Transplant Support Group of Northern Illinois provides resource for recipients, caregivers Story by CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com

or about six months after his wife, Barbara, passed away, Donald Kinsala lived life in a fog while he nursed a broken heart. His bride was only 56 years old when she died in 2011. Barbara Kinsala was one of 18 people who die each day waiting on a life-saving organ, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Sick with hepatitis C from a blood transfusion she received when she was 19 years old, Barbara’s disease didn’t present itself until 10 years before she died. Barbara needed a liver. After she died, Donald blamed the doctors. He blamed the medicine. He blamed the process that determines how organs are distributed. He blamed the blood tests that, despite how sick Barbara was, never hit that magic number to move her up the waiting list. He blamed every person who never signed up to be an organ donor. He blamed himself. “We went from praying her to get better, to praying for a transplant, to praying that she would die quickly because there was just no hope, there was none,” he said. After Barbara died, a friend from church told him about a support group for transplant survivors.

McSweeney’s resolution fights proposal to eliminate agency By KEVIN P. CRAVER

On the Net

kcraver@shawmedia.com A local lawmaker known for opposing the growth of government is throwing his weight in support of keeping the Fox Waterway Agency. State Rep. David McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills, introduced a resolution to the House on Friday that opposes Senate Bill 2696, which aims to eliminate the agency and fold its responsibilities on maintaining about 40 miles of the Fox River and the Chain O’ Lakes into the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. McSweeney in filing his House Resolution 934 called the legislation, filed by Sens. Terry Link, D-Waukegan, and Julie Morrison, D-Deerfield, “ill-conceived and shortsighted.” “For 30 years we have relied on the Fox Waterway Agency to deliver an essential service which no state agency is equipped to provide,” McSweeney said in a news release. “We should not turn

GENERAL INFORMATION: 815-459-4040

Rauner redefining his union stance It didn’t take long for Republican gubernatorial nominee Bruce Rauner to drop the word “unions” from his vocabulary. After bashing public employee union leaders for months as corrupt bosses who buy votes in order to control Springfield, Rauner and his campaign assiduously have avoided the use of the “U-word” since his victory last week. Instead, he’s switched to a line about how “our government is run by lobbyists, for special interests, and the career politicians in both parties let it happen.” Rauner’s campaign manager said on primary night that his boss is “pro-union.” Rauner himself insisted last week that he’s not anti-union and never has been. The candidate’s record clearly shows otherwise, however. Rauner kicked off his campaign with a widely published newspaper op-ed in which he called for legislation to allow individual counties to approve their own so-called “right-to-work” laws.

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Rich Miller Rauner’s only personal and extended interaction with an Illinois labor leader went horribly wrong. Rauner reportedly marched into the office of the president of Operating Engineers Local 150 late last year to pledge to the president that if he was with Rauner, then the candidate would go all the way with him, but warned that if the president was against Rauner, the candidate would essentially work to destroy him once elected. That message didn’t exactly go over too well. Weeks ago, some folks in the higher echelons of Rauner’s campaign assured me their candidate believed there was an opening with unions and he would try to exploit it. But that was when Rauner enjoyed a double-digit lead in the polls.

I think the expectation at the time was that at least some unions would consider a rapprochement with Rauner if he won the primary big. Better to cut a deal with an almost surefire winner than be crushed after he became governor. Rauner didn’t win big, however. His 2.8 percent winning margin fell infinitely short of almost all expectations. And that’s mainly because the unions appeared to have convinced lots of their Republican members to vote for Sen. Kirk Dillard and persuaded lots of non-Republicans to take GOP ballots. If you look at Sangamon County, the home of the Illinois capital and lots of state workers, you’ll see stark and convincing evidence of just how effective the union push was. In 2010 and in 2006, total Republican gubernatorial votes cast in the county were very similar, averaging just under 16.000. This year, the county’s turnout was abysmal, with less than 20 per-

cent of registered voters participating overall. But Republican votes for governor shot way up to almost 25,000. Dillard, the union favorite, won Sangamon with about 15,000 votes, almost equal to the total GOP turnout in the previous two primaries. Changing the landscape of a party primary is almost impossible, but the unions did just that. And because they almost beat Rauner, I doubt that few if any unions will be at all interested in cutting a deal with him. The question then becomes how long it will take the public employee unions to forgive Quinn, who pushed hard to cut their members’ pension benefits. And the danger for Quinn is that the public employee unions do what they did in the primary with Dillard – wait too long to finally make a decision.

Train derails at O’Hare, dozens hurt Union: Chicago train operator ‘extremely tired’ The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – An operator of a Chicago public-transit train that jumped the tracks and scaled an escalator at one of nation’s busiest airports Monday may have dozed off, a union official said. The woman said she had worked extensive overtime recently and was “extremely tired” at the time of the accident, Amalgamated Transit Union Local 308 President Robert Kelly told a news conference. The derailment happened just before 3 a.m. Monday at the end of the Chicago Transit Authority’s Blue Line at O’Hare International Airport. The timing of the accident helped avoid an enormous disaster, as the underground Blue Line station is usually packed with travelers. More than 30 people were hurt, but none had life-threatening injuries. A CTA supervisor and another worker near the top of the escalator said they saw the train enter at a normal rate of speed, about 15 mph, according to Kelly. “The next thing they heard the sound [of impact] and the yelling and the screaming,” he said. Investigators had not drawn any conclusions about

A derailed Chicago Transit Authority train car rests on an escalator at the O’Hare Airport station Monday in Chicago. More than 30 people were injured after the eight-car train plowed across a platform and scaled the escalator at the underground station. the cause of the accident, National Transportation Safety Board official Tim DePaepe said Monday afternoon, but were looking into whether faulty brakes, signals or human error were factors. The train is designed so that if an operator becomes incapacitated and his or her hand slips off the controls, it should come to a stop. Kelly speculated that, upon impact, inertia may have thrown the operator against the hand switch, accelerating it enough to send it catapulting onto the escalator. “I heard a ‘Boom!’ and when I got off the train, the train was all the way up the escalator,” passenger Denise

Adams told reporters. “It was a lot of panic.” The train operator, who has worked for the CTA for about a year, suffered a leg injury and has been released from the hospital. She will be interviewed by investigators Tuesday, Kelly said. Asked by a reporter whether she may have nodded off, Kelly responded, “The indication is there. Yes.” Kelly described the train operator after the accident as distraught, but still able to help passengers. “She immediately got out of the cab and started asking everybody and checking to make sure that everybody was OK,” he said.

Jumping the track likely dissipated the forward movement, thus lessening the accident’s severity, said Joseph Schwieterman, a transportation expert at DePaul University. A more abrupt stop would have slammed people more violently into the train’s seats and walls, he said. “That was a lucky break,” he said. “A train hitting a wall at ... high speed could easily have been fatal for many.” The injured were treated at area hospitals and released. Chicago Fire Commissioner Jose Santiago said Monday morning that most were able to walk away from the wreck unaided.

Mark Kirk said he has no plans to campaign with the GOP state lawmaker hoping to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin in November. Kirk told reporters Monday that he’s going to be “protecting his relationship” U.S. Sen. with Durbin Mark Kirk and won’t launch “into a R-Illinois partisan jihad.” Durbin is the Senate’s No. 2 Democrat. State Sen. Jim Oberweis of Sugar Grove State Sen. Jim Oberweis won the GOP nomination last R-Sugar Grove week. Oberweis said his name recognition will help his U.S. Senate campaign. However, Oberweis has been under fire in the past, including for remarks about immigrants.

Quinn gets SEIU nod in re-election bid CHICAGO – Gov. Pat Quinn has picked up a major labor endorsement for his re-election during a campaign that’s already focused on union influence. Service Employees International Union in Illinois said Monday it was backing the Chicago Democrat because of his stance on the minimum wage and integrity in Springfield. Quinn faces what’s expected to be a tough challenge from Republican businessman Bruce Rauner.

Lawmaker proposes increase in gun penalties SPRINGFIELD – An Illinois lawmaker wants to increase penalties for gun owners who

illegally carry firearms into schools. State Rep. Deborah Conroy is introducing a proposal that would make carrying guns into Illinois schools a felony. That includes preschools up to colleges and universities. Currently, first- and second-time offenders are charged with a misdemeanor. Another measure introduced by the Democrat from Villa Park increases fines for carrying guns into prohibited places from $150 to $500. Fines currently go to a state mental health fund.

Toll officials expect busy construction season CHICAGO – Motorists can expect a busy year of construction along Illinois’ major roadways. Illinois Tollway officials expect 2014 is going to be the biggest construction year ever. Last week, Gov. Pat Quinn announced a record $1.4 billion in spending to improve roads, bridges and interchanges. The money comes from a 15-year, $12 billion capital program. Bonds for the program are repaid through toll increases that took effect in 2012. The projects include rebuilding and widening 37 miles of Interstate 90 between Randall Road in Elgin and Interstate 39 in Rockford.

Construction begins on Navy Pier project CHICAGO – Parts of Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive were closed Monday as the first phase of construction starts on a Navy Pier overpass with pedestrian and bike lanes. The $60 million project will go south of the Chicago River to an area park. It’ll separate the lakefront trail from two busy streets. The flyover is expected to be finished in 2018.

Nearly 530 get death sentence in Egypt U.S.: Sentence ‘defies logic’ that so many people could get a fair trial in 2 sessions By MAGGIE MICHAEL The Associated Press CAIRO – An Egyptian court Monday sentenced to death nearly 530 suspected backers of ousted President Mohammed Morsi over a deadly attack on a police station, capping a swift, two-day mass trial in which defense attorneys were not allowed to present their case. It was the largest single batch of death sentences in the world in recent years, Amnesty International said. The U.S. State Department said it “defies logic” that so many people could get a fair trial in just two sessions.

The verdicts by a court in the city of Minya are subject to appeal and are likely to be overturned. But the outcome stunned human rights activists and raised fears that the rule of law is being swept away in the crackdown waged by the military-backed interim government against Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood since his overthrow last summer. The government is conducting a series of mass trials of Brotherhood supporters, some with hundreds of defendants. “It turns the judiciary in Egypt from a tool for achieving justice into an instru-

ment for taking revenge,” said Mohammed Zarie, a Cairo-based human rights lawyer. Egypt’s Foreign Ministry brushed off the criticism, saying in a statement that the judiciary is “entirely independent and is not influenced in any way by the executive branch of government.” The government has branded the Brotherhood a terrorist group, a claim it denies. Some 16,000 people have been arrested since Morsi’s ouster, including most of the group’s top leaders, as well as large numbers swept up by police during pro-Morsi

protests. A judicial official involved in Monday’s case told The Associated Press that the swift and harsh verdicts were meant as a deterrent. “Now no one would dare to think to attack a police station or a state institution after they saw death penalties falling on their group’s heads,” the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk about the case. He defended the mass trial, saying, “We are in exceptional circumstances. We don’t have time to summon each and every defendant,

prove their presence and confirm who are their lawyers.” He said he expected an appeals court to overturn the verdicts and order a retrial because defense lawyers were not given a chance to present their case – but he predicted a similar verdict. The 545 defendants were charged with murder, attempted murder, joining an outlawed group aiming at toppling the regime and stealing government weapons in connection with the attack last August in the town of Matay, south of Cairo. The town’s deputy police chief, Mohammed al-Attar, was killed in the violence.

5 bodies found in Colo. plane crash wreckage RIDGWAY, Colo. – The bodies of the five people were found in the wreckage of a single-engine plane that crashed into a southwestern Colorado reservoir, authorities confirmed Monday. Ouray County authorities said a remote-controlled rover and divers working in cold, murky waters spotted the bodies. The wreckage will have to be brought to shore before the bodies can be removed, authorities said. They said the plane is upside down in about 3 feet of silt and about 60 or 70 feet underwater. A salvage team is expected to begin raising the wreckage Wednesday. Authorities haven’t released the identities of the victims.

bin Laden trial jury in N.Y. hears closing arguments The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – After the Sept. 11 attacks, Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law became a key player in al-Qaida’s campaign of terror, a federal prosecutor told jurors Monday, while a defense lawyer argued that the government had no evidence against his client and was playing on the jury’s fears. In closing arguments at the trial of the son-in-law, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, Assistant U.S. Attorney John Cronan said that bin Laden had recruited the defendant to be an al-Qaida spokesman “to send a message – a message that al-Qaida’s attacks on Sept. 11 were justified that the United States got what it deserved.” Abu Ghaith, an imam from Kuwait, delivered fiery videotaped sermons in Arabic that were intended to drive “more men to al-Qaida and its mission,” Cronan said. “Al-Qaida needed these young men to be its next generation of terrorists.” For at least the third time in the trial, prosecutors showed jurors clips of a late 2001 or early 2002 “Convoy of Martyrs” promotional al-Qaida video that included Abu Ghaith speaking and scenes in which the second plane flies into a World Trade Center tower, leaving both 110-story towers in flames. Then they showed a video in which Abu Ghaith looks at bin Laden admiringly as the al-Qaida leader boasts that he knew the heat from the flaming towers would be enough to make them fall. Abu Ghaith’s attorney, Stanley Cohen, countered in his closing that there was no evidence his client played any significant role in al-Qaida in the aftermath of Sept. 11. He accused prosecutors of seeking to manipulate jurors by showing them the World Trade Center video and endlessly referencing 9/11, even though Abu Ghaith isn’t charged in the attack. The video “was designed to sweep you away in anguish and pain and to ask for retaliation,” he said. The defense attorney later warned the jury that prosecutors “want you to return a verdict not based on evidence, but based on fear.” Jury deliberations were set to begin Tuesday. Abu Ghaith, 48, who was brought to New York last year after his capture in Turkey, has pleaded not guilty charges he conspired to kill Americans and provided material support to al-Qaida. The defense has never disputed that Abu Ghaith associated with bin Laden after 9/11, but it contends he went to Afghanistan as a religious scholar concerned about oppression of all Muslims, he never swore an oath of allegiance to bin Laden and he had no role in promoting terrorism.

G7 ousts Russia, threatens sanctions Seeks to isolate Russia over Ukraine crisis The ASSOCIATED PRESS THE HAGUE, Netherlands – Seeking to isolate Russia, the U.S. and Western allies declared Monday they are indefinitely cutting Moscow out of a major international coalition and warned they stand ready to order tougher economic penalties if Vladimir Putin presses further into Ukraine. The moves came amid a flurry of diplomatic jockeying as the West grappled for ways to punish Russia for its annexation of the Crimean Peninsula and prevent the crisis from escalating. President Barack Obama and the leaders of Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Canada and Japan met in the Netherlands for an emergency meeting of the Group of Seven. In a joint statement after their 90-minute meeting, the leaders said

they were suspending their participation with Russia in the Group of Eight major industrial nations until Moscow “changes course.” The G-7 leaders instead plan to meet this summer in Brussels, symbolically gathering in the headquarters city of the European Union and NATO, two Western organizations that have sought to bolster ties with Ukraine. “Today, we reaffirm that Russia’s actions will have significant consequences,” the leaders’ statement said. “This clear violation of international law is a serious challenge to the rule of law around the world and should be a concern for all nations.” In an unexpected development, Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov met separately in The Hague with his Ukrainian counterpart, the highest level of contact between the two nations since Russia moved forces into Crimea nearly a month ago. U.S. officials said they welcomed the meeting but challenged Russia to take further steps to de-escalate the conflict. Lavrov sought to down-

play the significance of the West purging Russia from the G-8, describing the economic partnership as an informal club that has been superseded by other international forums. “If our Western partners believe that such format is no longer needed, let it be so,” Lavrov said. “We aren’t clinging for that format, and we won’t see a big problem if there are no such meetings for a year, or a year-andhalf.” Russia’s actions have sparked one of Europe’s deepest political crises in decades and drawn comparisons to the Cold War era’s tensions between East and West. Obama and other Western leaders have condemned Russia’s movements and ordered economic sanctions on Putin’s close associates, though those punishments appear to have done little to change the Russian president’s calculus. Hours before world leaders began meeting in The Hague, Russian forces stormed a Ukrainian military base in Crimea, the third such action in as many

days. Ukraine’s fledgling government responded by ordering its troops to pull back from the strategically important peninsula. In Washington, meanwhile, the Senate moved past a procedural hurdle and toward a vote, possibly late this week, on Russia sanctions and Ukraine aid. In New York, Ukraine pushed for the United Nations General Assembly to adopt a resolution this week reaffirming the country’s territorial integrity and declaring that the referendum in Crimea that led to its annexation by Russia “has no validity.” In the Hague, the G-7 leaders also discussed plans for increasing financial assistance to Ukraine’s central government. And they vowed to launch coordinated sanctions on key sectors of the Russian economy if Putin presses into areas of southern and eastern Ukraine. Among the sectors that could be targeted are Russia’s robust energy industry, as well as its banking and defense industries.

Reid slams GOP over Crimea; Senate bill advances The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday that Republicans may have helped Russia annex Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula, delivering a surprisingly sharp attack just before lawmakers advanced a bill authorizing sweeping U.S. sanctions on Russia and $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine. The 78-17 procedural vote in favor of the legislation spared President Barack Obama an embarrassing setback while he lobbies U.S. partners on a weeklong trip overseas to punish Moscow for its annexation of the Crimean peninsula. But Reid’s tone suggested a compromise with the Republican-controlled House may prove difficult, prolonging Congress’ inaction in the two weeks since Russian President Vladimir Putin’s

Local citizens wave flags symbolizing the Soviet victory in World War II and Russian flags in support of Eastern Pro-Russian Ukrainians in their fight against Ukrainian government Monday in Simferopol, Crimea. Ukraine’s government ordered troops to pull back Monday from Crimea, ending days of wavering as Russian forces seized bases on the peninsula. military intervention. Reid focused his ire on the GOP senators who blocked the bill before lawmakers went on break March 14. He urged them to consider “how their obstruc-

tion affects United States’ national security as well as the people of Ukraine” and said their delay of any congressional action “sent a dangerous message to Russian leaders.”

“Since a few Republicans blocked these important sanctions last work period, Russian lawmakers voted to annex Crimea and Russian forces have taken over Ukrainian military bases,” Reid said. “It’s impossible to know whether events would have unfolded differently if the United States had responded to Russian aggression with a strong, unified voice.” The Nevada Democrat’s charge came despite widespread bipartisan support for providing Ukraine with much-needed economic assistance and hitting Putin’s government with sanctions. And GOP Senate aides noted the House has passed different legislation, meaning the Senate bill could not have become law before recess anyhow. They blamed Reid and Democrats for blocking the Senate from taking up the House legislation.

NEW YORK – Five former employees of imprisoned financier Bernard Madoff have been convicted of conspiracy for helping him carry out his Ponzi scheme. The verdicts came Monday in a Manhattan trial that lasted nearly six months. The federal court trial was the first to result from the multi-decade fraud that landed Madoff in prison for 150 years. The defendants are all former employees of Madoff’s securities firm. They were accused of enriching themselves while telling an elaborate web of lies for decades. The fraud cheated investors of billions of dollars and duped government regulators. The massive fraud was revealed in December 2008 when Madoff ran out of money and was arrested.

Indiana withdraws from Common Core standards INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana is the first state to withdraw from the Common Core reading and math standards that were adopted by most states around the country. Republican Gov. Mike Pence’s office said he signed a bill Monday pulling Indiana from the program. Legislators earlier approved the measure requiring the State Board of Education to draft new standards outlining what students should be learning in each grade rather than using the Common Core standards. Pence said in a statement that he believes Indiana’s students are best served by education decisions made at the state and local level.

Grief, anger follows announcement Officials: Missing Malaysian plane went down in Indian Ocean The ASSOCIATED PRESS KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – After 17 days of desperation and doubt over the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, the country’s officials said an analysis of satellite data points to a “heartbreaking” conclusion: Flight 370 met its end in the southern reaches of the Indian Ocean, and none of those aboard survived. The somber announcement late Monday by Prime Minister Najib Razak left unresolved many more troubling questions about what went wrong aboard the Boeing 777 to take it so far off-course. It also unleashed a maelstrom of sorrow and anger among the families of the jet’s 239 passengers and crew. A solemn Najib, clad in a black suit, read a brief statement about what he called an unparalleled study of the jet’s last-known signals to a satellite. That analysis showed that the missing plane, which took off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing early on March 8, veered “to a remote location, far from any possible landing sites.” “It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, Flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean,” he said. His carefully chosen words did not directly address the fate of those aboard. But in a separate message, sent to some of their relatives just before he spoke, Malaysia Airlines officials said that “we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived.” Officials said they concluded the flight had been lost in the deep waters west of Perth, Australia, based on more thorough analysis of the brief signals the plane sent every hour to a satellite belonging to Inmarsat, a British company, even after other communication systems on the jetliner shut down. The pings did not include any location information. But

A relative of one of the Chinese passengers aboard the Malaysia Airlines MH370 collapses in grief Monday after being told of the latest news in Beijing, China. It was the grim news that families of the missing Malaysian Airlines flight had dreaded for weeks: new analysis of satellite data indicates the missing plane crashed into a remote corner of the Indian Ocean. day, was unable to find any materials before the search was put on hold. Search aircraft would remain in Perth Tuesday, AMSA said, and the Success was leaving the search zone until the seas calm down. Weather was forecast to improve Tuesday evening and the search was expected to resume Wednesday, the statement said. Authorities are racing to find any trace of the plane that could lead them to the location of the black boxes, the common name for the cockpit voice and data recorders, whose battery-powered “pinger” could stop sending signals within two weeks. The batteries typically last a month or perhaps a bit longer. The plane disappeared March 8. Some of the relatives who gathered to listen to Najib convulsed in grief at the news, with shrieks and uncontrolled sobs. Others collapsed into the arms of loved ones. “My son! My son!” cried a woman in a group of about 50 gathered at a hotel near Beijing’s airport, before falling to her knees. Minutes later, medical teams carried one elder-

Inmarsat and British aviation officials used “a type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort” to zero in on the plane’s last position, as it reached the end of its fuel, Najib said. In a statement, Inmarsat said the company used “detailed analysis and modeling” of transmissions from the Malaysia Airlines jet and other known flights to describe “the likely direction of flight of MH370.” Najib gave no indication of exactly where in the Indian Ocean the plane was last heard from, but searchers have sighted possible debris in an area about 1,240 miles southwest of Perth. High waves, gale-force winds and low-hanging clouds forced the multinational search to be suspended for 24 hours Tuesday, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority, which is coordinating the search over the southern Indian Ocean, said in a statement. The Australian navy supply ship HMAS Success, which had been headed to the location a search plane spotted some floating objects Mon-

Selamat Omar, father of a 29-year-old aviation engineer aboard the flight, said in a telephone interview that he and other families were waiting for word about whether they would be flown to Australia, closer to where it is believed the plane went down. “We accept the news of the tragedy. It is fate,” Selamat said. But Sarah Bajc, the girlfriend of an American passenger, Texas native Philip Wood, said that the announcement based only on data, without any recovered wreckage put resolution beyond reach. “I need closure to be certain but cannot keep on with public efforts against all odds. I STILL feel his presence, so perhaps it was his soul all along,” she wrote in an email. “Now Philip’s family and I will need some time for private grief.”

8NATION BRIEFS Coast Guard works to reopen ship channel

Prosecutor: Smoking caused fatal N.J. fire

GALVESTON, Texas – U.S. Coast Guard officials said they’re trying to resume barge traffic in and out of one of the nation’s busiest seaports as quickly as possible after an oil spill. How quickly that will happen is unclear, with cleanup efforts continuing in and around Galveston Bay. With cleanup well underway, the Coast Guard said it hoped to have the channel open to barge traffic as quickly as possible but that more tests were needed to confirm the water and the vessels traveling through the channel were free of oil.

POINT PLEASANT BEACH, N.J. – A cigarette discarded in a stuffed chair touched off a fire that killed four people at a New Jersey shore motel last week, authorities said Monday. Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato said the cigarette was discarded carelessly in the designated second-floor smoking area at the Mariner’s Cove Motor Inn. The prosecutor did not immediately say whether authorities know who discarded the cigarette or whether it was one of those killed or injured in the fire.

Tax sunset in January sets up fight with GOP • BUDGET Continued from page A1 the GOP nomination. Quinn’s speech Wednesday in Springfield will also be his opportunity to deliver a message to critical groups, like unions, that have been disillusioned with him but that he’ll need come November. “He’s kind of in a trick box,” said Chris Mooney, a political scientist at the University of Illinois at Springfield. Quinn could let the tax increase expire and deliver bad news to education and public safety workers. “On the other hand, if he says we should make the increase permanent, then he plays right into Bruce Rauner’s hands in the fall,” Mooney added. Rauner, a Winnetka venture capitalist, won a closer-than-expected GOP primary contest over state Sen. Kirk Dillard after spending and raising millions, including $6 million of his own money. Most of his first bid for public office focused on fighting “government union bosses” and curbing the tenure of career politicians. Quinn, who easily won his Democratic nomination, has already set out to differentiate himself from Rauner. He’s questioned Rauner’s business dealings, wealth and flip-flop on the minimum wage. But neither Quinn nor Rauner has offered specifics on the budget, which has been under election year scrutiny. Quinn asked lawmakers to move his budget speech from Feb. 19 until after the primary, which Republicans deemed as political posturing so Quinn would know his primary opponent. But Quinn said he needed more time to develop a five-year spending plan. He signed the last temporary tax increase after lawmakers approved it in the final hours of a 2011 legislative session with the idea that the approximately 67

percent increase would help fill a budget hole. The tax sunset coming in January has set the stage for a fight as Republicans demand the increase be allowed to expire and top Democrats predict dire cuts. The issue erupted Friday during a tense committee hearing where the heads of several state agencies testified and Republicans accused Democrats of putting on a “dog and pony show” to justify another tax increase. Universities are bracing for deep funding reductions which could mean tuition hikes, increases in student-to faculty ratios and fewer course offerings. Illinois Department of Corrections officials said a 20 percent cut would be “nothing short of disastrous.” Senate President John Cullerton has warned of a $3 billion budget gap – including the $1.6 dip in revenue – that would translate roughly into 27 percent across-the-board cuts, including teacher layoffs. That worries unions. Labor played a key role in the primary, with the largest unions backing Dillard and working to defeat Rauner. But now union members want reassurances from Quinn. Quinn has typically had strong support from unions, and picked up a major endorsement Monday from the Service Employees International Union in Illinois. But many labor groups have been angry with him for withholding pay raises and a landmark pension overhaul that cuts benefits for employees and retirees. Savings from the pension law – which is undergoing legal challenges from unions – won’t be factored into Quinn’s budget. “It’s a lot for him to do to win back the trust and faith of public employees,” said Dan Montgomery, president of the Illinois Federation of Teachers, who wants an extension of the tax increase, if even a partial one. “We start with that budget address and hearing what he says.”

The fight for public access Illinois’ journey toward greater transparency and openness in government made progress last year. That’s good news for every supporter of good government in a state notorious for government corruption. Attorney General Lisa Madigan recently released a 2013 report of activities by her office’s Public Access Bureau. For the record The bureau was formalized when While it is good to see that Illinois’ transparthe Public Access Bureau is ency law overhaul being utilized, it’s not so good took effect in 2010, when you realize that, when it a year after Gov. comes to freedom of informaRod Blagojevich tion and open meetings, far too was booted from many governmental employees office. and elected officials still don’t The overhaul get it. strengthened the Illinois Freedom of Information Act and Open Meetings Act, which are designed to ensure public access to government records and meetings – letting the sun shine on the darkest recesses of government, so to speak, to expose illegal and unethical actions. The Public Access Bureau is the place where citizens and news reporters can ask for help when FOIA records requests are denied and open meetings laws are violated. The bureau handled 3,426 formal requests for assistance last year, slightly above the 3,407 in 2012. Of the 3,036 requests for FOIA help, 82 percent came from the public, 16 percent from the news media, and 1 percent from public bodies. (In 2012, 80 percent came from the public, 16 percent from the news media, and 3 percent from public bodies.) Of the 387 complaints regarding open meetings violations, 70 percent came from the public, 26 percent from the news media, and 4 percent from public bodies. (In 2012, 77 percent came from the public, 18 percent from the news media, and 5 percent from public bodies.) The response shows that the general public is making extensive use of the Public Access Bureau, which is a positive development. The 2010 overhaul empowered the attorney general’s office to issue binding opinions regarding public access issues. Binding opinions issued last year required the release of traffic accident records regarding the Bloomington assistant police chief; judged that a fire protection district violated the law by convening a meeting 26 miles away from its normal meeting place; ruled that the dismissal of a Geneva school employee, without identifying the employee, violated the law; and required Knox County to disclose settlement agreements to the public that were covered by confidentiality clauses. While it is good to see that the Public Access Bureau is being utilized, it’s not so good when you realize that, when it comes to freedom of information and open meetings, far too many governmental employees and elected officials still don’t get it. They deny FOIA requests for public documents, prompting appeals to the bureau. They break the law regarding open meetings, prompting appeals to the bureau. We expected that the required training by thousands of public officials would increase their adherence to the letter and spirit of Illinois’ new transparency laws. That clearly did not happen in 2013. We call on government officials to make it happen in 2014.

Iowa tourism faces competition Iowa tourism ads will begin showing up soon in surrounding states, touting vacation opportunities through a $1.5 million ad campaign that is big news for Iowa, but nickels and dimes compared to our competition. All of the states targeted by these ads – Illinois, Minnesota, Kansas and Nebraska – spend much more on tourism marketing than Iowa, according to rankings by Skift.com, a travel industry news source. Illinois tops our region with $55.4 million last fiscal year, thanks to more attractions, a nationwide market and, most of all, dedicated hotel/motel taxes to pay for it. So this spring’s $1.5 million buy is a start, but will be fighting for attention among much more sophisticated and better funded ad campaigns. Illinois earmarks about 40 percent of hotel/ motel taxes for tourism. Most Iowa hotel/motel taxes go to municipalities, which decide individually how much, if any, goes to marketing. Without reliable statewide tourism marketing revenue, Iowa’s message relies on periodic appropriations, all of which fall far short of our Midwest tourism competitors. Quad-City Times

8IT’S YOUR WRITE To the Editor: NIMBY’s are back at it again, this time they are balking at a proposed cell phone tower at the Norge ski jump in Fox River Grove. I agree that having a giant antenna obstructing the view out my window is anything but desirable. However, what residents may not understand is that mobile data usage is projected to increase 600 percent by 2018 and additional infrastructure is absolutely necessary for our evolving technological landscape. Yes, there will be modest aesthetic costs to this project. However, the benefits – increased connection speeds and capacity, additional revenue for the ski jump and municipality, and the increased efficiency resulting from a greater availability of high-speed wireless connectivity – will provide an increase in economic activity for years to come that the village would be foolish to pass up. Kyle Walker Fox River Grove

(Note readers: The Fox River Grove Board of Trustees voted against the cell tower last week. It is drafting a response with its

denial to be voted on next month.)

Unintended consequence To the Editor: It is a matter of historical record that the heart of the Affordable Care Act, the individual mandate as a tool to achieve universal health care coverage, was a 1989 Heritage Foundation proposal, and it initially was supported by most Republicans, ironically including some who oppose it now. There is always room for measured debate on specific provisions within ACA. In my opinion, there were too many provisions stuffed within the bill. We still are discovering onerous taxes and other broad swatches of the law that should never have been included and need to be repealed. But today’s conservatives, in their blind opposition to all of ACA, are shooting themselves in the foot. They are unintentionally pushing American health care down the slippery slope toward a full government takeover. They are unwittingly making the liberals’ case for a single-payer system. As a political centrist and 37-year veteran of the health insurance industry (though my views are my own), I can vouch that our health care system is notoriously com-

to normal letters, such as Obama bashing, township bashing, overtaxed complaints, etc. I also have a complaint/suggestion. In the years that the McHenry County clerk is running for reelection, his or her name should not appear at the top the ballot you receive to vote on. What a bunch of free advertising for the clerk running for re-election by having their name appear in the upper corner of the ballot. Thus when Katherine Schultz was running for re-election, her name was top and prominent, which I believe violates the no electioneering within so many feet of a polling place rule. This elimination of the clerk’s name would only be in the year that the clerk is running for reelection. Chuck Berndt McHenry

Fred Phelps, the face of hate, advanced love Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church died Wednesday. Who will picket the funeral of the man who picketed so many? Let’s hope no one. First because there probably won’t be a funeral to picket, and second because, well, we’re better than that. I know the urge to celebrate his passing is strong. But as Funny Or Die quipped, “Feels weird to celebrate Fred Phelps’ death considering that sort of thing was basically his favorite hobby.” Instead, let’s celebrate all the good he accomplished in his life – completely inadvertently. It’s a fitting conclusion to the life of someone who, in the course of committing himself so loudly and grotesquely to hate (it was even on his bumper stickers), wound up proving again and again how much love there is in people. He would show up at a funeral with his family and their hideous signs, and others would rally. Even the KKK showed up. When a KKK Imperial Wizard comments that, compared with

VIEWS Alexandra Petri you, he is not a “hate-monger” and says he “thinks that it’s an absolute shame that [members of the WBC] show up and disrupt people’s funerals” – well, need you say more? A lot of people who set out to do good and advance the cause of love don’t accomplish this much. So thank you, Mr. Phelps, in a strange, strange way, for proving us right. Hate is well-publicized but small. Love is bigger. He showed up with his signs, and people responded with a Wall of Love. He kept achieving the opposite of what he set out to do. He faxed tons and tons of complaints – and a law was passed against fax harassment. He showed up at funerals with his hateful signs, and people gathered to shield the mourners, or the Patriot Guard Riders showed up, or the KKK. He tested our commitment to free speech, even extreme and ugly speech, and –

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

yup, it is still strong. The best arguments against some causes are their adherents. Phelps became the face of hate. The face of hate was protesting funerals and forcing children to hold up big odious signs. It wasn’t good PR for hate. Phelps made hate look hateful. “Gee,” you thought. “If these are the people who think being gay is wrong, maybe thinking that is wrong. This is horrible. Can you direct me to where there is tolerance? I don’t want to be on the same side of history as these folks.” And look at what tolerance and love have achieved since Phelps began drawing attention in the 1990s: most notably, the end of “don’t ask, don’t tell” and the spread of marriage equality to 17 states and the District of Columbia. Admittedly, Phelps proved that there are more good people than not, in much the same the way that somebody smashing a pane of glass proves that there are a lot of good window-repair shops in the world. You wish you didn’t have to bother. But it’s

good to know. So, despite the understandable urge, don’t dance on his grave. Don’t cheer. Instead: • Stop picketing funerals, at all, ever. It is a terrible way of getting attention. • Play with a child. Do not hand that kid a hateful sign. This should go without saying. • Love someone. • Send a thank-you note. • Call your grandmother. • Take a nap. • Make a big colorful sign that says something polite. Take it to a place that is not having a funeral. • Love your neighbor. • Stand up for someone who is being shouted down. • Treat people like people. • Make a sandwich. • Feel the urge to say something hateful. Don’t succumb. Know you’re better than that. You are. If Phelps’ life kept proving anything, it was that. • Alexandra Petri writes the ComPost blog at washingtonpost. com/blogs/compost.

TWO HOSPITALIZED AFTER EXPLOSION DUNDEE TOWNSHIP – Two workers were transported to the hospital Monday after their plumbing equipment exploded while working on a Dundee Township home. Around 10:25 a.m., two plumbers were working in the basement of a home at 35W030 Fontenac Drive when a propane torch exploded, Rutland-Dundee Township Fire Department Chief Richard Thomas said. Thomas said the small explosion caused the workers to receive minor burns, and both were transported to Sherman Hospital. The explosion created a small fire in the basement, which was quickly extinguished by firefighters, Thomas said. The home was not damaged. Fire departments from West Dundee, East Dundee, Carpentersville, Huntley, Pingree and Elgin assisted on the call.

Man pleads guilty to DUI CL resident was previously convicted in crash that killed TV anchorman By CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – A plea deal was reached for a Crystal Lake man who previously was convicted on charges that he drove a snowmobile while drunk in a crash that killed his friend, TV anchor-

man Randy Salerno. Scott D. Hirschey, 50, pleaded guilty Monday to aggravated driving under the influence, stemming from a July 2012 arrest in Crystal Lake. Three years earlier, Hirschey was convicted in Wisconsin for the Jan-

uary 2008 crash that killed 45-year-old Salerno, a CBS-2 Chicago morning news anchor and Crystal Lake native. In that case, Hirschey was driving a snowmobile built for one with Salerno on the back when he lost control and crashed about 20 miles

north of Eagle River, Wis. Hirschey pleaded no contest to homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle and was sentenced to three years probation. For the most recent case, Assistant State’s Attorney David Metnick said Hirschey was arrested about

3:30 p.m. on July 27, 2012, after a driver reported his erratic driving. He eventually struck a construction barrier and another vehicle, Metnick said. Hirschey failed multiple field sobriety tests, and at

CARY COUPLE FACE ROBBERY CHARGES A Cary couple face armed robbery charges in Kane County after they allegedly took less than $50 and a cellphone from a dress shop, Elgin police said in a news release. On March 6, Cordell Miller, 25, of the 400 block of Crest Drive, went into a dress shop with a handgun and demanded an employee show him the cash register, police said. After taking less than $50 and a cellphone, Miller fled the scene. The employee was not hurt. Elgin Police Cmdr. Glenn Theriault said Miller’s 28-yearold wife, Jessica, served as the getaway driver. Cordell and Jessica Miller, who are in custody at the Lake County Jail on unrelated armed robbery charges from Waukegan, also face armed robbery charges in McHenry County. The Cary Police Department has said Cordell Miller has implicated himself in an armed robbery at 296 Cary-Algonquin Road.

TOP: F.H. Paschen employees work Monday on the walls of the Algonquin Road overpass. ABOVE: A motorist passes under the Algonquin western bypass. F.H. Paschen employees return to the project this week, with a scheduled completion in the fall. By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com ALGONQUIN – Motorists soon can expect to see construction workers back on Route 31 and Algonquin Road as they continue work on the western bypass. Work is scheduled to begin again this week, weather permitting. As construction goes on, there will be intermittent lane closures on Algonquin Road, between Main Street and Meyer Drive, Algonquin Assistant Village Manager Mike Kumbera said.

“They will not be the longterm closures that were on Algonquin Road last year,” Kumbera said in an email. “The intermittent closures will be as needed for work on the ramps, overpass and electrical work.” Kumbera said when the lane closures occur, there will be at least one lane open in each direction. The lane closures could vary, such as one lane being open for eastbound traffic, while there are two lanes open for westbound traffic. The $33.3 million construction project includes

construction of 2.11 miles of a four-lane divided highway, diamond interchange, four new bridges, retaining walls and noise abatement walls west of downtown Algonquin, according to the village website. The new road is meant to divert traffic from downtown Algonquin. After the

project is completed, which is anticipated this fall, Main Street will become a village road. Work on several parts of the project will continue this spring. Crews still need to complete the staining of a retaining wall on Edgewood Drive, which is structurally complete. Side street aprons and driveways along Route 31 between Edgewood Drive and Huntington Drive are scheduled be finished in the spring, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation’s project website.

Construction of the bridges over Crystal Creek and Algonquin Road and various retaining walls will continue, IDOT said. The noise abatement wall construction will proceed on the east side of Route 31 from Railroad Street to Crystal Creek, according to IDOT. Street lighting work along the bypass route from Huntington Drive to the quarry access is scheduled to proceed into the spring. The new northbound lanes from Cary-Algonquin

and community members was important to encourage continued participation. “It provides more visibility for working on environmental things,” Matsuoka said. “Especially in McHenry County, it gets pushed to the back burner a lot, so we need to be rewarding the government groups and the other groups who do good things.” The organization presented the McHenry County Department of Health’s Division of Environmental Health with the Government Award for its efforts toward providing

ROCKFORD DIOCESE

Local parishes to participate in ‘Be Reconciled’ initiative By ERIC SCHELKOPF eschelkopf@shawmedia.com Monsignor Aaron Brodeski of Holy Cross Catholic Church in Batavia is hopeful that parishioners across the Rockford Diocese will respond well to a “Be Reconciled” day, an initiative to make the sacrament of reconciliation more available this Lenten season. As part of the initiative, parishes in the 11-county diocese, including Holy Cross

Church, will offer confessions from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. April 9. A letter announcing the effort was read at all parish Masses on March 1 and 2. “I think it’s an outstanding idea,” Brodeski said. “It’s nice when we do things on a parish level, but it’s also very nice when we have initiatives like this that go beyond our parish, that really cover our whole Catholic diocese, so all of our parishes do something together.

I think that everybody is excited about it.” Aaron Brodeski Monsignor of Holy Cross Catholic Church think that everybody is excited about it.” He said he is hopeful that

many people will take advantage of the opportunity that the “Be Reconciled” initia-

tive lends. “Holy Cross is a nice, active parish, and we are very blessed with a lot of people who take advantage of this sacrament of reconciliation,” Brodeski said. “I have a lot of good confessions here on a regular basis. I think that by making this available at every parish in the diocese all day long, I think it just makes it so extremely convenient for everybody and it just kind of puts an exclamation point, in a sense, behind

the importance of this, and it also says that we are ready in making ourselves completely available that day.” In announcing the initiative, Bishop David Malloy of the Rockford Diocese said that “Lent is a privileged moment to focus on forgiveness.” “Let’s make this Lent a time of deep and joyful reconciliation which Pope Francis has called us to,” Malloy said in a letter to all Catholics.

On the sidelines Latinos being left behind in health care overhaul By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The nation’s largest minority group risks being left behind by President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Hispanics account for about onethird of the nation’s uninsured, but they seem to be staying on the on the sidelines as the White House races to meet a goal of 6 million sign-ups by March 31. Latinos are “not at the table,” said Jane Delgado, president of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, a nonpartisan advocacy network. “We are not going to be able to enroll at the levels we should be enrolling at.” That’s a loss both for Latinos who are trying to put down middle-class roots and for the Obama administration, experts say. Hispanics who remain uninsured could face fines, not to mention exposing their families to high medical bills from accidents or unforeseen illness. And the government won’t get the full advantage of a group that’s largely young and healthy, helping keep premiums low in the new insurance markets. “The enrollment rate for HispanicAmericans seems to be very low, and I would be really concerned about that,” Brookings Institution health policy expert Mark McClellan said. “It is a large population that has a lot to gain ... but they don’t seem to be taking advantage.” McClellan oversaw the rollout of Medicare’s prescription drug benefit for President George W. Bush. The Obama administration says it has no statistics on the race and ethnicity of those signing up in the insurance exchanges, markets that offer subsidized private coverage in every state. Consumers provide those details voluntarily, so federal officials say any tally would be incomplete and possibly misleading. But concern is showing through, and it’s coming from the highest levels.

“The enrollment rate for Hispanic-Americans seems to be very low, and I would be really concerned about that.” Mark McClellan Brookings Institute “You don’t punish me by not signing up for health care,” Obama told Hispanic audiences during a recent televised town hall. “You’re punishing yourself or your family.” Only last September, three of five Latinos supported the national overhaul, according to the Pew Research Center. Approval dropped sharply during October, as technical problems paralyzed the health care rollout and the Spanish-language version of the HealthCare.gov website. Hispanics are now evenly divided in their views. A big Gallup survey recently showed tepid sign-up progress. While the share of African-Americans who are uninsured dropped by 2.6 percentage points this year, the decline among Hispanics was just 0.8 percentage point. In California, where Latinos account for 46 percent of those eligible for subsidized coverage through the exchange, they represented 22 percent of those who had enrolled by the end February and had also volunteered their race or ethnicity. The state is scrambling to improve its numbers in this week’s home stretch. Experts cite overlapping factors behind disappointing Latino sign-ups: • A shortage of in-person helpers to guide consumers. “In our community, trust and confidence is so important – you want to make sure it’s OK before you share all this personal information,” Delgado said. There’s been a lack of “culturally sensitive” outreach to Latinos, added Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas. • Fear that applying for health care will bring unwelcome scrutiny from

immigration authorities. The health insurance exchanges are only for citizens and legal U.S. residents, but many Hispanic families have mixed immigration status. Some members may be native born, while others might be here illegally. Obama has tried to dispel concerns, saying information on applications will not be shared with immigration authorities. • The decision by many Republican-led states not to expand Medicaid, as they could under the law. With states like Texas and Florida refusing to expand Medicaid, many lowincome Latinos will remain uninsured. However, Medicaid expansion is separate from coverage on the exchanges, which is available in every state. Latinos don’t seem motivated to sign up for that, either. • Technical difficulties that delayed the federal government’s Spanish-language enrollment site. CuidadoDeSalud.gov has also had to cope with clunky translations. Delgado’s group is asking the administration to extend the March 31 deadline for Latinos who got tangled up in website problems. Officials say that’s not likely. However, they haven’t ruled out a little extra time for anyone who started an application but wasn’t able to finish by the deadline. A recent enrollment outreach event in Houston drew Mary Nunez, who works with her self-employed husband in the florist business. They have been uninsured since she lost her job last year. In that time, she’s only been to a doctor once – to get a refill on blood-pressure medication. “Praise the Lord, we haven’t gotten sick,” said Nunez, adding that she knows luck eventually will run out. She made an appointment for inperson assistance to review her options on the Texas exchange. But since the couple’s income fluctuates from month to month, she was uncertain how much they could afford. A deadline is looming, she noted, and “Hispanics always leave it for the last minute.”

GrubHub ups anticipated size of IPO to $177.9M NEW YORK – Online delivery company GrubHub plans to raise up to approximately $177.9 million from its initial public offering, increasing the offering’s expected size from $100 million a month ago.

MARIAN CENTRAL FOOTBALL

Recruiting for Hurricanes QB starting to heat up Junior has pair of D-I offers already from Ohio, Toledo By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com Marian Central quarterback Billy Bahl had not yet hit the radar of most college coaches before this past football season, his first as the Hurricanes’ starter. That changed quickly. Bahl put up huge numbers for Marian’s offense and helped the

Wrigley will be ready for opener CHICAGO – If you love baseball, you’ve heard of Cubs greats Ron Santo and Billy Williams. How about Chris Fritsche? Have you heard of him? No? The name doesn’t ring a bell? Sheesh. And you call yourself a fan. A funny scene unfolded Monday outside of Wrigley Field, even if no tourists stopped to snap pictures with their cellphones. To the left sat a statue of a young Santo, baseball in hand, ready to snap a throw across the diamond. To the right sat a statue of a lean Williams, following through with his sweet swing, watching a hit take flight. And in the middle sat the living version of Fritsche, of Wauconda, who parked his semi-trailer squarely between the statues and waited for his next short-distance haul. He was one of dozens of workers who worked to help prepare the 100-year-old stadium for its April 4 home opener, a massive project that seemed at least as daunting as morphing a last-place team into a World Series contender. “It’s like Noah trying to get the ark ready in two days,” Fritsche said with a laugh. “That’s about how I would describe it to you, brother.” Except, instead of loading animals two at a time, Fritsche and his fellow workers spent most of their afternoon unloading piles of snow 30 cubic yards at a time. Perhaps you’ve heard. It snowed a lot here this winter. Mother Nature apparently was mad at somebody – maybe she took exception to Dale Sveum’s firing? – so she dumped about 79 inches of snow (and counting) to make all of us suffer. Here’s the thing, though. Baseball season arrives every spring, regardless of how pleasant or how painful the winter has been. You need a clean field to play baseball, and if you’re in the business of filling seats, you need those seats to be clean, too. So, next thing you know, you’re calling a bunch of contractors and subcontractors. Because somebody has to get the park ready before the team returns from spring training in Arizona. “It’s been a mess,” said Eric Clark, a retail worker who has watched crews prepare the stadium from across the street at Wrigleyville Sports. “Seeing it finally starting to come into place is amazing.” Give a small slice of the credit to Fritsche, whose day started when he left his house at 4:30 a.m. for the long commute to the North Side. Fritsche’s shift didn’t start until 8 a.m., but he wanted to beat the inevitable, insufferable traffic jam into the city. The plan worked as Fritsche arrived about 6 a.m. and had two hours of downtime before his work began. When it did, he started a long day of driving in circles.

Hurricanes to an 8-3 record and firstround Class 5A playoff victory. Now, Bahl has two NCAA Division I offers (Ohio and Toledo) with more likely coming in an important time leading up to his senior season. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound junior is trying to enjoy the intense scrutiny from recruiting while visiting several schools and preparing to have coaches visit Marian this spring. “It’s new for me; nothing was really happening during the season,” said Bahl, who completed 57.3 percent of his passes (160 for 279) for an area-best 2,510 yards with 29 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. “It all came at once, it was kind of a shock. It’s very stressful, the whole recruit-

ing process, but I’m excited about it.” Marian offensive coordinator Dirk Stanger said he believes Bahl is right where he needs to be and will reap benefits from his offseason work. “No question, the kid can spin it with the best of them,” Stanger said. “We’ve Billy Bahl been working on his overall athleticism so we can use some of the quarterback run game we did with Chris (Streveler). [Billy’s] had an awesome offseason so far.” Bahl likely will be Marian’s

fourth consecutive D-I quarterback, following Jon Budmayr (Wisconsin), Ben Krol (Eastern Illinois) and Streveler (Minnesota). Stanger offered high praise for the best parts of Bahl’s game. “He’s a very natural thrower,” Stanger said. “Looking and comparing him to the other three guys – Jon, Ben and Chris – he’s progressing closer to Jon in terms of his overall throwing ability. I’ve really been pleased with how he’s coming along with his overall throwing motion.” Bahl throws with his teammates before school twice a week, along with weightlifting after school and speed work at Davis Speed Center in

Crystal Lake. He has grown an inch and put on 15 pounds since the beginning of the football season. Bahl has gone to junior days at Toledo and Western Michigan, and also hopes to visit Penn State, Miami (Ohio), Central Michigan and Ohio in the next few weeks. “A bunch of schools have contacted me and said they want to watch me throw at school,” Bahl said. “[DI] didn’t become as much a reality until I started getting messages on Facebook and emails from quarterback coaches [in the offseason] saying how interested they were and wanted to come see me.”

Crystal Lake Central senior Luke Francis attempts to bunt during the fifth inning of Monday’s game against Palatine at Lippold Park in Crystal Lake. The Tigers lost, 7-6.

CRYSTAL LAKE – Throughout the offseason, Crystal Lake Central sophomore Fred Birr had been working on his curveball. On Monday, the right-handed pitcher had a chance to show his stuff. The Tigers sophomore baseball team doesn’t have any games scheduled over spring break, so varsity coach Dan Badgley called up several players to the varsity squad for the week, including Birr, to get a look at some of the young talent in the program. What he saw blew him away. Badgley was impressed with Birr, who worked five innings of two-run ball Monday afternoon in a 7-6 loss to visiting Palatine at Lippold Park. “I think I’m going to use him as a starter,” Badgley said of Birr. “He proved it today that he is right in the middle of that rotation, if not part of the top couple of guys. Freddie earned his spot today, big time.” Birr came in to pitch in the third inning in relief of junior pitcher Robby Cormier. Cormier started the game for the Tigers (0-2), and although he had good movement on his pitches, highlighted by a tailing fastball that cut in on right-handed hitters, he had trouble with his control. Cormier was able to strike out five batters in his two innings of work, but he also walked six batters and hit another with a pitch. The Pirates took advantage of the free bases and turned a walk into a run three separate times in the first two innings.

Marlowe Middle School wrestlers place 2nd in state Marlowe Middle School’s wrestling team got an idea during the season it was good, just not how good. The Mustangs, located in Lake in the Hills, took second as a team at the Illinois Elementary School Association state meet at the Northern Illinois University Convocation Center in DeKalb. Zach Spencer became the first Marlowe wrestler to win an individual state title with his championship at 105 pounds. “It’s by far the best we’ve ever been,” Mustangs coach David Joslyn said. “I think we finished 30th one time.” Marlowe was strong in both duals and tournaments during the season.

BASEBALL: BREMEN 6, PRAIRIE RIDGE 5 (9 INN.)

“We went through the dual season and won all 17 of our duals,” Joslyn said. “Nobody was closer than 28 points against us.” Marlowe won tournaments at Deerfield, Lake Villa, Gurnee and on its home mats. The Mustangs knocked off eventual team state champions Deerfield Caruso at both the Deerfield and their home tournaments. Marlowe also won the Fox Valley Conference tournament. “I knew we had a good team,” Joslyn said. “I didn’t know it was as strong as it was.” Spencer might have gotten some of his best competition in the practice room. Juan Quiroz placed third,

also at 105, for Marlowe. The IESA allows schools to enter multiple competitors at a weight class. Spencer beat Quiroz in the finals of the Island Lake Regional and the DeKalb Sectional, and both matches were decided by a point or two. “They were so close. They went to overtime in regionals,” Joslyn said. After wrestling most of the year at 112, Spencer went down to 105 for the state series. Also placing for Marlowe were Anthony Randazzo, second at 119, and Peter Murray, third at 100. Joslyn said his team attracted some club wrestlers this year. The appeal was being able to compete as a team.

“The parents said they like the dual competition,” Joslyn said. “They don’t get that with club. Everything is individual. It’s much more team oriented. They learn to cheer and pull for each other. It was very exciting.” Area wrestlers who placed at IESA state: Valentino Mendoza, second at 215, and Matt Tobin, sixth at 135 for Johnsburg, Mason Brakefield, second at 167 for McHenry Middle School, Jake Leske, third at 145 for McHenry Parkland. At the Illinois Kids Wrestling Federation state meet March 13 to 15 in Rockford, the following wrestlers placed:

Cary-Grove Matmen: Cadin Koeppel, fourth at senior 166, and Bradley Peters, eighth at novice 122. Crystal Lake Wizards: Christoper Flores, third at senior 215; Frank Carone, fourth at senior 138; Martin Krasinski, sixth at senior 147; Casey Allen, seventh at senior 108; and Austin Ernd, eighth at 115. Golden Eagles: Joel Mylin, seventh at novice 62. Junior Wolves: Trey Piotrowski, sixth at senior 130.

Score 3 runs in 7th inning to tie contest By ANDY SCHMIDT sports@nwherald.com CRYSTAL LAKE – After getting beat handily Saturday, Prairie Ridge’s baseball team wanted to put together a better effort Monday afternoon against Bremen. The Wolves did that and more but couldn’t make a second late rally, losing 6-5 in nine innings at a frigid Lippold Park. Prairie Ridge outhit Bremen 10-4, but it wasn’t enough in the loss as the Wolves committed two errors and walked eight Braves batters. The Wolves (0-2) trailed 4-1 going into the bottom of the seventh inning and had seen their past 10 hitters get retired before coming up with three runs to force extra innings. Carson Getzelman led off by reaching on a third strike that got away from the catcher that was followed by Christopher Stack walking. John Patterson then lined a triple into right center field to score Getzelman and Stack to pull Prairie Ridge within 4-3. After a strikeout, Austin Covers grounded out, which allowed Patterson to score to tie the score at 4. In the ninth inning, losing pitcher John Myers got into trouble after a single, an error and a hit by pitch to load the bases with no one out. Myers, however, struck out Sean Grant and got Kyle Ramos to hit into a fielder’s choice, where third baseman Caleb Aldridge was able to get a force play at the plate just in time for the second out. Myers was about to get out of it when Nick Strache grounded to Patterson at shortstop. Patterson’s throw to second base trying to get the force out however was wide, which allowed Tyler Banovich and David Strom to score to give Bremen a 6-4 lead. Prairie Ridge refused to surrender. Covers hit an RBI single to score Stack to pull Prairie Ridge within 6-5 with one out in the bottom half of the inning. Myers lined out to third base, however, and Dustin Thelander popped out to right field to end the final threat for the Wolves. Prairie Ridge coach Glen Pecoraro was pleased with his team’s ability to get back into the game and not just give up during their final at-bats. “I like the fact that we battled back and battled back even there at the end,” Pecoraro said. “Jack Myers hits the ball on the screws and the third baseman makes a heck of a play. That gets by him and it scores one. It might have scored two. I loved the effort. I think we showed a lot of fight.” Prairie Ridge had its chances to score in the early going, but left two on base in the first inning and left the bases loaded in the third without scoring in either inning.

Woods: ‘Still too soon’ to know if fit for Masters WASHINGTON – Tiger Woods is not sure whether his ailing back will allow him to play in the Masters, which is two weeks away. “For Augusta, it’s actually still a little too soon, to be honest with you,” Woods said Monday at a news conference to announce that Quicken Loans is the new title sponsor of his golf tournament. “That’s kind of the frustrating thing about this.” The Masters is the only major tournament the 38-yearold Woods never has missed. Four of his 14 major championships came at Augusta National, including his first in 1997. He last won the green jacket in 2005. This year’s Masters is April 10-13.

Birr strikes out 9, walks 1 in Tigers’ loss to Palatine • TIGERS Continued from page C1 The amount of walks drove up Cormier’s pitch count as he tossed 58 pitches in the first two innings before being pulled in favor of Birr, trailing 5-1. Birr, not used to being a reliever, had a strong first inning as he struck out the first two batters and got the third to hit a soft infield pop fly. His effectiveness allowed the Tigers to keep the score within reach and steadily chip away at the 5-1 deficit. “Fred did a great job, just a great job,” Badgley said. “He kept us in the game and he energized the team and gave us a chance to win.” The Tigers scored two runs in the fourth and another two in the fifth to draw within one. Palatine scored in the top of the fourth to go up, 6-5, before Central outfielder Riley Popell scored the tying run in

The Tigers’ half of the sixth featured a scare as Blake Gleason fouled a 2-2 pitch off his left cheek. The ball caromed into his nose and Gleason fell to the ground. He was taken

away in an ambulance to the outpatient center at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Crystal Lake where he received X-rays on his nose. “I was more stunned than anything at the time,” Gleason said over the phone from the waiting room. “They just

packed my nose and wanted to take X-rays to see if there is a break.” The X-rays revealed a fracture and the junior will see a specialist Tuesday to determine further action. Gleason’s replacement grounded out and Larkins, the next batter, hit the tying RBI single. Palatine scored in the top half of the seventh during a two-out rally to bring the score to 7-6, where it stayed. Birr took the loss but finished with nine strikeouts while walking only one. His added work on his curveball was evident as five of his strikeouts were looking as he froze the Palatine batters with the big breaking pitch. “I felt good through the majority of the time,” Birr said. “I felt pretty confident with my fastball and pretty good with my curveball. “I’ve been working on the curveball for a long time and I thought it worked pretty well today.”

Bahl plans to visit several camps over the summer • BAHL Continued from page C1 Stanger said NCAA rules allow coaches two visits to a player’s school between April 15 and May 31, one to evaluate as a player and one to evaluate as a student. “With Chris, we had 36 different coaches come in to watch him throw,” Stanger said. “I can guarantee you Bil-

ly’s going to be along the same lines. Coaches want to watch you in person, that comes into that whole evaluation.” Stanger will let coaches know when Bahl and his teammates throw before school and the coaches then will show up at Marian. With Streveler, there often were six to eight coaches each session. They can speak with Stanger at length, but can only speak to players in passing.

Stanger has been through the process with quarterbacks and other D-I recruits at Marian in the past 10 years to offer Bahl solid advice. “[Stanger] says not to rush it, find a place where you feel at home and a place you like everything about,” Bahl said. “And don’t shorthand any schools, make sure to get out and see them all and get to know all the coaches.” Bahl plans to make several

visits in the summer to oneday camps, where coaches from numerous schools can evaluate players in drills. “I plan on going to as many one-day camps as I want to or need to,” Bahl said. “I’m not trying to commit early. Whenever I find the place I want to be, that’s when I’ll do it. Hopefully, it’ll happen before the season starts. But if it doesn’t happen, I’m not going to rush it.”

PRETORIA, South Africa – Oscar Pistorius and Reeva Steenkamp argued fiercely in the turbulent weeks before he killed her, and the athlete’s girlfriend told him she was sometimes scared by his behavior, which included jealous outbursts in front of other people, according to phone messages revealed at the Olympian’s murder trial Monday. “I’m scared of u sometimes and how u snap at me and of how u will react to me,” Reeva Steenkamp texted Pistorius, in a message read out in court by police Capt. Francois Moller. In another message, Steenkamp wrote to the double-amputee runner: “I can’t be attacked by outsiders for dating u AND be attacked by you, the one person I deserve protection from.”

DePaul women upset Duke in NCAA tourney DURHAM, N.C. – Megan Rogowski scored 22 points and Megan Podkowa added 18 to help DePaul upset Duke, 74-65, Monday night in the second round of the NCAA tournament. Brittany Hrynko added 14 for the seventh-seeded Blue Demons (29-6). They earned their third appearance in the round of 16 by hitting 14 3-pointers and forcing second-seeded Duke into 21 turnovers with their high-pressure defense. DePaul will play the James Madison-Texas A&M winner Saturday in the Lincoln Regional semifinals.

Knee Pain?

NEW FDA APPROVED TREATMENT PROVEN TO RELIEVE KNEE PAIN

You DO NOT Have to Suffer From Knee Pain Any Longer!

The Blackhawks’ Ben Smith (center) battles for the puck against Nashville Predators’ Craig Smith (right) as goalie Pekka Rinne looks on during the second period of Sunday’s game at the United Center.

BLACKHAWKS

Musical talent part of Smith’s versatility By MARK LAZERUS

Next

mlazerus@suntimes.com Ben Smith’s dad is a composer and a professor of composition at the University of Hartford. His mom, a former concert pianist, teaches piano at a girls prep school in Connecticut. His oldest brother is a professional oboist, touring the country. His uncle is the music director of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Smith played guitar and trombone growing up. And although he is sheepish about admitting it, he sang bass in high school, too. So if national-anthem singer Jim Cornelison gets a last-minute bout of laryngitis, the Blackhawks can turn to the bench for a replacement. “Oh, I hope not,” Smith said with a laugh. “Hopefully, they’ll get someone else to do that.” Heck, why not? It’s about the only role Smith hasn’t filled with the Hawks. From shutdown fourth-line winger and penalty-killer to his new role as the front-of-the-net presence on the power play to his recent stint as Patrick Kane’s center, Smith – who made the team out of training camp largely because he would have had to clear waivers to be sent back to Rockford – has established himself as one of coach Joel Quenneville’s most versatile and reliable weapons. “Benny started off all right, but I’ve seen a real nice progress to his individual game all year long,” Quenneville said. The culmination of that progress was his surprise shot at filling the long-standing void at second-line center. Smith made the most of it, posting a goal and an assist in a victory against the Detroit Red Wings and winning 11 of 15 faceoffs in his two full games in that spot. It was the chance Smith had been waiting for his whole career. Then came Kane’s knee injury, and Smith’s big opportunity was gone. He was dropped

vs. Dallas, 7 p.m. Tuesday, CSN, AM-720 back down to the third line with Peter Regin and Jeremy Morin. “It’s a little frustrating or disappointing, I guess,” Smith said. “But injuries happen. It’s tough for our team – not just for me, but for everyone – that Patrick’s not playing right now. You never really know what’s going to happen. It was great to have that opportunity to play with him, and hopefully, it possibly could happen again. But, for me, it’s always kind of been game by game.” Game by game, year after year. Since winning two national championships in four years at Boston College, Smith patiently has waited his turn. At the end of his first season in the minors, Smith was called up for the 2011 playoffs and scored three goals in a seven-game loss to the Vancouver Canucks. But it wasn’t the breakthrough moment he hoped for. He played only 13 games with the Hawks in 201112 and only one last season before becoming a last-minute replacement for Marian Hossa in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final – enough to get his name etched on the Cup. Now, at 25 – four months older than Kane and three months younger than Jonathan Toews – and at the end of his second NHL contract, Smith finally is the every-game NHL player he expected to be. Smith, who credited his love of the Hartford Whalers for inspiring him to play hockey, said he never doubted he would get there. “If there ever was that much doubt, then it never would have happened,” he said. “You just have to believe that whatever you go through, if you keep pushing and working hard, that it’s going to work out in the end.”

HOW DOES THIS TREATMENT WORK?

Over 100 million Americans suffer from knee and joint pain? This pain accounts for 25 percent of all visits to primary care physicians and half of all anti-infl ammatory drug prescriptions. Have you ever wondered how different your life would be if you could get rid of your knee pain? Where would you go, what would you do? What would you give for a day, a week or a lifetime of pain-free mobility? We are pleased to announce that knee pain sufferers don’t have to wait any longer to get the most advanced, non-surgical, FDAapproved treatment. If you suffer from any degree of knee pain, we invite you to regain control of your life by visiting Superior Health & Wellness, a state-of-the-art medical facility.

We use diagnostic ultrasound, allowing the doctor to pinpoint problem areas with extreme accuracy. A viscosupplement is then injected, and the healing process begins. Viscosupplementation bonds with naturallyoccurring joint fluid to create a lubricating and cushioning layer. It reduces pain, infl ammation and swelling of the joint. Patients compare the treatment to getting a shot at the doctor’s offi ce, and report little pain or discomfort.

WHAT IS INJECTED INTO THE KNEE? Hyaluronic acid is similar to substances that occur naturally in your joint. The outside of the joint (joint capsule) is comprised of a sturdy, fi brous tissue. The lining of the joint capsule contains synovial cells, which secrete a thick, viscous synovial fl uid. Hyaluronic acid contributes to the viscous nature of the joint fl uid, nourishes the cartilage, helps eliminate waste products, lubricates the joint and acts as a shock absorber inside the joint. Hyaluronic acid is reduced or lost from those who suffer from osteoarthritis. It is similar to changing the oil in your car. If your car were to run low on oil, you would have some serious wear and tear on the moving parts.

WHAT IS OSTEOARTHRITIS (OA)? Osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease, is the most common type of arthritis. In osteoarthritis, the surface layer of cartilage breaks down and wears away. This allows the bones under the cartilage to rub together, resulting in pain, swelling and loss of motion of the joint. Although in some people it progresses quickly, in most individuals joint damage develops gradually over years.

WHAT CAUSES OSTEOARTHRITIS? The exact cause of osteoarthritis is unknown. Factors that might cause it include the following: • Being overweight • Getting older (wear and tear) • Joint injury • Joints that are not properly formed (alignment/ imbalance problems) • A genetic defect in the joint cartilage • Stresses on the joints from certain activities, including sports, work and leisure activities

Will my Pain go away Over Time? ✔ Do you wake up with knee pain? ✔ Does your knee pain keep you from certain activities? ✔ Have you been told you need a knee replacement? ✔ Are you active and sometimes suffer from sore knees? ✔ Do you take medications for knee pain? ✔ Do you have diffi culty going up and down stairs due to knee pain? ✔ Are you considering surgery to alleviate knee pain? ✔ Have you tried everything to get rid of knee pain with out success? If you 4 any of these questions, you are ready to experience the relief and healing found at Superior Health & Wellness.

PAIN FREE!

What Do Patients Say? I had reached a point that I could no longer work out in the yard for more than 15 minutes. I couldn’t lift anything heavy, and some days I would have to use a cane because my knee hurt so much. I no longer need to do that. It is progressively getting better each week. Thank you Superior Health & Wellness for caring about my wellness! --Jenn B. “I had suffered from severe knee pain for months. I went to four different specialists without any relief. When I called Superior Health & Wellness, the staff was understanding and knowledgeable, schedules were rearranged and treatment was provided immediately. THANK YOU for helping me.” --Joann F.

WHAT ELSE IS AVAILABLE TO TREAT KNEE PAIN? After careful study and several trials, the FDA a proved a new treatment aimed at helping those with knee pain. This new treatment is a high-tech answer for all those who think that surgery, dietary supplements and prescription medications are the only option to eliminate knee pain.

Consider these facts before surgery People who suffer from knee pain typically try supplements or pain medications before seeking help from a doctor. When all else fails and the pain is too much, some feel that surgery is the only option. Before you put yourself through months of immobility, pain, rehab and hefty medical bills, consider something else. Surgery

BEARS NOTES

FIVE-DAY PLANNER

Bears restructure Cutler’s deal By KEVIN FISHBAIN kfishbain@chicagofootball.com The beauty of Jay Cutler’s new contract is that it reportedly allowed the Bears to make adjustments for cap space at any time, and they did so recently. NFLPA records confirm that Cutler’s base salary for 2014 is now $17.5 million, a $5 million reduction from the $22.5 million. As first reported by Brian McIntyre, the $5 million was converted into a signing bonus, and that lowers Cutler’s 2014 cap number to $18.5 million, which creates $4 million in cap space for this year. The restructuring does increase Cutler’s cap charge $1 million in each of the next four years (the bonus is prorated for cap purposes). Even at $17.5 million, Cutler still has the highest base salary in the NFL for 2014, $2.35 million more than Eli Manning (per Spotrac). The new cap hit is now the fifth-highest cap number in the league; it originally was first. The Bears will need about $5 million to sign their rookie class and they likely are not done adding veterans to the team. There is a hole at backup running back and depth still is needed on defense. Phil Emery said he expected another quar-

terback to sign and the Bears still could choose to bring back Zack Bowman and/or Eben Britton. Mills earns bonus: Heading into last summer’s training camp, right tackle Jordan Mills was considered the backup right tackle to J’Marcus Webb, and a project to start down the line. Instead, he won the job after the first preseason game and wound up starting all 16 games. Now, Mills will get rewarded for outperforming his draft slot in the form of a performance-based bonus, Jay Cutler and it’s the highest in the NFL, according to multiple reports. According to Tom Pelissero of USA Today, the league has a pool of $3.46 million to “reward players who make the least and play the most.” Mills, who made a base salary of $495,000 in 2013, will get a performance-based bonus of $318,243. He played every snap of the season until the first series of Week 17 against the Packers, when Mills had to leave the game after injuring his foot. According to the Bears’ website, the list of other Bears to get

performance-based pay is (in order) Chris Conte ($210,957), Isaiah Frey ($179,411), Zack Bowman ($162,273), Jon Bostic ($143,309), Matt Slauson ($134,485), Dante Rosario ($126,156), Alshon Jeffery ($121,902) and David Bass (($111,228). The checks for the bonuses won’t come until April 1, 2016. No compensatory picks: The NFL handed out 32 compensatory picks for the 2014 draft Monday to 13 teams, but the Bears were not included. Compensatory picks are given when “a team losing more or better compensatory than it acquires in the previous year.” The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four. The picks are in Rounds 4 through 7 and cannot be traded. According to the league, the Bears qualified for a compensatory pick under the net loss formula, but did not receive it because that net loss was ranked 33rd in the league, and only the top 32 compensatory free agents get picks for teams. For May’s draft, the Bears have seven picks – including two in the sixth round and none in the seventh.

BULLS 89, PACERS 77

Bulls knock off Pacers Prevent Indiana from celebrating division crown By HERB GOULD hgould@suntimes.com CHICAGO – Indiana had a chance to clinch its second straight Central Division title Monday night at the United Center. The Bulls had a chance to make a statement that, despite a season of personnel angst, they don’t plan to be slouches in the playoffs. Give the Bulls their statement 89-77 – with an exclamation point. “We had a good resolve about us; we kept battling,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. “When we hit a rough patch, we just kept going. When you play them, that’s how you have to play.” Before a delighted sellout of 21,803, the Bulls put on a show, especially in the third quarter, when they broke out of a sluggish shooting night and flexed some muscle, too. Taj Gibson, unhappy with the Bulls’ loss Friday at Indiana,

Next vs. Portland, 7 p.m. Friday, WCIU, AM-1000 bounced back with a big game, finishing with 23 points and eight rebounds on 9-for-15 shooting. “They really dominated us last game, especially on the glass, and they were laughing,” Gibson said. “It’s frustrating when you’re playing a team that’s like your rival and they’re slapping fives and laughing in your face. I didn’t like how I played last game. I didn’t like that at all. I wanted to have a better showing on defense, and the offense just came to me.” Down 34-33 at halftime, the Bulls opened a 47-37 lead with 14-3 run to start the third quarter. Mike Dunleavy drained three jumpers to lead the charge. They would score 56 second-half points against the NBA’s stingiest defense. A defining moment came when Kirk Hinrich ran down and stole the ball from Paul George, who seemed to let up, bracing for a foul. After George (21 points) raised his hands in disbelief at the no-call, Gibson

drilled home a big dunk at the other end and celebrated wildly. “When you have great hustle plays, those types of things unite and inspire your team,” Thibodeau said. “Instead of giving up an easy bucket, you get an easy bucket. Those things are huge.” The gasping Pacers called a much-needed timeout to escape the Bulls’ determined toughness. Although it’s a ways off, it sure felt like a playoff meeting. Meanwhile, despite losing Derrick Rose to injury and dealing Luol Deng, the Bulls have the most wins (28) in the Eastern Conference since Jan. 1. Indiana coach Frank Vogel admitted playing the Bulls and the Heat, Indiana’s opponent Wednesday, is different than playing a tail-ender. “They count the same, but they certainly don’t feel the same,” Vogel said. “If you’re playing somebody with a poor record, it’s not going to feel the same as somebody you could see in the playoffs. The level of competition is better. It feels like the stakes are higher. I like playing games like this.’’ AP photo They can’t be nearly as fun, however, when you’re on the Bulls forward Taj Gibson celebrates after his dunk off a rebound during the second half of Monday night’s game against the Indiana Pacers at the United Center. The Bulls won, 89-77. wrong end of the score.

Larson dazzles at Fontana Hibbert responds to BULLS NOTES

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Kyle Larson was ninth on the final restart at California, with four rows of traffic to navigate in two laps in a frantic bid for the best finish possible. With Kurt Busch and Tony Stewart at the front, Larson wasn’t even thinking about victory. “Tony’s going to win,” Larson radioed his Chip Ganassi Racing team. “Man, these restarts are crazy. You never know,” replied crew chief Chris Heroy. So Larson went for the win. He weaved low on the start alongside teammate Jamie McMurray, but quickly surged ahead. Then he blew past childhood idol Jeff Gordon and found himself in a side-byside race with Paul Menard. Using the apron, his wheels inching dangerously close to the infield grass, Larson quickly cleared Menard. He gained five spots on the first lap, and now had only three cars in front of him. He again drove low. As Kyle Busch passed his older brother and Stewart for the lead, Larson swept past Stewart and tucked in behind Busch. He looked inside for the lead, but Busch threw a block that stopped Larson’s momentum. No matter. Second was just fine for the rookie. “Wow,” Larson said after following Busch across the finish line at Auto Club Speedway. “Wow! Wow! Good job!” Larson was echoing the sentiments of thousands of fans who just had been wowed by a dazzling drive through the pack. If there were any doubts that he belonged at NASCAR’s top level, the 21-year-old answered them at Fontana. He beat Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick on Saturday for his first win in a Nationwide Series race, then seemed to use everything he’d learned from watching the big names all those years to nearly steal Sunday’s victory, too. Larson, you might recall, is the former sprint car driver who has been raved about by Kasey Kahne, Stewart and Gordon for years. They had seen what he could do in a car, including one magical night in 2011 at Stewart’s Eldora Speedway, where Larson became only the second driver in history to win in all three kinds of USAC cars in a single night. Although his interest was in IndyCar, he was snapped up before the 2012 season by Chip Ganassi and placed in a NASCAR driver development program. He was 19 and

Workers clear snow out of Wrigley stands • MUSICK Continued from page C1 The pattern went like this: Crews cleared piles of snow out of the stadium and dumped them on to the sidewalk along Sheffield Avenue, just below the right-field bleachers. Then more workers used shovels and front-end loaders to scoop the piles of dumped snow and lift them into Fritsche’s trailer.

When the trailer was filled, Fritsche pulled west on Addison and headed toward a nearby lot where he could dump the snow. Most of it was dirty brown and frozen into large chunks, resembling something like baseball gloves for giant snowmen. After Fritsche dumped the snow, he returned to Wrigley for another load. All told, he and his coworkers estimated that they hauled 20 to 30 trailers’ worth. Not bad for one day’s work.

Now, as for the painting and the sodding and the stocking and the staffing and everything else that needs to happen before the Cubs’ home opener … . Fritsche smiled. “They’ve got a lot of work to do,” Fritsche said. “But they’ll get it done.”

Told that Taj Gibson said, “There’s a lot of floppers’’ on the Indiana Pacers, Roy Hibbert relayed the message to forward David West. “That’s who said it, DWest! Taj called us floppers,” the Indiana center said. “I haven’t taken a charge in probably four years. He’s entitled to his opinion. I’m just going to go out there and play Tom Thibodeau hard.” Gibson took his shot after the Bulls’ 91-79 loss at Indiana on Friday. “He’d just got a couple fouls so he probably was a little frustrated,” Hibbert said. “Chicago is a terrific team. They always bring it. They play extremely hard. So that raises our level of competition, too.” Rivalry? The roles have reversed a bit since the series started heating up between the Bulls and Pacers in the 2011 playoffs.

Now Indiana, which leads the Eastern Division, is on top, and the Bulls are one of the teams hoping to beat them in the playoffs. Still, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau dismissed the notion of a growing rivalry. “You can’t allow your emotions to get in the way of getting the job done,” Thibodeau said. “I think you (media) guys are into the rivalry. We know they’re good. To beat a good team, you have to play well. I think the focus has to be on what are the things that are necessary to win.” Joakim Noah acknowledged emotions are involved, however. “You’re supposed to be frustrated after a loss,” Noah said. “Everybody’s frustrated after a loss, you know? It’s all part of the process. Of course, Indiana’s a team we want to beat. Bulls bits: Monday was the fourth and final regular-season meeting between the Bulls and the Pacers. Indiana won two of the first three. ... The Pacers have been following the Bulls’ defense-first blueprint. They were allowing an NBA-best 91.9 points a game. The Bulls were second (92.1).

Risk far outweighs the reward • MORRISSEY Continued from page C1 “He’s doing a little more, he’s coming along, he’s doing some things in practice, but he’s out for the year,” coach Tom Thibodeau said before the Bulls played the Indiana Pacers on Monday night. The amount of rust on Rose has to be significant. He has played a total of 10 games the past two seasons, thanks to the torn left ACL he suffered in the 2012 playoffs and the torn right meniscus he suffered in November. Not being a doctor or a knee whisperer, I don’t know the risk of injury if he were to come back for the playoffs. I do know that, if he were to get hurt again this year, the public blowback wouldn’t be something from which the Bulls and Rose could recover. The response would be harsh: He came back too soon, and for what? It’s not easy to write that the combination of Kirk Hinrich and D.J. Augustin is a better option than Rose in the postseason, but it happens to be true. They have shared the point guard duties for the majority of the Bulls’ 71 games this season, and if that doesn’t count for something, then everything coach Tom Thibodeau has told us about practice, teamwork and effort means nothing. Rose’s teammates would have to get used to a whole different way of playing. The Bulls have been much smarter about their approach to Rose’s injury this time around, announcing he was out for the season soon after he tore his meniscus. You’ll recall, in the way you might recall hitting your funny bone over and over again, how painful the will-he/won’t-

he soap opera played out last season. Not this time. Not yet, at least. But Rose hasn’t ruled himself out. Until he does, Elvis isn’t dead. The idea of Rose playing any time this season is a bad one, and I’m miles away from being convinced the Daily News report comes close to being an idea. Last week, the Bulls were discussing the possibility of Rose being ready for Team USA’s minicamp in July, and now they’re talking about him being ready for the NBA postseason? I think we just skipped about five steps and at least 150 denials from the Bulls, the protocol for all Rose noncomebacks. That the latest news of a playoff return was mentioned in just one sentence in the middle of an NBA column in New York would seem to be a textbook definition of burying the lead. But, again, rather than dismiss it out of hand, let’s at least analyze it from the standpoint of logic ... OK, I just did. It still makes no sense – for all the same reasons it made no sense last year: • You don’t want Rose coming back when the competition is at its fiercest. • The Bulls aren’t going anywhere this season. • The risk of a Rose return far outweighs the reward. The people running the Bulls aren’t dumb. Nor are they rash. I think they understand that it’s better to live to fight another season. Let him get healthy. It was Derrick Rose bobblehead night Monday at the United Center. That’s the most we should see of him this year.

CUBS SPRING TRAINING

Signs point to Barney’s job security under threat By GORDON WITTENMYER gwittenmyer@suntimes.com MESA, Ariz. – Add the Texas Rangers to the list of playoff-minded teams that need middle infield help after they announced second baseman Jurickson Profar could miss half the season with a shoulder injury. You see that, Darwin Barney? “You just stay focused and worry about your job today,” the Cubs’ Gold Glove second baseman said. Meanwhile, the Cubs’ newest acquisition is utility man Emilio Bonifacio, whose natural position is second, and top-prospect Javy Baez is being introduced to second base for a possible big-league debut this year. You watching this, Darwin Barney? “That’s the nature of the game,

and you don’t [read] anything into it,” said Barney, a fourth-year starter who was viewed as a potential core player and “glue” guy for the newworld-order Cubs until a .208 season last year raised doubts. “If I can be the player that I’ve been in the past, then there’s no reason that I don’t fit into the plan here,” he Darwin Barney said. “But it’s all about taking care of business and helping this team win, so my mind’s on Opening Day and trying to prepare to help this team win. All that extra stuff, that’s just part of the game. For now, it’s part of the baseball reality for Barney, 28, who might be at his biggest career crossroads since he was a rookie – a $2.3 million

player for a team in transition, with prospects pushing and trade rumors looming. “Every year you have to prove yourself,” said Barney, who hit .276 and .254 in his two full seasons before the previous field staff asked him to make fundamental changes to his hitting approach entering last season. “For me, it’s just that. My focus is on winning. “If I do those things to help the team win, then there’s value there, so that’s where I’m at with that.” And if he doesn’t? If he doesn’t

have the bounce-back year many expect? “I don’t think that way,” he said. If this spring is any indication, the bounce already has returned. He’s reached base at least twice in three of his past four games and has a .364 onbase percentage this spring – including six walks in 44 plate appearances (compared to 36 in 555 last season). “Obviously, getting on base is important and something I’ve been working on,” said Barney, who was coached away from his nature last year to look for pitches to jump on and drive – and who has since gotten back to trying to see the ball longer and taking it the other way if necessary. “Find ways to get on base – that’s where my head’s at right now,” he added, “and not worry about hitting doubles and home runs and OPS

– kind of get away from worrying about the numbers and just trying to put good at-bats together and swing at good pitches. “I’m happy with my spring in that regard. Hopefully, it can translate into the season.” Wherever that season might take him – within the organization’s plans, or somewhere else. “You just have to take care of business on the field,” he said. “You’re not only competing with the guys in the clubhouse; you’re competing with the guys across the league to play this game as long as you can.” So trade rumors, prospects and new guys who play his position? “It’s nothing new,” he said.

White Sox give pitcher $21M, 5-year deal By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN dvanschouwen@suntimes.com PEORIA, Ariz. – With Jose Quintana and Chris Sale under club control through 2020 and 2019, respectively, the White Sox now have the top two pieces of their starting rotation pieces locked in for a good, long while.

As in Sale’s vs. Cincinnati, case, the Sox didn’t have to 3:05 p.m. Wednesday, give Quintana CSN, MLBN big bucks yet – he likely would have been under team control for five years – but it seems worth any arm-injury risks on the Sox’s part to have those pitchers’ services paid for at a price that figures to climb out of the Sox’s reach down the road. “It not only rewards them for the hard work they have done, the success they have had, but it allows us to have come cost certainty and obviously extending control,’’ general manager Rick Hahn said. “It frees us up to allocate our resources to other needs, which is beneficial, and takes a couple of other things off our to-do list, which is always nice.” Sale signed a $32.5 million extension last spring.

The Sox hold options for 2019 at $10.5 million and for 2020 at $11.5 million. Quintana gets a $1 million buyout if either option is declined. “That’s a lot of money.

I want to say thank you to the Chicago White Sox for this opportunity to be here a long time.” Quintana’s rise to being a bona fide No. 2 or 3 starting pitcher has been quick. A repeatable delivery, adaptability to coaching, willingness to work and poise all factored into his development that placed him first among American League left-handers in starts, third in runners per nine innings and fifth in ERA. Last season, he was 9-7 with a 3.51 ERA in more than 200 innings pitched. Until Sunday, he had a sketchy spring, not lasting more than three innings, taking a batted ball off his shin that forced an early exit and then getting shelled two starts ago. On Sunday, everything was right again in Quintana’s world. He pitched five scoreless innings of one-hit ball against the Colorado Rockies, a significant outing considering he had faced nine Oakland A’s his previous start without retiring a single batter. It turns out the contract discussions were close to being finalized when he faced the A’s, and it weighed on his mind.

“That one’s probably on me,” Hahn said. “He either thought that we were still considering the final deal or that we had said ‘OK’ to the final deal, but he needed to get through that outing and pass a physical before it became official. That’s a lot for someone to handle.” The Sox also have John Danks, who is in the third year of a five-year, $65 million deal that isn’t as team-friendly as Sale’s and Quintana’s because of Danks’ shoulder injury, under wraps. It wasn’t too long ago when the Sox steered clear of long-term contracts for pitchers. “There’s risk any time you do a multi-year deal with any player and the risk is a little bit heightened any time you do it with a pitcher,” Hahn said. “But given where we’re at and where we plan on going we know when we have an opportunity to lock up and extend control over key pieces it’s a risk that makes sense. I don’t think that’s unique to our market. I think any club would want to get a pitcher like Chris Sale or Jose Quintana on terms similar to these.”

WHITE SOX NOTES

Abreu returns to the lineup By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN dvanschouwen@suntimes.com PEORIA, Ariz. – Jose Abreu was back in the lineup after taking two days off to rest his sore left ankle. Abreu said five days of rest were recommended but that was “way too much” for him. Abreu’s mobility looked fine in Monday’s 7-6 victory against the Seattle Mariners. In the first inning, he dove to his left and gloved a ball on the foul line before flipping to pitcher Erik Johnson for an out. He got a workout at first, letting Robinson Cano’s ground ball go under his glove and through his legs for an error

By GORDON WITTENMYER

in the third, then seconds later made a backhand stop of Kyle Seager’s smash as he was holding Cano at first. The concern is that the ankle issue lingers and forces Abreu intermittent rests during the season. But Sox manager Robin Ventura doesn’t seem worried, nor does Abreu, who taped his ankles while he played in Cuba. Abreu suspects the soreness stems from using arch supports, and said he’s “feeling really good right now.” “It’s not on my mind right now,” he said. “It cannot be in my mind. We’re just excited for the season.” Paul Konerko and Marcus

Semien homered in Monday’s victory for Sox, who overcame Robinson Cano’s four RBIs in a 7-6 win over the Seattle Mariners on Monday.

A quality last start for Johnson: Rookie right-hander Erik Johnson wasn’t great but wasn’t bad, allowing three runs over six innings in his last outing before the regular season. Johnson allowed four hits and three walks and struck out three. “Today was a good one to end on and another good one to build off of,” Johnson said. “If I can put as many zeros on the board for my team, be aggressive in the strike zone early then good things will happen for me.”

MESA, Ariz. – Nothing appears imminent, but sources said the Cubs are fielding latespring calls from teams trying to fill roster needs before the season opens for most next week. Low-level talks the final week of spring training aren’t unusual, but the Cubs shopped pitcher Jeff Samardzija and others all winter, and every executive in baseball knows much of the roster is open for discussion. A handful of teams are looking for infielders (Darwin Barney?), and outfielder Nate Schierholtz has been linked to the Detroit Tigers’ need for outfield help. Sources said it’s possible the Cubs could deal somebody from their big-league roster by Monday’s opener, but estimate the chances as no greater than 25 percent. The haunting? In a

wide-ranging interview with the Arizona Republic, Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels expressed regret over the Matt Garza trade he made with the Cubs in July that netted the Cubs top pitching prospect C.J. Edwards, big-league pitcher Justin Grimm and potential Opening Day third baseman Mike Olt, along with minor-league pitcher Neil Ramirez. “I thought way too short term with the Garza deal last year,” Daniels told the newspaper. “That one’s got a chance to haunt us and haunt me.” Cubs manager Rick Renteria saw all from that trade except Edwards in camp this spring. “I won’t speak for him,” Renteria said, “but do I think we’re in a good place with the guys we got? Sure. And that’s all I’ll say.” Grimm said he saw the comments, and “that surprised me. ... In terms of me

and Olt and Edwards, hopefully, it does haunt him.” Castro update: After another day of minor-league games Monday, including his first action in the field since a March 2 hamstring injury, Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro said he’s close to being ready for the season opener – “really close.” Next up for Castro is live batting practice Tuesday morning and an aggressive fielding practice later in the day – “simulated gamelike, reactionary defensive work at shortstop,” Renteria said. “We’re going to push him.” Castro, who said he felt no pain running hard in Monday’s game, said the biggest test comes when he returns to big-league game action. “It’s not the same intensity over there in the minor leagues [compared] to the big leagues,” he said. “I want to see when I play in a big-league game, and I can know where I’m at. I feel very good right now.”

TIP OF THE WEEK

How to plank like a pro Have you ever tried planking on top of a fridge? How about on a desk, a train or a billboard? No? But you might have laughed at those crazy viral photos of planking in unique places. Although their form isn’t quite up to par, these plank daredevils are onto something – a plank is truly one of the best core exercises. With this one move, you can improve your posture, reduce lower back pain, strengthen your core and increase your stability. Try to incorporate planks into your workout at least three times a week to reap the rewards. The name plank is selfexplanatory when done properly: your body position should be straight, like a wooden plank. Start in the standard push-up position: face down, hands shoulderwidth apart, directly below the shoulders. Balance on your toes and contract your abs. Once you can hold your plank for one or two minutes with good form, it’s time to amp it up. For a balance challenge, lift one leg and the opposite arm, then hold. For increased intensity, jack your legs out and in for 30-second intervals. To really target the obliques, the side plank should be your new go-to. Lie on either side balancing on one arm with your legs straight and the top leg stacked directly above the bottom. Align your head with your spine and keep your hips up and your abs contracted.

stretching, is the

way to go MORGUREFILE.COM PHOTOS

BY WAYNE L. WESTCOTT More Content Now Resistance exercise enhances joint flexibility as well as muscle strength, and static stretching exercise performed after resistance exercise enhances muscle strength as well as joint flexibility. Muscle is an amazing tissue that has both the ability to contract and shorten to about 50 percent less than its resting length and the ability to relax and WAYNE L. WESTCOTT lengthen to about 50 percent more than its resting length. As you probably know, the best way to increase a muscle’s strength capacity is to perform progressive resistance exercise. The recommended strengthtraining protocol is to use a weight load you can lift for 8 to 12 repetitions in good form. When you can complete 12 repetitions with proper technique, you increase the weight load by about 5 percent for the next exercise session. This is known as the double-progressive training procedure, in which you first increase the exercise repetitions and then you increase the exercise resistance.

In addition to being highly effective for incremental strength gains, the doubleprogressive training procedure greatly reduces the risk of doing too much too soon and experiencing a musculoskeletal injury. This same double-progressive training protocol can be applied to improving a muscle’s capacity to stretch. Begin by stretching the target muscles to the point where they have lengthened to their comfort limit and hold this position for about 10 seconds. Do not stretch your muscles to the point of discomfort or pain, as this can be counterproductive. As an example, if you sit on the floor with your legs straight in front, you might be able to flex your hips far enough to grasp your shins just below the knees without feeling discomfort in your rear thigh (hamstrings) muscles. Maintain this stretched position for 10 seconds, relax for 10 seconds, and repeat. After a few sessions, when this procedure becomes more comfortable, hold the stretched position for 15 seconds and repeat. The final progression at this position is to maintain the stretch for 20 seconds and repeat. Completing 20-second stretches (without discomfort) is an indication you can safely increase the muscle elongation. You might there-

fore grasp your shins an inch farther from your knees and progressively increase your stretch time from 10 to 15 to 20 seconds. In this doubleprogressive training protocol, your hamstring muscles should increase gradually their elasticity for improved hip flexibility. In our previous research studies, we repeatedly have found performing musclestretching exercise in conjunction with muscle-strengthening exercise results in a win-win situation. Our results have demonstrated full-range resistance exercise enhances joint flexibility as well as muscle strength, and static stretching exercise performed after resistance exercise enhances muscle strength as well as joint flexibility. In three separate studies, research participants who stretched their muscles after each resistance exercise experienced 19 percent greater strength gains than those who did not incorporate the stretches. As examples of combined training, the chest press exercise was followed by a 20-second stretch for the chest muscles, and the low back exercise was followed by a 20-second stretch for the low back muscles. In addition to the physiological benefits of combining muscle-strengthening and muscle-stretching activity,

most of our fitness program participants like to do so simply because they find it feels good to stretch each muscle group after a resistance exercise. Other research has revealed static stretches should not be performed before doing resistance exercise. This being the case, we recently conducted a study in which participants performed a carefully controlled dynamic stretch before each resistance exercise. For example, just before doing the chest-press exercise, the participants performed five slow and progressively larger arm circles to stretch the chest muscles without holding a stretched position. In general, our study participants were pleased with the pre-exercise dynamic stretches. However, when given the choice to do preexercise dynamic stretches or post-exercise static stretches, almost everyone opted to perform 20 seconds of static stretching after the resistance exercise. Based on our research and experience, it seems the preferred protocol of combining stretching and strengthening activity is to do static stretches shortly after performing your resistance exercises.

Don’t be alarmed by diagnosis numbers It’s not uncommon to read a headline in your local newspaper about a new report exclaiming about an increase or decrease in the number of people affected by a certain disease. If there is a significant increase, these reports can cause people to become concerned and anxious. But before you consider this information to be factual and reliable, it’s important to determine how these figures were ascertained. For example, the reason for the increase in the number of people being diagnosed

VIEWS Dr. Murray Feingold with a certain malady may not be because more people actually have the disease, but due to the use of new diagnostic tests such as MRIs or blood studies, now allowing us to be able to make the diagnosis. It’s not due to some type of epidemic causing the increase. The most recent data concerning the number of children with autism is an excel-

lent example of why it is important to determine how such numbers are obtained. A recent study showed there is going to be a 31 percent decrease in the number of children diagnosed with autism. Sounds like good news, but unfortunately, there is a story behind the story. In May 2013, a revision of the diagnostic criteria for autism was made in the newest edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. As a result of this revision, certain diagnostic subgroups of the autism spectrum disorders, such

as Asperger disorder, were eliminated. Thus, it gives the incorrect impression that fewer children are being diagnosed with autism. Although these diagnoses were eliminated, the children are still there and still have symptoms. Unfortunately, because their diagnosis was eliminated, many of them now fail to qualify for the support they need, such as social services and medical benefits. So it’s important to be aware of how new numbers are determined that declare an increase or decrease of

various illnesses. And it is essential those who change the criteria for the diagnosis of these conditions are aware of the negative impact such changes might have on providing the much-needed support these children require. • Massachusetts-based Dr. Murray Feingold is the physician-in-chief of The Feingold Center for Children and president of the Genesis Fund, a nonprofit organization that funds the care of children born with birth defects, mental retardation and genetic diseases.

Ice skating offers health benefits to seniors BY JEANNE ERDMANN The Washington Post For most people near age 50, ice is a source of peril, a sure fall and maybe even broken bones. The idea that someone approaching 60 and even past 70 would not just step on ice intentionally, but do so in figure skates (kind of like knife edges strapped to boots), with plans to master difficult moves and perhaps train for competitions, may sound crazy. But it isn’t to older skaters like me. I’m 60 and have been figure skating for the past nine years. I skated in grade school, watching in awe at the skaters on center ice, trying to copy what they did. I never perfected my spins and jumps back then, and I hung up my skates. Now I try to get on the ice three to four times a week; many of my skating pals of similar age train more often than that. We skate before work, after work, on lunch hours, on weekends, whenever we can find time. We train off the ice with weights, Pilates, ballet, ballroom dancing, anything to improve strength and flexibility. We put in long practice hours, travel to competitions, and, yes, even glue sequins to costumes. Of the 600 skaters expected to participate in U.S. Figure Skating’s adult championships in April, nearly 350 will be older than 40. The oldest member of the DC Edge Synchronized Skating Teams open group is Jacquie Tennant, 74, of Potomac, Md. In December she helped her team place third at a synchronized skating competition in Ann Arbor, Mich. Tennant, who used to skate with the show Holiday on Ice, said belonging to the team helps her relax and keep her muscles strong. “I’m thankful that I can be physically active enough to get the fullness out of life,” she said. Even if you have no intention of mastering a double toe-loop, figure skating offers tremendous health benefits and isn’t as hard as

you might think. Though, yes, you do have to be careful. Personal trainer Joan Pagano, author of “Strength Training Exercises for Women,” who returned to ice skating in her 40s, said skating strengthens leg muscles, including glutes, hip adductors and abductors, hamstrings, quads, calves and ankles. Skating also strengthens core muscles, which help maintain proper alignment of the torso, and improves balance. Because skating is a weight-bearing exercise, ice time helps keeps bones strong. I’ve gained bone mineral density in my hips over the past few years. And, women of a certain age may want to note, here’s the best part of enjoying a sport done in chilly temperatures: hot flashes. Exercise is supposed to ease symptoms of menopause, but even if you’re having a hot flash, you probably won’t feel it on the ice. Skating also burns significant calories, as many as 400 per hour. And skating is low-impact, “as long as you don’t fall down,” Pagano said. Those who skate outdoors get a nice dose of fresh air, and natural light delivers Vitamin D and can help fight seasonal depression. Working to master the elements of figure skating can boost confidence and self-esteem, said Jack Lesyk, director of the Ohio Center for Sport Psychology. Speaking from personal experience (Lesyk took up running at age 40 and went on to compete in marathons), he said pushing to achieve a personal best in any activity, at any age, means a lot, and it’s far better than sitting around doing nothing. Of course, figure skating does carry the risk of serious injury. Falls can come without warning, even for experienced skaters. In 2005, I broke both of my wrists while trying an ice dance. Seven months later, I was in a workshop, trying a difficult turn. I stepped on my blade, fell and broke my left wrist. Both times, I was back on the ice as soon as my casts came off.

Jeanne Erdmann, 60, laces up beside Bill Coalson at a skating center in Chesterfield, Mo. She skates three to four times a week and trains off the ice with weights, Pilates and dancing – anything to improve strength and flexibility. Heidi Prather, a professor of orthopedic surgery at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, sees adult recreational skaters and such performers as ice dancers. Of the skating-related ailments she treats, overuse injuries such as tendinitis in the knee, hip and ankle are more common than broken bones. Other reasons adult skaters seek help from an orthopedic specialist are ankle and foot disorders related to poorly fitting boots, hip pain, lowback pain, knee pain and bursitis, she said. The better shape you are in when you begin, the easier skating will be, said Kat Arbour, an expert in biomechanics who develops off-ice programs for figure skaters in Boston. Although most of Arbour’s clients are teens competing at national and international levels, she also works with recreational and competitive skaters in

the 40-plus set, and has even helped skaters in their 80s. “I worked with them off-ice on balance, strength, flexibility – all great things for their skating and for their quality of life off of the ice,” said Arbour, who recently developed an online training program. Arbour recommends starting with once-a-week sessions and said not to be surprised if your muscles are sore. As for equipment, forget about the double-runner blades. (“They feel really weird,” Arbour said.) Go with a known boot brand and choose a softer boot to get started. You can switch to a stiff boot once you start increasing your skill level. If you are worried about falls, wear kneepads, wrist guards and a helmet. Since breaking my wrists, I wear kneepads and wrist guards and attend an ice aerobics class (all of my classmates are older than

40) that involves a lot of fast skating and moving squats. I also work out off the ice. For me, the hardest part of turning 60 a few months ago was that I see these milestone birthdays as a time to look back on what I’ve failed to accomplish. With skating, I worried I’d never master the ice dances I need for the next level. Adult skaters go through rough patches, injuries and discouraging, maddening training sessions, but we don’t stay down long. To get past those spots, I think about why skating is my passion: the camaraderie; the mental boost after improving, even a little bit, a demanding move; and the fact that I’m much fitter and much stronger than I was 35 years ago. I hope to be like lawyer Cheryl Zeleznak, age 61, of Palos Park, who has been competing on the national level for more than 15 years. Zeleznak started skating in the 1980s. She told her in-

structor she wanted to jump and spin, and fly through the air, the faster the better. “The instructor looked at me like I was from outer space,” said Zeleznak, who indeed learned to spin and to jump well enough to perfect an axel and a double Salchow. In most freestyle categories, skaters are stratified by age, but in solo ice dance, skaters of all ages can sometimes compete against one another. A few years ago, Zeleznak placed second nationally in U.S. Figure Skating’s adult championships, the largest competition for adult amateurs. “When you step off of the ice after competing,” Zeleznak said, “it’s all about the skate, and no matter how well you did, you can say, ‘I did that.’ ” I know exactly how she feels.

Let bride be the guide Review your lens options for wedding guest list before cataract surgery Dear Abby: My daughter is being married soon, and I need some guidance about inviting my aunt and uncle to the wedding. They live about 30 miles from us. We moved to this area four years ago, and we’ve had them over for dinner once and invited them another time. They declined because they were going to be out of town. Abby, they didn’t reciprocate, and in fact, didn’t even invite us to their daughter’s wedding, which hurt us very much. I had always considered myself close to these relatives before we moved here, so their treatment of my family and me has been painful. My mother is telling me to turn the other cheek despite everything and invite them to my daughter’s wedding. My daughter doesn’t want them to attend and neither does my husband, but Mom is emphatic about inviting them “because they’re family.” I would appreciate your opinion on this, Abby, because I’m between a rock and a hard place, and my emotions are pulling me apart. – Betwixt And

Between Dear Betwixt: The bride’s wishes should prevail. Her happiness on her wedding day is more important than the feelings of relatives who

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips don’t bother with you, her and your family. I have always said one should never invite guests to a wedding hoping they won’t show up, because they usually do. Dear Abby: I have an older friend who is 70. She doesn’t have much money. She was having blood pressure problems, so I ordered a deluxe blood pressure machine for her that cost $160. It wasn’t a birthday gift; I was seriously concerned for her. I learned this week she “loaned” it to a friend. I wrote her a note and asked her nicely to please get it back because I didn’t buy it for her friend (who has plenty of money), but because I was worried about her health. She is not speaking to me now, and my blood pressure is going up by the minute because I’m so angry. Was I out of line or is she? – Hyper-Furious In

Arizona Dear Hyper-Furious: Relax. Breathe. What you did was a beautiful and generous gesture, but the blood pressure machine was a gift. Once a gift is given, it belongs to the recipient to do with as she (or he) wishes. For you to tell her to ask for it back

may have been well-intentioned, but it was the wrong thing to do. Dear Abby: I’m an average 17-year-old guy. I love basketball, football and girls. The problem is I’m a player, and girls say I “use” them. I’m not ready to settle down, and I end up hurting girls and breaking many hearts. How can I cure my player habits and heal some of the hearts I’ve broken? –

Tired Of Playing Dear Tired Of Playing: Apologize to any young woman you have misled. Then ask yourself, “How would I feel if I had been treated this way?” If you practice the golden rule – “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” – it will serve you well in most situations. If everyone did this, we could change the name of our planet from Earth to Paradise, and wouldn’t that be heavenly?

Confidential To Stuck In Dullsville: Because you’re convinced your job is a dead end, start sending out resumes.

Dear Dr. K: I’m having cataract surgery in a few weeks. There are so many options for replacement lenses. Which one should I choose? Dear Reader: I can’t tell you which you should choose, since I don’t know the specifics of your cataract. But I can suggest how you should think about several options that your ophthalmologist is likely to discuss with you. First, the basics. A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. Over time, it can cause a disabling loss of vision. Surgical removal of the clouded lens is the only effective cure for a cataract. In most cases, the surgeon replaces the clouded lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). As you noted, there are several options for replacement lenses. The most popular are monofocal IOLs. These lenses are designed to focus at one set distance: far, intermediate or near. (On my website, www.askdoctork.com, I’ve put a figure that illustrates these “zones of vision.”) Standard monofocal IOLs lack the ability to accommodate. That’s the ability to change focus from near to far and back again.

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff Many people choose a monofocal IOL that allows for clear distance vision after cataract surgery. Other people choose a lens that’s good for reading. Still others choose a lens that focuses about 18 to 36 inches away because they spend a lot of time at a computer, and that’s about how far away the screen is from their eyes. If, like most people, you choose a lens that’s good for distance vision, you probably will need to use reading glasses. And vice versa if you choose a lens that’s good for close vision. If you need cataract surgery on both eyes, and choose monofocal IOLs but hope to be less dependent on glasses, consider a technique called monovision. Monovision involves implanting an IOL for near vision in one eye and an IOL for far vision in the other eye. For many years I did this – but with contact lenses, not IOLs (I didn’t have cataracts then). It worked fine for me. Many people find the ad-

justment to monovision quite challenging, if not impossible. That’s because reducing your binocular vision (your ability to use both eyes together) changes your depth perception. If you are considering monovision, try it out with contact lenses before your cataract surgery. Monovision is not an ideal option if you require crisp, detailed vision. One approach is to forgo traditional monofocal IOLs. Instead, consider specialized, non-monofocal IOLs. There are several options in this category. For example, accommodating IOLs allow you to change focus between middle and distance vision, but they aren’t as reliable for near vision. Another option, multifocal IOLs, is similar to bifocals or progressive eyeglasses. These lenses include different areas designed for distance, intermediate and near vision. Just as people with progressive eyeglasses require just one pair of glasses for seeing things at all distances, the same is true with multifocal IOLs. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at www.askdoctork.com or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

Ambrose Bierce deined a dentist as a prestidigitator who, while putting metal in one’s mouth, pulls coins out of one’s pockets. A bridge player also wants it both ways: Heads I make my contract, tails you fail in yours. In this deal, South is in four spades. West cashes his two top diamonds, then shifts to the club 10. How should declarer continue? This is one auction that always mystiies less experienced players. By an unpassed hand, after partner’s takeout double and responder’s pass, if advancer (the doubler’s partner) makes a simple suit-bid, it shows some 0-8 points; a jump in a suit is approximately 9-11; and a cue-bid of the opener’s suit indicates 12 points or more. After South’s cue-bid, the auction turns to natural. Declarer’s only problem is in the trump suit. He must avoid two losers. In this case, the bidding should help him, but the right play is the same, even if during the auction the opponents gave excellent impersonations of Trappist

monks. If South starts with a inesse of his queen, West wins with his king, and declarer has a nasty guess on the second round. Should he inesse East for the jack or play for West to have started with king-jackdoubleton? Instead, South should irst cash his spade ace. When the king drops, he can bring home an overtrick. But even if the ace collects only the ive and six, declarer can cross to dummy and lead a spade toward his queen. He has no guess to make.
