hile covering the Kane County Boys Track and Field Meet last week in Streamwood, I had the opportunity for a college student to shadow me for the afternoon. Amanda Pomplin, a St. Charles resident and stu-

dent at the College of DuPage, joined me on the field. She asked me what my favorite things to photograph were and answering was pretty easy – sports. Mainly because sports encompass everything that I love about photojournal-

ism. Action, passion, emotion and real moments are a part of every sport. The athletes don’t know that I’m there, or don’t really notice me anyway. This allows them to be themselves and not have a lot of camera awareness.

This became evident as Batavia’s Patrick Redmond (pictured second from right) exited the track, in agony, with the aid of fellow teammates after competing in the 3200-meter run.

ST. CHARLES

Fiebelkorn attorney seeks records Requests documents on former Animal Control interim director Sauceda By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – The attorney for a petting zoo owner accused of animal cruelty on Thursday asked a judge to issue subpoenas on the Kane County state’s attorney, as well as the Health and Human Resources departments, seeking all reports and investigation documents on Robert Sauceda, the county’s Stacy former Animal Fiebelkorn, Control interim owner of Mini director. Zoo Crew Sauceda resigned May 7 amid an ongoing personnel investigation. County officials did not provide specifics regarding his resignation. Animal Control is part of the Kane County Health Department. In March, Sauceda handled the removal of some 94 sick and starved animals from the Mini Zoo Crew, a petting zoo owned by Stacy Fiebelkorn of Elgin, most of which were kept on a rented farm in

Hampshire. Fiebelkorn was charged March 5 with cruelty to animals and a violation of an animal owner’s duty to provide food and care, both misdemeanors. In court papers, Fiebelkorn’s attorney Jamie Wombacher states Sauceda was placed on paid administrative leave on or about May 1 before resigning, and that he led and conducted the investigation into Fiebelkorn and the animals. “The details of the investigation into Mr. Sauceda’s suspension and subsequent resignation could prove vital to the instant matter as they could impact Mr. Sauceda’s credibility, bias his ability to conduct a proper investigation of the defendant or other issues,” Wombacher is asserting, according to court papers. The issue is set for a hearing on July 2. An email response from a health department spokesman said, “We will not be offering a comment on an on-going investigation, and we are referring all questions to the state’s attorney’s office.”

“The details of the investigation into Mr. Sauceda’s suspension and subsequent resignation could prove vital to the instant matter as they could impact Mr. Sauceda’s credibility, bias his ability to conduct a proper investigation of the defendant or other issues.” Jamie Wombacher Stacy Fiebelkorn’s attorney Wombacher did not return a message seeking comment. Kane County Health Department Executive Director Barb Jeffers and Human Resources Executive Director Sheila McCraven did not return voicemail messages seeking comment about possibly being subpoenaed. Sauceda, a South Elgin trustee, ran unsuccessfully

against incumbent Mike Kenyon, R-South Elgin, for a seat on the county board in the March 2012 primary. A political ally of Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen in his 2012 bid for the chairmanship, Sauceda was hired in late January 2013 as a temporary billing manager in the Kane County Animal Control Department for $52,000 a year. At Lauzen’s recommendation, the county board appointed Sauceda as the interim administrator in November at a salary of $65,000 a year, with the proviso that he would have 12 months to prove himself. Lauzen said at the time he was confident Sauceda would continue to show great performance and leadership. A day after Sauceda’s resignation, the county posted the animal control position on its website. The listed salary range is $65,000 to $70,000 for 40-plus hours a week. The application deadline is May 23. Lauzen said someone from Jeffers’ staff is filling in as animal control director until a new director is hired.

Episcopal Church hosts event for ministry trip ST. CHARLES – St. Charles Epsicopal Church will host a dinner, silent auction and live auction to raise money for its high school ministry group’s mission trips to Kentucky. The event takes place at 6 p.m. June 7, at the church, 994 N. Fifth Ave., St. Charles. For information, visit www.stcharlesepiscopal.org. A portion of the funds will benefit the church’s ministries for the homeless at Hesed House and the Sandwich Board, both in Aurora. Tickets to the event are $10 a person and will be on sale through June 1. Call the church for tickets at 630584-2596. Among items up for auction include sports memorabilia, meals, artwork, gift certificates and more.

AURORA

Mud Run participants ready for Memorial Day Event coordinator expects more than 1,000 people By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com AURORA – More than 1,000 people are expected to participate in the second annual Heroes Mud Run set for May 24 at Marmion Academy and Abbey Farms in Aurora. The event takes place to raise money for the Heart of a Marine Foundation and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. Last year’s inaugural Mud Run attracted 900 runners, said Patrick Kackert, event director and a 24-year veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps. He said he expects 1,500 to participate in this year’s event. “For a first-year race, we had a great turnout last year,” Kackert said. “Even though the event is new to the area, it continues to grow in popularity.” The event is held on Memorial Day weekend. Kackert said “we thought it would be fitting to have something on Memorial Day weekend to honor heroes past, present and future.” Last year’s event raised close to $10,000 for the Heart of a Marine Foundation and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. Kackert said he hopes this year’s event will raise even more money. “The more runners we get, the more money we can raise for our heroes,” he said. The Heroes Mud Run is a 5K event for ages 14 and older. It will be run over cross-country terrain. Participants will have to maneuver through more

gin at 9 a.m. To provide inspiration to participants, Jim Cornelison, who sings the national anthem at the beginning of Chicago Blackhawks home games, will sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at 8:30 a.m., followed by a military flyover by a World War II-era F4F Wildcat fighter plane. “We’re trying to time it so the flyover happens as soon as he is finished singing the verse ‘Home of the Brave,’ ” Kackert said.

Cadence Health, Kostelny concedes Tegeler Northwestern take next step for merger victory in judge primary ST. CHARLES

By BRENDA SCHORY

Would operate under NMHC name KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE editorial@kcchronicle.com Cadence Health and Northwestern Memorial HealthCare are a step closer to becoming one organization. On Thursday, the health systems announced in a joint news release that their governing boards approved the definitive agreement to combine the two groups. Mike Vivoda, president and CEO of Cadence Health, said in a written statement that the opportunity to partner with Northwestern will enhance the offerings of compassionate care in the western suburbs. “We believe this combination will create an integrated approach to patient care, augment a culture of service excellence and enhance and grow our clinical services to continue to position this system as the health care provider of choice,” Vivoda said. Dean M. Harrison, president and CEO of Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, said there are many complementary attributes between the two organizations, including simi-

lar “patients first” values. “Together, we are better positioned to provide care that is safer, more effective, and better coordinated that utilizes the latest breakthrough treatments and is accessible closer to where our patients live and work,” Harrison said. Pending regulatory approval, the combination would form an integrated academic health care delivery system spanning more than 60 sites across Chicago and its suburbs, the release states. The combined health system will operate under the Northwestern Medicine brand name. Harrison will remain CEO. Vivoda will serve as regional president and NMHC senior vice president. Cadence Health was formed in 2011 following a merger of Delnor Hospital in Geneva and Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield. Northwestern Memorial HealthCare is parent to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital in Lake Forest and Northwestern Medical Group.

bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Kane County Associate Judge Marmarie Kostelny conceded the race to her opponent, D.J. Tegeler, in the Republican primary for 16th Judicial Circuit, third sub-circuit. Kostelny lost to Tegel- D.J. Tegeler er, a Geneva defense lawyer, by seven votes, 6,220 to 6,213. After a discovery recount at two Marmarie precincts at Kostelny the Aurora Election Commission and 16 precincts at the Kane County Clerk, Kostelny attorney John Countryman said in a statement Thursday that the

differences were not enough to warrant seeking a full recount. In addition to other considerations, Kostelny asked Countryman not to proceed any further in order to avoid taxpayer expense in conducting a full recount of all the votes, according to the statement. A discovery recount does not change an election’s outcome unless it shows enough votes are affected and a candidate files court papers seeking a full recount by a May 19 deadline. “It was a hard-fought, clean race we ran,” Tegeler said. “I want to thank my supporters, and I look forward to serving the residents of Kane County.” Tegeler and Kostelny both were seeking a vacancy to be left by Judge Karen Simpson, who plans to retire Oct. 6.

Officials balance resident savings, city costs Committee chair will not move forward on contract with ‘zero sum’ savings By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com GENEVA – As Kane County officials work to implement the electric aggregation program, they want to ensure its administrative costs won’t cancel out residents’ savings. Ken Anderson, the county’s environmental and water resource division director, presented the Energy and Environmental Committee on Thursday with a chart detailing how much the county could collect with various

rates. The largest rate – a penny – would collect $1.8 million annually with a monthly cost of $10 to consumers. The smallest rate – 0.0001 – would generate $18,000 for the county and cost about 10 cents a month for residents. Committee Chairman Kurt Kojzarek, R-Gilberts, said he wouldn’t want to move forward on a contract with a supplier that would result in a “zero sum” savings for residents. Board member Mike Do-

nahue, R-Geneva, agreed that the fee should be kept as small as possible. But, he added, the county likely will need to collect more than $18,000 annually, especially considering rates will need to be renegotiated on an annual basis at minimum. “We want to make sure we’re covering all of our costs,” he said. Anderson noted the committee didn’t have to decide on a rate Thursday. That, he said, is negotiated in a bidding process.

p.m., followed by dinner at 6 p.m. The dinner will include a choice of three entrees – fish, chicken or beef – soup or salad, dinner rolls, vegetables, dessert and nonalcoholic drink. Cost is $17; alcoholic drinks can be bought separately.

The after-dinner speaker will be Capt. Francis X. Martin, USN, commander, Navy Region Midwest, who will speak about the “Readiness of the U.S. Navy to Meet Its Commitments.” For information, call Leonard Wass at 630-554-9386.

The county will lock in electric rates for a one-year, two-year or three-year period, Anderson said. But before the county selects a supplier, he said, it first must adopt an aggregation plan of operation and governance. Such a document has been drafted and must be the subject of two public hearings, Anderson said. He intends to invite the Illinois Power Agency and ComEd to those hearings in an effort to provide as much information on the electric aggregation pro-

gram as possible, he said. The committee was in support of holding a public hearing in Geneva on June 24, the date of the County Board’s next Committee of the Whole meeting. Anderson hopes to schedule the second public hearing somewhere in western Kane County. Committee members suggested he work with board members T.R. Smith, Drew Frasz, Melisa Taylor and Barb Wojnicki on a date, since they represent that area. adno=0275537

Advocates for less government involvement, introduces ‘Regulatory Sunset and Review Act’ ington, D.C. “I think it is overblown,” Hultgren said. “It is part of a 24-hour news cycle. There are things that Republicans and Democrats disagree on, but there are many things we work together on.” Hultgren also was asked if he supported raising the minimum wage. He answered that the bigger issue is reducing the unemployment rate. “I want people to have a good living wage, but more importantly, we still don’t have enough jobs,” Hultgren said. “If the minimum wage is too high, some of those jobs go away. How do we get this economy so it is truly growing?” Hultgren also said he doesn’t think comprehensive immigration reform will happen this year. “There is activity,” he said. “There is recognition that what we’ve got isn’t working well anymore.”

On workforce development “This is one of those recognitions that mean the most to me. I’m passionate about small businesses and entrepreneurship.”

BATAVIA – U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, said he believes excessive government regulations need to be lifted in order to grow the economy. “We need common-sense regulation,” Hultgren said during Thursday’s legislative affairs luncheon at Lincoln Inn Banquets, sponsored by the Batavia Chamber of Commerce and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “There is a lot of regulation that is crushing, especially for small businesses.” Hultgren has introduced the “Regulatory Sunset and Review Act” that would establish a process to review and, if needed, terminate regulations that have been in existence for years. “My bill recognizes there are regulations on the books that made sense 20 to 30 years

ago but don’t now,” Hultgren said. This week is National Small Business Week. Hultgren on Thursday was presented with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s “Spirit of Enterprise” award for his efforts in workforce development. “This is one of those rec ognitions that mean the most to me,” Hultgren said in Randy accepting the award. “I’m Hultgren passionate R-Winfield about small businesses and entrepreneurship.” Hultgren also answered questions from the audience.

OPINIONS LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Did you realize? To the Editor: Should any of us really be surprised that Gov. Pat Quinn is being dishonest with the citizens of Illinois? After all, Illinois’ two most recent governors have gone to jail for corruption. We have come to expect dishonesty and corruption from our elected officials. Gov. Quinn speaks of making the “temporary” individual income tax increase permanent. The problem is part of the increase is already permanent.

The old tax rate was 3 percent. The current tax rate is 5 percent. Without any legislative action, the tax rate becomes 3.75 percent. So, we really have a permanent tax increase no matter what. I bet you didn’t realize this. Did you? Why hasn’t the media reported this? More importantly, why hasn’t Gov. Quinn been truthful with the citizens of Illinois? Stephen W. DeFilippis Wayne

ANOTHER VIEW

Loosening mortgage standards isn’t a crazy idea BLOOMBERG NEWS After all of the suffering that bad mortgages have cast upon the world, news that the United States is loosening lending standards – as outlined this week by Mel Watt, the newly installed overseer of mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – might give reasonable people a queasy sense of deja vu. Actually, what Watt is proposing makes sense. Like it or not, government officials such as Watt are going to play the leading role in U.S. mortgage lending for the foreseeable future. Legislation to reform housing finance, proposed by South Dakota Democrat Tim Johnson and Idaho Republican

Mike Crapo, probably won’t come to a vote this year. The so-called private-label market, in which mortgages are packaged for sale directly to investors, is pretty much dead. That leaves entities such as Fannie and Freddie, which buy mortgages from lenders and pool them into government-guaranteed securities. If you recently got a loan of less than $417,000 ($625,500 in high-priced cities such as New York and Los Angeles), chances are you have Fannie and Freddie to thank. Problem is, mortgage lenders have tightened their standards even beyond what Fannie and Freddie’s now-stringent rules require. As a result, good borrowers

can’t get loans. Anyone who has recently endured the approval process can attest to lenders’ exhaustive, and exhausting, attention to detail. Together with rising interest rates, this caution has reduced the volume of mortgage lending to its slowest pace since 1997. Why the sudden conservatism? One driver is the fear that Fannie and Freddie will deem the mortgages defective and make the lenders buy them back. Such “put-backs” of loans made during the boom – many of which were egregiously defective – have already cost banks billions of dollars. Now the lenders are playing it safe. They want to stay well within Fannie and Freddie’s rules, which they

say are vague on what can and can’t be put back. Watt’s plan is simple. Make the rules clearer and provide assurances to banks – for example, that they won’t face put-backs if the loans perform reasonably well or pass a quality review. The overseer of Fannie and Freddie, known as the Federal Housing Finance Agency, will also cease efforts to shrink their operations, at least until the private market is ready to pick up the slack. It’s unclear how much the changes will boost mortgage lending or the housing market, but there’s no need to worry that they’ll bring back the crazy lending of the boom years. A return to that era is nowhere in sight,

and delinquency rates on loans guaranteed since the crisis have been close to zero. There’s also very little risk to taxpayers. Over the past few years, Fannie has roughly doubled the fee it charges to insure mortgage loans. Combined with low default rates, this has been a big driver of the ample profits Fannie has been delivering to the U.S. Treasury. To be clear, the temporary fix known as the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac conservatorship is far from ideal. Reforming the U.S. mortgage market is unfinished post-crash business. While the U.S. finds its way to a long-term answer, tweaks like Watt’s will have to do.

KANE COUNTY

Lauzen talks tolls at state of counties event Longmeadow Parkway bridge could generate between $50 million and $70 million By ANDREA AZZO aazzo@shawmedia.com SANDWICH – Drivers who plan to cross the proposed Longmeadow Parkway bridge over the Fox River in northern Kane County can expect to pay tolls, but Kane County officials say that will be temporary. Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen said the toll bridge will be placed in two or three years and will generate between $50 million and $70 million of the project’s estimated $125 million cost. Lauzen gave an update of the construction plan Thursday to attendees of Metro West Council of Government’s State of the Counties Luncheon at Best Western Timber Creek Inn and Suites, 2200 Drew Ave., Sandwich. The council includes mem-

bers from Kane, Kendall and DeKalb counties. All three respective county board chairmen spoke at the event. Lauzen cited Winnebago County’s success in keeping a temporary tollway until last April, saying the intention is to do the same thing with the Longmeadow Parkway toll bridge. “I don’t think I’ll have the time span in my life to fulfill that,” Lauzen said. “Without that [money], we could not have a roadway.” Chairmen gave brief presentations of the current conditions in their counties. Lauzen’s presentation included a briefing on the challenges government officials face in the state, which include high property taxes. “Nobody knows better than the people in this room what a challenging context it is to serve in the state of Illi-

“I don’t think I’ll have the time span in my life to fulfill that. Without that [money], we could not have a roadway.” Chris Lauzen Kane County Board Chairman on using temporary tollways nois,” Lauzen said. Some residents have left Illinois to move to other states, such as Indiana. Lauzen took pride in Kane County’s efforts of freezing the property tax levy for three years in a row. Property tax levies are calculated when multiplying the assessed value and the rate. Kane County officials are working on a budget to see if they can freeze the property

tax levy for a fourth or fifth year. In order to help do that, Lauzen talked about the county’s five-year horizon plan for finances, operating funds and capital planning. The horizon plan looks at long-term financing planning and how to prepare for another possible economic downturn without using tax bills, said Terry Hunt, Kane County auditor. Lauzen said the biggest issue the county is currently facing is to continue to have

good relationships among other county officials. He mentioned an incident two years ago when two elected officials sued each other, costing $350,000. Lauzen told the crowd about a business plan drafted by Alan Mulally, chief executive officer of Ford Motor Company. “Stop fighting, tell the truth, agree on one set of numbers and be accountable for your actions,” Lauzen said. “That’s what we’re trying to do in Kane County.”

rian Willis’ 11 previous chemotherapy treatments fatigued him more during subsequent days than at any other time. He hopes the pattern holds a few hours after his 12th and final scheduled procedure. Willis, the Kaneland softball coach, not only wants to attend Monday’s baseball fundraiser honoring him and two other cancer survivors at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark. He seeks to show how much the community support has enlivened him. “I was very surprised and honored to be asked, going through what I’m going through,” Willis said. “I’m not going to take anything for granted, and go out there and appreciate everything that’s offered to me and go from there. It’s a nice gesture to me, and I’m honored.” Kaneland and Batavia’s “Pack the Park” senior night event also will benefit Kaneland baseball parent Phil Kassinger and Kaneland Harter Middle School seventh-grader Drew Hahn, the son of Geneva baseball coach Matt Hahn. Drew Hahn, 12, has found no shortage of resolve ever since his March diagnosis with anaplastic large-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a rare form of cancer. Drew Hahn “I’ve kind of just went with the flow so far,” Drew said. “I mean, it’s all been pretty stressful, but I’ve just kind of went with it and dealt with things that came when they came and just took it step by step.” Kaneland and Batavia

Kaneland softball coach Brian Willis (second from left) said he is “very honored” to be part of Monday’s Kaneland-Batavia baseball fundraiser benefiting him and two others fighting cancer. will play a dual senior night game at 7 p.m. Monday after the sophomores meet at 4:30. Admission is $5 for adults and students, and free admission for all children younger than age 6. All proceeds will benefit the Hahn, Kassinger and Willis families. Both Kaneland and Batavia participate in charitable or service activities each season and traditionally have played at the home of the Kane County Cougars in past springs. Deciding upon a 2014 benefactor proved a much easier process this time. The Kaneland community already was backing the fall and winter diagnoses of Willis (colon cancer) and Kassinger (stage four lung cancer), whose son, Kevin, is a Knights

senior. Once news of Hahn’s cancer circulated, Kaneland coach Brian Aversa knew he had to react. “As soon as I heard that, I was like, ‘Man, this is a great opportunity for us to reach across the lines of baseball,’ ” said Aversa, a Geneva product. “We teach our kids every year about giving back to the community, and this was something we felt like was taking the extra step.” Aversa contacted Batavia counterpart Matt Holm soon after. The pair approached Hahn after Geneva’s April 19 game at Kaneland. When Hahn saw Holm saunter up early in the game, he figured he was there to scout the Vikings for the teams’ Upstate Eight Confer-

ence River Division series. When Holm and Aversa presented a letter outlining the fundraiser, Hahn nearly was brought to tears. The coaches of the Vikings’ onetime Western Sun Conference rivals both have echoed the triviality of such things in the face of trying times. “I’ve said it before. I can’t imagine with as much time and everything as I spend out here with these [players] and everything, and then all of a sudden, something happens to somebody in my family,” Holm said. “And it happens, it happens to everybody. People get sick and stuff. But the amount of time and effort that goes into that, you really feel for Matt and his family, just because you understand the

coaching and that kind of stuff. “As much as the rivalry and everything goes, that doesn’t matter. Matt and I, we’re friends, and that’s what matters. I would like to think that any of the coaches would do anything like that for any of the coaches. It’s like a fraternity. We’re very pleased to do it.” Drew, who plays football and basketball at Harter, admits he was “almost speechless” upon first hearing of the fundraiser. His family – including mother Cyndi and younger brother Ryan – knows he’s usually anything but stoic. Drew remains upbeat and well-spoken while managing a daunting schedule that includes weeklong hospital stays at Chicago’s Rush University Medical Center for chemotherapy before taking two weeks away from treatment. “You try not to be biased about your own kids, but he’s just handled this unbelievably maturely. Nothing negative comes out of his mouth. He takes everything in stride,” Matt Hahn said. “He takes all the treatments in stride. The monotony and the boredom of being downtown laying in a hospital bed for a week, takes

UEC BOYS TRACK AND FIELD MEET

By IAN MATTHEWS editorial@kcchronicle.com

Kevin Harrington St. Charles North boys track and field coach seconds to win the 100-meter dash. Roels, who also competed in the 400 and the 200, recently returned from a hamstring injury and is finally returning to form. “I’m really happy with how things went. The 100, that was a PR right there for me by a tenth of a second,” Roels said. “I tore my hamstring the first week of outdoors, so I wasn’t really hitting the times I was hitting last year. That’s the best that I’ve run so I’m feeling great.” Meanwhile, Batavia’s good fortune was spread out amongst its athletes, with

wins from Ryan Wieties in the 800, Peyton Piron in the 300 hurdles and Chris Orlow in the 1,600. Wieties beat Neuqua Valley’s Ty Moss at the line, nudging ahead at the last second before falling face-first onto the track, scratching and cutting his face. “It was kind of crazy, Moss made a move and I was kind of hanging and I saw a little bit of a slow up with about 100 meters left so I relied on myself and put in that effort,” Wieties said. “I had something left there in the end. I just wanted to win. We had to get points tonight and coach

told me to win the race.” Batavia coach Dennis Piron was happy about his team’s performance along with his son, who won the 300 hurdles with a personal-best 39.87. “I love coaching, but coaching your kid is a whole different deal,” Piron said. “I’m just proud of him. I know how hard he trains and how much he cares. He’s a good teammate and I’m just happy he put a really good race together.” St. Charles North was right behind both Batavia and Geneva and got off to a

roaring start in the meet, taking the 4x800 in 8:02.41. Jack Feeney, Steve Lewandowski, Chris Suda and Nathan Klair spearheaded the relay that bested their preliminary qualifying time by almost 15 seconds. “The best thing of the night for us was our 4x8 that ran an 8:02 and that sets us up pretty well for sectionals,” North coach Kevin Harrington said. “Everyone is ready to run faster. That was the one thing we needed out here was to make sure we knew how to do it and we showed we could do it.”

Willis praises school community for support • FUNDRAISER Continued from page 18 it in stride. I can’t be negative, because he’s not. So I’m almost taking my cues from him because of all his optimism. “He told my wife the other day, ‘Maybe because I have to go through this, somebody else will be cured of this.’ And it’s like, ‘What 12-yearold thinks like that?’ I’m just very proud of him. It’s awful to watch him go through this, but I’m very proud of the way he’s handling it. He has been very mature through the

whole thing.” The Kaneland softball program hosted a cancer awareness day as part of a game last week. Willis again praised the school community for its support, and has been especially thankful for assistants Mike Kuefler and Kelly Ritchey, who have alleviated the stress from what Willis estimates are his first handful of missed practices in 20 years of coaching. Drew echoes that sentiment for the community and his teachers as he works to finish the school year on time. His dad said the family is

“cautiously optimistic” about his prognosis with chemotherapy scheduled through the coming weeks. Drew slowly is regaining his appetite, which should only serve notice to the anonymous meal-droppers who have descended on the family home. Further testing awaits each party after chemotherapy ends, but it’s all in the name of pointing the arrow toward lifelong health. “Nothing I can do about it,” Willis said. “Just fight the battle and try to win the battle.” And realize no one faces the bout alone.

ELGIN – The Upstate Eight Conference boys track and field meet, while important, is more of a stepping stone for next week’s IHSA sectionals. Most of the UEC teams will be right back at Memorial Field for the Elgin sectional, so the individual battles Thursday night might be a precursor of things to come next week. Despite the relative light-hearted approach, the Tri-Cities schools still had a great meet, with individuals posting near-record times to help set up what should be a great sectional meet next week. Rivals Batavia and Geneva led the way in the River Division, distancing themselves from the rest of the field early in the meet. Final results were not available at press time. The Vikings got off to a roaring start, taking third in the 4x800-meter relay before Tim Roels posted 10.91

Chmelik, Saints finish strong at sectional

Area state qualifiers

By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com AURORA – Allison Chmelik grinned and gritted her teeth Thursday night as the IHSA Class 3A Metea Valley Sectional concluded. While celebrating with her St. Charles East girls track and field teammates provided warmth on a chilly night, so, too, did the reason behind the Saints’ shouting. Chmelik will be among the busiest East athletes next weekend when the program descends on the state meet at Eastern Illinois’ O’Brien Stadium in Charleston. Her qualifying efforts in the triple jump and as part of the 4x100-, 4x200- and 4x400-meter relays helped the Saints to a second-place finish among teams, 13 points behind West Aurora. “Doing four events is sometimes a lot, but it’s a lot of fun and I was feeling good,” Chmelik said. Chmelik collaborated with her twin sister, Elizabeth, as well as Casey McNichols and anchor Jordan Shead to close the night with a winning run of 3:57.85 in the 4x400. The Saints return three members of last year’s state champion quartet and qualified each of the four relays overall. A few weeks ago, the team was scuffling to get a full lineup back from illness and injury. These days, the program is all but firing at full strength. Right on time. “Yeah, I’d say everyone’s coming back strong,” said Shead, a Notre Dame-bound senior. “So we definitely were ready to go today. … The team atmosphere, we were just all really excited to be here and really ready to go.” Some freshmen enjoyed success on par with their veteran counterparts. Geneva’s Kristin Higgins won the high jump by clearing a personal best 5 feet, 3 inches. Batavia’s Hannah Schlaman earned a sprint sweep, winning the 100 (13.83) and 200 (25.82) “Honestly, this is just an

St. Charles East’s Allison Chmelik runs anchor during the 4x200-meter relay race Thursday at the Metea Valley Girls Track and Field Sectional at Metea Valley High School in Aurora.

amazing win,” Schlaman said. “I’m proud of myself. Proud of my teammates, and I’m very lucky for today.” St. Charles North senior Ashley England qualified for the 3,200 for the second successive season after taking up track as a junior. She lay resting on the Metea Valley artificial turf shortly after crossing the finish line in a runner-up 11:08.54, and later said she would rather recover in cooler temperatures than the traditional mugginess of Charleston in late May. “I like running in this weather, personally. I like the rain. I like cross country more than I like track, truthfully, so those elements of nature, I guess, they really

don’t bother me,” England said. “So I like running in that better than heat, definitely.” A cross country and track recruit at Illinois State, England is anticipating another enjoyable state trip with a North contingent that includes jumper Hannah Schilb and pole vault champion Jessica Grill. The roster was streamlined for the county meet and state series, and here comes one last round. “We’re really close with everyone, but the varsity team just over these past three weeks, we’ve gotten really close because our team has shrunk from a bunch of kids down to 20,” England said. “So it gave us a lot of

time to be together.” Running it back – as in repeating a state berth – was a theme in several other places, including for Batavia’s 4x800 relay. Jenny Muehlbauer, Dakota Roman and Alicia Grant helped the quartet downstate in 2013. On Thursday, Hannah Ullberg stepped in for Miranda Rea (health issue), but the Bulldogs still arrived at the same destination. “Hannah did amazing filling the spot,” Grant said. Geneva, which will join Batavia and East in the event, fulfilled one of its objectives by returning the 4x800 downstate after a recent hiatus. McKenzie Altmayer, Kathryn Adelman, Mary Grace Neville and Brooke Nusser comprised the Geneva quartet. “It’s been fun to kind of get that focus back on the 4x800,” Vikings coach Peter Raak said. “It was a goal this year to get them downstate with some individuals, too.”

WHAT TO WATCH

Knights battle back to upset Barbs

Stanley Cup playoffs Los Angeles at Anaheim, 8 p.m., NBCSN

By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com

Brian Willis Kaneland softball coach took a huge hit. DeKalb came in tied with Yorkville with two league losses. The Foxes were scheduled to play struggling Rochelle Thursday afternoon. Kaneland’s game-winning runs in the eighth were courtesy of a Paige Kuefler RBI double and a Cohrs inside-thepark homer. “Just a never quit attitude. They stayed focused the whole

time, they never quit,” Kaneland coach Brian Willis said. “They showed a lot of character in today’s win. So I think we grew as a team today.” DeKalb (20-6, 7-3 NI Big 12 East) got on the board in the first inning, when leadoff hitter Abby Taylor, after walking to start the game, was bunted to second by Erin Karasewski and scored on an RBI single by Morgan Newport. That was all DeKalb would score against Knights pitcher Angie Morrow. The Barbs left 10 runners on base, including two in each of the fifth, sixth and seventh innings. “Sometimes, it’s just not your day. You’ve got to understand, that’s just how this game is. And it’s hard to explain that to 15-, 16-, 17-year old kids,” DeKalb coach Jeff

Davis said. “It is what it is. [Kaneland] played well today. I thought both teams played well, and they came out on top. We’ve been hitting the ball extremely well. We had an off day today, we start over.” Kowalski was dominant for the first six innings, walking two batters and striking out six. With Lanie Callaghan on third with two outs in the fourth, Kowalski was saved by her shortstop Taylor, who made a nice diving catch on a ball Lexi Roach hit into short left field. “I knew I had to get it because there was a runner on third. I’ve had those before, and I haven’t gone as hard as I wanted to,” Taylor said. “I knew I had to go hard and make the diving catch.”

8PREP ROUNDUP

East boys volleyball falls in record-setting match KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles East boys volleyball team was part of a record-setting match, albeit in a loss, as the Saints fell, 25-23, 41-39, to Metea Valley in Thursday’s Upstate Eight Conference crossover match. The Set 2 marathon set an IHSA boys volleyball record, according to IHSA.org, which lists 38 points scored by Hinsdale Central against Addison Trail in 2008 as the previous high point total for a team in one set. “It was cool because I even told [the players], out of all my years of high school and college volleyball, me playing and then coaching, and I played longer than I’ve coached so far, this has been the coolest game I’ve ever been a part of,” East coach Kate McCullagh said. “I’ve never seen a game go that far, ever. It was kind of a new experience for everyone.” McCullagh said the caliber of play was impressive on both ends but the twistfilled game ended somewhat anticlimactically.

“It ended on an iffy in or out call so the immediate reaction … from everyone, including myself, our blood was pumping so quickly, we were all ready to rage and be frustrated, but then we kind of regrouped before we shook hands, looked each other in the eye and I think that kind of calmed us, to realize how cool it was to be part of a game that went so high and have so many young men battling [on both teams] – it was a really cool experience,” McCullagh said. Luke Spicer had 23 kills, Tom Wolfsmith had nine kills and Thomas DeBruyne added 30 assists for East (2013).

St. Francis 2, Wheaton Academy 0 (25-23, 25-19): At West Chicago, Robert Smith had 24 assists, Jeff Jendryk had eight kills and three blocks and Greg Churney added eight kills for St. Francis (275).

Jacob Bachio went 1 for 2 with a run scored while losing pitcher Anthony Holubecki (4-2) struck out six and allowed five hits in six innings.

SOFTBALL Geneva 4, Streamwood 3: At Streamwood, Annika Radabaugh and Anna Geary both homered in support of winning pitcher Rachel Fanella for Geneva (16-11, 9-8 UEC River).

Burlington Central 15, North Boone 0 (5 inn.): At Burlington, Alyssa Mish went 2 for 2 with two RBIs and Shelby Young went 2 for 3 with a triple as Central (17-7, 10-2 Big Northern East) wrapped up the conference season in second place. Courtni Neubauer and Ashley Ratliff combined on a one-hitter.

Chicago Christian 6, Rosary 4: At Aurora, Sarah Willman had three hits and an RBI and Sam Phelps went 2 for 4 with two RBIs but Rosary fell short in the Suburban Christian Conference contest.

GIRLS SOCCER Geneva 4, Glenbard South 0: At Glen Ellyn, Geneva capped its regular season with a 135-2 record as Mary Landry scored twice and Michaela Loebel and Courtney Lardas added goals. Sam Hauser and Emma Harkleroad combined on a shutout in net.

DeKALB – Katie Kowalski had shut Kaneland down all game. The DeKalb senior pitcher had allowed only two hits during the first six innings of the contest as her team held a one-run lead heading into the top of the seventh at DeKalb High School. The Knights’ Meg Cohrs walked to lead off the frame, and it was all downhill from there. Cohrs would end up scoring to tie the game, and Kaneland (15-11, 6-3) added three in the top of the eighth to come away with a 4-1 win. The Barbs came into the game looking to win at least a share of the Northern Illinois Big 12 East title, and those hopes

“Just a never quit attitude. They stayed focused the whole time, they never quit.”

The winner gets the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks in the Western Conference final. The Hawks would play host to the Kings or travel to the Ducks for Game 1 on Sunday.

8SPORTS SHORTS Broken finger sidelines Vikings’ Derr GENEVA – Geneva sophomore baseball standout Nick Derr has a broken finger in his right, throwing hand and is “most likely done for the remainder of the season,” Vikings coach Matt Hahn wrote in an email Thursday. Nick Derr Derr, the Vikings’ shortstop and No. 3 hitter, suffered the injury after fielding a grounder in the sixth inning of Tuesday’s 5-4, 8-inning loss at Batavia. The Florida State recruit left the game in the middle of the inning. Hahn called the finger “pretty swollen” after Tuesday’s game. The Vikings absorbed two injuries in their pitching staff earlier

BEARS this season. “We’ll go with what we have, and we’ll compete,” said Hahn, whose team faces host Lake Park in a Class 4A regional semifinal May 29.

Sutton signs; draft class under contract By KEVIN FISHBAIN kfishbain@chicagofootball.com It took only five days, and the entire Bears draft class is under contract, 24 hours before the beginning of rookie minicamp. Third-round defensive tackle Will Sutton agreed to terms on his rookie contract, the team announced Thursday. Cliff Stein, the team’s vice president of football administration, got the Bears’ class signed before any other team – even before any other team signed its first-round pick.

Sutton is a quick, penetrating three-technique who has his weight back down to 290 pounds after seeing his production take a dip as a senior after a weight gain. He is a two-time Pac12 Defensive Player of the Year. Sutton was the 82nd overall pick of the draft. Last year’s 82nd pick, John Jenkins, signed a four-year contract with the Saints worth $2.79 million with a rookie-year cap hit of $546,890, according to Spotrac. His signing bonus was $567,560.

‘OVERLEAF’ By Virginia Kammerer, a St. Charles resident The horizon blooms, As we impatiently lose The essence of the day. Eager for life to begin, Or perhaps, wade in the pool Of what might have been.

Handmaidens, slaves To our worn cloaks of habits; Our book or life tablets. Once written, cannot be erased, On page or on the face. A lesson to be learned: Live life on one’s own terms – Just get on with it, Until the raven delivers up The urn.

Mazda markets winner in wagon-SUV-crossover field Mazda’s CX-5 is a real sleeper in the automotive market. It is practical, it is economical and, in an age of automotive complexity, it is sensible. To wit: in regard to radio (AM-FM-SiriusXM satellite), there are two dials, one to control volume and the other station location. Turning a knob can and usually is easier and quicker than punching a “modern” touch-screen to move from one station or sound format to another. Or repeatedly touching (sometimes pounding) that screen to increase or lower the volume. The interior is likable with soft composites, instead of hard plastics, used for the upper half of the dashboard. In the past, auto manufacturers went the cheap route with the plastics. That has changed and Mazda has followed suit. Hard composites are relegated to lower portions of the dashboard. The CX-5 in for a week of test driving was a 2015 Grand Touring model, which included the power and comfort features expected in a loaded two-row, five-passenger, all-wheel-drive vehicle. An example of its practical nature is the split and fold rear seats. A latch undoes them to fold flat from an upright position. This is little different than what competitors offer, but with a caveat. What differs is the way the seats fold. They actually fold flat. Not all competitors can make that claim. This allows the CX-5 to create a perfectly flat cargo surface. Rear seats that fold flat can cost more in the manufacturing process, but they can be an attractive, if minor, sales talking point in this market. And in what market does the CX-5 participate? The vehicle can be described as a crossover, sport utility or wagon. As a wagon, the liftgate opens to an ample load floor while providing a ride for a family of five. Ground clearance of 8.5 inches is average or even above the

A 184-horsepower, 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine is mated to a six-speed shiftable automatic transmission in the Grand Touring model of the 2015 Mazda CX-5.

BEHIND THE WHEEL Jerry Kuyper norm for a sport utility vehicle. The raised suspension makes it easier for the vehicle to navigate through modest mounds of snow. There is a modicum of mechanical protection underneath for occasional off-roading adventures. As a crossover, it is built as a unibody (car) but with features (pretty tame) of a truck (raised suspension, front fog lights, big tires). The Grand Touring model was dressed in 19-inch alloy wheels (P225 tires), a spoiler and dual three-inch alloy exhaust tips at the rear, wraparound headlamps and a honeycomb grille in front. The honeycomb design even surrounds an upper half of the fog light assembly. Legroom is ample in front

and rear seats, at least for persons not exceeding 6-feet, 4-inches in height. Taller folk might feel cramped but they can shop for larger vehicles. Mazda’s CX-5 powerplant in the Grand Touring model is a Skyactive 2.5-liter, 184-horsepower, chain-driven, dual overhead cam, four-cylinder engine mated to a shiftable six-speed automatic transmission. A smaller 2-liter engine is available. Fuel (regular unleaded) usage during the test week in the Grand Touring model was 24.5 miles per gallon in mostly highway driving with one 200-pound adult on board. The Environmental Protection Agency rates the CX-5 at 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. Mazda engineers claim Skyactive reinvents the internal combustion engine. What the trademark process does is increase a direct injection engine’s compression ratio while

reducing residual gas in the exhaust system. Torque is on the losing end, but fuel economy is the beneficiary on the other end. Expect to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in nine to 10 seconds. Prices start at $21,545 for a front-wheel-drive CX-5 with a 2-liter, four-cylinder, 155-horsepower Skyactive engine mated to a six-speed (automatic or manual) transmission. An upgrade $24,965 Touring model has the more potent 2.5-liter Skyactive powerplant. The tested and top-of-theline 2015 Grand Touring model cost $29,250 but in addition to power door locks, windows and exterior mirrors, there was a power moonroof and power front seats, which were covered in leather and not cloth. AWD was standard. Power mirrors were heated, as were the front seats, and came with turn lamps in them. Niceties in the tested model,

and many of these are included in the lesser priced models, included smart start, keyless pushbutton ignition, one-touch, up and down driver’s window, tilt and telescoping steering column, intermittent front (rain-sensing) and rear wipers, privacy glass, dual zone climate control, air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth, compact disc and MP3 players, auxiliary and USB audio input, AM-FM radio with presets for satellite radio as well, grab handles, multiple beverage holders and storage bins. The Bose sound system has nine speakers. Insulation factors were good as little road or engine noise invaded the cabin. The ride was fine with no harsh bumps or erratic rocking behavior on less than perfect roads. The suspension system relies on struts in front and multilinks in the rear. Gas shocks, coil springs and stabilizer bars front and rear are nothing out of the ordinary. Vented disc brakes measure 11.7 inches in front and 11.9 inches in the rear. They are a big reason why this vehicle can come to a stop from 60 mph in less than 130 feet. Safety fare includes traction and stability controls, antilock brakes, daytime running lamps, airbags in front (including sides) and overhead for two rows. The Grand Touring model also had a rearview camera, rear park sensors and a blind spot monitoring system. Anchors and tethers for child seats are provided in the two rear rows. Hill assist is standard. The navigation system is in a $1,425 option package that also includes automatic load leveling and high intensity discharge headlights. Warranty coverage is three years or 36,000 miles with 24hour roadside assistance and five years or 60,000 miles on the powertrain. Of the 15.5 million new vehicles sold in the United States in 2013, 79,544 were CX-5s.

Emma Roberts (left) and James Franco star in Gia Coppola’s directing debut “Palo Alto,” which is based on short stories by James Franco.

Famous Hollywood scions bring style to ‘Palo Alto’ By STEPHANIE MERRY The Washington Post The movie-making Coppolas keep coming. The latest member of the famous film family to gain notice is Gia Coppola, Francis Ford Coppola’s granddaughter, and at just 27 she has written and directed her first movie. “Palo Alto” is based on short stories by James Franco, and the adaptation of this coming-of-age tale is stylishly brought to the screen, even if it feels a bit light on substance. The movie also stars a couple of other Hollywood legacies: Emma Roberts (daughter of Eric, niece of Julia) and Jack Kilmer (son of Val, who also makes an appearance, and Joanne Whalley). The good news is that none of the three need to rely on nepotism. Each proves to be talented, which is especially notable for Kilmer given that “Palo Alto” is his first movie. Roberts and Kilmer play April and Teddy, two high-schoolers who harbor not-so-secret crushes on each other. But before they can profess their feelings, they both make drunken

decisions during a rager that drives a wedge between them. And so they go about their lives separately, and their stories are told through a series of vignettes. We see April having imagined conversations in her bedroom and babysitting the son of her icky, flirtatious soccer coach (Franco). Teddy, meanwhile, spends his time going to art class or doing mandatory community service, thanks in part to the negative influence of his best friend, Fred (Nat Wolff). Fred is a live wire, always taking things a step (or 10) too far. He holds an ominous sway over the movie, especially when he’s preying on Emily (Zoe Levin), a sadeyed loner who thinks promiscuity might be a path to love even though each tryst inevitably makes her feel dejected. Like her aunt Sofia Coppola (“Lost in Translation,” “The Bling Ring”), Gia Coppola has a keen ability to create a mood. “Palo Alto” conjures the strange mix of malaise and desperation that marks adolescence. But there are times when the

director tries too hard. Shots of dolls and stuffed animals in the same room as a pair of teens doing things their parents wouldn’t approve of sends a message about the complicated opposing forces during that purgatory between childhood and adulthood. But Coppola repeats the same not-so-subtle messaging again and again until the images lose their meaning. “Palo Alto” starts strong but runs out of momentum. Strangely, as aimless vignettes give way to bigger life events – as April and her coach begin an affair and Fred grows increasingly erratic – the movie becomes less interesting. Even so, this is an auspicious start for Coppola. She has room to improve, but she also has a wealth of potential advisers and, even better, at 27, also has the time.

• “Palo Alto” received two-anda-half stars out of four. The film is rated R and contains strong sexual content, nudity, drug and alcohol use and pervasive language, all involving teens. It runs 98 minutes.

Exercise floor show detracts from visits Dear Abby: When my husband and I go to visit my mother (in another city) every other month or so, my brother and his wife insist on coming over to see us while we’re there. Our visits usually last two or three days. Many times when they come over, my sister-in-law will start doing her exercise routine, including floor exercises, which are, in my husband’s and my opinion, unbecoming and inappropriate to do in front of other people. How do we deal with this? Are we crazy to feel awkward when she’s lying on her back doing these pelvic thrusts? Would it be out of line to ask her NOT to do this in the future? My brother says, “She won’t listen to me, so it wouldn’t do any good to talk to her,” so we know talking to her won’t help. What do you suggest? – Feeling Awkward Dear Feeling Awkward: Here’s how I’d handle it. Talk to her anyway, and ask her to please refrain from doing these exercises in your presence because it makes you uncomfortable. But if that doesn’t work and she starts “performing,”

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips stand up and say, “Hey, folks. Let’s go out for a walk (or coffee, or a sandwich),” and put an end to her bid for attention that way. Dear Abby: My boyfriend will have “scheduled” sex with me – only after he has had his shower in the evening or in the morning. It’s driving me crazy. I have tried many ways to get him to have sex spontaneously, but he won’t budge. It’s starting to be a turn-off because it’s not the “right time.” What do I do? – Looser Than That In Detroit Dear Looser: Your boyfriend may have a touch of OCD, or need to feel “in control” when he has sex. In other words, if the encounter is not his idea and at the time he chooses, he doesn’t get turned on. There’s help for him if he’s willing to admit there “may” be a problem. But if he isn’t, then find yourself another fella because

nothing is likely to change. Dear Abby: My sister-in-law is being married in September. I am in the wedding. My wife and I are having a baby in June, but the bride does not want to include my new baby. I think she is concerned people will pay attention to the baby and not her. Many distant relatives will attend and this may be the only time they will see my son. She plans to invite more than 200 people. Am I right to be upset that my son, her nephew, is not invited? – John Doe In Plano, Texas Dear John Doe: I don’t think so. It’s the bride’s day, and you should abide by her wishes without complaining. If she prefers not to have her wedding disrupted by an infant who needs feeding or changing, it’s her choice. Because you want to show off your new baby, bring along pictures and pass them around. I’m sure the relatives will be thrilled to see them. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Most hiatal hernias do not require treatment Dear Doctor K: My mother was recently diagnosed with a “sliding hernia.” What is this? Dear Reader: A “sliding hernia” is a type of hiatal hernia. OK, so what’s a hiatal hernia? A hernia occurs when part of an organ juts through an opening into an area where it shouldn’t. The stomach is an organ that is supposed to stay in the abdomen, for example. The abdomen is separated from the chest by a flat, dish-like plate of muscle called the diaphragm. Above the diaphragm are the lungs, heart and esophagus (the swallowing tube). Below are the stomach, intestines and other abdominal organs. The very bottom of the esophagus and the very top of the stomach are joined right at the diaphragm. A hiatal hernia is named for the hiatus, an opening in the diaphragm. Food swallowed down the esophagus normally enters the stomach just below the diaphragm. In most people, that opening is small enough that the stomach could not fit through it. In a hiatal hernia, however, the upper part of the stomach slips up through the diaphragm into the chest. The term “sliding” means that the junction between the stomach and esophagus

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff moves up and down. Unlike the case in most people, the junction is not stuck right at the diaphragm. (On my website, AskDoctorK.com, I’ve put an illustration of a normal, tight hiatus and a hiatal hernia.) Sliding hiatal hernias are very common. Smokers, overweight people and women older than 50 are more likely to develop one. And certain activities or conditions that increase pressure within the abdomen can increase the risk of developing a sliding hiatal hernia. They include persistent or heavy coughing, vomiting, straining while defecating, sudden physical exertion and pregnancy. Many people with hiatal hernias have no symptoms at all. Hopefully, your mother is one of those. Others have heartburn or gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). This tends to be worse when they lean forward, strain or lie down. Still others may have a hard time swallowing, or chronic belching. Sliding hiatal hernias rarely

cause major complications. Most people with hiatal hernias do not require treatment. If your mother has reflux symptoms, lifestyle changes might help. For example, she can try eating smaller, more frequent meals. She should also avoid eating for at least two hours before going to bed and sit up for at least one hour after eating. If lifestyle changes do not relieve her symptoms, medication can help. She can try one or more of the many antacids and acid blockers on the market. Few people with a sliding hiatal hernia require surgery. In fact, I’ve never had a patient with a hiatal hernia who required it. Surgery is usually reserved for patients who have persistent reflux symptoms or inflammation of the esophagus that does not heal with medication. So, your mother has a quite common condition. And there almost surely will be good treatments for it – if your mother has symptoms from it.

Girl learns new boyfriend’s history of abuse through ex Dr. Wallace: I’m 20 and the guy I’m seeing is 22. We met at a mutual friend’s party and have been dating for two months. Mike is a nice guy and always a gentleman when we are together. I was invited to a baby shower for Mike’s sister a couple of weeks ago and, while I was there I met one of Mike’s ex-girlfriends. When I found out who she was, I introduced myself and told her I was dating Mike. I asked her why she broke up with him and she said that he had physically and sexually abused her, so she had him arrested and he was found guilty and spent time behind bars for his criminal behavior. I was shocked and told her I couldn’t believe it about Mike. She said that if I didn’t believe her to ask his sister. When I spoke with his sister, she admitted that it was true and that he had also abused another girlfriend. I left the shower and went home and cried. When I saw Mike, he admitted that he slapped his ex-girlfriend because she was seeing another guy behind his back. He denied abusing his other girlfriend and gave me her number to call so it would prove that he wasn’t violent with her. When I called her she said she had no comment and hung up on me. Now I don’t know what to think and I’m very confused because I think I might be in love with this guy. What is your advice? – Nameless, Schereville, Ind. Dear Nameless: Even if he behaves like a gentleman with you, I have to believe that an ex-girlfriend and his sister are truthful when they both say he is physically and sexually violent. Dump the guy immediately

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace before he gets violent with you. Guys who batter females are psychologically ill and, without professional help, will continue this despicable and cowardly behavior when something triggers their aggression. It’s almost impossible for a guy to overcome this illness unless he receives the necessary professional treatment he so desperately needs. Dr. Wallace: I’m amazed at all of the uproar over professional athletes that have admitted to or are suspected of using steroids. If an athlete chooses to have a bigger and stronger body by using steroids, what’s the big deal? A lot of athletes take vitamin pills. Aren’t they doing the same thing – making the body more potent and more and more powerful? I think steroids should be considered legal. Do you agree? – Connor, Altoona, Pa. Dear Connor: Vitamin supplements do help all people, including athletes, to have a healthy body, but unlike steroids, they won’t cause immediate and longterm dangerous side effects, are not addictive and won’t cause physical deterioration that could result in death. Steroids are banned in all forms of athletic competition. Only those who place personal accomplishment above honor take the chance of not being caught as a steroid user. Simply put, steroid users are cheaters! • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@ galesburg.net.


CROSSWORD

SUDOKU

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

• Friday, May 16, 2014

CELEBRITY CIPHER

Albert Einstein said: “If A is success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x, y is play, and z is keeping your mouth shut.” If B is success in bridge, x is bidding, y is declarer-play and defense, and z is keeping your mouth shut whenever partner makes a mistake. However, for success in today’s deal, South needs to find the best play to bring home nine tricks in no-trump. What should he do after West leads the heart jack? South starts with eight top tricks: one spade, three hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. He has two principal chances to generate an extra winner: Find hearts 3-3 or establish a second spade trick. The first is unlikely, given the lead, but declarer should take the first trick and cash another heart. When East follows, South can afford to cash his last heart; but here East discards a diamond. How should declarer play the spades? If entries were no issue, best would be to cash dummy’s ace, then to duck a round of the suit. Dummy would be entered again and a third round led toward the queen. Here, though, that is impossible. Some would just play a spade to the ace and return one to the queen – and here go down. But it cannot cost to play a low spade from each hand on the first round of the suit. When declarer regains the lead, he plays a spade to dummy’s ace. Here the king appears, but if his majesty does not, South could still lead toward his queen. He would get home whenever East has the king, or the suit is 3-3, or West has king-singleton or king-doubleton.
