Matthew Welling sits down in court Wednesday morning, as his trial in the murder of Delmar “Leroy” Daniels begins. Welling remained stoic throughout Day 1, occasionally rocking in his chair, and scarcely consulted his attorney.

DIXON – If proven true, in the annals of senseless murders, this one will rank as one of the most needless, bloody and bizarre. It was 2 in the morning, and Leroy Daniels, who had lived all his life in this friendly little town, who had family living so close by that they drove past his home every day on their way back and forth to work, did what a lot of country folks might do. He answered a knock on the door.

Lindsey Glenn, who was with a group of friends at an Amboy bar that Welling was at the night of the murder, testifies. James McCallister testifies that he prevented Welling from leaving in a car with the passed out Glenn.

BLOODSHED CONTINUED ON A3

ROCK ISLAND – With the selection of four jurors Wednesday, eight people have been approved to serve during the upcoming murder trial of Nicholas Sheley – four women and four men. Those accepted Wednesday included three men and one woman: a welding supervisor at Rock Island Arsenal, a retired postal worker, a quality assurance worker, and a heavy equipment operator. Attorneys will need to approve Jeffrey eight more O’Connor jurors, including four alternates, Judge swiftly before the trial denies three can start. Since requests made by Sheley, Monday, 56 peoincluding one for ple have been a new judge questioned. Sheley, 34, of Sterling, is standing trial for four deaths in Rock Falls in 2008.

Former LOTS official under investigation Assistant director resigns, but receives unemployment BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5525

DIXON – A former employee of the Lee-Ogle Transportation System is under investigation, although officials aren’t giving details. Kathy Lalley, assistant director for LOTS, resigned March 19, after giving her notice a few days before. Both Lee County State’s Attorney Anna Sacco-Miller and Sheriff John Varga referred to investigative reports regarding Lalley in communications with Sauk Valley Media.

Last week, SVM sought documents related to an investigation of Lalley. Sacco-Miller released Lalley’s resignation letter and employment contract Wednesday, but not other records. “Once the investigative reports have been reviewed by another prosecuting agency and a decision regarding charging has been made, the remainder of the documents will be made available,” she wrote. On March 14, Lalley hand-delivered her resignation letter to County Board Chairman Rick Ketchum,

D-Amboy. In it, she wrote, “I have decided to resign my employment with Lee County, effective March 19, 2014. “For payroll purposes, I understand that it might be easier for the county if I use personal time for March 17 and 18, and I am willing to do that, provided that the county not contest my application for unemployment benefits,” she wrote. She called it a “private personnel matter,” requesting the county keep her resignation confidential until March 19. DEAR ABBY ......... A7 LOTTERY ............. A2 OBITUARIES ........ A4

“I have enjoyed working with you and am pleased to have had the opportunity to serve the people of Lee County for the last 15 years,” Lalley said in the letter to Ketchum. In a telephone interview, Lalley had no response to Sacco-Miller’s statement. “My understanding is that they were going to eliminate my position. I have some personal things going on in my life,” said Lalley, who made $44,000 a year. “I’m currently actively working to get another position.”

Sheley based his motions largely on his opinion that O’Connor is biased against him, and his skepticism of the way jurors have been selected. Assistant Attorney General Bill Elward called the motions a ridiculous attempt by Sheley to further delay the trial. “Just more nonsense,� he said. O’Connor denied the motions immediately after reading them. “I have personally exercised over 20 cause challenges,� O’Connor said. “I defy anybody in this courtroom to name one juror who has fudged an answer in an attempt to stay on this jury. ... I find it not only commendable but gratifying of the candor of these jurors who said they can’t be fair and were still dealt with accordingly. “So, as Mr. Sheley is staring down, flipping papers he’s not even reading, be it known that so far this array of jurors have been one of the most fair and excep-

Though a murder weapon never was recovered, autopsy results have indicated that the four were beaten repeatedly with a hammer. O’Connor granted a request by Sheley’s attorney, Jeremy Karlin of Galesburg, to move the trial outside of Whiteside County because of extensive media coverage of the case. Even with the move,

most prospective jurors questioned have said they have extensive knowledge of the killings. Of those, a majority have said they would be unable to remain impartial, based on preconceived notions of Sheley’s guilt. Sheley is serving two life sentences for the murders of Ronald Randall, 65, of Galesburg, and Russell Reed, 93, of Sterling; and is charged in the deaths of Arkansas couple Jill and Tom Estes, both 54, who were killed in a hotel parking lot in Festus, Missouri. After this trial is completed, Sheley will head to court in Missouri, where he could face the death penalty.

Pathologist testifies Daniels bled to death BLOODSHED

Court back in session this morning

CONTINUED FROM A1

The 79-year-old then was savaged with a broken glass flower vase and died in a massive pool of blood in the entryway of his own home, killed by a drunken, belligerent Matthew Welling, who had vowed to kill a man he didn’t know over a woman he’d just met – a woman who, to this day, does not remember speaking one word to him, who did not even recognize him in court – then went to the wrong house to make good on his threat. Welling was arrested the next day, after investigators found personal items – including his state ID and a vial of his dead brother’s ashes – at and near the scene. That’s the crux of the case Lee County Assistant State’s Attorney Peter Buh mounted Wednesday, in the first day of testimony in Welling’s murder trial. The 33-year-old is charged with five counts of first-degree murder and two counts of home invasion in connection with the death of Delmar “Leroy� Daniels, killed July 18, 2012. It took all day Tuesday to seat the jury; testimony began Wednesday in Lee County Judge Ron Jacobson’s courtroom. Fourteen people testified, including crime scene investigators, the forensic pathologist who did the autopsy, officers involved in Welling’s arrest, a friend to whom Welling might have confessed, the people with whom he was drinking that night, and the bartender who served him. Daniels’ wife, Betty Daniels, who family members say has MS and fairly significant memory problems, and is easily confused, did not take the stand and was not in court. According to the day’s testimony, all by the prosecution’s witnesses: Welling was staying in Amboy at the home of a friend, Jake Hvarre. He and Hvarre went out drinking, and wound up at the Last Alarm bar. Hvarre eventually went home, leaving Welling there. From about 10:15 until closing, Welling downed 11 draft beers – six in the first 45 minutes – and four shots, bartender Beckie Talley testified. “I told him he had to slow down and he said ‘Sorry, I always drink like this,’� Talley testified.

Lee County Assistant State’s Attorney Peter Buh points at Matthew Welling during his opening statement Wednesday morning, accusing him of killing Leroy Daniels after threatening another man, James McCallister, who lived near Daniels in a similar home. See more photos at saukvalley.com. While at the bar, he met James McCallister, James Prather and Lindsey Glenn, then all of Amboy. The latter three have been friends since middle school. According to her own testimony, Glenn was black-out drunk, and remembers nothing from that night until she woke up in her car at 6 the next morning. Not meeting Welling, not talking to Welling, not even being in the bar. McCallister and Prather had put her in the back seat of her car to sleep it off, but Welling got in and was going to drive her away, telling the two friends that Glenn was “his responsibility, his girl.� The two men wouldn’t allow it, though. Welling got angry and threatened them. “When you go home tonight and go to sleep, I’m going to come break in and kill you,� he told McCallister. Welling later showed up in front of McCallister’s house, and again made threats. Police later found Welling’s ID and an empty pack of cigarettes near McCallister’s home, which is about 300 yards from the Danielses’. Both homes are the same gray-blue color, and both have narrow concrete steps leading to a stoop and a white door. Victoria Maloney has been friends with Welling nearly 20 year, she testified. She said he dated her sister, and Maloney has visited him at least once a month for the last 2 years he’s been in Lee County Jail. She had loaned him a cellphone, which he used to text her “I f----- up� about an hour after Daniels was attacked.

When Buh pressed Maloney on the details of her interview with police after Welling’s arrest, though, she said she didn’t remember all the things police said she told them, including a conversation she had with Welling in which he supposedly told her “I’m in trouble. I’m going to prison.� She did remember Welling telling her he had blood on him, though, she said. The morning after the attack, the Danielses’ daughter, Lisa O’Connell, was driving to work and noticed her parents’ porch light still on, and the drapes drawn. That was unusual. She noticed it again that night on her way home, and when she couldn’t reach her parents by phone, she and her daughter went to the Danielses’ home to check on them. That was 17 hours or so after the attack. McConnell found her mom, who uses a motorized scooter because of her MS, sitting on the floor next to her dad’s body, her scooter overturned. Her dad, who was lying face up, was obviously dead, she said. Not only could she see the large red splotch of blood pooling in his back, but also “the pool of blood was so very large around him ... my common sense told me he was dead,� she testified, adding that she had to have her daughter call 9-1-1, because she couldn’t in that awful moment remember how to work her phone. Photos from the crime scene and the autopsy were put up on several screens, underscoring McConnell’s testimony. The judge had warned

the audience early on that they would be gruesome, bloody, hard to take. They were. They looked like stills from a slasher movie. According to Dr. Mark Peters, forensic pathologist, and to the photos, Leroy Daniels had dozens of incisions and stab woulds on his face, neck, upper chest, arms, hands, even some on his feet and legs, all consistent with defensive wounds, and all consistent with a broken tubular vase found at the scene. His jaw, nose, ribs,

Adam’s apple and hyoid bone were broken, from some sort of external force exerting blunt trauma, Peters said. He couldn’t say if Daniels had been squeezed, or if the vase or some other object had been used to exert pressure. What caused his death, though, was hemorrhagic shock: Leroy Daniels bled to death. Illinois State Police CSIs processing the scene found damaged dentures and broken eyeglasses on the floor near the door. They found the jagged vase and glass shards, and fake pink flowers in the blood that had coagulated around Daniels’ body. The vial of ashes, engraved with Welling’s brother’s name, was stuck to the floor near his head; a black T-shirt and a broken black flip-flop, which investigators say are Welling’s, were found nearby. Bloody bare footprints were in the entryway, the kitchen, outside on the stoop. Blood splatter drenched the walls.

Lee County Sheriff’s Detective Shane Miller interviewed Welling after his arrest. Welling had a large cut on his forehead, blood under his fingernails and cuts on his fingers and feet, Miller testified. Welling told him about texting Maloney. Through it all, through all the testimony, all the blood and gore, Welling sat pale, stoic, expressionless, occasionally rocking back and forth in his seat, but mostly sitting still. He and his attorney, Public Defender Bob Thompson, hardly spoke to each other. Thompson cross-examined only a few of the state’s witnesses, and then asked only a few questions. Perhaps the most telling was when he asked Miller if Welling admitted to causing those wounds to himself. Welling did not, Miller said. In December 2012, Thompson notified the court that he may use selfdefense as a defense for his client. By about 3:30 p.m., court adjourned.

OBITUARIES Burrel J. ‘B.J.’ Reynolds DIXON – Burrel J. “B.J.� Reynolds, 92, of Dixon, died Wednesday, May 14, 2014, at Delnor Hospital in Geneva. He was born July 17, 1921, in Dixon, the son of Robert and Susan (Knifer) Reynolds. He served in the Navy from 1940 to 1946. He was captured at the fall of Corregidor, and became a Japanese prisoner of war for 3 years and 4 months – as a slave laborer in the fields at Cabanatuan, Philippines; in a copper mine at Hitachi, Japan; and digging a tunnel for a hydroelectric plant in Mitsushima, Japan. He was at each of the camps for about 1 year. He was transported from the Philippines to Japan in an infamous “Hell Ship.� After the war, he returned to Dixon and married Kathleen Mantsch on March 9, 1948, in Rockford. She preceded him in death on Sept. 12, 2002. They were married 54 years. B.J. spent his adult life as an independent contractor in many homes and businesses in Dixon. B.J. was a longtime member of St. Pat-

rick Catholic Church in Dixon, American Defenders of Bataan & Corregidor, the American Legion, the Dixon Garden Club, and Kiwanis. He truly was a hero and a remarkable man, who touched many with his great compassion, strong faith, and good humor. He is survived by one daughter, Lyn (Bob) Turnbull of St. Charles; two grandchildren, Paul (Megan) Turnbull and Ann (Tom) Hufford; three great-grandchildren, Liam, Lucy, and Nora; and one sister, Anna Gerdes of Dixon. Visitation will be from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday and the Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. Friday at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Dixon, with the Rev. Bernard Sehr officiating.

position would get unemployment. According to the state Department of Employment Security, which provides unemployment benefits, those who lose their jobs through no fault of their own such as a layoff or discharge are eligible. The program does not help people who are “idle by choice,� the agency’s website says. Ketchum said he was surprised that the state would give unemployment to someone who resigned from a job. On Election Day, March 18, Lalley wrote, “Good Luck today!!!!!� on Lee County sheriff candidate John Simonton’s Facebook page. She was among a number of local officials who backed the victorious Simonton over Varga in

the GOP primary. Varga referred questions about the investigation to the state’s attorney’s office. From the treasurer’s office, Lalley served as LOTS’ acting director from late 2010 until she took the assistant director’s position in July 2012. The county hired Jaime Blatti, a human service transportation planner with the state Department of Transportation, as director. At the time, Lalley said she has applied for the assistant’s position because it was a better fit for her – she needed more flexibility because she was expecting grandchildren.

ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE

Madigan: Budget vote helps with tax increase SPRINGFIELD (AP) – House Speaker Michael Madigan said Wednesday that his chamber’s effort to pass a budget without first securing all the needed revenue would aid a push to make an income tax hike permanent, but his colleagues in the Senate were not happy with the unusual move. The clash between leaders in the two Democratic-led chambers comes as lawmakers are still trying to gather the necessary votes to extend the income tax hike in an increasingly public intersection of

fiscal policy and election-year politics. “Our purpose in advancing the budget first is to set the bar against which we will work to convince people to vote for the revenue,� Madigan told reporters following a hearing at the state Capitol on expanding a state tax credit program. “We try to persuade people. We’re not in the business of issuing threats.� Madigan needs 60 votes to pass an extension of the state’s

income tax increase in his chamber, a difficult goal, even for the powerful Chicago Democrat and Illinois Democratic Party chair. Several of the 71 House Democrats are facing difficult re-election bids in moderate swing districts, and others have signed pledges to keep the state’s 2011 tax hike temporary. Meanwhile, the chamber’s 47 Republicans remain unified in their opposition to extending the increase.

IN BRIEF

No deal yet in police labor talks

JFK dinner deadline set for Tuesday

Fire negotiations also are ongoing BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com    EXT

STERLING – The city and union reps for its police department were unable to reach agreement on a new labor deal during a mediation session Wednesday. The meeting was originally scheduled as an arbitration session, but the union requested that it be changed to a mediation format. A mediator presides over a meeting to facilitate negotiations as an unbiased third party, while an arbitrator is entrusted with handing down a

decision in the matter. The decision is usually binding for both parties. The next step in the process is scheduled for early next week, City Manager Scott Shumard said. “We didn’t reach an agreement today,� he said. “Our attorney is now scheduled to speak with the police union’s negotiator on Tuesday.� That next step could determine whether an arbitrator will actually be brought in this time. Shumard did not know when the negotiating teams would be back at the table. “No further dates have been set at this time,� Shumard said. The city’s contract with its police department

expired April 30, 2013. Because the jobs are in the public safety arena, the existing contract is automatically extended until a new labor agreement is reached with the department. City Manager Scott Shumard said negotiations broke down early in the process last year, leading to the decision to call in a third party. The city is also still negotiating a new labor pact with its fire union. That deal expired April 30, and also has been automatically extended. The first negotiating session between the city and the fire union was Feb. 13. A second meeting was held Tuesday, and another is sched-

uled for this upcoming Tuesday. Lt. Matt Laughlin, the fire department’s union representative, said he believes some progress was made at their most recent session. “We’ll do whatever we can to avoid bringing in an arbitrator or mediator,� Laughlin said. Laughlin believes that both sides are still bargaining in good faith, which he says is cause for hope. “We understand that the city is trying to work with us on a variety of issues,� Laughlin said. “We’re not blowing each other off; we’re maintaining good communication.� One area that has required some discussion

is bringing the captains into the union. Some contract language had to be modified to bring them into the bargaining unit. “They were not under city contract and had been ‘at-will’ employees,� Laughlin said. “They are now represented by our local.� Labor law dictates that “at-will� employees do not have some of the protections afforded by a union contract, especially with regard to termination. In recent history, Sterling police and fire contracts have been renegotiated every 3 years. The police and fire departments account for one-third of the city’s full-time staff, Shumard said.

DIXON

District to interview consultants for strategic planning BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com    EXT

DIXON – The Dixon School Board will interview three educational consultants this month with the intention of hiring one to lead the district’s strategic planning. In April, the strategic planning task force, which had been meeting to study and discuss the state of the district buildings for 8 months, recommended that the School Board hire a consultant to lead the district through its long-range planning. The board officially accepted that recommendation during its regular meeting Wednesday night and set the interviews for the three candidates. The interviews are open to the public and will be held at the district’s central office. The district will interview Rod Wright, of Unicom Arc Inc., on

and when it comes to athletic and performing arts facilities.

The district received two bids for the work, with Winter Construction coming in lowest by $2,700.

Contract awarded The school board unanimously awarded a contract to Winter Construction Inc. for $82,900 for safety and security improvements at Jefferson Elementary and Washington Elementary. A portion of the work – $68,050 – will be paid for with a grant from the state of Illinois through a program aimed to help schools upgrade and enhance school security, primarily at building entrances.

Madison address The School Board unanimously approved the reinstatement of the name Madison Elementary School and set its address at 610 Division St. In December, the School Board voted 4-2 to close the Lincoln Elementary School building in an effort to

address the district’s financial woes. As a result, some of the buildings assigned to each grade will change starting next academic year, and Madison, which consists of half of the Reagan Middle School building, will function as its own building, necessitating an address.

Budget hearing The Dixon School Board will hold a public hearing during its next regular meeting on June 18, for public comment on an amended 2013-14 fiscal year budget. The budget was placed on file during Wednesday night’s meeting and is available for public review at the district’s central office.

Prepare for state’s 200th G

ov. Pat Quinn is a busy man these days. An unfinished budget, uncertainty about extending the income tax hike, billions of dollars in unpaid bills, and the state’s multibilliondollar debt rest heavily on his shoulders. Quinn is under scrutiny for hiring practices in the Department of Transportation and for his handling of a neighborhood anti-violence program in Chicago. And he faces a strong challenger in the November election in the person of Republican Bruce Rauner. Yet, the governor took time Monday to look ahead to 2018, the state’s 200th birthday, and announce the start of planning for that big event. Quinn signed an executive order to create the 2018 Illinois Bicentennial Commission. He called it a grass-roots organization that will plan a celebration that will be meaningful to every state resident and also spur history-based tourism. The Bicentennial Commission has a big job

The story they concocted to explain the atrocities was that this was a reaction of a street crowd to a cheap, anti-Muslim Internet clip made earlier that summer. For a while, that story seemed to fly. The president was able to continue misleading the electorate with his claim that al-Qaida was on the run, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was able to distance herself from the failure of her State Department to protect its own employees. This can all be corroborated by searching www. foxnews.com, and, yes, mid-term elections are just around the corner.

SPRINGFIELD – I love animals. But that shouldn’t be surprising. I’m the son and husband of veterinarians. My house is a menagerie with four dogs, two cats, two rabbits, and a pair of parakeets. Some of the creatures have special needs. For example, there is the newborn kitten born without eyes that we took in, raised on a bottle, and now has been a member of our family for 8 years. Or there is the rabbit that a client of my wife begged her to adopt State Sen. a f t e r s h e Dan Kotowski d e v e l o p e d D-Park Ridge allergies to her pet.

That’s why some legislation introduced recently in the Illinois Legislature gives me pause. It seems, state Sen. Dan Kotowski, D-Park Ridge, and state Rep. Dan Burke, D-Chicago, have introduced legislation to prohibit pet stores from selling dogs that haven’t been rescued from the pound or an animal rescue group. So much for trusting consumers to make wise decisions for themselves. Under this bill, consumers could buy dogs from breeders. But pet stores would be prohibited from purchasing from breeders. The bill’s proponents say it will cut down on “puppy mills.� Here is how the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals defines puppy mill: “A puppy mill is a large-scale commercial dog breeding operation that places profit over the well-being of its dogs.� BUT THE ILLINOIS legislation essentially lumps all breeders into that category. There are bad dog breeders out there, just like there are unethical accountants, sloppy electricians, and dishonest politicians. But most breeders, like most people

in any given profession, do a good job. In fact, most of the dog breeders I’ve met are nice people who love animals and are committed to finding them good homes. The federal government licenses commercial dog breeders to ensure they raise their animals in a safe, clean environment. But apparently that’s not good enough for some state lawmakers. They want to throw the puppy out with its bath water. The bill, which Gov. Pat Quinn endorses, would put some pet stores out of business. It also would make it tougher for dog breeders, who are mostly momand-pop business owners. In fact, most of the breeders I know are doing it part-time to supplement their income. I BOUGHT HERSHEY, my Labrador retriever puppy, from an older woman battling muscular sclerosis and living on Social Security. Despite her physical ailments, she made sure the dogs were clean and well cared for. In the years after our purchase, she periodically would inquire how her “baby� was getting along. She certainly didn’t get rich raising dogs. But it helped her make ends meet. And she found loving homes for hundreds of puppies. But the bill before the Legislature would prohibit pet stores from buying from businesses such as hers. It’s all part of that smug, government-knows-best mindset that pervades Springfield. The “thinking� goes something like this: More dogs need to be adopted from animal shelters, so we’ll make it impossible for pet stores to sell anything but “rescue� dogs. Never mind that it hurts small businesses owners. Never mind that it reduces choices for potential pet owners. And never mind that many of the health problems present at poorly run “puppy mills� also plague dog pounds and other shelters.

Husband’s foreign fluency leaves wife speechless Dear Abby: My wife and I speak English as our native language. I also speak other languages fluently, although my wife does not. When we travel to a country where I speak the language, she insists I speak only English. She says everybody in the world now speaks English and accuses me of showing off when I converse with a local in his or her language. She says it makes her uncomfortable. I realize many people in other countries speak some – or even a lot of – English, but many do not. What do you think? – Speechless in Atlanta Dear Speechless: Much as your wife might wish

However, to carry on long, involved conversations while your wife just stands there is rude, and if you find out that the person with whom you are talking also speaks English, you should make an effort to see that she is included. Dear Abby: I was born with a very weak heart. At the age of 23, I went into heart failure and needed surgery. It has been 2 years since my open heart procedure, and it has changed my life for the best. As a young, semi-attractive male, I feel insecure about my scar.

Extra caution can help at bad break

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

U.S. Rep. George Miller, from California, said, “The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later, you’re hungry again.” The trouble with 5-6 hands is deciding in which order to bid the suits. Look at today’s South hand. Would you open one spade or one heart? With a relatively weak hand, it is better to open one spade and describe your hand as a 5-5. But this hand has very few losers if partner has a fit in one suit (or, even better, in both suits). So South should plan to bid hearts, spades and spades again to describe his 5-6. Note that his two-spade rebid is a reverse because partner, to show preference

for the first-bid suit (hearts), has to go to the three-level. There are two other points about the two-level reverse. It guarantees that the firstbid suit is longer than the

second-bid, and it shows extra strength, instigating a game-force. So North quietly supports hearts before using the Grand-Slam Force, asking South to bid seven hearts with two of the top three trumps. (Roman Key Card Blackwood would also do the job.) Surely South has the spade king for his threespade bid. How should South play after West leads the diamond king to dummy’s ace? Just in case the breaks are bad, declarer should play a low trump to his ace. When West discards, South leads a spade to dummy’s ace, returns a spade to his king and ruffs a spade with dummy’s heart queen. Then he plays a heart to his nine, draws trumps and claims. © 2014 UFS

MOVIE REVIEW | ‘GODZILLA’

Big guy’s back more bloated than ever BY ROGER MOORE MCT News Service

Let’s see if we remember how this goes. “With a purposeful grimace and a terrible scowl, he pulls the spitting high-tension wires down.” And “Oh no, there goes Tokyo.” Well, not this time. It’s “Oh no, there goes [San] Francisco.” “Godzilla” belches back to life in a new Warner Bros. film that harks back to the kid-friendlier versions of these Japanese “Kaiju” (big monster) movies. In an increasingly radioactive world menaced by radiation-eating beasties, the return of the almost cuddly “King of the Monsters” might be the least of our troubles. The opening credits cleverly revisit the 1940s and ‘50s atomic testing that awakened Godzilla once. Gareth Edwards’ film then jumps to the late ‘90s, where mysterious goings on in mining operations in the Philippines and near nuclear plants in Japan hint that something bad is about to go down. Bryan Cranston is an American engineer working with his wife (Juliette Binoche), when a tragic accident means their little boy, Ford, will grow up without a mom. Years later, Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson of “KickAss”) is a Navy bomb disposal expert, and Dad’s still hanging around the

ruins of that Japanese reactor, a wild-eyed loon determined to get to the bottom of a cover-up. Something is awakening. Call it a MUTO (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism). And call in the military. Dr. Ichiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) has been

following developments all these years. He knows what’s up. He’s seen the Toho movies. He’s heard the Blue Oyster Cult song. Visual effects master turned director Gareth Edwards impressed Hollywood with his low-budget version of this sort of

story, “Monsters.” Given a huge budget and hours to tell the tale, he delivers a lumbering movie that’s as bloated as this new roly-poly version of the Big Guy, whom we only see in all his glory in the later acts. Cranston blubbers with emotion – “Something KILLED my wife, and I have a RIGHT to know!” Taylor-Johnson doesn’t break a sweat as beasts try to keep him from making it home to his wife (Elizabeth Olsen) and child in San Francisco. Watanabe runs through a panoply of “stricken” looks as he sees

2 stars (Grade C-minus) Cast: Aaron TaylorJohnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Sally Hawkins, Bryan Cranston, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn Directed by Gareth Edwards, written Max Borenstein and Dave Callaham, and based the Toho Studios “Godzilla” movies. A Warner Bros. release. Running time: 2:03 MPAA rating: PG-13 for intense sequences of destruction, mayhem and creature violence The movie opens this weekend at Carmike Sauk Valley 8 in Sterling and the Midway Drivein between Dixon and Sterling.

the menace, understands it and fails to convince the admiral (David Strathairn) in charge that the natural world needs “order,” and perhaps the giant lizard “will restore it.” Sally Hawkins was wastefully cast to simply stand behind Watanabe as Dr. Serizawa makes another “What fresh hell is this?” face. The effects are decent – warships tossed about like bathtub toys, trains trashed and torched, nuclear missiles munched. The movie’s never less than competent. But the fatigue of

over-familiarity curses this franchise like few others. We’ve seen Japanese men in monster suits. We’ve seen digital kaiju, and gigantic robotarmored soldiers fighting them (“Pacific Rim”). So in a tale this timeworn and a film this devoid of humor, with only a few moments of humanity, with tension frittered away by the tedious repetition of the fights, anybody who has ever seen “Godzilla” in any incarnation can be forgiven for asking the obvious: “What else have you got?”

IN BRIEF

TBS renews ‘Conan’ through 2018 Fans skew younger than other shows NEW YORK – Amid a flurry of changes in the late-night TV landscape, TBS is sticking with Conan O’Brien. The network announced Wednesday that it renewed “Conan� through 2018. “Over the past 4 years, we have built a terrific relationship with Conan O’Brien and are thrilled to be extending his series for another 3 years,� said Michael Wright, president and head of programming for TBS and TNT, in the news release announcing the renewal. Wright praised O’Brien, whose fans skew younger than those of most other late-night hosts, for bringing “an incredibly young audience to TBS.�

Conan O’Brien and Angie Harmon take a selfie backstage Wednesday at the TNT and TBS Network 2014 Upfront Presentations at Madison Square Garden in New York. TBS says Conan O’Brien will be sticking around with his late-night hour through 2018. The network also touted O’Brien’s strong digital presence: The host has 10.7 million followers on Twitter and 2.5 million Facebook fans.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better late-night host or a more enthusiastic ambassador for the TBS brand,� Wright said. O’Brien brought his off-

kilter brand of comedy to the Turner-owned cable network in November 2010 after his acrimonious departure from NBC’s “The Tonight Show.� The

program debuted strong to 4.1 million viewers, but now draws a fraction of that number, averaging 796,000 same-day viewers nightly over the last 12 months. But the show has carved out a niche among younger fans of so-called geek culture. Next year, it will become the first latenight talk show to tape at San Diego Comic Con, the annual confab that is a magnet for gamers, comic book enthusiasts and lovers of genre fare. The renewal of “Conan� brings some stability to the late-night hours, which are in a period of major transition, with “The Tonight Show� now hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert set to replace David Letterman at CBS in 2015 and Craig Ferguson leaving “The Late Late Show� at the end of this year.

Great rate of exchange for Bureau Valley Arnadottir making most of time in Illinois BY TY REYNOLDS treynolds@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5554

Like everything else in her life since last August, track is a new experience for Helena Osk Arnadottir. The Bureau Valley senior is a foreign exchange student from Njardvik, Iceland, and is coming to the end of her 10-monthlong journey to the Midwest. “It’s getting here way too fast; I’m not really prepared mentally to go back home,” Arnadottir said during a rainy track practice Wednesday afternoon in Manlius. “I try not to think about it, because it’s sad. Everything here is still so new, and I’m just trying to enjoy the rest of my time here.” Philip Marruffo/pmarruffo@saukvalley.com

At 5 feet, 2½ inches tall, Sterling’s Ashleigh Tira is not the most imposing hurdler on the track. The Sterling sophomore doesn’t let her small stature keep her down, and she has state-qualifying hopes for the 300 hurdles heading into Friday’s 2A Freeport Sectional.

Tira doesn’t let height slow her down on track BY BRIAN WEIDMAN bweidman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5551

Ashleigh Tira doesn’t exactly cut an imposing figure while standing in the blocks, getting ready to run a hurdles race. The Sterling sophomore stands 5 feet, 2½ inches tall. She is not that much taller than the obstacles she has to jump over. She admits to being a bit intimidated before races, looking up at opponents. Then the fun begins. “They look at me and they look down at me, and they’re like, ‘I

hurdles, which is within shouting distance of the state qualifying standard of 15.94. Her specialty, however, is the 300 hurdles. Her top time in that event is 48.22, close to the qualifying mark of 47.84. She will run that race, along with two relays, at the Class 2A Freeport Sectional on Friday. Tira is the third seed, behind a pair of Burlington Central hurdlers, Jasmine Castillo (46.92) and Bryce Weinrich (47.84).

Finishing touches applied Greul’s homer launches Mustangs past Comets BY DAN WOESSNER dwoessner@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5555

STERLING – The first inning of Wednesday’s game was a glimpse of a Morrison Mustang team that could be very dangerous in next week’s 2A Stillman Valley Regional. For most of the year, the Mustangs have depended upon solid pitching, beginning with left-handed starters Bill Greul and Joey Brackemyer. Behind those two dependable arms has been a sturdy defense. The last component – an explosive offense – arrived just in time for the Newman Comets. Michael Krabbenhoeft/mkrabbenhoeft@saukvalley.com Morrison scored three times in the first inning, Morrison’s Chance Bender slides safely into third base while opening the door for an 8-1 Three Rivers North Newman’s Ricky Rank waits for the ball during Wednesday’s victory. game in Sterling.

Help wanted for Crawford P

atrick Kane went forehand. Then backhand. Then top shelf. Hello, Western Conference final. Kane launched the Blackhawks into their fourth conference final in the last six seasons with a sweet and completely expected overtime game-winner. Sweet because he followed a fluky bounce off a stanchion and deked Minnesota goalie Ilya Bryzgalov and the annoying and sometimes scary Wild into next season. Completely expected because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Kane does in these kinds of moments. In seven potential clinching Game 6s since 2009, Kane now has 11 goals, three of them game-winners, meaning he has ended almost half of the matches with some kind of sudden brilliance. Indeed, the Hawks have no more dramatic player than Kane. They had no better player in Game 6, however, than Corey Crawford. Without Crawford, Kane never wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a chance to be a hero. In fact, we mightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen the first Stanley Cup playoff game with a running clock. Crawford stopped 34 of 35 shots, and he was under such a siege that you wondered what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d done on the flight

opponents, the Hawks have to be better than that. They have to dictate the pace and terms of play, and they have to be smarter on the road. The first two games in St. Louis were all kinds of stupid, starting with Brent Seabrookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suspendable hit on David Backes. Expecting a brutal series, the Hawks wanted to be the ones who lashed out first. Took them a week to wise up. Took them a week to remember that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t their game. The first two games in Minnesota were a pile of stubbornness against whatever version of the trap the Wild were playing. The Hawks believed they could stickhandle through anything, even 1-on-5, but no, they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, and here come the Wild on yet another rush. Finally, the Hawks played a dump-andchase game that loosened up the disciplined Wild in a Game 5 win. In Game 6, the Hawks had the better goalie and the luckier moment. They will take all of it, of course. They will take whatever invitation there is when it comes to the conference final. But they need to play better on the road â&#x20AC;&#x201C; smarter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the unusual position of perhaps not having homeice advantage in either of the next two rounds.

HORSE RACING PREVIEW | PREAKNESS

California Chrome set as favorite Derby winner draws No. 3 post in 10-horse field for Preakness BY BETH HARRIS !03PORTS7RITER

BALTIMORE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome was made the odds-on favorite at 3-5 on Wednesday for the Preakness Stakes, and he drew an inside post position in the 10-horse field that includes a filly for the first time in 5 years. Trained by Art Sherman and ridden by Victor Espinoza, California Chrome will break from the No. 3 post, which has produced 10 winners in the previous 138 runnings of the 1 3/16-mile race, the last being Prairie Bayou in 1993. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three is fine with me,â&#x20AC;? Sherman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the speed is on the outside of me. If they go, they go, I can tuck in right behind them without any problems. I think my horse will perform.â&#x20AC;? So does California Chromeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coowner Steve Coburn, who dared to look ahead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One race at a time,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still thinking Triple Crown.â&#x20AC;? If California Chrome wins on Saturday, next up would be the Belmont Stakes on June 7. Only 11 horses have swept the Derby, Preakness and Belmont, and none have done it since 1978.

Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome gallops around Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore Wednesday in preparation for Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Preakness Stakes. California Chrome is a 3-5 favorite in the 10-horse race. California Chrome brings a five-race winning streak into the Preakness, having won that many by a combined 26 lengths. Still, his overwhelming odds surprised Sherman, a 77-year-old trainer who has never had a colt this good. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be that kind of price,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be 6-5.â&#x20AC;?

Speedster Social Inclusion was the 5-1 second choice of new Pimlico oddsmaker Keith Feustle. The colt drew the No. 8 post. He skipped the Kentucky Derby, and is one of seven new horses lining up to challenge California Chrome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m never afraid of nothing,â&#x20AC;? owner Ron Sanchez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a great post position. We have slow horses to our outside. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to help us a lot.â&#x20AC;? Bayern and Ride On Curlin are the co-third choices at 10-1. Bayern, who drew the No. 5 post, is trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, who is seeking a sixth Preakness win. Rosie Napravnik will ride the colt, trying to become the first female jockey to win the race.

Less than 2 months into his career, Jose Abreu is already the guy the Chicago White Sox want at the plate when the game is on the line. Abreu hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning, and the White Sox snapped a fourgame losing streak with a 4-2 victory over the Athletics on Wednesday in Oakland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We realize what he is and how important he is to us,â&#x20AC;? manager Robin Ventura said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you get in situations like that, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty glad heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up there.

Gordon Beckham homered on the first pitch of the game for the White Sox, who rallied against Oaklandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bullpen to end a seven-game losing streak at the Coliseum.

Rockets rally to beat Hawks Erickson drives in winner for Rock Falls "Y36-3PORTS3TAFF

Michael Krabbenhoeft/mkrabbenhoeft@saukvalley.com

Newman’s Michael Ely singles during the sixth inning of Wednesday’s game against Morrison in Sterling. Ely drove in Trevor Bolin for the Comets’ lone run in an 8-1 loss.

Greul works out of jam in sixth TOUCHES

CONTINUED FROM B1

After Andy Bird struck out to start the game for Morrison (16-5), Ben Tegeler hit the first of two doubles – this one a rocket shot down the left-field line. A groundout moved Tegeler to third, before he scored on an RBI single by Justin Jensen, who drove in a run in three of his four at-bats. Greul came to the plate next and launched the second pitch well over the right-field fence. “That’s what we’ve been looking for from Bill all season,” Morrison coach Ben Sondgeroth said. “Our bats have struggled a little bit, and it’s nice to see them coming out of it. “Getting Bill that threerun lead right away was huge. He went to the mound comfortable.”

Unlike Greul, Buhler (1-3) was behind the 8-ball. He worked a flawless second, before giving up two more runs in the third on RBI hits by Jensen and Mason Sitzmore. A single run came across in the fourth on Tegeler’s second double. Buhler’s day came to an end after hitting Ryan VanZuiden and walking Bird to start the sixth. Matt Wagenecht pitched the last six outs. “I didn’t think Alex pitched too bad,” Newman coach Tom Wilson said. “He made a bad pitch here or there, or he would get behind in a count and have to throw a fastball. They have the kind of hitters that make you pay for that.” Greul didn’t allow a hit until the fourth inning. In the sixth, Trevor Bolin got the inning started with a single. After getting two outs, Michael Ely drove in Bolin with an RBI single.

“I thought our approach changed later in the game,” Wilson said. “We didn’t start the game very aggressive. I think they thought he’d walk them. He’s too good of a pitcher for that. We had to come up hitting.” After Ely, Brandon Burke singled and Wagenecht walked to load the bases. Greul dug deep and got Elias Edmondson to fly out to end the jam. “I’ve been having back issues most of the season,” Greul said. “It started to bother me that inning, but I knew I had to keep going for my team.” “That’s what you expect from a senior,” Sondgeroth said. “He got in a tough spot, but he didn’t panic, and battled out of it. That’s the example we want him to set.” Sitzmore came in to work the last inning to shut the door on the Comets.

Cayden Erickson’s two-out single in the top of the seventh drove in Jacob Mammosser with the go-ahead run, and lifted Rock Falls to a 5-4 victory at Oregon on Wednesday.

The time so far has been jampacked with sports and other school activities. A basketball player on her hometown team, Arnadottir took the opportunity of being in a new place to soak up as much experience as she could. She ran cross country in the fall as BVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 2 runner, and has run on the Stormâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1,600 and 3,200 relay teams all spring. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now looking forward to her first and only IHSA track sectional, to be held at BVHS today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like challenges, and trying new things,â&#x20AC;? the 17-year-old said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried to do a little of everything this year, and this track season â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hurdles, jumps, sprints, whatever I could try. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had so much fun.â&#x20AC;? Her coaches and teammates have had just as much fun being around her. Dale Donner, who coached Arnadottir in both cross country and track, has found her natural ability impressive, and her enthusiasm for things infectious. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very coachable, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hard worker, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so athletic and willing to learn,â&#x20AC;? Donner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to give it her all no matter what sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her first time, she was in the mid-31s,â&#x20AC;? Donner said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obviously a lot of natural ability there. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been fun and rewarding to watch her grow both last fall and this spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The foreign exchange is a two-way street,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned as much from her as sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learned from us, and every time you see her, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got this big smile and so much eagerness. When the other girls see that, it makes them excited to be out there with her.â&#x20AC;? Arnadottirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main events are the distance relays, which she said she prefers over the triple jump â&#x20AC;&#x153;because it makes it more fun to be part of a team.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seeded seventh in the sectional in the triple jump with a personal-best leap of 32 feet, 4 inches, while the 1,600 relay is seeded third (4:14.29) and the 3,200 relay sits sixth (10:47.44). She runs in the 3,200 relay with a fellow exchange student Veronica â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roniâ&#x20AC;? Riggen, from Guadalajara, Mexico. The two live with the same host family, Marcus and Bobi Throneburg of Sheffield. Funny thing: Arnadottir was never supposed to find her way to Illinois. Originally intending to spend the year with a family in Houston, her plans changed at the last minute due to a job

But also having no idea about the triple jump whatsoever, she jumped in with both feet and quickly mastered the task.

relocation in her intended host family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had everything packed and was ready for Texas, then right at the last moment before I left, I found out I was going to Illinois,â&#x20AC;? Arnadottir said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had to pack another whole suitcase full of warm clothes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it feels like destiny to be here. I think I would have been tired of the heat after some time, and the school I was supposed to go to had 2,000 students. I never would have been able to try all the different sports and activities I have done here in a school that big.â&#x20AC;? Back in Iceland, Arnadottir explained that you choose one sport and play it year-round. For her, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played for the town team for 8 years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the chance to try something different was too much to pass up. But not knowing a thing about softball, and already having had Donner as a coach for cross country, track seemed the obvious choice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like track and cross country a lot, because you can see yourself succeeding more,â&#x20AC;? Arnadottir said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In basketball, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harder to see if you are getting better; you might just be having one or two good games. In track, you can see your times get better, and so you know

Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll turn 18 in June, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eager to celebrate her birthday back home with her family, and rediscover the freedom of being in a familiar place with familiar faces. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as happy with the fact that she still has 2 more years of schooling left in Iceland. Still, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learned valuable lessons in life as well as sports and school, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking forward to one more American experience before she goes home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to Boston in June, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very excited to take that little trip,â&#x20AC;? Arnadottir said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year has been amazing. Going to another country and living with strangers, it can be very tough, but I think it has made me become stronger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the people are what I will always remember, so friendly and making me feel so welcome. It was so easy to get along with them, and I feel like I bonded with so many people, with me asking them so many questions and them being as interested in asking me questions about Iceland. I think I will keep coming back and visiting a lot in the future.â&#x20AC;?

Astrograph Follow your heart and stand firm Thursday, May 15, 2014 This will be an eventful and exciting year for you. Follow your heart and stand firm regarding your goals. You can simplify things by refusing to let others complicate your plans. Determination, hard work and focus will get you where you want to go. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Confusion, mistakes and a lack of control could be problems for you today. Remain diligent at your workplace despite the conditions. Certain relationships are likely to be difficult. Avoid restrictions. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will capture the attention of your superiors. Show how much of a team player you can be. Make relevant suggestions that are sure to improve the workplace. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone close to you may be deceptive. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let your anger get the better of you. Try to pinpoint the source of the problem and work it out together. Honesty is the best policy. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -You will have to make some compromises to stay in the good

graces of your colleagues today. Someone will feel that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve failed to be attentive or caring. Make amends. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Children and loved ones should be included in your plans. Find something physical to participate in. Sports events or other outdoor activities will provide a muchneeded diversion. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Take a good look around and consider what positive adjustments you can make to your home. Get feedback from friends and family. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to reorganize or recycle any unused or unwanted possessions. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Proceed with caution when using mechanical or electrical devices. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll encounter problems if you take a shortcut. You will get the results you want by being methodical and precise. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Consider starting a home-based business. Your ideas are good, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t share them until you have everything in place. Someone will steal your deal if you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t careful.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Emphasize your best traits when dealing with superiors. You will be well- equipped for a promotion if you develop a closer rapport with those in a position to further your interests. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You need to make big personal decisions without getting flustered. It may not be as difficult as you imagine, although you may need to do some extra research to discover the right course of action. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Expand your circle of friends. Stimulate your curiosity by visiting different locations. Make the most of an opportunity to explore interesting people, places and pastimes. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Someone may feel left out if you are too busy with work. Take time to listen and offer suggestions. Equitably dividing your time between work and home will lead to success.
