Batavia couple honored, reveal riverwalk campaign By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – Britta and Steve McKenna continue to find ways to help Batavia. While they were honored Saturday as the Batavia Chamber of Commerce’s 2012 Batavia Citizens of the Year, Britta McKenna announced a campaign to raise funds for the renovation of the boardwalk at the Batavia Riverwalk. “It is only through our collaborative hands that we can shape Batavia’s future,” Britta McKenna, former executive director of the Batavia MainStreet program, said in announcing the “Purchase a Plank” campaign and accepting the award. The McKennas have been giving back to Batavia since moving to the city in 1991. One of the first activities Britta McKenna became involved in was the Batavia Riverwalk Committee, which oversaw the construction of the riverwalk. She became a volunteer board member of the committee and served as its marketing director. A couple of years later, Steve McKenna

joined the riverwalk committee as a board member and treasurer. In 2000, the pair also served as founding board members of the Friends of the Riverwalk. Britta McKenna also spearheaded an effort in 2008 to add a permanent band shell to the Peg Bond Center on the riverwalk. “I get my energy from the good people I surround myself with,” Britta McKenna said. Steve McKenna served as one of the founders of Holy Cross Cub Scout Pack 121 in 1992. More recently, he helped lead 2011’s Bulldogs Unleashed fundraising project. Colorfully painted bulldog

statues were on display in downtown Batavia as part of a fundraiser for the Batavia Public Library Foundation, the Batavia Parks Foundation and the Batavia Foundation for Educational Excellence. “We came to Batavia 21 years ago not to win awards but participate in the community,” Steve McKenna said. “For me, it’s been easy to be involved in this community.” For the couple, giving back to Batavia is a team effort. “This is a team,” Batavia Mayor Jeff Schielke said. “They are almost interchangeable.” He also took note of the couple’s parenting skills in

raising their two sons, Kyle and Owen. “If we can credit them for anything, they have done an extraordinary job in parenting,” Schielke said. Batavia Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Roger Breisch also recognized the couple’s contributions. “Whenever Britta plans something, it always includes Steve,” he said. “These are truly two extraordinary individuals. It was hard to keep up with Britta’s ideas. It was sometimes intimidating.” The Batavia Citizen of the Year award is selected by a committee of previous recipients and is based on nominations from the community.

SCORE Fox Valley mentors local businesses, nonprofits to expand their reach On the Web

By NICOLE WESKERNA nweskerna@shawmedia.com When he launched his decorative fountain business more than two years ago, Brian Ray said it would have been easy to get overwhelmed with everything from licensing to getting products to the market. “Just about everything is an obstacle,” he said. Because starting a business is complex, Ray tapped the expertise of an experienced smallbusiness mentor through a nonprofit organization called SCORE Fox Valley. It’s a national organization comprised mainly of retired CEOs and managers that offers free business advice to startups or grow established companies. Ray said his business, Geneva-based Innovative Fountains Inc., has benefited from SCORE Fox Valley, and he maintains a relationship with his mentor today. “I relied heavily on SCORE,” he said. “I believe SCORE helped me get where I am today.” Ray said he developed cordless technology so decorative fountains didn’t have to be tethered to an outlet. But when he finished mapping out his business plan, he knew he had to take a different route.

Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley volunteer Sue Styer of Geneva (left) helps Gustavo Garcia on his computer at the St. Charles Public Library. SCORE mentors have helped the nonprofit by creating a report that shows how it could grow, sustain that growth and better utilize its resources. “My costs were five times more than what I thought they were going to be,” he said. “That was a game changer.” SCORE offers services to an array of businesses, including nonprofit organizations. Peg Coker wanted Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley – a nonprofit that teaches English as a Second Language – to position itself for greater growth, but

she wasn’t sure where to start. Coker, executive director of the St. Charles-based nonprofit, said she reached out to SCORE because she wanted a view from someone who wasn’t part of day-to-day operations. Krish Raju of Geneva, who has been a SCORE mentor for two years, worked with the organization to expand its reach.

City Council seeks proposals for Wilson Street Bridge sculptures By ERIC SCHELKOPF BATAVIA – The city is asking artists to submit their ideas for the last two sculptures on the Wilson Street Bridge. The city will offer a $30,000 commission for each sculpture. The themes for the next two sculptures are “Science and Art.” Applications may be downloaded at www.cityofbatavia. net.

“We took some deep dives into some key areas and came back and said, this is what this looks like from the outside looking in,” he said. “The director took [a report] to the

board, and some [board members] were surprised.” Raju said the report included a full picture of how the organization could grow, sustain that growth and better utilize its resources. “They looked at the processes we’re currently using to tutor students and encourage both [students and tutors] to continue with the program longer and have greater success,” Coker said. She said the organization’s board still is reviewing suggestions from SCORE mentors, and Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley has made small adjustments after mentors stepped in. She said with SCORE’s help, the organization is on the path toward expanding its staff and serving more clients.

will name the winning artists in September. A second sculpture for the bridge is set to be installed this summer. Batavia City Administrator Bill McGrath said work on the “History” sculpture is moving along, and the project should be completed by June 1. The sculpture, called “A Look Back,” will be a nod to Batavia’s history. “A Look Back” will be constructed of bronze, limestone and glass and will stand 7½

feet tall. Windmills will be an integral part of the sculpture. Batavia once was known as the windmill capital of the world for being home to six windmill factories. The City Council had set aside $30,000 for the bridge’s first sculpture, “Nature Sounds of Harmony,” which was dedicated in April 2009. The sculpture was installed after the reconstruction of the bridge in 2007-08.

Mentor: Some businesses don’t care for SCORE’s advice because it’s blunt • score

Continued from page 4 “It was a tremendous experience,” she said. “They have such a depth of knowledge and are able to look from the outside in.” Another nonprofit that benefited from SCORE’s advice is the Association for Individual Development. Mayer Smith, business services representative for the organization, said SCORE helped the organization map out a profitable business plan to put people with developmental disabilities to work. Smith said the organization’s reach stretches from Elgin to Yorkville, and about one-third of its clients

come from the Tri-Cities area. He said the 2008-09 economy made it difficult for people with developmental disabilities to find jobs, so he reached out to SCORE to figure out a business model to create sustainable jobs. Mentors helped him develop a business plan in sorting recyclables, which today includes electronics recycling. “It’s grown three-fold since it started two years ago,” Smith said. Raju said as a mentor, it’s important to be straightforward so business owners know exactly what they can expect as they work toward their goals. He said that sometimes results in blunt advice. “We are there to help them, but we have to be honest when

an idea won’t generate any income,” he said. “Some don’t like the input we provide because it’s very honest and open.” Ray said that’s one thing he

appreciates about SCORE mentors – they provide advice, and it’s up to the business owner to decide whether to follow through. His mentor’s advice

helped him save a lot of hassle and money. “They’re really big on walking you through a business plan,” he said.

crime. Police were dispatched to the parking lot at 1:45 a.m. after one of the victims called 911 from a cellphone. Patton, Miner and Bolt reportedly drove away once the victim

said police were on their way. The victims suffered cuts and bruises, McCurtain said, describing the injuries as minor. Miner and Bolt were arrested Friday, and Patton was arrested Saturday, police said. Each of them was charged with one count of mob action, a Class 4 felony; two counts of aggravated battery, a Class 3 felony; and two counts of hate crime, a Class 4 felony. Miner and Bolt also were charged with four counts of battery, and Patton was charged with six counts of battery, a Class A misdemeanor. Bond for each of them was set at $30,000. Bolt and Patton have been released on $3,000 bail, police said, but Miner remained in custody at the Kane County Correctional Facility as of Monday. Their next court date is set for 9 a.m. Feb. 15 in Room 217 of the Kane County Judicial Center. It is possible a fourth person will be charged after further review by the state’s attorney’s office, McCurtain said.

ST. CHARLES – Three people have been charged with multiple felonies in connection with a physical altercation that police consider a hate crime, St. Charles police said Monday. Susan V. Patton, 31, of the 6N200 block of Woodland Road, Campton Hills, reportedly threw a drink in the face of a 26-year-old woman waiting outside for a cab after Time Out Sports Pub, 2051 Lincoln Highway, had closed Jan. 6. Police spokesman Paul McCurtain said the two women had talked inside the restaurant. To avoid further confrontation, the 26-year-old and her two male companions walked away and decided to walk home instead of waiting for a taxi. A gray Mazda, however, reportedly pulled up next to the trio and stopped. Patton exited the car and again confronted the other woman, whose friends stepped in front of her as protection, police said.

Patton hit the men and was joined by two others in the vehicle: Christopher M. Miner, 30, of the 100 block of North 15th Street, St. Charles, and Stephan C. Bolt, 31, of the 4N800 block of East Mary Lane, Campton Hills, police said. P a t t o n , Miner and Bolt punched and kicked the two men while taunting them for being gay, McCurtain said, which is why authorities labeled the incident as a hate

By ASHLEY RHODEBECK arhodebeck@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Tavern Association has not won over some aldermen in its efforts to curb alcohol-related issues in downtown. Fourth Ward Aldermen Jo Krieger and Jim Martin, who consistently vote against liquor licenses, expressed doubts about the group’s effectiveness during an update Monday by association spokesman Steve Baginski and Police Chief Jim Lamkin. “I don’t think the association or owners downtown have corrected the over-serving,” Martin said. “You’ve got a long way to go.” Downtown bar owners joined forces in fall to reduce problems such as over-serving and fights after the City Council threatened to change closing time from 2 to 1 a.m. Mayor Don DeWitte proposed the reduction in hours after an

August weekend that required police response to several downtown fights involving intoxicated people. Changes have included setting last call at 1:20 a.m., posting signs warning patrons against fighting, banning troublemakers and communicating regularly with the police department, Baginski told the Government Services Committee. While police still are called to the bars, Lamkin said, many calls are initiated by the establishments when they need help handling a customer. “Overall, there’s a lot of improvement,” Lamkin said. “There’s always room for more improvement.” Second Ward Alderman Cliff Carrignan agreed the association has made “good strides” but said statistics are key in measuring improvement. “This summer’s going to be a pretty telltale sign,” he said. Fifth Ward Alderman Mau-

reen Lewis asked Baginski why the 2 a.m. closing is important to the bars. “It’s a very busy hour,” said Baginski, noting younger customers generally don’t begin the night until 10:30 or 11 p.m. Third Ward Alderman Ray Rogina acknowledged that assigning blame for certain incidents can be difficult because they might happen outside the realm of an establishment. But, the mayoral candidate noted, “When no one’s culpable, everyone’s culpable.” Rogina suggested making the 2 a.m. closing a privilege subject to annual review by the City Council and said he wants an ordinance outlining punishments for specific offenses. “I think the liquor commissioner has too much latitude,” he said. The committee is expected to discuss both issues at its meeting next month. Aldermen also requested to have data that night.

GENEVA – After hearing a few more pleas to spare Coultrap, the Geneva School District 304 board Monday voted unanimously to demolish the 90-year-old former elementary school and seek bids. Officials said if residents came up with a plan to save the building in the next three months, they would listen. School officials had struggled with the fate of Coultrap since summer because the building would cost more to repair than tear down. It was closed as an attendance center in 2009 but is used for board meetings. Renovation and repair estimates were $2.3 million to $4.3 million as opposed to razing the building at a cost of $862,000. It costs $69,000 a year to operate the building minimally. A forum presentation two weeks ago indicated that keeping Coultrap for any purpose

– even relocating the central office from Fourth Street   – would be too expensive to justify. Officials said they would not sell the property because the high school is landlocked and the area might be necessary for future expansion, officials said. Geneva History Center Executive Director Terry Emma, who went to Coultrap and whose three daughters also attended, said the original plan was to move the district’s central office to Coultrap, but the situation changed and it is not financially feasible. “You said things change,” Emma said. “Things can change back again … Please give us more time. I’m asking you.” But board President Mark Grosso said a delay will not change anything. “I, for one, when I weigh the negatives and positives of this facility, there were more negatives than positives,” Grosso said.

Helping Families is the Best Reward

At Geneva Nursing & Rehabilitation, a 107-bed facility opened last year, Dr. Thakkar and his team provide short-term rehabilitation and compassionate long-term care. “In addition to providing excellent care, our staff is very proactive, and tries to prevent problems before they arise,” he said. “Understanding how medications affect an older patient’s system is crucial. A little medication can go a long way. We regularly discuss our patients’ needs, and how to use medication effectively, while limiting complications,” he said. For rehabilitation, the goal is to restore a patient’s level of function to where it was before they were hospitalized. “We want them to be able to return to independent or assisted living,” he said. Thakkar decided to pursue a medical career after attending a conference for high school students at a local hospital. “The doctors talked about what they do, and I was fascinated,” he said.

For Dr. Jay Thakkar, a family practitioner and the Medical Director for Geneva Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, the reward of treating entire families is a continual reminder of why he became a doctor. “I love working with kids as well as seniors. It is very rewarding when I take care of three generations in one family. The seniors are especially appreciative of the care we provide,” said Thakkar.

OPINIONS ANOTHER VIEW

Cooperation leads to progress in the Senate THE WASHINGTON POST

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell , R-Ky., struck a deal Thursday to reform their chamber’s rules, to the outrage of those hoping that Reid would significantly weaken the filibuster. Actually, Reid and McConnell’s deal is a modest improvement crafted in a cooperative fashion and deserves praise on those grounds, not criticism because Reid did not risk counterproductive partisan war to do more. The agreement, which passed overwhelmingly, streamlines parts of the Senate’s byzantine process. Reid secured restrictions on when the minority can use filibusters – for example, on motions to proceed to consider legislation, where filibusters eat up valuable time. In return, McConnell got assurance that the minority party can offer at least two amendments to legislation that isn’t subject to filibuster at that stage. The deal also does something to redress one of the most galling examples of Washington dysfunction – the chronic inability of the executive branch and the Senate to staff the government through a badly clogged appointment process. After clearing a 60vote hurdle, most presidential

nominations can now go to a vote almost immediately. Post contributor Jonathan Bernstein points out that, together, these reforms don’t weaken the ability of relatively large minorities to block contentious legislation with 60 votes. But the changes do limit the ability of relatively small minorities to kill bills with wide support or to delay uncontroversial nominations. That is progress. The Senate’s leaders deserve praise not only for what they did but also for how they did it. Instead of jamming more ambitious reforms through on a partisan, simple-majority vote, Reid hashed them out with McConnell. In so doing, he offered a rare example of bipartisan accord, dodged the threat of partisan blowback hobbling the Senate and avoided setting a dangerous precedent for minority rights in his chamber. Rules changes typically require 67 votes, an arrangement that Reid’s Democrats will cherish when they find themselves once again in the minority. Yes, the filibuster has been abused in recent years, and we would like to see more reform. Forcing lawmakers who would filibuster legislation to speak out on the Senate floor isn’t a bad idea. But these incremental changes are welcome.

Hutchinson has shot at state By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com

S

T. CHARLES – St. Charles North boys swimming coach Rob Rooney finds there’s “a lot more fire in the belly” of freshman Stephan Hutchinson lately. Lacking an X-ray machine when he delivered the diagnosis, Rooney instead spoke from instinct and experience, two qualities Hutchinson finally feels he has gathered after two months with the North Stars. Another St. Charles swimming legacy, Hutchinson entered the program with a grasp of what it took to compete on varsity from years of watching older sisters Kirsten and Loriel. Now that he’s located a full pulse, his teammates are glad to have him. “He stays up with us in the weight room, in the pool, everywhere,” North senior Nick Kowaleski said. “He’s looking good. He trains hard.” Hutchinson remains in the running for a slot on a state series relay at the St. Charles East Sectional on Feb. 16. Last week, he joined veterans Kowaleski, Spencer Gray and anchor Kyle Gannon on the victorious 400-yard freestyle relay in a home dual against Waubonsie Valley. An individual spot in the 100 freestyle appears assured, but Rooney still has more deliberation ahead before he sets the relays. While Saturday’s Upstate Eight Conference meet at East figures to help influence his decision, Hutchinson also can set himself apart in workouts. That’s where Rooney initially noticed the aforementioned increase in fire and attitude. Hutchinson still recalls “bits and pieces” of his beginnings as a swimmer, when he was 4. Memories of the time he first sensed confidence sprouting this season are

Although he dove in the pool with added urgency, Hutchinson didn’t even win the race he calls the turning point of the season, the 200 freestyle in a Jan. 17 home dual against Metea Valley. “After the first 50 [yards], off my wall, I look over and I see my teammate, Kyle Gannon, who wasn’t having the best meet that day. So I thought I was doing amazing. And I was doing pretty good ... even though Kyle recovered and got ahead,” Hutchinson said. “I touch the wall and see a 1:54, which is not too far off my best taper time, so it felt pretty good. I just kind of carried that momentum through the meet and it’s been going pretty well from there.” Hutchinson was about six seconds slower at the Wau-

bonsie Valley meet – Gannon won with a 1:44.58 – but has enjoyed getting better alongside an experienced senior core that also includes David Chokran. It’s helpful that many of his teammates followed brothers and sisters into the sport, including some whose siblings shared a pool with Hutchinson’s sisters. Now a sophomore at IllinoisChicago, Kirsten Hutchinson anchored North’s 2009 state title-winning 200 medley relay, joining Lauren Reynolds, Angie Chokran and Taylor Gannon. Loriel Hutchinson is a North junior and state qualifier. Although his mother, Anna, gave him lessons as a coach at St. Charles Swim Team, Hutchinson at first didn’t plan on pursuing the sport beyond recreation. Observing Kirsten helped change that. “My sister would come home, usually with a smile on her face, and I just kind of thought, ‘Hey, I’m just going to join it. Beat her,’ ” Hutchinson said. “It took awhile to

start doing that, but now I have.” The Hutchinsons compare times instead of racing headto-head, and their youngest member aspires to keep getting faster over the next few years. Wherever he lands on the state series lineup, the North Stars are happy to have Hutchinson aboard in their bid to improve on last season’s 13th-place state finish. With Chokran, Gannon, Gray, Kowaleski and Austin Stapella among the stalwarts set to graduate soon, Rooney is especially eager to bring Hutchinson a first taste of success. “You can’t be on top all the time or have super-talented teams. Everything goes in cycles,” Rooney said. “And I think it’s going to be good for him to have an understanding of how this all works, to collect the leadership that these guys have put out as well as the work ethic that they’ve got. So I’m looking forward to that.” Hutchinson is, too. A few weeks ago, he started to show it.

QUICK READ Kevin Druley Reynolds’ former home park, Coors Field. “We play Arizona in several steps along the way [in the minors], too, so there’s several players that I have played against now for several years,” Reynolds said. “So all that stuff makes it a little more familiar and eases the tension of the move.” Reynolds took a voluntary trip to New York City the same month he was traded to be part of a preliminary panel discussion regarding the faketo-third, throw-to-first trick pickoff move. Major League Baseball recently changed the rules, and now calls that maneuver a balk. Reynolds said there wasn’t much backlash among players, and the ruling seemed symmetrical since lefties can’t pull the not-so-time-honored faketo-first, throw-to-third move. Now an alternate player representative for Arizona, Reynolds hopes to lend his voice to future parliamentary discussions as his career progresses. “You just kind of ask and be a part of that,” he said. “It’s something I was interested in. I wanted to learn a little bit more about what was going on. Finances of baseball. Possible rule changes and all that stuff. I thought it was a good opportunity for me to get out there and learn a little bit about what’s going on in the game.” Next stop: Scottsdale, and the left-field side of Salt River Fields. Spring training begins next month. • Kevin Druley is a sports writer for the Kane County Chronicle. He can be reached at 630-845-5347 or kdruley@ shawmedia.com.

The Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies share a Scottsdale, Ariz., spring training facility before competing for the National League West title each season. Traded from Colorado to Arizona in November, St. Charles East alumnus Matt Reynolds offered easy insight about being a reliever on the other side of the complex at Salt River Fields. “I’m just moving from right field to left field, essentially,” he said. A few weeks after settling into his new Nashville, Tenn., home with wife Laura, Reynolds, a left-hander, was traded from the only Matt Reynolds organization he has known. He’s eager to embrace what he calls a “very familiar” move, and the adjustment that comes with joining teammates he once tried to get out. Reynolds went 3-1 with a 4.40 ERA in 71 appearances last season, walking 17 and striking out 51 in 571⁄3. innings. His career stats include a 5-3 record, 3.93 ERA, 40 walks and 118 strikeouts over 165 appearances since making his Major League debut in August 2010. Colorado received infielder Dan Wheeler in return for Reynolds in the Nov. 20 deal. Reynolds since has spoken with Arizona general manager Kevin Towers about resuming a “workhorse” role in the bullpen. He certainly didn’t know he was auditioning then, but showed well with five scoreless appearances against the Diamondbacks last season. The Diamondbacks and Rockies meet seven times in the first month of the regular season, beginning with an April 19 to 21 weekend series at

NOTEWORTHY

The

Insider

Room for improvement evident for Geneva Between a 10-plus-minute drought without a field goal to start the game against St. Charles East and an inability to dictate the game’s tempo the way the Vikings prefer, Friday’s game was hardly vintage Vikings basketball. Further hardship came in the form of foul trouble for Vikings senior center Connor Chapman, who fouled out of the game late in regulation, and major turnover struggles. Despite all that, Geneva was in position to win the game, taking the Saints to double overtime. Geneva even had a shortlived three-point lead in the last minute of the first overtime. “I thought our kids did a lot of things well [Friday night], but we’ve got so much room for improvement,” Geneva coach Phil Ralston said. “When you look at that area for improvement that we have, it just shows you how much [room for growth] we have. “If we’re able to play games like this and not really be in synch and be as good as we could be – hopefully we still have enough time to figure it out.” In terms of the Upstate Eight Conference River race, the Vikings (15-5, 6-3 UEC River) could still share for the conference title if they win their last three conference games – which include a home game against Larkin on Feb. 8 – and if East drops at least one of its final four conference games.

We’ve shown we can stay with them. We didn’t close it out but we may see them again later on.”

COACH SLY SEZ ... Good thing there are no Vegas lines on high school games because these UEC River games would probably make the line-makers loony. St. Charles East loses twice to Larkin but beats Geneva twice, so of course Geneva beats Larkin. Makes all the sense in the world, right? Similarly, Batavia recently smoked Geneva by 22 points, then gets thumped at home by the same Larkin team

that Geneva recently beat on the road. And the statute of head-scratching limitations hasn’t quite expired on lowly Streamwood beating first place Larkin to start the conference season. It all makes for a quirky race with lots of twists and turns that seems to be as much about matchups and state of mind as talent. • You can respond at kcchronicle.com/blogs/sly.

Matt Limbrunner, Kaneland, Sr., F What he did: Limbrunner led Kaneland in scoring in a pair of recent wins. He scored 22 points in Saturday’s victory against Sterling and had 12 in the Knights’ win Jan. 22 against Sycamore.

WHAT WE LEARNED LAST WEEK ... Defending co-UEC River champion St. Charles North looks like it will be dethroned. The North Stars dropped their second straight UEC River game Saturday, losing at Larkin, to fall to 4-4 in conference play – two games in the loss column behind Larkin and St. Charles East. North will try to get on track with home games Friday against Batavia and Saturday against East.

WHAT WE’LL LEARN IN THE WEEK AHEAD ... How Batavia responds to what surely will be an emotional night Saturday at Batavia’s 20th annual Night of Hoops. At about 7:15 p.m., before Batavia faces De La Salle in the Night of Hoops nightcap, Batavia plans to honor former coach Jim Roberts and his wife, Sylvia, in a pregame ceremony. Going forward, the Night of Hoops will be officially named the “Jim and Sylvia Roberts Night of Hoops.” Jim Roberts, who stepped down after 26 season this spring for family health reasons, started the annual Night of Hoops tripleheader 20 years ago.

• Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Patience is being required regarding the potential additions of Glenbard East and West Aurora to the Upstate Eight Conference – both in the short term and the long term. Glenbard East principal Josh Chambers originally hoped Glenbard East’s school board would be able to consider the UEC’s invitation to join by the end of January but he said Monday that the board is now expected to consider the move at its Feb. 11 meeting. The fates of Glenbard East and West Aurora are seemingly tied together as the UEC wants to maintain an even number of schools. West Aurora’s board already has authorized the school to make the move from the DuPage Valley Conference. Both schools, though, would not be able to join until the 2015-16 school year after the DVC board of control recently voted that the current school year does not count as one of the two years’ notice that must be given for exiting schools. Despite that decision, Chambers said that Glenbard

East is “still proceeding on the same trajectory that we were,” which included another meeting to solicit feedback from parents last week. The main concern raised has been increased travel compared to the DVC. Chambers said travel distances would be roughly 50 percent more for Glenbard East in the Upstate Eight compared to the DVC, depending on how the UEC’s divisions would be reconfigured . “There are ways you could try and balance out some of that travel,” Chambers said. “Obviously at the end of the day it is farther away but we also know right now we’re in kind of an enviable [situation] where we have it really close, and a lot of conferences are not as closely packed as we currently are.” West Chicago is slated to fill the spot of DVC-bound Lake Park next year in the UEC, replenishing the conference to 12 schools. The potential additions of West Aurora and Glenbard East could turn the UEC into a 14-team conference, provided there are no other corresponding arrivals or departures.

ST. CHARLES EAST 79, BATAVIA 66

Big 2nd quarter leads Saints past Bulldogs By AKEEM GLASPIE editorial@kcchronicle.com ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles East girls basketball team used a second-quarter offensive explosion and carried momentum into the second half to defeat Batavia, 79-66, on Saturday in an Upstate Eight Conference River shootout. The game started with a barrage of 3-pointers as the two teams combined for eight in the first quarter alone. The 3-pointers balanced out to keep the game close early, as the first quarter featured nine lead changes. However, the Saints (13-11, 8-3 UEC River) established an 11-point lead at halftime and rode the hot shooting of junior guard Amanda Hilton to the victory. Hilton led all scorers with 29 points, including four 3-pointers, and ended the game four points shy of her career high. Hilton credited extra time in

the gym working on her shot for her hot shooting, along with her teammates setting solid screens that allowed her to get open shots. “A lot of it was screens, we screened the girls this time and not air. … Our cuts were hard and we exploded off of them and found the open girl,” Hilton said. The Bulldogs (15-9, 6-4) went to a full-court press throughout the second half to try and slow down the Saints’ guards. The press, however, rarely was effective and led to easy shots for St. Charles East. Bulldogs coach Kevin Jensen said he was not pleased with his team’s defensive effort. “We didn’t do any of the things we worked on that was our deficiency [on defense],” Jensen said. “How we came off of screens off the balls, how we defended ball screens, how we try not to allow middle penetration. … We didn’t do any of those things successfully tonight.”

ELGIN – The halftime entertainment during Saturday night’s boys basketball game between St. Charles North and host Larkin featured a game among feeder program youngsters, and a Larkinbound eighth-grader caught the gymnasium’s attention with his advanced stature and ability to dunk. The Royals’ future looks promising and, once the second half resumed, the home team reminded the North Stars that the program’s present is pretty nice, too. Larkin dominated the third quarter to take control of an eventual 76-56 Upstate Eight Conference River Division win against North, sweeping the season series. The Royals (18-3, 8-2 UEC River) remained in first place in the conference by forcing 24 turnovers against North, turning many of them into instant points. “We weren’t tough enough [Saturday night], between the ears and physically,” North coach Tom Poulin said. “I thought they got to every

loose ball. If there were four hands on it, it ended up in theirs. We let some calls affect us. We let things just snowball. We didn’t just move on to the next possession, which a tough team does.” North (11-8, 4-4 UEC River) played a competitive first half and led 25-24 after a second quarter spin move by Quinten Payne, but the Royals closed the half crisply, punctuated by junior Derrick Streety’s running 28-footer at the halftime buzzer to provide Larkin a 40-32 lead. North closed within six points three times early in the third quarter but a 10-0 Larkin burst midway through the quarter padded the Royals’ lead to 54-38, and the rout was on. Rangy Larkin junior guard Kendale McCullum (game-high 20 points) was in the thick of much of the havoc Larkin created. “They’re really good onthe-ball defenders,” North senior Kyle Swanson said. “We’ve got to do a better job of helping [point guard Tony Neari] out. [McCullum] is a really quick, on-ball defender. We’ve got to do a better job of choking them off with a screen

and helping Tony out.” Larkin senior standouts Quantice Hunter and Quentin Ruff were kept to relatively quiet scoring nights but McCullum’s recent emergence gives Royals coach Deryn Carter another major threat in his deep backcourt. “Coming into the year, he was a little bit of an unknown because we moved him up [to varsity] late last year,” Carter said. “Great kid. He’s doing everything he needs to do. He’s just another guard we’ve got who can make some plays and, right now, his number’s being called more often, and hopefully in a week or two, we have another guard that can step up and answer the bell.” Both teams had success going inside in the first half, with North senior center Justin Stanko scoring all 10 of his points in the first half and 6-foot-5 Larkin junior Brayden Royse displaying a soft touch while scoring eight of his 12 points before the break. Poulin said his team’s defense – a source of optimism after the team’s strong showing at the Pontiac Holiday Tournament – has gone south in recent days.

KOVELS: ANTIQUES AND COLLECTING

BY TERRY KOVEL KOVELS.COM

Korean medicine dates back thousands of years. Sharp bone needles once used for acupuncture have been unearthed in Korea. But it was not until the end of the 19th century that doctors in the United States and other parts of Asia began to consider using the unfamiliar medical methods of another country. Koreans practicing medicine 600 years ago used herbs and other natural substances, like ground deer horn or insects. These “medicines” were stored in large cabinets with many small drawers. The herbs were mixed with other substances and administered as salves, drinks, washes or even aromatic environments. While American physicians treated a person’s symptoms, Koreans treated a patient’s emotions. In recent years, American doctors have begun prescribing meditation, heat, aromatherapy, acupuncture or Asian herbs along with antibiotics and painkillers. And the herbs often are stored in new wooden cabinets. Korean medicine chest drawers are marked with a Korean letter or word. Collectors often use them to hold small objects, like political buttons, coins or marbles. The chests are treated like expensive furniture and are kept in the hall or living room. A Korean medicine cabinet made of jujube wood sold for $1,778 at a recent Skinner auction in Boston. The 20thcentury cabinet, about 5 feet tall and 4 1/2 feet wide, has 96 drawers. *** Q: I’d like some information about a rotary egg beater that I bought at an estate sale. It’s 5 1/2 inches long and has a wooden handle. The wheel is marked with the letters “A & J” in a triangle, “Pat. Oct. 9, 1923,” and “Made in

U.S.A.” Can you tell me if it has any value? A: The patent was issued to Charles E. Kail of Binghamton,N.Y., assignor to A & J Manufacturing Co. of Binghamton. Kail’s patent was for “new and useful improvements in egg beaters.” He claimed his design made egg beaters more durable and less expensive to manufacture. A & J Manufacturing Co., founded in 1909, was bought by the Edward Katzinger Co. in 1929. Your eggbeater was made in the 1920s. Value today: $25 to $35. *** Q: I have a toy metal drum major that was given to my brother about 75 years ago. On the back it reads “No. 27 Drum Major, Made by Wolverine Supply & Mfg. Co., Pittsburgh, Pa.” Is this toy worth anything? A: Yes. Several versions of your toy, with the drum major’s jacket in different colors, were made by the Wolverine Supply and Manufacturing Co. Wind up the boy, and he beats his drum. The patent for the drummer boy was granted to Howard N. Barnum of Cleveland. He assigned the patent to Wolverine in 1932. Wolverine was founded in Pittsburgh in 1903. It became a subsidiary of Span Industries in the late 1950s, and its name was changed to Today’s Kids in the 1970s. The company is no longer in business. The value of your drummer boy depends on its condition and the color of the jacket. Auction prices range from $40 to $125. *** Q: I have a Lambert typewriter in a wooden case marked with the patent date, Oct. 21, 1884. It has a felt inkpad. Is it valuable?

from France in 1876. He worked on developing a “type writing machine” for 17 years before being granted a patent in 1884. The first Lambert typewriters were sold in 1902. They had a keyboard with an attached circular plate that was turned to print each letter. The keyboard on the earliest model could be turned in either direction to make letters that slanted like italics. The next model had a fixed keyboard and a shift key that made capital letters. Lambert made three typewriter models, and sold more than 8,000 in the three years they were made. The last Lambert typewriter was manufactured in 1904.

On Groundhog Day, weather forecasters in the U.S. look to Punxsutawney Phil for advice. Here’s his story.

Help the Woodchuck Find His Bedroom

On February 2, the town of Punxsutawney, Pa., begins the big Groundhog Day celebration before sunrise.

Do Not Disturb!

Each August the woodchuck, alsoo known as a ggroundhog, roun ro undh dhog dh og, goes on an eating binge.

Standards Link: Reading Comprehension.

He starts to eat and eat and eat. A layer of fat that is at least of an inch thick forms on its body.

Find the words in the puzzle. Then look for each word in this week’s Kid Scoop stories and activities.

Before it gets sleepy, the woodchuck builds an underground home with tunnels and rooms, with a soft mattress of grass and leaves in the bedroom. As the weather gets colder in the fall, the fat woodchuck heads for its bedroom.

The legend says that if the sun is out, I see my shadow, get scared, and hide back in my burrow, and spring will not arrive for another six weeks.

The woodchuck curls up into a ball and falls into such a deep sleep that it appears dead. This is called hibernation. Its heart slows from beats per minute to only about . Its body temperature drops from degrees Fahrenheit to about . A hibernating woodchuck could be rolled around like a ball, and it would not wake up! Standards Link: Life Science: Understand how animals can adapt to their environment.

As the sun rises, I get ready to emerge from my stump. All eyes are on me!

Standards Link: Visual Discrimination: Eye-hand co-ordination.

Standards Link: Letter sequencing. Recognized identical words. Skim and scan reading. Recall spelling patterns.

Get to the Roots

Find words in the newspaper that have suffixes and/or prefixes. For each word that you find, circle the root word and underline the prefix and/or suffix.

Use the code to tell what time you do each of the following: Example: If you do homework at 4:30, show it this way…

But if the sun isn’t shining, then there are no shadows to be seen. I stay out looking for food, and spring will arrive very soon!

Standards Link: Vocabulary: Identify suffixes and prefixes.

Standards Link: Math: Associate symbols to numerals; compare time to realted events.

Scientists have found a special chemical in the blood of hibernating animals. They call it HIT or Hibernation Inducement Trigger. Although they do not know what this chemical is, they do know that it appears when one of three things happens: • the days become shorter and there is less light • there is a big drop in temperature • food is scarce

Look at your newspaper’s weather forecast for the coming week. Then search through the newspaper and circle words that could be used to describe the expected weather conditions. Standards Link: Research: Use the newspaper to locate information.

Once my prediction has been made, the crowd cheers for me. Then I go back to sleep until spring!

Imagine that you were going to hibernate for the winter. Write about how you’d prepare and what it would be like to wake up after sleeping so long.

Standards Link: History: Students understand the traditions, events and legends associated with special days.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAYS

– United Feature Syndicate

HOROSCOPE By Bernice Bede Osol Newspaper Enterprise Association TODAY – You need not be fearful of having more than one major objective in the year ahead. Even if others might be unable to handle multiple ventures simultaneously, you should be able to do so with grace and aplomb. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – An involvement where you share a mutual interest with another should work out quite smoothly today in some dealings you have with a person who is very difficult to please. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – The timing could be unusually good for you to make a request of someone who doesn’t readily grant favors. Point out to this person what would be in it for him or her. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – By cleaning out the basement, attic or garage, you might discover some gems that you put aside in the past and forgot about. Be sure to open all those old boxes. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – A social gathering could pair you with someone whom you’ve been very eager to approach. Don’t be hesitant to introduce the reason why you wanted to get in touch. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Certain financial or commercial matters can be successfully concluded to your satisfaction if you’re willing to take the time and effort to do so. Don’t coast when you can run. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Someone older or more experienced might point out a new direction for you. It could be some of the best advice you’ve received in a long time. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – You’re in a favorable cycle for profiting from situations initiated by someone else. Be on the alert for anything different that sounds enticing. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Even if some of your present expectations seem to be a bit outlandish to some of your friends, they really aren’t that far-fetched from your perspective. Your view is clearer than theirs. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Something extremely constructive could develop through the efforts of another, which will give you the assistance you need to get ahead. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – You’re likely to get an opportunity to cultivate a new friendship. It might even be with someone whom you’ve been anxious to get to know better. This could be the start of something beautiful. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – A little extra effort where your career is concerned could put you out in front of the pack. Be assertive and conscientious when pursuing your objectives. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – If you allow a past educational experience to guide you, everything should work out quite beautifully in your dealings with someone who is very difficult to please.

Making the most of this Oscar season It’s that Hollywood time of the year again, and the Oscar nominations find their way into conversations everywhere. For the past 25 years my wife, Cathy, and I have dealt with “movie month” – the period between nomination day, Jan. 9, and the Academy Award ceremony on Feb. 24 – in a special way. We see every film nominated in the six major categories awarded, and then on red carpet night celebrate our own awards. It’s not easy, and it takes some organization, but the effort has its rewards. There are a few helpful tips to help accomplish the task. First, you need a checklist of films you need to see. This year, 13 movies comprise the award categories for best movie, director, actress, actor, supporting actor and supporting actress. This is a good year to try to see films featuring nomi-

VIEWS Bob Habes nations because in previous years that number has run as high as 18 movies. And, most of the nominated films this year are commercial releases with commercial appeal. You’ve probably seen three or more already. However, some, like “Amour,” may require a trip to Chicago. Also, “The Master” and “The Sessions” were recently re-released in Chicago and La Grange, respectively. As of today, every film is still in theaters, and two of them will be available on DVD. I’ve been doing this for a long time, and I think this is the first time in 28 years that all of the films have been in theaters during the weeks approaching the Oscars. For those with an over-

Thirteen nominated films to see before Oscar night Feb. 24 include:

‘Argo’

• Best Picture • Best Supporting Actor – Alan Arkin

‘Les Misérables’

• Best Picture • Best Actor – Hugh Jackman • Best Supporting Actress – Anne Hathaway

‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’

(Currently available on DVD) • Best Picture • Best Director – Benh Zeitlin • Best Actress – Quvenzhané Wallis

‘Silver Linings Playbook’

• Best Picture • Best Director – David O. Russell • Best Actor – Bradley Cooper • Best Actress – Jennifer Lawrence

oscar.go.com photo

Jessica Chastain (pictured at the 84th annual Academy Awards ceremony) is a best actress Oscar nominee for her role in “Zero Dark Thirty.” active occasion gene, spend a few minutes on the Internet reading about film editing. By seeing this year’s 13 films, you will also be qualified to judge that category, too. The nominated films for editing are “Argo,” “Lincoln,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Life of Pi,” and “Zero Dark Thirty.”

The last thing to do is plan your level of party for the awards night itself. Generally, Cathy and I reserve a table at a local bistro, drop off our ballots earlier (plenty available for copying on the Internet) for delivery during the meal. We vote two ways. First, we vote on who we think is going to win. Then we write our personal favorite, keeping them secret. We rush home after dinner, catch a little red carpet on TV, and then open our ballots when each category is awarded in Hollywood. It’s a lot of fun, you will be surprised at the great variety of films you will see, and often there is a good meal and an evocative discussion in the bargain.

Man with past hesitates to reveal it Dear Abby: I am a 29-year-old man with a criminal record. I got involved in some fraud and embezzlement rings when I was in my early 20s, and served nine months before being released on parole. Since then I have moved in with my mother, found a job, and I’m trying to be the man I know I’m capable of being. I have reached the point where I’d like to begin dating again. The problem is, I don’t know when the time is right to bring up my past. If I wait too long, my name is mud for not saying anything sooner. Can you help me? – A Better Man in New York Dear Better Man: I agree that the chapter of your life in which you were in prison is not something you should reveal on a first date. But do raise the subject around the fourth date, because by then the woman will have had a chance to get to know you. When you bring it up, make it clear that you didn’t go to jail for a violent crime and you’re not on any offenders’ list. If she likes you, she’ll hear you out and understand that you don’t plan to repeat your past mistakes. Men

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips who have served their time can go on to lead successful lives, and tell her that you plan to be one of them. Dear Abby: I am blessed with two beautiful daughters. One is 13; the other is 4 months old. For 11 years my 13-year-old, “Lily,” was my life. I had dated, but they were all Mr. Wrongs. Two years ago I finally met a wonderful man, “Kevin.” He is good to me, and he and Lily get along to a point, but he’s shy and doesn’t talk much. Kevin moved in with us a few months after I found out I was pregnant. I try to include Lily in our new family, but she feels left out. She stays in her room and doesn’t have much to do with Kevin. She wouldn’t go with me to the baby’s doctor appointments and pretty much ignores her new baby sister. I have told myself she’ll come around, but it hasn’t happened. What can I do to assure Lily that I love her as much as I

always have? I want our family to be happy. I hope to eventually marry Kevin. Lily’s dad isn’t very involved in her life. Every time I try to include Lily, she gets mad and says she doesn’t want to do the family functions. Help, please. – West Virginia Mom Dear Mom: Thirteen can be a difficult age and your work is cut out for you. You will have to be more proactive in order to make this arrangement function more like a family. Kevin may be shy, but he should be encouraged to make more of an effort to get to know Lily. As the adult, it is his job to break the ice and find something in common with her. Also, Lily should not be allowed to hide out in her room and not participate in any activities. If you permit the status quo to continue, at some point she will start looking for a place where she feels she “belongs” in a situation beyond your control or supervision. If you are out of ideas on how to get your daughter to cooperate, then involve a family therapist to help you through the roadblocks. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Yoga can be a good antidote to stress Dear Doctor K: I know yoga has a lot of physical benefits, but is it true yoga can help reduce stress as well? Dear Reader: Many people initially come to yoga to become physically fit, but they soon discover the psychological benefits. In addition to being great exercise, yoga is one of the best antidotes to the stress of modern living. I won’t go as far as saying it is a fountain of youth, but I will say it can be a fountain of calm and equanimity. The first person I ever knew who regularly practiced yoga was an intense and ambitious young doctor. Any conversation with him was short and difficult; he completed your sentences for you and interrupted you at will. He was very smart and had a lot of valuable things to say, but that didn’t mean you looked forward to talking with him. Then something odd happened. I had a conversation with him in which he didn’t interrupt me. A few weeks later, I had another. What was going on? I learned from his wife that she’d suggested, strongly, that he try

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff yoga – and he loved it. In addition to physical postures and exercises, traditional yoga incorporates breath control, deep relaxation, meditation, concentration and mindfulness. These mind-body practices counteract stress by evoking the relaxation response. When we feel stress, our bodies enter “fight or flight” mode. We release stress hormones that put our brain and body on high alert. This “fight or flight” response was of great help to our distant ancestors when they were running from a lion, and it’s also of great help today when we face an urgent and dangerous situation. It can even help in dealing with a sudden stressful situation that really isn’t dangerous – like talking your way out of a speeding ticket. But over time, stress can take a toll on your mental and physical health. The relaxation response is es-

sentially the opposite of the stress response. It lowers heart rate and blood pressure and decreases the production of stress hormones. Practicing yoga leads to changes in the mind and body that promote feelings of tranquility and well-being. My friend Dr. Herbert Benson, a famous meditation researcher here at Harvard Medical School, described the following exercises to elicit the relaxation response. Give them a try to see if they help you to feel more relaxed: • Select a word, mantra, prayer or thought. Focus your attention on it in a relaxed manner. • When other, everyday thoughts intrude, let them go. Refocus your attention on step one in a relaxed and patient manner without frustration or judgment. Start by doing this for five minutes. Gradually increase the amount of time you spend on the exercises.

What are the odds of not getting pregnant? Dr. Wallace: My boyfriend and I have been together almost a year, and we think it is time to start a sexual relationship. We have both heard from our friends that sex is the ultimate in a loving relationship, and we both love each other very much and want to take our love to another level. Since both of us are Catholic, we have always been taught that it is sinful to use contraceptives to avoid pregnancy. I have read books explaining the best time for a female to have sex and not get pregnant, and we plan to use this information. I hope I won’t get pregnant, but if I do, we will get married immediately because we love each other and already plan to be married in the near future. We are both 19 and would be 20 if a child is brought into this world because of our love. My boyfriend is really into statistics, and he wants to know the odds of my not getting pregnant in a year’s time if we have sex once a week during that time. I thought you might have information on this subject and would appreciate anything you can tell us. – Sissy, Atlanta, Ga. Dear Sissy: You will probably get pregnant. Several years ago, the Alan Guttmacher Institute reported that if teens do not use effective contraceptives, the chance of pregnancy is 90 percent. Since you were taught that using contraceptives was sinful, you also must know that premarital sex is also against the church’s teachings. My advice is that you give up the selective theology and make

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace some real decisions about your life. Practice abstinence, as the church teaches, or use a condom, possibly in combination with other birth control, as science teaches. And if you are going to marry, make that decision and announce it to the world. Don’t wait for an unplanned pregnancy to make the announcement for you! Dr. Wallace: I remembered reading your column praising teens for being excellent volunteers helping those who are in need. I’d like to inform you that our cheerleaders and pep squad held a “Sandy” car wash on a Saturday afternoon, and we earned $425, which was given to the Red Cross to aid those in need after the devastating hurricane that destroyed parts of the East coast. – Nameless, Phoenix, Ariz. Dear Nameless: Congratulations! When it comes to volunteering, no group does it better than teens like you. You made your high school proud.

CROSSWORD

SUDOKU

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

• Tuesday, January 29, 2013

CELEBRITY CIPHER

Benjamin Franklin said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” At the bridge table, we try to use the knowledge gleaned from the bidding and the play (as it progresses) to make informed decisions. How should the play go in this three-no-trump contract after West leads the spade queen? What is the key piece of knowledge declarer wants and East must keep hidden? South starts with seven top tricks: two spades, one heart, three diamonds and one club. He could attack either hearts or clubs, but the minor suit offers much better chances for three tricks. Declarer ducks the first trick, takes the second spade with his king, plays a diamond to dummy’s queen, and leads a club to his nine. West wins this with, say, the queen (he should vary his play in this situation) and continues with another spade to dummy’s ace. Now comes dummy’s last club. What happens next? If East carelessly plays his eight, South should put up his ace, dropping West’s king and collecting 11 tricks. Why should he drop the king? Given that East is known to have the club 10 from the first round of the suit, when East plays the club eight second, he started with 10-8-5 or K-10-8-5. In the second case, the contract is unmakable. However, on the second round of clubs, East should follow the excellent principle of playing the card he is known to hold. If he puts up the 10, declarer will place him with K-10-5, finesse his club jack, and go down three.
