It took me about 10 seconds to realize how much Tom Thayer loves Joliet. Thayer – a member of the 1985-86 Super Bowl-winning Chicago Bears team who is the commentator on WBBM for Chicago Bears broadcasts and contributes to the Steve Dahl podcast – visited The Herald-News on Thursday. I had the opportunity to chat with him for about a half hour. Thayer is a Joliet boy through and through. He was born here, went to Cathedral of St. Raymond Catholic School, then Joliet Catholic for high school. Growing up, he said, his dream was to play football under the lights at Joliet Memorial Stadium. “The great thing about Joliet was, it created aspirations and dreams that were as lofty as any in the world,” he told me. Play football he did – and not just at Joliet Memorial Stadium. He went on to play for Notre Dame in college – part of the reason he chose to go there was because it was so close to home – then for the Bears and the Miami Dolphins. He said it’s always a proud moment when he can represent Joliet – such as when his name and hometown were announced at the Super Bowl. Compliments he’s received, he said, often are about his strong, positive work ethic. That comes from being from Joliet, he said, a place that values a hard day’s work. I’ve met a few athletes and celebrities in my career as a journalist, and none have been, at first meeting, as easy-going or modest as Thayer was. The man still cuts his parents’ lawn – the same lawn he’s been cutting for about 50 years. “I don’t know what Zen is, but it is a Zen-like thing,” he said. “You are back to the same footprints that you walked in when you were 8 years old pushing a lawnmower, and 10 and 12. It’s really a great experience.” That struck a chord with me – as

well as a memory – of cutting the lawn at my parents’ house. As I remember it, when I was maybe 8 or 10, my two older brothers and I decided to ask our parents for an allowance for doing chores around the house. My dad listened to us, then said something along the lines of, “You live in my house, eat my food and wear clothes I pay for. The least you can do is cut my lawn.” As a child, I resented that statement, and probably muttered some unprintable words as I pushed the lawnmower around the yard. As an adult, I’m thankful I had parents who taught me to be thankful for the blessings we had, to show appreciation for those who bestowed such gifts, and value of a hard day’s work. If he ever asked, I’d cut my dad’s lawn in a heartbeat. Maybe I should do it some day without being asked. In listening to Thayer describe the Joliet he so loves, it’s evident I’ve found a new place that embodies those same values. That makes me feel a little more at home than I have in the past year or so – and eager to move here and really immerse myself in this community. Thayer has graciously agreed to help Shaw Media with some promotional efforts as we continue to acquaint ourselves with and become involved in the community. We couldn’t be happier to have someone who wholeheartedly loves this community as our partner.

JOLIET – A 50-year-old woman from Joliet was killed Saturday in a car crash. Police were called about 10:30 a.m. Saturday to the

I-55 West Frontage Road between Oak Tree Lane and Bennet Lane for a report of an accident, according to an Illinois State Police news release. A preliminary investigation found that a Pontiac

Vibe driven by Bartley Perry, 53, of Joliet, pulled out of the forest preserve property onto the road, causing the owner of a Chevrolet Cruze, Daniel Schmitt, 29, of Plainfield, to brake suddenly.

The Chevrolet went into the northbound lane, hitting a Saturn SI driven by Deborah L. Huffer, 50, of Joliet. Huffer was pronounced dead at St. Joseph Medical Center.

Executive director of Plainfield Twp. Park District resigns By VIKAAS SHANKER

Timeline of executive director changes PLAINFIELD – Since he was hired in May, former Executive Director Garrett Peck’s controversial vision for the Plainfield Township Park District was protested and ridiculed at numerous public board meetings. “We’re hearing more [from] people now than in the 10 years I’ve been on the board,” Commissioner Larry Newton said Thursday, before Peck resigned. Where the park district goes now that Peck has resigned is unknown. The board of commissioners appointed Assistant Executive Director Gene Coldwater to take over as interim executive director Friday night, but he couldn’t Garrett Peck provide specific goals for the park district during an interview Friday afternoon. “Garrett’s resignation was a shock to me,” Coldwater said. “I still don’t know a lot of what’s happening. And I’ll have more than a few talks with the board about what they expect from me.” Newton and Commissioner Mary Kay Ludemann have repeatedly criticized Peck’s hiring and decisions, but their votes on the board were drowned out by a board majority that publicly supported Peck, including President Peter Hurtado, Vice President Janet Silosky and Commissioner Peter Steinys. “It’s a board majority run in a way that kind of shut out Larry and me,” Ludemann said, adding that she only knew what was in the board packets. “I’m still a little cautious

Vikaas Shanker –

The Plainfield Township Park District Commissioners (from left) Larry Newton, Peter Steinys, Mary Kay Ludemann, Janet Silosky and Peter Hurtado, and park district officials Wendi Calabrese, Matt Campbell and Gene Coldwater listen to public comments Friday before entering executive session during a board meeting at the Heritage Professional Center in Plainfield. because of the way they operate. Communication has been banned. Employees were ordered that they couldn’t talk to me.” Coldwater said he doesn’t want politics and communication breakdowns to pervade the park district. “When I was promoted [to assistant executive director], I told Peck he can be the politician but I want to run the park district,” Coldwater said. “I’m not a politician. I’m going to have to work with the whole board.” Coldwater said he isn’t sure if he’ll pursue the executive director position.

Peck era In his resignation letter, Peck said he accomplished many positive things, including savings on health insurance for employees, a shuttle bus with a wheelchair lift, plans for an indoor soccer facility, a veterans program, and more than $1.5 million in additional revenue to expand services.

But critics say Peck, who also is a Plainfield village trustee, has done more harm than good. Under Peck’s administration, the park district let go of two senior park officials, was found to be in violation of labor laws, and had public spats with an online media outlet and another village trustee. When the board majority hired Peck to be the new executive director over former Superintendent of Planning Cameron Bettin, who was being groomed for the position, residents started protesting with words like “cronyism,” “patronage” and “unqualified.” That last word gave fuel to Peck, who wanted to prove his doubters wrong. While he had no experience in parks and recreation, he relied on his business knowledge to restructure the parks department. “When I set my mind on something, I do it and I do it well,” Peck said in a Monday interview. “All these people keep saying

I’m unqualified. When someone says I can’t do it, that just makes me more determined to finish what I started.” Peck started outsourcing the planning department in November by signing a planning and design services retainer with Naperville-based Hitchcock Design Group, saying it would save the park district money. He also said he planned to overhaul the recreation department. He never got that far.

Next step Peck’s departure may mean a new vision for the board. But even commissioners don’t know what direction the park district will take. “We are now entering a critical period of transition; one which will be characterized first and foremost by transparency and public involvement,” Hurtado said in a statement. “It is vital on this occasion that the board forms a broad consensus in regard to who is eventually selected to fill

• March 14, 2013: Cameron Bettin signs a contract to become the assistant executive director and be promoted to executive director July 1. • April 9: New board majority is elected. • May 8: New board takes office and installs Garrett Peck, also a Plainfield village trustee, as secretary. • May 11: Board votes to fire Bettin and make Peck executive director. • June 27: Peck and Bettin sign an amendment to Bettin’s contract, removing the clause to make him executive director and keep him employed as assistant executive director until Dec. 31. • Nov. 18: Peck signs a preliminary planning and design services retainer agreement with Naperville-based Hitchcock Design Group, signaling the end of the district’s planning department. • Dec. 20: Bettin and Park District employee James Less sign resignation letters with compensation and confidentiality clauses. • Jan. 9, 2014: The Illinois Labor Relations Board rules that Peck violated state labor laws in the termination of former employee Joel Shumaker. • Jan. 20: Park district announces Gene Coldwater is promoted to assistant executive director. • Jan. 21: Peck informs Plainfield Patch the park district is ceasing all communication with the online media outlet. • Jan. 22: Board President Peter Hurtado apologizes to the Plainfield Patch, saying Peck’s “remarks were uncalled for.” • Jan. 23: Peck resigns. • Jan. 24: The board officially removes Peck as board secretary and appoints Wendi Calabrese, the executive assistant of the park district, to that post. The board also appoints Coldwater as interim executive director. the current vacancy.” Ludemann said that consensus needs to include her and Newton. “As a board we need to together decide on who needs to be the next director,” Ludemann said. “The whole board needs to decide.” The position and litigation were discussed by commissioners in closed session at a special board meeting Friday night, Ludemann said. The meeting was originally scheduled Wednesday by Peck to discuss litigation. After executive session, the board officially removed Peck as board secretary and appointed Wendi Calabrese, the executive assistant of the park district, along with appointing

Coldwater as interim executive director. Plainfield resident Jamey Alwood was one of two residents who, during the public comment portion of Friday’s meeting, asked Hurtado, Silosky and Steinys to resign. “Those three people, it’s just what they’ve done,” Alwood said about Peck’s hiring. “I don’t care if you’re a Republican or Democrat. It’s just wrong.”

Joliet Area Sports Hall of Fame’s future is uncertain, hasn’t selected a class since 2010 By JIM DALLKE

Notable inductees JOLIET – So, you’re interested in checking out the Joliet Area Sports Hall of Fame. All you have to do is find an open metered parking spot near the Joliet Slammers baseball stadium, walk through the main office door on the third-base side, meet Kyle – the perfectly nice director of ticket sales – follow Kyle through a dark hallway underneath the Slammers baseball field, continue through a set of double-doors, have Kyle unlock a door that says “Authorized Personnel,” wait for Kyle to turn on the lights, and enjoy! You’ve made it inside the Hall of Fame. It’s no wonder the city wants to relocate the Hall of Fame, which has lost steam – and committee member support – since its inception in 2003. The Joliet Area Sports Hall of Fame hasn’t inducted a new class since 2010, and the hall’s future remains in doubt as the city and others push to move the local sports heroes’ shrine from the Slammers stadium to the Joliet Area Historical Museum. “It makes sense to move the artifacts,” said Dave Laketa, head of the Hall of Fame selection committee. “A lot more people are going to visit the historical museum.” But moving the Hall of Fame to the historical museum is far from a done deal, according to museum

Lathan Goumas –

Memorabilia of Joliet Area Sports Hall of Fame member George Mikan sits in a display case in the Hall of Fame at Silver Cross Field on Friday. The 45-person hall of fame, which began in 2003, has not had a new class inducted since 2010. Executive Director Greg Peerbolte. First, the idea would have to be approved by the museum board. The board has a meeting Monday but the Hall of Fame likely won’t be on the agenda, Peerbolte said. “It’s that far on the back burner,” he said. “We have a lot more work with other committees before we discuss [the Hall of Fame].” If it is eventually approved, the museum expects it needs to raise $50,000 in donations to build a room to house the hall of fame, Peerbolte said. “We haven’t raised $1 to pursue that yet,” he said. The Hall of Fame’s 2003 inaugural class had 13 inductees, including Joliet Catholic basketball star and Laker great George Mikan, the all-time winningest college baseball coach Gordie Gillespie, and gold-medal Olympic

women’s basketball player Cathy Boswell. About 20 Hall of Fame committee members helped select the first class, which had support from then-Deputy City Manager Jim Shapard and later City Manager Thomas Thanas. Thanas and Shapard have since left their jobs with the city, as well as Joliet communications manager Rebecca Lantka, who spearheaded the Hall of Fame in 2010 but lost her position in city budget cuts. After selecting a Hall of Fame class each year through 2006, and again in 2008 and 2010, the exhibit room in city-owned Silver Cross Field has remained mostly dark. The changeover of city officials, a lack of support from the hall’s own committee – the 20 committee members has dwindled down to three – and a struggling economy,

kept the Hall of Fame off the radar for many in Joliet, Laketa said. “We’re in a state of transition,” Laketa said. “People were taking different responsibilities. People were adding more to their plates due to budgets within the city. … People were focused on the day-to-day operations of the city instead of the hall, and rightfully so.” After years went by with no Hall of Fame classes and as the faces of leadership changed, it became unclear who was actually in charge of the event. “We take our charge from the city,” Laketa said. “They tell us what to do and when and stuff like that. It’s their project. We just serve as volunteers on the election committee.” “First of all, there hasn’t been a meeting,” Joliet Mayor Tom Giarrante said

Some notable Joliet Area Sports Hall of Fame inductees: • George Mikan (Joliet Catholic basketball, Minneapolis Lakers) • Don Ladas (Radio bordcaster, “The Voice of Joliet”) • Cathy Boswell (Joliet West basketball, Olympic gold medal winner) • Jesse Barfield (Joliet Central baseball, Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees) • Jim Stefanich (Joliet bowler, in the PBA Hall of Fame) • Gordie Gillespie (Lewis University and University of St. Francis baseball coach, all-time winningest college baseball coach; Joliet Catholic High School football coach)

• Tom Haller (Lockport baseball, San Fransisco Giants, L.A. Dodgers, Detroit Tigers) • Ed Spiezio (Joliet Township baseball, San Diego Padres, St. Louis Cardinals, White Sox) • Ray Klootwyk (Joliet Township/Joliet West football coach) • Bill Haller (Lockport, Major League Baseball umpire) • Billy Boy Thompson (Joliet Township, amateur heavyweight boxing champion) • Tom Thayer (Joliet Catholic football, Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins) • Walter Downing (Providence basketball, Mr. Basketball in 1981)

when asked why there hasn’t been a new class since 2010. “No one has come forward with any suggestions for who to induct. “The first few we had were big ceremonies. … To have a meeting and to actually have a ceremony, there is some cost involved. But it’s not really that much. We just haven’t had a meeting.” Giarrante, who is the chairman of the baseball committee, said the Slammers management want to move the exhibit so they can hold more special events in the room. Giarrante has been a proponent of moving the hall to the historical museum, which would give it more room and better visibility. But “nothing is going to get done until they raise the $50,000,” he said.

Peerbolte said if everything went smoothly – the museum board approves the move and the donations are raised – the earliest the new hall of fame would open would be in “a year or a year and a half.” Laketa said there’s a possibility that the selection committee could induct a class before the move, but likely not before summer 2015. The confusion surrounding the hall has been a source of frustration for Laketa, who said a thriving hall of fame is important for the city of Joliet. “I think it really does talk about your community,” he said. “I think people get a feel for the work ethic of the area. … It allows for kids growing up the opportunity to dream. If they work hard enough they can be in this same position.”

Sheriff ’s race heats up Both Republicans have some things to answer for from the past BRIAN STANLEY WILL COUNTY – Ken Kaupas recently recalled a conversation last year after he announced his plans to run for Will County Sheriff. Kaupas would not name the other individual, but said he is “a higher-up” in the campaign of Nick Ficarello, his opponent in the Republican primary. “I was told if I didn’t run against Nick, I would receive a supervisor position in his administration. When I turned down the offer, I was told, ‘Get ready for a dirty campaign,’ ’’ Kaupas said. Ficarello denied offering or authorizing anyone to offer Kaupas a position in exchange not to run. The campaign heated up this week when information surfaced about an incident from Kaupas’ past career with the Illinois State Police, where he was suspended for 10 days in 2002 Kaupas for improper conduct. While Kaupas was busy defending himself this week. Ficarello himself may face scrutiny before the campaign is done on his own role in leading two botched sheriff’s investigations: The arrest of Kevin Fox, who eventually was cleared of allegations that he murdered his daughter; and the arrests of several local hotel owners for credit card theft, all of whom were cleared within a matter of weeks as the case fell apart. Kaupas now is a deputy chief in the Will County

“I was told if I didn’t run against Nick, I would receive a supervisor position in his administration. When I turned down the offer, I was told, ‘Get ready for a dirty campaign.’ ” Ken Kaupas Will County Sheriff candidate

Sheriff’s Department and is also a second-cousin of Sheriff Paul Kaupas, who is not seeking re-election. A retired sheriff’s lieutenant recently emailed documents about the 2002 suspension to members of the Police Chiefs Association of Will County, along with a letter indicating his alarm if Kaupas were elected. Stephen Knickrehm, who has contributed to Ficarello’s campaign, said he received the reports from an anonymous source. From November 2001 to January 2002, Kaupas’ secretary Karen Larson was to receive $18 an hour to transcribe wire recordings from organized crime and drug investigations, according to investigators. Kaupas arranged for off-duty clerical workers to transcribe the tapes for $15 an hour; Larson would get $2 per hour and Kaupas would keep $1 as a “finder’s fee,” the report said. “Larson was reluctant to enter into this business relationship, but due to Kaupas’ position she felt obligated to agree to the arrangement,” the report said. Kaupas then “failed to truthfully answer questions” when asked about the incident and was sus-

pended for 10 days, according to the report. Kaupas said earlier this week he wanted to comment on several aspects of the report, but would not do so until it was reviewed by his campaign advisers. He retired from the state police in good standing in 2009. The following year, he was hired by Sheriff Kaupas to succeed the retired Ficarello as deputy chief of investigations. Kaupas also is facing a lawsuit from former Deputy Josh Fazio, who said the deputy chief ordered him to hack into his wife’s iPad to investigate whether she was having an affair in 2012. Fazio said when he complained about the order he was demoted in retaliation, according to the suit. Fazio resigned from the department after being transferred from investigations to patrol. “I believe Ken Kaupas would not be able to pass a background check for a probationary officer on the sheriff’s department based on his past history, much less qualify to run for sheriff,” Ficarello said. Ficarello also said he is not to blame for the Kevin Fox and hotel credit card

cases – which ended up costing the county millions of dollars from civil lawsuits – even though he ran the investigations. Ficarello said he came into the 2004 Riley Fox homicide investigation that targeted her father, Kevin, two weeks after the 4-year-old girl’s slaying and “major decisions had already been made prior to that.” Ficarello said he and his immediate superior wanted the Secret Service to review “Operation Sleepover,” but were overruled on that request. In 2006 an informant told police he was buying credit card numbers from employees and owners at local hotels. A dozen people were arrested among great media fanfare, but the case fell apart when it was discovered the informant had fabricated evidence. “I wanted another agency more familiar with credit card fraud involved in the case,” Ficarello said. Defending his own record in the sheriff’s department, Ficarello said he has only one disciplinary incident in his files. “I got one day off in 1979 for a car accident that I would describe as a fender-bender. That’s the only discipline I received in a 31-year-career with the department,” he said. The primary is March 18. The Republican winner will face off against either Sheriff’s Lt. Steve Egan, Sgt. Mike Kelley or retired deputy Ed Bradley from the Democrats in November.

Tri-State Asphalt looking to annex 12 acres to location By CHRISTINA CHAPMAN–VAN YPEREN MORRIS – Tri-State Asphalt of Morris is working with the city to expand its location. The Morris City Council’s Parks and Annexation Committee and the Water and Sewer Committee held a combined meeting Wednesday to discuss a proposed annexation agreement with the asphalt company to annex about 12 acres into the city, Mayor Richard Kopczick said Thursday. According to the company’s website, tsasphalt. com, it produces and supplies quality road and industrial-grade asphalt

emulsions. The asphalt company plans to annex 12 acres into Morris. Tri-State Asphalt was founded in 1984 and has been owned by Todd Weist since 2010. “The business has expanded. They are doing a lot of shipping from here all over the Midwest,” Building and Zoning Officer Bill Cheshareck said. The 12 additional acres would be used as a staging area for loading and unloading, Cheshareck said. At this time, there are no plans to build any structures on the land, Cheshareck said, but a stone base would be put down to accommodate the large equipment. He said Weist mentioned possibly putting in

a landscape berm between the current buildings. A detention pond also is planned. Because all property being annexed into the city comes in as residential, the project is scheduled to go before the Planning Commission this week to request a zoning change to Manufacturing-2 to fit in with the surrounding zoning. It would then go before the full council for approval at its Feb. 3 meeting. In other business, Kopczick said the committee heard a request from the Grundy-Three Rivers Habitat for Humanity. The organization is putting the finishing touches on its second home in its Hancock Page subdivision.

Lewis death remains under investigation BRIAN STANLEY ROMEOVILLE – Tests that should reveal how a man found dead Jan. 16 in a Lewis University dorm died should be completed early next month. Will County Coroner Patrick K. O’Neil said he expects toxicology results during the first week of February for the investigation into the death of Elvis Dominguez-Mejia, 22. Dominguez-Mejia was not a student, but was visiting a friend who resides at Fitzpatrick Hall at Lewis University the night before, authorities said. “[The student] told investigators his friend showed up already impaired and they continued drinking,” O’Neil said.

“He woke up the next morning to go to class and found [Dominguez-Mejia] unresponsive on the floor.” Romeoville police took over the investigation from campus police and said Dominguez-Mejia’s death may have been caused by excessive alcohol consumption. Foul play is not suspected. University spokeswoman Michelle Fregoso said the student, who is older than 21, will face an administrative review and possible hearing relating to the incident after the police investigation is completed. The Lewis student handbook says “alcohol may be possessed and consumed in moderation by those students 21 or older

in private rooms in the residence halls.” A maximum of two cases of beer, or three liters of wine or liquor, are allowed in a room at any one time “to encourage moderation.” Fregoso said the recent death had not changed any student policies or staff training. Resident advisers undergo drug and alcohol training from police and health workers while an alcohol seminar is part of orientation for new students. The death is the second on campus related to drugs or alcohol in little more than a year. In November 2012, Anna Marinier, 20, of Frankfort, died from a heroin overdose while visiting a student in her dorm room. Lewis student

Jamie L. Olson, 21, of Tinley Park, was arrested for obstructing justice after “taking steps to conceal her involvement” in her friend’s death. Fregoso said Lewis has a “zero tolerance” narcotics policy and Olson chose to withdraw from the school instead of going through the college’s judicial process. Olson served six months in jail before being released on probation in May as part of a plea deal, according to the Will County State’s Attorney’s office. The state’s attorney has filed a petition to revoke Olson’s probation after she failed a drug test, which was one of the conditions of her release. She is scheduled to appear in court April 23.

Peterson may face hearing to take away his pension By BRIAN STANLEY BOLINGBROOK – A special adviser says Bolingbrook should go ahead with a hearing that could take away Drew Peterson’s police pension. The retired Bolingbrook police sergeant was convicted in September 2012 of the March 2004 murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. He was sentenced to 38 years in Drew prison and Peterson remains the main suspect in the October 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson. An attorney hired by the Bolingbrook Police Pension Board to review Peterson’s case advised earlier this month that there is enough evidence to consider taking away the pension. Bolingbrook Police Pension Board attorney Richard Reimer said the board had questioned whether Peterson’s conviction terminated his rights to a pension by committing a

Joliet Professional Pharmacy welcomes Kim Hess PharmD, RPh (formerly of Dominicks) to our growing team

“I think it’s unlikely a court would authorize the writ to have him released from prison to be there in person and the Open Meetings Act requires that it must be held in Bolingbrook, so I’d expect some kind of video conference. Richard Reimer Bolingbrook Police Pension Board attorney “job-related felony.” Reimer had recommended that the board hire pension fund specialist, Charles Atwell, to review the case. “He was instructed to review as much of the transcripts and evidence from the hearings as he could and give an opinion whether that provided sufficient grounds for a [pension board] hearing,” Reimer said. On Jan. 9, Atwell submitted a single-page report to Reimer and the pension board members that said he felt it did. The pension board will schedule a meeting to decide whether or not to pursue that hearing. Reimer expects that to occur in “the next couple of weeks.” If the hearing is given the green light, Peterson will have the right to attend while Atwell presents evi-

dence as a third-party hired by the pension board. Peterson, now in the Menard Correctional Center, is not likely to be at the hearing in person, Reimer said. “I think it’s unlikely a court would authorize the writ to have him released from prison to be there in person and the Open Meetings Act requires that it must be held in Bolingbrook, so I’d expect some kind of video conference,” Reimer said. Peterson’s attorney Steven Greenberg said last year his client was not found guilty of any official misconduct that would warrant ending his pension, and he expects Peterson will challenge any attempt by the board to take it away. Greenberg did not immediately return a call asking for comment Friday.

Police arrest 3 men, seize $3M in drugs By BRIAN STANLEY BOLINGBROOK – Three men were arrested Thursday with $3 million worth of heroin, police said. A recent joint investigation by the Metropolitan Area Narcotics Squad and Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms had been targeting Uriel A. Quintana, according to MANS Director Mike Weber. “We had information he was dealing heroin and were watching him around 5 p.m. when he met with two men in a blue Chevy Avalanche parked near the Bolingbrook Promenade,” Weber said. Quintana, 25, of the 300 block of South Thornwood Drive in Lindenhurst, got out of the Avalanche carrying a 60-quart cooler, which Weber said “struck [the agents watching] as unusual in the cold weather.” Quintana tried to run when agents moved in on him, but was grabbed quickly. The cooler had three kilos of heroin inside, Weber said. Two Joliet men who were allegedly inside the Avalanche, Santiago Diaz, 39, of the 300 block of North Larkin Avenue, and Jesus M. Rodriguez, 35, of the 3000 block of Dan Ireland Drive, were also taken into custody. Weber said the vehicle was seized.

School janitor arrested on drug charges By BRIAN STANLEY JOLIET – A janitor at Sator Sanchez Elementary School was arrested Thursday on drug charges. Police raided Rodney L. Kelly’s home in the 5300 block of Bridlewood Drive while he was at work. They then went to the school to arrest Kelly, 48, at 12:30 p.m. Thursday. Kelly’s name was brought to the attention of the narcotics unit after the police department

received complaints he was dealing drugs out of his residence, Cmdr. Al Roechner said. At 10:49 a.m. police used a search warrant to raid the house and found a gram of cocaine, 47 grams of marijuana, a .22-caliber revolver, digital scales and drug packaging material, Roechner said. Kelly was booked into the county jail on charges of delivery of marijuana, drug possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and unauthorized possession of a firearm.

Polish language school may move to Lemont By DAN FARNHAM LEMONT – A Polish language school may be moving to Lemont. Lemont-Bromberek Combined School District 113A is in discussions with the John Paul II Polish Language School about leasing some of the classrooms at Central, which closed in 2011. Board of Education member Patrick Kerrigan, who leads a committee on the future of the school, brought up the proposal during the board’s meet-

ing Wednesday. He said the Polish school currently meets at Ss. Cyril and Methodius Parish and at a space in Romeoville, but that it is looking to consolidate to one location. The school would use the building after normal school hours on Fridays and all day on Saturdays. Board member Al Malley said he likes the flexibility the lease would allow for the district if it wanted to reopen Central. “If we needed a school, we could both use it then,” he said.

Interim Superintendent Pamela Hollich said the district is prepared to start working on the specifics of a lease agreement and determining what the district would need to do as far as operation of the building. In the fall, the Lemont Park District also expressed interest in leasing the building. Kerrigan said he talked with park district board President Pat Sexton and they have not made a decision. The board also would like to move forward with

needed repairs to the roof of the school. Hollich said that May or June would be the most realistic time the repairs could be done. Director of Operations Pam Mazurek said the repairs are not urgent. “The roof repairs can be done at a later date,” she said. “It’s not something that could keep the building from reopening.” Board member Mike Aurelio asked for Requests for Proposal on the roof repair so the board could vote on the issue.

Chaplain, Bolingbrook man leads aid effort for Philippines By DANNY CIAMPRONE BOLINGBROOK – Few could imagine the sheer devastation that would transpire Nov. 8, 2013, in Southeast Asia. Homelessness, starvation and widespread destruction are now part of everyday life for millions in the Philippines who were victims of Typhoon Haiyan – one of the largest typhoons on record. More than 6,000 people were reportedly killed. Meanwhile here at home, all Dan Ocampo could do was watch the coverage in real time and hope for the best as the native Filipino still has family in the area since coming to the United States in 2001. “We were watching it closely when they said it was about to touch down, so it was almost like the countdown with the New Year,” said Ocampo, chaplain at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital. “It was so enormous that no one was really ready for it.” Fortunately for the Bolingbrook resident, his family lives in the northern Philippines. Most of the destruction occurred in the southern to central regions of the island country. But he wasn’t spared from the heartache of losing loved ones. “I’ve lost a lot of my friends there … people I went to seminary and college with,” Ocampo said. Not long after the typhoon touched down, Ocampo got to work and organized a collection to send supplies to the ailing country. Adventist Hinsdale, along with other hospitals within Adventist Midwest Health, donated hospital

lines, medical supplies, hygiene items, clothing and food. Earlier this month, about 30 volunteers gathered in the Fellowship Hall at Fil-Am Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Hinsdale and packed the supplies for victims. “Everyone who responded was just so generous,” he said. Ocampo said while collections are no longer being gathered, there is still a great deal that needs to be done for a country that is still “not even five years” from being back to where it was. In much of the country, there are “tent cities” due to loss of shelter, and an influx in the amount of orphans.

“They were left behind by the parents who sacrificed their lives for the sake of the kids,” he said. “Most of them are being taken by the government because there’s no one to take care of them.” Ocampo said after four weeks there was a minimum of 300 boxes collected that were about 24 inches high and 21 inches wide full of supplies. He said what struck him the most was how much people were “driven by love.” “It is out of the heartbeat that you can feel the agony and the needs of other people and I believe whoever in the world needs any helping, those who have been driven by love can do this,” he said.

NEWS BRIEFS Ill. hospital visitors limited because of flu URBANA – Some Illinois hospitals are barring sick visitors or regulating their visits to limit the spread of flu. The (Champaign) News-Gazette reported Saturday that hospitals in Urbana and Hoopeston imposed new rules, joining another Urbana hospital and one in Danville, which had set guidelines earlier in the week. Meanwhile, The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reported that hospitals in Lincoln and Gibson City also have strictly limited visits. But hospitals in Bloomington, Normal and Pontiac have seen decreases in flu cases. Illinois Department of Public Health statistics indicate that 450 people have been in intensive care units with flu this season, with 37 deaths, according to The Pantagraph.

Rare dust storm closes Illinois highway CARLINVILLE – A rare dust storm forced state transportation authorities to shut down a 5-mile stretch of a central Illinois highway because of low visibility and a series of crashes. Friday’s dust storm near Carlinville caused several car crashes on Illinois 108, with drivers saying they couldn’t see beyond the hoods of their cars, The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reported.

Ill. gov. candidates lukewarm on gambling By SARA BURNETT The Associated Press CHICAGO – As another push gets underway to add five new casinos in Illinois and slot machines at Chicago’s two international airports, most of the candidates for governor in 2014 are lukewarm about the plan, despite supporters’ claims that it could bring in up to $1 billion per year for the financially struggling state. All four Republicans responding to a questionnaire from The Associated Press said they either oppose new gambling or support it only on a limited basis and with the backing of local governments. Two GOP candidates – state Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady – also stressed the need to protect the horse racing industry and the

agricultural jobs it supports. Gov. Pat Quinn, who is seeking re-election, has vetoed two previous gambling bills, saying they didn’t include enough ethical protections. The Chicago Democrat also has said he will only sign legislation that provides sufficient oversight of a Chicago casino and directs new revenues to education. The sponsor of the gambling expansion bill has scheduled a public hearing Tuesday in East St. Louis. State Rep. Bob Rita said it will be first in a series of hearings scheduled as the Illinois General Assembly begins its spring session next week.

The bill currently calls for adding casinos in Rockford, Danville, Chicago’s south suburbs and Lake County in addition to Chicago. It would also allow current and future casino licensees to apply for an online gambling license and add slot machines at the state’s horse-racing tracks and O’Hare and Midway international airports. It’s unclear if any changes will be made to the legislation. But supporters say it could generate between $400 million and $1 billion annually. The measure would put the bulk of revenue from brick-andmortar gambling toward school funding. Brady, Dillard, state Treasurer Dan Rutherford and businessman Bruce Rauner are seeking the GOP nomination in the

March primary. Rutherford, of Chenoa, said that in general, he doesn’t support expansion of gambling “simply to raise more state revenue.” “If a gaming expansion bill was to be presented with proper regulation and sufficient oversight, I would be willing to entertain a discussion,” he said. Rutherford also said decisions about how to spend gambling revenue “should be part of a broader discussion of revenues and expenditures as we seek to return to fiscal stability.” Rauner stated in his questionnaire, and again during a debate in Peoria this week, that local communities should drive the decisions about where to add casinos. “I don’t gamble. I don’t like gambling,” the political newcomer from

Winnetka said during the debate. “I believe casinos and gambling is here. We should allow our local governments to decide for themselves.” In the AP questionnaire, Rauner said any new gambling revenue should be invested in “the state’s top three priorities: education, infrastructure and lowering the tax burden.” Dillard, of Hinsdale, said he supports “limited casino expansion” to relieve state finances if it’s approved locally. He said he opposed a 2009 video gambling law, but supports slot machines at race tracks because the increased revenue would also help Illinois’ agriculture industry, which receives “a significant amount” of its revenues from horse racing.

Pot stores might have to deal only in cash By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SPRINGFIELD – People who buy medical marijuana in Illinois might find out it’s cash-only. Even though lawmakers and Gov. Pat Quinn approved last summer the use of cannabis for certain medical conditions, selling and buying it remains a federal offense. So dispensaries set up to distribute it may not be able to open bank accounts or get a line of credit, according to the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers in a report

Saturday. “What it means for a lot of businesses is that they’re forced to operate entirely in cash,” said Taylor West, deputy director of the National Cannabis Industry Association in Washington. “That’s not just the sales side. It also affects the business side.” That means higher risk for dispensary staff members and public safety, according to West. Marijuana stores will have to have a bundle of cash to pay bills, meet payroll and dole out tax payments. That’s why state Sen.

Jason Barickman, a Bloomington Republican, opposed the legislation. “It’s as if the majority who supported this bill shrugged off the fact that this is prohibited by federal law,” he said. “ ... We would appear to be enacting an entire bureaucracy in our state for one drug and in doing so, we’re ignoring all of the implications that this would have on a federal level.” The Illinois law authorizes a pilot program to legalize medical marijuana. Access rules have been called some of the nation’s

toughest, but regulations are still being written. Preliminary rules for the program were released last week. They call for patients to provide fingerprints, submit to background checks, pay $150 annually for special photo IDs and surrender firearms cards. West said businesses in other states that have legalized marijuana have faced problems with finances. Banks could run into trouble with federal officials for violating drug-trafficking and money-laundering laws by do-

ing business with vendors. The sponsor of the initiative isn’t concerned. He says Illinois should be more concerned with helping people with debilitating illnesses for whom marijuana, smoked or eaten, often gives relief from pain or other problems. “I would say that’s a feeble excuse for not improving the lives of thousands of sick people,” said Rep. Lou Lang, a Skokie Democrat. “It didn’t bother 20 other states, and there’s no reason Illinois can’t take care of its sick people.”

NATION&WORLD NEWS BRIEF No decision on order to end life support FORT WORTH – Executives from a Texas hospital conferred with the county district attorney’s office Saturday to determine their next step, after a judge ordered the hospital to remove a pregnant, brain-dead woman from life support. Both the hospital and family agree that Marlise Munoz meets the criteria to be considered brain-dead – which means she is dead both medically and under Texas law – and that her fetus could not be born alive this early in pregnancy. But the hospital says it’s obligated to protect the fetus, while Munoz’s husband, Erick Munoz, says his wife wouldn’t have wanted to be kept in this condition. His attorneys have said medical records show the fetus is “distinctly abnormal.” Wallace sided with Erick Munoz on Friday and gave the Fort Worth hospital until 5 p.m. Monday to take Marlise Munoz off life support.

Violence mars 3rd anniversary of Egypt uprising By MAGGIE MICHAEL and SARAH EL DEEB The Associated Press

CAIRO – The anniversary of Egypt’s 2011 uprising brought a violent display of the country’s furious divisions Saturday, as giant crowds danced at government-backed rallies and security forces crushed demonstrations by rival Islamists and some secular activists. Clashes nationwide killed at least 29 protesters, health officials said. The starkly contrasting scenes reflect the three years of turmoil Egypt has faced since the Jan. 25, 2011, revolution began and ultimately toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak, replacing him with a transitional military council. Last summer’s millions-strong demonstrations against Mubarak’s elected successor, Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, led to a military coup removing him. And as Egypt looks forward to presidential elections later this year, many celebrating Saturday in the famed Tahrir Square demanded army chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi run for president.

“El-Sissi saved the nation. It was up in the air like this helicopter and he carried it to safety,” said Mervat Khalifa, 62, sitting on the sidewalk and waving to a helicopter overhead. Military helicopters showered crowds in Tahrir with small flags and gift coupons to buy refrigerators, heaters, blankets and home appliances. Statebacked rallies also showcased prancing horses and traditional music for ecstatic crowds. Morsi’s supporters used Saturday’s anniversary to build new momentum in their defiance of the military and its political transition plan, despite being hit by a crippling police crackdown and rising public resentment against his Muslim Brotherhood group. “Anger is bigger than all. Repression sparks revolutions. The burning of Egypt won’t last,” a statement issued by a Brotherhood-led coalition said. The fiercest clashes raged in an eastern Cairo suburb, where Islamist supporters fought with security forces for hours in pitched street battles. Troops fired over the crowd to disperse protesters who

threw gasoline bombs. Protesters set up a field hospital to aid the wounded. Violence also was strong in the provinces. A car bomb exploded outside a security camp in the city of Suez, where gunmen clashed with police, witnesses said. Nine civilians were wounded in the bombing, authorities said. In neighboring Ismailiya, protesters chanting “down with military rule” also battled security forces. In Alexandria, a female protester was shot and killed during clashes, officials said. Two protesters were killed in the southern city of Minya, security officials said.

The clashes in the eastern Cairo suburb of Alf Maskan were fiercest. Protesters Mustafa Mohammed and Sami, who only gave his first name for fear of reprisals, said security personnel and rooftop snipers used live rounds against demonstrators. The gunfire struck a natural gas pipeline three times, Mohammed said. Sami said protesters threw gasoline bombs in the clashes, which wounded hundreds. Two security officials in the area described the situation as tense and said at least six people were killed. The protesters put the figure at 24. It was not immediately possible to reconcile the figures.

The clashes contrasted with scenes of celebration in Tahrir Square and other major squares in provincial capitals, where long queues of demonstrators lined up to enter the tightly secured areas through metal detectors. Some celebrating wore paper masks with el-Sissi’s picture and their rallies showed a ferociously anti-Islamist tone. Soldiers guarding Tahrir Square joined them in chanting: “The people want the execution of the Brotherhood.” A crowd beat a woman in a conservative headscarf and drove her away, believing she was a Brotherhood sympathizer.

Obama to focus on economic opportunity By JULIE PACE The Associated Press

Shoppers are evacuated by police after a shooting at The Mall in Columbia on Saturday in Columbia, Md. Police say three people died in a shooting at the mall in suburban Baltimore, including the presumed gunman.

3 dead after Md. mall shooting By ERIC TUCKER The Associated Press COLUMBIA, Md. – A man carrying a shotgun opened fire at a busy shopping mall Saturday in suburban Baltimore, killing two employees of a skate shop and then himself as panicked shoppers ran for cover, police said. Five others were injured. Police were still trying to determine the identity and motive of the gunman who killed a man and a woman, both in their 20s, at a skate shop called Zumiez on the upper level of the Mall in Columbia. Witnesses described hearing gunshots and screams as shoppers ducked into nearby stores and hid behind locked doors. Many found cover in stockrooms and barricaded themselves until the arrival of police, who searched store to store. By late afternoon, the mall had been cleared of shoppers and employees. Howard County Police Chief

William J. McMahon said at a news conference that authorities had difficulty identifying the gunman because of concerns he might be carrying explosives and were proceeding with an “abundance of caution.” “We do not know yet what caused the shooting incident,” he said. “We do not have a motive.” Someone called 911 at around 11:15 a.m. to report a shooting at the mall. Police responded to the scene within 2 minutes and found three people dead – including the apparent gunman near a gun and ammunition – either inside or outside the shop, which sells skateboards, clothing and accessories. McMahon said police were confident there was a single gunman. Police identified the victims as 21-year-old Brianna Benlolo of College Park, Md., and 25-year-old Tyler Johnson of Ellicott City, Md. Both worked at Zumiez. Benlolo’s grandfather, John Feins, said in a telephone interview

from Florida that his granddaughter had a 2-year-old son and that the job at Zumiez was her first since she went back to work after her son’s birth. “She was all excited because she was the manager there,” he said. Zumiez CEO Rick Brooks released a statement that the company is making counseling available for employees in the area. “The Zumiez team is a tight knit community and all of our hearts go out to Brianna and Tyler’s families,” he wrote. Howard County General Hospital said it had treated and released five patients. One patient had a gunshot wound, while at least three other patients sustained other injuries. The mall is at the center of the town that’s a suburb of both Baltimore and Washington, and it typically opens at 10 a.m. on Saturdays. It was busy with shoppers and employees when the shots rang out before noon.

WASHINGTON – Struggling to generate second-term momentum, President Barack Obama will use Tuesday’s State of the Union address to announce new executive actions on job training and retirement security, while prodding a divided Congress to work harder on expanding economic mobility for middle class Americans. Obama’s b r o a d themes – described by the W h i t e House as opportuniBarack Obama ty, action, and optimism – may find some support among Republicans, who also have picked up the inequality mantle in recent months. But as Congress barrels toward the midterm elections, there’s little indication the president will win over the GOP with his legislative policy prescriptions, including a renewed push to increase the minimum wage and expand access to early childhood education. With its grand traditions and huge prime-time television audience, the State of the Union offers Obama an opportunity to start fresh after a year where his legislative agenda stalled, his signature health care law floundered and his approval rating tumbled. The president has cast 2014 as a “year of action” but has yet to show the public how he’ll ensure that’s more than just an empty promise. Previewing the pres-

ident’s remarks, White House spokesman Jay Carney said, “He’ll certainly aim high. Presidents ought to aim high.” Obama has been tinkering with the speech in his typical fashion, writing out notes long-hand on yellow legal pads and scribbling edits on drafts typed out by his speechwriting team. The White House has heavily promoted the address on social media sites like Instagram, posting photos of Obama working in the Oval Office with lead speechwriter Cody Keenan. Aides are also working on an interactive version of the speech that will run online and feature charts and statistics about the president’s proposals as he’s speaking. While each of Obama’s speeches to Congress has centered on the economy, the challenges have changed as the nation has moved away from the deep recession. Corporate profits and the financial markets have reached record highs, but many Americans are grappling with long-term unemployment and stagnant salaries. Obama has struggled to gain traction on Capitol Hill for many of the economic initiatives he supports, including reinstating unemployment insurance for more than one million Americans who have been out of work for a long period of time. With that in mind, officials say the president’s speech will include announcements on policies he will undertake on his own. While officials would not detail the specific initiatives, they did say they would center on job training and boosting retirement security.

Pope: Expand women’s roles in church By FRANCES D’EMILIO The Associated Press

AP photo

Pope Francis presides over a Vespers ceremony Saturday at Rome’s St. Paul Basilica, at the Vatican.

VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis on Saturday lauded women for their sensitivity toward the society’s weak and “gifts” like intuition, insisting they take on greater responsibilities in the Catholic church, as well as in professional and public spheres. Francis was full of praise about female talent and untapped potential in a speech at the Vatican to an Italian women’s group. But the pope gave no sign that the Vatican glass ceiling against ordaining women for the priesthood might see some cracks during his papacy. From day one of his papacy in March, Francis has been trying to make the Catholic church more welcoming, but it forbids

women from becoming priests, arguing among other things that Jesus and his apostles were men. Francis made clear back in November, in an extensive document laying out his priorities as head of the 1.2-billion-member Catholic church, that the ban against women’s ordination would stand. Then, and in his speech on Saturday, he did go out of his way to urge a greater role for women in making decisions and holding responsibilities in the church. Referring to that document, Francis told his audience that he had stressed “the indispensable contribution of women in society, in particular with their sensitivity and intuition toward the other, the weak and the unprotected.” He said he

has been heartened that “many women share some pastoral responsibilities with priests in looking after persons, families and groups” and he said he had hoped that “the spaces for a more diffuse and incisive presence in the church be expanded.” In some parishes, women visit parishioners too frail to come to church, run prayer groups and outreach programs to the poor, as well as help distribute communion to the faithful at Masses, especially in churches with large congregations. “These new spaces and responsibilities that have been opened, and I strongly hope that they can further be opened up to the presence and activity of women, both in the church environment as well that of the public and profes-

sional” spheres, Francis said, “cannot make us forget the irreplaceable role of the woman in a family.” His audience was made up of Italian women, who live in a country with one of the lowest rates of women in the workplace in the European Union, as many in Italy leave jobs to raise children and never return or never enter the workplace at all. Keeping with the Vatican’s stress on so-called traditional families, Francis said families benefit from women’s “gifts of delicateness, special sensitivity and tenderness.” “The presence of women in a domestic setting turns out to be so necessary” for the “transmission to future generations of solid moral principles and the very transmission of the faith,” Francis said.

Trend-starting Texas drops algebra II mandate By WILL WEISSERT The Associated Press AUSTIN, Texas – Policy pop quiz: Does Texas - algebra II = success? The state that started a trend by making high school students tackle algebra II is now abandoning the policy in a move praised by school districts for affording more flexibility. But some policy experts are nervous because nearly 20 states have followed Texas’ lead in requiring the vigorous course. Supporters say fewer course mandates give students more time to focus on vocational training for high-paying jobs that don’t necessarily require a college degree, such as at Toyota’s factory in San Antonio or oil and chemical giant

Math teacher Tracy Popescu (right) helps high school junior Carter Buono with a problem in an algebra II class Jan. 15 at Flower Mound High School in Flower Mound, Texas. Texas is abandoning advanced-math mandates to give high school students more flexibility to focus on vocational training for jobs that pay top dollar but don’t necessarily require a college degree. BASF’s facilities on the Gulf Coast. But critics say Texas – often watched for education policy – is watering down

its standards. They note that test scores and graduation rates have improved since the tougher curriculum was adopted in 2006.

“Algebra II is a really, really powerful predictive value on whether kids go to college, but it goes on and on after that: more likely to have a full-time job, have a job with benefits, be healthier,” said Patte Barth, director of the Center for Public Education, a policy group affiliated with the National School Boards Association. “It’s not just for the college bound.” Sixteen other states and the District of Columbia now require algebra II for most students, while Minnesota and Connecticut will do so soon. But Texas will join Florida – two of the country’s most populous states – in dropping the requirement when its Board of Education gives final approval to a curriculum overhaul next week.

That’s prompting some education groups to keep close tabs on other states because Texas’ classroom policy can have national implications. The state’s heavy reliance on tougher standardized testing under then-Gov. George W. Bush became the model for the federal No Child Left Behind law. Texas’ textbook market is so large that edits made for its classrooms can affect books sold nationwide. “It’s funny that the banner-turning state would be backing off not so many years later,” said Jennifer Dounay Zinth, a policy analyst at Education Commission of the States. She said her group is watching but hasn’t seen similar moves in other algebra II-requiring states so


far. Legislators overwhelmingly approved the change in May, even though Texas’ higher education commissioner, Raymond Paredes, said removing mandates for advanced math and science would leave more students ill-prepared for college and technical careers. Florida scrapped a similar policy in April. But unlike Texas, Florida is among 45 states embracing national Common Core standards, meaning its students are expected to master some skills taught in algebra II. Texas’ about-face came after strong pressure from Jobs for Texas, a coalition of 22 industry trade groups that argued the state’s curriculum was too rigid and no longer met the needs of the modern workforce.

Option writing recommendations Dear Mr. Berko: Your recent column on options was interesting. And I own all four of the recommended stocks in that column. I have been selling call options for several years on stocks in my retirement portfolio, which has increased my cash flow 1 to 4 percent annually over and above my gains and dividends. I know I could do better, but this takes a lot of time, which I don’t have because my law practice consumes between 50 and 60 hours a week. And I can’t do the necessary research for the same reason. Therefore, this email to you requests the names of some good stocks to sell options on that would have good potential for long-term gain in my portfolio. – TS, Indianapolis Dear TS: I also know enough about the op-

tion market to modestly improve my cash flow. But I could probably more than triple my very modest results if I were more knowledgeable. Strange as it seems, I have neither the energy nor the time to become more knowledgeable. To be successful, I need to develop a skill set that requires years to master. It’s like the difference between performing brain surgery as a newly minted med school graduate and doing so as an experienced neurosurgeon. Although I understand the option concept, I don’t follow this market closely enough to recommend suitable buy-write opportunities, and because I lack a professional’s skills, I’m not comfortable personally selecting specific issues for you. This world is the province of the 10 dozen or so true option giants in

VIEWS Malcom Berko the U.S. These are kooky guys who eat and live in a world of stochastic calculus, Riemann sums and Brownian motion. Most of them have behavioral affectations (tics, twitches, blinks) and unusual speech patterns and perceive the environment differently than we do. These super-geeks have egos as big as the Bronx and don’t talk to commoners like me. Most of these guys are Fields Medal material – an award in mathematics eminently more prestigious than the Nobel Prize. But I do know a commoner (he has a familial relationship to some in this crowd) to whom some of these super-geeks will talk. He is straight as an arrow, speaks clearly and is en-

thusiastically contagious about using options to enhance portfolio returns, and his results are not unimpressive. So I called and asked for recommendations on stocks on which you can sell rich option premiums. Apple Inc. (AAPL-$540) designs, makes and sells iPhones and the like. SolarCity (SCTY-$65) sells, leases and installs energy systems to homes and businesses. InvenSense (INVN-$20) designs and sells microelectromechanical systems for motion tracking devices. Universal Display (OLED$34) engages in research, development and commercialization of organic light-emitting diode technologies. InterDigital (IDCC-$29) designs and develops technologies that enable and enhance wireless communications. 3D Systems (DDD-$95) develops, makes and sells

3-D printers. McDonald’s (MCD-$96) has 35,000 fastfood restaurants in 119 countries. Those seven issues offer attractive 12-month premiums ranging between 10 and 14 percent, and some provide good dividend payments, which will enhance your cash flow on a 12-month buy-write. However, the returns can be mind-bendingly higher if you have the knowledge to put on strips, straps, straddles and strangles. This concept involves the simultaneous purchase and sale of various option contracts on the same stock, sometimes at different prices and sometimes at different times. These annual returns can be dramatically higher (along with a significant increase in volatility and risk) if these transactions are affected in a margin account.

The seven issues above are good candidates for the very simple buy-write strategy. In this scenario, a conservative investor can increase the cash flow on his long-term investment portfolio by an additional 3 to 8 percent in a good market and 2 to 4 percent in a poor market. If you are a trader, the numbers can be much higher in a good market, but the losses can be terribly humbling in a down market. And if you get involved in strips, straps, straddles and strangles (which is where the Fields candidates shine), the gains and losses can be explosive or implosive. But don’t do this without expert advice.

Ban on trans fats would be boon for canola growers By JUSTIN JUOZAPAVICIUS The Associated Press

Heath Sanders, canola field specialist with Great Plains Canola Association, holds a dormant canola plants Dec. 18, 2013 in the field of Jerry Lingo near El Reno, Okla. Over the past two decades, canola has joined the rotation in the Great Plains and beyond, with 1.7 million acres planted from Oregon to the Carolinas.

TULSA, Okla. – From Oregon to Oklahoma, farmers have started planting canola in earnest, rotating the yellow-flowered crop that could blossom into a replacement for artery-clogging trans fats found in myriad junk foods, such as cookies, cakes and pies. The amount of canola being grown in the U.S. has increased dramatically in the past two decades or so, with 1.7 million acres planted in 2012. Some of it

is growing in areas such as Oklahoma, which for generations has been dominated by wheat and cattle operations. As Oklahoma grower Jeff Scott joked, before canola gained popularity, a farmer’s idea of crop rotation here was taking an 800-pound steer off a pasture and replacing it with a 500-pounder. Canola seeds produce oil with less saturated fat than many cooking oils and got a boost last fall when the Food and Drug Administration announced it was

changing its view on trans fats. The FDA issued a preliminary decision that trans fat, also called partially hydrogenated oils, would no longer be listed as “generally recognized as safe” and began taking comment from the food industry on a timeline for eliminating their use. Increased use of canola has led to strong prices that can top other crops. For example, canola now brings farmers about $10 a bushel, compared to about $6 to $7 for wheat. A well-run canola oper-

ation could harvest up to 40 bushels an acre. “I’ve been on the ground floor of working with winter canola, and whenever you try something new, you’re going to have a lot of challenges, but I tell you what, in the last few years, the winter canola ... [has been] a game changer for farmers – I’m seeing it out in the field,” said Heath Sanders, a canola field specialist near Lawton, Okla., who’s been rotating winter canola with his other crops for the past seven years on the family farm.

NSA reform falls short The Obama administration task force that reviewed the unbridled surveillance activities of the National Security Agency recommended new policies that might make us feel a little better about how much the government is watching us, but overshadow a larger issue: the presumption the government never would abuse the information it collects. Unfortunately, history suggests otherwise. Few remember an operation called COINTELPRO, a domestic intelligence program operated by the FBI of J. Edgar Hoover from 1956 to 1971. The purpose of the Counter Intelligence Program was to root out alleged communists in America, through surveillance and indeed infiltration of domestic groups that included Vietnam protesters, church groups and peace activists such as Martin Luther King Jr. Eventually, the Senate authorized a committee led by Sen. Frank Church of Idaho to investigate the program. The committee’s conclusions were damning. “Our investigation has established that the targets of intelligence activity have ranged far beyond persons who could properly be characterized as enemies of freedom and have extended to a wide array of citizens engaging in lawful activity.” Some would say the modern-day IRS probe of Tea Party-related groups for auditing was no different than COINTELPRO. So although the surveillance task force recommended needed changes such as the halting of massive and all-encompassing data collection on all Americans’ phone records, and a more focused collection, the change only has impact if we can trust those in charge of it to obey the rules. And although Obama has said he has authorized by executive order a kind of whistle-blower protection that would allow intelligence workers to raise issues with the collection and use of data, we suspect very few people in this line of work have incentives to be whistle-blowers, given the recent experience of Edward Snowden. There is no doubt that we have to balance the need to gather information to stop terrorists against the need for our citizens’ rights to privacy – to be left alone. But the issue goes beyond that. Information is power, and too much power of information in the hands of the government could strike at democratic institutions themselves and our democracy as a whole, as history has shown.

Making the case for free trade By COKIE ROBERTS AND STEVEN V. ROBERTS President Barack Obama intends to make free trade a major goal this year, and few policies would do more to stimulate growth and create jobs at a time when too many Americans still are struggling to find work and support their families. But the president must show much more passion and persistence on this issue than he’s demonstrated so far. In particular, he has to stand up to the labor unions and liberal interest groups that continue to mount a wrong-headed, backward-looking opposition to expanding foreign commerce. He can start by making trade a major theme of his State of the Union speech next week. Rep. Aaron Schock, of Illinois, a key Republican on trade policy, rightly told Bloomberg, “We need the president

to come out and say he wants this. We need leadership from him.” The immediate issue is a bipartisan bill introduced this month that would renew Trade Promotion Authority, commonly known as “fast track.” Under this process, Congress would be able to vote up or down on trade pacts but not offer amendments or change provisions. Fast track authority expired in 2007, and reviving it now is absolutely essential. The administration is deeply involved in trade talks with 11 other Pacific Rim nations, and an even larger deal looms with Europe. These are highly complex negotiations, involving politically risky and finely balanced compromises, and no trading partner will sign such a pact if Congress can veto pieces of the package. “The last thing we want are 435 members of the House and 100 senators trying to negotiate separately a

trade deal,” Rep. Charles Boustany, a Louisiana Republican, told Voice of America. Passing fast track will not be easy, however. Republicans have suffered from extremists pulling their party to the right on issues such as immigration, but the Democrats have their own hardliners on the left, and no issue gets them more riled up than free trade. A typical criticism came from Rep. Alan Grayson, a Florida Democrat, who told the Huffington Post, “We’ve tried free trade, and not only has free trade not improved the U.S. economy, it’s gutted manufacturing and driven down our labor standards.” Liberal ideologues such as Grayson are flat-out wrong. As the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative points out, “Trade is critical to America’s prosperity.”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Time to pass baton Editor’s note: This is the letter of resignation that Garrett Peck submitted to the Plainfield Township Park District board. He also submitted it to The Herald-News as a letter to the editor. It is being run as submitted: Dear Board of Commissioners, Over the past month, I have been considering the future of the Park District and my presence as the executive director. I took this position in a controversial manner, which made it extremely difficult to function with the entire board and the community. I had a lot of great ideas that will not be able to move forward as a result. Some examples that have been accomplished are a huge savings on health insurance for employees, a shuttle bus with a wheelchair lift, plans for an indoor soccer facility, a new veteran’s program, and potential for over $1.5 million in additional revenue to expand services without raising taxes via billboards and cellphone tower leases.

U.S. exported goods, services worth nearly $2.2 trillion in 2012 • ROBERTS Continued from page 32 In 2012, according to government statistics, the U.S. exported goods and services worth nearly $2.2 trillion. Trade supported

almost 10 million jobs, and those jobs pay between 13 and 18 percent more than the national average. Moreover, every family benefits when foreign sources provide low-cost products from toys to towels.

Here’s the problem. While the nation as a whole benefits enormously from trade, individual industries, regions and unions can suffer from foreign competition. There are losers as well as winners. And the politicians and organi-

zations that represent those losers will always oppose expanded trade, often ferociously.

Segatto, Minooka win sectional Indians senior averages 250.5, joins freshman Devine in ‘300’ club By DICK GOSS ORLAND PARK – Zach Segatto has struggled this bowling season. He had a feeling, however, that something good would happen in Saturday’s Andrew Sectional at Orland Lanes. “I was saving it for the sectional,” the Minooka senior smiled after accepting one bear hug after another from teammates, family and other supporters. Segatto rolled a 300 in a first game where the Indians rolled a whopping 1,221, a 244.2 average a man. Minooka freshman Kai Devin followed with a 300 in Game 3, and although the Indians trailed Lockport much of the day, they shot 1,057 in Game 6 to overtake the Porters and claim their first sectional title. Minooka finished with a 6,510 total to Lockport’s 6,461. They advance to next weekend’s state tournament at St. Clair Bowl in O’Fallon along with the third through sixth finishers – Morgan Park (6,331), Oswego (6,286), Andrew (6,270) and Bolingbrook 6,240. Romeoville settled for eighth


Craig Lincoln for Shaw Media

Minooka senior Zach Segatto makes a strike Saturday at the IHSA Andrew Sectional in Orland Park. at 6,131 after winning the Southwest Prairie title and last week’s Sandburg Regional. Plainfield North was 13th in the 16-team field with 5,728.

Seven individuals not on advancing teams also qualified for state. They included Lincoln-Way West senior Joshuan Glover, third overall at 1,377,

and Romeoville senior Dakota Vostry, fourth at 1,372. Segatto won the sectional championship as a junior, when he averaged 219 for the season.

He entered Saturday with a 207 average but rolled 1,503, a 250.5 average, to claim the title by 100 pins over runnerup Russell Deer of Bremen. His 300 game was Minooka’s first of the season. “When you start the day with a 300, you feel a lot better,” Segatto said. “The past month or two, I’ve been throwing the ball well. After we won the regional last week, I felt good coming in here.” Minooka junior Chris Dombrowski, who entered Saturday not expecting to bowl all six games, started with 259 and wound up fifth individually at 1,360. After finishing the morning round with his 300, Devine closed at 1,341 for ninth overall. John Kauffman chipped in with a 1,246 total as the Indians averaged 217 per man, per game overall. “Zach’s 300 really helped the team get going,” Devine said. “I had a 299 in practice but never got close in competition. When I got to the last ball, I was nervous but I told myself to focus and I buried it.”

Bolingbrook dictates pace, beats Lockport Raiders extend conference lead to two games By DICK GOSS LOCKPORT – Lockport’s plan was to play Friday’s game at its pace. Bolingbrook did a better job dictating tempo, however, and ran away with a key 61-35 SouthWest Suburban Blue victory Friday night over the Porters, extending its conference lead to two games. Lockport (10-8, 4-2) made only 4-of-25 shots in the first, which ended on a 13-0 Bolingbrook run that gave the Raiders (13-3, 6-0) a 25-10 halftime lead. The Porters did not score in the final 6:08 of the first half. “Bolingbrook did a better job than us playing at a proper pace,” Lockport coach Lawrence Thompson Jr. said. “They are an uptempo team, but they were patient in the halfcourt when they needed to be. “We couldn’t let them score in transition and off

We still have a way to go in the patience department.” The combination of the big lead Bolingbrook established early and the severe foul trouble of

Lockport’s leading scorer, Grover Anderson, erased any doubt about the outcome. The Porters beat the Raiders twice last season, when Bolingbrook finished 21-7, but not this time.

Anderson led Lockport with 16 points, but all came in the second half – 11 in the fourth quarter – when he nailed three of his four 3-pointers. He picked up three fouls in the first half and played much of the second half

with four. He fouled out with 2:23 left. “We executed our game plan almost to a T,” Bolingbrook coach Rob Brost said. “We knew they would start in the 13 (1-3-1 defense) and we scored off it immediately. They got right out of it, and we executed our game plan from there.” Prentiss Nixon scored 16 points, Gage Davis 10 and Josh Dillingham eight to go with 12 rebounds for the Raiders, who owned a 39-21 rebounding advantage. Dillingham is listed at 6-foot-4 but is smaller than three other mainstays on the Raiders’ front line. “Josh is one of the most underrated players in the state,” Brost said. “Other guys get the pub, but he’s our glue defensively and on the glass.” “Josh rebounds. He’s undersized at forward but gets the job done down low,” Nixon said. Dillingham, who felt he had one of his best games, said the Raiders owed Lockport after the Porters swept the conference series last year. “We had three special plays to get the ball inside and all of them worked,”

Team leaders Bolingbrook: Prentiss Nixon 16 points, Gage Davis 10 points, Josh Dillingham eight points and 12 rebounds. Lockport: Grover Anderson 16 points, John Campbell eight points, eight rebounds. he said. “We knew we had to bet them on the boards, too. Those are strengths, rebounding and getting it inside.” Bolingbrook opened the game on a 7-0 run and appeared ready for an early blowout. The Porters battled back to within 1210 when John Campbell hit a 3-pointer with 6:08 left in the second quarter. But Lockport’s offense was not heard from again until the third quarter. “I applaud our kids’ effort,” Thompson said. “Even when they were on that run in the second quarter, our guys played hard. Some of our problem there was our shot selection, and some of it was their defense. “When a team that has that kind of talent plays together, and you’re not playing with patience, this is what happens.”

Seneca continues dominance in win over Plano By ROB OESTERLE Shaw Media Correspondent COAL CITY – A coach always is looking for ways his or her team can improve. Seneca boys basketball coach Russ Witte is no exception. Even though his Fighting Irish entered Saturday night’s game in the Interstate Eight Conference tournament with a 14-3 record and top seed, Witte knew his team could be better. After Saturday night’s 57-37 dismantling of Plano, however, he might have to look harder for flaws. The Fighting Irish were strong from the start, both on offense and

defense. The offense was customary. The defense, not so much. “We have been waiting for that,” Witte said. “By that, I mean the defensive intensity. Our offense has been solid all year, but we have struggled to stop people. These kids want to get out and score, but sometimes they forget what Seneca basketball is all about. “Tonight, we brought the defensive intensity, and that was real nice to see.” The Irish forced eight turnovers in the first quarter, overcoming an early 4-0 deficit to take an 18-9 lead after one quarter, and never looked back. Conlan Callahan and Car-

“We have been waiting for that. By that, I mean the defensive intensity. Our offense has been solid all year, but we have struggled to stop people. These kids want to get out and score, but sometimes they forget what Seneca basketball is all about.” Russ Witte, Seneca boys basketball coach ter Gallick each hit a pair of 3-pointers in the opening eight minutes for the Irish as they worked their offense to near perfection. Gallick stayed hot all game, leading all scorers with 20 points, while Callahan scored 12. Alex Bott finished with 10 points.

“I have been shooting well lately,” Gallick said. “My teammates have been finding me when I have been open and I have been making my shots. We knew Plano was a tough team, so we had to play with a lot of intensity.” Gallick was 6 for 10 from 3-point range.


Coal City’s defense too much for Peotone By ROB OESTERLE Shaw Media Correspondent COAL CITY – Playing on the home court is always an advantage to a basketball team. But when you are in a tournament that’s been delayed by weather, that edge increases exponentially. Coal City’s boys basketball team was a perfect example of that Saturday night in a 53-39 Interestate Eight Conference t o u r n am e n t w i n o v e r Peotone. With Friday’s action called off because of inclement weather, Peotone had to play Saturday morning, defeating Wilmington 52-31. Coal City ramped up the defensive pressure early, forcing six turnovers in the first quarter

“Nick [Peters] got his points, which he is going to do, and he did a good job on the boards. The only thing with him is that he is such an unselish player.” Brad Boresi Coal City boys basketball coach en route to an 11-3 lead at quarter’s end. Peotone rallied a bit in the second, pulling to within 21-18 late in the first half. Starting point guard Brennen Shetina went to the bench with his third foul with 1:18 to go, but his replacement, Tyler Brewer, hit a pair of free throws

and got a steal that led to Isaiah Washington’s basket at the buzzer, which sent the Coalers into halftime with a 25-18 lead. “That was a huge for us,” Coal City coach Brad Boresi said. “Brennan got a foul that wasn’t very smart at the end of the first half, but our subs were able to come in and give us some momentum going into halftime. “We played pretty good defense overall and got the turnovers when we needed them. Lane Cowherd ran the floor well and was able to get some easy buckets on the fast break.” After finishing the first half with four straight points, the Coalers scored the first eight of the third quarter to take a 33-18 lead.

Peotone closed it to 3728 at the end of the third. The Blue Devils ran out of gas in the fourth as the Coalers outscored them 16-11 the rest of the way. Nick Peters led Coal City with 16 points and 13 rebounds, while Cowherd scored 12 and Shetina added eight. “Nick got his points, which he is going to do, and he did a good job on the boards,” Boresi said. “The only thing with him is that he is such an unselfish player. That’s a good thing, but there are times we need him to be a little more aggressive. “It was nice to play at home, especially since we haven’t played since last Friday. It’s actually nice to know that all of our tournament games are going to be at home.”

“A lot of teams come into games knowing they have to stop Callahan,” Witte said. “But we have a lot more weapons than that. When Carter is shooting like he was tonight, we are awfully hard to beat.” The Irish built a 3320 lead at halftime, and increased it to 48-30 by the end of the third quarter. Fittingly, a Gallick 3-pointer put the lead at 51-30 to start the fourth quarter, and the Irish were able to play keepaway effectively the rest of the way.

2013 Super Bowl Champions!

“All around, this was a very good game for us,” Witte said. “When our bigs get in foul trouble, sometimes we struggle. But tonight, Devin Leo did a good job for us with his motor and Ross McCormick, a sophomore guard, came in and gave us some good minutes. Defensively, we did a good job on (Plano’s Udochkwu) Agomo. He got loose a couple times, but for the most part we did a good job with him.” Seneca takes on Coal City at 5:30 Tuesday in the tourney semifinals.

Lewis holds on for win By ALEX SOULIER

Craig Lincoln for Shaw Media

Lockport coach Jeff Wyatt talks to his team between games Saturday at the IHSA Andrew Sectional in Orland Park.

Lockport up 47 pins going into Game 6 • BOWLING Continued from page 34 “It’s pretty exciting to be going back to state,” Dombrowski said. “This was the first time I bowled all six games and it’s my first placement medal.” Minooka coach Derrick Rapsky said a sectional title “has been a long time coming. There were years I felt we should have won the sectional and came up short. But this is our most

talented team, and from the start, our expectation was to win it.” Youthful Lockport, which won last year’s state championship with eight seniors on the state roster, nearly denied the Indians. The Porters rolled 3,428 to lead the morning series and still were 47 pins up on Minooka heading into Game 6. Lockport sophomore Noah Zwit rolled 1,333 for 10th overall.

would need, but we never had a bad game, either,” Raiders coach Brian Wayne said. “The guys concentrated on making spares and stayed positive. “This new format [adding a regional level for the first time] was good for us. We basically are seeing the same teams as we did before in the sectional, but six advance instead of two. Now we’ll go to state on an even playing field with everyone else.”

ROMEOVILLE – The Lewis University men’s basketball prevailed over Bellarmine on Saturday in a matchup of two top-20 Division II men’s basketball teams. Bellarmine – the seventh ranked team in the nation, according to the coaches poll – visited a packed Neil Carey Arena to take on No. 19 Lewis. After a building a 29-point lead in the second half, the Flyers withstood a late charge from the Knights, earning a 76-68 victory over their Great Lakes Valley Conference foe. “It was a good win against a very good team,” Lewis coach Scott Trost said. “We were able to start fast, build a big lead, then hold on for the win in the second.” Lewis began the game with the early hot-hand from behind the arc, going 3 for 6 from 3-point territory – including a pair from guard Nick Vella on backto-back possessions. On the other end of the court, a suffocating Flyers’ man-to-man defense held Bellarmine to without a field goals through

nine minutes as Lewis opened up a 22-2 lead. The Knights could not find their touch and shot 22.2 percent from the field in the first half. Capel Henshaw drained a 3 with less than a minute remaining to push the Lewis lead to 23 points, and the Flyers took a 39-18 lead into halftime. Lewis guard Ryan Jackson, who finished with a game-high 23 points, said it is was necessary to get off to a quick start after the Thursday win over Southern Indiana. “We were playing with a lot of aggression and confidence following the victory over Southern Indiana,” Jackson said. “They had dropped two in a row coming into this game, so we knew that we wanted to jump on them early.” Bellarmine slowly chipped away at the lead after Lewis went up 27 in the opening moments of the second half. The Knights mounted an 8-0 run with less 10 minutes remaining to cut the deficit to 10 points. Then, a steal and a layup by Corbin Maynard brought Bellarmine within eight points.

Lewis extends home winning streak to 20 games By ALEX SOULIER ROMEOVILLE – The Lewis University women’s basketball team are proven road warriors, but the Flyers are virtually unbeatable at home. Lewis – the 23rd ranked Division II women’s team in the nation, according to the most recent coaches poll – extended its home winning streak to 20 games Saturday with a 90-82 victory over Bellarmine. The Flyers have not lost at Neil Carey Arena since the first game of last season. Saturday marked the team’s second game back home after a five-game road trip and both coach Lisa Carlsen and the players agree, it feels good to be

back in their friendly confines. “I think that we play with a lot more confidence in our own building,” Carlsen said. “Sometimes it’s tough to build confidence on the road, it’s tough to shoot and it just feels like the ball doesn’t go in as easily.” “We just love playing in front of our home crowd, our fans and our family,” Lewis guard Jamie Johnson said. “We take a lot of pride in protecting Neil Carey Arena. This is our home.” Lewis (14-3, 8-1) came out of the gate firing on all cylinders, quickly scoring game’s first four points in transition and jumping out to a 9-2 lead over its Great Lakes Valley Conference

“I think that we play with a lot more conidence in our own building. Sometimes it’s tough to build conidence on the road, it’s tough to shoot and it just feels like the ball doesn’t go in as easily.” Lisa Carlson, Lewis women’s basketball coach foe. But Bellarmine battled back as both teams had their way from the field in the early going. The Flyers made eight of their first 10 shots, while Bellarmine sunk seven of its first 10 attempts from the floor. With the game tied at 25 with just less than 10 minutes remaining in the first half, Bellarmine grabbed it’s first lead on the threepoint play by Mariah

Gador. The Knights then surged to a 53-44 halftime lead behind 18 first-half points from forward Sarah Galvin. The Flyers continually fell victim to the Bellarmine full-court press, turning the ball over 13 times in first half and allowing 15 points off turnovers. “We haven’t seen anybody that presses as consistently as Bellermine,” Carlsen said. “We figured

they would pressure us and try to take us out of our rhythm, but it’s hard to simulate that in practice. As the game wore on, I think we got in a groove and were effectively run our offense.” But Lewis emerged from the locker room a different team. A 10-3 Lewis run to start the second half pulled the Flyers within two points and forced Bellarmine to burn a timeout. Out of the break, Jamie Johnson hit a 15-foot floater to tie the game at 56. A pair of Lauren Mead free throws gave the Flyers took the lead on the ensuing possession. After a back and forth battle featuring 10 lead changes in 40 minutes, the Flyers seized control thanks to a strong inside

out presence provided by Johnson and fordward Jess Reinhart, who combined for 50 points. Johnson led the Flyers with 26 points while Reinhart notched a double-double – 24 points and 10 rebounds. A three-point play from Johnson with 52 seconds left gave the Flyers and 85-80 lead and put the game out of reach. “They are both great competitors and leaders,” Carlsen said. “They have amazing heart and they respond really well when challenged.” The Flyers remain tied with Indianapolis University for first place in the GLVC. The women now have a four-day break before they go on the road to take on Indianapolis.

Offensive line makes quantum leap By HUB ARKUSH As stunning as the play of backup quarterback Josh McCown was and the development in Jay Cutler, by any measure the biggest surprise of the 2013 season in Chicago was the upgrades on the offensive line. In one offseason general manager Phil Emery and coach Marc Trestman plugged in four new starters: Jermon Bushrod, Matt Slauson, Kyle Long and Jordan Mills, and along with returning center Roberto Garza, the Bears went from one of the two or three worst lines in the NFL to a top-10 to 15 unit. The Bears improved from the 27th ranked team in the league in pass protection to fourth, a huge move in Trestman’s offense, but the fact is they also went from 10th in the league running the ball to 16th. The dropoff in the run game is attributable as much or more to the change in schemes and by design as it is to the line’s

blocking. But the Bears did struggle badly in short-yardage run situations. It also is worth noting that the improvement was a lot more scheme than talent upgrades. As individuals, Bushrod, Long and Mills all were average to well-below average, Garza was just above middle of the road and only Slauson consistently was above average. A lot of the improvement also came from the fact that on 27 percent of the offensive snaps, the Bears deployed offensive tackle Eben Britton as a sixth offensive linemen, and Britton actually graded out as well or better than all but Slauson and Garza. The outstanding production is made all the more impressive by the fact that both Long and Mills stepped in as rookies and started every game. It also was a huge boon to this group that all six starters (including Britton) were available for every snap of the season until Mills went down with a foot injury early in

the final game of the season against the Packers.

The big question here is the status of free-agent Garza. In addition to being the second best individual performer in the group, he is a team leader and captain who made all of the line calls. He will turn 35 years old in March, has had knee issues in the past and the Bears are stressed at best by the salary cap. With the re-signing of Slauson immediately after the season, the other four starters are all tied up for three or four more years.

If the Bears are unable to or choose not to re-sign Garza, they will need a new starter at center. Taylor Boggs was the backup last year and dressed for every game, but he never took a snap and is an unknown quantity. Long is an outstanding young man and wonderful prospect who made strides during his rookie year, but who also has a long way to go just to catch up to Slauson. You have to be happy for him being named a replacement in the Pro Bowl, but there are dozens of more deserving guards in the league. The Bears also need to determine how far they can trust Mills. Finding a 16-game starter with your fifth-round draft choice is a coup, but the reality is he was one of the lowest-rated tackles in the league. James Brown continues to be an interesting developmental prospect at guard and tackle so depth on the line other than at center is not a huge concern.

GRADE For the season this unit earned a solid B. Stats can be a little misleading and one of the reasons sacks were down as much as they were again was scheme, and Trestman preaching to his quarterbacks to check down and take a small gain quickly rather than take a sack. The lack of physicality is another issue that keeps it from being considered in the B+ or A ranges.

JW High School student earns perfect ACT score By DENISE M. BARAN–UNLAND

En route to a swim meet, Youjia Wang checked his phone once and then he checked it twice. Youjia had received a 36 on his ACT test, the highest score a student can earn. “I thought, ‘No way,’ and then I told everyone around me and made a Facebook status about it,” Youjia said. His mother, Ying Wang added, “He texted me in bold letters that he got a perfect score. I texted back, ‘OMG.’” The ironic part of this story, said Kevin Carroll, band director at Joliet West High School, is that Youjia took the ACT test this past fall “just for fun,” to prepare himself for the “real test” this spring. “Of course, it counted,” said Carroll, who has known Youjia since the student’s freshman year. According to a letter Youjia received from Jon Whitmore, chief executive officer at the ACT national office, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of all test takers will earn a composite score of 36. For the U.S. high school ACT test-takers in the graduating class of 2013, just 1,162 out of 1.8 million students reached that mark. This is the first time in at least five years that

Joliet West High School student Youjia Wang recently learned he had scored a perfect 36 on his ACT test. a Joliet Township High School District student has received a perfect score on the ACT test, said Kristine Schlismann, director of community relations. Yet Youjia is fairly nonchalant about his achievement. Making high grades has always come easy to him. This is despite participating in swimming competitions through the

Greater Joliet YMCA and Joliet West High School, playing flute in the first chair in the school band and qualifying for the state competition through Illinois Music Education Association All State Music Conference. “I don’t worry about homework or tests the way other people do,” Youjia said. Carroll said that some

people may assume that kids with perfect ACT scores have dry personalities and study constantly. So although certain skills may come with less effort to Youjia, he added, Youjia does work hard and takes nothing for granted. “And he’s very down to earth and has a great sense of humor,” Carroll said. School success appears

to be a family tradition. Ying said she did well in school, too. Julie Wang, Youjia 10-year-old sister, also competes in swimming and flies through her schoolwork. However, a perfect ACT score is not Julie’s top priority. “I want good grades but I want to focus more on swimming,” Julia said. “I want to make it to the Olympics.”

Still, Julie is proud of her big brother. Behind the scenes, Julia has noted his hard work. “He’ll come home from practice and stay up late doing his homework,” Julia said. College plans? Yes, Youjia will attend but he has no firm career goals right now. He prefers math and science more than reading and social studies, although Youjia did enjoy fantasy fiction when he was younger and is now exploring classic literature. In his free time, Youjia watches the humorous and educational John Green videos on YouTube, plays the strategic “Legal Legends” on his computer and participates in Xbox Live with his friends. Although he has been swimming competitively since he was 7, Youjia now prefers the fellowship of the sport to the awards and is unsure if he will continue competing in college. Ying encourages her son to aim high. “I want him to find something that makes his talents useful,” Ying said. “Maybe he can major in medicine and find a cure for cancer.” Youjia is simply excited about the doors that may open for him due to his perfect ACT score and continues to research and visit colleges. “I like to keep my options open,” Youjia said.

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

Christmas competition subsidiary questions make the difference


Now we come to the secondary, tie-breaking questions in my Christmas Competition. 3. Look at only the North hand. a. Partner opens one spade and West passes. What would you respond? Two diamonds. This hand is worth game, so start where you live. Do not respond two clubs. b. Partner opens three clubs and West passes. What would you do? Five clubs. You have no idea how well the opponents can do in a major. Yes, you would like to make a lead-directing diamond bid, but that would give East more room to enter the auction. c. West opens one heart. What would you call? Double. Not ideal without a fourth spade, but you should get into the auction. Pass is close, though. 4. Look at only the West hand. a. Partner opens one heart and South passes. What would you bid? Four hearts. This time, you do not know how well the opponents can do in a minor. Your hand is a “weak freak,” so make them guess. b. Partner opens one spade, South overcalls five diamonds, and everyone passes. What would you lead? The spade king. This is not without risk, but you might need to shift to a red suit at trick two. Second choice, just behind, is a low spade. c. North opens one diamond, East doubles, and South passes. What would you advance? Two hearts. With the double fit in the majors, you are worth the jump.

Text announcing pregnancy causes concern Parents want teen to Dear Abby: My daughter, who recently turned 21, sent me a two-word text message, “I’m pregnant.” She has been dating a marijuana-smoking young man for less than a year, and I’m disappointed by this outcome. Her sister, who is a year older, already has two children by two men. No, they weren’t raised by a harlot. I adopted them when they were early elementary-aged children. It’s not my fault. I’m disgusted by their choices. I haven’t talked with her yet. I won’t try to lecture her or tell her how she should live her life. I feel it would be best to say nothing if I can’t be positive. Suggestions? – Disgusted In The South Dear Disgusted: It would be better if you said nothing to your daughter while you are angry, or you may say something you will regret. It would not be out of line, however, to text her back and ask, “How do you and ‘John’ plan to support the baby?” If you don’t plan to help her in any way, you should let her know NOW. Dear Abby: Our 13-year-old is addicted to her phone. She stays on it

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips for hours, and it’s affecting the time she goes to bed. She’s now starting to oversleep the alarm in the morning before school. She’s spoiled, and I’m afraid that removing or limiting phone privileges will lead to major problems with her protesting it. I don’t want truant officers or social workers coming to my house because my wife and I can’t discipline our kid. How do you handle a spoiled brat without involving outside agencies? She’s nice to people in school, but is lazy at home and totally self-centered. – Frustrated, Exhausted Dad Dear Dad: You and your wife created this “monster,” and now it’s your job to make things right. Of course your daughter won’t like it when you set rules, but you must establish some for her before your lack of parenting causes even more serious problems. Set the rules and stick with them.

If she won’t follow them, there should be penalties for not doing so. Dear Abby: I’m about to be 17 and just started living with my mom after being a runaway for three months. During that time, I made friends with people who were not good for me. However, I still feel I need to cling to these people and be there for them. As I write this, one of the girls I was closest to is in prison and will be there for a long time. I have to pretend to be fine and act as if I don’t care for her, but I do, desperately. My mom refuses to be understanding and talk about anything with me. I don’t know what to do. – Teen In Little Rock Dear Teen: Your mother appears to belong to the ostrich school of parenting. If she doesn’t hear something, it doesn’t exist. Clearly, you DO need to talk with someone about the feelings you’re experiencing and why you feel the need to “cling to these people.” Because your mother can’t/won’t do this, it’s important that you talk to a counselor and ask for help. • Write Dear Abby at

Late-night snackers are more prone to gaining weight Dear Doctor K: Is it true that eating late makes you gain weight? Dear Reader: I’d heard the same thing for decades, but I wasn’t sure it was true. I had to do some research to answer your question. Several recent studies have looked into this question. The results were not unanimous, but most studies show that eating late in the day does contribute to weight gain and other health problems. In one study, researchers found that eating a big breakfast and a small dinner is better for weight loss than eating a small breakfast and a large dinner. Ninety-three women with metabolic syndrome participated in this study. (Metabolic syndrome is a set of risk factors that increases your risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other health problems.) The women were randomly assigned to different diets. Group 1 ate a 700-calorie breakfast, 500-calorie lunch and 200-calorie dinner. In contrast, Group 2 ate a 200-calorie breakfast, 500-calorie lunch and 700-calorie dinner. After 12 weeks, the researchers measured weight loss in both groups.

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff Women in Group 1 lost significantly more weight than women in Group 2. The women in Group 1 also had lower insulin, glucose and lipid levels. This shows that this eating pattern benefits overall health, as well as weight loss. A problem with late-night eating is that most people tend to overeat at that time. We eat out of boredom, or fail to adjust our daytime calories to allow for a nighttime snack. Nighttime snackers are more likely to develop unhealthy eating habits, which can lead to weight gain. Another factor that may come into play is the body’s circadian rhythm, or sleep-wake cycle. One study suggested that our body processes food differently at different times of day. Another recent study, by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, found that the body’s circadian rhythm

makes us hungrier in the evening. I’d bet the main reason that calories late in the day are burned less efficiently has to do with circadian rhythms. We 21st-century humans (the Homo sapiens species) and the Homo erectus and Homo ergaster species that preceded us go back 1-2 million years. Until the last few hundred years, all but the most affluent of us didn’t have much light after the sun went down. That must have meant that we ate during daylight and went to sleep soon after sunset. I assume that over those 1-2 million years our bodies adapted to that reality. Our bodies probably are built to burn energy most efficiently at the time of day – for most of our history – we ate. Whatever the mechanism, eating late at night does appear to contribute to weight gain. If you’re trying to lose weight, put an end to those late-night snacks. • Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. Visit to send questions and get additional information.

teach math over music

Dr. Wallace: I’m in the 12th grade. I love music, and after I graduate, I plan to major in education at the University of Illinois with an emphasis on music because I want to teach high school music and be the marching band director. My only concern is that high schools in some areas of Illinois are freezing teacher’s salaries and have talked about cutting back music and athletic programs. It has been difficult passing school bond initiatives because homeowners don’t want tax increases. My parents want me to major in mathematics. They think it will be much easier to be employed as a math teacher rather than a music teacher. I really want to be in the music field, but I wouldn’t be unhappy teaching mathematics. Since you are a former high school principal, which do you think would be in my best interest? – Nameless, Geneva Dear Nameless: School funding is often touchand-go and fraught with uncertainty because it pits school districts against homeowners who are always, and understandably, wary of tax increases. Sometimes, in order to dramatize the necessity of a funding increase, school districts will confront the community with the possibility of having to eliminate popular programs, such as music and athletics. Occasionally, cuts in these programs really do take place, but usually the school district finds a way to keep them going. My advice would be that you give yourself an extra measure of security. Major in music, with a minor in math at the

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace university. That way, you have the flexibility of dual proficiency. And don’t forget that high schools always have plenty of teachers, but only one band director. This is a highly competitive position. Dr. Wallace: My boyfriend and I have been together for two years. We are both 18 and are in the 12th grade. He is a terrific baseball player, and he thinks that after he graduates, a major league baseball team will offer him a contract to play in the minor leagues in their farm system. I’m also hoping that a team offers him a contract and that he will eventually make the major leagues. But on the other hand, I’m worried that he will be having girls throwing themselves at him. Girls love professional athletes, so it will be easy for him to see hundreds of girls while I sit at home wondering about his off-the-field activities. We have discussed this, but my boyfriend said that he is going to concentrate 100 percent on baseball and that he won’t have time to fool around with girls. How can I cope with this possible problem? – Nameless, Miami, Fla. Dear Nameless: You’re being attacked by the green-eyed monster, otherwise known as jealousy. The only solution is trust. When your boyfriend tells you that he will concentrate on hitting curves, not chasing them, believe him. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@

The late Paul Walker makes one of his final film appearances in a touching performance in “Hours.”

Walker gives touching performance in ‘Hours’ By MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN The Washington Post “Hours” is a small film, and would likely not be getting the modest attention it is were it not for the untimely death of its star, Paul Walker, who was killed in a car crash last November at age 40. Best known for his participation in the “Fast and Furious” action franchise – the seventh installment of which is reportedly being rewritten to accommodate the actor’s death – Walker always has projected a stolid, if less than electrifying, presence. That remains the case in “Hours,” in which he portrays a frantic new father in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. In his quiet, workmanlike way, however, the

performer creates a stirring portrait of paternal devotion. Set in a New Orleans hospital, “Hours” is the story of Nolan Hayes (Walker) and his attempt to keep his newborn daughter alive after he is left alone to tend to her malfunctioning ventilator when the entire staff and all other patients are evacuated. Aside from some brushes with armed looters, a stray dog and a rescue helicopter scared off by snipers, Nolan literally spends most of the film, which spans about two days, cooped up in a hospital room cranking a manual generator to keep his child breathing. In between cranks, he talks to the baby, who can’t breath on her own yet, about her mother (Genesis Rodriguez). Mom, who has died

in childbirth, appears in flashbacks and as a ghostly apparition. Nolan also rushes around the abandoned building looking for medical supplies, growing increasingly desperate as time passes. As it does, Walker’s performance – along with the film – gets more and more engrossing. Sure, the setup is kind of gimmicky. The ventilator’s balky battery will only hold a charge for a few minutes, which means that Nolan must constantly rush back and forth between his infant’s side and whatever mission he’s on: tracking down more saline, flagging down help, trying to fire up the ignition of an ambulance with a flooded engine. The fact that the character also has to provide

a running commentary on the action is also a bit annoying, especially when the similarly themed “All Is Lost” proved that a spoken monologue under emergency circumstances is not just unrealistic, but dramatically unnecessary. Still, the gimmick works, thanks to Walker’s surprising ability to explore – and to reveal – his character’s interior life. Compared to the “Fast and Furious” films, “Hours” is a chamber piece, but Walker wrings real pathos out of his instrument.

• “Hours” received two out of four stars. The film is rated PG-13 and contains brief violence, drug abuse, mild sensuality, some crude language and mature thematic material. It runs 97 minutes.

Family time: How to welcome a new pet into the home to prevent dogs from entering areas of the house that aren’t safe for them, or places you don’t want them to be. Remember, cats can jump extreme distances, so clean off the top of your cabinets and refrigerator in case your kitty decides those are his or her favorite places to play, hide and pounce. • Manage pet hair on your clothing. Many would agree that if they have a “pet peeve” about their four-legged friends, it’s the shedding. Fifty-seven percent of women are hesitant to wear black clothing around cats and dogs because of the lint and pet hair it attracts, according to a Procter & Gamble study conducted in August. However, you don’t

MORE CONTENT NOW Congratulations! You’re a pet owner. Bringing a new pet home is an exciting experience, but it requires some preparation. Prepping your house, wardrobe and routines ahead of time can help ease the transition for both you and your new family member. Here are some tips to welcome a new pet into your household and ensure a smooth transition for everyone. • Pet-proof your home. Just as you would baby-proof a house for an infant, make sure to petproof your house for your furry friend. Rearrange your living space by placing anything breakable at a higher level. Baby gates work well

need to change your wardrobe just to snuggle with your new pet. Use a hair-repelling laundry product to keep hair away. • Prepare for pet odor. A dog or cat will introduce new smells to your house. You can help contain these smells with frequent vacuuming, disinfecting toys regularly and clumping and deodorizing litter. Regularly bathing your dog is an important part of keeping their skin and coats clean and odor-free. Also, brushing your dog or cat’s teeth can help keep his or her mouth healthy and help prevent bad breath. • Help your new pal adjust. Place a cozy bed in several rooms where your pet will be allowed, giving him or her a comfortable place to snuggle and sleep.

Making budget-friendly entertainment spaces REALTY OF JOLIET MORE CONTENT NOW

Each year there is a plethora of sports games, birthday parties and holidays to celebrate with friends and family. Now is the ideal time to create an impressive entertaining space in your home – one that you will be proud to share and truly enjoy throughout the year, whatever the occasion. Just imagine the memories your family will make snuggled on a plush new couch reading stories, or cheering their favorite soccer or football team to victory while watching a new flatscreen TV. Here are easy ways to upgrade your space, and your electronics, without busting your budget. • Freshen furniture. If your current couch and recliners are more shabby than chic, it’s time to upgrade. New, plush furniture can be within your budget with lease-to-own alternatives.

• Accessorize. Whether you just got a new couch or want to update your current furniture, new pillows, throws and blankets are perfect for keeping guests toasty warm no matter how low the temperatures drop. Pillows are great for lounging and, when you’re hosting a large group, can be used on the floor to keep everyone comfy. • Electronic entertainment. Setting the scene for the perfect party is easy when you have the right entertainment prepped beforehand. Start by having some music ready to get everyone in a festive mood from the moment they arrive. • Rethink the arrangement. Cluster seating together to encourage conversation, and face the main pieces of furniture toward a focal point, like the TV. By keeping flow and function in mind as your arrange the area, you’ll better define the space

and maximize its potential use. – Brandpoint


Faucets and cabinet hardware can quickly date a room. Replacing hardware can add beauty to your kitchen without adding a lot of extra cost. Be sure to find knobs and pulls that are the same size as the existing ones so you don’t have to re-drill the cabinets. – Brandpoint

NAPS Home remodel costs are trending in a positive direction for homeowners looking to add value with cost-effective projects. According to a recent study by Remodeling, the average cost-to-value ratio has increased to 60.6 percent. The Remodeling report also said, regarding the national average for midrange home remodeling projects costing less than $12,000 that still recoup at least half of their cost, that: • A steel entry door replacement increases resale value by 85.6 percent of its cost. • A garage door replacement increases resale value by 75.7 percent of its cost.

• A fiberglass entry door replacement increases resale value by 65.9 percent of its cost. • A wooden deck addition increases resale value by 77.3 percent of its cost. • A vinyl window replacement increases resale value by 71.2 percent of its cost. • A wood window replacement increases resale value by 73.3 percent of its cost. • A backup power generator increases resale value by 52.7 percent of its cost. Meanwhile, you and your family can enjoy the comfort and savings that these improvements provide. For example, the backup power generator, also known as a standby or home generator, can offer

your family peace of mind during emergencies and natural disasters. During a power outage, standby generators provide a seamless supply of power using a transfer switch and power management system. This lets you run appliances such as sump pumps, air conditioners, heaters, refrigerators, washers, dryers and lights. “Any time a homeowner can choose a remodeling project that increases the home’s livability while also recouping a large chunk of the project investment it’s a great idea,” said Amanda Grandy of Briggs and Stratton, one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of home standby generators.
