Sentencing underway for truck driver in I-55 crash that killed 5 By BRIAN STANLEY

bstanley@shawmedia.com JOLIET – Sentencing proceedings began Wednesday for an Indiana truck driver who fell asleep at the wheel and killed five people in a 2014 crash on Interstate 55. Judge Dave Carlson’s courtroom was packed and the doors were left open to allow about 50 other spectators to listen from the hallway as relatives of those killed testified how the crash has affect- Francisco ed them. Francisco Espi- Espinal-Quiroz nal-Quiroz, 53, did not sob like many in the courtroom did, but his eyes appeared teary as he sat at the defense table. At 2:15 p.m. July 21, 2014, Espinal-Quiroz was traveling 15 mph faster than the speed limit when his red Freightliner slammed into three vehicles backed up in the northbound lanes while traffic was stalled by construction work on the Des Plaines River bridge in Channahon Township. Espinal-Quiroz had the cruise control set at 65 mph, according to the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office. The truck struck a 2012 Kia Soul that contained Timothy Osburn, 64, of Urbana; his wife, Kimberly K. Britton, 43; and their daughter, Piper Britton, 11. It also hit a 2008 Dodge Avenger occupied by

at 2:30 a.m. but wrote in his logbook he’d started at 6:15 a.m. Espinal-Quiroz has been blind in one eye since 1984 and driven trucks since 1991 with a vision waiver from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. His license was renewed the day before the crash. Moses Blopleh testified Wednesday, describing being sent to three different hospitals to see his injured children and then discovering the next day his wife had died. Blopleh’s children still have physical and emotional scars from the crash, he testified. “Uli,” a mother of four, was a wonderful German lady, who made great schnitzel, could play piano and accordion, and also was “an accomplished roofer and carpenter,” her husband testified. The couple had been together 23 years. Palacios worked at Rovanco Piping Systems, was very generous to her children and loved spoiling her grandchildren. “I got married recently, but my mother was not there because of you,” Joshua Johnke told Espinal-Quiroz. “My sister had a baby that will never know her grandmother because of you.” “I forgive you. I can’t speak for my siblings,” Johnke said. Palacios’ and Blopleh’s families have filed lawsuits against Espinal-Quiroz and the trucking company. Sentencing will continue Thursday.

Monee man gets 7 years in DUI crash that killed Mokena couple By BRIAN STANLEY

bstanley@shawmedia.com JOLIET – A Monee man was sentenced Wednesday to spend seven years in prison for driving under the influence in a 2013 crash that killed an elderly Mokena couple. John L. Wiesch, 43, could have received probation, but Judge Sarah Jones did not find the necessary “extraordinary John L. circumstances” applied Wiesch to Wiesch, who is raising two young daughters as a

Vicky L. Palacios, 54, of Coal City; and a 2000 Chevrolet Astrovan in which Ulrike Blopleh, 48, of Channahon was riding with three of her children. The Osburn-Britton family was heading to the airport to meet relatives for a family vacation. Kimberly and Piper Britton died at the scene while Timothy Osburn remained in a coma for two weeks before succumbing to his injuries. “My first thought was [I had to] get to Chicago because Dad cannot wake up hearing about Kim and Piper from a nurse,” Paige Osburn testified. “My second thought was hoping he would die [because] it would’ve killed him anyway.” Tim Osburn enjoyed cooking and writing poetry. Kimberly Britton liked to draw and would do anything to help her family, and Piper Britton loved animals, going to the Field Museum and watching Japanese toy commercials on YouTube. “I do truly feel for [Espinal-Quiroz]; he made a mistake and it tore apart three families. But the logbooks, that’s what keeps me from forgiveness. He knew he wasn’t supposed to [drive that long] but he did it anyway,” Paige Osburn said. Espinal-Quiroz has pleaded guilty to five counts of reckless homicide and one count of falsifying his logbook. As part of the plea agreement, prosecutors will ask Carlson to sentence him to 15 years in prison. Espinal-Quiroz started work that day

single father. Wiesch, who operates a masonry business, faced six to 28 years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of aggravated driving under the influence. On Sept. 26, 2013, Wiesch’s Ford F-250 ran a stop sign at LaGrange and Pauling roads near Frankfort and struck the side of a 2013 Toyota Avalon. William Slager, 84, died at the scene, and his wife, Harriet Slager, 82, died from her injuries the next day. According to prosecutors, Wiesch initially told police someone else was driving his vehicle. The Slagers had been married for 64 years. Despite prosecutors’ objections, Jones

allowed Wiesch one week to finalize arrangements for custody of his 13- and 9-year-old daughters. “He has to make sure he has in place a system for his daughters and ... their living conditions,” defense attorney Glenn Jazwiec told the judge. “How do you [really] prepare for this?” “There was a lot of time to be prepared for this eventuality,” Jones said. “It’s a hard struggle for me [to see] since the day he pled guilty, you’re telling me zero has been done.” Wiesch acknowledged to Jones he understands he will be sent to prison next week.

IMMIGRATION POLICY EFFECT City officials say Joliet police will not question immigration status By BOB OKON

bokon@shawmedia.com JOLIET – Several hundred people on Wednesday packed a church hall with dozens of questions about the potential impact of new federal immigration policies on their lives. The meeting was called by Mayor Bob O’Dekirk to deal with questions he has been fielding and rumors spread on social media about what role Joliet police would have in immigration enforcement in the aftermath of President Donald Trump’s executive orders. O’Dekirk and Police Chief Brian

Benton repeatedly said the city police have no role and do not question people’s immigration status. But questions persisted from the predominately Hispanic gathering at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. People wanted to know whether Joliet police would question them about their citizenship, what would happen to children if their parents are deported and what should they do if U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement came to their door. “What people are scared of right now are the raids,” Alma Montero of Joliet said. “Are you guys going to block ICE from doing raids in Joliet

Joliet,” O’Dekirk said, adding that the city has not been contacted about any raids being planned. But he also said it’s not likely the federal government would notify Joliet.

Sanctuary cities

O’Dekirk started out the meeting telling the audience that Joliet does not intend to become a sanctuary city. Pointing to last weekend’s ICE raids in Chicago, a sanctuary city, the mayor said such a proclamation would only draw attention in Joliet and offer no protection to residents.

“There is no one single bullet, no one single ‘must-have,’ for our administration. ...”

By JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press

SPRINGFIELD – Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner gave more specifics Wednesday on what tax hikes he’d accept to end Illinois’ nearly two-year budget stalemate, enduring derisive laughter from Democratic legislators who shelved his first two spending plans. Rauner told the General Assembly during an afternoon budget address that spending cuts “need to be real – no smoke and mirrors” and insisted his plan would balance the budget. However, as it stands, it would leave a $7 billion hole without matching revenue. If enacted as introduced Wednesday, the state would spend nearly $40 billion, 22 percent more than the $33 billion in revenue the plan counts on, according to budget documents released after the speech. Sidestepping specifics, Rauner used his third budget presentation to signal his willingness to accept tax increases. He struck an upbeat tone, praising “real progress” the Senate had made in negotiating a compromise plan. It addresses regulatory changes Rauner has demanded for two years but also an income-tax increase to slice into a multibillion-dollar deficit. Skittish lawmakers staring down a Senate tax vote had urged the governor to weigh in. Rauner said that, as a guideline, he’s open to a tax on services, such as car repairs or haircuts, but would nix increased taxes on food, medicine or retirement income. “There is no one single bullet, no one single ‘must-have,’ for our administration,” Rauner said. “But for the future of our state, change must be real, not just a newspaper headline.”

Gov. Bruce Rauner to General Assembly

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner delivers his budget address to a joint session of the General Assembly at the Capitol on Wednesday in Springfield. But Democrats who hold majorities in both the House and Senate were unimpressed. “There was no real meat in what he was saying today,” said Rep. Greg Harris, a Chicago Democrat and House budget negotiator. “We heard he plans to spend much more money.” Illinois has been without a budget since July 2015, two months after Rauner took office, the nation’s longest state budget stalemate in nearly a century. Recalling the length of the stalemate, rife with accusations on both sides, Rauner said: “This isn’t about pointing fingers or assigning blame.” That prompted a round of laughter from Democrats in the chamber.

Rauner has insisted that a budget agreement include regulatory and political changes such as cost-cutting restrictions on workers’ compensation and term limits for officeholders. The Senate plan includes some of his priorities, but also an increase in the personal income tax rate to 4.99 percent from 3.75 percent. He said he wants a permanent property-tax freeze, not one limited to two years as the Senate suggests. He said that’s only fair if lawmakers approve a permanent increase in the personal income tax rate from 3.75 percent to 4.99 percent. Even without an annual spending plan, state government continues to operate largely because of court orders

and intermittent appropriations by lawmakers. But the picture is bleak. Without action, Illinois will have a $5.3 billion deficit when the current fiscal year ends June 30. There is a backlog of $11 billion in overdue bills. State pension programs are $130 billion short of what they need to pay promised benefits to retired and current employees. Rauner proposes spending of $37.3 billion, but only after saving $2.5 billion with changes to state-employee health insurance, selling the James R. Thompson state office building in Chicago, making procurement more efficient and other changes – most of which requires legislative approval. And if he achieves those cuts, there’s still a hole of $4.6 billion. Budget director Scott Harry said the governor hopes that will be covered, with help from the Legislature, by economic growth, more spending cuts, and tax increases that come out of the Senate compromise. “The final result must be a good deal for taxpayers and job creators; a grand bargain that truly balances the budget once and for all, and really moves the needle when it comes to job creation,” Rauner said.

Joliet-area legislators react to Rauner’s budget address By MIKE MALLORY

mmallory@shawmedia.com Despite technical difficulties that cut off his prompter, Gov. Bruce Rauner delivered his annual budget address Wednesday. Opinions among area legislators on the address varied. Democrats were concerned with what Rauner said, while Republicans seemed encouraged. State Sen. Pat McGuire, D-Joliet, said he’s afraid the budget address made passage of the senate’s grand bargain budget proposal a more difficult task.

The grand bargain, negotiated in recent months by senate leaders, comes with an income tax hike and a twoyear property tax freeze. But Rauner called for a permanent property tax Pat McGuire freeze Wednesday, and D-Joliet some feel the governor is asking for more after senate leaders reached common ground. “That was shown today when he asked for the permanent property tax freeze,” McGuire said. “There’s no doubt we need to address property tax

problems, but senate leaders negotiated a twoyear freeze. You might want to ask local units of government what a permanent freeze would mean to their ability to provide services to local Natalie Manley residents.” State Rep. Natalie D-Joliet Manley, D-Joliet, stated in a news release that children, seniors and working-class families deserve better. “I have been willing to meet the governor halfway on a number of issues

when his agenda and the concerns of the people I represent overlap,” Manley stated. “I’ve voted repeatedly for property-tax freezes, worker’s compensation reform and independent redistricting. Now it’s time for the governor to meet the people of our district halfway, and get serious about a budget that provides for the needs of middle-class and struggling families, the elderly and our children.” State Sen. Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant, D-Shorewood, said she was disappointed in Rauner’s address.

Joliet Central students use technology to help children with prosthetic needs By FELIX SARVER

fsarver@shawmedia.com JOLIET – A Joliet Central High School student club is creating prosthetics for two children in need of them. The Joliet Central Engineers Club has been developing prosthetics for a 12-year-old girl who’s missing a limb a bit past her elbow and an 11-year-old boy who is missing all of his fingers and part of his palm on one hand. The student club – made up of students Gabriel Hernandez, Jack Lewis, Taylyn Paris, Emiliano Palmerin and Miguel Guzman – uses computers and 3-D printer technology to design and create prosthetics. The students also work with global nonprofit e-NABLE. “They’re going above and beyond some of the things that I’m showing them in class,” said teacher Dale West, who is the club’s sponsor. For each of the projects, the club communicates with the parents of the children, sending them designs of prosthetics to gather accurate measure-

These renderings by Joliet Central Engineers Club show a palm prosthetic (left) and a gauntlet prosthetic (right.) ments and customize them to how the children want them. “We’re communicating back and forth constantly with parents of both children,” Hernandez said. The Joliet Central Engineers Club is an e-NABLE community chapter, and as a result, people can find it and reach out for customized prosthetic needs. The e-NABLE website has a global map

of community chapters that create free 3-D printed hands and arms. Local chapters are critical because they work face to face with communities “in a shared language and cultural context,” according to the e-NABLE website. “Now that we’re accepted and we’re acknowledged as a chapter, we’re getting more work,” Lewis said.

The project involving the girl is pending as the Joliet Central Engineers Club plans to have a conference call with the child and her mother regarding the prosthetic. Because of how extensive the project is, the club spoke with Jon Schull, the founder of e-NABLE, who recommended the students work on adding an extension to the girl’s current prosthesis that would allow for thumb movement, West said. For the project involving the boy, West said the boy’s doctor recommended his mother search for 3-D printed options because other prosthetics can be expensive and he’s still a growing and active child. If the prosthetic breaks, it can always be reprinted, West said. West said the students are receiving a real-world experience and applying what they learn in the classroom to help others. They’re also documenting their work and sharing it on social media, such as Twitter and Facebook. “I think that’s really good experience,” he said.

Wilmington to acquire land on South Island By MIKE MALLORY

a natural attraction like the Kankakee River, which was designated as a National Water Trail last year, will draw tourists, support local businesses and leverage Wilmington’s uniqueness in the region,” Mayor Marty Orr said in a news release. According to Openlands, owning the land now gives Wilmington flexibility and control in shaping the future of the site, and plans include developing a marquis gateway. “Openlands is pleased to partner with Wilmington on this opportunity

WILMINGTON – The city of Wilmington appears to be moving closer to its vision for South Island along the Kankakee River. The Wilmington City Council voted Feb. 7 to finalize the acquisition of land on the island, which is connected to downtown Wilmington through Route 66. By working with Openlands, an accredited land trust, Wilmington was able to access grant funding from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to buy lots at the entry area to South Island Park off Route 66. Openlands bought the lots in 2012 for $505,000. The city will reimburse Openlands $280,000. Now, everything will come full circle as Wilmington reimburses Openlands and the city takes the title of the property, City Administrator Frank Koehler said. It’s a project the city has been working on for years. “It’s part of an effort to begin some improvements to South Island,” Koehler said, adding that nothing specific is planned yet as the most recent site plan for the island was completed in 2013. Old houses that were on the acquired land were taken down by the city. Koehler said the city is working with

The Salon Professional Academy offers advice for under-eye bags SPONSORED BY

By Denise Freese There are various causes for under-eye bags and dark circles. While the conditions can be hereditary, for most people they are caused by a lackofsleep,toomuchalcohol,toomuchsodium in their diet, or allergies. There are strategies to reducepuffybagsunderneaththeeyes,andthere are makeup options to help minimize the bags and dark circles. Allergies can cause fluid to build up under the eye, as can sensitivity to alcohol that can lead to inflammation. Alcohol widens blood vessels, which can make dark circles look more prominent. Taking allergy relief medicine can help lessen puffiness, and drinking a lot of water throughout the day can reverse the dehydration caused by alcohol.

Cut as much salt out of your diet as possible, to reduce water retention. Sleep on your back, using an additional pillow, so gravity won’t cause fluid to accumulate under your eyes. Remove your makeup every night, and use a moisturizing eye cream to rehydrate the thin skin below your eyes.

Use sunscreen to protect your face and the skin around your eyes. If you smoke, try to quit; smoking leads to dry, weakened skin and wrinkles. A cold eye mask or other compress, such as chilled spoons, cucumber slices, or tea bags can help reduce puffiness. Try keeping your eye cream in the refrigerator to keep it chilled. If bags and dark circles persist, an eye cream with caffeine can help tighten skin, help with drainage, and reduce puffiness. A light-diffusing concealer in the areas surrounding the eyes helps minimize the appearance of bags and dark circles. An orange-based concealer may help counteract the blue undertone of dark circles. A concealer that matches your skin tone should be applied in the shadow of the bag under your eye, not on the bag itself.

JOLIET – Two Joliet Junior College students are the first recipients of a scholarship endowment thanks to CITGO Lemont Refinery. Students Kayla Storme and Matthew Lane were recognized as the 2017 recipients of a CITGO scholarship Wednesday by officials from the college, CITGO and Will County. The students will each receive a $2,000 scholarship. “I’ve gotten scholarships in the past and I know every little bit actually does, help,” said Storme, who’s majoring in operations engineering with the goal of a career in chemical engineering. The scholarships were established through a $250,000 endowment from CITGO with the JJC Foundation. The endowment is part of the company’s CITGO STEM Talent Pipeline program to increase access to opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math. The CITGO scholarship will be awarded annually to JJC students in one of the following majors: • Process control instrumentation • Operations engineering technology

ties, according to JJC. Lane, who’s pursuing associate degrees in industrial maintenance technology and electrical/electronic automated systems, said the scholarship will help him pay for classes and books. He said he works at Caterpillar full-time and helps support his family, which includes two children. “It saved me and our family,” he said about the scholarship. Pete Colarelli, CITGO government and public affairs manager, said the scholarship came about through conversations between the company and Will County Executive Larry Walsh Sr. on how CITGO could help the community. “[Walsh] thought that one of those ideas might be to establish a financial mechanism by which students who are interested in a career in the industrial field could get that little bit of a bump to get them through so they would be ready for a job at CITGO and other industrial facilities in the area,” Colarelli said. CITGO and JJC have been longtime partners, Colarelli said. “When CITGO has come to the college in the past and challenged them to help us to develop a workforce, they’ve responded,” he said.

MC Sports begins liquidation sales By BOB OKON

bokon@shawmedia.com JOLIET – MC Sports, which has a store in the Louis Joliet Mall, plans to begin liquidation sales at all stores. The Grand Rapids, Michigan-based sporting goods chain has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Its closing would mark the second time in two years that a sporting goods chain with a store in Joliet went out of business. Sports Authority, which had a store near the mall, shut down last year. MC Sports President and CEO Bruce Ullery in a news release stated that liquidation sales at all 68 of the company’s stores is “the only alternative to address our immediate liquidity issues.” Ullery stated MC Sports also is pursuing “alternative financing and going-concern sale options under the protections of Chapter 11 bankruptcy.”

MC Sports announced bankruptcy Tuesday. In its news release, the company stated that MC Sports, like others in the sporting goods industry, has faced growing competition as well as challenges brought on by direct vendor sales to consumers. The retail district around the Louis Joliet Mall had three chain sporting goods stores when Dick’s Sporting Goods opened in October 2015. Sports Authority announced it was shutting down the subsequent March. Sports Authority also filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, which is often used to settle debts while keeping a company in business, before shutting down. MC Sports has stores in seven states, as well as other Illinois locations in DeKalb, Rockford, Peru, Bloomington and East Peoria. The company was founded in 1946.

SHOREWOOD – The Shorewood Village Board took on final approval of tax increment financing district proposals Tuesday, after holding a public hearing Jan. 24. Three approvals came to the board Tuesday for a first read, but the board was confident that the proposed plans were solid and ready to move forward, so second reads were waived and all three motions were passed, with board member Dan Anderson abstaining because he owns property in the area that was the subject of the motions. A TIF district is a blighted or underdeveloped area in which any increase in tax base value from development is returned to the district to generate improvements. Village attorney Dave Silverman explained each approval to the board. The first was for the ordinance approving the tax increment redevelopment plan and redevelopment project for the Jefferson Street and Route 59 redevelopment project area. Silverman said detailed projects have not been scheduled for the TIF redevelopment area, but the ordinance approves the broad plan that has been set forth by the village and attorney Mary Thompson of Kane, McKenna and Associates of Chicago, which studied the area and pinpointed the greatest needs to the board during the hearing last month. “The background and primary focus of this TIF is to help develop commercial retail,” Thompson said at the hearing. “When you do that, it contributes significantly to the health of the community and potential redevelopment for under-utilized properties. We have several in this area. Not going to pick any out in particular, but you know where

there are vacancies and difficulties getting in and out, ingress and egress into certain shopping centers, a library that is kind of buried. All of those kinds of things are going to be addressed.” The second approval was for an ordinance designating the Jefferson Street and Route 59 redevelopment project area as a redevelopment project area pursuant to the Tax Increment Allocation Redevelopment Act. Silverman explained that the ordinance allowed the village to designate the specific area in question as a TIF area. Maps of the area included in the TIF district can be found on the village website at vil.shorewood.il.us under the “proposed TIF district” link. The last of the three TIF ordinances approved was the ordinance adopting tax increment allocation financing for the Jefferson Street and Route 59 TIF redevelopment project area. Silverman said the ordinance approves the TIF district and directs the county clerk on how to collect TIF funds and turn them over to the village. Also Tuesday, Mayor Rick Chapman asked the board to approve an amendment of an ordinance regarding the hours of operation for certain liquor license classes. Chapman said bars, restaurants and package sales must stop at 2 a.m. “We are moving liquor licenses to stop at 2 a.m. to level the playing field across the board,” Chapman said. The motion was approved unanimously. Community Development Director Karen James said census workers are currently in training and will be out in the community to acquire numbers Friday. The process was expected to take about 20 days, but because of a federal hiring freeze, there are fewer workers than originally planned, so 10 days have been added to the estimated finish date.

Will County clerk seeks election judges

JOLIET – Will County Clerk Nancy Schultz Voots is seeking additional election judges to work the consolidated

election April 4, according to a news release from Voots’ office. The clerk’s office is seeking Democratic and Republican election judges, especially in the southern portion of Will County – Wilmington, Godley, Symerton, Custer Park, Wesley and Braidwood. The number of Republican and Democratic election judges at each polling place is determined by the average party turnout in the three most recent Illinois governor’s races. Before being assigned to an election, election judges are required to attend a 2½-hour training class. Upon completion of training, election judges are paid $150 for the day they are assigned to work a polling place, including mileage reimbursement. Election judges can earn extra compensation if they help pick up and drop off election supplies. Election judge training classes are held from 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays. Interested people can apply at www.thewillcountyclerk.com. Applicants must be U.S. citizens, live in Will County and be entitled to vote at the next election or be high school seniors in good standing.

Continued from page 4 “He continues to place blame on legislators,” she stated in a news release. “He called off working groups, he stopped leadership meetings, and he halted the work being done in the senate. His speech today was not a budget address. It was a lecture without any substance.” Meanwhile, state Jennifer Rep. Mark Batinick, BertinoR-Plainfield, said it’s Tarrant clearer than ever the D-Shorewood state needs more than an income tax increase as Census estimates indicate more people have moved out of Illinois last year than any other state in the country. “We have a pathway Mark out of this, it’s whether Batinick we take it or not,” Bati- R-Plainfield nick said. State Rep. Emily McAsey, D-Lockport, said Rauner has evaded his constitutional duty of proposing a balanced budget for the thirdstraight year, causing devastating effects to services that the state’s most vulnerable residents rely on, along with $5.5 million in new debt.

State Rep. Larry Walsh Jr., D-Elwood, said Rauner has proposed an unbalanced budget with the “same old campaign speeches.” Walsh said he counted Emily 13 things in Rauner’s adMcAsey dress that would require D-Lockport increased spending. Walsh said with $33 billion in revenue and $38 billion in necessities, legislators need to sit down and talk about careful cuts and streamlining government. Larry Walsh Jr. “But those necessiD-Elwood ties haven’t gone away,” he said. State Sen. Sue Rezin, R-Morris, said Rauner’s upbeat tone and optimism is what’s needed from everyone in the legislature. Sue Rezin “It’s important to R-Morris note, due to the state’s dire financial situation and the fact we have a two party government, the reality is, the solution to a balanced budget will include things not everyone will like,” Rezin stated in a news release. “I want to stress, however, we owe it to taxpayers that reforms and cuts must be the overwhelming aspects of any budget solution.”

• IMMIGRATION

“I’m telling you that any mayor that says ‘This is a sanctuary city and nothing bad is going to happen to you’ is lying,” O’Dekirk said. But Elizabeth Cervantes, a co-founder of the Southwest Suburban Immigrant Project in Bolingbrook, asked the mayor to reconsider his stance. She said proclaiming Joliet a sanctuary city would send a message to residents. “Making a public statement on a sanctuary city would be no different from what you are already doing,” Cervantes said. Cervantes was one of several immigrant advocates who attended the meeting, also answering questions. Bolingbrook attorney Mary Helen Reyna advised parents worried about detention to make guardianship arrangements. Many people were encouraging the city to take a role in caring for children in such circumstances. But city officials said

Bob O’Dekirk Mayor of Joliet

Eric Ginnard – eginnard@shawmedia.com

Police Chief Brian Benton addresses several hundred Joliet residents Wednesday during a special session of the Joliet City Council at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Joliet. Joliet does not have the capacity to care for children, and they would

have to call the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services in

such situations. Reyna said that recently she has been working with many immigrants on guardianship arrangements. “I think it’s better for us parents to decide where our children are going to go if we are separated from them and not put them in the hands of DCFS or any other agency,” Reyna told the audience. One woman told Benton of a situation in which Joliet police asked for someone’s proof of citizenship. Benton said that if that happened, it should not have. “Our job is to work with the community – not to do ICE’s job,” Benton said. “We don’t intend to start.”

Exelon rivals sue to block billions in subsidies The ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO – Competitors of Chicago-based Exelon Corp. filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday opposing legislation that provides billions of dollars in subsidies to the power giant. The legislation approved in December provides as much as $235 million a year to Exelon to keep unprofitable nuclear plants running in Clinton and the Quad Cities. More than 4 million customers of power-distributing subsidiaries ComEd and Ameren will pay more to finance the plan. The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago challenges the law on

constitutional grounds. Crain’s Chicago Business reported that the competitors, including Houston-based Dynegy, allege the subsidies undermine wholesale power markets that are the exclusive jurisdiction of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. “It will profoundly disrupt the FERC-approved energy market auction structure and result in the transfer of hundreds of millions of dollars a year of ratepayer funds to Exelon at the expense of other generators that would have been economically viable without discriminatory subsidies,” the lawsuit stated. Exelon contends the legislation pro-

vides it similar mechanisms that have aided renewable energy development for years. “Exelon opposes misguided and parochial efforts to block state lawmakers from taking legitimate steps to protect the environment and promote sound economic policies for their citizens,” Exelon said in a statement Tuesday. Illinois Clean Jobs Coalition is slamming the lawsuit, saying the filers want to shackle Illinoisans to higher costs and dangerous fuels of the past. Consumer groups, including the nonprofit BEST Coalition, argue the plants aren’t needed and keeping them

open will cost ratepayers more anyway. The plan, to go into effect in June, would cost 3.1 million northern Illinois customers of Exelon’s power-distributing subsidiary, ComEd, an average of 25 cents more a month during the life of the plan. In central and southern Illinois, Ameren’s 1.2 million customers would pay an additional 12 cents or less monthly, the company said. Both companies said the increase could be less because of rate caps that Gov. Bruce Rauner, who has argued repeatedly in favor of saving jobs, insisted on in return for his support, lawmakers said.

Trump admin looks to regroup after exits By JONATHAN LEMIRE The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – Less than a month into his tenure, Donald Trump’s White House is beset by a crush of crises. Divisions, dysfunction and high-profile exits have left the young administration nearly paralyzed and allies wondering how it will reboot. The bold policy moves that marked Trump’s first days in office have slowed to a crawl, a tacit admission that he and his team had not thoroughly prepared an agenda. Nearly a week after the administration’s travel ban was struck down by a federal court, the White House still is struggling to regroup and outline its next move on that signature issue. It’s been six days since Trump – who promised unprecedented levels of immediate action – has announced a major new policy directive or legislative plan. His team is riven by division and plagued by distractions. This week alone, controversy has forced out both his top national security aide and his pick for labor secretary. “Another day in paradise,” Trump quipped Wednesday after his meeting with retailers was interrupted by reporters’ questions about links between his campaign staff and Russian officials. Fellow Republicans have begun voicing their frustration and open anxiety that the Trump White House will derail their high hopes for legislative action. Sen. John Thune of South Dakota demanded Wednesday that the White House “get past the launch stage.”

“There are things we want to get done here, and we want to have a clear-eyed focus on our agenda, and this constant disruption and drumbeat with these questions that keep being raised is a distraction,” Thune said. Sen. John McCain of Arizona blasted the White House’s approach to national security as “dysfunctional,” asking: “Who is in charge? I don’t know of anyone outside of the White House who knows.” Such criticism from allies is rare during what is often viewed as a honeymoon period for a new president. But Trump, an outsider who campaigned almost as much against his party as for it, has only a tiny reservoir of good will to protect him. His administration has made uneven attempts to work closely with lawmakers and its own agencies. Officials have begun trying to change some tactics, and some scenery, with the hope of steadying the ship. The White House announced Wednesday that Trump, who has often mentioned how much he loves adoring crowds and affirmation from his supporters, would hold a campaign-style rally in Florida on Saturday, the first of his term. The event, according to White House press secretary Sean Spicer, was being “run by the campaign” and it is listed on Trump’s largely dormant 2016 campaign website. No other details were offered. To be sure, pinballing from one crisis to the next is not unprecedented, particularly for a White House still finding its footing. But the disruptions that have swirled around Trump achieved hurricane force early and have not let up.

Report blames Rauner for woes VIEWS Rich Miller You may have read a news story or two about the latest blistering report from New York-based S&P Global Ratings about Illinois’ fiscal and economic woes. But it’s far more brutal than anything reported by the media and it pretty obviously lays the blame for much of the morass at Gov. Bruce Rauner’s doorstep while calling on legislators to assert “governing control.” The title of the report was: “For Illinois, Having A Plan Beats No Plan.” That title refers to the Illinois Senate’s bipartisan attempt to forge a “grand bargain” of a balanced budget and non-budgetary reforms. The credit ratings agency took no position on the Senate plan itself, but claimed “if lawmakers were to begin asserting governing control over state finances, that could help alleviate some of the pressure currently bearing down on Illinois’ credit quality.” “Illinois’ fiscal crisis is, in our view, a man-made byproduct of policy ultimatums placed upon the state’s budget process,” S&P analysts wrote, then immediately added, “As we see it, the governor interpreted his election in 2014 as a mandate to pursue various institutional changes that the legislature has steadfastly opposed.” To my eyes, those two connected sentences blame Gov. Rauner and his longstanding refusal to negotiate a real budget that balances revenues and spending until his non-budgetary demands were approved by Democrats who could not ideologically accept most of them. Maybe you think you haven’t felt any direct effects of the stalemate. But maybe you just didn’t realize that our state’s declining economic well-being of late is related to the inability of our Statehouse leaders to get their acts together. “We believe Illinois’ distressed fiscal condition and dysfunctional budget politics now threaten to erode the state’s long-term economic growth prospects,” S&P wrote. The agency claimed residents and businesses already had begun to “vote with their feet” to flee the state’s governing disaster. “[W]e have viewed the ability in the U.S. of residents to migrate easily from state to state as providing an implicit check on gross mismanagement. The recent outmigration pattern seen in the Census Bureau data suggests this phenomenon may have begun to assert itself in Illinois to the detriment of the state’s economic outlook.” In other words, lots of people are leaving Illinois because the government is so

screwed up, and that’s making our economic situation even worse, which will, of course, worsen our government’s fiscal problems. With S&P blaming the governor so directly, it should be no surprise that some Democrats and labor union leaders still don’t want to negotiate with Rauner. But here are a few scary numbers for those who insist that the governor shouldn’t be given any political “wins” by acceding to some of his demands for non-budgetary items. Let’s start with $27.7 billion, the official projection of the state’s unpaid bill backlog for June 30, 2019, the end of Fiscal Year 2019. The Governor’s Office of Management and Budget projects the backlog will rise about $7 billion a year. So, by January of 2019, when the next governor is sworn into office halfway through that fiscal year, the backlog will be about $24 billion. Because so many state vendors, particularly social service providers, aren’t being paid on time, the Senate’s grand bargain includes borrowing $7 billion to pay off many of the state’s overdue bills. The plan budgets a billion dollars a year to make the bond payments. So, a similar plan to pay off vendors by whoever wins the 2018 governor’s race would have to borrow at least three times that amount, pushing the bond payments to over $3 billion per year. That’s equal to about a percentage point increase in the personal income tax rate – just to make the bond payments. It’ll also cost a lot more to equalize state spending with revenues by then, particularly if the economy tanks into a recession, when revenues fall and spending pressures rise. But even that prediction is optimistic because it assumes financial institutions will actually loan Illinois that kind of money, which, by then, would equal 81.5 percent of total projected revenues. Or, if they do, the interest rates will be usurious because the state’s credit rating will almost definitely be in junk bond territory by then. Can you imagine how high the tax hike will have to go if Illinois can’t get a loan to pay off those vendors, or has to shell out for payday loan-level interest rates? If a Democrat does defeat Rauner, he or she probably wouldn’t be reelected because the first thing that new governor will have to do is jack those tax rates up to unheard-of levels. Food for thought.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Returning to 1920s politics not so great

To the Editor: A recent letter extolled the election of Donald Trump and that … “Republicans control everything for the first time since the 1920s.” Glorifying the greatness of the leadership during the 1920s, when the Republicans were in so many political roles, is was problematic. Some politicians were greedy: The Teapot Dome scandal involved corrupt politicians all the way to a Republican President’s cabinet. Tariffs were imposed: Fordney-McCumber Tariff (1922) and the Smoot-Hawley Tariff (1930) enacted by Republican leadership in Congress severely limited importation of foreign goods and, as a result, the ability of American companies and farmers to sell their products abroad. There was racism: Jim Crow laws, lynchings and racial intimidation were used in the South which was governed by white Democrats who, since the Voting Rights Act (1965), have become today’s Republicans. Of course, there were no racial problems in the North. Perhaps Indiana’s government’s control in the hands of the Ku Klux Klan was (doubtfully) an exception. There

were serious breakdowns in law and order: Gangland killings over who would control the flow of contraband liquor were common nationwide, in Chicago, and even Will County. There was no social safety network: Those too old to work faced poverty, familiar care or institutionalization in “old folks homes.” Little or no governmental help was available for the ill, orphaned and even the veterans of World War I. Today’s Republican leadership seems bent on renegotiating trade agreements and rewriting laws restricting both the banking industry and Wall Street. Others proposals are building walls to guard against migrants from Latin America and restricting immigration from some (but not all) nations where majorities practice Islam. There are also those within the Republican umbrella who would do away with the social networks of welfare, public education, social security and Medicare/Medicaid. In the words of the late Spanish writer/philosopher, George Santayana, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Michael Fuller Crest Hill

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL: ST. FRANCIS 114, OLIVET NAZARENE 102

UP TO THE CHALLENGE

St. Francis women improve to 28-0 By CURT HERRON

cherron@shawmedia.com JOLIET – When a team is unbeaten and ranked No. 1 in the nation, they usually can count on the fact that others will bring their best against them. In addition, the University of St. Francis women’s basketball team had to contend with the frenzied offensive

attack that Olivet Nazarene University threw at them Wednesday. The NAIA’s highest-scoring team, which came in averaging 110 points a game, hoped to stop the host’s 38-game regular-season winning streak, but the Saints made it quite clear to the Tigers that two can play that game. USF scored 35 points in each of the first two quarters to grab a 70-52 halftime lead, and things never really were in doubt after that as it romped to a 114-102 victory at the Sullivan Center that wasn’t as close as the final score suggests.

Beside improving to 28-0 overall to remain one of only two unbeaten teams in NAIA Division II, the Saints clinched the regular-season title in the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference by moving to 20-0 in league play. That also assured them an automatic berth in the NAIA national tournament. “Your guards get so tired in a game like this that you’re hoping that you have enough subs, timeouts and opportunities for them to get the rest that they need,” Saints coach Samantha Quigley-Smith said. “We got timely baskets and stops when we needed to,

and I’m glad that there wasn’t another quarter. For the most part, I thought that we did a nice job taking care of the ball, even though we had 34 turnovers. “We’re not so much thinking about the future. We talk all of the time about just taking it one day at a time, one possession at a time. If we can win the first possession, and then win another one and another one and compile up all of these winning possessions, hopefully the score will take care of itself. I love our players since they’re competitors.

24 GIRLS BASKETBALL: CLASS 4A OSWEGO REGIONAL SEMIFINALS

Minooka, Bolingbrook advance to regional final By JEFF DeGRAW

Shaw Media correspondent OSWEGO – The Minooka and Bolingbrook girls basketball teams will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Class 4A Oswego Regional final after both teams were victorious Wednesday evening in semifinal action. The Indians extended their winning streak to 13 games with a 74-47 win over Metea Valley, while the Raiders knocked off Joliet West, 76-48. Minooka (24-3), who will be trying to win its first regional title since 2013, used three runs at critical times to come away with the win. The decisive run came midway through the third quarter, with the Indians up, 36-27. That’s when they used a 13-3 run to go up 49-30 and seal the win. Neither team scored in the third quarter until Minooka’s Savannah Johnson hit a basket with 5:25 left in the frame. She followed that with another bucket and two free throws, then Brooklyn Bachmann scored six consecutive points and the rout was on.

Continued from page 23 They worked in the offseason to get better, and that was so important leading up to this.” Charnelle Reed scored a gamehigh 30 points with her last of four free throws, giving her 1,000 points for her two-year USF career. The guard converted on 13 of her 18 shots on the night to join Kamari Jordan as the second USF player to hit the 1,000-point mark this month. “We never come into an Olivet game thinking that, ‘Oh, we’ve got this one,’ ” Reed said. “They’re a team that you never want to underestimate. The game plan is always to limit turnovers, play at our pace and don’t let them speed us up and take control of the game early. It feels good to be able to put up numbers like I have individually, but as a team, you just want to put the ball in the basket, and you just want the ‘W’ at the end of the day. “We come into each game knowing that we have a huge target on our backs and that we’re going to get everybody’s best. So we get their best and they get our best, and hopefully we can stay on top as the No. 1 team in the country. I like the selflessness of our team. We’re also top-ranked in the country for assists, and we share

“After scouting Metea, we thought we could run on them and make those runs like we did tonight,” Minooka coach Ray Liberatore said. “We were a little rusty to start, and that comes from not playing in eight days. “Savannah did a very good job tonight on the inside. She got herself in position, used her quickness and got us some key offensive rebounds. Hailey Arlis also did a great job against their size.” Johnson, who ended the night with 19 points and 10 rebounds, was happy with the team effort. “We just want to play hard for each other, be consistent and be a team player, and if you do that, the results will take care of themselves,” Johnson said. Bachmann, who scored 20 points, knew that the Indians’ speed and quickness could be a key factor. “We knew coming in that with the size Metea had that we would have to do a great job of boxing out,” Bachmann said. “We did that, and we used our speed and quickness to run after we secured the rebound.” The first run came in the opening the ball very well. We also take pride in our defense. Points come easy for us when we move the ball and play at our pace.” The Saints, who close out the regular season Saturday with a home game against Indiana South Bend, converted plenty of layups to shoot 45 of 72 for the game (62.5 percent) while the Tigers (19-10, 13-7) made good on 38-of-89 attempts from the floor (42.7 percent). USF also received a season-high 22 points from Christina Ekhomu, who also had seven assists, while Kaitlin Aylward added 19 points and 11 rebounds, Ivana Markovic had 13 points and seven assists, Jordan Giddings had 11 points, and Jordan added eight points. “What’s been big for us this season has been taking everybody’s best shot because we’re looking for something greater,” Ekhomu said. “Taking all of the punches and rolling with them has been great for us. They’re good at speeding things up, so we wanted to make sure that we played our game. “I’m very proud of our team and proud of how everybody has responded and accepted their role. We’ve done everything that we can to continue to get better and try to take something new from every game since we’re just not satisfied. That’s what I love about this team.”

quarter with the Indians trailing, 7-2, with 5:30 left as they went on a 18-7 scoring spree to end the quarter up, 2014. Minooka hit six consecutive field goals, with Bachmann scoring eight points in the quarter. Metea opened the second quarter by outscoring Minooka, 8-3, to close to within 23-22. But then the Indians had six different players score over twoplus minutes, and they outscored the Mustangs, 13-2, as the half ended. Cierra Bachmann added 11 points for the Indians. Bolingbrook (16-9), which trailed by 12 points in the first quarter, kept the pressure on and gradually wore down the Tigers. The game wasn’t decided until the fourth quarter as Bolingbrook took a 48-44 lead after three. The Raiders scored the first 13 points of the quarter to go up, 61-44, and the Tigers couldn’t recover. “We played hard tonight, and I’m very pleased with how we played the first three quarters,” West coach John Placher said. “We got tired in the fourth quarter, and when you play a team like Bolingbrook, you see what

can happen. Our kids played their hearts out tonight.” West (16-12) used a big first quarter that saw it go on a 9-3 run to end the quarter up, 20-13. They trailed 4-0 but capitalized on every opportunity in the quarter and at one point led by 12 points. The Tigers scored the first two points of the second quarter to lead, 22-13, but then the Raiders put together a 17-3 scoring burst to take a 30-25 lead. West fought back, and with two minutes left in the half, Sarah Gersch hit a 3-pointer and freshman Jazzpher Evans hit a free throw to put the Tigers to within 35-31 at the half. The Raiders had four players in double figures led by 17 from Jahari Smith. Gabriella Smith added 15, Arielle McElroy chipped in with 13 and Jayden Marable added 10 points. The Tigers were led by Gersch with 17 while Evans added 14 and Nicole Gal had 10. “Overall I’m happy with our season,” Placher said. “We play in a very tough conference, and we will just continue to build upon what we have done the last three years.”

WRESTLING HONOR ROLL

Tournament veterans among title favorites By CURT HERRON

cherron@shawmedia.com Austin O’Connor looks to become a four-time state champion. Michael McGee hopes to reach the finals for the third straight year and claim his second title. Egan Berta looks to improve a spot from last season and cap his career with a championship. Abdullah Assaf, Trevell Timmons and David Riojas would like their third state medals to reflect their initial visit to the title mat. And Brandon Ramos, Jake Kirkman and Chase Emerson hope that their fourth appearance at state finally results in a medal. These are some of the interesting storylines involving the 13 area wrestlers who will be making their third or fourth trips to the IHSA finals, which start Thursday and run through Saturday at the State Farm Center in Champaign. St. Rita’s O’Connor, from Lockport, will try to join the 15 other four-time champions in IHSA history and become just the fifth to win four straight in the largest division. The only individual from this area to win four titles was Providence’s Mark Ruettiger,

who was first to do so, capturing titles from 1978-81. O’Connor (42-0) is ranked third nationally at 152 pounds, and has won around 130 straight matches since last losing early in his sophomore season. O’Connor owns a 177-4 career record. He hopes to become the first wrestler to win nine combined titles in the IKWF and IHSA and also just the fifth never to drop a tournament match during his Illinois high school career. This also is the fourth appearance for Plainfield East’s McGee (39-0), who is ranked No. 4 in the nation at 120. During the past three seasons, he owns a 112-5 record, winning a 3A title in 2015 and finishing second last year. “I just need to go back to the room and correct some stuff and I’ll be better for state,” McGee said. “I just want to go out and dominate and I know that I can, so I just have to do it. I still have that hunger, and every day when I go in the room I have the same goal. I won’t forget about not winning last year, it’s in the back of my mind every time that I train or wrestle.” Berta (31-3) would like to return to the title mat and win his first championship in his fourth state trip. He is ranked No. 1 at 145 in 2A. Timmons and Assaf lead the way

for Lockport, whose 12 qualifiers are the most of any program in the state. Timmons (36-4), a four-time qualifier who placed fifth in 2015 and sixth last year, is ranked No. 1 at 160 in 3A. “I feel like I’ve worked way too hard for me not to win it,” Timmons said. “I’m working as hard as anyone at my weight and am just pushing myself as much as I can and am peaking every week. I’ve been close before, reaching the semis as a sophomore and last year, when I got injured. So this year, I’m taking it a match at a time and a day at a time, but I want to move on to the title and get that bracket board.” Assaf (24-2), who is making his third state trip, took third place in 2015 and was fifth a year ago, and is ranked second to Oak Park-River Forest’s Jason Renteria at 132 in 3A. “My No. 1 goal is a state title,” Assaf said. “I think that my offense is the best in the state and that I can hang with anybody. I’ve been waiting for this week to come so that I can go out and show it. If everyone wrestles the way that we’ve been wrestling the last two weeks, not only do I think we can bring home 12 placers but also the state title. We feel confident since

26 GIRLS BOWLING: STATE PREVIEW

Area boasts rich tradition in girls state bowling By DICK GOSS

dgoss@shawmedia.com The Lockport, Minooka and Morris girls bowling teams will arrive at Cherry Bowl in Rockford Friday intending to carry on a Joliet-area tradition. The area has not been denied a place in the final 12 at the Girls State Bowling Tournament since 2003. In fact, it has had at least two teams finish in the top 12 every year since except 2012, when Minooka claimed second place as the only area top-12 finisher, and 2013, when Lockport was fourth as the sole representative. More recently, Joliet West won the championship last season, with Lockport finishing third. In 2015, the Porters won it all, with West eighth. Minooka was fifth, West 10th and Lockport 11th in 2014. Lockport won the Andrew Sectional on Saturday with a 6,334 total for six games. That was 70 pins better than runner-up Oswego East, which lost a 118-pin lead and dropped nine pins behind Lockport in Game 5. Minooka also advanced out of the Andrew Sectional, shooting 6,012 for third place. Oswego was the fourth qualifier. Minooka senior Carmella Russell won the first tournament of her career, posting a 1,375 total, a 229.2 average. She opened the morning set with her first 300 and had a 269 in Game 3 for a 763 series, then tacked on a 612 threegame series in the afternoon. Russell’s sister, Gina, a sophomore, finished second overall with a 1,358

Continued from page 25 we train really hard and have seen the best competition. We’re hungry.” Mount Carmel’s Riojas (33-6), who lives in Plainfield, was sixth in 2015 and third a year ago at state. He ranks second to Lyons Township’s Johnny Mologousis at 170. A trio of four-time qualifiers hope that they can finally get on the awards stand. Lemont’s Kirkman (39-3) is ranked No. 1 in Class 2A at 152, Lockport’s Ramos (37-5) hopes to medal at 138 in Class 3A, and Peotone’s Emerson (31-2) seeks a medal at 126 in Class 1A. “The last three years I’ve made it to state but I’ve come up short, so this is my year to make a statement,” Ramos said. “I’m going to push even harder the next two weeks. And all of this winning pushes each of us to

She opened with a 279 and finished her day with games of 235 and 258. As is always the case, comparing raw numbers between sectionals is risky at best. Different houses score differently on a given day. Moments after Lockport wrapped up the Andrew Sectional championship, Porters senior Dana Ackerson commented about the Orland Bowl lanes. “I felt good, but I felt like the lanes were tough,” said Ackerson, who shot 1,270 for her six games, a 211.7 average, go even farther since we’re trying to make program history.” Lincoln-Way West senior Jake Dudeck (32-5) and Peotone junior Chandler Gartner (26-2) both are making their third state trip and hope to each pick up their second medal. Dudeck, who took fifth while at Lincoln-Way Central last year is at 220 in Class 3A, while Gartner, who placed fourth a year ago, is at 170 in Class 1A. And a pair of three-time senior qualifiers hope that the third time’s the charm in their quest for their first medals. Competing at 152, Plainfield Central’s Jared Ellingwood (39-6) seeks a medal in Class 3A, while Wilmington’s Nick Pretto (41-6) has the same goal in Class 1A. “I believe that I can make it far downstate,” Ellingwood said. “I didn’t really wrestle like myself in the sectional but coming back, I’ll be more prepared and I believe that I’ll be at my best.”

to claim 10th place overall. “But I’ll take 1,270 any day.” It all starts over from zero at the state meet, so whatever the sectional numbers showed no longer matters. Twenty-four team qualifiers will compete for the 12 available spots for Saturday’s six-game finals. Those in the know will tell you Lockport and Rockford Harlem are two of the teams to beat at Cherry Bowl, but “surprises” often occur at state. “Everyone says Harlem and us,” Lockport coach Art Cwudzinski said. “But you don’t know what’s coming

from down south. I just expect it to be high-scoring there and intense.” Ackerson is in the group Cwudzinski calls his super six. The other seniors are Grace Karraker, Paige Reiter, Monica Colon and Marissa Ramirez. Bailey Delrose, a junior, rounds out the six. Cwudzinski’s five-bowler lineup for any game or series this weekend is likely to come from those six. If the Porters are able to secure their second title in three years, that will be the third under Cwudzinski (the 2009 team won state), and the fifth for the school as Ed Matesevac coached Lockport to state championships in 1994 and 1999. In addition to the Russell sisters, Minooka coach Frank Yudzentis will count on contributions this weekend from sophomore Krisitna Sickler, senior Sam Isemonger, freshman Alyssa Ritchie and senior Erin Dunn. Morris was champion of the LaSalle-Peru Sectional. The Redskins, under coach Harry Banks, will bid for their first top-12 finish since 2010, when they were ninth. Freshman Angel Heck led Morris in the sectional with a 1,300 total. Senior Amy Waldron shot 1,281, sophomore Olivia Schultz 1,265, senior Corrone Day 1,154 and sophomore Cadenz Fitzgerald 1,007. The competition at state also will include individual competition. The area has no individual qualifiers from non-advancing teams, but anyone bowling for teams at state also will compete for individuals honors.

AREA ROUNDUP

NHL

The HERALD-NEWS JOLIET – Things started well for the University of St. Francis men’s basketball team in Wednesday’s CCAC game against Olivet Nazarene University, but didn’t end that way. The Saints jumped out to a 49-42 halftime lead, but the Tigers responded by outscoring them 52-36 after the break to capture a 94-85 victory at the Sullivan Center. USF (17-12, 11-9) was led by Jean Pietrzak (21 points), Iain Morison (13 points, nine rebounds), Logan Timmons (12 points) and Hayden Witt (10 points).

GIRLS BASKETBALL Class 3A Providence Sectional: The

Class 4A Lincoln-Way Central Regional: The Knights (16-14) fell, 49-37,

to Sandburg on Tuesday. Courteney Barnes had 12 points and seven rebounds, Colleen Barrett added 11 points and Abi Baumgartner had 10 points and 12 rebounds. Class 3A Kankakee Regional: Rich Central eliminated Coal City, 46-34. Bridget Kauzlaric had 10 points for the Coalers (12-17).

Minooka Junior High took home the Illinois Elementary School Association State Competition-Small Division Championship after competing with 11 teams at the Peoria Civic Center. This year’s IESA State Champions consist of 11 girls and one boy. Minooka Junior, which was coached by Jenna Ponio, also took first at both the Wilmington and Joliet West competitions. Kelvin Grove gets second: Lockport’s Kelvin Grove placed second at the IESA State Competition-Small Routine Division among 33 teams. The Hornets, coached by Lynn Krumlinde and Karli Pattison, performed a near-perfect difficult routine to capture another trophy. Kelvin Grove’s cheer program has placed in the top five at state 13 times in the past 16 years.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Lewis ranks No. 5: The NCAA Mid-

west Regional Advisory Committee announced that Lewis (20-5, 12-3) is No. 5 in the inaugural Midwest Regional Rankings. The top eight teams in the eight regions will make the NCAA Tournament.

The relay team’s time of 10:03.68 is the third-best in the nation thus far this winter.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL BRIEF Trimble, No. 23 Maryland beat Northwestern, 74-64

EVANSTON – Maryland figured out pretty quickly that Melo Trimble had an extra gear Wednesday night, so it kept going back to the junior guard. There was never any reason to go anywhere else. Trimble scored a career-high 32 points on 12-for-17 shooting, and the 23rd-ranked Terrapins strengthened their position in the Big Ten with a 74-64 victory over Northwestern. Trimble repeatedly came up with big plays for the Terrapins (22-4, 10-3), driving inside for layups or connecting from long range. He made four of Maryland’s eight 3-pointers and also contributed four rebounds and three assists.

It was a welcome turnaround for the Terrapins’ leading scorer after he shot just 31 percent (16 for 52) in his previous four games. Anthony Cowan added 13 points and Damonte Dodd had 12 as Maryland moved into a tie with Purdue for second in the conference, just a half-game behind Wisconsin. The Terrapins visit the Badgers on Sunday. Northwestern (19-7, 8-5) was coming off a big 66-59 win at Wisconsin last Sunday, boosting its chances for the first NCAA Tournament appearance in the history of the program. But it got off to a slow start offensively and never recovered against Trimble and the poised Terrapins.

Free agency brings mix of emotions for Arrieta

Easy Easy Easy Where

By BRUCE MILES

bmiles@dailyherald.com MESA, Ariz. – Jake Arrieta is entering the point in his career that every athlete looks at with a flood of emotions and thoughts: the free-agent year, or the “walk” year. At 31 years old, the Cubs righthander for the first time can determine his place of employment at the end of the 2017 season. Of course, there is the prospect of Arrieta cashing in big, either with the Cubs or some other team, based on how he does this season. That alone is enough to excite anybody about free agency. But also tugging at Arrieta are the friendships and relationships he has made in Chicago as he collected a Cy Young Award and a World Series title. “Time flies really quickly,” he said Wednesday as Cubs pitchers and catchers held their first formal workouts of spring training. “It feels like only a few months ago that I was traded over here and starting my career as a Cub in 2013. We’ve had some incredible experiences with this organization. “I don’t want to see that time come to an end, my time as a Cub. Unfortunately, the business side of the game shows its head every once in awhile. But I still think there are opportunities and chances that we can have good conversations as far as an extension is concerned and see if we can get something worked out.” Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said Wednesday there was nothing new to report on a contract extension for Arrieta, who will make $15.6 million this season. Arrieta has made plenty of money in his career, which is why he said the impending free agency won’t be a distraction. “Once you get to a certain point in your career financially, it’s a little easier to put that out of mind,” he said. “Financially, it’s not a big worry for myself individually. The less of a distraction that can play on the team and on everyone in this clubhouse the better.” Arrieta has been very good for the Cubs since they obtained him from Baltimore along with reliever Pedro Strop in July 2013 as part of trade that sent pitcher Scott Feldman and catcher Steve Clevenger to the Orioles. As a Cub, Arrieta is 54-21 with a 2.52

Since the beginning of his Cy Young season in 2015, he has gone 40-14 with a 2.39 ERA. He has tossed a pair of no-hitters in that time and held opposing hitters to a .189 batting average. So with the track record Arrieta brings, manager Joe Maddon isn’t worried about any extraneous thoughts creeping into his pitcher’s head. “Honestly, I think it can be a positive for him and for us,” Maddon said. “Obviously, if you’re in that year, you really want to put your best foot forward to attract the best contract the next season. We had our meeting this morning with Jake. I’ve said it all the time. I’m always impressed with our guys when they walk out the door. He was just all about winning. He’s all about making all of his starts. That’s where is mind is at right now. “He’s good. He’s very good. If he makes all of his starts, just that alone is going to mean the numbers are going to be good enough to attract a lot of suitors, I believe. I think he has the right mindset: Let’s go one game at a time. Let’s try to make all of our starts, stay healthy. And if you’re good, the numbers are going to pop.” At the Cubs convention in January, Arrieta was asked about being

able to test the free-agent market. He was drafted in 2007 by the Orioles and endured some career ups and downs before turning his career around with the Cubs. “As a player, you’re told where you’re going to play your whole career until free agency,” he said. “So that’s a nice aspect of it, to be able to decide for once where you want to go, but this is a pretty good place to play. There are some great cities out there, some good teams, but I’m not worried about that now. I’m trying to be a good teammate and perform to the best of my ability for these guys for another season, and then we’ll go from there.” Still, there’s that tug that comes from being a Cub. “I’ll always feel a part of this organization for the rest of my life because I came over here in ’13 and turned my career around, won a Cy Young, threw a couple no-hitters, won a World Series,” he said. “So that’s going to be hard to top wherever I go, if I leave. Yeah, I’ll feel a part of this city and this organization for a long time.”

Knee and shoulder problems limited him to 37

innings in 2014 (1.46 ERA) and 582/3 in 2015 (4.91 ERA). “Man, I feel great,” said Holland, who pitched to a 3.42 ERA over 213 innings in 2013 and a 3.95 ERA (going 16-5) over 198 innings in 2011. “I mean, I don’t know how to rally describe it without sounding crazy, but I feel awesome. I want to use some crazy words to describe it, but I have to remember I’m with the media.” Holland signed a one-year deal for $6 million, choosing the Sox over the Pirates. Discussions with pitch Don Cooper helped him make the decision. “Coop just kept nailing me,” Holland said. “Saying ‘There’s some things I want to work on, I know what we can get right. I saw some things.’ We just kept talking about stuff, and I know these are things I need to get back on track and to be successful. And that was it. “Once he started hammering down on me, I was like, ‘All right, we’re going with the White Sox.’ Plus I’m a very sporty person, and [Chicago] is a sports town, too. I came from a sports town (Dallas), and this is another great sports town. That also played a factor.”

Derek Holland’s goal is to pitch deep into games, log 200 innings and help his new team, the White Sox, win some of them. The Sox signed the 30-year-old lefthander to pick up a chunk of the innings that otherwise would have been eaten up by Chris Sale. For what it’s worth, in the weeks since Holland appeared at SoxFest and now at the outset of spring training, it has become obvious to fans and media the Sox also have a big, engaging presence. “The main thing is, you gotta have fun and enjoy yourself,” Holland said. When Holland made calls to Sox season-ticket holders from Guaranteed Rate Field last month, he dipped into his cache of impersonations to entertain: Harry Caray, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Cleveland from “Family Guy,” Kermit the Frog. For a team that figures, in a rebuilding phase, to be on the losing side of most games, it can’t hurt to have a few laughs. Holland will be good for that.

“I just have a personality,” Holland said. “I want to live my life, have fun, enjoy myself and play the game of baseball at the same time.” On Sunday night, Holland and teammate Tommy Kahnle attended Royal Rumble, a WWE elimination chamber event in Phoenix. He bought replica championship belts for two kids sitting by them, one a Make-AWish beneficiary. That’s just how he rolls. During a group media session Wednesday, Holland joked about not remembering new teammates names, gave a cameraman a hard time for moving around and said he whispered “reunited and it feels so good” in catcher Geovany Soto’s ear (the two were teammates with the Rangers). Manager Rick Renteria said Holland’s presence is good for the comfort levels of all those young Sox players. “I think it’s awesome,” Renteria said. “As we get to know him a little bit more, we are going to take advantage of it, exploit it a little bit. He’s a happygo-lucky guy. (And) very focused, very intent on his work. He knows what he wants to do. He’s been around. We’ll take advantage of it and use it to liven

The Upper Room Crisis Hotline ministers to emotional and spiritual needs By DENISE M. BARAN–UNLAND dunland@shawmedia.com

JOLIET – The Upper Room Crisis Hotline is experiencing changes and challenges. On Feb. 10, staff and volunteers celebrated one significant change: a larger administrative space. Bishop R. Daniel Conlon of the Diocese of Joliet shared in the celebration by offering a prayer service and blessing the new space. Another new change is the hiring of its first employee. Catharine M. Lentz became executive director Jan. 1. This will allow the The Upper Room’s founder, Sister Mary Frances Seeley, who remains a board member, to concentrate on research, updating training manuals (which Seeley wrote) and helping similar hotlines get started. For instance, in March, Seeley will travel to Australia to help a Salvation Army start a faith-based hotline for veterans. “They had a hotline, but the government funded it,” Seeley said. “They prayed with a caller who requested it and the government said it didn’t approve it and shut it down. So now they’re using our material to start a faith-based hotline.” Lentz said a large portion of her role is fundraising and marketing. For starters, Lentz plans to speak at area churches. “If we don’t start broadening our base of donations, we’ll have a hard time staying open,” Lentz said. The Upper Room’s two main expenses are the actual physical space and the cost of the hotline number. The Upper Room received more than 5,000 calls in 2016, Seeley said. The Upper Room is part of the Diocese of Joliet but not under it, Lentz said. “Volunteers have to live in the area, but donations can come from all over,” Lentz said. According to Seeley, The Upper Room Crisis Hotline is a faith-based international hotline in the Catholic tradition. Governed by a board of di-

rectors consisting of priests, religious people and lay people, The Upper Room provides nonjudgmental listening and referrals to clergy, religious and lay people 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “We’ve gotten calls from 17 countries,” Lentz said. What sets apart The Upper Room from other hotlines, such as Crisis Line of Will and Grundy Counties, which Seeley also founded, is the opportunity line operators have to explore issues of faith, provide Catholic resources and pray with callers, who do not have to be Catholic or even Christian.

“We are a spiritual and emotional hotline,” Lentz said. “We don’t handle any physical needs; we don’t handle food, clothing, transportation. We’re here for spiritual and emotional needs only.” Through the years, Seeley, who has extensive national and international experience in hotline administration and maintenance, has visited other crisis hotlines, but none are faith-based, she said. This is why keeping The Upper Room open is crucial. The rapidly changing culture is bringing problems and concerns that faith best addresses. “Even those who are not Catholic have questions about the Catholic faith,” Seeley said. “They have questions about the Bible and questions about the sacraments. People who aren’t Catholic often want to know the Catholic prayers. One man wanted to know the act of contrition at 1:30 in the

morning.” Lentz, a licensed attorney, began volunteering at her church when her children were growing up, found she had a gift for ministry and decided to return to school. “People just talk to me and I’m happy to listen,” Lentz said. After earning a degree in liturgy from the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, Lentz began working in liturgy, worship and evangelization for churches in Illinois, Indiana and Michigan before coming to The Upper Room as executive director. Ultimately what The Upper Room seeks to do is “walk with people in their pain,” Lentz said. That goal is for anyone, Lentz said, whether that person is Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, or an agnostic or atheist. “Anyone who calls is cared for on that telephone call,” Lentz said.

n Priests on call – If a caller wishes only to speak to a priest, the line operator will contact the priest on call. The priest will return The Upper Room Crisis Hotline offers upon the call as soon as possible in a confidential request: manner. According to Sister Mary Frances n Sunshine calls – These reassure, assist and encourage priests, deacons and religious Seeley, about seven priests currently serve people who live alone or in small groups, are on call. Inspiration for the Upper retired from active ministry, are isolated from their peers, or are dealing with health issues. Room Crisis Hotline name:

In the upper room, Jesus washed the feet of his apostles as a model for their own ministry, Christians met to pray and the Holy Spirit first descended upon the believers waiting there. It seems an appropriate name for a faithbased crisis line where “the healing of our Lord takes place, one wounded heart at a time,” according to a written statement from

Executive Director Catharine M. Lentz. Volunteers: All volunteers are adults who completed an eight-week course in communication skills, relationship issues, suicide prevention, addictions, spirituality and occult, along with role playing and personal screening. The hotline number is 1-888-808-8724. For information, visit www.catholichotline.org.

This award recognizes women of vision who have transformed the world of their time. The university presents this award in honor of its patron saint, Clare of Mona Purdy Assisi. The 2017 Sister Clare Award recipient is Mona Purdy, founder and CEO of Share Your Soles. Purdy will receive USF’s Sister Clare Award at 2:30 p.m. March 21 in San Damiano Hall, 603 Taylor St., at the Joliet campus. The ceremony is open to the public. Share Your Soles is a nonprofit organization started by Purdy 17 years ago during a visit to South America. Purdy noticed the village children painting tar onto their feet because they did not have any shoes to wear.

would not have to return so often to amputate their limbs because of infection. In that moment, Purdy decided the solution was simple. Seventeen years and more than 2.5 million pairs of shoes later, Purdy has donated lightly used and new shoes to children in 40 impoverished nations. The organization began in her home garage with help from children in her neighborhood, sorting, cleaning and shipping shoes. Now, Share Your Soles has a permanent home in the Pullman neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side. Over the years, Purdy has enlisted assistance from sponsors, government agencies, embassies and major corporations to ensure the shoes are shipped safely and distributed where they are needed most.

PLAINFIELD – On Jan. 30, St. Mary Immaculate students in third through eighth grades assembled to witness St. Mary’s 2017 Spelling Bee. The winner, eighth-grader Faith Nolasco, out-spelled 17 other sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade schoolmates, each a previous winner of spelling bees in their language arts classes. Eighth-grader Isabel Duffy finished in second place. St. Mary Immaculate teacher Anne D’Andrea coordinated the school’s 2017 spelling bee. She was assisted by fellow teachers Joan Hamer and Jaylene Suvar. Faith’s winning word was “alliance.” It took 14 rounds to determine the school champion. She earned the right to compete in the Will County Spelling Bee, which will be held March 7 at Lockport East High School. The champion of the Will County Spelling Bee qualifies to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee from May 28 to June 3 in Washington, D.C. For information, call 815-436-3953

ASK THE DOCTORS Elizabeth Ko and Eve Glazier Be sure your home, both inside and out, is well lit. Install grab bars and non-skid mats in the bathroom. Keep a flashlight by your bed for nighttime emergencies. Staying fit and flexible makes a big difference. When you get out of a chair, try rising without using your hands. Practice standing on one foot – balance begets balance. Walking backward, which can be a surprising challenge, can help you become more spatially aware. Yoga and tai chi have both been shown to help with balance. Slow and graceful, these exercises not only help to maintain balance, they can improve it. Weight-bearing exercises to strengthen the arms, back and legs are effective as well. Many community centers offer a wide range of exercise classes specifically tailored to people who are older. It’s a great way to get fit and meet people with whom you can exercise in the future. And in case you have any doubt that now is a great time to start working on balance, an intriguing new study backs you up. When researchers analyzed 775 participants between the ages of 30 and 90 over the course of several years, they discovered that the decline in balance actually begins during your 50s. • Eve Glazier, M.D., MBA, is an internist and assistant professor of medicine at UCLA Health. Elizabeth Ko, M.D., is an internist and primary care physician at UCLA Health.

Dear Doctor: I’m just about to turn 60, which – from what I’ve read – is when balance begins to become an issue. What can I do to stay steady on my feet? Dear Reader: Although good balance is important to all of us who face the world on two legs, it’s particularly vital to our well-being as we age. Unlike a child, who’s likely to bounce right back up and laugh, or an adult, who comes away with a bump or a bruise, a fall for a senior citizen is a serious health risk. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one-fourth of people over 65 have a fall each year. In 20 percent of those falls, the outcome is a serious injury, including head trauma. At least 2 million elderly people per year visit the emergency room due to injuries from a fall. Close to 300,000 of them wind up in the hospital with a hip fracture. At its most basic, balance is the ability to evenly distribute your weight and remain in control. We use our ability to balance when we stand, sit, walk, run and perform an infinite range of physical tasks. To achieve and maintain balance, our bodies use a complex set of systems that include muscle strength, sensory input like sight and touch, and a cluster of mechanisms in the inner ear that help with motion, equilibrium and spatial orientation. To prevent a fall, start by reducing your risk. If you wear glasses, make sure your prescription is up-to-date. If you’re on any medication, talk to your doctor about possible side effects that could affect balance. At home, eliminate tripping hazards like uneven floors, loose rugs, stray power cords and clutter on floors.

Dear Abby: My DEAR ABBY daughter and son are heroin Jeanne addicts. After livPhillips ing through this hell for 11 years, I have reached my breaking point. My daughter, who just turned 18, is in jail. My heart is broken. Therapists, parent sessions, etc. haven’t helped. I’m 60 years old and should be retiring, but my retirement money was all spent on rehabs, etc. I won’t even go into the many items that were stolen from me. How do I move on? I’m so depressed I can’t get out of bed in the morning, and I cry all day. I don’t want to take meds for depression because drugs have caused all my misery. My marriage is falling apart, too. How do I carry on with this misery? – Miserable in Connecticut Dear Miserable: The way to carry on is to let it go. If you haven’t heard of Nar-Anon, you should check into it. It’s a support group for the family and friends of people who are addicted to narcotics, based on the principals of Al-Anon, which is for the loved ones of alcoholics. Help is as near as your computer. Visit nar-anon.org to find a group near you, and you will find that you are not as alone as you feel right now. Dear Abby: Five years ago, I discovered my wife had been cheating on me with an ex-boyfriend for eight years. We have two young children, so we resolved our differences and decided against divorce. Now she says she wants us to have another baby. I feel I cannot handle a pregnancy with her because of her infidelity. As a hands-on father, I would want to be part of the pregnancy and the complications/changes that come with it. How should I handle this and express to her why I cannot (at this point) have another child with her? – Hands-on Dad Dear Dad: Clearly you are not over your wife’s infidelity, and frankly, I can’t blame you. The best way to get the message across to her would be during marriage counseling. Dear Abby: Several years ago I gifted one of my nephews, who was serving in the military at the time, with a .38-caliber revolver that had belonged to my uncle and reportedly had been used during World War I. I also gave his older brother a Colt .45 pistol from World War II. The nephew with the .38 revolver suffered from PTSD and died several years ago. The gun went to his father. My question is, shouldn’t I have been asked if I wanted the revolver returned? I didn’t give it to his father but to him. The father has made no attempt to return it to me. Abby, guns with histories are very personal to owners, and this one was doubly personal and an antique. What should I do? – Empty Holster in Texas Dear Empty Holster: Technically, once a gift is given it becomes the property of the person who receives it. Because your nephew is deceased – and I’m assuming his father is his next of kin – the gun became the father’s property. Since the gun has emotional significance to you because of its history, depending upon your relationship with the father, you can ask him to return it -- or offer to buy it back from him. However, there is no guarantee he will agree to your request.

HOROSCOPE By EUGENIA LAST

Newspaper Enterprise Association TODAY – If you keep your emotions under control, everything else will fall into place this year. Carefully choose your targets as you navigate your way through business and personal situations. Make it your quest to come up with ideas and to bring about positive change. Romance is highlighted. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – A chance to make a financial move is best thought through carefully. Don’t let your emotions or romantic partner influence an important decision. You cannot buy love. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Your luck is changing, and good fortune is heading in your

direction. Reconnect with someone you have enjoyed working or playing with in the past and see what happens. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Express your thoughts and offer suggestions. You will capture interest and impress someone who can influence your future. Partnerships and contracts look promising, and can be formulated and signed. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – A business meeting or personal discussion will go well if you listen to what’s being said. Once you grasp the magnitude of the conversation, add positive, unique suggestions. Your candor will be appreciated. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Put everything you’ve got into getting ahead. Use your intellect to draw attention to what you want to see unfold and you will have a captive audience. Romance looks

inviting. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – You’ll be torn between professional and personal responsibilities. Look for a unique way to satisfy both yourself and the people counting on you. Honesty and understanding will help you overcome challenges. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Stop contemplating and start engaging in the ventures that excite you. Personal gains, travel and physical indulgence look appealing as well as rewarding. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Try to stay on course. Falling behind will result in complaints from someone who can be demanding. Put your money in a safe place to avoid overspending. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Look for changes that will make your life better. Evaluate your current situation as well as your relationships. Size

things up, and figure out how you can attain the happiness you desire. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Problems with communication can be expected if you have revealed too much information to someone you thought you could trust. Damage control will be necessary and should be implemented in a candid manner. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Get out there and have fun today. Participate in any activity that will align you with like-minded people or valuable colleagues. Be a team player. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Stop in your tracks before you make a mistake. Don’t follow the leader when you should be the leader. Making impulsive decisions or letting someone coerce you into an argument will set you back.

The winner of the 2016 Yeh Online World Bridge Cup was Lavazza, who played in Turin, Italy. The team partnerships were Emanuela Calandra-Norberto Bocchi, Benedicte Cronier-Agustin Madala and Sylvie Willard-Giorgio Duboin. Winning points sometimes seems random, but if you keep pressuring the opponents, things usually work out -- as in this deal played between Lavazza and the Chinese Contract Bridge Association. Madala (South) opened one heart in fourth seat with a hand that fails the Rule of 15: In fourth chair, open if your point-count plus spade length equals at least 15; otherwise, pass out the deal. Over West’s takeout double, Cronier (North) responded two notrump (the Truscott convention) to show a maximum pass with at least four-card heart support. South took a shot at the vulnerable game. West made an inadvisable lead: her trump. Now declarer drew trumps, knocked out the club ace and had 10 tricks: five hearts, two diamonds, two clubs and a diamond ruff in the dummy. Probably, if West had led the spade king, Madala would have made the contract, playing West for a singleton heart because of her takeout double. At the other table, over West’s double, South bid two clubs, which he intended as the Reverse Drury convention, showing a maximum pass with heart support -- he did not see West’s double! Over the double, two clubs was natural. South rebid two diamonds, and North invited game with three hearts, which South, expecting at most three hearts opposite, passed. Declarer also took 10 tricks, but Lavazza gained 10 international match points.
