Software SCREENINGS flaw puts consumer info at risk Low-dose CT scan can detect lung cancer in its early stages

Internet users urged to change passwords By JIM DALLKE jdallke@shawmedia.com A recently discovered software vulnerability, which could be one of the biggest security threats the Internet has seen, has local banks and experts stressing the importance of changing your passwords. Sensitive information such as credit card numbers and website passwords have been exposed after it was discovered last week that a software vulnerability known as Heartbleed has gone undetected for more than two years. “This is one of the most severe we’ve seen as far as vulnerability is concerned,” said Triona Guidry, president of Guidry Consulting, a Cary-based firm. “We know it’s going to be widespread.

RYSTAL LAKE – By the end of the week, Ellen Jeffrey likely will know whether she has lung cancer. Jeffrey, a 59-year-old Huntley resident, took advantage of the free low-dose CT lung screenings offered at Centegra Health Center in Huntley last week and was told there was an abnormality in the images and a follow-up would be needed. She is hopeful it is the remnants of the valley fever she contracted while living in Arizona, but she knows the worst is possible after smoking for more than 30 years before quitting in 2008. “I think the spot they saw could be from the valley fever, but there is always a little anxiety,” Jeffrey said. “There is always that concern. You think you’re protected from things like this when you are younger, but you’re not.” Jeffrey is one of more than 370 people who have used the free screenings at Centegra, a procedure that usually costs $299. The program was scheduled to end in March after launching in November, but demand has been so great, it was extended through the end of April, Centegra spokeswoman Michelle Green said. By the end of March, 174 people received a diagnosis or were asked to return for more imaging in the future because of abnormal findings. “It’s been so successful, our physicians are

still considering other options,” Green said of continuing the program in some form after April. Because the low-dose CT lung screening uses radiation, the program is only available for those most at risk. Qualifications for the screening include being between 55 and 74 years old and having smoked one pack per day for 30 years or two packs per day for 15 years. While radiation exposure should be kept at a minimum, the screening is the only effective procedure to detect lung cancer, said Kevin Kirshenbaum, chairman of radiology at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington. Many lung cancer diagnoses come after it is in a late stage, and low-dose radiation screenings give physicians the chance to catch it early. “There is no great screening tool to detect early lung cancer. Chest X-rays can only do so

Questions linger year after Boston race bombing By DENISE LAVOIE The Associated Press BOSTON – A surveillance video shows a man prosecutors say is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev placing a bomb near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, just yards from where an 8-year-old boy was killed when it exploded. A hand-scrawled confession condemning U.S. actions in Muslim countries was found on the inside wall of the boat where Tsarnaev was captured four frantic days later. A year after twin pressure-cooker bombs shattered the marathon and paralyzed the area for days, federal prosecutors say they have a trove of evidence ready to use against the surviving suspect, but many questions remain.

What roles did Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his older brother, Tamerlan, play in planning and orchestrating the attack? Would they really have launched a second attack in New York? Did federal authorities underreact to a warning from Russia that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was becoming radicalized? With Tamerlan Tsarnaev killed in a police shootout days after the attack, some of those questions may never be fully answered. “The obvious one is the motivation and how could two young men who were in a country that, from all appearances, was very good to them end up this radical,” said former Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis, who helped lead the investigation.

Madigan steps into media spotlight A long time ago, I asked Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan why he never golfed at his golf outing fundraisers. Madigan explained that he was a terrible golfer. If people saw him embarrassing himself badly on the golf course, they might take a dimmer view of him as a leader. He has applied this lesson to just about everything he does. He examines every angle before he acts. As a result, he rarely fails, but something else has been happening over the past year or so. Madigan has become a media hound. It started after the House passed the gay marriage bill. It wasn’t an easy task, and Madigan publicly took the credit for its passage. A few months later, he took the lion’s share of the credit for passing pension reform. Then, out of the blue, he proposed a 50 percent cut in the corporate income

VIEWS Rich Miller tax rate. He got a ton of media coverage, but he hasn’t followed up on it. Madigan also was working behind the scenes on a constitutional amendment to impose a 3 percent surcharge on income over a million dollars. But then Madigan went ahead with his own announcement of the proposal. It was referred to in media reports as “Madigan’s millionaire tax.” At the time, Madigan said he’d done his homework and had talked to his members before announcing his proposal. The constitutional amendment required a three-fifths super majority, so Madigan would need every one of his Democrats if he couldn’t lock down any House Republican votes.

Rep. Jack Franks, a Democrat who prides himself on never voting for tax hikes, offered tentative early support that was tied to allowing the 2011 income tax hike to expire. Just days later, Madigan publicly supported keeping the tax hike permanent. Rep. Franks said he told the Speaker that he couldn’t back the proposed constitutional amendment a couple weeks ago. Madigan asked for time to try and find GOP votes. In the meantime, other Democrats went off the reservation, including Rep. Scott Drury, who issued a press release last week announcing his opposition. The momentum was going too fast the other way, so the plug was pulled. Madigan, through a spokesman, blamed the Republicans for the proposal’s defeat. As it turns out, Madigan simply bit off more than he could chew. His proposal failed, but he sure got a lot of

publicity about it, much of it favorable. And, hey, lemons into lemonade. Pro-business groups such as Americans for Prosperity Illinois offered praise for Drury, who faces a Republican opponent in November. That’ll surely make Drury more palatable to tax sensitive business owners in his district. And the proposal put Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner in a difficult spot. Rauner flatly opposed the tax, while leaving open the possibility that he could favor taxing retirement income and services. It didn’t make him look good. Maybe this is all part of some grand scheme. But right now it sure looks like James Bond has gone tabloid.

NEW YORK – The Washington Post and The Guardian won the Pulitzer Prize in public service Monday for revealing the U.S. government’s sweeping surveillance programs in a blockbuster series of stories based on secret documents supplied by NSA leaker Edward Snowden. The Pulitzer for breaking news was awarded to The Boston Globe for its “exhaustive and empathetic” coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing and the manhunt that followed. Two of the nation’s biggest and most distinguished news-

between privacy and security, and that discussion is still going on,” said Sig Gissler, administrator of the Pulitzer Prizes. The NSA stories were written by Barton Gellman at The Washington Post and Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Ewen MacAskill, whose work was published by The Guardian US, the British newspaper’s American operation, based in New York. “I think this is amazing news,” Poitras said. “It’s a testament to Snowden’s courage, a vindication of his courage and his desire to let the public know what the government is

doing.” Snowden, a former contract employee at the NSA, has been charged with espionage and other offenses in the U.S. and could get 30 years in prison if convicted. He has received asylum in Russia. In a statement issued by the Freedom of the Press Foundation, Snowden saluted “the brave reporters and their colleagues who kept working in the face of extraordinary intimidation, including the forced destruction of journalistic materials, the inappropriate use of terrorism laws, and so many other means of pressure to get them to stop.”

Quinn tour of state highlights topic of taxes By DON BABWIN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Gov. Pat Quinn’s tour of the state to push his program aimed at helping first-time homebuyers quickly turned political Monday as both he and his Republican gubernatorial opponent wasted no time highlighting likely recurring themes in the 2014 race: wealth and taxes. In four planned appearances, Quinn sought to promote his “Welcome Home Illinois” program, which would help first-time homebuyers make

down payments on homes and secure lower mortgage rates. In Chicago, the first event, Quinn said the program would “help families who don’t have political action committees, who don’t have lobbyists, who don’t have millions of dollars to buy more than one home.” It was a not-so-subtle reminder that his GOP challenger, Bruce Rauner, is a wealthy venture capitalist who owns multiple homes. Before Quinn had stopped talking, Rauner’s campaign had responded in a statement, dismissing the housing pro-

gram as old news – the latest of three such programs that have been launched, another by Quinn and one by predecessor Rod Blagojevich. Rauner’s campaign also used Quinn’s speaking tour Gov. Pat to raise ques- Quinn tions about whether the governor might soon allow property taxes to be raised in Chicago and thus hurt people he says he’s trying to help. The Illinois Legisla-

ture has sent the governor a bill that would allow the city to overhaul two city pension programs, partly through such a tax hike. “Will he break his promises again and again and allow Chicago property taxes to rise?” Rauner’s campaign statement asked. Quinn again Monday gave no hint whether he will sign or veto the bill, saying only that he is continuing to study it. Quinn has broadly railed against raising property taxes, and reiterated Monday his decades-long devotion to cut-

ting property taxes. Mayor Rahm Emanuel is hoping to use the bill to push for local approval of the tax increase, even though the provision that explicitly called for the increase was stripped from the bill after Quinn said he would not support it. Quinn also stopped in Rockford and Moline and was scheduled to visit Bartonville late Monday afternoon. The proposal to offer firsttime homebuyers $7,500 for down payments and interest rates as low as 3.75 percent for a 30-year fixed-rate mort-

Daley nephew released from McHenry County Jail WOODSTOCK – A nephew of former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley has been released from jail after serving a 60-day sentence. The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office reported that 39-year-old Richard J. Vanecko of Costa Mesa, Calif., was released Monday afternoon. Vanecko pleaded guilty in January to involuntary manslaughter in the death of a man he got into a fight with outside a bar in 2004. Vanecko entered the plea as part of a deal with a special prosecutor. In exchange, he was sentenced to 60 days in the McHenry County Jail followed by 60 days of home confinement. He also was ordered to pay $20,000 in restitution.

Congressional report asks for e-cigarette rules RICHMOND, Va. – A new Congressional report said concerns about electronic cigarettes underscore the need to regulate the fast-growing industry. The report released Monday highlights several issues including an array of flavors and marketing that could appeal to young people, the lack of age restrictions and no uniform warning labels. It was written by the staff of Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, California Rep. Henry Waxman and others. Electronic cigarettes are battery-powered devices that heat a nicotine solution and create vapor that’s inhaled.

Blast at bus station in Nigerian capital kills 72 ABUJA, Nigeria – Suspected Islamic militants struck in the heart of Nigeria on Monday with a massive rush-hour bomb blast at a bus station that killed at least 72 people and wounded 164 in the deadliest attack ever on the nation’s capital. There was only believed to be one blast with secondary explosions as vehicle fuel tanks ignited and burned. Authorities said the death toll was sure to climb because it did not include victims whose bodies were dismembered, the health ministry said. Visiting the blast scene, President Goodluck Jonathan blamed Boko Haram, the homegrown terrorist network that has targeted schools, churches, mosques, villages and government facilities, killing thousands in its five-year campaign to make Nigeria an Islamic state.

Malaysia jet search area too deep for submarine PERTH, Australia – The search area for the missing Malaysian jet has proved too deep for a robotic submarine which was hauled back to the surface of the Indian Ocean less than half way through its first seabed hunt for wreckage and the all-important black boxes, authorities said Tuesday. What if anything it might have discovered during the six-hour search was still being analyzed, the search coordination center said in a statement on Tuesday. The Bluefin 21 will resume the search Tuesday when weather conditions permit, it said.

gage is the “most aggressive program in state history to encourage home ownership by everyday people,” Quinn said in Chicago. Illinois Housing Development Authority spokeswoman Cami Freeman disputed the Rauner campaign’s contention after Quinn’s Chicago appearance. While there have been similar programs in Illinois the past, including those that help veterans, Freeman said this new program offers a better interest rate and a larger down payment than other programs.

Pro-Russian men storm a police station Monday in the eastern Ukrainian town of Horlivka. Several government buildings have fallen to mobs of Moscow loyalists in recent days as unrest spreads across the east of the country.

Ukraine struggles as east rises The ASSOCIATED PRESS HORLIVKA, Ukraine – The fuel is local, but the matches are Russian. That in a nutshell is how the insurgency threatening the survival of Ukraine as a unified state is increasingly unfolding. Over the past 10 days, more than a dozen government offices in eastern Ukraine have been taken over by pro-Russian forces, with most of the seizures following the same pattern. Aggressive gangs, sometimes carrying firearms and wearing military fa-

tigues, storm the buildings. The Ukrainian flag is replaced with a Russian one. Then local men move in to hold them. Those capturing the buildings insist they are carrying out the will of the people and have demanded a referendum on autonomy for the eastern Donetsk region. Relatively small numbers have hit the streets in support, however, and it is increasingly evident the purported uprising is far from spontaneous and is being carried out with unerring coordination. Russia has tens of thou-

sands of troops massed along Ukraine’s eastern border. Western governments accuse Moscow of fueling the unrest and worry that the specter of bloodshed could be used as a pretext for a Russian invasion, in a repeat of events in Crimea a few weeks ago. The Ukrainian government’s inability to quash the pro-Russian insurgency was highlighted by acting President Oleksandr Turchynov’s call Monday for the deployment of United Nations peacekeeping troops in the east of his country.

He said the presence of Russian meddling was clear in the unrest gripping his country. “The Russian Federation is sending special units to the east of our country, which seize administrative buildings with the use of weapons and are putting the lives of hundreds of thousands of our citizens in danger,” Turchynov said, according to the presidential web-site. Peacekeepers, however, would have to be authorized by the U.N. Security Council, where Russia holds a veto.

Leak delays launch to space station The ASSOCIATED PRESS CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – A space station cargo ship will remain Earthbound for a while longer because of a rocket leak. With just over an hour remaining, the SpaceX company called off Monday’s planned launch. Officials said they believe the problem can be fixed by Friday, the next opportunity for flying and the last chance before astronauts do urgent spacewalking repairs. A helium leak in the first stage of the unmanned Falcon rocket forced a halt to the countdown, the latest delay spanning the past month. Over the weekend, NASA almost postponed the launch attempt because of a computer outage at the International Space Station. But mission managers decided Sunday that everything

NASA postponed on Monday the planned launch of a supply ship because of a helium leak, the latest delay spanning the past month. would be safe for the arrival of the Dragon capsule and its 2½ tons of supplies. The computer, a critical backup, failed outside the space station Friday as flight controllers were trying to activate it for a

routine software load. The primary computer has been working fine. It’s the first breakdown ever of one of these so-called space station MDMs, or multiplexer-demultiplexers, used to route computer com-

mands for a wide variety of systems. Forty-five MDMs are scattered around the orbiting lab. The failed one is located outside and therefore will require spacewalking repairs. The Dragon capsule holds a gasket-like material for next week’s computer replacement. This new material was rushed to the launch site over the weekend and loaded into the Dragon. NASA said astronauts can make the repair without it if necessary. NASA astronauts Rick Mastracchio and Steven Swanson will perform the spacewalk next Tuesday – regardless of whether the Dragon flies by then. It will take several days to get the replacement computer ready, thus the one-week wait before the job, NASA’s Kenny Todd, a station operations manager, said Monday.

SPRINGFIELD – Increasing fuel taxes to pay for Illinois road construction will hurt businesses – and hit consumers at the pump, gas station owners said Monday. A transportation advocacy group wants to hike the motor fuel tax by 4 cents a gallon as a way to fund a new statewide road-building program that would replace a $31 billion, five-year program expiring this year. The last time the motor fuel tax was increased to benefit transportation purposes was 1990. But gasoline retailers say the answer is not a tax hike, particularly in a sour economy when gasoline already costs $4 a gallon. “This tax, as a retailer, would be pushed to the consumer. We as retailers live in penny profits and cannot afford to absorb this tax,” said Amy Chronister Ridley, vice president of Chronister Oil and Qik n EZ Convenience Stores, which operate in the Springfield area. Ridley appeared with other owners and the Illinois Petroleum Marketers Association at a state Capitol news conference. They oppose a plan by the Transportation for Illinois Coalition to keep the concrete flowing after this summer’s expiration of the Illinois Jobs Now construction program, which was adopted under Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn. The coalition proposed the changes in a plan unveiled this month: a 4-cent increase on gasoline, a 7-cent hike on diesel fuel, increasing vehicle registration fees, and broadening the sales tax to cover services such as auto work and car washes. The plan would also end the ethanol credit for gasoline. Members say the plan would produce $1.8 billion a year for roads, bridges and public transportation. “We need to put the brakes on any type of plan to raise the motor fuel tax. Drivers deserve a break, and business owners have suffered enough in recent years,” Bill Fleischli, vice president of the Illinois Petroleum Marketers Association, said Monday.

Army general upholds Manning’s conviction, sentence The ASSOCIATED PRESS An Army general has upheld Private Chelsea Manning’s conviction and 35-year prison sentence for giving reams of classified U.S. government information to the antisecrecy website WikiLeaks, the Army said Monday. The approval by Maj. Gen. Jeffery S. Buchanan, commander of the Military Dis-

trict of Washington, clears the way for an automatic appeal to the Army Court of Criminal Appeals. Manning’s appellate lawyers, Nancy Hollander and Vincent Ward, told supporters Sunday in Washington that they expect to argue that the sentence was unreasonable. It is the longest prison term ever given by a U.S. court for leaking government secrets to the media.

They also expect to argue that Manning’s speedy trial rights were violated, that the Espionage Act was misused and that high-ranking commanders improperly influenced her case. The 26-year-old Crescent, Okla., native, is serving her sentence at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. She was sentenced in August for six Espionage Act violations and 14 other offenses for leaking

more than 700,000 secret military and State Department documents, plus battlefield video, while working as an intelligence analyst in Iraq in 2009 and 2010. Buchanan, as commander of the jurisdiction where the trial was held, could have thrown out or reduced the court-martial results. He approved the findings Friday, the Military District of Washington said in a statement.

Emma Cape, campaign organizer for the Chelsea Manning Support Network, said Buchanan “has ignored the many grave injustices in this case.” She also called for protests of the Obama administration’s refusal to consider Manning’s request for presidential clemency until after the appeals have played out – a process that could take years.

Too early to determine extent of damage caused by flaw • SOFTWARE Continued from page A1 confirmed they were affected. A list of some common sites and whether they were affected can be found at http:// shawurl.com/13xk. Before consumers change their passwords, each affected site needs to update its servers with a security patch, which many already have done, Guidry said. Guidry said it’s too early to determine the extent of the damage caused by Heartbleed, but it likely will have lasting effects in the foreseeable future. “I think we’re still assessing the damage,” she said. “I think a lot of companies are still evaluating to see how vulnerable they are.” Guidry added that now is a good time to change your passwords regardless of whether your account is vulnerable to Heartbleed. Strong passwords are 12 characters long and have a combination of numbers, letters and symbols, she said. And each account should have its a unique password.

“Think of it as more of a pass phrase than a password,” Guidry said. “Don’t use common dictionary words. If you have a plain text password, it can be very easy to exploit.” Crystal Lake Bank and Community Trust sent out a message on its social media accounts last week encouraging customers to keep their online accounts safe by using strong and unique passwords. The bank also said its systems are closely monitored for vulnerabilities, and it has taken steps to ensure customer information is secure. Steven Finzel, president and CEO of Golden Eagle Community Bank in Woodstock, said that while his bank doesn’t use the open SSL encryption and isn’t vulnerable to Heartbleed, it’s still important to closely monitor your accounts and frequently change your passwords. “It’s a never-ending risk these days,” Finzel said. “You need to stay proactive. Track your account activity regularly.”

Screenings could prevent 20 percent more deaths • SCREENINGS Continued from page A1 much,” Kirshenbaum said. “This is really the only screening test for lung cancer, and it has tremendous potential upside.” That potentially could save many lives, according to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, which found low-dose CT lung screenings could prevent 20 percent more deaths from lung cancer than chest X-ray screenings. Jeffrey said it was a quick and painless process that took about 10 minutes to complete. She urged anyone eligible to take advantage of the program. “It was completely free, so it saved me and the insurance company money,” Jeffrey said. “You have to be proactive. No one is going to worry about your health except you.”

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh (right) chats with Nicole Boggio, of Severna Park, Md., at a sidewalk cafe Monday on Boylston Street near the finish line of the Boston Marathon in Boston. A year after twin pressure-cooker bombs shattered the marathon and paralyzed the area for days, federal prosecutors say they have a trove of evidence ready to use against the surviving suspect, but many questions remain.

Suspect has pleaded not guilty • BOSTON Continued from page A1 The bombings last April 15 killed three people and injured more than 260 near the finish line of one of the world’s most famous marathons. At least 16 people lost limbs. Dzhokhar has pleaded not guilty to a 30-count federal indictment that carries the possibility of the death penalty. The brothers, ethnic Chechens who lived in the former Soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan and the Dagestan region of Russia, settled in Cambridge, outside Boston, after moving to the U.S. as children with their family more than a decade ago. Dzhokhar’s defense team, which includes two of the nation’s top anti-death penalty lawyers, appear to be building a case that Tamerlan, 26, was the driving force behind the bombings. In court documents, they’ve focused on Dzhokhar’s young age – 19 at the time of the bombings – and the influence his older brother had on him. A congressional report released last month said U.S. intelligence agencies missed a chance to detain Tamerlan when he returned from a trip to Dagestan in July 2012. Russian authorities had warned the FBI in 2011 about Tsarnaev becoming radicalized. The FBI investigated, and his name was added to a terrorism watch list. But he was still able to fly to Dagestan – an area that has become the center of an Islamic insurgency – spend six months there and return to the United States. “There was not sufficient weight put on the information we got from Russia,” said U.S. Rep. William Keating, D-Mass., a member of the House Committee on Homeland Security. A separate report found that Russia was unresponsive when pressed by the FBI for more details. Three days after the bombings, the FBI released pho-

tos of the Tsarnaevs from surveillance video near the bombing sites. Hours later, authorities say, the brothers shot and killed a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer in an attempt to steal his gun, then carjacked a Cambridge man. “ ‘Where’s your money?’ ” carjacking victim Danny Meng said Tamerlan Tsarnaev demanded of him after jumping into his car and showing him a gun. What Meng thought would be a quick robbery became more terrifying when the man asked him whether he knew about the marathon bombings. “He said, ‘Do you know who did that? I did that.’ ” Meng said Tamerlan asked him, “Can your car drive out of state, like to New York?” A week later, former New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Dzhokhar Tsarnaev told investigators from his hospital bed that he and his brother decided that night to drive to New York City and launch a second attack. Meng escaped by running when the Tsarnaevs stopped at a gas station. Authorities said the brothers drove to nearby Watertown, where a wild gun battle with police erupted on a quiet side street, with the brothers shooting at officers and throwing three pipe bombs and one pressure-cooker bomb. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed, but Dzhokhar escaped on foot, leading to an unprecedented lockdown of Greater Boston. Dzhokhar, wounded from gunfire, was found later that day hiding in a drydocked boat in a backyard. Authorities said Dzhokhar wrote in pen on the inside wall of the boat explaining that the bombing was meant to punish America for its actions overseas. “The U.S. Government is killing our innocent civilians,” authorities say he wrote, and “Stop killing our innocent people and we will stop.”

Report offers reasonable approach Illinois long has had the most units of government in the nation – 6,963 at last count. Do we need so many taxing districts to provide governmental services across the Land of Lincoln? Supporters and opponents of the status quo can find something to cheer about in a 90-page report released recently by the Local Government Consolidation Commission, For the record which was created in 2011 by the IlThe report calls on the Leglinois General islature to review its laws so Assembly. that every taxing body in the Chaired by state has a legal mechanism, state Rep. Jack which does not contain unreaFranks, D-Marensonable barriers, to dissolve or go, the commisconsolidate. sion researched the situation and listened to local government officials. The report acknowledges those officials’ concerns that the state not mandate consolidation and elimination of units of government, such as townships, municipalities, fire protection districts, library districts, drainage districts, mosquito abatement districts and the like. In other words, let the decisions be made locally. The report also points out that “simply reducing the number of local governmental units does not necessarily result in a reduction of costs to the taxpayer,” which is a position long held by those who support the status quo. Both conclusions appear reasonable. Equally reasonable are other conclusions that bolster the side of people who think Illinois needs to cut back on its governmental units. The report found that the duties of some units of government overlap, and that it is very difficult or impossible to eliminate a unit of government, even when its purpose may no longer exist. As Franks stated: “In the private sector, if a company or a corporate division is no longer necessary, it is reconstituted, merged with another division, or eliminated. We need to apply that type of common sense to how we think about government in Illinois.” The report calls on the Legislature to review its laws so that every taxing body in the state has a legal mechanism, which does not contain unreasonable barriers, to dissolve or consolidate. One example was given of two contiguous library districts that are prevented from merging because they do not have the same limits on their tax levies. In conjunction with the report’s findings, Franks introduced a bill that would eliminate barriers to consolidation so that local governments that wish to merge have the legal authority to do so. We find that reasonable. Local governments, once established, should not exist in perpetuity with no way to get rid of them. We support the enactment of Franks’ legislation as a means to pare down the confusing layers of government so that, through greater clarity, the public can keep better watch over how its tax dollars are spent. We encourage people to consider the question: If Illinoisans started from scratch today, would we create 6,963 units of government to provide necessary services across the state, or would we do it differently? It’s entirely reasonable that a better, more efficient way could be found. Government officials would be wise to review the Local Government Consolidation Commission’s report and voluntarily investigate mergers before budgetary concerns make them a necessity.

Iowa courts keep pace In a decision that bolsters openness and transparency, the Iowa Supreme Court recently approved amendments to rules regarding audio and video recording and photography of courtroom procedures. The new amendments broaden the court’s definition of news media and allows for live electronic reporting, such as tweeting and blogging by media, provided there is advance approval from the presiding judge. We believe those amendments are in line with the expanded use of social media in all segments of society, including the jobs of collecting and disseminating information and news. The new rules take effect May 1. Iowa has a solid reputation of openness in its judicial branch of government. It was less than three years ago when we were arguing in support of the Cameras in the Courtroom Act, which would have required TV coverage of open sessions of the U.S. Supreme Court. Iowa was one of the states leading the way regarding television cameras in the courtrooms on a state basis, getting on board with that concept in 1979. Waterloo-Cedar Falls (Iowa) Courier

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Diaper Bank’s good work To the Editor: I had the privilege of seeing firsthand what the Diaper Bank does when I helped them out recently. When I saw how excited the mother of a chronically ill 30-yearold woman was to get diapers for her daughter, it really hit home for me. What the Diaper Bank does is so simple and so important. They give diapers away. They give them to the sick, the elderly, the disabled and to babies. The only help they get to do their work is from everyday people like us, who send them donations or give them diapers to give out. This is a great organization to help. They need us, because more people than you realize need them. Quentin Blome Woodstock

No more taxes To the Editor: I am against more tax increases and, in particular, the bill proposed raising the conservation district’s maximum tax rate. I, and other personal real estate property owners I have talked to, am not receiving personal income increases commensurate with the

increase in our property or other taxes and fees. One could argue, and in the past I have heard this already, that this increase only amounts to $50 a year on a $200,000 house or whatever. But if 10 of the taxing bodies all want the simple only $50 a year increase, that is an aggregate of $500. I, and most real estate property taxpayers, am not getting $500 in income increases to pay for these taxes. You’ve heard this before, but our real estate property values are declining, and our property taxes are increasing each year, because the individual taxing bodies keep raising their rates to make up the shortfall of income based on the reduced property values. If and when our real estate property assessed values increase, are those taxing bodies going to reduce those rates they imposed? I think not. Wonderful idea to preserve Camp Algonquin, but let donors fund the restoration, not taxpayers. Once restored and presumably open to the public, charge an admission fee and let the users of the camp pay for the upkeep, not

War on obesity To the Editor: Our legislators are back in session, and you’ll love this. Fully aware the citizenry can’t take care of themselves, state Rep. Robyn Gabel and state Sen. Mattie Hunter have introduced a bill in Springfield aimed at curbing obesity in the state. Their proposal: an excise tax on soft drinks, which would generate $600 million to be used for health care and fighting obesity. If this is not just another revenue stream for the state and Gabel and Hunter are serious about fighting obesity, let’s cut to the chase. Forget taxing soft drinks. Let’s

tax people by the pound. There’s already a vehicle in place, namely weigh stations, throughout the state. Set up bariatric centers at all existing weigh stations. Mandate a weigh-in for every man, woman and child every two years. Requiring weigh-ins every two years may seem a daunting task, but by using electric prodders and, in extreme cases, gaffing hooks, it could be done. Taxes would be based on medically recognized weight charts. A “fat tax” of a penny-a-pound over the accepted standard would then be levied regardless of race, gender or water retention. That’s how you wage the war on obesity and most likely solve the pension shortfall at the same time. Steve Moore Cary

Nothing wrong with selfie, even after stabbing When something awful happens, it is easier not to stare directly at it. Instead, we focus on the things around the edges. What did the neighbors hear? How was the play, Mrs. Lincoln? These days, those edges include what happened on social media afterward. What did they tweet? What did they Instagram? Who was the first to say the awful, snarky thing? What were the relevant status updates? Those pieces are almost but not quite the story, but they are easier to talk about. Something awful happened around 7 a.m. Wednesday at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, Pa. A student allegedly with two knives began stabbing and slashing people, injuring at least 22. Someone pulled the fire alarm. A security officer and assistant principal subdued the stabber, who is in custody. People were taken, in critical condition, to area hospitals. But for some people that wasn’t the story. The story was that a student, recovering in the hospital, posted a selfie. And somehow that was the appalling thing. “Where to start??” Amanda

VIEWS Alexandra Petri Lang tweeted in response to the article “Student posts hospital recovery selfie after stabbing” on the washingtonpost.com website. Other tweets included: “In case there are questions about western civilization being in decline.” “Wow.” “Oy.” “SMH.” “Too soon.” “No sensitivity to the moment.” Are they kidding? It’s his moment! This happened to him! He just went through a stabbing and took a picture. What are you people talking about? I’ve never seen so much shaking of heads over so little. Someone was stabbed – and dared to take a picture! (Not just any student, according to what one student told Buzzfeed, but a student who helped protect others and might have pulled the fire alarm to get people out of the building.) I can’t believe we need to go

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

over this, but, in short, there is nothing intrinsically bad or wrong with a selfie. The issue is all in how one uses it. It is a way of taking a picture. If the Founders had access to cellphones, there’d be an arm in every portrait. The selfie, in itself, is not a sign of narcissism. It can be wielded that way, just as any medium can. Just because a picture is taken by someone else does not mean that it is not the most narcissistic thing possible. Hire someone to paint your portrait in a golden robe in front of your Newport home, holding a luxury dog – and the fact that you weren’t the one wielding the brush won’t save you. Now, given the ubiquity of cellphones, selfies are as easy as thought. You have a camera at all times. You don’t have 1,000 words to spare. You want to tell people what’s happening. This one says, “I’m OK.” How else do you tell people that? Social media is embedded in our lives. What do people want him to do instead, telephone his friends at home on their land lines? Telegraph them? Send them a pigeon? For Pete’s sake, this is how we talk now. He shouldn’t be smiling. Have you never been a teenager?

Douglas Adams said that “any technology invented after you’re 35 is against the natural order of things.” Selfie has “self” in it. It sounds narcissistic and bad. But it’s all in how you use it. And this is being used to communicate. As Slade Sohmer wrote at HyperVocal.com, this is a picture that says “I’m fine.” I just went through something terrifying. It happened. I’m OK now. He was even able to come up with a caption. “Chillin’ at Children’s.” The message? It’s OK. Don’t worry. Why is that in poor taste? Or narcissistic? It happened to him, not to you. The only sign of a decline of civilization is that someone stabbed his classmates Wednesday morning at school, and instead of being upset about that, some people wasted their indignation on the fact that one of those students took a selfie afterward. That’s what I call decline. It’s easier not to talk about the real things. But this is ridiculous. • Alexandra Petri writes the ComPost blog at washingtonpost.com/blogs/compost.

Teen denied bond reduction Woodstock student among four charged in alleged sexual assault of 15-year-old By CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – A McHenry County judge rejected a bond reduction for one of four teenagers accused in a sexual assault, a video of which was later posted to Facebook. Corion V. Simpson was one of two who were charged as adults after the alleged incident, which is said to have happened in December. Two others were charged as

juveniles. Simpson, who told the judge Monday that he plays football at Woodstock High School, faces charges of criminal sexual assault, criminal sexual abuse and intimidation. According to Assistant State’s Attorney Sharyl Eisenstein, Simpson brought the 15-year-old alleged victim to a party in Woodstock where drugs and alcohol were present. The girl was brought into

a room with the four boys and three of them performed sex acts with her while one recorded a video. Simpson is accused of threatening to post the video to Facebook if she didn’t perform additional sex acts with him. The girl’s father alerted police after learning the video had been posted to Facebook. The post has since been removed, police said. After his arrest, Simpson told police he knew what he is

accused of doing was wrong because the girl was too intoxicated, Eisenstein said. At 15 years old, she is too young to consent to sex acts. His defense attorney, Mark Facchini, noted that Simpson has no prior criminal history and that the alleged incident happened just after his 18th birthday, which is why he’s charged as an adult. Facchini said Simpson is

D-300 to lobby state for overdue grants Officials want to use portion of funds to finance project By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com CARPENTERSVILLE – School District 300 Board members want to pressure state lawmakers to award overdu e constr uctio n money the district would use to help finance a $7 million project. Members discussed Monday a resolution that permits officials from the Carpentersville-based school district to lobby legislative leaders and other lawmakers to release state construction

money originally awarded to District 300 in 2004. The district has wanted to use a portion of the $60 million in overdue capital grants to finance the new administrative building near Jacobs High School and the renovation of administrators’ current building for students at the alternative Oak Ridge School to use. “We want to work with [districts] to put pressure on the legislative process,” said member Steve Fiorentino, who co-chairs the legislative committee.

“It’s a very aggressive plan.” Members of the district’s legislative committee also plan to organize the 50 districts awaiting the backlogged money from 2004 to help make a personal pitch for the funds during a Springfield trip in May. Construction will begin on the $7 million project later this month after the board unanimously awarded an initial set of bids for both buildings,

Jury selection finished in CL armed robbery trial Man allegedly stole oxycodone from CVS pharmacy By CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – Jury selection wrapped up Monday for the trial of a Crystal Lake man accused of robbing a CVS pharmacy at gunpoint. Eric S. Sorenson, 31, previously rejected the state’s offer of 21 years, the minimum prison sentence he faces if convicted of armed robbery. Twelve jurors – nine men and three women – and two alternates were selected for the trial, which is expected to last through Thursday. Opening statements

are set for Tuesday morning. Sorenson was arrested in November 2012, two months after three bottles of oxycodone, a powerful painkiller, were taken at gunpoint from a pharmacist at the Crystal Lake CVS, police said. He’s been in custody at McHenry County Jail in lieu of $130,000 bond. Sorenson’s attorney, Steve McArdle, said Monday the case comes down to identity. Not only was the perpetrator wearing a mask, but Sorenson had a prescription for oxycodone. Assistant State’s Attorney Michael Combs, who also is chief of the criminal division, said witnesses will testify that Sorenson was the masked robber. The trial is presided over by McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather.

CRYSTAL LAKE: WEEKEND FINALISTS

Four area schools compete at Science Olympiad finals By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – In their first trip to the Science Olympiad state finals, Andrew Wagner and his CaryGrove High School team showed they belonged. The team beat more than half its competition, finishing 21st out of 48 teams at the University of Illinois over the weekend. The Science Olympiad is a series of competitions that test students’ scientific problem-solving skills in fields such as forensics, physics, chemistry, astronomy and more. “It was a really good experience,” said Wagner, coach

of the team and Cary-Grove science teacher. “My students were phenomenal and they worked really hard all year. For the seniors, it was a nice end to their careers.” Each team has 15 competitors that often split into groups of two for each individual event. Cary-Grove’s best finish in an event was a fifth-place result in the boomilever – a challenge that requires students to construct a wooden device that has one end connected to a wall and must support a weight that hangs on the other end above the floor. While Cary-Grove celebrated its first trip to the

state finals, Crystal Lake Central High School made its ninth trip to the competition in the last 10 years. The Tigers finished in 13th place, missing out on the coveted top two spots that secure a trip to the national competition. Perennial powers New Trier High School and Stevenson High School finished first and second, respectively, flipping spots from the 2013 finals. Crystal Lake Central claimed the top spot in one event when senior Greg Harmon and junior Brian Koch took gold in air trajectory. Doug Wilbrandt, coach for Crystal Lake Central, said it is great knowing

the team can compete with schools that have 3,000 and 4,000 students and said the experience would give returning team members even more confidence and motivation. “The seniors are reminiscing, but the freshmen, sophomores and juniors are already talking about what they want to do next year,” Wilbrandt said. “I’m very proud of all these kids. They deserve tremendous applause for what they’ve accomplished.” Huntley High School and Jacobs High School also competed in the event, finishing 20th and 33rd, respectively.

60-unit residential complex proposed By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com CARY – A company that is building an apartment complex in Crystal Lake is looking to build a 60unit residential complex in Cary. Pedcor Investments, based in Carmel, Ind., wants to build a 60-unit workforce housing complex on 4.5 acres at First Street and Pearl Street, according to village documents. The company is under contract to buy the property. The complex would have four two-story buildings, as well as a clubhouse, pool and playground for residents. Units in the complex would be one to three bedrooms, and there would be approximately two parking spaces per unit, village documents say. Pedcor currently is constructing a project in Crystal Lake. The Congress Parkway Apartment Homes are scheduled to be complete in the late summer. Cary board members Tuesday are scheduled to begin considering the project. Currently, the village’s comprehensive plan, which is being updated, said the site should be used for “light industrial” and is zoned for manufacturing use. If the plan were to move forward, the village would need to designate the site as multifamily residential. Director of Community and Economic Development Chris Stilling said there are multifamily residential buildings to the north and east of the proposed project site. The previous building on the site was demolished four years ago, Stilling said. “We talked about, as part of the comprehensive plan, the need for more affordable housing and housing for the aging population,” Stilling said. “This is a project that does both.” Village documents say it can take up to 18 months

If you go n What: Cary Committee of the Whole n When: 6 p.m. Tuesday n Where: Village Hall, 655 Village Hall Drive

from now until construction begins. A public hearing on the plan is proposed for May 22 with the village’s board of zoning, planning and appeals. A final decision by the Cary Village Board could come in June. Pedcor hopes to receive tax credits through the Illinois Housing and Development Program through the Low Income Tax Credit program, village documents say. The IHDA program administers federal tax credits. To receive the credits, Pedcor would have to primarily serve residents who make 60 percent of the area median income or less. Investors in the property then can get tax credits in return for project equity, which reduces the amount needed to finance the project and makes rent more affordable. Federal law says that rents and incomes on the property have to remain restricted for 15 years. Pedcor plans to send in its application to IHDA in July. Pedcor also said in documents provided to village board members that there is a need for workforce housing in the village. According to Pedcor, 87.8 percent of the people employed in the Cary live outside of the town, and 57.7 percent of the workers earn less than $40,000 a year. In Pedcor’s properties, each unit has its own entryway rather than there being a common hallway, according to Pedcor documents. Rooms also can accommodate one to six people. Each unit would have large storage for bicycles and other belongings, hookups for a washer and dryer, and a patio or balcony.

8LOCAL BRIEFS SPRING GROVE – After holding its developer fees level last year, the Spring Grove Village Board returned to increasing its fees by the rate of inflation. The ordinance, which is reviewed on an annual basis, passed by a 5-0 vote with one trustee absent. It includes increases to the village’s impact fees and municipal donations – fees charged to developers to cover the cost of new residents using the area’s parks and schools – by the rate of inflation, which was 1.7 percent. The board typically raises these fees by the rate of inflation but last year decided to keep them flat in an effort to promote building activity, Village President Mark Eisenberg said. The village also held meet-

ings last year with area developers to brainstorm ways the village could encourage growth. “We feel that whether it gets increased or not, it’s not going to affect the building in Spring Grove,” Eisenberg said.

KANE COUNTY: NEARLY ALL IMPOUNDED ANIMALS ADOPTED

Petting zoo owner gives up last 2 goats By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – A petting zoo owner charged with animal cruelty and neglect last month agreed Monday to give up the last two remaining goats of 94 starved and sick animals impounded by Kane County Animal Control. At a hearing, Kane County Assistant State’s Attorney Danielle Curtiss said they would withdraw a motion to have Elgin resident Stacy Fiebelkorn post $3,555 for the cost of 30 days of care for the two remaining goats, since she had agreed to relinquish them. All the animals that once were part of Fiebelkorn’s Mini Zoo Crew, based in Hampshire, are now removed from her ownership. These include chickens,

ducks, geese, rabbits, goats, horses, ponies, donkeys, alpacas and llamas, officials said. Fiebelkorn had given up the rabbits, poultry and all but two goats, and she initially fought to keep all the horses, donkeys, goats, alpacas and llamas. After she failed to post $30,000 cash to pay for their continuing medical care, food and shelter, however, all but the two goats were forfeited – and now those, too, officially are no longer hers. Nearly all of the animals have been adopted out “to their forever homes” said Robert Sauceda, Kane County’s animal control administrator. That includes the two new owners of the last two goats Fiebelkorn just gave up. “We have a goat and a billy goat and two horses left,

to get them to their forever homes soon.” Sauceda said nearly all were adopted in Kane

County, with a few going to DeKalb County. The new owners have taken over the cost of continuing care for the impounded animals that still are recovering from illness, malnutrition and starvation. Animal control has contracts with the animals’ new owners about what they need for their continuing care, he said. Nicole Wessel, a veterinarian who was caring for many of the animals, will give the new owners guidelines on what they need to do, Sauceda said. “We are excited,” Sauceda said. “It’s been a roller coaster, [but] we see the light at end of the tunnel.” Also Monday, Kane County Associate Judge Elizabeth Flood approved a request by the Kane County Chronicle to allow cameras in the court-

room for a hearing scheduled for 1 p.m. Thursday at the branch court, 540 S. Randall Road, St. Charles. That hearing will center on a request by Fiebelkorn’s attorney, Jamie Wombacher, to have the judge order county officials not to talk about the case outside of the courtroom, as her client still faces misdemeanor criminal charges. Wombacher argued that those comments would jeopardize Fiebelkorn’s right to a fair trial. Kane County Assistant State’s Attorney Erin Gaeke filed papers in response that such a restriction would violate constitutional free speech rights, and that their comments “are factual and concern the victim animals and are all permitted by the rules regarding trial publicity.”

The fire district was called about 4:45 p.m. Monday to

10926 Cape Cod Lane after the driver, whose name was not released, crashed into the garages of the two townhouses, said Battalion Chief Russ Wilson. The gas line for one of the townhouses was struck and had to be shut down. Nobody can occupy the house until the line is repaired, Wilson said.

ment has not been determined. She said that determination would only come after his release. The alleged victim does not attend Woodstock High School with the boys. Judge Sharon Prather kept the teen’s bond at $80,000, meaning he needs $8,000 to be released. His next court date is May 8.

Elliot Echols, NIU student trustee, remembered his friend Steven Agee as a quiet kid who cared deeply about his schoolwork. Echols said Steven used to miss phone calls from his parents because he was so involved on campus. Echols also recalled how he and Steven would always compete against one another. “We were a team, but we operated independently,” Echols said. “Steven made me remember that.” NIU students will now be able to see a poster of Steven Agee in the conference room with words reading, “Dream, believe, achieve.” Kimberly Agee said it’s bittersweet that the court proceedings are over and that she doesn’t know if she’ll ever get closure. Still, she will always be able to see the legacy her son left behind at NIU. “Forever,” Kimberly Agee said. “That’s all I’m asking.”

Its members plant and maintain the vegetable gardens and other landscaping at Petersen Farm, club Pres-

ident Judy Walter said. A lot of the bushes around the house came from members’ gardens. They also maintain some of the landscaping at city parks, in particular around the entrance signs. They landscaped and built four raised beds for a vegetable garden for the veterans housed at New Horizons transitional living facility in Hebron, showing them how to plant, what to plant and what to watch for,

Walter said. They also put together flower arrangements to take over to the hospice patients at Alden Terrace of McHenry each month. They host educational programs at the McHenry Public Library and donate books, mostly on gardening, to the library. But as a former high school math teacher, Walter’s favorite is the two to four scholarships they provide each year to McHenry

students majoring in horticulture. “It feels like this club goes overboard garden-wise to benefit the community,” said Walter, who joined in 2008, a couple of years after she moved to McHenry. The club is a “wonderful mixture of women,” both young and old. “We are not – I repeat we are not – old ladies sitting around eating crumpets,” Walter said. “We get our hands dirty.”

DeKALB – When Kimberly Agee saw the Northern Illinois University conference room named in honor of her deceased son Steven, her face lit up with joy. NIU held a dedication ceremony Monday at the Campus Life Building for Steven R. Agee II, an NIU student who was shot and killed Nov. 23. 2011, during an off-campus party in an apartment at 809 Edgebrook Drive in DeKalb. “It’s overwhelming to know my son was given his life to us for 22 years and 10 months, and within that short time, he left a legacy,” Kimberly Agee said. That legacy now carries on to Chianthony Lee, the sophomore who received the Steven R. Agee II Award on Monday during the Student Association’s 2013-14 Student Choice Awards. The dedication ceremony

college. We owe it to younger generations to replace that life,” she said. “That’s one of my ultimate goals.” Lee, a business management major who is involved with the Student Association Senate and Liberated Minds Organization, said it was an honor to be given the Steven R. Agee II Award. He was nominated online and selected by the Student Association. “It feels good to represent Steven Agee,” Lee said. “It puts more pressure on me to be a leader on campus and to uphold his legacy.” During his 4½ years studying at NIU, Steven Agee was involved with Black Male Initiative and was the president of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. The Black Male Initiative was also recognized Monday as the most outstanding organization. The organization boasts a 100 percent graduation rate.

despite the uncertainty on funding the project. After recently receiving other grants, the district needs about $3.2 million to bankroll the renovation and new administration building. The first bids awarded Monday total $2.12 million, including $1.63 million to 10 companies to do excavation,

roofing and concrete work on the new administration building. A second set of bids will be presented within the month. Officials have been waiting for the state construction money ever since the district started expanding its facilities in 2004 to accommodate a larger student population. The increased pressure on lawmakers comes after

the Illinois State Board of Education awarded belated grants earlier this year to the school districts that applied in 2003. District officials would want lawmakers and the education board to commit to releasing the 2004 funding and determine where individual districts rank for the money, under the messaging strategy detailed in the resolution. They also want the state to release any remain-

ing capital funds leftover from the 2003 release. Officials would seek commitments from lawmakers before the legislative session concludes at the end of May. If the lobbying effort ultimately fails, District 300 would borrow additional money and use leftover bonds from last year to finance the Oak Ridge renovation and new administration office, officials have said.

CRYSTAL LAKE – The Crystal Lake City Council will hold a public hearing Tuesday on its proposed $91.3 million budget for capital and operational expenses in 2014-15. The proposed budget is $2 million more than last year’s $89.3 million budget and includes $12.5 million in capital spending from reserve funds. Revenues are conservatively expected to come in at $78.7 million. The public hearing will take place during the council’s meeting at 100 W. Woodstock St. The meeting is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. George Koczwara, finance director for the city, said Crystal Lake has spent reserve funds for capital expenses in previous years. The major capital projects proposed this year include upgrades and additions in water and sewer infrastructure and improvements to roadway infrastructure. The reserve fund balance will be 43.3 percent of annual operating expenses after the $12.5 million spend down. The budget includes 16 projects in the water and sewer division ranging from the construction on a new well to the expansion of a treatment plant. An 11.4 percent increase in water and sewer rates that would see the bill of

an average monthly user increase from $44 to $49 would cover some of the additional costs of the projects. The increase in water rates also includes an increase in discounts for seniors, as the 15 percent discount would grow to a 20 percent break on the first 4,000 gallons used in a month. General fund spending would decrease by $1.7 million in the proposal because of the completion of projects such as the Railroad Street parking expansion and repairs to the Raue Center for the Arts. Unfilled city positions and the conclusion of the centennial celebration also aided the spending cuts. While economic growth is still slow, officials project growth in some revenue sources, including a $253,059 increase in income tax and a $268,180 jump in home rule sales tax. Officials previously approved a property tax levy hike that would increase that revenue from $14.7 million to about $16 million to cover pensions, firefighter salaries and benefits, library services and crossing guard services. Unlike many municipalities, no property tax revenue goes toward the general fund in Crystal Lake. Even with the increase, the city’s property tax rate is among the lowest in McHenry County.

Agee II conference room, located in the Student Association office suite. Monday marked the first event for the Agee family since Chaz Thrailkill, 21, of Markham, accepted a plea agreement for the murder of Steven Agee II. Thrailkill was sentenced to 30 years in prison – 25 of those years being mandatory – after pleading guilty April 1 to first-degree murder and attempted aggravated discharge of a firearm. Kimberly Agee stressed the importance of honoring students who have continued her son’s legacy.

Turning point? Is hot market for initial public offerings cooling off? By STEVE ROTHWELL The Associated Press NEW YORK – A hot market for initial public offerings soon may face a cooler reception from investors. IPOs are having their best start to a year since 2000. Eighty-nine companies have raised $19 billion through sales of new stock so far in 2014, according to Dealogic. But demand for more offerings depends largely on the health of the broader market, and after last week’s sell-off, the clamor from buyers may quiet down. Auto financing company Ally Financial and hotel operator La Quinta Holdings had lukewarm receptions for their IPOs last week. La Quinta priced its shares at $17 each, lower than its expected range of $18 to $21, which suggested less demand. The stock rose slightly in its debut Wednesday then fell the next two days to end the week below its original offer price. Ally, the largest IPO this year, priced its shares at $25 each, the bottom of its expected range of $25 to $28. The former financing arm of General Motors fell 4 percent in its premiere Thursday, closing at $23.98. On Monday, both stocks ended below their IPO price. Some companies delayed their IPOs last week as the stock market turned bumpy. Paycom Software, a human resources software company, and City Office REIT, a real estate investment firm for office properties, were expected to launch. But their IPOs didn’t happen and the companies are expected to try to complete them this week. Andy Sanford, head of Wells Fargo Securities’ equity capital markets group, who helped launch La Quinta, said companies will have to lower their expectations on prices, although he thinks there still is good demand for new stocks. “IPOs have been a place where investors have been able to get higher returns than the broader market,” Sanford said. La Quinta and Ally were among 10 companies that raised $4.2 billion through IPOs last week, the third

Ally Financial CEO Michael Carpenter (third from right) is applauded as he rings the New York Stock Exchange opening bell to mark his company’s IPO. busiest for debuts in 2014. Another 12 companies are scheduled to launch stock this week. The IPO market started recovering last year after being in the doldrums following the financial crisis and Great Recession. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index surged almost 30 percent in 2013. That helped boost the appetite for new stocks as investors looked for ways to beat the market. Twitter, hotel group Hilton Worldwide and sandwich-shop chain Potbelly were some of the big-name IPOs in 2013. Companies raised $61.9 billion through stock sales on U.S. exchanges last year, the best for IPOs since 2007. Prior to that, that top year was 2000, when companies sold $104.5 million of stock at the tail end of the internet bubble. Investors have been drawn to the market because it gives them more bang for their investment buck. Stocks have looked more attractive than bonds, after bonds lost 0.4 percent last year, according to data from Barclays. The FTSE Renaissance IPO index, which tracks the performance of new stock offerings for up to two years

after their debut, surged 63.3 percent last year. That rise was more than double the 29.6 percent increase for the S&P 500 index. The IPO index is down 0.6 percent this year, less than the broader market’s decline of 1 percent. The appetite for IPOs also is being driven by established companies buying back their own shares just as demand for stocks is rising, said Russ Koesterich, chief investment strategist for BlackRock. That buying has reduced the overall availability of shares in the market. “You’ve had a lot of supply taken out of the market in the last one to two years, due to all the buybacks,” Koesterich said. “So the IPOs are meeting a need for supply.” Companies in the S&P 500 spent $475.6 billion on buying their own stock last year, an increase of 19 percent from 2012, according to data from S&P Dow Jones Indices. The strong pace has continued this year. Companies spent $129.4 billion on buybacks during the first quarter. Last year’s robust IPO market carried through to the start of this year. But signs of weakness have appeared as stocks become more volatile.

Study shows increase in online information thefts NEW YORK – The number of Americans who say they’ve had important personal information stolen online is on the rise, according to a Pew Research Center report released Monday. According to the survey conducted in January, 18 percent of online adults have had personal information stolen such as their social security number, credit card or bank account information. That’s up from 11 percent in a July 2013 Pew survey. The number of adults who had an online account compromised or taken over without their permission – such as email or social media – remained flat at 21 percent. The survey was done after news broke of Target Corp.’s massive pre-Christmas data breach, but well before last week’s discovery of the “Heartbleed” bug, which has caused widespread worry across the Internet.

Retail sales up strong 1.1 percent in March WASHINGTON – U.S. retail sales in March rose by the largest amount in 18 months, led by strong gains in sales of autos, furniture and a number of other products. The 1.1 percent jump reported by the Commerce Department on Monday was the best showing since September 2012. The government also revised February to a 0.7 percent gain, more than double its previous estimate. Sales had fallen in January and December.

Executives and guests of La Quinta Holdings applaud the opening bell in honor of the company’s IPO. So far in 2014, IPOs are having their best start to a year since 2000, with 89 companies raising $19 billion through sales of new stock. But demand for more offerings depends largely on the health of the broader market, and after last week’s sell-off, the clamor from buyers may quiet down.

WASHINGTON – The Affordable Care Act’s health insurance subsidies will cost a little less than previously thought, according to a new report released Monday. The Congressional Budget Office predicts that health insurance subsidies under the so-called “Obamacare” plan will total a little more than $1 trillion over the next 10 years, instead of almost $1.2 trillion initially estimated. CBO said the 8 percent cut results largely from tighter cost controls by insurance companies offering plans on health care exchanges. Generally speaking, the plans offered on the exchanges pay health care providers less and have tighter management of patients’ treatment options, and that means lower premiums and taxpayer subsidies. Medicaid adds almost $800 billion in costs over the decade. Overall, however, the health care law reduces the deficit because of tax hikes, penalties paid by people and businesses that forgo insurance, and curbs on Medicare.

Spring is here, time to clean up and de-clutter As we all can finally cheer on the arrival of spring, it also is a great time for de-cluttering and cleaning up our businesses and personal environments. A disorganized workspace doesn’t just make it harder for you to find that pen or notebook, it also makes it more difficult to find the ideas and thoughts to accomplish many tasks. A cluttered environment distracts your focus, creativity and motivation. Clean it up to ensure your workspace is conducive to inspiration and productivity. De-clutter your desk, your office, your patio – wherever you do your best work. Put away things that distract you and don’t really need to be staring at you every day.

JUDGE: MICHAEL JACKSON’S MOM SHOULD PAY COSTS

THINGS

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

* Tuesday, April 15, 2014 • Section B • Page 6

LOS ANGELES – Michael Jackson’s mother should pay more than $800,000 in trial costs to a concert promoter that she targeted in a failed negligent hiring lawsuit involving the death of her son, a judge said Monday. Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos issued the tentative ruling calling on the Jackson family matriarch to pay AEG Live LLC after it won the case. The five-month trial ended in October with a jury determining that AEG Live did not negligently hire the doctor convicted of causing Michael Jackson’s death in 2009 as he prepared for a comeback tour. The ruling is expected to be finalized after AEG Live submits an amended list of its costs for items such as court filing fees, court reporters and travel. Attorneys for the company and Katherine Jackson agreed not to argue Palazuelos’ tentative ruling, but it might be appealed.

Discovery to air flight off Everest peak on May 11 NEW YORK – Discovery Channel has set the date for its live coverage of the first wingsuit flight off the summit of Mount Everest. The network plans to air “Everest Jump Live” at 8 p.m. May 11, weather permitting. It also will be telecast globally. High-altitude climber Joby Ogwyn will make the attempt. Discovery will air a live two-hour broadcast showing the California native as he battles conditions on the way to the summit of the world’s tallest mountain, then takes the plunge. His custom-made wingsuit will be equipped with cameras to capture the descent of more than 10,000 vertical feet at speeds exceeding 150 mph. The event will be preceded by five nights of live programs from Everest covering Ogwyn’s training and preparation. They begin May 5.

MTV Movie Awards big Hollywood studio plug-fest LOS ANGELES – Last year, the MTV Movie Awards moved up its broadcast date from June to April to incorporate a summer movie plug-fest. Sunday night’s show cemented that change as clips from anticipated blockbusters debuted at the ceremony. Now in its 22nd year, the MTV Movie Awards show has become an important event for Hollywood studios. And, oh yes, there were some awards, too. Sure, an abundance of golden popcorn-shaped prizes were again presented for fun fare, like the award for best shirtless performance, which Zac Efron accepted, well, shirtless. But it’s the summer movie teasers – and the stars attached to them – that really make the show. Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx star in the second installment of Sony’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” franchise, which kicks off the summer movie season on May 2. The trio introduced a film clip showing Spider-Man and the villain Electro battling in New York’s Times Square. Seth Rogen, Dave Franco and Efron, who lead Universal Pictures’ comedy “Neighbors,” out May 9, presented the award for best kiss. First-look footage from Fox’s “The Fault in Our Stars,” starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, showed the beginnings of the on-screen couple’s romance in the heartfelt comedy. Channing Tatum will appear in the buddy cop comedy “22 Jump Street,” out June 13, with Jonah Hill (who picked up the best comedic performance award for “The Wolf of Wall Street”) and the sci-fi fantasy “Jupiter Ascending,” out July 18, with Mila Kunis (who scored the title of best villain for “Oz the Great and Powerful”). Host Conan O’Brien kicked off the ceremony, which aired live from the Nokia Theatre, with a challenge to gain 50 celebrity cameos for his opening segment. And of course he came through with many stars like Paul Rudd and Adam Sandler, who have films expected to be released in the coming months.

SPRINGFIELD – Grammy Award-winning rock band Steely Dan will play this year’s Illinois State Fair. State officials made the announcement Monday afternoon. They said the band will play its “Jamalot Ever After” tour at the fair on Aug. 15. Steely Dan had a string of hits during the 1970s. They won a Grammy in 2000 for Album of the Year. The fair runs from Aug. 7 to 17 in Springfield. Other acts this year include country singers Jake Owen and Hunter Hayes, Florida Georgia Line and Boston

Flavor Flav takes plea deal in Vegas battery case LAS VEGAS – Entertainer Flavor Flav pleaded guilty Monday to reduced charges and was sentenced to probation and more counseling in a Las Vegas domestic violence case involving the teenage son of his longtime girlfriend. The 55-year-old rapper and reality TV personality, whose legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr., acknowledged in court that he wielded a kitchen knife during an Oct. 17, 2012, argument at home in Las Vegas. The teen testified during a preliminary hearing a year ago that Drayton threatened to kill him, chased him to a bedroom and stabbed the knife through the door during the argument.

The family has since reconciled and has been undergoing counseling, defense attorney Kristina Wildeveld told Senior Clark County District Court Judge Kathy Hardcastle on Monday. In court, Drayton called the victim his stepson. “I love my son and my son loves me, too,” he told the judge. The teen, now 18, and his mother were not in court when Drayton entered his plea to misdemeanor charges of attempted battery that could have caused substantial injury and battery constituting domestic violence. Drayton had been facing felony assault and child endangerment with a weapon charges that could have gotten him up to 12 years in prison. Outside court, the entertainer pulled his trademark clock neck-wear from beneath a red T-shirt, as he and his defense attorneys said they don’t expect the Las Vegas conviction to affect a pending felony speeding and driving without a license case in Mineola, N.Y. The New York charges stem from Drayton’s Jan. 9 arrest while driving to his mother’s funeral on Long Island. Wildeveld said Drayton was paying fines to resolve that case. If Drayton violates terms of the agreement in the domestic violence case, he could face up to a year in county jail, the judge said. Hardcastle set an Aug. 18 court appearance to close the case if Drayton completes counseling.

Relativity’s last-minute bid for Maker rebuffed LOS ANGELES – Relativity Media, a film financier and movie distributor, was rebuffed in a last-minute bid for Maker Studios, the YouTube video creator that had agreed to be bought by The Walt Disney Co. last month. Privately held Relativity offered cash and stock worth $525 million for Maker, plus up to $500 million in cash and stock if performance targets were met. Relativity also offered stock worth up to $75 million to key Maker talent and executives who did not have a stake in Maker. Maker said Monday that its board and the majority of its shareholders had approved the sale to Disney and expects that deal to close in the next few weeks. Maker’s deal with Disney was for $500 million in cash plus $450 million for meeting performance goals.

KISHWAUKEE RIVER CONFERENCE

Marengo to join Woodstock schools, BC in new league directors and the principals from the four schools met, along with Harvard, on Friday about the matter. Although there is no item on the agenda for Wednesday’s Harvard school board meeting, District 154 Superintendent Dan Bertrand said he expects the Harvard board to discuss the matter then. Because it is not on the agenda, Harvard cannot vote on the matter. The schools must give the BNC two

By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com MARENGO – The Kishwaukee River Conference continues to grow after the Marengo School District 154 board voted unanimously Monday to allow Marengo to become a charter member of the new league starting in 2016. Woodstock, Woodstock North and Burlington Central have already committed to join the conference. Athletic

years’ notice to leave, but, if the BNC votes unanimously to allow them to leave early, the KRC could begin play in the fall of 2015. The Fox Valley Conference – of which Woodstock and Woodstock North are members – does not allow for the same early departure. Officials from schools committed to the new conference hope to have board approval from each district by the end of the current school year.

Bertrand told board members that the conference will try to attract at least five schools to begin play. He said the KRC would be willing to start with five schools but will approach Johnsburg, Richmond-Burton and GenoaKingston to join. “I’m not speaking for them or their districts, but I feel pretty confident that we can get one of them to come with us if we can get this thing started,” Bertrand said. “It doesn’t make

much sense for some of them to be driving past us to go play Rock Falls and Mendota.” Part of the earlier discussions involved possibly expanding the BNC to include Woodstock and Woodstock North. But both schools were told by BNC President Drew Popejoy in February that the league did not have interest in expansion.

CRYSTAL LAKE SOUTH BASEBALL

Almost all the way back

Throwing again after a serious shoulder injury suffered during football season as a junior, Crystal Lake South senior pitcher Josh Smith works out Monday at the Pro Players Canes’ facility in Crystal Lake.

Smith grateful to be pitching again after serious shoulder injury, surgery By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – Josh Smith experienced the normal doubts anyone would have traveling the long road back from shoulder surgery. Perhaps even more so given what Smith has accomplished while throwing baseballs really hard. “It was the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through in my life,” said Smith, a senior pitcher for Crystal Lake South’s baseball team. “You keep hearing [from medical personnel], ‘You’ll be fine. You’ll be fine.

Just keep working at it.’ When I first started throwing it was hard to see my friends in travel league going out and doing well, getting scholarships and stuff, and I can barely throw 60 feet.” That was last fall, which is a distant memory for Smith now. He started and

pitched 51/3 innings in Friday’s 6-2 victory over Grayslake North. That Smith didn’t get the decision – he left trailing 2-0, allowing two hits and one earned run – hardly mattered. He was back. “It felt good, seeing live competition and starting a game, you feel like it’s your game,” said Smith, who previously had several shorter relief appearances for the 5-3 Gators. “You set the tone for your team. It feels good to be out there and start.” Smith, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound right-hander, gained attention after his sophomore year, when he was selected for the Great Lakes Regional 17U team to play in the National

Everybody in for semipro football ELGIN – Charles Ranzino never will play in the NFL. Kyle Easterline never will take part in a “Lambeau Leap.” Ben Boyd never will be the No. 1 pick in a fantasy football league. Yet the Marengo graduates will push their minds and bodies to the limits this spring and summer because they love football. They will travel hundreds of miles and absorb hundreds of hits for the Fox Valley Eagles, a semi-pro football team that will play its home games at Huntley High School as part of the Ironman Football League. So what if the Bears don’t scout their contests? “That’s not why I’m there, and I would definitely say for all of the guys, that’s not why

VIEWS Tom Musick they’re there,” said Ranzino, a 2008 Marengo graduate who plays offensive line for the Eagles. “It really comes down to having a passion and love for the game.” That passion for football was evident during the Eagles’ recent tryouts at Intra Soccer Fieldhouse in Elgin, where a few dozen semipro veterans and newcomers participated in NFL-style drills led by coach Eliseo “Sal” Saldivar and his assistants. Players wore white T-shirts with the Eagles logo on the front as they lined up for the 40-yard dash, three-cone drill, standing long

jump and other fitness tests. The Eagles’ season opener is June 14 against the Rock County Rage in Milton, Wis. Their home opener is two weeks later, June 28, against the Rock River Raptors. “Eagles on me, Eagles on three!” a team captain barked from the center of a huddle during a pre-practice pep talk. “Onetwo-three …” “EAGLES!” Before long, beads of sweat dripped from players’ foreheads as they sprinted across the indoor turf in their shorts, T-shirts and soft cleats. Linemen cheered on skill position players and vice versa as Saldivar recorded each drill with his stopwatch.

Team Identification Series Showcase in Cary, N.C. A few months later, Smith’s career hit the huge roadblock when he collided with a Lake Zurich running back in a 2012 Class 7A football playoff game. Smith, a linebacker, felt his right shoulder get “blown out backwards.” He had suffered an anterior-interior labrum tear. Before Thanksgiving, he underwent surgery by orthopaedic surgeon Brian Forsythe. He faced a long, challenging rehabilitation, although it beat the alternative.

HARVARD FOOTBALL AND WRESTLING

2 coaches to replace Haak By JEFF ARNOLD and JOE STEVENSON jarnold@shawmedia.com and joestevenson@shawmedia.com Harvard is set to hire two coaches to replace retiring Hall of Fame football and wrestling coach Tim Haak at its District 50 school board meeting Wednesday night. The district’s board meeting agenda reads that superintendent Lauri Tobias will recommend the board hires Michael Sean Saylor as football coach and Mark Payne as wrestling coach. Saylor was most recently the defensive coordinator at East Peoria and previously was the head coach at Limestone. Payne was a head wrestling coach at Manassas Park (Va.) and St. Clair (Mo.) before that.

Payne also would be a credit recovery teacher at the school, while Saylor, known as Sean, would be a physical education/driver education teacher. Haak is retiring as physical education teacher and coach. He was head football coach for 29 years and wrestling coach for 26 years. He was voted into the Illinois High School Football Coaches Association and Illinois Wrestling Coaches and Officials Association Halls of Fame. There was no mention of any discussion about Harvard’s possible ties to a proposed new athletic conference on the agenda. But Marengo superintendent Dan Bertrand said at Marengo’s Monday night meeting that Harvard would discuss the matter.

UNIONIZATION OF COLLEGE ATHLETES

NCAA goes on offensive

8INSIDE BASEBALL Athlete of the Week JORDAN SUMNER Woodstock, sr. The Blue Streaks’ center fielder came up big in two games, although Woodstock came up a bit short each time last week. Sumner doubled and tripled and scored one run as the Streaks lost to Cary-Grove, 4-3, in a Fox Valley Conference crossover game Tuesday. He also had two doubles and six RBIs in Woodstock’s 10-9 loss to Belvidere North on Thursday.

Talking points warn of pitfalls The ASSOCIATED PRESS INDIANAPOLIS – The NCAA contends that unionization by college athletes could lead to fewer scholarships and championships as well as a drop in academic support and career counseling. In a set of talking points issued to school leaders late last week, college sports’ largest governing body urged school leaders to have a unified voice on the topic that dramatically could alter college athletics. This document includes some traditional points of emphasis for the NCAA – that school leaders want athletes to focus on their classwork, the NCAA has liberalized rules to allow athletic departments to purchase items such as suits and members continue to work on legislation to provide money to cover the full cost-of-attendance. But the NCAA also warned that “scholarships would be cut or eliminated. The number of championship experiences would be dramatically reduced. Smaller sports would lose funding.” It also said support services such as academic support, career counseling and tutoring could be “cut significantly or eliminated.” “Do we really want to signal to society and high school students that making money is the reason to come play a sport in college, as opposed to getting an education, which will benefit you for a lifetime?” the NCAA memo reads. “That’s not the message I want to send.” The talking points were issued as the National Labor Relations Board weighs a decision by a regional NLRB official clearing the way for football players at Northwestern to form what would be the nation’s first union for college athletes. The NCAA, Big Ten Conference and Northwestern all oppose the move, and the school has appealed. A player vote is planned April 25 and the topic has dominated college athletics for weeks amid speculation that the effort, along with antitrust and other lawsuits against the NCAA, could change the very nature of amateur sports. The NCAA said the talking points were provided as a guide or starting point for school officials to share their own views. “As a membership organization, it is our responsibility to provide accurate and timely information on matters impacting college sports,” spokeswoman Stacey Osburn said Monday in an email. “Our members requested facts and data on payfor-play because there was so much misinformation in the media, based in part on public statements from those who are advancing the union movement and those who have brought suit against the NCAA.”

Prairie Ridge co-op’s Rachael Underwood competes in floor exercise Feb. 4 during an IHSA sectional at Fremd. Underwood, who attends Cary-Grove, recently won the Level 10 all-around title at the Junior Olympics Region 5 Championships for Crystal Lake Gymnastics Training Center to qualify for nationals.

GIRLS CLUB GYMNASTICS

Local girls make nationals Cary-Grove junior Underwood makes history for CL gym By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com Rachael Underwood accomplished something no competitor from Crystal Lake Gymnastics Training Center had done. Underwood, a junior at Cary-Grove, won the Level 10 all-around title at the Junior Olympics Region 5 Championships over the weekend in Dimondale, Mich., with a score of 37.65. CLGTC owner and head coach Lee Battaglia said none of his athletes had won a Level 10 all-around regional title. Underwood was one of four CLGTC gymnasts to qualify for national meets next month. Underwood will compete in the Junior Olympic National Championships on May 7 through 9 in Jack-

son, Miss. Aubrie Purtell, a senior at Huntley, finished in the top 10 of Level 10 allaround competitors, which qualified her for the Junior Olympics NIT at the same time and place. Battaglia explained that the first seven all-around competitors qualify for nationals and the eighth through 10th gymnasts qualify for the NIT. CLGTC gymnasts Maddie Solka and Kelsey Boos finished 1-2 in Level 9 all-around to advance to the Level 9 Eastern Championships on May 2 through 4 in Bradenton, Fla. Solka, a sophomore at C-G, won with a 37.525. Boos, a sophomore at Huntley, scored 37.425. Underwood has been one of the top gymnasts in the IHSA state meet, com-

peting for Prairie Ridge’s co-op team, the past three years. At the Region 5 meet, she won floor exercise, was second in vault and sixth on balance beam and parallel bars. Solka, who also competes for Prairie Ridge, helped the Wolves to second place as a team in state this high school season. At the Region 5 meet, she won the floor exercise, took seconds in vault and bars and was eighth on beam. Boos won the balance beam and finished in the top six of the other three events. “It was a real good year,” Battaglia said. Vladimir Gogoladze, Lisa Rumford and Ben Hardy are assistant coaches with CLGTC.

JACOBS ATHLETIC DIRECTOR EXPECTED TO LEAVE

Vosnos in line for Homewood-Flossmoor job By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com Jacobs athletic director Dan Vosnos likely will become the new athletic director at Homewood-Flossmoor when the District 233 school board meets Tuesday night. A District 233 spokesperson confirmed Vosnos’

name is on the agenda for board approval at Tuesday’s meeting. Vosnos said Monday he could not comment on the situation. Vosnos, 35, came to Jacobs before the 2011-12 school year when he replaced Tom Ross. If approved by District 233’s board, Vosnos will take over

at H-F on July 1. Before coming to Jacobs, Vosnos worked for eight years at Evanston as assistant athletic director and also served as extracurricular academic support advisor, monitoring student-athletes and working with parents, coaches and staff. Vosnos graduated from

Glenbrook South in 1997 and from Illinois Wesleyan in 2001. He played linebacker and lettered in football all four years at Illinois Wesleyan. He earned his master’s degree from Northeastern and a Master’s in Administrative Leadership from National Louis University.

Senior made first start for Gators on Friday • SMITH Continued from page C1 “I got lucky. It was on the bottom of the labrum,” Smith said. “If it was a superior tear, I probably wouldn’t have been able to throw again.” Smith was in a sling for three months, then went through physical therapy for another six months. By August, Smith was throwing again. A couple of months later, he threw some innings with the Pro Player Canes in fall games. Gators coach Brian Bogda is excited to get Smith for this season. “To get an arm like him is a shot in the arm for us, so to speak,” Bogda said. “He’s bounced back real nicely from the injury. We started him the other day and he threw really well. It means a lot and he’s done a lot of real

“He’s been a true gamer and a really good person for our program.” Brian Bogda CL South baseball coach, on pitcher Josh Smith good things.” Smith issued three walks and struck out two in his first high school start Friday. Bogda had him on a 75-pitch limit. Smith has eight strikeouts in 101/3 innings, with a 1-0 record, a 1.30 ERA and has allowed three hits. Bogda did not give mph numbers on Smith’s velocity, but said he is getting close to where he had been. “It was awesome to see him get a start finally,” said South catcher Casey Oliver, who caught Smith

as a sophomore. “And to see him get that many innings. He battled. He pitched very well. He had a long journey to get back to where he is right now. We missed him last season, luckily we had a good pitching staff. It’s even better having him back this year.” Smith watched his brother Christian, a 6-foot-8 pitcher for NCAA Division III Aurora University, battle back from two ankle injuries. He faced a longer rehab than Christian but attacked it with all he had. “You’re young and you think you’re invincible, and nothing bad’s ever going to happen to you,” Josh Smith said. “One day it does and you realize, ‘I really need to work hard and put a lot of effort into it to try to get back where I was.’ ” Had Smith not been injured, he might already have

secured a D-I scholarship. Bogda has received correspondence from D-I coaches, to whom he explains what has happened. Smith thinks the junior college route might serve him best at reaching a D-I school. “Something could still open up at a D-I school that loses a kid to the draft or to an injury,” Bogda said. “He has some offers from junior colleges that would be tough to pass up. Over two years [at junior college], he’ll have an opportunity to go to a Division I school. “His attitude’s been tremendous. It’s difficult coming back from that caliber of injury. He’s been really positive with the younger guys and taken younger pitchers under his wing. That says a lot about Josh and his character. He’s been a true gamer and a really good person for our program.”

By KEVIN MEYER kmeyer@shawmedia.com The McHenry boys water polo team lost a close match against Riverside-Brookfield, 11-10, Monday night in Riverside. The game was tied heading into the fourth quarter, where R-B outscored the Warriors, 5-4. Garrett Floden and Jackson Smith scored three goals each for McHenry, and Matthew Peck added two. Kevin Braun and Teddy Pitzen each scored, and Gino Barry made three saves for McHenry.

Travel times, matchups play roles in decision • MARENGO Continued from page C1 Popejoy, the principal at Rockford Christian, was not available for comment Monday. Johnsburg, R-B and G-K – all of which will be BNC East members in the fall and that have been involved in discussion of the new conference – were not at Friday’s meeting. Bertrand

said that, although all three have been approached about joining the new league, none of them is part of the discussion. When reached by phone Monday evening, G-K athletic director Phil Jerbi said that, although his school has had discussions about joining the new league, at this point it’s content with the BNC. The Cogs are a charter member of the league.

“We will continue to always look at viable options,” Jerbi said. “At this particular point we are a member of the Big Northern.” Like with other schools that have committed, Marengo said that cutting down on travel time was a factor in the decision, as was matching up schools of similar size and competition level. “You look at Harvard

and Burlington and the Woodstocks, us – they’re just natural rivalries,” Bertrand told board members. “You’re going to have better gates (revenue), you’re going to have better rivalries. “A lot of people in this community don’t even know where Oregon and Stillman Valley and Mendota are. But they go to Woodstock, they go to Harvard. It’s a natural.”

Finishing the job: Huntley coach Andy Jakubowski feels fortunate to have senior right-hander Adam Kalish to close games for the Red Raiders for a variety of reasons. Kalish is a submariner who embraces the closer’s role, which is pretty much his one job for the team. “He’s got a closer’s mindset where he wants the ball in all pressure situations,” Jakubowski said. “He’s got ice through his veins. Because he comes from a different arm slot, and guys don’t see that very often, that’s to his advantage. And he’s around the plate and throws strikes and gets the ball around the batter’s hands. We think we have a pretty good defense and he has confidence in his defense.” Kalish has been effective for the Raiders, who are 8-2-1. Jakubowski said Kalish might try walking on at Central Michigan next year. Up-and-comer: Woodstock coach John Oliveira liked what he saw from sophomore left-hander Justyn Eisenmenger last week in a 4-3 loss to Cary-Grove. Eisenmenger threw 22/3 innings, walked one and struck out six to keep the Streaks close after starter Austin Butts left with a sore shoulder. “He came in in a situation where there are runners on second and third and shut them down,” Oliveira said. “They had the bases loaded after that and he shut them down. That’s a sophomore acting like a senior.” Butts was examined by Woodstock’s trainer the next day and Oliveira said Butts’ injury was not serious. Nose for the game: Prairie Ridge third baseman Cal Aldridge will miss a week after he has surgery on his nose Wednesday. Aldridge recently took a bad-hop grounder to his nose, making it the second time in a year he has broken his nose. Wolves coach Glen Pecoraro will have Aldridge available for Tuesday’s game with Crystal Lake Central, but then he will miss time. “He might have to wear a plastic mask when he comes back,” Pecoraro said. “That kid is tough. He took one in the nose last summer with our [Prairie Ridge] 17U team and we were going to replace him. It took 15 minutes to stop the blood, but he went back in. The next kid hits a pea, right at him and he catches it and threw the guy out.” This time, Aldridge’s injury occurred in pregame warmups. Playing in pain: Cary-Grove shortstop-pitcher Dean Christakes suffered a broken bone in his right ring finger but is listed by Trojans coach Don Sutherland as day-to-day. “He broke it sliding into second base against Barrington,” Sutherland said. “He played against Grayslake Central on Friday but wanted to rest it Saturday, Sunday and Monday.” Great timing: Give Katie Bogda, the wife of Crystal Lake South coach Brian Bogda, credit for beneficial use of an off day. She had the couple’s second child, son William Daniel (7 pounds, 13 ounces), on Sunday morning. Brian Bogda was able to attend an indoor practice with the team Monday before heading back to visit at the hospital. He said Katie and William are doing well.

WHITE SOX

Jackie Robinson’s sacrifices not lost on Sox Baseball pioneer will be honored Tuesday by MLB By TONI GINNETTI tginnetti@suntimes.com White Sox hitting coach Todd Steverson knows what Jackie Robinson meant to African Americans like him. But a look around any baseball clubhouse today reminds him what Robinson meant to the game. “You have to think about it in that context,” he said. “Seeing the diversity in the game now – Cubans, players from the Dominican Republic,

Panama, the world. The opportunity wouldn’t have been there without Branch Rickey and the Dodgers allowing Jackie Robinson to be the first [player of color] and maybe the strongest to play this game.” Every team will pay homage Tuesday to what Brooklyn Dodgers president Rickey and Robinson did April 15, 1947. Since 2004, Major League Baseball has held the annual Jackie Robinson Day to mark the anniversary, with every player wearing Robinson’s No. 42 – retired for every team since 1997 except for the players who were wearing it then. The last was New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera, who took it off for the last time when he retired in September. Players of every ilk know Robin-

son’s story, but last year’s movie “42” imprinted more for many of them. “That movie gave an insight into the things he had to endure,” Sox coach Daryl Boston said. “We all knew, but seeing it on the big screen – it was well done. Daryl “My father played Boston in the Negro Leagues – not the bigger traveling teams but the Cincinnati Tigers. He would tell stories. He kept telling us he wanted to go to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City if it was the last thing he did. It was something we planned a few years ago, and we got to do it last year. It was a great experience.”

Sox infielder Marcus Semien, 23, remembers the book report he did in eighth grade on the Negro Leagues and Robinson. “I try to educate myself on as much as I can and do anything I could to educate myself on where a lot of my ancestors came from during that time, and the connection to baseball is really interesting to me,” he said. “I know Jackie Robinson was a man with a lot of courage and a lot of heart. To be able to focus on the game of baseball – that’s hard enough. Dealing with all the stuff that was going on at that time – he did a great job and opened a lot of doors for everyone. “I have a whole lot of respect for him and a whole lot of respect for these players who open these doors

for us. Even talking to Minnie Minoso, he was another guy who played in the Negro Leagues and played in the Major Leagues as well. Just to be able to focus on the game and play at such a high level, it’s amazing. “There’s a lot of talent in the world. Look at our team. We are a very diverse group and we all get along. It’s not like back in those days where guys had a problem with a person of color being on their same team.” That element of Robinson’s ordeal is what pitcher Donnie Veal thinks about. “I couldn’t imagine going through that – all the hardships and ridicule, and you still have to perform every day because it’s all riding on you,” he said. “Just think about that. It’s amazing he was able to do it.”

CUBS ANALYSIS

Soriano was last link to big time for Cubs By GORDON WITTENMYER gwittenmyer@suntimes.com NEW YORK – A lot of these Cubs in New York for this two-game interleague series with the Yankees have never played in the Bronx, much less the new, sixth-year Yankee Stadium. But almost everywhere they look Tuesday and Wednesday night, they’ll see reminders of what they might have been – and used to be. From the free-agent pitcher they committed an offseason to chasing, without getting him. To the manager the business-side execs claimed they could land, without getting him. To the outfielder who remains the highest paid player on the Cubs’ books this year – the last big-money, star-power player they had, until trading Alfonso Soriano to the Yankees for a Class A pitching prospect last July. New Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka? “Is he pitching? Cool,”

Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija said. “I’m more excited to see Soriano. Soriano’s one of my favorite teammates I ever played with, man.” That was a universal sentiment in the clubhouse when Soriano finally Alfonso approved the trade that sent Soriano him back to his original team. But more than the often underrated teammate he was, Soriano is the $136 million link to the last time the Cubs could dream of Yankee-like Octobers. The link to the last time they were big-market players in the game – to a time when free agent pitchers (CC Sabathia, for one) used to tell friends playing for the Cubs that they’d rather sign in Chicago than New York. To win. Now second-tier free agent pitchers trying to build value line up for one-year “flip”

deals, a rotation-spot commitment and a chance to go to a contender in July. Soriano wasn’t the ideal free-agent fit when ownership ordered the win-now spending spree after the 2006 season just ahead of Tribune Company’s sale. But he was the biggest name, the one they wanted bad enough that then-president John McDonough personally added years and millions to close the deal. The eight-year, $136 million deal came to define Soriano’s almost seven-year tenure in Chicago and influenced an often glove-hate, quick-toboo relationship between the streaky hitter and Wrigley faithful. But a constantly upbeat and energetic Soriano never wanted a day off, often played hurt, led younger players with his attitude and work ethic, and the Cubs don’t make the playoffs in 2007 without him – maybe not in 2008 either. A two-time All-Star with

the Cubs, he played under three managers, three ownership groups, two front office regimes, hit 29 or more homers three times – four if you count last year – and even reinvented himself into a statistically above-average left fielder at age 36. For all the criticism that came with his contract, he has come surprisingly close to living up to it. Who would have predicted 34 homers and 101 RBIs in the seventh year of the deal? Soriano represents something the organization has lost, at least for now. Its bigleague compass, maybe. Its big-market muscle, for sure. But also something as simple as what Lou Piniella used to call Cubbie Swagger. Remember what that looked like? If not, then take a good look these next two nights at the smiling, 38-yearold kid wearing high socks and pinstripes, the one trying to find October every time he swings the biggest bat in the place.

BULLS 108, MAGIC 95

Bulls refuse to let bad vibes linger Dunleavy leads win 1 day after road loss to Knicks By JOE COWLEY jcowley@suntimes.com CHICAGO – Disappointment shouldn’t linger at this point in the season. And when your coach is Tom Thibodeau, it’s just about forbidden. After the Bulls fell short Sunday in New York in what center Joakim Noah called “the biggest game of the season,’’ you figured it was going to be a long night for the Magic. Thanks to 22 points from Mike Dunleavy, the Bulls (4833) beat Orlando, 108-95, at the United Center on Monday in the last home game of the regular season. Was there really any doubt there would be a bounce-back? With Thibodeau coaching every game like it’s a Game 7, the Bulls are basically steeled for the playoffs. “That preparation has definitely helped us,’’ guard Kirk Hinrich said. “It’s made us who we are. That’s just kind of the makeup of this group and the beliefs that [Thibodeau] goes by. Us as players, there’s something to be said about just coming in, preparing. You feel prepared, you’re confident, and that goes a long way.’’ That confidence was on display in the third quarter against the Magic (23-58). The Bulls had a 13-point lead at the half, but the Magic made things interesting to start the second half, cutting the deficit to three with 4:24 left in the third quarter. A Dunleavy 3-pointer, a Carlos

Next for the Bulls Bulls at Charlotte, 6 p.m. Wednesday, CSN, AM-1000 Boozer jumper, a Jimmy Butler layup and foul and two more free throws, then a little Jimmer Fredette – four of his 17 points – and the Bulls were up 81-70 to start the fourth quarter. “Playing with high intensity like we do all year helps,’’ Dunleavy said. “I certainly am going to keep the same approach in the playoffs.’’ First things first, and that means rolling through their last regular-season game Wednesday night in Charlotte and hoping for some help if they want the No. 3 seed. They are still tied with Toronto, but the Raptors hold the tiebreaker. The good news is Toronto has to travel to New York to face a Knicks team that has played well lately. Notes: D.J. Augustin was not with the team. His wife had a baby boy earlier in the day. ... The Bulls continued to tweak the bench Monday, announcing they signed forward Greg Smith for the rest of the season and waived Tornike Shengelia. Shengelia was acquired from the Nets in late January, when the Bulls sent Marquis Teague AP photo to Brooklyn. In the 6-foot-10 Smith, the Bulls added a more Bulls guard Jimmer Fredette goes in for a layup past Orlando Magic forward Andrew Nicholson during the experienced player. second half Monday at the United Center. Fredette scored 17 points, and the Bulls won, 108-95.

BLACKHAWKS

Toews, Kane return from injuries in high spirits By MARK LAZERUS mlazerus@suntimes.com CHICAGO – The Blackhawks’ defense of their 2013 Stanley Cup got off to a positive start Monday when the first two skaters for an optional workout stepped on the ice at Johnny’s West. Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews. That automatically makes the Blackhawks stronger than they’ve been in two weeks as they prepare to face the Blues in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs Thursday in St. Louis. Kane has missed the past 12 games with a sprained knee. Toews missed the past six games with an unidentified upper-body injury after taking a hit from Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik. Although their return is the best news yet for a Hawks team that sloshed it way through the second half of the regular season, it

doesn’t come without some trepidation in the form of two huge questions: How effective will Toews and Kane be in their first real games? And how quickly can the Blackhawks hit full stride once Toews and Kane are re-introduced to the lineup? Toews said he felt “really good” and “absolutely” recharged after skating Monday with Kane, goaltenders Corey Crawford and Antti Raanta and defenseman Michal Rozsival and proclaimed himself ready to go for the playoffs. “I don’t feel like I lost anything,” Toews said. “It was only a short while to be away from playing. I’m not too worried about being rusty or any adjustment I have to go through. “For anyone who’s been playing right until the end of the season, it’s going to be an adjustment with the speed of the playoffs. So everyone’s going to have to step it up a

First-round schedule Thursday: @ St. Louis, 7 p.m. (NBCSN, CSN) Saturday: @ St. Louis, 2 p.m. (NBC) Monday: vs. St. Louis, 7:30 p.m. (CNBC, CSN) April 23: vs. St. Louis, 8:30 p.m. (NBCSN, CSN) *April 25: @ St. Louis, 7 p.m. (NBCSN, CSN) *April 27: vs. St. Louis, 2 p.m. (NBC) *April 29: @ St. Louis, TBD (CSN) * if necessary little bit.” Toews’ amazing record of accomplishment in hockey is built on a foundation of self-control, self-confidence and never showing weakness. If he were anything less than 100 percent he wouldn’t tell us. On the other hand, when

Jonathan Toews – with his two Stanley Cups and two Olympic gold medals – says he’s more rested than rusty, who can argue with him? Toews figures to be as effective and productive as when he left. His injury isn’t going to prevent him from doing what he does best – which is being at the right place at the right time. And, as with every other facet of his game, Toews has history on his side. In 2012, he missed the final 22 games of the regular season with a concussion. He returned for the playoff opener and needed all of 4:04 to score the Hawks’ first goal against the Phoenix Coyotes. He added an assist and was a plus-4 through the first two games of that series, both on the road. Kane’s return comes with a little more uncertainty. Like Toews, he feels rested and recharged and ready to go. But the nature of his injury – a knee – and the dynam-

ic nature of his game leaves even Kane a little less definite about his effectiveness in Game 1. “I feel pretty good,” Kane said. “While the team was on the road, myself and Johnny did some contact drills just to kind of gauge ourselves where we’re at … so I guess we’ll know a little bit more in practice [Tuesday] and Wednesday. “But I think we’re at the point now where you feel properly healed and if you play it’s not going to hurt it any more than if you played at a later date.” Coach Joel Quenneville didn’t have any concern about either player. He’s putting his faith in the fact that they are Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. “We know they’re ready,” Quenneville said. “They haven’t played games in a while. But the level they’re accustomed to playing at, they should be fine.”

10 things to watch in the Stanley Cup playoffs Here’s a look at 10 things to watch when the NHL playoffs begin Wednesday with a new format, some stars returning from injuries and renewed rivalries: NEW LOOK: Forget what you knew about how teams matched up in the playoffs. When the league went from having six divisions to four this season as part of its realignment, the plan for postseason was also altered. Two wild cards were added in each conference, and at least half the first-round series were guaranteed to have teams face division opponents. IN THE EAST: The Atlantic Division-winning and defending Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins will face the wild card Detroit Red Wings in the opening round. The team that advances will face the division’s second-place Tampa Bay Lightning or third-place Montreal Canadiens. The Metropolitan Division-champion Pittsburgh Penguins will play the wild card Columbus Blue Jackets, and the winner moves on to face the division’s second or third-place teams, the New York Rangers or Philadelphia Flyers. OUT WEST: The Pacific Division-champion Anaheim Ducks are set to match up with the wild card Dallas Stars, the fifth team in from the Central, in the only interdivision series. The winner will play the Pacific’s second place San Jose Sharks or Los Angeles Kings.

The Central champion Colorado Avalanche face the wild card Minnesota Wild, and the team that advances will match up with the division’s second- or third-place teams, the St. Louis Blues or defending Stanley Cup-champion Blackhawks. ON THE MEND: The Hawks expect to have Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane in the lineup when they play Thursday at St. Louis after each had long layoffs to heal injuries. Kane has been out since hurting his left knee March 19 – against the hard-hitting Blues. Tampa Bay might have to get to the second round to have goaltender Ben Bishop on the ice. Bishop has been out since last week with an upper-body injury and isn’t going to be re-evaluated until early next week. “It’s unfortunate, not just for our team, but for Ben,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. “He’s had a great run with us this year.” Tampa Bay has to hope Anders Lindback, who has played in one playoff game previously, makes the most of his opportunity to play in net. BUCKLE UP: One of the many intriguing matchups in the opening round has the 2012 Stanley Cup champion Kings against the Sharks for the third time in four postseasons. The Kings eliminated the Sharks in Game 7 of the second round last year after being eliminated by them in Game 6 of an opening-round series in 2011. Los Angeles and San Jose have played 22 times the past

three years, including the playoffs, and each has won 11 of those games. “We figured we were going to see them at some point,” Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle said. The Rangers and Flyers, whose arenas are about 100 miles apart, have met many times in the playoffs in the past, but not since 1997 when Philadelphia got past New York in five games and went on to lose in the Stanley Cup finals. PRESIDENTIAL PRIVILEGE: Boston had the best record in the regular season, giving the franchise its first Presidents’ Trophy since 1990. The Bruins can be pardoned for not being too cocky about their chances because they lost three of four matchups this season against the Red Wings, who are in a 23rd straight postseason. “All of the pressure is going to be on them,” Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard said. “They’ve got to win, we’re not supposed to. We’ve got to make it as hard as possible on them.” CROSBY’S CHANCE: Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby won the Art Ross Trophy for the first time since he really was a kid, scoring a league-high 120 points during the 2006-07 season as a 19-year-old, second year pro. Crosby crushed the competition in scoring, reaching the 100-point mark for the fifth time in his career to finish 17 points ahead of Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf. “There’s so much more to his game than just scoring, but it is pretty amazing to see,” Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma said.

WELCOME BACK: The Stars are in the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Columbus is still playing for just the second time in its 13-season history and first since 2009. The Avalanche are playing among the league’s best after three years of missing the postseason. The Lightning are back in the 16-team tournament for the first time since 2011. Dallas forward Tyler Seguin was in the postseason the previous three years in Boston, and he’s got advice to share with teammates: “A big thing with the playoffs is, you’ve got to hate the other team.” SELANNE’S SWAN SONG: Ducks star Teemu Selanne plans to retire after this season, ending a 21-season run that includes a Stanley Cup in 2006. The 43-year-old “Finnish Flash” averaged less than half a point a game for the first time in a decade. Selanne has become a supporting player on a talented team that should advance for the first time since 2009. WOE CANADA: The hockey-crazed country north of the U.S. border is represented by only one team – Montreal – in the playoffs. It has been 41 years since that was true, and back then, the Scotty Bowman-led Canadiens won one of their NHL-record 23 championships. • AP sports writers Fred Goodall, Josh Dubow, R.B. Fallstrom and AP freelance writer Dan Scifo contributed to this report.

Heat lose at Washington; Pacers clinch No. 1 seed WASHINGTON – The Miami Heat opted for rest for LeBron James and Chris Bosh over the pursuit of the Eastern Conference’s top seed, and the Washington Wizards capitalized in a 114-93 breeze of a game Monday night that clinched the No. 1 seed for the Indiana Pacers. Trevor Ariza scored 25 points for the Wizards, who shot 59 percent and made 14 3-pointers and remained one game ahead of the Charlotte Bobcats in the race for the East’s No. 6 seed. Washington is trying to avoid dropping to seventh so that it can avoid the Heat in the first round of the playoffs – when LeBron and Co. will be back. Michael Beasley scored 18 points for the Heat, who will be the No. 2 seed when the playoffs begin this weekend. The Heat began the day still in contention for the top spot, but they would have needed to win their last two games and have Indiana lose to Orlando on Wednesday because the Pacers hold the head-to-head tiebreaker. Figuring it would be better to be fresh for the postseason, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra sat James and Bosh, saying they were dealing with “the residual of a long season.”

Trotz won’t be back as coach of Predators NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Barry Trotz, the NHL’s longest tenured head coach with one team and the only coach the Predators have ever known, will not be back for a 16th season with Nashville. The Predators announced Monday they have told Trotz his contract will not be renewed and that they are starting a search for a new coach immediately. Trotz is being offered a job in the team’s hockey operations department, although the twotime Jack Adams finalist could be a top coaching target for other teams. Missing the playoffs two straight seasons – the first time since 2001-02 and 2002-03 – was too much for a franchise that needs to reach the postseason to sell tickets and generate crucial revenue. Trotz’s contract expires June 30.

Prosecutor says Pistorius is staging outbursts PRETORIA, South Africa – Oscar Pistorius came under intense pressure Monday at his murder trial from the chief prosecutor, who dismissed his account of how he killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp as a flimsy web of lies and accused the Olympian of staging emotional outbursts to mask difficulty in answering a barrage of probing questions. His voice quavering at times, Pistorius struggled to explain alleged inconsistencies in his testimony and broke down sobbing on two occasions, forcing Judge Thokozile Masipa to temporarily halt proceedings. Prosecutor Gerrie Nel was sometimes quick to acknowledge Pistorius’ distress – possibly to allow him time to recover and avoid any defense argument that he is not getting a fair trial – but also said the athlete was frantically trying to shore up a fabricated story.

Sun take Ogwumike in WNBA draft, trade Charles UNCASVILLE, Conn. – Minutes after taking Stanford’s Chiney Ogwumike with the top pick in the WNBA draft Monday night, the Connecticut Sun made a blockbuster deal to trade 2012 MVP Tina Charles to the New York Liberty. The Sun acquired the Liberty’s fourth pick this year, which turned out to be Alyssa Thomas, as well as Kelsey Bone and New York’s first round pick next year. Charles had told the Sun that if she wasn’t traded she’d sit out this year. The Chicago Sky took N.C. State’s Markeisha Gatling with the 10th pick. – Wire reports

BEARS ANALYSIS

For once, need for offensive tackle is low By ARTHUR ARKUSH

Bears online

aarkush@chicagofootball.com After beginning last season with four new starters along the offensive line, the Bears expect to return the same starting combination up front for the first time since 2007, the year after their last Super Bowl appearance. The Bears were one of three clubs whose offensive line started every game in the same spot a season ago. Thus, it’s the first time in recent memory that targeting offensive linemen in the draft isn’t a top priority. No one along the front wall is more entrenched than left tackle Jermon Bushrod, who in 2013 stabilized the blind side of Jay Cutler (and Josh McCown) after receiving almost $18 million guaranteed as part of a five-year pact last spring. Bushrod is a notch below the H. Rick Bamman – hbamman@shawmedia.com NFL’s elite left tackles, but Bears tackle Jordan Mills blocks the Dallas Cowboys’ George Selvie offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer’s former pupil in New on Dec. 9 at Soldier Field.

For more Bears coverage leading up to the NFL draft, visit Chicago Football.com.

Orleans is a terrific fit with the Bears and a massive upgrade over anything else they’ve had at the position in recent memory. Jordan Mills, selected in the fifth round (163rd overall) last April, led the NFL in performance-based pay after playing in more than 70 percent of the Bears’ offensive snaps as the starting right tackle. Mills experienced his share of struggles as a rookie – especially handling speed rushers off the edge – but he’s a tireless worker and one who should benefit from having a full offseason to work on his technique. The Bears re-signed veteran Eben Britton, whose primary role last season was as an extra offensive tackle in

heavy formations. A former second-round pick, Britton is a valuable depth player who can fill in on the right side if needed. The Bears also have an interesting jar on the shelf in Joe Long, plucked off the Steelers’ practice squad by general manager Phil Emery late last season. The brother of former All-Pro Jake Long, Joe Long is only 24, and offers intriguing length and versatility. Of course, we must also mention another Long, 2013 rookie stud Kyle, who was terrific at right guard but could have a future at left tackle because of his rare athleticism. Emery has upgraded the talent level at tackle, but Mills took enough lumps as a rookie that the Bears could make him compete for the starting spot. Kyle Long is the prototype for what Emery will be searching for in the draft: a superior athlete with versatility and room to grow. Kromer employs a

zone-blocking scheme, which requires offensive linemen who have the foot speed to quickly reach second-level defenders and the intelligence and awareness to understand angles and work in concert with other linemen. Emery’s aggressive offseason suggests the Bears are all in for 2014, meaning they’ll likely covet immediate help on defense in the first couple of rounds. The first opportunity to pounce on offensive tackles could be in Mills’ territory a season ago, fifth round and beyond. With starters in place, the Bears could be more inclined to acquire developmental players. Former Boise State tackle and Shea McClellin teammate Charles Leno Jr. could be a target for Emery in the same area Mills was selected last year. McClellin has struggled to make the transition to the pros, but Leno has the type of raw athletic traits Emery loves.

Marengo NFL NOTES Jackson joins Redskins’ voluntary workouts grads back in game The ASSOCIATED PRESS

Ranzino crouched and waited to burst forward for his standing long jump. “Let’s go, Chuck!” “Let’s go, Chuckie!” “Let’s go, Chuckster!” He landed at 6 feet on the nose. The measurement was important, but not as much as the camaraderie that drew Ranzino back to football after five years away. “At the time [my high school career ended], I was like, ‘OK, I can step back and have a break from it,’ ” said Ranzino, who works at Marengo High School as a one-on-one aide in the special education program. “And that turned into a lot of years of a break. Finally, one day, I just realized I really wanted to be out there. I missed that vibe and that family feeling, that team feeling.” A buddy told Ranzino about a local semipro team called the Eagles, and he tried out last year. He made the team, and although it offered no money to its players, it did offer Ranzino a much-needed dose of competition and camaraderie. “I’ve always made tremendous amounts of friends in this sport,” Ranzino said. “The people I played all through high school with, to this day, we still act like a family, we act like a team. We can always call on each other when we need anything. “And with the guys that I’ve started to become close with on the Eagles, I’ve found that it’s very much the same. If I need anything, they’re there.” Ranzino quickly transformed from a rookie to a recruiter. He brought several friends from Marengo to this year’s tryouts, and all expect to make the team. Easterline was grateful for the invite. At 5-foot-4 and 150 pounds, the shifty running back was told by college coaches that he was too small to play at the next level. Instead, he is attending McHenry County College to become a personal trainer. In the meantime, the 2013 Marengo graduate is thrilled to play football again. “When I graduated, I had played football for 10 years with those guys,” Easterline said. “When you up and lose that, it’s just like it’s part of your family that’s missing. “Plus, when you go to football, there’s no stress. When you’re there, that’s your world. It’s like a getaway, basically.” Boyd agreed. On Monday, the 2007 Marengo graduate planned to head to the gym for another workout after his work shift ended in Geneva. Two months remained until the season opener. Hopefully, the time would go fast. “I’m loving it,” Boyd said. “I’m trying to see if more guys want to join in.” • Northwest Herald sports columnist Tom Musick can be reached at tmusick@shawmedia. com and on Twitter @tcmusick.

reports he entered his plea Friday in Santa Clara County Superior Court. In 2013, Culliver created controversy by expressing anti-gay sentiments in the leadup to the Super Bowl. He has since undergone sensitivity training and done outreach work with an organization that supports lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth. His case is among a string of recent legal problems for 49ers players, including the arrest Sunday of linebacker Aldon Smith. Smith was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport after authorities said he became belligerent during a security screening and threat-

ened that he had a bomb. The 24-year-old player was randomly selected for a secondary screening at Terminal 1 and became uncooperative with the process, airport police Sgt. Karla Ortiz said. She said he told a TSA agent that he had a bomb before walking to the gate. When airport police officers caught up with him, Ortiz said Smith became uncooperative and was taken into custody. Lions claim DE Brown: At Allen Park, Mich., the Detroit Lions claimed defensive end Kourtnei Brown off waivers. Brown was released by the Buffalo Bills last week. The former Clemson player was not drafted in 2012 and was cut

last year by the Bills before the regular season. Buffalo resigned him in January.

Agent: Vikings, safety Coleman cut deal: At Minneapolis, the Minnesota Vikings agreed to terms on a contract with free agent safety Kurt Coleman. Coleman’s agent, Blake Baratz, said the deal was done. The Vikings did not make an announcement. The seventh-round draft pick in 2010 out of Ohio State played the past four seasons for Philadelphia, starting 29 games, though none of those came last year. Coleman’s best season was 2011, when he had four interceptions, five passes defended and one forced fumble.

Gene Haas speaks Monday during a news conference in Concord, N.C., about forming a U.S.-based Formula One racing team.

FORMULA ONE

Haas plans to field U.S. team by 2016 By STEVE REED The Associated Press CONCORD, N.C. – NASCAR team owner Gene Haas is out to prove that an American-based team can succeed in the Formula One racing series. “I think we can beat the Europeans at their own game,” Haas said Monday at a news conference. Haas said he plans to field a team “Haas Formula” either in 2015 or 2016, depending on how long it takes to find an engine supplier and get things up and running. Haas Formula would become the first American-based Formula One team since Parnelli Jones Racing in 1974-76, which employed Mario Andretti as its driver. The FIA granted entry to the American-based USF1 team in 2009 but it was a major failure and never hit the grid in part of because of a lack of financial backing. As a result, there is plenty of skepticism when it comes to Haas’ foray into the Formula One world. “It’s extremely hard to do,” Haas said. “I wouldn’t be doing it if I thought I was going to fail. But that’s the challenge – proving other people wrong.” Haas said he expects the

venture into Formula One racing to cost billions of dollars. “Every week it goes up by another billion,” he said with a grin. However, he said he has better resources than the failed USF1 team, which puts him ahead of the curve. Haas is the owner of CNC machine manufacturer Haas Automation, one of the largest machine tool builders in the world. He recently said the company, which is based in California, currently exceeds $1 billion in annual sales. He also operates the Windshear wind tunnel, one of the most sophisticated wind tunnels for the testing of car aerodynamics in the world. “USF1 was a basically startup that had no resources whatsoever and didn’t have a racing team and it took on a huge challenge,” Haas said. “I admire the fact they took that challenge. “But on the other hand I’m partners with Tony Stewart in a very successful (NASCAR) racing team and I have a machine tool company that has the capability of building the most sophisticated machines in the world. ... I have a lot of the resources and infrastructure that is necessary to succeed.”

ASHBURN, Va. – DeSean Jackson reported for the Washington Redskins’ voluntary offseason workout program after skipping the first week to take a vacation. The Redskins tweeted a photo of their biggest offseason acquisition working out in the weight room Monday, and the three-time Pro Bowl receiver tweeted a photo of his No. 11 jersey in his locker. Jackson wore No. 10 with the Philadelphia Eagles and had said he would try to see if franchise player Robert Griffin III – the Redskins’ current No. 10 – would be willing to switch. Griffin quickly nixed

the idea. Jackson signed with Washington on April 2, less than a week after getting released by the Eagles. The Redskins started their workouts the next week, but Jackson went ahead with his vacation. 49ers’ legal woes: At San Jose, Calif., San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor hit-and-run charges and felony possession of brass knuckles. Culliver was arrested March 28 after San Jose police said he struck a bicyclist, then rammed a witness’ vehicle that was blocking him from leaving until officers arrived. The San Jose Mercury News

HEALTH WATCH

TIP OF THE WEEK

Get on the ball for health A lot of people walk into the gym with certain body parts on their minds – they want to target the triceps, focus on the inner thighs or work their biceps to exhaustion. Isolating muscles definitely has its purpose and place, but in today’s world, it’s all about “functional fitness.” Haven’t heard of the latest gym buzzword? The goal of functional fitness is to train movements, not just muscles. Sometimes called movementbased exercise, functional exercises work multiple muscle groups at a time in order to build a body capable of doing real-life activities. Why? Our bodies are meant to function both inside and outside of the gym. When you lift a suitcase into an overhead compartment, a lone bicep is not doing all the work. Muscles always team up to carry the load, and functional fitness will help your body do this better. When you work multiple parts of your body simultaneously, you not only improve your overall strength but you burn more calories, more fat and increase your flexibility. If you’re new to functional fitness, focus on these key words at the gym: push, pull, squat, hinge and lunge. Any exercise that involves one of these five motions is guaranteed to work more than one muscle at a time. For example, your quads will be challenged on a leg extension machine, but your quads plus your hamstrings, calves and glutes will be worked with a squat.

Policy problems Some plans refuse to cover medical costs related to suicide

STOCK.XCHNG

By MICHELLE ANDREWS Kaiser Health News Dealing with the aftermath of a suicide or attempted suicide is stressful enough. But some health plans make a harrowing experience worse by refusing to cover medical costs for injuries that are related to suicide – even though experts say in many cases such exclusions aren’t permitted under federal law. Yet patients or their loved ones often don’t realize that. Under the 2006 federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, employment-based health plans can’t discriminate against an individual member by denying eligibility for benefits or charging more because they have a particular medical condition such as diabetes or depression. Insurers, however, are allowed to deny coverage for all members for injuries caused by a specific activity or for those that arise from a particular cause spelled out in the policy. These are called “source-of-injury” exclusions. So an insurer that generally covers head injuries or broken bones could decide not to cover those injuries if they’re caused by risky recreational activities such as skydiving or bungee jumping. In a similar vein, insurers sometimes apply source-of-injury exclusions to injuries that are “intentionally self-inflicted,” including suicide or attempted suicide.

Medical conditions Mental health advocates and government experts point to the HIPAA rules, noting source-of-injury exclusions aren’t allowed if they’re the result of a medical condition. So if someone is severely depressed and sustains injuries from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, for example, the health plan can’t deny claims for medical treatment, experts say, if the plan generally would cover the treatment for someone whose wounds were not selfinflicted. Further, the 2006 regulations “make clear that such source-of-injury exclusions cannot be imposed even if the mental health condition is not diagnosed before the injury,” said a spokesperson for the Department of Labor in an email. When a 24-year-old young woman with bipo-

“Suicide is a common exclusion. Insurers are all over the place on this ... ” Sara Rosenbaum, George Washington University, professor of health policy

lar disorder attempted suicide last year by taking an overdose of an anti-anxiety medication, her mother assumed the mother’s employer plan covering them both would pay the bills for her daughter’s emergency room visit and her three days in the hospital near her Fort Wayne, Ind., home. But the insurer declined to pay the $6,600 hospital charge, citing an exclusion for care related to suicide. “I knew I could appeal the decision, but I didn’t think I had any grounds to do so,” the mother said. “I thought that’s just the way it was.” After negotiating with the hospital, the bill was reduced by half, and her daughter has been paying the balance off in installments, she said.

Not a major issue for insurers “Suicide is a common exclusion,” said Sara Rosenbaum, a professor of health policy at George Washington University. “Insurers are all over the place on this, and state law varies tremendously.” In court cases arising from a denial of benefits, “if the suicide attempt is related to a diagnosis that was treated, typically (the courts) will not deny coverage,” said Ann Doucette, a George Washington University professor of arts and sciences who’s involved in research related to suicide. Still, the insurance industry says the issue has not raised major concerns. “It’s not something we’ve been hearing about,” said Susan Pisano, a spokesperson for America’s Health Insurance Plans, a trade group. About 38,000 people commit suicide annually, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. More than 90 percent of people who die by suicide have a mental health condition,

said Jennifer Mathis, director of programs at the Judge David L. Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law. Depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia are mental illnesses commonly associated with suicide. The HIPAA nondiscrimination rules apply to all employment-based health insurance. The health law extended those rules to the individual insurance market, including plans sold on and off the health insurance marketplaces. All individual market plans must cover mental health and substance use disorder services as well. Suicide exclusions historically have been more common on the individual market than the group market, experts say. Some plans currently offered on the health insurance marketplaces contain these clauses, said Carrie McLean, director of call centers at online health insurance vendor ehealthinsurance.

‘Medical/surgical claims’ Under the mental health parity law, health plans generally have to provide mental health and substance use disorder benefits that are comparable to benefits for medical/surgical care. But if a plan denies coverage following a suicide or suicide attempt, it’s probably not a parity issue, according to the DOL. “In the case of a suicide or attempted suicide, it is generally medical/surgical claims that are involved to treat physical injuries” rather than prescription drugs and therapy that would be covered by mental health parity requirements, the DOL spokesperson said. Questions about suicide exclusions in individual market plans should be directed to the state department of insurance or the federal Department of Health and Human Services, according to DOL. If someone is enrolled in a group plan that has a suicide exclusion, that person may file an appeal with the health plan.

NEW RESEARCH

Protein intake and mortality A high-protein diet during middle age was associated with higher mortality, in a new study announced by the National Institutes of Health. In adults older than 65, however, a high-protein diet was linked to lower mortality. Calorie restriction increases longevity in many animals, the National Institutes of Health says. It’s not known, however, if calorie restriction works by lowering calorie intake or by reducing the intake of protein or other nutrients.

Hearing tests now offered for 2-month-olds At times, it is difficult to be certain if an infant has hearing loss. However, it is important to determine if the baby is hearing impaired, because the sooner the diagnosis is made, the sooner services can be offered. Early treatment will improve the child’s speech and language development. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention introduced a program to identify hearing loss at an early age. More than 30 states now have newborn screening examinations to detect hearing loss. As a result of this early testing, the diagnosis of hearing loss, which previously was being made at 2½ years of age,

VIEWS Dr. Murray Feingold is now being made at age 2 months. Infants who do not pass the newborn screening test are scheduled for a follow-up visit for further evaluation and treatment. Unfortunately, about 40 percent of these patients do not attend follow-up visits. There are various reasons for this lack of following up, including the parents not understanding the importance of their child undergoing further evalua-

tions, or difficulty traveling to the diagnostic facility. Fortunately, high tech has come to the rescue to address the travel situation in the form of teleaudiology. Two-way tele-audiology consists of audio and video communication between the audiologist at one site and the patient at another site, closer to his or her home. At the patient’s site is an individual trained to do such things as positioning the otoscope, the instrument that is inserted into the infant’s ear, and applying the electrodes. Computers at both sites are connected to each other, as is the diagnostic equipment.

More than 30 states now have newborn screening examinations to detect hearing loss. Studies have determined tele-audiology has been successful. Published results have shown this technology is not only feasible but also provides similar high-quality evaluations as those done in-person. There also is evidence that using this technology closer to where the families live decreases the number of

patients who are lost in followup. This is good news because such follow-up examinations, and then instituting treatment programs, helps the youngster with a hearing loss reach his or her potential.

Massachusetts-based Dr. Murray Feingold is the physician-in-chief of The Feingold Center for Children, medical editor of WBZ-TV and WBZ radio, and president of the Genesis Fund. The Genesis Fund is a nonprofit organization that funds the care of children born with birth defects, mental retardation and genetic diseases.

A little ice helps wounded warriors’ pain By LENNY BERNSTEIN The Washington Post When you deploy to a war zone, Kevin Gatson said, your teammates are everything. You work with them, live with them, venture into combat with them, knowing your life quite literally depends on the guy next to you. You get to know what he’ll do in certain situations, where you need to be, what you need to do. “That team is essentially a lifeline,” the 34-year-old Army sergeant said. “You have to watch this guy’s back, and he had to watch yours ... Everyone had to look out for themselves and the person next to them.” A hockey team can be like that, too, he said. It looks like chaos on ice, but when you get to know your teammates, where they’ll be and when, you begin to forge that same kind of bond, in pursuit of another kind of victory. “I know if he moves the puck over here, I need to be over there to get his back. And if I go this way, he’s going to do this. “It’s that teamwork you had, only you’re doing it on the ice instead of in the fields,” Gatson said. And you’re doing it with guys who have only one leg. Or smashed feet. Or wornout hips. Gatson plays hockey sitting down, on a special sled that is perched on blades, with other wounded warriors from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Gatson still lives there almost four years after a hidden bomb destroyed his left leg and damaged his right so badly the doctors wanted to amputate it, too. One Saturday evening, I watched him set aside his above-the-knee prosthesis and climb into the sled before heading out onto the ice. He and his teammates on the USA Warriors ice hockey team were in full gear, with shoulder pads, helmets and face masks, but instead of a long hockey stick, each carried two shorter versions, one in each hand. At one end of each stick is a version of the blade you’d recognize if you’ve ever watched ice hockey. At the other are metal “picks” that bite into the ice. Players use that end to propel themselves across the ice with surprising speed. While Gatson and three other members of the sled

Wounded veterans participate in ice hockey practice in College Park, Md. “On the ice, a lot of our injuries go away,” Special Forces veteran Mike Davis said.

Wounded Army Sgt. Kevin Gatson said hockey replicates the teamwork he knew in the field and is “more of a workout than I had anticipated.” team practiced at one end of Herbert Wells Ice Rink in College Park, Md., about 16 members of the USA Warriors standing hockey team went through their drills at the other. You couldn’t tell under those hockey uniforms, but

every member of that team also has suffered a servicerelated injury. The team’s two goalies have only two good eyes between them, said Mike Davis, a 53-year-old former Army Special Forces soldier who needed two hip replace-

ments after making more than 200 parachute jumps. “On the ice, a lot of our injuries go away,” said Davis, who served in El Salvador, Lebanon and other parts of the Middle East. “Everybody here gets it,” he added.

The team has been around for about five years, but it took off about two years ago. The players travel the Northeast, the sled team battling other sled teams of players with various kinds of disabilities. The standing team competes against both disabled and ablebodied teams. They are funded by donations, money that pays for their equipment and travel. If a wounded warrior moves away but wants to continue playing on the sled team, it will pay to fly him in for a game. Gatson was on patrol in the Kandahar region of Afghanistan on July 12, 2010, when he and other troops had to climb a wall in their way. Two teams of soldiers made it over, and Gatson, the first man from the third unit, was just about to clear the barrier when the man ahead of him stepped on a pressure plate and a bomb buried in the wall exploded. It took Gatson’s left leg and left index finger, and his left thumb had to be amputated. His right leg was nearly destroyed as well. For more than a month after he made it back to Walter Reed, he had major or minor surgeries three days a week, rotating from the operating room to the intensive care unit and back again, he said. He doesn’t know how many operations he underwent.

“Honestly, I have no idea,” he said. “Quite a few. I am definitely no stranger to surgeries.” Doctors wanted to amputate his shattered right leg, but he wouldn’t let them. “I kept telling them, ‘I’m going to keep my leg,’ ” he said. Instead, he wore a kind of halo brace, known as an external fixator. It saved the leg but made sports impossible. When that came off, Gatson was introduced to sled hockey by an occupational therapist. “It was actually more of a workout than I had anticipated,” the Mississippi native recalled, “and it was actually pretty fun. I felt that I was getting much more of a workout than anything I was doing in physical therapy.” There’s also plenty of action, stick-handling and hitting, which Gatson likes. “Basically,” he said, “sled hockey is a way that a lot of people who really wouldn’t be considered athletes can be athletes.” And there is all that teamwork. When you’re wounded, “what you miss the most is the guys,” he said. “That team, that team you’re on. Everyone has that feeling of being on that team and knows what that’s like. And sled hockey brings that back.”

Signs of an abuser apply Take steps early to protect to women as well as men children from cyberbullying Dear Abby: I read your Jan. 8 column about the warning signs of an abuser. Would you use your influence to inform others men also are victims of abuse? My son was in a three-year relationship with a woman who scored 15 out of 15 on your list. We knew it was a toxic relationship, but he couldn’t see that. The night he came to us for help, battered and bloody, I finally took a stand. It took six months to get her out of his life. My son was ashamed to be a battered man, and she had told him men who call 911 go to jail. It kept him from calling. Please, Abby, help to change that. If you use this, please keep me anonymous. My son thinks I’m an “interfering mom,” but at least he’s not being abused anymore. – Interfering Mom Dear Mom: I’m glad you wrote so I can emphasize abusers can be members of both sexes, from every economic level and sexual orientation. I received a ton of mail about this: Dear Abby: Thank you for including both “he and she” in the warning signs of abusers. My second marriage was a sad and unhealthy rebound affair. My ex was attractive, talented and host to multiple addictions – risky sexual encounters

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips with men and women, cocaine, alcohol and marijuana. I became aware of her blackouts and outrageous behavior just before our wedding. I finally left after two years to avoid committing a crime in response to her physical abuse, chronic infidelities, psychological cruelty and pathological intoxication. Please urge men to report their abusers, file charges and flee bad situations. I had no way of knowing what lay ahead for me back then. Do you have advice for other men contemplating marriage to a pretty party girl? Today I’m happily married to a deeply beautiful and noble woman, and grateful to have found her. – Set Free In North

Carolina Dear Set Free: I think you’ve stated it well. All I can add is men who suffer physical abuse at the hands of a partner should go to an emergency room for treatment so their injuries can be documented, then file a formal complaint and end the relationship. Dear Abby: Gay people need to read those warning signs because abusers abound in the

gay community, too. I have gay and lesbian friends who were involved with abusers. Gay and lesbian centers offer counseling for this. LGBT people face the same problems as straights do. – Mike In Daytona Dear Abby: I spent four years in a relationship before I realized I was being abused. My lady friend pushed for a lifelong commitment within a month of our meeting, was jealous and controlling, shut my friends out, cursed and hit me on more than one occasion and, when I protested, she’d say she was “just trying to get my attention,” or “I only got what I deserved.” When I finally told her I was leaving, she threatened to kill me. I since have learned lots of men suffer psychological damage and physical danger from an abusive spouse or partner. Please inform your male readers they can get help from a skilled therapist or counselor by calling the Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men and Women at 888-7HELPLINE (888-7435754) in the U.S. and Canada.

Dear Dr. K: My daughter will be starting middle school this year. How can I protect her from cyberbullying? Dear Reader: Bullying can be particularly difficult during middle and high school, when popularity and peer acceptance feel like the most important parts of life. Adding technology to the mix makes it worse still. Cyberbullying is not simply bullying that takes place through electronic means. There are two unique problems with bullying through text messages or social media. First, if the bully keeps quiet about it, the bullying can be invisible to others. Just your child and the bully know about it. And if your child has trouble talking to you about it, no one else will know – not teachers, school counselors or your child’s friends. Second is the opposite problem made possible by modern technology: The bully can hurt your child by spreading false and hurtful stories very easily to large numbers of people, including most of your child’s classmates. Once something is out in cyberspace, it’s very hard to control it. For these reasons, cyberbullying can be particularly

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff damaging. It can lead to anxiety, depression, substance abuse – even suicide. It’s not easy to prevent cyberbullying. Probably the most important thing parents can do is talk to their children about what they do, see and experience online. Start these conversations early – as soon as your child starts using the Internet or a cellphone. Your child might not come to you if she experiences cyberbullying. For clues that it might be going on, watch for changes in behavior. Ask lots of questions if you notice this occurring. If your daughter does encounter any cyberbullying, report it. Some of it could be illegal and should be reported to the police. This includes threats or sexually explicit content. Even if it’s not illegal, all cyberbullying should be called out. After years of neglect, the problem of school bullying increasingly is being taken seriously. Ask your school’s advice about who the best person to help

would be. It might be a guidance counselor, or the parent of the bully. There are two sides to cyberbullying, and you also should talk to your daughter about not becoming a cyberbully herself. Let her know comments and posts, even offhand ones, can make people feel bad. Tell her bystanders also play an important role. Some kinds of bullying, particularly cyberbullying that involves widespread distribution of hurtful information, involve the actions of a group. Help your daughter understand she will become part of the bullying if she passes on hurtful comments, or laughs at or talks about the victim. But if she refuses to participate, stands up to the bully and stands up for the victim, she can help make things better. By being mindful of behaviors that indicate your daughter is bothered by something, and by gently inquiring, you might be able to detect bullying and work with your daughter to do something about it. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at www.askdoctork.com or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

Dick Gregory, a comedian, social activist and writer, said, “I wouldn’t mind paying taxes -- if I knew they were going to a friendly country.” On tax day in the United States, let’s examine a deal that ought not to be taxing for someone who remembers the bidding. First, though, look at the South hand. West deals and opens one club. After two passes, what should South do? In this balancing seat, the meanings for three of South’s bids change. The irst is a one-no-trump overcall. It is no longer strong. Now it is weak, showing 11 to an unappealing 15 points. North then wisely passes, leaving South in one notrump. How should he plan the play after West leads his fourth-highest club and East puts up the jack? Note that with a strong notrump, South would double irst and hope to rebid one no-trump on the next round (if an eight-card major-suit it was not revealed). Here, that would be easy. But if West’s opening bid were one of a major, South might be forced to rebid two no-trump, which

is uncomfortably high. Then, a balancing one-no-trump overcall might contain a poor 16 points. South has only four top tricks. The best chance for the extra tricks lies in diamonds. From the bidding, West is a heavy favorite to hold the ace. So declarer should win the second (or irst) club trick in his hand with the ace and lead a low diamond to dummy’s king. After it wins, he returns a diamond and plays low from his hand. When the ace comes tumbling down, South has seven tricks: two hearts, three diamonds and two clubs.
