Grinchy heart still glows after holidays POLL YESTERDAY’S I was reflecting on the holiday season and one moment in particular kept creeping into this Grinchy heart, and it had nothing to do with gifts. Since we hosted both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I had already been to the store about five times. I kept forgetting one thing after another. A little irritated, I was at Aldi with Hannah Jo for what I hoped would be the last time. Believe me, I was not irritated about hosting both days. Right now, Hannah Jo is potty training again, so it was much easier to be at our own home. Also we didn’t have to drive anywhere, and hosting allowed us to be in charge of the menu. Easiest for us on many levels. However, I was a little stressed going to the store this time because someone almost hit my car in the parking lot. Hence, upon entering the store I was unnerved. Then all of a sudden, Hannah Jo started belting out, ”Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!” She repeated that particular line over and over. I was trying to hush her up, thinking to myself, “Great, now I have one of those noisy kids annoying all the customers.” I was on the verge of threatening to put her

CHEEKY MAMA Becca Hirst in time out when an older lady approached me. She looked as though she could have been a grandmother. The gray-haired, nice little old lady said to me, ”Let her sing. She has brought a smile to my face. Her little voice is so sweet.” My heart sank. “Thank you!” I said, and felt some relief. So there we were, going up and down the aisles of Aldi while Hannah Jo sang “Jingle Bells.” Funny thing is, I started hearing some other customers sing “Jingle Bells,” too. And the real spirited kicker was another mom said how jolly my daughter was. Even with the long lines checking out, I still left Aldi in happy holiday cheer. My Grinchy heart was glowing and still is.

Info sought in DeKalb burglary string By DREW ZIMMERMAN DeKALB – Police are seeking information related to a string of burglaries within DeKalb and an attempted break-in in Genoa. A total of 10 burglaries to homes in DeKalb were reported from Jan. 1 to Jan. 10, police said. DeKalb police Cmdr. Bob Redel said most of the incidents occurred at homes in the area around Annie Glidden Road and Hillcrest Drive and were within two or three blocks of each other. The burglaries are thought to have occurred anywhere between Dec. 8 and Jan. 9. Residents were primarily away from the homes that were robbed.

Redel reminded residents of the importance of locking doors and leaving lights on within the home when they are away. In an unrelated incident, an attempted break-in also was reported at an apartment on Deercreek Drive in Genoa. Although a chair was discovered underneath a broken window, no one entered the apartment, police said. Anyone with information on these crimes is asked to contact DeKalb County Crime Stoppers at 815-895-3272 or All callers can remain anonymous.

Martin Luther King Jr. remembered through volunteer projects By STEPHANIE MARKHAM

Ken Saffron said the benefits of MLK Work Day at the Opportunity House in Sycamore were two-fold; not only did volunteers help clean windows, but they also were able to engage clients in a meaningful way by playing games like bingo. “Our folks can interact with other people from the community and become more integrated into the community, and [volunteers] get to see how we operate here and what our program is all about,” said Saffron, director of operations. “It’s a win-win I guess you could say.” The Opportunity House, which provides services to adults with disabilities, was one of about 10 local nonprofit agencies to receive help Friday from Target volunteers. Kishwaukee United Way and Target teamed up to assist 17 nonprofit agencies in DeKalb and Sycamore in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Efforts began Friday and will continue Monday. About 50 Target employees will have volunteered between the two days. Kishwaukee United Way coordinated the projects, and Target provided the volunteers as well as $10,000 in grants to be divided among the agencies. Dawn Littlefield, director of Kishwaukee United Way, said the partnership is a way to encourage volunteerism while spreading the word of local agencies’ missions. “Martin Luther King Jr. brought such a spirit of engagement and community involvement, and I think it’s just a great time for [volunteers] to reflect that back into our community,” she said. “They wanted to take his mission and spirit and expand that.” Lauren Doorlag, a human resources business partner with Target, volunteered at Opportunity House and said many volunteers selected opportunities that aligned with their interests, such as helping children through Big Brothers Big Sisters. “We have opportunities for our team members throughout the year, but especially during the week of MLK Day just to align with his passion and mission for giving back,” Doorlag said.

Phil Dinges, a Target operations manager, volunteered Friday to help clean a room that will be converted into an office for Adventure Works’ new facility in DeKalb. Adventure Works assists youth in overcoming challenges and becoming healthy adults through adven-

ture-based counseling. “I feel pretty privileged to have the life and job that I have, and to be able to reach out and help other people that maybe haven’t had the same opportunities or chances,” Dinges said. Lynette Spencer, executive director of Adventure Works, said she and

her staff members are grateful to be part of MLK Work Days for the first time this year. “We moved into this facility in August, and without a cleaning staff, it’s been up to our staff to keep things looking presentable,” Spencer said. “It just will feel much better overall for the staff and the clients to be in a really clean environment.” Derrick Lynd, a Target operations manager, volunteered Friday to help paint an office at the DeKalb County Youth Service Bureau, an organization in DeKalb that assists youth in building healthy lives and relationships. Lynd said MLK Work Days are good for motivating people to get out and volunteer. “Sometimes you won’t go out on your own to volunteer, but because you’ve got a group of people that you already work with and have fun with, getting the group together spurs you on to go do something in the community,” he said.

Egyptian Theatre could face renovations, new ownership By DREW ZIMMERMAN DeKALB – In order to maintain its status as a cultural landmark and financial asset to the community, the iconic Egyptian Theatre should be converted into a performing arts center under city ownership, according to a report commissioned by the city. A feasibility study conducted last year by the Toronto-based consulting firm Janis A. Barlow and Associates and summarized in a report to be presented to the DeKalb City Council proposed a series of recommendations to improve the venue’s operations and revenue in the future. Egyptian Theatre Executive Director Alex Nerad said that if the community is comfortable with the recommendations from the study, which cost about $50,000, it is up to everyone to come together and provide the resources. “As an organization, we’ve known for a long time that there needs to be some substantial upgrades to move forward,” Nerad said. “The key takeaway from the study is that the theater is one of the most important assets of the DeKalb community, it has tremendous economic and cultural value, and there is even more potential for that impact, which we as a community want to reach.” City ownership of the venue is just one of eight changes aimed at securing the theater’s future, and city officials are still evaluating the nearly 100-page assessment study. A presentation of the study’s recommendations scheduled for the City Council’s Monday Committee of the Whole meeting was postponed because the consulting firm’s spokesperson was ill. A new presentation date has not been set, Mayor John Rey said. The nearly 90-year-old theater is owned and operated by the nonprofit Preservation of the Egyptian Theatre organization. Only a handful of atmospheric theaters with an Egyptian theme remain in the country. Originally built in 1929 as a venue for live vaudeville performances and silent movies, the detailed interior and exterior craftsmanship eventually placed the theater in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The building lacks air conditioning, so it is closed during the summer months. Humidity levels inside the theater during the summer also cause damage, officials said. According to the study, the $100,000 DeKalb contributes in tax increment financing annually toward the theater

Key Recommendations 1. Preserve the historic elements of the Egyptian Theatre and find ways to expand its significance nationally and regionally. 2. Develop a plan and pursue a cost-effective design for a professional performing arts center to attract regional audiences. 3. Transfer ownership responsibility of the theater to the city of DeKalb to secure it as a public asset and icon. 4. Expand the governing structure of the Egyptian from a community-based volunteer board of directors to a broader-based public-private governance structure. is about 29 percent of its $350,000 annual budget. This TIF funding is set to expire in 2021. Under the study’s proposed ownership plan, the city would provide another $250,000 a year for operating costs with the potential of a $1 million budget after the completion of a cost-effective upgrade of the facility into a performing arts center. Fourth Ward Alderman Bob Snow said that the amount of tax revenue the theater generates as a regional draw is significant enough to look at every option to improve the theater’s operations, but the annual contribution could present an issue. “We may not have the resources to provide that supplement initially, but that will depend on how successful they are,” Snow said. “I think the city easily comes out with more tax revenue than the city provides in allocations every year.” Results from a public survey show that a large majority of people think the theater warrants this support from the city. “Around 85 percent of people in the consultants’ survey said they think the theater should have municipal support,” Nerad said. “I certainly understand this, but there’s a lot of budget challenges on the local and state level and just because the support may be there, there are a lot of conversations needed to determine if its even feasible.” Instead of being operated by a volunteer board of directors, the consultants suggest that the theater should instead be under a governance of private-sector leaders and people representing public interests. This was recommended because of the theater’s importance to a number of public institutions and because it would maintain a balance between public and private-sector needs. Rey said that city ownership could

This is simply the recommendation from the study and there are more talks needed to determine the best model.” While the conversion of the theater

into a performing arts center was recommended to generate more business opportunities, the study also called for the preservation of the historic elements of the Egyptian Theatre. If a performing arts center were to be developed, the consultant projects an additional 49,298 visitors to the theater over data from 2016, and additional revenue brought to nearby businesses could be anywhere from $2.34 million to $4.67 million. However, this renovation would require another feasibility study to determine the architectural requirements to adapt the theater while preserving its history. Once the study results have been presented to the City Council, it can approve the plans and allow for additional research to be conducted for architecture and other planning. “I see a significant step being determining what individual citizens preferences would be for the Egyptian Theatre,” Rey said. “I look forward to an extensive discussion with the council and the presentation from Janice Barlow.”

SYCAMORE – A DeKalb man accused of murder in the death of his 19-year-old girlfriend and hiding her body in a closet is asking a judge to lower his bond so he can help his young son. Michael G. Kulpin, 21, of the 900 block of Kimberly Drive, was charged in June with two counts of first-degree murder, aggravated domestic battery and concealment of a homicide. Police said Kulpin beat and repeatedly stabbed Moorea Des Roches, 19, inside their apartment. The couple had a son together. The child is in the custody of family members. Kulpin, is being held at the DeKalb County Jail on $2 million bond, which would require he post $200,000 cash to be released. He filed a handwritten motion from jail asking a judge to lower his bond. He said his family might be able to post a lower bond to get him out of jail before trial. Kulpin wrote that he “feels he can be a positive influence in his son’s life if released on bond given he is the sole

McCulloch. McCulloch said the criminal justice system is set up in a way that is often unfair to children. First Assistant State’s Attorney Stephanie Klein said she would oppose any request to reduce Kulpin’s bond. Last year, a judge appointed the Kane County Diagnostic Center to evaluate Kulpin. The center serves as the psychology department for the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit. Police have said Kulpin beat and repeatedly stabbed Des Roches inside their apartment during an argument June 4. He then hid her body in a bedroom closet and covered her with blankets and pillows, police said. Kulpin had been convicted of domestic battery against Des Roches in the past, Kane County court records show. He pleaded guilty in July 2015 to misdemeanor resisting police and misdemeanor domestic battery. Kane County Judge John Noverini sentenced Kulpin to 12 months of nonreporting probation, records show. Kulpin is next due in court March 9.

Oswego man held in child sex case; more charges possible By BRETT ROWLAND SYCAMORE – An Oswego man is being held on $750,000 bond after being charged with predatory criminal sexual assault of a child. Todd M. Falkos, 38, of first block of Sherwick Road, Oswego, faces six to 30 years in prison if convicted of the felony charge. Assistant State’s Attorney Carrie Thompson said Thursday that similar charges against Falkos could be filed in Kendall County. An investigation by Sandwich police has identified one victim, she said. The crime occurred in 2011, according to charging documents con-

tained in court records. Falkos was arrested Thursday. A warrant for his arrest had been issued Jan. 6. Judge Phil Mont go me ry se t bo nd at $750,000. He cited the Todd M. facts and circumstancFalkos es of the charges and the probability that additional charges would be filed in his decision. DeKalb County Public Defender Tom McCulloch said he plans to seek a bond reduction for Falkos. Falkos is due in court for a preliminary hearing Feb. 10.

OAK CREST DeKalb Area Retirement Center

The gift that keeps giving… Sometimes it’s difficult to pick out just the right gift for a friend or a family member. If you’re like us you’ve probably stood in line at a store with an item in your hand and wondered if it would be the right size or color. Sometimes, you even leave the store empty-handed because they just didn’t have that perfect gift that conveys how much you care. When it came time to move, and we made the decision to make Oak Crest our home, we really saw it as a gift to ourselves. After all, a beautiful home in a community near our family with the guarantee of future care and services was the perfect fit. Add to that, everything we need – church, banking, medical care and shopping all within one mile. Then it hit us. Maintaining our independence and making our own decisions is a part of who we are and moving to Oak Crest when we did was God’s perfect timing. We enjoy all that Oak Crest has to offer and will never place our family and friends in the position of caregivers. As far as we’re concerned Oak Crest has it all wrapped up in one beautiful package. Talk about the gift that keeps giving.

Time is money

New survey looks at how people want to spend their retirement By MELISSA ERICKSON More Content Now

Valuable advice and local advertising geared toward your needs. Informative features on popular topics that range from recession-related finance to going green in your golden years!

When it comes to retirement, most people think about money – will they have enough? Instead of looking at savings, a new survey examining baby boomers and retirement switches the focus to time. While boomers may or may not have enough cash, when it comes to retirement they’re time-affluent. The report by Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Age Wave, “Leisure in Retirement: Beyond the Bucket List,” examined the priorities, experiences and challenges of leisure in retirement. This study is based on a survey of more than 3,200 respondents nationally representative of age, gender, ethnicity, income and geography, said Erin McInrue, vice president of research for Age Wave. “Our comprehensive investigation considers the range of things that people may do for leisure, including personal growth and education, volunteering and giving back, social activities and especially leisure with family and friends, in addition to travel,” McInrue said.


The survey shows good times ahead for the nearly 10,000 boomers who retire each day. More than nine in 10 retirees reported that they have greater freedom and flexibility to do what they want at this stage in their life regardless of how much money they have saved. Another 85 percent said that retirement has given them more time to connect with family and friends. “Our study reveals a coming leisure boom. Age 65-plus is the time in life when people have the most free time available. Last year, American retirees had 126 billion hours of leisure time. As our age 65-plus population grows (due to longevity and the large baby boomer cohort reaching age 65), the number of Americans who are at their most time-affluent stage will outnumber those in their most ‘time-constrained’ stage (age 35-44). These retirees will have 2.5 trillion hours of leisure time to fill over the next 20 years – leaving room for the leisure economy to grow and prosper,” McInrue said.

Boomers are a workaholic generation, with 76 percent saying they work while on vacation. If they have difficulty separating work and leisure during their working years today, how will they break the workaholism addiction and embrace a life stage that has been traditionally filled with only leisure? According to the study: • By trying new things: 88 percent of retirees say retirement is a time for new beginnings, and two-thirds (66 percent) say they prefer trying new things in their leisure vs. doing things they’ve already done. • By focusing on experiences: 95 percent of retirees say they prefer having more enjoyable experiences vs. buying more things. • By seeking fun: What retirees want most from their travel activities – whether it’s with a spouse, children or grandchildren – is fun. • By staying connected: Retirees realize the need to continually feed the friendship pipeline, and those age 65-plus are more likely than any other age group to agree that it’s important to stay with connected with friends.

Probe finds years of civil rights violations The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – The Justice Department on Friday laid bare years of civil rights violations by Chicago police, blasting the nation’s second-largest department for using excessive force that included shooting at people who did not pose a threat and using stun guns on others only because they refused to follow commands. The report was issued after a yearlong investigation sparked by the 2014 death of a black teenager who was shot 16 times by a white officer. The federal investigation looked broadly at law enforcement practices, concluding that officers were not sufficiently trained or supported and that many who were accused of misconduct were rarely investigated or disciplined. The findings come just a week before a change in administration that could reorder priorities at the Justice Department. Under President Barack Obama, the government has conducted 25 civil rights investigations of police departments, including those in Cleveland, Baltimore and Seattle. President-elect Donald Trump’s position on the federal

AFSCME members to vote on strike authorization

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois’ largest public-employee union told its members Friday that they soon will vote on whether to authorize a strike if contract talks with Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration remain stalled. The vote would not guarantee a strike, but indicate whether members of the state council of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees want to give their bargaining committee power to walk off the job after Rauner dismissed a contract-compromise plan this week. In that plan, the union offered to forgo any general wage increases for a fouryear period, although newer employees

His nominee to be attorney general has expressed reservations about the system, especially the reliance on courts to bring about changes. Asked about the investigation’s future, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said talks between the city and the government would go on regardless “of who is at the top of the Justice Department.” Chicago officers endangered civil-

ians, caused avoidable injuries and deaths and eroded community trust that is “the cornerstone of public safety,” said Vanita Gupta, head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division. The federal government’s recommendations follow an especially bloody year on Chicago streets.

6 arrested when protesters interrupt mayor’s speech

CHICAGO – Chicago police said six people were arrested after they disrupted Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s speech during an interfaith breakfast honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said all six arrested Friday morning at the Hilton Hotel will face trespassing charges. One of the six also will be charged with aggravated battery for becoming aggressive with an arresting officer. The Chicago Tribune reported the protesters were housing advocates who


Transient charged in death of woman, attack on boy

OTTAWA – Prosecutors said a transient has been charged with stabbing to death a rural Illinois woman and assaulting an 11-year-old boy. Murder, predatory sexual assault of a child and aggravated battery charges were filed against 38-year-old Carl E. Lenard. During a hearing Thursday, State’s Attorney Karen Donnelly said Lenard fatally stabbed 41-year-old Damaris Lopez Pacheco Alvarado on Tuesday at her home west of Streator. Donnelly also alleged Lenard beat the boy and assaulted him before the victim was able to escape and inform a neighbor. Donnelly said Lenard attempted to flee in Pacheco’s vehicle, which he crashed

York and Los Angeles. The Justice Department began the Chicago investigation in December 2015 after the release of dashcam video showing the fatal shooting of 18-yearold Laquan McDonald, who was walking away from police holding a small folded knife. The video of the shooting, which the city fought to keep secret, inspired large protests and cost the city’s police commissioner his job. The report “confirms what civil rights lawyers have been saying for decades,” said attorney Matt Topic, who helped lead the legal fight for the release of the McDonald video. “It is momentous and pretty rewarding to see that finally confirmed by the U.S. government.” Investigators described a class for officers on the use of force that showed a video made 35 years ago – before key U.S. Supreme Court rulings that affected police practices nationwide. When instructors spoke further on the topic, several recruits did not appear to be paying attention and at least one was sleeping, the report said. Justice Department agents who questioned Chicago officers found that only 1 out of 6 who were in training or who just completed the police academy “came close to properly articulating the legal standard for use of force,” the report said.

Former teacher sentenced for abusing 15-year-old

CHICAGO – A former Chicago high school teacher received a probation sentence after pleading guilty to sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy. Benjamin Zollo pleaded guilty to aggravated criminal sexual abuse charges. Cook County Circuit Judge Thomas Gainer sentenced him Thursday to two years of probation. Prosecutors said the 34-year-old Zollo, who taught at Lincoln Park High School, contacted the boy online. After exchanging messages for a month, the boy went to Zollo’s home, where they had sex. They eventually met every two weeks, before the teen spent the night with the Zollo on New Year’s Eve 2015. Prosecutors said the boy’s parents were upset he was gone all night and called police. When questioned by his father, the boy admitted where he had been.

Trump at odds with some Cabinet choices By CALVIN WOODWARD The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – You can’t really call them “yes men.” Maybe we’re meeting Donald Trump’s “yes, but” men. Some of the incoming president’s most important Cabinet choices are at odds with him on matters that were dear to his heart as a campaigner and central to his promises to supporters. Trump said he doesn’t mind the disconnect. He wants his Cabinet members to be themselves, “say what you want to say,” he told reporters Friday in New York. “I may be right, they may be right.” But despite that breezy dismissal, the differences laid bare in a week of confirmation hearings raise questions about whether Trump will roll over his Cabinet on immigration, Russia, national security and more, bend to his top advisers’ stated convictions or watch them backtrack from pronouncements that may be helping them win Senate approval. It’s a team of rivals, with this twist: The mercurial Trump can be a rival to himself. He proposed, then appeared to move away from, a plan to freeze the entry of Muslims into the U.S. His similarly provocative call for a big border wall with Mexico has gone through several incarnations. His crowd-rousing vow to prosecute Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton melted into a tribute to her public service when she conceded the election. On Friday, he tweeted anew she was “guilty as hell.” Trump’s team isn’t nearly as inflammatory or unorthodox. Several are more traditional Republicans who toed the line on established GOP positions, even when they contradicted the boss. The result is Trump is assembling a potentially discor-

Russian hacking

Trump’s nominees to run the CIA, State Department and Justice Department gave credence to U.S. intelligence assessments on Russian hacking that the president-elect ridiculed for weeks before he grudgingly accepted it Wednesday. Kansas Republican Rep. Mike Pompeo, nominated as CIA director, said the report concluding that Russia interfered in the U.S. election trying to help Trump win was “an analytical product that is sound.” Rex Tillerson, nominated as secretary of state, told senators it’s a “fair assumption” the hacking couldn’t have happened without Russian President Vladimir Putin’s approval. Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, chosen for attorney general, said “I have no reason to doubt” the report’s conclusions.

Russia and NATO

Trump’s national security and diplomatic leaders have voiced sharp skepticism about the prospects for a warmer relationship with Moscow despite Trump’s praise of Putin.

“Russia is raising grave concerns on several fronts,” retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, chosen to run the Pentagon, told senators. “I have very modest expectations for areas of cooperation with Mr. Putin,” who he said is “trying to break the North Atlantic alliance.”


In the campaign, Trump proposed a temporary ban on foreign Muslims entering the U.S. and at one point suggested requiring Muslims already in the country to register. The proposals then evolved into one that would halt immigration from countries linked to terrorism, though Trump never explicitly took a Muslim ban off the table, nor renounced the registry advocated by some who supported him. Tillerson told senators: “I do not support a blanket-type rejection of any particular group of people.” Retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, nominated to lead the Homeland Security Department, also weighed in: “I don’t agree with registering people based on ethnic or religion or anything like that.” Nor should religion be a basis for criminal or counter terrorism investigations, he said.

Thumbs-up to new local library leaders Thumbs-up: To new library leaders. DeKalb County’s two largest municipal libraries – in DeKalb and Sycamore – have new directors this year. In Sycamore, Jesse Butz has taken over as the new director of the library, and said he plans to work to establish a public fundraising group to help the library do more without asking for extra funds from taxpayers. Meanwhile, in DeKalb, Emily Faulkner takes over as director starting Monday. The digital age has changed the way libraries operate, and the role they are expected to serve in our communities. We wish both new library leaders luck in making their facilities useful and relevant resources for the communities they serve. Thumbs-down: To Illinois House Democrats who once again voted Michael Madigan their leader. Madigan was elected to his 17th term as speaker, putting him on track to soon become the longest-serving statehouse speaker in modern U.S. history. During Madigan’s tenure, Illinois has amassed a $120 billion pension deficit, the worst in the nation; more than $11 billion in unpaid bills to vendors who already have supplied the services they are owed for; the worst credit rating of any state in the country; and we could go on and on. Yet House Democrats think he is their best option to lead them for another two years? No, the truth is they are afraid of him and his power. Shame. Thumbs-up: To the lone Democrat, Rep. Scott Drury of Highwood, who did not vote for Madigan. “I am confident that my vote represents the view of the vast majority of my constituents,” Drury, who voted “present,” said in a statement. “In that respect, the decision was easy. Unfortunately, I have learned that what is popular with constituents does not always align with what is popular in Springfield. In the end, I chose the public over politicians. ... In the weeks leading up to this vote, I seriously explored the possibility of running for speaker of the House. To my knowledge, no Democrat has ever taken this initial step in the Madigan era. It became clear that for myriad reasons a majority of the General Assembly is not ready for a new speaker. Finally, I have been asked if I fear repercussions. With history as a guide, the answer is yes.” So now we’ll get to see how Madigan chooses to punish Drury for his defiance. Thumbs-up: To a new superintendent hired in Genoa-Kingston School District 424. Brent O’Daniell will take over as superintendent before next school year, replacing retiring superintendent Joe Burgess. O’Daniell will earn $165,000 annually when he starts running District 424. He has been superintendent of Virginia Community School District 64, northwest of Springfield, for the past five years. We hope O’Daniell will enjoy living in the community and hope he can help the district serve students effectively and efficiently. Thumbs-down: To a generational salary gap. Members of the millennial generation earn about 20 percent less than baby boomers did at the same stage of life, according to a new analysis of Federal Reserve data by the advocacy group Young Invincibles. The analysis, released Friday, found millennials – those born roughly between 1981 and 1997 – have about half the net worth of baby boomers, own homes at a lower rate and have a considerably higher rate of student debt. This is a shame, as the long-held hope of parents has always been that their children have it better than they did – not worse. And what about Generation X? Everyone forgets Generation X.

Rubio cannot back down now By JENNIFER RUBIN The Washington Post

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., was the most effective questioner on the GOP side in Wednesday’s confirmation hearing for Rex Tillerson for secretary of state. He asked crisp questions, pointed out where Tillerson dodged and demonstrated the degree to which Tillerson was uncomfortable giving definitive answers on a range of issues, including human rights. The committee members have other concerns, including Tillerson’s tenure at ExxonMobil. Democrats pressed him on his record of doing business through an affiliate with countries such as Syria and Iran, and asked him to explain ExxonMobil’s record of denying climate change. Tillerson’s unfamiliarity with the inner workings of government and of diplomacy would put him in a much weaker position than, say, a John Bolton, who possesses granular knowledge of issues and experience taming State Department bureaucracy. For those concerned the permanent foreign service corps would undermine a newcomer at every turn and slow-walk policy initiatives, Tillerson is a problematic choice. His reliance on generic statements and refusal to reveal policy positions emphasized just how much he will have to learn. A steep learning curve for a secretary of state in times such as these may be deeply worrisome, particularly when national securi-

ty appointees in the White House (e.g. Michael T. Flynn) may capitalize on a weaker-than-usual secretary of state to push personal agendas. Rubio did not say how he would vote on Tillerson’s confirmation. However, as one who was perceived as less than resolute during and after the presidential campaign, Rubio should align his votes with his rhetoric if he wants to silence critics. In the end, Rubio might conclude other Trump picks could be worse than Tillerson, or that Tillerson is at least open to listening to Congress and learning as he goes. He might find that Tillerson will try to live down his reputation as soft on Russia, and therefore be more aggressive in his Russia policy than others would. Regardless of the reason, however, if he winds up voting to confirm Tillerson, he only will have underscored criticism that his bark is worse than his bite. Rubio has a remarkable opportunity to distinguish himself from more politically craven, hawkish colleagues such as Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who introduced Tillerson, and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., who backed Tillerson before hearing a word of testimony. We will see how much Rubio has learned from the presidential experience and his first term in the Senate. Does going along to get along pay off, or does forging your own way on issues that may put you at odds with the party make you into presidential material? The Tillerson vote will be telling.

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.

Worst of the Times – coverage filled with deceit Now that I no longer do a weekly TV show, I have more time to read my local paper. Sadly, that’s The New York Times. The Times actually does some good reporting, but their political and economic coverage is filled with deceit. Can I find deceit every day? You bet. Take a look at a few days just last week. • Thursday – the front page: “NAFTA’s promise is falling short, Mexicans agree” Wow, the Times now embraces Donald Trump’s position on trade? Economists estimate that 14 million jobs depend upon NAFTA, but people everywhere often oppose trade because the smaller number of jobs lost is more visible than gradual gains. What evidence of NAFTA’s failings does the Times offer? Oddly, the article says “the workforce has grown.” Ah, hello? Job growth is good. Jose Luis Rico “earns well under $10,000 a year.” Not much by American standards, but good for Latin America, and the reporter mentions that Rico got “a handful of raises.” Have you gotten “a handful of raises”? Despite NAFTA, the “gap between the nation’s rich and poor persists.” Duh. Trade doesn’t eliminate wealth gaps – it may increase the


Questions for DeKalb city, school board candidates

To the Editor: On two recent occasions, I submitted questions to this paper for the mayoral and aldermanic candidates in DeKalb; on one occasion Irene Rubin also has submitted questions. Our goal is to encourage discussion by candidates and voters on these questions and other topics. We hope that others will submit questions. So far, several candidates have acknowledged receipt of these questions, but to this date, no answers have been received. In this letter, I pose further questions for the city candidates as well as beginning a series of questions for the 10 school board candidates.

VIEWS John Stossel gap because the cleverest traders get rich. But since the poor gain jobs and wealth, too, so what? Finally, the clueless Times reporter quotes a Mexican politician and crony capitalist complaining: “Government has not established policies to protect Mexican businesses.” But “protection” for some businesses is corporate welfare – welfare for the rich. It hurts poor people by raising prices. The Times wants that? Maybe they’re sucking up to Donald Trump and his friend Carlos Slim, Mexico’s richest crony capitalist, and the Times’ biggest shareholder. • Friday – a front-page story smears David and Charles Koch. First, the reporter labels them “the ultraconservative billionaire brothers.” Ultra? Why ultra? Why conservative even? The Kochs favor liberal immigration rules, gay marriage, legal drugs, ending racial discrimination in criminal sentencing, fighting in fewer foreign wars and getting rid of government bailouts and favors for businesses, including their own.

I encourage candidates to work out answers to these questions and hope others will join in the discussion by submitting their own questions. Additional questions for city candidates: 1. How can we handle the continuing deficit from the DeKalb Taylor Municipal Airport? 2. What is your response to the extensive report from the consultant on the future of the Egyptian Theatre? 3. When should the city contract out for a study, and when should it do such a study in-house? 4. How will you encourage the city to use the pro bono assistance available from many Northern Illinois University and Kishwaukee College staff members? A start for questions for school board candidates:

David Koch supports higher taxes to reduce the deficit. Which of those things is conservative?! Maybe the Times calls the Kochs “ultraconservative” because a political group they support points out, “Policies that subsidize electric vehicles and solar panels for the wealthy raise energy prices” and gas and oil are cheaper for everyone. The reporter adds that the group even showed a “video of people driving, turning on lights and plugging in appliances.” Oh, no! How terrible! The reporter claims the “Kochs have long worked to quash ... renewable energy sources like wind and solar.” But they haven’t! They try to quash subsidies for renewables. Big difference. Doesn’t the Times know the difference? The Times appeals to its Trump-hating readers with a headline that begins “Sensing Gains Ahead Under Trump, the Kochs ...” But the Kochs didn’t give Trump a penny. It’s time for the Times to stop calling all their opponents “conservatives.” Some of us are libertarians. America has other choices besides the anti-capitalism of the Times and anti-capitalism of Trump.

• Saturday – the Times quotes leftwing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo saying it “defies common sense” to have a nuclear power plant near New York City. Green activists oppose the plant and Cuomo now says it will close. But where will New Yorkers get power? The “options include hydropower from Quebec and power from wind farms.” Great. But what will we do when the wind doesn’t blow? At least the reporter admits that “New York City could be burdened with higher energy prices.” Could be? Will be! • Sunday – “Trump Denies Climate Change, These Kids Die.” That’s the headline on a Nicholas Kristof column about drought in southern Africa. Apparently, there were no dry spells before “man-made global warming.” In truth, starvation has decreased dramatically thanks to fossil fuels. Starvation now is caused by corrupt governments, not climate change. If there’s a way to blame capitalism even as it improves the world, the Times will find it.

1. What ideas do you have on handling the repayment of the school building bonds? 2. What ideas do you have on improving intergroup relations and intercultural understandings among students and their parents? 3. Are you willing to support programs that will introduce computer skills/coding as well as language training at any early level in elementary school? If so, how can this be done? 4. Will you work with the school board to learn why DeKalb schools do not score all that well on state examinations given that this is a university town? Again thank you for considering these and other questions.

Americans did not want Trump

To the Editor: The American people do not want Donald Trump to be president. More than 3 million more voters cast their ballots against him than voted for him. Hillary Clinton, his Democratic opponent in the presidential contest, received more than 2.8 million more votes than he got. Through a quirk in the presidential election rules, the Electoral College, Trump won the race for president. On Friday, he will be inaugurated. As the next four years evolve, everyone ought to remember these two facts. The American people resoundingly voted against Trump to be president, but under the election rules, he will be president.

YORKVILLE – Jack Mizgalski made magic out of one tough Sycamore spot Friday. Twice was too much to ask. The Spartans senior guard was a secondary option on his team’s last possession. His clean look for a 3-pointer for the win was closed out. Yorkville’s Logan Habada got a hand on it, clinching the host Foxes’ 40-38 Northern Illinois Big 12 East win. “It was kind of a scramble situation at that point there,” Mizgalski said. “What we orginially drew up didn’t exactly turn out the way we wanted itto. It was me trying to create something, and it didn’t go in.” It did earlier for Mizgalski, who scored eight points for Sycamore (6-8, 1-3). With time running out in the first half, Mizgalski scooped up a loose ball and threw in in a near halfcourt heave for a 23-19 Sycamore lead. “I just picked it up, saw the rim and threw it up,” Mizgalski said. Yorkville (6-8, 1-2), which had lost three of four coming in, didn’t flinch. The Foxes held Sycamore to single digits in both of the last two quarters. Out of a timeout with the score tied at 38, Yorkville’s Javell Moore took the ball at the top of the key and drove hard down the left side of the lane, soaring over a Sycamore defender for a layup with 8.6 seconds left. “Extremely proud of our kids,” Yorkville coach Mike Dunn said. “They kept grinding.” Ty Sulaver scored 11 points and Keyshawn Stallworth nine for Sycamore; Sulaver’s basket with three minutes left was the Spartans’ last score that tied it 38. They didn’t appear to get the benefit of close calls late. The Foxes’ Moore stepped on the center line holding the ball under Sycamore pressure, but got a timeout that preceded his game-winner. Sycamore’s bench thought there was contact on Mizgalski’s last shot, to no avail. There was no disputing the difficulty both teams had scoring in the fourth quarter (12 points total). Yorkville, led by Moore’s 11 points, allows only 40 points a game. “Yorkville is a good team. Their coach has them prepared, and it comes down to execution,” Sycamore coach Ryan Picolotti said. “We wanted to get the ball to our point guard on that last play so he could create, and they took him away. We got it Steven Buyansky for Shaw Media to our No. 1 option. We got a good screen on his guy. The guy guarding the corner did a Sycamore’s Keyshawn Stallworth shoots over Yorkville’s Javell Moore during the Spartans’ 40-38 Northern Illinois Big 12 East loss good job of stepping up and making a play.” Friday night in Yorkville.

Game-winning shot attempt blocked by Foxes on the road


Daily Chronicle / • Saturday, January 14, 2017




Spartans’ Majerus hits 5 3s By JOSHUA WELGE YORKVILLE – Kate Majerus grit her teeth and forced a smile. Sycamore’s junior guard, spectacular shooting the 3-pointer Friday, was sour immediately after her last attempt. She looked up at the referee asking for a foul on a miss for the lead with a minute left against Yorkville. She came to accept it, though. “It was the ref’s call. We’ll see on the film later,” Majerus said. “I’m over it. Just have to leave it in the past.” So does Sycamore, which likely saw Yorkville sew up the conference title. The short-handed Foxes won a back-andforth Northern Illinois Big 12 East struggle as Yorkville freshman Lily Guerra’s off-balance one-handed runner with 2:30 left proved to be the game-winner in a 43-38 Yorkville girls basketball win. Yorkville (17-1, 8-0) hasn’t lost since November, and swept two close calls with Sycamore (12-6, 4-3) in the league. “We talked about it in the locker room. We have eyes on a bigger prize,” Sycamore coach Adam Wickness said. “We checked off conference. We’re probably not going to win it. The girls are good at compartmentalizing. We’re looking toward our next goal, which is regionals.” The way Majerus is shooting, the Spartans are in good hands. Majerus scored 17 points, hitting five 3-pointers. She drilled a long 3-pointer to draw Sycamore within 37-35, then came off a screen for another 3 to give the Spartans their last lead, 38-37, with 2:47 remaining. “That’s what I like to see out of myself,” Majerus said. “I practice so much in the gym.” The Spartans got six points from Juliet Mathey and five from Taryn Mathey. The Spartans trailed Yorkville, 22-15, midway through the second quarter, but an 8-0 run erased that deficit. The margin never was more than five again. “Kate has really stepped up the second half of the year,” Wickness said. “We challenged her to be more patient, to let the game come to her. She’s accepted it.” Katie Nolan scored 19 points for Yorkville, six coming in the fourth quarter. Nolan did it without fellow post Lindsay Harrison, diagnosed with mono earlier Friday. “I didn’t process it at first,” Nolan said. “Lindsay and I are so close. It kind of stinks. I really wanted to win. It’s my senior year, I’m not losing a home game.”


T’wolves rout Cardinals IC outscores visitor, 24-4, in 3rd quarter By EDDIE CARIFIO SHABBONA – It wasn’t as if the first half was that bad for the Indian Creek boys basketball team Friday – the Timberwolves sported a 14-point lead going into the break. But they came out in the third quarter at a whole different level, turning the nonconference home game against Stillman Valley into a 63-25 blowout. “Coach gave a great halftime speech, first of all, but that’s what we’ve been doing all year in third quarters,” said Indian Creek junior center Nolan Govig, who finished with 16 points and 13 rebounds in three quarters before being pulled for the fourth. “We just came out there, and we know that dictates the pace of the game. So we try our best to go out there and really play those first few minutes.” The Class 1A Timberwolves (15-2) led the 3A Cardinals, 29-15, at halftime, holding Stillman Valley (3-11) without a field goal for the first six minutes of the game. But in the third, Indian Creek outscored the Cardinals, 24-4, to put the game away. “We made a couple of adjustments and tried picking up the pace a little bit,” Indian Creek coach Joe Piekarz said. “We really looked to push the basketball more. It was very much a slow game in that first half. Once we picked up the pace, that’s what really helped us.” The Timberwolves tried to get the pace of play up in the second quarter at times. Trevor Guerra had two steals in the quarter where he leaped ahead of a Stillman Valley pass, intercepting it and taking it for an easy layup. Govig had one of those in the quarter, as well, but passed ahead to Guerra for an uncontested layup. In the third, Kevin Jordal added a steal and layup as part of an 8-0 run to start the quarter, then after a bucket by the Cardinals with 4:26 left, the Timberwolves rattled off 13 straight points. Guerra, the Timberwolves’ leading scorer this season, missed two early 3-point shots and finished the

Narrow defeats prove to be costly in frustrating loss By JESSE SEVERSON DeKALB – There were two matches tied in the third period between the Northern Illinois wrestling team and Ohio. The Huskies lost both. The close losses turned out to be the difference, and the Bobcats came away with a 22-10 victory over NIU on Friday night at Victor E. Court. “I try to stay optimistic about it, but it’s happened so much in the last two years that it is frustrating, especially with good teams with Ohio and Northern Iowa,” NIU senior Trace Engelkes said. “These are teams that are good, and we’re good, too. It always seems to be the little points that are hurting us. It’s a point here and a point there. It doesn’t seem like a big deal when it happens, but it all adds up.” Engelkes was one of three Huskies to come away with a victory, topping Ohio’s Arsen Ashughyan (6-3), 13-2, in a major decision at 174 pounds. Shawn Scott controlled his match for NIU at 197, topping Ohio’s Bailey Faust (5-3), 7-2, and sophomore Steve Bleise cruised to a 9-4 victory over Ohio’s Kade Kowalski (3-5) at 149. Engelkes (9-2) trailed Ashughyan, 2-1, after the first period but had a huge swing in the second. After an escape, Engelkes appeared to trip backward, but regrouped and countered Ashughyan’s attack with a takedown and a nearfall for a 8-2 advantage for the Huskies. “He threw some stuff at me that I hadn’t really felt before, those first couple of whips were super awkward,” Engelkes said. “Once I knew what he was about, I knew I was going to win that position nine times out of 10.” The three wins for the Huskies (3-4, 0-3 Mid-American Conference)

came from their top three wrestlers, and coach Ryan Ludwig said the veterans came out with an aggressive attitude. “Bottom line is with those guys, they came out and handled their business right away, they got to their attacks,” Ludwig said. “Everybody else sat back and let the fight come to them. We can’t have that.” The Huskies had their chances to swing things against the Bobcats (54, 3-2 MAC), but tough losses in the opener at 125 and later at 184 proved to be costly. At 125, NIU’s Kirk Johansen (1-1) took a 5-2 lead into the third period, but Ohio’s Shakur Laney (7-1) rallied with three late points to force overtime and eventually scored to steal a 7-5 victory for the Bobcats. At 184, NIU’s Michael Aldrich (67) trailed, 5-1, after the second period, but eventually tied it, 6-6, late in the third. However, Ohio’s Dontae McGee (2-1) came away with an escape with five seconds remaining for a 7-6 win. “The biggest thing is closing out the match,” Bleise said. “You have to be the one that’s on the attack the whole time. If you wait for the other guy to come to you, bad things are going to happen.” The Huskies were coming off a 2317 defeat to Northern Iowa on Sunday. By the numbers: The Huskies had a pair of matches – 125 and 133 – they lost despite leading after the first period. They were the first two matches of the night. Beyond the stats: The Huskies will have seven duals this month, including three this week – at Northern Iowa, against Ohio and at Southern Illinois-Edwardsville. They said it: “I want to save my body,” Engelkes said. “I got another match tomorrow. I want to try and end this. That’s why I wanted the pin so bad. I don’t want to be out here any longer than you have to, especially when you know you have to travel, too.” Up next: The Huskies wrestle at Southern Illinois-Edwardsville at 6 p.m. Saturday. The Bobcats are at Kent State on Jan. 22.

No sign of extension for Arrieta By GORDON WITTENMYER

CHICAGO – Jake Arrieta won’t be making the trip to the White House with Cubs teammates Monday, but don’t read anything political into it, he said (regardless of Twitter history). It’s because of health-related family issues back home in Texas. But it will be a conspicuous absence if only because of the decisive and high-profile role the often dominant righthander played in the Cubs’ success the past two years. It also figures to offer a glimpse Monday into what the team picture might look like a year from now – if not the urgent need the front office faces in developing and acquiring some young pitchers. The 2015 Cy Young Award winner came to terms on a record arbitration-year signing Friday of $15.6375 million for 2017 – just $112,500 more than Max Scherzer’s 2014 record for a player in his final year of arbitration eligibility. But beyond that, the chances of the Cubs buying Arrieta out of free agency with a multiyear contract rank somewhere

Pitcher Jake Arrieta is introduced at the Cubs’ annual fan convention Friday in Chicago. near the far end of the slimto-none spectrum as the Cubs prepare for the start of their title defense with spring training only four weeks away. His agent, Scott Boras, compares Arrieta to Scherzer (who left the Tigers for a seven-year,

$210 million free-agent deal after that 2014 season). The sides haven’t talked about a multiyear deal in at least a year. Neither side has plans to broach the subject anytime soon. And Arrieta, who said last season he doesn’t plan to offer

a Chicago discount, talks like a man who knows his meteoric career as a Cub has only one more season to run. “The timeline is kind of coming to an end as far as leading up to free agency,” he said Friday as the Cubs Convention opened. “I’m here for one more year. And I’m going to enjoy every moment of it. “If [an extension] happens, great. But if it doesn’t, then I’ll become a free agent. The team’s going to do what’s best for them. We’ll see where I fit into that.” It won’t be as a third player on the roster with a nine-figure contract. Especially not with the Cubs already exceeding baseball’s luxury tax threshold last season for the first time. And it likely won’t take anything less to secure the services of Arrieta starting in 2018. “As a player, you’re told where you’re going to play your whole career until free agency,” said Arrieta, who was acquired by the Cubs in a lopsided trade with Baltimore in 2013. “So that’s a nice aspect of [free agency], to be able to decide for once where you want to go.” So enjoy the no-hit stuff and the Pilates-and-kale references for what the Cubs plan is an-

other seven-month stretch of baseball. And keep an eye on what’s certain to be a steppedup effort to get at least one young, controllable starting pitcher over the next year. “There’s some great cities out there, some good teams, but I’m not worried about that now,” Arrieta said. “I’m trying to be a good teammate and perform to the best of my ability for these guys for another season, and then we’ll go from there. “I’ll always feel a part of this organization for the rest of my life, because I came over here in ’13 and turned my career around, won a Cy Young, threw a couple no-hitters, and won a World Series. So that’s going to be hard to top wherever I go, if I leave. I’ll feel a part of this city and the organization for a long time.” Note: Two other Cubs also reached agreements on oneyear deals Friday – former closer Hector Rondon ($5.8 million) and right-hander Justin Grimm ($1.825 million). Setup man Pedro Strop ($6 million) and the Cubs ($4.6 million) exchanged arbitration figures at Friday’s deadline but expect to reach agreement far in advance of a hearing.


Arrieta: Controversial tweet was ‘pro-United States’ By GORDON WITTENMYER

CHICAGO – The backlash was immediate. And to a baseball player who intentionally has sparred with opposing fans on Twitter, maybe it shouldn’t have been surprising. But Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta said his inflammatory tweet in the aftermath of the presidential election wasn’t as political as many interpreted it, judging by more than 27,000 retweets and countless comments – and certainly not bigoted, as some seemed to think. “I was simply calling out people that said they were going to leave the country if (Donald) Trump was elected,” Arrieta said. “It’s not a pro-Trump tweet; it’s not an anti-Hillary (Clinton) tweet. “I don’t consider myself a Democrat or a Republican. I want a president who’s going to do a good job. Whether it’s Obama or whether it’s Trump or Hillary.”

That context was lost in the 140-character limit of the forum when Arrieta sent this lone post-election Tweet: “Time for Hollywood to pony up and head for the border. #illhelpyoupack #beatit.” Arrieta, who did not vote, said he was surprised by the volume and largely negative response he got. David Ross “People were saying I want people deported or I’m an anti-Semite,” he said. “Why would I not like Jewish people, first of all? That doesn’t make sense. I have Puerto Rican blood in me. To think that I would want to deport people is just absurd.” It also has nothing to do with why he won’t join the rest of the team for its White House visit Monday, he said. “I would like to, but I have some other thing I have to handle,” he said, referring

to health-related issues with his family. “I feel like my stance is pretty open and honest,” he said of the thoughts behind the tweet. “It’s not to put anybody down. I was simply calling out people who have a tremendous platform of millions of followers that said they were going to leave the country if Trump was elected. I was basically calling their bluff. If you don’t want to live here, then beat it. “I’m pretty pro-United States, as I think everybody in this country should be if you want to stay here. If not, then I’m sure there’s somewhere else they can go. It was pro-United States. It was pretty simple I thought. Other people didn’t feel that way. That’s fine. Everybody can have their own opinion.” Ross in: The most popular backup catcher in baseball didn’t spend long in retirement. The Cubs hired David Ross to return this season as a “special assistant to baseball operations.” “He means so much to us,” team

president Theo Epstein said of the catcher who spent the final two years of his career with the Cubs. “He’s going to impact a lot of players really positively in this role, a lot of front office guys. He’s going to learn a lot and we’re going to learn a lot from him. “It’ll set him up well to maybe down the line decide what it is he wants to specialize in, and I’m sure he’ll thrive in that role.” Ross out: Free-agent right-hander Tyson Ross, 29, on Friday chose to sign with the Rangers over the Cubs, leaving the front office still in search of starting pitching depth in the next few weeks. Ross, who is trying to come back from thoracic outlet surgery after spending almost all of last season on the disabled list with a shoulder injury, signed a $6 million deal with the Rangers. The Cubs offered at least that much, sources said. “We went 1 for 2 on Rosses,” Epstein joked.

ASK THE DOCTORS Elizabeth Ko and Eve Glazier and Prevention classify a TIA as a medical emergency. Although impairment due to a TIA is temporary, the event itself is a warning sign that needs to be addressed. A person who has experienced a TIA is at increased risk of a full-blown stroke, particularly in the first few days after the attack. However, with prompt treatment, as well as certain lifestyle changes, you can decrease the chance of a future stroke. Your wife should see her primary care physician to discuss what happened and to begin treatment. This typically includes taking aspirin, a blood thinner that makes your platelets less likely to clump together. Aspirin should be initiated and continued under a doctor’s supervision. The good news is your wife also can make some simple lifestyle changes to decrease her risk of another episode: • Keep blood pressure under control. • Don’t smoke, and avoid secondhand smoke. • Maintain a healthy weight. • Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. • Exercise regularly. • Avoid stress. • Get enough sleep. • Limit alcohol. Even better news: Every one of these suggestions will make you healthier, too. • Eve Glazier, M.D., MBA, is an internist and assistant professor of medicine at UCLA Health. Elizabeth Ko, M.D., is an internist and primary care physician at UCLA Health.

HOW TO PLAY Each row, column and set of 3-by-3 boxes must contain the numbers 1 through 9 without repetition.

Dear Doctor: While my wife and I were working in the garden, she got dizzy and couldn’t understand what I was saying. It went away after a few minutes, but I took her to the ER anyway. The doctors said she had a TIA. What is that, and is it dangerous? Dear Reader: Your wife experienced a transient ischemic attack, or TIA. Also known as a mini-stroke, a TIA happens when part of the brain temporarily is deprived of blood flow. You were right to seek immediate medical help. The symptoms of a TIA and those of a major stroke, which is the fifth-leading cause of death in the United States, are quite similar. And though the effects of a TIA are temporary – that’s the “transient” in the name – that doesn’t mean they’re harmless. First, let’s talk about what’s going on. Ischemic strokes occur when a blood vessel in the brain becomes blocked, often by a blood clot. As a result, the part of the brain that is fed by that vessel is starved of blood. Since blood carries oxygen, which is vital to survival, it takes just a few minutes for brain cells to begin to die. Unlike in a major ischemic stroke, where the blockage persists and damage can be permanent, a TIA resolves quickly. Sometimes it takes just a few minutes, and sometimes the effects can last up to 24 hours. When the TIA is over, the person feels normal again. Symptoms of a TIA include the dizziness and cognitive lapse your wife experienced. Additional symptoms may be a sudden headache, impaired vision, numbness or weakness in the face or limbs, garbled speech, and loss of balance and coordination.

plain to the mother the “dirty words” her daughter is being taught are normal are sure to create problems for her when she’s old enough for school. Perhaps it will be the wakeup call she needs to clean up her vocabulary. However, if that isn’t effective, then it’s up to you to teach your granddaughter that dirty words cannot be used in your home. Reward her when she remembers, remind her when she forgets and institute penalties if it persists. That’s how kids learn, and you will be doing her a favor if you start early.


The South Dear Confused: Someone needs to ex-



to Russ and ask if he would be open to a bit of “coaching” to improve his social life. Tell him you have seen his dating profiles and offer to help him tweak them. If new photos are needed, suggest you go shopping together for a new outfit (or two), so he will have a more “contemporary” look. If he needs to learn to dance, show him some steps. He may accept some help if you approach the subject with sensitivity. However, I’m not sure how much more than that you can do because, in the end, Russ is going to have to find a girl whose values mirror his own. Dear Abby: Our 2-year-old granddaughter is using “dirty words” during her visits with us. We have tried ignoring her, and also popping her on the bottom while saying “no.” Her mother uses this language, so this situation is very confusing for our granddaughter. Please help. – Confused In


ming Dear Amanda: You are a good friend. Talk


DEAR ABBY My friend “Russ” is a Jeanne sweet, quiet, rePhillips served guy with a goofy side. He’s in his mid-20s, but has never kissed a girl or gone out on a date. (He is the kind of person girls regard as a brother figure.) He has no confidence and doesn’t drink, dance or let loose. I have seen his dating profiles, and they are brutally unappealing. I want to help Russ find someone before it’s too late. I hate seeing him lonely. He needs someone to give him a chance and help him learn to be more confident. I know it’s wrong to try to change someone, but I feel if he doesn’t get some help, no one will ever give him the time of day. He needs a sense of adventure and, frankly, a change of wardrobe. How can I help this “good boy” get the attention of the ladies? – Amanda In Wyo-
