Woman’s club to host fashion show A few months ago, I was contacted by a member of the Batavia Woman’s Club about an opportunity. Would I want to be in the club’s annual fashion show? Well, I’d never been in a fashion show before, but there is a first time for everything! So, sure, why not hit the runway? The show will be from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Nov. 5 at the Q Center, 1405 N. Fifth Ave., St. Charles, and will include fashions from Evernia, Flair on 3rd and C.Rinella Designs, all based in Geneva. Cindy Kieckhefer, a member of the Batavia Woman’s Club who is helping organize the fashion show, said she is hoping to bring some energy, excitement and “really cool, different” clothing to the show. “It’s all about community and relationships,” she said, noting the Batavia Woman’s Club is striving to keep the show as local as possible and present models from all walks of life. “... I want the message that we are great no matter what size or shape [one is in].” Fred Astaire Dance Studio in St. Charles will kick off the fashion show,

The opening number will be “We Are Family,” which should hit things off on a high note, Kieckhefer said. In addition, a silent auction will take place, and raffle items also will be up for grabs, including some 2017 Chicago Cubs tickets to a crosstown game.

The cost is $50 and includes lunch. Proceeds will benefit the Elderday Center in Batavia, which offers a comprehensive adult day program of socialization, recreation and health maintenance that reinforces each participant’s self-worth and dignity, while enhancing current skills and abilities. Kieckhefer noted the fashion show brings exposure to the boutiques and that the family theme illustrates that the community cares about watching out for one another. “[And] to bring awareness to Elderday and how it affects our community,” she said.

I ran cross country in high school and it brought back a lot of memories.” “The trail is great,” Nancy said. “We do about 10 races a year.” About 50 volunteers worked the event. They monitored runners along the course, served refreshments, and handed out medals to the top finishers. With the recent hurricane disaster in Haiti, organizers see the donation to Hope for Haitians as especially timely. “This really raises awareness for the charity,” said volunteer Mike Dorrance of St. Charles. “And we’re encouraging a healthy lifestyle.”

Zimmerman Ford to match Salvation Army donations KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE editorial@kcchronicle.com ST. CHARLES – Zimmerman Ford in St. Charles joins fellow donors from the Tri-Cities in promising to match donations up to $10,000 that are raised during The Salvation Army’s 30-day fundraising challenge through Oct. 31. The charity hopes to raise the $20,000 needed to sustain services such as food and emergency assistance, plus after-school programs, a news release stated. “The Salvation Army has been fighting for the needs of families in the Tri-Cities for over 65 years,” Lt. Betsy Clark, corps officer for The Salvation Army Tri-City Corps and Joe K. An-

derson Community Center, stated in the release. “We are grateful for this partnership and the response of the community – a community that has always supported our work and ministry to those in need.” The need for food and financial assistance, along with child and senior educational programs, is increasing, according to the release. “The majority [of the match] is coming from Zimmerman Ford, which we are very grateful for,” stated Beverly Peterson, development director for The Salvation Army of the Fox Valley, in the release. Zimmerman Ford is a longtime supporter of the organization, she stated.

To help the charity reach the $20,000 goal, donations can be made online at salarmychicago.org/stcharles, by texting “stcharles” to 41444 or mailing The Salvation Army St. Charles, 1710 S. Seventh Ave., St. Charles, IL 60174. The local corps offers services such as emergency assistance in paying the rent or mortgage of people in need, providing clothing, food and prescription drugs, helping with utility bills, senior education, youth programming and offering worship services, the release stated. For more information, contact Beverly Peterson at beverly.peterson@ usc.salvationarmy.org or Lt. Betsy Clark at betsy.clark@usc.salvationarmy.org.

circuit of area running events. “We do lots of these runs, although this is our first 5K cross country,” Matt Hoambrecker said. “It’s our first time not on asphalt.” The running trail laid out through scenic LeRoy Oakes was muddied by an overnight rain, but that didn’t seem to dampen anybody’s spirits. John Slater of St. Charles was a volunteer who rode a mountain bike in order to lead the runners through the course’s twists and turns. “Some of them were really fast,” Slater said. “They almost passed me.” At the end of the event, organizers handed out medals to men and women in several age categories. Married couple Dan and Nancy Roder of Elgin medaled in the 55 and older category, with Dan taking first

St. Charles School District 303’s Advanced Placement – or AP – open enrollment program has increased in participation and achievement in the last five years, officials reported Oct. 17 during the district’s Learning and Teaching Committee meeting. “The numbers are going up, the scores are going up,” said David Shiszer, the district’s director of assessment. The district instituted its AP open enrollment program in 2008 to offer its highest academic challenges to a greater number of students at St. Charles East and North high schools. Under the program, prerequisites or tests are not necessary for admission to AP classes, unlike before the program started, Superintendent Don Schlomann said. Open enrollment also allows AP students to waive the AP exams at the end of their courses if they choose, Schlomann said. Shiszer said younger students are getting more involved with the AP program, as classes are open to ninththrough 12th-graders. Districtwide, 1,409 students took AP classes in 2016 – up 39 percent from five years ago. The number of AP exams taken in 2016 was 2,537 – up 47 percent from 2012. The number of AP exams taken in the district has been greater than the number of AP students because students may take more than one AP course, and some take as many as six. Scores on AP tests can range from 1 to 5. Scores in the 3 to 5 range qualify students for college credits. This year in District 303, the percentage of AP exam scores being 3 or higher was 46 percent more than five years ago. Statewide, 66 percent of AP exams had scores between 3 and 5, compared to 77 percent in District 303. School board President Kathy Howell praised the AP open enrollment program’s progress. “This is something we couldn’t have even hoped for [when the program started]. It’s really gratifying,” Howell said. Among the highest achieving AP students this year were 166 AP Scholars, those receiving scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP exams; AP Scholars with Honor, those receiving an average score of 3.25 on all AP exams taken and

ST. CHARLES – Distance runners faced a tough challenge and triumphed during the annual St. Charles Fall Classic for Charity 5K Run. They plodded through a wet and hilly course Oct. 15 at LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve, earning medals, improving their running skills and raising money for some worthy causes. The charity run is one of the signature events of the St. Charles Knights of Columbus Council 12497. “It was muddy and slippery and a whole lot of fun,” said Jim Webb of St. Charles, who ran the course and helped organize the run. With about 100 runners registered for the event, along with many sponsors, the charity run netted about $6,000, Webb said. A quarter of that total will go to the Hope for Haitians charity, and another 25 percent to Special Olympics, Webb said. The rest will be used by the Knights of Columbus for its many other charitable projects and programs. The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men’s fraternal service organization. The St. Charles council was established in 1999 and is composed of about 320 men from the St. Patrick and St. John Neumann parishes in St. Charles, member Gary Renn said. The 5K run, which also included a 2K walk, attracted participants of all ages and abilities. Many, such as brothers Tim and Matt Hoambrecker of Elgin, were dedicated distance runners who make the

ST. CHARLES – In announcing a new director for the St. Charles Public Library, board officials chose a candidate with no previous experience as a library director, records show. The board voted Sept. 14 to hire Edith Craig, currently the communications manager at the DeKalb Public Library, as the new director, at a salary of $108,000, officials said. The previous director, Pam Leffler, resigned in February. Leffler’s salary was $115,000, officials said. Craig will start Nov. 1, officials said. In an email to the library’s 108-member staff, board President Tory Haines acknowledged that one of their major concerns was Craig’s lack of experience as a director. “The board placed experience very low on our list of priorities,” Haines’ email stated. “Our previous director had a stellar résumé and a wealth of experience, but was not a good fit for our library.” Leffler replaced Diana Brown, who had been library director for 39 years. Leffler did not return a voicemail message left at the Morton Grove Public Library. Haines’ email also stated that the library has “known internal issues, which do not make it attractive” to candidates for library director. “In this regard, our candidate pool was what it was,” Haines’ email stated. “The board will focus on those internal issues and work to change the spirit of our library. … Yes, we have an inexperienced director who is a good and smart woman. She is the board’s employee.”

News to your phone Sign up for breaking news text and email alerts at KCChronicle.com/ subscribe. According to Craig’s résumé, she has 10 years experience working at the DeKalb library. From 2006 to 2011 she was a bilingual youth services craft coordinator, and as communications manager from 2011 she managed a budget of $33,000. Craig has a bachelor’s degree in finance and a master’s degree in library information and science, her résumé states. In addition to working at the library, Craig was also a financial support analyst from 2009 to 2011, according to her résumé. Haines’ email to staff stated that the library is working with consultant Donna Dziedzic, a retired library director from Naperville, as the board considers a community survey and moves forward to revisit its strategic plan to “establish a fresh course for this library.” “Some people employed here now may not feel comfortable with that course, and we will gladly accept their resignation,” Haines’ email to staff stated. “We are serious about getting to the bottom of whatever internal issues we have.” The board’s decision to hire a director without director experience, coupled with the tone of Haines’ email, prompted Lisa Bennett to quit. In a Sept. 26 resignation email sent to board members and the staff, Bennett charged that it was the board’s micromanagement of the previous director that led to Leffler’s resignation and spurred the library’s “internal issues” that Haines referenced.

“They hired a director less qualified than every single one of the [library’s] department heads, almost all of the reference staff and at least a quarter of” the circulation staff, Bennett’s resignation email stated. “She [Craig] is wholly unqualified to be the director of any organization with a staff of any more than five and any budget larger than $100,000.” “I really fear for the staff,” Bennett said. “They are really dedicated, really professional and really afraid. … There are no ‘internal issues.’ This was the best job ever – the best coworkers ever. I loved the public, the patrons, the boss – that’s how everyone feels about working there. There aren’t ‘internal issues.’” In an email response to questions about the hiring of Craig and internal issues, Haines wrote that the board was seeking a person “with the ability to build consensus and with strong administrative and financial skills to manage our $6 million budget.” “We chose Edith Craig because she possesses those qualities, her leadership in the DeKalb community and her strong customer service experience,” Haines’ response stated. “We are very proud and confident in our choice.” Haines did not respond to claims that the board micromanaged the previous director or that it is the cause of the “internal issues.” Craig said she understands the staff’s concerns, but that her actions as director will show her experience. “I don’t have director experience,” Craig said. “I have much experience working with teams. Everybody has to start somewhere. I’m a fast learner – so I don’t take offense. I understand where the staff is coming from. My goal is to work with the staff and the board. I hope one of the reasons they chose me is because of my integrity and communication skills.”

To the Electors of the State of Illinois: The Illinois Constitution establishes a structure for government and laws. There are three ways to initiate change to the Illinois Constitution: (1) a constitutional convention may propose changes to any part; (2) the General Assembly may propose changes to any part; or (3) a petition initiative may propose amendments limited to structural and procedural subjects contained in the Legislative Article. The people of Illinois must approve any changes to the Constitution before they become effective. The purpose of this document is to inform you of proposed changes to the Illinois Constitution and provide you with a brief explanation and a summary of the arguments in favor of and in opposition to the proposed amendment. Proposed changes in the existing constitutional amendment are indicated by underscoring all new matter and by crossing with a line all matter which is to be deleted. PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO ADD SECTION 11 TO ARTICLE IX OF THE ILLINOIS CONSTITUTION ARTICLE IX – REVENUE SECTION 11. TRANSPORTATION FUNDS (a) No moneys, including bond proceeds, derived from taxes, fees, excises, or license taxes relating to registration, title, or operation or use of vehicles, or related to the use of highways, roads, streets, bridges, mass transit, intercity passenger rail, ports, airports, or to fuels used for propelling vehicles, or derived from taxes, fees, excises, or license taxes relating to any other transportation infrastructure or transportation operation, shall be expended for purposes other than as provided in subsections (b) and (c). (b) Transportation funds may be expended for the following: the costs of administering laws related to vehicles and transportation, including statutory refunds and adjustments provided in those laws; payment of highway obligations; costs for construction, reconstruction, maintenance, repair, and betterment of highways, roads, streets, bridges, mass transit, intercity passenger rail, ports, airports, or other forms of transportation; and other statutory highway purposes. Transportation funds may also be expended for the State or local share of highway funds to match federal aid highway funds, and expenses of grade separation of highways and railroad crossings, including protection of at-grade highways and railroad crossings, and, with respect to local governments, other transportation purposes as authorized by law. (c) The costs of administering laws related to vehicles and transportation shall be limited to direct program expenses related to the following: the enforcement of traffic, railroad, and motor carrier laws; the safety of highways, roads, streets, bridges, mass transit, intercity passenger rail, ports, or airports; and the construction, reconstruction, improvement, repair, maintenance, operation, and administration of highways, under any related provisions of law or any purpose related or incident to, including grade separation of highways and railroad crossings. The limitations to the costs of administering laws related to vehicles and transportation under this subsection (c) shall also include direct program expenses related to workers’ compensation claims for death or injury of employees of the State’s transportation agency; the acquisition of land and the erection of buildings for highway purposes, including the acquisition of highway rights-of-way or for investigations to determine the reasonable anticipated future highway needs; and the making of surveys, plans, specifications, and estimates for the construction and maintenance of flight strips and highways. The expenses related to the construction and maintenance of flight strips and highways under this subsection (c) are for the purpose of providing access to military and naval reservations, defense-industries, defense-industry sites, and sources of raw materials, including the replacement of existing highways and highway connections shut off from general use at military and naval reservations, defense-industries, and defense-industry sites, or the purchase of rights-of-way. (d) None of the revenues described in subsection (a) of this Section shall, by transfer, offset, or otherwise, be diverted to any purpose other than those described in subsections (b) and (c) of this Section. (e) If the General Assembly appropriates funds for a mode of transportation not described in this Section, the General Assembly must provide for a dedicated source of funding. (f) Federal funds may be spent for any purposes authorized by federal law. EXPLANATION The proposed amendment adds a new Section to the Revenue Article of the Illinois Constitution that provides revenue generated from transportation related taxes and fees (referred to as “transportation funds”) shall be used exclusively for transportation related purposes. Transportation related taxes and fees include motor fuel taxes, vehicle registration fees, and other taxes and user fees dedicated to public highways, roads, streets, bridges, mass transit (buses and rail), ports, or airports. Under the proposed amendment, transportation funds may be used by the State or local governments only for the following purposes: (1) costs related to administering transportation and vehicle laws, including public safety purposes and the payment of obligations such as bonds; (2) the State or local share necessary to secure federal funds or for local government transportation purposes as authorized by law; (3) the construction, reconstruction, improvement, repair, maintenance, and operation of highways, mass transit, and railroad crossings; (4) expenses related to workers’ compensation claims for death or injury of transportation agency employees; and (5) to purchase land for building highways or buildings for to be used for highway purposes. This new Section is a limitation on the power of the General Assembly or a unit of local government to use, divert, or transfer transportation funds for a purpose other than transportation. It does not, and is not intended to, impact or change the way in which the State and local governments use sales taxes, including the sales and excise tax on motor fuel, or alter home rule powers granted under this Constitution. It does not seek to change the way in which the State funds programs administered by the Illinois Secretary of State, Illinois Department of Transportation, and operations by the Illinois State Police directly dedicated to the safety of roads, or entities or programs funded by units of local government. Further, the Section does not impact the expenditure of federal funds, which may be spent for any purpose authorized by federal law. FORM OF BALLOT Proposed Amendment to the 1970 Illinois Constitution Explanation of Amendment The proposed amendment adds a new section to the Revenue Article of the Illinois Constitution. The proposed amendment provides that no moneys derived from taxes, fees, excises, or license taxes, relating to registration, titles, operation, or use of vehicles or public highways, roads, streets, bridges, mass transit, intercity passenger rail, ports, or airports, or motor fuels, including bond proceeds, shall be expended for other than costs of administering laws related to vehicles and transportation, costs for construction, reconstruction, maintenance, repair, and betterment of public highways, roads, streets, bridges, mass transit, intercity passenger rail, ports, airports, or other forms of transportation, and other statutory highway purposes, including the State or local share to match federal aid highway funds. You are asked to decide whether the proposed amendment should become part of the Illinois Constitution. YES –––– NO

of Education – or IBSE – contracted with starting in 2016. The switch to the SAT has a benefit for families whose students want to take exam preparation classes, as the College Board offers SAT preparation classes for free when students take them through Kahn Academy, Shiszer said. Students taking the ACT have to pay outside companies for the preparation classes, he said. District officials reviewed the state’s change from the ACT to the SAT during the Oct. 17 committee meeting. Under the ISBE contract with the College Board, the

state will provide school districts with funds to administer only SAT exams for public high school juniors. The state previously had funded ACT testing. When the ISBE announced the change last year, many St. Charles students already had signed up for the 2016 ACT exam and had paid for preparation classes. So, the district decided to go ahead with ACT exam last spring at a cost of between $40,000 and $60,000, Shiszer said. Colleges and universities in Illinois typically accept both ACT and SAT scores for college applicants.

PICTURING

... with the St. Charles History Museum The most special story at the heart of St. Charles is that of Col. Edward J. Baker and how he remade the town with the vast wealth of his brother-in-law, John W. Gates. Baker’s niece, Dellora Norris, and her family carried on that legacy, but at the heart of the story is Col. Baker, who gave generously to make St. Charles the “Beauty Spot” of the Fox River Valley. St. Charles was known across the world for Col. Baker’s racehorse Greyhound, the world’s greatest horse who set and broke many records. Col. Baker named his race team Hotel Baker Stables, and the hotel was famous as the race headquarters for Col. Baker’s champion trotters. After competing, Greyhound retired in 1940 and gave exhibitions around the country.

Sep Palin (not pictured) trained and drove Greyhound in all of his record-setting performances. His stable mascot Spot is looking over Col. Baker’s shoulder while he visits Greyhound during the racing season.

I love how young people see things. I was lucky enough a couple of weeks ago to be joined by a young student interested in photography and her mom on an official “job shadow.”  I took them to the annual Scarecrow Festival in downtown St. Charles, handed off one of my cameras, and let her do her thing. I did my usual routine of circling Lincoln Park, walking through a carnival area and heading over to the build-your-own scarecrow area.  It was my young student who saw this adorable pup dressed with a headless horseman on his back.

“Been there, done that...” I hate to admit it and probably shouldn’t but I don’t like to clean and tend a yard. I’ll be honest; I have better things to do with my time. I would rather travel, visit with friends, take long walks and pursue my other interests. I love everything that Oak Crest offers and my family and I are especially appreciative that Oak Crest has taken much of the work and worry out of my future. Been there, done that pretty much sums up life before Oak Crest. Haven’t been there, haven’t done it yet sums up life now. Come and enjoy the Oak Crest experience.

Fall brings turtle hatchlings, including the cutest of all This week’s column is the second in a series chronicling lesser-known fall season phenomena. Ah, babies. What’s cuter than a tiny robin nestling, its mouth gaping widely as it waits to be fed? Or a tiny fawn curled up in the woods, sun dappling its white-spotted coat? I may get a little pushback on this one, as cuteness is one of those terms that is completely subjective. But the other day we found a baby animal that, as far as I’m concerned, epitomizes the very essence of cuteness and, yes, even charm. What’s more, its appearance is an example of an annual event that has been taking place every late summer and fall for, I’ll boldly estimate, millions of years. Take a look at Sternotherus odoratus, a delightful little turtle hatchling we encountered during a recent field trip. Barely bigger than a nickel, it was clearly only recently emerged from an egg Mama Odoratus deposited sometime between two and three months ago. Turtles, being ectotherms – the fancy word for cold-blooded – don’t incubate their eggs. Instead, they ei-

GOOD NATURED Pam Otto ther dig a nest or lay their eggs among debris and then let summer’s ambient heat provide the warmth the embryos need to develop. As the months progress, so do the turtles – provided the nest doesn’t get predated or dug up and consumed by foraging raccoons or skunks or any number of other animals equipped with a nose for sniffing and claws for digging. As summer draws to a close, some of the surviving nests begin to erupt. Hatchlings bust their way out of leathery-shelled eggs and make their way to water – river, creek, pond or marsh – where they’ll spend the winter in a hibernation-like state called brumation. Other nests, typically of clutches that were laid a bit later, also may experience activity; those hatchlings, however, will wait out the cold weather in place and make the trek to water come spring. You may have been lucky enough to come across a baby turtle this fall.

I know I received several emails from folks who’d found baby snappers and spiny softshells in September. And now we can add odoratus to that list. Actually, I think I’ll go one step further and note its common names: the eastern musk turtle, or stinkpot. That’s right, the cute little turtle with the bright eyes and striking head stripes has a hidden, and somewhat unflattering, feature: They smell bad. But not without good reason! The strong musk they release when disturbed appears to provide them with a chemical defense against predators. What’s interesting about these glands, which really aren’t uncommon in the world of turtles – most species have them – is that odoratus has developed the ability to release them voluntarily. That sort of behavior would imply that the odor is used for a particular purpose. As our area’s smallest turtles – adults measure about 5 inches long – stinkpots would certainly seem to need an edge when it comes to defense. Their list of potential predators includes raccoons, wading birds such as egrets and herons, large-mouth bass

and even their close cousins, snapping turtles. (The species also has one recorded incident of “death by mussel,” wherein a pond mussel, Ligumia subrostrata, clamped its shell down on the head and neck of a stinkpot as it was presumably foraging. The ill-fated individual died of either drowning or suffocation. Not really predation, but certainly weird enough to note.) The day we found our little musk turtle, I was so surprised – thrilled, even – that it didn’t even occur to me to try and catch a whiff of its, ah, essence. Instead, I took pictures. Lots and lots of date-stamped pictures to document exactly when this small, intriguing and incredibly cute baby reptile was found. I want to be sure and remember to look for hatchling stinkpots again, and next fall will be here before we know it.

The officer told Irwin to Jeffrey J. walk away and leave to Irwin avoid problems, the report stated.

Expanded search power. Sometimes, available properties aren’t advertised. A REALTOR® can help find opportunities the web sites don’t list.

Sofa hunting? Consider a sectional SPONSORED BY

By Diane Krieger Spivak Mention the word “sectional” and the term “familyfriendly” often pops up. And it’s true, sectionals are a convenient solution for providing seating for Mom, Dad, the kids, and even Fido and Fluffy. But their versatility makes them a smart choice for anybody, whether you have a family or not, love to entertain, have a small space, or just want a sleek, tailored look in your living space. Sectionals, which literally come in two or more separate sections, can do wonders for many room challenges, including a small room, narrow room, or a large room that needs to be sectioned. Sectionals usually come in either a U-shape or and L-shape. They offer an almost unlimited number of section styles, including left-handed, right-handed, armless, center, single, double, triple, chaise, sleeper, curved, loveseat and more.

You can make them as large as you want, in basically any configuration you want. Individual pieces allow you to sit on them, recline on them, even sleep on them. Note that sectionals aren’t just for large rooms, either. Small rooms can benefit, as well, because a sectional provides more seating in a smaller space than say, a sofa and several chairs. It’s also worth mentioning the importance of drafting a floor plan for the room where you’ll be placing your sectional. That way, you can determine which of the above-mentioned specific pieces will fit best. For instance, if your television is the focal point of your room, make sure your sectional pieces face the TV in such a way that viewers can watch comfortably. Keep in mind, too, your floor plan should also include ease of access to both sides of your sectional so that people aren’t crawling over one another to sit down. Finally, remember that sectionals give you the opportunity to design a room just the way you want it, for your personal lifestyle.

High-end vehicles deserve high-end winter protection SPONSORED BY

It is highly unlikely you’ll see someone plowing through the snow this coming winter in a Porsche 911, or a BMW Z4, or a Mercedes SLR. Those are not simply “cars.” They are the finelytuned, high-tech, leading-edge results of the true craft of producing the finest motoring machines on the planet. Such vehicles -- and snow, ice, road salt and slush -- simply do not mix. Nor should they, because they are also costly long-term investments. Helping owners protecting those investments is the job of John Velazquez and his crew at Autobahn Automotive Service of St. Charles. Autobahn offers a winter storage preparation package that includes a full inspection and diagnostic analysis. Services also include stabilizing and topping off fuel, checking all other fluids, testing the battery, installing a trickle charger, and overinflating tires so come spring there are no “flat spots” from standing in storage over the winter months.

Autobahn is so-named because it specializes in German-made vehicles with renowned German engineering: Porsche, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Volkswagen but, occasionally, Volvo and some of the more rare exotics like Ferrari. But German-made vehicles are Autobahn’s specialty, reflecting Velazquez’s personal and professional training and interest. Velazquez has 16 years’ experience, including graduating first in his class at the Mercedes Elite program, and was trained at Universal Technical Institute. He worked for several Mercedes dealerships in Chicago and other states, including a dealership whose owner was trained in Germany. “The driving experience is superior to anything on the road,” he said. Along the way, he developed respect and admiration for the technology, design and quality of the vehicles. And that led to a deep understanding of what these vehicles mean to their owners. “For most people, it’s the second biggest investment we have (after a house). And we want or investment protected.”

Avoiding financial planning mistakes SPONSORED BY

The biggest financial planning mistake is probably not planning at all. Those who haven’t prepared for the future likely are going to encounter some major financial frustrations once they retire. Therefore, by making plans, you hopefully will enjoy a happier, less stressful retirement. There’s little doubt that no one imagines being hobbled in the future. You hope for the best so planning for the possibility that you may need assisted living, rehabilitation or another type of senior care is something some people don’t do. That’s a big mistake. Statistics show that most seniors are going to have health concerns. They’re going to require assistance and a cost comes with it. How do you prepare for it? Taking the necessary steps so that you’re capable of covering long-term care costs is significant. Don’t put it off and don’t bank on Medicare being your savior. It doesn’t cover long-term care.

One choice that has provided peace of mind for seniors is relocating to a senior retirement community, such as Plum Landing. Anyone who signs up for a 12-month lease at Plum Landing is guaranteed that rate will never change while they’re there! Remember, when you retire, that steady paycheck ends. Furthermore, consider inflation. Today’s costs aren’t going to be the same 10 or 20 years from now. Similarly, consider your lifestyle. If you’re not making as much money now as you were previously, how can you afford living the way you do? Similarly, while you may have savings, remember that you have those funds for a reason. In today’s tough world, you might have your own adult children who are struggling financially. They may need help, but giving to them could seriously complicate your own financial matters. Be careful with your money, especially with what you’ve worked hard for and set aside for your retirement years. Are your intrigued about the advantages of independent living?

I am often asked why it’s so important to buy a hearing aid from Geneva Hearing Services. There are several issues to consider, but these are the most important. 1) Geneva Hearing Services employs only licensed audiologists. There are two professionals who are licensed in the state of Illinois to sell hearing aids — an audiologist and a hearing aid dispenser: • Audiologists are required to have a master’s or doctoral degree. They are clinically and academically trained in all aspects of hearing and balance disorders, including tinnitus. • Hearing aid dispensers must have a minimum of an associate’s degree. 2) Geneva Hearing Services is not contracted or owned by any one manufacturer. This means we offer unbiased professional care and routinely update our training in order to provide our patients with the latest technologies available. This is not always the case at other offices. Stores like Beltone, Miracle Ear, and AccuQuest will typically recommend their own brand/manufacturer of hearing aid, thus limited the options available to the patient. — Maria Morrison, Au.D., Doctor of Audiology

By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – Kane County Board District 10 candidates talked about how they would keep taxes low, support mental health programs and stay in touch with voters. Speaking at a candidate forum Oct. 12, incumbent Susan Starrett, R-North Aurora, and Democratic challenger Todd Zies, a North Aurora fire captain and paramedic, each made the case for being the voters’ choice in the Nov. 8 general election. Starrett is seeking her second term. About 40 people attended the forum, hosted by the League of Women Voters of Central Kane County at the Kane County Branch Court in St. Charles. Batavia Access Television is providing video of the forum online at mybatv.com. “I have an MBA from the University of Illinois and studied finance and I also run a small business that is here

in Kane County,” Starrett said. “I understand how important it is to keep our taxes low.” Starrett said last year, she helped to bring in $3 million in state funds to Kane County, and brought in $230,000 to her district. “I made three promises when I first ran,” Starrett said. “One, I said I would never vote to increase taxes and I never have. Two, I said I would work to freeze our portion of the tax levy, which we did … and to date, we have saved $23 million. And the third thing is, I said that I would always work for efficiency in government and I would always look for outside funding sources to help so we can continue to keep the tax levy frozen and keep the taxes down.” Zies said he is the best candidate “because of my strong work ethics and my willingness to work with everyone.” “This career has been very rewarding to me. It is my desire to help people every chance that I get,” Zies said. “And for this reason, I feel I am the right candidate. I am a certified fire/ arson investigator for Kane County. I have been able to work with many agencies throughout Kane County to

identify if crimes that have been committed or if there have been safety issues or problems with a product. … I have developed a great working relationship between myself and the community.” Zies said economic development is important to Kane County, as well as retention of these businesses. “We need to keep our jobs here,” Zies said. Starrett said the most important issue facing the county is keeping the tax levy low. “The levy has allowed us to bring in new development,” Starrett said. Zies agreed that keeping taxes low was important, but added that the county’s transportation needs were also a priority. “The roads are very important because the county is growing by leaps and bounds,” Zies said. “As growth continues, we need to make sure the roads are in good shape.” In answer to several audience questions about mental health issues, both candidates said they supported crisis intervention training for law enforcement officers.

IS YOUR CENTRAL VISION BLURRY OR CROOKED?

Older adults, in particular, should take note if their central vision becomes blurry, hazy, or crooked. These are symptoms of “age-related macular degeneration” (AMD), which is the leading cause of legal blindness among seniors. It is important to diagnose AMD in its early stages to prevent severe vision loss. This eye condition, which involves deterioration of the central portion of the retina (called the “macula”), takes two forms: “Dry” AMD is caused by the formation of waste products (“drusen”) underneath the retina that cause atrophy. The more serious “wet” AMD involves the formation of leaky abnormal blood vessels beneath the retina. Typically, AMD progresses from the dry to the wet form, but some patients present with wet AMD initially. P.S. While anyone may develop either dry or wet AMD after about age 50, the average onset of wet AMD usually occurs in a person’s late 70s to early 80s.

Continued from page 23 “They have to make split-second decisions, and they have to be able to know who they are dealing with, or be able to look for signs and symptoms, especially ... people with mental health issues,” Zies said. Starrett said she has served on the county’s Mental Health Task Force for four years, making sure the county receives funding for the training. “We found that … all of the first-responders in Kane County – not just the sheriff’s department officers who have received this training – have seen a great change in how they are able to help people,” Starrett said. “And that is what our goal is – to help people.” Both candidates also said they supported funding a re-entry program to treat inmates with mental illness, but not in jail, to save money by keeping the jail population down. However, the Kane County Board recently voted not to allocate a riverboat grant for that program. “I support it 100 percent,” Starrett said. “We have actually already started this process … to receive federal grant money to help people with men-

By MARK FOSTER editorial@kcchronicle.com ST. CHARLES – Sharon and Vern Oie have been celebrated for their tireless efforts to make St. Charles a better place. On Oct. 6, the illustrious couple celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary with family and friends. Well-known throughout the community for their volunteer work, Vern and Sharon have individually or together received top St. Charles honors, including the prestigious Charlemagne and Barth awards. What’s the secret to staying married for 65 years? “You walk side by side,” said Vern, 90. “Neither one leans on the other. It’s hard to find someone to walk side by side with.”

Vern and Sharon Oie celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary by lighting a unity candle during ceremony. “You pick the right person,” said Sharon, 86. Vern and Sharon seem to have picked each other as soon as they met. Sharon was living with her parents in Springfield, and Vern had a job there with the

state’s conservation department. Mutual friends had arranged for them to meet at a picnic. “It was like, ‘Wow!’ I saw him, and it was, ‘My goodness’,” Sharon said. “He was too good to let get away.”

Vern’s reaction was no less immediate. “It was just ‘boing’,” Vern said. “There she was.” Within three weeks, the pair had already decided they were going to get married, and 18 months later they did, on Oct. 6, 1951. They raised two sons, Chris and David, and became key players in the St. Charles community. Vern and Sharon promoted community theater with the Playmakers organization, and the community as a whole with the River Corridor Foundation of St. Charles. Sharon was a founder of the Downtown St. Charles Partnership. Vern ran the successful Fox Valley Cleaners, served as chairman of the Fox Valley Airport Authority, worked with The Salvation Army in St. Charles and was even involved with the fledgling Batavia MainStreet organization. But it was their loving re-

Al Patten of Baker Memorial United Methodist Church. Together, the pair lit a unity candle. “Mom and dad seem to have been made for each other,” son Chris Oie of Geneva said. Son David Oie of St. Charles surprised his parents with a sheaf of recently discovered love letters Vern had written to Sharon. Two former St. Charles mayors were on hand to pay homage to the couple. “They shared their hearts with each other, but they have shared their hearts with the community of St. Charles as well,” Don DeWitte said. “It is a true partnership,” Sue Klinkhammer said. “What always struck me was that there is such great respect for each other.”

The holiday season is almost upon us and with it will come an increase in purchases of toys, gadgets and electronics and the batteries to power them. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, about 40 percent of all battery sales occur during the holiday season. Consider using rechargeable batteries to keep both your family and the earth happy. Have dead single-use or alkaline batteries sitting in a drawer? Don’t throw them out. Batteries that end up in the landfill can leak toxic chemicals into the soil.

Batteries can often be recycled at local retailers or hazardous household waste facilities. And what about the toys, gadgets and electronics themselves? According to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), Americans now own approximately 24 electronic products per household. And as people scramble to get the latest and greatest gadgets, they leave behind a large number of outdated, unwanted products called electronic, or “e-waste,” which can create a big problem environmentally. Keep the landfills clear or unwanted computer equipment, monitors, TVs, telephones, and stereos. Visit the website 1800Recyling. com to search recycling locations by city and material to help dispose of all your electronic and battery waste properly.

A look at Halloween: Then and now

Halloween really changes as I grow older. I still love Halloween time and enjoy looking at all the spooky decorations and goofy costumes, but there is no denying that as the years go by it has lost a bit of its excitement. As a kid, I spent years going out dressed up as Snow White or a pirate and got candy handed to me as I went door-to-door to different houses. I’ve now become the person who hands out Butterfingers and Kit Kats to kids as they walk up to my front door. Admittedly, the last time I went trick-or-treating was my freshman year of high school. That year I didn’t dress up as a witch or some princess. I simply “dressed up” as a Batavia High School football fan. Yes, I know, I was very creative with my BHS football jersey and wearing necklaces, bracelets and a headband in Batavia’s red and gold school colors. I guess you can say that I didn’t really care about putting on a costume that

Sure, that was a majority of the fun, but there were more ways to celebrate it than just that.

Primarily, at my elementary school, we had a Halloween parade. Each year, at the last half of the school day on Halloween, all the students would put on their Halloween costumes and parade inside and outside the school to show off their costumes. Parents

were even invited to watch the parade, too, and I remember my parents showing up every year to watch and take pictures of me walking alongside other students dressed up as superheroes, werewolves or angels. After the parade, all the students went back to their classrooms and had a Halloween party that parent volunteers helped organize and run. I recall playing little Halloween games and eating chocolate cupcakes with orange frosting and a spider ring on top of them. Us students typically got goodie bags filled with a variety of suckers and chocolate candies, Halloween pencils and washable tattoos. I can still remember all the Halloween songs, such as the iconic “Monster Mash” that used to play in the classrooms during the parties.     Nonetheless, Halloween is not a holiday I have forgotten. I still decorate for the holiday. My bedroom has lit-

tle ghost lights hanging over a shelf above my bed, and I have a few Halloween stuffed animals spread throughout the room. During the month of October, I generally eat a bowl of Franken Berry cereal every morning before class, just like I did when I was a child. Although I don’t partake in trick-or-treating anymore, my friends and I always make sure to get together every Halloween to celebrate. All anyone needs to do in order to have a small Halloween party with friends is to dress up in something silly, watch many classic Halloween movies and – of course – devour candy.

LETTERS Explaining thoughts about the VP debate To the editor: Truth deserves its day in court. It will not be spoken by the Republicrats. We need to hear from the independent, freethinkers. Their version of truth is closer to common sense and what “we the people” want.   I’m writing because I’m mad as heck, and I need to get two points off my intolerant mindset. First, the internet has been invented – no use to keep repeating stale and inaccurate info. You make fools of yourself, especially with the young voters who are turned off by political quackery.

THE FIRST

AMENDMENT

Stale rhetoric, such as equal pay for equal work, needs a rest. Political quackery? Osama bin Laden died in December 2001 of serious lung complications. Check out his obituary.  The most serious flaw in the vice presidential debate was the dishonesty on Syria and Russia. What the Republicrats do not want is “we the people” involved in foreign policy. The globalists want war, not so the American people. We are losing that battle, Trump and Pence have been mugged. The debates are all superficial, cosmetic, a charade for public consumption. The victim again is truth. Joan Solms Aurora

FINE FINISHES North girls take fourth at state golf tourney, Geneva’s Isenhart finishes third for boys / 33

St. Charles North’s Megan Furtney follows her shot during play in the Class 2A state tournament. Furtney placed ninth overall and the North Stars took fourth as a team at state. Douglas Cottle/PhotoNews - For Shaw Media


2015 as well as 2016 also had drastic improvements. Sophomore Tyler Isenhart shaved 21 strokes off last year’s score and tied for third place individually with a 148 mark. Senior Andrew Abel dropped six strokes as he tied for 32nd with a 157 total, and sophomore Jack McDonald cut 10 strokes as he tied for 81st with a 168. Senior Spencer Monroe (82-78-160, tied for 50th) improved on the second day of state and counted toward the team score. Junior Nick Green (80-87167, tied for 79th) counted in the first round, as did senior Casey Prentiss (8191-172, tied for 98th), while McDonald (87-81-168, tied for 81st) contributed in the second round.

By JASON ROSSI jrossi@shawmedia.com The only thing that eluded St. Charles North’s girls golf team at the Class 2A state tournament was a trophy. The North Stars placed fourth as a team, one spot back of a trophy, but did so with a 617 score that was 30 strokes better than their previous state best of 647 last season. “Overall we’re pleased with how it went for our team,” said sophomore Megan Furtney, who shot a 73 in the second round at Hickory Point Golf Club in Decatur on Oct. 15 to finish with a 145 total, good for ninth overall. “All the girls played really good golf. Our goal was maybe to place a little bit higher, but we shot a low score and everyone improved.” Furtney said not all elements of her game were in peak form, but she notched a second straight top-10 finish after placing fifth last year. “I’m very, very pleased with how we performed as a team,” said head coach Irish Whalen, who guided North to the third straight state berth during her tenure and the fourth straight overall. “Every year [I’ve been here] we’ve been putting up better and better numbers. This was a two-day low total for us. Other teams just made a few more birdies than us, and there’s nothing you can do about that.” Senior Kate Lillie (75-77-152) was top 20 as she tied for 17th. She and Furtney led the way for North. “Our No. 1 and No. 2 golfers put solid numbers together all year,” Whalen said. “Kate showed senior leadership all season and taught the kids how to be humble. Megan had an 18-hole average of 67.2 this year, and to shoot that level of golf is exceptional.” Sophomore Sarah Arnold went lower in the second round (78-77-155) to tie for 27th, and classmate Emma Hayes shot 81s in both rounds for a 162 score that tied for 60th. Senior Reagan Stanton (84-85-169, tied for 72nd) and sophomore Katelyn David (83-88-171, tied for 80th) also played at state. The seniors will be missed next season, but Furtney already is stoked about the potential of next year’s team. “I’m really excited,” Furtney said. “All I see for our team is success. All us sophomores have room to improve. We’ll see how it goes over the summer leading into the high school season, but I’m really excited.”

Marmion boys

It was a total team effort for the Cadets as they placed second in the Class 2A state meet at Weibring Golf Club in Normal on Oct. 14 and 15. Senior Nicholas Huggins (77-75-152, tied for eighth), junior Jimmy Morton (76-77-153, tied for 11th), sophomore Peter Thayer (75-88-163, tied for 50th) and senior Henry Pierce (84-89-173, tied for 87th) contributed to a 309 total in the first round at state. In the second round, Huggins, Morton, sophomore Austin Velazquez (9184-175, tied for 95th) and senior Sean Regan (81-85-166, tied for 61st) counted as Marmion carded a 321 for a 630 total that was three strokes clear of thirdplace Vernon Hills.

St. Charles East girls

The Saints placed 12th in the Class 3A state tourney with a two-day total of 666. Junior Nicole Jordan (79-82-161, tied for 58th) led the way for East. Senior Rose Bundy (83-81-164, 64th place), junior Riley Sullivan (85-85-170, tied for 76th) and senior Kacie Gaffney (85-86171, tied for 80th) also had their scores count in both rounds of the tourney. Junior Grace Westerhoff (89-96-185, 102nd) and senior Breanna Sheehan (95-103-198, 107th) also played at state for East.

That’s more like it. After placing 12th as a team with a 686 score at the Class 3A state tournament last year, Geneva made a big jump up this time around, shooting a 625 team score and finishing in a tie

St. Charles North’s Lucas Segobiano makes a one-handed catch in front of Geneva defensive back Troy Tams on Oct. 14 during a game at Geneva. Segobiano’s catch set up North’s first touchdown in a 30-3 win.

Geneva quarterback Kyle Evert (left) and St. Charles North’s Henry Kellogg go after a loose ball that led to a St. Charles North safety during a game at Geneva on Oct. 14. The North Stars won 30-3 and eliminated the Vikings from postseason consideration. Of the North Stars’ eight games, six have seen opponents score three points or less, including the Oct. 14 effort against Geneva (3-5, 2-4). Another big test awaits when North travels to meet Batavia (7-1, 5-1) in the regular-season finale for both teams. Pomazak felt that senior middle linebacker Jack Wolf, who had not seen much responsibility as a junior, had the ability to take over the

defensive captain duties. Wolf has thrived as a leader on that side of the ball. “It’s something I like to have on my shoulders,” Wolf said of the play-calling duties. “It’s fun to make sure we’re all where we need to be. We have done a great job executing this year. There were holes to be filled last year and I think we just have done a great job, all 11 guys, communicating and figuring out where we need to

be in every situation.” Segobiano was involved in some of what he called “expected” physical play that resulted in seven personal foul penalties being issued in the second half alone between both teams. The junior running back finished with 118 total yards, 110 of which came through the air. Mettetal was able to escape the pocket several times and make plays, and it was Segobiano’s one-handed grab that set up Lins’ score early in the first quarter. Both Mettetal and Segobiano praised the defensive effort, saying it makes their jobs much easier on offense when the defense plays so strong. “It takes a lot of the pressure off, you know,” said Mettetal, who finished with 174 passing yards and a rushing touchdown. “We know if we make a mistake the defense is going to have our backs. It’s a good feeling and I feel like the offense knows that and has made plays as well. We’re clicking in all phases right now and we like where we are heading to Batavia next week.” The end of this season for Geneva coach Rob Wicinski will be a bit different after the Oct. 14 loss eliminated the Vikings

St., Aurora n RECORDS: GHS 3-5; WA 8-0 n OUTLOOK: The Vikings are

out of the postseason and the Blackhawks are in, but Geneva can still influence the playoffs as a win in this one would affect West Aurora’s playoff seeding. from playoff contention for just the second time in 13 seasons. Wicinski, in his 18th year at the helm of the Vikings program, knew his team needed strong execution against the North Stars to keep its season alive. “It’s the same demons we’ve been fighting all year,” Wicinski said. “Fighting ourselves, fighting our assignments, fighting the turnover battle. … I always tell them you can’t play against two teams [yourself and your opponent]. ... Against a good team, it’s tough. We could have rolled up and called it quits a long time ago, but the kids keep coming to practice hard every day and that’s all you can ask for as a coach.” Arni led Geneva with 82 rushing yards, while Evert threw for 118 on 13-of-25 passing. The Vikings’ offense was held to just 198 yards of total offense.

GENEVA – The St. Charles North defense had allowed just 40 total points in seven games entering play on the road against Geneva on Oct. 14. Though Geneva needed to win its final two games of the regular season to give itself a chance at a playoff berth, the Vikings still presented one of the tougher offenses the North Stars had seen up until this point in the season. North once again proved difficult to solve on the defensive side of the football as the Vikings mustered a field goal as their only points in a 30-3 North victory. North remains one game back in the Upstate Eight River race. Though it appears that St. Charles East will finish the regular season with a perfect 9-0 record – and capture the UER title – the North Stars have higher aspirations in mind that include a deep postseason run. “We think this is our year,” said North junior Lucas Segobiano, who plays on both sides of the ball. “We’ve had a great year so far and expect to keep that going. We’re really locked in [defensively] and are so focused, which is making things come a lot easier.” The defense made its impact early after North quarterback Zach Mettetal was intercepted on the North Stars’ game-opening drive. Geneva’s third offensive snap was over the head of quarterback Kyle Evert and pounced on by running back Lance Arni in the end zone for a safety. The ensuing free kick gave the North Stars (7-1, 5-1 UER) great field position, which they capitalized on with a 14-yard run by Eric Lins for an early 9-0 lead. Segobiano added a 4-yard score on the ground on the third play of the second quarter to open up a 16-0 lead. “To start off, our defensive coordinator Rick Magsamen and [defensive line coach] Dan Meyo have done just a fantastic job of preparing the kids,” North coach Rob Pomazak said. “Everyone we put out there knows their roles extremely well. It’s never perfect out there, but these kids have a willingness and ability to learn and get better.”

KANE COUNTY PREPS Passion for golf shows ATHLETE OF THE WEEK with BC’s Joe Sherman LUCAS ATHLETE OF THE MONTH

SEGOBIANO St. Charles North Junior | Football Why Segobiano was selected: Segobiano caught six passes for 100 yards while also rushing for a 4-yard score in St. Charles North’s 30-3 win Oct. 14 against Geneva. St. Charles North junior Lucas Segobiano did a little bit of everything for the North Stars in their game against Geneva. Though he rushed the ball four times and made some timely tackles and big hits on defense, his most important contribution came in the passing game. Segobiano, the St. Charles Bank & Trust Athlete of the Week, caught six passes for 110 yards. The junior spoke with Kane County Chronicle correspondent Chris Casey to discuss the North Stars’ win, the team’s strong defense and more. An edited transcript follows: Casey: What has been the key to the defense that has only allowed 43 points through eight games (5.4 per game)? Segobiano: Well, first off, we returned

a good amount of starters in the box, which is nice. But I think the biggest thing is that we just cleaned things up. We had a lot of miscues last year, but this year we are focused, totally locked in and know what we’re doing, so things have come a lot easier. Casey: When the game gets physical like it did against Geneva, is there an extra effort to make sure to not let that take away from the game? Segobiano: We knew coming in that it would be chippy because we’re all rivals in these games. Plus, Geneva was playing for their season, so we knew it was going to be like that. But I think after the second or third personal foul, [defensive coordinator Dan Meyo] called us over and composed all of us.

jrossi@shawmedia.com BURLINGTON – The 2015 Class 2A state golf tournament was hardly a highlight for Joe Sherman. The Burlington Central senior and Kane County Chronicle September Athlete of the Month sponsored by St. Charles Toyota fared much better in 2016. After carding a pair of 87s for a 174 total that was good for a tie for 84th place last year, Sherman went 75-79 on Oct. 14 and 15 for a 154 score and a tie for 14th place in Class 2A, by far his best showing in his four trips to state. “I really wanted to make a better history down there,” Sherman said. “Last year I wanted to put together solid rounds on both days but I didn’t. I got off to a rough start [this year] and in the first round on [Oct. 14] I went up to my coach and said, ‘I’m kind of tired of playing poorly down here,’ and I decided what do I have to lose? “I didn’t want to come out and do what I had done the last three years at state, which was struggle and not play up to my ability.” After carding five bogeys, including two doubles on the front nine in the first round, Sherman had three birdies during a bogey-free back nine as he moved into a tie for eighth place. Similarly, he had six bogeys (one double) on the front nine Oct. 15 before carding a pair of birdies over the course of the final six holes to finish strong in front of a sizable cheering section. “It felt awesome, especially with the support of my team, family and friends out there with me,” Sherman said.

Sherman, a four-time state qualifier who finished 83rd at state as a freshman and 55th as a sophomore, said that not much came easy in his final state tourney, but he was pleased to fight his way to a solid score. “I hit quite a few good tee shots over the two days, but mostly it was a grind,” he said. “It was kind of a mental edge. I had the belief I could put my round back together and believed that even when I wasn’t sharp that I could come back.” Solid wedge play on the back nine both rounds helped Sherman post scores more to his liking and cap off what was a pretty special senior season. “I was really pleased with the way I played throughout the year,” Sherman said. “Our season goal was for the team to make it to state as a whole and I really believe we had the potential to do it if we all played our best golf on the same day. “We won conference and got out of the regional as a team and had a lot of momentum in the postseason. We just weren’t able to take that final step.” Sherman is still sorting out his college destination and plans to reach out to college coaches about the possibility of continuing his career at the next level. Whether or not he plays for a college team, Sherman has no intention of putting down his clubs any time soon. He’s been playing since he was eight years old and plans to emulate the golf career of his grandfather. “My grandpa is near 80 and he’s still golfing,” Sherman said. “My dad got me and my two brothers into golf, and I never really looked back. I tried other sports, but golf is my passion.”

Continued from page 34 Outlook: To get ready for what they hope is an extended playoff run, the Vikings have played in some of the top tournaments in the state – at Wheaton Warrenville South, St. Charles East and the Lyons Township invite Oct. 21 and 22. “We want to be playing competitive matches throughout the season to try and prepare for the postseason run,” head coach Annie Seitelman said. In Ally Barrett and Grace Loberg, Geneva has two hitters capable of taking over a match. Ally Mullen adds depth to the attack, and setter Mikayla Lanasa has had the offense running in high gear all season. If Geneva wins the playoff opener, it would face either No. 8 Waubonsie Valley or No. 9 St. Charles North in the regional final Oct. 27. The Vikings topped both teams earlier in the season.

Rosary

Class: 3A Regional: Aurora Central Catholic Sectional: Montini Sectional seed: No. 2 First match: 5:30 p.m. Oct. 25 vs. No. 15 Noble Street-Golder/No. 18 Noble Street-UIC

Outlook: The Royals spent plenty of time this season playing against Class 4A schools and didn’t shy away from large-class heavyweights Geneva, Mother McAuley and St. Francis. That experience coupled with a talented roster should bode well for Rosary in the postseason. Rosary should have little to no trouble winning its playoff opener and moving on to the regional final Oct. 27, where it would face either No. 6 seed Aurora Central Catholic or No. 10 Wheaton Academy.

them in the postseason. East will be favored to win its playoff opener Oct. 25. That would earn a berth in the regional final Oct. 27, where No. 5 Neuqua Valley likely would be the opponent. The Saints lost 25-17, 25-22 against the Wildcats during the regular season.

St. Charles North

St. Charles East

Class: 4A Regional: St. Charles North Sectional: Geneva Sectional seed: No. 9 First match: 6:30 p.m. Oct. 25 vs. No. 8 Waubonsie Valley

Outlook: As usual, the Saints played a challenging nonconference schedule that included Benet, Wheaton North and Neuqua Valley plus tough tournaments at Conant (first place), Mother McAuley preview (first), their own Mizuno Cup and Glenbard East. Megan Schildmeyer and Mikaela Mosquera were all-tournament at the Mizuno Cup, and the Saints possess roster depth that should help

Outlook: The North Stars’ youth led to some frustrating losses early in the season, though many of those early losses came against quality teams including Geneva, Sandburg and Rosary. North has been much more consistent coming down the stretch this season. “We aren’t doing that as much and are putting ourselves in better positions to win by not allowing opponents to score long runs on us,” head coach Lindsey Hawkins said. Junior Abby Graham has been a team leader from the get-go, and lately sophomores Gigi Crescenzo and Katie Lanz and juniors Amanda Parker and Lauren Caprini have

Outlook: The Spartans have a new coach in Lisa Ston, but expectations remain the same: Put the pieces together and make a strong postseason run that culminates in a state finals berth. Becca Fernandez, the defensive leader last year; Delaney Malloy and Kamryn Malloy, key attackers last year; and seven other players who made the trip to state last season returned this season and are ready for another long playoff run. “All of our returning players know what it takes to be successful and our underclassmen are rising to the challenge,” Ston said.

Staffers work the line at Just Kabobs in St. Charles, where food is prepared fresh on the grill.

The chicken kabob plate at Just Kabobs in St. Charles is the restaurant’s top-selling item. Just Kabobs on Route 64 in St. Charles has a spacious dining room and drive-thru service. Another popular dish stars a colorful array of vegetables. “Everybody loves our grilled veggies,” Symeonides said. “Some don’t want starch like rice and potato, and get skewers and veggies – they go for an … alternative.” Deliveries are offered in a

wide area using a custom-made truck design with both an oven on board to keep everything at the proper temperature and refrigeration for items like salad. Symeonides said their catering is used regularly for staff at area hospitals and similar settings.

Key to a restaurant’s success is consistency, he said. The staff sticks to the recipes he developed, for example, precisely measuring the amounts of water, spices, butter and

chicken broth for the rice pilaf. “We don’t guess when we do stuff,” he said. “That’s a big plus when you do big volume. You have to be consistent.” Just Kabobs is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday at 1825 W. Main St. (Route 64). For information, visit justkabobs.com or call 630-4433400.

ST. CHARLES – Much like the entree Just Kabobs is named after, the restaurant’s concept has sizzled into tasty success for St. Charles restaurateur John Symeonides. “I’ve been doing restaurants for 40 years,” Symeonides said of his lengthy experience in the industry. “I always wanted to do this concept.” He said after running four large restaurants, he finally was able to give his idea a shot and found it was a hit. Just Kabobs celebrated its seventh anniversary last month on Route 64 in St. Charles, a short distance east of Randall Road. It offers an attractive, casual space for dining, and provides carryout and delivery, as well as drive-thru convenience – plus a pleasing price point. Because of the speed of the staff, hungry diners find immediate gratification. An array of ingredients is laid out before patrons who tell the staffers their choices among the options and accompaniments as they move down the row. Behind them, cooks run the grill. “People love it,” Symeonides said. “It’s healthy [and] they see their food being prepared in front of them. Anything we do in this place is fresh. We prepare everything on a daily basis from the meat to the vegetables. We do not use anything frozen [except] the fries.” Because of the smaller-sized kitchen, the only pre-prepared items include baklava dessert, gyro meat, pita and spinach pie. The kabobs offer a choice of beef, pork, chicken and shrimp that is marinated in-house the day before. He said shrimp is one of the big movers. Another favorite is the whole rotisserie chicken for $7.95, offered with herb flavoring or barbecue sauce. It’s also available by the half. “It’s real good; we sell a lot of them,” he said, noting the top seller is the chicken kabob plate. The plate features two chicken skewers and generous portions of rice pilaf, green salad, pita and roasted potato wedges.

Mauricio Sarmiento, Brooke McGehee, Katie Mitchell, John Frankenthal, Jimmy Knapp, Steve Foran, Karen Brhel, Mason Absher, Carole Ruppert, Jami Johnson, Krystal Perez, Autumn Burns, Peggy Condon and Chris Schmal are part of the cast of “Offed at the Bake Off,” which will be performed Oct. 20 to 23 at Playhouse 38 in Geneva.

‘Offed at the Bake Off’ is ‘a fun show, very campy’ By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Geneva Park District’s Playhouse 38 will offer its third annual murder mystery, “Offed at the Bake Off,” from Oct. 20 to 23, a comedy with audience participation in figuring out the whodunit. “Offed at the Bake Off” takes place in 1955 on a stormy evening before the 33rd annual Knotting Bake-Off, brought to you by sponsors J&J Toothpaste. The contestants have gathered at the Knotting Inn at the Jersey Shore, each hoping that their perfectly crafted baked good will win the coveted blue ribbon. “It’s a fun show, very campy,” said Autumn Burns of Geneva, who plays Marjorie Margarine. “It has all kinds of characters who could have done it, might have done it.” Her character has won the blue ribbon every year since it started, so with 32 blue ribbons, Marjorie Margarine is very invested in winning the contest, Burns said. The show also features audience participation in trying to figure out who the killer is, she said. “There will be a chance for members to ask questions based on what they’ve seen, and we have to do

improv and stay in character,” Burns said. “It’s a little nerve-racking for those not used to improv, but it makes for some funny moments.” Geneva resident John Frankenthal plays the part of Clyde Chesterfield, proprietor of the Knotting Inn. “The audience will be asked to provide questions for folks in the play they believe are suspect,” Frankenthal said. “At the end of the play, they are asked to submit sheets identifying who they think the murderer is.” This is Frankenthal’s third murder mystery and seventh production with Playhouse 38. “I have been the hero, and I’ve been the killer,” Frankenthal said. But he would not reveal more than that, so as not to spoil the play for patrons. Directed by Lisa Pivaronas, performances will be at 7 p.m. Oct. 20, 21 and 22, and at 5 p.m. Oct. 23 at Playhouse 38, 321 Stevens St., Suite P, Geneva. Tickets are $15 in advance at Sunset Community Center, 710 Western Ave., or $20 at the door. Concessions, including beer and wine, will be available for purchase. “Offed at the Bake Off” was written by Matt Steele and Mike Steele and produced by special arrangement with Eldridge Publishing Co.

Are those pumpkins on a stick? If you’ve browsed the stalls at a local farmers market lately, you’ve likely noticed bunches of tiny pumpkins on sticks arranged into artful bouquets next to the hay bales, gourds and apple cider doughnuts. Cute and quirky, these little stalks look more like something Tim Burton dreamed up than anything that might be found in our backyard gardens. Are they even real? Known variously as pumpkins on a stick, a pumpkin tree and pumpkin bush, these unusual looking branches are actually a type of annual ornamental eggplant, Solanum integrifolium, in botanical terms. Native to southeast Asia, the diminutive fruit is part of a plant that can grow three to four feet in height with large, broad leaves. Typically grown from seeds, though growing from cuttings is possible as well, Solanum integrifolium can be directly sown into the garden in spring or started indoors and transplanted outside after danger of frost has passed. For best results, grow ornamental eggplant in rich, well-drained soil, and work in some compost prior to planting. Choose a site with full sun to part shade, and space plants about 3 feet apart to provide plenty of room for them to spread out. After planting, water regularly, fertilize and add mulch to retain moisture in the soil and keep weeds at bay. By mid-summer, you will start to notice tiny flower clusters on the thorny stems, followed by the little green fruits that ripen to deep

LEARNING TO GROW Sarah Marcheschi reddish-orange as the season progresses. At this point, plants can be staked to prevent stems from breaking under the weight of heavy fruit. To harvest ornamental eggplants, fruit should be picked once it has turned reddish-orange, and it can be used in a variety of dishes in the kitchen. Or, and perhaps more popularly in the Midwestern autumn months, stalks can be harvested for use in seasonal floral arrangements and decorative displays. Once the fruit ripens and turns color, cut stems near the ground and remove the leaves. Then dry them or use in fresh bouquets with other flowers. They make a fun addition to Halloween décor. (Kids love them, but watch out for the thorns!) And they are the perfect focal point for unique fall centerpieces.

‘Sister Act’ takes the stage in Sugar Grove KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE editorial@kcchronicle.com SUGAR GROVE – Fox Country Players, in partnership with Waubonsee Community College’s Community Education program, performed “Sister Act” at Waubonsee’s Sugar Grove campus auditorium Oct. 14 to 16, according to a news release. The musical comedy is based on the hit 1992 movie by the same name and features music by Tony- and Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, the release stated, noting that the musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Fox Country Players, founded in 1979, is a community theater group based out of Yorkville that is dedicated to excellence in theater education and performance in the Fox Valley community, the release stated. Director Anna Marie Ahonen stated in the release that the popularity of the movie helped draw cast and crew members from far and wide, which is unique for the local theater group. “One of the most unique things is that we have people from all over,” Ahonen stated in the release. “Our leading lady is from the south side of Chicago, and others are from as far east as Park Forest and Oak Park.

And I’d say that 95 percent of the cast has seen the movie at some point,” she said. Ahonen stated in the release that one of her favorite things about directing community theater is watching generations interact on stage together. The cast includes 36 members – with the youngest being a junior in high school and several others being in their 60s. There are 10 crew members, Ahonen stated in the release. “We also have a few families who are on stage together,” she stated.

SPICY PORK STEW WITH BUTTERNUT SQUASH AND ROASTED TOMATILLO SALSA Serves 6 to 8 – Makes about 3 quarts For pork: 2 teaspoons coriander seeds 2 teaspoons fennel seeds 2 teaspoons cumin seeds 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper 3 pounds cubed boneless pork shoulder (from a 3 1/2-pound pork shoulder, trimmed of fat and cut into 1 1/2- to 2-inch cubes) For stew: 1 1/4 pounds butternut squash (or another winter squash, such as kabocha or acorn), peeled, seeds removed and cut into 1 1/2- inch cubes (about 3 cups) 2 bunches collard greens. 6 tablespoons olive oil 1-3/4 teaspoons kosher salt 1 medium yellow Spanish onion, peeled, root and trimmed and discarded and cut into 1/2-inch dice (about 2 cups) 3 celery stalks, sliced 1/2 inch thick on an extreme bias (about 1 heaping cup) 1 cup dry white wine 3 cups chicken stock or sodium-free store-bought stock), or as needed 1 bunch fresh cilantro 2 Arbol chile pods 2 bay leaves (preferably fresh) Roasted tomatillo salsa (homemade or store-bought)

• CALENDAR

To prepare pork, roast coriander, fennel and cumin seeds in small sauté pan over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes, until seeds are fragrant and golden brown, shaking pan often so they don’t burn. Transfer seeds to plate to cool to room temperature; grind seeds in spice grinder or use mortar and pestle and transfer to small bowl. Add salt, black pepper and cayenne and stir to combine. Put pork in a large bowl. Sprinkle with spice mixture, toss gently and massage spices into pork with your hands to coat pieces evenly. Set aside for pork to come to room temperature – while you prepare rest of ingredients or for up to two hours. To make stew, adjust oven racks so none are near oven floor; you will be putting baking sheet directly on oven floor. If you are using electric oven or another oven where you can’t put anything on floor, adjust oven racks so that one is closest to floor and put pizza stone on it, if you have one. Preheat oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Put squash cubes on large baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and toss to coat squash. Spread squash out into single layer. Put baking sheet on oven floor or lowest rack and roast squash until it is fork-tender and caramelized around edges, 18 to 22 minutes, rotating baking sheet from front to back once and shaking it halfway through the cooking time so squash browns evenly. (When cooking vegetables on oven floor as you do in this recipe, a lot of steam is produced from water released as a result

of vegetables cooking so quickly, so just be careful of steam that will arise when you open oven door.) Remove squash from oven. (If you are making stew in advance, cook squash the same day you are serving stew.) Decrease oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Pull collard leaves from ribs. Trim and discard very ends of ribs and slice ribs 1/2 inch thick on extreme bias. Tear collard leaves into 3-inch pieces. Pour 2 tablespoons of oil into large Dutch oven or other high-sided, heavy-bottomed pot, and heat oil over medium-high heat until it slides easily in pan and oil around edges of pot just begins to smoke, 2 to 3 minutes. Add half of pork, increase heat to high and sear pork for 6 to 8 minutes, turning pieces to brown all sides. Remove pork chunks with tongs as they are done and put them on baking sheet. When you have removed all of pork, add remaining 2 tablespoons oil and heat until it begins to smoke around edges of pan. Add remaining pork and sear it in same way as you did first batch. Remove second batch of pork from pot and add it to first batch. Reduce heat to medium-high and add collard green stems, onion and celery. Season vegetables with 1 teaspoon of remaining salt and cook them, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, until collard stems and onion are tender. Add white wine and cook it over high heat until it has reduced by half, about 2 minutes. Add collard leaves and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir to combine leaves with rest of ingredients and cook for about 2

minutes, until leaves are wilted. Return pork, including any juices that have collected on the baking sheet it was resting on, to pot. Add 3 cups chicken stock, or enough to come just to top of pork, with some of top edges of pork peeking out of stock. Add cilantro bunch, chile pods and bay leaves and bring stock to boil over high heat. Turn off heat. Put lid on pot or cover pot with heavy-duty aluminum foil and put stew in oven to cook until pork is fall-apart tender, about 1-1/2 hours. Remove stew from oven. (The stew can be made to this point, up to three days in advance. Cool to room temperature and refrigerate, covered, until you’re ready to finish and serve.) Increase oven temperature to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove lid or foil from pot, add butternut squash and gently stir to distribute squash throughout stew. Return stew to oven, uncovered, and cook for about 10 minutes, until squash is warmed through and stew has a slightly browned, glazed look. Remove stew from oven. Fish out and discard chile pods, bay leaves and cilantro. Set stew aside to rest for at least 15 minutes and up to several hours before serving. Just before serving, bring stew to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium, stir in salsa and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, until stew is a thick, saucy consistency. Serve stew on stovetop in pot it was cooked in with long ladle and stack of bowls so guests can gather in kitchen and serve themselves. You know, the kitchen is where they want to be anyway.

KANE WEEKEND |

Veterans Day, Nov. 11, in the school’s auditorium at 6:30 p.m., with veterans invited at 5:30 p.m. for refreshments; the Veteran Honor Show at the Arcada Theatre on Nov. 9; and the art council’s Pop Up Arts program, whose theme is “From Sea to Shining Sea,” with an opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Nov. 5. Local veterans groups also have activities scheduled for Veterans Day. The Arcada’s Ron Onesti extends an invitation to the community to be his guest at the Veteran Honor Show and help show respect and admiration for the service of veterans. Veterans and a guest are invited to a pre-show reception just for them in the recently opened Club Arcada. Tickets for both the reception and the concert are free and will be available soon, the release stated. Veteran Honor Show guests and art gallery visitors will have the opportunity to watch a special film compiled from videos taken by St. Charles East High School’s Class of 2017 for a Library of Congress project, interviewing veterans about their stories of service. East graduate Maria Kantak, along with the Class of 2017 interview project group and faculty adviser Neil Currie, are creating a film that condenses hours and hours of individual interviews into a more accessible video montage, according to the release. The theme of the gallery exhibit is “From Sea to Shining Sea.” Entries for the gallery include any style or medium of visual art, or video, whose subject is people, places or things anywhere in America. The pop-up gallery will be in the former Clancy Law Building, 7 S. Second Ave. A theater room for the videos and extended gallery show running through Nov. 27 will be housed there. The council expressed thanks to Wendell Clancy for donating the use of the building, formerly the Idle House Vaudeville Theater, and to Brian Henry of ReMax for his assistance. Details on all the activities taking shape will be available on the art council’s website at StCharlesArtsCouncil. org and Facebook, plus the Arcada website. The arts council is a nonprofit organization staffed entirely by volunteers. For more information on the council, contact the SCAC at 630-4433794 or info@StCharlesArtsCouncil. org.

What to expect from ‘frozen shoulder’ Dear Dr. K: What exactly is a frozen shoul-

der and can I do anything to speed up the healing process? Dear Reader: Everyday, temporary shoulder aches and stiffness are common. Frozen shoulder is different. The shoulder starts to ache, particularly when you move it. Lifting a pan from the stovetop, brushing your hair, scratching your back – they all hurt. So you move your shoulder less. The pain and mobility become substantially worse over time. The condition usually affects just one shoulder. Pain and loss of mobility of a shoulder can be caused by other conditions, too. Arthritis of the shoulder or an infection in the shoulder joint, for example, can cause similar symptoms. What is frozen shoulder? The bones, ligaments, and tendons that make up your shoulder joint are wrapped in a capsule of connective tissue. Frozen shoulder occurs when this capsule thickens and becomes inflamed. The inflammation and thickening of the shoulder capsule often results from shoulder injury or surgery. A common type of shoulder injury that can lead to frozen shoulder is a tear in the rotator cuff. Your risk also increases if you have any of several other underlying medical conditions. Examples include diabetes, various autoimmune diseases, or conditions that cause you to use the shoulder less, such as a stroke or Parkinson’s disease. The trademark symptoms include pain and worsening stiffness. At first, the shoulder is painful, but range of motion is still good. As the condition progresses, range of motion begins to decrease. By the time the shoulder eventually becomes “frozen,” much of the pain has resolved, but you have difficulty moving your shoulder at all. The good news is that frozen shoulder

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff resolves on its own -- but at a glacial pace. The entire cycle from early symptoms to recovery can last from nine months to two years. Frozen shoulder has three stages: freezing, frozen and thawing. Here are some things you can do at each stage to move your recovery along, or at least ease discomfort. Freezing. This is the slow, gradual buildup of pain and stiffness. Over time, you notice the shoulder losing more of its range of motion as the capsule becomes thicker. During this period, the inflamed shoulder can be quite painful. Occasional steroid injections can help ease the discomfort, but may not speed recovery. Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) and ibuprofen (Advil), also can help. Frozen. The pain begins to lessen, but your range of motion is the most limited. It is still hard to lift your arm overhead. And you often have difficulty with everyday movements, like dressing or reaching into your back pocket. In some cases, arthroscopic surgery may help loosen the joint capsule so it can move more freely. Thawing. Stiffness goes away as the shoulder begins to heal. This is when you begin stretching exercises and formal therapy to help restore flexibility and range of motion. The good news? Once your shoulder heals, frozen shoulder seldom returns.

Dr. Wallace: I’m 17 and live with my divorced mother and her boyfriend who has been living in our house for the past seven months. My dad has remarried and is living about 50 miles away, but I haven’t seen him in a year. My huge problem is that my mother’s boyfriend has made sexual remarks about my shape. I told my mother that I didn’t appreciate this guy’s comments, but she told me that her boyfriend wasn’t serious. Last week, he came home from work early because he told his boss that he had an upset stomach. My mother was at work and this guy came into my room and tried to kiss me and his hands were all over me. That night, I told my mother what happened in front of the boyfriend. He denied it and told my mom that I just didn’t like him, and that I was trying to get my mother to get rid of him. My mom said that she didn’t know who to believe. I’ve called my dad and he said that he wanted me to move in with him and his new wife. I would like that except that I would have to change high schools, and I really don’t want to leave my friends. My best friend said that she talked to her parents about my problem and that I would be welcome to live with them. What should I do? My mom said I could move out if I wanted to. – Nameless, Kansas City, Missouri Nameless: Take the offer to

move in with your best friend and her family -- soon. That will give you time to decide if you want to move in with your father and his wife. Also, your mother might come to her senses and send this jerk packing, which will allow you to return home with her. Dr. Wallace: My parents are huggers. They hug at home or in public, and they enjoy wrapping

JUMBLE

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace their arms around each other and it doesn’t bother them no matter who is watching. They also hug me whenever I do something special. I enjoy their love for me when they hug me in our house, but I don’t appreciate being hugged in public. If I’m leaving on a trip or coming home after being away, I can understand them wanting to hug me, but not when they see me with my friends in a store. I’d like your opinion and I promise that I will make sure they read it, regardless of your opinion. – Nameless, Baltimore Nameless: A hug is a wonderful way to share mutual admiration and love. However, since being hugged at home by your parents brings you enjoyment, but hugs in public make you feel uncomfortable, it would be better, in my opinion, if your parents respected your request to limit the hugs to the privacy of your home. Hugs should not make a person feel uncomfortable. Dr. Wallace: I’m a 20-year-old young woman dating a guy who is a mature 18-year-old. My family and friends are constantly giving me a hard time because I’m two years older than him. I really like this guy, and I know he cares for me very much. He treats me like the lady that I am. We have a great time together, and I would even consider marrying him at a later time. My dad keeps telling me to find a more mature guy. My older sister constantly “reminds” me that I’m dating a boy, not a man. At times, my friends laugh at me and say that I’m “robbing the cradle.”

That’s because they are dating guys in their 20s and 30s. My boyfriend graduated from high school a few months ago. Please let me know your thoughts.

– Nameless, Salt Lake City, Utah Nameless: The two-year age

difference is insignificant. If you were 18 and Tommy happened to be 20, no one would say a word. In fact, people would consider you to be an ideal couple. As long as you enjoy being with this guy, continue dating him. Let the snide comments fall on deaf ears. Don’t defend your actions. You don’t have to. Just smile. Eventually, your family and friends will stop making remarks about his age and start asking you why you are smiling all the time. Dr. Wallace: I’m in the 9th grade and, like most girls my age, I’m interested in boys. My parents have told me that I’m not allowed to date until after I graduate from high school. They feel dating will get in the way of my studies. This is ridiculous. I am a superb student (I’ve gotten straight A’s for the past four years), and I would never allow my grades to slip. I care too much about my future. I’m Korean, and education is very important in our culture. My parents come from a culture where marriages are planned by the parents. They never dated at all. I could understand not letting me date until I’m 16, but after graduation is too restrictive. What are your thoughts? – Nameless,

Anaheim, California Nameless: Don’t force the issue

now. In two years, your mom and dad could have different thoughts on dating. When you reach 16, enlist the help of a trusted teacher or counselor to intercede on your behalf, if it’s necessary.

Dear Abby: I DEAR ABBY was “ghosted” by a woman I had Jeanne been in a long-disPhillips tance relationship with. It lasted four years until one day she just never responded again. We are both parents, both 30, so it’s hard for me to understand how someone could do this to a person you’ve had a history with and claim to love. It seems like a child’s reaction. I’m finding it hard to move past this, because I have no idea what happened. I feel blindsided. Could she have been hurt or died? I have no one to contact and no way to know. My question is, how does one go about moving past this, since it wasn’t a typical breakup? I would really appreciate your thoughts. – Can’t Go Forward Dear Can’t Go: What the person did was cowardly, but I’m sorry to say it isn’t that unusual these days. What IS unusual is that during the four years you were in a relationship, you never met any of her friends or family, and have no idea how to contact her. Are you absolutely sure she is who she claimed to be and not a catfisher? I agree that for someone to do what she did was childish. It was also brutal, and you may need counseling to help you get over it and learn to trust again. Dear Abby: My question may seem odd, but your advice would be appreciated. I have family who live in another city and have a medium-sized active dog. I have invited them to visit me in my newly built home, which has soft pine floors throughout. I mentioned to them that I would like to supply dog booties when they visit so their dog’s claws – and the grit that gets caught up between its toes – would not scratch my brand-new floors. We are a family who has always removed our shoes when we enter a home. I have tried inviting them numerous times over the past two years, but they always have an excuse why they can’t visit. Another family member told me that a comment was made that, “If we have to put booties on our dog and they want a showcase home, then it will be empty of us.” Am I being silly and too particular with my request and thereby causing ill feelings within the family? – Dog Booties Dear Dog Booties: Your request is neither picky nor “silly.” After paying top dollar for a new floor, I know I certainly wouldn’t want somebody’s pet scratching it up. A considerate guest would either comply or leave the dog at home. If they prefer not to accept your invitation, LET THEM. Dear Abby: I love to cook for my family. My granddaughter has now become a vegan. It has taken away my enjoyment for the fun meals we used to have. I can no longer cook for her, and it has changed the family dynamics. How can I cope with this without being angry? – Sad Down

Q: What is the value of a Fowler’s Cherry Smash syrup dispenser? It was used at a soda fountain counter. It’s about 17 inches tall. There’s a pump at the top and it reads “Always drink Fowler’s Cherry Smash - our nation’s beverage” on the front and back. There is a five cent symbol on both sides and three cherries with stems. Underneath the base it reads “John E. Fowler, Richmond Va., to be used by Cherry Smash only.” A: At one time, Cherry Smash was the second most popular soft drink in the United States. The name “Cherry Smash” was registered by John E. Fowler in 1909. The company started out in Richmond but moved to Rosslyn, Virginia, in 1920. After Prohibition ended in 1933, Fowler started the Dixie Brewing Corp., but no beer was ever brewed there. Cherry Smash was produced in Rosslyn until 1935. Your dispenser was made before that. Value about $2,000 to $3,000. *** Q: What can you tell me about Splashme dolls? I’ve seen these little seated figures online and would like to know who made them and how old they are. A: Splashme dolls were designed in 1917 by Genevieve Pfeffer (1890-1985), who used “Gene George” as her business name. The doll’s shape, with head in hands and elbows on knees, is based on Rose O’Neill’s Kewpie doll “The Thinker.” Splashme dolls also have similar large, sideglancing eyes. The dolls were made of bisque, composition or plaster of paris, had painted features and wore painted bathing suits and bathing shoes. They were first sold at beaches and vacation spots. Splashme dolls with a mohair wig or a scarf tied around painted hair were first made in 1918. Pfeffer also wrote books about the Splashme dolls. Splashme doll baby talcum containers, soap, party favors, postcards, and other items were made. The dolls sell today for about $35 to $50. *** Q: I have an unusual piece of furniture I use as a china cabinet. I think it was originally a display case for billiard cue sticks. The name on the drawers is “R. Rothschild’s Sons, Chicago, Cincinnati,” which I think was a manufacturer of poolroom supplies. Can you tell me something about this company? A: R. Rothschild founded his company in Cincinnati in 1866.

An auction catalog offered a “rare Kakiemon enameled porcelain plate” from the 18th century, but there was no further explanation of the age, history or design. What is the meaning of Kakiemon? Sakaida Kakiemon (1596-1666) was a potter who worked in Japan in the early 17th century. He and his family painted porcelain made in the town of Arita. Kakiemon wares were painted over the glaze using blue, red, green, yellow and black, and sometimes with gilding. The best work was done from 1680 to 1720. The ceramic was milky white with a smooth surface. Designs were asymmetrical and sparse, so there was a lot of white space as part of the design. Most patterns were based on flower arrangements, crooked tree branches, flowers like peonies or chrysanthemums, or flowering fruit trees. One famous pattern included quail. The Kakiemon style was so popular it was copied by many English and German factories, and 19th-century copies are very similar to early designs. A collector today may identify a plate as Kakiemon if it is in the style of the early pieces. But the description used by a museum also includes the name of the European maker. Meissen (German), Chantilly and Mennecy (French), and Chelsea, Bow and Worcester (English) all made early collectible copies. Collectors pay high prices for the 18th- and early 19th-century pieces. A nine-inch Meissen plate made about 1740 with a tiger, bamboo and flower decoration sold at a Brunk auction for $6,500. The pattern is copied today on modern dishes. Collectors should not be confused. The new dishes are very different in shape and glaze; only the decoration is old.

necessary to furnish a saloon complete” and one that sold furniture, carpet, stoves and other goods for the home. The company was making furniture for banks and offices by 1885. Rothschild’s Sons went bankrupt in 1897. *** Q: My mother used to have a crown-shaped bottle of Prince Matchabelli perfume on her dresser. I have an empty bottle. Is it worth anything? A: Prince Georges Matchabelli immigrated to the United States from Russia in 1921 with his wife Norina. She was an actress who used the stage name Maria Carmi. They opened an antiques store in New York City and he also made perfume for friends. He started the Prince Matchabelli Perfume Co. in 1926. Norina designed the crown-shape bottle. The first bottles were porcelain, later glass, made in Germany. Georges died in 1935 and the company was sold several times. It became part of Parfums de Coeur in 1993. They kept the crown as the bottle stopper. The bottle price depends on size, condition including label, and if there is perfume in it. It could be worth $50 to $550. *** Tip: Your cellphone’s camera is a magnifying glass. Focus on the marking you want to read and go in for a close-up. It is great for ceramics or prints, but a little difficult for metal because of glare. No need for a ruler and a magnifier anymore. Now you can go to a show with a dollar bill (a 6-inch

Everybody loves tomatoes, but they’re not the easiest vegetable to grow. They get diseases, leaves drop, fruits rot, and gardeners will always listen to a new tip for growing healthier ones with better yields. Tomatoes (and other crops as well) are often grown using black plastic as a mulch to suppress weeds and warm the soil in spring, but black plastic is hard to love. It’s expensive, it’s hard to dispose of ecologically, and it’s just plain ugly. Organic mulches such as hay or chopped leaves, on the other hand, can not only curb weeds and prevent soil erosion but also provide nutrition for the plants. As these materials decompose, worms, bacteria and other organisms incorporate them into the soil, improving its fertility, soil structure and water-holding capacity. You can even get the mulch for free, or at the minimal cost of seed, if you grow your own. This was the subject of a study by plant scientists at the Agricultural Research Service in Beltsville, Md. Now 25 years old, the study’s results still offer rewards for professional tomato

To cut the vetch in spring, a home gardener might use a string trimmer or hedge clippers, depending on the size of the plot. If you are concerned about vetch regrowth, you might cover the residue with a paper mulch to prevent re-sprouting. Hairy vetch seeds are available at feed stores and online. And while you’re Googling that, take a look at images of the plant; its name might suggest a scary Halloween costume, but, in fact, it sports beautiful lavender-blue flowers for you to – briefly – enjoy.

RELEASE DATE: 10/16/2016

Douglas Adams, in “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,” wrote, “Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist, but that’s just peanuts to space.” When you are declaring a bridge deal, you try to find the safest road to make your contract. However, even if you choose the one that is mathematically best, you might end up in a black hole, going down because you were unlucky. Still, it is amazing how in bridge columns, the right approach works! What should South do in four hearts after West cashes his two top spades, then shifts to the diamond jack? Although that South hand contains only 11 high-card points, it is well worth a one-level opening bid, with that excellent six-card suit, two aces and no rebid problem. South can see four losers: two spades and two diamonds. He has only nine top tricks: six hearts, one diamond and two clubs. He must play to establish a third club winner. But, because he will probably have to ruff two low clubs in his hand, he must be careful with his dummy entries. Declarer wins the third trick with his diamond ace and cashes the heart ace. But then he turns his attention to the clubs. He plays a club to the king, cashes the ace, ruffs a club high, leads a low heart to dummy’s nine, ruffs another club high, crosses to the heart king (drawing West’s last trump in the process), and discards a diamond on the winning club seven.
