Zinke not bowing out of race against Prim

Same-sex couple can’t get license County sticks to June 1 date By JIM DALLKE

Voice your opinion

jdallke@shawmedia.com HUNTLEY – Rodrigo Perez and his partner Marco Mendoza walked inside the McHenry County Clerk’s office Tuesday morning with the hope of obtaining a marriage license. The Huntley couple saw Cook County’s Feb. 21 ruling that same-sex couples could receive a marriage license before the original June 1 date. Then followed Champaign, DeKalb, St. Clair and Cass counties after Attorney General Lisa Madigan encouraged clerks across the state to issue the license to same-sex couples immediately. But the couple was denied and told they would have to wait until June or travel to Cook County, something three McHenry County couples have already done. “We told [McHenry County Clerk Katherine Schultz] we

McHenry County Undersheriff Andrew Zinke looks out into the crowd while waiting for results to filter in during his election night gathering Tuesday in Crystal Lake.

Independent candidate Harrison ready for Nov. By CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com McHenry County Undersheriff Andrew Zinke was staying quiet on his immediate plans the day after Bill Prim took the Republican nod for McHenry County sheriff. After early votes were counted, Prim, a retired Des Plaines police commander, edged Zinke by 98 votes. Prim declined an interview Tuesday night, and multiple follow-up requests for a post-election win interview were not returned. Zinke said it was still too early to give the win Jim Harrison to Prim, who declared victory before his supporters Tuesday night. Zinke still wasn’t ready to concede Wednesday, believing there were more votes to be counted. “We’ll wait until all the votes are cast, and we’ll take it from there,” Zinke said. McHenry County Clerk Katherine Schultz confirmed there are 47 late absentee ballots outstanding – not enough to square up the race. Any late absentee ballots postmarked by the date of the election have two weeks to arrive at the clerk’s office to be counted. At that time, any provisional ballots

GENERAL INFORMATION: 815-459-4040

No state funds for Obama library, please SPRINGFIELD – This month, House Speaker Mike Madigan announced legislation to offer money for the construction of a Barack Obama Presidential Library somewhere in Chicago. Illinois, New York and Hawaii are vying to be the home of the library. Illinois, of course, is Obama’s adoptive state, Hawaii his home state, and New York City is where he did his undergraduate studies. Every president since Herbert Hoover has been the beneficiary of one of these taxpayer-supported institutions run by the National Archives. As the decades have marched on, however, they have progressively become more grandiose. For example, George W. Bush opened his presidential library last year in Dallas at a cost of $300 million. Frankly, these “libraries” are becoming costly, self-aggrandizing monuments to already inflated egos. While they purport to be about

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Scott Reeder “history” and are run by the National Archives, they are really about burnishing the image of someone who has already been honored with the most powerful job in the world. Madigan wants Illinois to pledge $100 million toward the construction of Obama’s library. The state can’t pay its bills on time, pensions are grossly underfunded, basic state services are being cut, and he wants to spend $100 million to build a shrine to a politician? Come on, Mike. Years ago, I visited Lyndon Baines Johnson’s library in Austin, Texas. The exhibits said little about the man’s flawed foreign policy decisions in Vietnam or the societal problems that have come from his expansion of

the welfare state. Richard Nixon’s library has been criticized for downplaying Watergate. Bill Clinton’s library barely mentions Monica Lewinsky. We shouldn’t be surprised. These facilities have increasingly become tabernacles glorifying presidencies rather than merely places of scholarship. Originally, Dwight Eisenhower envisioned these facilities as mere repositories for the paperwork that accumulates during a presidency, but they have morphed into something quite different. The Chicago Tribune reported recently the Obama Library could cost $500 million. Yes, you read that right – half a billion dollars. Plans already are underway to build it – and he’s not even out of office. By comparison, Abraham Lincoln had been dead about 140 years before a presidential library was opened in his honor. Richard Nixon built his

library in 1990 for $25 million – entirely with private dollars. That would be the equivalent of $44 million today. That should be the model for how all of these libraries are built. After all, we know anyone who has been elected president has an aptitude for raising money. That’s a necessary part of any successful campaign for the White House. So why not leave it up to retiring politicians to raise the money for their own libraries and leave taxpayers out of the mix? Let’s close the book on this idea of our cash-strapped state spending $100 million toward burnishing a contemporary politician’s legacy. That’s a task politicians can do well enough on their own.

Illinois GOP struggles for unity after primary By KERRY LESTER The Associated Press CHICAGO – Two leading candidates did not attend an Illinois Republican show of unity Wednesday as the party tried to close ranks for the general election in November after a bruising primary campaign. In a sign of challenges ahead, Kirk Dillard, the runner-up to businessman Bruce Rauner in the governor’s primary, and Jim Oberweis, the party’s nominee for U.S. Senate, skipped the “March to Victory” luncheon event at Chicago’s Union League Club. Rauner, a Winnetka venture capitalist and first-time

office seeker, stressed Wednesday that the party should focus on what unites it, not divides it, pitching a message of restoring economic prosperity to the state. Illinois has high debt and unemployment, and pensions for state workers are woefully underfunded. “We’re going to win this (governor’s) race because we’re working for everybody,” Rauner said. “All families are suffering.” Rauner faces Gov. Pat Quinn in November, who cruised to victory in the Democratic primary. But Republican state Sen. Dillard, who finished a better-than-expected two percentage points behind Rauner in Tuesday’s primary, was no-

where to be seen. A campaign aide said he had traveled to Springfield to attend hearings on the state budget. Oberweis, a state Senator who won the U.S. senate nomination over fellow businessman Doug Truax, also returned to Springfield to take part in the session. “Jim wanted to be at the luncheon,” campaign spokesman Tom Mannix said. “There was no way for him to attend given the timing of the legislative session.” Tensions between Rauner and Dillard ran particularly high during the primary. Of the four-man field, Dillard hit Rauner hardest, criticizing his business dealings and political

A former restaurant owner, Gray worked for the Cook County state’s attorney’s office for 18 years, assisting crime victims and witnesses. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel praised Gray’s work for equality and civil rights in a statement Wednesday.

“Vernita Gray was an inspiration to all who crossed her path, from President (Barack) Obama, who knew her by name, to the victims of violence she comforted and the young people for whom she was a fierce advocate,” Emanuel said. “Her legacy can be felt in the many institutions she supported and by every LGBT couple in Illinois who is now free to marry the person they love.”

GARY, Ind. – Police in northwestern Indiana say a man stole a private ambulance and led officers on a chase through several communities before he was caught in Chicago. Prompt Ambulance Services president Gary Miller says the ambulance was taken on Tuesday after the driver stopped at a dialysis clinic in Gary and left it to see whether a patient was ready. The Times of Munster and the Post-Tribune report police officers spotted the ambulance and followed it on a winding route through northern Lake County. Police say the driver then crossed into the south side of Chicago, where he stopped to end the 30-minute chase. A 34-year-old Gary man was arrested without incident.

Bikers, walkers will have new path near Navy Pier CHICAGO – Construction begins next week on an elevated path meant to help bikers and walkers safely navigate a heavily used area near Chicago’s Navy Pier.

It’ll allow bicyclists and pedestrians to avoid congested intersections near Navy Pier, one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions. Officials say the $60 million project is partially funded by federal grants meant to lessen congestion and improve air quality. It should be completed

Men get more than 100 years in cop’s death CHICAGO – A Cook County judge has sentenced two men to more than 100 years in prison in the 2009 shooting death of a Chicago police officer. Judge Jorge Alonso sentenced 24-year-old Kevin Walker to 120 years on Wednesday and 25-year-old Christopher Harris received 105 years. Walker and Harris were convicted in the death of Officer Alejandro “Alex” Valadez. The officer was shot to death as he investigated a shots fired call on the city’s south side in June 2009. A third defendant, 25-year-old Shawn Gaston, also was convicted in Valadez’s death. Gaston is serving a 125year prison sentence.

The clash was the latest in a series for the beleaguered party, which like the GOP nationwide has seen battles among its tea party libertarians, social conservatives and moderates. Last year, a former chairman of the party resigned after making statements supporting gay marriage. It behooves the party to bridge those gaps, Chair Jack Dorgan told the group Wednesday. Rauner, who supports abortion rights, has avoided social issues and focused on an economic message. Democrats hold nearly all state offices in Illinois and a Republican will need to woo independent voters in suburban Chicago to win.

By JIM SUHR

The Associated Press CHICAGO – Vernita Gray, a gay rights activist who wed her partner in Illinois’ first samesex marriage, has died at age 65. Gray died late Tuesday of cancer at the same Chicago home where she married Patricia Ewert in late November, family friend Jim Bennett told The Associated Press. Bennett was among friends who were gathered at the home when Gray died. Gray’s failing health and her wish to marry persuaded a federal judge to order that an expedited marriage license be granted to the couple ahead of the June 1 effective date of the state’s gay marriage law. A subsequent judge’s ruling then paved the way for more same-sex couples to marry early in some Illinois counties. Gray worked for gay rights for decades, advocating for same-sex marriage long before many other activists saw it as a possibility, Bennett said. To win over conservatives, she made the case that her Social Security survivor benefits should go to her partner, and her knack for working with

connections. Dillard was supported by a number of unions who attacked Rauner with television ads, and said a number of traditionally Democratic union members would cross over to support him. In turn, Rauner in one debate asked Dillard why he wasn’t running in the Democratic primary given his union support. Though the two candidates spoke by phone Tuesday evening after results were posted, Dillard has been noncommittal about working to elect Rauner. “We’ll talk,” Dillard said to reporters Tuesday evening, following his concession speech. “Bruce and I will talk.”

ST. LOUIS – Voters in a struggling southern Illinois county have rejected a ballot referendum meant to pressure the county’s governing board to restrict a debated oil drilling practice, leaving open the question of whether the measure failed because of confusion or the prevailing need for jobs. With nearly half of the county’s registered voters casting ballots during spring primaries traditionally marked by low turnout, the measure involving hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, failed Tuesday by a 600-vote margin, Johnson County Clerk Robin Harper-Whitehead said. More than 2,220 people voted against the provision, while about 1,600 backed it, Harper-Whitehead said. There are 14 outstanding absentee ballots. The nonbinding referendum was meant to advise the county’s commission whether it should resist the drilling practice that involves blasting rock formations deep under-

ground with water, sand and chemicals to release trapped oil and gas. While there’s question about whether Johnson County even has sizeable underground oil reserves, critics of Tuesday’s ballot measure had claimed environmentalists were hoping to make the county an anti-fracking foothold from which they could extend their campaign to other counties. Harper-Whitehead and others in the county had welcomed an Election Day resolution of the issue, which for months had divided residents and hijacked the County Commission meetings. Fracking opponents worried about the possible risks it poses to public health and the environment, including the groundwater. But Monty Sanders – owner of 50 acres and operator of a small-engine repair shop – and others opposed to fracking restrictions argued that the drilling could provide an economic jolt to the county’s economy, pointing to the boon it has been in some places. “There isn’t much down here, and something like that

could bring in thousands of jobs. It’s a big deal. We need jobs, and we need revenue,” Sanders, 59, said Wednesday, a day after voting against the referendum. “I’m a landowner, and if I wanted fracking on my property, it’s my business. By God if I could, I would.” The state’s Legislature passed a law last year allowing fracking in Illinois, and the state Department of Natural Resources is in the process of drafting rules to govern it. Calling Tuesday’s results “disappointing,” Annette McMichael of Southern Illinoisans Against Fracturing Our Environment said anti-fracking forces who petitioned to get the question on the ballot would weigh their recourses and insisted that the matter is unresolved in Johnson County. McMichael suspects voter confusion influenced the outcome, citing the referendum’s language: “Shall the people’s right to local self-government be asserted by Johnson County to ban corporate fracking as a violation of their right to health, safety and a clean environment?”

ANALYSIS

Russia tests Obama foreign policy tools By JULIE PACE The Associated Press WASHINGTON – For President Barack Obama, Russia’s aggressive annexation of Crimea is testing central tenets of his foreign policy philosophy: his belief in the power of direct diplomacy, his preference for using economic sanctions as punishment and his inclination to proceed cautiously in order to avoid creating larger long-term problems. The question facing the White House now is whether actions that have done little to stop Russia from claiming Crimea are tough enough to

stop further escalations by Moscow. And if they continue to prove insufficient, what else is Obama willing to do to change Vladimir Putin’s calculus? The menu of additional options appears limited. The White House says a military response is not being considered, and officials have so far resisted calls to supply Ukraine’s fledgling government with military equipment. Instead, the U.S. is likely to focus on financial assistance to Ukraine and deepening economic sanctions against Russian officials whom the White House deems responsible for the crisis.

White House spokesman Jay Carney vowed Wednesday that “more action will be taken.” He indicated that financial penalties could spread to the Russian arms sector, wealthy oligarchs and additional Kremlin officials. And Vice President Joe Biden, trying to soothe concerns in nations on Russia’s borders, said in Lithuania the U.S. will respond to any aggression against its NATO allies. He declared, “We’re in this together with you.” But thus far, sanctions levied by both the U.S. and the European Union have done little to deter Russian President Putin. Nor have Obama’s

direct appeals to Putin in four lengthy phone calls or his efforts to isolate Russia internationally by rallying allies to suspend preparations for the economic summit Putin was scheduled to host this summer. “We have gotten ourselves backed into a pretty bad corner,” says Rosa Brooks, an international law professor at Georgetown University who served in the Pentagon during Obama’s first term. “Putin quite correctly calculated that there’s really not much we can do.” Almost every punishment or warning from the U.S. has been followed by defiance from the Russian leader. Hours after

the capital of Kiev amid rallies protesting his decision to abandon plans for deepening ties with Europe. On Sunday, voters in Crimea overwhelmingly cast ballots in favor of joining Russia. On Wednesday, Russian forces seized military installations across Crimea. The White House has decried Russia’s maneuvers as a violation of international law and does not recognize Moscow’s annexation of Crimea. Putin’s actions have opened Obama to fresh criticism from Republicans, who argue that the second-term president, already politically weakened at home, now looks wobbly on the world stage.

the U.S. and EU imposed their first round of asset freezes and other sanctions against Russian and Ukrainian officials, Putin formally recognized Crimea’s independence from Ukraine. The following day, he signed a treaty making Crimea Russian territory. “If you push a spring too hard, at some point it will spring back,” the Russian leader said in a fiery speech Tuesday. “You always need to remember this.” The crisis in Crimea has become a flashpoint in a new dispute between East and West.

Malaysia and FBI analyze missing pilot’s simulator By IAN MADER The Associated Press KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – The FBI joined forces with Malaysian authorities in analyzing deleted data on a flight simulator belonging to the pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane, while distraught relatives of the passengers unleashed their anger Wednesday – wailing in frustration at 12 days of uncertainty. The anguish of relatives of the 239 people on Flight 370 boiled over at a briefing near Kuala Lumpur’s airport. Two Chinese women who shouted at Malaysian authorities and unfurled a banner accusing officials of “hiding the truth” were removed from the room. In a heart-wrenching scene, one woman screamed in sorrow as she was dragged away. “I want you to help me to find my son! I want to see my son!” one of the two unidentified women said. “We have been here for 10 days.” Files containing records of flight simulations were deleted Feb. 3 from the device found in the home of the Malaysia Airlines pilot, Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah, Malaysian police chief Khalid Abu said. It was not immediately clear whether investigators thought that deleting the files was unusual. The files might hold signs of unusual flight

paths that could help explain where the missing plane went. Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein told a news conference that Zaharie is considered innocent until proven guilty. He said members of the pilot’s family are cooperating in the investigation. A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation by name, said the FBI has been given electronic data to analyze. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said in Washington that the FBI was working with Malaysian authorities. “At this point, I don’t think we have any theories,” Holder said. Flight 370 disappeared March 8 on a night flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Malaysian authorities have not ruled out any possible explanations, but have said the evidence so far suggests the flight was deliberately turned back across Malaysia to the Strait of Malacca, with its communications systems disabled. They are unsure what happened next and why. Investigators have identified two giant arcs of territory spanning the possible positions of the plane about 7½ hours after takeoff, based on its last faint signal to a satellite – an hourly “handshake” signal that continues even

when communications are switched off. The arcs stretch up as far as Kazakhstan in central Asia and down deep into the southern Indian Ocean. Police are considering the possibility of hijacking, sabotage, terrorism or issues related to the mental health of the pilots or anyone else on board, and have asked for background checks from abroad on all foreign passengers. Hishammuddin said such checks have been received for all the foreigners except those from Ukraine and Russia – which account for three passengers. “So far, no information of significance on any passengers has been found,” he said. The 53-year-old pilot joined Malaysia Airlines in 1981 and had more than 18,000 hours of flight experience. People who knew Zaharie from his involvement in opposition political circles in Malaysia and other areas of his life have described him as sociable, humble, caring and dedicated to his job. The crisis has exposed the lack of a failsafe way of tracking modern passenger planes on which data transmission systems and transponders – which make them visible to civilian radar – have been severed. At enormous cost, 26 countries are helping Malaysia look for the plane.

NEW YORK – Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law offered a rare glimpse of the al-Qaida leader in the hours after the Sept. 11 attacks, recounting during surprise testimony Wednesday in a Manhattan courtroom how the two met that night in a cave in Afghanistan. “Did you learn about what happened ... the attacks on the United States?” the son-inlaw, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, recalled bin Laden asking him. “We are the ones who did it.” The testimony came as Abu Ghaith’s trial on charges he conspired to kill Americans and aid al-Qaida as a spokesman for the terrorist group took a dramatic turn. His decision to take the witness stand was announced by his lawyer, Stanley Cohen, who surprised a nearly empty courtroom that quickly filled with spectators as word spread. Abu Ghaith testified that bin Laden seemed worried that night and asked what he

thought would happen next. Abu Ghaith said he predicted America “will not settle until it accomplishes two things: to kill you and topple the state of the Taliban.” Bin Laden responded: “ ‘You’re being too pessimistic,’” Abu Ghaith recalled. Bin Laden then offered the onetime imam a job that would gain him infamy as well as a place in the inner circle of the world’s most wanted terrorist. “I want to deliver a message to the world,” Abu Ghaith said bin Laden told him. “... I want you to deliver that message.” The testimony was a rare gambit by the defense, a lastditch effort to counter a mountain of evidence against Abu Ghaith, including an alleged confession and videos showing him sitting beside Bin Laden on Sept. 12, 2001, and another in which he warned Americans that “the storm of airplanes will not abate.” The defense has never disputed that Abu Ghaith associated with bin Laden after 9/11, but it contends he was recruited

as a religious teacher and orator, and had no role in plotting more attacks. On cross-examination, though, Abu Ghaith admitted that he sent his pregnant wife, six daughters and a son to Kuwait while he went to Afghanistan on Sept. 7, 2001, after hearing inside and outside al-Qaida training camps that something big was going to happen soon. “I had heard something would happen but I didn’t know what,” he said in response to Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Ferrara’s questions. Lacing some questions with sarcasm, Ferrara took particular aim at Abu Ghaith’s claims that he was merely embellishing bin Laden’s “bullet points” on videotapes as he condemned America. And Abu Ghaith’s testimony also gave the prosecutor an opportunity to again show video clips of Abu Ghaith angrily denouncing America and of the second plane hitting a World Trade Center tower on Sept. 11.

Inmate ‘baked to death’ in cell By JAKE PEARSON The Associated Press NEW YORK – Jerome Murdough was just looking for a warm place to sleep on a chilly night last month when he curled up in an enclosed stairwell on the roof of a Harlem public housing project where he was arrested for trespassing. A week later, the mentally ill homeless man was found dead in a Rikers Island jail cell that four city officials say had overheated to at least 100 degrees, apparently because of malfunctioning equipment. The officials told The Associated Press that the 56-yearold former Marine was on anti-psychotic and anti-seizure medication, which may have made him more vulnerable to heat. He also apparently did not open a small vent in his cell, as other inmates did, to let in cool air. “He basically baked to death,” said one of the officials, who all spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not permitted to discuss specifics of the case. The medical examiner’s office said an autopsy was inconclusive and that more tests were needed to determine Murdough’s exact cause of death. But the officials, all with detailed knowledge of the case, say initial indications from the autopsy and investigation point to extreme dehydration or heat stroke. Advocates for mentally ill inmates in New York say the death represents the failure of the city’s justice system on almost every level: by arresting Murdough instead of finding him help, by setting bail at a prohibitive $2,500 and by not supervising him closely in what is supposed to be a special observation unit for inmates with mental illnesses. In a statement issued Wednesday, Department of Correction Acting Commissioner Mark Cranston called

A picture of Jerome Murdough is held March 12 by his mother, Alma Murdough (left), and sister, Cheryl Warner, at Alma Murdough’s home in the Queens borough of New York. Jerome Murdough, a mentally ill, homeless former Marine arrested for sleeping in the roof landing of a New York City public housing project during one of the coldest recorded winters in city history, died last month in a Rikers Island jail cell that multiple city officials say was at least 100 degrees when his body was discovered. Murdough’s death “unfortunate” and reiterated that an internal investigation will look into the entire episode, “including issues of staff performance and the adequacy of procedures.” Cranston also acknowledged the temperature in Murdough’s cell was “unusually high” and said that action has been taken to fix mechanical problems to ensure safe temperatures, “particularly in areas housing vulnerable inmates.” The department said it had addressed two contributing factors an outside consultant identified as causing the excess heat. It also said temperature checks immediately after the death revealed that several cells nearby were over 80 degrees. Murdough’s 75-year-old mother, Alma Murdough, said she did not learn of her son’s death until the AP contacted

her last week, nearly a month after he died. His public defender was told of the death three days after the inmate was found, the DOC said. “He was a very lovely, caring guy,” said Murdough, adding that her son had bipolar disorder and schizophrenia and that she had not seen him in about three years. “He had beer problems. Drinking beer. That was his downfall. Other than that, he was a very nice guy. He’d give you the shirt off his back.” Family members say Murdough grew up in Queens and joined the Marine Corps right out of high school, doing at least one stint in Okinawa, Japan. When he returned from the service, his family said, both his mental illness and thirst for alcohol became more pronounced, and he would often disappear for months at a time, finding warmth in hos-

pitals, shelters and the streets. “When he wanted to venture off, we let him, we allowed him to come and go,” recalled his sister, Cheryl Warner. “He always came back.” Murdough’s criminal record included 11 misdemeanor convictions for trespassing, drinking in public and minor drug charges, said Ivan Vogel, a public defender who represented him at his arraignment on the trespassing charge. According to the city officials, Murdough was locked alone into his 6-by-10 cinderblock cell at about 10:30 p.m. Feb. 14, a week after his arrest. Because he was in the mental observation unit, he was supposed to be checked every 15 minutes as part of suicide watch, they said. But Murdough was not discovered until four hours later, at about 2:30 a.m. Feb. 15. He was slumped over in his bed and already dead.

could potentially lead to a change in results. Less common is a court-ordered full recount, which is the only way to change the outcome of the election. Prim now will likely face a general election challenge by Woodstock-based labor attorney Jim Harrison, who debunked speculation that he would drop out. “I hate to crush the Bill Prim campaign’s hopes. I’m not dropping out,” he said. “It wouldn’t matter which [candi-

date] won. I’m in.” Harrison, 56, of Johnsburg, said Tuesday’s split vote signifies that voters want change, but also point to a fractured Republican Party. “Certainly this is once instance where nearly as many voters supported one candidate or the other,” he said. “I’m not sure the Republican Party is at a consensus yet, although they’ve certainly picked a candidate.” State Democrats had few choices on Tuesday’s ballots.

According to McHenry County returns that do not include early votes, 3,314 voters pulled a Democratic ballot. That could mean either Democrats crossed party lines, or simply didn’t show up. Schultz said voter turnout was just below 17 percent. Harrison on Monday can begin collecting the more than 6,000 signatures he needs to be on the November ballot as an independent candidate. Prim and Zinke each needed 517 signatures.

people is to improve the business climate, wants to curtail government unions much like Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker did. Republicans see President Barack Obama’s home state – one of the Midwest’s last Democratic strongholds – as one of their top two opportunities to pick up a governorship, largely because of Illinois’ massive financial problems. On Wednesday the Republican Governors Association donated $750,000 to Rauner’s campaign, money intended to show the group is “all-in” to defeat Quinn. “We definitely see it as a winnable race, and we’re going to be highly involved,” said RGA communications director Jon Thompson. The Democratic Governors Association and organized labor also say a Quinn victory will be a top priority, as unions try to avoid the kinds of blows they’ve felt under GOP governors in places like Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana. Organized labor spent millions on ads during the primary that attacked Rauner, who has called Walker and former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels his role models. “The last thing Illinois needs is a governor who looks out for the wealthiest among us while turning his back on the middle-class, and we plan to hold Rauner accountable every step of the way,” said Michael Murray, spokesman for the union coalition. Quinn, who is seeking a second term, began airing his first campaign ad focused on Rauner’s changing stance on minimum wage during Tuesday’s primary. Quinn wants to raise Illinois’ $8.25 wage to at least $10. Rauner said he’d like to lower it then later said he’d raise it under the right circumstances.

On Wednesday, Quinn held a news conference at a Chicago construction site, where he thanked union members and then drew attention to Rauner’s wealth. The multimillionaire spent more than $14 million on the GOP primary, including more than $6 million of his own money. “This is a billionaire with nine homes, nine mansions, calling for a reduction in the minimum wage,” Quinn said. “He has a lot of explaining to do.” Rauner accused Quinn of “class warfare” and said he isn’t anti-union or out of touch. After spending much of the primary blasting government union “bosses” and “career politicians,” his message since winning the nomination has focused more on helping working families, from a factory worker who lost his job to a single mother “who’s struggling and wants a real shot at the American dream and a better life for herself and her children.” “This is the future of our state on the line. We are all here because we love our state, we care deeply about our families,” Rauner said following a GOP event Wednesday. “[Quinn] is trying to divide high income folks from low income folks. Division doesn’t help anything.” Rauner, who told the Chicago Sun-Times he is part of “the .01 percent” in terms of wealth, doesn’t apologize for his fortune, noting he earned it through hard work – not an inheritance – and that he and his wife have donated millions to causes such as education and the American Red Cross. Republicans see Quinn as vulnerable because of the state’s budget problems, a 67 percent income tax hike he pushed for and signed, and the Midwest’s highest unemployment. Rauner frequently calls him “the worst governor in America.”

Egypt forces raid bomb factory near Cairo By SARAH EL DEEB The Associated Press CAIRO – Egyptian security forces raided a warehouse suspected of being a militants’ bomb factory on Cairo’s outskirts, sparking an hourslong battle Wednesday with gunmen that left two military officers and six militants dead, the Interior Ministry said. The assault was one of the first known raids in the Nile Delta against a suspected hideout and factory of Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, the main militant group that has been waging an insurgency that began in the Sinai but has spread in past months to the Delta and into

the capital, Cairo. The hideout highlighted the group’s increasing encroachment on the capital. “It is the first time to bust a terrorist cell of this size” in the Delta area, said Hani Abdel-Latif, the police spokesman. The Sinai-based Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, or Champions of Jerusalem, has carried out several dramatic attacks in the capital, including a car bombing that struck Cairo’s main security headquarters and a failed assassination attempt on the interior minister, using a suicide bomber. The raid took place before dawn Wednesday. Acting on

a tip, a joint force of police, military and special forces attacked the group taking cover in a timber workshop in Arab Sharkas village in Qalioubiya province, neighboring Cairo to the north. Abdel-Latif told The Associated Press that the area is part of a desert area stretching to the Suez Canal city of Ismailia and beyond to Sinai. He said militants have used the stretch as an approach to launch operations in and around Cairo. “The security crackdown on the ground in Sinai has pushed (the militants) to move to these areas in the Delta through back roads,” Ab-

del-Latif said. In the eight months since the military removed Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, the military and police have been waging a campaign against the militants in Sinai, going after their hideouts in the region along the border with Gaza and Israel, closing smuggling tunnels and arrested or killing hundreds of suspected militants. But militants have increasingly taken their attacks to the capital, and closer in the cities of the Delta, targeting troops and installations. Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, based in Sinai, has claimed responsibility for most of the major

attacks in and near Cairo. The most recent attack came Saturday when gunmen stormed a military police checkpoint, killing six soldiers, in an area not far from the workshop raided Wednesday. During the raid early Wednesday, militants opened fire on security forces and set off car bombs, sparking a gun battle that lasted several hours, the ministry said. The fighting killed a brigadier general and a colonel, both explosive experts, military spokesman Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said in a post on his Facebook page. Authorities arrested eight suspected militants, Abdel-Latif said.

Militant key to Mideast talks

Russia: Iran nuke talks may suffer over Ukraine

By MOHAMMED DARAGHMEH The Associated Press RAMALLAH, West Bank – A prominent Palestinian uprising leader imprisoned by Israel could soon emerge as the key to keeping fragile U.S.-led peace efforts alive. According to several top officials, the Palestinians are seeking the freedom of Marwan Barghouti, who is serving multiple life sentences for his alleged role in killings of Israelis, as part of any plan to extend negotiations with Israel beyond an April deadline. A release of Barghouti, a popular figure among Palestinians, could inject new life into the troubled peace process, boost embattled Palestinian President MahMarwan moud Abbas, Barghouti and even provide the Palestinians with a plausible successor to their 78-year-old leader. But Israel seems unlikely to approve the request, setting the stage for a possible breakdown in the talks. Under heavy U.S. pressure, Israel and the Palestinians restarted negotiations last July, setting a ninemonth target for wrapping up a comprehensive peace deal establishing a Palestinian state and ending a century of conflict. After realizing this was unrealistic, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry scaled back his ambitions and said he would aim for a “framework” peace deal by the April deadline. With even that more modest goal in question, the sides are now searching for a formula that will allow the talks to continue. The Palestinians have been skeptical about the chances of success, distrusting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. A prolonging of the talks means continuing shelving of their previous plans to press for recognition, even without a peace deal, with various international bodies. The Palestinians have two demands for an extension: a freeze in Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem and the release of the most senior prisoners held by Israel, first and foremost Barghouti, two Palestinian officials told The Associated Press — senior official Nabil Shaath and Prisoner Affairs Minister Issa Qaraqi. Israel was already forced to release dozens of prisoners convicted of deadly violence to make the current round of talks possible, but Barghouti remains jailed. With Israel not expected to halt settlement construction, the Palestinians say they will drive a tough bargain on the prisoner issue.

He said authorities seized about 50 kilograms of explosives, as well as weapons, ammunition, explosive belts and prepared bombs. Private television station CBC aired footage from the area showing security officials defusing an explosive belt. The workshop could be seen from afar, and brick and metal debris were strewn on the ground. The station, citing residents, said the battle began around 2 a.m. and ended five hours later. A relative of the owner of the workshop told the station the suspected militants have been rented the workshop two months ago.

Pro-Russian self-defense force members get through an entrance Wednesday to the Ukrainian Navy headquarters in Sevastopol, Crimea. An Associated Press photographer said several hundred militiamen took down the gate and made their way onto the base. They then raised the Russian flag in the square by the headquarters.

Ukraine surrenders to Crimea seizure, plans troop withdrawal The ASSOCIATED PRESS SEVASTOPOL, Crimea – Surrendering to Russia’s inexorable seizure of Crimea, Ukraine announced plans Wednesday for mass troop withdrawals from the strategic peninsula as Moscow-loyal forces seized control of Kiev’s naval headquarters here and detained its commander. Attempting to face down the unblinking incursion, Ukraine said it would hold joint military exercises with the United States and Britain. Hours after masked Russian-speaking troops forced their way onto Ukraine’s main naval base, forlorn Ukrainian soldiers streamed out carrying clothing and other belongings in bags. A group of local militia and Cossacks, later joined by officers from Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, looked on. Just how many retreating troops Ukraine will have to absorb was unclear as many servicemen in Crimea have already switched sides to Russia, but authorities say it was prepared to relocate as many as 25,000 soldiers and their families. Humbled but defiant, Ukraine lashed out symbolically at Russia by declaring its intent to leave the Moscow-dominated Commonwealth of Independent States, a loose alliance of 11 former Soviet nations. The last nation to leave the group was Georgia, which lost a brief war with neighboring Russia in 2008 and ended up losing two separatist territories. Vice President Joe Biden, in Lithuania trying to reassure nations bordering Russia alarmed by the sight of an expansion-minded neighbor, said the U.S. would stand by them. “We’re in this with you, together,” Biden said.

Crimea’s absorption came after a hastily organized referendum in which the population overwhelmingly, albeit under conditions akin to martial law, voted in favor of seceding from Ukraine and joining Russia. Russia’s Constitutional Court chairman, Valery Zorkin, said Wednesday the treaty signed by Putin has been ruled valid, meaning it now only requires ratification by the Russian parliament. On Wednesday morning, militiamen under apparent Russian command barged their way into Ukraine’s naval headquarters in Sevastopol, detaining the head of Ukraine’s navy and seizing the facility. The incursion, which Ukraine’s Defense Ministry described as being led by a self-described local defense force, Cossacks and

“aggressive women,” proceeded with no resistance. Upon gaining entrance to the base, the storming party raised a Russian flag on the headquarters square. The unarmed militiamen waited for an hour on the square and, following the arrival of the commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, they took over the building. By afternoon, they were in full control of the naval headquarters, a set of three-story white concrete buildings with blue trim. The Ukrainian Defense Ministry said Rear Adm. Sergei Haiduk was detained and a news agency close to the Russian-backed local authorities reported that he had been summoned for questioning by prosecutors. Later in the day, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu ordered the Crimean authorities to release Haiduk. Andriy Parubiy, secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Coun-

cil, said the government was drawing up plans to evacuate its outnumbered troops from Crimea back to the mainland and will seek U.N. support to turn the peninsula into a demilitarized zone. “We are working out a plan of action so that we can transfer not just servicemen, but first of all members of their family who are in Crimea, quickly and effectively to mainland Ukraine,” Parubiy said. Parubiy also announced Ukraine would hold military maneuvers with the United States and Britain, signatories, along with Russia, of the 1994 Budapest Memorandum. He provided no details. The document was designed to guarantee Ukraine’s territorial integrity when it surrendered its share of Soviet nuclear arsenals to Russia after the Soviet Union broke up in 1991. Ukraine has accused Russia of breaching the agreement by taking over the Crimean Peninsula.

VIENNA – U.S.-Russian tensions over Ukraine spilled over into nuclear talks with Iran Wednesday, with Moscow’s chief envoy at the negotiations warning that his country may take “retaliatory measures” that could hurt attempts to persuade Tehran to cut back on programs that could make atomic arms. The statement, by Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, appeared to be the most serious threat of reprisal by Moscow for Western sanctions against Russia over its annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea region. Russia is key to attempts to coax Iran into significant longterm curbs of its nuclear program in exchange for relief from U.N. and other sanctions. Iran insists it does not want nuclear arms but is seeking a deal that will result in full sanctions relief. The Russian threat, hours after the latest negotiating round ended, appeared to catch Washington off guard. Days ahead of the meeting, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki had said she expects Russia to “remain an active partner” in the talks. During the two-day talks, Western officials involved described Russia’s participation as constructive and unchanged by the Ukraine tensions. Ryabkov was cited by the Interfax news agency as saying Russia may feel compelled to respond to U.S. and European Union actions. He said Russia considers “reunification” with Crimea more important than the developments surrounding Iran’s nuclear program. “We wouldn’t like to use these talks as an element of the game of raising the stakes taking into account the sentiments in some European capitals, Brussels and Washington,” Ryabkov was quoted as saying. “But if they force us into that, we will take retaliatory measures here as well.”

Morocco sees record 2013 tourism RABAT, Morocco – Morocco’s tourism minister says a record-breaking 10 million people visited the North African country in 2013, indicating the industry is recovering from the setbacks of the Arab Spring revolutions. After several years of flat growth, Morocco on Tuesday reported a 7.2 percent increase in arrivals since 2012. Morocco, whose beaches, exotic cities and pristine mountains are popular among Europeans, relies on tourism for 10 percent of its GDP, the second-largest contributor after agriculture. Tourism Minister Lahcen Haddad reported a 9 percent increase in the number of nights in tourist hotels but earnings were nearly the same as 2012 at $7.2 billion. He predicted another 8 percent increase for arrivals in 2014. Tourism dropped across North Africa amid the unrest generated by the Arab Spring revolutions, especially in Tunisia and Egypt.

Looking back at the primary Tuesday’s primary election has come and gone, and, as with any election, a few storylines stand out. First and foremost, we offer congratulations to those who won their primary races, including Republicans Bill Prim (McHenry County sheriff), Mary McClellan (McHenry County clerk) and Glenda Miller (McHenry County treasurer). The biggest winners Tuesday night, however, were McHenry County residents who care about accountability in government. As of 2016, the County Board chairman will no longer be held accountable to only other County Board members and the voters in his or her district. Instead, the County Board chairman will be elected countywide by all voters in McHenry County. Voters indicated this was their wish, passing a referendum saying so with 18,722 “yes” votes to 14,134 “no” votes. Results, of course, are unofficial until the votes are canvased in two weeks. Speaking of votes, not nearly enough of them were cast Tuesday in McHenry County. Of the 204,440 voters registered in the county, only 16.97 percent of them – or 34,688 – voted. That’s pathetic. Think your vote doesn’t count? Andrew Zinke might disagree with you. Nancy Gonsiorek, too. So would Ersel Schuster. Zinke lost to Prim in his bid for the sheriff’s nomination by 98 votes. Gonsiorek lost her bid for a Republican nomination in County Board District 3 by 28 votes. And Schuster, an incumbent, missed out on a Republican nomination in County Board District 6 by 62 votes. Your vote does matter. Looking ahead to the November general election, a couple things stand out. First, how will the Republican Party in McHenry County look after a change in leadership come April? And will a fractured party rally behind Prim in a sheriff’s race against Jim Harrison, who indicated Wednesday he still planned to run for sheriff as an independent? Secondly, will the Democratic Party in the county step up and give voters a choice come November? There will be contested County Board races, but, as of now, Democrats have nobody slated to run against Prim and Harrison (sheriff), McClellan (clerk), Miller (treasurer), Karen McConnaughay (33rd state Senate), Barb Wheeler (64th state Representative), Steven Andersson (65th state representative) or Mike Tryon (66th state Representative). Oct. 7 is the last day to register to vote for November’s general election. If you aren’t registered, please do so. If you are registered or will be, make sure you exercise your right to vote.

Flood program still broken In an act of compassion, the government will postpone reforms to the National Flood Insurance Program. Premiums skyrocketed beyond anyone’s expectations, and still-suffering Hurricane Sandy victims faced being priced out of their homes. Families were desperate for relief, and lawmakers provided it. President Obama is expected to sign a fouryear moratorium this week. But this delay, while humane, leaves in place a broken system that is $26 billion in debt and encourages property owners to build in the riskiest flood zones. Congress must ensure that its reforms, designed to make us more resilient after devastating storms, aren’t undone. The (Newark, N.J.) Star-Ledger

8IT’S YOUR WRITE More waste than at MCC To the Editor: I thought McHenry County College administration was bad. The County Transportation Committee makes them look like amateurs. MCC only wanted to waste $42 million (well, for a starter). The County Transportation Committee wants to waste $115 million. That’s how much they want to “fix” Randall Road between Ackman and County Line roads. Why does the road need to be fixed? To save us from traffic problems that might or might not happen – in 15 years. Nobody knows what’s going to happen in 15 years. The county’s population is smaller today than in the 2010 Census. But wait, there’s more. Divide that number – $115 million – by 109,000 – the number of families in McHenry County. Conclusion: The Transportation Committee wants over $1,000 from every single family in McHenry County. Is it worth $1,000 to you to – maybe – save a couple of minutes drive time 15 years from now? Divide $115 million by the 3.5 miles to be fixed. The project cost is $33 million per mile. The American Road & Transportation Builders Association says the cost to add

two lanes to an existing highway is $4 million to $5 million. Do you think the county should overpay by six to eight times to fix what might be a problem in 15 years? It’s not the road that’s getting fixed. It’s the taxpayers. Citizens of McHenry County, if you don’t contact your County Board members today, then you deserve the government you get.

Sickened with Amati To the Editor: As a parent and grandparent, I was sickened when I learned about the actions which prompted Woodstock Police Sgt. Chip Amati’s suspension, and even more so by the apparent desire of most local leaders to pass the blame onto the next elected official. State Rep. Jack Franks and Undersheriff Andrew Zinke are a welcome and needed exception to this pattern. While recent meetings at City Hall have seen city of Woodstock officials lay the blame for Amati’s continued employment at the feet of the police disciplinary board, Franks and Zinke have proposed a

Target your communication To the Editor: A fellow reader recently wrote a letter to the editor about minimum wages, but began his missive as though addressed to President Obama, Gov. Pat Quinn and U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin. The gentleman is making what I call a good wage for part-time

work ($15-plus per hour), but suggested he was no longer special, as others across the country are working to increase their own wages in other venues. What the one has to do with the other, I don’t know. More important to me, however, did this fellow reader actually write to Obama, Quinn and Durbin, as well as to the Northwest Herald? The three named in the salutation may or may not even be familiar with this newspaper. My guess is that readers who write these kinds of letters to the Herald might be weakening their stance, and that of us all, by not addressing their voices to those who need to hear it most. In this case, Obama, Quinn and Durbin. Art Dulan Crystal Lake

Republicans’ do-nothing strategy a midterm mistake Republicans think they’ve hit on the perfect strategy to win back the Senate in 2014: Sit back and let it happen. Everywhere they look, things are going their way. President Barack Obama’s job approval is in the low 40s. His health care law is doing a bit worse than that. Many of the Senate elections that will be contested in November are in states that went for John McCain and Mitt Romney in the last two presidential elections. Polls show the party even has a shot in some blue states, such as Michigan, which last elected a Republican senator 20 years ago. Republican David Jolly won a special House election last week in a Florida district that went for Obama twice. That victory added to Republicans’ sense that they have momentum, and it’s leading them to think they’ve improved their turnout machine since 2012. So a lot of the party’s leaders are turning passivity into a strategy. What they’re telling one another is: Don’t make yourself an issue. Don’t

make serious legislative proposals, because they will only be targets for Democrats. If Republicans make sure not to nominate weak or extreme candidates, and simply rail against Obama’s health care law, they will win. This strategy has ease of execution going for it. Coming up with policy proposals that make sense and will fly politically, and then convincing colleagues to back them, is hard work a lot of Republicans would rather avoid. And inaction might pay off: Republicans probably will make gains if they do nothing, just because it’s a midterm election under a Democratic president. Inaction also minimizes risks. Uniting behind some ill-considered policy initiative could indeed weaken the party’s momentum. The flip side of that advantage is that the passive strategy doesn’t maximize opportunity. It’s true that public confidence in Obama and the Democrats has fallen on a broad range of issues, from health care to foreign policy. But that doesn’t

VIEWS Ramesh Ponnuru mean people have gained confidence that Republicans would do well on those issues. It only means that Republicans have an opening to make their case. Individual Republican lawmakers have proposed far-reaching reforms of health care, the tax code, higher education and jobs programs. Each of those proposals comes with political risks. But each could also help Republicans position themselves as pragmatic problemsolvers rather than merely Obamahaters. They could finish their case against the administration’s agenda by arguing there’s a better way to get the results Americans want. And sometimes the lack of a proposal is itself a target. That Republicans never have united behind a health care proposal that would do much to increase the number

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

of people with insurance has been one of the Democrats’ top talking points for years now. Sure, they say, Obamacare has its flaws, but the Republicans have no alternative: They would leave millions of people uninsured. Counting on Democratic unpopularity also could prove too complacent. Take a look at the Huffington Post’s poll averages. Obama’s net job approval rating is slightly up since the start of February. His rating on the economy has been improving since early December. He has been rising on foreign policy since late September. While the president is still “upside down,” as the operatives say, on all those measures, Republicans would be foolish to assume that the trend is their friend. And even if Republicans succeed by taking the path of least resistance, they will be storing up future trouble. What if they win the Senate? In that case, Congress will have to move legislation. Republicans will have to come up with

attractive conservative bills then, so that Obama will either feel it necessary to sign them or pay a political price for vetoing them. They will be in much better shape if they have campaigned on some of these ideas. That way they can say that the public knew what it would be getting by voting for Republicans. Republicans also will be better able to achieve unity among party congressmen, who will be more likely to feel that they’re invested in these ideas as a group. If Republicans want to govern after 2016, for that matter, they should start preparing now: coming up with an agenda, selling it to the public and refining it as they go. But those considerations involve thinking past the next elections, and that’s not something that comes naturally to a lot of politicians. • Ramesh Ponnuru is a Bloomberg View columnist, a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and a senior editor at the National Review.

school policy violations and some of the cases are “more brazen in their nature,” McHenry West High School Assistant Principal Carl Valliantos said. Because e-cigarettes are odorless and the vapor dissipates quickly,

some students have taken to vaporizing in public, even during class, he said. “When you’re dealing with an issue where you have that much audacity, you have to do something,” Superintendent Mike Roberts said. “Challenging is a part of growing up, but there’s limits to that as well.” The nature of e-cigarettes raises another significant concern for administrators, Valliantos said. Some schools have seen the devices filled with chemicals other that just nicotine. That’s why administrators are

proposing an even stricter punishment for students caught with e-cigarettes, he said. The recommendation would need school board approval before it would take effect. Under the current policy, which is in its second year, electronic cigarettes and their tobacco counterparts carry the same punishment, two days of in-school suspension or its alternative for a first violation. The change being considered by administrators would make a first violation for electronic cigarettes

ELGIN: WORLD LEADERS FORUM

Rice talks leadership, Ukraine at Judson forum By CHARLES MENCHACA cmenchaca@shawmedia.com ELGIN – Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Wednesday told a standing room only crowd that if those in attendance don’t find their passion, it will find them. “Life has a funny way of making those odd turns,” Rice said. “Embrace those turns.” Rice touched on multiple topics during her keynote address at Judson University’s 2014 World Leaders Forum. More than 600 students, staff and community members filled the university’s Herrick Chapel to listen to Rice. In addition to talking about her years in Washington, D.C., during the George W. Bush administration, Rice was asked about the ongoing crisis of Russia moving to

annex Crimea in southern Ukraine. “We have to send strong enough signals so [Russian President Vladmir] Putin doesn’t misevaluate and move farther west,” she told Cheryl Burton, moderator and ABC Channel 7 anchor, during an onstage question and answer session. The topic came up again during an impromptu dialogue between Rice and Ukranian student Anatoliy Tkach. He ended up speaking to her when Burton asked for a volunteer to speak Russian with Rice. Tkach, who came from the western Ukrainian city of Chernivtsi, said his best friend overseas said the crisis seems more like a battle between the U.S. and Russia and doesn’t really involve Ukranians.

This time, Rice emphasized that democracy is for every human being. “My feeling is that this should be a decision for the Ukranian people,” she said of the annexation. Tkach, who was one of 20 students chosen to sit onstage during Rice’s appearance, called the unexpected dialogue the greatest experience of his life so far. He said he was humbled by Rice because he sees himself as a minority like her. Tkach plans to offer a soccer ministry in his home village after he completes his sports and youth ministry studies at Judson. Chicago resident Mary Jo Wilhem said she also was inspired by Rice’s remarks. “She encouraged people not to close off their life,” Wilhelm said. “There are possibilities still to come.”

GIRLS ON THE RUN Ansley Morlock “Girls on the Run is so much fun!” my teammates and I always yell at the end of a fun practice. Hi, I’m Ansley Morlock, otherwise known as Athlete Ansley! On this bright cheerful day, I am here to tell you about how you can become a girl on the run too, even if you are not in Girls on the Run. I choose to celebrate what makes me unique. Last week, we learned to be the girl on the run we want to be. Choosing to pay attention, help out and be yourself were some of the things we came up with for what a girl on the run is. We learned we have to support ourselves if we want to be happy about ourselves and live the life we want to live. We have to be positive to know that we can do it and that we are strong enough. We choose to do what we like and not copy anyone else. I learned that I’m good

at sharing feelings, at being courageous, giving, writing, running, softball and art. I choose to do these things that make me feel happy and loving. We also learned last week that being negative doesn’t help us to be happy, it just makes us worse. Being positive makes us happy and feel good about ourselves. We should be positive so other people can be positive, too. If you start smiling, then other people will smile, too. The smile will be contagious. That way you always can be happy about yourself, and when someone is being negative, we go over to them and yank that negative cord out and put in a new fresh, sparkly cord that makes them positive. The positive you is in there somewhere, and you need to celebrate it.

• Ansley Morlock is a fourth-grader at North Elementary School in Crystal Lake. For information on Girls on the Run, visit www.gotrnwil.org or email ldayon@gotrnwil.org.

City builds defining event around Gavers Barndance By SHAWN SHINNEMAN sshinneman@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – Officials hope a long talked about city celebration coming to fruition this summer will come to define the community the way festivals like Fiesta Days and Milk Days do surrounding communities. Set for July 18-20, Woodstock Celebrates Summer in the Park, at Emricson Park, will run parallel to the popular Gavers Community Cancer Foundation Barndance. Organizers are in the process of securing bands, vendors, carnival games and other entertainment. They’ve planned Saturday’s events to be held at Woodstock Water Works, and to finish by the time the Barndance kicks off that evening. Woodstock Mayor Brian Sager said although the city has a number of events on the Square each year, officials had been searching for a chance to give Woodstock its own community celebration for several years. “Woodstock has a strong community reputation, so it seems appropriate to have some sort of community

event that could define that sense of community,” he said. Planning the event around the Barndance offered several benefits, Sager said. The event provides an anchor from which to build and will allow the city to expand a popular event to a wider, family-oriented audience, he said. The Barndance is typically geared toward an adult crowd. Sager said the city will put an emphasis on Sunday’s events – which include a community picnic. The city has budgeted $50,000 toward the celebration. Half of that will come from revenue generated from video gaming machines. The city has a goal to fundraise the other $25,000, Sager said. Such efforts will allow Woodstock to keep the cost of the weekend low, said Cindy Smiley, the city’s executive assistant. “One of our primary goals for the event is to keep everything very inexpensive, so that families can come, have a good time and not spend a lot of money,” she said.

Cancer patients relieved they can get insurance coverage because of the new health care law may be disappointed to learn some of the nation’s best cancer hospitals are off-limits.

Health law concerns Some of nation’s best cancer centers off-limits By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Cancer patients relieved that they can get insurance coverage because of the new health care law may be disappointed to learn some the nation’s best cancer hospitals are off-limits. An Associated Press survey found examples coast to coast. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is excluded by five out of eight insurers in Washington state’s insurance exchange. MD Anderson Cancer Center says it’s in fewer than half of the plans in the Houston area. Memorial Sloan-Kettering is included by two of nine insurers in New York City and has out-of-network agreements with two more. Doctors and administrators say they’re concerned. So are some state insurance regulators. In all, only four of 19 nationally recognized comprehensive cancer centers that responded to AP’s survey said patients have access through all the insurance companies in their state exchange. Not too long ago, insurance companies would have been vying to offer access to renowned cancer centers, said Dan Mendelson, CEO of the market research firm Avalere Health. Now the focus is on costs. “This is a marked deterioration of access to the premier cancer centers for people who are signing up for these plans,” Mendelson said. Those patients may not be able get the most advanced treatment, including clinical trials of new medications. And there’s another problem: It’s not easy for consumers shopping online in the new insurance markets to tell whether top-level institutions are included in a plan. That takes additional digging by the people applying. “The challenges of this are going

to become evident ... as cancer cases start to arrive,” Norman Hubbard, executive vice president of Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, said. Advocates for cancer patients are in a quandary. Before President Barack Obama’s health care law, a cancer diagnosis could make you uninsurable. Now, insurers can’t turn away people with health problems or charge them more. Lifetime dollar limits on policies, once a financial trapdoor for cancer patients, are also banned. “Patients may have fewer choices of doctors and hospitals in some exchange plans than others ... but the rules for such plans go a long way toward remedying the most severe problems that existed for decades,” said Steve Weiss, spokesman for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network. The new obstacles are more subtle. To keep premiums low, insurers have designed narrow networks of hospitals and doctors. The government-subsidized private plans on the exchanges typically offer less choice than Medicare or employer plans. By not including a top cancer center, an insurer can cut costs. It may also shield itself from risk, delivering an implicit message to cancer survivors or people with a strong family history of the disease that they should look elsewhere. For now, the issue seems to be limited to the new insurance exchanges. But it could become a concern for Americans with job-based coverage if employers turn to narrow networks. The AP surveyed 23 institutions around the country that are part of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. Two additional institutions that joined this week were not included in the survey. Cancer network members are

leading hospitals that combine the latest clinical research and knowledge with a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. They say patients in their care have betterthan-average survival rates. The unique role of cancer centers is recognized under Medicare. Several are exempt from its hospital payment system, instituted to control costs. The AP asked the centers how many insurance companies in their state’s exchange included them as a network provider. Of the 19 that responded, four reported access through all insurers: the Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore; Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia; Duke Cancer Institute in Durham, N.C.; and VanderbiltIngram Cancer Center in Nashville, Tenn. One caveat: Some insurers did not include these cancer centers on certain low-cost plans. Two centers have special circumstances. The best known is St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. Treatment there is free as long as children have a referral. For the remaining 13, the gaps are evident. In Buffalo, N.Y., Roswell Park Cancer Institute is included by five of seven insurers in its region. But statewide, the picture is much different: Roswell Park is not included by 11 of 16 insurers. Dr. Willie Underwood, associate professor of surgical oncology at the teaching hospital, said that’s a problem. “Overall, when you look at the Affordable Care Act, it improves access to cancer care,” Underwood said. “When it comes down to the exchanges, there are some concerns that we have. That is not being critical, that is being intelligent. There are some things we should talk about ... before they start becoming a problem.”

Fed clarifies guidance on short-term rates By MARTIN CRUTSINGER The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The Federal Reserve sought Wednesday to clarify a question that investors have been trying to determine: When it might start to raise short-term interest rates from record lows. The Fed reaffirmed its plan to keep short-term rates low to help support the economy. But it no longer mentions a specific unemployment rate that might lead it eventually to raise short-term rates. The Fed says instead it will monitor “a wide range of information” on the job market, inflation and the economy before approving any rate increase. The central bank also said it will cut its monthly long-term bond purchases by another $10 billion to $55 billion because it thinks the economy is strong enough to support further improvements in the job market. The Fed announced the policies in a statement after its first meeting with Janet Yellen as chair. Yellen succeeded Ben Bernanke, who stepped down last month after eight years as Fed chairman.

One reason for dropping a threshold unemployment rate, as Yellen among others, has noted, is that the rate can overstate the job market’s health. In recent months, for example, the unemployment rate has fallen not so much because of robust hiring but because many people without a job have stopped looking for one. Once people stop looking for a job, they’re no longer counted as unemployed, and the rate can fall as a result. The Fed’s previous statement had said it planned to keep short-term rates at record lows “well past” the time unemployment fell below 6.5 percent. The rate is now 6.7 percent. Several Fed officials had recently suggested scrapping the 6.5 percent threshold and instead describing more general changes in the job market and inflation that might trigger a rate increase. A short-term rate increase would elevate borrowing costs and could hurt stock prices. The Fed’s decision to drop the 6.5 percent unemployment threshold “represents the difficulty in finding the perfect economic indicator for explaining something as complex as

the state of the labor market recovery and other considerations such as financial stability,” James Marple, senior economist at TD Economics, wrote in a research note. More than five years ago, the Fed cut its benchmark short-term rate to a record low near zero, where it’s remained since. Most analysts think the Fed will keep its target for short-term rates near zero until mid to late 2015. The Fed also updated its economic forecasts Wednesday. Fed officials expect the U.S. economy to grow at a steady if modest pace in 2014 despite weather-related setbacks this winter. The Fed is forecasting growth of 2.8 percent to 3 percent this year, a bit lower than its December projection of between 2.8 percent and 3.2 percent. The forecast suggests Fed policymakers will continue to pare their monthly bond purchases, which are intended to stimulate growth by keeping interest rates low. It is doing so despite challenges the U.S. economy and financial markets face, from a brutal winter that’s depressed growth, to fears about how Russia’s aggression toward Ukraine might slow the global economy.

SAN FRANCISCO – Sony is getting into the virtual reality business. The Japanese electronics and gaming giant unveiled a prototype virtual reality headset to be used in conjunction with its PlayStation 4 video game console during a talk at the Game Developers Conference this week. The adjustable doodad is codenamed Project Morpheus and features a head-mounted display with 1080p resolution and a 90-degree field of view. Sensors built into the headset can track a wearer’s head movement in concert with a PS4 camera. Anton Mikhailov, a senior software engineer working on Project Morpheus, said the current version of the technology must be attached to a PS4 console with a cord that’s about 15 feet long, and users’ virtual perspectives can be simultaneously broadcast on a television screen.

Current account deficit falls to 14-year low WASHINGTON – Big gains in exports and overseas investment income narrowed the U.S. current account deficit to the lowest level in 14 years in the October-December quarter. The imbalance fell to $81.1 billion in the fourth quarter, down from $96.4 billion in the July-September quarter, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. That’s the smallest gap since the third quarter of 1999. The current account is the country’s broadest measure of trade, covering not only goods and services but also investment flows. A smaller trade deficit usually means that U.S. companies are producing more to meet domestic and overseas demand.

Toyota to pay $1.2B to settle criminal probe WASHINGTON – Toyota agreed to pay $1.2 billion to settle an investigation by the U.S. government, admitting it hid information about defects that caused Toyota and Lexus vehicles to accelerate unexpectedly and resulted in injuries and deaths. Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday the penalty is the largest of its kind ever imposed on an auto company. The four-year criminal investigation focused on whether Toyota promptly reported the problems related to unintended acceleration. The company admitted to misleading consumers and regulators by assuring them it had addressed the problems – which became public in 2009 following a car crash in San Diego that killed a family of four – through a limited safety recall of certain models.

FAA says Boeing 787’s design, manufacture safe WASHINGTON – Boeing’s design and manufacture of its cutting-edge 787 jetliner is safe despite the many problems encountered since the plane’s rollout, including a fire that forced a redesign of the its batteries, according to a report issued jointly Wednesday by the Federal Aviation Administration and the aircraft maker. The yearlong review concluded “the aircraft was soundly designed, met its intended safety level, and that the manufacturer and the FAA had effective processes in place to identify and correct issues that emerged before and after certification,” the agency said in a statement.

KANE COUNTY: CLOSER LOOK AT THE SHERIFF’S RACE

Kramer, Mayes to face off for sheriff By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com Kane County Sheriff Pat Perez knows that whoever is elected sheriff in November will bring his own ideas to the office Perez has occupied for eight years. His main concern is that his successor treats the office and employees with respect, he said. Voters have nearly eight months to decide who is fit to replace Perez. Don Kramer, a retired Kane County lieutenant, earned the Republican nomination Tuesday in a neckand-neck race against current Kane County Lt. Kevin Williams. Williams said he officially conceded to Kramer on Wednesday after a thorough

check of the numbers. “It was a roller-coaster ride all night,” Williams said of watching the results come in. “Unfortunately for us, it didn’t go [our] way.” Kramer will face Democrat Willie Mayes Sr. in the general election. Mayes, a Kane County deputy sergeant, was unopposed in the primary. Perez has publicly supported Mayes. Perez, a Democrat, acknowledged the challenges of running against a Republican. “It’s an uphill battle in this county,” Perez said. But, he added, he believes voters look beyond political affiliation for an office such as sheriff, as they expect a certain level of professionalism and behavior from that

doesn’t make a difference because the office is about serving the community.

“I want to do that in a leadership capacity,” he said. Mayes said his platform is public education, public health and public safety and has outlined his immediate goals in a plan available on his campaign website. “I want to make sure the community has something to hold me responsible for,” Mayes said. “That plan I put out there tells them what I expect to do in the first 100 days.” Kramer said he would address several issues as sheriff, including bullying. “I don’t have any tolerance for people who bully others,” he said. His other focuses are domestic violence and addressing the drug problem, which

is broader than heroin use, he said. He said law enforcement needs to provide a more proactive educational message to the youth and educate parents. Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen said Wednesday he is sad Perez isn’t seeking re-election, but said is looking forward to working with whoever is elected. Kramer and Mayes said they were taking down campaign signs Wednesday but noted their efforts to make their names known to Kane County voters won’t slow down. Kramer said Tuesday night, “You don’t let down your guard. … The campaign for November is on.”

“I just do not think that decision should be made

on a financial basis. That’s why I voted for the tuition increase,” Walsh said. “We can’t add new programs and take away from old programs. That makes no sense to me.” Trustee Cynthia Kisser said she would like to hear from more departments and collect more information to

see where money for staffing should be allocated. “If you were to ask representatives from other fields what they need, we would find each of them to be compelling as well,” Kisser said. “I just think we don’t have all the information we need and if we don’t have a good picture, we don’t know.”

Ordinance to be reviewed by Planning and Development Committee, County Board • UDO Continued from page B1 Appeals, which will make necessary changes to the ordinance. Hearings are set for April 2 in the Marengo High School auditorium, April 3 in the McHenry Township conference room, April 4 in the Scot Room of McHenry County College, and April 7 in the board room of the Harvard District 50 Administration Center. All hearings start at 6 p.m., except for the MCC hearing, which starts at 1:30 p.m. The ordinance updates county government’s zoning, sign, subdivision and other ordinances and combines them into one document. It only applies to unincorporated areas and does not supersede municipalities that have enacted their own zoning ordinances. After a year of joint meetings, the zoning board of appeals and the McHenry County Board Planning and Development Committee voted earlier this month to move the ordinance forward to the public. Work began on the ordinance three years ago, following the 2010 ratification of the county’s 2030 Land Use Plan.

Four public hearings have been scheduled to receive public comment on the proposed McHenry County Unified Development Ordinance: • 6 p.m. April 2 in the auditorium of Marengo High School, 110 Franks Road. • 6 p.m. April 3 in the main conference room of McHenry Township, 3703 N. Richmond Road, Johnsburg. • 1:30 p.m. April 4 in the Scot Room at McHenry County College, 8900 Route 14, Crystal Lake. • 6 p.m. April 7 in the board room of the Harvard District 50 Administration Center, 401 N. Division St. The McHenry County Zoning Board of Appeals may continue the public hearings to future days and times to accommodate additional public comments. The board has scheduled at least two meetings to review the comments received. They start at 1:30 p.m. April 23 and April 24 at the county Administration Building, 667 Ware Road, Woodstock.

The zoning board may extend public hearings to additional days if the volume of public comment merits it. Comments received will be reviewed by the zoning board in at least two meetings, scheduled for 1:30 p.m. April 23 and 24 at the county Administration Building, 667 Ware Road, Woodstock. Extra meetings may be scheduled if needed. The zoning board will amend the final draft based on public comments, which will go to the Planning and Development Committee and then the full County Board for ratification, which likely will take place this fall. The ordinance attempts to balance property rights and preservation of natural resources, and tries to tackle some land-use issues that have stymied County Board members in the past. The county’s current development regulations in many cases have not been seriously reviewed for some time. Minor amendments aside,

the county zoning ordinance was last overhauled 14 years ago, and the subdivision ordinance dates back to 1991, not counting the 1998 addition of a conservation design section.

Three area players set for 3-point showdown By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com Marian Central’s Kyler Hardie thoroughly enjoyed his round Friday at the IHSA 3-Point Showdown at the Class 3A Hampshire Sectional. Hardie was the first of 16 shooters and fired in 11 of 15 shots, then relaxed while everyone else chased him. Eventually, Belvidere’s Maurice Jackson hit 13 and two other competitors made 11, but those rounds came from some of the later shooters,

VIEWS Rick Morrissey

VanVleet, Wichita St. shock the nation A little more than a year ago, I received an email from Joe Danforth, a Rockford policeman who wanted to tell me about his stepson, the basketball player. I had just written a column about the impending dismissal of Northwestern coach Bill Carmody, and Danforth saw it as an opportunity to describe how recruiters from Illinois schools had ignored his kid. I often get emails from people who believe their children would be on the way to greatness if only the world took notice. I told Danforth I wished I had a good answer for why only Northern Illinois had offered his stepson a scholarship. But the thought bubble above my head read, “Maybe because he’s not that good.’’ A month later, the nation had made the acquaintance of Fred VanVleet, Wichita State’s freshman point guard and Danforth’s stepson. The unheralded Shockers made it to the Final Fred VanVleet Four, where they lost by four points in the semifiMore nals to eventual champion inside Louisville. This season, they’re 34-0 and a No. 1 seed entering the NCAA Turn to page Tournament. VanVleet C5 to see the was named the Missouri updated NCAA Valley Conference’s playtournament er of the year. He’s one bracket. of 10 semifinalists for the Naismith Trophy, given to the nation’s best player, and one of six finalists for the Bob Cousy Award, which goes to the top point guard. The kid can play. Anywhere. For anyone. I figured a sheepish phone call to Danforth was finally in order. You were right, I told him, and, man, was most everybody else wrong. But how did this happen? “A lot of these colleges, they look at AAU teams,’’ he said. “If you’re not playing for a particular AAU team and you haven’t been to a particular event, then you don’t get looked at.’’ VanVleet played for Pryme Tyme, a Rockford AAU team coached by Danforth’s cousin that dominated competition in the Midwest. Danforth figures if his stepson had played for one of the top Chicago-area AAU teams, he wouldn’t have needed to travel 670 miles from home to play college basketball.

Kyle Postal

Carver Arena. Prairie Ridge’s Payton Otto and McHenry’s Kyle Postal will compete in 4A. Postal, who hit 32 3s on the Payton Otto season, hit 10 of 15 and tied for first in the Lake Zurich Sectional. Otto hit nine at the Elgin Sectional and won an overtime shoot-off with two competitors. “For the first round, I was super nervous,” said Otto, a

sophomore guard who hit 25 3s during the season. “South Elgin fans were there and saying stuff, it was pretty intense. My nerves cooled down a little and I got in the zone and knocked shots down [in overtime].” Otto hit 7 of 10 to win the shoot-off and take the fourth qualifying spot. Postal, unlike Hardie, had to wait until near the end. He was the 14th shooter at the sectional. “I kind of liked waiting more, seeing what I had to make,” Postal said. “I hit my first shot

in warm-ups and knew I could make a couple. It’s great. Who would have thought I would make it downstate?” Hardie didn’t expect to advance either. He was even a longshot to represent his own team. After Derreck Caldez, Wyatt Lindell and Ben Schnepf, Hardie was the next pick from Hurricanes coach Curtis Price. “Going into regionals I wasn’t really expecting it, I was the last one [on the team] to get picked,” Hardie said. “I got second at regional [with nine] and

that gave me some confidence. I’m excited to compete against the best in the state.” Otto has been working with his father, Wolves assistant coach Dave Otto, on shooting timed rounds from the three spots this week. Otto said he and his father planned on staying for some of Friday’s Class 3A and 4A state semifinal games. “It’s going to be pretty sweet,” Payton Otto said. “Especially as a sophomore, to go compete and watch some games.”

PREP FOOTBALL

Bill would require concussion training Bill 5431 to the state education committee Thursday morning. The bill would require all athletic directors, high school coaches and assistant coaches – regardless of sport – to complete an online concussion certification program. The program would be free. Sente, who tried unsuccessfully last year to limit tackling in practice to twice a week, views her new bill as a compromise and a “reasonable alternative.” “I still want to move forward and feel like each year, we’re protecting our kids

By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com A year ago, State Rep. Carol Sente felt like she was sitting on the opposite side of the table from the IHSA in how it handled head injuries among high school athletes. Now, while the IHSA waits to learn whether schools will approve eliminating full-padded summer football workouts, the Lincolnshire Democrat will turn her attention to educating coaches and athletic directors. Sente will introduce House

from this risk,” Sente said Wednesday. “I talk to people all the time and they are not aware of the risks.” IHSA Executive Director Marty Hickman is expected to testify during Thursday’s committee meeting. Since Sente began holding town hall meetings on concussion-related topics last year, the IHSA has worked to investigate new ways to improve player safety. Football has remained at the center of the head injury debate. But other high school sports – including volleyball, soccer and cheerleading –

Cowboys sign Melton to incentive-laden deal IRVING, Texas – The Dallas Cowboys have signed former Bears’ defensive tackle Henry Melton to an incentive-laden oneyear contract with the free agent coming off a major knee injury. The deal signed Wednesday has a $1.25 million base salary and could be worth up to $5 million. The Cowboys hold a three-year option after the 2014 season. The 27-year-old Melton missed most of last season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in September.

Rio mayor acknowledges venues behind schedule RIO DE JANEIRO – With IOC officials in Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday to monitor progress on the 2016 Olympics, the city’s Mayor Eduardo Paes acknowledged that work on a large cluster of venues is far behind schedule. Paes made his remarks as Nawal El Moutawakel, the head of the inspection committee, reminded Rio officials that the recent Sochi Winter Olympics showcased “meticulous planning.” She urged Rio organizers to meet deadlines and to explain clearly to the Brazilian public why it should back the games. International Olympic Committee officials have criticized Rio for slow progress in preparing for the games. Many Brazilians question the billions being spent on this year’s World Cup, with that sentiment spilling over to the Olympics.

Boy, 11, signs 1-day deal with pro hockey team KALAMAZOO, Mich. – A Michigan boy who said he didn’t want an 11th birthday party because he had no friends is getting a new gig. Professional hockey player. Colin and his family were surprised by players, coaches and representatives of the Kalamazoo Wings at a restaurant Tuesday. The team presented the Richland boy with a one-day contract that will allow him to join the Wings for their home game Sunday. – Staff, wire reports

Positive change, Sente said, can come out of the two efforts. “I still want to see some changes with how prac tice happens and (the IHSA) knows that,” Sente said. (Change) has come a little slower than I wanted, but I’m watching. They know that if their group doesn’t do it quick enough via the by-laws, that I’m back there watching them and needling them. “I think we’ll get there, but this is an evolution and I think you’re going to see more of it. It’s not over.”

Bears re-sign McManis to one-year contract The Bears announced Wednesday that they re-signed cornerback and gunner Sherrick McManis to a one-year deal. A key special-teams contributor, McManis played in all 15 games last season and, by the team stats, had 15 tackles on kick coverage, second to Blake Costanzo. A Northwestern grad and Peoria native, McManis first came to the Bears prior to the 2012 season via a trade with the Texans for fullback Tyler Clutts. McManis joins Craig Steltz, who was resigned on Tuesday, and Derrick Martin as the special-teams players who have been brought back this offseason. They will have competition, though, as the Bears have added Jordan Senn, M.D. Jennings and Danny McCray, who all have plenty of experience covering kicks.

have produced a large number of concussions. Sente said more people need to become involved in the discussion. She said the certification and training will not only deal with concussions, but also with the dangers of sub-concussive hits. Sente believes H.B. 5431 represents a logical next step in her goal to make high school sports safer. The results of the voting on eliminating full-padded workouts and full-contact drills during summer camps will be announced April 21.

BLACKHAWKS 4, BLUES 0

Hawks win, lose Kane Winger out with apparent leg injury By MARK LAZERUS mlazerus@suntimes.com All the good vibes, all the positive energy, all the confidence and momentum the Blackhawks generated from going toe-to-toe with the St. Louis Blues, chasing Ryan Miller and winning a physical, playoff-like showdown 4-0 on Wednesday night was tempered by the sight of Patrick Kane, on his knees, struggling to get up. Kane will miss “about” three weeks, according to Joel Quenneville, and could be out for the rest of the regular season with an apparent knee injury suffered in the second period. “It’s definitely a huge loss for us,” Quenneville said, before knocking on his wood podium. “We’ve been fortunate as far as not getting hit too hard [by injuries]. But you’re going to get tested at some point.” After Sheldon Brookbank hit Brendan Morrow along the boards about 7:30 into

Next for the Hawks Carolina at Blackhawks, 7 p.m. Friday, CSN, AM-720 the second period, Morrow fell on Kane’s left leg. Kane went down to the ice and stayed on his knees for a few seconds before slowly getting up and limping off, clutching the area around his knee. After staying on the bench for a minute or two, he headed back to the dressing room and didn’t return. Kane leads the Hawks with 69 points, with 29 goals and 40 assists. Quenneville said the Hawks will have to replace him by committee, as no one player could do everything Kane does on the power play and 5-on-5. Quenneville said he’ll lean even heavier on his four-line rotation to spread Kane’s minutes around. Quenneville – who became

the third coach to reach 700 regular-season victories — said he didn’t know if Kane’s injury could affect the status of prospect Teuvo Teravainen, who’s expected to come to Chicago later this week. If the Hawks expect Kane to be out longer than three weeks, they can put him on long-term injured reserve, which would free up the salary cap space for Teravainen. But all that is in limbo at the moment. “We’ll have to find a way as a team to make up for that,” said Ben Smith, who had been centering Kane’s line. “It’s hard to pick up the slack for a guy like Patrick Kane. But as a team, guys will have to step up and play some bigger minutes. And we’re definitely capable of that. But it probably has to be a group effort.” The injury cast a shadow on an otherwise tremendous evening for the Hawks, who won the game they had to win in order to keep alive their hopes of winning the Central Division title, moving into sole possession of second place.

PHILADELPHIA – Ten games in 913 days. Think about that. Derrick Rose will have had only 10 games against NBA-caliber talent in 2½ years when he steps back on the court for the 2014-15 season. That’s why he needs USA Basketball more than USA Basketball needs him. “[Rose is] doing fine, he’s doing a little bit more, but he’s nowhere near practicing,’’ Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Wednesday. “At this point, maybe he’ll get a couple of practices at the end [of the season], but we Derrick Rose just want him to lock into the rehab and make sure he’s 100 percent healthy.’’ For the start of the season? No, to get Rose up and running for what could be the most important offseason of his career. As part of USA Basketball’s 28-player pool, Rose would be competing against the NBA’s best this summer. USA Basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski and chairman Jerry Colangelo will be choosing 12-man rosters for the World Cup in Spain in late August and September and the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. Rose and Thibodeau want to make sure he’s healthy and able to participate in the ultimate summer-school session. The last time Rose played for USA Basketball, he walked out with a new-found swagger, which led to an eventual regular-season MVP trophy for the 2010-11 season. More important, with Rose publicly dismissing pickup basketball in the offseason, this would serve as the perfect pickup game to show that his knee woes are a distant memory. “Yeah, there’s a plan for him, and it’s going to be stepby-step, so when he masters one phase and we feel it’s good enough, he’ll move on to the next,’’ Thibodeau said. “We’ll see where he is in the summer.’’ Krzyzewski has said several times that Rose would be welcomed with open arms.

Next for the Bulls Bulls at Indiana, 6 p.m. Friday, WGN, AM-1000

Bulls hand 76ers 22nd consecutive loss PHILADELPHIA – Down and out or down to the wire, the 76ers are freefalling toward NBA history. D.J Augustin scored 20 points and Taj Gibson had 19 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Bulls to a 102-94 win over Philadelphia on Wednesday, handing the 76ers their 22nd straight loss. The Sixers are four losses shy of matching the NBA record for the longest single-season losing streak. The Cleveland Cavaliers set the record of 26 consecutive losses in the 2010-11 season. The Vancouver Grizzlies (1995-96), Denver Nuggets (1997-98) and Charlotte Bobcats (2011-12) each lost 23 straight. – The Associated Press “Oh, absolutely,’’ Thibodeau said when asked if he wants to see Rose play this summer, “if he’s healthy and he’s cleared. I thought it was a great experience for him before. I know he’d like to do it. I know how USA Basketball feels about him. So if he’s cleared to do it, I’d love to see him do it.’’ It doesn’t hurt that Thibodeau is an assistant on the team and can keep an eye on Rose on a daily basis. “The thing I have a lot of respect for – and [Colangelo] and [Krzyzewski] have both said this – is they’re never going to put a player in harm’s way,’’ Thibodeau said. “So if a team doesn’t feel it’s in the best interest of the player, they’re not going to put pressure on the player to play.’’ But if Rose plays, is it best for the Bulls? That’s the question that a growing number of Rose critics will be asking. But it’s a question that carries little weight in the big picture. Rose needs court time. Period. With his place in the NBA hierarchy questionable because of two iffy knees, Rose could use the competition to see where he stands.

Cary-Grove’s Hurley breaks personal best in shot put • TRACK Continued from page C1 Junior Ricky Hurley of Cary-Grove set a personal best in the shot put by throwing a 57½, which earned him the event title. In comparison, Hurley finished seventh in Class 3A at state last year with a throw of 55-03.25. Hurley wants to reach the 60-foot mark by the end of this season. “I’ve been stuck at 55 feet since the beginning of sophomore year, but I took a different approach today and it worked out,” Hurley said. “My goal for the year is to get to 60 feet by not trying to be the best every time and slowing down by not worrying about little things.” Central seniors Nick Amato and Ryan Pitner combined to account for 38 of Central’s 82

NCAA DIVISION I TOURNAMENT

Mobile devices add allure at work

THURSDAY’S TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE

By RYAN NAKASHIMA The Associated Press LOS ANGELES – Every year, the NCAA college basketball tournament gives employees a reason to goof off at their desks and root for their alma maters. But there’s a growing source of potential headaches for bosses. Media companies like hosts CBS Corp. and Time Warner Inc.’s Turner are doing all they can to promote so-called TV Everywhere services, which add value to cable and satellite TV packages by allowing subscribers to watch live TV on smartphones and tablets while on the go – and on the job. Although people have long been able to stream games live over the Internet, employers have always had the option to block content to keep productivity high. That’s harder to do when workers are bringing their own devices and using their cellphone data plans to engage in March Madness. Turner Broadcasting senior vice president Jeremy Legg says the tournament, which kicks off in earnest on Thursday, is “one of the most significant opportunities we have to promote TV Everywhere” – and the numbers show it’s working. Last year, streamed video viewing of the first two weeks of the tournament more than tripled from the previous year to 14 million hours. The number of viewers using the NCAA March Madness Live mobile app more than doubled to 3.4 million. Jumping on the bandwagon, Dish Network Corp. started a new ad campaign Tuesday that touts how well its Hopper set-top box can help customers sneak in some game-watching at work. One of Dish’s TV spots features the company’s stuffed kangaroo mascot, who is streaming NCAA basketball to a tablet while at the office.

Rice scores 28, Illinois rallies past BU in NIT

Badgers ready for American’s offense By GENARO C. ARMAS The Associated Press MILWAUKEE – The most important player for the Wisconsin Badgers headed into their NCAA tournament opener might be a backup forward who rarely gets meaningful minutes. But this week Zach Bohannon is the man who has experience with the offensive plan of the second-seeded Badgers’ first opponent – No. 15 seed American, with its Princeton-style offense. Efficient Wisconsin against the methodical Eagles. Get ready for a test of basketball wills Thursday. “As long as we don’t get beat backdoor, that’s the biggest thing. You can watch any Princeton team, the whole system is predicated on the backdoor cut and 3-point shots,” said Bohannon, a transfer who previously played that offense at Air Force. The talent difference between American and the Badgers (26-7) might be as wide as Lake Michigan.

Start up front with jump-shooting big man Frank Kaminsky (13.6 points) and athletic forward Sam Dekker (12.7 points). Both present a challenge for American’s 6-foot-10 center Tony Wroblicky, the Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year. What is a little different this year is that all five Badgers on the floor can score, so add firepower and balance to that trademark Wisconsin efficiency. “They’re scoring a ton of points this year, they’re getting out in transition,” American coach Mike Brennan said Wednesday. “It’s more than just the offense that everyone talks about, the swing offense.” Maybe their offense will be the equalizer. Brennan played for his mentor, Pete Carril at Princeton in the early 1990s and coached for seven years at Princeton. Brennan was also an assistant at Georgetown to another Carril protege, John Thompson III, before taking the American job last year.

Teams missed out on VanVleet • MORRISSEY Continued from page C1 “I think the recruiters were like, ‘Well, he’s from Rockford. There are better kids than him in Chicago,’ ” Danforth said. “I think that’s the way he got looked at. DePaul never recruited him. Northwestern, Illinois, UIC, Loyola – nobody in Illinois recruited him, except for NIU.’’ It wasn’t from a lack of effort on Danforth’s part. He sent tapes to coaches. He made phone calls that went unreturned. Coaches would see the stepfather at tournaments, tell him how much they liked the stepson’s game and then … nothing. Teams miss on players. It happens. But this many, almost all at once? Some of the silence had to do with the fact that VanVleet committed to Wichita State the summer before his senior year of high school. But that doesn’t explain much. He was an exceptional player his junior year too. Everyone had a shot at him. “We just thought for sure that [the University of] Illinois would be salivating over him,’’ Danforth said. Former Illinois assistant Jerrance Howard did like VanVleet, enough to get then-Illini coach Bruce Weber to make a trip to Rockford’s Auburn High School to watch VanVleet during an open gym. But the girls team had the court that day. “He stayed for about 20, 30 minutes, talked to Fred and left,’’ said Danforth, Auburn’s sophomore coach. “Never heard from him again.’’ Academic performance was not an issue. VanVleet got a 27 on the ACT and graduated with a 3.5 grade-point average, according to his stepfather. “I just knew for sure that,

Wichita State’s Fred VanVleet (23) drives past Indiana State’s Jake Kitchell in the championship game of the Missouri Valley Conference tournament March 9 in St. Louis. OK, Northwestern, just on grades alone, they’d probably be like, ‘We probably need to take a chance on this kid. He’s got good grades and he can play,’ ” Danforth said. “Not even a phone call.’’ Wichita State assistant Dana Ford, who is now the associate head coach at Illinois State, was at a game in which VanVleet was playing. He came back to see him. And came back again. Seeing was believing. Here’s the oddest part – and the most incriminating if you’re a fan of hoops in Illinois: Toward the end of his high school career, VanVleet started hearing from more out-of-state schools. Fairfield, Providence, Colorado State, La Salle, Boston College and St. John’s all called. Was he available, coaches wanted to know. How solid was that commitment to Wichita State? Rock solid, they were told. All along, the silence from in-state schools was deafening.

While Illinois schools are busy kicking themselves Thursday, they might want to do a little soul searching. Players are everywhere, some even close by. You just have to look. And return those phone calls. “At the time, Illinois was my favorite team,’’ Danforth said. “I grew up watching Illinois. I mean, man, Kenny Battle and Lowell Hamilton and Kendall Gill. Oh, my God, I loved Illinois. “… I thought if Fred could go there, no matter what he does, my son went to Illinois. That’s what we thought was going to happen. It just blew my mind [it didn’t]. “I’m still kind of a fan, but of course I’m a Wichita fan now.’’ Regrets? “Oh, my God, no,’’ Danforth said.

He added two free throws and a driving layup to give Illinois a 64-61 lead. Dom Morris missed a contested layup on an inbounds play with 11 seconds left that would have tied it for BU, the regular-season champion in the Patriot League.

Kranz makes it to 25 years Twenty-five years is a long time. It’s even longer than it used to be. What I mean is, how many people stay married for a quarter century anymore? How many people do their job for the same employer long enough to celebrate a silver anniversary anymore? Yes, 25 years is a long, long time. This makes the fact that Dave Kranz from Dave’s Bait, Tackle and Taxidermy is celebrating his 25th year in business all the more special.

Mom seeks guidance for son Urinary tract problems in questioning legal marijuana men can have various causes Dear Abby: Due to various anti-drug lectures he was exposed to at school, my 13-year-old son believes marijuana is not only illegal, but also is very bad for you. He said it is poison. My state has recently legalized marijuana and I am at a loss about how to explain to him pot is no longer “that bad,” as people partake of it in a responsible manner going forward. Any suggestions? – Colorado Mom Dear Mom: Marijuana isn’t poison, unless it was sprayed with a poisonous chemical before being harvested. The marijuana being sold to adults in the states where it is now legal has been carefully cultivated and harvested. Its use is not encouraged among teenagers, however, because research has shown it can impair brain development among young people. Stress to your son that like alcohol, marijuana can slow reaction time and impair judgment and memory, which is why it’s illegal for minors to use it. Whether it will become legal across the nation is still an open question. If it’s abused the way alcohol sometimes is, smoking weed also may be harmful

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips because, like any smoke, it poses a risk to the lungs. Dear Abby: I moved into my boyfriend’s home several months ago. In the beginning, he was very attentive and we had fun together. But over the last couple of months, he has become abusive and unbearable to live with. He orders me around and double-checks to make sure I’m doing things “his way.” I feel as though there isn’t room to breathe and no way out. I have lost weight, and I’m having trouble sleeping now. I have no family or friends who can help me out. I want to end this misery. But how? – Miserable In

Florida Dear Miserable: Pick up the phone and call the National Domestic Violence Hotline (800-799-7233). Although your boyfriend’s controlling behavior hasn’t yet escalated to physical abuse, it very well could. The counselors at the hotline can help you formulate a plan so you can get away safely. Please don’t wait to

make the call, because the symptoms you’re having are ones of extreme stress. Dear Abby: We live in a small town. My husband is friendly and outgoing and seems to know everyone. We can’t go anywhere without running into someone he knows. Meals out that should be quiet affairs turn into social situations I do not want to be part of. I have wracked my brain as to a polite response to people when they say, “Join us!” I don’t want to join them. How do we politely decline their friendly offer? – “Not Tonight” In North

Carolina Dear “Not Tonight”: A polite way to refuse would be to say, “We’d love to do that another time, but it has been a long day and we just want to sit and be quiet.” It wouldn’t be considered rude unless you say it often. If these people are friends, they should understand because not everyone is up for company all the time. It also is understandable if a couple has things they need to discuss privately. • Write Dear Abby at

www.dearabby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Dear Dr. K: I am a 52-yearold man. When I finish urinating, I drip much more then I used to. And I have a stinging sensation in my urethra. What could cause this? Dear Reader: What you’re experiencing is a very common complaint. As men age, several things happen. One is some enlargement of the prostate gland. This is called benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH. Your doctor can perform a digital rectal exam to assess the size and texture of your prostate gland. As the prostate gland increases in size, the bladder (which stores urine) has to exert more pressure to get rid of the last drops of urine. When that happens, some of that pressure gets placed on the part of the bladder called the bladder neck. This muscular portion of the bladder can contract, leading to the stinging sensation you mention. If the stinging sensation is located at the very tip of your penis, bladder neck pressure is the most likely cause. If this is the case, your doctor can prescribe medication to relax smooth muscle in the bladder neck. If your prostate is enlarged, your doctor also can

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff suggest lifestyle changes that may help to control your symptoms. For example, avoid drinking caffeinated and alcoholic beverages in the evening. Both can affect the muscle tone of the bladder and stimulate the kidneys to produce urine. If necessary, medications and surgical options also are available. Stinging sensations also can result from an infection in the bladder (a urinary tract infection, or UTI) or in the prostate gland (prostatitis). Antibiotics can treat both types of infection. Other symptoms are common when you have a bladder infection. These include suddenly having to urinate a lot more often than usual. They also include feeling like you can’t hold it when the urge comes on. When a bladder infection spreads to the kidneys, it can cause pain in the back. An infection of the prostate is more likely if you also have an aching sensation in your groin. Fevers, shaking chills, nausea or vomiting also are signs of an infection.

If you have these symptoms, you should contact your doctor promptly. Another possibility is a sexually transmitted disease (STD). An STD usually produces a milky or whitish penile discharge in addition to the symptoms you mentioned. Your doctor can take a urine sample or a sample of the discharge to test for a UTI, prostatitis or an STD. Prolonged dripping also may be a symptom of an overactive bladder. This is a common condition in older men. An overactive bladder may cause occasional, uncontrollable loss of urine. A person may frequently urinate small amounts yet still feel a great urge to urinate. Several exercises can help with an overactive bladder. Effective medicines also are available. Quite often, doctors don’t find a specific reason for the types of symptoms you have. And initial treatment might not help. This can be frustrating, but keep working with your doctor. It’s likely you will get some relief. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at www.askdoctork.com or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

COLDPLAY’S MARTIN TO HELP ON ‘THE VOICE’

THINGS

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

Thursday, March 20, 2014 • Section C • Page 8

NEW YORK – Coldplay singer Chris Martin is bringing his expertise to NBC’s “The Voice.” The network said Martin will participate in the “battles” round that begins March 31, advising singers on vocal technique and stage presence. The singers are vying for the attention of their team coaches, who must decide who gets to move on in the show. “The Voice” has established itself this season as the most popular of the music shows, eclipsing the long-running champ “American Idol” on Fox. The guest role is good promotion for Martin and Coldplay, which is releasing a new album in May.

BUZZWORTHY

National Geographic series to chronicle the 1990s NEW YORK – Nostalgia gets closer and closer to real time. The National Geographic Network said it will air a miniseries this summer on the 1990s. The project premieres this July on the cable network and follows on the heels of National Geographic’s success chronicling the 1980s last spring. The network said some 120 people who made some mark on the 1990s have been interviewed, including Matthew Perry of “Friends,” actress Susan Sarandon, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and rock singer Courtney Love. It will examine the Bill Clinton presidency, the rise of Osama bin Laden, reality TV and popular music from the decade.

New ‘Star Wars’ set 30 years after ‘Jedi’

Oprah chai tea to be sold at Starbucks stores SEATTLE – Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz brought Oprah Winfrey on stage Wednesday at the shareholders meeting in Seattle to announce a drink named after the media mogul. Beginning April 29, customers will be able to walk into Starbucks and Teavana stores across the United States and Canada and order Teavana Oprah Chai Tea. Starbucks will make a donation to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation for each product sold. Schultz also told shareholders the coffee company is still in the early stages of growth and has a long-term target of doubling its market cap to $100 billion. Television writer and producer Norman Lear kicked off the meeting by introducing the Playing For Change Band, whose third album will be available in Starbucks stores in June.

LOS ANGELES – The new “Star Wars” has an official timeline and one confirmed returning character: robot R2-D2. Director J.J. Abrams will begin shooting in May on “Star Wars: Episode VII,” which is set three decades after 1983’s “Return of the Jedi,” Disney CEO Bob Iger said Tuesday. Speaking at the company’s annual shareholder’s meeting in Portland, Ore., Iger said the movie would feature “some very familiar faces along with a trio of new, young leads.” Abrams has a penchant for secrecy, and Iger said R2-D2 was the only “official cast member” he would announce. “Episode VII” is set for release in December 2015.

Charlie Brown, Snoopy back in 3-D ‘Peanuts’ movie LOS ANGELES – Charlie Brown and Snoopy are going 3-D. 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios said “Peanuts” will hit theaters Nov. 6, 2015. It’s the first full-length computer-ani-

mated film based on the Charles Schulz comic strip that ran from 1950 to 2000. Charlie Brown and Snoopy have updated looks in a trailer unveiled Tuesday. The teaser shows the beloved pair up to their old tricks, as Snoopy tries to steal the spotlight and Charlie Brown mutters his famous line “Good grief.” The trailer doesn’t reveal whether the rest of the Peanuts crew will also be in the film.

Fonda and Tomlin to reunite for a Netflix sitcom NEW YORK – Netflix said it’s reuniting Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin for a new comedy series. The online TV network will launch “Grace and Frankie” starring Fonda and Tomlin as longtime foes who come together when their husbands desert them after falling in love. The single-camera comedy will film its first season of 13 halfhour episodes and will premiere on Netflix next year. The two actresses co-starred a quarter-century ago in the comedy hit “Nine to Five.” Marta Kauffman is a writer and creator of “Grace and Frankie.” She is a creator of the sitcom classic “Friends.”

FX network orders comedy starring Billy Crystal NEW YORK – Billy Crystal has agreed to star in a new TV series in which he’s paired with Josh Gad in a story about two comics in a generational clash. The series is called “The Comedians.” It’s set to air on the FX network next year. FX said Wednesday it has ordered 13 episodes. “The Comedians” is based on a format popular in Sweden and will look at a late-night television show on which egos and generations collide.

Reston Ponds in revival mode with Shodeen Reston Ponds has had a checkered past, and Shodeen wants to lend stability to the subdivision, which opened in 2004 under the ownership of Wiseman-Hughes, based in Wheaton. Sales were active until 2008 and a market downturn that became a recession. Sales virtually ended. In 2010, Shodeen entered the scene. “An existing subdivision probably was about half built out and we picked up the other half, or about 190 to 200 house sites, in 2010,” Shodeen said. An experienced developer, Shodeen is responsible for the Mill Creek subdivision in Geneva, which opened in 1994.

Jerry Kuyper SYCAMORE - With renewed buyer interest in Reston Ponds, the developer offers six new floor plans, with two of them built and open for public inspection. The Dodson ranch was completed in November, and the Augusta is almost ready for immediate occupancy. Another model will be built this year. Craig Shodeen, president of Shodeen Homes, based in Geneva, also installed a new construction and sales team.

Earlier this year, Shodeen reported that 94 percent of the original 2,356 single-family houses planned for Mill Creek had been sold. Shodeen expects similar results at Reston Ponds. He said he depends on quality of construction and affordable pricing to get those results, and a lot of that is by word of mouth. Shodeen is not afraid to build models, hoping buyers will snap them up. “I don’t know of any other area builder that provides such a healthy supply of move-in ready homes throughout the year,” Shodeen’s sales director Photo provided Nathan Amidon said. A single-family ranch design is used as a sales model at the Reston Ponds subdivision near down-

• RESTON Continued from page E1 “Many builders consider it too risky to construct a home that may not be purchased for awhile. But our early delivery homes almost always get claimed fast, so we keep building more,” Amidon said. The company regularly stocks and replenishes a wide variety of inventory homes and offers a diverse option of move-in dates, from immediate delivery to within six months. “This provides many shoppers with greater scheduling flexibility, especially if they need time to sell an existing home,”Amidon added. The approach used at Mill Creek is in evidence at Reston Ponds. The completed Dodson ranch and almost-completed Augusta are on the market. A two-story Hawthorne model should be built in the coming months. ‘“We will build it for sure this year,” Amidon said. It will be for sale, too. The only model not on the market is a decorated and furnished Geneva. “We built that when we bought and started this project in 2010,” Amidon said. “It is a 2,000-square-foot ranch that we use as our sales model, so it will not be for sale at this time. “The introduction of these brand new home designs is a direct result of buyer feedback we have received and are spot-on for the market,” Amidon continued. “Our new plans blend into the existing community nicely, are packed with value and standard inclusions that will pique a buyer’s interest, and have been the key to our success at Reston Ponds. We are very excited to offer these designs.” Buyers can select from two ranch and four two-story single-family styles that offer three to four bedrooms, two to two-and-a-half baths, and a two- to three-car garage. Homes are priced from $214,890 to $279,360 and range in size from 1,600 to 2,666 square feet. The quarter-acre lots are included in the sales price. Inclusions at Reston Ponds are granite countertops, 42-inch kitchen cabinetry, and ceramic tile in kitchen, entry and bathrooms as well as 9-foot ceilings on the first floor. Standard features include a full basement, vaulted ceilings, a 92-percent-efficient furnace, air conditioning, white colonist doors and trim, microwave, range, dishwasher and garbage disposal unit in the kitchen and sodded sites with shrubs. Two-story designs have formal living and dining rooms. Several sites offer pond views. Reston Ponds owners pay no Special Service Area tax. In some new housing developments, the SSA tax is set up for improvements made by the developer and

A pond can be seen from the rear deck of a ranch model in Sycamore’s Reston Ponds subdivision. collected by local governments. The Dodson model at 228 Wilkins Road is an example of Shodeen strategy to build and hope for a buyer. It is a ranch ready for immediate move-in with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, full basement, two-car garage and 1,600 square feet of living space. Priced at $214,890, the Dodson showcases an open floor plan with visibility between the island/breakfast bar kitchen and the dining room and great room. The two-story Augusta is a three-bedroom, two-anda-half bath house with an attached two-car garage. The two-story Hawthorne model will have three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and 1,835 square feet of living space when built before the end of 2014. “Buyers love the fact that we are a new home community building in an established area with attractive landscape features. Reston Ponds features six manicured ponds, a gazebo, walking paths and acres of land donated for use as future park space,” Amidon said. “Reston Ponds is tucked away on a 193-acre site that is removed from busy surroundings yet close to shops, restaurants, parks and churches.” Public schools are in the Sycamore Community School District 427 and are nearby. “In fact, your kids can walk right next door to Southeast Elementary, to which we’ve built a nice walking path,” Amidon said. “For over 50 years, Shodeen Homes has been building in the area and is known for their excellent reputation and quality homes,” Amidon said. “We are proud to continue this tradition at Reston Ponds.” To reach the Reston Ponds sales office model, take Interstate 88 west and exit Peace Road, heading north. Turn right onto Bethany Road and go east, turn left on Somonauk Street and head north, turn right onto Becker Place and continue east to 345 E. Becker Place.

We don’t want to let others in who might tarnish the reputation for quality that we are emphasizing,” Amidon said.

Ernie Harwell, who called the play-by-play for the Detroit Tigers for 42 years, said, “Everybody in the minor leagues -- if you’re a player, an announcer, whatever -- wants to be in the big leagues.” At the bridge table, when we see a long minor suit, we probably wish it were a major suit. The game revolves around majors and no-trump, not minors. However, when we have a long minor, we must make the best pitch we can. In yesterday’s deal, opener started with one no-trump and responder had a weak hand with a long major. He bailed out of no-trump into his long suit via a transfer bid. Today, the responder has a long minor. What should he do? I believe everyone should use transfers into the majors, but only take up transfers into the minors with regular partners. (If you would like to learn about these transfers, go to my web site: phillipalderbridge.com.) If you do not use minorsuit transfers, the best way to sign off in a minor is by immediately jumping to three

of your long suit, which must contain at least six cards -- as in today’s deal. If you use minor-suit transfers, follow your partnership methods. And note that one notrump ought to fail. How should South plan the play in three diamonds after West leads the heart jack? Declarer starts with two losers in the majors and at least one trump loser. His basic plan should be to lead trumps toward his hand, up to his honors, and to take club inesses when in his hand. Here, he will lose one spade, one heart and two diamonds to make his contract.

The two mediums will come together for a night of artistry and harmony March 22 in The Listening Room at Lakeside Legacy Arts Park, 401 Country Club Road, Crystal Lake. The night will feature musical performances by The Elevate Project, along with poetry readings from “Whispers of Love,” a debut book by Diana Floress. Floress of Crystal Lake is a member of The Elevate Project, an eight-piece band made up of musicians from a variety of musical backgrounds, as well as creative artists from other realms who incorporate their talents with the music from the band members. The team of creative artists encompasses the full spectrum of the project, meant to take the audience to a higher level.

The Elevate Project rehearses recently in Woodstock for the band’s upcoming event, “Whispers of Love.” The performance, including poetry readings, will take place March 22 at The Listening Room at Lakeside Legacy Arts Park in Crystal Lake.

The band plays a wide assortment of music from soul to funk to rock and then some. Songs include classic covers by artists such as Prince and Stevie Wonder, as well as original music written by members of the group. The Elevate Project was founded by former worship leader, Jayson Hemphill, who wanted to focus his energy on writing and performing music, as well as provide a platform for artists from genres to showcase their talents. “The band is really a catalyst for creativity,” Hemphill said. “We want to inspire people to express whatever their unique gifts are. The core is the music, but the project is really for all artists to create one unique experience for the audience.” Hemphill, of Woodstock, formed the band in 2012. He plays the keyboard and sings lead vocals. “It’s my baby really,” Hemphill said. “We’re not just a cover band, and we don’t just plays music,” he said. “We cultivate an experience for the audience, and they go on a journey with us through high and low points.” Hemphill said the band’s music is universally applicable and gives its own introspective to life. Since its formation, the band has booked

four major performances a year including shows at the Raue Center and the Starline Factory in Harvard. Hemphill is excited about the band’s upcoming performance at The Listening Room. “The intimacy of The Listening Room really lends itself to a performance like this. It’s a beautiful space, acoustically sound, welcoming and has a decent-sized stage,” he said. The room really focuses on the sound quality and makes it all about the music, Hemphill said. The room, equipped with professional lighting, sound and production equipment, holds an audience of 100, and Hemphill is eager to fill all seats. “The focus of that evening will be Diana. We want to celebrate her, and the music and her written work complement each other to make for a great show,” he said. According to a provided description of the book, “Diana is passionate about writing poetry that points the reader to God. ‘Whispers of Love’ is a book that tells her journey of discovery about her relationship with God.” The profits from the night’s ticket sales will benefit the Alexander Leigh Center for Autism in Crystal Lake.

By JAMI KUNZER jkunzer@shawmedia.com Professional performers have become teachers at the Raue Center for the Arts, where a summer workshop has expanded into a yearlong theater program. The latest offering,” Triple Threat: Auditioning for Musical Theatre Workshop” aims to prepare teens for college programs and auditions. “If you’re as good of a singer as you are a dancer and actor, you’re a triple threat,” said Amanda Flahive, the program manager and primary instructor, who took over the workshops in 2013. They’re hosted through Sage Studio, which began in 2007 as a summer theater program. Flahive, a member of the Raue’s in-house professional theater company Williams Street Repertory, has appeared in numerous shows, such as “The Fantasticks,”

“It’s a Wonder Life: The Radio Play,” “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” and “The Rocky Horror Show.” She’ll star in May as Corie Bratter in William Street Repertory’s “Barefoot in the Park” at the Raue Center. As Flahive began teaching musical theater, interest in the program has expanded. “We’ve grown from one class to seven this year,” she said. “It’s been a crazy large expansion, but we’re very excited.” Along with Flahive, instructors include professionals from all areas of the industry, including lifetime members of the Actor’s Studio and veterans of Broadway and Off-Broadway. The latest class focuses on “the art of the good audition,” she said. “In the theater business, that’s the only way you get a job is by nailing that audition,” she said. Flahive caps each class at 16 students.

At the end of the “Triple Threat” class, those involved take part in a mock audition with professional directors. “While it’s a mock audition, you never know what connection it could possibly lead to,” she said. “That director might look at you and say, ‘You know what, I have a show coming up that I think

you’d be good in.’” Some of those who participated in last year’s class ended up in the cast of “It’s a Wonderful Life” last year. “I think Williams Street Repertory has really shown the community that professional theater is alive and well,” Flahive said. Those interested in taking part in-

the “Triple Threat” class are asked to submit a videotaped audition or perform a live audition. Applications can be downloaded at rauecenter.org.

Beidgette Teeter gets her picture taken in the Batmobile during last year’s “Superhero” event.

SUPERHEROES UNITE AT VOLO AUTO MUSEUM VOLO — Celebrity sightings are nothing new at the Volo Auto Museum, but this spring break is sure to tip the scales. Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Incredible Hulk, Spiderman and more – all will meander the museum March 30. From March 22 through March 30, children ages 12 and younger who arrive in costume will be admitted free, said Brian Grams, director of the museum at 27582 Volo Village Road, Volo. “It’s a super hero spring break,” Grams said. “Everyone had such a great time last summer with the Super Hero Night we co-sponsored at the McHenry Outdoor that we thought this would be a blast. And it ties in well because we have some amazing super hero TV and movie vehicles, like the Black Beauty from ‘Green Hornet,’ the motorcycle from ‘Ghost Riders,’ and, of course, the Batmobile.” The all-indoors Volo Auto Museum features hundreds of Hollywood, classic and muscle cars, as well as rare

Disney and Looney Tunes statuary and memorabilia, antique arcades and old-fashioned kiddy rides. “We have an Incredible Hulk and a Batman kiddy ride, and these will be running free throughout spring break,” Grams said. “Also, on the 30th, visitors will be able to meet some real live super heroes.” Similar to last year, members of We Are Cosplay will portray Iron Man, Captain America and more. The costumes are elaborately detailed, Grams said. Last but not least, a free opportunity to have a picture taken in the Batmobile from the ’60s television series will be offered the weekends of March 22-23 and 29-30. “The whole family will be able to enjoy it,” Grams said. “We look forward to it.” The Volo Auto Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

CD cover for Kylie Minogue’s “Kiss Me Once.”

MINOGUE’S ALBUM GOES WAY PAST FIRST BASE By CRISTINA JALERU Associated Press The latest offering from pop goddess Kylie Minogue, “Kiss Me Once,” is like a narcotic disco dream, slightly confused about the time-space continuum, yet very delightful. With her 12th studio album – her first after signing with Jay Z’s Roc Nation management – Minogue attempts to keep her crown in the dance kingdom – and succeeds – when she’s not trying too hard to upgrade to today’s trends. Australian wunderkind Sia, who has written for Rihanna, Beyonce and Britney Spears, co-executive produced this tiny gem of dance floor anthems and sex-crazed tunes. When three out of 11 tracks have the word “sex” in their titles, you know what the album is going for – the antechamber to the bedroom of music. Minogue excels on songs that are pure bubblegum fun.

The Pharrell-penned spring-in-one’s-step “I Was Gonna Cancel,” the vaguely familiar “Sexy Love,” the casually dance-inducing “Feels So Good” and the beguilingly ‘80s throwback title track bring back a rash of dance memories from Minogue’s golden days circa 2001 with the addictive hits “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” and “Love at First Sight.” Sia’s writing contribution to the fun is the aggressively erotic “Sexercize,” a bassheavy baller of a song that slithers all over your ears and proves that Minogue can deftly rap. Another laidback come-on is the enjoyable “Les Sex.” The bug in this sextra intoxicating party cocktail is the misguided attempt at a ballad: an irritating duet with Enrique Iglesias’ computerflavored vocals on “Beautiful.” Just stick to what you do best, kids, separately. You can’t force love on a player of an album.

‘MUPPETS MOST WANTED’: A TOUR DE FARCE By ANN HORNDAY The Washington Post When “The Muppets” came out in 2011, it was the first Muppet movie to hit theaters in more than a decade; the collective exhale was palpable – and profitable – as millions of relieved fans flocked to see their beloved yarn-andwire characters mix it up with Jason Segel and Amy Adams in what amounted to Muppets 2.0. The film was such an unexpected smash that it earned Jim Henson’s creations their very first Oscar (well, not counting the Grouch) for the brilliant song “Man or Muppet.” “Muppets Most Wanted” can’t rebottle that particular brand of lightning, but it does a terrific job trying, and once again “Man or Muppet” songwriter Bret McKenzie – one half of the comic musical comedy duo Flight of the Conchords – saves the day with a passel of catchy and amusing ditties that keep the movie humming along even when the plot threatens to sag. Written and directed by “Muppets” filmmaker James Bobin, with an assist from co-screenwriter Nicholas Stoller, the story picks up where “The Muppets” ended, with the troupe back together and contemplating their professional future. Enter would-be road manager Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais), who pronounces his last name “Badgee” and lavishes the Muppets with promises of sold-out continental venues and stardom while a suspicious Kermit reluctantly goes along. It turns out that the European tour Badguy has arranged dovetails diabolically with a plan he’s hatched with an

“Muppets Most Wanted” STARRING: Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, Tina Fey PLOT: While on a grand world tour, The Muppets ind themselves wrapped into an European jewel-heist caper headed by a Kermit the Frog look-alike and his dastardly sidekick. RATED: PG for some mild action RUNNING TIME: 1 hour, 52 minutes evil green Russian frog named Constantine, who could be Kermit’s double save for a menacing brown mole on his lip. Mistaken identities and high jinks – on stage and off – ensue. The Muppets take Berlin; Badguy and Constantine smash-and-grab their way from Madrid to Dublin to London; and Kermit languishes in a Siberian prison camp, befriending convicts played by Ray Liotta and Danny Trejo and winning the heart of a soulful guard named Nadya (Tina Fey). If those marquee names get your attention, just wait: “Muppets Most Wanted” is stuffed to its felted gills with notable supporting and cameo performances, including a very funny turn by “Modern Family’s” Ty Burrell as a Clouseauvian Interpol agent. The one discordant note comes by way of the gulag gags: With Russian President Vladimir Putin enthusiastically reviving that country’s most oppressive totalitarian past, making light of what now seems all too real may strike adult viewers as, if not tasteless, then at least unfortunately timed. (The backfire also serves as a cautionary reminder to studio executives eager to exploit the newly all-powerful

international market.) Even with those misgivings, no one old enough to remember “A Chorus Line” will be immune to a set piece revolving around a prison theater revue; like most of “Muppets Most Wanted,” the wittiest jokes and cameo appearances are designed to soar far over the heads of young filmgoers and into the atavistic pop consciousness of their adult companions. As for the youngsters, it’s up to individual parents to decide whether the sight of Kermit being wheeled into jail trussed up like Hannibal Lecter is a tad too dark for Junior’s delicate sensibilities, or whether their littlest charges will truly appreciate an opening production number that invokes Busby Berkeley and Ingmar Bergman in addition to the Muppets’ own cherished oeuvre. The title of that song, by the way, is “We’re Doing a Sequel” a clever Hollywood sendup that firmly establishes the film’s governing tone of sly, selfreferential irony. Gervais and Fey turn out to be the ideal human foils for that enterprise, playing along with game professionalism and never letting the audience see them wink (at least not too obviously). Kermit, Miss Piggy and the rest of the gang may pick up life lessons about the dangers of getting everything you want, the value of loyalty and the importance of listening to your gut, but their grown-up chaperones will simply be grooving on the songs, inside jokes and zestfully calibrated mayhem. In perhaps the toughest test of all, “Muppets Most Wanted” figures out how to end on a genuinely hilarious note – or, in this case, lack of one. Well played, Muppets 2.0. Well played.
