GENEVA

Police can soon issue traffic citations on local ordinances GENEVA – Geneva police officers will soon be able to issue traffic citations on local ordinances, allowing the city to receive a greater percentage of fines and costs. Aldermen acting as the committee of the whole Monday unanimously recommended approval of an amendment to the city code that adopts the Illinois Vehicle Code in its entirety for local enforcement purposes, officials said. This will allow Geneva officers to write traffic tickets for any section of the vehicle code under a local ordinance, as opposed to a limited number of specific violations as a local ordinance, as is currently the case, Geneva Police Chief Steve Mexin said. A state violation needs to be proven beyond a reasonable

doubt while a local ordinance is proven by a preponderance of evidence. Misdemeanors still have to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, the amendment states. “There would be the opportunity to charge them under state charge or a local charge, depending on the circumstances,” Mexin said. “The difference that a DUI charge would have, it would still be held to beyond a reasonable doubt burden of proof as opposed to the lesser charges like speeding.” Offenses would still go on the offending driver’s record, he said. Mexin said he did not have exact percentages of what the city would receive for various traffic citations, only that it would be more than what the city currently receives. “For example, for a ticket, the fining agency would get

about $24 from a $120 ticket, how much more a local charge would get, it’s a bigger percentage,” Mexin said. Several variables apply, such as court costs and court security – according to information he received from the circuit clerk – but not all would apply for every ticket, he said. The amendment would go into effect after the City Council takes final action. According to the amendment, anyone convicted of the equivalent of a petty offense – in which imprisonment is not part of the sentence – can be fined from $50 to $750. Drivers convicted of misdemeanors such as driving under the influence, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving and speeding more than 25 miles over the limit would be assessed fines as set by the vehicle code, according to the amendment.

By CHARLES MENCHACA cmenchaca@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – City staff on Monday said a downtown business still appears to have employee parking issues, something that was refuted by the company’s CEO. Robert Zimmers, CEO of ALE Solutions, 1 W. Illinois St., was at the city’s Planning and Development Committee meeting Monday to provide an update on parking enforcement and relocating ALE employees on the first floor of the Fox Island Square building. The St. Charles City Council on April 21 voted in favor of denying Zimmers’ appeal to keep his employees in the first-floor space. Zimmers was found to be in violation of the city’s Zoning Code as it pertains to the Downtown Overlay District, which emphasizes retail businesses on the first floor of businesses and pedestrian foot traffic. As of November 2013, an office certification from the city is required for business and professional office use on the ground floor

of buildings in the overlay district. Zimmers also agreed to enforce ALE employees parking away from the business so as to not take away spots for other downtown shoppers. The city on April 29 emailed Zimmers detailing some infractions that the city’s Building and Code Enforcement Division observed. Zimmers on Monday provided a written response to each infraction and insisted his employees are parking in permitted spaces. “Everybody is following [the proposed parking policy] in my company, I’m making sure of it,” Zimmers said. When city aldermen on the committee asked about his relocation efforts, Zimmers said he has been looking but hasn’t located anything yet. Zimmers needs a short-term, temporary leasing agreement, but so far has found leases with three- or four-year commitments. Zimmers will provide another update to city officials June 9.

Great expectations

ShoDeen unclear about Mill Race Inn’s future, but others have hopes

By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – A month and a half after Geneva developer ShoDeen bought the Mill Race Inn, in Geneva, a company official says ShoDeen does not yet know what it wants to put there. “We have just started trying to plan and have thinktank meetings,” said David Patzelt, president of ShoDeen Construction. “We don’t have anything yet; we have no solid idea yet. It’s nothing we can approach anybody at the city with.” The historic Geneva property, at 4 E. State St., Geneva, was purchased by 4 East State Street Holdings LLC March 1 for $550,000 from Plaza Bank, according to property records. The holding company was created through the Shodeen Family Foundation, according to the Illinois Secretary of State records. The Mill Race Inn’s restaurant closed in January 2011. It began as a blacksmith shop in 1842, but it eventually turned into a tea room in the 1930s. Its name was taken from the gristmill where water diverted from the river turned the mill’s wheels, called a “mill race.” After foreclosure, the prop-

“It’s time to love again…” I’ll be honest with you. I loved my home of forty-two years in DeKalb. After all, my husband Royce and I built our home together, raised a family, enjoyed our neighbors Marilyn Thompson and spent time with good friends. The reality is that after my husband died, maintaining a home and living alone wasn’t all that it was cracked up to be. Don’t get me wrong, I like my own company just fine but I also enjoy being with people. Oak Crest provides me with an outlet for my social interests and I have a lovely home, privacy and the security of knowing that all my needs will be met when the time comes. Someone said one day, “I thought you loved your home.” I just looked them in the eye and said, “I did love my home, but honey it’s time to love again.” Come for a visit and fall in love with all that Oak Crest has to offer. Marilyn Thompson, Resident since June 2011

Stanton would not say how much he offered, but that the bank probably thought it was a low offer.

“There were no surveys. It was in foreclosure – a pig in a poke. The building is in terrible condition – uninhabitable. It’s been flooded so many times,” Stanton said. “The $550,000 they paid is not that cheap of a price.” Stanton said he has no regrets that the property now be-

Eric Shodeen, president of ShoDeen Management Company, did not return a voicemail message seeking comment on the company’s plans for the property. But others speculated on what kind of development could go in that area on the Fox River. For Geneva Mayor Kevin Burns, the possibilities range from a hotel that would complement the Herrington Inn, which is at 15 S. River Lane, located just across the river from the Mill Race property, to a restaurant and retail site. “Or perhaps some housing opportunities such as condominiums,” Burns said. “I have every confidence that Shodeen Development Corporation will propose a plan that not only accentuates the beauty of the riverfront but adds to the electric and dynamic downtown business district.” Burns said ShoDeen has done other quality developments in Geneva, and he would expect no less in this one. “I welcome their creativity and their vision,” Burns said. “When they have their ducks in a row and get ready to raze the property, we will issue whatever permits necessary to clear the land and ready it for redevelopment.” Michael Simon, owner of The Little Traveler, 404 S. Third St., said the property would be well-suited for residential development. “More and more towns are having residential density in the downtown that Geneva does not have,” Simon said. “There are fewer opportunities for people to live downtown.” Simon said a combination of condominiums or some higher-density housing would be perfect for that area. Or, Simon said, creating a cousin to the Herrington across the river. “It would be a wonderful venue with a great location, with the right people in charge,” Simon said. Joseph Stanton, another downtown property owner and developer, said he doubted that a restaurant in that location would be financially sustainable. Any type of commercial development there would have

ROBERT L. JAY Born: Sept. 28, 1954 Died: May 7, 2014 RIDGWAY, Colo. – Robert L. Jay, 60, passed away peacefully at home in Ridgway, Colorado, surrounded by family on May 7, 2014, after a short but courageous battle with cancer. Robert was born to Robert B. and JoAnn Jay Sept. 28, 1954, in St. Charles, where he lived for 60 years before moving to Ridgway, Colo., in September of 2013. Bob was united in marriage to Cathee (nee Mendel) Jay in 1984. Together, they have two children, Benjy Jay of Chicago and Kaitlyn Jay of Logan, Utah. Bob spent his working years working alongside his parents in the family business, Wasco Nursery, until his retirement in 2012. Bob was a devoted father, car racing enthusiast and had a huge heart for animals. He is survived by his children Benjy and Kaitlyn, sister Barb Dunham and girlfriend Mary Fisher as well as his numerous “family members” from Wasco Nursery. Bob was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Cathee and his sister Nancy Epping. There will be no services at this time.

STC man pleads guilty to theft 30-year-old stole wheels from a vehicle at dealership By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com ST.

The dealership placed the value of the removed parts at about $5,000, court records show. Judge Susan Clancy Boles accepted Parazaider’s guilty plea Wednesday. He was sentenced to 24 months of probation and four days in the county jail, for which he has two days’ credit for time served, according to records. As conditions of his pro-

bation, records indicate Parazaider cannot leave the state without permission, must submit to drug tests and, among other requirements, must obey all federal and state laws and local ordinances. Parazaider was also ordered to pay $3,180 in fines and costs. Records show he has paid $1,800, leaving him with a balance of $1,380.

lation that is O-negative is small, 7 percent, which is why the need is great.” McElroy praised the North Aurora Mothers Club for hosting a blood drive – but he encouraged any group or company to call LifeSource and do the same. “They are just standing up and being accountable and giving back to their community,” McElroy said. “It’s a very cool thing they are doing. We tie it in with the tag of the strength, hope and courage of your mother.” Forpanek said she had not been a regular blood donor for years because of an aversion to needles. But that has changed now. “I’m really counting my blessings this Mother’s Day, and particularly for the LifeSource donors who regularly give blood,” Forpanek said. “Without their generosity, Carinne wouldn’t be here today. At the time she was diagnosed, I had not donated blood in years. ... But in light of all the times she and thousands of kids in treatment have been poked, the least I can do is put my big-girl pants on and give blood.”

NORTH AURORA – Mother’s Day was thrilling for Cassandra Forpanek because she had all three of her children with her – especially her youngest, who finished chemotherapy last month. “I have three healthy children, and I don’t take their health for granted anymore,” Forpanek, of North Aurora, said. “I know there are moms out there who have lost their children to cancer. And that just makes me that much more thankful.” Carinne Forpanek, now 7, was diagnosed in 2012 at age 4 and went through more than two years of chemotherapy. She has been in remission since February 2012, but her treatment continued until recently. Hannah Brazendale, another North Aurora girl, was diagnosed with the same type of leukemia at age 2 and completed her treatment in 2010. Both girls’ mothers are members of the North Aurora Mothers Club, which will honor the girls at its sixth annual Blood Drive 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 24 at Schneider Elementary School, 304 Banbury Road, North Aurora. Donors can schedule appointments by calling LifeSource at 877-543-3768 or online at www.lifesource.org. Walk-ins also are welcome, but appointments are preferred. Hannah’s family since has relocated to Australia, Forpanek said. The blood drive ties in with Chicago area blood supplier LifeSource’s campaign, which began on Mother’s Day. It honors mothers and caregivers of children by

encouraging those who are blood type O-negative to donate blood to help the area’s infants, newborns and premature babies. O-negative blood is known as the “universal” blood type because it can be transfused to any patient in need. O-negative blood donations were critical for Carinne and Hannah, who both benefited from receiving blood transfusions, plasma and platelets during their leukemia treatments, Carinne’s mother said. “Obviously, without blood donations, children like my daughter would not be able to survive their treatments,” Forpanek said. “They need these lifesaving blood products. Carinne’s blood, plasma and platelet levels were so low after her treatments. Having enough of this (O-negative) blood readily available was essential for her recovery.” LifeSource spokesman Andrew McElroy praised the mothers club for stepping up to sponsor a blood drive, particularly for O-negative. “We are encouraging everyone – whether they are O-negative or not – to donate blood because the supply of blood for all types is needed,” McElroy said. “O-negative is the universal type. We tie it in with Mother’s Day with a campaign: honor the strength, hope and courage of mothers and caregivers of children by giving three times a year.” McElroy said most donors give once a year, but if they increase that to two or three times in a year, the Chicago area blood supply will be in better shape. “O-negative is needed,” McElroy said. “It can be used for an unplanned trauma or to treat diseases like leukemia.

OPINIONS ANOTHER VIEW

‘Big data’ is coming THE WASHINGTON POST Americans should not fear a future of “big data,” in which vast amounts of information about people’s homes, habits and health, among other things, can be collected, stored, accessed and analyzed. But they should be cautious. That much is clear from a recent White House report on big data. Compiled by the administration over 90 days, the analysis articulates the prospects and the perils, and it suggests a few policies. But the path it recommends taking is still mostly unmapped. Secondhand data brokers get their hands on all sorts of information generated on phones, in Internet stores and in other contexts, creating sometimes-extensive profiles of individuals. Advertisers, lenders and employers can buy those profiles to find the right consumers for their product or the right employees to hire. Those same data sets can be used to discriminate against people. Government is in on the game, too. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services can root out improper payments by applying data analytics to massive stores of payment information – but doing such things can put personal health records under scrutiny. Previously, the difficulty of obtaining and sorting through mostly paper records made this sort of information-gathering impossible. Now it is commonplace, but official and unofficial privacy protections have not kept up. Some things – such as consumer credit scores – are subject to strict government regulation. Other players in big data have little or no oversight at all.

Among the things to be concerned about are those private data brokers and other companies that compile massive amounts of information on hundreds of millions of people from sources such as social media services, online ad clicks, purchase histories and public records. Some even assign individuals scores, analogous to traditional credit scores, without regulation. Those individuals probably don’t have any idea they are being scored, let alone about the data being used or any errors that they might contain. The report suggests some broad principles. People should know what’s being collected about them, where it’s stored, that it’s being stored securely and what it’s used for. Data brokers, for example, ought to offer information to those they profile on a unified website, like credit ratings agencies must do now. But, given the rapid advance of technology and increasingly numerous sources of information, the report says, policy may have to adjust the old approach to privacy protection – rather than putting the emphasis only on when information can be collected, government and industry might focus on when certain sorts of information can be used and by whom. Congress should take up the discussion. No matter the response, one bottom line must be consumer awareness. The world of big data is complex and confusing, and those using the information often don’t have an incentive to let their targets know. The government should insist consumers get the information they need to sort it out.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Important to understand To the Editor: Growing up, I remember one of my neighbors was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome. Before taking a class on the subject, I was unaware of the spectrum disorder known as autism and the amount of people it affects, like my old neighbor and his family. Through taking a class on autism this semester in college, I have heard lectures, volunteered at a care center and even organized a fundraiser, which have all helped me learn more about the ASD – autism spectrum disorder – community. I am particularly struck by learning about high-functioning autism because I think it is important to understand as I and others like me enter the work force. As more and more people are diagnosed with HFA every day, more and

more of these people will be entering the work force as well. These people may be my coworkers, and I think it is important for society to understand the characteristics so that we can best communicate with each other without misunderstanding on either side. HFA classification is up for debate. Similar to Asperger’s, HFA refers to people who are cognitively sound. It is widely accepted that the main difference between the two is a delay in the development of speech in early years of life, but there are other differences between the two, as well, including better visual/spatial skills in people with HFA and better independent functionality in people with Asperger’s. Nonetheless, the two are similar and defy the typical stereotypes that surround the ASD community.

This makes sense now, thinking back to my childhood neighbor. He is roughly my age and everyone just thought he was different before he was diagnosed with Asperger’s. He was not in special education classes at my school and was actually more advanced in some subjects than what was normal for his grade. This leads me to believe that there are many others out there like my neighbor, being reduced to stereotypes that label them incorrectly, and this must stop. It is clearly still misunderstood by our society, so it is up to us to be aware of the issue so many face and make it known to others when we can so that people like my old neighbor are not incorrectly labeled by society because of factors they cannot control.

Aurora Christian reboots after skipping 2013 season By JAY SCHWAB jschwab@shawmedia.com

A

urora Christian softball coach Rich Hazlett presided over a dramatic scene during the Eagles’ first practice of the season. “I lined them up on the line and said ‘Congratulations for winning state,’ ” Hazlett said. “I put medallions on their head and I walked throughout all the girls and I said ‘This is where I want to go.’ They were a little indifferent to it, and I said ‘This is where my heart is and I’m going to do everything possible to get us there, and I need you to do everything possible to be there if that’s what you want to do.’ ” Monday’s 17-1 loss at Wheaton Academy provided the latest dose of reality of how far the Eagles have to go to make that vision a reality. As the program reboots after a one-year hiatus in 2013, the Eagles are gratified that no longer how lopsided the defeats, they’re at least taking the field and working toward a better future. Senior catcher Keeley Slamans, of Sugar Grove, was among the Eagles who were exasperated to find out shortly before the 2013 season was to begin that Aurora Christian didn’t have enough players to field a team. Hazlett said there were “eight or nine” girls in the mix but a few more were needed. “The seniors from last year were kind of the ones on the edge,” Slamans said. “They would have made our numbers, so we were all shocked they ended up not playing for their senior year, which kind of made us all suffer.” Hazlett acknowledged the lost season was a “major setback” as he sought to continue changing the program’s culture in what would have been his second season on the job. Instability had plagued the program in the years before Hazlett took over. “When you have a constant turnover of head coaches in a program you tend to get a

Aurora Christian’s Jordan Pittman smiles after she tripled in the third inning of Monday’s game at Wheaton Academy. The Eagles took a one-year hiatus in 2013 before returning to the field this season. recreational type feel for the sport,” Hazlett said. “… It’s really hard to build a premier program when you can’t get consistency from year to year to year. Players want to be on something that is solid foundationally and has the potential to be great, and I think that’s the kind of culture I’m trying to set.” This spring has made it crystal clear that greatness won’t be attained easily or quickly. On Monday, the Eagles scored a run in the top of the first at Suburban Christian Conference foe Wheaton Academy before yielding 17 straight runs in another mercy-rule, five-inning defeat. That kind of humbling experience was typical of a season in which the Eagles have dropped games by scores such as 22-0 (three times), 21-0, 20-0 and 19-1. Even the one victory for the Eagles (1-15) came in bizarre fashion. Aurora Christian split a May 3 doubleheader with IMSA, winning the second game, 12-11, with only eight players available. “A lot of girls didn’t decide [they were going to come out this year] until the last minute so there were some girls who had already purchased tickets to the ballet, so they couldn’t get their money back, and

so they unfortunately had to leave,” Hazlett said. Of the 13 players Hazlett has to work with, only four are upperclassmen. The Eagles’ eight-player sophomore class seems to hold the key to the program’s future. While senior pitcher Jordan Pittman linked up last spring with a team of players from various schools that competed together in tournaments, most of the Eagles found other outlets for their time, leading to stunted skill development. “It’s definitely hard,” Slamans said. “Definitely not the way we wanted to come into this year. We wanted to come in more prepared for our senior year, but it was hard doing that with not having a season last year. For sure, hard.” Junior center fielder Alyssa Hernandez said she spent last spring preparing for basketball season. Hernandez had never played softball before picking up the sport her freshman year at Aurora Christian, and said “it’s definitely been a little bit of a struggle for me” to rediscover her rhythm. Still, Hernandez said she and the Eagles’ other leaders are determined not to give in to frustration. “The team totally battles in everything we do,” Hernandez

said. “Us as captains, we try to encourage them because we know that some of them haven’t even touched the ball before so we kind of just keep it uplifting over here.” Competing in the SCC against bigger schools such as St. Francis, Montini and Marian Central has proven daunting for the Eagles, who are relieved to dip down to Class 1A for the postseason later this month. During Monday’s game at Wheaton Academy, the scoreboard was slow to reflect the updated score as the Warriors’ lead continued to swell in the bottom of the third. There was no clamoring from the crowd to fix the score with the game already well out of hand, a scenario with which the Eagles have grown all too familiar. Yet Slamans and her teammates continued to compete with class. At one point, a fan tossed a retrieved foul ball over the fence toward her, and Slamans cheerily thanked him before resuming her squat in anticipation of the next pitch. “Even though it is really hard to stay positive during games, I think all of us upperclassmen would say it’s teaching us a lot with patience and teaching us a lot how to be strong leaders through adversity,” Slamans said.

Hannah Schlaman turned heads once more last week as she darted down the backstretch for the Batavia girls track and field team. The Bulldogs’ freshman won the Upstate Eight Conference 100-meter title in 12.84 seconds and finished second to Notre Dame-bound St. Charles East senior Jordan Shead in the 200, 25.81 to 25.95. Schlaman’s debut tour continues with Thursday’s Class 3A Metea Valley Sectional, and ideally will end at the state meet in Charleston in two weekends. Maybe then her teammates can catch their collective breaths. “I heard ... that we were going to have some good freshmen coming in, but I had no idea we were going to have runners like Hannah come in,” senior hurdler/sprinter Taylor Stieve said. “She’s incredible. She’s definitely a good addition to the team.” Schlaman has excelled from the start of indoors, when she placed fifth in an airtight 200 at the UEC indoor championships at Batavia’s fieldhouse.

Kaneland baseball loses early lead against Morris

Cougars drop opener in Beloit

KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE MORRIS – The first-place Kaneland baseball team saw its grip on first place in the Northern Illinois Big 12 East loosen Monday as the Knights fell to Morris, 6-3. The Knights got off to a quick start when Joe Panico drew a one-out walk in the top of the first inning before scoring two batters later when cleanup hitter Nick Stratman’s RBI single made the score, 1-0. An unearned run then gave the Knights a 2-0 jump on the Redskins. In the second inning, Morris cut into the Kaneland lead when pitcher Tim Smyk launched a solo home run deep over the fence in left field to make it a 2-1 ballgame. Morris racked up four straight twoout singles in the third inning to push across three runs that gave the Redskins a 4-2 advantage. In the top of the fifth, the Knights (14-10, 9-4) scored a run when Ty Carlson led off the inning with a single. Carlson moved to second on a sacrifice bunt before taking third on a passed ball and scoring on a throwing error. Heading into the bottom of the fifth, the game was halted when a lightning strike was spotted to the west. The delay lasted about 50 minutes. In the sixth, Morris added some insurance when it pushed across a pair of runs. With a 6-3 lead heading into the seventh, Smyk ran into some trouble, loading the bases before pitching out of the jam and stranding a trio of Knights to secure the complete-game victory.

Batavia-Streamwood to be resumed: Batavia’s game at Streamwood was stopped by lightning and will be resumed in the top of the seventh with the Bulldogs leading, 5-3, before the teams’ May 20 game in Batavia.

SOFTBALL Batavia 14, Streamwood 6: At Streamwood, Ryanne Rokos (3 for 5), Natalie Offutt (2 for 5, three RBIs) and Ashley McNamara (two-run double) helped spark Batavia to an Upstate Eight Conference River win.

Wheaton Academy 17, Aurora Christian 1 (5 inn.): At West Chicago, Wheaton Academy scored 17 unanswered runs after allowing a run in the top of the first. Senior shortstop Marissa Gagliano went 4 for 4 with a pair of doubles for the Warriors (13-8. 8-5 SCC Gold) while winning pitcher Michelle Ridderhoff went 3 for 4 with three RBIs. Losing pitcher Jordan Pittman went 2 for 2 with a triple and a walk for Aurora Christian (1-15 overall).

KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE BELOIT, Wis. – When the Cougars connected on backto-back doubles in the second inning, it had the look of another offensive day for the team with the best record in the Midwest League. Instead Beloit’s pitching staff buckled down and only allowed one other base hit the rest of the ballgame. The Snappers took Monday’s series-opening game against the Cougars by a score of 6-1 at Pohlman Field. The Cougars’ Jacob Rogers became the first runner in scoring position when he doubled with one out in the second inning. Will Remillard followed with a two-bagger of his own to put the Cougars on the board first, 1-0. Cougars righty Tyler Skulina was efficient through his first three innings, but couldn’t escape the fourth without damage from the Snappers’ offense. Ryan Huck

Next for the Cougars Kane County at Beloit, 6:30 p.m. today, AM-1280 tied up the game with an RBI single to plate Tyler Marincov. Sam Roberts brought home a pair with a two-out double to put Beloit ahead, 3-1. Jose Chavez continued with an RBI single, but was caught advancing. The Snappers’ starter Bobby Wahl worked only three innings, but the Cougars (26-11) hardly touched the relievers. Brent Powers faced the minimum through four innings. The only blemish was Yasiel Balaguert reaching on an error, but he was eventually picked off. Powers (2-1) picked up the win, while Skulina (1-1) suffered his first loss.

IN THE GROOVE MICKEY GOETZ ST. CHARLES NORTH, SR., IF What she did: Goetz unloaded on Geneva for a six-RBI afternoon on three hits Friday as the North Stars beat the Vikings for the second time in a threeday span.

Shaw Media file photo

Batavia’s Rachael Lovestrand pitches April 23 against Geneva.

at school, she said – Lovestrand has missed about a week and a half, but she said Saturday she is feeling better and hopes to return soon. Pitchers Nicole Peercy and Alyssa Klemm have taken on an increased workload in Lovestrand’s absence. “It was kind of hard not to play, but I like watching [the team] play,” Lovestrand said. “I was happy for the other kids that got an opportunity to play. It wasn’t that bad but I’m really happy to get into it again.”

Knights looking to ‘D’ up Kaneland’s mission leading up to regionals is clear – make progress on defense. The Knights have a relatively productive offense and a quality pitcher in junior

Angie Morrow but entered the week fighting to stay above .500 (13-11 overall) largely because of defensive shortcomings, coach Brian Willis said. “We’ve given up probably 10 unearned runs the last two days,” Willis said Saturday, referring to a loss Friday at Yorkville and a doubleheader split Saturday against Naperville North. “Naperville North hit the ball but they hit it right at us and we just booted it, and then they came up with a clutch hit.” The Knights have limited practice time this week with a busy slate of games, including conference matchups against Rochelle, Morris and DeKalb. “We need to really work on our defense,” Willis said. “Every time we lose, it seems

to be something defensive we can look back at.”

Focus, ladies With prom festivities – and the weeks of anticipation leading up to them – finally in the rearview mirror, St. Charles East coach Kelly Horan breathed a sigh of relief. Now Horan has less concern about where her players’ focus lies as the postseason fast approaches. “It was good to get this post-prom game out of the way to be really honest with you,” Horan said after a win at Geneva last week. “Done with it. Done with it. Everybody is back in school all day. We are good to go.”

WHAT WE LEARNED LAST WEEK ... It’s never too late to tinker with the batting order. Kaneland, for example, moved Lanie Callaghan up to No. 2 in the order and Lexi Roach down to the No. 5 hole in an effort to jump-start Roach, a Youngstown State-bound senior. Freshman Morgan Weber has settled into the leadoff spot for the Knights.

– Jay Schwab, jschwab@shawmedia.com

WHAT WE’LL LEARN IN THE WEEK AHEAD ...

COACH SLY SEZ ... Looking like we’re going to go to the wire with St. Charles East and St. Charles North for the UEC River, which sounds pretty perfect. All signs point toward a May 20 matchup between the teams at North determining the conference championship, just the way you’d have drawn it up headed into the season.

SARAH WILLMAN ROSARY, FR., P What she did: Willman had four hits and three RBIs in a lopsided win last week against IMSA and struck out 14 batters in a complete-game win against Guerin as the Royals prevailed, 6-1.

Yeah, both teams have bigger things in mind for the postseason, but nothing wrong whatsoever with collecting some local bragging rights along the way. • You can respond at kcchronicle.com/blogs/ sly.

Batavia freshman pitcher Rachael Lovestrand has been sidelined with a concussion recently but it’s been a challenging season for Lovestrand from the get-go. Lovestrand underwent months of physical therapy for a rotator cuff injury leading up to the season but said she still has experienced substantial soreness throughout the spring. At one time, Lovestrand expected to come back 100 percent, but eventually realized that wasn’t going to be the case, at least this season. Considering the discomfort – especially noticeable the days after she pitches – she’s been relieved that she has been able to handle a hefty workload as the Bulldogs’ top pitcher. “I didn’t think I could come back and almost pitch like I used to,” Lovestrand said. “I’m still not doing as good as I hoped I would, but I’m trying my best.” Lovestrand often plays second base during travel season with the Kane County XPlosion and said she actually prefers that, presenting a potentially logical long-term option if her rotator cuff injury does not fully heal. “I enjoy second base more, but I feel like I pitch so much I’d miss it if I actually stop pitching if it comes to that,” Lovestrand said. “I hope I don’t have to stop but if it comes to it I’ll be fine with it because I can still play the sport.” As for Lovestrand’s concussion – the result of a nonsoftball-related accident

Batavia sweeps Geneva, extends winning streak

in our may wedding edition

Jeff Krage for Shaw Media

Batavia’s Colby Green pitches to a Geneva batter during the Bulldogs’ 7-2 Game 1 victory Saturday. Green allowed five hits in six innings during his victory, with only one of those hits – a solo home run by Geneva catcher Nate Montgomery – leaving the infield. The Bulldogs finished the sweep over the Vikings with an 8-1 win in Game 2. Batavia extended its winning streak to 11 games to improve to 20-3-1 overall and 14-2-1 in the Upstate Eight Conference River Division. “Early on in the year we were kind of in some low-run scoring games,” Batavia senior Micah Coffey said. “It’s nice to come out and be able to back up our pitching and fielding the way we can with our bats.”

BY TERRY KOVEL KOVELS.COM Expensive woods like teak or mahogany, marble, stone and other materials used to make expensive furniture are often imitated by a painted surface. Faux finishes have been used since the days of ancient Egypt. The Greeks and Romans admired murals that were examples trompe l’oiel (fool-theeye) paintings. Life-size objects on tables, half-open doors, stairways and furnishings included in these paintings looked real. The tradition of faux finishes experienced a resurgence in the 19th century. A major Civil War monument with an interior of pink marble walls was restored a few years ago. It was discovered during the restoration that the monument’s walls were actually made of white marble painted with a faux finish that made the wall look like expensive pink marble. No doubt it was done to save money - and it was so well done it fooled the public. Inexpensive wood used to make furniture has been painted to resemble mahogany, bamboo, teak, birds-eye maple or just decorative graining. Tabletops were “improved” with a faux marble finish. Talented artists also painted tops with what looked like multicolored mosaic designs. Bamboo furniture was the latest rage in the early 1800s. Bamboo was hard to get in Europe and the United States, so Chinese-style furniture was made with wooden parts shaped like bamboo, then painted with trompe l’oiel graining. The wooden parts were stronger than real bamboo, so the faked parts often were an improvement. The tradition of painted furniture has continued, and collectors pay a premium for American “grained wood” country pieces made from 1850 until about 1880. But the finish must be original and in good condition. *** Q: Can you tell me if the old Franciscan earthenware pattern named Sierra Sand contains lead? A: Franciscan china was fired at high temperatures and is safe, but you can buy a leadtesting kit at a hardware store or online and test it yourself to see if the glaze contains lead. Leadfree glazes have been required adno=0275795a

on dinnerware sold in the United States since the 1980s. But glazes may contain some lead and still be considered “lead free,” according to U.S. Food and Drug Administration guidelines. If the pottery was fired at the correct temperature for the right amount of time, the lead fuses to the pottery and does not leach off. While your Franciscan dishes are safe, watch out for any pottery made in Mexico or China, handcrafted pottery, pieces that are highly decorated or have decorations painted over the glaze, and pottery with orange, red or yellow glaze. *** Q: An uncle in Ireland gave us an old clock. The inscription on the face of the clock is “Lepaute, Hger Du Roi.” It has Roman numerals for the hours and Arabic numerals for the minutes. Do you have any idea how old the clock is and what it might be worth? A: The Lepautes were master clockmakers in the 18th century. Jean-Andre Lepaute (1720-1789) began making clocks in Paris in about 1740. He specialized in large clocks for public installations and invented several improvements to clocks. He was a “Horloger du Roi,” a clockmaker to the king, by 1751. His broth-

er, Jean-Baptiste (1727-1802), joined him in business in 1759 and became head after JeanAndre retired in 1774. After JeanBaptiste died, his nephews ran the business for several years. Some clocks by Lepaute sell for several thousand dollars. Your clock would need to be seen by an expert to determine its value. A very famous 1765 mantel clock has auctioned for $111,462. *** Q: My father found a metal Coca-Cola serving tray in the attic of a railroad depot being torn

‘Belle’: A fractured family drama By STEPHANIE MERRY The Washington Post Fans of romantic period drama have something to tide them over until the next Jane Austen adaptation. Set in 1769, “Belle” announces its intentions straightaway with a heartfelt reunion between a man and his illegitimate daughter, followed by an exceedingly tearful separation. But even the melodrama can’t put a damper on the remarkable history behind this true story. Dido Elizabeth Belle was the daughter of British admiral Sir John Lindsay and an African slave, Maria Belle. After her mother died, and before her father was dispatched to who-knowswhere, Dido was placed in the care of her father’s uncle, William Murray. The first Earl of Mansfield, Murray also happened to be lord chief justice, tasked with ruling on cases involving England’s slave trade. Gugu Mbatha-Raw gives a superb performance as Dido, a very confused young woman who exists in a state of limbo. She is too high-born to mingle with commoners and too dark-skinned to eat dinner with her own family. She is raised with her cousin, Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon), who was abandoned by her father, and the pair grow up like sisters, although Dido isn’t afforded certain basic accommodations that Elizabeth is. And yet, Dido doesn’t question the order of things. She feels loved by her adoptive parents, a greataunt and great-uncle played by Tom Wilkinson and Emily Watson, and another aunt (Penelope Wilton), a spinster governess. She also has freedom that Elizabeth

Elizabeth has been disowned, left with no dowry, while the death of Dido’s father leaves her a rich woman, so she doesn’t have to marry if she doesn’t want to. But she has options in the form of two white men willing to buck the system to be with her. One is John Davinier (Sam Reid), a passionate aspiring lawyer and anti-slavery activist. The other, the son of a lord – a more suitable match, according to Dido’s adoptive father – is Oliver Ashford, played by James Norton. The story transcends the predictable outcome of this love triangle. That thread is supplemented by the recurring theme of liberty and restriction. Dido was freed from slavery and poverty but remains imprisoned by societal prejudice, which pops up in the ugliest ways, especially

during an altercation with Oliver’s brother, played by Tom Felton (the erstwhile Draco Malfoy from the “Harry Potter” movies, officially typecast). During one heartbreaking scene, Dido stares in the mirror rubbing desperately at her skin as if her race is merely a smudge that could be wiped away. Yet Elizabeth, who looks like she belongs among the lords and ladies, is penniless and also shackled by society. Her adoptive parents tell her she has to marry rich, and she laments that she’s become mere property, while Dido can do as she pleases. The most interesting story line involves Lord Mansfield’s work as he decides the Zong massacre case, in which a ship of slave traders threw 142 slaves overboard, claiming it was necessary because supplies were running low. As if that wasn’t horrify-

ing enough, the owners of the Zong then tried to get insurance money for the financial loss. (The trial was not a murder case but an issue of insurance fraud.) Whether Lord Mansfield will side with the insurance company or the slave traders becomes a point of contention in the family. The movie packs a lot in, and the quick pace of early scenes can feel like running on a treadmill, but “Belle” settles into a nice rhythm. It ends up having all the requisites of a period drama – a strings-heavy soundtrack, lavish costumes and passionate declarations of love – plus a good deal more.

• “Belle” received three out of four stars. The film is rated PG and contains thematic elements, some strong language and brief smoking images. It runs 104 minutes.

Registered sex offender covers gamut of offenses Dear Abby: As a licensed psychotherapist who has worked with both victims and perpetrators of sexual abuse over the past 25 years, I would like to respond to “Stunned in the City,” who found her co-worker’s name on a website for registered sex offenders. Registered sex offenders have been convicted and incarcerated for their crimes as well as serving a probationary period upon release. However, unlike other criminal offenses, they never finish “serving their time” – both in the areas of WHERE they can live and HOW they can live (employment). They continue to serve a sentence that can never be completed and are stigmatized for the rest of their lives. The reason for this is because of a “one-size-fits-all” approach to punishment, be it a one-time offender or a serial rapist. Most sexual abusers are either members of the family or a close family friend, and most are never reported. Only a small percentage of registered offenders pose a danger and should be under surveillance. The others should be allowed a second chance to continue with their

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips lives without undue harassment. If “Stunned” reports her co-worker to her employer, she will jeopardize his livelihood, which he needs to redeem his life. – Already Paid His Debt Dear A.P.H.D.: I received mail from mental health professionals, employers, parents and people who are on the sex offenders’ list regarding “Stunned’s” letter. All of them stated that the range of crimes that can add someone to the list is very broad. The list is no more than a STARTING point for people to begin their own research into public records before telling an employer or another person. Read on: Dear Abby: For more than 20 years I have employed a man who is a convicted sex offender. He paid his debt to society for having sex with a minor when he was in his 20s. It will haunt him for the rest of his life. The pictures you see online are recent because the authorities

require updated photos yearly. I empathize with him because I dated a 15-year-old when I was 19 – with her parents’ approval – but today it could mean jail time and a ruined life. There is no demarcation between being dumb and being truly criminal, so everyone is labeled the same. I suggest that we all stay aware of those labeled sexual predators, but approach the sexual offenders case-by-case. – Justice For All Dear Abby: Inclusion on the registry can be the result of something that would not pose a danger to anyone – urinating in public, or having sex with a younger girlfriend when you yourself are a minor. If you see a neighbor or co-worker on such a list, no one should jump to conclusions before doing more research about the actual offense. It may be nothing to worry about at all, or it might be something to react to. But you won’t know until you find out more than a simple listing. – Rebecca In San Diego • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Stress to teens that marijuana has its dangers Dear Doctor K: I have a teenager, and I’m worried he might try marijuana. I’d like to give my teen some facts about marijuana that will make him think twice about using it. What can I tell him? Dear Reader: You’ve asked an important and timely question. Marijuana use is on the rise, especially among teens. It’s easier to get than many other drugs – and cheaper. Also, teens think that it is safer than other illicit drugs. Two states have legalized recreational use of marijuana by adults. The message that it is safe to use is stronger than ever. That’s why it’s vital for parents to talk to their pre-teens and teens about marijuana. Certainly, it’s important to keep some perspective. There surely are more dangerous drugs, such as heroin or cocaine. And cigarettes and alcohol are just as dangerous, if not more so. But marijuana isn’t safe, and many people don’t know its dangers. The safety of marijuana is a controversial area. There are not many large, long-term, good studies. So, no doctor should

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff have a dogmatic and confident opinion about its safety. Here’s my best current judgment for what you need to make sure your son understands. Marijuana affects the parts of the brain that influence pleasure, sensation, concentration and memory. But that’s not all. Marijuana also: • Affects the developing brain. These effects may be permanent in people who start using it heavily during adolescence. There is reasonable evidence that regular, heavy use of marijuana in the teen years – when the brain still is developing – can lower IQ and alter memory and thinking. • Can lead to psychosis. Regular, heavy use of marijuana also can raise the lifelong risk of schizophrenia. It has been linked to anxiety, depression and other mental health problems. • Can damage the lungs. It’s never a good idea to inhale any kind of smoke into the lungs.

Marijuana smoke can lead to infections, asthma and other lung problems. • Makes the heart beat faster. It can cause the heart to beat extremely fast for a long period. When that happens, it can increase the risk of dangerous heart rhythms that can lead to sudden death – even in a teenager. • Can impair concentration and judgment. It is dangerous to smoke pot and then drive. Driving performance can be as impaired as when a person is intoxicated by alcohol. • Can be addictive in some people. Finally, make sure your teen understands that, in most states, having or using marijuana is illegal. It can lead to jail time. Talk to your son early and often. Make sure he knows the facts so he can make the best choices for his health and future.

Reward the superior student Dr. Wallace: I’m 17 and get good grades. I do all my homework and then some. I guess you can say that the pain is worth the gain. I’m hoping to be the valedictorian and earn a college scholarship. My friend is also in the National Honor Society and receives $25 for every semester A grade. So far, this semester she is earning four A’s and two B’s. She also gets an allowance. My parents don’t think students should be paid for good grades. I also don’t get an allowance, but my dad does give me money for special occasions. I consider my studies to be my job, and jobs should earn money. I’m not furious about not being rewarded for my grades, but since I’m going to get six A’s in a few weeks, $150 would come in handy. I hope you agree; and yes, my parents can afford to reward me. – Lisa, Long Beach, Calif. Dear Lisa: Most educators and those “in the know” frown on rewarding students with cash for good grades, but after giving your letter some thought, I’ve decided to be on your side. I agree that students should work hard to earn the highest grades possible, regardless of rewards for A’s and B’s, but after sleeping on my response, I agree that giving rewards can instill in certain students that extra drive to excellence. The reward can be agreed upon at the beginning of each semester and doesn’t necessarily have to be money. Six A’s in six classes is quite an accomplishment and a time for the family to celebrate and reward the superior student! Dr. Wallace: I’m 16 and have a disagreement with my mom. We live alone because my par-

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace ents are divorced and my older brother lives with my dad in Chicago. My mother is a nice person, but she has a problem when I tell her I am ill. I guess she doesn’t believe that I can ever get sick. I haven’t missed a day of school this year, but I should have. At least four or five times I had a really sore throat or a splitting headache and she made me go to school because “you’re really not hurting.” I even vomited after breakfast once, but she said it was probably because I ate too fast. I have two more years of high school left and I don’t want to win the perfect attendance award just because my mom can’t understand that I can be sick enough to stay at home. Please tell me how I can overcome this problem. – Madison, Peoria Dear Madison: You don’t belong at school when you are not feeling well, especially when you have a fever. It’s not fair to you or the other students if you happen to have a contagious illness. If mom makes this mistake again, go directly to the nurse’s office and explain the difficult position you’re in. When the nurse calls mom and informs her that you have a fever and she should come to school and take you home because you are too ill to remain in school, mom might just come to realize that it is possible for her daughter to be sick. If you don’t have a nurse at school, talk to your counselor. The result should be the same. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@ galesburg.net.

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

CELEBRITY CIPHER

John Buchan, a Scottish politician and novelist, whose most famous book was “The Thirty-Nine Steps,” said, “Every man at the bottom of his heart believes that he is a born detective.” It helps if a bridge player is a detective, uncovering clues from the bidding and play. But another word in that sentence is important in today’s deal. South is in three no-trump. West leads the spade queen. Given that the defenders can take only four tricks in spades, how should declarer plan to win the last nine? South starts with six top tricks: four hearts, one diamond and one club. He needs to deduce that if the club finesse is losing, the contract is hopeless. But if that finesse is winning, he can rake in nine tricks: four hearts, one diamond and four clubs. So, on the fourth spade, declarer must discard his diamond queen. Yes, this risks going several down if the club finesse fails, but pitching a club instead would leave South needing both minor-suit finesses to work. Then, after taking the fifth trick with his diamond ace, how should declarer continue? He must realize that he might need to take the club finesse three times. But he has only one dummy entry, in hearts, and he must stay in the dummy while repeating the club finesse. This requires first leading the bottom card in dummy’s clubs that can hold the trick when East has the club king. South must lead first the club nine. When that holds, he runs the club jack. Then he plays a club to his queen and claims. If declarer first leads dummy’s club jack, East can defeat the contract. Work out how.
