By BRIAN STANLEY YjkXec\p7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd JOLIET â€“ Police have arrested a father and son for allegedly shooting a man on the street Sunday. At 7:26 p.m. Sunday, a 26-year-old man was walking near Williamson and Hacker avenues when a gray minivan pulled up on Williamson, Cmdr. Al Roechner said. â€œA man in the passenger seat fired a handgun at the victim and the van drove away,â€? Roechner said. The victim suffered a gunshot wound to the left side of his groin and was taken to Silver Cross Hospital. His injury is not considered life-threatening. About an hour after the shooting, a patrol officer stopped a gray 2008 Chevrolet Uplander at Draper Avenue
Shaquille O. Jones
Artis J. Ross
and Woodruff Road after noticing the driver and passenger didnâ€™t have seat belts on. â€œWhile waiting for backup the officer noticed the three people in the vehicle kept moving around and seemed to be putting things under the seats,â€? Roechner said. When other officers arrived they questioned the occupants and were allowed to search the Uplander, Roechner said. â€œThey found a loaded, cocked .38-caliber revolver under the seats, a spent shell casing on the floor and a bag with other ammunition,â€? Roechner
said. The owner of the Uplander, a 20-year-old woman, was questioned and released without being charged. Shaquille O. Jones, 20, of the 100 block of Chestnut Street in Buckingham, was arrested on charges of aggravated battery, aggravated discharge of a firearm, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and unauthorized possession of ammunition. Artis J. Ross, 45, of the 300 block of Luana Road, was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, unlawful use of a weapon and physical intimidation. Roechner said records show Ross is Jonesâ€™ father. Both men were booked into the county jail. Roechner said detectives still are working to determine why the men attacked the victim.
Hurtado critic says letter deflected allegations By VIKAAS SHANKER mj_Xeb\i7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd PLAINFIELD â€“ The Plainfield park board president said itâ€™s just a coincidence that his former company had the same phone number as a business that sold lights to the park district. Board President Peter Hurtado gave interviews Monday as he tried to turn attention away from a growing controversy about possible business dealings with the park district and toward his plans for village parks. Hurtado has come under fire largely because of accusations that he may have attempted to profit from the sale of LED lights to the park district. He said allegations made against him are false, but declined to specifically address questions raised by the LED light deal. The company that made the sale, Josue Solis & Associates, listed a phone number on one of its invoices that was the same as one once used by Mastercraft Metal Spinning Inc., which was owned by Hurtado. â€œThat company dissolved three years ago,â€? Hurtado said of Mastercraft. â€œThere is no connection.â€? Hurtado said that the phone number was disconnected from his company years ago.
â€œNothing stopping anyone else from picking up that number,â€? he said. Hurtado also said he had a company that worked with industrial lighting called Light One Inc., but that company is closed and has never worked with LED lights. On Jan. 29, Vice President Janet Silosky publicly implicated Hurtado in a scheme to sell LED lights to the park district through a company called Josue Solis & Associates. Silosky said the name of the company matched the name of Hurtadoâ€™s daughterâ€™s boyfriend. Hurtado denied the allegations at the time, and said he canâ€™t comment on the situation because of pending litigation. But he sent a letter to the editor Friday to The Herald-News that alleged he was being attacked based on the way he talks and the color of his skin. â€œThe reason I sent the release was this is way out of hand,â€? Hurtado said, adding that some of his critics made racial statements to him after a Feb. 4 board meeting. â€œI felt it was very inappropriate and it needed to be addressed.â€? Hurtado stated in the letter that a Plainfield village trustee publicly mocked the way he talked. While he declined to name of the trustee or expand
on the comment, Hurtado said it occurred during the July 24 board meeting of the park district. The village trustees in attendance at that meeting were Garrett Peck, who was the interim executive director of the park district, Jim Racich, who has been an outspoken critic of Hurtado, and Bill Lamb, who talked about an intergovernmental project with the village. Racich spoke during public comment, but itâ€™s unclear what comment Hurtado is referring to. Racich said Hurtadoâ€™s letter was just about deflecting the allegations. â€œI have absolutely no idea what he is talking about,â€? Racich said, denying Hurtadoâ€™s accusation and calling for his resignation. â€œItâ€™s an insult that anyone would throw out the race card. He didnâ€™t specifically name me, but we damn well know who he is talking about.â€? Peck declined to comment on park district issues.
Hurtado also stated in his letter that the previous board of commissioners, when he was a minority vote, didnâ€™t act on questions he had about no-bid contracts, harassment of employees and lease agreements.

Struggling Catholic day care center reaches out to community By LAUREN LEONE–CROSS firstname.lastname@example.org JOLIET – Sonia Jaime-Ulloa of Joliet opened a letter from the Vilaseca Day Care Center last week, expecting to find a re-registration form so she can sign her 4-year-old son, Orivel, up for next year. Instead, the letter confirmed rumors the 32-yearold mother had been hearing over the past few months: That the struggling bilingual Catholic day care center and preschool at 351 N. Chicago St. could very well close by the end of March. “I got my pen out ready to sign my son up for next year, but then I opened it and started reading it,” Jaime-Ulloa said Monday. “I told my husband this was not the letter I was expecting. We were both in shock.” School officials announced last week that the day care center, which first opened in Joliet in 1974, could shut down two months shy of the end of the school year, citing a decline in enrollment. The facility, which relies heavily on tuition revenue, has enrolled about 80 children each year since the Josephine Sisters of Mexico City moved the center to its current location in 1981. But this month, that number is down to 49, said Sister Araceli Perez, the center’s longtime director. “At the beginning of the school year [in August], we started with 64, but then some don’t come back. We lose a few each month. This month, two parents lost their jobs,” Perez said. “We have four children in the 3-yearold’s class. We started out at the start of the school year with 11.” School officials are calling on the community in hopes of

Our goal is to get the children.” Perez said the facility needs about $60,000 to stay

tuition revenue, but also receives some funding through the United Way of Will County, and its food program is sponsored by the Illinois Board of Education. “We’re in the red every day. If someone comes in to pay their tuition, then we’re in the black,” Flores said. “We’re living day-by-day.”

Little Theater demolition nears completion Joliet Central plans new student center By FELIX SARVER ]jXim\i7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd JOLIET – Construction workers still are making space for a student center that Joliet Central High School Principal John Randich says will give students a “21st century learning environment.” Demolition of Little Theater on Herkimer Street, which will be the site of the new center, began the week of Jan. 27 and is anticipated to be completed by the end of the week, Joliet Township High School District 204 school officials said. The demolition of the Little Theater and planned construction of the student center comes after school officials saw a need for expanded space at Joliet Central High School, which includes “flexible space for student and community use.” The student center will give students collaboration spaces and services that will provide a “21st century learning environment,” such as table counters with nearby outlets where they can do work on electronic devices while eating lunch. “It’s just expanding the opportunity for the kids,” said Brian Shaw, Joliet Central High School assistant principal, about the student center. The student center also will house the school cafeteria, expanding seating from 350 now to roughly 500, Randich said. It will keep all cafeteria food ser-
vices and kitchen equipment on the same floor instead of several, he said. The $28 million construction project, which will be funded through bonds, is beginning the second of a threephase project slated to end sometime in spring 2016. The architect of the project is Tom Roth of Wight and Co. Demolition of Little Theater took place after the Infant Childcare Center at the building was relocated to Collins Street. The Little Theater building is a former church that was converted into an auditorium. School officials called the demolition of Little Theater a “fiscally responsible decision” and said renovation was not an option because of costs associated with upgrading the facility to meet educational needs. Members of the community could use the space for events, meetings and presentations. “Once the community sees our facility, they might have uses for it that we haven’t even thought of yet,” Randich said. A galleria is expected to be attached to the east side of the school to connect the student center to the main campus, school officials said. The galleria will be designed to be like the atrium that currently joins the Field House to the gym on the north side of the school. School officials say they plan on preserving the historical integrity of the 112-yearold high school building. Joliet Central High School Archive Committee members have been providing feedback to the construction planning team to make sure the plan mirrors the school’s historical nature, they said.

Van stopped, cocaine found Cellphone taken at gunpoint By BRIAN STANLEY
JOLIET – Police allegedly found a van loaded with 50 kilos of cocaine Wednesday. Will County Sheriff’s deputies were on patrol about 8:20 p.m. when they saw a white van turn without signaling at
Jefferson Street and Raynor Avenue, spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said. Enrique Lazarit, 33, of the 800 block of Cochrane Avenue, admitted he did not have a driver’s license and was placed under arrest, Hoffmeyer said. “The deputies conducted
an inventory search before it was towed and found a suitcase and boxes containing wrapped packages that tested [as] cocaine,” Hoffmeyer said. Lazarit was arrested on charges of drug trafficking and driving without a license. He is being held in the county jail on $1 million bond.
Snowplow tips over
By BRIAN STANLEY YjkXec\p7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd JOLIET – A man told police two men in a car took his cellphone at gunpoint Sunday. At 8:42 p.m. the victim was walking near Hutchins and Vine streets when a blue Saturn sedan with a cracked rear passenger window pulled alongside, Cmdr. Al Roechner said. “The man in the passenger seat pointed a gun at the victim and told him to get in the car or he’d shoot him,” Roechner said. “The victim got in and noticed
the driver was also carrying a gun.” The passenger took the man’s cellphone before ordering him to get out of the Saturn and walk away without looking back, Roechner said. The victim went home and called police. The gunman was described as a black man in his 20s with dreadlocks. He was wearing a puffy black coat. The driver also was described as a black man in his 20s. He was wearing a black coat and gray hoodie. Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 815-724-3020.

Day care center has 16 employees, 4 nuns on staff M@C8J<:8
:fek`el\ifdgX^\* The center, which gives lessons in both English and Spanish, has five programs or classes for children from 15 months to kindergarten, along with about 16 employees and four nuns on staff. The nuns began the program in 1974, operating from a house on Herkimer Street before moving into the former KSKJ building. Jaime-Ulloa, who attended the day care center as a child, hopes the community
can pull together to help the center through this difficult time. “My father helped them moved here [to 351 N. Chicago St.] It was nice back then how the community came together to help the center,” she said. “It would be so great if the community could come together again, financially, and help the center stay open through the end of the school year, and hopefully, I’m crossing my fingers, long enough to create a longterm plan so they can stay open for many, many more years.”
Hurtado says he will limit executive director’s power ?LIK8;F
:fek`el\ifdgX^\) Specifically, Hurtado mentioned a contractor that owed $130,000 to the park district in penalties, but ended up only paying $3,500. “I asked the board about audio records of meetings so we can have record of who said what,” Hurtado said. “My comments about that contractor were being censured in the minutes.” Hurtado said that he believed that the park district needed to be more transparent about its business.
Hurtado said he plans to move forward by limiting the power of the executive director. Hurtado endorsed the hiring of Peck days after the new board took shape in May. Ever since then, a number of Peck’s decisions have been questioned by the public, including contracts that seem shaped to avoid board approval. “Everyone likes to [request] contracts from the past months, but this was a problem for a long time,” Hurtado said. “If you take away all the distractions, I think Peck did a good job. I think if he was here three or four months more, he was going to bring in more revenue for years to come.” But Hurtado maintained that controversy surround-
ing Peck was an example that the executive director has too much power, including hiring and firing employees, and contracting out bids without board approval. Hurtado also said that at the next board meeting he will advocate for a new soccer program that will cost less than the one now being run by the Plainfield Soccer Association. “I’ve complained about the Plainfield Soccer Association having too high of rates,” Hurtado said. “I played soccer. My children played soccer. It should be accessible to all the people. Not just the rich.” The PSA currently charges $120 a child. The park district’s program, already advertised, will charge from $40 to $70 in the first year based on the age. Rob Ayres, a critic of the park district board majority including Hurtado, is currently the executive board president of the PSA. “We told the park district that we could get our fee down if they waived some of the requirements and fees for our program,” Ayres said about a meeting in January 2013. “But the discussion completely stopped after that.” Ayres said the PSA currently employs two staff members on a payroll of less than $60,000 per year. Coaches, who were previously employed by the PSA, are a part of the Chicago Fire Juniors.
Sonia Jaime-Ulloa (center) explains how she felt after learning the Vilaseca Day Care Center in Joliet may close in March. Jaime-Ulloa currently has a 4-year-old enrolled at the day care. Vilaseca is run by the Josephine Sisters of Mexico City and may close after 40 years because of low enrollment.

NIU plans moment of reflection for Friday By DEBBIE BEHRENDS [Y\_i\e[j7j_Xnd\[`X%Zfd DEKALB – Northern Illinois University will remember the lives of five students who died Feb. 14, 2008, with a moment of reflection and the tolling of five bells at 3:06 p.m. Friday. Although most of today’s students were not on campus the day the five – Gayle Dubowski, Catalina Garcia, Julianna Gehant, Ryanne Mace and Daniel Parmenter – were killed by a gunman in Cole Hall, NIU maintains a commitment to remember them every year, spokesman Paul Palian said. The sixth annual remembrance will be more subdued than last year, when friends and families of the deceased laid wreaths and flowers next to five marble slabs dedicated to each of the fallen. A memorial garden, adjacent to Cole Hall, is intended to be a place of peaceful reflection. It consists of a gently-curving walk set in a group of trees with a red granite reflection wall bearing the students’ names and a sculpture centerpiece. Benches are placed opposite the wall to encourage all to pause and
remember, Palian said. “NIU is committed to remembering and honoring the spirit of the cherished Huskies lost that day,” said NIU President Doug Baker, who is spending time with their families before the anniversary. “The bells serve as a reminder of the ‘Forward, Together Forward’ spirit of our students and community as we reflect and honor those lost.” Kelly Wesener Michael, associate vice president for student affairs and dean of students, said it was a natural transition for the campus’ remembrance of the tragedy. “A moment of reflection is a way in which NIU can continue its tradition of marking an unforgettable moment in its history, remembering the resiliency of our community and, most importantly, honoring those we lost,” Michael said. The NIU Scholarship Office also plans to announce the winners of the Forward, Together, Forward Scholarship Friday. The Forward, Together Forward Scholarship Endowment was created through the generosity of more than 1,770 donors to honor the memory and spirit of Dubowski, Garcia, Gehant, Mace and Parmenter.
Trucking group cites danger in new 70 mph speed limit THE HERALD NEWS A trucking group wants the new 70 mph speed limit lowered for cars in areas, including parts of Will County, where it says the difference in speeds between automobiles and trucks is dangerous. The Illinois Trucking Association wants the reduction on highways where there is a 15 mph differential between speed limits for cars and trucks, so that areas where trucks are limited to 55 mph cars would be limited to 65 mph. Under the new law that went into effect Jan. 1, car and truck speed limits were increased to 70 mph on most Illinois inter-
states. However, trucks still are limited to slower speeds in some collar county areas. On Interstate 55, for example, the speed limit for both cars and trucks is 70 mph south of the Will County line. North of the county line, the truck speed limit decreases to 55 mph while car speed limits remain at 70 mph. The 15 mph differential continues until just south of Elwood, where the car speed limit is reduced to 65 mph. The association cites bridge construction over the Des Plaines River along this stretch as a further concern, and notes that other locations in Will and Kane counties have the same 15 mph differential.

January 1, 1918-February 11, 2013 Dad, it's hard to believe it's a year since you've gone, for your presence is still felt by us daily. Always loved and in our hearts. Your children, Emily, Jesse, Pat, Mike, Vickie, and Dennis.
COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Gabriel Axel, the first Dane to win an Oscar for best foreign film with “Babette’s Feast” which he directed, has died at the age of 95. His daughter Karin Moerch said in a statement that he died Sunday “quietly and peacefully after a long and eventful life.” She did not say where he died or give the cause of death. Born April 18, 1918, in Denmark’s second city Aarhus, Axel divided his time between his homeland and
France. He grew up in Paris where his father owned a factory and at age 18 he returned to Denmark to work as a carpenter making furniture. But the theater drew him, and he enrolled in the Danish Royal Theater Actors’ School, graduating in 1945. Axel was born Gabriel Axel Moerch but he dropped his last name when he joined the theater troupe of French film and stage artist Louis Jouvet in Paris. Axel directed several large projects for French television, then returned to Denmark to produce series for Denmark’s public broadcaster and direct several films in the 1950s and 1960s. He also acted in films. His international breakthrough came in 1987 with
s with o t o h p r u o y e r a Sh Will County!
“Babette’s Feast,” based on a novel by Danish writer Karen Blixen. The movie is about a 19th century Parisian woman, played by French actress Stephan Audran, who finds shelter in a remote, puritanical Danish village, living with two sisters who maintain a strict religious philosophy. Axel’s works include “Prince of Jutland,” a 1994 film that tells the story of Amled, the Danish prince whose life inspired Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” In 2003, he received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Copenhagen International Film Festival. Axel’s wife of nearly 50 years, Lucie Axel Moerch, died in 1996. He is survived by their four children and eight grandchildren.

and organize parades and petition drives while he was working for the state. Rutherford s c h e d u l e d a Dan n e w s c o n f e r - Rutherford ence for late Monday afternoon to address the lawsuit. The allegations come just weeks before the four-way GOP primary, and political analysts say they could severely damage Rutherfordâ€™s chances, particularly among the socially conservative voters who typically turn out to choose the Republican nominee. One political analyst called the claims â€œtoxic.â€? Rutherford has denied any wrongdoing and held an unusual, hastily arranged news conference Jan. 31 to announce that an unnamed
employee had raised â€œallegations of misconductâ€? against him. Initially, Rutherford said he couldnâ€™t detail the allegations because they were a personnel matter, but he later confirmed they involved harassment and political coercion. â€œI know the accusations are completely false,â€? Rutherford told The Associated Press last week. He said an independent investigation would clear his name and accused a Republican gubernatorial rival, businessman Bruce Rauner, of being behind the accusations in an attempt to undermine Rutherfordâ€™s campaign in advance of the March 18 primary. Rauner has denied the allegation. Michalowski submitted a letter of resignation to Rutherfordâ€™s office last week. The lawsuit names both the trea-
surer and his chief of staff, Kyle Ham, who didnâ€™t immediately return a message seeking comment. In the lawsuit, Michalowski alleges that he attended an April 2011 overnight retreat at Rutherfordâ€™s Chenoa home. He says Rutherford told him other staff members would be there, but no one else arrived. The lawsuit alleges that after Michalowski went to the guest bedroom that night, Rutherford entered the bedroom and grabbed his genital area. Michalowski said he pushed Rutherford away and later told Rutherfordâ€™s chief of staff about the incident. Michalowski alleges the aide told him, â€œAt least we have job security.â€? Michalowski also alleges Rutherford approached him a few months later while Michalowski was talking to a group of women at a Spring-
field bar prior to the Illinois State Fair. He claims the treasurer grabbed his arm and said: â€œIf you go home with me, you can have anything you want in the office.â€? The lawsuit also claims that during the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Rutherford asked Michalowski to go back to his hotel room. When Michalowski said no, Rutherford got angry and told him: â€œYou just said no to the treasurer,â€? the lawsuit states. The suit also claims Rutherford made Michalowski do work for his own campaign as well as for 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Rutherford was the Illinois chairman for the Romney campaign. Rutherford said his office conducted an internal investigation into the allegations and they showed no merit.

Suit accuses Rutherford of sexual harassment
Obama, Hollande tour Jefferson’s Monticello estate By JOSH LEDERMAN The Associated Press CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Celebrating the long-standing ties between their nations, President Barack Obama and French President Francois Hollande on Monday toured the sweeping Virginia estate of famed Francophile Thomas Jefferson. Obama’s rare out-oftown trip with a foreign leader opened two days of events marking Hollande’s state visit to the United States. Obama and Hollande arrived in Charlottesville, Va., after a short flight from Washington. Traveling together in Obama’s armored limousine, the presidential motorcade then wound its way through the rolling hills toward the white and brick mansion, with its signature crowning dome. As the two presidents – both wearing overcoats on a chilly February day – strolled along the estate’s portico, Obama declared, “This is a wonderful visit.” For Hollande, the trip to Washington was a chance to get an ocean away from his ro-

The French president is traveling in the U.S. without a female companion, following his very public split with longtime partner
Valerie Trierweiler. Their breakup has dominated headlines following a gossip magazine’s revelations about a secret tryst with a French ac-
tress. The last-minute change of plans created a tricky situation for American officials planning a high-profile event where diplomatic protocol and

etiquette are in the spotlight. Still, Hollande received a warm welcome reserved only for America’s closest allies. He arrived in Washington on Monday and was greeted by Obama at the nearby military base where dignitaries are received. The two leaders then boarded Air Force One for the trip to Virginia, using a smaller version of the presidential plane because of size restrictions at Charlottesville’s airport. The trip to Monticello was aimed at highlighting the deep ties between the U.S. and France. Jefferson, a Founding Father and former president, was also an early U.S. envoy to France and is honored with a statue on Paris’ Seine River. Monday marks the first time a sitting president has visited Monticello with a current foreign head of state. The White House, in announcing Monday’s visit, said, “Monticello reflects Jefferson’s affection for the people of France, the long-standing relations between our two democracies, and the shared values we hold dear: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

By SAMEER N. YACOUB The Associated Press BAGHDAD – An instructor teaching his militant recruits how to make car bombs accidentally set off explosives in his demonstration Monday, killing 21 of them in a huge blast that alerted authorities to the existence of the rural training camp in an orchard north of Baghdad. Almost two dozen people were arrested, including wounded insurgents trying to hobble away from the scene. The fatal goof by the al-Qaida breakaway group that dominates the Sunni insurgency in Iraq happened on the same day that the speaker of the Iraqi parliament, a prominent Sunni whom the militants consider a
traitor, escaped unhurt from a roadside bomb attack on his motorcade in the northern city of Mosul. Nevertheless, the events underscored the determination of the insurgents to rebuild and regain the strength they enjoyed in Iraq at the height of the war until U.S.-backed Sunni tribesmen turned against them. The militants currently are battling for control of mainly Sunni areas of western Iraq in a key test of the Shiite-led government’s ability to maintain security more than two years after the withdrawal of U.S. troops. While the Iraqi army has been attacking insurgent training camps in the vast desert of western Anbar province near
the Syrian border, it is unusual to find such a camp in the center of the country, just 60 miles north of the capital. The discovery shows that “the terrorist groups have made a strong comeback in Iraq and that the security problems are far from over, and things are heading from bad to worse,” said Hamid al-Mutlaq, a member of the parliament’s security and defense committee. The militants belonged to a network now known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an extremist group that recently broke with al-Qaida. The ISIL, emboldened by fellow fighters’ gains in the Syrian civil war, has tried to position itself as the champion of Iraqi
Sunnis angry at the government over what they see as efforts to marginalize them. Car bombs are one of the deadliest weapons used by this group, with coordinated waves of explosions regularly leaving scores dead in Baghdad and elsewhere across the country. The bombs are sometimes assembled in farm compounds where militants can gather without being spotted, or in car workshops in industrial areas. The explosion Monday took place at a camp tucked away in an orchard in the village of alJalam, a farming area that has been a stronghold of al-Qaida close to the Sunni city of Samarra. According to a police officer, an army official and a hospital official, all of whom
spoke on condition of anonymity for security reasons, the events unfolded as follows. The militants were attending a lesson on making car bombs and explosive belts when a glitch set off one of the devices during the car bomb part of the demonstration. Security forces rushed to the area after hearing the thunderous blast and arrested 12 wounded militants along with another 10 trying to flee. Authorities searched two houses and a garage in the orchard, finding seven car bombs as well as several explosive belts and roadside bombs. The cars did not have license plates. Bomb experts then started the work of defusing the devices. Later Monday, a bomb ex-

kered cease-fire in the city was renewed for three more days Monday. The truce, which began Friday, has been shaken by continued shelling and shooting that prevented some residents from escaping and limited the amount of food aid officials have been able to deliver into the besieged neighborhoods. U.N. humanitarian chief
Valerie Amos sharply criticized the two sides, saying U.N. and Syrian Red Crescent workers were “deliberately targeted.” The drama in Homs, where Amos said about 800 civilians have been evacuated so far, played out as activists on Monday reported new sectarian killings in Syria’s civil war. Al-Qaida-inspired rebels
killed more than two dozen civilians when they overran a village populated by minority Alawites on Sunday, Rami Abdurrahman of the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. They also killed around 20 local fighters in the village, he said. The violence further rattled peace talks that entered their second round Monday in Ge-
neva – and which quickly became mired in recriminations between President Bashar Assad’s government and the opposition in exile. The two sides’ first face-toface meetings adjourned 10 days ago, having achieved little. This time, the two appeared even further apart, with no immediate plans to even sit at the same table.

Lead like eagles, not lame ducks Birds of a feather, flock together, so the saying goes. One of the problems that happens when dozens of birds flock together is that, oftentimes, they leave behind a big, stinky mess. That goes for the geese and ducks that flock along the banks of the Des Plaines River. And it goes for lame-duck legislators who flock together after even-year November elections. Put 118 state representatives and 59 state senators in their respective chambers, with lame-duck members totally free of the worry of voter retribution, and they might just leave a big mess behind, too. The most infamous lame-duck session of the Illinois Legislature in recent years happened in January 2011. That’s when outgoing lawmakers joined forces with the powers that be to enact a big income tax increase on individuals and businesses. Last week, House Republicans introduced proposals to greatly limit the ability of the Legislature to approve controversial legislation, such as tax increases, after an election. The Republicans want to shoo lame ducks out of any post-election decision-making processes. They would do that by requiring the outgoing General Assembly to wrap up its work by Election Day. They also would advance Inauguration Day from the second Wednesday in January to the second Wednesday in December, thus narrowing the window for legislative mischief. The only time a lame-duck legislative session could be called would be when all legislative leaders and the governor agree to it, and then only for limited purposes. At this point, we note that Republicans number only 48 in the 118-member House. Because Democrats are in the majority with 70 members, the Republicans’ chances of getting their proposals approved are limited, to say the least. In addition, Republicans have not been immune to using lame-duck sessions to approve controversial legislation in the past. One infamous bill that granted lawmakers hefty pay increases won approval after the 1978 election. Now that the shoe has been on the other foot for a while, Republicans say they are ready for reform. Whatever their motivations, their measures could help to change Illinois’ crooked political culture by removing an underhanded, chicken-hearted method used by the Legislature to do its business. Then, rather than acting like lame ducks or timid chickens, our legislators might begin taking their leadership cues from another bird – the majestic eagle that graces the Illinois state seal and flag. We can only hope.
Behind the scenes in Rutherford’s office One of the reasons why people near Treasurer Dan Rutherford are so nervous these days is because of the possibility that other employees might come out of the woodwork with even more allegations. As I write this, the publicly revealed facts are still quite thin. A now former employee of Rutherford’s has claimed, without producing any hard evidence as of this writing, that he was sexually harassed and told to do political fundraising work. Rutherford has flatly denied the allegations, claiming they are politically motivated and part of a shakedown attempt that’s being pushed by his Republican gubernatorial primary opponent Bruce Rauner. The former employee, Rutherford claims, demanded $300,000 through his attorney to remain quiet. Rauner has denied any involvement. The treasurer’s office has negotiated two previous severance agreements, a fact that the
VIEWS Rich Miller accuser’s lawyer alluded to last week when she told WLS Radio’s Dan Proft “Their standard MO [mode of operation] is to work out standard severance agreements. That’s what they do, and they’ve been doing that the last two or three years with employees.” But a top Rutherford aide completely and adamantly denied last week that the prior severance agreements had anything to do with any sort of allegations of misconduct by Rutherford whatsoever. So, Rutherford’s allies can probably rest easy on that potential problem because it likely doesn’t exist. Rutherford has a reputation among his friends and acquaintances as being a pleasant, positive, somewhat quirky, but almost always upbeat guy. You
can’t help but like the man. He’s one of the truly nice guys in this state’s political world. Working for Rutherford, however, is sometimes anything but a pleasant experience. He is, like many in politics, a man driven by ambition who has long aimed his sights at a higher office. He works almost nonstop, and he doesn’t care for those who can’t keep up with him or don’t meet his standards. For instance, several weeks ago, Rutherford, an aide and a driver were on the road. Rutherford was not happy with the driver’s performance at an event. As punishment, Rutherford ordered the driver to remain in the car while he and the other aide went into a restaurant. Rutherford also reportedly took the car keys with him into the restaurant. The devastated young man called his sister and had her pick him up and quit on the spot.

Campaign doesnâ€™t seem as confident as they did one month ago Â›D@CC<I
:fek`el\ifdgX^\(A top aide to Rutherford confirmed the story the other day, but brushed it off, explaining that everybody has their bad moments. We all do, indeed, have our bad moments which shouldnâ€™t wind up being used to judge our complete character. While admittedly on the extreme end of his personality spectrum, itâ€™s that sort of behavior which has Rutherfordâ€™s allies worried about
what some other employees might say to a lawyer or a reporter. And there are a dozen or more stories of a similar nature. The treasurer, to put it bluntly, has more than a few disgruntled people in his office. But potential trouble from revenge-minded employees represents only a small part of the storm facing the treasurer.

Rutherford were telling their full stories last week to the independent investigator appointed by Rutherford to get to the bottom of the story. Weâ€™ll see if those stories hold up to scrutiny. The very real possibility of a Rutherford political collapse has not yet completely deterred labor groups from pushing ahead with their plan to attack Bruce Rauner via negative TV ads. However, they donâ€™t seem
as confident as they were a month ago that the strategy will work. One top labor official said last week that he never thought they had more than a 25 percent chance of defeating Rauner in the Republican primary, even though a month ago he appeared quite confident they could throw a knockout punch. The fallback plan appears to be to tarnish Rauner enough in the next month
or so that he doesnâ€™t start off with a huge and insurmountable lead over Gov. Pat Quinn after the primary ends. Quinn is already trailing all four of his Republican opponents by eight to ten points, so, barring a knockout, they want to stop any further Quinn erosion and knock Rauner back on his heels a bit.

BOYS BASKETBALL: LINCOLN-WAY WEST 52, LINCOLN-WAY CENTRAL 47
Pettinato jump-starts Warriors By DICK GOSS email@example.com NEW LENOX – Lincoln-Way West coach John White could not mask his feelings. He was pumped, and why not? After two tough losses earlier this season against crosstown rival Lincoln-Way Central, including a three-overtime marathon, his Warriors felt it was about time they beat the Knights for the first time. The eventuality came to fruition Monday night as West survived Central’s second-half rally and hung onto a 52-47 SouthWest Suburban Red victory. The Warriors (12-7, 6-4) jumped to a 31-16 halftime lead largely on the strength of freshman guard Marco Pettinato’s 16 points, including four three-pointers without a miss. Central (11-11, 3-7) battled back as close as 46-42 with 4:03 left and had several chances to get closer. Neither side scored in the next 3 minutes, 16 seconds, however, until West’s Jon Matotta iced it with four free throws in the final minute. “We’ve won some games this year, but that right there is the favorite win of my young career, especially after what happened last time,” White said, recalling the triple-overtime loss. “This was also the first time we ever beat them. And, [Central coach] Bob Curran is my mentor and best friend.” Pettinato did not score in the second half after his 16-point first half, but 6-5 senior forward Hayden Witt picked up the slack, scoring 14 of his 22 points in the second half. “This is nice, especially for the seniors,” Witt said. “They beat us three or four times here and five or six times total the last four years. The big thing was even when they came back, they never got on a really big run.” Witt cited Pettinato’s big first half and Marotta’s clutch free throws. “Marco stepped up,” he said. “He’s a fiery com-
petitor. He gives us a lot of momentum. And Jon’s free throws at the end really did it.” “Marco is a heck of a player for a freshman,” White said of Pettinato. “He’s poised and strong. He really works on his body. They seemed to give him a step or two and dare him to shoot it, and he stepped up and hit it. That’s what good players do.” The Warriors limited Central’s big gun, 6-6 senior forward Brad Bass, to 14 points on 6-of-19 shooting, including 0-for-11 from three-point range, although he did grab 17 rebounds. Alex Parks led the Knights with 18 points, including five three-pointers. “Brad [Bass] did not have a good night from outside, but to his credit, he got himself inside and did some things there,” Curran said. “This loss was a combination of a lot of things, and you could almost see it coming. “They never had beaten us, and John [White] has a good team. Marco [Pettinato] got them going early. Things happen when rival teams get together.” Curran cited an aspect of the game that has been hurting the Knights all season – free throw shooting. They missed six straight in the fourth quarter and finished 8-of-20 for 40 percent. “It’s those free throw woes again,” Curran said. “We’ve been shooting them in the 40s. We have been losing a lot of games that way.”

Morris cheer team places second at state By T.G. SMITH firstname.lastname@example.org BLOOMINGTON – What a way go to. Coaching in what likely is her last state final competitive cheerleading event, the Redskins sent coach Kristin Sanders off in style Saturday. Riding a wave of momentum that had the Redskins competing at the U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington for an unprecedented third straight day, Morris fought through the fatigue and was rewarded with a second-place finish at the IHSA event in the medium division. “It’s been nine years in the making since I’ve been here and I couldn’t be happier right now,” Sanders said. “We’ve had a great season and I’m happy to leave on a
note like this.” While Sanders will be stepping aside for family reasons, she certainly is leaving behind another group who seemingly became a family. “This is amazing. Our goal all year was to finish in the top 10. Once we made it into the top 10, we made a new goal for [Saturday] and we went out wanting to put our best performance out on that floor,” Morris captain Abby Dergo said. “That’s what we did. Taking home this trophy is just awesome. It makes it even better.” “I think it’s everything we’ve worked for. All of the practices and all of the injuries and it’s all paid off. When teams make it into the top 10, that’s an awesome accomplishment. All the girls who were here today were amaz-
ing,” Morris captain Morgan Hussey said. “To make it for the second time ever in history and to be the first team to ever podium is a real honor. Working along side these girls has been the best experience of my life. I love all of the coaches and I appreciate everything that everyone has done this year. Just knowing that what we did paid off and we got rewarded. It’s an awesome moment.” Morris had advanced out of the IHSA state preliminaries only once leading up to this season. That came in 2009 when the Redskins finished 10th with a team score of 79.72. “We’ve never gone this far in the history of Morris High School,” Morris captain Brittany Kenney said. “This is awesome experience to real-

ize how far that we’ve come.” “We’re just really proud to represent our school,” Morris captain Jacqueline Murphy said. “This is the second team to actually make it to day two and to podium and place is amazing.” The reason Morris was held over in Bloomington for three days was well documented. Their regional at Mahomet-Seymour was snowed out twice and then scheduled at U.S. Cellular Coliseum one day before the state event. Not to mention injuries earlier in the season. “I fell on my neck and was out in December at practice. This was my fourth competition back.” Kenney said. “For me, coming where I’ve come from since last year, it is awesome. I wouldn’t have had it any other way.”

Tigers’ best score earns best-ever 4th place finish at state By DICK GOSS email@example.com The Joliet West competitive cheerleading team did not win a state championship last weekend at U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington. Nor did the Tigers earn a spot on the podium. However, what they accomplished was historic nonetheless. West qualified for the finals in the Large Team Division and scored a school-record 93.72 points in finishing fourth. Lincoln-Way East won the division with 97.06, the highest score ever given to anyone in state competition. Neuqua Valley was second with 95.00 and Providence claimed third with 93.94. “Our kids did their absolute best,” Tigers coach Amy DiForti said. “It’s a little bittersweet that we didn’t get on the podium, but mostly we were excited. There’s nothing we could have done differently. We increased our score by almost three points in the finals from the day before. The teams that beat us were outstanding.” Lincoln-Way East, of course, is a competitor from the Southwest Suburban Blue. Lockport and Sandburg always are strong. “Our conference is unbelievable,” said DiForti, who is in her eighth season after coming to West from Marist. “It dominates in the cheerleading world. Competing against those teams in the conference and sectional, our girls realize how talented they are and how hard they have to work to get to that level. “What Lincoln-Way East just did is set the standard even higher.” DiForti’s work ethic is manifested in her team. “My coach is phenomenal,” said West athletic director Steve Millsaps, also the conference resource director for cheerleading. “She works the kids so hard. “Those two performanc-
Seniors Hakeem Allen, Kylah Aubry, Claudia Cali, Alysha Vazquez, Sammie Kowalczyk have been four-time state qualifiers. The other seniors include Amber Gore, Yaya Baht-Israel, Shane Brown and Cara Dunskis. Juniors include Yanni Stevens, Danielle Hofsteadter, Fatimah Ibidunni, Justyce Molette, Janie Wilson, Felicite Woods and Ty’Shalia Woods. Sophomores include Amina Lee, Carolina Soto, Tyeler Delrose and Jenna Thomas. Freshmen include Rachel MacDowell, Lydia Schrock and Brooklynn Johnson.

To get as close as they did to our first trophy since the school split was a great accomplishment.” The Large Team Division allows one boy on a team. The Tigers have four senior captains who were four-time state qualifiers in Hakeem Allen, Kylah Aubry, Claudia
Cali, Alysha Vazquez and Sammie Kowalczyk. The other seniors on the team are Amber Gore, Yaya Baht-Isreal, Shane Brown and Cara Dunskis. Juniors are Yanni Stevens, Danielle Hofsteadter, Fatimah Ibidunni, Justyce Molette, Janie Wilson, Felicite Woods and Ty’Shalia Woods.
Amina Lee, Carolina Soto, Tyeler Delrose and Jenna Thomas are sophomores, and the freshmen are Rachel MacDowell, Lydia Schrock and Brooklynn Johnson. “Cheerleading is probably the only sport where you have your competitive season and perform for other sports as well,” DiForti noted. “They work for 10 months out of the year. The things we do take a long time to perfect.” DiForti said the Tigers’ main routine is the same during the run of the competitive season. “We tweak it, perfect it, as we go along,” she said. “The pyramid is the highlight for our team. We did that very well at state.” Since the IHSA began competitive cheerleading competition in the 2005-2006 school
year, the Joliet area has been well represented. Lockport has won the Large Team Division twice and finished second three times. Lemont won its fourth Medium Team championship last weekend and has finished second three times. Providence won the Large Team title last year, and Peotone and Dwight have claimed Small Team crowns. West’s previous best finish was seventh in 2012. The Tigers are climbing the ladder, looking forward to the day earn a trophy. “Hopefully that day is coming,” DiForti said. “But we are losing nine really good seniors. They have done a great job for four years. Five of them, our five captains, have been on varsity all four years.”

Joliet West cheerleaders take their best shot
Lemont names Kooi new football coach Two-time state champion at Lockport takes reins from Eric Michaelsen STAFF REPORTS Bret Kooi, who led Lockport to back-to-back state championships in 2002 and 2003, officially was announced as Lemont’s new head football coach Monday. At its Feb. 10 meeting, the Lemont District 210 Board of Education approved the recommendation to hire Kooi, who has nearly 30 years of experience as an educator. In addition, his teams have achieved a great deal of success in his two decades as a head coach. Kooi will take over the program from longtime coach Eric Michaelsen, who will assume the role of the school’s principal July 1. “Bret Kooi is a first-class person with a tremendous amount of integrity and professionalism,” Lemont athletic
director John Young said. “Everyone who knows Bret has commented about his strong character and his ability to lead kids and adults. He has been a very successful head coach and knows what it takes for a program to contend for a state championship.” In a combined 20 seasons as head coach at Joliet West and Lockport, Kooi amassed a 116-85 (.577) record and led his squads to 10 IHSA playoff appearances, including a pair of state titles. Kooi headed up the Lockport program for 17 years (19942011), and finished his tenure with a 105-69 record (.603). Lockport reached the IHSA playoffs seven times in eight seasons from 1997-2004 and made 10 playoff appearances in all under Kooi’s direction, posting a 13-8 record in the postseason.
Over his 17 years, the Porters won four South Inter-Conference Association Blue titles – 1998, 2002, 2003 and 2004 – and captured consecutive IHSA Class 8A state championships in 2002 and 2003. The 2002 squad set a school record with 13 victories. After serving as an assistant coach at Providence Catholic, Kooi got his start as a head coach at Joliet West in 1989. In three seasons, the Tigers posted a combined 11-16 record and improved their win total each season. His final team finished 5-4 in 1991. Kooi comes to Lemont after serving as an offensive assistant at Lincoln-Way North for the past two seasons. The Phoenix advanced to the IHSA Class 6A playoffs both years, reaching the IHSA quarterfinals in 2013 when he filled the role of
offensive coordinator. Lincoln-Way North was second in the Southwest Suburban Red each season and averaged 35.8 points per game while posting a combined 16-6 record. In 2011, Kooi served as an assistant coach at Minooka under his brother, Bert. That season, Minooka went 6-4, finished second in the Southwest Prairie Conference standings, and advanced to the IHSA Class 7A playoffs. Kooi has served as a teacher at Lockport since 1992, having taught both mathematics and physical education over his 22-year tenure at the school. Though he is taking over the reins as Lemont’s football coach, he will continue to teach at Lockport. Prior to arriving at Lockport, Kooi taught math for four
years at Joliet West and began his career with a three-year stint teaching math at Providence. Kooi earned a bachelor’s degree in physical education from Millikin University in 1985 and was awarded a master’s degree and Type 75 certificate in administrative education from Governors State University in 1999. He was inducted into Millikin’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 2006. Over 12 seasons (2002-13), Michaelsen’s Lemont teams compiled a 106-33 record, made nine straight playoff appearances from 2004 through 2012 and won seven conference championships. The Indians twice finished as the IHSA Class 6A state runner-up (2007, 2008), and dozens of his players have moved on to play collegiately.

By EDDIE PELLS The Associated Press KRASNAYA POLYANA, RUSSIA – Rider after rider took a crash course Monday night on an Olympic halfpipe that looked only half ready with less than 24 hours until men’s competition is set to start. There were dozens of falls, very few big tricks and a lot of complaining during a practice session that was pushed from morning to night while workers tried to make fixes. The men’s event is Tuesday, and American Shaun White will be seeking his third straight gold medal. “When you see every other person fall, you know something’s wrong,” said American Hannah Teter, who took gold in 2006 and silver four years ago. “It’s a little dangerous. I’ve seen more people fall today than I saw all season. It’s dangerous because it’s crappy.” American Danny Davis
labeled the halfpipe as “garbage” on Sunday. After returning Monday, he said things were slightly improved but not ideal. “It’s a bummer to show up to an event like the Olympics and not have the quality of the halfpipe match the quality of the riders,” Davis said. “Anyone who watched practice tonight can see there were a bunch of people bouncing around in the flat bottom.” White called it “pretty hard to ride,” but said it was nothing riders haven’t dealt with before at other competitions. “The flat bottom is just sand and mush,” he said. “It’s pretty heavy. And once everyone gets in there, it just turns to mush.” Riders said the steeply vertical pitch of the halfpipe has largely been corrected. But the bottom of the pipe is bouncy and slow. Dozens of riders clattered through the bottom, which slows speed and causes wrecks.
Davis said organizers told him they would treat the halfpipe with chemicals that keep the ice frozen at higher temperatures. Highs were in the 40s on Monday. American coach Mike Jankowski said riders were simply going to have to deal with the conditions presented to them. “If everything were perfect every time and this were an indoor sport, we’d be figure skating,” he said. “Whoever deals with the conditions the best is going to win a medal and whoever gives up isn’t going to win a medal.” American Kelly Clark, who won gold in 2002 and bronze in 2010, said conditions were less
than ideal but she’s been preparing for that. “Any less-than-perfect pipe we dealt with the last four years, I said, ‘If this is what we’re dealing with in Sochi, I want to be ready,’ ” she said. “I look at it as an opportunity.” Four years ago in Vancouver, riders complained about the pipe in the lead-up but said conditions improved for the actual contest. They’re hoping for the same thing here. “The first contest is tomorrow and nobody’s ready,” Teter said. “They haven’t been able to practice their tricks. They’re trying to stay alive every run. It’s harsh.”

VIEWS Rick Morrissey SOCHI, Russia â€“ For the United States, these are the Patrick Kane Winter Olympics. That might be a bit frightening to those of you who still think of Kane as the immature, bare-chested party monster who never would say no to a night out. Times change, and people change. Or maybe some people donâ€™t change, but they just get smarter about their nocturnal habits. Whatever the case, thereâ€™s no doubt Kane deserves to be the face of the Sochi Games for the United States. Heâ€™s that good and that exciting as an athlete. Heâ€™s bigger than Shaun White, Bode Miller and Shani Davis, for the simple reason that heâ€™s one of the biggest stars in a sport that happens to matter more than once every four years. Then again,
heâ€™ll be Americaâ€™s favorite until a U.S. female figure skater wins a gold medal, in which case the country will dump the Blackhawksâ€™ star like one of the stuffed animals tossed at Gracie Goldâ€™s feet. But Kane is so unique in his skills, so electric with the puck that eyes canâ€™t help but follow him. NBC, always on the lookout for a hero, will be looking at him intently, quite possibly to the point of distraction. He always has done well in these moments. He helped lead the United States to a silver medal in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Several months later, he scored the Stanley Cup-clinching goal in overtime for the Hawks. He put on another championship ring last season. Now comes Sochi. â€œI think you always want to prove yourself as a big-time player in big games,â€? he said Monday. â€œAnother thing is just to try to prove yourself at these highest levels of hockey. These are great opportuni-
ties â€“ opportunities that donâ€™t come along often, if at all.â€? When it comes to hockey and flair, Kane is all American. If he were Canadian, you get the distinct feeling heâ€™d be a little too flashy for the taste of our neighbors to the north. They like their idols to have a determined look to them, the way Patrick Kane Hawks captain Jonathan Toews does â€“ the way Toews probably does when heâ€™s eating cotton candy, blowing soap bubbles or power-sleeping. Kane still has an impish look on his face, as though he knows he just got away with something. But there will be weight on his 25-year-old shoulders. â€œI think thereâ€™s even more pressure on him this time around for that team, considering they made it to final game last time,â€? Toews said. â€œTheyâ€™re going to be a tough team to beat, and heâ€™s going to
WHAT TO WATCH
watching, how much coverage there was, how big it was for the game of hockey just in general,â€? he said. â€œIn that sense, I was happy to be a part of it, but it still stings.â€? He was good as a 21-yearold on the 2010 Olympic team. He has the ability to go on a tear in this Olympics. Toews knows it. â€œHe goes about his business the same way, no matter what,â€? he said. â€œHeâ€™s played in an Olympic final before, silver medalist. Heâ€™s won two [Stanley] Cups. Heâ€™s got a lot of experience. Iâ€™ve been able to see what heâ€™s able to do up close.â€? I love when Toews finds a way to take a playful shot at Kane. But â€“ who knows? â€“ maybe Kane will be the one crowing about his gold medal this time. And his unofficial title as the American Idol of the Sochi Games. s Rick Morrissey is a Chicago Sun-Times sports reporter who can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

be right in the middle of it.â€? Kane isnâ€™t a tough guy. He knows how to avoid a hit better than most players in the NHL. But he is as feared as anyone because he can make a defender look absolutely silly. Itâ€™s why defenders give him so much space when he has the puck. They donâ€™t know what heâ€™s going to do with it. They wonâ€™t in Sochi, either. He should be helped by the bigger Olympic surface and an international game that puts a premium on puck movement. If you had the pleasure of watching the gold-medal game between the United States and Canada in the 2010 Games, then you know what drama combined with hockey excellence looks like. The United States tied the score on a goal by Zach Parise with 24.5 seconds left in regulation. Canada won, 3-2, in overtime on a goal by Sidney Crosby. Kane didnâ€™t watch a tape of that game until recently. â€œAt the time, you donâ€™t realize how big of a game it was and how many people were

Paramedic/firefighter works around the clock for love of job By JEANNE MILLSAP
The Herald-News correspondent
Paramedics and emergency medical technicians are used to jumping into action to attend to life-and-death situations at a moment’s notice – sometimes even when they’re off duty. Edward Eddy, paramedic and firefighter with the Channahon Fire Protection District, was off duty last week, pulling off Interstate 55 at the Route 6 ramp when something caught his eye. A semitrailer had jackknifed on the interstate’s northbound side. A red passenger car also was involved. Eddy immediately called in the accident and told his co-workers the best way to access the scene. Before he knew it, he was at the fire department in an emergency vehicle headed to the site. It paid off, too. There was more than one accident along that stretch of icy interstate and the responders needed all the help they could get. “It was chaotic,” Eddy said, “and there was significant damage. ... A Troy rig was already there. The chief from Wilmington came, Minooka came, Lockport, the helicopter ... we all worked together.” Eddy immediately climbed up on the semi, evaluated the condition of the driver and did his best to keep him calm. It took his whole team and several others to extricate the driver from his rig before he was flown to a hospital. “I felt happy the way it turned out,” Eddy said. “I was glad of what everyone there did. We all worked together great.” Channahon Fire Protection fire chief John Petrakis praised those individuals

Edward Eddy is a paramedic and firefighter with the Channahon Fire Protection District. who choose to serve as paramedics. “I don’t know if there’s a word out there that describes the uniqueness of these men and women,” Petrakis said. “To be prepared for anything and everything takes a special kind of person, and these people are extraordinarily special.” The job can take a toll at times, Petrakis said, espe-
cially when they can’t save a patient. “They’re human, and the situations we put them in are not always human,” he said. Being a paramedic can mean transporting a patient to a nursing home, responding to a cardiac arrest call, helping at a multi-vehicle accident and even gently lifting a crying child off a de-
ceased parent, Petrakis said. They’ve seen it all. Ed Matteson, vice president for Kurtz Ambulance Service, said the two types of ambulance runs are public and private. Public ambulance service is associated with 911 dispatch centers. Private service provides transportation between hospitals, health care centers, dialysis units and similar facilities. EMT and paramedic jobs are good ones, Matteson said, for the right kind of person. “The individual must be interested in helping people,” he said, “and not be squeamish. ... They are entrusted with a pretty broad spectrum of responsibilities,
too, like calculating drug dosages in the field. ... I tell them if they can intubate somebody upside-down in a car in the dark, they might make a good paramedic.” Matteson said he hires EMTs and paramedics. Most firefighters today also are paramedics. Cecily Meadows, EMS coordinator through the Morris Fire Protection and Ambulance District and Kurtz, said she loves the challenge of being a paramedic and the fact that every day is different. To become an EMT basic takes one semester of college, Meadows said. From there, paramedics receive an additional one year of college and hospital training. Morris Hospital, Meadows said, trains paramedic students through a Joliet Junior College program. In addition to classroom education and studying, paramedic students spend clinical hours in the intensive care unit, the emergency room, the pediatric intensive care unit and in ambulances. “The programs are so well-rounded,” Meadows said, “because you never know what you’re going to see on a call.” Once certified, there is no rest from learning. Paramedics continually run through drills, learning new techniques and practicing old ones. When the alarm goes off, Meadows said she doesn’t panic. She knows that after all the training, it will be second nature when she’s on site. “When you are in an uncontrolled setting,” she said, “your instinct and all your training will take over. What good is it going to do anyone if I panic?”
I DON’T KNOW IF THERE’S A WORD OUT THERE THAT DESCRIBES THE UNIQUENESS OF THESE MEN AND WOMEN. TO BE PREPARED FOR ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING TAKES A SPECIAL KIND OF PERSON, AND THESE PEOPLE ARE EXTRAORDINARILY SPECIAL.” John Petrakis, :_XeeX_fe=`i\Gifk\Zk`feÔi\Z_`\]

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder
This week, we are looking at counting – arguably the most important factor for success at the game. And when you are on defense, you will sometimes need partner to give you a count signal so that you can work out how many cards declarer has in the suit – as in this deal. In three no-trump, declarer starts with only five top tricks: three spades and two diamonds. He needs to get the rounded suits going. So, after taking the first trick with his spade king, he leads the club king. East wants to take his club ace when South is playing his last club. So West must give a count signal. Since West has an even number of clubs, he should go high-low, playing first the five (or eight, but I like second-highest from four), then the two. This will tell East to take the second club trick. (If West has only two clubs, South has four and holding up twice would not help.) East leads back his second spade to declarer’s ace. South, needing to get into the dummy, leads the heart king. West plays his nine, starting a high-low with a doubleton. East, aware of what is happening, holds up his ace. South will probably try a low heart to dummy’s queen, but East wins with his ace and shifts to the diamond jack (or leads back the heart 10), and the contract is dead. Finally, note that at trick one, East should play his spade three, a discouraging signal denying help in spades. But a defender does not signal attitude when declarer leads a suit (except perhaps to play the top of touching honors).

To count on defense, count on partner
Best friendâ€™s past abuse haunts gatherings Teenâ€™s girlfriend says Dear Abby: My best friend of 20 years, â€œClaire,â€? has suffered bouts of depression ever since I have known her. She recently confided to me that her brother had repeatedly sexually abused her as a child. When she went to her mother for help, her mother told her she needed to â€œthank God that it was happening because it would make her a stronger person.â€? Her mother is dead now, but her father is still alive. I am furious at him for allowing the abuse to happen under his roof. Abby, the family acts like it never happened! Claire invites her dad to events we plan together like birthdays. How do I attend knowing what I know? I donâ€™t want to sit across a table from him. My husband is an abuse survivor and feels even more strongly than I do. It has made get-togethers miserable for us. Should we just smile and pretend we donâ€™t know because we canâ€™t fight my best friendâ€™s fight for her? How do we get over the anger? â€“ Confused In Oklahoma Dear Confused: Years ago, someone explained to me that depression is anger turned inward.
DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips Your friend is enduring these bouts of depression because she was never allowed to express her anger where it belonged â€“ at her brother and her mother. Whether the mother ever told her husband what was going on, or whether it was the continuation of a long family tradition of sexual abuse, is something we donâ€™t know. But if you havenâ€™t suggested to Claire that she could benefit from counseling, you should. As to you and your husband participating in these family gatherings, my advice is to stop doing it. Celebrate special occasions with your friend right before or after these occasions; many people have pre- or post-birthday get-togethers, and thatâ€™s what I recommend in a case like this. Dear Abby: I recently became involved with a longtime female friend of mine when she was in town. I have always loved â€œMirandaâ€? as a friend, but now I also feel attracted to her as a potential
perfect match. The problem is she lives far away. We keep in touch almost daily. I love that, but it makes me miss her, and I end up thinking about her all day, which doesnâ€™t help. She says she has feelings for me, too, but â€œthe timing isnâ€™t in our favor.â€? What can I do to go about my day without letting thoughts of Miranda rule my brain? Abby, are long-distance relationships even worth trying? â€“ Anxious In Colorado Dear Anxious: Of course they are. As the saying goes, â€œnothing ventured, nothing gained.â€? Years ago, couples who were separated by distances courted via the mail. Couples separated by war before the invention of the Internet managed to nurture relationships that led to marriage. So, consider yourself lucky that you and Miranda can be in touch every day, even though at this point itâ€™s frustrating. As to the problem of her dominating your thoughts all day, a way to deal with it is to STAY BUSY. s Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.
Lasik surgery can offer dramatic improvements in vision Dear Doctor K: Iâ€™ve just scheduled LASIK surgery. Can you explain what will happen during the procedure? Dear Reader: To understand LASIK surgery, you first need to know a few things about the eye and what it does. Basically, your eye is like a camera: It focuses the light coming into it to make a sharp image. That image then is captured on a kind of film (or, in digital cameras, a sensor). The parts of the eye that focus the image are primarily the cornea and the lens. The part that captures the image is the retina, a flat layer of nerve cells at the back of the eye. The cells of the retina then send the image to the back of the brain â€“ the part that allows us to see and interpret the images. During LASIK surgery, your doctor uses a laser to reshape your cornea. The cornea is the clear, round â€œwindowâ€? of tissue that allows light to enter the front of the eye. By reshaping the cornea, the surgeon adjusts the focus of light on the retina. LASIK can improve vision in people who are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism. You will meet with your sur-
ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff geon and his or her team before your procedure. During this exam, the team will take precise measurements of your eyes, including the shape and thickness of your cornea. On the day of your procedure, your doctor may give you a mild sedative to help you relax. You will lie down in a reclining chair. Youâ€™ll be given numbing eye drops so you will not feel pain or discomfort. An instrument will be positioned to keep your eyelids open, and a ringlike suction device will be placed on the front of your eyes to hold your cornea in place. The surgeon will use a delicate instrument to slice a tiny, hinged flap of tissue from the front of your cornea. You will not see or feel the instrument cutting your cornea. The surgeon will remove the suction ring from your eye and fold back the hinged flap of cornea. At this point, the surgeon
will use the laser to reshape the underlying protein fibers of your cornea. This reshaping is based on the precise measurements made during your pre-surgery exam. Finally, the doctor will reposition the hinged flap of cornea. No stitches are necessary. (Iâ€™ve put an illustration of the LASIK procedure on my website, AskDoctorK.com.) LASIK is an outpatient procedure; it generally takes 10 to 15 minutes for each eye. Some surgeons work on both eyes at one sitting, while others operate on only one eye per sitting. The cornea heals quickly. You may notice dramatic improvements in vision almost immediately following your surgery. By the way, Iâ€™ll bet youâ€™re eager to know the full medical name for which LASIK is the abbreviation. Itâ€™s: Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis. If you already knew that, youâ€™re smarter than I am: I had to look it up.

relationship is over
Dr. Wallace: My girlfriend and I have been dating steady for over a year. We are both 17 and will both graduate from high school in June of 2014. We are both going to be students at Northern Illinois University since we both want to become teachers. My girlfriend has all the qualities Iâ€™m looking for to be my wife. We have even discussed getting married after we graduate from NIU. We have had many, many wonderful times together, but we also have had a few battles and have kissed and made up. About a week ago, we got into a battle that ended when my girlfriend said that our relationship was over forever and she was never going to change her mind. I admitted that I made a mistake and I apologized and said that I would never make the same mistake again. Iâ€™ve tried talking with her again, but no luck. I even went to her mother and asked her to help me, but all she would say was that â€œthe relationship is over.â€? Dr. Wallace, what can I do to get my girlfriend to renew our relationship once again? I will admit that I made a mistake, but everyone in this world makes mistakes. I only made one mistake and was man enough to admit it. Donâ€™t you agree that a wonderful relationship should not have been destroyed because of one mistake? â€“ Nameless, Rockford Dear Nameless: One mistake usually doesnâ€™t destroy a wonderful relationship. Contact me again and tell me exactly what your mistake was. Then Iâ€™ll give you my answer. Regardless of the outcome of the relationship, I would encourage you
â€™TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace both to follow through and enroll at Northern Illinois University. NIU is an outstanding institution of higher learning and their Department of Education ranks with the very best. I can vouch for NIU. I was fortunate to attend Northern and earn a Master of Science Degree in Education, which served me well in my career. Dr. Wallace: Iâ€™m 16, and a couple of days ago I was looking at my birth certificate and I noticed something odd. I was born in October of 1997 and my parents were married in April of 1997. When I asked my mom if I was born prematurely, she said no. This being the case, my mom had to have been pregnant before she married my father. My parents are now divorced, and I feel very bad that they might have gotten married just to make me legitimate. â€“ Megan, Manchester, N. H. Dear Megan: You had nothing to say about their getting married, and you had nothing to do with their divorce. You are the innocent one, and you have no reason to feel even the slightest bit responsible. Your parents divorced because they were incompatible. All babies are legitimate, regardless of whether or not their parents were married to each other. s Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers. Although he is unable to reply to all of them individually, he will answer as many as possible in this column. Email him at email@example.com.

Joel Kinnaman (left) stars in the film “Robocop.”
‘RoboCop’ is a worthy remake By ED SYMKUS Dfi\:ek\ekEfn Do you ever get that sinking feeling when a favorite film from your past is about to be released as a brand-new package, as a – gulp – remake? My antennae went shooting up even further when I learned that the remake of “RoboCop” was being assigned a PG-13 rating. Really? A reboot of the gruesomely violent, properly R-rated 1987 Paul Verhoeven film is getting a soft PG-13? Truth be told, the rating fits. The original film was far harder to take, at least in the violence department, than this one. But without many more comparisons to that classic piece of corn (which I’ve probably seen 20 times), I’m happy to report that this one, with better visuals, better acting, better writing and all sorts of well-crafted political, philosophical and sociological questions tossed into the mix, is a rarity: a remake that, for the most part, gets it right. Verhoeven’s film was constantly shocking in its bloodshed (a bullet to the
brain of the good guy, a terrific decapitation of a bad guy who is first bathed in toxic waste) and often hilarious in its characterizations (most of the villains were braying, goofy maniacs who killed for a thrill), but Brazilian action director Jose Padilha and first-time scripter Joshua Zetumer give us a film that maintains a high quotient of violence, mostly through excessive firepower rather than close-up brutality, and they pretty much strip it clean of humor. Oh, we’ve got Samuel L. Jackson as a fast-talking, rabble-rousing, conservative TV host, overplaying it for all it’s worth, as only he can get away with. But the film is short, rather than long, on one-liners (although I counted three variations of iconic lines from the original). And it reaches high points of emotionalism in a couple of characters: Murphy (Joel Kinnaman), the cop who’s in the wrong place at the wrong time, crosses the wrong people, and ends up, through the magic of technology, literally starting life over as RoboCop; and Dr. Norton (Gary Oldman), the sci-
entist who develops and nurtures our hero, but ends up, kind of like Victor Frankenstein, not quite sure what he’s actually created. For those who like their big, bad, machine gun-toting robots, there are ED-209s and EM-208s aplenty, who act rather than think. For fans of evil empire-like corporations, there’s OmniCorp, and its CEO Raymond Sellars (Michael Keaton in fine form), and his grim, determined weapons expert Rick Mattox (Jackie Earle Haley, best role in the film). And if you like your satire with a dark but savvy edge, take note that the script has this black-suited, only slightly futuristic RoboCop “made in China.” Marred only by a confusing discussion of the “illusion of free will” – Is he a man who’s also a machine or a machine who’s also a man? – and too much time spent on Murphy’s wife and son (Abbie Cornish, John Paul Ruttan), the film’s a success in almost every other area. This “RoboCop” is no RoboCopy of the original.
