Runners brave snow, ice during Geneva 5K race

GENEVA – Mother Nature threw some challenges at Batavia High School sophomore Megan DalSanto on Sunday as she participated in the Geneva Park District’s fourth annual Super Bowl Shuffle 5K. “Some hills were hard to get up because of the snow and ice,” she said. “The trails were a little slippery, but they did a good job getting most of the snow off.” DalSanto was one of more than 500 participants in the race, which took them around Peck Farm Park in Geneva. Cold temperatures greeted her after Saturday’s snowfall, but DalSanto said she was prepared. “I wore three layers of clothing,” she said. “It wasn’t too cold.” Despite less than ideal conditions, DalSanto said she finished the race in 27 minutes, 30 seconds, beating last year’s time of 33 minutes. “I’m training with my brother to do a marathon,”

she said. Watching proudly was her mother, Kim DalSanto. “I’ve been with her at every single run,” she said. “I’m very proud of her when she crosses the finish line, no matter what her time is.” Laura Newman and her husband, Steve Newman, of Batavia, were stretching their legs after the race. “I was really excited to get back to running,” Laura Newman said. “This is my first time running in two years. I’ve had a couple of foot injuries. I did better than I thought I would, just under 33 minutes.” Steve Newman was prepared for the cold temperatures, dressing in a thermal shirt and a sweatshirt. “As long as you dressed right, you didn’t feel the cold,” he said. “They make such good gear now.” The both of them were ready to relax a little at the post-game celebration at the Stephen D. Persinger Recreation Center. “Bring on the nachos,” Steve Newman said.

woolens of a 16th century landsknechte – German for servant or knight of the land who fought in wars from 1475 and 1535. “They were soldiers who would be raised by a local barony or duchy, they would fight for a season and then they would go back to their lives, whether they were peasants, or millers or local townspeople,” Shellenbean said. “They would muster in early in the spring and spend a month or two months training before going out and fighting. They would be fighting either specific wars or sometimes they would be hired out to other duchies or other countries to fight on their behalf.” Shellenbean’s clothing includes heavily cut sleeves, pants and shirt that were known as puff and slash. The clothing was predominantly wool and linen, first cut to allow soldiers to move more easily while fighting, then it became a style so the bottom layers of color would show through the top layers, he said. Generally, they fought with a 14- to 20-foot spear called a

pike used against cavalry. “They would fight in blocks of 300 to 400 men with these huge spears, and they were like a moving pointy wall – like a fortress on the battlefield,” Shellenbean said. “Horses would charge and get drilled. Pretty messy stuff.” Martin Shaw of Plainfield wore the uniform of France from the period of 1789 to 1815, with its blue sleeves, red cuffs and collar, white center and blue hat of the 21st Legion. The character he created, Charles Chevelier, serves in the French Army. “I am at this event to portray a French revolutionary, a Napoleonic soldier of Napoleon’s Grand Army,” Shaw said. Shaw said he is writing a series that takes place in 1806 in the Fourth Coalition where the French defeated the Prussians. “Napoleonic history has always interested me,” Shaw said. “And since I’m writing it, I felt I had to become a soldier of this era to get the feel for it. My character does infantry and cavalry. I have a friend who says one of these days,

he’ll let me ride a horse and get that feeling as well.” Snow Wolf Wagner of Ontario said he belongs to the Ojibwa and Oddawa tribes. For this event, he dressed as an 1760s warrior in the French and Indian War period. His nephew, Nagamootawa Kaik Kaik of Indianapolis, wore what the Ojibwa and Shawnee would have worn, and friend Steve Horrall of Monroe City, Ind., dressed as Potawatomi, both for the War of 1812. With leggings, boots, feathers and nose rings, Wagner said they did their research to be as authentic as possible. “The Potawatomi, the Ojibwa and the Oddawa were one tribe, one confederation known as The Three Fires,”

Wagner said. “The reason we do this is partially because people don’t understand that the native people are still here ... and the native portrayals are done so poorly,” Wagner said. “What we’ve done is go to these events and portray how we would have lived 200 years ago. We want to make sure our side of the history is being taught.” History buff Todd Ratliff of Bartlett said he enjoyed the show with its emphasis on history. “I enjoy World War II history, and there’s a lot of that here,” Ratliff said. “There’s also a lot of very interesting historical and period pieces and people who come from all over the country. It’s a unique show.”

ST. CHARLES – Roman swords, Civil War muskets, helmets and boots from World Wars I and II came together this weekend at a three-day Military History Fest at Pheasant Run in St. Charles. Director Mike Bollow said between vendors and the public, about 1,500 people attended Saturday. The oldest re-enactments date from Roman times, the newest is the Gulf War, he said. “What’s nice about this event is it’s the only time all re-enactors from various time periods come together,” Bollow said. “Because every traditional re-enactment is only Colonial or only World War II or only Civil War. We see that the things that are similar between our hobbies are actually greater than the things that divide us.” In addition to vendors selling period garb and artifacts spanning centuries of human conflict, enthusiasts and re-enactors in painstakingly accurate, detailed uniforms were everywhere, a kind of wartime see and be seen event. Perhaps the most historically recognizable was Abraham Lincoln, actually Max Daniels, a re-enactor and educator from Wheaton. “I think there are several ways of learning history, obviously,” Daniels said. “Through textbooks, through visuals. But I think another alternative way is visualization by personalization. If you can actually talk to the person – I think that is also a very good way to learn. What my wife and I do, as living historians, is go to schools and let the children learn by talking to the persons that we represent.” Susan Spencer of Ontario, Canada, wore the blue dress uniform of a Canadian Nursing Sister serving in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps in World War I. “They were not allowed on the battlefield,” Spencer said. “They were support to the doctors who were on the battlefield, the stretcher-bearers and medics.” Stephen Shellenbean of Merrimack, N.H., was clad in the feathered hat and scored

LARKIN 62, ST. CHARLES NORTH 55

North Stars unable to delay Royal coronation By JAY SCHWAB jschwab@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – The Larkin boys basketball team quashed all suspense in the Upstate Eight Conference River race by the first night of February, and now there is no doubt which team is the clear favorite once the 4A St. Charles North Regional starts next month. Playing on that same floor Saturday night, Larkin cemented its status as back-toback UEC River champions, building an 18-point lead before holding off North, 62-55. Both St. Charles schools will be among the leading contenders to upset Larkin when postseason play begins. But after the Royals won Thursday at East and Saturday at North to earn regular season sweeps against both schools, Larkin has earned the status as prohibitive favorites. “If we have the target on our backs, that’s fine,” Larkin coach Deryn Carter said. “But when the ball’s thrown up, all teams go for it, so we’ll see come regional time.” For now, the Royals (18-3, 9-0 UEC River) have a more certain championship to celebrate, which they did heartily in the locker room after the game. Larkin clinched at least a share of the title, but another outright crown is a virtual certainty with three home conference games remaining. “Back-to-back doing that, two years in a row, from where this program was five years ago when we all came together, I don’t ever want them to take that for granted, you know what I mean,” Carter said. “We get really low when we lose, but you’ve got to get really high, then, when you win, and I just wanted to make sure our guys knew the magnitude of what they did for our school and our program, winning back-to-back conference championships.” Although North (12-7, 6-3 UEC River) made up substantial ground in the second half, Larkin could smell the conference championship-clincher by halftime, when it led, 34-20. Senior forward Brayden Royse – usually not an offensive focal

“We were playing just, like, street ball – we weren’t playing as a team.” Erik Miller St. Charles North forward halftime warmups, and after a Kendale McCullum-to-Christian Negron alley-oop dunk to begin the third quarter, the Royals led by 18. The North Stars played much better the rest of the way, even coming within five points twice in the final two minutes, but chasing 18 points against a team of Larkin’s caliber is almost guaranteed to end badly. “We were playing just, like, street ball – we weren’t playing as a team,” North forward Erik Miller said of Larkin’s ability to build a large lead. “Like I said, bad shots, I know me, personally. But that second half, if we play like that the whole game, I think we’re unstoppable.” Miller (14 points, 11 rebounds) helped North make inroads, as did senior guard Alec Goetz, who also scored 14, and reserve forward Camden Cotter, who made a 3-pointer to cut Larkin’s lead to 55-49 with 2:14 to play. Miller played one of his best games of the season against a team that he has suffered injuries while competing in football and basketball. “I would say I guess I have a grudge against [Larkin],” Miller said. “And they are winning the conference right now. I felt myself, I needed to step up, get some boards, do whatever we needed to have the team win.” McCullum scored a gamehigh 20 points while Negron continued his impressive freshman season with 13 points and 12 rebounds. Larkin beat North by seven Erik Anderson for Shaw Media two days after a nine-point win St. Charles North’s Alec Goetz puts a shot during the first quarter of the game Saturday at St. Charles North at East. High School in St. Charles. The Royals defeated the North Stars, 62-55. “We’re all very proud of ourpoint for the balanced Royals would like to have shooting, shooting contested shots. I selves,” Negron said. “We had – made a trio of 3-pointers in even though he’s a quality might have been able to make a lot of guys beat up as well, the second quarter as Larkin basketball player, we’d rath- those, he was so open.” and both [St. Charles schools] created separation. er have him shooting,” North North’s midgame woes were are really good, so it just means “Out of everyone on that coach Tom Poulin said of compounded by a technical foul a lot for us to come out and win team, that’s kind of who you Royse. “But we’d like him for touching the rim during on the road, as well.”

Geneva’s Pace Temple drives around St. Charles East’s Dom Adduci during Saturday’s game in St. Charles. Geneva won, 67-49. and 11th points. Geneva’s student section also joined in the fun, chanting “WE CAN’T SEE YOU!” at its East counterparts late in the first quarter on camouflage night. The Saints’ frustration surfaced moments later. Referees whistled East forward AJ Washington for a technical foul early in the second quarter after he taunted Chris Parrilli upon blocking his 3-point attempt from the right baseline. Geneva’s Nate Navigato scored 13 of his game-high 18 points in the first half. His final offensive contribution, a dunk with 6:06 to play, sent the bench and Vikings backers into a frenzy. Geneva otherwise strived to keep a low-key approach to the game. Ralston credited assistants Rob Wicinski and Scott Hennig for hatching the idea to “make it a business trip,” especially on the heels of East’s 67-51 win at Geneva in mid-December. The team switched its pregame routine around and beelined for the bus shortly after the final whistle, as if scurrying to catch a flight home. Mike Landi (13 points) and Pace Temple (12) also finished in double figures for the Vikings, who have struggled with the Saints in recent

seasons. Landi often capitalized on a handful of Geneva’s 19 offensive rebounds, while Temple struck largely in transition. “We were just fluid today,” Cook said. “We really had everything going for us.” The Saints had the opposite lament. Coach Pat Woods took the blame for the slow start, as he started East in a little-used 2-3 zone with an eye on diversifying the team for the postseason. Larkin, 9-0 in the River, clinched at least a share of the conference title Saturday and knocked off East for the second time Thursday. “We’re just not together yet offensively – today,” Woods said. “We’ve had glimpses of it in the past, obviously. We’ve put a lot of points on the board. But again, some of that flow is stimulated by our defense, and we didn’t have that today.” Gentry felt the team lacked something else. “We’re disappointed. We don’t think we had enough pride tonight,” he said. “Because Geneva is a neighboring town, that’s a game you want to win no matter what your record is, what time of season it is. At this point, we’ve got to keep improving, keep getting wins and then move onto regionals.”

ST. CHARLES – Guards Dom Adduci and Cole Gentry conspired on a handful off oohand ahh-inducing moments for St. Charles East boys basketball fans Saturday night. Those stretches aside, they still were left to ponder an Upstate Eight Conference River Division loss to Geneva that seldom was close. If the Vikings couldn’t be perfect in a 67-49 road victory, they approached something similar in limiting Adduci and Gentry to 21 combined points and a joint 9-for-23 effort from the field. “They kind of got control. They played their tempo,” Gentry said. “So then we’re chasing 10 points early and we’re playing their tempo. Trying to get up and down, but they’re not letting us.” Geneva (17-4, 6-3 UEC River) remained mathematically alive in the conference race by pestering the Saints’ top scorers. A 41-15 rebounding advantage paid dividends, too. When Adduci and Gentry shared the floor, the Vikings played a 3-2 zone. When either player was out, Geneva coach Phil Ralston called for the 1-3 “chase,” which Gentry likened to a box-and-one. “What makes it effective is they don’t really touch the ball as much,” Geneva senior point guard Cam Cook said. “They’re getting less looks. They’ve got to give it to other players on the team. So we try to take their best player out and let the other team go to work for them.” Considering reserve guard Jake Asquini scored eight points to match Adduci – Gentry had a team-high 13 – mission accomplished. East (12-10, 6-4) struggled on 7-for-22 shooting in the first half. The team remained in single digits until a Gentry layup with 3:22 left before halftime gave the Saints their 10th

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips If so, what could help people communicate better regardless of age? – Concerned Son In Colorado Dear Son: Not everyone in their 90s ages the same way. Some individuals are still active; others are less so. When seniors stop driving, there can be a tendency for them to become isolated and depressed. Others may be taking medications that affect their memory. A way to help people in your mother’s age group would be to see that they have transportation to a senior center, where they can mingle face-to-face if they wish. I recommend this for your mother and her friends because I’m sure none of them are being deliberately cruel. Dear Abby: I am an addict of Turner Classic Movies and wondered how those handsome actors and beautiful actresses control their libido during passionate love scenes. Or is there more to it than appears? – Film Buff In Encinitas, Calif. Dear Film Buff: Generally speaking, what an audience sees on the screen isn’t an amorous encounter. Every gesture has been carefully choreographed. There may be a lot more acting than passion involved. (That’s why it’s called acting.) Remember, there is a director and there can be a crew of as many as 30 people standing around. Of course, there are always exceptions – Liz Taylor and Richard Burton would be one of them, and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie would be another. • Write Dear Abby at www.dearabby.com.

The Argyle Sweater

Dear Abby: One of my childhood friends got married at a young age. She’s now expecting and due in a few months. Every day she messages me on Facebook about something else her husband has done to cause her emotional stress. For example, a few weeks ago she found flirtatious erotic messages he had exchanged with another girl. I want to help her because we have been friends for so long. We’re both 19, and I feel I should know how to help her, but since I’ve never been married I don’t know what to say. Any advice? – Friend In Kentucky Dear Friend: What a sad situation. Your friend is married to someone who apparently doesn’t want to be married – and it’s open to question whether he will be much of a parent. If she has family, she should talk to them about this because she may need their help soon. She should also make plans for how she will support herself and the child, because her husband appears to be a flake. Please pass this advice along. And let this be a lesson to you about the importance of achieving independence before assuming the responsibility of parenthood. Dear Abby: My mother is in her mid-90s. Several of her lifelong friends, widows, still live in their own homes, as she does. However, they no longer drive. A phone call would help them communicate directly with each other about life situations, but it doesn’t seem to happen. Instead of calling and talking to each other, they hear about each other third-hand. Is it typical for the elderly to abandon each other and be so cruel?

SOLUTION

CELEBRITY CIPHER

Rene Descartes, a French philosopher, mathematician and writer who spent most of his life in the Dutch Republic and died in 1650, said in a lecture, “And now we come to the two operations of our understanding, intuition and deduction, on which alone we have said we must rely in the acquisition of knowledge.” At the bridge table, we gain an understanding of a deal primarily by using deduction – although some players also employ intuition. If you wish to test your deductive powers, cover the West and South hands. The contract is three no-trump. West leads a fourth-highest heart two and declarer calls for dummy’s four. Would you put in the 10 or rise with the king? Why? This is a trap deal for North and South. They have 29 highcard points, but cannot, in theory, make game. However, if any game is going to get through, it is three no-trump. Often, when dummy has the heart queen and East the king-10 over her, it is right for East to play his 10. But not in this instance. If South is permitted to take the first trick with his heart jack, he will then cash four clubs, four diamonds and the spade ace to score up an overtrick. It is right to play the 10 when South has the ace, but is that possible? No! If South had started with ace-low in hearts, he would have called for dummy’s queen, hoping the lead was away from the king. So, East should play his king at the first trick, confident it will win, then return the five, his original fourth-highest. The defenders will run the suit for down one.
