• Relevant information • Marketing Solutions • Community Advocates JOLIET – A coat of paint stood in the way of a developer’s plan to fix up a landmark home on the city’s near-west side. Michael Tannura of Worth is renovating a two-unit residence at 509 Plainfield Road, near the University of St. Francis. The two-story house, built in 1871, was certified as a local landmark in 2001 as “one of the earliest structures on ‘Old Plank Road’ [U.S. 30 in Joliet].” Tannura’s request to cover the building’s clapboard wood siding with vinyl siding and wood trim with aluminum capping was shot down by the Joliet Historic Preservation Commission earlier this year. Tannura maintained that installation of vinyl siding would cost about $5,800, compared to $6,000 for re-painting the building. But the need to repaint the wood siding roughly every seven years would make the investment financially unsustainable, Tannura told the commission. A second request for siding based on economic hardship also was denied by the commission. On Monday, Tannura took his case to the Joliet City Council, hoping to have the commis-

sion’s decision overturned. Tannura purchased the property in April 2008 for $205,000. Its current market value is “substantially” below that amount, he said. “I simply cannot rationally spend $6,000 every six years – $1,000 per year – when the best I can reasonably expect to make is $700 per year,” Tannura said. City planner Kendall Jackson told the council that the building’s clapboard siding, which was restored in 2001 after being covered in asphalt shingles, was a key reason it was given landmark status in the first place. Jackson said the commission believed that future maintenance costs on the property could be recovered by Tannura renting out both units, and possibly increasing the rent. Tannura said his income estimates were based on full rentals with minimal maintenance issues. Councilman Jim McFarland asked what benefits the home’s landmark status provided for it. “Is there a plaque? Do people come and view it?” McFarland said, noting, “I see a lot of homes in the area in need of painting. Here we have an individual who is trying to fix one up.” Councilwoman Jan Quill-

man questioned the need for re-painting the building every seven years. “There’s paint out there that will last 20 to 25 years,” Quillman said. “That goes against everything I’ve researched,” Tannura replied. In the end, the council unanimously rejected Tannura’s request for a hardship appeal. He now has the option of painting the home or having it de-certified as a local landmark. De-certification involves working through the commission and city council again, Jackson said. But while landmark designation provides no economic benefits for the owner, Tannura said he wants to maintain the historic property. “It is in remarkably good condition and I wish to keep it so,” Tannura said. “I want to keep it nice.” In other action, the city council approved a $1.4 million budget amendment that included a 2 percent raise for nonunion personnel, funds for tree replacement and work at Silver Cross Field, snow-related expenses and changes in the command structures of the police and fire departments. The increases will be covered by the city’s budget surplus.

Lockport D-205 officials recognize departing business services director By FELIX SARVER LOCKPORT – At his last board meeting for Lockport High School District 205, Richard Lesniak was recognized by school officials and staff for his work as the business services director. Lesniak, who has been with the district for nearly a decade, plans to retire June 30. He has excelled in everything he has done with the district, such as serving as the band director, teacher, building administrator and district administrator, said Anthony

Cundari, assistant superintendent of personnel, at Monday’s school board meeting. In each position, he had a tremendous impact on the district, he said. Lesniak will be replaced by Stefanie Croix effective July 1. Croix worked for Lesniak since 2006 and served as the accounting manager at Matteson Elementary School District 162 from 2005 to 2006. When school officials thanked Lesniak for his dedication to the district on behalf of the board, community and staff, he extended his own appreciation. Previously, he

said he felt proud about his career with the school district. Also, at Monday’s board meeting, school board members held a public hearing on amendments to the fiscal year budget. Lesniak said some of the amended items to the budget included an $800,000 abatement in property taxes and $400,000 in costs to the school district when a group objected to the district’s tax rates. Lesniak said the school officials appealed the group’s tax rate objection and the case is still pending in court.

Elwood’s chief Fred Hayes will head state association, just like his father By BRIAN STANLEY ELWOOD – The local police chief will become the chief of the state’s police chiefs. Fred Hayes is set to be sworn in Saturday as president of the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police. “I can share my experience of operating the fourth-largest police department in the state and one of the smallest. I think that’s given me a unique perspective,” Hayes said. He spent 31 years on the Joliet Police Department, which had 275 officers when he served as chief from 2006 to 2011. The Elwood Police Department, which he’s led since 2011, has 10 full-time officers. While chiefs from larger departments, which have more activity, and smaller departments, which have fewer resources, can’t always relate, Hayes believes networking benefits both. “While there are some variances, I’ve learned the problems are extremely similar. The basics of policing are universal,” Hayes said. The ILACP is made up of 800 agencies and about 1,200 members. New bosses can reach out to veterans about issues they’ve faced in command. The association’s policies can be offered to smaller departments that experience a lineof-duty death or officer-involved shooting, Hayes said. “Something like that can be a huge burden on the department, which still has to continue operations. We’re as much a resource for the community as the police department,” Hayes said. When a police chief has to be replaced immediately, the ILACP has “linebacker chiefs,” typically recent retirees, who can fill in until a permanent successor is selected. Once elected to the executive board, officers usually ascend to the presidency

BELOW: Hayes listens to the driver Thursday. through one-year terms as vice presidents. “At the conference a few years ago, they were showing the past presidents’ pictures on screen and I saw my dad. The president at the time said it’d be neat to have a father-son combination one day. That planted the seed,” Hayes said. The late Fred Hayes Sr. served as Romeoville police chief from 1966 to 1983. Hayes will be sworn in by Will County Chief Judge Richard Schoenstedt. Lemont Police Chief Kevin Shaughnessy will serve as master of ceremonies and Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy will be the guest speaker. Hayes said he invited Mc-

Carthy because then-superintendent Richard Brzeczek was the speaker at his father’s installation dinner in 1980. “I was still on the list for the Joliet police, and Superintendent Brzeczek was with my parents at the dais so I got seated next to his top deputy James Riordan,” Hayes recalled. “We talked about police work and Riordan went out of his way to offer encouragement and really good advice. That night really crystallized what I wanted to do as a police officer,” Hayes said. “He told me, ‘Always work hard. Remain professional.’ I’ve never forgotten that.” Riordan was killed a year

later escorting an armed drunk out of a restaurant while he was off duty. “A police officer is an honorable profession. There’s

high integrity. I hope hearing Superintendent McCarthy and the others can plant that seed again for someone,” Hayes said.

Motives for shooting still unknown By BRIAN STANLEY DWIGHT – A pink rose, a white rose and two votive candles lay at the base of the tree holding the crime scene tape Monday outside the Denker home in Dwight. At 4:38 a.m. Saturday a 911 call brought police to the residence at 200 W. North St. in Dwight where a man said he’d been shot. The bodies of Donna J. Denker, 60, and Kelli L. Denker, 30, were found lying on the floor along with the injured man, authorities said. Dwight police sent a news release late Monday afternoon stating that autopsy results show the women died from gunshot wounds. The man was taken to Morris Hospital and later airlifted to a trauma center. He is recovering from his wounds, according to the news release. “Surrounding law enforcement agencies consisting of over 40 men and women are working tirelessly to apprehend the subject or subjects who are responsible for this terrible tragedy,”

Information sought Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact Dwight police at 815-584-3132. After 5 p.m. call the LivCom line at 815844-0911.

authorities said in the news release. “Officers continue to follow up on leads and have interviewed several people in this case.” On Monday, it did not appear anyone was inside the yellow single-story home, which occupies a corner lot in the middle of an older residential neighborhood. A hallway light could be seen from the front window, and an electronic alarm clock buzzed incessantly from an open window on the side of the house. Neighbors who were home for the afternoon declined to be interviewed about what happened, but one man called the family “good neighbors.” A few blocks away at JT’s Saloon, the homicides were discussed among a few people sitting at the bar with mostly conjecture and spec-

ulation. “There’s a dozen stories out, but nobody actually knows anything. We’d like to know what’s going on, but they’re being very tightlipped,” said an employee who declined to give her name. Village President Jared Anderson did not immediately return messages left Monday afternoon. Dwight Chief Tim Henson said in the news release that Dwight police are being assisted by Pontiac police, Livingston County Coroner’s Office, Livingston County State’s Attorney’s Office, Livingston County Sheriff’s Department, Illinois State Police Zone 5 Investigations, Illinois State Police Crime Scene Tech Services, Grundy County Sheriff’s Department, Morris police, Streator police, Wilmington police, Seneca police, Channahon police, Illinois State Police Crime Lab and the Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System. “Please be assured that all of the departments are dedicating all available resources to this case,” according to the Dwight police release.

Police say two women were killed and a man was shot early Saturday in this house on North Street in Dwight.

First Hickory Street murder trial could be in July By BRIAN STANLEY JOLIET – One of the three remaining suspects in the Hickory Street killings could face a bench trial next month. Judge Gerald Kinney on Monday set a date of July 14 for Bethany L. McKee to be tried on murder charges for the Jan. 10, 2013, deaths of Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins. In a separate matter involving another defendant, Kinney heard testimony on whether comments made by Joshua F. Miner to detectives should be

used when he is tried. McKee ap peared Monday before Kinney along with Miner and defendant Adam M. Bethany L. McKee Landerman. Along with Alisa Massaro, the three are accused of luring the victims to Massaro’s house in the 1100 block of Hickory Street to rob and kill them. Massaro pleaded guilty last month to charges of robbery and concealing a homi-

cide. She was sentenced to 10 years in prison in exchange for testifying against the other defendants. L a n d e r - Joshua F. man’s defense Miner attorneys are still waiting for a psychological evaluation report. After Kinney set McKee’s trial date, he heard testimony to decide if Miner’s statements to detectives are admissible evidence.

As Landerman and McKee were led back to the Will County jail, Miner was unshackled and allowed to sit with his law- Adam M. Landerman yers. Assistant Will County State’s Attorney Dan Walsh said during the 24 hours Miner was at the police station he was given breaks to eat, go to the bathroom and sleep. “He said ‘I don’t want to be bogus, but since there’s dead

people I want to tell you everything ... but I don’t want to say the wrong words or [be misunderstood],’” Walsh told the judge. Det. Patrick Schumacher testified Miner signed the Miranda rights waiver and appeared to understand the questions he was being asked. Schumacher denied that anyone threatened or coerced Miner while he was questioned. Kinney will review the recordings of Miner in the interview room and continue with the case Thursday.

Parents tried to save Insurer drops flood suit against boy who drowned in Will County, other communities Morris pool Sunday By LAUREN LEONE–CROSS

By CHRISTINA CHAPMAN–VAN YPEREN MORRIS – The parents of a toddler who drowned in a Morris backyard pool tried to save him, the Grundy County coroner said Monday. The child and his parents, who were from Rockford, were attending a family party Sunday, Coroner John Callahan said. Mark Vaughn pulled his 3-year-old son, Liam, out of the above-ground pool. His wife, Ashley, joined Mark in trying to resuscitate their son with CPR, according to the coroner’s account. “It is an unfortunate tragedy that brings up that constant reminder of how just a few seconds can be so fragile,” Callahan said. There were many family members in the backyard and

several children in the pool at the time of the accident, Callahan said. Ashley Vaughn went inside the home to check on another child and the father was standing on a deck near the pool. The child had gotten out of the pool and taken his water floats off his arms to eat. “In just a brief moment, Liam apparently jumped back into the pool without the floats. Within a moment, dad realized Liam was not by the food and then saw his son face down in the pool,” Callahan said in a news release sent Sunday. The boy’s father jumped in and retrieved his son, and he and his wife immediately began CPR. A 911 call was placed and Liam was transported to Morris Hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after 4 p.m. An autopsy confirmed the boy died of drowning, Callahan said.

Less than two months after the initial filing, Farmers Insurance Co. has dropped a class-action lawsuit against Will County and several other counties, as well as dozens of communities, claiming those governments failed to prevent damages caused by heavy flooding last spring. Ultimately, the lawsuit

sought to recover funds the insurance company paid out to more than 600 property owners affected by the April 2013 flooding. At the time of the filing, company spokesman Trent Frager described the damage as “completely preventable.” Charles Pelkie, spokesman for the Will County State’s Attorney’s office, said the dismissal was filed June 9, but declined further comment.

The Will County lawsuit had listed the county along with 12 municipalities as defendants: Joliet, Bolingbrook, Plainfield, New Lenox, Shorewood, Frankfort, Lockport, Manhattan, Channahon, Homer Glen, Naperville and University Park. Similar lawsuits had been filed the same day in Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, LaSalle and McHenry counties.

THE HERALD–NEWS Three park or museum facilities in Will County will get more than $1 million in state grant money for repair work, improvements or new exhibits. The Forest Preserve District of Will County’s Isle a la Cache Museum is one of the 47 museums set to receive funding through the state’s Public

Museum Capital Grants Program, which is administrated by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. The Isle a la Cache museum will receive about $270,000 to cover the renovation and reconstruction of the facility’s Native American longhouse, which first opened in 2003 and needs to be replaced. “This grant allows us to re-

place an 11-year-old structure, something the district would not have been able to do otherwise,” Lynn Kurczewski, superintendent of public programs and education for the Forest Preserve District, said in a district news release. The funding also will go toward accessibility upgrades, a campfire circle, landscaping and a garden. The museum,

501 E. Romeo Road, offers visitors a look into 18th century history, when Illinois was home to French voyageurs and native Potawatomi, according to the news release. Grant money was open to any museum operation by local governments or located on municipality-owned land. Other Will County projects funded through the state’s

museum grants program are: • Joliet’s Bird Haven Greenhouse is set to receive $741,000, covering the total project costs of installing a glass ceiling, shade cloth and new growing houses. • Just over $104,000 will go to Hidden Oaks Nature Center in Bolingbrook to construct a wood pavilion with a fireplace, tables and seating.

Will County Board expected to Job fair led to 75 employment offers vote on courthouse plan this week By LAUREN LEONE–CROSS

JOLIET – The county will inch closer to a new courthouse downtown with the Will County Board’s expected vote this week on a $1.3 million contract outlining preliminary design work. Representatives of the Darien-based Wight & Co. architectural firm will present their scope of services Thursday at the board’s monthly

The U.S. Route 6 (Maple Road) project will impact the property at the northwest corner of the U.S. Route 6 (Maple Road) and Gougar Road in the Village of New Lenox and the City of Joliet, Will County. IDOT requires the acquisition of Permanent Easement and Temporary Easement in order to construct the turning radius at the north corner of the intersection, to connect the proposed 7 foot sidewalk to the existing Spring Creek Greenway Trail at the northwest quadrant of the intersection, and to re-grade the ditches along the west side of Gougar Road. IDOT is seeking public comments on the acquisition of this Permanent Easement and the Temporary Easement at the Hadley Valley Forest Preserve. This is the first opportunity for the public to comment on the additional public land needed for this project.

The county bought the building, 158 N. Scott St., for $850,000, last year. It is estimated the county will save $250,000 a year in lease expenses alone by shifting the recorder of deeds office there. Moving the coroner’s administrative office also frees up space in the Emco Building at 57 N. Ottawa St. The Emco Building currently houses the state’s attorney’s office and could one day serve as space for the public defender’s office.

IDOT is seeking public comments on impacts the U.S. Route 6 (Maple Road) at Gougar Road project will have on Hadley Valley Forest Preserve which is owned and operated by the Forest Preserve District of Will County.

Illinois Department of Employment Security director “We connect job seekers with skill sets that employers are looking for. Then we send those resumes to the employer and ask them who they want to interview,” he said. “That’s why so many people end up getting hired at these events.” Rowell said “thousands” of individuals have been hired through the state’s online job-link portal since it was launched in 2012. Last year, the department helped 12,400 veterans find work, according to a news release.

meeting. The company’s work includes a concept plan, construction cost estimates, county population projections and tours of other courthouses. Building a new courthouse could cost between $140 million and $200 million. The County Board also is expected to vote Thursday on an agreement to move the county’s recorder of deeds and coroner’s offices to the former Social Security Administration building downtown.

Several dozen unemployed veterans were offered jobs on the spot at a Joliet job fair earlier this month, thanks to the state’s hiring portal that pre-matches companies with potential employees. The job fair, hosted June 5 by the Illinois Department of Employment Security, resulted in 75 job offers, out of the 166 interviewed, said Jay Rowell, the department’s director. The department’s pre-registration and outreach efforts helps set the event apart from “your normal job fair,” Rowell said. “With a typical job fair, you encourage some employers to attend the event. They have whatever job openings they have and then you invite job seekers,” he said. “There’s really no screening or matching done prior. You have to hope that someone with the right skill set meets with the right employer at the booth that needs that skill set.” For the job fair at Joliet Junior College earlier this month, employers were required to give the department a list of openings and skill requirements in advance, he said. That allowed staff to link worker resumes with employer openings before the event through the state’s help-wanted hiring website,, he said.

Frankfort plans for improvements By FELIX SARVER FRANKFORT – Village board members will consider voting on several measures to improve sidewalks and construct a weapons training facility at their next board meeting. When the board meets June 23, they will consider approval of a sidewalk replacement program that will run this year. Village trustee Richard Trevarthan, who is also chair of the departmental operations committee where the program was unanimously approved, said there have been sidewalk issues in the village, and officials plan to replace roughly 80 sections of them. “Frankfort is 100 years old. It’s an old town,” Trevarthan said. “Through the years, there’s been different sidewalks built.” While village workers do not plan to replace all sidewalks that have been a problem in the village, Trevarthan said they plan to make a big dent with the sidewalk program this year. The bid for the project will be awarded to Whiteline Construction Inc. for $78,000. Board members also are set to consider approval of two contracts for a weapons training facility to be run by the Frankfort Police Department. The facility would be located on an 11acre property behind the Public Works Department on South Center Road. Trevarthan said the facility would not be open to the public. The bid for site restoration would go to RNR Contractors Inc. for $47,418 and the bid for fence installation to Custom Built Fence and Deck for $18,324, he said. At the June 9 departmental operations committee meeting, Trevarthan said committee members discussed the expansion of the village administration building.

Village officials approved about a $4 million bid from Construction Solutions of Illinois Inc. to build a new village board room and community meeting room at the building. The Linden Group was approved to be the architectural firm for the project. Trevarthan said the initial foundation for the site has been completed and the detention pond has been built. “Otherwise, there is no major construction that has started yet,” he said. For the last several years, village board members have been meeting in the basement of the Frankfort Police Department he said.

By CHRISTINA CHAPMAN–VAN YPEREN MORRIS – A Mokena man who was killed in a motorcycle crash Saturday died from blunt force trauma injuries to his abdomen area, according to autopsy results. Matthew Domzal, 35, lost control of his motorcycle while riding with a group on Route 6 just east of Brisbin Road, according to a news release from Grundy County Coroner John Callahan’s office.

Domzal was riding toward the back of the group when his motorcycle went down on the pavement, according to the news release. He was not wearing a helmet. His motorcycle was the only one to go down, the coroner said Monday. An autopsy done Sunday morning showed he died of blunt force trauma injuries to the abdominal area, Callahan said. The exam showed no indication of medical issues that may have occurred to cause the crash.

Grundy County Sheriff Kevin Callahan said Monday a reconstructionist was sent to the scene Saturday and that some other riders in the group still had to be interviewed. As of Monday the sheriff said the reason Domzal’s motorcycle went down was unknown and there was no new information available on the incident. Domzal was transported Saturday afternoon to Morris Hospital and pronounced dead upon arrival. JOLIET – Firefighters dealt with two unrelated fires Sunday and early Monday. The first occurred about noon Sunday when residents of the 800 block of First Avenue saw the enclosed porch of a vacant house “engulfed” in flames, according to Battalion Chief Mike Stromberg. Stromberg said the fire caused some damage to the house, which was being renovated. About 12:45 a.m. Monday,

crews were called to a basement fire at a home in the 400 block of North Hickory Street. “When they arrived two adults and two dogs had climbed out a second floor window onto the roof of the porch, so reaching them was the first priority,” Stromberg said. The occupants and pets were rescued safely while the basement and first floor sustained heat and smoke damage. Stromberg said Monday that both fires are under investigation.

Quinn signs Illinois Medicaid cuts restoration

CHICAGO – Gov. Pat Quinn signed a law Monday that would restore some Medicaid cuts the state made in 2012 and could give Illinois access to about $2.4 billion in federal money over the next few years. The new law seeks about $400 million in federal matching funds for the approximately 349,000 new Medicaid sign-ups in Illinois under the Affordable Care Act expansion. The other money would come from extending the state’s hospital assessment programs over four years. Illinois hospitals pay a tax to the state for federal Medicaid matching funds and that money gets redistributed to health care providers.

Proponents hailed the new law as a way capitalize on federal money and improve the state’s safety net for the most vulnerable residents. About 3 million Illinois residents receive Medicaid, the state and federal program that pays medical expenses for the poor and disabled. Illinois reformed its program in 2012, with major cuts. The new law restores the cuts to adult dental and podiatry services.

Landing a job with the help of friends in high places was long part of the way things worked in The City That Works, and it helped Mayor Richard J. Daley, the legendary iron-fisted boss of Chicago from the 1950s until the mid-’70s, assemble his vaunted political machine. It was often said, only half-jokingly, that Chicago officials had this attitude about job-seekers: “We don’t want nobody that nobody sent.”



Judge lifts federal oversight on Chicago hiring

U. of Illinois – Chicago names possible Obama site

CHICAGO – Who you know may not be enough to land a job at Chicago’s City Hall anymore. A federal judge on Monday ended nine years of federal oversight of Chicago municipal hiring, agreeing the nation’s third-largest city has put effective mechanisms in place to curb illegal patronage, or the hiring of people based on their political or personal connections.

CHICAGO – The University of Illinois-Chicago has added a third potential site to its bid for the Obama Presidential Library. The Chicago Sun-Times reports the university said Monday that the new potential site includes 23 acres west of campus. An abandoned rail viaduct that Sears once used cuts through the site. Two previously announced potential locations are on campus.

State officials: eBay plans to expand into Chicago

CHICAGO – Online auction giant eBay Inc. confirmed Monday that it will expand into Chicago, adding 360 jobs over three years. The company will lease a 60,000-square-foot office in the city’s Merchandise Mart building downtown, Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity spokesman David Roeder said. The company’s senior director for U.S., state and local government relations, David London, said eBay is proud to invest in what it sees as Chicago’s

growing tech sector. San Jose, California-based eBay bought Chicago tech startup Braintree for $800 million last year. Braintree provides online and mobile payment services.


Illini surprise Hill with trip home for big day

CHAMPAIGN – University of Illinois center Alex Hill didn’t think he could afford to do much for his daughter’s fourth birthday. At best a Skype call with the little girl back in Louisiana. But his Illini teammates had other ideas. According to The News-Gazette in Champaign, fellow offensive linemen Tony Durkin and Ted Karras collected the $250 cost of a train ticket from teammates and told Hill to pack his bags. The 17-hour trip got Hill back to Slidell, Louisiana, in time for Jordyn’s birthday on April 25. Hill says he can’t say enough to express his thanks.

Iraqi federal policemen watch Monday as Shiite tribal fighters deploy with their weapons in the northwest Baghdad’s Shula neighborhood in Iraq. Sunni militants captured a key northern Iraqi town along the highway to Syria early on Monday, compounding the woes of Iraq’s Shiite-led government a week after it lost a vast swath of territory to the insurgents in the country’s north.

More U.S. troops to Iraq; special forces considered The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – The U.S. is urgently deploying several hundred armed troops in and around Iraq and considering sending an additional contingent of special forces soldiers as Baghdad struggles to repel a rampant insurgency, even as the White House insists anew that America will not be dragged into another war. President Barack Obama notified Congress on Monday that up to 275 troops could be sent to Iraq to provide support and security for U.S. personnel and the American Embassy in Baghdad. About 170 of those forces have already arrived and another 100 soldiers will be on standby in a nearby country until they are needed, a U.S. official said. While Obama has vowed to keep U.S. forces out of combat in Iraq, he said in his notification to Congress that the personnel moving into the region are equipped for direct fighting. And separately, three U.S. officials said the White House

was considering sending a contingent of special forces soldiers to Iraq. Their limited mission, which has not been approved, would focus on training and advising beleaguered Iraqi troops, many of whom have fled their posts across the nation’s north and west as the al-Qaida-inspired insurgency has advanced in the worst threat to the country since American troops left in 2011. The moves come at the White House wrestles with an array of options for helping Iraq repel a Sunni Muslim insurgency that has captured large swaths of territory collaring Baghdad, the capital of the Shiite-led government. In a rare move, U.S. officials reached out to Iran Monday to discuss ways the longtime foes might help stop the militants known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The conversations took place on the sidelines of separate nuclear negotiations taking place in Vienna, Austria. U.S. officials quickly tamped down speculation that the discussion might include mil-

itary coordination or consultation, though Secretary of State John Kerry said in an interview with Yahoo! News that the U.S. would “not rule out anything that would be constructive.” Kerry stressed that any contacts with Iran would move “step-by-step.” Taken together, the developments suggest a willingness by Obama to send Americans into a collapsing security situation in order to quell the brutal fighting in Iraq before it morphs into outright war. The White House said the forces authorized for support and security will assist with the temporary relocation of some staff from the Baghdad embassy. The forces are entering Iraq with the consent of that country’s government, the White House said. Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby said the troops on standby could “provide airfield management, security, and logistics support, if required.” They could work with embassy security teams or operate as a stand-alone force as directed.

Farmers must lead, not resist, change Iowans are getting a heavy dose of references to this state’s agricultural roots this election year with campaign talk of castrated hogs, peeping chicks and farmers with or without law degrees. These may seem like frivolous distractions, but farming enjoys an exalted status in Iowa politics. That status is under attack, however, and not just from outsiders. Like other Americans, Iowans have grown skeptical of, if not hostile to, some aspects of modern farming, including genetically modified seeds and chemical additives in food. They want to know what is in their food and how livestock is treated. The public may have a fondness for this state’s agricultural roots, but times have changed. Family farms are increasingly consolidated into sprawling corporate mega-farms, and livestock production has become industrialized, with hogs and chickens confined by the tens of thousands in climate-controlled buildings. Iowa got a black eye nationally with the recent guilty pleas to criminal charges by Austin “Jack” DeCoster and his son, Peter DeCoster, for their role in the nationwide salmonella outbreak from tainted eggs. The people of Iowa are also concerned about the impact of agriculture on the condition of the soil, drinking-water supplies, rivers and lakes. As Iowa hog producers expand their confinement facilities, they are running into


public opposition not just near cities, where suburban sprawl creeps outward into the countryside, but in sparsely populated rural areas. Meanwhile, Iowa state officials have yet to demonstrate they are serious about dealing with this state’s contribution to environmental damage that is attributable to agricultural land runoff via the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico. Iowa state officials, political leaders and agricultural industry leaders have tended to react by circling the wagons, characterizing critics as outsider enemies to be fought at every turn. Last week, for example, Gov. Terry Branstad said, “We need to be careful about these outside groups that have little knowledge of agriculture leveling attacks against an important economic driver of our state’s economy.” A strategy of hunkering down and attacking critics is not in the interests of Iowa agriculture or the consumers of food in this country. It will only ratchet up the rhetoric and waste energy that should be devoted to solutions. Instead, Iowa and other Midwest agricultural states should acknowledge changing consumer attitudes and take the lead on improving food safety, livestock conditions and environmental protection. It is foolish and pointless to rail against changing public sentiment with

Math on proposed reforms doesn’t add up “Today, I laid our more than $1 billion in structural reforms,” Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner boasted to his supporters via a blast e-mail last week. Baloney. Rauner’s press conference to announce a billion dollars in alleged budget savings was an almost total farce. Fully half of what Rauner said he could save – $500 million at the Department of Central Management Services – came with absolutely no details. Rauner did provide some annual totals for emergency and sole-source contracts, but he’d have to get rid of almost of all those, with all those government services they involve, to hit his goal. It’s a total sleight of hand with

VIEWS Rich Miller no actual basis in reality, but it gets him half way to his magic billion dollars, so it was included. Another $250 million would come from implementing “Medicaid verification reform,” but those reforms are ongoing, although not to Rauner’s liking. The private company hired to root out ineligible Medicaid recipients started with the lowest of low hanging fruit. And even then, lots of people were restored to the Medicaid rolls after filling out the proper forms. So projecting a $250 million savings based on the initial work by

that private contractor, before its actions were reversed, is a complete fantasy. In other words, three quarters of Rauner’s billion dollars is either magic money or already in the pipeline. Part of what Rauner did last week was what every candidate does. He highlighted some press clippings about Quinn administration screwups, which he claims totaled $140 million. But almost half that amount – $60 million – was overtime costs for prison workers. Rauner wants to hire more guards, but that would actually add state costs for things like training, more full-time salaries and benefits. Should there be more prison

“right to farm” constitutional amendments, as proposed in Missouri, or legislation that seeks to make it a crime to report mistreatment of livestock. Instead, Iowa and other Midwestern leaders should lead the way toward solutions. Growing evidence suggests the industry can, and should, accommodate public interest rather than oppose change at every turn. The most recent example is Minnesota-based Cargill Inc.’s decision to give pork producers a 2017 deadline for eliminating controversial gestation crates that restrict the movement of sows. This is just the latest in a series of moves by major food companies and restaurant chains to impose changes in how livestock is treated, in response to consumer demands in the marketplace. Battles will continue to be fought over food labeling, whether it be “organic” and “natural” or “contains food grown from genetically modified seed.” Farm state leaders should be part of the discussion on how to give consumers meaningful and accurate information about their food, instead of fighting labeling movements. Farmers have a good story to tell. They are producing more wholesome and safe food today than at any other time in history, and at affordable prices. That requires new science, including seeds that are modified in the laboratory to produce bigger yields and resist pests and disease. Modern farming requires reasonable application of chemicals and fertilizer, and it can be done while preserving topsoil for future generations and protecting the quality of water. Farmers and their supporters will have more credibility in telling this story if they are seen as leading the way toward change rather than being dragged to it by lawmakers, government regulators and consumers.

guards? Sure. But don’t pretend that it’ll save money. Yet another $40 million in “wasteful spending” cited by Rauner was actually an upgrade of the state’s probation system, which has been badly neglected for years. Another $12 million was what Rauner called “Medicaid payments to deceased individuals.” Rauner’s former investment firmed owned a bunch of nursing homes and hospitals, so he ought to know that Medicaid doesn’t make direct payments to patients, alive or dead. And while this was most definitely a Quinn administration screwup, the government has recovered most of the money that was sent to managed care providers, mainly hospitals. So, out of $140 million in “waste” touted by Rauner, at least $112 million isn’t actually waste or has been or will be recovered. Add the $500 million magic money savings from CMS, plus the highly doubtful $250 million savings in Medic-

– The Des Moines (Iowa) Register

aid plus the $112 million in “waste” that isn’t actually waste and he had $862 million in savings that aren’t really there – out of the billion dollars he said he had identified. Oh, but there’s more. I’ll even be charitable and give Rauner all of his savings on questionable capital projects. But these aren’t annual cash savings. The state takes out long-term loans for construction projects, and Rauner pointed to some projects totaling about $11.5 million. Yes, many of those projects are goofy. No argument there. Spending an eye-popping $10 million to rehab a decrepit private theater in Chicago is a justifiable target for critics. But cutting out that project won’t save $10 million a year. It’ll save maybe a tenth of that. And, heck, grant him his idea to move legislators to a 401(k) plan, which is probably unconstitutional, but he claims it will save $60 million – over 30 years. Annualize that out, and it’s a $2 million annual savings. I won’t even point out that Rauner counted some savings twice. OK, I did point

it out, but I won’t put it in the final tally. He wants a 10 percent cut in constitutional offices and General Assembly spending, which he said will save $40 million. But he also wants to merge the offices of the comptroller and treasurer, which he said will save $12 million. The bottom line is that out of a $36 billion or so state budget, Rauner successfully and accurately identified maybe $70 million in overspending a year – or less than 0.2 percent of the budget. Hey, I’m not knocking $70 million. Every little bit helps. But when you advertise a billion dollars in savings and your provable savings add up to only about 7 percent of that, pardon me if I’m not exactly inspired. “We need to stop the false choice of dangerous cuts to government services or higher taxes,” Rauner claimed last week. What we need, Bruce, is a serious conversation.

Blend of D-I talent, supporting cast powered Indians to state title VIEWS Dick Goss

• Tuesday, June 17, 2014

During the season, more than one area baseball coach discussed Lemont in almost reverent tones. They called the Indians one of the state’s best teams, without a doubt. All well and good. But this is high school baseball, where single-elimination tournaments determine the four state champions. There is nothing in life more unpredictable than a single-elimination baseball tournament. Lemont, however, held up its end of the bargain, winning the Class 3A championship last Saturday over Sacred Heart-Griffin in thrilling style. With the Indians trailing 1-0, they had two outs and nobody on base in the bottom of the seventh inning. They managed to fill the bases against Cyclones lefty Ben McElwee and Ryan Folliard became a hero never to be forgotten in Lemont lore. He hit a single to center field on a 2-1 pitch to drive home the tying and winning runs. “These kids never gave up,” Indians coach Brian Storako said. “Sacred Heart-Griffin is a quality team and a quality program. “We hit the ball hard but at guys most of the day. We didn’t get much for it. Then we got the bounce when we needed it.” The focus throughout the season was on Lemont’s brigade of Division I talent. Jake Latz, the winning pitcher in the championship game, and catcher Mike Papierski are headed to LSU, along with Jake Godfrey, who pitched Providence to the 4A championship, beating St. Rita, 4-1. Indians shortstop Mike Wisz will play his college ball at Houston, and first baseman Jake Terrazas is headed to Saint Louis. Wisz

All along, Lemont looked that good

Wisz, in fact, averaged almost 20 points his senior season. Latz and Papierski reportedly have gone to LSU to begin taking summer classes. The Toronto Blue Jays, who drafted the Lemont batterymates in the 11th and 16th rounds, respectively, have until July 18 to sign them. If they don’t and Latz and Papierski play for the Tigers, they will not be draft eligible again until after their junior season. Latz told me after Saturday’s game that it really could go either way on what he and Papierski will do. He said they had not had time to think much about it then because their entire focus had been on winning the

state title. Latz, Papierski and Wisz were named over the weekend to the 3A IHSBCA AllState Team. Lincoln-Way West’s Luke Morgan and Joliet Catholic’s Nick Dalesandro also represent this area on the 3A team. In 4A, the local selections were Providence’s Dylan Rosa, Minooka’s Mitch Vogrin and Neal Tyrell, Plainfield North’s Kyle Strepk and Joliet West’s Cody Grosse. Any team with four Division I-bound seniors, three of whom are all-state, is going to be strong. But what helped lift Lemont to the ultimate level was the supporting cast. With Charlie Wright and Garrett Acton in the 2-3 spots behind Latz, the pitching staff was excellent. Wright,

who will continue his career at Joliet Junior College, would have been the ace on many staffs, and Acton was only a sophomore. As for position players, kids like Folliard, Nick Wisz, Danny Dowiarz, Eric Tucker, Mike Gralla and Jamie Glista were vital to the team’s success, even if you did not hear their names quite as often. In fact, Gralla, Glista and Dowiarz are the three who reached to fill the bases and set up Folliard’s game-winning hit. “Every time Ryan was in a big situation, he seemed to produce,” Mike Wisz said of Folliard. Postseason state rankings will have Lemont in the No. 1 slot. And if they don’t, they should. I had a feeling the Indians

would win it all once they won the Joliet Catholic Regional. JCA and Lincoln-Way West also were among the best handful of teams in 3A, but only one could survive the regional. Lemont needed to beat only one of the other two to move on to the sectional. That was a perk for being the No. 1 seed. Of course, the Indians also deserved the No. 1 seed. A couple of weeks after they claimed the regional title, they are state champions. “This is their championship,” Storako said of his troops. “They deserve it.” Exactly as it should be, although it must be said, Sacred Heart-Griffin was a most worthy runner-up. The 3A championship game was a classic.

Induction day arrives for Class of 2014 been honored with five Midwest Coach of the Year honors, two Man of the Year distinctions and one Citizen of the Year selection. This also marks his sixth induction into a hall of fame.

Door swings open to Joliet Area Sports Hall of Fame SUBMITTED REPORTS The Joliet Area Sports Hall of Fame will induct the Class of 2014 in a private ceremony Tuesday in the Hall of Fame room at Silver Cross Field. Then at 6:30 p.m., before the start of the Joliet Slammers vs. Normal CornBelters game, the new Hall of Famers will be presented in an onfield ceremony open to fans who are in attendance, taking advantage of the Slammers’ 2-dollar Tuesday. The Hall of Fame class includes Ed Brady, Terry Gannon, the late Ken Parker, Matt Senffner and Brent Wadsworth. Details of their accomplishments follow.

ED BRADY A three-year varsity letterwinner in football at Morris, Brady capped his high school career by earning all-state as a linebacker and leading the program to the first of what has become 10 state championship game appearances. One year later, the Redskins captured their first of three state crowns. By that time, Brady earned his first of four letters at Illinois with a Liberty Bowl appearance to follow in 1982. One year later, he was a starting linebacker for the last Illinois team to win a Big Ten title outright and the only Illini squad ever to go 9-0 in league play en route to an appearance in the Rose Bowl. The next spring (1984), Brady was selected by the Los Angeles Rams in the eighth round. He was on the sideline opposite the eventual Bears Super Bowl championship team playing in the NFC title game at Soldier Field. Brady got his shot at a Super Bowl title in 1989 during a six-year career (1986-91) with the Cincinnati Bengals, who dropped a 20-16 decision to the San Francisco 49ers. He closed out his 12-year NFL career serving as a long

snapper with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1992-95.


TERRY GANNON Where there have been championships, Gannon has been in the thick of things whether as a player or broadcaster. His most famous came as a member of the improbaTerry ble 1983 North Gannon Carolina State national championship basketball team, a coach Jim Valvano-led team which ended the regular season 17-10. Gannon established the school’s three-point shooting percentage record (.589) and was the nation’s best marksman from beyond the arc that season and finished his career as the program’s top free throw shooter (.854). To close out his career, the senior captain and two-time Academic All-America selection led the 1984-85 Wolfpack to an ACC title. Gannon and his nearly 25-point average helped Joliet Catholic to its first-ever backto-back regional championships (1979-80 and 1980-81). Gannon’s broadcasting career started in 1987 on the regional level as a college basketball analyst for Raycom Sports before he ventured into college and professional baseball. ABC Sports came calling in 1991 and since then he has covered college football and basketball, the NBA and WNBA, the British and U.S. Open and figure skating. Gannon has also worked the World Cup and Women’s World Cup, Little League World Series, the Tour de France, Indianapolis 500, Belmont Stakes and WTA Tennis. A current member of The Golf Channel team, Gannon has also covered the Olympics for NBC Sports, including the 2014 Winter Games.

KEN PARKER A gift from Granite City, where he was a three-sport standout in football, basketball and baseball at the high school level, Parker was the consummate professional, leader and gentleman during his 28-year run in the athletic arena between stops at Joliet Township High School and Joliet Junior College. An all-state basketball player at Granite City his senior year, Parker went on to play at the University of Illinois, where he was the sixth man on the legendary “Whiz Kids” team (1942-43) that won the Big Ten Championship for the second straight year and went 17-1 overall, but did not compete in the NCAA Tournament despite being ranked No. 1 in the nation because of the war. A lieutenant himself in the Navy during World War II, who was part of the D-Day Invasion of Normandy, France, Parker made brief coaching and teaching stops at Cornell and Forrest before arriving in Joliet in 1949. One year later, he began a 12-year run as the Steelmen head basketball coach capped by the 1961-62 regional championship team that went 22-6. Parker then performed the rarest of feats, serving as the dual athletic director at both the high school and junior college from 1964-68. From 1969 through 1977, he focused solely on the duties at JJC, where he also implemented the physical education major. Cited at the inaugural Joliet

Township Night of Champions in 2005, Parker is a member of the Joliet Junior College and Granite City High School Halls of Fame.

MATT SENFFNER Little did Senffner realize what he was about to create when he started the Providence Catholic football program from scratch in 1966. In the next 40 years, the only head coach the Matt Celtic program Senffner had ever known crafted one of the premier programs in Illinois. No program has ever made as many consecutive state title game appearances (five, 1994-98) as Providence and only two – Joliet Catholic (Senffner’s alma mater) and Mount Carmel – have won more state championships. Senffner’s teams captured nine state crowns in 11 title-game appearances and earned 26 state playoff bids over his 38-year career. The Celtics went 300-114-1 (.724 winning percentage) under his guidance, including a 50game win streak. Senffner’s teams were also ranked nationally seven times. The fifth all-time winningest football coach in the state, Senffner also oversaw the entire athletic program for 27 of his 40 years at the school with 15 other state championships being won under his leadership. He has

Wadsworth’s mark of distinction is everywhere, from the better than 850 courses that the Wadsworth Golf Construction Company has built or redesigned since 1958 to the num e r o u s o r g a - Brent nizations that Wadsworth have benefited from his Wadsworth Golf Charities Foundation established in 1997. A U.S. Air Force serviceman (1952-54), Wadsworth settled in Plainfield to begin his career with his company eventually expanding to four offices nationwide. Courses with a Wadsworth touch can be found in 44 states with many annually ranking among the best in the nation. In 2005 alone, 28 Wadsworth courses were included in America’s 100 Best Residential Golf Courses by Golfweek Magazine, including five in the Top 10. That same year, two of his courses earned Best New Upscale Course and Best New Private Course from Golf Digest. Among the most prestigious courses Wadsworth has worked on are Augusta National Golf Club and three Tournament Players Courses. Locally, he has helped build Wedgewood, Heritage Bluffs and Prairie Bluff and redesign Cog Hill’s Dubsdread course. Joining the likes of Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, Wadsworth was bestowed with the prestigious Donald Ross (1993) and Don Rossi awards (2000) after gaining induction into the Illinois Golf Hall of Fame (1991). He has also earned the University of Illinois Alumni Lifetime Achievement Award and the Joliet Township High School Distinguished Alumni Award.

Hoffman claims late-model feature

Rookie Lynch won’t let doubters get in his way

SUBMITTED REPORT MORRIS – Eddie Hoffman passed Brandon Clubb late in the race and pulled away on a restart with one lap remaining to win the late-model feature at Friday night’s sock-car racing program at Grundy County Speedway. Clubb finished second, with Larry Schuler taking third. Points leader Ricky Baker was fourth, followed by Chris Cooling, Scott Koerner, Mark Sontag Jr., Ron Vandermeir, David Einhaus and James Gregait. Baker set the fast time. Clubb won the first heat ahead of Sontag. Billy Knippenberg prevailed in the second heat, with Jim Weber taking second. Tom Knippenberg, who has been dominant all season, won another Mid-American feature. Joe Vinachi, Kevin Gentile, John Ventrello and Luke Baldwin rounded out the top five. Vince Cooper, Jeremy Clubb,

Kevin Murphy, Chuck Yuris and Jason Hendron closed in the 6-10 spots, respectively. Knippenberg set the fast time and won the first heat over Luke Baldwin. Kenny Benson won the second heat, with Jim Kachel second. Pat Kelly won the street stock feature, followed by Jake Bradley, Pete Odell, Logan Love, Jacob McKown, Rob Scamen, Christy Penrod, Sisson, Eddie Ligue and Alex Clubb. Bob Davis set the fast time. Kelly and Love finished 1-2 in the first heat. Sisson and Bobby Gash were the top two finishers in the second heat. The pure stock winner was Zach Sontag. He was followed by Spencer Leake, Mikey Slabenak, Dan Schmeissing, Will Shepard, Ricky Wilson, Justin Mikel, Chris Mihalski, Austin Blackwell and Danielle Dobczyk. Heather Page and Mikel won heat races.

By JEFF ARNOLD LAKE FOREST – In the two years that took Jordan Lynch from a Mid-American Conference unknown to a Heisman Trophy finalist, the sidelines were never a familiar place. But the sidelines are now Lynch’s classroom, a place for the former Northern Illinois star quarterback to observe in what is his latest opportunity to convince naysayers – and he knows there are plenty – that they’re wrong about his chances. As hell-bent as he was on becoming an NFL quarterback, Lynch faces a serious uphill climb just to make the Bears roster as an unsigned free agent running back. As many defenders as Lynch barreled over in his two years as NIU’s starter when he carried the ball 586 times for 3,735 yards and 42 touchdowns, Lynch understands the competitive traffic he will have to navigate to hold down one of the backfield spots the Bears will fill heading into the regu-

lar season. So as unfamiliar as the sidelines may seem to him, Lynch understands it’s where he must start. “I’m a rookie. I’ve got to learn my way, I’ve got to earn my way on this field,” Lynch told Chicago Football last week. In addition to trying to buck the odds by making an NFL roster after going undrafted, Lynch is trying to do so while trying to learn a position that gives him the best chance to stick with the Bears. Although Lynch averaged 20 carries and 137.1 yards per game last year as a college senior, working full-time at running back is – in his words – a night and day difference. Where playing quarterback was more mental than physical, Lynch finds himself focusing on being the bruising type of runner Bears general manager Phil Emery liked when he decided to take a chance on Lynch, who grew up only 45 minutes from the Bears training facilities. It’s a physical running

style that seems to suit Lynch just fine, putting his emphasis on trying to digest as much of the Bears running game as he possibly can. He spends extra time on the practice field working with Bears running backs coach Skip Peete while also relying on teammates like Matt Forte, who doesn’t fight the same job security issues that Lynch does. Understanding that he likely will have a difficult time making the Bears’ 53-man roster, all Lynch can do is to push himself as hard as he can. “I’m used to the pounding and the beating,” Lynch said. “I’m a blue-collar kid from the city and that’s the only way I know how to play football.” In addition to Forte, fourthround draft pick Ka’Deem Carey, Michael Ford and Shaun Draughn are all ahead of Lynch on the depth chart. Bears coach Marc Trestman said after the Bears rookie mini-camp that he considers Lynch a “real football player” who didn’t look out of place doing what will be asked of him at his new position.

MORRIS – Austin Prock and Travis Young won the twin 36-lap features in the Short Track Auto Racing Series’ 10th annual Carter/ Anderson Classic for National Midgets Saturday night at Grundy County Speedway. A caution flag cut down Prock’s sizable lead on the restart with five laps remaining in the first feature. However, he was able to hold off Brad Greenup, who also fell victim to Jimmy Anderson’s charge from the outside. “I got up to the front pret-

ty quick,” Prock said. “From there on out, I just pretty much cruised and wanted to conserve my stuff.” Joliet’s Anderson finished second, Greenup third, Billy Hulbert fourth and Mario Clouser fifth. In the second National Midgets feature, Young got off to a comfortable early lead. Anderson worked his way into second place with Prock charging up to third. On lap 11, however, Prock and Anderson made contact in turn four, causing Anderson’s car to spin to a stop. Anderson, who has never won the race named for his father but has finished second five times, was visibly upset at the incident. Prock was sent to the back of the field, and for the last 25 laps, Young dominated and breezed to victory. He had

U.S. emerges victorious in opener By RONALD BLUM The Associated Press NATAL, Brazil – After 90 brutal minutes of end-to-end action, the Americans emerged with a thrilling 2-1 win over Ghana. “It was a grind, but it was a wonderful win at the end of the day,” coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. U.S. fans were screaming for revenge Monday after the Black Stars eliminated the Americans from the last two Cups. They got it. At a price. Clint Dempsey scored a shocking goal a half-minute in, but the U.S. couldn’t make it stand up. Andre Ayew tied the score in the 82nd minute after a brilliant back-heel pass from Asamoah Gyan, who had eliminated the U.S. four years ago. And then, just four minutes later, 21-year-old John Brooks rose to head in Graham Zusi’s corner kick from 8 yards – the first substitute to ever score for the United States in 30 World Cup games over 84 years. The defender, an unexpected addition to the American roster, was so overcome he fell to the field and was unable to move even after teammates climbed off the

He had made his national team debut only last August, and Brooks hadn’t scored in four appearances. U.S. players ran onto the field to celebrate at the final whistle, jumping as supporters chanted “U-S-A! U-S-A!” Now they’re in good position in Group G, where Germany opened with a 4-0 rout of Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal. After the game, Vice President Joe Biden visited the victorious Americans in their locker room. “We got the three points that we badly wanted,” Klinsmann said. He had predicted this would

be like a final. Jozy Altidore was hoping it wasn’t his finale. The forward was carried off on a stretcher after his left hamstring gave out in the 21st minute when he tried to control a long ball. He awaits tests that will determine whether he can return for this World Cup. Dempsey went down too on a balmy late-autumn night, but he stayed in the game. The U.S. captain ended the first half with a tissue up his nose, which he said was probably broken, to stop the bleeding after John Boye’s kick to his face during a battle for a header in the 31st minute. “I just had trouble breath-

ing,” Dempsey said afterward, his nose swollen and cut. “I was coughing up blood a little bit. Hopefully I’ll be able to breathe through my nose again before the next game.” Tim Howard made big save after big save as Ghana outshot the U.S., 21-8. Matt Besler came out at the start of the second half after feeling tightness in his right hamstring. It was his replacement, Brooks, who scored the winning goal. Zusi was also a sub, coming on for the hobbling Alejandro Bedoya in the second half. By the time of the final whistle, the U.S. lineup had Brooks in central defense and a virtually invisible 23-year-old Aron Johannsson at forward. The Americans “showed a lot of heart, a lot of character,” Dempsey said. Now the odds favor advancement. But that might depend on which players are able to make it on the field for Sunday’s game against Portugal in the hot and humid Amazon rain forest capital of Manaus. “This win means nothing unless we’re able to build upon it the next two games,” Dempsey said.


Spurs could stick around, even if Duncan doesn’t By BRIAN MAHONEY The Associated Press SAN ANTONIO – Tim Duncan conducted his postgame interview flanked by his two children. Someday soon he may decide that they, and not Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, will be his full-time running mates. Duncan’s eventual retire-

ment – whether it’s next week, next summer, or after the next championship – probably won’t end of what’s been a 15year run at or near the top for the San Antonio Spurs. San Antonio appears to be positioned to keep rolling along. The Spurs looked better than ever in demolishing the Miami Heat in five games

for their fifth championship, finishing it off with a 104-87 victory Sunday that set off a horn-honking celebration that lasted deep into the night. With good players in place and perhaps unmatched leadership at the top that will find more, the Spurs don’t figure to go away, even when their big man in the middle finally

does. “I think I said it many times. There was not one season since I’m in the NBA that I really didn’t truly believe that we could have won it,” Ginobili said. “Every year we were up there. Sometimes we were No. 1 and we lost in the first round. Some other times we were seventh and we had a shot at winning it.

A self-proclaimed dental nerd Joliet dentist practices with family of dentists, researches and blogs about dentistry By JEANNE MILLSAP

“Dentistry is an art. You have the ability to almost instantly change someone’s appearance for the better.”

Shaw Media Correspondent JOLIET – To say Joliet dentist Dr. Daniel Streitz Jr. is a dental nerd is not pushing it. It’s his moniker. “When I come home from work,” Streitz said, “I go on the Internet and read dental blogs for a good hour, hour-and-ahalf, each night. We help each other. Technology is always changing, and it’s nice to have a huge network of dentists online to communicate with.” Streitz not only communicates with a network of other dentists, he writes his own blog, too, for his family’s dental website,, on interesting dental topics for the layperson. “I think it’s important to get information out there to patients that might have conflicting information about certain issues,” Streitz said. His education is not limited to dental school. Streitz’s grandfather, Dr. Thomas Streitz, who just retired, founded Streitz Family Dental in Joliet 58 years ago. The office now has a Plainfield location, too. Dr. Tom’s son, Dr. Daniel Streitz Sr., still serves in both the Joliet and the Plainfield practices. Streitz joined the business two years ago and his brother, Dr. David Streitz, just graduated from dental school and will begin at the practice this summer. “It makes for interesting family gatherings,” Streitz said. In addition, Streitz said his grandfather’s brother, Richard Streitz, is a retired dentist, and Dr. Richard’s son, Mark Streitz, is a dentist on Black Road. “I think our patients are unique, too,” Streitz said. “We have generations of them. They are very loyal.” One recent post centered on the little nondissolving blue specks he and his hygienists

were noticing in patients. A little research revealed these were little plastic (polyethylene) balls that some manufacturers put in toothpaste. “Some theories for the polyethylene’s presence is for decorative purpose or as a cheap filler material,” Streitz said. “As of this time, we do not know of any benefit or detriment due to polyethylene in toothpaste.” However, on June 9, Gov. Pat Quinn signed a measure to ban them in personal care

products. Synthetic plastic microbeads – billed as a way to exfoliate or scrub surfaces – are found in facial cleansers, body washes and even some toothpastes, according to an article by The Associated Press. The new Illinois law seeks to prohibit the manufacture of such products by the end of 2018 and the sale of the products by the end of 2019. Good dental health is more than simply avoiding cavities, he said. One of Streitz’s big

campaigns is making people aware that dental problems – even undiagnosed ones – can their overall health in a major way. Streitz called it the “mouthbody connection,” another reason why brushing twice a day and flossing and to see a dentist twice a year are good ideas. This, Streitz added, can help avoid heart disease, stroke and diabetes. The American Dental Association echoes this statement. Blogging about good oral

health is just one more way the Streitzes help the community. Dr. Tom was involved with the Will County Health Department and traveled on dental missions to South America. Dr. Dan served on dental mission trips in Haiti and Peru. Streitz helped with a dental mission in Jamaica. So what’s new in dentistry? The way crowns are made, Streitz said. Currently and in the past, crowns are formed from physical impressions. In the near future, Streitz said, digital impressions will be made so crowns can be manufactured right in the office. Although some dentists currently use the new technology, Streitz feels the technology needs a bit more improvement before his office adopts it. The field of implant dentistry for missing teeth also is making huge strides, he said. “With some cases,” Streitz said, “you can put an implant in the same day you remove the tooth. With only a brief youthful desire to become a professional tennis player, Streitz said he has wanted to be a dentist since he was in high school, when he occasionally assisted in the office and witnessed how much his grandfather and father enjoyed their work. Streitz now understands why they did. He loves being a dentist, he said. “Dentistry is an art,” Streitz said. “You have the ability to almost instantly change someone’s appearance for the better.”

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

Deductions can come from the auction


Margery Allingham, commenting on her crime solver Albert Campion, wrote, “He did not arrive at this conclusion by the decent process of quiet, logical deduction, nor yet by the blinding flash of glorious intuition, but by the shoddy, untidy process halfway between the two by which one usually gets to know things.” It is, of course, better to draw conclusions from logical deduction. In this deal, South is in four hearts. West leads the spade nine. How should East deduce the correct defense? North made a game-invitational limit raise, showing four or more hearts, 10-12 support points (here, all high-card points, no short-suit points) and eight losers (here, two in each suit). East knows that West has led a singleton or high from a doubleton – but which? East should ask himself, “If my partner has a singleton, how many spades does that give declarer?” Here, the answer is five. And would South have opened one heart with five spades in his hand? It would have been most unlikely, because with 5-5 in the majors, South would have opened one spade, not one heart. So East should deduce that his partner has led from a doubleton and should signal encouragement with his spade seven. South wins, cashes the heart ace, and plays another heart. But West wins with his king, leads his second spade, receives a spade ruff and cashes the diamond ace for down one. Note finally that declarer does best to call for dummy’s spade king at trick one, making it more likely that East will have a reflex reaction and win with his ace.

ADVICE Men posting profiles on dating sites need a few tips Dear Abby: May I sit in your chair and give some advice today? It’s aimed at men who place ads on dating sites and then wonder why they can’t meet “quality” women. I’m an educated, decent-looking, middle-aged widow who has dated quite a lot through such ads and local social groups. Yes, it can be a jungle out there, but the Internet is a wonderful tool for bringing people together. I live in a small town, and the pool of eligible men is smaller here than in metropolitan areas. That said, there are few profiles that attract my attention and that of my divorced/widowed friends. Gentlemen, some pointers: 1. Smile! A dour expression is unpleasant. 2. We may want to see you with your shirt off after we get to know

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips you, but it’s not the most appealing or refined pose for a first look. 3. Be realistic. If you are Joe Average, we Jane Averages would enjoy meeting you. Are you REALLY going to hold out for a model who is a decade or so younger than you? 4. Be kind to the English language. You don’t have to be a genius, but it would be nice to know you can competently communicate in writing. 5. Consider a shave. Some women like men with facial hair; the majority of the ones I know do not. About 75 percent of men over 50 have a mustache, beard or

both. What are you hiding under there? 6. If you’re married and miserable, for goodness sake, go for marriage counseling or get a divorce. But please don’t deceive women who want to meet a nice guy to share life with. In case you think I’m being too harsh, we gals welcome any suggestions from men who scroll through those female profiles looking for love. – Surfing In Petersburg Dear Surfing: I’m printing your letter, and I’m sure the reaction will be interesting. The No. 1 complaint I’ve heard about Internet dating has to do with misrepresentation on both sides of the gender divide. • Write Dear Abby at www.

The sooner a stroke is treated, the better the recovery Dear Doctor K: What are the warning signs of stroke? Why is it important to be able to recognize them? Dear Reader: Nothing makes me sadder than to see someone suffer a stroke that could have been avoided. Not all strokes can be avoided, but many produce warning symptoms that can trigger preventive actions – if they are recognized. Your brain relies on a steady supply of oxygen-rich blood to do everything. When the blood supply to any part of your brain is suddenly interrupted, it can have serious effects. You may lose strength, have trouble coordinating your movements, and have trouble speaking or understanding what people are saying to you. You may not be able to think clearly or remember things. You may have trouble seeing or hearing. A stroke occurs when an injury to a blood vessel deprives a part of the brain of its constant blood supply. As a result, brain cells can die, taking with them the ability to move, speak, feel or think. If the brain’s blood supply is quickly restored, a person may recover from a stroke with little or no disability. That’s why it is vital to recognize the warning signs of stroke in yourself and in

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff others – and to get to an emergency room immediately if they occur. If you experience any of these symptoms, immediately dial 911: • Weakness in an arm, hand or leg. • Numbness on one side of the body. • Sudden dimness or loss of vision, particularly in one eye. • Sudden difficulty speaking. • Inability to understand what someone is saying. • Dizziness or loss of balance. • Sudden, lasting, excruciating headache. The following Act FAST (Face, Arms, Speech, Time) checklist can help you determine whether someone else is having a stroke. If the answer to any of the questions below is yes, call 911: 1. Face: Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop? 2. Arms: Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward? 3. Speech: Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Are the words slurred? Does he or she fail to repeat the sentence correctly?

4. Time: If the answer to any of these questions is yes, time is important. Call 911 or get to the hospital fast. Early stroke treatment increases the chances of preventing significant brain cell death and disability. One of the main stroke treatment drugs is recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). It must be given within three hours of the start of stroke symptoms – and earlier is better. I had a patient who suffered from atrial fibrillation, an abnormal heart rhythm that increases the risk that blood clots will form in the heart, travel to the brain and cause a stroke. I could not convince him to take an anticoagulant drug to keep clots from forming. In his early 60s, he suddenly had a devastating stroke that ended his capacity to work and to do the things he most enjoyed in life. Ever since, I’ve asked myself if I could have somehow done a better job of explaining why taking that medicine was so important. I hope the advice I’ve given here will help my readers take these warning signs seriously.

You received the true facts Dr. Wallace: My boyfriend is addicted to body building and spends at least three hours per evening lifting weights at a local gym. The only day he doesn’t lift is on Sunday, and that’s when we can spend quality time together. David has been “encouraging” me to join him lifting weights at the gym once or twice a week. I’d love to, but I’ve got a nice body shape and I don’t want to look like a muscle-bound female. I talked with the gym manager and he said several women lift weights just to tone their bodies and that women cannot bulk up like men do. He didn’t explain. Did he give me true facts, or a “conjob”? – Mandy, Brooklyn, New York Dear Mandy: Females have 10 percent more fat than men in their total body weight. Because of this, it is physiologically impossible for them to build the same muscle masses as males. Also, females do not produce the sex hormone testosterone (only males do), which promotes muscle growth. You received the true facts. Dr. Wallace: I am a 19-year-old female college sophomore. My grade point average is 4.0 (all A’s) and I’m a varsity basketball player. I have never taken drugs, smoked cigarettes or been involved with alcohol. I love my parents and attend church regularly. I believe in God and believe I am one of God’s precious children. I also happen to be gay. I want to remain anonymous because my parents are not yet aware of this fact,

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace although I’m not embarrassed because I’m not “straight.” Dr. Wallace, I do enjoy your column even though I don’t always agree with your advice. You do help the vast majority of troubled teens and I’m happy my newspaper prints your column. At least you are willing to help. That’s more than I can say for most “advice givers.” It seems all they want to do is get a few laughs – at the expense of the troubled. I’m writing this letter in hopes that you will print it. I just want people to know that all gays are not wild, disease-crazed druggies and criminals. – Nameless, Phoenix, Arizona

Dear Nameless: Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. Maintaining a 4.0 GPA is quite an achievement. Since I was a varsity high school basketball coach, I always enjoy hearing about students who also participate in this wonderful sport at the college level. I totally agree that sexual orientation has nothing to do with being a law-abiding citizen, superb scholar and athlete, and a wonderful person. You are an excellent example! • Dr. Robert Wallace welcomes questions from readers. Although he is unable to reply to all of them individually, he will answer as many as possible in this column.

Try to be a little more flexible so you can stay on the good side of your colleagues.

Failing to keep on top of agreements, contracts or legal matters could land you in debt. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Compromise, not conflict, will be the order of the day. You will lose an important ally if you are too argumentative or demanding. Be willing to meet halfway. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Your current job may be falling short of your expectations.

HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’: A biblical event leaves a sorrowful mystery By HANK STUEVER The Washington Post Whether anyone wants to spend the summer staring directly at sorrow and regret, that’s precisely what HBO and the creators of the new drama “The Leftovers” seem to have in mind. There’s nothing warm or welcoming about it, nor is there meant to be. Where the network’s “True Detective” occasionally broke its dolefulness with the slyest, philosophically artful wink at an audience riveted by its mystery, “The Leftovers” grafts more unhappiness onto unhappiness. Where “Game of Thrones” revels in even its most gruesome developments, it exists safely within the bounds of fantasy, so slay away. “The Leftovers” mainly acts as a means to deliver the worst news about human nature. Yet, despite the downer language of this review, the show delivers on an exceedingly intriguing premise, with some of the most beguilingly morose performances delivered this year. It’s a strange but good wallow. Using executive producer and writer Tom Perrotta’s sad and thoughtful novel as a template for a much broader story, “The Leftovers” (premiering Sunday, June 29) is one of the coldest TV shows I’ve ever seen. It possesses almost no irony, few verbose monologues, a bare minimum of sharp moves, and a style that is conspicuously drab. Watching it produces a numbness that isn’t anything like grief, but more like the tingly approach of a Novocaine local. The tongue can’t help returning to the hurt spot. Justin Theroux, who until “The Leftovers” has been sorely underutilized as a lead actor, stars as Kevin Garvey, the police chief of Mapleton, N.Y., a small town still coming to grips with a global crisis. Three years earlier, on Oct. 14, one in every 50 or so people randomly vanished in a single instance – a total of 2 percent of global population. They didn’t burn up or float away. They’re just inexplicably gone. To demonstrate, “The Leftovers” opens on that ordinary day with the scene of a mother trying to run errands and carry on a phone conversation while handling a screaming infant. While she fiddles with her keys in the front seat, her baby’s wails in the car seat behind her suddenly cease. Gone. She gets out of the car and screams in panic; so does a boy across the parking lot who saw his father

You’ve probably seen or imagined something like this if you’ve ever heard or were taught fundamentalist stories of the Christian rapture, when the souls of the faithful are Hoovered up into heaven while the sinners remain for apocalypse. (“The Leftovers” theme sequence references the kitsch paintings seen in free pamphlets – souls leaving buildings, cars, airplanes – this time rendered as Renaissance ceiling work.) Lots of people are gone, some 6 million Americans. “Poof” becomes a verb – he poofed, she poofed, the rest of us still here did not poof. Celebrities poofed, too, their absence noted during a cable news special on the third anniversary of “the Sudden Departure”: Bonnie Raitt vanished as did Anthony Bourdain, Condoleezza Rice, Jennifer Lopez, Shaquille O’Neal, Pope Benedict XVI and Gary Busey, among others. “I get the pope,” a bartender remarks to Chief Garvey. “But Gary [bleepin’] Busey?” To some degree, I admire how “The Leftovers” is averse to explanations, because that’s the whole point: The people left behind must forever puzzle it out. (Could it happen again? How did it happen? Why did it happen?)

It resists a Hollywood temptation to lavishly depict the Sudden Departure in scenes of chaos and confusion, instead fixating on the lingering psychic wounds of the event. In the four episodes sent to critics, “The Leftovers” also sparingly avoids flashbacks, which is a surprise given that the series is co-created by Damon Lindelof, one of the two men behind ABC’s “Lost,” which used flashback (and flash-forward) as a narrative necessity. Frankly, a few more flashbacks in “The Leftovers’s” first few episodes might better acquaint viewers with what sort of story this show wants to tell, besides a depressing one. Three years on, we figure out that some Americans viewed the departure as an act of God, flocking to the comforts of belief, while others abandoned faith entirely. Bad people disappeared as well as good people. One woman in Mapleton (Carrie Coon as Nora Durst) has become the town’s emblem for the arbitrary nature of the event: She lost her husband and both of her children. As such, she’s a featured speaker at the town’s Oct. 14 anniversary vigil, where the mayor (Amanda Warren) unveils a sculpture of a woman letting go of a floating baby. Using Mapleton as a microcosm of society, “The Leftovers” is especially preoccupied with how everyday life changed. This is a world permanently spooked, jangled; the emotional damage cannot be mended. Characters have made drastic life changes, including joining cults – an act of intentional disappearance in response to the Sudden Departure. “The Leftovers” is intricately imagined, but it also has an off-putting reliance on ambiguity and obfuscation. It almost goes without saying that it’s still difficult to trust Lindelof four years after the miserable wrap-up of “Lost,” a deserted-island saga he co-created that was so burdened with unanswered questions and fuzzy symbology that it became one of modern television’s favorite chew-toys. In promoting “The Leftovers,” Lindelof has described the heated reactions to “Lost’s” finale as a chastening experience, and one that he’s not eager to repeat. With all that in mind, I’m not turned off by “The Leftovers’s” lack of easy answers.

• “The Leftovers” will run 75 minutes and premieres at 10 p.m. Sunday, June 29, on HBO.
