Rialto board delays vote on VenuWorks contract By BOB OKON

bokon@shawmedia.com JOLIET – The Rialto Square Theatre board delayed a vote on a VenuWorks contract at a special meeting Thursday, which was called to vote on the agreement. However, the board did take legal steps needed to pave the way to a $600,000 loan from the Rialto Square Theatre Foundation to pay off a backlog of bills. The agreement with VenuWorks must be completed before the Rialto gets another cash injection – $250,000 from the city of Joliet, promised once the Rialto has at least a one-year contract in place with a management company. The board will consider the contract again at its regular meeting Wednesday. The VenuWorks contract would be a five-year agreement with a clause allowing either side to walk away after three years. VenuWorks would be paid $114,000 a year in base management fees.

ed in two $250,000 installments. The board voted to table the contract vote to Wednesday to give Osterberger time to discuss potential numbers with VenuWorks.

Foundation loan

The board voted to file a petition seeking court approval of the foundation loan. It also approved an agreement to pay back the loan at the rate of $50,000 a year with 1 percent interest. The loan would be used to pay off bills that are more than 30 days old, which totaled nearly $585,000 on Thursday. All unpaid bills, including less than 30 days old, totaled nearly $646,000. The foundation needs court approval because the money would come out of an endowment that was set up to leave the principal intact while spending the interest on the Rialto. Ed Jarot, attorney for the foundation, said a petition could go to court for possible approval Feb. 24. It would take some time after that to convert bonds and securities into cash to give to the Rialto, he said.

Rock band Kansas coming to Taste of Joliet By BOB OKON

bokon@shawmedia.com JOLIET – Opening night for Taste of Joliet will feature three rock bands with national reputations, a first for the summertime festival. Kansas, Survivor and .38 Special – bands that had national top hits in the 1970s and 1980s – will play Friday night

WHERE IT’S AT The Herald-News and TheHerald-News.com are a division of Shaw Media.

The company also would get 5 percent of food and beverage sales and 10 percent of revenue from advertising, sponsorships, naming rights and pouring rights. The VenuWorks cut from other revenues concerned board member Thomas Osterberger, who said he wanted to see more numbers and projections in the agreement. “When they get a certain percentage of food and beverage sales, I want to know what the projections of those sales are going to be,” he said. Osterberger also expressed some concern about approving an agreement with VenuWorks before seeing a budget. Meeting budget is a key part of the contract, which calls for VenuWorks to refund a portion of its base management fee if theater operations go over budget. VenuWorks, which has been at the Rialto since September on two shortterm contracts, developed a business plan that projected a $500,000 deficit in 2017. That deficit is to be covered by the city contribution, which will be provid-

of the festival, which has become rock music night for Taste of Joliet. They will be joined by the bands Hot Mess and 7th Heaven on June 23.

CRAFTING THE FUTURE

Students work under pressure to create robot, modeling ‘real-life engineering’ By FELIX SARVER

fsarver@shawmedia.com JOLIET – Joliet high school students unveiled their latest mechanical creation that will appear in upcoming robotics competitions – Cerberus. The Joliet Cyborgs’ robot takes its name from the three-headed hound of Greek mythology because it has three major functions it will need when it competes in the Central Illinois Regional and Midwest Regional FIRST Robotics Competitions in March and April. The student team gave a presentation to an audience showcasing those functions Thursday. Cerberus picked up a big plastic gear, picked up and shot whiffle balls and – to the amazement of the audience – climbed up a rope. Students put together Cerberus under a tight six-week schedule with limited resources and under strict rules in accordance with the FIRST Robotics Competition. Student Nick Machacek, one of the Joliet Cyborgs’ design team leaders, said work on Cerberus was still happening Wednesday, and he was working late on the finishing touches. “We still have a little bit more time to calibrate everything,” Machacek said. Joliet Cyborgs was founded in 2011 and will participate in the Midwest Regional FIRST Robotics Competition for the sixth year in a row. The team is divided into groups focused on building, programming, design, media and organization. Each group has several student leaders. The Midwest Regional FIRST Robotics Competition pairs high school students with mentors to design, build and program a robot to compete in a sports-like event, according to Joliet High School District 204. The experience of building a robot prepares students for work in the engineering field, said Thomas Connelly, a Joliet Central High School physics and chemistry teacher. Connelly is one of many mentors for Joliet Cyborgs. Other teachers, alumni and workers from local companies served as mentors. “The whole thought behind it is we want to make this as close to a

real-life engineering situation as possible, where you have a deadline, there’s certain specifications you have to meet. ... There’s a price limit, too,” Connelly said. He said Cerberus is a “really solid robot” and resembles a tank. When the 12-volt car battery-powered robot came alive Thursday night, it initially made a whirring noise and scooted around the room. Cerberus first picked up a gear and then started to pick up whiffle balls to shoot. After that, the Cyborgs team demonstrated how Cerberus was able to pull on a rope and climb up.

UNDERSTANDING JOLIET’S STANCE

Joliet officials wanted to make key points on immigration By BOB OKON

bokon@shawmedia.com JOLIET – City officials at a meeting on immigration issues this week repeatedly said Joliet police are doing nothing more or less than they had in the past. The official police policy, Chief Brian Benton said, is that police do not get involved in immigration matters, although a couple of people in the audience suggested otherwise. “At no time has the Joliet Police Department been asked to or proactively enforced immigration laws,” Benton said at the start of the meeting. “We don’t have either the resources or the training to do the job of ICE officials.” ICE, the acronym for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, was one of the big topics of the Wednesday meeting that attracted several hundred people to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. Benton and Mayor Bob O’Dekirk both said that Joliet does not plan to take on the job of ICE.

But they also stressed that they would do nothing to stand in the way of ICE. “I believe it’s a mistake for the city of Joliet to say we are going to openly defy the federal government and we’re not going to follow the law,” O’Dekirk said. O’Dekirk said Joliet does not intend to become a sanctuary city, saying it could bring unwanted attention. The mayor pointed to the weekend raids by ICE in Chicago and said its sanctuary city status did nothing to stop the federal government. Joliet’s position could be tested by President Trump’s new version of his executive order on immigration, which he said in a Thursday news conference would be filed next week. The community meeting, which doubled as a special meeting of the City Council, was called because of concerns that the executive order would turn Joliet police into immigration agents. “A lot of people think that the executive order makes local law enforcement immigration officials. This is not the case,” said Moises Barraza, an immigration attorney at the meeting. But, Barraza said, the previous order did carry the threat that local communities could lose federal funds if they do not enforce immigration laws. Benton said Thursday that communities across the country are following the litigation over the executive order to gauge the potential effect. “If President Trump follows up on

Several hundred Joliet residents listen to members of the Joliet City Council discuss local and federal immigration policies Wednesday during a special session of the council at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Joliet. his threat to withhold federal money from cities that don’t enforce immigration law, the cities could be hit hard,” Benton said. He added that Joliet police would not refuse to make an arrest on an ICE warrant, just as it would not ignore a warrant from the FBI or Drug Enforcement Administration. But during ordinary police activity, immigration status should not be questioned, he said. Benton, however, said that an arrestee’s fingerprints typically are

processed once they go to Will County Jail. The county, he said, sends fingerprints to the FBI, and that information could be shared with ICE. The main purpose of the meeting, O’Dekirk said, was to get out the word on what Joliet’s position is amid the many questions rising about the future of immigration enforcement. He told the gathering at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, “We’re hoping that this will reverberate with people, and they understand exactly what the city of Joliet’s position is.”

Will County welcomes grant deals on transportation, fighting opioids By MIKE MALLORY

mmallory@shawmedia.com JOLIET – The Will County Board gave the green light on Thursday for the county to enter into two grant agreements. The first grant, approved unanimously, will bring in $750,000 from the Illinois Department of Transportation and go toward the Will County Community Friendly Freight Mobility Study, which is aimed at guiding the future of freight transportation systems throughout the county. The county has contracted with former Illinois Secretary of Transportation Ann Schneider to oversee the study, which is being performed by firm CDM Smith. The county is

hoping the results of the comprehensive look at various transportation systems and workforce mobility will make it a desirable candidate for state and federal grants. These high-dollar transportation grants would be used for projects such as the widening and redesign of Interstate 80 and Interstate 55. The Will County Center for Economic Development also is contributing $50,000 to the study. The County Board’s executive committee also has discussed keeping Schneider in a retainer role for three years, but the cost to do so has not been decided. Will County Executive Office Chief of Staff Nick Palmer has said the total cost of the study with all components involved will be about

$1.3 million. In other news, the County Board unanimously approved entry into the Illinois Prevent Prescription Drug/ Opioid Overdose-related Deaths uniform grant agreement. The Illinois Department of Human Services awarded $122,500 a year for five years to the county to go toward ongoing efforts to combat its drug and opioid epidemic. These and other funds within the county’s existing budget will pay for a program that still is being laid out. Palmer has said about two-thirds of the costs will be covered by the grant. Approval Thursday allowed the county to officially bring on Dr. Kathleen Burke, president and owner of addiction-fighting and recovery

organization Strategic Prevention, to be a project coordinator. She has been working “for free” Palmer said, as the grant processing takes place. She will now be on the county’s payroll. With the help of the grant, the county will expand opioid community education, work for more grants and coordinate awareness and prevention activities. Nearly 80 people died in the county in 2016 from a heroin or opioid-related overdose. “This has been a long time coming,” board member Laurie Summers, D-Crete, said. “I’m very excited about this, not only on a professional level but a personal level. I applaud Will County for bringing this forward.”

Former Joliet library’s ‘Miss Sheila’ shares reading By FELIX SARVER

fsarver@shawmedia.com LOCKPORT – Sheila Kinsella, also known as “Miss Sheila,” decided to read yet another story to children at Fairmont School District 89. Kinsella, a former youth services programming associate for the Joliet Public Library, came to the school district Thursday to delight students with the tale of “Tops & Bottoms,” by Janet Stevens. The story – involving a bear and a hare – is about the philosophy of “laziness as opposed to ambition,” Kinsella said. “The bear is lazy and tired, and the [hare] – he’s going for everything. … In the long run, they live happily ever after,” she said. Kinsella said Thursday’s visit was her first invitation to read to children since she retired from the Joliet Public Library in January. Kinsella read stories for the library with a stuffed bear she calls Jamberry, engaged children with songs and played a tambourine. Jamberry made a special appearance at the district. Kinsella introduced him to the pre-kindergarten students, saying he thinks he’s a smart bear who can guess what they had for breakfast. She gave Jamberry three guesses:

sweet pickles – some students said they had some – green eggs and ham; and peanuts and popcorn. “Oh, Jamberry, aren’t these kids wonderful?” Kinsella said, encouraging the students to clap. The story of “Tops & Bottoms” involves a crafty hare who strikes a deal

with a lazy and wealthy bear to work the bear’s land and split the crops in half. However, the bear does not end up benefiting from the deal. After Kinsella’s reading, the students colored cards featuring characters from the book that were taped together in a quilt. One student said to

Kinsella she loved Jamberry. “You like the bear? I love him, too. You know, he’s my friend,” she said. Kinsella let many of the students take turns hugging Jamberry. “This is so simple just to come out to the children and read a story,” she said.

idents’ concerns by making buildings smaller, increasing locations and sizes of berms and fencing, and increasing buffer zones from residences to be “far beyond” city code requirements,” City Administrator Ben Benson said Wednesday. McGill presented the latest changes to the concept plan at the meeting. They include moving a north-south road and building adjacent to Lockport Heights 110 feet further east to increase the distance from the subdivision’s residents, who he acknowledged will be affected the most by the development. City code requires only a 60-foot buffer zone, but Prologis has now increased it to 223 feet. Tracy and Denise King, Lockport Heights residents who are close to that area and have been vocal opponents of the development, said after the vote they were skeptical yet “hopeful” that the city and Prologis would be able to mitigate the effects increased truck activity will have on their quality of life. “We will [continue] to attend every meeting,” Tracy said. Basile, who did not speak Wednesday, did say after the meeting that he will “let go” of the matter, but will frequently test his water and look out for unusual health issues that his animals, “who come from pristine environments,” might experience. If his animals do start showing neurological, liver or kidney problems, as he has been warned by experts might be a result of exposure to diesel fumes, he will have to relocate them and shut down the ranch, he said. “The main [issue] for me will be the loss of the hundreds of thousands of children who have been coming [to the ranch] and my love for [these] animals,” he said. “The only reason I’m still doing this is the kids.”

Essex Twp. clerk arrested, charged with stealing $94K ESSEX TOWNSHIP – The Essex Township clerk was arrested Thursday for allegedly using taxpayer money for personal expenses, according to the Illinois Attorney General’s Office. Tracy Freytag, 50, was arrested in South Carolina and will be brought to Kankakee to face felony charges, according to a news release from the attorney general. Essex Township is in Kankakee County and is located along the southern edge of Will County near Braidwood.

Freytag allegedly deposited $94,000 of Essex Township checks into a personal bank account and used taxpayer money for personal expenses, including two trips to Florida. Investigators uncovered problems when a township employee reported that his payroll check had bounced, the release stated. One investigator with Federal Deposit Insurance Corp looked into the situation and found that the township account at the State Bank of Herscher had been depleted. Attorney General Lisa Madigan alleges that Freytag deposited township

checks into Freytag’s personal bank account between November 2014 and May 2016. As clerk, Freytag had access to township bank accounts and was able to write checks on those accounts, the release stated. Freytag could face up to 15 years in prison if convicted on charges that include theft of government property, financial institution fraud and official misconduct, according to the release. The attorney general credited the Kankakee County Sheriff’s Office and the Aiken Police Department in South Carolina for assistance. Freytag was arrested in Aiken.

LOCKPORT – The Lockport City Council has approved an early plan for an almost 2 million-square-foot industrial park that has caused strife between residents and the city for months. After listening to more angry pleas from numerous residents – some accusing the city of “apathy” – on Wednesday night, council members unanimously approved a concept plan for Prologis to build a five-building industrial park on a 200-acre site located south of 143rd Street, between Archer Avenue and Interstate 355. The property is bordered by the nonprofit Big Run Wolf Ranch, which houses a number of endangered species, as well as four Lockport subdivisions to the south and the Lockport Heights subdivision in unincorporated Will County to the north. Ranch owner John Basile and numerous other residents have packed the city’s planning and zoning commission and city council meetings since last fall. Many have passionately voiced concerns about the effect increased truck activity and diesel fumes might have on the safety and health of residents and the ranch’s animals, as well as the possibility of a negative effect on property values. As of Thursday, a petition against the industrial park had 3,320 supporters. Opponents raised the same concern again Wednesday. Stanley Quade outlined the numerous times lost trucks have ended up on his street, adding that the industrial park would not bring the “kind of business Lockport residents want.” “If I’m not mistaken, election time is coming,” he said, getting loud applause from the crowd that was smaller than at

previous meetings. “We all know you’re voting ‘yes,’ ” said Nancy Hockenberry, adding that the council members “don’t care” about the effort residents have put into researching and speaking out against the development. Renee Cajandig, an employee at Big Run, said that “environmental concern is paramount” and added that she was “surprised by the apathy” of the city and Prologis. Gerald Sipla said that state agencies such as the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency still needed to approve the plan and that the city should await their approval. Mayor Steven Streit and council members reiterated the city’s stance that it had to allow the concept plan to move forward because of the owner’s legal right to build on property that has industrial zoning that, for the most part, predates any of the city’s adjacent residential neighborhoods. Streit and Alderman Jason VanderMeer expressed dismay that residents felt the city has been apathetic to their concerns, adding that the council and city staff have been working for months to get concessions from the developer to “mitigate” the presence of the industrial park. Streit said one concession includes an agreement with Prologis to allow the city to market the part of the property closest to Archer Avenue to retail businesses in order to replace one of the proposed warehouses with a strip mall. Prologis Representative Jim McGill confirmed in a later phone interview that the developer is open to changing the zoning in that area from industrial to commercial, contingent upon definite interest from retail businesses in building there. The concept plan has been modified repeatedly since last fall to address res-

Standard power is a 1.4-liter turbo engine with direct injection putting out 153 horsepower, paired with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Stop/Start technologies and electric power steering are standard with, on Premier models, a Z-link rear suspension.

The all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox delivers on all counts,” said Steve Majoros, director of marketing, Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers. The interior design takes advantage of the Equinox’s all-new architecture to offer a down-and-away instrument panel, with a low windshield base providing a commanding view. The spacious interior offers a dual-cockpit design with an integrated center stack that puts everything within easy reach. Connectivity technology include a standard 7- and available 8-inch-diagonal color touchscreen with MyLink infotainment designed to support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an available OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

The 2017 Cruze Hatch offers the design, engineering and technological advancements of the Cruze sedan in a functional, sporty package with added cargo space.

Cruze Hatch buyers will enjoy the flexibility of 47.2 cubic feet of rear cargo room with the back seats flipped down.

The all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox features an expressive exterior with an all-new, athletic look echoing the global Chevrolet design cues seen on vehicles such as the Cruze.

Standard and available safety features include a 360-degree camera, forward-collision alert, low-speed forward automatic braking, lane-change alert, lane-keep assist with lane-departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert and Teen Driver. There are three engines: a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 170 hp, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 252 hp, and a 1.6-liter turbocharged diesel four-cylinder with 136 hp.

Yes, you can have it all. That seems to be the strategy behind Chevrolet’s all-new 2018 Equinox and the 2017 Cruze Hatch, at least when it comes to safety, convenience, versatility, comfort, technology, style and fuel economy. And, well, what more is there? Both are attention magnets at the Chevrolet display at the Chicago Auto Show, but you can also get a personal tour, one-on-one contact and maybe a test drive at a local dealership. Either way, Equinox and Cruze are attention-grabbers. Chevrolet says Cruze is its best-selling car world-wide, and it’s easy to see why, especially with the “Hatch” hatchback model added to the lineup. The Cruze lineup is offered in L, LS, LT and Premier, and an expressive RS package featuring unique front and rear fascias, rocker panels, rear spoiler and fog lamps. Premier models add 18-inch wheels. The 2017 Cruze Hatch is offered in LT and Premier trims, and with the RS package. The Cruze Hatch has the same class-leading 106.3-inch wheelbase as sedan models, but features a unique roof and rear-end structure, including wraparound taillamps and an integrated spoiler at the top of the liftgate. It opens to offer 22.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat. With the rear seat folded, cargo space expands to 47.2 cubic feet. Cruze offers a segment-exclusive standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility via the MyLink radio systems and available 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot. It also lays claim to more standard safety features than any other compact car, with available adaptive features including Lane Keep Assist, Rear Cross

GMC’s all-new 2018 Terrain takes the brand in a bold new direction in the compact SUV market, boosting a lineup that includes the popular Acadia luxury SUV and the stalwart Silverado 1500 pickup. All are featured at the Chicago Auto Show, but you can get a closer, more personal look at your dealership, and perhaps arrange a test drive. The new Terrain’s bold exterior signals the next chapter of GMC’s design language, evolving the brand’s signature cues with stronger, sharper and more sculpted elements. Its shape was refined in the wind tunnel to help ensure the distinctive profile cuts through the air with optimal efficiency and quietness. “It is a striking design with functional beauty,” said Helen Emsley, executive director, Global GMC Design. “There’s confidence and optimism in its stance, with exceptional attention to detail that speaks to GMC’s rise as a premium brand.” Terrain’s boldness extends far beyond looks, with such features as GM’s Electronic Precision Shift, which replaces the conventional shifter with electronically-controlled gear selection consisting of intuitive push buttons and pull triggers. Also standard is a driver-controllable Traction Select system, which optimizes throttle response and fuel economy for the selected driving mode. Available engines include a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 170 horsepower, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 252 hp, and a 1.6-liter diesel four-cylinder with 137 horsepower. The gas engines are linked with a nine-speed automatic transmission, while the diesel is matched with a six-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is offered in all models,

The audience clapped when the robot reached the top. When asked about the teams’ chances at upcoming competitions, student Jason Kollross, one of the build team leaders of the Joliet Cyborgs, said he was confident because Cerberus’ design has worked well. “I think our prospects this year are very good. I think it’s a very wellbuilt robot,” he said. He said the most challenging part of the project was the shooter and

containment components of Cerberus. Student Rosie Huerta, a build team leader, said the project was tough, but students received a lot of academic support. The team was able to engage and talk with others at community events as well, she said. When the students were creating the robot and applying their knowledge, Huerta said the students were able to narrow their focus in a field that interests them. She said she personally aspires to become an aerospace engineer. “We’ve been able to find our passion,” she said.

Will County transportation head retires after 40 years Auto Dealer By MIKE MALLORY

mmallory@shawmedia.com JOLIET – Will County Director of Transportation Bruce Gould is retiring after four decades. “Forty years ago, I was just a young snot-nosed kid right out of school,” Gould said to the County Board on Thursday during his last meeting in the role. “I didn’t know anything about county government when I started here. And you know what, 40 years later, I’m an old snot-nosed kid and I’m still trying to figure it out.” Gould thanked the Will County Executive’s Office, county departments and board members for their support. He has spent the past nine years as head of the division of transportation. “I appreciate that support,” Gould said. “We couldn’t get anything done in the county without all the support of all of you, and we’ve done a lot of work in 40 years.” He said he could talk about projects all day, but the most significant in his time occurred in 2008 and 2009, when the board passed a resolution for the Build Will program with a $100 million bond issuance. “At that time, our region, the entire country was in dire straits because of the downturn in the economy,” he

said. “And you all stepped forward and passed the largest infrastructure improvement program in the history of Will County.” Gould noted the jobs created by the program and the projects that were its result. He said he considered everyone friends after 40 years. “Bruce Gould, I’m gonna miss you … I think,” County Board Speaker Jim Moustis, R-Frankfort, joked toward the end of the meeting. “He always had a standard that did not bend from good solid principles of transportation,” Moustis said. “You’ve done a great job. I don’t think any county engineer had the privilege of doing as many road projects and had such a large impact on this county and transportation as you did.” On Thursday, the board unanimously approved the hire of Jeffrey Ronaldson, one of Gould’s top assistants, to replace him. Ronaldson will be paid $155,000 for his first year. His contract goes through 2023. “You made a great selection to move along with everything we’ve been doing here and for the future,” Gould said of the Ronaldson hire. Gould’s retirement caused a chain of promotions in the division of transportation.

Trucker sentenced to 10 years in prison for crash that killed 5 By BRIAN STANLEY

bstanley@shawmedia.com JOLIET – A truck driver who fell asleep at the wheel and killed five people in a 2014 crash on Interstate 55 was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in prison. However, Francisco Espinal-Quiroz, 53, will be eligible for parole after serving half of his sentence and has credit for two and a half years Francisco spent in the Will County Espinaljail. Quiroz Espinal-Quiroz pleaded guilty to five counts of reckless homicide and one count of falsifying his logbook. At 2:15 p.m. July 21, 2014, Espinal-Quiroz was traveling 15 mph over the speed limit when his red Freightliner slammed into three vehicles backed up in the northbound lanes while traffic was stalled by construc-

tion 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 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. Espinal-Quiroz started work that day 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.

District 30-C considers grade system change By ANNA SCHIER

aschier@shawmedia.com SHOREWOOD – Troy School District 30-C is considering changing its grading system for students in grades five through eight. At the school board’s committee of the whole meeting Wednesday, district officials addressed the possibility of transitioning fifth- to eighth-grade students to standards-based grading, Superintendent Todd Koehl said. Standards-based grading measures long-term growth and understanding using a scale of one to four, rather

than the traditional letter grade system, and is driven by skill development as opposed to lesson content, Koehl said Thursday. District 30-C already uses standards-based grading for its students in grades four and under. “I think it better reflects the learning process,” Koehl said. He said he expects the district will spend about a year exploring the potential grading system change, and that district officials will discuss the option with faculty, parents and school board members. Also Wednesday, during the school

Two men charged after Shorewood home invasion The HERALD–NEWS SHOREWOOD – Two men were arrested Wednesday after they allegedly forced their way into a Shorewood home. Shorewood Deputy Police Chief Eric Allen said in a statement police were called at 5:55 p.m. to the 300 block of Cardinal Place after a man heard his neighbor Omarr I. Fahim screaming for help. Officers arrived to find a 64-year-old man who had sustained cuts to his upper body. “After the arrestees forced their way into the home by breaking the front door jam, they prevented the victim from exiting his own residence,” Allen said in the statement. “The two

Espinal-Quiroz is a Mennonite who has led Bible study groups while in jail, witnesses testified on his behalf Thursday. A native of Honduras, he became a naturalized citizen in 2008 and lived near an Amish community. He and his wife have been married 27 years, have two children and are expecting their first grandchild. “I don’t have one powerful word that can explain how I feel about it. All I can say is [I’m] so sorry,” Espinal-Quiroz told the victims’ families in the courtroom. “The night before the accident, I sleep good. ... I fell asleep in the parking lot [earlier], I thought everything

offenders fled on foot out the back door prior to the officers’ arrival.” The victim was cut during a struggle when he attempted to leave. He was treated for wounds that were not life-threatening by the Troy Fire Protection District. During the investigation, police went to the Joliet Inn at 19747 Northeast Frontage Road and Pierre arrested Omarr I. Fahim, 26, of Chicago and L. Cole Pierre L. Cole, 27, of Joliet. Fahim and Cole were charged with battery, criminal trespassing and unlawful restraint. “This incident was not random and all parties involved were acquainted to some degree,” Allen said in the statement.

was normal. I never thought about [being sleepy]. I thought, ‘What’s going to happen?’ ” he said. “When so many innocent people I hit with this truck. I don’t want to hurt nobody in my life.” Prosecutors had asked Judge David Carlson to sentence Espinal-Quiroz to 15 years in prison, although he also was eligible for probation. Will County Assistant State’s Attorney Derek Ewanic said a prison sentence was necessary to deter others. “He chose to drive that semi when he knew he was tired,” Ewanic said. “In Will County, we seem to have more truck traffic than other counties, and I have to say that is a concern of this court,” Carlson said. “Is this [sentence] sending a message? Perhaps, but I don’t know if anyone’s going to listen to it.”

board’s regular meeting, board members approved a tax abatement resolution for an early $2.5 million bond payment that will reduce the district’s tax rate, Koehl said. All board members present voted in favor of the measure. Treasurer Anne Carney was absent. Koehl said such abatement payments are made by the district every three or four years and that this most recent payment is part of the district’s financial plan. Without the early payment, Koehl said, the district’s projected tax rate would have increased by 24 cents

based on the 2016 tax levy. As a result of the abatement payment, the rate will instead go up 5 cents. Koehl was unable to provide the district’s exact tax rate, as it will not be finalized until the equalized assessed value is determined in the spring. In addition, the board voted Wednesday to approve the district’s fees for the 2017-18 school year. All fees will remain the same, with the exception of the eighth-grade graduation fee, which will be $40 instead of $35 and will be combined with the eighth-grade registration fee, for a total cost $240.

AG to appeal denial of request to halt worker pay

BELLEVILLE – A judge on Thursday denied a request by the Illinois attorney general to stop paying state workers unless lawmakers resolve an ongoing budget impasse. Attorney General Lisa Madigan said she will appeal the judge’s ruling, noting the state’s constitution requires an enacted appropriation for state spending. “Under the current injunction, the state has spent over $3 billion in taxpayer money without any transparency or legislative debate as required by law.” Madigan said in a statement. “The

governor is using this injunction to avoid following the Constitution and enacting a budget, irreparably harming the people of Illinois.” St. Clair County Circuit Judge Robert LeChien refused to reverse a previous court order requiring Illinois to pay state employees in the absence of a spending plan. Madigan argued stopping pay would hasten a budget agreement. Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner has criticized Madigan’s legal move, suggesting the daughter of House Speaker Michael Madigan wanted to create a “crisis” that would shut down the government.

College admissions bill advances in Illinois House

SPRINGFIELD – An Illinois House committee has cleared a proposal that would require public universities to admit first-time freshman applicants who finish with a GPA in the top 10 percent of their

high school’s graduating class. The House Higher Education Committee passed the bill Wednesday despite opposition from the University of Illinois and the Illinois Board of Higher Education, The News-Gazette reported. Democratic Rep. Andre Thapedi of Chicago sponsored the bill, noting that the University of Illinois’ Urbana campus has 5.4 percent black enrollment. Higher percentages are reported at the school’s Chicago and Springfield campuses. “Clearly, our universities are not diverse,” he said. “And I think it’s important to recognize we’re talking about our best and our brightest students. “We’re not just talking about kids who are looking to just get over to get into the university. These are kids who are performing in their high schools, but for one reason or another, the universities opt not to admit them. So now we want to give them that opportunity.”

Minn. man shot by Amtrak officer in Chicago dies

CHICAGO – A Minneapolis man who was shot by Amtrak police near Chicago’s Union Station has died. Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said 25-year-old Chad Robertson died Wednesday, one week after being shot. Robertson was taking a bus from Memphis, Tennessee, to Minneapolis and was on a stopover in Chicago when the shooting occurred. According to family members, the transit officer fired at Robertson as he ran during an encounter near Union Station. The officer reportedly fired twice, striking Robertson once in the left shoulder. Guglielmi said the man’s wounds were not considered life-threatening at the time. He said the wounded man was found with cash and narcotics, but was unarmed.

NATION & WORLD BRIEFS Man pleads guilty to buying than two years. The bomber entered the main rifles in California attack

RIVERSIDE, Calif. – A California man who bought high-powered rifles used in the San Bernardino terrorist attack pleaded guilty Thursday as the father of one of the victims angrily denounced the plea deal as a “slap on the wrist.” Enrique Marquez Jr. appeared in federal court in Riverside with his hands cuffed and chained to his waist. He sounded choked up after the prosecutor described what he had done. Marquez told the judge he had dropped out of high school and college but understood the allegations and the consequences of the plea agreement with prosecutors that could bring him up to 25 years in prison while sparing him a trial. Gregory Clayborn, the father of one of the people killed, opposed the deal in an impassioned plea to the judge before the hearing. “This man supplied these murderers with these weapons and he’s going to get a slap on the wrist, your honor,” Clayborn said, his voice cracking as he described the pain of losing his 27-year-old daughter, Sierra.

Trump raps ‘criminal’ leaks, ‘dishonest’ media By JULIE PACE

The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Aggrieved and spoiling for a fight, Donald Trump used a marathon encounter with reporters Thursday to denounce the “criminal” leaks that took down his top national security adviser and revived questions about his own ties to Russia. But he offered only a lawyerly denial that his campaign aides had been in touch with Russian officials before last fall’s election. “Nobody that I know” he said in the first full-length news conference of his presidency. The 77-minute event amounted to a free-wheeling airing of complaints, with the new president attempting to find his footing after the rockiest launch in recent memory. Trump slammed a “bad court” of appeals judges for blocking his refugee and immigration executive order and denied that his White House was paralyzed by chaos and infighting among top advisers. “This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine,” he boasted. With his signature hyperbole betrayed by reality, Trump said there has never been a president “who in this short period of time has done what we’ve done.” He blamed any problems on the outgoing Obama administration – “I inherited a mess at home and abroad” – and the news media. Standing in the stately, chandeliered East Room, Trump lambasted the “out of control” media – long his favorite foe. He appeared to delight in jousting with reporters, repeatedly interrupting their questions and singling out stories he disagreed with, well aware his attacks were sure to be cheered by loyal supporters who share his views. Polls show Trump retains support among Republicans, and solid majorities of Americans said he is following

President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference Thursday in the East Room of the White House in Washington, D.C. through on his promises and is viewed as a strong leader, according to a Gallup survey. But on other questions Americans express deep reservations. Majorities said he doesn’t inspire confidence and is not honest and trustworthy. Trump’s job approval rating is much lower than those of past presidents at the same point in their administrations. According to a Pew Research Center survey, 39 percent of Americans approve of his job performance while 56 percent disapprove. Trump’s first month in office has been chaotic by any measure – a flurry of self-inflicted wounds and poorly executed policy. On Monday, he demanded the resignation of his national security adviser Michael Flynn after revelations that Flynn misled Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with Russia. The next day, The New York Times reported that multiple Trump advisers were in touch with Russian intelligence advisers during the election campaign. Trump panned the report as “fake news” and said he had “nothing to do with Russia.” “To the best of my knowledge no person that I deal with does,” he said.

That answer, couched with a caveat similar to one routinely used by witnesses testifying under oath, appeared to give him wiggle room. The president more clearly defended Flynn’s calls with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. during the transition period after his November victory. He said that while he did not tell his adviser to discuss sanctions with the envoy, “I would have directed him if he didn’t do it.” The president said that while Flynn was “just doing his job,” he was “not happy” that the adviser had misled the vice president. Trump knew for some time that Flynn had given Pence an inaccurate accounting of his discussions with Russia, but the president did not tell his No. 2 for about two weeks, according to a timeline supplied by the White House. The president has yet to announce Flynn’s replacement. His top choice, Vice Admiral Robert Harward, turned down the job Thursday, largely because of family concerns, according to a White House official who would not be named because Harward’s decision has not been publicly announced.

24 Protesters participate in a march aimed squarely at President Donald Trump’s efforts to crack down on immigration Thursday in Chicago. AP photo

Immigrants across U.S. take day off to protest By ERRIN HAINES WHACK The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA – The heart of Philadelphia’s Italian Market was uncommonly quiet. Fine restaurants in New York, San Francisco and the nation’s capital closed for the day. Grocery stores, food trucks, coffee shops, diners and taco joints in places like Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston shut down. Immigrants around the U.S. stayed home from work and school Thursday to demonstrate how important they are to America’s economy, and many businesses closed in solidarity, in a nationwide protest called A Day Without Immigrants. The boycott was aimed squarely at President Donald Trump’s efforts to step up deportations, build a wall at the Mexican border and close the nation’s doors to many travelers. Organizers said they expected thousands to participate or otherwise show support. It was unclear how many people participated, but in many cities, the actions were disruptive, if not halting. More actions are being planned for May 1 – known as May Day, the internationally recognized holiday honoring workers. “I fear every day whether I am going to make it back home. I don’t know if my mom will make it home,” said Hessel Duarte, a 17-year-old native of Honduras who lives in Austin, Texas, with his family and skipped class at his high school to take part in one of several rallies held around the country. Duarte said he arrived in the U.S. at age 5 to escape gang violence. The protest even reached into the U.S. Capitol, where a Senate coffee shop was among the eateries that were closed when employees did not show up at work. Organizers appealed to immigrants

from all walks of life to take part, but the effects were felt most strongly in the restaurant industry, which has long been a first step up the economic ladder for newcomers to America with its many jobs for cooks, dishwashers and servers. Restaurant owners with immigrant roots of their own were among those acting in solidarity with workers. Expensive restaurants and fast-food joints alike closed, some perhaps because they had no choice, others because of what they said was sympathy for their immigrant employees. Sushi bars, Brazilian steakhouses, Mexican eateries and Thai and Italian restaurants all turned away lunchtime customers. “The really important dynamic to note is this is not antagonistic, employee-against-employer,” said Janet Murguia, president of the Hispanic rights group National Council of La Raza. “This is employers and workers standing together, not in conflict.” She added: “Businesses cannot function without immigrant workers today.” At a White House news conference held as the lunch-hour protests unfolded, Trump boasted of his border security measures and immigration arrests of hundreds of people in the past week, saying, “We are saving lives every single day.” Since the end of 2007, the number of foreign-born workers employed in the U.S. has climbed by nearly 3.1 million to 25.9 million; they account for 56 percent of the increase in U.S. employment over that period, according to the Labor Department. About 12 million people are employed in the restaurant industry, and immigrants make up the majority – up to 70 percent in places such as New York and Chicago, according to the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, which works to improve working conditions.

SPRINGFIELD – VIEWS What is it about Illinois Democrats and political Scott dynasties? Reeder I’ve never quite understood it. But for whatever reason the Illinois Democratic Party seems strangely drawn not just to individuals but to whole families. Think about it: the Madigans, the Daleys, the Stevensons, the Simons, the Hynes, the Jacksons and the Cullertons. And, of course, the Republicans are in no way immune to dynasties. Look no further than the Bush family on a national level. But when you get down to the state level in the Land of Lincoln, the Democrats seem to have a leg up on making politics a family affair. And now, with Chris Kennedy announcing his candidacy for Illinois governor, it looks like they are on the way to importing a dynasty from elsewhere. (Chris is the son of U.S. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and the nephew of President John F. Kennedy.) Members of the Kennedy clan not only have been elected in their home base of Massachusetts but also in New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maryland and California. I guess some folks are asking: Why not add Illinois to that list? Well, Illinois government is a mess. And I’m not sure if someone who views politics as a birthright is always the best choice. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. But I’ll admit to occasionally voting for members of political dynasties. For example, when I lived in Rock Island I voted for state Sen. Denny Jacobs. His dad, Oral, was a longtime state representative. And his son, Mike, took over Denny’s seat in the state Senate. But I can’t say I ever voted for someone because I liked who they were related to. But many people apparently do. And politicians count on it. For example, former Illinois lieutenant governor Sheila Simon tried to get elected to the state senate last year. She, of course, is the daughter of Paul Simon, who served the U.S. Senate and was a beloved Illinois political figure. So, this was the top headline on her campaign website during her latest run: “Like father, like daughter: Comparing Sheila and Paul Simon.” Ugh. She was running for office – not her dad. Voters must not have been too impressed either. They chose Republican Paul Schimpf, who had never held political office before, over the daughter of a former U.S. senator. Many folks are figuring it’s the political establishment who got us in this mess in the first place, why vote for someone with an all too familiar name? After all, when choosing our leaders, we ought to ask more than “Who’s your daddy?”

Politics, a family affair

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Trump got around to hurting animals too

To the Editor: As he was signing edicts hurting one group after another over the past few weeks, it was only a matter of time before Donald Trump got around to hurting animals – already the most oppressed sentient beings on earth. The animals’ turn came by taking down the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) site that reports on government regulation of roughly 9,000 animal handling facilities. These are laboratories, dog breeders, fur farms, circuses, zoos, and aquariums. The site is used every day by animal protection activists to monitor government enforcement of the 1966 Animal Welfare Act, the only effective federal law protecting animals. Taking down the APHIS inspection site is a huge setback for animal protection. It will almost certainly lead to reduced government inspection of animal facilities and more animal suffering – a virtual repeal of the Animal Welfare Act.

Ironically, this oppressive act was launched by the same dark-of-night process as that of pulling more than 100,000 visas from thoroughly vetted Muslim immigrants one week earlier – no notice, no hearings, no due process, no public announcement. The oppressive mindset doesn’t really care who the victims are. Hopefully, the courts will. Sincerely, James Henderson

To the Editor: Thank you for coming and covering our rally “Bolingbrook rally seeks blocking of Trump’s EPA nominee.” I attended the rally because I can no longer just watch all that we have slip away from us. I have to do something to help save our clean air, water we drink, food we eat, and the earth. Trump’s EPA pick, Scott Pruitt, has a long history of fighting against regulations that protect our environment. He is motivated by greed, to put more money

in the pockets of the already wealthy by spending less on the general welfare of all. Jan Lewsader

U.S. is wonderful because of its diversity

To the Editor: With all the recent turmoil and deep concerns over immigration laws and their future implications for a multitude of hard-working American citizens, a few positive thoughts come to mind. I hope and pray that those politicians making these decisions fully realize that the United States of America is wonderfully comprised by many proud, hard-working and loyal immigrants that represent a beautifully diverse set of religious beliefs, races, ethnicities, sexual preferences and political allegiances/views. It is and always will be the country where immigrants seeking a small piece of the American dream are freely allowed to do so.

RAE’S EARLY ARRIVAL

Lewis husband-wife volleyball coaches give back with ‘Playing for Preemies’ By KAITLYN JASNICA

kjasnica@shawmedia.com ROMEOVILLE – Lewis women’s volleyball coach Lorelee Smith got the weekly alert on her phone. Many expecting moms know about the My Pregnancy Today application. This week, her daughter Rae was the size of a large mango and was developing blood vessels in her lungs. With 17 weeks left before the expected arrival, there still was a lot of development that needed to occur, but on that Sunday everything was on track. Three days later, Smith’s husband, Dan Friend, came home and found his wife bent over, crying in pain. They called the doctor and rushed to the hospital. Smith was going into early labor at 23 weeks and three days. “They throw all these numbers at you in the beginning,” said Friend, Lewis’ men’s volleyball coach. “They said, ‘Right now she’s at the 30-40 percent success rate. If we make it to 24 weeks, it jumps up to a 60-70 percent success rate.’ It’s a lot. They’re throwing these numbers at you about the likelihood of vitality and the mental disorders or cerebral palsy – or, she just wouldn’t be able to breathe right. “All of these things start coming at you, and Lorelee and I said we want to do everything possible so Rae could survive. We were willing to do anything to get us to where we needed to be.” Smith took steroid and magnesium shots to help develop some of Rae’s vital organs and to slow the contractions. If they made it four more days, their little girl would have a much higher success rate.

GIVING BACK

On Sunday, June 5, 2016, exactly on week 24, Smith and Friend welcomed

Lewis volleyball coaches Dan Friend and Lorelee Smith welcomed Rae Analyn Friend into the world on June 5, 2016. Rae was born 1 pound, 8 ounces and 12 inches. She is considered to be a micro-preemie. Rae Analyn Friend into the world at 1 pound, 8 ounces and 12 inches. Rae, who is an adjusted age of 4 months, spent 113 days in Loyola Medical Center’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The NICU helped Rae learn how to breathe and eat, among other things. She received care from Loyola personnel that included Dr. Christine Sajous and Dr. Jonathan Muraskas, and nurses Erica Gibson, Trudy Johnson and Liz Concepcion.

After this experience, the Lewis volleyball coaches wanted to find a way to give back. Women’s assistant coach Rudi Balich came up with an idea from a game the Flyers played against St. Joseph of Indiana a few years ago. The previous head coach, Jill Schopieray, also had a premature baby and asked Lewis to play in their Playing for Preemies game. Balich ran with the idea and helped put together Lewis’ first Playing for

Preemies fundraiser game. In the women’s game, the team sold T-shirts and had a donation bucket. Lewis also donated the entrance fee to the cause. At the end of the night, $2,500 was donated to Loyola’s NICU. “They were super thankful and grateful,” Friend said. “I just wanted to continue it during my season and do another game to bring some awareness as well as find a way to fundraise

some money and donate it to the Loyola NICU that did such a fantastic job. “For lack of better words, they helped our daughter survive. This is our way of saying thank you to them. We can’t put a value or dollar number on what they helped us get through.”

TONIGHT’S GAME

On Friday, Lewis men’s volleyball will host its Playing for Preemies game at 7 p.m. against Ball State. The goal of the fundraiser not only is to raise money for the NICU that helped the family, it also is a means to raise awareness. Like many expectant parents, Friend and Smith were aware of some pregnancy risks. They did early testing for mental disabilities. Not for one second did they ever think about having a micro-premature baby. Immediately after the delivery, they were provided information about preemies and their development and had to quickly educate themselves on the subject. According to MedLine Plus, one of 10 babies are premature. Having a preemie is more common than many believe, but most people still only know

the definition of what a premature baby is. “People may know what it is, but they have no clue what it entails, what it really means or what you would have to go through because it’s not something that you think about,” Smith said. “You know the definition of it, but you really don’t know what it means.” Instead of taking Rae home after a few days, the couple drove 45 minutes twice a day to see their baby in the NICU. It was an emotional test for the parents. “You’d have some ups and downs,” Friend said. “You’d go through the emotional curve of ‘Hey, we’re doing pretty good this week,’ and all of a sudden the next day we’re really struggling.” “For her to be in the hospital for four months, especially for the first two months, you’re just visiting and all you can do is talk through a box,” Smith said. “You can’t change the diaper or really do anything. It’s not by choice that you can’t do anything. There’s a lot of praying. There’s a lot of talking through the box and updating people how she’s doing. “ It was a lot of waiting. A lot of waiting for her lungs to get strong enough that they could open the top of the box and move her from a box to a crib, then take her off oxygen. I think the milestones that you get excited for are not the same as if you went home with the

baby.”

RAE’S MILESTONES

Some milestones included getting Rae off oxygen, breaking the 2-pound mark and opening her eyes. “At first her eyes weren’t open,” Smith said. “Her eyes opened one night with an awesome nurse named Erica. She got a picture of it and they were completely black. They didn’t develop color yet. Then it was when are they going to be open all of the time and when are they going to develop color. So many of the things that normally happen inside, we got to see outside. Those were the first milestones.” After the tough start, Rae is doing great. She went from seeing multiple doctors a week to having a few appointments a month. According to her parents, she is an 11-pound chubby little baby. Even as Rae gets older, Smith and Friend plan to raise awareness on the subject and keep fundraising for Loyola Medical Center’s NICU through Playing for Preemies games. “I’m sure whatever hospital saves your child’s life, you’re going to love them,” Smith said. “The nurses and the doctors there are awesome. They do rounds where if you show up as a parent, you get to sit in while the doctors discuss your child’s case. They’ll ask for your opinion or your input.

“I don’t have a medical background, but the fact that they’ll listen to us and that they’ll have their doctor discussions in front of you is really cool. They’re out in the open. I’m not sure if other hospitals do it that way, but it makes you feel a part of it. “The night nurses Erica and Liz took pictures all the time. Rae looks like a grandpa in one and an alien in another, but we wouldn’t have been able to take those pictures because we weren’t there 24/7. They’d sometimes take videos of her when she was wide awake. She was more awake around 3 a.m. I believe I was only there twice at 3 a.m., so I would have missed all of that if they did not do the video. They care. They really care and that’s nice.” “I think this game is something that Lorelee and I will continue to do as long as we’re coaching here,” Friend said. “I think that it’s one small area where we can fundraise some money and help out. “You hear about Dig for Pink and we’ve even done a game for prostate cancer. The thing that we’re doing is a unique thing that hits home for us. I think it’s great in terms of doing something and fundraising for charity and help out in a small area.” In Friday’s Playing for Preemies game, Lewis will be selling shirts for $20. All proceeds will go to Loyola’s NICU.


GIRLS BASKETBALL: CLASS 4A OSWEGO REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP: BOLINGBROOK 56, MINOOKA 49

By JEFF DeGRAW

Shaw Media correspondent

• Friday, February 17, 2017

OSWEGO – When you have two teams that play similar styles, regardless of the sport, it’s usually a pretty good game. Both teams know how to play against each other because that is what they do every day at practice. That was the case Thursday night as the Minooka and Bolingbrook girls met in the Class 4A Oswego Regional championship game. Bolingbrook (17-9) used a big second quarter and held off the Indians’ late charge to claim an exciting regional title with a 56-49 victory. Having cleared the hurdle of one strong Southwest Prairie Conference opponent in Minooka, the Raiders will face another at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday when they take on Plainfield East in the Aurora East Sectional semifinals. Plainfield East stunned favored Oswego East, 51-48, Thursday in the title game at Plainfield East. One of the outstanding performances Thursday night came from Bolingbrook’s Jahari Smith. The junior scored 15 points, grabbed 16 rebounds, had five blocks and added two steals. “It was a great team win,” she said. “You just go out there and do what you’re supposed to do for the team. I never think about that stat stuff. We want to win as a team.” The Raiders led, 27-17, as the third quarter started, but Minooka cut the lead to 35-29 after the third quarter. However, the Raiders outscored the Indians, 7-1, to start the fourth and built a 42-30 lead, and it looked like it was over. But Minooka (24-4) never gave up, cutting the Raiders’ lead to 49-42 with a minute left. Brooklyn Bachmann then hit a 3-pointer with 42 seconds left to make it 49-45. But Bolingbrook hit the free throws down the stretch to secure the win. “We have to find ways to overcome starting the game slow,” Bolingbrook coach Chris Smith said. “At this time of year, it is important to start well. If we can control our turnovers and get off to a good start, we can play with anyone. We also have to finish. It’s not over until that clock runs out. We let them back in this game tonight.” The first half was a tale of two quarters as Minooka had leads of 7-2 and 11-4 in the initial quarter, but that changed quickly as the second quarter began. With Minooka holding a 14-8 lead after the first quarter, the Raiders’ Gabriella Smith and Arielle McElroy

Gabriella Smith led the Raiders with 17 points. She said she knew they would be in a battle with Minooka. “We knew they were good, and then we started out slow, which it seems to happen a lot,” Smith said. “But then we stepped it up, made our free throws and played well the last

three quarters.” Bolingbrook continued to apply the pressure on both ends of the floor in the quarter, which seemed to bother the Indians as they committed eight second-quarter turnovers. After a free throw by Minooka’s Brooklyn Bachmann, Bolingbrook scored the next 11 points to take a 27-15 lead with 2:18 left before half. Cierra Bachmann finally hit a field goal for the Indians with 2:03 on the clock to make the halftime score

27-17 in favor of the Raiders. “We fought hard for 32 minutes,” Minooka coach Ray Liberatore said. “At this time of the season, you have to make free throws and layups, and tonight we didn’t do that.” Minooka ended the night 15 of 28 from the free-throw line. Brooklyn Bachmann led the Indians with 25 points. She scored 14 of those in the fourth quarter. Cierra Bachmann and Haily Arliss each contributed eight.

32 GIRLS BASKETBALL: CLASS 4A ANDREW REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP: MARIAN CATHOLIC 51, LINCOLN-WAY WEST 37

Lincoln-Way West has rough night vs. Marian Catholic By CURT HERRON

cherron@shawmedia.com TINLEY PARK – Seeking its first regional title since the program’s initial season of 2010, Lincoln-Way West’s girls basketball team knew it would have a difficult challenge against a Marian Catholic squad that entered with a very misleading record. And those fears quickly began to be realized as the Spartans used their height to not only dominate on the boards but also clog up things in the lane. To further complicate matters, coach Ryan White’s Warriors struggled connecting from long range. It all added up to a rough evening for West, which was the third seed in the Class 4A Shepard Sectional. Sixth-seed Marian started to pull away during the final quarter and went on to capture a 51-37 victory in Thursday’s Class 4A Andrew Regional title game. The Spartans (18-13), who have won 16 of their past 22 games, advance to Tuesday’s 7:30 p.m. sectional semifinal against the winner of Friday’s Lincoln-Way Central Regional final between Marist and Sandburg. Marian’s program had won 15 straight regionals before missing out on that achievement last season. One of the keys was Marian’s big advantage in rebounds. The Spartans outrebounded the Warriors (24-6) by a 26-11 margin in the first half and 42-

The Spartans also did a nice job of limiting West’s four-year standouts, Emily Atsinger and Courtney O’Donnell, who were held to one basket, which came in the final minute. West used a 10-0 run to take a 13-10

lead after one quarter and fell behind for good at 35-32 when Carmen Jackson hit a 3-pointer with a second left in the third quarter. The Warriors combined to make only two baskets and score nine points during the second and fourth

quarters. Meanwhile, Marian collected 26 points in those two quarters. “We shoot a lot of perimeter shots, and if they’re not falling, it can make things difficult,” White said. “Marian did a great job of keeping us out of the lane, to where they didn’t have to help off the shooters, and then they had big girls inside when we were able to get into the paint that made things difficult. We’re usually OK when teams get into the 50s against us, but tonight just wasn’t one of those cases. To their credit, they did a great job defensively. “You’re at the point of the year where you have one bad shooting game and you’re done. But I told the girls that we’re not going to let one game dictate how our season went since we had a great season. We told them that we’d take 24-6 every single year. If I can sign up for that for the next 20 years, then sign me up. So there’s no disappointment on our end about the season. We had a chance to bring home a trophy tonight and just fell a little short.” Leading the way for the Warriors was Taylor Gugliuzza, who scored 14 points, while Tara Hastings chipped in 11 points. O’Donnell hit a 3-pointer with 39 seconds left to give her seven points to go along with her eight rebounds, while Stephanie Athanasoulis had three points and five rebounds and Atsinger scored two points.

Creal also played tough for East. Oswego East was led by Ty Battle’s 20 points. Even though the Wolves had the leading scorer, Plainfield East played a more balanced game, which is a big reason the Bengals picked up their first regional title. “We stayed patient,” Waznonis said. “We’re a team where you can’t just stop one person. We have five people on the floor that can score. So when you try and shut one person down, someone else is going to step up right away.” It was more than just the five girls on the court who helped the Bengals. “I attribute this to the whole team, the fans who came out and everyone on the bench hyping us up,” Jenkins said. “We’re really close, so we stay together. Even when mistakes happen, we decide to brush it off and focus on the next play. We try not to get frustrated, which is what I think solidified our success.” Another factor might have contributed to the Bengals’ success is their fo-

cus. Going into the season, the goal was a conference and regional title. When the conference title was out of reach, the team set all of its focus on the postseason and putting itself in the best position to do well. After Plainfield East fell to Southwest Prairie Conference champion Oswego East twice during the season, the upset might have appeared dubious. The Bengals never took their eyes off the prize, however. “Everyone else doubted us, but we never doubted ourselves,” Smoldt said. “We knew we had it. We have been practicing for this all season. It starts with practice with our teammates, even with those that don’t play but get us ready and help us any way that they can.” Plainfield East will face Bolingbrook in the Aurora East Sectional semifinal at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. For now, the Bengals get to celebrate the program first.

Bolingbrook, West, Central, Minooka top 4 seeds By DICK GOSS

dgoss@shawmedia.com Bolingbrook, Joliet West, Joliet Central, Minooka. That’s the order for the top four seeds in the Class 4A Lincoln-Way East Sectional in boys basketball. The IHSA released the Class 4A and 3A seeds Thursday afternoon, and in the Lincoln-Way East Sectional, there were no major surprises, especially in the top four. The significance of earning a topfour slot is that one and only one of the first through fourth seeds will be in each regional. Likewise, one and only one of the five through eighth seeds will be in each regional. West Aurora is fifth, followed by Lincoln-Way East, Romeoville and Sandburg. Lemont is No. 9, Oswego East 10 and Lockport 11. Other are schools in the 22-team field are 15 Lincoln-Way Central, 17 Lincoln-Way West, 19 Plainfield Central, 20 Plainfield East, 21 Plainfield North and 22 Plainfield South. The regional hosts are Joliet Central, Sandburg and Plainfield Central at Plainfield North. The norm is for the 1 and 8 seeds, 2 and 7, 3 and 6 and 4 and 5 to be paired in regionals. If that holds, that would set up these potential regional finals: Bolingbrook vs.

Shaw media file photo

Bolingbrook’s Nana Akenten shoots a 3-pointer during the Raiders’ 84-74 victory last month over Joliet West. The unbeaten Raiders, who are No. 1 in the state, and the Tigers are the top two seeds in the Class 4A Lincoln-Way East Sectional. Sandburg at Sandburg, Joliet West vs. Romeoville at Plainfield Central or Plainfield North, Joliet Central vs. Lincoln-Way East at Joliet Central and Minooka vs. West Aurora at Plainfield Central or Plainfield North. In the sectional semifinals, should

the top four seeds get there, Minooka would challenge Bolingbrook and Joliet Central would take on Joliet West. The two Joliet Township schools will tangle at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Central in their only regular-season meeting. Bolingbrook (23-0) has beaten Joliet

West, 84-74, and Joliet Central, 60-55. Minooka (20-7) has lost twice to West (21-3) and has won two of three games against Central (21-3). Whoever survives the sectional will travel to the DeKalb Supersectional to take on the Hinsdale Central Sectional winner. The top four seeds at Hinsdale are Wheaton Warrenville South, Geneva, Benet and Naperville North. Meanwhile, in Class 3A, area teams are assigned to the Plano Sectional, which is divided into Sub-Sectional A and Sub-Sectional B, both of which have 10 teams. In Sub-Sectional A, Hillcrest is the No. 1 seed, followed by Rich South, Providence and Joliet Catholic Academy. With Rich South and JCA regional hosts in that sub-sectional, Providence logically could play at Rich South and face the Stars in that regional final, while Hillcrest would be in the JCA Regional and be the opposition for the Hilltoppers in that regional final. In Sub-Sectional B, Plano is No. 1, followed by Sandwich, Streator and Herscher. Morris is 5 and Coal City 9. Kankakee and Coal City are regional hosts. The Plano Sectional winner will face the St. Rita Sectional winner in the Joliet Central Supersectional. The top four seeds at St. Rita are Morgan Park, Bogan, Hyde Park and Brooks.

PLAINFIELD – Twenty-eight seconds into the game, Ashley Smoldt hit a 3 to give the Plainfield East girls basketball team a 3-0 lead. With about a minute left in the game, the pressure was on Smoldt again. The senior guard needed to sink both free throws, and she did without breaking a sweat. The Bengals had clawed their way to an upset, beating top-seeded Oswego East, 51-48, on Thursday to claim the Class 4A Plainfield East Regional title. This marks the first time in school history that the girls program won a regional title, and it ties the school record at 24-7. “Ashley Smoldt is our clutch freethrow shooter,” Bengals coach Tony Waznonis said. “If there’s anyone I want on the line, that’s who I want.” “It was really important to hit the

shots, but that would not have been able to happen without my teammates giving me great passes in order for me to solidify the win and knock the free throws down,” Smoldt said. Even though Smoldt earned the clutch player of the night title, she was not the only reason for the Bengals’ success. Smoldt scored a team-high 13 points and went 4 for 4 from the free-throw line while chipping in four assists. Junior forward Olivia Jenkins had a double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds. She played an aggressive game and added five blocks. With one of the team’s leading scorers, senior Kennedy Collins, on the bench, many Bengals stepped up. Lotanna Onua was the hot hand in the third quarter and totaled 10 points, while Jada Neal and Madelyn Sidman followed closely behind with nine and eight, respectively. Ashley Lewis-Banks (three rebounds) and Maiya

Minooka hires McCombs as new football coach By DICK GOSS

dgoss@shawmedia.com MINOOKA – He must enjoy coaching high school football. Otherwise, why would he be at this business for 48 consecutive years? Minooka has hired a successor to Paul Forsythe, who left the position as head football coach after last season, and it is a Hall of Famer. Shorewood resident Terry McCombs, 69, has not been a head coach since he completed a sterling 15-year run as Bloomington’s head coach in 1992. But he has been in demand as an assistant. He was approved unanimously by the Minooka Community High School District 111 Board of Education at Thursday night’s meeting. “We’re very happy with Terry’s hiring,” Minooka athletic director Bob Tyrell said. “We look to move forward with him. He has had great success over the years and brings a wealth of experience.” McCombs’ teams at Bloomington

posted a 111-43 overall record. His last six teams made the playoffs, highlighted by a state runner-up finish in 1991. From Bloomington, McCombs moved to Downers Grove South, where he was AD and defensive coordinator for 10 years. Then he returned to the Bloomington-Normal area and joined the staff of his old friend, Normal Community head coach Hud Venerable. The Ironmen won a state title during McCombs’ four years there. Meanwhile, his daughter married, settled in Naperville and had kids. “My wife said, ‘That’s it, we’re moving to the suburbs,’ ” McCombs said. “We got a place in Shorewood. “I went back to Downers Grove South, then was at Lemont, where I was very happy. But Hud (Venerable]) got the job at Lincoln-Way Central, and he said he would not accept it if I didn’t come along as his defensive coordinator. So I did.

CUBS SPRING TRAINING

But it is what it is.” Of course, after a century of being the butt of jokes for having not won a World Series since 1908 until last year, the Cubs and their fans might enjoy being a little arrogant. It was 10 years ago that then-new manager Lou Piniella talked of developing a “Cubbie swagger.” Piniella’s teams won division titles in 2007 and 2008, but instead of swagger, they staggered in the playoffs, getting swept in back-to-back division series. The Cubs got it done last season under manager Joe Maddon, who said he doesn’t mind a little swagger. “Of course,” Maddon said. “It’s all about that. Just go back in history. I’ve often talked about the Dodgers when I came up in the minor leagues. Their uniforms were whiter than everybody else’s. They thought they were better

than everybody else, and then they went out and won all the time. And I kind of liked it. I hated it, but I liked it at the same time. The Yankees have developed that kind of a culture. “Teams that win, whether you even want to talk about the Patriots in football, it’s part of it. It’s not that you feel as though you’re just going to show up and throw your gloves out there and you’re going to win. That’s not the point. You gain this confidence based on winning. “There is something to be said for knowing how to win. What does that mean? It’s such a nebulous concept. I think that means that knowing how to win is that when you show up every day, back to the process, going through the process properly, if we do these things well and we keep our wits about us, keep our heads about us, here comes

WHITE SOX SPRING TRAINING NOTES

Rodon will throw for the first time this week on Friday By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN dvanschouwen@suntimes.com

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Pitching coach Don Cooper said Carlos Rodon will throw a baseball Friday, something the 24-year-old left-hander hasn’t been seen doing like the rest of the pitchers through the first three days of spring training. Rodon has stood on the sidelines while the other pitchers played catch and has refrained from making even short throws during pitchers fielding practice – scooping the ball to first with his glove. That has sparked some concern from observers about his health, but Rodon and Cooper said he is easing his way into a long camp. “He’s throwing tomorrow [Friday],’’ Cooper said Thursday. “Tomorrow his program starts, like I said. He’s fine. He’s good. He’s good. He’s good. We are not going to ask some-

body to do something if they are not.’’ The No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 draft, Rodon is 18-16 with a 3.90 ERA over his two seasons. He threw 165 innings last season, missing 24 days in July with a sprained left wrist. “Ease him into it a little bit,’’ Cooper said. “With the World Classic [this spring], we’ve got a whole lot of time and we are going to take our time with him.’’ “It’s a long spring,’’ manager Rick Renteria said. “He’s a guy we’re going to try to control and make sure we measure his workload so that we have him as much as we can during the season.’’

Broadcast news

CSN and CSN+ will televise 106 games starting with Opening Day April 3. WGN-TV will air 55 games, including two of the four Sox-Cubs games. ESPN (as well as CSN) will also carry a Cubs-Sox tilt on July 26.

Ken Harrelson, beginning his 33rd season in the Sox TV booth, will call play-by-play for all but three road games (June 16-18 in Toronto), Opening Day and the crosstown games at Guaranteed Rate Field. Steve Stone begins his eighth season as analyst, and Jason Benetti his second for 78 of 81 home games. WLS-AM 890, in its second year as the Sox flagship radio station, will broadcast all 162 games on-air duo Ed Farmer and Darrin Jackson.

Don’t call me Carlos

Infielder Carlos Sanchez will heretofore be called Yolmer Sanchez. “My family called me Yolmer, so I want to switch to that this year,’’ Sanchez said. Yolmer Sanchez is going to be my new name.’’ Sanchez said his full name is Yolmer Carlos Javier Sanchez Yanez. He went by Carlos or Carlito, has father’s

name, or Carlito growing up. Or, as former manager Robin Ventura called him, “Sanchy.” The bottom line? “I’m the same guy,’’ Sanchez said. “I’m going to work hard.’’

This and that

Carson Fulmer, the No. 8 overall draft pick in 2015, on his struggles last season: “I needed to learn more about myself and my ability. I got kicked around a little bit and I think that’s beneficial for me. It definitely helped me prepare myself for this year and really get ready to have a good year. It’s a new year.’’ ... Because of excellent weather in Chicago, groundskeeper Roger Bossard said sprinklers will be on at Sox Park for the first time in his 50 years caring for the home field. Meanwhile, rain is expected in Arizona Saturday and Sunday.

MESA, Ariz. – Anthony Rizzo is a ground-floor guy with the Cubs’ rebuilding program, so he knows of humble beginnings. Now Rizzo, the Cubs and their fans have a suite in the penthouse after the rebuilding project culminated with a World Series championship. The Cubs have been one of the most beloved franchises in pro sports, much of it stemming from their past reputation as “lovable losers” and a patient and loyal fan base. Now that they’ve won, will success spoil the Cubs? Will they come to be seen as “arrogant,” much as the Boston Red Sox – who broke an 86-year championship drought in 2004 – did after winning three recent titles? “I had an older man in the gym tell me – he was a big Red Sox and Patriots fan – he goes, ‘Yeah, congrats, you guys won one, but you haven’t done anything until the whole country hates you,’ ” Rizzo said Thursday before working out. “In a way, it’s true, because growing up a die-hard Dolphin fan, I hated (Patriots quarterback) Tom Brady because he was the best. Now, I’m almost a Patriots fan because he’s so good. “This team has a lot of good personalities where it’s going to be tough (to hate the Cubs), but that’s the way it goes. If we just respect the game, it’ll make it hard for people to not like us.

the latter part of the game. We should be able to turn it in our favor somehow as opposed to the game going the other direction. “So yes, swagger is a part of that, whatever you want to call it. It’s the residue of winning, there’s no question. But then you have to be able to maintain that.” But would Maddon want the Cubs to be “hated,” like the Yankees of old? “I don’t know if the word is ‘hated,’ ” he said. “It’s somewhat natural that if a team is very successful … it works both ways. You’re going to get the group that absolutely jumps on the bandwagon, too. I think there’s the part of the world that wants to be attached to a winner. “By the same token, there’s that group that’s always looking for somebody to fail. Regardless of what camp somebody may be in, for me, it’s about us taking care of what we want to do, how we want to do it daily and creating the culture that we want. And let people decide where they want to be with that. “But I’ve talked about the genuine nature of our guys, the authentic nature of our players and the work ethic, etc. I know, we know, what we’re all about. That’s really what matters, I think.” Rizzo gave an “Amen” to that. “We’re a team that’s likable,” he said. “Joe says ‘authenticity.’ That’s what we’ve got here.”

Butler lifts Bulls to victory By JAY COHEN

The Associated Press CHICAGO – Jimmy Butler made two free throws with 0.9 seconds left to lift the Bulls to a 104-103 victory over the Boston Celtics on Thursday night. Butler’s clutch foul shots capped a memorable duel with fellow AllStar Isaiah Thomas in the NBA’s final game before the break. Butler and Thomas each had 29 points and seven assists. Butler was touched on the right elbow by Marcus Smart on a turnaround

“We were together two years, then they went a different way at Lincoln-Way Central, which was fine. The last two years, I’ve been at ReedCuster, helping out an old friend, Mark Wolf.” His options for the 2017 season were returning to Downers South as linebackers coach or becoming a head coach again, specifically, at Minooka. “Where I live in Shorewood, I’m in the Minooka school district,” he said. “Number one with me is always the school district where I live. Two, it’s a good community and good school academically. Three, they have had success in all sports. They have had some success in football, but maybe I can help them have a little more.” The Indians made the playoffs in 2015 under Forsythe and missed by a game last season, finishing 4-5. “I’ve met some of the Minooka players,” McCombs said. “They’re impressive.” McCombs is a defensive guru. Offensively, his Bloomington teams ran an inside veer or outside veer, depending on the talent he had.

jumper at the final horn, drawing a foul. Butler nodded his head up and down as an incredulous Smart danced up the court in disbelief. Butler calmly drained each free throw, and Al Horford air-balled a baseline jumper on the Celtics’ last shot, giving the Bulls (28-29) consecutive wins against Eastern Conference powers Toronto and Boston (37-20). Bobby Portis had a season-high 19 points for the Bulls, who went 22 for 22 at the line. Robin Lopez had 15 points and eight rebounds, and Taj Gibson finished with 12 points and nine boards. “But there was a time we threw the ball a lot,” he said. “That’s when we had Billy Dicken, who went to Purdue (and was a first-team All-Big Ten quarterback). He’s the offensive coordinator at Illinois State University. I’m still in contact with him and Brock Spack, the head coach at ISU. We don’t have the same athletes in high school that they have at ISU, of course, but I still work with them on concepts. “I used to run a triple option at Bloomington, but offenses have changed. These days, it’s run-pass options. But we still will be defense-oriented, aggressive football team.” McCombs is anticipating a busy summer. “I told Bob (Tyrell) that we will use all 25 summer days that we are allowed,” he said. “We will be game ready when we get to fall practice.” Not as much contact in practice is allowed these days, but that’s no concern to McCombs. “I never liked contact in practice, anyway,” he said. “We teach the proper tackling technique. I don’t want my best player standing on the sideline.” How long will McCombs stay at it? “I’ll coach as long as God lets me,” he said. “I love coaching, being around the kids.”

Senior heading to FCCLA culinary state finals BOLINGBROOK – Bolingbrook High School senior Thomas Tueres qualified for the Illinois Family, Career and Community Leaders of America culinary state competition thanks to an outstanding performance at FCCLA regionals Feb. 10. Competing for the first time in any FCCLA event, Tueres learned three international menus from India, Argentina and Italy. At the competition, he was paired with two students from other schools in the region, and the team had to prepare and plate one of the menus. His menu consisted of an Argentinian chicken empanada with mango salsa, grilled flank steak with chimichurri, marinated eggplant, garlic roasted fingerling potatoes and tres leches with macerated berry salad.

Students were judged on their time management and planning, knife skills, overall culinary skills, and ability to work as a team and communicate with others in the kitchen, as well as their safety and sanitation. Once their food was plated, it was judged on presentation and taste. The students faced judges/chefs in the culinary and hospitality industry from throughout the state and various culinary colleges and universities. Tueres advances to the state competition on March 31 at Kendall College in Chicago. The top six finishers will represent Illinois at FCCLA culinary nationals. While he did not qualify for state, BHS senior Tariq Mann also performed well at regionals.

ASK THE DOCTORS Robert Ashley milligrams of CoQ10 daily versus those who took 400 international units (IU) of vitamin E daily. However, there were only 18 people in the group that took CoQ10, so it’s difficult to make an overarching conclusion about CoQ10’s benefits. Other small studies have not shown any benefit from supplementation. A combined analysis of six studies published in 2015 in Mayo Clinical Proceedings found a slight decrease in pain among statin users who took CoQ10, but the decrease was not clinically significant. The authors concluded that a larger study was needed. Based on these studies, and the lack of a large study to evaluate CoQ10, it would be difficult to recommend CoQ10 to prevent muscle pain. However, judging by some of my patients’ experiences and by your wife, some statin users have found significant pain relief with CoQ10. My general thought on the matter is, if you have muscle symptoms with a statin, you should probably change the type of statin you’re getting. Some types, such as rosuvastatin and pravastatin, don’t concentrate in the muscles as much as others, causing fewer muscle problems. Switching to them may have benefit. Taking 100 milligrams of CoQ10 may also have benefit, but again, a large trial will be necessary to further evaluate this.

Dear Doctor: Many doctors in my area recommend CoQ10 in conjunction with statin drugs to reduce or eliminate muscle pain. It has worked for my wife, and we have heard lots of anecdotal evidence from friends who use it. What’s the evidence behind the use of CoQ10 with statins? Dear Reader: First, let’s take a look at statins. These drugs have been repeatedly shown to lower cholesterol levels – leading to decreased rates of atherosclerosis, heart attacks and strokes – but they can have side effects. The most common side effect I’ve seen among my patients is muscle pain, which is the reason most people stop these very beneficial drugs. Now let’s look at CoQ10. This coenzyme is needed for energy production within muscle cells. Some studies have shown that statins decrease the concentration of CoQ10 in both muscle tissue and in the bloodstream. The hypothesis is that, if you decrease the CoQ10 levels, you reduce the production of energy in muscle cells and they won’t function as well, leading to muscle aches, weakness or inflammation. In extremely severe cases – I’ve seen this in very few of my patients – statins can lead to the death of muscle cells, and a decrease in muscular CoQ10 may be one of the reasons. Massive cell death also can lead to acute kidney failure, but fortunately, in most cases, after stopping the statin and getting intravenous fluids, the patient’s symptoms will quickly improve. As for whether taking CoQ10 can prevent the side effects of statins, the studies of CoQ10 supplementation with statins are small and not conclusive. A 2007 study in the American Journal of Cardiology showed a 40 percent decrease in pain among statin users who took 100

People have had scratches on their legs and items of clothing ruined because a dog jumped on them. The problem is some dog owners identify so strongly with their pet they lose the ability to distinguish between it and themselves – and take anything they perceive as a rejection personally. While a guest may be technically on a dog’s turf, that doesn’t mean the guest should be fair game. Considerate hosts control their dog until it has calmed down enough to be properly introduced. Dear Abby: I have a 19-year-old granddaughter who has three tattoos and now a ring in her nose. Any suggestions as to what I might say to her to stop the destruction? – Granddad in New

Dear Abby: DEAR ABBY I have been a vegetarian for 12 Jeanne years. My husPhillips band has been one on and off for five years. I thought our children, 7 and 3, had never had meat in their lives. I recently found out my father-in-law has been feeding them chicken nuggets from fast food. I am very upset about it. It has been six months and I haven’t talked to him since and no longer let my kids go over there without my husband. He texted me an apology that seemed very sarcastic and made me even angrier. Everyone says I need to get over it, but no one has confronted him about it. This has put a strain on my relationship with my husband. Can you please advise me on what to do next? – Furious in the South Dear Furious: Text messages are, by definition, terse. Accept the apology you were given and move forward. That said, however, continue to insist your children be under their father’s supervision when they visit their grandfather because his judgment is questionable, and he already has shown when they are with him, your wishes will not be enforced. Dear Abby: I have had a few negative encounters with dog owners who invited me to their home and became upset because I pushed their pet away when it tried to jump/lick/nudge me (although I do it gently). While I understand I am entering the dog’s territory, I think it’s inconsiderate when pet owners not only refuse to restrain their pets, but also imply I’m somehow a lesser human being because I don’t want my personal space infringed upon by an aggressive animal. I would never allow my children to behave similarly around guests. If I knew people were uncomfortable with my children climbing on them, as a polite host, I would ask my children to leave that person alone. To me it seems this is a mutual respect issue. Am I wrong? – Dog

FRIDAY HOROSCOPE By EUGENIA LAST

Newspaper Enterprise Association TODAY – Don’t let your emotions prevent you from seeing the facts or doing what needs to be done if you want to keep a steady pace toward your goals. Use charm and intelligence to win support and favors. Personal accolades are within reach. Offer kindness, not cash, if you want to make a difference. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Holding discussions and making suggestions will help matters, but you must add physical force if you want to excel. It’s up to you to do the grunt work if you want to reap the rewards. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – If you participate in a group effort, you will be praised for your

creative suggestions. Don’t feel pressured to contribute money if you have offered your time or services. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Carefully examine emotional situations before you reveal how you feel. It’s important to find out where you stand and to adjust your presentation accordingly. Show diplomacy. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Your intuition won’t let you down. Trust in yourself and your abilities, not in what someone else is doing or saying. Take the path that you feel most comfortable pursuing. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – You’ve got all the right moves to reach your personal and professional goals. You will outmaneuver anyone who gets in your way. Romance will improve your life. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Excess will cause

problems for you. Whether you or someone else is being indulgent, you must protect against injury, accidents and damage to your reputation. Focus on achievement and peace. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Sign up for physical activities that are challenging and invigorating. Self-improvement is favored and will bring good results if you stick to your regimen. Romance is featured. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Refuse to get involved in someone else’s melodrama. Stay focused on what matters to you and make changes that will improve your domestic environment. Choose an unusual lifestyle. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – A problem with residential services will disrupt your routine. Avoid over-indulgence and don’t make unreasonable

promises. Choose love and peace over discord and chaos. Romance will improve your life. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – You’ll be sent mixed signals when dealing with friends and loved ones. Don’t hesitate to ask for a confirmation before you agree to someone’s iffy plans. If you don’t participate, you can’t complain. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – You must use your intellect, not your emotions, when choosing friends or allies. Know the person you are dealing with before you share secrets. Physical achievements are favored. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Let others make their own mistakes. Don’t feel obliged to take part in anything that you find impulsive or irresponsible. Protect your assets, possessions and your heart from anyone taking liberties.

SATURDAY HOROSCOPE By EUGENIA LAST

Newspaper Enterprise Association TODAY – Put more time and effort into development. Testing and challenging your ideas and projects will help you dismiss any chance of failure. Become a part of what you want to see happen, not just someone who oversees the process. Physical action will bring about positive change and financial rewards. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Confusion will set in while traveling or discussing important matters if you let your emotions intervene. Recognize the facts and be honest with your assessments. Personal growth should be your goal. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Learn from your ex-

perience. Talk to people who can offer facts that will help you make better choices. Collaborate with someone, but don’t feel obliged to take part in a joint financial venture. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Put your ideas on display, and collaborate with people you feel have something to offer. Compromise and brainstorming will be what lead you to victory. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – An unusual partnership will interest you. Consider how well each complements the other, as well as the likelihood of you both achieving your goals. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Being a part of something big will give you a sense of belonging and the ability to move forward in life without reservations. Personal improvements are favored.

in your community that you have never visited before. The people you encounter will spark your imagination and inspire you to do something unique and life-altering.

Look inward and make simple but effective changes that will add to your popularity. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Domestic improvements, family trips or get-togethers and romantic interactions should be your priorities. If you play the instigator, the incentives you put in

place will get others to pitch in and help. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Make your home your castle. Alter your living space to suit your needs and help you develop the projects you want to pursue. Someone unique and creative will inspire you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Share little with people trying to pry into your life.

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

SOUTHWEST AUTO SALVAGE WE BUY JUNK CARS LOCKPORT, IL

Henry Cotton, who won the British Open three times, said, “Golfers have analyzed the game in order to find ‘the secret.’ There is no secret.” In contrast, bridge players rely on their analysis of a deal to give them “the secret” for the right bid or play. At the 2016 Yeh Online World Bridge Cup, this deal featured the best bid, in my analysis. Look at the North hand. In second seat, partner opens one club, and righty overcalls four spades. What would you do? Once you have decided, read on. Whether you pass or make a value-showing double, partner rebids five clubs. What would you do then? The deal occurred in the match between Lavazza (who played in Turin, Italy) and Bridge Base Online (who competed in Seattle). When BBO was North-South, North doubled four spades. Then, when South removed to five clubs, North passed. Sitting North-South for Lavazza were Sylvie Willard from France and Giorgio Duboin from Italy. Willard passed over four spades. But when partner rebid five clubs, Willard anticipated South’s having a spade void and long, strong clubs. If so, they rated to have only one heart loser. Backing her analysis of the deal, Willard raised to six clubs -- a hole in one! West led the spade ace. Duboin ruffed and gave up a heart. East won and shifted to a trump, but declarer won with his seven and crossruffed hearts and clubs to take two diamonds, seven clubs and three heart ruffs on the board. Minus 420 and plus 920 gave Lavazza 11 international match points en route to the title.
