WOODSTOCK – Undersheriff Andrew Zinke plans to ask for a partial recount now that the vote totals have been canvassed and certified by the county clerk. Ninety-seven votes, or less than 1 percent of those cast, separate Zinke from opponent and winner Bill of the Republican primary for McHenry Prim County sheriff, Bill Prim.

The cost for the recount is paid by Zinke, but Schultz said the $10 per precinct he or any other candidate pays doesn’t come close to covering the manpower costs to conduct the recount.

Two targeted enforcement campaigns by the Lake in the Hills Police Department resulted in 41 citations for using a cellphone while driving.

Local police departments step up enforcement of new law By JOSEPH BUSTOS In the span of two four-hour targeted enforcement campaigns earlier this year conducted by Lake in the Hills police, 41 drivers were cited for talking on cellphones while driving. “Our goal is not issuing as many citations as possible,” said Sgt.

Through the end of March, 1,368 McHenry County drivers had been issued a ticket for using an elec-

The special Lake in the Hills details that included three officers – one to observe the violations and radio to the other two officers who pulled over the offending vehicles – were initiated by the department. Holding a cellphone up to an ear creates a blindspot, Decker said, and not paying attention while operating a vehicle can easily lead to an accident where someone is killed or injured. “With the new cellphone law, ... we took the initiative to enforce it

State manager fined after misuse of time Department of Employment Security member had co-workers do his homework on the clock The ASSOCIATED PRESS SPRINGFIELD – A former Illinois Department of Employment Security manager was fined for directing his co-workers to do his college homework on taxpayer time, state reports shows. An April 3 report by Executive Inspector General Ricardo Meza said 63-year-old Clyde Redfield,

who resigned from his $71,000 job in 2012 after the allegations surfaced, instructed several subordinates to help him during their shifts with classroom assignments from Benedictine University in Lisle, where he was a part-time student from 2008 to 2010. Redfield’s attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment.


Among the pieces of homework employees told the inspector general that Redfield asked them to work on was editing a multimedia presentation on 1936 Olympic gold medalist Jesse Owens.

Amazing Sea Monkeys come to Wrigley Field When I was a kid there used to be a whole page of advertisements on the back cover of Superman comic books. You could buy everything from X-Ray Specs to Hypno-Coins to Amazing Sea Monkeys. Unfortunately, the ads never lived up to their hype. The X-Ray Specs claimed you could see people’s bones, but I couldn’t even see their underwear. The Hypno-Coin couldn’t even convince my mom to let me send in the coupon to get the free live miniature dog that fit into a teacup. And the Amazing Sea Monkeys were not astonishing swimming primates at all, but grotesque-looking aquatic crustaceans called brine shrimp. But that didn’t stop me from drooling over those ads and continuing to spend my hard-earned newspaper route money. With each issue of Superman came spectacular offers. A huge Frontier Cabin for $1. Life-sized inflatable dinosaurs for only $1. Oh, and the ad that said, “Own a Real Texas Ranch” for only $2 was a real steal, until all I received was a deed and map that showed that the ranch I owned in Tex-

JUST HUMOR ME Michael Penkava as was only one-inch square. Yee-ha! But despite my disappointment and 100 percent customer dissatisfaction, I continued to buy that junk. Why? Because somewhere deep within me, I believed. I believed the realistic illustrations and photos. I believed the sensational descriptions and outrageous claims. And I believed that a Superman comic book would never promote anything but truth, justice and the American way. Obviously, I was a victim of slick marketing. And after experience taught me its tough lessons, I swore I would never fall for those tactics again. Not! And that’s where the Chicago Cubs come in. I’ve been going to Wrigley Field since I was that comic-book-buying kid. That’s more than 50 years now. And it took me all those years to finally realize what was really happening

… it’s the Amazing Sea Monkeys all over again! And again. And again. You see, each season is like the comic book advertisement ... cool glossy photos of the product that they hope I would buy: the team. They look dazzling in their Cubbie blue pinstriped uniforms. We’re told they are the new, improved version. These guys are realistic, life-sized ballplayers. They will entertain us for hours. And they will win, win, win! This product also comes in very attractive packaging: Wrigley Field, with its ivy-covered outfield walls and giant antiquated scoreboard. Why, it even sits in the middle of a cozy, quaint neighborhood called “Wrigleyville.” And this year they have added their mascot “Clark,” who will be there to welcome you to the Friendly Confines. And that’s not all. This packaging will soon undergo a $500 million renovation, adding everything from restrooms with toilets that actually flush to additional high-priced concessions to even a huge hotel complex that is attached to the park by a walk-

way. Yep, that’ll bring in more runs. But to the typical childlike Cubs fan, all we want to do is clip out the coupon, send in our money and wait every day at the mailbox until our dreams arrive. But once we get beyond the spiffy packaging and actually see the product, we realize that, once again, we’ve been duped. We try our best to enjoy the product we bought, but, in the end, it goes into the pile with the X-Ray Specs and the Hypno-Coins and the deed to the oneinch square Texas ranch. Now, I’m not saying that we should give up on the Cubs. We simply need to rejoice more in the packaging and radically reduce our expectations for the product. Nevertheless, for us real die-hard fans, I guess we’ll have to just keep on believing in the Amazing Sea Monkeys.

By KIM GAMEL The Associated Press KABUL, Afghanistan – An Afghan police commander opened fire Friday on two Associated Press journalists, killing Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Anja Niedringhaus and wounding veteran correspondent Kathy Gannon – the first known case of a security insider attacking journalists in Afghanistan. The shooting was part of a surge in violence targeting foreigners in the run-up to Saturday’s presidential elections,

a pivotal moment in Afghanistan’s troubled recent history that promises to be the nation’s first democratic transfer of power. Niedringhaus, 48, who had covered conflict zones from the Balkans in the 1990s to Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan, died instantly of her wounds. Gannon, 60, who for many years was the news organization’s Afghanistan bureau chief and currently is a special correspondent for the region, was shot three times in the wrists and shoulder. After surgery, she was in stable condition and

spoke to medical personnel before being flown to Kabul. Niedringhaus and Gannon had worked together repeatedly in Afghanistan since the 2001 U.S.-led invasion, covering the conflict from some of the most dangerous hotspots of the Taliban insurgency. They often focused on the war’s impact on Afghan civilians, and they embedded several times with the Afghan police and military, reporting on the Afghan government’s determination to build up its often ill-equipped forces to face the fight against militants.

Gannon, who had sources inside the Taliban leadership, was one of the few Western reporters allowed into Afghanistan during the militant group’s rule in the 1990s. The journalists were traveling in a convoy of election workers delivering ballots in the eastern city of Khost, under the protection of Afghan security forces. They were in their own car with a translator and an AP Television News freelancer waiting for the convoy to move after arriving at the heavily guarded security forces base in eastern Afghanistan.

Agency aims to alter coal defender image Reforms expected to improve relationship between DNR, public By JIM SUHR The Associated Press

A Chicago public-transit train rests on an escalator March 24 after it jumped the tracks at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport station. Chicago transit officials said the train operator who acknowledged dozing off before the crash was fired Friday.

CTA fires driver after crash Train operator admits falling asleep before O’Hare wreck The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO — Chicago transit officials have fired a train operator who acknowledged dozing off before crashing a commuter train at the O’Hare International Airport station. The March 24 crash injured more than 30 passengers and sent the eight-car train barreling over the platform and up an escalator leading into the airport. It caused millions of dollars’ worth of damage. The operator was fired Friday, said Chicago Transit Authority spokesman Brian Steele. A federal investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board said last week that the driver told him she

“Even though we don’t know what role fatigue played ... we took a comprehensive look at our scheduling and have opted to make these changes proactively.” Brian Steele Chicago Transit Authority spokesman dozed off before the crash and had done so on another occasion in February when she overshot a station platform. She had been operating trains for only two months and was an extra-board employee, meaning she filled in for other drivers who called in sick or were on vacation. Her union says she worked a lot of overtime and was ex-

hausted. The CTA says it does not believe her work schedule played a role, but it announced changes Friday that it says will make its scheduling guidelines some of the most stringent among the nation’s large transit operations. “Even though we don’t know what role fatigue played ... we took a comprehensive

Republican Rauner’s ad features Democrat wife

Video search warrant bill advances in Legislature

CHICAGO – Gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner is using a new television ad also featuring his wife to portray himself as a Republican who can work with Democrats. The spot released Thursday shows lighthearted banter Bruce between the Rauner Winnetka businessman and his wife Diana, who’s a Democrat. In it, she said she’ll vote for her Republican husband because he’ll “take on both parties to fix Illinois.” The personal approach differs from ads that ran ahead of the March primary where Rauner vowed to “shake up Springfield.” Gov. Pat Quinn is seeking re-election. His campaign on Thursday launched “Rauner Watch,” a website tracking the number of days that have passed without Rauner presenting a proposed spending plan. Quinn’s first ad focused on Rauner’s evolving stance on the minimum wage, which Quinn wants to increase.

SPRINGFIELD – Legislation that would allow law enforcement officials to obtain a search warrant through a video conference is advancing in the Illinois Legislature. The change to the state’s criminal code is sponsored by state Rep. Mike Zalewski. The Riverside Democrat’s proposal would allow search warrants to be obtained from a judge in terrorism cases during a video conference when the requesting prosecutor can’t be present in a courtroom. Current law only allows search warrants to be obtained in such cases by oral testimony, which can include requests via telephone or fax. Supporters say the measure is a practical one in a digital age. The measure passed the House 107-1. It now heads to the state Senate. The bill is HB4594.

management exodus and keep salaries competitive in the industry. CEO Don Orseno said Thursday an analysis of other transit markets indicated Metra salaries were lagging. He added several supervisors went without raises in recent years while union members received pay hikes. Metra officials told the Chicago Sun-Times the agency lost four top information technology people in recent weeks. They note because some managers were paid less than those they supervise there was little incentive for unionized workers to seek management posts. Metra became embroiled in scandal last year when the previous CEO said he was forced out for resisting political pressure in hiring and contract decisions.

look at our scheduling and have opted to make these changes proactively,” Steele explained. The new rules limit train operators to a maximum of 12 hours of driving duty, including break times. The agency has also increased off-duty time between shifts to at least 10 hours, instead of eight, and now requires one day off in a seven-day period. Operators with less than a year of experience will have their weekly hours limited to 32. Besides the possibility of driver fatigue, the NTSB is also investigating the failure of an automatic, emergency braking system to stop the train before it struck the platform.

Federal government posts jobs for Thomson prison THOMSON – The federal Bureau of Prisons is hiring more than a dozen workers for the Thomson Correctional Center in northwestern Illinois. The Quad City Times reported that 15 positions have been

posted on, the federal government jobs website. The positions including a budget and technology officer, an IT specialist and correctional supervisors, with salary ranges of $49,520 to $107,434 a year. The federal agency has allocated nearly $54 million to begin reopening the maximum-security penitentiary that’s about 40 miles north of Moline. About $10 million will be used to renovate the facility, which was a state prison that never fully opened because of budget constraints. The additional $43.7 million will be used for staffing and equipment. Illinois built Thomson prison in 2001, but budget troubles kept it from fully opening. Its 1,600 cells housed fewer than 200 inmates before it was closed in preparation for a sale. The last inmates were moved out in 2010. The federal government bought it for $165 million in 2012. When the prison opens as a federal facility, it is expected to employ about 1,000 people and have an economic impact on Whiteside, Lee and Ogle counties.

ST. LOUIS – The Illinois Department of Natural Resources, often criticized as advocating for the coal industry, announced a series of reforms this week meant to help repair the agency’s image and make it more responsive to the public. The changes – from closer inspection of coal-ash ponds to better communication with the public to strengthening ethics rules – underscore the daunting task of balancing environmentalists’ concerns about an energy source they view with disfavor and fairly treating coal producers in a state that’s among the nation’s richest in energy reserves. But they also come as the agency deals with other embarrassing missteps, including a department administrator’s departure after reports he attended professional fishing tournaments while on sick leave and revelations that two mine-safety regulators accepted political contributions from a coal-mine operator. Last week, The Associated Press reported another official had to repay $7,200 that he overcharged the state for mileage. Neither environmentalists nor the industry believe the reforms are tied to Gov. Pat Quinn’s re-election bid against a well-funded Republican opponent. But the timing doesn’t hurt him, either,

said David Yepsen of Southern Illinois University’s Paul Simon Public Policy Institute. “Pat Quinn came into office as a reformer, so any hint of problems undermines his public image. So it’s good they’re to trying to clean up their act,” said Yepsen, who credited Quinn’ with recognizing “the DNR clearly has problems.” Still, “it’s a long way to the November election, and it’s important that Quinn and his administration get back on track and get this issue off the table.” Quinn’s office, in a statement Friday to the AP, said the governor “is pleased with the new and important steps being taken to strengthen accountability and transparency at the agency ... (and) believes it’s important to constantly review and improve agency operations and always act promptly to take immediate and appropriate action whenever issues arise.” Environmentalists and community activists welcomed the changes, some of which were prompted by a lawsuit that Attorney General Lisa Madigan filed against the DNR after it approved a surface mine near the tiny Fulton County village of Banner in 2007, despite complaints from residents about potential threats to their water supply. The DNR ultimately rejected the permit in 2012. The DNR now will notify the public when it first receives coal-mining applications, require early environmental review and require applicants to participate in public hearings.

O’Hare unveils overhaul of international terminal Project includes new spa, deli, duty-free store The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Chicago unveiled a $26 million overhaul of O’Hare Airport’s international terminal on Friday, showing off two dozen new high-end dining and shopping options. It’s the first redevelopment since Terminal 5’s construction in 1993 and features sleek interior design upgrades that give parts of the terminal the feel of a comfy lounge or trendy nightclub. Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Friday that the redesign, which includes local brands, does a better job of representing Chicago to those who pass through the airport, the second busiest in the country. “Terminal 5 reflects our city’s distinct style and spirit, placing Chicago at the center of the global tourism conversation,” Emanuel said. Among new offerings are a spa, a local gourmet deli called The Goddess & Grocer and a restaurant overseen by celebrity chef Rick Bayless. Coming soon are an Emporio Armani and a Michael Kors shop. Airports around the country are in competition over such amenities in hopes of

attracting passengers, especially those in transit who can be tempted to spend money while on a layover. At O’Hare, the need was especially acute. Even Aviation Commissioner Rosemarie Andolino has called the old Terminal 5 an embarrassment. It was designed with grand spaces, but after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, some of those areas were filled with expanded security checkpoints, leaving passengers with few options for eating and shopping once they passed the screening lines. The renovated interior transformed the food court into a dining lounge with performance kitchens. New design elements include detail touches like wood paneled walls, intricate tile patterns and stylish lighting. There is also a new 10,000-square-foot duty-free store that will offer luxury brands representing downtown Chicago’s Magnificent Mile shopping district. Even before its full completion, departing passengers last year spent an average of $18.99 in Terminal 5’s shops and restaurants, the highest it’s ever been.

Gunman had argument with other soldiers Subject of argument that may have caused Fort Hood soldier to open fire not released By DANICA COTO and WILL WEISSERT The Associated Press FORT HOOD, Texas – The Fort Hood soldier who gunned down three other military men before killing himself had an argument with colleagues in his unit before opening fire, and investigators believe his mental condi- Ivan tion was not the Lopez “direct precipitating factor” in the shooting, authorities said Friday. The base’s commander, Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, offered those details a day after saying that Spc. Ivan Lopez’s mental condition appeared to be an underlying factor in the attack. On Friday, Milley said that an “escalating argument” precipitated the assault. He declined to discuss the cause of the argument but said investigators believe Lopez made no effort to target specific soldiers – even though at least one of the soldiers shot was involved in the dispute. Milley would not say

Lt. Gen. Mark Milley (left) and U.S. Sen. John Cornyn talk to the media Thursday near Fort Hood’s main gate in Fort Hood, Texas. A soldier opened fire Wednesday on fellow service members at the Fort Hood military base, killing three people and wounding 16 before committing suicide. whether those involved were among the dead or wounded, or how many shooting victims had been a part of the argument. “There was no premeditated targeting of an individual,”

he said. Chris Grey, a spokesman for the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command based in Quantico, Va., said the military has not established a “concrete motive.”

And because Lopez is dead, he added, “the possibility does exist that we may never know why the alleged shooter did what he did.” The crime scene encompasses two city blocks, Grey said.

to remain married.” Black said he’ll issue the ruling April 14.

Rep. Jeff Denham said Friday he would press for a vote on his legislation, known as the ENLIST Act, either as a free-standing bill or as an addition to the defense authorization measure that the House will consider in May. The Californian from a competitive, increasingly Hispanic district is one of a handful of GOP proponents of reform whose hopes for a vote have been quashed this election year. “This is a way to improve our

Lopez initially began firing near an intersection, then traveled to several nearby buildings, went inside and kept firing. While driving to those locations in his vehicle, he fired indiscriminately at other soldiers, Grey said. Grey also confirmed for the first time that the military police officer who confronted Lopez exchanged words with him before firing a single round at him that apparently missed. That’s when the gunman put his .45-caliber semi-automatic pistol against his head and pulled the trigger one last time. Authorities have interviewed more than 900 people in their investigation, Grey said. Also Friday, Lopez’s father said his son had struggled with the recent deaths of his mother and grandfather and the stress of being transferred to a new base. Lopez’s father, who shares the same name, said his son was receiving medical treatment but was a peaceful family man and a hard worker. “This is very painful for me,” the elder Lopez said in the statement issued from his native Puerto Rico. He

called for prayers for the dead and the 16 people who were wounded in the rampage. “My son could not have been in his right mind,” Lopez said. “He was not like that.” Wednesday’s attack was the second at the base since 2009, when 13 people were killed by Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan, who had said he was angry about being deployed to Afghanistan and wanted to protect Islamic and Taliban leaders from U.S. troops. Lopez, an Army truck driver, did a short stint in Iraq in 2011 and told medical personnel he had suffered a traumatic brain injury. The 34-year-old was undergoing treatment for depression and anxiety while being evaluated for post-traumatic stress disorder, base officials said. But officials said Lopez did not see any combat in Iraq and had not previously demonstrated a risk of violence. He seemed to have a clean record that showed no ties to potential terrorists. Lopez had arrived at Fort Hood in February from Fort Bliss, another Texas base near the Mexico border.

Hunt is on for Flight 370 ‘black boxes’ By NICK PERRY

Kerry: It’s ‘reality check’ time for Mideast talks

The Associated Press PERTH, Australia – Planes, ships and two submersible sound locators were deployed Saturday to again scour a remote patch of the Indian Ocean in the increasingly urgent hunt for the Malaysia Airlines jet that vanished four weeks ago. A multinational team is desperately trying to find debris floating in the water or faint sound signals from the plane’s flight recorders that could lead them to the aircraft and help unravel the mystery of its fate. Beacons in the black boxes emit “pings” so they can be more easily found, but the batteries only last about a month. And officials say that the more time that passes before any floating wreckage is found, the harder it will be to find the plane itself. So far, there’s been no sign of the Boeing 777. The recorders could help investigators determine why Flight 370, which disappeared March 8 while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people aboard, veered so far offcourse. Two ships with sophisticated equipment that can hear the recorders’ pings were deployed for the first time on Friday along a 150mile route investigators hope may be close to the spot where they believe the plane went down. Those ships, the Australian navy’s Ocean Shield and the British HMS Echo, were returning to the search area on Saturday, along with up to 13 military and civilian planes and nine other ships, the agency coordinating the search said. Weather conditions in the area, which have regularly hampered crews trying to spot debris, were fair with some rain expected, the Joint Agency Coordination Centre said. Because the U.S. Navy’s pinger locator can pick up signals to a depth of 20,000 feet, it should be able to hear the plane’s data recorders even if they are in the deepest part of the search zone –

about 19,000 feet. But that’s only if the locator gets within range of the black boxes – a tough task, given the size of the search area and the fact that the pinger locator must be dragged slowly through the water at just 1 to 6 mph. Officials said there was no specific information that led to the underwater devices being used for the first time on Friday, but that they were brought into the effort because there was nothing to lose.

Australian Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, head of the joint agency coordinating the operation, acknowledged the search area was essentially a best guess, and noted the time when the plane’s locator beacons would shut down was “getting pretty close.” Finding floating wreckage is key to narrowing the search area, as officials can then use data on currents to try to backtrack to where the plane hit the water, and

where the flight recorders may be. The overall search area is a 84,000-square-mile zone in the southern Indian Ocean, about 1,100 miles northwest of the western Australian city of Perth. The search area has shifted each day as investigators continue to analyze what little radar and satellite data is available while factoring in where any debris may have drifted. Australia is coordinating the ocean search, and the investigation into the plane’s disappearance is Malaysia’s responsibility. Australia, the U.S., Britain and China have all agreed to be “accredited representatives” of the investigation. Meanwhile, the Air Line Pilots Association, a union that represents 30,000 pilots in North America, said in a statement that the Malaysia Airlines tragedy should lead to higher standards of plane tracking technology being adopted by the airline industry.

WASHINGTON – With Mideast peace talks on the verge of collapse, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry declared Friday that “it’s reality check time” on whether an agreement can be reached anytime soon after decades John of bitterness Kerry between Israeli and Palestinian leaders. The U.S. will re-evaluate its role as mediator, he said. It was Kerry’s most pessimistic take yet on the peace effort after nearly nine months of frustrating talks with little progress to show. Kerry made clear that his push for peace is not yet over, and he said both sides claim to want to continue negotiating. But he also said that continuing setbacks in the process – culminating this week with tit-for-tat moves by Israeli and Palestinian officials that have upended good-faith bargaining – could force the U.S. to shift focus to other crises where Washington might have more success. “We have an enormous amount on the plate,” Kerry told reporters during a diplomatic visit to Rabat, Morocco, the end of a marathon trip that saw him jumping back and forth between Israel, Ramallah and Europe. He noted that the U.S. is also dealing with challenges in Ukraine, Iran and Syria, and he said, “There are limits to the amount of time and effort the United States can spend if the parties themselves are unwilling to take constructive steps in order to be able to move forward.” The nine months of talks are scheduled to end April 29, and Kerry has been pressing to have them continue through much of the rest of the year. “But we’re not going to sit here indefinitely,” he said. “So it’s reality check time, and we intend to evaluate precisely what the next steps will be.”

“We have an enormous amount on the plate. There are limits to the amount of time and effort the United States can spend if the parties themselves are unwilling to take constructive steps in order to be able to move forward.” John Kerry U.S. Secretary of State White House spokesman Josh Earnest said he “would anticipate that a conversation with the president is in the near future.” Kerry has spent major portions of his 14 months as secretary of state pursuing an Israeli-Palestinian agreement despite the seemingly long odds. A collapse of the talks could be a diplomatic embarrassment for him and the administration – and a danger in the region as well. Failed efforts in the past have led to major bouts of violence. On Friday, Palestinians fired rockets at Israel, which responded with warplanes attacking military targets in the Gaza Strip. Uzi Rabi, director of Middle Eastern Studies at Tel Aviv University, said it’s doubtful the two sides will broker a final peace agreement, given years of bitterness and sharp differences over borders, claims to Jerusalem and recognition of Israel as a Jewish state. But he said the talks should continue – if only to ward off a new Palestinian uprising against Israelis that would surely lead to a surge in violence. “I think the Americans know that” the talks ultimately will fail, Rabi said. “So why are they going on? Because it’s much better to talk than something which is much more problematic, like intifada.” Intifada is the Arabic term for past Palestinian uprisings against Israel.

About 175 citations issued since January in CL Ethics commission issued • CRACKDOWN Continued from page A1 as diligently as possible,” Decker said. Motorists who are charged with driving while talking with a hand-held cellphone can pay $120 without going to court to challenge it. However, if a driver does go to court, the judge can fine the driver up to $75 for the first offense and assess court costs, bringing the total bill for the phone call up to about $300, the circuit clerk’s office said. So far, through the end of March, 785 tickets for using an electronic device have been disposed of, including 702 of which were paid before a court date. The remaining 83 went to court, according to the circuit clerk’s office. In Crystal Lake, there have been about 175 citations since January for people who have violated the state’s electronic communication device law, said Commander of Support Services Dan Dziewior. Even when the law was less

restrictive from 2011 through 2013, Crystal Lake issued 417 citations. Sgt. Jeff Sutrick is the traffic unit supervisor for the village of Algonquin. In April, Algonquin is recognizing distracted driving month to encourage people to avoid distractions such as using a cellphone while driving, texting while driving, or even eating while driving while behind the wheel. The department plans to publish information on the village website and use social media to communicate about the dangers of distracted driving. Algonquin has written, through mid-March, 91 citations and 29 warnings to people for using a cellphone while driving, Sutrick said. Sutrick said he believes ac-

cidents caused by someone on a cellphone are under-reported, and it’s usually a witness who says a driver was on a cellphone. In 2013, there were 61 car accidents where a distraction was listed as a contributing cause. Of those accidents 48 were by a distraction inside vehicle, one was by a distraction by another electronic device, two were for texting and 10 were from a cellphone. Sutrick said when he is off duty, he still sees people talking on their cellphones while driving. “Some people are making an attempt to abide by the law, and using bluetooth and taking those precautions,” Sutrick said. “When I’m not in my squad [car] and just driving down the road, I always see a lot of people still

on cellphones and still texting and driving.” He said drivers need to be educated about the danger and hazards of distracted driving. “I think they’re aware of it, but just choose to ignore it,” Sutrick said. “When stopped, most people admit ‘I know I’m not suppose to be on my phone.’ ” McHenry has not conducted any special enforcements, but the department would consider it, said Deputy Chief John Birk. “We do not have any plans to form a specialized effort as of yet, but that could change as we are now entering our busy road construction season with alternate traffic patterns and construction crews,” Birk said in an email. So far, McHenry has issued 149 tickets and 152 warnings for talking on a cellphone while driving through April 2. “Our goal is to deter cellphone use and provide for safe roadways of which we have issued both warnings and tickets to accomplish this,” Birk said.

• MANAGER Continued from page A1 Department officials said Redfield initially denied the allegations during the investigation, but the inspector general ultimately found Redfield’s subordinates’ statements “more credible than his bald denials.” After finding him in vi-

olation of the state’s ethics act and the department’s standard procedures, state’s Executive Ethics Commission issued Redfield a fine of $2,500. Redfield, of Harvey, had been previously cited for doing personal work on state time and falsifying timekeeping records on the job, and was forced to attend counseling by the department in 2008.

Prim slated to face attorney Jim Harrison in general election • RECOUNT Continued from page A1 Only 16.9 percent of McHenry County’s registered voters showed up March 18 for the primary election. Prim will face a general election challenge from Woodstock-based attorney Jim Harrison, assuming Harrison collects enough signa-

tures to be on the ballot. Harrison has indicated he is not dropping out of the race. He needs more than 6,000 signatures to be on the ballot as an independent candidate. After certifying, the outcome of other close races – including two County Board seats – didn’t change. Nancy Gonsiorek lost in District 3 by 30 votes, and District 6’s Ersel Schuster lost by 61 votes.

Progress at YMCA looks like winner The Northwest Herald Editorial Board offers this week’s thumbs up and thumbs down: Thumbs up: To the Sage YMCA and Sage Chairman and CEO Vince Foglia for all of the progress made toward the $18.2 million improvements to the facility. When completed late this year, it’s expected to be one of the finest YMCA facilities in the country. McHenry County is fortunate to have some excellent health club facilities, and the renovation of the family-friendly YMCA will be a great complement and a valuable resource for Crystal Lake and the county. Thumbs down: To the IHSA, which continues to maintain the contracts it makes regarding public high school athletic events, down to the ball used, should not be public information. The IHSA has not responded to inquiries regarding HR 895, which aims to – among other things – make those contracts public information and open back up public high school sports playoff webcasts to all. IHSA media relations liaison Matt Troha posted his personal response publicly on Twitter on Friday morning, calling it a “potential state takeover” and questioning state Rep. Linda Chapa LaVia’s motives. He also said that the pay-per-view money made on playoff events goes to the school and the provider, without acknowledging that the IHSA makes its money off a contract with the webcast provider, which is the only reason those royalties are split as such. The House resolution’s motive, transparency, is simple and necessary. Thumbs up: To Landmarks Illinois for making Camp Algonquin one of the most endangered historical places in the state. Although we don’t like that it’s gotten to this point, Camp Algonquin’s inclusion on the list could help lead a revival to a century-old Fox River destination, if the community wants to support it. Thumbs down: To a proposal to raise the state’s gas tax to help fund road construction projects. Illinois residents already pay some of the highest gasoline prices in the country and are overtaxed. Now the Transportation for Illinois Coalition is proposing a 4-cent increase in the gas tax and higher vehicle registration fees. Again, Illinois doesn’t have a revenue problem. It has a spending problem.


A Supreme challenge The Supreme Court on Wednesday overturned yet another federal law meant to check corruption and influence peddling in national politics. The ruling shows two things: The Roberts Court’s destructive view on these matters wasn’t changed by the backlash to its Citizens United holding, and Congress must respond by designing new rules that can pass the court’s overly skeptical review. If lawmakers tackle the issue forthrightly, they have some workable options. The court eliminated an overall limit on how much donors could give to candidates, parties and various other committees over the course of an election cycle. The idea had been to make it harder for big donors to circumvent limits on direct donations to candidates by siphoning them through other channels, or for political leaders to ask for large checks from wealthy individuals. In the plurality opinion in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. held that the overall donation ceiling is an unconstitutional infringement on free speech because the government can regulate political giving only in order to prevent “quid pro quo corruption,” which is something like direct bribery. The chief justice insisted that combating the purchase of political influence and access is not a sufficiently worthwhile goal. Elsewhere, and without really owning up to it, he overturned a previous court holding in Buckley v. Valeo, the controlling precedent on the constitutionality of campaign finance limits. So much for the judicial restraint that Justice Roberts once promised. That sort of purposeful judicial behavior worries us more than the practical results of its application in this ruling. Before Wednesday, the country already had to conduct its political affairs in a system damaged by Roberts Court decisions and by the holes in the campaign-finance system that predated it. Individuals, corporations and unions could spend vast amounts of money to manipulate federal elections, sometimes secretly, under fig-leaf restrictions that hardly reduce the potential for corruption or the appearance of it. There is one particularly productive response to the Roberts Court that lawmakers should be able to enact immediately: requiring more prompt reporting about where political cash is coming from and where it is going.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Need burial for GOP To the Editor: Only in the Republican wasteland called Illinois can a sitting Republican senator, in this case called Kirk, state that he is not going to campaign for the Republican nominee for the seat now held by the Democrat, Dick Durbin. Kirk said he didn’t want to make his Democratic fellow senator mad and that it would cause political jihad. Durbin, who couldn’t believe his good fortune, thanked Kirk publicly, which should have been Kirk’s first clue that he messed up. Kirk would have to become more Republican to attain the status of a RINO. In most other, maybe all other states, Kirk would be called out by someone in the Republican Party, but not in the wasteland where everyone seems happy with one-party rule and the old-guard Republicans just want to go along and get along. Maybe the reason no one is calling him out is because we really don’t have any real Republican leaders in this state. The old-guard

Republicans and the RINOs are afraid the up-and-coming Republicans are going to kill the GOP in Illinois. I say, the Republican Party is already dead in Illinois, and we should give it a proper burial. The sooner, the better. Thomas Powell

Road to socialism To the Editor: If the front page of my local paper doesn’t say we are on the verge of living in a socialist state, then nothing does. Doctors opting to align with hospital run care, and now a manager is supplied by the hospital to address administrative issues. You are now just a number to the doctor. Illinois lawmakers push for state-run retirement savings plans. They’ve done a great job managing money so far. New York town awaits a ruling on a moment of prayer because its predominantly Christian based.

There are at least six other articles just in the first section that seems to be paving the road to full-blown socialism. Dave Marsh Johnsburg

Diaper Bank moves To the Editor: Many thanks to all who helped the St. Paul Diaper Bank move diapers and shelving to our new location, 3705 W. Elm St., McHenry. Forty people showed up on a rainy morning and completed our move in less than two hours. It was fantastic. The Diaper Bank aims to collect

and distribute 300,000 diapers this year from the rear entrance of the Eckel’s Flea Market in McHenry. Remember, we distribute diapers to infants and children of low-income families, the disabled, the elderly and the sick. We distribute diapers to most of the food pantries in our county, as well as organizations that work with children and senior citizens. We collect our diapers through donations and diaper drives. We are grateful for all who help us accomplish the task at hand. Contact us at P.O. Box 2014, McHenry. The Rev. Phyllis Mueller Director, St Paul Diaper Bank

Better economy a better way forward for Illinois In his recent budget address, instead of focusing on streamlining government and reducing the tax burden on hardworking families and Illinois businesses, Gov. Pat Quinn proposed doubling down on the very same policies that helped create the budget mess in which our state is now stuck. Illinois’ stagnant economic recovery can be traced directly to the passage of the 2011 income tax increase. Our state’s unemployment rate is nearly 33 percent higher than the national average. We have the lowest credit rating of any state in the nation, and Illinois’ publicsector pension systems are the worst funded in the U.S. While other states have reduced spending and rejected tax increases, the governor’s proposed extension of current income tax rates is simply the wrong policy to address the economic challenges that our state faces. Illinois suffers from a lack of economic activity, and this ailment has a simple remedy: get the government out of the way. By leaving more in the pockets of taxpayers, we will purchase

GUEST VIEW Jack Franks more goods and services from businesses that, in response to the increased demand, will hire more workers, who will then pay taxes. Growing the economy is the best way to increase government revenue, and the simplest way this can be achieved is to allow the current income tax rates to expire, as promised in 2011. Reforming the relationship between citizens and local governments is no less vital to igniting the recovery for which all Illinoisans have been waiting for far too long. Rather than providing a property tax credit for some at the expense of others, as the governor proposed, the tax burden on all property owners in Illinois can be reduced easily and equitably. When anyone in Illinois looks at their property tax bill, we are likely confronted with a list of local taxing bodies that is longer than a similar bill in any other state. According to the most


recent count, Illinois has 6,968 units of local government. Texas has more than twice our state’s population, yet manages to deliver the services its residents need with 2,000 fewer government bodies. This is the primary reason that property tax rates in Illinois are second only to New Jersey and that, on average from 20052009, six of the 40 counties with the highest property taxes in the U.S. were in Illinois, one being McHenry County. As chairman of the Local Government Consolidation Commission, which recently issued its final report, I have done exhaustive research on this issue and am convinced that elimination or consolidation of nonessential and duplicative taxing authorities will reduce property taxes in our state. To provide this relief to overburdened taxpayers, I recently passed legislation that places a four-year moratorium on the authority of the state to create new layers of local government. I also am fighting to pass bills that increase the power of counties to combine or eliminate unnecessary government bodies

and grant many local taxing bodies the authority to dissolve. While the latter might seem to be an obvious measure that already should be law, it is not. Most governments rarely plan on going out of business, and jealously protects their fiefdoms. The English philosopher Thomas Hobbes believed that the authority of any government is merely on loan from the people it serves. The policies proposed in the governor’s recent address largely ignore this basic principle and wrongly demand increased sacrifice from Illinoisans already overburdened by state and local taxes. The argument in favor of extending the 2011 tax increase, as well as maintaining many obsolete, unnecessary taxing bodies, is that we cannot afford to make drastic changes during tough economic times. In reality, we cannot afford not to, and we have three years of completely inadequate economic recovery to prove it. • Jack Franks, a Marengo Democrat, represents Illinois’ 63rd State Representative District.

WOMAN HURT AFTER CAR HIT BY TRUCK LAKEWOOD – A 29-year-old Marengo woman was taken to Centegra Hospital – Woodstock after her car was struck Friday by a semitrailer at the north intersection of Routes 47 and 176. Monica Whitney was driving a Nissan at 1:23 p.m. north on Route 47 when she tried to turn left onto Route 176 in front of a southbound semitrailer, said Lakewood Police Chief Lawrence Howell. Kevin T. Jackson, 39, of North Aurora, who was driving the semitrailer, struck Whitney’s vehicle, Howell said. The Nissan was pushed into a pole, which only sustained minor damage, Howell said. Whitney was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, and has been treated and released, according to Centegra. Howell said the crash is still under investigation, but citations against Whitney are pending.

MCCD trustees OK budget Proposal contains numerous cuts, still needs County Board approval By EMILY K. COLEMAN WOODSTOCK – A bill that would give the McHenry County Conservation District a way to bring in more revenue made its way out of committee Thursday, the same day its Board of Trustees unanimously approved a

budget riddled with cuts. The budget, which is for the fiscal year that started Tuesday and still needs County Board approval, is designed to address looming revenue shortages. The conservation district is expected to lose an estimated $2 million in property tax revenue over the next

five years as declining property values lower the maximum the district is allowed to levy for its general fund. The approved budget is based on the assumption that the district will hit its levy cap this fiscal year based on projections that the county’s estimated assessed value will fall another 8 per-

cent, meaning the district would bring in $72,000 less in property taxes. Total revenues are estimated to fall by $315,000, or by about 3.5 percent, according to the draft budget. While the proposed budget carries a deficit of about $420,000, it also proposes changes to employee com-

pensation, fewer capital improvements and the elimination of programs, including the popular Trail of History event at Glacial Park. A bill making its way through the Illinois Senate would give the conservation district a way of raising its

Kyle Grillot –

First Institute Training & Management instructor Mike Peabody sets up a weld inside the mobile welding lab Friday in Crystal Lake. The training program aims to close a gap in the need for skilled welders by offering an option to train employees and students without taking away from production. Half of the mobile truck is a classroom and the other half contains welding machines capable of performing four basic types of welding.

Program seeks to address need for qualified manufacturing workers By JEFF ENGELHARDT CRYSTAL LAKE – Kurt Beier believes his weldingon-wheels could be just the beginning of a manufacturing rebirth in America. Beier, executive director for First Institute Training & Management, has heard manufacturers’ concerns with the lack of skilled workers to replace longtime employees and has found a solution. Beier is bringing the train-

“People hear manufacturing and think it’s a dead-end job, but it’s not at all. Businesses have a shortage right now. The average age of these skilled manufacturing workers is about 60 years old and the high schools aren’t teaching industrial arts anymore.” Kurt Beier Executive director for First Institute Training & Management ing to the people, creating a trailer with four welding stations and an eight-person

classroom section to offer companies and individuals an opportunity to earn Amer-

ican Welding Society certification within a month. “People hear manufacturing and think it’s a deadend job, but it’s not at all,” Beier said. “Businesses have a shortage right now. The average age of these skilled manufacturing workers is about 60 years old and the high schools aren’t teaching industrial arts anymore.” The traveling welding laboratory made a stop at Knaack LLC in Crystal Lake on Friday to showcase its of-

Tax bill clears Ill. House Measure calls for 1-year freeze on township levies By KEVIN P. CRAVER SPRINGFIELD – A oneyear freeze on township tax levies has cleared the Illinois House. House Bill 5311, sponsored by Rep. David McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills, passed Thursday on a 66-43 vote. The bill, now headed to the Senate, seeks a 2015 freeze of the general fund levy for townships with fewer than 100,000 people and are subject to the tax cap.

All 17 of McHenry County’s townships fall into that category. The bill does not freeze township levies for roads or general assistance. McSweeney said he is pleased that the bill to help “address the outrageous increases in property tax bills throughout Illinois” cleared the House. “With Democrats focused on raising income taxes, every bit of tax relief we can provide is crucial,” he said. “There’s a repeated assault happening on the Illinois taxpayer. We’re fighting this war on all fronts, and these victories are rare, but imperative.” McSweeney referred to the push by Gov. Pat Quinn and leading House and Senate

Democrats to make the temporary 67 percent income tax increase that is scheduled to start expiring Jan. 1 permanent. In exchange, Quinn in his budget address last month proposed giving every Illinois homeowner an annual $500 property tax rebate. Voting yes among local House members were Reps. Barbara Wheeler, R-Crystal Lake, and Jack Franks, D-Marengo, who also was the bill’s chief co-sponsor. Members Mike Tryon, R-Crystal Lake, and Tim Schmitz, R-Batavia, were absent for the vote. The bill passed over the objections of the lobbying group

Victim identified in fatal accident By JIM DALLKE HUNTLEY – A woman was killed in a single-vehicle accident near Huntley early Thursday evening, according to the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office. Cynthia L. Pauza, 41, struck a tree on Church Road between Route 20 and Seeman Road in unincorporated Coral Township, McHenry County Undersheriff Andrew Zinke said. Around 5 p.m., Pauza’s 2006 Chrysler 300 left the roadway for an unknown reason. The vehicle crossed over a driveway and hit two trees, according to a McHenry County Sheriff’s Office news re-

lease. The vehicle split in half upon crashing into the tree. Pauza was pronounced dead at the scene. Pauza, who was wearing a seat belt, lived on Church Road near the scene of the accident, Zinke said. She was the only person in the car. The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating the accident. The cause of death is multiple blunt force injuries due to the crash, according to a preliminary report from the McHenry County Coroner’s Office. As a routine matter in such a crash, a toxicology report will be prepared, but the results were not available Friday.

Library board appoints Rockford librarian chief Petting zoo owner By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO HUNTLEY – A library executive director who oversaw two expansion projects during his past eight years at the Rockford Public Library was recently selected to lead the Huntley Area Public Library. Frank Novak will begin his new job as executive director of the Huntley library April 21. The library board selected him last week from a pool of three other finalists, library spokesperson Doug Cataldo told the Northwest Herald. Novak replaces former

director Patrick McDonald, who left Huntley in December to become chief operating officer of a private education group near Chicago. Two department heads served as interim directors during the board’s four-month search. “[Novak] was very responsible in managing multiple library systems and instrumental in completing multimillion dollar projects to build new library buildings without any referendums or property tax increases,” Cataldo said. Novak has led the Rockford Public Library since 2005 in servicing the city’s 150,000-plus residents. The li-


Algonquin man involved in retention pond crash dies By JOSEPH BUSTOS ALGONQUIN – A man who drove into a storm water retention pond at the Algonquin Commons has died, a hospital official said. Paul Mellor, 56, of Algonquin, was driving about 10:55 a.m. Wednesday at the Algonquin Commons when his Honda went over a parking lot curb, crossed the grassy area and went into the 6-foot pond near Biaggi’s Italian Restaurant. Algonquin-Lake in the Hills firefighters were able to break a sun roof and cut Mellor’s seat belt to rescue him. He was taken to Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin where he died Friday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

He had been in critical condition. The hospital couldn’t comment further. Algonquin Deputy Police Chief Steve Kuzynowski said Friday the incident is still under investigation. He had said earlier this week that the police department hoped to speak to Mellor to find out what happened when he drove into the pond. Mellor was the only person in the car. Immediately after the crash, the Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Department had to call in extra help from Carpentersville, Crystal Lake, Huntley, Fox River Grove, Woodstock, Wauconda, Lake Zurich, Nunda Rural, Cary, McHenry Township, Lakewood and Wonder Lake to help with the recovery of the car.

brary system manages seven facilities. Novak expanded the library by creating its East Branch and helped officials acquire the Nordlof Center, a multi-use venue for Rockford’s performing arts and technology community. He also survived an overwhelming vote of no confidence by the Rockford library’s 31 union workers in 2012. The Rockford library board stood by Novak, while the workers expressed unhappiness with his leadership, according to multiple Rockford media reports at the time of the vote.

Before coming to Rockford, Novak served as the executive director for the Ela Area Public Library based in Lake Zurich. Novak, who has a law degree from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, has 20-plus years of experience working in libraries, Cataldo said. After completing his law degree, Novak graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in library science. He will become Huntley library’s fourth executive director when he starts the top librarian spot later this month.

Taxpayers are outraged over their property bills • TAX BILL Continued from page B1 Township Officials of Illinois. Legislators seeking the easing of the property tax burden have had to resort to passing smaller-scale bills because large-scale overhauls have stalled. Northwest Herald stories have revealed that local government lobbying groups

whose dues are paid by your property taxes have fought tax relief measures. Many of these bills have been prompted by taxpayer outrage over the fact that their property bills have stayed the same or in many cases increased despite their home values plummeting in the wake of the bursting of the housing bubble.

Director says rate increase is needed • BUDGET Continued from page B1 levy beyond its current maximum levy cap. An amended version of the bill was unanimously passed out of committee Thursday. It would require the district to take its request to the voters and would not exempt them from the limits placed on how

much governments can raise their levies by in a year. “This rate increase is necessary if the district is to broaden its mission to preserve, restore, maintain and provide public access to historic structures of cultural significance on properties owned by the district,” District Executive Director Elizabeth Kessler said in a news release.

does not post $30K by Friday deadline By BRENDA SCHORY ST. CHARLES – Petting zoo owner Stacy Fiebelkorn of Elgin missed a 4:30 p.m. deadline without putting up $30,000 as required for the care of her impounded animals, so the animals are now forfeited. A circuit clerk official confirmed that Fiebelkorn did not post any cash by the deadline. Her attorney, Jamie Wombacher, could not be reached for comment. Kane County Associate Judge Elizabeth Flood had set the amount to pay for the continued care and feeding of more than 90 ill and malnourished animals that were impounded by Kane County Animal Control last month. According to state law, an owner can be required to put up cash security to pay for animals that are under the care of animal control. If cash is not posted within the required five days, the remaining animals would be forfeited “without further proceedings,” Flood said in her ruling. Fiebelkorn gave up the poultry, rabbits and most of the goats from her Mini Zoo Crew traveling petting zoo. But she fought the forfeiture of the remaining 30 animals, mostly horses and donkeys. Flood already had ruled that she had to give up her llamas and alpacas because of their starved condition.

The two goats Fiebelkorn did not want to give up are not included in the security bond because the law does not consider them as companion animals, Flood ruled last week. Kane County Animal Control is expected to file another petition by Monday for additional cash security to pay for the animals’ continuing care. Fiebelkorn was charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty and neglect in connection with the condition o f t h e a n imals in her care. Those charges are pending and Stacy scheduled Fiebelkorn for a hearing April 17. Also scheduled for hearing is on a motion by Wombacher seeking to limit officials’ comments about the animals outside of court. The court papers assert that extensive coverage with comments would affect Fiebelkorn’s right to a fair trial. Also still pending is a request asking the judge to let Fiebelkorn rent six or seven ponies to Donley’s Wild West Town, an amusement park in Union. Nicole Wessel, a veterinarian caring for the impounded animals at a farm near Maple Park, has said the ponies’ condition still was too weak from being starved and malnourished to give children rides.

Program seeing early demand • WELDING Continued from page B1 have been laid off or are looking to change their skill set to earn welding certification. Certification is achieved much faster through the program as students take six-hour classes five days a week for four weeks. The 120-hour program expedites the traditional community college process. Beier’s company also aims to assist businesses with the trailer, allowing manufacturers to have the laboratory on

its premises for a week so employees can gain training onsite. Those courses and training sessions are modified to whatever the business needs, Miller said. “This is only going to keep growing,” Miller said. “We envision a lot more of these opportunities to teach. It’s a fast-track solution.” The program has already seen early demand. Miller said the first course was held recently in Lisle and another course was going to start Monday in DeKalb. A company in southern Illinois will have a

modified training session soon after. Beier said the trailer has been booked through June. Jeffery Poynter, director for the McHenry County Workforce Network Board, said the innovative idea allows businesses to offer their employees crucial training while not needing to cut into production time. “Almost all manufacturing engages welding, and we’ve had a shortage of welders,” Poynter said. “Sending employees to training becomes difficult. This allows them to stay on-site.”

never left his side. Keeping Fred surrounded by love and laughter, the family sat around and told stories about him, and shared cherished memories. So we do not mourn the death of Fred, but instead celebrate the life of this incredible man, the perfect mix of father and friend, strength and tenderness, wisdom and understanding. He will be greatly missed by all and loved by family always. He joins his sister, Fern; and his parents in eternal life. He is survived by his wife, Fran; children, grandchildren and great grand children. Friends may greet family from 9:00 am to 11:00 am Monday, April 7, 2014 in the reception room at Trinity Lutheran Church, 504 E. Diggins St., Harvard. The funeral service will be at 11:00 am in the church nave with Rev. Herb Priester officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Trinity Lutheran Church or the Harvard Food Pantry.

for his 4 children, Kathie Clayton (Dave Hickel), John, Alan (Lisa), and Barbara. His four children would go on to bless him with 5 grandchildren, Robert, Heather (Jodie), Brittany (Adam), Brandon, and Andrew. Brittany and Adam blessed him further with 2 great grandchildren, Taelyn and Easton. Fred always served as a rock and a moral compass for the entire family. He was a lifelong member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Harvard. Through his 92 years of life he gained unmatched wisdom and brilliance which he generously shared with his family through the years. On his exterior, Fred was tough as nails, but his tender heart showed through for all to see. Through his later years and diminishing health, the family he had raised and passed his strong morals and immovable faith to, never left Fred's side. His son, John took the reins and cared for Fred in every single aspect of his life. His daughter, Kathie, and son in law, Dave, purchased a house for them across the road from his son, Alan, and daughter in law, Lisa, so the family could care and provide for him the way he had done for them. Fred particularly enjoyed when Barb would come home for extended stays to visit and care for him. In his final days, the entire family

What do a seed farm, florist and newspaper have in common? Me! Well, a certain seed farm, florist and this newspaper. That is my work history in a nutshell, from age fourteen to present. And I have loved every place. Looking at the list on paper, there really is not much in common among these three places. Or is there? Detassling corn was the perfect job for the teenage version of me. Not old enough to drive? The crew chief picked me up every morning. Not ready to work all summer? It was a short season that still allowed me plenty of time to hang out with friends and watch soap operas. Not very outgoing? Working with a group of kids I didn’t know stretched my comfort zone. Days in the cornfield also taught me to take pride in my work, regardless of the task, and work as a team. I still have such fond memories of those two seasons I detassled. Add in the great tan I got and it might have been my dream job. My move to the florist, nursery, garden center and greenhouse took me out of the field but still around some dirt. That industry provided me incredible retail and customer experience. Working in the flower shop would swing from celebrating a new baby to comforting a family ordering funeral pieces. I eventually worked in the office, learning the ins and outs of running a family-owned business. What other job included spending four hours in a flower cooler alphabetizing corsages for prom orders, filing weekly payroll taxes and offering gardening advice over the phone, all in one day?

Landing here finally got me away from anything agricultural/horticultural and into a corporate environment. Having worked retail hours made me appreciate an eight to five work day. My different positions here at the paper have always been a learning experience but I’ve made it through, putting into action everything I garnered from my days detassling and working at my family’s business. Taking pride in my work and the support of my co-workers pushed me to make one more call on a new customer or get this column done before deadline. Even though I wasn’t shoulder deep in a rows of corn, those principles still applied. If I could pass on any advice to Son and Daughter, it would be to find something about your job that you love and embrace it through the good and the bad. Not every job is going to be ideal but every job offers experiences that continue to shape you. I know I wouldn’t be the same person if I hadn’t spent those summers in the cornfield, put in my time in behind a cash register or wrangled this column every Friday morning. Armchair Review: The Golfer and I saw “The Grand Budapest Hotel” on Saturday afternoon and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s a wry comedy with a dash of political commentary and a splash of slapstick action. Wes Anderson is a quirky director that is not for everyone. But if you like highly stylized, very detailed worlds populated with eccentric characters, this film is for you. The Golfer preferred this one over “Moonrise Kingdom” but we both still agree that “Rushmore” is our favorite of all of Anderson’s projects. Enjoy the weekend! Autumn

“Bad Words” STARRING: Jason Bateman, Kathryn Hahn, Allison Janney

PLOT: A spelling bee loser sets out to exact revenge by finding a loophole and attempting to win as an adult. RATED: R for crude and sexual content, language and brief nudity TIME: 1 hour, 29 minutes VERDICT: If you’ve seen the poster for “Bad Words,” starring and directed by Jason Bateman, you’ll see a sneer on Bateman’s face. It’s truly nasty. More than most movie posters, this image sets a perfect tone for the film, much of which really is that nasty. And funny. Very, very funny. But more on that in a minute. It’s nothing new to see a film about a misanthrope. What does feel different in “Bad Words,” however, is the way Bateman’s character treats kids. Nobody dies or gets physically hurt. But feelings? Kids’feelings? They don’t just get hurt, they get smashed to smithereens, remorselessly and often profanely. Bateman’s directorial debut is set in the singular world of the American spelling bee, where ruthlessly brainy kids compete for stardom, pushed by ruthlessly competitive parents. Trilby is 40 years old, but has found a loophole enabling him to compete: The rules say you can’t have passed the eighth grade. And he hasn’t. Ever. At the regional bee, Trilby shows what he’s capable of. A chubby kid next to him asks what he’s doing onstage. “Your chair called me for help,” Trilby replies. Turns out Trilby may be a misanthrope, but he has a genius IQ. And so he makes the finals of the Golden Quill, which, wouldn’t ya know it, are being televised for the first time. This causes great worry for Dr. Deagan, who runs the bee with an iron fist (Allison Janney, who makes you laugh even before she opens her mouth) and the chief overseeing it all, Dr. Bowman (the august Philip Baker Hall). Trilby’s accompanied by a reporter, Jenny Widgeon (Kathryn Hahn, reliably kooky), whose editors are funding his crosscountry trip on the mere chance he’ll reveal his inner purpose (let’s just note here these editors are unrealistically generous). But the central dynamic is really between Trilby and a precociously adorable 10-year-old boy, Chaitanya Chopra (Rohan Chand), who seeks Trilby’s friendship even though the latter peppers him, too, with insults – calling him “Slumdog” and telling him to shut his “curry-hole” in reference to his ethnic heritage. So what’s the point of it all? Well, it’s an American movie that seeks to be mainstream, and it stars the likable Bateman, so of course you know there’s an underlying reason for what Trilby’s doing, one that will emerge in due course. But to the film’s credit, this twist doesn’t announce itself too soon, and so there’s tension here – not to mention hilarity. There are definitely moments that go too far. But if you know what you’re getting into – an R-rated comedy about a (mostly) nasty guy – it’s hard to imagine you won’t find yourself helplessly “cachinnating” at some points. “Cachinnating?” Laughing hard. Trilby would know how to spell it.

“Divergent” STARRING: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet

PLOT: In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she’s Divergent and won’t fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it’s too late. RATED: PG-13 for intense violence and action, thematic elements and some sensuality TIME: 2 hours, 23 minutes VERDICT: If you have a kid of a certain age – especially a girl, preteen or thereabouts – then you know the young-adult entertainment message of choice these days: You’re you, and nobody else. Don’t let them define you. Don’t let them put you into one of their neat little slots. You’re unique. And you’re gonna show the world. You go, girl! So it’s no surprise this is the message of “Divergent,” the latest young adult blockbuster-in-waiting. It’s also no surprise the emerging young star Shailene Woodley delivers a crucial dose of humility, sensitivity and intelligence in this showcase role. And it’s no surprise, either, she generates nice chemistry with her rather absurdly good-looking co-star, Theo James. What is surprising is with all these promising elements, “Divergent,” the first of three installments

based on first-time author Veronica Roth’s trilogy, ultimately feels so lackluster. For a film predicated on the principle that being different – or “divergent” – is what makes you special, “Divergent” just doesn’t diverge enough from the pack. Like “The Hunger Games,” the franchise to which it will unavoidably be compared, “Divergent” has a readymade audience of fans just waiting to fill those seats – more than 11 million books have been sold, after all. Those book fans will have a crucial head start. “Divergent” takes a good deal of time explaining plot mechanics, but If you already know what’s happening, you can spend more time admiring, say, those cheekbones on James – or his dayold, dystopian stubble. In a nutshell, “Divergent,” directed by Neil Burger, takes place in a futuristic Chicago, a bleak version indeed of the Windy City. Civilization is divided into five factions, based on human virtues: Dauntless, Abnegation, Erudite, Amity, and Candor. Beatrice Prior (Woodley) is born into Abnegation. But at age 16, a citizen can choose their own faction, at the Choosing Ceremony. Right before, they take an aptitude test that tells them which faction they fit best. Beatrice’s results are downright scary: She has not one virtue, but all of them. She is “divergent” – which makes her dangerous. To the distress of her parents (Ashley Judd and Tony Goldwyn), Beatrice opts to join Dauntless, the most courageous faction, but also the most reckless: Pierced and tattooed, they look like unusually fit punk rockers. Soon she’s in boot camp, jumping on and off trains under the guidance of the initially unforgiving Four (James), her trainer. Gradually, Beatrice – she’s renamed herself “Tris” – becomes buff and strong. But will it be enough to survive? On top of all this, there’s a political storm brewing, led by the villainess Jeanine Matthews, played by a blonde and stiletto-clad Kate Winslet in one of her less convincing performances (in a sadly under-written role.) Matthews is the leader of Erudite, which means she’s got a killer IQ along with those killer heels, and she’s convinced Divergents are a threat to her plan to overthrow Abnegation. At 143 minutes, the movie feels overly long, and by the end, you may want to hop onto one of those trains yourself and hope it arrives somewhere a lot less grim. But two sequels await. So there’s always hope. – The Associated Press

“Noah” STARRING: Russell Crow, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins

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

VERDICT: Old Testament fury has rarely come to such spectacularly fearsome life than in “Noah,” Darren Aronofsky’s audacious adaptation of one of the Bible’s best-known but still enigmatic chapters. Be warned: Anyone familiar with the 500-yearold man and his ark may need to check some of their most cherished visualizations of him at the door. No cozy two-by-two images of beatific giraffes grace this “Noah.” The result is a movie that is clearly deeply respectful of its source material but also at times startlingly revisionist, a go-for-broke throwback to Hollywood biblical epics of yore. Viewers might not agree about what they’ve seen when they come out of “Noah.” But there’s no doubt Aronofsky has made an ambitious, serious, even visionary film, whose super-sized popcornmovie vernacular might submerge the story’s more reflective implications, but never drowns them entirely. Appropriately enough, Aronofsky starts In the Beginning, and after a brief prologue revisiting Adam and Eve, original sin and the fatal rivalry between Cain and Abel, catches up with Noah as a boy who, by virtue of

his lineage and an enchanted snakeskin bestowed on him by his father, is clearly destined for greater things. Conceived and staged like a conventional superhero origin story, “Noah” then finds the grown-up protagonist – played by a solemn, haunted-looking Russell Crowe – living in Canaan alongside his wife, Naameh (Jennifer Connelly), and their sons, Ham, Shem and, eventually, Japeth. When Noah begins to experience visions of the apocalyptic flood to come, Aronofsky choreographs them not as wordsfrom-on-high messages from the divine, but as stylized, terrifying visions. He’s just as expressive with the most technically challenging set pieces: the arduous construction of the enormous Ark (here produced according to Biblical proportions, down to the last cubit), the arrival of the animals and that annihilating flood, which Aronofsky stages as a cascade of rainstorms, geysers and waves. Amidst such visual busyness, Crowe and Connelly deliver impressively grounded, powerful performances, with Crowe playing Noah first as a humble, divinely inspired servant and, eventually, as a wild-eyed zealot, and Connelly brimming with earthy rectitude as his far more steady-eyed wife. One of the most delightful reshufflings is a central role for Noah’s ancient forebear, Methusela, played by Anthony Hopkins in a convincing turn as a white-haired figure of mystical, oracular wisdom. Although it’s understandable that the filmmaker wanted to make “Noah” a parable of environmental stewardship, for many believers the story is primarily about hearing and responding to God’s voice. As off-putting as “Noah’s” juiced-up subplots and cinder-eyed Watchers can be, it’s impossible not to be impressed, engaged and moved by Aronofsky’s own passionate commitment to the Noah story, which reportedly has captivated him since he was an adolescent. – The

down by one after they rob a drug cartel safe house. RATED: R for strong bloody violence, pervasive language, some sexuality/nudity and drug use TIME: 1 hour, 49 minutes VERDICT: “Sabotage” opens with Arnold Schwarzenegger, as drug enforcement agent John “Breacher” Wharton, sitting in front of his computer screen watching a video of a woman being tortured. He’s obviously disturbed by it, judging by the look on his craggy face. It’s a nasty, brutish job he has. By the time the movie was over, I shared his dismay. After that brief, if intensely unpleasant prologue, the movie quickly gets down to its own dirty business, jumping to a scene of Breacher as he leads his team of elite commandos in a bloody assault on a drug dealer’s compound. As the bodies of the bad guys pile up, the movie’s apparent mantra – “Target down!” – is evoked again and again as these officers with military-grade weapons move through the house. Although the violence ebbs and flows, it never stops. That’s to be expected in a film by David Ayer, the writer of “Training Day” (2001) and the writer-director of “End of Watch” (2012). Unlike them, however, “Sabotage” lacks any degree of artistic perspective on the barbarity. The plot centers on the investigation of a series of assassinations targeting the members of Breacher’s team that begin shortly after that initial drug operation. One by one, the members of Breacher’s squad start turning up dead, the victims of

murders as grisly as they are theatrical. Like most of Ayer’s heroes, the “good guys” are all flawed to varying degrees. One, played by Mireille Enos, is even a junkie. The rest are pretty much the kind of profane, sexist pigs who would make an NFL locker room look like a Boy Scout meeting. Ayer, I have no doubt, would argue that this frank portrayal honestly reflects the rough-and-tumble culture of steam-blowing machismo that permeates the high-stress world of SWAT teams. While that might be true, it ain’t pretty. Frankly, it shouldn’t be. Schwarzenegger is Schwarzenegger, albeit in a role that’s considerably darker than many he has taken. Much better and more nuanced is Olivia Williams, playing the detective looking into the string of murders. She, too, is ethically compromised, if only mildly. Harold Perrineau injects a bit of much-needed comic relief as her sidekick. As for the actors portraying the members of the special-ops team, they are largely relegated to the role of generic victim, with the notable exceptions of Terrence Howard and Sam Worthington. Worthington comes closest to being the film’s moral center, and I hate to tell you what happens to him. This is a story that needs blood to make an impact because its message is murky. With a motivation that feels disturbingly similar to that of the guy who made the torture video that opens the film, “Sabotage” doesn’t exactly glorify violence, but it certainly does get off on it.

lacking finesse. Viewer satisfaction: Likely high. Box-office prospects: Bankable. Teasers for future Marvel installments: Yes, two. With slick design and plushy interiors, “The Winter Soldier” is an excellent product. But is it a good movie? Are the two indistinguishable at this point? The earlier “Captain America: First Avenger” was a mostly clever period film, set in the 40s and awash with a charming WWII thriller nostalgia. “Winter Soldier” brings Steve Rogers – the weakling recruit made a brawny Greatest Generation icon, played by Chris Evans – up to present day for a Washington D.C. conspiracy thriller. Fittingly, Marvel has attracted the default hero of such films, Robert Redford. He’s a major get for the franchise, especially since (unlike in last year’s “All is Lost”) he’s actually talking now. Its head, Nick Fury (Samuel Jackson), believes something is amiss with the agency’s latest project: a trio of “helicarriers” that can kill evildoers from the sky even before the evil is done. Captain America, a stand-in for a more innocent, noble America, wonders if the helicarriers are like “holding a gun to everyone on Earth and calling it protection.” But that’s about the extent of such talk in “Winter Soldier”: a political thriller without the politics. (Be warned: some small spoilers follow.) Fury, having doubted the project, finds himself a hunted man. Captain America is left to investigate with only a few trustworthy friends: Scarlett Johansson’s scarlet-haired former KGB agent Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a. the Black Widow (an “Avengers” toss-in, added like a dash of paprika) and Anthony Mackie’s veteran Sam Wilson (a welcome newbie). The best thing “Winter Soldier” has going for it is its cast, a uniformly likable bunch, particularly the winning Mackie, whose character dons mechanical wings to become the Falcon. And then there’s Redford, who plays Alexander Pierce, a S.H.I.E.L.D. director. Redford, naturally, classes up the joint. Directing brothers Anthony Russo and Joe Russo (“You, Me and Dupree”) and screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (“Thor: The Dark World”) put perhaps a bit more into character development than these films often do. The brightly lit D.C. environs, too, give the film something of a sense of the real world. It’s getting difficult to tell the Marvel movies apart. So while “The Winter Soldier” succeeds as finely engineered merchandise built to be crowd-pleasing entertainment, for moviegoers and shareholders alike, it has a shelf life that won’t last much past its running time. – The

Teen shares in friend’s grief Gym membership can provide without shedding any tears incentive to work out regularly day, they told our class one of my friend’s parents had died unexpectedly. Every single person in our grade cried, except for me. I felt bad about not crying for my friend’s loss, but I just didn’t. Another friend told me last night people were texting, and it had been mentioned several times I wasn’t crying and it looked like I didn’t care, even though I do. I feel bad about not crying, but I don’t want to lie and say I did. Please help me. – Dry-Eyed In Colorado Dear Dry-Eyed: If you feel any explanation is called for, simply say when you heard the news you were so stunned you couldn’t cry. Your reaction is very common. When bad news is conveyed, some people are just struck numb. Believe me, not everyone who can cry on command is necessarily grieving. Dear Abby: My boyfriend, “Chico,” and I have been going together for six years. We have discussed marriage, but for the past few months he has become distant and not as loving as

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips he once was. Chico is the dependent type who often needs to be reminded by his parents or me about things he needs to do. When I asked Chico what was going on, he said he is confused, and he thinks he relies too much on his parents and me for direction. He said he didn’t want to break up, but he would like some time alone. He assured me there is no one else involved, and he wants to continue talking on the phone to me once in a while. I don’t know what to do. Should I believe what he is saying about needing time, or do you think this is Chico’s way of telling me it’s over? – Heartbroken In

Hoboken Dear Heartbroken: Frankly, I think Chico is trying to break it to you gently that it’s over. Wish him well and let him go. You probably meant well, but the problem with giving someone “directions” is, it

prevents that person’s own compass from guiding him where he needs to go. Look at it this way: This may be a period of growth for Chico and for you as well. Dear Abby: I have been dating someone over the last two years and our relationship has had a lot of ups and downs. We are in our 50s, and we have both been married before. The problem is, he thinks he always has to be right. He’ll never admit to being wrong. We love each other and spend most of our time together, but every time we have an argument, he calls our relationship off. I am always the one who calls to patch things up. Should I let this relationship go once and for all? – Tired Of The

Drama In Atlanta Dear Tired Of The Drama: Yes, I think so. Your gentleman friend has an unhealthy way of dealing with conflict. Unless your idea of a happy marriage is one in which you are always the peacemaker, I doubt it would last. • Write Dear Abby at www. or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Dear Dr. K: I want to start exercising regularly. Should I join a gym? Dear Reader: You don’t need a gym in order to exercise regularly. Your body offers the cheapest equipment available. And the money you save by not paying for a gym membership might be put to good use elsewhere, whether that means monthly bills or tennis lessons. But joining a gym has its benefits, too. Spending money on a gym membership might be an incentive to use it regularly and get your money’s worth. Classes offer companionship and a safe way to learn technique. Most good gyms offer a wide range of equipment and a changing roster of exercise classes that can keep you motivated to work out. Often, personal trainers are available for weekly appointments or short-term overhauls of your routine. Some health care plans offer discounted rates at specific gyms. They’re not just doing you a favor: It’s also in their interest. They know regular exercise improves your health – which, in turn, reduces the medical expenses they might have to pay.

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff Before deciding whether a gym is right for you, consider your preferences and needs. Ask yourself: Do you prefer to work out alone or with others? How far must you travel to the gym? Are you likely to make the trek? Do the gym’s hours of operation work well for you? If you decide to join one, look for the following: • A good match between your goals and the facility. Choose a gym that’s well-equipped. A variety of machines and exercise classes lets you mix up your routine and avoid boredom. And having plenty of equipment can mean no wait, or at least a shorter one, when the gym is busy. Many gyms will let you try their facilities for a few days before making a commitment. • Well-trained staff. Expertise in teaching people to use strength-training equipment and free weights is essential. Ask about staff background and training. Certification

from the American College of Sports Medicine is a good sign. • A well-maintained facility. Check to make sure the gym keeps its equipment in good working order. Ask current members if machines are frequently out of order. Also, note whether the public spaces and locker rooms appear clean and well-kept. Whether you choose a gym or not, exercise regularly. It just makes you feel better. And no pill yet invented is as powerfully good for your health as regular exercise. In the past 15 years, scientific studies have discovered several factors that make regular exercise easier to achieve: • You don’t need to exercise hard enough to break a sweat. A brisk walk in your street clothes to and from work to where you park or catch public transportation can do it. • You don’t need to do all 30 minutes per day, five days per week, for 30 consecutive minutes. You can break it up into pieces. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

NEW YORK – James Franco has apologized for his Instagram flirtation with a 17-year-old. On the morning talk show “Live With Kelly and Michael,” Franco said Friday that he used “bad judgment” and “learned my lesson.” The 35-year-old actor and filmmaker was caught trying to pick up a Scottish teenage girl named Lucy Clode on the photo-sharing app. Franco said Friday that he was embarrassed and that he’s “a model of how social media is tricky.” He said the awkward process of meeting someone was made “doubly” embarrassing since it was in the public spotlight because of his celebrity.


Rapper Trick Daddy arrested in Florida FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Authorities said rapper Trick Daddy has been arrested in South Florida on several charges, including possession of cocaine and possession of weapon and ammunition by a convicted felon. A Broward Sheriff’s Office report said the 39-year-old rapper, whose real name is Maurice Young, was arrested Thursday at his home in suburban Miramar. A drug task force was conducting surveillance when Young got in his car to leave. Deputies stopped Young based on an expired driver’s license, and he is said to have admitted to having cocaine in the house. A search warrant was obtained. The report says deputies found a small quantity of the drug plus a 9mm handgun and ammunition.

Lopez-backed company buys Fuse

Lancome taps Lupita Nyong’o as new face NEW YORK – The fashion and beauty industry’s love affair with Lupita Nyong’o continues: The Oscar winner has been named the new face for Lancome. The Mexican-born Kenyan will be the first black ambassador for the brand, which features Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet, Penelope Cruz and Lily Collins as spokeswomen. In a statement Friday, Nyong’o said she was proud to represent Lancome, adding “beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman’s freedom to be herself.” It’s the first major endorsement deal for the 31-year-old, who won the best-supporting Oscar for her role in “12 Years a Slave.” Her striking beauty and fashion sense made her the “It Girl” for the Hollywood awards season. Lancome ads featuring Nyong’o will start appearing this summer.

NEW YORK – The Jennifer Lopez-backed company that owns NUVOtv, an English-language cable entertainment network aimed at Latinos, has bought the Fuse music network. SiTV Media said Friday it had agreed to pay $226 million to Fuse’s owner, the Madison Square Garden Co. SiTV reportedly outbid Revolt, the music network started by Sean Combs. Fuse is in 73 million homes, more than twice that of NUVOtv. SiTV announced no plans to change or close Fuse, although there is precedent for companies buying networks with greater distribution in order to help their own networks grow. Al-Jazeera bought Current TV and shut Current down.

‘Snooki’ of ‘Jersey Shore’ expecting baby No. 2 NEW YORK – “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is expecting baby No. 2. The 26-year-old reality star said in an interview Friday with Us Weekly: “I’m due in the fall around my wedding time. Busy year!” The pregnancy was confirmed by her publicist. Polizzi and her fiance, Jionni LaValle, are the parents of a 19-month-old son, Lorenzo.

J.C. Penney teams up with Elle Macpherson for lingerie NEW YORK – J.C. Penney is hoping that some supermodel magic will win over shoppers in the lingerie department. The beleaguered department store chain is launching an exclusive lingerie collection in the U.S. with a partnership with Elle Macpherson, who along with Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford and others defined a new generation of supermodels in the 1980s. The collection will be in 300 of Penney’s 1,100 stores starting April 11. Penney said it will wait to see how the brand fares before deciding whether to roll it out to its other stores. The collection, called The Body by Elle Macpherson, which refers to her nickname, offers bras and panties in mostly cotton. Its emphasis is on the smoothest, most precise fit that can be worn every day. The collection builds on Macpherson’s lingerie business that she founded in 1990 with the launch of an collection of lacy and silk lingerie that’s sold at upscale stores here and abroad including Bloomingdale’s and Harrod’s.

Murphy’s last film gets 4-state test run EUGENE, Ore. – Brittany Murphy’s final movie opens Friday in Eugene before going on a limited run. The actress died at age 32 in December 2009. That year she worked on a psychological thriller called “Something Wicked,” and much of it was filmed in Eugene and other parts of Lane County. The movie made for nearly $5 million failed to get a distribution deal with the large studios. But producer and local businessman Scott Chambers told The Register-Guard that Regal Cinemas is giving the film a test run in Seattle, Portland, Alaska and Idaho over the next month before deciding whether to take it nationally. “Depending on how it does in the Northwest, [Regal] can roll it out quickly to the rest of the country, so it’s important we do well here in Eugene,” Chambers said.

IHSA chief, lawmaker butt heads on HR 895 lic hearings on how the IHSA administers and funds high school sports. But Hickman takes exception to a suggestion listed in the final lines of the resolution that the hearings also consider “the feasibility of statutorily transferring the duties and functions of the IHSA to the Illinois State Board of Education.” Hickman said in a radio interview with WRMJ in Aledo that Chapa LaVia’s proposal amounts to a state takeover. In a phone interview with

By JEFF ARNOLD IHSA Executive Director Marty Hickman believes the nonprofit organization he oversees is being targeted by the state representative that has introduced a house resolution seeking more transparency from the association. House Resolution 895, brought forward by State Rep. Linda Chapa LaVia, D-Aurora, seeks to set up pub-

the Northwest Herald on Friday afternoon, Hickman said the IHSA felt blindsided by the legislator’s efforts. “We feel like we’re a very responsible organization,” Hickman said. “We pay our Marty bills, we fund our penHickman sion, we balanced our budget and I would be happy to put our record of fiscal re-

sponsibility up against anyone – including the state of Illinois. “If it’s that kind of conduct that warrants the government coming in and targeting you, then we are really in a bad way.” But Chapa LaVia said Friday afternoon that it was never her intent to turn the IHSA’s duties over to the state board of education. It’s a message she said she told Hickman along with State Rep. Jehan Gordon, D-Peoria, when they met this week.

Instead, she said, her goal with the resolution is to seek transparency on some of the contracts that the IHSA – which she characterized Friday as being “untouchable” – currently maintains. “I said it over and over,” Chapa LaVia said. “So now, we’re at the point where he’s just lying. “It just makes me suspicious the way he is reacting.”

Celebrating 100 years Will Renteria last enough games to fail or succeed? By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO

Sarah Nader –

Fans arrive at Wrigley Field before the home opener Friday against the Philadelphia Phillies. The Cubs lost, 7-2. See more photos at

Win or lose, passion of fans at Wrigley Field endures CHICAGO – Greg Fizdale is about to become a father. Fizdale’s wife, Leslie, is eight months pregnant with the couple’s first child. If her pregnancy were any further along, it might have interfered with Fizdale’s annual guys trip from Indianapolis to see the Cubs’ home opener at Wrigley Field. “I was telling her it was good timing,” Fizdale, 35, said with a grin before his eighth consecutive home opener. “Because I probably would have missed the birth.” Fizdale was kidding. At least, I think he was kidding. The only certainty is that the party has returned to Wrigleyville after one of the most miserable winters in this city’s history. And judging by the packed bars, crowded

VIEWS Tom Musick sidewalks and filled stadium before Friday’s game, Cubs fans will party regardless of whether their team finishes first, worst or somewhere in between. Granted, those fans might leave a few innings earlier than they used to, as was the case during the Cubs’ quiet 7-2 loss against the Philadelphia Phillies. But every game on the North Side draws a crowd, and Opening Day continues to be extra special. Across the street from the stadium, hundreds of people filled Bernie’s Tap & Grill. Eric Bonano

arrived at 9 a.m. and found a spot in the outdoor beer garden, where he drank Budweisers in wind chills that crept to 28 degrees Fahrenheit by game time. “We don’t have a Mardi Gras here,” said Bonano, 37, who marked his 14th consecutive home opener. “And this is about the closest thing that there is to it.” You want to know the depth of Bonano’s dedication to the Cubs? “I actually dropped out of school in 2003 because I was following that 2003 season so much,” said Bonano, who was pursuing a political science degree at Northern Illinois. “I fell some credits short because I just missed class after class after class.” Bonano wasn’t kidding. At least, I don’t think he was kidding.

Elsewhere in the noisy bar, passion teamed up with poignancy. Juliann Atkinson of Winthrop Harbor wore a button with a picture of her late brother-in-law, Chuck Gesky. Atkinson sat beside Sara Ames, Gesky’s daughter. Gesky attended 30 consecutive Cubs home openers before his death in 2009. His family has preserved the tradition as a happy remembrance of their loved one. “We come out for him,” said Atkinson, 59. “Every opener. And we won’t miss it.” Nobody was going to miss it, not at Bernie’s or any of the other establishments in the neighborhood that were buzzing long before the first pitch.

See MUSICK, page C4

CHICAGO – Carlos Villanueva knew what he was signing up for when he chose to join the Cubs as a free agent last year. First-year Cubs manager Rick Renteria also was well aware of the expectations and weight his job carries when he accepted the gig during the offseason. “You don’t question their ability to Rick manage, but espe- Renteria cially here in Chicago, it can break you,” Villanueva said. “I’ve only been here for one year, but I see how things are.” Chicago broke Lou Piniella. It broke Mike Quade and Dale Sveum and many more before them. Renteria’s eternal optimism will be tested as the Cubs’ manager. Positive and upbeat are often used to describe Renteria. However, during the rebuilding process he will have to show the front office he is a long-term solution. Friday’s home opener at Wrigley Field, a 7-2 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies, was Day No. 4 of Renteria’s regular-season audition. Villanueva believes a manager can make a “humongous difference,” which the pitcher has experienced through the good and not-so-good managers during his career. The 30-year-old Villanueva is in his eighth season in the majors and has already played for five different managers. “It definitely affects the way you play, at least it affects your attitude,” Villanueva said. “I’ve been places where guys come in, and they don’t really say it, but they feel like, ‘Man, I don’t really want to play for this guy.’ You don’t want to give it all for this guy. You don’t want that to happen.”

Tough on hitters, base runners Hanselmann pitches complete game for Trojans, picks off 3 By TIM SIECK CARY – A warning to all those facing Cary-Grove’s Larkin Hanselmann this season: No leadoff at first base is safe. The Trojans’ lefty picked off three base runners and was almost unhittable Friday as C-G picked up a 6-1 nonconference victory over Boylan. “I saw them leading off first base kind of far a few times and thought about stepping off the mound but instead used my pickoff move,” Hanselmann said. “I’ve been working on my move quite a bit in practice and it worked today.”

On a cold and windy day better suited for ice fishing, Hanselmann took advantage of ideal pitching conditions and threw a completegame gem. The Trojans (4-3) junior allowed just one run on four hits while striking out eight. “My change-up and curveball were my best pitches today, and that is what helped me late in the game,” Hanselmann said. “I basically was trying to pitch to contact because I knew my defense would have my back, and today they did.” Boylan (2-2) started the scoring in the first inning. After a two-out single and wild pitch, Joe Fehrle had an RBI single to put the Ti-

tans up 1-0. C-G answered in the bottom half of the first inning. Dean Christakes started things off for the Trojans with a single and stole second and third before scoring on an RBI groundout. Later in the inning, Rob Johnson put C-G up 2-1 with a two-out RBI single. Boylan starter Martin Arteaga settled in after a rocky first inning and retired the final 10 batters he faced. Arteaga was the tough-luck losing pitcher, going four innings and allowing two runs on three hits.

McCaughn resigns as CL South coach By JOE STEVENSON Kyle McCaughn was pleasantly surprised Friday evening as the texts and emails rolled in. Former Crystal Lake South girls basketball players heard their former coach had resigned and wanted to let him know how they felt. “The relationships I’ve had is what I’ll remember most,” said McCaughn, who is stepping down after 13 years. “I received a lot of very heartfelt emails and texts from ex-players thankful for the times we had and the things we did together.” McCaughn was 198-178 in his 13 years, with five 20-win seasons and three Fox Valley Conference or FVC Valley Division titles. McCaughn said those relationships meant

more than the wins did. By resigning, McCaughn will have more time to spend with his children – Caleb, 11, and Morgan, 8. “I’ve had an opportunity to coach [my children’s] teams, and I plan on doing that again,” he said South athletic director Jason Bott said McCaughn did an exemplary job. “He has been a tremendous leader through character-building and making sure that his athletes enjoyed the experience through participation in the program,” Bott said. McCaughn did not rule out coaching again, but said it would not be as a head varsity coach. “Head coach is a 12-montha-year job,” McCaughn said. “I don’t have what it takes to be a head coach. I need a break.”

Sharing the wealth By JOHN JACKSON The Associated Press CHICAGO – Jimmy Butler and Kirk Hinrich had 17 points apiece to lead seven players in double figures, and the Bulls, despite some occasional lapses in the fourth quarter, cruised to a 102-90 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night. Carlos Boozer and D.J. Augustin scored 14 points apiece. Taj Gibson added 13, Mike Dunleavy 12 and Joakim Noah had 11 points and 13 rebounds. The Bulls have won four straight and six of seven, and remained tied with the Toronto Raptors for third in

Brandon Knight had 22 points before fouling out with just more than two minutes left for Milwaukee. Jeff Adrien added 21 points for the Bucks, who have dropped four straight overall and 12 straight on the road.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Around 10:45 p.m. or so on Thursday night, Joel Quenneville was holed up in his United Center office with the rest of the Blackhawks’ coaching staff. The Colorado Avalanche were a minute away from losing to the Rangers, meaning the Hawks were a minute away from closing to within a point of home-ice advantage in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Then the Avs did what the Avs do, tying the game late and going on to win. “We left when they tied it up,” Quenneville said. Not because the shootout victory was inevitable – although for the Avs these days, it sure seems that way – but because the Hawks had a flight to Columbus to catch. But make no mistake: Although

the Hawks pulled out a dramatic 4-3 victory against the Blue Jackets on Friday night on Ben Smith’s scrambling goal with 3.7 seconds left in the third period, at least part of their attention remains firmly on Colorado, and the first-round series that almost certainly will start in less than two weeks. “We’ve been thinking like that for a while now,” Quenneville said. “I think probably both teams look [at it] like it’s inevitable. Got a lot of respect for them. … They’ve got a lot of weaponry. They’ve got a lot of skill. They’ve got a lot of talent.

It’s a dangerous team.” The Hawks’ victory Friday, meanwhile, dealt a cruel blow to Columbus’ playoff push. The Blue Jackets are clinging to the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. For the Hawks, though, it was their second confidence-building victory is as many nights without their two biggest stars – Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews. And it was gritty, makeshift lines such as Bryan Bickell, Peter Regin and Jeremy Morin leading the charge. “We miss those guys big time, it’s pretty clear, but guys are stepping up, guys are playing hard and we’re playing, for the most part, a simple game,” said Smith, who pushed a Duncan Keith rebound under a pile of bodies and past Sergei Bobrovsky for the game-winner. “And that’s helping us keep games close and pull through in the end.”

Trojans Contracts with vendors, suppliers at issue “I don’t know what more score 4 in IHSA transparency we should have. I think we’re pretty transparent.” 5th inning • Continued from page C1

• BASEBALL Continued from page C1 The Trojans broke the game open in the fifth inning with two-out RBIs by Matt Sutherland and Willie Hartke. C-G coach Don Sutherland said his Trojans played their best game of the season Friday. “I really feel we executed very well in some really tough weather conditions,” Sutherland said. “I wasn’t happy we gave up that run in the first inning because, when it’s this cold, I didn’t want the team getting down and then thinking about how cold it is. “We were able to rebound nicely after that first inning and had great pitching, some clutch two-out hitting, good defense, and good base running. A great win against a good team.” C-G was led by Dean Christakes, who was 2 for 3 with two runs scored and three stolen bases.

Chapa LaVia said this week she is not conducting a “witch hunt.” But she believes people should have a window into how the IHSA conducts its business. At issue is a series of exclusive contracts the IHSA maintains with vendors and suppliers that provide athletic equipment and clothing in exchange, the resolution reads, for monetary compensation to the IHSA. The IHSA also receives funds from the National Federation of High Schools that holds the broadcast rights for IHSA state tournaments. But because the IHSA holds 501(c)(3) status, Hickman said he and the association’s board of directors are not obligated to provide that information. He points to the fact that the IHSA posts its financials and annual report on its website as evidence that the IHSA has nothing to hide. “Look at other organizations that are out there that are similar to us – 501(c)(3)’s – tell me another one that

Marty Hickman IHSA executive director is under the same scrutiny that we are,” Hickman said. “I don’t know what more transparency we should have. I think we’re pretty transparent.” Chapa LaVia, however, considers the IHSA different because it oversees athletics being played at the state’s public and private schools. The resolution states that “public high school athletic and academic programs belong to the taxpayers who fund their local school districts.” But Hickman said that schools are not mandated to carry IHSA membership, giving them the option not to operate within its boundaries. This week, both the Illinois Press Association and Illinois Broadcaster’s Association backed Chapa LaVia’s request for more

transparency, stating that the IHSA has “almost no accountability or oversight.” Again, Hickman refers to the IHSA’s nonprofit status and can’t understand why the association is being targeted by Chapa LaVia. He characterized this week’s meeting as two sides moving in opposite directions and that he – like Chapa LaVia – isn’t certain where the process will go moving forward. Both sides maintain they’ve got lawmakers supporting their respective opinions. “There’s some things that we don’t feel are the kind of things that we would release – including these contracts – because of our agreement from these groups,” Hickman said. Hickman said some of the agreements help fund IHSA programs and “do more for high schools.” He said the IHSA does not charge schools to participate in events. Chapa LaVia said, however, that if that’s the case and if the IHSA has done plenty of good for high school athletics, it shouldn’t have a problem being more open. Part of her bottom line, she

said, is making sure that “people aren’t profiting off our kids unjustly.” “Why should [Hickman] worry?” Chapa LaVia said. “If he’s doing such a great job, he shouldn’t be worried. People want to know there is transparency there. There’s a lot of money going in and out of the organization. If you’re saying you’ve given $2 million to the schools in my state, then that’s my business.” Hickman disagreed, saying that the IHSA shouldn’t have to answer for how it conducts business, especially when he said much of the revenue – including the almost $11 million the IHSA reported it generated in 2012 and 2013, according to its annual report – is being put back into operating tournaments and other events for the 300,000 students in Illinois who participate in sports. Chapa LaVia’s resolution and inquiries leave Hickman scratching his head. “To criticize someone for having quality relationships with quality companies,” Hickman said, “is just hard for me to fathom.”

Wolves sign younger son of ex-Hawks star Chelios The Chicago Wolves announced Friday they signed defenseman Jake Chelios to a professional tryout contract. Chelios, the younger son of former Blackhawks defenseman Chris Chelios, joins the Wolves after launching his professional career March 22 with the Toledo Walleye of ECHL. The 23-yearold had a goal and an assist in seven games with Toledo. When Chelios appears in his first game for the Wolves, he’ll become part of the first fatherand-son tandem to play for the franchise in its 20-year history. Chris Chelios capped his 27-season professional career with the Wolves in 2009-10, when he had five goals and 17 assists in 46 regular-season games.

Creighton’s McDermott adds Wooden Award ARLINGTON, Texas – Creighton’s Doug McDermott won the Wooden Award on Friday, given to the game’s top player as selected by the Los Angeles Athletic Club. Earlier Friday, McDermott was named player of the year by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association. McDermott was selected The Associated Press player of the year Thursday.

Manning leaves Tulsa to coach Wake Forest Danny Manning, the former Kansas star who spent the past two seasons coaching Tulsa, was hired Friday as Wake Forest’s basketball coach. He’ll be introduced at a news conference next week on campus in Winston-Salem, N.C., a short drive from where Manning grew up. His hiring ends Wake Forest’s two-week search for a replacement for Jeff Bzdelik, who resigned under intense public pressure after four mostly unremarkable seasons.

Manager: Schumacher’s condition improves GRENOBLE, France – Michael Schumacher is now showing “moments of consciousness and awakening,” more than three months after suffering serious head injuries in a skiing accident, the retired Formula One star’s manager said Friday. Schumacher, 45, fell while skiing Dec. 29 in France and hit the right side of his head on a rock, cracking his helmet. Doctors operated to remove blood clots from his brain, but some were left because they were too deeply embedded. Schumacher’s condition stabilized after he was placed in a drug-induced coma. In late January, doctors at a hospital in the French city of Grenoble began the process of withdrawing sedatives to try to wake him.

Chase Elliott grabs first Nationwide victory FORT WORTH, Texas – Chase Elliott grabbed his first career Nationwide Series victory, using a strong pass of Kevin Harvick and then pulling away for an easy win at Texas Motor Speedway.

Eaton does it his way: all out By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Adam Eaton’s max-effort game takes no days off. After throwing his body around U.S. Cellular Field with reckless abandon this week, the White Sox’s center fielder got his uniform dirty during the Royals’ home opener at Kauffman Stadium on Friday. Like it or not, wherever Eaton goes, he promises to play the same way. And believe it or not, not everyone seems to like Eaton’s style – one that almost always resonates well with fans. “Yeah. I feel like I’ve gotten a lot of grief for that, which I think is quite ridiculous,” Eaton said. “You get static if you don’t play hard, and when you do play hard, you get static.’’ The 5-foot-8 lefty crashed into the wall once at U.S. Cellular Field, slid into it another time and made two head-first slides into first base in the season-opening series against the Twins. In the Sox’s 7-5 loss to the Royals on Friday, he laid out and came up short trying to catch Omar Infante’s blooper that fell for a single. He also got hit by a pitch, singled in two runs and went 2 for 4 to hike his average to .313. A 19thround draft choice acquired from the Diamondbacks in a three-team trade that cost the Sox pitcher Hector Santiago, Eaton takes pride in his working-class pedigree. “Like I’ve said before, I’m not supposed to be here, so I’m going to play like every day is my last day,” he said. “The fans pay their hard-earned money to come see me play, and if I don’t give my 110 percent, I’m doing them an injustice, especially where we play on the South Side. Those are blue-collar people. It’s our job to give them a show and give them 110 percent. If that’s upsetting, I’m sorry. I don’t want to do an injustice to my team, myself, my family, the name on the back and front of the jersey, and that’s what I’m going to do.’’ Eaton seemed to be caught off guard by the criticism of his hard-nosed play, which he said came from “everywhere.” “I feel like Twitter blew up, that I’m no good on the dis-

Johnson struggles early in Sox’s loss KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Rookie righthander Erik Johnson put the White Sox in a big hole early. The Kansas City Royals scored three runs in the first and another in the second off Johnson en route to a 7-5 victory Friday over the White Sox. Johnson retired only 14 of the 28 batters he faced, yielding seven runs on 10 hits, three walks and a hit batter to take the loss. The Sox trailed 7-2 by the time Johnson was pulled with two outs in the fifth. – The Associated Press abled list and this and that. It is what it is.” Sox first base coach Daryl Boston, who works with outfielders, has expressed concern that Eaton will injure himself diving into first base. It’s generally accepted that a runner will reach the bag sooner by running through it rather than diving, so it makes sense only when trying to avoid a collision, Boston said. “The only thing I’m concerned about is his diving at first base,” Boston said. “We have to have him on the field. But that’s the kind of energy we’re looking for. That’s what we need out of him.” In center field, “he has the green light to kind of roam. We give him some general directions and I’ve given him the freedom to make his own judgment on where he wants to be. Turn him loose. Let him go. It’s good to see.’’ Whether Eaton’s energy level has a direct effect on the lineup is difficult to measure. What’s known is that, through four games, the Sox haven’t been beaten for lack of fight through their at-bats. If you want to credit Eaton for setting the tone at the top, go ahead. “You have an offense that feels like they can come back,’’ manager Robin Ventura said after his team fell behind 3-1 in the first inning and 7-2 after five but was never out of it. “You are one hit away or that one inning way. Guys are still getting on base and they are still battling. You like that kind of effort. They feel like they can come back.”

Native Americans lead mascot protest By TOM WITHERS CLEVELAND – As excited baseball fans, many of them wearing Cleveland’s smiling Chief Wahoo logo, headed into Progressive Field for Friday’s home opener, a smaller group stood by unable to share their en- Robert Roche thusiasm. Holding hand-painted signs that read, “We Are Not Honored,” and “Our Children Are Not Mascots,” a contingent of Native Americans and some of their supporters demonstrated against the Indians’ use of their red-faced Wahoo logo. The protesters, who have been gathering outside the ballpark’s entrances on Opening Day for years to voice their displeasure about the team’s use of the long-standing logo, stayed behind barricades as Indians fans walked by for the game against the Minnesota Twins. Robert Roche, executive director of the American Indian Education Center, is adamant the team should abolish the logo permanently. “The issue is simple,” said the 66-year-old Roche, his hair braided with white threads. “We are not mascots. I’m nobody’s mascot. My children

Inside the Cubs PHILLIES 7, CUBS 2 Tipping point: Cubs starting pitcher Travis Wood gave up a two-run homer to Chase Utley in the fifth inning to give the Phillies a 3-2 lead. Philadelphia tacked on a run in the seventh and two more in the eighth to build a five-run lead that the Cubs never threatened. On the mound: Wood surrendered four runs (three earned) in 61/3 innings and took the loss, though he struck out eight while only walking one batter. Left-hander Wesley Wright was shaky in relief. The Phillies tagged Wright for two runs on four hits. Phillies starter Roberto Hernandez last 51/3 innings and held the Cubs to two runs on three hits.

At the plate: The Cubs offense again struggled to score. They finished with only three hits and didn’t record one after the third inning. Catcher Welington Castillo put the Cubs ahead 1-0 in the second on a solo homer. Starlin Castro extended the Cubs’ lead to 2-0 in the third, scoring Darwin Barney, who reached on a single. Under the radar: The Cubs dropped to 52-47-1 in their 100 home openers at Wrigley Field. They have lost four consecutive home openers and are 2-6 in their last eight dating to 2007. – Meghan Montemurro

Sandberg, Cubs fans arrive early • MUSICK Continued from page C1 Long, long, long before the first pitch. “I was getting here at 7:30 in the morning, and I was getting poured on by the rain, and the visitors’ gate was locked,” said Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg, who played 15 seasons with the Cubs. “So I stood there and then I figured out I had to go in through the Captain Morgan Club, which was packed with fans and cameras. “So, that was my entrance to the ballpark. It was a little tough entry, but just the memories of driving up and getting close to the neighborhood and seeing the ballpark every year, I always felt the excitement when I saw the ballpark.” The Captain Morgan Club was jam-packed, but I did manage to squeeze in to the Cubby Bear at the corner of Clark and Addison after visiting Bernie’s.

There, I met Scot Gibson of Glenview and his brother-in-law, Chris Hemp of Poplar Grove, who huddled over a table of Miller Lites, tater tots, Buffalo wings and Chicago dogs. Gibson, 52, arrived at 7 a.m. to celebrate his 10th consecutive home opener. “My dad used to take me down here when I was a little kid,” Gibson said. “I’ve been watching these guys since the ’60s. I would never root for another team. “There’s no better place to watch a ballgame, anywhere, ever.” Other stadiums offer way better amenities than the 100-year-old Wrigley. However, like Sandberg, new Cubs players do not take Wrigleyville’s atmosphere for granted. Relief pitcher Justin Grimm grew up in Bristol, Va., which has a population of about 17,000. He’s gratefully adjusting to the Cubs’ behemoth fan base. “When you’re on your

way to the park and you’re driving through Wrigley, you kind of get this feeling that comes over you, like, ‘It’s go time,’ ” said Grimm, 25. “You see all the people, you start to get excited. Honestly, I can’t really describe that feeling.” It’s part expectant-father excitement and part in-memoriam bittersweet. It’s part skipping-school devotion and part since-the’60s tradition. “I love the team, I love the neighborhood,” Bonano said before heading to the park. “It’s very welcoming and open to having a party. “And if you’re going to have a party about anything, why not have a party with the team that you cry and bleed with, year after year?” After year, after year, after year … • Northwest Herald sports columnist Tom Musick can be reached at tmusick@ and on Twitter @tcmusick.

are not mascots. It mocks us as a race of people. It mocks our religion.” Roche and other organizers believe the protest is gaining support because of the growing national debate over sports mascots. The Washington Redskins have received harsh criticism for their nickname, and several colleges and high schools have made changes to their logos, mascots and nicknames. “If you’re looking at the average opening day fan, actually I see a little bit of a difference,” said Sundance, a member of the Muscogee tribe, who has been protesting on opening day since 2008. “I see that there are a lot of people who have refrained from wearing Wahoo much more than in previous opening days, but I also see that there are a lot more people who have come out with the most bigoted Wahoo that they could find.” There wasn’t much exchange between the groups in the hours leading up to the first pitch. However, a few fans yelled out derogatory comments toward the protesters, who either ignored them or disarmed them with compliments. The Indians have made Chief Wahoo less visible in recent years, even adding a “Block C” to their inventory of logos. Roche, though, said the team’s efforts to minimize Wahoo “are a facade.”

Study: Managers’ influence limited

The Cubs’ Welington Castillo breaks his bat in the fifth inning Friday against the Phillies at Wrigley Field.

GB — ½ 1½ 2 2½

• CUBS Continued from page C1 But, according to a recent study by statistician Nate Silver’s, almost every manager – 172 total – in the past 30 years has been statistically average with limited influence on team results. Of course, there are a few recent anomalies, such as former Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox and long-time manager Tony La Russa. The research suggested a manager needs to manage more than 1,000 games to get a true gauge of their capabilities. Extend the data to the past 113 years, and only 119 of 490 managers (24.3 percent) have reached that mark. As recent Cubs history has shown, managers haven’t been kept around long enough to make a definitive impact. Since 2010, the Cubs have had four different managers, including short stints by Quade (one season) and Sveum (two seasons). The last time the franchise had a manager at the helm for more than 1,000 games was Leo Durocher, who managed 1,065 games with the Cubs from 1966-72. In the franchise’s 139-year history dating to when they were the Chicago White Stockings, only four managers have reached the 1,000-plus game threshold: Durocher, Charlie Grimm (two stints between 1932-60), Frank Chance (1905-12) and Cap Anson (1879-1897). Grimm, Chance and Anson were also player-managers who had a direct, on-field opportunity to affect a game. “He’s easy to talk to,” reliever James Russell said of Renteria. “He says hello to everybody. He always has a smile on his face. The positive energy, you can kind of get a feed off of him. It’s good, especially with the young group we’ve got.” With former Cub and Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg back at Wrigley on Friday as manager of the Phillies for ballpark’s 100th home opener, visions of the fan favorite wearing the Cubbie blue in the home dugout still linger. Russell played for Sandberg in Class-A Peoria in 2007 and Double-A Tennessee in 2009 and has a unique perspective of playing for both managers. Russell credited Renteria and Sandberg’s ability to connect with players. “Obviously, there’s a difference on the back

Cubs manager Rick Renteria walks off the field Friday after switching relief pitchers in the seventh inning against the Phillies at Wrigley Field. of their baseball cards, but they’re both different in their own ways,” Russell said. “I always thought [Sandberg] would be putting on the Cubbie uniform as a manager, but things didn’t really work out and that’s how it is.” Yet history suggests Sandberg would not have made much of an impact on the Cubs’ wins and losses had he been hired at any point during the past four years. In Philadelphia, Sandberg is already receiving early-season criticism for decisions he has made. “For me, I think the leadership starts with the manager,” Sandberg said. “I just really had the players know me and me know the players and get on the same page. That’s what took place in all of spring training. I think things have gone really well and we have a good group.” For as much as some people believed Sandberg was the Cubs’ answer, history suggests he would be just another Cubs manager to get churned up and spit out. It’s Renteria’s job to prove he can be a long-term manager, and with experience and better players than the Cubs have trotted out the past few years during the rebuilding process, deliver an elusive World Series title. “I think that I’m trying to make sure we understand that we have to stay focused and grind out every game, that every play, every piece of work does matter,” Renteria said. “Every at-bat matters. Every out matters. There’s a way to approach the game, win, lose or draw.”

Thompson soars at Kraft Nabisco The ASSOCIATED PRESS RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – Lexi Thompson’s play around the greens has held her back at times in her young LPGA Tour career, lagging behind her powerful long game. On Friday in the Kraft Nabisco Championship, her putting touch carried her to the top of the leaderboard in the first major championship of the year. The 19-year-old Thompson, already a three-time winner on the tour, shot a bogey-free 8-under-par 64 at Mission Hills for a share of the lead with Se Ri Pak. “I worked extremely hard in the offseason on my short game and just trying to get my game a lot more consistent,” Thompson said. She had only 25 putts after taking 35 in a first-round 73. “I just had a little bit of speed issues yesterday,” Thompson said. “I didn’t really commit to my lines and I came up short a lot. I just went out today and picked my line and sped up my tempo a little bit and went up to it and said, ‘I’m going to knock it in.’” After experimenting with a stance close to the ball to get her eyes more over the putting line, she’s standing farther away in a more natural position. “Even as a little kid I stood far away from the ball and took the putter inside. I just went right back to

Lexi Thompson waves after a birdie on the ninth hole during the second round of the Kraft Nabisco Championship on Friday in Rancho Mirage, Calif. that,” Thompson said. “I moved farther away and just take one look at the hole and just knock it in. Hopefully.” Pak birdied the final hole for a 70 to match Thompson at 7-under 137. The 36-year-old South Korean player won the last of her five major titles in 2006 and has 25 LPGA Tour victories. “Everything has just been really solid,” Pak said. “I kept it fairways, greens, always the goal every hole. I had a lot of opportunities, but putting is not as good as yesterday. Still, just really smooth, solid round. I’m really happy about the way I finished.” Michelle Wie was a stroke back after a 71. “I’m really excited,” Wie said. “It’s fun being near the top of the

leaderboard. But try not to look forward too much. It’s a long way ‘til Sunday.” Houston Open: At Humble, Texas, Sergio Garcia has yet to finish lower than 16th in a PGA Tour event this season. The Spaniard appears well on his way to keeping that streak intact this week after posting a 7-under 65 and matching the course 36-hole record of 12 under overall after the second round of the PGA Tour event. As well as Garcia played in taking a one-shot lead over Matt Kuchar, the focus afterward was a mix of this week – with a heavy dose of attention turned toward next week’s Masters. Garcia has eight PGA Tour wins in his career, but the 34-year-old world No. 8 – once thought to be Tiger Woods’ challenger for the top spot in the world – is still in search of his first major championship. Garcia and Kuchar will be paired with Matt Jones on Saturday after tournament officials decided to send threesomes off both tees early in the morning in an attempt to beat expected rain in the afternoon. The windy conditions limited first-round co-leader Bill Haas to a 2-over 74. Charley Hoffman, the other first-round leader, fell to 3 under par overall after a 4-over 76. Phil Mickelson shot a 2-under 70 and is 6 under overall, six shots back of Garcia in ninth.

Badgers, Wildcats: Opposites collide By EDDIE PELLS The Associated Press ARLINGTON, Texas – They play the same game, although they come at it from opposite sides of the court. Kentucky has a coach labeled a renegade, a rotating stable of McDonald’s All-Americans and sky high expectations every year. Wisconsin has a coach who has stayed firmly in one state for three decades, a lineup filled with juniors and seniors and an aw-shucks attitude about its first trip to the Final Four in more than a decade. They meet Saturday in the national semifinals – the One-and-Done Wildcats (28-10) two wins from the program’s ninth national title and the Badgers (30-7) making their first trip this far in the tournament since 2000. “Frank Sinatra, wasn’t that the song? We did it our way?” Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan said. “Everybody’s doing it their way. If you’re a coach and here’s the landscape, you do it the best way you can.” In his 13th season at Wisconsin, Ryan is at his first Final Four at this level after winning four national titles at Division III Wisconsin-Platteville. Asked about the biggest difference between getting this far at Division III and Division I, Ryan espoused the virtues of enjoying a good doughnut, diet soda and a crossword puzzle before the big game, as opposed to heading to a room filled with reporters who want

to dissect his every move. The trappings of big-time college basketball have not changed him. “Every place I’ve been, wherever I was an employee, [the paycheck] always went into the account,” Ryan said. “My wife gives me $150 a month as an allowance, whether I need it or not. I don’t get caught up in all that other stuff.” That is more the domain of the man he’ll coach against, John Calipari, whose news conferences at the NCAA tournament usually grow more prickly as the Wildcats make their way deeper through the bracket. He is labeled by some as a pariah, the primary exploiter

of the “One-and-Done” rule – really an NBA rule – that so many feel are ruining the game. Calipari attempted to put a different spin on it Friday. “Succeed and Proceed,” he called it, adding that the T-shirts with said slogan are at the printer. “When you’re changing the whole direction of a family, does it matter if it’s one or four years, unless you’re ingrained in, this is how it has to be?” he said. “That’s why I don’t read it, don’t care. All I do is, let me take care of these kids.” Nobody at Kentucky is complaining, although they certainly were earlier this season. Led by lottery pick-to-be Julius Randle and the Harrison twins, Aaron and Andrew, Calipari recruited six McDonald’s All-Americans to the bluegrass this season. The national title and an undefeated season were expected to be mere stopping points for these kids on the way to bigger things. But it was way more complicated than that as recently as March 1, after the team had lost ugly in back-to-back games against Arkansas and South Carolina to fall to 21-8. Calipari tweaked something – he’ll reveal exactly what when the season is over – and the march to the Final Four began. Never in the recruiting process or the season has the NBA been brought up, he insists. “It’s the elephant in the room that we don’t need to talk about,” he said.

Wisconsin leans on Jackson By GENARO C. ARMAS The Associated Press ARLINGTON, Texas – It can be difficult to make a name for yourself in the Big Ten when your father is one of the best players to ever suit up in the league. Well, Wisconsin point guard Traevon Jackson has one up on Dad now. Jim Jackson was a two-time All-American at Ohio State, but he never played in the Final Four like his son will do Saturday night when the Badgers (30-7) face Kentucky (28-10). “He’s always had to fight to make his own name,” Wisconsin assistant coach Gary Close said Friday about the younger Jackson. “And yet the great thing about it, he’s forged his own little niche on a team that’s in the Final Four, and running the show and really playing good, winning basketball.” The elder Jackson is an analyst for the Big Ten Network. He posed with pride with his son for a picture before Wisconsin’s practice Friday, then helped interview him on the air from AT&T Stadium. Not quite an intimate setting for a reunion, although Traevon Jackson welcomed the opportunity during such a hectic week. Father and son haven’t seen each other a lot during basketball season. “This is one of the first times I have seen him all year. He has been working a lot,” the point guard said. “I am just excited to actually see him and spend some time with him.” Two months ago, it didn’t seem like such a meeting would happen in the Final Four. The Badgers limped through a 1-5 stretch at midseason, and Jackson’s struggles were

Wisconsin’s Traevon Jackson works out with his teammates Friday in Arlington, Texas. part of the problem. His assist-to-turnover ratio dropped to 1.06, while he shot just 37 percent during the stretch. Jackson’s struggle became a trending social media topic among Badgers fans. His decision-making was questioned. But Ryan stuck with his go-to guy in the clutch. Jackson, a junior, had experience coming through in key spots – like when he hit a pull-up jumper from 10 feet with 2.1 seconds left in overtime to lift Wisconsin over Michigan State 60-58 on Feb. 9. He hit three game-tying or winning jumpers in his first year at the point as a sophomore. Close said it was only a matter of time for the hard-working Jackson to get back on track. “You won’t find a guy that works any harder ... and guys like that can get through stretches where they may not play very well,” Close said. “They have the confidence of ‘Hey, I put my time in, this is just a stretch where I’ll play my way out of it.’ ”

Concordia Chicago junior shortstop Steve Zubrzycki, a Marian Central graduate from McHenry, is the No. 2 hitter in the batting order this season for the nationally ranked Cougars.

Marian grad Zubrzycki strengthens Concordia First-year assistant coach Mike Stawski’s duties for Concordia University Chicago’s baseball team include pitching coach and head assistant coach. Stawski’s additional work as the team’s strength and conditioning coach has had a big impact on the program, including with Marian Central graduate Steve Zubrzycki. “I came in as a skinny little guy,” said Zubrzycki, a junior from McHenry who entered college at 135 pounds. “I never knew what to eat, when to eat or how much of it to eat.” Working with Stawski has changed Zubrzycki’s body and altered his game on the field for the Cougars (14-2), who are ranked seventh in Division III in the poll this week. This offseason, Zubrzycki said he gained 13 pounds while working on his nutrition and sculpting his body. He now weighs 160 pounds. “Steve has definitely worked hard in the weight room,” Concordia head coach Adam Smith said. “He’s a lot stronger this year.” After starting 41 games last season at third base for a team that lost in an NCAA regional championship game, Zubrzycki is batting .328 with a .423 on-base percentage, 13 RBIs and a team-high 13 stolen bases this season. Zubrzycki said the added strength has helped him drive more balls through the infield as the team’s new No. 2 hitter. He started last season batting ninth in the order. “He’s been a real table setter for us,” Smith said. Zubrzycki began the season at third base again before Smith flipped the junior and shortstop Carlos Olavarria after five games. “Steve is a more natural shortstop,” Smith said. Zubrzycki, who played shortstop throughout high school, welcomed the change. “It only took me a couple of games to get familiar with it again,” he said. “It’s second nature to me.” In the team’s home-opening doubleheader sweep Monday of Concordia Wisconsin, Zubrzycki went 4 for 10 with three RBIs, three runs and four stolen bases. The wins pushed the Cougars’ victory streak to 10 games in a row. The Cougars hope their early success translates into an opportunity to advance to the NCAA D-III championships next month in Appleton, Wis. “[Last year] was a great experience,” Zubrzycki said. “I’ll never forget it. But we’re never going to be satisfied. We have a blue-collar work ethic. We’re all jokesters and we like to have fun, but when it comes time to work, we’re 100 percent focused.” Records fall for Freeman: Cary-Grove grad Josh Freeman is at it again, this time in the outdoor season. The sophomore thrower at D-I Southern Illinois was named the Missouri Valley Conference Male Field Athlete of the Week on Tuesday.

ON CAMPUS Barry Bottino At SIU’s Bill Cornell Spring Classic last weekend in Carbondale, Freeman broke the school’s 30-year-old outdoor shot put record on his first throw of the season, which measured 62 feet, 8¾ inches and won the event. The throw also broke the MVC outdoor record. The SIU record formerly belonged to Freeman’s SIU throws coach, John Smith. During the indoor season, he broke Smith’s school record as well. Freeman’s best throw this spring ranks sixth nationally. On the first day of the two-day meet, Smith set a personal record in the discus (167-2) to finish second. Huntley grad at her best: University of Illinois softball catcher Jenna Mychko (Huntley) homered and drove in three runs Tuesday to lift the Illini to a 7-4 win against Illinois State. Mychko’s 2-for-3 performance at the plate allowed her to reach career highs in home runs (three) and RBIs (15) for the Illini (17-13). The senior is batting .284 this season while starting 27 games. Wrestling wrapup: Crystal Lake Central grad Austin Marsden, a sophomore 285-pound wrestler at Oklahoma State, earned his first career All-America honor at last month’s NCAA championships in Oklahoma City. Marsden, who entered the tournament as the No. 11 seed, finished 3-3 in the tournament to take eighth place in his weight class. Two of his wins came against higher seeds, while his three losses were by a total of four points. Marsden was the Big 12 Conference champion in his class and finished with a 23-9 record. Cary-Grove grad Paul Rands, a junior at Navy, qualified for nationals for the first time but suffered an injury that forced him to withdraw from his opening match at the 5:36 mark against Ohio State’s Nick Heflin, the No. 1 seed at 197 pounds. Rands also was forced to forfeit his consolation bout against 16th-seeded Alex Polizzi of Northwestern. Rands finished the season 23-11. Blackburn basher Chamberlain: Sophomore softball player Mary Chamberlain is hitting a team-best .404 this season for D-III Blackburn College’s softball team. The Johnsburg grad leads the team with 23 hits, a .491 slugging percentage and a .460 onbase percentage. The Beavers (4-14) have won three of the past nine games after a 1-8 start. • Barry Bottino writes a weekly column and a blog about local college athletes for the Northwest Herald.

Gators, Huskies meet again; more at stake By JIM O’CONNELL The Associated Press

Connecticut guard Shabazz Napier practices Friday in Arlington, Texas. Connecticut plays Florida on Saturday in the Final Four.

ARLINGTON, Texas – The last time Florida lost there were still 23 shopping days until Christmas. The Gators have won every game since that loss Dec. 2 at Connecticut. The teams meet again Saturday in the Final Four. They both have changed, and they both have stayed the same. “They are high right now. They are playing great basketball. They are sharing the basketball. They are all playing hard. They haven’t lost since then. It will be really tough,” Huskies forward DeAndre Daniels said Friday. “We feel great. ... I feel like nobody is playing harder than us right now. We are just out there having fun and not playing for ourselves, but playing for each other.” Connecticut, the seventh seed in the East Regional, has won nine of its

past 11 with both losses to Louisville. That’s no 30-game winning streak, but it’s enough to have the Huskies two wins from a fourth national championship and the first under a coach besides Jim Calhoun. Florida, the tournament’s overall No. 1 seed, is looking for its third national title, the first two coming in consecutive years under coach Billy Donovan. “These guys understand what goes into playing and competing. They’re really good as it relates to scouting report and preparation,” Donovan said. “I think they understand how hard they have to play, how well they have to play defensively together, offensively together.” Shabazz Napier hit a buzzer-beating jumper from the free throw line to give Connecticut (30-8) the 65-64 victory in Storrs, Conn., four months ago. The dramatic win didn’t exactly

propel the Huskies, as they lost three of their next five games. Napier was named the American Athletic Conference player of the year and was a first-team All-American. He took advantage of a freak play to hand the Gators (36-2) one of their two losses – the other was to Wisconsin, another Final Four team. Now Connecticut, just like that day before winter even started, has a second chance at Florida. The Gators were different that day in that freshman guard Kasey Hill was out with an ankle injury and freshman forward Chris Walker was clearing up eligibility issues. Scottie Wilbekin, the do-everything guard who was chosen Southeastern Conference player of the year, was playing in his third game of the season after being suspended for the first four. He had 15 points but injured an ankle with 3:01 to play.

The cost of owning a home in McHenry County has gone up 19 percent since late 2012 as interest rates and prices increase.

Costs increasing Homeownership becoming more expensive in area By BRETT ROWLAND CRYSTAL LAKE – The cost of owning a home in McHenry County has gone up 19 percent since late 2012 as interest rates and home prices increase. The median home price in the county has increased 8 percent, from $124,833 in the fourth quarter of 2012 to $135,000 in the fourth quarter of 2013, according to a recent report from RealtyTrac, a real estate information company based in California. During the same period, the estimated monthly house payment for a median-priced three-bedroom home in the county jumped 19 percent, rising from $539 in 2012 to $643 in 2013. That’s slightly below the national average increase of 21 percent in the 325 U.S. counties included in the report, RealtyTrac said. Other U.S. cities are seeing similar trends. “A potent combination of rapidly rising home prices and the oftenoverlooked but significant uptick in interest rates in the second half of 2013 caused the monthly cost of owning a home using traditional financing to jump substantially in many markets over the last year,” Daren Blomquist, vice president at RealtyTrac, said in a statement. The estimated monthly house payment included mortgage, insurance, taxes, maintenance and subtracted the estimated income tax benefit. It assumed a 20 percent down payment, a 30-year fixed interest rate of 4.46 percent for homes purchased in the fourth quarter of 2013, and a 3.35 percent 30-year fixed interest rate for homes purchased in the fourth quarter of 2012, according to RealtyTrac. Costs could continue to increase as the local housing market recovers, said broker Sue Miller of Coldwell Banker Honig-Bell in McHenry. “As values go up, so will the cost of owning a home,” she said. Other factors, such as property taxes, push costs up as well, Miller said. Mortgage rates have risen about a full percentage point since hitting record lows about a year ago. However, it’s still expected to be cheaper to pay for a mortgage than to pay rent this year in McHenry County. The same

In Will County, rental costs are expected to be less expensive than mortgage costs this year, according to RealtyTrac’s data. “The monthly cost of owning a home is still less than renting in the majority of markets, but the cost of financed homeownership is becoming dangerously disconnected with stillstagnant median incomes, driven not by shoddy underwriting practices this time around but by investors and other cash buyers who are not tethered to the typical affordability constraints,” Blomquist said. Many would-be buyers are stuck renting, Miller said. Some don’t have enough saved for a down payment, while others lost homes during the housing crisis and won’t be able to buy for another 2 to 7 years, Miller said. “Renters are paying a premium because they are a captive market,” she said. In McHenry County, the average minimum household income required to qualify for a median-priced home in the fourth quarter of 2013 was $30,857, up from $25,865 in the same period in 2012. The average minimum household income needed to rent

McHenry County’s medium household income is $76,683, according to RealtyTrac. Some of the stringent lending standards imposed after the crisis have been eased, said Eric Schroeder, president of Mortgage Capital Group in Crystal Lake. Some of the company’s clients are buying bigger homes and choosing to rent out the homes they have outgrown. “Things are getting easier,” he said. “I’m seeing a lot of first-time landlords because a lot of people are surprised they can qualify for two homes.” The potential for rising prices and rising mortgage interest rates can create a sense of urgency for buyers, said Rob Schaid, managing broker/ owner of Re/Max Plaza in McHenry. “They know the same house could cost more money if they wait,” he said. “That’s what we’re seeing a lot of in the market. They know this is the time because they see the trend in prices and interest rates.”

Report names top towns for home buyers By BRETT ROWLAND Huntley, Algonquin and Lake in the Hills have been ranked among the state’s top places for home buyers, according to a study by NerdWallet. NerdWallet, which offers pricecomparison tools for researching dozens of financial products, looked at home ownership rates, owner costs, median income and population change from 2010 to 2012 in 121 Illinois towns to come up with a list of the top 20 towns for homebuyers in the state. Huntley, which includes the 55-and-older Sun City community, took the top spot with an overall score of 93.8. It was followed by Plain-

McHENRY – Rosecrance, which offers treatment for mental health and substance use disorders, is hosting open house events at two new locations McHenry County. The first open house will be from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at 422 Tracy Court, Crystal Lake. The second event will be from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Thursday at 4501 Prime Parkway, McHenry. “Rosecrance is honored to put down permanent roots in Crystal Lake and McHenry to meet the needs of residents of our county,” said Chris Gleason, director of Rosecrance McHenry County. “We are particularly eager to share information about our expanded substance abuse treatment services. Rosecrance has a long track record of providing quality care in the addiction treatment field, and we’re grateful to be able to bring that deep experience to McHenry County.” The new offices will provide outpatient services for children, teens, adults and families with mental health and substance use disorders. Psychiatric services and medication support are offered at both. For information, call Rosecrance McHenry County at 815-363-6132.

field, Oswego, South Elgin, Romeoville and Lockport. Algonquin came in seventh with an overall score of 75.1 and Lake in the Hills was ninth with a score of 73.7. Bartlett and Tinley Park were ranked eighth and 10th, respectively. The report, which was based on U.S. Census data, excluded towns with less than 20,000 people and those with higher than average crime rates, said NerdWallet analyst Maggie Clark. Huntley’s high home ownership rate of 93.5 percent and 12.4 percent growth rate from 2010 to 2012 helped put it at the top of the list, even though it had the second highest homeowner costs as a percentage of

household income (34.5 percent) of the top 20 towns. Morton Grove had the highest homeowner costs as a percentage of household income at 36.9 percent. Algonquin and Lake in the Hills were 26.6 percent and 28.4 percent, respectively. Huntley had a median monthly income of $5,877 and median selected monthly homeowner costs of 2,025, according to the NerdWallet report published last month. By comparison, Plainfield’s median monthly household income was $9,303 (the highest of the top 20) and its median selected monthly homeowner costs were $2,613 (second among the top 20 behind Northfield at $2,896).

Holder: DOJ investigating high-speed trading The Department of Justice is investigating high-frequency stock trading to see if any of the practices violate insider trading laws, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Friday. Brokerage firms use highfrequency trading to get a jump on their competitors. Powerful computers analyze market information and then execute buy and sell orders for stocks within a fraction of a second. The practice has come under increasing scrutiny in recent months. The FBI confirmed this week that it has been investigating high-frequency trading firms for about a year.

Steady, not spectacular: U.S. jobs up 192K in March By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER The Associated Press

Wall Street orders up GrubHub in IPO By JOSEPH PISANI The Associated Press NEW YORK – Wall Street appears to be in the mood for takeout. Investors sent shares of GrubHub Inc. up more than 30 percent Friday in an initial public offering that gave the online food ordering service a market capitalization of nearly $2.7 billion. The company is one of four making their debuts as publicly traded companies Friday. The others include health data service IMS Health Inc., which raised about $1.3 billion in its return to the market. All four companies have risen by double-digit percentages in morning trading. The market for IPOs has been hot so far this year, especially for companies in the cloud software and biotech industries. Next week is expected to be busy, with about 15 companies expected to debut, including auto lender Ally Financial Inc., which has been under government control since the financial crisis, and hotel chain La Quinta Holdings Inc. GrubHub and its rivals are

changing the way people order takeout from restaurants. Instead of calling a restaurant, people can order meals online or through a few taps on a smartphone app, and can search through many restaurants at once by cuisine or other specifications. GrubHub makes money by taking a percentage of each order. The company doesn’t say how much it charges, but restaurant owners have said it’s about 15 percent. The more that a restaurant pays, the higher it appears in GrubHub’s listings. The company also owns Seamless, another online takeout company. GrubHub and Seamless merged in August, and both still operate separately. After the merger, the company named itself GrubHub Seamless, but has since dropped Seamless from its name. It also owns and MenuPages, which posts menus from restaurants across the country. GrubHub said it had revenue of $137.1 million in 2013, up 67 percent from the year before. The Chicago company raised $192.5 million after pricing more than 7.4 mil-

WASHINGTON – U.S. employers added jobs at a solid pace in March and hired more in January and February than previously thought. Friday’s government report sent a reassuring signal that the economy withstood a harsh winter that had slowed growth. The economy gained 192,000 jobs in March, the Labor Department said Friday, slightly below February’s revised total of 197,000. Employers added a combined 37,000 more jobs in January and February than previously estimated. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.7 percent. But a half-million Americans started looking for work last month, and most of them found jobs. The increase in job-seekers is a sign that they were more optimistic about their prospects. “We’re back to where we were before the weather got bad,” said John Canally, economist at LPL Financial. “It’s a nice, even report that suggests the labor market is expanding.” March’s job gain nearly matched last year’s average monthly total, suggesting that the job market has mostly recovered from the previous months’ severe winter weather. The March report included one milestone: More than six years after the Great Recession began, private employers have finally regained all the jobs lost to the recession. Businesses and nonprofits shed 8.8 million jobs in the downturn; they’ve since hired 8.9 million. Still, the population has grown over that time, leaving the unemployment rate elevated. And many of the new jobs pay less than the ones they replaced. Last month, most of the hiring was in lowerpaying industries: Temporary help agencies added 28,500 positions. Hotels and restaurants added 33,100, and retailers added 21,300. Higher-paying positions didn’t fare as well. Manufacturers shed 1,000 jobs, the first such drop since July. And professional and technical services, which includes

accountants, engineers and information technology workers, added just 10,400. The proportion of Americans in the labor force – those either working or seeking work – has rebounded this year after steady declines since the recession officially ended in June 2009. Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, noted that the labor force increased by 1.5 million in the January-March quarter after shrinking by 500,000 last year. Encouragingly, the percentage of Americans age 16 or older who were working reached 58.9 percent in March – its highest point since 2009. Many analysts are optimistic that growth will pick up this year after a slow start. The economy likely expanded at just a 1.5 percent to 2 percent annual rate in the first three months of this year. But most economists expect it to rebound in the spring and summer to a 3 percent pace in 2014, which would be the best showing since 2005. Americans have reduced their debts and benefited from rising home prices and higher stock markets. Their improved finances should translate into more spending. And a major drag on growth – federal spending cuts and tax increases – will fade this year, likely boosting the economy. Budget battles and government shutdowns that have eroded business and consumer confidence since the recession ended are unlikely this year. The greater stability in Washington has helped business grow for Advanced Technology Services, a Peoriabased company that maintains machine tools, robotics and computer systems for industrial companies such as Caterpillar, Honeywell and Honda. The company has about 120 job openings for factory floor technicians, network engineers and information technology professionals. It has 2,700 employees in the United States and 300 more in Mexico and the United Kingdom. Jeff Owens, president of ATS, said the company’s clients appear more confident about economic growth and more willing to invest in machinery.

Henry David Thoreau, a writer who, inter alia, railed against taxes, said, “A simple and independent mind does not toil at the bidding of any prince.” Here is a deal in which an opponent’s bidding helps declarer to ind the winning line of play. South is in three no-trump. West leads the spade queen. What should declarer do? When West’s one-spade opening was passed around to South, he made a takeout double. West rebid in his second ive-card suit. Then North bravely advanced with three clubs. And South took a shot at three no-trump, knowing it was extremely unlikely that this contract would fail and ive clubs would succeed. Declarer starts with six top tricks: two spades, two hearts and two clubs. If he can play the clubs without loss, he will be home. But who has the club queen? There are only 15 highcard points missing, which might lead South to think West holds that key card. However, West’s bidding suggests that East is the favorite

because West has so many more spades and diamonds than East. To try to cover all bases, declarer should lead the club jack from his hand. First, if West has queen-doubleton, he might cover. And in case West is void of clubs, South is unblocking the suit. Here, when West discards, declarer wins with dummy’s king, runs the club nine, plays a club to his 10, and cashes the club ace. Then South leads a heart to dummy’s ace and cashes the last club. With two major-suit winners still nestling in his hand, the contract is home.

TODAY - There is much activity going on behind the scenes. People are starting to take notice of your talent. Your innovative ideas are in great demand, but you must act quickly, or you may miss out on a valuable opportunity. Move ahead with confidence and courage. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Being presumptuous will lead to trouble. Ask before you volunteer someone for something. Avoid complaints by doing your share and offering positive affirmation. If you are a team player, you will bypass controversy. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You could certainly improve your financial situation by considering a personal or business partnership. Take full advantage of any favorable circumstances that arise; fate is in your corner. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Don’t blow your budget by buying unnecessary, expensive items for your home. Concentrate on a pending legal matter to ensure that you are getting your fair share. Be honest about your motives. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Curb your tendency toward rash speech when dealing with friends or family members. If you force your opinions on others, you will cause hurt feelings and bruised egos. It would be best to simply listen and observe. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You will be praised for your professional attitude regarding changes in the workplace. Even if you have reservations, keep up with your responsibilities and take any new concepts in stride. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone has been less than honest with you. Don’t fall for false promises or lame excuses. Be true to your beliefs and goals. A relationship will undergo a sudden change. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You have all the necessary ingredients for success. Be careful not to alienate your peers by being overbearing or aggressive. Avoid tension by being cooperative and congenial. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- A trip or fact-finding mission will bring you into contact with influential individuals. Your superb memory will serve you well, enabling you to converse with someone with plenty to share. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Don’t rush into a financial decision. Proceed carefully, taking time to investigate any contracts or documents that could indicate the nature of the risk you’re facing. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Before you make accusations regarding a difficult situation, take a close look at your own actions. Consider that you may be just as much to blame as the other party. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Take positive action for a cause you believe in. Don’t neglect your health or your financial concerns. Put greater effort into making your home convenient, efficient and comfortable. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- A friend or partner may have reservations regarding something that you’re planning. While the possibilities may be very attractive, pay attention to the advice offered. Thorough research is a must.
