A candlelight vigil to remember Newtown, Conn., victims was held Monday evening at the corner of Batavia Avenue and Wilson Street.

Gun control at forefront of vigil By NICOLE WESKERNA

nweskerna@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – More than 50 people gathered Monday for a vigil in Batavia to mark one month since the Newtown, Conn., school shooter killed 28 people, including 20 children and himself. The group stood with lit candles at the corner of Batavia Avenue and Wilson Street holding signs, including one that said “Remember Newtown.” Robin and Jane Thompson of Batavia joined the vigil. “There’s got to be a way to prevent gun violence,” Robin Thompson said. “There’s a solution; you just have to find it,” Jane Thompson said. On Dec. 14, 20-year-old Adam Lanza entered Sandy Hook Elementary School, where he shot and killed 20 children and six educators before killing himself. The national conversation has since turned to gun control and how to prevent such tragedies from happening. The vigil was the same day President Barack Obama planned to review recommendations by Vice President Joe

“As an educator, we have enough struggles with the challenges we face in education. Violence in schools is not fair to children. We’re better than that.” Tony Malay

President of Batavia Education Association Biden’s task force on gun violence. Page McCloud, who organized the vigil with his wife, Carol McCloud, said the goal was to keep gun issues “on the front burner.” “We can’t let it drift away,” he said. Page McCloud said he and his wife have never organized anything like Monday’s vigil, but they are very active with their church. “We’ve always been concerned about how if you sit quietly on the sidelines ... sometimes what a lot of people are thinking doesn’t get out there,” he said. “I think we hear a calling every so often about things.” He said he hoped those who joined the vigil would quietly demonstrate the need to keep gun issues front and center,

and most importantly, the need to find a solution. Bill and Susan Price of Warrenville said they hoped the country would continue to talk about mental health issues and banning assault rifles. Susan Price said she believes part of the solution is to make sure people with mental health issues get appropriate treatment in appropriate facilities, and that early intervention could help. Bill Price, an attorney, said he believes it should be illegal for civilians to own assault weapons and to limit the use of assault weapons to be in the hands of trained militia. He said Australia’s government toughened its gun laws a few years ago, and the country has had no mass gun casualties since. Tony Malay, president of the

Batavia Education Association, attended the vigil with his wife and three children. He said it’s easy for conversations to stop with time, but it’s important to keep the issues alive. “As an educator, we have enough struggles with the challenges we face in education,” he said. “Violence in schools is not fair to children. We’re better than that.” Lori Martin of Oswego said Monday’s vigil was an opportunity for her to stand up for what she believes in. She held a sign Monday that said “Ban Assault Weapons.” “I can’t see any other logic,” she said. “It would probably have saved a lot of those kids in Newtown.”

More than cookies

Annual treat sales teach Girl Scouts money management, people skills Cookie facts

By ASHLEY RHODEBECK

arhodebeck@shawmedia.com When members of Brownie Troop 4106 sold Girl Scout cookies as kindergartners, they were “super nervous,” selling mainly to friends and family, co-leader Renee Dee said. Last year, the troop began participating in booth sales at places such as grocery stores. In their third year of selling Girl Scout cookies, Dee said, the second-graders are over their fear and are focused on selling even more of the treats. “You really see the girls taking ownership of it,” Dee said. The girls of Troop 4106 are among thousands of Girl Scouts in northern Illinois taking orders for Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos and other flavors through Jan. 27. Booth sales are scheduled for late February and March. While Troop 4106 aims to sell 75 boxes per girl – and some girls strive for more than that, Dee said – Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois reported the region’s top seller sold 1,600 boxes last year. Regionally, nearly 16,000 Girl Scouts sold 1,622,100 boxes of cookies in 2011, generating about $5 million in proceeds, according to the council. Nationally, Girl Scouts of the USA reported 207 million boxes with an estimated retail value of $760 million were sold in the 2011-12 cookie season. “It really is the largest girlled business in the country, and we’re very proud of that,” said Vicki Wright, CEO of Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois. According to the Girl Scouts of the USA, the association between Girl Scouts and cookies dates to 1917, when members of an Oklahoma troop baked cookies and sold them in their school cafeteria as a service project. Five years later, “The American Girl” magazine published a cookie recipe and suggested Girl Scouts sell the treats for 25 to 30 cents per dozen, the organization reported.

Biggest sellers • 25 percent – Thin Mints • 19 percent – Samoas/Caramel deLites • 13 percent – Peanut Butter Patties/Tagalongs • 11 percent – Peanut Butter Sandwich/Do-si-dos • 9 percent – Shortbread/Trefoils • 23 percent – Other varieties

Rylie Flatt, 8, a member of Brownie Troop 4106, goes over her Girl Scout cookie sale form during the troop’s meeting at the Sugar Grove Public Library. Girl Scouts throughout the country reportedly baked sugar cookies with their mothers, packaged them in wax paper bags and sold them door to door in the 1920s and ’30s. The cookie program expanded and evolved in the following decades as new flavors were developed and the national Girl Scout organization began licensing commercial bakers to make cookies to sell nationwide. Today, Girl Scouts of the USA reports about 65 percent of registered Girl Scouts choose to participate annually in the cookie program, which

expanded this year to include snack bars. The cookie program also has gone high-tech. Some troops are using a mobile app to accept credit card payments during booth sales, Wright said, and a cookie finder app is available for download. Parental involvement in the Girl Scout Cookie Program is common, but girls are encouraged to sell the treats themselves or, if their parents sell the cookies at work, to at least deliver the cookies or write a thank you note to the customers, Wright said. “The girl has some part

of the process,” Wright said. “We don’t want it to be just a parent thing.” By selling cookies, Wright said, the girls are learning skills such as goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. “[They’re] learning how to be little businesswomen,” Wright said. Members of Cadette Troop 4298 said while cuteness can be an advantage when selling cookies, going door to door also means encountering scary dogs, having doors slammed in your face and

Coultrap forum ponders school’s fate By BRENDA SCHORY

bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – At the third and last forum Monday on Coultrap, Geneva School District 304 officials outlined dire financial challenges of keeping the facility open, essentially paving the way to justify tearing it down. School board President Mark Grosso said the board would decide at its Jan. 28 meeting. Board member Michael McCormick said he has decided the building must come down. “Given our fiscal issues, we have looked at this 15 ways to Sunday,” McCormick said. “This old girl is fading fast. It has historic

implications, but boy, the numbers hurt.” But Terry Emma, executive director of the Geneva History Center, said she feels sick at the thought of the school being torn down. “I voted for the [2007] referendum to build Williamsburg because I was told [Coultrap] was going to be reused,” Emma said. “Now I kind of feel like I’ve been cheated.” Grosso read an extended statement on the costs of trying to keep the nearly 90-year-old school open. In short, renovation and repair estimates were $2.3 million to $4.3 million as opposed to razing the building at a cost of $862,000. If the district were to bring the school back

to standards for students to attend, the cost would be nearly $16 million. The district’s presentation to a handful of residents included a slide show of the building’s internal problems, which include leaks, deteriorating windows, broken pipes and compressors that don’t work. Coultrap was closed in 2009 when Williamsburg Elementary School was built to replace it. “This building probably needed a larger investment to save it than we could provide,” Grosso said. Even renting out the building was not an option, Grosso said. The only one to show interest was the Kane County Regional Office of

Education, and what the district would receive in rent would barely cover the district’s annual maintenance cost. It costs about $69,000 annually to operate Coultrap at a minimal level. Grosso said the district would not sell the land because the nearby high school is landlocked and might need room to expand in the future. Resident Glorianne Campbell said she attended Coultrap for three years when it was a high school. “I have a definite sense that the school district made a decision [to demolish] before they got to the first

meeting,” Campbell said. “In three years, I think you let it go … What you have planned for this building makes me quite sick to my stomach.” Board member Mary Stith defended the district’s efforts, saying Coultrap and other older school buildings simply cost more to keep up than newer buildings. “It’s one thing after another,” Stith said. “We did not let the building fall into disrepair.” Emma said the Geneva History Center would host a Coultrap program from noon to 1 p.m. Feb. 12 to celebrate the building and its memories.

District 304 to sell 28 acres By BRENDA SCHORY

bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Geneva School District 304 officials voted Monday to authorize the sale of 28 acres it owns on the northwest corner of Keslinger and Brundige roads. The minimum selling price is $2.2 million, officials said. The district has 60 days to sell the property by sealed bids. Officials said the land is unnecessary, unsuitable and in-

convenient for a school. If it does not sell at the minimum price, the district may go to auction, Assistant Superintendent for Business Services Donna Oberg said. If it does not sell at auction, then it can be put up for sale through a real estate agent with a commission not to exceed 7 percent. Oberg said the district paid nearly $1.5 million for the property in January 2007 for a maintenance facility and bus

parking. Half the money came from the operations and maintenance fund and half from the transportation fund. After the economy tanked, the district did not have a need to build a maintenance facility and uses extra space at the middle schools to park buses. The sale price is higher to make up for the additional cost of investing on frontage and retention on the property, Oberg said.

Each troop receives portion of cookie proceeds • COOKIES

Continued from page 4 “It does a lot for your confidence,” Lizzy Kramer added. Now that they’re seventhgraders, it’s harder to find the time to sell door to door, the cadettes said. They still work booth sales and come up with creative ways to attract attention. Last year, members wore a cookie costume, tap danced and played instruments. “I think it worked,” Lizzy said. This year, the troop is

brainstorming places where their cookie booths might be welcomed because the demand for booths at groceries and other retailers is so high, co-leader Christine Gerke said. Each troop receives a portion of the Girl Scout Cookie Program proceeds as discretionary funds for troop activities. Troop 4298 has used cookie money to fund a trip to Willis Tower and pay for membership fees and other activities, members said, noting they want to go to a water park this year. Meanwhile, Troop

4106 decided half of this year’s cookie money will go back to the troop while the other half will go toward a community service project, Dee said. Dee said the troop has spent three meetings highlighting the cookie program, going over topics such as customer bases. “They are totally pumped,” she said of the Brownies. She’s a fan of the program, too. “There’s so much skill building involved,” Dee said. “They’re skills you don’t always learn in school.”

D-304 on lockdown after incident KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE editorial@kcchronicle.com

GENEVA – Geneva schools were placed on lockdown Monday when three suspects were arrested near Fabyan Elementary School after a shooting incident in Sugar Grove. According to the Kane County Sheriff’s Office, the incident took place about 3:15 p.m. in the area of Routes 30 and 47 in Sugar Grove. A subject inside one vehicle fired several shots from what appeared to be a BB pistol at another vehicle. The victim then followed the offending vehicle into South Mill Creek. Deputies stopped the suspects at the intersection of South Mill Drive and Fabyan Parkway, where the suspects were taken into custody. Deputies recovered an Airsoft pistol that closely resembles a handgun, according to a news release. Because of the nature of the call, Geneva

Students already had been dismissed and were gone for the day at that time. Those arrested include Hector Rubio, 18, of the 200 block of Bluegrass Parkway in Oswego; Michael Thompson, 20, of the 20 block of Oakwood Drive in Oswego; and Elle Fowler, 18, of the 3100 block of Thunderbird Court in Aurora.

BATAVIA – With guitar in hand, Rebecca Strand of Batavia performed an original song, “Press On,” in front of the judges Sunday at the Batavia Public Library in the hopes of landing a spot on BATV’s new reality show, “Project Publish.” While the judges applauded Strand on her musicianship, they gave her another challenge – to make a song out of a short story written by another contestant. Strand said she was up for it. “I’ve never written a song on the spot before,” said Strand, 22. “I’ve always done it at my own tempo. But if I don’t step outside my comfort zone, I’ll never grow.” Auditions will continue Sunday at the St. Charles Public Library for the 14 participant slots that are open for “Project Publish,” a sevenweek episode show that will broadcast live from BATV on Sunday afternoons Feb. 10 through March 24. Each week, a performer randomly will be paired up with a writer. “They can bring somebody else’s work to life,” said local writer and St. Charles resident Richard Graves, host and creative director of the show. Graves had bemoaned the

this Sunday. That included Andrew Schroeder, 25, of Batavia who read a piece called, “And A Bright Light Caught Us Standing There,” that revolved around an experience about how he got arrested after climbing on top of the roof at Rotolo Middle School the summer after he graduated from high school. “I figured I would give it a shot,” Schroeder said. “I figured it would be a cool thing to be a part of.” Donald Bingle, a published area writer and a judge for “Project Publish,” viewed the piece favorably. “It’s a nice, frozen moment in time,” Bingle told Schroeder. “A little more detail would have made it more vivid for me.” Bingle said he wants to offer constructive criticism to the contestants. “We’re not here to be mean,” he said. “I think we are here to be honest with people about their strengths and weaknesses.” Information about “Project Publish” is available by visiting BATV’s website at www. batv.us.

Turnout for ESO may prompt more dates Batavia center sells 540 tickets to classical musical performance, exceeds expectations By JONATHAN BILYK

jbilyk@shawmedia.com

BATAVIA – More live classical music could be in the Tri-Cities’ future. Last week, the Elgin Symphony Orchestra performed at the Batavia Fine Arts Centre for the first time. Representatives of the ESO and the venue said the public response to the performance exceeded their expectations. Dominic Cattero, manager at the Batavia Fine Arts Centre, said the orchestra sold 540 tickets for the Thursday performance of Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons,” accompanied by a performance of Tchaikovsky’s “Serenade for Strings in C Major.” The arts center can accom-

modate 890 patrons. However, Cattero and Cheryl Wendt, director of marketing for the ESO, said they had expected about 500 to attend. “It was just wonderful,” Wendt said. “For the first time there, in the cold of January, to have a turnout like that, is just excellent.” Cattero said the performance was more than a year in the making. The orchestra and BFAC administration had worked since 2011 to bring the ESO to the Tri-Cities. The Hemmens Auditorium in Elgin serves as the home venue for the ESO. However, the orchestra also regularly performs at the Prairie Center for the Arts in Schaumburg. Representatives of the ESO

have stated that they are attempting to grow the Elgin orchestra’s base of support. The Batavia concert was intended to serve as a centerpiece of the orchestra’s outreach efforts in the Tri-Cities. Cattero and Wendt said future performances in Batavia are being discussed. Wendt said performers for the Elgin orchestra “loved” the environment at the Batavia auditorium, and they would welcome a return to the venue. “We’d love to be back,” she said. How many Batavia performances might lie ahead remains unclear. Wendt said it could depend on the outcomes of contract negotiations between the or-

Mill Creek parent issues apology, blames media for causing fear By BRENDA SCHORY

bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA–Facingano-trespass order issued last week by Geneva School District 304, a man posted an apology on his Facebook page that, in part, blames news media for causing fear in the community after an incident at Mill Creek Elementary School. Colin McGroarty, 41, whose children attend the school, became upset last week when he said the kindergartners left out the word “liberty” from the pledge. According to a statement by the district, McGroarty used “language that is not typically heard in a school setting.” Also according to a district statement, the word “liberty” was not left out and the Pledge of Allegiance is recited daily in all of Geneva’s schools. “I am apologizing because the verbiage used by some of the papers … frankly has scared a lot of people in the community,” McGroarty

said. “People have really been scared and put in fear by [media] taking some items out of context.” Also according to McGroarty’s posting, “I would like to apologize to Geneva area residents for unintentionally contributing to a heightened state of fear in the local area … Please understand that generating fear was not the intent … at NO POINT were the children or school officials ever threatened.” McGroarty sent emails to school officials and parents. The district issued a notrespass order so McGroarty cannot come on the property without being arrested. The district also called for an increased police presence at all of its schools. He said his goal is not to be thought of as a threat or to cause fear. “I’d also like to clarify that the ‘disturbance’ where I told the children they shouldn’t promise to follow rules when they don’t know what the rules are and to ask their par-

ents about the Nazis and why this lesson is important, did NOT include any profanity,” McGroarty’s Facebook posting states. According to his Facebook posting McGroarty wrote before the disturbance, he asked to speak to the Mill Creek principal twice and was denied. “They said, ‘No, he is not available to speak at this time,’ ” McGroarty said. “While I have no doubt that had school officials been willing to discuss the issue, the outcome would have been quite different, that does not excuse my releasing such a statement without first having someone else proofread the statement, and distracts from the real issue with which I’m concerned,” McGroarty’s Facebook apology states. School board President Mark Grosso said he was not aware of McGroarty’s online apology. “I have not seen anything, and I have no comments about anything,” Grosso said.

chestra administration and the performers’ union. But Cattero said the next performance likely would not come until the beginning of the next performance season, which runs from late summer to late spring.

He said the BFAC is “very booked up” through July. “So the next available date won’t be until their next performance season,” Cattero said. “But we certainly hope to see many, many more of these performances here.”

City pushes for progress on McIlvaine house By ERIC SCHELKOPF

eschelkopf@shawmedia.com GENEVA – The city hopes to see more progress on Clifford McIlvaine’s decadeslong home-improvement project as spring approaches. Kane County Judge David Akemann on Monday granted the city’s request for a continuation of the case until 10:30 a.m. April 12. The city previously had asked for a hearing for demolition or repair of the property at 605 Prairie St. Phil Luetkehans, an attorney for St. Charles, said installation of the roof has not

begun. “The roof cannot be constructed until temperatures rise,” he said after the hearing. “We are hoping Mr. McIlvaine makes significant progress in the spring. If we fail to see Clifford the progress McIlvaine we think we should, we will proceed with our motion for demolition or repair of the property.” McIlvaine started the project in 1975, and city officials

want him to comply with a court order to finish the project. The project was supposed to be completed by the end of September, according to the order. The city sued McIlvaine in 2010, pushing him to get the project finished. A work schedule later was agreed upon in court. McIlvaine faces a $100 a day penalty for every day he is behind. Luetkehans estimated that if he finished the project in July, he would have to pay $40,000 in penalties, plus attorney fees. McIlvaine complained to Akemann about the city’s

Man, 48, hit by car on Fabyan Parkway remains hospitalized By ERIC SCHELKOPF

eschelkopf@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – A 48-year-old Geneva man remains hospitalized after he was hit by a car Friday night on Fabyan Parkway. “He is still at Delnor Hospital recovering from injuries,” Batavia police Detective Kevin Bretz said Monday. He didn’t know the man’s condi-

tion, and police have not revealed his name. A 28-year-old Aurora woman was driving a 2013 Honda Accord west on Fabyan Parkway at 6:32 p.m. when her car hit the pedestrian at Allen Drive, across the street from The Holmstad retirement community, Bretz said. “She was driving in the inside lane and moved to the outside lane to avoid hitting

him,” he said. The woman didn’t avoid hitting the pedestrian, Bretz said. The Batavia police and the Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team are investigating the accident. “I don’t know if charges will be filed,” he said. Bretz said he didn’t think there was a crosswalk where the incident occurred.

According to state officials,

summary of the case in court records. “I understand that you need a correct statement of the facts,” McIlvaine told Akemann. McIlvaine recently corrected the plumbing system in his house as ordered by the court and St. Charles city officials. McIlvaine had been warned that he had to prevent his cistern water system from connecting to the city’s water supply or the city would proceed with an application for demolition or repair of the house. A cistern is a tank for stor-

ing rainwater. McIlvaine’s cistern water was tested twice, and one test revealed the presence of E. coli, bacteria that comes from feces. McIlvaine has signed a court order saying he will not use it for bathing or drinking water, and the city wanted to make sure the system does not pollute city water. He had been jailed for two weeks in August after a previous judge found him in contempt of court. “We don’t want to put the rest of the homeowners in the city at risk,” Luetkehans said. “We don’t want to risk their health.”

“In either case, it’s new money. The reimbursement seems fair.”

ST. CHARLES – A company specializing in upscale recreational vehicles is asking the city for a tax break should it relocate to St. Charles. Economic Development Director Chris Aiston on Monday told the Planning and Development Committee it would be great to have a business such as US Adventure RV in the city. In addition to generating business and bolstering existing businesses, he said, the RV company would make use of an underused building.

“This is our shot at it now,” Aiston said. The Iowa-based company is considering leasing about 8,000 square feet of the Fox River Harley-Davidson building at 131 S. Randall Road. It operates a satellite location in Joliet, and moving to St. Charles would bring the company closer to its customers in the northwest suburbs, company President John Dresselhaus said. Moving costs are estimat-

ed at $590,000. US Adventure RV has asked St. Charles to reimburse a portion of anticipated sales tax revenues not to exceed $250,000 or for a period of six years, whichever happens first. Seventy-five percent of the municipal sales tax would be reimbursed in year one, 70 percent in year two, 65 percent in year three, 60 percent in year four and 50 percent in years five and six, if necessary.

Horse, knight statue stolen By BRENDA SCHORY

bschory@shawmedia.com

GENEVA – A nine-foot metal statue of a horse and knight was reported stolen from a parkway on Randall Road at Fargo Boulevard. Local artist Francis Joseph Gagnepain IV of Batavia created the sculpture out of bicycle parts in 2000. According to police re-

ports, the sculpture was stolen between Jan. 3 and 6. It was on the west side of South Randall Road in the 1100 block. Gagnepain’s sculptures are well-known in the area. The statue weighs 300 to 400 pounds, according to reports. Gagnepain said the statute had fallen over in the wind, and someone possibly thought it was scrap metal.

“It was not fastened down,” Gagnepain said. “I’m just heartbroken.” Gagnepain said a family in Batavia owns the horse, and he owns the knight. The value of the statue is about $2,000. Gagnepain said he hoped someone would have information about the statue and could tell police. The Geneva Police Department can be reached at 630-232-4736.

sales tax,” he said. In return, the company must operate in St. Charles for 10 years. Failure to do so would result in the company having to repay the money. The committee unani mously recommended that the City Council direct staff to draft an economic development incentive agreement with US Adventure RV. Several aldermen, however, said they wanted information on topics such as sewage costs and the company’s finances. “I don’t have enough information here,” 4th Ward Alderman Jim Martin said, referencing literature distributed at the meeting.

OPINIONS ANOTHER VIEW

Being more resilient to biological threats THE WASHINGTON POST

Your neighbor the next cubicle over coughs loudly, then you overhear him complaining about a fever – and you wonder if you might be the next victim. You quickly type “preventing the flu” into Google, and your query becomes one more indication to the search engine’s mavens that this year’s influenza season is bad. In conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Google’s “Flu Trends” tracks influenza activity in real time by monitoring how often people search for flu-related terms. It wouldn’t surprise anyone who has tried to sign in at a packed emergency room or who is trying to obtain scarce vaccine that Google reckons that flu activity in the United States is “intense.” But the country has been – and should continue – preparing for worse. CDC data out Friday show that the flu struck early this season, shooting up in December when it usually peaks in January or February, and it struck hard. Doctor visits for influenza-like illness, a primary measure of infection, are classified as high for half the country. The last time flu activity was this severe so early was during the particularly deadly 2003-04 season. Add an influenza cliff, too, to the possible drags on the economy; normal flu seasons cost the country more than $10 billion. This year, more Americans cashing in sick days might push that toll up. The Post’s Lena H. Sun reported Thursday that Americans are scrambling to find late-season flu shots, hopping from drugstore to drugstore in search of antigenladen elixir. Manufacturers have been scrounging for spare supplies, but they already have

shipped 95 percent of their run for this year, and because of archaic and time-consuming production methods they don’t have time to make more. Pharmaceutical companies still mass produce flu vaccine in chicken eggs. That generally works fine for standard seasonal flu vaccines, because manufacturers have upward of half a year to produce millions of doses. But egg-based production isn’t great in a pinch, and relying on it could be particularly deadly in the case of a wildfire flu pandemic, which would be far worse than what the country is experiencing now. After the 2006-07 bird flu scare and the 2009 swine flu pandemic, experts recommended an overhaul, which the Obama administration has quietly begun. A White House panel found that it took 38 weeks in the swine flu episode to produce enough doses for half the country. Shaving just a few weeks off that would have saved more than 2,000 lives. Using animal cells – such as those in dog kidneys – to produce flu vaccine is one technique that might make that difference. Another approach, known as recombinant-based vaccine production, could save yet more time. Last summer, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that it is investing $400 million in four facilities with the goal of building sufficient capacity to manufacture pandemic flu vaccine for a quarter of the country in four months, using both of those techniques. A new, cell-based, seasonal vaccine from Novartis also has just been approved. Making the country more resilient to biological threats should continue to be a national priority. And in the meantime, you would be forgiven for obsessively refreshing Google “Flu Trends.”

All-Canada Show helps outdoor lovers plan trips By NICOLE WESKERNA

nweskerna@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – Michael Vlasich has experienced some of his most memorable fishing excursions in Canada. It was at Red Lake in Ontario where he caught a 42inch, 24-pound great northern pike – a fish big enough to brag about for years. Vlasich, of Munster, Ind., was at the All-Canada Show on Saturday at Pheasant Run in St. Charles looking for a fishing outfitter to coordinate another trip to Canada. “I used to go [to Canada] a long time ago. I’m rekindling an old flame, so to speak,” he said. “It’s light there for 17 hours so you can fish all day.” Featuring more than 120 vendors, the All-Canada Show annually draws thousands of people who are interested in coordinating hunting and fishing trips. Some vendors offered comfortable resort atmospheres, while others offered a remote, rugged experience. Vlasich said he enjoys fishing in Canada because it gets him outdoors to enjoy nature. He said it’s common to see moose, bears and eagles there. Cabela’s had several displays of taxidermied wildlife, including two moose with locked antlers, fish and deer.

Nicole Weskerna – nweskerna@shawmedia.com

Terry Kelly and his son, Conor, 5, of Oak Forest look at a Cabela’s moose display Saturday at the All-Canada Show at Pheasant Run Resort and Convention Center in St. Charles. The Coffee family of Glendale Heights checked out mounted fish displays when they stopped by the show to plan a family vacation. Jamie Coffee said he has been to the show a handful of times, but his wife, Jennifer, and their son, Benjamin, 7, never have been there. Jamie Coffee said he looked forward to bringing his family along on a trip, possibly to Ontario. “I fish just about every-

where,” he said. “There’s no experience like fishing in Canada.” Vendor Debbie Alexander, manager for Thunderhook Fly-Ins, said some of her cli-

ents have caught as many as 100 walleye while fishing in northwestern Ontario. “There’s no road access. It’s really remote and beautiful,” she said. “You’re going

to catch a nice-sized fish.” That’s similar to the experiences Terry Kelly of Oak Forest has had when he’s traveled to Canada to fish. He said one of his most memorable trips was with his nephews, who never had been fishing in Canada. “There’s some amazing fish,” he said. “Last time I was there, we caught 100 walleye in one day and went through 12 dozen minnows.” Kelly said his favorite spot to fish in Canada is Wawang Lake in Graham, Ontario. He said he hopes his son, Conor, 5, will tag along on his next trip. Alexander said most people who are looking to travel to Canada are seeking remote areas where few, if any, other people fish. But she said there are other packages available that include canoeing and kayaking. She said the All-Canada Show, which tours five states, is popular in St. Charles. “It’s one of the most popular shows we do and one of the most highly attended,” she said. “It’s a really good show with a lot of guests. I love this show.”

Little time to spare for seniors By KEVIN DRULEY

kdruley@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – Matt Bowman and Matt Lindberg glanced at each other early in their sophomore years at Geneva. A few moments later, the childhood friends committed to one of their school’s newest sports on a whim. “Curiosity, you know,” Bowman said. “We weren’t really doing anything, so it was, ‘Hey. Join the bowling team?’ ” Now seniors, Bowman and Lindberg have nearly doubled their individual career-highs, served as two-year captains and given many an underclassman rides to and from St. Charles Bowl. Coming in, they thought they’d be encountering a slightly more sophisticated version of the Pepsi-and-hot-dog leagues of their youth. Going out? Well, let’s just say neither Viking is ready for that. Though they aren’t quite humming dirges at the lanes these days – how could you when there are pop songs and popcorn? – Bowman, Lindberg and fellow senior co-captain Kyle Kallhauge still know the score without glancing at the screen above them. Saturday’s St. Patrick Sectional at Habetler Bowl in Chicago might mark their final six games together. The top two teams advance to the IHSA State Meet at downstate St. Clair Bowl later this month, and the Habetler field includes Upstate Eight Conference co-champions St. Charles East and Lake Park. Geneva finished eighth in the nine-team league this season. Grinning, Vikings coach Jordan Zimberoff admits bowling is “not an adrenaline sport,” but that doesn’t exempt it from other slumps, struggles and inconsistencies found elsewhere in athletics. “We have a really good team, we just don’t really perform well at the same time, so that’s what we’re really hoping to find,” Lindberg said. “We all have very solid averages and we’re hoping to just really put it together for sectionals. The best way we can do that is just not let our season really get to our heads and just kind of bowl our best.”

More online Log on to kcchonicle.com/preps for a video of Geneva senior Matt Lindberg’s take on the 2012-13 Vikings. Geneva scored the secondhighest among teams in the afternoon session at the Lake Park Sectional last season. The Vikings finished seventh out of 13 teams, with Kallhauge’s 1,235, six-game series meriting consideration for a possible at-large invitation as an individual. A bowler since age 5, Kallhauge didn’t make the state cut. After joining the team as a junior – and not because he had Zimberoff as a history teacher – he’s at peace with whatever happens Saturday. Kallhauge, whose 280 highgame this season edges Bowman (279) and Lindberg (269), hopes his classmates are content with their finales, too, whether those come in Chicago or one week later. “Yeah, they’re probably more consistent than I am,” Kallhauge said. “I just bowl for fun, but since I’ve been bowling so long, it kind of works out

Zimberoff must choose five to bowl at sectionals, but the Vikings are accustomed to bigger number-crunching by now. The team, in its fourth season, had a program-high 23 bowlers try out for the varsity and JV, about 10 more than the girls team coached by Lisa Gillette. “We encourage anyone to try out. It’s always nice, especially since it’s rather new at Geneva, just getting new kids to try out,”

Lindberg said. “It is very fun, but it also is very competitive.” Years after his humble and casual beginnings, Lindberg has left highs around the 130s behind. Like many of his brethren, Lindberg owns his own bowling ball. He vows this weekend won’t be the last time he uses it. “I hear a lot of stories of when you’re going to college, you kind of stop all the sports you’ve been doing in high school,” Lindberg said. “I hope to continue on with bowling and learn a lot from what I’ve just gone through with this team.”

That’s more like it

Some tepid crowds early in the season prompted rumblings in Batavia that the Bulldogs’ well-respected homecourt advantage was in decline. Nothing like a home game with Geneva on a Friday night to reverse the trend. A packed house Friday – albeit one including a fair amount of visiting Geneva fans – supplied an excellent atmosphere for the game, and the Bulldogs responded with arguably their best performance of the season, a 22-point win against a Geneva team that came into the game with a 13-3 record. “That right there’s the atmosphere you dream of when you’re a kid growing up in Batavia,” Batavia senior forward Luke Horton said after the game. “Nick Fruendt out there, the court just packed. That’s what we had tonight, and it was really just exciting. The leaders of the student section did a really good job getting the word out on social networking. It was just a great contribution from the community, and that’s why Batavia’s so special.” The Bulldogs hope to keep the homecourt edge rolling. They continue their four-game homestand tonight against Elgin and will play another Upstate Eight Conference River home game next week against conference-leading Larkin. Bulldogs senior Jake Pollack also saluted Friday’s turnout. “That Batavia tradition … that’s where our energy comes from,” Pollack said.

Don’t forget about ‘D’

Losing leading scorer Kendall Stephens to a seasonending shoulder injury has been predictably challenging for St. Charles East, and not just on the offensive end. While Stephens’ high-end scoring ability is hard to replace, so, too, is his defense. The long-armed, 6-foot-5 wing proved especially effective this season playing at the point of East’s 1-3-1 defense. Stephens led the Saints with about three steals a game, and notched five steals against Stevenson on Dec. 27 before re-aggravating the shoulder injury in what turned out to be his final action with the Saints. “That’s potentially six points right there that we’re losing, and that’s just in steals,” East coach Pat Woods said. “And it’s a [defensive] presence, too. I think we have players who can bring a presence collectively like Kendall did – maybe not one as an individual, but collectively we can bring a presence. We’re

Tough to top

Wheaton Academy has taken several out-of-state trips in recent years during the school’s winter break, but the one the Warriors completed last week to North Carolina is setting the bar awfully high. Not only did the Warriors win both of their games on the trip, but they also conducted practices at the University of North Carolina, Davidson College and attended a home game at Duke against Wake Forest. “Every year, you try to out-do the previous year,” said Wheaton Academy coach Paul Ferguson, whose program has trekked in recent years to California,

Virginia, Florida and Texas. “This one’s going to be pretty tough to beat.” The Duke tickets came about because the father of Warriors sophomore Evan Williams, Weldon, played for the Blue Devils early in coach Mike Krzyzewski’s tenure. The practice in Chapel Hill, meanwhile, was enabled by Ferguson’s relationship with Tar Heels assistant coach Steve Robinson. Ferguson said he and Robinson got to know each other when Ferguson coached at Wheaton College. Back on the homefront, the Warriors are gearing up for a key clash Friday at St. Francis, the Warriors’ chief competition in the Suburban Christian Conference Blue Division. “They’re a very good team,” Ferguson said of the 11-2 Spartans. “They’re well-coached, play a very disciplined game. It’s going to be a tough game for us, but one that we’re looking forward to.” – Jay Schwab jschwab@shawmedia.com

Area teams blessed with talented youth Holiday gatherings dispersed weeks ago, and still no one seems to have excused the kids’ table. Talented youth has served the Chronicle-area girls basketball scene throughout the season, a theme that continued during both TriCities rivalry games over the weekend. On Friday, Batavia freshman center Hannah Frazier kept the Bulldogs close against Geneva with a 12point, 10-rebound effort. The next afternoon, St. Charles North sophomores Nicole Davidson and Sam Novak combined for 28 points, helping the North Stars upset Upstate Eight Conference River Division leader St. Charles East at home. Recently asked about her assimilation alongside Bulldogs freshman guard Bethany Orman, Frazier might as well have been speaking for the whole group of high-achieving underclassmen in these parts. “We don’t feel like veterans,” Frazier said, “but we’re definitely a lot more confident than the beginning because of all that’s going on.” With Batavia (4-3 UEC River) and Geneva (5-2) among the teams chasing East (7-1) in the conference, that comfort

QUICK READ Kevin Druley can only help during tense situations. While the Bulldogs and Vikings certainly feature several strong juniors and seniors on their respective rosters, having a complement of other options never hurts. Last winter, the Vikings welcomed Abby Novak, then a freshman, as a late-season callup. She fit right in, emerging during Geneva’s run to the 4A Hoffman Estates Sectional, and has continued her progression this season, even as lineup shuffling has taken her from the post to guard. “I’ve got my whole team to back me up,” Novak said, “so they’re all pushing for me to come through and play my best.” East showed similar support to sophomore guard Katie Claussner on Saturday, its bench erupting each time the left-hander delivered a basket or hustle play during an energetic first-half on the other side of the river.

Claussner’s seven first-half points helped the Saints lead by that many at the break. She scored five straight points in a 31-second span near the end of the half, after a tight-roping basket from the baseline with a three-point play on a putback. Saints coach Lori Drumtra deliberated over re-inserting Claussner in the final minutes of a 59-55 win, but her decision to stick with her veterans did not signal any overall reservations about Claussner. “She’s a good ballhandler, she can take it to the basket. She’s a lefty, which gives us a little bit different look,” Drumtra said. “I feel very confident with the ball in her hands, and she’s very good at the free-throw line.” Among Chronicle-area freshmen and sophomores, Claussner isn’t the only one. Still, the young guns arguably have reached their apex at the second-highest point in Kane County. Burlington Central is off to a 6-0 start in the Big Northern East behind a roster that includes seven freshmen and sophomores among 10 players. Barring any significant changes, North’s Feb. 5 visit to Rocket Hill to close the regular season will include just five just seniors out of 25 players dressed. That’s an easy enough fraction to reduce, even for the Algebra I set. See you at home: Friday’s Suburban Christian Conference clash with Wheaton Academy marks just the second home boys basketball game for St. Francis (11-2). The Spartans first – and last – laid eyes on the Spyglass Center in game action when they defeated Aurora Christian on Dec. 8. “It’s just one of those deals, you know,” St. Francis coach Bob Ward said. “Early in the season you’re playing a good number of games in tournaments. We’ll obviously play one whole round of conference games

at home, but we’re certainly top-heavy with the nonconference road games in the early season.” St. Francis plans to recognize all basketball alumni as part of its girls/ boys doubleheader with the Warriors, which begins at 6 p.m. An alumni mixer is set for The Bank Restaurant at 121 W. Front St. in downtown Wheaton after the games. Chief concerns: Peorians divide their baseball rooting interests between the Cubs, White Sox and St. Louis Cardinals. Fitting, then, that the recently announced 2013 field staff for their Midwest League Chiefs also has had multiple MLB personalities. Peoria, now a Cardinals affiliate after the Cubs moved from central Illinois to partner with the Cougars in September, features a pair of coaches with ties to both ends of the Interstate 55 series. Pitching coach Jason Simontacchi made most of his 96 major league appearances in the mid-2000s with the Cardinals before signing a minor league contract with the Cubs in 2006. He ended his career with the Washington Nationals a year later. Hitting coach Erik Pappas, a Mount Carmel alumnus, was a catcher with the Cubs and Cardinals in the early 1990s. Both are first-year coaches under manager Dan Bilardello, who could possibly be misconstrued as having Tri-Cities ties. While Bilardello did manage in Batavia the past three seasons, it wasn’t the City of Energy, but instead the burg in western New York with a short-season Cardinals affiliate. The Chiefs make their first 2013 visit to Fifth Third Bank Ballpark from April 21 to 23 before returning to Geneva three weeks later. Peoria also is scheduled to close the regular season in Kane County during Labor Day weekend.

Hilton, East get kicks against North By KEVIN DRULEY

kdruley@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – Amanda Hilton balances St. Charles East girls basketball with offseason club soccer workouts for Strikers Fox Valley each winter. Her efforts Saturday proved to be an extension of time-management skills, as the Saints’ junior point guard naturally fused both sports together. Hilton weaved quickly and aggressively through St. Charles North’s press and half-court defense, keying a 59-55 Upstate Eight Conference River Division road win. As the game tightened down the stretch, the only part of her soccer instincts she abandoned was the illegal use of her hands, finishing 12 of 14 from the foul line to highlight a 26-point game. “Speed and control, for sure, are in both,” said Hilton, who doubles as a midfielder and recently committed to the Nebraska women’s soccer team. “And plus, tough situations where it’s high pressure, a lot of that comes into soccer, too.” Hilton handled the final tense moment of the afternoon, splitting a pair of free throws with 7.8 seconds remaining to provide the final margin. East (12-9, 7-1 UEC River) grabbed sole possession of the conference lead with its third straight win in the crosstown series. Streamwood, idle until next weekend, is the league’s only other one-loss team. The North Stars (5-15, 2-6) countered the Saints’ hustle with their own added energy. Told East coach Lori Drumtra

had applauded North’s strides since the Saints’ 15-point home victory last month, the North Stars’ Alex Silverman couldn’t help but agree. While sophomores Nicole Davidson (18 points) and Sam Novak (10) joined Silverman (19) in double figures, North still derived much of its urgency from Silverman’s fellow seniors. Lauren Durocher and Ava Tarka are the others on an underclassmen-heavy bunch. “It’s the last East rivalry game for a lot of girls on the team this year, and they want to come out and win their last one,” Silverman said. “We were a little short, but we did everything we could, and I’m proud of how we played.” North chopped away at a 32-25 deficit at the break, seizing a 42-40 lead in the opening minute of the fourth quarter on a Novak 3 from the left wing. Hilton answered with a 3 moments later. It was her first field goal of the half. The Saints started attacking the basket once North went over the foul limit with 50.8 seconds to go in the third quarter. “More layups, less outside shots, less 3s,” East senior forward Laney Deckrow said. “Play smarter.” The Saints converted 22 of 31 free throws (70.9 percent), a success rate that helped offset North’s four 3s. Silverman provided the last one, hitting a long 3 to draw the North Stars within three, 58-55. “We’re down, it’s a rivalry game, anything can happen. We just wanted

BOYS BaSKETBaLL: NaPERVILLE NORTh 63, STc EaST 59

to get back in the game,” Silverman said. “Good thing Nicole Davidson and Morgan Rosencrants set two good screens for me to get the 3 up without any pressure, so it was good. Luckily, it went in.” Unfortunately for North, Hilton was handling the ball. She took the inbounds pass and immediately darted past three North Stars. Hilton crossed midcourt and button-hooked to take more time off the clock. North finally caught up to her and fouled with 7.8 seconds left. With East in the double-bonus, Hilton missed her first free throw but recovered to make the second. “That’s kind of how the momentum kept going,” Hilton said. “We kept making free throws and driving.” North dribbled to East’s baseline but did not attempt a shot before time expired. Deckrow followed Hilton with 10 points for the Saints. Carly Pottle – also a forward during soccer season – had eight. Sophomore guard Katie Claussner scored each of her seven points in the first half, giving North Stars defenders a different look as a speedy left-handed ballhandler. Still, the Saints pointed to Hilton as their difference-maker. A night after scoring 13 points in limited minutes in an easy win at Larkin, Hilton treated Saturday like any other day on her winter sports calendar. “Just her talent. Just her talent in general,” Deckrow said. “She knows how to use the ball, knows how to pass. And her strategy, too.”

STC East can’t hold momentum North surges past Streamwood By DENNIS D. JacOBS

editorial@kchronicle.com

NAPERVILLE – Points at the beginning of a game count the same as points at the end, a fact that tripped up the St. Charles East boys basketball team Saturday night at the Naperville North Shootout. After a lackluster start against the host Huskies, the Saints rallied from a 10-point deficit at the start of the fourth quarter to take a twopoint lead with four minutes to play. The Saints simply couldn’t maintain their momentum down the stretch in a 63-59 defeat. “We did not play hard enough from the beginning,” East coach Pat Woods said. “We weren’t ready to

play once again. … I don’t know if we’re thinking we’re better than we are in the locker room or what.” Woods was asked if the Saints (10-7) still were searching for an identity after the loss of star Kendall Stephens for the season with a shoulder injury. “No doubt,” Woods responded. “We’re still trying to find our way and we haven’t yet. Hopefully we will by next Friday when we play St. Charles North.” East is 2-3 without Stephens and his nearly 20 points a game average, and is still searching for players to pick up some of that scoring slack. Sophomore guard Cole Gentry did his part against the Huskies (10-6), scoring a career-high 31 points.

editorial@kcchronicle.com ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles North boys basketball team got a huge shot in the arm from its bench Saturday and turned it into a 73-38 victory against Streamwood in Upstate Eight Conference River Division action. Led by sophomore reserves Jake Ludwig and Jack Callaghan, as well as senior bench player Ryan Thomas, the North Stars (10-6, 4-2 UEC River) outscored the Sabres (6-11, 1-5), 20-6, during the second quarter. The run swelled a 16-14 lead into a 36-20 advantage. Ludwig scored five points, Callaghan three and Thomas two during the quarter. And in the first quarter,

junior Erik Miller came off the bench to score five points. “This was a good game for us to break out because we want to start peaking for the state tournament,” Ludwig said. “We technically have a first and second team, but we all play together. “It is a competition in practice each day. We are all practicing hard to get better and earn more minutes.” North coach Tom Poulin said the lift from the bench was huge, especially after he pointed the finger at himself for how the unit was used during Tuesday’s loss at Bartlett. “Ikeeptalkingabouthowmuchdepth we have, but in the second half against Bartlett, I should have gone to our bench to re-energize us,” Poulin said. “I didn’t do that, and I regretted it.”

Hawks hope Rockford stint pays dividends By TOM MUSIck

tmusick@shawmedia.com CHICAGO – Several hours after what turned out to be his final game with the Rockford IceHogs, Nick Leddy woke up to go to the bathroom. Leddy’s phone was filled with overnight text messages: The NHL lockout had ended. Despite returning to bed, the typically low-key Leddy couldn’t get back to sleep. “My mind started going,” Leddy said with a smile Monday. Not only was Leddy about to return to the Blackhawks as an up-and-coming defen-

seman, he was about to say goodbye (again) to the minor leagues. Think of them as The Rockford Eight. As other Hawks players picked up paychecks in Europe or trained near their homes, Leddy and more than a half-dozen of his teammates spent the bulk of the 113-day lockout assigned to the Blackhawks’ minorleague affiliate in the American Hockey League. Besides Leddy, the group included young Hawks players Andrew Shaw, Jimmy Hayes, Marcus Kruger and Brandon Bollig. Skilled forward prospects Brandon

Saad and Brandon Pirri were part of the contingent, as was young defenseman Ryan Stanton. Instead of boarding charter flights to big-league cities such as Los Angeles and Vancouver, the group traveled by bus to take on AHL opponents such as the Grand Rapids Griffins and the Lake Erie Monsters. Surely, they were jealous of teammates in Sweden and Austria and elsewhere. “No,” said Bollig, a happygo-lucky enforcer who tallied 157 penalty minutes in 35 games with the IceHogs. “I had no complaints playing

in Rockford. I loved it, actually.” Loved it? Really? Maybe Leddy would rip on Rockford after playing 128 games in the NHL. “You’ve just got to get reused to some things,” Leddy said. “It was great to be down there with all of those guys. Most of them are really good friends.” OK, fine. What about the lack of five-star hotels? “It’s not too bad,” Saad said. “We’re usually staying at Marriotts.” Divas, these guys are not. Of course, life in the AHL required some adjustments.

The Hawks typically arrive by plane the day before a road game, but that was not the case with the IceHogs. Leddy offered an example of a minor-league game day. “Say we were going to Peoria,” Leddy said. “That’s a 2½-hour bus ride. So we’d leave at say, 2, get there at 4 or 4:30, and then you’ve got to play the game [at night]. “Obviously, you’ve got to adapt. That was one of the bigger changes for me.” During his travels, Leddy came to appreciate the Illinois landscape. “Yeah, definitely,” Leddy said with a laugh. “It’s flat.”

KOVELS:

ANTIQUES AND COLLECTING

BY TERRY KOVEL KOVELS.COM

Mission style, often called “Arts and Crafts,” was first popular in the early 1900s. Heavy wooden Mission furniture made of dark finished oak was introduced by Gustav Stickley. It was soon copied by many other firms. The style, displayed in furniture as well as other decorative arts, is somber. Instead of bright colors, textiles and pottery were made in a gray-green or dull dark blue. Silver was considered too bright, so many metal ashtrays, bowls and even cabinet hinges were made of oxidized copper. And a few well-to-do people living with this very modern 1910 style even covered their telephone with hammered copper so it would match their other pieces. The Roycroft community in East Aurora, N.Y., made many useful and attractive crafts. They did book binding and printing, and produced copper work, leatherwork and, of course, furniture. A copper-coated Bakelite telephone was made in the candlestick shape used at the time. It was manufactured by American Bell Telephone Co. but was enhanced by Roycroft with a handmade “skin” of copper. Both Roycroft and American Bell marked the phone. One sold this year for $10,625. *** Q: Several years ago, my aunt gave me a sofa she said came from the Hollenden Hotel in downtown Cleveland. Her husband was doing some plaster and remodeling work at the hotel in the 1940s and brought the furniture home because they were throwing it out. The sofa looks like

it dates from the 1930s. There is a metal plate on it that reads “Jamestown Lounge Company.” Can you tell me the history and value of this furniture? A: Jamestown Lounge Co. was founded in Jamestown, N.Y., by Lynn Cornell, Theodore Hanchett and Hurlburt Phillips in 1888. The company made upholstered furniture and was known for its line of “Feudal Oak,” introduced in 1928. Pieces were made from oak trees that grew near Jamestown. The furniture was machine-carved and early pieces were heavily distressed. The factory closed in 1983. The Hollenden Hotel was built in 1885 and demolished in 1962. Value of your 1930s sofa: about $250. *** Q: I own a Puss ‘n Boots cookie jar, creamer and salt and pepper shaker set that belonged to my mother. What is the value of the set? A: Your Puss ‘n Boots pieces were made by Shawnee Pottery, which was in business in Zanesville, Ohio, from 1937 to 1961. It made cookie jars, dinnerware, flowerpots, lamps, planters, vases and novelty ware. Puss ‘n Boots pieces were made beginning in 1945. A set like yours sold at auction in 2011 for $115. *** Q: I have three pairs of men’s underwear with a neck label that reads “Babe Ruth” in red. They are in a box printed with the word “Sealpax” on the top and also “Step Thru-Button Two” and “A new one free - if this one rips.” The boxed underwear came from

my dad’s family’s general store a long time ago. Are they of any value? A: Sealpax was a trade name registered by the Rubin-Meltzer Corp. of New York in 1915. The company made underwear, robes and pajamas. We found 1926-1930 newspaper ads for Sealpax’s Babe Ruth underwear. Babe Ruth set a record for the most home runs in a season in 1927 and was one of the first five players inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936. He was one of the era’s most popular sports figures and his name was used to promote many different products. Sealpax’s slogan, “Step Thru-Button Two,” was used on union suits, a type of one-piece long underwear. Ruth’s name also was used to advertise other underwear brands. A box of Babe Ruth underwear sold for more than $500 a couple of years ago. ***

A: When Ponca City decided to erect a statue to honor pioneer women, several sculptors were invited to submit small models of their designs, which were exhibited nationwide and voted on by the public. The statue chosen was designed by Bryant Baker. The 17foot bronze statue was unveiled on April 22, 1930. Jennings Brothers Foundry of Bridgeport, Conn., made pot-metal replicas of the statue and marked them with

My mother-in-law bought a small copy of the statue that day, and we have inherited it. I recently saw a picture of two small “Pioneer Woman” statues and discovered they are actually bookends. I’m sure my motherin-law would have bought two if she had known. I was told the little statue might be worth a lot of money, but finding out it is a bookend dashed those thoughts. The statue is 8 1/2 inches tall and is marked “BB” behind the boy’s foot and “JB” on the back. Can you tell me what it’s worth?

1948’s ‘Letter’ still a top tearjerker By PETEr rAinEr Bloomberg News

Forget “Waterloo Bridge” and “Stella Dallas” and “The Magnificent Obsession.” You can keep “Johnny Belinda” and “Beaches.” For me, the greatest tearjerker ever made is Max Ophuls’s “Letter From an Unknown Woman.” It does everything a four-hankie movie should do, without making you feel like a blubbering idiot. It’s so beautifully conceived and deeply felt that it both fulfills the weepie genre and transcends it. Out on DVD from Olive Films, Ophuls’s 1948 movie was adapted from a Stefan Zweig novella set in early 1900’s Vienna. Joan Fontaine stars as Lisa Brandle, whom we first see as a moony teenager entranced by her new neighbor, the matinee-idolish concert pianist Stefan Brand. (His specialty etude is Liszt’s “Un Sospiro,” dubbed on the soundtrack by Jakob Gimpel). Louis Jourdan, with his square-cut features and brilliantined black hair, plays Stefan with maximum continental ooze. Once he sets his sights on Lisa, the girl’s a goner. What separates “Letter” from so many other love-is-blind sobfests is that with the utmost poignancy, Ophuls makes us feel the woman’s ga-ga yearnings in our bones. It all starts out well for Lisa but, after a whirlwind romance in which Stefan acts genuinely smitten around her — the hallmark of this world-class cad — he drops her. She bears his child in secret and ends up in a loveless marriage to a

Olive Films photo

Joan Fontaine looks adoringly at Louis Jourdan in “Letter From an Unknown Woman,” a 1948 tearjerker now out on dVd. wealthy suitor. Then she spots Stefan 10 years later at the opera and everything comes around again. Advancing on her as fresh prey, he doesn’t even recognize her. It all ends gloriously badly. Ophuls, born Max Oppenheimer in Germany, was one of the great film artists. Unlike most European directors who fled to Hollywood during the war, he actually thrived there, though not right away. He became entangled with Howard Hughes on a misbegotten project called “Vendetta” (Hughes dropped him several days into the shooting), and a costume picture with Douglas Fairbanks Jr., “The Exile” (1947), is lumber-

ing. But “Letter From an Unknown Woman” has the lush lyricism of some of his early German films, like “Liebelei” (1933), which has a similar setting. Ophuls was fortunate in having a relatively free hand on the film, due in no small part to the ministrations of his producer, John Houseman. The screenplay by Howard Koch, who, like Houseman, had enjoyed celebrated collaborations with Orson Welles, perfectly serves Ophuls hyperromanticism. Ophuls’s languorous camera moves are his signature; they express the persistence, and transience, of desire. Later on, in the 1950s, after he moved to France, this style came to

fruition in his masterpiece “The Earrings of Madame de ... ,” starring Danielle Darrieux, Charles Boyer and Vittorio De Sica, each in the greatest performances they ever gave. If Ophuls had remained in Hollywood, it’s likely he would have enjoyed a success similar to, say, Fritz Lang’s. Both “Caught,” featuring Robert Ryan in a lethal portrayal based on Hughes, and the suspense melodrama “The Reckless Moment,” both starring James Mason, are first-rate. He died young, at 55, while directing a movie in France about Modigliani. His son Marcel grew up to become the great documentarian who made “The Sorrow and the Pity.”


DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips go with you, go without him. P.S. It appears Arlene has an agenda of her own – and Byron may be one of the items on it. You’d be wise to delete her from your list of friends. Dear Abby: I have always been touched by the acts-of-kindness stories in your column. When I was 20, I went into New York City to attend classes. Upon my arrival, I was mugged in the bus station. It was rush hour, and I was too scared to scream. After the mugger ran off, I picked up the few belongings that had fallen out of my handbag, walked across the street and down the stairs to the subway. It was then I realized I had no money to buy a token. I started crying and couldn’t

stop. A middle-aged woman with a friendly smile arrived and stayed at my side until the authorities arrived. She calmed me down and wouldn’t leave until she knew I was in safe hands. Before she left, she slipped some money into my pocket. After Sept. 11, I heard people say how “surprised” they were that New Yorkers “came together.” Not me, Abby. I have known since the day I was mugged that there are only a few bad apples in the Big Apple. I hope my good Samaritan will see your column and realize what her compassion and generosity meant to me that day and ever since. – Still Commuting in NYC Dear Still Commuting: Thanks for an upper of a letter, which proves that kindheartedness is universal – and not limited to any one area of the map. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Natural sleep aids don’t appear to do much good

Dear Doctor K: I’m a woman in my 60s who struggles with insomnia. A friend recommended melatonin. What do you think of this and other natural sleep aids? Dear Reader: Many of my patients have trouble with insomnia. Now and then, so do I. There are different types of sleep problems, each treated differently. People can have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep or waking up tired. Like you, some of my patients are interested in natural sleep remedies. The most commonly used herbal sleep aid is valerian root. Some studies suggest that valerian is mildly sedating and can help people fall asleep and improve their sleep quality. But the evidence is mixed. An analysis of multiple studies of valerian’s effect on sleep published in 2010 concluded that people fell asleep only about a minute sooner than with a sugar pill. There also is some risk of liver damage from valerian, and some women report headaches after using the herb. I’m not aware of good studies of the long-term use of valerian. Finally, the manufacture of herbal treatments, unlike conventional drugs, is not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Impurities have been found

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff in some herbal preparations that are available over-the-counter. For all these reasons, I don’t recommend valerian. Another popular natural sleep aid is the one you mentioned, melatonin, which is a hormone made in the brain. It influences body temperature, sleep and daily body rhythms (circadian rhythms). The question is whether melatonin taken as a pill can help with sleep. For most types of sleep problems, I don’t think melatonin has been shown in scientific studies to help sleep. Over-the-counter melatonin is sold as a food supplement in the United States, and like valerian, its manufacture is not regulated. One condition where melatonin may help sleep is in older adults. People over 60 with insomnia often have lower levels of nighttime melatonin (as measured in the urine) than those without insomnia. Some studies have found that such people may sleep better if they take melatonin supplements. I would check with a sleep special-

ist if you’re interested in pursuing this treatment. If melatonin and valerian root don’t help, you can try alternative approaches. However, their track record is less established. Acupressure appears promising. In acupressure, pressure is placed on acupuncture points without needles. Tai chi and yoga may help you fall asleep faster and improve your quality of sleep. Both have the added benefits of promoting mental relaxation as well as muscle relaxation. Meditation may help as a calming and relaxing technique as well. You can also try drinking a cup of chamomile tea before bed. This age-old home remedy appears to help people relax and become drowsy. Chamomile is both mild and safe. (But avoid it if you’re allergic to plants in the daisy family.) An excellent, short and inexpensive e-book about treatments for women battling insomnia is “Successful Sleep Strategies for Women” by Harvard Medical School’s Dr. Julia Schlam Edelman. You can learn more about this book at AskDoctorK.com.

are the same thing

Dr. Wallace: My boyfriend broke up with me because he wanted his “freedom.” But I had given him complete freedom. He could have done anything he wanted. My only stipulation was that he couldn’t have a roving eye. I think that’s being more than fair. We are both high school seniors. Well, it seems that his roving eye got the best of him because he started dating a new girl at our school. It really bothered me to see them at a school dance. At that moment, I decided that I really hate this guy and I wouldn’t feel sorry if bad things happened to him. His pride and joy is his souped-up Thunderbird. He becomes upset if the car so much as gets rained on and rents a garage for it from my best friend’s dad. I asked Julie to ask her dad if he would stop renting my ex-boyfriend the garage so that he would have to park his car in front of the apartment complex where he and his parents live. That way, rain wind and birds would pound his car, which would cause him to spend all his spare time keeping his car clean. That means he wouldn’t be able to spend a lot of time with his new love. My friend said she would not ask her dad to kick the car out of the garage because her dad wants the rental fee. I think my friend has let me down in a time of need. I like her, but things will never be the same between us. She thinks my request was stupid and spiteful. I don’t see it that way. I see it as revenge. What’s your opinion? – Nameless, Rochester, N.Y. Dear Nameless:

“Spite” and “revenge”

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace are the same thing – and both words describe emotionally unhealthy, futile behavior that usually boomerangs on the perpetrator. It is, indeed, stupid. In your case, you’ve damaged a friendship by trying to involve your best friend in a scheme to inflict petty punishment on your ex. Stop trying to think of ways to make your former boyfriend’s life miserable! If you don’t, the person who is guaranteed to be miserable is you. I suggest you stop feeling sorry for yourself and put your ex out of your mind. We all experience loss in our lives from time to time. This could be a learning experience. The best way to be happy is to start thinking about the welfare of others. Why not find a way to help people who lost everything in Hurricane Sandy. A call to your local Red Cross could be the beginning of the new you. Contact me again and let me know what you have done to help and how it made you feel good about yourself.

Dear Abby: Recently my husband, “Byron,” and I had an argument, and he took off in his truck. He didn’t return until after work the following day. He had he spent the night at our friend “Arlene’s” house. She is divorced and lives alone. Byron assures me “nothing happened” between them. I want to believe him, but ever since this incident, Arlene will not look me in the eye or speak to me. I love Byron and trusted him until now. It hurts to think that our marriage may be ruined over a stupid argument. I know he was intoxicated, but why did he choose to go to HER home? – Broken-hearted in Wyoming Dear Broken-hearted: He chose to go to her home (even drunk as a skunk) because he knew he would be welcomed. It’s also the reason Arlene can’t look you in the eye. Marriage counseling for you and Byron may help you put this to rest. If he refuses to

The abnormal play is hard to make

CELEBRITY CIPHER

William James, an eminent 18th- and 19th-century psychologist, said, “To study the abnormal is the best way of understanding the normal.” Today’s deal seems to contain a normal play, but is it time for an abnormal one? South is in three no-trump. West leads the diamond king. What should declarer do? South had seven top tricks: one spade, one heart, one diamond and four clubs. He saw that at least two more tricks would come from spades. And since he knew a Bath Coup when he saw one, he played his low diamond at trick one. However, East had correctly played his diamond three. And West knew that his partner would have thrown out the jack or ace if he had held it, or played a high spot card. So West cleverly shifted to the heart jack. This time, East encouraged enthusiastically with his nine. Declarer ducked, but West continued with the heart 10, and East accurately overtook with his queen. Now South could not succeed. If he had taken this trick, crossed to the dummy with a club, and tried the spade finesse, West would have won with his king and led his last heart to give the defenders one spade, four hearts and one diamond. And if South had ducked the second heart, East would have reverted to diamonds, giving the defense one spade, two hearts and four diamonds (unless declarer cashed his seven top tricks). South should have won the first trick, crossed to the dummy, and run the spade queen. Yes, the finesse would have lost, but declarer’s diamond jackfour would have been a stopper with West on lead.
