Woman clarifies role in lawsuit

Says she did not serve sheriff candidate Zinke with subpoena, wasn’t in Ill. at time By KEVIN P. CRAVER

kcraver@shawmedia.com Sondra Matterness called the Northwest Herald on Wednesday to clear up her involvement in a lawsuit filed on her behalf against sheriff candidate Andrew Zinke: Her car was there, but she wasn’t. Attorney Robert Hanlon filed the

lawsuit Friday, alleging that Zinke illegally looked up the license plate of Matterness, who he describes in the lawsuit as “78 years of age with a bad hip,” after Zinke was served with a subpoena to give a deposition in a case in which Hanlon is the defendant. But the lawsuit’s wording does not identify who served the subpoe-

na on the night of Jan. 13. Matterness called Wednesday from Arizona to insist that she did not serve it and wasn’t even in Illinois at the time. She let her friend, who serves such notices, use her car. While she said she knew the lawsuit was going to be filed, she was surprised by the publicity it has received in local anti-Zinke blogs and

the media. Zinke, who is presently county undersheriff, is locked in a contentious Republican primary race with former Des Plaines Police Cmdr. Bill Prim to replace retiring Sheriff Keith Nygren. “I understood that none of this would come out in the paper,” Matterness said. The lawsuit alleges that Zinke

yelled and screamed in response to getting the subpoena at his Woodstock home, raced outside in his socks “in an indignant rage” to stand in front of Matterness’ car and take down her license plate before he “strutted back to his residence” and later ran Matterness’ plate.

CHICAGO – The four Republicans running for governor don’t completely agree on perhaps the biggest financial decision looming over Illinois residents’ pocketbooks – whether to extend the state’s temporary income tax hike. While none of the contenders are advocating increasing the income tax, two candidates Election – state Sen. Kirk Dillard and Central state Treasurer Dan RutherFollow the ford – have left local, state the door open to and national the possibility races at when the temNWHerald. porary hike expires next year. com/elecThe two othtion. ers – state Sen. Bill Brady and businessman Bruce Rauner – are more firmly saying no. None have extensively detailed how they’d make up for the expected revenue loss if the tax is allowed to expire. Illinois lawmakers passed a roughly 67 percent increase during the final hours of a 2011 legislative session with the pitch that it was temporary and would be used to fill a budget hole. Four years later, and with the state again facing the potential of dire budget cuts, the issue of whether to extend that increase when it sunsets in January nags both lawmakers who’ll begin voting on a budget soon and the candidates who want to run Illinois. The pocketbook issue could

RYSTAL LAKE – Marla Garrison has known for years the work outside the classroom can sometimes open more doors than the work inside it. Garrison, a biology instructor at McHenry County College, has offered students opportunities for conducting research in the field of microbiology outside of normal class work for four years. That one-on-one, independent research has led students to pursue doctorate degrees at prestigious schools such as the University of Michigan and the University of Illinois and work with world-class scientists at Georgia Tech. The success stories she has seen operating her own research pro-

Jon Vickery measures out penicillin, an antibiotic, at McHenry County College. gram is why she is excited to see McHenry County College encourage students across all disciplines to participate in undergraduate research projects by offering credit hours. “I think that the students that want to do that kind of research

want to delve deeper than what they can cover in a typical semester,” Garrison said. “In science fields, it opens students up to more than lab exercises that have already been tested. They come up with original research and experiments on things that have never been tested.” The Undergraduate Research Scholar Program at MCC is in its second year after a successful pilot program last year. The program requires students to develop an original research topic that will be studied, tested and examined throughout the semester under the guidance of a faculty sponsor. At the end of the semester, the student must present the research in a poster series forum, similar to a peer-reviewed journal article professors and academics would draft. The program is similar to a thesis program in graduate school. Evette Thompson, coordinator of career services at McHenry County

WOODSTOCK – Testimony at a sentencing hearing for Marcus J. Sabo revealed the former youth baseball coach bought alcohol for underage athletes and had sexually suggestive photos of players. Sabo, 41, was sentenced Wednesday to two years in prison after previously pleading guilty to 20 counts of possessing child p o r n o g r a p h y . Marcus J. The images of Sabo the local players did not meet the criteria for child pornography charges, and were not among those in the 60-count bill of indictment. As part of the plea deal accepted in February by McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather, the remaining 40 counts against Sabo were dropped. Sabo coached 15-year-old boys in the Crystal Lake Babe Ruth Baseball League. As soon as the charges were filed, his positions with the league were revoked and he was barred from having contact with the league or its athletes, the organization said. “When these allegations came out in March, the League immediately severed all ties,” said Bill Bligh, an attorney for the Babe Ruth organization. “It wasn’t innocent until proven guilty, they severed all ties.” Special Agent Dan Thomas with the Illinois State Police

Exodus of Illinois’ wealthy a cause for concern SPRINGFIELD – One of my favorite books is John Steinbeck’s “The Grapes of Wrath.” In that epic tome, farmers from across Oklahoma load up all of their earthy goods onto Model T Fords and flee the Dust Bowl for California in the midst of the Great Depression. It’s easy to see that great exodus along Route 66 as the face of migration from one state to another. And to be sure, that is one face of relocation. Poor folks still load up cars with what they own and seek out opportunity. I saw it all the time when I was a reporter in Las Vegas, families showing up with not much but their dreams and hopes of landing a well-paying job. But that isn’t the only face of migration. When corporate executives or well-heeled retirees move, it is done with professional movers. And you can often discern who the wealthiest of these households are by the amount of furniture and other belongings they have shipped. The Wall Street Journal recently looked at data from Allied Van Lines concerning where wealthy households

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Scott Reeder were moving to and from. The report found that Illinois and Pennsylvania have more wealthy households leaving than arriving. And California leads the nation for the net number of wealthy households migrating away. And states gaining the most? Florida and Texas. So what do East Coast, Midwest and West Coast states like Pennsylvania, Illinois and California have in common? All three are high-tax states, said Joseph Henchman, a vice president at the Tax Foundation. On the other hand, Florida and Texas are much lower tax states. “Illinois is particularly vulnerable to more out-migration because its neighbors – Wisconsin and Indiana – are busy lowering their taxes,” Henchman added. On the other hand, the Illinois Leg-

islature jacked up our income taxes by 67 percent back in 2011. This has hurt folks from all economic groups. And for folks who make their living making business decisions, it has created one more incentive to leave Illinois. While it’s easy to shrug off the rich guy across town leaving, there is good reason for all of us to be concerned. Have you ever worked for a business person poorer than yourself? Me neither. Even those working in the public sector need to remember where taxes come from to pay for their jobs. And yet, Illinois is consistently pursuing policies that are pushing these job creators to more hospitable business climates. Where those jobs go, poor and middle-class Illinoisans are sure to follow as well. This migration translates into real money, according to Travis Brown, author of the book “How Money Walks,” a project that measures where people are moving based on tax returns. “Illinois as a state lost $29.27 billion over the 18 years from 1992 to 2010,” Brown said.

During that period, only California and New York lost more income than Illinois, his study found. “That’s a loss of $185,000 per hour. We forecast that between 2010 and 2014 Illinois lost somewhere between $5.4 and $7 billion in adjusted gross income due to migration,” Brown said. Illinois is in that minority of states that continue to levy an estate tax. And increasingly estate planners are advising retired, successful Illinoisans to consider moving to a state without an estate tax so assets can be passed more easily from one generation to the next. That hurts all of us. When successful retirees leave, they are no longer spending money in the Land of Lincoln, paying taxes here or donating to Illinois charities. That equates to fewer jobs for the rest of us. And ultimately that is why all of us should be concerned.

Oberweis spends week before primary in Fla. The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Jim Oberweis is taking heat from his opponent for spending the final week before Tuesday’s primary in Florida. Oberweis, a dairy magnate from Sugar Grove who faces Downers Grove businessman Doug Truax in the race to take on U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, left

Illinois on Saturday, WMAQTV first reported. He plans to be at the condo he owns in Florida until Friday. In an emailed statement, Oberweis said he’s looking beyond Tuesday to the November election against Durbin. “It is certainly no secret that in a highly contested U.S. Senate race in one of America’s most populous states, I will be expected to travel quite

a bit over the next six months, mostly inside Illinois but occasionally outside Illinois, to

meet with contributors and to attend fundraising events,” Oberweis said. “I have currently traveled

to Florida for two reasons. First, to fulfill a promise to my wife to spend a few days with her in Florida for her birthday, and second, to raise money for my U.S. Senate race.” Truax, a West Point graduate and former Army Ranger who has never run for public office, said Oberweis’ actions show he’s unelectable. “We need a warrior to take on Durbin, not a timid snow-

bird,” Truax said. Oberweis has wider name recognition than Truax, thanks to the dairies located throughout Illinois that bear his family’s name and six previous bids for office – five of which were unsuccessful. He also is known for making some gaffes during those failed campaigns, including comments about “illegal aliens” and the Taliban.

8BRIEFS Report finds Ill. school finances worsening

SPRINGFIELD – An Illinois State Board of Education report released Wednesday shows more Illinois schools are in poor financial shape and borrowing money or dipping into reserves than previous years, a problem that could worsen as the state faces overall budget cuts next year. The annual review, which places school districts into four categories ranging from high financial strength to high risk, shows an overall downgrade in the financial position of the state’s districts. About 120 of Illinois’ 862 districts are in the two categories that indicate higher risk – an increase of nine from last year. And the problems are only expected to get worse as about 60 percent of school districts forecast they’ll have a deficit in the 2014 fiscal year, an increase of more than 10 percent the previous year. State education officials say the state has underfunded education for the past three years, causing the overall downgrade in financial strength.

Emergency workers respond Wednesday to the scene of an explosion and building collapse in the East Harlem neighborhood of New York. The explosion leveled an apartment building, and sent flames and billowing black smoke above the skyline.

3 killed in N.Y. building collapse By JAKE PEARSON and JONATHAN LEMIRE The Associated Press

NEW YORK – A gas leak triggered an earthshaking explosion that flattened two apartment buildings on Wednesday, killing at least three people, injuring more than 60 and leaving nine missing. A tenant said residents had complained repeatedly in recent weeks about “unbearable” gas smells. By evening, rescue workers finally began the search for victims amid the broken bricks, splintered wood and mangled metal after firefighters spent most of the day dousing the flames. Heavy equipment, including back hoes and a bulldozer, arrived to clear the mountain of debris where the two five-story East Harlem buildings stood. Flood lights were in place. Thermal imag-

ing cameras were at the ready to identify heat spots – bodies or pockets of fire. The recovery was facing hardship in the form of the weather, which was expected to drop into the 20s with rain. Some parts of the debris pile were inaccessible because of a sinkhole caused by a subsurface water main break, officials said. The fiery blast, on Park Avenue at 116th Street, not far from the edge of Central Park, erupted about 9:30 a.m., around 15 minutes after a neighboring resident reported smelling gas, authorities said. The Con Edison utility said it immediately sent workers to check out the report, but they didn’t arrive until it was too late. The explosion shattered windows a block away, rained debris onto elevated commuter railroad tracks close by,

cast a plume of smoke over the skyline and sent people running into the streets. “It felt like an earthquake had rattled my whole building,” said Waldemar Infante, a porter who was working in a basement nearby. “There were glass shards everywhere on the ground, and all the stores had their windows blown out.” Police said two women believed to be in their 40s were among the dead. Hunter College identified one as Griselde Camacho, a security officer who worked at the Silberman School of Social Work building. Hunter, in a statement on its website, said she had worked for the college since 2008. At least three of the injured were children; one, a 15-yearold boy, was reported in critical condition with burns, broken bones and internal

injuries. Most of the other victims’ injuries were minor and included cuts and scrapes. Fire officials said some people were unaccounted for but cautioned they may not have been in the buildings. A tenant in one of the destroyed buildings, Ruben Borrero, said residents had complained to the landlord about smelling gas as recently as Tuesday. A few weeks ago, Borrero said, city fire officials were called about the odor, which he said was so bad that a tenant on the top floor broke open the door to the roof for ventilation. “It was unbearable,” said Borrero, who lived in a second-floor apartment with his mother and sister, who were away at the time of the explosion. “You walk in the front door and you want to turn around and walk directly out.”

WASHINGTON – Bypassing Congress, President Barack Obama intends to order changes in overtime rules so employers would be required to pay millions more workers for the extra time they put in on the job. The rules, which would not likely take effect until 2015, are aimed at workers currently designated as supervisory employees but who are exempt from overtime because they get paid a salary of more than $455 a week. Obama plans to order his Labor Department to recommend regulations that would increase that salary threshold and change the definition of what constitutes a supervisor. Obama’s attention to overtime dovetails with his emphasis on correcting wage disparities, a theme that he has said will be central to the rest of his presidential term. It also serves his political ends during a midterm election year, giving him a populist issue along with his calls for a higher minimum wage and better pay for women.

8WORLD BRIEF Malaysia: No jet debris at spot shown on images

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – No signs of the missing Malaysian jetliner have been found at a spot where Chinese satellite images showed what might be debris, Malaysia’s civil aviation chief said Thursday, deflating the latest lead in the hunt. “There is nothing. We went there, there is nothing,” Azharuddin Abdul Rahman told

reporters in Kuala Lumpur. Vietnamese officials said the area had been “searched thoroughly” in recent days. The hunt for the Boeing 777 has been punctuated by false leads since it disappeared with 239 people aboard just hours after leaving Kuala Lumpur for Beijing early Saturday. The plane was heading over the South China Sea when it disappeared, but authorities believe it may have

turned back and headed into the Strait of Malacca or beyond. The location where Chinese images showed possible debris is not far from the last confirmed position of the plane between Malaysia and Vietnam. The images and coordinates were posted on the website of China’s State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense.

Original work important for students • RESEARCH

bia College in Chicago. Donald’s research project – “Defining Popularity in Genre Fiction” – investigated which genres translated into the most public popularity and the tools aspiring authors would need to craft successful stories within those genres. Between reading through professional journals and interviewing successful authors for her research, Donald still managed to juggle a full class load, part-time job and her responsibilities as president of the Writer’s Block creative writing club. Now she is searching for a scholarly journal to publish her final research.

Continued from page A1 College, said the program has strong potential to grow and provides experience colleges at the next level desire. “I connected with another college and they were very pleased to see a community college is doing work like this as well,” Thompson said. “Our hope is it will continue to grow. I already have more instructors very interested in sponsoring students.” Anne Donald is one student who believes the program will be a springboard to her goal of earning a degree in creative writing at Colum-

“I loved the independence of the program,” Donald said. “It wasn’t about sitting in a room with 20 other people and going through a prepared plan. You have to come up with everything.” Garrison said there are many other students with Donald’s passion for their subjects that she expects to take advantage of the program in coming years. “In art and theater, writing a play would be an original work,” Garrison said of the benefit the program has for all disciplines. “To showcase those talents and have a mentor in the process is invaluable. The earlier we start these things the better.”

Democrats warn of dire results if tax is cut in ’15 • TAX HIKE

Continued from page A1 be a deciding factor for some voters. Top Democrats, including Senate President John Cullerton, have started laying groundwork for an increase by predicting broad cuts and an estimated $1.6 billion revenue dip, which could result in teacher layoffs and other

drastic reductions. Meanwhile, Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn, who is seeking re-election, has not said whether he will push for an extension, saying only that it needs to be addressed this year. He is expected to lay out his view in his March 26 budget address. All four Republican rivals in the March 18 primary told The Associated Press in candidate questionnaires that they oppose the idea of another in-

crease. However, Dillard and Rutherford have been willing to discuss some form of extension as a possibility, given the state’s difficult financial condition, with Dillard recently softening his stance. Quinn’s Democratic primary challenger, activist Tio Hardiman of Hillside said he doesn’t want to raise the personal income tax, but could see an increase for some businesses.

Zinke lawyer says Hanlon lawsuit politically motivated • LAWSUIT

Continued from page A1 It is illegal to use the Law Enforcement Agencies Database System, also known as LEADS, for personal reasons. Two calls to Matterness for follow-up questions were not returned, but Hanlon called about 45 minutes later to tell the Northwest Herald to stop trying to contact his client. And while Hanlon’s phone call confirmed the caller was Matterness, he would not comment about the case or the identity of who in fact served Zinke. “I’m not going to discuss my case in the newspaper,” Hanlon said.

Attorney James Bishop, who Zinke has retained regarding Hanlon’s lawsuit, has no self-imposed prohibition. He said the lawsuit’s timing, substance and language – such as why Matterness’ bad hip is relevant if she wasn’t even there – is a clear-cut case of a frivolous lawsuit with a political end. “I believe this to be nothing more than Cook County politics, and it is certainly designed for the purpose of trying to embarrass Zinke just by associating him with 8-year-old litigation,” Bishop said. Hanlon’s lawsuit was part of a two-pronged attack launched last week by Prim supporters less than two

weeks before the March 18 primary. He filed it the day after State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi released a statement alleging that he has traced what he calls libelous comments about him posted on a local blog to Zinke’s campaign manager. Both items were promptly posted after their releases to Cal Skinner’s McHenry County Blog. Skinner, who opposes Zinke, retained Hanlon last year to defend him against an allegation by Zinke that an ethics complaint Skinner filed against him was frivolous. Hanlon, Bianchi and Bianchi’s campaign have donated to Prim and are actively help-

ing in his election efforts. Zinke is named by Hanlon as an “interested party” in the lawsuit for which he was summoned to give a deposition. Charles August, an organizer for the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150, sued Hanlon in 2006, alleging he libeled him in an article in another newspaper. The court sided with Hanlon, but the ruling was overturned last year on appeal. Zinke was added to the lawsuit’s file as a party of interest Jan. 15, two days after the summons, Bishop said. But Bishop, Zinke and at least one other witness the newspaper has talked to said Hanlon approached Zinke in October

at a police chief’s meeting in Marengo about serving him with a subpoena. Zinke said he told Hanlon to serve him at the courthouse and heard nothing until the January delivery to his home. Zinke admitted running the license plate, but said he did it for legitimate reasons in response to a “scary-looking lady dressed in all black” who said nothing, waved papers in his face and threw them at his feet. Both Zinke and his wife work in law enforcement. Matterness disagreed in her brief talk with the newspaper. “He should have never run a lead on my license plate,” she said.

But Bishop defended Zinke’s actions and said he was forced into it by a frivolous legal action. “[Zinke] was dragged into this ... in order for Hanlon to take Zinke’s deposition, and we believe all of that was spurious and politically motivated, because Andy has no connection with either of the parties,” Bishop said. Zinke’s campaign manager, Tamara DeModica, vehemently denies Bianchi’s accusation that she is the anonymous commenter he is pursuing in a defamation lawsuit.

Coach had photos of kids from team • COACH

Continued from page A1 said Thursday the photos of the players included one of a child’s buttocks, another of a child wearing only a jock strap, and one that he described as a shot from the thigh down of an unclothed boy standing on a baseball diamond with his Babe Ruth baseball uniform on the ground. Those images were found on Sabo’s camera, but prosecutors stopped short of saying the former coach took the photographs. Thomas also said text messages between Sabo and the players indicate that Sabo would fill alcohol orders for the boys. Other text messages Sabo sent to a player were overtly sexual and talked about masturbation and genitalia, prosecutors have said. The league had no knowledge of the photographs or text messages before Thursday’s sentencing hearing, Bligh said. There never were player or parent complaints

about Sabo. State police investigators found hundreds of images of child pornography in Sabo’s Crystal Lake home that were downloaded over a number of years, Thomas said. The images depicted young boys in sexually explicit or lewd positions. Sabo’s Internet history also revealed he had visited child pornography websites. As the allegations came to light, Sabo attempted suicide and was treated in mental health facilities, his attorney Assistant Public Defender Angelo Mourelatos said. Assistant State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally called Sabo an “overly cautious and unskilled predator” who was waiting for the right circumstances to act on his sexual urges and “to do what he wants to do with somebody’s kid.” Kenneally asked the judge to sentence Sabo to prison.

Mourelatos pointed out that a social worker found Sabo to have a low risk for further offenses and that he responded well to sex offender treatment. Mourelatos said Sabo was an appropriate candidate for community-based treatment, and cited Sabo’s limited criminal history – which, aside from traffic tickets, was a DUI charge from 1997. Mourelatos asked the judge for probation. But Prather said the time long had passed for Sabo to get treatment. In handing down her sentence, the judge said Sabo abused his position of trust within the baseball league. Sabo has been in custody of McHenry County Jail since August. He will receive credit for the time he’s served, and day for day credit, meaning he could be nearing a release date. He must register for life as a sex offender.

8WORLD BRIEF As ex-PM leaves, Libya risks inter-region conflict TRIPOLI, Libya – Libya’s ousted prime minister, Ali Zidan, fled to Europe after parliament voted him out, leaving behind a country that risks being torn apart as the fault line between its eastern and western regions broke open Wednesday to a degree unseen since the 2011 civil war that ousted longtime strongman Moammar Gadhafi. A western-based militia fighting in the name of parliament has launched an offensive against a militia in the east that has for months occupied most of Libya’s crucial oil facilities – seizing virtual control of the country’s most vital resource. This past week, it succeeded in exporting a tanker of oil from a port it holds in defiance of the central government. In response to the offensive other militias in the east are rallying to fight back. Eastern leaders have warned that unless Tripoli backs down they will seek outright independence for their region.

Newspaper candidate endorsements represent the majority of an editorial board. Sometimes there isn’t universal agreement. Such as in politics and life, there is compromise. There was no disagreement or compromise last spring and really nothing to discuss when we endorsed incumbent Hebron Village President Frank Beatty over challenger For the record John Jacobson. Here’s a paraThere was no disagreement graph we included or compromise last spring in our endorseand really nothing to discuss ment of Beatty: when we endorsed incumbent “Jacobson Hebron Village President Frank faces charges of Beatty over challenger John unlawful delivery Jacobson. of a controlled substance, a Class 1 felony, and unlawful possession of a controlled substance. McHenry County Sheriff’s deputies stopped Jacobson on Jan. 15 and said they found less than 3 grams of crack cocaine in his vehicle.” In spite of that, Jacobson won the village president election with 61 percent of the vote. Since being elected, Jacobson has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge based on that traffic stop and picked up new charges of driving under the influence just over the border in Wisconsin. Many Americans laugh at the antics of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. We doubt Hebron residents find it particularly funny. Trustees now describe a chaotic environment in village government. Most of the top staff have left, and so has a Hebron police officer who ticketed Jacobson for DUI a few years ago. He was fired after Jacobson took office. Obviously, Hebron voters wanted to get rid of Beatty. Just as likely, they were frustrated about high water bills that were the result of infrastructure improvements made in anticipation of new development that never came when the housing market crashed. Regardless, Jacobson, who was fired from his janitor position at McHenry County College for emailing pornography despite earlier warnings, among other things, was a poor choice for village president. Unless Jacobson resigns, or is convicted of a felony, it’s a decision Hebron will have to live with. In the interim, it’s time for individuals to step up and fill what is clearly a leadership void in the village. Hebron residents deserve better.

Leadership void in Hebron

Miller best understands

To the Editor: I have had the pleasure of knowing Glenda Miller for 14 of her 17 years working in the treasurer’s office. With my 14 years working for Nunda Township, it has given me the opportunity to be in direct contact with Glenda and the treasurer’s office. With Glenda working directly with the treasurer for over 17 years, she truly understands what the position entails. Glenda also has been an active citizen within McHenry County. In order to better serve McHenry County, I urge you to vote for Glenda Miller because of her direct knowledge and experience of the McHenry County Treasurer’s Office. Wendy Valzano McHenry

Border Patrol rightly restricts Crossing into the U.S. illegally is not a capital crime. Yet since 2010, some 20 people have been fatally shot by Border Patrol agents along the U.S.-Mexico border. The head of the Border Patrol has taken the correct and necessary step of making clear to his agents that using deadly force should be a last resort. On Friday, Chief Michael Fisher ordered agents not to step in front of moving vehicles in order to open fire, and not to shoot at fleeing vehicles. He also directed agents to seek cover or move away from rock throwers, and not to shoot unless in imminent danger. No doubt, agents should be able to protect themselves or the public. But it’s also clear that more intensive training is needed to make sure this reasonable policy is followed. The new rules bring the patrol more in line with the nation’s major law enforcement departments. The changes come after scrutiny from civil rights groups and the Mexican government, and follow eye-opening reports a week earlier by Tim Johnson of McClatchy’s foreign staff and by the Los Angeles Times. Johnson reported that in some of the border killings, there are serious questions whether deadly force was really required. Critics also said the patrol has resisted adopting safeguards on the use of lethal force and has weakened training standards, Johnson reported. The Los Angeles Times disclosed details of a report by independent law enforcement experts, who found that agents had deliberately stepped into the path of vehicles to justify shooting at drivers and had fired at rock throwers on the Mexican side of the border. U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which commissioned the report, sought to keep it under wraps, submitting only a watered down summary to congressional committees, the Times said. Until Friday, federal officials had refused to release the policy covering when agents are empowered to use deadly force. Those are troubling lapses of transparency and accountability for an agency that has grown dramatically in recent years, to some 21,700 agents. New Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson deserves praise for pushing the Border Patrol to issue the new use-of-force guidelines and to make them public. Securing the border is crucial. But the border can’t be a killing zone.

Zinke deserves your vote

To the Editor: I am the older brother of Andy Zinke. He is a family man with the highest integrity, morals and values. Looking out for other people is nothing new for him. He is smart and always has strived to continue his education in law enforcement. He is a great brother, father and son. I have much respect for him and what he has accomplished. He has worked in numerous assignments during his career and loved every one of them. As long as I can remember he wanted to be the sheriff. I know his friends and co-workers; they too are kind and professional people. My brother is a great man and deserves your vote. He will make a great sheriff. Alan G. Zinke Nixa, Mo.

Endorsement criticism

To the Editor: It hurts me that you endorse Bruce Rauner for the Republican candidacy for governor of the state of Illinois on the basis of his wanting term limits for state offices. We already have term limits; they are called elections. Also, the financial mess in which Illinois is in can be blamed on both parties, not only the Democrats. There has to be a willingness to work for the good of the people, not just for the good of the party. What political science courses did Bruce Rauner take in college? How much history does he know – of America and the world? What philosophy or social science or dreams does he know or have for our state? Choosing a candidate based on negatives is no way to run the state. Surely a newspaper like

yours can do better. Thank you. Donna Davis Woodstock

Best to come with Gonsiorek

To the Editor: Nancy Gonsiorek has served McHenry County well. I have been honored to support Nancy in her past candidacies to our school board, and I am thrilled to tell you that the best is yet to come because Nancy Gonsiorek, exemplary District 47 School Board member, is now our candidate for County Board District 3. Nancy knows her district and understands what is important to us: A fiscally responsible board that governs with good, old-fashioned common sense. As a community member, she understands the importance of our quality of life. As a Certified Public Account and trusted business adviser, Nancy knows how to manage our precious tax dollars. My family and I love our home in McHenry County, and with Nancy Gonsiorek representing us, the best is yet to come. Visit NancyForCountyBoard.com and help make Nancy our representative for County Board District 3. Mary Laurx Crystal Lake

Zinke offers thanks

To the Editor: As a member of the sheriff’s office, I have had the pleasure of meeting so many great people during the past 25 years. It is their willingness to volunteer in our community that helps to make this county great. Running for a political office gives you the opportunity to meet many hardworking and caring people who give of their time, talents and financial contributions. All of you deserve praise. I am so very proud of the over 400 men and women of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office. You’ll likely never hear about most of them. They took an oath as a deputy sheriff, correction officer or court security officer to protect and serve, and they do it well. Our civilian staff members do an outstanding job. To all of you who spend our days planning, preparing and responding to the unforeseen dangers that face this community, I say, “Thank you.” Andrew Zinke

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

How to sound off

We welcome original letters on public issues. Letters must include the author’s full name, home address and day and evening telephone numbers. We limit letters to 250 words and one published letter every 30 days. Election-related letters are limited to 150 words. The deadline to submit an election-

to watch the taped Feb. 25 debate hosted by the League of Women Voters and the Northwest Herald. Undersheriff Andy Zinke was prepared, professional and clearly knows how to get the job done. He has the necessary education and experience and has proved to be a positive, effective leader. Bill Prim, on the other hand, seemed disgruntled, angry and ill-equipped for the position. His answer to at least four questions was to get volunteers to help the sheriff’s office. His opening statement explained what he would not do as sheriff, and throughout the night, he explained nothing about what he would do as sheriff of McHenry County. Please don’t take my word. Watch the taped debate (http:// shawurl.com/10v6). Seeing is believing. The choice for Zinke is clear. Jeff Lichte McHenry

Provenzano for clerk

To the Editor: In this election, there is a great difference in the candidates running for county clerk. Nick Provenzano has served as my County Board member. He is very knowledgeable and able to help his constituents when they have issues that affect them directly. His opponent has not even finished her first term on the County Board and is looking to run an entire department such as the clerk’s office. My understanding is she has been unable to fulfill her responsibilities as a County Board member. Why would we elect someone who runs for office, gets elected and doesn’t show up? Maybe she should concentrate on doing the job she has been elected to before asking for more responsibility. I know Nick has the integrity, skills and desire to serve to be the next McHenry County clerk. Join me in voting Nick Provenzano for McHenry County clerk. Kathy Cayabyab McHenry

sheriff and candidate for sheriff of McHenry County, has the years of law enforcement experience, expertise, education and leadership qualities, in addition to exhibiting the character and integrity, to equip him to succeed as sheriff. We have observed Andy interacting with his family for several years and always have been impressed with his strong family values along with his dedication in serving and protecting McHenry County residents. Andy created the very successful Heroin Enforcement Education & Action Task Force. It combines case providers, law enforcement, counselors, education and local hospitals in coordinating information to target drug dealers and to help users get off of heroin. HEAT also provides an effective partnership with Cook County to target and arrest drug dealers to prevent the heroin flow from Chicago into McHenry County. Please join us in voting for Andrew Zinke for sheriff. Thank you. Paul and Phyllis Holdaway Crystal Lake

Provenzano sets example

To the Editor: When you run for office, people say anything, without facts to back it up. I have found it necessary to explain to my children the bad things people say about their dad, explaining they have never met him and they are saying things that are untrue just to make him look bad. The accusations of him being a career politician are ridiculous. He has held two offices, Nunda Township trustee and County Board member. Both part-time positions. Not to mention he had an entire career in business and continues to work for a living. He is an amazing husband and father to our children. He has set a fine example for them by leading with truth and integrity. You can tell what kind of man he is by reading his endorsements from community leaders at nickprovenzano.com/endorsements. Check it out. Be an informed voter. Bridgett Provenzano McHenry

FIRE DISPLACES FAMILY OF FOUR

CRYSTAL LAKE – A fire in a cottage at 1600 North Ave. displaced a family of four, the Crystal Lake Fire Department said. The fire left about $20,000 in damage. The fire is under investigation, but appears to have been caused by unattended cooking, according to a news release. Firefighters responded at 3:50 p.m. and had the fire under control in about 20 minutes, said Battalion Chief Chris Olsen. The American Red Cross was called to assist the family of four, Olsen said. No one was hurt. Firefighters from Cary, McHenry Township, Nunda Rural, Huntley, Lakewood, Wonder Lake, Fox River Grove and Algonquin-Lake in the Hills assisted on the call. There are no hydrants in the area.

WL MAN FACING ASSULT CHARGE

A Wonder Lake man was arrested after threatening an elderly relative with a knife. Eric J. Wegner, 34, was charged with aggravated assault after he allegedly came at the victim in Eric J. a threatening Wegner manner with a knife in his hand after the two had been arguing, according to a news release from the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office.

Woodstock chef on TV show

Commings among 20 participating in 12th season of ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ By JIM DALLKE

jdallke@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – Chef Scott Commings said he has always been good at taking criticism when it comes to his cooking. But that was put to the test recently when he was faced with notoriously critical celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. Commings, the executive chef at the Loyola University Chicago Retreat and Ecology Campus in Woodstock, is one of 20 chefs participating in the 12th season of “Hell’s Kitchen,” a Fox reality cooking

show that pits aspiring restaurateurs against one another in an intense culinary competition. “It was incredible to be part of the show,” said Commings, who wouldn’t say how long he lasted in the competition. “I wasn’t expecting to get as much out of it as I did on a Scott personal levCommings el … I learned about how I can overcome and adapt to situations.

When asked whether he got into any arguments with Ramsay during filming, Commings said, “We may have. If it did happen, it probably happened for a reason. You’re just going to have to watch the show and find out.” “[Ramsay] is an amazing individual,” he added. “He has gotten to where he is because of what he does with food. His kitchen mannerisms are so impressive. How he slopes through a kitchen and how every move means something. He was an amazing person to be learning next to.”

Arrest for theft leads to firing By SHAWN SHINNEMAN

sshinneman@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – Dale Behm has been fired from his position as street supervisor following his arrest for allegedly stealing from the city. The 36-year veteran of the city staff was charged with felony theft of government property for allegedly stealing about a ton of road salt and two snowplow skids – materials that carry the total value of about $160, City Manager Roscoe Stelford said. Behm was originally placed on paid leave after the Feb. 28 arrest. He was fired March 5. Stelford said an investigation showed road salt was taken around the turn of the year. He said he wasn’t aware of when the skids were stolen. Stelford declined to say whether there was reason to believe Behm had been stealing from the city in previous years. “I can’t hypothesize on that,” he said. “Any allegations that were made were addressed with Mr. Behm.” Street Foreman Roger Vidales has been overseeing the day-to-day operations of the street department in Behm’s absence, Public

Man doesn’t testify in felony drug trial By CHELSEA McDOUGALL

cmcdougall@shawmedia.com

WOODSTOCK – The felony drug trial for a Harvard man who prosecutors said had more than 100 grams of cocaine ended Wednesday without a verdict. Cesar G. Rojas-Figueroa, 28, is facing serious prison time on charges of possessing cocaine with the intent to deliver, and as an armed habitual criminal. Harvard police officers testified they recovered more than 100 grams of

cocaine, marijuana and a TEC-9 gun from the home Rojas-Figueroa once shared with his girlfriend. Police on Sept. 7 responded to 409 Prairie St. after Rojas-Figueroa and Brenda Valles got into an alcohol-fueled altercation. Valles testified that Rojas-Figueroa hit and choked her. For that, he’s also charged with domestic battery. Valles later gave police what prosecutors called

Nunda Township officials seeking to control contracts for waste management By JEFF ENGELHARDT

jengelhardt@shawmedia.com NUNDA TOWNSHIP – Nunda Township officials are looking to streamline waste collection services by asking residents to approve a referendum that would allow township board members to enter contracts for garbage collection, recycling and yard waste pickup. Township Supervisor Lee Jennings said waste management services are all over the place in the township with five or six different companies providing services to residents, who have individual

Streamlining services could save residents as much as $150 to $200 a year, Jennings said, while enhancing what is offered to include leaf vacuuming and brush pick-

up, which is not part of individual contracts. “The motivating factor is to try and save our residents money while being more efficient in the process,” Jennings said. “We’re consolidating and adding options at the same time.” The referendum will be on the March 18 primary ballot. In an effort to maintain relationships with companies already providing waste management services in the area, Jennings said township officials would look to enter multiple contracts for set areas.

Pulling the right cord GIRLS ON THE RUN Anna Calhan Hi. I’m Anna Calhan reporting to you from fifth grade at South Elementary. Last week was our first official Girls on the Run meeting for this year. To start off the season, every girl got to pick a special adjective that describes her and starts with the first letter of her name. For example, I’m Athletic Anna. That way it’s easier for us to learn each other’s names. We then played a fun game to get to know each other more, and I learned that most of my teammates like chocolate chip cookies, which, of course, is a good thing. We also learned what the negative cord is. It’s a cord that is plugged into the top of our heads that has bad thoughts running through it, like “I’m not good enough” or “I’ll never be smart enough.” This is the

cord that makes our heads drop when we walk and this is the cord that makes us not be able to stand up for ourselves. In GOTR, we learned how to pull that negative cord out and plug in the positive cord. The positive cord, also known as the “sparkly cord,” has good, encouraging thoughts running through it, like “I can do it” or “You’ve got this.” This is the cord that makes us stand up straight with our head held high ready to take on what we believe in. We learned how to stand up for ourselves and others and how to encourage others to plug in their positive cord because they are awesome, and they can do it. If you choose to be a Girls on the Run girl, you can do anything.

SLEEPY HOLLOW: SUSPECT SHOT AFTER POLICE RESPONDED

Coroner ID’s man killed in Sleepy Hollow incident By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO

SLEEPY HOLLOW – The man who was shot and killed by Sleepy Hollow police earlier this week was 40-year-old Erdenebileg Sambuunyam, the Kane County Coroner announced Wednesday. Two officers shot Sambuunyam after he allegedly pulled a knife and slashed it in the police’s direction

New service could start in summer • GARBAGE

Continued from page B1 For example, he said the township could be divided into four areas with a different company responsible for each section. He said all contracts would be similar in price and include yard waste pickup. “We’re not looking to do this as one big contract,” Jennings said. “We want to keep the companies that people have used here.” The peripheral savings could be just as valuable, Jennings said. He said there should be less damage to

streets with garbage trucks spending less times on the roads. There also should be fewer calls to the county health department about open burning violations with the addition of leaf pickup. If the referendum were to pass, Jennings said the changes in service would likely start in the summer or early fall. “There will always be a few people who just don’t want to see the day of their service change or something like that,” Jennings said. “But overall people have been very positive about the idea. It’s going to save money.”

aazzo@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – A 28-yearold Crystal Lake man accused of being involved in a conspiracy to cook methamphetamine across DeKalb last year was sentenced to 2 1/2 years’ probation Wednesday. Corey Lindquist, of the 600 block of Eletson Drive,

pleaded guilty Wednesday to possession of methamphetamine precursor in exchange for prosecutors dropping all other counts Corey G. against him. Lindquist Lindquist had been facing two methamphetamine-related charges,

both of which were punishable by probation or between three to seven years in prison. Prosecutors said Lindquist was one of 16 participants in a methamphetamine ring centered at Travel Inn in DeKalb. Some who were charged were accused of buying pseudoephedrine, a key ingredient for methamphetamine,

court records show. The operation’s suspected ringleader, Thomas Wilkinson, 29, of DeKalb, was sentenced Feb. 25 to seven years in prison after he admitted to participation in methamphetamine manufacturing. As part of probation terms, Lindquist cannot consume alcohol and must have a substance abuse evaluation by May 1.

Drugs, packaging materials, cutting agents, a scale and a money counter also were found there. Valles said the couple lived in that home since July, but that she had signed Rojas-Figueroa’s name to the lease. Defense attorney Donna Rotunno said Rojas-Figueroa did not have ties to the home, and argued the prosecution didn’t prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt that the drugs were his. She said police only col-

lected evidence that supported that preconceived conclusion. “Police made a predetermined decision in this case and all the evidence they collected moved in that direction,” she said. Assistant State’s Attorney John Gibbons rejected the defense’s notion that the drugs could have belonged to Valles and that she was merely an angry girlfriend seeking revenge. “It’s totally unrealistic to believe she would frame the defendant in that manner,” Gibbons said. Rojas-Figueroa did not testify and Rotunno called no witnesses. McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather presided over the trial and will return a verdict on March 28.

Income gap grows

Low-wage workers struggle to find middle-pay jobs By JOSH BOAK

The Associated Press WASHINGTON – For years, many Americans followed a simple career path: Land an entry-level job. Accept a modest wage. Gain skills. Leave eventually for a better-paying job. The workers benefited, and so did lower-wage retailers such as WalMart: When its staffers left for betterpaying jobs, they could spend more at its stores. And the U.S. economy gained, too, because more consumer spending fueled growth. Not so much anymore. Since the Great Recession began in 2007, that path has narrowed because many of the next-tier jobs no longer exist. That means more lower-wage workers have to stay put. The resulting bottleneck is helping widen a gap between the richest Americans and everyone else. “Some people took those jobs because they were the only ones available and haven’t been able to figure out how to move out of that,” Bill Simon, CEO of Wal-Mart U.S., said in an interview with The Associated Press. If Wal-Mart employees “can go to another company and another job and make more money and develop, they’ll be better,” Simon said. “It’ll be better for the economy. It’ll be better for us as a business, to be quite honest, because they’ll continue to advance in their economic life.” Yet for now, the lower-wage jobs once seen as stepping stones are increasingly being held for longer periods by older, better-educated, more experienced workers. The trend extends well beyond Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest employer, and is reverberating across the U.S. economy. It’s partly why average inflation-adjusted income has declined 9 percent for the bottom 40 percent of households since 2007, even as the top 5 percent have fully recovered from the recession that began late that year, according to the Census Bureau. Research shows that occupations that once helped elevate people from

With fewer middle-income jobs available, low-wage work is becoming a dead end for more Wal-Mart employees. the minimum wage into the middle class have disappeared during the past three recessions dating to 1991. One such category includes bookkeepers and executive secretaries, with average wages of $16.54 an hour, according to the Labor Department. Since the mid-1980s, the economy has shed these middle-income jobs – a trend that’s become more pronounced with the recoveries that have followed each subsequent recession, according to research by Henry Siu, an economist at the University of British Columbia, and Duke University economist Nir Jaimovich. That leaves many workers remaining in jobs as cashiers earning an average of $9.79 an hour, or in retail sales at roughly $10.50 – jobs that used to be entry points to higher-paying work. Hourly pay at Wal-Mart averages $8.90, according to the site Glassdoor.com. Since the Great Recession, the share of U.S workers employed by the retail and restaurant sector has risen from 16.5 percent to 17.1 percent. “It really has contributed to this widening of inequality,” Siu said. The shift has injected new pressures into the economy. Older and better-educated retail and fast food workers have become more vocal in pressing for raises. Labor unions

helped launch protests last year against such employers as Wal-Mart, McDonald’s and Burger King. Fewer teenagers are staffing cash registers, prepping meals or stocking shelves, according to government data. Replacing them are adults, many of whom are struggling with the burdens of college debt or child rearing. Some are on the verge of what was once envisioned as retirement years. They are people like Richard Wilson, 27, in Chicago. More than 2½ years ago, a Wal-Mart store manager spotted Wilson cleaning the cafeteria at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. A double major in biblical studies and business communications, Wilson had $3,000 in tuition due and had maxed out on student loans. He said the recruiter suggested that a management job could eventually be within reach for him because, “WalMart is where people’s dreams become a reality.” Wilson first worked at a Wal-Mart near college before returning to his Chicago hometown without a degree but with $50,000 in student debt and another job at a boutique Wal-Mart specializing in groceries.

RTA suing American Airlines over tax incentives By DON BABWIN

The Associated Press CHICAGO – The agency that oversees public transportation in Chicago is suing American Airlines for falsely claiming to buy “vast amounts of jet fuel” from a small office in a rural community to avoid paying tens of millions of dollars in taxes in the nation’s third-largest city, where the actual work is done. The lawsuit comes a year after the same agency – the Regional Transportation Authority – accused United Airlines in a lawsuit of doing the same thing in the same small town. The RTA filed its lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court late Tuesday afternoon. The RTA oversees the Chicago Transit Authority, the region’s Metra commuter line and the Pace suburban bus service. The agency has been making the allegations against American for more than a year but said it was waiting for the airline to

emerge from bankruptcy protection, something that happened in December. As it said when it sued United, the RTA said American or its subsidiary, American Aviation Supply, could not possibly conduct the business of buying fuel for jets at one of the largest airports in the world, Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, out of an office that’s less than a 1,000 square feet where one or two employees work. The office is in City Hall in the town of Sycamore. “We’re saying whatever work is being done there is a sham,” Jordan Matyas, the RTA’s chief of staff, said ahead of the lawsuit being filed. Matyas said that while the lawsuit also names American Aviation Supply, American Airlines is responsible for what is being done – or not being done – in Sycamore. “This is clearly American Airlines doing the deal,” he said. “They set up a subsidiary in order to funnel the money and not pay the appropriate taxes.”

RTA alleges that under the arrangement between Sycamore and American, the city reimburses the airline for a portion of the sales tax it pays on the fuel. According to the RTA, the Sycamore office cost the Chicago, Cook County and RTA a total of more than $23 million last year. American Airlines spokeswoman Mary Frances Fagan said in an emailed statement that the company believes it is “still paying the proper” tax amount and that it’s “in compliance” with the law. Sycamore’s city manager declined to comment. The litigation is part of a barrage of lawsuits filed by the RTA, the city of Chicago and Cook County against communities outside Cook County that allege those communities’ tax incentive programs are costing other government agencies millions of dollars. Matyas said he believes an Illinois Supreme Court ruling in November strengthens the RTA’s lawsuits.

Herbalife facing FTC inquiry; shares plunge

PORTLAND, Ore. – Herbalife Ltd. says it is facing an inquiry from the Federal Trade Commission. The nutrition and supplement company’s shares initially plunged more than 12 percent following a brief halt in trading pending the announcement. Herbalife said it received the civil investigative demand from the FTC Wednesday. The FTC’s website says these are used to investigate possible “unfair or deceptive acts or practices.” A representative from the FTC was not immediately available to elaborate. The company, which has faced accusations of operating a pyramid scheme, said it welcomes the inquiry given “tremendous amount of misinformation in the marketplace” about its business.

Airlines hurt as Ukraine crisis lifts oil price

GENEVA – The global airlines industry lowered its profit forecast Wednesday for this year after the Ukrainian crisis caused a spike in the price of fuel. The cost of crude oil, jet fuel and other energy sources jumped last week after Russia took effective control of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula. Investors feared escalating U.S. and European sanctions on Russia, one of the world’s largest energy suppliers. “The situation in the Ukraine is causing instability that is pushing up the price of oil. And that was the main negative driver of today’s downwards revision,” said Tony Tyler, director-general and CEO of the International Air Transport Association.

Leaves of absence raise questions for employers The Family Medical Leave Act of 1992 protects employees against job loss in the event of a family or personal medical issue, among other things. The leave applies to companies with 50 or more employees in a 75-mile radius and the protected leave lasts up to 12 weeks. Worker’s Compensation Insurance guarantees any employee who is injured on the job protection against loss of wages as the result of the injury or illness. There is no legal minimum or maximum period of coverage. Someone injured on the job may never be able to return to work. Once an event triggers any of the above leaves, the employer is left with questions and decisions. What happens if my employee does not return after the 12-week FMLA leave? What about insurance and COBRA? How long must I guarantee the job? What if we really want the employee to return even after the initial leave period expires? What happens if he returns from Worker’s Compensation Leave and then requests FMLA leave? We know she is never returning, must we keep her as an employee? Will termination effect her disability payments? First, remember that mandated leaves carry a minimum requirement to protect employees from loss of their job or benefits earned before the leave began. There is nothing in the law that demands termination if an employee does not return in

HUMAN RESOURCES Karla Dobbeck the specifically allotted time frame. Employers are free to extend any leave if they choose to do so. On the other hand, employees should be given clear guidelines to follow in the event their leave has the possibility of extending past the guaranteed amount of time. Employers should talk over their policy with the health insurance carrier. Will they continue to provide coverage even though the employee is out on leave longer than allowed under FMLA? Asking this question will help the employer better understand when COBRA needs to be initiated. The health insurance carrier may require the employee to be placed on COBRA at the beginning of a leave that is not considered FMLA, so make sure to discuss any other leave policy with them. Also, remember that employers may not retaliate against someone who has submitted a claim for protection under Worker’s Compensation or FMLA. In other words, an employee cannot be fired for collecting WC or taking advantage of their rights under FMLA. If there are other documented performance issues or documented policy violations, and if the employee claims injury on the day he/she was to be terminated for other reasons, it is best to

continue with the termination. In these situations, the employer is best served by discussing the matter with their workers’ compensation insurance carrier and an attorney. A word about concurrent leaves. If an employee is out due to Maternity, Workers’ Compensation or Disability Leave, the law allows the employer to charge the employee’s leave time against the FMLA entitlement. If the employee is unable to work due to a ‘serious health condition,’ the time off would qualify under FMLA. By initiating FMLA at the start of the leave, employers are protected from an employee returning from one leave and beginning another. Also, employers may require an employee to substitute all earned vacation, personal or sick leave during FMLA.

College grads among low-wage workers • GAP

Continued from page B6 Today, Wilson earns $9.45 an hour at that Wal-Mart and lives on the city’s western edge with his grandmother. He boards a bus most mornings at 3:30 a.m. and arrives for his 5 a.m. shift in the more upscale neighborhood of Lakeview East. He has applied for promotions. So far, no success. If he had the money for a ring and a wedding, Wilson said he would propose to his girlfriend. Last year, 17.4 million Americans between ages 25 and 64 earned less than $10.10 an hour, the minimum wage proposed by President Barack Obama (The current federal minimum is $7.25.) That’s equal to an income of nearly $19,000 for a full-time employee – less than half the median pay of a U.S. worker. The share of Americans in their prime earning years who earn the equivalent of $10.10 an hour or less, adjusted for inflation, has risen to 13.4 percent from 10.4 percent in 1979, according to government data analyzed by John Schmitt, a senior economist at the progressive Center for Economic and Policy Research. Nearly a third of low-wage employees last year had had some college education. An additional 10 percent had graduated. By contrast, in 1979 less than 25 percent of low-wage employees had college experience. Most had not completed high school. For millions of lower-wage workers, more schooling hasn’t led to higher pay. “Where you start out in terms of wages helps to predict where you move over time,” Schmitt said. That principle has become an alarming reality for many. Only 5.5 percent of people with jobs at the fast food chain Wendy’s will earn more than $70,000 in today’s dollars at that company, based on a review last year of 8 million resumes by the analytics firm Bright.com. Just 8 percent of Home Depot employees will be so fortunate. For Macy’s, 9.4 percent. By contrast, more than a quarter of Amazon staffers will exceed $70,000 a year. The ratio is even better for Verizon and AT&T workers. A majority of

Ford employees will achieve that income at least once in their career. Just 10 percent of Wal-Mart workers will. Wal-Mart promotes itself as a source of opportunity, and in some cases, that’s proved true. Over 11 years, for example, Tonya Jones rose from staffing a checkout line to managing a section of a Wal-Mart supercenter in Hendersonville, Tenn. Jones, 41, said her pay exceeds $15 an hour – enough with scholarships, including one from Wal-Mart, to help put her daughter through college. Asked whether she represents an average Wal-Mart worker, Jones said opportunities at the company boil down to personal choices. “I want to be No. 1,” she said. “I am very competitive.” That said, the data show why it’s harder now for workers to rise into higher-paying fields despite an economic recovery now nearly 5 years old. About 1.9 million office and administrative support jobs were lost to the Great Recession, according to government data. That includes 714,370 executive secretaries with annual incomes averaging $50,220. And 252,240 fewer bookkeepers with average incomes of $36,640. By comparison, the number of lower-wage jobs increased: The Labor Department says restaurants added 777,800 jobs since the recession began, general merchandise stores 345,600. “You see adults moving into these relatively generic services (jobs) that don’t require expertise, just dexterity, attention and showing up,” said MIT economist David Autor. “You want people to be in jobs that have good trajectories. I can imagine you only get so efficient as a checkout clerk or a stocker.” Wal-Mart customer service manager Janet Sparks of Baker, La., trained as a bookkeeper. She owned a video rental store and worked for an accountant, a nuclear power plant, a McDonald’s and a bank before joining Wal-Mart about eight years ago. Sparks, 53, said Wal-Mart once offered a path to the middle class with merit raises of up to $2 an hour. The company ended those raises, while making more employees eligible for bonuses based on a store’s overall performance. It also introduced what’s

called “optimal scheduling” to match employees with expected sales. It can mean that workers whose shift ended at 11 p.m. might have to begin their next shift at 7 a.m., Sparks said. Sparks said the erratic schedule makes it hard for employees to earn additional income from a second job. She joined Wal-Mart in 2005 with the expectation that the sincecancelled merit pay raises would eventually let her clear $21 an hour. She instead received smaller raises and now earns $12.40. Wal-Mart said it began to change its bonus system in 2006. It now pays bonuses of up to $2,500 to some employees based on their store’s performance. And it says its scheduling system considers the preferences and availability of employees and gives them three weeks’ notice of their work calendars. Other retailers have also adopted optimal scheduling. Starbucks was sued by a former employee over its system, according to Massachusetts court records. Starbucks said on its corporate site that the “goal” of optimal scheduling “was to provide the most working hours to those partners who were available to do so.” Retail industry executives argue that stronger economic growth would make it possible to pay higher wages. The economy grew just 1.9 percent last year, well below its postWorld War II average of 3.2 percent. “For generations of Americans, it was an entry-level wage that got you into a position in which you could gain skills and experience and then get connected to the workforce and move up,” said Matthew Shay, CEO of the National Retail Federation. “The problem now is the economy is not growing rapidly enough to create those other opportunities.” Simon’s suggestion that many Wal-Mart employees might be better off leaving for other jobs surprised WalMart cashier Joanna Lopez. A 26-year-old single mother, she owns no car and lives with her church pastor near Fremont, Calif. She collects food stamps and receives insurance through California’s version of Medicaid.

BEARS FREE AGENCY

Emery revels in NFL’s March madness LAKE FOREST – Phil Emery never felt dizzy. Maybe everyone else felt dizzy, what with 32 NFL teams vying for many hundreds of free agents all at once. But the Bears general manager felt right at home in the frenzy, like a veteran quarterback in the pocket as chaos erupted all around him. “I was having the time of my life,” Emery said with a smile Wednesday at Halas Hall. No, I’ve never felt this way before. … Yes, I swear. … It’s the tru-uuuth… . Ahem, sorry. Back to football. The Bears organized a news conference to introduce two of their free-agent acquisitions, defensive end Lamarr Houston and safety Ryan Mundy. Shiny new jerseys awaited the players

– No. 99 for Houston, No. 21 for Mundy – and both men flashed millionaires’ smiles as they held up their jerseys for the cameras. It was a nice moment. And then I checked my Twitter feed and saw that Josh McCown had signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, DeMarcus Ware Phil Emery had signed with the Denver Broncos, Darren Sproles had requested his release from the New Orleans Saints, Darrelle Revis had been cut by Tampa, and Owen Daniels was visiting Green Bay. Plus a bunch of other stuff. So, you know, kind of a hohum afternoon. Here, right smack in the

BEARS INSIDER Tom Musick middle of two wild days of NFL transactions, seemed like a good time to check in on Emery. Because if he showed any signs of grumpiness or weariness or hesitation, that probably would bode poorly for the Bears. Instead, Emery looked as giddy as an English teacher in a bookstore. “How’s everybody doing?” Emery asked as he stepped to the lectern. “Did you slog through the snow this morning? They do a great job around here cleaning the streets. We knew if we got you at 1:30, it’d be all cleared and ready to go.”

This was vintage Emery, friendly and upbeat. That’s good because significant work remains for Emery and his coaching staff as they look to repair the Bears’ woeful defense from a year ago. Houston and Mundy are a nice start, but the Bears still need a starting cornerback, a No. 3 cornerback, a couple of safeties, a couple of defensive tackles, a couple of defensive ends, another quarterback with NFL experience and an effective No. 2 running back. Did we mention depth at tight end and on the offensive line? Emery’s happy mood was not a product of denial or blissful ignorance. The longtime scout acknowledged the work that looms ahead both in free agency and the draft.

“We’ve got some holes to fill,” Emery said. “We’ve got a lot of work to do on our roster. That’s why I made sure that – I want our fans to know that the work is not going to stop, and we just consider these signings as a step in the right direction.” Sure, Emery dodged a few personnel questions, such as what the Bears might do with Charles Tillman or Henry Melton – “We’re working through that,” he said – but he also offered some valuable insight. Yes, he said, the Bears’ free-agent moves would help to shape which positions the team would target in the draft. He also said the crop of cornerbacks was much deeper in the draft than it was in free agency.

Shooting woes doom Hurricanes By JOE STEVENSON

joestevenson@shawmedia.com HAMPSHIRE – Marian Central was not likely to carry over its blazing 3-point shooting from Friday’s Class 3A regional championship victory against Marengo. The Hurricanes would have settled for lukewarm. Instead, Marian did not shoot well from behind the 3-point line or in front of it. That, along with Sycamore’s relentless glass-pounding spelled the end for the Hurricanes, 58-48, Wednesday in a Hampshire Sectional boys basketball semifinal game. Sycamore advances to Friday’s 7 p.m. championship game against Rockford Lutheran. It was Sycamore’s first sectional victory in school history. “Rebounding was one of the problems,” said Marian coach Curtis Price, whose team was outrebounded, 34-23. “We couldn’t hit a bucket in the first half, it seemed like we missed every jumpshot we took. And [Sycamore] was determined to get the boards on us and we just couldn’t stop that.”

ELGIN – Ben Murray looked into the eyes of his Jacobs teammates midway through Wednesday night’s Class 4A Elgin Sectional semifinal and made one thing clear: He wasn’t going out like this. Not with a 15-point loss. Not on a night that could bring the careers of the Golden Eagles’ seniors to an end. All season, Jacobs had made a habit of fighting from behind.

8SPORTS SHORTS Martin on familiar ground with 49ers

SAN FRANCISCO – Although there were doubts whether any team would give Jonathan Martin another chance, the NFL coach who knows him best considered it an easy call. San Francisco’s Jim Harbaugh once sat in Martin’s living room to recruit him, coached him for three years at Stanford and developed Martin into an All-American and a second-round draft pick, then stood by him from afar as Martin accused a Miami teammate of bullying last year. Martin is back in a place he can feel safe as he starts over on the football field. Harbaugh’s 49ers acquired the offensive tackle in a trade with the Dolphins on Tuesday night, with a physical scheduled for Thursday to finalize the deal.

Pistorius trial: Bathroom door presented in court PRETORIA, South Africa – A South African police officer swung a cricket bat at Oscar Pistorius’ bullet-marked bathroom door during his murder trial Wednesday, using two key pieces of evidence to re-enact the night he killed his girlfriend. Police Col. J.G. Vermeulen faced tough questioning from Pistorius’ defense lawyer, who tried to discredit the police investigation of the shooting and alleged that Vermeulen, a forensic expert, made glaring missteps in his analysis. Pistorius’ lawyers secured bail for him last year after contending that police contaminated or tampered with evidence from the home where he fatally shot Reeva Steenkamp, firing through the bathroom door as she cowered inside during the pre-dawn hours of Valentine’s Day 2013. Pistorius said the killing was a mistake; the prosecution alleges the 27-year-old double-amputee intentionally shot Steenkamp after an argument.

Sharper is in custody in Los Angeles, where he has pleaded not guilty to seven rape and drug counts in connection with two alleged attacks in Hollywood. He had been freed on $1 million bail before turning himself in when an arrest warrant was issued in New Orleans.

Bears introduce Houston, Mundy By KEVIN FISHBAIN

AP file photo

Former Bears quarterback Josh McCown prepares to pass against during a game against the Dallas Cowboys on Dec. 9 at Soldier Field. McCown has agreed to terms of a two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a move that reunites him with coach Lovie Smith.

Bears lose a key piece at QB Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith smiled like he knowingly stole something that was very valuable and had gotten away with it. The victims? His former team, the Bears, and starting quarterback, Jay Cutler. And that probably made it feel sweeter for Smith, who beamed when first asked about the Buccaneers’ signing of quarterback Josh McCown at a news conference Wednesday. The news of McCown’s twoyear, $10 million deal, which could reach $15 million with incentives, broke just minutes before the Bears introduced new defensive end Lamarr Houston and safety Ryan Mundy at Halas Hall. It was a loss that the Bears definitely were prepared for with quarterback Jordan Palmer already re-signed. But it also is a loss that could bring about some ramifications for a team committed to Cutler. Coach Marc Trestman might be able to work magic with any quarterback – let’s not forget there were serious doubts about McCown before last season – but Trestman and anyone in the Bears’ locker room would tell you that McCown became so much more than the typical backup. The Bears are Cutler’s team more than ever. And Cutler just lost one of his closest friends on the team and then some. Cutler lost an intelligent, determined student of the game who helped him prepare in ways unlike previous backups. He lost a teammate who humbly accepted his backup role and was a calming presence.

LAKE FOREST – Tuesday night’s snowstorm didn’t rattle the Bears’ biggest signing of the 2014 free agency period – Lamarr Houston. For his wife, on the other hand, it will take some getting used to. “My wife’s from L.A. She’s never driven in the snow,” Houston joked with reporters when asked about his biggest concern in coming to Lamarr Chicago. Houston Houston got his first taste of Chicago, and the local media at Halas Hall on Wednesday. A former Raider, Houston signed a five-year contract, and brings to the Bears what has been general manager Phil Emery’s word of the offseason – versatility. “I believe that Coach (Mel) Tucker is going to put me in the best position to make plays, whether that’s inside or out,” Houston said, “and I think it’s going to be a great fit for me, being able to do things that makes the defense more versatile than having to make too many changes.” Wherever Houston does line up, though, don’t try to label him. “This game is not about labels,” he said. “I don’t want to be labeled as (only) a pass rusher (or) a run stopper, just an athlete who plays the game the way it’s supposed to be played.” Big hitter: Ryan Mundy had the pleasure of playing with Troy Polamalu and Ryan Clark in Pittsburgh for four years, got his chance to start in New York last year and now will compete for the Bears’ open strong safety job.

“I feel like I’m coming in here to compete for a starting opportunity, and that’s all I can ask for,” Mundy said. “I don’t shy away from competition. I look forward to getting started with workouts and practices and everything like that.” Emery said Mundy is a player the Bears have evaluated for some time, using the adjectives of “tough, hardnosed, physical, smart, instinctive” to describe Mundy, who considers himself Ryan Mundy a hard-hitting safety. “I think I bring a physical nature to the defense. That’s been my M.O. for as long as I can remember, since I started playing football,” he said. “I’m not a guy who’s going to shy away from contact.” Another new safety: The Bears signed former Packers safety M.D. Jennings to a one-year contract. Jennings started all 16 games as Green Bay’s free safety last season, but was ranked 67th by Pro Football Focus. Emery lauded Jennings’ versatility, range and coverage skills. Bye-bye, Josh: Josh McCown signed a two-year deal with the Buccaneers to be their starting quarterback. “We all want to congratulate Josh. He has been provided with a great opportunity to be a starter down there in Tampa. We’re very happy for him and very proud for you him,” Emery said. The Bears host the Buccaneers next season. New numbers: Houston will wear No. 99, and Shea McClellin – now a linebacker – will switch to No. 50, which was James Anderson’s number. Mundy will wear No. 21, which was Major Wright’s number the past four seasons.

RECRUITING NOTES

PR’s Wagner to walk on at Wisconsin By JOE STEVENSON

joestevenson@shawmedia.com Prairie Ridge senior Erin Wagner had options. She could have accepted a scholarship offer to run cross country and track at NCAA Division II Truman State. Or waited to see what coaches at Drake or Illinois-Chicago, D-I schools with which she had been in contact, had to say. Wagner was coming off her best season of running, which culminated in a ninthplace finish in the Class 2A girls race at the IHSA cross coun- Erin Wagner try state meet. So there would have been coaches, with scholarship money, who were interested. But Wagner’s heart was 11/2 hours northwest of Crystal Lake, at a place she had been several times for running camps. Wagner longed to be a Wisconsin Badger, even if it meant starting her career as a preferred walk-on. Wagner recently was contacted by Wisconsin women’s cross country coach Jim Stintzi and will run for the Badgers next season in cross country and track. As is the case with most walk-ons, once Wagner contributes more to the team, Stintzi is likely to

find her some scholarship money. “He told me he would be happy to have me walk on,” Wagner said. “I love the campus and the school is amazing. I’ve been going to running camp there for a few years. Coach Stintzi seems to be a great coach and I really connected with the girls on the team.” At the running camps, the Badgers’ runners usually work as counselors, so Wagner got a taste of what being on the team would be like. “Hopefully, eventually I can work up to a scholarship,” Wagner said. Matthys to Whitewater: McHenry senior Michaela Matthys will continue her swimming career at D-III Wisconsin-Whitewater next year. Matthys was the Northwest Herald Swimmer of the Year after qualifying for the state meet in the 100yard butterfly. She narrowly missed qualifying for the finals in that race. Matthys also received Co-MVP honors at the Fox Valley Conference championships. Lesniewski to Missouri school: Marian Central defensive end Thomas Lesniewski, one of the area’s top linemen, will play football at NAIA Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Mo., this fall on scholarship. Lesniewski (6-foot-1, 214 pounds) was one of Marian’s fastest players, even though he was a lineman. He had nine sacks, four tackles for losses

BULLS

Thibodeau takes blame for start Next

By JOE COWLEY

jcowley@suntimes.com CHICAGO – Forget being ready to play. The Bulls weren’t even ready to show up. Whether it was a hangover from their emotional win Sunday over the Miami Heat or simply the weight of facing their third consecutive playoff-caliber team, the Bulls completely were dismantled by the defending Western Conference champion Spurs, 104-96, Tuesday at the United Center. And it wasn’t that close. “They were whupping our tail from the very beginning,” swingman Jimmy Butler said. “There’s nothing else to say about that. They were the more ready team than we were. We just came out stagnant, a few turnovers, weren’t making shots, and that led us into not playing the type of defense we usually play. I feel like that was the biggest key of the game.” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau had his own theory, and in his opinion it started with him. “You know 38-14 in the first quarter, readiness to play, that’s the biggest thing,” Thibodeau said, referring to the score after one quarter. “Like I told them, that was completely on me. My job is to have us ready. We had no edge to us. That’s a championship team, and if you don’t match that intensity, you’re going to be in a big hole. There has to be an edge in shootaround, there has to be an edge the day before in practice.” The Spurs (47-16) took a 15-6 lead after a Kawhi Leonard jumper five minutes into the game. It was 30-11 with two minutes left. When the quarter ended, the Bulls (35-29) were down 24. That’s too big of a deficit against most teams, but against the Spurs? Hit the showers, and just call it a bad night at the office.

vs. Houston, 6 p.m. Thursday, CSN, TNT, AM-1000 “It’s on us,” Butler said. “We’re the ones out there playing, so we have to bring it every night. Thibs can only do so much. We knew we had to be ready, and we weren’t. It’s in the books.” Butler was right about one thing: It was on them, specifically the starters. Carlos Boozer, Mike Dunleavy and Kirk Hinrich combined for 18 points. Defensively, they seemed to have all kinds of problems with Tony Parker and Leonard. As a team, the Spurs shot 7 for 10 from beyond the 3-point line in the first half. Guard D.J. Augustin was asked if it was an emotional letdown after beating the Heat, but he didn’t want to use that as an excuse. “We should bring the fire every night,” Augustin said. There were a few signs of life as the game went on, but falling behind by 32 in the second quarter didn’t leave a lot of room for error. Not when the Spurs shot 61 percent (25 for 41) going into halftime, compared with 30.3 percent (10 for 33) for the Bulls. Although the Bulls outscored the Spurs 30-14 in the final quarter, it came against backups who looked more disinterested than concerned with a comeback. And although it was a game most of the players wanted to forget, you can bet the film session Wednesday with Thibodeau will have some reminders. “Great lesson,” Thibodeau said. “Because they all count the same. You have to learn about that game (with the Heat), what did it take to win, and then get ready for the next one. We didn’t do that.’’

and was named the Suburban Christian Conference Blue Division Defensive Player of the Year. “[Missouri Valley] offered to me early,” Lesniewski said. “I looked at some D-II and D-III schools, but Missouri Valley’s a very good NAIA program. I felt comfortable at a smaller school.” Lesniewski wants to major in political science and said he talked with some D-I coaches, but they thought he was too small for defensive end. His speed and diligence in the weightroom should serve him well at Missouri Valley. He was a Northwest Herald All-Area first-team selection. Mischke an All-Star: McHenry center Brad Mischke has been selected to play in the Illinois Coaches Association All-Star Shrine Game on July 12 at Illinois Wesleyan’s Tucci Stadium in Bloomington. Mischke (6-1, 270) was the Warriors’ MVP, which, as McHenry coach Dave D’Angelo could best remember, is the first time an offensive lineman won that award. He was a Northwest Herald All-Area first-team selection. “My coach nominated me for it,” Mischke said. “I was pretty excited about it (the All-Star game). I didn’t know what to say.” Mischke is leaning toward attending D-III Concordia (Wis.) University, located in Mequon, just north of

Milwaukee.

tors coach Brian Bogda said. “These

offensive lineman Jeremy Marshall will attend D-III Aurora University, where he will be reunited with high school teammate Cody Lane. Marshall (5-11, 225) was a force on the line for the Chargers (6-4), who made the playoffs for the first time since 1994. He was a Northwest Herald All-Area honorable-mention pick. Marshall helped Lane become one of the area’s best rushers in 2012, but Lane missed the 2013 season with a knee injury. Gators make plans: Crystal Lake South baseball players Casey Oliver, Paul Wille and Ryan Hetherington have made their college decisions for next year. Oliver, a catcher, will play at D-III North Park University. He hit .296, drove in 18 runs and threw out 43 percent of basestealers last season. Wille will play center field this spring and hit .400 last spring in a reserve role. He will play next year at McHenry County College. Hetherington, a utility player, will play at D-III Carroll University in Waukesha, Wis. He played infield and outfield last season and was used as a pinch runner. He will have an expanded role this season. “These guys are going to outstanding programs where they will be able to contribute right away,” Ga-

workers. I appreciate the time that they are putting in to making themselves better for the baseball program and I am looking forward to working with them this spring.” Hofmann to Elmhurst: Crystal Lake Central pitcher Tyler Hofmann will play at D-III Elmhurst College next year. Hofmann was 4-4 with a 3.56 ERA last season for the Tigers. Raiders to Stevens Point: Huntley’s Emily Westermeyer and Alyssa Deem will play volleyball at D-III Wisconsin-Stevens Point this fall. Westermeyer is a 5-8 outside hitter and Deem is a 5-5 libero. Stevens Point advanced to the semifinals of the NCAA Division III national tournament last season. Westermeyer and Deem both play for Club Fusion away from high school volleyball. Huntley to Beloit: Woodstock North baseball senior Jamie Huntley will continue his career at D-III Beloit College next year. Huntley is a right-handed pitcher and also will be used as a middle infielder by Thunder coach Ian Rago this season. “It’s a great opportunity for Jamie,” Rago said. “He has worked extremely hard toward a goal of playing baseball at the next level, not only in our program but also with his fall and winter travel team. I’m very happy for him.”

Pischke leads Marian Central with 17 points in loss • HURRICANES

Continued from page C1 The Spartans (23-7) did not score outside the lane in the first half, and hit only 9 of 29, but led 18-16 because of their offensive rebounding. “They definitely crashed the boards,” said forward Matt Ricchiuto, who scored 10 points and led the Hurricanes with seven rebounds. “They wanted it, that’s for sure.” Forwards Ben Niemann (17 points, 11 rebounds) and Devin Mottet (18 points, 10 rebounds) were the main culprits. “It was huge. Anytime you get some extra offensive possessions from rebounds, it helps,” Spartans coach Andrew Stacy said. “We struggled from the 3-point line, but we’re just glad to get a chance to play Friday night.” Niemann is 6-foot-3 and is headed to Iowa to play football. Mottet is 6-2 and was equally tough for Marian to stop. “We’re a little undersized,

and hit 13 of 14 free throws. Marian shot 7 of 25 from the field in the first half and improved in the second half, but Pischke had the Hurricanes’ only 3. He, Derreck Caldez and Wyatt Lindell hit 12 3s Friday against Marengo. “They pressured us real hard and we couldn’t get open,” Caldez said. “They did a good job, give them the credit.” It was Marian’s third sectional trip in five years, sandwiched around seasons of three and four wins, so Price Monica Maschak – mmaschak@shawmedia.com likes where the Hurricanes, Sycamore’s Ben Niemann is tied up by a pair of Marian Central players who played several juniors while going for a loose in the fourth quarter of a Class 3A Hampshire along with Pischke a lot this Sectional semifinal Wednesday night in Hampshire.

Jacobs cuts deficit too 1 before South Elgin pulls away • GOLDEN EAGLES

Continued from page C1 Asked to respond to what could have been a major momentum shift, the Eagles scored the game’s next eight points to get within 53-52 with 6:34 remaining. In that instant, first-year coach Jimmy Roberts sensed his team had one more run left. “That’s why you coach, that’s why you play, that’s why you work as hard as you do – just to get in those moments,” Roberts said. “Those moments when you’re down and you come back and they’ve got to call timeout.

it had played too many games during the regular season. Assistant coach Steve Szpejnowski called timeout and told his players to hold their composure. The Storm – led by Wells’ 26 points – did just that, pushing their lead back to double digits before Jacobs eventually got the lead back to five on a last-second Cameron Krutwig basket. Krutwig joined his fellow four starters by scoring in double figures, paced by Cory Boeckh, who led with 15 points. Kenton Mack finished with 12. But it wasn’t enough. Afterward, Murray said he couldn’t put the difficulty of the moment into words. Roberts, holding back tears, did. “I thought we had a great opportunity to win,” he said. “But they did enough. But I’m proud of those guys. I’m just sad that we don’t get to do it again.”

Seeling wasn’t your typical outdoorsman

It’s funny to me when people say that someone doesn’t look like an outdoorsman. It just doesn’t make sense. It’s like thinking that everyone who goes to the Chicago Musky Show ought to be big like Babe Winkelman and clad in camo or flannel and big waterproof boots. One serious outdoorsman in McHenry County did not fit that mold. It was Woodstock’s Mike Seeling, who died at age 65 last week. Seeling had a gentle demeanor, advertised by the smile he often displayed. His thinning, wispy hair and clerk-like glasses were definitely not things that proclaimed him to be an outdoors warrior. His stature was rather odd. In my mind, Mike always resembled a Weeble. If you don’t remember, Weebles were toy figures manufactured by Hasbro that were eggshaped and stood on their bottoms and never fell down. Seeling, however, was one of the most dedicated outdoorsmen that I ever have had the pleasure of sharing time with on the water and in the woods. I fished with Mike a few times and hunted pheasant once or twice. A number of outdoors writers and photographers, like Seeling,

attended a function in southern Illinois. He worked for the Daily Herald and remained there for 38 years until his retirement as director of photography, the only job he ever held. We all were slotted to be able to take part in two activities a day – one hunting and one fishing. Seeling was able to finagle his schedule to get in three events a day and he always came in late for the seminars and the meals. He wasn’t there to eat and drink, he was there to do. He was a good shot and a talented fisherman and archer. He loved cleaning and butchering what he harvested and enjoyed hanging around with Crystal Lake’s noted “Chef Green Acres,” Mike Ventresca, to come up with new gourmet treats based on game, wild birds and fresh fish. McHenry’s Spence Petros was a close friend who shared many outings with Seeling. They recently took a fishing trip to Louisiana that Petros deemed, “One of the

from Dave’s Bait, Tackle and Taxidermy in Crystal Lake reports: “Hints of spring are starting to show with a couple of days in the 40s and 50s. We still have a lot of ice, so be careful on the north sides of the lakes, and where streams run into the lakes and ponds. Late ice can be a good time to catch crappies and bluegills just under the ice. Now would be a good time to get your reels cleaned and new line put on.”

WHITE SOX SPRING TRAINING

Sox want to clean up fielding Early returns in Arizona promising By MARK POTASH

mpotash@suntimes.com GLENDALE, Ariz. – A year after establishing himself as a potential Gold Glove second baseman in 2011 and 2012, Gordon Beckham took a step backward last season. His 12 errors were the second most among American League shortstops. “Stupid mistakes,” Beckham said. “I can make the plays – I’ve proven that. It wasn’t a lack of concentration. But there were certain Next times where it just didn’t vs. L.A. Anwork out. I had gels, 3:05 p.m. a terrible year Thursday defensively.” “It just didn’t work out” pretty much explains the defensive collapse that greased the skids for the White Sox’s miserable 2013 season. A year after the Sox allowed the fewest unearned runs (30) in the AL, they allowed the second-most (80). Not one player even was nominated for a Gold Glove. “Getting hurt early (a broken hand that forced him to miss 47 games) and coming back, I never felt comfortable,” said Beckham, who was second in the AL in fielding percentage in 2011 and fourth in 2012. “And the way the team was going, it was just one of those things that compounded.” One theory is that the Sox

White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham watches his throw to first after forcing out Texas Rangers baserunner Leonys Martin to start a double play in a spring game Tuesday in Glendale, Ariz. missed catcher A.J. Pierzynski last season more than they might have thought. Although Tyler Flowers is a solid defensive catcher, Pierzynski is the type of personality who commands respect and keeps everybody’s focus at a premium level. Defense is all about concentration, effort and presence of mind – basically what Pierzynski was all about. Whatever it was, Beckham agrees that it was a teamwide funk. Alexei Ramirez led AL shortstops with 22 errors. He made 12 in 2012. Newcomer Conor Gillaspie made 16 er-

rors and had the lowest fielding percentage among AL third basemen. “It was very strange ... something nobody expected,” Beckham said. “It was definitely contagious. Instead of being, ‘I’m going to make the next play,’ it was like, ‘I don’t want to be the next guy [to make a mistake]. When that [mindset] gets into a team, everybody’s trying to not be the guy to mess up. That’s obviously the wrong way to go about it.” The good news for the Sox is that it can change right back in a hurry. The Tampa Bay

Rays went from first in the AL in fielding percentage in 2011 (73 errors) to last (114) in 2012. Last year they were second (59). The early returns are promising for the Sox. They’ve committed four errors in 11 spring training games. Gillaspie, starting his second full season in the big leagues, made two outstanding defensive plays behind Chris Sale on Monday. Flowers shows signs of being a more demonstrative leader behind the plate. Manager Robin Ventura likes what he sees. “So far,” Ventura said. “We are different. We have different people out there that potentially it looks better. We thought we were OK last year and it didn’t work, so you continue to work at it.” Ventura said the focus was lacking “at times” last season. “Some of it [is focus]. Some of it is physical,” Ventura said. “You have to have both of them to be good [defensively], and you have to want to be able to do it.” That’s where new center fielder Adam Eaton comes in. Eaton is expected to be an upgrade defensively and is eager to make the entire outfielder better “Being a good defensive player is just having that focus to bring that effort day-in and day-out,” Eaton said. “I wasn’t here last year, but by the sound of it, that’s how everything went last year – a little sour. “This year? I think everyone has the good mindset of getting things going in the right direction. If I’m in center every day, I’m definitely going to bring that focus to the outfielders and keep us in check and make sure we’re going in the right direction.”

CUBS SPRING TRAINING

Almora, Bryant, Soler among 1st cut By GORDON WITTENMYER gwittenmyer@suntimes.com

MMESA, Ariz. – The show is over. Elvis has left the building – not to mention Albert Almora, Kris Bryant and Jorge Soler. The Cubs turned out the brightest lights shining in camp this spring when they included the three big-shot prospects among nine players sent out on the first day of major-league camp cuts. “All players are always a little disappointed,” manager Rick Renteria said, “but they know there’s a purpose and a reason for everything we do.” Almora and Bryant, the Cubs’ top draft picks the past two years, were in their first big-league camps; both were re-assigned to minor-league camp. Soler, the $30 million Cuban free agent, was optioned from his second camp to Double-A Tennessee. The three are ranked among the Cubs’ top five prospects by Baseball America. The Cubs’ seventh-ranked prospect, second baseman Arismendy Alcantara, also was optioned out of camp, to Triple-A Iowa. The minor-league spring schedule starts Thursday. “Obviously, we’re glad they’re Cubbies,” Renteria said of the high-ranked guys

Dodgers, 3:05 p.m. Friday sent out. “They’ve shown their ability to be professionals here, in terms of how they carried themselves, how they worked, some of the performances they had during the course of the spring they were here. “But now it’s time for them to get down there, start getting some more at-bats, start getting ready for the regular

season for themselves and continue to develop and improve their skill sets.” Meanwhile, it’s back to reality for Cubs and the fans watching the actual team they’ll put on the field for what’s expected to be a fifth consecutive losing season. Even the one remaining prospect in camp from the organization’s top nine – No. 1 prospect Javy Baez – already is scheduled for an eventual Opening Day assignment as the Triple-A shortstop in Iowa. Until then, the first-year manager and staff plan to get an extended look at the slug-

ging shortstop expected to make a big-league debut at some point this season – but presumably without his natural position available. The Cubs have been adamant that moving Starlin Castro from short is “off the table,” as general manager Jed Hoyer put it last month. “We want to still be able to see [Baez] work and play in different positions,” said Renteria, who plans to have Baez make his spring debut at second base either Monday or Tuesday. “And then we’ll go from there to maybe working him at third,” he said. “It’s a work in progress.” Baez said he hasn’t played second or third since high school. But he’s been taking infield at second base in early practices this spring and said he’s comfortable enough to play either spot during a game. Also among the cuts Wednesday were infielder Logan Watkins and outfielder Matt Szczur, both of whom were optioned to Triple-A Iowa. Re-assigned to minor-league camp were infielder Jeudy Valdez, left-hander Eric Jokisch and right-hander Carlos Pimentel. Outfielder Aaron Cunningham, a minor-league free agent signed over the winter, was given his release.

BIG TEN TOURNAMENT

Michigan tries to end tourney title drought By MICHAEL MAROT The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS – No. 8 Michigan ended one championship drought by winning its first outright Big Ten crown last week. Now the Wolverines will get a chance to end another title drought in the conference tournament, which has been filled with some of the school’s most forgettable basketball moments – from Evan Turner’s 40-foot buzzer-beater for Ohio State to the embarrassment of having the 1998 title stripped away because of NCAA sanctions. Maybe this time, Michigan can put those images behind it for good. “You’ve just got to go and get through those first games and really play well,” coach John Beilein said before leaving for Indianapolis. “You’ve got to find ways to get lucky and got to find times to play hard and if you can, you’ll be sitting there in the championship game.” The Wolverines (23-7) are the favorite. They have the conference’s player of the year, Nik Stauskas, and the media’s choice for coach of the year in Beilein. They have a fivegame winning streak and 15 wins in conference play. They have multiple NBA prospects and for the first time in school history, the defending national runner-ups are seeded No. 1. But Beilein also is well aware of what can go wrong in the postseason. He led the Wolverines to semifinal appearances in 2011 and 2012, but they haven’t played for a title since or won more than one game in a single tourney since that ’98 championship run, which later was expunged. Michigan’s march toward redemption begins Friday against either eighth-seeded Indiana (17-14) or ninth-seeded Illinois (18-13), which play Thursday. No. 24 Ohio State (23-8), the five seed, plays 12th-seeded Purdue (15-16) in Thursday’s other afternoon game. Seventh-seeded Minnesota faces 10th-seeded Penn State, while sixth-seeded Iowa and 11th-seeded Northwestern meet in Thursday night’s games. No. 12 Wisconsin (25-6), No. 23 Michigan State (23-8) and Nebraska (19-11) – the

second, third and fourth seeds – all earned byes into Friday’s quarterfinals. The Badgers will play Minnesota (19-12) or Penn State (15-16), while the Spartans get Iowa (20-11) or Northwestern (1318) and Nebraska squares off against Minnesota (19-12) or Penn State (15-16). Here are five things to look for this week in Indianapolis: Play-in games: Most tournament analysts believe six Big Ten teams will get NCAA tournament bids. A seventh could get in with a strong tourney run. The two teams with the most to gain or lose this week appear to be Minnesota and Nebraska. Petteway’s push: Terran Petteway had a breakout season for the Cornhuskers, averaging 18 points and earning all-league honors. He also has the Cornhuskers going into the postseason as one of the league’s hottest teams with 10 wins in 12 games. The Nebraska women won their first-ever conference tournament title Sunday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, which prompted coach Connie Yori to declare that Nebraska is no longer just a football school. Now the men’s team has a chance to prove it. Healthy Spartans: Michigan State coach Tom Izzo does his best work in March and April, and there’s no place he’d rather be than Indy. Here, Izzo has won a tourney title, his lone national championship and a regional final that allowed the Spartans to make a Final Four appearance in suburban Detroit. Can he do it again? Perhaps. His team, once considered a national title contender, finally is getting healthy. The red Badgers: Wisconsin regained its mojo during the second half of the conference season and is moving full steam ahead into the postseason. How good are these Badgers? They were ranked in the top five in January and were one of the last undefeated teams in the nation. After a midseason slump, the Badgers are playing well again. Home-state woes: Purdue and Indiana have struggled all season with consistency. Although some think the two Indiana schools have an inherent home-court advantage, Purdue has only won one title (2009) and the Hoosiers haven’t won any – numbers that aren’t expected to change this year.

BIG EAST CONFERENCE MEN’S BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT

NIU falls to Eastern Michigan DePaul surprises Georgetown By STEVE NITZ

snitz@shawmedia.com CLEVELAND – The past couple of years, going up against Eastern Michigan’s zone defense has been a nightmare for the Northern Illinois men’s basketball team. Eastern Michigan came into the second round of the Mid-American Conference tournament leading the MAC in points allowed at 61.8, and as of March 10, the Eagles led the nation in field-goal percentage defense, allowing opponents to shoot only 36.4

percent. During the first half, NIU looked like it had solved the Eagles’ defense, but the second half was all too familiar. After shooting 11 of 23 in the first, the Huskies went just 3 for 21 in the second half of a 53-48 loss Wednesday at QuickenLoans Arena. In the first half, NIU shot 5 of 11 from 3-point range, but went 0 for 6 in the second. NIU also had 10 second-half turnovers. The seventh-seeded Huskies ended their season at 15-17. The six-seeded Eagles (20-13) advanced to play No. 3

Buffalo on Thursday night. “They try to take away a lot of our options of getting it into the post. We obviously want to get it into the post a lot,” NIU guard Aaric Armstead said. “I don’t think that really took the toll on us. I think that our decisions that we made really had the worst effect on us.” The Huskies ended a strong first half with an impressive 11-2 run at the end of the period. The big lead NIU took into halftime evaporated with 8:38 left in the second half after a layup by Eastern Michigan’s J.R. Sims to tie the score at 42.

NEW YORK – Billy Garrett Jr. scored 17 points, including the clinching free throws, and DePaul surprised Georgetown, 60-56, Wednesday night for only its second Big East tournament victory.

Boy given up for adoption Type of heart surgery chosen returns to mixed welcome depends on several factors

Dear Abby: When I was in my early 20s, I had a baby boy I placed for adoption. I barely could take care of myself, let alone a newborn. The father wanted nothing to do with me or the baby, so I placed him with his relatives out of state, who adopted him. With counseling, I got my life back on track, finished college and got a good job. I am married now and have a family. After 20 years, this child, “Fred,” called me. We talked every night for a few weeks, and I invited him here to live with me. Big mistake! Long story short, Fred is greedy, lazy and expects everyone to wait on him. He refuses to look for a job or go to school, and he expects me to pay all his expenses. I called his adoptive family. They said when things don’t go his way, Fred pouts and doesn’t communicate until he needs money. They feel exactly as I do – he should get a job or go to school. Abby, my family loves Fred and welcomed him with open arms, but I feel detached from him. As soon as I learned I was pregnant, I began separating myself because I knew it would be difficult to let go. I do not regard Fred as a member of my family and have no maternal feelings for him. I’d be OK if I knew he was doing well – from a distance. But I’d prefer not to maintain

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips a relationship. I don’t love this young man, and I don’t know what to say when he says, “Love you, Mom.” Am I wrong to feel this way? Is there anyone else out there who feels as I do? My family is trying to guilt me into accepting him, but I can’t. It’s not because of his greedy behavior, although that’s part of it. Have others had a similar experience? –

Sincerely Not His Mom Dear Sincerely: I’m print-

ing your letter because although many adoption reunions go well, not all of them do. If other birth mothers would like to share their experiences, I’m inviting them to do so. However, I do have this to offer: Do not allow yourself to be trapped into doing anything with which you are not comfortable. Your feelings may be based on the circumstances surrounding Fred’s birth. They also may result from your disappointment in his lack of character. While you always will be Fred’s birth mother, you are not his “mom.” That distinction belongs to the woman who raised him. Dear Abby: My brother is dating one of my employees. She has one of those “take charge” personalities. She’s

pushy and she’s trying to worm her way into the family. At work I can keep her at bay, but at family events she’s out of control. She insists on doing and cooking everything – including cleaning my mother’s house, which isn’t dirty, by the way. My older brothers’ significant others have noticed, but being the only daughter, I’m at my wits’ end. She won’t take “no thanks” for an answer. I am sick of her “I’ll get this, I’ve got it, it’s OK” attitude. I’m trying to keep my brother’s happiness in mind and not cause a scene, but I’m afraid I’ll lose it one of these days. Any advice? – I,

Too, Can Organize A Picnic Dear I, Too: Has it oc-

curred to you that your brother’s girlfriend (your employee) may be desperate to be accepted, which is why she’s going to such great lengths to please? My advice is to relax, because her efforts are no reflection on you. I’m sure you have done your part at many family functions. If her efforts are alienating the other significant others, perhaps they can stage an “intervention” and get her to calm down. In the meantime, hang onto your temper.

Dear Dr. K: When a patient has one or more blocked coronary arteries, how does a doctor decide whether to perform an angioplasty or bypass surgery? Dear Reader: Let me explain how your heart works before I answer your question. Your heart doesn’t just pump blood – it needs blood to survive. Every organ in your body needs a constant energy supply. And every organ is making waste material and needs a “garbage collector” to take the waste away. Both the energy supply and the waste removal come from the blood that constantly runs through every organ. The heart is the muscle that constantly pumps blood through every organ in your body. Like any organ, the heart also needs energy and waste disposal. The heart gets its blood supply from coronary arteries. These arteries can get clogged by cholesterolfilled plaques of atherosclerosis, causing a permanent obstruction. Such a permanent obstruction can cause symptoms such as pain (the condition called angina), or a weaker heartbeat when the heart is forced to work harder than normal. The heart works harder during exercise and during times when people get

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff angry or their blood pressure is high (for example, because they are not taking their blood pressure medication). Medicines can help reduce the work of the heart. An aggressively healthy lifestyle, over many months, can shrink the size of the obstructing plaques. However, sometimes a permanent obstruction from a plaque needs to be eliminated promptly. The two main treatments are angioplasty plus stenting, or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. • Angioplasty plus stenting: A small balloon wrapped in a collapsed stent is inserted into a blood vessel in the groin or arm and maneuvered into the heart. When the balloon is inflated, it flattens the cholesterol-filled plaque that was restricting blood flow. The balloon is deflated and removed. The stent remains behind to prop open the artery. • CABG: During openheart surgery, an artery or vein taken from elsewhere in the body is stitched in place to reroute blood around the blocked artery. The choice between angio-

plasty and bypass depends on a number of factors. I spoke to my colleague, interventional cardiologist Dr. Donald E. Cutlip, for more details. When all three of the heart’s coronary arteries are narrowed or blocked, bypass is the better choice. (The doctor might make an exception if a patient is too frail to undergo surgery.) Also, for patients with diabetes, CABG is generally superior to angioplasty. When fewer than three coronary arteries are affected, the choice depends on which arteries are involved. The left anterior descending artery (LAD) feeds blood to more of the heart muscle than the other two coronary arteries. When the LAD is narrowed or blocked, bypass surgery usually is best. With colleagues at Orca Health, we recently have published inexpensive iBooks for the Apple iPad and iPhone on angioplasty and stent, and on CABG surgery. They show you – with videos – what happens during these procedures. You can learn more about them at my website, www.askdoctork.com.

MAHONEY FINDS HOME ONSTAGE AFTER ‘FRASIER’

THINGS

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

Thursday, March 13, 2014 • Section C • Page 8

CHICAGO – John Mahoney is known to most TV fans for playing Frasier Crane’s father on the series “Frasier,” but since the end of the show, the actor has spent much of his time pursuing roles on stage. The Tony-winning actor’s latest stint is at Northlight Theatre in the Chicago suburb of Skokie, where he stars in “Chapatti.” The piece is by Irish playwright Christian O’Reilly and tells the story of a man living in Dublin with his dog named Chapatti. It runs March 7 to April 13 before going to Galway, Ireland.

Zimmerman’s parents sue Barr over Twitter post

SANFORD, Fla. – George Zimmerman’s parents are suing actress Roseanne Barr in Florida, claiming a Twitter post she made listing their address and telephone number forced them to flee their home. Robert and Gladys Zimmerman filed the lawsuit on Monday. It seeks undisclosed damages for emotional distress and invasion of privacy. The Zimmermans said they were forced to flee their home after Barr posted to Twitter about a month after their son fatally shot Trayvon Martin in February 2012. They also claim they were forced into hiding. Zimmerman was acquitted last summer of any crime in the shooting of the 17-year-old Martin. The case inspired protests nationwide and raised questions about gun control laws and race.

Actor Pine charged with DUI

WELLINGTON, New Zealand – Actor Chris Pine, known for playing Captain Kirk in the “Star Trek” movies, has been charged with drunken driving in New Zealand. The 33-year-old is due to make his first court appearance in the case Monday, court officials said Wednesday. New Zealand police said in a statement a 33-year-old was charged March 1 with driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit, which in New Zealand is .08 percent. Police did not name the man, but said he was stopped during a routine early-morning check near the South Island town of Methven. Pine’s agent and publicist could not be reached immediately for comment. Pine has been in New Zealand filming the movie “Z for Zachariah,” which is due for release next year. Much of the filming has taken place on the South Island’s picturesque Banks Peninsula. Casey Crawford, manager of the Blue Pub, a Methven bar, told Christchurch newspaper, The Press, Pine was attending a celebration at the bar on the night of Feb. 28 to mark the end of filming and was accompanied by his Icelandic girlfriend, Iris Bjork Johannesdottir. Pine was drinking beer and did not appear intoxicated before leaving at about 2:30 a.m., Crawford said, adding that Pine had obliged locals who wanted their photo taken with him. “He looked like he just wanted to spend time with his partner,” Crawford told the newspaper. Crawford said the party was well controlled. “Chris was really good. They were a good crowd, the whole lot of them,” he said. Crawford said the bar offered patrons transportation home.

Cameraman recounts Crocodile Hunter’s last moments

SYDNEY – Australia’s famed “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin knew he was dying after a massive stingray stabbed him in the chest hundreds of times, the only witness to the fatal 2006 attack said in his first detailed public account of the beloved conservationist’s death. “We’re saying to him things like, ‘Think of your kids, Steve – hang on, hang on, hang on,’” Justin Lyons, Irwin’s longtime cameraman, told Australia’s Studio 10 morning show this week. “And he just sort of calmly looked up at me and said, ‘I’m dying.’ And that was the last thing he said.” Over the years Lyons has said little publicly about the fatal encounter with the stingray. Now, he said, he wants to clarify exactly how Irwin died. Lyons still vividly remembers the day he lost his friend. The two were shooting a wildlife documentary when they spotted an 8-foot-wide stingray. They had been filming the creature for several minutes in chest-deep water and wanted to get one more shot of the stingray swimming away. Suddenly, the animal began wildly stabbing Irwin with the barb on its tail, Lyons said.

“I didn’t even know it had caused any damage,” Lyons said. “It wasn’t until I panned the camera back that Steve was standing in a huge pool of blood that I realized something had gone wrong.” The crew threw him into their boat and put pressure on the gash over Irwin’s heart, which was seeping blood, and Lyons performed CPR. But the damage was too severe. The 44-year-old died later that day.

History network plans miniseries on birth of Texas

NEW YORK – The History network is planning another big miniseries after the breakout success of “Hatfields & McCoys” and is even bringing back one of that project’s stars. Bill Paxton will star as Sam Houston in “Texas Rising,” an eighthour miniseries that tells of Texas’ revolution against Mexico and the rise of the Texas Rangers. History announced Wednesday the series is planned to air next year. Brendan Fraser and Ray Liotta also will appear in “Texas Rising.”

Book of Winfrey columns to be published in fall

NEW YORK – Oprah Winfrey’s latest book project is a collection of magazine columns by a writer she knows quite well. Oprah Winfrey. “What I Know for Sure” features the monthly essays Winfrey has written for O, the Oprah Magazine over the past 14 years. Flatiron Books, a new nonfiction imprint of Macmillan, announced Wednesday “What I Know for Sure” will come out Sept. 2. It will be the imprint’s first release. According to Flatiron, the book will be organized around such themes as joy, gratitude and possibility. Winfrey has said she named her column “What I Know for Sure” after film critic Gene Siskel asked her “What do you know for sure?” during an interview. She has called the columns a way of “taking stock” of her life. Winfrey will write the book’s introduction.

Silo, weather present challenges to remodel project Jerry Kuyper ALGONQUIN - Joe Ward believes he has a good thing going. He has a childhood friend who is a real estate agent. They are business partners and their partnership is simple. The friend, Jacob Bartlett of the Schaumburg area, looks for distressed or slightly better properties that could use some improvement. Ward, who is a remodeler with a Legend Exteriors & Construction office in Roselle, does the remodeling. When com-

pleted, the remodeled project is put on the market and hopefully sold. Profits, if any, are shared by the two partners. Such a property was found and, after the sale closing in late 2013, Ward went to work on the newly purchased property at 1155 Cary Road. “I bought it, closed on it for right around $60,000 in October. It was a foreclosure, a bankowned property. We got a steal on it,” he said. The wooded half-acre property included a 3,000 or 3,500-square-foot two-story with a habitable silo. Taking the silo into account, the square footage encompasses four bedrooms (possibly five

The two-story around the silo was built in the 1970s and the silo also was remodeled [into living quarters] in the 1970s,” Ward said. “We are assuming a farm was here at one time. “It’s a historical property and everyone [in Algonquin] knows about it.” His plans to improve the value of the property were set in motion by early November.

• SILO

Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com

Continued from page E1 At the time, he said, “I will be restoring this house with shakes, stone accents and many other unique and beautiful things for this very unique house that is kind of a landmark in Algonquin. “What we are doing is remodeling the whole house, interior and exterior. The first two floors of the silo are built into the house and each additional story [there are seven in the silo], there is a bath or a bedroom. And at the top will be a firepit room with a smokestack, an observation area with a nice view of the forest outside and one of the highest points in the area.” The partners hoped remodeling expenses would not surpass $70,000. The plan was to put the remodeled property back on the market in late December at an asking price of $200,000. If all went well, that would leave a comfortable profit margin of, give or take a thousand dollars, $70,000. To see any profit, he had to work fast with the remodeling. “We will put it on the market when done, right before Christmas,” he forecast in November. Ward had his work cut out for him. “It [house, silo] was pretty beat up, not horrible, but very dated and I assumed had not been lived in for years. It was a combination of beat-up old carpets and tiles. We pretty much gutted it, and we [put] in new hardwood floors, tile and carpeting. The cement block silo also deserved a facelift. Otherwise, the house exterior is vinyl shake siding. Instead of a project completed by Christmas 2013, a more realistic time frame turned out to be spring 2014. An abnormal winter’s cold and snow forced a revision to Ward’s remodeling and sales schedule. The silo also was a challenge. In an email last December, Ward outlined reasons for a remodeling delay and why a Christmas deadline would not be met. “The exterior of the silo took a little longer than we planned. It is 70 feet tall and it needed to be patched, painted, windows, stone work and roofing work [done]. “The original 85-foot boom lift was able to do everything but the roof work. I didn’t take into account for the angle which made it too short for the roof repairs. So we had to get a 100-foot lift out there, and with weather and everything it was just a real hassle. But it’s finally done! “We are starting the remaining exterior work tomorrow, that is siding, trim, gutters, windows, etc. and haven’t done much with the inside yet. But I think we will get a significant amount done in December, and then it should probably wrap up in mid/late January I would guess.”

The silo attached to a house at 1155 Cary Road in Algonquin has a full bath. In a Jan. 6, 2014, email Ward updated progress. “The rehab is just taking awhile and this weather isn’t helping. I would guess we will be another four to six weeks of construction [until] finished.” Two days later, he emailed again. “Definitely, just a slooooowwww project. Thanks for your patience.” Easter is around the corner and appeared to be a more realistic remodel completion date of Ward’s silo house. Ward held out hope for an earlier date. “It has taken us a lot longer to rehab then planned,” he wrote in a March 3 email. “We are planning to be finished within the next week or two and put it up on the market within the next two weeks.” With the marketing comes a higher price tag. “We did a very extensive and high end rehab, so we are into it for a good bit over $200,000, actually,” his March 3 email continued. “So we are shooting for closer to $300,000, probably even more. This house is going to be one of a kind!” In business four years, Ward said he and his partner and friend do about two or three projects a year. “This is, believe it or not, the coolest one I have ever done.” Besides his remodeling business, Ward operates Titan Real Estate Group in Schaumburg. For information, call 630-915-8286 or email josephjohnward@gmail.com. With the silo saga coming to an end, Ward has big plans for the remainder of 2014. “We have a very interesting one in Inverness right now that was being taxed incorrectly because it is on 7 acres of land so it was being

The seventh and top story of the silo is the viewing room. It includes a vented firepit. taxed for 7 acres at a ridiculous amount. However, only one of the 7 acres is buildable, so we had to go through a battle but got the taxes down significantly. “We will either be selling it for the land or rehabbing the property.” And on a different note, his other company, Legend Exteriors & Construction, has done storm restoration work in McHenry, Lake, Kane, DuPage and Cook counties, and will do so again in April “It is a very interesting business where people can get their exteriors completely replaced [roofing, siding, gutters, etc.] due to hail and wind damage that they didn’t even know existed and was reducing the value of their homes.” And so Ward promises more stories in the months ahead.

George Bernard Shaw said, “I never resist temptation, because I have found that things that are bad for me do not tempt me.” At the bridge table, though, it can be difficult to recognize bids and plays that will prove to be bad for you. In this deal, for example, defending against a contract of four spades, West leads the club ace: three, two, eight. What should he do next? The auction was straightforward. North made a threespade game-invitational limit raise, showing 10-12 support points (high-card points plus shortage points, not that he had any of those here) and eight losers (one spade, one heart, three diamonds and three clubs). South had an easy raise to game. One of the most irresistible temptations for a defender is to cash a winner. Here, less experienced players would take the club king at trick two, then look around for inspiration. But declarer would be in clover, losing only two clubs and one heart. Instead, West should trust

his partner’s trick-one signal. East dropped the two, his lowest card being discouraging. (If you and your partner use upside-down signals, East should play the nine at trick one.) This denies the queen (unless he has exactly queentwo-doubleton, which is very unlikely). So West should shift at trick two, hoping his partner can get on lead early enough to push a club through South. Here, any lead other than a spade at trick two defeats the contract, assuming East leads a club when he gets in with his heart ace.

Thursday, March 13, 2014 • Page E9

TODAY - Refrain from taking unnecessary risks in the coming year. Be methodical and systematic in your efforts. Acting in haste could cause you to miss some important details. If you go slowly, you’ll be able to consider all factors as well as take advantage of opportunities that will lead to success. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Financial or career gains could be heading your way. Approach your boss for a raise or send out your resume. Discussing opportunities with someone you’ve previously worked with will pay off. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Consider reconnecting with an old friend and take advantage of any travel deals that turn up. Romance is on the rise. A positive personal change is apparent. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Look after your interests. Some information you receive will be inaccurate. To save costly delays, you should verify every piece of information before moving forward. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Change is in the air. You’d be wise to check out real estate opportunities. Find a property or location you are interested in and make some inquiries. Relocating now could prove beneficial professionally. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Keep your dealings with others to a minimum. Someone will consider your goals to be unrealistic. Don’t waste time trying to persuade others to see things your way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Put your creativity to good use. Channel your energy into a project that interests you. If you do something that you find stimulating, you will make new friends along the way. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your plans are gaining momentum. It’s important to keep up the pace if you want to avoid being sidetracked by someone trying to outmaneuver you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If you keep an eye out, you will find an attractive deal. Muster up some courage and go after your dreams. You are likely to redeem some surprising benefits, as well as some recognition. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You will run into several pitfalls if you don’t take measures to ensure your success. Be happy with the results you achieve, however long it takes you to get them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Let your adventurous side take over. Feel free to try something new, but don’t overestimate your abilities. If you let people with experience lead the way, you will reach your goal. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Some of your relationships may have grown stale or unfulfilling. Take a step forward, and look for new people, places and pastimes to stimulate your mind and get you back in the game. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It’s time to effect some necessary changes. Whether you have to make an adjustment to your financial, intellectual or physical situation, it’s a good day to take action.
