Pet show brings more than cats and dogs By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – Deb Moreland, owner of Furry Friends Traveling Petting Zoo, brought many recognizable animals – including a goose, turtle and skunk – to the Chicago Pet Show this weekend, but the creature she kept on a leash routinely stumped visitors. “It’s called a Patagonian cavy,” she told them. “He’s a rodent from Argentina.” The exotic animal was among an assortment of creatures people could see at the two-day event, which ended Sunday afternoon at the Kane County Fairgrounds in St. Charles. Joe and Robyn Kovar brought their 2-year-old daughter, Lyra, to the pet show because, as the Geneva residents said, she loves animals. Which is her favorite? Both thought the girl liked dogs best. But, Robyn Kovar added, “the turtle seems to have won today.” The family had just finished meeting a 40-pound albino Burmese python named Daisy that was looped around Kris Friedenberger, a volunteer with Friends of Scales Reptile Rescue. “She’s heavy,” Friedenberger said. At 4 years old, she’s hardly done growing. Chris McKee, secretary of the group, said full-grown Burmese pythons can reach lengths of 19 feet and can weigh up to 250 pounds. Friends of Scales Reptile Rescue tries to educate people about what they are signing up for when they take various reptiles, such as snakes, in as pets,

Lemon Drop, an albino Burmese python weighing 100 pounds, greeted attendees of the Chicago Pet Show on Sunday at the Kane County Fairgrounds. Lemon Drop was brought by Friends of Scales Reptile Rescue. McKee said. He said factors that must be taken into consideration include cage size, temperature, lighting and feeding. “There’s a big responsibility there,” McKee said after explaining that a baby Burmese can grow to nearly 10 feet long in its first year. Those who wanted to leave the Chicago Pet Show with an animal could, as various groups offered pets for adoption. Saturday, for example, Open Doors Animal Rescue found homes for five

kittens, said Hillery Higginbotham, who founded the organization with her husband. Other organizations used the pet show as a way to promote themselves and network with other organizations. Such was the case for West ’Burb Wieners, a nonprofit that raises funds for the medical treatment of orphaned pets in shelter or rescue care, President Linda Conro said. She said the group also takes in dachshunds that have special needs or are elderly – those that others won’t take.

Shoppers delight in Mothers Club craft show By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – The line was long at 9 a.m. Saturday, as early birds were ready to go to the Mothers Club of Geneva’s 39th Annual Arts and Crafts Show, said club president Nikki Spitzer. “Great turnout today, steady streams of people,” Spitzer said of the club’s biggest fundraiser of the year, held at Geneva High School. “The line was out the door, almost to the parking lot. We see a lot of people leaving with lots of bags.” An estimated 1,000 shoppers attended. Spitzer said the goal is to raise at

least $20,000, with $10,000 earmarked for scholarships. With 107 crafters covering all types of arts – from knit and crocheted items to handmade bird feeders, stained glass to stuffed snowmen dolls, jewelry to quilts – many were in the market for unique gifts and holiday decorations. Shoppers were enthusiastic about their finds. Shannon Kelly of Batavia was completely taken by crafter Marti Schmidt’s Exploding Boxes. “It’s a box that you open the lid up and it ‘explodes’ into a picture album,” Kelly said, displaying how the sides of the box fall open into layers of small pages for photos.

“You can put pictures on each of these pages and write something in the middle about what was happening,” Kelly said. “You could pick a baby book one for grandma, one for an auto-show memory. It doesn’t take up much room, it’s cute, it’s very clever. I’ve never seen anything like it before.” Schmidt, a Naperville resident, said she developed the exploding boxes after taking a craft class several years ago. “We made something that looked similar to this and I made it my own,” Schmidt said. “I donate all my proceeds to the Purdue University Center for Cancer Research.”

Elburn Leo Club members and Girl Scouts sing to honor veterans Sunday at an event at the Elburn Lions Club.

Elburn Leos salute veterans By AL LAGATTOLLA alagattolla@shawmedia.com ELBURN – Sitting at a table surrounded by friends, in a room filled with colleagues and well-wishers, John Reece said he was feeling grateful Sunday afternoon. Reece, the commander of the Elburn American Legion, was at the clubhouse of the Elburn Lions Club for a Veterans Day-themed event, sponsored by the Elburn Leos, the youth arm of the Lions Club. On Saturday, Reece said the Legion had its own get-together. And Reece said he’ll look forward to Monday, which is Veterans Day, with a flag-raising event, to start at about 8:30 a.m. at John Stewart Elementary School, at 817 Prairie Valley St., Elburn, as well as an event that starts at 11 a.m. at the American Le-

gion building at 112 N. Main St., Elburn, and participants will march from there toward village hall on North Street. Also, he mentioned a Veterans Day concert at St. Charles North High School that has become an annual event. “It’s wonderful the way this community supports veterans and recognizes veterans,” Reece said. “It means so much more when it’s not just from the American Legion or the VFW.” Youths from the Elburn Leos worked as servers and made cards that were displayed at each table. It is the second consecutive year that such an event was held at the club in honor of veterans. The event began with an opening statement from James Lloyd, a retired Air Force technical sergeant who lives in Elburn. Lloyd pointed out a table setting that was

left empty, set for one, and pointed out the symbolism of that, including red roses, a reminder of the families soldiers left behind, as well as white as a symbol of the purity of their intentions. A microphone was passed around, and veterans were urged to speak. Also, local Girl Scouts and Leos members performed a medley of patriotic songs to close the event. Reece, a Desert Storm veteran, sat at a table with Korean War veteran Al Anderson and World War II veteran Jerry Lonigro. Reece said being a member of the Legion isn’t just about discussion of time of service. He said it is as much about fellowship and getting together. “We don’t talk about war stories,” he said. He added that the Legion has plans to become more

visible in the community, including a tree-lighting event during the Dec. 6 Christmas Stroll event. Giving back is something the group wants to do, he said, considering the outpouring of affection he

said members feel from Elburn. “It gives me a lot of joy to see how this community appreciates the veterans,” he said.

COACH SLY’S CORNER

Jeff Krage for Shaw Media

Batavia quarterback Micah Coffey (right) looks to throw the ball during a IHSA Class 6A second-round playoff game Saturday at Rolling Meadows. Batavia won, 48-13.

IHSA CLASS 6A: SECOND ROUND: BATAVIA 48, ROLLING MEADOWS 13

Bulldogs cruise into quarterfinals By DENNIS D. JACOBS editorial@kcchronicle.com ROLLING MEADOWS – The Batavia football playoff express just keeps rolling along. Saturday night, the Bulldogs rolled over Rolling Meadows in a Class 6A second round game, 48-13. Batavia senior quarterback Micah Coffey threw for 203 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He also ran for another score. “I’m really proud of our linemen tonight,” Coffey said. “They gave me enough time and then I’ve got tall guys to go get the ball.” One of those guys is 6-foot-1 senior Michael Moffatt, who made perhaps the play of the night for the Bulldogs in the second quarter. Batavia was leading 14-6 and facing a 4th-and-8 at the Rolling Meadows 27 when Coffey avoided a blitz and lofted a pass into the end zone for Moffat. The Mustang defender appeared to be in a better position to make a play on the ball, but Moffatt went up to take

it away from him. “I just jumped up,” Moffatt said. “I knew I could go vertical over him and then I just tipped it back to myself with one hand and luckily it came right down as I was falling right onto my body, so it was pretty cool.” That gave Batavia a 21-6 halftime lead. The Bulldogs (10-1) stretched their lead to 35-13 in the third quarter on a pair of touchdown runs by Anthony Scaccia, who had another impressive performance with 125 yards rushing on 21 carries. “We kind of shot ourselves in the foot a little bit in the first half, but I thought the second half we came out and really dominated the ball,” Coffey said. Coffey said the offense knew it was important to make every possession count because the Mustangs also had some offensive weapons. “They’ve got some skill guys over there,” he said. “I’ve got all the faith in the world in our defense, but obviously knowing they’ve got those skill guys – and they play both ways – it’s up to us to

try to gas them and help our defense out a little bit.” Some Bulldogs play both ways as well, including Moffatt, who came up with an interception early in the fourth quarter when Rolling Meadows (7-4) was driving and threatening to make things interesting. “On the slant, I passed it over to the safety, and right away from the quarterback’s release I could tell it was going to be high, so I stayed back a little bit and it went right to me,” Moffatt said. The Bulldogs also got a first-half sideline interception from Rourke Mullins, who somehow managed to stay in bounds while taking the ball away from the intended receiver. Batavia also came up with some key fourth-down stops to thwart the Mustangs’ high-powered spread offense. The victory sends Batavia into a quarterfinal match-up with Lake Forest (9-2), a 27-7 Friday victor over De La Salle. It will be a rematch of a second-round game won by the Bulldogs two years ago, 31-17.

Nice work once again by Batavia football on Saturday night. Now it gets serious for the Bulldogs. Beating DeKalb and moreso Rolling Meadows were nice playoff warm-ups for Batavia, but it’s about to get a lot tougher starting with Lake Forest in the quarters. Lake Forest is a very strong football team that has played a tough schedule. The Scouts have rolled through their first two playoff opponents, just like Batavia. Should be a great one at Bulldog Stadium on Saturday … maybe home field will make the difference. Aurora Christian has a road trip to Seneca on its hands but the Eagles look like they’re getting healthy/building momentum at the perfect time. This will be a tougher matchup than Oregon was, but it’s such a rough deal for 3A teams to have to try and figure out an offense like Aurora Christian’s with limited prep time. Looking to Sly like an ACS-Winnebago semifinal could be in the cards. Kaneland and Marmion football went down Saturday in very different ways, but each very sad in their own right. Marmion gave up a late TD and lost by a single point to old nemesis Prairie Ridge. Talk about a stinging defeat. Kaneland’s game wasn’t close but the Knights have their own woulda-coulda-shouldas, on the health front. The Knights weren’t anything close to full strength for this one. Still some fantastic work by Kaneland football this season, once again. Just a shame we didn’t get to see them at their best for that tough 5A draw. On the volleyball front, congrats to St. Francis on another state trip, and to Geneva on a historic season. Sly’s not telling you anything you don’t know, but look out for Geneva volleyball next year (and the next year … and the next year).


GIRLS VOLLEYBALL: CLASS 4A SUPERSECTIONAL: NEW TRIER 2, GENEVA 0 (25-19, 25-21)

5

By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – Geneva girls volleyball players quickly discovered something in cramming for Saturday’s Class 4A St. Charles East Supersectional against New Trier. The Trevians are teeming with NCAA Division I recruits. Two middles, two defensive specialists and a setter all

have committed to play major college volleyball. A right-side is a Northwestern softball recruit, too. Largely ignoring their opponents’ pedigree, the Vikings challenged New Trier throughout the night, but the Trevians ultimately prevailed with a 25-19, 25-21 sweep that gave the program a chance to build on last season’s runner-up finish. “They’re an amazing team,” Geneva senior middle Taylor

Marmitt said. “Their setter’s so good. All their hitters. Their middles are good, their outsides were smart. Everything about them. They played their game tonight.” Geneva (29-10) sensed it could reach this postseason round – and ideally beyond – for some time, even though the Vikings were a mere 48 hours removed from capturing the program’s first sectional title. Just three seniors – Mar-

FOOTBALL: IHSA CLASS 5A SECOND ROUND: JOLIET CATHOLIC 45, KANELAND 8

Knights lose quarterback, offensive lineman in first half By JAY SCHWAB jschwab@shawmedia.com JOLIET – Dealing with Michael Ivlow and Joliet Catholic was going to be difficult enough. Doing so with multiple key injuries made Saturday night’s showdown between Kaneland and Joliet Catholic a one-sided affair, as the Hilltoppers battered the Knights, 45-8, in an IHSA Class 5A second-round football playoff game at Joliet Memorial Stadium. Already playing without starting receiver Brandon Bishop – who was injured last week against Hampshire – the Knights lost three-year starting quarterback Drew David and offensive lineman/linebacker Sam Bower during the course of the first half. That doesn’t even take into account season-ending ACL injuries to star running back Jesse Balluff and starting lineman Zach Thielk earlier this season. “Unfortunately, when it rained it poured with the injuries,” Kaneland coach Tom Fedderly said. “With Bishop not being able to play, and then Drew and Bower. “Hats off to [Joliet Catholic], they did a really nice job, but I can’t say enough about my seniors. We love them,

and I can’t say enough about them.” With David in the game for the first quarter-plus, the Knights moved the ball into Joliet Catholic territory on three occasions. The results: a turnovers on downs, a punt and a missed field goal. Ivlow, meanwhile, had four rushing touchdowns in the first half as JCA led, 28-0, at the break. That included TD runs of 80 and 67 yards. He ran for 218 of his 222 yards in the first half while teammate Nick Borgra rushed for 141 yards on the night as the Hilltoppers clicked in their patented double-wing offense. “It’s funny because we’re more of a running team, and we seem to have the big plays in our running game,” JCA coach Dan Sharp said. Senior Ty Carlson came on at quarterback to replace David, who Fedderly said sustained a rib injury while taking a hit after a run early in the second quarter. Carlson completed 10 of 18 passes and led the Knights on a drive that ended with a 3-yard Nate Dyer touchdown run in the fourth quarter, but by then, the running clock was in effect. “I feel like turf is kind of a nightmare for us,” Dyer said. “That tends to be the playing field that we get hurt on. But

that’s what we strived for all year, get the second man in and keep playing hard.” Dyer said the Knights knew they faced a whopping challenge in a Joliet Catholic team that only has lost once this season, a one-point defeat to 7A playoff team St. Patrick. “We expected them to be a tough team. We expected them to make plays,” Dyer said. “You get sealed off the edge. We made some plays, they made more plays.” The loss bounces the Knights (9-2) from the 5A playoffs in the second round for the second straight season after consecutive state semifinal berths the two years prior. Sharp was proud of his team’s play but felt badly about Kaneland going down without its leader for most of the night. “He is one of the better athletes we’ve seen this year, just watching them on film and seeing them live last week,” Sharp said of David. “It was a shame that happened but that definitely I think took the wind out of their sails a little bit, losing a player of that caliber.” Joliet Catholic didn’t complete a pass all night but outrushed Kaneland, 391-88. The Hilltopers move on to a heavyweight quarterfinal next week at Montini.

and Loberg’s grade level, the novelty of the speedy varsity game wore off well before the persistent “SHE’S A FRESHMAN!” chants did. “I was very proud of our kids that they didn’t use that as a crutch all year – we’re young. And they didn’t get caught up in thinking, ‘Well, next year, we’re going to be great,’ ” Johnsen said. “They wanted to win today and keep playing.”

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips variations to the traditional turkey, enjoyed an awesome pie straight from the Renaissance, and learned that we will never again try oyster stuffing. Because the recipes are untried, no one feels bad if the dish isn’t perfect. Most important, we do it together and spend the day laughing, talking and catching up. Hope this will give other people ideas. – Scott In Baltimore Dear Scott: So do I, because your family has captured the true spirit of the holiday season, which is too often lost because of the pressure people put on themselves to achieve perfection. Dear Abby: My husband and his sister had a falling out after their parents died and haven’t spoken for a few years. My husband is very stubborn and holds grudges. He is very ill now. I have asked him if he wants to tell his sister about his illness, and he says no. I’m not sure how much longer he has left. I am thinking about going against his wishes and calling her in the hopes that they can make peace. Your thoughts? – Not Much Time Left

Dear Not Much Time Left:

Depending upon how deep the rift between them is, I do think you should make a confidential phone call and tell her it might be a good idea to call her brother. If she does, the conversation could be healing for both of them. However, if she chooses to ignore the situation, the choice will have been hers, and no harm will have been done. Dear Readers: Today, Veterans Day, I would like to thank not only all of you who have honorably served our country, but also those men and women who are on active duty for your service as well. I salute each and every one of you. – Abby • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

The Argyle Sweater

Dear Abby: My daughter “Jenny,” her husband, “Bob,” and their three dogs live with my husband and me in our home. We live on a fairly busy road. The dogs used to always be leashed when they were taken out. They have now made a habit of letting the dogs out without leashes. This frightens me. Not only am I concerned about one of the dogs getting hit by a car, but also any legal ramifications if they cause damage to others. I have spoken to my daughter about it, but nothing has changed. Abby, what can we do to make Jenny and Bob responsible for any damages incurred by their actions? One last note – one of their dogs WAS hit by a car and had a long, painful recovery with a very expensive vet bill. – Out Of Ideas In Connecticut Dear Out Of Ideas: You have a right to be concerned. Contact your attorney and your insurance broker to find out what the fallout could be for you as homeowners because of your daughter and son-inlaw’s laziness and carelessness. Responsible dog owners keep their pets leashed so they won’t be hurt by running into traffic or biting a child or an adult they don’t recognize as a friend. If your daughter and S.I.L. can’t abide by your wishes and behave responsibly, they shouldn’t be living under your roof. P.S. This isn’t just about the dogs and liability; it’s also about respect for you. Dear Abby: A couple of years ago, my extended family found a fun, all-inclusive solution to the grumbling (and expense) of preparing the holiday meal. Each family is assigned a portion of the meal they are going to prepare. For fun, it has to be a recipe that has never been tried before so no one can fret that it isn’t made like Grandma used to make it. The person holding the party coordinates kitchen time, but to be honest, everybody enjoys helping each other out, and the cooks spend most of their time chatting. We have tried wonderful

The best books of this year

SOLUTION

CELEBRITY CIPHER

As we approach the holiday season, let’s look at some of the books published this year that might appeal to the bridge players on your gift list. Some whodunits with a bridge theme have been written. The best so far, in my opinion, is “Death in Duplicate” by Carole Coplea (Master Point Press). Two deaths occur during a duplicate at Kensington College in the Adirondacks, and the book covers the investigation. Today’s diagram shows the only bridge deal in the book. If this layout occurred during, say, an 11-table duplicate, there would no doubt be 11 different auctions. Here, in particular, East’s double was bizarre after hearing her partner raise diamonds. Note that East would have made five diamonds if she had guessed spades correctly. After West led a low heart, South, a student at the college, called for dummy’s 10, and East ruffed. She then cashed the spade ace: six, three, five. East, not guessing that the three was West’s top spade spot, shifted to a diamond. Declarer won with his ace and ran all of his trumps, bringing everyone down to three cards. North had the heart acequeen-jack and South the spade queen-nine and heart three. But what could West keep? He was squeezed. Seeing the need to retain three hearts, West was forced to discard the spade king, hoping his partner had the queen. South now produced that card and claimed his contract for plus 550 and a top. Master Point Press books are available from the publisher in printed and e-book editions.
