The itsy bitsy [furrow] spider GOOD NATURED Pam Otto I don’t think Mother Goose will mind if I paraphrase her work just a bit: “Along came a spider So I sat down beside her And frightened Miss Spider away!” Typically, when one encounters a spider outside in springtime, the creature is teensy. Actually, I believe the technical term is “itsy bitsy.” Small spiders weaving small webs and catching small insects—it’s one of the many hallmarks of spring in northern Illinois. So imagine my surprise when on Thursday, I encountered a spider, outdoors, that was every bit as big as the spiders we normally don’t see around here until late summer or early fall. There she was, with her half-inch body and half-inch legs—a whole inch of spider – smack-dab in the center of her large orb web, placidly slurping the life juices from a boxelder bug. So struck was I by her great size and delicate beauty, that I had no choice than to sit down beside her. And while I did frighten her away, it was only for a minute. She scurried up one of the supporting rays of her web and tucked herself out of sight behind a dried plant stem. Then, apparently deciding that I was big and noisy but otherwise not a threat, she returned to her boxelder breakfast. As she worked the carcass with her pedipalps, making sure to extract every last delicious drop, my mind starting flipping through its Rolodex of possible identities for this

The furrow spider is one of only a few local spider species that overwinter as adults. Its substantial size makes it especially well-suited to eating larger springtime insects; it also can serve as a sizable meal for hungry birds and mammals. new and wondrous creature. It was an orbweaver, for sure, which ruled out a good chunk of species, but also left plenty more up for consideration. Except for one thing… Every individual that came to mind was a late-summer species. Araneus diadematus, the cross orbweaver, is extremely common in our area. But at this time of year, its young are just beginning to emerge from the egg sac in which they overwintered. Plus, this new girl lacked

the prominent white cross marking that A. diadematus is known for. Argiope? Nope. Micrathena? Nope. It wasn’t long before I realized that I was going to need some help from BugGuide.net – my go-to resource for invertebrate ID – as well as some help from my friend Google in order to get this mystery solved. I stayed beside Miss Spider long enough to watch her attempt and fail, to snare a

bee that bounced in and out of her web, then I stood up, snapped a few quick photos and headed on my whey. I mean way. Later that night, at home, I poured myself a tasty beverage, fired up the laptop and began the spider research in earnest. On the BugGuide home page I typed the words “orb weaver” into the search box, then used the web site’s handy “Browse” feature to click through possible options. It wasn’t long before I found a few likely suspects. One in particular – the furrow spiders, genus Larinioides – looked particularly promising. I plugged that name into Google and after only a few more clicks found myself on another favorite “web” (nyuk nyuk) site, Spiderz Rule. The text at the top of the page read, in part: “Furrow Spiders are common orb-weaver spiders often found around homes and other urban areas. Some furrow spiders are known to overwinter as adults: this is noteworthy because typical orb weaver species live for only one year, dying before winter. These species grow to about 1/2” long.” Bam. Sounds like a match to me. Now there’s always a chance that this tentative

UNRIVALED PERFORMANCE. UNPARALLELED SERVICE. CUB CADET RZT® S 42/46/50/54

By CHARLES MENCHACA cmenchaca@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – The eight contestants of a local senior spelling bee Friday expected their competition to last a couple hours. But John Wohlert of St. Charles became the last man standing in about 40 minutes. “I’m super thrilled,” Wohlert, 67, said after the spelling bee ended. Wohlert won by spelling the word “programmatic” correctly after 22 spelling rounds, beating out Brian Sullivan, 51, of St. Charles. Wohlert and Sullivan joined six other 50-and-older adults at the Pottawatomie Community Center at 8 North Ave. in a local qualifying contest for the Illinois State Senior Spelling Bee. This is the first year the St. Charles Park District and the St. Charles Public Library have worked together to offer the senior spelling bee, said Meghan Papke, adult activities supervisor at the park district. The bee is geared toward continual learning and keeping seniors’ brains

active. The competitors definitely stayed busy to prepare for the competition. Wohlert used the “My Word Coach” software on the Nintendo Wii video game system daily for the past two weeks to prepare. Sullivan used spelling websites and had his wife Linda read words to him for practice. Wohlert and Sullivan both said they had to fight nerves when the spelling bee began. “It is luck of the draw,” Sullivan said. “You could

study until you’re blue in the face and still miss a word.” As the top two finishers, Wohlert and Sullivan will represent St. Charles in the regional senior spelling bee set for July 29 in Lincolnshire. Sullivan said it feels good to advance, but he would have been happy no matter how far he went in the spelling bee. He called the competition a unique opportunity. “We’re just here to have some fun and see how we do,” he said.

Officials celebrate regional training center groundbreaking By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – Kane County officials Friday celebrated the groundbreaking of a nearly $2 million project that will increase training opportunities for law enforcement. “This has been a culmination of many years of planning, some level of frustration,” Sheriff Pat Perez said to a group gathered at the site of the future Kane County Regional Training Center. Located on the same campus as the Kane County Judicial Center and Kane County Sheriff’s Office, the 5,700-square-foot firearms range will have six shooting

lanes and the capability to accommodate different training scenarios, such as traffic stops and low-light conditions. “We’re very, very excited about this project,” Perez said. The Kane County Sheriff’s Office has been without a shooting range for more than a year. Its Fabyan Parkway facility flooded and was contaminated by lead and mold. Since then, the sheriff’s employees have been forced to rent time at St. Charles’ outdoor range, which can be logistically difficult when inclement weather preempts their plans, Perez said. “We’re a slave to the

weather,” he said. Other agencies will be able to rent time at the Kane County Regional Training Center, which also will include a classroom, Perez said. On Friday, Perez celebrated its groundbreaking with others from the sheriff’s office, as well as County Board members and County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen, who welcomed the crowd. “Today we’re celebrating progress,” Lauzen said. Construction on the center is expected to be completed by the end of October. Cordogan Clark – a full-service architectural, engineering and construction firm – is working with the county on the project.

McMahon: Cunningham made his own agreement on ex-deputy’s severance By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com

iff, circuit clerk, coroner and recorder. “We serve as their lawyer, so when they have a contract that needs to be reviewed … by law, the state’s attorney’s office has to represent that officeholder,” McMahon said. “The officeholder still negotiates those terms.” Constitutional officeholders like Cunningham make decisions independently of the County Board, McMahon said. “They decide the substance of the agreement – we will draft the legal language,” McMahon said. “In this scenario, the dollar amount of the severance – that was Jack’s decision …. Jack can make this agreement on his own without input or a decision by the County Board. Officeholders can make decisions – good or bad – and not I nor anybody else can stop

them from making a bad decision.” Cunningham did not return phone messages or a text seeking further comment. Assistant State’s Attorney Joseph Lulves, who is the civil division chief, said his office does not physically have Ward’s severance check. “Jack’s office will notify us through payroll,” Lulves said. And then it would be sent to Ward’s lawyer, once the process goes through the county’s payroll department, Lulves said. Kane County board member Mark Davoust, R-St. Charles, said he understands the County Board has no power to veto the severance agreement. “Once he presents a budget and the County Board approves it, the money is in his budget and he handles it from

there,” Davoust said. Still, Davoust questioned the generosity of Ward’s severance agreement. “Why on earth would you reward … someone for doing something wrong?” Davoust said. “While the money comes from Mr. Cunningham’s budget, the only dollars we work with are taxpayer dollars. It’s still our money getting spent.” Davoust lost to Cunningham for the GOP nomination for county clerk in the March 18 primary. Ward’s use of the county server to do Cunningham’s re-election work was referred to McMahon’s office by the county ethics adviser. McMahon’s office does not comment on possible or pending investigations. Cunningham would be seeking his fourth term as clerk and, so far, is unopposed in the November election.

GENEVA – Kane County Clerk Jack Cunningham’s separation agreement with a former deputy clerk was negotiated entirely by him and the cost also will come out of the clerk’s budget, county officials said. Geneva resident Jeff Ward, who was placed on a five-day suspension in March for doing campaign work for Cunningham’s re-election, resigned from his position as an applications analyst April 1, according to the seven-page agreement. Ward had worked in Cunningham’s office since Dec. 7, 2012, on a part-time basis until June 9, 2013, when he went full-time, according to payroll records obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. Cunningham’s office

agreed to pay Ward $11,298.42 in a one-time lump sum severance payment within 30 days of Ward signing the agreement April 19. The agreement also states the clerk’s office will not contest it if Ward applies for unemployment. Cunningham had said the deal was negotiated “by the lawyers” and that Ward had not been paid yet. “The check is in the hands Jack Cunningham o f t h e l e g a l department,” Cunningham said this week. But Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon said the only role his office played was to serve as Cunningham’s attorney – as he does for all independently elected offices – including the sher-

ID is way off. Right at the start, BugGuide helpfully informed me that “There are approximately 3,500 orbweaver species worldwide, with 180 occurring north of Mexico.” That detail, combined with my somewhat limited knowledge of spider anatomy, and the fact that accurate identification often requires a look at spider body parts that are nearly inaccessible, causes me some concern. But I’m willing to say, with a level of confidence that’s around 85 percent, the creature I sat down beside is a furrow spider. If I had to pick a species I’d go with L. cornutus, because BugGuide says it’s more common in the eastern United States. So why does any of this matter? Spiders, regardless of species, are important members of food webs worldwide. As predators, they consume all manner of creepy crawlies – insects and other arthropods of which we might otherwise have too many. As prey, they help sustain many of our favorite vertebrate species. Birds like wrens and chickadees regularly feed on spiders, and many other species use them to nourish their young. (Fun fact: spiders are rich in taurine, an amino acid that plays an important role in many essential bodily functions.) Furrow spiders, big as they are, can catch much larger prey than the itsy, bitsy spiders that otherwise predominate at this time of year. Likewise, furrow spiders’ substantial bodies can provide a hefty portion of much-needed protein for hungry birds and mammals, and maybe even an amphibian or two. As we progress through spring, into summer and then

fall, the number of spiders available to sit down beside will increase exponentially. I’m not sure how Mother Goose would feel about such a prospect, but I know another mother – Mother Nature – won’t mind at all.

County Board chairman, sheriff criticize coroner By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Kane County Coroner Rob Russell’s monthly report to a committee Friday turned into a verbal lashing from County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen and Sheriff Pat Perez. Both criticized Russell for making the coroner’s office a dropoff site for unwanted prescription drugs, saying that responsibility falls under the sheriff’s office. The sheriff’s office has successfully invested time and effort into its drug takeback program, which in recent months collected about 575 pounds of prescription

Drug take-back program, morgue freezer under scrutiny medications, Perez said. He said he and his staff are offended that Russell is trying to “mission creep.” “I didn’t realize we were in competition of getting drugs off the street,” Russell said. The coroner’s office collected more than 40 pounds of prescription drugs during its open house May 3, Russell said. He noted some people feel more comfortable bringing the medications to his office than to a police station. “I’m not trying to mission creep,” Russell said. “If that offends you, sheriff, I’m sor-

ry.” In recapping the open house, Russell also shared survey results from those who toured the coroner’s facilities. The visitors described the building as “appalling,” “deplorable” and “a disgrace to residents,” the coroner said, noting his concern that a new facility isn’t part of the fiveyear capital plan. Lauzen said the coroner’s building will be included in the long-term planning process, as will other facilities currently not named in the plan.

Because a new building would be at least three to five years away, Lauzen said the coroner should address any safety concerns until then. He criticized Russell for not yet spending the $76,000 budgeted for a new walkin refrigerator and morgue freezer – items Lauzen said he thought were “urgent” needs. Russell said he asked for a new freezer before the existing one broke on Thanksgiving. Why, he said, should he buy a new freezer when he just paid $3,500 to fix the old

one? Board member Theresa Barreiro, D-Aurora, said she is shocked that Russell hasn’t bought a new freezer. She is afraid the old freezer will break down again while there is money set aside to replace it, she said. Russell invited board members to meet with him one-on-one next week so they can further talk about his office’s needs and the feedback he got from a panel of coroners about Kane’s facilities. After the meeting ad journed, Russell expressed his bewilderment over the discussion and said, “I’ve got the public opinion on my side.”

in rural Downers Grove where they farmed for 20 years. In 1966, they moved their family to their current farm in Plato Township. Along with farming, Harry loved to landscape and started his own tree nursery. Even after “retiring” he remained active, working the land and tending his yard and trees. He spent every day mowing grass or riding his gator to check on the farm. In recent years, unable to get around by himself due to the effects of Alzheimer’s, he still could be found riding around the farm and nursery with his caregivers or children. Throughout his life Harry was a dedicated Christian, serving his Church as trustee and financial assistant. When the current church was built in 1994, he visited the site nearly every day taking pictures of all aspects of the construction which he chronicled in a series of photo albums. Harry is survived by his beloved wife of 68 years, Mabel; his six children, Marilyn of Elgin, Kenneth (Sharon) of Belleville, Wis., Carol (Paul) Lindstrom of Polo, Alan (Sandra) of Elgin, Leslie of Hampshire and Roger of DeKalb; nine grandchildren, Melissa (Dan) Richardson, Meredith (Casey) Buening, Megan Maas, Matthew Lindstrom, Kayla (Dan) Vereide, Derek Lindstrom, Erica (Octavio) Perez, Joshua (Tori) Maas and David Maas; and five great-grandchildren, Zane, Jackson, and Johana Lindstrom and Brayden and Ella Vereide.

GENEVA – Andie Burchett of Geneva piled up items she was buying at The Little Traveler – a cookbook featuring recipes from all over the world, a bracelet from Guatemala, a scarf from India. Nothing unusual in shopping at the Traveler, 404 S. Third St., Geneva, but Burchett was buying items in the store’s new Fair Trade Gallery, a room that features collections from more than 40 countries. But Burchett was new to the Fair Trade Gallery. “I stumbled into it just now,” she said. “I am familiar with how the fair trade group works on the other end .... So I’m excited to see this developed here.” The designation of fair trade means artisans are paid a fair price for their goods, providing them with a sustainable market for

The Fair Trade Gallery is in one of the store’s 36 boutique rooms in what used to be antiques, Simon said. Although the gallery has only been open two weeks, it’s in a room that is a central walk-through in the store and has gotten a lot of attention from shoppers, he said. Shamloo and the sales assistant Jorie Senese will ask if a shopper knows what fair trade is, he said. “More than half the people have no idea,” Simon said. “Once they understand what it is, they will stop and look at everything. They want to know. It’s a room where people want to find a reason to buy.” For example, one of the items is a basket made in

ALLERGY ALERT

High pollen counts expected this year

By CHARLES MENCHACA Residents with allergies might face a tough transition to warm weather this year, local experts said. Remember the polar vortex? That long and brutal winter has delayed the growth of trees and the production of their pollen. Those with tree-related allergies might have enjoyed low pollen levels so far, but a “double whammy” allergy season could be in store, said Dr. Sakina Bajowala from the Kaneland Allergy and Asthma Center in North Aurora. The tree season historically has begun in early to midMarch, but it didn’t get started until April this year. That delay means the season will peak with high pollen counts during the grass season, which is expected to start this month like normal, Bajawala said. “For individuals who are allergic, they can feel pretty miserable during that time,” she said. Beyond the usual allergic symptoms of runny nose, itchy eyes and sneezing, a combination of high pollen counts could trigger trouble breathing and wheezing. An airway that’s inflamed from allergic triggers could develop into asthma, Bajawala said. She noticed her usual influx of patients came in later this year compared to past years. Dr. Priya Bansal noticed the same thing at the Asthma and Allergy Center in Bloomingdale. Instead of activity in mid-March, Bansal started seeing patients come in two weeks later. The polar vortex might have contributed, but the pollen counts collected in the Chicago area keep increasing year after year, said Bansal, the previous president of the Illinois Society of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. Like Bansal, Beth Koch of Sugar Grove recommends that people take their allergy medications a month before the season hits. “A lot of people don’t think ahead – they wait until [their

Know more Some allergies are caused by various pollens in the environment. There are several pollen count stations certified by National Allergy Bureau across the country. To get daily readings from the certified Chicago-area pollen count station, visit: http://pollen.aaaai.org/nab/ index.cfm?p=allergenreport&stationid=147. allergies] are bad,” Koch said. Koch said she used to bathe her son every day to make sure the pollen was out of his hair. She noticed he had spring allergies as early as two years old. Koch recommends that parents start charting when their children display allergy symptoms; when they occur and what the weather was like at the time. Treatment for the Koch family includes immunotherapy in the form of allergy shots, and over-the-counter medicine. Koch said it has made a world of difference for her family. Another person who has thrived with immunotherapy is Tom Moeller of North Aurora. Moeller said he is allergic

OPINIONS OUR VIEW

Clerk should know rules, play by them The Kane County Clerk’s Office has offered up a 1-2 punch of folly in recent months. Accountability begins at the top, with Kane County Clerk Jack Cunningham. Cunningham apologized earlier this week for using the county’s server to work on his re-election campaign. Elected officials are not allowed to use taxpayer-funded time or resources to further their campaign-related agendas, a policy that should be fresh in local politicians’ minds after Geneva Mayor Kevin Burns ran into similar trouble in 2012 while campaigning for County Board chairman. Either Cunningham knew what he did was wrong or he was uninformed about this commonly understood campaign disclosure law. Neither scenario paints a flattering picture for Cunningham, who has a history of difficulty following the rules. His bid for a Republican nomination for a U.S. House of Representatives seat in 2012 was dashed after the Illinois State Board of Elections ruled that he lacked enough valid petition signatures to be nominated. Cunningham does not plan to step down, saying “nowhere in my literature do I say I’m perfect.” We’re not asking for perfection, but a seasoned public official such as Cunningham – he has been Kane County clerk since 2002, and has a legal background – should know better than this. To make matters worse, Cunningham’s former deputy clerk – Jeff Ward – is due severance pay of more than $11,000 after Ward also did campaign work for Cunningham’s primary race on the county server. Ward had been suspended five days for that issue, and he is no longer an employee of the clerk’s office. Yes, Cunningham did discipline Ward for inappropriately using the county’s email system, but it appears Ward was just following the office’s standard operating procedure. Cunningham is vying for his fourth term in office in November’s general election, so far with no Democratic challenger. He has had some achievements during his tenure, helping oversee the modernization of the office amid fast-changing technology. But while Cunningham has had trouble recalling campaign disclosure law as it affects his office, voters might prove to have longer memories.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR A power grab To the Editor: I am one of a small group of dads who started the St. Charles co-op high school lacrosse club almost 20 years ago. A combination of talented athletes, dedicated coaching and outstanding parental support has led both East and North teams to now be consistently ranked among the top teams in the state. Kaneland lacks a co-op team, so four of their ambitious freshmen players joined the Geneva club to continue their dreams of playing high school lacrosse. Lacrosse is not an official Illinois High School Association-approved sport at this time, but that has not stopped the Upstate Eight Conference from interjecting itself into these young players’ lives under the pretense that lacrosse is an emerging sport. Therefore, the conference has decreed that the Kaneland players cannot join Geneva, stating that

allowing these young men to continue to pursue their love of the sport with Geneva would set a bad precedent. What an utterly disgraceful and arrogant action on their part. Exactly what bad precedent are they afraid of? The precedent of letting young athletes fulfill their dreams, or allowing the sport to continue to grow and flourish, or rewarding dedicated athletes by encouraging their opportunity to compete? In my opinion, this is a disgusting power grab by a misguided organization exercising self-serving judgment, and simply intent on protecting their little fiefdom within the popular sport of lacrosse. Sadly, this is being done at the expense of the young athletes they are supposed to be encouraging and developing. The Geneva club is a private entity, and these young men are private individuals. The Upstate Eight has no right of jurisdiction

over their lives at this point and hopefully never will. However, the organizations are right on one point – lacrosse is definitely an emerging sport. A recent Wall Street Journal article cited that participation in certain youth sports is down 4 percent in some areas, but an exception is lacrosse, with participation in 2012 up 158 percent from 2008, with 770,000 youth involved organizationally. If the club structure in Illinois votes to join the IHSA, they will forever lose control over the sport they have worked so hard to develop. The Upstate Eight has now sent a clear message as to how it intends to extend its insidious tentacles, and it is an ominous warning of what is to come. Do not let it happen.

My husband and I were discussing the status of the country today. We were talking about our kids actually making less money and being worse off than we were, and we were always striving to make our lives better for our kids. Our parents were always wanting to make life better for their kids, and we were working to do the same for our kids. Instead, their income is steadily falling. Taxes are steadily growing. Their spendable income has declined to the point where most of the kids today are almost at the poverty level. Then I read in the paper that the gambling revenues from the Elgin and Aurora casinos go to fund special grants for charities. Well, what about the people who are paying taxes? Shouldn’t charity be voluntary? Shouldn’t they go out and raise funds like they used to, instead of having to take our tax dollars? Shouldn’t the taxes from the casinos go to lowering the taxes of the citizens instead of having these constant increases in taxes? I don’t know about the rest of the people, but my real estate taxes went up again this year, even though our housing values keep dropping. And I’m not complaining about the housing value dropping because real estate taxes are a tax on unrealized capital gains, and we should never be taxed

on unrealized capital gains. Things need to change. We need to look at what we’re doing. Our tax dollars should be going to fund roads, bridges and other things, not charities.

Throw them all out Illinois voters are cattle. We continue to follow and vote for the same politicians, and we wonder why things never improve here in Illinios.

If these politicians actually feared they would lose their job and have to get a real job, they would actually listen and stop spending and actually reduce our taxes. This would be a shock. Unless we voters wake up and throw them all out, there is no hope, and we will get what we deserve.

Kaneland fights off field for title

Kane County Meet team standings

kdruley@shawmedia.com STREAMWOOD – Kaneland captured a Kane County boys track and field title Friday on Cook County soil. File that under the category “potentially profound.” The Knights already were deep before the meet started. Winning six of 18 events in a competition hosted by South Elgin but held at Streamwood, Kaneland scored 128 points to defend its county title. Next up: hitting strides in next week’s Northern Illinois Big 12 conference meet, then the Class 2A state series. “We all know that we’re just as good as one another, so we’re always pushing in practice and we’re challenging each other,” Knights junior middle distance runner Andrew Lesak said. “We just have the mentality that we’re always going to hit those fast times, and we do.” Runner-up Batavia scored 77 points, while St. Charles East had 68 to take third among 15 teams. Kaneland opened the track finals with a narrow victory against Batavia in the 4x800-meter relay. Knights anchor Nathaniel Kucera traded the lead with Bulldogs counterpart Ryan Wieties in the last lap before Kucera discovered the final kick to help Kaneland finish in 8:00.64 – .53 seconds ahead of Batavia. As Lesak told it, the effort resembled something of a flu relay. The same group in a different order was about 10 seconds faster at the Knights’ Peterson Prep meet in late April. “All of us are really sick,” said Lesak, who flanks Division I-bound seniors Kucera (Stanford), Kyle Carter (Southern Illinois) and Luis Acosta (Western Illinois). “I got sick just after Peterson. Nathaniel just got sick. Kyle has been sick. … We’re just hoping next week is better.” East’s Devon Kelly did little to ease any queasiness in the second event, the 4x100.

The Saints’ winning time of 43.59 edged the Knights by .08 seconds. Kelly, usually the group’s second leg, knew he had to cover the same distance whether the crowd was shouting at his side or not. “I was like, ‘Gotta get out, gotta get out.’ If I don’t do good, the rest of the guys won’t, so just got to come out strong,” Kelly said. The same Saints quartet later won the 4x200 in 1:30.7. Double vision was prevalent elsewhere. Burlington Central junior Lucas Ege, still smarting a tad from the Rockets missing the Peterson meet because of prom, swept the hurdles events, winning the 110s in 14.63 and the 300s in 38.85. “The best part about tonight for competition was I just knew Kaneland was out for me, and knew they really wanted to kill me. That just got me pumped,” Ege said. “That made me run a lot faster. I think my main motivation was the [300] record for county.”

Although Ege missed that by about .6 seconds, he felt like he accomplished the next best thing by topping Knights Brock Robertson and Dylan Nauert for second and third. Per usual, Kaneland proved plenty resilient, especially in the field events. Ben Barnes won the long jump (22-9¼), while Dylan Kuipers cleared 15-3½ in the pole vault to establish a new PR. Thrower Nate Dyer placed first in the shot put (55-2) and discus (153-11). “Our field events, oh, they’ve been awesome,” Carter said. “They don’t get enough notice all the time.” Marmion senior Tyler Maryanski maintained a solid recent stretch by clearing 6 feet, 11 inches to win the high jump. The standard eclipsed his previous personal best of 6-7, set Tuesday in a home triangular.

NIU offer ‘surreal’ for Santacaterina Daniel Santacaterina has looked up to Northern Illinois football players predating his arrival in high school as his big brother, Michael, launched his career with the Huskies. Chances grew this week that before too long Santacaterina could look at the Huskies from a different vantage point – eye-to-eye in the huddle. NIU became the Geneva junior quarterback’s first scholarship offer after assistant coaches watched Santacaterina throw at Burgess Field after school Wednesday. “I’ve always kind of looked up to those guys,” Santacaterina said. “It’s been fun going to the games. I didn’t believe I could go there until just this year, I started believing maybe I could be an NIU Huskie some day. It’s just exciting. It’s kind of surreal right now that I could play there one day after watching the team throughout the last four or five years.” Michael Santacaterina will be a fifth-year senior linebacker for the Huskies as

Daniel turns his attention to his senior season at Geneva in the fall. Santacaterina had a feeling a scholarship offer was coming soon after he and Michael Santacaterina recently met with Huskies head coach Rod Carey in DeKalb. On Wednesday, Santacaterina threw in Geneva under the watchful eyes of NIU offensive coordinator Bob Cole and assistant coach Craig Harmon. “I threw for 15, 20 minutes, and they said they saw what they needed to see, and they sat me down and said we’ll get you on the phone with Coach Carey, and they offered,” Santacaterina said. Santacaterina said he wasn’t especially nervous to air it out in front of the NIU coaches. “I just went through a Rivals camp [on Sunday at Maine South] so that was kind of my practice for throwing in that kind of environment with people watching and a lot of talent there, so I got a feel of what it

PREP ZONE Jay Schwab was going to be like,” Santacaterina said. “I’ve thrown for other schools before. If you do what you know you’re good at, everything takes care of itself, really.” Santacaterina, who said he’s up to about 6-foot-2, 193 pounds, became Geneva’s varsity quarterback as a sophomore, but missed much of the season with a broken collarbone. He came back healthy – and productive – as a junior, guiding a prolific Vikings offense that included receiving standouts Kyle Brown and Pace Temple. Temple also is being evaluated by NIU and others, and Santacaterina said he’d love to play college football with his classmate. “If I could play with Pace, that’d be big,” said Santacaterina, who credited his Vikings

teammates for helping raise his profile. “I mean if a team says ‘Hey, we’re offering you and Pace,’ that’s a big recruiting tool they could use because I would love to do that and he would love to do that, too. Just the chemistry we’ve had since day one, I think we become friends in sixth grade, and we’ve been brothers ever since.” As enthused as Santacaterina is to be courted by NIU, he is open to other overtures. He plans an upcoming visit to Minnesota and will make the rounds on the summer camp circuit. But it might take a dynamite recruiting pitch to upstage NIU, with all of its connections. Santacaterina’s one-time Geneva role model under center, Matt Williams, is a former NIU quarterback, and Santacaterina is friends with ex-Huskies star Chandler Harnish, who preceded Heisman Trophy finalist Jordan Lynch as a star for the Mid-American Conference powerhouse.

“They kind of set the standard for Huskie quarterbacks,” Santacaterina said. “If I could be part of that, I’d have some big shoes to fill.” Santos moving on: Former Geneva boys basketball player KJ Santos is leaving Vermont Academy, where he attended prep school this year, he announced Friday. There is no plan in place yet for where Santos will attend next year, according to his father, Joe Santos. Santos, a sweet-shooting, 6-foot-8 guard, saw time on the Vikings’ varsity late in 201213, his sophomore year. He reclassified as a class of 2016 recruit after heading to prep school. Santos holds Division I scholarship offers from schools such as West Virginia, Oklahoma, DePaul, Iowa, Xavier and Virginia Commonwealth. • Jay Schwab is sports editor of the Kane County Chronicle.

GENEVA 3, ST. CHARLES EAST 1

Geneva kept Saints from tying North for conference title By JAY SCHWAB jschwab@shawmedia.com

• Saturday, May 10, 2014 *

GENEVA – She’s a talented guard in basketball, it’s no surprise that fast-break soccer agrees with Geneva senior Michaela Loebel. Loebel excelled in a match with ample end-to-end action Friday night at Burgess Field as the Geneva girls soccer team topped St. Charles East, 3-1. “That was very fun,” Loebel said. “That’s probably the best game of soccer to have is when it’s back and forth, it’s not slow at all, it’s just fast. You don’t have time to think about it. You just react.” Vikings coach Megan Owens loved what she saw as her Vikings (12-4-2, 5-1 Upstate Eight Conference River) prevented St. Charles East from tying St. Charles North for the conference championship. “I think this was our strongest game offensively of the season,” Owens said. “Michaela Loebel played amazing. I think she’s finally getting back to the point where she was before she hurt her knee. She played a terrific game. “Sam Hauser did a great job second half in net. Defensively, we were solid. We played solid throughout. It’s awesome to see as a coach with the postseason approaching.” East (12-4-3, 4-1-1 UEC River) had a lot riding on the match, prompting coach Paul Jennison to call the Saints’ response to Friday’s loss “a big, defining moment of how our season’s going to go.” “We can’t beat ourselves up too much – the bottom line is in the big game, you’ve got to bring it,” Jennison said. “End of discussion, you’ve got to bring your best game, and unfortunately we weren’t quite there tonight.” East started in attack mode but failed to cash in, and the momentum gradually flipped the Vikings’ way.

ABOVE: Geneva’s Mary Landry kicks the ball away from St. Charles East’s Anna Corirosi during Friday’s match in Geneva. Landry had two goals in the match as Geneva won, 3-1. BELOW: St. Charles East’s Ally Potterton heads the ball. Loebel, a Nebraska recruit, opened the scoring with 15:06 to play in the first half by outworking an East defender for a shooting angle and firing one past goalkeeper Kendra Sheehan from about 15 yards out off a Mary Landry assist. “It’s just one of those things where I can’t think about it – when I think about it, that’s when I mess up,” Loebel said. “I didn’t have time to think, I just had time to react, so I think that’s why it was a successful goal.” The score remained 1-0 at halftime, but Geneva added a second goal midway through the second half as Landry ended a fierce Geneva push by tapping one in off a Courtney Lardas assist. Lardas was proud of the amount of support the Vikings had on the attack to create the goal. “I just looked to cross the ball,” Lardas said. “We’ve been working a lot in prac-

tice at finishing the crosses, and I’m just glad we got on it. … I thought everyone ran up which is really good because in the past we wouldn’t have anyone there so I think we’re improving as the season goes on with that.” East closed within 2-1 with 14:07 to play in the second half as Loebel’s future college

teammate – Amanda Hilton – scored off a Julia Peterson assist. East, needing a win, not a draw, to tie for the conference title, pushed forward emphatically in the late stages, creating a few prime chances for the counter-attacking Vikings down the stretch. The Vikings cashed in with

5:46 to go as Loebel dribbled toward the end line, then cut it back in before delivering a smooth feed to the wide-open Landry, who banged in her second goal of the night for the final margin. Hauser (10 saves) turned in her second strong showing against East this season; the Vikings blanked the Saints, 1-0, last month at the Rose Augsburg Drach Invitational. The Friday night match – a rarity – drew a nice crowd to Burgess Field, and the Vikings rose to the occasion by putting on quite a show to finish second place in the UEC River. “I’m just tremendously proud of my kids,” Owens said. “They stepped up. There was a lot going on this week. With senior night and stuff it would have been easy for them to check out because we didn’t have as much riding on this game as East, so I was just very proud of how we played.”

Big bats lead North Stars over Vikings

* Kane County Chronicle / KCChronicle.com

• Saturday, May 10, 2014

BY THOMAS DELVES editorial@kcchronicle.com GENEVA – The St. Charles North softball team pounded its way to another win over a Tri-Cities rival. Mickey Goetz, Allison Hausl and Jordyn Wolfe had three hits each for the North Stars, who beat Geneva for the second time this week, 174, in five innings on Friday. “Waiting on the ball was my main thought process,”

Goetz said. “Defensively we were a little shaky in the beginning, but I think our bats made us more confident.” Goetz (six RBIs) had an RBI single in the first and an RBI double in the second and third innings. Center fielder Andrea Beal added four RBIs, going 3 for 3 with two doubles and a walk. Defensively the North Stars (15-6, 11-2 UEC River) played well, as did starting

pitcher Allison Hausl, who was told only an hour before the game she would be pitching. Hausl pitched all five innings, striking out three and walking one. “I thought we were aggressive today trying to make plays,” St. Charles North coach Tom Poulin said, “… We caught them (Geneva) on the right day, they’re a very good team and we came through with some clutch hits and played well defen-

sively.” St. Charles North put its leadoff hitter on base in the first four innings and all came around to score. Rachel Fanella took the circle for the Vikings and pitched all five innings. Fanella has pitched in the last seven games for Geneva (13-10, 6-7 UEC River). The Vikings’ scoring was highlighted by freshman Annika Radabaugh’s solo home run in the third inning. It was

her sixth of the season and is now closing in on Geneva’s single season record of eight. The Vikings have had a rough week but Geneva coach Greg Dierks was encouraged by his team’s fight. “They’re staying in there and they’re fighting and they have pride,” Dierks said, “they’re working hard and they’re going to get rewarded here coming up.” Geneva resumes conference play today at Larkin.

St. Charles North boat leads local contingent

Hankins, Cougars rally past Bees

KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE CARLYLE – More than one-third of the 66-boat field at Friday’s opening day of the IHSA bass fishing state tournament went without a bite at downstate Carlyle Lake. The three boats from the Tri-Cities were not among that number. St. Charles North’s boat No. 2 led the way, ending the day 15th with a haul of five fish weighing 8 pounds, 10 ounces. Jake Lewandowski reeled in the group’s big bass with a catch weighing 2 pounds, 10 ounces. “Action was good early,” North boat captain Dave Fuerst said. “We had probably three fish by 9 [a.m.], and then we went cold for quite awhile and literally in the final five minutes of the day caught our final two keeper fish.” Day 1 competition began at 7 a.m. and ended around 1:30 p.m. – 90 minutes earlier than initially scheduled – due to incoming storms. “It would have been nice to fish a little longer, but safety first, of course,” Fuerst said. The tournament concludes with fishing from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. today. Geneva (21st place) and North’s boat No. 1 (29th) also were part of the field.

The St. Charles North bass fishing team, which currently resides in 15th place after Day 1 of the IHSA state finals. This five-fish limit weighed 8.9 pounds was caught Friday by Carter Heflen (left), Matt Fredericksen and Jake Lewandowski. Day 2 of the competition is today at Lake Carlyle in Carlyle. via, the host Bulldogs scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh to win a wild UEC River game after spotting the Maroons an 8-0 lead in the first inning. Ryanne Rokos and Toni Galas had three hits each and Nicole Peercy pitched six innings of one-run relief for the Bulldogs.

St. Charles East 13, Streamwood 3 (5 inn.): At Streamwood, East scored 10 runs in the top of the fifth in polishing off Streamwood. Sarah Collalti (2 for 4, three RBIs) and winning pitcher Alex Latoria

(2 for 4, two RBIs) helped stir the offense for East (23-5, 13-2 UEC River).

Marian Central 8, Wheaton Academy 2: At Woodstock, Wheaton Academy (12-8, 7-5) dropped the SCC contest.

BADMINTON Sectionals: St. Charles East placed fourth out of five teams at the Buffalo Grove Sectional while St. Charles North finished fifth out of six teams at the Glenbard North Sectional. Geneva, which hosted a sectional Thursday, produced three qualifying entries. Mela-

nie Burkhardt won the singles competition, while the doubles team of Cara Birschbach and Nila Kannankeril also earned a sectional crown. The doubles team of Elena Kelly and Halle Marten advanced, as well. The state tournament will be May 16-17 at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston.

BOYS LACROSSE Libertyville 8, St. Charles North 7 (2OT): North’s Keegan Well scored at the end of regulation to force overtime but the North Stars fell just short.

BURLINGTON, Iowa – The fact that the Cougars won their second game in a row with the score of 5-2 isn’t the most unusual take from Friday’s game. What also comes as a surprise is the four runs the Cougars scored in each of the final two innings of both ballgames. It was another three-run frame that put the Cougars on top over the Bees at Community Field Friday night. With the Cougars trailing, 2-1, Daniel Lockhart kick-started the eighth inning with a leadoff double. Jordan Hankins then took a chance on a 3-0 pitch and sent it over the right field wall. Hankins’ first home run of the season put the Cougars (25-10) on top, 3-2. Trey Martin kept the line moving following up with a walk and scored on Carlos Penalver’s RBI single for a two-run Cougars lead. The Cougars will go for the sweep at 6:30 p.m. today from Community Field.

When did you mostly hit that growth spurt to get up to 6-8? Kind of summer into freshman year, that was probably my biggest growth spurt, and it’s been a couple inches every year ever since.

Do you have a lot of height in your immediate family? My mom and dad are both 6-foot but some distant cousins I guess are pretty tall.

How did you get into volleyball? Freshman year the basketball coach (Scott Hennig) was also doing freshman boys volleyball for the first year

How would you assess how this season is going? We’re a pretty young team so we have a lot of inconsistencies but as the season’s progressing we’re able to rid ourselves of those inconsistencies. Every match we’re playing a little better. So far in conference we’re doing pretty well and starting to develop that chemistry that a volleyball team needs.

Do you feel like you’re capable of being an intimidating presence at the net at your size? For sure. Whenever there’s a big guy at the net, the other team always worries about that bigger guy. For me going

up to block, they never set it over to my side because why take the risk? It goes the same for our middle [6-foot-4 Sam Wulfkuhle], they never set it when he’s by them.

Is it hard to stay locked in, not only just with volleyball but on school, once the calendar hits May? Yeah, it’s a big cluster of sports and school and the weather finally stating to get nice, so a lot of us have trouble keeping [focused] on sectional finals and the conference championship and state and everything. We have a lot of commitment issues with the team. We’re young guys, so it’s expected but it’s definitely an issue.

Geneva junior boys volleyball outside hitter Nick Buseski is charting his own athletic path. The 6-foot-8 Buseski’s Yugoslavian-born father, Tomo, played college soccer, but after a major growth spurt, it’s only natural that Buseski is building his reputation in a sport like volleyball. Buseski also has played defensive line in football but likely will narrow his focus to club volleyball over the summer in hopes of eventually playing in college.

Cougars relievers Zack Godley (left) and Justin Amlung held their ground in a bullpen standoff against Burlington well past Sunday’s final out.

Bullpen stands, delivers camaraderie GENEVA – Cougars right-handers Justin Amlung and Zack Godley literally stood up Sunday to the longtime charges that baseball is dull. If a sport with no clock can grate on some fans, perhaps they should try what Amlung and Godley did in a series finale against Burlington. The minor leagues have produced bullpen stand-offs before, but this one extended 90 minutes beyond the game’s 2 hour, 52-minute running time. Managers from both sides eventually mediated as Amlung and Godley tried to stay on their feet longer than a group of Bees, if only because Burlington had to board the bus back home to Iowa. “It ended up going a lot longer than we had anticipated, but, I mean, it was a good experience. It was a good time,” Godley said. “It’s always a good thing to do to help the bonding experience with the guys.” Godley earned a promotion to Advanced-A Daytona the day after the stand-off, learning the parent Cubs had given the nod shortly after recording his seventh save.

VIEWS Kevin Druley On Wednesday, Amlung pitched a season-high six innings in an emergency start for Juan Paniagua. Point being: Bullpen stand-offs aren’t the stuff of Max “The Clown Prince of Baseball” Patkin. Over 140 games in what is the first full professional season for most in the Midwest League, they simply help break up the monotony. Stand-offs seldom are announced or planned. Relievers take stock of their counterparts’ sitting tendencies after the national anthem and stay on their feet until someone relents. Sunday offered the rare stalemate. That it was getaway day ahead of the Bees’ 215-mile trip home added even more intrigue. “We figured they would go maybe five minutes after the game, but then their coach ended up going over and telling them, ‘Hey, I don’t want y’all

to move. I want you to stay here,’ ” Godley said. Cougars officials said Minor League Baseball could not confirm whether the stand-off set any longevity records. “Had to be close,” Amlung said. “We were standing for an hour and a half after the game.” Those that didn’t join them still had a pulse on their teammates’ effort. The reserves who came from the Cougars’ first-base side dugout to play catch with right fielder Trey Martin realized Amlung and Godley weren’t providing a standing ovation, after all. “It’s just kind of fun to see little jokes like that,” infielder Jordan Hankins said. “That’s just the type of team we are. We’re just really laid back, and we just play the game and we have fun. Just little things like that make us come together.” • Kevin Druley is a sportswriter for the Kane County Chronicle.

Star watch Yorkville resident Aaron Nieckula, the Cougars’ all-time winningest manager with 285 victories in four seasons, visited Fifth Third Bank Ballpark during this week’s homestand. Nieckula, now managing Double-A Midland in the Oakland system, was home as part of a three-day vacation. The Cubs do not offer field staff similar compensation. “Some organizations do that. I think it’s about half and half,” Cougars manager Mark Johnson said. “I think we might be doing that, have something like that, maybe next year.”

Noteworthy The Cougars outscored opponents, 84-39, in their recently-concluded 11-game home winning streak. ... Ten Cougars had at least 10 RBIs entering Friday’s game at Burlington. ... Right-hander Juan Panigua returned Thursday from visiting his ailing grandmother in his native Domincan Republic and pitched in the team’s extra-inning win against the Bees. ... Burlington squandered a 17-1 lead after five innings Wednesday, eventually losing to Clinton, 20-17, in 12 innings. ... Athletic trainer Jonathan Fierro’s father, John, served the Cubs, Phoenix Coyotes and USA Baseball in the same capacity. – Kevin Druley, kdruley@shawmedia.com

Education is key According to a press release issued by the Batavia Police Department on Monday, disciplinary action may be taken by Batavia Public School District 101, but no criminal charges will be brought against any of the Batavia middle-schoolers found to be involved in the recent “sexting” issue. This is good news. I’m delighted to learn that police and BPS staff, along with Kane County judges and staff from the Illinois Judges Association, plan to collaborate on efforts to educate students and parents in the proper and improper uses of social media – and their consequences. Parents learned from a Rotolo Middle School announcement on Thursday that an educational presentation “Seven Reasons to Leave the Party” will be given to all Batavia eighth-graders May 15, during school hours, and will be repeated that evening, beginning at 6:30 p.m., in the RMS cafeteria. Difficult teen choices, illegal substances, and the appropriate use of technology will be discussed. Parents are invited to attend any of these presentations. While certainly a scheduling challenge, I sure hope this program will also be made available to sixth- and

TALES FROM THE MOTHERHOOD Jennifer DuBose seventh-graders and their folks, too. As we’ve seen from recent events, eighth grade is too late to begin the conversation. The police release also urges that discussions with kids about these concerns should happen “regularly.” Yes, indeed. Early, and often, and then a few more times for good measure. You know, just like discussions about relationships and whose turn it is to walk the dog. They each elicit the same reaction in my house. People scatter! Don’t let that apparent disinterest dissuade you from talking with your children, though. They may never give you the satisfaction of acknowledging that they hear you or even appreciate your words, but a few of them will sink in – and will make a difference. Last week, I mentioned the huge impact on children’s developing self-esteem that adults and parents can have, when they teach and model their own self-ac-

‘Sexting’ situation prompts discussion of improper uses, consequences of social media ceptance. I believe this has a direct correlation on kids listening more to their own guts, instead of to other pressures from peers and media. Whatever else these parent/police/school-initiated discussions entail, I am hopeful that first and foremost, kids will hear loud and clear that the adults “get it,” that it’s absolutely normal for adolescents to become sexually curious as they mature. (Many adults will recall sneaking peeks at their Dads’ old Playboy Magazines, for example. Remember?) This kind of curiosity is not weird, it’s normal. But combine that with nifty new technology, and adolescents’ even bigger – and also normal – drive to “belong” and be accepted by their peers (which, it should be noted, often overrides the ability to fully comprehend and heed concerns about consequences, which is why regular education and parental supervision is needed), and it’s no surprise the “sexting” thing happens. Remember what it felt like to be young and naturally hungry for the reassurance borne of having our peers let us “in?” (Heck, that’s true for some adults, too, but mature brains and strong spirits truly can make a huge difference.) Friend and veteran mom Janice

Carmany (whose kids are now adults) recently shared a recollection from her own youth, with me. She permitted me to reprint her comments here, as I think they speak so well to what we parents and others must bear in mind as we embark on efforts to support and educate our kids: “…I remember being in eighth grade and participating in the writing of a ‘dirty’ novel with a group of friends. It was all raunchy fantasy based on absolutely NO experience. We got caught, scolded and embarrassed ... sigh ... and we all got over it. The shared notebook has now become the shared texting – more personal, more far-reaching, more disturbing. The motives, I believe, are the same, but now adolescents are exploring sexuality in a very confusing time of life (puberty) in a society with very distorted views of popularity and sexuality. ‘Who am I? How do I measure up?’” I think she’s right. Who among us hasn’t wondered the very same thing?

Leave foliage after spring bulbs bloom We all love the appeal of spring bulbs, especially while they’re blooming. But what do you do with the bulbs and leaves once they’ve bloomed? Even though the flowers are gone, the foliage is working hard through the process of photosynthesis to store food in the bulb before its dormancy during the summer. Once the rain begins in the fall, the roots start reaching out for moisture to use through the winter and propel them into their blooming season. Early bloomers like crocuses, Chionodoxa (glory of the snow), Galanthus (snow drops) and squill have blade-like leaves that die off quickly after blooming

LEARNING TO GROW Jody Lay and disappear before you even notice. If you’re adamant about moving or digging up these bulbs, you should wait until the leaves begin to yellow. Several of these early bloomers spread so you can try to move the bulbs back to your beds or simply mow over the foliage once the leaves are done. Tulips, hyacinths and daffodils have larger, green foliage that continue to feed the bulbs

up to a month, depending on the sun exposure. Many gardeners hide the leaves among fresh annuals or summer perennials, like hostas or daylilies, until they die off naturally. Other gardeners try fun things, like braiding the leaves, so the bulb can complete its process. The important thing is to realize the photosynthesis process your bulb needs to generate next year’s bloom. If you fertilize, it should be done after blooming but well before the leaves yellow to be sure the bulbs takes in the nutrients before entering dormancy.

• BLOOMS Continued from page 31 Once the leaves begin to yellow you can trim back the foliage and dig up your bulbs to replant in a new spot in the fall. If you dig up your bulbs, clean off all of the soil, inspect them for disease or damage and store them in a cool dry spot, ideally 55 to 65 degrees. Do not divide or separate your bulbs until you replant them in the fall. I use a burlap sack, which allows for air flow, to store my bulbs but many people use a bin of peat or old newspapers. Be sure to label your bulbs and store like bulbs together. To prevent overcrowding, daffodils and crocuses should be divided every five years. Proper care and storage will give you years of beautiful spring blooms!

Your enthusiasm and creativity will persuade others to join in your plans. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Climb the ladder of success instead of helping and watching others get ahead. Start making the moves that will ensure your prosperity. Put your innovative ideas in motion. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Follow your dreams and unleash your creative talent.

Research and travel will come into play as you continue your quest for knowledge. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – An older family member may resist some changes you are considering making.

Mull over the options available, and you’ll choose the correct one.

“Fed Up” is the latest in a line of documentaries that critique the American diet.

‘Fed Up’: Making us fat, on a grand scale By MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN The Washington Post The latest in a line of documentaries critiquing the American diet, “Fed Up” quickly zeroes in on what would appear to be its villain. According to the film, added sugar, in all forms – including not just the demonized high-fructose corn syrup, but also more natural-sounding throwbacks such as “pure” cane sugar – is almost single-handedly responsible for what one interview subject calls the obesity tsunami sweeping the nation, as well as the sharp rise in diabetes. Of course, the increased sugar in processed foods is just the weapon that’s killing us, according to director Stephanie Soechtig and journalist Katie Couric, who narrates and produced the informative and at times anger-inducing film. The real culprit, “Fed Up” argues, is an industry pushing sugar-laden junk food on an unsuspecting public. One particularly telling commentary – and a source of grim, if unintended, humor – comes from a mother struggling to help her obese teenager find more healthful meal options. (The movie is structured around interviews with several morbidly obese adolescents and their families.) Recently, Mom tells us, she switched from buying Hot Pockets to buying

“lean” Hot Pockets. Though meant sincerely, the line deserves to be met with a derisive snort. There’s a reason federally mandated nutrition labels list the “daily value” percentage for everything in that Hot Pocket – fat, sodium, carbs, protein, etc. – except sugar. That’s because even foods that are labeled dietetic typically contain more sugar than the Food and Drug Administration considers healthy. When you take the fat out of food, there goes the flavor, too. You’ve got to give people another reason to crave it. What this suggests is that the real problem isn’t sugar, but sugar education. If consumers only knew that the stuff is not just addictive, but poisonous – one of the film’s experts calls it a “chronic, dose-dependent” liver toxin – they might make better choices at the checkout counter. Unfortunately, “Fed Up” doesn’t seem to recognize the problem of food deserts, which can hamstring even the best-intentioned efforts to teach people how to eat right. (For an exposé of the food desert phenomenon, in which many communities simply don’t have options other than buying processed foods, I strongly recommend the 2012 documentary “A Place at the Table.”) Celebrities appearing in “Fed Up” include former President Bill Clinton

and former FDA Commissioner David A. Kessler, both of whom bemoan the lack of government foresight on obesity and diabetes. (Opponents of so-called “nanny state” efforts to regulate, say, soft drink size are given short shrift.) But it’s author-activist Michael Pollan who delivers the film’s most succinct message when he says that the single best way to improve one’s diet is simply to cook what you eat. And no, that doesn’t mean microwaving a Hot Pocket. Making dinner from scratch can be a challenge for people pressed for time, inspiration and cash. Subsidies propping up the fast-food and processed-food industries often make it cheaper and more convenient to buy prepared foods than wholesome ingredients. Change, according to the film, isn’t going to happen unless it comes in the form of a revolution. For that reason, “Fed Up” isn’t so much a warning to the ignorant shopper or a tip for the unimaginative chef as it is a rallying cry. It succeeds in firing up the choir. Whether it will convert the complacent is an open question.

• “Fed Up” received three out of four stars. The film is rated PG and contains thematic elements, such as images of smoking, and brief mild language. It runs 99 minutes.

| ADVICE

34

Girl’s low self-esteem drags boyfriend down Teen’s fiance is a loser Dear Abby: I’m 16, and I need help. I have been in a relationship with my girlfriend, “Bailey,” for six months and things are complicated. She’s very insecure, and it’s hard to keep her happy for any extended period of time. I have thought about breaking up with her because I want her to be happy, and the same goes for me. But then I think I’d rather be miserable at times and happy at others and be with her. Please give me some advice. I love Bailey and I don’t know what to do. – Lost In Arizona Dear Lost: Have a talk with Bailey and tell her that although you love her, her insecurity and mood swings make it difficult. If you do, it may give her something to think about. The problem with insecurity is it can eventually drive a boyfriend – or girlfriend – away. P.S. There is truth to the saying that you can’t MAKE someone happy; happiness has to come from within. Dear Abby: My boyfriend and I are in our 40s and have been living together for several years. The house we live in is in his name only, and he pays the mortgage.

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips I own a townhouse I bought before I met him, and I make the payments on it. People often ask us why I don’t sell it. I usually give some excuse, but the real reason is, when he drafted his will, he left everything to his mother – at her insistence. He seems to think it’s too much trouble and expensive to change his will to include me. I want to be sure I have a place to live, so I have kept my townhouse. What’s your opinion? – Hedging My Bets In Texas Dear Hedging: I think you are behaving rationally, because it should be quite clear that your boyfriend wants his assets to go to his mother – not you – in the event of his death. I hope you have your townhouse rented and are saving the income, because you may need the money later. That way, if your boyfriend suddenly keels over or the romance sours, you won’t be left with nothing but

memories.

Dear Abby: My niece confided in me that she and her fiance eloped. Her parents are planning her wedding for next month. I tried to advise her to tell her parents, but she still hasn’t. She’s living at home and her “fiance” lives in a different city. I don’t pretend to understand why they felt like doing this. Should I just sit back while she continues to lie to her parents while they plan on her getting “married” in a month? I’m at a loss. I wanted to give her a chance to come clean, but because she hasn’t, do I intervene? Do I threaten that if she doesn’t fess up, I’ll spill the beans? Or should I just let her keep heading down the road she’s on? – Anxious Aunt Dear Anxious: What do you think you will accomplish by breaking your niece’s confidence? If you divulge what she told you, she will never trust you again. I’ll give you my advice in four words: Keep your mouth shut. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Gentle but thorough hygiene can relieve anal itching Dear Doctor K: I’m embarrassed to ask this question, but here goes: The area around my anus itches constantly. What can I do? Dear Reader: I’m sure other people have this issue and are also embarrassed to ask about it – so I’m glad you did. When my patients mention this problem to me, I ask them how long it’s been bothering them. They often say several years. Since they’ve seen me several times during those several years, and they’re mentioning it only now, it means they’ve had difficulty talking about it. Talking about your private areas is not easy. Many things can cause anal itch. Here are the most common: • Stool on the skin, even a small amount left behind after a bowel movement. Stool has within it substances that cause mild inflammation of the skin. • Irritating foods or beverages: spicy foods, coffee, tea, colas, milk, alcohol, chocolate, citrus fruits, vitamin C tablets and tomatoes. • Antibiotics, which can disturb the normal balance of bacteria in the intestines. Some kinds of bacteria that live in the gut make substances that cause skin inflam-

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff mation. • Irritation or allergy from chemicals and medications. Major culprits include antibacterial soaps, dyes and perfumes in toilet paper, feminine hygiene sprays and deodorants, medicated talcum powders, medicated skin cleansers and topical medications. • Aggressive rubbing and scrubbing, especially with soaps or cleansers. • Conditions such as hemorrhoids or skin tags. • Infections and parasites, including pinworms, scabies and yeast infections of the skin. • Skin problems such as psoriasis, eczema and seborrhea. You can treat anal itch (and prevent future cases) by: • Gently cleaning after every bowel movement with wet (unscented and dye-free) toilet paper or a wet washcloth. Then dry the anal area thoroughly but gently. Wipe gently or blot; never rub or scrub.

• Using only water to clean the anal area, never soap. • Dusting the anal area with non-medicated talcum powder between bowel movements. Or laying a clean square of cotton gauze against the anus to absorb excess moisture. • Not using medicated powders, perfumed sprays or deodorants on the anal area. • Resisting the urge to scratch. • Avoiding foods and beverages that cause anal irritation. • Applying zinc oxide or hydrocortisone ointment (1 percent) to help avoid scratching. • Wearing cotton underwear that is not too tight. • Eating yogurt to restore bacterial balance if you are taking oral antibiotics. If your anal itch persists after three to four weeks, call your doctor. You will need an examination to determine if you have any of the various skin infections or skin diseases that can cause anal itch.

Dr. Wallace: I’m 19, and Mario is 22, and we have been engaged for three months. But he is in jail. I feel really bad because I feel it’s my fault that he is there. We got into a really big argument last week because he accused me of flirting with his best friend. I absolutely have no interest in his friend and was just being kind to him. Mario was really angry and dropped me off at my house and then went home and got a gun. He is now accused of robbing a convenience store and will be sentenced next week because he pleaded guilty. If it weren’t for me and our big argument, he wouldn’t be in jail. I don’t know what will happen next week, but even if he gets a long sentence, I love him and I will wait for him. My problem is that my parents want me to get rid of him because this is his second encounter with the law. What can I do to convince my parents that Mario is not really a bad person and is worth waiting for? – Nameless, Santa Ana, Calif. Dear Nameless: You are definitely not responsible for Mario’s crime. He is 100 percent to blame. I doubt seriously that you can ever convince your parents that Mario is a good guy and is worth waiting for. I know you are going to do what you want to do, regardless of what I have to say, but I’ll say it anyway: Mario is a loser and waiting for him would be time wasted! Dr. Wallace: I have a part-time job and go to school full time, but I still maintain excellent grades. I don’t have a lot of free time because I’m working and studying most of the time. I have become really stressed out several times lately

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace because I can’t seem to juggle everything I need to do. My grandmother lives with us, and she keeps telling me that I don’t know what stress is because I’m too young to be stressed. But I do know what stress is and I don’t like to feel this way. I might be less stressed if I quit my job, but I really need the money. Please tell my grandmother that teens really do become stressed at times. – Megan, Denver, Colo.

Dear Megan’s Grandmother: No one is immune to stress, and some teens really do suffer from it. According to a fouryear study on stress, girls are more likely to experience lasting effects from stress than boys. The study was done by the University of Bielefeld in Germany and involved more than 1,500 teens between the ages of 12 and 17. It found that under excessive pressure, girls tended to keep their anxieties bottled up inside and boys were more likely to work off stress through extroverted behavior by becoming gruff or aggressive and participating in sports. Some of the main sources of stress for teens were: parents’ unreasonably high scholastic expectations, too little recognition from other teenagers, excessive job demands and too much leisure time – or not enough. You have a wonderful granddaughter who is an excellent student while working part time. That’s a noble feat. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@ galesburg.net.

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

CELEBRITY CIPHER

This week we have been looking at various uses for the trump suit. Here is one more, a technique that arises rarely, but is fun to execute when it does. South is in four spades. West leads the heart two, a known singleton. How should declarer plan the play? North’s two-heart cue-bid raise showed at least three-card spade support and a maximum initial pass. South, who expected the heart finesse to work and liked having a singleton, jumped to four spades. If the bidding had been perfect, North-South would have reached three no-trump, which has nine top tricks: five spades, two hearts (with the aid of the finesse), one diamond and one club. Here, declarer is faced with four losers: two hearts and two clubs. He has only those nine top tricks just listed. Is there any hope? Whenever declarer has a short suit and dummy’s trumps are strong, he should consider a dummy reversal. He takes ruffs in his own hand and uses dummy’s trumps to remove the opponents’. South takes the first trick, plays a diamond to dummy’s ace, ruffs a diamond in his hand, leads a trump to dummy and ruffs another diamond in hand. Then declarer overtakes his spade queen with dummy’s king, ruffs the last diamond with his spade ace, crosses to dummy with a club to the ace, draws West’s final trump and takes his second heart winner. Declarer’s 10 tricks are three spades in the dummy, the heart ace-queen, the diamond ace, the club ace and those three diamond ruffs in his hand.
