More changes could come in City Hall

T

wo years ago today, federal agents were in City Hall, collecting computers and records and arresting Comptroller Rita Crundwell. The waves of her crime still are making their way through Dixon and through the federal agencies

that seized and sold her assets and prosecuted her. The U.S. Marshals Service has sold nearly all of Crundwell’s assets and given the city about $9.2 million in restitution. But more assets remain – a share in a land partnership and some bank accounts. And

marshals continues to look for more. Crundwell, who admitted to stealing nearly $54 million from the city over two decades, still can appeal her federal prison sentence of 19 years, 7 months.

Woods investing, growing Factory adding 23 jobs; Kinzinger optimistic on manufacturing BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5525

OREGON – With the economy ticking up, so is Woods Equipment Co. in Oregon, executives say. The company, which employs 300, plans to add 23 more jobs to its factory, where backhoes and other attachments for tractors are made. Last year, Woods, a division of Portland, Ore.-based Blount International, added a laser cutting system, which was the “biggest investment in 20 years,” said Mark Miller, the company’s chief financial officer. Executives said the equipment improves the plant’s accuracy and efficiency.

DIXON – A taste of the French countryside will be on the menu of local restaurants come this summer. Linda Knoll, of Dixon, has bought the former Fung Ming building downtown, where she hopes to open her 319 Bistro by the Fourth of July. It’s yet another business joining a kind of west-end renaissance. The breakfast-lunch-and-dinner bistro will have a French country theme, but all kinds of homemade food – French, Mexican, chicken, steaks, pastries, crepes, and on and on and on. She’s in negotiations with a local chef or two, and still is looking for a line cook and some wait staff. Alcohol will be served, but she’s shooting for a very particular atmosphere. “I want it to be a restaurant with a bar,” Knoll said, “not a bar with a restaurant,” like an Applebees or a Buffalo Wild Wings.

DIXON

Magdich revered on and off the bench Former 15th Circuit judge dies at 74 BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com    EXT

DIXON – Friends and family remember Tomas Magdich for his wit, dry sense of humor, and, of course, his speeches. Magdich, who served for 18 years as a judge in the 15th Judicial Circuit, died Tuesday. He was 74. Magdich was born in Gary, Ind., on July 2, 1939. His mother was a bookkeeper, and his father a carpenter. The hardworking and passionate nature Magdich was known for seems to have been instilled in him from a young age. He was just 13 when his father died, so Magdich worked as a newspaper delivery boy to help contribute to his family’s grocery money, according to his obituary, which is published on page A4 of today’s edition. After graduating from high school in Gary, Magdich attended Ripon College in Wisconsin, where he met his future wife, Judy, and majored in philosophy – an interest he kept throughout his life. Bob Thompson, Lee County

public defender and a longtime family friend, remembers sitting around the Magdiches’ kitchen table, staying up and debating philosophy and politics late into the night. “It was about exhanging ideas in a humorous and fun way,� Magdich’s son, Michael, said of the late-night talks. “He was always a student and very curious.� “He was a lover of philosophy and he loved politics, and to talk about both would happen on a daily basis,� Thompson said. “He’d always give you your chance to chime in, but by the time you ended the conversation you were usually on his side.� After graduating from Ripon, Magdich attended Northwestern Law School, and during his first year, he and his wife Judy were married. A job opportunity in Dixon with the firm Gunner and Keller is what brought the young family to Dixon, where he lived and worked as a private attorney and city attorney before being appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court as a 15th Circuit Court judge in 1985. The circuit includes Lee, Ogle, Carroll, Stephenson and Jo Daviess counties.

“He was beloved,� Thompson said. “There’s no question about it.� His sense of humor, too, was unique. Tomas “He had a Magdich really dry sense of humor that would always put people at ease,� Lee County Judge Ron Jacobson said. That same sense of humor carried over into his speeches, which Magdich was well known for making at various events throughout northern Illinois. Thompson and Magdich’s children, Michael, Amy, and Marjorie, talked about two speeches in particular. One of them, his children explained, started with a few jokes about how the Lee County Courthouse was designed by a company that made shopping malls, and then Murphy’s Law struck, and somehow he ended up working in it for nearly 20 years. “The style – you just can’t describe the style, because it was so unique,� Thompson said. “But it was a style that

would immediately capture you, and you couldn’t help but pay rapt attention to what he was saying. I wish I had that gift.� Another speech Magdich is well-known for was one called “The DCFS Investigation of Santa Claus,� which he delivered at a Bar Association dinner, Thompson said. Jacobson remembers arguing cases in front of Magdich as a young lawyer, and called him a very well-respected and intelligent man. “He would always be very thoughtful when he made his decisions,� Jacobson said. “He took his job very seriously and always kept in mind the concerns of all the parties involved. He was always a very accessible judge, too. You could always go up and talk to him and his opinion about issues, and he always enjoyed talking to lawyers in the community. He cared very much about the legal system and helping young lawyers become better lawyers, and he was always willing to help. “Judge Magdich will not be missed just by Lee County,� Jacobson said. “He had an impact on all of us in the circuit – all five counties in the circuit.

STERLING | NEIGHBORHOOD STABILIZATION GRANT

IN BRIEF

Area likely to remain green space After demolition, city’s options limited on some grant projects BY PAM EGGEMEIER PEGGEMEIER SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

STERLING – A halfblock vacant lot created by the demolition of distressed rental units near the Manahan Home is likely to be dressed up as green space. The property at 608-620 E. Third St. was the first acquired for demolition almost 5 years ago through the city’s Neighborhood Stabilization Program. One small commercial building and eight residential units were razed. The apartments were foreclosed in November 2009, and in June 2010 the City Council voted to tear them down. The city became involved in the housing program in 2010, receiving nearly $2.8 million from a federal grant. The main objective of the program is to buy and rehab

or rebuild foreclosed or abandoned properties, which then are sold to low- and moderateincome families. Rebuilding at this site is not an option, though. The buildings that were torn down had been put up lot line to lot line, and the space is not considered to be a buildable lot, said Mike Wolber, the city’s former building and zoning coordinator who leads the grant program. “We’ll probably dress it up a bit and leave it as open green space,� Wolber said. “It’s across from the Manahan Home, so we could plant some flowers, put some benches in, and use it as a resting area.� The city’s options also are limited by the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s grant requirements. The city could sell the property, but HUD says it

must be sold to adjoining property owners, and it must house low-income residents. The property also can’t be donated to anyone else. That would rule out giving it to the Manahan Home on both counts. “We haven’t made a decision yet,� Wolber said. “The city may just keep it.� If the area continues to be used as green space, it must remain city property. Some work has been done there, including the planting of trees a couple years ago, City Manager Scott Shumard said. “Given the grant stipulations, there are no real plans for the property at this time,� Shumard said. A grant technicality forced a transfer of the deed from the Sterling Industrial Development Commission to the city. SIDC bought the prop-

erty for $1,000 in 2009, before the grant funding became available, and HUD didn’t recognize the commission as a city entity for grant purposes. The transfer was made official at the April 14 commission meeting. Similar challenges exist with two other properties acquired through the program. Properties at East 10th Street and Sixth Avenue, and at Broadway and Fourth Street have lots that are too small to build on again. The adjoining properties at both sites are rentals and the city hopes the landlords could use the extra green space in an area where it is at a premium. “We are negotiating with the property owners,� Wolber said. “These buildings have no green space, and it offers something for recreational use.�

OREGON

Cause of restaurant fire not yet determined Shaw News Service

OREGON – The exact cause of a fire that destroyed a closed Oregon restaurant last month remains undetermined. Oregon Fire Chief Don Heller said Tuesday that

he had no information on the March 17 blaze at Whiskey’s River Smokehouse, 123 N. Second St. “I haven’t heard back yet from the fire marshal,� he said. The State Fire Marshal

is investigating the fire, which appeared to have started in the basement of the two-story building. The building’s owner, Kevin Wedel, who lived in the upstairs apartment, was not at home when the

He will be missed by all of us.� After his retirement in 2003, Magdich spent time teaching classes at Northern Illinois University. In his home life, as his children mentioned, Magdich threw himself into everything he did and had a real passion for learning, for fun, and for life. His children talked about how, while they were little, he would play the guitar and sing songs, and the whole family would sing along. Magdich loved traveling, and did so frequently with his family. He also loved gardening. Jacobson talked about one conversation in particular the two of them had when he mentioned off-handedly that he was getting ready to plant roses in his yard, which sparked a 20-minute conversation with Magdich about everything from planting tips to caring for roses. “Everything he did, he just did so intensely,� his children said. “The way he was at work – so good at that – he was like that with everything. He so totally loved gardening, and would come in at the end of a Saturday dirty from head to toe. He just threw himself in to so much.�

fire occurred around 8 p.m. The restaurant, which had been closed for some time, was near the fire station, overlooking the Rock River. Oregon firefighters were assisted by seven other fire departments.

OGLE COUNTY | SHERIFF’S DEPT.

OBITUARIES Tomas M. Magdich DIXON – The Honorable Tomas M. Magdich of Dixon died Tuesday, April 15, 2014. He was 74. He was born July 2, 1939, in Gary, Ind., to a bookkeeper, Ann Magdich, and a carpenter, Milan Magdich. His working-class childhood was made difficult by the death of his father at the age of 13. He was raised by a hardworking, single mother in the 1950s, and delivered papers to contribute to the family’s grocery money. Although his life was difficult, from early on, he always had a passion for school and learning. Tom graduated from Lew Wallace High School in 1957 in Gary, and then attended Ripon College. At Ripon College, he met his future spouse, Judith Lawson. He became president of his fraternity, where he developed many lifelong friendships. And it was at Ripon College where he was mentored to seek a career in law after graduating with a degree in philosophy. While attending Northwestern Law School, he discovered his passion for the law and his lifelong mission to help people seek justice. During his first year, he married Judith Lawson on Aug. 11, 1962. During his last year of law school, he found himself in need of employment due to the impending birth of their first child. A job opportunity with the firm Gunner and Keller is how he came to Dixon 50 years ago, a place that he thought would be a temporary home but grew to endear. Tom often told the story of how, as a young associate, he was given the cases that nobody else wanted or weren’t expected to win. With his passion for justice, he embraced those challenges, and after years of success, he became a named partner on July 1, 1971. While practicing law as an attorney, he argued landmark cases, but also had time to help with even minor disputes, because he held the deep belief that all people deserve representation. He knew justice was found in the big and small matters of life. He took his own dispute over parking tickets to court, and prevailed when the city parking meter

Eugene O’Neal

ordinance was found unconstitutional. On March 1, 1985, he was appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court as a Circuit Court Judge of the 15th Judicial Circuit. He was elected to the full term in 1986, and was retained in 1992 and 1998. In 1992, he received a 100 percent approval rating from the Illinois State Bar Association. He served 18 years on the bench before his retirement in December 2003. He loved the courtroom both as an attorney and as a judge. He was known to say that the courtroom offered the best show in town. In addition to being dedicated to the law and his career, Tom was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He loved always learning new things and traveling. He and Judy instilled those interests in their children and grandchildren. Always being a student of life made him an excellent teacher to his children, to his colleagues, and eventually to university students at Northern Illinois Law School.

Change in form of government considered WAVES

That means there could be more judges and lawyers spending more time reviewing her crime and its impact on Dixon. The waves continue. In the past 2 years, the city has hired a new finance director, Paula Meyer, and a city administrator, David Nord. Both were brought in as a direct result of Crundwell’s theft. In November, Dixon residents will vote on whether to change the city’s form of government from commission to city manager. The ballot question was first recommended by a governmental task

force appointed by Dixon Mayor Jim Burke, then approved by the City Council. The consideration of the best form of government for Dixon also is a result of the Crundwell saga. In the current commission form, elected officials have the executive and policymaking authority. A change to the city manager form would give executive authority to a city manager, while the elected officials would retain policymaking authority, among other nuances. The waves continue. I’m now the third reporter on the Dixon beat since Crundwell’s arrest. I wasn’t even living in the state when she was

arrested, yet I write her name and reference her crime about three times a week. Every time I run a spell check on a story with her name in it, I see what the system thinks I actually mean. It always suggests the same thing: Groundswell. It’s an odd coincidence. But it became more odd during an interview April 8 between Burke, Meyer, Nord and the Sauk Valley Media editorial board. Burke said it is likely, but not certain, that he will seek re-election in 2015. The mayor said he thinks some of the initial anger toward him and the City Council has receded, so “unless there’s some groundswell� to make him think

I likely was the only person in the room of 10 people who latched onto the word “groundswell.� I also likely was the only one there who sees it so often as a suggested correction for the word “Crundwell.� More than anything, Burke’s re-election might depend on voters’ opinions of Crundwell and her crime.

Administration building plans going forward BY VINDE WELLS VWELLS SHAWMEDIACOM 3HAW.EWS3ERVICE

OREGON – Despite some opposition to the location, the Ogle County Board went ahead Tuesday with plans to build a new sheriff’s administration building. The board accepted a $4.1 million bid from Rockford Structures. Plans call for the building to be at 103 Jefferson St., which is the site of the current sheriff’s office. However, that site has brought opposition from some board members and citizens. Beth Henderson, owner of the Eagles Nest, which is a block north of the sheriff’s building, urged the board to reconsider because that area, which is next to the Rock River, has been earmarked for a riverfront district. “Oregon has all the components to promote tourism,� she said. One of the main components for tourism and recreation is the river and the area surrounding it, she said. Although she owns land nearby, Henderson said she had never been contacted about plans for the new sheriff’s building. By not allowing the area to be developed for tourism, the county will reduce the value of her property, she said. A better location for the sheriff’s building, she said, would be on property the county owns on South Sixth Street, west of the judicial center. Henderson asked the board to delay the project at least long enough to do an economic impact study of the area and determine the effect the sheriff’s building would have on it, as opposed to

tourism development. She said Western Illinois University had agreed to do the study at no cost to the county. WIU did an economic impact study before the judicial center was built. Oregon City Commissioner Ken Williams also asked for a 30-day moratorium on the project to allow time for the study. He said the area is a main part of the riverfront district in Oregon’s Comprehensive Plan 10 years ago. Board member Skip Kenney, Rochelle, made a motion to table the bid until the May 20 meeting to allow time to do the study. “I do not support the location. I support the project,� he said. “All I’m asking for is 30 days.� Board chairman Kim Gouker, Byron, said he did not understand the opposition to the location. He said the new building would be a “$4 million improvement� over the present century-old building. “The sheriff’s department has been there for 30 years,� he said. Board member Ron Colson, Mount Morris, disagreed. “It’s a $4 million roadblock to tourism,� he said. The motion to table the bid failed by a vote of 13-8. The new administration building will house the sheriff’s department, 911 communications center, and the coroner’s office and morgue. Architect Guy Gehlhausen said Rockford Structures’ bid was the lowest of eight submitted. Rockford Structures is also the contractor for the new Sinnissippi Centers Inc. building across Jefferson Street from the sheriff’s office.

Forensic audit could cost about $7,500 AUDIT

CONTINUED FROM A1

“I think it’s just time to move forward and look at the positive things that we’re doing,� he said. “And the only way to do that is to take a look at the things that have been brought to our attention.� The sheriff’s department collection of a $350 fee for towing vehicles in certain arrests was authorized by a county ordinance in 2011, and in its first 2 years had income of $210,400. In December, Sauk Valley Media reported that Sheriff Michael Harn had used the tow fund to pay for a variety of department expenses, including repairs to vehicles and a $4,000 management fee for the department’s Facebook page. In February, the County Board restricted how the money in the fund could be used and ordered that it be transferred to the county treasurer, which was finally done on Tuesday, when Harn gave Treasurer John Coffman a check for $51,932.07. Harn didn’t give the treasurer the fund’s ledger or any other documentation of spending from the fund. During Tuesday night’s County Board meeting, Gouker said sev-

eral board members had questions about the ledger and other records. Gouker said those questions “reinforcedâ€? his decision to support a forensic audit. Even though Gouker said he didn’t think anything was being withheld by Harn not turning over the ledger, he thinks this would be a good time to get “a firm handle onâ€? a relatively new fund for Ogle County. Other county funds handled by elected officials get “refinedâ€? during years of use, Gouker said. The tow fund hasn’t had that refinement, he said, which could happen through a forensic audit. That refining is part of a forensic audit’s “dual purpose,â€? Gouker said. “Since there have been so many questions about wrongdoing ‌ whether people think that there has been no money misspent or that there has, doing it this way will let us see one way or the other where it’s at,â€? he said. Gouker said Harn supported the new audit and would cooperate with auditors. The forensic audit could cost about $7,500, Gouker said during the Tuesday County Board meeting. It could be approved by the County Board next month.

At the moment, the solid little brick building, vacant for about 4 years, is in tres terrible shape, with broken pipes, a leaky roof and trash all over its 3,600 square feet, but she’s cleaning up everything with the help of her youngest, Cole Blackburn, who turns 15 this month, and a few of his pals. “I don’t know where I’d be without them; they’ve got the muscles!� she said.

EDITORIAL | TWO-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF CRUNDWELL ARREST

Recovery incomplete, 2 years afterward W

atershed events, sometimes tragic, sometimes joyous, mark all of our lives. They mark the life of a city, too. April 17, 2012, is a date that represents one of those major divisions of time for the city of Dixon. It was on that date, 2 years ago today, that then-Comptroller Rita Crundwell was arrested by the FBI on a charge of fraud that eventually expanded to encompass her theft of nearly $54 million from city coffers over more than 2 decades. Before April 17, 2012, Crundwell was considered an efficient public servant who operated a successful quarter horse breeding ranch on the side and exhibited champion horses at major shows.

After April 17, 2012, Crundwell came to be considered a brazen, heartless thief who lived a lavish lifestyle by secretly defrauding the citizens of Dixon of a breathtaking amount of money. Her eventual guilty plea in federal court led to a federal prison sentence of nearly 20 years. Her ill-gotten gains have been mostly liquidated, and a lawsuit settlement in Dixon’s favor led to the city recouping a total of nearly $40 million. What about the city of Dixon? How has it responded to the huge fraud perpetrated against it? Mayor Jim Burke, who consented to an interview last week with the Sauk Valley Media Editorial Board, brought with him two living examples

sioner David Blackburn, who oversees the city’s Accounts and Finances department, and who refuses to answer reporters’ questions. Broadsided by a scandal of astonishing proportions, city officials have done a number of things right. But until the lingering mysteries – the executive session minutes, the loans, and Blackburn’s troubling reticence – are settled, the job of bouncing back from that watershed event is not yet finished. Asked to give the city a grade on its response (and we were, by Mayor Burke), we’ll have to give the overall effort an incomplete thus far. A year from now might well be a different story. We can only hope.

This week, April 13-19, communities across the country celebrate National Library Week to remind the public about the contributions that libraries, librarians and library workers make to their communities. “Lives Change at your Library� is the fitting theme for this year’s National Library Week celebration. Libraries of all types serve as catalysts in their communities, offering opportunities for children and adults alike to learn, grow and achieve their dreams. I would like to take this

opportunity to let the community know that there will be an hours change at your library beginning Saturday, May 3, at the Dixon Public Library. Libraries have historically served as our nation’s great equalizers of knowledge, providing free access to information for all people, but for many years our library has not served the children equally because the youth department closed 2 hours earlier than the adult department. Starting May 3, the new hours will be 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday in both departments. Library usage reports, as well as patron surveys, were used to determine hours that I hope will best meet the needs of the community.

If you haven’t been to the library in a while, I encourage you to stop in and get a card during National Library Week. Library cards are free to those who live within the city limits of Dixon and are $50 per household for non-residents. Your library card can be used to check out materials from the library or to download e-books, audiobooks, or magazines from our digital services. Your library card is also reciprocal at other libraries in Illinois. National Library Week is the perfect time to remember that when it is time to make a change and improve your life, the place to be is at your library. Note to readers: Lynn Roe is the Dixon Public Library director.

SPRINGFIELD SCOOP

Research finds the facts about Haymarket Riot aftermath Workers accused in murders of seven policemen had a fair trial SPRINGFIELD – Growing up during the Cold War, I always thought May Day was a bit ominous. On the evening news, we’d watch tanks, missiles and soldiers march by the reviewing stands in Moscow, Beijing and Havana where stone-faced Communist leaders would look on as their minions toiled. Even today, May Day is the most important day on the calendar for communist and socialist parties around the globe. It’s also the day socialists wave red flags from Copenhagen to Cape Town and from Paris to Hanoi. And May Day has its roots here in the Land of Lincoln. In Chicago, to be precise, at an event called the Haymarket Riot in May 1886.

As a high school student, I was taught that a group of peaceful workers demonstrating for a shorter workday were attacked by Chicago police. And, after some police officers were killed when a bomb exploded, innocent workers were unfairly tried and hanged. In fact, that is what people around the world have been taught. It’s a prevarication, bound up in falsehood and wrapped in a lie. By the standards of the 1880s, it was a fair trial. In fact, it was one of the first trials where scientific forensic evidence was presented. YES, I’M AWARE THAT history is full of myths. George Washington didn’t chop down a cherry tree. The Liberty Bell didn’t crack on July 4, 1776. And, Benjamin Franklin almost certainly didn’t fly a kite in a thunderstorm. But the prevailing tale that emerges about the Haymarket Riot here in Illinois bears absolutely no resemblance to truth.

scottREEDER Scott Reeder is a reporter in residence for the Illinois Policy Institute. Contact him at sreeder@ illinoispolicy. org.

Each year, International May Day commemorates the death of the “innocent� Haymarket demonstrators executed by the state of Illinois. As the Soviet revolutionary Vladimir Lenin once said, “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.� In fact, 10 years ago, the Illinois Legislature spent $300,000 to erect a sculpture honoring the “victims� of the Haymarket Riot. Of course, the “victims� are no longer just seven police officers killed. They also include the four murderers hanged and the one who committed suicide in his jail cell by smoking a stick of dynamite.

A plaque on the monument says the men were “unfairly tried.� But a funny thing happened on the way to the Politburo. During a lecture on the Haymarket incident, Timothy MesserKruse, a history professor at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, told his students the Haymarket demonstrators received an unfair trial and were convicted despite there being no evidence against them. “And then a student raised her hand and asked, ‘If there wasn’t any evidence, what was presented during that 6-week trial?’ It was an ‘aha moment.’ I didn’t have an answer for her. I was teaching what I had been taught, but it got me wondering, and I decided to look at the original trial transcripts,� he said. And what he found stunned him. The trial was the longest and most exhaustive held in Illinois up to that point. In fact, it pioneered the use of forensic evidence.

In fact, Messer-Kruse asked a Yale University chemistry professor to use modern technology to compare the evidence today. They still matched. The evidence against the

BUT THE POLITICAL supporters of the defendants billed the men as innocent martyrs. “The prosecutors in the case didn’t have a reason to speak out after the men were executed. So the history was largely written by those who had a political agenda to support these men,� Messer-Kruse said. By the way, MesserKruse is a liberal himself and a strong supporter of organized labor. “The part of the problem is the Haymarket has become a part of labor history, and it’s part of the ethos of the labor movement,� he said.

BUSINESS OF FLYING

High oil prices actually good for airlines Trend led to every expense being scrutinized, helped up efficiency NEW YORK (AP) – Airline executives frequently complain about fuel costs. But the truth is, higher prices actually have been good for business. In the past 6 years, airlines have overhauled the way they operate to adjust to this new reality. They’ve shown more discipline by offering fewer seats, which ensures airfares are high enough to cover costs. Unprofitable routes have been eliminated. And every expense has been scrutinized. These changes, along with high oil prices, have created an insurmountable roadblock to startup airlines that hope to undercut established carriers.

“Traditionally, it was too easy to start an airline and too difficult to kill one off,� says Jamie Baker, an airline analyst with JPMorgan Chase. No more. A decade ago, airlines were paying just $1.42 a gallon for fuel, when adjusted for inflation. Last year, they paid an average of $3.03 a gallon, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. Fuel now accounts for more than a third of airlines’ expenses, overtaking salaries, wages and benefits as the single biggest line item. U.S. carriers burned through 16 billion gallons of jet fuel last year at a cost of $48.4 billion. That’s up nearly $23 billion from

of a roundtrip domestic ticket – including baggage and reservation change fees – grew to $378.62 from $351.48 in the last 5 years, when adjusted for inflation. All of that has them on pace for a fifth consecutive year of profits. A big reason for the streak: The majors aren’t facing the myriad of flyby-night start-ups that disrupted their business in the past. Low-cost carriers like PeopleExpress and ValueJet used to be able to enter markets, charge a lot less to fly and push the established carriers out. Now – since fuel is such a great expense – that doesn’t happen anymore, said Scott Kirby, president of American Airlines, at a recent aviation symposium in Phoenix. “It’s an equalizer,� Kirby said.

But the truth is higher prices actually have been good for business. 10 years ago – when the airlines consumed 2 billion more gallons of fuel. So why is this good? High oil prices forced the major airlines to do business differently. They grounded older,

gas-guzzling jets. Then they charged extra for checking baggage and raised other fees. More passengers were packed into planes, and mergers helped push airfares higher. The average cost

Skybus Airlines launched in May 2007, promising to sell at least 10 seats on each of its flights for $10. By the following April, a spike in fuel prices proved fatal, and the airline shut down operations overnight. Without that competition, legacy carriers have avoided fare wars and kept ticket prices high. “This represents the longest post-deregulation stretch that nobody has started a new airline in the United States,� Baker says. Virgin America was the last major new U.S. carrier. But since it started flying in August 2007, the San Francisco-based airline has lost hundreds of millions of dollars. It didn’t post its first annual profit until last year, and that was only after it stopped its rapid expansion.

Officials: Strip club tax brings Chicago casino plan draws in less revenue than expected more support at hearing SPRINGFIELD (AP) – Illinois officials say a strip club tax has generated less than 40 percent of the money that was expected when the surcharge was approved. The “pole tax� raised about $380,000 in 2013 – far less than the $1 million predicted when the measure passed the General Assembly in 2012, according to a report by the Springfield bureau of

Lee Enterprises newspapers. Strip clubs can pay a $3 tax for every customer or an annual fee that ranges from $5,000 to $25,000, based on sales. All the money raised by the tax is earmarked for rape crisis centers. Polly Poskin, executive director of the Illinois Coalition Against Sexual Assault, attributed the lower-than-expected revenue to the fact that the require-

ment only applies to strip clubs that sell or allow alcohol. Chicago bans alcohol at its strip clubs. “We’re very grateful for the amount we’re getting,� she said. Sue Hofer, spokeswoman for the Illinois Department of Revenue, says 37 companies paid the tax. The Illinois Department of Human Services will distribute the money beginning this summer.

Plan also drew criticism from downstate officials CHICAGO (AP) – A proposal for a state-owned Chicago casino won praise Wednesday from business groups and a warmer reception from a state regulatory board than past attempts to expand gambling, but the plan also drew criticism from downstate officials and the horse racing industry, which said it would cheat them out of needed revenues and jobs. The hearing in Chicago, which wasn’t heated like public exchanges in other parts of Illinois, was the latest attempt to bolster gambling, but questions were also raised about support for the legislation in an election year in which other major fiscal issues are pending. Previous bills approved by legislators were twice rejected by Gov. Pat Quinn largely over ethical concerns about corruption, and last year’s bill calling for five casinos fizzled out after the Illinois Gaming Board scrutinized plans that would have allowed Chicago to have author-

ity over a casino. State Rep. Bob Rita, a Blue Island Democrat sponsoring the plans, said he wanted to gauge interest in a Chicago-only plan and give lawmakers options. Two proposals are on the table: One adds five casinos, including in Chicago, plus slots at racetracks. The other calls for a mega-casino in Chicago. In both plans, the Chicago casino would be state run, which Rita said was in response to past criticism. Though neither Quinn nor Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel have weighed in recently, the board that regulates Illinois’ 10 existing casinos highlighted the changes. “There are certainly improvements,� gaming board attorney Caleb Melamed told lawmakers. “This is a significantly different piece of legislation than previous years.� He voiced other concerns about the potential of saturating the market with other Chi-

cago area casinos. He also questioned a staterun casino, a model that’s unusual among other states. The Chicago Crime Commission objected to the structure, calling for an operator-owned model like other casinos and more protections against corruption. Chicago area pastors and anti-gambling groups also warned lawmakers of possible social costs on either plan, such as more people hooked on gambling. “Casino gambling is really nothing more than an increased tax on those who can’t afford it,� said Matt Fitzgerald, senior pastor at St. Pauls United Church of Christ in Chicago. Noticeably absent from Wednesday’s hearing were Chicago city officials, even while chamber of commerce groups said a downtown Chicago casino – in either plan – would create jobs and benefit the economy with estimated revenues between $450 million to $950 million.

Father is selfish to put his health at risk Dear Abby: I am a 34-year-old wife and mother of four. I’m concerned about my husband. He is 44 and drinks at home every evening after work. I don’t mind him having a few cans of beer, but he drinks between six and 12 a day. He refuses to see a doctor for checkups or when he is sick. I am worried about his health. The drinking could have an impact, and I would like him to have a physical exam to put my mind at ease. I tell my husband I

tired of fighting over his drinking. His response is, “At least I do it at home and not at the bar.� I think he is being selfish and thinking only of himself. He talks about “pride.� How can I get him to cut down on his drinking or see a doctor as needed? – Worried Wife in Guam

DEARABBY !BIGAIL6AN "URENS *EANNE 0HILLIPS COLUMN APPEARS DURINGTHE WEEKTHROUGH 5NIVERSAL 0RESS 3YNDICATE

Dear Wife: Your husband is an alcoholic. He may want him to take care of not want to see a doctor himself to live longer for because he knows what our children’s sake (our the doctor will tell him. It is youngest is 4). At times, important that you underwe argue about it, and I’m stand you can’t control

another person’s behavior. The only person who can “get� your husband to stop drinking or cut down is him. For your own emotional well-being, I’m advising you to contact Al-Anon. Al-Anon is a fellowship of family members and friends of alcoholics, and it was created to help people just like you. Visit Al-AnonFamilyGroups.org, call 888-4AL-ANON or email wso@al-anon.org. You may also want to contact your department of mental health services for guid-

ance. I can’t guarantee that it will help with your husband’s illness – because alcoholism is one – but it will help you to cope. Dear Abby: I’m 13 and in middle school. We have a program called an iPad Pilot Program in which students are given an iPad for a year to use in daily classroom activities. I’m a responsible honor student, yet somehow some scratches appeared on it one day. My parents are really tight with money. I’m afraid if I

tell them, I’ll get in trouble. I have some video games I don’t play anymore that I can sell to fix the scratches, but if I do, my parents will find out. I guess I don’t want them to be upset or think I’m irresponsible. Please tell me what to do. – In A Bind Dear In A Bind: Some wear and tear on items that are issued to students is to be expected. Stop stalling and tell your parents. They are going to find out eventually, and it is better that they hear it from you.

MOVIE REVIEW | â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;TRANSCENDENCEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Thriller canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t transcend sci-fi cliches BY ROGER MOORE -#4.EWS3ERVICE

For years, the rumor about Johnny Depp was that he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take a role that required him to get a haircut. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chocolat,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pirates of the Caribbean,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once Upon a Time in Mexico,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sleepy Hollowâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; mop-topped coincidences, or a career vanity?

He cuts it off, but he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pull it off.

The directing debut of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dark Knightâ&#x20AC;? cinematographer Wally Pfister is a mopey affair with indifferent performances, heartless romance and dull action. It transcends nothing. Depp is Dr. Will Caster, a mathematician, computer genius and artificial intelligence theorist who, with the help of his brilliant wife (Rebecca

And since this tale is told by Max in flashback, from a desolate, off-the-electrical-grid San Francisco 5 years in the future, we figure Max knows what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talking about. Terrorists have decided that this project is a threat and try to blow it up and kill Dr. Caster. They almost succeed, sentencing the not-somad scientist to a lingering death. That gives his friends the chance to try

this is where the trouble starts. Kate Mara suggests nothing fanatical, clever or fearsome as the leader of the RIFT revolutionaries who tried to kill Caster and who then kidnap Max. Depp and Hall are supposed to have this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ghostâ&#x20AC;?-level love, a romance of longing that drives her actions to save him, in spite of Willâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warnings to her. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set off sparks. Morgan Freeman shows up as a grandfatherly skeptic scientist, Cole Hauser as a military man brought in to deal with the growing problem that happens

when Willâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insatiable brain gets on the Internet, manipulates Wall Street and starts to plan a technological revolution. The script suggests the miracles that biotech has in store for us â&#x20AC;&#x201C; repairing injuries and infirmities with nanotechnology 3-D laser printers and the like. The lame will walk and the blind will see. But there will be a cost, a cost common to sci-fi stories about â&#x20AC;&#x153;the singularityâ&#x20AC;? and the unlimited power it promises. Depp is a bland presence as a disembodied face on a computer screen. Hall seems to wish she had a flesh-andblood actor to emote to, and Bettany spends far too much time with Mara, who has never been worse in a movie. As Max says, in his narration and elsewhere, this sort of dilemma seems â&#x20AC;&#x153;inevitable,â&#x20AC;? given the state of our wired-in world. But we learned that from â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Terminator.â&#x20AC;? The trick is to transcend sci-fi tropes, get past â&#x20AC;&#x153;People fear what they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understandâ&#x20AC;? and get into the experience of Willâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existence across the digital divide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Transcendenceâ&#x20AC;? doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.

Comets outlast Missiles in 11 innings at Millwheel Deja vu (& doo) for Versteeg

BY PATRICK PETROSKY ppetrosky@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5554

MILLEDGEVILLE – It took 11 innings to find a winner in a potential regional preview matchup between Newman and Milledgeville on Wednesday at Millwheel Park. With the score knotted up at 5, the Comet offense exploded and cranked out six runs to take home an 11-5 victory in a bitter cold wind. Sam Miller picked up the win for the Comets, as she went all 11 innings. She gave up five runs and 14 hits, striking out 17 while allowing four walks. “She pitched a great game today,” said catcher Julie Hurd of Miller. “She was hitting all of her spots, which was nice for me and made my job a lot easier. She did a great job, but I think everyone picked it up all around. We all played great defense. All around, it was good.” Morgan Adolph took the loss for the Missiles, after pitching 6 1/3 innings in relief of sophomore starter Sam Schmidt. The wind affected teams in all areas of the game, whether it was pitching, hitting or fielding. With the wind blowing out, Kayleigh Leddy was the first hitter to take advantage, as she bombed a high fly ball over the fence with a runner on to give her Missiles a 2-0 lead in the second inning. “They had to hit in the wind, we had to hit in the wind,” Missiles coach Brad Grenoble said. “They had to play defense in the wind, we had to play defense

We also hit a lot of line drives instead of getting balls higher up.” The Comets quickly responded, as Hurd drove in a run that sparked an RBI apiece from Jenna Stevens and Mary Alice Oswalt that staked Newman to a 3-2 lead in the third.

Milledgeville tacked on a pair of runs playing small ball – one in the fourth, and one in the fifth – to take a 4-3 lead. Once again, Hurd responded for her team in the seventh. Both she and Stevens hit runscoring doubles to restore the lead to Newman, 5-4. RALLY CONTINUED ON B6

Comet bats back up Coomes Big inning sends Newman past Missiles BY PATRICK MASON pmason@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5550

MILLEDGEVILLE – Newman pitcher Quincy Coomes’ left foot kept disappearing into a hole. The junior’s landing foot was swallowed up by a large divot on the mound at Millwheel Park in a game against host Milledgeville. The score was tight, and with the gusting wind, the righthander couldn’t quite focus. “It’s always tough to pitch when the game is close,” Coomes said, “and that mound is especially tough to pitch from, too.” Luckily for Coomes, the Michael Krabbenhoeft/mkrabbenhoeft@saukvalley.com Comets’ bats were able Newman’s Quincy Coomes throws a pitch during to take one thing off his the Comets’ nonconference game Wednesday in mind, as an offensive Milledgeville. Coomes allowed one hit through five explosion in the fifth inning helped propel innings in Newman’s 10-1 victory.

After struggling to generate offense in the early portion of the season, the Comets’ bats came to life. They got production from everywhere in the lineup, and it was the bottom of the order that sparked an eightrun fifth inning that broke a 1-1 tie since the first inning.

Nine-hole hitter A.J. Sharp roped a single to lead off the inning. The next two batters reached, and all of a sudden, Newman had the bases loaded with no outs and the heart of the order coming to bat. “It’s always good when the bottom of the order can come through,” Comets leadoff hitter Dillan Heffelfinger said. “When everyone is rolling, it gets contagious.” Newman was happy to catch the bug, as it sent 12 batters to the plate in the top half of the fifth. Twice the Comets loaded the bases, and they produced runs each time. Alex Buhler singled home the first two runs of the inning to break the 1-1 tie. BATS CONTINUED ON B6

HICAGO – Kris Versteeg unveiled a new haircut Wednesday. The Blackhawks’ winger had his hair closely shaved along the sides and in the back. On top of his head, a patch of floppy blonde hair remained. “I call it the ‘Stigglemore,’” Versteeg said. “It’s a mix between myself, Macklemore and a little bit of anything else in between. So, it’s got a lot going on here.” Lord Stanley, meet Stigglemore. Stigglemore, meet Lord Stanley. If anyone can balance crazy hair with a seriously effective playoff performance, it’s Versteeg. He might be the most grateful player on the ice today when the Hawks visit the St. Louis Blues for Game 1 of the Western Conference quarterfinals. Because Versteeg, 27, never thought he would be in this spot with this team again. He was part of the Hawks’ Stanley Cup championship team in 2010, only to be traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs 3 weeks later as part of a salary-cap dump. In the three seasons that followed, Versteeg bounced from the Maple Leafs to the Philadelphia Flyers, and then from the Flyers to the Florida Panthers. His journey came full circle in midNovember, when the Hawks reacquired him from the Panthers in exchange for young players Jimmy Hayes and Dylan Olsen. Now that Versteeg is back with the Hawks, he’s taking nothing for granted. DOO CONTINUED ON B2

NASCAR SPRINT CUP

Team strong as ever Hendrick looking like usual powerhouse so far

Today

BY PETE IACOBELLI !03PORTS7RITER

DARLINGTON, S.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; One thingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crystal clear as NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sprint Cup series heads into its annual Easter break: Hendrick Motorsports looks as strong as ever. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay attention to the lack of wins, with just Dale Earnhardt Jr.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season-opening Daytona 500 victory in the ledger. Instead, see that three of the Hendrick superstars are in the top five in points, with Jeff Gordon leading way, Earnhardt in fourth, and six-time series champ Jimmie Johnson fifth. All four team drivers, including Kasey Kahne, took a turn leading the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway on Saturday night. Earnhardt and Johnson each led during two green-white-checkered runs before Kevin Harvickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s swept past Dale Jr. on the next-tolast lap to take the race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this is as good as this team has ever been,â&#x20AC;? said Earnhardt, still seeking his first series title since joining up with Hendrick. No oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s running as consistently well as Gordon right now. His seventh-place finish at Darlington was his sixth race in the top 10 this season. Those two where he missed? A 13th at Fontana, and a 12th at Martinsville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good to be leading the points, but I feel like [itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] a missed opportunity,â&#x20AC;? Gordon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But another great race car, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy about that.â&#x20AC;? Kahneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program has struggled so far, at 23rd in points, and has had finishes of 31st and 22nd before a wreck knocked him from among the leaders at Darlington. He faded to 37th. Hendrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consistency up top could be its way into the Chase for the Championship. When NASCAR changed its format to emphasize wins, teams and drivers loved

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know probably better than anyone that you never know when you might get traded, and how much time you might have [with a team],â&#x20AC;? said Versteeg, who has scored 102 career goals in seven seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to make it always count. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stuff can happen so fast, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really got to take care of your body and understand that every time you pull over an NHL sweater, no matter where it is, that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special. And especially when you come back to somewhere like here, it makes it that much more special, really.â&#x20AC;? Versteeg can come across as a bit Hollywood at times, which should not surprise anyone who saw his rap celebration on stage at the 2010 Stanley Cup celebration. But the past few months have shown that he can be a selfless teammate and a versatile player who can play on any line and serve almost any role necessary. On Wednesday, Versteeg practiced alongside Jonathan Toews and Brandon Saad. After rejoining the Hawks, he notched 10 goals with 19 assists in 63 games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] been with us and understands what it takes, obviously,â&#x20AC;? Hawks General Manager Stan Bowman said after the deal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been through the grind of a playoff, and he understands the sacrifices you have to make as a player. â&#x20AC;Ś

Versteegâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teammates appreciate his influence on and off of the ice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great guy in the locker room since heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s joined our team again,â&#x20AC;?

I know heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comfortable here in Chicago, and he played some of his best hockey in 2010 in the playoffs, so hopefully he can do that again this year.â&#x20AC;?

He finished the playoffs with 14 points and a plus-4 rating in 22 games. Versteeg was a kid back then, a 23-year-old who had no idea what would come next. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last time was definitely a blur,â&#x20AC;? Versteeg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You remember bits and pieces, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to kind of watch stuff to really remember it, because you were so young and it went so fast.â&#x20AC;? This time around, Versteeg has greater perspective. Not to mention a Stigglemore.

The Bobcatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cody Zeller loses the ball as he falls in front of the Bullsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Carlos Boozer (5) during the regular-season finale for both teams Wednesday night in Charlotte. The Bulls lost 91-86 in OT, but secured the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Bulls actually win by losing finale Chicago nabs 4th seed in East BY K.C. JOHNSON #HICAGO4RIBUNE

CHARLOTTE, N.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Joakim Noah, the floor is yours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before you start asking any questions, I would like to say I appreciate my teammates for a hard season,â&#x20AC;? Noah said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We worked our [butts] off. Even though it ends on a sad note losing to the Charlotte Bobcats, overall we gave it everything we had. And there are no regrets in that.â&#x20AC;? The Bulls won by losing Wednesday night, falling 91-86 in overtime but staying in the fourth seed and drawing the Wizards in the first round, beginning at 6 p.m. Sunday at the United Center. Washington leapfrogged the Nets into fifth place in the Eastern Conference. The fourth seed also means the Bulls would draw the Pacers in the second round should they advance, avoiding the two-time defending champion Heat until the conference finals if they make it. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skipping steps, and coach Tom Thibodeau doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t roll that way. Though the Wizards took two of three during the regular season from the Bulls, the Nets have been the secondbest Eastern Conference team behind the Bulls since Jan. 1. The Nets rested all their regulars in losing Wednesday to drop to sixth. The Bulls didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, with Jimmy Butler tying a career-high with five steals in 47 minutes, 55 seconds, and Noah logging 42:23. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we needed to do that,â&#x20AC;? Thibodeau said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;D.J. [Augustin] missed a game, so I think it was important for him to get minutes. Once you start resting guys, sometimes they get out of rhythm. Our team is well-rested.

Star of the game: *OAKIM.OAH "ULLS POINTS REBOUNDS ASSISTS Up next: Playoffs, FIRSTROUND 7IZARDSAT "ULLS PM3UNDAY TV/Radio:#3. 4.4 1000 AM Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been concerned with rest for awhile, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve given our guys a lot of days off. I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in great shape.â&#x20AC;? Augustinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 17 points led the Bulls, who went scoreless from the 2:27 mark of regulation to 1:30 left in overtime. They finished the regular season 48-34. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to lie: This is the hardest season Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever been a part of, physically and mentally,â&#x20AC;? Noah said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just really proud of everybody, all the work that people put in. You could just tell after every practice, everybody was shooting. Everybody put in extra work to get their games in order. Seriously, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been around a group of guys who work so hard.â&#x20AC;? The work begins anew against the Wizards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tough, tough team, man,â&#x20AC;? Taj Gibson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They gave us so many problems in the regular season. Great shooters. Great bigs in Nene and [Marcin] Gortat. John Wall is playing some great basketball. Bradley Beal is playing great, too. Their bench is loaded.â&#x20AC;? But playoffs are what the work is for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like my boy Mike Dunleavy just told me, this is the fruit of our labor,â&#x20AC;? Noah said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, we will have fun in the playoffs.â&#x20AC;? Dunleavy, seated nearby, interjected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pretty sure I said it better than that,â&#x20AC;? he cracked. Yep, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a loose Bulls team for the fun part of the season.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Fabulous Time Time to Buy a Home...

Third overcall with a new meaning

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

We have been looking at the balancing overcalls that have different meanings from those in the second position. Here is the third. Look at the South hand. After one spade - pass - pass, what should South do? Directly over one spade, if North jumps to two no-trump, it would be the Unusual Notrump, indicating at least 5-5 in the two lowest-ranking unbid suits. In the fourth position, though, it shows a (quasi-)balanced hand with some 20-21 points and at least one stopper in the opener’s suit; though you might have slightly fewer high-card points when holding a reasonable six-card minor. In this deal, North then transfers into hearts before

rebidding three no-trump to offer South a choice of games. With only two hearts, he selects three no-trump. (Note that four hearts fails, the defenders taking three

diamonds and one heart.) Against three no-trump, West leads the spade queen. How should South continue? Declarer has eight top tricks: two spades, three hearts and three clubs. And it is easy to get greedy. Some players would win with their spade ace, cash the heart ace and queen, lead a spade to dummy’s king, and cash the heart king. However, when West discards, the contract can no longer be made. Instead, South must be willing to trade one heart trick to guarantee four winners from the suit. After winning the first trick with his spade ace, he cashes the heart ace, overtakes the heart queen with dummy’s king, and continues with the heart 10 to drive out East’s jack. Now the contract sails home. © 2014 UFS

MLB ROUNDUP

Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best bet: Gilbert I

have spent the past 36 years analyzing and predicting the NFL draft from the national perspective, with no allegiance to any team ... and as such, my â&#x20AC;&#x153;draft boardâ&#x20AC;? never has included allowances for a specific teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs. That contrast has been screaming at me the past 36 hours or so, because our friends at Bleacher Report asked me for my top five choices for the Bears at No. 14 in the first round. The top five players on my overall draft board as it sits today are: 1. Jadeveon Clowney, 2. Khalil Mack, 3. Sammy Watkins, 4. Greg Robinson and 5. Anthony Barr. But there is no point in putting any of those players on my â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bears board,â&#x20AC;? because there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a snowballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chance down south that any of them will be available at 14. Six through 10 on my board are: 6. Blake Bortles, 7. Jake Matthews, 8. Kelvin Benjamin, 9. Justin Gilbert and 10. C.J. Mosley. The Bears are not in a position to consider Bortles or Benjamin, and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find a scenario in which Matthews or Mosley last to 14. Gilbert shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slide to 14, but he could. Teddy Bridgewater and Johnny Manziel almost certainly will be overdrafted, even though there is no way theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re among the 15 best prospects in this draft, and Eric Ebron, Derek Carr, Timmy Jernigan, and Aaron Donald could be taken too high as well. It also is worth noting there are miniscule differences in the grades most NFL teams and I will put on players ranked

hubARKUSH Shaw Media "EARS analyst. He can be reached at harkush@ shawmedia. com

between seven and 10, 12 and 15, etc. Gilbert shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be there for the Bears, but he could be and, if he is, I would hope the Bears would jump all over him. Their greatest need is at safety, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to argue their second greatest need is cornerback. Gilbert could step in at free safety on the first day of training camp or, better yet, the Bears could move Charles Tillman to safety and start Gilbert at corner, and strengthen their two biggest weaknesses with one pick. That is why Gilbert is No. 1 on my â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bears board.â&#x20AC;? Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Calvin Pryor are the two best pure safeties in this draft, and I have them as the 18th and 19th best prospects overall. Again, the difference in the grades I have on them and No. 12 Stephon Tuitt, No. 13 Marqise Lee, and No. 14 Taylor Lewan is miniscule. The Bears need two new starting safeties. If Gilbert, Clinton-Dix or Pryor are available at 14, they have to take one, as both the best available player and their greatest need, so Clinton-Dix and Pryor are Nos. 2 and 3. Unlike many, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe Jernigan or Donald are among the top 25 prospects in this draft.

Hubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Top 5 on Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Big Board

*USTIN'ILBERT #" Oklahoma State 2. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama 3. Calvin Pryor, SS, Louisville 4. Stephon Tuitt, DT, Notre Dame 4%%RIC%BRON 4% North Carolina

I have Tuitt at No. 4 on my â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bears board,â&#x20AC;? because he might be able to play a three-, four- or five-technique depending on where he lands. The problem is the Bears already have signed five defensive ends, and Jeremiah Ratliff, Nate Collins, and Lamarr Houston in free agency. Phil Emery has said he wants Jared Allen, Willie Young, and Houston on the field at the same time, Houstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best fit is really as a three-technique, and Allen and Young arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sliding inside. Why would you reach for Jernigan or Donald and still leave huge holes in the secondary? Tuitt is a better prospect, and at least his versatility makes sense. Eric Ebron is in the fifth slot on my â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bears board.â&#x20AC;? I know, Martellus Bennett is set at tight end. But Ebron is one of the top six or seven athletes in this draft, the Bears have zero depth behind Bennett, and what if the Bears trade down? Ebron has potential Pro Bowler written all over him. Of course Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love a Clowney, Matthews or Mosley, but realistically, Gilbert is probably the best the Bears can hope for, and Clinton-Dix or Pryor would be really nice fits.

Yankees slugger Carlos Beltran slides into second with a double as Cubs second baseman Darwin Barney applies the tag late during the first inning of Game 2 of a doubleheader Wednesday at Yankee Stadium in New York.

Michael Pineda followed an overpowering outing by Masahiro Tanaka with one of his own, pitching six innings of four-hit ball, as the Yankees followed a 3-0 win over the Cubs with a 2-0 decision on a bitterly cold Wednesday night in New York.

Newman’s Samantha Miller throws a pitch during the Comets’ game Wednesday in Milledgeville. Miller struck out 17 Missiles in 11 innings, as Newman prevailed 11-5.

Comets steal late momentum in win RALLY

CONTINUED FROM B1

“It was a big hit,” said Hurd. “Everyone was pumped up in the dugout, everyone was getting us going, and it was a lot of fun. We all backed each other up with hits, and it started a rally.” In the bottom of the seventh, Milledgeville appeared to have all the momentum, as they had runners on first and second with only one out. A foul ball that nearly hit the fence was snagged by Stevens, who was playing third base for Newman, to forestall the rally. However, Courtney Swalve came up and knocked in a run with a single to tie things up. Unfortunately for the Missiles, a baserunner got caught between second and third, and was tagged out to end the inning with the score tied at 5. “Teams go through games doing things that they don’t normally do,” said Grenoble. “Tonight was one of them, whether it was swinging at pitches over our head, errors, or bad baserunning. “They have a great group over there. If we had Sam on our side, it would have

helped a lot. She didn’t walk many girls, and her team made plays for her.” In extras, tight pitching and defense from both teams allowed the game to carry on. The Missiles got their lead runner on in the bottom of the 10th, when a bunt attempt was made. It grazed off the bat and started a line drive toward the base of the backstop fence. An alert Julie Hurd sprawled out from her catching position and ended up making the catch to halt the Milledgeville threat. The Comets made the most of that momentum, as they came back with their big inning, batting around in the frame to score six runs before it was all said and done. “We talked before the game about the conditions, and how it could be a high scoring game with how the wind blowing out as fast as it was.” said Newman coach JD Waldschmidt. “We just wanted to work on finishing the game. We talk about getting 21 outs, and today it obviously took a lot more than that. It’s awesome to see the girls battle and get the big win over a team we will see in the regional, as well.”

Newman finds rhythm at plate vs. Missiles BATS

CONTINUED FROM B1

The Comets (3-4) kept at it, and a Trevor Bolin walk was sandwiched between two outs to keep the inning alive, before Heffelfinger singled home two more with the bases loaded. “This was a good one for us,” Comets coach Tom Wilson said. “We just needed to start hitting the ball more consistently. “The approach at the plate was to not swing at the first pitch, and lay off curveballs. We just got into a rhythm.” With the lead, Coomes attacked batters in the bottom half of the fifth and got the side out in order. He was lifted after the inning, and earned the win after allowing just one hit and one run, both coming in the first inning. Milledgeville (4-1) suffered its first loss of the season, and was dealt another blow during the game. Missles starting pitcher Harrison Schmidt’s first varsity start ended quickly after pitching just two innings. The sophomore left the game after feeling soreness in his right

pitching elbow. Milledgeville coach Kyle Knutti believes that the pain is nothing serious, and pulled Schmidt as a precaution. “For it to happen in two innings isn’t very good,” Knutti said. “With this cold [weather], we wanted to be careful.” Jordan Harris took over and pitched into the fifth, but was chased after allowing six runs – three earned – in the big inning we couldn’t move past it,” the team we’re capable of, for Newman. “When something bad Knutti said. “If we’re going we’re going to have to get happens, it snowballs, and to move forward and be rid of that.”

Milledgeville’s Morgan Adolph strokes a single during the sixth inning of the Missiles’ home game Wednesday against Newman. Adolph would go on to score a run, but the Comets won 11-5 in 11 innings.
