Kathie Dobrowolski of Somewhat Organic sells some healing lip balm to Barbara Sikorski at St. Mark’s Abundant Blessings Shop, Dine and Find on Saturday in St. Charles. Hundreds attended the event. Funds raised support the church’s missions projects.

Craft fair shares ‘Abundant Blessings’ Locals attend event at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in St. Charles By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – Business was busy Saturday at Kathie Dobrowolski’s booth for Something Organic, featuring soaps, scrubs and lip balms. Barbara Sikorski of South Elgin bought some healing lip balm, taking a quick personal break from her role as volunteer during the second annual Abundant Blessings Shop, Dine and Find at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in St. Charles. “Business has been very very good,” Dobrowolski said, as the scents of her hand-made soaps filled the air with the fragrance of patchouli, lavender, lemongrass and rosemary. Krista LaDieu of St. Charles and her daughter Hailey, 9, were

checking out the jewelry and charms at Origami Owl, another vendor at the craft show and luncheon. “There are so many cute charms for kids,” LaDieu, a vendor for Pampered Chef, said. This was the first time for Origami Owl, said Stephanie Artingstall, and she was glad she came. “It’s busy – steady busy,” said Artingstall, of Pingree Grove. “It’s a good show.” Not too big but varied and bustling as hundreds of church and community members came to buy floral arrangements, candles, knitted, crocheted and quilted items and jewelry, participate in the silent auction, eat lunch and win raffle prizes. Jody Wendt of Geneva, cochair of the event with Gerri Stevens of Sugar Grove, said this

was the second time the church has hosted the event. “We raised $6,000 last year, our first year, and it all goes to our missions projects,” Wendt said. Some of the vendors are church-related, such as the candles which support Soul Kitchen, a free community supper every fourth Tuesday that the church started in January, Wendt said. “We have over 300 guests every month,” she said. “Everything is homemade.” More than 50 flower arrangements were done by a half-dozen volunteers. One of them was going home with Herman Gruebner of Aurora, a church member. “It’s going to be the centerpiece for Thanksgiving,” Gruebner said.

Students help collect donations for tornado-stricken Ill. towns By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – After seeing the devastation caused to Illinois communities such as Washington, Coal City and Diamond because of recent tornadoes, Fox Valley Robotics and Batavia Robotics member Tommy Neidlein member knew he wanted to do something to help. “I just think it is important to help people in trouble,” the seventh-grade student from Oswego said. On Sunday, Tommy and fellow members from the Fox Valley Robotics and Batavia Robotics club were at Rotolo Middle School helping sort through donations dropped off for tornado victims. The group spent Saturday

and Sunday collecting bottled water, nonperishable food items, small toys and cash donations. Batavia High School freshman Nick Schuster was among those also helping. “I think that everybody should help a little bit and help them to make it possible to rebuild,” Schuster said. He believed the relief efforts fit in well with the club’s mission. “It’s all about building things up and fixing things for other people,” Schuster said. Rotolo Middle School seventh-grade student Kristin Wolford and eighth-grade student Stephen Mrenna were sorting through toys to make sure they were in good shape. “Most of them are in pretty good shape,” Stephen said.

Kristen was glad to be there. “It’s for a good cause,” she said. The effort was only one of several local collection efforts. On Saturday, members of the St. Charles Girls’ Softball Association were collecting donations at Langum Park in St. Charles. The supplies were delivered on Saturday to a Coal City dropoff point. The Northern Illinois Food Bank in Geneva continues to collect donations for tornado relief. Donations to the Northern Illinois Food Bank can be sent to 273 Dearborn Court, Geneva, IL 60134, or by calling 630443-6910. To donate via phone, text “FOOD” to 52000 to make a $10 donation on your phone bill.

CLASS 6A STATE SEMIFINALS: BATAVIA 38, ROCKFORD BOYLAN 6

Frozen treat: Bulldogs bash Boylan

Kane County Chronicle / KCChronicle.com • Monday, November 25, 2013

By JAY SCHWAB jschwab@shawmedia.com ROCKFORD – Playing an opponent that has lost only one game since the 2010 season began would give any football team pause. Yet after scrutinizing game film and comparing personnel, the Batavia football team arrived at frigid Titan Stadium on Saturday loving its chances to take down perennial 6A state power Rockford Boylan. The Bulldogs did just that – in astounding fashion. In a season filled with dominating performances, the Bulldogs arguably turned in their most dazzling showing, given the stakes and the opponent, clobbering Boylan, 38-6, in a 6A state semifinal. The Bulldogs will try to avenge their lone regular season loss against Richards in the state championship game at 1 p.m. Nov. 30 at Huskie Stadium in DeKalb. “We honored the tradition and history but what film study told our coaches is we should do well,” Batavia coach Dennis Piron said. “ … [The kids] said if we play our game today, we will win. If we play our game, they can not stop us. If we play our game, our defense will run them over. That’s what the kids were saying before we came out.” Normally known for its balanced offense, Batavia ran the ball 30 times in the first half while throwing only five passes, perhaps not surprising with the temperature in the low-20s and senior running back Anthony Scaccia belying his slight stature by consistently picking up tough yardage to extend drives. Scaccia handled a huge workload splendidly, rushing 41 times for 185 yards, and scoring all three of his touchdowns in the first half as the Bulldogs (12-1) gradually pulled away. Describing the 5-foot-7, 150-pounder’s fierce competitive spirit, Piron recalled Scaccia’s reaction to Batavia’s first-round playoff loss

Sandy Bressner – sbressner@shawmedia.com

Batavia’s Anthony Scaccia (right) carries the ball during its 38-6 IHSA Class 6A semifinal win over Rockford Boylan on Saturday in Rockford. to Downers Grove North last year, saying “It was like the kid was going to explode out of his skin, he was so upset.” Scaccia’s more common, on-field explosions were at a minimum Saturday, but he still found a way to carry the offense. His touchdown runs came from 2, 4 and 1 yards out, giving Batavia an 18-0 lead. “On this surface, he couldn’t even be himself today,” Piron said. “He was a power running back, guys, at 150 pounds. Power football. I mean, it was awesome.” If one play could be labeled a back-breaker for Boylan in such a rout, it was a 54-yard interception return for a touchdown by senior Rourke Mullins with 1:06 left in the first half. Mullins picked off Boylan quarterback Demry Croft and zig-zagged his way to the end zone for a 24-0 Bulldogs lead that stood up at halftime. Boylan (12-1) didn’t score until the last play of the game.

Batavia cornerback Michael Moffatt limited star Boylan receiver Brock Stull to one reception. Batavia senior defensive tackle Ryan Minniti called the Bulldogs’ defensive showing “beyond belief.” “Just got to give credit to our secondary,” Minniti said. “Rourke and Moffatt, Moffatt being all-state, Rourke’s just a beast out there, returning [the interception] for a touchdown. Got to give all the credit in the world to them.” Senior linebacker Anthony Thielk also had a banner afternoon for Batavia, notching an interception and recovering a botched punt snap by Boylan that gave the Bulldogs possession at the Titans’ 16yard line early in the second quarter. The Bulldogs were coming off a much tougher tussle with Lake Forest in the quarterfinals – Batavia prevailed, 19-14 – and Scaccia said that game paid dividends Saturday.

“I think [playing] Lake Forest really helped us because they have one of the best defenses in the state,” Scaccia said. “They prepared us well, and our scout team really helped us out. They went hard this week.” Batavia senior quarterback Micah Coffey went 7 for 11 passing for 211 yards, including a 32-yard TD pass to Moffatt in the third quarter and a 90-yard TD pass to Jordan Zwart for the Bulldogs’ final touchdown in the fourth quarter. Despite the harsh cold, the Bulldogs played turnover-free football, while snatching two interceptions and a fumble from Boylan in addition to profiting from the Titans’ blown punt snap. “It was pretty tough,” Croft said of the weather conditions. “I couldn’t really grip the ball too well. I lost feeling in my hand about the first quarter because I got tackled and a guy landed on it, but it’s all right.”

The victory returns Batavia to the 6A state championship game for the second time; Batavia lost to Normal in 2006 at the University of Illinois. “It’s an incredible feeling knowing that we’re back here, and this is the first time we’ve been back for a while,” Bulldogs senior safety Forrest Gilbertson said. “Back when I was a little kid, I was always thinking ‘Wow, what if I could make it that far,’ and now it’s here. It’s incredible.” Piron has presided over the program’s best three-year stretch in program history after taking the reins from his longtime mentor Mike Gaspari, who is now the Bulldogs’ offensive coordinator. Piron, who grew up in Batavia, said his love for Batavia and longstanding relationships on the coaching staff make the team’s success all the sweeter. “It couldn’t be any better for me,” Piron said. One more win might change his mind.

CLASS 3A STATE SEMIFINALS: STILLMAN VALLEY 28, AURORA CHRISTIAN 26

Eagles’ 3-peat bid upended By DENNIS D. JACOBS editorial@kcchronicle.com AURORA – There will be no three-peat for the Aurora Christian football team. Stillman Valley rallied from a 10-point second half deficit and scored the winning touchdown with 12.9 seconds left in the game to pull out a 28-26 victory in an IHSA Class 3A semifinal. “They’re a great football team,” Aurora Christian coach Don Beebe said. “They’re a great program. Nobody’s going to argue that point. They’re probably going to go get their fifth title in 16 years, so credit to them and the way they played. We just didn’t make plays when we had to make plays.” Beebe thought the Eagles (9-4) played fairly well defensively, and a case in point was Michael Zepeda’s third-quarter interception, which he returned 37 yards down the right sideline for a touchdown. That gave Aurora Christian a 17-7 lead. The Cardinals (11-2) turned the ball over on downs on their ensuing possession, giving the Eagles a chance to pad their lead, but Austin Bray’s fourth-down pass fell incomplete. “That was the whole difference in the game,” Beebe

said. “If we come away with seven there, it’s 24-7 and a different game. But you’ve got to give them credit. They stopped us. We didn’t make the play when we had to.” Bray completed 16 of 29 passes for 130 yards in frigid, breezy conditions. The gametime temperature was 20 degrees, with a wind chill in the single digits. Beebe was not about to use the conditions as an excuse or accept any suggestion that they favored Stillman Valley’s run-based offense. “It didn’t affect the game at all,” he said. “Not at all. No. Austin threw his butt off.” Bray threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Walgren in the first quarter and a 10-yard scoring strike to Legend Smith in the fourth quarter. Smith, a senior running back, ended his prep career with a tremendous effort, gaining 162 yards on 29 carries. His touchdown gave Aurora Christian a 26-21 lead with just 2:27 left in the fourth quarter. “I mean, we had it,” Smith said of the game. “It was right there. I gave it my all. We all gave it our all.” Smith plays both ways and he was on the field when Stillman Valley’s Zac Hare

scored the game-winning touchdown on a 3-yard run. Like many other Eagles, Smith thought Hare lost a fumble before crossing the goal line. “I was right there,” Smith said. “I saw the fumble.” Not surprisingly, the Cardinals saw things a bit differently. “I asked Zac if he got across and he said he did,” Stillman Valley quarterback Connor McNames said. “They were jamming up the box. They knew what was coming. Everybody knew what play we were going to run. They were keying off of Hare the whole game. Our line got big movement and that’s the key.” The Eagles limited Hare to 68 yards rushing on 21 carries, but the Cardinals made good use of a stable of other running backs, rolling up 230 yards on the ground on 57 attempts. Stillman Valley will meet St. Joseph-Ogden on Friday afternoon in the Class 3A championship game at Huskie Stadium in DeKalb. “We’ve been dreaming about this since we were all little kids,” McNames said. “We came out and we made goals at camp. This was one of our goals, to make it here, and we did it. We just kept fighting and it paid off.”

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips not babies anymore. I try to reach out to her, but she is cold and not responsive. What else can I do? – No Grandma In Austin, Texas Dear No Grandma: What does your husband think about this? Has his mother always been this way? Could the problem be that she dislikes you or is disappointed in her son? There is no way to force a connection on someone who is unwilling, and I’m not sure you would even want to. It appears your mother-in-law isn’t maternal and prefers her independence. I’m sorry that your feelings are hurt, but if you crave closeness with an older woman, you will have to look elsewhere to find it. Dear Abby: My family is having a Thanksgiving conundrum. My uncle and his wife have offered to host the holiday. My uncle hesitated about having it because he recently lost his job. My grandmother decided that each couple should chip in $50 to pay for the dinner. (The total amount will be $300.) We will all make and bring dishes with us as well. Their children are not being asked to pay anything. My grandmother thinks this is a good idea because it would cost us more than $50 to go out to dinner for Thanksgiving, but some of us think it’s odd that we’re being charged to attend our family’s dinner. No one else in the family is able or willing to host, so the only other option would be going to a restaurant. Any thoughts? – Turkey Troubles In Philadelphia Dear Turkey Troubles: Just this – pay up! And while you’re offering thanks at the dinner table, be grateful that the person in need of financial help this holiday season isn’t you. • Write Dear Abby at www.dearabby.com.

The Argyle Sweater

Dear Abby: I have been dating my boyfriend, “Jose,” for a year. Before that, we were friends for five years. Ever since I’ve known him, he and his half-sister, “Blanca,” have danced together at parties. We’re all in our mid-20s. They dance salsa, merengue and other styles of music together. I used to think it was cute, but now that Jose and I are a couple, I find it annoying and a little creepy. He says Blanca loves to dance and can’t always find good partners. She gets mad when he dances with me instead of her during her favorite songs. I told Jose he can dance only with me at the parties or only with her. Not both. I don’t want to share him, and honestly, people joke that it’s incestuous. How can I make him understand how much this bothers me? What can I say to his half-sister when she gives me the evil eye? My relationship with her is friendly, but it was better before I started dating her half-brother. – Takes Only Two To Tango Dear Takes Only Two: If you want to hang onto Jose, simmer down and be less heavy-handed. Dictating who he can dance with only makes you appear to be jealous, insecure and controlling. Because he and Blanca have danced together for so long, it’s understandable that she expects to dance with him. My advice is to be gracious and hold onto your temper, because if you don’t, your relationship with Blanca will no longer be friendly, and it could cost you your boyfriend. Dear Abby: My mother-inlaw is a good person, but she never wants to be around us or our children. She lives only 30 minutes away, has only one child (my husband) and has been widowed for more than five years. She has never called our house, didn’t visit when the kids were born and usually mails gift cards at birthdays and Christmas. My own mother died a few months ago. Our kids are almost 13 and 10, so they’re

Question, answer bidding advice

SOLUTION

CELEBRITY CIPHER

Frank Stewart, a syndicated columnist, has self-published “What’s Your Call?” Each of the 14 chapters starts with two pages of information about the bidding topic being discussed. Then there are numerous quiz questions on left-hand pages with the answers on the righthand pages. The material is based on Standard American. Stewart is not a supporter of two-over-one game-force, especially for irregular and inexperienced partnerships. Most advice is mainstream, but I did disagree with one answer. If you open one diamond, the next player overcalls three spades, and partner doubles, Stewart thinks that is for penalty. I believe the double should say that responder has too many points to pass, but has no better call available. Opener typically passes with a balanced hand or bids with distribution. In this deal from the book, who is to blame for reaching five spades? Over three spades, South had three choices: pass; four spades; or something else, which suggests a slam. Four clubs was a control-bid (cuebid). Next, North reasonably control-bid four diamonds, his club queen looking like a working card. Then South erred – he should have bid four spades, positively proclaiming that he had no heart control. North would have passed, and the deal would never have seen the light of day. The auction telegraphed the killing heart lead. East won with his ace and returned the suit. Later, East scored the diamond king to defeat five spades.
