June 6, 1944, was breakthrough day in World War II Editor’s note: Longtime Herald-News columnist John Whiteside wrote about many local residents who fought at D-Day, even as their ranks dwindled. His column from June 6, 2004, the 60th anniversary of D-Day, included interviews with many of those men who have since passed on. To honor those men, and with his family’s permission, we’re reprinting Whiteside’s column in Friday’s edition.

This June 6, 1944, file photo shows American soldiers of the Allied Expeditionary Force securing a beachhead during initial landing operations at Normandy, France. From the first sketchy German radio broadcast to the distribution of images filmed in color, it has taken decades for the full story of the D-Day invasion to come out. As world leaders and veterans prepare to mark the 70th anniversary of the invasion this week, multiple Twitter hashtags are following the ceremonies minute by minute. At the time, the reporting, filming and taking of photos was neither easy nor straightforward.

MARKING THE PAST Veterans, historians look back at D-Day By BILL WIMBISCUS


OLIET – Today marks the 70th anniversary of what General Dwight D. Eisenhower called the “great crusade” – D-Day, the Sixth of June. Most of those who fought in the Normandy invasion are gone now, men like Frank Perconte, of Joliet, whose exploits were told in “Band of Brothers,” Joe Kendziora of Lockport, who landed on Omaha Beach, and George Kozak, of Lockport, who parachuted with the 82nd Airborne near St. Mere Eglise. Longtime Herald-News columnist John Whiteside wrote about many of these men on past D-Day anniversaries, even as their ranks dwindled. With

his family’s permission, we’ve included his column from June 6, 2004, on the 60th anniversary of the battle, in Friday’s edition. Yet a few of the old D-Day veterans still remain, along with their comrades from the other campaigns and other theaters of World War II. Bill Finn, of Dwight, forJoe Belman merly of Coal City, was a paratrooper with the 101st Airborne. He landed in a French field in a glider, was captured by the Germans and spent the rest of the war as a POW. Finn said that anniversaries like D-Day are important because people need to remember and learn from history

so that similar events can’t happen again. “I want people to remember what we went through for freedom,” Finn said. Finn recently spoke to a young man about his service. He was surprised to learn that the boy didn’t know much about World War II, or even what a glider was. “It’s been so long ago that some people are forgetting,” Finn said. Joe Belman’s memories of D-Day are somewhat limited. The Lockport native was aboard a ship in the middle of the Atlantic en route to England with the rest of the crew of “What’s Shakin’ Doc?,” his Bugs Bunny-emblazoned Boeing B-17 bomber.

“You are about to embark upon a great crusade. The eyes of the world are upon you, and the hopes and prayers of all liberty loving people go with you ... We will accept nothing less than full victory ...” – Gen. Dwight Eisenhower’s message to the D-Day troops. For most of them, they were really just kids in their teens and early 20s. And this was their first combat there on the beaches at Normandy, France. But they were men, too, called upon to become a part of history known as D-Day. It happened on Tuesday, June 6, 1944. The combat – a pivotal point of World War II – began during the early morning hours when 18,000 paratroopers, including 13,000 Americans, were dropped behind the beaches from troop-carrying airplanes. They were dropped into the dark sky at about 1:30 a.m., and most missed their landing zones. They were scattered all over. At 6 a.m., 170,000 American, British, Canadian and French troops began moving from 5,000 ships and started landing on 60 miles of beaches at Normandy. Code-named Gold, Juno, Sword, Utah and Omaha beaches, the invasion had started. The bloodiest battle was there at Omaha Beach. Bloody Omaha, as it became known. And one of the first men there on Omaha Beach was

VIEWS John Whiteside Henry Klett, now 87. He was among the men of the 5th Ranger Battalion. At age 27, the men called him “Pop.” He was the ranking sergeant in the platoon. The platoon’s landing craft was British. The driver didn’t get them in close enough, and when the lieutenant hit the water, he sunk below his head. The driver didn’t want to take the craft in closer. “But someone stuck a gun in his ribs, and he got closer,” Klett said. He jumped off in waist-deep water with machine-gun bullets flying all around him. With the lieutenant being killed in the water, Klett took command of the platoon. For about an hour, the men were blocked by a high wall along the beach. While Rangers from the 2nd Ranger Battalion climbed the high cliff at Pointe du Hoc, the other Rangers were assigned to going through the wall and up a hill behind the cliff. Using long, stick-like explosive devices, Klett’s platoon blasted a hole in the wall and got on the other side. Enemy machine guns continued to fire at them. The hill they were to take had signs showing it had been mined. But they found paths through the mines and made it up the hill. They ran into hedgerows where they jumped into German foxholes just as the enemy started a counterattack. Klett organized a defense of the hill and was later awarded a Silver Star for what he did. Now living in Rosewood Nursing Home in Joliet, the old soldier said it doesn’t seem like 60 years ago. He remembers it like it was yesterday.

Job fair aims to boost employment locally More than 50 employees attend Thursday’s event at Joliet Junior College By FELIX SARVER JOLIET – John Lindsey was on the hunt Thursday for a warehouse job where he could continue his roughly 38year career working in distribution centers. The Joliet resident was one of dozens who attended a job fair at Joliet Junior College, hosted by the Illinois Department of Employment Security and U.S. Rep. Bill Foster, D-Naperville. The job fair is part of Foster’s Project Growth initiative to boost jobs and economic development in Chicago-area counties. “They got a lot of opportunities in here and I’m trying to get every last one,” Lindsey said. “Sooner or later somebody is going to call.” Lindsey, 54, is a former U.S. Marine, so he was given a preview of the fair an hour before it opened to the public. Foster said veterans were provided that opportunity because unemployment among veterans is a concerning issue. “The best thing we can do to make someone feel good about their lives is to get them a solid job,” he said. Foster said part of boosting employment in the county

Kevin Curley (center) of Lockport speaks with representatives Jamie Regan (left) and Tom Mineo (right) of Con-Way Freight at the Joliet Junior College job fair Thursday afternoon. “It’s great that they put this together here,” Curely said. “I had a couple bites out of it. So we’ll see what happens.” See more photos from this event at was to match people with specific skills with the employers who need them. After meeting with economic development experts in Will County, Foster said the economic situation

locally and in surrounding areas was looking good. “It appears to be getting better,” he said. “You’re seeing for the first time in six years housing construction

really re-starting. … We’re seeing a lot of new businesses announce their intention to move in and that’s going to translate to jobs.” More than 50 employers –

ranging from retail to industrial to entertainment and transportation – set up booths in JJC’s cafeteria. One of those businesses was A.S.G. Staffing, Inc., which works with companies to fill general labor positions. “We’ve had quite a lot of openings so we need to get the right people in there,” said Denise Hernandez, officer manager for the Bolingbrook branch. Another was IKEA, which has stores in Bolingbrook and Schaumburg. Mini Hundal, human resource manager for the Bolingbrook location, said the company was looking to fill restaurant, customer service and delivery positions. “We thought this [job fair] would be a great opportunity in a local community,” Hundal said. Al Trevino, 60, of Plainfield, attended to look for work in maintenance. Trevino, also a JJC student, said he was laid off in January from a position for a company that moved out of state. Now he finds himself needing to freshen up his skill set for the current job market. “I got to review and relearn things, hopefully before I retire,” he said.

Request for voice expert in draws concern from state’s attorney’s office BY BRIAN STANLEY JOLIET – Defense lawyers want a voice expert to testify via video conference before a man goes to trial on murder charges. Jordan A. Arthur, 25, is accused of gunning down Courtney L. Jordan, 34, in a Hickory Street parking lot June 1, 2011. Jordan was on the phone with 911 when he was shot and it’s alleged Arthur can be heard on the re-

cording. Defense attorney Greg DeBord said there is no Illinois case law dealing with voice experts, so prosecutors have requested a hearing to see if the type of evidence the defense wants to use at trial is accepted by the scientific community. Defense attorney Kylie Hannan told Judge Sarah Jones on Thursday that Harry Hollien pioneered the voice analysis methods they would use and the prosecu-

tion would likely try to refute during a trial. “But while Doctor Hollien is in excellent mental health. He is 88 years old and his physical health prohibits him from traveling from Florida to appear in a courtroom here,” Hannan said. Hannan told Jones courthouse IT personnel would be able to connect with Hollien using wireless video – such as Skype or FaceTime – and have him projected on a screen in the courtroom. An-

other voice expert trained in Hollien’s methods would likely appear in person during the trial if the testimony is allowed. Assistant Will County State’s Attorney Colleen Griffin worried allowing video testimony would set a precedent for other cases – limiting prosecutors’ ability to cross-examine witnesses and denying defendants their Constitutional rights to confront them. “When remote testimony

has been allowed, it’s been during trial for a [direct] witness or victim who can’t be replaced. There’s been no showing this particular witness can’t be replaced,” Griffin said. Jones asked where granting video testimony would prejudice the case, since the documents Hollien might use could be faxed and he would be under oath, but said she will issue a decision June 11 whether or not it will be allowed.

6 Coal City native was POW, eventually liberated by Russian troops • WHITESIDE Continued from page 3 “Time has gone fast,” he said. “It’s amazing that I made it through that day. A lot of men didn’t.” He said he prayed off and on throughout the day, especially on the landing boat. “Yes, I was scared, but I was busy, too,” he said.

Fear sets in Joe Kendziora of Lockport was there on Omaha Beach. He was just 19 years old as he looked around at all the dead bodies and bloody remains of fellow soldiers. “We were young kids and didn’t know enough to be scared in the beginning,” the 79-yearold Kendziora said. “But it became a very scary day.” His unit was stuck there on the beach for several hours. It took most of the day before they were able to get up over the high walls and cliffs where the Germans were firing machine guns. Looking back six decades later, he was asked about his most outstanding memory of that battle on Omaha Beach. “That I made it through alive,” he replied.

Prisoner of war Meanwhile, various units of the 82nd and 101st Airborne divisions had gathered in small units and were fighting behind the beaches. But Bill Finn of Coal City was already out of the battle. The 101st Airborne paratrooper had landed in a glider that

Before the troopers could get out, the glider was riddled by enemy bullets. Finn’s best buddy, Danny Miller, who was sitting next to him, was hit in the face. “The war is finished for you,” a German soldier said to the men. They were part of a communications unit assigned to string wire from division headquarters to various regiments. But they quickly became prisoners of war, then listed as missing in action. Finn remained a POW for the rest of World War II. His prison camp was eventually liberated by Russian troops.

Into the darkness Frank Perconte of Joliet jumped out of an airplane at about 500 feet at 1:20 a.m. that day. Just a few minutes before his jump, the plane was hit by a big piece of flak, which

had torn through the side and seriously wounded a 101st paratrooper near him. Perconte was just glad to jump into the darkness and avoid all that flak that was hitting the planes. The ride down in a parachute was less than 45 seconds, he said. But the planes were going too fast and scattered the jumpers. Loaded down with weapons, grenades and other equipment, he landed in a field near some hedge rows. He pulled out his boot knife and started slashing away at the parachute harness. He could see no one around him. But several times he stopped cutting and pointed his .45 semiautomatic pistol into the darkness. His M-1 rifle was still in a case and needed to be put together. The first thing he saw was horses running through the field. Then he was joined by other paratroopers, who eventually were hooked up with

a lieutenant whom Perconte didn’t know. The lieutenant sent a man out front to scout. But he was shot. Perconte held on to a radio – without batteries – hoping he wasn’t next to be sent out as a scout. “That scared the hell out of me when he was shot,” Perconte said. At daylight, he spotted an enemy soldier about 100 yards away. Both of them ducked looking at each other, then the German ran away. Shortly after that, he was involved in a firefight with Germans at a farmhouse. He said his strongest memory is walking down a French village road with hundreds of dead Germans on both sides. He hasn’t forgotten that sight. His other strong memory of D-Day is about all of the planes that were shot down before the men jumped. He could see fires and planes going down, including the lead plane with the company commander. “Combat is all about a lot of luck,” the 87-year-old veteran said. Perconte was later wounded after fighting in the battle at Bastogne.

Sendoff by Eisenhower The late George Kozak of Lockport jumped with the 82nd Airborne troops that morning. This was their first combat, and they were green. But they had been sent off to that D-Day fight by Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Allied commander. Kozak had shaken the general’s hand before boarding the plane.

When he jumped that morning, he landed in water not far from St. Mere Eglise. He said he looked into the eyes of his buddies near him and saw wild things. He had the same wild thing in his own eyes. “We meant to survive,” he said in a 2001 interview.

Utah Beach For Richard “Dick” Davis of New Lenox, the most vivid memory of landing on Utah Beach is the big guns going off over his head as the landing craft drove in. Someone on the boat commented that he hoped there wasn’t a short round. As an infantry mortarman, he was loaded down with equipment when he jumped into the neck-deep water. He had to tiptoe in toward the beach, but it had been flooded when he got there. “This was our first combat,” he said. “We had to be young to do what we did. We had no fear then.” The next morning, his outfit hooked up with Airborne troops behind the beach. He would later learn that paratroopers had knocked out some enemy artillery guns that were aimed at Utah Beach. Yes, the Americans who landed on those beaches and behind them were young on that D-Day in 1944. The few of them who are still left are now elderly senior citizens. But their memories of that day and the pride they feel in doing that job are strong in them now. They were a part of history that must not ever be forgotten by America.

THE HERALD-NEWS LOCKPORT TOWNSHIP – A man who allegedly gave his wounded friend an unmemorable ride to the hospital Monday has been arrested on charges from a separate shooting. Will County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said detectives do not believe Deonte J. Massey-Beavers, 18, was at the intersection of Harvard and Luther avenues about 9:35 p.m. Monday where “several people fired shots” and a 19-year-old man was struck in the foot. But the wounded victim

reportedly made his way to Massey-Beavers house, which is in the 2100 block of Arthur Avenue – about a block from the shooting. Minutes later a woman was driving on California Avenue – also a block from the shooting – when another car sped by and she saw “the driver holding a handgun outside the driver’s side window where he fired two rounds at her car,” Hoffmeyer said. Neither the woman or her vehicle were struck, but she drove off the roadway and called 911, Hoffmeyer said. When the gunshot victim

arrived at Silver Cross Hospital he told deputies he did not know how he’d gotten shot or how he’d gotten a ride, Hoffmeyer said. But when investigators reviewed surveillance footage they were able to identify Massey-Beavers as the driver of the car that brought him to the hospital and shot at the woman on California Avenue, she said. Hoffmeyer said deputies located the vehicle and collected evidence and questioned Massey-Beavers, who was then arrested on charges of aggravated discharge of a firearm and reckless discharge of a firearm.

BY BRIAN STANLEY JOLIET – Police say a gang member tried pointing a gun at the officer who shot him Wednesday. Joliet Police Chief Brian Benton said a woman told police she’d been driving with the suspect when he attacked her. She reportedly escaped and called police to report the incident. “Officers were familiar with the suspect, a known gang member who has a lengthy criminal history and set up surveillance on [his] address,” Benton said. Police reportedly watched him get into the car while

carrying a silver handgun and drive away. When police attempted to pull him over about 7:24 p.m., the man led them on a brief chase that ended when he crashed into a utility pole at Chicago Street and Mills Road, Benton said. “The suspect abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot while still armed with the handgun. The uniformed officer engaged in a foot pursuit at which time the suspect pointed the weapon at the officer who fired while in fear for his life,” Benton said. The man who was shot was taken to Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center and later airlifted to another hos-

pital. Benton did not identify him or the officer who has been placed on administrative leave. Benton said putting the officer on leave is standard procedure in an officer-involved shooting, which will be investigated. “There will be two investigations of this incident. First, a criminal investigation into the actual shooting ... to ensure the actions taken by the officer were in accordance with [the] law,” Benton said. The department will then conduct an internal review to ensure the officer’s actions complied with department policy.

Drug dealer arrested Wednesday in Bolingbrook BY BRIAN STANLEY BOLINGBROOK – Police say a second dealer brought heroin from Chicago to undercover officers this week. Calvin Jeffers, 37, was arrested about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday after meeting with Metropolitan Area Narcotics Squad agents in a parking lot to sell 10 grams of heroin, according to MANS Director Mike Weber.

Weber said the case against Jeffers is not related to Monday’s arrest of Darrel A. Wilson, 28, who allegedly brought 14 grams of heroin to an undercover officer. “But there are similarities. Both men would obtain the drug on the west side of Chicago and bring it to the Bolingbrook area to sell here,” Weber said. Jeffers, of the 300 block of South Kilbourn Avenue in Chicago, was booked into the

Will County jail on a charge of delivery of drugs. According to reports, he is an admitted member of the Gangster Disciples street gang. Wilson, of the 7400 block of South Eggleston Avenue in Chicago, has been jailed on a charge of drug trafficking. He has been on parole since February from a sixyear sentence for auto theft and has four previous narcotics convictions in the last 10 years.

By VIKAAS SHANKER PLAINFIELD – The manager of the Plainfield Township Park District’s soccer program has been let go, Director of Communications Doug Booth confirmed Thursday. Frank Hernandez was hired last year as part of the maintenance department under the title of sports group and soccer program manager for the district to build up the new program, which is now in its first season. “Nothing has changed with the scheduling of the program,” Booth said, adding that Director of Recreation Cheryl Crisman is now the point person for the program. “She will be overseeing everything directly.” Crisman said the respon-

sibility will be shifted to the recreation department staff and the main goal is to make sure program participants end the season with a positive experience. “We’re trying to finish out the year as strong as we can,” Crisman said, noting the program will be evaluated after the season to see if changes need to be made. “We’ll have to see if this is filling a niche and whether that niche is being filled elsewhere.” The park district in recent months came under scrutiny for trying to start up a competing soccer program to the already established Plainfield Soccer Association. But the park district program targets younger children, potentially making it a feeder into the PSA.

Lockport native said he never felt more alive despite warfare • PAST Continued from page 3 Belman was a staff sergeant in the 8th Army Air Forces’ 305th bomb group. His crew didn’t even hear about the invasion until after they landed in Liverpool about June 15. Two weeks later they went on their first bombing run over St. Lo, a French town where the American invasion forces met heavy German resistance. Belman spent his next 34 missions – first as a waist gunner, then as a ball turret gunner and finishing up as a tail gunner – over Germany, bombing heavily-defended cities like Berlin and Cologne. Yet Belman’s experience was typical of his generation, young men who were sent overseas to fight the Nazi scourge that had enveloped most of Europe. “It was hell no matter where you were at,” Belman said. “When someone is shooting at you, it’s no fun.” At the same time, Belman said he never felt more alive. Especially in the ball turret, which he was assigned to after the first gunner was killed on their eighth mission. “To me, when I was down there, it was an adventure,” Belman said. “I was a kid, 19 years old, and understood you just had to do it.” The sense of duty and willingness to sacrifice was inherent in Finn’s and Belman’s generation, which grew up during the Great Depression, said Dennis Doyle, a history professor at Joliet Junior College. “It was a very dark period, [but] there were very clear themes,” Doyle said. “Good vs. evil, democracy vs. fascism ... a lot of young men in the military did see it that way. There was no confusion about what they were supposed to do. They were citizens first and soldiers second.” It was a time when the

“It was a very dark period, [but] there were very clear themes. Good vs. evil, democracy vs. fascism ... a lot of young men in the military did see it that way. There was no confusion about what they were supposed to do. They were citizens first and soldiers second.”

Walk steady.

Dennis Doyle Joliet Junior College history professor United States, initially reluctant to enter another land war in Europe following the blood-letting of World War I, began to embrace its new role as a leader of the free world. “The idea was to end Hitler, end fascism, end Japanese imperialism and then come back and live our lives in peace,” Doyle said. Yet the sacrifices made at Normandy still ripple across time, noted Michael Meyers, post commander American Legion Post 18 in Lockport. “The important thing to remember is how many people died on D-Day,” Meyers said. Research by the U.S. National D-Day Memorial Foundation estimates 4,414 allied soldiers died that day. “Multiply that number by two children and four grandchildren, and there’s at least 30,000 people that never were born,” Meyers said. “A lot of people my age are missing great uncles,” said Meyers, 50. “I lost one at D-Day and another at Pearl Harbor.” That’s why it’s so important to recall such moments as June 6, Doyle said. “The old saying is that history repeats itself, so we have to be careful to remember and honor those men as they pass away,” Doyle said.

If you suffer bouts of acid relux, heartburn, diarrhea, constipation, bloating, gas or IBS; Chief Medical Oficer, Dr. Liza Leal says beware of digestion remedies like Prilosec®, Prevacid® and Nexium®... They Can Cripple You! By Damian Wexler, Freelance Health Reporter ecently, alternative medicine expert Bryce Wylde, a frequent guest on the Dr. Oz show, revealed a simple secret that amazed millions who sufer with digestion nightmares. And people haven’t stopped talking about it since.


“I’d give anything to make it stop!” That’s what most people will tell you when asked about their digestive problems. “It’s just horrible says Ralph Burns, a former digestion victim. I was tortured for years by my Acid-Relux. Sometimes I’d almost pass out from the pain. My wife suffers with digestion problems too. If she eats one wrong thing, she spends hours stuck in the bathroom dealing with severe bouts of constipation or diarrhea.”

FDA Warns About Popular Antacids A recent FDA warning explained that excessive use of antacids could lead to an increased risk of hip, wrist, and spine fractures. Especially in people over the age of 50. So when alternative medicine expert Bryce Wylde discussed an alternative on National TV, you can imagine how thrilled people were to ind out they could inally get relief without having to rely on Prevecid®, Nexium®, Prilosec® and other dangerous proton pump inhibitors. But now, according to Wylde, your stomach problems could be over by simply drinking a small amount of a tasty Aloe Vera extract. It’s as simple as that!

Finally There’s Hope... At irst, the thought of drinking aloe vera might make some people back away. But in fact, this delicious “digestion cocktail” is doing amazing things for people who suffer with stomach problems --- even if they’ve had them for years. Here’s how it works…

Stop Stomach Agony Your stomach naturally produces acid so strong, it can dissolve an aluminum spoon in just 30 minutes! And when excess acid escapes into your esophagus, throat and stomach lining, it unleashes the scorching pain of Acid-Relux, heartburn, ulcers and more misery. Add the problems of stress, and “all heck breaks loose.” Dr. Liza Leal, a well known expert on chronic pain management explains... “The AloeCure® can work genuine miracles. It buffers high acid levels with amazing speed. So your stomach feels completely at ease just moments after drinking it.” In fact, it could wipe out stomach pain, discomfort, and frantic runs to the bathroom.

Until Now, Little Could Be Done... But “AloeCure® can help virtually anyone. Even people with chronic stomach pain can feel better right away,” says Dr. Leal. And what’s really exciting is AloeCure® aids in keeping your digestive tract healthy, so intestinal distress stops coming back. As Ralph Burns goes on to say, “I know AloeCure® never claimed to be a substitute for drug store products and is only meant to be a helpful supplement. Now though, AloeCure® is the only product I need for all my digestion issues”

Digestion Defender #1: Balances Stomach Acid Your irst line of defense is calcium malate. This natural acid buffer instantly sends stomach acid levels plunging. And holds acid levels down so they don’t return!

Digestion Defender #2: Instant, Soothing Relief

Doctor recommended AloeCure® may be the most important application ever discovered for digestive health!

AloeCure® is brimming with polysaccharides, a “wonder” compound that gently coats the throat, esophagus and stomach, carrying instant relief to cells scorched by excess acid.

Here’s What Doctors Are Saying! AloeCure® is backed by important scientiic studies that conirm... aloe calms stomach acid and allows your body to heal itself. Dr. Liza Leal, M.D & Chief Medical Oficer at Meridian Medical. says, “That’s why I recommend it to patients who suffer from bouts of heartburn, AcidRelux, ulcers, and irritable bowel syndrome...” Dr. Santiago Rodriguez agrees. “Just two ounces of AloeCure® reduces the acids in your stomach by ten times.” Francisco DeWeever, a Certiied Nutritional Microscopist, “My patients report their IBS, Crohn’s, Colitis, Constipation, Acid-Relux and a host of other digestive problems have all but disappeared.” After conducting an unpaid investigation about AloeCure® claims and success stories, Bryce Wylde commented that pure Aloe Vera extract like AloeCure® may be the most important application ever discovered for digestive health. He stands wholeheartedly behind his study into natural and complementary health and to this day, he receives no compensation from the sale of AloeCure® or any other product.

Safe And Easy To Use With no sugar, no stimulants, and zero calories, AloeCure® is safe, all-natural and has absolutely no side effects. It’s tasty, drug-free, and simple to use. Just drink two ounces, once in the morning, and once at night, and start enjoying immediate life- changing relief! The makers of AloeCure® have agreed to send you up to 6 FREE bottles PLUS 2 free bonus gifts with your order— they’re yours to keep no matter what. That’s enough AloeCure® for 30 days of powerful digestive relief, absolutely free! To order simply call our toll free hotline: 1-888-887-5126. But hurry! This is a special introductory offer, reserved for our readers only. Call now, supplies are limited!

TV Talk Show Doctor's Shocking Revelation

• Friday, June 6, 2014

A Joliet woman whose brother has been detained for weeks in Honduras with five other men said she fears for their health and safety. The crew from Aqua Quest International has been held at a prison in Puerto Lempira in that Central American country since May 5, when Honduran po- Steve lice and Navy Mantanich personnel raided their newly arrived 65-foot vessel and found a weapon, according to a news release from the shipwreck salvage and research company based in Tarpon Springs, Florida. “All six men are in one cell, and they have to pay for protection in jail and for food,” Valerie Smith of Joliet, sister of Steve Matanich, said Thursday. “Money is wearing thin.” Conditions within the prison are primitive by western standards, she said. “They’re only getting two meals per day and all of them have lost considerable weight,” Smith said. “Their cell is without power for 12 hours a day.” A fund to help the men has been set up at www.gofundme. com/aquaquestcrew. Smith said her brother, who grew up in Joliet, Mokena and New Lenox, was part of a project to help salvage mahogany from a local river while teaching local lobster divers proper diving techniques. The company said it was working on a project with aid workers and officials in the town of Ahuas to help the lobster divers, who can suffer per-

manent damage from dives as deep as 150 feet. “We initially thought it would be over as fast as it started because they broke no laws,” said Stephen Mayne, brother of the company’s president, Robert Mayne, who is one of those held. “There’s been a lot of work behind the scenes to secure their release, and we thought it would be best to go through the proper channels. And after all this time, when it didn’t seem to be going anywhere, we decided to take a different approach” by making a more public appeal, Mayne told The Associated Press. The U.S. State Department has confirmed the men’s detention earlier. Calls to Honduran prosecutors have gone unanswered and Honduran Navy officials declined last week to comment to the Associated Press. Ahuas is a Miskito Indian town in an impoverished Honduran region often exploited by drug traffickers. The area has been targeted by joint U.S.-Honduran anti-drug missions, though Stephen Mayne insisted none of the crew was involved in trafficking. Filmmaker Michael McCabe, who has been working with Aqua Quest and was on the boat at the time of the raid, said “the complaint is just that they basically had weapons and didn’t have permission.” The company acknowledged that the ship did have weapons aboard for protection at sea, but officials deny they failed to properly report them to port officials when they arrived. In addition to Robert Mayne and Matanich, those detained include Michael Mayne, Nick Cook, Devon Butler and Kelly Garrett.

Civil War comes to Manhattan If you go

By FELIX SARVER MANHATTAN – A civil war will once again break out in the U.S. – but this time in Manhattan, with the battles re-enacted. The Manhattan Park District will host the sixth annual Manhattan Civil War Days from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Baker/Koren Round Barn Farm Park. Formerly known as Manhattan Days of Old, the weekend-long event will feature two battles from the American Civil War: Spotsylvania and Petersburg. Luke Gundersen, the park district’s athletic and special event coordinator, said people are drawn to the event because of its historical accuracy and period detail. “It gives a life of the time of the period in Civil War,” he said. “You won’t see an Igloo Kool Mate out there. It’s all period stuff. It’s kind of cool to step back in time.” An estimated 200 actors will participate in the battles and other scenes at the event, he

Re-enactors will portray infantry, cavalry and artillery soldiers, as well as musicians, medical personnel and civilians, according to a flier for the event. Saturday’s event is set to begin at 10 a.m., with an infantry drill on the battlefield, followed by artillery and cavalry drill, and then the introduction of new recruits at the field hospital tent.

Civil rights activist Yuri Kochiyama dies at 93 By PAUL ELIAS The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO – Civil rights activist Yuri Kochiyama, whose photograph famously appeared in Life magazine showing her cradling the head of Malcom X moments after he was shot, has died of natural causes in her Berkeley home. She was 93. Kochiyama’s family said she died in her sleep Sunday. Among her many accomplishments during 50 years of work, Kochiyama’s activism led directly to the U.S. Sen-

ate’s agreement to pay reparations and apologize to Japanese-Americans and others who were interred during the World War II. Kochiyama was living in New York when she forged an unlikely bond with Malcolm X, and she witnessed his 1965 assassination in New York. Kochiyama was born in San Pedro, California, to a middle-class family. She and her family were interred for two years in Arkansas during World War II. After the war, she moved to New York and married her husband, Bill,

who died in 1993. After her release at the war’s conclusion, Kochiyama dedicated her life to social activism that spanned races, nationalities and causes, including vocal opposition of the Vietnam War and anti-apartheid policies in South Africa while supporting independence for Puerto Rico. “Her tireless dedication to civil rights helped inspire generations of activists, including within the American Muslim community,” the California chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said in a statement.

STATE ILLINOIS Dog lovers help pit bulls get adopted ROUNDUP News from across the state



Budget leaves state agencies in limbo

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois state agencies are restricting spending and bracing for the worst after lawmakers approved a budget that uses accounting gimmicks and punts on crucial decisions about where to find revenue until after the November election. The $35.7 billion spending plan for the fiscal year beginning July 1 keeps most funding flat after Democrats – who hold supermajorities in both chambers – couldn’t find enough votes to extend the state’s temporary income tax increase before adjourning for the session last week. That option’s still on the table after the November election, when lawmakers will face heightened pressure to find additional funds in the next year or cut at least $4.4 billion in expenses, forcing layoffs, facility closures and massive program cuts. But for now, agencies are preparing to adopt a so-called “maintenance plan” under a budget which doesn’t allocate enough money to cover expenses, uses special funds for day-to-day operations and banks on future increases in revenue that may not materialize. The uncertainty of receiving more tax dollars means, for example, the state has funds to repurpose a shuttered state prison, but not to staff it. Several state historic sites could close, at least temporarily. David Jensen, president of Lutheran Social Services of Illinois, the state’s largest provider of services ranging from foster care to treatment for mental illness, said assuming funding will come in is inherently risky and could jeopardize quality of services and patient care.

Adoption coordinator Donna Apgar takes Jasper, a 1-year-old pit bull mix, out of his kennel May 8 at the Winnebago County Animal Services facility in Rockford. Local pit bull lovers are doing what they can to change the perception about pit bulls, including featuring the dogs in marketing tools, special events and local activities.

Illinois’ backlog of unpaid bills was about $4.7 billion last month, according to the comptroller’s office. That’s down from nearly $10 billion in 2010. But Moody’s Investor Service said Tuesday that the unstable budget could offset some of those gains.


State insurance prices rising before health law

CHICAGO – Health insurance prices in Illinois were increasing by about 10 percent or more annually in the three years before President Barack Obama signed the nation’s health care law, according to a report released Thursday. The report by the nonpartisan Commonwealth Fund is meant to help people gauge whether prices for 2015 climb faster or slower than they did before the health care law. It includes trends in 22 states where data was available for health insurance prices for people who buy their own coverage. Prices for 2015 for Illinois

residents won’t be announced for months. Insurers now are submitting their health plans to state regulators. The new report is based on data collected by the National Opinion Research Center and analyzed by economist Jonathan Gruber. He’s a Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor who advised both former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Obama on the development of their health care laws. In Illinois, base rates for health insurance rose 14.4 percent in 2008, 10.4 percent in 2009 and 9.6 percent in 2010, according to the report. Comparing average prices before and after the overhaul expanded coverage this year can be tricky because the comparison involves two very different markets. Before 2014, insurers could control costs by excluding people who had expensive conditions or they could decline to cover things like maternity care. They can no longer exclude these things from major medical

Bird confirmed to have West Nile

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Department of Public Health has confirmed that a bird and mosquitoes have tested positive for West Nile virus. Department officials say Henry County Health Department employees found a bird that was infected with the virus on May 29 in Colona. Madison County Health Department found a batch of mosquitoes that tested positive for West Nile in Godfrey a day later. Mosquitoes pick up the virus by feeding on infected birds and passing it on through their bits. Common symptoms include fever, nausea, head and muscle aches. Public Health officials say that virus activity is largely dependent on the weather.

Vets, visitors flock to Normandy to remember D-Day anniversary The Associated Press COLLEVILLE-SUR-MER, France – Ceremonies to commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day are drawing thousands of visitors to the cemeteries, beaches and stone-walled villages of Normandy this week, including some of the few remaining survivors of the largest seaborne invasion ever mounted. World leaders and dignitaries including President Barack Obama and Queen Elizabeth II will gather to honor the more than 150,000 American, British, Canadian and other Allied D-Day veterans who risked and gave their lives to defeat Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. For many visitors, the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial, with its 9,387 white marble tombstones on a bluff overlooking the site of the battle’s bloodiest fighting at Omaha Beach, is the emotional centerpiece of pilgrimages to honor the tens of thousands of men killed on D-Day and the months of fighting afterward. D-Day veteran Clair Martin, 93, said he’s come back to Omaha Beach three times in the last 70 years – “four if you count the time they were shooting at me.” The San Diego, California resident landed on D-Day with the 29th Infantry Division and said he kept fighting until he reached the Elbe River in Germany the following April. “I praise God I made it and that we’ve never had another World War,” he said. Ceremonies large and small are taking place across Normandy, ahead of an international summit on Friday in Ouistreham, a small port that was the site of a strategic battle on D-Day. Fireworks lit up the sky Thursday night to mark the anniversary.

Paul Clifford, 70, of Boston places flowers Wednesday on the grave of Walter J. Gunther Jr., the uncle of his best friend, in the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial, in Colleville sur Mer, France. World leaders and veterans prepare to mark the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion this week in Normandy. French President Francois Hollande’s decision to invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to participate in the official ceremony despite his exclusion from the G-7 summit in Brussels is being seen by some as justified recognition of the Soviet Union’s great sacrifice in defeating Hitler, but by others as a distraction given the West’s dispute with Russia over Ukraine. Russian paratroopers joined the commemorations late Thursday, jumping down onto the town of Arromanches waving a Russian flag, in a reminder of their role fighting the Nazis on the eastern front in World War II and the millions of lives the Soviet Union lost. The Russians’ participation comes despite tensions between the U.S. and Russia over Ukraine. With many D-Day veterans now in their 90s, this year’s anniversary has the added poignancy of being the last time that many of those who took part in the battle will be able to make the long journey back to Normandy and tell their stories. “Three minutes after landing a mortar blew up

next to me and I lost my K-rations,” said Curtis Outen, 92, of Pageland, South Carolina. Outen, making his first return to Normandy since the war, related the loss of his military-issued meal packet as though it happened yesterday. “Then I cut my arm in the barbed wire entanglements. After that I was all right.” By midmorning hundreds of visitors walked among the cemetery’s long rows of white crosses and stars of David. Nearby, retired lawyer Paul Clifford of Boston kneeled silently and placed a bouquet of red, white and blue flowers at the grave of Walter J. Gunther Jr., a paratrooper of the 101st Airborne Division killed on D-Day. Clifford said the grave belonged to a relative of his best friend in Boston. The friend has never been able to travel to Normandy to visit the grave, so Clifford has come each June for the last 10 years to pay respect. “He was my best friend’s uncle. When he came down his parachute got caught in the branches. He never made it out of the trees,” Clifford said.

Officials: Threat to Bergdahl’s life led to action The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – The Obama administration has told senators it didn’t notify Congress about the pending swap of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban officials because the Taliban had threatened to kill him if the deal was made public, three congressional officials have told The Associated Press. The threat – not just concerns that Bergdahl’s health might be failing – drove the Obama administration to quickly make the deal to rescue him, the officials said Thursday. The threat was transmitted by Qatari officials at the height of the nego-

tiations, they said. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was referring in part to the threat when he said Sunday that “there was a question about his safety,” the officials told the senators in a closed-door briefing on Wednesday. The latest explanation comes as several administration and congressional officials say that a December video shown to senators in the briefing portrayed Bergdahl’s health as in decline but not so severe that he required an emergency rescue. An assessment by U.S. intelligence agencies in January came to the same conclusion, said two congressional

officials familiar with it. The congressional officials were briefed by the administration but spoke only on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. Caitlin Hayden, spokeswoman for the National Security Council, disputed the characterization of what the administration had told senators but did not provide details on what the briefing entailed. “Our judgment is that every day Sgt. Bergdahl was a prisoner his life was at risk, and in the video we received in January he did not look well. So when presented with a near-term opportunity to

recover Sgt. Bergdahl and save his life, the president chose to act,” Hayden said in an email. Meanwhile, Sen. Angus King, an independent from Maine, told CNN concerning the situation before the exchange: “They had intelligence that, had even the fact of these discussions leaked out, there was a reasonable chance Bowe Bergdahl would have been killed.” As for the earlier video, Pentagon officials did not conclude that it suggested that time was running out, a Pentagon official familiar with the Bergdahl case said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not

authorized to publicly discuss the case. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., said after the briefing Wednesday night that Bergdahl appeared drugged but not at imminent risk of death. Various officials who saw the video noted that the soldier had lost weight. U.S. officials continued to cite the health issue Thursday, including President Barack Obama, who said at a news conference in Brussels: “We had a prisoner of war whose health had deteriorated and we were deeply concerned about. And we saw an opportunity and we seized it. And I make no apologies for that.”

Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers take cover behind their vehicles Wednesday in Moncton, New Brunswick.

Search on for suspect in police killings The ASSOCIATED PRESS MONCTON, New Brunswick – Royal Canadian Mounted Police combed the streets and woods of this normally tranquil city Thursday in search of a man suspected of killing three officers in the deadliest attack on their ranks in nearly a decade. The suspect, armed with high-powered long firearms, was spotted three times while eluding the massive manhunt that emptied roads and kept families hunkered in their homes in Moncton, an east coast city where gun violence is rare. Dozens of police officers could be seen in a part of the search perimeter with their weapons drawn, some glancing around buildings. Others, including members of a tactical unit, were patrolling

streets within the cordoned off area. Armored security trucks also were visible. “Our search for the suspect is still ongoing,” RCMP Cpl. Chantal Farrah told a news conference Thursday afternoon. “Our focus remains in the mountain north area.” Farrah urged residents to keep their doors locked. “Stay at home, bar your doors and be vigilant,” she said. “I know it’s hard for families. You are in your house, you are locked, you have your kids, you want to go outside. But the police are saying to stay in.” Police were using air support, tactical teams and canine units, she said. Several hundred officers from New Brunswick and elsewhere from across Canada were involved. “We have deployed a large amount of resources from

here and elsewhere, and we are well-equipped to face this situation,” Farrah said. The 24-year-old suspect, Justin Bourque, was spotted three times around the search area Thursday morning, said Commander Marlene Snowman. Bourque was wearing military camouflage and carrying two rifles in a picture released by police on Twitter. At one point, he was seen coming in and out of a wooded area, Snowman said. “He’s capable of moving into the wooded area and out,” she said. Investigators have not determined a motive for the shooting Wednesday evening, in which three officers were killed while responding to a call about an armed man at the north end of Moncton. Two other officers were wounded.

WARREN, Mich. – General Motors said Thursday it has forced out 15 employees for their role in the deadly ignition-switch scandal and will set up a compensation fund for crash victims, as an internal investigation blamed the debacle on engineering ignorance and bureaucratic dithering, not a deliberate cover-up. GM took more than a decade to recall 2.6 million cars with bad switches that are now linked to at least 13 deaths by the automaker’s count. “Group after group and committee after committee within GM that reviewed the issue failed to take action or acted too slowly,” Anton Valukas, the former federal prosecutor hired by the automaker to investigate the reason for the delay, said in a 315-page report. “Although everyone had responsibility to fix the problem, nobody took responsibility.” GM CEO Mary Barra, who released the results of the investigation, said more than half the 15 employees forced out were senior legal and engineering executives who failed to disclose the defect. Five other employees have been disciplined, she said. She didn’t identify them. The automaker said it will

establish a compensation program covering those killed or seriously injured in the more than 50 accidents blamed on the switches. The amount available to be paid out was not disclosed. The report lays bare a company that operated in “silos,” with employees who didn’t share information and didn’t take responsiMary Barra bility for problems or treat them with any urgency. Valukas also portrays a corporate culture in which there was heavy pressure to keep costs down, a reluctance to report problems up the chain of command, a skittishness about putting safety concerns down on paper, and general bureaucratic resistance to change. He describes what was known as the “GM nod,” in which “everyone nods in agreement to a proposed plan of action but then leaves the room and does nothing.” Valukas exonerated Barra and two other top executives, Mark Reuss, chief of global product development, and general counsel Michael Millikin, saying there is no evidence they knew about the problems any earlier than last December.

Boko Haram slaughters hundreds in three villages By HARUNA UMAR The Associated Press MAIDUGURI, Nigeria – When men wearing military fatigues and carrying weapons showed up in pickup trucks, villagers thought Nigerian soldiers had finally come to protect them from Boko Haram. But it was a disguise. The gunmen rounded up everyone in the village center and then started shooting. Altogether, Boko Haram militants slaughtered hundreds of people in three villages in the far northeast corner of Nigeria, witnesses said Thursday, describing the latest attack by the Islamic extremist group that drew international attention for the kidnapping of more than 300 schoolgirls.

A community leader who witnessed the killings on Monday said residents had pleaded for the military to send soldiers to protect the area after they heard that militants were about to attack. The militants arrived in Toyota HiLux pickup trucks – commonly used by the military – and told the civilians they were soldiers and that they had come “to protect you all,” the same tactic used by the group when they kidnapped the girls from a school in the town of Chibok on April 15. “We all thought they were the soldiers whom we earlier reported to that the insurgents might attack us,” said the community leader, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he feared for his life.

tin the specific conditions he would have to meet in order to avoid more sanctions. The West wants Putin to recognize the results of Ukraine’s May 25 election and start a dialogue with President-elect Petro Poroshenko, end support for the pro-Russian insurgency in eastern Ukraine and stop the flow of arms across the Russian border. Western leaders voiced some cautious optimism that Putin may be shifting his view of the situation, noting that he did not reject the results of Ukraine’s elections outright, nor was there any overt Russian interference in the voting. But with violence still raging near Russia’s border with Ukraine, it remained unclear whether Putin was ready to fully de-escalate the months-long crisis or whether the West’s threat of more sanctions could push him in that direction. The U.S. and the European Union already have imposed sanctions on businesses and individuals with ties to Putin. But they have stopped short of slapping harsher penalties on Russia’s key economic sectors, including its energy industry.

PARIS – Laying out clear conditions, President Barack Obama and Western allies opened a pathway for Russia to ease tensions in Ukraine on Thursday but pointedly warned Moscow it could face new sanctions within weeks if Vladimir Putin fails to go along. The leaders, who were gathered in Brussels for a wealthy-nations summit, said the Russian president could avoid tougher penalties in part by recognizing the legitimacy of the new Ukrainian government and ending support for an insurgency in eastern cities that is widely believed to be backed by the Kremlin. There was no mention of rolling back Russia’s annexation of the Ukrainian region of Crimea, which precipitated the European crisis. “We are at a point where Mr. Putin has the chance to get back into a lane of international law,” Obama said during a news conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron. But Obama also said the West “can’t simply allow drift”

tin at Elysee Palace on Thursday night just after finishing dinner with Obama at a Paris restaurant. The willingness of Western leaders to meet face-to-face with Putin for the first time since he annexed the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine marked a noticeable shift in tactics. While leaders have spoken with Putin by phone during the crisis, they had avoided meeting him in person and boycotted the summit he was to host in Russia this week, choosing instead to meet without him in Brussels. It was the group’s first similar summit in two decades without the participation of Russia. Obama was not scheduled to hold a formal meeting with Putin, though the two men were expected to have some contact at a leaders lunch Friday in Normandy. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who have met frequently during the crisis, huddled in the French capital Thursday evening.

Those who fought at D-Day deserve all of our gratitude Seventy years ago, men sat in boats, or planes, and headed toward a beach in Normandy. What courage it must have taken that day for those men. They knew what likely awaited them – and they moved forward anyway, because they knew no action would result in something far worse for the world, and sacrifice was required to achieve the desired result. June 6, 1944, is known as D-Day. It’s the day thousands of Allied Forces members stormed into Europe with the aim of wresting control away from Adolf Hitler and the Axis powers. Imagine what the world might be like if they didn’t have the courage to at least try. The war didn’t end that day – it took until 1945 for that. But the foothold those brave men gained that day led to the eventual surrender of Axis powers. For the first time in a long time during World War II, the day was a beacon of hope. And the cost for that hope, like in all wars, was great. D-Day included more than 5,000 ships, 11,000 airplanes and more than 150,000 service men, according to the website for The National D-Day Memorial. “After years of meticulous planning and seemingly endless training, for the Allied Forces, it all came down to this: The boat ramp goes down, then jump, swim, run, and crawl to the cliffs,” the history portion of that website reads. “Many of the first young men (most not yet 20 years old) entered the surf carrying eighty pounds of equipment. They faced


over 200 yards of beach before reaching the first natural feature offering any protection. Blanketed by small-arms fire and bracketed by artillery, they found themselves in hell.” When it was over, there were nearly 10,000 Allied Forces casualties, with more than 4,000 confirmed dead, according to the D-Day Memorial website. “Yet somehow, due to planning and preparation, and due to the valor, fidelity, and sacrifice of the Allied Forces, Fortress Europe had been breached.” These people were part of the Greatest Generation, a term coined by journalist Tom Brokaw in a book of the same name. He wrote that this group of people was “the greatest generation any society has ever produced” and argued they fought because it was “the right thing to do.” In a world where we get frustrated by a slow Internet connection, and where putting the needs of others before our own isn’t prized, their enduring legacy is a lesson we all could be reminded of. Many of those who were part of D-Day, or World War II in general, are no longer with us. But despite their passing, what they did, what they put on the line and gave up, cannot be forgotten. Famed war correspondent Ernie Pyle surveyed the carnage on the day after the invasion and wrote eloquently of the scene “so that you can know and appreciate and forever be humbly grateful to those both dead and alive who did it for you.” They deserve our gratitude, still, now and forever.

Have we witnessed the Obama doctrine? For almost two centuries the United States has conducted its Western Hemisphere diplomacy according to the precepts of the Monroe Doctrine, promulgated in 1823 and designed to keep European powers out of hemispheric affairs. America’s involvement in Latin America was expanded substantially by the 1904 Roosevelt Corollary to the Monroe Doctrine, which proclaimed American willingness to intervene in the region. And America’s reach was extended again by the Truman Doctrine of 1947, designed to contain communism as the Cold War chilled. Have we just witnessed the expression of the Obama Doctrine, at once more expansive and less ambitious than the doctrines that preceded it? In two important speeches in recent days, President Barack Obama has shrunk

NATIONAL PERSPECTIVE David M. Shribman the U.S. role (in Afghanistan, for instance, where troops are to be withdrawn by the end of 2016) even as he expanded the country’s global footprint (primarily in Africa and Asia, where the president says new terrorist threats reside). At the heart of the Obama Doctrine – a term that he never used and that may be an over-interpretation of its scope – is the notion that the principal threat to American security comes from a discrete but exceedingly worrisome source. That threat, according to Obama, comes not from nation-states, which prompted the doctrines of James Monroe, Theodore Roosevelt

and Harry Truman. Nor does it come from a centralized terror organization like al-Qaida, the prime preoccupation of American national security efforts for the last dozen years. That threat also does not come from “trouble spots” – a classic Cold War locution applied to Berlin, the Korean peninsula and Southeast Asia, especially Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia – but from troubling rogue groups in places such as Yemen, Syria, Nigeria, Mali, Somalia and elsewhere. The president could not have made this more plain: “For the foreseeable future,” Obama said, “the most direct threat to America at home and abroad remains terrorism.” That sentence, spoken at the United States Military

The Herald-News Editorial Board offers this week’s thumbs up and thumbs down: Thumbs up: to Karen Moloney of Joliet for turning a tragedy into an opportunity to prevent more tragedies. In 2011, one of her teen employees at her Naperville Dairy Queen died by suicide. Instead of becoming bitter, Moloney, who also had clinical depression, got busy.

She contacted the director of The National Center for the Prevention of Youth Suicide and brainstormed ways to raise awareness. Moloney not only added informational pamphlets in her store, she is hosting a golf outing on June 23 to raise funds for two suicide prevention organizations. Moloney’s efforts are not only inspiring – for they demonstrate what one person

passionate about a cause can do – they may also be lifesaving. Thumbs up: to this gorgeous, long-overdue warm weather – but don’t make it a thumbs down. With more outdoor gatherings and even more travelers, the risk for auto accidents increases. We have waited months to enjoy this beautiful weather, so let’s not ruin it on the roads.

When you’re at that barbecue, or enjoying a lakeside fireworks show, think twice before taking a drink if you are driving. Let’s make this a summer to remember for all the good things. Thumbs up: to the backers of an illustrated history book on the Illinois & Michigan Canal, who raised $12,500 on to make the book a reality. The dona-

tions from 77 backers ensure Author/illustrator Tom Willcockson and the Canal Corridor Association will be able to publish “Passage to Chicago: Traveling the Illinois and Michigan Canal in 1860,” by next spring. The I&M Canal is ingrained in our local history. Being able to document that in a book will help preserve its heritage for generations to come.

Longevity of Obama’s doctrine to be decided if it succeeds in short term Academy at West Point, New York, contained none of the “Mission Accomplished” bravado of George W. Bush after the second invasion of Iraq, nor any of the soothing reassurance about the eclipse of al-Qaida that Obama has offered in years past. Both expressions today look worse than premature. They look naive – and dangerous. The twin Obama speeches were designed to counter Obama’s twin rivals, domestic and foreign. His domestic opponents reacted coolly, asking why the president would provide public notice to the Taliban of the exact moment when U.S. troops would no longer provide a substantial obstacle in Afghanistan and arguing that the president’s initiative was just another misbegotten judgment to match those he made regarding Syria and Russia.

growing rivalry with Soviet Russia. Their view of the world was dominated by the great powers that dominated the world. Although they prosecuted and funded wars at Inchon and around the 38th parallel, and during the Tet Offensive and the Vietnamization effort, they took their lessons from Pearl Harbor and D-Day, and inevitably regarded Washington, London, Paris, Berlin and Rome (plus the United Nations headquarters at Turtle Bay) as the centers of diplomacy and power. Whether what Obama spoke about this week deserves spelling “doctrine” with an uppercase D or a lowercase one, he set out a more modest American role (expanding American “reach without sending forces that stretch our military too thin, or stirs up local resentments”) even as it establishes a wider security horizon (in Asia and Africa).

In the Cold War, American attention tended to be concentrated on one place at a time – in Europe right after World War II as the Soviet bloc expanded, in Asia as China fell to the Communists and Korea became the setting for a difficult “police action,” in Vietnam as Americans divided over whether Southeast Asia might become a communist “domino,” and then in Africa as proxy wars were fought in Congo and Angola. This new threat requires a worldwide focus, which is to say, no particular focus at all. And, in truth, Obama’s vision may be more descriptive than prescriptive, as the United States seems already to have adopted this doctrine. The power politics of the 19th and 20th century has seemed passe throughout the Obama years, which is one reason the response to the Russian advances in Ukraine seemed so tepid. Large nation-states still dominate the globe and threats still reside

in countries such as Iran and North Korea. But most of the gunfire and explosives come from decentralized terrorist cells scattered about the globe. It is those groups that have the attention of Obama and that prompted his proposal for a $5 billion Counterterrorism Partnership. And it is those groups whose activities the Obama Doctrine – flawed or limited or perhaps too modest – is designed to counter. The doctrines that preceded Obama’s were conceived as long-term if not permanent themes in American foreign policy. The longevity of Obama’s doctrine will be determined by whether it succeeds or fails in the short term.

rivals was more difficult to measure, reflecting the fact that the new emphasis in American national security is aimed at, in the phrase employed by Obama, a “diffuse threat.” Even so, the notion that the United States was embarking on a new era was underlined by an intriguing, even irresistible, coincidence: the primary-election defeat of Rep. Ralph M. Hall, a 91-yearold Texas Republican, on the same day Obama declared that it was “time to turn the page on a decade” of foreign policy focused on wars in central Asia. Hall’s defeat ensures that the new Congress to be seated in January will have no veterans of World War II. Nine American presidents were in one way or another involved in that conflict. All of them, and scores of lawmakers on Capitol Hill, were shaped by the debacle of European appeasement at Munich, by the Allied effort that defeated Nazi Germany and Japan, by the development of American nuclear power and by the

East advances to sectional final against Joliet West By CURT HERRON

• Friday, June 6, 2014

TINLEY PARK – Lincoln-Way East’s softball team may have earned a regular season split with Lockport, but it got clobbered in the teams’ final meeting shortly before the playoffs. So, when the two met for the rubber match in Thursday’s Class 4A Andrew Sectional semifinals, the Griffins were determined to turn in a different type of performance. They utilized the long ball in order to do just that, smashing three home runs, which resulted in seven runs to highlight an 11-hit attack. Those homers hit by Jenny Van Geertry, Blake Ruiz and Nikole Van Gennep proved to be the difference as East grabbed the early lead and kept building on it before settling for an 11-5 victory over the Porters. The win advances the Griffins (25-10) to their first sectional final appearance since 2009. They’ll try to win their first sectional title since 2007 when they meet Joliet West in Saturday’s 10 a.m. championship game. “Once something good happens, we definitely feed off of each other,” said Van Geertry, who put her team up for good with a two-run shot in the first. “And even if something bad happens, there’s always someone who brings everyone up. It’s a really good feeling when you have a team that supports you, and I think that’s why we’ve been so successful.” Van Geertry went 4 for 4, scored four runs and drove in three to lead coach Elizabeth Pawlicki’s squad. Beside going the distance to get the win, Van Gennep went 3 for 4 and also drove in three runs, while Ruiz collected four RBIs. Van Gennep worked out of a first-inning jam by getting a strikeout on a 3-2 pitch with the bases loaded to help her

After Lockport (27-9-1) closed to within 2-1 in the second on a solo homer by Zara Voulgaris (2 for 3), East regained control with a four-run third, which was capped with a three-run shot down the leftfield line by Ruiz. “The last time we faced

them, we got slaughtered, so we came out with a lot of intensity,” Ruiz said. “Once everyone starts getting their stuff together then we’re all basically playing for each other, not for ourselves. It’s been a long time since we’ve played for a sectional title, so it’s cool to be a part of this.”

The Porters got a run back in the third when Halle Hollatz (2 for 4) singled home Haley Arndt and then made it 6-3 an inning later when Elena Woulfe (2 for 4) tripled and then scored on an infield out by Kelly Pattison (3 for 5, two RBIs). But the Griffins re-established control in the fifth when Van Geertry singled home Eleni Kioussis and then Van Gennep followed with a tworun blast to center. “We’re all just so pumped and ready,” Van Gennep said. “Once one hitter leads it off, we’re all ready and as loud as we can be. All of us are just picking each other up and doing what we do best. When

it was 3 and 2, and the bases were loaded in the first, my coach told me to relax and that calmed me down. It’s really exciting to be playing for a sectional title.” After Pattison doubled in a run in the sixth, East added two more runs in the seventh as Ruiz delivered an RBI single and Devon Morgan drove in its last run on a sacrifice fly. “At this point of the year, you have to try to control the momentum and keep it on your side,” Porters coach Marissa Chovanec said. “This game could have gone either way. But our kids battled all year, and I can’t give enough credit to the senior leadership that we had.”



Plainfield North stages late rally to beat Neuqua

The Herald-News / • Friday, June 6, 2014


By TIM TIERNEY Shaw Media Correspondent OSWEGO – A leadoff base bit by Josh Garner and a perfect sacrifice bunt by pitcher Joe Callahan put Plainfield North in position for a seventh-inning rally, but it didn’t come easy. “It was nerve-racking considering that I haven’t hit in a few weeks,” Callahan said of getting the bunt down that put the tying run on second. Jason Pacanowski, who struck out in his first two atbats, was next in the batters’ box for Plainfield North in the Class 4A Oswego Sectional semifinal. “Whenever I’m in the box, I try not to think about anything,” Pacanowski said. “Just see the pitch coming at me.” Pacanowski saw it and ripped a game-tying single

Zach Jarosz reached on an error and two walks later, North had a 3-2 win over Neuqua Valley and a spot in Saturday’s sectional championship game.

Matt Welch was given an intentional pass to load the bases and Bryan Van Duser drew the game-ending walk that made a winner of Callahan and gave extra meaning to

Pacanowski’s hit. “It felt good to battle back, especially after two K’s to start the day, come back and get a good hit like that,” Pacanowski said. “It couldn’t have come at a better situation. “When a pitcher is pitching an absolute fantastic game like that, whether it’s Joe or any other pitcher, it’s the team’s duty to put some runs up.” Callahan retired the first 10 batters and faced the minimum through four innings. A throwing error led to Neuqua taking a 1-0 lead in the fifth. North (28-8) fell behind, 2-0, in the sixth when Callahan gave up an RBI double to Tyler Tesmond. But Callahan regrouped in the seventh and retired the side in order, including a called third for his eighth strikeout. “I just kept battling out there,” Callahan said. “The


Big catch key for Providence semifinal win Will play No. 1 seed Lincoln-Way North in sectional final Saturday By STEVE MILLAR Shaw Media Correspondent TINLEY PARK – Carl Sandburg’s baseball team battled back from a 4-0 deficit Thursday against Providence Catholic, and when the ball came off Peter Paxinos’ bat in the bottom of the sixth inning, it seemed as if the Eagles were going to take the late lead. Phil Kunsa wasn’t going to let that happen. The Celtics’ senior right fielder made a terrific diving catch to rob Paxinos of what would have been a go-ahead two-run hit and end the sixth inning with the lead intact. Providence ace Jake Godfrey finished it off from there as the Celtics earned a 5-3 win in Thursday’s Class 4A Andrew Sectional semifinal. “I knew 100 percent that I had it,” Kunsa said. “I knew I

had to make a play. Our center fielder, Ben Salvador, makes diving catches like that all the time. I just picked up the mojo from him.” The sixth-seeded Celtics (24-14) will take on No. 1 seed Lincoln-Way North in the sectional final at 11 a.m. Saturday. Kunsa’s catch came after Sandburg (24-9) had scored twice off Godfrey in the sixth to pull to within 4-3 and had runners at second and third with two outs. “As soon as I saw him hit it, I was like ‘Oh boy,’ ” Providence coach Mark Smith said. “What a catch. I gave [Kunsa] a big hug and I told him he saved our season.” After getting the help he needed, Godfrey took matters into his own hands to get some insurance in the seventh. After Cam Galgano (3 for 4) tripled off the right-field wall with two outs, Godfrey (2 for 4) followed with an RBI triple of his own. Godfrey then struck out the side in the bottom of the inning to seal the win. “We were a hit away from

taking the lead and then their guy makes a great catch and they come up with two triples in the seventh,” Sandburg coach Jim Morsovillo said. “They made the big plays. You’ve got to give them credit.” Godfrey, a senior who’s committed to Louisiana State, went the distance, allowing three runs – just one earned – on four hits and two walks while striking out seven. The Celtics gave him some breathing room in the third, taking full advantage of a key error. Providence pushed across four unearned runs on four straight two-out hits. Kunsa produced an RBI single and Galgano a two-run base hit. “Coach Smith always tells

us that we have to get hits and take advantage when a team makes an error,” Galgano said. “We did that. We know when we give Jake any sort of support, good things happen.” Godfrey’s RBI double made it 4-0. “We knew coming in that runs were going to be at a premium,” Smith said. “We came up with some big hits. Kunsa’s hit broke the ice and Cam’s was huge, giving us that three-run cushion.” The Celtics have put a lateApril/early-May skid that saw their record go from 15-5 to 1612 long behind them. “We knew we were capable of being a good team,” Smith said. “It’s all about the postseason.”

mound was kind of breaking up a little, but I found my rhythm and stuck with it through seven.” “I thought our kid pitched his butt off the entire day,” North coach John Darlington said. “He had a couple things go bad for him.” The good started for North when Jack Butler delivered a two-out RBI single in the sixth to cut Neuqua’s lead to 2-1. Neuqua starting pitcher Matt Butler struck out six and yielded one run before Andy Sommers took over on the mound after the leadoff hit in the seventh. “We finally a couple hard the last two innings,” Darlington said. “Before that, [Butler] had our number. He was throwing three pitches for strikes. Eventually he got a little tired and we got some good swings late.”

BLOOMINGTON – There are losses that will rip your heart out, and then there’s the one Joliet West baseball suffered in Wednesday’s Class 4A Bloomington Sectional semifinal at Illinois Wesleyan University. The Tigers, picking up where they left off in last Saturday’s 13-2 win over Minooka in the championship game of the Plainfield South Regional, blasted six hits in a six-run third inning that established a 6-0 lead over Moline. With the way junior lefthander Robert Talarico was throwing, it appeared for all the world that West (2214) would be Edwardsville’s opponent in Saturday morning’s sectional final. This, however, is baseball. Moline (22-12) wound up winning, 7-6, on a run in the bottom of the seventh inning. It scored on a two-out error and a disputed call at first base. But it was how the Maroons battled back to draw even that was especially gut-wrenching for the Tigers. They did it, basically, by keeping the bats on their shoulders. Talarico lost the strike zone in the fifth inning, when he threw 39 pitches. Moline, which finished the game with three hits, scored three runs on four walks, a hit batter and a wild pitch on a dropped third strike. Still, West was up, 6-3. But when Talarico walked the second Moline batter in the bottom of the sixth, West coach John Karczewski replaced him with senior right-hander Mark Zelinski. He walked the first three batters he faced to make it 6-4 and Mitch Owens blooped a two-out, two-run single to left to tie it. “Robert [Talarico] was looking good, but then he hit a wall,” Karczewski said. “He battles. He leaves it all on the field. We thought in the sixth he might dial it back up.” West almost went ahead in

the top of the seventh, but Moline first baseman Brett Newberg made a highlight-reel recovery to retire Jake Poch, who was bidding for the goahead RBI single. Moline put a runner on third with one out in the bottom of the seventh, and Zelinski nearly worked out of it. Austin Fancher drilled a shot that hit off shortstop Cody Grosse and dropped behind him. He picked it up and fired a one-hop throw to first baseman Matt Ramirez, who made an excellent pick, but Fancher was called safe. It was over. “I thought we had him,” Karczewski said. “I have a feeling if we had replay that call would have been reversed. It was one of those games. We were up, down, up, down.” Karczewski said he was not planning to use the staff ace, senior left-hander Zack Thomas, unless the Tigers had gone back ahead in the top of the seventh. “We knew we had ‘Z’ [Zelinski] in relief this game,” Karczewski said. “We needed Zack for Saturday’s game. If this one goes extra innings and Zack is out there, we lose him for Saturday. “To be honest, with ‘Z’ on the mound, I was fine with him there for the last batter. He’s a warrior and a great kid. He didn’t pitch last year after a surgery and came back and did all we asked this year. He throws in the upper 80s and has a nasty curve.” Thomas, whose two-run double knocked in the first two runs of the six-run third inning, said, “This is just how this game goes. We felt we had it, especially after the big third inning. But we had to finish them off and didn’t do it.” West closed with nine hits, but some balls hit hard after the third inning found their way to the Moline defense. “It was just like the Minooka game from an offensive standpoint,” Thomas said. “We had good at-bats the whole game.” “Even our outs were hit

Joliet West suffers ultimate heartbreaker in loss

Morris baseball seniors leave lasting legacy Despite Wednesday’s Class 3A LaSalle-Peru Sectional semifinal loss, Redskins go out on top VIEWS Rob Oesterle PERU – No coach or player wants a season to end, unless it’s with the biggest trophy that sport offers. Unfortunately, all but four Illinois baseball teams will be out of luck as far as that goes this season. What’s left for the rest are the memories they will take from the season and the lessons they learned from it. There will be no shortage of either when it comes to the 2014 edition of the Morris Redskins baseball team. It will have the memory of winning the first regional title for the program since 2003, of battling for a Northern Illinois Big 12 East title, of winning the LaSalle-Peru Tournament. It will have the biggest lesson that most teams take from a season. That sometimes, no matter how well you play, things won’t always work out how you want. For coach Todd Kein, the group of seniors – Kyle Hill, Matt Bernickus, Nick Evola, RIcky Pelnarsh, Austin Conrod, Brock Kukman, Geno Persico, Matt Darlington, Trevor Lines, Eric Robinson, John Struck, Grant Schluntz and Tim Smyk – will always hold a special place in his memory. “These guys represented the program well all year long,” he said. “As a coach, that’s all you can ask for. Not only in the way they played in games, but the way they had 100 percent buy into what we do in our program. We were all on the same page, and I hope the younger guys on the team paid attention and learned from them. “These seniors left their mark on the program. They understood that it wasn’t just for this year. The program goes on after they leave and they want it to keep going. I can’t ask for better role models for the young guys than this senior class. They left the program in a better place than it was when they joined it.” It was fitting, then, that

The Redskins lost, ending their season. every big play in Wednesday’s game involved a senior. Conrod started the first-inning rally with a bunt single, then scored when Smyk doubled. Evola then kept the momentum going when he struck out the side in Peoria Notre Dame’s half of the first. In the top of the second, Schluntz laid into one and lined it over the fence for a leadoff homer and a 2-0 lead. Two outs later, Conrod singled again and Lines perfectly executed the hit-and-run by grounding through the vacated hole on the right side to put runners on first and third. Lines then stole second and Conrod scored on the double steal. In the bottom of the seventh, with Morris trailing, 4-3, and facing Peoria Notre Dame’s Jake Hurst, a fire-balling 6-foot-4, 220-pound Bradley University recruit, Lines got a chance. He worked the count to 2-2, fouling off three tough two-strike pitches along the

seventh inning. That was one of the best at-bats we had all season. He just fought and fought and came through. “It’s too bad for these guys that they came up just short.”

back at a 4-3 game and remember a tough loss,” Kein said. “I will remember the at-bat that Trevor Lines had in the

Let me take a step back and apologize for a story earlier this week. I wrote that Morris’ last baseball regional title was in 2003 when Billy Petrick was pitching for them. The Redskins’ last title was indeed in 2003, but Petrick graduated in 2002. The leaders on the 2003 team, which won the Oswego Regional before losing to Plainfield South in the semifinals of the Morris Sectional, were Phil Balzer and Scott Hickey. In 2002, the Petrick team won the Morris Regional before losing the sectional semifinal game, hosted by DeKalb High School but played at Northern Illinois’ Ralph McKinzie Field, to West Aurora.

Lemont moves on to sectional baseball final

Rizzo, Wood homer as Cubs sweep Mets

STAFF REPORTS NEW LENOX – Lemont’s baseball team advanced to Saturday’s Class 3A Lincoln-Way West Sectional final after claiming a 7-1 win over Illiana Christian on Thursday. Danny Doiwarz had three hits while Nick Wisz (two RBIs) and Mike Papierski added two hits each for the Indians. Charlie Wright (four strikeouts) and Garrett Acton (five strikeouts) combined for the win on the mound. The Indians will meet the winner of the day’s second contest, which was between Manteno and Morgan Park.

By ANDREW SELIGMAN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Anthony Rizzo hit a tiebreaking homer, Travis Wood went deep and drove in three runs, and the Cubs beat the New York Mets, 7-4, Thursday night to complete the three-game sweep. Rizzo’s solo drive off Vic Black (1-1) with one out in the seventh gave the Cubs a lead after they wasted a fourrun lead. Andrew Brown’s two-run shot tied it 4-all in the top half. Junior Lake added a tworun triple in the eighth, and the Cubs came away with their first series sweep since they took three at San Francisco last July 26-28. Wood delivered in a big way at the plate and was in line for the win before New York rallied from a 4-0 deficit.

Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo (right) celebrates with third base coach Gary Jones after hitting a solo home run during the seventh inning of Thursday’s game against the Mets at Wrigley Field. He hit a two-run homer in the second off Jacob deGrom after Luis Valbuena was ruled safe at home on a sacrifice fly following a replay review to give the Cubs a 3-0 lead. And Wood drove in another run with a fielder’s choice grounder in the

fourth. The Mets scored two while chasing Wood in the sixth and tied it in the seventh when Brown, who was recalled from Triple-A earlier in the day, connected off Justin Grimm. Rizzo, however, put the

Cubs back on top with a long drive to right-center on a 3-1 pitch for his team-leading 11th homer. Grimm (2-2) got the win. Pedro Strop stranded two runners in the eighth before Lake made it a three-run game in the bottom half. Neil Ramirez then converted his first save opportunity, retiring the side ninth, and the Cubs swept three from New York at Wrigley Field for the first time since April 2004. It helped that the Mets went 2 for 13 with runners in scoring position and stranded 11 runners. They wasted several opportunities against Wood, who gave up two runs and five hits in five-plus innings. He tied a season high with five walks but kept pitching out of trouble until the Mets knocked him out in the sixth.

Baseball legend, former Cubs manager, Don Zimmer dies THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Don Zimmer wasn’t a fixture in baseball forever. It just seemed that way. He played alongside Jackie Robinson on the only Brooklyn Dodgers team to win the World Series. He coached Derek Jeter on the New York Yankees’ latest dynasty. And his manager once was the illustrious Casey Stengel. For 66 years, Zimmer was a most popular presence at ballparks all over, a huge chaw often filling his cheek. Everyone in the game seemed to know him, and love him. Zimmer was still working for the Tampa Bay Rays as a senior adviser when he died Wednesday at 83 in a hospital in nearby Dunedin. He had been in a rehabilitation center since having seven hours of heart surgery in mid-April. “Great baseball man. A baseball lifer. Was a mentor to me,” teary-eyed Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. Zimmer started out as a

minor league infielder in 1949, hitting powerful shots that earned him the nickname “Popeye.” He went on to enjoy one of the longest-lasting careers in baseball history. Zimmer played on the original New York Mets, saw his Boston Red Sox beaten by Bucky Dent’s playoff homer and got tossed to the ground by Pedro Martinez during a brawl. Oh, the tales he could tell. “Zim was Don Zimmer around when I first came up. He was someone that taught me a lot about the game – he’s been around, he’s pretty much seen everything,” Jeter said after the Yankees lost to Oakland, 7-4. “His stories, his experiences.” With the champion Yankees, Zimmer was Joe Torre’s right-hand man as the bench coach. “I hired him as a coach, and he became like a family

member to me. He has certainly been a terrific credit to the game,” Torre said in a statement. “The game was his life. And his passing is going to create a void in my life ... We loved him. The game of baseball lost a special person tonight. He was a good man,” he said. A career .235 hitter in the big leagues, numbers could never define all that Zimmer meant to the game. He had tremendous success, too – his teams won six World Series rings and went to the postseason 19 times. Zimmer’s No. 66 Rays jersey had been worn recently by longtime Tampa Bay third base coach Tom Foley in tribute – the team wanted that, and MLB decided a coach should wear it. Foley was crying in the dugout Wednesday night during a 5-4 loss to Miami. He later remembered the Rays going as a team to see “42,” the movie about Robinson. “He would talk about it. He

had a lot of stories, a lot of history coming out of him,” Foley said. “He had a lot to give, a lot to offer and he did.” Earlier this season, the Rays hung a banner in the front of the press box at Tropicana Field that simply read “ZIM.” “Today we all lost a national treasure and a wonderful man,” Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg said in a statement. There was a moment of silence at Dodger Stadium for Zimmer before Los Angeles played the White Sox. “On behalf of Major League Baseball and the many clubs that ‘Popeye’ served in a distinguished baseball life, I extend my deepest condolences to Don’s family, friends and his many admirers throughout our game,” Commissioner Bud Selig said in a statement. Zimmer’s biggest admirer was his wife “Soot” – they were married at home plate during a minor league game in 1951. Two years later in the minors, Zimmer’s path took

a frightening turn – he was beaned by a fastball and left in a coma, and doctors had to put metal screws in his head. Zimmer recovered well enough to wear a lot of uniforms during his 56 years in the majors. He played for the Dodgers, Mets, Cubs, Cincinnati Reds and Washington Senators. He managed San Diego, Boston, Texas and the Cubs. “I loved Zim. I loved his passion. He was a great, great guy. He was a great baseball guy,” Yankees executive Hank Steinbrenner told The Associated Press. “Everybody loved him.” Zimmer hit 91 home runs and had 352 RBIs in 12 seasons. He started Game 7 when Brooklyn beat the Yankees for the 1955 crown and was an AllStar in 1961. Zimmer was the 1989 NL Manager of the Year with the Cubs and was at Yankee Stadium for three perfect games, by Don Larsen in the 1956 World Series and by David Cone and David Wells in the late 1990s.

Sox take lefty with No. 3 pick By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN ANAHEIM, Calif. – In selecting North Carolina State left-hander Carlos Rodon with the No. 3 overall pick in baseball’s amateur draft Thursday, the White Sox got the guy most everyone viewed as the best prospect at any position going into the season whose stock slipped only by a shade but not enough to keep him from being regarded as the pitcher mostly likely to first reach the major leagues. That could happen as soon as this season in the same fashion as Sox ace Chris Sale in 2010, who was drafted in the first round and brought up to pitch in relief in August and September of that year. Rodon, 21, has the package to do it. His slider is as good, if not better, than any pitch possessed by a pitcher in this draft. “When you can bury a slider on the back foot of a right-handed hitter and get it under his hands, you know a guy has a really good one,”

N.C. State’s Carlos Rodon pitches against North Carolina during an NCAA College World Series elimination game June 20 in Omaha, Neb. The White Sox drafted Rodon with the third overall pick in Thursday’s amateur draft. Sox scouting director Doug Laumann said. “It’s certainly a dominant pitch, and that’s not to take anything away from his fastball and change-up, which are plus pitches.” After an exceptional summer with USA baseball, Rodon went 6-7 with a 2.01 ERA in his junior season this spring, strik-

ing out 117 over 98⅔ innings. Although not the huge year that was expected, Sox pitching coach Don Cooper, who watched video of the top pitching prospects, said Rodon was closer to being major league ready than any pitcher in the draft and suggested he could do what Sale did four years ago.


Cubs first to take position player By GORDON WITTENMYER CHICAGO – The Cubs got the kind of left-handed power hitter the organization lacks when they selected Indiana University’s Kyle Schwarber with the No. 4 overall pick in Thursday night’s first round of the June amateur draft. At least as important, they got him for the right price. Once the consensus top three pitchers in the draft went off the board with the top three picks – including the Cubs’ top-rated player, left-hander Brady Aiken – the Cubs went to the alternate plan of selecting a hitter willing to sign for less than the $4.6 million allotted for the No. 4 pick. The Cubs will use the money saved to draft more aggressively for better quality depth

as the three-day draft continues today. “Certainly, you do your due diligence, talking about signability and getting an idea of what they’re looking for and what you’re hopeful to get a player to sign for,” said Jason McLeod, vice president of scouting and player development. “We expect this to be a very quick process and getting him out and playing in the organization. And there’s a good chance we’ll get to spend some [saved] money elsewhere.” Schwarber, who said he realized just this week of the Cubs’ possible interest in him with their top pick, wouldn’t offer a timeline for signing during a media conference call Thursday night. “Right now, I’m really embracing the moment,” he said.

“That’s what Theo [Epstein] told me to do: ‘Embrace the moment and take your time.’ ” McLeod said the Cubs were “enamored” with Aiken, the California high school pitcher taken first overall by Houston. “But Kyle was No. 2,” he said. Most draft analysts projected the 6-foot, 240-pound Schwarber as closer to a middle- to lower first-round pick. And insiders said there was significant debate over several players in the final hours leading up to the draft. General manager Jed Hoyer said one such meeting Wednesday lasted three hours. But Schwarber, 21, is a mature, athletic, powerful hitter who fills a need in the organization as a lefty hitter. “We felt Kyle was the best hitter, hands-down, in this year’s draft,” McLeod said.

Plainfield School of Rock encourages children to create music as a group

By DENISE M. BARAN–UNLAND PLAINFIELD – At just 30, Jason Fein of Oswego owns one successful School of Rock franchise and is working on two more. Fein opened his first – in Plainfield – on June 1, 2013. He plans to open a Geneva store in four to six months and a Schaumburg location in 14 to 18 months. The Plainfield venue already has more than 100 students, unusual for a new School of Rock, said spokeswoman Kelly McNamara. According to franchising., School of Rock is an after-school music education program that is performance-based. The first school of rock opened in 1998. Franchising began in 2005. Its more than 100 schools are located in the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Canada, Chile and the Philippines. Shelli Awalt of Plainfield knows exactly why Fein’s school is so successful. Through the year her son, Dalton Awalt, 12, has been learning and playing guitar at the School of Rock, Dalton has changed from shy to outgoing, Shelli said. “We love Jason,” Shelli said. “He’s an incredible instructor and good with children. He can bring out their ‘inner person.’ ” School of Rock was Dalton’s first experience with music lessons, Shelli said. Although Shelli’s husband, Erich, is a guitarist, she and Erich let Dalton select his own instrument. Shelli wasn’t surprised when Dalton chose the guitar. “It didn’t hurt that we have 12 [guitars] in the house,” Awalt said. Like Dalton, Fein grew up surrounded by music, he said. His father, Mel Fein, of Naperville, played the recordings of Jethro Tull and Led Zeppelin. Fein, a child of the mid-90s, doted on Pearl Jam, Green Day and Nirvana. Fein started piano lessons at 9 and guitar two years later.

Students from Plainfield’s School of Rock perform. The school does not simply provide music lessons; it teaches children to create music as a group. When he was 12, Fein did what many 12-year-old music lovers do. He founded a band and not a very good band, Fein said. Neither he nor his friends could play very well, he added. “We just set up a video camera and played cool songs,” Fein said Fein tried again at 14 with another band. He also sang in the chorus at Naperville Central High School and discovered his talent was vocals. Fein attended Lincoln College on a performance scholarship and came full circle by participating in a men’s a cappella chorus that sang ’60s songs. After college, Fein began teaching music at a School of Rock in the Chicago area, eventually becoming that school’s general manager and music director, he said. Fein also continued membership in bands. For the last six years, Fein

has sung lead vocals for The Run Around, a punk rock band that tours nationally and has opened for musical acts as Tom Petty and Blues Traveler, he said. Opening a School of Rock allowed Fein to combine and balance his business sense with his zeal for music. Fein’s approach to music instruction also resonated with the franchise’s premise that the best way to teach children music is to allow them to play music, Fein said. According to the website at, School of Rock offers weekly private lessons in guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards, drums, as well as group rehearsals so the students can perform a concert together, on stage and to live audiences. “Just like a real band does,” Fein said. Children older than 10 re-

More online For a complete listing of programs, camps and events, visit hearse for three hours a week, with half that time allotted for the 7- to 10-year-old set. School of Rock also offers modified musical programs for children younger than 7. Although running a music school also keeps Fein’s schedule flexible for touring, Fein’s two worlds sometimes nearly collide. “The night before our grand opening,” Fein said, “The Run Around played at the House of Blues.” Fein’s two business partners are his parents, the very people who fueled his music fire. Mel is an attorney and Chery Fein is a certified public accountant. Mel and Chery

oversee the legal and financial aspects of the Plainfield School of Rock, while Fein manages overall school operations. Chery agreed the school was a natural fit for her son. Although she felt confident her son would succeed, Chery said Fein’s success has surpassed hers and Mel’s expectations. “We go to the school and watch the performances,” Chery said. ”We’ve seen the impact on the kids. They just blossom.” Fein is especially proud of one student, a withdrawn fourth-grader that was removed from the regular classroom and placed into one for children battling social issues. After a year at Fein’s School of Rock, that child no longer needs the special class, Fein said. “He still spends a couple hours a day there,” Fein said, “helping the other kids.”

“EDGE OF TOMORROW” STARRING: Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton

PLOT: An officer finds himself caught


“THE FAULT IN OUR STARS” STARRING: Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff PLOT: Hazel and Gus are two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel’s other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. RATED: PG-13 for thematic elements, some sexuality and brief strong language TIME: 2 hours, 5 minutes VERDICT: Let’s start with the obvious. For its core audience, “The Fault in Our Stars” is essentially critic-proof. If you’re a fan of the wildly popular young-adult book by

John Green, and have already shed tears at its story of teenage cancer patients learning about life, love and sex as they fight to stay alive, then you’ll be a fan of this movie. Slam dunk. Go buy your ticket. But of course, you probably already have. The situation becomes more nuanced, however, for those who haven’t read the book. Both author and fans have pronounced the movie, directed by Josh Boone, extremely faithful to the novel, but does that make for the optimal cinematic experience? Many films have failed, after all, for adhering too strictly to the written page. Happily, we can report that “The Fault in Our Stars” is, despite the occasional misstep in tone, largely a solid success – a film that not only manages the transition from page to screen nicely, but also navigates with skill that hugely tricky line between the touching and the trite, the moving and the maudlin. And that latter task ain’t easy. But there’s one major reason that the movie succeeds in this regard. Her name is Shailene Woodley. It’s hard to believe it’s only been two years and change since Woodley’s breakout performance in “The Descendants.” Don’t you feel like you’ve known her much longer? Perhaps it’s because she’s established herself so firmly as one of our most interesting and yet also most grounded, honest young actors. Her mere presence lends an air of authenticity to whatever else is happening onscreen. That’s particularly crucial in the role of Hazel Grace Lancaster, a 16-yearold with an easy wit – intelligent, wry and pragmatic without being overly cynical. Hazel barely survived thyroid cancer as a preteen; a flashback shows the agonizing moment when her mother (a touching Laura Dern, in a difficult part) told her it was OK to “let go.” But Hazel didn’t, and now, buoyed by an experimental drug, she’s already taking college classes. She wears nasal tubes, which carry oxygen from the portable tank she carries with her always. Urged by her doting parents to try a cancer support group, she reluctantly attends, and there meets Gus – better known to readers as Augustus Waters (the appealing newcomer Ansel Elgort), along with his sidekick, Isaac (Nat Wolff). Gus is handsome – very handsome – and somewhat cocky, although clearly this is a fighting mechanism. Gus has lost a leg to

cancer, but he’s apparently in remission, and determined to live – not just any life, but an extraordinary one. But what defines an extraordinary life? The movie explores this theme as it follows Hazel and Gus to Amsterdam. Their goal: to meet Hazel’s favorite author, Peter Van Houten (a suitably crusty Willem Dafoe), and ask questions about his novel, “An Imperial Affliction” – a book with which Hazel is obsessed. The trip is by turns disappointing, inspiring, joyful and tragic. A crucial love scene is beautifully handled, with nary a false note. It’s unfortunate that an earlier moment, involving a trip to Anne Frank’s house, feels uncomfortable – cheesy, and, in its juxtapositions, somewhat tone-deaf. It’s important to note that the scene – and the rationale behind it – is conveyed far more successfully in the book. But that’s a fairly rare misstep. And now we must inform you, dear moviegoer: About three-quarters of the way through, if not sooner, you’ll start hearing sniffles, then sobs, all around you. And it’s hard to imagine you, too, won’t succumb, even a little. And that’s because of Woodley. “The world is not a wish-granting factory,” Gus says. No, but in finding a young actress who can make an audience fall apart while her character somehow remains fairly together herself, the filmmakers certainly saw their own wish granted. – The Associated


“MALEFICENT” STARRING: Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley

PLOT: A vindictive fairy is driven to curse an infant princess only to realize the child may be the only one who can restore peace. RATED: PG for sequences of fantasy action and violence, including frightening images. TIME: 1 hour, 37 minutes VERDICT: Maybe it’s too soon to say the tide has shifted definitively. But it’s certainly been a unique time for fairy-tale villains. After hundreds of years of moral clarity, suddenly we’re getting a new look at these evil creatures, who are actually turning out to be complex beings, and not that bad at all. Really, they’ve just been misunderstood. (And, by the way, those charming princes? Highly overrated.) The most obvious recent example is “Frozen,” the animated Disney blockbuster that showed us

how the Snow Queen, long portrayed as an icy-hearted villain, was actually a tragic victim of circumstance, with a pure and loving heart. And now we have “Maleficent,” which tells us that one of the most evil characters in all of pop culture is equally vulnerable and misunderstood. Plus, she’s gorgeous. Duh. She’s Angelina Jolie. All this is a rather seismic development in fairytale-dom. There are numerous versions of “Sleeping Beauty,” stemming back even before Charles Perrault’s from 1697, but the fairy who casts an angry spell on the baby princess, dooming her to prick her finger, has always been, well, just nasty. But now, 55 years after Disney introduced the character named Maleficent in its 1959 classic film – and colored her skin an eerie green – the studio is back with a live-action (not to mention 3D) Maleficent who’s more superheroine than evil fairy. Think Maleficent by way of Lara Croft. Director Robert Stromberg and screenwriter Linda Woolverton take us back to the fairy’s youth to better understand her. One day she meets a young man from that other, darker world, where humans live. The two form a strong bond. But the ugliest human emotions – jealousy and ambition – will intervene. Young Stefan will grow into the power-hungry older Stefan (the wild-eyed South African actor Sharlto Copley.) And his stunning betrayal of Maleficent will instantly harden her. Alas, the story’s still all about a guy, in the end. But we digress. “Maleficent” is surely targeted to the same audience – young and female – which has so lovingly embraced “Frozen” and its appealing message of female solidarity and empowerment. But “Frozen” felt clever, charming, and fresh. “Maleficent,” less so. Part of this is due, paradoxically, to Jolie’s star wattage. Don’t get us wrong: she’s the best thing about the movie, and always worth watching. But it blunts the effectiveness of the narrative if we can never quite believe Maleficent is bad. And frankly, the other characters are simply not that interesting. The best scenes Aurora has, in fact, are when she’s a gurgling baby and then, adorably, a toddler, played by none other than 5-year-old Vivienne Jolie-Pitt. In the end, “Maleficent” is fun for its appealing visuals – especially in the forest – and for watching Jolie. But that’s not enough to make the whole film interesting. As the minutes tick by, you might even start feeling a bit like Sleeping Beauty herself comes to feel: drowsy. – The Associated Press

• Friday, June 6, 2014

in a time loop in a war with an alien race. His skills increase as he faces the same brutal combat scenarios, and his union with a Special Forces warrior gets him closer and closer to defeating the enemy. RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence, language and brief suggestive material TIME: 1 hour, 43 minutes VERDICT: The time-shifting sci-fi thriller “Edge of Tomorrow” has perfectly encapsulated what it is to be a summertime moviegoer. We’re dropped into a battlefield of digital effects with the fate of the world at stake. Torrents of gunfire and explosions surround. Some alien clonks us over the head. We black out, and it all happens again. And again. “Edge of Tomorrow,” in which Tom Cruise plays an officer who continually relives a day of combat against extraterrestrials, probably isn’t a commentary on the repetitiveness of today’s blockbusters. Its star, after all, has been the unchanging, unstoppable avatar of big summer movies. But in the film directed by Doug Liman (“Swingers,” “The Bourne Identity”), the action-star persona of Cruise is put into a phantasmagorical blender. As military marketer Maj. William Cage, he’s thrown into battle against his will by an unsympathetic general (the excellent Brendan Gleeson), and then finds himself stuck in a mysterious time loop. Cruise dies dozens of times over and over, often in comical ways. Does this sound like a great movie, or what? The selling point of “Edge of Tomorrow” may indeed be seeing one of Hollywood’s most divisive icons reduced to Wile E. Coyote. He’s like a real-life version of the video game “Contra,” with the code of seemingly endless life. Dying again and again, Cruise has rarely been so likable. Based on the 2004 Japanese novella “All You Need Is Kill,” “Edge of Tomorrow” begins in the de rigueur fashion of news clips that catch us up on five years of alien invasion that has – with historical symmetry – encompassed Europe and left the beaches of northern France as the primary point of battle. Cage is dumped on an aircraft carrier, callously sent into battle by a commanding officer (a very fun Bill Paxton, spouting lines like, “Battle is the great redeemer” in a Kentucky accent), and outfitted in

a high-tech exoskeleton he doesn’t know how to operate. When he lands on Normandy or thereabouts, he’s an easy target for the aliens, dubbed Mimics. The Mimics resemble black, scampering dreadlock wigs or electrified Rorschach Tests. When a particularly big one swallows Cage, his day resets. This is “Groundhog Day” with guns. This time around, though, it’s not Sonny and Cher that wake him up each day but a drill sergeant calling him “maggot.” Whereas Bill Murray got to learn how to play the piano and fall in love, Cage must become a better killer. He strives to make it through the battle, getting a little further each time before dying. He quickly pairs with the most celebrated fighter in the war (Emily Blunt), who recognizes his strange predicament. “Edge of Tomorrow,” which was penned by Christopher McQuarrie, Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth, entertains in its narrative playfulness – another entry in the burgeoning fad of puzzle-making sci-fi, as seen in “Inception” and “Looper.” Few filmmakers have Liman’s knack for smart plotting; his much earlier “Go” inventively connected three intertwined stories. The zippiness does fade in the second half of “Edge of Tomorrow.” And the title (perhaps the most belabored way possible of saying “tonight”) also could use a replay. But among countless sequels and remakes, the high-concept “Edge of Tomorrow” – both a Tom Cruise celebration and parody – is the right kind of a rerun.– The Associated

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

A crazy deal for trump control


A.J. Kitt, who used to be a top downhill skier, said, “You have no control over what the other guy does. You only have control over what you do.” That is usually true at the bridge table, but sometimes you can control your opponent by leaving him with no winning option – as in this deal. South is in seven spades. West leads the club ace. South ruffs and cashes the spade ace, expecting to claim one nanosecond later. But when East discards a club, suddenly West seems to have a certain trump trick. Is there any chance? North’s rebid was a double negative, showing a very bad hand, either the traditional two no-trump or the modern three clubs, according to partnership preference. Then South, confident that North could not have an ace, jumped to seven hearts to offer a choice of grand slams. North gave preference to spades, never having expected to make three bids in the auction. The only way to bring home the contract is to lead side-suit winners through West. When he ruffs one, dummy overruffs, and declarer draws trumps, then having the same number of spades (three) as West. However, West will only ruff if he has no alternative. He will discard as often as possible. Here, if South immediately runs his hearts, West will pitch his diamond and later ruff the diamond ace. As declarer can throw only four of dummy’s five diamonds on the hearts, he must cash one diamond trick first. Then he plays his hearts. Eventually, West will concede.

ADVICE Sister’s behavior can’t be blamed on deceased dad Dear Abby: I’m the middle child. Our father died in the Gulf War. None of us really knew him, but my younger sister, “Delia,” has no memory of him at all. She has been acting out for years now, and has broken our mother’s heart more times than I can count. Whenever she messes up, she blames it on not knowing our father and the life she “could” have led. It has been 20 years, Abby! The past is the past. Delia continues to ruin her future and blame our mom. I think Delia may have a chemical imbalance, or just never dealt with our father’s death. How do you convince someone to get help? – Drained In Delaware Dear Drained: I’m sorry for your family’s loss, but we are all responsible for our own behavior and our own emotions. You can’t force “help” on your dysfunctional sister. Before she’ll be willing to accept that she needs it, she

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips will have to accept that SHE has been responsible for her own mistakes and behavior. If your father had lived, her life might not have been any different than it is. The person who COULD use some professional help might be your mother. Counseling might help her to quit trying to rescue her adult daughter, or blaming herself for the problems Delia has created for herself. I’m not saying it will be easy – letting go rarely is. But it might improve her emotional and physical health. Dear Abby: I am an attractive, physically fit, well-educated, 41-year-old divorced woman with two young children. Recently a co-worker I have known for several months asked me to

accompany him on a weekend hiking trip. (He’s 23.) After a few conversations, he confessed that he was “deeply in love” with me and hoped we could begin a “serious relationship.” Abby, he’s mature, good-looking, financially independent and has a great sense of humor. I’m attracted to him. Should I pursue this relationship, or wait until I’m attracted to someone closer to my own age? Help! – A.S. In San Diego Dear A.S.: Whoa! Slow down. Regardless of the age difference, an overnight first date (with a co-worker, yet) seems like an awfully speedy beginning to me. If you’re smart, start with a coffee date, graduate to a dinner date, and pursue the relationship from there. Only time will tell if this is the real thing. • Write Dear Abby at www.

Vaccine reduces shingles risk in adults over 60 years old Dear Doctor K: I have never had chickenpox. Do I still need to get a shingles vaccine? Dear Reader: Not everyone knows the connection between chickenpox (a childhood disease) and shingles (a condition that usually hits adults). So let’s begin with that. Chickenpox and shingles are both caused by the same virus: varicella-zoster virus (VZV). Once you have had chickenpox, VZV remains in your body’s nerve tissues for the rest of your life, alive but inactive. But it can be reactivated later in life, causing shingles. Not long ago, nearly every kid got chickenpox. (I was an exception; my sister got it, but I didn’t.) Today, fewer kids get it, thanks to the varicella vaccine (Varivax), which was approved in 1995. Shingles is also on the decline, thanks to the Zostavax vaccine, which was approved for older adults in 2006. After you are first infected with the virus, it takes up permanent residence in your nerves. Specifically, it finds its way to the knots of nerve cells on each side of your spinal cord, called the dorsal root ganglia. The nerve fibers that sense pain in your skin lead to these ganglia.

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff When the virus reactivates (or “reawakens”) in the dorsal root ganglia, it travels down the nerves that lead to the skin. This causes a burning or tingling sensation or a shooting pain. Your skin may be extremely sensitive -- so much so that you cannot stand clothing touching or rubbing the area. After a few days, the virus reaches the skin. Painful, itchy blisters may cluster in patches, or form a continuous line that roughly follows the path of the infected nerve. That’s the usual pattern of shingles: first a few days of the unpleasant sensation, then the rash. About 10 percent of adults who get shingles experience post-herpetic neuralgia. This is long-term pain in the area of skin where blisters occurred, even after the rash has healed completely. This condition may last for months or even years. So, to your question: Since you never had chickenpox, should you get the shingles vaccine? Yes. There are several reasons. First, not everyone who becomes in-

fected with VZV gets chickenpox. You may have been infected, and thus may be at risk for shingles. The vaccine reduces your risk of developing shingles by about 50 percent if you are 60 or older. (There is some controversy as to whether the vaccine is as effective in people aged 50-59.) The vaccine also reduces the intensity and duration of symptoms in people who do get shingles despite having received the vaccine. Although you only asked about the shingles vaccine, there’s another vaccine you should discuss with your doctor. Even though I said that you could have been infected with VZV and not developed chickenpox, it also is possible that you really never have been infected with VZV. A simple blood test can tell you whether you have VZV in your body. If not, you are at risk for getting chickenpox as an adult, which can be a serious illness. You should talk to your doctor about getting the vaccine to protect you against chickenpox.

Teen sexually harassed by 40-year-old boss Dr. Wallace: I’m 17 and work on Friday evening and all day Saturday at a nationally well-known fast-food restaurant. I rather enjoy the work, and I love earning the money. My only problem is my manager who happens to be about 40 years old. He is married, and he is a father of two children, but that doesn’t stop him from making suggestive sexual remarks to me all the time. Another girl who works with me said that I could have him arrested for sexual harassment. I don’t want him arrested – I just want him to behave himself like a gentleman, not a 40-year-old jerk! The next time he makes suggestive remarks, I’m going to tell him that if he continues his unacceptable behavior that I will contact his wife and tell her about her husband’s conduct with me. I want to handle this problem by myself. If I tell my parents, I would be forced to quit, and I want to continue working here. Also, my dad is a “hot-head” and probably would take matters into his own hands and beat him up. I’ve heard the phrase “sexual harassment” quite a bit lately, but I’m not exactly sure what all it refers to. I’d appreciate knowing. – Nameless, Las Vegas, Nev. Dear Nameless: Sexual harassment can be either obvious or subtle. It includes unasked for and unwelcome sexual attention, remarks, noises, stares and touches. It can also involve unwanted requests or demands

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace for sexual favors. Often, sexual harassment is the result of one person using his (or her) power to take sexual advantage of another person. Sexual harassment is never right, and in many cases, it’s against the law. A victim of sexual harassment has the right to take action and must never feel guilty or ashamed. The main thing to do is to get it out in the open right away and talk to someone who can help do something about it. It could be more effective if you contacted the owner of the restaurant or the corporate office. Dr. Wallace: We were having a heated discussion in our health class about teens and smoking. The teacher asked the class this question: “Who smokes more, teenage girls or teenage boys? Naturally, the boys said that girls smoke more, and the girls thought more boys smoked than girls. Can you settle the debate? – Andy, Rochester, N.Y. Dear Andy: According to the American Cancer Society, 10 percent of all young people ages 12 to 17 smoke cigarettes. Girls (11.6 percent) had a higher percentage of smokers than boys (9.3 percent). The good news is that the percentage of young smokers has decreased every year for the past 12 years. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@

TODAY’S BIRTHDAYS: Diego Velazquez (1599-1660), painter; Robert Englund (1947), actor; Harvey Fierstein (1952), actor; photo

Juliette Binoche (left) and Clive Owen star in the romantic dramedy “Words and Pictures.”

‘Words and Pictures’: Actors freshen up stale story By STEPHANIE MERRY The Washington Post The roles of Jack Marcus and Dina Delsanto don’t require the heavy lifting of Academy-Award-nominated actors. The stock characters at the center of the romantic dramedy “Words and Pictures” are an alcoholic writer and a painter with an artist’s standoffish temperament, respectively. Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche have done similar, better-written parts before (see “Hemingway & Gellhorn” and “The Lovers on the Bridge” for proof), and they could probably sleepwalk their way to a paycheck here. But to their credit — and to the movie’s great benefit — they don’t. Binoche even created the paintings herself in the film. And the two conjure a charming trifle out of an over-long story that often teeters on trite. Owen’s Jack has been teaching at a Northeastern prep school for years by the time Dina takes a job there. He’s a good teacher, but he isn’t big on rules, which is a forgivable offense for a celebrated author. But with alcoholism interfering with his productivity, he

finds his job in jeopardy. Dina has troubles, too, though hers aren’t self-inflicted. She is ostensibly taking a sabbatical from her high-profile Manhattan career, but the truth shows in the cane she uses to get around: She can barely hold a brush since her diagnosis of debilitating rheumatoid arthritis. As soon as the pair meet in the teacher’s lounge, where Jack tries to engage Dina in a word game that his colleagues have grown weary of, the chemistry is clear. But the sparks aren’t just romantic. The teachers begin to inspire each other creatively, too, especially after Jack manufactures a war between visual art and literary craft that the entire school becomes invested in. Aspects of “Words and Pictures” feel like they’re from another era, whether it’s the “His Girl Friday”-style repartee or the overly sentimental music that pops up between scenes. Veteran director Fred Schepisi still uses some of the methods he did when helming “Roxanne” (1987) and “I.Q.,” (1994), and his take on filmmaking, not to mention romance, doesn’t always feel fresh. Of course, the baby-boomer audience for

this movie may not mind the throwback vibe, especially amid summer releases that are comparatively dumbed down. Besides, none of the movie’s faults can undo the power of Binoche and Owen. Their interactions look so naturalistic that they seem unscripted. And while both characters have hard edges, the actors balance the flaws with charisma and an infectious passion for their respective art forms. Even when Jack commits what many would consider to be the greatest of literary sins, Owen manages to make him sympathetic; and even after Dina basically dares her students, co-workers and even her sister not to like her, her redeeming qualities are never obscured. The plot may meander into some unnecessary diversions, but the actors remain invested. And if they believe it, pros that they are, why shouldn’t we?

• “Words and Pictures” received three out of four stars and is rated PG13 for sexual material, including nude sketches, strong language and some mature thematic material. The film runs 111 minutes.

± 8 p.m. HALL Movie: Looking for Mr. Right: Literary license, indeed. A struggling writer sells a novel featuring a character patterned on the man of her dreams. There’s a catch, though: The publisher wants to market the book. as factual, not fictional, and send the author and her new love out together to promote it. ± 8 p.m. on TRAVEL Ghost Adventures: In this new episode, Zak, Nick and Aaron head to San Diego to check out what’s reputed to be the most haunted house in the U.S. — the Whaley House, built on top of the land where the gallows of Old Town San Diego once sat.
