ELECTION | 17TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

Schilling visits Sterling VA clinic Rep. Bustos still wants answers from recent VA facilities scandal BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5529

STERLING – Bobby Schilling, a candidate for the 17th

Congressional District seat, was in Sterling on Thursday to visit the local veterans’ clinic. In November, Schilling will try to win back the seat he lost in 2012 to Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-East Moline. Schilling, R-Colona, said he was impressed with the Department of Veterans

Affairs’ Sterling Community Based Outpatient Clinic and is a strong supporter of the CBOC facilities, which aim to reduce the distance veterans must travel for medical care. The closest VA hospital to the area is in Iowa City, Iowa. “It’s a huge piece of the puzzle, so to speak, to help the VA take a lot of the backlog off,” he

said. “One of the things I would like to see in the local facilities, like this one, is to have them have more assistance and maybe somebody in-house that can help a lot of our veterans that are coming home with [post-traumatic stress disorder].”

CHAMPAIGN (AP) – Illinois’ unemployment rate fell to 7.5 percent in May, its lowest level since 2008, the state Department of Employment Security said Thursday. The May jobless rate is down from 7.9 percent in April. Illinois still has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country, but the department noted that the state jobless rate has now dropped for 3 consecutive months. Department officials called the results encouraging. “The rate falling to 7.5 percent is significant,” spokesman Greg Rivara said. He pointed out that the trend of generally falling unemployment rates in the state dates back well beyond this year, but said the decreases of the past few months have been sharp after the brutal winter slowed the economy. The state jobless rate was 8.7 percent in January. The national unemployment rate for May was 6.3 percent. While May rates are not yet available for all 50 states, Illinois’ unemployment rate was lower than only Nevada’s and Rhode Island’s in April, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The total number of unemployed people in Illinois fell 4.6 percent in May, to 492,400. That number, though, only includes the unemployed who are still actively seeking work. JOBLESS CONTINUED ON A4

DEKALB

When do-it-yourself is a good idea Shop owners offer advice on when to call in reinforcements BY KATIE DAHLSTROM 3HAW-EDIA KDAHLSTROM SHAWMEDIACOM

DeKALB – Before Rachel Polly starts a doit-yourself project, she thinks about what could go wrong. She advises other would-be do-it-yourselfers to do the same. “They need to know the consequences if there’s a mistake,� Polly said. “Are you going to have to pay a plumber $5,000 to fix something, or are you just going to have to paint it again?� Painting, tiling and other cosmetic projects can be tackled by amateurs, local experts say, but when it comes to plumbing and electrical projects, avoid the do-ityourself route and find a professional to do the job. Polly and Sherrie Larkins owns Urban Grace in downtown DeKalb, a shop filled with do-ityourself, or DIY, projects such as furniture they painted or altered. DIY has been a career for both women for almost 4 years, and a hobby for much longer.

They also host classes on painting DIY projects at the shop, which they said are gaining popularity, in part because of sharing sites such as Pinterest or Instagram, or programs on HGTV or the DIY Network. Other than considering the consequences, Polly and Larkins also take into account what tools they’ll need to complete a project, if the tool is worth buying, and if they feel comfortable using it. A jigsaw, for instance, does not fit into the comfortableto-use category, they said. “We try to be as independent as we can,� said Larkins, adding painting her kitchen cabinets is her gutsiest undertaking in her own home. A mix of comfort and skill is key, said Carolyn Tobinson, who owns Tobinson’s Ace Hardware in Genoa. She sees people who will only go as far as replacing a toilet flap, to those who are doing their own underground wiring. Although the viability of a project depends on the person, Tobinson has a pretty solid test to tell how far a customer should go.

Urban Grace co-owners Sherrie Larkins (left) and Rachel Polly talk about the chalk-based paint that Polly is using to paint a trunk in their shop Thursday at 255 E. Lincoln Highway in downtown DeKalb. Urban Grace opened on May 17. Larkins and Polly construct, revive, and re-work old furniture pieces and home decor items. “When they start asking me electric questions and I can’t answer them, that’s when I tell them they should see a professional,� Tobinson said. “Plumbing, you can make a mess. Electric, someone can get killed.� She’s noticed a slight

influx in people becoming more repair and craft savvy because they can follow step-by-step instructions online. Tobinson is considering offering home and garden seminars because she sees the demand. “There’s a lot of brave

and smart people out there,� Tobinson said. But no amount of enthusiasm can compensate for lacking skills or know-how. Re-doing a cosmetic project a homeowner finished but didn’t like is an every once

in a while job for John Horst, who has owned Sycamore-based Horst Builders since 1988. While superficial DIY projects don’t worry him, people who try to repair their own roofs, plumbing or electric do. The repercussions from botched electrical work are likely to be much more detrimental than an unfortunate paint job, he said. He couldn’t pinpoint how a plumbing or electrical DIY project gone awry would hit someone’s wallet, but said it undoubtedly would. A project’s success also comes back to tools. He said professionals have higher-quality (more expensive) tools while most homeowners who attempt their own repairs often chose cheaper ones. “If you want to try something yourself, that’s fine,� Horst said. “You can do your own trim or painting, but leave the mechanicals to the professionals.� Besides, the personalities on HGTV can’t explain it all. “There’s things that come with building experience that you can’t learn on TV,� Horst said.

MINIMUM WAGE

Issue pits cities against states Leaders: People are being pushed out of cities, canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t survive ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dominique Mayfield makes $8.25 an hour washing dishes and busing tables at a Syracuse brewpub. Shantel Walker makes $8.50 an hour at her pizzeria in New York City, where the rent is more than double what it is in Syracuse. Two very different cities, but nearly the same wage. The economic differences between Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big cities and elsewhere have prompted leaders in Seattle, New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Oklahoma City and other cities to push to raise the minimum wage within their borders. The efforts are running into opposition from state lawmakers from both parties and business groups who say a patchwork of minimum wages could lead to a

AP

People rally for an increase in the minimum wage on the Great Western Staircase of the Capitol on Tuesday in Albany, N.Y. Several hundred fastfood workers and other low-wage employees from around New York gathered to pressure lawmakers to raise the minimum wage from $8 to $10.10 an hour and let local cities raise it even higher. confusing and unequal business climate in which labor costs would vary dramatically from city to city. The minimum wage has emerged as perhaps the top issue of a newly emboldened, urban liberal movement that in many places is led not by governors or state

lawmakers, but by local leaders backed by organized fast-food workers. After years of grappling with state and federal budget cuts, mayors and city councils are pushing back against state and federal officials who they say donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand the income inequality

of 21st-century American cities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So many people have been pushed out of this city,â&#x20AC;? said Seattle City Councilman Nick Licata, who successfully pushed to raise the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wage to $15, more than $5 higher than the state wage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Local politicians donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the luxury of not doing something. The state and federal governments, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been AWOL. They havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been engaged.â&#x20AC;? The fight to raise minimum wages has lawmakers in many states on the defensive, arguing that higher wages will lead to reductions in hours and jobs for lowincome workers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and retail price increases that are likely to hit them hardest. The businessbacked American Legislative Exchange Council argues that local minimum wages could lead to a race to the bottom, where businesses locate in whatever city within a region has the lowest starting wage.

Having an in-house mental health professional, Schilling said, could help the CBOC facilities be even more effective because, when veterans call seeking help for PTSD or other mental health issues, they usually need help immediately. The VA has been at the center of a recent scandal in which it was revealed facilities had lied about the average wait times for veterans and even covered it up. On Thursday, Bustos said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been briefed, at her request, by those in charge of the VA facilities in the district and

isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aware of any complaints against the Sterling clinic. Moving forward, Bustos has called for an FBI investigation into the scandal, which has started, she said, and wants more information about what happened. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think above all else, we need to get the answers to the questions that are still out there, to the systematic problems to vetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; access to timely health care,â&#x20AC;? she said. In 2011, while Schilling was a member of Congress, he introduced the Enhanced Veteran Healthcare Experience Act of 2011, a version of which recently passed, that would allow veterans to visit non-VA hospitals

at the VAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expense. The piece of legislation that recently passed would allow veterans to visit non-VA facilities, if the VA facility they call has at least 40-day wait time, which wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a part of Schillingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legislation. Because of the long wait times at many VA facilities, once the bill is signed into law, many veterans will be allowed to visit non-VA facilities, Schilling said, which will reduce much of the current backlog. When it comes the November election, Schilling said he wants voters to look at him and Bustos side by side. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited,â&#x20AC;? Schilling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a great opportunity.

And the big thing we want to do is just contrast the two of us to show who we believe is the better one. And we believe weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the better choice.â&#x20AC;? Bustos pointed to the Thomson Correctional Center, legislation to help speed up repairs and upgrades to the locks and dams on the Mississippi and Illinois rivers, and $110 million in funding for the Rock Island Arsenal as economic achievements from her time in office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a matter of looking at what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve accomplished over the last 18 months,â&#x20AC;? she said of the election. â&#x20AC;&#x153;... [Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m] very proud of the fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve focused on the economy.â&#x20AC;?

11,400 manufacturing jobs cut over last year JOBLESS

Illinois added a net 2,100 construction jobs in May, 2,700 educational and health services jobs, and 2,800 government jobs. The stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s key manufacturing sector continued to struggle.

Well More than a halfmillion people in Illinois work in manufacturing. The companies that employ them have cut a net 11,400 jobs over the last year, a decrease of 2 percent. That drop continued in May, with a decrease of 1,600 jobs. Manufacturers around the world, Peoria-based

Caterpillar Inc. among them, have been cutting jobs over the past year or more as demand for goods such as Catâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mining equipment has fallen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given the short-term trends with global manufacturing, that number is not surprising,â&#x20AC;? Rivara said.

Employers in the professional and business services sector cut a net 6,300 jobs in May. The number includes 3,500 temporary employees, more than half of them blue-collar workers whose positions could have been lost as part of the downturn in manufacturing, Rivara said.

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS

Chancellor: Med school should be small Proposal still in its early stages URBANA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A new medical school being discussed for the University of Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Urbana-Champaign campus should be small and complement the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other operations, the campusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chancellor said.

Chancellor Phyllis Wise said during an address to the University Senates Conference on Wednesday that a lot of work still needs to be done on the proposal, but that the school could be an important addition, The News-Gazette reported. The group includes faculty from all three University of Illinois campuses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe if we do this

right, if we make it small, if we make it complementary, we make it [an] out of the ordinary, conventional mechanism of an academic structure, that we will be able to build something that will be important to our campusâ&#x20AC;? and the towns, region and state, Wise said. The proposal is in its early stages. It would cre-

ate a public-private partnership with the local Carle hospital that Wise said would allow the university to not ask the state for more money, or take money away from other university endeavors. Some faculty from the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s College of Medicine in Chicago have been skeptical of the idea. The existing small medi-

cal school in Urbana is a regional campus of the Chicago medical school, where the proposed new medical school would be independent. Don Chambers, a professor at the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chicago campus, said the details will be important. Most of them have not been worked out yet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think my colleagues could buy into this, once

they understand the details, and once they understand and we all understand this is really complementary and not adversarial,â&#x20AC;? he said. A feasibility study on the medical school projects an opening date in 2017. Start-up costs are pegged at about $100 million. Wise says she hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet start formally raising money for the idea.

FREEPORT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A 69-yearold Freeport man involved in an accident June 8 that killed a Dixon man was charged with improper lane usage and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident. James R. Battisti apparently had a medical issue and blacked out just

before his SUV crossed the center line, hitting Brad Wohrleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1957 Chevrolet. According to Stephenson County Sheriff David Snyders: Wohrley, 56, and his wife, Mary, 58, were southbound on state Route 26, just north of Rudy Road, when their vintage Chevrolet, which had no seat belts, was struck by a northbound SUV driven by Battisti.

Brad Wohrley died at the scene. Mary Wohrley was thrown from the car, which rolled, its front end landing on top of her. She since has been released from Rockford Memorial Hospital. Battistiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chevrolet Equinox veered into a field and caught fire. He was taken FHN Memorial Hospital in Freeport, and has since been released.

Fulfilling a duty with pride W

hiteside County supplied soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines to the World War II effort. It supplied defense plant workers to the Green River Ordnance Plant in nearby Lee County. And it supplied its name to an attack cargo ship, which served in the Navyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fleet from 1944 until 1958. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Whiteside Arlo Ericson County A former sailor residents on the USS likely were Whiteside, not well Ericson presented acquainted memorabilia with the from the ship story of the to Whiteside County. USS Whiteside. This week, a former sailor from Missouri changed that. Arlo Ericson is 86 years old, he lives in St. Joseph, he once served on the USS Whiteside, and he is among the dwindling number of shipmates still with us. Ericson is proud of his service on the ship.

What we think A former sailor on the USS Whiteside presented memorabilia from the World War II ship to its namesake county this week. We salute Arlo Ericson for his generous act.

Courtesy of Arlo Ericson

The USS Whiteside, an attack cargo ship, was commissioned in September 1944 during World War II. Whiteside Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s namesake was decommissioned in 1958, then used for target practice and sunk in 1971. He went to the trouble of organizing reunions of shipmates over the years. It recently occurred to him that memorabilia from the ship, including the last flag to fly on the Whiteside before it was decommissioned, should be presented to Whiteside County to preserve for future generations.

Thus, Ericson traveled to Morrison on Tuesday for a reception and presentation. County officials were pleased to receive the items. Some will be displayed in the courthouse, while others will be stored for posterity. The USS Whiteside was a workhorse of the Navy during the closing months of the war. It

delivered cargo and ferried the wounded during key 1945 battles at Iwo Jima and Okinawa. When hostilities broke out on the Korean Peninsula in 1950, the Whiteside returned to harmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way, participating in a supporting role in the Inchon landing. Much of the Whitesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s peacetime service involved hauling cargo through the Pacific and patrolling the West Coast. After its 1958 decommissioning, the USS Whiteside had one more duty to perform. Navy gunners used it for target practice in 1971, and it was sunk. We join Whiteside County officials and residents in expressing gratitude for the flag and other memorabilia from the ship. We salute Arlo Ericson for his service to the USS Whiteside and the preservation of its memory. The responsibility to preserve and protect the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mementos now falls on the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoulders. Let Whiteside County fulfill that obligation with pride.

Return wealth to have-nots, the real job creators JOHN EADES Sterling

Goodbye, beloved republic. All hail, better yet, sieg heil, to the fascist, oligarchic plutocracy now governing America. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beyond debate: our government is definitely of the wealthy, by the wealthy, and wholly for the wealthy. Congress is in no way representative of the populace, with an average net worth of millions of dollars and incomes of 1 percenters. The primary purpose of the great majority is to

enhance the well-being of the richest among us at the expense of the poorest and struggling middle class. To make matters worse, the Supreme Court has decreed that because money talks, money should have free speech rights. Thus, the wealthy can spend unlimited amounts of money to elect their candidates, thereby purchasing their elected officials to do their rapacious bidding. Lest the pesky majority of voters tries to elect people to represent their interests, Republican state legislators are adopting laws making it more difficult for the unwashed masses

Since the 2008 economic meltdown, the massive, obscene transfer of wealth has seen more than 90 percent of income and wealth increases accrue to the wealthiest, mostly to the top one one-hundredth of 1 percent. And this has been the trend, unbroken since the 1960s; the poorest receive only meager increases, while the wealthiest amass most of the ill-gotten gains. Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy is as doomed as doomed can be. It is way beyond time to return wealth to the real job creators, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;have-notâ&#x20AC;? consumers who drive our economy.

Obama sending military advisors

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It feels good to help themâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Three teens volunteer for fire department

President holds off approving airstrikes

BY MAGGIE MENDERSKI 4HE3TATE*OURNAL 2EGISTER

KINCAID (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Three recent South Fork High School graduates have answered more than just a school bell. A radio call from the Midland Fire Protection District can mean a late night for fire cadets Tyler Murphy, Nick Smith and Ozzy Tryon. Amidst the typical teenage regimen of homework, classes and school activities, the three teens volunteer for their local fire department. They add muchneeded extra hands to the volunteer department and work side by side with the fully certified firefighters during their communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fire and medical calls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As soon as you hear that beep go off, your heart starts pounding with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it going to say, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it going to say,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Tryon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You go on calls, and a lot of these older people canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help themselves. It feels good to help them.â&#x20AC;? The cadets might not enter a burning structure, but they often work at emergency sites, carrying tools and manning hoses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in a situation where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve needed help before, and knowing that I can be there for other people when they need help is a great responsibility,â&#x20AC;? Smith said.

South Fork High School graduates Austin â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ozzyâ&#x20AC;? Tryon (from left), Nick Smith and Tyler Murphy pose for a photo in Kincaid, where they volunteer for the Midland Fire Protection District. They add much-needed extra hands to the fire department and work side by side with the fully certified firefighters during their communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fire and medical calls. Assistant Fire Chief Aaron Tucker said the volunteer department of 28 firefighters answers more than 300 emergency calls per year. Having a steady flow of high school students willing to serve is essential to keeping the department going. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With a small community and with a volunteer service, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a whole lot of calls,â&#x20AC;? Tucker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These guys take the load off.â&#x20AC;? Easing that load meant sleepy eyes in the classroom the next day. They all answered calls on school nights and stayed out well past 2 a.m. Still, Murphy said volunteering in the small Christian County com-

munity is important to him. The people he sees at the gas station or the grocery store are the same people he answers those late-night calls to help. Principal Chris Clark said the firefighting program has helped the three cadets mature. That responsibility has filtered into their postgraduation plans, too. Smith plans to attend Lincoln Land Community College and then transfer to a larger school. Tyron and Murphy both plan to enter the Air National Guard and then pursue careers in law enforcement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year has really made a big difference in the type of people that they are,â&#x20AC;? Clark

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just high school kids that are going through the motions. They are leaders.â&#x20AC;? Clark treasured their sense of leadership within their school. The three seniors have already passed on the fire cadet legacy, with next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incoming senior class already having two cadets. Clark expects more will follow in the incoming junior class. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The responsibilities that they learn â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not just here at school, but outside of it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has helped them become leaders within the community,â&#x20AC;? Clark said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re setting the bar for everyone else thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to follow them.â&#x20AC;?

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Inching back into a fight he tried to leave behind, President Barack Obama announced Thursday he was dispatching 300 U.S. military advisers to Iraq to help quell the rising insurgency in the crumbling nation. He also challenged Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s embattled leader to create a more inclusive government or risk his country descending into sectarian civil war. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The test is before him and other Iraqi leaders as we speak,â&#x20AC;? Obama said of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, whose political fate appeared increasingly in play as his rivals launched a secretive effort to replace him. Less than 3 years after Obama heralded the end of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s war in Iraq, he insisted he was not sending the mili-

tary back into combat. Still, when coupled with previously announced steps, the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions could put about 600 additional U.S. troops in the midst of Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deeply unstable security situation. Underscoring the volatility was a tenacious fight over Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest oil refinery north of Baghdad. Iraqi soldiers and helicopter gunships battled Sunni militants for a third day on Thursday for control of the refinery, the loss of which would be a devastating symbol of the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s powerlessness in the face of a determined insurgency hostile to the West. Despite the deteriorating conditions, Obama held off approving airstrikes that the Iraqi government has sought to stem an insurgency that has taken over the cities of Mosul and Tikrit and has pressed toward Baghdad.

Be happy to give them their due

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Hesiod, an early Greek poet, said, “Observe due measure, for right timing is in all things the most important factor.” That applies to many bridge contracts, either to make or to break them. This deal gives both sides a chance for good timing once North-South push into four hearts. West leads the spade two. How can East defeat the contract? How can South get home if East wins the first trick and tries to cash a second spade winner? The bidding was difficult. When one spade came around, North thought about making a takeout double, but was rightly ner-

vous about having only two hearts. After North balanced with two clubs, South might have passed, but advanced with two hearts, knowing that

his partner would remember that he had not immediately made a two-heart overcall. North cue-bid two spades to show a strong hand and ask his partner to bid notrump with a spade stopper. (Five clubs can be defeated after a trump lead.) East beats four hearts if he shifts to the diamond queen at trick two. This gives the defenders the tempo to collect one spade, two hearts and one diamond. But that is not clear-cut. If East tries to cash a second spade trick, South should ruff and be willing to give the defenders one spade and two hearts. He should ignore the trump finesse and cash his top hearts. Then he turns to the clubs and gets his diamond losers away in time. © 2014 UFS

Kraft recalls some Velveeta cheese Company says product didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough of a specific preservative MCT News Service

Kraft is recalling a batch of Velveeta cheese shipped to Wal-Mart in the Midwest because it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t contain enough of a specific preservative and can spoil too fast, potentially causing a food-borne illness. The cheese product was shipped to three WalMart distribution centers and might have been redistributed to stores in as many as 12 states, including Illinois. The recall includes one batch made on a single manufacturing line over a few hours of production. The recalled product is in 32-ounce containers. They will have a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best Used Byâ&#x20AC;? date of Dec. 17, 2014, and time stamp

between 09:34 and 13:15 next to the date. Consumers who have bought the product should return them to the store for a full refund, or call Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 800-3103704 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. This recall affects one batch of product made on one manufacturing line during a few hours of production. The product was shipped to three WalMart distribution centers and might have been redistributed to stores in up to 12 Midwest states. The affected products might have been shipped to Walmart stores in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. These products were not shipped outside of the United States.

Gazette team doesn’t miss in runaway win at Musgrove BY TY REYNOLDS treynolds@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5554

Big night for the Rehmerts

STERLING – Not long after the lights literally went out Thursday evening at Musgrove Fieldhouse, they did figuratively, too. After a brief power outage plunged the Sterling High School gym into darkness during the SVM All-Star Classic girls game, Skylar Paulson the Gazette boys Eastland team extinguished any hopes of the Telegraph squad with some dynamite shooting. The Gazette hit 51 percent of its shots – including 41 percent of its 3-pointers – to pull away for a 95-74 victory. “They shot lights out, man,” Telegraph guard Jessie McKinley Jr. said. “I knew they were all pretty good shooters – I’d played with most of them before – but it seemed like they just couldn’t miss.”

I

nevitably, the nepotism card was going to be played, albeit in jest. With 5 minutes, 47 seconds remaining in the second quarter of the Sauk Valley Media All-Star Classic boys basketball game in Sterling, the Gazette squad’s Zach Rehmert earned an opportunity for a threepoint play. He drained a short jumper, and the Telegraph’s John Payan was whistled for a foul. Blowing the whistle on the play: veteran official Larry Rehmert, Zach’s father. “That was the worst call I’ve ever seen,” Gazette coach Tony Dunlap said to Larry, a wide smile on his face as he uttered that comment. Zach also smiled when asked about the play, though he missed the free throw to convert the old-fashioned three-point play. “He gave me a little continuation call there,” Zach said. “It was a little fatherly love.” For Larry, it was just another call. “I didn’t look for him,” Larry said, “but if it was there, he was going to get it just like the other kids.” Larry Rehmert has been an official for 21 years. Early in his career, when he’d go out on the road for a game, he’d often bring Zach along. WEIDMAN CONTINUED ON B3

Eastland graduate keys Telegraph’s second-half surge in Classic BY PATRICK MASON pmason@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5550

STERLING – Hannah Hake shimmied into the paint, faked a shot, and hit a 10-foot turnaround jumper to open the third quarter of the 31st Sauk Valley Media All-Star Classic Thursday night. The Eastland graduate had six points in the first half, but dominated both ends of the floor in the second half, collecting points at a rapid pace and grabbing rebounds just as quickly to lead the Telegraph squad to a 48-25 win over the Gazette team. The game was played in a steamy Musgrove Fieldhouse at Sterling High School, but the humidity and sticky feel to the air didn’t slow No. 24 down. HAKE CONTINUED ON B4

Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw celebrates his no-hitter after the final out against the Rockies on Wednesday night in Los Angeles. Kershaw struck out a career-high 15, and pitched around one error.

Oh so close to perfection Kershaw strikes out 15, pitches around error in no-hitter BY JOE RESNICK 4HE!SSOCIATED0RESS

2014 no-hitters

LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A pair of Cy Young Awards, three straight major league ERA titles, a 20-win season â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and now a no-hitter. There isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much more for Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw to accomplish besides winning a World Series ring. Kershaw dominated the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night, striking out a career-high 15 and allowing his only baserunner on a throwing error by shortstop Hanley Ramirez in Los Angelesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 8-0 victory. Kershawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gem gave the Dodgers both no-hitters in the majors this season. Josh Beckett tossed one May 25 in Philadelphia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am so amazed,â&#x20AC;? Kershaw said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beckett told me he was going to teach me how to do that, so I have Josh to thank.â&#x20AC;? Cheered on by his wife in the stands, Kershaw (7-2) retired his first 18 batters before Corey Dickerson led off the seventh with a slow bouncer to Ramirez. His throw on the run went wide past first baseman Adrian Gonzalez for a two-base error â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ending any chance for a perfect game. But that was it for the Rockies against the 26-year-old Kershaw, who shrugged off the miscue and came oh-so-close to pitching the 22nd perfecto in the majors since 1900. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had command of everything. I told him between innings: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not fair when you have a devastating slider and a devastating

Ellis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And when he does that, nights like this are really possible.â&#x20AC;? One batter after Dickerson reached base, rookie third baseman Miguel Rojas backhanded Troy Tulowitzkiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grounder behind the bag and let fly with a strong throw to first that Gonzalez â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a three-time Gold Glove winner â&#x20AC;&#x201C; scooped out of the dirt to keep the no-hitter intact. And with the crowd of 46,069 on its feet and roaring, Kershaw, who signed a $215 million, 7-year contract in the offseason â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a record for a pitcher â&#x20AC;&#x201C; made quick work of the Rockies in the ninth. The only pitcher to have more strikeouts in a no-hitter was

Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan, according to STATS. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen some great pitching performances, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to be any better than Kershaw,â&#x20AC;? Colorado manager Walt Weiss said. After his 107th and final pitch, a beaming Kershaw raised his arms above his head and waited for a huge hug from Ellis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started tearing up out there in the ninth inning, just sitting out there catching and watching him throw after he got those first two outs,â&#x20AC;? Ellis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was pretty special.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something you never forget,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a game Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll watch on replays with my kids forever.â&#x20AC;? Moments later, as he was about to be interviewed on the field, Kershaw was doused by teammates with two large buckets. The left-hander with the bigbreaking curve also got a big hug from his wife. The only other time the Dodgers pitched two no-hitters in one season was 1956, when the team was still in Brooklyn. Carl Erskine and Sal Maglie turned the trick that year. It was the 22nd no-hitter in Dodgers history â&#x20AC;&#x201C; more than any other team â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the first at home since Ramon Martinezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2-0 gem against the Marlins on July 14, 1995. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really thought of the ramifications of throwing one of these things, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely special company,â&#x20AC;? Kershaw said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty cool.â&#x20AC;?

Howard powers Phillies past Cards Sox, Twins wait out long delay "Y4HE!SSOCIATED0RESS

Ryan Howard homered and drove in three runs, and rookie David Buchanan pitched into the eighth inning Thursday night, leading the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Howard, a St. Louis native, has hit safely in 22 of 27 regular season games at Busch Stadium. He has 38 RBIs in St. Louis, and a .374 batting average. Howard also has been hot on the road. In his last 15 games away from Philadelphia, he is hitting .350 with three homers and 14 RBIs. Buchanan (3-3) made his deepest start yet, pitching 7 2/3 innings. He threw 105 pitches, and kept the Cardinals off-balance and off the

scoreboard until the eighth, when Matt Carpenterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two-out single drove in Jhonny Peralta. Buchanan allowed four hits and a walk while striking out four. Jonathan Papelbon pitched the ninth to pick up 17th save in 19 opportunities. Shelby Miller (7-6) gave up seven hits and three walks in 6 2/3 innings. Miller has thrown six innings or more in his last four starts.

CLASSIC REWIND | 1984 MVP | TIM TROSPER

Live long and Trosper First All-Star Classic MVP recalls fond memories BY BRIAN WEIDMAN BWEIDMAN SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

STERLING â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When Tim Trosper walked into Musgrove Fieldhouse on Thursday night, it was a walk down memory lane. Trosper, 48, was among the spectators at the Sauk Valley Media All-Star Classic, held at Sterling High School. It was 30 years ago that Trosper, a Rochelle High School standout athlete, put on a dominating performance in the very first of these games, then known as the Telegraph All-Star Classic and held at Lancaster Gym in Dixon. The 6-foot-3 Trosper led the East squad to a 108-81 victory over the West all-stars, with a stat line of 27 points and 21 rebounds. He was more pleased to get the win than with his own personal numbers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They talked a lot of crap about us,â&#x20AC;? Trosper said of the West squad, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and one of my favorite memories is the fact that our team bonded together and took it to â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em. Even though I was the MVP, I think you could have taken a few of the other guys on our team and given them the MVP.â&#x20AC;? While teams now practice once, or perhaps twice, for the all-star game, Trosper noted the East squad practiced 10 times over a 2-week period in Amboy. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head coach was the late Gary Croegaert. During one of the practices, held at the Amboy junior high, assistant coach Lloyd Johnson, then the coach at Ohio, approached Trosper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tim, I hear youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the leaper, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the guy thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to win this dunk contest pretty easily,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Trosper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I want you to show me your best dunk.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; My best dunk was Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d throw it up from halfcourt, run, jump, catch it, 360 and dunk it.â&#x20AC;? Trosper executed the dunk flawlessly, but there was a catch. The rim at the Amboy junior high was not the forgiving variety often found nowadays, and the force of the slam shattered the glass backboard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a little bit shocked that happened, because I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hang on the rim, and I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trying to do that,â&#x20AC;? Trosper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just broke.â&#x20AC;? As Trosper scooped up the shards of glass as a souvenir, Croegaert entered the gym. The long-time Clippers coach was not amused. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He looked at me and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d better pick a lot of that up, Trosper, because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to cost you a thousand dollars,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Trosper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh my gosh. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 18 years old, and the coach is telling me Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to owe a thousand dollars.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? The dunk contest that first year ended up getting canceled, for

Tim Trosper was the MVP of the first Telegraph All-Star Classic, held in 1984 in Dixon. He scored 27 points and grabbed 21 rebounds to lead his team to victory.

In 1985, Trosper, then a freshman at Kishwaukee Community College, was asked back to be a judge of the dunk contest at the second annual Telegraph All-Star Classic. The winner was an Amboy player, John Bothe, who ironically also broke a backboard during all-star game practice. Trosperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes lit up when asked about the whole all-star game experience. When his Hubs played at Dixon, he noted the gym was perhaps half full. For the all-star game, there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an empty seat. College recruiters flocked to the game, and swarmed the players afterwards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The atmosphere was just incredible,â&#x20AC;? Trosper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the middle of the summer, really hot, but the gym was packed. It was like there was electricity in the air.â&#x20AC;? Trosper was an all-stater at Rochelle, and played in all-star games in Rockford, Peoria,

Chicago and Valparaiso, Ind., following his senior year. His favorite was the smallest one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By far the best feeling, the best electricity we had was in Dixon,â&#x20AC;? Trosper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was insane.â&#x20AC;? Trosper now lives in Byron, with his wife of 25 years, Norma, and their two children, Whitney, 20, and Billy 15. A successful run in the family business, Spider Company Inc., allowed him to retire at 46, giving him the opportunity to follow his childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletic endeavors. Whitney was a member of the Rock Valley College volleyball team that won a national championship 2 years ago. Billy, a 6-3, 280-pounder, is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;beastâ&#x20AC;? on the football field, according to his father, and also a track standout in the throws. In high school, Trosper cleared 6-7 in the high jump, and had top times of 49 seconds flat in the 400 and 21.7 in the 200. After high school, with more advanced coaching, he cleared 7 feet in the high jump. Those numbers pale in comparison, however, to the joy he gets from watching his kids do their thing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have phenomenal memories of my sports career,â&#x20AC;? Trosper said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compare to the memories that I have with my children. My daughter will tell you that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a cryer with that kind of stuff. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been blessed with children who are good students and good athletes.â&#x20AC;?

Larry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been around the game since he was 2.â&#x20AC;? Thursday night, however, marked the first time the father had worked one of his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s games. Zach thought that perhaps his dad had worked a Gus Macker game or two back in the day, but Larry said no, it was indeed their first time. It got off to an interesting start. During player introductions, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customary for the athletes

to give the officials a fist bump. Larry ignored his son, and got a smack in the chest as a result. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to give me anything at first,â&#x20AC;? Zach said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mon dad.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I gave it to him pretty good. I think he learned his lesson.â&#x20AC;? Outside of the missed three-point opportunity, there was very little play between the two. With 4:27 left in the third quarter, Larry called a foul on Zach, the only time that happened in the game. There was also a play in which Zach thought he had saved a ball from going out of bounds, but Larry ruled it hit the baseline. Zach Rehmert finished

GOOD INVENTORY, LOW INTEREST RATES...

with 14 points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal to help the Gazette squad to a 95-74 victory over the Telegraph. In the fall, Zach will attend Aurora University and play basketball. Playing his last high school game in Musgrove Fieldhouse, in front of his family, was a proper send-off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the way to go out,â&#x20AC;? Zach said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dad reffing, mom and my sister were here, everybody

was supporting, so it was a good way to go out, for sure.â&#x20AC;? Before Larry accepted the All-Star officiating job, he checked with his son, to make sure it would be OK. It was, and the first father/son, referee/player combo was born. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was sitting in the stands for most of his games,â&#x20AC;? Larry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It goes by in such a hurry, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad I got to enjoy it. It was great to be a part of it.â&#x20AC;?

ALL-STAR SCOREBOARD

NOTEBOOK

The trend stops here Gazette, Telegraph split All-Star Classic for first time BY PATRICK PETROSKY PPETROSKY SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

For as long as there has been both a boys and girls game at the SVM All-Star Classic, the same team has won both contests. But for the first time in its 11-year history of two games, the Telegraph and Gazette sides split the outcomes of the games Thursday evening at Musgrove Fieldhouse. After 10 outcomes following the trend, this year the Telegraph girls won 48-25, while the Gazette boys won 95-74. Cougar sweep: For the second straight year, an Eastland Cougar won the MVP of the boys game. Last year, Ty Hartman was the MVP as a member of the Telegraph team. This year, the award went to Skylar Paulson, who scored 22 points and hit six 3-pointers for the Gazette squad. A Cougar also took home the girls MVP award, as Hannah Hake scored 18 points and grabbed 13 rebounds for the Telegraph. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been awhile: For many participants, the All-Star Classic was the first time they have played basketball since their respective teams were knocked out of the postseason â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and at times, it showed. Between both teams and games, there was a combined 41 air-balled or bricked shots that did not touch the iron. However, the bank was open for Eastlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Courtney Walker and Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s McCahl Sanders, as they both banked in 3-pointers. Home, sweet home: Former Golden Warrior Kaitlyn Bauer has already moved on with her life, as she resides in Missouri, where she will attend the University of Missouri. But she drove back specifically to play in the All-Star Classic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a tough decision at all,â&#x20AC;? Bauer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just lost out on some hours at work, but when I knew [Julie] Schroeder was coaching, I knew I was coming. One last game with Kiarra [Harris] and Kayleen [Terrock] was great.â&#x20AC;? The 5-hour drive was quickly forgotten when she stepped onto the Musgrove Fieldhouse court one final time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I walked back into the fieldhouse, I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh my gosh,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; because it brought back so many memories,â&#x20AC;? Bauer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I definitely miss it already, even though I just played.â&#x20AC;? Big-game problems: The All-Star

Philip Marruffo/pmarruffo@saukvalley.com

Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jesse McKinley Jr. slam dunks Thursday during the SVM All-Star Classic dunk contest. McKinley won the contest, edging Eastlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dalton Shaner. Classic is the final hurrah for high school games on the school year. Similarly, the Super Bowl is the game that caps off the NFL season. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the only similarity, at least not after Thursday. In the second quarter of the girls game, Musgrove Fieldhouse lost power, just as the Superdome lost power during Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were just all on the bench, and when it started storming, Schroeder said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the power is going to go out soon,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Bauer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And a few seconds later, it happened.â&#x20AC;? While the outage at Musgrove was short-lived, it did not change momentum for either team, and the power stayed on for the rest of the night. The passing storm also cooled down the very hot gym. Lane violation: With 2:10 left in the first quarter, Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mary Alice Oswalt stood at the freethrow line, ready to shoot, when a whistle was blown to call a lane violation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had the ball in my hands, and two girls switched spots,â&#x20AC;? said Oswalt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to shoot it, and I was kind of upset, because I would have had a three-point play. But it all worked out.â&#x20AC;? This did not throw off her shot, as Oswalt proceeded to make eight 3- pointers in the 3-point shootout. That tied former Dixon standout Brooke Bailey, and the two went

into a shoot-off. Bailey went first, and made five shots from the corners. Oswalt then took her turn, and made her last shot for a total of six, to take the crown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do [the contest], but I said I would do it if I had to,â&#x20AC;? Oswalt joked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just came out hoping I was on, because if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m on, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m on ... and I guess I was on tonight, so that was good. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a chance to really practice, and I surprised myself.â&#x20AC;? Teammates tangle: The boys dunk contest started with five dunkers, and after one round it was weeded down to only two: Jessie McKinley Jr. of Oregon, and Dalton Shaner of Eastland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a feeling it was going to come down to me and Dalton,â&#x20AC;? McKinley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really prepared, and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anything planned out until today.â&#x20AC;? Shaner used alley-oops to himself to make it to the final round, while McKinley used Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s A.J. Sharp to generate an alley-oop off of the backboard. All three had been AAU teammates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kept looking over at A.J. and did whatever he told me to,â&#x20AC;? McKinley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shaner, A.J. and I all played on the Illinois Magic together.â&#x20AC;? In the end, McKinley had the better dunk than Shaner. After three rounds of missed dunks, McKinley finally got one down, and Shaner threw in the towel and ended it by surrendering a layup. It was also the second straight year that an Oregon Hawk won, as Alex Cain took home the dunk crown last year. Nothing girly about it: Matt Dail did what he does best in the boys 3-point contest. Formerly a Fulton sharpshooter, Dail made his first five shots and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look back. He went on to make 10 shots, and the next closest competitors made only seven; four different players did that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The no time limit helped me a lot, to be honest.â&#x20AC;? said Dail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to take my time and shoot it. Once I got into a rhythm, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss many.â&#x20AC;? The last rack threw Dail a surprise. As he hoisted up a shot that went long off the iron, he realized it was because the ball he had shot turned out to be a smaller, girls ball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I picked it up and thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hey, this is a girls ball,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? explained Dail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I shot it and knew immediately it was going off. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no excuse to miss it, but oh well, it worked out.â&#x20AC;?

Paulsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3s spur Gazette on in boys game LIGHTS

CONTINUED FROM B1

Eastlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Skylar Paulson did the most damage from deep, hitting a game-high six 3s and leading all scorers with 22 points on 8-for11 shooting to earn MVP honors. Cougar teammate Dalton Shaner, SVMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s player of the year this past winter, added 18 points on 8-for-12 shooting and three assists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was giving Dalton crap, telling him I really can shoot like that,â&#x20AC;? Paulson said with a grin, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I never got the opportunity because he was always doing all the shooting.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always knew he could shoot like that,â&#x20AC;? Shaner said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only in the freedom of an all-star game where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do it. He was always so smart with his shot selection during high school games, so he used his strength inside instead.â&#x20AC;? Paulson kick-started the decisive run toward the end of the third quarter thanks to 3-pointers No. 3 & 4. After Newman grad A.J. Sharpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deep 3 cut the Telegraphâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deficit to 57-52 with 3:43 left in the third, Paulson answered with a 3 of his own. Rock Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Austin Donoho then hit one off a Paulson assist, and Paulson finished the mini-run with another 3 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; off a Shaner assist â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to push the Gazette lead back to 66-52 with 1:40 left in the quarter. The Telegraph got no closer than 12 points the rest of the way, even with coach Ray Sharp finishing the stretch run with

Eastlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dalton Shaner goes up for a layup Thursday in front of Amboyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jordan Ernst during the 2014 SVM All-Star Classic at Musgrove Fieldhouse. four of his Newman players on the court trying to run a full-court press. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach Sharp joked with me before the game that I better not go down into the post, because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d tear them up down low,â&#x20AC;? Paulson said with another broad smile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told him after the game, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;At least I stayed out of the post.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? From the outset, the pace was what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect from an all-star game. Both teams ran the floor, trying to race the defense from one end to the other. But the rust that normally shows up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the sloppiness that can accompany that fast pace â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was nowhere to be found. The Gazette hit its first four shots, the Telegraph hit three of its first four, and the track meet was on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are the best players from all over the area,â&#x20AC;? Poloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brian

Cavanaugh said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so I expected weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d start strong and just get stronger. It was a lot of fun out there, because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way we all want to play.â&#x20AC;? The Telegraph took its only leads in the first quarter, the final one coming at 19-18 after Cavanaughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baseline tear-drop floater with 1:56 left in the period. But Shaner hit a driving layup and Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Matt Dail scored on a putback, then the Gazette answered McKinleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spinning jumper in the lane with a bucket by Milledgevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kameron DawTyne and another Shaner score, on a DawTyne assist. Paulson was the spark for another run with his second 3 of the game, turning a 29-26 lead into a 40-29 margin over a 2-minute span in the second quarter. He finished that spurt with a

bucket inside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem like we had that big of a lead through the game,â&#x20AC;? Shaner said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but when they started to press, I figured we were up by a bunch.â&#x20AC;? Sharpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3 capped a Telegraph surge that featured a McKinley coast-tocoast layup off a steal, a McKinley kick-out pass to Cavanaugh for a topof-the-key 3, and a pair of Jordan Ernst kick-out passes to his Amboy teammate Damon Quest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had those runs, and it felt like the game was a lot closer,â&#x20AC;? Cavanaugh said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But then I looked up at the scoreboard early in the fourth quarter, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re down 16. Both teams played great, but they just hit more shots than we did.â&#x20AC;? The Gazette finished 39-for-77 (50.6 percent), while the Telegraph shot 26-for-62 (41.9 percent). The big difference was behind the arc, where the Gazette hit 14-for-34 (41.2 percent), and the Telegraph was just 8-for29 (27.6 percent). The Gazette outrebounded the Telegraph 43-30, and the teams combined for 17 turnovers. Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Zach Rehmert had 14 points, five rebounds and two assists for the Gazette, while Dail added 11 points, seven rebounds, three assists and three blocks. Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s McKinley and Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Payan led the Telegraph with 11 points apiece, with McKinley pulling down four rebounds, dishing three assists and nabbing three steals.

Gazette girls struggle on offensive end HAKE

CONTINUED FROM B1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tired at all,â&#x20AC;? Hake said while standing in the bleachers following the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was hot, and the heat was crazy, but I just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get tired out there.â&#x20AC;? Hake scored 12 secondhalf points, as her shots buzzed the twine on the way through the hoop. She was the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Most Valuable Player, finishing with a double-double, buoyed by a gamehigh in points (18) and rebounds (13). She also added an assist in the fourth quarter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were a little worried about their size coming in,â&#x20AC;? Hake said of the Gazette squad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kiarra [Harris] especially. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all big and strong.â&#x20AC;? Harris, a 5-foot, 10-inch forward, surprised Hake by finishing with two points. Hake took advantage of some extra room and quickly found her rhythm in a fast-paced first quarter. She scored four quick points on a right-handed layup, and hit both free throws on the next possession after being fouled. Mary Alice Oswalt, a Newman graduate who will play basketball and tennis next season at Sauk Valley Community College, led the firstquarter scoring with six points for the Telegraph squad. She finished with eight points and 11 rebounds. Hake was the only player on either the Gazette or Telegraph teams to score in double figures. She was deadly from mid-range, and used that slick turnaround jumper in the paint to compliment her shots from the elbow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just kind of got into a zone there,â&#x20AC;? Hake said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even realize I was up there in points.â&#x20AC;? The Telegraph cruised offensively, scoring at least 10 points in each quarter, and worked hard defensively to limit easy shots. The Gazette, led by

Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Madeline Sanders fouls Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kayleen Terrock on Thursday during the SVM All-Star Classic. Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kaitlyn Bauer, who finished with nine points, struggled offensively and scored its most points in a quarter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 10 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in the third. They were also limited to two points, a Taylor Grenoble layup, in the the second quarter. The Gazette finished 11-for-50 shooting, including a 1-for-14 mark in the second. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was competitive at the start,â&#x20AC;? Bauer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But you could tell we all kind of had our summer legs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got pretty tired quickly, but we all came into the game thinking that it was just all about having fun.â&#x20AC;? The game also provided a reunion for two old friends. Dixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brooke Bailey and Oswalt were able to play together on the same team for the first time since the two were in middle school at St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Dixon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was super cool to play with her, and really nice to reunite,â&#x20AC;? Bailey said. She said the two havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talked as much as either would have liked since attending different high schools, but enjoyed the time the two had together on the court. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got to talk and catch up,â&#x20AC;? Bailey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was fun. I think every senior should play in this game.â&#x20AC;?

A host of possibilities will develop Friday, June 20, 2014

A host of possibilities will develop this year, but it will be up to you to turn these opportunities into something viable. You are tenacious and talented, so follow your heart and do whatever it takes to overcome any unfavorable issues that could threaten your triumph.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -With your energetic and playful way of dealing with people, you will have no trouble attracting new friendships. Put your ideas into motion to gain valuable support. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A hardheaded attitude will stir up trouble. If you are unwilling to make concessions, you will risk getting into a conflict with a colleague, friend or lover. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Your charm and charisma will attract attention. Take your place in the spotlight and enjoy it. Your enthusiasm will lead to an offer you cannot refuse.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your personal life is due for an interesting change. Greater cash flow is apparent, and it will come

from an unexpected source. Take action and make the most of your good fortune.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Some experiences are bound to be painful. Don’t obsess about your problems. You don’t need to blame yourself or feel guilty for a negative event that develops. Look for and accentuate the positive. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Major career changes lie ahead. Take command of your future by staying informed and in touch with the people and tools that you need to advance.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You have been dawdling long enough. Let today be the starting point for all of the alterations and improvements you have been considering. It’s up to you to take the initiative.

if you ask for help. Friends and colleagues will gladly come to your aid if they know you are struggling. Put your pride aside.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- The downside of having a vivid imagination is that ideas may take the place of action. You know what you want out of life, so go out and get it. It’s time to follow through.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You don’t have to be a professional to enjoy a sporting challenge. Find an amateur activity that interests you, and test your skills. Physical fitness will improve your mindset.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may stand out for all the wrong reasons. Play by the rules. Be extra careful when dealing with authority figures or government agencies, or discussing legal matters.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- For every step forward, you will take two steps back. You can save yourself some aggravation if you put major decisions on hold while you reassess your plans for the future. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You can lighten your load
