Landlord facing 3 lawsuits Tenants in Woodstock allege poor conditions By SHAWN SHINNEMAN

Dan Brummitt of McHenry waits Wednesday inside the Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital Immediate Care Center for his consultation to begin the process of applying for health insurance. March 31 is the last day to begin the enrollment process for the Affordable Care Act, with a limited amount of time to finish enrollment for coverage that would take effect May 1.

Deadline extended for those who have begun process Pastor Zina Jacque, pictured Friday at the Community Church of Barrington, will start saving over $700 on May 1, when her health care coverage begins with her new policy bought under the Affordable Care Act.



or years, Pastor Zina Jacque did everything she could to avoid buying insurance through her church. But after being dropped from her husband’s Blue Cross Blue Shield plan following a knee and hip replacement and going uninsured for about 18 months, she begrudgingly signed up for a plan with her Community Church of Barrington, which has premiums of more than $1,300 a month, she said. And after being told the church was going to end that program altogether in 2014, Jacque decided to see what options were available through the health insurance marketplace under the Affordable Care Act. Last week, she met with a health care navigator in McHenry who walked her through the gov website, ultimately finding Jacque a plan that costs $740 a month. “I have a car that has 185,000 miles. I finally have the ability to purchase a new one,” Jacque said. “My contributions to community agencies have been severely

WOODSTOCK – The landlord called out during a public outcry for tenant rights now faces three separate lawsuits. A fourth, between Advantage Plus Property Management and McHenry County resident Scott Sharp, was dismissed Thursday after the two sides came to a non-monetary agreement, said Dominic Buttitta, the attorney for Sharp and three others who’ve filed suit against the Woodstock-based landlord. “No one should be a victim in their own home,” said Buttitta, a former McHenry County assistant state’s attorney whose private practice is based in Barrington. “We’re advocating for the victims of Woodstock, of McHenry County, in the landlord-tenant area.” Poor rental conditions in some properties was slingshotted into public view at a September Woodstock City Council meeting. There, about 20 people came in support of increased rights for tenants.

“Our goal is, number one, to have acknowledgment by Mary Brown and Advantage Plus of what they’ve been doing. And obviously compensation for harm that’s been done to [Bill Zieske and Denise Halverson].” – Dominic Buttitta, attorney for several people who’ve filed suit against a Woodstock-based landlord

The amazing ‘Black Hole of Prada’ I’ve always had a fascination with outer space. As a kid I even believed the moon was made of green cheese. That was pretty ridiculous. Everyone knows its composition is a mixture of iron, magnesium, silicon and just a pinch of ricotta. One astronomical concept that really interested me was the mysterious black hole. Simply explained, a black hole is a region of space that is so incredibly dense that not even light can escape from the surface. Anything that goes into a black hole can never come back out again. It’s kind of like searching for an exit at IKEA, but without all the quantum mechanics stuff. Instead of wave-particle dark matter, you’re schlepping around Lerberg storage shelves. But an earthly equivalent of a black hole has to be something deeper, something darker, something more bottomless than a Swedish eco-friendly interior design retailer. Where would I come up with an appropriate analogy? All it took was a simple telephone call. You see, I was sitting at home


JUST HUMOR ME Michael Penkava when I heard our cellphone ring. Thinking it might be my editor calling with another brilliant idea for a column, I raced into the kitchen toward the direction of the ringtone (Gordon Lightfoot’s “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald”). I quickly traced the sound to the interior of my wife’s purse and frantically rummaged though its multiple compartments, hoping to locate it before it gave up on me. But, like a big ship floundering in the gales of November on a lake they called “Gitche Gumee,” all was lost. I had missed my editor’s call. But that’s exactly when I discovered the terrestrial counterpart of an interstellar black hole: My wife’s purse! Think of it: Is there anything deeper, darker or more bottomless than a woman’s purse? I swear they

can pull anything outta there! Need a Band-Aid? No problem. Got to clip a nail? Here you go. Lose a button? Needle and thread. Need to tighten the lug nuts on a car tire? Check out the 32-piece socket set. Metric and standard. OK, I may be exaggerating a bit, but I am continually impressed by what my wife has in her purse. I mean, she’s no David Copperfield, but it wouldn’t surprise me if I asked her for the Statue of Liberty and she started to reach inside. There is, however, another quality of a black hole that is replicated by a woman’s purse. Scientists tell us that once a black hole has formed, it can continue to grow by absorbing additional matter. In other words, it starts to fill with more and more intergalactic stuff. Correspondingly, the wifely purse undergoes a natural growth process as well. It is a fact that if you compare the girth of a purse at the moment of purchase with its breadth after, let’s say, six months, there is clearly a noticeable swelling. This may explain

the presence of the said-mentioned socket set as well as the not previously mentioned but readily accessible Ace Hardware electric hedge clippers. Einstein may have been able to decipher time and space, but I betcha he was clueless when it came to unraveling the mysteries of his wife’s handbag. The speed of light was nothing compared to the profundity of a woman’s mobile accessory management repository. So, husbands, respect the purse. Compared to it, your wallet is a just a baggie covered in cowhide. Just be happy that when you have the sudden need for an air compressor or a 5-iron or an autographed Patrick Kane jersey, your wife’s “Black Hole of Prada” will always be there.

Study: Fewer heart problems in married people

The ASSOCIATED PRESS Love can sometimes break a heart, but marriage seems to do it a lot of good. A study of more than 3.5 million Americans finds that married people are less likely than singles, divorced or widowed folks to suffer any type of heart or blood vessel problem. This was true at any age, for women as well as for men, and regardless of other heart disease risk factors they had such as high cholesterol or diabetes, researchers found. “It might be that if someone is married, they have a spouse

Researchers used health questionnaires that people filled out when they sought various types of tests in community settings around the country from an Ohio company, Life Line Screening Inc. The study authors have no financial ties to the company and are not endorsing this type of screening, Berger said. Life Line gave its data to the Society of Vascular Surgery and New York University to help promote research.

The results are from people who got screenings from 2003 through 2008. Their average age was 64, nearly two-thirds were female and 80 percent were white. The study found: • Married people had a 5 percent lower risk of any cardiovascular disease compared to single people. Widowed people had a 3 percent greater risk of it and divorced people, a 5 percent greater risk, compared to married folks. • Marriage seemed to do the most good for those under age 50; they had a 12 percent lower risk of heart-related disease than single people their age.

Quinn’s housing refund proposal draws scrutiny By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press

AP file photo

Yuvania Maldonado, an in-person counselor for President Obama’s new health care law, speaks Feb. 3 with taxi driver Mohammad Chaudri in Chicago. With the deadline for health insurance sign-ups just days away, Illinois officials are planning late-night enrollment events in the Chicago area, Mattoon and Rockford.

Midnight insurance sign-up events planned around state The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – With the final deadline for health insurance sign-ups just days away, Illinois officials are planning late-night enrollment events at hospitals, a library and at Ann Sather, a popular Chicago restaurant known for Swedish pancakes. Enrollment counselors will help people sign up until midnight at events in the Chicago area, Mattoon and Rockford on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. At a call center in Chicago, operators will answer questions during those last three days from all around the state until midnight. Meanwhile, a federal call center is open 24 hours a day. The scramble to reach procrastinators – including a “last call” public service announcement from President Barack Obama – may push the president’s home state to a federal goal of 143,000 enrollees

for 2014 health coverage, or it may not. That won’t be known until mid-April when the Obama administration is expected to release figures for first-year enrollment under the Affordable Care Act. Even then, it may not be clear how many Illinois residents paid their first monthly premiums and were actually covered. For now, Illinois officials are optimistic – and busy. They say they’re on track to meet the goal. “We’re making sure Illinois consumers have every single opportunity to enroll before the deadline,” said Jennifer Koehler, executive director of Get Covered Illinois, the state’s online insurance marketplace. On Monday, the Illinois marketplace help desk received 7,647 calls, the highest one-day volume ever, she said. Koehler said she expects young adults to be the toughest holdouts. So far, about one in four Illinois enrollees

has been in the 18- to 34-yearold age group. “We’ve really ramped up our messaging to that demographic, making sure they’re aware of the free help available across the state,” Koehler said. Meeting the deadline means avoiding financial penalties on 2014 federal taxes. After Monday’s deadline, only people with limited special circumstances, such as a divorce or a move to a new state, and low-income people who qualify for Medicaid will be able to get coverage that meets the federal law’s requirements. People without insurance can be fined either 1 percent of their income or $95, whichever is greater, when they file their 2014 federal taxes. The White House has said it won’t push back the deadline to sign up for coverage, but if someone has already started an application, they will get some extra time to finish it.

r o f

CHICAGO – Illinois homeowners could get $500 checks this year under a provision of Gov. Pat Quinn’s state budget he claims will ease the burden of an unfair property tax system. However, the refund plan also comes as the Chicago Democrat wants to make Illinois’ temporary income tax increase permanent in the same proposed budget and he faces a fierce re-election challenge from Republican businessman Bruce Rauner. The plan has come under scrutiny from Republicans, who say Quinn hasn’t provided enough specifics and should be focused on cutting costs, and some homeowners who say they’ll lose money. Still, Quinn says most homeowners will benefit from what he’s deemed a historic property tax relief plan. “It’s fair, it’s substantial,” he said this week in Chicago. “It is guaranteed and permanent.” Here’s a closer look at Quinn’s plan:

THE REFUND: Currently, Illinois homeowners get a tax credit, which is 5 percent of property taxes paid. About 2.3 million Illinois tax filers requested the credit in 2012

and it cost the state about $563 million in lost revenue, according to the Illinois Department of Revenue. The newly proposed refund of $500 would replace the credit, and homeowners would get the same amount regardless of where they live or how much they pay in property taxes. If lawmakers in the Democrat-controlled House and Senate approve the plan soon, state officials hope to be able to issue checks by as early as this summer. The idea is to ease the burden of property tax bills later in the year. This year, homeowners would likely have to apply for the refund, but the process could change in the future.

TIMING: The idea has raised eyebrows, particularly with checks possibly arriving ahead of the November election. Quinn is locked in what’s anticipated to be one of the most difficult and expensive campaigns nationwide. Rauner, who’s seeking public office for the first time, claims the refund is easing the tough-to-swallow news of extending the income tax increase. Lawmakers approved a roughly 67 percent increase in 2011 to help fill a budget hole. When

WHO BENEFITS? The majority of Illinois homeowners – more than 90 percent – would get more money as the median property tax credit is $204, according to Quinn. His administration is billing the idea as the “most significant property tax relief in Illinois history.” It would cost the state about $1.3 billion. That means the average homeowner would benefit and, possibly, the housing market in general.

8STATE BRIEF Union: Engineer worked 69 hours before crash CHICAGO – A union for Chicago Transit Authority drivers says the operator of the train that crashed at O’Hare International Airport worked 69 hours in the seven days before the accident. Amalgamated Transit Union

Local 308 President Robert Kelly said Friday that the operator’s call-in status without a consistent work shift caused her to work “strange” hours, which was a factor in the crash. The CTA disputed the number of hours the operator worked, putting it at 55 hours. Kelly says the operator is

“torn to pieces” over the crash. He says the union will fight the CTA if it seeks to fire her. A federal investigator is looking into Monday’s crash, which injured 32 passengers. The investigator says the operator acknowledged she dozed off before the accident.

it starts to roll back in January, there’ll be a $1.6 billion revenue dip that Quinn says will lead to deep cuts. Quinn wants to “maintain” current income tax rates to keep from cutting school funds and says his property tax plan will help everyday people, one of his re-election themes. He’s seeking a second full term. But Rauner, a Winnetka venture capitalist, disagrees. “In an effort to soften the blow of his broken promise to keep the income tax hike temporary, Pat Quinn tore a page from his old failed playbook by proposing a $500 property tax rebate for homeowners, but even that promise is already being exposed as insufficient,” Rauner’s campaign said in a statement.

Officials losing hope of finding slide survivors The ASSOCIATED PRESS ARLINGTON, Wash. – Washington state officials all but abandoned hope Friday of finding survivors under tons of twisted, sodden earth as a community waited in anguish to learn the full scope of what is already one of the most devastating landslides in U.S. history. The grueling process of locating, extracting and identifying human remains from the unstable debris covering the community of Oso northeast of Seattle has slowed the release of information by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office to a trickle. Crews may be finding more remains amid the destruction, but the official death toll will remain at 17 until medical examiners can complete the “very, very challenging” task of identifying the bodies, said

Snohomish County Executive Director Gary Haakenson. Authorities have located at least eight other bodies in addition to the 17, and they previously said they expect the number of fatalities from last Saturday’s mudslide to rise substantially. Ninety people were listed as missing, but hope for them began fading by midweek when they had not checked in with friends or relatives, and no one had emerged from the pile alive. “We always want to hold out hope, but I think at some point we have to expect the worst,” Haaksenson said. Leslie Zylstra said everybody in town knows someone who died, and the village was coming to grips with the fact that many of the missing may remain entombed in the debris. “The people know there’s

no way anybody could have survived,” said Zylstra, who used to work in an Arlington hardware store. “They just want to have their loved ones, to bury their loved ones.” Haakenson described for the first time Friday the difficulty of the searchers’ task. When a body is found, the spot is marked for a helicopter pickup. That only happens when the helicopters are able to fly in the wind and rain that has pummeled the search area. The victim is then placed in a truck in a holding area. At the end of the day, all the recovered victims are transported to the medical examiner’s office about 20 miles away in Everett. “Autopsies are performed, the process of identification takes place – if possible,” Haakenson said. “The identification process has been very, very challenging.”

Searchers stand Friday near the site of a deadly mudslide in Oso, Wash. Besides the 25 bodies already found, dozens more people could be buried in the debris pile left from the mudslide nearly one week ago. Wind and rain has pummeled the search area, complicating recovery efforts.

President meets with Saudi king The ASSOCIATED PRESS RIYADH, Saudi Arabia – The United States is considering allowing shipments of portable air defense systems to Syrian rebels, a U.S. official said Friday, as President Barack Obama sought to reassure Saudi Arabia’s king that the U.S. is not taking too soft a stance in Syria and other Mideast conflicts. The president and King Abdullah met for more than two hours at the aging monarch’s desert oasis outside the capital city of Riyadh. Obama advisers said the two leaders spoke frankly about their differences on key issues, with the president assuring the king that he remains committed to the Gulf region’s security. Saudi officials have grown particularly concerned about what they see as Obama’s tepid response to the Syrian civil war and have pressed the U.S. to allow them to play a direct role in sending the rebels the air defense systems commonly known as manpads. While administration officials have previously ruled out that option, a senior official said it was being considered, in part because the U.S. has been able to develop deeper relationships

President Barack Obama meets Friday with Saudi King Abdullah at Rawdat Khuraim, Saudi Arabia. with the Syrian opposition over the past year. The official said no final decision had been made and the president might ultimately decide against the proposal. One of Obama’s top concerns continues to be whether the weaponry would fall into the wrong hands, according to the official, who was not authorized to discuss internal deliberations by name and commented only on condition of anonymity. The official cast the approach as less of a sudden change in position and more an indication of how the U.S. has viewed the issue for some time.

A second senior official said there had been no change in the U.S. position on manpads, but did not specifically rule out the notion that the option was under consideration. Manpads are compact missile launchers with the range and explosive power to attack low-flying planes and helicopters. U.S. officials have estimated the Syrian government has thousands. The decades-long alliance between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia has been a pillar of security arrangements in the Middle East. But as U.S. troops have pulled out of Iraq and Afghanistan, the

kingdom’s royal family has become increasingly anxious about Obama’s positioning in the region. Tensions reached a high point last fall after Obama decided against launching a military strike on Syria, choosing instead to back a plan to strip Syrian President Bashar Assad of his chemical weapon stockpiles. U.S. officials say the relationship has improved since then, with both sides making an effort to more closely coordinate their efforts to halt the Syrian conflict. “We are in a better place today than we were seven months ago,” said Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser. Beyond Syria, one of the king’s biggest concerns has been the U.S.-led nuclear negotiations with Iran. The Saudis fear Iran’s nuclear program, object to Iran’s backing of the Assad government and see Tehran as having designs on oil fields in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. Officials said the nuclear negotiations were a primary topic of Friday’s meeting, with Obama assuring the king that the U.S. was not glossing over Tehran’s other provocations in order to get a final deal.

Nuke test cheating linked to flawed leadership The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – A basic contradiction lies at the root of an exam-cheating scandal that decimated the ranks of an Air Force nuclear missile group, investigators say: Commanders were demanding perfection in testing and ethics but also tacitly condoned rule-bending or even willfully ignored cheating. An Air Force investigation concluded that no commanders participated in or knew about the forms of cheating in which 91 missile officers

were implicated at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont. But nine commanders, representing nearly the entire operational chain of command in the 341st Missile Wing, were fired and the wing commander, Col. Robert Stanley, was allowed to resign. “From the perspective of a young company-grade officer looking up the chain of command, leadership has delivered conflicting messages” on integrity and test performance, the report said. Leaders pressured young officers to achieve high scores “while

tacitly condoning” acts that “take care of” crew members who might otherwise fall short of the expected perfect result, it said. This “blurs the line between acceptable help and unacceptable cheating,” it said. Malmstrom is home to one of three Air Force intercontinental ballistic missile wings, each responsible for 150 Minuteman 3 nuclear missiles. The other wings are the 90th at F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyo., and the 91st at Minot Air Force Base, N.D.

Beyond the investigation at Malmstrom, the Pentagon is undertaking two broader reviews of problems inside the ICBM force, including training failures, low morale and security lapses that The Associated Press documented over the past year. One of those reports is due in April, the other in June. The force of 450 Minuteman 3 missiles is primed to unleash nuclear devastation on a moment’s notice, capable of obliterating people and places halfway around the globe.

U.S. District Judge Joe Billy McDade also fined former St. Clair County Circuit Judge Michael Cook more than $75,583, which includes the U.S. government’s nearly $65,600 expected tab of Cook’s incarceration and his three years of post-prison supervised release.

Museum items won’t go to pay Iran judgment CHICAGO – Survivors of a 1997 terrorist bombing blamed partly on Iran can’t seize thousands of relics from U.S. museums to pay a $412 million judgment against the Iranian government, a federal judge in Chicago ruled Friday. The case targeting the Persian antiquities at the Field Museum of Natural History and the University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute was closely watched nationwide by other museum officials, who feared a ruling against the Chicago museums could set an alarming precedent that might put their own collections at risk.

Ill. House OKs measure to allow bobcat hunting SPRINGFIELD – Illinois lawmakers have advanced a proposal to allow bobcat hunting for the first time in more than 40 years. The Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises reports the Illinois House voted 91-20 Thursday in favor of the measure. It now goes to the Senate. Illinois banned hunting of the nocturnal animal in 1972. Bobcats were on the threatened species list from 1977 to 1999.

Passenger arrested with loaded gun at Ill. airport MOLINE – Authorities arrested a passenger trying to pass through security Thursday with a loaded handgun in his carry-on luggage at Quad City International Airport in western Illinois. The Transportation Security Administration announced Friday that one of its officers discovered the .380-caliber Walther PK handgun at a security checkpoint X-ray machine. The Quad-City Times reports that the gun was loaded with six rounds and one in the chamber.

8NATION BRIEFS Bombing suspect seeks records on brother BOSTON – Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s lawyers asked a judge on Friday to order federal prosecutors to turn over evidence related to his family as they try to build a case that his older brother was the “main instigator” behind the deadly attack. The defense team is seeking a host of records from prosecutors, including any evidence to support its claim the FBI had asked Tamerlan Tsarnaev to be an informant. In a court filing, Dzhokhar’s lawyers said they want records of all FBI contact with Tamerlan, based on information from the Tsarnaev family and unidentified other sources that the FBI asked Tamerlan to be an informant on the Chechen and Muslim community. The Boston FBI office declined to comment on the claims made in the court filing but cited a statement it released in October in which it said the Tsarnaev brothers were never sources for the FBI.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie pauses before answering a question Friday in Trenton, N.J., about the lane closures near the George Washington Bridge. Investigations led by federal authorities and New Jersey legislators are continuing to delve into the lane closures near the George Washington Bridge, even as Gov. Chris Christie’s own probe has concluded that he was not involved in the plot to block traffic.

Christie on push to shed scandal The ASSOCIATED PRESS TRENTON, N.J. – Republican Gov. Chris Christie has spent the past few days putting down traffic cones to separate himself from scandal. The usually garrulous governor and possible 2016 presidential contender had avoided news conferences and interviews for more than two months until Thursday, the day a report he commissioned cleared him of any involvement in the politically motivated plot to create huge traffic jams at the George Washington Bridge last year. With investigations by federal prosecutors and state lawmakers looming, Christie also submitted to an interview Thursday with Diane Sawyer on ABC and another set to air Friday night on Fox News. And a vintage, defiant Christie re-emerged Friday at a Statehouse news conference in which he cracked jokes, jousted with reporters and acknowledged the toll of the

scrutiny. “There is no question this shakes your confidence,” he said. “If it doesn’t, you’re arrogant.” Christie defended the integrity of the taxpayer-funded report clearing him. It was produced by lawyers chosen by his office. He boldly laid down a solid double line in the road. “I think the report will stand the test of time,” he said, “and it will be tested by the other investigations that are going on.” Democrats have blasted the findings as a whitewash and an incomplete piece of work, noting that the two Christie allies accused of engineering the traffic jams by ordering lane closings refused to cooperate with the lawyers. But Christie said the lawyers would not “give away their reputations to do some kind of slipshod job for me.” A lawyer for one of the aides who refused to be interviewed, former deputy chief of

staff Bridget Kelly, cast doubt on the credibility of the governor’s report, which concludes Kelly and a co-conspirator acted alone in shutting down traffic. “The only credible investigation into the lane closings is being conducted by the U.S. attorney’s office,” Kelly lawyer Michael Critchley said. Christie fired Kelly in January after learning she set the traffic scheme in motion with the message, “time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.” Christie termed the lane closings “inexplicably stupid.” The report cast Kelly in unflattering personal terms. On Friday, Critchley said the attempt to impugn Kelly’s credibility is unsurprising because she may have evidence that contradicts the report’s conclusion that no one else in Christie’s office knew of the plot in advance. The report portrayed the governor as a careful yet emotional leader who looked into the eyes of his top staffers

as he asked what they knew about the lane closings. It was deeply critical of Kelly and a former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official suspected of orchestrating the gridlock to punish a Democratic mayor who didn’t endorse Christie for re-election. Republicans beyond New Jersey remain uncertain about Christie’s ability to recover politically ahead of the 2016 White House contest. But Hogan Gidley, a veteran GOP operative, said: “It’s clearly been a good week for Chris Christie.” Ed Borden, a Democrat and former New Jersey prosecutor who has been hired to do independent reports for some government entities, said he found the report on the scandal to be thorough but was troubled by the tone. “It does not come off sounding like an even-handed weighing of evidence but rather as a brief on behalf of the governor,” he said.

Jeremiah Denton, POW and ex-senator, dies Prisoner of war Jeremiah Denton declared his loyalty to the U.S. government during a 1966 interview for what was supposed to be a propaganda film. But his enraged captors missed his more covert message: “T-O-R-T-U-R-E,” blinked into the camera in Morse code, a dispatch that would alert the U.S. military to the conditions he endured. Denton, who would survive 7½ years confined in a tiny, stinking, windowless cell at the infamous “Hanoi Hilton” and other camps before his release in 1973, died of heart problems Friday in Virginia Beach, Va., at age 89, his grandson Edward Denton said. The elder Denton later became the first Republican from Alabama elected to the U.S. Senate since Reconstruction.

Security boss at 1 World Trade Center resigns NEW YORK – A spokesman for the New York City company that manages 1 World Trade Center says the building’s head of security has resigned. The Durst Organization’s Jordan Barowitz confirms David Velazquez resigned Friday. The departure comes just days after the arrests of three skydiving enthusiasts who in September parachuted off the building, the nation’s tallest skyscraper. It comes about two weeks after authorities say a New Jersey teenager sneaked onto the site and climbed to the top of the 1,776-foot tower to take pictures. Barowitz said the

Earthquake shakes Los Angeles region LOS ANGELES – Authorities say a magnitude-5.1 earthquake has shaken the Los Angeles area. The U.S. Geological Survey originally estimated the quake to be a magnitude-5.3. It said the Friday quake struck at about 9:11 p.m. and was centered near Brea in Orange County – about 20 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles. About an hour earlier, a 3.6 quake hit nearby in the city of La Habra. There were no immediate reports of damage.

Property upkeep ordinance relies on complaint-based system • LANDLORD Continued from page A1 Several shared their stories of their landlord’s neglect for their property, from mold and standing water to broken appliances. The city eventually passed a property maintenance ordinance – a measure that officials said gave them another tool to stand up to abusive landlords, but one that

ultimately still runs on a complaint-based code enforcement system. Bill Zieske and Denise Halverson – a married couple who moved to Woodstock in 2013 – became de facto leaders of the tenant group, and were later served eviction papers in what they viewed as retaliation for making their issues public. The couple filed a 61page counterclaim. Advantage Plus and owner Mary Brown

withdrew the original complaint earlier this year. “Mr. Zieske’s lease ends on April 30, and because of everything involved in the case, we couldn’t get the eviction heard by then, so we withdrew it,” said Michael Poper, attorney for Advantage Plus. Zieske and Halverson are still pursuing compensation. Their counterclaim alleges neglect, consumer fraud, a breach of the lease and assault,

among many other claims. “Our goal is, number one, to have acknowledgment by Mary Brown and Advantage Plus of what they’ve been doing,” Buttitta said. “And obviously compensation for harm that’s been done to [Zieske and Halverson].” Sharp, who had a onemonth lease in an Advantage Plus-run Woodstock apartment before moving into another of the business’ rentals

in Marengo, had filed suit seeking deposit money he was owed from the one-month lease, Buttitta said. “I was just told, as his lawyer, to dismiss that case,” Buttitta said. “He’s moving out of that [Marengo] house and that lease is being terminated. ... It’s good for him because he’s out of a place that was going to have a lot of problems, that was already having problems.”

Buttitta has filed two other cases against Advantage Plus on behalf of Woodstock tenants. Both seek money owed from deposits, he said. Poper said the landlord denies owing any money. “Anyone has a right to file a lawsuit. That doesn’t necessarily mean they have a right to win the lawsuit or that they’re correct in filing it,” Poper said. “We intend to prove that Mary has not violated anything.” 815-455-4330

White House: 6 million people have signed up under ACA nationwide • INSURANCE Continued from page A1 Medicaid under the ACA, according to information provided by Get Covered Illinois. About 54 percent of those enrolled are women, and 24 percent are 18- to 34-yearolds, which is in line with the national average. Nationally, more than six million people have signed up for health insurance under the ACA, which exceeded the administration’s revised target but fell short of the initial goal of seven million, according to the Obama administration. McHenry County received a $500,000 federal grant to train employees and set up enrollment locations across the area. Nicholson said she is pleased with the 1,800 people who enrolled at one of the locations, adding the number doesn’t include those who enrolled online, likely making the number of people who signed up much higher. Last fall, the ACA was

Nicholson said although the initial website problems hurt health care enrollment, things picked up at the beginning of the year. “The system got resolved by January,” she said. “We’ve received 70 percent of our business since then. It was slow in the beginning, but it’s picked up a lot since then.” In fact, Nicholson said the Affordable Care Act’s

IDNR initially defended House’s reimbursements • REPAY Continued from page A1 such reimbursement, according to an AP review of state records. It’s another blemish for Natural Resources officials, who initially defended the reimbursements as proper, after a series of recent public relations troubles: a deputy director who attended fishing tournaments while on sick leave and two mining regulators who accepted campaign contributions from a coalmine operator. Chris Young, spokesman for IDNR Director Marc Miller, initially said the director would not require House, who makes $75,000 annually, to repay the money because it was not his error. But Miller changed his mind this week and asked for reimbursement, ten days after the agency acknowledged the error. Young didn’t know if there are other administrators who might be in the same situation as House, whose main responsibility since joining IDNR in September 2010 is overseeing state parks. “The IDNR believed it was properly interpreting the travel rules ...” Young said in

a prepared statement. “Going forward, IDNR will provide training for all personnel who review travel requests, update its employee handbook and strengthen overall travel policies within the agency.” House lives in Benton, in southern Illinois, and his officially designated headquarters is 165 miles away in Springfield. Rules set by the governor’s travel control board specify that on any trip in which a traveler goes to or through headquarters, that person must subtract any commuting mileage. An AP review of travel records showed 78 instances in which House traveled between Benton and Springfield with a side trip in between – typically Sparta, home of IDNR’s World Shooting and Recreational Complex. On those trips, only the side mileage to Sparta, about 20 miles, could be reimbursed, but House received the full 185 miles. House served as interim director of the Sparta shooting complex from September 2011 to June 2013, Young said. In total, House was paid $8,700 for 15,700 miles, when he was only eligible for $1,500 for 2,800 miles, according to the AP review.

early high-profile blunders could have actually benefited enrollment overall. As it garnered more and more media attention, the calls asking about coverage become more frequent, she said. “The attention it got in October in the national media got it on people’s radar,” she said. “They wanted to hear more about it. The negative media attention turned into a boom for us.” One of the best performing health care navigator sites in the county was a team led by Judy Linarez, who enrolled people in McHenry and Crystal Lake locations. Linarez’s team was the top performing enrollment site in the state last week, Nicholson said. “There’s been some bumps in the road with the website,” Linarez said. “But everything since then has been going good.” Linarez said most of the people she has served, like Jacque, have saved over half of what they were paying through private insurance. “I’ve gotten a lot of hugs since October,” she said.

Resolve differences at MCC The Northwest Herald Editorial Board offers this week’s thumbs up and thumbs down: Thumbs down: To the labor situation at McHenry County College. The negotiation process between instructors and the college has lasted roughly 19 months, with no sign of a settlement. Full-time faculty members filed a letter of intent to strike Thursday, and trustees were asked to join negotiations. Cooler heads need to prevail to end this marathon of increasingly frustrated talks before a strike happens. Thumbs up: To Woodstock resident Lou Ness for planning a 750-mile walk to Washington, D.C., to raise awareness for poverty. Ness was fired in 2004 from Turning Point after allegations she mismanaged funds but has decided to keep a positive attitude and do what she can. She now is the executive director of Rockfordbased Shelter Care. She is planning to stay at churches where she can and walk 15 miles per day en route to her destination. Thumbs down: To the Fox River Grove Village Board, for voting 4-2 against a plan for a proposed 120-foot cell tower at the Norge Ski Jump. AT&T, which wants to build the tower but will share it with other service providers, said the tower is needed to keep up with increased demand of data and voice use on cellphones. But many residents complained that a new tower would negatively affect property values, and so the board caved. NIMBYism all over again. Thumbs up: To Illinois for leading the nation in LEED-certified buildings. The LEED acronym stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. LEED certificates are awarded to private and public buildings that use recycled materials, are located on sustainable sites, and are energy and water efficient. There are 14 LEED-certified buildings in McHenry County. Environmentally friendly development is a trend we encourage. Thumbs up: To Lukas Bettich, a Crystal Lake sixth-grader at Richard Bernotas Middle School who is one of only 100 fourth- through eighthgraders in Illinois selected by the National Geographic Society for the final round of the 2014 Illinois State Geographic Bee. The state final is April 4. The winner receives a trip to Washington for the National Geographic Bee final, where a $50,000 scholarship awaits the winner. Good luck, Lukas.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Bad job for McHenry To the Editor: From Feb. 26’s Northwest Herald: “When you look around McHenry, if all that you see are empty storefronts, then you don’t see what I see,” Mayor Sue Low said. Northwest Herald headline from March 18: “McHenry approves incentive program.” Mayor Low must be blind. Empty storefronts are all over. More in the 10 years she has been mayor. Now to get business to come back to the city, Low and the city want to give retailers a tax break. Get with it, Sue. Time to fess up and say you have done a bad job for the city of McHenry.

Welcome to Nottingham


Voters passing up chances to be heard A two-part tradition accompanies every spring election in Illinois. Part 1: County clerks predict low voter turnout. Part 2: Voters prove them right. It happened here again during the March 18 primary, which featured such important races as governor, Congress, the U.S. Senate, county sheriffs, judges, county board members and a host of referendums about taxes, school consolidation, fire protection, electric supply and alcohol sales. These races and ballot questions are not insignificant. Illinois has an unprecedented financial crisis on its hands, causing a backlog of unpaid bills, painful choices at public school districts statewide, cuts to state services and programs, unaddressed road and bridge repairs, and what many consider an unfriendly business climate for job creation. Dysfunction and partisan bickering in Congress haven’t escaped voters’ attention, either. As a result, Illinoisans have a lot to be worried about. So it stands to reason that they would have sprinted for the polls Tuesday to make their displeasure known. Instead, most of them forfeited their chance to have a say in which candidates get to move on to the November general election. Voter turnout in Sangamon County was 23 percent, a little better than County Clerk Joe Aiello’s prediction earlier in the day that fewer than one in five registered voters would cast a ballot. Montgomery County’s turnout was nearly 22 percent, and Morgan County’s was about 21.5 percent. Logan County had a 27 percent turnout. One bit of redeeming news is that Springfield-area voters showed more interest in the election than those in Chicago and Cook County, where turnout was just under 16 percent in the city and the county. The general election is Nov. 4. Illinoisans say they want better elected representatives and better outcomes. That only can happen if they hold themselves accountable first by getting to the polls on Election Day. (Springfield) State Journal Register

To the Editor: I’m remembering the story of Robin Hood as I read about the new tax being proposed in Springfield. Common misconception of this

story is that Robin Hood stole from the rich people to give to the poor people. The fact of the story is that Robin Hood stole from those who unjustly levied excessive taxes and confiscated private property when taxes were not paid. He fought against the tax collector, the Sheriff of Nottingham and those who levied the taxes, Prince John. He did not steal from those who produced and sold goods or services. Michael Madigan can be described as the Sheriff of Nottingham, and Gov. Pat Quinn as Prince John, or, if you like, vice versa. Here they go again saying the money will go to the schools. I’ve a bridge for sale for anyone who believes this. Hey, Illinois, welcome to Nottingham. David G. Stack Woodstock

representative Steve Reick is off to a really bad start. In two recent posts on his website, he claimed that his opponent’s position on changing Illinois’ Constitution to allow for the implementation of a progressive income tax is somehow unclear, substantiating this with a link to a primary election candidate survey to which his opponent did not even respond. This kind of spurious claim can only be called one thing: a lie. And the person making the claim is by definition a liar. Reick’s opponent, state Rep. Jack Franks, is not only on record as opposing a gradu-

ated income tax, but is the only Democrat in the entire House to have signed on as a co-sponsor of House Resolution 241 – legislation that specifically indicates opposition to this type of change to our state’s tax code. Mr. Reick is already attempting to resort to distortion and trickery. That is a really bad sign and should make us all very skeptical of any claims he makes and his candidacy in general. Rep. Franks has always shown himself to be an honest, diligent public servant. I won’t be fooled by Reick’s lies. Sharon Gustafson Woodstock

Hobby Lobby doesn’t have religious rights WASHINGTON – The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments Tuesday in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. Let’s concentrate for a moment on the “Inc.” part. Hobby Lobby is a for-profit corporation selling arts and crafts. It is asking the court to declare that its religious beliefs are violated by the Affordable Care Act’s mandate that health care insurance provided by employers include contraception. Founder David Green opposes the mandate with a vengeance. If the court finds in his favor, Hobby Lobby would be exempted from providing some contraception coverage – an exemption already carved out for actual churches, religiously affiliated hospitals and genuine religious organizations. If it doesn’t, we will find out what Green’s (or is it Hobby Lobby’s?) deeply held conviction is worth to him (or it). Green estimates it would cost his company $1.3 million a day. The idea that a corporation can have religious beliefs seems ludicrous on its face, but the nose-in-the-tent ruling that gives this preposterous argument some weight was Citizens United v. FEC in 2010, which gave freespeech rights to corporations. Hobby would take that a step further: If Green has freedom of religion, so does his business. Like him, it worships, sins, is forgiven, reads the Bible and, if it all works out, is going to

VIEWS Margaret Carlson heaven. If there is a heaven, I can see Green there (along with Ben and Jerry). On earth, Green got the blessing of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for his position. In the opinion of Judge Timothy M. Tymkovich, Hobby Lobby isn’t just selling origami kits – it’s selling something much more profound. “A religious individual may enter the for-profit realm intending to demonstrate to the marketplace that a corporation can succeed financially while adhering to religious values,” he wrote. “As a court, we do not see how we can distinguish this form of evangelism from any other.” That would mean that Hobby Lobby is like the Jehovah’s Witnesses, only with stores. There’s no doubting the sincerity of Green’s religious beliefs. “If you have anything or if I have anything, it’s because it’s been given to us by our Creator,” Green told Forbes magazine in 2012. The magazine estimates he has donated $500 million to evangelical churches and Christian universities. He wants to open a museum devoted to the Bible. He believes in social justice, paying


his employees more than the minimum wage. There’s no end to what corporations could do – or rather, not do – in the guise of religion. In Arizona, bakers and photographers could have refused to make cakes or take pictures of same-sex couples because the practice offended their religious beliefs (Gov. Jan Brewer wisely vetoed the bill). What else could businesses refuse to do in the name of freedom of religion? Hire divorced people, maybe, or atheists, or even pay the minimum wage. After all, didn’t Jesus say something once about how hard it was for a rich man to get into heaven? Among those who see the danger in this line of reasoning is Justice Antonin Scalia. Fifteen years ago, the court heard a case involving two employees of a drug rehabilitation program who were fired for using peyote. When they were denied unemployment compensation, they sued: They used the peyote as part of a religious ceremony at their American Indian church, they said, so the denial violated their First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion. Scalia was having none of it. Writing for the majority, he said that a ruling in favor of the two employees would “open the prospect of constitutionally required religious exemptions from civic obligations of almost every conceivable kind – rang-

ing from compulsory military service, to the payment of taxes, to health and safety regulation such as manslaughter and child neglect laws, compulsory vaccination laws, drug laws, and traffic laws.” Loath to be seen as antireligion, Congress went to work before the ink was dry on Scalia’s opinion. Three years after the decision, it passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which President Bill Clinton duly signed. The law said the government “shall not substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion even if the burden results from a rule of general applicability.” In its brief and in oral arguments, Hobby Lobby asserts that the HHS mandate is “one of the most straightforward violations” of the law the court is ever likely to see. America was founded on the separation of church and state, which used to be sacrosanct but increasingly isn’t. Where one side sees a retail chain selling scrapbooking kits, many more – at least judging by the number of amicus briefs – see a religious institution akin to a church. It isn’t, of course, nor is David Green some kind of priest. Once upon a time, conservatives such as Antonin Scalia could be counted on to say so. We’ll know in a few months whether they still are. • Margaret Carlson is a Bloomberg View columnist.

HEROES SOUGHT FOR 911 AWARD With April being 911 education month, the Illinois chapter of the National Emergency Number Association and the Illinois Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials have created an award program for people who became heroes by using 911. The purpose of the program is to reward and recognize people who properly used 911 during the course of an emergency. Under the criteria of the award, the heroic act must be ongoing or have taken place in 2013. If the caller is a child, the 911 call must have been self-initiated by the child and/or the child followed pre-arrival instructions or performed some other heroic act. The person’s heroic act must have saved a life, significantly reduced property loss, or helped lead to the apprehension of a criminal or stopped a crime. As part of the nomination form, people have to summarize the incident and the circumstances and actions that qualify the nominee for the award. Nominators also have to say why they think the nominee should be honored and why the person is deserving. Nomination forms are due by April 7 to be considered for the award, according to a news release. To nominate someone, go to

Harvard man found guilty Faces prison after being convicted of drugs, weapons charges By CHELSEA McDOUGALL WOODSTOCK – A Harvard man faces serious prison time after a judge found him guilty of all the drugs and weapons charges against him. Cesar G. Rojas-Figueroa

could be sentenced to between nine and 40 years for possessing more than 100 grams of cocaine and six to 30 years on a weapons charge. He also was convicted on lesser charges of possessing marijuana and domestic battery. He will be sentenced May 9.

At a bench trial before McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather earlier this month, Harvard police officers said they recovered 101.3 grams of cocaine and 38.5 grams of marijuana at the home the 28-year-old shared with his girlfriend. Police responded Sept. 8,

2013, to their 409 Prairie St. home for a report of a domestic battery. Rojas-Figueroa later was arrested at his parents’ house across town. A checkbook and another piece of mail with his parents’ address were found at the home where the drugs were recov-

ered. Defense attorney Donna Rotunno argued that Rojas-Figueroa didn’t have ties to the Prairie Street home. Assistant State’s Attorney John Gibbons rejected that defense, calling it “totally unrealistic.”

Crystal Lake eighth-graders headed to Spain for competition By JEFF ENGELHARDT CRYSTAL LAKE – All a group of six Crystal Lake girls needed to get to Spain was their brains. Collectively known as Fruit Salad, the six Lundahl Middle School eighth-graders are one of only eight FIRST LEGO League teams out of 14,000 in the United States and Canada to be invited to the Open European Championship in Pamplona, Spain, at the end of May. As competitors in the FIRST LEGO League, the girls had to build a robot out of nothing but LEGOs and program it to navigate a course and move objects all without the use of a controller. All directions are programmed into the robot be-

fore sending it off to see how efficiently it navigates the course and obstacles.

The team earned first place in its regional competition and the second-place champion’s award in

the northern Illinois state tournament in February, earning them a rare place in the international competition. FIRST LEGO League is an international program for youths ages 8 to 14 that aims to increase interest in science, technology, math and engineering and teach employment and life skills. “We were just hoping to make it to state so we were really excited,” said team member Audrey Godsell. “It will be great to meet teams from around the world.” Godsell is joined by Theresa Grivas, Sidney Dickinson, Caroline Rausch, Kristen Anderson and Julie Freund on the team that has been together for two years.

data rates apply. The Illinois Department of Public Health is warning residents of an illegally manufactured cheese that has resulted in around 100 cases of salmonella in the state. Thirteen counties, including McHenry County, have reported cases to the public health department with the same strain of salmonella believed to be associated with an illegally produced Mexican-style cheese. “We’re concerned that people who consume this manufactured cheese may become sick from salmonella,” Illinois Department of Public Health Director LaMar Has-

brouck said in a news release. “It is important for you to check the labeling to make sure the product was made by a licensed dairy manufacture – even if you purchased the cheese from a grocery store. If you become ill after eating Mexicanstyle cheese, contact your health care provider and your local health department.” Many of those affected by the cheese obtained it from worksites, street vendors or from relatives and friends, the news release said. The cheese is not labeled and is often wrapped in aluminum foil.

Family forms group to lose weight Group meets regularly for exercise, weigh-ins while maintaining diets The ASSOCIATED PRESS BELVIDERE – One son couldn’t go to baseball games because of his weight and another couldn’t realize his dream of becoming a sworn law enforcer. Obesity was getting the best of Sharon Thiltgen’s family when they came together last fall to lose weight. “We just got tired of being fat,” said the 65-year-old mother of five and grandmother of 14. She blames health problems and personal eating habits for her own weight, which was 223 pounds in September when she convinced her family to form Seddy’s Shredders. They met regularly to weigh in and exercise. They also changed their diets to include more chicken, veggies and fruits. Between Sept. 7 and Feb. 15, the group of eight members, including Thiltgen, lost a total of 234 pounds. Seddy’s Shedders now has its own Facebook page, and members have been reuniting

“Once you’re used to eating that kind of food, it’s hard to say no to it. However, I’m not getting any younger. I have to do it now or else I’m not going to do it.” Bob Shondel Attempting to lose weight to take physical agility test to become a sheriff’s deputy at 10 a.m. Saturday in the basement of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 217 E. Hurlbut Ave., to find inspiration in each other’s weight-loss journeys. Thiltgen’s sons – Fred Shondel, 43, and Bob Shondel, 37 – named the group: “Seddy” because that’s what their grandmother once called Fred, “Shredders” because Bob wants the gang to be known for virtually ripping off their burdensome pounds. The older brother has lost about 70 pounds. He started at 512 pounds and dreams of fitting through the turnstiles at Major League Baseball games. “I really don’t think I could

lose 70 pounds by myself,” he said. His brother lost seven pounds last week. But Bob Shondel, who weighed 428 pounds in September, still has nearly 150 pounds to lose before he can consider taking the physical agility test required to become a sheriff’s deputy. The younger Shondel brother recently underwent lap band surgery. He has a smaller stomach limiting the amount of food the stomach can hold and helping him feel full more quickly. Plus, he joined a gym. Unfortunately, there remains the constant challenge of passing by a McDonald’s

drive-thru. “Once you’re used to eating that kind of food, it’s hard to say no to it,” said Bob Shondel, who works as a security guard. However, “I’m not getting any younger. I have to do it now or else I’m not going to do it.” The brothers take inspiration from reality show personality Chris Powell, who teaches lifestyle changes to obese individuals on the show, “Extreme Weight Loss.” Rose Moore is the 52-yearold sister of Thiltgen, who invites inspirational speakers to join Seddy’s Shredders when the group meets on Saturdays. Rose gained weight when she lost her job in August and then underwent surgery because of cancer. A doctor recently gave her the OK to lose weight and exercise with Seddy’s Shredders. She’s lost a few pounds and will keep going back for the atmosphere. “You just go at your own pace but you have a lot of encouragement behind you, too,” she said.

Lamb? Lion? March, I really don’t care which way you make your exit but please, just go! This is the week that our never-ending oppressive winter finally got to me. When we were deep in the midst of the polar vortex, I ran errands, did my grocery shopping and felt pretty good; the weather was NOT going to get the best of me. This week was a different story. I just could not face these past few drab, dreary, damp days. Maybe it was the sunny Sunday that fooled me into thinking we had finally made it into spring. Wrong. Mentally, I know I need a moment similar to when Cher slaps Nicolas Cage in “Moonstruck.” This weekend I’m going to snap out of it.

The Golfer in My Life is ahead of me on getMARCH 30 ting into a better frame of mind. He and a few KIDS FRUITS & VEGGIES CLASS friends are driving to Bloomington on Sunday DUKE’S ALEHOUSE AND KITCHEN to play golf. Although he is not the chief planner at our house, the Golfer is one of the CRYSTAL LAKE ringleaders in his golf group. With minimal This free fun, interactive, innovative program is requirements (less than a three hour drive, taught by Crystal Lake mom Nina Vanderwiel. The no snow on the course and cheap rates), they program taps into kid’s imaginations and love of found a place that is open and are leaving at 7 superheroes to inspire them to love - and eat! a.m. I wish he would plan a few more things their fruits & veggies. For ages 4-8. Reservations, for us to do together but I know this will be available online, required. From 12 to 2 p.m. great for his attitude. Of course, if his game is rusty, it might just shift the moaning and groaning from the weather to his putting.


Please note; we try to be as accurate as possible with our events but things are subject to change without notice. Check the listing and confirm before heading to an event.

Maybe some humor is the answer? Back in the fall, the Golfer and I diligently went to the

movies every week. Then, like so many things in life, we skipped a week. That turned to two weeks and we haven’t been to show in months! But with the release of both “Bad Words” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” I finally feel like there is something worth seeing. The Golfer probably can’t be talked into a double feature but Jason Bateman’s naughtiness and Wes Anderson’s quirkiness seem like the perfect combination for a Saturday afternoon. If laughing doesn’t help, I think a full immersion in dark and depressing is in order. I have been meaning to binge watch the first season of “Orphan Black” before second one starts in April. This is not my normal genre of choice but the first episode of this science fiction series about clones grabbed me. I also still have “Gone Girl” to finish. My Sunday might just be an afternoon on the couch, under a blanket, with the dog and this book. So adios, March! And April, we are all putting you on notice. Bracket Update: Like many college basketball fans, I have no hope of winning any money in the pool this year. My one shining moment is that I miraculously picked Dayton to make it to the Elite Eight. I cannot tell you how excited I was when I actually realized what I had done! Now, if we can just get the Wolverines to the Final Four. Enjoy the weekend! Autumn

“Bad Words” STARRING: Jason Bateman, Kathryn Hahn, Allison Janney PLOT: A spelling bee loser sets out to exact revenge by finding a loophole and attempting to win as an adult. RATED: R for crude and sexual content, language and brief nudity TIME: 1 hour, 29 minutes VERDICT: If you’ve seen the poster for “Bad Words,” starring and directed by Jason Bateman, you’ll see a sneer on Bateman’s face. More than most movie posters, this image sets a perfect tone for the film, much of which really is that nasty. And funny. Very, very funny. But more on that in a minute. It’s nothing new to see a film about a misanthrope. What does feel different in “Bad Words,” however, is the way Bateman’s character treats kids. Nobody dies or gets physically hurt. But feelings? Kids’ feelings? They don’t just get hurt, they get smashed to smithereens. Bateman’s directorial debut is set in the singular world of the American spelling bee, where ruthlessly brainy kids compete for stardom, pushed by ruthlessly competitive parents. Trilby is 40 years old, but has found a loophole enabling him to compete: The rules say you can’t have passed the eighth grade. And he hasn’t. Ever. Turns out Trilby may be a misanthrope, but he has a genius IQ. And so he makes the finals of the Golden Quill, which, wouldn’t ya know it, are being televised for the first time. This causes great worry for Dr. Deagan, who runs the bee with an iron fist (Allison Janney, who makes you laugh even before she opens her mouth) and the chief overseeing it all, Dr. Bowman (the august Philip Baker Hall). Trilby’s accompanied by a reporter, Jenny Widgeon (Kathryn Hahn, reliably kooky), whose editors are funding his cross-country trip on the mere chance he’ll reveal his inner purpose. But the central dynamic is really between Trilby and a precociously adorable 10-year-old boy, Chaitanya Chopra (Rohan Chand), who seeks Trilby’s friendship even though the latter peppers him, too, with insults. So what’s the point of it all? Well, it’s an American movie that seeks to be mainstream, and

it stars the likable Bateman, so of course there’s an underlying reason for what Trilby’s doing, one that will emerge. But to the film’s credit, this twist doesn’t announce itself too soon, and so there’s tension here – not to mention hilarity. –

The Associated Press

“Sabotage” STARRING: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Terrance Howard PLOT: Members of an elite DEA task force find themselves being taken down one by one after they rob a drug cartel safe house. RATED: R for strong bloody violence, pervasive language, some sexuality/nudity and drug use. TIME: 1 hour, 49 minutes VERDICT: “Sabotage” opens with Arnold Schwarzenegger, as drug enforcement agent John “Breacher” Wharton, sitting in front of his computer screen watching a video of a woman being tortured. He’s obviously disturbed by it, judging by the look on his craggy face. It’s a nasty, brutish job he has. By the time the movie was over, I shared his dismay. The movie quickly gets down to its own dirty business, jumping to a scene of Breacher as he leads his team of elite commandos in a bloody assault on a drug dealer’s compound. Although the violence ebbs and flows, it never stops. That’s to be expected in a film by David Ayer, the writer of “Training Day” (2001) and the writer-director of “End of Watch” (2012). Unlike them, however, “Sabotage” lacks any degree of artistic perspective. The plot centers on the investigation of a series of assassinations targeting the members of Breacher’s team. Like most of Ayer’s heroes, the “good guys” are all flawed to varying degrees. One, played by Mireille Enos, is even a junkie. The rest are pretty much the kind of profane, sexist pigs who would make an NFL locker room look like a Boy Scout meeting. Ayer, I have no doubt, would argue that this frank portrayal honestly reflects the rough-and-tumble culture of steam-blowing machismo in the

world of SWAT teams. While that might be true, it ain’t pretty. Frankly, it shouldn’t be. Schwarzenegger is Schwarzenegger, albeit in a role considerably darker than many he has taken. More nuanced is Olivia Williams, playing the detective looking into the string of murders. Harold Perrineau injects a bit of much-needed comic relief as her sidekick. This is a story that needs blood to make an impact because its message is murky. – The Asso-

Connelly, Anthony Hopkins PLOT: A man is chosen to undertake a momentous mission of rescue before an apocalyptic flood destroys the world. RATED: PG-13 for violence, disturbing images and brief suggestive content TIME: 2 hours, 18 minutes

VERDICT: Old Testament fury rarely has come to such spectacularly fearsome life than in “Noah,” Darren Aronofsky’s audacious adaptation of one of the Bible’s best-known but still enigmatic chapters. Be warned: Anyone familiar with the 500-yearold man and his ark might need to check some of their most cherished visualizations of him at the door. The result is a movie that is clearly deeply respectful of its source material but also at times startlingly revisionist. Viewers might not agree about what they’ve seen when they come out of “Noah.” But there’s no doubt Aronofsky has made an ambitious, serious, even visionary film. Aronofsky starts In the Beginning, and after a brief prologue revisiting Adam and Eve, original sin and the fatal rivalry between Cain and Abel, catches up with Noah as a boy who, by virtue of his lineage and an enchanted snakeskin, is clearly destined for greater things. Conceived and staged like a conventional superhero origin story, “Noah” then finds the grown-up protagonist – played by Russell Crowe – living in Canaan alongside his wife, Naameh (Jennifer Connelly). When Noah begins to experience visions of the flood to come, Aronofsky choreographs them not as messages from the divine, but as stylized,

Dating and peer pressure Treatment for inactive TB collide with teen’s morals can stop future infection Dear Abby: I’m 13, and my classmates are just beginning to “date.” Sometimes what this means is, “Hey, do you want to go to my house, get drunk and have sex?” There’s already a pregnant girl in our school. She’s 12. I’m trying not to get involved in any of this, but I’m constantly being teased for not holding a guy’s hand, let alone not having had my first kiss. I have learned to deal with it, but my problem is there’s this one guy who has been flirting with me. “Jon” is sweet and nice, but he’s part of the popular crowd. I’m afraid if he asks me out, he’ll end up trying to get me drunk. He’s different from the people he hangs out with, but I still don’t know if I can trust him. I want to stay a virgin until I get married. I won’t drink until I’m 21, and I never intend to use drugs. But how do I say no if Jon asks me out and tries to have sex with me or gets me buzzed? I can’t hide my entire junior high through high school life and not accept a date. Can you help? – Too Young For Trouble, Columbia, Mo. Dear Too Young: There’s an old saying, “Birds of a feather flock together,” and it’s usually true. If the price of being popular at your

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips school is being pregnant at 12, then accept you are better off not running with the popular crowd, even if Jon is “nice.” Not all the students in your class are into sex and drinking. It’s up to you to avoid the ones who are and socialize with the ones whose values are like yours. If you do, you will never have to worry about someone getting you “buzzed” and taking advantage of you. Before you go anywhere with anyone, your parents should have met the person. There should be a clear understanding about where you’ll be, what time you’ll be home and which adult will be supervising. Equally important: If you ever find yourself in a situation in which you are not comfortable, call your parents immediately so they can pick you up. Got it? You don’t have to be a prude, but you do have to set boundaries, and your parents can and should help you to do that. Dear Abby: I’m in an awkward position. I start-

I’m not qualified to do a lot of the basic tasks, such as welding or pipe fitting, but I work hard. I come in early and stay late. I’m respectful and try to have a positive attitude. The problem is most of the guys here regard me as the arrogant, spoiled nephew (which I’m not). They think I’m incapable and only got the job through my family ties. How do I prove myself to them? I want to earn their respect. If I ask my uncle to talk to them, they won’t trust me and it will make me look bad. Help me, please. –

Dear Dr. K: My 6-year-old just had a positive reading on her Mantoux test. What does this mean? Dear Reader: Doctors perform a Mantoux test to see if someone may have been exposed to bacteria that cause tuberculosis (TB). TB is a bacterial infection that typically infects the lungs. Fortunately, in most people exposed to the bacteria, TB never develops. TB bacteria spread from person to person through the air. The bacteria come out of someone’s mouth or nose when that person coughs or sneezes. When infection occurs, bacteria are inhaled into the deepest portion of the lung. There, the bacteria multiply. They also can spread to other parts of the body. (I’ve put an illustration on my website, www.askdoctork. com.) When the TB bacteria first enter a person’s lung, the immune system can usually keep them from multiplying, but it usually cannot destroy them completely. As a result, the disease often remains inactive for life. People with inactive TB do not have any symptoms. And if the bacteria are not multiplying, and the person is not coughing, a person cannot spread the infection to others.

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff But it still can be important to determine if someone has inactive TB. That’s because an inactive infection can slowly and quietly become active. The bacteria can start multiplying again, causing symptoms and often making the person contagious. Treatment can eradicate the inactive infection, and thereby prevent a future active infection. Testing for inactive TB is most important in people who are at high risk. That includes people who live with other people who have had active TB of the lung, and people who have been in casual contact with those who have highly contagious types of TB. Health workers often fall into the latter category. The only way to tell if a person has been infected is with a Mantoux skin test. I assume the test was done on your daughter because the doctor believed she was at extra risk. Perhaps there was another child in her school who was found to have an active infection that could have been spread to other kids.

Here’s how the skin test works: A small amount of protein taken from dead TB bacteria is placed just under the skin. (It’s completely safe.) The site is checked two to three days later. If TB bacteria have been in the person’s body before, there will be a slightly hard, sometimes red swelling. Whether or not it is “positive” depends on the amount of swelling. Once a Mantoux is positive, it tends to stays positive, even after treatment. If your daughter’s Mantoux test is positive, it doesn’t necessarily mean she has active TB disease. It just means the bacteria have entered her body. Your daughter’s doctor will check her for any signs of TB. The next step is a chest X-ray to check for TB infection in the lungs. If there is any indication your daughter has an active infection, she will be treated with antibiotics. Even if the checkup and X-ray are normal, your daughter’s doctor might still recommend medicine to eradicate the bacteria and prevent a future active infection. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

NEW YORK – Sometimes satire isn’t made for Twitter’s 140-character world. Comedy Central deleted a message Thursday from its “Colbert Report” Twitter feed showing a still from Wednesday night’s show where Stephen Colbert joked about starting a “Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever.” The joke was part of a skit in which Colbert talked about the Washington Redskins’ owner buying things for Native Americans upset with the team’s name. A #CancelColbert hashtag appeared on Twitter, igniting a debate over what is funny and what is offensive.


Newly developed Cobain photos show Seth Rogen: West-Kardashian spoofs suicide scene from 20 years ago with James Franco are in good fun

Comedian George Lopez makes no apologies on social media NEW YORK – George Lopez’s new sitcom on FX is called “Saint George,” but that doesn’t mean he’s making any apologies. Earlier this year, Lopez vowed to be more direct and honest after receiving a mean tweet on Twitter. “... I got a very negative ‘go back to Mexico’ tweet,’” the 52-year-old comedian said in a recent interview. “I’m an American citizen. I responded as I would as myself. Since that day, I decided to be a little more honest with social media. ... I decided to take a little bit more of an aggressive approach. I was losing followers, about 1,000 a week. I was like, ‘Why am I losing like a noticeable amount?’ Since Super Bowl Sunday ... I’m sure I’ve gained 55,000 followers.” His new mantra was put to the test recently when he was photographed lying on a casino floor after going on a drinking spree in Ontario, Canada. The photo went viral, and Lopez faced what happened head on – by making a joke. “Tied one on last night. Not feeling great this morning. I was trying to sleep it off, unfortunately, it was on the casino floor,” he said in a statement issued after the incident. “I owned it and moved forward and would do what any comedian would do, (which) is to make fun of it and move past it. It really kind of took the air out of it,” he says. “... To give up drinking and have people know holds me accountable. But nobody is gonna hold me more accountable than I hold myself, so a lot of times ... somebody will say, ‘Did you have a drink last night?’ And you answer or you don’t answer, but their assumption of my life isn’t as important as the reality of my own life ... I’ve had enough alcohol really in my life. I don’t intend on (drinking), but it is fun to kind of see people’s opinions on how I should live my life.”

SEATTLE – Police say recently developed photos show the greenhouse room above a garage where grunge rock icon Kurt Cobain killed himself 20 years ago. The four rolls of crime scene photos were developed by a cold case detective in anticipation of the anniversary of the Nirvana frontman’s suicide on April 8, 1994. Police made two of the photos public March 20 when they announced the development. Those images show a box of drug paraphernalia and items such as glasses, a wallet and pack of cigarettes. All 35 photos were released this week to CBS through a public disclosure request. The Associated Press also is seeking the images. Police spokeswoman Renee Witt said nothing from the additional photos has changed the conclusion that Cobain killed himself with a shotgun. The case remains closed.

Lambert, Strait to salute legend Merle Haggard at ACM Awards NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country music’s biggest stars are turning out for a salute to Merle Haggard. Miranda Lambert and George Strait will team up to perform a tribute medley of Haggard’s hits during the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 6, and Garth Brooks will present the singer-songwriter with the academy’s Crystal Milestone Award. Songs Lambert and Strait will perform include “Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down” and “I’m a Lonesome Fugitive.” The academy also announced Friday morning that The Band Perry will open the show with a performance, Hunter Hayes will perform for a child hunger charity campaign and Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line will team with Nitro Circus Action Stars, an action sports troupe. Bryan and Blake Shelton co-host the CBS show.

LAS VEGAS – Attention Hollywood casting agents: Seth Rogen is looking for someone to play the part of baby North in the next Kim Kardashian-Kanye West spoof with pal James Franco. The 31-year-old actor made the press rounds Thursday at CinemaCon in Las Vegas to promote his upcoming movie, “The Interview” (co-starring Franco). Rogen said he’s “a huge fan of Kanye West” and that’s at the heart of his mimicry. “I’m like just really into his music, and when we made the original (spoof of West’s “Bound 2” music video featuring Kardashian), we were filming ‘The Interview’ in Vancouver and we kept trying to go to Kanye West shows that kept getting canceled or the dates kept changing and it happened like two or three times. We were just talking about him all the time and then the video came out so we were just like, ‘Let’s just try to do that.’ ”

Gwyneth Paltrow speaks, thanks her supporters in split with husband NEW YORK – Gwyneth Paltrow took to Goop and the lifestyle site’s regular weekly email Friday to offer thanks to supporters standing by her and her “consciously uncoupled” husband, Chris Martin, in their freshly announced separation. But first there was chicken. Three ways to prepare it, in fact. The thanks came in the form of a P.S. below her usual introduction, as in: “P.S. CM and I in deep gratitude for the support of so many.” She added a little heart at the end. The 41-year-old actress announced their split Tuesday on Goop, staying away from the D word – divorce – and earning a new round of sneers and mockery when she used the New Agey term “conscious uncoupling” instead, with explanation.

Dechow gets his moment Wrestler honored by ODU for being an All-American

Sarah Nader –

Jacobs base runner Hailey Lonigro slides safely into home ahead of the throw to Marian Central’s Maddie Peters during the first game of Friday’s doubleheader at Lippold Park in Crystal Lake. The Golden Eagles swept the Hurricanes, 12-1 and 17-2.

Eagles start with a sweep Lach smacks 2 inside-the-park homers in wins By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO CRYSTAL LAKE – For the first time this spring, Jacobs and Marian Central finally had an opportunity to play on a softball diamond. Granted, the conditions for Friday’s doubleheader at Lippold Park weren’t ideal, with temperatures in the 30s and a brisk wind. The situation didn’t seem to faze a veteran Golden Eagles team. Jacobs’ bats were alive from the first inning of Game 1 in the doubleheader, scoring five runs and sending nine batters to the plate. It fueled the Golden Eagles to a 12-1 win in Game 1 and followed that with another victory, 17-2, in Game 2. The Golden Eagles (2-0) took advan-

“I’m happy with how our team played; everyone hit the ball hard,” Lach said. “It’s a great way to start the season. We can build off of that. Both teams were playing in this (weather), so you just have to deal with it and make sure you have a good grip on the ball when you throw.” The Hurricanes’ defense didn’t help starting pitchers Jenny Giesey (0-1) and Maddie Peters (0-1). A dropped fly ball, which would have ended the first inning in Game 2, led to six unearned runs, which Marian couldn’t overcome. Ultimately, the young Hurricanes’ mental miscues proved costly as they finished the doubleheader with seven total errors.

During the past week, Jack Dechow has had plenty to celebrate. The Richmond-Burton graduate won four matches at the NCAA Division I wrestling championships last week in Oklahoma City to place fourth and become Old Dominion University’s first 184-pound All-American in school history. On Monday, the school had a chance to celebrate Dechow, a redshirt freshman, when he Jack Dechow was honored at halftime of ODU’s men’s basketball game against Radford. “It was good,” Dechow said of the ovation. “There’s nothing better than winning.” Despite going into the meet as the No. 13 seed in his class, Dechow advanced to the quarterfinals with wins against Virginia’s Jonathon Fausey (7-5) and No. 4-seed Max Thommusseit (3-1) to earn a spot on the podium, his goal heading into the tournament. In the second round, Dechow upset No. 4 seed Max Thomusseit from Pittsburgh, 3-1, in overtime. “I thought the seed he got was too low,” ODU coach Steve Martin said. “I don’t know where they came up with that seed.” Although Martin felt his wrestler was snubbed, Dechow kept producing wins. The Mid-American Conference champion in his class beat 12th-seeded Ophir Bernstein of Brown (7-5) to advance to the championship semis, where he lost to top-seeded Jimmy Sheptock of Maryland, 3-2. Dechow bounced back by beating seventh-seeded Kevin Steinhaus of Minnesota (8-4).

Wolverines hold on late to beat Volunteers By MICHAEL MAROT The Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS – Michigan coach John Beilein had watched his team blow almost all of a 15-point lead, and he was sure he knew how Tennessee would try to take the lead. With six seconds left and trailing 72-71, Cuonzo Martin would probably send the ball into Jarnell Stokes, who would try to back into the post or drive. Beilein urged his defenders to buckle down and keep Stokes away from the rim. Jordan Morgan, who scored 15 points, heeded his coach’s advice and stood his ground until Stokes lowered his shoulder. The senior forward immediately crashed to the floor – perhaps embellishing

“Rocky Top” contingent. Big Ten player of the year Nik Stauskas made a late free throw and nobody was more relieved than Beilein when Jordan McRae’s 70-foot heave fell harmlessly to the floor as the buzzer sounded on a 73-71 Michigan victory. “We got just enough stops,” Beilein said. Tennessee thought they got one stop unfairly. “With the magnitude of this game, I don’t think you could call a charge at that point,” McRae said dejectedly after scoring 24 points. But the officials did call it, allowing Michigan to reach a second straight regional final. The Wolverines (28-8) have

Jakubowski scores twice in win Red Raiders hand Huskies their 1st loss of the season By PATRICK MASON HUNTLEY – The Huntley girls soccer team used a combination of constant offensive pressure and strong defense to get past nonconference opponent Hersey on Friday afternoon. The Red Raiders scored a goal in each half and goalkeeper Jessica Galason turned away six shots to complete the shutout for a 2-0 win. Sophomore forward Taryn Jakubowski scored each of the Red Raiders’ goals. In the 25th minute, she received a feed from Abigale Enrici and was


able to fire a shot past Huskies goalkeeper Morgan Harris to take a 1-0 lead. “I just tried to fight off the defender and get to space and just shoot it,” Jakubowski said. Her second goal required no shaking of the defender as Alyssa Kaufman was fouled in the goal box for a penalty kick, which Jakubowski took with 11:54 remaining in the match. She scored in the lower left corner but had to retake the shot after moving before the whistle. Once she reset, she shot the ball in the same place and scored for a 2-0 lead. “I just need to listen better,” she said with a laugh. “But I felt confident retaking it and the same spot was open.” Her two goals gave Huntley its first win of the season, but

the win is just a small piece in the bigger picture for Huntley (1-1). In recent seasons, Huntley often has played one of the most difficult nonconference schedules in the area. The reason for the heavy dose of tough opponents, as coach Kris Grabner explained, is to get his team ready for conference play and, ultimately, the postseason. “As we got better and better over the years, we tried to set up a schedule that was as challenging as possible,” Grabner said. This season is no different as the Red Raiders opened their season against two strong teams. They lost Wednesday to a Palatine team that has one of the top keepers in the state. The Red Raiders rebounded and handed Hersey (4-1)

its first lost of the season Friday. The Huskies already had beaten strong teams such as Carmel, Prairie Ridge, Lake Forest and Cary-Grove. Huntley will finish its homestand against Elk Grove and Belvidere North. “It’s a good start to the season where we get tested early,” Grabner said. “We want to win games but we also want to be prepared by the end of the season.” The Red Raiders have reached sectionals in each of the past seven seasons but haven’t been able to advance. Friday’s win was a step in starting to play good soccer as Jakubowski and the rest of the offense were able to solve a talented group of Hersey defenders, while Rachel Zobott led the defense in shutting down Hersey’s offense. “We’re athletic enough

to score on weaker teams,” Hersey coach Darren Llewellyn said, “but a stronger team like Huntley was able to limit our chances. “They’re solid. You can tell they play well together and their midfield and front line is stronger than even they might think.” Huntley got off just four shots on goal against Harris, but the ability to possess the ball and control the pace of the match proved the players ability to adapt, which is something that Grabner was excited to see at this point in the season. “Our goal is to just get through that dang sectional,” he said. “These team’s back line has been so good, we just have to learn to beat that and score goals when it’s tough and that will help us out down the line.”

By CHRIS CASEY CRYSTAL LAKE – Prairie Ridge’s Ben Cilano never had made a varsity start before Friday afternoon. He showed why he deserved one and much more, striking out batter after batter. The junior pitcher totaled 12 strikeouts, as the Wolves fell to Fremd, 1-0, at Lippold Park “I felt like I had good command of all my pitches today,” Cilano said. “I have a good defense behind me, which gives me a lot of confidence to throw strikes as well.” Cilano allowed only three hits in six scoreless innings, exiting after escaping a tough jam in the sixth. After giving up a one-out double to No. 9-hitter Jack Gill, Cilano struck out the next batter. He then threw a wild pitch, allowing Gill to move to third. “I knew it was going to be my last inning,” Cilano said. “I just wanted to finish it out strong and not allow a run.” He then struck out the next batter, but hit the one after that; this left Cilano in a first-and-third situation with two outs. After falling behind Fremd and Butler-bound first baseman Austin Jetel, 3-0, Cilano came back to strike out his final batter of the afternoon. “We have been excited about Ben since Day 1,” Prairie Ridge coach Glen Pecoraro said. “This was his first varsity start, and we knew he had the potential to be something special.” The game remained scoreless through six innings because of Fremd’s pitching as well. Starter and Northwestern-bound Mack Rosman pitched 43 scoreless innings, striking out four and walking one. Prairie Ridge threatened to score in the fifth inning when junior third baseman Cal Aldridge walked and stole second with one out. Rosman struck out the next batter before he was removed from the game. Reliever, and eventual winning pitcher, Anthony Douvris came in to get leadoff PR hitter Chris Slack to ground out to end the inning. The scoreless game ended when Cilano was removed after six innings. The first batter reliever Jack Myers faced was Fremd catcher Ian Bohn. Bohn hit the second pitch from Myers over the left-field fence for a home run. The Wolves (0-4) got a single from catcher Dustin Thelander in the seventh, but failed to move him from first base. “It’s never easy to lose a game 1-0,” Pecoraro said. “We are 0-4, but three of those games could have easily gone our way. We can build and learn from these losses.”

Herendeen, MCC baseball top North Park Lincoln Herendeen (2-0) struck out seven and did not give up an earned run for the McHenry County College baseball team in an 11-6 win against North Park University in Chicago. Andy Gertonson drove in two runs, Tyler Mindak hit two doubles and Jeremy Vasquez scored three runs for the Scots (7-3) in the win.

76ers on cusp of NBA record 27th straight loss PHILADELPHIA – The Philadelphia 76ers are on the cusp of winning the NBA’s version of The Biggest Loser. Think of all the can’t-watchthis bad basketball in the league’s history. The sevenwin Charlotte Bobcats in 2011-12 could only muster a 23-game skid. The 1972-73 Sixers that went 9-73; just 20 straight losses. Those old Clippers and Grizzlies teams that couldn’t even crack double-digit win totals didn’t come close to 26. None of them lost as many consecutive games as the Sixers. They have lost 26 straight games, a winless stretch has been matched in NBA history only by the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers.

Cabrera gets record $292M, 10-year deal LAKELAND, Fla. – This is one number put up by Miguel Cabrera that is not subject to debate. The Triple Crown winner agreed Friday to the richest contract in American sports, a $292 million, 10-year deal with the Detroit Tigers. “I want to finish my career here. I have worked hard to get better, and Detroit is like a house for me,” Cabrera said.

SAN FRANCISCO – Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum has left his final exhibition start of the spring with a bruised left knee. Lincecum went down writhing in pain when he was hit in his back leg by a hardhit grounder from Oakland’s Daric Barton in the top of the fourth inning Friday night. Lincecum tried to run toward first but immediately fell to the ground, unable to put any pressure on his leg. He limped off the field with the assistance of two trainers.

game, surrendering one run in four innings. Eight Golden Eagles recorded an RBI, including Katie Borchert, who drove in three runs with a bases-clearing double in third inning of Game 2. “The hitting was good, good

at-bats, especially in the beginning of the season you want to see pitches and get comfortable with live pitching at this stage of the game,” Jacobs coach Jeremy Bauer said. “All in all, I thought we hit the ball well and defended really well.”

D-C grad Kittle earns D-III All-America status • ON CAMPUS Continued from page C1 “The national tournament is 99.9 percent mental,” Martin said. “If you show up mentally, you’re going to make an impact.” In his third-place bout against third-seed Gabriel Dean of Cornell, Dechow lost his second one-point decision at nationals, 5-4. “I went in wanting to be an all-American,” Dechow said. “Now, I want to win a national title.” Dechow, who finished the season 21-6, missed 60 days of his season with a high ankle sprain. “That’s a lot of time in wrestling,” Martin said. A 4-2 victory against Northern Iowa All-American Ryan Loder in the MAC title match was enough to convince Martin that Dechow was back. “I was really out of shape,” Dechow said. “So I had to work that much harder to get back.”

In Oklahoma City, more than 30 friends and family were part of Dechow’s cheering section, including his parents, Rick and Cheri. “They’ve always been great,” Dechow said. “I’m very thankful and very grateful for their support. They came to every meet this season except one.” Dechow also had plenty of support this season from his first cousin, legendary R-B wrestler and three-time University of Illinois all-American Jordan Blanton. “He was someone I really admired growing up,” said Dechow, who talked on the phone throughout the season with Blanton for advice and support. “He’s been there three times. He knows what it’s like.”

Lincoln, Neb. Kittle, a junior, entered the meet with the seventh-best time in the nation and placed sixth in the prelims in 8.08. He also earned All-America recognition during the outdoor season last spring in the 110 hurdles. Alex Friske, a senior from McHenry, qualified for nationals in the women’s 60 hurdles with the nation’s 13th-best time. She finished 14th in the preliminaries (8.88) in her first national meet. At last month’s Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference meet at Anderson, Kittle and Friske won the men’s and women’s meet MVP awards, respectively. Kittle was part of four victories, while Friske set meet records in the 60 Anderson achievers: hurdles (8.98) and 200 dash Dundee-Crown grad Max (26.74). Kittle earned NCAA D-III Top golfer: Brad Hyland, a All-America status this sophomore at D-III Carthage month at the indoor track and College in Kenosha, Wis., was field nationals with a fourthnamed the College Conferplace finish in the 60-meter ence of Illinois and Wisconsin hurdles in 8.11 seconds in Men’s Golfer of the Week on

Wednesday. The Prairie Ridge graduate tied for second place with a 1-under-par 71 at the team’s season-opening match-play event against D-II Wisconsin-Parkside in Mesa, Ariz. For the 2013-14 season, Hyland has a team-leading 74.3 stroke average and four top-10 finishes.

Hawkeye makes a splash: Dundee-Crown’s Colleen Champa, a sophomore swimmer at Iowa, won the B final last month in the 200-meter breaststroke at the Big Ten Championships in Minneapolis. Champa finished in 2:13.69, the third-fastest time in school history.

NEW YORK – Baseball players suspended during the season for a performance-enhancing drug violation will not be eligible for that year’s postseason under changes to the sport’s drug agreement announced Friday. In a series of significant changes to the drug rules, Major League Baseball and the players’ association said penalties will increase from 50 games to 80 for a first testing violation and from 100 games to 162 for a second. A third penalty remains a lifetime ban. A player serving a seasonlong suspension will lose all his pay. Under the previous deal, the Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez gets 21/183 of his salary this year, or about $2.8 million.

Another off night for Hawks

Teravainen not aggressive enough


By MARK LAZERUS OTTAWA, Ontario – The regular season ends two weeks from Saturday. It might be time for the sleepwalking Blackhawks to start groping the walls, looking for that switch they need to flip. “Of course, it’s urgent,” Jonathan Toews said after the Hawks’ Next second disheartening at Pittsburgh, defeat in as 6:30 p.m. many nights, Sunday, NBCSN, a 5-3 loss to the AM-720 middling Ottawa Senators. “These are big games for everyone. The time is now to play our best hockey.” Instead, a dismal first-period stretch and a weak finish negated what coach Joel Quenneville deemed a “perfect” second period, as the Hawks failed to clinch a playoff berth for the second consecutive night. Coming off a 3-0 loss in Boston, the Hawks found themselves down 3-0 less than a minute into the second period, and couldn’t claw all the way back. It was their third regulation loss in four games. The Hawks are just 7-7-1 since the Olympic break. Toews was more defiant than frustrated after this one – all but daring the rest of the Western Conference to take the Hawks lightly given their recent struggles. “Not to sound arrogant or anything like that, but I think we can control the game, we can find ways to win, regardless of who we’re up against – if we want it bad enough,” he said. It’s not far-fetched to believe the Hawks can just turn it on

Blackhawks goaltender Antti Raanta lies injured near his net as referee Marc Joannette looks at him during the first period Friday against the Ottawa Senators in Ottawa, Ontario. Raanta stayed in the game. come mid-April. They’re playoff-tested, of course, and should be getting Patrick Kane back in time for the playoffs. They’ve proven time and again that they can raise their game and beat the best the league has to offer – including a convincing 4-0 rout of the St. Louis Blues nine days earlier. But there have been plenty of off nights of late, and there won’t be time for off nights in what is shaping up to be a brutally difficult Western Conference playoffs. Toews declined to offer up his theory as to why the Hawks don’t seem to “want it bad enough” lately, saying it would be “throwing out excuses.” Offensively, the Hawks clearly miss Kane and Bryan Bickell. But that doesn’t explain an uncharacteristically bad turnover by Duncan Keith that led to Erik Condra’s short-handed goal in the first period. Or a last-minute goal given up to

Cody Ceci in the first, or Milan Michalek’s goal just 23 seconds into the second. “Consistency and playing well defensively gets you success in our league,” Quenneville said. “We’re maybe looking for shortcuts.” From that low point, the Hawks’ response was very good. The need for such a response was not. “I don’t know if it’s a lack of working hard, it’s just being a little bit smarter,” Keith said. “We’ve got guys in here that care. It’s not a question of that.” The Hawks dominated play the rest of the period, firing off 23 shots in the frame and getting goals from Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa. But Matt Carey was called for a hand pass on a faceoff early in the third period – a call that left the Hawks fuming – and Kyle Turris scored to

make it 4-2. Clarke MacArthur bumped it to 5-2, while Brent Seabrook added a short-handed goal with three minutes left. Park Ridge native Craig Anderson made 45 saves for the Senators. Meanwhile, Andrew Shaw was ejected late in the third for spearing Zack Smith, a play the NHL was reviewing Friday night. It could earn Shaw a fine or even a suspension, and it was emblematic of the frustration the Hawks are dealing with, and the out-of-character play that’s been plaguing them. “Better now than three weeks from now,” Toews said of the funk. True. But time is running out. It’s time to find that switch, before it’s too late. • Mark Lazerus covers the Blackhawks for the Chicago Sun-Times. Follow him on Twitter @marklazerus.

OTTAWA, Ontario – Through two games, Blackhawks rookie Teuvo Teravainen has yet to record a single shot on goal. He didn’t have any Friday night, either, because he was a healthy scratch. The two aren’t necessarily directly related, but coach Joel Quenneville would like to see Teravainen be more aggressive. The 19-year-old Finn is a playmaker first and a goal-scorer second, but at least twice Thursday night against the Boston Bruins, he gave up a point-blank shot in favor of a low-percentage pass through traffic. Quenneville wants to see him defer less, and shoot more. “Offensively, you think of shooting,” Quenneville said. “He has the puck in some good areas there, and he looks like he wants to dish a lot of times, but think of getting it to the net yourself, and get some action off of that.” That said, Quenneville said he liked what he’s seen from Teravainen so far. If scratching him was to rest him and continue easing him into NHL life, or was a calculated move to keep his games played to less than 10 and preserve his three-year entry-level contract, Quenneville wasn’t letting on. “Our plan is short term,” he said. “We’re evaluating as we go along here, and assessing things and options, as well.” Carey debuts: With Teravainen and Jeremy Morin out of the lineup, Quenneville said before the game that he was going to “try something.” That something turned out to be Matt Carey’s NHL debut.

Carey, a center signed out of St. Lawrence College on March 20, skated on a line with Brandon Saad and Peter Regin. Because he signed after the trade deadline, Carey is ineligible to play in the postseason. But Quenneville said he wanted to get Carey in a game or two – much like the Hawks did with St. Cloud State’s Drew LeBlanc last season – to see what he can do and to give him some NHL experience before next season, when he presumably will start in Rockford. Bickell biding time: Bryan Bickell missed his fifth straight game with an upper-body injury, though Quenneville didn’t rule him out for Sunday’s game in Pittsburgh, saying, “he’s close.” While Patrick Kane’s injury has obviously hurt the Hawks’ offense – they’ve been shut out twice this week – Bickell’s absence has been felt, too. “I thought Bick was playing his best hockey all year,” Quenneville said. “He brings that presence, physicality, speed off the rush, shot, disruption on the forecheck. He made a difference in the game. We’re hoping that he comes back and plays at the same pace, especially at this time of the season.” Injury report: Michal Rozsival resumed skating back in Chicago, and Quenneville hoped he could be back in time for Thursday’s home game against Minnesota. Kane isn’t doing anything hockey-related yet, but “he’s progressing,” Quenneville said. “He’s right on course.”

Steps taken back with loss to Blazers

Villanueva named fifth starter

By JOE COWLEY Three days off was supposed to be the perfect remedy. A much needed rest for a team that seems to grind through a schedule, rather than play through it. Three days to get right physically and mentally. And that still wasn’t enough to be ready for Portland on Friday night. Thanks to a 10-for-22 shooting night from the Trail Blazers, all those warm, fuzzy feelings the Bulls had in the wake of Monday’s win over Indiana seemed long over with. That’s what a 91-74 loss at home can do to a team. “We didn’t have the energy we normally have,” Bulls guard Jimmy Butler said. “We didn’t hit shots, and we damn sure didn’t guard.” So basically, pick a problem. Because the Bulls (40-32) had a bunch of them. “Yeah, we were flat,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. “I think [Portland] had something to do with that. We didn’t cover the line the way we would have liked to.” That was the first crack in the dam. After holding Portland (47-27) to just 1-for-5 from long distance in the first quarter and only trailing 19-16, it was as if the usually reliable Bulls defense forgot there was a three-point line to guard. Portland went 4-for-4 from out there in the second and then 4-for-8 in the third. “It just seemed like we were a step behind the play,” Thibodeau said. “A couple of them were scramble threes, and you can live with that, but a couple other ones we lacked discipline on closeouts. But we didn’t cover the line the way we needed to.” Especially in transition, where the Bulls looked confused, and Portland feasted on that hesitation. “We caused it, not talking, not paying attention to the basic defensive principles,” But-

Next at Boston, 6 p.m. Sunday, WGN, AM-1000 ler said. “I feel like when you’re in transition you’ve always got to talk. There’s no man in transition. You just got to pick up the man nearest to you.” The answer for the Bulls? How about shooting a dismal 3-for-17 (17.6 percent) from the three-point line on the offensive end. “Offensively, we were just so bad,” Mike Dunleavy said. “Besides just making shots, just making the right decisions. Eventually it affected us on the defensive end.” Asked if he felt like he and his teammates looked sluggish out of the gate, Dunleavy agreed. “Yeah, maybe a little bit,” he said. “I just thought we got some good looks early on that didn’t go down and sort of snowballed from there. Just one of those nights. Not our best, not our best for sure.” Made worse by the fact that Toronto won, keeping the Bulls in that No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, a game behind the Raptors with 10 to play. “We pay attention,” Joakim Noah said of the standings. “It’s our job to pay attention of what’s going on. But we have to worry about us. There’s 10 games left, we’re playing pretty good basketball. [Friday] was just a bump in the road.” A bump that all but erased any good feeling coming out of that Indiana win. “I don’t want to look back at Indiana,” Thibodeau said. “We lost this game, so we’re going to analyze why we lost it, make our corrections and get ready for Boston. One game is not the end all either way.” • Joe Cowley covers the Bulls for the Chicago SunTimes.

By GORDON WITTENMYER PHOENIX – As the Cubs finalize their roster for their opener Monday, the decision to make Carlos Villanueva the fifth starter was less intriguing than the fact they can’t finish a bullpen. Manager Rick Renteria said he expects to have that decision before the Cubs head to Pittsburgh after their last exhibition game Saturday afternoon against the Diamondbacks. Renteria wouldn’t say what the decision is coming down to. But out-of-options Alberto Cabrera had backto-back ugly outings Tuesday and Wednesday, which coincided with multiple media reports suggesting he would make the club. Indications are his status is in serious doubt.

Next at Arizona, 3:10 p.m. Saturday, CSN, AM-720

Because the Cubs officially have no relievers left in camp over the number they plan to carry in their opening bullpen, they’re considering players already sent out as possible alternatives to Cabrera. Those include Blake Parker, who has some internal support because of a good big-league season last year, and Brian Schlitter, who has shown especially powerful stuff this spring. “I’d take him right now,” one evaluator from a rival club said after Schlitter was sent out. The Villanueva decision

Friday came down to the veteran’s versatility and experience as a swingman as well as his effectiveness down the stretch this spring, Renteria said. It means left-hander Chris Rusin, who pitched well this spring until a rough outing on a blustery Wednesday, opens the season in the Class AAA rotation. “That’s the part of it that sucks,” said Villanueva, whose first start comes April 6 at home against the Phillies. “You’re competing with somebody that you love and that you want to have a lot of success, too. But it doesn’t mean he’s not going to have any. He’s just maybe not going to have it right now in the big leagues.” Rusin had a 3.93 ERA in 13 starts for the Cubs last year, most after the Cubs traded away Scott Feldman and Matt Garza in July.

Villanueva, who was successful in fill-in rotation duty for the injured Garza early last season, now fills in for Jake Arrieta (shoulder), who could return in late April. Arrieta is traveling with the team and is scheduled for another bullpen session Monday before the season opener. “Right now, I think it talks about the strength of our team,” Villanueva said of the roster flux late in camp. “We have a way better team than we did. The fact that a lot of tough decisions came down to the wire lets people know that we’re not all thinking about the future right now. “The guys here are thinking about now. We want to win now.” • Gordon Wittenmyer covers the Cubs for the Chicago Sun-Times. Follow him on Twitter @GDubCub.


Sox make final tweaks before Opening Day By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN The White Sox checked into Birmingham, Ala., for last-minute tweaks and tuneups before Monday’s season opener, detouring on their way home from Arizona to play their Class AA affiliateFriday night. After manager Robin Ventura presented the Barons with their Southern League championship rings, the Sox beat them 5-2 in an exhibition that allowed their bullpen arms to work one inning apiece. In order over the first six innings, Matt Lindstrom, Scott Downs, Ronald Belisario, Nate Jones, Daniel Webb and Maikel Cleto each worked a scoreless inning. None of them issued a walk. After the game, the Sox

Opening Day vs. Minnesota, 3:10 p.m. Monday, CSN, AM-670

reassigned pitchers Zach Putnam and David Purcey, catcher Hector Gimenez, infielders Alex Liddi and Micah Johnson and outfielder Blake Tekotte to minor-league camp, effectively settling on an Opening Day roster that includes a bullpen of Jones, Lindstrom, Belisario, Webb, Cleto, and left-handers Downs and Donnie Veal. After Gordon Beckham and Jeff Keppinger go on the disabled list, the Opening Day roster will be set. Here’s how it shapes up:

Starting rotation: Chris Sale, Felipe Paulino, Jose Quintana, Erik Johnson and John Danks. Lineup (order to be determined): Adam Eaton CF, Marcus Semien 2B, Jose Abreu 1B, Avisail Garcia RF, Adam Dunn DH, Dayan Viciedo LF, Conor Gillaspie 3B, Alexei Ramirez SS, Tyler Flowers C. Bench: Alejandro De Aza OF, Paul Konerko DH-1B, Leury Garcia IF, Adrian Nieto C, although it’s possible Konerko and/or De Aza could start Monday against the Twins. DL: Beckham, Keppinger. Earlier Friday, right-handed reliever Javy Guerra was outrighted to Class AAA Charlotte, two days after he was claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Dodgers. Guerra, who owns a 4-5 re-

cord with 29 saves and a 2.90 ERA over parts of three seasons with the Dodgers, spent most of last season with Class AAA Albuquerque. He reported to the Sox’ spring training facility in Glendale, Ariz., on Friday. Guerra, 28, was out of options, and because of the timing of the Sox’ request that he go to Charlotte, he could have gone through waivers again, but any team that claimed him would have had to place him on their Opening Day roster. “We potentially have another arm in the organization who can help us at some point during the season,’’ general manager Rick Hahn said. • Darly Van Schouwen covers the White Sox for the Chicago Sun-Times, Follow him on Twitter CST_soxvan.

Wildcats tops in-state rivals By EDDIE PELLS The Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS – OK, so maybe they’re not the quickest learners. Still, the kids at Kentucky figured out Louisville just in time. Aaron Harrison hit a 3-pointer for the go-ahead score with 39 seconds left and Julius Randle made a pair of clutch free throws to lift the fantastic freshman of Kentucky to a 74-69 victory over their in-state rivals. The eighth-seeded Wildcats (27-10) led for a grand total of 65 seconds in this Midwest Regional semifinal. They’ll play Michigan on Sunday for a trip to the Final Four. Few expected a run this deep as this season played out and Kentucky’s five freshmen starters struggled to play a team game. But they’ve been learning

that tied the game at 66 inside of 2 minutes. Then, it was the Kentucky freshmen who showed all the poise against the defending national champs, led by seniors Russ Smith (23 points) and Luke Hancock (19).

NEW YORK – Branden Dawson had 24 points and 10 rebounds and Michigan State beat top-seeded Virginia 61-59 on Friday night to advance to East Regional final. The fourth-seeded Spartans (29-8) will play Connecticut (29-8) on Sunday with a Final Four berth at stake. The seventh-seeded Huskies beat third-seeded Iowa State 81-76 earlier Friday. Michigan State overcame a horrible start to the second half and then withstood a late run by the Cavaliers (30-7) to advance to the regional finals for the eighth time since 1985 – all under coach Tom Izzo. Joe Harris and Malcolm Brogden both had 17 points for Virginia, which became the second No. 1 seed to be eliminated, joining Wichita State. Adreian Payne had 16 points for Michigan State and his 3-pointer with 1:29 left gave the Spartans the lead for good at 54-51. After a miss by Brogdon, the 6-foot-10 Payne turned point guard, finding Dawson with a line drive lob pass for a dunk with 52 seconds to go. Harris hit a 3 with 39 seconds left to bring the Cavaliers within 56-54. Payne found another way to help the Spartans, making two free throws with 32 seconds left for a 58-54 lead. Brogdon hit a 3 with 1.1 seconds left to bring Virginia within 60-59. Gary Harris made one of two free throws to make it 6159 and Virginia’s last attempt was well off the mark. Michigan State came up with a defensive effort that Virginia is known for. The Spartans held the Cavaliers to 35.1

percent shooting (20 of 57), well off the 45.7 percent they shot during the season and nowhere near the 54.3 percent they shot in the two NCAA tournament games. Dawson, who averages 11.0 points per game, has scored in double figures in six straight games and he had a career-high 26 points in the third-round win over Harvard. Michigan State started the second half by missing seven of its first eight shots and committing five turnovers. Virginia took advantage to turn a 3127 halftime deficit into a 38-34 lead. The Spartans went on a 13-2 run to go up 49-42 with 6:10 to go. Virginia, the Atlantic Coast Conference regular season and tournament champions, answered with a 7-0 run to tie the game at 51 with 1:51 left and then Payne accounted for Michigan State’s next seven points. Michigan State, which has become one of the favorites for the national championship since it has finally become healthy, shot 44.7 percent from the field (21 for 47) and was able to score just over the 55.5 Virginia had allowed all season in leading the nation in that statistic. The Spartans, who started the season 18-1 and spent three weeks at No. 1 in the AP Top 25, shot 52.3 percent in their last four games. The Spartans started the game doing what teams just don’t against Virginia – make shots. Michigan State made eight of its first 12 from the field in taking a 21-11 lead with 9:46 left in the first half. The Cavaliers allowed teams to shoot 38.6 percent from the field for the season.

Daniels leads Huskies past Cyclones By RACHEL COHEN The Associated Press NEW YORK – DeAndre Daniels’ UConn teammates were going to keep passing him the ball until he cooled off. By the time that happened, it was too late for Iowa State. Daniels scored 19 of his 27 points in the second half, and the Huskies hung on for an 8176 victory Friday to reach the East Regional final a year after UConn was barred from the NCAA tournament. “DeAndre’s a scorer, and once you feel that you have that confidence, the next shot’s going to go in,” said senior Shabazz Napier, who knows a thing or two about scoring

himself. “We kept feeding him, and he got super hot.” Daniels hit his first six shots after halftime, the only Husky to make a field goal for over 8½ minutes. His 3-pointer gave seventh-seeded UConn a 49-32 lead. The third- DeAndre s e e d e d C y - Daniels clones rallied late, pulling within 67-63 with 2½ minutes remaining. But senior Niels Giffey hit a 3 in the corner for his first points since the game’s opening moments, and when the Huskies (29-8) made their free throws in the final minute, the UConn

fans packing Madison Square Garden could celebrate. The Huskies will face fourth-seeded Michigan State on Sunday for a trip to the Final Four. Dustin Hogue scored a career-high 34 points for Iowa State (28-8), but Big 12 player of the year Melvin Ejim was 3 of 13 for seven points, more than 11 below his average. The Cyclones, in the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 2000, were playing their second game without third-leading scorer Georges Niang, who broke his foot in their tournament opener. They trailed by 16 with less than 7½ minutes to go but nearly came all the way back

behind Hogue’s scoring inside. “That’s who these guys are, they’re fighters,” coach Fred Hoiberg said. With UConn clinging to a 70-65 lead and less than a minute left, Iowa State’s Naz Long missed a 3-pointer, and the 6-foot-1 Napier pulled down the rebound and was fouled by Hogue. The guard calmly drilled both free throws. Napier drained four early 3-pointers, then made only one more field goal the rest of the way. But the quick start by Napier and backcourt mate Ryan Boatright opened up space for the 6-foot-9 Daniels, an inconsistent junior who can score all over the court when he’s on.

Vols limited Wolverines to 1 basket in game’s last 3:40 • NCAA TOURNEY Continued from page C1

AP photo

Michigan State forward Adreian Payne reacts during the first half in a regional semifinal against Virginia at the NCAA men’s basketball tournament Friday night in New York. The Spartans won, 61-59.

For some reason, Michigan went into panic mode and, just two weeks after nearly blowing two big leads in the Big Ten tournament, it nearly threw this one away. The Volunteers’ staunch defense limited Michigan to only one basket in the final 3:40 and forced four turnovers in the final 97 seconds to give themselves a chance in the closing seconds. “I don’t think I fouled him,”

said Stokes, who had 11 points and six rebounds after two straight double-doubles. “But it was a smart play for him to try to take the charge. He pretty much anticipated it.” Just as Beilein had predicted. For most of the night, Michigan relied on its shooting stars to stay in control against a defense that had allowed just 54.0 points in its previous eight games. The Wolverines took a 13-point lead in the first half and still led 45-34 at halftime because they were shooting 61.5 percent from the field

and made 7 of 9 on 3-pointers. Michigan didn’t slow down early in the second half, either, taking the biggest lead of the game at 60-45. But somehow Tennessee played itself right back into the game. The 11th-seeeded Vols, who had a first-round game in overtime at Dayton, Ohio, just to start their surprising postseason run, cut the deficit to 62-56 with 6:45 left. They got within 72-67 when McRae completed a three-point play with 1:56 to go. They made it 72-69 when Josh Richardson scored the

last of his 19 points on a layup with 24.6 seconds left. McRae’s layup following another Michigan turnover made it 72-71 with 10.8 seconds remaining. So when the officials ruled Michigan’s Caris LeVert caught the ball with one foot on the baseline and 9.6 seconds left, Martin made the smart call by giving Stokes a chance to win it with a basket or draw the foul. “We got the ball to Jarnell. Jordan set a screen for him to get him right to isolate him, attack him in the middle,” Martin explained. “Obviously we got the ball where we wanted.”

Family plays key role in Colter’s union push Northwestern to appeal players union ruling By JAY COHEN and TIM REYNOLDS The Associated Press CHICAGO – Kain Colter’s grandmother often spoke about rights and equality, values she brought home from her job managing an office of a Colorado law firm. Those conversations planted a seed for Colter, who would go on to become a quarterback at Northwestern University – and the face of an exploding movement to give college athletes the right to form unions and bargain. “He understands that he’s been put on this earth to serve people,” Colter’s father, Spencer, said. From an esteemed athletic career at Cherry Creek High School in suburban Denver all the way to a football revival at Northwestern, Colter has accumulated a list of admirers who rave about his leadership and intelligence. After a decision this week by a regional director of the National Labor Relations board who said full scholarship players can be considered employees of the university, he also could leave a legacy as the athlete who formed the foundation of a dramatic overhaul of college sports that potentially could give athletes a chance to fight for a piece of an industry that generates billions based on their performance.

ees of the university. “Unionization and collective bargaining are not the appropriate methods to address the concerns these students are raising,” Alan Cubbage, Northwestern’s vice president for university relations, said Friday in a statement. “The life of a student-athlete is extremely demanding, but the academic side and the athletic side are inextricably linked.” To see Colter have success in what was once an unthinkable proposition in college sports comes of no surprise to some of the people who know him best. “Whatever he chooses to do, he can do it, and I mean that sincerely,” Cherry Creek basketball coach Mike Brookhart said. “He’s just one of those kids that gets it and has it.” Growing up, Colter was regarded as one of the top prep athletes in Colorado. Listed at 6-foot and 195 pounds, he played point guard on the basketball team and competed in the long jump and triple jump for track and field. But he had his greatest success on the football field, following in the footsteps of his father, who was a safety on Colorado’s 1990 national championship team, and his uncle, Cleveland Colter, who was an All-America safety at Southern California. Kain Colter helped the Bruins reach the state championship game during his junior year, accounting for 31 touchdowns. “He was one of the more respected kids at school,” said Brookhart, who coached Colter in football and basketball. “He was a great leader.”

“Looking out for people and making sure people are treated fairly has always been in our family morals,” Colter said in an interview with The Associated Press in Bradenton, Fla., where he is training for the NFL draft. “Obviously, people come from different backgrounds and different situations, but everybody deserves to be treated fairly and they deserve basic rights and basic protections.” Colter’s grandmother, Betty Flagg, died last month and was buried in some of his Northwestern gear. She only Kain Colter watched TV when the Wildcats were playing. Colter, 21, said he thinks his grandmother would be proud of his role in the unionization effort. “We were talking at the funeral and they were telling stories about how she came from picking cotton to working as an office manager in the firm,” he said. The attorney at the firm described how she fought for certain employees to receive fair bonuses for their work. “She was doing that, fighting for their rights and fighting for them to be treated fairly, basically,” Colter said. Colter never will benefit from a union if one is formed, but was thrilled by the decision that moved the issue forward. Northwestern immediately said it would appeal the decision to labor authorities in Washington, D.C., and the NCAA came out strongly against the ruling classifying athletes as employ-

Port Edward founder Edward Wolowiec has had careers exploring the oceans as a diver in salvage expeditions and in music, both as a performer and teacher. Wolowiec designed and supervised the building of Port Edward Restaurant. It opened in 1964 on the Fox River and is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. See more photos at

Half-century voyage Port Edward Restaurant celebrates golden anniversary By JOSEPH BUSTOS ALGONQUIN – Inside of the Port Edward Restaurant at Harrison Street and Algonquin Road are former church pews used for booths, an old ships’ wheels, harpoons, a sperm whale’s jaw bone, divers’ helmets and a diver’s suit and boots hanging on the walls. Pulley systems divide booths, and lobster traps hang over tables. There’s even a 25-foot sailboat where people can eat dinner. “So many of the artifacts on display are museum quality. They’re antiques,” said Port Edward Assistant General Manager Charles Kaskadden Jr. The many sea-related artifacts are part of the decor of the restaurant, which this year is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Port Edward is planning events, such as wine tastings and cooking classes, throughout the year to mark the milestone. When owner Edward Wolowiec came to the area in 1960, he was a partner in the Anchor Lounge, which sits in the same location. Wolowiec eventually bought out his business partner and started Port Edward in 1964. Algonquin used to be a “meat and potatoes” town, Wolowiec said, and

The experienced diver however wanted to serve seafood. After making the change, the restaurant’s revenue dropped to almost nothing, Wolowiec said. However, there were predictions from the government that seafood consumption would increase. “With all my collections and nautical things, I put this whole thing together,” Wolowiec said. “That was the start of Port Edward.”

the cars in 2007. Spotting trends in the tens of thousands of complaints NHTSA gets each year is a tough job, and this case may have been more complicated than most. The Cobalt had a litany of problems, including fuel leaks, and a power steering defect that the agency did investigate. GM may not have disclosed all the information it had on the switches. And the 2010 recall of millions of Toyotas for unintended acceleration claimed much of the government’s attention.

Margie Beskau, of Woodville, Wis., talks about her teenage daughter, Amy Rademaker, at a house in Hammond, Wis. Rademaker was killed in an October 2006 crash involving a Chevy Cobalt, which has been reported to stall without warning. NHTSA to testify on April 1-2 about why it took so long for owners to be told there was a potentially deadly defect in their cars. Although the overall number of complaints represents only 0.02 percent of the nearly 625,000 Cobalts sold from 2005-2007 in the U.S., experts familiar with NHTSA say they were enough to warrant an investigation and recall. The Cobalt had about the same rate of complaints as the Corolla. And the agency knew of at least two fatalities in Cobalt crashes that involved a sudden stall when it first declined to investigate

WASHINGTON – U.S. consumer sentiment slipped in March from the previous month, as Americans said they were less likely to buy cars and homes because of slightly higher interest rates. The University of Michigan says its consumer sentiment index dipped to 80 in March from 81.6 in February. That’s still about five points higher than last fall, when sentiment fell during the government shutdown. The index was 82.5 in December. Economists say the figures suggest confidence didn’t take a big hit during the harsh winter.

Safety agency missed Cobalt clues DETROIT – For years, the U.S. government’s auto safety watchdog sent form letters to worried owners of the Chevrolet Cobalt and other General Motors small cars, saying it didn’t have enough information about problems with unexpected stalling to establish a trend or open an investigation. The data tells a different story. An Associated Press review of complaints to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that over a nine-year period, 164 drivers reported that their 20052007 Chevrolet Cobalts stalled without warning. That was far more than any of the car’s competitors from the same model years, except for the Toyota Corolla, which was recalled after a government investigation in 2010. Stalling was one sign of the ignition switch failure that led GM last month to recall 1.6 million Cobalts and other compact cars, including the Saturn Ion, Pontiac G5 and Chevrolet HHR. GM has linked the problem to at least 12 deaths and dozens of crashes. The company says the switch can slip out of the “run” position, which causes the car to stall, knocks out the power steering and disables the air bags. GM has recently acknowledged it knew the switch was defective at least a decade ago, and the government started receiving complaints about the 2005 Cobalt just months after it went on sale. House and Senate subcommittees have called the current heads of the automaker and

DETROIT – The U.S. government’s auto safety watchdog has closed an investigation into Tesla electric car battery fires after the company said it would install more shields beneath the cars. The shields, an aluminum bar, a titanium plate and another piece of aluminum, will supplement a quarter-inch-thick aluminum plate now on the Model S, the only model that Tesla now sells. They’re designed to stop road debris from penetrating the car’s battery pack. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began investigating the Model S last year after two battery fires that were caused by road debris. In each case, one near Nashville, Tenn., and another near Seattle, debris punctured the aluminum shield and the battery, touching off fires. Drivers were able to safely pull off the road and escape without injury, but the cars were destroyed. Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in a statement Friday the company will retrofit Model S cars sold in the U.S. with the new shields, at no cost to owners. At the end of February, Tesla had sold about 22,000 of the cars in the U.S., according to Autodata Corp. The additional shields will be provided upon owner request or as part of normally scheduled service, the statement said. The move is not a recall, a Tesla spokeswoman said.

Some experts say recall should have happened sooner • CLUES Continued from page E1 But several experts say NHTSA should have pressed for a recall sooner. “They’re not connecting up the dots. That’s the generous explanation,” said Clarence Ditlow, executive director of the Washington-based Center for Auto Safety, who has studied the government’s auto safety agency for decades. “The not-sogenerous is that they did connect the dots but they just didn’t do anything.” U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, whose department oversees auto safety, has asked for an internal investigation into the GM issue. In a letter calling for the probe, Foxx said he is unaware of information that NHTSA “failed to properly carry out its safety mission based on the data available to it and the processes followed.” The safety agency, in a statement provided to the AP, said that during the past seven years, its investigations have brought 929 recalls of more than 55 million vehicles. “Each potential recall investigation is unique and dependent on the data gathered in each case,” it said. Foxx has said that GM didn’t give the government enough information on the defective switches. In papers submitted to the safety agency last month, GM says engineers proposed solutions to the problem in early 2005, but the company didn’t take action, developments unknown to the safety agency at the time. But the AP analysis makes clear that even without that information, NHTSA had evidence in 2005 that the switches were a problem. That summer, the agency hired a contractor to look into a July 29, 2005, crash in Maryland that killed 16-year-old Amber Marie Rose. The report concluded that the air bags of Rose’s 2005 Cobalt did not inflate, and the ignition switch had moved from the run position to “accessory,” which runs devices like the radio but not the engine. Alcohol and speed also were factors, the report said. Rose’s birth mother, Laura Christian, said that after the crash, she studied the govern-

All three were killed in separate car crashes involving GM’s Cobalt during 2005-2006. ment’s complaint database and found multiple problems with engine stalling and power steering failures on other Cobalts. She tried to tell NHTSA, but the agency wasn’t interested, she said. “Basically, it was ‘No, thank you,’” Christian said. “NHTSA should have known, based on the information I have seen, certainly in 2006.” An agency spokesman said he was looking into Christian’s claim. The evidence kept mounting: • In December 2005, General Motors sent the safety agency and its dealers a service bulletin telling them that drivers could inadvertently turn off the ignition switch with minimal effort in Cobalts from the 2005 and 2006 model years. Dealers were told about repairs and to tell drivers reporting engine shutdowns to remove unnecessary items from their key chains. • In October 2006, GM sent the agency and dealers another service bulletin, adding Cobalts from the 2007 model year. • In 2007, the government commissioned a report on a 2006 Wisconsin crash that killed two teenage girls and injured another. In that report, Indiana University’s Transportation Research Center found that the ignition in the 2005 Cobalt was in the “accessory” position and the air bags failed to inflate. Investigators told the agency that “inadvertent contact with the ignition switch or a key chain in the 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt can in fact result in engine shutdown and loss of power.” • In 2007 and later in 2010, NHTSA’s Office of Defects In-

vestigations examined data on stalling incidents and air bag failures in GM cars. Yet the agency recently told House members it was unable to spot trends that were significant when compared with “peer vehicles” or the U.S. passenger car fleet, according to a letter released earlier this month by the House Energy and Commerce Committee. But Ditlow said comparisons with peers are less important than simply watching the numbers and taking action when they get too high. “I don’t believe in innocence by association, that if you can find someone as bad as me, then I get off,” he said. “If you’re 50 percent worse, 25 percent worse, what’s the dividing line?” The complaint tally for the top-selling small cars in the 2005-2007 model years was: Corolla, 228; Cobalt, 164; Honda Civic, 60; Ford Focus, 25; and the Mazda 3, 19. The government opened an investigation into the Corolla in late 2009, which led to the 2010 recall of nearly 1.3 million cars to replace faulty engine control modules that could make the cars stall without warning. The agency investigated the Toyota complaints even though there were no reports of deaths or injuries related to the stalls. By contrast, it had already learned about deadly crashes in the Cobalt. The Wisconsin crash, which happened on a rural road at 7:55 p.m. Oct. 26, 2006, killed Natasha Weigel, 18, and Amy Rademaker, 15. The driver, Megan Phillips, then 17, was severely injured. Margie Beskau, Rademak-

er’s mother, blames NHTSA for not recalling the cars beforehand. “You have all these reports on this car. They should have done their job,” she said. Phillips remembers little of the crash and still suffers from brain damage. She does recall that everything in the car shut down, according to her attorney, Robert Hilliard of Texas, who represents 12 people killed in GM cars when the air bags failed to inflate. Hilliard says NHTSA doesn’t have the cash, the staff or the legal resources to match the automakers. “It’s a poor watchdog of a very powerful industry,” he said. NHTSA says it screens around 40,000 complaints a year. There is no set number for starting an investigation, but it considers complaints, injuries and deaths, warranty data submitted by automakers and other factors. Sometimes NHTSA acts quickly. For example, the agency is investigating electric car maker Tesla Motors after just two reports of vehicle fires and no injuries. It also began investigating older model Porsche 911 sports cars for coolant leaks last year based on 10 complaints and no injuries. That probe was closed without finding a safety defect. When the Cobalt ignition problems surfaced in 2005, the agency was still building its consumer complaint database, so the Cobalt stalling data could have been overlooked, said a person familiar with the agency, who asked not to be identified because of the Congressional investigation.

Port Edward turns 50 • PORT EDWARD Continued from page E1 “We’ll have our basic core menu items and introduce things that are seasonal,” Wolowiec said. “Right now, sustainability is a big thing. We’ve pulled off on sword fish, and run the rainbow trout, and the ever-popular tilapia that’s all farm raised. That’s sustainable.” Wolowiec became interested in the restaurant business as he traveled while playing in bands. The flute player would hang out in kitchens of different venues to learn about the industry. When he taught music in Chicago, the father of one of his students brought him to Algonquin. “The view just got me, it was beautiful,” Wolowiec said. Over the years, the restaurant has expanded from the original 50-by-70foot building to a 22,000- to 25,000-square-foot business over two stories next to the Fox River. In the basement, there is a wine cellar and gift shop. The restaurant seats up to 450 people, and goes up to 500 people when it’s warm enough to add outside seating. Even though seafood generally is a pricier meal, the restaurant keeps most entrées less than $30, and the restaurant wants to encourage people to come in when it’s not a special day. “So many people think Port Edward is a special occasion. We want that connotation to go to the side a little bit,” Kaskadden said. “We

“The word I use a lot is ‘respect.’ There should be more talk about that.” Ed Wolowiec Port Edward owner want people to come to all of our events, when we’ve introduced a new special, or we’re having a wine dinner. We want people to come in and join us just because.” It’s a place where people may wear jeans, a button down shirt and suit jacket, but it’s nothing that is enforced, Kaskadden said. However, they to do steer people away from swimming gear. The table cloths and white napkins help reinforce the restaurant as being casual fine dining. “We don’t want people to think it’s so expensive they only go once or twice a year,” Kaskadden said. The restaurant has 80 to 85 employees. That number increases to about 90 in the summer when the restaurant sets up outside seating. “Some of our employees have been with us ... for four or five decades,” Kaskadden said. Wolowiec said having perseverance and people who share his vision as among the things that have helped keep the restaurant strong. “The word I use a lot is ‘respect,’” Wolowiec said. “There should be more talk about that, from the people who are the dishwashers, to the assistant general manager.”

W. Somerset Maugham said, “It’s asking a great deal that things should appeal to your reason as well as to your sense of the aesthetic.” Bridge deals are sometimes aesthetic, but the right answer to all of them can usually be found by applying reason. In today’s deal, what is the reasonable approach for South in four hearts after West leads the club queen? North used a transfer bid followed by a jump to three no-trump to show the values for game with exactly ive hearts and, probably, a balanced hand. Here, South would have done best to pass, but it is hard to quibble with opting for the eightcard major-suit it. (Note that the transfer did its job. Four hearts by North goes down if East leads the spade queen.) Taken in isolation, declarer would inesse in hearts. But here a heart inesse ought to be fatal. East would win with his queen and should shift to the spade queen. Not wanting a spade lead through his king, declarer should try to keep East off the lead. South wins the irst

trick and cashes dummy’s two top hearts. When the queen does not drop, he turns to the diamonds. Yes, East ruffs the fourth round, but declarer has discarded one of dummy’s spades, so loses only one heart and two spades. Note that if West has queen-third of hearts, South’s play costs only an overtrick. And if East can ruff the second or third diamond, declarer is still all right when East either does not switch to spades or holds the spade ace. Always take the full deal into account.

TODAY - The more you speak about your plans, the better. The response you receive will help shape important decisions. Cast aside any doubts you may be feeling and plunge into positive forward motion. Be proactive to achieve the success you crave. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t allow frustration and disappointment to cause problems at home or work. Actions speak louder than words. Despite the situation, do what needs to be done. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If your intentions are sincere, you will gather support for your plans. You may face some criticism, but, in time, others will respect your efforts and applaud your determination. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Confusing changes may be occurring within an important partnership. You may feel you are being pulled in several directions. It’s OK to say no if you feel stressed or unsure. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are in need of a change. Break out of your routine. Travel, enroll in an interesting course, engage in recreational activity or take time to reconnect with an old friend. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A minor disagreement or misunderstanding can cause a delay in your plans. Make your intentions clear, without criticism or accusations, in order to get back on track quickly. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don’t let a procrastinator hold you back. Ask questions and be open and flexible where change is concerned. Scrutinize documents and proceed with your plans. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You’ll be stressed out by too many obligations. Don’t be a pushover. Say no to anyone asking for too much or urging you to do something that isn’t in your best interest. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Someone may be trying to undermine your achievements. Remember to speak up and set the record straight. Taking a firm stance will help you to stay focused and in control. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You may be thrown off balance by an unexpected obstacle. Pay attention to the actions of others before making a move. Don’t commit to anything without considering the outcome. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A change in your routine will provide a new path of achievement. Keep an open mind. Consider all the options and choose the one with the most benefits. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Take the helpful advice that someone is giving you. Change is only possible if you allow new ideas to take hold. Clinging to past behaviors and practices will keep you from moving ahead. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Have confidence in your plans, and continue down your chosen path. With some positive input and a creative idea, you can make your dreams a reality.

By Dr. M. Shakeel LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO NOT FULLY ENJOY EACH AND EVERY REASON TO SMILE If you find yourself avoiding family photos, first impressions or even savoring your favorite foods, Dr. Shakeel’s unique dental implant techniques offer the solutions you’ve been searching for. The All-On-Four Dental Implants procedure - Teeth in a Day - offers simple, reliable and long-lasting results for patients who are missing teeth or experiencing the frustrations of loose, decayed and broken teeth. Though advanced technology and innovative techniques, dental implants are easier to place, less invasive and have a successful rate of over 95%.

WHY DR. SHAKEEL? With years of experience in the field, Dr. Shakeel is a highly respected expert in the placement and restoration of dental implants from a single missing tooth to the entire upper and lower arch. His background in dental implant surgery provides a strong foundation that ensures medically safe and aesthetically beautiful results. Furthermore, Dr. Shakeel received extensive hands-on training and assisted with numerous successful cases, under the guidance of the pioneer of the All-on-Four procedure, Dr. Paulo Malo of Portugal (2010). Few in the dental industry possess his mastery of the combined surgical and prosthetic demands of successful implant dentistry, especially executing the All-On-Four procedure. IDEAL PATIENTS The All-On-Four technique is for patients dissatisfied with their current dentures or for those who have

no practical alternatives for saving their remaining teeth.

THE TEETH IN A DAY PROCESS This amazing technique enables you to achieve a beautiful, new Smile in a Day by utilizing four implants placed in each arch to which the replacement teeth are securely attached. Gentle oral sedation assures that you receive maximum safety and comfort throughout the procedure. In addition, the entire process, including any necessary extractions, can be completed in one day with minimal recovery time.The result is a fully functional set of teeth that look and feel natural, improves your self-confidence and allows you to once again experience the foods and activities you enjoy most.
