City picks 3-year electricity deal Bid awarded for sewer project; city manager’s pay raise approved BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5570

STERLING – The city received a second round of bids at Monday’s council meeting and opted for a 3-year electricity aggregation deal with MidAmerican Energy.

ComEd came in with the lowest rate for the first year, but because ComEd’s rates change each May, and its second and third years are unknown, the council voted 5-1 to go with the lowest rate over the 3-year period. Based on average monthly use

of 670 kilowatt hours, Sterling’s current program with FirstEnergy costs $31.28 per month. The cost per kilowatt hour is 4.67 cents. The new deal with MidAmerican, based on the same average monthly use, would be $53.39 in the first year, $52.72 in the second year, and

$50.92 in year 3. ComEd’s first year rate, based on the same monthly use, would be $50.88 in the first year. ComEd also adds a price energy adjustment of up to 0.5 cents per kilowatt hour. ELECTRICITY CONTINUED ON A4

Citywide savings could be $880,000 Move from ComEd to Verde could pocket $160 per resident this year BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5529

DIXON – Dixon residents could save about $160 this year on their electricity bill, thanks to municipal aggregation, a commissioner said. During the election in April 2013, Dixon voters approved giving their city government the power to negotiate for lower electricity rates, which is also known as municipal aggregation.

DIXON – It was during his service in the Vietnam War that Rev. Dr. Vincent Marrandino first knew he wanted to be a chaplain. He was a psychiatric specialist then, a young man with an undergraduate degree in psychology and an interest in helping fellow humans through unimaginable pain and emotional turmoil. Troops would be evacuated, and the soldiers would step out of the planes. They’d be separated into diff e r e n t g r o u p s Rev.

Department Depending on is also full-time director of who was on the plane, he might pastoral care switch gears a little at KSB Hospital bit and work with the medics, talking to men who had lost their legs or their arms. “I kind of fell in love with doing that kind of work,” Marrandino said, sitting in the office of Dixon Police Chief Danny Langloss. “And it was amazing how the ministry was so well correlated with psychiatry.” Marrandino is the the new senior volunteer chaplain for the Dixon Police Department. He’ll head up what will eventually be a team of qualified chaplains who will work with department members, crime victims, their families, and witnesses to talk through what they’ve seen.

He’ll also provide oncall spiritual guidance, counseling, and critical stress debriefings for anyone who might need it. Marrandino is also the full-time director of pastoral care at KSB Hospital, where he’s worked for the past 13 years, after having worked at Dixon Correctional Center for 12 years. The program, the first of its kind for Dixon Police Department, was spearheaded by Officer Ryan Bivins. “I saw it as a need,� Bivins said. “As officers we deal with a lot of stress and negative things day-to-day and, just to have someone who can be there to supports us and help talk to victims and take some of the weight off our shoulders ... “When we were in Afghanistan, we had a chaplain, and that was a huge support for me.

So, these debriefings and the facilitation done by people like Chaplain Marrandino help you get those things out of you, so they don’t eat you up, and then you learn coping mechanisms. ... At

times in this profession, maybe you’re sad or you’re upset or you’re emotional and that makes you feel weak – you feel like you’re different from everybody else, but these debriefings show that you’re just like everybody else. “Everybody is going through these things. ... It helps you to move past it.�

‘Let’s Feed Our Children’ adds two towns Free summer lunch program kicks off today STAFF REPORT news@saukvalley.com    EXT

STERLING – Whiteside County United Way’s “Let’s Feed Our Children� free summer lunch program is adding two towns to its roster – Fulton and Prophetstown. It already serves Sterling, Rock Falls, Morrison and Tampico. Lunch service begins today in Sterling and Morrison, and Wednesday in Tampico, Thursday in Fulton, June 10 in Rock Falls and June 11 in Prophetstown. Days vary by town. The last lunch day is Aug. 14 in all but Proph-

etstown; there, the last day is Aug. 13. This is the 13th year the United Way, with the help of local churches and other organizations, including the Sauk Valley Food Bank, will be providing the brown bag lunches. The program is designed to supplement meals for children who get free or reduced-price lunches during the school year, but is available to anyone who needs it. No one is turned away, and no questions are asked. Last year, 33,353 lunches were served during the 12 weeks of summer. The program served just fewer than 30,000 lunches in 2012.

READYING THE RIDES IN STERLING

Parenting a challenge after time spent in jail Moms use resources to be better parents BY ANDREA AZZO aazzo@shawmedia.com 3HAW.EWS3ERVICE

DeKALB – DeKalb resident Laquanda Hernet is still learning how to be a better parent to her 4-year-old son, Coreon, after spending time in jail and struggling with alcoholism. Hernet has been free since Dec. 13 after being arrested on a charge of aggravated driving under the influence. She is living at Hope Haven in DeKalb, and using the skills she has learned at DeKalb County’s jail parenting class and the county’s drug court program for better structure. “I don’t get mad like I used to,� Hernet said. “I count to three, so [Coreon] knows mom’s not playing.� Officials say that structure is necessary to parent an increasing population of children with incarcerated mothers. A report from the U.S. Department of Justice shows the female inmate population at jails nationwide increased 10.9 percent from mid-2010 to 2013, growing by an average of about 1 percent a year from 2005 to 2013. Studies show that living without their mother can be detrimental to a children’s health and can even lead them to jail as they grow older. Children from newborns to 5-yearolds whose mothers are in jail are more susceptible to toxic stress and trauma. It can significantly change their brain chemistry and create mental health and behavioral problems, said Ann Adalist-Estrin,

director of the National Resource Center on Children and Families of the Incarcerated at Rutgers University-Camden. Adalist-Estrin said the best ways to reduce this toxic stress in young children are for the incarcerated mothers to have a responsible caregiver, tell children the truth Laquanda Hernet about their jail stay, and to keep in touch while they’re in jail. Coreon was with his father when Hernet was in jail and never saw her, restricting their communication to over the phone. Hernet and Coreon’s father share joint custody of their son. When Hernet got out of jail after about 2½ months, Coreon was shy at first. Since then, he’s become very attached. He follows Hernet everywhere, she said. Hernet faces 3 years in prison if she fails the drug court program. If she successfully finishes it, the felony aggravated DUI charge will be amended to a misdemeanor.

OBITUARIES Richard L. ‘Rich’ Hubbard DIXON – Richard L. “Rich� Hubbard, 60, of Dixon, died peacefully Friday, May 30, 2014, at his home, surrounded by close family and friends. He was born July 18, 1953, in Freeport, the son of Dorothy (Straub) and Lawrence Hubbard. He was the director of technology for Amboy Community School District 272 since 1999. He also was active in Boy Scouts of America and an avid photographer. Rich married the love of his life, Jeanette Kutz, in 1985. in Dixon. Not many people knew he was fighting for his life, from the dreaded disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s disease), per his wishes. He refused to let this disease dominate him and worked up until a few days before his death. Pity is unbearable when it’s staring you in the face. The details are now trivial when you lose in the end. Do know that he was not alone in his fight, and the time of his death was not expected by anyone. Rich took pride in everything he did. His stepfather, Bill, always told him, “It doesn’t matter what you do, just be the best at it.� He worked extremely hard, and in the end realized it was half responsible for shortening his life. One regret was not seeing a doctor sooner. Chicken soup and aspirin do not cure it all. His wife Jeanette, son Richard J. (Sarah), and grandson Richard C., were the greatest loves

in life. He just wished he had a couple more years to express the extreme pride and joy they brought to him. Also surviving him are his mother, Dorothy Shearer of Lanark; siblings, Larry (Darla) Hubbard of Lanark, Brad (Dana) Hubbard of Oregon, Sherry Hubbard of Mount Carroll, and Melvin (Becky) Hubbard of Shannon; his father, Lawrence Hubbard of Lanark; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his stepfather, Bill Shearer. Rich had a very good heart and a strong personality. Like with family, you either liked him or you didn’t. Most everyone did. He didn’t mind one way or another. That was just Rich. Call him what you want, as long as it is not “Good ol’ Boy,â€? he disliked that old clichĂŠ. Per his wishes. no funeral services will be held. He didn’t want the display. Most traditional info has been omitted, because dead or alive you knew how he felt about you. He didn’t mince words. His spirit lives on just like in his favorite song, “Spirit in the Sky.â€? Rich will be forever loved and missed, family pet, Bella, included. A celebration of Rich’s life will be July 18 at a time and place to be determined. Jones Funeral Home in Dixon is handling arrangements. A memorial has been established. Visit thejonesfh.com to send condolences.

Utility rate frozen Sewer project to prevent backups through July 2015 ELECTRICITY

SAVINGS

CONTINUED FROM A1

With an estimated 5,500 households in Dixon, the citywide savings could reach $880,000, Blackburn said, adding that the rate is frozen through July 2015 and residents who opted out of the Verde rate last year can join anytime they want. During its regular meeting Monday night, the City Council unanimously approved changes to the temporary liquor license available for Heritage Crossing on the riverfront. The most significant change allows for liquor sales to begin at 8 a.m. instead of 11 a.m., for single-day liquor licenses, which are granted by a City Council vote. The single-day license previously had parameters of 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. for sales, said City Attorney Rob LeSage. The change stemmed

from a local garden group’s interest in holding a riverfront fundraiser, which could include a breakfast with alcoholic beverages. The requested hours weren’t allowed before Monday night’s change. All temporary liquor licenses must still be approved by the City Council. The other change to the temporary liquor license ordinance replaced the Dixon Riverfront Commission as the leasee with Dixon Main Street, which took over the day-to-day operations of the riverfront in April. The City Council also approved three items relating to the Petunia Festival: temporarily closing a portion of state Route 26; regulating street traffic; and establishing the festivals boundary to allow for open alcohol containers. The 50th annual Petunia Festival will be held from July 2-6.

The city also received bids from four other suppliers, including FirstEnergy, but the rates were all higher. MidAmerican’s bid was 18 cents lower than its first-round offer. Mike Mudge, owner of Rock River Energy Services, said the first year with MidAmerican might be a wash with ComEd, but benefits are likely to be realized in years 2 and 3. “I think capacity rates will continue to go up, so I believe it’s prudent to lock in a 3-year rate with a supplier,� Mudge said. “Everyone can opt out if ComEd is cheaper later, but this gives us another option to lock into.� Alderman Barry Cox saw things differently. “I make a motion we go with ComEd and sit on the sideline for a year,� Cox said. Cox’s motion was not seconded, and Alderman John Stauter then asked Mudge what the projections looked like for rate increases.

“We do expect them to go up more in 2016, ’17 and ’18,� Mudge said. “A lot of it depends on how many coal plants are shut down. MidAmerican is about the same as ComEd this year, and it’s important to have a measuring stick for the other 2 years.� Alderman Lou Sotello made a motion to go with the 3-year deal with MidAmerican, and it was seconded by Chris Schuchard. Mayor Skip Lee said he didn’t think the city would see a lower rate if they sat out a year. “I don’t see the cost of energy going down,� Lee said. “At a minimum, it holds us stable at today’s rate, and we should be better positioned for the second and third years.� In other action, the city accepted the low bid on a sanitary sewer

project to alleviate flooding and overflow problems in the area around 19th Street and Freeport Road. The low bid of $275,195.56 came from Fischer Excavation of Freeport. City Manager Scott Shumard said the project involved putting in a new force main, or pressurized pipe, from the Hey’s Lift Station, along Freeport Road and then west down Lynn Boulevard alongside the exist-

ing force main. It will connect to an existing sanitary sewer pipe at that point. “The new force main will take all the flow from the Windsor Lift Station and bypass the Hey’s Lift Station,� Shumard said. “This should reduce the flow through the Hey’s Lift Station by more than half, and help prevent backups upstream.� Also, in executive session, the council approved a 5.9 percent raise for Shumard. His salary was bumped from $98,850 to $104,700. Lee said Shumard had not had a raise since 2008, and the city wants his pay to be competitive with other cities of similar size.

GLOBAL WARMING | FEDERAL REGULATIONS

State in ‘good position’ to change? Illinois needs to find ways to cut carbon pollution CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois should be able to meet tougher federal limits on pollutants blamed for global warming with a mixture of power sources and energy-efficiency initiatives, state officials and environmental groups said, while opponents in the state’s coal-producing regions said the proposal unveiled Monday by the Obama administration could close power plants, raise electricity rates and cost jobs. The sweeping initiative would curb carbon dioxide emitted by the nation’s power plants by 30 percent by 2030, though each state has a customized goal and the flexibility to decide how to reach that target. Illinois was given a goal of cutting emissions by 33 percent, to 1,271 pounds per megawatt hour, from 2012 levels. The nuclear industry stands to gain from the new limits, because reactors don’t emit carbon dioxide. Exelon Generation, which operates all of Illinois’ nuclear reactors, such as the one in Byron, issued a statement saying it was reviewing the draft

The Ameren Corp. coal-fired power plant is seen outside the southern Illinois town of Newton. Illinois officials say the state will need a mix of power sources and energy efficiency initiatives to meet proposed federal limits for carbon pollution. The Obama administration unveiled a plan Monday to cut carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by 30 percent by 2030. About 40 percent of Illinois’ energy comes from coal. rule and could not comment on it. “However, we are pleased that [it] ... recognizes the critical importance of supporting the continued operation of the nation’s nuclear fleet,� the statement said. State and environmental officials say Illinois is in a good position, because some of its coal-fired power plants – which emit most of the heattrapping pollutant – have

added pollution-control equipment or switched to cleaner-burning natural gas. It also has 11 nuclear reactors, renewable energy such as wind and solar power is expanding, and there are efforts to encourage energy efficiency. The EPA also will allow states to work together on regional approaches. “We think we are well situated to approach this rule,� Illinois Commerce Commission Chairman

Doug Scott told reporters last week. “We think we have a good program and will look for ways to make it better,� so it’s beneficial for the environment and the state’s economy. At the same time, he said, “We are mindful of where our power comes from in the state now and [will] find pathways to compliance.� Scott did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment Mon-

day. A phone message left with an Illinois Environmental Protection Agency spokeswoman was not immediately returned. Almost 49 percent of Illinois’ power came from nuclear and 41 percent from coal-fired power plants in 2012, according to federal statistics. Wind energy supplied about 4 percent and natural gas just under 6 percent of power. State officials also passed a bill last week that would provide millions for the Illinois Power Agency to invest in solar power. Illinois Coal Association President Phil Gonet called the EPA proposal “unfair,� saying the new rules could force power plants too old or small to be retrofitted with modern pollution controls offline, squeezing the electricity supply and ultimately raising rates. “Our predication is that you’re going to have less energy, and it’s going to cost more, be harmful to our economy and hurt poor people,� he said, adding that the initiative will do little unless big countries like China and India also curbed power plants pollution. It also could blunt a coal-mining resurgence in Illinois, Gonet warned, noting that the state’s

production grew from 34 million tons in 2010 to 52 million last year, making it the nation’s fifth-largest coal producer. He said the coal industry will mount legal challenges to the rule “every step of the way.� Environmentalists said warnings about job losses and energy shortages are overblown, because coalfired plants will have to develop cleaner technology to stay in business, while renewable energy will continue to create jobs. “Some older plants that are running like old Chevy beaters may not be economical ... [but] when the nation adopts standards that require businesses to take responsibility for the cost of pollution, engineers and innovators take over,� said Howard Learner, executive director of the Environmental Law & Policy Center. The rule is expected to be finalized next year, and is a centerpiece of Obama’s plans to tackle climate change. Initially, Obama wanted each state to submit their plans for cutting pollution to meet the new targets by June 2016. But details of the new proposal show that states could have up to two more years if they join with other states.

A veteran departs from the VA, but problems remain Chicago Tribune Editorial Board

T

he resignation of Veteran Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki on Friday should leave his Washington critics feeling hollow. Their demands have been met. He has fallen on his sword. Shinsekiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shortcomings as a bureaucrat canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tarnish his remarkable military record. Washington has plenty of bureaucrats. It has precious few people who have served their nation with such valor and dedication as Shinseki exhibited in two tours of Vietnam and the rest of his military career. His departure solves a political problem for the Obama administration, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t resolve the far more vexing problem of how to repair the hugely dysfunctional veterans health care system. The report released last week by the VAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office of Inspector General found problems systemwide in scheduling veterans for medical care and in manipulating records to hide long waits for those appointments. The investigation has expanded to 42 sites. Problems have been building at the VA for some time. Over the years, the department

Former Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki is seated before speaking at a meeting of the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans on Friday in Washington. Shinseki on Friday resigned amid widespread troubles with veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; health care. has expanded its mission and reach, opening to all veterans, not just those with service-related disabilities or low incomes. Its budget â&#x20AC;&#x201C; now more than $57 billion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has grown much faster than its patient load. So, how to recalibrate? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for a return to original principles,â&#x20AC;? former VA Secretary Anthony Principi wrote in The Wall Street Journal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those with disabilities incurred while in service â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially in combat or while training for combat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; should never again have to wait in line for health care or benefits.â&#x20AC;? Principi suggested changing the VAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s antiquated disability com-

pensation system â&#x20AC;&#x153;to develop a new framework that promotes wellnessâ&#x20AC;? and compensates veterans for injuries and diseases caused by battlefield exposure, not â&#x20AC;&#x153;the expected and ordinary effects of aging.â&#x20AC;? He wrote that the government should â&#x20AC;&#x153;seriously considerâ&#x20AC;? realigning the separate Veterans Affairs and Defense Department health care systems. A fully integrated system would provide greater purchasing power for drugs, medical supplies and equipment. Those savings could be used to improve care. The best way to ensure veterans donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t languish

on secret waiting lists is to give them greater flexibility to seek medical care through private systems when the VA canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see them soon enough. At the same time, encouraging broader access to private health care systems would allow the VA to focus on the specialized care it does best, such as treatment of traumatic injuries. Taxpayers would still pick up the tab. But the responsibilities for more veteran health care would fall on a larger number of doctors and hospitals already prepared to treat patients with many of the same health problems, minor or major, veterans encounter. Real accountability at the VA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from those who concocted and covered up secret waiting lists â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is a work in progress. Congressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rising interest in this systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failings creates a perfect time to focus on the future of care for the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s veterans. The priority should be to focus on those who most urgently need that care because of the wounds theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve suffered defending this country â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not on salvaging the government-run colossus that the VA has become while Congress writes ever bigger checks.

Mayor Burke may have forgotten he was informed of this possibility 12 months ago, and may have made no attempt to contact Cat to save jobs.

On the bright side, I suppose you could argue that last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget passed by the General Assembly will lead to the largest tax cut in Illinois history come January, when the 2011 income tax increase partially expires on schedule. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the only bright side. And, really, pretty much nobody expects that some sort of tax hike will be avoided after the election, no matter who wins come November. The new Fiscal Year 2015 budget proposal had to be based on the partial expiration of the tax hike on Jan. 1, when it will drop from 5 percent to 3.75 percent. House Democrats claim they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find enough votes to permanently extend the tax hike. But this new budget will blow close to a $6 billion hole in the following yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget, according to my own back-of-theenvelope analysis that top Senate Democrats said looked accurate to Gov. Pat them. Quinn I based New state what follows budget puts on what I him on the spot more know about than his how t h e Republican budget was challenger, crafted. But Bruce Rauner. whatever the final number ends up being, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crystal clear that whoever wins the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race will face a monstrous challenge after heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sworn in next January. Borrowing $660 million from special state funds, as this new budget does, is a one-off affair. The money is being put into the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending base and will have to somehow be replaced the following year. A 2-year repayment plan means an additional $330 million will also have to be found in the next budget, for a total hole of about a billion dollars. Using about $500 million in one-time revenue increases from this fiscal year to pay forward some bills in next fiscal year means that same $500 million will have to be found again when the next budget is crafted. Not funding employee salary and health insurance benefit cost increases kicks another $380 million down the road. So now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at $1.9 billion. AND THEN, OF COURSE, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the approximately $3.6 billion in full-year revenue lost after the income tax hike partially expires. That puts the hole around $5.7 billion. Also, state Rep. Greg Harris, chairman of a House appropriations committee, told reporters last week that the new budget

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Community discourse is the most important thing journalism does. For that to work, we need to reflect all of our community.â&#x20AC;? Mark N. Trahant, editorial page editor, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 2001

could create as much as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;couple of billionâ&#x20AC;? dollars in past-due bills in the coming fiscal year. If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accurate, then the FY16 hole becomes much, much worse, plus thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all that new debt owed to providers that will eventually have to be paid back. Not to mention that some state agencies have been given lump sum operating appropriations. Gov. Pat Quinn could conceivably try to avoid cuts before the election by putting off decisions until after the election. Doing so, of course, would blow a big hole in the second half of the coming fiscal year, which begins July 1. And that brings us to Bruce Rauner, the Republican nominee for governor. Gov. Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign has been pushing Rauner hard lately to divulge his â&#x20AC;&#x153;secretâ&#x20AC;? plan to balance the budget. The reason for that is they may have him caught in a trick bag of his own making. RAUNER HAS HINTED more than once that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to taper off the income tax hike over a period of time. But he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that now because last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legislative inaction means that most of the 2011 tax hike will automatically disappear on schedule this coming Jan. 1. Because of that legislative failure, if Rauner follows what was widely believed to be his original plan, the Republican would actually have to raise taxes in order to lower them again. Needless to say, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bet on that ever surfacing as his plan now. So, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to have to come up with a new idea. And that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easy, because, as I explained above, this â&#x20AC;&#x153;kick-the-can budgetâ&#x20AC;? has planted a multibillion-dollar nuclear time bomb that is so massive, Rauner wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t possibly be able to simply cut his way out of it. The other option is to do what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing now: Refuse to answer any questions about his secret plan. But after promising for a year and a half to deliver one, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to find himself dogged on the campaign trail from now on if he tries to stay mum. Either way, though, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Quinn who has the most problems. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to deal with a big budgetary hole during the campaign while attempting to persuade voters to re-elect him so that he can try, once again, to raise their taxes. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be in his shoes.

3AUK6ALLEY-EDIAs!

Think twice before confronting drivers Dear Abby: I suffered a serious accident at work and have endured numerous surgeries, with another on the horizon. Because the injuries are in the cervical and lumbar areas, they are not visible. Last week, I parked my car in a handicapped spot in the supermarket parking lot. Having a proper tag on my license plate, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think twice about it. As I entered the store, a woman who had parked nearby started shouting at me, saying I shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have parked where I did. I indicated she should read my plate, to which she then replied that I was â&#x20AC;&#x153;phonyâ&#x20AC;? for taking advantage of the system. I imagine she thought this

Dear Offended: A good beginning would be to ask your husband why he made such a mean-spirited remark. He owes you an apology for his tactlessness. If he really hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thought you were dressed appropriately for your sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wedding, he should have mentioned it BEFORE you left the house so you could change if you wished. Slamming you afterward wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t helpful, and your hurt feelings are understandable. But unless you have other reasons for worrying that you might be headed â&#x20AC;&#x153;in opposite directions,â&#x20AC;? donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let this be blown out of proportion.

Which if three plays is correct?

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Duffy Daugherty, who was the head football coach at Michigan State University from 1954 to 1972, said, “Three things can happen when you put a ball in the air – and two of them are bad.” In this deal, East has three possible plays at trick one – and two of them are bad. South is in three no-trump. West leads the heart eight and declarer covers with dummy’s 10. Which heart should East play? East made a two-heart weak jump overcall, promising a respectable six-card suit and 5-10 high-card points. South responded with a negative double, indicating four spades. North cue-bid three hearts to show game-

forcing values and to ask South if he had a heart stopper for no-trump purposes. South starts with eight top tricks: one heart (given the lead), four diamonds and

three clubs. If clubs are 3-3, the contract is safe, but if that suit is not breaking favorably, declarer will have to score a spade trick. If East wins the first trick with his heart ace and returns the suit, South will make his contract. Suppose instead East plays his heart queen. South will get home if – admittedly a big if – he does not take the trick. However, East should recall that when an opponent has only one stopper in the suit he is trying to establish, give that trick to the opponent as quickly as possible. East should signal enthusiastically with his nine. Declarer wins, tries the clubs, cashes his diamonds, and turns to spades. But West grabs the trick, cashes his club jack and leads his second heart to defeat the contract. © 2014 UFS

Skills that take time to master Clockmaker part of exclusive club BY MARK BLACK Daily Herald

ELGIN (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jim Lachapelle is a member of an exclusive club, one that has only 17 members in the United States. To become one of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s few certified master clockmakers, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a secret handshake or a complicated code book, but you do need a specialized skill set: the ability to look at a broken 400-year-old clock, or some other equally rare timepiece, and have the knowledge and ability to restore it to its former glory. Lachapelle has been developing those skills since he left college in 1977. He says he always enjoyed working with his hands, and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

Lachapelle checks the timing of a 1790s Scottish clock in for repair at his shop in South Elgin. a big surprise when he decided to pursue an apprenticeship as a clockmaker. Once he got started, he found himself fascinated by the challenges that come with making new timepieces and fixing old ones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the idea of the history you are touching,â&#x20AC;? Lachapelle says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a tremendous joy in working with those pieces.â&#x20AC;?

What he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find were a lot of job opportunities. So after 5 years as an apprentice, he and a friend, Rodland Iverson, opened Elgin Clock Repair in 1981. As a master clockmaker, he frequently finds himself working on family heirlooms, clocks that have been in the same family for four or five generations and that are hundreds of years old.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unusual, he says, for the owners of such clocks to become sentimental about them and willing to pay more to have them repaired than the pieces are worth. He says his favorites come from the late 1800s, when many clocks were â&#x20AC;&#x153;beautifully engineered pieces â&#x20AC;&#x201C; almost overly engineered.â&#x20AC;? A short time later, the majority of clocks would become much simpler, he says, to make them easier to mass produce. He notes that often the cost to restore an heirloom piece goes far beyond the value of the clock, but the value usually lies in family memories for his customers. Lachapelle and his business partner now have shops in Naperville, which is mainly a retail outlet, and South Elgin, where they do their work to repair timepieces.

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Real estate investment trust Ventas is purchasing American Realty Capital Healthcare Trust Inc. in a cash-and-stock deal that the companies valued at about $2.6 billion. The companies each own medical care offices as well as other real estate properties. Ventas Inc. will pay $11.33 per ARC Healthcare share, a 14 percent premium to its Friday closing price of $9.95. ARC Healthcare shareholders can choose to receive 0.1688 Ventas common shares or $11.33 in cash for each common share of ARC Healthcare they own. The cash portion of the deal is subject to a cap of 10 percent of ARC Healthcareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outstanding shares. ARC Healthcare stockholders are expected to own approximately 8 percent of Ventasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 321 million outstanding shares once the acquisition is complete. Both companies unani-

mously approved the transaction, which is targeted to close in the fourth quarter. It still needs approval from ARC Healthcare stockholders. ARC Healthcareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stock surged $1.10, or 11.1 percent to $11.05 in morning trading Monday. Ventas shares fell $1.45, or 2.2 percent, to $65.35. Ventas also announced that it is buying 29 independent living seniors housing communities in Canada from Holiday Retirement for $980 million Canadian dollars (approximately $900 million) in cash. That deal is expected to close in the third quarter. The transactions are expected to be immediately add to Ventasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2015 normalized funds from operations by at least 10 cents per share. Funds from operations, or FFO, are considered key to measuring the financial performance of real estate investment trusts. FFO adds items such as amortization and depreciation back to net income.

With a rivalry game out of the way, the Sterling softball team can now go about the business of continuing down the postseason tournament trail. The Golden Warriors handled Rock Falls to win a regional championship on Saturday. It is their seventh regional title in the past 10 years, and a year ago, they advanced all the way to the state tournament, where they placed Karlie fourth. Mellott Next up is a Sterling da te a gai nst senior Burlington Central today at the Marengo Sectional. The winner of that game will meet either Marengo or Belvidere in the sectional final on Saturday. First-year Sterling head coach Becki Edmondson gave her team Sunday off, but was back at it Monday. She was pleased with the practice. “They’ve been very focused lately,” Edmondson said. “For being such a young team, we’re very proud of our ability to focus, and the concentration that we’ve had. A lot of these girls were with us when we went through the postseason run, so even though they might not have seen the field, they were there through all of that fun.” ROCKETS CONTINUED ON B3

SPORTS inside

DEKALB – Behind the bleachers and dugouts at Mary M. Bell Field at Northern Illinois, Amboy freshman Delaney Wilhelm was holding a bright yellow softball like a delivery man handling a package marked, “Handle with care.” Her teammates gave her that game ball that she held onto so dearly after doing just about everything for the Clippers. But she

wouldn’t have been able to tuck the ball under her arm if it wasn’t for the mean things she did to it during the game. Wilhelm provided the necessary offense and defense for the Clippers in a 1-0 win over Putnam County in a Class 1A DeKalb Supersectional. With the win, Amboy advances to the state tournament this weekend in Peoria for the first time in program history. DELIVERS CONTINUED ON B3

Jordan Spieth visited Silvis on Monday, as part of the John Deere Classic media day. He will be back to defend his title when the tourney begins on July 11.

Great expectations Spieth eyeing spot as worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best golfer BY BRIAN WEIDMAN BWEIDMAN SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

SILVIS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jordan Spiethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stated goal is to be the No. 1 golfer in the world. If and/or when he attains that goal, the springboard could be a little patch of sand near the 18th green at the TPC Deere Run golf course in Silvis. Last July, Spieth found himself in that bunker on his last hole. He stood at 18-under-par, two strokes behind Zach Johnson, who was the defending champion, and one behind David Hearn. Needing a miraculous finish, he got one. His shot from the beach bounced once and landed directly in the cup for an unlikely birdie. When Johnson bogeyed the last hole and Hearn parred, the three of them were in a playoff. Each player had golden opportunities to win, and on the fifth extra hole, it was Spieth who finally did. On Monday, Spieth returned to the course, fresh off a tie for 19th place at The Memorial in Dublin, Ohio, as the headliner for the John Deere Classic media day. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play the course, but instead fielded questions from a throng of reporters. One of the things he wanted to stress: the bunker shot on the 18th hole would not have skittered across the green and into a pond, as many thought it would. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really bugs me when people

Spieth file Age: Resides:$ALLAS FYI: 0'!4OURROOKIEOFTHE YEARIN WHENHEWONTHE *OHN$EERE#LASSIC#UR RENTLYTHINTHEWORLDGOLF RANKING(ELPED4EXASWIN NATIONALCHAMPIONSHIPIN tell me it was going in the water because it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going in the water. I mean, I get told that, people from the crowd will yell out throughout the year, good thing that one hit the pin, huh?â&#x20AC;? Spiethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s road to PGA Tour riches was an unconventional one. He played just 1 year at Texas, where he helped the Longhorns win a national championship in 2011, before turning pro in December of 2012, midway through his sophomore season. He relied on sponsorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exemptions to get into tournaments, and made the most of them. By March of 2013, he had made enough money to receive unlimited exemptions. The big breakthrough came at the John Deere Classic. The win got him into the British Open, which was contested the next week at Muirfield, Scotland, as well as the PGA Championship and the 2014 Masters. It also earned him full status on the PGA Tour, meaning he could pick and choose the events he

wanted to play in. Spieth nearly won again at the Wyndham Championship in August of 2013, but lost a playoff to Patrick Reed. He capped off his year by being a captainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selection to the Presidents Cup team, and helped the United States win that event. Spieth won the PGA Tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rookie of the Year award, and finished 10th on the money list in 2013 with just under $4 million dollars. He wound up ranked 22nd in the world, after beginning the season ranked 810th. In 2014, Spieth is up to 10th in the world, and is fifth on the PGA Tour money list with $3,369,464. He had a chance to win the Masters, leading the event with 11 holes to play before being overtaken by Bubba Watson. He also had a chance at another elite event, The Players Championship, before again faltering late. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all part of a learning process that he hopes will get him to the top of the sport. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big-time stuff for a man who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn 21 until July 27. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That ultimate goal of becoming No. 1 in the world is still out there, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m off to a good start in achieving that,â&#x20AC;? Spieth said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take a lot harder work than Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m even putting in now, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m putting in a lot of hard work. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take that extra step that nobody else is taking.â&#x20AC;?

Nadal keeps winning in Paris PARIS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Maybe, just maybe, Rafael Nadal was a tad vulnerable, the thinking went before this French Open. He had lost three times on his beloved

red clay already this year, more defeats than he ever had on the surface before heading to Roland Garros. Then came an admission, after the Grand Slam tournamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third round, that his back was

bothering him and slowing his serves. Nadal won 18 points in a row Monday during one stretch en route to beating 83rd-ranked Dusan Lajovic 6-1, 6-2, 6-1 for a record 32nd consecutive victory at

the French Open. That broke Nadalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own mark of 31 and moved him a step closer to a fifth straight title in Paris. The No. 1-ranked Nadal is now 63-1 for his career at the tournament.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Delaney came up huge for us,â&#x20AC;? Amboy coach Kelly Whitman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was just unbelievable.â&#x20AC;? Wilhelm went 2-for-2 in the win, accounting for half of Amboyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four hits, none bigger than her RBI triple in the bottom of the fifth inning. She demolished a waisthigh fastball which landed at the base of the center-field fence, scoring teammate Hannah McCoy to break a scoreless tie. Amboy had been baffled by Putnam County starter Shelby Yepson throughout the game. Yepson often induced soft pop outs and dribblers, and finished with six strikeouts in her six innings of work. But the Clippers (22-9) capitalized on Yepsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lone mistake in the bottom of the fifth. With two outs, Yepson walked the No. 8 hitter McCoy, on eight pitches. McCoy worked a walk after starting the at-bat with two called strikes. She fouled off two pitches, and looked at four balls, to extend the inning for Wilhelm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew that we had to come through as a team at some point,â&#x20AC;? Wilhelm said. Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; center fielder Stephanie Wilson got crossed up trying to track the deep fly ball and watched it sail over her head and land at the base of the wall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just wanted to make contact,â&#x20AC;? Wilhelm said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At first, I thought it might go out, but I just ran as fast as I could.â&#x20AC;? Wilhelm ended up with a standup triple, and McCoy scored the eventual game-winning run from first without a play at the plate as her coach was waving her around

Whitman said of sending McCoy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It worked out.â&#x20AC;? The Panthers (28-8) threatened in the top half of the sixth, but Wilhelm came to the rescue again. Putnam Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Annie Miller hit a single through the right side of the infield as Nikki Mertel raced home from second base. Wilhelm picked up the rolling ball and threw it on a fly to catcher Kaitlyn Liebing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Delaney has such a good arm,â&#x20AC;? Liebing said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew we had a chance when it was coming. It was a great throw.â&#x20AC;? Liebing spun around to her left and tagged Mertel, who slid wide of the plate in hopes to evade the tag, for the third out.

Sterling (27-8) just played Burlington Central (23-9) in the IC Catholic tournament in Elmhurst on May 17. The Rockets scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh to knot the score at 5-5, only to have the Golden Warriors score two in the top of the

eighth to pull out a 7-5 victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that they have some thunder in that lineup,â&#x20AC;? Sterling senior shortstop Karlie Mellott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it helps that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen it once. We know what to expect. At this point, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a good team every time out. We just have to keep playing good defense and scoring runs behind Lexy [Staples].â&#x20AC;?

All that was left was for Amboy starter Karlee Doege to record the final three outs. Doege finished with five strikeouts, one walk and scattered four hits in seven innings. Her one walk came with two outs in the seventh which put runners on first and second, but worked out of the jam by striking out Ciera Keller to end the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was shaking out there on the mound,â&#x20AC;? Doege said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just knew I had to calm down and throw strikes. This is pretty unbelievable. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to state.â&#x20AC;? The Clippers will face the winner of the DuQuoin Supersectional, either Trico or New Athens, at 12:30 p.m. Friday at the EastSide Centre in East Peoria. Those two teams play today at 4:30 p.m. after their game on Monday was postponed.

Edmondson also had assistant coach Julie Schroeder scout the Burlington Central Regional final between Central and Kaneland on Saturday. Central pulled out a 6-5 victory. Between playing Burlington Central in Elmhurst and scouting the regional won by the Rockets, Edmondson has a pretty good handle of what to expect. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top offensive

threat is senior Bekah Harnish, a Northern Illinois University recruit, and they employ two top pitchers, senior Brooke Gaylord and sophomore Emily Kisch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously we know the tendencies of their top hitters,â&#x20AC;? Edmondson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this point, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just preparing like we would for any other game. We have to do the small things to make the big things happen.â&#x20AC;?

Blackhawks players react after a 5-4 loss to the Los Angeles Kings in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals on Sunday in Chicago. The Kings will play the New York Rangers for the Stanley Cup.

Somber finish for Hawks A ll but a few dozen fans remained in the building. Both teams had left the ice, one to celebrate and the other to commiserate. The Blackhawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; season had come to a sudden, stunning end with a 5-4 loss against the Los Angeles Kings in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals. Kings defenseman Alec Martinez had scored 5:47 into overtime, sending the Hawks (and their fans) home for a summer without a parade. From the seventh floor of the United Center, Frank Pellico stayed behind. He pressed on the keys of the stadium organ. He wore a Hawks sweater with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pellico â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 61â&#x20AC;? stitched on the back. Pellico picked a song from 1939, a classic from Vera Lynn that was covered perfectly by Johnny Cash. The songâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll Meet Again,â&#x20AC;? and Pellico hit every note as he sat on a black bench in front of the custom made, 20-year-old instrument from Allen Organ Co. The song selection came naturally to Pellico, 73, as he wrapped up his 23rd season with the Hawks. He hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t planned it ahead of time. It just flowed from his fingers and through the speakers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of the words,â&#x20AC;? Pellico said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll meet again Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know when But I know Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll meet again Some sunny dayâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? Pellico is right. The season might be finished â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a season in which the Hawks came oh-so-close to another trip to the Stanley Cup Final â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s championship window remains wide open. In his two-plus decades with the team, Pellico has

seen a little bit of everything. He played at the old Chicago Stadium for 3 years, then at the United Center for the past 20 years. He played when the Hawks were a laughingstock, and he played as they developed into twotime champions. Pellico held his hand open to reveal two massive, shiny Stanley Cup championship rings in the palm of his left hand. The rings glistened despite the dim light that filled his private seating area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just took them off because my hands hurt,â&#x20AC;? Pellico said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very heavy.â&#x20AC;? How close Pellico and the Hawks came to battling the New York Rangers for ring No. 3. The Hawks would have been the odds-on favorites to win the series, but instead it will be the Kings who will host Games 1 and 2 of the championship round that starts Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it,â&#x20AC;? Pellico said, shaking his head at the outcome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were all really hyper about it before we even started [overtime]. In fact, even my boss said on the headset, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Take it easy, everybody, just simmer down.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really hard and exciting to watch. We came so close.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keep smilinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; through Just like you Always do â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Til the blue skies drive

The dark clouds Far awayâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? Yes, Pellico works for the Hawks, but he also is a devoted fan. Disappointment filled his face as he prepared to leave the building, to say farewell for now to the giant organ that includes three keyboards with 61 keys apiece and a full pedal board with 32 notes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I get in the car and call my brother at home, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just drive me crazy with what went wrong,â&#x20AC;? said Pellico, who lives in Palos Hills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hear about it all the way home. But, tomorrow, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have more work to do.â&#x20AC;? The Hawks fought hard until their seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final second, Pellico said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They played great,â&#x20AC;? Pellico said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They really just played their hearts out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somebody has to win, somebody has to lose. It just happens that way, you know? Yes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And will you please say hello To the folks that I know Tell â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em that I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be long And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be happy to know That when you saw me go I was singing this songâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? Pellico will be back next fall for his 24th season with the team. The Hawks will be back, too, chasing their dream once again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a better job, just to watch the game, let alone try to help them out and get the crowd going,â&#x20AC;? Pellico said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting. It always is.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll meet again Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know when But I know Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll meet again Some sunny day.â&#x20AC;?

MLB ROUNDUP

KC puts together masterpiece By The Associated Press

Danny Duffy became the latest pitcher to shut down the St. Louis Cardinals. Duffy worked six innings of one-hit ball coming off a pair of poor outings, and Alex Gordon homered to start a breakout three-run seventh for the Kansas City Royals in a 6-0 victory over the suddenly punchless defending NL champs on Monday night in St. Louis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told him, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t throw a great game, you pitched a great game,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? manager Ned Yost said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was just right on top of his game.â&#x20AC;? The Royals had just two singles off Shelby Miller (6-5) in a game that had been scoreless before they opened the seventh with four straight hits. Gordonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fifth homer ended a 15-inning scoreless drought, and Mike Moustakas capped the

Astrograph Avoid office politics Tuesday, June 3, 2014 Before making any drastic changes in the coming months, consider the consequences. A slow, deliberate approach will take you far. Making quick decisions or forming spontaneous partnerships will backfire. You can accomplish the most if you use your time wisely. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be tempted to change your plans. Someone pretending to be a friend could be trying to throw you off course. Use your innovative ideas to confuse the competition. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- An unexpected change could work to your advantage. You may not have been considering professional moves, but a positive result will unfold if you set your sights high.

ROLL-A-WAY bed w/mattress. Good condition $95 obo 815-732-1492

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Your entertaining attitude will attract people of influence. Your emotions will be difficult to control, but can be assets if you want to get your point across. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t neglect your home and family.

Slexitec Wonderflooring tile 5'5â&#x20AC;?x7'9â&#x20AC;? $50 815288-3688

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Avoid office politics and gossip. Any opinion you give

will lead to a bad situation that could damage your reputation. Reserve judgment, be objective and remain neutral. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Your chutzpah will gain you added respect if you speak up about issues that concern you. Your enthusiasm and knowledge will help you win valuable allies. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not healthy to compare yourself to others. There are bound to be a lot of factors that you know nothing about. Be content with your own lot in life and grateful for what you have. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Meeting with people from outside your circle will present you with interesting ways to move forward personally or professionally. If you share as much as you can, you will make new friends. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a commitment or start a new partnership. Take time to rejuvenate before you attempt to finish your to-do list. Paying attention to personal matters should take top priority.

PUZZLE ENTHUSIASTS: Get more puzzles in AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Do your best to display honesty in personal and professional relationships. Boasting will not help you win trust or allies. Stick to the facts in order to make a good impression. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Look at a long-term investment that will help you build your assets safely. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold back when forceful pursuit is required. Balance and integrity will bring good results. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Romance is on the rise. Make special plans with someone you care for, or get out and meet someone new. Personal happiness can help you perform better in all walks of life. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Fond memories will make you want to get in touch with an old friend. Getting together with people who share your interests or concerns will lead to a joint venture.
