Police continue to investigate a fatal crash that took place about 7:30 a.m. Monday on Keslinger Road, west of Harley Road.

Crash claims life of Kaneville Township man

BLACKBERRY TOWN SHIP – Only a few days ago, Kaneville Township resident Burton Brown had gone to a fish fry event with friends. On Monday, one of the friends said she was shocked to hear Brown, 68, had died as a result of a car crash. Celeste Anderson, a Batavia resident, said she had known Brown for years, and called him a “very kind-hearted person” who had “a very tender heart.” “When you got a hug from Burt, you knew you got a hug,” Anderson said. Brown died Monday morning in a head-on crash that took place about 7:30 a.m. on Keslinger Road, near the intersection of Harley Road, according to a news release

drove to Geneva most days to work out at the Geneva Park District facilities. She said he kept active and enjoyed reading. She said she was among friends who went out for a fish fry regularly on Friday nights with Brown. She said she had known him a long time, since Brown’s wife once had been a roommate of Anderson’s sister. She said Brown was active with Boy Scouts, and his son, Adam – now a student at Marquette University, earned the rank of Eagle Scout. Keslinger Road was closed between Harley and Denali

roads until about 10:30 a.m. Monday while the crash was investigated. Lt. Pat Gengler, spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said it didn’t appear weather was a factor, and it was not immediately known whether either driver was traveling at an excessive speed. He also said the road was not particularly congested during the time of the crash. The Kane County Coroner’s Office issued a news release, stating that an autopsy had been conducted, and that it is awaiting autopsy findings to establish a preliminary cause of death.

Aldermen prefer moving historic house By CHARLES MENCHACA cmenchaca@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – A city committee Monday was in favor of moving a historic home to a site different than the one preferred by an ad-hoc committee of residents. The Government Services Committee voted 8-1 in favor of relocating the Jones Law Office house from its current

Jones Law Office house would move to Langum Park site at 302 Cedar Avenue to Langum Park near Route 25 and Devereaux Way. Fifth Ward Alderman Maureen Lewis voted against the motion. Lewis said she was torn after listening Monday to resident Pat Pretz’s presentation on the house. Pretz preferred

that the home be located along the west side of North 5th Avenue, north of the bridge over the railroad property. “I’m glad it’s safe, I just don’t feel it’s appropriate,” Pretz said of the Langum Park site. “It’s a happy ending, at least it will be somewhere.” Pretz wanted the North 5th

Avenue site because it still would have been located within the city’s Historic District. Ira Minard built the home in 1842 and was purchased by Steven Sandborn Jones in 1843, according to the St. Charles Historical Museum. Aldermen on the committee were concerned about

parking and residents having to cross Route 25 or Fifth Avenue, for the alternate site. Committee members also voted 9-0 in favor of using money from the city’s reserves to pay for the cost of moving the home. An initial estimate to move the home was $73,000, give or take $10,000, said Peter Suhr, the city’s public works director.

Aldermen OK new liquor license for Geneva chamber’s festivals By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – The Geneva Chamber of Commerce will now be able to get one liquor license to cover five festivals in a year, as aldermen approved a new classification of license Monday. Aldermen acting as the committee of the whole unanimously recommended approval of the amendment to its liquor code, creating the Class E-6 Geneva Chamber of Commerce Liquor License. The City Council must

take final action before the amendment goes into effect. The chamber will sponsor a craft beer garden, new to this year’s Swedish Days festival in June, so the chamber asked for a change to accommodate a new license classification. This new liquor classification was proposed to accommodate the sale and consumption of wine and beer at events during festivals sponsored by the chamber, officials said. The new classification will allow for the retail sale of beer and/or wine by the

chamber in connection with city festivals. The license is good for a maximum of five festivals during any fiscal year and only by the chamber. It will cost $100 a festival, according to the amendment. “The new liquor license is basically like a package,” said 1st Ward Alderman Mike Bruno, acting as mayor pro tem during Mayor Kevin Burns’ absence. “Since they’re so active. It streamlines things a lot in terms of them not having to appear continually” for each festival.

Batavia businesses changing hands By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – Downtown Batavia is seeing some changes with the sale of O’Brien’s Pub and Grill and attempts to fill the building that previously housed Fantastico restaurant. City Administrator Bill McGrath has told aldermen

that O’Brien’s, 12 N. River St., is being sold and that the new operator, Fox River Bar & Grill LLC, would have to apply for a liquor license. The new owners currently own an establishment in Naperville, McGrath said. O’Brien’s owner Casey O’Brien could not be reached for comment Monday. At the same time, the

building at 227 W. Wilson St. in downtown Batavia that formerly housed Fantastico restaurant, still is being marketed. The restaurant closed several weeks ago. Fantastico reopened for business in November 2012 after being closed for more than a year. At that time, owner Sam

Abdelnour said he closed the restaurant because he needed to take a break after 14 years in business. The restaurant previously had been on North River Street until the move to its Wilson Street location in 2006. Abdelnour could not be reached for comment about the restaurant’s recent closing. Gary Morgan, business

broker with Naper Realty, said he has received a few inquiries about the building. Batavia Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Holly Deitchman said she doesn’t know if restaurant use is the best fit for the building. “I could see a retail store or a bakery going in there,” she said.

The Batavia Chamber currently has 283 members. “That means more people can come together to share ideas and better each other,” Deitchman said. The Batavia Women in Business group is an active part of the Batavia Chamber, and sponsors luncheons that feature different guest speakers. “We do lots of events to educate our members,” she said. Information about the Batavia Chamber of Commerce is available by going to www. bataviachamber.org.

The evening will begin with a short presentation in the orientation barn titled, “How Big is our Solar System.” Then participants will head outside to see the moon, Jupiter, Mars and Saturn through

• Tuesday, April 29, 2014

BATAVIA – As the new executive director of the Batavia Chamber of Commerce, Holly Deitchman said she wants to make the organization even more of a resource for local businesses. “We have lots to offer to the community, and we want to continue to offer so much more,” Deitchman said Sunday to members of Batavia United Methodist Church. Deitchman spoke as part of the church’s monthly program to have different community members or organizations speak at the church. The program began in January. “It’s connecting the church with the community,” said Deb Mengler, the church’s di-

rector of Christian education. “It’s educating the congregation about what is going on in the community.” Deitchman started as the Batavia Chamber’s executive director in February after the resignation of Roger Breisch, who led the chamber for almost 10 years. She had been the station manager of BATV since July 2008. A Batavia resident for 12 years, Deitchman has been involved in the community since moving here. “I definitely wanted to be a person that was part of the community, not just a resident,” she said. As the Batavia Chamber’s new executive director, Deitchman said she hopes the chamber can provide even more networking opportuni-

Police: Woman faces prostitution charge after compliance inspection By CHARLES MENCHACA cmenchaca@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – A woman was charged with prostitution Friday after the St. Charles Police Department conducted a massage license compliance inspection at Blue Sky, 1700 Lincoln Highway, Suite J. At 1:15 p.m. Friday, an undercover officer entered the business, paid for – and was provided – a 30-minute massage from the lone female employee, according to a St. Charles police news release. After completing the massage, the female – Hui Zhang, 41, of Chicago – negotiated with the officer to perform a sexual act for an additional $60, the release states. Zhang took steps toward performing the act, at which point the officer advised he would not go through with it and proceeded

to exit the business, the release said. Zhang was arrested and charged with prostitution immediately afterward without incident by members of an operation surveillance team. Zhang posted $150 cash bond and was released, pending a court appearance at 9 Hui Zhang a.m. May 15 at Kane County Branch Court in St. Charles. This is the second prostitution-related arrest in St. Charles this month. On April 17, Chang-Li Wang, 47, was charged with two Class A misdemeanors, prostitution and violation of the massage licensing act, following an incident at H.H. Health Care Therapy, 525 S. Tyler Road, Unit O.

The April 17 arrest was the result of a citizen’s complaint about possible suspicious activity at the business, police said. It is not related to Friday’s arrest, said Lisa Blackwell, St. Charles police spokeswoman. “Just like tobacco and liquor compliance checks, we do massage parlor checks routinely, and it’s an ongoing task our department does,” Blackwell said. Anyone can report suspicious activity at a business or elsewhere to St. Charles police at 630-377-4435. Confidential information may be submitted via the city of St. Charles website under the Drug & Crime Tip Hotline link, or by calling 866-378-4267. “If you’re going to frequent a massage place, make sure it’s reputable,” Blackwell said.

Kostelny seeks recount in judge race loss to Tegeler By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com AURORA – There was no change in vote totals between Kane County Associate Judge Marmarie Kostelny and himself, D.J. Tegeler said Monday, after the Aurora Election Commission conducted a discovery recount of two precincts in the March 18 Republican primary. Kostelny filed a recount petition after she lost to Tegeler by seven votes in the 16th Judicial Circuit, third sub-circuit. A second recount will be held next week at the Kane County Clerk’s office in Geneva. Aurora Election Commission officials were not available

to comment on the outcome of the recount, but Tegeler, who was there, reported there was no change in the totals. “Every vote counts and it’s a wonderful civics lesson,” Tegeler, a Geneva attorney, said. Kostelny did not return a voice mail message seeking comment.

Tegeler and Kostelny were both seeking a vacancy that will be left by Judge Karen Simpson, who plans to retire Oct. 6. Associate judges are appointed, and circuit judges are elected. According to the Illinois State Board of Elections official certified results of their race, Kostelny got 6,213 and Tegeler got 6,220, a difference of seven votes, based on results provided by the Kane County Clerk and the Aurora Election Commission. Tegeler received 433 votes and Kostelny received 502 in Aurora, records show. Because Kostelny received votes equal to at least 95 percent of those received by Tege-

ler, state law provides that votes in specific precincts may be recounted. According to a similar petition Kostelny filed with the Kane County Clerk, 16 precincts will be recounted in Sugar Grove, Rutland, Blackberry, Plato, Campton, Hampshire and Elgin townships. This discovery recount will be from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. May 5 to May 7 at the Kane County Clerk’s office, Building B in the Government Center, 719 S. Batavia Ave., Geneva. A lunch period will be from noon to 1 p.m. each day. “They will hand-count them through the paper trail. They

will take that paper trail and go through those votes, looking at bar codes to see how they voted,” Cunningham said. “The real problem here is with early voting. Some in the sub-circuit could have voted at the early voting sites. We have to find those ballots that were cast there.” Cunningham said his staff would work three stations, one for regular voting, one for early votes and one for absentee and write-in votes. Democrat and Republican judges also will participate, he said. “I’m sure we’ll get through it,” Cunningham said.

TriCity Family Services held its 25th annual fundraising dinner Saturday to support its ongoing mission of providing affordable mental health services to Batavia, Geneva and St. Charles.

Nearly 500 attend TriCity Family Services dinner By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – The Friends of TriCity Family Services hosted its 25th Annual Silver Linings Benefit and Auction fundraiser Saturday with a packed crowd of nearly 500 supporters at the Lincoln Inn Banquets in Batavia. The annual event raises funds for the agency, which provides affordable counseling and other mental health services for children, teens and families, and never denies services based on an inability to pay. TriCity Family Services is in its 47th year. “We are a family-centered mental health and wellness center,” said Jim DiCiaula of St. Charles, president of the TriCity Family Services board. “What’s important to me is the fact that we are reaching out, trying to reach our children and teens to identify mental health issues early in the journey, so that we really can help them ... and their families really adapt and not have to struggle as much as they can if you

“... They’re responding to the call that we need to reach our kids, and you don’t have to walk alone.” Jim DiCiaula President of TriCity Family Services board identify it early.” DiCiaula said mental health is on a spectrum and when people talk about mental health – they’re thinking about it on the far end – when it really should be on the front end. “It’s common cold or the flu and we want to help them in the early stages to really make them viable human beings,” DiCiaula said. The fact that so many people attended and that the tickets sold out are important to note, DiCiaula said, reflecting several things that happened over the last year. “We’ve really built awareness in the community about

mental health and wellness. I was the co-chair of the [St. Charles] District 303 Mental Health Program. We partnered this year to really bring the awareness in our community and getting out there and talking to people about mental health and wellness,” DiCiaula said. “I think this means there’s a lot more [people who] would be here if they actually knew. They’re responding to the call that we need to reach our kids, and you don’t have to walk alone.” The agency also presented three Golden Heart Awards to longtime philanthropic supporters Judy and Dudley Burgess, the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley and the Congregational Church of Batavia. The award is given to individuals or couples, a company or foundation and a community group or organization, to recognize champions of compassionate, accessible mental health care in the Geneva, Batavia and St. Charles communities.

OPINIONS ANOTHER VIEW

U.S. Postal Service and ceding Saturdays THE WASHINGTON POST Even if election-year politics were not paralyzing Congress, it would be hard to pass a major reform of the U.S. Postal Service. Heaven knows the USPS needs an overhaul. It’s losing customers and billions of dollars per year, in part because electronic communication has rendered its traditional business model – first-class mail – obsolescent. Yet postal unions, bulk mailers, rural communities and other “stakeholders,” as special-interest groups are known in

Washington, have lobbied successfully against change. It was in that depressing context that Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House committee that oversees the Postal Service, heard testimony this month on the President Barack Obama administration’s ideas for reform. Among the points Brian C. Deese, deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget, made was that the president favors a phase-out of Saturday mail delivery, along with greater use of curbside mail delivery, as the president

proposed in his fiscal 2015 budget. Taken together, such streamlined delivery would save the USPS $500 million a year, Mr. Deese testified. That’s not nearly enough, by itself, to rectify the Postal Service’s financial problems, but it’s not chump change, either. More important, perhaps, ending Saturday delivery is one of the few substantial reforms that enjoys widespread, bipartisan support. Obama wants it. Issa is in favor. A Senate committee has already passed a bill, by a vote of 9 to 1, that would

allow the USPS to end Saturday delivery. Last but certainly not least, the American public seems quite willing to sacrifice Saturday mail in the cause of postal solvency. That’s the consistent finding of public opinion polls, including a February 2013 Gallup survey showing that 63 percent of Americans support a Saturday phase-out. Given the availability of text messaging and email – and given that the USPS would continue to deliver packages on Saturday – it would be surprising if the

surveys came out differently. Opponents of postal reform are setting themselves against this widespread, common-sense sentiment. Issa is said to be interested in moving a postal bill through his committee this year. Certainly the Senate’s action and the White House’s position are auspicious signs. The more tightly that reform legislation can focus on the areas of consensus, specifically including an end to Saturday delivery, the greater the chances it can succeed.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR A new requirement To the Editor: As of Jan. 1, Illinois requires that all sixth- and 12thgrade students receive a meningococcal vaccination. This necessitates adding it to the current list of vaccines pharmacists can administer to those 10 to 13 years of age and older without a prescription. Those in Illinois’ most rural and underserved areas often have access to a pharmacy, but may have limited access to a doctor’s office or clinic. For those living in medically underserved areas, pharmacists are of critical importance in preventative care, serving as their nearest health care professional and provider. The need for pharmacists will continue to grow even further in these areas. The Association of American Medical Colleges Center for Workforce Studies recently reported that America will face a shortage of more than 90,000 doctors by 2020. This shortfall will most greatly impact the Americans who live in rural or inner-city locations designated as medically underserved areas. Students who are required to be vaccinated should have ready access through a visit to their local pharmacy. Current Illinois statute already permits qualified pharmacists to administer the flu vaccination; pharmacists stand ready to assist Illinois families with this new mandate. Garth Reynolds, RPh Executive director of the Illinois Pharmacists Association

PREP TRACK AND FIELD

Controlling the chaos of track Well-run track meet requires immense planning, organization By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com

“If you’ve done your job properly as a host school, it should look like it’s very easy to run a meet, if you know what I mean. But boy if there aren’t just hours and hours and hours of meticulous planning that goes on to make sure that everything you’re doing runs smoothly.” Mike Schmidt, Burlington Central boys track and ield coach

• Tuesday, April 29, 2014

S

uccessful track and field meets signify a marriage between several entities, so Burlington Central boys coach Mike Schmidt logically offers this comparison: “Almost like a wedding, you know,” Schmidt said. “You probably assume a little something is going to go wrong, but you certainly don’t want anything major to go wrong.” Many passive elements must pass muster before athletes test themselves and dazzle crowds. That data entry plus phone calls plus emailing equals seamless running, jumping, hurdling and throwing isn’t a precise equation, although it’s close. “If you’ve done your job properly as a host school, it should look like it’s very easy to run a meet, if you know what I mean,” Schmidt said. “But boy if there aren’t just hours and hours and hours of meticulous planning that go on to make sure that everything you’re doing runs smoothly.” Kaneland boys coach Eric Baron arrived at his home track around 5:30 a.m. Saturday for the Knights’ Peterson Prep Invitational, which did not officially begin until field events started at 10 a.m. The meet ended around 3 p.m. The stadium gradually emptied, just not the agenda. As Baron grinned through the fatigue, he worked just

change zones and field event areas. Announcer Alison Digan, a graduating senior at Aurora University, was fulfilling her final duty as an unpaid intern in the Kaneland athletic department. The awards distributors were volunteers from the girls program, which will host the girls Kane County Meet on Friday. Lower-level or noncompeting athletes assisted where they were needed, raking jump pits, placing and removing hurdles or pulling tape measures. It’s a rite of passage upperclassmen credit for their confidence in later years. “Everyone’s all together,” said Batavia senior Clayton Siemsen, recalling the program’s annual Les Hodge Invitational each April. “The track team.

New rules won’t faze Batavia Can a Batavia football player still feast when his summer itinerary doesn’t include tackling? Dennis Piron, coach of the reigning Class 6A state champion Bulldogs and their #letseat offseason training moniker, offers a short answer: Absolutely. Recent IHSA rules prohibiting tackling and full-pad drills in the five weeks before two-a-day workouts usher in the beginning of the season each August hardly faze Batavia. “When I read through it, I go, ‘OK, we don’t have to change a thing, guys,’ ” Piron said. “It’s what our program already looks like, so we’re in good shape.” Piron suspects many coaches across the state are finding the same to be true. One of his nearest counterparts, Marmion’s Dan Thorpe, can confirm. “That didn’t impact us at all,” Thorpe said. “I’ve been under the Bill Walsh philosophy for 20-something years of fresh legs and fresh bodies and fresh minds. In June, we were just in T-shirts and shorts. And then July we were helmets and shoulder pads for two weeks. And that was it. We never put kids to the ground.

QUICK READ Kevin Druley “And I’ve been ridiculed by parents and players for that philosophy, but we’ve tackled just as good as anybody else. I’ll tell you we have had less injuries than I believe a lot of other schools have had.” Piron credited Batavia’s sports boosters for helping fund various tackling equipment through the years. The gear, coupled with defensive coordinator Matt Holm’s technique-heavy drills, put Piron at ease. “A lot of what you do is Xs and Os and buttoned up and getting in the right position and working on technique and conditioning and things that will matter down the stretch,” Piron said. “But I think you can do everything to get you to the point of a tackle, and really being in position to make a tackle is what makes most of the tackles anyhow. Hustle and pursuit and all those things.” Reeling in a state berth: St. Charles North swept the top two spots at Saturday’s IHSA Shabbona Lake Bass Fishing Sectional, and will join a

boat from Geneva at the state tournament May 9 and 10 at downstate Carlyle Lake. Matt Fredericksen joined Carter Heflen and Jacob Lewandowski on North’s top boat, which caught 9 pounds, 11 ounces of bass. The North Stars’ second boat – its No. 1 listed entry – consists of Curtis Cecchi, J.R. Igleski, Jacob Scharringhausen and Daniel Barsanti. That group had a haul of 6 pounds, 15 ounces, five ounces ahead of Geneva’s qualifying duo of Sam Vogelsberg and Marc Horaig. One driver transports two fishermen, and a school can opt to substitute during the competition. North has won four of its six sectionals since the inception of IHSA bass fishing in 2009. Dave Fuerst assists head coach Tim Pinks. “From Day 1, we’ve formed a great friendship and a good coaching rapport,” Fuerst said. “It’s pretty exciting. I’ve got to pinch myself a little.” This spring, the sectional and state competitions were moved back one week in a bid to provide warmer weather for anglers. Fuerst, who was at Lake Shabbona 10 days ago, as well, reported a water temperature

climb of about seven degrees, to the 55 to 57 degree range, this past weekend. “It fishes so differently down south that many of the coaches here put their voices into the process,” Fuerst said. Back on the bus: Recently removed from a 1,030-mile road trip to Bowling Green, Ky., and Dayton, Ohio, the Midwest League-leading Cougars embarked Monday on a much shorter sojourn. A four-game trek to Cedar Rapids – covering 430 miles round-trip – figures to feel like clockwork after the long Bowling Green-Dayton swing. “It was our first one of the season, so everybody was trying to get used to it. Getting back in the grind of sitting on a bus for a long period of time, stuff like that,” first baseman Jacob Rogers said. “We played some cards, watched some movies, hung out with the guys.” The Cougars, 17-6 and winners of six straight entering Monday, will play 16 of their next 25 games at home after returning from Cedar Rapids.

we’re going to walk. … So I think it’ll be a lot less stressful on his legs. I know we’re going a farther distance but I think it’ll be a lit more leisurely.” As is often the case for marathoners, much of Oliver’s affirmation has been internal, but Saturday’s marathon included adulation on both the front and back ends. His parents presented him with dozens of letters of encouragement the night before the race, and Monday at Alice Gustafson Elementary School in Batavia, Oliver said there was “an uproar” when his achievement was saluted over morning announcements. While his mother said Oliver

has been “more of an academic kid” than an athlete during his youth, he is interested in trying tennis, wrestling, and, yes, cross country, in the coming years. “What they call long distance running is definitely not what I do,” Oliver said, musing about the prospect of running cross country when he hits Rotolo Middle School. “They run three miles at most. I usually run about five to 10 a day, so that’s more just an extra thing to meet up with a group and be able to run with them.” Being just one of the boys, after all, remains in Oliver’s repertoire.

extra fuel for Oliver. Oliver’s father – Eric Datz – is outdoorsy but does not like to run. “He tells us ‘If I was on fire, I’d walk to the hose,’ ” Amy Bohac-Datz said. So dad spent Saturday performing his own task with a high degree of difficulty – corralling 2-year-old Charlie and 6-month-old Wally while locating Oliver and Amy at five different points along the course to shout encouragement. Both of Oliver’s parents come from scientific backgrounds and refute the notion that it is unsafe for children to attempt marathons until they are fully grown. Many races, including the St. Charles-based Fox Valley Marathon, have policies against runners younger than age 18 competing for liability reasons. Oliver required physical therapy last year after experiencing Achilles tendinitis but said he’s in far better shape than he was then. That conditioning will be tested again next month. Oliver and his mom are planning to participate in the Tryon Farm Trail 50K run – just more than 31 miles – in Michigan City, Ind. “For the marathon, he was trying not to stop and walk at all,” Amy Bohac-Datz said. “For this ultrarace, with the uphill,

n some ways, Oliver Bohac-Datz is a kid through and through. His mom is the center of his universe, and Godzilla’s exploits can dominate his conversations. But Saturday reinforced that the 11-year-old from Batavia is no run-of-the-mill fifth-grader. Running alongside his mother, Oliver completed the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon in Champaign-Urbana, a race that finished at the University of Illinois’ Memorial Stadium. “We had to tell each other to quit crying because we can’t run and cry at the same time, but we were both kind of overwhelmed with emotion [at the end],” said Amy Bohac-Datz, Oliver’s mother. “I was just so proud of him and I think he was so proud of himself. It was really emotional at that point.” Holding hands with his mother for the final quarter-mile, Oliver completed the marathon in 4:55.02. He became the first exception in the event’s six-year history to the policy of marathoners needing to be at least 17 years old, according to race director Jan Seeley. While Oliver dedicated each of the 26 miles to a someone influential in his life – ranging from family members to a teacher to noted U.S. ultramarathoner Scott Jurek – it’s clear who was Oliver’s primary inspiration, and not just because his mom popped one of the painful blisters that developed on his feet during the race. “When you spend almost five hours with her, it’s hard not to like her,” Oliver said, showcasing a sense of humor that also ranges beyond his years. “She’s always just nice, trying to pull me through harder runs like she did Saturday. It’s definitely something that brings us closer together, and when you cross that finish line after so long, it’s really some sort of amazing thing, almost a miracle, that you were able to do that.” Despite adhering to the grueling marathon training regimen, Amy Bohac-Datz said Saturday’s run was even more demanding than her son

anticipated. “Running those extra five miles [compared to a training run] really took a lot mentally out of him to push through the race,” she said. “I think he mentally had a struggle for about five miles between 16 and 21 where I don’t think he would have dropped out of the race, but he was kind of feeling ‘Oh my gosh, this is a lot harder than I thought it was going to be.’ I’m not sure what pushed him through the mental hurdles at Mile 21 but he was really excited for the finish line. Something happened at Mile 21 in his head where he was like ‘I can do this.’ ” Oliver’s interest in long-distance running blossomed after he ran the last eight miles of a marathon in Lincolnshire in 2012 with his mom. He began training with her as part of multiple local running groups and ran four half-marathons – including one in Batavia – before finishing Saturday’s marathon in Champaign. The Champaign race came about because Amy Bohac-Datz planned to run it last year but had her registration pushed back a year because of her pregnancy. She also thought the extra fanfare and hoopla of completing the race at Memorial Stadium might provided

Insider A closer look at prep softball

IN THE GROOVE TESS HUPE ST. CHARLES EAST, SR., OF What she did: Hupe produced seven hits Saturday in a trio of Saints wins – against Maine South, Machesney Park Harlem and Hoffman Estates – as East won its home invitational.

Monica Maschak – mmaschak@shawmedia.com

Kaneland pitcher Courtney Davis winds up on a pitch in the third inning Friday against Sycamore. Kaneland beat Sycamore, 10-9.

NOTEWORTHY Knights’ Davis shows her worth Junior pitcher Angie Morrow is the unquestioned staff ace for Kaneland, but the Knights’ search for a reliable No. 2 to complement Morrow has been less definitive. Sophomore Courtney Davis made her case Friday with an impressive relief outing that kept the Knights afloat in a 10-9, Northern Illinois Big 12 East win at Sycamore. Davis, relieving Anissa Becker in the bottom of the first, allowed a hit to the first batter she faced against the Spartans, then went threeplus innings without yielding a hit as the Knights dug out of a 7-3, first inning hole. Davis features plenty of movement on her ball and is

often able to induce hitters to offer at pitches near or in the dirt. “My key is just to stay calm, not try to throw super-hard,” Davis said. “Just try to get the location. I trust my pitch-calling that if I get the location, it’s going to get an out.” After being inserted into the Knights’ batting order when she came into Friday’s game, Davis also added a pair of hits to Kaneland’s comeback cause. Davis’ control faltered in the bottom of the fifth, when Kaneland coach Brian Willis inserted Morrow for the stretch run. “Courtney came in with good stuff,” Willis said. “She tired there at the end. Angie pitched [Thursday], I didn’t

really want to use her, but for a couple innings she was strong enough to come in and finish it off for us.”

Fear factor After seventh inning defensive miscues proved costly in Wednesday’s 9-8 loss at Geneva, Batavia coach Lupe Castellanos mused about how contagious errors can be. “Once they make one mistake, I think they get a little bit nervous and whatnot – I think the pressure gets on, and then it’s like ‘Don’t hit the ball to me,’ ” Castellanos said. “But I coach to try to want the ball, try to want to make a play. At that point, somebody’s got to step up and just try to make a play to

try and kill the rally there.”

MORGAN WEBER KANELAND, FR., IF What she did: Weber continued her impressive freshman season with a twoout, bases loaded single in the top of the sixth inning Friday that scored two runs and allowed the Knights to overtake host Sycamore for a 10-9 win.

In position Geneva improved to 5-2 in conference play with Saturday’s 15-8 win against South Elgin, positioning the Vikings to be a potential dark horse in the Upstate Eight Conference River race. “We’re going to head into a stretch of our schedule that’s going to determine our fate in the conference,” Vikings coach Greg Dierks said. Of particular importance for Geneva will be a four-game stretch between May 6 and May 13 when the Vikings will play UEC River contenders St. Charles East and St. Charles North twice each. – Jay Schwab, jschwab@shawmedia.com

COACH SLY SEZ ... Give Batavia credit for playing very competitive second half of the season. softball in recent weeks. Considering the young talent in the Bulldogs’ lineup, The Bulldogs had a rocky start to the season but are this looks like a program that should be on the rise in showing they’re not a team to be taken lightly in the the next season or two.

WHAT WE LEARNED LAST WEEK ... Better play to the last out against Geneva. As Kaneland found out earlier this month, protecting a late lead against Geneva can be tricky business. Batavia allowed six runs to Geneva in the bottom of the seventh Wednesday as the Vikings surged past their archrival, 9-8.

WHAT WE’LL LEARN IN THE WEEK AHEAD ... Whether St. Charles East or St. Charles North commands early crosstown bragging rights. The Upstate Eight Conference River heavyweights are scheduled for their irst conference meeting of the year today at East. The return matchup at North is slated for May 20.

After playing high school football in the smallest enrollment class in Illinois, Bryce Farquhar on Monday was named the new football coach at St. Charles East, a program coming off a berth in the IHSA Class 8A playoffs, the state’s largest class. Farquhar – who coached lower-level football in East’s program over the past seven years – considers a feverish work ethic the common denominator in his success, no matter where he’s been. “I think I’ve gained the respect of coaches and kids just by putting in the work, and that’s really my vision for the program,” Farquhar said. Bryce “We’re going to Farquhar put in the work to be successful not only as athletes but as men and good community members and good students. It’s such an awesome responsibility. I’m just proud to be in this spot.” Farquhar, 34, replaces Mike Fields, who cited family considerations in stepping down after his fifth season with the Saints. Farquhar, a Huntley resident, was chosen from a pool of more than 40 applicants, according to East athletic director Mike Sommerfeld. The hiring is subject to school board approval, which is expected to come May 12. Working under a relatively compact timeframe to hire a coach in time to set up the Saints’ summer program, Sommerfeld still sought input from parents of East players, who expressed a desire that the coach implement a “robust” offseason program, assist players with college recruitment and generally help take the program to the next level. East made the playoffs in three of Fields’ five seasons but did not win a playoff game. “In the end, what they were

looking for was exactly what we were looking for,” Sommerfeld said. “We met with the parents, and some of the things that they said they wanted, we definitely brought that perspective and kind of worked that into our questioning when we questioned the finalists. It was very important to hear from them because we need their support.” At East, Farquhar first coached under Ted Monken, then Fields, but said he will bring a distinct brand of leadership to the program. He said changes in the program will have more to do with all the behind-the-scenes details that add up to success rather than any drastic shifts in Xs and Os. Fields – a longtime former sophomore coach at Geneva before coming to East – installed Farquhar as the Saints’ sophomore coach, knowing how crucial a role that is in a program. “He’s qualified and he’ll do a wonderful job,” Fields said. “He’s well respected by the kids. I know he’ll definitely put in the time and do all the things you need to be a successful coach. … I’m excited for him to see how he does and what he does. He’s got a bright future.” A teacher in East’s wellness department, Farquhar (pronounced Fork-er) played high school football for a powerhouse 1A program in western Illinois, then known as Northwestern-La Harpe. He then attended but did not play football at nearby Western Illinois University before his teaching career took him to the Chicago suburbs. A stint as an assistant football coach at Richmond-Burton preceded his move to St. Charles East. Farquhar said joyous emotions bubbled up when Sommerfeld told him he’d be the Saints’ next coach, then quickly realized the amount of tasks needing prompt attention to prepare for the summer. One of those is figuring out which of the other members of Fields’ former coaching staff will remain on board for the 2014 season.

Heisley had appetite for St. Charles

Kane County Chronicle / KCChronicle.com • Tuesday, April 29, 2014

By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com Dollar burgers and NBA basketball at Rookie’s Pub spelled bliss for late St. Charles billionaire Michael Heisley. The former Memphis Grizzlies owner, who died Saturday at 77, frequented the Main Street restaurant without attracting attention to himself or his prestigious past. “You would never know he was a billionaire or whatever he is on the Forbes list from walking into Rookies,” owner Bob Karas said. “He was very nice, very humble. He wasn’t flashy. He was just the nicest man.” The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported Heisley died in Illinois from complications of a stroke he suffered in early 2012. He is survived by his wife, Agnes, and five children. One daughter, Emily Heisley Stoeckel, was listed as chairman of Chicago-based The Heico Companies, LLC, a holding company which Heisley founded. Heisley served as chairman emeritus until his death. Even as he traveled extensively throughout his business career, Heisley maintained a passion for St. Charles, still keeping his base there when he owned the Grizzlies from April 2000 to October 2012. Heisley served on the District 303 school board in the mid-1980s, when current St. Charles Mayor Ray Rogina headed the teacher’s union. “We retained a friendship thereafter and I can’t say enough about him,” Rogina said. “Here’s a guy that he’s a powerful business entrepreneur with Heico, his corporation, he’s an owner in the NBA with the Grizzles. … Having said all of that and with all the companies he was involved in, at the end of the day he was all about community. He was all about the community of St. Charles.” An active parishioner at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Heisley was often a recent inclusion in the “pray for the

sick” listings in the parish bulletin, Rogina said. “He’s a giant in this community as far as I was concerned, but at the same time low-key,” Rogina said. “A big loss for our community. He’s a great man. I’m sad today.” Heisley bought the Grizzlies when the expansion franchise still was located in its original Vancouver, British Columbia. With the operation scuffling and more losses expected, he moved the Grizzlies to Memphis, Tenn., before the 2001-02 season. At that point, Karas had owned Rookie’s for a few years and was in the early phases of taking stock of his high-profile customer. Management kept a respectful distance when Heisley visited. It wasn’t until Rookie’s manager Nori Jasarovski assisted Heisley with some iPhone troubleshooting several years ago that a more special relationship formed. As the Grizzlies developed into a Western Conference contender, Jasarovski often flew to playoff games in Heisley’s private jet. Rookie’s soon became a de facto Grizzlies’ hangout. Among the most prominent pieces of donated Memphis memorabilia is a jersey near the front entrance signed by star center Zach Randolph. Karas sometimes lobbied Jasarovski to help coax Randolph into joining the Bulls. Heisley occasionally dined and watched sports privately with Karas, partner Mike Maridis and Jasarovski on holidays when Rookie’s was closed. Between the time he sold the Grizzlies for a reported $377 million and the time he became ill, Karas said Heisley pondered purchasing the recently sold Milwaukee Bucks in a bid to run an NBA operation closer to home. “A very nice man, very nice. Very interesting,” Karas said. “He’d tell stories about how he started out in business and his philosophies on business. Obviously, he commanded a presence when you sat with him, and you really just listened.”

PREP ROUNDUP

Sean King for Shaw Media

Geneva’s Tim Roels runs the 100-meter dash Saturday during the Peterson Prep Track Meet at Kaneland High School in Maple Park.

PETERSON PREP TRACK MEET

Knights ‘can’t complain’ claiming Peterson title By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com MAPLE PARK – Luis Acosta perked his ears and grinned at the announcement that he and three Kaneland boys track teammates had collaborated on the fastest 4x800-meter relay time in Illinois this spring. Covering the race in 7:50.27 not only garnered a state superlative, but also gave Andrew Lesak, Acosta, Kyle Carter and Nathaniel Kucera the meet record in the host Knights’ Peterson Prep Invitational. Ultimate satisfaction, however, projects as a prize to be gained later, even as the quartet competed together for the first time this season Saturday. “That’s an amazing time, and I feel we could have gone even faster,” Acosta said. For the moment, Kucera

kept a more level head. “Can’t complain,” he said. The victory was one of six overall for the Knights, who honored the front of their Nike hoodies (“KANELAND NEVER STOPS”) and weeklong Twitter hashtag (#DefendPete) to comfortably take the 17-team invite with 140 points. Runner-up DeKalb followed with 66 points. Batavia (61, fourth); Geneva (44, fifth) and Wheaton Academy (tied for 13th, 10) also competed. With the Kane County meet looming in two weeks and the Class 2A state series on tap shortly thereafter, there’s no doubt the Knights’ morale is riding high, even if that’s not always on outward display. “Yeah, it’s really unspoken,” senior hurdles double-winner Brock Robertson said. “We usually don’t say too much about the meets, we just work hard through-

out practice and things come through to meet day.” Batavia closed the meet by edging Kaneland in the 4x400, with Bulldogs’ anchor David Curnock withstanding Kucera’s late charge. Blake Crowder, Peyton Piron and Jorden Berendt built a nice cushion, helping Batavia finish in 3:27.06. The result certainly energized the ride home. “Going in with a good attitude, you’ve got that ‘We can do this, we can win’ [mentality],” Crowder said. “That really pumps us up, and we just like to go and compete.” Batavia’s Mark Majka (6 feet, 4 inches) and Mark Rudelich (6-3) finished second and third in the high jump. Geneva’s highlights included Blaine Bartel’s runner-up finish in the 3,200 (9:54.66) and third-place efforts from Sam Urben in the 800 (2:02.29) and Tim Roels in the 100.

CEDAR RAPIDS 1, COUGARS 0

Kernels halt Cougars’ streak KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – A run-scoring sacrifice fly and Mother Nature collaborated Monday to end the Cougars’ six-game winning streak. Cedar Rapids earned a 1-0 victory in the opener of a four-game series against Justin Amlung the Cougars (17-7) in a game shortened to six innings because of rain. The Kernels (13-10) scored the game’s only run on Bryan Haar’s sacrifice fly to center against Cougars righty Paul Blackburn.

Next for Cougars Cougars at Cedar Rapids, 6:35 p.m. today, AM1280 Both teams had three hits, with Kane County’s Yasiel Balaguert, Jordan Hankins and Trey Martin all collecting singles. Blackburn took the loss after allowing one run in five innings, striking out four. Justin Amlung worked a scoreless sixth before the rain moved in. The teams are set to resume their series at 6:35 p.m. today.

KOVELS: ANTIQUES AND COLLECTING

BY TERRY KOVEL KOVELS.COM Technology has changed the furniture we live with. Tables and desks had to change to accommodate modern, large and often clumsy electronics. At first a radio or radiophonograph combination was kept in a cabinet that resembled a piece of early William and Mary furniture. It was a boxlike two-door cabinet with long legs. The radio and phonograph were hidden behind the doors. Television sets required a rearrangement of chairs. The first sets were small and sat on a table. The screen was so tiny it required a magnifying-glass insert so more than one person could see the picture. When screens got larger, the TV set sat on the floor in a corner and chairs were arranged so the screen was easy for all to see. Soon, televisions were sold in attractive cabinets in reproduction furniture styles. Only the daring in the 1950s were buying modern furniture and leaving the television in plain view. Today’s television is thin and often hangs on a wall. Through the years, desks have changed, too. Early desks had myriad drawers, shelves and doors so they could be used like a filing cabinet. The famous and very large Wooten desk was made with doors that could be locked. Computers made 18th- and 19th-century desks obsolete. Early personal computers had large boxlike monitors and separate keyboards that had to be at “writing” height. The “brains” (CPU) usually were kept on the floor nearby. Useful, but not attractive. As computers grew smaller, screens grew flatter. Now a laptop or tablet can be kept on any shelf or table and blend in with any furniture style. Although prices for early desks have fallen, they still sell to those who like a period look. Exotic woods, marquetry, brass or gold trim, and carvings make an antique desk an attractive addition to a room, but not a great spot for a computer. Today average wooden desks from the past two centuries are a bargain, often selling for $300 to $1,000, much less than many new modern desks. And an antique desk is always in good taste. *** Q: Back in the late 1980s, I bought an oak roll-top desk from someone who had owned it for years. On one side of adno=0266792

the desk there’s a bronze plaque that reads “Oak Creek by Riverside.” Please tell me about the desk and if it has any value. A: Riverside Furniture Corp., based in Fort Smith, Ark., was founded in 1946 and is still in business. So your desk, in Riverside’s Oak Creek line, is not an antique. But Oak Creek is not among the furniture lines the company still is manufacturing. Reproduction rolltop desks of solid oak, like yours, sell for $250 to $650, depending on style and condition. *** Q: I inherited a silver hand mirror that belonged to my grandmother. The back of the mirror and handle are decorated with repousse (raised) flowers and leaves. It’s marked “Sterling 4000” and “R. Wallace & Sons.” What is it worth? A: R. Wallace & Sons was in business from 1871 until 1956, when it became Wallace Silversmiths. The company made silver plate and sterling silver. It became R. Wallace & Sons Manufacturing Co. in 1871. It made silver pieces for several other companies and didn’t mark them with the Wallace name until 1897. Hand mirrors with

which made bubbles in the dough. This made the dough rise and the cakes light. It was replaced in our century by baking powder. ***

This English William IV desk cost only $984 at a New Orleans Auction Galleries sale. That’s much less than a new desk of the same quality. The antique desk, made of solid mahogany in about 1830, has two shelves and 15 drawers.

silver backs and handles were very popular around the turn of the 20th century. Your sterling-silver mirror is worth $250 to $350. *** Q: What is pearlash? I have a cookbook from the 1840s and many of the cake and cookie recipes call for pearlash. A: Pearlash (purlash) was a lye-based chemical used in baking from about 1789 to 1840. A cook added pearlash and an acid like citrus to dough so that when it started to cook it released carbon dioxide,

Q: I have an unopened 18-ounce beer bottle shaped like a baseball bat. The glass looks like it’s wood-grained and the “handle” is painted to look like it’s taped. It has the “A. Coors” signature and is labeled “Coors Light” and “The silver bullet.” What would six of these be worth? A: Baseball bat bottles were a big hit when they were introduced by Coors in 1996. The limited-edition bottles of Coors and Coors Light were first sold on March 1 at a Colorado Rockies exhibition game held at the team’s spring-training facility at Hi Corbett Field in Tucson, Ariz. The bottles sold out quickly in the Tucson area because would-be collectors thought distribution would be limited to their area. But Coors introduced a “Signature Series” of baseball bat-shaped bottles in 1997. Each bottle featured an autograph of either Ernie Banks, Reggie Jackson or Willie Mays, Major League players who had hit more than 500 home runs. The sale of these limited-edition bottles helped support the Coors Light USA Soft-

ball World Series, but the bottles were prohibited in some states. State laws also govern the sale of beer, and you can’t sell full bottles without a license. Empty baseball bat bottles sell for a dollar or two. *** Tip: The old cord on a vintage phone adds value. Green cords are best. Other old styles are twisted cords, brown cords, and patterned cords called rattlesnakes. ** * Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

HOROSCOPE By BERNICE BEDE OSOL

Recommended music albums for April

Newspaper Enterprise Association weight of time’s passing, and lilting album closer “Forgiveness” betrays a melancholy sweetness. Not that Mueller, a drummer by trade, can’t turn things up when she wants to – “Holy Bastard” has a slow build before the horns and guitars kick in at the halfway mark, and Mueller lets loose with a fiery, Grace Potter-like verve. • Listen to: “Radio,” stirring electro-folk with an alternative ’90s feel.

By PETER CHIANCA TODAY – Your desire for accomplishment will be a great help to you this year. Out of many available choices, you will have to single out the most valuable and be proactive about it. Your determination and forcefulness will add to your strength, putting you in a leadership position. Reach for the stars. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – You will be easily upset and drawn into tense situations if you aren’t careful. Take a step back and be an observer until you see a path that is safe to take. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – A lighthearted attitude will help you win favors. Don’t speak out until others have had their say. Avoid confrontations and approach things with an open mind. Take the safe route. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – You aren’t guaranteed positive returns on every investment. Consider putting your determination to good use by presenting and promoting your skills and talents instead of someone else’s. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Make a point to learn something new. Don’t limit your possibilities. If you are uncertain or unhappy about your current path, look into other options. Make positive changes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – It’s time to pick up the pace and stop delaying the inevitable. Your original plan may need to be adjusted. Take the initiative and get busy. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Minor health issues will escalate if you don’t deal with them right away. Ask for assistance if you need it. Your health should be your No. 1 priority. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Be careful not to overreact or take on too much. You will have to make a difficult decision regarding a personal matter. You must act fast before the situation escalates. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Don’t mix business with pleasure. You should keep your personal thoughts a secret. Someone could use information you divulge against you. Protect your reputation and your assets. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Let your colleagues in on your latest venture. They will propose interesting ideas. Some constructive criticism will help you move ahead with your plans and reach your destination. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Others may decide to pass their workload on to you. Your responsibilities will take your full attention, so don’t sign up for any additional tasks. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Your empathetic nature will be put to good use. Take time to help a worthy organization and share your insight with those who need it the most. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Be brave and take on a new challenge. If you seem to be in a stalemate, explore ways to diversify your skills. Pursue a direction that interests you.

More Content Now Below are reviews of recommended new releases from Life in a Blender, Eden Brent, Kristin Mueller and Leland Sundries.

Life in a Blender, “We Already Have Birds That Sing” (Fang Records) • About: This NYC-based “chamber pop” band is aptly named. Its sound seems to blend vestiges of acts as diverse as Tom Waits, Cake, They Might Be Giants, Mojo Nixon and quite possibly Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. If that sounds like an odd mix, you’re right – but darned if it doesn’t work, as both eclectic oddball rock and winking satire. The best tracks are the ones where bandleader Don Rauf affects an off-kilter growl that suits the offbeat material. Among these are “Tongue-Cut Sparrow,” a seedy story of a 1950s burlesque dancer that Rauf says mirrors the band’s own 25year career, and “Shards,” a Talking Heads-style tour through a recluse’s apartment: “The pencil shavings, the sourballs, the paper clip dispenser … They cheer me up,” he declares to swinging ska horns. Songs about Frankenstein (“Frankenstein Cannot Be Stopped”), Cape Cod romance (“Falmouth”) and setting out to sea in a leaky boat (“To Sea in a Sieve”) are equally quirky and all oddly moving. • Listen to: “Good Answer,” a shouting smackdown of pop-culture conformity.

Leland Sundries, “Live at the Creamery” (L’Echiquier Records)

Life in a Blender’s album “We Already Have Birds That Sing” (clockwise from top left), Eden Brent’s “Jigsaw Heart,” Kristin Mueller’s “Deserts & Long Trails” and Leland Sundries’ “Live at the Creamery” are all recommended albums for April. mains something of a small miracle, mixing traditional blues into a satisfying gumbo of Mississippi boogie-woogie piano, soulful Americana and Ella-esque jazz swagger. Her last album, 2010’s “Ain’t Got No Troubles,” was darn near perfect, and she continues to roll on her latest release – “Jigsaw Heart” is equal parts rollicking celebration and melancholy musing, without a clunker in the bunch. Brent’s softer side is especially strong on this disc; the slow, sad album opener “Better This Way” beautifully captures the final throes of a doomed love affair, and the title track drips with a hard-nosed, bluesy realism about the challenges of gathering up “the scattered pieces” of a new partner’s heart. But the album has plenty of winking fun too – “Let’s Go Ahead and Fall In Love” shows that Brent never met

an innuendo she didn’t like (spackling? really?), and “Locomotive” chugs along with buoyant verve. • Listen to: “Opportunity,” a sultry Joan Armatrading cover.

Kristin Mueller, “Deserts & Long Trails” (bandcamp.com) • About: Much of “Deserts” seems to take place in that drowsy limbo between sleep and awake – there’s an echoey vibe that can be hypnotic but also surreal, and not a little bit eerie. Mueller’s tremulous vocals, meanwhile, recall Stevie Nicks at her witchiest. Buoyed by layered harmonies, twinkling keyboards and intertwining strings and banjos, it’s a moody masterpiece. The album’s smoky charms are its greatest strength; on “Old Records,” Mueller’s purr evokes the din of nostalgia and the

• About: We’re still waiting for a full-length album, but until then this six-track live set – well, eight tracks if you include bandleader Nick Loss-Eaton’s between-song comic monologues – makes for a fine placeholder. It helps that it kicks off with the stomping new track “Maps of the West,” which stands among their best. The other songs, mostly culled from their two EPs, provide a good showcase for the Brooklyn band’s literate, steam-punky alterna-folk. In particular, “Airstream Transmission” offers a gruffer, even moodier take on the studio version from 2012’s “The Foundry,” owing primarily to Loss-Eaton’s laconic Lou Reed-by-way-of-Leonard Cohen drawl and downright spooky harmonica. And “Roller Derby Queen,” a live version of the band’s vinyl single from that same year, is raw rockabilly that suggests Leland Sundries hasn’t even yet begun to swing. • Listen to: “Maps of the West,” a harmonica- and banjo-laden road song.


DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips minutes. Explain that you realize the kids are growing and changing quickly, and you understand their desire to record all of it, but the children need a deeper kind of interaction with their grandparents in order to form a positive bond with them. Then suggest some ways they can relate to the little ones after the camera is put away. Dear Abby: I’m a 43-year-old woman who has been in a relationship with a man I dated many years ago, “Charles.” When we reconnected three years ago, I had a dog, “Frosty.” One year into the relationship, Charles asked me to get rid of Frosty because he thinks dogs are unsanitary. I loved Frosty and kept him, but it caused all kinds of problems with my boyfriend. When Charles and I moved

in together three months ago, he insisted I get rid of Frosty and I caved. I miss my little friend so much it hurts. Memories of him are everywhere. I am able to get him back, but is it crazy that I would jeopardize my relationship because I want to keep my dog? – In The Doghouse Dear In The Doghouse: I don’t think it’s crazy, and I’m sure my animal-loving readers – who number in the millions – would agree with me. People bond with their pets to such an extent that in the event of a natural disaster, some of them refuse to be separated from their companions. That Charles would insist you get rid of Frosty shows extreme insensitivity for your feelings, in addition to disregard for your beloved pet in whom you had a significant emotional investment. Could Charles be jealous of the affection you have shown Frosty? Not knowing him, I can’t guess. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Start treating learning disability as early as possible Dear Doctor K: I think my son may have a learning disability. How can I tell if there really is a problem? Dear Reader: Most kids have some difficulty in school at one time or another, and usually it’s nothing to worry about. Sometimes, though, it can be a sign of a learning disability. “Learning disability” is a broad term that can cover different types of problems. A child with a learning disability may have a hard time receiving, organizing, remembering or using information. The most common learning disability is trouble with reading. But some children may have trouble with math, with understanding the spoken word or with abstract ideas. Here are some possible warning signs of learning disabilities in preschoolers and young children: Preschoolers (ages 3 to 4) • Late talking. Most kids start speaking in short phrases by 2 years. By age 3, most preschoolers have a vocabulary of 500 or more words, which they use to form three- or four-word sentences. • Slow to learn words. Most kids are picking up and speaking single words by 15 to 18 months. • Problems pronouncing words.

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff Preschoolers generally speak clearly enough for strangers to understand most of what they are saying. • Trouble remembering colors, numbers or letters. • Trouble following directions. Preschoolers can generally follow three-part commands. • Difficulty talking and playing with children the same age. Most preschoolers can cooperate with other children and negotiate solutions to conflicts.

Early school-age children (5 to 7 years) • Trouble connecting sounds with letters. • Difficulty remembering everyday words. • Continuing to reverse letters (such as b/d), flip over letters (m/w), or mix up letters and words. Reversing letters usually disappears by age 7. • Having a hard time with basic math facts. By 5 years, most children can count five to 10 objects. By age 7, most can count to 100. • Not being able to recall facts. • Trouble learning new skills.

• Memorizing things more than understanding them. • Poor coordination. By age 6 or 7, most children can hold a pencil well enough to copy letters correctly. • Not making friends or being able to have social conversations. Lots of children will show one or more of these signs and not have a learning disability. But if your child shows two or more warning signs that don’t improve over several months, talk with your child’s teacher. All public schools must evaluate children when a disability is known or suspected. Many psychologists and medical centers also offer testing. Also talk with your child’s pediatrician. Some medical conditions (for example, a hearing problem, or epilepsy) can look like a learning disability. Your pediatrician can help get your child needed testing and help. If a problem exists, it’s important to begin treatment promptly. You can’t “cure” a learning disability. But there are many ways to help a child with a learning disability to be successful.

Dr. Wallace: I’m in the ninth grade and my sister is in the 12th grade. She is super intelligent and has always gotten straight A’s and is probably going to be her class valedictorian. She has already accepted a scholarship at the University of California, and my parents and I are very proud of her. My problem is that I’m only an A/B student even though I study very hard. Because of this, some of my teachers have commented that, “You’ll have to work harder if you want to keep up with your sister.” This really makes me feel like a dunce because I’m not my sister – I’m me, and I just can’t make all A’s. My sister is a wonderful friend to me, and I love her very much, but I hate to always be compared to her. How can I get my teachers to accept me for who I am and not always compare me with my sister? – Sad, in San Jose, Calif. Dear Sad: There are many teachers who understand that each child is unique and should never be compared with a sibling. This is taught in teacher education classes at all colleges. When a teacher forgets this and compares you with your sister, remind the teacher courteously not to do so. You are an excellent student in your own right, and I’m sure your parents are very proud of your accomplishments. Dr. Wallace: I have a cousin who is the same age as I am. We are not very close, but we attend the same school. Whenever we talk to each other, it seems like she is always trying to convince me that she is popular. All she ever talks about is how many friends she has. She is

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace president of the pep club and is a joiner who also belongs to many clubs on campus. My cousin probably does know more kids than I do and has more friends (or acquaintances) than I do, but I also have friends. I just don’t brag about the numbers. What can I say to make her aware that I’ve got good friends, but I don’t care to brag about it? – Nameless, Moline Dear Nameless: When the talk turns to friends, simply tell your cousin that it’s not really the number that counts, it’s the quality of the friendship that is most important. Next in importance is the integrity of the friends, and least important is the number of friends one has. She will get the message. Dr. Wallace: I disagree with your answer to a 13-year-old boy who weighs over 230 pounds and, during a heated argument he hit his sister and made her cry because she called him a “tub of lard.” You told him that he was a bully and that he should lose weight. I’m a 13-year-old girl and I whacked my 10-year-old sister and made her cry because she made the mistake of calling me a blimp. I was not punished, but my sister got a whipping for calling me a name. – Lupe, Del Rio, Texas Dear Lupe: Your sister was cruel when she called you a name and deserved to be punished, but you also should have been punished because you are a bully. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@ galesburg.net.

Dear Abby: My husband and I have been married for three years and have two beautiful children. Shortly before our first child was born, my in-laws bought a new camera. They bring it along to every visit and constantly take pictures of all of us. Neither my husband nor I likes having our pictures taken. My in-laws have thousands of pictures of all of us already. The biggest problem is that they don’t have a relationship with their grandchildren because of this. They complain that the kids “don’t like them.” They feel they should therefore visit more often, but in reality, these visits consist of nonstop photo-snapping, and no quality time is spent with either of the children. How do I make this stop without causing problems? – Out Of Focus In New York Dear Out Of Focus: A diplomatic approach would be to suggest to your in-laws that they “shoot” only for a limited time when they visit – no longer than the first 10

Leap in response to show your hand

CELEBRITY CIPHER

This week, we are looking at strong jump shifts. The opener bids one of a suit and responder makes a single jump in a new suit. Responder shows 13-16 high-card points and either a one-suiter with an excellent suit (in principle, with a play for at most one loser opposite a low singleton), or a two-suiter with at least nine cards divided 5-plus – 4-plus in the responder’s suit and the opener’s suit. In the old days, a strong jump shift promised some 17-19 high-card points. This was not a good idea. First, a hand that strong almost never came up; and second, with that amount of power, responder did best to make a quiet response to learn as much as possible about the distribution and strength of his partner’s hand before naming the final contract. In today’s deal, responder’s second jump showed that his suit was completely solid. North, after rebidding two no-trump to find out which hand-type his partner had, used Blackwood before signing off in six hearts. After West leads the club queen, how should South proceed? Declarer is faced with three losers in his hand: one diamond and two clubs. He does not have time to play a diamond to establish a discard, because East would win with his ace and cash the club king. South must win with dummy’s club ace, play a heart to his ace, and take the three spade tricks, discarding his diamond loser. Then declarer gives up a club. In a moment, he ruffs his final club with dummy’s heart eight and claims.
