Testimony during the weeklong trial revealed that once at Oliver’s home, he took her to his basement, threatened her and beat her. Back upstairs, Oliver recorded the sexual encounter, evidence that was played for jurors.

The case he pleaded guilty to Monday was similar to the one presented at trial. He met a woman online, agreed to meet for sex in exchange for money and raped her back at his home. Between his conviction last month and guilty plea, Oliver faces between 20 and 93 years in prison. The two sentences

CHICAGO – The contenders for Illinois governor crisscrossed the state Monday on the final day of campaigning before the primary elections, with a wealthy venture capitalist trying to fend off three longtime Republican lawmakers to advance to a likely fall matchup with Democratic Gov.

Still, Hardiman, Dillard and Brady – who lost the 2010 governor’s race to Quinn – set out statewide with final pitches. “If we do what we did last time, we’ll win this primary and go on to beat Pat Quinn,” said Bloomington Republican Brady, whose scheduled

PRESIDENT AND PUBLISHER John Rung jrung@shawmedia.com 815-459-4040

Dan Rutherford snooping went too far Way back in 1992, I did a story about Dan Rutherford’s first run for the Illinois House of Representatives. The House Democrats back then quietly were spreading rumors about Rutherford’s private life, hoping the conservative, rural district would refuse to support someone who they said seemed to be gay. Without mentioning Rutherford’s name, I wrote that I knew the district pretty well. I didn’t reveal it in the story at the time, but I was raised on a farm in Iroquois County. I wrote all those years ago that the Democrats were deluding themselves. Those voters weren’t just conservatives, they were dyed-in-the-wool Republicans. They’d take a Republican over a Democrat any day of the week. All the Democrats were doing was embarrassing themselves, I wrote. Rutherford won, of course. I remembered that story when the Sun-Times and the Tribune started

VIEWS Rich Miller publishing “exposés” about how Rutherford had a habit of staying in the same hotel room or apartment with his male travel aide on some government and political trips. As with the Democrats almost 22 years ago, the newspapers never should’ve done that and should’ve instead risen above such nonsense. The real angle here is that insiders say the young man in question was not comfortable with the arrangement. He has not, to my knowledge, alleged that Rutherford did anything specifically untoward. The story buttresses accounts that Rutherford puts some very weird pressure on some of his employees. But this young man’s name was

dragged through the mud by the two largest newspapers in the state. It wasn’t fair to him, or to Rutherford. Ten years after I wrote that first story in 1992, I was talking with Rutherford about a news item in his local paper about how he’d used campaign money for his legislative office expenses. The expenses appeared perfectly legal, but he was one of only a handful of people doing it at the time, so he caught some heat for it. I suggested to Rutherford this story might come back to haunt him if he attempted to move up to statewide office (Rutherford has been running for governor almost since he could walk). Rutherford looked at me and said, “Rich, you and I both know that if they come after me about something it won’t be about something like this.” How right he was. Rutherford’s campaign says a Chicago Tribune reporter showed up at the home of Rutherford’s mother at

EDITOR Jason Schaumburg 815-459-4122 jschaumburg@shawmedia.com

9:30 one night to ask her highly personal questions about her son. The campaign also confirmed reports I’d heard that the paper pursued the parents of Rutherford’s travel aide to demand to know if their son was gay after reports surfaced that the two men had shared rooms together. And the campaign confirmed the Tribune pursued the aide’s ex-girlfriend with the same questions. Look, Rutherford made some mistakes. But staking out a guy’s mom late at night and hounding the parents and ex-girlfriend of an employee with horribly inappropriate accusations seems way over the line to me. I always thought we were above the disgusting Hollywood paparazzi snooping level here in Illinois. I suppose I was wrong.

crew early March 8. The plane was carrying 154 Chinese passengers when someone on board deliberately diverted it from its route to Beijing less than one hour into the flight. A massive search operation has yet to find any trace of the plane. Chinese Ambassador to Malaysia Huang Huikang said background checks on Chinese nationals didn’t uncover any evidence suggesting they were involved in hijacking or an act of terrorism against the plane, according

to state news agency Xinhua. Malaysian police are investigating the pilots and ground engineers of the plane and have asked intelligence agencies from countries with passengers on board to carry out background checks on those passengers. Malaysian authorities said that someone on board the flight switched off two vital pieces of communication equipment, allowing the plane to fly almost undetected. Satellite data shows it

might have ended up somewhere in a giant arc stretching from Central Asia to the southern reaches of the Indian Ocean. Huikang also said that Chinese authorities had begun searching for the plane on its territory. Malaysian police said they are investigating the possibility of hijacking, sabotage, terrorism or issues related to the mental health of the pilots or anyone else on board but have yet to give any update on what they have uncovered.

Army general pleads guilty on lesser charges The ASSOCIATED PRESS FORT BRAGG, N.C. – An Army general who admitted to improper relationships with three subordinates appeared to choke up Monday as he told a judge that he’d failed the female captain who had leveled the most serious accusations against him. Hours later, she took the stand to testify about how she can’t trust people and fears her superiors are always going to take advantage of her in the aftermath of the three-year affair.

As he pleaded guilty, Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair’s voice halted when telling the judge why he was pleading guilty to mistreating her in a deal that included the dropping of sexual assault charges. “I failed her as a leader and as a mentor and caused harm to her emotional state,” Sinclair said, his voice catching as he read from a statement. He asked the judge for a break and took a long drink of water before continuing to read. “I created a situation over time that caused her emotional harm,” Sinclair said, seat-

ed in his dress blue uniform. It was the first public show of regret or sadness for a 27-year veteran who had betrayed little emotion in court hearings over the past year. The judge accepted Sin- Brig.

8BRIEFS Illinois offers plan to fix youth detention issues CHICAGO – A plan to address inadequate conditions at the state’s juvenile detention centers is being reviewed by a federal judge. The plan was submitted jointly by the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice and the ACLU of Illinois. It addresses the slew of problems outlined by a panel of experts in an investigation of the state’s six juvenile detention centers. It would mandate a five-hour school day for incarcerated youths. It also stipulates student-teacher ratios of no higher than 10 to one in classes. The plan would ban the use of solitary confinement for disciplinary reasons and would require the hiring of a psychologist to oversee services for all six facilities. Mental health and security staffing levels would be increased. The plan’s rollout would be enforced by court-appointed experts if it’s approved.

Charges pending for man after standoff in Chicago CHICAGO – Charges are pending against a Georgia man who held police at bay for more than eight hours during a standoff on Chicago’s iconic Lake Shore Drive. Police said Monday that the man was in custody, but his name hasn’t been released. Sunday’s standoff prompted the shutdown of the busy road, which wasn’t reopened until before dawn Monday. The man was wanted in connection with a murder earlier this month in Hampton, Ga., about 30 miles from Atlanta.

required him to register as a sex offender. The sentencing hearing for Sinclair, the former deputy commander of the 82nd Airborne Division, began Monday afternoon and was expected to last until at least the next day. As many as two-dozen witnesses could be called and Sinclair’s lawyer said he will either give a statement or testify. Ultimately, the judge will give Sinclair a sentence that can’t exceed terms in the agreement struck between defense lawyers and military at-

torneys over the weekend, but has not been made public. The legal agreement is likely to require a punishment far less severe than the maximum penalties of 21½ years in prison and dismissal from the Army. Sinclair’s lawyer suggested he might walk out of court a free man, but without a career and perhaps with hundreds of thousands of dollars less in pension benefits. “I hope he is permitted to retire at a reduced rank and can go home to his family,” defense attorney Richard Scheff said before court started Mon-

day. Sinclair, 51, had been accused of twice forcing the female captain under his command to perform oral sex during the three-year extramarital affair. The Associated Press does not generally identify those who say they were victims of sexual assault. The married general pleaded guilty earlier this month to having improper relationships with three subordinate officers, including the captain. He also pleaded guilty to adultery, which is a crime in the military.

Scientists spot evidence for universe’s early growth spurt The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – Researchers say they have spotted evidence that a split-second after the Big Bang, the newly formed universe ballooned out at a pace so astonishing that it left behind ripples in the fabric of the cosmos. If confirmed, experts said, the discovery would be a major advance in the understanding of the early universe. Although many scientists already believed that an initial, extremely rapid growth spurt happened, they have long sought the type of evidence cited in the new study. The results reported Monday emerged after researchers peered into the faint light that remains from the Big Bang of nearly 14 billion years ago. The discovery “gives us a window on the universe at the very beginning,” when it was far less than one-trillionth of a second old, said theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss of Arizona State University, who was not involved in the work. “It’s just amazing,” Krauss

said. “You can see back to the beginning of time.” Marc Kamionkowski, a theoretical physicist at Johns Hopkins University who did not participate in the research, said the finding is “not just a home run. It’s a grand slam.” He and other experts said the results must be confirmed by other observations, a standard caveat in science. Right after the Big Bang, the universe was a hot soup John Kovac of particles. It took about 380,000 years to cool enough that the particles could form atoms, then stars and galaxies. Billions of years later, planets formed from gas and dust that were orbiting stars. The universe has continued to spread out. Krauss said he thinks the new results could rank among the greatest breakthroughs in astrophysics over the last 25 years, such as the Nobel prize-winning discovery that

the universe’s expansion is accelerating. Monday’s findings were announced by a team that included researchers from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, the University of Minnesota, Stanford University, the California Institute of Technology and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The team plans to submit its conclusions to a scientific journal, said its leader, John Kovac of Harvard. Astronomers scanned about 2 percent of the sky for three years with a telescope at the South Pole, where the air is exceptionally dry. They were looking for a specific pattern in light waves within the faint microwave glow left over from the Big Bang. The pattern has long been considered evidence of rapid growth, known as inflation. Kovac called it “the smoking gun signature of inflation.” The reported detection suggests that “inflation has sent us a telegram,” Kamionkowski said.

Russia recognizes Crimean vote for independence JIM HEINTZ The Associated Press KIEV, Ukraine – Ignoring the toughest sanctions against Moscow since the end of the Cold War, Russian President Vladimir Putin recognized Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula as an “independent and sovereign country” on Monday, a bold challenge to Washington that escalates one of Europe’s worst security crises in years. The brief decree posted on the Kremlin’s website came just hours after the United States and the European Union announced asset freezes and other sanctions against Russian and Ukrainian officials involved in the Crimean crisis. President Barack Obama warned that more would come if Russia didn’t stop interfering in Ukraine, and Putin’s move clearly forces his hand. The West has struggled to find leverage to force Moscow to back off in the Ukraine turmoil, of which Crimea is only a part. Moscow showed no signs of flinching in the dispute that has roiled Ukraine since Russian troops took effective control of the strategic Black Sea peninsula last month and supported the Sunday referendum that overwhelmingly called for annexation by Russia. Recognizing Crimea as independent would be an interim step in absorbing the region. Crimea had been part of Russia since the 18th century, until Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev transferred it to Ukraine in 1954 and both Russians and Crimea’s majority ethnic Russian population see annexation as correcting a historic insult. Ukraine’s turmoil – which began in November with a

wave of protests against President Viktor Yanukovych and accelerated after he fled to Russia in late February – has become Europe’s most severe security crisis in years. Russia, like Yanukovych himself, characterizes his ouster as a coup, and alleges the new authorities are fascist-minded and likely to crack down on Ukraine’s ethnic Russian population. Pro-Russia demonstrations have broken out in several cities in eastern Ukraine near the Russian border, where the Kremlin has been massing troops. Fearing that Russia is prepared to risk violence to make a land-grab, the West has consistently spoken out against Russia’s actions but has run into a wall of resistance from Moscow. Reacting to Monday’s sanctions, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov declared that they were “a reflection of a pathological unwillingness to acknowledge reality and a desire to impose on everyone one-sided and unbalanced approaches that absolutely ignore reality.” “I think the decree of the president of the United States was written by some joker,” Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, one of the individuals hit by the sanctions, said on his Twitter account. The White House imposed asset freezes on seven Russian officials, including Putin’s close ally Valentina Matvienko, who is speaker of the upper house of parliament, and Vladislav Surkov, one of Putin’s top ideological aides. The Treasury Department also targeted Yanukovych, Crimean leader Sergei Aksyonov and two other top figures.

Why you should vote By now, you probably are a tad tired of us telling you how important it is to vote in today’s election. We don’t apologize for the repetition of the message. It is important for Americans to learn about the candidates and cast a ballot. As a bit of a reprieve, however, we thought we’d step aside and let others tell you why you should get to know the candiNote to readers dates and vote: “Bad officials The Northwest Herald are elected by publishes this editorial every good citizens election day to remind readers who do not vote,” of their duty to vote. drama critic and editor George Jean Nathan said. “If you have been voting for politicians who promise to give you goodies at someone else’s expense, then you have no right to complain when they take your money and give it to someone else, including themselves,” economist Thomas Sowell said. “The ballot is stronger than the bullet,” President Abraham Lincoln said. “The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all,” President John F. Kennedy said. “Those who stay away from the election think that one vote will do no good: ‘Tis but one step more to think one vote will do no harm,” essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson said. “The vote is the most powerful instrument ever devised by man for breaking down injustice and destroying the terrible walls which imprison men because they are different from other men,” President Lyndon B. Johnson said. “To make democracy work, we must be a nation of participants, not simply observers. One who does not vote has no right to complain,” author Louis L’Amour said. “Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education,” President Franklin D. Roosevelt said. Said President Emeritus of the University of Notre Dame Theodore Hesburgh: “Voting is a civic sacrament.” Don’t just take our word for it. Please vote today.

Not time to cut Lakes funds Mother Nature gets credit for a big assist in the fight to keep the Great Lakes healthy, with ice coverage now topping 92 percent for the first time in nearly four decades. The long, cold winter means the lakes are far above the 50-60 percent ice coverage that they have been experiencing in recent years, and that should mean higher lake levels this spring and summer. It’s a step in the right direction but not a complete recovery from the evaporation that has dropped lake levels to near-historic lows as of late. But the lakes won’t get as much help from Washington this year if President Barack Obama’s proposed budget holds. Since 2010, the administration has asked for $300 million annually to fund the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. But the fiscal 2015 budget calls for cutting the allocation by $25 million. The reason is simple: across-the-board belttightening. Most programs got a cut of some kind in the president’s budget. We suppose that’s reasonable by financial measures. But the Great Lakes are this region’s most significant environmental treasure and priority. If ever there were a time to maintain or boost preservation efforts, it would be now. Detroit Free Press

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Easier to tax To the Editor: Let me get this straight. The idea now put forth by a watchdog group to bail this state out of its current fiscal crisis brought about by misspending and corrupt individuals is to renege on a promise by the governor, tax social security and tax pensions. Retired individuals and couples on fixed incomes will bear the brunt of this fix, which might be popular for those not on fixed incomes. How clever and disgusting. Again, instead of attacking the real problems and issues, it’s easier to tax those that can least afford it. Shame on those that came up with this plan and any elected official that supports it. Our watchdog group has become an attack dog aimed at seniors. Jerry Watters Algonquin

Remember the $50M To the Editor: So here we are – $100 billion in debt, and the governor sidesteps the Legislature and gives $50 million to hand-picked Chicago aldermen to fight high crime in their areas. What’s wrong with this? No documentation as to how the aldermen were selected. No documentation to how the funds were used. No documentation as to who got the funds, etc. Worst crime areas not selected. How can this happen? Ask our president. He bypasses Congress all the time.

And after all, they both got their training in Illinois. Lee Stevens Crystal Lake

Truth about morality To the Editor: I recently saw a letter to the editor titled “Put God in schools.” In it, posting the Ten Commandments in every classroom and teaching children to observe them was suggested to give kids morality. I am a 17-year-old who is an atheist. I have morals. I don’t drink. I have never killed anyone. I have never raped anyone. I’ve never stolen a penny from my parents. But how is this possible? I’m an atheist. I have no god. The reason being is that God and religion are unnecessary for morality. The letter writer’s argument essentially states the only difference between her and, say, Jeffery Dahmer or Ted Bundy is a belief based off a book written by Bronze age, genocidal, slave owning, misogynistic maniacs who thought the earth was flat.

of our party as representing our future. Joe Walsh’s record is appalling. He is apparently so fiscally conservative that he does not believe in paying his own bills or child support. His comments on rape and immigrants are well-known and are the epitome of everything that is wrong with the Republican Party today. Political conservatism once meant limiting the influence of government in citizens’ lives and taking a considerate, measured approach to changing social institutions. It should not be about tearing the walls of our society down. If Joe Walsh is the future of the McHenry County Republican Party, then there is no future for our party, and that is truly a shame.

emails to the departing CEO, during a severance negotiation.” I would like to clarify the record for your readers. As the acting general counsel who answered to the entire board of directors, I was tasked with investigating that allegation last summer. After reviewing various correspondence and applicable law, Metra’s ethics officer and I concluded that Schaffer did not violate confidentiality or fiduciary standards when he forwarded certain emails to the former CEO. Many of the alleged confidential documents were, in fact, public documents such as ordinances and meeting minutes or documents where the former CEO was already carbon copied. I also asked an outside law firm not involved in the matter to review the issues, and the firm concluded the same. Finally, I asked the law firm that worked on the severance negotiations to opine on whether the documents had a negative impact on the negotiations. It did not. Sue-Ann Rosen Metra general counsel

Overlooked homeless often the most difficult to help During my 20-plus years of assisting McHenry County residents who are homeless, I’ve found that people often are surprised to hear that homelessness exists in McHenry County. After their shock subsides they often ask, “Who becomes homeless and why?” In the past, my response was just what you might expect: Homeless people were typically young, single unemployed men who usually had drug or alcohol addictions, or mental illness, or problems with the law. And they often had a combination of all of those factors. Women became homeless, too, but they were typically young, single mothers who simply could not afford a place of their own. Some of my prior assessments

still hold true today, but now things have changed. Job layoffs, high housing costs, expensive gasoline, inflated grocery prices and more have contributed toward the inability of some to maintain stable housing. Of course, young, single men and young, single mothers still become homeless, but now it touches people who never before have experienced homelessness: married couples; older, single adults; and even the elderly. Many have jobs, although most have experienced a decrease in their earnings. Many are college educated. Most have no complicating social issues. But with the rise in housing costs and the decline in earning power, they just cannot afford to keep a roof over their heads. Often their friends and families

FIGHTING HOMELESSNESS

Sue Rose are in the same situation, so they cannot afford to offer assistance. Those of us who work in social services will tell you it is generally easier for us to find assistance for those who are younger than 19 or older than 62. But that large in-between age group is difficult to assist. They are the “overlooked homeless” as they are too old for youth services and too young for most senior services. They are frightened because they never have been through this before. They are embarrassed because they never thought they’d have to ask for help.

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

They don’t want to stay in a shelter, and they probably don’t need a lot of the social services offered there anyway. They simply don’t have enough income to keep a roof over their head. So what is being done about it? The McHenry County Continuum of Care to End Homelessness meets at 9 a.m. every second Thursday at the McHenry County Government Center Annex building in Woodstock to discuss issues surrounding homelessness. Whenever we find a gap in a service area, we try to find a way to offer that needed service. The Continuum of Care obtains funding for its members so the needed services can be offered to people who are homeless. Several of the member agencies are changing

their focus from emergency shelter to permanent supportive housing. This will help some of the people in that overlooked age group, but there is not yet enough funding to help all of them. The Continuum of Care has been in existence in a variety of forms since 1996. We’ve come a long way, but we still have a long way to go. If you are interested in fighting homelessness, come and join us. Meetings are open to the public, and we can always use more help. • Sue Rose has been the community service director of McHenry County Housing Authority since 1996. She has been a member of the McHenry County Continuum of Care to End Homelessness since the day that it began 18 years ago.

POLICE COMPLETE SPECIAL PATROLS CRYSTAL LAKE – Crystal Lake police issued no tickets for impaired driving during a five-day St. Patrick’s traffic enforcement campaign that ended Monday. The department took part in the statewide Drive to Survive campaign and issued 71 citations to 63 motorists, but none were found to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The increased enforcement resulted in 19 safety belt; one child restraint; six uninsured driving; 15 electronic device usage; 20 speeding; and 10 moving offense citations. Two people were arrested for driving on a suspended license while another was charged with possession of a controlled substance. The campaign was federally funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation’s Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket programs.

Truck at issue in Hebron Two trustees say they were unaware of payment to village consultant By SHAWN SHINNEMAN sshinneman@shawmedia.com HEBRON – Village President John Jacobson says trustees approved the final of four payments to a village consultant Monday night – money originally deferred toward a village-owned truck – but at least two trustees were unaware of the measure shortly after the Village Board meeting. Jacobson and Mike Miller have said they’d agreed to use the 1990 Ford F-350 as partial payment for Miller’s time consulting with the

village’s public works department – a four-month period that started in the fall. Village payroll records obtained by the Northwest Herald through a Freedom of Information Act request revealed Miller John was paid in October, Jacobson November and January, but not December. But using a village payment toward the purchase of a village truck ultimately needed trustee approval. The measure has never come before

the Village Board, although the sale of the truck did appear on the agenda of a later canceled special meeting in early March. After Monday night’s meeting, Jacobson said Miller has withdrawn his interest in the truck for the time being. He said Miller’s missing payment from December was approved by village trustees when they approved the accounts payable. But the payment isn’t on the accounts payable document provided in the board packet, and village Trustees Andrew Georgi and Susan Ritzert – reached by phone after the

meeting – said if they approved Miller’s final payment at the meeting, they weren’t aware beforehand. “I don’t remember seeing any payment to him on any of the bills,” Georgi said. Each wondered whether it had been included in payroll numbers – which aren’t broken down by individual employees when provided to the board. They said they hadn’t been told new information on Miller’s interest, or lack thereof, in the truck.

Lakewood officials developing new business plan for RedTail Golf Club By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com LAKEWOOD – Months after reversing course on a potential sale of RedTail Golf Club, village leaders are developing a business plan to increase profits and improve the course’s value. Clubhouse General Manager Chris Neuhart along with village Trustee Gene Furey and help from other board members developed a 20-page business plan focused on increasing leagues, events and memberships to boost revenue. The plan includes some modest growth goals for the few solidified leagues at the course and more aggressive growth in developmental programs and new leagues and events course officials plan to roll out this year. The average revenue per round fell from $44.20 in fiscal 2003-04 to $34.71 in 2012-13, though the course has maintained its volume of play between 29,000 and 30,000 annual rounds. The course’s assessed value peaked at $4.5 million in 2005 before the downturn

in the economy and industry sank it to the current market value between $1.2 and $1.8 million. With no payments left to be made on the village’s 20-year bond entered in 1991, Furey said the village can reinvest in the course and increase both the value of the course and revenue per round with the right business plan. “The golf industry hit rock bottom two years ago, so we’ve already weathered the worst of the storm,” Furey said. “The goals have to be workable in a good business plan. We have to make sure we revisit every 60 days or so to make sure it’s moving in the right direction.” One of the first goals is to attain a 5 percent increase in membership revenue, which came in at $61,764 last

McHENRY – An economic development incentive tool designed to fill empty McHenry storefronts was added to the books Monday evening. The program outlines the application process for businesses looking to offset the costs of rehabbing existing buildings by abating a portion of the subsequently increased property taxes. City staff has approached other area taxing bodies about the program to see if they’d be receptive to signing on, said Deputy City Administrator Doug Martin, who oversees the city’s Community and Economic Development Department. Any abatement would require formal approval by the McHenry City Council and any other local taxing bodies affected, meaning Monday’s approval of the policy is not a financial commitment by the city or any other entity, he said. The terms of each proposed abatement would be based on that particular business and would include clawback provisions in case a business left before the end of the agreement. “This is just another avenue to try to get something to spark,” Alderman Richard Wimmer said. “It’s an effort that we’ve got to try. What else is there?” The policy has “more muscle” with the other entities involved, Alderman Bob Peterson added. Those other entities are

year on 60 memberships sold. Of existing leagues, officials want to target the Tuesday afternoon ladies’ league and Thursday night couples’ league as they see the most growth potential in those areas. New leagues and programs also could bolster revenue. The plan calls for a 9-hole floating league, allowing players who cannot commit to a set time each week to play a 9-hole round at anytime during the week and submit the scorecard. The clubhouse will keep track of all the results throughout the year to determine the winner. A team golf league pitting twosomes against each other also is set to debut on Tuesday nights. Youth golf also will be targeted as officials want to expand lessons and reach more people in the Crystal Lake Park District to increase that revenue by 15 percent. A $10 RedTail Golf Club Player Development Pass will allow people to play single holes for $1.25 after 6 p.m. Local companies also could become more involved as officials want to

SYCAMORE – In an intimate ceremony on their anniversary, Darla Cook and Jaelyn Paulsen became the first same-sex couple to be married in DeKalb County. “I love you so much, it is immeasurable,” Cook told Paulsen before sliding a ring on her finger Monday at Mayfield Congregational Church UCC in Sycamore. “Waiting for that special woman to call my wife and to call me her wife has been worth the wait.”

Couple wed on anniversary of commitment ceremony • MARRIAGE Continued from page B1 The couple has waited four years from their commitment ceremony March 17, 2010, and nearly three years from their civil union in June 2011 to be legally married. Two weeks ago, they decided not to wait anymore as other counties in the state started issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Cook and Paulsen became the first same-sex couple in DeKalb County to have a marriage license after filing a lawsuit last week challenging DeKalb County Clerk and Recorder Doug Johnson’s decision to wait until the law legalizing same-sex marriage goes into effect June 1 to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Johnson declined to mount a defense, and Thursday, Judge Ron Matekaitis accepted an agreed order allowing same-sex couples to apply for marriage licenses. The couple has been noted for making history by filing suit and as the first – and so far only – same-sex couple in DeKalb County to be married, but they said it never occurred to them what they were doing would be considered historic.

The McHenry Garden Club will award two scholarships, one $2,000 and one $1,000 scholarship to McHenry graduating seniors. The funds must be applied to tuition, fees and course materials for the semester awarded. Applicants must be a legal citizen, reside in the school district of McHenry and have graduated or be enrolled in their final year of high school. Primary consideration is given to applicants pursuing study in the fields of landscape architecture, horticulture, botany, forestry, agriculture or environmental science. Other fields of interest will be given consideration if the applicant demonstrates interest in pursuing ecological fields of study. A completed scholarship application and school transcripts should be submitted by April 25. For information, call Jane at 815-385-4822. Application forms are available at McHenry East and West

“You don’t really think about that part, you just know you’re fighting for what you should have,” Paulsen said. The Rev. Dr. Martha Brunell of Mayfield Congregational Church officiated the wedding, applauding the couple’s persistence and determination to open the door for others previously denied the right to marry.

“One of the most beautiful things about what you did was that you provided space for others, others you don’t know,” Brunell said. “So we celebrate the example you provided to us of what it means to love another person persistently and what it means to make a wider space for love in our world.” About 20 friends and fam-

ily members attended the ceremony, including Wilma Miranda, who knows the couple through church. Miranda and her partner, Rita, have a civil union and plan to get married, an option Miranda didn’t think she’d have in her lifetime. “You have this stake in the world you didn’t have before,” Miranda said.

in office, which ran March 8. Some trustees have grown frustrated with a village government that has seen more than a handful of departures under Jacobson – many who’ve been replaced with staffers of significantly less

experience. Trustees have raised questions about whether the truck has been in village control for months. Ritzert views the issue as a symbol of Jacobson’s deceiving leadership tactics.

Monday night, she said the news that Miller had withdrawn his offer was a surprise – but not necessarily a bad thing. “That’s fine with me,” she said. “I am still going to look into that truck.”

So far, staff has only discussed the program with administrators. “It seems like we’re a little quick on the draw with this,” Glab said. “I honestly feel that it’s a great program if it works, but I don’t want to have this out on our website and then find that some taxing bodies do have a problem with it.”

Glab also questioned whether the policy could be used with undeveloped property. While abatements can be approved for any property, Martin said the policy was specifically designed to address trouble spots, including the two remaining vacant big-box stores, the former Walmart and Sears stores. Because Walmart has certain restrictions on who it considers as potential buyers, the building may have to be divided up – a cost that gives some developers pause, Martin said. “It’s much more difficult to fill a large, vacant building than to build on a flat piece of ground with no building on it,” he said.

R

ecently, alternative medicine expert Dr. Bryce Wylde, a frequent guest on the Dr. Oz show, revealed a simple secret that amazed millions who suffer with digestion nightmares. And people haven’t stopped talking about it since.

“I’d give anything to make it stop!” That’s what most people will tell you when asked about their digestive problems. “It’s just horrible says Ralph Burns, a former digestion victim. I was tortured for years by my Acid-Reflux. Sometimes I’d almost pass out from the pain. My wife suffers with digestion problems too. If she eats one wrong thing, she spends hours stuck in the bathroom dealing with severe bouts of constipation or diarrhea.”

FDA Warns About Popular Antacids A recent FDA warning explained that excessive use of antacids could lead to an increased risk of hip, wrist, and spine fractures. Especially in people over the age of 50. So when alternative medicine expert Dr. Bryce Wylde discussed an alternative on National TV, you can imagine how thrilled people were to find out they could finally get relief without having to rely on Prevecid®, Nexium®, Prilosec® and other dangerous antacids. But now, according to Dr. Wylde, your stomach problems could be over by simply drinking a small amount of a tasty Aloe Vera extract. It’s as simple as that!

Finally There’s Hope... At first, the thought of drinking aloe vera might make some people back away. But in fact, this delicious “digestion cocktail” is doing amazing things for people who suffer with stomach problems --- even if they’ve had them for years. Here’s how it works…

Stop Stomach Agony Your stomach naturally produces acid so strong, it can dissolve an aluminum spoon in just 30 minutes! And when excess acid escapes into your esophagus, throat and stomach lining, it unleashes the scorching pain of Acid-Reflux, heartburn, ulcers and more misery. Add the problems of stress, and “all hell breaks loose.” Dr. Liza Leal, a well known expert on chronic pain management explains... “The AloeCure® can work genuine miracles. It buffers high acid levels with amazing speed. So your stomach feels completely at ease just moments after drinking it.” In fact, it could wipe out stomach pain, discomfort, and frantic runs to the bathroom.

Doctor recommended AloeCure® may be the most important application ever discovered for digestive health! Dr. Santiago Rodriguez agrees. “Just two ounces of AloeCure® reduces the acids in your stomach by ten times.” Francisco DeWeever, a Certified Nutritional Microscopist, “My patients report their IBS, Crohn’s, Colitis, Constipation, Acid-Reflux and a host of other digestive problems have all but disappeared.” Dr. Bryce Wylde says that pure Aloe Vera extract like AloeCure® may be the most important application ever discovered for digestive health!

Real Customer Testimonial: For the better part of my life I purposely avoided a lot of foods. Especially ones with even a tiny bit of seasoning. Because if I didn't, I'd experience a burning sensation through my esophaguslike somebody poured hot lead or battery acid down my throat. Add to that those disgusting "mini-throw ups" and I was in "indigestion hell". Doctors put me on all sorts of antacid remedies. But nothing worked. Or if they did, it would only be for a brief period. And then boom! My nightmare would return. Then one day at dinner, a friend of mine said, "Why don't you try an aloe drink?" I said, "Aloe drink? Jeez. That doesn't sound good at all!" The next day he brought me a case of something called AloeCure®.

Until Now, Little Could Be Done...

I was shocked! AloeCure® tasted pretty good too. It has a pleasant grape flavor that I actually enjoy drinking. I decided to experiment. I stopped taking the PPIs altogether and replaced it with a daily diet of AloeCure®. Then something remarkable happened - NOTHING! Not even the slightest hint of indigestion.

But “AloeCure® can help virtually anyone. Even people with chronic stomach pain can feel better right away,” says Dr. Leal. And what’s really exciting is AloeCure® aids in keeping your digestive tract healthy, so intestinal distress stops coming back.

And here's the best part. The next day we had Italian food - my worst enemy. But for the first time in 40 years I didn't need pills or tablets to avoid indigestion. Thank you AloeCure®! - Ralph Burns

Jeff Arnett, the master distiller at the Jack Daniel’s Distillery in Lynchburg, Tenn., drills a hole in a barrel of whiskey in one of the aging houses at the distillery. Jack Daniel’s is fighting efforts in the state Legislature to dial back the legal definition of Tennessee whiskey.

Jack Daniel’s opposes changing whiskey law Tennessee looks to weaken spirit’s requirements By BRUCE SCHREINER and ERIK SCHELZIG The Associated Press NASHVILLE, Tenn. – If it isn’t fermented in Tennessee from mash of at least 51 percent corn, aged in new charred oak barrels, filtered through maple charcoal and bottled at a minimum of 80 proof, it isn’t Tennessee whiskey. So says a year-old law that resembles almost to the letter the process used to make Jack Daniel’s, the world’s best-known Tennessee whiskey. Now state lawmakers are considering dialing back some of those requirements that they say make it too difficult for craft distilleries to market their spirits as Tennessee whiskey, a distinctive and popular draw in the booming American liquor business. But the people behind Jack Daniel’s see the hand of a bigger competitor at work – Diageo PLC, the British conglomerate that owns George Dickel, another Tennessee whiskey made about 15 miles up the road. “It’s really more to weaken a title on a label that we’ve worked very hard for,” said Jeff Arnett, the master distiller at the Jack Daniel’s distillery in Lynchburg, Tenn. “As a state, I don’t think Tennessee should be bashful about being protective of Tennessee whiskey over say bourbon or scotch or any of the other products that we compete with.” Republican state Rep. Bill Sanderson emphasized that his bill wouldn’t

Lawmakers are looking at amending a law so that some of the craft distillers that have sprung up in recent years can label their products Tennessee whiskey, a distinctive and popular draw in the booming American liquor business. do away with last year’s law enacted largely on the behest of Jack Daniel’s corporate parent, Louisville, Ky.,-based Brown-Forman Corp. The principal change would be to allow Tennessee whiskey makers to reuse barrels, which he said would present considerable savings over new ones that can cost $600 each. “There are a lot of ways to make high-quality whiskey, even if it’s not necessarily the way Jack Daniel’s

does it,” Sanderson said. “What gives them the right to call theirs Tennessee whiskey, and not others?” Sanderson acknowledged that he introduced the measure at Diageo’s urging, but said it also would help micro distilleries opening across the state. Diageo picked up on the same theme. “This isn’t about Diageo, as all of our Tennessee whiskey is made with new oak,” Diageo executive vice president Guy L. Smith IV said. “This is about Brown-Forman trying to stifle competition and the entrepreneurial spirit of micro distillers. “We are not sure what they are afraid of, as we feel new innovative products from a new breed of distillers is healthy for the entire industry,” he said. Jack Daniel’s last year sold 11.5 million cases of it Black Label last year, a 5 percent increase from 2012. Dickel, the second-largest Tennessee whiskey producer, sold 130,000 cases in 2013. The standards and special branding of Tennessee whiskey are an outgrowth of the special designation granted long ago to bourbon. A halfcentury ago, Congress declared bourbon a distinctive product of the U.S. Billy Kaufman, the president of Short Mountain Distillery in Woodbury, Tenn., said it is more difficult to distinguish spirits not meeting the Tennessee standard. “If I made whiskey in Tennessee in a used barrel, what it would be called then?” he said.

JUDGE ORDERS BROWN TO REMAIN IN JAIL

THINGS

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 • Section B • Page 6

LOS ANGELES – A judge says R&B singer Chris Brown must remain in jail until a hearing in late April because he failed to remain in a court-mandated rehab program. Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin said Monday he was troubled by comments Brown made during his rehab stay in which the singer allegedly said he was good at using guns and knives. The 24-year-old singer was arrested on Friday after he was dismissed from a Malibu facility where he was being treated for anger management and other issues.

Scott, Jagger’s designer girlfriend, found dead NEW YORK – L’Wren Scott, who left her rural Utah home as a teenager to become a model in Paris, then a top Hollywood stylist and finally a high-end fashion designer best known as the longtime girlfriend of Mick Jagger, has died in what was being investigated as an apparent suicide. Scott was found dead in her Manhattan apartment at 10 a.m. Monday; no note was found and there was no sign of foul play, police said. The designer had texted her assistant 90 minutes earlier and asked her to come to her apartment but didn’t say why. She was found kneeling with a scarf wrapped around her neck that had been tied to the handle of a French door, police said. Her spokesperson requested privacy for her family and friends. Just last month Scott, who was believed to be 49 but had not disclosed her precise age, canceled her London Fashion Week show due to reported production delays. Jagger’s representative said the singer was “completely shocked and devastated by the news.” Scott, whose elegant designs in lush fabrics were favored by celebrities like Madonna, Nicole Kidman, Oprah Winfrey, Penelope Cruz and first lady Michelle Obama, was a fixture on Jagger’s arm since she met the Rolling Stones frontman in 2001. On red carpets, the striking 6-foot-3 designer towered over her famous 5-foot10 boyfriend.

misdemeanor battery against a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport in a special plea in which he maintains his innocence. West entered the plea through his attorney and did not attend the court hearing. He was sentenced to two years of probation, 24 anger management therapy sessions and 250 hours of community service. The rapper did not reach a civil settlement with the paparazzo, and his plea cannot be used against him in a civil lawsuit. West was charged with misdemeanor counts of battery and grand theft after an altercation at LAX with photographer Daniel Ramos in July. Ramos claimed West punched him in an unprovoked attack and wrestled his camera to the ground during the scuffle. Ramos is suing West and attended Monday’s hearing accompanied by his lawyer, Gloria Allred.

The mayor made a cameo as himself in Sunday night’s episode of CBS’ “The Good Wife,” a legal and political drama set in Chicago. During the episode, a character played by actor Nathan Lane is riding in a New York City taxi. De Blasio loudly extolls the city’s virtues in a commercial shown on a loop on the cab’s backseat TV. This prompts Lane to ask his cab driver to turn off the video, saying “the mayor won’t stop talking.” It’s de Blasio’s first acting job since taking office. He has described himself as an “intense” fan of the show.

LOS ANGELES – It’s a boy for Josh Holloway, who said “everything’s calmer” with his second baby. The 44-year-old actor said in an interview he and his wife, Yessica Kumala, welcomed Hunter Lee Holloway earlier this year. Holloway and Kumala have a 4-year-old daughter, Java. The former “Lost” actor currently stars in the CBS series “Intelligence.”

Defendant in LA ‘Bling Ring’ case arrested again LOS ANGELES – A man who pleaded no contest to stealing from Lindsay Lohan and reality star Audrina Patridge has been arrested on suspicion of having a gun – a violation of his parole. City News Service reported Monday that 23-year-old Nicholas Prugo was taken into custody last week in Los Angeles. Prugo pleaded no contest in March 2012 in the “Bling Ring” burglaries case authorities say targeted celebrities’ homes. He was sentenced to time already served in jail in exchange for his testimony against other defendants. His attorney Markus Mueller-Dombois said after Prugo entered his plea his client was “doing the right thing.” Authorities say the burglaries Prugo and five others were involved in netted more than $3 million in jewelry, clothes and art.

‘Today’ host Savannah Guthrie married, expecting NEW YORK – “Today” anchor Savannah Guthrie has gotten married, and she used the occasion to announce she’s expecting her first child. Guthrie and Mike Feldman, a 45-year-old communications strategist, tied the knot Saturday near her hometown of Tucson, Ariz. It was there she told her guests that she is four months pregnant. Guthrie’s on-air “Today” colleagues were among those on hand for the wedding ceremony.

Arkush leads new Chicago Football franchise By SHAW MEDIA Shaw Media and Daily Herald Media Group on Monday announced the launch of Chicago Football, a print and digital sports media franchise covering high school, college and professional football. Veteran football analyst and Chicago-area sports personality Hub Arkush will spearhead the initiative. The first edition of Chicago Football magazine hits newsstands in

early April, and will focus on the Chicago Bears’ preparation for the 2014 NFL Draft. The first edition will include exclusive interviews with head coach Marc Trestman and general manager Phil Emery. It also will break down the professional prospects of Chicago-area players, including Jimmy Garoppolo (Rolling Meadows), Jordan Lynch (Chicago), C.J. Fiedorowicz (Johnsburg) and others. In print, Chicago Football will be a glossy magazine published week-

ly during the football season and monthly in the offseason. The publishers also plan to produce several annual football guides to be distributed nationally. Effective Monday, the website Hub Hub Arkush.com became Arkush ChicagoFootball.com. The new site will provide in-depth news and analysis

of the Bears, along with extensive information about the NFC North division and coverage of all 32 NFL teams. The site also will provide analysis of local high school and college programs as the 2014 season approaches. In addition to Arkush, Chicago Football contributors include Shaw Media’s Kevin Fishbain and Tom Musick, and the Daily Herald’s premier Bears expert Bob LeGere and fantasy football analyst John Dietz.

Veteran designer and editor Bob Peters – who previously worked with Arkush at Pro Football Weekly – also has joined the Chicago Football team. Arkush indicated that he is in the process of hiring additional staff. Chicago Football will be headquartered in the Daily Herald offices in Arlington Heights. Arkush noted that the time is right for this venture.

Behind the scenes with the Currans – Bellator 112 at Horseshoe Casino

By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com

H

AMMOND, Ind. – Pat Curran’s body slumped against the wall of a cramped backstage dressing room, drained by 25 minutes of punishment. Curran’s right eye almost was swollen shut, but the 26-year-old fighter finally was able to find a moment of quiet. A gold Bellator championship belt laid across Curran’s stomach, showing that his mission was complete. This is what winning looks like in the

world of mixed martial arts fighting. His face was left bloodied by Daniel Straus, but Curran had pulled off a dramatic win as Straus tapped out with 14 seconds left in Friday night’s Bellator featherweight championship fight at Horseshoe Casino. Physically, Curran felt as good as the moment allowed. But the problem was his stomach, which wouldn’t stop turning somersaults, keeping Curran from feeling entirely comfortable. “You got your belt back, champ,” Curran’s manager, Brian Butler said, leaning over his client.

Curran sat with his arms folded behind his head. He just smiled. “No big deal,” Curran said. “Walk in the park, right?” This fight had been the toughest of the 25 Curran has endured. After losing his belt to Straus in November, Curran vowed to work harder than ever. His eight-week training camp had been as intense as Curran could remember. In that time, however, Curran also had started treatment for severe depression and

CONANT 3, CRYSTAL LAKE SOUTH 0

Gators struggle in first trip outside By PATRICK MASON pmason@shawmedia.com HOFFMAN ESTATES – The Crystal Lake South girls soccer team had been together for only two weeks, practicing on hardwood floors, before meeting a Conant team already familiar with playing outside on its field turf. “This is our first time we’ve even been outside and seen anything that looks even remotely like grass,” Gators first-year coach Jay Mueller said. “So we were just kind of experimenting today to see where all the pieces Joseph Cyganowski for Shaw Media fit together.” Conant’s Leah Celarek (left) and Crystal Lake South’s Erin Woeste go for the ball Monday in The Cougars looked like the team that had more practice time Hoffman Estates.

outside as they scored early and padded the lead with two secondhalf goals to beat the Gators, 3-0, Monday night in the first match of the season for both squads. Forward Emily Mazurek started the scoring for Conant (1-0) with the first of her two goals on a crossing pass from teammate Leah Celarek that traveled just out of the reach of diving Gators goalkeeper Jaclyn Przybylski in the eighth minute. The Gators (0-1) struggled early on defense, as the Cougars’ fast forwards were able to get behind the South defenders. Conant finished with three first-half shots on goal as Przybylski made a couple of strong saves from point-blank range to keep the deficit at 1-0.

Przybylski, who made four saves, said a slow start was to be expected in the first game of the season as everyone was getting their bearings with new teammates on something other than a gymnasium floor. “I noticed that our defense was a little off and our communication needs to improve,” the junior goalkeeper said. “In the second half, we started passing better and we’ll learn from our mistakes real soon.” Mueller, wanting to get a good look at this team, played every player he had in the match and tried to gauge what combinations worked best.

THUNDER 97, BULLS 85

Thunder too tough when it counts Durant scores 35 points; OKC pulls away in 4th with 16-1 run By JOE COWLEY

Next for the Bulls

jcowley@suntimes.com CHICAGO – The Bulls wanted to know where they stacked up against NBA elite with less than a month left until the playoffs, and Monday night they got their answer. Not quite the answer they were hoping for. Thanks to 35 points from MVP candidate Kevin Durant, the Oklahoma City Thunder pulled away from the Bulls in the fourth quarter, beating them, 97-85, at the United Center. At least now they know. “I wish we could have this game back, I wish we could play these guys again, but it is what it is,’’ All-Star center Joakim Noah said. Maybe the result would have been different. Maybe not, especially when the Bulls went ice cold offensively, missing 11 straight shots at one point in the final quarter. “It just wasn’t going our way,’’ Taj Gibson said of the poor shooting. “We had a lot of good looks, a lot of normal looks that we usually make, and it wasn’t going down for us.’’ Either way, the fact that the Bulls (37-30) beat the likes of Miami and Houston on the 3-3 homestand should have been some consolation. But coaches like Tom Thibodeau aren’t much into moral victories, and that’s why the details of the three losses were still fresh in his mind. “It tells you exactly where you are,’’ Thibodeau said of the past six

Bulls at Philadelphia, 6 p.m. Wednesday, CSN,AM-1000 games. “Look, we played the Memphis game, had a seven-point lead with four minutes left in the third, open three, we missed, they came down and made. We didn’t close that quarter out well, that cost us. “The San Antonio game we played very poorly at the start, got in a big hole. “This game, I thought we did a lot of good things in this game. It’s a make-or-miss league, and as long as the ball moves and it’s your shot, we want you to take it.’’ Take it they did. The making part was much more difficult. With 10:10 left in the game and the Bulls cutting the deficit to three points, back into the game came Durant after a short breather. The immediate response was a Gibson basket to make it just a 76-75 game, but then star power took over, as Oklahoma City dominated down the stretch with a 16-1 run. In finishing with 35 points, Durant has scored at least 25 points or more in 32 straight games. He also added 12 rebounds and five assists, and saw his share of double-teams throughout the game.

Bears different, but better? Time for Bickell to By MARK LAZERUS mlazerus@suntimes.com PHILADELPHIA – There’s no sugarcoating Bryan Bickell’s season, no positive spin to put on it. For $16 million, the Blackhawks expected more than 10 goals and two assists at this point in the season. They expected him to average more than a hit and a half a game. They expected him to play more than 10 minutes most nights. But there’s one sure-fire way to salvage Bickell’s lost season. After all, he earned that four-year, $16 million deal in the playoffs last year. He can still justify it in the playoffs this year. “When I think of myself as a hockey player, I feel I’m a playoff kind of guy,” he said. “The regular season is important, but you know, the playoffs is the most important time. That’s where the physicality goes up a level, and it tends to bring more out of me. It sparks me.” History backs Bickell up. Besides last season, he had big playoff performances in juniors in 2005 (17 points in 21 games) and 2006 (10 points in seven games), and had two goals in each of the Hawks’ first-round losses in 2011 and 2012. There are always going to be players who underperform in the regular season, but who have a knack for coming up big in the postseason. Dave Bolland was a perfect example, a guy who seemed to shrug off stretches of the regular season, only to transform into a difference-maker

Next for the Hawks Hawks at Philadelphia, 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, CSN, NBCSN, AM-720 when the stakes were highest. Bickell doesn’t want to think of himself that way. He wants to be a consistent performer from October to June. He wants to be a reliable and productive presence night in and night out. He also doesn’t want to wait until the playoffs to flip that switch. In fact, the Hawks’ recent struggles before Sunday night’s 4-1 win over Detroit handed Bickell a golden opportunity to get back in Joel Quenneville’s good graces. And Bickell has made some headway. After playing fewer than 10 minutes in 15 of 26 games since returning from a knee injury in mid-December, Bickell has averaged almost 13 minutes in each of the past three games. He doled out six hits in Colorado, was one of the few players Quenneville wasn’t disgusted with against Nashville, and delivered four more hits against Detroit. He even found himself bumped up to the second line with Patrick Kane on Sunday. “When things are going right, Q likes to keep everything the same,” Bickell said. “When we’re struggling, he likes to throw a wrench in and try to get sparks a different way. Hopefully, that can get me going.”

OK Bears fans, let’s all take a deep breath and see if we can figure out what’s just happened. With an incredibly frenzied first week of free agency now in the books, most of the big names have either found new homes or decided to stay home, and there isn’t much left that’s going to move the needle between now and the NFL draft. Sure, Jared Allen is still out there. Knowshon Moreno would look really nice behind Matt Forte, but something tells me general manager Phil Emery isn’t looking to spend what’s left in the bank that way. Chris Clemons would still be an upgrade at safety, so we can keep our eyes on him. And there’s plenty of depth still available on the offensive line, but who really cares about the backup big uglies? Unless Allen decides to become a Bear, what we see is what we’ve got to start planning around. The Bears did a great job of taking care of their own. Jay Cutler, Matt Slauson, Roberto Garza, Robbie Gould, Charles Tillman, Tim Jennings, D.J. Williams and Jeremiah Ratliff are exactly the veterans the Bears needed to keep to avoid taking a step backward. If Kelvin Hayden and Nate Collins are healthy, they’ve also got much better depth than they had last year, although I’ll be very surprised if Hayden doesn’t reclaim his nickel spot from Isaiah Frey. The real keys are Tillman and Williams. As awful as the Bears’ defense was last year, it didn’t go completely down the tubes until those two went down for the season with injuries at roughly the same time. Lance Briggs had to sit down for almost half the season. If those three can start 14 to 16 games, it’s possible what the Bears are trying to fix isn’t as disastrous as we think it is. I am disappointed that Julius Peppers is gone. That he couldn’t come back on his existing, salary cap-strangling contract was a given, and restructuring again was a bad idea because it just would have created a bigger problem in a year or two. But I believe if the Bears had sent him off with a promise something like, “We have to cut you, but go shop, get your best deal and we’ll match it,” they could have avoided not only weakening themselves but strengthening the team they’re chasing. The new kids are OK. I have no problem

with the signings of Lamarr Houston, Ryan Mundy, Jordan Senn, Domenik Hixon and Willie Young. But there are a few issues. I think Houston could be the best three-technique in the league over the next few years, but he doesn’t project as a right end, and the trade of Peppers for Houston does not improve the defense. Has anyone noticed the Bears under Emery may have a tendency to bring in decent talent and use it at the wrong position? Houston and Peppers together on the same line, that would have been exciting. Mundy is better than what you have – so, good move – but is he a starting caliber safety? We’ll see. Senn and Hixon should be good special teams contributors, and make more sense than Eric Weems and Blake Costanzo. Then there is Willie Young. I called several Lions games on the radio from the sidelines last year and Young stuck out. I like his athleticism and he’s very quick off the ball. But for 15 starts, his production was minimal. Here is the key question: Is there any real evidence that after four years in the league for each, Young is a better player than Corey Wootton? In 46 games, Young has 72 tackles, six sacks, zero fumbles forced, two fumbles recovered and seven passes defensed. In 45 games, Wootton has 70 tackles, 11 sacks, three fumbles forced, two fumbles recovered and six passes defensed, and he proved this year he can play inside or outside which Young won’t, and Wootton is two years younger. Clearly Houston has a ton more upside than Peppers, but will he ever get just to where Peppers is now at the end of his career? Can anyone argue Young has more upside than Wootton? I suppose you can, but it’s a tough argument to make. So here’s what matters. The Packers are better with Peppers. The Lions would appear to be better with Golden Tate. Are the Bears better with Houston and Young? • Hub Arkush covers the Bears and the NFL for Shaw Media and ChicagoFootball.com. Write to him at harkush@chicagofootball.com.

INDIANAPOLIS – After Philadelphia’s latest loss gave the 76ers their longest skid in franchise history, coach Brett Brown insisted he doesn’t dwell on the streak. Lance Stephenson scored 25 points, and the Indiana Pacers rallied from an early deficit to beat Philadelphia, 99-90, Monday night, handing the 76ers their 21st straight loss. “It’s hard because of a competitive thing, but in relation to worrying about a record, we don’t live in that world,” Brown said. “I don’t bring that to that locker room once. I don’t mention it to them, I don’t think about it often – (but) you can’t help but be aware of it.” Philadelphia eclipsed its previous mark of 20 straight losses during the 1972-73 season, when it finished 9-73. The Sixers tied the Detroit Pistons for the sixth-longest losing streak in NBA history. The Pistons lost 21 straight bridging the 1979-80 and 1980-81 seasons. The Cleveland Cavaliers set the NBA record for consecutive losses with 26, in the 2010-11 season.

“The NFL’s popularity is at an all-time high, and many fans have an affiliation with at least one college and high school program, while many follow more than one,” Arkush said. “Chicago Football will be unique in its look at the sport from a geographical perspective, and our singular focus will allow us to go more in-depth than other media.” Arkush indicated that his outlet would aim to create a “community” for area fans, as

well as players. “We believe that players at one level can benefit from the experience of those at another,” Arkush said. Shaw Media President John Rung said Chicago Football is part of his company’s ongoing expansion into niche publishing. “We are aggressively expanding our audience. We could think of no better niche to serve than football, and no better analyst to lead our efforts than Hub Arkush,” Rung said. Representatives from Shaw and Daily Herald Media

Group expressed optimism about the alliance. “The Daily Herald has been a terrific partner on other initiatives,” Rung said. “Their sports coverage is widely regarded as some of the best in the Chicago region, and we are thrilled to be working with them on Chicago Football.” Chicago Football’s NFL Draft Preview edition will be available on newsstands April 7. The magazine can be purchased at area newsstands or included as part of an annual subscription, available at ChicagoFootball.com.

INDIANAPOLIS – Colts owner Jim Irsay was pulled over near his home in suburban Carmel just before midnight Sunday by police who said they found multiple prescription drugs inside his vehicle. He was spotted driving slowly, stopping in the roadway and failing to use a turn signal, and police said Irsay failed several roadside field sobriety tests before he was arrested. The drugs weren’t associated with any of the pill bottles found inside, police said. Some weren’t even in bottles. The 54-year-old Irsay, who acknowledged a painkiller dependency more than a decade ago, faces preliminary charges of misdemeanor driving while intoxicated and four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance. If Irsay is charged and convicted on the felony counts, he could face six months to three years in prison on each count. Chief Deputy Prosecutor Andre Miksha said no decision had been made on formal charges and a hearing was set for March 26.

Firearms expert tells of Pistorius’ love of guns PRETORIA, South Africa – Oscar Pistorius once said he mistook the sound of a washing machine for an intruder and went into “combat mode” in his house, a South African guns expert testified Monday at the double-amputee runner’s murder trial. Months later, Pistorius killed his girlfriend by shooting her through a closed toilet door. Sean Rens also said the Olympian had a “great love and enthusiasm” for guns and wanted to buy seven more in 2012, to add to the 9 mm pistol he already owned. He asked Rens, a firearms trainer, to procure them for him under a gun collector’s permit. Rens, the manager of the International Firearm Training Academy in Walkerville, south of Johannesburg, produced one invoice that included five of the guns and almost 600 hundred rounds of ammunition made out in Pistorius’ name. That total price came to nearly $5,000 and Pistorius had already paid about $4,500 of the bill, the invoice showed. The order was canceled after Pistorius shot and killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Feb. 14, 2013, Rens said. The remaining two guns were contained on a second invoice, the firearms dealer said. Pistorius said he killed Steenkamp by accident, mistaking her for an intruder in his home. Prosecutors say he killed her intentionally after an argument. – Wire reports

The forward played travel soccer for most of her life but decided to try track last season, something she always wanted to do. “We have some exciting new players that I got to see for the first time on the field that we’re excited about,” Mueller said. “It was a welcome surprise to have Brandie come out this year.” Even while the Gators played tentatively at times, still working on playing together, Conant kept three defenders back to counter South’s speed after the Gators opened the second half with two strong scoring

chances but still couldn’t put one past the Cougars goalkeeper Haley Anderson who made four saves. The Cougars were able to still generate some offense, however, when Mazurek broke free and scored her second goal four minutes into the second half. Conant added to its lead with 7:41 to play to put a Gators comeback out of reach. The Gators aren’t scheduled to play again until March 29 at Schaumburg. “This one didn’t go the way we wanted,” Minogue said, “but this season has some good things in store for us.”

POTENTIAL UPSETS Harvard over Cincinnati, East Regional: The 12th-seeded Crimson pulled off an upset by knocking off New Mexico last season and have pretty much everyone back. This is has been the most popular upset pick of the bracket.

Providence over North Carolina, East Regional: The Friars, the 11th seed, took themselves off the NCAA bubble by winning the Big East, one of the toughest tournaments in the game. The sixth-seeded Tar Heels have been inconsistent most of the year.

Saint Joseph’s over UConn, East Regional: The Hawks won nine of their past 11 games and have big man Halil Kanacevic. UConn won 26 games but could be vulnerable.

N.C. State or Xavier over Saint Louis, Midwest Regional: The Billikens limped down the stretch, losing four of five after a 25-2 start.

Iowa or Tennessee over UMass, Midwest Regional: The selection committee raised a few eyebrows by making the Minutemen a No. 6 seed after they lost seven of their final 15 games.

The Associated Press DES MOINES, Iowa – The highlight of coach Fran McCaffery’s career at Iowa so far coincides with a serious family health issue. The Hawkeyes play their first NCAA tournament game in eight years Wednesday night against Tennessee in Dayton, Ohio. While fans spend the morning getting ready, McCaffery will be in an Iowa City hospital praying for his 13-year-old son, Patrick. The younger McCaffery will have surgery to remove a thyroid tumor, just hours before Iowa (20-12) and fellow No. 11 seed Tennessee (21-12) tip off for the right to play UMass on Friday. McCaffery planned to fly to Dayton with his team Monday, return to Iowa City for Patrick’s surgery and then get back to Ohio in time to coach against the Volunteers. “My hope is ... if I can, fly back for the surgery and then fly back for the game if I can work that out,” McCaffery said Sunday. “We’ll see, logistically, if we can pull all that together.” The overriding concern for Patrick – combined with losses in six of its past seven games and an unceremonious spot in the First Four – have threatened to take some of the joy out of Iowa’s return to the NCAA tournament. It’s still a huge deal for McCaffery and the Hawkeyes, though. It’s easy to forget just how far Iowa has come in the past four years.

The Hawkeyes were largely in shambles after the threeyear tenure of Todd Lickliter, who was fired after averaging just five Big Ten wins a year and going 10-22 in 2009-10. Iowa hired McCaffery away from Siena after he led that team to three straight NCAA tournaments. McCaffery immediately injected some energy into a program that had gone stale, and his up-tempo style was a hit with fans used to the runand-gun days of former coach Tom Davis. McCaffery also remade a roster previously decimated by turnover, with Roy Devyn Marble and Aaron White the cornerstones of his rebuilding effort. Iowa began to show signs of progress in 2011-12, McCaffery’s second season, by winning 18 games and reaching the NIT. The Hawkeyes took it a step further last season, as Marble and White led them to 25 wins and the NIT title game. The Hawkeyes ultimately lived up to their preseason expectation of making the NCAA tournament this season – even if they backed into their bid. Iowa earned a spot in the Top 25 in December with strong nonconference play, and then came a win at thenNo. 3 Ohio State in January. Close home losses to Michigan State, the Buckeyes and Wisconsin dampened expectations. Still, the season that began 19-6 proved to be good enough.

All season there has been a buzz around women’s basketball about UConn and Notre Dame. Now the stage is set for the former Big East rivals to meet in an historic national championship game. The teams enter the NCAA tournament unbeaten – only the second time that’s ever happened. They are on a collision course to meet in the national championship game. If they do both get to Nashville, the Irish will be all that stands between Geno Auriemma and a record ninth NCAA championship, breaking a tie with Tennessee. “We really haven’t talked, I bet hardly at all, about this national championship or what number it is or any of that,” Auriemma said. Despite being the 13th women’s team to go unbeaten during the regular season, the Irish have felt almost unappreciated with most of the talk centered on the Huskies. Coach Muffet McGraw doesn’t seem to mind. “I like it because we can get a chip on our shoulder and head into the tournament with a bit of chip,” she said.

Even though UConn (34-0) and Notre Dame (32-0) didn’t play this season, the two teams know plenty about each other having met 12 times over the previous three seasons. Notre Dame isn’t intimidated by Connecticut; the Irish have won seven of the past nine meetings with the Huskies. “It was very unusual to go through a whole season without playing them, we’re so used to it, three times every year,” McGraw said. “We’ve gotten pretty good at beating them the last couple of years.” Before the potential meeting of unbeatens, the two might have to go through SEC powers Tennessee and South Carolina, who also earned No. 1 seeds. While it’s the 22nd time that the Vols have earned a top spot, it’s the first for the Gamecocks. The Huskies, Vols and Gamecocks all could have to play on an opponent’s home court with a trip to Nashville on the line. Stanford, Notre Dame, Louisville and Nebraska, which are all hosting regionals, were a combined 52-3 at home this season. Guard Melissa Dixon of Johnsburg and her Iowa teammates will face 11th-seeded Marist (27-6) at 7 p.m. Sunday in the Louisville Regional. Iowa (26-8) earned a No. 6 seed.

CUBS/SOX NOTES

Cubs look at Baez at 2nd base By PATRICK FINLEY pfinley@suntimes.com PHOENIX – Just because Rick Renteria won’t say it doesn’t make it untrue: Second baseman Javy Baez has a clearer, straighter, faster path to the big leagues than shortstop Javy Baez. Monday, for the first time since he was a freshman in high school, Baez became just that. Baseball America’s fifth-best prospect started at the keystone in front of an audience that included his manager, who made a rare splitsquad road trip to see him in game action after working on the practice fields this spring. “He looked fine over there,” Renteria said. Which is a fantastic first step. “It’s a short throw to first,” Baez said. “I’ve been doing early work on doing double plays, so I get used to the angle to first base.” He’ll get a few back-to-back starts at second in the next two weeks.

He could even play third – his body type might fit there better than second – before camp breaks. Renteria has said he’d like to put him at first base, too. Cubs pitcher McDonald hurt: Cubs starting pitcher James McDonald threw two pitches and had to leave with right shoulder soreness in the Cubs’ 6-2 loss to Oakland. McDonald’s second pitch to Coco Crisp sailed over Crisp’s head to the backstop, prompting a visit from Renteria and a trainer. “He was shaking his arm so we went out there just to talk to him, and he just felt like his arm wasn’t feeling right,” Renteria said. “So we’re not taking any chances.” Cubs’ Jackson strong in win: At Mesa, Ariz., Edwin Jackson threw four scoreless innings, and Darnell McDonald had two hits, leading another Cubs split squad to a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Jackson allowed three hits, walked one and struck out six. The Cubs scored three times with

the fight would go that way. Just the ebb and the flow and the back and forth, it was just razor thin and every round could have gone either direction.” Almost a half hour after he had tapped out, Straus walked into Pat’s dressing room shirtless, displaying a collection of tattoos that covered his chest. Straus made his way through the small room and approached Pat, who now was resting in a chair. Straus quietly spoke to Pat, jokingly inserting a pair of expletives in referring to the only fighter to ever knock him out. “We’re going to hug this out,” Straus said. After jumping in on a group photo made up of Pat and his Crystal Lake-based fight team, Straus left Pat with one parting message as the two fighters embraced. “You know I’m coming back after you,” Straus said. “I know,” Pat said, his arms wrapped around Straus’ neck. “I appreciate you so much,” Straus responded. “You deserved it.” Jeff stood a short distance away, understanding that even though Friday night’s fight had been dubbed “the ending of the trilogy,” the rivalry was far from over. After the fight, Rebney announced Pat would defend his title next against Patrico “Pitbull” Freire with the winner facing Straus – again for the Bellator featherweight championship, Jeff smiled as he watched the two fighters pull away from one another one final time. “You’re like two brothers fighting over the same girl,” he said. Pat sat back down, placing the ice pack back on his head while Mango wiped fresh blood from Pat’s swollen eye. Pat disappeared for a quick shower and emerged in a gray suit, a charcoal and white checkered shirt and a black tie. Anthony Mazzuca, who works for Bellator media relations, had twice entered the room, trying to rush Pat toward the post-fight news conference. Mazzuca led Pat through a hallway and into an open ballroom where a large contingent of Curran family and friends waited for the new champion. “Paddy Mike,” one of his relatives yelled as Pat came into sight, referring to the three-time Bellator champion with the nickname he had been given as a kid. Pat stopped, shaking hands and trading hugs with loved ones while he was encouraged to keep moving toward the news conference. “Walk and talk, Pat,” Mazzuca said. “Walk and talk.” Team Curran moved its way down a pair of escalators. During the final descent into a large casino, where lights and bells rang out over the din over the room, Pat clutched the belt, which was flung over his shoulder, allowing him to finally enjoy the championship he had worked so hard to win back. Somewhere behind Pat, one of his cornermen, still wearing the “Fear The Fighter” T-shirt Pat’s team had worn during the fight, announced his presence. “Paddy Mike,” the man yelled, extending each syllable as Pat reached the casino floor. “The champ is back.”

NEW RESEARCH

Heart attacks Not everyone experiences the symptoms of heart attack, researchers reporting in the journal Anesthesiology found. Post-surgery heart attacks went undetected in 85 percent of people due to a lack of symptoms (chest discomfort, pain in the upper body). More than 8 million adults worldwide have injuries or heart attacks after surgery each year, with 10 percent dying within 30 days. Researchers found a simple blood test postsurgery could help by measuring for the protein troponin, which is released into the bloodstream when the heart is injured.

We love the Olympics: heartwarming moments, gut-wrenching storylines and fearlessly dedicated athletes. Although you may not be training for an elite competition in the near future, all of us can learn from our Olympic heroes and walk away feeling like champs. • Develop the discipline. No surprise, Olympians have discipline. They use systematic and diligent training as the bridge between goals and accomplishments. Our advice: Set a clear goal with checkpoints and a deadline. Visualize achieving your objective. Get up early and train. Realize that every workout won’t be your best. • Plan like a champion. No more lackadaisical workouts with extended rest periods and ill-defined goals. Plan and maintain your weekly workouts as if a medal is on the line. Make sure you’re working on cardiovascular endurance, muscle building and interval training so you can push yourself out of your established, comfortable workout zone. • Fuel like an Olympian. Athletes know what they eat and drink helps determine their effectiveness when it counts. They get plenty of fluids (guzzle your water) and eat lots of water-packed fruits and vegetables. They fuel with carbs pre-competition and recover with carbs and protein. Make sure to eat your breakfast and work out with fuel in your tank. Restore and rebuild your muscles after your workout with a protein shake, a good source of dairy, meat, beans, eggs, nuts or seeds.

SECTION D

Are the least expensive health insurance markets that way for a reason? By JORDAN RAU Kaiser Health News People in much of Minnesota, northwestern Pennsylvania and Tucson, Ariz., are getting the best bargains from the health care law’s new insurance marketplaces: premiums half the price or less than what insurers in the country’s most expensive places are charging. The 10 regions with the lowest premiums in the nation also include Salt Lake City, all of Hawaii and eastern Tennessee. This ranking is based on the lowest cost of a “silver” plan, the mid-range plan most consumers are choosing.

Why so cheap? The cheapest regions tend to have robust competition between hospitals and doctors, allowing insurers to wangle lower rates. Many doctors work on salary in these regions, rather than being paid by procedure, weakening the financial incentive to perform more procedures. Health systems focus on organizing patient care rather than let specialists work detached from each other. The lowest monthly silver premium in the country is offered in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region, where a 40-yearold will pay $154 a month for a PreferredOne plan. Just across the Wisconsin border, that same level plan – but with a different insurer and other doctors and hospitals – costs nearly three times as much.

Insurers were able to negotiate low rates with hospitals and doctors in the Twin Cities because they could choose among four major health care systems. Both Fairview Health Services, which runs the University of Minnesota Medical Center and is included in the lowest plan’s network, and Allina Health, the largest system in the Twin Cities and operator of Abbott Northwestern Hospital, have been in the vanguard of experimenting with more efficient ways to care for patients, such as accountable care organizations and putting doctors on salary, said Stephen Parente, a health economist at the University of Minnesota. “Minnesota has had years, if not decades, of experience with managed care,” he said. Most counties in central and northern Minnesota also have premiums that are among the lowest in the nation. Michael Rothman, commissioner of Minnesota’s Department of Commerce, which regulates insurers, said the state moved early to enact cost-control measures such as restricting how much insurers can spend on things other than medical care and requiring annual insurance rates to go through state review. Several of the other lowestcost areas, including the Salt Lake City region and Hawaii, also have major hospitals and health systems that have been at the forefront of integrated care, in which rules, payment methods and the bureaucracy are designed to foster col-

laboration among primary care doctors, specialists and nurses. But people who buy the cheapest Salt Lake City plan will not have access to Intermountain Healthcare, the most prestigious system in the area.

Costs of innovation Innovative hospital practices do not guarantee cheap insurance. In Rochester, Minn., the home of the Mayo Clinic in the southeastern portion of the state, the lowest-priced silver premium is $305, which is above the national median. Although Mayo’s doctors are salaried and the system practices integrated care, its prices are higher than in Minneapolis, said Dannette Coleman, an executive at Medica, the insurer that offers the lowest priced silver plan in that area. Given Mayo’s extensive network of clinics in the region, “you really cannot be in that area in that state if you don’t have the Mayo Clinic Health System in your network,” she said. Mayo officials did not respond to a request for comment. In eastern Tennessee, cheap premiums are notable because many residents face chronic health issues. Obesity and smoking are common. “We’re the buckle of the stroke belt,” said Kevin Spiegel, president of Erlanger Health System, which is included in the network of the least-expensive silver plans in Chattanooga. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Tennessee was able to offer the lowest silver premiums in

the Knoxville and Chattanooga regions – $180 a month for a 40-year-old – by cutting deals with just one hospital system and their doctors in each region, said Henry Smith, the insurer’s chief marketing officer. “There are competing systems within those two regions to price against,” Smith said. These lowest premium plans are “the narrowest network we have by far.” Likewise, in western Pennsylvania, Highmark was able to offer the low premium – $164 for a 40-year-old – by omitting nine hospitals and about 3,000 doctors who charge higher prices, spokeswoman Kristin Ash said. Consumers wanting a wider network will have to pay Highmark 38 percent more a month. These competitive markets are quite different than in southwest Georgia, the secondmost expensive region in the country. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia had no choice but to include in its network the Phoebe Putney Health System, which controls 86 percent of the market. The lowest premium in southwest Georgia is $461, two-and-a-half times the rate in Chattanooga.

Personality plays a role in optimism game As you gaze upon the glass, does it appear to be half-full or half-empty? The answer depends upon many factors. Your personality plays a role. Usually, an optimist will say the glass is half-full, and a pessimist views the glass as half-empty. More than likely, an individual who is depressed finds the glass half-empty and someone who is happy and full of joy visualizes the glass as half-full. There also is reality. If you have experienced a dif-

VIEWS Dr. Murray Feingold ficult life, your glass more likely will be half-empty, in contrast to people who have been fortunate to lead more enjoyable lives – their glasses will appear to be half-full. How people view the status of the content of their glass frequently changes with age, and that makes sense. When you are age 25, it is

unlikely you have yet faced the many vicissitudes of life. You are usually in good health and may even have the feeling of being omnipotent. The glass for you appears to be more than halffull, and maybe even spilling over the brim. You have a long life to look forward to. But, as the years go by, and they do so very quickly, there is a good chance your perspective may change. You ultimately will get to the stage when you realize you have lived more years than you have left in your life.

Sixty- or 70-year-old individuals have fewer years left to live, therefore, their glass may start appearing to be less full. And, as you grow older, you usually have more maladies and more aches and pains. All of these issues may be associated with an increased incidence of depression. Therefore, for an older individual, who was once a half-full type of person, with age and facing new issues, the contents of the glass may slowly ebb away and become less and less, making the

glass appear half-empty. But it certainly does not have to happen this way. There are many positive aspects of growing older. Learn to enjoy and appreciate them.

After 25 years, heart recipient still healthy By Marlene Cimons The Washington Post A few weeks ago, Thomas Cook celebrated an unexpected milestone, having lived as long with a donor heart as he had with his own. In reality, however, the new heart became his own the moment surgeons transplanted it inside his chest 25 years ago. “His body and his heart have become one,’’ said Steven Boyce, surgical director of the heart failure and heart transplantation program at MedStar Heart Institute at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where Cook’s transplant took place on Feb. 1, 1989. “We don’t know why. It’s very unusual when the body accepts a new organ and says, ‘Hey, you’re me.’ His body just accepted the organ and never caused a fuss.’’ Cook, 50, is among the longest-surviving heart transplant recipients on record. Even more remarkable, Cook has never experienced any significant rejection episodes or other major medical complications that can occur after heart transplantation. He takes anti-rejection medicine, as all transplant patients must, but has had few side effects. “I’ve done nothing but live my life,’’ he said. “I’ve had ups and downs, but I’m enjoying the feelings of being alive. I’m happy to have them. It’s part of the cycle of life, and I’m happy to still be in that cycle. I beat the odds, and I’m amazed at the wonderful life I’ve had.’’ On Feb. 19, when Cook arrived at the hospital for his annual checkup, the physicians, nurses and other staff involved in his care – as well as the mother of his heart donor – surprised him with 25 red heart-shaped balloons, a heart-shaped cake, plates of heart-shaped sugar cookies and a heart made of crystal engraved with “25 years strong.’’ “It’s not too often that someone who’s had a heart transplant drops by to visit on his 25th anniversary,’’ Boyce said. No one knows how many heart recipients survive 20 or more years after transplanta-

tion. The United Network for Organ Sharing, a nonprofit organization that matches available organs with recipients nationwide, began collecting data on survival rates only in 1987. UNOS estimates about one of every six heart recipients transplanted before 1994 has survived 20 years or longer, and Boyce believes “the odds of living 25 years with a heart transplant are not even one in 10.’’ About 100,000 people have undergone heart transplantation worldwide. According to the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute, the 10-year survival rate for heart transplant surgery is about 56 percent. They often face post-surgical complications including primary graft dysfunction, which occurs when the new donor heart fails to function during or after implantation, and rejection, where the host’s immune system attacks the donated organ. Patients also may experience cardiac allograft vasculopathy, when the new heart’s coronary arteries – each donor heart comes with its own coronary arteries – develop blockages. In addition, side effects from immunosuppressant drugs can result in kidney damage, infections and cancer. Yet heart transplant patients are living longer and better lives today, thanks to improvements in drugs such as cyclosporin and the increasing use of left ventricular assist devices, which keep patients alive and healthier until a donor heart becomes available. “Immunosuppression is so much better, and we have fantastic new technology, and that’s what’s made all the difference,’’ said Irving L. Kron, a spokesman for the American Heart Association and a thoracic and cardiovascular surgeon at the University of Virginia Health System in Charlottesville. “There’s a really good chance that people will be around in 20 or more years.’’ That wasn’t the case when Cook had his surgery. “Even though cyclosporin was available then, we were still

Give too little and he could experience rejection.’’ In Cook’s case, youth was in his favor, since many patients receiving heart transplants in the 1980s were in their 60s and typically in poorer health than patients in their 20s.

Problems began early When Cook was 4 years old, doctors discovered he had a heart valve problem. When he was older, he was given a diagnosis of Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder that often causes heart problems. By the time he was 25, Cook needed surgery to replace his aortic valve and his ascending aorta, a blood vessel that rises up from the heart. He suffered a heart attack during the procedure, which caused further damage and left transplant as

his only option. “I was out of it, but I was told that I went through several dozen code blues’’ – meaning he needed immediate resuscitation – “and was clinically dead 40 times,’’ Cook said. At about the same time, Jeffrey Lord Brown, 27, lay with a broken neck in Prince George’s Hospital Center in Cheverly, Md. – then called Prince George’s County Hospital – after a motorcycle accident. Previously, he had signed up to be an organ donor. On Feb. 1, 1989, after Brown was declared brain-dead, Cook, still in the hospital after his heart attack, received Brown’s heart. Cook spent a month in the hospital after the transplant. “They opened my chest three times,” he said. “The first was for the initial surgery [for the aortic work]. The second was for the transplant. Then, at some point I had some internal bleeding, so they had to open me up a third time to stop the

bleeding. After they closed it the third time, it’s never been opened again.’’ Cook worked for 14 years after the surgery as a truck driver and dispatcher before retiring on a disability not related to his transplant. For nearly 10 years, he did not know the identity of his donor. Likewise, Susan Knight, Brown’s mother, did not know who had received her son’s heart. They finally met in 1998 after she asked the Washington Regional Transplant Community to bring them together. The organization contacted Cook, who readily agreed to meet. “I was all for it,” he said. “I was busy living and often thought about the donor family. But in 1989, I was told they don’t do such things.” When they got together, he recalls, “it was very emotional. She brought some pictures of Jeff, so that was my first time seeing him.’’ They hugged, and she stood at his left side for photographs.

Cook is 6-foot-5. She is a foot shorter, which placed her chest-high to him. “I could hear the heart beat,’’ she recalled of that first meeting. “It was just wonderful.’’ Today, Knight, 73, a supermarket cashier who lives in Annapolis, Md., considers Cook another son. He calls her “Mother Sue.’’ She attended his 1999 wedding, and their families get together at least once a year. “She lost a child, but found one in me,” Cook said. In an odd coincidence, Knight noted her great-greatgrandfather’s name was Thomas Cook. “I think it was meant to be,’’ she said. “Jeff was a gentle spirit who played the piano some, and the guitar, and loved to ride his bike, just like Tom,’’ she added, referring to the two men’s love of motorcycles.”I feel like Jeff and Tom knew each other before they came to Earth, and Jeff told Tom: ‘If you need my heart, I’ll be there for you.’ ’’

Pregnant sister facing jail Hormone therapy can arouses reader response help treat vaginal dryness Dear Abby: Your answer to “Heartbroken in Alabama” (Jan. 2) did not go deep enough. The pregnant sister, “Nicole,” who is facing prison time, needs to contact the Department of Children’s Services in her county/state as soon as possible. They will oversee the placement of her child if said child is born in jail or prison. A child born in custody becomes a ward of the state, and if arrangements can be made prior to birth for a foster family, it could benefit the child and “Heartbroken.” – Obstetrical R.N. In Michigan Dear R.N.: Thank you for writing. Readers’ views were emotionally charged about this subject, as you will see: Dear Abby: “Heartbroken” is upset because her parents want to raise her sister’s child while her sister serves a prison sentence. It should be the sister’s decision who will raise the child, no one else’s. It sounds as if the parents intend to maintain the family ties and make sure the child knows his/her birth mother, regardless of the circumstances. This is especially important since the birth father is married and probably unavailable. It’s unlikely the birth mother would be released from prison ready and able, emotionally and financially, to care for her child. But if the parents have custody, a relationship can still be formed and the child won’t

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips be cast to the wind. If I were the birth mother, I wouldn’t want my child raised by a sister who has no compassion or empathy for me. “Heartbroken” is behaving like the child is a commodity with no rights or needs of his/her own. That child needs to view the birth mother as someone of value (as everyone is) in order to develop a healthy sense of self. I urge “Heartbroken” and her husband to educate themselves about the emotional needs of adopted children before they take any child into their home. – Adoptive

Mother In California Dear Abby: “Heartbroken” may desperately want to be a mother and her mother may want to raise her grandchild, but has either of them given consideration to the special needs that Nicole’s child will likely be born with? We have two adopted children whose birth mothers had varying degrees of alcohol and drug dependency. Our boys have learning disabilities, seizures, ADHD and more. They require numerous kinds of therapy and more doctors’ appointments than we had with our six biological children combined. Adoption is a wonderful process, and the joys of

raising a child with special needs are numerous. However, “Heartbroken” and her mother both need to be aware that adopting a bundle of joy whose mother was drugged and/or drank during pregnancy means they will be raising a child who has some level of disability. “Heartbroken,” do your research. I’d hate to see your heart broken again. – Mom

Who Knows In Idaho Dear Abby: Having an addiction does not absolve Nicole from facing the music for her past actions – she may indeed serve time. But respect and empathy are more appropriate reactions to her situation than judgment and criticism. It’s likely Nicole is already providing herself with plenty of those. “Heartbroken” should consider talking with her sister to validate how hard it must be for Nicole, who “always wanted to be a mom,” to finally be pregnant but facing jail time instead of nursery time. I know several women in the same situation, who acted on what they perceived to be in the best interest of their child. They facilitated the adoption of the child, most often sending the child to a loving and trusted relative, especially a sibling. – Addiction Medi-

Dear Dr. K: I’ve been bothered by vaginal dryness. Sex is painful. My doctor believes it’s vaginal atrophy due to menopause. Can you tell me more about this condition? How is it treated? Dear Reader: During a woman’s reproductive years, the lining of the vagina is kept moist and lubricated in part by female hormones made by the ovaries – particularly estrogen. With the start of menopause, estrogen levels decline. This often leads to vaginal atrophy: The lining of the vagina becomes thin and dry. Natural menopause is not the only reason for estrogen levels to drop and vaginal atrophy to develop. Breastfeeding, surgical removal of the ovaries and certain medical treatments also can do it. As you’ve experienced, the reduced lubrication of the vagina can lead to painful sexual intercourse. It also can cause vaginal itching or burning. You may experience light bleeding after sex. Such light vaginal bleeding following sex is not a worry, as long as it does not occur at times unrelated to sex. Vaginal atrophy is best treated with estrogen

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff therapy. This is available in many forms. Some forms apply estrogen directly to the lining of the vagina. For example, estrogen creams or suppositories are inserted into the vagina using an applicator. A vaginal ring can be placed in the vagina for three months. It slowly releases estrogen directly to the vaginal tissues. Vaginal estrogen preparations produce very low levels of estrogen in the blood. They are the safest way to treat vaginal atrophy with estrogen. But some of my patients do not like applying creams or placing devices in the vagina, and prefer something easier. One alternative some women prefer is an estrogen pill. Another treatment is an estrogen patch that is applied to the skin once or twice a week. The pill and the patch deliver estrogen into the blood. When the blood reaches the lining of the vagina, the estrogen in the blood causes the lining to become thicker and more moist. As you’re likely aware,

studies have found estrogen therapy given in pill form may slightly increase the risk of having a stroke. This is particularly true if the estrogen pill also contains progestin sex hormones, the usual form of hormone therapy. However, doctors still recommend short-term estrogen pill therapy to treat temporary symptoms of menopause. Your doctor will use the lowest dose possible to relieve your symptoms. In my experience, the lowest dose (typically half of the usual dose) often is very effective, and less likely to cause side effects. You may prefer to avoid estrogen altogether. If so, try a water-soluble lubricant. Lubricants relieve vaginal dryness, moisten vaginal tissues and can help make sex less painful. They can be purchased without a prescription at most pharmacies or grocery stores. Regular sexual activity also can help to prevent symptoms. This is because sexual intercourse improves blood circulation to the vagina. This helps keep vaginal tissues healthy. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at www.askdoctork.com or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

Sam Levenson, a comedian and author, said, “If you die in an elevator, be sure to push the Up button.” If your partner bids up, you (or he) had better know how to push -- play -- the cards correctly. In today’s deal, South is catapulted into four spades. What should he do after West leads the club ace and continues with the club king? In answer to North’s takeout double, South might have expediently responded one diamond. North was less likely to get excessively enthusiastic opposite a minorsuit bid than opposite one in a major. However, four spades can be made. (And note that ive clubs doubled costs 500, more than the value of the North-South game.) North’s four-club rebid was a splinter, showing fourcard spade support, a very strong hand and at most a singleton club. Declarer’s basic plan should be to lose only two hearts and one club. He should aim to take four spades, one heart, four diamonds and the trick-two ruff on the board. So, after trumping the club king low,

South should draw trumps, then play the ace and another heart. Suppose West takes the second heart and leads the club jack. Declarer ruffs and must inesse in diamonds -but how? Since he might -- and here does -- need to take three diamond inesses, he must irst lead his diamond nine -- the lowest card in his hand that can hold the trick, assuming the inesse works. After winning with the diamond nine, South runs the diamond jack, plays a diamond to dummy’s queen, and claims those 10 tricks.
