DWIGHT – The off-duty Dwight police officer involved in a DUI accident in December must fulfill a lengthy list of conditions before his official reinstatement. The Dwight Village Board approved, 4-0, the requirements for Dwight police officer Watson McKee to return to his post by Sept. 19, 2014, pending that he accept the conditions and the state chooses to reinstate his license. The village agreed McKee must pass an inspection by the village doctor; pass the state of Illinois physical agility test; face immediate termination if he violates village code in the future; design at least 10 drunken driving awareness programs for grade school and high school students; and participate in random drug and alcohol testing for the next two years. “I believe Watson is an outstanding officer and asset
to Dwight,” Village President Jared Anderson said Monday. “I have met with officer McKee numerous times and discussed his situation. He has been very apologetic and regretful for his actions.” In December while McKee was off-duty, the vehicle he was driving collided with a pole about two miles west of Cabery. He was hospitalized and charged with driving under the influence and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident. At the time, he had been with Dwight police for four years and was placed on leave. Only McKee’s vehicle was involved, and he had no passengers. Last month in Livingston County court, he pleaded guilty to driving under the influence and was sentenced to two years court supervision and ordered to do 240 hours of community service. He also was fined, cannot use or possess alcohol or enter establishments where alcohol is the primary business, has to attend counseling,
“I have met with officer McKee numerous times and discussed his situation. He has been very apologetic and regretful for his actions.” Jared Anderson Dwight village president attend a Victim Impact Panel and cannot operate a vehicle not equipped with a Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device other than for work, according to judici.com. Earlier this month, the board voted, 4-3, to reinstate McKee with Anderson issuing a tie-breaking vote in favor of Watson’s reinstatement.

Plainfield trustees pleased with townhome proposal’s modifications By VIKAAS SHANKER firstname.lastname@example.org PLAINFIELD – Trustees were happy Monday that a developer modified its townhome residential plan that was shot down by the Village Board last month. However, they still had some concerns they want addressed before the plan goes up for a vote. “I think it’s a positive plan for Plainfield,” Trustee Jim Racich said. “It’s beautiful land to build on.” Ryan Homes is proposing a 149-unit townhome development, Townhomes at Prairie Creek, southwest of the Route 59 and 135th Street Meijer, west of the DuPage River. The development is within a 63-acre site in the narrow strip of land between the river and water retention basins. The site is surrounded by a floodplain, which was the main issue with trustees when it was brought to the village
board on May 19. “We had extensive feedback from the board and it was essentially a nonstarter,” Village Planner Michael Garrigan said. At that meeting, trustees said the development was too close to the 100-year and 500year floodplains, which are industry-wide standards of measuring the impact flooding could have to developments like Prairie Creek. They also were concerned about the density of the original plan with 212-units, re-zoning the area from I-1 light industrial to R-4 rowhomes, and the use of private streets. Ryan Homes Vice President Scott Pjesky presented to the board updated plans that keep the development out of both floodplains. According to the presentation, the lowest part of the townhome development would be 611.8 feet, higher than the 100-year floodplain elevation of 607.4 feet and 500-year flood-
plain elevation of 608.8 feet. The developer also reduced the number of units in the development from 212 to 149, dramatically changing the streetscape from a linear to boulevard style with culs-desac. The density changed from a gross 3.31 units an acre and net 7.31 units an acre to 2.37 and 5.13 unit an acre Streets would be a 60-feet wide and become public rightsof-way with full sidewalks. “I’m pleased to see that you’ve made the roads conform to village standards” among other changes, Trustee Bill Lamb said. However, trustees still want the developer to work on several areas of the project. They asked staff and the developer to provide a study on water retention of the soil in the area. They also asked for more work on design, and possibly conforming with single-family home design standards of the village.

The board began Monday’s meeting with a moment of silence for the residents and applauded the efforts of local law enforcement agencies. “We just want to continue sending our thoughts and prayers to the Denkers,” Anderson said Monday. “The police are continuing to follow up leads. The Illinois State Police is still here with us, and we’ll just keep moving forward and hopefully get this solved in a timely manner.”

Artist returns to create unique work in I&M Canal By BRIAN STANLEY firstname.lastname@example.org LOCKPORT – Sea serpent? ... Little bridges? ... Obstacle course for remote control boats? What are those arches in the I&M Canal near Ninth Street? “They’re Wiccan-looking,” resident Brad DeYoung said earlier this month as John Siblik was setting up the environmental sculpture. Siblik, a Lemont native who graduated from Joliet Catholic High School and teaches art at Upper Iowa University, calls it “River Weaving.” He worked with the nearby Illinois State Museum-Lockport to install the piece. Siblik banded branches together and spent four days setting 101 arches for a halfmile along the canal near the museum. Half the branches are new while others come from previous installations of the sculpture. “After the first day we had snails on the rocks and blue herons interacting with the branches,” Museum Director John Lustig said. Rock from the Bromberek quarry was used to keep the frames upright in the water. Siblik chose stones similar to those used to build the canal in 1848. “Making the rings takes the longest. Bending a 10-foot piece of willow into an 8-inch circle means one out of three just won’t work,” Siblik said. “But I tell students if one out of every three pieces works as they want it to, they’d feel incredibly fortunate.” Siblik first sketched the sculpture in 1986 while he was a student at Northern Illinois University. “It was conceived for the Kishwaukee River. You need an intimately scaled body of water to do this on. I don’t think it would work on the

Siblik confessed having some fears for 20 years about translating his drawings to an actual sculpture, but finally installed the piece in Elgin, Iowa, in 2006. He’s since done two other installations in Iowa with mixed results. “The floods of 2008 washed the whole piece away. If you’re going to collaborate with nature, the water always wins,” Siblik said. Siblik won’t be surprised if some of the Lockport pieces wash away as well, but he’ll remove whatever is left starting in late July. He’s scheduled to speak about “River Weaving” on July 27 at the museum.

“It’s an ephemeral piece. It’s not like a painting where there’s one point of view that will be all you see. This will change in the light and the
weather,” Siblik said. Siblik joked about trying to be a landscape painter. But instead of a flat image, he’s “drawing with water” to show
“line.” While the artwork is temporary, the process of installing the pieces has made at least one lasting improvement near the Ninth Street Bridge. “I pulled out some mufflers that had been dumped into the canal,” Siblik said. “Those won’t go back in the water.”

A woman heads toward the entrance of Parkview Christian Church in Orland Park on Monday for the wake of U.S. Army Pfc. Aaron Toppen.
Hundreds attend Toppen visitation By LAUREN LEONE–CROSS email@example.com ORLAND PARK – Hundreds of miniature American flags lined the grounds just outside Parkview Christian Church in Orland Park on Monday as mourners paid their respects to U.S. Army Pfc. Aaron Toppen. The 19-year-old Mokena native was among the five American soldiers killed June 9 in a friendly-fire airstrike incident in Afghanistan. Toppen’s body was returned home to Mokena on Saturday. People were lined up inside the church Monday afternoon to pay respects to the fallen soldier. Visitation was from 1 to 9 p.m. to allow enough time for those who wanted to attend, said Tim Harlow, senior pastor of the church. Toppen and his family were longtime members of

the church, Harlow said. He said he expects people to turn out in the thousands for Tuesday’s funeral service, noting an estimated 30,000 people on Saturday lined the route from Midway Airport to Mokena as Toppen’s body was escorted back to his hometown. “He was a well-loved kid,” Harlow said. “This is going to be a big deal.” Toppen had always wanted to be a soldier, he said. “If ever there was a young
man who knew what he wanted to do with his life … it was Aaron. This was it. … He gave his life doing what he knew he was called to do,” Harlow said. “It doesn’t make it all well but it certainly helps us understand. His family knows this is what he wanted to do. This was a sacrifice he was willing to make.” Toppen had such passion for serving his country, Harlow said, he had a tattoo inked on his body that read: “For Those I Love, I Sacrifice,” accompanied with his grandfather’s military dog tags. Toppen’s uncle, Jack Winters, described his nephew as a “sweet kid” with a “definite enthusiasm for life.” “He had something I consider rare in these days in youth culture, and that’s class. He was humble. He was polite,” he said. “He was loyal and

MORRIS – Recovery efforts were suspended again Monday afternoon, but are set to continue each morning, in the search for a 20-yearold female who went missing Sunday after a boating accident on the Illinois River at the Dresden Dam. “We’ve called off the search. We’ve done all we can do upstream,” Deputy Chief Bob Wills with Morris Fire Protection & Ambulance District said Monday. “We will begin another search tomorrow, and will go out every morning until she’s found.” Authorities were called about 3:30 p.m. Sunday after a Bayliner pleasure craft became lodged in a Dresden Dam gate, which is located a couple miles east of Morris. The Coal City Fire Protection District was called to the Dresden Dam, and rescued one person from the boat. Two others were rescued from the water on the other side of the dam by a pleasure craft. All were taken to Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers by ambulance Sunday, according to Lt. Nick Doerfler, public information officer with the Coal City fire department. A fourth person, the 20-year-old female, also went through the dam gate, but
rescuers have been unable to locate her. Her identity had not been released as of Monday. The search had to be halted Sunday evening because of weather and flooding. It began again Monday morning with the command center set up at Stratton Park in Morris. The search was halted again by noon Monday with plans to continue again Tuesday morning. Illinois Department of Natural Resources conservation police are investigating the cause of the accident and assisting Division 15 water rescue with the search efforts. “Debris in the water is complicating search efforts,” IDNR spokesman Chris Young wrote in an email Monday. “At Dresden, searchers were using sonar this morning, but debris made it difficult to get a clear picture. Due to the conditions, divers are unable to get into the water to search. Daily surface patrols are continuing.” The search resumed about 9:30 a.m. Monday, but conditions made the effort difficult. “The conditions of the river are bad,” said Deputy Chief Jon Stratton of Plainfield Fire Protection District, who was at the Grundy County

More than 70 percent of fatal lightning strikes occur during June, July and August, Illinois Emergency Management Agency Director Jonathon Monken said Monday in a news release announcing Lightning Safety Awareness Week. “Don’t take a chance with lightning. If you hear thunder that’s your cue to take shelter immediately. When thunder roars, go indoors,” Monken said in the statement. A house in Shorewood was struck by lightning during Wednesday night’s storm. The strike set insulation smoldering and fried the wireless Internet box of the house on Woodbrook Court, but no one was injured. The National Weather Service reports about 50 people are killed and 1,000 are injured by lightning in the United States every year. A majority of victims were either in an open area or on or
Know more Outdoor lightning safety tips • No place outside is safe when thunderstorms are in the area. • If you hear thunder, lightning is close enough to strike you. • When you hear thunder, immediately move to a safe shelter. • Stay in the safe shelter at least 30 minutes after you hear the last clap of thunder. If there is no safe shelter anywhere nearby: • Seek lower elevation areas. • Never use a tree for shelter. • Immediately get out and away. from pools, lakes, and other bodies of water. • Stay away from all metallic objects (fences, power lines, poles, etc.) • Do not raise umbrellas or golf clubs above you.
in a body of water. Monken said taking shelter only if you can’t count to 30 between the lightning and thunder is an outdated safety rule. If you do see someone struck by lightning, CPR should be administered immediately. Victims do not carry an electrical charge, but the surge of electricity causes cardiac arrest in most fatalities, according to the IEMA.
Bond kept at $1.5M in sex abuse cases; Bolingbrook man will remain in jail By BRIAN STANLEY email@example.com JOLIET – A Bolingbrook man will remain in jail while awaiting trial for three separate sexual abuse cases. Judge Sarah Jones on Monday denied a request to reduce the $1.5 million bond that Luis O. Diaz, 53, would have to post to be released. Defense attorney Steven Haney said Diaz and his wife have lived in Bolingbrook for more than 20 years and he has no criminal history.
Manhattan Park District celebrates 50 years The Manhattan Park District has reached a milestone – its iftieth anniversary. Executive Director Julie Popp called the origination of the park district itself an incredible story. It was started by a district board and community that raised money to create a park district, simply because they wanted one. Even when Popp joined the park district in 2001, it did not operate with tax payer dollars and had just a $45,000 budget. However, the community did pass a 203% tax increase for the park district, and the 2014 budget is roughly $889,000. The Manhattan Park District was oicially established in August 1964 and has been trying to celebrate its anniversary since the beginning of the year. “It’s a symbol of success,” Popp said. “It’s a way to look back at your accomplishments and how far you’ve come.” The park district was recently awarded a $216,500 OSLAD grant for Central Park development, helping the community celebrate the anniversary with a “facelift” for the park. Among the projects for the park include renovating the volleyball court and relocation of the horse show pits, development of a new accessible parking lot and trail connection around the expanded pond. The pond/boardwalk will also ofer ishing opportunities and will be ADA accessible. A history/outdoor classroom will also be added, providing an opportunity for outdoor programming activities. The biggest way the Manhattan Park District is celebrating its anniversary is with its 50th Anniversary Labor Day Event. It will include a parade, caboose tour, bean bag tournament, Bingo, water ball and other games, as well as a youth rugby clinic, inlatables, petting zoo, face painting and more. The day will conclude with ireworks at dusk. “(Park Districts) are a magnet to the community,” Popp said. “They bring the community together… I think the goal of a park district is to serve every age of the community.” For more information on the Manhattan Park District, visit www.manhattanparkdistrict.com.

On March 1, police were called to the Bolingbrook Recreation and Aquatic Complex after witnesses allegedly saw Diaz making “inappropriate physical contact” with an 8-year-old girl and 5-year-old girl in the swimming pool, according to police reports. While detectives were investigating the incident they learned Diaz groped and rubbed against another 8-year-old girl on two occasions, according to Assistant State’s Attorney Peter Wilkes.
“We think the [existing] bond is appropriate. [Diaz] presents a threat to the general public ... through his employment,” Wilkes said. He told the judge that Diaz has a heating and air conditioning business that does service calls at the alleged victim’s house. Wilkes said prosecutors are awaiting lab results before scheduling a trial. Diaz appeared saddened and sighed several times while talking with Haney after Jones denied the bond reduction.

Man convicted for child’s murder will get new trial By BRIAN STANLEY firstname.lastname@example.org JOLIET – A man accused of beating an infant to death seven years ago is expected to face a second trial this fall. Judge Sarah Jones on Monday denied prosecutors’ request to uphold the verdict a jury reached last year when Santos Loza, 33, was found guilty of murdering 8-monthold Kevion Bender. The verdict was reached at a trial in which Jones was the judge. But Jones said she’d reviewed case law and argu- Santos Loza ments submitted last month by the Will County State’s Attorney’s office but maintained Loza’s lawyers were improperly restricted during the trial from asking the victim’s mother about the full scope of her relationship with Loza. Sandra Sitko had been dating Loza for three months when she dropped off her son at Loza’s house in Joliet so she could go to work Oct. 26, 2008. She returned late that night with her other son and looked in from the doorway at Kevion, who appeared to be sleeping. Kevion was unresponsive when they awoke the next morning.
Medical experts testified the injuries – including a fractured skull – were inflicted during the time Loza was alone with the infant. He was immediately suspected by police, but was not arrested until August 2010. Sitko continued a sexual relationship with Loza after her son’s death. Defense lawyers were only allowed to ask during the trial about the couple’s relationship until February 2009 when they stopped seeing each other regularly. Loza allegedly told his attorneys the sexual contact continued intermittently until July 2010. Loza was found guilty of murder during a weeklong trial in September 2013 and faced up to 100 years in prison. After the trial, his attorneys argued the limits Jones placed on their cross-examination of Sitko violated Loza’s Sixth Amendment rights to confront the witnesses against him. Loza, who remains in the county jail on $3 million bond, is next scheduled to appear in court Aug. 22 when lawyers will select a date for a second trial. Attorney Alex Beck told Jones the defense will have to review transcripts and arrange for their own medical experts to testify before Loza is tried again. Defense attorneys and prosecutors agreed to target early October for the trial.

Urges hospitality at ribbon-cutting ceremony By FELIX SARVER email@example.com

The Culver’s in Lockport has not only been filling a desire for ButterBurgers but also jobs. Lockport Fourth Ward Alderman Robert Perretta said the Lockport store has created 50 jobs alone. “I find that very impressive,” he said.

Race contestant gets his free Nissan By BRIAN STANLEY email@example.com
Brian Stanley – firstname.lastname@example.org
Steve Doherty (seated), a Plainfield resident, listens as Thomas Nissan Product Specialist Kevin Bombeck explains the features of Doherty’s new Juke Nismo. Doherty received a free car for a year after winning the Spike TV Nissan GT Academy and has been hired as a full-time Nissan race driver.
JOLIET – Steve Doherty’s new car won’t be able to reach the speeds he usually gets from a Nissan. But the Juke Nismo he received Monday from Thomas Nissan also won’t reach the temperatures the Plainfield resident has to deal with as a professional race car driver. “There’s air conditioning in this one,” Doherty chuckled. “The Altima’s interior probably gets up to 120 degrees during a race when I’ve got three layers of clothing on.”
Doherty, 30, said the heat was the biggest adjustment from controlling a race car while playing a Grand Turismo video game to doing the real thing on tracks in England and Dubai. He’s lost 45 pounds in the two years since winning the Nissan GT Academy. More than 400,000 online players submitted their fastest times in the competition, which is broadcast on Spike TV. Doherty missed being among the top 32 contestants to appear on the show by six one-hundredths of a second the first year. In 2012, he made
the cut and won enough headto-head competitions against other video game players to be trained to race real vehicles. “There are more consequences racing in real life. Repairs are much more expensive,” Doherty said. Thomas General Sales Manager Sal Luca was surprised when Nissan called to discuss giving a free lease to “a guy who plays video games.” Doherty chose a pearl white vehicle as his prize. “But if [Nissan] picked him up as one of their drivers, he’s got to be pretty good,” Luca said.

LOCKPORT – The co-founder of Culver’s recalled his mother’s ability to make anyone who walked into the family restaurant feel like they were at home. It was that kind of hospitality, along with signature meals, that has made the Wisconsin-based restaurant chain a success for roughly 30 years, Craig Culver told staff at the newly opened restaurant in Lockport on Monday. “You have the power to literally change someone’s day when they walk through the doors for the better,” he said. Culver, along with many city and community leaders, came out for a ribbon-cutting
ceremony at the Lockport restaurant, which actually opened on June 16. The Lockport location joins more than 500 other locations across 21 states. Lockport is also the 70th suburb in the Chicago area to have a Culver’s restaurant. More locations are planned for Evanston and Wrigleyville. After encouraging the staff to serve with “smiles, pleases and thank yous,” Culver headed outside with them to officially cut the ribbon for the new location. Rain came down soon but it did not dampen the enthusiasm. Lockport Mayor Steven Streit said residents were excited about the Wisconsin-based business opening a location in the city.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Grand Ole Opry member Jimmy C. Newman, known for mixing Cajun and country music, has died. Opry publicist Jessie Schmidt said Newman died in Nashville on Saturday after a brief illness. He was 86. The Tennessean reports Newman’s first Top 10 country hit, “Cry, Cry, Darling,” came 60 years ago, in the summer of 1954. That same year he joined Shreveport-based radio show “The Louisiana Hayride,” where he performed alongside Johnny Horton, Elvis Presley and others. He joined the Opry in 1956, after notching five straight Top 10 records, including “Seasons Of My Heart.” In
1957, Newman earned his highest-charting record with “A Fallen Star,” which reached No. 2 on the Billboard country chart and No. 23 on the pop chart. Newman also offered a boost to a teenage Dolly Parton by allowing her to take part of his “Friday Night Opry” stage time in 1959 so that she could make her debut on the show. Originally from Louisiana, Newman added the “C’’ to his stage name in the early 1960s, saying that it stood for “Cajun.” The French Acadian-sounding “Alligator Man” hit the Top 40 in 1962, and Newman recognized that a Cajun-country blend would set him apart and honor his roots.

DUBLIN – Gerry Conlon, who was imprisoned unjustly for an Irish Republican Army bombing and inspired an Oscar-nominated film, has died at age 60 following a long battle with cancer. His family said in a statement that he died Saturday at his Belfast home. They paid tribute to a man they said had “brought life, love, intelligence, wit and strength to our family through its darkest hours.” Conlon became a central figure in one of Britain’s greatest miscarriages of justice after he and three others were convicted and sentenced to life for the 1974 bombing of a pub in Guildford, near London, that killed five people. Conlon protested his inno-
cence and insisted that police had tortured him into making a false confession. His position was vindicated in 1989 when the so-called Guildford Four were freed after a top judge ruled that police had fabricated the hand-written interrogation notes used to convict all four. The exonerations came too late for Conlon’s father, Guiseppe, who had been wrongly convicted along with six other relatives for allegedly supplying the bombs used by the Guildford Four. The elder Conlon died behind bars in 1980 and received his own posthumous pardon in 1991. The family statement said Conlon’s long campaign for justice “forced the world’s closed eyes to be opened to injustice. It forced unimaginable wickedness to be acknowledged. We believe it changed the course of histo-

Vote for subpoena of Illinois anti-violence chief
CHICAGO – Illinois legislators have voted to subpoena a former state official to answer questions about a troubled anti-violence program started by Gov. Pat Quinn. A subcommittee of the Legislative Audit Commission voted Monday. The matter requires a signature from a co-chairman, state Rep. Frank Mautino, who wasn’t at the meeting. The vote means committee members will compel Barbara Shaw to answer questions about the $55 million Neighborhood Recovery Initiative. Shaw is the former director of an agency that was responsible for the program. Quinn announced the initiative shortly before the 2010 election. He told reporters earlier Monday that committee members should do what they feel is right.
Summer means construction at U of Illinois
CHAMPAIGN – Construction projects are in high gear at the University of Illinois campus in Champaign-Urbana now that the school year is over and fewer people are on campus. At least five major projects are going on now or will start soon, The News Gazette reported. The $165 million, multi-phase renovation of the State Farm Center is one of the projects. Work this summer will largely lay the groundwork for bigger changes to come. University senior associate athletic director Tom Michael said there have been a few, minor “bumps” but overall the project is on schedule. The $95 million renovation of the Electrical and Computer Engineering facility is nearing

completion. The 235,000-squarefoot building will have more than 1,000 solar panels on the roof. New dorms are being built at a nearly $77 million price tag. They’ll have nearly 500 beds, include semi-suites and should open in fall 2016. Construction is scheduled to finish in spring of next year on a $14 million center for wounded veterans. And after several delays a more than $73 million renovation of the Natural History Building, which dates to 1892, is to start next month. The building has been partially closed since 2010 because of concerns over structural integrity.
Watchdog group to review Wisconsin Energy deal
CHICAGO – An Illinois watch-
dog group says it will carefully review Wisconsin Energy Corp.’s proposed purchase of Integrys Energy Group Inc., the parent company of Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas. The deal was announced Monday and is subject to approval by regulators and company shareholders. Officials at the watchdog Citizens Utility Board in Illinois say they want to make sure it’s a good arrangement for utility customers. They say they’ll make suggestions if they find shortcomings. CUB Executive Director David Kolata said in a statement he wants to make sure the purchase doesn’t lead to more frequent rate hikes. The deal would create a combined company called WEC Ener-
gy Group Inc., which would serve more than 4.3 million total gas and electric customers across Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota.

Chicago mayor wants to increase graffiti fines
CHICAGO – Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s office said he will submit a plan to the city council this week to increase fines and penalties for graffiti. The mayor’s office said Emanuel will make the proposal on Wednesday. They say fines haven’t been changed for nearly a decade. The proposal would increase fines from $750 to between $1,500 and $2,500. Fines would be higher for repeat offenders. The city has a graffiti removal

NATION & WORLD BRIEFS Report: Politics had no role in Sandusky probe HARRISBURG, Pa. – A report released Monday detailing the handling of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case faults police and prosecutors for long delays in bringing charges but found no evidence that politics affected the investigation into the former Penn State assistant football coach. The report, commissioned by Attorney General Kathleen Kane and written by former federal prosecutor Geoff Moulton, blamed a three-year lapse in filing charges on communication problems, an expungement of a 1998 complaint about Sandusky and a failure to take certain investigative steps early on. “The facts show an inexcusable lack of urgency in charging and stopping a serial sexual predator,” said Kane, a Democrat who had vowed to conduct a review of the investigation while running for office. “The report documents that more investigative work took place in just one month in 2011 than in all of either 2009 or 2010.”
Justices rap EPA, uphold global warming rules WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court largely left intact Monday the Obama administration’s only existing program to limit power plant and factory emissions of the gases blamed for global warming. But a divided court also rebuked environmental regulators for taking too much authority into their own hands without congressional approval.
The justices said in a 5-4 vote along ideological lines that the Environmental Protection Agency cannot apply a permitting provision of the Clean Air Act to new and expanded power plants, refineries and factories solely because they emit greenhouse gases. The decision underscores the limits of using the Clean Air Act to deal with greenhouse gases and the administration’s inability to get climate change legislation through Congress. “The Supreme Court put EPA on a leash but not in a noose,” said Michael Gerrard, director of Columbia University’s Center for Climate Change Law.
Automakers to recall air bags in humid parts of U.S. DETROIT – Faulty air bags – which have already led to the recall of millions of cars worldwide – are blamed for a new round of recalls in the U.S. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the government’s auto safety agency, said Monday that BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Nissan and Toyota will recall cars sold in places where hot, humid weather can potentially affect the air bags. The older-model cars have air bag inflators that can rupture. If that happens, the air bags might not work properly in a crash, and shards from the broken system could fly out and cause injury. The automakers all have air bag systems made by Takata Corp., a Tokyo-based supplier of auto parts.

Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen testifies Monday under subpoena before the House Oversight Committee, as lawmakers continue their probe of whether tea party groups were improperly targeted for increased scrutiny by the IRS, on Capitol Hill in Washington.
IRS commissioner says no obstruction of Congress in probe By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The head of the IRS brushed aside accusations Monday that the agency has obstructed investigations into the targeting of tea party and other political groups, even as Republican lawmakers questioned his credibility. Commissioner John Koskinen was appearing at a rare evening hearing on Capitol Hill to answer questions about lost emails by a key figure in the probe. “I know tonight will be difficult, and it deserves to be difficult for both sides,” said Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight Committee. “We have a problem with you, and you have a problem with maintaining your credibility.” Issa accused Koskinen of misleading the Oversight Committee in the spring, when he promised to turn over Lois Lerner’s emails. Since then, the IRS has dis-
closed that Lerner’s computer crashed in 2011, losing an unknown number of those emails. Koskinen said he first learned there was a problem with Lerner’s computer in February, but didn’t learn that emails were lost until April. The IRS notified Congress June 13. Lerner is the former head of the division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. The Oversight Committee is investigating the handling of applications from tea party and other political groups. “I subpoenaed you here tonight because, frankly, I’m sick and tired of your game-playing in response to congressional oversight,” Issa told Koskinen. “You, commissioner, are the president’s hand-picked man to restore trust and accountability at the IRS. You testified under oath in March that you would produce all of Lois Lerner’s emails subpoenaed by this committee.” “Mr. Commissioner, at a
minimum you didn’t tell the whole truth that you knew on that day,” Issa added. Koskinen said, “All the emails we have will be provided. I did not say I would provide you emails that disappeared. If you have a magical way for me to do that I’d be happy to know about it.” He added, “I never said I would provide you emails we didn’t have.” Koskinen said congressional investigators were informed months ago that Lerner had computer problems back in 2011. Koskinen said emails provided to the committee last fall showed that Lerner’s computer had crashed. The emails indicate that Lerner had lost some data, although they don’t explicitly say that Lerner’s emails were lost. They were provided to congressional investigators as part of the tea party investigation. “So it should be clear that no one has been keeping this information from Congress,” Koskinen said.

Massachusetts mayor says to stop sending my city refugees By PAIGE SUTHERLAND The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – A Massachusetts mayor is calling for an end to refugee resettlement in his city, saying Somali families are putting pressure on already strained services in Springfield, a onetime industrial center where nearly a third of the population lives below the poverty line. Mayor Domenic Sarno is the latest mayor to decry refugee resettlement, joining counterparts in New Hampshire in Maine in largely rare tensions with the State Department, which helps resettle refugees in communities across America. The mayor is drawing criticism from those who say this country has a moral obligation to help the outcast and refugees who say they’re being scapegoated for problems the city faced long before their arrival. “Why not talk about the problems in the city, why not talk about the houses that are unstable and in bad conditions, why only talk about the Somalis and Somali Bantus?” Mohammed Abdi, 72, said through an interpreter. Sarno, leader of the state’s third-largest city, first demanded last summer that the U.S. government stop sending refugees. But after recent inspections found Somali families living in overcrowded, pest-infested apartments without electricity and sometimes heat, he stepped up complaints, saying resettlement agencies are bringing in “warm-weath-

Enough is enough,” Sarno said in an interview. “You can’t keep concentrating poverty on top of poverty.” Hard examples and evidence for the mayor’s stance are scant. The problems in the Somali housing have largely been attributed to neglectful landlords. The government does not track the number of refugees who rely on social services. The refugee population in Springfield of about 1,500 – around 380 of them Somali – represents about 1 percent of the city’s total of 153,000. And a 2014 report by the U.S. gov-
ernment found that Massachusetts ranked third in the nation for refugee employment, with 73 percent of refugees enrolled in state programs finding work. Madino Idoor, a 35-year-old Somali with seven children, spent 12 years in a refugee camp before coming to the U.S. in 2004. She works two jobs – one at Goodwill at Springfield and another as a dishwasher at the Barnes Air National Guard Base in nearby Westfield. “I can work hard and provide for my family,” Idoor said. “I do not need for the mayor to worry about me.” She and others wonder why the mayor is targeting an already vulnerable population, an idea reiterated Friday in a Boston Globe editorial.

NATION BRIEFS was released after a yearlong U.S. memo justifying drone killings is released legal battle by The New York NEW YORK – The secret U.S. government memo outlining the justification for the use of drones to kill American terror suspects abroad was released by court order Monday, yielding the most detailed, inside look yet at the legal underpinnings of the Obama administration’s program of “targeted killings.” The 41-page memo – whose contents previously had been summarized and released piecemeal – was heavily redacted for national security reasons, with several entire pages and other passages whited out. But it argues among other things that a targeted killing of a U.S. citizen is permissible under a 2001 law passed by Congress soon after 9/11. That law empowered the president to use force against organizations that planned and committed the attacks. “The release of the memo will allow the public to better assess the lawfulness of the government’s targeted killing policy and the implications of that policy,” said Jameel Jaffer, an American Civil Liberties Union attorney who argued for release of the memo. “Despite the release of this memo, the public still knows scandalously little about who the government is killing and why.” He said the memo contains the first formal acknowledgment by the government that the CIA is involved in the program. The July 2010 memo was written by a Justice Department official who is now a federal appeals court judge. It

Amtrak train hits vehicle on tracks, killing 3 BOSTON – An Amtrak train hit a vehicle that was apparently driving on train tracks in Massachusetts, killing three people in the vehicle and derailing the train, authorities said Monday. The crash also disrupted and delayed train service along the busy Northeast corridor. The train was derailed by the impact of the crash just before midnight in a remote area about 25 miles southwest of Boston, authorities said at a news conference near the crash site in Mansfield. None of the 180 passengers or crew aboard the train, which was heading to Boston from Washington, was injured. Amtrak had to temporarily cancel some service to and from Boston, but it was restored Monday morning, a spokesman said, adding that residual delays were expected in the Boston-New York corridor because trains would be operating on a single track. Commuter trains in Massachusetts also reported delays. The vehicle, possibly an SUV or a truck, was headed north toward Boston, MBTA Transit Police Deputy Chief Kenneth Sprague said. There were multiple places in the area where the vehicle could have driven onto the tracks, Mansfield Police Chief Ronald Sellon said, and it was not immediately clear which access point the vehicle had used or how long it had been on the tracks. – Wire reports

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry (left) stands Monday with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, at the Prime Minister’s office in Baghdad. Kerry flew to Baghdad on Monday to meet with Iraq’s leaders and personally urge the Shiite-led government to give more power to political opponents before a Sunni insurgency seizes more control across the country and sweeps away hopes for lasting peace. ed against ISIL,” Kerry told a news conference, using the acronym for the al-Qaida-breakaway group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, that has captured huge swathes of Iraqi territory in the north and west. “Not next week, not next month, but now,” he said. “It is essential that Iraq’s leaders form a genuinely inclusive government as rapidly as possible.”
It was a dire warning to leaders of Iraq’s bitterly divided Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish communities that came at a time when the Middle Eastern nation was facing its worst crisis since the withdrawal of U.S. forces in late 2011 after eight years in Iraq. The Sunni fighters have virtually erased Iraq’s western border with Syria and also taken territory on the frontier with Jordan.
Afghan official quits in bid to end crisis The ASSOCIATED PRESS KABUL, Afghanistan – Afghanistan’s chief electoral officer resigned Monday, fulfilling a demand of a presidential candidate alleging fraud and raising hopes an end is in sight to a political crisis that has threatened to undermine the country’s first democratic transfer of authority. Zia ul-Haq Amarkhail told reporters that he denies any involvement in fraud but he is stepping down “for the national interest.” The standoff has forced the main election commission to hold off on releasing partial results from the June 14 runoff vote that pitted former Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah against ex-Finance Minister and World Bank official Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai. Whoever wins will lead the country as it undergoes a major transition from rule by
President Hamid Karzai, the only leader it has known since the 2001 U.S.-led invasion that ousted the Taliban. He also will face a strong challenge to end violence and improve the economy despite a resilient Taliban insurgency and declining foreign aid. Both candidates have promised to sign a security pact with the Obama administration that would allow nearly 10,000 American forces to remain in the country in a training capacity and to conduct counterterrorism operations. A disruption in the announcement of election results could mean another delay in finalizing that agreement, which was rebuffed by Karzai. One of the two candidates, Abdullah Abdullah has said his campaign monitors had recorded ballot box stuffing and other irregularities. He suspended cooperation with the vote counting process and
By HYUNG-JIN KIM The Associated Press SEOUL, South Korea – The South Korean army captured a soldier Monday who it says killed five comrades and then fled into the forest where he holed up with a rifle for two days before shooting himself as pursuers closed in. The massive manhunt ended when the 22-year-old sergeant, surnamed Yim, shot himself in the upper left chest as his father and brother approached, pleading with him to surrender, a Defense Ministry official said. The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of department rules, said Yim was taken to a hospital but his life wasn’t in danger. He didn’t elaborate. Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said the soldier would be handed to military investigators later. Soldiers retrieved Yim’s rifle and ammunition at the site. South Koreans have worried about public safety in
the wake of an April ferry disaster that left more than 300 people dead or missing. And some in Seoul have questioned the discipline and readiness of South Korea’s military in the face of near-constant threats from North Korea, which has recently staged missile and artillery drills, traded fire with the South at sea and threatened South Korea’s leader. Troops had been chasing Yim since authorities said he killed five fellow soldiers and wounded seven Saturday night. He then fled his frontline unit with his standard-issue K2 assault rifle. He fired Sunday on the soldiers chasing him, injuring a platoon leader. On Monday, officials said a South Korean soldier was wounded by suspected friendly fire. Earlier Monday, troops surrounding Yim in the forest tossed him a mobile phone so he could talk to his father. They also threw him bread and bottled water. His parents went to the area to try to persuade him to surrender.
demanded Amarkhail be suspended, claiming the electoral official helped engineer the vote-rigging. Abdullah received news of Amarkhail’s resignation as he was holding a news conference. “The door is now open for us to talk to the commission and talk about the conditions and circumstances that will help the process,” he said. “We do believe in transparency of the process and we will defend the legitimacy of the process.” Western officials have long said they anticipated irregularities and the determining factor would be whether the vote rigging was sufficient to affect the overall outcome. The 2009 re-election of Karzai was marred by widespread ballot box stuffing and proxy voting, leading Abdullah, who was runner-up at the time, to refuse to participate in the runoff.

BAGHDAD – Warning of the “existential threat” posed by Sunni militants, Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday the U.S. is prepared to take military action even if Baghdad delays political reforms, noting that the risks of letting the insurgency run rampant threaten dangers beyond Iraq’s borders. But he stressed military action would not be in support of the present Shiite-led government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Kerry, on a few hours’ visit to Baghdad, urged Iraq’s leaders to quickly set aside divisions as the only means of stopping the vicious Sunni insurgency and said Iraq’s future depended on choices Iraq’s leaders make in the next days and weeks. “The future of Iraq depends primarily on the ability of Iraq’s leaders to come together and take a stand unit-

Ag trade is bright spot for America The United States buys far more products from abroad than it exports. In 2013, for example, the U.S. trade deficit was nearly $475 billion, according a report published in May by The Associated Press. The overall track record of American companies in selling what they produce to the vast number of consumers who live outside U.S. borders has been unimpressive. A recent analysis or trade released by The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated that only 1 percent of our nation’s companies are exporters. This longtime pattern of importing substantially more goods and services than are exported is one of the reasons the U.S. economy remains sluggish. It contributes to a disturbingly persistent amount of unemployment and underemployment. The dismal trade picture would be much worse if it were not for the impressive success of American farmers and ranchers and agricultural industries in finding and cultivating foreign markets. Late last month, the USDA released its Outlook for U.S. Agricultural Trade report. It documents that the agricultural sector of the American economy a trade bright spot. Additionally, it projects even more positive news in the years ahead. The USDA is estimating that in the current fiscal year agricultural exports will reach $149.5 billion. That’s even better than the department’s earlier projections by about $6.9 billion. The volume of U.S. agricultural exports is projected to be 31 percent higher in 2014 than it was in 2013. The USDA analysis concludes that 1 million American jobs are supported by agricultural exports. The bullish current-year picture for agricultural exports is part of a multiyear trend. According to the USDA, the 2009-2013 was the strongest five-year period in agricultural trade history. U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack underlined the importance of these numbers in a statement issued May 29. “This report indicates that the volume of U.S. agricultural exports has increased, which demonstrates an increasing global appetite for high-quality, American-grown products,” he said. He also said his department will be able to maintain and enhance its efforts to promote agricultural sales abroad as a result of provisions of the 2014 Farm Bill. “USDA is able to continue support for trade promotion and market expansion for U.S. agricultural products overseas - programs that return $35 in economic benefits for every dollar invested,” Vilsack said. “These efforts will ensure that America’s farmers and ranchers are well-positioned to capitalize on emerging export markets and continue to drive economic growth in rural America.”

THE FIRST AMENDMENT
Illinois media has fallen for spin Almost 90 percent of the “Yes for Independent Maps” petition entries tossed as invalid by the Illinois State Board of Elections this month were for people who were either not registered to vote or weren’t registered to vote at the address shown on the petitions, official documents show. The group is attempting to get a constitutional amendment on the ballot to reform the state’s indisputably hyper-partisan legislative redistricting process. Yet, the state’s media, led by the Chicago Tribune editorial page, has almost solely focused on problems with signatures that don’t match up to voter registration cards. It’s either a gross misunderstanding of the situation or a deliberate deception.
VIEWS Rich Miller The state board used a computer program to choose 25,000 petition entries at random out of the 500,000 or so entries turned in by the remap reform group. Board employees then examined the entries and struck 13,807 as invalid, for a failure rate of about 55 percent. Of those, 7,535 entries (55 percent of the total rejected) were from people who were not registered to vote, according to Board of Elections Director Rupert Borgsmiller. Another 4,565 (33 percent) were signers who weren’t registered to vote at the address shown on the petition. The Yes
for Independent Maps folks say they believe they can “rehabilitate” 4,130 of those, but that would be highly unusual. They need to restore somewhere between 2,500 and 3,000 petition entries. But despite the fact the remap reform group mainly lost petition challenges based on voter registration, the news media has stubbornly continued to focus on the relatively tiny fight over whether petition signatures matched up to signatures on voter registration cards. The reality is that just 937 petition entries (seven percent of the total rejected) were tossed because the signatures didn’t match up to voter registration files.

To the Editor: The issue of homosexuality, much less gay marriage, obviously has been a huge one for many, many years – much longer than the 27 years I have been alive. But, even in these days, in a country that was founded on freedoms and equality above all, many of our own citizens are treated as sub-par citizens, just based on their sexuality. As a happily married, heterosexual American, I am outraged by this. During my years in the Army, I served alongside numerous homosexual men and women who had to hide who they truly were because of arcane rules and laws. When “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was repealed in 2011, my friends and I celebrated. But they were still unable to have their partners recognized due to the Defense of Marriage Act, and their spouses could not get the same benefits that my wife enjoyed as a military spouse. Now, in 2014, less than half of our states recognize gay marriage. Nineteen out of 50 states have legalized it, with Wisconsin becoming the most recent state to stand up and say enough. That leaves God-only knows how many of our citizens, many of whom are probably hard-working, law-abiding citizens, from being able to live their life freely and happily. It is time we, as a country, leave behind this ’50s and ’60s mentality. It is time we embrace each other as fellow human beings, look toward the future, and learn to let go of our biases. We managed to let go of our prejudices, legally speaking, when it came to the black popula-
States. It is no exaggeration to claim that the prosperity of the Iowa farmer is closely tied to the economic well-being of consumers in a large number of faraway lands. It promises to be an increasingly important economic story in the decades ahead. Too few of the goods this country produces are compet-
itive in foreign marketplaces. That makes the record American farmers are achieving in exports all the more remarkable. It is an encouraging achievement at a time when sluggishness elsewhere in the U.S. economy remains a serious national concern. – Fort Dodge

Another 721 (five percent) were tossed because the Board’s staff examiners couldn’t read the signatures and/or the address to figure out who the person actually was. Yet, a Chicago Associated Press story published last week focused solely on “signatures,” as did a Tribune news story, as did two Tribune editorials, as did pretty much everyone else. Obviously, if the problem is merely matching up signatures, that’s a subjective exercise and ripe for potential abuse. But the real problem with the remap petitions is unregistered or improperly registered voters. These things simply are not subjective. “It’s because of a backroom process, an uneven, rushed process, that it had gotten to this point,” remap reformer Michael Kolenc told reporters last week. The “uneven” process has also been highlighted three times by the Tribune editorial board, and it’s yet another grotesque distortion of the facts. A June 5 Tribune editorial claimed “Individual examiners’ invalidation rates ranged from 17 percent to 86 percent.” In one of two editorials last week, the Tribune finally admitted that they were talking about just two Board staffers. “Should we take the word of the elections board examiners as gospel? One examiner disqualified 86 percent of the signatures he or she checked. Another examiner disqualified only 17 percent.” So, what about those two examiners? Well, if you look at the actual data you’ll see
that the two staffers in question examined only a handful of entries. A tiny sample of a five percent total sample can mathematically explain any wild individual variations. The Board assigned 38 staffers to the examination task. One staffer looked at just a single entry, so let’s toss him out. Of the rest, the number of signatures examined ranged from 1,714 down to 91, for an average of 676 examined and a median of 711. The staffer who “disqualified only 17 percent” examined just 92 petition entries. The staffer who “disqualified 86 percent” looked at just 183 entries. The overwhelming majority of the examiners had pretty close to the final rate of 55 percent invalid. Borgsmiller also noted that in the last two days of the examination process, his staff’s validation rate jumped to over 60 percent. Borgsmiller said that most of the petitions looked at during that period were from Downstate. The Yes for Independent Maps group had several solid Downstate volunteers, particularly in central Illinois. The bottom line here is that this state’s media has fallen for spin that’s made the Board of Elections look like some evil entity. If that’s so, then why did the Board certify Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner’s widely hated by insiders term limits constitutional amendment last week? The most likely answer is almost always the simplest. Rauner obviously ran a tight ship. The remap folks apparently did not.

Courtney a chip off the old Force block John’s daughter hoping to make Funny Car noise at Route 66 NHRA legend John Force has been quoted that his daughter, Courtney, “looks like her mom and races like me.” That’s good on both fronts. Courtney, 25, competes in the Funny Car division, where her dad made his name. One of the exciting young stars in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, she will be at Route 66 Raceway this weekend for the O’Reilly Auto Parts Route 66 Nationals, hoping to move up in the standings. She is running sixth, 312 points behind leader Robert Hight, her teammate and brotherin-law. John Force is third, 257 points down and three points behind Alexis De Joria. Force’s half-sister, Ashley, used to race in Funny Car. She had four victories on her resume, the same number Courtney has now, before exiting to start a family. Force’s sister, Brittany, runs in the NHRA Top Fuel division and is ninth in those
standings. “It’s a big family business, no doubt about it,” said Courtney Force, the youngest of four sisters. “This will be my third time racing here [at Route 66] in a Funny Car. “I remember we always had fun at that track when we used to come watch my dad. That race was how we started our summer. It’s neat to be racing on the same track where we watched my dad race.” Who knows, father and daughter oppose each other this weekend, perhaps in Sunday’s finals. “My dad and I are pretty close against each other, something like 5-4,” Courtney said. “That helps make this a fun job. When we get up to the line against each other, I always try to do something to screw him up. “I’m thankful for where my career has taken me. My dad didn’t believe it at first that this is what I wanted to do. I pestered him enough that he let me do it.”
VIEWS Dick Goss Force, who has a communications degree from Cal State-Fullerton, is athletic. In her youth, she danced and competed in gymnastics. She was a cheerleader In high school “but I also was in auto shop and welding,” she said. “It was the best of all worlds.” She burst onto the Funny Car scene in 2012, when she earned Rookie of the Year honors after finishing fifth in the standings, the best finish for a rookie in Funny Car. As much as racing is in her blood and racing against her dad is a rush, Force said her No. 1 thrill came in late May when she beat Cruz Pedregon to win the NHRA Kansas Nationals at Heartland Park Topeka. That was the historic 100th event won by a woman in NHRA history.
Shirley Muldowney, the grand marshal of the Route 66 Nationals and winner of 18 of those races, must still be smiling. “It was pretty surreal, getting the 100th win by a female,” Force said. “It could have been any of the females out here who got the win. It was true luck that I was in the right place at the right time. My team did a great job putting me in position to get it. “I was close [to securing the 100th] the previous weekend at Atlanta and I was crushed when I didn’t get it. The 100th is definitely the top trophy for me. I’m the only one who will have No. 100 for women next to her name forever. It’s huge to be able to represent women in our sport.” Women currently competing in the professional levels of the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series are Force and De Joria in Funny Car, Brittany Force and Leah Pritchett in Top Fuel, points
leader Erica Enders-Stevens in Pro Stock and Katie Sullivan and Angie Smith in Pro Stock Motorcycle. When you’re handling a 10,000-horsepower car that accelerates to 320 mph in about four seconds, you are an athlete, whether male or female. Force’s athletic build, coupled with her occupation, caught the attention of ESPN The Magazine, which had her on the cover of ESPN’s The Body Issue in 2013. “The ESPN Body Issue was a cool thing,” Force said. “They approached me earlier and I turned it down because I wanted to make a name in the sport first. “They came back the following season, and I thought, ‘Why not showcase what we do?’ I work hard in the gym. I put my full self into it. Why not showcase that?” Indeed, why not? • Dick Goss can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

New faces hope to keep Warriors rolling

“[Nick] Trollian is our three-technique guy. He’s a leader of our defense. [Trey] Tellez is really a good player and is only a sophomore, and [Pete] King is returning. Other than that, every defensive position is up for grabs.”
By DICK GOSS email@example.com JOLIET – In an area that features a glut of quality high school football teams year after year, Lincoln-Way West needed little time to establish that it belongs. The Warriors were 2-7 in 2009, their first year of existence. Since then, they have a 33-12 overall record and have qualified for the playoffs the past four seasons. They finished 8-3 in 2010 and 7-3 in 2011 under Mark Vander Kooi. Dave Ernst took over when Vander Kooi became athletic director at Lincoln-Way East. Ernst’s first two Warriors teams both were quarterfinalists, finishing 8-4 in 2012 and 10-2 last season. The quarterfinal losses in Class 5A have been gut-wrenching. West lost to Joliet Catholic by a matter of inches, 21-20, in 2012 and last season had a tough second half on a muddy track and lost at Sycamore, 21-14. Sycamore also beat the Warriors, 34-21, in the 2013 season opener. West lost a majority of its starters to graduation, so continuing on the winning path this season will be a challenge. But if inexperienced players come through, the talent is there to make it interesting. “We lost a lot, but we’re not poor,” Ernst said during his team’s appearance last week at the University of St. Francis 7-on-7 Passing Jamboree at Memorial Stadium. The Warriors’ strength is their offensive line. Junior Justin Witt, senior Jake Zola, senior Simon Egner, junior Bryan Brokop and senior Jake Heckler will line up from left tackle to right tackle. They average 6-foot-4½ and more than 260 pounds. “We have some of the best linemen we’ve had,” Ernst said. Although a junior, Brokop already has offers from Nebraska, Illinois, Kentucky, Syracuse and North Carolina State, among others. The O-line will block for a pair of juniors who will attempt to fill the shoes of allstater Javier Montalvo. One

“Both of those guys could play some defense, too,” Ernst said. “I feel real good about our
two tailbacks.” The quarterback job will fall to a sophomore, either
Connor Lowman, Dino Burelli or both. “The thing about them is they are not like regular sophomores,” Ernst said. “They run and throw well. We may play both of them.” Joe Shirley, Sam Bellamy and Kurtis Flonder, all seniors, provide a good array of receivers, along with junior tight end Ben Zordani. New faces will be abound as well on the defensive side. For example, “The last two years, I could pencil in the two Grays at safety,” Ernst said of twins Alex and Andrew. “Now, we’re not sure who will play there.” The returning defensive regulars are tackle Nick Trollian, sophomore linebacker Trey Tellez and cornerback Pete King. Cody Marconi, the regular fullback last season, is 6-2, 240 and may play the defensive tackle opposite Trollian. “Trollian is our three-technique guy,” Ernst said. “He’s a leader of our defense. Tellez is really a good player and is only a sophomore, and King is returning. Other than that, every defensive position is up for grabs.” Ernst said he and his coaching staff are working with a young team. “We have a small senior class in terms of numbers, but they’re good seniors,” he said. There are some ifs, perhaps more than in the previous couple of summers. But the Warriors have grown accustomed to winning, and as Ernst said, “We’re not poor.”
North DuPage River Pony Stars sweep South SUBMITTED REPORT CREST HILL – The weather tried valiantly to control the DuPage River Pony Conference finals, with Saturday’s downpour forcing postponement of the scheduled third-place and championship games. Things were back on for Sunday, however, and after the third-place and championship games, the North and South All-Star teams, consisting of players from Channahon, Stone City, Whiteford, Crest Hill and St. Joe’s, played their traditional doubleheader at Richland
School. North swept, beating South, 5-1, and 3-0. In Game 1, Crest Hill pitcher Eddie Valdez, who had a 1.38 regular-season ERA and 100 strikeouts, held South to one run on six hits while striking out 11, walking none and hitting one. After two scoreless innings, North got on the board when Whiteford’s Zach Sherrill hit a two-run homer, scoring Stone City’s Cole Smith, who had singled and stolen second. In the bottom of the fourth, South cut the lead to 2-1 on a single by St. Joe’s Nick Pauly and a double by St. Joe’s Zach
Bebar. North scored twice in the sixth on a double by Stone City’s Jake Sobun, an error and singles by Valdez and Stone City’s Sarah Gersch, the first female ever selected to the all-conference games. Crest Hill’s Nathaniel Magalon and Isaiah Zaragoza executed a suicide squeeze to increase North’s lead to 5-1, closing out the scoring. For South, Troy’s Zach Offerman pitched six innings, allowing five runs on seven hits with seven strikeouts, no walks and two hit batsmen. Valdez doubled for the North. Pauly, St. Joe’s Nick Trevino
and Bebar had two hits for the South. In Game 2, Zaragoza, who sported a 0.88 regular-season ERA, posted the first shutout in the history of the all-conference games. He allowed four hits, stuck out five and walked two. Zaragoza got all of the runs he needed in the bottom of the first. Valdez led off with a single, Zaragoza sacrificed and Stone City’s Cole Smith singled, Sherrill followed with his second homer of the night, a three-run shot. Crest Hill’s James Epting had a double and Whiteford’s Neal Messino and RJ Kohlst-
edt singled for the North. For the South, Channahon Sports Huddle pitcher Zach Gessner also pitched well. After giving up the three-run homer, he allowed no runs. In six innings, he struck out six, walked three and hit one. He allowed five singles and a double, in addition to Sherrill’s decisive homer. Adding hits for South were Channahon Troutman Excavating’s Austin Markee and St. Joe’s Pauly, Bebar and Dan Dominguez. For the North, Sobun closed out the game, pitching the seventh inning, allowing no hits and striking out two.
GRUNDY COUNTY SPEEDWAY
Wienkauf wins ARCA Midwest Tour Calypso 100/Wayne Carter Classic SUBMITTED REPORT MORRIS – Chris Weinkauf led wire-to-wire en route to winning the 100-lap ARCA Midwest Tour Calypso 100/ Wayne Carter Classic on Friday night at Grundy County Speedway.

Weinkauf won the first of the two heats and started the feature on the pole. Nick Barstad, the other heat winner, also started in the front row, but Weinkauf moved ahead of him early on. Jonathan Eilen, the 2013 race winner, and Ty Majeski mounted challenges, but about two-thirds of the way through
the race, Weinkauf pulled away for good. Majeski finished second and Eilen third. Grundy points leader Ricky Baker was the top local finisher, taking fourth place. Eddie Hoffman was fifth, Cardell Porter sixth, Nathan Haseleu seventh, Matt Kocourek eighth and James Swan ninth. In other racing, Chris
Woodall won the second leg of the Grundy/Illiana Street Stock Challenge. Eddie Ligue finished second. Peter Hernandez, Bob Davis, Jacob McKown and Craig Matteson rounded out the top six. Michael Gerike, Mark Ross Jr. and Davis won street stock heats.

As the Spurs showed in the Finals in beating Miami, a deep bench is never a bad thing. The NBA is a copycat league, and with the Bulls severely short-handed the past few years, well, more bodies are definitely required. What we know: Arron Afflalo is on the trade radar for a draft pick, and Nikola Mirotic is in Spain, waiting to see if this is the year he plays in the NBA, while there are a handful of solid free agents who can give Thibodeau a much deeper team. What we don’t know: With James, Anthony and even Chris Bosh all unknowns, would going the depth route even be good enough to overcome a roster with three superstars on it? At least in the Eastern Conference it hasn’t worked yet.

‘YOU NEED SOME TIME TO RECOVER’ Physical therapist/athletic trainer says to not push young athletes too hard By JEANNE MILLSAP Shaw Media Correspondent
HOREWOOD – Recent Joliet West High School graduate Anthony DiNardo knows all about the effects repetitive throws can have on a body. A baseball and football player for his school and a traveling baseball team, DiNardo dislocated his shoulder during a baseball game on his traveling team during a multigame tournament weekend. “It wasn’t even that painful,” DiNardo said. “I wasn’t even sure what happened. I got up, and my arm was like stuck over my head. ... I thought it was a muscle spasm or something.” An MRI showed evidence of previous tears in DiNardo’s shoulder ligaments. He said it was suggested the damage was from years of pitching. His options were therapy or surgery. With his football season two months away, he chose rehab and immediately began therapy. However, his position as quarterback proved to be too much for his recovering throwing arm and DiNardo’s shoulder dislocated once again. This time, it was more serious. “It was stuck down at my side this time,” DiNardo said. “They put it back in right on the field and put a sling on it.” DiNardo was taken to the hospital. Playing was out of the question for the rest of the season. Shoulder labrum instability surgery was scheduled two weeks out. The rest of that fall and winter, all DiNardo wanted was to get his body back in condition for the 2013 baseball season. He planned smart – no travel team and no pitching – only hitting for that season. He worked with his Shorewood physical therapist. It went well, and DiNardo was able to fully throw himself into his senior year

He made All Conference SouthWest Suburban Blue his senior year to add to his freshman year all conference listing in baseball. Yet another labrum instability surgery was needed in January and DiNardo is still in rehabilitation from that one, he said. There will be no baseball this year, although he hopes to return full strength for collegiate sports in a few months, DiNardo added. When considering sports for children, parents should not encourage yearround participation in the same sport. And they should not overdo a
sport during the season, either. That’s the recommendation of the American Sports Medicine Institute. “The overhead throwing motion [in baseball] is one of the most violent motions in sports,” said Tony Testin, physical therapist with Newsome Physical therapy in Shorewood. “The average internal rotation velocity for an accelerating arm at 85 miles per hour is 7,000 degrees per second. That’s a huge amount of torque that’s put on the joints in the shoulder and elbow.” The windmill throw of softball is not quite as bad, Testin said, but overhead throwing causes an enormous strain on muscles, joints and especially ligaments. Testin said he has seen in recent years an increase in the number of elbow injuries in young baseball players, some
of which result in surgery and long-lasting physical repercussions. Most of these injuries are do to overuse, he added. Physical therapist/athletic trainer Kendra Erickson, of Newsome Physical Therapy at Louis Point in Joliet, said many athletes are able to regain their mechanics and come back after an injury, but it’s important for parents to advocate for their young athletes. This will help prevent joint injuries and halt ones that are progressing. “The big push now is to get kids not to play the same sport yearround,” Erickson said. “It can take a toll on your body. With repetitive stresses, your body’s going to start to break down. Even professional players have an off season. You need some time to recover.” Erickson said during off seasons, youth athletes can work on their core or partic-
ipate in a sport that does not overuse the same joints and muscles. Her practice also offers a video analysis program for pitchers, which can show when throwing mechanics may potentially injure a young athlete. For instance, Erickson said, if an analysis shows the elbow is lower than the shoulder during a throw, a change may be recommended. Erickson said the results are then given to the child’s coach. Identifying problems early can help prevent future injuries, she added. Parents should make sure coaches don’t push the kids too hard. They should also pay attention to any problems they may see when the child is playing, even if the child doesn’t complain. “They don’t want to stop,” she said. “So they may not tell you.”

Neuroscience institute offers clinic in Joliet
Erik and Michelle Williams of Channahon stand with recently donated memory boxes for parents whose children die just before or after birth and to families who suffered a late-term miscarriage. Also standing with them: Marilyn Paolella, director of Women and Infant Services for Silver Cross Hospital; and Silver Cross Birthing Center nurses Hannah Fischer and Bev Huiner. home, as Michelle Williams waited in her hospital room for her husband to return from their car, she held not her new son, but a memory box. In memory of their son, they organized the area’s
first “A Walk to Remember” in October 2010 for Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Proceeds went to Angels of Hope, an organization based out of Coal City, that helps anyone dealing with the emotional or phys-
ical absence of a child. Since then, they have teamed up with Angels of Hope to do Sawyer’s Heart Project, which creates and gives memory boxes for hospitals to provide to families who suffer pregnancy or infant loss while in the hospital. Thus, this is “Sawyer’s Heart” donation. What the boxes contain depends on the sex and term of the child. There are boxes for micro preemie, preemie and fullterm babies. Micro preemie babies are born between 18 and 24 weeks. Preemies are babies who are born 24 to 36 weeks. All the boxes contain bereavement literature; copies of the books “When Hello Means Goodbye” and “The Christmas Box,” which are about grieving the loss of a child; foot/hand molds;
picture holders; blankets; a small stuffed animal and hand-knitted hats and/or booties. The micro preemie boxes contain “Angel Wraps,” which are hand-knitted wraps just the size for a micro preemie child. Preemie boxes contain preemie-size clothes and fullterm boxes newborn clothes. Some boxes contain disposable cameras. The majority of the items in the boxes were donated. At least a dozen people, some from other states, hand-knitted the items. Angels of Hope is a nonprofit corporation located in Morris that was created in August 2005 to serve as beacons of hope for anyone dealing with the emotional or physical absence of a child.

Use bids and plays to place key cards
Agatha Christie said, “It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City. New York City is itself a detective story.” Little did she know what would happen after she was gone. But working out the right play or defense is often like a detective story. There are numerous clues that should be used to find the solution. In this deal, South is in four hearts. West leads the diamond 10: four, six, ace. How should East plan the defense? South opens with a textbook weak two-bid at unfavorable vulnerability: a good six-card suit and 6-10 high-card points. North knows game might have no play, but the vulnerable game bonus is very tempting. East should ask himself which honors are held by South. He has already produced the diamond ace and the bidding strongly suggests that he also has the heart king and queen. So he cannot have the club king. As a consequence, East can hope for two club tricks, the heart ace and either a diamond trick or a club ruff. South immediately takes two of dummy’s top spades to discard his diamond loser. Then he calls for the heart jack, feigning a finesse for the queen. But East should not fall for it. He should grab the trick with his ace and shift to his club four. West wins with his king and returns the club three. East takes that trick and gives his partner a club ruff. When defending, keep your eye on the target: the number of tricks your side needs to defeat the contract.

ADVICE Bored, lonely teen should find hobby Suicide warning signs Dear Abby: My 19-year-old sister died two years ago from an overdose. I’m 13. We were very close when we were little, but during the four years before she passed away, my parents didn’t want us around each other for fear of her rubbing off on me, and she wasn’t home half the time anyway. A year earlier she went to rehab, and I remember talking with her about how she was clean for good and then ... It’s just so lonely! All my friends have sisters and brothers and I don’t, and I’m bored all the time. My parents work a lot, so I’m home alone at least three times a week, and although I’ve got friends and sports, I’m just really alone. It’s awkward going out to dinner or going on vacation
DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips because my parents just want to sit and relax, and I want to go out and do things, but it’s embarrassing going everywhere with your parents. I miss having her around. – Alone In Ohio Dear Alone: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your sister. You are still grieving, which is why you say you feel alone. However, if you think about it, because of her addiction, she has been out of your life for longer than two years. It may be that what you’re really mourning is the relationship you MIGHT have had. You say you have friends. If
you listen to them talk, you may find that they, too, sometimes feel alone even if they have siblings. Many teenagers have told me this. Because you’re bored when you’re not with your friends or participating in sports, consider finding a hobby that will fill your time when your parents are working, or do some volunteering if they agree. You might also consider adopting a pet from a shelter to keep you company. Of course, pets require feeding, training, affection and exercise, but in return they offer unconditional love and companionship. If it would be all right with your parents, it might be a solution for you. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.
Overuse of antibiotics poses serious health threat Dear Doctor K: I’ve been hearing a lot about “antibiotic resistance.” What does it mean? Dear Reader: When penicillin was discovered, many people (including doctors) thought bacterial infections would become a thing of the past. Unfortunately, penicillin and other early antibiotics didn’t successfully treat all kinds of bacteria that make us sick. Even worse, bacteria adapted to fight antibiotics. All they had to do was the thing they do best: Keep multiplying. Bacteria multiply so fast that one bacterium becomes millions in 24 hours. When bacteria (and other cells) divide, mutations (changes in their genes) can occur. Sometimes these mutations allow the bacteria to resist antibiotics. And when they divide, they pass that antibiotic resistance on to their offspring. Now there are millions of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Let’s say that you get strep throat and your doctor prescribes penicillin. Strep throat is a sore throat caused by the bacteria called streptococci. The antibiotic (penicillin) will kill off most of the strep bacteria, but a few strep bacteria might develop resistance to penicillin, survive and multiply. They often remain alive in your throat. At first, there are not enough of them to cause trouble. But down the road they can cause
ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff another case of strep throat. This time, you might not respond to penicillin. Antibiotic resistance is a serious problem, causing millions of illnesses and more than 20,000 deaths in the United States each year. Over time, if antibiotic use doesn’t change, antibiotics will become less able to treat common infections. We may be left with no drugs in our arsenal that can kill certain bacteria. Overuse of antibiotics is the most common cause of drug-resistant bacteria. Many people demand antibiotics to treat viral infections. But antibiotics treat only bacterial infections. Viruses cause a sore throat more often than streptococci bacteria. Therefore, if you take penicillin for every sore throat, most of the time it won’t help you. And if taking penicillin causes penicillin-resistant bacteria to grow in your body, taking it could hurt you. In the past, doctors routinely treated ear infections, bronchitis and other infections with antibiotics. But we now know that many cases of sore throat (those not caused by strep), bronchitis,
and sinus and ear infections will get better on their own. (Though when you really have a strep throat, you need to take penicillin.) We can all take steps to help slow the growth of antibiotic resistance – or even turn it around.
Decrease excess use of antibiotics: • Don’t demand antibiotics. If your doctor says you don’t need an antibiotic, ask what else you can do to decrease your symptoms. • Don’t save antibiotics and start them again without specific instructions from your doctor. • Don’t share antibiotics with your friends and family.
Prevent infections: • Wash your hands regularly (with regular, not antibacterial, soap). • Sneeze into your elbow, not your hand. • Stay home from work or school if you are sick. • Stay up-to-date with your vaccinations.

Dr. Wallace: My best friend was dating a super nice guy who was recently killed in an automobile accident. She took it very hard and has been mourning him for over a month. She keeps saying that she wishes she could die too so that she could be with her boyfriend. Now I’m beginning to be really worried about her. I told my mother about this and she thought we should talk to my friend’s mother about this, so we did. When we talked to her she listened carefully, but she said that she thinks my friend will snap out of it eventually. She said she didn’t see any signs that my friend is suicidal. My mom and I still think that when someone says they want to die to be with their boyfriend, that it could be a sign that the person is suicidal. Please tell us what the signs are for a teen to commit suicide. I want to show them to my friend’s mom. I want to make sure that nothing happens to my best friend. – Bonnie, Jackson, Miss. Dear Nameless: According to CPC Psychiatric Hospital in Santa Ana, California, every suicide threat should be taken seriously.
Suicide warning signs 1. A previous suicide attempt. (Many people will try again.) 2. Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. 3. Preoccupation with death. 4. Anxiety and tension. 5. Alcohol and/or drug abuse. 6. Withdrawal from family and friends.
’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace 7. Purchase of a weapon, rope, pills or any suspicious item. 8. Giving away prized possessions. 9. Abrupt changes in behavior. 10. Changes in sleeping patterns and/or eating habits. 11. Verbal threats, such as, “You’d be better off without me,” or “I wish I were dead.”
Getting help 1. Use suicide hotlines. Since there are too many to list here, check the phone book under Crisis, Counseling, Mental Health or Suicide Prevention, or look in the front pages under these listings. 2. Call the family doctor, contact a teacher, school counselor, clergyperson, coach or any other adult you respect. At the very least, try to tell a friend, and ask her or him for help. 3. Go to a hospital. Many emergency rooms are still open seven days a week, 24 hours a day. 4. Dial the police emergency number – usually 911.
Important • Don’t give up if you get a busy signal (especially on a hotline). Try again, and try the other options above. • It is a myth that people who plan to commit suicide want to die. The fact is most that someone will intervene, and save them. Bonnie, you are in a very good emotional state of mind. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@ galesburg.net.

The knowledge and experience you gain and offer will lead to a long-lasting friendship and a unique collaboration.

‘Young and Beautiful’: Finding depth is the real trick By MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN The Washington Post It’s probably not a good sign that Isabelle, a French teenager on summer vacation, has what seems to be an out-of-body experience while losing her virginity to a cute German on the beach. The visual metaphor in Francois Ozon’s strangely dispassionate “Young and Beautiful” – in which the character appears both to watch herself being deflowered and to watch herself watching – seems less an indication of emotional detachment than the onset of serious mental illness. The smoke has barely cleared from the candles on Isabelle’s 17th birthday cake before our dewy young heroine (Marine Vacth) finds herself back in Paris, inexplicably turning tricks after school at 300 euros a pop. You might wonder, at 15 minutes in, whether a chunk of celluloid somehow went missing. I certainly did, until it became clear, as the movie wore on, that Ozon isn’t interested in explanations, psychological insights, lessons, judgments, diagnoses, or any of the other stuff that normally preoccupies storytellers. The filmmaker does, however, seem unusually interested in the mechanics of sex. There are lots of shots of a naked 22-year-old Vacth – who looks closer to her character’s age – engaged in various sex acts, mostly with much older men, whose predilections tend toward the sadly predictable. Why Isabelle becomes a prostitute is the film’s enduring mystery, and no typical explanation makes sense. She certainly doesn’t need the money. Her mother and stepfather (Geraldine Pailhas and Frederic Pierrot) give her everything she needs. It doesn’t look like empowerment either, given the misogyny Isabelle must put up with. Teenage rebellion? An attempt to feel grown up? Peer pressure? Addiction? Nothing seems to fit. Even the most obvious answer – pleasure, given a masturbation scene early in the film – doesn’t correspond with the expression of sullen tedium on Isabelle’s face before, during and after every liaison. When Isabelle’s mother finds out – courtesy of detectives investigating
Geraldine Pailhas (left) and Marine Vacth star in the film “Young and Beautiful.” a client’s death by heart attack – her disgust at her daughter’s behavior actually seems reasonable. Isabelle is a singularly unappealing character, with little that might engender sympathy. Despite being young and beautiful, as the title says, Isabelle comes across as “bad to the bone,” to quote her mother. So what, then, is “Young and Beautiful” ultimately about? It’s not an exploration of adolescent female sexuality. Ozon is clearly more interested in what makes Isabelle’s wrinkled clientele tick (Viagra, in one case) than he is in her. Although her relationship with one white-haired customer (Johan Leysen) is mildly touching, it’s almost entirely because
of him, not her. After Isabelle quits, there’s a glimmer of hope that she’ll learn how to develop healthy relationships. She even meets a nice boy (Laurent Delbecque) whom she seems, briefly, to fancy. But Ozon has created a monster that he can’t seem to let go of. Isabelle doesn’t just frighten her mother (and us). She seems to terrify Ozon, and I’m not sure I want to know why.
• “Young and Beautiful” received one-and-a-half stars out of four. The film is unrated and contains sex, nudity and crude language. It is in French and some German with subtitles. It runs 95 minutes.
