D-86 receives final report on plan By FELIX SARVER fsarver@shawmedia.com JOLIET – Joliet Public School District 86 wrapped up its three-year strategic plan. School officials gave their annual report at Wednesday’s board of school inspectors meeting on the strategic plan to improve the school district through student achievement, services, disciplinary measures, technology, human resources and community involvement. Superintendent Charles Coleman said it was the last day of classes but also the day for the final report on the strategic plan.

Student achievement

Colleen McKay, district director of teaching and learning, said school staff worked on improving student achievement by establishing and supporting profession learning communities. Besides aligning district curriculum to Common Core standards, student achievement data to identify needs for

teacher training and curriculum. Some of those needs included writing and math instruction, as well as guided reading. “Guided reading is activities that are done with a small groups of students,” McKay said. “The teacher might model a whole group lesson and then break off into small groups to work with students based on their needs.”

Student services

Tanisha Cannon, assistant superintendent for student services, worked with staff to create a safe and supportive environment for students. A multi-tiered system of support for students was created to address their needs. A “universal screener” system for behavior issues was designed. “The goal with the screener is to be proactive,” Cannon said. Cannon said one program implemented for many schools to help reduce student behavioral incidents was the Conversation Help Activity Movement Participation Success program. She said the program has helped with reducing

student referrals and suspensions.

Technology, human resources

Board inspectors also learned at the meeting how the district was able to upgrade its network infrastructure, increase quantities of computers at school and help teachers with technology learning needs. The school district also set out to attract, recruit and retain more staff members by expanding public relations efforts, participating in job fairs and partnering with colleges and universities, said Cheryl Woods-Clendening, assistant superintendent for human resources and labor relations. Board inspector Quinn Adamowski asked Woods-Clendening for information on how diverse the staff has become in three years. Board inspector Anthony Contos also wanted to know what colleges and universities they attended. “There’s a magic to having a good mix there … if we get them all from one spot, that’s not good thinking,” Contos said.



Construction on Route 6 to begin soon

By JEANNE MILLSAP Shaw Media Correspondent CHANNAHON – Those using the Route 6 interchange at Interstate 55 in Channahon should expect some delays in the coming months, as a major construction project is expected to begin within the next two weeks. Residents, business owners and others who use the exchange took advantage of an Illinois Department of Transportation open house Wednesday at Channahon Village Hall to learn more about the project and what they can expect of the construction congestion. The two-and-a-half year construction project will involve replacement of the Route 6 overpass bridge deck and eventually a reconfiguration of three of the four frontage roads at the interchange. The bridge construction should be completed by November 2016, IDOT engineer Sami Daniel said. The frontage roads project is expected to begin in the spring and be completed by October 2017. Congestion and back-ups are expected for a while, but

Village President Missey Schumacher said the upgrades are needed. “It’s a safety issue,” she said. “The structure of that bridge is in very bad repair. It will also be widened and have longer lanes for truck stacking.” Another reason for the construction is research found the traffic volume at the exchange is expected to increase by 42 percent by 2040. “The traffic volumes far exceed the two lanes we have now,” Channahon’s Director of Public Works Ed Dolezal said. One lane will be left open for traffic during the construction, Dolezal said, which likely will lead to some bottlenecks. Village officials hope the frontage road re-route will address a traffic problems at the Pilot Travel Center on Route 6 just east of the interstate. Truck drivers are not allowed to turn left from the station to return to the interstate, a measure enacted after traffic jams at the site. Residents complained that trucks would snake out onto Route 6 from the station and block traffic. When the southeast front-

age road is re-aligned, it will run along the east side of the Pilot station and have a signal at Route 6. John Carnagio, owner of the Channahon McDonald’s at the southwest corner of the exchange, attended the open house to discuss the traffic flow changes around his restaurant. “I think it’s overall a good thing,” he said. “My concern is that I want to make sure my entrance stays open.” Carnagio said he was assured it would and that when the project is complete, his southwest frontage road will align with the northwest frontage road and have a traffic signal. Schumacher said the changes will provide a more welcoming “front door” for Channahon and easier access to the community for residents and visitors. “It will be congested, and people may need to consider alternative routes for a while,” she said. “I can’t sugarcoat that in any way. But we ask that our residents be patient and keep their eye on the prize because it will vastly improve this area.”

also will help sponsor children who can’t afford the $50 fee. The majority of children who attend will need a sponsorship, Burns said. Children at the camp share their stories, create memory boxes and talk about emotions and coping skills. At the end of the four days, parents join the children and release balloons into the air as a symbolic gesture, Burns said.

Local nonprofits ‘grateful’ for $3K donation for youth By LAUREN LEONE-CROSS lleonecross@shawmedia.com JOLIET – One thousand dollars may not seem like much. But for local nonprofits, that money can go a long way. For the Joliet Area Community Hospice, it can help children attend the nonprofit’s Journey Children’s Day Camp, a program designed to help grieving children who have lost loved ones. At the Greater Joliet Area YMCA, it can help provide free swimming lessons to low-income children through the nonprofit’s year-round Project Smith Opportunities for Activities and Recreation program. And $1,000 can fill funding gaps at the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center, where victims of child abuse can find a safe place to talk to law enforcement. That’s why the Holly Club of Joliet – through its 126-year history – makes it a point annually to raise money for nonprofits during the group’s Holly Club Lawn Party. The Lawn Party celebration, held Tuesday at the Jacob Henry Mansion, aims to celebrate patronesses and to raise money. This year’s proceeds benefit the aforementioned nonprofits, with a “focus on children and summer programs,” club President Lori Bergman said. “There are so many worthy nonprofits, but only so many funds,” Bergman said. “If we had more, we’d be able to give more. We’re happy to do what we can.” The Holly Club each year aims to raise $3,000 each year to split three ways, Bergman said. While the silent auction money was still being counted as of Wednesday, the club

So this takes those barriers away.”

Journey Children’s Day Camp

A program for the Holly Club’s annual Lawn Party lies next to silverware Tuesday at the Jacob Henry Mansion in Joliet. expected to raise a little more than $3,000.

Project S.O.A.R. Maurice Fears, executive director for the Smith Branch of the Greater Joliet Area YMCA, said the nonprofit appreciates the support. The money will help pay for the YMCA’s Project S.O.A.R. – a year-round program designed for children

who can’t afford swimming lessons at the YMCA’s regular prices. “One thousand dollars may not sound like a lot to some people, but the Y is grateful,” Fears said. He said Project S.O.A.R. started nearly a decade ago after YMCA staff noticed people weren’t using the pool as much as they had hoped. “We noticed the pools were

The idea behind Journey Children’s Day Camp – now in its 12th year – is to provide a safe place for children to grieve the loss of a loved one. “They are the ‘disenfrachised grievers,’ ” said Mary Ann Burns, bereavement coordinator at Joliet Area Community Hospice. “Often adults don’t know how to talk to children about death. ... This provides a place for children to meet people their own age who are going through the same loss.” About $1,000, she said, will help pay for direct programming costs for the four-day camp, held at the C.W. Avery Family YMCA and Ira Jones Middle School. The money

The remaining $1,000 will go toward the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center, founded in 1995 by Will County State’s Attorney Jim Glasgow to improve the way child abuse cases are investigated. The Children’s Advocacy Center provides services to children who are victims of sexual abuse and severe physical abuse, including child sensitive interviews for law enforcement purposes, counseling, medical exams, legal advocacy and community resource referrals. In an emailed statement, Glasgow said the Holly Club’s “generous donation of $1,000 will go a long way” at the center. “Our goal is to reduce the child’s trauma by obtaining their statement in a onetime, videotaped interview,” Glasgow wrote in the email. “The Children’s Advocacy Center guides children and families through the interview process and provides critical follow-up assistance after a family leaves the center.” Helen Redfern, a Holly Club member, said the goal of the organization is to “fill the gaps where needed,” with community nonprofits that struggle for stable funding sources. Bergman said The Holly Club also gave out three $5,000 grants this year to Easter Seals, Catholic Charities’ Hands of Hope counseling program and the Will-Grundy Medical Clinic.

Mojoes owner decides to leave Joliet Owner unhappy with city officials over recent overcrowding charges By FELIX SARVER fsarver@shawmedia.com JOLIET – The owner of Mojoes of Joliet no longer wants to be in the city after facing several charges of overcrowding he thinks were inappropriate. Chris Triebes, 31, of Wheaton, said he decided to find another person to take on the remainder of the lease for the downtown nightclub after receiving two overcrowding charges from city officials in May that he didn’t “feel are legitimate.” “I know I’m being watched like a hawk [by Joliet police]. I’m not stupid enough to sell an extra 50 tickets while they are spying on me across the street,” Triebes said. Triebes pleaded guilty to

the first charge of overcrowding for an April 11 show. He said he thought about finding a larger venue, but after the past two charges, he was no longer interested in running the nightclub in Joliet. Triebes said he’s told people, “I will never do business in that city again.” Triebes, who has run Mojoes for more than four years, said he’s had 20 people ask him about running Mojoes and he’s narrowed the pool of potential owners to two to three candidates. He declined to reveal who they are, but he said they also are club owners. In recent weeks, city officials issued Mojoes a citation that included a charge that the club exceeded its maximum occupancy both May 17 and May 6. The club’s liquor license will

Triebes was to be a promoter. He said Triebes didn’t indicate his problems with the citations issued to his club during that talk. Although the city was charging Mojoes with overcrowding, O’Dekirk said Wednesday that city officials advised him on structural changes to the club, such as Felix Sarver – fsarver@shawmedia.com knocking down walls for more Mojoes of Joliet, 22 W.

Forest Preserve considers revenue source for capital projects By LAUREN LEONE-CROSS lleonecross@shawmedia.com JOLIET – Will County Forest Preserve District officials have begun discussions over a $7.8 million long-term “capital enhancement” program – and how they intend to pay for it. Among the projects under consideration are a $35,000 dog park drinking fountain at the Hammel Woods Dog Park in Shorewood, the $675,000 construction of a larger shelter at the Isle a la Cache Museum in Romeoville, and $700,000 in trail and bridge improvements for the Rock Run Greenway Trail. A draft list of potential projects was provided Wednesday during the district’s Board of Commissioners’ Operations Committee meeting. With the district facing a $400,000 budget deficit during

Forest Preserve backs off trail work after governor’s grant cuts JOLIET – Forest Preserve District of Will County officials said they’re backing down from plans to undergo $2 million in trail improvements at the Plum Creek Greenway in Crete. The decision was made in light of Gov. Bruce Rauner’s announcement Wednesday that the state has no plans to award grants for

the development of land for public parks and open space during the coming budget year in the face of the state’s fiscal crisis, said Ralph Schultz, the district’s planning and operations director. That’s leaving Forest Preserve District of Will County officials on guard about planned projects tied to state funding, Schultz said.

“Based on some of the governor’s recent statements, there won’t be any grants [to apply for],” Schultz said. “If he’s talking about canceling things, I can’t imagine him including them in the budget.” The district could not afford to take on the project without the assistance of state dollars, he said. – Lauren Leone-Cross

the current fiscal year, Commissioner Chuck Maher said officials will have to start discussing levy rates – which have gone unchanged for years – to possibly pay for these projects. “As we go into the budget process, [we’ll have to look at] where our revenues are going to come from,” Maher said.

“Potentially, to get a lot of this stuff done, we will start having discussions on whether we’ll have to raise the rates or not. That will be part of the discussion.” The district’s new fundraising arm – Friends of the Forest Preserve – also should play a key role, he said. Some commissioners

Wednesday initially questioned the price – and the need – for a $35,000 dog fountain. Another dog park water fountain at Messenger Marsh carries an estimated price tag of $55,000. “That seems like an expensive water fountain,” said Commissioner Beth Rice, D-Bolingbrook.

Ralph Schultz, planning and operations director, said most of the cost comes from having to tap into an offsite municipal water source. There’s no water source on the park site, and just one of the district’s five dog parks have water on-site, he said. “Once we have water there, the fountain itself is only about $5,000,” Schultz said. The addition of water fountains at dog parks is in response to park users’ overwhelming requests, Schultz said. As part of a long-term plan to restructure operations and downsize staff over the next few years, the district is instituting an early retirement program beginning this summer, scaling back programming, events and staffing while shifting resources to land maintenance.

Officer tackles suspected car burglar in Joliet By BRIAN STANLEY bstanley@shawmedia.com JOLIET – Police say an officer joined a victim’s pursuit of a burglar Tuesday night. An officer was near Reardon and Facel Vega drives at 11:46 p.m. when he heard yelling and used his car’s spotlight to see a man running north through a park with two

L-WW staffer arrested on sex charges By BRIAN STANLEY bstanley@shawmedia.com NEW LENOX TOWNSHIP – A Lincoln-Way West teacher’s aide was arrested Wednesday on charges police say resulted from a sexual relationship with a student last year. Jacob J. Wieclaw, 25, of the 22500 block of Country Lane in New Lenox, was arrested by Will County Sheriff’s police on two counts of criminal sexual Jacob J. assault and two Wieclaw counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. According to jail records, Wieclaw was booked into the jail shortly after midnight and released about 10:20 a.m. after posting a $100,000 bond. On Jan. 31, 2014, a Lincoln-Way West administrator called sheriff’s police to report a possible sexual assault between Wieclaw and a then-16year-old student, according to sheriff’s spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer.

Joliet Mayor Maurice Berlinsky (left) welcomes civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. to a rally June 4, 1965, at Joliet Memorial Stadium. The Rev. V.M. Herron, pastor of the Second Baptist Church, is next to King and the Rev. A.M. Varnado of Mt. Olive Baptist Church on the right.

Fifty years ago on this day, a little more than 2,000 people heard Martin Luther King Jr. speak in Joliet. Rally organizers had expected 10,000 to attend Citizens Action for Racial Brotherhood on June 4, 1965. at Memorial Stadium. The Rev. V.M. Herron told The Herald-News at the time of the speech the turnout was “disappointing.” Herron was among a group of ministers who wanted King to speak at the rally and prevailed upon his friend, Ernest Gibson, to make the request. Gibson was on the faculty of Tuskegee University and a member of the Tuskegee Civic Association when King and Ralph Abernathy came down to seek advice in forming a Montgomery Civic Association. “We got to know each other and later I bought the A.G. Gaston Motel in Birmingham around the same time he moved the [civil rights] movement there,” Gibson recalled this week. “I was renovating the motel, and he took most of my rooms.” Civil rights protests

VIEWS Brian Stanley sparked violence during that “long, hot summer” and Gibson gave up hotel management shortly after the Gaston was bombed, eventually becoming food services director for the Joliet Township High Schools and Joliet Junior College. Gibson called the Atlanta office of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and left a message for King. “Martin called back himself and said, ‘I’m going to be [in] Philadelphia, then I’ve got to stop in Chicago and see Mayor Daley and then I’ve got Kansas City the next day. While I’m there, I’ll come to Joliet,’ ” Gibson said. King was expected to ride in a motorcade from the airport and stop to meet with the press at Barry and Green Garden avenues in the Fairmont area between Joliet and Lockport, where eight children had died in a home fire.

“That was misdirection. They’d [announce] he’d be at one airport when he was coming in the other. It was a security thing,” said Ferdinand Range, who drove the limousine that took King and his aides from Joliet Municipal Airport to the stadium. Before Range chauffeured the Nobel Peace Prize winner, he was given a little red pin to wear on his lapel. “The Secret Service told me, ‘That’s so we know who not to shoot,’ ” Range said. Range recalled the feds were less than thrilled King ended up at the “stadium where it’s a wide open field and anybody could take a shot. ...They knew he was at risk wherever he was.” The rally began at 7 p.m., but King arrived at 8:45 p.m. and gave a stump speech, according to Range. “We’re facing the challenges of a new age. Nobody can doubt that the old order is passing and a new order is coming into being – an order of racial integration,” King

JOLIET – A Channahon family has filed a lawsuit that alleges their daughter’s fatal May 2014 car crash was because of a major defect in the vehicle they bought. General Motors, D’Arcy Buick GMC Inc. of Joliet and Bolingbrook-based Manheim Remarketing Inc. have been named as defendants in the lawsuit, which was filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court. In the lawsuit, the couple alleges Manheim, operating as Manheim Arena Illinois, did not properly install a part of the vehicle. General Motors was named in the suit as the car’s manufacturer and D’Arcy Buick because it is where the vehicle was purchased. A little more than a week after graduating from Minooka Community High School, 18-year-old Madison Angus was driving a 2005 Pontiac G6 vehicle south near 23800 S. Canal Road in Channahon on May 26, 2014, when the car’s power steering assist failed, causing it to veer off the roadway and hit a tree, according to the lawsuit obtained through an attorney representing the family. A month later, General Motors issued “Safety Recall 14116,” acknowledging a defect in the power steering assist, the lawsuit states. “Madison was a beautiful 18-year-old girl,” said Robert Napleton, a Chicago attorney representing the family. “Each of the family members – mom, dad, three younger sisters – all suffered from profound loss of Madison’s love and guidance.” The family is pursuing monetary damages exceeding $50,000 in addition to attorney and court costs.

Plainfield farmer claims to be cleaning up his farm

to e m Co

The Will County


By VIKAAS SHANKER vshanker@shawmedia.com PLAINFIELD – Plainfield farmer Herman Fritz said he has been cleaning up burn piles and construction debris he reportedly deposited along the bank of the DuPage River over several decades. He also commented on his May 12 arrest on criminal charges related to alleged environmental violations. “I’m cleaning the stuff up,” Fritz said Monday. He said burn piles that once reached at least 10 feet high have been cleared off the farm. Fritz said some people he knows, including neighbors, have helped him clean up the farm. Fritz has to clean up construction debris he reportedly dumped on the bank of the DuPage River bordering the south and west end of his farm, located northwest of the intersection at Route 59 and Caton Farm Road. Records from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers allege he has dumped hazardous waste into and along the riverbank since at least 1998. But Fritz said he has dumped construction materials and metal wastes along the river since 1954, when a flood destroyed crops on his farm and swept some of the land into the river. He was using the construction debris in lieu of dirt and sandbags, which he claimed wouldn’t prevent receding

Plainfield farmer Herman Fritz looks out at the DuPage River, in which he said he dumped construction waste along the bank to protect his farm from flooding. flood waters from taking his farm. State investigators acted on the reported dumping after a TV news report highlighted it, leading to an emergency injunction issued by the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office to stop Fritz or anyone else from dumping waste along the DuPage River in the area. Fritz maintained he hasn’t dumped waste since the injunction. Requests for comment from one of Fritz’s neighbors who in the past has been critical of Fritz were not immediately returned. Along with civil litigation, Fritz is facing criminal charges stemming from the November reports of dumping. He has been charged with 10 felony and misdemeanor charges. Authorities issued a warrant May 7 for Fritz’s arrest

and gave him a chance to turn himself in. Fritz surrendered May 12 and paid 10 percent of the $50,000 bond that had been set. Fritz said he didn’t know about the warrant until May 12. “I had to get some farming supplies that morning,” he said. “I got a call. So I went to the bank, got the money out of the bank. The cops arrested me and I paid the bail.” Will County State’s Attorney spokesman Charles Pelkie said a hearing for the criminal case is scheduled for June 12. Pelkie declined to comment on any questions about the open case or if cleanup has been occurring. He confirmed environmental inspectors from the Will County Land Use Department have been out on the property.

By BRIAN STANLEY bstanley@shawmedia.com JOLIET – The remaining suspect in the 2013 Hickory Street slayings is scheduled to face a jury next week. Defense attorney Edward Jaquays asked Judge Amy Bertani-Tomczak on Wednesday to have measurements taken to determine which suit Adam M. Landerman, 21, will wear when his trial begins Tuesday. Landerman

is charged with murder for allegedly killing Eric Glover Jr. and Terrance Rankins, both 22, on Jan. 9, 2013. Assistant Will County State’s Attorney Dan Walsh told Bertani-Tomczak that prosecutors expect their side of the case will take at least a week to present. The judge has scheduled a hearing for Monday afternoon to address whether to allow the use of a statement Landerman allegedly gave to police.

When police came to Alisa Massaro’s house in the 1100 block of North Hickory Street, they reportedly found the bodies of Adan M. Glover Jr. and Landerman Rankins upstairs and discovered Landerman hiding behind some boards in the basement. Rankins and Glover were

lured to the house expecting to party with Massaro and Bethany McKee, investigators have said. But instead, Joshua Miner and Landerman were waiting with the young women after the four allegedly made plans to attack and rob them. Miner strangled Rankins while Landerman allegedly strangled Glover; they got about $100, desecrated the bodies and made plans to dismember them before police interrupted them, according to

testimony at previous trials. Massaro pleaded guilty in May 2014 to robbery and concealing a homicide in exchange for testifying against the others and a 10-year prison sentence. McKee and Miner were both found guilty during separate bench trials before now-retired Judge Gerald Kinney and sentenced to life in prison. Landerman also faces life in prison if convicted.

Talk resurfaces of permanent control tower at Lewis University Airport By LAUREN LEONE–CROSS lleonecross@shawmedia.com

ROMEOVILLE – Long-discussed plans for a permanent control tower at Lewis University Airport have resurrected – but whether the estimated $6 million project will come to fruition is up in the air. “There’s only so much federal and state funding for these types of projects. And we’re all fighting for it,” said Chris Lawson, director for the Joliet Regional Port District, which owns and operates the airport. In addition to serving aviation students at Lewis University, the airport is a designated “reliever airport” for other Chicago region airports. A permanent control tower would benefit the airport when it gets exceptionally busy, Lawson said, such as when NASCAR racing teams come to the Chicagoland Speedway. Lawson said NASCAR brings in its own temporary control tower during those busier times, but a permanent control tower would make landings at the airport safer while attracting more com-

Congressman Dan Lipinski talks about transportation needs in the region Monday at Lewis University Airport in Romeoville. mercial jets, serving as an economic boon to the region. U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-Western Springs, visited the airport Monday to talk about the need for capital improvements. As the senior member from Illinois on the U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee

and a member of the Aviation Subcommittee, Lipinski said he’s made it a priority to bring a permanent control tower to Lewis University Airport. With few federal and state dollars available for such projects, Lipinski said there’s a less expensive alternative – a control tower that is operated

remotely. Lipinski said cameras and other equipment would be onsite, but the controllers would work off-site and serve multiple smaller airports. It’s new technology, he said, and is part of a pilot program in its first year at an airport in Leesburg, Virginia.

Lawson said he has some reservations about a remote tower and isn’t giving up the fight for a permanent one. The remote tower remains part of a pilot program, he said, so there’s no telling whether the FAA ultimately will sign off. The Joliet Regional Port District is conducting a site study to determine and justify the needs, Lawson said. He said he hopes to have the study completed within the next 90 days. Bill Parrot, who heads up the university’s air traffic control program, said the lack of a control tower poses safety concerns because the runways at Lewis intersect, he said. Pilots do not receive landing instructions from a central control tower at Lewis, but instead must communicate their intent to land via radio with other potential pilots entering the same controlled airspace. Lawson said the addition of a second runway in 2004 heightened the airport’s need for a control tower. State, federal and local officials have talked about it ever since, he said.

MLK Jr. wanted to visit prisoners in Joliet, not go to public speaking rally • STANLEY

Continued from page 7 said. “Through scientific and technological advancement we have made the world a neighborhood. Through our moral and ethical achieve-

ments we can make it a brotherhood.” King told the audience to, “Live as brothers or perish as fools.” The Rev. A.M. Varnado urged audience members to come down from the stands and “get a close-up look” at

King. “State, county and city police who were maintaining a tight security check were distressed by the invitation but relaxed their order against allowing spectators on the stadium field,” a story in The Herald-News noted.

Gibson said King told him he was disappointed he hadn’t addressed a different audience. “As he was leaving he said, ‘Gib, I want you to speak to the warden of the Joliet prison. I want to speak to the prisoners and spend a day or

two with them, not a public speaking rally,’ ” Gibson said. Three years later, an assassin’s bullet ended any chance of King making a return visit to Joliet. • Brian Stanley is a reporter for The Herald-News.

Airline soda can discrimination complaint Muslim chaplain Tahera Ahmad responds to a question during a news conference Wednesday in Chicago. A Shuttle America flight attendant “will no longer serve United customers” after an investigation into Ahmad’s complaint of discriminatory treatment during a flight last week, an airline spokesman said Wednesday. Ahmad said a flight attendant declined her request for an unopened can of Diet Coke because it could be used as a weapon. The flight was operated by Shuttle America for United. She was wearing the Muslim headscarf, known as the hijab, at the time. United previously issued a statement that described the incident as “a misunderstanding regarding a can of diet soda.”

Pot decriminalization decision in Illinois in Rauner’s hands

SPRINGFIELD – Signing a bill to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana would be, some legislators said, “low-hanging fruit” for Gov. Bruce Rauner, who is pushing for prison sentencing reform. The legislation passed the Illinois House and Senate last month with some Republican support, although 50 GOP lawmakers opposed it, which they said would increase the acceptance of the drug and send the wrong message to children. So far, the Republican governor has been mum on whether he will sign the bill, although spokeswoman Catherine Kelly has said Rauner “will carefully consider any legislation that crosses his desk.” Decriminalization advocates said signing the measure would send a signal that Rauner is serious about his goal of reducing the prison population by 25 percent in 10 years, although a task force study showed it may not cut the state’s incarceration rates. Vetoing it may appeal to Republican voters he needs to support his pro-business legislative agenda.


House to vote on changes to workers’ compensation

SPRINGFIELD – Democratic Speaker Michael Madigan said the Illinois House will consider changes to the state’s workers’ compensation insurance system when it reconvenes Thursday. Madigan said Wednesday that overhauling workers’ compensation is one of GOP Gov. Bruce Rauner’s top priorities. Madigan said considering the legislation shows lawmakers are

“willing to work with and compromise with Governor Rauner on any number of issues.” But Rauner spokesman Lance Trover said Madigan’s proposal ignores important changes Rauner wants and said Madigan is proposing more “phony reforms.” Madigan has previously called votes on legislation mirroring Rauner’s proposals. Democrats resoundingly defeated them, while Republicans called the votes “political theater.” Rauner wants less-costly workers’ compensation insurance, which he said would make Illinois more competitive. Madigan has said Rauner’s proposals would hurt working people.


$260 million winning Mega Millions ticket sold in Blue Island

BLUE ISLAND – The Illinois Lottery said a winning $260

million Mega Millions ticket purchased at a supermarket in the Chicago suburb of Blue Island. The lottery said Wednesday the ticket was a winner in Tuesday night’s drawing. The winner hasn’t come forward. The ticket was bought at Super Mercado Imelda and matched all six winning numbers: 2, 9, 11, 22, 23 and 12. The retailer will receive $500,000 for selling the winning ticket. Winners have a year from the drawing date to claim the prize.


University of Illinois president to shift funds to students

CHICAGO – The University of Illinois’ new president is expected to transfer $8.2 million of his discretionary money from administration to financial aid and other student programs as one of his first actions in the role. The move supports state-

ments Timothy Killeen has made about positioning himself as a student-focused president, the Chicago Tribune reported. He has said he’s committed to improving the student experience and directing money away from administrative costs. Killeen plans to dedicate his presidency to the university’s students, he said on the day his selection as president was announced in November. Killeen was expected to announce the transfer of funds Wednesday during a speech at the City Club of Chicago. He also plans to discuss the important role the university, which has a $5.6 million operating budget, plays in the state’s economy.


Police: Chicago bus driver cited, ran red light before crash

CHICAGO – Police said they’ve cited the driver of a Chicago

Transit Authority bus who they said ran a red light before a Michigan Avenue crash that left one person dead and at least eight others injured. Chicago police said early Wednesday that the 48-yearold driver was issued two traffic citations for the Tuesday crash downtown. One citation was for failing to stop at a red light, and the other was for “failure to exercise due care.” Authorities said the bus struck 51-year-old Aimee Coath of Flossmoor, who died after being taken to a nearby hospital. Another person was critically hurt. The driver suffered minor injuries. Police said the bus initially stopped at the red light but then went through it, striking the pedestrians and other vehicles.

NATION & WORLD BRIEFS FOIA backlog high despite were launched, and Sepp Blatter Obama transparency vow was re-elected as president,

WASHINGTON – Federal agencies are struggling to keep up with the growing number of requests for public information, raising questions in Congress about the Obama administration’s dedication to transparency. The backlog of unfulfilled requests for documents has doubled since President Barack Obama took office in 2009, according to a recent report by the Justice Department. The number of requests also has spiked. “The president has committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. “But that’s not the case” in filling requests under the Freedom of Information Act. Chaffetz cited examples of people waiting years for documents, only to have their requests denied. In other cases, federal agencies blacked out information that was public elsewhere. One document produced by the Federal Communications Commission blacked out a news release already publicly released, Chaffetz said.

only to stun everyone by saying he was quitting. On Wednesday, Blatter’s staff gave him a standing ovation. As ripples of the scandal reverberated from Europe to Africa to the Middle East, the embattled president showed up for work at FIFA’s gleaming headquarters in Zurich, where a FIFA spokeswoman said he met with staff and received their applause.

U.S.: Airstrikes killed 10K Islamic State fighters

BEIRUT – A U.S. official said Wednesday that more than 10,000 Islamic State fighters have been killed by American-led airstrikes in Iraq and Syria in nine months, offering a body count for a campaign that has yet to blunt their advance. Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken’s figure came after a Paris conference on how to stop the extremists ended without any new strategy to halt their campaign. It also comes months after the Pentagon dismissed such counts as “simply not a relevant figure” in the fight against the Islamic State group.

WASHINGTON – The surveillance law enacted this week stands as the most significant curb on the government’s investigative authorities since the 1970s. But it’s practically inconsequential in the universe of the National Security Agency’s vast digital spying operations, a technical overhaul of a marginal counterterrorism program that some NSA officials wanted to jettison anyway. After a six-month transition, the new law will end the NSA’s bulk collection of Americans’ phone records, moving instead to a system of case-by-case searches of records held by phone companies. The existence of the program, in place since shortly after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, was perhaps the most startling secret revealed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, because it so directly affected the privacy of Americans. It was the first Snowden disclosure published by the journalists with whom he shared documents, and it landed with a thunderclap. But in the two years since Snowden took up exile in Russia to avoid prosecution in the U.S., his documents have fueled dozens of revelations of NSA surveillance operations, disclosing how the agency seeks to exploit Internet communications. None of those programs are affected by the law President Barack Obama signed Tuesday night. “It’s being talked about like it’s the Declaration of Independence or something,” said Robert Deitz, a former NSA lawyer. “These adjustments are marginal.” Most of the Snowden disclosures have shed light on the NSA’s basic mission of gathering foreign “signals intelligence,” but the

And it also means the NSA “inadvertently” collects the content of a lot of American communications. Exactly how much is unknown and perhaps unknowable. But the government is allowed under certain circumstances to search that data, none of which was obtained with a specific, individual warrant. And Snowden has not been the only source of disclosures about government surveillance. This week, The Associated Press reported that the FBI has been flying spy planes over American cities. And in January, the Drug Enforcement Administration formally acknowledged that it maintained a sweeping database of phone calls made from the U.S. to foreign countries, a program it discontinued in 2013. It is unclear exactly how the information collected in those efforts has been used. Some members of Congress have expressed fierce opposition to the way the intelligence community currently handles the private

data it collects about Americans, especially the private information collected from U.S. technology companies under the PRISM program, also revealed by Snowden. “Under current law, the government can search the database on a fishing expedition and get those communications created under this program, including searching information about a U.S. citizen,” Rep. Ted Poe, a Texas Republican and former judge, said during a House Judiciary Committee hearing in April. “This can be done without a warrant. That seems to violate the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution to me.” But efforts to address that issue in this week’s USA Freedom Act went nowhere – because they had no chance of passing. Unlike the phone records program, the PRISM collection has proven instrumental in foiling terrorist plots, and lawmakers are loath to tinker with it. The Obama administration earlier this year tightened some rules on how data on Americans is handled, but rejected more rigorous procedures recommended by a presidential task force on surveillance.

It’s important that we focus on the positive news, too This time of year is filled with exciting change as our students move to the next grade or whatever comes next in life, whether that is college, employment, the military or some other adventure. At the same time, “the more things change, the more they stay the same,” as the old saying goes. In Springfield, our elected officials are – as of this writing – preparing for yet another struggle over the state budget. Meanwhile, local governments and service agencies remain in limbo, wondering yet again how this new/old battle will affect us at the local level. That’s why it’s so important to focus on the “positive” news about our students, staff and schools. Luckily for us, given what’s happening at the state level, there is always a lot of good news coming from District 202. In the past few weeks, we’ve shared stories about teachers who have won prestigious awards honoring their dedication and excellence; about students reaching the highest pinnacles of success in the classroom, on the stage and on the playing field; and about schools and families coming together to help people in our community who need a little extra support. It’s easy to forget or ignore this kind of news. After all, some people say, this is what the public school system is supposed to do. We are supposed to produce successful students and employ talented staff and be caring members of the community. True enough. Yet, the media is full of examples of just the opposite. Every day, there are more



GUEST VIEW Lane Abrell stories about people hurting others; of supposedly talented and dedicated professionals using their skills inappropriately; and communities failing to help their neediest members. That is why I am so proud of what we do in District 202 to give our students a well-rounded educational experience. They learn not only what is assessed by the standardized tests they must take, but also the “intangibles” of life, such as what it means to be a person of good character and a contributing member of society. It’s good to think about such things any time of the year. It reminds us as educators and parents of why we invest so much of our time, talent and resources in our children, but it’s especially good to reflect on these achievements now as we close the books on one year and prepare for the next. As school wraps up for another year I also would like to recognize and thank our retirees for their time and service to District 202 and the impact they have had upon the thousands of students they have taught and worked with throughout the years. With that in mind, thank you for a good 2014-15. Best wishes for a successful 201516. Have a restful and safe summer vacation. Together, we will continue to prepare learners for the future.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Bobcats not a nuisance, so ban hunting them

To the Editor: Bobcats don’t appear to be a nuisance, overpopulated and probably benefit the ecology by keeping rodents and other critters in check, such as the rabbits that eat my flowers or the rats that infest cities and farms – so ban bobcat hunting. Rather, we should encourage the predator species such as bobcat, coyote, hawk, owl, falcon and eagle to ensure habitat, nesting sites (bird houses) and insecticide control to prevent harmful accumulation in predator species and a robust ecosystem. The downside – little pets need to be watched more closely or kept inside and would benefit from a big-

Traffic solutions are needed in Lockport

To the Editor: The powers that be would like to revitalize Lockport and the surrounding area. We need a four-lane bridge across the Des Plaines Valley connecting Renwick Road and Thornton/159th Street. This would funnel truck traffic away from downtown. Could this be a toll bridge? Once the cost of construction of the bridge is paid off, the toll could be eliminated. At some time in the future, the Ninth Street Bridge would have to be shut down for rehabilitation. Traffic would have to go to Romeo Road

bridge in Romeoville or Ruby Street bridge in Joliet, essentially isolating Lockport. We need a two-lane bridge connecting East Division Street across the Des Plaines Valley to West Division Street. This would give access to the Lockport prairie from the east and a more direct route to Joliet. At the present time, there is no reasonable way for a person walking or riding a bike to go west from Lockport/ Fairmont. South Lockport and Fairmont are isolated, and building a bridge from Bruce Road to Caton Farm Road would open up that area. A bridge also would be needed from Theodore to Rosalind in the near future.

Plainfield C. survives H-F, advances By DICK GOSS dgoss@shawmedia.com JOLIET – The bad news was Plainfield Central was not its usual self. The much better news was the Wildcats survived Homewood-Flossmoor, 3-1, Wednesday in the semifinals of the Class 4A Joliet Central Sectional softball tournament. That means Central will face Lincoln-Way East in Saturday’s 11 a.m. sectional final. The Griffins finished fourth in the state last season. The Wildcats (29-4) entered the postseason as the No. 2 seed in the sectional behind only Lincoln-Way East. Homewood-Flossmoor (11-16) was the 14th seed. But for anyone who thought that spelled mismatch, Central coach Anne Campbell knew better. “They are a very good 14 seed,” Campbell said. “Their pitcher [left-hander Meagan Donermeyer] throws the ball well. We didn’t play our normal defense, either. We’re happy to get out of today.” Central had baserunners in every inning and stranded eight, including at least one in scoring position in each of the six inning the Wildcats batted. “We battled and played well enough to win,” Campbell said. “A lot of people overlooked them [Vikings], but we knew they could play.” Wildcats senior second baseman Hannah Franceschini never left a diamond with a dirtier uniform. She had two hits, scored twice and hit the dirt at least three times – on a steal of second, on a spectacular diving stop of a fourth-inning ground ball that she turned into an out, and sliding home with an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth. “The diving play,” Franceschini said when asked if the defensive gem or the two hits that ignited Central’s two scoring innings gave her the bigger thrill. “That was the first diving play I ever completed. “Defense is big for us. We know how we play defense. We usually get more key hits, too, but we were a little off today.

Plainfield Central’s Brooklyn Daly delivers a pitch Wednesday during the fifth inning of a Joliet Central Sectional semifinal against Homewood-Flossmoor. Daley finished with a four-hitter, struck out five walked one and hit a batter in Plainfield Central’s 3-1 win.

Plainfield Central’s Hannah Franceschini makes a diving stop Wednesday during the fourth inning. But we won. Whatever does it.” Central staked sophomore right-hander Brooklyn Daly to a 2-0 lead in the second. Franceschini blooped a single to right with one out, stole second and scored on Sammi Newtoff’s two-out single.

Leadoff hitter Michaela Schlattman, a four-year varsity regular who is anything but a typical softball leadoff hitter, then ripped a shot off the shortstop’s glove to knock in Newtoff for a 2-0 lead. “She’s our best hitter – she gets on base,” Campbell said of

why she has Schlattman in the leadoff spot. “She’s been there the last two years.” Homewood-Flossmoor scored once in the third inning and was threatening to get more, but a 1-4-2 double play – Daly to Franceschini covering first back to catcher Maria Connell – on a bunt ended the threat. The Vikings had opportunities in the fifth, when cleanup hitter Shelby Pauling hit a long flyout to left fielder Megan Muldoon with two on and two outs, and in the seventh, when back-to-back infield singles following third baseman Sammy Sabor’s diving catch of a low popup put the tying runs on base with two outs. Each time, however, Daly met the challenge. “It was kind of nerve-wracking,” Daly said. “But I knew my team would back me up.” Daly said her pitches – fastball, changeup, drop curve and screwball – all were work-

ing well. She finished with a four-hitter, struck out five walked one and hit a batter. “Brooklyn stayed in control even though we didn’t play our usual defense behind her,” Campbell said. Schlattman, Franceschini and Gretchen Egly had two hits each for Central. The Wildcats acknowledge the quality of their Saturday opponent, but you expect strong opponents at this juncture. “We like fast pitching, so we should be OK,” Franceschini said of the prospect of facing East’s Nikole Van Gennep. Central’s only sectional title came in 2012. The Wildcats reached the sectional final most recently in 2013, when they lost to eventual state champion Minooka. “Our girls believe in themselves,” Campbell said. “They have a lot of confidence. We have seven seniors, and that helps.”

BLOOMINGTON – After starting the season with an uncharacteristic 3-10 record, the Minooka baseball team rebounded in a big way. The Indians put up a much more Minooka-like 19-3 record in their past 22 games heading into Wednesday’s Class 4A Illinois Wesleyan University Sectional against Normal Community West at IWU’s Jack Horenberger Field. Included in the stretch was Monday’s 2-0 win over Plainfield South to win the title of the Joliet West Regional. Powered by a pair of home runs, including a grand slam, by senior first baseman Jon Vesper, the Indians defeated Normal West, 6-5, and advanced to Saturday’s 11 a.m. sectional championship against O’Fallon. Vesper – who already had slugged a pair of balls well over the fence but in foul territory – drove a solo homer to left in the top of the fourth inning to cut a 3-1 Normal West lead to 3-2. In the top of the fifth, with the bases loaded, Vesper was the first Indian to face new Normal West pitcher Owen Danielson. He greeted him with a grand slam that put Minooka ahead, 6-5. “After I hit those first two foul balls, I was just trying to put the ball in play to right field,” Vesper said. “The second home run, I thought was just going to be a double, to be honest. I was digging hard for two, and then coach [Jim] Lamping started screaming, so I knew it went out. “Early in the year, we were playing a lot of individual baseball. As the year’s gone on, we are playing more as a team, and that’s been the difference.” Minooka scored first in the top of the third. With two outs, Jake Null was hit by a pitch, and Georgetown-bound Cristian Sanchez tripled to left-center to bring him home. Normal West countered with three runs in the bottom of the third before Vesper hit his first homer in the top of the fourth. Normal West then put across a pair of unearned runs in the

Minooka’s Cristian Sanchez gets ready to hit an RBI triple in the Indians’ 6-5 win Wednesday over Normal West in a Class 4A Illinois Wesleyan Sectional semifinal in Bloomington. Sanchez went 3 for 4. bottom half to take a 5-2 lead into the fifth. With one out, Sanchez singled, as did Nick Petrak and then Tyler Paulsen, loading the bases and bringing in Danielson. Vesper then slammed the Indians into the lead with his sixth homer of the year. “Jon has been hitting the ball hard all year,” Minooka coach Jeff Petrovic said. “He probably has more hard outs than anyone on the team. He just kept hitting the ball hard today, and they went out. But, he wasn’t the only one. We really hit the ball hard all day, up and down the lineup. “And Miguel Ruiz did a nice job on the mound. He didn’t feel his best today, but he battled. We gave them a couple of runs, so he actually did a better job than the score says.” In the bottom of the sixth, Ruiz hit the leadoff batter, and Petrovic summoned Joe Butler in relief. Normal West got runners to second and third, but Butler struck out the last batter of the inning to escape with no runs scored. He then struck out the side in the bottom of the seventh to secure the win.

“When Vesper hit that grand slam, that was as loud as I have heard our dugout all year.” Jeff Petrovic Minooka baseball coach “Joe hasn’t pitched that much for us this year,” Petrovic said. “What he did speaks to his athleticism and his competitive nature. He’s just a tough kid. “This was an exciting game. When Vesper hit that grand slam, that was as loud as I have heard our dugout all year. We are playing well at the right time of the year. Normal West is always a good team, and you have to beat them. They are very fundamentally sound, and they are not going to beat themselves. “I have to hand it to our kids. We had a tough stretch early on, but it’s been a different attitude since then, and it’s contagious. We are playing as Minooka’s Jon Vesper (left) and Tyler Paulsen celebrate after Vesper’s solo home run in the fourth inning Wednesday. a team.”

Positive storylines developing in minor leagues Minor league results involving players from the Joliet area are producing a mixed bag of results at this juncture of the season. On the positive side, outfielder John Ruettiger (Joliet Catholic) has heated up with Baltimore’s affiliate at Frederick in the A-Advanced Carolina League. He entered Wednesday’s action with 10 hits in his last 25 at-bats, a .400 clip, to raise his average to .254. He also has eight stolen bases in 10 attempts. First baseman Sam Travis (Providence) is continuing a good season with A-Advanced Salem in the Boston organization. The 3-hole hitter, he is at .282 with 11 doubles, three triple, two homers and 28 RBIs. Shortstop Dean Anna (Lincoln-Way East), who was with the parent Cardinals briefly

early in the season, suffered through a slump when he returned to Triple-A Memphis but has turned it back around of late. His average is back up to .242 with seven doubles, a triple and 11 RBIs. Also on the plus side, Zach Petrick (Morris) had gone through a string of six starts with the Cardinals’ Triple-A team at Memphis, where he pitched 37 innings and allowed eight earned runs, a 1.95 ERA over that span. That lowered his ERA to 4.12 for the season with 55 hits and 10 walks allowed to go with 40 strikeouts in 542⁄3 innings. In Wednesday night’s start against Las Vegas, he had allowed three runs, two earned, through five innings, which at that point dropped his ERA to 4.07. Another pitcher doing well is Steve Sabatino (Lockport)


VIEWS Dick Goss for St. Louis’ A-Advanced affiliate at Palm Beach in the Florida State League. He is 1-0 with a 1.83 ERA and one save. In 16 appearances, he has pitched 192⁄3 innings and allowed 18 hits and eight walks while striking out 15. Outfielder Joe Benson (JCA) is hitting .231 (25 for 108) for Gwinnett, Atlanta’s Triple-A affiliate. He has no home runs and nine RBIs as one of four outfielders who have been seeing playing time. Pitcher Tony Bucciferro (Minooka) has fallen on hard times of late for the White Sox’s A-Advanced team at Winston-Salem. He is 1-5 with

a 6.10 ERA In 10 games, nine of them starts, he has allowed 78 hits in 512⁄3 innings. Pitcher Matt Borens (Peotone) has made one start with the Yankees’ A-Advanced team at Tampa and yielded four runs, three earned, on six hits and two walks while striking out three in 42⁄3 innings. While we’re on the subject, just wondering how much our pool of local talent in the minor leagues will grow when the annual free-agent draft begins Monday. An apparent certainty is that University of Illinois left-handed pitcher Tyler Jay (Lemont) will be a high selection, probably somewhere in the top 10 in the country. Through the years, this area has had Bill Gullickson picked second behind Harold Baines; and a few years later, Mark

Grant was the No. 10 overall selection. Kevin Duchene (JCA), the ace of the Illini’s starting rotation entering this weekend’s super regional against Vanderbilt in Champaign, probably will be drafted but not nearly as high as Jay, who has been clocked in the 96-97 mph range this season. Several years ago, Mike Foltynewicz (Minooka) went No. 19 overall. Foltynewicz, who is 3-2 with a 4.28 ERA with Atlanta, was in line to pick up his fourth victory Wednesday afternoon, but the Braves’ bullpen was unable to hold off the Arizona Diamondbacks, who wound up winning, 9-8. Foltynewicz allowed five runs, four earned, on eight hits in 52⁄3 innings.

Tampa. Ben Bishop stopped 19 shots and Alex Killorn scored in the opening minutes for Tampa Bay, which appeared to be closing in on a gritty shutout victory. Until Teravainen’s goal through a two-man screen, the youthful Lightning gave a stellar defensive effort against the Hawks’ high-powered offense in front of a frenzied home crowd. The 6-foot-7 Bishop was a few minutes away from his third shutout in four games, including a tenacious 2-0 victory over the New York Rangers to win the Eastern Conference ti-

tle last Friday night. But the Hawks’ steady work in Tampa Bay’s zone finally was rewarded in dramatic fashion. Shortly after Crawford stopped Ryan Callahan on a breakaway, Marcus Kruger and Valtteri Filppula provided screens in front of Bishop, who never saw Teravainen’s shot for his third goal of the postseason. Moments later, Vermette collected a bouncing puck in the slot and beat Bishop for his third goal, providing a big return on the Hawks’ decision to acquire him at the trade dead-

line. The winner of Game 1 has won the Cup in 58 of the last 75 Finals since 1939, including the last three. The Hawks roared into its third Final in six years and 13th overall after outlasting Anaheim in a memorable seven-game conference final. A roster loaded with championship-winning players and veteran talent made the Blackhawks most observers’ favorite in the series despite questions about a defense relying heavily on just four players, including tireless star Duncan Keith. Tampa Bay needed 20 games

Hawks at Lightning, 6:15 p.m. Saturday, NBC, AM-720 to win its second Eastern Conference championship, but emerged from a Game 7 victory over the Rangers at Madison Square Garden with a wealth of confidence in its youthful, gifted lineup. After a stirring pregame celebration of the Lightning’s return to the Final 11 year after winning their only title, they opened the Final with a noticeable jump on the Blackhawks – and Killorn needed just 4:31 to get the Lightning on top. With his back to the net, the Harvard product made an exceptional backhand redirect of Anton Stralman’s shot, swatting down at a wobbling puck and knocking it past Crawford’s pad for his eighth goal of the postseason. Captain Steven Stamkos said Tuesday that the playoffs have been Killorn’s “coming-out party” as an elite forward. The Hawks increased their intensity later in the period when Kane moved back onto a line with Toews, reuniting Chicago’s two best scorers.


Slammers rally from big deficit to beat Greys By CURTIS HERRON cherron@shawmedia.com JOLIET – At regular intervals, the scoreboard in left field at Silver Cross Field showed live action from the Blackhawks’ first game in the Stanley Cup Final against Tampa Bay. While those occasional views really weren’t all that entertaining, they beat much of what the Joliet Slammers crowd saw on the field through the first part of their team’s Frontier League game with the Frontier Greys.

But just as the Hawks stormed back to grab a late lead in their game, the Slammers thrilled their fans with a similar comeback. After spotting the Greys a 7-0 lead through 5½ innings, the Slammers came to life by scoring four times in the sixth and five more times in the seventh inning. Joliet halted its six-game losing streak by holding on for a 9-8 victory. In the third, the Greys’ Shane Brown smacked his first home run of the year over the left field fence; and then after Julio Rodriguez followed

with a single, Zach Tanner blasted another shot over the same area of the outfield fence to put the visitors in control. In the sixth, the Greys scored four times to grab a 7-0 advantage. Starter Travis Bradshaw exited with one out and runners and third. Reliever Jacob Butler slipped on a ball hit to him to allow the fourth run to score. Brandon Tierney doubled to make it 5-0, and then another run scored when a throw home didn’t beat the runner. The Greys made it 7-0 on Sam Montgomery’s single up the

middle. That’s when the Slammers got going offensively, responding with four runs in their half of the sixth. Russell Moldenhauer (2 for 4) doubled in the first run and Hunter Ridge (3 for 4) singled home another. After starter Bobby Shore was relieved, Adam Giacalone singled to make it a 7-3 game, and Max Casper drew a bases-loaded walk to bring home another run. An inning later, Joliet kept rolling as Moldenhauer singled in one run, then Phil Bates (3 for 4) tied the score with a

two-run single. Giacalone’s infield out gave the hosts an 8-7 lead and Jack Cleary singled to make it a 9-7 game. The Greys got a run back in the eighth inning but the potential tying run was thrown out on a close play at the plate. Joliet outhit the Greys 14-11 but hurt its cause by committing five errors. Alfredo Rodriguez also went 2 for 4 for the Slammers. Sam Moore pitched 11⁄3 innings and didn’t allow a hit, and Navery Moore pitched the ninth and also didn’t yield a hit.

TAMPA, Fla. – After 53 minutes of scoreless frustration, the Blackhawks needed less than two minutes more to roar back on top in the Stanley Cup Final opener. Teuvo Teravainen and Antoine Vermette scored 1:58 apart late in the third period, and the Hawks rallied to stun the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 on Wednesday night. Corey Crawford made 22 saves for the Hawks, who opened the final series in their quest for their third NHL title in six seasons with more of the clutch offensive play on which they’ve built a championship team. “You just learn not to panic and keep working hard,” Crawford said. “Stick to your game plan, and we’ll get our chances.” Nothing worked for Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane – but with their two stars off the ice and the clock dwindling, the Hawks’ role players delivered to crush the Amalie Arena crowd celebrating Tampa Bay’s first trip to the Final since winning the 2004 title. Teravainen scored through traffic with 6:32 to play, and Vermette got the winner in the slot with 4:34 left. Game 2 is Saturday night in

American Pharoah early Belmont pick NEW YORK – Bob Baffert and the rest of the group in charge of American Pharoah could smile and laugh Wednesday after the Triple Crown hopeful landed in the No. 5 post position for the Belmont Stakes. American Pharoah was made the early 3-5 favorite to win the Belmont and become horse racing’s 12th Triple Crown winner and first in 37 years. His post was the second one revealed during the outdoor draw at Rockefeller Center, leaving little waiting time for Baffert & Co. With an eighthorse field set to run a grueling 1½ miles Saturday, post position matters little, unlike in the 20-horse Kentucky Derby. Fourteen horses have won from the No. 5 post, including 1977 Triple Crown champion Seattle Slew. “I’ve always liked the five. It’s a number I always do well with,” Baffert said. “More important is the horse is doing well.” The colt took his first steps on the dirt at Belmont Park earlier in the day, jogging counterclockwise a day after arriving in New York. “He went the wrong way, so he really didn’t learn a lot,” said Baffert, who is taking his fourth shot at one of the sporting world’s toughest feats. Owner Ahmed Zayat bubbled over with his usual enthusiasm. “I’m confident in the ability of American Pharoah because the horse is giving me that confidence. I’m not arrogant about it,” he said. “The horse looks very healthy and happy. We’re going in with no excuses.” Jockey Victor Espinoza will be taking his record third shot at winning the Triple Crown, having lost last year when California Chrome finished fourth in the Belmont. “I’m feeling lucky this year,” he said. “Third time is a charm.”


Abreu homers, Sale cruises, Sox top Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas – Jose Abreu homered in a six-run second after missing three games with an injured finger, Chris Sale struck out a season-high 13 in seven shutout innings, and the White Sox beat the Texas Rangers, 9-2, on Wednesday night. Tyler Flowers added three hits, including a home run, as the Sox bounced back from a 15-2 loss in the series opener. Sale (5-2) retired the final 14 hitters he faced and struck out Joey Gallo three times before Texas’ top prospect homered again a night after his record-setting debut. Nick Martinez (4-2) allowed nine hits and seven earned runs in 31⁄3 innings – his shortest outing of the season – as the Rangers’ four-game winning streak ended. Abreu, who was the designated hitter to give the swollen right index finger on the first baseman’s throwing hand more time to heal, added a run-scoring single in the fourth inning before getting pulled for a pinch hitter in the eighth.

Sale, who has at least 10 strikeouts in four of his last five starts, gave up three hits and two walks in seven innings.

Benches clear before Marlins beat Cubs

MIAMI – A bench-clearing confrontation led by injured Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez and Cubs outfielder Junior Lake ended in a standoff. The game went to Miami. Giancarlo Stanton and Jeff Baker hit back-to-back homers for the second time in five days, and the Marlins showed lots of life after two months of often desultory play, beating the Cubs, 7-3, Wednesday night. The Marlins won their second series in a row after a stretch in which they lost 11 of 13 games and fired manager Mike Redmond. Stanton, the major league leader in RBIs, hit his 17th home run off Jon Lester, and Baker followed with his second for a 6-0 lead in the fifth. The pair also combined for consecutive homers last Saturday at Citi Field in a win over the New York Mets.

A pastor for the people

Retiring Crest Hill priest sees the humanity in everyone he has served If you go

By DENISE M. BARAN–UNLAND dunland@shawmedia.com CREST HILL – The Rev. John Doyle, pastor of St. Ambrose and St. Anne Catholic Churches in Crest Hill, is a people person who will be missed dearly. So said Lynn Siefert, who said she does various work for both churches. Siefert said Doyle never says no, is supportive of people at both parishes, and is kindhearted and generous. Siefert is happy to see Doyle’s retirement Mass will include music by Joliet’s Polka Mass-sters, since St. Anne was the first church to host the band more than 20 years ago. “You come out [of Mass] with such a great feeling,” Siefert said. Doyle said it was really the St. Anne parishioners who effected the first Polka Masssters appearance at St. Anne. “The people kept pestering me,” Doyle said. “They said, ‘We have to have them, Father.’ I didn’t think it was such a great idea, but so many people asked for it that I thought, ‘Well, we’d better have it.’ And it was very reverent, very nice.” Although Doyle is retiring from parish work, he is not planning to retire from ministry. Before he can say Mass and hear confessions, he wants to improve his speech and become steadier on his feet, he added. “My hope is to become a bishop when I retire,” Doyle said with a chuckle.

Recent health challenges

In 2011, Doyle began having trouble walking. Tests showed a nonmalignant spot on his brain. By 2015, the tumor had grown and was touching the area of the brain that controlled his senses. “I lost my speech,” Doyle

He then spent a month at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago before going to Our Lady of Angels retirement community in Joliet to recover. He soon will move into The Inn at Willow Falls in Crest Hill and is easing back into life. For instance, Doyle said he recently attended a performance at the Paramount Theatre in Aurora. “I saw ‘Peter Pan,’ and it was absolutely delightful,” Doyle said.

Early influences

Doyle said he always wanted to become a priest. He grew up on Chicago’s South Side in an era when one priest a year was ordained, at least three nuns served every parish, and Catholic schools had enroll-

He entered seminary at the same time he entered high school and said he was “kicked out” in his early 20s because he couldn’t master Latin. But Romeo Blanchette,

Several master gardeners were on hand to help supervise the students with the planting process. After planting, the students watered and put mulch around the plants. The students were able to enjoy their lunch in the park while watching some barges go through the Illinois River channel. They are looking forward to visiting the park later to check on the growth of their butterfly garden.

Plainfield couldn’t pass up the challenge. Faculty and staff came up with #CollaborateSMI – an idea that says the curriculum must drive the technology. Everyone at the school worked together to come up with a program that works. Under contest rules, St. Mary created a 90-second video. The winner was determined by how many shares it got on Facebook.

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

The same play with the nine or 10


Colin Mochrie, a Canadian who is one of the stars in the funny improvisational show “Whose Line is it Anyway?” said, “Nine out of 10 Americans believe that out of 10 people, one person will always disagree with the other nine.” In today’s deal, how should South play in six spades after West leads the heart queen? What would declarer do if his club 10 were the club nine? In the auction, there is no need for South to gallop skyward; his two-spade rebid is forcing. North’s jump to four spades promises at least four-card support, but requires no points and denies a first- or second-round control (no ace, void, king or singleton). Then, South’s final bid is a gamble, but who would do less? The simple line is to take two club finesses, a line with a 76 percent probability of success. Declarer has two dummy entries with the spade nine and a heart ruff. However, it is better to have a 100 percent line available. South wins with his heart ace, draws trumps, cashes his top diamonds and heart king, and ruffs his last heart in the dummy. Then declarer plays a club to his 10 (or queen). Here, West wins with his jack (or king), but what does he do next? West is endplayed. If he returns a club, it is into South’s tenace. Or, if West leads a heart or a diamond, declarer ruffs in the dummy and discards a club from his hand. Finally, note that the same play works with the club nine instead of the 10. South covers East’s first club as cheaply as possible.

towel. • Wash dentures daily with denture cleanser, hand soap or mild dish liquid. Avoid abrasive cleaners. This is really important. If dentures are not washed daily, they can become infected, usually with fungus and bacteria. When their surfaces are infected, and you wear the dentures, they can pass the infection to the lining of your mouth. I once had a patient whose dentures had made the roof of his mouth (his palate) so red, raw and sore that he needed to be hospitalized and given intravenous antibiotic treatments. • Clean denture surfaces by scrubbing thoroughly with a special denture brush or a hard toothbrush. • After the adjustment phase, take your dentures out when you sleep to relieve pressure on your gums. • When your dentures aren’t in your mouth, soak them in a denture cleaning solution or water. Don’t let them dry out. • Brush your mouth – including your gums, palate and tongue – with a soft-bristled toothbrush every morning before you insert your dentures. • Minor irritation and soreness should fade as you get used to your dentures. Call your dentist if discomfort persists, or if you notice staining, bad odor, color changes or tartar deposits on them. • Don’t try to adjust or repair your dentures on your own.

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff


Dear Dr. K: My dentist says it’s time for dentures. What should I know before I get them? Dear Reader: Nearly half of Americans ages 65 and older have lost six or more teeth because of decay or gum disease. Tooth loss can profoundly affect your health and well-being. The more teeth a person loses, the more difficult it is to chew food properly and get needed nutrients. Missing teeth also can make speaking difficult and make you self-conscious about your appearance. (On my website, www.askdoctork. com, I’ve put an illustration of our teeth and their functions.) Nothing can fully take the place of healthy, natural teeth, but several replacement options are available. One such replacement is dentures. Partial dentures are an option if you need to replace several teeth in a row. Full dentures tend to be used in older individuals who have lost many of their teeth. Full dentures last five to 10 years. Their fit changes over time as the shape of the jawbone changes. If your dentures are uncomfortable, let your dentist know. He or she can make adjustments and repairs in between replacements. If the chewing surfaces become worn, your dentist can attach new teeth to the existing base. Take proper care of your dentures to keep them looking good and fitting well. The following tips will help: • Wash dentures in cold or warm – not hot – water. • Try not to drop dentures on a hard surface, as they break easily. Handle them over a basin of water or a soft

Having a sympathetic ally will give strength to those who are struggling.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Take your mind off current troubles by engaging in family time. Attending a sporting event or visiting a craft fair or carnival will help lift your spirits and strengthen your relationships. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Harmony at home will depend on the way you react to challenging circumstances. Relationships will be difficult. Pursuing a hobby you can work on alone will help you avoid a dispute. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – If you feel lethargic, get some fresh air. Moderate exercise is a great way to stimulate and motivate you. Moping around the house will lead to stagnation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Take an objective look at a deal or collaboration. Don’t take on additional financial obligations, but offer hands-on help. You don’t know what you can accomplish until you try. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Before you make a move or leave your

current position, consider the pros and cons. Other people’s experiences will not be a true reflection of how matters will pan out for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Too many choices will confuse you. Before you sign on for a new project, ask a trusted friend for advice. His or her perspective will help you make an informed decision. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Take pride in the way you live. Make your home comfortable and convenient if you want to improve family dynamics. Host a get-together where you can showcase your efforts. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – If you waste your time fighting with an unreasonable individual, you won’t have the energy to pursue enjoyable activities. Keep your thoughts to yourself and avoid discord. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – You will be surprised to hear about or from a past partner. Before you decide to reunite, remember why and how you parted ways.

Dear Abby: I’m having a hard time letting my almost 17-year-old daughter out of my sight. When she walks home from school, I call to make sure she’s OK, then call her again minutes later when I estimate she’s home. The whole time I worry. I check on her wherever she is, whomever she is with, and if she doesn’t answer a call or text, I panic. I have on a few occasions raced home from work in the middle of the day only to find her napping, and I’m upset to the point I’ll start crying. I realize this isn’t healthy for either of us. Years ago, a little girl in our town, the same age as my daughter, was taken from her home and murdered. I think that plays a part in why I act so irrational. Some of her friends will be driving this summer and I can only imagine there will be trips to the beach (three nightmares in one) and whatever else. I guess I just want to know how to come to grips. – Frantic Mom Of


Pearls Before Swine

A Teen In Florida Dear Frantic: While your

fears are based on a real incident, your daughter is no longer a little girl. You can’t protect her forever, and as a teenager, she needs to establish some independence. You would be doing both of you a favor to talk to a licensed mental health counselor about this now, because your fears are excessive. Dear Abby: I’ve reached the point in my life I can no longer hide fine lines and crow’s feet. It is bothering me greatly. How do other women handle it, especially when deep lines form? I’ve talked to others my age and it doesn’t bother them. I want to talk to elderly people and ask them, but I don’t know how to politely broach the subject. I feel guilty for being vain and I hate that, but it’s hard for me to accept. Please help. –

Hating Aging In Eau Claire Dear Hating Aging: I don’t think anyone, male or female, relishes the idea of

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips being old – particularly in American society – unless they consider the alternative, which is death. Men and women handle signs of aging in different ways. Fortunes have been spent on beauty products, with varying degrees of success, although hope-in-a-jar springs eternal. Board-certified dermatologists and plastic surgeons can minimize the signs of aging with fillers, Botox, lasers and surgery, but they can be expensive. Others accept beauty comes from within and opt to do nothing to change their appearance. Talking to people in their 70s, 80s or 90s about the changes they have experienced and the lessons they have learned as they grew older is a good idea. I’m sure you’ll receive some enlightening input. But if it doesn’t change your feelings, talk to a doctor because a good one can work miracles. Dear Abby: I live in Miami and my mother-in-law lives in Ohio. My husband just told me she is planning to move here and live with us. I don’t mind her moving in with us because she is my mother-in-law, but her boyfriend of 15 years also is coming down. Her boyfriend’s brother is moving to West Palm Beach. (It’s the reason why they are moving.) Does it make me sound petty to say I don’t want the boyfriend to move in with us? – Mother-In-Law

Dilemma Dear Dilemma: Petty? I

don’t think so. You are not running a boardinghouse. The boyfriend is no relation to you, and if you prefer not to have a stranger living under your roof, that should be your choice.
