SHOREWOOD – Longtime resident Barbara Kirkland was sworn in as a village trustee Tuesday, filling the seat vacated by the late Celene “Cene” Schwartz. Kirkland took a seat next to Mayor Rick Barbara C h a p m a n o n Kirkland the board for the second time after trustees approved her appointment. She previously served as a trustee from 1997 to 2003. “She’s the first person I thought of,” said Chapman. “I’m pleased as punch because she fits the bill.” Kirkland’s experience is

one of the main reasons why Chapman asked her to fill Schwartz’s seat. He was looking for someone who could adapt quickly to the board. “At next month’s meeting you would think she has been here for years,” Chapman said. Kirkland has been active in Shorewood as a member of the Police Pension Board and the Police and Fire Commission. She also worked on the village’s parks with Schwartz. “When the mayor called to talk to me about it, I was very honored,” said Kirkland. “I enjoyed my time on the board.” This is the second time Kirkland is being appointed to fill a vacant seat on the board. She was appointed in 1997 and served with Chapman as trustees. During that time, the village was preparing for the pop-

ulation boom in the village. “We knew that our opportunities were coming and excited about the prospects of new businesses,” said Kirkland. “But we wanted to make sure we were on the conservative end, keep up with infrastructure.” Now, Kirkland said she’s excited to be working on the board as the village emerges from the recession. She’s also honored to take the seat last held by Schwartz. “I knew Cene personally, since she came to Shorewood,” said Kirkland. “I know those are big shoes to fill and I’d never attempt to fill them. She was an amazing woman and good person to follow.” Chapman also honored resident Pete Cerve at the meeting. Cerve is a retiring member of the Planning Commission.

District 202 board may reconsider decision to cancel some bus service By VIKAAS SHANKER vshanker@shawmedia.com PLAINFIELD – King’s Crossing residents are worried that cancellation of school bus service from their subdivision to Eagle Pointe Elementary School means their children will have to use a potentially dangerous bike path in the fall. Several residents expressed their concerns Monday night to the Plainfield School District 202 board about its decision to cancel bus service to the subdivision. As a result, the board decided to look at reconsidering the decision. “The biggest reason we’re concerned is the safety issue,” said King’s Crossing resident Kristen McCombs, who has three children attending Eagle Pointe and was at the meeting. “We understand the situation and we’re not against children walking to school. The path they would have to walk is so secluded.” The cancellation of bus service to the elementary school was discussed and approved at board meetings in April. The district also canceled bus service for other subdivisions, including River Hill to Plainfield East, JFK and Eichelberger

schools, Fox Ridge Farms to Plainfield East, Patriot Place to JFK and Eichelberger, and Greywall Club and Theodore Ridge to Plainfield South. The rationale for the cancellations is that the subdivisions qualify under state regulations as walkable areas. Each subdivision is within 1.5 miles of the schools, and walking paths to the schools do not qualify as temporary hazards anymore, according to a board report. The total transportation cost savings is between $67,000 and $110,000. Director of Community Relations Tom Hernandez said the district could stand to lose state assistance with transportation costs if it doesn’t comply with the state definitions of hazard areas. For King’s Crossing, a new bike path installed by the Plainfield Township Park District connects it to the Wilding Pointe subdivision where Eagle Pointe is located. The cost savings for this elimination is estimated to be at least $5,000. However, residents said that while the path is paved, it’s still dangerous. The path runs about 200 feet parallel to a Canadian National railroad track, which carries more

than 20 trains a day. The path also borders a retention pond south of the subdivision and is not visible in the spring, summer and fall months because of the corn stalks, and won’t be plowed in the winter. Residents also claim the path is limited to emergency vehicles and is in an area where there have been coyote sightings. “I don’t allow my children to play on the bike path, so I wouldn’t want them walking to school every day on it,” said resident Lori DiGiovanni, who also attended the meeting. “The board was definitely willing to hear what we had to say.” Board President Roger Bonuchi said several of the concerns residents brought up at the meeting were already addressed. But he noted it was important to hear what they had to say and trustees will individually schedule themselves to personally check out the path. “Not that we don’t trust our staff, but we owe it to the residents to go out and visit,” Bonuchi said. “We appreciate the fact that they were respectful and addressed the board.”

Resident Cheri Susner was appointed to fill the position. The village board approved the 2014-15 annual appropriations ordinance of $27 million in total revenue and $45 million in total expenses. The ordinance used an inflated value of 25 percent over next year’s $11.3 million budget to anticipate unforeseen expenditures, according to a staff memo. However, the village continues to operate on a budgetary basis. The village also approved a professional service agreement with Hitchcock Design Group for Lake Forest Park, a contract with Austin Tyler Construction for public improvement work in the Edgewater subdivision, and $20,119.50 in materials for the Laura Street watermain extension.

Joliet civil engineer puts the pieces together for transportation center By BILL WIMBISCUS bwimbiscus@shawmedia.com JOLIET – Lisa Dorothy is methodically piecing together what might be one of the largest and most complicated jigsaw puzzles in the world. Dorothy, the city’s civil engineer, oversees the several projects and thousands of details that make up the Joliet transportation center project, a commuter colossus that will improve rail service and unify bus service into the downtown. “It’s not as straightforward as most people think,” Dorothy said, sitting amid the reams of maps, drawings and sketches of rail lines, loading platforms, parking lots, detention ponds and bus routes that cover her desk. “With the way everything interlocks and connects, it’s really complicated.” Take the new train station, for instance, which will be located just east of Union Station on Michigan Street. Its second floor will provide passenger access to the Rock Island District line. A tunnel from its first floor will access the passenger platform in between two of the Heritage Corridor lines. But before Dorothy can build the station, she first has to build the platforms, a permanent one on the Rock Island and a temporary one on the Heritage Corridor. Once the platforms are finished later this summer, she can start on the two access tunnels. The south tunnel will connect to the new station, the north will be near Van Buren and Michigan streets. Work on the tunnels is expected to begin in September. This is where things get real tricky. Placing tunnels into the embankment under the tracks first involves driving retaining walls into the ground around the tunnel sites. Work can’t be done while there is train traffic, so the railroads

At a glance Here’s a look at the status and cost of various parts of the $41.25 million Joliet Transportation Center project: n Ottawa Street replacement parking lot: Completed in 2012, cost $1.2 million n Marion Street parking lot: Completed in 2013, cost $1.8 million n Rock Island District passenger platform: Work progressing, cost $6.7 million n Heritage Corridor District temporary platform: Work progressing, cost $1.2 million n Heritage Corridor tunnels: Anticipated to start in September, cost $1.4 million n Heritage Corridor District permanent platform: To start in 2015, cost $8.2 million n New Michigan Street train station: To start in 2015, cost $4.4 million n St. Louis Street bus station/ detention area: On hold pending eminent domain proceedings n Union Station improvements: To be determined, about $1.5 million has been set aside

Construction site of the Joliet Transportation Center is seen Tuesday along the Rock Island District track near Joliet’s Union Station. involved – Burlington Northern Sante Fe, Union Pacific, Amtrak and Metra – will have to close rail traffic at certain times. The current plan is to shut down rail traffic on all four lines for four eight-hour periods. Once the walls are in place, it’s time to put in the tunnels; huge concrete squares that are 11 feet tall by 14 feet wide on their interiors. This time the railroads will shut down for 48 hours, enough time to remove parts of two lines, excavate the holes for the tunnels, backfill, compact and replace the rails. “Having things occupy the same time-space continuum is tricky,” Dorothy said. “It’s like a terrible game of Tetris.” It’s also expensive, as the Joliet City Council learned last month when it approved a $1.4 million bid for construction of the two tunnels, even though it was 50.6 percent above the initial engineering estimate. “What we’re really paying for here is that there is such a limited time that the trains

The city will face a similar time crunch in 2015, when it builds the permanent platform above the two tunnels, Dorothy said. No work can be performed when a train is on any of the four lines, so construction time will be limited on a daily basis.

The final pieces of the puzzle include renovation of Union Station, the addition of a slew of security cameras and lighting, and construction of the St. Louis Street bus station and a detention area. Work on the bus station and detention area has been delayed by an eminent domain issue. Complicating all of the

city’s plans are simultaneous projects on the rail lines. Amtrak is strengthening bridges and other infrastructure on the Heritage Corridor in preparation for high-speed rail, and Metra is reconfiguring its second line on the Rock Island around the new Joliet platform. “Everyone just wants to know when is it going to be done and how much is it going to cost,” Dorothy said. But with all of the variables, her timetables and cost estimates change on an almost daily basis. Perhaps because her world is so governed by numbers, Dorothy likes to use analogies when talking about the project. “This is a bit like brain surgery, heart surgery, a kidney transplant, a double-knee replacement, a hip replacement, a hernia repair and a facelift on a 100-year-old patient with cancer and high cholesterol while his extended family tries to live and work out of the waiting room,” she said. “Or, herding cats, as the case may be.”

Salvation Army in Joliet opens its arms Youth, family programs offered to community at Third Avenue center By LAUREN LEONE–CROSS lleonecross@shawmedia.com If you build it, they will come. That’s true – at least in some cases – for The Salvation Army building at Richards Street and Third Avenue in Joliet, which underwent a $3 million expansion in 2011. “We’re trying so hard to just be a part of this community,” said Lt. Claudia Simmons, who heads up the local Salvation Army Center with her husband, Lt. Daniel Simmons. “We want people to know we have these programs. That’s been the hardest thing. We prepare our programs, but nobody comes. I think it’s because people only associate The Salvation Army with social services. We’re so much more than that now.” In the midst of National Salvation Army Week, which goes until Saturday, Simmons said she hopes to raise awareness about the nonprofit’s mission and the center’s new

offerings. The Joliet center at 300 Third Avenue quadrupled in size to 28,000 square feet in 2011, and with the expansion came a new gym, classroom, recreational room, computer training room and more, she said. The organization also continues to provide financial assistance for housing and utilities. The larger space also meant officials could offer several new services, including a food pantry for low-income families, an after-school program for children, a reading program and basketball for neighborhood youths. They also offer worship services and Bible study groups. Nearly 20 children participate in the organization’s after-school Youth Enrichment Program, which allows children to grab a snack, work on homework and enjoy recreational activities. But Simmons wants to see more parents and children attending these program togeth-

Parents are either letting their kids come to The Salvation Army and they neglect to invest themselves into The Salvation Army, or they come but they don’t bring their children,” she said. “We want to unite families here.”

Girl in critical condition after being hit by SUV By BRIAN STANLEY bstanley@shawmedia.com JOLIET TOWNSHIP – A 14-year-old girl was critically injured when she was struck by a SUV Monday night. State Police Sgt. Scott Angus said the crash happened about 8:30 p.m. on Route 53 at Pheasant Run Road. The girl was taken to Loyola Hospital where she was being treated for “life-threatening” injuries Tuesday, Angus said. John E. Severson, 59, initially drove away in his 2009

Ford Edge but returned, Angus said. Severson, of the 18400 block of West Breen Road in Elwood, was arrested on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident. Will County State’s Attorney spokesman Charles Pelkie said Severson also faces pending traffic tickets. Attorney Gerald Killian told Judge Roger Rickmon on Tuesday that Severson was heading south on Route 53, but returned with northbound traffic that was getting stuck because of the accident.

“He was directed to detour by a Joliet police officer, but said he was involved. [Severson] was told to pull over and waited at the side of the road while [police] determined jurisdiction,” Killian said. Killian said Severson waited there for about 50 minutes before he spoke with state police. “This was a pedestrian? I’m a little concerned he didn’t stop immediately if the allegations are true,” Rickmon said before setting a $50,000 bond for Severson.

A consistent volunteer base also is needed, she said. “We want to build our programs. We need donations. We need leaders, and people who have passion for this type of work. We want people who are willing to invest time and effort,” she said. The nonprofit’s weekly food

pantry program, which started in 2012, has taken off in the last couple of years, Simmons said, noting a decline in food stamp benefits for families. At least 400 families have sought food assistance so far this year, compared to the 200 families served in all of 2013, she said. About 35 families came through Monday seeking food, she said. “We want to be able to serve even more,” she said. “We want to be a long-term fix for people. We don’t want to be just a band-aid. We want people to come here and find the support they need.”

Plainfield school board approves new principal THE HERALD–NEWS PLAINFIELD – The Plainfield School District 202 board has approved a new principal at Liberty Elementary School. D a n a Karczewski, currently as- Dana sistant prin- Karczewski cipal, will be principal at the school next year. She re-

places Christy Frederick, who is taking a position in another school district, the Plainfield school officials announced in a news release Tuesday. Karczewski has been assistant principal since 2012. Previously she was a classroom teacher at Ridge Elementary School in the Plainfield district, starting in 2007. She also taught at Kelvin Middle Grove School in Lockport. The school board approved Karczewski’s appointment Monday.

Seven-Day Forecast for Will County


Joliet Sports Hall of Fame will induct new class Ceremony set for June 17 By BILL WIMBISCUS bwimbiscus@shawmedia.com JOLIET – Five new candidates are set to be inducted into the Joliet Sports Hall of Fame next month. The Class of 2014 will include Ken Parker, Matt Senffner, Brent Wadsworth, Terry Gannon and Ed Brady. The new honorees will be the first to be inducted since 2010. They join 45 other area athletes in the hall. The project began in 2003.

Ken Parker Parker’s induction is posthumous. Parker played on the Whiz Kids, the 1942-43 University of Illinois Fighting Illini men’s basketball team that won the Big 1 0 t i t l e a n d Ken f i n i s h e d t h e Parker war-shortened regular season as the nation’s top-ranked team. Parker went on to become basketball coach at Joliet Central High School for several years, followed by stints as athletic director at both Central and Joliet Junior College. He also coached basketball at St. Patrick’s Catholic School, where he amassed a record of 71-1. “He was one of the most highly-respected people we

have ever come across,” said Dick Goss, Hall of Fame committee member and sports editor of The Herald-News. “You’d be hard-pressed to ever find anyone who had a bad word to say about him.

Matt Senffner Senffner, former athletic director from Providence Catholic High School, coached at the school for 38 years, guiding it through its transition from Class A t o C l a s s A A Matt c o m p e t i t i o n . Senffner He coached all nine of the school’s state champion football teams and won an IHSA-record 300 games. “Obviously he was very successful on the field, but if you talk to any of the students who played for him, they rave even more about him off the field,” said Dave Laketa, chairman of the Joliet Hall of Fame committee. “He developed friendships with people who played for him. That’s really a tribute. There isn’t a guy who played for him that wouldn’t go to bat for him.”

Brent Wadsworth Wadsworth, a golf course architect and founder of Plainfield-based Wadsworth Golf Construction Co., has built hundreds of golf courses across the U.S. since the 1950s. Many are consistently rated among the top courses in the country. Wadsworth is a patron of

the arts, and a benefactor of the Rialto Square Theatre. In January, Wadsworth announced a major endow- Brent ment for the Wadsworth Joliet Area Historical Museum that Museum Director Greg Peerbolte said was “a huge game-changer for our organization.” His Wadsworth Golf Charities Foundation is dedicated to improving communities through the embodiment of the moral, ethical and cultural codes of the game of golf.

Terry Gannon Gannon, a Joliet Catholic High School graduate, went on to North Carolina State. He was a member of the Cardiac Pack, Coach Jim Valvano’s 1983 national cham- Terry Gannon pion team. “As a player, he was one of the best this area ever had,” Goss said. “He’d average 25 points a game before there was even a 3-point line.” After college, with prompting by Valvano, Gannon went into broadcasting. Through the years, his assignments with ESPN, ABC Sports, The Golf Channel and other stations included the Olympics, the PGA and Champions tours, college basketball and football, pro soccer, pro tennis, the Tour de France, Indi-

New Lenox delays new business requirements

JOLIET PREMIERE SCREENING

Home businesses would register with village

May 14, 2014 7:00PM

By FELIX SARVER fsarver@shawmedia.com NEW LENOX – The village board has postponed a decision on whether to require registration of home-based businesses and inspections of commercial businesses. The proposed ordinance also would hike registration fees. Village Administrator Kurt Carroll said Tuesday that the board wants to discuss the ordinance further at a committee of the whole meeting. The board tabled the ordinance when it met Monday. He said inspections are under consideration to ensure a business meets zoning requirements getting registered by the village. “We’re making sure it had the proper zoning and the building was up to code before the first business registration went through,” he said. Nancy Hoehn, village eco-

nomic development director, said there is no intention to inspect home-based businesses unless the village receives a complaint or indication of a problem at the location. Another change to the registration process would include shifting the timeline of the registration process from July 1 to June 30 to a calendar year. Village officials also proposed increasing the registration fee from $10 to $50 for commercial businesses, as well as include a $25 registration fee for home-based businesses. Registration renewals would cost $25 for commercial businesses and $15 for home-based businesses. Fees from the registration would go toward an online business directory, which could be launched in the next four to six weeks. Hohn said the directory would help promote New Lenox business. “This really functions as a

little mini-website for them,” she said. It’s also a way for residents to shop locally, she said. Some other villages require businesses – commercial or home-based – to register, as well. In Homer Glen, all businesses are required to register on a yearly basis for $30, Village Clerk Gale Skrobuton said. She said the businesses complete a sheet of information that will aid police and fire departments in case they need to contact the owners after business hours. They also give businesses an opportunity to list their business on the village website. “It’s a way of promoting their business at no charge,” Skrobuton said. Another proposed change in New Lenox would shift the timeline for registration to the calendar year instead of July 1 to June 30 as it is now.

Please include the following: Name, Address, Phone Number and Health Question

The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative arthritis. It affects about half of all arthritis sufferers. When it strikes the feet, it can be particularly distressing. Although there is little soft tissue swelling, joints often become enlarged, stiff and painful. Anti-inflammatory drugs may be prescribed for the pain, and certain exercises can relieve some of the pressure by strengthening muscles around the joints. Waling and rolling an empty soft drink bottle under the foot are often useful techniques. Your doctor may also perform ultrasound or heat treatments. For more advanced, debilitating cases, surgery may be recommended to remove bony particles or replace the joint with an artificial implant. P.S. Two people with similar joint degeneration can have totally different symptoms, such as intense pain or no pain at all.

Q: When should I get a hearing test?

Dr. Karen Pastell is a licensed audiologist in Joliet and certified by the Tinnitus Practitioners Association.

adno=0264310

A: If you are experiencing any of the signs of hearing loss you should get your hearing tested. Some initial signs may include: difficulty understanding conversations in groups or background noise; people complaining you turn the TV or radio up too loud; ringing in the ears; feeling like everyone is mumbling; or asking people to repeat themselves. A diagnostic hearing evaluation by an audiologist will tell if you have hearing loss and how much; whether the loss is caused by a medical condition and a referral to a physician is warranted; and/or what treatment such as hearing aids or assistive listening devices may help. At age 50 a baseline hearing test is recommended but have your hearing checked at any age if you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above. Most insurance plans will cover the cost of a diagnostic hearing test done by an audiologist.

www.ipmhealthcare.com Q: What are some good back exercises? A: Great Question. People often think that they have low back pain because their back is “weak” and they need to strengthen it. Most the time this is not the case. Often the case is that the abdominal muscles are so underused and weak that the spine, and the muscles around the spine, are forced to take on all the load. The joints and muscles of the spine soon become overused, tight, and painful. Now, in this regard, good back exercises might actually be abdominal exercises. Having the right program is essential as some ab workouts can be hard on the spine, or good exercises not being performed properly can cause pain. It is important you ind a healthcare provider who is used to assessing low back pain and prescribing the appropriate exercise. Core strengthening can help support the spine, which could decrease or relieve spinal pain.

X-ray spots gun in nuclear plant worker’s backpack By BRIAN STANLEY bstanley@shawmedia.com REED TOWNSHIP – An employee at Exelon Nuclear’s Braidwood Generating Station apparently forgot he had a gun in his backpack when he showed up for work May 6. Will County Sheriff’s police say Mark A. Garcia, 32, of Austin, Texas, was charged

with unlawful use of a weapon following the incident at the nuclear plant. According to reports, Garcia checked in his backpack on the X-ray machine, where a security guard saw a 9-millimeter handgun inside. “The employee stated that when he observed the weapon, he could tell that Garcia then realized why the X-ray belt had stopped and placed

his hands on his head and stated that he had forgotten the weapon was in his backpack. Garcia complied with all commands of Exelon security,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said. Hoffmeyer said the pistol never made it into any protected areas of the plant but there are several signs that state firearms are not allowed on the property.

Facials and facelifts are in the works for chairs and sitting furniture of all kinds this month, as a downtown Morris business, Vintage ~ Yesterday’s Memories, Today’s Treasures, prepares for its annual CHAIR-ity event. This is the fifth year of the fundraising auction hosted by the home and garden décor store, and owner Cassie Van Tassel said donations are beginning to trickle in. “Each one is better than the last,” she said of the auctions, “And that’s exciting. That chair that you’re going to sell at the garage sale, bring it in.” Donations of any kind of furniture used for sitting are needed as soon as possible, Van Tassel said, such as desk chairs, garden chairs, stools, benches, rockers, captain’s chairs and kids’ tables and chairs. The store’s designers will donate their time to refashion the items into one-of-a-kind treasures for the CHAIR-ity silent auction scheduled for June 14.

We rock them out,” Van Tassel said. “Our vendors at Vintage come up with some really great ideas. Beyond artistic. They are tremendously talented. We painted one rocker a metallic silver, and we did a metallic gold bike. They put it in the garden.” Vintage vendor and designer Marge Pawlowski of Verona said she especially enjoys doing over some of the chairs that have carvings or similar details on them. “What jumps out at me is when they have ornate architecture to them,” she said, “Like carvings or detail or when they’re thicker or chunkier.” Pawlowski said one of her favorite redesigns was removing the legs from a chair that had a couple of broken legs, then turning the seat and back into a wall piece.

Crossing guard hit by truck By BRIAN STANLEY bstanley@shawmedia.com JOLIET – A crossing guard was injured Tuesday morning after she was struck by a pickup truck. Cmdr. Al Roechner said the accident occurred at 8:36 a.m. when the 56-year-old woman was standing in the crosswalk of Washington Street near Briggs Street. A 1995 Ford F-150 driven by William Haire, 65, of Joliet,

was turning from northbound Briggs onto westbound Washington when it struck the guard. The woman was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries, Roechner said. Haire remained at the scene and allegedly said he did not see the guard in the crosswalk. He was ticketed for disobeying a crossing guard, illegally tinted windows and having a cracked windshield, Roechner said.

Convicted killer faces trial in 4 more deaths

ROCK ISLAND – Two men, a woman and a 2-year-old boy were brutally beaten to death in an apartment they shared in the northwest Illinois town of Rock Falls in June 2008. Each was hit with a hammer, again and again, an autopsy later showed. Authorities say the man who swung that hammer is Nicholas Sheley, who already is serving two life terms for killings in Galesburg and Sterling that same June. In all, police believe Sheley killed eight people in Illinois and Missouri over seven days. Sheley’s third murder trial in Illinois, focused on those four deaths, is expected to start this week in Rock Island after jurors are selected. Barring a mistrial, it could be his last trial in Illinois before facing further charges in Missouri that carry a possible death penalty. The 34-year-old has pleaded not guilty in the Rock Falls killings. But his defense attorney, Jeremy Karlin, has said in court that he doesn’t intend to present any witnesses.

Watchdog group opposes Quinn’s proposed budget

CHICAGO – A watchdog group is opposing Gov. Pat Quinn’s proposed budget because it would use revenue from an income tax hike to add new spending. The Chicago-based Civic Federation released its analysis Tuesday of Quinn’s 2015 spending plan. The $38.1 billion proposed budget makes permanent the temporary income tax increase lawmakers approved in 2011. That tax hike is set to roll back in January, leading to an estimated $1.6 billion loss in revenue. Quinn said extending the tax

Chicago air traffic facility reopens after bathroom fire

CHICAGO – An electrical fire triggered by a faulty bathroom exhaust fan forced the evacuation of an air traffic control facility near Chicago, halting all flights at the city’s two airports and shutting down one of the nation’s busiest aviation crossroads. Controllers were allowed to return to the facility in suburban Elgin about two hours later, but it was not immediately clear when flights would resume.

Elgin Fire Capt. Anthony Bialek said a bathroom exhaust fan in a ceiling overheated and melted some wires and smoke was pushed throughout the facility’s ventilation system. The Federal Aviation Administration said all its personnel were evacuated from the Chicago Terminal Radar Approach Control, or TRACON, facility at around 11:30 a.m. Inbound flights already in the area at the start of the shutdown were handled by a backup air traffic facility in the city of Aurora, just west of Chicago. Some flights were diverted to other airports.

Metra hires new chief to reform its police force

CHICAGO – Metra has hired a new police chief to overhaul the force that’s in charge of protecting the nation’s second-largest commuter rail agency.

Metra announced Monday it had chosen Joseph Perez, a 28year Illinois State Police veteran. A consulting firm hired to review the force released a report last year describing Metra’s police department as “antiquated” and beset by a lack of leadership and mission. Findings included ineffective policies, excessive overtime expenses and a lack of firearms training. He became a trooper in 1986 and served in roles that included the state police’s SWAT team and a unit combating gangs and drugs. Most recently, he was a commander in charge of 800 officers in the six counties in the Chicago area.

Flooding strands drivers in northeast Illinois

LAKE BLUFF – Dozens of vehicles were stranded and schools

were closed in the Chicago suburb of Lake Bluff, which experienced some of the worst flooding from thunderstorms that socked northeast Illinois. Authorities shut down a section of U.S. highway 41 in the Lake County village. The National Weather Service says a flash flood filled the roadway with 10 feet of water in one spot beneath a railroad underpass late Monday night. By Tuesday morning, the road looked more like a river, with the tops of abandoned cars and traffic signs jutting out above the water. A truck driver stranded since 8 p.m. Monday told WFLD TV he was told by about 11 p.m. that no traffic would move and motorists “might as well lie down and sleep.” Des Plaines also experienced flooding.

NATION BRIEFS Bill to renew tax breaks clears hurdle in Senate WASHINGTON – A bill to renew more than 50 expired tax breaks for businesses and individuals cleared a key hurdle in the Senate Tuesday, giving hope to millions of taxpayers who would otherwise be hit with unwelcome tax increases next spring. Other hurdles remain, however. The Senate voted 96 to 3 to open debate on the bill, which has strong backing from the business community but would add about $85 billion to the budget deficit. Almost every year, Congress routinely renews the tax breaks. This year they were allowed to expire at the start of the year – meaning taxpayers would get hit when they file their 2014 returns next spring. The Senate bill would extend the tax breaks through 2015. “Our constituents are depending on us to extend these provisions,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. “We will not pull the plug before our nation’s recovery is complete. By passing this tax extenders package we will build our nation’s economy more quickly.”

Marathon suspect’s pals to be tried separately BOSTON – Three college friends of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect will be tried separately, but those trials do not need to be moved out of Massachusetts, a federal judge ruled Tuesday. Judge Douglas Woodlock ruled

Obama presents top medal to Afghanistan veteran

that Azamat Tazhayakov will stand trial on June 30, followed by Dias Kadyrbayev on Sept. 8 and Robel Phillipos on Sept. 29. Their lawyers had asked the federal judge to move the trial out of state, saying that overwhelming media coverage of the case would mean that their clients won’t receive fair trials in Massachusetts. Woodlock said the defendants could receive fair trials in Boston, or if need be, in Springfield, 80 miles west of Boston Prosecutors opposed the venue change but didn’t object to severing the trials.

Lawyers: Don’t suspend gay marriage ruling LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Lawyers for gay couples asked the state’s highest court Tuesday to let same-sex weddings continue amid a fight over Arkansas’ gay marriage ban, while more than half the counties that had granted licenses to same-sex couples changed course. Since a Pulaski County judge set aside Arkansas’ voter-approved ban late Friday, 400 gay couples have received marriage licenses, according to an Associated Press canvas of county clerks. Only Pulaski and Washington counties issued licenses to same-sex couples Tuesday, after Carroll, Marion and Saline counties said they would wait until the case is fully resolved.

– Wire reports

WASHINGTON – It could have been over for Kyle J. White just 30 seconds into the Taliban ambush, when a rocket-propelled grenade knocked him unconscious. But he came to and by the time the four-hour firefight in Afghanistan was over, White, reeling from concussions and shrapnel in his face, had saved one comrade’s life and helped secure the evacuation of other wounded Americans. On Tuesday, White became only the seventh living recipient of the Medal of Honor for actions in Iraq or Afghanistan, the latest reminder of the post-Sept. 11 conflicts and U.S. sacrifices President Barack Obama has sought to bring to an end “We pay tribute to a soldier who embodies the courage of his generation,” Obama said. With the medal, White, who was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress syndrome after the ambush, also draws attention to the recent scrutiny confronting the Veteran’s Affairs health care system and allegations of lapses in care and delays in mental health treatment. Though Obama did not mention the VA controversies specifically, he told White: “You did your duty, and now it’s time for America to do ours: after more than a decade of war, to welcome you home with the support and the benefits and opportunities that you’ve earned.” Following the ceremony, White, 27, said the valor belonged to all the members of his platoon that day. “Battles are won by spirit,” he said. “Without the team, there can be no Medal of Honor. That’s why I wear this medal for my team.” An Army account of the attack says White, then a 20-yearold Army specialist, and his team of 14 U.S. troops, along with Afghan National Army

After regaining consciousness from the grenade hit, White found his platoon split by the ambush. Half the team had slid down the cliff for cover. He remained atop with three dead, dying and wounded comrades. Left at the top with White were platoon leader 1st Lt. Matthew C. Ferrara, Spc. Kain Schilling, Marine Sgt. Phillip A. Bocks, who was imbedded with the group, and its interpreter. White set about trying to assess the condition of his fellow soldiers, running and crawling through gunfire only to find Ferrara dead and Bocks badly wounded. Though he tried to stop Bocks’ bleeding, the Marine later died. Obama described the drama to an East Room audience of service members, family and White House staff: “Across Afghanistan, base commanders were glued to the

radios, listening as American forces fought back an ambush in the rugged mountains. One battalion commander remembered that all of Afghanistan was listening as a soldier on the ground described what was happening. “They knew him by his call sign, Charlie-1-6-Romeo. We know it was Kyle, who at the time was just 20 years old and only 21 months into his military service.” Though suffering from concussions, White treated Schilling’s injuries under the shadow of a lone tree and used one of the unit’s radios to call for help. When a helicopter arrived after nightfall, White only allowed himself to be evacuated after the wounded were assisted. Schilling attended White’s Medal of Honor ceremony. White retired from the Army in 2011 as a sergeant. He graduated from the University of North Carolina-Charlotte with a finance degree, and he now works as an investment analyst at a bank in Charlotte.

Nigeria opens door for Six soldiers killed in Ukraine; talks with kidnappers German leaders push for peace By BASHIR ADIGUN and HARUNA UMAR The Associated Press ABUJA, Nigeria – U.S. reconnaissance aircraft flew over Nigeria in search of the nearly 300 kidnapped schoolgirls Tuesday, a day after the Boko Haram militant group released the first evidence that at least some of them are still alive and demanded that jailed fighters be swapped for their freedom. A Nigerian government official said “all options” were open – including negotiations or a possible military operation with foreign help – in the effort to free the girls, who were shown fearful and huddled together dressed in gray Islamic veils as they sang Quranic verses under the guns of their captors in a video released Monday. The footage was verified as authentic by Nigerian authorities, who said 54 of the girls had been identified by relatives, teachers and classmates

who watched the video late Tuesday. The abduction has spurred a global movement to secure the girls’ release amid fears they would be sold into slavery, married off to fighters or worse following a series of threats by Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau. Protesters marched through the streets of the capital, Abuja, Tuesday to demand more government action to find and free the girls, who are believed to be held in the vast Sambisi forest some 20 miles from the eastern town of Chibok, where they were seized from their school on April 15. A U.S. reconnaissance mission was being carried out by a manned MC-12 surveillance aircraft, which is based in Niger, according to senior U.S. defense officials in Washington. In addition to the turboprop model which has seen heavy use in Afghanistan, U.S. officials were also considering the use of drones.

By NATALIYA VASILYEVA and JIM HEINTZ The Associated Press KIEV, Ukraine – An insurgent ambush killed six soldiers Tuesday in eastern Ukraine as Germany moved to jumpstart a possible plan toward peace that includes launching a dialogue on decentralizing the government in Kiev. Ukraine’s leadership appeared cool to the plan and U.S. officials view its prospects for success skeptically. But some analysts say Russian President Vladimir Putin is more likely to accept a deal that doesn’t come from Washington. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier is in Ukraine to try to broker a quick launch of talks between the central government and pro-Russia separatists. That would be a first step in implementing a “road map” drawn up by

Bombings kill at least 34 Google must yield on personal info as Iraqis await vote count By TOBY STERLING The Associated Press

By SAMEER N. YACOUB The Associated Press BAGHDAD – Militants unleashed a wave of car bombings in Iraq on Tuesday, killing at least 34 people and sending thick, black smoke into the Baghdad skies in a show of force meant to intimidate the majority Shiites as they marked what is meant to be a joyous holiday for their sect. The attacks came nearly two weeks after Iraqis cast ballots in the country’s first parliamentary election since the U.S. military withdrawal in 2011. No preliminary results have yet been released, deepening a sense of uncertainty in a country strained by a resurgence of violence. It was the deadliest day in Iraq since April 28, when militant strikes on polling stations and other targets killed 46.

An al-Qaida spin-off group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant claimed responsibility for the attacks, adding that they were in retaliation for military operations being carried out by government forces in Fallujah. “We tell the spiteful Shiites and their government that we will save no efforts to target your gatherings and centers in all over Baghdad,” said the statement. The authenticity of the statement could not be independently verified, but its style was consistent with previous statements. The militant group, made up of Sunni Muslim extremists, has strengthened control over parts of western Iraq, including the city of Fallujah and parts of Anbar provincial capital of Ramadi, since late December.

AMSTERDAM – Google and other search engines were thrust into an unwanted new role Tuesday – caretaker of people’s reputations – when Europe’s highest court ruled that individuals should have some say over what information comes up when their names are Goo-

ANOTHER VIEW

Whose interests are being served? The next few weeks will tell us a lot about whose interests are being served in Springfield. Mere days remain in the spring legislative session, but one of the biggest issues facing lawmakers remains – whether Illinois taxpayers will be saddled with a sinful 67 percent increase in state income tax. The increase was greased through in 2011 with the help of lame-duck legislators and a governor who doesn’t seem to think people will remember when he says one thing – promising to veto any call for a tax increase of more than 33 percent – and does another – championing a wallet-draining 67 percent rise. The money, it was promised, was going to help back down a mountain of overdue bills that contributed to Illinois having one of the worst credit reputations in the nation. That didn’t happen. Little if any of the money went for the intended use and as a result the state remains almost as in much debt as it did years ago. By the time the tax was supposed to be nearing its end, savvy voters had already clued in to the need for quotes around Quinn’s use of the word “temporary.” Two proposals for changing the tax structure in the state failed to advance because of a lack of support. One, pushed by House Speaker Michael Madigan, would have created a “millionaire tax” in which those making $1 million or more in a year would have additional taxes. The other would have switched to a “progressive” tax – another attempt to convince taxpayers they would be paying less that came unraveled because someone did the math. The promise most people would end up paying less in taxes under the plan turned out to be not so true. Now it’s down to extended the “temporary” tax, and Quinn and Madigan are all in favor of the idea. Can they get the votes? Not if lawmakers do what’s best for taxpayers, who on average lose about a week’s pay because of the increase. Many legislators also recognize the political tightrope they would be walking to vote for this in an election year. There’s some talk around the Capitol that a one-year extension could be floated, which would keep Democratic leadership from having to present a scorched earth budget but be a little more palatable to voters. We’d rather see a plan that honors the promises made to taxpayers from the beginning.

Don T. Bricker Vice President and Publisher

Another proposed bill constricting consumers SPRINGFIELD – I love animals. But that shouldn’t be surprising. I’m the son and husband of veterinarians. My house is a menagerie with four dogs, two cats, two rabbits and a pair of parakeets. Some of the creatures have special needs. For example, there is the newborn kitten born without eyes that we took in, raised on a bottle and now has been a member of our family for eight years. Or there is the rabbit that a client of my wife begged her to adopt after she developed allergies to her pet. And let’s not forget Lester the St. Bernard mix, which devoured my Blackberry last month. So the Reeder home is all about rescuing animals. While I love animals, I have an even greater devotion to freedom. That’s why some legislation introduced recently in the Illinois Legislature gives me pause. It seems, state Sen. Dan Kotowski, D-Park Ridge, and state

REEDER REPORT Scott Reeder Rep. Dan Burke, D-Chicago, have introduced legislation prohibiting pet stores from selling dogs that haven’t been rescued from the pound or an animal rescue group. So much for trusting consumers to make wise decisions for themselves. Under this bill, consumers could buy dogs from breeders. But pet stores would be prohibited from purchasing from breeders. The bill’s proponents say it will cut down on “puppy mills.” Here is how the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals defines “puppy mill:” “A puppy mill is a large-scale commercial dog breeding operation that places profit over the well-being of its dogs.” But the Illinois legislation essentially lumps all breeders into that category.

There are bad dog breeders out there just like there are unethical accountants, sloppy electricians and dishonest politicians. But most breeders, like most people in any given profession, do a good job. In fact, most of the dog breeders I’ve met are nice people who love animals and are committed to finding them good homes. The federal government licenses commercial dog breeders to ensure they are raising their animals in a safe, clean environment. But apparently that’s not good enough for some state lawmakers. They want to throw the puppy out with its bath water. The bill, which Gov. Pat Quinn endorses, would put some pet stores out of business. It would also make it tougher for dog breeders, who are mostly mom-and-pop business owners. In fact, most of the breeders I know are doing it part-time to supplement their income.

See REEDER, page 22

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.

Gov’t-knows-best mindset is wrong • REEDER Continued from page 21 I bought Hershey, my Labrador retriever puppy, from an older woman battling muscular sclerosis and living on Social Security. Despite her physical ailments, she made sure the dogs were clean and well-cared for. In the years after our purchase, she periodically would inquire how her “baby” was getting along. She certainly didn’t get rich raising dogs. But it helped her make ends meet. And she found loving homes for hundreds of puppies. But the bill before the Legislature would prohibit pet stores from buying from businesses such hers. It’s all part of that smug, government-knows-best mindset that pervades Springfield.

The “thinking” goes something like this: More dogs need to be adopted from animal shelters, so we’ll make it impossible for pet stores to sell anything but “rescue” dogs. Never mind that it hurts small businesses owners. Never mind that it reduces choices for potential pet owners. And never mind that many of the health problems present at poorly run “puppy mills” also plague dog pounds and other shelters. An animal in a pound cage can be exposed to a lot of infectious diseases. That’s yet another reason pet stores should be free to choose where their animals come from.

Treasure powers Joliet West past Lockport

The Herald-News / TheHerald-News.com • Wednesday, May 14, 2014

24 By DICK GOSS dgoss@shawmedia.com LOCKPORT – Sooner or later, someone was destined to come up with the big hit. Left-handed Joliet West senior Joy Treasure picked on a 1-0 fastball from Lockport right-hander Kalyn Putnam and launched it over the rightfield fence with a runner on second base and two outs in the top of the seventh inning. It broke a 2-2 tie and gave the Tigers a 4-3 SouthWest Suburban Blue victory over Lockport. “I was very relieved that I did not have to pitch the seventh inning with the score tied,” said West freshman right-hander Kiley Robb, who went the distance and escaped one jam after another, just as Putnam had done. “This puts us in a good spot in the conference,” said Tigers coach Heather Suca, whose team is 22-6 overall and 9-1 in the SWS Blue for a two-game lead over Lockport (20-7, 7-3). “This is our biggest win of the year. We haven’t usually fared well against Lockport. I have a lot of respect for their program. For us to sweep them in conference, that’s huge.” First baseman Treasure, who shares the season-long pitching chores with Robb, was 0 for 2 with a sacrifice and an RBI when she stepped up in the seventh with Jen Ames, who had singled, on base. “The whole game I was trying to hit singles and it wasn’t working,” Treasure said. “I decided to make my swing longer, and I got the pitch I wanted. It was a fastball inside.

“When I hit it I didn’t think it was going out. I thought I popped it up again like I was doing all game and the right fielder was going to catch it.” The homer was her “fourth or fifth” of the season and the first game-winner. Lockport made it tense in the bottom of the seventh. Sarah DeMasi led off with her third hit and Haylie Arndt reached on West’s fifth error. Alli Howard sacrificed, and Halle Hollatz lifted a long sacrifice fly to center fielder Karina Vargas, who had a running catch in right-center in the first that robbed Howard in Lockport’s two-run inning. Arndt advanced to third on Hollatz’s sacrifice fly. The game ended when third baseman Madi Mulder snagged Zara Voulgaris’ hot shot and threw her out at first. “It was a great game,” said Lockport coach Marissa Chovanec. “We were right there. We just need to find a big hit sooner. “Both pitchers settled in well after the start.” West scored once in the first on Ames’ triple and Treasure’s RBI groundout that was booted for an error. Doubles by Jordan Arndt and DeMasi got Lockport even in the bottom of the inning and Haylie Arndt’s single made it 2-1. After West’s Lorelei Tokarczyk homered in the second to tie it at 2, both teams had one good scoring opportunity after another, but Robb and Putnam met the challenge. “Kiley [Robb] settled down after the first and she adjust-

ed,” Suca said. “She got the outs she needed. We needed this win, no doubt. Now we need to clean up our defense a little.” “They’ve got great hitters,” Robb said. “I wasn’t going to strike them out with the tight zone, so I had to hit corners and try to keep them off balance. “I had to use my defense. They came through when they needed to.” Ames and Vargas each had two of West’s nine hits. In addition to DeMasi’s three hits, Kelly Pattison, Jordan Arndt and Haylie Arndt had two each for Lockport, which stranded 11 runners.

Joliet Slammers manager Jeff Isom chuckled at the irony. “I’ve always said the [exhibition] games were going to answer the questions,” he said following the Slammers’ 10-1 victory Schaumburg on Tuesday afternoon at Silver Cross Field that concluded the team’s exhibition season. “I don’t know how many questions they answered. I thought decisions would be easy at this point, but no, they are not.” Isom’s roster stands at 28. The Slammers must get down to no more than 24 before the regular season opens at home Friday night against Southern Illinois. The final cuts will be made after Thursday’s practice. “All our hard work in the offseason has paid off,” Isom said of the team-building effort. “That’s why we are facing these tough decisions.” On the plus side, Isom has seen what each and every player in camp has to offer. “As you know, there’s turnover in this league, and there may be trades,” he said. “The guys we cut, if they stay in shape and ready, they’re only a phone call away. I can see bringing them back later.” The 28 in camp include 15 pitchers and 13 position players. Most of those positions players will make the team, and they were impressive Tuesday, when the victory lifted the Slammers’ final exhibition record to 4-3. They won their last three and four of the last five. The Slammers attacked Schaumburg, the defending Frontier League champion, with a 21-hit barrage. “In the preseason, you don’t know what kind of pitching you’re seeing,” said Isom, who previously managed the Joliet JackHammers for two years and is in his first year with the Slammers. “But it doesn’t matter. Seeing the approach at the plate our hitters have had, the way they’re being selective and us-

Depending on where newcomer Tre-Von Johnson fits, Bill Miller may not be a regular. Yet all he did Tuesday was homer twice. Last season, as Slammers fans will recall all too painfully, scoring runs was a chore. This season, with Russell Moldenhauer, Adam Giacalone and Marquis Riley in the middle of the lineup, production should be much improved. All three are left-handed hitters, an unusual combination. “That means they will see a lot of left-handed [batting practice] from me,” said Isom, a left-handed pitcher during his playing days. “As the season goes on, they will get better and better against

left-handers. We’ll get to the point where teams will be doing us favors bringing in lefthanders.” Danny Hernandez is in line to be the starting pitcher in Friday’s opener. He probably will be followed in the threegame series by Blair Walters and Matt Dillon. Michael Johnson is penciled in as the fourth starter and Andrew Busby and John Kukuruda are in contention for the fifth slot. Busby was outstanding Tuesday. He started with the plan that he would work three or four innings. Instead, he threw 55 pitches in five innings, allowing one hit and no walks. “That was a commanding performance,” Isom said. “If our starters can give us six innings and turn it over to our bullpen, which we feel is our strength, we should be fine.”

Isom said regardless of the team he is managing, he always is concerned with “defense and pitchers throwing the ball over the plate.” “It’s tough to satisfy me when it comes to defense, but we’ve done a nice job for the most part,” Isom said. “We had some trouble in our early exhibition games when our pitchers did not have command on

the mound, but that has been getting better.” This promises to be an exciting summer at Silver Cross Field. We will detail more of the reasons in the next column, as a new season approaches.

Griffins rally past Warriors in playoff-like match

The Herald-News / TheHerald-News.com • Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Despite dropping first set, Lincoln-Way East grabs conference win “In Games 2 and 3 we really cleaned up our errors and By CURT HERRON cherron@shawmedia.com NEW LENOX – For teams who will be competing in the state’s top boys volleyball sectional in a couple of week, experiencing a state tournament-atmosphere match right now is a good thing. That’s just how Lincoln-Way East and Lincoln-Way West felt after the squads faced off Tuesday in SouthWest Suburban Conference play. The Griffins were flat at the outset and the host Warriors capitalized. But the state’s topranked team picked it up significantly and despite West’s best efforts in the finale, East avoided the upset and rallied to claim a 19-25, 25-15, 25-22 victory. “In Game 1 we really struggled and they jumped on us early and got a big lead,” Griffins coach Kris Fiore said. “But in Games 2 and 3 we really cleaned up our errors and picked up the defensive intensity and were able to pull it out. In the grand scheme of things, it’s good to play some

closer matches since we have been winning a lot of matches by quite a few points, and you can’t expect to do that throughout the whole playoffs.” East (31-1, 8-0), which has won 14 straight matches, trailed by as much as nine points late in the opener. After getting things going with an easy win in the middle set, the Griffins grabbed a five-point lead in the finale, and held off West’s comeback efforts. Ryan Vorderer collected eight of his match-high 17 kills in the third set, where the Griffins grabbed a 12-7 lead and were still up 20-15 before the Warriors (21-4, 6-2) pulled to within a point, twice, before Nate Van Dellen (nine kills, 20 digs) and Aaron Redweik recorded kills. “West’s middle Jake Gasparich wasn’t there when we played them last time [at East’s invite] and he’s really good, and Michael Wexter is a great player, so we knew that it would be a tough game,” Vorderer said. “We were definitely asleep in that first game and were making a ton

of errors but our defensive intensity really picked up in the second game. Our schedule is really tough right before the playoffs, which is good since we’ll be ready.” Despite seeing her squad come up short to the Marist Sectional’s top-seed, West coach Rory Olson believes her sixth-seeded squad showed it can play with anyone. “It was a great volleyball match,” Olson said. “East is a great team, so we knew that after Game 1 that they would come back swinging and their blocking was phenomenal in Games 2 and 3. It was just a case of momentum and trying to play catch-up against them. I think our guys did a great job of keeping composure and continuing to fight. We still have a tough schedule left, so all of these matches will prepare us for postseason play.” In the opener, West jumped out to an early 8-4 lead and then broke things open with a 5-0 run to turn a 9-6 cushion into a 14-6 advantage. While East hurt its cause with several errors, West received a pair of kills from Scott Chris-

Meanwhile, East got big efforts defensively from Josh Phalen (21 digs) and Nate Van Dellen, while Austin Royer handed out 32 assists, and Mike Rossetto provided a spark by contributing four kills and three blocks, mostly in the last two sets. Things were tied at 11-11 in the middle set when East used a 4-0 run to move in front

for good, and then gradually started to pull away. That set the table for the dramatic third set, which went down to the wire before the Griffins finally wrapped things up. “I thought that we played our game pretty well [Tuesday],” Wexter said. “But give all of the credit to East since they came out a little flat but then they decided that they were going to step it up and it was a great game all-around. This really shows that on any given day we can be right there with the best teams. We’re definitely feeling a lot more confident and I think that it makes us realize that we’re good enough to play with anyone in the state.”

AREA ROUNDUP

Plainfield North wins nail-biter over Plainfield Central STAFF REPORTS PLAINFIELD – On the day that it got awarded with the top seed in the Class 4A Oswego Sectional, the Plainfield North baseball team showed why. The Tigers got a quality pitching performance from Joe Callahan and just enough offense to hold off district rival Plainfield South, 2-1, in Southwest Prairie Conference action. Callahan went the full seven innings, allowing just a run on three hits while striking out seven and running his record to 5-0. Meanwhile, Jake Durham had a double and an RBI,

while Matt Welch was 2 for 2 with an RBI. Josh Garner added a double for the Tigers (23-4, 15-1).

PREP BASEBALL Morris 4, Kaneland 2: Morris’ Nick Evola carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning, and finished with a complete-game win with 10 strikeouts Tuesday.

SUBMITTED REPORTS LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – Southeastern University’s Bryan Muniz collected three RBIs and Andres Cancio threw eight shutout innings as the No. 17-ranked Fire defeated University of St. Francis, 7-0, on the second day of the NAIA baseball opening round Tuesday afternoon at Georgia Gwinnett College. The loss dropped the Saints to 2-1 in the tournament, sending them into a consolation bracket game Wednesday afternoon against either host Georgia Gwinnett or Westmont College, who played Tuesday night. The game was scoreless until the fourth inning when Southeastern (46-14) scored a pair of runs to chase St. Fran-

cis senior starter Jake Evans (Wilmington), who took the loss (1-3) after allowing four hits and two runs in 31⁄3 innings. Southeastern added a run in the sixth before plating three more in the seventh and one in the eighth off three different Saint hurlers. St. Francis (38-21) managed eight hits off Cancio (111), but was not able to push a run across as it left 10 runners on base. Dylan Jameson pitched the final inning for the Fire, who move on to Wednesday’s championship game. Muniz went 4 for 4 with a double. Senior catcher Trevor Cherwin, junior third baseman Matt Scott and sophomore second baseman Luke Wyss each had a pair of hits for St. Francis.

In Class 4A, two sectionals feed into the Champaign Supersectional at University of Illinois. In the five-team Plainfield South Regional, which feeds into the Bloomington (Illinois Wesleyan) Sectional, Minooka has captured the top seed, with Joliet West second, Plainfield South fourth and Joliet Central fifth. Bradley-Bourbonnais is the other team, seeded third. In the 21-team Andrew Sectional, Providence is the top area seed, landing the sixth slot. Others are Lin-

coln-Way Central (seventh), Lockport (ninth) and Lincoln-Way East (12th). The other Class 4A sectional involving local teams is the Oswego Sectional, which feeds into the Crestwood Supersectional at Standard Bank Stadium. In the 21-team Oswego Sectional, Plainfield North has been awarded the top seed, with Plainfield Central 12th, Plainfield East 15th, Romeoville 18th and Bolingbrook 19th. In Class 3A, all eyes are on the loaded Lincoln-Way West Regional, which feeds into the LaSalle-Peru Sectional and advances to the Rock Island (Augustana University) Supersectional.

NFL Draft over, but grind of determining roster never ends By ARTHUR ARKUSH aarkush@shawmedia.com The 2014 Bears are undoubtedly more talented than the 8-8 club that couldn’t get a fourth-down stop against the Packers to earn a trip to the postseason in Week 17. General manager Phil Emery again impressively navigated free agency, identifying his club’s greatest needs, devising a specific plan to correct those weaknesses and executing it. It’s too early to grade Emery’s most recent draft – or 2013’s, for that matter – but there’s a lot to be excited about. Although it’s true the three biggest windows for team building have closed – predraft free agency, the NFL draft and the furious wave of undrafted free-agent signings – all good GMs approach every day as a chance to improve the roster. Emery proved in his first two full offseasons that he’s always in roster grinding mode, scanning the waiver wire and exploring trade scenarios. Four current Bears – defensive end David Bass, tight end Dante Rosario, fullback Tony Fiammetta and defensive tackle Nate Collins – latched on with the Bears between the draft and the start of the regular season. We’re aware these aren’t necessarily household names, but they’ve had defined roles and are squarely in the mix for similar contributions in 2014. So what positions could Emery still target? If you guessed safety, check behind Door No. 1 to see what you’ve won. The problem there is that there aren’t enough good starting safeties to go around, much less guys who can be found on the street. Nonetheless – and admittedly, predicting which guys might be served their walking papers is never fun – a quick scan of the clubs that added safety help in the draft includes one, the

Bears linebacker Jon Bostic (from left), fullback Tony Fiammetta and tight end Dante Rosario walk off the field after a game against the Browns on Dec. 15 in Cleveland. Eagles, who could cut their losses later in the summer. Second-year safety Earl Wolff is one name to file away. He struggled as a rookie and doesn’t have the length Emery covets, but Wolff logged six starts and is surely feeling the heat after the arrival of veteran Malcolm Jenkins and fourth-rounder Ed Reynolds. The Bears passed on addressing the backup tight end position in a lackluster draft year at the position. Good call; Emery landed Rosario last summer for a seventh-rounder, and players of his ilk figure to come free again. Rosario, Fendi Onobun, Zach Miller and Matt Mulligan offer little as pass catchers, however, and Martellus Bennett could be even better with a second receiving threat for two-tight formations. After drafting Eric Ebron with the 10th overall pick, the Lions released young Matt Veldman. The Packers could be preparing to make a similar move with Andrew Quarless or perhaps Ryan Taylor, now that Richard Rodgers is in the mix. Hardly dynamic pass catchers, but just two examples – and more will arrive later in the offseason. The Cardinals released former second-rounder Ryan Williams, a running back who couldn’t get out of the train-

ing room and onto the field in the desert. Williams has medical red flags, but expect more recognizable names at a devalued position to surface. Will they be deemed by Emery as a better No. 3 option than Michael Ford, Shaun Draughn or Jordan Lynch? It’s certainly possible. One team’s releases to monitor, at running back and almost every other position, is the Niners. With Marcus Lattimore and now Carlos Hyde fighting for Frank Gore’s table scraps, Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James are intriguing. One more position to consider is middle linebacker. Jon Bostic lacked instincts for the spot in Year One, and D.J. Williams hasn’t played 16 games since 2010. Perhaps the two best postdraft signings a season ago were linebackers, Arizona’s Karlos Dansby and Baltimore’s Daryl Smith. Could the Bears, who’ll be down to roughly $2 million in cap space after rookie signings, pounce on someone like oft-injured Pat Angerer or troubled Erin Henderson? It’s more likely they’ll see what transpires over the waiver wire over the coming months, but rest assured, Emery and his personnel department will exhaust every option.

FOOD ‘THE BEST EATIN’ ONION THERE IS’ Medinah Shrine Club annual Vidalia onion fundraiser set for this weekend By DENISE M. BARAN–UNLAND dunland@shawmedia.com John “Jay Jay” Joseph will take a Vidalia onion, lop off the top, stuff a pat of butter inside, score and replace the top, and then grill it. “That’s the best eatin’ onion there is,” said Joseph, onion chairman for the Medinah Shrine Club’s annual Vidalia onion fundraiser and member of the club’s clown unit. On Saturday and Sunday, members from 36 Chicago-area organizations – including shrine clubs and associated marching units – will sell 8,500 10-pound bags of onions as far north as the Wisconsin border all the way down to Kankakee, Joseph said. This includes locations in Joliet (600 bags of onions) and Morris (800 bags of onions), Joseph added. Onions will cost $11 for a 10-pound bag or $20 for two 10-pound bags, Joseph said. He recently saw a 4-pound bag of Vidalia onions retail for $4.83 in a local grocery store, so the Shriners are offering a “fair deal.” The Shriners expect to make $20,000 in profit, he added, from this longstanding fundraiser. “I don’t know when they started doing this,” Joseph said, “but I’ve been a member for 40 years and they’ve been doing it at least that long.” Normally, the Shriners sell close to 12,000 bags of onions, Joseph said, but he cited the economy and an aging club population for the drop. “It’s an effort to get all these onions to all the locations,” Joseph said. “The go straight from the Georgia grower to us.” It’s a doubly sweet effort. Vidalia onions have a high sugar content, Joseph said, but, even sweeter, proceeds support Shriners outreach activities. A club news release said nationally, the Shriners support “a network of 22 non-

profit children’s hospitals around the country.” These hospitals provide services to children with “orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate.” Locally, proceeds from the onion sales will benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children on Oak Park Avenue in Chicago, Club Chairman Fred Martin said. “The [onion sale] money goes into a general fund,” Joseph said, “and they direct the funds as needed.” Members decide the number of bags they wish to sell and an order is placed. The onions left Georgia on Tuesday and should arrive at distribution centers on Thursday. They will then be hand-loaded into the vehicles of Shriners representatives, who then deliver them to other members. Martin said some businesses have allowed the Shriners to sell the onions at their location for decades. Many customers are equally as loyal. “We have a lot of people come up and tell us they could have gone to a major market

It’s amazing.” Martin likened the popularity of the Vidalia onion to blueberries: both are grown only in certain times of the year and at certain locations, enhancing their appeal. For optimal freshness and longer shelf life, Joseph recommends rewrapping the onions individually. He’s known people to use paper towel, newspapers and even hair nets. “It’s the high sugar content,” Joseph said. “For some reason, if they touch each other, they go bad faster.” Not sure how to use those onions?

When butter has melted but before it starts to brown, add onions and toss to coat with melted butter. Cover, turn heat on very low and slowly cook onions for 15 minutes. Slightly turn up the heat and cook for another 10 minutes, until onions are soft, tender and sweet. Season with salt and pepper. Add the stock liquid, thyme twigs and lower the heat to simmer for 25 minutes. While the broth and onions are cooking, toast the French bread and set aside. To serve, remove thyme twigs from the mixture. Ladle the onion soup into a bowl. Place one or two slices of toasted French bread in the middle and cover with mozzarella cheese. Place under a broiler until the cheese has melted. Yield: 4 servings.

Place on an outdoor grill heated to medium-high heat. Cook, wrapped, for 15 to 20 minutes or until the onion has started to soften. Open foil very carefully so as not to lose the juice. Use bread or rolls to sop up the liquid. Yield: 4 servings.

32 CROSSWORD

An exception to the finesse rule

CELEBRITY CIPHER

Paul Valery, a French poet, essayist and philosopher who died in 1945, said, “Every thought is an exception to the general rule that people don’t think.” Perhaps the primary reason that bridge has remained so popular is that there always seem to be exceptions to the “rules” of the game. When taking a finesse you wish to repeat, often you lead the lowest card that can hold the trick if the finesse is winning. Then you can immediately repeat it. But that is not always the case. In this deal, South is in four spades. West leads a low diamond. East takes the trick with his 10 and returns a low diamond. After ruffing, how should declarer continue? South might have immediately overcalled four spades, but wondered about a slam. West made a negative double, promising four hearts. East’s double was for takeout; it was a tad aggressive, but the singleton spade improved his hand’s value. South must hold his losers to one in each side suit. Since West has a club honor, this requires taking two club finesses and leading toward the heart king. So, declarer seems to need three dummy entries, but he has only two: the spade jack and ace. However, he can do it if he is thoughtful. South draws trumps ending in the dummy. Then comes the key play: He must lead the club two and play his jack. West wins and leads another diamond. Declarer ruffs, crosses to dummy with a spade, and runs the club nine. Still in the dummy, he can then lead a heart up to his king – mission accomplished.


DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips tional eating adventure. All of them are simple, easy-to-read and delicious. One reader described creating place cards for her guests decorated with hearts and flowers. The centerpiece was a “bouquet” of envelopes addressed to me. Another reader said she copied questions from my column, printed them out and, as a party game, asked her guests to supply the answers. (She said that after a few glasses of wine, some of the responses were hilarious, but couldn’t be printed in a family newspaper.) My cookbooklet set contains more than 100 tasty recipes, ranging from soups to salads, appetizers, main courses and desserts, that can be used when families get together to celebrate holidays and other

special occasions. My mother used many of them when she hosted parties, as have I. To order, send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $14 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby Cookbooklet Set, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. You will find tips on entertaining at the beginning of the first booklet. Anyone who hasn’t entertained before should be sure to read them. By following these suggestions, even the most nervous, first-time host can be confident. I know you will enjoy the recipes as much as we have and serve them with pride.

Outsmarting your anger will be good for your health Dear Doctor K: What can I do to calm myself when I’m angry? Dear Reader: Anger is often called “the fire inside.” It is one of our most powerful and primal human emotions. But in the modern world, anger can get in the way of our work, relationships and social interactions. In his thoughtful, instructive and award-winning book, “Outsmarting Anger,” my Harvard Medical School colleague, Dr. Joseph Shrand, and Leigh Devine explain how to recognize and manage your anger. (You can learn more about the book on my website, AskDoctorK.com.) Anger stems from the limbic system, one of the more primitive parts of our brain. By “primitive,” I mean that many animals have a limbic system – even lizards. Our ability to process and tame anger comes from a more recently evolved section of the brain called the prefrontal cortex. You may have experienced people who don’t seem to have a very highly developed prefrontal cortex – like the current mayor of a large Canadian city. Or the late comedian Rodney Dangerfield (though that was just part of his act).

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff It’s difficult to control the anger you feel – but you can control whether and how you act on it. “Outsmarting Anger” explains how to recognize, listen to and think about your anger. The key is in this shift from feeling to thinking: turning down the limbic system and turning up the prefrontal cortex. There are no physical dials, but you can learn how to control the imaginary ones. A simple exercise that can help you begin to control your anger is to construct a personal anger scale. First, write down 10 words that describe escalating intensities of anger. “Irritation,” “frustration” and “rage” are examples of anger words. Assign each word a number from 1 to 10 (10 being the angriest). Now, write down some things that trigger your anger. Give each item a word and number from your anger scale. For example: • Slow Internet connection (irritation, 1)

• Rude service at a restaurant (frustration, 3) • A driver who cuts you off (rage, 8) This exercise forces you to think about your anger, rather than just feeling it. Once you’ve classified your level of anger, think your way through it. What needs to change for your anger to downshift from a 5 to a 3? Would it help to talk to someone you trust? To write down your feelings rather than expressing them in the heat of the moment? Finally, consider regular exercise and meditation. Both can help you feel more relaxed, allowing your prefrontal cortex, or “anger management center,” to operate most effectively. In the past 20 years, we’ve learned that our anger doesn’t just make us difficult to live with and do stupid and self-defeating things. It also breeds heart disease – particularly sudden death. That’s another good reason to learn how to “outsmart” your anger.

Dr. Wallace: I’m a first-year student at a university in Indiana. I’ve adjusted well to the school and do not want to consider a transfer. However, the school has recently issued a warning because of a case of date rape, and this has caused me to be very fearful. I realize that most guys are decent and would never consider this, but there is always the chance that a new date would take advantage of someone they are dating. The girls in my dorm and I were discussing the issue and are wondering if you could provide us with a “What to do list” to help us avoid the possibility of being a victim. It would be extremely helpful for all the girls in our school. – University freshman in Indiana. Dear University Freshman: Rape is a serious crime whether the attacker is a stranger or the guy who has just taken you to dinner and a movie. It is a matter of rising concern on both high school and college campuses, with many schools addressing the problem. At Rice University in Houston, for instance, the students launched a program called SOAR – Students Organized Against Rape. This program discusses rape prevention, sets the story straight on common myths about rape and stresses the need for victims to get help. Dear Teen: TEEN Magazine has also printed a story about date rape. Their suggestions for preventing it should prove useful: • Whenever you go out alone with a guy, make sure you tell someone whom you’ll be with and where you’ll be going. • If a guy invites you to his house, make sure

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace someone else will be there, too – a parent, sibling or friend. • If you start to feel uncomfortable around a guy (even if it seems as though you have no concrete reason to feel uneasy) trust your instincts. • If a guy starts coming on too strong or begins to force himself on you sexually, make it VERY clear that you’re not interested. • Always stay in control of your senses. If you use drugs or alcohol, your judgment can become clouded. • Learn to fend off a potential attacker. Enroll in a self-defense class or a rape-prevention workshop. Dr. Wallace: I’m in the seventh grade and my counselor wants me to skip eighth grade and enroll in ninth grade next September. She said that since I am a very bright student, I’d be wasting my time in eighth grade. My mom asked me to write to you for your opinion. – Nameless, Miami, Fla. Dear Nameless: I’m not in favor of having a bright student skip a grade. Basically, all that happens is the student graduates from high school and begins college a year sooner than usual. Some students who have skipped a school year find it difficult to adjust socially because of that “lost” year. Contrary to what your counselor believes, you can gain much from your teachers and fellow students during the eighth grade. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@ galesburg.net.

Dear Abby: I love cooking for my wife and friends. There are few things I find more pleasing than to put out a nice spread of food and watch people enjoy. I’m always on the lookout for more cookbooks, and you hold the key to my next big party. I was reading through your archives and have seen many people asking about your cookbooklets. I’d love to get them. Can you print the ordering information again, so I can be sure I’m sending the right amount to the right place?

How ESPN, Michael Sam broke new ground By PAUL FARHI The Washington Post The kiss seen ’round the sports world on ESPN took quite a bit of planning and a whole lot of luck. Like football fans everywhere, ESPN knew that Michael Sam, the first openly gay pro football prospect, was going to be the story of last week’s NFL draft. What it didn’t know was whether Sam would even be drafted, given the attention generated by the self-disclosure of his sexual orientation in February and his fading stock among draft watchers. Nevertheless, ESPN’s cameras were in place Saturday when St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher called Sam at his agent’s house in San Diego to tell the former University of Missouri defensive lineman that they had selected him in the seventh and last round of the draft. What the cameras caught next was something remarkable – and certainly rarely seen on Disney-owned ESPN: a tearful Sam receiving congratulations from his boyfriend, Vito Cammisano, complete with a kiss between the two men. Congratulatory kisses are common in sports, although they usually occur between husbands and wives or boyfriends and girlfriends. This one drew alternating waves of shock, anger and gratitude from around the Twittersphere and elsewhere after ESPN aired it, on a tape-delayed basis, at 6:40 p.m. EST Saturday followed quickly by a replay on the NFL Network. Some, like GLAAD (the organization formerly known as the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Discrimination), said it was “a significant milestone,” according to Ross Murray, its director of news. “It was touching,” Murray said. But many – including some players – recoiled: “Im not watching @espn until this Michael Sam story dies. It’s gross. I’m not tryna watch 2 dudes kiss on a sports show,” was one of the milder anti-Sam sentiments on Twitter. Miami Dolphins player Don Jones tweeted, “OMG,” though he later deleted it, and another critical comment, and apologized. The coverage of Sam’s big moment took several months of planning by ESPN, which began preparing to follow Sam’s progress in the draft shortly after he publicly came out in February. “We talked about it in production meetings

Michael Sam was selected by St. Louis in the seventh round as the 249th overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, becoming the first publicly gay player to be drafted in the league. for months,” said Seth Markman, who oversaw ESPN’s draft coverage. “We knew he’d be in the draft, but we didn’t know what round. We knew we had to figure out a way to attack it.” Based on its draft projections, ESPN reckoned that Sam would go in the later rounds – if he made it at all. As such, the network decided not to assign a camera crew to him on Thursday or Friday, when teams made their first selections (the network had gained exclusive access to Sam because it is producing a feature on him to go with an award he will receive at the network’s ESPY Awards in July). In any case, it opted to wait until Saturday – the draft’s final day – to turn its cameras on him, figuring that Sam, disappointed by not being picked early, might be too discouraged to let a crew trail him to the bitter end. The network also agreed that it wouldn’t air any footage if Sam wasn’t picked. After nearly a full day of waiting, Sam got the call from the Rams a little after 6 p.m. He was the 249th player selected out of 256. His family and friends began to celebrate. And at that moment, ESPN’s producers in New York lost the live feed from California, where its crew was with Sam. A thunderstorm near network headquarters in Bristol, Conn., knocked out a relay of the California feed from Bristol to Manhattan. Fortunately, the ESPN crew in Cali-

fornia caught the emotional celebration on tape and fed a recording back to the network’s draft-production truck outside Radio City Music Hall in New York. ESPN’s producer in California, Maura Mandt, told Markman, “It’s great! It’s emotional!” Which is exactly what Markman said he saw when he saw the feed. “Honestly, when it was coming in, we have a very young production crew here, everyone in the [production] truck thought, ‘How great is this!’ No one was speaking up saying, ‘We shouldn’t show this.’ The reaction was, this is no different than a heterosexual guy kissing his girlfriend. It’s emotional, and let’s show it. It was only afterward that we realized we showed a man kissing a man. And we thought, ‘Well, that’s different.’ “ Another apparent first: As part of its coverage, the network also featured reaction from a draft party at a gay bar, Gym Sportsbar, in West Hollywood. After the kiss had aired and the negative Twitter reaction started rolling in, Markman says, the network realized it had touched a nerve. “It’s a shame,” he says. “Our job is to document the draft. It’s a news event, and we’re covering the news. As producers we don’t make social and political decisions. I’m glad we’re talking about this [the decision to show the kiss] than talking about why we decided to cut out of that shot or not have the shot at all.”
