Sammy Hagar is coming to Taste of Joliet June 27 Rock and Roll Hall of Famer could be big draw for festival BY BILL WIMBISCUS JOLIET – The Red Rocker will rock the Taste of Joliet this summer. Guitar legend Sammy Hagar will headline the Joliet Park District event June 27 at Joliet Memorial Stadium, 3000 W. Jefferson St. Park district officials announced Wednesday the Hagar concert. The immediate response already has raised hopes that Hagar will be the biggest draw yet for the annual three-day food and music festival. “The response has been huge,” said Brad Staab, marketing director for the district. “It’s been the biggest we’ve had so far.” Advance tickets for 200 reserve spots in front of the stage have been selling briskly, Executive Director Dominic Egizio said Wednesday. Last year, the event drew a record 18,000 fans to its Saturday night Hunter Hayes concert. The district is optimistic Hagar’s appearance could eclipse that mark. “We’re hoping this could be our biggest night ever,” Egizio said, noting that Memorial Stadium stands and grounds have the capacity to hold up to 25,000. Staab said the district has

Guitar legend Sammy Hagar will headline the Joliet Park District event June 27 at Joliet Memorial Stadium, 3000 W. Jefferson St. been talking to Hagar for several years, but scheduling problems always prevented his booking for the festival. Hagar’s more than 40-year career as a guitarist and singer includes such bands as Van Halen – where he replaced frontman David Lee Roth – Montrose, Los Tres

Gusanos and his current project, Chickenfoot. Hagar also has had a long successful solo career. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007 as a member of Van Halen. In addition to Van Halen hits such as “Right Now” and “Why Can’t This Be Love,” Hagar is known for songs like “There’s Only One Way to Rock,” “Your Love is Driving Me Crazy,” “Bad Motor Scooter” and “I Can’t Drive 55.” Retro acts like Hagar, REO Speedwagon and Rick Springfield have always played well in Joliet, Egizio said. “We’re always looking for family-friendly rock music, so that limits us a bit,” Egizio said. “But we also want someone who attracts a lot of different generations, someone that the kids will like and that their parents will come out to enjoy, as well.” Hagar will perform at 9 p.m. His opening act will be announced next month. The Sunday headliner also will be announced this spring. Country Thompson Square will headline at 9 p.m. June 28. Opening act will be Brett Eldredge at 7:15 p.m. Other Saturday acts will include Dan + Shay at 4 p.m. and Eric Pasley at 5:30 p.m. Tickets for any of the concerts is $35 for front section reserved and $10 for general admission.

Business owners grapple with decision ahead on concealed-carry By LAUREN LEONE–CROSS

• Thursday, February 27, 2014

JOLIET – J & M Jewelers store owner James Dactelides was caught in the crossfire of a botched shootout with an armed robber at his downtown shop – but he survived. That was 14 years ago. To this day, Dactelides said he believes it was a weapon he had in the store that saved his life and gave police a fair shot at catching the person responsible. With the state’s first concealed-carry permits expected to be issued in March, Dactelides said he intends to post a 4-by-6-inch sign in his store window reminding patrons that guns are not allowed inside. He said he doesn’t trust others to pack heat while perusing his jewelry store, at 82 N. Chicago St., and believes not everyone should carry a loaded weapon in public. “I carry but I don’t want people in my shop to. Some people don’t have good brakes, you know? But good people need to protect themselves,” Dactelides said. “I have to carry because of the business I am in.” Dactelides was alone in his downtown shop back in 2000 when someone walked into the store and tried to rob him, he said. “I shot back at him. That’s why they caught him,” he said, adding that’s the only gun-related incident to happen at his store in his 43 years at his downtown location. Illinois State Police released on its website back in October a standard “No Guns Allowed” sign that businesses can post to warn people from bringing guns inside their store. The 4-by-6-inch template, which shows a handgun with a red slash through it, can be downloaded directly from the state agency’s website. These signs are popping up in some store windows in Joliet, but it’s unclear just how

Rob Winner –

A “No Guns Allowed” sign is posted on the front door of Longshots Sports Bar and Grill in Joliet. Illinois State Police released the sign in October, which can be downloaded directly from the state agency’s website. many businesses will end up allowing or barring guns. Illinois’ new concealed-carry law outlines a long list of prohibited places, including schools, bars and government buildings. But business owners can use discretion when deciding whether to allow guns in their establishments. Ron Van Dyke, owner of RP Shooting Sports in Joliet, said Monday he had difficulty at first deciding whether to let people carry in his store, but ultimately chose to allow it. Van Dyke, who’s also a certified firearms instructor, said he is hesitant because of the nature of his business – not because he doesn’t trust law-abiding gun owners. “My only concern would be from a safety standpoint. Like if you’re at a restaurant or something, there’s no concern

“[Business owners] think it’s the magic sign that’s going to stop the bad guy, but it’s not.” Ron Van Dyke Owner of RP Shooting Sports in Joliet of someone pulling a gun out,” Van Dyke said. “But here, we’re constantly dealing with weapons. Somebody could just innocently say, ‘Here, I want to show you my gun,’ maybe because they need sights or need a magazine, and that puts me in an odd position because they’re basically drawing a gun on me.” Van Dyke said he previously had a sign posted at his former Plainfield location re-

questing that off-duty police officers inform him they have weapons with them. Van Dyke said he believes posting “No Guns” signs create gun-free zones and inadvertently welcome shooters and other criminals because they think they can’t be stopped. “[Business owners] think it’s the magic sign that’s going to stop the bad guy, but it’s not,” Van Dyke said. Mark Sherf, co-owner of West Side Music Center, 1009 W. Jefferson St., said he and his wife, Jenny, plan to post a sign in their store window. “We have music lessons here. A lot of kids come in here,” Sherf said. “I don’t sell guns. I don’t sell ammunition. I sell instruments. I don’t drag my guitar around with me wherever I go, you know? I don’t see the need for ev-

erybody to have their gun on them wherever they go.” Guns make him nervous, regardless of who’s carrying, he said. Sherf said he doesn’t buy the pro-gun argument that there’s such a thing as a responsible gun owner. He cited the ongoing Florida case in which a 71-year-old retired Tampa police captain fatally shot a theatergoer last month over texting. The police captain told authorities he was acting in self-defense. “That was a retired cop who’s supposedly a more responsible gun owner than all of us,” Sherf said. “I don’t buy that argument. We as a society have lost the ability to speak to one another. If it comes down to speaking with bullets and guns, where are we headed?”

Educator Bonnie McBeth passes away By VIKAAS SHANKER PLAINFIELD – The late Bonnie McBeth is being remembered as a vibrant champion of early childhood education in the Plainfield community. McBeth died Tuesday morning at age 85, but she left a legacy of teaching and support for education, said Tom Hernandez, director of community relations for Plainfield Community Consolidated School District 202. “She was an educational leader, kind of an icon in this community,” Hernandez said, adding that she was a bright, funny and strong person. “She was one of those people who had a vision, and lived long enough to realize that vision.” McBeth was the first kindergarten teacher in Plainfield and taught for 38 years in the school district, which named the Bonnie McBeth Early Learning Center after her in 2001. “I’m very surprised and very sad,” said Kristin Brower, principal of the early learning center. “She is somebody that we loved having in our building. She comes every school year to read ‘Polar Express’ to the kids. When we say the real Bonnie McBeth is here, she’s a celebrity for the kids.” Brower said she is working with the parent-teacher organization and the district to plant a tree and bench at the center in her honor. McBeth donated $25,000 of her own money in 2007 to start the Bonnie McBeth Scholarship Fund, which awards

$1,500 scholarships to early childhood educators for dedication to students and professional excellence.

“What she’s leaving behind is the scholarship,” said Ina Brixey, a longtime friend and former teacher in the school

district. “Even past her lifetime, she will be helping educators be the best they can be.” McBeth donated even more

money into the fund to keep the scholarships afloat during the recession, but her contribution wasn’t just financial, Hernandez said. “She didn’t just write a check,” Hernandez said. “Every year she personally handpicked the winners. And we, with [Brixey] would personally deliver checks to the winners.” McBeth wasn’t known just for her support for early childhood education, Brixey said. She was an active member of the Plainfield Historical Society and of the oldest book club in Plainfield. Plainfield resident Eileen Diercks was neighbors with McBeth and knew her through family and church. “Bonnie was a multi-faceted person,” Diercks said. “She was always interested in promoting the scholarships. But she was also very involved in church activities, like how she would oversee the landscaping of the church.” While being a Sunday school and Bible teacher, McBeth also was involved with the Apple Tree School Board and Will County Reading Association. And, she was a garden enthusiast. She co-founded the Reading Recovery Program with Brixey and served in several leadership roles. The visitation for McBeth iwill be from 3 to 8 p.m. Friday at Overman-Jones Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 15219 S. Joliet Road in Plainfield, and from noon to 1 p.m. Saturday at Plainfield Congregational United Church of Christ, 24040 W. Fraser Road.

Elwood wants truck traffic reduced at railroad crossing By LAUREN LEONE–CROSS ELWOOD – Village officials want to reduce truck traffic at

a railroad crossing where the gates were crashed 47 times last year. Elwood officials are reaching out to the Illinois Commerce

Commission in hopes of reducing heavy truck traffic and improving warning systems at the Walter Strawn Road and Illinois 53 railroad crossing, citing

an increase in broken gates and one too many close calls. Last year, for example, a semitrailer that was stuck on the crossing because of backed-

up traffic, was nearly hit by an oncoming Amtrak train,

Church gets approval on subdivision plat By KRIS STADALSKY Shaw Media Correspondent MINOOKA – Village Christian Church received approval from Minooka trustees Tuesday night on a final plat of subdivision to construct a building even though the annexation agreement was postponed until March. A small portion of the 9½acres on Bell Road extends into Channahon’s boundary limits. Minooka must annex the property in order for the project to move forward. Even though the annexation paperwork was not ready Tuesday night, trustees approved the subdivision plat anyway. While a bit unorthodox, handling the process in this order has been done before, Village Trustee Dick Martin said. The plat of subdivision is contingent on approval of the annexation agreement, Village Administrator Dan Duffy said. Village Christian Church is in the midst of purchasing the property from Brannick Families Farm. The congregation has been meeting at Minooka Junior High for nine years, said Lead Pastor Nate Ferguson, and has grown from 30 to 500 people. The church’s plan is to spend this year designing and planning the space, and hopefully begin construction in spring of 2015. Plans will include a worship center, a dynamic space for kids and a great space for youth, Ferguson said. “We are trying to have a facility that will help us reach those ages,” Ferguson said. “Minooka and Channahon have a lot of young people.” In a related matter, village trustees in a 6-0 vote gave approval for the village to pick up half the tab to install a 593-lin-

s with to o h p r u o y re a h S Will County!

ear foot water main on Bell Road that will service Village Christian Church and connect to the existing line. The village will pay up to $25,000 for their portion of the bill.

Open space grant Trustees gave the go-ahead to the village administrator to apply for a ComEd Green Region program grant in the amount of $10,000. The Village of Minooka is in negotiations for a small parcel of land with an asking price of $120,000. Due to the sensitivity of negotiations, the location of the property has not been identified, according to village records. The village has secured $110,000 for the project so far. The property will be conserved as open space for the community. Minooka’s comprehensive plan calls for 20 percent open space in the village.

In other business • Trustees approved a class E liquor license for Minooka Lions Club to be used during Summerfest on June 20 and 21. • Trustees approved an additional $3,850 to architect Greg Norris for additional work needed in the village hall expansion. The additional costs will cover revisions and construction drawings for replacement of windows and the locker/bathrooms. • When complete, the village hall will have a large community room with locker rooms and additional office space for future use. • Trustees approved a 10year recreational lease with ComEd for property the utility owns at Lions Park. The lease is renewed every 10 years.

Detective describes scene at defendant’s

The Herald-News / • Thursday, February 27, 2014


By BRIAN STANLEY JOLIET – A detective testified Wednesday that police found marijuana, bundles of cash and a nervous suspect at Darrell Perkins’ apartment after a shooting in 2012. Perkins, the suspect, is on trial for murder this week in the shooting that killed Tevin L. Bridges, 18. Bridges was shot at the doorway of Perkins’ apartment in Lois Place. Perkins ran an illegal business there, selling marijuana, cigarettes and chicken. Joliet Det. Tizoc Landeros said Perkins acted nervously when he was questioned in his apartment after police arrived. “He was shaky and jittery, like he drank too many cups of coffee,” Landeros said. Landeros testified Perkins said “no” when he was later asked if the victim had come to rob him. Landeros was among the

officers who searched Perkins’ apartment and found four small bags of marijuana, bullets, a large knife and brass knuckles on tables and dressers in Perkins’ locked bedroom, he said. Police also found a bookbag filled with individual baggies of marijuana and business cards for Perkins’ illegal resale operation inside the apartment, Landeros said. “There were cigar boxes containing several bundles of folded currency on shelves in the closet and folded currency in the pockets of a number of shirts in the closet,” Landeros said. Perkins, 55, also is charged with delivery of marijuana and unauthorized possession of a firearm by a felon. Prosecutors rested their case Wednesday in the bench trial before Judge Robert Livas. The trial will continue Thursday. Defense attorneys expect a lab technician will testify that Bridges’ DNA was

found on a realistic-looking BB gun found in the hallway outside the apartment before Perkins takes the stand to claim he acted in self-defense. On Oct. 22, 2012, Perkins was watching the Bears game on TV with Ronnie Williams and J.B. Bryant when Bridges knocked on the door of his first floor apartment. Prosecutors said Bridges and Treyvonne D. Rideout were coming to buy two cigarettes from Perkins, who ran an illegal retail business there. When Williams answered the door, Bridges punched him, Rideout testified. Williams and Bryant testified they believe Perkins thought he was going to be robbed. Bridges was shot in the doorway, but police officers arrived to find his body near the stairs in the hall, according to testimony. Rideout testified in exchange for a reduced prison sentence on his third conviction for unauthorized possession of a firearm.

Lathan Goumas –

Tim Flaherty (right) of Joliet talks Wednesday during a public meeting with Parsons senior vice president Mark Fialkowski about a proposed high-speed rail line that will run between Chicago and St. Louis that will stop in Joliet. will be used to draft an environmental impact statement in 2015. The statement is a necessary step to obtain the additional federal funding necessary to complete the project. A couple of options are being explored for the Joliet to Chicago route, said project consultant Tony Pakeltis, a transportation planning manager with Parsons, one of the firms consulting with IDOT on the project. Under the “build” alternative, Amtrak traffic would be re-routed from the Metra Heritage Corridor to the Rock Island line. The service would offer at least five round trips daily at speeds up to 110 mph on improved lines. The project would require either improvements to existing lines or the addition of new tracks, sidings, bridges and connections, as well as a

flyover where the line crosses the Canadian National tracks. A new high-speed rail station would be added somewhere between Joliet and Chicago using either an existing Metra station or new location. Under the “no build” option, Amtrak service would stay at five round trips per day on the Heritage Corridor at speeds of up to 79 mph on a few sections of the route, though considerably slower than the rest, Pakeltis said. Ultimately the goal is to reduce trip times from 90 to 45 minutes between Chicago and Joliet, and from about six hours to 4.5 hours on the 284 miles between Chicago and St. Louis, Pakeltis said. Currently trains on the corridor are running at 110 mph only on a 15-mile stretch between Dwight and Pontiac.

Cocaine found in car hauled in semitrailer By BRIAN STANLEY CHANNAHON – Police reportedly found eight kilos of cocaine after stopping a semitrailer Monday carrying used cars. Will County Sheriff’s deputies were on patrol about 5 p.m. when they saw a freightliner semitrailer carrying six vehicles with “a blocked

and unreadable” registration plate. Deputies stopped the truck near Interstate 55 and Bluff Road and questioned the driver, sheriff’s department spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said. “After speaking to the driver, the semi was brought to the Laraway Road sheriff’s station where the vehicles were removed and a canine

search was conducted,” Hoffmeyer said. Eight kilos were found in the backseat plastic mouldings of a silver 2088 BMW 750, Hoffmeyer said. The truck driver was cited for a traffic violation, but was not charged with any criminal offenses. The incident remains an open investigation, according to police.

BOLINGBROOK – Three people were arrested Monday after allegedly bringing heroin to undercover drug agents. “They’d been the subject of an investigation that had been going on for about a month,” Metropolitan Area Narcotics Squad Director Mike Weber said Wednesday. “They would drive into Chicago to purchase heroin and then bring it back to distribute in Will and Grundy counties.” Alan R. Decker, 31, of the 400 block of North Fourth Street in Marshall; Kiley B. Murphy, 25, of the 100 block of Baybury Drive in Elwood, and Deanne N. Dingillo, 19, of the 1800 block of Albert Lane in Wilmington, were arrested on charges of delivery of

drugs, Weber said. “Murphy had been selling to several different people, one of whom turned out to be our agent,” Weber said. MANS agents seized 15 grams of heroin during the investigation, he said. Decker was driving the car Monday afternoon when the three suspects were arrested and police found more heroin in Dingillo’s bra, Weber said. Dingillo also was charged with drug possession and was released from the county jail Wednesday afternoon after posting $25,000 bond. Murphy is being held in the Will County jail on $40,000 bond. Decker, who was previously arrested for dealing heroin in 2010, is being held on $150,000, according to jail records.

Ongoing intersection issues led to ICC to reopen 2001 case • CROSSING Continued from page 4 according to a news release issued by the village on Wednesday. Ongoing issues at the intersection has led the ICC, which governs the state’s railway system, to reopen a 2001 case brought forward by Elwood. Case documents show that heavy truck traffic, coupled with the crossing’s proximity to Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, has made the crossing a threat to public safety. The national cemetery averages 25 funerals per day, with peak uses on Mondays and Fridays when the cemetery can have up to 37 processions per day. In 2013, 47 gates – the most anywhere in the state – were destroyed by trucks that ran through them, according to data provided by Union Pacific. In some cases, trucks were stuck on the tracks

because of backed-up traffic because of funeral processions and drove through the gates to avoid trains. An administrative law judge assigned by the ICC this week scheduled a hearing for March 18 in Chicago so representatives from the Illinois Department of Transportation, Union Pacific and Elwood can look at immediate and long-term solutions, said Beth Bosch, spokeswoman for the commission. Truck traffic volume over the crossing has significantly exceeded initial projections following the development of the Deer Run Intermodal Park and Union Pacific Joliet Intermodal Yard. For example, officials had estimated about 7,000 vehicles would go over the tracks per day by the year 2020, but a 2013 traffic count by Elwood shows that about 12,000 vehicles travel over the crossing each day, including 8,000 semi-truck tractor trailers.

JOLIET – High-speed rail service between Joliet and Alton, featuring Amtrak passenger trains zooming along at 110 miles per hour, will be a reality by 2017. The problem is that many passengers will want to travel 40 miles further north to Chicago or 20 miles further south to St. Louis, said Francesco Bedini Jacobini, project manager for the Illinois Department of Transportation. “Now we have to look at each end of the line, how to get into Chicago and how to get into St. Louis,” Jacobini said during a project scope meeting Wednesday at the Jacob Henry Mansion Ballroom. On the northern end, the plan now is to link up with the existing Metra Rock Island Line and continue on into Chicago, where it would veer west near 40th Street and continue north to Union Street Station. Project cost is estimated to be $1.5 billion, roughly the same amount that’s already been slated for the entire Alton to Joliet link. Wednesday’s meeting, one of four being held across the state this week, was designed to provide information and garner public information from residents and local officials along the route. Input from the meetings, as well as analysis of how the rail line will affect everything from traffic and local resources to pollution and aesthetics,

2211 Aurora Ave., Naperville (866) 516-8025



By SARA BURNETT The Associated Press CHICAGO – Trailing in money and attention in the Illinois governor’s race, Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady say they’re not worried. They’ve been here before. With the March 18 primary fast approaching, the two Republican state senators have been massively outspent and acknowledge polls showing them well behind the front runner. But they’re reassured by the fact the same thing happened in a crowded field when they each sought the nomination in 2010. When those votes were counted, Brady finished on top and Dillard in second place. Now both candidates are vowing to defy expectations again, despite serious fundraising disadvantages and having less than three weeks to election day. On Thursday they will join the two other GOP candidates – businessman Bruce Rauner and state Treasurer Dan Rutherford – for one of their last three televised debates. “Things shift,” said Dillard, who is aiming to finish on top

after losing the primary by just 193 votes four years ago. “People suddenly with a couple weeks out will go ‘Oh, now I need to start paying attention.’” Though they see vastly different paths to victory, Brady and Dillard agree the person to beat on March 18 is Rauner, a venture capitalist who has raised millions more than the rest of the field and whose campaign they believe has been weakened by recent attacks from labor unions. Rutherford also has raised more money than Dillard and Brady, but his campaign took a hit when a former employee filed a federal lawsuit accusing Rutherford of sexual harassment and making him do campaign work while on government time. Last week, Dillard called on Rutherford and Brady to drop out and make it a two-man race. Rutherford and Brady have said that’s not happening. Brady said his internal polls – which he did not release – show him as the strongest of the three lawmakers. “He’s confused,” Brady said. “This is a race between me and Mr. Rauner, not Mr. Rauner and Sen. Dillard.”

“It could have been either one of theirs, but it can’t be both, and that’s the problem.” Nick Kachiroubas Visiting assistant professor at DePaul University’s School of Public Service Political analyst Nick Kachiroubas says part of the problem for either candidacy is that both of them got in the race in the first place. Now, voters not wanting to cast ballots for Rauner are dividing their support between three lawmakers with similar political resumes. “It could have been either one of theirs, but it can’t be both, and that’s the problem,” said Kachiroubas, a visiting assistant professor at DePaul University’s School of Public Service. Dillard, who is giving up his state Senate seat to run for governor, says his campaign has gained momentum in recent weeks thanks in part to endorsements from two influential groups. On Wednesday, he picked up the backing of the

Illinois Retired Teachers Association, which represents more than 35,000 retirees across the state. He also has received the endorsement of the Illinois Education Association, the state’s largest teachers union, which gave $50,000 to his campaign and Dillard says is providing hundreds of volunteers statewide. He has begun airing radio ads in downstate Illinois and expects former Gov. Jim Edgar – a well-respected Republican who has endorsed Dillard, his one-time chief of staff – to take a more visible role in the campaign. Dillard says he has demonstrated an ability to work with Democrats and calls himself the only candidate who has enough statewide appeal to moderates and independents to defeat Gov. Pat Quinn in November. The Hinsdale lawmaker is counting on a base of support in vote-rich DuPage County, which he has represented for 21 years. But he’s also trying to lure so-called “crossover voters” who don’t typically vote in a GOP primary. He said he has been telling his Democratic friends and left-leaning groups

– including union members and a recent gathering of African American pastors and community leaders on Chicago’s west side – to pull a Republican ballot and vote for him. “I tell them, if you want to send a message to the Democratic party not to be taken for granted, find a Republican like me that you know respects you and will work with you .... and take that ballot this time,” Dillard said. Brady, who also ran unsuccessfully for the nomination in 2006, describes himself as the only candidate who is “truly both fiscally and socially conservative.” The Bloomington lawmaker is relying on the party’s conservative base and the name recognition he gained in 2010, when he won the primary and received 1.8 million votes in his failed bid to unseat Quinn. He said unlike four years ago, when his primary support came primarily from downstate, he expects to pick up votes throughout the state this time. “In order to win, a Republican candidate for governor must win the base of the Republican Party,” he said. “We have the base.”

2nd Illinois county issues gay marriage licenses By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Champaign County began issuing samesex marriage licenses Wednesday, making it the second county to do so after a federal judge ruled Cook County gay couples did not have to wait until the state’s new gay marriage law takes effect this summer. The ruling last week stemmed from a lawsuit against Cook County Clerk David Orr and applied only to Cook County, which includes Chicago. However, U.S. District Judge Sharon Johnson

Coleman also said the state’s gay marriage ban is unconstitutional, which legal experts said other counties could use as a reason to issue marriage licenses right away. Champaign County Clerk Gordy Hulten said he decided to issue the licenses after consulting with county attorneys. Champaign County, in central Illinois, is one of the state’s more populated counties and home to Urbana. “If the state statute is unconstitutional in Cook County, it’s unconstitutional in Champaign County,” Hulten said, adding that he wanted to spare taxpayers the expense of a po-

tential legal challenge. The county’s first license to a same-sex couple went to third-year law students Laura Meli, 27, and Marissa Meli, 28, both of Urbana. The women, who have a civil union, have been together for more than eight years. They said they didn’t expect Champaign County to issue them a license until June, so they drove to a Cook County office in Chicago last week after the judge’s ruling. But Laura Meli said it was bittersweet because they wanted the license issued where they live and have worked. After hearing the news about

Champaign County, they headed over the local clerk’s office. “It means everything,” Laura Meli said of the new license. The couple, set to graduate from the College of Law at the University of Illinois, say they’ll let the Cook-issued license expire and soon have a local judge officiate their marriage in Champaign County. Advocates celebrated the county’s decision. “It is simply time for the other county clerks to follow suit,” Bernard Cherkasov, CEO of Equality Illinois, said in a statement. “ ... Gay and lesbian couples are eager and ready to take the step that not only

grants them and their family the legal benefits and rights of marriage but also bestows society’s recognition that their love is equal.” However, officials in a number of other counties have said they’ll wait until June 1. More than half a dozen counties in central Illinois – Sangamon, Logan, Cass, Morgan, Macoupin, Montgomery and Christian – said they’d comply with the new law as written, the (Springfield) State Journal-Register reported. “We’re just going to follow the law,” Sangamon County Clerk Joe Aiello told the newspaper.

Brady, Dillard still confident in race



Arizona governor vetoes religious freedom bill

The Herald-News / • Thursday, February 27, 2014


PHOENIX – Gov. Jan Brewer on Wednesday vetoed a Republican bill that set off a national debate over gay rights, religion and discrimination and subjected Arizona to blistering criticism from major corporations and political leaders from both parties. Her decision defused a national furor over gay rights and religious freedom. “My agenda is to sign into law legislation that advances Arizona,” Brewer said at a news conference. “I call them like I seem them despite the tears or the boos from the crowd.” The bill backed by Republicans in the legislature was designed to give added protection from lawsuits to people who assert their religious beliefs in refusing service to gays. But opponents called it an open attack on gays that invited discrimination. Prominent Phoenix business groups said it would be another black eye for the state that saw a national backlash over its 2010 immigration-crackdown law, SB1070, and warned that businesses looking to expand into the state may not do so if bill became law.

Justice Dept. wants NSA records kept longer WASHINGTON – The Justice Department is asking a secret federal court to let the government keep telephone records collected by the National Security Agency beyond a five-year limit, arguing that it has an obligation to retain evidence in lawsuits it is facing. Data collected under the NSA’s phone records programs are supposed to be destroyed within five years, but lawyers for the government are asking that the records be preserved longer for use as potential evidence in pending lawsuits. The Justice Department says it has a legal obligation to identify, locate and maintain information that may be used as evidence in those suits that might otherwise be destroyed. The American Civil Liberties Union, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and the First Unitarian Church of Los

Angeles are among those suing to have the phone records program declared unconstitutional. “This is just a distraction,” ACLU Deputy Legal Director Jameel Jaffer said in a written statement. “We don’t have any objection to the government deleting these records. While they’re at it, they should delete the whole database.”

U.S. general: Grim Afghan future if no security pact BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan – Depicting a grim future for Afghanistan without U.S. help, the top U.S. military officer said Wednesday that Afghanistan’s refusal to sign a security agreement with the United States may make the fight more difficult this year, embolden the enemy and prompt some Afghan security forces to cooperate with the Taliban to “hedge their bets.” Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, spent the day with his commanders and troops in Afghanistan working to manage the after-effects of President Barack Obama’s order Tuesday to begin actively planning for a total withdrawal of U.S. troops by the end of the year. In back-to-back meetings, he urged them to focus on the considerable military work they have to do and not worry about next year.

NASA announces mother lode of new planets: 715 WASHINGTON – Our galaxy is looking far more crowded. NASA has confirmed a bonanza of 715 newly discovered planets outside our solar system. Scientists using the planet-hunting Kepler telescope have nearly doubled the number of planets discovered in the galaxy. The figure is now about 1,700. Twenty years ago, astronomers had not found any planets circling stars other than our sun. Astronomers used a new confirmation technique to come up with the largest batch of planets announced at one time. NASA made the announcement Wednesday.

NEW YORK – The stock market is struggling to take it to the next level. For a third straight day the Standard & Poor’s 500 index traded above its record close but fell back to end below it. An early move higher Wednesday was led by retailers and home builders, but the gains mostly petered out in the afternoon. By the closing bell the index was up just a fraction of a point. After rebounding from losses early in the year, when investors were concerned about the outlook for growth in emerging markets and the U.S., the stock market now appears to be at a crossroads. While investors seem comfortable attributing the recent weakness in economic reports to the unusually cold weather, they also appear reluctant to push stocks higher before they see more evidence of growth. “This is a market that has been trying to decipher how much of the negative news is weather-based, against concerns that we have moved into a soft patch,” said Quincy Krosby, a market strategist at Prudential Financial. The S&P 500 edged up four-hundredths of a point to close at 1,845.16, three points short of its record high close of 1,848.38 set Jan. 15. The index climbed as high as 1,852.65. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 18.75, or 0.1 percent, to 16,198.41. The Nasdaq composite rose 4.48 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,292.06. Home builder stocks rose sharply after the government reported that U.S. sales of new homes jumped in January at the fastest pace in more than five years. That’s a hopeful sign after a slowdown in the housing market last

year caused by higher interest rates. PulteGroup rose 57 cents, or 2.8 percent, to $21.25 and Lennar rose $1.52, or 3.6 percent, to $43.78. Retailers rose after several encouraging earnings reports. Lowe’s climbed $2.61, or 5.4 percent, to $50.72. The company’s net income rose 6 percent in the most recent quarter as the home-improvement retailer continued to benefit from a recovery in the housing market. The company also announced a new $5 billion stock repurchase program. Abercrombie & Fitch jumped $4.05, or 11.3 percent, to $40.04 after posting earnings that exceeded the expectations of Wall Street analysts. The retailer also initiated a $150 million accelerated share buyback program. “We’ve dialed estimates down in that space, simply because of worries about the effects of the weather,” said Darrell Cronk, regional chief investment officer for Wells Fargo Private Bank. “A lot of people were walking in today expecting some of those retail companies to have much softer results.” Investor may get a catalyst to push stocks higher on Thursday when Janet Yellen, the new head of the Federal Reserve, testifies in front of the Senate’s Banking Committee. Stocks jumped Feb. 11 when Yellen spoke to Congress, and said that she would continue the central bank’s market-friendly, low-interest rate policies. The comments were her first in public since taking over for Ben Bernanke at the Fed. Her appearance in the Senate was delayed because of a winter storm. Bond prices rose. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.66 percent from 2.70 percent.

Statistics of heterosexuals THE VILLAGE IDIOT Jim Mullen Experts estimate the number of homosexuals in the population is somewhere between 2 percent and 10 percent. Since many people are reluctant to tell their sexual preferences, it is hard to make an accurate assessment. Whichever number is true, it would mean that: Ninety percent of the people convicted of felonies in this country are heterosexuals. Ninety percent of all theft is committed by heterosexuals. Ninety percent of all wife-beating is done by heterosexual men. Ninety percent of the ex-girlfriends murdered each year are killed by heterosexual men. American public schools, with around 90 percent heterosexual teachers, are consistently rated among the worst in the industrialized world. Ninety percent of our rising health care costs are due to the care of heterosexuals dying of lung cancer, liver failure and heart disease, most of which have been self-inflicted by smoking, drinking and overeating. Over 90 percent of ugly clothing is bought by heterosexual men. Over 90 percent of the problems on all soap operas are caused by heterosexual characters. Over 90 percent of all annoying telemarketers are heterosexual. The heterosexual agenda, which advocates that all American men spend every waking moment on a sofa watching sporting events while drinking tasteless American beer, is making our nation weak and about to collapse from within like ancient Rome.

Proposed rule on grain makes little sense A proposed federal rule that would make it difficult for ethanol producers, breweries and others to sell their spent grains to animal feeders has us scratching our heads. According to the rule, providers of secondhand grain would be subject to enhanced food safety requirements under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The proposed rules come as the result of the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2011, which calls on the FDA to come up with food safety standards for animal feed. One rule would require facilities that distribute animal feed to establish food safety plans similar to those of facilities that process human food. It would require facilities that handle food for animals to have a written food safety plan, prevention controls for likely hazards, a monitoring process and procedures to address any

contamination. Facilities also would have to keep all paperwork associated with its food safety plan on hand. This would make it more difficult for distillers to sell – or give – their spent grain to cattle feeders. Livestock feeders often add spent grains from ethanol producers and other distillers to their overall grain rations to fortify protein content. A number of industry experts say the proposed rule would do nothing but add unnecessary paperwork and expenses to their respective processes. If the rule goes into effect, distillers ranging from small local breweries to large ethanol or alcohol producers would likely start looking for other ways to dispose of their grain, and livestock feeders would be left searching for another food source. They would likely also face increased costs. Like everyone else, we want a safe

food supply. We also understand that some regulation is necessary to accomplish that goal. However, there’s little reason we know of to hamstring distillers and cattle feeders. The secondhand grain exchange has been a feature of cattle processing for years, and no one has tracked any reported illnesses to the use of spent grain. In fact, many breweries and distillers already have significant safety procedures in place that come as part of the distilling process. The ethanol production process, for example, inherently eliminates contaminants in the corn. We support strong, smart regulations where they’re needed. However, we have yet to hear anyone say that this rule – as applied to the distillers – would do anything other than cause unintended consequences.

filed a federal lawsuit against Rutherford and his chief of staff Kyle Ham, accusing Rutherford of repeated sexual harassment and forcing him to do political work on state time. The internal investigation – which reportedly involved interviewing treasurer’s office employees – now is complete, but Rutherford refuses to make it public, saying his attorney advised him not to release it because of pending litigation. Pending litigation also happens to be one of the exemptions in the state’s sunshine law. Rutherford insists he hasn’t read the results and has no idea what they say. What he’s succeeded in doing is putting his own interests before those of Illinois taxpayers. The investigation cost $250 an hour, with a final cost cap of $19,999. Any voters who now question whether Rutherford is committed to being an accountable and transparent public servant, especially when the chips are down, certainly are correct to do so.

More than 90 percent of Congress is heterosexual. Almost 100 percent of out-of-wedlock teen pregnancies are caused by heterosexuals.

Nearly 100 percent of divorces are between heterosexuals. Around 95 percent of all sexual harassment complaints are against heterosexuals. Over 95 percent of all military courts-martial are of heterosexuals. Ninety percent of all drug users are heterosexuals. Ninety percent of all gang members are heterosexuals. Ninety percent of all traffic accidents are caused by heterosexuals. Ninety percent of all violence against women is done by heterosexuals. Vladimir Putin, Bashar al-Assad, Fidel Castro and Kim Jong-Un are all heterosexuals, as were “Papa Doc” Duvalier, Idi Amin, Joseph

Stalin and Adolf Hitler. Ninety percent of welfare and Medicare fraud is perpetrated by heterosexuals. Ninety percent of our prison cells are filled with heterosexuals, costing us billions of taxpayer dollars a year. Ninety percent of income-tax cheating is done by heterosexuals, costing us billions of dollars a year. Ninety percent of the “too big to fail” banks that cost billions of dollars to bail out were run by heterosexuals. Which leaves only one question: Should we let heterosexuals marry, adopt children, lead the Boy Scouts, run for office or play in the NFL?

Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford’s refusal to release the results of a taxpayer-funded investigation into allegations against him – results he previously promised to release – casts doubt on his ability to handle the pressure and expectations that come with being governor. Until recently, Rutherford was considered the No. 2 Republican candidate for governor in a four-man field. However, his handling of a still-unfolding political crisis involving accusations of political coercion and sexual harassment against him shows he is not ready for primetime. Rutherford’s first misstep was a Jan. 31 news conference during which he denied unspecified allegations by an unspecified person and refused to provide further details. He pledged to order an internal investigation, conducted at taxpayers’ expense, to get to the bottom of the allegations and vowed to release the results, which he said would clear his name. A few days later, the accuser, former Rutherford aide Edmund Michalowski,

Joliet Catholic fall to St. Pat’s on senior night By ROB OESTERLE JOLIET – On a night to celebrate the seniors that have contributed to the program, the Joliet Catholic Academy boys basketball team did just that Wednesday night, starting all four seniors. The quartet of Jacob McLurkin, Jimmy Elias, Dominic Bertino and Joe McNulty played the entire first quarter and also got significant minutes in the second half of a 50-29 East Suburban Catholic Conference loss to St. Patrick. It was quite a departure from the norm for JCA coach Joe Gura, who normally sends four sophomores to the floor to start a game. “Tonight was all about the seniors,” he said. “And they did a very nice job while they were in there. What hurt was that our normal starters, after sitting the first quarter, weren’t ready to go when they got in there.

“Give St. Pat’s credit, though. They are a very good team.” The Shamrocks came out firing, as Adrian Pierzchanowski connected on his first two 3-point attempts en route to a game-high 18 points. All told, St. Patrick went 10-of-22 from 3-point range. “I would certainly take that kind of shooting on any given night,” Gura said. “They played very well.” St. Pat’s led 15-6 at the end of the first quarter and extended the lead to 30-12 at halftime. By the start of the fourth quarter, it was 40-14. JCA (8-18, 0-7) got hot in the fourth, outscoring St. Pat’s 15-10. Jimmy Elias poured in six points in the final 1:07 to get the crowd on its feet. Elias, Keegan Tyrell and Colton Kowalski each scored six to lead the Hilltoppers, while Bertino had a teamhigh five rebounds. Drake Fellows had four points and four boards.

Harold Davis opened the scoring for JCA in the fourth with a 3-pointer, then Fellows scored underneath. With St. Pat’s owning a 45-21 lead, Elias scored with 1:07 left before the Shamrocks’ Scottie Triptow hit a 3-pointer. Elias scored again with 30 seconds left and Tyrell followed with a steal and layup. Duilio Paccagnani hit a pair of free throws for St. Pat’s before Elias closed the scoring with another basket. “I was very proud of our seniors,” Gura said. “Especially some of the guys who haven’t gotten many minutes this season. The effort is always there, even if the execution isn’t. But, you can coach and teach execution. You can’t teach effort. “We know it’s a process. We have won eight this year, and our sophomore team has won 16. We will keep working hard through the end of the season and see what happens in the regional.”

Boys Basketball Class 1A Gardner-South Wilmington Regional: On Wednesday night, Gardner-South Wilmington dropped an 83-46 decision to top-seeded St. Anne. Dwight upended Grant Park, 58-47, on Tuesday behind 17 points from Dan Travers.

Brad Karp scored seven of his game-high 25 points during the Cougars’ opening 16-0 run. St. Xavier (27-4) took its largest lead of the opening half, 32-15, on a Michael Simpson free throw at the 6:56 mark. USF (15-15) used a 10-2 run to trim the deficit to single digits, 34-25, with 3:17 to go in the period, but the Cougars closed out the half with an 8-0 spurt to take a 42-25 lead at the intermission. Saint Xavier outscored USF, 16-11, during the first five minutes of the second stanza to increase its advantage to 22 points (58-36).

Area squads face tough challenges at state

The Herald-News / • Thursday, February 27, 2014


Lincoln-Way Central, Plainfield Central, Peotone are in the field to compete Saturday in Bloomington By CURT HERRON Anyone who is familiar with Lincoln-Way Central’s wrestling program throughout the years does not need to have this explained to them. But for those who don’t know, here’s the deal. The Knights not only don’t back down from a challenge, they tackle it head on. Whether it’s with Jason DePolo and company in the corner or Mark Ruettiger, his coach when he competed there, the Knights have been used to dealing with the state’s best. That’s why Central welcomes the challenge of meeting up with nationally-ranked Marist at 9 a.m. Saturday in the quarterfinals of the IHSA Class 3A dual team tournament in Bloomington. The Knights placed third in the first state trip in 2008 and then took fourth place a year ago. But earning another trophy figures to be a challenge against a Redhawk squad that’s making their first appearance since 1997. Brendan Heffernan’s Marist team is ranked 19th in the nation and is behind only the favorite in Class 3A, Oak Park-River Forest, which is ranked second in the nation. “We have fared pretty well being the underdogs so far this season,” DePolo said. “We were able to pull it off at the regional against favorite Lockport and we were able to pull if off at the team sectional against favorite Edwardsville. “This is just a great team to be around. We have great kids who are all close friends and they really feed off each others’ energy. We know who Marist is. They’re a great team with great coaches top to bottom. For us to get back to Bloomington was a goal in itself, but I know our boys will battle and leave it all on the mat Saturday morning.”

Curt Herron –

Plainfield Central’s wrestling team advanced to the Class 3A dual team state tournament. The Wildcats face Marmion at 9 a.m. Saturday. The Knights demonstrated that quality Tuesday in the Class 3A Mahomet-Seymour Sectional in what was expected to be a tight battle against Edwardsville. They jumped out to a 27-0 lead and claimed a 55-11 win. Marist advanced after

a 35-28 victory over Lyons Township in its own sectional. The winner of Saturday’s dual advances to a 2 p.m. state semifinal against Marmion or Plainfield Central, who also meet at 9 a.m. The finals are set for 6 p.m. Just as Lincoln-Way Cen-

tral should put up a good fight against a highly-regarded foe, Plainfield Central will also give it all it has against Marmion, who is ranked 28th nationally. The Cadets, who are coached by former Providence standouts Ryan Cumbee and Donny Reynolds, moved on to state for the second straight year after a 44-18 sectional win over Mount Carmel at Marist. The Cadets, who feature four-time state champion Johnny Jimenez, beat the Knights in the semifinals a year ago to reach the finals, where they lost 38-17 to Carl Sandburg. Plainfield Central earned its first state trip since 2010 when it used seven straight wins to help it rally for a 3527 victory over Moline in the Class 3A LaSalle-Peru Sectional. Jim Kappas, who also coached the other state squad,

didn’t see his team’s win Tuesday since he and his wife were expecting their first child. He became a father early Wednesday morning. Another area squad will be making history when it competes in the dual team finals for the initial time in the Class 1A competition. Peotone, which beat Walther Christian 49-21 in the Coal City Sectional, meets a small school staple, PORTA, in an 11 a.m. quarterfinal at U.S. Cellular Coliseum. Jeff Hill’s Bluejays, who placed fourth a year ago, earned their 10th state trip in 13 years after defeating host Gibson City-Melvin-Sibley, 41-25, in the sectional. Greg Goberville’s Blue Devils hope to advance to a 2 p.m. semifinal against either LeRoy or Sherrard. If they can accomplish that, they’ll become the first Peotone boys team to ever earn a state trophy.

JCA graduate named MVP, wins 3-point contest

Dick Goss won the 3-point shooting contest. Eight shooters competed in the first round, three finalists in the second round. “It was all a fun experience,” she said. “It was a day where I was making shots. It was one game where they all went in.” Quigley scored 10 and 12 points, respectively, in the two rounds of 3-point shooting where 15 shots are taken, five from each wing and five from the top of the key. In her sixth season playing overseas, and first in Poland, Quigley is averaging 15.1 points in the Polish League and 12.6 points in the more competitive Euroleague, which includes top teams from throughout Europe. Wisla Can-Pack, based in Krakow, is 21-2 in Poland and 6-5 in the Euroleague, where the team is jockeying for a playoff position. Even after spending an entire season with the WNBA’s Chicago Sky in 2013,

Quigley recently was named the MVP of the Polish AllStar Game. and averaging 3.9 points while appearing in every game, Quigley always intended to continue her overseas experience this season. She has played in Turkey, Hungary and Slovakia. She has obtained her Hungarian citizenship. Why try Poland?

“I just had the opportunity to come over here,” she said. “My agent told me about it. I knew the coach here from some of my previous basketball in Europe, and this was a good fit. “It’s been great to play in Krakow. The town has about 900,000, so it’s a big city and has a lot to offer. It feels familiar, too, because just about everyone here speaks English.” Of course, women’s basketball does have to take a back seat – to soccer. “It’s known for soccer here,” Quigley said. “That’s what fans really go wild for. “If we fill up our arena, we have maybe 1,000 people. It’s cool that the fans do all these European chants. When we’re playing a bigger game, it goes back and forth.” Quigley was a high school All-American at Joliet Catholic, where she averaged more than 28 points as a senior, and also starred in softball and on the Angels’ state championship volleyball team. She is among a select few to have scored more than 2,000 points in her DePaul

career, averaging 19.4 as a senior and being named All-Big East second team and a Big East Academic All-Star. Her professional career includes not only her six seasons overseas, but also stints with various WNBA teams. However, last season with the Sky marked her first full WNBA season. She wants to return to the Sky and play before relatives and friends this year. “The Sky was positive about me returning when I talked with them after last year and I hope to be in camp with them again,” she said. “Camp starts April 25. It’s moved up a couple of weeks because the World Championships are later this year, and many of the players play in that.” Quigley is 27. Her body has been through the grinder with all the high-level basketball on her résumé. But she loves what she is doing and intends to keep at it for as long as her health is good. Her performance in Poland this season, highlighted by the Polish All-Star Game, suggests there is plenty left in the tank.

When Allie Quigley, a shooting guard for Wisla Can-Pack of the Polish women’s professional basketball league, was en route to the Polish All-Star Game this month, she did not know what to expect. “I have been involved in all-star games before, and some of them weren’t that serious,” she said. Fortunately, this one was, exactly as she would have ordered. The ultimate competitor, Quigley rose to the occasion. All the 2004 Joliet Catholic graduate did was score 22 points on 10-of-17 shooting to lead the Foreign All-Stars to a 70-64 victory over the Polish National Team. For good measure, she contributed four rebounds, three steals, an assist and a blocked shot. All of that merited the game’s Most Valuable Player award. But that wasn’t all.

Gibson leads Bulls in win over Warriors

By ANDREW SELIGMAN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Taj Gibson scored 21 points, Carlos Boozer added 15 points and 13 rebounds, and the Bulls used a big third-quarter run to win for the seventh time in eight games, pounding the Golden State Warriors, 103-83, Wednesday night. Jimmy Butler scored 16 points after missing two games with bruised ribs,

Mike Dunleavy Jr. added 15, and Joakim Noah grabbed 17 rebounds for the Bulls. They also dominated on the glass 56-41, forced 16 turnovers and held All-Star Stephen Curry in check while bringing Golden State’s fourgame win streak to an emphatic end. Jordan Crawford scored 16 points, but it was a rough night for the Warriors even though David Lee returned to the rotation.

left, and in a flash, the Bulls were on their way. Kirk Hinrich converted a three-point play, igniting a 14-2 run that sealed this one for the Bulls. Butler deflected a pass by Lee, leading to a layup for Boozer, and scored on a putback that made it 66-51 with 5:52 remaining. After Dunleavy hit a free throw, Boozer capped the run with three straight baskets – a 15-footer, a short jumper and a 13-foot bank shot – that bumped the

Bulls lead to 73-53 with 3:20 to go in the quarter. Butler was active early, scoring 13 points to help the Bulls build a 56-45 halftime lead. Dunleavy was on target again with 11 points in the half after scoring 22 in Tuesday’s win at Atlanta. He hit two 3-pointers, the second bouncing straight up off the rim and into the net with 27 seconds left in the second quarter to make it 54-45.



He came off the bench to score 11 points in 20 minutes after being hospitalized with a stomach flu and missing two games. But Curry tied a season low with five points on 2-of-10 shooting and the Warriors never found a rhythm. They trailed by 11 at the half and were within eight in the third quarter when things got out of hand. Dunleavy blocked Andre Iguodala’s layup with 7:33

Hawks resume play in New York By MARK POTASH The Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup after the 2010 Olympic Games, but it wasn’t because of anything they did right after the break. In fact, the Hawks struggled as much as any Stanley Cup-contending team in the month after the Games. They entered the break with 87 points (41-15-5), second most in the Western Conference and third most in the NHL. But they lost their post-Olympic opener to the lowly New York Islanders (58 points, fourth fewest in the NHL), were 3-3 post-Olympics when they lost defenseman Brian Campbell after the Alex Ovechkin hit and ended up 6-7-2 in March. The Hawks had six Olympians in 2010. This year they have 10 – only three of whom have had more than

one practice with their teammates since the Olympics. The Hawks have not practiced as a full team in nearly three weeks. “Yeah, but we’ve played together,” veteran defenseman Brent Seabrook said. “The majority of this team has been together for 2½, three years now. The comfortability of knowing guys, hopefully we’ll jell together.” Experience seems to make a difference. The Hawks were a younger team in 2010. Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane were 21. Seabrook was 24. Niklas Hjalmarsson was 22. Duncan Keith was 26. It probably is not a coincidence that the veteran-laden Red Wings had the best

record in the NHL (12-2-1) in the month after the 2010 Olympic break. Four years later, the Hawks’ core is much more experienced than it was in 2010. And as Seabrook pointed out, they have shown that experience had made a difference. “We’ve sort of all grown together as a group,” Seabrook said, “and it goes back to winning our first Cup and being prepared to play the next season – we weren’t very good when we first came back and this year we were a lot better. “All those things that surround the game take your focus a little bit and all the guys have done a good job of learning from mistakes we’ve made in the past and focused on being better this time. So coming out of this Olympics, it’ll definitely be a lot easier transition coming back to playing here.”

They would be humbled Joliet Catholic Academy recognizes Chignoli family’s faith legacy By DENISE M. BARAN–UNLAND Family. Food. Faith. This is how Lori Chignoli Cora of Shorewood, eighth of nine siblings, summed up her parents’ values. Driven by a Catholic faith, unspoken but clearly expressed in their behavior, Eva and Bob Chignoli lived for family and tied those bonds around the dinner table. On March 8, Joliet Catholic Academy will present the Chignoli family with the JCA Recognition Award at its 29th Jubilate in honor of the family’s late patriarch and matriarch, Eva and Bob Chignoli. Chris Voss, director of special events for the school, said through the years, the Chignoli family has dedicated many volunteer hours to the school. In a span of 30 years and despite the challenges of raising a large family on a single income, Eva and Bob sent all nine children to St. John the Baptist School in Joliet, where Eva had attended school. Eight of the nine young Chignolis also attended area Catholic high schools, Cora said, despite the fact that they lived within a couple blocks of Joliet Central High School, that Eva never drove a car and that Bob worked long hours. Somehow, Cora said, they made it work. “I remember taking my mom to the hospital to deliver my brother [Bill Chignoli of Joliet] that’s 20 years younger than me,” said Lou Chignoli of Shorewood. Cora echoed the sentiments of Chignoli and her sister, Carol McCabe of Joliet (siblings two and one), when she said that her parents, if they were still alive, would be surprised and humbled at the honor. “They’d not understand

I can’t remember my parents ever yelling. We lived simply and just went from day to day.” In the family’s earlier years, McCabe said, Bob was a funeral director; Chignoli Funeral Home was the lower level of the family home on Union Street. Later, Bob worked long hours as a car salesman at Vidmar Buick in Joliet. At 58, he began Chignoli Auto Sales in Joliet, where nine family members still work today, 40 years later. “We used to say that he changed occupations as the family grew,” McCabe said. “He had that winning personality, very likeable and

good-hearted. He’d help anyone if he could.” Eva, a former farm girl, always classy and petite, despite the nine children, McCabe said, was patient, gracious, content to “do without” and ascetic, one that abstained from full meals during Lent, and served tuna casserole and grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup on Lenten Fridays to her family. “My mom always abided by all the rules,” McCabe said. A family of 11 generates plenty of housework and Eva accomplished it with wringer washers, hanging laundry on clotheslines and keeping a coal furnace stoked, Cora said. Eva sat twice each day, for the 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. news. Yet Eva still found time to volunteer at both the former Joliet Catholic

Cora recalled how the kids sat around the dining room table at night with their homework and babysitting to pay for extras. At Christmastime, McCabe said, a “big fresh tree” graced the large bay window. “My dad would be so excited,” McCabe said, “he would get us all up at three in the morning to open gifts.” After Sunday Mass at St. Anthony Parish in Joliet (Bob’s church), Bob would spend the rest of the day preparing large Italian meals: stewed chicken, polenta, risotto, Cora said. Intended to give Eva a break from cooking (“My mom knew how to make nine different meals from hamburger,” Chignoli said) those dinners became all-day affairs that the

entire family was expected to attend – or at least telephone – once they were grown and had their own children. “He’d even invite some of the Carmelite priests to have dinner with us,” Chignoli said. “That’s what we did on Sundays, eat and spend time with each other.” Vacations, Chignoli said, were almost non-existent, unless they packed everyone up in the vehicle for a very occasional weekend in a Wisconsin cabin. Bob and Eva never took a trip as a couple. Any money that flowed through the household went to provide for the children. “Because of their upbringing,” Chignoli said, “we all managed to stay out of trouble. None of us ever had problems in school. They taught us to do things the right way.”

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

It is easy to be distracted


Randy K. Milholland, the creator of several webcomics, said, “Typos are very important to all written form. It gives the reader something to look for so he isn’t distracted by the total lack of content in your writing.” How depressing! But last year I bought a cartoon anthology and was surprised to find two typos. Even if they snuck into the newspapers, why didn’t the cartoonist correct them before including them in his book? At the bridge table, it is easy to be distracted on defense when one knows that partner has made a mistake. One petulantly plays the card nearest one’s thumb instead of asking oneself if the contract is still beatable. In this deal, South was in four spades. West led the club queen and East won with his ace, dropping South’s king. What happened next? At trick two, East shifted to his singleton heart jack. Yes, West should have overtaken with his queen, cashed the heart ace, and given his partner a heart ruff to defeat the contract. But thinking that East would have a second heart, West signaled with his 10. Ticked off, East now led a trump. Gratefully, South drew trumps and discarded his last three hearts on dummy’s diamonds, which fell into his lap after one finesse. East immediately berated West. But East should have paused to ask himself if there was anything he could have done. Then he would have noticed that leading a diamond at trick three would have defeated the contract, cutting declarer off from the dummy before he has drawn trumps. Keep your eye on the cards.

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips privacy I have had while living on my own. However, because of the economy, I may need to rent out my extra room to make ends meet. I have gotten used to a clothing-optional lifestyle and spend most of my time outdoors sunning, swimming and doing yard work in the buff. I also enjoy being indoors lounging, doing chores and sleeping the same way. Would it be OK for me to advertise for someone who also enjoys this? Can I continue my lifestyle “au naturel” or must I go back to covering? – Nevada Nude Dude Dear Nude Dude: While practically anything goes in the want ads and on the Internet, your best bet would be to Google “nudists (or naturists) in Nevada.” When you do, you will find contact information for nudist resorts and clubs, and your chances of finding a renter who won’t be shocked or offended will be better.

Dear Abby: My husband and I love each other and have three beautiful children, but we struggle in our marriage because of the stress of daily life. Lack of money has taken a toll. Sometimes we both work two jobs. Other times we find ourselves faced with difficult choices – like whether to buy groceries, or pay the electric bill or the mortgage. (We often can’t do all three.) Can you share any resources for those of us who do not have the money or the insurance coverage to pay for counseling? – Holding On In Arkansas Dear Holding On: Many thousands of families are in the same situation – and it is stressful for marriages and relationships. Because you are unable to afford a private therapist, contact your county department of mental health and ask what services are available for people with limited resources. The psychology department at your nearest college or university may be able to help, too. • Write Dear Abby at www.

Deep breathing effective way to handle stress Dear Doctor K: How does deep breathing help to control stress? Dear Reader: When we’re under stress, our muscles tighten, our heart beats faster, our blood pressure rises and our breathing quickens. The relaxation response is the opposite of the stress response; it puts the brakes on the biological changes that put us into overdrive. And it turns out we can elicit the relaxation response at will – by taking deep breaths. The act of breathing engages the diaphragm and the muscles that hold the ribs together. Instructions from your brain to these muscles cause you to breathe in and out. Most of the time, of course, you’re not thinking about breathing: It just happens. But it is your brain that is controlling it. And you can consciously control it, as well. Try this: First, exhale. Then stop breathing for 10 seconds, and then take in a deep breath. You felt your lungs get smaller, and then get bigger, right? How did your brain do that? When you exhaled, two things happened. The first involved your diaphragm, the strong sheet of muscle that divides the

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff chest from the abdomen. As you breathe out, the diaphragm relaxes. This causes it to rise upward, pressing on the bottom of the lungs and forcing air out of them. Then, when you took a deep breath in, the diaphragm contracted. That caused it to drop downward, pulling the bottom of your lungs down with it. Since the top of the lungs stayed put, the result was that the lungs expanded, filling with air. (I’ve put an illustration of what happens as you breathe on my website, Shallow breathing hobbles the diaphragm’s range of motion. The lowest portion of your lungs don’t get their full share of oxygenated air. That can make you feel short of breath and anxious. Deep abdominal breathing, in contrast, encourages a full exchange of incoming oxygen for outgoing carbon dioxide. This type of breathing slows the heartbeat and can lower or stabilize blood pressure.

It may seem like a strange thing to say about something we’ve been doing since birth. But breathing – deep breathing – doesn’t come naturally to most of us. We must practice it. Start by finding a comfortable, quiet place to sit or lie down. First, take a normal breath. It may feel tense and constricted. Now try taking a slow, deep breath. The air coming in through your nose should move downward into your lower belly. Let your abdomen expand fully. Now breathe out through your mouth or nose. Deep breathing makes you feel relaxed. Practice deep breathing for several minutes. Put one hand on your abdomen, just below your belly button. Feel your hand rise each time you inhale and fall each time you exhale. You may be skeptical that deep breathing can counteract stress, but it does. Or, to be more precise, it counters the increased heart rate and blood pressure that stress causes. Try it – it really works.

Dr. Wallace: I’m 17 and had been dating Brian for over a year. We really cared for (loved?) each other and enjoyed being together. Four months ago, both of us were saddened when we found out his parents were moving to California because Brian’s father was offered a better-paying job. Brian and I agreed that we should date others because we might never see each other again. A month after Brian left, I met Phil at a friend’s beach party. It didn’t take long before we were dating regularly. Phil is 19 and taking classes at the University of Florida while working part-time in the family insurance business. Last night, I got the shock of my life. I was busy working on my geometry when suddenly I heard a “tap, tap, tap” on my bedroom window, and who do I see peeking in – Brian. We sat out on our front porch and talked for two hours. He told me that he missed me terribly and wanted us to start dating each other again. His family had moved back to Miami because his father did not like his new job. When I told him that I was steadily dating Phil, he looked sad and said that he would wait for me. If I weren’t dating Phil, I’d jump at the chance to date Brian again. I don’t know what I should do. Help! – Karla, Miami, Fla. Dear Karla: You sound clear about your feelings; you simply have to trust them. Tell Phil that an old flame has moved back to town, but assure him he’s still your boyfriend.

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace This gets the matter out in the open, which is always better than being secretive. Then contact Brian and let him know you’re flattered that he wants to wait for you, but you don’t want him to entertain false hopes. If he insists on waiting, encourage him to date other girls while he does so, because the wait could be a long one. Dear Teens: Cheating in classes is on the rise and, according to a survey by Who’s Who Among American High School Students, it’s the honor students who are leading the way! A total of 3,123 honor students participated in the survey – and a shocking 80 percent of them admitted they got to the top of their class the easy way, by cheating. And those students said they weren’t caught because of lax enforcement by teachers. The cheaters didn’t have any guilt feelings; most had adopted the attitude, “I cheat because everyone else is cheating.” Sadly, many parents also don’t feel that cheating is such a big deal. Many of them have been cheating on their income tax forms for years. Unfortunately, this cheating habit is passed on to their children. • Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers.

Dear Abby: Should I or shouldn’t I tell my boss that more than a few people have come to me asking if he is fooling around with a young woman here in the office? He is married; she is not. They spend a lot of time together “just visiting,” laughing and obviously flirting. They have also been seen coming and going together, having lunch together every day, etc. My reaction is that whether they are or aren’t, it isn’t my business. A little voice keeps telling me that, as his personal secretary, he may want to be made aware that people are talking about him behind his back, and I do feel protective and a sense of loyalty to him. Understand that I do not want to discuss it with him, have verification, denial or anything else – only to give him the information. – Vacillating In Ohio Dear Vacillating: If there is anything going on in your employer’s business that distracts from the work his employees are doing, he should be made aware.

“Visitors” is a transfixing new movie from filmmaker Godfrey Reggio.

‘Visitors’: For viewers, a cinematic trance By ANN HORNADAY The Washington Post “Visitors,” the transfixing new movie from filmmaker Godfrey Reggio, opens with an utterly astonishing image, one so powerful that it feels uncharitable to reveal what it is. The rest of the movie continues apace, with 73 more shots – a handful in the feature-film world – unspooling with contemplative slowness, accompanied by an exquisite musical score by Philip Glass. How can a critic describe in words a film with no words? To paraphrase Steven Soderbergh when he presented “Visitors” at its triumphant world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last fall: I not only can’t, but I’ll try. Filmgoers might be familiar with Reggio’s name from his previous three films – “Koyaanisqatsi,” “Powaqqatsi” and “Naqoyqatsi” – which coined a cinematic language all their own, combining a cascade of images, stream-of-consciousness editing, time-lapse photography and the ever-present Glass score, an evocative ostinato of moody foreboding. With so many of Reggio’s techniques having been appropriated by the mainstream, the 73-year-old filmmaker has deconstructed his own grammar, filming “Visitors” not in the rapid-fire synaptic rhythms but as a series of stately black-and-white portraits of Earth’s inhabitants, their natural and built environments, and even a world far, far away.

The images – human, organic, architectural – possess both sculptural solidity and fleeting evanescence, with Reggio’s camera investing them with timeless meaning (in a sequence filmed at a cemetery, crypts rise out of the earth with the grace of ancient Greek temples). Even when they capture things in motion, they sit still, in an elegant faceoff between the two fundaments of filmic structure, montage and mise-en-scene. But these slow-moving, near-static shots also possess tantalizing ambiguity, throwing viewers back on themselves with gradually dawning questions rather than pat interpretations. The wide-open mouth of a man could be a grimace or a yawn or a cry or a laugh; a group of people sitting impassively, then erupting in emotion, could be watching a sporting event or a film or a video game; a crowd walking in slow motion can be seen moving either with the mechanistic detachment of so many assembly-line pistons or the graceful, tuned-in flow of a school of fish. It’s all of the above, it’s none of the above – it’s really all up to you. As Reggio and editor and associate director Jon Kane intersperse shots of their human subjects with vistas of abandoned amusement parks, primordial swamps, empty buildings and a desolate lunar landscape, “Visitors” begins to take on cumulatively more spellbinding force, its juxtapositions inviting viewers simply to observe, internalize and

contemplate our own tumult, transience and primal creatureliness. Caught up in Reggio’s mutually mesmerizing gaze, viewers take part in two potent encounters: the first between the subjects and the camera, the second between those images and our own discrete consciousness. For those willing to join Reggio in his extended meditation, “Visitors” offers a sublime, even spiritual experience, as well as a bracing reminder of cinema’s power to create a transformative occasion. Like so many movies last year – “Gravity,” “All Is Lost” and “12 Years a Slave” among them – “Visitors” restores a sense of monumentality to a medium that has seemed so diminished by recent technological and commercial imperatives – so much so that Soderbergh has felt it necessary to retire. Luckily, he stayed close enough to present “Visitors” to a modern world that the film reflects in ways both celebratory and unbearably sad. Ultimately, “Visitors” is about projection: literally, by way of the crystalline 4K digital images on view, and figuratively, as the dynamic that defines the essence of spectatorship – not as a passive process but, at its best, a transcendent one.

• “Visitors” received four out of four stars. The film is Unrated and contains nothing objectionable. It runs 87 minutes.
