Naturalist Ben Katzen (right) shows visitors the lighting used during a tour of Creek Bend Nature Center on Sunday. By BRENDA SCHORY ST. CHARLES – When the Kane County Forest Preserve District bought the property that is now the Creek Bend Nature Center within LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve, the district spent $2.5 million to remodel and add on to the 1930s house. A small group attended a program there Sunday on “The Nature Network: Make a Green Resolution.” Naturalist Ben Katzen said the district put in upgraded energy efficient windows, motion detector lights and room-by-room climate control. All work together to keep the older building’s energy costs down. Katzen led the group through the older parts of the house that are available for rentals. He also took them on a tour the upstairs where bedrooms were converted to offices, work and conference rooms and in the basement, where nature program supplies are stored. One of the things done to the older building during the remodeling was to add a supplemental heating system to the existing boiler and radiators, Katzen said.

“People have told me they love the heat from radiators versus forced air heating,” Katzen said. “But the problem is there’s a lot of hot and cold spots. This side of the house designated for rentals and parties and things. You want to have a lot more control over the climate.” The supplemental climate pads allow for heating and cooling of each individual room, in addition to the radiator heat, he said. The district rents out various rooms for private parties such as for weddings, showers, graduations and various banquets. The basement is the nature education headquarters, Katzen said, where a donated insect collection is kept, along with animal and wood artifacts and craft supplies. Because the district renovated the 80-year-old house, some aspects were more expensive than building new, he said. These include adding an elevator so it would be handicap accessible, putting in new water heaters, water filtration and sprinkler systems. “Because the house is on a well, there’s not enough water pressure to operate the sprinkler system, so this [sprinkler system] had to be in-

stalled,” Katzen said. “There’s a big tank [buried] in front of the nature center, and this builds up the pressure so if there was a fire, it would be able to spray through the sprinklers.” Tom Priscal of Geneva said he came to learn more about the center. “I wanted to learn what they had to say not only about this house ... but hopefully ways we can make our lives more energy efficient and preserve the environment,” Priscal said. Tom Sherwin and Shelly Windett of North Aurora said they came because of their interest in the environment. Windett said she especially liked the light switches that were motion-detector, automatically going on and off when people enter or exit a room. “I’m into the going green things and we are remodeling our basement,” Windett said. “We’d like to do it more environmentally friendly.” St. Charles resident Susan Bell said she toured the house before. “I just really love it here,” Bell said. “I was interested in the green aspects of it and how it applies to what I’m going to do at home.”


LOCAL NEWS | Kane County Chronicle / • Monday, December 30, 2013 Ashley Sloboda –

Ben Katzen, a naturalist with the Kane County Forest Preserve District, points to a downy woodpecker Saturday morning at LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve during a winter birds program.

Birds sought in guided walk through LeRoy Oakes By ASHLEY SLOBODA ST. CHARLES – With binoculars and cameras hanging around their necks, a few dozen people Saturday morning hiked around snow-covered LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve, hoping to catch sight of some birds. South Elgin resident Ellen Andersen – along with her 10-year-old son, Erik, and her father, Stan Jensen – were among the winter birds program participants. Andersen, who enjoys trying to see unusual birds, said she has been getting into birding and even got a bird bath for Christmas. A list compiled by the Kane County Audubon suggested participants might glimpse such feathered creatures as the northern cardinal, Euro-

“I was looking for the [red-tailed] hawk today. I’m glad we saw the woodpecker.” Ellen Andersen South Elgin resident pean starling, American tree sparrow and, among others, the American goldfinch – species common in Kane County during winter. Before the group set out from the Creek Bend Nature Center, naturalist Ben Katzen said people tend to – incorrectly – believe that birds migrate in the winter because of the cold. But it’s their diet that usually dictates what they do during the winter, he said.

For example, he said, birds that eat insects – flies, mosquitoes – will go elsewhere for the winter while species with more varied diets, such as robins, can be seen during the colder months. With the trees bare, Katzen said, birds should be easier to spot, but he advised the hikers to also use their ears to locate the animals. “I do hear a very familiar bird call,” he said, identifying a chickadee. Because of its small stature, Katzen said, some might wonder how the chickadee survives sub-zero temperatures. Birds can puff up their feathers to keep from freezing, he said. Other birds spotted included a robin and a downy woodpecker that was flitting in and

out of a hole in a tree. “I was looking for the [redtailed] hawk today,” Andersen said. But, she added, “I’m


glad we saw the woodpecker.” Visit for dates and times of future nature programs.

Rockets start fast, hold off North Stars By JAKE POWERS CARPENTERSVILLE – St. Charles North girls basketball coach Sean Masoncup attributed his team’s 53-47 loss to Burlington Central at the Dundee-Crown tournament to the opening sequences of the game. Central jumped out to a 12-2 lead in the first quarter, a deficit that doomed the North Stars, Masoncup said. “I think that the outcome of the game really was determined in the first two minutes,” Masoncup said. “They went on a 12-2 run, and that was the difference in the game.” Central’s Sam Pryor and Shelby Holt hit back-to-back 3-pointers to open up the scoring and spur the Rockets’ run. Holt hit two additional buckets from 3-point range in the first quarter and Pryor added three more points to finish as the only Rockets to score in the quarter. Rockets forward Alison Colby, who finished with nine points, was pleased with her team’s quick start. “Our chemistry right off the bat and our energy was high,” Colby said. “We’ve been lacking that for other games, so that was great.” After entering the second quarter down, 15-7, North put together an 11-4 run to pull within one point of the Rockets. Forward Nichole Davidson was fouled on a strong move to the basket but still hit the layup to spark the run for the North Stars (7-9). She converted the ensuing free throw and then hit a 3-point shot on the next possession to pull get within one. Central’s Pryor answered with a layup and a 3-pointer of her own to end the run, and Holt made an open layup to put the Rockets ahead at the end of half, 27-19. The third quarter mirrored the second perfectly, with each team scoring 12 in both periods. Central (11-1) opened the final quarter up, 39-31, but its lead quickly dwindled to four when North’s Kyla Helsel and

Burlington Central’s Samantha Pryor (center) fights for a loose ball Saturday against St. Charles North’s Ashling Davern (left) and Morgan Rosencrants at the Dundee-Crown girls basketball tournament in Carpentersville. Davidson converted on two early layups. The Rockets countered with a Kayla Ross layup and a Pryor jumpshot from the elbow, and were able to hold on to the lead for the rest of the game. Davidson cut the Central lead to 51-47 with less than 5 seconds left in the game, but a pair of Aly DeTamble free throws iced the victory for the

Rockets. Central coach Mark Smith emphasized his team’s ability to control the tempo of the game for its success. “We want to make sure that we go from side-to-side and make them play defense,” Smith said. “Anybody can come down the floor, make one pass and take a quick shot. We think if you’ve got a quick

shot with one pass, if you make three or four passes you’re going to have an even better shot.” Masconcup expected Central to be a tough matchup, especially given his familiarity with the Rockets’ style of play. “I’ve know Mark for a long time and all of his teams play great defense,” Masoncup said. “That’s what he’s known for

and we know that coming in, and they did that to us.” North’s Davidson led all scorers with 29 points. Helsel’s seven and Morgan Rosencrants’ five rounded out the top scorers for the North Stars. Pryor (18) led the way for the Rockets, followed by Holt (15), Colby (9) and Ross (6). Both teams will continue with consolation play today.

Vikings advance to title game By JAY SCHWAB

of days but I don’t let things get to me like that,” Parrilli said. “I’m not going to shy away if I miss a shot. It’s really just understanding what are good shots and what aren’t. We moved the ball really well tonight, and when you have open shots like that, when you’re getting nice looks, wide open, getting good passes from your teammates, it’s a lot easier to shoot the ball with good passes.” In the first half, Geneva made only 4 of 17 shots from the floor and turned the ball over 10 times, seven more than Neuqua. Yet the Vikings led, 23-21, at halftime thanks largely to their steady flow of free throws. “We’ve got to keep their guys out of the lane,” Neuqua coach Todd Sutton said. “They shredded us all night. We just can’t guard them.” Junior forward Nate Navigato (11 points) and senior guard Justin Durante (10) joined Parrilli in double figures, while Cook scored nine. Geneva capped pool play with a 3-0 mark and advances to today’s championship game against the host Tomcats, who defeated Aurora Central Catholic in Saturday’s nightcap.


Washington, Saints slam opposition By DENNIS D. JACOBS HILLSIDE – Before Saturday morning’s consolation bracket contest in the Proviso West Holiday Tournament, St. Charles East boys basketball coach Pat Woods challenged A.J. Washington to play better than he had in the first two games of the tourney. The 6-foot-5 senior responded in a big way in the Saints’ 70-56 victory over Urban Prep West. “I thought A.J. Washington was a beast today,” Woods said. “Sixteen points, 12 rebounds, three blocks, two assists, two steals – that

was one of his best games, and we needed it.” Woods could have added three jams to the stat line for Washington, which all came at key moments in the game. Washington scored eight of East’s first 11 points. He was fouled trying to put back a rebound with 3:10 left in the first quarter and hit a pair of free throws to tie the game at 11. The Lions (9-2) took advantage of some sloppy ball-handling by the Saints (6-5) and deadly long-range shooting by junior point guard Jaquan Johnson to score the next 18 points of the game. The Saints were up by just two early in the fourth when Washington recorded his

third dunk on an alley-oop pass from Cole Gentry. That started the Saints on a 12-2 run that put the game out of reach. Washington appeared injured after the slam and left the game moments later. “I cramped up a little bit,” Washington said. “I felt it when I went up. I just wanted to come out really quick and get some fluids.” Washington would return, but down the stretch Dom Adduci took control. He scored eight of his 20 points in a span of 47 seconds to put East up, 64-52. The Saints will face Libertyville at 11 a.m. today in the consolation semifinals.

AURORA – The Geneva boys basketball team’s 10-point fourth quarter lead was trimmed to two, and the Vikings’ prospects of making the championship game of the East Aurora Holiday Tournament were growing murky. Vikings senior point guard Cam Cook then lost his balance on an aggressive drive toward the basket, drawing contact while releasing his floater. The whistle sounded, and Cook wasn’t sure what to make of it. “I looked at the ref and I couldn’t really tell what his call was going to be,” Cook said. “I might have thought it was going to be a charge, but my teammates all came around me like ‘That was an and-one.’ That got me pretty pumped up, and I think got my team pumped up.” The moment loomed large in the Vikings’ 60-55 win against Neuqua Valley in Saturday’s pool play finale. The three-point play gave Geneva a 50-45 lead at the 3:10 mark of the fourth quarter. The sight of a Viking shuffling toward the foul line grew

stale for Neuqua (9-3), which watched Geneva (11-3) shoot 31 free throws compared with nine for the Wildcats. Geneva coach Phil Ralston said converting more free throws than the opponents attempted – the Vikings made 23 of them Saturday – is always an objective for his team. “That’s kind of our goal going into it,” Ralston said. “We feel if we can do that in every game, that’s giving us a huge advantage. That’s kind of our philosophy. We want to try and pound that ball inside, and get good driving opportunities.” Geneva’s senior guards finished off the Wildcats in the closing minutes. Cook buried a 3-pointer to make it 5345 with 2:43 to play, and after four straight Neuqua points brought the Wildcats within 53-49, Cook snared his lone offensive rebound of the night to keep a possession alive that resulted in two Chris Parrilli free throws to bump the margin to six. Parrilli scored what he believed to be a career high 24 points on the night, including a trio of 3-pointers. “I haven’t been shooting the ball terrific the past couple

The problem isn’t that you make more money than your boyfriend does; it’s that he doesn’t have enough self-confidence to believe that someone could love him just for himself. Some men feel that in order for them to affirm their masculinity, they have to bring in the bigger paycheck. You might point out that when he says those things, it hurts your feelings because it implies that all you care about is money, you have poor values and are for sale to the highest bidder. But until HE is able to recognize all that he has to offer, there’s nothing more you can do. Dear Abby: My wife and I are starting to hate our older daughter. After dropping out of college, she moved home to “save some money.” Since then, she has

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips lived as she pleases. She isn’t saving money and is contributing nothing toward her support. We have given her a deadline to move out and will hold to it. But her slovenly ways, sullen attitude and disregard for rules have created such a toxic atmosphere we’re afraid our relationship is forever changed. Abby, this is not the daughter we raised! What do we do? – Sad Dad Out West Dear Sad Dad: Your letter raises more questions than I can answer. Why did your daughter drop out of college? Does she have a job? Where is her money going if she’s not saving it or contributing to the household? Does she have a drug problem? Emotional problems? If this isn’t the girl you raised, there has to be a reason for it. Rather than hating her for her behavior, what you should be doing is finding out what’s causing it. Dear Abby: I was invited with four close friends to a “goodbye” tea at the request of a dying friend. Her four children were hostesses and had issued the phone call invitation the day before. My friend is still alive. Is it necessary and proper to write a thank-you, and to whom? – Bewildered In Phoenix Dear Bewildered: Write a short thank-you note to the person who called you. If your friend is still well enough to understand it, write another one to her, expressing that you appreciated being able to spend the time with her and that you were honored to have been invited. That’s what I’d do. • Write Dear Abby at

Dear Abby: I’m a 23-yearold woman in a fantastic relationship with a man two years older. I could fill volumes with all the things I love about him. My problem is I make more money than he does. He earns a good living and is a hard worker, but he constantly says things like, “You’re going to leave me for someone who makes more money than I do,” or, “Your parents don’t think I’m good enough for you because I didn’t go to college.” Abby, my parents don’t care about that. They adore him because they see how happy he makes me. I don’t care that I earn more. The way I look at it, eventually when we’re married, our finances will be combined. I have tried telling him this and convincing him that I love him for all his qualities, but he doesn’t believe me. Is there anything else I can do? – Head Over Heels In Portland, Ore.

Chosen the best play of the year



As 2013 comes to a close, let’s recognize the deal that was chosen by the International Bridge Press Association panel for its Keri Klinger Memorial Declarer Play of the Year award. Appropriately, it was played by the top-ranked player in the world, Fulvio Fantoni. He was born in Italy, but now represents Monaco. The journalist prize went to Toine van Hoof from the Netherlands. How did Fantoni make six hearts after West led the club queen to declarer’s ace? Fantunes (as Fantoni and his partner, Claudio Nunes, are known) play an unusual system in which one-level opening bids are natural and unlimited. North’s three-heart raise was pre-emptive. East then produced a revealing takeout double. South made two control-bids (cue-bids), and North jumped to the slam. Fantoni felt that East had 4-0-5-4 or 4-0-4-5 distribution with the four honors he actually held. Trusting his reading of the position, at trick two, Fantoni played a low heart to dummy’s seven! When East discarded a diamond, declarer continued with the club 10, pitching a diamond from his hand. West won with his jack and returned a trump. South won with dummy’s 10 and led the club nine, covered by the king and ruffed with the heart queen. Then two rounds of trumps ending on the board squeezed East, not that it mattered. Declarer discarded a diamond and a spade on the eight and six of clubs before taking the marked spade finesse to land his slam. Terrific.
