ENERGY | WIND FARMS

Anti-wind effort swells Landowners say company seeking new contracts BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5525

A group of landowners has hired a public relations firm for its effort to oppose planned wind farms in Lee, Bureau and Whiteside counties. The Informed Farmers Coalition is targeting the Walnut Ridge and Green River wind farms, saying it wants to educate farmers before they consider new contracts with Minnesota-based Geronimo Energy.

Last week, the group issued a news release drafted by PR Etc., which has offices in Rockford and Madison, Wis. “The Informed Farmers Coalition has spent the last 3 years attempting to educate local citizens on the problems and challenges associated with wind turbine development,” coalition spokesman Kendall Guither said in the release. “However, turbine developers continue to mislead the public about problems that continue to exist with wind development.” In December, Geronimo bought the

Kathy Cecchetti, YWCA of the Sauk Valley board president, brought the theme to life with her performance of the song “Heroes”. She closed the event with some lighthearted theatrics. “This is me embracing my

SAVANNA – A West Carroll High School science teacher is charged with criminal sexual assault, accused of having a relationship with a student under the age of 18. C h e l s e y Wheeler, 24, was arrested Monday after turning herself in on a warrant, according to a news Chelsey Wheeler release from the Savanna Police Department. Her bond, set at $50,000, was paid the same day. West Carroll Superintendent Craig Mathers said in an interview Thursday that Wheeler no longer works for the district. The school board accepted her resignation Tuesday, Mathers said. Wheeler’s name isn’t listed on the high school’s online teacher directory, though her name still is on the list of West Carroll School District staff. Mathers said the investigation of Wheeler began March 24, and that his office had been cooperating with authorities. This was Wheeler’s second school year teaching at West Carroll, but her first as a full-time teacher. During the 2012-13 school year, she taught science for half of the day at Chadwick-Milledgeville High School and half the day at West Carroll High School. This is Wheeler’s first felony charge in Carroll County. Her first court appearance is scheduled for April 28.

No one can be entirely unbiased

Harn has defenders, critics

W

hen folks accuse the newspaper of having bias in its coverage, my response is simple: Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re absolutely right. How could we not? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re humans influenced by our life experiences. We make subjective judgments every day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; where we place stories, how we focus our stories, what we decide to cover. Our job is to remove as much bias as possible from our news coverage, but we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t completely eliminate it. On Tuesday, townships held their annual meetings, which are required by state law. Whiteside and Lee counties each have 22 townships. We wanted to attend one of the meetings. The question was, which one? Sterling was a good standby as the largest township in the two counties; we had covered its meeting last year. Dixon Township would have been another good choice; it was Supervisor Ed Frittsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first annual meeting at the helm. We decided to cover Rock Falls-based Coloma Township this year. Until recently, this township went years without turning in required financial reports to the state, with the Illinois comptroller threatening $13,000 in fines in response. As of late, the Coloma board has become irritated with Supervisor Debra Burkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance. Until recently, the public story from Coloma has been, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything is just fine.â&#x20AC;? Not so anymore. We believed Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting at Coloma would probably be newsworthy. And it was, with residents voting for an in-depth examination â&#x20AC;&#x201C; known as a forensic audit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; into the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finances.

Harnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hall of Shameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; In a recent column, I reported on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hall of Shameâ&#x20AC;? illustration that appeared on Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign Facebook page for a short time before the election. Receiving the dubious Hall of Shame honors were Brian VanVickle, the Rochelle police officer who later beat Harn in the GOP primary; a Forreston gun dealer who supported Harn in the last election but switched to VanVickle this time; and Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Attorney Mike Rock, who lost in his re-election bid. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure why Rock was included. Harn and Rock had no public disputes. When I called Rock, he said he had heard about the illustration after it had been taken down. Rock declined to speculate why Harn put his name in the illustration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My campaign was focused on educating the public,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really focused on the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race.â&#x20AC;? I reached out to Harn, but he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get back with me. The two men are in their positions for nearly 8 more months; because of the nature of their jobs, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably have to work with each other from time to time.

County treasurer calls cash payment â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;totally inappropriateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com    EXT

OREGON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn has yet to answer specifically what he did with money from the Oregon Park District. In both 2012 and 2013, the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department received $ 5 , 0 0 0 checks from the district as part of a police services agreement. Michael The park Harn district says the first check was deposited, but the county treasurer says he has no record of it. The second check was never cashed. In a brief email Thursday, Harn wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The [first] check was cashed and the money was at the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. ... The second check was at the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office.â&#x20AC;? Harn, who has come under question for his handling of the money, has provided no documentation on the first check. Sauk Valley Media submitted a public records request for that information Monday. Under state law, Harn has until early next week to respond or seek an extension. On March 28, Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn walked into the the Oregon Park District office and handed the staff $3,754.38 in cash. That was money he said was unspent from the park districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s payments. Today, he provided documents on how he arrived at that number, showing how he spent the money. The expenses included repairs and maintenance for a 2013 GMC Sierra pickup truck, the registration of a 2012 Dodge, auto parts, and a meal at a Rock Falls restaurant. Treasurer John Coffman said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where the sheriff got the $3,754 to pay the park district. Paying it in cash, he said, was â&#x20AC;&#x153;totally inappropriate.â&#x20AC;?

The treasurer handles most funds in the county. One in which he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t is the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s controversial, offbudget administrative tow fund, over which the sheriff had wide spending discretion until the County Board sharply limited it in February. In February, the board decided to have the treasurerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office handle the tow fund, but Harn has yet to turn it over.

Sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;in charge of his businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; On the County Board, Harn has his defenders. Member Lyle Hopkins of Polo said the sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x153;is in charge of his business and what he does.â&#x20AC;? He accused the newspaper of â&#x20AC;&#x153;twistingâ&#x20AC;? stories about Harn, although he declined to provide an example. County Board Chairman Kim Gouker said Thursday that he would get details about the $3,754 transaction, declining to comment further. As part of a 2012 agreement, the park district agreed to pay the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department $5,000

a year for â&#x20AC;&#x153;reactive patrol support,â&#x20AC;? training, administrative services, crime prevention John Coffman presentations and dispatch services. Erin Folk, the park districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director, said Thursday that the Kim Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gouker Department fulfilled the terms of the contract. On March 20, Sauk Valley Media filed a public records request with the Oregon Park District seeking records regarding its payments to the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department, which is how the newspaper found that the department never deposited the second $5,000 payment from last September. A little more than a week later, the sheriff informed the park district that he would end the agreement, saying the annual $5,000 wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessary for the depart-

ment to provide services to the district. The next day, he returned the $3,754.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The budget has to be accounted forâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; County Board member John Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien of Rochelle said Thursday that the County Board should never have given the sheriff so much power over the tow fund. He called it â&#x20AC;&#x153;totally irresponsibleâ&#x20AC;? for the sheriff to pay a large amount of money in cash. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree with Mr. Hopkins that the sheriff has complete control. The budget has to be accounted for,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said. He also expressed concern that Harn has yet to turn over the tow fund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What authority does the County Board have to force the sheriff to obey the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wishes?â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What right does the board have to force the issue? A lawsuit? Or calling the attorney generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office?â&#x20AC;? The board, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said, would need to answer those questions.

OBITUARIES Gladys V. Hansen MUNCIE, Ind. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Gladys V. Hansen, 100, of Muncie, passed away Friday evening, April 4, 2014, at CrownPointe of Anderson in Anderson, Ind. She was born Nov. 5, 1913, in Sterling, the daughter of Onno and Henrietta A. (Lauts) Otten. Gladys attended schools in the Sterling area. She married James Walter Hansen Jr. on Feb. 21, 1939, in Sterling. She worked as a secretary for Boeing Aircraft in Wichita, Kan., and Seattle. Gladys was the oldest living member of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Muncie. She volunteered for many years at St. Mary School and Ball Memorial Hospital. Gladys enjoyed playing golf at the Elks, where she was a member. She attended â&#x20AC;&#x153;55 Alive,â&#x20AC;? and was an avid card player and greeting card maker. She loved interior decorating, which she practiced almost daily until her death.

Messages left for Geronimo executives were not returned CONTINUED FROM A1

Mainstream got approval from Lee and Whiteside counties for turbines, while Bureau Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s zoning board rejected the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal. Walnut Ridge would be entirely in Bureau County. In a brochure, the coalition says Geronimo is reaching out to landowners to sign new contracts. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say where Geronimo is making such efforts. Perhaps it is in Bureau County, where its rejected proposal called for 19 turbines. Kris Donarski, Bureau Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s zoning officer, couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be reached for comment this week. A woman answering the phone in the zoning

office said Donarski took a few days off, and no one else in the county could answer questions about the status of the two wind farms. Messages left for Geronimo executives were not returned. In Whiteside County, where nine turbines are planned for Green River, Stuart Richter, the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s zoning administrator, said he was unaware of any efforts to sign new contracts. In summer 2012, the Whiteside County Board approved the Green River proposal, giving the wind farm owner 3 years to get building permits, which are contingent on the completion of a number of requirements, including the development of a decommissioning plan. That means the company has until mid-2015 to get

the project going. Geronimo, the brochure said, has yet to submit decommissioning plans for Green River or Walnut Ridge. Such plans would guide the taking down of abandoned turbines. With the expiration of a tax break for wind energy production, the chance that both Green River and Walnut Ridge will be abandoned or underused increases, according to the brochure. Geronimo has said it hopes to start construction on Green River and Walnut Ridge by late this year or next. The plan for 53 turbines for Green River in Lee County is mired in litigation. Residents in the neighborhood argue that the project would hurt their quality of life, creating noise and shadow flicker.

IKEA buying Illinois wind-energy project CFO: Decision not driven by public relations CHAMPAIGN (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The U.S. subsidiary of Swedish furniture retailer IKEA announced Thursday that it is buying a long-planned wind-energy project in eastern Illinois as part of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initiative to offset its energy use with renewable energy generation. And IKEA insists the project, which has not yet been built, is more than public relations. The company believes that, long term, wind energy will help the

companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bottom line, Chief Financial Officer Rob Olson said. But right now, wind power is a struggling business. Cheap natural gas and the end of a federal tax break for wind-power producers have left wind generation unprofitable. Olson said in an interview Wednesday that Hoopeston Wind is the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first largescale wind project in the United States. By the time the 98-megawatt wind farm is built and running â&#x20AC;&#x201C; planned for 2015 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it will be capable of generating power equivalent to 165 percent of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s U.S. electricity needs. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the retailerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previously announced push to offset all of its global

power use with energy generated from renewable resources by 2020. IKEA is buying the project, which is planned for farm land about 50 miles northeast of Champaign, from Virginiabased Apex Clean Energy. That company will operate the wind farm, which will employ about five people, according to Apexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. Olson insists the company isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t building a wind farm just for public relations reasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of that calculation isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just the immediate return on investment,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that the company had calculated costs and potential benefits out over 20 years.

THE CARTOONISTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S VOICE

Dave Granlund, GateHouse News Service

Making sure theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing fair and square What we think The Illinois House, urged on by the Illinois Press Association, has approved a resolution to conduct hearings into the Illinois High School Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities. We see absolutely no problem with that.

T

he Illinois High School Association, which sanctions a variety of high school sporting and extracurricular competitions, aims to make sure that its more than 780 member high schools play fair and square. The Illinois House of Representatives voted Monday to conduct hearings into the IHSAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operations to make sure it is playing fair and square. We see absolutely no problem with that. Some of our area state representatives did, however. On the 55-51 vote to approve the House hearings, state Reps. Tom Demmer, R-Dixon; Don Moffitt, R-Gilson; and Brian Stewart, R-Freeport, voted against the resolution. State Rep. Mike Smiddy, D-Port Byron, voted in favor of it. Perhaps the regional party-line vote had something to do with the fact that a Democrat, state Rep. Linda Chapa LaVia, of Aurora, sponsored the measure, and that she initially had proposed that the state look into taking over the duties of the IHSA, which is a private organization. Chapa LaVia said she no longer wants the state to assume those vast responsibilities. However, she does want members of the House Committee on Elementary and Secondary Education to quiz the IHSA about how it conducts its business. After Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote, that hearing will happen. Proposed lines of questioning would delve into the administration and funding of high school sports; the safety of high school athletes; the IHSAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s systems and protocols; and the costs and income associated with the administration of high school sports. The IHSA is supervised by a board made up of high school principals. Their executive director, Marty Hickman, said in a

statement that the IHSA would cooperate. Hickman initially appeared perturbed by the inquiring minds of House members. In a March 14 statement, he chided Chapa LaVia, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have no idea what concerns the representative might have, because she has not contacted the association regarding this resolution.â&#x20AC;? Later, he said that the IHSA had been a â&#x20AC;&#x153;model of transparencyâ&#x20AC;? and that the decision to conduct hearings put the organization in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;negative light.â&#x20AC;? Hickman issued a further statement: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We felt unfairly targeted with the way this all came about. But whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done is done. The hearings are going to happen, so our mindset now is, the sooner, the better. We want to show the representatives how we operate and clear up any misconceptions they may have.â&#x20AC;? The Illinois Press Association, of which Sauk Valley Media is a member, strongly supported the resolution. Newspaper folks in Illinois still ruefully recall the IHSAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unsuccessful attempt in 2008 to restrict newspaper photographers from shooting certain postseason IHSA sports events unless their newspapers pledged not to allow secondary sales of the photos. The IHSA, when sued by the IPA, eventually backed down. Chapa LaVia raised at least half a dozen other issues surrounding the IHSAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities during Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s House debate. We agree with Chapa LaVia that there is a need to â&#x20AC;&#x153;throw some transparency and lightâ&#x20AC;? on the IHSA. We urge Hickman to welcome the inquiry, cooperate fully, and use this opportunity to settle any lingering doubts that people may have about the association. If the IHSA is playing fair and square, this will be its chance to prove it.

Shed light on contract details College-faculty pact shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be kept secret before approval Northwest Herald Editorial Board Crystal Lake

This sentence in Northwest Herald reporter Jeff Engelhardtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story this week regarding McHenry County College and full-time faculty coming to a contract agreement is all too familiar: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Details of the deal will not be made available until both the McHenry County College Faculty Association and the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of trustees approve the contract, said college spokeswoman Christina Haggerty.â&#x20AC;? Why is it acceptable to keep the public in the dark about how its money is being spent until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too late? Why do public bodies believe it is acceptable to spend large sums of taxpayer dollars without telling the public how those dollars are being allocated?

Secrecy and your government At issue: Employment contracts between local governments and public employee unions MCC isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only guilty party. This year, Crystal Lake-based School District 155 and McHenry-based School District 156 also approved new contracts with teachers without the public being allowed to see the details before a final vote was taken. State Rep. Jeanne Ives, R-Wheaton, wants more transparency. So do local state Reps. David McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills; Mike Tryon, R-Crystal Lake; and Barb Wheeler, R-Crystal Lake. Ives introduced House Bill 4268, which would require all newly negoti-

ated contracts between unions and public-sector employers (school districts, cities, counties, the state, etc.) to be posted for at least 14 days on the public bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. Further, after at least 14 days, the public entity would be required to convene an open meeting and receive public comments before a vote is taken. IVES SAID THE BILL would help elected board members, public employees and the public know better the contents of proposed contracts and what they would cost taxpayers. McSweeney, Tryon and Wheeler are co-sponsors of the bill. Unfortunately, the legislation has failed to get out of Jack Franksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; State Government Administration Committee. At a recent hearing, Franks, D-Marengo, told Ives he liked the bill but wanted to broaden its scope to all contracts. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing stopping public bodies from releasing contract

details before a public vote. These units of government choose to hide the information from the public. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfortunate that we need legislation demanding public bodies do the right thing instead of public bodies doing the right thing on their own. We applaud Ives for her commitment to transparency, and we are pleased to see local lawmakers get on board. This bill deserves to get out of committee and onto the floor for debate and passage.

Facets of tea ceremony unveiled Professor to demonstrate Japanese tradition BY ANDREA MILLS amills@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 575

ROCKFORD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Just before Anderson Japanese Gardens officially opens for the season May 1, visitors have a special treat in store. A hanami chakai, or traditional Japanese Flower Viewing Tea Ceremony, will be demonstrated April 26 at the Sukiyastyle guest house. The ceremony begins with the participants gathering at the visitor center. There, the stage will be set with a cup of genmaicha (roasted rice-flavored tea). In the background, guests will be able to view the gardens themselves. After an introduction, the visitors will make their way to the guest house. The ceremony host, Kimiko Gunji, then will show the process of the tea ceremony, centering around a cup of green tea and a Japanese sweet treat. The host is a professor at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. Three tea ceremony times have been established. Each of them has room for just 15 people, so early reservations are essential. After the demonstration, visitors are free to look over the

Subscription sample boxes shake up beauty routines CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beauty product fanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream: a monthly box sent to the door filled with samples of lip glosses, face creams, hair treatments and nail polishes. The trend started a few years ago with companies such as Birch Box charging between $10 and $15 a month for subscriptions. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently taken off with dozens of options. There are highend boxes, fragrance-only boxes, even vegan boxes. Here are five things to know about beauty boxes: 1. Beauty experts consider Birch Box a pioneer. Birch Box started about 3½ years ago when two Harvard Business

School classmates had the idea to send consumers samples every month. Hayley Barna and Katia Beauchamp have grown that idea into a business that lets customers buy thousands of full-size products online â&#x20AC;&#x201C; products those customers first tried in the sample size from their subscription. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also just announced a storefront in New York. The service is available in France, the United Kingdom and Spain, as well. Beauchamp said Birch Box wants to change the way consumers discover and buy beauty products. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is a huge opportunity. We could create something

thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really monumental,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Beauchamp said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We use the idea that everyone would love to have a beauty editor best friend who cuts through the clutter and knows you.â&#x20AC;? 2. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still an emerging business model. That has its positives and negatives. Allure magazine editor-in-chief Linda Wells says the biggest challenge for beauty-box companies is getting samples to fill the boxes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The big, major companies arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t participating in a major way,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smaller companies and companies that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a strong presence in department stores.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a way for con-

sumers to get these products without going through the hunting and trickery you have to go through when you go to department stores,â&#x20AC;? Wells said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;a pain-free, no-downside way to really try things.â&#x20AC;?

McIntyre calls it Society. Wells said they

include a booklet with details about products, trends and how-to-use information. Birch Box offers a similar product card every month. Some beauty box companies have subscribers take a survey asking about their skin and hair types and makeup preferences. 5. Trade samples on online marketplaces. Sometimes you do end up with a sample that you just know wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work for you. McIntyre suggests your next step be to visit websites like edivv.com. That website describes itself as a place where users can â&#x20AC;&#x153;negotiate, barter and tradeâ&#x20AC;? beauty sample products.

Tulips help young scientists track seasonal change BY MARY BETH BRECKENRIDGE MCT News Service

AKRON, Ohio â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When Renata Fossen Brown checks on the progress of a patch of tulips at Cleveland Botanical Garden, schoolchildren across the Northern Hemisphere are watching. Brown is a participant in Journey Northâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tulip test garden project, an online educational effort that lets kids track springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrival across the hemisphere and teaches them about seasonal changes, climate and geography. The concept is simple: Volunteers scattered across the United States and a few countries in Eurasia plant the same type of tulip bulbs, and then monitor and report on the plantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; growth. Tulips were chosen because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re one of the few plants that can be

grown just about everywhere in North America. The volunteersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dispatches are tracked on a map on the Journey North website, so children can watch the seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progression throughout the country and beyond. Many of the gardens are at schools, but other institutions and individuals participate, too. This is the first year Cleveland Botanical Garden has been part of the project. Brown, the gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vice president of education, planted tulips last fall at its Hershey Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garden and at three urban farms tended by the teenage participants in its Green Corps program. Staff members monitored the tulipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; early progress, Brown said, because the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden was closed for the season until late March

and the Green Corps program doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start till May. Nevertheless, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping to get the gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young visitors engaged in the project. She might urge the children to compare the progress of bulbs planted one year to bulbs planted the next, she said, or perhaps involve the kids in tracking data over a long period of years as a way of seeing climate trends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is real science. This is authentic,â&#x20AC;? said Brown, the botanical gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vice president of education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is engaging, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worthwhile.â&#x20AC;? The tulip watch is just one of the citizen science

projects overseen by Journey North ( www.learner. org/jnorth ), a program that helps children study wildlife migration and seasonal change. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operated by Annenberg Learner, a division of the Annenberg Foundation. Journey North started in 1994, and the tulip test gardens were one of its first projects, said Mary Hosier, a Cleveland Heights, Ohio, resident and a writer for the program. She said the tulip project reaches more than 1 million students annually. The number of gardens varies each year, but about 450 have been planted this year, she said.

State of marriage mirrors disposable society Dear Abby: My wife and I were discussing our sons-in-law, and young men in their 20s and 30s in general. We were wondering where the attitude of â&#x20AC;&#x153;any money I earn is mineâ&#x20AC;? in a marriage or live-in situation got started. For the first few years of my daughter and her husband â&#x20AC;&#x153;Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? marriage, Joe resented giving her any of the money he earned. My other daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband thinks nothing of spending money on himself and his friends without consulting her. We have seen this attitude reflected in their friends, as well. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to discuss with each other how each is spending their â&#x20AC;&#x153;jointâ&#x20AC;? income.

tion is different: The law assumes that the man and wife are one unit. This is the mindset you adopted when you and your wife were married. There is a tendency among young couples, not only because of the high divorce rate, but also what they have been exposed to in the media from the time they were born, to view marriage as something that might not last. There is also a sense of entitlement among many â&#x20AC;&#x201C; NOT ALL â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that makes them centered on themselves.

WASHINGTON

$4 billion: Bogus tax refunds a growing problem WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; An Internet connection and a bunch of stolen identities are all it takes for crooks to collect billions of dollars in bogus federal tax refunds. And the scam is proving too pervasive to stop. A government report in November said the IRS issued $4 billion in

fraudulent tax refunds over the previous year to criminals who were using other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal information. Attorney General Eric Holder said this week that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;scale, scope and execution of these fraud schemesâ&#x20AC;? has grown substantially, and the Justice Department in

the past year has charged 880 people. Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involved? In a video message released ahead of the April 15 tax filing deadline, Holder said the scams â&#x20AC;&#x153;are carried out by a variety of actors, from greedy tax return preparers to identity brokers who profit from the sale of per-

sonal information to gangs and drug rings looking for easy access to cash.â&#x20AC;? Even Holder isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t immune. Two men pleaded guilty in Georgia last year to trying to get a tax refund by using his name, Social Security number and date of birth on tax forms.

EASTER WORSHIP SERVICES

The IRS says it opened nearly 1,500 criminal investigations related to identity theft in fiscal year 2013, a 66 percent increase over the previous year, and has strengthened filters that help detect where the scams are coming from. It says it stops far more fraudulent refunds than it

When people smack their food What kind of music makes your skin crawl? Yodeling Hangouts: The golf course, weight room, anywhere with friends. I

like to be social. Key to surviving high school: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let anything get you. Just brush it off. Useless knowledge: Algebra Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the dictionary next to: Weird. Or OCD. I have some weird OCD habits. Secret twin: Everyone says I look like Snoopy, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it.

February Student of the Month: Erin Ansusinha

E

rin Ansusinha, 18, of Sterling, is one of Sterling High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s February Students of the Month. Her parents are Mardi and Larry Ybarra, and her siblings are Emily Ansusinha, 23, of Wake Forest, N.C., Allyson Ansusinha, 21, of Chicago, and Alec Ansusinha, 19, of Columbus, Ohio. Favorite class: Publications, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the one class during my day that I get to really use my creativity in designing our schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yearbook and newspapers. Top teacher: Jessica Smith, AP Statistics. She really expresses concern for her students and the grades they earn. AP Stats is sometimes difficult, but she helps us find ways to understand and encourages us more than any of my other teachers to come and ask for help. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever been more willing to do homework than I am for this class. I hope all my college professors get me to be this enthusiastic about schoolwork. Extracurriculars: I am the president of Student Council, a member of National Honor Soci-

ety, and an Illinois State Scholar. After graduation: I plan to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, or Augustana College in Rock Island. Paycheck: I work at FunJump! My mom owns it. I do like working there, because since my mom is my boss, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flexible with when I can and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, and my coworkers are the absolute best. Best friends: Aida Juarez and Charli Wike Favorite singer or musical group: I have too many favorites to choose just one! Favorite actor: Morgan Freeman Favorite TV shows: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gossip Girlâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Greyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anatomyâ&#x20AC;? Hobbies: Soccer, tennis, writing, piano Favorite game or outdoor activity: Tennis Favorite food: Chili Biggest fear: Getting in a car crash Least favorite class: Government, because Mr. Preston picks on me every single day.

What makes your blood boil? When people chew loud or breathe loud when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re chewing. What kind of music makes your skin crawl? Mexican music Favorite hangouts? My house, any food places, or any of my friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s houses. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just places to chill and relax. High school survival guide: Stay chill about everything, and try not to panic about every little thing, because everything passes and life goes on. Useless knowledge: Everything in geometry Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the dictionary next to: Outgoing, maybe? Because I just like being nice and socializing with anybody. Dream job: If I were given the smarts and skills just for that day to do it, brain surgeon. Trading places: With Kendall Jenner, because she gets to go to so many cool places. I would definitely go on a tropical vacation with all of my friends. Trading spaces: Phuket, Thailand. It is the prettiest place in the world! The water is so blue and

Why We Should Pray It is possible to live a virtuous life by simply adhering to the universal rules of morality which every moral philosophy and religion dictates: Be honest, respect otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property, help each other when they are in need, etc. But it is not possible to live a godly life without prayer, for without prayer we lack that openness to the experience of God which is required if we are to be true Christians. Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grace is abundant, but it cannot be given without being asked for; grace must be freely asked for and freely given. This can only happen through sincere and heartfelt prayer. Over and over again we see throughout the Bible that Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chosen ones come to him on bent knees with prayer and supplication.The godly call upon God in their time of need whereas the godless rely upon their own strength. Prayer, at bottom, is nothing more than a spirit of openness to what God is telling us, but it is also a conversation, with us asking God for help, and thanking Him for his many gifts to us. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to showthem that they should always pray and not give up.â&#x20AC;?

Robotic milking ups profits How dairymen handle cows, time, is changing MENDON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The cows are lined up for milking at the Shupe Dairy Farm north of Mendon. Rod Shupe keeps watch as the cows move through one by one, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no longer doing the milking. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left up to a robotic system, in place on the farm since September, that handles the job around the clock. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a high-tech system for a farmer who admits heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a high-tech guy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty good at what I do, but this thing is better than me,â&#x20AC;? Shupe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to admit that, but with this technology, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any better when it comes to milking technique.â&#x20AC;? The promise of feed pellets and the desire to be milked draws the cows to the milking area. A gate shuts behind the cow, then the system scans her electronic identification tag, determining whether sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready to be milked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Say a cow got milked at 6 and comes back 4 hours later. Depending on production, the computer robot knows, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I kick you out because you have to wait an hour or 2 more to have more milkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I keep you because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re milking so well,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Shupe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes the decision, the robot. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unbelievable what it can do.â&#x20AC;? The cow eats a ration of feed pellets as the robotic arm attaches to her udder and does the milking while tracking her milk production and feed intake. The milk

Roger Shupe checks the robotic milking system he and his brother, Rod, use on their dairy farm near Mendon. The system operates around the clock, milking and feeding the herd, along with tracking information about each individual cow. then travels through an insulated pipeline into the farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storage tank, which is emptied every other day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really changes how the dairyman manages his cows,â&#x20AC;? said Curt Heimer with Kaeb Equipment, which installed the Lely Astronaut robotic system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really gives him a different lifestyle. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be there at 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some flexibility in how he manages his cows.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not doing is spending what would have been 3 hours a day, twice a day, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s milking time,â&#x20AC;? Shupe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to cut hay, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to stop and come back and do 3 hours and go back. You can get done earlier doing everything else. It frees up labor time.â&#x20AC;? He said the system also boosts milk production.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to have a good feed program, a good nutritionist, to make it all like a domino. One leads to another,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The profitability goes up. The savings of labor goes up.â&#x20AC;?

Health-driven decision A nearly fatal health scare prompted the Shupes to look at making changes in the dairy operation. Rod and his brother, Roger, split the farming work. Roger handles the crop side â&#x20AC;&#x201C; raising corn, soybeans, hay and silage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while Rod oversees the dairy. Rod hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t missed a milking in 25 years until a brain infection in July 2011 put him in the hospital for 50 days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most people said you were supposed to die. I survived,â&#x20AC;? he said. Rod spent the next

9 months recuperating from the infection, which initially left him unable to walk, as well as skin grafts, double hernia surgery and a knee replacement. Back at work on the farm, Rod developed an infection in his knee that led to 4 more months of recuperation and four knee surgeries in 13 months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My brother had to literally on the fly figure out what to do, and that is, in a nutshell, why my brother decided to explore the option,â&#x20AC;? Roger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 59 soon. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 60. If we want to keep going for another decade, we thought it probably might be a good idea to do it.â&#x20AC;? Work on the new system began in April. Hesse Builders did the construction work, then Kaeb installed the system in a new building between the feed barn and the former milking barn.

THE MASTERS

Pressure less for Scott now Defending champ only one shot back BY DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

Alex T. Paschal/apaschal@saukvalley.com

ABOVE: Dixon’s John Brechon returns a shot during his No. 1 singles match against Sterling’s Jack Nitz on Thursday at the Emma Hubbs Tennis Courts in Dixon. Brechon lost 6-2, 6-3, but the Dukes won the meet 3-2. BELOW: Jack Nitz squares up a shot against John Brechon during Thursday’s match.

Momentum stabilized

AUGUSTA, Ga. – No nerves. No worries. Adam Scott never knew the opening round at Augusta National could be so enjoyable. With his green jacket upstairs in the locker room for Masters champions, Scott made only one bad swing that cost him two shots in a round of 3-under 69. It was the lowest opening score by a defending champion in 13 years, and it left Scott one shot behind leader Bill Haas on an otherwise demanding day. “It was really how you hope to come out and play at any major, and especially the Masters,” Scott said. “And there’s no doubt winning the Masters last year had me a little more comfortable on the first tee than I’ve ever been in the past, because I didn’t have the legs shaking and nerves jangling for six or seven holes like usual.” PRESSURE CONTINUED ON B6

Only straight-set matches when rivals meet BY TY REYNOLDS treynolds@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 554

DIXON – Momentum can often be a fickle friend in sports. It can shift as easily as the wind blows, and often change directions again just as quickly. But old mo was pretty tried and true Thursday afternoon at the Emma Hubbs Tennis Courts in Dixon’s Page Park. The Dixon Dukes downed the Sterling Golden Warriors 3-2 in a NIB-12 dual tennis meet, with all five victories for both teams coming in straight sets. “You always want to win that first set,” Dixon junior Justin Wilson said, “and hope that good start leads to a good ending. It doesn’t always happen that way, but it was a good feeling today … and it’s even nicer when it comes against Sterling.” Wilson and partner Ian South were the first winners, downing Sterling’s Gage Bright and Hunter Wolfe 6-2, 6-2 at No. 2

Dixon winners: Sam Bratt (No. 2 singles), Ian South & Justin Wilson (No. 2 doubles), Andy Clark & Brandon Helfrich (No. 3 doubles) Sterling winners: Jack Nitz (No. 1 singles), Dustin Stoudt & Zak Khan (No. 1 doubles) Up next: Mendota at Sterling, 4:30 p.m. Monday; Dixon at Ottawa, 4:30 p.m. Tuesday doubles. The two singles matches ended next, with Sterling’s Jack Nitz beating Dixon’s John Brechon 6-2, 6-3; Dixon regained the team lead a few minutes later when Sam Bratt defeated Sterling’s Lane Martells 6-3, 6-3. The No. 1 singles match featured strong groundstrokes by Nitz, as well as the sophomore’s ability to fend off the aggressive serving of Dixon senior Brechon. MOMENTUM CONTINUED ON B5

Strong start, stronger finish Rockets put away Cardinals for first win of season BY PATRICK PETROSKY ppetrosky@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085 ext. 5554

ROCK FALLS – The Rock Falls Rockets started and finished strong in a 13-8 victory over Big Northern West foe Stillman Valley on Thursday. Rock Falls (1-6) started off hot, both offensively and defensively. A 1-2-3 top half of the first set up a six-run bottom half, giving the Rockets their best start of the year. Jacob Mammosser highlighted the two-out rally by bouncing a standing double off of the left-field fence to drive in senior Austin Donoho from first. “Fast balls right down the middle, pretty much, it wasn’t anything other than what I always do. I wish I had more than warning-track power, though,” Mammosser said. “I kept hitting the fence. I said I was going to hit one out today, but

Sellout streak stays alive C

HICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ben Smith knows what it means to play in an empty building. OK, so â&#x20AC;&#x153;emptyâ&#x20AC;? might be a bit of an overstatement. But the Blackhawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 25-year-old winger spent parts of three seasons in hockeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minor leagues, and he knows what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to play a game in a building that features all of the energy of a sleeping dog. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think a lot of guys in this room will attest to it,â&#x20AC;? Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But playing in Peoria on a Wednesday night or Sunday afternoon, â&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? Smith smiled and shook his head as his voice trailed off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You compare that to playing here at the United Center, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge difference.â&#x20AC;? Mega huge. Fans judge players by all sorts of statistics, from goals and assists to blocked shots and penalty minutes. The greatest statistics are committed to memory â&#x20AC;&#x201C; remember Wayne Gretzkyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 92-goal season? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and passed down to generations of hockey fans. It turns out that players can judge fans by statistics, as well. And as the Hawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sellout streak reached 267

that the Hawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 267game sellout streak isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t TOMMUSICK that special.

As it stands today, the Hawks would visit Colorado for Games 1 and 2 to open the playoffs. Sometimes, though, even a road game can feel like a home game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our fans are worldwide,â&#x20AC;?

At some point, the sellout streak is bound to come to an end. Then again, maybe it will go on for infinity intermissions. If Hawks fans can keep showing up despite an up-anddown economy, and one of the snowiest winters in the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history, then what exactly could cause the streak to snap? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope not,â&#x20AC;? Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way the game is growing here, and how well this team has done over the last few years, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good recipe for success. We want to keep that going. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just like we want to keep winning on the ice, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure the fans want to keep that streak alive and show their support.

NFL | NFC NORTH

Bears most active in NFC North Packers havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made many waves in free agent market BY ARTHUR ARKUSH 3HAW-EDIA

Few NFL teams â&#x20AC;&#x201C; much less any NFC North clubs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; attacked this free agency period as aggressively as the Bears. The Packers, unsurprisingly, have been the quietest team in the NFC North with regard to team-building. Unlike Bears GM Phil Emery, Ted Thompson doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t view voluminous free-agent signings as a viable method of roster construction. Instead, he assigns values to his own free agents, carefully choosing who to reward and who to let go, knowing that the players he opts not to re-sign â&#x20AC;&#x201C; James Jones and Evan Dietrich-Smith, to name a couple â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will net him more ammunition in next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft in compensatory picks. If Thompson does need to add veterans from outside the building, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more inclined to target street free agents, who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count in the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compensatory pick formula, as he did last month with the splash-signing of former Bears DE Julius Peppers, and the less-hyped acquisition of Letroy Guion. Bears fans are familiar with Peppers, who had a terrific 4-year run in Chicago, even with last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regression. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be used much differently in Green Bay, where the Packers envision the 34-year old former All Pro as a hybrid player, whose flexibility and unpredictability they hope will keep defenses guessing. Be prepared to see Peppers not only lined up all across the Green Bay defensive front, but also looming near the line of scrimmage in a

The Packersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; biggest move in free agency was adding veteran defensive lineman Julius Peppers, who spent the last 4 years with the Bears. two-point stance, making it difficult to predict which way heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headed. His size and athleticism can still lead to major headaches for the Bears and other Packersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opponents. Guion, a steady rotational tackle in Minnesota in the past four seasons, gives the Packers a younger option than free agents Ryan Pickett and Johnny Jolly. Just 26, he can line up in more than one spot, and adds some quickness to the Packersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; front. It still needs help via the draft, but the Packers defense now has a pair of veterans who can contribute readily while they wait for younger players to develop. The Packers reinforced their ascending ground game, re-signing James Starks and John Kuhn, both key players in their Week 17 playoff clincher at Soldier Field. Green Bay locked up its No. 1 CB Sam Shields. Few cornerbacks in the league have been more successful in slowing down Calvin Johnson

than Charles Tillman. The Bears hope Tim Jennings will be up to the challenge against Golden Tate. Joining a pass-catching corps that includes â&#x20AC;&#x153;Megatronâ&#x20AC;? and a pair of terrific yards-aftercatch backs in Reggie Bush and Joique Bell, Tateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrival is huge for maligned quarterback Matt Stafford. Tate can also work inside, which could shine a spotlight on Kelvin Hayden, or perhaps a rookie to limit the tough receiverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s damage. Detroit swapped one hard-hitting safety, Louis Delmas, for another, former Raven James Ihedigbo. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4 years older than Delmas, but more durable and more familiar to new coordinator Teryl Austin. The Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; depth at defensive end is now thin after Emeryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poaching of Willie Young and Israel Idonije. The Packers and Lions, as currently constructed, are in precarious shape behind Aaron

Rodgers and Matt Stafford, respectively. Green Bay still hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t locked up last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unsung hero, Matt Flynn, leaving Scott Tolzien one Rodgersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; injury away from action. Meanwhile, the Lions downgraded while replacing longtime backup Shaun Hill with another familiar face, Dan Orlovsky. The Vikings have taken arguably the most forward-thinking approach in the division to free agency. The success of Mike Zimmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenure in Cincinnati stemmed from a deep and ferocious front four. Thus, Minnesota invested heavily this offseason in young linemen just entering the peak of their careers. In addition to acquiring Linval Joseph and Corey Wootton, and re-signing Everson Griffen, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll replace Jared Allen, the Vikings nabbed playmaking slot cornerback Captain Munnerlyn and lengthy former second-rounder Derek Cox.

Rock Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jacob Mammosser makes contact Thursday during the Rockets 13-8 win over Stillman Valley. Mammosser had two doubles and four RBIs to lead the Rocketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attack.

Rockets like playing with lead FINISH

CONTINUED FROM B1

Despite pitching with confidence, he gave up four runs in the inning on four hits, including a home run from Cardinal first baseman Zac Hare. But Erickson got out of the inning with an 8-5 lead. He finished with nine strikeouts to only one walk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talked to the guys about having a positive approach, and going up there without trying to do too much,â&#x20AC;? Stillman Valley coach Scott Wilhite said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our approach anyway, and we try to preach that approach any way we can.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was confident going

out there,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was my third game out there, and I relied on my defense, and they made plays. It was nice pitching [with the lead]; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never felt like that before. It was awesome to get the first win at the varsity level.â&#x20AC;? After Rock Falls went down in order in the bottom of the fifth, senior Dustin Huycke took over pitching duties. Some damage was done, but Huycke kept it to a minimum, as he gave up two runs on three hits in the inning, preserving an 8-7 lead. In the bottom half, the Rocketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bats once again heated up. With the top of the lineup due up, the first five hitters reached base and eventually scored for

Rock Falls. Mammosser picked up another pair of RBIs. He finished with four RBIs on three hits, which included a pair of doubles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We swung the bats better, probably the best we have all season,â&#x20AC;? Rocket coach Donnie Chappell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first time all year I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had the lead, and we kind of got flat and thought we had the game won. We did a nice job. Jacob had a nice hit in the sixth, and he hit well all day.â&#x20AC;? In the top of the seventh, the Rockets again ran into some trouble. Stillman loaded the bases in four batters before a run was walked in with only one out. Donoho came in to get out of the

jam, and he did just that. He struck out the ensuing batter before giving up a seeing-eye single that surrendered a run. However, the Rockets kept their cool, and Donoho forced a ground ball to short. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all in a slump now, and I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to change here. I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start winning more,â&#x20AC;? said Erickson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were just going through the motions, but now we want to play like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a life-or-death situation.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many more wins to come now,â&#x20AC;? added Mammosser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely the best to get that first one. We need to keep hitting the ball and keep pitching with less errors.â&#x20AC;?

This deal defeats many players

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

William Shakespeare wrote, “Defer no time, delays have dangerous ends.” How wrong could he be when applied to bridge? Many players make mistakes because they play too quickly. In particular, when a defender is on lead, a delay or two ... or three ... for analysis is rarely a bad idea. In this deal, for example, West leads the heart two against four spades. What should East do? North responds with four clubs, a perfect splinter bid, showing at least four-card spade support, game-going values and at most a singleton in clubs. East was tempted to overcall four hearts. However, the vulnerability was unfavorable,

East presumably had two cast-iron defensive tricks (so the opponents did not have a slam), and North-South owned the master suit. (Note that if East does intervene

with a four-heart bid, South should pass. North would be delighted to double for penalty and the price would be 1,100 or 1,400.) East knows that his partner has led a singleton. So, many a defender wins with his heart ace and immediately gives his partner a ruff. After that, there is no longer a defense. East should consider his target. Four tricks are needed, not three. From the pointcount, West is known to have a Yarborough. So, East must organize his diamond ruff before giving West his spade ruff. At trick two, East should shift to his diamond. Declarer will win in the dummy and play a spade, but East takes the trick and leads the heart eight, a suit-preference signal for diamonds. West, after ruffing, returns a diamond, and East’s ruff defeats the contract. © 2014 UFS

Amboy’s Destinee Oenes celebrates with teammates after hitting a walk-off two-run home run against Newman on Thursday in Amboy. Both teams wore shirts honoring the memory of Amboy teacher Mike Pasley, who died last month.

Oenes slugs game-winner Amboy senior hits walk-off homer against Comets "Y36-3PORTS3TAFF

Destinee Oenes’ second home run Thursday afternoon was a tworun, walk-off shot to lift the Amboy Clippers to a 6-4 victory over the Newman Comets in a Three Rivers battle in Amboy. Oenes finished the game with three RBIs, the biggest two coming with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. Kelsie Thurman also ripped a solo homer, and Hannah McCoy drove in a run on a fielder’s choice for the Clippers (7-0, 3-0). Karlee Doege went the distance in the circle for the win, striking out eight without a walk. Lakyn Waldschmidt took the tough loss, striking out eight and walking one. She also recorded the only two RBIs for the Comets (1-4, 0-3). Mary Alice Oswalt had two singles, Jenna Stevens singled and doubled, and Sam Miller singled and tripled for Newman.

Nitz happy with development of mental game MOMENTUM

CONTINUED FROM B1

“My mental game was strong today, and my shots were falling,” Nitz said. “I got it flowing early, and it’s good to see that; I got off top a rough start this season, and I finally feel like I got a solid win today.” Bratt controlled the No. 2 singles match, as the Dixon freshman repeatedly forced Sterling junior Martells to retreat after running to the net. “My cross-court forehand was on today; I just worked on it a lot Sunday, and his style was setting up nicely for it,” Bratt said. “He was coming to the net hard, and I was able to get the shots past him.” Leading 2-1, the Dukes (2-3, 1-1) wrapped up the team win when the No. 3 doubles team of Andy Clark and Brandon Helfrich finished off Sterling’s Alex Soriano and Jacob Reynolds 6-3, 6-1. The tightest match of the day came at No. 1 doubles, where Sterling’s Dustin Stoudt and Zak Khan won a 7-6 (4), 6-2 decision over Dixon’s Keenan Longan and Zach Healy. The teams traded games won throughout

Sterling 3, Geneseo 2:

A two-run single by Abri Hale in the fifth inning gave the Warriors the lead for good in NIB-12 West game in Geneseo. Lexy Staples picked up the win, allowing seven hits, two runs with three strikeouts and a walk. Shannon Long had a pair of hits for the Warriors (8-1, 2-0).

Dixon’s Sam Bratt returns a shot against Sterling’s Lane Martells during Thursday’s match at Emma Hubbs Courts. Bratt won 6-3, 6-3. the entire first set, before the Warrior duo took the tiebreaker 7-4. That propelled them to victory in the second set. The teams again traded games to start, but Sterling rattled off the final three games after taking a 3-2 lead, breaking the Dukes’ duo three times in the final set. “That tiebreaker is always key; I felt like it gave us a boost heading into the second set,” said Stoudt, a senior. “The key then was to not let them get back in it. We were pretty pumped, and we knew we had it when we finally won a few games in a row in the second set.” The closeness of the final score was no surprise

to either squad, as both teams were looking for a rivalry win to hopefully kick-start things after slow starts – especially after they both dropped their conference openers. Dixon ended up celebrating the win, while Sterling (0-3, 0-2) left still seeking its first win of the year. “It’s my first time playing them, and it’s nice to win such an intense rivalry,” Bratt said. “Whoever got the momentum first seemed to hold on to it today, and that’s nice to see, because we’ve been struggling a bit. This is a good overall win, and hopefully it leads to more good things the rest of the season.”

The Chicago Cubs were sailing along with a fourrun lead behind Travis Wood. That changed once he turned it over to the bullpen. Pedro Alvarez hit a three-run homer to cap a five-run seventh inning and Jason Grilli retired Emilio Bonifacio on a bases-loaded grounder to end the game, giving the Pittsburgh Pirates a 5-4 victory over the Cubs on Thursday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough, especially as well as Woody pitched,â&#x20AC;? reliever James Russell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You never want to mess up [an outing] that he had.

Bill Haas hits his approach shot on the 15th fairway Thursday during the first round of the Masters in Augusta, Ga. Haas holds a one-shot lead over former Masters champs Adam Scott and Bubba Watson, and 2012 runner-up Louis Oosthuizen.

One bad shot costs Scott lead PRESSURE

CONTINUED FROM B1

Haas, with a rich family history at Augusta that includes a green jacket for his great uncle Bob Goalby, settled down after an opening bogey with a collection of good birdie putts and an 8-iron to 5 feet for birdie on the 18th for a 68. It was the first time in 18 majors that Haas has had the lead after any round. That only gets him a crystal vase for the low round of the day at the Masters. Haas knows better than to put too much stock into what happens Thursday. He was leading after the opening round in Houston last week and tied for 37th. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tons of golf left,â&#x20AC;? he said. Only one first-round leader in the last 30 years has gone on to win the Masters.

Former Masters champion Bubba Watson, who slipped that green jacket on Scott last year, played his first bogey-free round in a major since the 2009 U.S. Open and shot a 69. So did Louis Oosthuizen, whom Watson beat in a playoff at Augusta. They were the only players to break 70, the fewest for an opening round at the Masters since 2007. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one is really going crazy out there in perfect, perfect conditions,â&#x20AC;? Graeme McDowell said after fighting to salvage a 72. But there was something about the way Scott played that grabbed most of the attention on such a gorgeous spring day in the South. Golf has been waiting for a star to take control all year, even more without Tiger Woods at Augusta for the first time in 20 years because of back surgery. Scott was in control of his

emotions and his game all day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; except for once. Walking over to the heart of Amen Corner, the fans behind the 12th tee rose in unison to cheer the champ. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The memory that will stick with me forever today was walking up to the 12th tee and everyone getting out of their seats as I approached there,â&#x20AC;? Scott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was great, the level of respect that everyone has for this golf tournament and what happens here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But then,â&#x20AC;? he said with a smile, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went and hit it in the water.â&#x20AC;? Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tee shot bounced off the front slope and into Raeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creek â&#x20AC;&#x201C; amazingly, he said it was his first shot into the water on that hole â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and he made double bogey to fall out of the outright lead. He picked up a birdie on the 14th, and three-putted for par on both the par 5s on the back nine.

Moving decisively and quickly could pave the way to an unexpected moneymaking venture. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Overindulgence is not an answer to your problems.
