in order for a school district to excel, there needs to be a relentless focus on students; a strong culture of collaboration and trust among the staff; and transparency through a partnership with the community,” he wrote. Hawk said he wanted to foster open communication with the message to parents. He declined to comment Tuesday on what he called “ongoing personnel” issues. However, when asked specifically whether his pledge for transparency would extend to the issues that prompted Moeller to be placed on leave, he said: “Once it is put to rest, I expect there will be transparency.” Asked, based on his 44 years of public school experience, if he thought the district’s reputation could overcome a string of scandals in recent years, he said: “I see a bright future for this school district.”

which are near the commercial buildings. City Manager Brian Gregory said facade grants are used to improve the appearance of downtown buildings, but the Hepkers’ plans coincide with interior improvements as well, such as new bathroom fixtures, lighting, drywall, ceilings and floors. Exterior renovations will be based on unifying the appearance of the two properties, including new siding, three new windows, a steel awning and two new doors that meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards. The concrete around the properties is also being repoured to meet ADA standards, Gregory said. “They’ve got two buildings they’re wanting to unify into one look,” Gregory said. He said the grant is for a 50 percent match of renovation costs that are eligible under the facade program. Renovating the 145 S. Sacramento property will cost more than $10,000, while the 139 S. Sacramento property will cost nearly $6,000, according to the grant recommendation. “We’re very fortunate to live in a wonderful town that allows people to make improvements and contribute to the betterment of our community,” Becky Hepker said.

SYCAMORE – Two neighboring vacant properties in downtown Sycamore will be renovated for potential use as office space using a facade grant from the city of about $8,000. The Sycamore City Council approved a $7,956.50 grant Monday for owners Brooks and Becky Hepker to improve the properties on the corner of Sacramento and Grant streets. Becky Hepker said she and her husband bought the properties in September from previous owner Bernie McMillan, a former mayor of Sycamore who operated Bernie’s Barber Shop out of the 139 S. Sacramento St. location. McMillan died Monday at age 88. “The reason why we purchased it is because it’s a part of our neighborhood, and we’ve always had an interest in that place there,” she said. “We feel that part of town is really improving, and we want to contribute to that.” The space at 145 S. Sacramento St. used to house a massage therapist’s office but has been vacant for a couple of years, Hepker said. Hepker said they don’t have specific plans yet for the use of the buildings, but the spaces always have been commercial. “At this point, we envision office space,” she said. “We don’t have any tenants that are interested at this time; we’re just rehabbing it. This way, we can work on it over the next six months or so and not really be rushed to make all the improvements that we intend to put in there.” The Hepkers also own three apartment buildings in the city, two of

By JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press

SPRINGFIELD – At the end of a brief online video promoting an Illinois agency’s training summit, the picture faded to black and, several seconds later, a pornographic clip appeared. Emails obtained by The Associated Press show the Illinois Emergency Management Agency scrambling in late August to disable the video, and its chief of staff ordering an investigation into how the salacious footage was added. Officially, the agency – whose conference last month included a session on cyber security – insists no one “hijacked” the website to tag the lewd material onto the end of Director James Joseph’s video invitation promoting the summit in Springfield. Agency spokeswoman Patti Thompson blames the foul-up on an unfortunate, but random, circumstance created by YouTube, the platform storing the IEMA clip, which ultimately was viewed more than 900 times. YouTube policies prohibit pornography and exclude nudity that is provocative or gratuitous. Stephanie Shih, a spokeswoman for the online video company, said the company depends on viewers to flag questionable

Preservationists raising money to save 130-year-old barn

HAMILTON – A group of preservationists is trying to save a 130-year-old Hancock County barn. Western Illinois Threshers has begun a fundraising campaign to rebuild the loose hay barn built by Alexander Bolton in 1884. Its mortise and tenon joints hold up beams without nails. The Quincy Herald-Whig reported that the group originally had hoped to rebuild the barn’s stone foundation. But Bolton Barn Committee chairwoman Patti Starr said it would cost

According to the emails, disclosed to the AP under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, the 2-minute, 17-second video featuring Joseph and Assistant Director Joe Klinger was completed by the first week of August. On Aug. 29, chief of staff Jennifer Ricker emailed Joseph, Klinger and others indicating that she had instructed web developer Brad Brooks to disable the invite.

Western Illinois Threshers discovered that the beams of the 40-by-60-foot barn were assembled in either Wisconsin or Minnesota and shipped down the Mississippi River. By tracing that history, researchers were able to establish that the barn is much older than first thought.


Coast Guard rescues man on windsurfer from Lake Michigan

EVANSTON – The U.S. Coast Guard has rescued a man from Lake Michigan who was stranded after the mast on his windsurfer broke. The Coast Guard posted video online that was recorded during Monday’s rescue, which took place about a mile east of Lee Street Beach in Evanston. The Coast Guard responded after a friend of the man told

“At the end of the video, it goes black and then starts playing porn,” Ricker wrote. “Once the video is down, I have instructed Brad to then start investigating how this occurred.” Less than an hour later, IEMA chief information officer Sreekumar Govindan reported, “It’s back on! We added stricter privacy settings. ... There was no hijacking involved.” There was no need for an investigation because adjusting YouTube view-

Initially, Thompson said that under YouTube’s design, the pornographic feature automatically loaded as the random “next choice” following the IEMA video. Later, she said that when Brooks responded to Ricker’s order, he found that what followed IEMA’s video was a choice of four other videos, featured in “thumbnail” photos. Thompson said Brooks didn’t review the offerings for lewd material. Rather, he unchecked a box allowing suggested follow-up videos and set the system to return the IEMA video to its beginning, Thompson said. YouTube concedes it’s possible objectionable material was posted – users upload 400 hours of new content every minute – but said the company urges viewers to “flag” such visuals so that company monitors can immediately evaluate them and remove them if they violate standards. Thompson said the agency was alerted to the added footage by a viewer who reported it to a regional IEMA office. That was the only complaint the agency received, she said. “We’d been told that this person pulled it up and this porn video started playing,” Thompson said. “I assume it was just from the report that came in and not from anything we saw.”

Abbott, St. Jude to sell products to Terumo Corp.

NEW YORK – St. Jude Medical Inc. and Abbott Laboratories have agreed to sell portions of their businesses to medical device maker Terumo Corp. for $1.12 billion in hopes that will clear the way for their buyout deal.

North Chicago, Illinois-based Abbott is buying St. Paul, Minnesota-based St. Jude for $19.3 billion, but the deal faces scrutiny by antitrust regulators. The medical device makers are shedding some units and products to meet regulatory approval for the deal to close. The sale to Japan-based Terumo includes St. Jude’s Angio-SealT and FemosealT vascular closure products and Abbott’s Vado Steerable Sheath. Abbott will retain its vascular closure products, which include the Perclose ProGlide Suture-Mediated Closure System, StarClose SE Vascular Closure System and Prostar XL Percutaneous Vascular Surgical System. Abbott expects the St. Jude buyout to close in the fourth quarter.

NATION & WORLD BRIEFS Earth’s record heat streak building, killing all nine people ends but warming remains on board. WASHINGTON – Earth’s 16-month sizzling streak of record high temperatures is finally over, according to one group of federal meteorologists. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said last month’s 60.6 degrees (15.9 Celsius) was merely the second hottest September on record for the globe. That’s ever so slightly cooler – a few hundredths of a degree – than the record set in 2015. But it was quite a bit warmer – 1.6 degrees (0.9 Celsius) – than the 20th-century average. Global average temperatures include both land and sea surface readings. And while oceans were cooling off a tad, global land temperatures in September still set a record high, NOAA climate scientist Jessica Blunden said. It was an unusually hot month in much of Europe, Asia, Africa and North America.

The four-member safety board also blamed Execuflight, a Fort Lauderdale, Florida, aviation company that operated the jet, for inadequate pilot training and aircraft maintenance and the Federal Aviation Administration for failing to provide proper oversight of the company. The pilot and his captain in charge of the flight were carrying seven employees of a Florida commercial real estate company from Dayton, Ohio, to Akron. The Nov. 10, 2015, crash occurred less than two miles from Akron Fulton International Airport.

Obama to Trump: ‘Stop whining’ about election The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – “Stop whining,” President Barack Obama rebuked Donald Trump on Tuesday, speaking out as seldom before on next month’s election and chiding the Republican for sowing suspicion about the integrity of America’s presidential vote. Obama also accused Trump of cozying up to Russia’s Vladimir Putin to a degree “unprecedented in American politics.” The president said Trump’s intensifying pre-emptive warnings about voter fraud are unheard of in modern politics. The rhetoric is not based on any evidence, Obama said, but is simply aimed at discrediting the outcome before the first votes are counted. “You start whining before the game is even over?” Obama said at a Rose Garden news conference. “If whenever things are going badly for you and you lose you start blaming somebody else – then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job.” Campaigning in Colorado, the GOP candidate repeated his assertions about “corrupt” elections but did not respond directly to the president. Trump vowed to “drain the swamp” in Washington, and for the first time promised to push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress. The president’s remarks came as Trump and his Republican allies look for ways to regain momentum after a damaging few weeks in the campaign. Heading into the third and final debate Wednesday night, Trump is trailing in the polls and running out of time for a comeback before Nov. 8. Obama waded into the race to elect a successor, speaking at the White House where he was hosting his final state visit. Italy’s Prime Minister Matteo Renzi at his side, the president initially said he would

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks Tuesday at a campaign rally in Colorado Springs, Colo. pull his punches when it came to politics, respecting the official setting. But when he was asked about Trump’s rhetoric, he hardly held back. “I would invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes,” he said. The GOP candidate has ramped up warnings about potential fraud. That’s drawing criticism not only from Democrats, but from his own party, particularly the state and county officials who run local elections, who fear the rhetoric will give losers license to dispute any results. “They even want to try and rig the election at the polling booth, where so many cities are corrupt and you see that and voter fraud is all too common,” Trump said at a rally in Colorado Springs. Independent studies and election officials in both parties say they see no evidence that voter fraud – individuals impersonating others to cast ballots – is a widespread problem. Asked about Trump’s claims on Tuesday, running mate Mike Pence dodged and suggested Trump’s point actually was about the “overwhelming bias in the national media.” Pence spoke after touring the burned-out offices of the

Republican Party in Hillsborough, North Carolina. The GOP office was firebombed over the weekend in what Pence called an “act of political terrorism.” Trump pointed at Clinton supporters, but Pence did not assign blame. Police are investigating. Clinton held no public events Tuesday while she prepared for the debate. She has her own troubles and is certain to be asked about the latest revelations involving her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state. New FBI documents released Monday revived questions about whether she received classified information and whether State Department allies sought to protect her from criticism over the email arrangement. The FBI notes show a State Department official asked the FBI to lower the classification of a sensitive email found on her server. The email was related to the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. The documents revealed discussion of a “quid pro quo” in trying to get the email reclassified, although it’s not clear who first raised the issue. Both State and FBI officials deny any bargaining took place, and the email was not declassified.

SPRINGFIELD – Several thousand Springfield Clinic patients insured through Illinois’ health plans will be asked to pay hundreds of dollars in co-payments, deductibles and other out-of-pocket costs the clinic hasn’t tried to collect for the past year and a half. The clinic usually waits to bill patients their share of the total cost after the State Employee Group Insurance Program pays for the majority of the cost, The State Journal-Register reported. But payment for certain plans are at a standstill during the ongoing state budget crisis. The clinic, which is owed $68 million, has decided to ask patients to pay their share of bills regardless of whether Illinois’ share has been paid. “Under normal circumstances, Springfield Clinic would not bill the patient’s responsibility (co-insurance) until after the claim had been paid by insurance,” said a letter sent to patients last week. “However, because the state is so delinquent in its payments, Spring-

field Clinic has decided to temporarily deviate from our standard billing practice.” Requesting the payment from patients will help the clinic catch up, said Mark Kuhn, the clinic’s chief administrative officer. He also noted that the clinic does offer payment plans for its patients. “We’re just doing catch-up on member balances,” he said Fully insured plans that cover state workers, which include Health Alliance, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois and Coventry Health Care, have continued to voluntarily pay health care professionals and hospitals – despite the fact that the state is far behind on paying the plans their monthly premiums. The clinic’s payment requests will apply to future medical services and for claims remained unpaid for the past 12 to 18 months. The clinic hasn’t decided whether they will ask patients in the future to also pay the state’s share of their bills. However, Kuhn said, the clinic would reimburse patients after receiving the state’s payments.

Trump a threat to peaceful transition

What has allowed the United States to last for so long as a democracy, when so many other countries have failed? There are many factors, but none is more fundamental than this: When we hold elections, the losing party acknowledges the legitimacy of the winner, and the winner allows the loser to survive to fight another day. Now, for the first time in modern history, a major-party candidate rejects both sides of that equation. If he loses, Donald Trump said, it will be because of cheating that makes the result illegitimate. If he wins, he will imprison his defeated opponent. Many Americans may not have given much thought to what a breathtaking departure this represents because, until now, we have had the luxury of never having to think about such things. We have been able to take for granted the quadrennial peaceful transition of power. We watch from a distance when political parties in one foreign country or another take up arms after losing an election. We look, as if at something that could never happen here, when a foreign leader sends an opponent to jail or into exile. This can happen in Zimbabwe, we think, or Russia, or Cambodia – but not here. Not in the United States. The Republican nominee is saying that he will make it happen here. He tells Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee, that if he were president, “you’d be in jail.” He nods approvingly and chimes in when his crowds chant, “Lock her up.” He warns that a vast, if fuzzily defined, conspiracy of global bankers, media companies and election officials is gearing up to steal the election. “The election is rigged,” he said. “It’s rigged like you have never seen before. They’re rigging the system.” The Washington Post has endorsed Clinton for president, contending that she is well-qualified, well-prepared and likely to do a good job. But to voters who disagree – who never have voted for a Democrat, say, or who question our assessment of her qualifications – we would argue that Trump’s challenge to the very core of our democracy nonetheless provides strong reason to vote for her. You may disagree with Clinton about Obamacare, Russia policy or Planned Parenthood. She may, as president, take actions that deeply upset you. But you can be certain that if Republicans take issue with her, she will not order them jailed. With Trump, if the candidate himself is to be believed, there is no such certainty. A voter’s first obligation should be to preserve the republic that has been, for so long, the envy of the world. The Washington Post



LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Funding critical to curing Alzheimer’s

To the Editor: Recent decades have seen an extraordinary shift in our expectations when we are confronted with what once were terminal illnesses. With increased access to quality health care, diseases that once were death sentences now are treatable. With the dedication and resources that have successfully turned the tables on other previously terminal illnesses, the first Alzheimer’s disease survivor could be alive right now. Americans must understand that finding a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease is critical. More than 5.4 million people in our country have Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s is the only disease in the top 10 causes of death for which no prevention, treatment or cure exists – it is 100 percent lethal. As a result, this year alone, the federal government will spend more than $160 billion caring for people with Alzheimer’s, and as the baby boomer generation ages, this number will grow every year. In my role as an Alzheimer’s Association ambassador, I work with other advocates to build support at the federal level for Alzheimer’s research funding. We’d like to ask our congressman, Adam Kinzinger, to support increasing federal research funds, as we still have yet to hit even half of the $2 billion-ayear level the National Institutes of Health said is necessary to beat this disease.

With the past history of successes that we have seen from the NIH, we can expect our investments to pay off – as long as we make them. Not only is the first survivor of Alzheimer’s out there, millions more are also. Chrisi Karcz

Younous Chekkouri hates to go outside because people in the crowd turn into guards from Gitmo. For at least one prisoner, what made all this worse is that it was America doing it to him. America, the world champion of human rights. America, the nation of laws. “It is very, very scary when you

are tortured by someone who doesn’t believe in torture,” Ahmed Errachidi said. “You lose faith in everything.” He was released without charges after five years. Civilization is a word we use for the rules we impose upon ourselves to protect against our most brutish instincts. And America is fond of thinking itself the most civilized of nations, especially as compared with those countries that breathe terror like air. When the history of this epoch is written, it will tell how our civilization, our righteousness, came under assault by an army of ragtag barbarians one sparkling September morning. It will tell how we swore to defend all that made us what we were. But these reports remind us how readily we gave it all away.

Don’t vote without doing your research

Stay home, don’t vote – unless you earn the responsibility through research TV celebrity Mike Rowe – of Ford trucks, dirty jobs and doing it because somebody’s gotta – recently was asked to use his celebrity to encourage people to get out and vote. He declined. His reasons should give us all pause. “Regardless of their political agenda, my celebrity pals are fundamentally mistaken about our ‘civic duty’ to vote. There is simply no such thing. Voting is a right, not a duty, and not a moral obligation. Like all rights, the right to vote

comes with some responsibilities, but let’s face it – the bar is not set very high,” he said. Simply said, you shouldn’t encourage someone to vote just to vote. Educating oneself about candidates and issues is a time-consuming task that should not be reduced to a whim inspired by a Hollywood personality’s earnest plea. Our initial reasons for creating a public education system were so that we would produce voters capable of evaluating and understanding the choices they were making at the ballot box. Thomas Jefferson wrote in sup-

port of public education that: “The functionaries of every government have propensities to command at will the liberty and property of their constituents. “There is no safe deposit for these but with the people themselves; nor can they be safe with them without information. Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe.” So despite past exhortation on these pages to get out and vote, you won’t be hearing that this year. Instead, consider this the campaign to get out and read, and then only after you have invested the time to

understand the issues and to weigh the choices, should you get out and vote. That will mean you don’t choose someone based on who you think will win. You won’t rule out other-party candidates because they might help or hurt a major party candidate. You won’t just pick the lesser of evils. You will make informed choices because you have earned that responsibility by doing your homework and weighing the information against your values and understanding. You have 23 days to get busy.

Meantime, back at Guantanamo ... . Chances are, you haven’t thought of that American gulag – or, for that matter, of “extraordinary renditions,” CIA black sites and torture – for a long time. Not everyone has the luxury of forgetting. In the last few days, some compelling reportage has reminded us of that. In The Miami Herald, we met 48-year-old Mustafa al Hawsawi, a Gitmo detainee who was scheduled for rectal surgery to repair damage done when, his lawyer said, he was sodomized by his captors 10 years ago. As reporter Carol Rosenberg explained, this “sodomy” was, in fact, a “quasi-medical” process of “rectal rehydration” and “rectal re-feeding,” i.e., providing nourishment through a tube in the rectum. The lawyer said this was a means of punishment. It left Hawsawi with what’s called a rectal prolapse. He has bled from the injury for 10 years. Hawsawi, you should know, faces the death penalty for his alleged part in the Sept. 11 attacks that took

DeKALB GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY PREPARING FOR REGIONAL, HOPING FOR A HEALTHY TOP SEVEN / 19 DeKalb’s Christina Ryzhov runs in the Northern Illinois Big 12 Cross Country Conference meet Saturday at Hoover Park in Sterling.

SPORTS | Daily Chronicle /


DeKalb girls hoping for full health heading into postseason By EDDIE CARIFIO Whether it’s one thing or another, the DeKalb girls cross country team has not been able to get its top seven through many races this year. As the Barbs prepare for the Class 3A Guilford Regional on Saturday, coach Mike Wolf said he hopes his team is fully healthy – although Katherine Olsen became light-headed and couldn’t finish the conference race last week. She’s set to visit the doctor this week, and her status is up in the air, Wolf said. Injuries have also plagued top runner Christina Ryzhov, freshman Inga Collin and sophomore Jadyn Ensign. “Those girls we’ve been really light with, trying to get them as healthy as possible,” Wolf said. “Hopefully we get a full week of training and get ready to go Saturday.” All three classes have their regionals on Saturday, with the Barb boys and

girls heading to Rockford. In Class 2A, the Sycamore boys and girls will compete in Burlington Central. In Class A, the Genoa-Kingston teams head to Winnebago while Indian Creek and Hinckley-Big Rock go to the St. Bede Regional in Peru. In each class the top six teams and five runners not on a top-six team advance to the sectional. Wolf said he feels the girls team should finish in the top six, and hopes the boys can compete with Huntley and Hononegah for a top-three finish. Seniors Mitch Bishop and Thomas Wuchte has paced the team all year, and the seven runners Saturday will include two sophomores and two freshmen. “They’re senior captains and have been really consistent,” Wolf said. “They’re real strong leaders on the team. It’s been a fun group ’cause it’s really a mix.” The Barb boys were fourth at the conference tournament last week, and Wolf

said the team was disappointed. “We were coming off a real strong week at Sterling, but we didn’t run poorly (at the conference meet),” Wolf said. “I think a couple teams really ran well. Sycamore ran fantastic and did a great job to win the conference. So our guys are a little disappointed but still hungry.” Sycamore coach Mike Lambdin said he hopes the team can keep the momentum going into the regional. “It was probably one of the better team races of the season,” Lambdin said. “Everybody is excited and looking forward to racing at regionals on Saturday.” Stephen Poorten is coming off a second-place finish, behind only Kaneland’s Matthew Richtman. Connor Farrell and Jake Carani also had top 10 showings for the Spartans. The Knights took fifth at the meet. Coach Chad Cleary said freshman Daniel Occhipinti ran well after spending most of the year at the lower level. Cleary said he expects the team to run

better. “We ran a freshman for the first time Saturday. And another sophomore might have a major impact,” Cleary said. “I don’t think we used the power of our pack very well, so we have to run a different race Saturday. Hopefully we’ll finish top six and advance to sectionals.” The Kaneland girls took second, paced by Rachel Richtman – who continued her run of top 5 finishes this year with a third-place showing. “She’s just a good runner,” Doug Ecker said. “She doesn’t overthink things, just goes out there and runs. It’s a good personality for a runner.” Ecker said he expects his Knights to have a strong showing on Saturday. “It’s difficult as it always is this year, the regional and especially the sectional,” Ecker said. “It’s going to be very tough to get through to state. But as always I’m hoping the girls run the best they can. You never know what’s going to happen.”

DeKalb’s Jasmine Kemp leaps for a block during the Barbs’ two-match win over the Sycamore Spartans Tuesday at Sycamore High School.

Jennifer Payton for Shaw Media


DeKalb knocks off rival Sycamore By JOHN BUTKUS SYCAMORE – On senior night, the Spartans struggled their way to a straight-set defeat to DeKalb. The Barbs took down the Spartans, 25-22, 25-18, on Tuesday night. Sycamore (13-20-2) and DeKalb (1613) played through two close sets in a rowdy home crowd for Senior Night, but DeKalb found a way to battle through and earn victories in both. Sycamore held the advantage through almost all of the first set, eventually holding a 20-16 lead over DeKalb. The

tide quickly shifted as the Barbs were able to score four straight points to tie the set. The Barbs proceeded to go on a 9-2 run to secure the set victory. “I was super happy with our determination today,” DeKalb coach Jamie DiMaggio said. “We’ve been in kind of a rut lately and I think they finally realized that it was only them that could get them out of that rut and they came out tonight fired up and ready to play.” Hannah Oehlberg of DeKalb finished with six kills while Jasmine Kemp finished with four kills. As a team, the Barbs finished with five to-

tal blocks. Sycamore once again had the early advantage in the second set, but DeKalb fought their way back to a 10-8 lead, and they didn’t look back from there. From that point on, the Barbs consistently held four- or five-point leads, eventually gaining a 22-16 advantage before closing it out with the 25-18 victory. “I think they just trusted each other tonight,” DiMaggio said. “They looked to each other for support and we’ve been really working on minimizing our errors and getting the ball back as much as we can.”

Sycamore held their own in both sets, but gave up the lead two times and was never able to reclaim it against their rivals. “It’s tough to come out on senior night and stay focused and play your rival at the same time,” Sycamore coach Jennifer Charles said. “I think the girls played well, maybe not as well they would have wanted to on senior night, but I thought they did OK. DeKalb is a very good serving team and we knew that coming out of the gate and we needed girls to step up and make plays and pass well; sometimes we had that and sometimes we didn’t.”

quainted with the Huskies’ coaching staff. He also had heard from Eastern Illinois and Southern Illinois. “I really liked Northern,” Hedmark said. “The coaching staff was great, and I never wanted to go too far away for school. “I always dreamed about playing Division I baseball since I started playing travel baseball. I actually started getting emails two or three years ago to come to this showcase, and I thought, ‘Maybe I have a chance if I keep working hard.’ ” Hedmark was 3-3 in 42 2/3 innings pitched, with 44 strikeouts, eight walks and a 2.13 ERA. He was a Northwest Herald All-Area second-team selection as an outfielder after hitting .342 with a teamhigh 20 RBIs. One of Hedmark’s losses came against McCumber, a 1-0 decision in which Mc-

Cumber pitched a perfect game. “That game was crazy,” Hedmark said. “The night before we lost, 13-0, to Cary-Grove, so I was super fired up to pitch. He pitched his butt off. It is what it is. He’s a good pitcher.” Hedmark pitched with left Danny Denz, who now pitches at NCAA Division I Memphis, the past two years on the Chargers’ staff. “[Hedmark] is a finesse pitcher. He’s not a guy who’s going to overpower you,” Anderson said. “But he knows how to pitch. It’s not just going up there and throwing a strike, it’s knowing when to throw the right pitch, hitting your spot, keeping hitters off-balance. Northern’s getting a fantastic young man, not only as a baseball player, but as an athlete, as a leader, as a student, an overall total package.”


Sexual consent, debated across U.S., key to Derrick Rose case By BRIAN MELLEY

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES – Months before Derrick Rose took the stand to defend himself in a lawsuit claiming he and two friends raped an ex-girlfriend while she was intoxicated, the NBA star was asked if he understood the word “consent.” “No. But can you tell me?” he asked at a deposition in June. Rose came to court last week with a much better grasp of the word that is central to the $21 million civil case, although his interpretation of the concept could prove costly. No one disputes the New York Knicks player and his friends had sex with the woman in her apartment Aug. 27, 2013. The question is whether she gave her consent — as the men claim — or whether she was too incapacitated to do so — as she insists. There is no commonly accepted definition for consent, which is at the heart of a “patchwork quilt” of evolving laws on rape and sexual assault that in some cases require an affirmative agreement before sex, attorney Rebecca O’Connor said. “It is murky, and I think that’s where we’re seeing a lot states try to clear the weeds, if you will, and take this on and make it clear,” said O’Connor, a vice president at the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network. “It’s so complicated we can never just say it’s black and white.” Rape was once defined as intercourse with force against a woman’s will, said

AP file photo

New York Knicks basketball player Derrick Rose arrives Oct. 6 at U.S. District Court in downtown Los Angeles. Matt Lyon, a law professor at Lincoln Memorial University. Reform efforts in some states led to rape being defined more by the non-consent of the victim than a use of force by the perpetrator. States such as California have gone further in deciding that consent can be withdrawn during sex and that a victim can be too incapacitated to agree to the act. “One of the big criticisms against the modernization is the ‘he said, she said,’ ” Lyon said. “It’s so easy when it’s clear there was force used, but here the woman may say it was rape though there’s no physical evidence of force or that it was

done against her will.” That is the situation in the Rose case, where the woman said she blacked out after drinking earlier in the night and felt drugged after downing a few shots of tequila at Rose’s Beverly Hills mansion. With no physical evidence, the case hinges as much on her credibility as that of the three men. The woman said she went home from Rose’s place, vomited and woke up around 3 a.m. to find Rose, Ryan Allen and Randall Hampton having sex with her and she was too incapacitated to stop it. Rose may have been tripped up by the

word “consent” in his videotaped deposition, but he tried to recover at trial by defining it as both parties being in agreement. He also connected dots he felt outlined consent, including the woman’s racy texts that started 17 hours earlier saying he made her “horny.” “Maybe she sent suggestive texts or emails, but that doesn’t prove she consented to it at the time,” said Evan Lee, a law professor at the University of California, Hastings College of Law. “A woman may be willing to have sex 23 hours in the day, but if he has sex in that 24th hour when she’s not willing, then that’s rape if he knows she doesn’t want to.” Rose testified that he assumed consent based on their sexual history, the fact she had never denied him and because of sex acts she initiated with him and his friends at the Beverly Hills house earlier in the night. He and his friends all said the woman seemed sober and she willingly participated. When the three men entered her apartment that morning, defense lawyer Mark Baute said in closing arguments Tuesday that she told them “one at a time” and welcomed them with “open arms and open legs.” The Associated Press is not naming the woman because it generally does not identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault. Her lawyer argued that the defense concocted a story to show the woman consented through her sexually aggressive behavior, but he said it amounted to blaming the victim.

What Dundee-Crown baseball coach Jon Anderson observed two years ago with Erik Hedmark was poise belying his age. Hedmark, who throws and bats left-handed, was promoted by Anderson to the varsity as a freshman. “His baseball I.Q., when you looked at Erik Hedmark him as a freshman, you didn’t see a freshman,” Anderson said. “You saw somebody out there who was confident, somebody who has baseball ability, had the baseball sense.” Northern Illinois University baseball

coach Mike Kunigonis and his staff saw the same qualities from Hedmark, a junior who committed Monday to pitch for the Huskies. He will join NIU in the 201819 school year. “They liked my maturity and that I have good movement on my fastball,” Hedmark said. “They talked to coaches, and they heard I keep my composure well, and I don’t blow big situations.” Hedmark will join a staff at NIU that will have Cary-Grove’s Matt McCumber and McHenry’s Mike Lasiewicz on it. Both McCumber and Lasiewicz are seniors in the Fox Valley Conference this year. Hedmark plays with the 29ers in travel baseball during the summer, which is where NIU coaches saw him this year. In September, Hedmark attended a camp at NIU and became better ac-

Chapman on Dodgers rejection: ‘No ill will’ By GORDON WITTENMYER

LOS ANGELES – If the Cubs win this series, Aroldis Chapman has the chance to be the last man standing on the mound, the man who can pile the final outs onto the Dodgers’ elimination – maybe even make the Dodgers regret bailing on him last winter. The Dodgers had a deal done with the Reds for Chapman before domestic abuse allegations came to light, resulting in an MLB investigation and ultimately a 30-game suspension for the left-hander with the 104-mph fastball. The Dodgers quickly backed out of the deal, and the Yankees accepted the terms of the suspension in completing a discounted trade for the closer. Chapman retired six of the eight Dodgers he faced, pitching in each of the first two games of the National League Championship Series. But it’s not personal, he swears – insisting he’ll find no extra joy in helping eliminate the Dodgers because of what that team might represent to him. “I knew the deal was almost done and it broke apart,” Chapman said in Spanish through team interpreter Mateo Moreno. “But to me it was fine whatever occurred with them. “I don’t hold any ill will toward them at all about that. I know it’s just business.” Cubs teammates are just glad that business kept Chapman from joining Kenley Jansen in the Dodgers’ bullpen. “That’s what me and [Hector Rondon] always say,” reliever Pedro Strop said.”It was better having him on our side than somebody else. “Can you imagine if he went to the St. Louis Cardinals or somebody like that? That would be tough.”


The Cubs wasted no time taking their first hacks at Dodgers Game 4 starter Julio Urias a full day before his playoff start against them. Cubs manager Joe Maddon sent a loud and clear message to the umpire crew during his media session Tuesday when asked about the lefty rookie’s pickoff move that some consider close to a balk. “Close?” Maddon said. ”When you get to see it on TV, it’s pretty obvious, it’s not even close. It’s a very basic tenet regarding what is and what is not a balk. Give him credit, man,

Cubs relief pitcher Aroldis Chapman delivers during the ninth inning Sept. 26 against the Pittsburgh Pirates in Pittsburgh. for going through with it. That’s part of the game. “There are certain umpires that are in tune to that, some that are not,” he added. “There are other balks that I always get annoyed with that aren’t called.

“So I’m certain that the umpiring crew has been made aware of it. That’s 101. That’s not an interpretation; that’s Balking 101 for me. So we’ll see how it all plays out.” Notes: Maddon said rookie catcher Willson Contreras is in play to

Kaneland, Sycamore set for state tourney By EDDIE CARIFIO Aside from last year, when the Spartans sent all six players to the state tournament, the Sycamore and Kaneland tennis teams have always had problems getting players to state. With the IHSA splitting the sport into two classes for the first time this year, that changed in a big way. Both teams each qualified a singles entry and a doubles entry for the Class 1A State Tournament, which runs Thursday through Saturday in Buffalo Grove. Sycamore’s Laurynn Mize beat Kaneland’s Elizabeth Towell, 6-2, 6-2, in the third-place match, and both will earn a trip to the finale. In doubles, Brooklynn Scott and Kate Majerus took fourth for Sycamore, while Lauren Karolewicz and Marley Schultz were second for the Knights. Overall in the sectional, the Spartans were third and the Knights second behind champion Boylan Catholic. For Kaneland, they entered the year sending five players to state in its history. That number is now eight. “We’re very happy with how things turned out, placing second in that regional,” Kaneland coach Tim Larsen said. “The girls just all played well, and when we won all our first-round matches, we got really happy and thought we could have gotten all four through. But we’re pretty happy with the result.” Mize will face the No. 9 seed, Joliet Catholic freshman Mia Mertino, in the first round. Scott and Majerus will face Althoff Catholic seniors and No. 3 seeds Emma Melichar and Madelyn Skinner. Towell will face Rogers Park junior and No. 6 seed Nicole Lao, while Karolewicz and Schultz will face Maggie Stopa and Charlie Satoris, the No. 15 seeds from Bloomington Central Catholic. Sycamore had a big year last year, with six players going to state – two single sand two doubles teams. But all those players except Mize moved

“We’re very happy with how things turned out, placing second in that regional. The girls just all played well, and when we won all our first-round matches, we got really happy and thought we could have gotten all four through. But we’re pretty happy with the result.” Tim Larsen

Kaneland coach on. One of the new players, Majerus, hadn’t played tennis before this summer. “It’s been quite the experience,” said Majerus, who also plays basketball for the Spartans. “I never thought I’d be playing tennis this year. It’s been a lot of fun. I’ve enjoyed it and it’s a complete honor I’m getting to go my first year.” First-year Sycamore head coach Jen O’Sullivan said Majerus and Scott have a good chemistry. “(Majerus is) a total athlete, and they both get along well,” O’Sullivan said. “I think they’re going to go in and give it there best shot.” Larsen said projecting how any athlete will finish this year is particularly hard, given the split of the two classes. “There’s no way to tell, especially with it being split in to two classes now,” Larsen said. “I’m familiar with it as one class, and the level of difficulty when we get there. With the separate classes, I don’t know. We could look around and say we have a shot. But we could also see a lot of tough players. We’ll be surprised one way or another, I guess.

Mushrooms are one of those crazy foods that people either love or hate: mushrooms are neither fruit nor vegetable, have weird textures, and grow in dead and decaying plant matter. But fungus or not, mushrooms have been part of the human diet for thousands of years and continue to rise in popularity. As interest in food has become trendier and the local food movement has grown, so has the interest in local, unusual mushrooms. Today most areas have multiple mushroom growers that sell to nearby restaurants, markets and to the public. Additionally, many of these farms offer classes or workshops to teach an aspiring fungivore the art and science behind growing their own. Wild mushrooms are most common in the spring and fall months but cultivated and dried mushrooms can be found throughout the year. The specifications of choosing fresh mushrooms depend mostly on the species but overall, choose those with unblemished caps and smell earthy, never fishy. Refrigerate in a single layer, covered loosely with damp paper towels, allowing for air to circulate around the mushrooms. Save woody Johan Bolhuis - stems for stock, and dry or freeze Using mushroom stock enhances the depth of flavor to any recipe, and can make vegetarian cooking much more exciting.

Braised cauliflower mixes up the flavor By KATIE WORKMAN The Associated Press

Any time capers mingle with anchovies and garlic, I’m happy. You might think these are very strong flavors, but when they are used sparingly they add a lovely layer of salty/savory flavor to whatever dish they grace. When I serve this to my family, do I mention there are anchovies in it? Nope, I don’t. Do they think it’s delicious? Yup, they do. The cauliflower is browned in the pan before it’s braised, and don’t cook it too long in the liquid or it will lose its great, firm texture. If you want a vegetarian version, skip the anchovies and use vegetable broth. I was making this for the second time when I realized I didn’t have fresh parsley, so I grabbed a bag of baby arugula from the fridge and it was a happy amendment.

Braised Cauliflower with Anchovies and Capers AP photo

Braised Cauliflower with Anchovies and Capers Start to finish: 20 minutes Servings: 6 to 8

1 large head cauliflower 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon finely minced garlic 2 tablespoons capers, drained Coarse or kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 4 anchovies, rinsed and minced Splash dry white wine 1 cup less-sodium vegetable or chicken broth

1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley or 1 cup baby arugula leaves, roughly chopped (optional) Cut the cauliflower into small florets. Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven or heavy stockpot over medium high heat. Add the cauliflower and cook, stirring occasionally until it starts to lightly brown in some spots. Shove the cauliflower to one side and add the garlic, capers, and anchovies so that they hit the bottom of the pan, and season with

salt and pepper. Stir into the olive oil until the garlic turns golden and you can smell everything. Stir the mixture into the cauliflower, and season with salt and pepper, so the anchovy mixture coats the vegetables. Pour in the wine and give everything a stir. Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Cover the pan, and reduce the heat so the liquid remains at a simmer. Cook until the cauliflower is just tender but not mushy, from 8 to 10 minutes. If there is more than ½ cup liquid left, remove

the cauliflower with a slotted spoon and simmer the remaining liquid until there is less than ½ cup, then pour it over the cauliflower. Stir in or sprinkle over the parsley or arugula (if using). Serve hot or warm.

Tuna never tasted as good as in this Asian-inspired salad By MELISSA D’ARABIAN The Associated Press

Canned tuna is underrated. Sure, we keep a can or two on hand for the occasional tuna salad sandwich, but most of us don’t stray far from the sandwich for this tasty and versatile protein. Canned tuna can be used as a protein swap in many recipes (tuna tacos are amazing!), and it’s shelf-stable, inexpensive and chock-full of protein. One cup of drained canned tuna packs in about 40 grams of protein, so it’s a filling enough for either lunch or dinner. Budget cooks take note: Tuna is easy to nab on sale for a buck or so a can, even for name brands, so load up when it’s on sale since it has an incredibly long shelf life. Most tuna seems to be packed in water these days to save calories. But

I personally like the flavor better of oil-packed fish – it tastes more like fresh fish – so I usually keep a couple of oil-packed cans around for some recipes where I want a richer flavor, and I just drain the oil away. Also, I always keep a can (or jar) of high-end tuna in my pantry – a quality tuna packed in good olive oil will turn your tuna dishes into restaurant quality, but you’ll definitely pay several dollars more. Your call. Once you have a nice stock of canned tuna in the pantry, get creative. Consider almost any recipe where you use chicken or fish, and see if you can’t substitute tuna. If you are worried about having taste flashbacks to your childhood of eating pink-spiky tuna-flecked mayo slathered between slices of white fluffy bread, my suggestion is to think about ethnic flavor profiles to redirect your tastebuds – Italian

(mix tuna into spicy tomato sauces), Thai, Chinese, and Mexican dishes made with canned tuna are some of my favorites.

Five first-year nursing students at Kishwaukee College were the recipients of Littmann Stethoscopes from the Community Support Group at 3M.

The nursing students who received Littmann stethoscopes are: Terry Bunger, Rochelle; Jordan Damisch, Kirkland; Lanee Faivre, DeKalb; Soscha Lucero, Malta; and Courtney Tucker, Oregon. The Community Support Group is the local arm of 3M that provides charitable assistance and support. Although the national 3M Corporation provides

recognizable support in a variety of ways, including scholarships to Kishwaukee College and other educational institutions across the country, the Community Support Group is designed to be community-specific by volunteering, assisting and donating in ways that are unique to the local community. Since 2010, the 3M Community Support Group in DeKalb has been awarding Littmann stethoscopes to deserving KC nursing students each semester. The Littmann Stethoscope is manufactured by 3M and is considered the “Cadillac” of stethoscopes. For information on Kish. College, visit; for more information on the 3M Corporation, visit

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff symptoms, and now is over, does it matter? For example, are you more likely to die from heart disease in the future? The research team compared three groups: 1. People hospitalized for heart attacks that caused symptoms. 2. People with silent heart attacks. 3. People without heart attacks. Not surprisingly, the risk of death in the first group was nearly five times as high as in the third group. Surprisingly and unfortunately, the risk of death in the silent heart attack group was three times as high as in the third group. Older studies had more or less come up with similar findings. The current study extended these observations to a much more diverse population. The excess risk associated with silent heart attacks was found to be present in both men and women. And it was found in both white and African-American patients. Other races were not examined in this study. So having a silent heart attack is a serious warning sign. It might not be quite as serious an omen as a heart attack that did cause symptoms. But it’s a lot more serious than never having had a heart attack. It means it is much more important for you to observe a healthy lifestyle, and to treat any conditions (like high blood pressure or high cholesterol) that put your heart at risk. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

Dear Dr. K: I recently had an ECG in preparation for a surgical procedure. The doctor said it showed I’d had a silent heart attack. How could I have had a heart attack and not known about it? Dear Reader: I know it sounds strange. After all, on television, heart attacks are portrayed in rather dramatic fashion. Typically, you see a person clutching their chest in agonizing pain. This mental image is embedded in our culture. But my colleague, Dr. Deepak Bhatt, a cardiologist at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital, cites a recent study that is the latest to show heart attacks often can be “silent.” Silent heart attacks are real. That is, the blood supply to a part of the heart has been shut down, and a part of the heart muscle dies as a result: That’s what a heart attack is. However, in silent heart attacks, people often experience symptoms other than severe chest pain. Instead, they may have just a pressure or heavy feeling in the chest, or pain in the neck or jaw, or shoulder and arm. Or they may have shortness of breath, sweating, extreme fatigue, dizziness or nausea. Whatever the symptoms, they may not attribute them to a heart problem. They may not even bring the symptoms to the attention of a doctor. Or they even may have a heart attack that causes no symptoms. The recent report from the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study was a large one: Nearly 10,000 healthy people were followed for nearly a decade, on average. In nearly half (45 percent) of those who had a heart attack, the heart attack was “silent.” If a heart attack didn’t cause any

My boyfriend and I are mature adults who enjoy photography. He brings his camera when we go to the beach or sporting events – even to the store. He’s learning all the time about how to use light correctly and his zoom lens. When we get back and I download the pics from his camera, the majority of shots are of women’s chests, behinds and pretty faces. He has snapped many of them while they were standing right next to me. (There are very few shots of me – ever.) When I ask if he wants me to delete the photos, he says no. I don’t understand why he would keep pictures of strangers. He says he’s like any photographer – he likes to review his photos. I tell him it hurts my feelings to think he enjoys looking at other women more than at me. It would be different if they were beautiful portraits, but they’re not. It is painful I’m not included. Am I wrong to feel unimportant and ignored? – Out Of The Picture Dear Out: You are entitled to your feelings, and they might be justified. Because you identify this man as your boyfriend, I assume you have an exclusive relationship. There always will be women around who are younger and prettier. That’s life. Because you can’t control his taste in subjects, my advice is to quit downloading his pictures for him if they make you uncomfortable. Dear Abby: My fiancé and I have a loving relationship. He is affectionate – hugging, kissing, etc. But he doesn’t have a high libido, which I am concerned about because he’s only 26. He has confessed to me he’s had relations with men in the past, and I’m thinking he might be bisexual. While that does not concern me whatsoever (after all, it’s one thing to be attracted to someone and another thing entirely to cheat), I worry he thinks he couldn’t share this with me, and it may lead to lies. I also am worried if I confront him with this, he may be offended or think I think less of him. What should I do? – Loving Relationship In Michigan Dear Loving: You and your fiancé are overdue for a frank talk. He has told you he has had more than one same-sex relationship, so it’s fair to consider him to be bisexual. That he didn’t use that word doesn’t mean he was dishonest. That you have continued your relationship after learning about his sexual history should indicate to him you don’t think less of him. As to the strength of his libido, no two individuals are alike. If he is able to provide you with what you need, I don’t think you need to be concerned. If not – as I said before, you have to talk with him about it. Dear Abby: How do you get a man to help you financially? – Anony-miss In Beverly Hills Dear Anony-miss: Tell him you need his help and hope he’s the type who likes rescuing women.

Newspaper Enterprise Association TODAY – You’ll have plenty of options when it comes to work, money and the opportunity to find your niche.

DeKalb Stacy Keach said, “I can’t think of anything that requires more finesse than comedy, both from a verbal and visual point of view.” In bridge, everyone is taught how to finesse very early, and -- no joke -almost everyone, especially below the expert level, loves to finesse. But do you know anyone who was warned that unless the contract is on the line, not to finesse when the failure of that finesse would result in more tricks being lost than if the finesse had never been taken? Today, South is faced with two minor-suit finesses. Which should he take, if any, in either six no-trump or seven no-trump after West leads the spade jack to declarer’s ace? North’s weak-two opening promised a good six-card suit and 6-10 high-card points. South, wishing to protect his ace-queen minor-suit holdings at trick one, jumped to six no-trump. South starts with 11 top tricks: three spades, six hearts, one diamond and one club. To get a guaranteed 12th trick is easy: Cross to dummy with a heart and run the diamond jack. Even if the finesse loses, declarer gets a second diamond trick to bring his total up to 12. In seven no-trump, though, South seems to have a choice -- but he doesn’t. If the club finesse is winning, that only gets him up to 12 tricks. Declarer needs to assume that the diamond finesse is working. Then he gets three diamond tricks and 13 in all. If you are thinking about contracting for a grand slam that needs a finesse to work, bid it when the finesse is winning and do not bid it when the finesse is losing!
