ROCK ISLAND | THE SHELEY TRIAL

State expects to rest today Closing arguments scheduled for Thursday BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5521

ROCK ISLAND – Prosecutors said Tuesday that today will be the final day of testimony in Nicholas Sheley’s third murder trial. The defense might not offer evidence. Closing arguments are scheduled for Thursday morning in Rock Island County court, with the jury to begin deliberations immediately after that. On June 30, 2008, Rock Falls police walked in on a gruesome crime scene at 1201 Avenue A, Apartment 5. They found four bodies: three in

The hall, walls and ceiling were spattered with blood, and in a second bedroom, near the bed, they found a bloodstained blue work shirt with the letters “A.J.” on it, a pair of khaki cargo shorts, and two Newport brand cigarette butts. A forensic scientist testified last week that the DNA found on the cigarettes matched Sheley’s.

On Tuesday, Jennifer MacRitchie, another forensic scientist with the Illinois State Police, said the same thing about the blood-covered clothes: They, too, had Sheley’s DNA on them. Other blood samples from the clothes, though, showed a mixture of DNA – some of it from Ronald Randall, and some of it from Kenneth Ulve. In 2010, Sheley was convicted of murdering Randall in Galesburg. The 65-year-old’s body was found near a dumpster at a Hy-Vee 2 days after he was killed. REST CONTINUED ON A7

DIXON – A Lee County judge will rule today whether to allow past domestic battery convictions and video interviews with children as evidence in the trial of a Dixon man accused of causing his daughter’s death.

lic Defender Bob Thompson addressed Charles T. George’s domestic battery convictions and video of interviews with two children who lived with George at the time of the death. George, 36, is charged with four counts of aggravated battery of a child, and one count of aggravated domestic battery of a child, stemming from the September 2010 death of his daughter, 3-monthold Tamari George. A charge of first-degree murder against George was dropped

May 5 because it had been added to his indictment more than 120 days after his original demand for a speedy trial, Lee County State’s Attorney Anna Sacco-Miller said. George’s trial could begin in 2 weeks. Jacobson planned to review the 2010 taped interviews, which Sacco-Miller said included the children describing George hitting them. The judge will make his ruling on the evidence at 1 p.m. today. EVIDENCE CONTINUED ON A2

Conviction dates at issue EVIDENCE

CONTINUED FROM A1

The first domestic battery conviction dates back to 1998. Thompson argued that it and the others should be considered too remote to be allowed. Allowing those cases to be discussed at trial, Thompson said, would be prejudicial to the jury and remove the presumption of innocence. Sacco-Miller argued that because the convictions included a jail term, that shortened the time George was living among the general population and able to commit domestic abuse. It also, she said, showed George’s strength and motive, and that the previous domestic abuse cases were the result of him angering quickly and

being jealous. Thompson argued that since the previous convictions weren’t against children, there is less relevance. The taped interviews were with two children, both 4 years old at the time, who were living with George and his girlfriend in 2010. The interviews, done at Shining Star Children’s Advocacy Center in Dixon by a trained child interviewer, could be used if the children are unable to testify in court, Sacco-Miller said, adding that one of the children has difficulty discussing the events of Tamari’s death. Thompson didn’t argue against the video interviews, but did say he would be prepared to make an objection if it came to that during the trial.

ACCIDENT UPDATE

Others injured in motorcycle-van crash identified Lee County Sheriff’s Department says citations pending against van’s driver STAFF REPORT news@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5501

DIXON – The passenger on a motorcycle that collided Saturday with a Kreider Services van near Sublette was Michelle Kaps, 33, of Mendota, the Lee County Sheriff’s

Department said Tuesday. Kaps was taken to Mendota Community Hospital, and then to Rockford Memorial Hospital, where she is in the intensive care unit, the sheriff’s department said in a news release. The driver of the motorcycle was

killed in the collision. Citations are pending against the van’s driver, the department said. Kaps was on a motorcycle being driven by Deryle “D.J.� Nickle, 34, of Amboy, when it struck the side of a van at the Inlet Road and U.S. Route 52. Nickle was later pronounced dead at Mendota Community Hospital. According to a release

from the sheriff’s department, the motorcycle was eastbound on Route 52 about 2:20 p.m. when it hit the side of the van, which was southbound on Inlet Road with nine occupants. The traffic on Inlet has a stop sign. The traffic on Route 52 does not. Neither Nickle nor Kaps was wearing a helmet, the sheriff’s department said, and there was no immedi-

ate indication that alcohol was involved in the crash. The force of the collision tipped the van on its side, Lee County Sheriff John Varga said. According to the news release, citations are pending against Priscilla Lachat, 37, of Amboy, who was driving the van. She was treated at Mendota Community Hospital and released.

A front-seat passenger in the van, Marcia Comer, 30, of Dixon, was treated at KSB Hospital in Dixon and released. Other passengers in the van who were treated at KSB Hospital and released were Louis Huseman, Darrin Shamblin, Henry Castaneda, Fred Boettcher, Dennis Buchholz, and Joseph Holly.

f you walk through Haymarket Square, you might notice something, or a lack of something. There are no portable toilets. There were portable toilets there in the past, but they were removed recently after the Dixon farmers market was moved from the park to the riverfront. The toilets are too expensive to have in a park or location that won’t have a group of people for a long time, said Deb Carey, executive director of the Dixon Park District. In fact, it wasn’t until 10 years ago, she said, that the park district started having portable toilets in parks when there wasn’t a major event going on. The portable toilets in Haymarket Square were locked during the winter and when the farmers market wasn’t going on, Carey said, adding that she knows the availability of them is something people like to have. The park district’s budget for portable toilets is $5,500 a year, she said, and will cover the portable toilets at The Meadows, Ballou Park and E.C. Smith Park, in

Consulting interviews continue Decision could be made next month BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com    EXT

DIXON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Dixon School Board and district staff started their interview with a potential strategic planning consultant with some hashtags. Daniel Meyer, of the Urbandale, Iowa-based Reach for Excellence Educational Consultants Inc., made his pitch to head up the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategic planning during a special meeting Tuesday night. The district interviewed the first of three

candidates last week and will interview the final candidate at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s central office, 1335 Franklin Grove Road, before it will likely vote on which to hire in June. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are your hopes, your dreams, your visions? What do you want for a better tomorrow for your students, for your neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students?,â&#x20AC;? Meyer said to start his presentation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What do you want the community of Dixon to be like in the future?â&#x20AC;?

Meyer then had the School Board and district staff present to write those dreams or visions down â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as hashtags â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and grouped them together on a board. It was an example of the type of exercise he would do with a small groups of school district stakeholders, he said, if chosen to lead the strategic planning. Meyer, whose company is a one-man show, spent 34 years in education as a teacher, coach and administrator, he said, before starting his

consulting company. The timeline Meyer discussed Tuesday night could take about 18 to 20 weeks, he said, and includes small meetings with stakeholders, rather than large groups. Throughout his timeline, Meyer said he would have discussions and reviews with the School Board and was interested in keeping some of the strategic planning task force members, who had reviewed the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facilities for about 8 months, involved in the process.

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

Speaker strives to keep House caucus in step Most willing to toe the line; some reluctant

The Senate won the House-Senate softball game this year, even though senators didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to quite get the concept of team unity. Former Sen. Rickey Hendon, D-Chicago, would usually deliver a rousing pep talk before the game to get the senators wound up for the contest. It was something along the line of, Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all work together to beat the House. Without Hendon, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;pep talkâ&#x20AC;? degenerated into some senators taking mild pot shots at each other. It was topped by Sen. Mattie Hunter, D-Chicago, telling Sen. Matt Murphy, R-Palatine, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you play this time, make sure you walk off the field instead of being carried off.â&#x20AC;? Murphy suffered a knee injury in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game and had to be carted to the hospital in an ambulance.

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an old Statehouse saying that House Speaker Michael Madigan cares mostly about two votes that each Democratic legislator makes: One to re-elect him speaker, the other for his chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operating rules. Some, like Rep. Elaine Nekritz, have gotten away with voting against Madiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rules. Nekritz explained to Madigan why she voted against them, and he was impressed with her thoughtfulness. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s since moved up the ladder to become one of the Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most hard-working members who carries some major legislation. But nobody ever gets away with voting against Madigan for speaker. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question that Democrat Will Guzzardi ran a highly effective outsider campaign against state Rep. Toni Berrios, D-Chicago, earlier this year. Guzzardi soundly defeated Rep. Berrios, the daughter of Joe Berrios, Cook County Democratic Party chairman, and along the way told the Chicago Tribune, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The monolithic structures of power in Springfield arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing any good for anyone.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not difficult to discern whom he was talking about. The longest-serving House speaker in Illinois history is the very embodiment of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;monolithic structure of power.â&#x20AC;? So, there have been some expectations that Guzzardi might not cast his vote for Michael Madiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reelection as speaker next January. He said last week that he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet made up his mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I intend to figure out when the vote comes up,â&#x20AC;? Guzzardi said. While voting against the speaker would likely score points back home in his independent-minded district, Guzzardi said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a â&#x20AC;&#x153;tough decisionâ&#x20AC;? because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lot hinging on it.â&#x20AC;? Guzzardi said he talked with Madiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief of staff, Tim Mapes, after the primary. Mapes congratulated him and said that the speaker hoped to sit down with him after the general election.

They give us laughter and love, but the Lord God gives you life and love everlasting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth in me hath everlasting life.â&#x20AC;? (John 6:47) â&#x20AC;&#x153;But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us.â&#x20AC;? (Ephesians 2:4)

â&#x20AC;&#x153;WEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;VE GOT TO FIGURE out what sort of relationship weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have,â&#x20AC;? Guzzardi said, adding: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a good one. I want to get stuff done.â&#x20AC;? Those last two lines are probably the most important, and telling. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty decent bet that Guzzardi can have a good relationship with Madigan and get things done for his district only if he votes for Madigan. I reached out to Guzzardi because Madiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

STATEHOUSE INSIDER

Budget picture clear as mud House hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t squared income with spending SPRINGFIELD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; With just [a few] days left before the scheduled adjournment of the General Assembly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all becoming clear. House Democrats voted to pass a budget that spends nearly $38 billion and avoids cuts to state programs. However, they are also fiscal conservatives, so most of them refuse to extend the taxes needed to pay for all of that spending. Since they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support the revenue, those same Democrats were given a chance to vote for a $34 billion budget that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require extending the temporary tax increase. However, it cut state spending, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually a bad idea to spend money you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have. Alas, the Democrats wanted even less to do with that than they did with the tax extension. (No, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not including the Republicans in this, because it appears they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want anything to do with anything in terms of the budget.) In summary, the Democrats donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to cut the budget, and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to raise revenue, and they expect to have a budget finished in [a few] days. OK, so it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so clear after all.

.OHARDCHOICES And then there was the No Hard Choices Caucus. That would include lawmakers who voted for the big spending plan, wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t vote to extend the income tax increase to pay for it, and also voted against the spending cuts that would result in a balanced budget with the tax hike revenue gone. No doubt their campaign brochures this fall will be a riot as they explain how they voted to increase funding for stuff like education, fought painful budget cuts to human services, and all the while bravely held the line on taxes. Hopefully they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it all in the same brochure, or the thing might self-combust.

1UOTABLEQUOTE â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are leaving because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at the prospect of Rauner as the governor.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; House Speaker Michael Madigan, responding to a statement from Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner that people are leaving Illinois because of high taxes.

7ARDROBEISSUE Most overrated folderol of the week was Rauner (gasp) shaking hands with a motorcycle enthusiast who had a Confederate flag sewn on his jacket. It was part of a Chicago television profile of Rauner. It showed Rauner, a motorcycle rider, at a meeting of ABATE, the group that lobbies on behalf of motorcycle riders. At one point, he is seen shaking the hand and slapping the arm of a member who has the Confederate flag on his jacket sleeve. Bruce Obviously, Rauner then, RaunRepublican er endorses candidate for governor the Confedshook bikerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eracy and hand, but all it stood bikerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attire has drawn fire. for. Or so implied the Quinn campaign and other top Democrats who immediately demanded Rauner apologize for shaking the hand of someone with a Confederate flag on his jacket. Still, this provides a valuable lesson for all political candidates. When someone sticks out a hand to shake yours, absolutely do not grasp it until you have conducted a thorough search of the wardrobe to ensure it does not contain any symbols that are deemed offensive.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;

The Democrats donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to cut the budget, and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to raise revenue, and they expect to have a budget finished in [a few] days.

Democratic Majority PAC is hosting a meet and greet event with the speakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top targeted candidates this month. Rep. Jaime Andrade, D-Chicago, is the only incumbent on the list, but he was appointed to the seat. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attending despite the fact that he has a hugely Democratic district. The list also includes Carol Ammons, a Democrat who defeated Madiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice, Sam Rosenberg, in the Champaign County-area district currently represented by House Democratic Speaker Rep. Naomi Michael Madigan Jakobsson. Ammons It takes patience, used Madipersuasion ganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backing to keep his caucus in line. to bludgeon Rosenberg. Apparently, fences have been mended. But there are a couple of big holes in the list of meet-and-greet attendees. Most notable is Guzzardi, who said he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t invited to the event. ANOTHER ABSENCE worth noting is Mo Khan, who defeated the establishmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pick in the 20th House District. Democrat Jerry Acciari was seen by some as a Democratic â&#x20AC;&#x153;lay downâ&#x20AC;? candidate against Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only Republican state legislator, Rep. Michael McAuliffe. Acciari was backed by the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 41st Ward, which sent out fliers using Khanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original first name of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mohamed,â&#x20AC;? even though his legal and ballot name is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mo.â&#x20AC;? Khan ended up winning, but Madigan hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet expressed his support. By the way, Rep. McAuliffe was one of the few Republicans who voted for Madiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolution last week to put a minimum wage increase referendum on the November ballot. So, is Madigan dissing Guzzardi and Khan? Madiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesman said they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t invited because candidates who face no real opposition in November were left off the list. So, why, then, was Rep. Andrade invited? Andrade has a solidly Democratic district, after all. Well, Andrade is an appointed legislator, I was told, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why he was invited. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit of a stretch, but at least it shows that the Madigan folks arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t publicly going out of their way to be hostile to Guzzardi. But fully embracing him could be a problem during the spring session.

ROCKFORD

Reinventing himself Designer, 76, launching new educational toy BY JENNIFER WHEELER Rockford Register Star

ROCKFORD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mel Crooks is getting another chance at making his dream of having an educational geometric toy in every home and classroom come true. The Rockford designer and inventor is launching his toy, Delta Flex Domes and Spheres â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a set of 1-by-8-inch bendable strips pieced together with brass fasteners â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to teach about shapes. He patented the invention in 1979 and 1980 with the intention of selling his product. He put his vision on hold for decades, though, to spend time with his family and focus on his different businesses. But he said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never too late. Even at age 76. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Domes and spheres are pretty hard to put together. I found a way to simplify it,â&#x20AC;? Crooks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea is that it comes with all of the pieces, and you put it together into different shapes.â&#x20AC;?

An idea born Crooks had just finished his design degree at the Second American Bauhaus at Southern Illinois University in 1962 when he was drafted into the Army. He quickly learned that the government could put a designer

Completed shapes built from Delta Flex Domes and Spheres adorn Mel Crooksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home in Rockford. The Rockford designer and inventor is launching his toy, a set of 1-by-8-inch bendable strips pieced together with brass fasteners, to teach about shapes. in the military, but the military couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take the designer out of him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just got out of school and being a designer, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a free thinker. Being in the military, they do a lot of the thinking for you,â&#x20AC;? Crooks said. He started putzing around with wet, wooden coffee sticks to create different triangular shapes. The creative activity helped keep him occupied during his 2 years of service. Crooks knew his design had potential, but he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have time to promote it, with a wife and child at home. Time slowly slipped away from him. But he agreed to take another stab at getting his toy on shelves

when his second wife died 2 years ago. This time, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got the support of friends and family to get the invention in stores later this year. John Stukel, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helping market the toy, said he was a bit apprehensive when he first learned about Crooksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; vision. But as Crooks started to explain how spheres and domes make up virtually every creative design, he was hooked. Stukel started researching the figures on the Internet, wanting to know more about these shapes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be a disaster if he had this great idea and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t share it with anyone,â&#x20AC;? Stukel said.

Looking forward Crooks has created a workshop in his home, using different rooms to cut strips, spray-paint material and assemble kits. He plans to roll out his toy later this year, complete with an educational booklet to illustrate how to make these shapes. But, for now, he will focus on educating students about geometric shapes. He recently led Hiawatha School District students in Kirkland through a hands-on activity teaching them about these intricate shapes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I can teach kids, then I can teach anyone,â&#x20AC;? Crooks said.

Holly Sheley scheduled to testify today REST

CONTINUED FROM A1

On Tuesday in court, Sheleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister, Heidi Sheley, testified that on June 28, around 7 p.m., she got a phone call from her brother asking where his wife, Holly, was. She said she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. Randall is believed to have been killed between 8 and 8:30 that night â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just hours before four people were ambushed and brutally murdered in their Rock Falls apartment: Ulve, 25; Brock Branson, 29; his girlfriend, Kilynna Blake; and her 2-year-old son, Dayan. After killing them, prosecutors say, Sheley met up with Holly, and the two drove around in the truck Sheley had stolen from Randall. During Heidiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s testimony Tuesday, she said that about 1 a.m. on June 29, Holly knocked on a window. Holly needed to borrow a pair of jeans, Heidi explained, because hers were covered in blood. Prosecutors say that some time after that, Nicholas Sheley drove to St. Louis. Holly is scheduled to testify today.

The rest of testimony Tuesday followed Sheley as he made his way from St. Louis to Festus, Missouri, where he is charged with killing two more people, an Arkansas couple â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tom and Jill Estes, 54 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; before driving back to St. Louis. Before court Tuesday, Sheleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense attorney, Jeremy Karlin, asked for a mistrial, because Judge Jeffrey Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor had fallen asleep twice Friday while surveillance video was being shown to the jury. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor denied Karlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request. When this trial concludes, Sheley will head to court in Missouri, where he could face the death penalty. Illinois does not have a capital punishment law. Sheley is charged with 15 counts of firstdegree murder in the t h e f o u r Rock Falls deaths. He already is serving two life sentences for the Galesburg killing and for the murder of Russell Reed, 93, of Sterling.

Keeping it chill on the grill

MCT News Service photos

Tropical chicken should be a staple on every summer cookout menu.

Summer tradition a simple way to get big flavors out of all types of food BY DANIEL NEMAN MCT News Service

S

ome of us grill throughout the year, happily tending to the flames and the food as flakes of snow fall from the night sky and sizzle on the grate. For people who are slightly more sane, though, the grilling season began over Memorial Day weekend. As of 2012, some 71 percent of all Americans who own grills (and 80 percent of us do) were expected to use them on Memorial Day, according to the folks at Weber Grills. There is something primal about grilling, the combination of flame and raw meat (or vegetable, fruit or even pizza) that tugs at the caveman within and makes us feel unified with our wild ancestors. It awakens inside us the satisfaction felt by early man after a successful hunt, knowing they would be well fed for several days. And not to belabor the point, but grilling also happens to be delicious. Flame, fat and food. It is cooking at its most elemental. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a simple way to get big flavors out of food. And that might explain why, when we grill, we tend to grill foods that are easy and require little preparation. The most commonly grilled foods are hot

Grilling season is here. This terrorized steak involves creating a paste of fresh rosemary, fresh marjoram, plenty of garlic, olive oil, salt, two kinds of pepper and cognac.

A grilled chocolate marmalade sandwich is a great summer treat for when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling indulgent. dogs, hamburgers and steak, in that order. Each is easy. None requires much work or thought at all. Each is adequate in its own way, but nothing special. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to talk about any of them. Except steak. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to talk about steak. Before that, though, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s begin with chicken. Throughout the South is a fast-food chain called Pollo Tropical. With its Cuban-inspired flavors, it may be my favorite fast food anywhere. Grilled chicken, which is served with rice and beans, is the signature dish. The chicken is

clearly marinated in some combination of citrus juices, but after eating it several times, I still didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what they were. That was before the invention of the Internet. I know now, or at least suspect, that they marinate their chicken in a combination of pineapple juice and bitter orange juice. And therein lay a problem. Bitter orange juice is not impossible to find here, but it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy, either. So we simply substituted two parts of lime juice and one part of orange juice for the bitter orange. That may sound like an awful lot of lime juice,

but apparently bitter orange juice is, in fact, quite bitter. I made it, and I grilled it, and you cannot argue with the result: a bright and lively citrus flavor that perfectly accompanies the chicken and the light char from the grill. And it is not bitter at all. One of the meats that best takes to grilling is lamb; it is hugely popular around much of the world. Basically, any countries that have lambs

grill them. So knowing how much lamb is grilled all around the Mediterranean Sea, a couple of years ago I created a dish using primarily Mediterranean flavors that I (not very creatively) called Mediterranean Lamb. Olive oil, of course, formed the base, and because onions go well with lamb, I sliced an entire onion. Garlic was a given, and I added cumin, which is frequently used along the eastern part of the Mediterranean. And then, for a bit of a bite, I added a bit of unMediterranean ginger. I marinated the lamb in this mixture overnight, though you could

marinate it for as little as 2 hours, and it would still be great. The spices remain subtle, serving only to highlight the flavor of the grilled lamb. About that steak: My favorite way of making steak in the whole world comes from a cookbook put out by the San Francisco restaurant Rose Pistola. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called terrorized steak, and it involves creating a paste of fresh rosemary, fresh marjoram, plenty of garlic, olive oil, salt, two kinds of pepper and cognac. You have to respect any recipe that uses a splash or two of cognac. CHILL CONTINUED ON A10

Some grilling recipes to try out this summer are terrorized steak and Mediterranean lamb.

Grilling corn â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ridiculously easyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; CHILL

CONTINUED FROM A9

This recipe is sublime; you get a powerfully flavorful piece of meat with a superb outer char and a hearty, perfectly cooked interior. I have made the dish many times to wonderful effect, so naturally on my last trip to San Francisco, I stopped in at Rose Pistola specifically to try its own version of terrorized steak. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t terrible. It was just disappointing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had worse steaks, THOUGHNOTMANY7HATever they did to it, they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t follow the recipe in their own cookbook, because that stuff is awesome. A well-grilled piece of meat, of course, deserves a well-grilled vegetable. Asparagus is always appropriate, but I have been eating so much asparagus lately that I reached instead for the old reliable, grilled corn. Grilling corn is ridiculously easy. Soak corn, still in its husk, in water for at least 15 minutes. Place on a grill. Cook

until done. Eat carefully â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hot â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and savor the deep, nutty flavor that comes from the grill. And because the grill was still hot, I decided to grill a dessert. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I made up the idea of a grilled chocolate-and-marmalade sandwich. I believe I read about it some years ago, but I had wanted to make one for some time. Simply spread marmalade liberally on one slice of bread, and cover with an ounce or so of chocolate. Top with another slice of bread, brush both sides with a little melted butter, and place on the grill. Cook on both sides until you get lovely grill marks on the bread and the melted chocolate starts oozing out from the center. The melted chocolate blends with the marmalade â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it is not unlike a chocolate-covered orange peel, but a little sweeter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it all mixes with the unmistakably toasty flavor of grilled bread. It is so good, you just might want to skip the meat and the vegetables altogether.

trong muscles, healthy bones, flexibility, and body weight are all good indicators of physical fitness, but have you ever considered how important good balance is to your quality of life? Having good balance means you are able to control and maintain your bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position while you are moving and/or sitting or standing still. Good balance helps you walk and climb stairs without staggering or tripping, and to get up from a chair without falling. Some balance disorders are caused by problems in the inner ear. Others might involve the brain or the heart. High blood pressure is one example of a heart-related problem that might cause you to feel dizzy. Aging, infections, head injury, some drugs, or problems with blood circulation might also result in balance problems. Use of alcohol affects balance, too. Symptoms that might indicate problems with

your balance include: feeling unsteady on your feet; feeling as if the room is spinning; feeling as if you are moving when you are sitting or standing still; feeling light-headed or faint; blurred vision; or feeling disoriented. If you have any of these symptoms, you should discuss them with your doctor. Your diet and lifestyle can help you manage some balance-related problems. There are also exercise programs that can help to improve balance. For example, Tai Chi has been shown to be beneficial. You can also do some simple balance exercises on your own. Here are two that you can try: s3TANDONONEFOOT

with one hand resting on something solid like a chair, countertop or the wall. Hold for 10-15 seconds. Repeat this 10-15 times, and then switch to the other foot and do the same. As it becomes easier, you can hold the position for longer periods of time. s7ALKINASTRAIGHT line, placing one foot directly in front of the other, with toe and heel almost touching. Hold hands out to the side and look straight ahead. If possible, walk next to a wall or counter, so that you can touch it if you start to wobble. For safety, you should do these with someone nearby. Once you have mastered these exercises, you can make them more challenging by closing your eyes. You can also gradually reduce the amount of pressure you are using to rest your hand. Good balance is important to help you get around, stay independent, and carry out daily activities. Most importantly, good balance can help you to avoid injury.

There is always an exception

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

This week we are studying “finessing against partner” by third hand. This happens when that defender plays a card lower than his highest. This was the rule I gave yesterday: When dummy has one honor, third hand holds a higher honor, and dummy plays low, (normally) third hand saves his honor when he can insert a nine or higher. However, as you know, there always seem to be exceptions to the rule. The most common is highlighted by today’s deal. South is in four spades. West leads the club three. What should happen? North made a game-invitational limit raise, promising at least four-card spade support with 10-12 support points

(high-card points plus shortsuit points) and eight losers (here, two spades, one heart, two diamonds and three clubs). South has just enough to try for the game bonus.

West’s normal lead is a low club. It is true that if this saves declarer a guess in the suit, a trump start would probably have been safer. But usually it is better to defend actively, not passively. If East puts in his club nine at trick one, declarer will win with his 10 and drive out the spade ace. East can then return a low club, but South will put up his king, knowing that West wouldn’t lead away from an ace at trick one. Declarer would lose only one spade, one heart and one club. Let’s go back to the first trick and have East win it with his club ace, then lead back the nine (the higher of two remaining cards). Now South must lose one spade, one heart and two clubs. © 2014 UFS

STERLING – When runs are at a premium, defense becomes paramount. Tuesday’s Class 3A Sterling Regional first-round baseball game at Gartner Park was a prime example of that. The Sterling Golden Warriors committed just one error and made up for it with several nice plays in the field. The Dixon Dukes committed three errors, and that led to four unearned runs in Sterling’s 6-2 victory. “This game was indicative of how things have gone for us this season,” Dixon coach Sam Gallucci said. “We got runners on base but didn’t score, and when you’re not scoring runs, you have to play a perfect game to make up for it. We didn’t play a perfect game tonight, and Sterling made some real good plays in the field.” DEFENSE CONTINUED ON B5

Morrison senior Ryan Mayberry started his track career as a distance runner, but through a few twists in the road, he is finishing it at the 1A state meet as a sprinter.

ROCK FALLS – Sterling coach Becki Edmondson was glad that the storms that swept through the Sauk Valley on Tuesday afternoon were out of the way in time for Warriors’ regional semifinal against Dixon. See, the top-seed at the 3A Rock Falls Regional is a creature of habit. The last thing Edmondson wanted to see was a disruption to the routine. Instead, the game started as scheduled, and so did the Warriors’ bats in a 13-0, five inning win over the Duchesses. Sterling advances to Saturday’s championship game at 1 p.m. when they will meet the winner of today’s game between Rock Falls and Mendota. ROUTINE CONTINUED ON B3

Mayberry file

At one point in his track and field career, Ryan Mayberry seemed earmarked to be a top-flight distance runner. As a Morrison eighth grader, he set school records in the 800 and 1,600 in the first year he was out for organized track. He went to the Illinois Elementary School Association state meet in both events. As a high school athlete, however, his performances leveled off. He was a solid runner as a freshman and sophomore, but nothing too spectacular came his way. That all changed midway through his junior year, at the Clinton Classic. Morrison head coach Scott Rickels put Mayberry in the 400, and he responded with a time just above 52 seconds. “He was like, ‘All right, you’re almost at state time, so you’re going to run that because you’re a lot better at sprints than the long distance stuff,’” Mayberry said. Mayberry went on to qualify for the state meet as a junior in the 400. He ran a 52.56

School: Morrison Class: Senior FYI: Former distance runner is now top sprinter for Mustangs. ... State qualifier in the 100, 200 and 400 dashes. ... Will attend college at Western Illinois University (Moline campus) this fall. in the first preliminary, finishing seventh among eight runners. During the summer of 2013, Mayberry hit the weights to better prepare himself for football season, but it was also with an eye toward becoming a more conventional sprinter when track season rolled around. The 6-foot-3 Mayberry now packs 160 pounds on his frame, which may not seem like too much, but it is 20 pounds heavier than he was as a sophomore and a full-time distance runner. Now, he almost always stands out at the starting line, especially for the 100, which is usually filled with shorter, more powerful athletes. CURVES CONTINUED ON B3

SOFTBALL | 1A PEARL CITY SECTIONAL | AMBOY 13, HIAWATHA 0, 5 INN.

Eleven, no need for seven Big inning advances Amboy to final in five innings BY PATRICK MASON pmason@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5550

PEARL CITY – Amboy right fielder Delaney Wilhelm spent all of the first, and most of the second inning watching Hiawatha pitcher Alexis Ross. Ross was a fast worker on the mound, and liked to throw the ball once her catcher tossed it back. She had a quick delivery to the plate, but didn’t have much velocity on her pitches. And that was the issue. After facing hard-throwing pitchers in their conference throughout the season, the Clippers were tasked with figuring out the soft-tossing Alex T. Paschal/apaschal@saukvalley.com righty, which they eventually did in a 13-0 win Amboy’s Destinee Oenes slides into home safely against over Hiawatha in the 1A Pearl City Sectional Hiawatha during an 11-run fourth inning Tuesday at the 1A Pearl semifinal. The Amboy batters were patient, and waited City Regional. Amboy won 13-0 in five innings.

The other four hitters walked before Wilhelm, hitting from the No. 9 spot, solved Ross. “She was a slower pitcher,” Wilhelm said. “It took us a couple innings to make the adjustments we need to make.” ELEVEN CONTINUED ON B6

Rude, Mayberry good rivals CURVES

CONTINUED FROM B1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was crazy,â&#x20AC;? Mayberry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was stronger than I ever was, but I was tall and lean. Those guys were just huge, and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how I stood a chance against those guys. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really run the 100 that [junior] year, because they just had so much power, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just get blown out of the water.â&#x20AC;? This year, Mayberry has run as a fast as a windaided 10.93 seconds in the 100, in the preliminaries at the Three Rivers Meet. That blazing time was due in part to a fast start out of the blocks, an area in which he readily admits is not his strong suit. With his height, it takes Mayberry a while to get going, and he often finds himself playing catchup. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t train to be a sprinter until last

summer, putting himself at a disadvantage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think if I would have lifted more and did more legwork, that would have definitely helped my start a lot,â&#x20AC;? Mayberry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard for me to get out quick.â&#x20AC;? Rickels has seen improvement in that area, however, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a matter of gaining experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of it is just repetition, getting used to doing the same thing over and over, and then just being patient for the gun,â&#x20AC;? Rickels said. Mayberry has run as fast as 22.42 in the 200, and 50.49 in the 400. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll run all three sprints at the state meet preliminaries on Thursday in Charleston, and while he thinks he has a fighting chance to make the finals in all three, he noted the 400 is likely his best shot. His long strides, as well as endurance left over

from his days as a distance runner, make that his best race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The shorter guys, when they run the 400, they have to take a lot more steps than I do,â&#x20AC;? Mayberry said. One of those shorter guys is Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brady Rude, a powerfully-built sophomore who fits the traditional mold of a sprinter. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the gold standard among small-school sprinters in the area this season, and Mayberry has been right there with him. At the Three Rivers Meet, Rude won the 100 and 200 by a combined .06 of a second. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We both like to push each other,â&#x20AC;? Mayberry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get out, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be ahead of him, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play catchup and pass me at the end. Or heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be ahead of me, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to catch up to him. I think we both push each other to run our best times.â&#x20AC;?

Warriors hit three homers in win ROUTINE

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing that I was most happy about is how comfortable we were today at the plate,â&#x20AC;? Edmondson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With it being the regional, and with the weather being goofy, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be nervous.â&#x20AC;? Edmondson even reminded the team of the importance of being ahead early, noting last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regional game between Morrison and Erie-Prophetstown that was stopped in the sixth inning because of lightning. Morrison was ahead, and later declared the winner by the IHSA, who said the teams could not continue playing the next day. Emily McDonald seemed to find a routine of her own against the Duchesses. The junior outfielder clubbed home runs to left field to lead off both the second and third innings against Dixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beccah Jones. She popped out in her third at bat off reliever Erin Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just seeing the ball really well,â&#x20AC;? said McDonald, who was wearing contacts that colored her eyes red. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It made it hard not to get too excited during that third time up.â&#x20AC;? Karlie Mellott also got in the home run mode, blasting a two-run shot in the third inning. Dixon (8-24) had a promising start against Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freshman hurler Lexy Staples. After Smith grounded out, Daytona Geesey ripped a double that bounced to the centerfield fence. Geesey was stranded there after a strikeout and groundout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought we made some good contact at times,â&#x20AC;? Dixon coach Chris Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not as much as they did, but we still had some good swings.â&#x20AC;? Dixon had one other hit in the game, a single by Ally Jacobson in the fifth off of reliever Cheyenne

Beccah Jones pitched three innings, allowing 13 runs (10 earned) with no strikeouts and two walks. Smith held the Warriors scoreless in the fourth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I put this loss on me,â&#x20AC;? Chris Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We debated about who should start, and who should come in to relieve. We went with Beccah, and we hoped to get her through the lineup twice. But, they started timing her quickly, and I should have got her out of there quicker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my fault, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much more to say than hopefully we can come back next year stronger.â&#x20AC;?

California dreaminâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Triple Crown club may be gaining one member BY BETH HARRIS !02ACING7RITER

Patrice Wolfson is ready to give up her title as the co-owner of the last Triple Crown winner. She will get the chance, if California Chrome is successful in his bid to join Affirmed and 10 other horses atop racingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pinnacle. No horse since Affirmed in 1978 has swept the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes. Since then, 11 have won the first two legs, only to fail in the 1.5-mile Belmont, the longest and most grueling of the three races that are run over a 5-week span. Wolfson and other connections of Triple Crown winners believe this may be the year they get to induct another member into their exclusive club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You just like to see a great horse win it, and I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got the potential to be a great horse, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be cheering for him,â&#x20AC;? Wolfson said Tuesday by phone from New York. Wolfson, who owned Affirmed with her late husband Louis, will be at Belmont Park on June 7. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be joined by others with ties to Triple Crown winners, including 92-year-old Penny Chenery, who owned 1973 champion Secretariat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this horse can win the Triple Crown, I want to be there,â&#x20AC;? Chenery said from her home in Boulder, Colo. The jockeys who rode the last three Triple Crown winners will be at Belmont, too: Steve Cauthen (Affirmed), Jean Cruget (Seattle Slew) and Ron Turcotte (Secretariat). The 1970s produced three Triple Crown winners, with Secretariat

Li Na returns the ball to Kristina Mladenovic on Tuesday during a first-round match of the French Open at Roland Garros Stadium in Paris. The second-seeded Li lost in three sets.

Liâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early loss a major upset Wawrinka, Wozniacki also beaten BY HOWARD FENDRICH !03PORTS7RITER

PARIS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Much to her dismay, Li Na is familiar with this feeling. She earns a Grand Slam championship, is heralded at home, then shows up at subsequent major tournaments and forgets how to win. Happened in 2011, after her French Open triumph made her Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first player with a Grand Slam singles title. Happened again Tuesday, when Li was seeded second at Roland Garros but lost to someone ranked 103rd in the first round, not quite 4 months removed from winning the Australian Open. Her 7-5, 3-6, 6-1 exit against Kristina Mladenovic of France in front a partisan crowd on a cloudy, windy Day 3 came about 16 hours after the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Australian Open champion, third-seeded Stan Wawrinka, was beaten in Paris â&#x20AC;&#x201C; making this French Open already unlike any Grand Slam

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first time that the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s singles champions from the previous major lost in the first round. This French Open has seen some rough going for several past major champions and other highly seeded players, and the second round has yet to begin. No. 13 Caroline Wozniacki, the 2009 U.S. Open runner-up, was beaten Tuesday, less than a week after her planned wedding to golf star Rory McIlroy was called off; No. 11 Grigor Dimitrov, considered an up-and-coming threat, lost to Ivo Karlovic; and two seeded men, No. 16 Tommy Haas and No. 21 Nicolas Almagro, quit during the first set because of injuries.

It lived up to the hopes and expectations of everybody.â&#x20AC;? At 3-5, Affirmed was the last odds-on favorite to win the Belmont. California Chrome figures to be a low price, too, just like in the Preakness, where he was the overwhelming favorite. Cauthen has watched California Chrome from afar, and the chestnut colt reminds him of Affirmed. Cauthen and his horse got along well, and he sees California Chrome and jockey Victor Espinoza doing the same. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a lot of options with him. The horse seems to settle wherever he wants him, and can pick up in an instant,â&#x20AC;? said Cauthen, who runs a breeding operation in Verona, Ky. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This horse has got a great chance of

Turner had his hands full with Seattle Slew, describing the colt as â&#x20AC;&#x153;an absolute monster.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;All he wanted to do was train. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t loveydovey,â&#x20AC;? Turner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you trained him, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d settle right down. My biggest concern with him was trying to figure out how to get him settled down enough to go a mile and a half in the Belmont.â&#x20AC;?

Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense actually kick-started its offense, instead of the other way around, as is usually the case. After center fielder Nick McGuireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sliding catch on Riley Mehrensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sinking line drive to end the top of the fourth inning, the Warriors (9-18-1) tied the score at 1 in the bottom of the frame. Two innings later, with Sterling now leading 4-2, McGuireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s running, over-the-shoulder catch again robbed Mehrens, this time of a run-scoring hit. McGuire, who was shading Mehrens to pull to left-center, sprinted into rightcenter field and tracked down the hit to keep Angelo Valdes from scoring from third. Sterling then ended the game with an aroundthe-horn double play to eliminate any comeback attempt by Dixon (8-22-1) in the top of the seventh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we got down a run early on, it felt like our energy dropped to the floor,â&#x20AC;? Sterling coach Nick Pepper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But after we made a couple of plays in the field, the energy picked up again, and we started putting the ball in play and putting pressure on their defense.â&#x20AC;? Through the first three innings, Dixon starter Cal Jarrett (4-4) allowed just one hit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bryant Lillyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s double â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and struck out three without a walk. He started the fourth with another strikeout, then his first walk of the game came back to bite him when Keegan

Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brady Siegmund reaches first base just after Dixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Connor Sperling catches the ball during Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3A Sterling Regional game at Gartner Park. The Warriors won 6-2, to advance to todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s semifinal with Rock Falls. Wellman reached on a two-out throwing error on a grounder to short, plating Brady Siegmund. But Dixon, who scored first when Jarrettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s twoout single drove in Mehrens in the top of the third, re-took the lead right away with A.J. Murdockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sacrifice fly to plate Ryan Dixon in the top of the fifth. Sterling had the answer, though, with three unearned runs in the bottom of the fifth. Frankie Perino singled with one out, then went to second on Brandon Dennisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bunt single. Turner Morse followed with another bunt, but as Jarrett fielded it and started to throw to first for the out, his feet slipped out from under him. As he was going to his knees, the throw sailed over the first basemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head and down the right field fence line,

allowing Perino and Dennis to score, and putting Morse on third. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought I could still make the throw from my knees, but it was a dumb play on my part,â&#x20AC;? Jarrett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I shouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been thinking about saving the throw and not giving away any runs, but I was only thinking about getting an out no matter what.â&#x20AC;? Jarrett then struck out Siegmund, but Lilly reached on a fielding error at third, allowing Morse to cross the plate for a 4-2 Sterling lead. After that, Siegmund (2-4), who had come on in relief of starter Lilly, pitched around some potential trouble, thanks to that stellar defense. Valdes walked with one out in the sixth, then stole second and went to third on Nate Grockeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flyout to right. But McGuireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s running catch stopped

that potential rally, then Perino ripped a two-out RBI triple and scored on a double-steal in the bottom of the sixth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first earned runs of the game. In the seventh, the Dukes now trailing 6-2, Connor Sperling walked and Jarrett chopped an infield single, both with one out. But Perino snagged Murdockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grounder to third and erased courtesy runner Owen Van Horn at second, with the relay getting Murdock by a step at first to cement the victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just came in and wanted to throw strikes, which is how I approach every relief situation,â&#x20AC;? Siegmund said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice as a pitcher knowing that your defense is making plays behind you, because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not as afraid to be aggressive, try and get ahead in

the count. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a really positive attitude all game in the dugout and on the field, and when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having fun and everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting excited, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when we play our best baseball.â&#x20AC;? With the momentum shifting away from them in the slow-paced game, the Dukes couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it back. Afterward, Gallucci and his players could only look back at the chances they had in the first three innings to capitalize when the momentum was in their favor, and seize control of the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had guys at second and third, and even loaded the bases [in the third inning], and we only got one run out of it,â&#x20AC;? Jarrett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to do a better job of getting guys in when we get them on base, because that takes the pressure off your defense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it was tough, because Sterling was making some good plays in the field, and we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to hit a line drive or get a fly ball to fall when it wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve given us the boost we needed.â&#x20AC;?

Lance Lynn threw a five-hit shutout in his first career complete game, and the St. Louis Cardinals got home runs from Allen Craig and Matt Holliday in a 6-0 victory over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night at Busch Stadium. Holliday and Matt Adams had three hits and an RBI apiece, and Craig drove in two runs in the interleague matchup. The Cardinals have won 10 of 13, shaking off a 12-inning loss in the series opener, and ended the Yankeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; three-game road winning streak that matched their best of the year. David Phelps (1-2) pitched in his hometown for the first time, and allowed three earned runs in six innings. Two infield errors contributed to two unearned runs in the Cardinalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; breakout four-run third. Derek Jeter got a standing ovation before each at-bat, just like in the opener. He was 0-for-3 with a walk. Lynn (6-2) struck out two and walked three, topping his previous career best of eight innings on April 25, 2012, at Chicago against the Cubs. Cubs trailing: San Francisco scored two runs in the fourth, and added two more in the sixth to lead the Cubs 4-0 in the bottom of the eighth inning at press time.

After the game resumed, the Sox upped their lead by adding a run in the fifth on a Gordon Beckham solo home run. The Sox led the Indians, 2-0, in the bottom of the fifth at press time.

Westbrook heats up for Thunder Canadiens beat Lundqvist, Rangers to stay alive in NHL playoffs Russell Westbrook had 40 points and 10 assists, and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the visiting San Antonio Spurs 105-92 on Tuesday night to tie the Western Conference finals at two games apiece. It matched the second-highest playoff point total of Westbrookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career, falling short of the 43 he scored in the 2012 NBA Finals. He also had five rebounds and five steals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think I did all right. Coming out with a win is most important,â&#x20AC;? Westbrook said in a postgame interview with TNT. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just try to come out and give maximum effort. My teammates ask that of me, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I try to do on both ends of the floor.â&#x20AC;? Kevin Durant added 31 points on

11-for-22 shooting. It was his highest-scoring game of the series after the NBAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading scorer was held to a 22.7-point average in the first three games. Serge Ibaka added nine points and eight rebounds for the Thunder, who have turned around the series since he returned from an injury that was expected to keep him out for the rest of the postseason. Boris Diaw had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Tony Parker added 14 points for the Spurs, who blew a 2-0 lead against the Thunder in this round two years ago and are in danger of doing it again. San Antonio will host Game 5 on Thursday. NHL Canadiens 7, Rangers 4: Rene Bourque scored three goals, and

the Montreal Canadiens chased goalie Henrik Lundqvist and defeated the New York Rangers on Tuesday in Montreal to stave off elimination in the Eastern Conference final. The Rangers, who lead the bestof-seven series 3-2, will have another chance to earn a trip to the Stanley Cup finals in Game 6 on Thursday night in New York. Bourqueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second goal proved to be the game-winner, and came just after the Rangers came back to tie the game at 4-4 in the second period. Lundqvist was pulled in favor of Cam Talbot after allowing four goals on 19 shots. Montreal goalie Dustin Tokarski stayed in despite allowing four on his first 14.

Clippers blow game open in fourth inning ELEVEN

CONTINUED FROM B1

Wilhelm took an inside fastball to the left-center field fence for a two-run double for the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first runs, which proved to be the eventual gamewinning hit. The Clippers poured on more just two innings later and put the game out of reach in their half of the fourth, scoring 11 runs en route to the fiveinning win. The Clippers sent 15 batters to the plate in the fourth, and the first nine batters reached base safely. The offensive attack chased Ross out of the game, before Amboy went to work on the relief pitcher, Presley Fisher. Amboy rapped 11 hits as Ross allowed seven runs in her three innings of work, while Fisher allowed six runs (three earned) in the fourth. The Clippers entered the game wanting to be aggressive on the basepaths, and were able to do so throughout, stealing 10 bases. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we want to do,â&#x20AC;? said Wilhelm, who finished 3-for-3 with three RBIs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You never know what can happen when you can get the other team throwing the ball around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we have a lead, we try to be even more

Amboyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Madeline Ely smacks a double during the fourth inning of Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1A Pearl City Sectional game against Hiawatha. The Clippers won 13-0. aggressive.â&#x20AC;? The secondary leads forced throws from Hawks catcher Haley Zuberbear, but the Hiawatha defense couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle the extra pressure and made four errors in the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed to make some adjustments in the first couple innings,â&#x20AC;? Amboy coach Kelly Whitman said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we were able to do that, while not allowing a whole lot.â&#x20AC;? The lead eased the pressure off Amboy pitcher Karlee Doege, who went all five innings. She allowed one hit, and struck out seven. She didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t walk any batters, and carried a perfect game into the

fourth inning, before losing it on the leadoff hitter in the fourth, who reached on an error. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt really good out there,â&#x20AC;? Doege said. The Hawks had scored 27 runs in their previous two playoff games, but Doege doused their offensive fire. She rarely threw anything straight, and frustrated the Hawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; batters. Of her seven strikeouts, four were swinging, and none were close. Doege threw what she calls a screwball, which was on point throughout the game. The pitch looked tantalizing, like a dessert before dinner, on its way to the plate, before

turning into vegetables and no dessert, and dancing out of the zone. Her riseball was the perfect compliment, and acted as her wipeout pitch as hitters flailed wildly at it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt confident throwing both of them,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The screw was really working. I felt confident especially when I know the team is playing good behind me.â&#x20AC;? With the win, Amboy will get a chance at the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first sectional title, as they will play in the sectional final at 11 a.m. on Saturday. The Clippers will face the winner of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game between Pearl City and Orangeville.

Astrograph Increasing confidence and maturity Wednesday, May 28, 2014 As you go forward this year, your ability to trust in your capabilities will make it easier to approach others. If you state your needs in a straightforward manner, options will open up for you. Your increasing confidence and maturity will help you get what you want. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Be resolute in showing your friends and family what is expected of them and what you will do in return. Until you deal with the problems at home, they will keep growing. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not be getting the whole picture. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a decision until all the information is available. Get the facts first. A hasty choice could cost you down the road. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may see yourself heading toward adopting a different lifestyle. Find out all you can about the changes you are considering by attending a seminar relevant to your tastes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be pressured into spending money on an unknown or questionable cause. You work

too hard to lose your cash on someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whim. Say no, and be firm.

You will be able to breeze through any and all assignments that come your way. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- The creativity that has benefited your financial situation can be put to good use helping others. Offer your assistance, but be wary of taking on too many ventures at once. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Partnerships and cooperative efforts will take a lot of your energy. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t act in haste. It will require patience on your part to make things happen favorably. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Go over your projects with a fine-toothed comb before you present what you have to offer. You risk failure and disappointment if you let some careless mistake slip through your guard. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)

PUZZLE ENTHUSIASTS: Get more puzzles in -- Try brainstorming with friends who share your concerns and interests. A profitable venture can be yours if you are able to sell your plan to the right individual or organization. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Make sure that you are prepared for anything that comes along. You may have to make some adjustments to your original plans, but if you are flexible, you will achieve your goal. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You will be able to take advantage of any situation that comes your way. Friends and colleagues will be impressed by your abilities, and you will gain respect and support. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your intuition is very sharp. Have faith in what you do. Stick to your game plan and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be led astray by false promises. Follow your heart.
