Plainfield village board OKs historic beacon installation By VIKAAS SHANKER PLAINFIELD – The Plainfield village board Monday approved the installation of a historic 53-foot tall beacon on the corner of Lockport Street and Wood Farm Road, while also voicing opposition to the concept plan for an apartment development along Route 30. The beacon was associated with the “Air Mail” service in the 1920s and was used by Charles Lindbergh when he delivered mail for Robertson Air Mail Company on flights between St. Louis and Chicago, according to a village report. “The most interesting part seems to be the top,” said Trustee Bill Lamb, adding that he would like to see the beacon be secured so people don’t climb on it and cause a safety hazard. The beacon was originally at the Universal Wireless property on 127th Street, but was relocated to the Boughton Farm on Book Road. The Will County Forest Preserve has required the beacon to be removed from

the property. It will be installed on property owned by the Plainfield Historical Society near the railroad tracks on Lockport Street. The beacon would be secured with a fence and will contain motion sensored lights so it will light up if people try to climb it. While the beacon matter was passed unanimously, several trustees had issues with the concept plan for a new apartment development on the southeast corner of 147th Street and Wallin Drive during a workshop session. The plan calls for converting 19.14 acres of commercially zoned land into residential for a 300-unit apartment site. The site would consist of 16 to 26 residential buildings but still contain six commercial lots along 147th Street and Wallin Drive. Trustees Garrett Peck, Margie Bonuchi and Jim Racich said they would not support the concept because the village’s comprehensive plan calls for the site to be zoned a commercial district. “For us to just change the comp plan because the applicant wants us to change

something that’s already going to be zoned commercial to high-density residential, it’s not going to fly with me,” Peck said. Bonuchi said the village has few industrial or commercial corridors, so it’s important to keep the site zoned commercial. The owners of the property, Synergy Property Holding, LLC, contend that they have been trying to sell lots on the site to the commercial market for the past 13 years, but there is very little interest. Citizens First National Bank, Wallin Mini Mart and Aurelio’s Pizza are the only vendors on the property. “The comp plan does talk about having a healthy mix of housing units for the village and downtown,” said Patti Bernhardt, the attorney for Synergy, also telling the board residents of the apartments would utilize walking and bike paths to downtown. But Racich debated that claim, saying many people will drive cars anyway and questioning the need for more residential construction. “I still contend that’s a myth,” Racich said.

Black Road bridgework nearly done By BILL WIMBISCUS JOLIET – Work on the Black Road bridge over the DuPage River should be finished in June, but down the road there’s more bridgework coming on Caton Farm Road. Work on the Black Road bridge, which began June 27, is expected to be completed sometime next month, according to the Will County Division of Transportation’s list 2014 projects. The $2.35 million project included deck and structural replacement on the bridge, which has been reduced to two lanes of traffic for the last 10 months. Joliet plans to remove and replace the existing DuPage River bridge deck on Caton

Farm Road no later than summer or fall of 2016. The project will cost about $4 million, with 80 percent of the project funded by federal money, according to Jim Trizna, Joliet’s director of public works “It will take about 6

months,” Trizna said. “We hope to do it in one construction season.” During construction, traffic on Caton Farm Road will be reduced from four lanes to two, with one lane of traffic in each direction. Traffic on all four lanes will be re-established after the project is completed. “There’s more traffic on Caton Farm then on Black, so it will be a little nastier,” Trizna said. The first phase of the project will focus on the north half of the bridge, the second on the south half. Access to Lily Cache Road from Caton Farm Road will be closed to traffic for approximately three months during the first phase. Lily Cache Road traffic will be detoured onto Route 59 and Rolf Road.

Joliet commuters share the pros and cons of bicycle commuting By LAUREN LEONE–CROSS JOLIET – Mark Karner’s demanding desk job – and his moral opposition to paying $4 a gallon for gas – is what first motivated the 49-year-old from Joliet to switch out his car for a bike most days to get to work. He started commuting to work on bike in 2008 – largely because he didn’t like the idea of paying so much to fill up his tank each week. At that time, his office was located in Lockport – about a 20-mile round trip from his Joliet home. Now, his ride is much shorter since his office relocated to Joliet, but he said that doesn’t stop him from seeing the benefits. “I definitely try to take my time and enjoy the commute for what it is,” Karner said of his 5-minute bike ride each morning from his home to the Edward Jones office on West Jefferson Street, where he works as a financial adviser. “It also allows me to clear my head and get my thoughts organized before the start of the day.” Karner is being joined by thousands of others across the U.S. this week in celebration of Bike-to-Work Week, which runs through Friday. It’s part of a national effort, endorsed by the U.S. Department of Transportation, to highlight the benefits of bicycling, and to prove it’s possible – and even practical – to leave the car at home. But how practical is it to bike to work, school or to even run a simple errand in Joliet or to neighboring areas? Give or take several busy intersections, highways and the occasional aggressive driver, Joliet’s accessibility

for bicyclists has improved somewhat over the years with increased awareness and the creation of recreational trails, said Bill Lang, a longtime member of the Joliet Bicycle Club. Lang, 65, commuted on bike from the west side of Joliet to his job with the Elgin, Joliet and Eastern Railway Company as often as he could from 1971 until he retired in 2002. “Black Road, when I first started riding to work, was a narrow two-lane road. I’ve watched it progress to a fourlane,” he said. But the area still has problems, he said. “Jefferson Street remains virtually unrideable. Another major problem is getting over the interstates. There are no good roads for that,” he said. His advice to novices testing out their two wheels for Bike-to-Work Week? It’s better to take side streets or alternative routes to major roadways when possible, he said, even though it may add to the person’s total travel time. “Pick a route first. Explore the route, too, even if you have to drive your car to do it. Test it out first. Try different ways until you find a route that works best for you,” Lang said. Karner and Lang are both

Mark Karner of Joliet prepares to bicycle to a doctor’s appointment and then to work Thursday. thrilled about a recently approved state grant that allows the Will County Forest Preserve District to create a bike-and-pedestrian bridge over Interstate 55 and the DuPage River near Black Road. The connection would link the DuPage River Trail in Shorewood with the Rock Run Greenway Trail in Joliet, and eventually other trails that Karner and his bicyclist friends frequent. Currently, the only way to get across I-55 and the DuPage River is to walk along a thin, concrete shoulder close to oncoming traffic, Karner said. “When we have a group of people riding together, because we’re in such close quarters, we take up the entire lane so nobody attempts to squeeze by us and possibly hit us,” Karner said. “There is safety in numbers. We’re a little more visible and we’ve got

a little more of a presence. We consider ourselves vehicles. We use hand signals and all wear helmets.” The eventual linking of trails across I-55 and the DuPage River is great news for the community, said Ralph Schultz, director of planning and operations for the Will County Forest Preserve District. “For example, someone who lives on the west side of the river, say in Shorewood or even on the West Side of Joliet, could bicycle from their home down the DuPage River Trail, cross over and get to Joliet Junior College. They could go to the Joliet Public Library and get there safely,” Schultz said. More improvements for bicyclists who either commute or enjoy the occasional ride are on the way, he said. The creation of a multimod-

al transportation center in downtown Joliet will eventually serve as a convergence point for bike parking and rental options for a number of the forest preserve district’s major bike trails, including the I&M Canal, Wauponsee and Old Plank Road trails, he said. The $42-million project is expected to integrate several land-based transportation modes, including bicycles, to one central facility adjacent to Joliet’s Union Station. The city broke ground on the project in late 2012. “We see bicycling as a legitimate form of transportation and we want to encourage that,” Schultz said. “With this new center, if you’re riding, let’s say, from New Lenox from the Old Plank Road Trail, it’s going to take you right to the train station. That’s a real benefit to us and to bicyclists.”

Wind damage to Joliet motel happened fast By BRIAN STANLEY JOLIET – Robert Troyer looked out of his room on the second floor of the Best Budget Inn as the wind picked up during the storms that blew through the area Sunday evening. “I thought, ‘Wow. It’s windy.’ Then I went to the window and saw just how windy it was,” the maintenance engineer said. He said the debris that began falling from the two-story building came down “straight instead of blowing around.” “I heard a rumble and ran into the bathroom. It was all over in 20 seconds,” Troyer said. The debris included concrete beams, boards and parts of the roof from the motel at 4200 W. Jefferson St. that was built in the 1960s as a Howard Johnson. The damage was concentrated on the southwest side of the main L-shaped building. While the “top of the letter” is torn up, the shorter side, which ends in an A-frame lobby, is fine. Maintenance engineer Brian Renas said it appears the air-conditioning unit on the building in the center of the L that houses the indoor pool was torn apart. “Looks like we’ve got the start of a nice tree house,” Renas said while looking at a board that had lodged about 10 feet above the ground in a nearby tree. “You have to laugh, it was

Strong winds in Sunday night’s storm blew the roof off the Best Budget Inn in Joliet. a long night,” he said. No injuries were reported from the damage that occurred about 6:43 p.m. About 80 rooms were occupied in the motel Sunday night. Many rooms in the damaged area housed long-term residents, several of whom keep pets. One car in the parking lot got

a cracked windshield. Two witnesses said one man fled out of a second-floor window while police were knocking on the door of each room right after the storm. He was not immediately pursued as police kept checking on people in the motel. Renas and other employees

drove guests to local motels Sunday night. The desk clerk told callers Monday morning the motel will likely be closed for the rest of the week. Weather sirens were activated when the winds reached speeds over 60 miles per hour, which Joliet Emergency Management Director

Greg Sebben said is standard protocol. Sebben and Joliet Weather Center Director Jeremy Hylka said it appears the strong wind, but not a tornado, was responsible for the damage at the motel. Hylka said a barn in New Lenox also was damaged Sunday night.

Police: Man awaiting sentence for shooting fires again By BRIAN STANLEY JOLIET – A man has been arrested for allegedly doing a drive-by shooting – the day after he pleaded guilty to another drive-by shooting. Lt. Brian Dupuis said Dillon R. Adair, 18, was spotted about 7:30 p.m. Saturday at

the Buffalo Wild Wings in Shorewood. He was taken into custody with the help of Shorewood police. Adair had been sought since a warrant was issued April 2 charging him with aggravated battery and aggravated discharge of a firearm. Adair, of the 200 block of North Eastern Avenue, is be-

ing held in the county jail on $100,000 bond. Witnesses said at about 7 p.m. March 29, Adair was riding in the 400 block of Herkimer Street when he shot a man three times. The victim’s injuries were not life-threatening, Dupuis said. “This was a gang-related

shooting,” Dupuis said. It occurred the day after Adair pleaded guilty to aggravated discharged of a firearm in a July 2013 incident, according to court records. Other weapons charges were dropped in exchange for the plea. In the 2013 incident, an 18-year-old man was walking in the 400 block of South State

Street when Adair drove up in a stolen SUV and opened fire with a .22-caliber pistol, according to police reports. The victim was not struck and ran away, and Adair was arrested later that afternoon. Adair faces up to 15 years in prison when he is sentenced for the 2013 shooting next month.

Federal economic study looks at Joliet By LAUREN LEONE–CROSS Joliet is “working hard” to move away from its longstanding reputation as a tired, old Rust Belt prison town. That’s according to a study released earlier this month by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. The Industrial City Initiative study looked at 10 industrial Midwest cities where a post-recession loss of manufacturing jobs continues to shape economic, demographic and social trends. According to the study, about 70 percent of Joliet jobs are now spread across seven industries – with front-runners health care/social assistance and retail trade making up 35 percent of all jobs. That’s a stark contrast from 1970, when more than a third of the city’s population was employed in manufacturing. Historically, Joliet has relied on companies such as U.S. Steel and Caterpillar to create quality jobs, yet the study points out that manufacturing jobs over the coming decade are expected to decrease, with projections showing growth in output but not jobs.

Joliet has been working to diversify its employment base since suffering a loss of manufacturing jobs, Joliet Mayor Tom Giarrante said. Success hinges on the development and completion of several major projects, he said. Giarrante said the completion of a $42 million multi-modal transportation center in downtown Joliet offers great promise to the city and its surrounding areas. It is also expected to bring much needed construction, retail and office jobs, he said. A one-mile radius around the center is economically distressed, with a 22-percent poverty level, which is fairly high compared to Joliet’s overall average of 10 percent, the study noted. Giarrante said the creation of the center could help offset the area’s high unemployment and poverty rates. “We figure it’ll draw more retail and provide more jobs to the people living in the area who maybe don’t have transportation to get them to a job. There would be ones there that they can walk to,” Giarrante said. “It would definitely help the people living in the immediate area. No

question about it.” Despite challenges, the study notes Joliet has opportunity to capitalize on its commuter-distance location to Chicago, potential highspeed rail development and expansion of trucking intermodal facilities.

Manufacturing is not dead The city’s manufacturing industry is far from dead, the study notes. The expansion of the CenterPoint intermodal industrial park in Joliet, where freight is transferred between train and trucks, is key to improving the county’s position in the global chain supply. The expansion of both that intermodal yard and the one in Elwood is expected to create roughly 5,400 direct intermodal and industrial jobs, the study states. The city’s potential to be a global supply chain is huge for Joliet, the study states. The study concluded Joliet is not without challenges but possesses several assets and is well-positioned to take advantage of advancements in transportation with the creation of the downtown facility and expansion of the two intermodal yards.

Woman accused of selling drugs out of Harrah’s Casino hotel room By BRIAN STANLEY JOLIET – Police say a Lockport woman was dealing drugs Friday from a hotel room at Harrah’s Casino. Cmdr. Al Roechner said police were called to the hotel at 11:17 p.m. after employees and agents from the State Gaming Board were ejecting people who had created a disturbance. “As they were being removed, one man said drugs were being sold from a hotel room on the sixth floor and an

agent and employee went to investigate,” Roechner said. A man who had not rented the room answered the door, while the agent was able to see white powder on a table inside, Roechner said. The man called Christine L. Korczak, 45, who had rented the room and asked her to come back to it, Roechner said. “She was told they would have to leave and took one of the two purses inside the room saying the other wasn’t hers,” Roechner said. When Korczak allegedly

changed her story and claimed the other purse, the gaming agent looked inside to check for identification, Roechner said. “Besides her driver’s license there were baggies containing six grams of heroin, two grams of cocaine and [prescription] pills,” Roechner said. Korczak, of the 900 block of East Eighth Street in Lockport, was arrested on four counts of drug possession, delivery of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

zoning district. Several people who came to an April 8 hearing feared it would negatively impact existing thrift stores while others thought it would increase business at their stores. City Administrator Ben Benson said city officials had no issue with The Salvation Army itself. “They just felt at this time they weren’t looking for an additional thrift store in Lockport,” he said about the council’s decision.

Water main replacement project City officials decided to enter into an agreement with Strand Associates to complete plans and specifications for a water main replacement project at Boehme and State Street for $59,940. Water main breaks and poor water quality troubled residents in the area, according to city records. A two-phase project is planned for the water main replacement. In fall 2014, phase one will include replacement of the rear yard water main from the residential back yard easement to the Boehme Street right-of-away, city records stated. In spring 2015, phase two would include water main replacement on State Street.

3 candidates filing early By BILL WIMBISCUS

Mihelich also spoke of the need for the mayor to act as an ambassador. He held a rally for Caterpillar at his campaign headquarters after news leaked out that the company’s chief executive hinted the company might move its headquarters from Illinois O’Dekirk, a former police officer who is now a lawyer, was one of four newcomers elected to the Joliet City Council in 2011. O’Dekirk said his experience in dealing with Giarrante during his three years on the council prompted his decision to run for mayor. “I got in because there was a groundswell of people urging me to do it,” O’Dekirk said. “I didn’t want to play games, so I made the decision just to do it.” As the incumbent, Giarrante said he expects to draw a lot of criticism from his opponents. “I’ve got a record and, as you know, you’re never going to please everybody,” said Giarrante, who served JOLIET – The last time there was a mayoral election, nine people ran for Joliet’s top spot. Now, with the election still 11 months away, three candidates already have thrown their hats in the ring. Andrew Mihelich, chairman of the Joliet Junior College Board of Trustees, confirmed last week that he will challenge Mayor Tom Giarrante in the April 7, election. District 2 Councilman Robert O’Dekirk announced earlier this year that he, too, is running. Mihelich has not responded to repeated requests for an interview from The Herald-News since Friday, although he did confirm he was running. During his 2011 campaign, issues that Mihelich talked about included holding the line on taxes and having a realistic salary and benefits structure for city workers.

for 14 years on the City Council and six years on the Joliet Park Board before becoming mayor. Despite the large number of candidates, the off-year 2011 election drew only an 18.9 percent turnout. In Joliet, 15,156 people cast votes in the mayoral election. Because the vote was split among nine candidates, Giarrante won with only 26 percent of the vote. The top three finishers in that election were Giarrante, Councilwoman Jan Quillman and then-Councilman Warren Dorris. Mihelich finished fourth. Giarrante said he wouldn’t be surprised if more candidates emerge in the months to come. “I don’t own the seat,” Giarrante said. “If anyone wants to run, let them jump in.” O’Dekirk said he hoped a clear leader will emerge from the 2015 election. “Certainly the voters deserve a choice,” O’Dekirk said. “But I hope whoever wins will get 50 percent of the vote and get a mandate from the voters.”

LOCKPORT – Police in Lockport will welcome a furry, friendly face to their ranks. Joining the department will be a Belgian Malinois dog, which looks similar to a German Shepherd but is smaller and more versatile, Lockport Police Chief Terry Lemming said. Police officials are in the process of choosing the dog for its new K-9 program. “We wanted more of a passive, friendly dog than an aggressive dog because we want to use it for public relations and policing,” he said. The police department received a $12,500 grant from Citgo Lemont Refinery to start the K-9 program after Lemont ended its program because of inefficient staffing. Lockport obtained a K-9 vehicle from Lemont by trading equipment. The Lockport City Council on Wednesday approved the vehicle swap, which made the K-9 program possible. It will take about three months until the K-9 unit in Lockport becomes active, Lemming said. Once the dog is selected, it has to be trained for six weeks and then trained another six weeks with its trainer, who will be patrol officer Andy Ganger. When council members asked Lemming why a K-9 program would be needed in the city, he explained dogs are useful for tracking lost children, people with mental illnesses, dangerous suspects and drugs. “Almost everybody loves dogs,” he said. “Dogs can break the ice in particularly sensitive situations that the police encounter.”

Bolingbrook police make arrest in domestic dispute By BRIAN STANLEY BOLINGBROOK – Police say a man threatened his estranged wife and another man with a knife Friday night. Lt. Mike Rompa said police were called at 12:09 a.m. Saturday to the 1500 block of Somerfield Drive where a 44-year-old woman said she had been attacked. About 11:15 p.m. Friday, Alvin M. Manuel, 43, used the garage code to enter the house where his wife and another man were inside, according to Lt. Mike Rompa. Rompa said Manuel and the woman are legally married, but have been separated for four years.

“[Manuel] started a physical altercation with the victims, then grabbed a knife and threatened them,” Rompa said. Manuel then began damaging property inside while the woman called a family member, Rompa said. When family arrived, Manuel fled, but was taken into custody by police nearby, Rompa said. The woman was not injured. Officers were unable to locate the male victim. Manuel, of the 300 block of Evergreen Drive, was arrested on charges of domestic battery, aggravated assault, aggravated unlawful restraint and interfering with reporting domestic violence.

By VIKAAS SHANKER PLAINFIELD – The house bill that would expand the Plainfield Township Park District board is scheduled for a hearing Wednesday, and sponsor state Sen. Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant, D-Shorewood, is encouraging State Sen. people to lend Jennifer their support. BertinoHouse Bill Tarrant 5593 would ex- D-Shorewood pand the board from five to seven commissioners, with Bertino-Tarrant and state Rep. Tom Cross, R-Oswego, each

picking a new commissioner to serve until the April 2015 elections. The bill was created as a direct reaction to issues surrounding the park district, which has faced lawsuits, violations of labor laws and an ongoing police investigation into accusations made at the board level. The bill passed the Illinois House in March. Bertino-Tarrant said she will present the bill to the Senate Executive Committee at 2 p.m. Wednesday. Both she and park district Commissioner Mary Kay Ludemann are urging people to sign up online as witnesses before the meeting. Anyone can participate by going to the Senate Executive Committee’s hearing website

By BRIAN STANLEY PEOTONE TOWNSHIP – Two people died Friday in separate car crashes. The first collision occurred about 8:15 a.m. on the exit ramp from southbound Interstate 57 to Wilmington-Peotone Road. Will County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said a black 2008 Dodge Avenger driven by Ruth L. Williams, 53, of Chicago, pulled out into the path of a Kenworth tow truck and crashed between the truck and the guardrail. Williams was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:47 a.m. The tow truck driver and his passenger were not injured. The tow truck driver was not ticketed, Hoffmeyer said. About 6:30 p.m. Thomas J. Farrell, 50, left his Peotone home to pick up a pizza from

Casey’s General Store. Farrell was expected back a short time later, but his wife became concerned and called police to report him missing about 9:30 p.m., Hoffmeyer said. “She then called her son who came down from Chicago to retrace his stepfather’s route to the store,” Hoffmeyer said. About 2:40 a.m. Saturday, he found Farrell’s 2007 Chevrolet Malibu had veered off Kennedy Road east of Center Road and gone into Rock Creek. Sheriff’s deputies and emergency personnel arrived to find the car upright in about three feet of water with heavy frontend damage, Hoffmeyer said. “It appears the car hit several large rocks,” Hoffmeyer said. An autopsy performed Saturday by the Will County Coroner’s office showed Farrell died from injuries sustained in the crash.

How to sign up as a proponent, opponent or neutral opinion for House Bill 5593: n Go to n Scroll down to HB5593 and click on the “Create Witness Slip” icon n Enter your identification, representation, position and testimony if provided n Check the “I Agree to the ILGA Terms of Agreement” box and click on “Create(Slip)” and signing up as a proponent, opponent or neutral position to the bill. “Obviously this is a very serious issue,” Bertino-Tarrant said about the tumultu-

ous park district. “It saddens me we even had to initiate this. But it seems to be the only thing we can do to move forward and get the park district on the right track.” If the 15-member committee votes in favor of the bill, it will be brought to the Senate floor for discussion and a vote. If the Senate approves the bill, it would head to Gov. Pat Quinn’s desk to be signed into law. “People can sign up if they support it or oppose it,” Ludemann said. “This is to let the legislators know if there really is support for this in the community or not.” Ludemann and Commissioner Larry Newton tried to pass a resolution for the park district to support the bill

during the last board meeting, but it didn’t pass after Vice President Janet Silosky voted against it. “I’m in favor of enlarging the park district board,” Silosky said. “It’s just a question of how we go about it.” Silosky said she would rather the park district expand the board itself, an action allowed by the Illinois Park District Code, rather than the state government dictating the change. Ludemann said the drawback to that option is the expansion won’t happen until the next spring elections. Resolutions to expand the board and to support the bill are on the agenda for Wednesday’s regular park district meeting.

Two men shot filming video in Joliet By BRIAN STANLEY JOLIET – Two men were shot while they filmed a video Saturday afternoon. Lt. Brian Dupuis said about 4:15 p.m. the victims were in the 100 block of

McDonough Street when two black men in their late teens walked up and began firing. The gunfire alerted police to the area and they stopped a vehicle with a 28-year-old passenger who had been struck in the upper thigh.

He was treated at the hospital for an injury that was not life-threatening, Dupuis said. “Detectives later discovered another 28-year-old man had been shot in his hand, but had fled the scene and gone to the hospital,” Dupuis said.

Body found in vehicle near Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center By BOB OKON JOLIET – A man found dead in a Cadillac parked across the street from Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center apparently shot himself, police said. Police on Monday evening blocked off a section of Springfield Avenue while investigating the death. Police Chief Brian Benton

said later that the man “apparently died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.” The coroner’s office was investigating the death. Police arrived at the scene at about 6 p.m. after getting a call about a man “slumped over in a vehicle,” Benton said The man was “non-responsive” when police arrived. The black Cadillac SUV was in the parking lot of a real

estate office on Springfield Avenue and was parked close to the sidewalk. Several police cars were on the scene, and traffic was directed away from the hospital in the aftermath of the body being found. Benton said there was never any threat to the public. But the street was blocked off for security reasons because the incident was so close to the hospital and police had not yet determined what happened.

Minor flooding on the Mississippi; rain a worry

ST. LOUIS – The Mississippi River is creeping up again, flooding some low-lying roads and agricultural land in parts of Iowa, Illinois and Missouri. Flood watchers say it’s all typical spring flooding, but with rain in the forecast, they’re not taking anything for granted. “We have chances of rain pretty much throughout the next week,” National Weather Service hydrologist Mark Fuchs said Monday. “None of them look heavy, but that could change if you get the right kind of nuance in the atmosphere. “We’re going to be cautiously aware of what’s going on in the next seven days,” Fuchs said. The National Weather Service reported that the river is generally a foot or two above technical flood stage from southern Iowa south to near St. Louis. The river is well within its banks from St. Louis and south. Very little damage occurs with flooding at this level, but some roads in areas unprotected by levees are closed. A few buildings were threatened in the small Iowa towns of Montrose and Niota. In Missouri, a small park near Clarksville was starting to flood. Clarksville – one of the few towns without a levee or floodwall – was not threatened. A state road near Elsberry was wet and several acres of farmland were under water. Since the 1993 flood, governments have extended levees, built floodwalls and bought out property in the flood plain. As a result, the impact of flooding has been lessened.

Geithner’s memoir blasts Kirk’s comments on China

CHICAGO – Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has blasted U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois for alleged comments he made in China while a congressman in 2009. In his memoir out Monday, Geithner’s claims Kirk advised Chinese officials not to buy Treasury notes or other U.S. government debt. Geithner calls Kirk’s fears “delusional” and ones that undermined American interests abroad. Kirk has traveled to China on trips sponsored by the nonprofit National Committee on U.S.-China Relations. He won his Senate seat in 2010. His office didn’t confirm Geithner’s account, issuing a statement Monday saying the nation’s debt has grown since he went to China in 2009. And that it’s “not delusional” that the U.S.’s spending habit is crippling economic recovery.


Illinois income tax increase vote still looming

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois lawmakers are expected to take on other issues this week while a vote on an income tax increase looms. The Senate adjourned Monday without hearing any major issues facing the Legislature this spring. Lawmakers are tasked with passing a state budget and deciding whether to extend the temporary income tax. State revenues would drop by $1.6 billion if lawmakers let it roll back in 2015. Lawmakers are expected to hear several other issues this week – including regulations on ridesharing companies such as Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar. House lawmakers may vote on a plan to lure Barack Obama’s presidential library to Illinois by allowing the state to spend $100 million on the project. A group of university presidents are lobbying for need-based scholarship funding Tuesday at

the state Capitol.


Overtreating Medicare patients may costs billions

CHICAGO – A new study suggests that in a single year, up to 42 percent of Medicare patients got at least one medical procedure they didn’t need – overtreatment that cost as much as $8 billion. The treatments included prostate cancer screening for men beyond the age most experts recommend, and imaging tests in older women for osteoporosis at too frequent intervals. The treatments also included invasive heart and kidney procedures that research has shown are no better than medicine, and potentially more risky. The findings are in an analysis of Medicare claims data for 1.3 million patients in 2009. The researchers devised a list of 26 “low-value” procedures they determined reflect likely overuse. The list was compiled

from research evidence and recommendations from several medical groups. Lead author Aaron Schwartz of Harvard Medical School’s health care policy department and colleagues acknowledged that Medicare claims may lack details about patients that might justify some procedures. But using more conservative criteria, they still found that 25 percent of patients received at least one wasteful service, totaling almost $2 billion. The results, published online Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine, are only a snapshot and the researchers said there are likely many other procedures that are sometimes performed with little benefit for Medicare patients. “We hope that development of better measures of low-value care will ultimately spur development of interventions to reduce unnecessary care,” the journal editors wrote in an editorial.


Jury selection starts in latest Sheley trial

ROCK ISLAND – Jury selection has begun in the western Illinois trial of a man charged in four killings in 2008 that police say were part of a two-state killing spree. Nicholas Sheley is charged with murder for the deaths of 29-year-old Brock Branson, his fiancee, 20-year-old, Kilynna Blake, her 2-year-old son, Dayan, along with 25-year-old Kenneth Ulve. Their bodies were found in their Rock Falls apartment. Sheley, who is 34, has pleaded not guilty. Sheley is already serving two life terms after being convicted of killing one man in Sterling and another in Galesburg. Sheley still faces charges in the deaths of an Arkansas couple found dead in Missouri. Jeremy Karlin is Sheley’s attorney. A judge granted Karlin’s request to move the Rock Falls trial to Rock Island over pretrial publicity.

NATION & WORLD BRIEFS Energy bill caught up in Keystone XL dispute WASHINGTON – Days after President Barack Obama touted executive actions aimed at increasing energy efficiency, a bill with similar goals is expected to fall victim to partisan gridlock in the Senate. A bipartisan bill to promote many of the same efficiency goals Obama touted Friday in California is expected to go down in defeat Monday amid a dispute over the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Co-sponsored by Sens. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., and Rob Portman, R-Ohio, the energy bill would tighten efficiency guidelines for new federal buildings and provide tax incentives to make homes and commercial buildings more efficient. The measure is widely popular in the Senate and easily cleared a procedural hurdle last week. But then politics – and the dispute over the Keystone XL pipeline – intervened. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., used a parliamentary maneuver to block amendments on the bill, including a measure that would approve construction of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to the United States.

Washington Monument reopens after earthquake WASHINGTON – A cross section of Americans awakened early and waited in line for hours to be among the first to ride to the top of the Washington Monument, open to the public Monday for

the first time in nearly three years after an earthquake chipped and cracked the towering symbol. The 130-year-old, 555-year-old obelisk was built in honor of the nation’s first president between 1848 and 1884 and briefly reigned as the world’s tallest structure until it was eclipsed by the Eiffel Tower. Engineers have spent nearly 1,000 days making repairs stone by stone. Now new exhibits have been installed, and the National Park Service is offering extended hours to visitors through the summer.

In this photo taken from video by Nigeria’s Boko Haram terrorist network Monday shows the alleged missing girls abducted from the northeastern town of Chibok. The new video purports to show dozens of abducted schoolgirls, covered in jihab and praying in Arabic. It is the first public sight of the girls since more than 300 were kidnapped from a northeastern school the night of April 14 exactly four weeks ago.

Boko Haram demands release of fighters for girls By MICHELLE FAUL and SUNDAY ALAMBA The Associated Press

Texas set for execution HUNTSVILLE, Texas – Texas will carry out on Tuesday the first U.S. execution since a botched lethal injection in Oklahoma last month unless attorneys for a man convicted of murdering a Houston bank teller convince a court that he runs the same risk of the punishment going awry. Attorneys for Texas condemned killer Robert Campbell cited in their appeal the Oklahoma case of Clayton Lockett, who died of an apparent heart attack on April 29 after Oklahoma prison officials stopped his execution. Campbell’s execution would be the eighth this year in Texas and the fourth in recent weeks to use a lethal dose of pentobarbital Texas prison officials obtained from a compounding pharmacy they’ve refused to identify.

LAGOS, Nigeria – Under the guns of their captors, dozens of barefoot girls sat huddled together wearing gray Muslim veils as they chanted Quranic verses in Arabic. Some Christians among them said they had converted to Islam. “I swear to almighty Allah, you will not see them again until you release our brothers that you have captured,” the leader of the Boko Haram terrorist network threatened, an assault rifle slung across his chest. A video released by the group Monday offered the first public glimpse of what it claimed were some of the nearly 300 Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped a month ago. The girls’ plight has spurred a global movement to secure their freedom. It is not known how many suspected Boko Haram members are detained by security forces. Hundreds were killed last month when leader

Abubakar Shekau’s fighters stormed the military’s main northeastern barracks in Maiduguri, the terror group’s birthplace and the headquarters of a year-old military state of emergency to put down the 5-year-old Islamic uprising. In the video, two of the girls were singled out for questioning. “Why have you become a Muslim?” one girl, who looked to be in her early teens, was asked. “The reason why I became a Muslim is because the path we are on is not the right path,” the girl said, nervously shifting her body from side to side, her eyes darting back and forth. “We should enter the right path so that Allah will be happy with us,” added the girl, who said her name had been changed to Halima because she had converted from Christianity to Islam. Like the other girls, she wore a bulky gray hijab that covered her body from head to toe, revealing only her face. A second girl, who appeared to be in her mid-teens,

was asked if she or any of the others had been mistreated. No, she said, adding that they had experienced nothing “except righteousness.” As the girls chanted Islamic verses, some clasped their hands together in what appeared to be the Christian style of prayer before quickly turning their palms upward, as Muslim worshippers do. The girls’ families have said most of those seized April 15 from a school in the northeastern town of Chibok are Christians. It was impossible to fully authenticate the video, though parents were trying to turn on a generator in Chibok, hoping to watch the video and identify their daughters, said a town leader, Pogu Bitrus. “There’s an atmosphere of hope – hope that these girls are alive, whether they have been forced to convert to Islam or not,” he told The Associated Press by telephone. “We want to be able to say, ‘These are our girls.’” The video showed about 100 girls, indicating they may have been broken up into smaller groups.

Time to deal with climate Tens of thousands of studies on global warming have been published in recent years, enough to discredit the idea that human-caused climate change is not real – or that it can safely be ignored until it gets much worse. Now, the third U.S. National Climate Assessment, the most comprehensive federal review of climate change to date, said the effects are having increasingly severe consequences in every region of the United States. That includes Oregon, where changes in snowmelt are drawing down water supplies; where rising sea levels, erosion and increasing ocean acidity are damaging infrastructure and compromising ecosystems, and where forests are under assault by intense wildfires, insect outbreaks and fast-spreading tree diseases. The report, released Tuesday by the White House, said these and similar changes across the country have been caused by an average warming of less than two degrees Fahrenheit over the past century. If greenhouse gases generated by burning fossil fuels continue to accumulate at the current rate, temperatures could rise by 10 degrees by the end of this century. Let the scientists speak for themselves: “Climate change, once considered an issue for a distant future, has moved firmly into the present,” they wrote. “Summers are longer and hotter, and


extended periods of unusual heat last longer than any living American has ever experienced. Winters are generally shorter and warmer. Rain comes in heavier downpours. People are seeing changes in the length and severity of seasonal allergies, the plant varieties that thrive in their gardens, and the kinds of birds they see in any particular month in their neighborhoods.” Mandated by Congress and published every four years, the assessment is a rigorously researched and peer-reviewed resource that is intended to help public officials, business leaders and everyday Americans make more informed decisions – not, as critics claim, a conspiratorial attempt to scare Americans and cripple the economy. And, yes, the report duly notes there are benefits from warmer temperatures, but in most cases those benefits eventually will be negated by the ratcheting effects of climate change. For example, the report finds that some parts of the country are enjoying longer growing seasons. But it warns that food production in those areas eventually will decline as temperatures continue to rise and as water becomes more scarce. In the absence of action from Congress, President Barack Obama recently has taken a series of measures to counter climate change.

Madigan miscalculated with Obama library It’s been assumed all along that Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan’s proposal to spend $100 million to help build Barack Obama’s presidential library was designed to put the Republicans on the spot and perhaps provoke an over the top, maybe even racial response, which would help gin up Democratic turnout a bit this November. Obama has put the library’s location out to bid, so Madigan’s proposal is ostensibly designed to help Chicago attract what will likely be a pretty big tourist destination. But politics is just about everything in Springfield these days. Democrats are hoping to crowd the November ballot with enough measures to help gin up their party base and get them out to vote. A constitutional amendment to forbid

VIEWS Rich Miller any voter discrimination along racial, ethnic, gender, etc. grounds was already approved for the ballot. A nonbinding referendum on whether voters want to increase the minimum wage to $10 an hour is being prepared. So, this was mainly seen as just another in a series of ploys to fire up the base. But the Republicans have so far played it quite well, publicly pledging their own support for the library and focusing on the cost. No Republican legislator has yet crossed the line. President Obama may not be all that popular elsewhere, but polling

has consistently shown he remains popular here. There’s no sense attacking him and risk a backlash. Plus, the Republicans make a good point. Obama has proved to be an incredible fundraiser. He still has a lot of very wealthy supporters and he just doesn’t need any help raising money. The government doesn’t really need to be involved. Illinoisans overwhelmingly agree with the GOP. “As you may know,” 1,029 likely voters were told May 7 in a Capitol Fax/We Ask America poll, “some lawmakers in Springfield want the state to commit $100 million to help pay for the construction of the future Presidential Library for Obama, if it is located in Illinois.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

residents and Downstaters said the state can’t afford it. Speaker Madigan has had a few misfires this year. He wanted to put a constitutional amendment on the ballot to levy a surcharge on income over a million dollars, but he couldn’t round up enough votes. Madigan said in March that he wanted to make the income tax increase permanent, but last year eleven of his members – many of whom are his most politically vulnerable – introduced a bill to roll the tax hike all the way back. He has 71 Democrats and he needs 60 to pass the permanent extension measure. That gives him no wiggle room at all. And, as the poll makes clear, Madigan badly miscalculated with this Obama library thing, both with Republican legislators and the voting public. • Rich Miller also publishes Capitol Fax, a daily political newsletter, and

EPA measures are long overdue • CLIMATE Continued from page 16 He has created “climate hubs” in Oregon and other states to work with farmers, industry groups and federal agencies to help prepare them for climate disasters ranging from wildfires to flooding to droughts. He has ordered the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Transportation to develop tougher fuel economy standards for heavy-duty trucks.

The administration has announced plans to reduce emissions of methane, a particularly potent greenhouse gas. And next month the EPA is expected to issue controversial new rules to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that are spewed by power plants. They’re all long-overdue measures. But even tougher steps will be needed, and that will require the same kind of powerful public support that helped force the changes that produced cleaner water and

air in the 1960s and 1970s. It will require cooperation and leadership from both Democrats and Republicans in Congress. And it will require the kind of sacrifices and cooperation that Americans have made in response to past crises – actions they are fully capable of taking once again when they understand that climate change is already happening and that the stakes are high for future generations. – The (Eugene) RegisterGuard in Oregon

We’d like to know whether or not you generally approve or disapprove of that $100 million proposal?” Just a scant 29 percent approved, while an overwhelming 67 percent disapproved. A mere 4 percent were unsure. The only demographic support for the project wasn’t even majority support. A plurality of Chicagoans supported the idea 48-43, as well as a slim plurality of African-Americans, 45-44. But a plurality of Democrats actually was against the plan, 48-44. And the idea is hugely unpopular with everybody else. A whopping 68 percent of women, 66 percent of men, 75 percent of independents, 80 percent of Republicans, 74 percent of both Latinos and whites, 65 percent of suburban Cook residents, 72 percent of collar county residents and 77 percent of Downstaters opposed the Obama presidential li-

brary idea. The poll’s margin of error was plus-3.1 percent. 23 percent were cellphone users. But even more said the state couldn’t afford to help build the library. “No matter how you feel about the Presidential Library,” respondents were asked, “do you believe the state can afford to support it?” Only 21 percent said the state could afford it, while an overwhelming 71 percent said it couldn’t. Another 8 percent were unsure. Not a single demographic category said the state could afford the project. Chicagoans said it was unaffordable 43-42, a 53 percent majority of Democrats said it was unaffordable and African-Americans said it was unaffordable 54-35. Everybody else’s responses were almost off the charts.

5th inning critical in comeback By DICK GOSS

• Tuesday, May 13, 2014

NEW LENOX – There is no denying an eight-run sixth inning is the reason Joliet Catholic softball won Monday’s East Suburban Catholic battle at Providence. But what happened in the bottom of the fifth inning might have been equally responsible for the Angels’ 13-7 triumph. Providence (15-10, 9-6) was leading, 4-3, and threatening to blow the game open against JCA freshman Alivia Phelps, who walked the first two batters that inning. Maeve Garvey stepped up and blasted the first pitch over the left-field fence, but maybe two feet foul. Garvey smacked Phelps’ next offering off the left-center field fence, but with her teammates tagging up, she was held to a single and the bases were left loaded. Angels third baseman Reilly Jo Swanson moved back nicely to grab a soft line drive for the first out. With the infield still playing in, shortstop Alyssa Callans dove to stop Natalie Krockey’s ground ball headed for left field and forced the runner at third. While a run scored to make it 5-3, JCA had life. The next hitter struck out to end the threat. “We were two feet from three runs that inning and then we gave up eight,” Providence coach Jay Biesterfeld said. “We felt we should have been scoring more all along, but we didn’t and they got us. We’ve had the upper hand on JCA the last few years, but the games all have been close.” The Angels (9-18 and with no seniors on the roster) cracked eight of their 16 hits in the eight-run sixth and four more in scoring two insur-

Ryann Querio, Kayla

Bennett, Josie Henderson and Paige Callans also had two hits. Swanson, Harrison and Querio doubled. “We played St. Viator on Saturday, and we must have hit seven line drives at infielders,” JCA coach Dave Douglas said. “That’s been our luck at certain points this year. Today the girls kept swinging and balls they hit found the gaps. We had some breaks go our way and we made some of our own.” Providence jumped ahead in the first inning when left-handed hitting Morgan

Young Angels team rallies for win

Michael DiNovo for Shaw Media

Joliet Catholic’s Paige Callans hits a RBI single Monday against Providence at Providence High School in New Lenox. JCA won, 13-7. Greenwood belted her sixth home run of the season off the scoreboard in left-center, a two-run shot. “She probably put a dent in the board,” Douglas said. “After that, we talked to the girls and told them stuff happens, just be patient.” The Celtics increased their lead to 4-0 in the second on Alyssa Demma’s two-run single. Demma and Garvey each had two of Providence’s nine hits. However, Swanson got a pair of runs back with her two-out double in the third

and Harrison’s run-scoring double off Providence starter Zoe Bruni made it 4-3 in the fourth. “This was an awesome win,” Harrison said. “Any time we can beat Providence, in any sport, it’s big. My brother [Grant, former football player at JCA] always held it over me that his team beat Providence and we hadn’t.” The series concludes Wednesday afternoon at JCA. “We have to go get ’em back,” Biesterfeld said.

Phoenix, Calderon shut down Warriors By TIM O’BRIEN Shaw Media Correspondent NEW LENOX – The writing has been on the wall in recent weeks for Lincoln-Way West baseball, and West coach Jake Zajc has made sure his team is aware of it. When you are facing a good pitcher and that pitcher is cruising, you have to make adjustments. What happens when you don’t make adjustments? That was Monday when Lincoln-Way North starter David Calderon found a groove early on. “We talk about approach and being aggressive,” Zajc said. “Calderon had a great outing, very aggressive with his fastball, and we didn’t ad-

just. Our four losses, we’ve faced some good pitching and didn’t make the adjustment. Either we start doing that or we continue not scoring runs.” Calderon was nearly unhittable for visiting Lincoln-Way North, and the Phoenix rode their senior righty’s arm to a 5-1 win over Lincoln-Way West in a SouthWest Suburban Red game. Calderon went the distance, allowing two hits, four walks and 13 strikeouts. He struck out the side in the first and sixth innings for Lincoln-Way North (19-2, 9-1). Lincoln-Way West (23-4, 8-2) was shut out by North last week, 3-0, leaving the Warriors chasing in the conference race.

“We’ve got to win out, and today was a big game to keep us right there at the top,” Zajc said. “Now we’re trailing, but we’ve got to take that one game at a time with four left. It was a frustrating day.” North jumped on West starter Steve Skolarz in the fourth, with Austin Konegal starting things with a two-run homer that carried up in the wind and kept going over the left-field fence. Three batters later, Ben Troike smashed a three-run bomb to left, putting North up 5-0 as the Phoenix batted around in the inning. Skolarz went 3⅔ innings with six hits and four walks allowed for five runs and three strikeouts. The hard-throwing junior

is easing back into the mix after missing the early part of the season with some elbow tenderness. “Strong early, and he’s not back entirely where we’ve seen him before,” Zajc said. “He’s working, and he was aggressive early. Just got a little tired, missing some pitches. He’ll get better as we get along.” Going ahead, the Warriors know they have to avoid giving up the big inning to be successful. “We’ve been coming out flat lately,” West’s Ben Francis said. “If we come out more aggressive, that will help because we usually have one bad inning, and that brings us down for the whole game.” Francis was excellent out

of the bullpen Monday, relieving Skolarz and throwing 31/3 innings, allowing only a hit and two walks. “I’m just throwing strikes and painting the corners,” Francis, a senior, said. “I’m trying to mix up my looks and pitches.” West’s lone offense came in the bottom of the fourth, the Warriors stringing their only two hits of the game backto-back. After Dan Brokop reached on a single and moved to third on an outfield throwing error, Ryan Hastings brought him home with a soft-hit single up the middle. Hastings beat the throw to first. West plays rival Lincoln-Way Central on Wednesday.


Redskins keep conference title hopes alive with win BY RYAN WOODEN Shaw Media Correspondent MORRIS – Entering a three-game series with first place Kaneland, Morris baseball needed to get off to a good start to keep their Northern Illinois Big 12 East title hopes alive. Luckily for the Redskins, they maintained their hopes, winning, 6-3. Morris (21-8, 8-4) trails Kaneland by a half-game in the conference. The visiting Knights got off to a quick start when Joe Panico drew a one-out walk in the top of the first inning before scoring two batters later when cleanup hitter Nick Stratman’s RBI single made it, 1-0. Another Kaneland run of the unearned variety would give the Knights a 2-0 lead. In the second inning, Morris cut into the Kaneland lead when Morris pitcher Tim Smyk launched a soaring solo home run deep over the fence in left field to make it 2-1. Smyk settled in after the rough first inning. He pitched through trouble in the second and third innings, but didn’t allow a single run. In the

fourth, he struck out a pair in a three up-and-three-down inning. At the plate, Morris came up with a clutch third inning. Morris racked up four straight two-out singles to push across three runs that

gave the Redskins a 4-2 advantage. “I felt like out kids responded positively today, and I don’t know how many hits we had exactly, but it really wasn’t about how many hits we had, it was about how

timely they were,” said Morris coach Todd Kein. In the fifth inning, the Knights scored a run when Tyler Carlson led off the inning with a single. Carlson would move to second on a sacrifice bunt before taking third on a

passed ball and scoring on an ensuing throwing error. The game was halted in the middle of the fifth inning when a lightning strike was spotted to the west. The delay lasted 50 minutes, before action resumed.

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – Right-hander Jacob Butler (Minooka) pitched a complete game to lead the University of St. Francis baseball team to a 3-2 victory Monday night at the NAIA Baseball Opening Round Lawrenceville Bracket. Butler stifled No. 1 seed and host Georgia Gwinnett, the NAIA’s No. 6-ranked team, on a seven-hitter. He walked four, struck out seven and stranded two runners in the top of the ninth inning. The Saints (38-20), the fifth seed in the five-team event, began the day with a 2-1 win over Westmont College to earn the right to face Gwinnett. Brandon Mendoza singled home Luke Wyss in the fifth inning for the first run of the Gwinnett game. After Gwinnett took a 2-1 lead in the sixth, USF came back with two in the seventh. Dave Kuhne doubled

one in and Mendoza’s sacrifice fly scored Kuhne with the goahead run. Junior pinch-hitter Matt Scott drove in the go-ahead run in the top of the eighth inning to lift St. Francis over Westmont in the earlier game. Mendoza’s groundout earlier had knocked in USF’s first run. Junior Adam Panayotovich (9-4) went the distance for the Saints.

St. Francis wins pair at NAIA tourney



Bears invite Foster, Greenwell to mini-camp

The Herald-News / • Tuesday, May 13, 2014


STAFF REPORTS The Bears have invited former Joliet Township wide receiver D.J. Foster, a West graduate, and University of St. Francis tight end Dustin Greenwell to their rookie mini-camp Thursday through Saturday at Lake Forest. At the conclusion of the mini-camp, selected players will sign with the Bears and attend their upcoming organized team activities (OTAs). Foster starred at Southeast Missouri in the Ohio Valley Conference. He caught 33 passes for 364 yards and three touchdowns in 12 games for the Redhawks last season. Included was a 78-yard touchdown pass against Murray State, Southeast’s longest of year. Foster finished his college career with 98 receptions for 1,244 yards and 12 touch-

downs. He led the team in receiving during the 2011 and 2012 seasons. The Ohio Valley Conference had a Football Championship Subdivision-best four players selected in this year’s draft. The big name was Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who was selected by New England in the second round.

GREENWELL IMPRESSES USF’s Greenwell, a twotime NAIA All-Mid-States Football Association selection, caught 87 passes, including 10 for touchdowns, as he helped St. Francis post four consecutive winning seasons and reach the NAIA national quarterfinals in 2011. As a senior in 2013, he had 39 receptions for 455 yards and four TDs. “I have thought about playing in the NFL for many years, but it’s something you

don’t talk about much, especially when you’re from a small school,” Greenwell said. “You try to stay realistic.” Greenwell’s initial contact with NFL scouts came at a pro day at Northern Illinois in March, where he performed well enough to draw the attention of several teams. He went on to exhibit his skills at the NFL Super Regional Combine at Ford Field in Detroit, then for the Bears at a pro day for players from Chicago-area schools in midApril. NFL scouts were particularly impressed with his leaping ability, which was rated among the top 10 among players at his position. As the draft approached, Greenwell’s name began appearing on several draft prospect lists. Greenwell was not selected in the draft, which concluded Saturday, but shortly after the final pick was announced, he

received a call from the Bears inviting him to attend this week’s rookie mini-camp. “It was a relief getting that call,” Greenwell said. “The draft ended about 8 o’clock, and it was about two hours later that they called.” “Dustin did it the right way,” St. Francis coach Joe Curry said. “He had a great playing career, graduated in December and now has an opportunity to represent St. Francis in the NFL. He worked hard to get his name out there, which was crucial coming from a small school. I am very proud of Dustin and what he has accomplished to this point.” Greenwell becomes the second St. Francis player to earn an invitation to an NFL minicamp. He joins wide receiver Dempsey Norman, who was an 11th-round pick of the Phoenix Cardinals in 1990.

DIXON’S SELECTION A player with local ties who was drafted was former Joliet Junior College cornerback Brandon Dixon, selected out of NCAA Division II Northwest Missouri State in the sixth round by the New York Jets. He was the 195th overall selection. Dixon concluded his two-year career with numerous national accolades. He earned first-team All-America honors from CoSida/Daktronics after earning second-team honors as a junior in 2012. He was also a first-team All-America honoree by and the Don Hansen Committee. Dixon helped lead Northwest Missouri to the 2013 NCAA Division II championship. He finished his senior season with 36 tackles, 12 passes defended, 11 pass breakups, one interception and one blocked kick.

Joliet’s Sontag wins Grundy County Speedway’s late-model feature STAFF REPORTS MORRIS – Joliet’s Brett Sontag took the lead from Billy Knippenberg on lap eight and held off Boris Jurkovic the rest of the way to win the late-model feature last Friday night at Grundy County Speedway. Defending track champion Ricky Baker won the battle for third place over Eddie Hoffman. Scott Koerner was fifth, while Larry Schuler held off Brandon Clubb for sixth. Clubb, James Gregait, Dean Patterson and Ray Brackett rounded out the top 10. Koerner won the first heat ahead of Hoffman, and Brackett beat out Patterson in the second heat. Baker set the fast time. Tom Knippenberg won for the second time in three nights in the Mid-American feature. Kevin Murphy was second, Luke Baldwin third, John McMahon fourth and Matt Clemens fifth. Joe Vinachi, Cody Clubb, Kenny Benson Chuck Yuris and Jim Kachel rounded out the top 10. Baldwin and Knippenberg

finished 1-2 in the first heat, and Kachel and Yuris took those spots in the second heat. Clemens set the fast time. Eddie Ligue passed Pete Odell late and went on to win the street-stock feature. Bill Serviss was third, Christy Pendrod fourth and Cheryl Hryn fifth, followed by Jake Bradley, Rob Scamen, Pete Morris, Renee Farren and Matt Sisson. Sisson won the heat race ahead of Hryn. Ligue set the fast time. Tom Kaminski won the first of two 4-cylinder features. Then came Ryan Lagestee, Rich Dearborn, Zach Sontag, Chris Mihalski, Spen-

cer Leake, Dan Schmeissing, Chris Woodall, Joe Labombarbe and Steve Hespen. Leake won the other 4-cylinder feature, followed by Mike Yuris, Austin Blackwell, Lagestee, Hespen, Schmeissing, Sontag, Justin Mikel, Tyler Wheaton and Will Shepherd. Defending champion Tommy Knippenberg put on

a power show in the 25-lap Mid-American main, grabbing the top spot on lap 12 and beating Murphy to the finish line by 3.245 seconds. It was Knippenberg’s second win in three nights of racing. “I guess last year we were having a dream season to start out, but this is even better,” Knippenberg said. “I have never actually won two weeks in a row. That’s incredible. I’m so excited right now.” Luke Baldwin checked in third, followed by John McMahon, Matt Clemens and Joe Vinachi. Eddie Ligue chased down Pete Odell and made the win-

ning pass on lap 18 of the 25lap street stock feature. Once in front, he was able to extend his edge over Odell to 0.781 seconds. Bill Serviss was third, followed by Christy Penrod, Cheryl Hryn and Jake Bradley. Tim Kaminski scored the first feature win of his career in the first of two 4-cylinder mains, doggedly holding on with Ryan Lagestee on his bumper. Rich Dearborn finished third. The second 4-cylinder main went to Spencer Leake over Mike Yuris and Austin Blackwell.

They make it sound so simple. “Play a little bit harder,” defenseman Johnny Oduya said when he was asked what it’s going to take for the Blackhawks to beat the Minnesota Wild in Game 6 on Tuesday at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. “They play a really fast game, and we just have to bring a little bit more effort, I think.” If it were that easy, this series would be over. Instead, the Hawks have struggled to flip the switch – or even find the switch – that ignites their “A” game and propels them to the next round. For all their success in the Jonathan Toews/Patrick Kane era, the Hawks don’t do much the easy way. For a team that has won two Stanley Cups in the previous four seasons, they have few wireto-wire blowouts. In 16 of their past 17 playoff victories, the Hawks have been behind, tied or leading by only one goal at some point in the third period. They’ve been tied or trailing 12 times. The Hawks can’t seem to stand prosperity, and they usually respond best when the situation is the most dire. They played the best period of their series against the Wild in Game 5 immediately after playing their worst. They

et in the Toews/Kane era, they never have needed it. They have gone 7-0 in Game 6 clinchers, including 5-0 on the road. That streak definitely will be on the line, considering the Hawks’ unimpressive performances in 4-0 and 4-2 losses in Games 3 and 4. Even after turning it on and holding on

for a 2-1 victory in Game 5, the Hawks hardly looked primed to parlay that into a clinching victory in Game 6. Then again, they’re the defending Stanley Cup champions, a team that always gives you a chance before taking it away. That’s what the Hawks do. And coach Joel Quenneville

were up 2-0 in the series, then were tied 2-2 and trailing 1-0 in Game 5. If the Hawks have a cushion, they use it. Except when it comes to Game 6. Regardless of how a series has transpired, the Hawks have had a knack for putting the hammer down at the end. Whenever they have had a Game 7 in their pock-

seems to be counting on it again. “I commend the guys on their focus and their preparation,” Quenneville said. “They welcome the challenge. The bigger the setting, the bigger the stage, they seem to rise to that challenge. “With certain teams, there is some experience in games like that can help you. For the players, their game day and their focus going in is important. Being through what we’ve been through the years has helped. Our leaders help send that message to everybody.” Therein lies the key to the special nuance of the Hawks’ success. In Toews and Kane, the Hawks have two players who somehow find a way to rise to the occasion and light the way for their teammates. In the seven Game 6 clinchers, Kane has seven goals, 12 points and is a plus-6; Toews has five goals, 11 points and is a plus-5. That’s a great foundation. But history or not, the Hawks will be in tough against a Wild team that knows it can win this series and will be fighting for survival. “You don’t want to have a hockey player backed into a corner; that’s when they’re at their best,” Oduya said. “That said, I think we have the experience and the knowledge that we need to really be at our best to win the game.”

Some breathe easier after NFL Draft By KEVIN FISHBAIN The fans and media aren’t the only ones closely watching the NFL draft. Current players, who know they have to fight to start, or even make the roster, will want to keep tabs on their team’s draft picks. The Bears drafted four defensive players, three offensive players and one punter, adding more competition to positions such as defensive tackle and running back, but also putting the onus on players already on the roster at other positions to win the job. Here’s a look at players who may have been pleased to see how the Bears’ draft went, because it didn’t make a summer trying to win a starting job or a roster spot any more difficult than it already is. Safety Chris Conte: This by no means makes Conte your Week 1 starter for the Bears – far from it – but he had to breathe a sigh of relief when he saw the Bears waited until the fourth round to take a safety – same goes for Ryan Mundy and M.D. Jennings. Conte has plenty of work to do coming off his worst season and considering he will get a late start because of shoulder surgery. By not taking Ha Ha Clinton-Dix or Calvin Pryor in the first round, the Bears are leaving the starting safety competition to the players they have, plus draft pick Brock Vereen, who certainly could win the battle. There seems to be confidence – or hope – that Conte can turn things around.

Shorewood practitioner offers a plethora of integrative medicines By JEANNE MILLSAP

Know more

Shaw Media Correspondent


HOREWOOD – Dr. Manuel Duarte is no ordinary chiropractor. He’s earned several diplomas and degrees, as well as six certifications. He’s an international speaker to other health professionals. He’s conducted research and written for professional journals. “From a health professional’s point of view, his accomplishments are unrivaled [and] not just in the area,” said Jason Duarte, Dr. Manuel Duarte’s son and intern at his father’s clinic. “He’s one of the most accomplished chiropractors in the world.” Manuel Duarte’s clinic, Body Fitness Physical Medicine in Shorewood, offers a variety of integrative medicine, both Western and Eastern, as he believes it “takes a team to manage a person’s health today. “You need the medical doctor, you need the chiropractor, you need the acupuncture, you need the naturopathy,” he said, “and they need to all work together.” In January, after Manuel Duarte’s research on back pain and orthotics was published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine, he received a $400,000 grant from Foot Levelers to conduct a three-year study on the topic. “We’re in the process now of gathering patients and randomizing them,” he said. In 2013, Manuel earned his master’s in acupuncture from the National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, graduating summa cum laude and serving as valedictorian, Jason Duarte said. With his partner Dr. Sonia Joubert, Manuel Duarte treats sports injuries, back problems, headaches, chronic pain, sinus issues, dysmenorrhea, depression, fibromyalgia and insomnia.

Rob Winner –

Dr. Manuel Duarte of Body Fitness Physical Medicine and Sports Injury Clinic in Shorewood demonstrates an acupuncture treatment with his son, Jason Duarte, at his office Wednesday. His tools include chiropractic services, acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, Graston technique, kinesio-taping, cupping, physiotherapy, laser, orthotic shoe fitting, moxa burning and nutrition counseling. Jason Duarte explained some of the unfamiliar treatments. The Graston technique uses smooth and blunt metal pieces to detect and treat scar tissue. Kinesio-taping relieves joint pain. Cupping creates a suction on muscles (“Like a reverse massage,” he said) to mobilize blood flow and promote healing. Moxa burning uses heated dried mugwart (“It looks like a giant cigar,” he said.) to increase blood flow. “You can use it with or without acupuncture,” Jason Duarte said. Yet, Manuel Duarte doesn’t rest on his accomplishments. He trains others to imitate them. As professor and chairman of Clinical Practices at

National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, a school that embraces integrative medicine, bringing together professionals from a broad range of medical specialties, he helps train students to think holistically. He also attends conferences in Israel, South Africa, Turkey, South Korea, Canada and the Netherlands to share with and learn from his peers, as approach to patient care is different in other countries, he said. His special area of interest – and the subject for which he is most requested – is stabilization programs for chronic low back pain, but Manuel Duarte is always stimulated when interacting with his international peers, and he rarely leaves a seminar without meaty discussions of cases following his lectures, as well as requests for photos and autographs, he said. “I’ll have six hours of long lectures for two days in a row,” he said, “and even when you’re done, you’re not through.”

Yet, as a boy, Manuel Duarte’s passion was sports (baseball, basketball, football, hockey) not health sciences – although he did practice yoga during his teen years. His post-college career was a high school gym teacher, he said. A growing interest in struggling kids led him to earn a graduate degree in developmental disabilities and a job at Willowbrook State School, a Staten Island state-supported institution for children with developmental disabilities helping to open up group homes, Manuel said. Around this time, Manuel Duarte felt ready for some hands-on work and an opportunity to be his own boss. He recalled how a chiropractor had healed him from a football injury and decided he liked the idea of “drugless therapies” and “putting the body in an optimal place to heal itself.” Manuel Duarte feels people rely too heavily on drugs and procedures and less on preventative practices. The growing

According to, Dr. Manuel Duarte is 19-year full-time faculty member of National University of Health Sciences in Lombard as well as its chair of clinical practice and chief clinician. The site also said Manuel earned his bachelor of science degree in physical education from Brooklyn College and his master of science degree in developmental disabilities from Long Island University. He received his doctor of chiropractic degree from National University of Health Sciences. At the university, the site also said Manuel has served on numerous committees and taught classes in the “Chiropractic Certification Program of Sports, the Sports Diplomat Program, the Orthopedic Diplomat Program, low back stabilization programs and acupuncture certification.” Duarte has also spoken at state conventions. The Dr. Manuel A. Duarte Facebook page listed said Manuel is also certified areas: • strength and conditioning specialist • chiropractic sports physician • acupuncturist • cox flexion distraction technique • SpiderTech instructor • Graston technique The Facebook page said Manuel is an instructor with the American Health Association and is eligible for certification in kinesio-taping. He is also a diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Orthopedists and the American Board of Chiropractic Sports Physicians.

epidemic of antibiotic-resistant bacteria is one result, he said, of people seeking “a quick fix” instead of taking “responsibility for their own health.” “Western medicine definitely has its place,” he said. “Thank God for surgery and medicines that are there when you need them. Unfortunately, people run to them when they don’t need them.”

Discard and lead the right cards


John Buchan, a Scottish politician and novelist, whose most famous book was “The Thirty-Nine Steps,” said, “Every man at the bottom of his heart believes that he is a born detective.” It helps if a bridge player is a detective, uncovering clues from the bidding and play. But another word in that sentence is important in today’s deal. South is in three no-trump. West leads the spade queen. Given that the defenders can take only four tricks in spades, how should declarer plan to win the last nine? South starts with six top tricks: four hearts, one diamond and one club. He needs to deduce that if the club finesse is losing, the contract is hopeless. But if that finesse is winning, he can rake in nine tricks: four hearts, one diamond and four clubs. So, on the fourth spade, declarer must discard his diamond queen. Yes, this risks going several down if the club finesse fails, but pitching a club instead would leave South needing both minor-suit finesses to work. Then, after taking the fifth trick with his diamond ace, how should declarer continue? He must realize that he might need to take the club finesse three times. But he has only one dummy entry, in hearts, and he must stay in the dummy while repeating the club finesse. This requires first leading the bottom card in dummy’s clubs that can hold the trick when East has the club king. South must lead first the club nine. When that holds, he runs the club jack. Then he plays a club to his queen and claims. If declarer first leads dummy’s club jack, East can defeat the contract. Work out how.

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips lives without undue harassment. If “Stunned” reports her co-worker to her employer, she will jeopardize his livelihood, which he needs to redeem his life. – Already Paid His Debt Dear A.P.H.D.: I received mail from mental health professionals, employers, parents and people who are on the sex offenders’ list regarding “Stunned’s” letter. All of them stated that the range of crimes that can add someone to the list is very broad. The list is no more than a STARTING point for people to begin their own research into public records before telling an employer or another person. Read on: Dear Abby: For more than 20 years I have employed a man who is a convicted sex offender. He paid his debt to society for having sex with a minor when he was in his 20s. It will haunt him for the rest of his life. The pictures you see online are recent because the authorities

require updated photos yearly. I empathize with him because I dated a 15-year-old when I was 19 – with her parents’ approval – but today it could mean jail time and a ruined life. There is no demarcation between being dumb and being truly criminal, so everyone is labeled the same. I suggest that we all stay aware of those labeled sexual predators, but approach the sexual offenders case-by-case. – Justice For All Dear Abby: Inclusion on the registry can be the result of something that would not pose a danger to anyone – urinating in public, or having sex with a younger girlfriend when you yourself are a minor. If you see a neighbor or co-worker on such a list, no one should jump to conclusions before doing more research about the actual offense. It may be nothing to worry about at all, or it might be something to react to. But you won’t know until you find out more than a simple listing. – Rebecca In San Diego • Write Dear Abby at www.

Stress to teens that marijuana has its dangers Dear Doctor K: I have a teenager, and I’m worried he might try marijuana. I’d like to give my teen some facts about marijuana that will make him think twice about using it. What can I tell him? Dear Reader: You’ve asked an important and timely question. Marijuana use is on the rise, especially among teens. It’s easier to get than many other drugs – and cheaper. Also, teens think that it is safer than other illicit drugs. Two states have legalized recreational use of marijuana by adults. The message that it is safe to use is stronger than ever. That’s why it’s vital for parents to talk to their pre-teens and teens about marijuana. Certainly, it’s important to keep some perspective. There surely are more dangerous drugs, such as heroin or cocaine. And cigarettes and alcohol are just as dangerous, if not more so. But marijuana isn’t safe, and many people don’t know its dangers. The safety of marijuana is a controversial area. There are not many large, long-term, good studies. So, no doctor should

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff have a dogmatic and confident opinion about its safety. Here’s my best current judgment for what you need to make sure your son understands. Marijuana affects the parts of the brain that influence pleasure, sensation, concentration and memory. But that’s not all. Marijuana also: • Affects the developing brain. These effects may be permanent in people who start using it heavily during adolescence. There is reasonable evidence that regular, heavy use of marijuana in the teen years – when the brain still is developing – can lower IQ and alter memory and thinking. • Can lead to psychosis. Regular, heavy use of marijuana also can raise the lifelong risk of schizophrenia. It has been linked to anxiety, depression and other mental health problems. • Can damage the lungs. It’s never a good idea to inhale any kind of smoke into the lungs.

Marijuana smoke can lead to infections, asthma and other lung problems. • Makes the heart beat faster. It can cause the heart to beat extremely fast for a long period. When that happens, it can increase the risk of dangerous heart rhythms that can lead to sudden death – even in a teenager. • Can impair concentration and judgment. It is dangerous to smoke pot and then drive. Driving performance can be as impaired as when a person is intoxicated by alcohol. • Can be addictive in some people. Finally, make sure your teen understands that, in most states, having or using marijuana is illegal. It can lead to jail time. Talk to your son early and often. Make sure he knows the facts so he can make the best choices for his health and future.

Dr. Wallace: I’m 17 and get good grades. I do all my homework and then some. I guess you can say that the pain is worth the gain. I’m hoping to be the valedictorian and earn a college scholarship. My friend is also in the National Honor Society and receives $25 for every semester A grade. So far, this semester she is earning four A’s and two B’s. She also gets an allowance. My parents don’t think students should be paid for good grades. I also don’t get an allowance, but my dad does give me money for special occasions. I consider my studies to be my job, and jobs should earn money. I’m not furious about not being rewarded for my grades, but since I’m going to get six A’s in a few weeks, $150 would come in handy. I hope you agree; and yes, my parents can afford to reward me. – Lisa, Long Beach, Calif. Dear Lisa: Most educators and those “in the know” frown on rewarding students with cash for good grades, but after giving your letter some thought, I’ve decided to be on your side. I agree that students should work hard to earn the highest grades possible, regardless of rewards for A’s and B’s, but after sleeping on my response, I agree that giving rewards can instill in certain students that extra drive to excellence. The reward can be agreed upon at the beginning of each semester and doesn’t necessarily have to be money. Six A’s in six classes is quite an accomplishment and a time for the family to celebrate and reward the superior student! Dr. Wallace: I’m 16 and have a disagreement with my mom. We live alone because my par-

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace ents are divorced and my older brother lives with my dad in Chicago. My mother is a nice person, but she has a problem when I tell her I am ill. I guess she doesn’t believe that I can ever get sick. I haven’t missed a day of school this year, but I should have. At least four or five times I had a really sore throat or a splitting headache and she made me go to school because “you’re really not hurting.” I even vomited after breakfast once, but she said it was probably because I ate too fast. I have two more years of high school left and I don’t want to win the perfect attendance award just because my mom can’t understand that I can be sick enough to stay at home. Please tell me how I can overcome this problem. – Madison, Peoria Dear Madison: You don’t belong at school when you are not feeling well, especially when you have a fever. It’s not fair to you or the other students if you happen to have a contagious illness. If mom makes this mistake again, go directly to the nurse’s office and explain the difficult position you’re in. When the nurse calls mom and informs her that you have a fever and she should come to school and take you home because you are too ill to remain in school, mom might just come to realize that it is possible for her daughter to be sick. If you don’t have a nurse at school, talk to your counselor. The result should be the same. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@

Dear Abby: As a licensed psychotherapist who has worked with both victims and perpetrators of sexual abuse over the past 25 years, I would like to respond to “Stunned in the City,” who found her co-worker’s name on a website for registered sex offenders. Registered sex offenders have been convicted and incarcerated for their crimes as well as serving a probationary period upon release. However, unlike other criminal offenses, they never finish “serving their time” – both in the areas of WHERE they can live and HOW they can live (employment). They continue to serve a sentence that can never be completed and are stigmatized for the rest of their lives. The reason for this is because of a “one-size-fits-all” approach to punishment, be it a one-time offender or a serial rapist. Most sexual abusers are either members of the family or a close family friend, and most are never reported. Only a small percentage of registered offenders pose a danger and should be under surveillance. The others should be allowed a second chance to continue with their

‘Belle’: A fractured family drama By STEPHANIE MERRY The Washington Post Fans of romantic period drama have something to tide them over until the next Jane Austen adaptation. Set in 1769, “Belle” announces its intentions straightaway with a heartfelt reunion between a man and his illegitimate daughter, followed by an exceedingly tearful separation. But even the melodrama can’t put a damper on the remarkable history behind this true story. Dido Elizabeth Belle was the daughter of British admiral Sir John Lindsay and an African slave, Maria Belle. After her mother died, and before her father was dispatched to who-knowswhere, Dido was placed in the care of her father’s uncle, William Murray. The first Earl of Mansfield, Murray also happened to be lord chief justice, tasked with ruling on cases involving England’s slave trade. Gugu Mbatha-Raw gives a superb performance as Dido, a very confused young woman who exists in a state of limbo. She is too high-born to mingle with commoners and too dark-skinned to eat dinner with her own family. She is raised with her cousin, Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon), who was abandoned by her father, and the pair grow up like sisters, although Dido isn’t afforded certain basic accommodations that Elizabeth is. And yet, Dido doesn’t question the order of things. She feels loved by her adoptive parents, a greataunt and great-uncle played by Tom Wilkinson and Emily Watson, and another aunt (Penelope Wilton), a spinster governess. She also has freedom that Elizabeth

Elizabeth has been disowned, left with no dowry, while the death of Dido’s father leaves her a rich woman, so she doesn’t have to marry if she doesn’t want to. But she has options in the form of two white men willing to buck the system to be with her. One is John Davinier (Sam Reid), a passionate aspiring lawyer and anti-slavery activist. The other, the son of a lord – a more suitable match, according to Dido’s adoptive father – is Oliver Ashford, played by James Norton. The story transcends the predictable outcome of this love triangle. That thread is supplemented by the recurring theme of liberty and restriction. Dido was freed from slavery and poverty but remains imprisoned by societal prejudice, which pops up in the ugliest ways, especially

during an altercation with Oliver’s brother, played by Tom Felton (the erstwhile Draco Malfoy from the “Harry Potter” movies, officially typecast). During one heartbreaking scene, Dido stares in the mirror rubbing desperately at her skin as if her race is merely a smudge that could be wiped away. Yet Elizabeth, who looks like she belongs among the lords and ladies, is penniless and also shackled by society. Her adoptive parents tell her she has to marry rich, and she laments that she’s become mere property, while Dido can do as she pleases. The most interesting story line involves Lord Mansfield’s work as he decides the Zong massacre case, in which a ship of slave traders threw 142 slaves overboard, claiming it was necessary because supplies were running low. As if that wasn’t horrify-

ing enough, the owners of the Zong then tried to get insurance money for the financial loss. (The trial was not a murder case but an issue of insurance fraud.) Whether Lord Mansfield will side with the insurance company or the slave traders becomes a point of contention in the family. The movie packs a lot in, and the quick pace of early scenes can feel like running on a treadmill, but “Belle” settles into a nice rhythm. It ends up having all the requisites of a period drama – a strings-heavy soundtrack, lavish costumes and passionate declarations of love – plus a good deal more.

• “Belle” received three out of four stars. The film is rated PG and contains thematic elements, some strong language and brief smoking images. It runs 104 minutes.
