Geneva eyes $4.71M levy request By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Geneva aldermen this week unanimously approved the city’s 2013 tax levy request of $4.71 million, a 2 percent increase over last year’s $4.6 million levy request. The levy is what taxing bodies request that the county collect through property taxes next year, based on how much money officials calculate they need. The 2013 taxable equalized assessed valuation is $901 million, a 3.87 percent reduction from $937 million the previous year, officials said. The EAV reduction reflects a continuing decline in real estate values, officials said. New construction represents $2.72 million or 0.29 percent of the EAV. Resident Bob McQuillan, a co-founder of TAXFacts, a taxpayer watchdog group,

asked aldermen to approve a zero percent levy. “This is the fifth year in a row where the EAV has declined,” McQuillan said. “We don’t know when that’s going to end ... we’re probably looking at 2017 before we see an increase in assessed value, in my opinion.” McQuillan asked aldermen to consider that the city is one of six taxing bodies – all approving levies for next year’s tax collections. “You can’t look at yourself in a bubble and say, ‘Well, 50 bucks isn’t bad ... we’re doing a good job,’ ” McQuillan said. “This is the time when we go and give the homeowners a break.” The levy request includes a 2.76 percent increase in the debt service levy because of an increase of $48,060 in the city’s annual debt payments. The debt service levy is not subject to the state’s tax cap law. The city’s debt obligation

What Geneva is asking for: $4,709,208: Geneva’s proposed 2013 tax levy request. This is the amount the city can opt to increase, decrease or hold flat. This part of the tax levy request is limited by state law to the rate of inflation or 5 percent, whichever is less. $1,789,031: Amount of money required to pay debt from bonds the city has issued. $6,498,239: Total amount the city will request in its 2013 property tax levy. This is 2.21 percent higher than the 2012 levy. How it affects tax rates: 2012 rate: 0.678332 Estimated 2013 rate: 0.721197 (6.32 percent higher). This would boost the tax bill for a house with a market value of $250,000 by $35. of $1.8 million is based on general obligation bonds issued in 1999, 2006, 2008 and

2012, records show. The debt service increases the levy request to 2.21 percent and increases the total request to $6.5 million. The levy request will cause the city’s tax rate to increase, officials said. The 2012 rate is 0.678332, including the debt service. The higher rate is estimated to be 0.721197 or 6.32 percent more, officials said. The estimated tax rate increase would hike the taxes for a house with a fair market value of $250,000 by $35. For a house with a fair market value of $350,000, the increase would be about $50, officials said. The final levy ordinance will be presented to the committee of the whole on Dec. 9 and final approval is expected at the City Council meeting on Dec. 16. The actual levy amount might be lowered when the city’s true EAV is known by March.

Fishermen’s Inn will start small Blackberry Township business to reopen with weddings By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com BLACKBERRY TOWNSHIP – The new owners of Fishermen’s Inn have spent the last year restoring the grounds and the buildings, and their goal is for the historic restaurant to open in stages. Mark and Patricia Southern of Big Rock Township bought the restaurant and banquet hall in October 2012. Fishermen’s Inn, at 43W901 Main Street Road, just west of Route 47, had closed in December 2009 after being in business for 40 years.

The restaurant’s former owner, the late Ralph Schleifer, was Patricia’s great-uncle. “We’ve had it a year, and we are working through the process of understanding the potential,” Mark Southern said. “At this point, it’s just not feasible – based on our experience – to pull out a full a la cart restaurant.” Instead, the business will focus on weddings, and they’ve had 30 booked so far, with the first one set for April 12, he said. And they will do one wedding at a time before developing other events, he said.

“We want to do that right, one event at a time,” Southern said. “The first step will be the banquet wedding facility, then we graduate and move on. That is our process. We just have to be smart. ... The restaurant business is a tough business, and we do not want to get it started and have a short life. Our goal is to make it a cornerstone of Kane County.” That said, perhaps as soon as the middle of 2014, the inn will be able to host the public on various indoor-outdoor patios and with small plates of appetizers and drinks, he said.

“It’s just such a big animal, a very large building and a very large undertaking,” Southern said. “We want this to be successful. We are putting our heart and soul into making it that.” The next step would be to host parties open to the public by reservations, a concept that would keep pricing down and control waste. “We intend on having public events and dinners for special events – parties where the public is invited, requiring reservations,” Southern said. “A plated meal or a buffet ... it could be a local country meal using beef and veggies from local farms ... or a seafood night with fresh seafood flown in.”

Prison diversion program to be studied By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon knows from internal review and anecdotal evidence that the diversion programs offered through his office work. But, he told reporters gathered Tuesday for a monthly briefing, eventually those ideas need to be tested. By early next year, McMahon said, the State’s Attorney’s Office should know how effective – or ineffective – the original of the five diversion programs is. It is partnering with Aurora University and the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority to study the recidivism rate among participants. “I want some outside eyes looking at this,” McMahon

said. The agencies will evaluate the diversion program for felony nonviolent firsttime offenders, McMahon said. Crimes that fall into that category, he said, include retail theft, forgery, Joe burglary, deMcMahon Kane County ceptive practices, credit State’s card fraud and Attorney criminal damage to property. The goal of the diversion program is to hold people accountable for their conduct and to modify behavior so the criminal activity is a “oneand-done” event in their life, McMahon said. Of the 1,071 people who participated in the program

between 2005 and 2010, a random sample of 317 will be studied, McMahon said. In addition to evaluating the participants’ performance in the diversion program, McMahon said, the agencies will look at their behavior in the three years following completion. Convictions will be measured. “Have they re-offended?” he said. The results should be available early next year, McMahon said. The findings could be used to modify the program, he said, noting they might indicate a need for more intensive counseling or community service. In other news, the State’s Attorney’s Office is planning a no-refusal operation for

Nov. 27. No-refusal operations are designed to expedite the booking process for those charged with driving under the influence. During a no-refusal event, police work with an assistant state’s attorney to quickly obtain a search warrant to compel a DUI suspect to submit a blood alcohol level test. This will be the second year a no-refusal event will be held the day before Thanksgiving, McMahon said. He said 17 agencies in Kane County participated in last year’s operation, which netted 14 DUI charges. “That is a significant number,” he said. “It’s a good reason why we should do this again.”

meeting. But board member Jeff Walter wanted to explore the amount requested. “We’ve had no discussion at all,” Walter said. “It seems to me, it’s, ‘Here’s the number, guys. Let’s vote on it.’ ” He said the process seemed different than last year, but Village President Dave Anderson said that was not so. But the issue came up at the committee of the whole meeting that followed the Village Board meeting, and Walter asked whether meeting less often was effective. The board had been scheduling Village Board meetings and committee of the whole meetings on alternating weeks, but a few months ago switched to a format in which the committee meetings are held after the board meetings. “I’m not feeling we are in

“We’ve had no discussion at all. It seems to me, it’s, ‘Here’s the number, guys. Let’s vote on it.’ ” Jeff Walter Elburn board member the loop,” Walter said. It was a theme that ran through other discussions Monday night. Board members, for instance, balked at an update for the employee manual that addressed social media. Some trustees wondered whether they would be included in a rule that would prohibit village employees from identifying that they work for the village on platforms such as Facebook and LinkedIn. But some said it is vital that they communicate

and network in that way, especially during election season. Village attorney Bob Britz pointed out that social media policies are becoming the norm, but board member Dave Gualdoni said such policies can be a “nightmare.” Walter said it would prevent people from posting positive things that happen in the community, but Britz said the policy is “to control the not-so-positive things.” Another issue cropped up concerning whether to charge organizations for having the police help out at events. Anderson and Village Administrator Erin Willret encouraged trustees to communicate with staff members, and Anderson noted that he was at Village Hall every day, available to residents.

ELBURN – Village leaders approved plans Monday night for a public hearing on a proposed property tax levy, setting the time and date for 6:45 p.m. Dec. 2 at Village Hall, 301 E. North St., Elburn. Although that vote was unanimous, there was much discussion on several topics that ultimately brought up a question that board officials now are looking to explore – should the village go back to meeting four times a month, rather than twice a month. The tax issue was a matter of the village’s request for a levy of $824,000, an amount officials said they ultimately did not expect to receive. Because it is more than 105 percent of the 2012 levy of $695,001.69, a hearing is required at the first December

“That’s great … but we’re not,” Gualdoni said. “This has to be discussed by all of us, at this table.” Walter and Gualdoni said they would want to meet more often during the fall months, acknowledging that meeting twice a month in the summer might make sense. Trustee Bill Grabarek said he could see both sides of the issue, but he said he could see the advantages to meeting four times in a month. Board members acknowledged, however, that two trustees – Ethan Hastert and Pat Schuberg – were not in attendance and should have a voice. Anderson said he prefers to meet less frequently because it allows Willret to be more efficient, as she is not constantly preparing for meetings. However, he said the issue will be discussed.

ST. CHARLES

Panel OKs office space Would help fill downtown stores By NICOLE WESKERNA nweskerna@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Plan Commission on Tuesday voted in favor of letting office spaces occupy downtown storefronts, which have been restricted mainly to retail use since 2006. The commission held a public hearing on making amendments to the Downtown Overlay Zoning District in hopes of filling up empty storefronts downtown and creating more pedestrian traffic. Members voted 5-1 to approve the changes, with Sue Amatangelo voting no. Commission member Tom Pretz was not present. The commission’s favorable recommendation will head to the City Council.

Downtown spaces within the overlay district are currently restricted to certain uses, such as art galleries, theaters, hotels, personal service businesses, restaurants and retailers. With the proposed changes, the overlay district would allow business and professional buildings, medical and dental offices and financial institutions to occupy those spaces. The city staff would review the changes after two years. Plan Commission member Tom Schuetz said it may be time to “think outside the box” in terms of filling those storefronts. “Maybe we’ll really do something great,” he said. “We don’t know what will happen.” Amatangelo suggested keeping the downtown overlay as-is for the storefronts along Main Street, but allowing the changes elsewhere in

the overlay district. Plan Commission member Brian Doyle said the problem with that idea is there are some highly visible empty storefronts along Main Street. “It doesn’t help the downtown district at all if there are numerous downtown vacancies people can see,” he said. St. Charles resident Sharon O’Leary, a local commercial real estate broker who represents downtown clients, said during public comment that she is in favor of the proposed changes. She said the changes would support a co-working concept that would help locate some workfrom-home business owners in space downtown, and foster networking opportunities for those business owners. “Right now, I have a couple of clients looking for office space downtown. I’m definitely in favor of it,” she said. “I think it would be good for our downtown.”

D-304, ex-employee settle for $287K Woman alleged age, gender discrimination after contract was not renewed as the employer’s contribution for her earnings, which is included in the total amount. Through its attorney, the district issued a statement announcing the two sides “have mutually resolved their legal disputes.” Officials referred questions to Petrungaro, who said there was no comment beyond the prepared statement. Pennington’s attorney had no comment, and Pennington did not return a voicemail message seeking comment. All payments to Pennington and her attorney, as well as the district’s litigation expenses, were covered by the district’s liability insurer, IAG, officials said. In addition to the settlement cost, the litigation cost to the insurer was about $180,000, according to a Freedom of Information Act request. Without admitting fault on either side, the settlement agreement states it is a compromise in the interests of avoiding additional litigation costs. Other terms of the

agreement include dropping all legal claims and each side not publicly disparaging the other side. It also requires that evaluation reports and the nonrenewal of her contract be removed from Pennington’s employment record with the district. Instead, the district will provide a letter of reference in Pennington’s formal personnel file, according to the settlement. Pennington, who has a Ph.D. in education and 27 years of experience, was principal at Heartland Elementary School for the 2008-09 school year. She was reassigned as coordinator of special projects for the district for the 2009-10 school year, then her contract was not renewed for the 200910 school year. In 2009, Pennington sued the district in federal court, alleging age – she was 52 in 2008 – and gender discrimination and said the district tried to intimidate her from pursuing discrimination complaints. In a 2011 complaint of

The nine-page settlement agreement was released Tuesday following a Freedom of Information Act request filed with the district’s attorney, James Petrungaro. The monetary part of the nine-page settlement covers Pennington’s back pay, crediting her with unused sick days and personal days. The agreement calls for the district to subtract $73,500 from Pennington’s settlement and cut a separate check to be sent to pay her attorney, Ruth Major. The remaining $213,500 is to have all taxes and pension deductions made before it is paid to her.

age and gender discrimination with the Illinois Human Rights Commission, Pennington, then 54, of Geneva, claimed school officials engaged in a two-year pattern of abuse and humiliation against her, in violation of state and federal law. A federal judge ruled in favor of the district’s motion to dismiss her suit, but gave her leave to file an amended complaint. The district also sued Pennington in 2011, seeking more

than $100,000 in damages on behalf of itself and two assistant superintendents, alleging that Pennington tape-recorded meetings despite being told not to. In February, Kane County Circuit Court Judge David Akemann dismissed the district’s case, saying the state’s eavesdropping law is unconstitutional. The school board voted in September to authorize a settlement with Pennington. The agreement was released after a period of time allowed for the parties to review the terms.

Watch D.O.G.S. group helps local fathers get involved in their kids’ education By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com

• Wednesday, November 6, 2013

ATAVIA – When Batavia parent Dan Pepin gets home from work, his two young children already have finished their homework. “They want to play,” Pepin said. To understand more about his children’s education, Pepin recently signed up to be a volunteer with Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students), a national program that encourages fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers and uncles to get more involved in children’s education. Watch D.O.G.S., which began in 1998 in a school in Springdale, Ark., is in more than 3,000 schools in 46 states, according to the group’s website. It is a program of the National Center for Fathering, a nonprofit educational organization that provides research-based training and resources. Pepin signed up to volunteer at Hoover-Wood Elementary School on Halloween. He spent part of the day greeting students dressed in costume, as well as watching his 6-year-old son, Tyler, taking a quiz on a computer in his first-grade class. His daughter, Danielle, 5, attends kindergarten at Hoover-Wood. “I thought it would give me time to interact with my children, to see what they are learning, and interact with the other children,” Pepin said. “All the technology that is being used in the classroom these days was an eye-opener.” Pepin admitted he is not able to spend as much time at their school as his wife, Irma, who is a stay-at-home mom. Approximately 40 volunteers have signed up for the

program since it started this spring at Hoover-Wood. The success of the program has impressed HooverWood Principal Lew Girmscheid.

“I have been pleasantly surprised with the amount of dads who come in,” Girmscheid said. He sees the program providing a number of benefits. “For the dads, they get to know their child’s day, and see details of their day,” Girmscheid said. “It’s not just good for their own child, it’s also good for other children to see positive role models.” Batavia School District Superintendent Lisa Hichens agreed. She has seen the program in action. “It is a great way to get parents involved, in a nontraditional way,” Hichens said.

Hoover-Wood is the first school in Batavia School District 101 to implement the program. Rotolo Middle School is set to implement the program starting Monday. Rotolo Middle School Principal Steve Maciejewski said the program initially will be implemented in the sixth grade, and then will be expanded. Those who want to learn about the program are urged to attend an informational night pizza party at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the school’s multipurpose room, 1501 S. Raddant Road, Batavia.

Other school districts are seeing success with the program. This is the second year the Watch D.O.G.S. program has been in place at Kaneland Blackberry Creek Elementary School. “It’s been a very successful program,” Blackberry Creek Principal Martne McCoy said. “We can average two volunteers a day. They get a better understanding of what the students are learning these days.” Information about the Watch D.O.G.S. program can be found at www.fathers. com, by clicking on the link for Watch D.O.G.S.

A

soldier’s

service Elburn veteran speaks about war experience By AL LAGATTOLLA alagattolla@shawmedia.com ELBURN – Bob Funderburke recalls his 18th birthday, serving with the U.S. Army in the Korean War. He said he spent it on the top of a hill, facing an enemy attack. Yet, he still considers himself to be fortunate. He survived the experience, and he recovered from injuries suffered during his service. “A lot of guys in my outfit were not that lucky,” he said. The Elburn resident, who turns 82 years old today, said he doesn’t celebrate Veterans Day as he once did, as he has become upset over issues, such as the trade deficit with China and other foreign policy issues. He said the national anthem “used to bring tears to my eyes,” but it does not anymore. Veterans Day is Monday, and though Funderburke said he has issues with the way the country is run, he said he considers every U.S. veteran to be a colleague. He said he was 17 years old when he joined the Army, and he said he “never dreamed I would end up in combat or in Korea.” He vividly remembered the day he was wounded. He said he somehow knew it was going to happen, but he wasn’t afraid. He said he knew he would be hurt but not killed. He said he was fighting on a hillside, which he said was common

He said enemy troops were advancing toward his company, and “we knew we were in for it.” He said they were “totally surrounded.” “Somehow, I knew I was going to be wounded, but I knew I was going to live,” he said. He said he spotted an enemy soldier who went to fire at him but could not, as the weapon jammed. “When he raised his weapon, I thought, ‘Oh boy, I’ve bought it now,’ ” he said. Eventually, he said, he was shot at, and Funderburke’s helmet was hit. It was knocked off his head. He ran, and said he was hit by some shrapnel. “At first, I didn’t feel it,” he said. “Then I realized, I was wet, and I was bleeding pretty bad.”

He said “by pure dumb luck” he walked into an aid camp and eventually was flown out. He said he was operated on by a surgeon, a female, which he thought was unusual. He said she did a wonderful job. He said he then was expected to be sent back to the front lines, but his company commander, who “was a great guy,” wouldn’t allow it. “I’ll never forget him,” Funderburke said. He eventually finished his service and returned to the United States. Funderburke originally was from Missouri, south of St. Louis, but said he couldn’t wait to get out of there. He said there was “nothing left to stay for,” and he moved to the Chicago area. He ended up in Elburn, he said, because he wanted to move to

the country, and he couldn’t find the right place in Geneva, St. Charles or Batavia. His wife since has passed. His time in the service was rough, he said, but he told of a close friend who was right next to him one day and was hit in the leg by artillery. His friend was severely injured. He said he never found out what happened to his friend, a man Funderburke said had “a nice personality. You couldn’t help but like him. I was really sick when that happened to him.” As to why his friend was hit and he wasn’t, Funderburke said it “just simply wasn’t my time. ... I feel that God was protecting me, and to this day, I haven’t figured out why.”

SUGAR GROVE

Holiday in the Grove gets new tree Blue spruce ready for lighting event By NICOLE WESKERNA nweskerna@shawmedia.com SUGAR GROVE – The Holiday in the Grove kickoff ceremony will have a live Christmas tree to hang lights on. A local business donated a new tree to replace last year’s tree, which died because a sprinkler system did not quite reach it, an organizer said. Marguerite Ledone, vice president of Holiday in the Grove, said Spring Bluff Nursery in Sugar Grove donated a new seedling that was picked up and planted by Sugar Grove Community House board members in a slightly different location near the Sugar Grove Community House, 141 Main St. Ledone said the tree is ready for Saturday’s tree lighting ceremony at 9 a.m., which kicks off the Holiday in the Grove festivities. Spring Bluff Nursery also donated the tree used last year in the inaugural event. Tim Norris, president of Spring

Bluff Nursery, said he donated a Colorado blue spruce, which in Illinois can grow up to 40 feet tall. Ledone said hot chocolate and snacks will be served, and kids can make crafts during the hourlong ceremony. There will be an opportunity to purchase Breakfast with Santa tickets, as well as pick up volunteer and sponsorship forms or make a donation toward the festival. “If we can recruit 100 [volunteers] or more, we’re doing good,” Ledone said. “We get a lot of young volunteers, a lot of middle schoolers, high schoolers and moms with younger children. All ages can participate.” She noted that volunteers in fifth grade or younger should be accompanied by an adult. Norris said donating a second tree for the ceremony was a win-win for everyone. “It wasn’t too tough for me to do it,” he said. The Holiday in the Grove event will be Dec. 7. The day includes a visit from Santa, a cake walk, coffee with the mayor and many children’s activities.

South Elgin staging ‘Diary of Anne Frank’ SOUTH ELGIN – The drama program at South Elgin High School takes a serious turn with the production of “The Diary of Anne Frank,” from Thursday through Saturday.

City seeking better brush pickup deal By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – Aldermen at Tuesday’s Joint Committee of the Whole meeting recommended that Batavia city staff elicit new bids for the city’s brush collection program because of increased costs with the current provider. Since 2006, Batavia’s street division has contracted with West Chicago-based Kramer Tree Specialists for the city brush collection program. Earlier this year, Kramer

Tree Specialists informed the city that the contract amount did not cover their actual labor and equipment expenses. “They honored their 2013 contract price with the knowledge that they would be providing the program at a loss,” Batavia Street Superintendent Scott Haines told aldermen. The cost of the contract in 2006 was $84,000 and the current contract is $94,325. “Kramer has provided staff with a new proposal for the next five years that will

significantly increase the cost of the program,” Haines said. “This proposal more than doubles the current cost of the program by the second year.” As proposed, Kramer’s contract with the city would increase to $163,016 next year and to $203,770 in 2015. The program’s cost would continue to increase every year until 2018, when it would cost $242,039. To cover the additional cost of the program, the city’s 2014 budget proposes a 75 cent

increase in the monthly fee for the city’s leaf and brush program. The city in 2010 starting charging a $3 monthly leaf/brush fee on residents’ utility bills to dispose of their leaves. Sixth Ward Alderman Lisa Clark said she first wanted to see if the city could get a better price from another company before raising the fee. Seventh Ward Alderman Dave Brown agreed. “The citizens deserve for us to go out to bid on it,” he said.

ANOTHER VIEW

A new kind of medical professional to provide primary care BLOOMBERG NEWS One obvious way to address the shortage of primary medical care in the U.S. is to train more people who can provide it. Even if this could somehow happen overnight, though, it wouldn’t necessarily solve the problem – only 1 in 4 medical-school graduates goes into primary care (the least lucrative area of medicine), and no more than half of nurses and physician assistants do. Just as important, those who do practice general medicine rarely are drawn to work in the rural and inner-city areas where people most lack access to medical treatment. What’s needed is a strategy to lure people who already live in underserved com-

munities to practice health care there. One clever way of doing that, just proposed by a group of authors writing in the November issue of Health Affairs, is inspired by the successful model of emergency medicine – that is, give people the level of training that emergency medical technicians and paramedics receive, but aimed at primary rather than emergency care. After all, what do EMTs and paramedics do but bring medical skills and equipment to places where doctors and nurses aren’t readily available? In their case, the places are wherever car crashes, heart attacks or other sudden medical catastrophes happen. EMTs and paramedics also are trained relatively quickly and paid relatively modestly,

with a mean annual salary of less than $35,000. An EMT receives 150 hours of classroom instruction, plus supervised practice. A paramedic logs 1,000 to 2,000 hours of study and practice beyond that and might have an associate degree. “Primary care technicians” – as Arthur Kellermann, dean of the medical school at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, and his co-authors call them – would get the same amount of training in basic preventive care, health counseling, management of chronic conditions and treatment of minor illnesses. Like EMTs, PCTs would practice under a doctor’s supervision. To enable them to visit patients in a variety

of settings – storefront offices, community centers, even patients’ homes – PCTs would be equipped with portable medical devices, including stethoscopes, blood-pressure cuffs, video-equipped ear scopes and the like, as well as tablet computers. The tablets would give them access to information on treating all sorts of medical problems, enable them to keep patients’ medical records up to date, and allow them to send photos or videos of patients for supervising doctors to evaluate. Of course, PCTs could not instantly materialize. Training programs, which do not exist, would need to be created, and state licensing requirements would have to be updated. And a presumably reluctant medical

establishment would need to be convinced the idea would work. Perhaps only states with a great need for more widespread primary care would take up the strategy to begin with. Nor could PCTs by themselves solve the shortage of primary care doctors – a problem that’s set to worsen as millions more people get health insurance through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Increasing the number of primary care doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants remains essential. But a primary care technician is a fresh idea that combines the virtues of technology with convenience, and at a relatively low cost. It’s certainly worth a try.

Same-sex marriage expected to be signed by Gov. Quinn By NICOLE WESKERNA nweskerna@shawmedia.com Gov. Pat Quinn has indicated that he plans to sign a bill that would legalize samesex marriage in Illinois after lawmakers in the House and Senate both approved the measure Tuesday. The House voted 61-54 to pass Senate Bill 10, known as the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act. The measure shortly after moved to the Senate, which voted 3421 in favor of it, sending the bill to the governor. Quinn has said he plans to sign it into law as soon as he can. The law would provide “equal access to the status, benefits, protections, rights and responsibilities of civil marriage” to same-sex couples. Most local lawmakers

PetAirapy applies for new Chase grant ST.

voted against the measure, including State Rep. Tim Schmitz, R-Batavia; State Rep. Robert Pritchard, R-Hinckley; and State Rep. Kay Hatcher, R-Yorkville. However, State Rep. Linda Chapa LaVia, D-Aurora, voted in favor of the bill. State Rep. Mike Fortner, R-West Chicago, was absent. State Sen. Karen McConnaughay, R-St. Charles, and State Sen. Jim Oberweis, R-Sugar Grove, both voted against the bill when it went back to the Senate. State Sen. Linda Holmes, D-Aurora, voted yes. Hatcher said her vote was in line with what her constituents have communicated to her. “While many people in Springfield rely on professional, anonymous telephone polls, I prefer to trust person-

al conversations with the people I serve,” Hatcher wrote in an email. “Over 75 percent of the folks who have reached out to me and my office staff urged me to vote against gay marriage. My job is to represent them. I voted no.” Illinois would become the 15th state to legalize samesex marriage, in addition to Washington, D.C. In February, the Senate voted 34-21 to pass the bill. It was never brought up for a vote in the House. Same-sex couples have been able to be united in a civil union in Illinois since June 2011. After Tuesday’s votes, the White House issued a news release with a statement from President Barack Obama, who applauded the Illinois General Assembly for passing the measure. In the release, he stated that he and

Michelle Obama “are overjoyed for all the committed couples in Illinois whose love will now be as legal as ours – and for their friends and family who have long wanted nothing more than to see their loved ones treated fairly and equally under the law. “Throughout this debate, [the General Assembly has] made it clear that this is about civil marriages and civil laws, and made sure that churches and other institutions of faith are still free to make their own decisions that conform to their own teachings,” the release states. “... And tonight, I’m so proud that the men and women elected to serve the people of the great state of Illinois have chosen to take us one step further on that journey to perfect our union.” U.S. Rep. Bill Foster, D-Na-

perville, praised lawmakers in a news release for voting to pass the bill. He is a co-sponsor of the Respect for Marriage Act, which would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, also known as DOMA. “This is an important moment for civil rights in Illinois. I am very pleased that Illinois has joined 15 other states in allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry,” he wrote in a news release. “Everyone – no matter who they are, where they came from, or who they love – deserves equal rights under the law. “Now it’s time to take action at the federal level by fully repealing DOMA and recognizing gay and lesbian marriage nationwide.” Groups such as the Illinois Unites for Marriage organization championed Tuesday’s vote as a historic one.

GENEVA SECTIONAL SEMIFINAL: STC NORTH DEF STC EAST, 2-0 (25-19, 25-22)

North takes out East in showdown By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com GENEVA – St. Charles North girls volleyball players welcomed an onrushing student section Tuesday night. Charged by the North Stars’ 25-19, 25-22 sweep of St. Charles East in a Class 4A Geneva Sectional semifinal, the “Blue Fan Group” stormed the court, and North’s players held their ground. North showed similar poise throughout the night, pouncing on the Saints as East continually kept itself down with 10 service errors. North (30-5) seized control early in both games against East (31-7) and will look to duplicate that intensity in Thursday’s sectional final against host Geneva. “In a way, it kind of helps knowing everyone on the other side of the net,” North senior outside hitter Taylor Krage said, “but in a way it doesn’t, because sometimes you play too much into what you think each girl is going to do and their tendencies when really, you’ve just got to go out and play.” The Vikings handed the North Stars their lone Upstate Eight Conference River Divi-

North defeated visiting East, 25-17, 23-25, 25-22 on Sept. 17, one week before the Geneva loss. That victory against the Saints marked the first win for North Stars coach Lindsey Hawkins – the former Lindsey Linkimer – against her alma mater since joining the program in 2009. Tuesday’s meeting was hardly the first postseason encounter between the schools, and the sight of Saints and North Stars socializing after the match was a common one after the North students dispersed. “Honestly, a game can’t ruin a friendship,” East senior out-

side hitter Dana Voltolina said. “I love my team, I loved this season, but one game doesn’t decide our life.” Veteran Saints coach Jennie Kull succintly assessed what she thought turned the latest North-East clash. “We live and die by the serve, and tonight we died by it. That’s the bottom line,” Kull said. “That’s what kept us in so many games, and today, it took us out of the game. We didn’t execute tonight. We didn’t play well, unfortunately. I think that if we would have executed the [game plan] that we would have been able to be more successful.” East closed to within 15-13 in the second game, but followed up with a service error, one of four in the game. The same thing happened one point after the Saints trailed, 21-20. North’s sister tandem of Taylor Krage (six kills) and her younger sibling, sophomore Daley (five kills), often subdued the Saints when there weren’t self-inflicted wounds. Taylor Krage handcuffed East’s Chloe Rojas (eight digs) with the match-clinching kill. In the first Genva match, Taylor Krage smacked 16 kills

while Daley added six. “It’s a magical connection out there between them,” Hawkins said. “Sometimes, I get goosebumps when I see them talking to each other, giving each other tips on what to be doing, what shots are open. Daley’s really thrived having her sister, and she’s learned a lot from her, and so it’s just a special bond I don’t think a lot of people can understand. And it’s really helped our team a lot this year.” Voltolina and Megan Schildmeyer contributed seven kills apiece for East, which was bidding to return to its home floor for supersectionals on Saturday. Carly Jimenez had 21 assists while Anne Hughes added 11 digs. Defensive specialist Alex Seavey and setter Sydney Wohlert excelled in moving the ball to North’s hitters. Communication issues plagued the North Stars against the Vikings in September. “That sort of thing can happen against any team,” Taylor Krage said. “It wasn’t because we were playing them, per se, it was us coming out not focused. So we’re definitely coming into Thursday ready to play.”

IHSA CLASS 4A GENEVA SECTIONAL: GENEVA DEF. GLENBARD WEST, 2-0 (25-20, 25-21)

By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com

Sandy Bressner – sbressner@shawmedia.com

Geneva players celebrate their 25-20, 25-21 Class 4A Geneva Sectional semifinal win Tuesday over Glenbard West. between the teams last fall. Entering 2012, Glenbard West had not captured a regional title since 1985. Two matches after taking care of that drought, it rallied for a 25-27, 27-25, 25-21 victory against Geneva in the Larkin Sectional final. Geneva junior libero Kelsey Wicinski (20 digs) recalled a disjointed effort that night. On Tuesday, she described the Vikings as “just one, big team.” Senior Courtney Caruso added 17 assists for Geneva, which will play for the program’s first sectional championship Thursday against St. Charles North. “We’ve just got to be consistent,” Vikings coach KC Johnsen said. “We have our moments where we’re on, we have our moments when we’re off. We’ve just got to be consistent in between and we can play with all those people.” With a three-game victory against the North Stars already under their belt, the Vikings also are eager to highlight a home-court advantage. Geneva’s student section

showed nearly as much nerve as the Vikings, chanting “OVER-RATED” when Geneva held a 24-19 lead in Game 1.

The group added the “I believe that we will win chant” with Geneva ahead, 17-14, in Game 2. Glenbard West closed to

within one point, but a Lanasa kill and a Hilltoppers hitting error quickly created familiar breathing room.

GENEVA – A handful of public address announcements reminded girls volleyball fans that top-seeded Glenbard West – not the 4A Geneva Sectional hosts – played as the home team Tuesday. As the Vikings rolled to a 25-20, 25-21 sweep, the crowd didn’t have to look at the scoreboard to sense which team was in control. Outpowering and overwhelming a team it had pushed to three games in tournament play earlier this season, fourth-seeded Geneva (28-9) handled the Hilltoppers from the start. “We just kind of played like we had nothing to lose, and we just did really well,” Vikings freshman right-side/ outside hitter Ally Barrett said. Barrett, a freshman, had six kills to round out a balanced attack that included classmate Grace Loberg (nine kills) and junior Hannah Lanasa (eight). Glenbard West (34-4) figured it would have an answer with its own young gun, but Barrett (four blocks) and senior middle Taylor Marmitt (three) largely held Hilltoppers sophomore outside hitter Natalie Schilling in check. Geneva admittedly felt its energy waver at the beginning of the second game, but a combination of Vikings kills and Hilltoppers errors allowed the Vikings to pull away. Glenbard West’s most visible gaffes – a would-be dig that immediately crashed down after hitting the basketball hoop overhead and a backward set to a vacant spot – were hardly the stuff of the teams’ most recent meeting. In September, the Hilltoppers edged the Vikings for the Glenbard West Invitational title with a 32-30 victory in Game 3. “It’s been our energy and really wanting to win this year,” Lanasa said. “I think it just really pushed us to win it.” It was a different story

JORDAN MORLING

Warriors returning to semis JAY SCHWAB jschwab@shawmedia.com

St. Charles East • Sophomore • Girls swimming Why she was selected: Morling helped East to the Upstate Eight Conference title Saturday by taking part in four winning swims. Jordan Morling won the 200yard individual medley (2:09.32) and 100 backstroke (57.14) at Saturday’s Upstate Eight Conference meet while teaming with the victorious 200 medley relay (1:47.93) and 400 freestyle relay (3:37.39). Morling, the St. Charles Bank & Trust-Kane County Chronicle Athlete of the Week, is in her first season with the Saints after moving from Virginia. Here’s an edited transcript of a conversation with Chronicle sports reporter Kevin Druley:

cheering. It’s awesome to have your team cheering and it gets you through having that many events.

How close was your roster of events to what you might see in the state series?

If you were having trouble with some difficult homework, which teammate would you turn to for help?

I’m typically in four events, but those will be my events for state, so it’s good to get to practice them before. … It’s just kind of once you get going, it’s the momentum, everyone’s

It’s a pretty easy move. It’s good to have change in your swimming, and being coached in different ways helps you. It’s benefited me here, so I hope that continues.

DeKALB – Revenge and a return trip to the IHSA Boys Soccer Class 2A state semifinals, all rolled into one for Wheaton Academy. Th e W a r r i o r s a c c o mplished both with Tuesday’s 2-0 win against Peoria Notre Dame in the DeKalb Supersectional. Notre Dame knocked Wheaton Academy off in a penalty kick shootout in last year’s state semifinals. “It’s a blast,” Warriors forward Ty Seager said. “PND has won [three of the past five] tournament championships. We lost to them last Ty Seager year, and we wanted another go. I had a gut feeling we could do it this year.” The win advances the Warriors to an 11 a.m. state semifinal Friday against St. Ignatius at Hoffman Estates, the new venue for the Final Four this season. Seager scored an insurance goal in the final minute, but Wheaton Academy (223-1) nursed a 1-0 lead almost the entire match, despite a handful of close brushes with a second goal. That included a slow, rolling shot that Seager said he barely got a toe on that nicked off the post early in the sec-

It wasn’t that tragic because our defense is so good.” Wheaton Academy scored less than seven minutes into the match after Sam Hardy was shoved from behind in the box, drawing a penalty kick. Senior defender Marshall West – who said he has converted a handful of penalty kicks on the season without missing – buried the attempt to the left of Buck. “I remember that we played them last year so I know the goalie knows a lot of our PKs,” West said. “I kind of change it up every now and then.” While Buck was part of

last year’s Notre Dame-Wheaton Academy state theatrics, Warriors goalkeeper Drew Sezonov was not in the teams’ 2012 showdown as the graduated Spencer Graf manned the net for Wheaton Academy last year. On Tuesday, Sezonov wasn’t tested much, but he made a dynamite stop late in the first half to keep the Warriors in the lead. “Some people might forget it, but what a save. … It was just a reaction save, and obviously that was just huge,” Wheaton Academy coach Jeff Brooke said. “You ask your GK to make all the saves that he should, plus one, and he did it tonight, and that’s moving us on.” Notre Dame coach Mike Bare’s team ends its season with a 17-6-4 record. “[Wheaton Academy] got a lot of chances there that we just had to kind of scramble to stay in the game,” Bare said. “We stayed in the game until the very end. Just unfortunately, we couldn’t put one away.” The Warriors prevailed despite some tough recent medical breaks. Starting winger Reid Culberson was unavailable after injuring his ankle in Friday’s regional final triumph against Burlington Central, while midfielder Michael Carver hobbled off early in the second half Tuesday with a hamstring injury. Brooke said Culberson’s status for Friday’s semifinal is uncertain.

Wright connects with Kansas State baseball Cory Wright’s cellphone went missing Monday, and the St. Charles North junior fretted that his phone might have been stolen. On the bright side, Wright didn’t have to worry about missing any important correspondences from college recruiters. Wright made the final call on that matter Saturday. While visiting Kansas State over the weekend, Wright offered the K-State baseball program his verbal commitment. A first baseman and left-handed pitcher for North, the Wildcats are primarily interested in him at first base, Wright said. “The biggest kind of draw I thought was they’re in the Big 12,” Wright said. “They play Texas, TCU all those huge, southern schools. That baseball conference is pretty loaded.

PREP ZONE Jay Schwab [Kansas State’s] whole kind of mentality and approach toward the game is grinding it out, hustling, and I feel that’s kind of my mold toward everything.” The Wildcats’ recruiting interest in Wright – and eventual partial scholarship offer Saturday morning – affirmed what at the time was a somewhat painful decision. Wright gave up North’s homecoming weekend this fall to trek to a fall tournament on Kansas State’s campus with his travel program, Elite Baseball Training. Wright performed well at the tournament, prompting an invitation from Wildcats coaches to return to

Manhattan, Kan., for a recruiting visit. “I was bummed until I heard that they wanted me [to come back for a visit],” Wright said. “I got over [homecoming] pretty quick.” Wright was one of the top players for North’s varsity team as a sophomore last spring, although he wasn’t satisfied with his performance offensively. But Wright said he made great Cory Wright strides during the summer and through fall ball. This summer, he batted .380 with a .482 on-base percentage and .971 on-base plus slugging, according to a news release from the Elite program. At 6-foot-1, 170 pounds,

Wright recognizes he doesn’t have prototypical size for a slugging first baseman, but said his skill set has been compared to current Kansas State first baseman Shane Conlon, a 6-1, 185-pound Naperville Central product. “I think my strength and power have gotten up,” Wright said. “I hit a lot of extra base hits this summer and fall, and in the spring, I wasn’t really doing that. I was more of a contact-type guy.” Playing with Elite this fall meant giving up football. A wide receiver, Wright said opting not to play varsity football was a painful sacrifice. “It was tough,” Wright said. “I had to talk to [North football coach Rob Pomazak] about it, and it was a tough decision to make because there’s nothing like Friday night lights. I miss

my other family. It’s kind of tough to leave those guys but I just think it was the right thing to do this year. “As far as next year, I have no idea if I’m going to play or not. The decision has not been made for yes or no for next year. Obviously, the desire to play is there, but I don’t know if that’s going to fit in for the future.” Wright made several visits and seriously considered Ohio State and Missouri before opting to become the first member of K-State’s 2015 recruiting class. His older brother, K.C., plays collegiately at Judson University.

Spartans, Rockets volleyball advance KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE COAL CITY – The St. Francis girls volleyball team made surprisingly quick work of perennial power Joliet Catholic, prevailing in Tuesday’s IHSA Class 3A Coal City Sectional semifinal, 25-10, 25-18. The defending IHSA Class 3A state champion Spartans needed three games in both of their wins last week in regionals – and

also went three in a regular-season win against the Angels this season – but St. Francis (35-3) was dominant in this one. “They were outstanding,” St. Francis coach Peg Kopec said of her players. “Very steady teamwork. We excelled in all facets of the game.” Molly Haggerty (nine kills, five blocks), Sam Dubiel (17 digs, eight service points), Natalie Murison

(16 assists) and Mary Boken (12 service points, six kills) were among the leaders for St. Francis. Kopec wouldn’t go as far as to call Tuesday’s performance the team’s best of the season but said it was “certainly wonderful.” The Spartans advance to face host Coal City in Thursday’s sectional final.

IHSA Class 3A Burlington Central Sectional: Host Central knocked off Lakes,

25-20, 25-22, in a sectional semifinal. Maddy Barry (18 assists, nine digs), Lauren Wiltsie and Makenna Jensen (seven kills each) and Allie O’Reilly and Aly Detamble (15 digs each) paced a balanced effort for the Rockets (27-11). Central, advancing to a sectional final for the first time since 2008, will face Marian Central on Thursday for the sectional crown.

BEARS

BEARS INSIDER Tom Musick middle with the type of guys that they have. It’s hard to get the movement that you want to get at all times. So it was in our game plan, if we had to go third-and-1, third-and-short, fourth-and-short, we had to get outside. And we executed. Musick: And with all of the work that you guys put in during training camp and during practice, you must appreciate a chance to show it off on a play like that. Bushrod: Absolutely. I mean, that won the game for us, that momentum. If we didn’t get that, our defense would have held their ground and gave us another opportunity to go and win the game, but at the end of the day, we wanted to end it with us on the field, for the most part. And our defense did a [heck] of a job stopping them at the end, getting pressure. That’s what it’s about, man. Musick: You’ve been in this league for a while. You’ve seen inches win games, right? Bushrod: Yeah, I played here two years ago [for the New Orleans Saints] when we opened up after they won the Super Bowl, and we were fourth-and-a-couple-inches on the goal line, and that stopped us from winning the game. So I understand the type of players that they have over there. But yeah, man, it’s a game of inches. It was literally – I don’t even think it was a real inch. I think it was like a half-inch. It was that short. I was talking to the ref. I was like, “Any other sport, you get a tie, it goes to the offense.” I was like, “Come on, we need that right now.” But you know, we made the game a little more interesting, and we got it on fourth and short. Next to Bushrod, left guard Matt Slauson sat in a folding chair in front of his locker. Musick: What’s going through your mind when you hear the coaches say “Go for it” on fourth-and-short with

The Bears’ Jermon Bushrod blocks for Jay Cutler against New Orleans on Oct. 6 at Soldier Field in Chicago. so much at stake? Slauson: Oh, it’s awesome. We love to get an opportunity to shine as an O-line. Because all of the receivers are making all the catches, the running backs are getting all the yards – that’s our time. It was great. I thought it was a great call, a very smart call, because we knew that they were going to put all of those big guys inside and just dive through. So we played a little pin-and-pull scheme. I pinned, [Roberto] Garza pulled, and it was awesome. Musick: So your job there

is to just push your guy inside, down the line? Slauson: Yeah. There was a guy lined up between me and “Garz,” and I just blocked down, and [Garza] pulled around to the corner or safety or whoever it was and had a great block. Musick: When you get that first down, did you feel like you had the game in hand? Slauson: We had the confidence all game long. We came in here off a really good week of practice feeling good. We had all the confidence in Josh, we had all the confidence in our defense,

we had all the confidence in ourselves. We knew that the fourth-and-1 was the only thing standing in our way. That was it. A few feet away, rookie right tackle Jordan Mills stood in front of his locker. He had yet to remove his pads. I wondered what was happening on the right side during the play. Musick: What’s your job during that play as Forte runs to the opposite side? Mills: Cut off the back side and make sure there’s no penetration and nobody gets through. I saw after the play was over that Slauson and Bushrod dominated on their side, and me and Kyle [Long] cleaned up the back side as best as we can. It’s not just about one person. It’s about the whole offense collectively. The wide receivers blocking, Tony [Fiammetta] getting the lead blocks, and Matt just getting the first down. Musick: Who was the most fired up after that conversion? Bushrod is usually pretty low key, but he seemed pretty excited discussing the play. Bushrod: Oh, yeah. He got pretty fired up. He gave me a little elbow to the chest. It was cool, just to see our team all hypin’ and pumpin’, just to see our sideline react and the fans we had in the stands react. It was like no other. Musick: Did it surprise you when you got the call to go for it? Because it’s a pretty huge gamble, considering what might have happened if it didn’t work out. Mills: But you know what? In this league, if you don’t have guts, you’re not going to make it long. You’ve got to make the gut-check calls. Either you’re going to make it or you’re not, and Coach Trestman knew we were going to make it, so he had the trust in our offense to do it. And we did it.

Football is a game of inches. At one point or another, we all have heard this phrase from a coach or a player or a broadcaster who has watched football for the majority of his life. But it’s not an empty cliché. It’s a truth. For the latest example, look no further than the Bears’ bold decision late in the game Monday against the Green Bay Packers. The Bears led by four points and faced fourth-and-inches from their 32-yard-line, but rather than play it safe and punt the ball, Marc Trestman decided to go for it and call for a running play by Matt Forte. Big risk. As it turned out, big reward. The Bears converted for a first down, prompting a marathon drive down the field and a 27-20 win that snapped a six-game losing streak against their oldest rivals. Let the Bears’ offensive linemen fill in the specifics on the biggest play of the game. No lineman was happier than left tackle Jermon Bushrod, who stood and spoke excitedly about the play as if he were a receiver who made a game-winning catch. Musick: When it’s fourthand-1 deep in your territory, and the coaches tell you guys, ‘Let’s go get it,’ what kind of message does that send to the offensive line? Bushrod: It’s an inch. This is what we’re here to do. We’re here to open up holes. And, fourth-and-1, eight or nine minutes left in the fourth quarter, we have to convert. We have to. There’s no question about it. The play call was perfect. We didn’t run it all day. We dialed it up. We just had to stick to our assignments, and we did a good job. Musick: What exactly was the play call? Bushrod: It’s an outside stretch play, pulling a couple people around just to get some extra blockers out on the edge. Because we knew that it’s tough to run up the

In new albums, Eminem, M.I.A. explore what’s left to rebel against By JEFF WEISS Special to The Washington Post Rebellion ends at the moment of embrace. There’s only so long you can convincingly rage against the machine, when your rage is what fuels it. This moment is where we find Eminem and M.I.A., each with a new album – his “The Marshall Mathers LP 2,” hers “Matangi” – and engaged in alternate versions of “This Is 40.” The barbarians have become brands capable of altering corporate bottom lines. Eminem has hawked oceans of Brisk Iced Tea, fleets of Chryslers and more records than any living rapper. An Oscar gleams on the 41-year old’s mantel in his Kmart mansion in suburban Detroit. Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam, 38, has similarly turned cultural sedition into immense success. The daughter of a revolutionary displaced by the Sri Lankan civil war has her own Versace line. Her young son is a scion to the Seagram’s liquor fortune. Eminem may shout out his underground bona fides on the new album’s “Legacy,” but he’s as responsible as anyone for the mainstreaming of hiphop. The first “Marshall Mathers LP” transcended genre. It was wincingly profane, emotionally unnerving and captured the millennial zeitgeist. As Eminem put it: The underground spun around and did a 360. You could use the same phrase to describe M.I.A. flipping off 111 million viewers during the 2012 Super Bowl halftime show. The act earned her a $1.5 million lawsuit from the NFL. A response comes on “Matangi’s” “Boom Skit,” in which she assails those angry that she tried to “steal Madonna’s crown.” Her politics are muddled, but the message is clear: neither truffle fries nor television time mitigate her desire to savage those “who don’t get our underground.” Eminem’s definition of “underground” specifically referred to a schism in hip-hop culture; M.I.A.’s encompasses the global disenfranchised. The first “Marshall Mathers LP”

became a touchstone because Eminem spoke for the millions who dressed, walked and talked like him. “Matangi” implicitly reproaches that same fairhaired, light-eyed majority – or anyone reaping the dividends of economic inequality. While their creative differences might be stark, both spend much of their latest records exploring what’s left to rebel against. M.I.A.’s fourth album is a dialectic disguised as a dance party. In interviews given last year, she blamed delays on record label executives dismayed at her shift towards positivity. Still, there’s plenty of vitriol aimed at multinational oligarchs, government surveillance and those “whose guns point the wrong way.” “ATENTion” spotlights the plight of dispossessed refugees, complete with an uncredited writing assist from WikiLeaks founder and M.I.A. comrade Julian Assange. There’s “Bring the Noize,” which takes its name from Public Enemy, and rants against banks, bad tattoos and how she’s the “overweight, heavyweight, female Slick Rick.” But “Matangi” also doubles as an exploration of metaphysical and carnal concerns. Its title comes from the Hindu tantric goddess of speech, music and

knowledge. What’s left to rebel against is converted into a multimedia art experiment. Eminem’s aims are comparatively vague. “I’m all out of Backstreet Boys to attack,” he laments on “Evil Twin,” a rare highlight from “MMLP2.” The semi-sequel finds him at a crossroads, scanning the horizon of broken-up boy bands and faded pop stars he once reviled. “Who’s left? Lady Gaga? Mess with the Bieber? Nah,” he continues. It’s an honest admission that the war is over. Yet much of the album ironically finds him lobbing stale and dated pop culture salvos towards a world where CNN brings next-day analysis of Miley Cyrus twerking. On the first “Marshall Mathers LP,” Eminem used his whiteness to incisively examine deeper racial hypocrisies. Its successor finds him adrift in a world where the other most popular white rapper advocates for same-sex marriage and grandpa sweaters. The same homophobic slurs, mommy issues and violent threats toward women remain. But whereas Eminem once used them in service of jokes and cohesive narratives, he now uses them as a trigger for nostalgia. The Rick Rubin-produced lead single “Berzerk” intimated that “MMLP2” would be Eminem’s throwback album, but Rubin’s contributions seem to mostly comprise exhuming old Zombies and Joe Walsh loops over which Eminem can express his confusion about Facebook and Internet downloading. Eminem’s syllable manipulation and rhyming agility remain staggering. But success has validated his worst musical decisions and Sam’s Club tastes. Since “Lose Yourself,” Eminem has increasingly incorporated atonal, nasally hooks and grumpy-dad growls. But they lack build and pacing – crescendos come as randomly as a mad dog barking at a ghost. He mistakes architectural complexity for advancement. The raps are technical metal guitar solos that go nowhere. The flows are dazzling but lack the elasticity and playful wit of Eminem’s early brilliance.


DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips man, I’m advising you to quit being his booty call. There are other ways to scratch an itch, depending upon whose itch it is. If you continue seeing him under these circumstances, you could wind up being the mother of another one of his children, God forbid. Dear Abby: I am writing this hoping that anyone who is in a supervisory position at work will see it and think before pressuring employees to buy popcorn, cookies, wrapping paper, trinkets, chocolate bars, etc., for their children’s schools or organizations. This is extortion. I have tried saying, “No, thank you,” but I get such a bad attitude from my supervisor that I end up ordering something – usually the cheapest item – to avoid the drama. I can’t afford to drop $20 here and there on items I wouldn’t otherwise buy or eat. It’s a lot of money to employees who haven’t

had wage or benefit increases in more than four years. I can barely keep my car filled with gas and have to unroll coins sometimes to pick up food for dinner a day or two before payday. PLEASE tell bosses and managers not to solicit sales from employees. It’s tacky! – Turned Off In Pennsylvania Dear Turned Off: I’m happy to get the word out because I agree that the sales tactic your supervisor is using is tacky. Parents who do this for their children deny the kids the experience of doing the selling and learning to cope with rejection if prospective customers don’t buy. Because you don’t have $20 to spare, you might be able to deflect the “attitude” by offering a small donation – a dollar or two – to the cause. But if you can’t spare any money, then stiffen your spine and don’t let yourself be made to feel guilty. Buying things you don’t need is not part of your job description. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Studies bring mixed results for glucosamine and chondroitin Dear Doctor K: What’s the verdict on glucosamine and chondroitin? Do they help relieve osteoarthritis pain? Dear Reader: Whether glucosamine and chondroitin pills help osteoarthritis pain has been controversial. As with most medical controversies, there rarely is a verdict that everyone accepts. So, I’m not sure there is a verdict yet in this controversy. In fact, I’m going to argue that the controversy may be misguided: It may not be a question of whether these pills help everyone with osteoarthritis or not. There’s no doubt that we need good and better treatments for osteoarthritis. I speak as a sufferer who had a hip replaced because osteoarthritis had destroyed it. Living with arthritis can be challenging, as the pain and stiffness make it difficult to perform daily tasks most people take for granted. Glucosamine and chondroitin are compounds found in healthy cartilage, which is the tough but flexible tissue in our joints. Joints are the places where two (or more) bones meet, but bone doesn’t rub against bone. Instead, in most joints it is the cartilage lining one bone “kissing” the

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff cartilage lining the other. Osteoarthritis involves the breakdown of normal cartilage. So it makes sense that taking supplements of naturally occurring compounds like glucosamine and chondroitin could help maintain cartilage in people with the condition. Randomized clinical trials have compared each of these two supplements, alone and in combination, against placebo (dummy) pills in people suffering from osteoarthritis of the hip and knee. An analysis of 10 studies that included nearly 4,000 patients did not find much evidence of reduced pain from glucosamine and chondroitin. Some studies found only a temporary benefit, and only among patients with the most pain. On the other hand, there also was no evidence of side effects from these substances. And consider this: When a randomized trial does not find that a treatment produces better symptom relief than a

placebo pill, that means that the average person in the study got no benefit from the treatment. However, it is possible that some of the people in the study really did benefit. Over the years, I’ve had patients tell me they have less pain and stiffness when regularly taking these supplements. If they think it helps, I don’t discourage them from taking these pills. If you’re wondering whether you should take them, the answer is, “It depends.” If you have moderate to severe osteoarthritis pain, it’s reasonable to try the glucosamine-chondroitin combination for two to three months. If you find it eases your pain, it’s reasonable to keep using it. If not, you might as well save your money. As always, if you choose to take these or any other alternative treatments, tell your physician. One caution: Avoid these supplements if you are allergic to shellfish. Some products use shellfish as a source of glucosamine.

not like drinking alone Dr. Wallace: I am a high school senior and will be attending Valparaiso University next year. I’m not considered to be a “goodie, goodie,” but I’m totally against anything that will alter my health; that includes using drugs or alcohol. My best friend, who is in her first year at Indiana University, has told me that many of the IU students engage in something called binge drinking. She knows that it is a game where students consume a lot of beer. Will you please inform me about binge drinking? Trust me, if binge drinking is a part of the social scene at VU, I won’t be participating. – Nameless, Cedar Lake, Ind. Dear Nameless: Binge drinkers don’t drink alone. Usually, they are with a group of friends who egg one another on, urging the timid to drink up amid whistles and cheers. Peer pressure is a potent force. Most binge drinkers don’t even enjoy the taste of the alcohol they’re chugging. This is group stupidity in action. Binge drinking is a dangerous activity both because of the unhealthy quantity of alcohol the binge drinkers consume quickly and because, when they’re drunk, they often take foolish risks, encouraged by their fellow drinkers. While binge drinking is a matter of serious concern for college administrators, the great majority of students do not participate in this activity. According to a University of California study, many binge drinkers are first-year students who are away from home for the very first time. They drink to excess in order to make

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace friends and prove their independence. Dr. Wallace: My closest friend and I are both 14, and could be called “nerds,” and we were proud of it. But lately, she has been hanging around with the “cool” girls at school and has been acting real phony. I know the cool group has accepted her because they all have pet names for each other and they now call her “Peaches.” When I asked her why she was doing this, she said she didn’t know what I was talking about. She still talks to me at night, but she totally ignores me at school. To make matters worse, she told me she doesn’t want to go roller-skating with me anymore on Friday nights because she wants to meet boys. Do you think it is possible I can make her come to her senses? – Kelly, Atlanta, Ga. Dear Kelly: Few things feel more disappointing than a best friend’s desertion, but that appears to be what’s happening to you. She’s changing. I doubt that she’ll “come to her senses” any time soon. Your best bet is to stop counting on her companionship – especially during the school day – the way you used to. Look for other friends with whom you have more in common. By all means, keep talking to her in the evenings. Your friendship may survive this confusing time, but for now, don’t expect too much from your old pal. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@ galesburg.net.

Dear Abby: For two and a half years I have taken care of my daughter without the help of her father. He pays child support only when the courts threaten to throw him in jail, but he never comes to see her. When he does come by, it’s not to see or spend time with her, it’s to try and get sex from me. Sometimes I give in and give it to him as an itch to scratch. He recently got “married” and now has four other children. The last time he was over, I noticed that he has all his children’s initials tattooed on his arm except our daughter’s, and it bothered me. I only want what is best for my little girl, and I have made it clear that if he isn’t a part of her life now, that he needs to stay away until she’s an adult. I don’t want her to be hurt by a part-time or sometimes dad. I guess my question is, is it OK to be angry that he doesn’t recognize her as his child but does his other four? – Po’d In Ohio Dear Po’d: Oh, goodness gracious, yes. And because you don’t want your child to be hurt by this

With four trumps, bid conventionally

CELEBRITY CIPHER

Andre Maurois, a French author who was born Emile Salomon Wilhelm Herzog and died in 1967, said, “Conversation would be vastly improved by the constant use of four simple words: I do not know.” The meaning of responder’s first-round bid in today’s deal is not known by some of my students. I have mentioned it a few times, but perhaps it is forgotten because it comes up rarely. After opener bids one of a major and the next player makes a takeout double, a response of two no-trump guarantees at least four-card support for partner’s suit and game-invitational or better values (at most eight losers). In borderline cases, this gives the opener space to make a helpsuit game-try at the three-level (which would be impossible after a three-heart limit raise if the intervenor had passed). This use of two no-trump also permits a jump raise to three hearts to show four-card support and a weaker hand, which responder hopes will effectively inconvenience the opponents. Finally, if responder has a big balanced hand, he starts with a redouble. Against four hearts, West leads the diamond queen. How should South plan the play? Declarer should see that he might lose one trick in each suit. If he takes the first trick and plays a trump, West wins with his ace and returns a diamond, condemning South to defeat. Instead, declarer should lead his club at trick two. East wins and plays back a diamond, but South wins, leads a spade to dummy’s ace, and discards his diamond loser on the high club. Now declarer can start to draw trumps.
