Lemont resident tracks down Slovenian roots

JOLIET – Two-time U.S. Olympian Cliff Meidl is scheduled to be in Joliet this week to speak at the annual meeting of JULIE Inc. about his own bad experience of digging without knowing what was underground. JULIE is the Joliet-based calling service used to alert utilities before digging is done to avoid hitting such hazards as gas and electric lines. The organization is marking its 40th anniversary this year. Meidl was using a jackhammer at the age of 20 when he hit three unmarked high-voltage electric cables, suffered severe burns and nearly lost the use

Branching out After Lois Ryan’s story was published in a Slovenian newspaper, a woman from Ohio contacted her, saying she also had relatives with the same last name from that town. Ryan encourages anyone else who may have a connection to contact her at The house and farm still are owned by the Race family and have been renovated into a country farm guest house. Ryan said the speed at which she found her relatives was surprising. “The thing was that of all

those folks that were at the genealogical conference, I was the only one to find the village [my grandmother was from], find the house she was born in and find my second cousins,” she said. She said the cousins were equally excited to meet her. “They were flabbergasted,” she said. “They were thrilled.” Ryan said she corresponds with the cousins weekly by email and plans to visit the village again next year with her daughter and grandchildren. Now able to fill her family tree on her grandmother’s side back to 1620, she hopes to learn more about her newly discovered family.

Lucky Day Lotto Midday:

SHAW MEDIA LEMONT – Lemont resident Lois Ryan went on a trip to Slovenia in September hoping to learn more about her grandmother, who had emigrated from there in 1909. In one day, she discovered not only her grandmother’s birth village, but relatives she did not know she had. Ryan was attending a conference for the Slovenian Genealogy Society International, which she joined last year. “I’ve had a close relationship with my grandmother,” she said. “So, I wanted to trace my roots.” Ryan said that before arriving in Slovenia, she only knew that her grandmother, Mary Race, was born in a village called Rodik. Once in Slovenia, Ryan, along with her husband, Jim, traveled to Rodik to check on birth records. Alhough there were multiple people with her grandmother’s name born in that village the same year, they were able to determine the house her grandmother was born in based on stories from when her grandmother came to visit in the 1960s.


of his legs. He since went on to be a member of Olympic kayaking teams in 1996 and 2000 and was the Team USA flag bearer in the 2000 Olympics. He also has become a motivational speaker, calling on his training and recovery experience after the digging accident. “My personal story connects me deeply to the safe digging community, so I’m really honored and excited to partner with JULIE to remind everyone to call 8-1-1 before starting any project that involves digging,” Meidl said in a news release announcing his appearance Friday at the Barber & Oberwortmann Horticultural Center in Joliet.

The number 8-1-1 is the onecall number to JULIE used to alert any utility about the location of an upcoming dig. Anyone planning to dig in Illinois is required to call the number at least two full business days before digging. JULIE covers all of Illinois outside of Chicago. It has handled more than 25.5 million location requests since being created in 1974 and takes more than 1.2 million requests a year, according to the news release. Common examples of projects that require a JULIE call are putting up a fence, installing a swing set, putting in a mail box post, digging a new garden and planting trees.

Simulated drunken driving event designed for parents and children By FELIX SARVER

See ‘ROAD TO REALITY,’ page 4

• Monday, April 28, 2014 *

LOCKPORT – Mike Vanover is all too familiar with the consequences of drunken driving. When Vanover, a former Will County deputy coroner, had to tell parents of a child’s death from a car accident caused by drunken driving, the experience would make his stomach churn. He told an audience of parents and children as much when they came out Thursday for Lockport Township High School’s “Road to Reality” event. Audiences were taken through simulated scenes of a party night gone horribly wrong to convey the real impact of drunken driving. The evening ended with Vanover standing in a room with a “dead” student zipped up in a body bag. He urged the people in the room to not drink and drive. “It takes one split second, one screw up, and there you are,” he said as he pointed to the body bag.

Drinking, drugs and driving: The impact on real life By BRIAN STANLEY Driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol has contributed to a number of real tragedies in Will County. Below is a list of just some of the serious consequences connected to driving while using alcohol and drugs.

March 6, 2011 – Crete Township: Police said Velar Mayfield was under the influence of marijuana when he lost control of the car on a patch of ice and struck a tree. His passengers Sarah C. Shepard, 21, of Park Forest, and Cheyenne

COVER STORY | The Herald-News /

July 14, 2012 – Plainfield: Police believe Andrew Henderson was under the influence of opiates he’d injected when his SUV pushed a Nissan Altima into a motorcycle on Route 126.

It is Castillo’s third DUI arrest. He pleaded guilty to aggravated DUI and was sentenced to nine years in prison. Aug. 8, 2012 – Manhattan: A car driven by Jason Rymut slams into the back of a Camaro at Cedar and Delaney Roads.

Wilmington waives fees to entice builders By VIKAAS SHANKER WILMINGTON – Municipalities in Will County have been lowering impact fees or eliminating them altogether to entice builders to construct homes again. “There’s an effort to pull housing construction back up,” said Bill Ward, executive vice president of the Home Builders Association of Illinois. Several municipalities in Will County have introduced incentives for home builders. Wilmington is one of those municipalities, recently announcing that impact fees will be waived for the next 30 residential-zoned lots used for construction. The cost of a building permit fee is about $14,000. But the waiving of the $8,000 water and sewer connection fee, as well as the estimated $4,600 school, park and library impact fees, drop the permit cost to about $1,350. “It’s a way to encourage growth with residential construction in town,” Mayor Marty Orr said, adding that the waiver is a collaborative effort with all the taxing bodies in the city. “We have a lot of vacant lots in town, which are doing nothing for the community. So we decided to entice builders to come here.” Orr said the city, with a U.S. Census 2010 population of 5,724, has only seen one or two houses built in the past couple of years. There are nearly 200 vacant improved lots and the city decided 30 lots was a good number to start the waiver program. “This is a first step,” Orr said. “There’s movement afoot trying to see how this is going to work. We’re keeping

open lines of communication with builders.” Manhattan lowered its impact fees in 2011, and Community Development Director Marc Nelson said it has had a positive impact on residential growth. “The fees went down around $10,000,” Nelson said. “We’re seeing an uptick in building. There were more than 40 permits last year. This year we hope to see 65 to 70 permits.” The village of Plainfield last week waived impact fees for the next five years for a specific development to encourage construction on the site sooner rather than later. The village approved a 79-acre annexation of an area known as the Kombol property for development of 183 homes. The agreement puts impact fees back in place for any construction after five years. When the Great Recession hit, housing dipped more in Illinois than it did any other state, Ward said. “Will County grouped in with the larger Chicagoland areas, it’s one of the worst areas in the country that got hit,” Ward said, nothing the near 85 percent drop in residential construction in the area was possibly worse than Great Depression times. The Chicago area last year saw about 10,000 new single-family home permits. But Ward said it’s a long way to go before housing picks back up to pre-recession numbers of 30,000 to 40,000 new permits. “To hear that Wilmington is doing this is very encouraging. We applaud that they recognize this is going to be helpful to home builders,” Ward said. “If a town isn’t growing, it’s dying.”

Lathan Goumas –

Lockport High School students act out a party scene Thursday during the “Road To Reality” program. The program consisted of different scenes portrayed for parents and their children on the possible consequences of driving drunk.

Parent hopes children learn about the dangers • ‘ROAD TO REALITY’ Continued from page 3 Lockport high school officials held the “Road to Reality” event to show the ripple effects of driving under the influence and how the lives of families can be destroyed. Real police officers and doctors were used in the scenes to enhance the event’s realism. “If you think about it, we use different kind of modes for learning,” said Sue Hudders, a social worker for the high school who helped organize the event. “We can’t just preach to our kids, ‘Don’t do this, don’t do this.’ But a visual approach is a strong thing. Our goal is somehow this will be just embedded in their memory. It’s very true to life.” The event began with a party scene where a group of students decided to get in a vehicle and drive after drinking. Afterward, the audiences were taken into a starkly lit “regret room” where one of the students cried over the death of their best friend and sister. The “accident” itself is then shown to the audience, who see police officers and ambu-

“Those friends you wanted to boast to about drinking, those that you wanted to hold you in high regard for your ‘adult-like’ behavior, will be nowhere to be found when you serve your time in prison.” Judge Paula Gomora during a scene lance workers help the surviving students. One student is shown to have gone through the car’s windshield. In the next scene, doctors from Silver Cross Hospital tried to save the life of one of the students but failed. In the penultimate scene, one of the students was taken to court and charged with reckless homicide for her involvement in the accident. Before she is sent to prison, Will County Judge Paula Gomora chastises her for succumbing to peer pressure and failing to consider the consequences of her action.

“Those friends you wanted to boast to about drinking, those that you wanted to hold you in high regard for your ‘adult-like’ behavior, will be nowhere to be found when you serve your time in prison,” she said in the scene. Before the student was handcuffed, she grabbed the wall next to her and cried. The whole event was emotional and intense for Lockport resident Margaret Teska and her daughters, who attend Taft School District 90. She said she came to the event so her children would learn about the dangers of drinking and driving. She said she knew some friends whose children died from drunk driving. “When you see something like this, you are almost hoping it doesn’t happen to anybody,” she said. The experience is also emotional for Vanover, who said these events are important in reducing the tragedies that come with drunk driving. “I can watch the people in the audience start to bawl when I talk to them and it chokes me up as well,” he said. “I can feel their pain.”

Deadly pig virus not Village of Diamond looking found yet in Will, for new commissioner Grundy counties By JESSICA BOURQUE


liet Junior College’s Weitendorf Agricultural Education Center on Laraway Road, said Bill Johnson, JJC swine production instructor. “The sellers went to strictly online sales for all three,” Johnson said. Johnson said the closest reported case was in Livingston County, south of Grundy County. “While it has been spreading, there’s some evidence that it has slowed down since the weather has warmed up,” Johnson said. Warmer temperatures appear to shorten the life of the virus, he said. The disease has been blamed for recent increases in bacon and pork prices. Farmers have struggled to control the virus, because little is known about how it spreads and there is not yet a federally approved vaccine. Believed to be from China, the virus poses the greatest risk to newborn piglets, which die from dehydration. It does not infect humans or other animals. “Older pigs that get infected with it will get sick but they don’t die,” Johnson said. “But if you have newborn pigs on the same farm, there is a great likelihood that they’ll get it and die.” Tim Maiers, director of industry and public relations for the Illinois Pork Producers Association, said the virus has spread throughout the state and is impacting large and small farms. “It’s hard to determine how it’s moving,” he said. “One farm has it, but the one next to it doesn’t. Then it shows up on another farm that’s fairly isolated.” The disease first showed up in the United States last May. Iowa, Minnesota and North Carolina have been among the states hardest hit by the virus. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently announced that hog farmers would be required to report the virus.

A deadly pig virus that has killed millions of pigs in 27 states so far has not shown up in Will and Grundy counties. But the virus is still having an impact. Increases in the price of pork and bacon are blamed on the virus. Local farmers are taking extra precautions to keep the virus away from their hogs. Spring hog sales at Joliet Junior College were canceled with farmers opting to take their business online. About 360 cases of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus have been reported in Illinois since March, according to The Associated Press. “I haven’t heard of any outbreaks in Will County at this point,” Will County Farm Bureau Manager Mark Schneidewind said. One reason for that might be because there are relatively few hog farms in the county, only about 20 or so in the Beecher, Peotone, Elwood and Wilmington areas, Schneidewind said. The same holds true in Grundy County, where there are no reported cases among the handful of hog operations, said Tasha Bunting, manager of the Grundy County Farm Bureau. But that doesn’t mean farmers here are not concerned. Dave Gemmer, owner of Clearview Park Farm in Morris, usually has about 700 pigs at his operation at any given time. “We’re taking extra precautions as far as going to market,” Gemmer said. “We’re double-booting, wearing plastic gloves and disinfecting the trailers. We don’t allow anyone on the farm anymore.” While scientists still aren’t quite sure how the virus is transmitted, manure is suspected. “From what I’ve read, it takes only one tiny speck” to spread the virus, Gemmer said. Concerns over the disease have lead to the cancellation of • The Associated Press conthree hog sales this spring at Jo- tributed to this story.

DIAMOND – Diamond residents wanting to be more involved in their local government can apply to be a village commissioner. Carla Youngquist held the position for the past six years, but resigned recently from the Diamond Village Board of Commissioners because she is moving. Her last meeting was Tuesday, and Diamond Mayor Terry Kernc said the village has 30 days to appoint a new commissioner.

It is a part-time position and compensated at $75 a meeting. Anyone interested in applying for the position can deliver their resume to Kernc at Diamond Village Hall, 1750 E. Division St. Kernc said if multiple applications are received, the board will go through an interview process before making a decision. “We are looking for someone who resides in the community who would like to bring some of their knowledge to the village board,” Kernc said Thursday. “We’re

hoping to get someone with an accounting background or some background that would apply to the position.” Youngquist was the finance commissioner, overseeing much of the village’s financial operations. According to Kernc, the commissioner works on the budget and reviews the monthly bills and treasurer’s report to make sure there are no inconsistencies in village spending. Youngquist had a background in banking and real estate before taking the position.

Lyme disease “I asked for it... strikes pets, too I GOT it!” VIEWS Kris Stadalsky One of the best things about living in our area is the wonderful parks, trails, rivers and open space areas. Channahon has McKinley Woods, the DuPage River and the I&M Canal trail going west to Morris and east to Joliet. Minooka has Lions Park and Lake Chaminwood Preserve, among others. Morris has Gebhard Woods and William G. Stratton state parks. But along with the greatness of outdoors comes pesky critters like ticks that can transmit diseases, including Lyme disease, not only to humans but to their pets, as well. Right now it’s prime tick season and people need to be careful where they take their dogs, said Susie Mazzorana, professional canine behavior consultant. Even if your pet is being treated with a tick preventative, there’s still a chance it can become infected, she said. Most products need the tick to actively bite its host to absorb the pesticide that kills them, Mazzorana said. The longer a tick is on its host, the higher the chance of transmitting a disease if the tick is infected. The areas you need to be most concerned with, according to Keith Tulk of Botanical Health Care, are those with tall grasses, wooded lots and places where lots of wildlife can be found. Keith and Susie live in an older section of Joliet, but they take their dogs for walks in many areas with trails. Last fall their terrier mix, Sarah, began showing signs of lameness in her back legs. Sarah had a typical blood work-up and X-rays, but nothing showed up. She was treated for arthritis. But they weren’t satisfied because, as Keith put it, Sarah just wasn’t herself. Susie looked up Sarah’s symptoms and came upon Lyme disease. A special set of

tests, which have to be requested, confirmed the diagnosis. “It’s scary how many dogs might be misdiagnosed,” she said. Common symptoms of Lyme disease, according to Baker Institute for Animal Health at Cornell University, are sudden lameness, sometimes severe pain, swollen joints, lack of appetite, fever, severe depression and reluctance to move. Some dogs never have any symptoms and their body can fight off the bacteria. Then there’s the random dog who it affects. As an Arborist, Keith works in many towns. He recently found out a dog belonging to a client in Elwood also was diagnosed with Lyme disease. Contrary to popular belief ticks don’t fly or jump. They lie in wait for an unsuspecting host as they cling to the tips of grasses and shrubs. They outstretch their first pair of legs to climb onto their victims. Ticks even select places to wait by identifying well-used paths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Ticks can be found in your yard if a wild animal – a deer, raccoon or squirrel – has been there and a tick drops off. The best thing to do is check your dog for ticks each time he’s been outside. There also are products that can be sprayed in yards to kill and repel them. The Centers for Disease Control has some good information about removing debris in yards to reduce the incidences of ticks. The bottom line, according to Susie, is to seek treatment if your dog displays any of the signs. Since Lyme disease can be hard to diagnose, don’t give up until you get an answer. “You know your dog, you know his energy and his habits,” Susie said. “Just be an advocate for them.”

Alternate funding Currently, the county’s veterans commission is funded through the county’s general fund, but the county recently discussed a tax levy as an alternate means of funding the commission. At its most-recent meeting, the Grundy County Finance Committee decided to hold off on the levy, which could be implemented by the County Board without going to a referendum. According to Grundy Coun-

ty Assessor Dave Henderson, a 0.02 percent levy would generate roughly $363,000 for the commission, much more than the VAC’s current budget of $191,000. The levy would translate to 2 cents per $100 of assessed property value. “We’ve gotten into these lawsuits and it’s eating up a lot of our general fund money,” Grundy County Board Chairman Ron Severson said Friday. “I think the levy might be the better way to

fund [the commission].” Buck said both the VAC and a local VFW post have passed resolutions of support for the VAC levy. However, the finance committee decided it did not want to impose any new taxes at this time. “I think the levy won’t solve all of the county’s financial problems, but at a low impact per taxpayer, it could make things easier,” Buck said.

MORRIS – Legal expenses and insurance premiums are adding up for the Grundy County Veterans Assistance Commission, which is bogged down in a legal battle with a former superintendent and staff. For fiscal 2014, the commission budgeted $7,700 for insurance, but GCVAC Superintendent Ken Buck expects to spend closer to $11,000 because the commission’s former liability insurance policy was not renewed this year. As a result, the commission was forced to find a new, more expensive provider. “Nobody wanted to touch us because of the lawsuits. ... Our general liability pretty much doubled,” Buck said last week during a Grundy County Community Relations Committee meeting. “We continue to be on our own for insurance, but we will continue to shop around as we go.” The lawsuits were filed by Elton Monson, who served as superintendent of the VAC from 1999 to 2011 when the commission, later supported by the Grundy County Board, terminated Monson and two other employees at the time – Kathleen Doran and Phyllis Doran. The most recent lawsuit, filed Dec. 12, 2013, by Monson and Kathleen Doran, was brought against the county and multiple other parties for wrongful termination. Kathleen Doran also filed on behalf of Phyllis Doran, who has since died. The other named parties in the suit are the Morris American Legion, Grundy County Marines Corps League, Disabled American Veterans, Morris VFW, Coal City American Legion, Minooka American Legion, current VAC superintendent Ken Buck, the VAC, VAC Chairman Harion Enervold, the Kendall County VAC, the Illinois Association of VACs and Judges Robert Marsaglia, Sheldon Sobol and Lance Peterson. Earlier this month a mo-

tion to dismiss was filed by the defense. Last week, it was answered with a motion to strike the attempt at dismissal. The parties are scheduled to be in court Monday for a hearing before a Will County judge in the Grundy County Courthouse. The hearing will be on these motions, as well as on the appointment of a special administrator. The veterans groups are being represented by Rathbun, Cservenyak & Kozol firm. Special representation will have to be made for the judges and the county due to conflicts of interest, Grundy County Assistant State’s Attorney Perry Rudman said. “We’re hoping to get this dismissed, but we don’t even have the first appearance in front of a judge until this coming week,” Buck said Thursday. Buck said the commission will most likely be over budget on professional services, as well, because of the increasing legal fees. Buck budgeted $7,500 for professional services this year, but said he already is at that amount with more than six months left in the fiscal year. “Last year when I made this budget, I had no idea there was going to be another lawsuit,” Buck told the committee Thursday. “So we’re probably going to blow that line item, as well.” Monson filed a previous lawsuit in 2011 over the dispute of the termination of the original VAC and the creation of another VAC now run by Buck. The court ruled in favor of the new VAC.

Physicians Immediate Care relocating Will be more centrally located as of mid-July By FELIX SARVER JOLIET – Physicians Immediate Care in Joliet is set to move to a new location in the middle of the summer. Construction for a new building at the corner of Black Road and Larkin Avenue began last week, said Todd Vang, Physicians Immediate Care vice president of location strategy and patient insights. The health care company plans to move from Essington

Road to the new site, seeing it as more centrally located in Joliet. “We really feel we will serve the core of Joliet much better and more conveniently in this location,” Vang said. Physicians Immediate Care provides urgent care and occupational health services with 30 locations in three states, according to its website. The Joliet location is a walk-in clinic and will benefit from the new building’s design that will shrink waiting

time, Vang said. He said the building will have a larger waiting room and enhanced flow in the clinical areas for patients. The new facility is 3,500 square feet, which is slightly smaller than the old location but will improve the patient experience, Vang said. There will be five exam rooms – including a pediatric room – and a trauma room. The location on Essington Road will remain open until the new building is ready to go in mid-July, he said.

School District 205 gets a passing grade in finances By FELIX SARVER LOCKPORT – Lockport Township High School District 205 last week got a passing grade from its financial consultant. PMA Financial Network provided school officials with an analysis of district finances, along with a five-year projection. Several factors the company considered included the district’s annual financial reports, budget, levy reports, certified staff contracts and student and staff ratios. “You have an adequate amount of fund balance to continue to weather the storm of the economy,” Steven Crouse,

PMA Financial Network senior financial consultant, said at the end of his presentation. More than 82 percent of the Lockport school district’s revenue comes from property taxes, Crouse said. He told board members while property values declined because of past economic problems, it is expected to get better. Other sources of revenue include federal funding and general state aid. For federal funding, special education is expected to increase by 1 percent in the future. PMA Financial Network projects the school district’s general state aid revenue will remain relatively flat for the next five years. General state

aid is expected to stay at 85 percent in the future, pending any new legislation, Crouse said. He said the biggest expenses for the district are salaries and benefits. Health insurance is expected to increase by 6 percent for the next fiscal year and then increase by 7 percent in the future. Enrollment is expected to stay flat for the next five years, with a slight increase in 2019. Enrollment for 2014 sits at 3,662 and may rise to 3,834 in 2019. Crouse said enrollment is expected to recover as the economy recovers. “We’re probably in as good as shape as we can be,” School Board President John Lukasik said.

Shorewood woman overcame hardships and served others By DENISE M. BARAN–UNLAND

Patricia Grawey-Beeler about her mother, Louise genuine compassion. “She’d do anything for you,” Patricia said. “In return, she expected you to respect her for that and to realize she had done it out of friendship, not because she owed anybody anything but because she wanted to do it.” Photo provided

Louise Grawey was as unique as her clothing style. She didn’t believe in wearing the same outfit twice in a month – so was an avid sales shopper – and she never wore a pair of tennis shoes until after her stroke in 2012, Patricia said. “Her philosophy was to always dress as though you were important because everyone you meet is important,” Patricia said. “She felt you dress up for people you respect and things that are important.” After a stroke in 2012 – and Louise had just renewed her driver’s license the previous month – Louise’s abilities rapidly diminished. Patricia moved her mother from Peoria to The Timbers of Shorewood to keep a closer watch on her.

Louise was 95 when she died Dec. 12. She left behind a legacy of self-respect and

SHOREWOOD – Two weeks ago, Patricia Grawey-Beeler, 61, of Minooka, went skydiving for the first time. She didn’t tell husband until after the fact. Patricia attributed her adventurous nature to her mother, Louise Grawey of Shorewood. “I have a picture of my mother riding a camel in Spain. I have never ridden a camel,” Patricia said. “But she’d see something on TV and say, ‘Let’s go do that.’ There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t try.” While Louise’s second husband, the late Charles A. Grawey, was serving in the U.S. Army, Louise did volunteer work through that Florida base, Patricia said. When her children – Anne Applegate of Utah, Jim Grawey of Colorado, Kit Grawey-Schmidt of Huntley and Patricia – were in school, Louise served as room mom and Scout leader. But as the children grew older, Louise, who worked as a nurse in Galesburg until she married her first husband, still wanted to serve others. So for 30 years, the avid reader volunteered for the Radio Information Service through Bradley University in Peoria, reading various materials for the blind, Patricia said. In later years, Louise

served on the board of a senior citizen ombudsman program. As its public advocate, Louise visited nursing homes and senior centers to ensure their residents were receiving quality care, Patricia said. At the same time and for many years, Louise was an excellent bowler, Patricia said, of championship quality. She won several trophies for 300 games and often maintained averages between 218 and 248. “And she threw a 16-pound ball,” Patricia aid. She feels her mother’s accomplishments are especially noteworthy, considering Louise’s mother abandoned her at age 12; her firstborn died shortly after birth; and her first husband committed suicide several years later. Growing up, Patricia always admired her mother’s inner strength. She always knew that, whatever the problem, “mother will help me figure it out.” Although compassionate, Louise also “didn’t pull any punches.” “You knew exactly what she was thinking,” Patricia said. “She felt you had to be open and honest with people, not rude and nasty, just open and honest. Commitment and being honest were important to her. The people that knew her always respected her.” It was part of Louise’s unique way of relating to others, communication that

By DON BABWIN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Rashad Harden, a house music and footwork pioneer who performed as DJ Rashad, was found dead this weekend of an apparent drug overdose, authorities said Sunday. He was 34. Chicago police spokeswoman Janel Sedevic said a friend found Harden’s body Saturday afternoon in an apartment on the city’s West Side. There was no sign of injury but narcotics and drug paraphernalia were found near his body, she said. An autopsy was conducted Sunday but the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said it is waiting for the results of toxicology tests to determine a cause of death. Harden’s death comes just days before his EP was scheduled for release and less than a month after fellow house music star Frankie Knuckles

“He shared his music with everyone that would listen. He’s been all over the world, taking footwork all over the world.” Anthony Harden DJ Rashad’s father

also died in the city. Harden, a resident of Calumet City, was poised for a breakout year, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. His fifth album received his best reviews, he was scheduled to play clubs all over the world and his latest EP, “We On 1,” was scheduled to be released Monday. “It’s just a tragic loss of a great musical genius,” said longtime friend and collaborator Morris Harper, who

performs as DJ Spinn and who was scheduled to appear with Rashad in Detroit on Saturday night. Rashad was considered a pioneer of footwork – an electronic-oriented music genre that originated in Chicago. Once known as juke, footwork is named for its quick dance moves and is known for what Rolling Stone calls a “frenzied and hypnotic style of dance music that features heart-racing BPMs and, often, chopped-up loops of popular rap, R&B and pop vocals.” The Sun-Times reported Rashad’s fifth LP, “Double Cup,” which came out last year, is credited with attracting a wider audience to footwork music. “He shared his music with everyone that would listen,” Harden’s father, Anthony Harden, told the Sun-Times. “He’s been all over the world, taking footwork all over the world.”

STATE Ill. Dems consider new minimum wage plan By KERRY LESTER The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – With Illinois Democrats struggling to find enough votes to increase the state’s minimum wage, some lawmakers are quietly proposing a less-contentious plan that would ask voters what they think of the idea before the Legislature tries to pass a politically risky bill. But state Sen. Kimberly Lightford, who is sponsoring the proposal to hike the minimum wage from $8.25 to $10.65 per hour, says putting a nonbinding resolution on the November ballot would only be a “last resort.” Some Democrats in swing suburban and downstate districts have joined Republicans in resisting the effort amid fears that companies would lay off workers or hire fewer new ones. “We just need 30 votes at the end at the day. That’s what we seemingly don’t have right now,” Lightford said. The Legislature has moved slowly on approving the minimum wage increase, even though Gov. Pat Quinn and other Democrats have made it a core component of their campaign to keep the governor’s mansion and pick up congressional seats in Illinois and across the country. But not all Democrats in the Legislature are on board with their party’s campaign priority. State Sen. John Sullivan, a Rushville Democrat, told a group of Quincy business leaders earlier this month that he’s “gotten some flack” over his opposition to the legislation, which he says could send businesses to neighboring states with lower minimum wages. “Unemployment hasn’t come down the way I think it should in Illinois, and I

“Unemployment hasn’t come down the way I think it should in Illinois, and I don’t think [higher minimum wage] is going to help move that agenda forward.” State Sen. John Sullivan D-Rushville don’t think [higher minimum wage] is going to help move that agenda forward,” Sullivan said. “I’m conflicted on it. It’s a tough issue. But given the current situation, that’s why I wouldn’t support it.” John Jackson, a political science professor at Southern Illinois University, said although increasing the minimum wage makes sense as a talking point for Democrats on the state and national levels, “I haven’t heard a heard a single [southern Illinois] area legislator salute the idea.” Meanwhile, Republicans remain unified in their opposition to an increase, saying an across-the-board wage hike pushes employers to cut jobs. State Sen. Jim Oberweis, R-Sugar Grove, who is bidding to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, has introduced a proposal that would hike the state’s minimum wage only for those 26 or older. Quinn’s Republican challenger, Winnetka businessman Bruce Rauner, has moved from “adamantly, adamantly” opposing an increase to outlining a scenario in which he could favor an increase in the wage, so long as it was paired with a series of business-friendly reforms. After being pulled from consideration during committee three times this spring, the Senate Executive

Committee approved a minimum wage increase late last month and is awaiting a floor vote. Speaker Michael Madigan said this week that he’s still actively working the roll call in his chamber, where 60 votes are needed to pass the bill before the May 31 adjournment deadline. “Once we get to 60 [votes needed to pass], we’ll be prepared to call the bill,” Madigan told reporters in Springfield. Although Quinn has loudly called for an increase on the campaign trail, Lightford said it has been months since the governor met with her on the issue. In a statement, Quinn’s spokeswoman, Brooke Anderson, said the governor “believes that 2014 is the year to get this done. We continue to work with legislators to raise Illinois’ minimum wage. This is one of the Governor’s top priorities and he has consistently stated his goal to get it done this year. Building a majority is necessary to pass this legislation and we are working with key leaders, legislators and advocates on this.” Even if the initiative isn’t passed, Jackson said, it wouldn’t be “an embarrassment” to Democrats. A referendum could enhance other efforts by Madigan, the state Democratic party chairman, to lure Democratic voters to the polls, including a constitutional amendment that would bar the Legislature from enacting additional voting requirements, Jackson said. “I think they’ll be quite all right,” he said. “The Democrats have just got to get out both statewide and nationally to reach more low income voters and minorities. They really need to mobilize the base.”

STATE BRIEFS 4 die, 30-plus wounded in weekend Chicago gunfire CHICAGO – Four people have been killed and at least 31 have been wounded in shootings in Chicago over the weekend – the third weekend in a row in which more than 30 people suffered gunshot wounds. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that among those killed was a 21-year-old woman who was shot while riding in a car in the Logan Square neighborhood early Sunday. Police say Cindy Bahena was shot after a group of men on the sidewalk shouted gang signs and opened fire on the vehicle. They say the driver is a known gang member and that Bahena was not the intended target. Also among those dead is 17-year-old Jaquez William. He was shot in the head early Saturday while standing on the street in the city’s Austin neighborhood.

Vaccine requirements for entering Ill. schools SPRINGFIELD – Illinois health officials are asking parents to take note of new immunization requirements for children entering schools starting this fall. Children entering school at any grade level from kindergarten to high school will have to show proof of having received two doses each – instead of one – of rubella and mumps vaccines. Also, children entering kindergarten, sixth grade or ninth grade for the first time must show that they’ve had two doses of the varicella, or chicken pox, vaccine. Looking ahead, children going back to class for the 201516 school year will need to have gotten a meningococcal vaccine, which is currently not required. Illinois Department of Public Health Director LaMar Hasbrouck says while some vaccine-preventable diseases are

rare in the U.S., they are “only a plane ride away.”

Chicago woman accused of newborn son’s death CHICAGO – An 18-year-old Chicago woman is jailed on $500,000 bond after being accused of killing her newborn son. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Ana Rosa Mora was charged Friday in Cook County with first-degree murder in the April 19 death of her newborn. Authorities say the baby’s body was found wrapped in a plastic bag in a gangway between two buildings near Mora’s home. Mora does not have a listed home telephone number. It was not immediately clear whether she had legal representation. Her next court appearance was scheduled for Monday.

Public hearings set on medical marijuana rules CHICAGO – Illinois health officials are planning two public hearings on proposed rules affecting patients who want to use medical marijuana. The state’s medical marijuana program is a four-year pilot project. The rules under consideration affect how adult patients with specific health conditions will be able to buy marijuana. Hearings will be in Chicago and Springfield. The Chicago hearing will be at the Thompson Center starting at 9:30 a.m. May 5. The Springfield hearing will be on the University of Illinois Springfield campus at 9 a.m. May 21. The proposed rules were published in the Illinois Register on April 18. That marked the start of a formal rulemaking process and a public comment period. The Legislature’s Joint Committee on Administrative Rules begins its review in early June.

By KIMBERLY HEFLING The Associated Press WASHINGTON – U.S. public high schools have reached a milestone, an 80 percent graduation rate. Yet that still means 1 of every 5 students walks away without a diploma. Citing the progress, researchers are projecting a 90 percent national graduation rate by 2020. Their report, based on Education Department statistics from 2012, was being presented Monday at the Building a GradNation Summit. The growth has been spurred by such factors as a greater awareness of the dropout problem and efforts by districts, states and the federal government to include graduation rates in accountability measures. Among the initiatives are closing “drop-

out factory” schools. In addition, schools are taking aggressive action, such as hiring intervention specialists who work with students one on one, to keep teenagers in class, researchers said. Growth in rates among African-American and Hispanic students helped fuel the gains. Most of the growth has occurred since 2006 after decades of stagnation. “At a moment when everything seems so broken and seems so unfixable ... this story tells you something completely different,” said John Gomperts, president of America’s Promise Alliance, which was founded by former Secretary of State Colin Powell and helped produce the report. The rate of 80 percent is based on federal statistics primarily using a calculation by which the number of gradu-

ates in a given is year divided by the number of students who enrolled four years earlier. Adjustments are made for transfer students. In 2008, the Bush administration ordered all states to begin using this method. Iowa, Vermont, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Texas ranked at the top with rates at 88 percent or 89 percent. The bottom performers were Alaska, Georgia, New Mexico, Oregon and Nevada, which had rates at 70 percent or below. The new calculation method allows researchers to individually follow students and chart progress based on their income level. By doing so, researchers found that some states are doing much better than others in getting low-income students – or those who receive free or reduced lunch meals – to graduation day.

Supreme Court takes on privacy in digital age By MARK SHERMAN The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Two Supreme Court cases about police searches of cellphones without warrants present vastly different views of the ubiquitous device. Is it a critical tool for a criminal or is it an American’s virtual home? How the justices answer that question could determine the outcome of the cases being argued Tuesday. A drug dealer and a gang member want the court to rule that the searches of their cellphones after their arrest violated their right to privacy in the digital age. The Obama administration and California, defending the searches, say cellphones are no different from anything else a person may be carrying when arrested. Police may

search those items without a warrant under a line of high court cases reaching back 40 years. What’s more, said Donald Verrilli Jr., the administration’s top Supreme Court lawyer, “Cellphones are now critical tools in the commission of crimes.” The cases come to the Supreme Court amid separate legal challenges to the massive warrantless collection of telephone records by the National Security Agency and the government’s use of technology to track Americans’ movements. Librarians, the news media, defense lawyers and civil liberties groups on the right and left are trying to convince the justices that they should take a broad view of the privacy issues raised when police have unimpeded access to

increasingly powerful devices that may contain a wealth of personal data: emails and phone numbers, photographs, information about purchases and political affiliations, books and a gateway to even more material online. “Cellphones and other portable electronic devices are, in effect, our new homes,” the American Civil Liberties Union said in a court filing that urged the court to apply the same tough standards to cellphone searches that judges have historically applied to police intrusions into a home. Under the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment, police generally need a warrant before they can conduct a search. The warrant itself must be based on “probable cause,” evidence that a crime has been committed.

Observers held in Ukraine speak under armed guard By PETER LEONARD The Associated Press SLOVYANSK, Ukraine – Pro-Russian militants in camouflage fatigues and black balaclavas paraded captive European military observers before the media on Sunday, hours after three captured Ukrainian security guards were shown bloodied, blindfolded and stripped of their trousers and shoes, their arms bound with packing tape. The provocative displays came as the increasingly ruthless pro-Russian insurgency in the east turns to kidnapping as an ominous new tactic. Dozens of people are being held hostage, including journalists and pro-Ukraine activists, in makeshift jails in Slovyansk, the heart of the separatists’ territory, as the pro-Russian insurgents strengthen their control in defiance of the interim government in Kiev and its Western supporters. Speaking in deliberate and clipped phrases, Col.

Axel Schneider of Germany, speaking on behalf of the observers, insisted they were not NATO spies, as claimed by the insurgents, but a military observation mission operating under the auspices of the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe. “We are not fighters, we are diplomats in uniform,” he said, noting that his unarmed team included an officer from Sweden, which is not a NATO member. The observers appeared nervous as they were escorted by the masked armed men into the Slovyansk city hall for the news conference. Referring to himself and his team as “guests” under the “protection” of the city’s self-proclaimed mayor, Schneider said they were being treated as well as possible under the circumstances. “The mayor of this city granted us his protection and he regarded us as his guests,” Schneider told journalists. “I can tell you that the word of the mayor is a word of honor. We have not been touched.”

Tornadoes strike central, southern U.S., killing 2 By CHRISTINA HUYNH and TIM TALLEY The Associated Press MAYFLOWER, Ark. – A powerful storm system rumbled through the central and southern United States on Sunday, spawning a massive tornado that carved path of destruction through the northern Little Rock suburbs and another twister that killed two people in Oklahoma and injured others in Kansas. The Arkansas tornado touched down about 10 miles west of Little Rock at around 7 p.m. and moved northeastward for at least 30 miles, the National Weather Service reported. The tornado missed the state capital, but it passed through or near several of its northern suburbs, including the town of Mayflower, where it destroyed several homes and businesses. Authorities issued tornado emergencies for the nearby communities of Maumelle, Morgan, Saltillo and Vilonia. There were no immediate reports of deaths or injuries from the Arkansas tornado, but it reportedly grew to be a halfmile wide and caused extensive property damage. Television footage showed buildings that had been turned to rubble and

trees that had been stripped bare of their leaves and smaller branches. That twister was one of several that touched down Sunday as a large storm system moved through a large swath of the Plains, Midwest and South. Less than two hours before the Arkansas tornado struck, a twister hit the small northeastern Oklahoma community of Quapaw, killing two people, Ottawa County sheriff’s dispatcher Colleen Thompson said. Ottawa County Emergency Management director Joe Dan Morgan said Quapaw, which has about 900 residents, was heavily damaged by the tornado. “Looks like about half of town got extensive damage as well as the fire department,” Morgan said. Six people were treated for tornado-related injuries at Baptist Regional Health Center in Miami, Okla., said hospital spokeswoman Kristie Wallace. Five of the six were treated and released, and the sixth, who was in fair condition with a broken bone, was kept overnight, she said. After hitting Quapaw, the tornado moved northward into Kansas and struck Baxter Springs, a city of about 4,200

residents about 5 miles away. Cherokee County, Kan., sheriff’s dispatcher Josh Harvey said the tornado that hit Baxter Springs injured several people and caused extensive damage, but that no deaths had been reported. He said first responders were going from house to house checking on residents’ well-being. Tornadoes also touched down Sunday in other states such as Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri. One of Sunday’s twisters touched down northwest of Joplin, Mo., where a massive tornado in May 2011 killed 161 people, injured many others and leveled a large swath of the city. Sunday’s twister didn’t hit Joplin. The first reported tornado Sunday touched down in a rural area in central in Nebraska. The weather service said it remained on the ground for only a short time, and there were no immediate reports of damage. Forecasters warned that areas that weren’t hit by tornadoes were still at risk of damage from hail and powerful straightline winds. Forecasters warned of hail stones as big as baseballs and wind gusts that could reach hurricane-force – 75 mph or higher.


By STEPHEN SINGER The Associated Press HARTFORD, Conn. – A 16-year-old girl stabbed at her high school on the day of her junior prom died of wounds to her torso and neck, Connecticut’s chief medical examiner said Sunday. The medical examiner’s office ruled that Maren Sanchez’s death was a homicide. A 16-year-old male classmate is charged with murder as a juvenile in the stabbing at Jonathan Law High School in Milford. The attack occurred Friday morning, hours before the school’s prom, and authorities are investigating whether Sanchez was stabbed after turning down the boy’s invitation to the dance. Police haven’t released the suspect’s name, but people who saw him taken into

custody identified him as Chris Plaskon, a friend of the victim’s and an athlete described as genial and respectful. Plaskon’s attorney, Richard Meehan, said his client is being held in a hospital under psychiatric evaluation. Plaskon will not appear at an arraignment scheduled for Monday in New Haven, the attorney said. Meehan has said he expects his client to eventually be charged as an adult and that the suspect’s family is reeling from the attack. “His family is devastated not only for him, but the youngster who was killed. It’s a terrible situation all the way around,” Meehan said. Mark Robinson, a technical education teacher who saw the suspect being taken out of the school in handcuffs, said Plaskon is the third of five brothers and has

a good sense of humor. His family has deep roots in the community, Robinson said. “There’s no reason to suspect he would have done this. I think that’s what makes it harder,” Robinson said. Classmate Imani Langston, who saw Plaskon being read his rights and taken away in a police car, said Sanchez and the boy were just friends and had never dated. Sanchez, a member of the National Honor Society who was active in drama and other school activities, had been focused on prom in the days before her death. She had posted a photograph on Facebook of her blue prom dress and was looking forward to attending with a new boyfriend. Milford Alderwoman Greta Stanford said the school would remain closed Monday.

VATICAN CITY – Two 20th-century popes who changed the course of the Catholic Church became saints Sunday as Pope Francis honored John XXIII and John Paul II in a delicate balancing act aimed at bringing together the conservative and progressive wings of the church. As if to drive the message of unity home, Francis invited retired Pope Benedict XVI to join him on the altar of St. Peter’s Square, the first time a reigning and retired pope have celebrated Mass together in public in the 2,000-year history of the church. An estimated 800,000 people – many of them from John Paul’s native Poland – filled St. Peter’s, the streets around it and bridges over the Tiber River, a huge turnout but only half the size of the crowd that came out for John Paul’s 2011 beatification. John reigned from 19581963 and is a hero to liberal Catholics for having convened the Second Vatican Council. The meetings brought the church into the modern era by allowing Mass to be celebrated in local languages rather than Latin and encouraged greater dialogue with people of other faiths, particularly Jews. During his globe-trotting, quarter-century papacy, John Paul II helped topple communism and invigorated a new generation of Catholics, while his defense of core church teaching on abortion, marriage and other hot-button issues heartened conservatives after the turbulent 1960s. Benedict was one of John Paul’s closest confidantes and went on to preside over a deeply tradition-minded eight-year papacy. His successor Francis seems a pope much more inspired by the pastoral, simple style of the “good pope” John. Yet Francis offered each new saint heartfelt praise in his homily, saying John had allowed himself to be led by

God to call the council, and hailing John Paul’s focus on the family. It’s an issue that Francis has asked the church as a whole to take up for discussion with a two-year debate starting this fall. “They were priests, bishops and popes of the 20th century,” Francis said. “They lived through the tragic events of that century, but they were not overwhelmed by them.” Benedict put John Paul on the fast-track for possible sainthood just weeks after his 2005 death, responding to the chants of “Santo Subito!” or “Sainthood Now!” that erupted during his funeral Mass. John Paul’s canonization is now the fastest in modern times. John’s sainthood run, on the other hand, languished after his 2000 beatification. Rather than let John Paul have the limelight with a canonization on his own – emboldening many in the conservative wing of the church – Francis decided to pair him up with John. To do so, Francis tweaked the Vatican’s own saint-making rules, deciding that John could be made a saint alongside John Paul without the necessary second miracle usually required. Francis sounded a note of continuity in his homily, praising John for having called the council and John Paul for helping implement it. “John XXIII and John Paul II cooperated with the Holy Spirit in renewing and updating the church in keeping with her pristine features, those features which the saints have given her throughout the centuries,” Francis said. During the ceremony, Francis took a deep breath and paused for a moment before reciting the saint-making formula in Latin, as if moved by the history he was about to make in canonizing two popes at once. As soon as he did so, applause broke out from a crowd in St. Peter’s and beyond.

South Korea prime minister quits over sunken ferry By HYUNG–JIN KIM and YOUKYUNG LEE The Associated Press JINDO, South Korea – South Korea’s prime minister resigned Sunday over the government’s handling of a ferry sinking that has left more than 300 people dead or missing and led to widespread shame, fury and finger-pointing, blaming “deep-rooted evils” in society for the tragedy. South Korean executive power is largely concentrated in the president, so Chung Hong-won’s resignation appears to be symbolic. Presidential spokesman Min Kyung-wook said President Park Geun-hye would accept the resignation, but did not say when Chung would leave office. Chung’s resignation comes amid rising indignation over claims by the victims’ relatives that the government did not do enough to rescue or protect their loved ones. Most of the dead and missing were high school students on a school trip. Officials have taken into custody all 15 people involved in navigating the ferry Sewol,

which sank April 16. A prosecutor revealed that investigators also were looking into communications made as the ship sank between a crew member and the company that owns the ferry. Chung was heckled by victims’ relatives and his car was blocked when he visited a shelter on an island near the site of the sinking a week ago. On Sunday, he gave his reasoning for the resignation to reporters in Seoul. “As I saw grieving families suffering with the pain of losing their loved ones and the sadness and resentment of the public, I thought I should take all responsibility as prime minister,” Chung said. “There have been so many varieties of irregularities that have continued in every corner of our society and practices that have gone wrong. I hope these deep-rooted evils get corrected this time and this kind of accident never happens again.” Meanwhile, senior prosecutor Yang Jung-jin said that two helmsmen and two members of the steering crew who were detained Saturday had been formally arrested. Eleven other crew members, including

South Korean Prime Minister Chung Hong-won bows to the nation after offering his resignation Sunday at the Central Government Complex in Seoul, South Korea. Chung offered to resign over the government’s handling of a deadly ferry sinking. the captain, had been arrested earlier. Yang said a crew member called the ship’s owner, Chonghaejin Marine Co. Ltd., as the ferry was listing, but declined to disclose whether the caller was the captain. Local media reported the captain called for company approval of an evacuation. Prosecutors said they are analyzing the content of communications between the ship and the company.

The arrested crew members are accused of negligence and of failing to help passengers in need. Capt. Lee Joonseok initially told passengers to stay in their rooms and took half an hour to issue an evacuation order, by which time the ship was tilting too severely for many people to get out. Divers have recovered 188 bodies and 114 people are believed to be missing, though the government-wide emer-

gency task force has said the ship’s passengers list could be inaccurate. Only 174 people survived, including 22 of the 29 crew members. The seven surviving crew members who have not been arrested or detained held non-marine jobs such as chef or steward, Yang said. Lee told reporters after his arrest that he withheld the evacuation order because rescuers had yet to arrive and he feared for passengers’ safety in the cold, swift water. Helmsman Oh Yong-seok, one of those arrested Saturday, has said he and several crew members did their best to save people. He said that he and four crew members worked from nearby boats to smash windows on the sinking ferry, dragging six passengers stuck in cabins to safety. The Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries said it would soon change ferry systems so that passenger, vehicle and cargo information is processed electronically. There is not only uncertainty about how many people were on the Sewol, but a huge discrepancy regarding the amount of cargo it was carrying when it sank.

Palestinian president calls Holocaust ‘most heinous crime’ By JOSEF FEDERMAN The Associated Press JERUSALEM – The Palestinian president on Sunday called the Holocaust “the most heinous crime” of modern history, voicing a rare acknowledgment of Jewish suffering shortly before Israel held its annual memorial for victims of the Nazi genocide. President Mahmoud Abbas’ announcement appeared to be aimed at reaching out to Israeli public opinion at a time of deep crisis in U.S.backed peace efforts. Israelis frequently claim the Palestinians are not sincere about wanting peace. While Israel’s national Holocaust memorial said Abbas’ comments may be a step in the right direction, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brushed them aside. He said the Abbas’ renewed

attempts to reconcile with the Islamic militant movement Hamas raised doubts about the Palestinian leader’s intentions. Hamas, a movement sworn to Israel’s destruction, has questioned the Holocaust and blocked the subject from being taught in schools in the Gaza Strip. “President Abbas can’t have it both ways. He can’t say the Holocaust was terrible, but at the same time embrace those who deny the Holocaust and seek to perpetrate another destruction of the Jewish people,” Netanyahu told CNN. For Abbas, however, conciliatory language marked a breakthrough of sorts. Denials or attempts to minimize the Holocaust, which saw the systematic killing of 6 million Jews by Nazi Germany in World War II, are widespread in the Arab world. Many Palestinians fear

that if they acknowledge the Holocaust, they will diminish their own claims based on years of suffering, including their uprooting during Israel’s 1948 creation and decades under Israeli occupation. Abbas himself has been accused of minimizing the scope of the Holocaust in a doctoral dissertation in the 1970s, though in recent years he’s edged toward acknowledging Jewish suffering. Abbas’ office said he discussed the Holocaust in a meeting with an American rabbi, Marc Schneier, who visited Abbas’ headquarters in Ramallah last week. Abbas told Schneier that “what happened to the Jews in the Holocaust is the most heinous crime to have occurred against humanity in the modern era,” according to comments carried by the Palestinian news agency WAFA

on Sunday. The agency quoted Abbas as expressing his “sympathy with the families of the victims and many other innocent people who were killed.” Abbas said the Holocaust was an expression of the idea of ethnic discrimination and racism, and connected it to the Palestinian suffering of today. “The Palestinian people, who suffer from injustice, oppression and [are] denied freedom and peace, are the first to demand to lift the injustice and racism that befell other peoples subjected to such crimes,” he said. Israel’s official Holocaust memorial Yad Vashem said it hoped Abbas’ comment may “signal a change” in the Arab world, where “Holocaust denial and revisionism are sadly prevalent.” It said it expected Abbas’ stance to be “reflected

in [Palestinian] websites, curricula and discourse.” Abbas’ statement came as the latest U.S. attempt to broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal was on the verge of collapse. He urged Israel not to walk away. “On the incredibly sad commemoration of Holocaust Day, we call on the Israeli government to seize the current opportunity to conclude a just and comprehensive peace in the region, based on the two states’ vision, Israel and Palestine living side by side in peace and security,” Abbas said. At the start of negotiations in late July, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry had set an end-of-April target date for a peace deal. He later lowered expectations, calling for the outlines of an agreement and, in a last attempt, for a deal on extending the talks.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Hospital associate supports maintaining tax rates To the Editor: We all agree Illinois has serious, overwhelming financial challenges. While we try to diagnose the problems, the immediate issue for the next 30 days is what we are willing to do to save Illinois from financial collapse. Therefore, on behalf of the entire Illinois hospital community, we pledge full support for maintaining our current tax rates to keep Illinois from falling into the financial abyss. This issue is not just about hospitals. It’s also about roads, schools and public safety. Without the continuation of current tax revenues, these areas will be subject

to severe cuts in funding. We have all witnessed firsthand the needed improvements in Illinois roads, health care, public safety and education. We have much work to do to improve the lives of all Illinoisans, which calls for stable and predictable state funding. Deciding to support a continuation of current tax rates is not easy. But taking the easy way out today will only make tomorrow’s problems worse. We must collectively find the courage to do the right thing now. We need to keep our promises to Illinoisans to keep our state safe, well-educated and healthy. No silver bullet can solve these issues. It takes tough decisions and

sacrifice for the greater good of the state. That’s why the Illinois hospital community supports taking this difficult action. Now is the time for political courage and statesmanship – and for legislators to make tough decisions for these tough times. We ask state lawmakers to vote “Yes” to enact an FY2015 state budget that maintains current tax rates. Our future depends on it. Maryjane A. Wurthm President & CEO, Illinois Hospital Association

• LETTERS Continued from page 19 April is Alcohol Awareness Month To the Editor: This April marks the 28th Annual Alcohol Awareness Month declared by The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD). Alcohol is still the most widely used substance by America’s young people. Alcoholism and alcohol-related problems are the No. 1 public health related issues in the United States. In fact, sustained use can lead to serious health issues such as heart disease, diabetes,

and cirrhosis. This month reminds us alcohol use by teens is still prevalent and directly linked traffic fatalities, alcohol overdose and other problem behaviors. Treatment providers, doctors, counseling professionals, court services professionals and community groups can all come together to reduce the use of alcohol among teens and thus reduce these devastating consequences. Sustained prevention efforts are necessary and four areas have proven to be effective in prevention of this problem: • Curtailing the availability of alcohol to underage populations; • Consistent enforcing of

existing laws and regulations regarding alcohol purchase; • Changing cultural misconceptions and behaviors about alcohol use through education; and • Expanding access to treatment and recovery support for adolescents and their families. Let’s continue to work on these efforts as a community. Studies reveal that alcohol consumption by adolescents results in brain damage – possibly permanent – and impairs intellectual development. Prevention and treatment efforts can and do save lives.

JCA middle infield supports dominant staff VIEWS Dick Goss Not that long ago, Joliet Catholic boasted a middle infield that was without peer. The combination of shortstop Dave Cladis and second baseman Nick Ratajczak was as sound with the leather as you will see in high school baseball. In different ways, both also were major contributors offensively, helping lead the Hilltoppers to the 2009 Class 3A state championship their senior year. Here we are five years later, and JCA coach Jared Voss trots out another combination you have to feel is as good as it gets. We speak of junior shortstop Mitch Boe and senior second baseman Rylan Bannon. Excellent baseball was the rule Friday night when the Hilltoppers blanked Lockport, 2-0, on Military Appreciation Night at Ed Flink Field. My scoresheet was rather simple, easy to read. Each side had three hits and only two batters walked. They left seven runners on base combined. There was one error in the game and Bannon and Boe teamed for two double plays, a 4-6-3 and a 6-4-3. Both were turned with confidence and efficiency. Each time Lockport batters hit a ball well in the air, junior center fielder Nick Dalesandro got a good jump and used his speed to make what could have been difficult play look routine. “Whenever you talk about our best infield defenses, you start with Ratajczak and Cladis,” Voss said. “This one is right up there with them. “Then you have Dalesandro in center field. Like they say, it all starts up the middle and right there we have three Division I players.” Bannon will play next season for Xavier in Cincinnati. Boe has not decided on a college, but D-I schools are interested. Dalesandro is bound for Purdue. Ratajczak, incidentally, enjoyed an outstanding col-

JCA’s shortstop Mitch Boe fields the ground ball Friday for the out at first base in Lockport. Boe and second baseman Rylan Bannon have been a solid force for the Hilltoppers in the infield. legiate career at Florida Gulf Coast and Louisville. He is on the roster of the Washington Wild Things, an opponent of the Joliet Slammers in the Frontier League. Bannon, the right-handed hitting leadoff man, ignited JCA’s two-run first inning against Lockport when he doubled to deep right field on the game’s first pitch. He also hit a long double to right-center in the third. “Rylan hitting two balls off the wall, he’s got some pop in his bat,” Voss said. “He gets the other team’s attention right out of the box. He’s like a Rickey Henderson. That’s why he is hitting leadoff. He would hit in the three-hole for some teams.” Lockport coach Andy Satunas called Bannon “quite the pest. He puts pressure on you.” Bannon broke his thumb at this stage of the season a year ago and was not available for the Hilltoppers’ march to the Class 3A state championship. The left-handed hitting Boe, the No. 2 man in Voss’ lineup, played second base last season when JCA’s best all-around player, Chris Tschida (now at Western Illinois), was the shortstop.

JCA’s second baseman Rylan Bannon fields the ground ball during Friday’s game against Lockport. “I got back to playing last summer,” Bannon said. “I’m having fun now. I’m not exactly tearing it up at the plate, but I’m not doing too bad.” As much as Bannon enjoys causing havoc offensively, defense does not take a back seat. In addition to being involved in the two double plays Friday, he also charged a slow roller and made a good off-balance throw to retire Lockport leadoff man Lorenzo Blazekovich to open the fourth

inning. “We’re in a good position,” Bannon said. “We’re

playing strong and our pitching is taking over. Our pitching has been unreal. I love running around playing defense behind good pitching.” With Mike Quiram at third base and Aaron Markley at first, the infield defense indeed is primed to support the Hilltoppers’ potentially dominant pitching staff. Dalesandro, sophomore Drake Fellows and senior Kyle Polaski are the big three, but as senior righthander Brandon Kaminski showed Friday, the staff is deep. Lemont and Lincoln-Way West are assigned to the 3A regional JCA will host in late May. Imagine that two of those three will not play beyond the regional level. What a shame.

Roark’s gem In case you missed it, Willmington graduate Tanner Roark pitched his first major league complete game Saturday, a three-hit shutout, as Washington blanked visiting San Diego Padres, 4-0. Roark (2-0) walked one and struck out eight. He threw 105 pitches and extended his scoreless innings streak to 18. He retired the first 16 Padres and received a standing ovation when Padres catcher Rene Rivera singled with one out in the sixth to spoil the perfect game and no-hit bid. In his career at Nationals Park, Roark has allowed one earned run in 35 innings.

Lewis’ NCAA bid part of 10-year process Lewis falls, 3-1, in MIVA final to No. 1 seed Loyola By DENNIS NELSON

Shaw Media Correspondent


File photo by Michael DiNovo for Shaw Media

Lewis’ BJ Boldog dives for a dig Wednesday against Ball State at Lewis University in Romeoville. Boldog is the only senior Lewis will lose after this season. er the Flyers would qualify for the NCAA Tournament. “We’ve been in the MIVA final three years in a row, won the league in 2012 and taken some tremendous steps over the last 10 years.” When he learned Sunday of Lewis’ at-large bid for this week’s NCAA Tournament, Friend said, “I am excited for the team and the program to continue to play for a shot at the national championship. The team has battled through a lot of tough matches and their body of work has put us in this position.” After the NCAA tourney, the Flyers will lose one regular to graduation, senior setter BJ Boldog. Scott Fifer, who performed well when Boldog was injured midway through the season, could take over the position next year. “It’s been great to be a part of it and we’ll be ready [for the NCAA tourney],” Boldog said. “This is a tribute to coach and his recruiting, how he coaches and the guys in the gym who want to work hard and get better.” Lewis’ roster features three players from California, two from Florida and others from Washington, New York and even China. “I’ve been here five years because I redshirted my fresh-

man year and the talent level has improved every year and we’ve taken steps forward every year,” Boldog said. Lewis will return four all-MIVA selections next season in Powell, Petty, junior libero Lucas Yanez and sophomore middle blocker Bobby Walsh. “Unfortunately, we will lose BJ and he’s been a big part of that,” Friend said of Boldog, who has dished out nearly 1,000 assists this year and 4,344 for his career. “We’ve got a great group coming back among Geoff, Greg, Bob, Fit and those guys who have been around, so the bar is going to be set high next year, too. Those guys know what has to happen between now and the start of next year.” “We will lose our three-time All-American setter, which is going to be tough,” Powell said of Boldog, who has set up Powell for most of his nearly 1,000 career kills. “But we will keep fighting [this week and beyond]. “We have a lot of guys working hard in the gym and a lot of returnees. We’ll come back next year even harder than we played tonight.” Of course, there’s that other matter to take care of first. The Flyers are three victories from a national championship.

CHICAGO – The No. 11 Lewis men’s volleyball team battled but fell to No. 1 Loyola 3-1 (16-25, 25-27, 25-21, 21-25) Saturday night at Gentile Arena in the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association Tournament final. However, the Flyers (23-7) learned Sunday that despite the loss, they have earned a spot in the six-team national finals, which will be played this week at Loyola. The fourth-seeded Flyers meet No. 5 Penn State (24-6) at 8 p.m. Tuesday. The winner will face No. 1 Loyola (27-1) Thursday night in the semifinals. The Lewis offense was led by redshirt junior outside hitter Geoff Powell, who posted 22 kills, four digs and two aces while fellow outside hitter Greg Petty collected 10 putaways, two aces and three block assists. Redshirt senior setter BJ Boldog had 44 assists, four digs and four block assists. Sophomore middle blocker Bobby Walsh added seven total kills. “It was a tough, back-andfourth match,” Lewis coach Dan Friend said. “We did some good things with our block defense but ultimately our first touches broke down.” In the first set, Loyola came out hot, swinging at a .652 clip while the Flyers posted a .231 hitting percentage.

The Flyers held the lead most of the second set, but a three-point swing by the Ramblers allowed Loyola to tie the match at 22. The squads were knotted up three more times, the last at 25 before the Ramblers collected a putaway by Cody Caldwell and a Lewis error to take a 2-0 set lead. Powell collected the first two points of the third set for the Flyers to tally his 1,000th career kill. Lewis extended its lead to 5-0 before forcing Loyola to burn a timeout. Lewis kept the momentum rolling, swinging at a .360 clip and collecting 13 kills with four errors in 25 attempts with 5.5 team blocks to keep Loyola at bay as the Ramblers only hit at .179 percentage. In the fourth set, the teams were tied six times, the last at 20 when the Flyers picked up the point on a Rambler attack error. Loyola regrouped and used a 5-1 run to put the set and match away. Powell, Boldog and Walsh were named to the MIVA All-Tournament Team. Loyola had four tally double-figure kills, led by Cody Caldwell’s 19 putaways. Owen McAndrews and Thomas Jaeschke each collected 14 kills while Joe Smalzer chipped in 12. Peter Hutz dished out a matchhigh 56 assists, while libero Peter Jaseaitis had 13 digs and seven assists.

CHICAGO – Since the inception of collegiate men’s volleyball, it has grown substantially each year. The same can be said of the Lewis University program. Although Lewis dropped a 3-1 decision to No. 1-ranked Loyola on Saturday in the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association final, the Flyers did earn a bid to the six-team NCAA Tournament. They are the No. 4 seed and will face No. 5 Penn State in the second play-in game Tuesday night at Loyola. The Flyers are 23-7, their fourth straight 20-plus win campaign, and were ranked No. 11 in the country in the most recent rankings. All this comes roughly a decade after Lewis voluntarily forfeited the 2003 national championship after an investigation found ineligible participants. That’s when Dan Friend was hired to clean up the mess and repair the damage. He has done that and more, and Lewis has been ranked among the top 25 for 64 straight weeks. “Unfortunately, the program had a hiccup, and since then we’ve gotten it back into national prominence,” said Friend, who is 194-109 in 10 seasons. “That’s attributed to the guys who were on the floor [Saturday] and some alumni I recruited over the years who were a big part of pushing the program where it needed to go. Now, it’s about getting a little better and putting our stamp on a couple of things.” The program is predicated on defense and balance on offense. This season, the Flyers are among the top in the nation in blocking and digging. Three players have totaled 200 or more kills this season – junior Geoff Powell (403), junior Greg Petty (345) and junior Eric Fitterer (203). “I think our program is headed in the right direction,” said Friend, who spoke Saturday night unsure of wheth-

Bulls head home facing elimination By JOE COWLEY WASHINGTON – Put it on Carlos Boozer. With Wizards forward Nene suspended for Game 4, the $15 million man should have been able to muscle his way to more than eight points and five fouls in 24 minutes. Throw it on the entire starting unit, which allowed a young, upstart team to grab the momentum while taking a 14-0 lead before the Bulls even realized that the national anthem was finished. Point at D.J. Augustin, who picked up three quick fouls that rendered his afternoon to 22 minutes of waste. Pick a Bulls player not named Taj Gibson and rip him for the 98-89 loss to the Wizards on Sunday because there was plenty of blame to go around. Then calmly take a breath and realize that it’s almost over. The frustration, the disappointment of the 2013-14 season, it’s all set to end Tuesday at the United Center, unless the Bulls can show some life down 3-1 in the best-of-seven

Holy Cross drops USF into share of CCAC lead STAFF REPORTS JOLIET – Holy Cross pitcher Darwing Ereu threw eight scoreless innings and went 3 for 4 with a pair of RBIs as the visiting Saints defeated St. Francis, 8-2, in Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference action Sunday at Silver Cross Field. The loss dropped USF (3218, 20-5 CCAC) into a tie with Judson for the best record in the CCAC heading into the final two games of the league schedule. USF will take on Cardinal Stritch on Tuesday afternoon in Milwaukee, while Judson will host Calumet College of St. Joseph on Tuesday night. USF junior Adam Panayotovich (7-3) took the loss, allowing 11 hits and eight runs, six earned, in seven innings. Junior catcher Mario Hernandez reached base all four trips to the plate, going 2 for 2 with two walks. The loss was the third in 19 home games for the Saints.

Readiness to play is me. They have to do their job. They have to get out there, they have to execute. I’ve got to have them ready, and so that’s disappointing and it’s got to change. It’s got to change, or our season will be over.’’ Even more disappointing was that Gibson’s career-high

32 points became almost uneventful. He appeared to be the only Bulls big man who understood he needed to attack the Wizards up front without Nene. “I feel like we didn’t take advantage of it,’’ Gibson said. “I feel like we were too relaxed. In this league, you can’t be relaxed. Just because one of their starters is out, you’ve got to have that dog mentality. You’ve got to step on their necks right away.’’

CHICAGO – Andrew Shaw wore a swollen right eye. “[Blues forward Steve] Ott finishing his hit,” Shaw said with a shrug. “That’s all.” Patrick Sharp wore a slash mark across the bottom of his handsome face. “Right in the chin,” Sharp said. Duncan Keith wore a dark red scar across the inside of his right leg. “I’ve got a few cuts and scrapes,” Keith said. “That’s playoff hockey.” As for Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews, well, no obvious wounds were visible. But they certainly existed Sunday after the Hawks knocked out the St. Louis Blues with a 5-1 win in Game 6 of the Western Conference quarterfinals. Spill the beans, captain. What was your best souvenir from the series? Any cuts, bruises, scrapes to show off? “No,” Toews said with a sly grin. “None that I want to talk about.” Got it. The Hawks’ captain has zero bumps and bruises, everybody. (Wink, wink.) What a game. What a series. What a sport. The Hawks erased a 2-0 series deficit to win four consecutive games against the Blues, who now will chase birdies and eagles while their division rivals continue to chase another Stanley Cup championship. Next up for the Hawks will be whichever team wins the series between the Colorado Avalanche and Minnesota Wild. “[We’re going to] get some couch time and relax,” Hawks forward Bryan Bickell said, “and watch the games and see who we play.” The Hawks have earned some couch time. For that matter, I think all of us have. Hawks coach Joel Quenneville gave his players Monday and Tuesday off as a reward for closing out the series and avoiding a winner-

The Hawks will return to practice Wednesday to prepare for their next opponent. “It’s a long battle in this series,” said Quenneville, whose sleeves were rolled up as if he had just finished chopping wood in the backyard. “But I think the inten-

sity and emotion, getting through this first round, was healthy for our team.” Here’s to a healthy outcome. Both of the Hawks’ possible semifinal opponents are talented, especially the Avalanche. But none will match the big muscles and

bare-knuckles aggression of the Blues, who stapled the Hawks to the boards whenever they had an opportunity. Take Game 6, for example. At various points of the game, Ott slammed into Toews’ left shoulder and crunched the captain against the sideboards, pounced on top of Toews in front of the Blues’ net and hip-checked Toews moments after his goal. “It doesn’t get any more difficult than that, with the physicality of the series, the things that happened the first couple games,” Toews said. “I think there’s maybe some hatred between those two teams. I think you always see those storylines develop throughout a series, but probably especially in this one.” Give credit to the Hawks, then, for keeping their composure in all except for Game 2. Rather than turn the series into a tough guy convention, the Hawks played between the whistles and focused on beating the Blues with speed

and skill. The strategy worked. After the final horn sounded and the Blues lined up to shake hands, it looked as if the Hawks had socked them right in the gut. “This was six games, and it felt like nine games for both teams,” Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. “I’m sure Joel feels the same way. It was a long, hard-fought series, and both teams poured a lot into it.” But only one team could win the series, and it was the same team that is aiming for its third Stanley Cup championship in five seasons. Get ready for more cuts, scrapes and bruises. “I love this,” Shaw said with a big smile beneath that swollen right eye. “I look forward to this all year. If we could just play playoffs all year, I’d love that.”

By SARAH TROTTO The Associated Press CHICAGO – Jose Abreu says he didn’t expect this much success, especially in cold weather. Yet he set another rookie record on Sunday. Abreu drove in four runs and set a major league rookie record for RBIs through the end of April and the White Sox beat the Bay Rays, 9-2, on Sunday. Abreu, who had a two-run home run in the sixth and a two-run single in the seventh, has 31 RBIs to lead the majors. Albert Pujols had the previous rookie RBI mark of 27 in 2001.

Hammel, Carlin shine as Cubs shutout Brewers By GENARO C. ARMAS

65-68-65-71—269 -19


The Associated Press MILWAUKEE – Jason Hammel threw a sinker early in counts to try to entice groundball outs against an aggressive lineup and mixed things up with a fastball in the low 90s. It was an overwhelming combination for the short-handed Brewers. Hammel had a season-high seven strikeouts and allowed three hits in seven scoreless innings, Starlin Castro hit two solo homers and the Cubs snapped a four-game losing streak with a 4-0 win Sunday. Hammel, one of the few bright spots in a dismal April for Chicago, made his impressive work sound easy afterward. He hasn’t given up more than five hits in each of his five starts. “I featured a pretty good sinker down in the zone early to get a lot of ground balls

and just attacked the zone,” he said. “So, that’s really all it was today.” Hammel (4-1) didn’t allow a hit until Carlos Gomez doubled down the left-field line with one out in the sixth. He then got into trouble after walking Scooter Gennett and making an errant pickoff throw to put runners at second and third. But the righty got a strikeout before Aramis Ramirez bounced out to end the threat. “Great, great job. Mixed all his pitches well. Stayed down,” manager Rick Renteria said. The Cubs improved to 8-16, the last team in to get to eight victories. The Cubs scored twice in the second on Castro’s first homer and Darwin Barney’s RBI off starter Wily Peralta (3-1). Castro’s second shot in the eighth off reliever Brandon Kintzler barely cleared the wall in the left-field corner.

THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT DOGS THAT LEAVES AN IMPRESSION.” Claudia Green, evaluator for Therapy Dogs International

LEAVING AN IMPRESSION New Lenox woman evaluates potential therapy dogs that aid people in hospitals, nursing homes By DENISE M. BARAN–UNLAND EW LENOX – Claudia Green’s first step in becoming an evaluator for Therapy Dog International began when Green took her wire fox terrier, Sophie, to visit a friend’s father at Sunny Hill Nursing Home in Joliet. Dementia had caused the man to forget names, but Green, of New Lenox, said he always could remember Sophie’s name. “There’s something about dogs that leaves an impression,” Green said. Two and a half years of visits later, Green decided Sophie could benefit from additional training to bring similar joy to others. Green Googled the term “therapy dogs” and up popped Therapy Dogs International. Sophie, who received her Canine Good Citizenship from the American Kennel Club in 2006, became certified with TDI in 2007, allowing her dog to visit people in nursing homes and hospitals. “For the Canine Good Citizenship, the dog has to sit for inspection, to be petted and they must have their feet touching. They have to sit and stay on command,” Green said. “It’s pretty basic stuff.” Last year, the American Kennel Club added an advanced title – AKC Community Canine – a more comprehensive program. Sophie earned her title two months ago, Green said. Sophie, who was 12 weeks when Green got her in 2003, sees patients at Sunny Hill Nursing Home and Silver


Lathan Goumas –

Brianna Skinner, 9, pets Sophie, a wire fox terrier, during an April 1 visit by the therapy dog to Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox. Claudia Green, Sophie’s owner and trainer, said the 11-year-old dog has been a certified therapy dog since 2007. Skinner, who loves dogs, was in the hospital recovering from a back surgery she had earlier that same day, her mother said. Cross Hospital in New Lenox, Green said. Sophie used to visit at the Manteno Veterans Home, but when Sophie developed epilepsy two years ago, Green pared back the dog’s schedule and consider becoming a TDI evaluator. “I knew a lot of people in this area that wanted their dogs to become therapy dogs,” Green said, “and I wanted them to enjoy what I enjoy with my dog.” Green first realized the needs for local evaluators when she had to go out of her way for Sophie’s evaluation. So, in 2011, Green, who works at K9 Tailshakers in Frankfort as an assistant instructor, applied to TDI and submitted recommendation

letters from an activity aide at Sunny Hill Nursing Home and from the owner and head trainer at the Frankfort facility, Green said. “[TDI] looks at your background and experience,” Green said. “They do send you a handbook, a rule book and a DVD to study. Then you take a written test and send it back to them.” It was a two-and-a-half month process, Green said. The next year, because so many applicants requested it, Green applied to the AKC so she also could evaluate dogs for Canine Good Citizenship. That took less time, about a month, she said. “I did have to fill out a form but I did not have to get

letters of recommendation,” Green said. “The test was slightly easier.” Any breed can potentially be a therapy dog, Green said, noting she’s seen everything from toy poodles to mastiffs. However, hyper dogs, as well as “agitated and nervous dogs,” might not be suitable. The same goes for dogs with separation anxiety. “Even though you seldom leave your dog at a facility, if you have to go to the washroom and ask the volunteer coordinator to please hold her, you don’t want the dog going berserk,” Green said. Dogs must be at least 1 year old. No age is too old. The time a dog requires to learn the TDI testing re-

quirements vary from dog to dog, she said. Applicants may download the testing requirements from the website at Some dogs pick up new concepts quicker than others, she said. Working with a trainer is helpful, but not mandatory. “You just want them to be respectful to people and bonded to the handler,” Green said. Green tests the dogs at K9 Tailshakers, as Green likes its large training area. TDI does not allow Green to evaluate dogs in the handler’s home, she said. Most dogs come prepared; rarely does Green flunk one, and when she does, it’s most commonly for “food refusal.” A good therapy dog, Green said, will not accept food from anyone except the handler and only with permission. He may not sniff it; he may not even look at it. “I don’t just use dog treats. I use hot dogs and cheese,” Green said. “It’s hard for dogs to resist.” It’s a safety issue, Green said. What if a nursing home or hospital patient accidentally drops medicine on the floor or tries to feed the dog ice cream from the food tray? She gave an example. One day, at home, Green recalled, she opened a bottle of ibuprofen and the pills spilled onto the floor. Sophie bounded into the room; Green said, “No,” and Sophie sat and waited while Green picked up the pills. “I live alone, so I eat in my recliner in front of the TV,” Green said. “If I set my tray on the floor and go into the kitchen for something, my food is never touched.”

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

• Monday, April 28, 2014


Partner opens, say, one heart, the next player passes, and you respond two spades. What are you showing? There are typically two answers to that question: a weak or strong hand. A weak jump shift shows a six-card suit and some 4-8 high-card points. But this week, let’s look at the strong variety. In the old days, a strong jump shift promised 17-19 points. However, it is much better to use a 13-16-point range: sufficient to insist on game, but then wanting partner to decide whether to go higher. (More on why tomorrow.) The responder has one of two hand-types: an excellent one-suiter with six or more cards in his suit, or a good two-suiter with five or six cards in his own suit and four or five in partner’s suit. With the two-suiter, he rebids in partner’s suit. With the one-suiter, responder does something else, usually rebidding in his suit or in no-trump. In this deal, South learns all about his partner’s hand and should have no trouble settling into seven no-trump. After West leads the diamond queen, how should declarer play? South can count 14(!) tricks via five spades, five hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. The only danger is a 4-0 spade break. But declarer can avoid a loser whatever the position as long as he starts with dummy’s ace (or king). This keeps one high honor in each hand to capture an opponent’s lower honor (the jack). South can finesse either way to stop that jack from taking a trick.

Help to curb child abuse by recognizing its symptoms Dear Abby: Child abuse is epidemic in the United States. It occurs at every socioeconomic level, across ethnic and cultural levels, within all religions and at all levels of education. Every year, more than 3 million reports of child abuse are made in the U.S. Without intervention, about 30 percent of those abused and neglected children will later abuse their own children. With the proper skills, all parents can raise happy, healthy children. Treatment is necessary, but our communities also need to do a better job at prevention. April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Please ask your readers to learn about programs and activities in their communities that sup-

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips port parents and promote healthy families. – John E.

Thoresen, Director, Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center, Rancho Mirage, Calif. Dear Mr. Thoresen: Thank you for your letter. Readers, the first step to curbing child abuse is recognizing it. These are the 10 most common indicators: 1. Unexplained injuries: Visible signs might include burns or bruises in the shape of objects. There might be unconvincing explanations for a child’s injuries. 2. Changes in behavior:

Abused children often appear scared, anxious, depressed, withdrawn or more aggressive. 3. Returning to earlier behavior: Abused children might display behaviors shown when they were younger, such as thumb-sucking, bed-wetting, fear of the dark or strangers. For some, loss of basic language or memory problems might occur. 4. Fear of going home: Abused children might express fear or anxiety about leaving school or going places with the abuser. 5. Changes in eating: The stress, fear and anxiety lead to changes in a child’s eating behaviors, which might result in weight gain or weight loss. 6. Changes in sleep habits:

Healthy diet reduces heart disease risk by over 70 percent Dear Dr. K: What are the basic tenets of a heart-healthy diet? Dear Reader: I once had a patient who had a history of heart disease in his family. When he first came to see me, he was in his late 20s. He knew having heart disease in his family put him at higher risk for it later in life. He told me he had decided to do something to protect himself: He had consulted a cardiologist. As for his lifestyle, he had done nothing. Zip. Nada. Hadn’t changed his diet and never exercised. Of course he had heard (“ad nauseam,” he said) advice from his doctor and from people (like me) who write about a healthy lifestyle. “I first heard that stuff from my kindergarten teacher,” he said, “and I’ve been hearing it ever since.” But he thought it was all sanctimonious preaching. It’s not sanctimonious preaching; it’s solid science. There are thousands of studies, involving hundreds of thousands of people, whose diets and health histories have been catalogued over (collectively) millions of years. What do those studies say? A heart-healthy diet might reduce your risk of a heart attack by 73 percent compared to a typical American diet of meat, cheese

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff and high-fat desserts. What do I mean by “hearthealthy diet”? Here are the basics: • Watch your fats. Eliminate trans fats from your diet. Limit saturated fat. • Choose whole grains. Replace refined carbohydrates (such as white bread and white rice) with whole-grain varieties. • Eat meat sparingly. Relegate meat to a minor part of your diet. Avoid fatty cuts of beef, pork and lamb. Instead, choose lean meats, or substitute fish or skinless white-meat poultry. • Opt for low-fat dairy products. Avoid dairy foods that contain whole milk or cream. • Choose healthy cooking oils. Use liquid cooking oils rather than butter or margarine. Good choices include canola, sunflower, safflower, corn, soybean, olive and peanut oils. • Reduce dietary cholesterol. Strive to eat less than 200 mg of dietary cholesterol a day. (On my website, www.askdoctork. com, I’ve put a table listing the amount of cholesterol in several

common foods.) • Eat more fiber. Emphasize foods that are low in calories and high in fiber, such as fruits and vegetables, whole-grain products and legumes (dried beans and peas). Eat more water-soluble fiber, such as that found in oat bran and fruits. • Go for nuts. Nuts are associated with a lower risk of heart disease. But they have lots of calories, so watch your portions. • Add fish to your diet. Oily fish such as mackerel and salmon contain heart-healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. • Reduce salt intake. High-salt diets increase your risk of high blood pressure, a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. • Drink alcohol only in moderation. That means no more than one drink a day for women, and one or two drinks a day for men. If you want to reduce your risk of heart disease by more than 70 percent, this is how to do it. I finally convinced my patient of this, and he is a trim and healthy 80-year-old today. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

The child might have frequent nightmares or have difficulty falling asleep, and appear tired or fatigued. 7. Changes in school performance or attendance: Children might demonstrate difficulty concentrating in school or experience excessive absences, sometimes because of adults trying to hide the children’s injuries from authorities. 8. Lack of personal care or hygiene: The child might appear unkempt, be consistently dirty and have severe body odor, or lack sufficient clothing for the weather. 9. Risk-taking behaviors: The child might engage in highrisk activities such as using drugs or alcohol, or carrying a weapon. 10. Inappropriate sexual

behavior: A sexually abused child might exhibit overly sexualized behavior or use explicit sexual language. We can all support children and parents to reduce the stress that often leads to abuse and neglect. Be a friend to a parent or child you know. Volunteer your time or donate to programs that support child abuse treatment and prevention as well as those that build healthy families. Trust your instincts. Suspected abuse is enough of a reason to contact authorities. • Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.
