editorial@kcchronicle.com ELBURN – The Fox Valley Wildlife Center in Elburn is hosting its annual Wildlife Photo Contest. Participants are asked to submit photos of wildlife native to Illinois for a chance to be featured in the wildlife center’s calendar.  “We started this contest because we started making a calendar and wanted our supporters to be included in the calendar,” Fox Valley Wildlife Center board President Andrea Krueger said. “We put one of each person who submits a picture into the calendar for the next year.”  Each photo submitted will go through a judging process that will select five winners. First place wins five calendars for the next year; second-, third-, fourth- and fifth-place winners will receive three calendars each. Professional artists will serve as judges.  “Beth Graham runs the photo contest and she finds an art shop or a couple of different artists. We like to get a few different opinions,” Krueger said.  Graham of Geneva joined the photo contest almost a decade ago. “I actually worked at the Proud Fox Gallery [of Geneva] years ago and Andrea was looking for someone to frame the winner,” Graham said. “That’s kind of how I got involved with the wildlife center. Even though I don’t frame art anymore, I still work with the photo contest and [the] Proud Fox Gallery will still frame the winning photo.” Each photo submitted will be judged on various factors, including composition, photo skill set and subject matter. 

“Last year, we had a little possum in a tree with berries and it was really popular,” she said. “It was so popular that we were even getting calls of people who wanted to purchase the photo, so that was great to see.” Submitted photos must have no humans in the photo, only wildlife native to the state of Illinois, from Canada geese to insects. There cannot be any domestic animals, so no submitting photos of pets. Photos must be 8 by 10 inches and cannot be digitally altered.  Only amateur photographers can submit photos. It costs $10 to submit each photo, up to five photos. The contest closes Feb. 17, and judg-

It just takes a few weeks to pick a winner, Krueger said. “I call the winners just before our dinner auction and all the winners and participants are featured at our dinner auction, which is March 18,” Krueger said. Fundraisers such as the calendar and photo contest are integral to the Fox Valley Wildlife Center, which relies entirely on donations.  “The money helps a lot,” Krueger said. “The money from the photo contest helps to benefit all of the baby animals we are inundated with in the springtime and all the injured adult animals that come into our hospital.”

Bill Hewitt was born and raised in Elburn. At 81 1/2, he said he is the longest living member of St. Gall Catholic Church. For the past 30 years, he and his wife have lived in Winden Oaks, a subdivision south of town. But for most of his life, until his mother passed away in 1998, he lived in the Hewitt family home, which stood at the southeast corner of Gates and Pierce streets for nearly 100 years. His grandfather, William Deckert, built the house at what was then 155 W. Pierce St. around 1900, and his mother, Clara Deckert Hewitt, was born there in 1914. She lived in the house her entire life. Bill Hewitt is the second of her six children – he has a brother and four sisters. After Clara Deckert Hewitt’s husband passed away, her friend Wilma Keller lived in the home with her. The site is now home to a

St. Gall Catholic Church garden, where a statue of the Virgin Mary resides. But to Bill Hewitt, it remains the place where he grew up. Bill Hewitt has many fond memories of growing up in Elburn, when the lives of his family and the other residents in town were inextricably linked. A recent gift from his brother, Jim, a collection of leather postcards from the early 1900s, recalled for Bill one of those relationships. The postcards belonged to the woman he and his siblings called “Aunt Bey.” Bill Hewitt said she was an “old maid,” a teacher in DeKalb. Her parents and Hewitt’s grandparents were good friends. Because she didn’t have her own family, Hewitt’s mom and dad included her in theirs. “My folks looked after her,” he said. “She came to all of our shindigs – such as graduation from eighth grade and birthSandy Bressner - sbressner@shawmedia.com days – and she had a place to Bill Hewitt, a lifelong resident of Elburn, shows leather postcards that were made around 1907.

Village Board approves new police vehicle By CHRIS WALKER editorial@kcchronicle.com MAPLE PARK – The Maple Park Police Department will be getting a new police vehicle. The motion to approve a police vehicle not to exceed $34,700 was made Feb. 7 during the Maple Park Village Board meeting. Trustee JP Dries, who has been working with a dealership to get the lowest price possible, had asked Police Chief Tony Ayala to do some comparative work for an SUV versus a

the EcoBoost systems. A lot of those areas have already moved forward and ordered vehicles.” Ayala said a couple of the benefits of an SUV include getting its drivers to emergencies faster and safer, especially in rural areas. “We’ll be able to get to emergencies a lot faster,” Ayala said. “Some vehicles end up in ditches. I’ve heard that a lot from responding to emergencies.” The purchase will come from the fiscal 2017 budget and will be funded through the utility tax fund.

Bill Hewitt, a lifelong resident of Elburn, shows leather postcards that were made around 1907.

• POSTCARDS

Continued from page 3 go [with us] for the holidays. She was a nice lady. She was good to me.” Before she passed away, Belle Washburn gave the postcards to Hewitt’s brother. Now that his brother is moving into a retirement home, he gave the collection to Hewitt when he came to town last year for Elburn Days. The collection includes about 30 cards. The ones in the best shape are mainly from 1907. They are mostly lighthearted, such as the one with a picture of a woman hanging clothes on a clothesline with the message “Just a line,” or somewhat comical, such as the one with the message “Getting out of a bad scrape,” with a picture of a man running away from a barber shop where he had been receiving a shave. There is no writing on the cards – no

name or any identifying information – other than Washburn’s name and address for where to deliver the card. According to several websites, including Kovels.com (a source for antique and collectible information), leather postcards were very popular from around 1905 to 1910. They were often made of deer hide and the pictures were burned in, although some are simply inked. Around the turn of the century, collecting and exchanging picture postcards became popular all over the world, and leather added variety to the new hobby. The U.S. Postal Service banned leather postcards in 1907 because they jammed postage-canceling machines, but they continued to be made as souvenirs until about 1910. The value of the cards today depends on their condition and design. Common postcards, including those with

comical pictures, have sold at auction for less than $1 per card. Those with pictures of important people, such as a U.S. president, sell for more. Hewitt is not interested in their monetary value. To him, they are a reminder of family history, those who were treated as family, and a time in Elburn when lives were intertwined. He recalled a time when his cousin, Charles Nash, came down with scarlet fever. Another family, the O’Briens, took him in for 30 days and took care of him during his quarantine, so Nash’s family wouldn’t have to close their hotel in town. “That’s how it was in those days,” he said. “I’ll help you. You help us.” Hewitt said he’s going to take the postcards to the Town & Country Public Library in Elburn to see whether they would be interested in them. “Maybe they’d want to have a display,” he said.

The next generation The future was evident during the girls basketball crosstown rivalry game between St. Charles East and St. Charles North as young girls quietly held the hands of St. Charles North players during the national anthem. I hope these girls, both young and old, will remember that time in their lives forever. Maybe one day, we’ll see one of these (now) younger ladies get to be the high school athletes they look up to and have their numbers on their backs.  Then it will be their turn to pass the baton to the next generation of role models.

OPTICAL FITTING CONCLUSIONS

Eyeglass frames must look good as well as fit well if they are going to be comfortable and effectively correct vision. For instance, if eyeglasses slide down the nose, the lenses’ optical centers will not line up with the wearer’s irises. As a result, the lens prescription will not provide eyes with all the available correcting ability. Sliding frames also provoke wearers into the irritating habit of having to constantly reposition the frames on their noses. Eye specialists can fix both of these problems by adjusting the temple length or modifying the fit of the temple tips around the ears. In addition, nose pads can be switched to others with a better fit or grip. Glasses say so much about your personality and personal style. At BELLO OPTICIANS, we are happy to work with you in selecting frames that complement your features. Our experienced optometry professionals work closely with you to select the proper frames to fit your budge as well as your cosmetic, lifestyle, and vision needs. For more information, please call EYEDENTITY VISION CARE, LLC, at 630-232-4211. We are located at 309 W. Hamilton St. where we offer Complete vision care for all ages. P.S. Some eyeglass frame manufacturers have petite collections with frames that fit smaller faces.

I spoke with a woman the other day who was calling to report an opossum feasting on the fallen seeds beneath her bird feeder. Her vivid description reminded me of how genuinely poorly opossums are adapted to our northern Illinois climate, where temperatures are – or at least used to be – quite chilly at this time of year. Naked ears, naked tail and a naturally low body temperature of 94 degrees Fahrenheit to 97 degrees – none of these features do opossums any favors when the thermometer dips below freezing. Add to that the fact that opossums do not hibernate, and you end up with a mammal that seems destined to fail. But then I remembered that the opossum, Didelphis virginiana, exists today in pretty much the same form its ancestors displayed 65 million years ago. And that thought, in turn, reminded me of a column I wrote in 2010. I hope you enjoy this blast from the past, which, thanks to the opossum’s resilient nature, is still relevant today. I can still picture the old photograph that hung in my folks’ hallway when I was growing up. It dated to around 1870 and showed my mom’s great-grandfather and grandmother Heyen, along with their daughters, Martha, Tildie, Katie and Rachel, decked out in somber black finery. As was the custom of the day, the whole group posed ramrod-stiff, stern gazes fixed forward, looking as though they’d just experienced something distasteful. (I always imagined they disapproved of the modern world they looked out on. Then again, it was the 1870s.) Walking past that picture multiple times a day for a decade or more, I often wondered what exactly I had in common with those German farmers who settled in Menard County, Ill. We didn’t look alike, and no doubt our behaviors differed substantially. But we were undeniably linked, and I have the family tree to prove it. Just like opossums. Well, maybe not exactly. While my ancestry was traced by a distant relative in Missouri, the opossum’s lineage was tracked down by a group of paleontologists from the University of Florida. And whereas mine starts to get murky somewhere around the time of the Civil War, the opossum’s dates to the end of the Cretaceous Period and the mass extinction that spelled the end of the dinosaurs. That’s right, that chunky, clunky little critter you see pottering around your neighborhood on garbage night has roots that go back 65 million years.

Opossums – standing the test of time

11

Photo provided by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Poorly adapted to northern climates and with an average lifespan of less than two years, the opossum is nonetheless one of our most successful mammals. Its ancestors date back 65 million years.

GOOD NATURED Pam Otto discovered a skull they say belongs to the forebear of the opossums we have today. Even more remarkable, their depiction of the ancient Mimoperadectes houdei looks an awful lot like our own Didelphis virginiana. Clearly opossums had the good fortune to, early on, develop a set of behaviors and adaptations that literally have withstood the test of time. For one, they can and will eat almost anything. Invertebrates like worms and insects might make up one meal, pet food the next, then a frog or berries for dinner and garbage for dessert. Opossums also breed rapidly and give birth to large litters – 20-plus young at a time are possible, although most litters average eight or nine. Here in Illinois, breeding occurs twice a year, so their reproductive capacity is high. And as marsupials – the only marsupial native to North America, incidentally – their young are born just 13 days after conception. These

teensy creatures, weighing just 0.0056 ounces each, creep into mom’s pouch, where they are relatively protected, and stay for anywhere from 60 to 100 days. Upon leaving the pouch, they may hitch a ride on Mom’s back for a couple of more weeks, further extending the benefit of parental protection. Another advantage opossums can claim is their ability to call just about anywhere home. Wooded areas are preferred, but shrubby fencerows work fine, too. As do attics, garages those dark spaces under sheds and decks, and basements. (Just ask my dad about that last one.) Although mostly terrestrial, opossums can from time to time be spotted hanging out in trees – although not by their tails, as is often rumored. Yes, their tails are weakly prehensile and can curl around objects, but they just aren’t strong enough to support the animal’s entire body weight. Besides, opossums have another really cool adaptation for moving about the branches – opposable thumbs on their rear feet. Despite these many fine qualities, opossums often are labeled as “dumb.” Sure, they’re slow and lumbering, and their defensive displays rarely pass

beyond teeth-baring and hissing; their well-known trick of “playing possum” (which actually is instinctive and not controllable) also makes them look like pushovers. It doesn’t help that their brain is pretty small relative to their body size. (An opossum’s brain cavity holds 25 beans; a cat’s, 125.) Even so, when scientists tested the opossum’s intelligence using the ever-popular runthrough-a-maze method, our marsupial friend actually performed better than its cat and rat competition. One thing opossums don’t have going for them is longevity. Fewer than 10 percent survive their first year, and an opossum of 2 or 3 years of age is an elder indeed. The group as a whole, though, has had what it takes to survive 65 million years on this planet. And, who knows? They may be around 65 million more.

By RENEE TOMELL rtomell@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – With flashes of wry humor, David Axelrod, a veteran of American politics and Chicago journalism, spoke Feb. 9 to a packed auditorium at Aurora University. The former chief strategist and senior adviser to President Barack Obama surveyed “From Obama to Trump: American Politics Today” in an armchair exchange with questions posed by Rick Pearson of the Chicago Tribune. Axelrod covered politics for the Tribune before entering the political arena. The two were introduced by former state Rep. Tom Cross, R-Oswego. Axelrod also is the author of a best-selling memoir, “Believer: My Forty Years in Politics.” Axelrod, whose father was a refugee from Eastern Europe, said he has been enthusiastic about democracy since he was a little boy reading words by President John F. Kennedy. He would go on to hand out leaflets for Robert Kennedy, and later left journalism to manage

“What worries me is a sense of cynicism sowed about … government, business, labor, media – all pillars of our democracy. The free press is so central to the inception of our republic. [We need] free media to keep watch over the country.” David Axelrod University of Chicago’s nonpartisan Institute of Politics director

a campaign for Illinois’ late U.S. Sen. Paul Simon. “He was one of the most honorable human beings who I knew would make me proud,” Axelrod said of Simon. Axelrod’s many campaign trails led to Obama, and he said he was impressed by the stance against the Iraq war expressed in a 2002 speech Obama wrote. Axelrod said Obama spoke against a war of undetermined losses, length and cost that would unleash sectarian war in Iraq and make America a focal point for terrorism. On a lighter subject, Axelrod said that when “Yes we can” was suggested as a slogan for Obama’s presidential bid, the candidate feared it was a corny phrase. Axelrod said Michelle Obama weighed in: “Not corny.” “[Obama] recognizes talent and har-

monized people very well,” Axelrod said, adding that a time of crisis forges a sense of camaraderie. In the weeks before taking his first presidential oath of office, Obama was dealing with an economy in freefall, and the threat that banking would collapse and add trillions to the debt. He remembers Obama’s quip: “Is it too late to ask for a recount?” Axelrod also recalled the kindness shown to him and his wife by first lady Hillary Clinton in 1999, when she was asked to speak at the epilepsy foundation the Axelrod family recently had started. Clinton, on her own before the speaking engagement, chose to spend a day at a clinic talking to doctors and patients to gain a fuller understanding of the disease facing the Axelrods’ daughter. She went on to help promote a national effort to find a cure.

Looking at the last presidential election, Axelrod said Clinton became an avatar for the establishment versus Donald Trump. He described Trump as “an improvisational figure.” “It’s hard to operate in [the White House] that way,” Axelrod said of Trump. He said one of Trump’s heroes was Flo Ziegfeld, a Broadway impresario and tremendous promoter. “In his mind, the president is always producing a show,” Axelrod said, noting that his approval rating among supporters will hold if he delivers on the promised bounty of jobs in the middle of the country, and health care at lower prices. He said Obama was known for deliberativeness, lack of impulsivity and nuance. Typical of election cycles, voters opted for the antithesis. “What worries me is a sense of cynicism sowed about … government, business, labor, media – all pillars of our democracy,” Axelrod said, citing the term “fake news.” “The free press is so central to the inception of our republic. [We need] free media to keep watch over the country.” Axelrod is the director of the University of Chicago’s nonpartisan Institute of Politics; senior political commentator for CNN; and host of “The Axe Files” podcast.

Hultgren updates work on heroin, opioid abuse By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com After conducting four meetings last summer on heroin and opioid abuse in the 14th Congressional District, U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, released a 13-page Heroin Community Action Plan to combat addiction. The new report is a follow-up to Hultgren’s first Community Leadership Forum on Heroin Prevention, held March 7, 2014, in Kane County, the report stated. Since then, Hultgren has been seeking ways to be more effective in preventing and countering heroin addiction, the report stated. The efforts included drug takeback days for unused prescription painkillers, as well as county naloxone programs that save lives by reversing opioid overdose deaths, the report stated. Barriers to treatment remain, however, because of lack of funding for treatment beds and lack of long-term beds, insurance coverage and widespread

Know more More information about U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren’s efforts against heroin and opioid addiction are available by visiting http://hultgren.house.gov/heroin. mental health issues, the report stated. Recommendations included reallocating funds for inpatient addiction treatment in Illinois; supplementing treatment with long-term sober living arrangements to prevent relapse; increasing access to naloxone, commonly known by the brand name Narcan; and giving students an incentive to attend drug prevention presentations, the report stated. Illinois remains near the bottom of states when it comes to drug addiction treatment funding, the report stated. When people suffering from addiction seek inpatient services, the state does not adequately fund treatment centers, the report stated. Hultgren’s report seeks finding

“creative ways to fund expanded access to treatment. … [and] ways to finance more beds.” In 2016, Congress passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act, a law that authorizes federal grants to address the national epidemic of prescription opioid and heroin abuse, the report stated. The four meetings over the summer documented what different counties in the 14th Congressional District did – and outlined what still needs to be done going forward, the report stated. Lake County launched “A Way Out,” allowing addicts to come to a police station and bring their drug paraphernalia without any questions asked, the report stated. DuPage County collected 70,000 pounds of unused prescription opioids and launched its own Narcan program. Kane County’s Narcan program saved 32 lives. Lake and DuPage counties are creating a Chicago Opioid Awareness

Task Force involving Cook, Kane, Will and McHenry counties to more accurately classify overdose deaths as caused by heroin or fentanyl. The report identified educating the public as a key area where more work is needed as “many communities, schools and parents do not want to admit they have a problem.” Another key area is that addiction is complicated by widespread mental health issues, according to the report, as people suffering from mental illness – such as depression – use heroin to self-medicate. Heroin is a strong anti-depressant. People in recovery are in need of long-term support to remain sober as detox and treatment are short-term, the report stated. “Individuals who do not get enough detox days and are not offered a sober home living option are the most likely to overdose and die,” the report stated. Hultgren’s report also stated that Narcan should not require a prescription.

Kaneland District 302 to buy seven gently used school buses By CHRIS WALKER editorial@kcchronicle.com MAPLE PARK – Kaneland School District 302 will be receiving relatively-new buses later this year. The district’s school board unanimously approved the purchase of seven, 1-yearold replacement buses in the amount of $557,186 less the trade-in value of $33,700 for a total cost of $523,486 during its meeting Feb. 13. Associate Superintendent Julie-Ann Fuchs said there are several benefits to buying 1-year-old buses. Each bus has less than 20,000 miles, and the school district will average 17,000 miles per year on each bus, she said. The buses have Cummins engines, which are the preferred engine for the district’s mechanics. Generally, when there is a mechanical defect with a bus, it’s identified

School, 1601 Esker Drive, Sugar Grove within the first year, she said. Fuchs said the district is also able to claim five years of depreciation for state transportation reimbursement, from the date of purchase. The 2017-18 financial projection called for the replacement of 10 buses. The district replaced five buses with 1-year-old ones earlier this school year. By now buying seven replacement buses rather than 10, the reduction amount from the final projection is $276,754. There was discussion about whether renting buses

rather than replacing them would be economically feasible. The district hasn’t rented buses since 2013. “Last year we didn’t have to rent,� Fuchs said. “If we continue to maintain our fleet we shouldn’t have to rent. In the past it was about $110 per day, per bus to rent.� Keeping older buses on-site to use as spares was also discussed, but Fuchs explained the challenge it would present. “We’d have to expand our parking spaces somewhere, which wouldn’t be a big deal, but we’d have to do it,� she said. “Secondly, we’re out of electrical to plug-in [locations] for diesel [fuel] for the winter so we’d have to go somewhere else.� In other news, the Kaneland School Board Candidate Forum is scheduled for 6 p.m. Feb. 15 at Harter Middle School, 1601 Esker Drive, Sugar Grove.

Share love beyond romance this Valentine’s Day

THE FIRST

AMENDMENT

THE WRITE PLACE Emma Chrusciel believe it’s one of the most wonderful emotions to ever be felt by humankind. However, what’s the point of loving someone if they never have any idea of how much they mean to you? Here’s where my suggestion for a revamped Valentine’s Day comes in. Even though Feb. 14 already has passed, I encourage you to do something a little different and show your friends and family just how much you love them. Whether that’s a simple text to say “I love you” or a small gift to express your appreciation, the gesture will reflect what too often goes unsaid in our romance-centric society. Of course, if there’s that special someone you want to shower with affection as well, go for it! However, let’s not neglect the people in our lives that deserve the most but often receive the least. Even though I might not have had a fancy dinner date this year or received any chocolate from secret admirers, I’m encouraged by knowing that the unconditional love of my family and friends is always there. It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day to share love with those around us, and I believe that it will mean the most at the times when it is unexpected. I hope we never have to live in the loveless world that the “Hairspray” song depicts – rather, I hope we can enter into a society where everyone gets the affection and happiness that they deserve.

LETTERS Pass the word

To the editor: Geneva needs a new library like a hole in the head. You know, like the holes we hear with, breathe with, and eat and drink with. In other words, we need it to stay alive. What will it cost? If you live in a $300,000 home, about the same as a monthly Potbelly’s Wreck with double meat. The library’s meal, however, will cater to your taste and appetite for the entire month. What could be on the menu? Millions of books, newspapers, magazines. Recorded books. Music CDs. DVDs. Free use of computers and the internet, plus access to conventional and 3-D printing. Tech space for STEM projects. Meeting rooms for book discussions and tutorials. Early literacy play areas. Equipment checkout. Outdoor reading/program areas and a commons area. Oh, yeah, and a larger reference section where professional reference librarians help research that new career or your child’s term paper due next week. Not to mention a drive-up dropoff spot and on-site parking. If all the positives don’t sway you,

clubs; 24,000 came to programs; computer log-ins topped 15,000; over 600,000 items were checked out; monthly visits averaged 22,000; and nearly 17,000 residents own library cards. Worried about the value of your home? The price of a new library more than offsets its cost when considering what prospective homebuyers look for when checking out a town: Besides schools and doggie runs, a town’s library mirrors its community. During a public hearing, I remember a library board member comparing today’s library to yesterday’s front porch, a communal place where the neighborhood gathers. I love that. I also see today’s library resembling a medieval cathedral; near the town’s center, it reflects the town’s soul. If you didn’t get the Christmas present you wanted, give yourself the gift of education, entertainment and community by voting for the library referendum in April. Pass the word – billions of them.

consider this: The present library resembles a geriatric patient suffering from multiple degenerative diseases. Costly reconstruction won’t work due to infrastructure issues. The building’s landlocked, so forget additions. Operational costs continue to skyrocket. The elevator, along with heating and air-conditioning systems, are on life support. Time to pull the plug. If you think a library functions only to hold books for a few addicted readers, consider this: Last Richard Holinger year, 3,458 people joined reading Geneva

There’s a song from the musical “Hairspray” called “Without Love,” in which the two leads, Link and Tracy, are reunited and confess their feelings to each other. The song compares a world without love to a week of only Mondays, rock ’n’ roll without a drummer, and many more meaningless and horrible things. According to the song, a world without love is a world that none of us would want to live in. Especially since Valentine’s Day just occurred, love is most definitely in the air. With couples going on special dates and jewelry stores advertising flashy and expensive gifts, our culture endlessly promotes fairytale romance and true love –  in my opinion, almost too much. Don’t get me wrong. I’m probably the biggest hopeless romantic you’ll ever meet, and I’m all in favor of elaborate flower bouquets and candlelit dinners. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with finding your soulmate, celebrating them on Valentine’s Day and enjoying the beauty and happiness of romantic love. However, why should we limit Feb. 14 to our boyfriends, girlfriends, crushes and spouses? Why not extend it to all the people we love, since, frankly, the people in our lives deserve a day to be celebrated for how much they mean to us. Love is an incredibly powerful force in all kinds of relationships, and I would argue that it is the basis of every strong relationship. It’s what holds a family together when they are faced with difficult challenges, differences in personality and even physical separation. It’s what creates a friendship between two unrelated people and makes them closer than siblings. It’s what motivates people to let go of their own selfish desires and act in the best interests of someone else. It’s absolutely essential to our lives, and I

Kaneland cranks up defense to get past Sycamore By JESSE SEVERSON jseverson@shawmedia.com MAPLE PARK – Earlier in the season, Sycamore post Keyshawn Stallworth torched the Kaneland boys basketball team. In the rematch, the Knights kept Stallworth and the Spartans’ offense in check in a 51-35 home victory against the Spartans on Feb. 10. “I think we did a better job on their personnel,” Kaneland coach Joe Conroy said. “My assistant coaches did a great job scouting. When we’re able to hold guys below their scoring average and not let somebody go off for 30-something points in a game, I think that’s huge.” In the first game between the two teams this season – a 67-53 win for Syc-

amore on Dec. 16 – Stallworth erupted for 37 points, 15 rebounds and three blocks. In the rematch, he was held to five points and four rebounds on 2-for-3 shooting. “They played more zone; last time they played man,” Sycamore coach Ryan Picolotti said of the Kaneland defense, which regularly switched between zone and man-to-man. “They did a good job of taking him away in zone and in man. They were more aggressive down there in the post.” The Knights (7-18 overall, 2-6 Northern Illinois Big 12 East) were efficient on offense, shooting 17 for 33 (51.5 percent) from the field. “I think we’re a team that people don’t realize we’ve been close in a lot of games,” Conroy said. “We’re really

young and haven’t been able to figure out how to get over the hump, and I think our defensive schemes that we’re doing are helping us to stay more competitive throughout the game.” Kaneland senior forward Dan Franck scored a game-high 18 points, grabbed seven rebounds and shot 6 for 10 from the floor, including making his first five attempts. The Knights led wire to wire thanks to Franck opening the game with a layup and a jumper in just more than a minute. “We’re sick of losing,” Franck said. “We wanted payback. They beat us by double digits last time. It’s a conference game. It’s a Friday night. We just wanted this one.” For Kaneland, Blake Feiza scored eight points, Matt Olson had seven, Jake

Hed made two 3-pointers for six points, Mason Conroy had five, Kyle Stuart added four and Rhett Espe chipped in three. The Spartans struggled offensively early, scoring only 20 points through the first three quarters and enduring an 8:32 scoreless stretch. They finished shooting 16 for 37 (43.2 percent) from the field. Defense has been the recipe for Kaneland in its victories so far this season. The Knights have held teams to 38 points or less in six of their seven wins. “We feel like we have to live and die by our defense,” Conroy said. “Our offense is not always consistent. We were very pleased tonight with our offensive play, but we felt like our defense turned some of that.”

Heiss a big influence on WCC bench Longtime basketball coach wins No. 600

Dave Heiss makes a point during a recent Waubonsee Community College men’s basketball game. Heiss has coached at the school for 32 years.

By CHRIS ROLLIN WALKER editorial@kcchronicle.com SUGAR GROVE – Watching a 25-year-old lead your basketball team is a rarity in junior college basketball. It’s just one example of how Dave Heiss has pretty much seen it all as the men’s head basketball coach at Waubonsee Community College. Consider this: Heiss was just a 23-year-old when he began coaching the Chiefs and now he’s coaching a player who is two years older than that. Heiss, who is in his 32nd season at the school, recently coached game No. 1,000 of his career. He won No. 600 on Feb. 7 as the Chiefs outlasted Prairie State College 113-108. “It’s a little bit hard to believe I’ve been doing this for so long,” Heiss said. “If you told me I would’ve been here for 32 years I would’ve been willing to bet you my paycheck that it never would’ve happened.

He had the opportunity to play for legendary West Aurora coach Gordie Kerkman before playing at the junior college level in Wyoming. Heiss finished his college career with a couple of seasons at Division II Bemidji State in Minnesota. Heiss, who also is a full-time faculty member in Waubonsee’s physical education department, doesn’t expect to be coaching for too many more years. Another legendary coach at the school, Dave Randall, retired after serving at the helm of the baseball team from 1978 until 2014. Heiss said he likely would not be around that long. “I’m thinking it’ll be four, maybe five more years,” he said. The impact he has made, though, will last forever. “The neat thing that I’ve always told our players is that once you play here you become a part of the coach Heiss family,” he said. “I hear from so many of the guys that played for me 10 years ago, 20, 25 years ago. It’s a neat thing. I don’t remember all the different games. I remember some of them, but you remember those relationships over 32 years.”

KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE editorial@kcchronicle.com STERLING – Kaneland set a school record by sending five wrestlers to the state tournament after their performances at the Class 2A Sterling sectional Feb 11. “It’s a school record, so that means a lot,” Kaneland coach Joe Orosco said. “It’s big as a program because we’ll be losing four seniors, so we’ll be in a rebuilding phase soon. Those guys have been the mainstay of our team as far as leadership and points. Hopefully, their example can motivate those younger kids to work even harder.” The Knights didn’t crown a champion, but Riley Vanik (182 pounds) and Colin Gussman (220) wrestled for titles and took second. Vanik ran into a familiar foe in the finals, losing to Morris’ Cody Baldridge 3-2 in the final round. “Cody is really strong,” Vanik said. “I’ve known him a while, and we’ve wrestled each other since sophomore year. He just came out more aggressive. You win some, you lose some.”

Described as American roots and Celtic soul, according to a news release, Switchback is the award-winning duo of Brian FitzGerald and Martin McCormack. The band draws on traditional Celtic music and original Americana songs that reflect their Irish heritage and Midwestern roots. FitzGerald and McCormack have written many Irish songs that ring as true as the ancient ballads of Finn McCool’s time and yet, as Irish-Americans, their sound carries a musical distillation that rings Irish but with a slight bluegrass reso-

Looking forward to spring ... and rosé The winters in Illinois, although milder due to global warming (or the impression of an old wine guy), always make me long for an early spring. Warmer weather, baseball, flowers blooming, green grass and trees. But, most of all ... rosé! Yes, glorious rosé! There’s nothing like a big glass of vibrant rosé shimmering on the deck, with the sun shining in the background and a gentle, warm breeze to celebrate the arrival of spring. And rosés, not the overly sweet white zinfandels, pair beautifully with fruit, salad, cheese and crackers on the deck. And I’ll tell you my secret for these occasions – I chill the wine a little extra and add a frozen strawberry or raspberry

WINE DETECTIVES Tom Minnerick as a garnish on top. As it melts, it’s delightful. Rosés are usually made from syrah, grenache or cinsault grapes. There are even a few wineries making rosé from malbec and pinot noir, although, in general, these blends tend to be drier. The best rosés, for my money, are pale in color with tastes of fresh fruit that have good acidity and aromas of apricots, watermelon or strawberries (depending on the rosé, of course). The better rosés usually come from Cotes de

Provence, France, as you might expect. Although I recently tasted an interesting rosé blend of grenache and malbec from Cardinal Rule in Sonoma that I would recommend. I’m looking forward to Anthony Rizzo blasting another home run at the first Cubs game at Wrigley Field on April 10 while I’m enjoying a great rosé. Let’s all hope it’s a warm spring.

Laugh away winter doldrums with ‘Comedy Knight!’ By SUSAN ONEILL editorial@kcchronicle.com The Kaneland Arts Initiative has found the solution for mid-winter doldrums – a “Knight” of Comedy. Green Room Improv, an ensemble-based theater company that specializes in improvisation, will perform a night of improv from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 25 in the Kaneland High School Auditorium.  Founded by a group of Judson University students in 1999 after the cancellation of the Elgin school’s theatre program, Green Room Improv has since performed nationally for a wide range of audiences and events. The company currently has residencies in two theaters, the Hemmens Cultural Center in Elgin and the Cosman Theater in Huntley, where they perform monthly.  According to Kaneland Arts Initiative Director Maria Dripps-Paulson, Green Room Improv’s performance typically works with a common topic in the news. Two teams play off each other in a “Whose Line Is It Anyway”-style of improv.  The audience should be prepared for a fun, family-friendly night of comedy, where all ages are welcome and members of the audience may be called upon to participate in the fun.  According to Green Room website, the improv comedy troupe “takes audience suggestions and true-life audience stories and turns them into hilarious theater pieces right before your eyes!” Green Room performances promise “tons of energy and an unforgettable evening,” the website states. Fascinated by the art of comedy, Dripps-Paulson said audience members come into an evening of improv as strangers, hopefully leaving cares and worries at the door. With no idea

The students will be recognized onstage for their work.  Dripps-Paulson said she would be remiss if she did not mention the Kaneland Arts Initiative’s fundraiser dinner that will takes place one day before the Comedy Knight!, on Feb. 24 at Open Range Southwest Grill in Sugar Grove.

St. Charles gears up for Restaurant Week By VIOLET MARQUARDT editorial@kcchronicle.com St. Charles will host its annual Restaurant Week from Feb. 27 to March 3. For one week, various dining establishments will make room at their tables for guests to come enjoy a meal and receive 20 percent off their bill.  More than 36 restaurants will be participating in this year’s Restaurant Week. Rita Tungare, director of community and economic development for St. Charles, took time to speak with freelance contributor Violet Marquardt about the weeklong event.  Violet Marquardt: How long has St. Charles been hosting Restaurant Week? What was the inspiration to start an event of this caliber?  Rita Tungare: This is our seventh year doing Restaurant Week. Years ago, I think there was just a couple of communities that were doing this, and we were inspired by the notion of bringing people to St. Charles to enjoy the wide range of options we have here. Our intention was to bring people to St. Charles and enjoy all that we have to offer.  Marquardt: What is Restaurant Week? How does it work?  Tungare: Here’s how the program works – a minimum purchase of $20 needs to be made, and then if the patron shows the coupon, they get 20 percent off their meal. That does not include tax, tip, liquor and only works on dine-in meals.  Marquardt: Where can people find one of the coupons?  Tungare: People can print and download the coupon from the city website, get it on their mobile device or use the postcard. We usually send out postcards about Restaurant Week in mid-February and we’ll update the city

Know more For more information on Restaurant Week, visit www.stcharlesil.gov/restaurant-week. website in February as well. We will be running ads in local papers and people can clip that out and bring it in.  Marquardt: Is Restaurant Week usually a booming time for the city of St. Charles?  Tungare: We don’t have hard data on where people are coming from and how many come during the week, but we’ve heard from restaurants that it brings people as far as Wheaton and Glen Ellyn, or even out in Sugar Grove and Elgin. I personally live in Wheaton and I know a lot of people who come out for this.  Marquardt: How do the participating restaurants benefit from Restaurant Week? Tungare: Restaurants inform us that they are busier during ... Restaurant Week. Right now, we have 36 restaurants that have committed, which is the highest number ever.  Marquardt: What do you enjoy most about Restaurant Week?  Tungare: My personal favorite part is how it adds an element of vibrancy to our downtown. It is an event. It is short and sweet [when] the weather is dreary and the holidays are over, so it gives you something to look forward to. And the discount is great.

Giving your best ‘performance’ If you really think about it, most of your life is spent on some sort of “stage.” Giving a presentation at work or wildly explaining an embarrassing moment to friends – Shakespeare’s opinions of “all the world’s a stage” is pretty spot on. As a young whippersnapper, I spent a lot of time in extracurricular activities at Rosary High School in Aurora. Drama club and school musicals were just my cup of tea to indulge the part of my brain that longed to live in a fantasyland. Exhilarated, all of the practice and memorization lead up to the final performance, with the lights beating down on me and music swelling, my heart would leap in a youthful confidence that I was a part of something most excellent. Until one particular performance, I forgot my line. And of course it was a small solo in a song. I remember this moment vividly still to this day. Little Elizabeth having the time of her life on opening night, let her mind wander to the faces of her friends across the stage, and something made me laugh. I allowed myself to chuckle a bit, knowing I was almost up for my big moment and as our musical director cued me with her beautiful piano playing, I forgot my line. Everyone’s eyes were on me, waiting. And I stared, with what I am sure

THE MODERN DOMESTIC WOMAN Elizabeth Rago was a completely dumbfounded look on my face. My family and friends and classmates and multiple boys I had crushes on were witnessing me screw up big time under a bright spot light. I’d like to say that I was brave and chalked it up to opening night nerves, but I know I was upset with myself. I can laugh about that today, thinking how many times I’ve been “onstage” in my adult life, and how often I freeze, lost in what to say. The audience is a lot smaller now, but, oh, how I want to speak with clarity and promise and inspiration, especially with my children. But we don’t always know our lines. There’s no script or hours of practicing, in fact, life is like a regular improv, where it often feels like we are flying by the seat of our burning pants most of the time. What’s refreshing now is that I am getting better at stowing away memorable stories for use later. Getting in an argument with a friend on Facebook, debating with my son about how much screen time he has, or even in the words I write to you today, I find there is one

‘The Cookie Jar’ worth raiding TOM’S COOKBOOK LIBRARY Tom Witom Food writer and freelance cook Liz Franklin doesn’t single out Pistachio Sables as a terrific Valentine’s Day treat for that special someone in your life. But she might have done so with this recipe (below) or just about any one of the 90-plus others in her cookbook “The Cookie Jar” (Ryland Peters & Small). Franklin calls homemade cookies “the ultimate comfort food” – ideal as gifts no matter what the occasion. Readers will find chapters covering baking tips, cookies from around the world and the holiday season. Savory bites also join the mix and include Bacon Bites; Parmesan, Chilli and Marcona Almond Biscuits; and Olive Oil, Rosemary and Sea Salt Crackers. Pistachio Sables, found in the Something Special section, are crisp, crunchy and irresistible.

thing that separates the actress in me from the everyday me. Once I start speaking truly from the heart, taking time to breathe and reflect, my performance becomes much more graceful. I remember the conversations of the past and fine-tune my “presentation.” I am a terrible arguer, but I am a decent storyteller. Year after year, I began to put all my knowledge and the lines I had memorized to bed after each failed performance. My voice became so much clearer when I stopped trying to jam myself into a character that did not fit the original mold of how I was created to be. I reminisce about the young me on that stage, so full of tenacity and a boldness that never asked for forgiveness. After years of adult-ing, with failures and wins and bombed performances alike, as I stripped away the expectations of what I “should” be like according to the world, I found that whimsical girl still lived in my heart. Sure, she was a bit disheveled from years of neglect. But with a little love and tender care, that amusing girl surfaces more and more each day, but now with the wisdom of past failures and giddy wins. Think of a time when you felt that unapologetic boldness and really lived it out loud. I’m not talking a snarky you, rather, a vulnerable you. If that girl is a faded spark in your memory,

I promise you will not be disappointed and as the tarnish of bad moments and hurt feelings and disappointments begin to be cleaned off her face, she will begin to take center stage in your heart. In an effort to get back on the stage, I am excited to share that I have been called to audition for the final performance of “Listen To Your Mother” in Chicago. This live show celebrates mothering by giving a voice to the complex and intense and ugly and humorous moments that are motherhood. I’m nervous, but thankfully this performance requires no memorization – just wild storytelling.

Beat butter and icing/confectioners’ sugar together in large mixing bowl with salt and vanilla seeds until everything is well mixed. Add flour and almonds and work mixture together until it forms smooth dough.

Add coarsely chopped pistachios and knead gently but firmly, until they are incorporated evenly. Form mixture into 2 sausage-shaped logs, about 1 inch in diameter and wrap in plastic wrap, using plastic wrap to help roll dough evenly. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or so. Scatter finely chopped pistachios evenly over clean work surface. Unwrap dough and brush with the beaten egg white. Roll in pistachio mixture until they have a fine, even layer of pistachios around edge. Cut into slices about 3/8 inch thick and lay slices on prepared baking sheets, leaving little space for spreading between each one. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden and firm. Remove from oven and leave to cool on wire rack. Store in airtight container or cookie jar and eat within one week.

Sushi is a popular choice for a night out with friends or a romantic date night, but good sushi can also break the bank. If you’re looking for a way to indulge your sushi cravings while sticking to your monthly budget, surimi seafood is a great alternative to raw seafood that you can prepare right at home. Surimi is a fully cooked Japanese seafood ingredient, so it’s a great introduction for those new to sushi. Made from premium wild Alaskan pollock – a highly-sustainable whitefish – and real snow crab, surimi is a good source of protein and is more cost effective than cuts of raw seafood. Made with Crab Delights by blogger Nicole Harris of Wonky Wonderful, you can enjoy these Homemade California Roll Sushi Stacks with friends, family or a date.

Looking to the

FUTURE

Columnist worries what’s ahead for child with Down syndrome, finds reassurance from son By CHARLES MOSS The Washington Post

​M y 4-year-old son, Emmett, is adorable. I know, parents say that about their children all the time. But in Emmett’s case, he really is. Strangers attest to it at Costco and Publix and at our local children’s museum. Even Mayim Bialik, of “Blossom” and “The Big Bang Theory,” risked her anonymity at a Legoland in Atlanta to tell us how cute Emmett is. Of course, they are right. Emmett also has Down syndrome. Because of the extra copy of chromosome 21, he has a few physical characteristics that define his condition. He has an enlarged tongue, which, in turn, forces him to keep his mouth open in a resting position most of the time. A lot of the photos we have of Emmett capture him in this position, with his tongue sticking out ever so slightly. This, in combination with his flattened facial features, low muscle tone, small stature and large, upward-slanted eyes are what make people notice him. His outgoing, energetic and strong-willed personality, however, are what endear him to people. He smiles more than any person I’ve ever met. And these aren’t just your average small smiles – half-curled, closed lips. In fact, to call them smiles would be wrong because they are much more than that. They are, by all accounts, insanely huge, contagious bouts of laughter and screams of joy that are unable to be contained in just the shell of a smile. But it won’t always be like this. What people see right now – myself included – is an adorable little boy with Down syndrome. He knows no strangers, is affectionate (sometimes overly so), and his inability to enunciate properly is cute and

sometimes encouraged. But what happens when he grows up, when he becomes a man? What happens when he still has trouble speaking, when his looks no longer are considered adorable but are seen as ugly, because he may not look like everyone else? What happens when Emmett has trouble holding down a job or finishing school or living independently from us? What happens when he becomes an adult and he still has a personality equivalent to that of an 8- or 9-year-old? This is my fear. When he is an adult, Emmett no longer will be able to play the cute card. His world will be a much more difficult place. He will be looked down on, made fun of and bullied. At the same time, he will be coddled, felt sorry for and allowed to take shortcuts because of his looks and lower-than-average-intelligence. And he may allow his Down syndrome to define who he is.

Sometimes, as I watch Emmett struggle to communicate with us, trying to find a way to express what he’s saying in sign language or with other physical movements, or trying over and over again to pronounce the word he’s trying to say, but we’re left clueless, I’ve felt my eyes well up because we are just starting to experience what life might be like for him as he gets older. A few weeks ago, I picked Emmett’s older brother up from after-school care and I saw a girl, no older than 11 or 12, sitting by herself in the cafeteria, among throngs of other children playing in groups – joking, laughing and enjoying each other’s company. Though this girl seemed to be perfectly fine sitting by herself, I thought about Emmett and how one day, most likely soon, this might be him. I think about scenarios like this all the time. My wife, Vanessa, thinks I worry too much. She’s right. But whether we want to think about it or not, Emmett has a rough road ahead. Just like my other son Noah, I don’t know what to expect regarding Emmett’s future. But I know the more research I do, the more his future will begin to be defined. Because, subconsciously, I will start treating him accordingly, letting the books and articles I read dictate what his future will look like. Instead of treating him like his older brother, I will begin to treat him like someone who can’t do the things other kids can do. I will start to treat him as

someone with Down syndrome. And that scares me to death. A few weeks ago, I watched Emmett climb up the ladder of a bouncy house. At first, he struggled with how to tackle it because he was too small. He reached his hand out for my help, pleading, “Daddy, Daddy.” Initially, I reacted. I tried to climb into the bouncy house to help him, to push him up from his little behind, so the kids lined up behind him wouldn’t have to wait any longer. But then I noticed he was climbing the ladder on his own. He had discovered another way to climb it, his own way. And once he found his traction, boy, was he fast. I know Emmett always will have a little extra help in his life. I know there will be things that he just won’t be able to do because, well, he’s human. His Down syndrome will play into how he’s treated as an adult, what kinds of jobs he’ll have and his relationships. His quality of life will be different from his brother’s. But as I think about little Emmett climbing up that bouncy house ladder, it gives me comfort to know he won’t allow his Down syndrome to define who he is as a person and how he lives his life. He’ll find a way to get around it.

Stop smoking and save lots of money Dear Wallace: I read your letter from the mother who quit smoking for the benefit of her children. I also stopped smoking for my soon-to-be-born grandson. It was difficult for me to break the habit because I had been a tobacco slave for over 37 years. I overcame the urge to light up with the help of a hypnotist. I have now been smoke-free for one year. My habit cost me $50 a week. I now put this money into a bank account, and since I bank online I can see all my money that would have gone up in smoke. When I get the urge, I go online and look at my more than $2500! The money I save is for my grandson and any other grandchildren who come along. -- Happy Grandma, Rock Island, Illinois Happy Grandma: This is truly a win-win solution. You’ve reclaimed your own health at the same time that you’re contributing to your grandson’s future. Just being around longer as a loving grandma is your greatest gift to him. I’m sure your letter will inspire others. Dear Wallace: Please end this silly debate and educate your readers at the same time. I do a lot of weight-lifting. Let’s say that I could be addicted to weight training. I enjoy being in good health and also having girls go gaga over me when they see me at the seashore. My girlfriend also is involved in keeping her body strong, but lean. She is a long-distance runner and has participated in the Boston, New York and Los Angeles marathons. When we work out we sweat a lot. My girlfriend refreshes by drinking pure water. During and after lifting, I quench my thirst by drinking various kinds of sports drinks. She says that sports drinks do more harm than good. I disagree. What’s the story? – Atlas, Miami, Florida Atlas: Wow, I’m impressed just by your name. Your namesake in Greek mythology carried the world on his shoulders. Now back to your question. I

JUMBLE

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace defer to the expertise of Racquel Murphy, a registered dietician in New York City, who says, in essence, that you and your girlfriend are both half right. Someone who is active for less than two hours should rehydrate with pure water, because the body will absorb it better than other liquids. But after longer workouts, sports drinks are better because they contain carbohydrates. These provide extra energy and help the body absorb fluids at a faster rate. Dear Wallace: I’m 17 and work part-time during the school year. I worked a 40-hour week this past summer. I saved most of my money to help pay for college. My mom has the habit of “borrowing” money from me to support her smoking habit. I keep a log of all the money she has borrowed and never repaid even though she always promises to pay me back -- with interest. So far, it’s over $200. My dad keeps trying to get mom to stop smoking and is not happy that I’m helping her support her habit. I love my mother and find it hard to tell her no when she asks me for “a few bucks.” Should I tell her that I love her and that’s why I’m telling her no the next time she hits me up for money to buy cigarettes? I don’t want to lose her early from lung cancer. P.S.: I really don’t care if she repays me or not. She is a wonderful human being, my best friend and a terrific mother! – Kerry, Lake

Charles, La. Kerry: You will be doing your

mother a big favor if you stop giving her money to buy cigarettes. Cut out this column and tape it on the refrigerator. It might supply the spark to encourage her to end her tobacco habit. Let’s hope so! Dear Wallace: Recently, my best

friend and her boyfriend, both 16, were planning to drive to Disneyland early one Saturday morning and return home very late that same evening. I was thrilled when she invited my boyfriend and me to ride along. Well, my thrill didn’t last too long. When I asked my dad if I could go, he said no immediately. Of course I got upset, especially since he didn’t take time to think about it. All he said was, “Since when do you think you can just jump into a car and take off with a bunch of kids? You never have before, and what makes you think you can start now?” Dr. Wallace, that’s just it! I never get to do anything like this with my friends. I’m not permitted to go cruising, and when I’m on a date I must come directly home after we have a late snack or dinner. After all, I’m a 16-year-old young lady who feels she can’t be trusted. I get good grades and I have never done anything wrong to cause my parents not to trust me. I’d like your opinion, please. – Jenny, Bakersfield, Calif. Jenny: Your father might have been abrupt with his explanation, but I must agree with his decision. According to my map of California, Bakersfield is about 125 miles from Disneyland. That makes for a round trip of 250 miles, which translated to about five hours on the road. That’s a lot of driving for one day. Your father’s decision doesn’t indicate a lack of trust in you; he just doesn’t want to risk your safety to the judgment of a young, inexperienced driver who will be putting in a lot of time behind the wheel on an exhausting day. I think most parents would have made the decision your dad made. While I agree with his decision, I believe he could have given you a better reason for refusing your request. “Since when do you think … and what makes you think you can start now?” doesn’t cut it.

Mother of heroin addicts seeks help with depression Dear Abby: My DEAR ABBY daughter and son are heroin Jeanne addicts. After livPhillips ing through this hell for 11 years, I have reached my breaking point. My daughter, who just turned 18, is in jail. My heart is broken. Therapists, parent sessions, etc. haven’t helped. I’m 60 years old and should be retiring, but my retirement money was all spent on rehabs, etc. I won’t even go into the many items that were stolen from me. How do I move on? I’m so depressed I can’t get out of bed in the morning, and I cry all day. I don’t want to take meds for depression because drugs have caused all my misery. My marriage is falling apart, too. How do I carry on with this misery? – Miserable in Connecticut Dear Miserable: The way to carry on is to let it go. If you haven’t heard of Nar-Anon, you should check into it. It’s a support group for the family and friends of people who are addicted to narcotics, based on the principals of Al-Anon, which is for the loved ones of alcoholics. Help is as near as your computer. Visit nar-anon.org to find a group near you, and you will find that you are not as alone as you feel right now. Dear Abby: Five years ago, I discovered my wife had been cheating on me with an ex-boyfriend for eight years. We have two young children, so we resolved our differences and decided against divorce. Now she says she wants us to have another baby. I feel I cannot handle a pregnancy with her because of her infidelity. As a hands-on father, I would want to be part of the pregnancy and the complications/changes that come with it. How should I handle this and express to her why I cannot (at this point) have another child with her? – Hands-on Dad Dear Dad: Clearly you are not over your wife’s

infidelity, and frankly, I can’t blame you. The best way to get the message across to her would be during marriage counseling. Dear Abby: Several years ago I gifted one of my nephews, who was serving in the military at the time, with a .38-caliber revolver that had belonged to my uncle and reportedly had been used during World War I. I also gave his older brother a Colt .45 pistol from World War II. The nephew with the .38 revolver suffered from PTSD and died several years ago. The gun went to his father. My question is, shouldn’t I have been asked if I wanted the revolver returned? I didn’t give it to his father but to him. The father has made no attempt to return it to me. Abby, guns with histories are very personal to owners, and this one was doubly personal and an antique. What should I do? – Empty Holster in Texas Dear Empty Holster: Technically, once a gift is given it becomes the property of the person who receives it. Because your nephew is deceased – and I’m assuming his father is his next of kin – the gun became the father’s property. Since the gun has emotional significance to you because of its history, depending upon your relationship with the father, you can ask him to return it -- or offer to buy it back from him. However, there is no guarantee he will agree to your request.

Write Dear Abby at www.dearabby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.


ASK THE DOCTORS / ELIZABETH KO AND EVE GLAZIER At home, eliminate tripping hazards like uneven floors, loose rugs, stray power cords and clutter on floors. Be sure your home, both inside and out, is well lit. Install grab bars and non-skid mats in the bathroom. Keep a flashlight by your bed for nighttime emergencies. Staying fit and flexible makes a big difference. When you get out of a chair, try rising without using your hands. Practice standing on one foot – balance begets balance. Walking backward, which can be a surprising challenge, can help you become more spatially aware. Yoga and tai chi have both been shown to help with balance. Slow and graceful, these exercises not only help to maintain balance, they can improve it. Weight-bearing exercises to strengthen the arms, back and legs are effective as well. Many community centers offer a wide range of exercise classes specifically tailored to people who are older. It’s a great way to get fit and meet people with whom you can exercise in the future. And in case you have any doubt that now is a great time to start working on balance, an intriguing new study backs you up. When researchers analyzed 775 participants between the ages of 30 and 90 over the course of several years, they discovered that the decline in balance actually begins during your 50s.

Dear Doctor: I’m just about to turn 60, which – from what I’ve read – is when balance begins to become an issue. What can I do to stay steady on my feet? Dear Reader: Although good balance is important to all of us who face the world on two legs, it’s particularly vital to our well-being as we age. Unlike a child, who’s likely to bounce right back up and laugh, or an adult, who comes away with a bump or a bruise, a fall for a senior citizen is a serious health risk. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one-fourth of people over 65 have a fall each year. In 20 percent of those falls, the outcome is a serious injury, including head trauma. At least 2 million elderly people per year visit the emergency room due to injuries from a fall. Close to 300,000 of them wind up in the hospital with a hip fracture. At its most basic, balance is the ability to evenly distribute your weight and remain in control. We use our ability to balance when we stand, sit, walk, run and perform an infinite range of physical tasks. To achieve and maintain balance, our bodies use a complex set of systems that include muscle strength, sensory input like sight and touch, and a cluster of mechanisms in the inner ear that help with motion, equilibrium and spatial orientation. To prevent a fall, start by reducing your risk. If you wear glasses, make sure your prescription is up-to-date. If you’re on any medication, talk to your doctor about possible side effects that could affect balance.

Home on the

RANGE By KATHERINE SALANT Special to The Washington Post HENDERSON, Nev. – The “Contemporary Farmhouse” constructed in a subdivision outside Las Vegas in what once had been a desert, is a modest-sized dwelling that lives big and throws convention out the window. This very different house, with its unusually large outdoor living areas and a smaller footprint that covers only about half the lot, is not such a big leap for Las Vegas buyers, according to the builder, because they already have begun to move in this direction. But in the future, it could

become a model for how homes are built in other parts of the country. Buyers here increasingly are choosing smaller houses to open up more area outdoors that can be turned into “outdoor rooms.” To get them, they are willing to jettison bonus rooms and large game rooms that once were highly desirable but have fallen out of favor, said Klif Andrews, division president for Nevada-based Pardee Homes, which built the experimental dwelling for the International Builders Show.  The second story of the “Contemporary Farmhouse” in Henderson, Nev., recalls the farm“In essence, buyers are trading

Upgrades to make entertainment-friendly home By STEPHANIE BRICK Special to The Washington Post Birthdays, graduations, holidays, weddings, potlucks – you may be ready to celebrate good times with friends and family, but is your house ready? You may be adept at hosting successful dinner parties and family occasions, but your home may not be. Walls that normally embrace two or three family members can turn divisive and isolating with a larger group. Cozy hallways, with just a few more people added, can create a cumbersome circulation that is set on interrupting flow and causing traffic jams. Little annoyances with your home are proportionately exaggerated to unbearable as the number of people inside increases. The truth is that despite your best efforts and desires as a host, not every house is designed to gracefully bear large groups. Planning ahead as a host goes beyond vacuuming the floors and cleaning the kitchen: It revolves around the spatial planning and architecture of your space. So how do you design a house that easily accommodates groups and

parties – without its feeling cavernous when you are not entertaining? Here are three key elements to consider when planning a redesign with your architect or designer: • Create a smooth flow: Whether your dream home is a mansion or a house that could fit inside the closet of a mansion, there needs to be a smooth flow based on patterns of movement. This flow connects the core living areas of your house, which are typically the kitchen, living or family room, dining room (if there is one) and any outdoor room or exterior living space. It is important to design a visual connection between each of these rooms yet maintain architectural distinction. An easy way to achieve this is by expanding each doorway to be almost as wide as the room itself. This opens the floor plan but still maintains defined rooms. It also dramatically helps to scale a huge space, so it will not feel as cavernous when it is empty. There is a general assumption that the larger your house is, the more conducive it is to entertaining – and the smaller it is, the less conducive. This is not necessarily true: Larger homes with the ever-popular open concept can have terrible acoustics (sound

Sun en Op -3PM 1

travels much farther when there are no walls to cut it off or contain it), and what if you like entertaining but do not want to live in a big house? Your architect will analyze how much space you have, how much you want and how much you need – which are often three completely different numbers – and let your goal and budget drive spatial decisions along the way. • Create social zones: The next step is to define these different rooms as connected but distinct social zones. The kitchen is usually where guests gravitate – no matter how big your house is or how messy your kitchen is. But having equally appealing and inviting alternatives to the kitchen will reduce crowding and better allow people to mingle. To do this successfully, designers will create a visual connection between each of the core living areas and determine a focal point in each room. (But just one primary focal point per room or space can feel chaotic and out of balance.) In the kitchen, this may be an island or spectacular backsplash behind the stove. In the living room, a roaring fireplace may be the draw; it could even be a well-lit, statement

piece of art. Then they design seating areas around these focal points. With a visual connection between rooms to new points of interest and comfortable areas to relax, you are setting up zones for people to stretch into, mingle and explore. Conversation flows as easily as people will from one space to another. • Create flex spaces: The final element is adaptability: creating multipurpose spaces with multipurpose furnishings. The oldest trick in the book is the transformative “bedroom turned coat closet,” but this is a great idea that can be applied at many scales. What parts of your house can you reimagine when you have company? You can transform the purpose of the room (think a stylish Murphy bed in the office or library) or even smaller fixtures within it. For instance, I love designing in charming garden stools as guest room accent nightstands – keep them in place for smaller gatherings and overnight guests, but pull them out for extra seating in a pinch. No matter the reason for hosting, designing your home’s architecture and floor plan to fit your needs and lifestyle will make your house as welcoming to guests as you are.

• RANGE

Continued from page 35 space inside the house for space that’s outside,” he said. This paradigm shift began about five years ago with the end of the recession and the introduction of a new generation of affordable, three-panel, stacking glass doors that are 12 to 15 feet wide, Andrews said. These were a “game changer,” he said, compared with the standard 8-foot-wide sliders, because the glass area in an outside wall could be much bigger, the opening is much larger when the doors are pulled back and the tracks in the floor below the doors are so minimal that they are barely noticeable.  As the line between interior and exterior areas became less distinct, it was only a matter of time before homeowners began to spend more time out there, Andrews said. Indoor-outdoor relationships are a central theme in the Contemporary Farmhouse, but the first thing to catch a visitor’s eye is the exterior, an unusual marriage of rural and urban vernacular traditions that could only happen in a suburb of Las Vegas, a place where home builders have creatively reinterpreted Tuscan,

Tudor, Spanish, Italian, French Mediterranean and Pueblo styles for more than 20 years.  The simple single-gable shape of the second floor of the two-story Contemporary Farmhouse recalls the modest two-story, wood-frame houses that were built across rural and urban America from the 1890s to the 1930s, while the wide expanse of adobe-colored stone on the first floor is reminiscent of the simple, one-story houses that were built by working ranchers in the Southwest. And, surely a first for a production home builder, the lintels over the door and window openings, as well as the retaining walls for the landscaping, are made of Cor-Ten steel, a material more commonly found in bridges and highway overpasses because its protective, rust-colored coating resists real rust.  While this atypical mix suggests that something unusual is afoot, the design celebrates what is inside as much as what is outside.  The main indoor living area of the 2,100-square-foot house is L-shaped, with a living and dining area in each leg and the kitchen centrally located where the two legs meet.  Four of the five outside walls that overlook three private outdoor areas appear to be entirely made of glass, because the outsized stacking glass

doors in each wall are 12 feet wide and 8 feet high. Two sets of the stacking glass doors in the living and dining areas intersect. When each one is pulled all the way back, there is no corner post or anything else to indicate the presence of a wall – the space is completely open to the outside.  The outdoor areas are neither garden nor lawn; they are furnished outdoor rooms, similar in size to the adjacent indoor spaces, paved with the same floor tile and enclosed on the far side by the 5-foot-high, adobe-colored stone wall that surrounds the property. Two of the outdoor areas are covered, including one on the front of the house that the architect characterized as a “reverse-facing porch” because it faces the patio, not the street.  The walls of glass and the outdoor rooms will beguile most visitors, but the scale of the interior living areas is equally important in creating the overall effect – a space that feels both expansive and intimate at the same time. The large openings for the stacking glass doors create the impression that the living and dining areas are quite large; in fact, they are 12 by 15 feet, a modest size that lends itself to intimate conversation and does not require oversized furniture to look right.  Findings of a marketing survey of

millennial housing preferences helped inform the design by Hans Anderle for Bassenian Lagoni Architects of Newport Beach, Calif.  The survey focused on a subset of this group – the 46 million millennials between the ages of 24 and 35 who have been notably skittish about purchasing a home, compared with similarly aged members of previous generations. The survey was commissioned by TRI Pointe Group, the parent company of Pardee Homes, and carried out by Ketchum International. Zeroing in on an even smaller subset of those millennials who are homeowners or actively looking for a house, the survey produced some surprising findings. One of the biggest was the desire for outdoor living space. It was the No. 1 “must-have,” even among those who live in places where outdoor areas cannot be used year round, said Linda Mamet, Tripointe’s vice president for corporate marketing.  Other surveys of millennial homeowners and home buyers have produced similar numbers. The National Association of Home Builders’ top must-haves for this group included a patio, front porch and a deck. A survey by Better Homes and Gardens of millennial-aged female homeowners found that a majority of respondents

RIGHT: Master bathroom shower: The shower floor was tiled in a tribal pattern; a glass enclosure was added later. The bathroom floor appears to be conventional wood planks, but it is actually a tile look-alike that was used throughout the house and all but one of the outdoor living areas.

wanted a deck or patio in their next house. Delving more deeply into how millennial households actually use their outdoor spaces, the magazine found that more than half use it for family meals; 71 percent characterize it as an important area for their family to spend time together; and 70 percent use it for entertaining, a hugely important activity for this group.  Jill Waage, executive editor of Better Homes and Gardens, suggested that an important reason for the popularity of outdoor spaces with millennials is the ease of furnishing them now. Compared with 20 years ago, outdoor furniture is much more affordable and virtually maintenance-free. “You can leave it out there all winter and just hose it off,” she said.  Additional findings in Ketchum’s survey led the design team to tailor other features to the perceived tastes of millennials. The closets are small-

er and there is less kitchen storage because the data indicated that this group “wouldn’t own as much stuff,” Mamet said. There is no home office because the survey showed it ranking at the bottom of the millennials’ list of must-haves. As many millennials have shown a keen interest in customizing their living spaces themselves, some interior finishes were selected as examples of do-it-yourself projects, said Los Angeles-based Bobby Berk, who designed the interiors. The repurposed wood paneling in the master bedroom is Stikwood, a thin veneer with a sticky tape backing that can be easily installed by a homeowner. The woodlike ceiling beams in the living/kitchen area are actually Fypon, a high-density polyurethane product that a homeowner can easily install and stain, Berk said. The wood deck on one side of the living area is another example of a DIY project.  If survey data was an important

design input, equally important was the nature of the project. It was a “concept house,” Andrews said. Likening it to a concept car at the annual Detroit Auto Show, he said that the Contemporary Farmhouse was intended to test the waters “well outside of our comfort zone and gauge the response. When you build a concept house, you throw it out there and see what happens.”  How has the public responded? About 5,000 visitors toured the house during the International Builders Show in January, Andrews said. Millennials loved it, but so did every other home buyer demographic, including downsizing baby boomers and middle-aged Generation Xers. It turns out that the same things appealed to different groups for different reasons. For example, the first floor has a private suite with a kitchenette and a separate entrance at the front. The designers saw this as an accessory

dwelling unit that could be rented to help pay the mortgage, a natural fit for millennials, who routinely patronize “the sharing economy” that includes companies such as Uber and Airbnb. Downsizing baby boomers took one look and saw a first-floor master. Generation Xers with aging parents saw its potential as an in-law suite. And all the households with family members who regularly come to visit for months at a time would use it as a guest suite. Is the crossover appeal large enough for Pardee to build more houses like this one?  With some modifications, Pardee is hoping to offer ones very similar to the Contemporary Farmhouse next year. They are expected to sell for about $350,000, and if they do well, Pardee’s parent firm may begin to offer them in other markets.  And given the copycat nature of the home-building business, other builders may offer them, too.

Even though you may have signed your children up for summer camp almost a year One of the joys of my job is in advance and scheduled their working with interesting, smart, doctor’s appointments for the next accomplished people.

table. But if my daughters’ rooms are messy, which they often are, I can live with that. For some people, it might be that their bedrooms or home offices need to be straightened up each day, but it doesn’t matter if there are dirty dishes in the sink at night. I have been in enough houses to know that no one’s looks like a picture in a magazine. No one’s. So let yourself off the hook.  • Don’t try to attend every school event: Parents often feel guilty if they are unable to attend every event at their child’s school or if they can’t volunteer for something regularly. It is OK if you are not present for everything. Your child will survive and understand. If it’s too stressful for you to take off work or to take another child with you, you’re not going to enjoy it anyway. On the one hand, it’s wonderful that schools welcome parental involvement. On the other hand, it can be hard to not go to everything when you think every other parent is there. But no one will think less of you if you can’t be there all the time.  • Find at least two things you can delegate: Because it can be easier to do housework ourselves rather than ex-

plain it to someone else (and then worry that it’s not being done correctly), we just do it. But it is important that we delegate tasks when we can, even if the person doing them doesn’t do them the way we would. Have your kids fold laundry or load the dishwasher. Send your spouse to the grocery store every weekend, or hire someone to help you with household or administrative tasks. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. It’s a sign of leadership and efficiency. • Schedule time to do something for yourself: Make yourself a priority. This is not selfish. If you don’t schedule time to do the things you need and want to do, it will make you less – not more – productive and organized. Block off time on your calendar and commit to giving yourself at least an hour or two each week when you are doing something for yourself. It could be lunch with a friend, a workout, a haircut or a walk outside. Finding time to re-energize is a must. If you don’t give yourself a break, no one else will.

LARGE PUBLIC AUCTION

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2017 Starting at 9:00 am

Held inside at the Mendota Civic Center 1901 Tom Merwin Dr., Mendota IL. 61342

Take IL Rt. 52 (251) to Tom Merwin Dr., just North of the intersection of IL Rt. 34 and Rt. 52 in Mendota IL.

(2 auction rings running simultaneously will be necessary for part of the day)

RELEASE DATE: 2/12/2017

The winner of the 2016 Yeh Online World Bridge Cup was Lavazza, who played in Turin, Italy. The team partnerships were Emanuela Calandra-Norberto Bocchi, Benedicte Cronier-Agustin Madala and Sylvie Willard-Giorgio Duboin. Winning points sometimes seems random, but if you keep pressuring the opponents, things usually work out -- as in this deal played between Lavazza and the Chinese Contract Bridge Association. Madala (South) opened one heart in fourth seat with a hand that fails the Rule of 15: In fourth chair, open if your point-count plus spade length equals at least 15; otherwise, pass out the deal. Over West’s takeout double, Cronier (North) responded two notrump (the Truscott convention) to show a maximum pass with at least four-card heart support. South took a shot at the vulnerable game. West made an inadvisable lead: her trump. Now declarer drew trumps, knocked out the club ace and had 10 tricks: five hearts, two diamonds, two clubs and a diamond ruff in the dummy. Probably, if West had led the spade king, Madala would have made the contract, playing West for a singleton heart because of her takeout double. At the other table, over West’s double, South bid two clubs, which he intended as the Reverse Drury convention, showing a maximum pass with heart support -- he did not see West’s double! Over the double, two clubs was natural. South rebid two diamonds, and North invited game with three hearts, which South, expecting at most three hearts opposite, passed. Declarer also took 10 tricks, but Lavazza gained 10 international match points.
