ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT | ANCHOR COUPLING

Local plants being consolidated Sauk Valley not ruled out as new location, which will be ‘in North America’ BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5525

STERLING – Caterpillar, which owns three Anchor Coupling plants in Sterling and Dixon, plans to consolidate them into a plant somewhere in North America, a company official said Thursday.

Last week, Caterpillar announced to its 160 local employees that it was nearing completion of a yearlong consolidation study of its two operations in Sterling and one in Dixon, according to spokeswoman Rachel Potts. The Sauk Valley has not been ruled out, according to the company. “We are not in a position to disclose

the potential location of the consolidated operations, except to say that locations considered are in North America,” Potts wrote in an email. “Consolidation of operations is not a result of the performance of the workforce, but rather based on the cost structure of the three facilities.” PLANTS CONTINUED ON A4

Anchor Coupling is owned by Peoriabased Caterpillar, which reported a 5 percent first-quarter earnings increase. But declining mining equipment sales put 160 employees at three local plants in jeopardy.

A line forms at the fictitious Food-A-Rama on Thursday evening, as families line up to buy groceries during a poverty simulation at Challand Middle School in Sterling. Community Relations that Matter, part of the Whiteside Community Action Network was one of several groups that organized the role-playing event that made participants aware of the struggles of the poor.

ABOVE: Participants fill out paperwork at the welfare office. Role-players received a folder with their life stories and duties for a week. Every 15 minutes, the week would change, and events in their life would take place. RIGHT: Al Campbell (left) plays the roll of a 25-year-old single mother with two children, portrayed by Don Becker (center) and Santi Delgado. They look into their folder they find that they have no car, little money, and an autistic child.

FRANKLIN GROVE – Farms and well-kept homes line the road from the village to Franklin Creek State Park. On private property next to the park and Franklin Creek, though, are two big piles of junk and four cars, one with missing wheels. They are in a grassy area surrounded by trees. The gate is open, but two faded signs warn trespassers. Across the road is one of the park’s picnic areas. Since last month, Lee County’s zoning office has received a number of complaints about the property at 1480 Old Mill Road. It received the first one April 3, said Chris Henkel, the county’s zoning administrator. Henkel went out to see the junk piles later that day. Then he took Assistant State’s Attorney Matt Klahn. On April 4, the county sent a notice to ask the owner, Jason Parks, to clean up the mess in 15 days. The county got no response, Henkel said. DUI CONTINUED ON A2

Dixon man accused of causing death of his 3-month-old girl BY CHRISTI WARREN CWARREN SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

DIXON – Three-and-ahalf years after a Dixon man was arrested in the death of his 3-monthold daughter, his case is finally set to go trial on five criminal charges. Charles T. George, 36,

is accused of causing the death of Tamari George from a skull fracture and brain injuries in September 2010. Jury selection is set to begin June 11 in Lee County court, with a final pretrial conference to be held May 21. According to court doc-

uments, on Sept. 17, 2010, George “knowi n g l y , without lawful justificaCharles T. tion ... George slammed T.O.G. on to the floor causing skull fractures and shook T.O.G. causing severe brain injury, rib fractures

and retinal detachments which ultimately caused the death of T.O.G.� Tamari died 5 days later in a Rockford hospital. George, who was arrested on Sept. 30, 2010, is charged with four counts of aggravated battery of a child and one count of aggravated domestic battery of a child. George remained in the Lee County Jail on Wednesday on $1 million bond.

Zoning prohibits junk accumulation MESS

CONTINUED FROM A1

“We’re acting on it as fast as we can,� Henkel said. “It’s a mess, and it’s in a high-profile spot.� On May 2, the county submitted information on zoning and health code violations to Lee County Court. The property is zoned agricultural and is not permitted for accumulation of junk, according to the documents. “Lee County definitely takes zoning and health code violations seriously,� Klahn said. “We want to do whatever we can to get any problems corrected.� Earl Thomas, a former Franklin Grove resident who now lives near Nachusa Grasslands, said he was at a local cafe when he heard about the problem. “I went by and looked at it, and I was shocked,� he said. “I think this started last year, but it’s gotten worse in the winter and spring.� The mess could pose an environmental hazard to the nearby creek, Thomas said. Sauk Valley Media couldn’t find a phone number for Parks. His mailing address is the Old

Residents have complained about two junk piles on private property near Franklin Creek State Park. Lee County has gone to court to clean it up. Mill Road property. Franklin Creek State Park is a point of pride for the village. In 1970, Winifred Knox donated 100 acres of land near the creek. Through the 1970s, the Natural Land Institute bought additional properties as they became available, according to a history on the website of the state park system. In 1981, Franklin Grove residents formed the Franklin Creek Preservation Area Committee. It was the first volunteer organization in the state to improve land for park purposes through volunteer efforts, the website said. The state dedicated it as a park in 1982.

A low-key effort Man gets 6 years for drug charge by wind company Mexican citizen

I

f you live in Rock Falls, Sterling or Dixon, wind turbines are not an issue. Out in the country, the debate over wind farms is often raging. It pits neighbor against neighbor – those who want turbines to get some extra money, and those who don’t want to be anywhere near them, citing the noise, the shadow flicker, and the impact on scenery. A few months ago, Minnesota-based Geronimo Energy bought Mainstream Renewable Power’s planned wind farm, known as Green River, in Lee, Whiteside and Bureau counties. In Whiteside and Lee counties, Mainstream received permits for turbines, while Bureau County’s zoning board rejected the company’s proposal. Geronimo’s other Bureau County wind farm is Walnut Ridge, near Green River. These days, Geronimo is believed to be seeking landowners who want turbines. Opponents say 30 percent of landowners in Walnut Ridge won’t re-sign their contracts with Geronimo. And the company may be trying to resurrect Mainstream’s old Green River proposal in Bureau County. Bureau’s top zoning official, Kris Donarski, says the company plans to submit some kind of proposal in the next couple of months, but

she said she doesn’t know the details. I’ve left messages with Geronimo. No return calls. Apparently, the company wants to sign up landowners without publicity. Does it want to keep those who are getting offers from comparing notes? The Informed Farmers Coalition, largely funded by Larry and Steve Gerdes, are working to make sure everyone knows what it thinks Geronimo is up to. The group has distributed brochures and placed advertisements on the radio and in the newspaper. It is warning landowners to think things through and get a lawyer involved before signing contracts. With Geronimo’s silence, the Informed Farmers group is filling the information void. But sooner or later, the company will have to tell the world what it’s up to, if it wants a wind farm around here. Its plans have to go through zoning. And in these parts, that’s no longer the easy process it once was.

ROCKFORD – A man who was arrested on a drug trafficking charge in 1989 in Rock Falls – but fled the state before being recaptured in 2013 – was sentenced this week in

federal court in Rockford. Roberto Alvarado, 61, of Freeport, was sentenced to 6 1/2 years in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, according to a news release from the U.S. attorney’s office. U.S. District Judge Frederick Kapala ordered that Alvarado, a citizen of Mexico, be deported when he finishes his prison term. On Dec. 1, 1989, Alvarado was arrested on a charge of trying

Quinn program head now leading Emanuel’s CHICAGO (AP) – A member of Gov. Pat Quinn’s staff who helped start a 2010 anti-violence program now under federal and county investigation has become head of a new initiative to reduce Chicago violence that’s backed by major businesses and Mayor Rahm Emanuel, according to a report published Thursday. Toni Irving was a deputy chief of staff for Quinn when his Neighborhood Recovery Initiative was formed in 2010, according

to the Chicago Sun-Times. Earlier this year, a state audit chronicled pervasive problems with expenditures and management. Prosecutors from Cook County and the U.S. Department of Justice are probing the program. A legislative panel also plans to investigate. Irving now heads a program called Get In Chicago, which this week awarded $1.7 million in grants to nearly a dozen organizations. She told the newspaper

that she helped come up with the idea for Quinn’s 2010 initiative, though had no role in implementing it. The Sun-Times

cited public records that showed otherwise, including emails detailing her suggestions for who should receive grants.

The company expects to finish the study and share the results within 45 days. Potts wouldn’t say how the consolidation would affect employees’ jobs. Anchor, a wholly owned subsidiary of Caterpillar, makes hydraulic hoses and couplings. Peoria-based Caterpillar’s first-quarter earnings increased 5 percent, and the company brightened its 2014 forecast, but declining sales of mining equipment is hurting the company. Caterpillar CEO Doug Oberhelman has complained publicly that Illinois offers a poor business environment. In 2009, after Caterpillar announced it would lay off 20,000 workers worldwide, the company said it would reduce 10 percent of the local workforce, which was about 170 at the time.

SPRINGFIELD (AP) – Newly released figures that show downstate school districts gaining at the expense of suburban ones have fueled a debate among lawmakers about a proposed overhaul of the complicated school funding formula that Illinois has used for almost two decades. The state Board of Education database, released Wednesday, details the estimated impact to the state’s 860 school districts under state Sen. Andy Manar’s proposed school funding fix, perhaps the most serious effort to overhaul the state’s school funding formula since 1997. Advocates say the database more clearly illustrates how the proposal would provide equity to rich and poor districts across Illinois. Under the plan, the vast majority of total state education funding would be distributed by factoring in districts’ poverty levels. But the specifics of how much money school districts stand to gain or lose also points up the political risk for lawmakers being

asked to vote for such legislation during an election year. School districts in the Chicago and St. Louis suburbs would see major cuts to state aid, and lawmakers in vulnerable swing districts may be hesitant to anger voters. The chances for passage of the funding overhaul this spring are limited, but advocates are pushing hard to build support for it. A group of downstate school superintendents packed a news conference Thursday at the state Capitol to detail hardships their districts are enduring during tough financial times including school closings, staff and program cuts. “We don’t think we should be unduly burdened due to our poverty,� Pana District Superintendent David Lett told reporters. The legislation passed out of a Senate committee Wednesday and could be voted on in the Senate as early as next week. The proposal’s prospects in the House are slim this session, as Speaker Michael Madigan has not yet said if he will support the measure.

Police officer survived campus shooting as student BY DANIELLE GUERRA AND ANDREA AZZO dguerra@shawmedia.com and aazzo@shawmedia.com

DeKALB – Maria Christiansen always considers the worst-case scenario as a police officer at Northern Illinois University. A victim-turned-firstresponder, she’s made it her mission to make sure that what happened to her on Feb. 14, 2008, will never happen to another student at her alma mater. Christiansen, then Maria Ruiz-Santana, was a 20-year-old NIU junior with lofty goals of joining the FBI when it happened. With 10 minutes left in her oceanography class, a shooter wielding three guns barged onto the stage of the lecture hall and opened fire. Christiansen was severely wounded by a shotgun blast. “I’ve always wondered why is it that this happened to me, to my family, to my friends,� Christiansen, now 26, said. “But at the same time, things happen for a reason; that’s how I see it. Like my mom or my family tells me, there’s a reason why you’re still here. “Maybe you have something that you’re going to do in this world that’s going to make a difference; they still want you here.

definitely want to get the positive out of this.� An NIU police officer, Christiansen Maria Christiansen patrols the campus where she was wounded. She served under her rescuer, former Police Chief Donald Grady. On Sunday, she will celebrate her first Mother’s Day, as a mom to 10-month-old Alexis. More than 6 years ago, when the shooter killed five students and injured several others, Christiansen didn’t know much about weapons; she didn’t recognize the weapon in the shooter’s hand as a sawed-off shotgun. “To me, it looked like a bazooka kind of thing,� Christiansen said, discussing the shooting while on patrol at NIU. “All of a sudden, I just

myself to believe she was never going to make it.â&#x20AC;? Grady stayed with her until paramedics arrived. A helicopter would later fly her to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove. There, Christiansen and her family learned that shotgun pellets had destroyed her trachea, esophagus, and vocal chords. She underwent 5 hours of surgery that night; doctors gave her a 50 percent chance of surviving the neck reconstruction. They told her family to say their goodbyes before they began. Christiansen would be hospitalized about 2 weeks. Once she was out, she wanted back on campus, and wanted campus to be back as it was before the shooting. Within 2 months of the shooting, she was back on campus. She headed

for Cole Hall, curious to retrace the steps from a criminology standpoint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was closure,â&#x20AC;? Christiansen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I needed to move on. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to forget it, so I need to learn how to live with it.â&#x20AC;? She returned to class almost immediately, her new voice intially squeaky like a 12-year-old girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

She completed voice therapy, and on weekends when most of her classmates were busy with other extra-curriculars, Christiansen was attending police academy parttime in Princeton. She interned with NIU police during in fall 2008 and received her badge in March 2009, even before she received her degree.

Council right to turn down liquor licenses What we think Members of the Dixon City Council upheld good public policy by denying liquor licenses to gas stations that wanted to serve alcoholic drinks. Owners whose real goal is to install video gambling terminals have another recourse and should take it.

T

he Dixon City Council made the right choice this week regarding a request to allow gas station owners to be granted licenses to serve alcohol to the public. Council members unanimously said no. Good for them. The issue is a bit convoluted, as the gas station ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; desire to possess liquor licenses was merely a means to an end. They then would have qualified with the state to install and operate lucrative video gambling terminals. Mayor Jim Burke set the tone by calling it â&#x20AC;&#x153;very poor public policyâ&#x20AC;? to allow gas stations the requisite licenses to serve alcohol. Current public policy has been to increase the separation between drivers and intoxicating liquor. Drunken driving, after all, is a major contributor to traffic injuries and deaths. By allowing gas stations to serve alcoholic drinks, the distance between drivers and alcohol would shorten to a matter of feet, as well as the distance between those soon-tobe-tipsy drivers and their awaiting vehicles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fill â&#x20AC;&#x2122;er upâ&#x20AC;? might have suddenly taken on a whole new connotation. The potential increase in vehicular mayhem, thankfully, was thwarted by the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision. Commissioner David Blackburn even offered some helpful advice to gas station owners.

State statute allows video gambling terminals in places such as bars, restaurants, truck stops, and businesses with a liquor license and a pour license â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the kind of license sought by the gas station owners. A better strategy, Blackburn said, would be for the owners to approach the Illinois General Assembly directly to see whether the gaming statute could be amended to allow for video gambling terminals in plain old gas stations. After all, many gas stations already have Illinois Lottery terminals where people can buy their fill of tickets, ranging from Pick Three and Pick Four to Mega Millions and Powerball. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that much of a stretch to imagine a video gambling terminal also set up on the premises. In fact, a good argument could be made that motorists at gas stations would be appropriate customers of video gambling, as the proceeds go toward paying off bonds the state sold to pay for roads, bridges, and other infrastructure projects used by those very motorists. But linking the proposal to serving alcoholic drinks just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a good idea. As Blackburn observed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that we need to change local ordinances to turn gas stations into places that distribute alcohol.â&#x20AC;? Well said, Commissioner.

Armpit of America? State deserves better Belleville News-Democrat Editorial Board

If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Half of Illinois residents told Gallup pollsters: Not in this state. They said that if they could leave, they would. That gives Illinois the dubious distinction of being the most undesirable locale in the nation. If it were an isolated result, it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be that big a deal. But it fits right in with most other polls, surveys and rankings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on everything from the jobless rate to public pension funding to workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; comp â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that show Illinois as one of the most undesirable

spots to live and do business. Instead of being known as the Land of Lincoln, we are now the undisputed armpit of America. If finding a solution were only as simple as defining the problem. The shortsighted Democrats have a power lock on Springfield, and have gerrymandered legislative districts to protect incumbents. And so they ignore the red flags like this poll and continue to conduct business as usual without fear of getting voted out of office. ... They say people get the government they deserve, but Illinois residents deserve better than this.

Kidnapping crisis in Nigeria: U.S. should exercise caution Rising tide of terror wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easy to overcome The Kansas City Star Editorial Board

The plight of 276 teenaged girls, kidnapped April 14 from their school in northern Nigeria, has rightly captured the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention. Also being noticed is the failure of Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government to locate the girls â&#x20AC;&#x201C; eight more were reported kidnapped late Monday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or deal effectively with the perpetrators, a band of extreme Islamists who rage against the influence of nonbelievers and the West. Now the United States

is sending in a team of advisers to help with the effort. We hope that it goes well, but a rising tide of terror in oil-rich, highly divided, and notoriously corrupt Nigeria bodes poorly for stability in the region. Known as Boko Haram â&#x20AC;&#x201C; its name is loosely translated as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Western education is forbiddenâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the kidnappers have been on a tear since early last year, avenging the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s detention of about 100 of their wives and daughters.

On May 7, I helped some out-of-town visitors down by our riverfront who were trying to access the Wi-Fi, only to find out that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have access to any signal except to some bleed-over from other local businesses. So when I approached the Main Street organization and the city, I was told that they are trying to get a public system for the downtown area. But a company called T6, which is using our city towers, has reneged on a promise to supply us with coverage. So I suggest the city cut ties with T6 and spend the $20,000 or so to get Wi-Fi down to the riverfront before all the summer activities start. It would be a plus for our visitors and the people of Dixon.

NAPERVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The quiet of Naper Settlement will be broken by the sounds of battle this month during Civil War Days. The settlement is a living history museum that will mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War with a 2-day encampment of more than 300 re-enactors. The event

will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 17 and 18. At 2:30 p.m each day, a battle will be fought. The Civil War is not new to the staff of Naper Settlement. The encampment has been part of its season for more than 25 years. Of particular interest is Sutlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Row, where visitors will be able to purchase reproduction products of the era. To put a modern twist on a visit, look into the world of geocaching, available through October. Geocaching is a game of treasure hunting outside with a global

positioning system. It involves the location of a container that has a logbook and â&#x20AC;&#x153;treasureâ&#x20AC;? of very little value. Guests who are interested in the hunt may pick up a geocache sheet and rent a hand-held GPS for $1 a unit at the lobby desk. Personal GPS

devices are welcome. Another option is the OnCell Tour. Visitors can use their phones to guide them throughout the stops of the settlement. The tour is available at www.napersettlement. com. For the more traditional tour of Naper Settlement,

guests will find 19 locations to explore from the Pre-Emption House to the Carriage House. Also on the list are the Paw Paw Post Office, which is Napervilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first post office; the Copenhagen Schoolhouse as it appeared in 1870; and the Murray House, built in 1842. While the settlement doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have on-site food services, picnic tables are available. City restaurants are nearby, as Napervilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown district is within walking distance of the museum. Those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind

IN BRIEF CW cancels three freshman series LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It looks like tomorrow wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come for â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Tomorrow Peopleâ&#x20AC;? on the CW. The network has canceled the freshman drama, along with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star-Crossedâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Carrie Diaries.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Tomorrow People,â&#x20AC;? a remake of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s sci-fi drama about a group of paranormal humans fighting for survival, struggled to impress on the ratings front, despite the first half of its season benefiting

from an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arrowâ&#x20AC;? lead-in. The series from executive producers Julie Plec (â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Vampire Diaries,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Originalsâ&#x20AC;?) and Greg Berlanti (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arrowâ&#x20AC;?), averaged a 0.6 in the 18-49 demo and 1.5 million total viewers. The series was moved to Mondays the second half of its run, paired with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star-Crossed.â&#x20AC;? The lovestruck story about a group of aliens integrating with humans whimpered in the ratings with a 0.3 rating in the young adults demo. Meanwhile, sophomore

Husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absence gives taste of freedom from abuse Dear Abby, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a 27-year-old woman trapped in a loveless marriage. My husband is a few years younger, and very codependent. Before he dated me, he had never had a girlfriend or a sexual encounter. I came into the relationship with a child and some trust/fear issues, because my ex had abused me. My husband has now become verbally, sexually and to a lesser degree, physically abusive, to the point of striking my 5-year-old son. I threw him out for that, but caved to pressure from my family to take him back. They think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a â&#x20AC;&#x153;stabilizingâ&#x20AC;? influence in

my life. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about, or canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grasp, his abuse or the abuse I survived previously. If I hint at it, they accuse me of â&#x20AC;&#x153;lying for attention.â&#x20AC;? My husband has left for basic training with the Army and will be gone for a few months. I already feel freer, lighter

and more able to cope with things. If I leave him while heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s away, the social and family repercussions will be devastating. My son and I may be forced to relocate. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m torn and afraid. I went through with the marriage only to please my family, as the abuse started before the wedding. It has been a year and a half, and all I can think about is getting out. Help me, please. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Canadian Reader Dear Reader, Of course I will help. Deciding to leave an abusive partner can be wrenching as well as frightening. However, because abuse tends

to escalate, it is what you must do. Yours and your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety could depend on it. It is shameful that your family isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t supportive, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let that stop you. Relocate, if you must. You need to form an escape plan. The way to do that is to call the National Domestic Violence Hotline. The phone number is 800-799-7233. Counselors there can refer you to help in your area â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they have done this for other Canadian women. They also offer education and empowerment programs so that victims will be less likely to be sweet-talked by their abusers into returning for more punishment.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to reach out because your sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s physical and emotional health depend on it. If not for yourself, do it for him. Dear Abby, I have a friend who lives a few states away. We talk on the phone every week. Either she calls me, or I call her. Every time she calls me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when she is driving somewhere. As soon as she arrives at her destination or pulls up in her driveway, she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m home [here] now. Gotta go!â&#x20AC;? and hangs up. This has been going on for years. I stay on the phone all the time she rambles on and never cut her short. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really start-

ing to get to me. What should I do? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fuming in Florida Dear Fuming, If this has been happening â&#x20AC;&#x153;for yearsâ&#x20AC;? and you are just now writing me about it, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d call that one slow burn. Pick up the phone, call your friend and tell her exactly how you feel about it. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll continue doing what she has been doing, because she thinks itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all right with you.

LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Universal Picturesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; $18 million â&#x20AC;&#x153;Neighborsâ&#x20AC;? is expected to gross $35 million or more in ticket sales through Sunday in the United States and Canada, according to people who have seen prerelease audience surveys, though the studio says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s projecting a softer debut of $25 million-plus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Amazing SpiderMan 2,â&#x20AC;? the sequel to the 2012 franchise reboot starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, could haul in an additional $37 million to $40 million Friday through Sunday if it drops by about 55 percent to 60 percent from its $91.6 million debut last weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Neighbors,â&#x20AC;? the first R-rated comedy of the summer movie season, stars Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne as new parents who find themselves living next door to a raucous fraternity, led by a young alphamale played by Zac Efron. A $35 million opening would surpass the kickoff of last summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rogen-starring apocalyptic laugh-fest â&#x20AC;&#x153;This Is the End,â&#x20AC;? which launched with $20.7 million in its first 3 days against the first weekend of Warner Bros.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; superhero film â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man of Steel.â&#x20AC;?

Critical praise could help propel â&#x20AC;&#x153;Neighbors,â&#x20AC;? as reviews have been generally positive, indicated by a score of around 80 percent â&#x20AC;&#x153;freshâ&#x20AC;? on Rotten Tomatoes as of Thursday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Neighborsâ&#x20AC;? marks the screenwriting debut of Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien and is the fourth comedy directed by Nick Stoller for Universal, coming after the â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Five-Year Engagement,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get Him to the Greekâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;For-

Also opening this weekend is Summertime Entertainmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $70 million 3-D animated musical â&#x20AC;&#x153;Legends of Oz: Dorothyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Return,â&#x20AC;? which features vocal talent including Lea Michele, Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer and Martin Short. Distributed in the U.S. by Clarius Entertainment and based on the books by Roger Stanton Baum, the great-grandson of L. Frank Baum, the film is expected to generate $12 million in ticket sales through Sunday. TriStar Picturesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; PGrated comedy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Momsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Night Outâ&#x20AC;? is poised for an opening of $5 million or less in 1,044 theaters.

College retirement board OKs pension fix Move ends several weeks of concern CHAMPAIGN (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The board of the State Universities Retirement System voted Thursday to accept an interpretation of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statepension reform law that says the law wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t inadvertently cut university retireesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pensions. The unanimous vote in Chicago by the SURS boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive com-

mittee ends several weeks of concern raised by SURS and Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; public universities that the equivalent of a typo in the law would sharply cut many university pensions. They worried that would add to the incentive that pension reform is already giving many university and community college employees to retire early. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy to be able to go this route to help our members,â&#x20AC;? SURS spokeswoman Beth Spencer said.

University of Illinois spokesman Jan Dennis said the university agrees that Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote resolves the problem with the lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s language. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are pleased that this has been resolved and hope this provides some assurance to our employees,â&#x20AC;? he said. Public universities and community colleges fear they will lose many employees to the pension-reform law, which was passed last year to

help the state deal with a $100 billion shortfall in funding state retirement benefits. It cut cost-of-living increases for retirees and capped the amount of earnings that can be applied toward pensions, leading many to consider leaving before the law takes effect June 1. The language glitch threatened to push even more out of the door, the schools and SURS said. Lawmakers agree the wording was a mistake.

UKRAINE

But last week, House Speaker Michael Madigan pointed out to SURS and the schools that other public-employee pension systems in the state have interpreted the new law based on its intent, excluding the mistake. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s based on a state Supreme Court decision from 1986 that requires that when pensionrelated law is ambiguous, it â&#x20AC;&#x153;must be liberally construed in favor of the rights of the pensioner.â&#x20AC;?

Earlier this week, SURS Executive Director William Mabe said he agreed. At least two pieces of legislation were filed last week to change the language in the law as well. The lawmakers behind the separate pieces of legislation, state Sen. Chapin Rose and state Rep. Chad Hays, have both said they could still push to see them passed.

Ignoring Putin, insurgents to hold vote Twisters rouse Country remains interest in shelters perilously polarized DONETSK, Ukraine (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In an obscure government office guarded by a man in a red T-shirt armed only with a stick, two photocopy machines churned out ballots Thursday for eastern Ukraineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s referendum on secession, as they have been doing around the clock for days. In apparent defiance of a call by Russian President Vladimir Putin to put off the vote, insurgents in eastern Ukraine insisted Thursday they will go ahead with this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s referendum as planned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Putin is seeking a way out of the situation. We are grateful to him for this,â&#x20AC;? said Denis Pushilin, co-chairman of the Donetsk Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Republic, as the pro-Russian rebels call themselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we are just a bullhorn for the people,â&#x20AC;? he declared. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just voice what the people want.â&#x20AC;? Ukraine has in recent weeks grown perilously polarized, with the west looking toward Europe and the east favoring closer ties with Russia. Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pronouncement was likely to further inflame tensions between the interim government in Kiev that took power amid chaos in February and the armed insurgents, who have seized police stations and government buildings in more than a dozen cities in the east.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tornado season wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the worst in Oklahoma history, neither in the number of twisters nor the number of lives taken. But the deadly barrage that killed more than 30 people scared Oklahomans in a way that previous storms had not, moving them to add tornado shelters or reinforced safe rooms to their homes. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just one problem: The surge of interest in tornado safety has overwhelmed companies that build the shelters, creating long waiting lists and forcing many people to endure the most dangerous part of this season without any added protection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pretty much anywhere you go right now, the soonest anyone can install is about midJune,â&#x20AC;? said Kayli Phillips, who works in sales and accounting at Norman-based Thunderground Storm Shelters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re booked solid until then.â&#x20AC;? Thunderground, which opened about 2 years ago, is part of a booming new industry that has taken shape as more Americans seek to shield their families from severe weather. The demand intensified last year, following the series of deadly twisters

in central Oklahoma, where a single tornado on May 20, 2013, killed 24 people and destroyed 1,100 homes in Moore. Since then, Moore residents have added about 1,100 basements or shelters, according to city spokeswoman Deidre Ebrey. In all, the city has an estimated 6,000 shelters or basements. In nearby Oklahoma City, more than 8,000 storm shelter permits have been issued since May 2013, according to Kristy Yager, a spokeswoman for Oklahoma City. In 2009, just 322 permits were issued. The 2013 tornadoes â&#x20AC;&#x153;pretty much kept us booked up the entire year,â&#x20AC;? Phillips said. Abby Brown, a sales manager for Edmond, Oklahoma-based GFS Storm Shelters, said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a waiting list for installations, but it generally peaks starting in March, when people begin thinking about the upcoming storm season. The company, which has been in business for 4 years, installs about 175 shelters a month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are thinking about it more. People who have lived in Oklahoma all their lives sometimes may not have ever thought that they needed a storm shelter until last year,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Putin to face Western leaders at D-Day anniversary WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Complicating the Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to isolate Russia, the Kremlin announced Thursday that Vladimir Putin will join President Barack Obama and European leaders in France next month for a ceremony marking the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion that hastened the end of World War II. The June 6 commemoration would mark the first time Putin and Western leaders have come face-to-face since the outbreak of the crisis in Ukraine. The U.S. and Europe have condemned Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provocations, ordering sanctions on Putinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inner circle and cutting Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ties to some international organizations. Still, leaders from Germany and France publicly welcomed Putinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to attend the observance at Normandy, raising questions about the effectiveness of recent efforts to ostracize the Russian president over Ukraine. And while the White House said Obama would not meet one-onone with Putin, U.S. officials did not appear to be seeking to stop him from attending. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would not expect France to dis-invite Russia from this historic event commemorating

World War II because of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking place in Ukraine,â&#x20AC;? White House spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The events in Normandy on June 6 are focused on remembering the sacrifices of all our World War II veterans.â&#x20AC;? Millions of Russian lives were lost in the war against Nazi Germany. Yet Putinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presence is sure to intrude on, if not overshadow, the commemorations of the Normandy landings by allied forces. Even without a formal meeting between Putin and Western leaders, there will be heightened interest in their interactions, particularly between Obama and Putin, who have a history of tense public encounters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this goes forward, this is not going to be about Normandy and the second world war,â&#x20AC;? said Heather Conley, a Europe

scholar at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just going to be watching the body language.â&#x20AC;? International gatherings like the D-Day anniversary are often occasions where world leaders find themselves in the presence of their foes. Obama

shook hands with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez at a regional summit in 2009. He also exchanged a handshake and brief pleasantries with Cuban leader Raul Castro last year while both attended a memorial service in South Africa for Nelson Mandela.

Luck can shift and help gain contract

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Don Marquis, a humorist and journalist, wrote, “Now and then there is a person born who is so unlucky that he runs into accidents which started out to happen to somebody else.” That, of course, does not apply at the bridge table. Usually only one side can be unlucky. However, sometimes when a deal starts out in an unlucky way, the contract might still be makable if declarer can get lucky in another suit – as in this deal. South bounces himself into six spades. After West leads the diamond queen, what should declarer do? North made a game-invitational limit raise, guaranteeing at least four spades, 10-12 support points (high-card

points plus short-suit points) and eight losers. (You look at only the first three cards of each suit when counting losers.) Yes, with those potentially useless heart honors

and no aces, that North hand is borderline, but it is clearly too strong for only a single raise. South starts with potential losers in both black suits. So, after winning the first trick with his diamond ace (the honor from the shorter side first), he cashes his spade ace, but unluckily the king does not drop. Is there any chance now? Yes, there is one faint hope: that the defender with the spade king has at most two clubs. Declarer should cash his two club and two heart winners, play a diamond to dummy’s king, ruff the last diamond in his hand, and exit with a trump. His luck is in. West must now concede a ruff-and-sluff. South ruffs on the board and sluffs his last club. © 2014 UFS

Being a Saint Do you expect to become a Saint? Perhaps you should. Have you ever noticed that just about every person in the Bible who is chosen by God for some important mission balks at the idea? It almost seems as if it is â&#x20AC;&#x153;bad formâ&#x20AC;? to be too ready and willing to be Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standardbearer. Moses was full of excuses for why he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mouthpiece, chief among them that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak well.Young Samuel thought he was hearing his master Eliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice when he was really hearing the voice of God. And, even Jesus appeared to have His moment of doubt, asking His heavenly Father to â&#x20AC;&#x153;remove this cup from meâ&#x20AC;? in the garden at Gethsemane (Mark 14: 36).The life of a WEMRXP] TIVWSR MW PMOIP] XS FI QSVI ½PPIH [MXL HSYFXW XLER that of the ordinary man or woman, not less. Perhaps that is because so much more is asked of the saintly man and woman. How could one fail to be doubtful when facing such fearful circumstances as martyrdom?

Burger King plans to offer burgers on breakfast menu Company hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t said whether it is permanent move NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Burger King has some new additions to its breakfast menu â&#x20AC;&#x201C; its flame-broiled burgers. The Miami-based chain says its â&#x20AC;&#x153;Burgers at Breakfastâ&#x20AC;? menu includes its Whoppers, Cheeseburgers and Big King sandwiches, as well as its Original Chicken Sandwich, french fries and apple pie. The items are offered alongside the chainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s normal breakfast menu. Burger King Worldwide Inc. said in an email that more than 5,000 locations will participate in the program. The company said

it began rolling out earlier this month, but did not say whether it would be available permanently or for a limited time. The rollout was reported earlier Thursday by the website BurgerBusiness.com. Burger Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move comes as fast-food chains look to tap into the growing breakfast category. Most notably, Taco Bell recently launched its national breakfast menu by poking fun at McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in TV ads. But finding success in the morning isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily easy for new players. Wendyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Co., for instance, recently gave up on testing breakfast and says it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan to pursue it again anytime soon. In a phone interview,

Wendyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CEO Emil Brolick noted that people tend to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;entrenchedâ&#x20AC;? in their morning habits and that they seem â&#x20AC;&#x153;pretty happy with the offerings they have in the marketplace.â&#x20AC;? McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, meanwhile, remains the leader in breakfast with its popular Egg McMuffins, Hot Cakes and other items. Fans of McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breakfast have long wanted it to be available beyond normal breakfast hours, and executives have tinkered with some options. Last year, the chain began offering an â&#x20AC;&#x153;After Midnightâ&#x20AC;? menu at some locations that includes a mix of breakfast and lunch items, with the option to get either fries or hash browns as a side.

Bears select Fuller at No. 14 Pass on safeties Pryor, Dix for versatile cornerback from Virginia Tech BY KEVIN FISHBAIN Shaw Media

LAKE FOREST – For the first time since 1996, the Bears selected a cornerback in the first round of the draft. With their 14th pick, the Bears drafted Virginia Tech’s Kyle Fuller, a 6-0, 190-pound corner with a 4.49 40-yard dash and a 38.5-inch vertical leap. “Extremely happy to have Kyle Fuller be a new Bear. This is a

player that is universally loved in our building,” said general manager Phil Emery. “Very high-level grade on him at corner.” Fuller had only 12 Kyle reps on the bench Fuller press, but he is considered a hardworking, physical corner with the length to potentially play safety as well.

“I was at a game, live, that I got to watch Kyle. I knew that day that’s the type of player I wanted to represent the Chicago Bears,” Emery said. “He was playing Georgia Tech that day, and they line him up as an inverted safety and ran him through the A-gap against an option team to crash the mesh point between the quarterback and fullback, and he repetitively did that.” FULLER CONTINUED ON B2

Fuller file School: Virginia Tech Position: Cornerback Height: 6-0 Weight: 190 40-yard dash: 4.49 Scouting report: Good size and speed to go with excellent bloodlines. His brothers, Vincent and Cory, both have played in NFL. More than happy to help against run. Michael Krabbenhoeft/ mkrabbenhoeft@saukvalley.com

Long-term success

Live bats Oregon senior stars in meet delayed three times arrive in Rock Falls BY TY REYNOLDS treynolds@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5554

Offense breaks out of recent slump

ROCK FALLS – The Oregon Hawks were flying in rarefied air all evening long at the Big Northern girls track meet … and they more than held their own. The Hawks led most of the way, only to see Burlington Central pass them up in the final event for the Rockets’ 10th conference championship in 11 years. But that didn’t dampen the mood in the Oregon huddle as the final scores were announced. The Hawks’ cheers echoed off the empty Hinders Field bleachers longer than the Rockets’ celebration of the victory. “You’re always more proud of your team, happier for your teammates than for yourself,” said junior Sarah Lauer, one of three Hawks to score at least 18 points by herself. “It means just as much to us to finish second as a team as it does for any of us to win individual events.”

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

ROCK FALLS – After a half inning, the Rock Falls Rockets baseball team was staring at 2-0 deficit to the Mendota Trojans. The need to worry didn’t last long. The Rockets scored six runs in the bottom of the inning, before cruising to a 14-4 win in six innings. “We’ve come out flat the last couple of games and not played well,” Rock Falls coach Donnie Chappell said. “Today, we had life and energy, and seemed to swing the bats a little better, which is the main thing.” Rock Falls (13-9, 5-5 BNC) hit the ball well early, setting the tone.

STERLING – Dixon baseball coach Sam Gallucci has been coaching high school baseball for 17 seasons, and has seen just about everything – until Thursday. Dixon and Sterling entered Thursday’s Northern Illinois Big 12 West game with identical Philip Marruffo/pmarruffo@saukvalley.com records, and after 2 hours of play, Dixon’s Angelo Valdes throws out Sterling’s Quinten Borum on a the two teams left Gartner Park grounder Thursday at Gartner Park.

Within seconds of Morse’s fastball popping in catcher Zach Rehmert’s mitt for a high strike, thunder rumbled, forcing the umpires to take action.

The Houston Texans selected South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney with the first pick of the 2014 NFL draft. It was the expected start to what turned into a surprising first round of picks.

No Clowney around Texans take DE from South Carolina with first pick BY BARRY WILNER !00RO&OOTBALL7RITER

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; For nearly 3 years, Jadeveon Clowney couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to get to the NFL, and the league was just as eager to add the player some called the best defensive prospect in a decade. No surprise: Clowney is the Texansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; man. But Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first pick of the 2014 NFL draft didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come without some intrigue about how it would all turn out. There had been criticism of Clowneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work ethic last season, and questions about whether the Texans would hold or trade the No. 1 slot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just been proving a lot of people wrong throughout my life,â&#x20AC;? Clowney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Growing up, I grew up hard. I always said Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do something great. Hopefully, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be a Hall of Famer one day.â&#x20AC;? Houston will take that. This draftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other big name, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, sat with a sullen look on his face until Cleveland made its third trade of the round and grabbed the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner at No. 22. To rousing cheers and chants of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Johnny, Johnny,â&#x20AC;? Manziel smiled widely as he walked onto the Radio City Music Hall stage. Manzielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wait added plenty of intrigue nearly 3 hours after the Texans took their time selecting Clowney. Rarely does a team not reveal the top overall choice until it is announced, and there was wide speculation the Texans had soured on the defensive end, whose junior season at South Carolina was accompanied by criticism he played it safe to stay healthy for the pros. After Commissioner Roger Goodell announced the pick, fans filling Radio City Music Hall to capacity applauded Clowney as he held up his index finger, his eyes moist, a relieved look on his face. Just like the 30 prospects on hand, the fans were extra eager to see who would wind up where after the draft was pushed back from late April because the theater was unavailable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long time. It just kicked in at the end there, man, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been drafted,â&#x20AC;? he said. Clowney, 21, brings size, speed and power to a lineup that already has 2012 NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt. His diligence had been questioned after he slipped from 13 sacks to just three in 2013. Critics said he was protecting himself from injury in his junior year before declaring early for the draft. He is the first defensive player taken first overall since Houston selected another end, Mario Williams, in 2006. Williams now is with Buffalo. Houston also made the top pick in its first season, 2002, taking quarterback David Carr. He never lived up to

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is one tough football player,â&#x20AC;? Emery said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a player with length, skill, athleticism, versatility, productivity and, beyond that, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even a great person. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great representative of the Chicago Bears.â&#x20AC;? On a conference call with reporters, Fuller said the Bears havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t told him exactly what he would play, but that he has the versatility to play nickel, corner or safety.

Emery said that Fuller is a cornerback. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how we see him.â&#x20AC;? Emery lauded Fullerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tackling abilities, and how he tackles in run support, especially for a 190-pound player. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Definitely being a tough, physical player,â&#x20AC;? Fuller said about his strengths. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a good knowledge of the game.â&#x20AC;? As for Fullerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position versatility, Emery focused on what Fuller could do for the Bears in coverage from corner, as opposed to what he could potentially do at safety.

that billing; the Texans hope Clowney has more of an impact. Tackle Greg Robinson, whose blocking helped high-powered Auburn make the national championship game last season, went second to St. Louis. The Rams owned the pick as the final payment for a 2012 trade with Washington that allowed the Redskins to draft quarterback Robert Griffin III. St. Louis is concerned about the health of starting left tackle Jake Long, who is coming off knee surgery. The first quarterback to go went to Jacksonville in the third slot, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Johnny Football. Blake Bortles of Central Florida, whose stock shot up last season and in subsequent workouts. At 6-5, 232, Bortles drew comparisons to Ben Roethlisberger because of his combination of size and mobility. Jacksonville missed the last time it took a QB in the first round, Blaine Gabbert in 2011. The Jaguars gave up on the inconsistent Gabbert, who struggled to read defenses and was benched for journeyman Chad Henne. Gabbert is now a backup in San Francisco.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see him as a guy that has a lot of versatility in terms of coverage, in terms of covering different types of athletes. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where his length really helps him,â&#x20AC;? Emery said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could see him on tape covering the North Carolina tight end [Eric] Ebron. You see him cover inside slots or bigger receivers, you see him cover outside. That versatility of coverage is a big attraction for Kyle.â&#x20AC;? Emery said the Bears expect Fuller to contribute in his rookie season, and pointed out all the

multiple-wide receiver and tight end sets that Fuller could find his way on the field often, and that he could eventually be a starter on the outside. Fuller, whose brothers Corey and Vincent have NFL experience, knows the type of corners he will be playing with by joining the Bears. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings are two Pro Bowl corners,â&#x20AC;? Fuller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m definitely looking forward to coming in and learning from those guys.â&#x20AC;?

Mellott hits game-winner for Sterling "Y36-3PORTS3TAFF

There were five lead changes in Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s softball game between Sterling and LaSalle-Peru, and Karlie Mellott made sure there would be no more. Mellott won the game for the Golden Warriors with a walk-off home run in the bottom of the seventh to give Sterling a 7-6 win over visiting LaSalle-Peru. The Golden Warriors allowed two runs in the top of the seventh as LaSalle-Peru tied the score at 6-6, before Mellottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game-winning hit in the bottom of the frame. She finished 2-for-3 with two runs scored and an RBI. Darien Bardoner also went 2-for-3 and collected two RBIs, while teammate Emily McDonald went 1-for-3. Her hit was a tworun home run.

Warriors rally with two runs in seventh CRASHES

CONTINUED FROM B1

The storm looked fastmoving, and the players expected to finish the game, but Gallucci and Golden Warriors coach Nick Pepper met with umpires on the infield and checked weather projections before deciding to end the game. It will not be made up. There is a rule that allows conference games to end in a tie, though it is rare. Scheduling conflicts, which have cropped up due to other rainouts earlier in the season, have made finding a time to restart Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game difficult. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It does feel weird,â&#x20AC;? Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brandon Dennis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dixon. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only 15 minutes away. Its tough to leave without finishing this.â&#x20AC;? Dennis did his best to finish the game, however, as he played a crucial role the bottom of the seventh. The Golden Warriors (5-14-1) trailed 2-0 since the first inning, but put together a rally. Keegan Wellman, pinch-hitting for Esteban Sosa, led off the bottom of the seventh with a single to right field. Quinten Borum popped up to the pitcher for the first out before Rehmert singled through the left side. With two runners on, Frankie Perino singled home Wellman to cut the deficit to 2-1, and moved Rehmert to third. Dennis was then tasked with a suicide squeeze bunt. He took a low and outside pitch and bunted it down the first-base line to bring home the tying run. Perino was thrown out trying to reach third after the run scored to send the game into extra innings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a little nervous,â&#x20AC;? Pepper said of calling

for a bunt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dennis did a great job and got it down. Unfortunately, we made some baserunning miscues at the end, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud we fought and got those two runs to send it into extras.â&#x20AC;? Sterling made several baserunning errors throughout the game, including having two runners thrown out at home. Pepper attributed the miscues on the basepaths to an aggressive approach only being down two runs.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind being aggressive,â&#x20AC;? Pepper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we wanted to do. Sometimes we have to be smarter, but aggressiveness doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother me.â&#x20AC;? Dixon scored two runs in the first inning, as Connor Sperling hit an RBI sacrifice fly to score Angelo Valdes, and A.J. Murdock doubled home Cal Jarrett two batters later. It was all the Dukes (5-14-1) would get, as Morse settled in and allowed just one hit the

rest of the way. He finished with 11 strikeouts and walked none, while giving up four hits in seven innings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and one pitch in the eighth. Dixon starter Mitchel Wolfe was similarly dominant, going seven innings while scattering eight hits and striking out five. But no matter how well either team played, they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beat the weather. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, a tie isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what we want,â&#x20AC;? Pepper said.

The Duchesses allowed Geneseo to rack up 10 runs in the top of the fifth inning, which put the game out of reach for Dixon. The Duchesses had a 2-0 lead after the second inning. Brooke Bailey batted in the only two runs for the Duchesses, and teammates Erin Smith and Emily Bay were the only other Dixon batters who recorded a hit. Beccah Jones took the loss in the circle, as she gave up 10 earned runs on seven hits and issued four walks.

Morrison wins two in Manlius: The Fillies

The Rockets had seven hits in the first inning alone. All six of the runs that scored came on RBIs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Offensively this year, we have been a great ball club,â&#x20AC;? Mendota coach Aaron Sester said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our kids did a good job, coming out and grabbing a 2-0 lead early. We had a few misjudged balls in the first, and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that against good teams. Rock Falls is one of those teams and programs, and they made us pay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think our kids could have been in the ballgame had they not given up six runs in the first.â&#x20AC;? After the first, the Rockets piled it on, picking up a pair of runs in the second and fourth innings, sandwiched around a run in the third. Cayden Erickson was key at the plate. He drove in four runs, and scored four times. He also went 4-for-4, and was a triple shy of the cycle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost two games in a row,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the first game against Mendota, we kind of had a bad day and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t swing the bats at all. We just got sick of losing and had to get back on it, so we can get a win streak going.â&#x20AC;? Although he tried to get the cycle in his final

at-bat, Erickson instead â&#x20AC;&#x153;accidentallyâ&#x20AC;? hit a solo home run in the bottom of the sixth to spark the three runs the Rockets needed to 10-run the Trojans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going for another home run,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was going for the cycle, and I needed a triple. As soon as I hit it, I knew it was going over the fence. It was just one of those hits. I got two home runs under my belt today, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still pretty happy about that.â&#x20AC;? Freshman James McFadden went six innings to pick up the win. All four Trojan runs were earned, on eight hits. McFadden also

struck out eight and walked one batter. Mendotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shane Kruse hit a solo home run well over the fence in the fourth. McFadden kept cool, calm and collected, as he proceeded to strike out six of the last nine Mendota batters that he faced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I knew why we swung the bats this well, our record would be a lot better,â&#x20AC;? said Chappell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seemed focused lately, so I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of a mental thing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We definitely have the talent to do something well in the postseason, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m running out of pep talks, so hopefully we figure it out.â&#x20AC;?

MLB | CUBS 12, WHITE SOX 5

SUCCESS

White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez (right) is unable to complete the double play after forcing out the Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Junior Lake (21) at second during Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game at U.S. Cellular Field. The Cubs won 12-5.

Cubs snap skid vs. Sox Offensive explosion caps series rookie slugger Jose Abreu appeared to be playing through some sort of leg injury. Abreu, who is off to a terrific start with 12 homers and 35 RBIs, hobbled down the line each time he put the ball in play. The Cubs jumped on Scott Carroll (1-2) for four runs in the third, sending 10 batters to the plate. Luis Valbuena singled in Kalish before Rizzo hit a drive to center for his seventh homer. Lake added a bases-loaded walk to make it 4-2. Rizzo also walked and scored when Castro connected in the fourth. Castro went 1-for-15 with two walks during the Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; losing streak. Carroll departed after Olt and Lake started the fifth with consecutive singles. The 29-year-old rookie was charged with 11 hits and six runs after he pitched well in each of his first two major-league starts. The White Sox got two runs back in the fourth on RBI singles by Gillaspie and Tyler Flowers. But five Cubs relievers combined for five innings of one-run ball after Jake Arrietaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shaky outing. Brian Schlitter (2-0) got five outs for the win. Arrieta allowed four runs, three earned, and nine hits in four innings.

CHICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Anthony Rizzo, Starlin Castro and Mike Olt homered, and the Chicago Cubs stopped a four-game slide with a 12-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night at U.S. Cellular Field. Rizzo had three hits and scored three times as the Cubs salvaged the finale of the city series. Olt, Ryan Kalish, Nate Schierholtz and Junior Lake had two hits apiece in a game that took 4 hours, 7 minutes. The Cubs put it away with five runs in the eighth, highlighted by Oltâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first career grand slam. Maikel Cleto also hit Welington Castillo with a pitch with the bases loaded, ending the White Sox bullpenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shutout streak at 23 1/3 innings. The Cubs finished with 15 hits after managing just five runs and 12 hits in the first three games against the White Sox. Alexei Ramirez had four singles for the White Sox, who had won four in a row. Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-4 with a walk in his first action since he was activated from the disabled list Wednesday after being sidelined with a bruised left hand. The White Sox got Adam Dunn back after he missed a game due to a bruised right calf, but

Burlington Central finished with 91 points, six more than Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 85. Byron was third with 69, with Marengo right behind in fourth (68). Rock Falls finished ninth (30 points). Hawks senior Cydney Long was the star of the meet, winning the 100 hurdles and placing third in the 200 (27.17 seconds), 300 hurdles (47.92) and long jump (15 feet, 6 1/2 inches). The 28 points tallied for those four finishes topped the next-best individual point scorers by eight points. The 100 hurdles also made for the most dramatic finish of the night. She avenged a recent loss to Burlington Centralâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bryce Weinrich, blazing to a time of 14.98 seconds to edge Weinrich by twohundredths of a second. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was one hell of a race,â&#x20AC;? Long said, smiling as Weinrich offered her a hug. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got third to her and another girl at a meet in Ottawa, and I told myself before the race today, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You got this.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It was definitely a confidence-builder for the rest of the night.â&#x20AC;? Wienrich was on Longâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right hip the entire race, with both girls making a clean run. As they cleared the final hurdle, Long followed her coachesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; advice and turned on whatever afterburners she had left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The coaches always yell, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Digâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; when someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close and I need to go faster,â&#x20AC;? Long said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said it way more than a couple of times during that race, and I knew I had to just go for it.â&#x20AC;? Teammates Shannon Cullen and Lauer tied for fifth individually with 18 points apiece. Cullen won the shot put (374½) and took second in discus (107-9½), while Lauer won the triple jump (33-1½) and was runner-up in the long jump (15-7½), just ahead of Long. Cullen and Kelsey Pudlas started the meet off strong for Oregon, as Pudlas added a win in the pole vault (9-6) to Cullenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory in the shot put. Those were the first two events to be announced, with both

The Rockets placed ninth as a team. getting in before the longest of the three weather delays. Cullen had mixed emotions on the night, as the senior was thrilled to win the shot put but a bit disappointed to not win the discus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy, glad I finally threw closer to my full potential in the shot put, which I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been doing lately,â&#x20AC;? Cullen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I threw two 37s, so I was proud of that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The discus, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a little mad I got second, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy for the girl who won [Winnebagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Allison Klosinski]. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been at four meets together already this year, and every time I always seem to beat her by just a little bit. I guess second is all right, when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the one who won it.â&#x20AC;? Lauer was ecstatic about winning the triple jump. After finishing fifth in each of the last 2 years at the BNC Meet, the junior won the title this time around by 12½ feet. Her second in the long jump was just icing on

the cake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going for first, I just wanted to improve from fifth,â&#x20AC;? Lauer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just focused on warming up between jumps, and not letting the weather delays bother me. I just kept my legs loose and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry about anything but my jumps.â&#x20AC;? The weather wreaked havoc with everyone, but especially the 800 runners. The longest delay came around 5:35 p.m., when lightning was spotted in the distance; soon after the athletes returned to the field, around 6:15 p.m., a second storm cell moved in and forced another delay. In all, those two delays lasted nearly 2 hours. Even worse, they forced the stoppage of the 3,200 relay in mid-race, after the first two legs had already completed their 800s. Still, it accounted for Rock Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best finish of the meet, in second place with a time of 10:06.31, 1.15 seconds behind winner Harvard. But it took a lot out of junior Dallas Clevenger, who was one of the pre-race favorites in the open 800 and 400. She took third in the 800 (2:31.26), and faded to a non-scoring eighth in the 400 (1:06.07) a few events later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was awful; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even really like the 800, and I had to run it three times tonight,â&#x20AC;? Clevenger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Running that leadoff leg twice was the worst, and it took the

most out of me mentally, because you just know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be dying by the end of it the second time, then the third time [in the open 800] especially. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually, the last stretch of the race is where I do the best, really catch up at the end. But I had almost nothing left in the 800, and even less in the 400; I was crying before the 400, because I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really want to run it, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad the coaches made me do it, because that will just make me tougher for sectionals next week.â&#x20AC;? Bailie Smith, Makaley Velazquez and Katie Anderson joined Clevenger in the 3,200 relay. The Rockets also got a fourth from Michaela Busch in the high jump (4-10), and fifths from Velazquez in the 1,600 (5:36.83), Sydney Arickx in the 200 (27.82), Emma Miller in the 100 hurdles ( 17.19), and Molly Mammosser in the long jump (15-0). Mackenzie Skoumal added a fourth for Oregon in the 400 (1:03.17), while Karissa Corbin was fifth in the shot put (32-9 1/2) and Whitney Long was fifth in the high jump (4-10). There was one BNC Meet record broken Thursday, as Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kelsey Hildreth ran the 3,200 in 10:35.95 to top the old record set in 2008. Hildreth also won the 1,600 (5:13.37), missing the meet record by 2 seconds.

TELEGRAPH

Previous Solution: “’It can’t happen here’ is number one on the list of famous last words.” -- David Crosby (c) 2014 by NEA, Inc., dist. by Universal Uclick 4-16

Astrograph Don’t get caught up in an unfortunate battle of wills Friday, May 9, 2014 Study and learning will provide you with lots of ideas. An intellectual outlook will improve your chances of snagging a leadership role. Intimate dealings with family, friends or neighbors will lead to an ideal partnership. Check out different philosophies and alter your life to suit your needs. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Social engagements will play a major role in your life if you let them. Make a fresh start. It’s a good time to enhance your appearance and improve your image. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -You have to meet any obligations you’ve made to family members before you help outsiders. Confrontations can be avoided by living up to past promises. Do what’s right. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Let someone else do the talking while you sit on the sidelines. You will learn valuable information by closely listening to people with experience. Use the information you receive to get ahead. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Even if you feel like slacking off,

push yourself to get things done. Moneymaking opportunities are apparent, but you must keep your career as a top priority. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don’t get caught up in an unfortunate battle of wills. Get all the information first and wait to take action. Time is on your side, and you don’t need to make hasty mistakes. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Don’t allow anyone to put you down. Your good judgment and sound decisions have served you well in the past, so continue doing what you’re doing. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Avoid joint ventures. Reviewing your financial documents will help to alleviate any confusion you may have regarding investments and money matters. Improve your personal surroundings and relationships. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Your work may suffer if you dwell on your personal problems. Keep your plans to yourself if you don’t want someone to take credit for your ideas.

PUZZLE ENTHUSIASTS: Get more puzzles in CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Let others know what’s on your mind. You will gain valuable insight if you speak up. Round up close friends for some recreation and entertainment. Romance is on the rise. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Risky financial ventures will be your downfall. Your desire to help those less fortunate is admirable, but keep an eye on your pocketbook. Investigate an organization carefully before making a donation. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Relationships should be your focus. Pay extra attention to the way you present who you are and what your life goals are. Sharing common aims will bring you closer to someone special. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are on a fast track to completing a multitude of different tasks. Others will be hard-pressed to keep up, but if you maintain control, they will enthusiastically align with you
