Airport runway to get upgrade LITH allocated federal money for $5M project By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com LAKE IN THE HILLS – The runway at the village’s airport is slated to get an upgrade. The village has been awarded a federal grant to help with the reconstruction of the 3,800foot runway at the airport, according to a news release. The grant would pay for 90 percent of a $5 million project to reconstruct and widen the

existing runway to at least 75 feet from 50 feet and bring it up to current Federal Aviation Administration standards. “This will be a significant safety improvement to airport operations,” Airport Manager Michael Peranich said in a news release. “While it will not allow the airport to serve larger aircraft, it makes landing under crosswind conditions much safer and will eliminate the current waiver to runway

width provided by the FAA.” The details and timing of the actual construction will be determined as part of the design work, the village said. Peranich said it will probably be at least two years before physical work on the project takes place and is anticipated to begin after the completion of the final phase of the parallel taxiway relocation. Rebuilding the airport’s only runway would probably

take about two months, Peranich said. How the project will be staged has yet to be determined. Village staff is set to work with engineering firm Crawford, Murphy and Tilly Inc. to plan and design the runway project. The federal grant covers 90 percent of the $5,053,000 project costs.

EARTH DAY AN OPPORTUNITY TO DISPOSE OF OLD ELECTRONICS

Urge action from state lawmakers By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Illinois mayors from Rockford to Peoria reiterated their call Monday for lawmakers to overhaul local police and fire pension systems to avoid strains on municipal budgets, but there were few signs the Legislature would take up the issue anytime soon. No legislation has been drafted, talks still are in preliminary stages, and several mayors expressed skepticism they’d get a plan approved in an election year. The Legislature only recently approved a plan for two of Chicago’s systems after grappling for years with how to address the state’s nearly $100 billion in unfunded pension liability. But during a news conference Monday the mayors made it clear they wanted in on the discussions, especially after lawmakers approved legislation for Chicago’s municipal employees and laborers. The city has yet to address the $10 billion shortfall in police and fire retirement system funds. Mayors from Chicago’s suburbs and elsewhere described a phenomenon familiar to Illinoisans: Rising pension costs are crowding out funding for other services and municipalities are dealing

Poll numbers paint Madigan unfavorably A poll taken for Rasmussen Reports earlier this month found that Gov. Pat Quinn’s unfavorable rating was 55 percent. That’s pretty darned bad, and perhaps the worst in the nation. But Gov. Quinn ain’t got nothing on Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan. A new Capitol Fax/We Ask America poll found Madigan’s unfavorable rating to be an almost mind-boggling 65 percent. The poll of 836 likely voters was taken April 14 and had a margin of error of plus-minus 3.4 percent. Only 20 percent of likely voters had a favorable impression of the longtime House speaker. Years of negative publicity, the state’s many, many problems, the Republican Party’s decades-long accusations that he’s holding the state back and Madigan’s historically long tenure are undoubtedly driving these horrible numbers. According to the poll, 55 percent of respondents would be less likely to vote for a local candidate if that candidate was supported by Madigan. That number alone ought to give the House Republicans reason to hope. All of Madigan’s candidates could be hurt this year just because of the mere fact that Madigan is backing a Democrat. When asked whether Madigan has been a help or a hindrance to the state’s economic and fiscal recovery,

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Rich Miller 65 percent said he’s been a hindrance, while only 20 percent said he’s been a help. Ouch. Even Democrats don’t like the guy. Fifty percent of Democrats say they have an unfavorable view of Madigan, versus 30 percent who view him in a favorable light. According to the poll, a plurality of 38 percent of Democrats said they’d be less likely to vote for a Madigan-backed candidate, with 33 percent saying they’d be more likely and 29 percent saying it would make no difference. And a majority of 51 percent of Democrats said Madigan is a hindrance to the state’s recovery, with only 31 percent saying he’s helping, and the rest, 18 percent, saying he hasn’t made a difference either way. Men are more likely to dislike Madigan than women. Seventy percent of men (versus 60 percent of women) view him unfavorably. Sixty-three percent of men (versus a plurality of 48 percent of women) would be less likely to support a Madigan-backed candidate. And an overwhelming 72 percent

of men (58 percent of women) think Madigan has been a hindrance to the state’s economic and fiscal recovery. Chicagoans don’t much care for Madigan, either, but their ire pales in comparison to what the rest of the state thinks of him. Fifty-seven percent of Chicagoans have an unfavorable opinion of Madigan, while 63 percent of suburban Cook County voters, 66 percent of Downstaters and 72 percent of collar county residents have an unfavorable opinion of the longest serving House speaker in Illinois history. A plurality of 36 percent of Chicagoans would be less likely to vote for a Madigan-backed candidate (34 percent would be more likely), while 60 percent of suburban Cook and Downstaters and 62 percent of collar county voters would be less likely to vote for such a candidate. A strong majority of 56 percent of Chicagoans believe Madigan has been a hindrance to the state’s economic and fiscal recovery, while 65 percent of suburban Cook voters, 66 percent of Downstaters and 70 percent of collar county voters say the same. Seventy percent of whites have an unfavorable view of Madigan, 60 percent of whites would be less likely to vote for a Madigan-backed candidate and 69 percent of whites say he has

been a hindrance to progress. Among African-Americans, a plurality of 46 percent have an unfavorable view of him, they’re split 38-38 on backing a Madigan-supported candidate, and 50 percent say he’s been a hindrance to progress, compared to 34 percent who say he’s helped. Independents really, really don’t like Madigan. Seventy-seven percent have an unfavorable opinion of him (topping Republicans’ 73 percent). Sixty-four percent would be less likely to vote for a Madigan candidate (less than Republicans’ 72 percent). And 74 percent say he’s been a hindrance to the state’s progress (about the same as the Republicans’ 75 percent). The obvious point is that Madigan is the perfect bogeyman. After decades of persistent effort, he’s now known by enough people to potentially change the outcomes of campaigns, and not in a positive way. Gone appear the days when not enough people knew who he was to matter when voters headed to the polls. Also, if Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner decides to incorporate attacks on Madigan into his campaign theme, it’ll probably work.

SAN JOSE, Calif. – A 16-year-old boy scrambled over an airport fence, crossed a tarmac and climbed into a jetliner’s wheel well, then flew for five freezing hours to Hawaii – a misadventure that stirred concern about possible weak spots in the security system that protects the nation’s airline fleet. The boy, who lives in Santa Clara, Calif., and attends a local high school, hopped out of the wheel well of a Boeing 767 on the Maui airport tarmac Sunday. Authorities found him wandering around the airport grounds with no identification. He was questioned by the FBI and taken by ambulance to a hospital. He was unharmed. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu said the teen did not remember the flight. It was not immediately clear how the boy stayed alive in the unpressurized space, where temperatures can fall well below zero and the air is too thin for humans to stay conscious. An FAA study of stowaways found some went into a hibernation-like state. On Monday, authorities tried to determine how the boy slipped through multiple layers of security, including wide-ranging video surveillance, German shepherds and Segway-riding police officers.

Top GOP leader opposes Obama library in Ill. The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – The top Republican in the Illinois House criticized on Monday majority Democrats’ plan to offer $100 million in taxpayer money to lure Barack Obama’s presidential library to Chicago. Minority Leader Jim Durkin of Western Springs said the state cannot afford the investment when Illinois owes $7 billion in overdue

bills and has a $100 billion deficit in its employee pension programs. “It’s ironic that Democrats, who have been threatening drastic cuts in education and other state services if the ‘temporary’ income tax is allowed to expire, now want to spend $100 million in public funds on the Obama presidential library,” Durkin said in a prepared statement. “Where is this money going to come from?” Gov. Pat Quinn has pro-

posed making a 2011 income tax hike, set to roll back next year, permanent to avoid severe budget cuts. The Obama library measure’s sponsor, House Speaker Gov. Pat Michael Madi- Quinn gan, a Chicago Democrat, has pointed out that the funding would be money borrowed for the purpose of building the library,

He said a source of the money, and a way to pay it back, has yet to be determined, but it could Minority be included Leader Jim in a new longDurkin term, statewide construction program.

U.S. weighs curbing deportations By ERICA WERNER The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is weighing limiting deportations of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally who don’t have serious criminal records, according to two people with knowledge of his deliberations. The change, if adopted following an ongoing review ordered by President Barack Obama, could shield tens of thousands of immigrants now removed each year solely because they committed repeat immigration violations, such as re-entering the country illegally after having been deported, failing to comply with a deportation order or missing an immigration court date. However, it would fall short of the sweeping changes sought by activists. They want Obama to expand a two-yearold program that grants work

permits to certain immigrants brought here illegally as children to include other groups, such as the parents of any children born in the U.S. John Sandweg, who served until February as acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said he had promoted the policy change for immigrants without serious criminal Jeh Johnson records before his departure Homeland and that it was Security being weighed secretary by Johnson. An immigration advocate who’s discussed the review with the administration also confirmed the change was under consideration. The advocate spoke on condition of anonymity because the proceedings are confidential. “Any report of specific con-

siderations at this time would be premature,” Clark Stevens, a spokesman for the Homeland Security Department, said Monday. Stevens said Johnson “has undergone a very rigorous and inclusive process to best inform the review,” including seeking input from people within DHS as well as lawmakers of both parties, and other stakeholders. The approach outlined by Sandweg and the immigration advocate would change the existing priority categories that now include immigrants who’ve re-entered the country after they have been deported previously, and those who are fugitives from immigration proceedings. Such people would be taken off the priority list. The remaining priority categories focus on recent border-crossers and immigrants who pose a danger to national security or public safety or who’ve been convicted of

crimes. Some of those categories might also be refined or changed, and others could be added. “The time had come to focus ICE’s efforts exclusively on public safety and national security,” Sandweg said in explaining why he pushed for the change prior to his departure from the agency. He estimated that some 20,000 deported immigrants fell into the categories in question last year. The potential changes come as Johnson proceeds with a review ordered by Obama on how to make deportation policy more humane. With comprehensive immigration legislation stalled in the GOP-led House after passing the Senate last year, Obama has come under intense election-year pressure to stem deportations, which have neared 2 million on his watch, and allow more of the 11.5 million immigrants living illegally in the U.S. to stay.

The bodies of passengers aboard the Sewol ferry, which sank in the water off the southern coast, are carried by rescue workers upon arrival at a port Monday in Jindo, South Korea. Divers continued the work of recovering bodies from inside the sunken ferry Monday, as a newly released transcript showed the ship was crippled by confusion and indecision well after it began listing. The transcript suggests that the chaos may have added to a death toll that could eventually exceed 300.

Families’ hopes for ferry victims painfully humble By GILLIAN WONG The Associated Press JINDO, South Korea – One by one, coast guard officers carried the newly arrived bodies covered in white sheets from a boat to a tent on the dock of this island, the first step in identifying a sharply rising number of corpses from a South Korean ferry that sank nearly a week ago. Dozens of police officers in neon green jackets formed a cordon around the dock as the bodies arrived Tuesday. Since divers found a way over the weekend to enter the submerged ferry, the death count has shot up. Officials said Tuesday that confirmed fatalities had reached 104, with nearly 200 people still missing. If a body lacks identification, details such as height, hair length and clothing are posted on a white signboard for families waiting on Jindo island for news. The bodies are then driven in ambulances to two tents: one for men and boys, the other for women and girls. Families listen quietly outside as an official briefs them, then line up

South Koreans holding candles cry during a prayer Monday for people believed to have been trapped in the sunken ferry Sewol in Ansan, South Korea. and file in. Only relatives are allowed inside. For a brief moment there is silence. Then the anguished cries, the wailing, the howling. They have not known for nearly a week whether they should grieve or not, and now they sound like they’re being torn apart.

“How do I live without you? How will your mother live without you?” a woman cries out. She is with a woman who emerges from a tent crying and falls into a chair where relatives try to comfort her. One stands above her and cradles her head in her hands, stroking her face. “Bring back my daughter!” the woman cries, calling out her child’s name in agony. A man rushes over, lifts her on his back and carries her away. This heartbreak still awaits many families of those still missing from the submerged ferry Sewol, or at least those whose relatives’ bodies are ultimately recovered. Families who once dreamed of miraculous rescues now simply hope their loved ones’ remains are recovered soon, before the ocean does much more damage. “At first, I was just very sad, but now it’s like an endless wait,” said Woo Dong-suk, a construction worker and uncle of one of the students. “It’s been too long already. The bodies must be decayed. The parents’ only wish right now is to find the bodies before they are badly

decomposed.” About 250 of the more than 300 missing or dead are students from a single high school, in Ansan near Seoul, who were on their way to the southern tourist island of Jeju. Bodies are being identified visually, but family members have been providing DNA samples in case decomposition makes that impossible. The families, and South Koreans more broadly, have at times responded with fury. The captain initially told passengers to stay in their rooms and waited more than half an hour to issue an evacuation order as the Sewol sank. By then, the ship had tilted so much it is believed that many passengers were trapped inside. The captain, Lee Joon-seok, and two crew members have been arrested on suspicion of negligence and abandoning people in need, and prosecutors said Monday that four other crew members have been detained. On Monday night, prosecutors requested a court to issue a warrant to formally arrest these four people, a prosecution office said in a release late Monday.

taxes expires this year. Chicago, where Obama began his political career, wants to host his presidential papers. Hawaii, where he grew up, and New York, where he went to college, also expect to make bids to build the library in those states. Democrats hold a slim advantage on the Madigan-controlled House Executive Committee, which approved the $100 million proposal last week with no Republicans in attendance. A committee

member, Rep. Ed Sullivan, a Mundelein Republican, had planned to challenge that vote as a violation of House rules. But Madigan spokesman Steve Brown said Monday the matter would go again before the House Executive Committee on April 30 to silence criticisms. “In the history of the presidential library system, beginning in 1939, no public funds have ever been used to build a library,” Sullivan said. “Why break precedent now?”

The investment in polystyrene foam recycling comes as more municipalities and businesses are providing avenues for residents to recycle electronics, the last push the Defenders made in recycling, he said. “In a way, it’s a little reminiscent,” he said. “Back 20 years ago, we were the only place where you could recycle cans and bottles, and we were campaigning to have curbside recycling so everyone can recycle. ... We put ourselves out of business, but that was a good thing.” Tuesday is Earth Day, and polystyrene recycling is just one of the evolvements in recycling over recent decades. A state law that took effect Jan. 1, 2010, bans electronics from landfills, a measure advocated for because of the toxic heavy metals contained in electronics. Since then, a lot more businesses are accepting home electronics – the law also prevents businesses from charging private individuals a fee to recycle home electronics – and so are more municipalities. The Computer Recycling Center in Crystal Lake has been in the business for about

11 years, said co-owner John Niziolek II, whose primary business is Echelon Computers. Niziolek found his way into the recycling business somewhat by accident. Echelon Computers buys leased equipment, but not all the purchased equipment could be resold, he said. The pile started to grow, and they started looking for a way to recycle the computers. “Reuse is the best use, so whenever possible that’s the way to go,” Niziolek said. “As for the products that are obsolete or nonfunctional to the point of nonrepair, we take parts. ... The end of life commodities are not very profitable at all.” Ellinghausen was surprised by some of the electronics that people recycle through the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County’s monthly drives in Woodstock and McHenry. They get 32-inch flatscreen TVs, small flatscreen computer monitors and VCR players, he said. Anything that is functional gets separated and resold at their store in Woodstock. “We haven’t set the world on fire in terms of income that we generate from it, but it’s consistent with our goal of reuse,” Ellinghausen said.

Project part of ongoing safety improvements to the airport • AIRPORT Continued from page A1 project is slated to come from the state. The remaining five percent will be paid for from revenues generated at the airport, the village said. The runway reconstruction and taxiway relocation work are part of the ongoing safety improvements to the airport, which began in 2003 with upgrades to navigational aids. The most recent projects include a wildlife hazard assessment conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the relocation of Pyott Road, and the extension of perimeter fence around the airport. Relocation of the fuel facility and construction of a new fueling apron is scheduled to

take place this summer. Bids for the taxiway relocation are expected to open in about a year. “This is a great occasion for both Lake in the Hills and McHenry County,” Village President Paul Mulcahy said in a news release. “The work will have short-term impacts of improving the safety of the airport and creating construction jobs.” The most recent study by the Illinois Department of Transportation said the Lake in the Hills Airport has $28.7 million annual economic impact on the region. Runway reconstruction will further enhance this local impact, the village said. “Long term these improvements will support the economic development of McHenry County,” Mulcahy said.

suits challenging its constitutionality. Pension programs are created by state law, so only state legislators can make changes. The mayors said they’d like their plan to echo what the state did. Their suggestions included raising the retirement age and lowering annual cost-of-living adjustments. Larry However, Morrissey approving a Rockford plan before mayor lawmakers adjourn on May 31 will be difficult. Legislators have to approve a budget by then and face the question of what to do when a temporary income tax increase rolls back in January and leaves a roughly $1.6 billion revenue dip. Gov. Pat Quinn wants to extend the increase, which will be a hard sell ahead of November. Several mayors acknowl-

edged the difficulty. “The math, in fact, is easy,” said Rockford Mayor Larry Morrissey. “The politics, unfortunately, is hard.” State Rep. Elaine Nekritz, a Northbrook Democrat central in previous pension talks, said a municipal pension bill would be complex to draft and debate in a few weeks. Senate President John Cullerton’s spokeswoman Rikeesha Phelon said it was critical to “maintain momentum fueled by recent pension agreements.” State Sen. Terry Link, a Waukegan Democrat who’s in on talks with mayors and unions, said negotiating specifics was a “long ways” away. But he said the goal was to get a deal before the end of the spring session. Unions contend the plan the state approved is unconstitutional and mayors’ efforts are a way to avoid making required contributions to pension funds.

State law will require cities to make required contribution increases in 2016 or the state will do so by diverting state grant money to cities into pension funds. Mayors say they’ll have to make steep cuts to meet pension obligations. State statistics show police and fire retirement funds have an average of 55 percent of the money needed, down 20 percent the past two decades. Mayors claim part of the problem has been legislator-approved “pension sweeteners” with no additional money to pay for them. Illinois Police Benevolent and Protective Association director Sean Smoot said public safety officials face risks each day and should receive their constitutionally-protected benefits. He said cities haven’t kept up with required payments and are now facing tough decisions because of it. “They’ve created a crisis,” he said.

Give biennial budget a try One reason given by Gov. Pat Quinn for postponing his annual budget address until March 26 was that he wanted to put forth a five-year financial plan for the state. While that might merely have been an excuse to put off the speech until after the March 18 primary election, it is worth noting that other states have multiyear budgets. Three states that border IlFor the record linois – Indiana, Kentucky and Doing the same thing over Wisconsin – and over and expecting differare among the ent results is the definition of 19 states that insanity. produce two-year budgets, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Until 1970, Illinois did the same thing. Biennial budgeting requires longer-range planning and, as one would expect, provides greater financial certainty within state departments and agencies. Economic recessions and faulty estimates tend to throw monkey wrenches into such longterm spending plans, but they do the same with annual budgets. And, Illinois hasn’t had such good luck lately with its annual budgets, has it? The state has had a string of deficit budgets, even though the Illinois Constitution bans them. At last count, the state owed its vendors a whopping $7 billion, its credit rating was in the toilet, and the $100 billion unfunded pension crisis remained in limbo. For states that engage in biennial budgeting, the process actually covers about 30 months – six months to plan and write the budget, and 24 months while it is in effect. With all that work out of the way, the second year of the budget is when the Illinois General Assembly and the public could reap the benefits. Second-year legislative sessions could, and should, be shorter. Our neighbor, Indiana, has a 60-day legislative session the year the budget is written and approved, and a 30-day session the next year. What’s the old saying? No one is truly safe when the Legislature is in session. Well, under biennial budgeting, lawmakers would not have to be in session so often during the second year, which would likely do them (and us) some good. What’s that other old saying? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is the definition of insanity. Producing annual budgets year after year hasn’t solved Illinois’ financial problems, has it? It’s time to think differently. Illinois is in the midst of its fourth, and supposedly last, year of increased revenue from the temporary income tax increase imposed in January 2011. We don’t believe that taxpayers haven’t gotten enough in return. Multiyear budgeting might just be the ticket to impose stricter financial discipline on spending and steer the state out of its financial rut. Illinois ought to give it a try.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Be aware of scams To the Editor: Spring and severe weather season has arrived. A severe weather event typically brings out the best in our neighbors. Unfortunately, natural disasters also can bring out the worst. Residents that experience storm damage should beware of a small fraction of unscrupulous contractors who attempt to take advantage of victims. Illinois law protects consumers against those who would prey on them after natural disasters. Commonly known as The Storm Chaser Act, it provides protection to victims of storms. To protect against becoming a victim of an unscrupulous contractor, the Illinois Insurance Association recommends:

• Consult immediately with your insurance agent. • Work only with building contractors with whom you are familiar or who are recommended by your local Better Business Bureau or Chamber of Commerce. • If you believe you have been approached by someone engaging in a deceptive practice, contact your county’s state’s attorney’s office. If you have an elderly loved one who was victimized by the recent storms, take extra care to make sure they are not additionally victimized by an unscrupulous contractor. Kevin J.

Guard against ‘insensitive’ Sluggish economy. Anemic job growth. Weakened global stature. Health care reform nightmares. All of these reasons and more have Democrats verging on panic in this midterm election year. They don’t have a prayer of winning back the House in November and, worse, their sixseat majority in the Senate could evaporate. In contrast to down-in-the-mouth Democrats, Republicans are enthusiastic. They smell a big win right around the corner. They could be correct. CBS pollsters tell us that among Republicans, 81 percent say they will definitely vote in the fall. That percentage compares with only 68 percent of Democrats saying they will definitely vote. Those percentages are important, because a strong turnout of their base definitely would boost Republicans’ chances of maintaining control of the House and winning back the Senate, but don’t count out the Democrats. They still have a few cards to play, and, as we witnessed in 2012, Republicans are completely capable of shooting themselves in the foot, or handing Democrats the ammo they need to energize their base. Issues on which Republicans appear vulnerable include minimum wage, equal pay and immigration reform. The party has adopted a hard line on all three. It’s a strategy that GOP leaders believe will keep their base loyal, but it comes with some risk. Democrats are well-versed in exploiting GOP gaffes and trumping Republican insensitivity. Democrats are jumping at the opportunity to motivate women and minorities to support liberal candidates. Foolish, inflammatory speech hurts all Republicans and should be condemned by the party’s leadership. It’s time for the GOP to put on a friendlier face, or 2014 could look a lot like the disaster of 2010. Kearney (Neb.) Hub

Meet the new SAT, same as the old SAT, except that the difficult old “SAT words” are headed for the hills. Now you get to glean clues from context. This marks the first and last time that context will be something you have to consider when determining meaning, at least if you’re planning on doing any political commentary. From the looks of the sample test, the heart of the SAT – baffling, strangely worded passages that fill you with crippling selfdoubt and the sense that everything you knew is a lie – remains the same. That said, here is a test that approximates the feel of taking the SAT, especially if you thought you knew going in what words were supposed to mean:

On the Founding Fathers and the need for insulation My uncle says the country is going down the drain. But I think that America will continue to be great as long as we are insulated properly. Among the uses for insulation are: insulating, padding and not being asbestos. Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, John Adams and Ben Franklin were all Founding Fathers. Asbestos used to be used often as insulation. Alexander Hamilton died in a duel. It was all pretty vaporous. “Freedom from want, freedom from fear,” Franklin Delano Roosevelt said.

VIEWS Alexandra Petri Insulation did not kill Alexander Hamilton. What is the speaker of the above passage trying to prove? a) That the speaker of the above passage is a total moron who doesn’t understand how argumentation works. b) That his uncle is wrong. c) That America is great. d) Honestly, either (b) or (c) could be right but the passage is so awful it’s impossible to tell. How would you characterize the speaker’s uncle’s attitude toward what is going on in the country? a) Pessimistic b) Realistic c) Nihilistic d) Idiotic e) Chiaroscuro f) Diphthong What does “vaporous” mean in this passage? a) Literally it could mean anything; the passage offers no clues b) Intense c) Vapid d) Hazy

How to paint a door There are many ways to paint a door. Some of them are more effective than others. My father was a door aficionado. He could spend hours

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

every day staring at knobs, latches, locks and other door paraphernalia. “Ernie,” my mother would yell. “It is time to come to dinner!” “I cannot come to dinner yet, dear,” my father would answer. “I am intent on this door.” “What do you see in that door, Dad?” I asked. “You can see all kinds of things in a good door,” my father said. He narrated a story about his experience with doors as a young man, then quoted some Emerson at me. After that I understood his feelings much better. What is paraphernalia? a) Stuff you need in order to take drugs properly. b) Like regular phernalia but there’s no good explanation for them that uses just science. c) A couple ‘a phernalia! (We all know this answer’s wrong, but it’s a great pun.) d) [weird but technically correct definition that you’re still a little uncomfortable with] How would you characterize the narrator’s living situation? a) He lives with his parents. b) What? How is this the question? c) Intent d) Standard Who or what is Emerson? a) The passage offers no clues. b) Someone you quote about doors. c) Passable name for a cat.

d) A way of understanding feelings. How would you characterize the narrator’s feelings about his parents? a) I DON’T KNOW! b) What am I, the narrator’s therapist? c) He likes them but wonders why his father is always staring at knobs. d) Is that seriously the best option because, if so, we need to have words, test-maker. Are monocles back? a) Yes. b) No c) C d) D Is correlation the same thing as causation? a) Meh, probably b) No c) No, and that’s the only thing you need to say to prove someone else’s argument wrong, even if it looks like he might have established an actual link. d) Does one of them increase when the other one increases? If so, yes! Do you ever actually need to use algebra? a) No b) Nope c) “In real life, there is no such thing as algebra.” – Fran Lebowitz Good luck out there in the world!

POLICE LOOKING FOR EMBLEM THIEF LAKE IN THE HILLS – Police are looking for an individual who stole emblems off vehicles in a Lake in the Hills subdivision early Sunday morning. Lake in the Hills police started getting calls after 7 a.m. Sunday for reports of stolen car emblems in a subdivision west of the intersection of Randall and Miller roads, Lake in the Hills Police Sgt. Mark Smith said. A total of nine cars on several streets had emblems stolen, and another vehicle had its emblem damaged. A home in the subdivision had its lawn lights damaged early Sunday morning, which Smith said is likely related to the other incidents. A suspect has not yet been identified, and an investigation is ongoing, Smith said.

Operator search complicated Hebron president: Village denied twice because of ‘negative publicity’ By SHAWN SHINNEMAN sshinneman@shawmedia.com HEBRON – Trustees on Monday authorized Village President John Jacobson and a trustee to find an interim sewer operator, a task so far made difficult by recent publicity surrounding the village, Jacobson said. Jacobson and Trustee Jerry Bough will continue their search for an interim replacement for Satrina

Yates, who quit her job as wastewater treatment plant operator earlier this month. After the Village Board’s vote, the two now have the authority to hire an operator for a period of 60 days, not to exceed $1,000 in payment per month. Trustee Mark Mogan no-voted the measure, which was otherwise met with all aye votes from the board. After a busy meeting that also included talk of a village truck – a point of village

controversy – Jacobson said the village had been denied by two operators already because of “negative publicity for the town.” A Northwest Herald investigation into Jacobson’s first 10 months in office, which ran March 8, uncovered a village staff in transition. A clerk, public works director and his second-in-command, and two treasurers had left since Jacobson won election last

spring. Two trustees described a village in turmoil. Upon quitting, Yates spoke out about her time with the village, saying that the plant she was ultimately responsible for had slipped gradually from her control because of village leadership, and that work conditions were tense and unsafe. She also alleged she’d been forced out to make room for a staff member below her. After officials do find an

operator and as his or her 60 days come to an end, the board will have a say as to the village’s next step. If the interim operator is interested, he or she could be hired fulltime with board approval. “My feeling was we get someone for 60 days, then we come back … with all the board members to make a choice on that person,” Jacobson said.

Teachers’ union contract OK’d By JEFF ENGELHARDT

jengelhardt@shawmedia.com

CRYSTAL LAKE – The Crystal Lake School District 47 Board unanimously voted for a new contract with its teachers’ union Monday, but not without some reservations about retirement incentives. The new three-year contract begins retroactively to the start of the current school year and includes raises in each year starting with a 1.7 percent raise, a 2.3 percent increase in 201415 and a 2.4 percent raise in the final year. Teachers pick up more insurance costs with premium increases.

focus where it should be.” Jeff Mason District 47 board president The increases come after the teachers’ union locked into a previous contract that helped bring instruction expenses down from $47.1 million in 2011 to $44.6 million in 2013, according to Illinois Report Card and state board of education records. “I think the contract is

reasonable and it recognizes the value the teachers bring to the community,” board president Jeff Mason said. “I commend the teachers that during [negotiations] you kept your eyes in the classroom and your focus where it should be.” While everyone voted in favor of it, two board mem-

bers had issues with one perk in the contract. In hopes of saving local money, the contract included a retirement incentive that gives teachers a 6 percent raise in each of their final three years. The school district would replace those higher-paid teachers with lower salaried instructors, saving property tax dollars for residents but potentially shifting the burden to income tax costs at the state level. Pension calculations are based on the final four years of service. Board member Nancy Gonsiorek said the clause

Foundation bringing residents’ ideas to the table By JIM DALLKE jdallke@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – The Chicago Community Trust was founded almost 100 years ago over a dinner conversation. To celebrate its anniversary, the nonprofit is going back to its roots and plans to facilitate hundreds of mealtime gatherings focused on listening to the needs and concerns of the

community. On May 12, to celebrate its 99th anniversary, The Chicago Community Trust is launching its On the Table initiative, which will gather at least 10,000 Chicagoland citizens through hundreds of small-group discussions ranging in a variety of topics. The McHenry County Community Foundation is spearheading the initia-

cmcdougall@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – A Marengo man who authorities said pointed a gun at McHenry County Sheriff’s deputies and then was shot at by police, avoided jail time under an agreement with prosecutors. Felony charges against 50-year-old Edward P. Bolen were reduced Monday to misdemeanor resisting a peace officer, to which he pleaded guilty. The negotiated plea was accepted by McHenry County Judge Gordon Graham. Sheriff’s deputies on Sept. 29, 2012, were serving Bolen with an arrest warrant for domestic battery. The incident escalated, and police said Bolen eventually pointed a gun in their direction, authorities have said. Former deputy Zane Seipler, who later was fired from the Sheriff’s Office for unrelated reasons and most recently ran a failed campaign for a county board seat, fired shots at Bolen who then

JOHNSBURG: BEGINS FRIDAY

Johnsburg students perform ‘Lost in Yonkers’ NORTHWEST HERALD JOHNSBURG – Johnsburg High School will end its theater season with Neil Simon’s Tony award winning comedy “Lost in Yonkers.” Set in 1942 Yonkers, N.Y., the play tells the story of two teenage boys, Jay, played by junior Jacob Artner, and

Arty, played by sophomore Robert Burke, who are forced to live with their overly stern and vindictive Grandma Kurnitz, played by senior Chloe Hurckes, and their emotionally stunted Aunt Bella, played by sophomore Anastatia Brown, because their father, Eddie, played by senior Sean DeGroot, must travel selling

scrap iron in order to pay off a loan shark. Uncle Louie, played by freshman Hayden Hamsher, moves back into his mother’s apartment to hide out from some small-time gangsters and Aunt Bella has fallen in love with an usher from a local movie theater and arranges for the entire family

Health department offers communicable disease testing WOODSTOCK – In recognition of April’s National Public Health Week, the McHenry County Department of Health (MCDH) is offering free confidential or anonymous rapid HIV testing, by appointment, for individuals at high risk for infection. The test consists of a small finger-stick blood sample and results are available in less than 20 minutes so residents can quickly learn their HIV status. Individuals also are assessed for risk factors and provided educational material. For appointments, call MCDH at 815-334-4500. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are about 50,000 new HIV infections in the United States each year. Of those infected, 16 percent are unaware of their infection. As of June 2013, McHenry County has 124 people living with HIV, 69 of whom have advanced to AIDS, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health. It is important that individuals with HIV are aware of their status and linked to

As part of the plea agreement, Bolen was sentenced to a year of probation, ordered to continue with his psychiatric treatment and pay a fine of $500. Any weapons seized in connection with his arrest will be destroyed. Seipler was part of an officer-involved shooting in 2006, when he shot David K. Maxson of Wonder Lake twice with a beanbag gun. Although the pellet-filled bags typically are not lethal, Maxson died four days later. The state police investigation into that incident determined Seipler acted appropriately. Maxson’s estate recently filed a wrongful death lawsuit in McHenry County court after similar legal action was dismissed in federal court.

According to the CDC, an estimated 3.2 million persons in the United States have chronic Hepatitis C virus infection. Most people (75 percent) do not know they are infected because they don’t look or feel sick. About 75 to 85 percent of those infected will have chronic, or lifelong, infection without treatment. HCV is spread primarily through contact with infected blood. People born between 1945 and 1965 are five times more likely to be infected with HCV, so these individuals should be screened. In addition, MCDH offers affordable testing for sexually transmitted infections (STI) for those at risk for infection, by appointment only at 815334-4500.

• HEBRON Continued from page B1 The village’s water operator, Frank Michalczyk, a part-time employee who has been with the village for three years, also has expressed interest in the position. Michalczyk on Monday asked for village funding to attend a one-week session so that he could be eligible to test into becoming a Class 2 sewer operator. The board tabled a decision on whether to fund Michalczyk’s

truck, which had originally been part of a deal to pay a past consultant with the village, will now be sold on an auction website, which is free for municipalities. Trustees had previously raised questions as to whether the truck had been given to the consultant, Mike Miller, without board approval. “As far as the village, we don’t use it,” Trustee Mark Shepherd said Monday. “I just want to see best price at auction, whatever we can get.”

Groups between 8 and 10 recommended crease that number this year, Doeden said. “Every year we try to set up a priority group we will serve,” she said. “Last year it was veteran services.

We can’t afford this process.” Like Gonsiorek, board member Ryan Farrell had a tough time approving the contract with the retirement clause, but believed it was a fair contract overall.

OBITUARIES SHARON L. BLASINSKI Born: Sept. 5, 1946; in Chicago Died: April 17, 2014 On Thursday, April 17, 2014, Heaven received another angel. Sharon was born September 5, 1946 in Chicago, the daughter of Leslie and Grace (Bailey) Reid. On August 13, 1966 in Chicago, she married Robert Blasinski. In her 67 years Sharon left a mark on her family and friends that is indescribable. If you asked her opinion she gave it honestly, that was the only way she knew how. She consoled the sad, laughed with the happy and lightened the mood wherever she was. Her love of life was contagious and she was never at a loss for a witty comeback followed by her sarcastic smile. Sharon made friends wherever she went, whether it was at work, the store or on one of the many weekend trips she enjoyed taking with her husband Bob. Many people say they loved her and it was easy to do. She invited you in and never let you go. Her love was equal and unending. In 1990 she took on a role she cherished most, that of Nana. Her 7 grandchildren and 1 greatgranddaughter filled her with pride and a new zest for life. Nana's famous New Years Eve parties and special holiday get-togethers made memories that everyone will cherish for a lifetime. Sharon is survived by her husband of 47 years, Robert; children, Robert Jr., (Michele) Blasinski, Tina A. (Rusty) Bottcher, Christopher Blasinski; grandchildren, Amanda, Hannah, Emma, and Owen Blasinski, Laura and Austin Bottcher, Skylar Blasinski; and great-granddaughter Brooklyn Bottcher.

McHENRY: GARY LANG SUBARU GIVES $15,000 A YEAR

Dog park sponsorship means membership rates will fall

Groups that carpool to the event will be entered into a raffle for a free picnic shelter reservation.

Crystal Lake police to host drug disposal event

McHENRY – Dog park membership fees will be slashed next season with advertising dollars keeping the park self-sustaining. McBark Park, which opened last August, will be sponsored by Gary Lang Subaru to the tune of $15,000 a year for the next three years, and seven other businesses have bought advertising banners in the park. The McHenry City Council approved the agreement with Gary Lang Auto Group unan-

CRYSTAL LAKE – The Crystal Lake Police Department will host a prescription drug disposal event Saturday at its headquarters. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., residents can bring any potentially dangerous, unwanted, unused and expired prescription drugs to the Crystal Lake Police Department on 100 W. Woodstock St. where they will be safely disposed. No liquid drugs or needles will be accepted. The event, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Agency, allows residents to dispose of the drugs at a drive-thru in an anonymous fashion. Last April, Americans turned in 742,000 pounds of pills at more than 5,800 sites throughout the country. The disposal initiative was started to curb drug abuse and prevent family members and friends who may struggle with drug addiction from stealing unused drugs. It also helps prevent unsafe disposal methods such as flushing pills down the toilet or throwing them in the garbage. For information, contact Crystal Lake police at 815-356-3793.

imously Monday evening, and a grand opening event Saturday will mark the start of the sponsorship. That means the annual membership rate will drop to $15 for residents and $25 for nonresidents starting Sept. 1, down from $75 for residents and $125 for nonresidents this past year, Deputy City Administrator Bill Hobson said. The membership costs had been criticized by some for being significantly higher than surrounding areas, but the new rate would be lower than other area dog parks. The price was set with

the expectation that if 200 residents signed up, it would cover the $15,000 the city estimates in maintenance costs, Hobson said. Gary Lang Subaru’s sponsorship will cover those maintenance costs, and the other revenue streams will go toward off-setting administrative and entry card costs, as well as other improvements, including possibly an additional shade structure and extension of the waterline into the park. In sponsoring the dog park, Gary Lang Subaru will get three signs at the park and

about five events throughout the year during which the McHenry dealership could put a vehicle in the park. The dealership also could offer free park membership as an incentive for purchasing a vehicle. The sponsorship is similar to the way the city covered the costs of improvements, including the scoreboard, at Petersen Park, Alderman Jeff Schaefer said. “[The Parks and Recreation Committee] went over a list of pros and cons, and I’m not sure if we came up with a con,” Alderman Geoffrey Blake said.

LAKEMOOR: INJURIES WERE NOT LIFE-THREATENING

The officer was taken to Centegra Hospital – McHenry with injuries that weren’t life-threatening. None of the other drivers or passengers were injured. The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the crash, Majercik said.

Disruptive technology

Hickey Financial Group to host MLB pitching coach

Court to hear dispute over Internet TV broadcasts By MARK SHERMAN The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Thirty years after failing to convince the Supreme Court of the threat posed by home video recordings, big media companies are back and now trying to rein in another technological innovation they say threatens their financial well-being. The battle has moved out of viewers’ living rooms, where Americans once marveled at their ability to pop a cassette into a recorder and capture their favorite programs or the sporting event they wouldn’t be home to see. Now, the entertainment conglomerates that own U.S. television networks are waging a legal fight, culminating in Tuesday’s Supreme Court argument against a startup business that uses Internet-based technology to give subscribers the ability to watch programs anywhere they can take portable devices. The source of the companies’ worry is Aereo Inc., which takes free television signals from the airwaves and sends them over the Internet to paying subscribers in 11 cities. Aereo, backed by billionaire Barry Diller, has plans to more than double that total. Broadcasters including ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and PBS have sued Aereo for copyright infringement, saying Aereo should pay for redistributing the programming the same way cable and satellite systems do. The U.S. networks increasingly are reliant on these retransmission fees, estimated at $3.3 billion last year and going up to more than $7 billion by 2018, according to research by SNL Kagan, which analyzes media and communications trends. They fear they will lose some of that money if the Supreme Court rules for Aereo. Aereo’s service starts at $8 a month and is available in New York, Boston, Houston and Atlanta, among others. Subscribers get about two

dozen local over-the-air stations, plus the Bloomberg TV financial channel. In the New York market, Aereo has a data center in Brooklyn with thousands of dime-size antennas. When a subscriber wants to watch a show live or record it, the company temporarily assigns him an antenna and transmits the program over the Internet to the subscriber’s laptop, tablet, smartphone or other device. The antenna is only used by one subscriber at a time, and Aereo says that’s much like the situation at home, where a viewer uses a personal antenna to watch over-the-air broadcasts for free. “Aereo is in some ways novel, but it is also among a host of technologies that uses the Internet to offer consumers the ability to do what they always have more cheaply and conveniently,” the Dish Network and Echostar Technologies said in a supporting legal brief filed in the Supreme Court. But the broadcasters and their backers argue that Aereo’s competitive advantage lies not in its product, but in avoiding paying for it. “Aereo is simply a blatant free rider trying to make a quick buck without paying anything toward the true costs of what it misappropriates,” Time Warner Inc. said in a court filing. The broadcasters told the court that Aereo’s “competitors pay for the rights to retransmit ‘live TV’ to the public – as they must to avoid liability for copyright infringement – while Aereo does not.” The federal appeals court in New York ruled that Aereo did not violate the copyrights of broadcasters with its service, but a similar service has been blocked by judges in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said its ruling stemmed from a 2008 decision in which it held that Cablevision Systems Corp. could offer a remote digital video recording service without paying additional licensing fees to broadcasters because

each playback transmission was made to a single subscriber using a single unique copy produced by that subscriber. The Supreme Court declined to hear the appeal from movie studios, TV networks and cable TV channels. In the Aereo case, a dissenting judge said his court’s decision would eviscerate copyright law. Judge Denny Chin called Aereo’s setup a sham and said the individual antennas are a “Rube Goldberg-like contrivance” – an overly complicated device that accomplishes a simple task in a confusing way – that exists for the sole purpose of evading copyright law. The Obama administration, artists, actors, Major League Baseball and the National Football League all support the broadcasters. But the administration and computer software and telecommunications groups are urging the court to avoid a broad ruling in favor of copyright protection that could call into question the rapidly evolving world of cloud computing, which gives users access to a vast online computer network that stores and processes information. Smaller cable companies, independent broadcasters and consumer groups are backing Aereo. FM radio and cable TV were initially derided as unnecessary, inefficient or just bizarre, said the digital civil liberties watchdog Electronic Frontier Foundation. In a legal filing joined by other public interest groups and the consumer electronics trade association, the group said the justices should not become regulators of technology and “the court should not attempt to predict the future of television.” The entertainment industry has changed dramatically since the high court ruled in favor of home video recording in 1984 in a 5-4 decision. Then, Sony was the maker of the Betamax recorder and Universal City Studios and Walt Disney Productions were arguing for protection under copyright law.

Gauge of U.S. economy up for 3rd straight month WASHINGTON – A measure of the U.S. economy’s health rose in March for the third consecutive month, a sign of stronger growth after harsh winter weather caused the economy’s pace to slow. The Conference Board said Monday that its index of leading indicators increased 0.8 percent in March after a 0.5 percent rise in February and modest 0.2 percent gain in January. It was the best showing since a 0.9 percent gain in November. Both hiring and consumer outlooks have improved, which along with interest rates fueled much of the index’s improvement. That offset a negative contribution from building permits. The index looks at a series of different indicators to spot peaks and troughs in economic growth.

Barry Diller at the annual Allen & Co. Media summit in Sun Valley, Idaho, in 2010. Thirty years after failing to persuade the Supreme Court of the threat posed by home video recordings, big media companies are back at the high court to try to rein in another technological innovation they say threatens their financial well-being.

McHENRY – One hundred and eighty stores in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin are participating in the first Vintage Shop Hop on Friday and Saturday. Although the event focuses on vintage, resale and antiques, other stores and restaurants have chosen to be included and will be offering sales, refreshments, drawings or other special events. Six stores in McHenry including Antique Market and Woodshop, Prized Possessions Antiques, Fayzee, The Trendier Resaler (all on Elm Street), White River Junction, and A Peek Into the Past Vintage (both on Green Street) will be involved. Towns surrounding McHenry also are taking part, according to a news release. The event is being promoted on individual stores’ Facebook pages.

For this business, networking trumps social media How does Kurt Rice do it? How does Rice, owner of a Better Water Treatment Co., run a successful referral-based business in the competitive water softener industry? He doesn’t advertise and yet he gains new clients repeatedly. Enviably, Rice routinely receives orders at mixers, ribbon-cutting ceremonies and even at the chamber’s annual galas. Amazing. How? Is his product the cheapest? Does he have the best water softener marketing campaign in McHenry County? Does he have a can’t-be-missed storefront display with neon lights? Does he spend the recommended six hours a week on social media? Is his website the best in his industry? Rice will admit that none of the above is true. However, Rice does one thing and he does it well: He networks. Rice rarely misses a ribbon-cutting ceremony and he seldom is absent from a mixer. He is at every Scramble. Why? Because Rice knows the effectiveness of networking and now in 2014 he has a totally

CHAMBER NEWS Kay Rial Bates referral-based business. Yet, Rice’s business life wasn’t always easy. He started his water treatment business in 2006. Home building was taking place and the future looked good. Rice got referrals from real estate agents who were actively engaged in selling homes. Then the unthinkable happened. The housing bubble burst in 2007 and proceeded rapidly toward a recession at the end of 2008. Here was Rice with his brand-new business as the sole supporter of his small family. While others in his industry stepped up the marketing, Rice stepped up his networking. He kept his overhead low, not expanding to a building, keeping his staff small, buying softeners on an as-needed basis, and taking good care of his used vehicles and customers.

Exercising good judgment and putting his time and effort where it counts, Rice’s efforts have worked for him. He has become top of mind in his industry through networking. Not the largest, not the best marketed, no Facebook, not the cheapest, just the best networked and people have gotten to know him, trust him and refer him. We all can be like Rice. It does take time, it does take effort, but networking is the most cost-effective, credibility-building marketing that can be performed by any organization. It is a necessity for those in business today and chambers are the best places to not only gain networking skills, but to develop business through networking activities. There are some great opportunities to follow in Rice’s shoes this month. The McHenry Scramble is April 25.

LOHAN SAID ON TV SHOW SHE HAD MISCARRIAGE

THINGS

LOS ANGELES – Lindsay Lohan said she suffered a miscarriage during the taping of her reality TV series. The 27-year-old actress made the disclosure during Sunday’s final episode of “Lindsay,” the OWN cable channel series. Lohan said the miscarriage was the reason that she was unable to appear on the program at one point. She said she was sick and unable to move. She didn’t offer any further details on the program about her ill-fated pregnancy. Lohan began taping the OWN reality show shortly after leaving her sixth stint in rehab last summer.

NYC mayor: May 16 to be Barbara Walters Day NEW YORK – New York city Mayor Bill de Blasio is proclaiming May 16 as “Barbara Walters Day” in New York City. Barbara Walters is retiring that day after a storied TV reporting career that has spanned five decades. De Blasio made the announcement Monday when he appeared on “The View,” the daytime talk show that Walters co-hosts. He gave her an official city proclamation. Walters and de Blasio’s predecessor, Michael Bloomberg, had a frequently flirtatious on-air relationship. De Blasio and his wife, Chirlane McCray, both appeared on ABC’s long-running talk show. The show’s hosts mostly wanted to ask about the couple’s relationship and family, and the conversation largely avoided politics.

‘Housewives’ star said she may not return to show ATLANTA – Kenya Moore said she’s seriously considering leaving “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” after her televised brawl with co-star Porsha Williams. “We all agree that we don’t condone violence,” Moore said in an interview Monday. “We’ve become angry with each other, we’ve threatened each other and gone to the edge. But at the end of the day, we know there’s a line. If there are no consequences, then where does it end?” Williams surrendered last week to authorities and was charged with a misdemeanor charge of battery for the fight, which was televised as part of the Bravo show’s reunion special Sunday. Williams and Moore have had friction during the entire season, so it wasn’t surprising that the two began to argue and trade ugly accusations during the reunion special. But then things got physical. Both women stood up and Williams grabbed Moore’s hair, pulling her down and dragging her across the floor. On the show, Williams said she “blacked out” but was regretful about the fight. Moore said Williams should have been better prepared for the reunion show, which typically brings up past feuds and confrontations between cast members from previous episodes. Moore, an actress and former Miss USA, said the decision is up to the producers on whether Williams returns to the show. Bravo has not commented on the incident and has not addressed who will be back for the next season. Williams’ attorney, Joe Habachy, said in an emailed statement last week that the battery claim against his client is unfounded and that Williams looks forward to clearing her name. Habachy said Williams plans to contest the charge and file aggravated assault charges against Moore. A rep for Williams did not return a request for comment on Monday. Moore said she still hasn’t spoken with Williams since the incident.

Brown’s trial on assault charge delayed WASHINGTON – Singer Chris Brown’s trial on an assault charge in Washington, which had been set for Monday, has been postponed until Wednesday. A judge delayed it while attorneys work out issues over testimony from Brown’s bodyguard, who was convicted of assault in a separate trial. Both Brown and bodyguard Christopher Hollosy were arrested in October after a man accused them of punching him outside a Washington hotel. Hollosy told police that he punched the man after he tried to get on Brown’s tour bus. But the man said Brown and later Hollosy punched him after he tried to get in a photo Brown was taking with two women. Judge Patricia Wynn set Hollosy’s sentencing for June 25. Brown’s attorneys now wants Hollosy to testify at the singer’s trial. Hollosy would be expected to say that he, not Brown, punched 20-year-old Parker Adams outside the W Hotel. But Hollosy’s lawyer Bernard Grimm told a judge he plans to appeal his client’s conviction.

BASEBALL: BURLINGTON CENTRAL 9 HARVARD 0

PRAIRIE RIDGE 9, JOHNSBURG 6

Wolves rally late

Dé jà vu: Hornets go hitless Rockets’ Schutta hurls perfect game By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com BURLINGTON – Harvard’s batters understand that being more aggressive and attacking strikes earlier in counts could be beneficial. Actually executing that approach has proved difficult for the slumping Hornets, who now haven’t had a hit in 15 innings. Harvard followed up being no-hit by Richmond-Burton pitcher Mike Kaska on Thursday by becoming a perfect game victim to Burlington Central’s Jake Schutta on Monday in a 9-0 Big Northern Conference East Division loss. The closest Harvard (4-5 overall, 2-3 BNC East) came to ending the hitless streak was Justin Nolen’s bouncing ground ball in the second inning. Rockets third baseman Cody Schuver grabbed it and beat Nolen in a bang-bang play at first base. Harvard struck out 13 times and could not get a ball out of the infield against Schutta (20). “We just had some bad at-bats and we’re seeing too many good pitches at the plate, bad approaches in the batter’s box,” Nolen said. “We’re going away from what we’re good at, starting to get out of our good habits and creating some bad ones.” On Wednesday, the Hornets had seven hits and beat Johnsburg, 4-2, in a nonconference game. The fifth inning of that game was when Harvard last got a hit.

Prairie Ridge shortstop Daniel Pecoraro (right) takes a pickoff throw at second base as Johnsburg’s Dan Tylkowski dives back safely in the fourth inning Monday in Johnsburg. Prairie Ridge won, 9-6.

Prairie Ridge overcomes mistakes at Johnsburg By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com JOHNSBURG – The execution, at least in most cases, wasn’t up to the standard Prairie Ridge has come to expect. At one point, Wolves baseball coach Glen Pecoraro characterized his team’s play as terrible. But the end result was one they can live with. Prairie Ridge shook off five defensive blunders, got a major lift from its bullpen and turned a pair of late Johnsburg errors off perfectly dropped bunts into critical runs in a 9-6 Fox Valley Conference crossover victory Monday at Tigers Park. The Wolves (7-9 overall, 3-2 FVC Valley Division) pro-

duced four runs in their final two at-bats to pull out the win, scoring what proved to be the game-winning run in the sixth inning when Marcus Sargeant was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. “It’s winning ugly – winning ugly,” Pecoraro said. “We’ve had a lot of close ballgames – late innings – when we had chances to win that we didn’t win. Today, we came back, we answered back.” Prairie Ridge’s rally came after Johnsburg (5-9, 2-4 FVC Fox) took a 6-5 lead after batting around and scoring five runs. Nick Brengman capped the rally with a two-run single. Kyle Grillot – kgrillot@shawmedia.com

BULLS

Defense, not D.J., disappoints Thibs By JOE COWLEY jcowley@suntimes.com

AP photo

Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich (left) fouls Wizards guard John Wall on Sunday in Game 1 of a first-round playoff series at the United Center.

Tom Thibodeau is not in the business of pointing fingers. In his world, it’s a “five-man offense, five-man defense, and everyone is connected.” He reiterated that again Monday, one day after the Bulls lost Game 1 of their first-round playoff series against the Washington Wizards. “To put it on one guy, that’s not how we do it here,” Thibodeau said. All well and good, but that didn’t slow down the Wizards from finding that perceived weak link in the chain, especially in their fourth-quarter come back, and attacking it. And unfortunately for D.J. Augustin, he was the guy Washington went after in crunchtime.

Bulls vs. Wizards FIRST ROUND Game 1: Wizards 102, Bulls 93 Game 2: @ Bulls, 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, TNT Game 3: @ Washington, 7 p.m. Friday, CSN, ESPN Game 4*: @ Washington, noon Sunday, ABC Game 5*: @ Bulls, TBD April 29 Game 6*: @ Washington, TBD May 1 Game 7*: @ Bulls, TBD May 3, TNT * if necessary “Not only D.J., our defense,” Thibodeau said, when asked specifically if he felt like Augustin needed to improve on the defensive end. “I could go from start to finish. There’s an endless list of things that we didn’t do cor-

rectly. We’re capable of doing much better. And we’re going to have to. They’re a good team. In the playoffs, you have to play for 48 minutes and be disciplined. You have to stick to it. Some plays, they made tough plays. Give them credit. Others, we made mistakes. And we have to correct those mistakes.” Nice coach speak, but according to one source, Thibodeau was concerned about Augustin’s defensive shortcomings being exposed, especially in the playoffs, where opposing coaches smell blood and attack. Sure enough, the Wizards guards seemed to go right after him down the stretch, whether it was John Wall, Bradley Beal or even 38-year-old Andre Miller, who scored eight of his 10 points in that fourth quarter.

Thibodeau was asked if the defensive breakdowns were more positioning or communication, and basically said all of the above. “It was a compilation of all those things,” Thibodeau said. “To me, if one guy is not doing their job, it’s going to make everyone look bad. We have to be tied together. We have to have the proper amount of intensity and concentration. And we have to finish our defense. That’s one thing that we could do a lot better.” Strange that on the same day Joakim Noah was named the NBA Defensive Player of the Year all the focus was on how porous the Bulls’ defense was, but that was more than slightly addressed during the Monday practice at the Berto Center.

Keyshawn Johnson arrested after domestic dispute

Bell leads Huntley track victory

CALABASAS, Calif. – The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said former NFL and Southern California receiver Keyshawn Johnson was arrested after a report of a domestic dispute. A Sheriff’s Department statement said deputies responded to a residence in Calabasas at 12:48 a.m. Monday and determined the resident and his ex-girlfriend were involved in a domestic dispute, and the resident was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery. The department subsequently identified the resident as Johnson, who posted bond at 9:15 a.m. and was released. In the NFL, Johnson played for the New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers. He’s currently an ESPN commentator and analyst. ESPN said it was aware of the arrest and was looking into the matter. A call to Johnson’s agent was not immediately returned.

Seahawks acquire QB Pryor from Raiders ALAMEDA, Calif. – The Oakland Raiders traded quarterback Terrelle Pryor to the Seattle Seahawks. Oakland sent the third-year player to the Super Bowl champions Monday. Terms of the deal were not immediately announced. Pryor was a third-round pick in the 2011 supplemental draft out of Ohio State. He started nine games last season, going 3-6, sharing the job with undrafted rookie free agent Matt McGloin. Pryor went 156 for 272 for 1,798 yards, seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions, with a passer rating of 69.1.

Ugandan coach accused of sexual harassment KAMPALA, Uganda – Uganda’s athletics body suspended a coach who is accused of sexually harassing female runners, an official said Monday, after Ugandan police started investigating the man whose alleged misconduct has sparked calls for his arrest and prosecution. The suspended coach, Peter Wemali, faces “a range of allegations” related to suspected sexual harassment of female runners who recently trained under him in eastern Uganda, said Beatrice Ayikoru of the Uganda Athletics Federation. Wemali hasn’t issued any comment on the charges. Ayikoru said the decision to suspend Wemali was taken after some athletes complained in an unsigned letter that prompted a criminal investigation. No female runner has come forward to complain about Wemali, she said, apparently because they are afraid of retaliation. Wemali’s alleged wrongdoing was first reported by the Ugandan Olympic runner Moses Kipsiro, who told a local newspaper last month that the coach urged female runners to have sex or give birth to improve their performance. Kipsiro, who said some female runners had confided in him, told Uganda’s Daily Monitor newspaper that Wemali urged the runners to have sex regularly because then “their legs move easily.” One unnamed runner told the newspaper that Wemali “threatened to chase us from (training) camp if we ever said anything or turned down his sexual advances.”

Tarkanian returns home after heart attack LAS VEGAS – Former UNLV basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian is back home after spending 10 days in a Las Vegas hospital after a heart attack.

The elder Tarkanian was hospitalized April 9 after attending the Final Four in North Texas, and complaining of weakness, lethargy and labored breathing. Doctors determined he had a heart attack. – Wire reports

For the Skyhawks, who also committed five errors – watching the lead disappear wasn’t easy to swallow. “There’s nothing hiding the fact that was an extremely difficult loss and extremely hard to get over,” Johnsburg coach Sam Lesniak said. “As a team, we’re right there, we’re competing with the tough schools, but we have to be able to figure out how to finish a game. That’s been a tough spot for us so far.” The Skyhawks had the chance to answer Prairie Ridge’s two sixth-inning runs but failed to do so. Johnsburg loaded the bases – all on walks – but couldn’t push any runs across as reliever Jim McKinney got Nic DeSalvo to

ground out to end the threat. Johnsburg also left the bases loaded in the second inning while trailing by just a run. “If you’re going to win a close game, you have to figure out how to manufacture a run,” Lesniak said. Prairie Ridge responded in the seventh inning with a pair of runs that put the game out of reach, again using a bunt-induced throwing error to take an 8-6 lead before Jackson Lasswell came through with an RBI groundout. Artistic it wasn’t. But with the Wolves knowing they didn’t play their best baseball and still managed to win, a sometimes sloppy effort came with a silver lining. “It feels great – we’re starting to play better baseball, we’re getting better offensively and I feel like we’re growing each game,” said Myers, who went 3 for 4 in the win and scored three runs. “I feel we’re getting there and I think we’ll be there pretty soon.”

8INSIDE BASEBALL Athlete of the Week KEVIN KORDIK Johnsburg, sr. The third baseman-pitcher had a huge hand in two victories as the Skyhawks were 2-2 for the week. In Tuesday’s 8-1 victory over CaryGrove, Kordik was 2 for 4 with a grand slam and five RBIs. The grand slam came late to seal the outcome for the Skyhawks. On Saturday, Kordik made one of his best starts of the season in a 7-1 win against Antioch. Kordik struck out 10, allowed one hit and issued no walks during that game. Kordik also was 3 for 4 with an RBI in Wednesday’s 4-2 loss to Harvard and was 1 for 2 in Thursday’s 8-1 loss to Huntley.

Noteworthy Ideal for closing: Harvard coach Donnie Nolen felt the past two seasons that Matt Piechocki had been his No. 1 pitcher, but this year he is using Piechocki in a different role: as closer. Nolen feels his starting pitching is strong with junior Peyton Schneider and sophomores Johnny Peterson, Reiss Bielski and Logan Streit. That allows Piechocki to man right field until late in a game when he often closes. “His bat is pretty good, so I keep him in the lineup,” Nolen said. “He can throw every day, and he enjoys it. I said, ‘OK, I’ll put that to use.’ ” Nolen said the main thing with Piechocki is he will come in throwing strikes. “I had him in Little League when he moved here at 11, and he would always throw strikes,” Nolen said. “He seems perfect for closer. It really helps the ballclub a lot.” Piechocki has a 1.40 ERA and a 0-1 record with one save. Hampshire to honor teachers: Hampshire’s home game May 7 will hold a special importance as each player will ask a teacher to wear his jersey and the teachers will be recognized before the game. It is a program Whip-Purs coach John Sarna started as an assistant at Jacobs and brought to Hampshire. The Whips will do it as part of Teacher Appreciation Week, which is observed around the nation from May 5 to 9. “Few other professionals touch as many people as teachers do,” Sarna said. “The Teacher Appreciation Game is a good time to learn about the contributions educators make to our community every day. We recognize we are role models. That brings satisfaction. It also brings responsibility. We strive to take it to the next step.” The event will be sponsored by Buffalo Wild Wings and Hoosier Bat Company, which will have a personalized, laser-engraved wood bat for every teacher.

and hitting my spots,” Schutta said. “Once I got ahead in the count I threw off-speed pitches to get them swinging. I was aware [of the perfect game]. It was lingering in my head, I knew I had to focus on the mitt and execute the pitches.” Schutta threw 83 pitches, 56 of which were strikes. “I was calling pitches and felt like I was playing a video game,” Nelson said. “You call a pitch and it goes right where you want it to. He gets like that

sometimes where he doesn’t miss spots. He kept the ball low and threw three pitches and spotted them all.” Harvard was frustrated at knowing what it should do, but not being able to do it. “We’re not making good contact,” Hornets left fielder Logan Streit said. “We have to take more reps and get better focus. We’ll hit the cages a lot.” Harvard has two days off before hosting Burlington in a BNC East rematch. Donnie No-

len thought the Hornets would spend a lot of time in the cages, particularly if wet weather dictates they stay indoors. “We really didn’t change anything [from Thursday],” Justin Nolen said. “We had a couple days off, we should have been working on it. We got back to game time and went back to those bad habits. It’s something we’re going to have to work on in the next couple days, being aggressive and changing your whole outlook.”

COACHING CHANGES

Woodson, Corbin canned; Adelman decides to retire The ASSOCIATED PRESS Mike Woodson and Tyrone Corbin lost their jobs, and Rick Adelman decided it was time to walk away from his. Woodson and Corbin were fired Monday and Adelman retired, creating coaching openings for three NBA teams. Woodson was expected to be replaced after Phil Jackson was hired last month as New York Knicks president during a disappointing season for a team that expected to make the playoffs. He informed Woodson and the entire coaching staff they were being dismissed Monday morning. “The coaches and players on this team had an extremely difficult 2013-14 season, and blame should not be put on one individual. But the time has come for change throughout the franchise as we start the journey to assess and build this team for next season and beyond,” Jackson said in a statement. Woodson went 109-79 with

the Knicks, a .580 winning percentage that ranks behind only Pat Riley and Jeff Van Gundy in franchise history. But after winning 54 games and the Atlantic Division title last season, the Knicks were just 37-45. Tyrone The Jazz Corbin had no such expectations for this season after the departures of Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, but declined to offer Corbin a new contract after they went 25-57. Corbin, a former Jazz player and assistant who replaced Jerry Sloan on Feb. 10, 2011, went 112-146. “This has not been an easy decision, but after a thorough review process, we as an organization feel that this is the best decision for our franchise moving forward,” general manager Dennis Lindsay said. Adelman won more than 1,000 games in 23 seasons,

but the Minnesota Timberwolves were a disappointing 40-42 this season. He wanted to spend more time with wife Mary Kay, who has been treated for seizures over the past two years, and also thinks the Wolves need a fresh voice to help them try to persuade star power forward Kevin Love to remain in Minnesota. “If anything, I felt if I coached another year and then his future comes up and my future is gone, that makes it even harder,” Adelman said. “I think it’s best for the organization to have somebody else coaching the team, give them a year to see what they can do and hear that voice. I think that’s a much more positive situation for the organization. I feel strongly about that.” The Detroit Pistons are still looking for a full-time coach after firing Maurice Cheeks during the season, and the Los Angeles Lakers could decide to replace Mike D’Antoni after going 27-55 during an injury-plagued season.

WESTERN CONFERENCE QUARTERFINALS: GRIZZLIES 111, THUNDER 105 (OT)

Randolph helps Grizzlies tie series The ASSOCIATED PRESS OKLAHOMA CITY – Zach Randolph scored 25 points to help the Memphis Grizzlies defeat the Oklahoma City Thunder, 111-105, in overtime on Monday night and tie their first-round playoff series at one game apiece. Mike Conley added 19 points and 12 assists for the Grizzlies. Kevin Durant had 36 points and 11 rebounds for the Thunder. Russell Westbrook scored 29 points for Oklahoma City, but he made just 11 of 28 shots.

Game 3 is Thursday night in Memphis. The Thunder trailed by nine early in the fourth quarter, but they finally took the lead when Thabo Sefolosha stole the ball from Randolph, leading to a dunk by Durant with 1:14 remaining. Mike Miller came back with a 3-pointer to put Memphis up 95-93. Westbrook missed a 3-pointer and Memphis rebounded. Conley missed the first free throw and made the second to make it a three-point game. Tony Allen stole the ball

from Durant, and Conley made two free throws with 18.1 seconds left to push the lead to five. Durant answered with a miraculous four-point play with 13.8 seconds remaining. He hit a 3-pointer from the corner as he was being pushed out of bounds by Marc Gasol. Conley made one of two free throws with 12 seconds left to make it 99-97. Westbrook missed a wild 3-pointer, but Kendrick Perkins, who hadn’t made a field goal all game, scored as time expired to force overtime.

Bulls center Joakim Noah was named the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year on Monday.

BULLS

Noah named NBA’s top defensive player “All the work ethic, it all comes from you.”

By JOE COWLEY jcowley@suntimes.com Joakim Noah walks to the beat of his own drum, so of course he accepted the 2013-14 NBA Defensive Player of the Year award the same way Monday. The Bulls’ All-Star center took time to make fun of the statue and the “weird-looking defensive stance” it was in, asked if he actually got to keep the car that comes along with the award, dedicated the award to his mentor, Tyrone Green, who died this past week, and was his usual humble self the entire time, calling it a team award, first and foremost. “All the work ethic, it all comes from you,” Noah said to his father, Yannick, who was in attendance at the ceremony. “Mom, I don’t even know what to say. Just every day, all the hard times I put you through, single mom in New York City, it’s not easy.

Joakim Noah Bulls center, speaking to his father, Yannick Noah “This award is a team award. This wouldn’t be possible without my boy Kirk Hinrich, an old man, picking up [the opposition] full-court. My whole team. Of course [Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau], we’ve definitely had our hard times, our ups and downs, but without your system this wouldn’t be possible.” Not only was it possible for Noah, but it wasn’t even close, as he earned 100 of the 125 firstplace votes, which was 92 more than the eight first-place votes that both Roy Hibbert [second] and DeAndre Jordan [third] received. “I’m always surprised with everything that happens to

him,” Noah’s father, Yannick, said of the honor. “I don’t get used to it. Every time he gets introduced at the United Center, I just can’t believe it.” Noah became just the second Bulls player to earn the honor, with Michael Jordan winning Defensive Player of the Year back in the 1987-88 season. The big man’s resume was hard to dispute, as he helped the Bulls hold opponents to a league-low 91.8 points per game this season, while ranking second in the league in opponent field goal percentage (.430). “I don’t do this for awards, I do this to win games,’’ Noah said. “I remember one day we were working out at the Berto Center and Thibs was putting me through a real hard workout, and I told him, ‘You know Thibs, if we weren’t winning games, I would really, really hate you.’ And he said, ‘Trust me Jo, I feel the same way about you.’ ”

Dunleavy: Effort wasn’t sufficient • BULLS Continued from page C1 “Obviously, for us to give up 102 points in a playoff game, for us is unacceptable,” veteran forward Mike Dunleavy said. “But you give [Washington] credit, they played pretty well, and they’re going to play better on Tuesday, so our defense is going to have to be a whole lot better. “I can’t get into too many specifics, but I just think our overall intensity needs to be better. Our alertness, our awareness. We’ll tinker with a few things here and there, but most of it is kind of an effort thing.” It better be that “effort thing,” because while there will be tinkering, it didn’t sound like Thibodeau is about to change his rotation. That means Augustin, and the rest of that group that Thibodeau likes to close games with, will once again be front-and-center in the crosshairs, not only having to deal with Washington’s backcourt, but find a way to slow down Nene, and the 24 points he burned them with. “This is the NBA,” Dunleavy said. “You take one or two things away, other guys are going to

The White Sox will place starter Chris Sale on the 15-day disabled list because of a left arm injury.

WHITE SOX

Sale headed to 15-day DL Sox feared injury was worse By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN dvanschouwen@suntimes.com DETROIT – When Chris Sale spends extended time in the trainer’s room, the White Sox hold their collective breath. The news they got Monday night about their Cy Young candidate wasn’t good, but it could have been worse. The Sox, who had said before the game that he would miss his next start, decided to place Sale on the 15-day disabled list with a flexor mass muscle in his left arm after Sale underwent an MRI during Monday’s 3-1 win over the Detroit Tigers. The MRI showed that the ligament is “excellent,” general manager Rick Hahn said. “We figured we are much better off having him miss a start here in Detroit and the next one in Tampa Bay and then re-evalute.” Hahn said he was fairly confident Sale wouldn’t be out for more than the 15 days. The issue is similar to the one that bumped him out of the rotation in May 2012. Sale had already left Comerica Park by the end of the game and was not expected to be available until Tuesday. A f t e r t h r o w i n g a c areer-high 127 pitches in his last start Thursday, Sale skipped his normal side session between starts but has played catch and done some work in the weight room. He missed a start in May 2013 because of a mild case of tendinitis in his left posterior shoulder, and in May 2012 he was unexpectedly moved from the starting rotation to the bullpen after he experienced soreness and tightness in his left elbow. He returned to the rotation eight days later. Hahn defended manager Robin Ventura’s and pitching coach Don Cooper allowing Sale to throw a career-high 127 pitches in his fourth start of the season against Boston on Thursday. “First, I’m not smart enough to know if that was the cause of it,” Hahn said. “Second, there was no indication before that start or during that start that he was in the least bit of jeopardy of doing any damage to himself. In fact, as you can tell by this decision today we’re going to do everything in our power to protect him for the long term. This is about getting in front of any issues and make sure he’s in the best position to stay healthy for an extended career.” Sale (3-0, 2.30 ERA) earned a no-decision after pushing hard against the Boston Red Sox and Jon Lester at U.S. Cellular Field on Thursday. He gave up one hit, a home run to Xander Bogaerts in the sixth inning, and finished with 10 strikeouts and three walks. The Sox bullpen had been depleted the night before, so there was some level of necessity for him to pitch

Danks, Sox stop Tigers DETROIT – With Chris Sale out for the immediate future, John Danks may be the top remaining starter for the White Sox. He looked ready to fill that role against Detroit. Danks pitched impressively into the seventh inning, and Jose Abreu and Dayan Viciedo hit RBI doubles to lift the Sox to a 3-1 victory over the Tigers on Monday night. After the game, the Sox announced that their ace left-hander, was going on the 15-day disabled list with what the team believed was a strained muscle in his throwing arm. The Sox scored three runs in the seventh off Anibal Sanchez (0-2) after managing only one hit in the first six innings. Danks (2-0) allowed six hits and three walks in 61/3 innings, but the Tigers could score only one run off him. Ronald Belisario got five outs in relief for the Sox, and Matt Lindstrom pitched the ninth for his second save. The Sox scored three runs on four hits in a top of the seventh that took about 25 minutes. Abreu’s tying double was upheld after a replay review, and the Sox scored another run when a call at the plate was overturned after a review. Sanchez allowed three runs and five hits in 61/3 innings. He struck out five and walked one. Danks appeared to be in trouble in the second, when the Tigers had the bases loaded with nobody out after two straight walks. Alex Avila brought a run home with a groundout, but Danks got out of the jam thanks to two consecutive popups. – The Associated Press deep into the game. “Oh yeah, you’re totally aware [of the high pitch count],” Ventura said. “He said he just felt fine but he’s just sore, so, you just deal with it.” Lefty Charlie Leesman is being called up to start Tuesday’s game in Detroit, and Andre Rienzo will start Wednesday. “It’s something we have dealt with before and you just don’t want to take any chances and it just comes down to that,” Ventura said. “He got it figured out while the game was going on so get him some rest and get him healthy.” John Danks pitched 6 1/3 innings, allowing one run, to improve to 2-0 and lower his ERA to 2.48. Conor Gillaspie, Jose Abreu and Dayan Viciedo each doubled in the Sox’s three-run seventh against Anibal Sanchez (1-1). Danks said he was relieved to know that Sale’s injury isn’t believed to be serious. Hahn said Sale can rest easy knowing his arm is structurally sound. “I think it’s a big, big relief to Chris,” Hahn said. “Everything he described was consistent with the pain in terms of the location and the width of the location where he felt discomfort with what he’s experienced before.”

CHICAGO – Three regular-season weeks into the Cubs’ first managerial change under Theo Epstein, and the only thing that’s changed is some faces in the clubhouse and voices on the field staff. Same inability to score runs, same ninth-inning pitching woes, even the same win-loss record and last-place standing through 17 games. So why was it again that the Cubs changed the manager and most of the coaching staff two years into a rebuilding process in which they said the staff wouldn’t be judged on winning and losing? Dave McKay still doesn’t know and isn’t trying to figure it out. But the longtime respected coach, who won championships with Tony La Russa in Oakland and St. Louis, believes Dale Sveum’s staff did what it was asked during the two years he was with the Cubs before he landed with the Arizona Diamondbacks after Sveum’s firing last fall. “I know what I’ve done over the years, and I know what it took to do my job,” he said. “I tried to do my job well, and I kept up my end of the bargain.”

CHICAGO – Travis Wood hit a three-run homer and drove in four runs to back his nine-strikeout performance on the mound, leading the Cubs to a 5-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night. Wood (1-2) gave up a run and six hits over seven innings. His four RBIs and nine strikeouts matched career highs. Bronson Arroyo (1-2) allowed five runs and eight hits in 51/3 innings for Arizona. – The Associated Press McKay, who was credited with Alfonso Soriano’s late-career defensive renaissance, has no problem with how he was treated and praised the Cubs’ decision to keep pitching coach Chris Bosio and catching coach Mike Borzello – and also praised Epstein’s rebuilding plan and his honesty with McKay about it. But he stands behind the work Sveum and his staff did the first two years executing that plan and believes they left the process in better shape than they found it. “I think you’ve got a team that I heard never ran hard,” he said, “and I think that team

ran hard, and they played hard [the last two seasons]. I don’t think anybody could say if you came to the ballpark that they dogged it on the bases or dogged it [in the field]. They went hard. “We kind of set the table, where if you’re a Chicago Cub, you play the game hard. And anybody that comes in here and doesn’t is going to stand out. He should stand out.” McKay was as surprised as Sveum and others on the staff when Epstein’s sudden “no alarm bells” foreshadowing of the firing was raised with two weeks left in the season. For all the rationale about Sveum’s communication issues, the business department’s behind-the-scenes pursuit of – and promise to land – then-free agent manager Joe Girardi played a role. What McKay knows for sure is the same thing new manager Rick Renteria acknowledges about the process he inherited midstream: “I don’t know if I’m starting over,” Renteria said. “The one thing I know is that I’m sure that along the way a lot of the same things that I’m addressing or speaking to have probably been talked about before. I’m sure I’ll benefit from that.”

NHL PLAYOFFS ROUNDUP

Granlund’s OT goal lifts Wild over Avs The ASSOCIATED PRESS ST. PAUL, Minn. – Mikael Granlund’s diving swing at his own rebound 5:08 into overtime gave the Minnesota Wild a 1-0 win over Semyon Varlamov and the Colorado Avalanche in Game 3 on Monday to pull within 2-1 in the bestof-seven Western Conference quarterfinal series.

Varlamov stopped 45 of 46 shots, a franchise playoff record number of shots on goal for the Wild. Penguins 4, Blue Jackets 3: At Columbus, Ohio, Brandon Sutter, Lee Stempniak and Jussi Jokinen scored in a span of 2:13 of the third period to revive Pittsburgh in a victory over Columbus. Pittsburgh took a 2-1 lead in

the best-of-seven Eastern Conference quarterfinal playoff series, thanks to the goals on three consecutive shots. Stars 3, Ducks 0: At Dallas, Kari Lehtonen made 37 saves, with some tremendous stops, for his first career postseason victory, and Dallas beat Anaheim in its first home playoff game in six years to cut the Ducks’ series lead to 2-1.

AMERICAN DROUGHT ENDS

Keflezighi first U.S. man to win Boston since 1983 By PAT EATON–ROBB The ASSOCIATED PRESS

In show of defiance, 32K-plus run course Bombings don’t scare off huge field By JIMMY GOLEN

Meb Keflezighi of San Diego celebrates his victory Monday in the 118th Boston Marathon. high school in nearby Marblehead, finished seventh after leading for more than half the race. She gambled by setting the early pace, but fell back on the Newton Hills about 21 miles into the race. “It does mean a lot to be that my city was proud of me,” she said. “I’m proud of how I ran. I don’t wish it was easier. I wish I was better.” After breaking a 27-year American drought at the New York marathon, Keflezighi contemplated retiring after the 2012 NYC Marathon. But that race was canceled because of Superstorm Sandy, and he pulled out of the Boston Marathon last April because of injury. He watched the race from the stands at the finish line, but said he left about five minutes before the bombs went off. He was the first American to medal in an Olympic marathon since Frank Shorter won gold in 1972 and silver in 1976. His 2009 New York victory broke a 27-year American drought there. Another American, Tatyana McFadden, celebrated her 25th birthday Monday by winning the women’s wheelchair race for the second straight year. She was timed in 1 hour, 35 minutes, 6 seconds. McFadden was born in Russia and lived in an orphanage as a child before starring at the University of Illinois. She also won the 2013 NYC Marathon women’s wheelchair race after taking the titles in Boston, London and Chicago last year. Ernst van Dyk of South Africa won the men’s wheelchair division for a record 10th time. The 41-year-old crossed in 1 hour, 20 minutes, 36 seconds. • Associated Press freelance writer Ken Powtak contributed to this report.

The Associated Press BOSTON – Some ran to honor the dead and wounded. Others did it to prove something about their sport, the city or their country. And some were out to prove something to themselves. With the names of the victims scrawled on their bodies or their race bibs, more than 32,000 people crossed the starting line Monday at the Boston Marathon in a powerful show of defiance a year after the deadly bombings. “We’re marathon runners. We know how to endure,” said Dennis Murray, a 62-year-old health care administrator from Atlanta who finished just before the explosions last year and came back to run again. “When they try to take our freedom and our democracy, we come back stronger.” The two pressure-cooker bombs that went off near the end of the 26.2-mile course last year killed three people and wounded more than 260 in a hellish spectacle of torn limbs, smoke and broken glass. The runners this time hit the streets under extraordinary security that included a battery of surveillance cameras, more than 90 bomb-sniffing dogs and officers posted on roofs. By late afternoon, as runners continued to drag themselves across the finish line more than six hours into the race, state emergency officials reported no security threats, other than some unattended bags. In what some saw as altogether fitting, Meb Keflezighi, a 38-year-old U.S. citizen who came to this country from Eritrea as a boy, became the first American in 31 years to win the men’s race. As he was presented with the trophy and laurel wreath, “The Star-Spangled Banner” echoed over Boylston Street, where the explosions rang out a year ago. “I came as a refugee, and the United States gave me hope,” said Keflezighi, who wrote the names of the three dead on his bib along with that of the MIT police officer who was killed during the manhunt that para-

BOSTON – “The Star-Spangled Banner” played over Boylston Street in honor of an American winner of the Boston Marathon. One year after a bombing there killed three people and left more than 260 injured, Meb Keflezighi added Boston to a resume that includes the New York City Marathon title in 2009 and a silver medal in the 2004 Olympics. Running just two weeks before his 39th birthday, he had the names of the 2013 bombing victims on his bib. “At the end, I just kept thinking, ‘Boston Strong. Boston Strong,’ ” he said. “I was thinking ‘Give everything you have. If you get beat, that’s it.’ ” Keflezighi completed the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to the finish on Boylston Street in Boston’s Back Bay on Monday in a personal-best 2 hours, 8 minutes, 37 seconds. He held off Kenya’s Wilson Chebet, who finished 11 seconds behind. Keflezighi went out early and built a big lead. But he was looking over his shoulder several times as Chebet closed the gap over the final two miles. After realizing he wouldn’t be caught, Keflezighi raised his sunglasses, began pumping his right fist and made the sign of the cross. He broke into tears after crossing the finish line, then draped himself in the American flag. No U.S. runner had won the race since Lisa Larsen-Weidenbach took the women’s title in 1985. The last American man to win was Greg Meyer in 1983. Meyer and Keflezighi embraced after the race. “I’m blessed to be an American and God bless America and God bless Boston for this special day,” Keflezighi said. Rita Jeptoo of Kenya successfully defended the women’s title she said she could not enjoy a year ago. Jeptoo finished in a course-record 2 hours, 18 minutes, 57 seconds. She is a three-time Boston Marathon champion, having also won in 2006. “I came here to support the people in Boston and show them that we are here together,” she said. “I decided to support them and show them we are here together.” Jeptoo broke away from a group of five runners at the 23-mile mark. Buzunesh Deba of Ethiopia finished second in 2:19:59. Countrywoman Mare Dibaba was third at 2:19:52. All three women came in under the previous course record. American Shalane Flanagan, who went to

Later in the day Monday, at 2:49 p.m., the time the bombs went off, a moment of silence was observed at the finish line. It was followed by some of the loudest cheers of the day as people whooped, clapped and rang cowbells. “Boston Strong” – the unofficial slogan adopted after the terrorist attack – was everywhere as the second-largest field of runners in the 118-year history of the race took part. Many of them were runners who had to abandon the race last year because of the attack. “Today, when I got to that point, I said, ‘I have to do some unfinished business,’” said runner Vicki Schmidt, 52, of Nashville. She added: “You can’t hold us back. You can’t get us down. Boston is magical. This is our place.” While Gov. Deval Patrick said there had been no specific threats against the race or the city, police along the route examined backpacks, and runners had to use clear plastic bags for their belongings. More than 100 cameras were installed along the course in Boston, officials said. Runner Scott Weisberg, 44, from Birmingham, Ala., said he had trouble sleeping the night before. “With everything that happened last year, I can’t stop worrying about it happening again. I know the chances are slim to none, but I can’t help having a nervous pit in my stomach,” Weisberg said. Race organizers expanded the field from its recent cap of

27,000 to make room for more than 5,000 runners who were still on the course last year at the time of the explosions, for friends and relatives of the victims, and for those who were “profoundly impacted” by the attack. Kenya’s Rita Jeptoo won the women’s race in a course-record 2 hours, 18 minutes, 57 seconds, defending the title she won last year. Keflizighi won the men’s title in 2 hours, 8 minutes, 37 seconds. On Twitter, President Barack Obama congratulated Keflizighi and Shalane Flanagan, the top American finisher among the women, “for making American proud!” “All of today’s runners showed the world the meaning of #BostonStrong,” Obama wrote. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 20, is awaiting trial in the attack and could get the death penalty. Prosecutors said he and his older brother – ethnic Chechens who came to the U.S. from Russia more than a decade ago – carried out the attack in retaliation for U.S. wars in Muslim lands. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died in a shootout with police days after the bombings. • Associated Press Writers

TIP OF THE WEEK

Pills, creams aren’t enough to bust cellulite. Strength, endurance exercises replace muscle tissue.

Not all calories created equal We hate to break it to you, but a 150-calorie brownie is not the same as 150 calories worth of broccoli. But what about that age-old weight loss saying, “Calories in vs. calories out?” Well, it’s true a calorie is a calorie regardless of its source, but not all calories have the same effect on your body. Here’s what you should be eating to get the most bang for your calories’ buck: • Make friends with fiber. Fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains are fiberrich foods you want in your grocery cart. Fiber requires more chewing, which means your brain has more time to get the “full” signal and prevent you from overeating. And since fiber takes longer to digest, the calories in whole-grain toast go farther than the calories in a candy bar. The end result? You feel satisfied longer. • Choose healthy fats. Healthy fats such as olive oil, canola oil, avocados, nuts and seeds are by no means considered low-calorie, but when eaten in moderation, they make you feel fuller longer and stop overeating. And while saturated fats and trans fats raise cholesterol, unsaturated fats actually aid in muscle recovery, improve hair and skin quality, and are important for a healthy heart. Can a 100-calorie snack pack do all that, as half an avocado does? Nope. • Polish off protein. Protein is one of your body’s biggest allies. Not only do you burn more calories digesting and metabolizing protein than any other nutrient, but protein leaves you feeling fuller longer than eating an equally caloriedense carbohydrate.

KIDS’ HEALTH

Nurture your baby’s brain When babies are born, their minds are still a work in progress, and their brains will rapidly grow and develop based on their experience. To nurture brain development, talk to your baby in a responsive way, starting at birth. Watch how he responds to your face, focuses, and moves in time to your voice. As he grows, talk to him about everyday things, waiting for his coos and ahhs, and then respond with an encouraging word.

A REAL

CELLULITE SOLUTION BIGSTOCK.COM PHOTO

One out of every two Americans follows a calorie-restricted diet plan in an attempt to lose weight. As a nation, we will spend almost $40 billion on diet programs this year. A large percentage of those who are trying to lose weight also are attempting to improve a physical appearance problem typically referred to as cellulite. As you might be aware, there are dozens of cellulite-reducing products on the market, including pills, powders, drinks, wraps, creams and mechanical devices, to name a few. Many of these products gross more than $50 million a year. Given that a lot of women are paying a lot of money for products that might have minimal effect on their cellulite situation, let’s take a closer look at the physical phenomenon known as cellulite.

and adds about 15 pounds of fat every decade of adult life. This represents only a 10-pound per decade change in body weight, but is actually a 20-pound per decade change in body composition. At first, the progressive reduction in muscle tissue goes unnoticed because of the additional fat and greater body weight. Also, until significant muscle mass is lost, our fat stores remain fairly evenly layered between the underlying muscle and the overlying skin. However, as time goes on we lose more of the muscle that gives us a solid, firm and toned physical appearance, and we replace it with increasing amounts of fat. Because fat is exceptionally soft tissue, it doesn’t keep our skin taut as muscle does. Consequently, when there is too little muscle to maintain our desirable shape, the skin tends to take on the lumpy look of the irregular fat deposits beneath it.

What is cellulite?

What eliminates cellulite?

First, there is no such tissue as cellulite. Generally speaking, cellulite is the name given to excess fat that is no longer evenly distributed under the skin, but is clumped together in uneven bundles that present a rippled and dimpled appearance. Although cellulite is basically fat, it is poorly packaged fat that presents unattractive body contours known variously as the oatmeal, cottage cheese or mashed potato look.

The first step in solving the cellulite problem is to reduce the underlying fat stores, which can be accomplished through dieting, aerobic activity or both. Unfortunately, as many people have discovered, simply decreasing the fat deposits does not necessarily improve the cellulite appearance. The skin might still stay soft and saggy, and look even more dimpled because there is less substantial muscle tissue to give it shape. In addition to reducing excess fat, it’s essential to replace lost muscle tissue through strength exercise. Only when firm and fit muscle is developed will you look taut and toned. Without question, adding muscle is just as important as losing fat to rectify the rippled look and reshape your body.

What causes cellulite? Basically, we all experience undesirable changes in our body composition as we age, most notably less muscle and more fat. In fact, the average inactive woman loses about 5 pounds of muscle

What is the cellulite solution? My recommendation is a relatively brief but fairly comprehensive program of strength and endurance exercise that works to concurrently reduce body fat and replace muscle tissue. The basic program requires about 40 minutes of physical activity (combined strength and endurance exercise), two to three days a week.

Research study A few years ago, 115 women participated in our cellulite reduction research study. Each participant performed 20 minutes of strength training and 20 minutes of aerobic activity, two or three days a week, for a period of eight weeks. After two months of training, the women (on average) lost almost five pounds of fat, gained more than a pound of muscle, and reduced their hip size by more than 1 inch. Without any change in their diet they attained major improvements in their body composition and physical appearance. About 25 percent of the participants reported less cellulite, and about 75 percent of the women reported a lot less cellulite. This was confirmed by ultrasound measurements of their thighs, which showed a significant reduction in the fat layer and a significant increase in the muscle layer. In addition, all of the women reported the exercise program was a positive and productive experience that improved their muscle strength, cardiovascular endurance and self-confidence.

Redheads are rare, and not without medical troubles About 3 percent of people in the United States are redheads. To become a redhead, you need two recessive genes – one gene from each parent. Neither parent needs to have red hair to have children with red hair, but mother and father must carry the gene for red hair. These genes are more common in individuals with Scottish and Irish backgrounds. It is well known redheads are at a higher risk of developing melanomas and other types of skin cancers, but there are other interest-

VIEWS Dr. Murray Feingold ing medical facts concerning redheads. Redheads require more anesthesia to reduce pain than non-redheads. In a recent study, redheads required 20 percent more anesthesia than non-redheads. They also are more sensitive to heat and cold. There appears to be a two-fold increase in the rate of Parkinson’s disease in

redheads. This apparently is due to a mutation in a certain gene that is present in redheads. On a more positive note, redheads maintain their natural hair color longer than do individuals with other hair colors. And, it’s been reported they do not develop gray hair. The hair turns to a sandy-blonde color and ultimately white. Some years ago, there was a report that redheads would soon become extinct. However, there is no scientific evidence that substantiates this claim. Other claims have been

made about redheads, such as they have a “hot temper.” Although there might be some scientific articles on this subject, I could not find any. Some people believe those with red hair are more likely to have bleeding problems or hemorrhaging. However, there is no scientific evidence to substantiate this claim. But it is true the hair of individuals subjected to severe malnutrition, such as in a famine, might turn red. This condition is known as kwashiorkor. Another medical fact is there is a rare form of albinism

that is associated, not only with red hair, but also red skin. Perhaps this is a lot more information than you would like to know about redheads, but it is interesting.

Martial arts participants find ‘inner warrior’ By HOWARD SCHNEIDER The Washington Post Ana Petricel is 17, a high school senior who plans to become a doctor, and more than once she has knocked me on my you-know-what — despite my 70-pound advantage and enough extra years to know better. As she should. Whether we were practicing how to defend against a punch, a grab or other attacks, her responses were all of a kind: designed to blend with the attack, avoid harm, control my balance and put me on the ground. “I am not a violent person,” said Petricel, who trains in the Japanese martial art of aikido at the D.C. Aikido dojo in Washington. “I don’t see this as just pure exercise. It is an art as well as martial. It’s spiritual. Physical. Intellectual. It’s a workout. But that’s not just why I’m here.” Whether they’re fed by the movies or the rise of mixed martial arts fighting, there are a lot of stereotypes about martial arts. Petricel doesn’t fit that mold. Neither do I, nor do the thousands of students, think tank analysts, lawyers, nonprofit advocates, engineers and others who practice the diverse martial arts styles. Here is the reality: A wellrun dojo will be incredibly welcoming to beginners and typically filled with trainees of different sexes, ages, sizes and fitness levels. You also will find plenty of fun, whether your aim is to learn to spar in tae kwon do, parry with your hands and feet in capoiera, master the turning techniques of aikido or learn the fine points of grappling in Brazilian jujitsu. The spectrum is a broad one. Over time, the martial arts push you out of any comfort zone – a mental benefit. But they also have an encompassing impact on your health: Better cardio is a given, but these are activities that also improve strength, posture, flexibility and balance, all important pillars of fitness (the latter two in particular for those of us who have pushed into our 50s and beyond). You learn to move in more diverse ways. Had you asked me five years ago whether I would ever do a standing barrel roll or survive a hip throw, I’d have shaken my head. But these are things you train to do – gradually and safely. None of that is surprising,

Ana Petricel, 17, practices at D.C. Aikido, where students of all ages and levels of experience and physical fitness take part. perhaps. These activities have thrived for a reason, whether it is the graceful tai chi (yes, it’s a martial art) seen so commonly in Chinese parks, or the vigorous sparring of Western boxing or Japanese karate. “In my experience I can teach anyone to do anything with aikido as long as they want to learn,” said Michael Veltri, the owner of D.C. Aikido and sensei to Petricel, me and the others. To test that world beyond aikido, I went to beginner sessions at Yong Studios in Washington for a tae kwon do class and Roda Movements Studio in Takoma Park, Md., to try capoiera. As someone with no prior

training in those disciplines, would I get anything out of a first class? Would I be welcomed, or feel like the klutzy new kid on the block? These are the anxieties that can keep us from doing things we want to try. My advice is to put those notions on a shelf and forget it.

Distinct disciplines The first thing that became obvious is how distinct disciplines are. That is important to keep in mind. If you want to pursue a martial art, don’t just rush to the nearest karate studio and sign up. Investigate the origins, ethic, style and culture of different disciplines, try a few different introductory ses-

sions, and see what clicks. Do you want to strike and kick? Grab and throw? Spin? Tumble? Spar? Are you an 11 on the intensity scale, or want something that works more on the mind and spirit? Just as an example: In aikido we thrive on circular motion – using turning movements and the energy of an opponent’s attack to put them off balance, principles also applied in learning how to fall safely. As we grow older, that particular skill adds a new element to the concept of selfdefense. In tae kwon do, by contrast, “everything is a straight line,” said Peter Hounsell, the instructor of a recent beginner’s

class. We worked for most of the hour on kicks, and the aim was to align everything from the angle of the foot through the placement of the hips and shoulders to generate maximum force. I was lousy at it. That wasn’t the point. “This really should be like a home,” said Do Yong Kim, owner and master instructor of the studio. “You can make mistakes. When you are here, it’s safe. People don’t judge. You’re just another person training.” Capoiera adds a fully different dimension. Among advanced practitioners the workout becomes an almost gymnastic routine where seeming falls turn into kicks and “opponents” sweep and avoid each other’s legs in a dance-like partnership. It’s even accompanied by drums and singing, true to its Brazilian origins. But you don’t need to be able to cartwheel to participate, so don’t be intimidated. When there are new students, instructor and owner Roberto Tapia splits the class and spends time with the beginner group to teach basic moves that can be picked up in one session. And at first it does feel like you are dancing – until you realize how the hand is positioned for a strike and the feet for a kick. “If you want to be effective,” he said, “it has to be pretty.”

Joining a community Once you select a discipline that seems right for you, visit a studio or dojo and pay attention to the people: how they train and interact, whether the beginners get adequate attention. In this sort of training, you are joining a community, and the more you like that community, the more you are apt to stick with it. Look also at things such as the level of ritual involved; some places are sticklers on certain points of etiquette, others more relaxed, and you should be comfortable and ready to adapt to whatever customs are in play. The bowing, clapping or class mottos might seem affected. But it’s part of absorbing the culture, and you’ll find that much of it either involves safety or provides a moment of focus that makes the practice more effective. And pay attention to the entire class. Are the warm-ups adequate? Over the course of an hour, do you seem to get the exercise you would want? Finally, ask questions about the place and the people in charge. How long have they been in business? What’s their training? What are their goals? Most important, commit to at least a few steady months of training, even if progress seems slow and there’s a temptation to quit. The benefits are real. But only if you get knocked down a few times.

Don’t meddle in office affair Weigh side effects of drugs to unless it interferes with work reduce risk of breast cancer Dear Abby: I manage a group of 15 employees. A few months ago, I hired the wife of an old friend. Until now she has been a great employee, but recently she and a male co-worker have been taking lunches and breaks together in a way that leads me to believe they are flirting or have already crossed the line. Because we have a small group, I worry about how this will affect my team members, who know she’s married. I also feel bad for the husband, who is a very caring and kind man. As a manager, I don’t think I can say anything unless their liaison interferes with their work performance. But I hate to watch this progress and see people end up hurt. What can I do? – Management Decision Dear Management: Unless the flirtation becomes a distraction for “the team,” you should stay out of it. Much as you might like to intervene, your friend’s wife and this co-worker are adults and responsible for their own behavior. Dear Abby: My girlfriend watches the 24-hour news channels and seems to be obsessed with them. It is hurting our relationship and affecting her happiness. She

constantly is worried about national and international politics, global warming, the economy, health care, crime, etc. She neglects herself and her family. She seems agitated, anxious and depressed by all the news. Is this a disease? How can I help her get off this habit? What should I do? – Miser-

Is there an etiquette rule on this issue? I feel bad, but not bad enough that I think I should pay for such an expensive shirt. If you have the means to pay for a shirt that expensive, I don’t believe you should expect others to replace it. – Chris

While this technically might not be a disease, it is exhausting and depressing. When the same thing started happening to me, I fixed it by turning off the news and going “cold turkey.” After a four-day news blackout, I felt like my buoyant self again. Now I ration my exposure. Please share this with your girlfriend because it’s what I’m recommending for her. Dear Abby: At a wedding, while shaking hands with

dictate you offer to pay for having the shirt cleaned. A good dry cleaner might be able to remove the stain, but it should be done as soon as possible. Any time a person has a stained garment, it should be taken to a professional and what caused the stain identified, so it can be removed. Trying to treat it yourself can make removal more difficult. If the stain is permanent, then you should pay to replace the shirt. Ask yourself what’s more important – 180 bucks or your friendship?

Dear Dr. K: My mother had breast cancer, so I believe I’m at higher risk than are most women. Should I take medication to prevent breast cancer? Dear Reader: Without more details, I can’t give you a personal recommendation. But I can tell you about drugs available to prevent breast cancer and who, in general, should consider taking them. There are different types of breast cancer. The most common type is “estrogen receptor-positive” (ERpositive). This type of breast cancer needs the hormone estrogen to grow. Well-designed studies have shown two drugs – tamoxifen and raloxifene – reduce the risk of ER-positive breast cancer. (Tamoxifen appears to be more effective than raloxifene.) These drugs are known as selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs). (I’ve put more information about tamoxifen and raloxifene on my website, www.askdoctork.com.) So far, so good. The problem is SERMs can cause side effects, some serious. These include increased risk of blood clots and hot flashes. Tamoxifen also increases the risk of uterine cancer and cataracts. The question

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff is: For which women do the benefits of these drugs outweigh the possible side effects? Late last year, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force issued guidelines on the subject. They recommended physicians should offer to prescribe tamoxifen or raloxifene to women who are at high risk for ER-positive breast cancer and low risk for side effects. Your doctor can estimate your breast cancer risk by taking several factors into account. These include your age, history of breast or ovarian cancer in a firstdegree relative, and the age at which you first gave birth. Factors that decrease your risk for side effects include being younger than 50 years, having no risk factors for blood clots or stroke (such as being a smoker), and not having a uterus. You can estimate your breast cancer risk with an online tool from the National Cancer Institute’s website: www.cancer.gov/bcrisktool. After you enter information about yourself, the tool gives

you an estimate of your risk over the next five years, and over a lifetime. I am not aware of any similar tools to estimate your risks from taking either tamoxifen or raloxifene. As a general rule, doctors generally advise against taking these drugs if you: • Have had past serious blood clots requiring treatment; • Are taking bloodthinning medicines such as warfarin (Coumadin) or heparin; • Have high blood pressure, obesity or diabetes; • Are a smoker; • Are younger than 35 years old; • Are between 35 and 60 years old, and not at increased risk for breast cancer; • Are taking hormone replacement therapy or an aromatase inhibitor; • Have had any type of uterine cancer. In addition, women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, or who are currently breastfeeding, should generally avoid tamoxifen. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at www.askdoctork.com or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- There is someone you can’t stop thinking about. Get in touch with this person, share your feelings and plan something special to satisfy your romantic mood. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Be ready for a moneymaking or professional opportunity to come your way. Network with your peers to encounter career options. You must handle joint ventures cautiously. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You’ll face opposition if you voice your opinion. There is someone in your circle who may be able to offer some helpful advice. Listen to it, but ultimately make choices based on your needs. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Social media or a vocational seminar could offer valuable insight regarding future job prospects. Consider what interests you the most, do your research and make an informed decision. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Physical activity will be challenging but rewarding. You can improve your self-image and make new friends. Your confidence and popularity are on the rise. Enjoy close encounters.

Whether you comb the Internet, join a discussion group or do some research at your local library, there are plenty of interesting topics to discover. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Although you may be inclined to spend some money on your own enjoyment, this is not a good time to lend cash or possessions to others. An interesting investment will increase your income. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t give in to pressure. Make your decisions based on facts. Take your time and wait until you are absolutely sure that you’re making the best choice. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You may be tempted to get involved in an unusual or questionable activity. Intrigue and adventure must not entice you to participate in a shady endeavor. Focus on structured activities. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- The attention you offer a younger person will be appreciated. If you are patient and understanding, your compassion and caring will help you form a closer bond and a new ally.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

Flip Wilson, a comedian and actor who died in 1998, said, “Get-well cards have become so humorous that if you don’t get sick, you’re missing half the fun.” If you miss the right play at the bridge table, it is not fun and can make you feel uncomfortable. Let’s stay it and healthy during today’s deal. South is in three no-trump. What should he do after West leads the diamond queen? Note North’s rebid. He could not support spades or hearts, or rebid diamonds, or bid no-trump. He solved the problem by resorting to three clubs, the artiicial fourthsuit game-forcing. The most common reason for using fourth-suit-forcing is a desire to get to three no-trump, but the responder does not have a stopper in that fourth suit. Declarer has seven top tricks: one spade, two hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. The opening lead makes it impossible that the diamonds are breaking favorably. Instead, South must play to win three spade tricks. He cashes dummy’s ace (both defenders play low), then leads the

spade ive toward his hand. Assuming East plays low, what should declarer do? If the suit is splitting 3-3, everything will work. But what about a more likely 4-2 division? If West has king-queenfourth, declarer is going down. If East has king-queenfourth, putting up the jack (or 10) is the winning play. However, if West began with a doubleton, it is 8 to 6 that he has honor-doubleton, not lowdoubleton. So South should play low from his hand, which, of course, works here.

BLACKHAWKS 2

GAME 3

BLUES LEAD SERIES, 2-1 Hawks quick hits WHAT WORKED • Quick strike After allowing the Blues to score the opening goals in Games 1 and 2, the Blackhawks jumped out to an early lead in Game 3. Jonathan Toews threw the puck at the net and surprised Blues goaltender Ryan Miller, who did not react quickly enough to make what should have been an easy save. • Mind over body Niklas Hjalmarsson has been a terrific shot blocker throughout his career with the Hawks, but his efforts in this series deserve special recognition. Hjalmarsson placed his body in front of several hard shots, gaining bruises along with the respect of Hawks fans and teammates. • Fearsome foursome The Hawks’ penalty-killing unit stymied the Blues, preventing scoring opportunities and bailing out teammates for foolish penalties. Andrew Shaw, Bryan Bickell and Marcus Kruger each earned two-minute stints in the penalty box, but Toews, Marian Hossa and Michal Handzus each helped to clear the zone. AP file photo

The Blackhawks’ Jeremy Morin plays against the Columbus Blue Jackets on April 4 in Columbus, Ohio. Morin has not dressed for any of the Hawks’ playoff games this season.

Waiting for his chance As tweets fly, Blackhawks’ young Morin shows #maturity CHICAGO – Blackhawks forward Jeremy Morin finished his morning skate Monday and headed to his locker to change out of his sweat-soaked pads. Morin knew he wouldn’t need those pads for Game 3 against the St. Louis Blues. The talented 23-year-old remained inactive despite the public pleading of fans and former teammates who called on the Hawks to give him a chance to play. “Obviously, I want to be in the lineup, and that’s the goal,” said Morin, who shined with the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL. “But, at the same time, I’m excited to be here.” Two days earlier, one of Morin’s former Rockford teammates had created a stir during the middle of the Game 2 in St. Louis. That player, current Florida Panthers forward Brandon Pirri, had taken to Twitter to express his frustration. By the time the puck dropped on Game 3 of the Western Conference quarterfinals, Pirri’s message – “#freemorin” – had tallied 1,153 retweets and 745 favorites. Like it or not, verbal shots had been fired at the Hawks’ decision-makers. Imagine if Devin Hester were to tweet “trestmanstinks” in the middle of a Bears game next fall. Or if Alfonso

VIEWS Tom Musick Soriano were to tweet “#1908” as the Cubs let another game slip away. Yet none of Pirri’s retweets or favorites came from Hawks coach Joel Quenneville (who is not on Twitter, although his mustache has an account). Quenneville has the final say in regard to the Hawks’ playoff lineup, and he stuck to his veteran-laden roster in Game 3 rather than inserting Morin for a player such as Brandon Bollig. Maybe Morin appreciated the supportive tweet from his friend and former teammate. Or maybe it gave him a giant headache. Within seconds, the answer was clear. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then Morin’s expression was worth a thousand Twitter hashtags. #ohbrother #pleasedropit #nocomment “I don’t have anything to say about that,” Morin said. It was a smart move by the former second-round draft pick from upstate New York. Perhaps Pirri’s lack of patience was the reason the Hawks

shipped him out of town. No player comes ahead of the team on the Hawks, especially when that player is a rookie with loads of potential but little in the way of NHL production. Morin understands his role as one of the new guys. He skillfully has balanced the line between wanting to play and gratefully supporting his teammates. “Everybody here wants to be playing,” Morin said. “It’s just human nature to want to be in the lineup. “At the same time, supporting your teammates is a different role. It’s just whatever you can do to help the team, whether it’s a practice or something like that. That’s what I’m trying to do. We’re all trying to stay ready and be there for each other.” It’s a position that even rivals can appreciate. Blues forward Adam Cracknell split his time during the regular season between the NHL and the AHL, where he played for the Chicago Wolves. Cracknell earned a spot in the Blues’ playoff lineup and took advantage by scoring the first goal of Game 1. From his years playing against Morin in the minors, Cracknell said it was clear that the Hawks’ prospect also was capable of making big plays

in big moments. “I’ve played quite a bit against him,” Cracknell said. “I’ve been in the same situation. You’re up and down, and you’re kind of in and out of the lineup.” It’s a tough spot. But it’s better to yo-yo than to not play at all. “You wait for that phone call,” Cracknell said. “I was in Des Moines, Iowa, a couple of weeks ago. You just sit there and you’re watching hockey and all of a sudden a couple of guys go down and you get the call, and now I’m playing against the Blackhawks in Game 1 and 2. “You never know when that call will come, but for guys like us, you always have to be ready. When you’re down, you can’t go on the negative side. You have to stay positive.” Morin is staying positive and savoring his up-close view of the playoffs. “Every game is a do-or-die kind of thing,” Morin said. “Anything for the team.” So here’s a new hashtag, dedicated to Morin. #teamplayer • Northwest Herald sports columnist Tom Musick can be reached at tmusick@shawmedia.com and on Twitter @tcmusick.

HAWKS NOTES

Defenseman Brookbank relishes opportunity to play key role By MARK POTASH mpotash@suntimes.com CHICAGO – A bit player for most of his seven seasons in the NHL, defenseman Sheldon Brookbank cherishes every opportunity to play in a big game. But especially this one. A rough-and-tumble series with the Blues is his kind of game. “Better believe it,’’ said the 33-year-old Brookbank, who was third on the team in penalty minutes in the regular season (52) despite

playing in just 48 games. “It’s gonna be tough. [You] have to keep yourself in check and not get too caught up in all the stuff. So far it’s had a lot of bite to it and I don’t expect that to change at all.” Brookbank was paired with Duncan Keith in Game 3 as a replacement for Brent Seabrook, who was suspended for three games for his hit on St. Louis Blues forward David Backes in Game 2 of the Western Conference firstround series in St. Louis. “He’s a steady guy – sim-

ple; direct,” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. “Hard to play against and he gives us that [physical] presence back there, as well.” Brookbank was in a similar role in the playoffs last year when he replaced Keith, who had been suspended in Game 4 against the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference final at Staples Center. Brookbank had not played in more than five weeks, however, and it showed. He was a minus-2 in 6:50 of ice time,

though the Hawks rallied to win, 3-2. This time, Brookbank came in on a nine-day layoff. “Hopefully I won’t be as rusty, and still have the rhythm going from the regular season,” he said.

Crawford’s frustration: Hawks goalie Corey Crawford admitted he has to play better than he has, but lamented a few close calls that have helped turn this series in the Blues’ favor. “Last game, I touched three pucks that went into

the net. As a goalie it’s kind of frustrating when those go in, when you get a piece of it,” Crawford said. “Two of them went through me. The late in the first period [with less than one second left], I go across and it hit the top of my blocker. “It’s just a matter of finding a way to make those saves. For most of them I was in position – right there and getting a piece of it. “It’s tough when you play it that way and it still goes in.”

WHAT DIDN’T WORK • Out of the crease Corey Crawford works hard on playing the puck during practice, but Monday was not his finest moment as a stickhandler. On a dangerous play in the first period, Crawford miscommunicated with defenseman Duncan Keith and allowed the puck to squirt loose in front of the net. Fortunately, no Blues players were near. • Power outage The Hawks continued to struggle badly on the man advantage, wasting more than seven minutes of power-play time in Game 3. During the second period, the Hawks had a 5-on-3 advantage for 37 seconds but still could not manage to score. In three playoff games, the Hawks are 1 for 14 on the power play. • Clean passes Without clean passes, it’s tough to move the puck into the offensive zone. Without moving the puck into the offensive zone, it’s tough to score. The biggest reason for the Hawks’ long quiet spell on offense was because they could not move through the neutral zone against the Blues, who seemingly got in the way of every pass. STARS OF THE GAME • Corey Crawford Crawford said he needed to play better heading into Game 3, and he delivered in a big way. He stopped all 34 shots. • Jonathan Toews Toews was dominant in the faceoff circle, pesky on the forecheck and scored the Hawks’ first goal of the game. What more can be said? • Marian Hossa Although Hossa’s terrific effort won’t show up in the box score, he was the Hawks’ toughest player in Game 3. No matter how hard the Blues tried, they could not knock Hossa off the puck.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING “We were able to set up and we had some good looks. It’s tough. Their goalie made the saves when he had to. But I think it’s definitely something we can build off of.” – Duncan Keith on the Hawks’ power play

My ears hurt. #Blackhawks #anthem @MorrisseyCST, Rick Morrissey El capitan.

@Ky1eLong, Kyle Long About 3 St. Louis Blues fans tried getting a “Let’s go Blues” chant going. It went nowhere. @ChuckGarfien, Chuck Garfien Corey Crawford is better with a white glove than Michael Jackson. #Blackhawks @mattlindner, Matt Lindner

STRIKING BACK Crawford records his 3rd career postseason shutout BY MARK LAZERUS mlazerus@suntimes.com CHICAGO – Corey Crawford and Joel Quenneville had a chat Sunday. It didn’t take long. “The task at hand was pretty obvious,” Crawford said. “The performance we needed was obvious, too.” Crawford made a statement to his teammates and his coach by calling himself out after allowing goals late in Games 1 and 2, then losing in overtime. He made a bigger one Monday by bouncing back with a 2-0 shutout of St. Louis in Game 3, making 34 saves and keeping the relentless Blues off the scoreboard in an excruciating third period. The Blackhawks now trail the first-round series 2-1, with Game 4 on Wednesday night at the United Center. The Hawks needed every one of those saves, as Crawford made Jonathan Toews’ early soft goal on Ryan Miller stand up for more than 50 tense minutes until Marcus Kruger’s empty-netter with 20 seconds left allowed the 22,112 fans at the United Center to finally exhxale.

Michal Handzus called it the Hawks’ worst third period of the series, as the Blues camped out in the offensive zone and peppered Crawford with 11 shots. But they never beat him. “They had the chances, we were kind of on our heels,” Handzus said. “But Crow played great and he stepped up, bigtime.” Toews was glad to see it. He also was glad to see him step up and assume responsibility after Game 2. “It just sets an example for everyone in this room when you have guys with attitudes like that, that are very selfless and not thinking about themselves and whether they’re being criticized or not,” Toews said. “He wants to win. That’s all that matters to him. And I think that shows a lot to the rest of the guys in the room.” With the score so close and the stakes so high, everything else – the scrums, the dirty play, the revenge for Brent Seabrook’s high hit that knocked out Blues captain David Backes and earned Seabrook a three-game suspension – faded away. It was two very good teams

playing very good hockey. And the Blues were the better team for much of the night, playing their best game of the series. They dominated the puck and kept the pressure on Crawford all night. But Crawford stood tall to record his third career postseason shutout. He got plenty of help by the likes of Niklas Hjalmarsson and Handzus, who blocked several shots on the penalty kill; Sheldon Brookbank, who stepped in admirably for Seabrook; and Bryan Bickell, who delivered a game-high eight hits while staying within the bounds of legality. In all, the Hawks blocked 24 shots and killed three power plays – offsetting a dreadful power play (0 for 4) and an offense that was suffocated by the Blues. Toews’ seemingly harmless wrist shot four minutes into the game somehow went through Miller’s legs, and that’s all it took. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock called it his team’s “best game by far.” “We did a lot of the things we needed to do to win the hockey game, but you’ve got to give their goalie credit,” he said. “He was good, especially late.”

Defensive player of the year: Hjalmarsson’s torso. @amandakaschube, Amanda Kaschube Much tamer game between #Blackhawks & #Blues tonight, except for the last older couple on the kiss cam who decided to tongue at each other!! @peggykusinski, Peggy Kusinski So the Blackhawks will have the lead in the third period. What could go wrong? @cotsonika, Nick Cotsonika Tonight’s shoot-the-puck winner at the UC will get to play on the Hawks’ top power-play unit in the third period. #CHIvsSTL @Schaumy, Jason Schaumburg My gosh. Get it out of the zone, get some offense, and add a goal. #Hawks @WaddleandSilvy, Silvy Corey Crawford: shutdown goalie. And don’t you forget it, son. @alexquigley, Alex Quigley

Blues miss their injured captain, get blanked by Crawford CHICAGO – We all can agree that hockey is a brutal game. Players skating at high speed into other players. Players using sticks like scythes on each other. Players punching each other in the face. What says “good, clean fun” more than that? In the context of all of the above – I repeat, in the context of a sport in which nasty play is the norm – were the Blackhawks better off after Brent Seabrook knocked David Backes out of Saturday’s game, as well as Monday’s and possibly beyond? The honest answer is “yes.” It doesn’t mean you have to feel good about it. It doesn’t mean you condone the kind of head shot that Seabrook put on Backes. It doesn’t mean that Seabrook and the Hawks were trying to take Backes out of the series.

It just means that when the NHL suspended Seabrook for three games after he knocked Backes senseless in Game 2, the Hawks got the better end of it. Backes is more valuable to his team than Seabrook is to his. Simple. I’ll be surprised if Backes plays in Game 4 on Wednesday night. I won’t be surprised if he’s out longer than that. A cold way of looking at things? Arctic. But it’s a sober, clear-eyed analysis of how things work in the NHL. Unless the league wants to legislate aggression out of the game, basic math will always come to the fore, as it does in this case: Hawks minus Seabrook > Blues minus Backes. The Blues looked a lot less aggressive in Game 3 than they did in the first two games. Fewer Hawks left the ice limping.

VIEWS Rick Morrissey And the result was a 2-0 Hawks victory and a series that looks a little different today than it did two days ago. You can thank Corey Crawford (34 saves). The more hard-bitten Hawks fan (or the more honest one) will wonder whether Seabrook should get an assist. Backes is the best player on St. Louis’ roster, a two-way star who has an impact on games the way Jonathan Toews does. With Backes out, Patrik Berglund saw his first action of the series. Big difference in talent. How big a difference? “What would Chicago be like

without Toews?” Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. “For us, Backes is Toews. It’s a big hole, but I think we’re more equipped to handle this than we would have been without Bergie here.” The problem with the clearheaded, Hawks-Have-the-Advantage-Now angle was the human element involved. The Blues believed Seabrook’s shoulder-to-head hit was dirty and, worse, that one or more Hawks were taunting a dazed Backes afterward. Audio from the game seems to show Hawks defenseman Duncan Keith saying, “Wakey, wakey, Backes,” as the Blues star fought to stay upright on rubbery legs. There is no way to measure how emotion affects a team, but there was little doubt that St. Louis was fired up going into Game 3. Perhaps the Blues played harder for a while with-

out their captain, but at some point, it usually comes down to talent. I happen to think the Hawks had more of it than the Blues did before the series began, and even more after the Seabrook-for-Backes swap happened. Hitchcock believes the series will come down to effort. We’ll see. “[The Hawks] know that we’re not going away easy,” he said. “If we’re not good enough at the end, that’s fine, but we’re not going away in any game. This is the level we’re going to play at. “We get Backes back in the next two or three games, we’re going to go even higher. And if that isn’t good enough, that’s not good enough.”
