Common Core gets test run

Says Ill. should make consolidation easier By KEVIN P. CRAVER Eliminating barriers to consolidation will be the best way to pare down the state’s almost 7,000 units of local government, a commission created by a local lawmaker has concluded. The 90-page report by the Local Government Consolidation Commission advises that successful efforts to eliminate layers of government must be locally-driven and not mandated by the state. The report submitted to state lawmakers last week also advises that in many cases, consolidation may not guarantee tax relief as much as governments sharing resources. But the best thing Springfield can do is to review its laws to make sure that, at the very least, every type of taxing body in the state has a legal mechanism to dissolve or consolidate that does not contain illogical barriers, the report concludes. “While the Commission recognizes the potential to achieve greater economies of scale and to realize a reduction in costs if local governments work to cooperate and consolidate on a case-by-case basis, this report’s recommendations mainly aim to

With the rise in overdoses, heroin spreads misery across U.S. The ASSOCIATED PRESS On a beautiful Sunday last October, Detective Dan Douglas stood in a suburban Minnesota home and looked down at a lifeless 20-year-old – a needle mark in his arm, a syringe in his pocket. It didn’t take long for Douglas to realize that the man, fresh out of

that heroin is no longer limited to the back alleys of American life. Cocaine, painkillers and tranquilizers are all used more than heroin, and the latest federal overdose statistics show that in 2010 the vast majority of drug overdose deaths involved pharmaceuticals, with heroin accounting for less than 10 percent.

But heroin’s escalation is troubling. Last month, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder called the 45 percent increase in heroin overdose deaths between 2006 and 2010 an “urgent and growing public health crisis.” In 2007, there were an estimated 373,000 heroin users in the U.S. By 2012, the number was

Northwest Herald Web Poll Question The Northwest Herald invites you to voice your opinion. Log on to www. and vote on today’s poll question:

LGMC to celebrate 10th year Many journalists aren’t what you’d call “joiners.” We’re skeptics, and group activities make us itchy. It’s not that we don’t like people, we dislike groupthink. Years of pounding down doors to get information also have made some of us prickly or abrasive compared with normal people. When someone mentions betterment seminars or enrichment courses, we get visions of trust falls, motivational speakers in bad neckties, endless clichés said without irony – raising your game, thinking outside the box, along with discussions about the GPS coordinates of someone’s cheese. We expect awkward team exercises reminiscent of kids’ birthday party games – Pin the Core Value on the CEO. No thanks, I’ll be hiding under the Brand-Your-Own Cupcake bar. So there was some apprehension in 2010 when told that I’d be the Northwest Herald’s next candidate for the 2011 graduating class of Leadership of Greater McHenry County – a commitment for a good several months. Many Northwest Herald managers had attended over the years, including editor Jason Schaumburg and Dan McCaleb, group editor of Shaw Media’s suburban group. I’m not 12 anymore. There are things grownups do whether they like it or not. I tried to keep the best attitude I could without completely betraying my naturally dubious disposition. Long story short, I enjoyed my experience with LGMC and took away some lessons that I don’t expect to forget. Even better, I met some terrific people across the local, professional spectrum who are leaders in different ways. Next year, the 10th graduating class of LGMC will assemble. Since its inception and as of July, 314 individuals will have graduated from the program designed to inspire local leaders and open their eyes to issues facing McHenry County. It’s not indoctrination; it’s

awareness. Marcy Piekos, executive director for LGMC, said the program arose from a combination of business leaders, McHenry County College officials and political leaders who recognized a need for more servant leadership and a network of leaders from across the county. “Mike Easley [CEO of Centegra Health System] was really the catalyst,” Piekos said. Piekos said McHenry County had strong civic organizations and many volunteers, but they often were operating in silos, and there wasn’t much communication among them. In addition to inspiring community leaders, it would be great if there was a communication network among them. There are generally about 30 participants in each class – professionals from a wide range of disciplines and the age range varies by decades. The effort is paying off in individual development and across McHenry County communities as LGMC graduates are taking the theory into action. “Sixty percent [of graduates] at any given time are actively involved in the community – either volunteering or actively serving on nonprofit boards,” Piekos said. “Almost every major board has at least one alumn, if not more.” Throw a rock at any major civic event in McHenry County, and you’ll probably hit an LGMC alumnus. LGMC didn’t invent leadership in McHenry County, nor volunteering. There are plenty of key are leaders and volunteers who came about their passions in other ways and still do, but what LGMC is doing is making sure that new community leaders continue to emerge.

“The people we’re looking for as a candidate are people who are in leadership roles or are emerging leaders,” Piekos said. “We want people who are committed to the community and actually value volunteerism.” When LGMC operatives talk about “networking,” they don’t mean it in the same terms as the Chamber of Commerce. If you’re looking at LGMC as a way to gather new real estate clients or business customers, you’ve come to the wrong place. LGMC continues to communicate with alumni in a variety of ways and makes them aware of nonprofits who need board members or other specific needs sometimes fulfilled on Lend a Hand Day, when alumni help perform remodeling work at area nonprofits. But the side benefits for participants are building some stronger leadership skills, gaining information on how governments and nonprofits work from the inside out and hearing from key leaders directly on curriculum days focused on topics including education, local government and law enforcement. Piekos says she often gets feedback from alumni about their increased level of awareness. “Now, when I read the newspaper, I know who these people are and many of them I can call and talk to them,” she said, summarizing alumni comments. Plans are in the works to celebrate LGMC’s 10th anniversary as organizers are in the process of recruiting applicants for next year’s class. The deadline to apply is May 1.

Afghans vote in droves despite Taliban threat The ASSOCIATED PRESS KABUL, Afghanistan – Millions of Afghans defied Taliban threats and rain Saturday, underscoring their enormous expectations from an election that comes as the country’s wobbly government prepares to face down a ferocious insurgency largely on its own. With combat forces from the U.S.-led coalition winding down a 13-year presence and the mercurial Hamid Karzai stepping aside, the country’s new leader will find an altered landscape as he replaces the only president Afghans have known since the Taliban were ousted in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks. But for some progress, particularly with women’s rights, the country’s situation is inauspicious, especially with its poor security and battered economy. Yet despite spiraling carnage and grave disappointments, Afghans by the millions crowded mosque courtyards and lined up at schools to vote, telling a war-weary world they want their voices heard. Nazia Azizi, a 40-year-old housewife, was first in line at a school in eastern Kabul. “I have suffered so much from the fighting and I want prosperity and security in Afghan-

Afghan voters lined up for blocks at polling stations nationwide on Saturday, defying a threat of violence by the Taliban to cast ballots in what promises to be the nation’s first democratic transfer of power. istan. That is why I have come here to cast my vote,” she said. “I hope that the votes that we are casting will be counted and that there will be no fraud in this election.” Partial results could come as early as Sunday, but final results were not expected for a week or more. International combat troops are supposed to depart by the end of the year, leaving Afghan security forces – not completely battle-tested and plagued with insurgents even among their ranks – to fight alone against what is likely to

be an intensified campaign by the Taliban to regain power. A security agreement with the United States would allow thousands of foreign troops to remain in the country to continue training security forces after 2014. Karzai – perhaps trying to shake off his image as a creation of the Americans – has refused to sign it, but all eight presidential candidates say they will. In congratulating Afghanistan on the election, U.S. President Barack Obama said it represented “another important milestone in Afghans

taking full responsibility for their country as the United States and our partners draw down our forces.” “These elections are critical to securing Afghanistan’s democratic future, as well as continued international support, and we look to the Afghan electoral bodies to carry out their duties in the coming weeks,” Obama said in a statement. Secretary of State John Kerry said the “vote demonstrates how committed the Afghan people are to protecting and advancing their democracy.” He added that the United States “remains ready to work with the next president of Afghanistan.” In general, there do not appear to be major policy differences toward the West among the front-runners: Abdullah Abdullah, Karzai’s top rival in the last election; Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, an academic and former World Bank official; and Zalmai Rassoul, a former foreign minister. A runoff is widely expected since none is likely to get the majority needed for an outright victory. All eight also preach against fraud and corruption and vow to improve security, while they do differ on other issues such as the country’s border dispute with Pakistan.

Surging heroin deaths in Ill. draw alarm, ire By JIM SUHR The Associated Press ST. LOUIS – Some states, including Illinois, are reporting a rise in heroin use as many addicts shift from more costly and harder-to-get prescription opiates to this cheaper alternative. A look at what’s happening in Illinois: THE PROBLEM: Coroners from the Chicago area to St. Louis’ Illinois suburbs say heroin overdose deaths have spiked in recent years, given the relative cheapness, purity, potency and broad availability of the drug. “We have to firmly get out the message that heroin is a highly addictive drug that will kill you,” said Richard Jorgensen, coroner of suburban Chicago’s DuPage County, where the number of heroin deaths has nearly doubled since 2011. THE NUMBERS: Citing death certificates, the Illinois Department of Public Health

says the number of accidental heroin-related deaths statewide climbed from 95 in 2008 to 140 by 2010, the last year such totals are available. In Cook County, the state’s most populous, the medical examiner’s office says heroin in 2013 accounted for 224 deaths, or 60 percent of the 377 total opiate-linked deaths. Figures for other years are not available because the county only began testing specifically for heroin last year. In DuPage County, heroin deaths that numbered in the 20s each year from 2007 through 2011 spiked to 43 in 2012 and 46 last year, said Jorgensen, a surgeon who took office in December 2012. Jorgensen partly blames his turf’s location: The county is a short drive to Chicago along the Eisenhower Expressway, what locals have come to call “The Heroin Highway.” “It’s easy for suburban kids to get on the Eisenhower and within a half hour have

available, cheap heroin,” Jorgensen said. In Madison County, near St. Louis, coroner Steve Nonn said last year’s 23 heroin deaths were more than twothirds higher than the seven in 2009. “And we’re not even talking about the number of people addicted to this drug,” Nonn said. SOLUTIONS: The Illinois House is forming a task force expected to hold four Chicago-area public hearings this spring about heroin. DuPage County is funneling $100,000 into heroin-prevention efforts. In Madison County and throughout the St. Louis area, law enforcement have tried enticing heroin users into treatment and expunging their records if they stay clean. The region’s federal, county and local authorities have hosted town hall meetings at high school gyms, warning about heroin’s addictiveness and deadliness.

The Quincy Herald-Whig reported that 21-year-old Caleb Veihl must register as a sex offender as part of his sentence in Adams County. Veihl pleaded guilty in February to a charge of aggravated criminal sexual assault.

CHICAGO – A northern Illinois environmental group is getting a $50,000 grant to help restore habitat for waterfowl and marsh birds. The funding for the Putnam County project comes from the Migratory Bird Conservation Commission. The grant was approved March 26. The Wetlands Initiative applied for the grant for the Oak Ridge Wetland Restoration at Hennepin and Hopper lakes. Its project involves restoring 70 acres of wetlands and surrounding savanna and prairie within the Sue and Wes Dixon Waterfowl Refuge.

Little evidence Year of pain, joy for bombing victim execution drugmakers face threats Symbol of resilience after deadly Boston Marathon bombing By MICHELLE R. SMITH The Associated Press

ing they can keep buying the drugs they need to put condemned inmates to death. “If these are the types of threats that the departments are hearing and they’re not providing the information to back it up, it’s just sort of irresponsible and playing on people’s fear,” said Jen Moreno, an attorney at the University of California-Berkeley who has represented death row inmates. “It’s using the fear of something tragic and horrible that happened before. It’s a sort of fear mongering.” As major drugmakers, many based in Europe, have stopped selling pentobarbital and other substances used in lethal injections to U.S. corrections agencies because they oppose the death penalty, Texas and other states are increasingly forced to rely on compounding pharmacies for the drugs. Years of protests and public relations campaigns by anti-death penalty advocates have made many of these pharmacies wary of selling execution drugs because of the negative publicity that often follows.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS DALLAS – Texas prison officials have offered scant evidence to support their claim that pharmacies that supply the state with execution drugs would be in danger of violence if their identities were made public. If those officials are investigating the threats, including a suggestion a truck bomb could blow up such a pharmacy, as a serious risk to the safety of the pharmacies or their employees, they refuse to acknowledge doing so. The Associated Press could find no evidence that any such investigations are underway in Texas, and police in the community where one such pharmacy is located said they are not concerned. In neighboring Oklahoma, the attorney general said Thursday he was investigating such a threat, but several other law enforcement agencies told the AP his office has never mentioned it. Instead, anti-death penalty advocates believe Texas and other states are trumping up the possibility of violence to avoid having to disclose the names of suppliers, ensur-

CARLISLE, Mass. – The year since Jeff Bauman was pushed in a wheelchair from the Boston Marathon, his legs ravaged and his face ashen, has been marked by pain and difficulty but also by triumphs: He’s learned to walk on new prosthetic legs, he’s gotten engaged and he’s an expectant father. Bauman became one of the most recognizable and powerful symbols of Boston’s resilience after the April 15 attacks – immortalized in an Associated Press photo that shows three rescuers rushing him from the scene. He became a hero days later when he was able to help authorities identify one of two brothers accused of setting off pressure cooker bombs, killing two women and an 8-year-old boy and injuring more than 260 others. His memoir, “Stronger,” comes out Tuesday. The past year has been a blur for Bauman, and he can’t get used to the idea that this is his new life. “Right now, you know, it’s kind of a challenge to put my legs on every day. I’m not

The couple are expecting their first child in July. used to it. It’s something unnatural for me. But I think over time it will become more of a natural thing,” Bauman, 28, told the AP in an interview at the home he shares with his fiancee, Erin Hurley. “At first I couldn’t even wear them for 20 minutes. ... Now, I can wear them all day.” Bauman was standing near the finish line with two friends, waiting to cheer on Hurley as she completed the marathon, one of the most important and busiest events of the year in the city. He noticed a man who looked out of place in a crowd of revelers,

and they exchanged a long stare. As Bauman describes him, he was “all business.” Moments later, the two bombs exploded. Bauman found himself on the ground, his legs gone. People rushed in to help, but Bauman thought it was the end. Suddenly, a man in a cowboy hat appeared: Carlos Arredondo. He lifted Bauman into a wheelchair pushed by Devin Wang, a Boston University student, and they rushed toward the medical tents. They were joined along the way by Paul Mitchell, an EMT with Boston EMS.

“When someone looks that way, they’ve lost a lot of blood, and they’re really close to being dead,” Mitchell said. Thanks to his rescuers, Bauman lived. He was in surgery within 20 minutes at Boston Medical Center. Soon after Bauman woke, he was able to provide a description of the man who was “all business.” Authorities say it was Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed in a shootout with police in Watertown days later. Tsarnaev’s brother, Dzhokhar, has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial.

Applicants wait to be called during a health care enrollment event March 31 at the Bay Area Rescue Mission in Richmond, Calif.

With 7M enrolled, challenges remain remain a politically viable option? “What the Republicans need to really pay attention to is what they would do different from the Affordable Care Act,” said economist Gail Wilensky, who ran Medicare under President George H.W. Bush. “Just talking about repeal is not going to make it with 7 million people getting insurance on the exchange. And it has to be something reasonably credible ... it can’t just be repeal. We are beyond that.” The source of the pent-up demand that propelled health care sign-ups beyond expectations could stem from the nation’s new economic reality: a shrinking middle class and many working people treading water in low-paying jobs. Health insurance has been one of the pillars of middle-class security for decades. With fewer jobs these days that provide health benefits, there was an opening for a government program to subsidize private insurance.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama’s health care law, but that doesn’t guarantee success for the country’s newest social program Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal. “They have demonstrated the law can work, but we are a ways off from being able to judge its success,” said Larry Levitt, an expert on health insurance markets at the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. Republican opponents of the law keep pushing for a repeal, but as millions of people obtain insurance, how long can the party’s strategy

Cuban media abuzz over ‘secret Twitter’ The ASSOCIATED PRESS HAVANA – Revelations of a secret U.S. government program to set up a cellphone-based social network in Cuba are being trumpeted in the island’s official media as proof of Havana’s repeated allegations that Washington is waging a “cyber-war” to try to stir up unrest. The findings of an Associated Press investigation, published Thursday, featured prominently on multiple Cuban state TV newscasts and occupied a full page in Communist Party newspaper Granma on Friday. They also were to be the focus of the nightly twohour news analysis show “Mesa Redonda,” or “Roundtable.”

State news agency Prensa Latina recalled a Jan. 1 speech in which President Raul Castro warned of “attempts to subtly introduce platforms for neoliberal thought and for the restoration of neocolonial capitalism.” “Castro’s denunciations of the U.S. government’s destabilizing attempts against Cuba were corroborated by today’s revelation of a plan to push Cuban youth toward the counterrevolution, with the participation of a U.S. agency,” Prensa Latina said. U.S. officials defended the program as being in line with the mission of the U.S. Agency for International Development, which oversaw it. They said it did not amount to a “covert” operation, although they said the govern-

ment takes steps to maintain discretion when working in “non-permissive environments” such as Cuba. Documents obtained by the AP showed that the network, dubbed ZunZuneo after the Cuban word for hummingbird, operated from 2009 until it vanished in 2012. Some 40,000 island cellphone users signed up and used ZunZuneo to receive and send text messages, mostly innocuous jokes or snippets of international, sports and entertainment news. However the AP revealed that the network, built using secret shell companies and financed through a foreign bank, sought to first build an audience of mostly young people and then nudge them toward dissent.

Ana Edwards, chief opponent of the Shockoe Bottom stadium proposal, talks about historical markers Monday at the Lumkin Jail historical site in Richmond, Va. A proposal to build a minor league baseball stadium in Shockoe Bottom, the city’s oldest neighborhood and the center of the once-thriving slave trade, has drawn criticism from some who believe the area is sacred ground and shouldn’t be bulldozed for a ballpark.

Ballpark plan stirs slave-trade memories in Richmond, Va. By STEVE SZKOTAK The Associated Press RICHMOND, Va. – A proposal to build a ballpark in the slave-trading center of the former capital of the Confederacy has stirred opposition from African-Americans and others who contend it is “sacred ground” and no place to play baseball. Opponents heckled Mayor Dwight C. Jones in November when he outlined plans for the $200 million, stadium-centered economic development project in Shockoe Bottom, the city’s oldest neighborhood and home to its lucrative slave trade in the decades leading to the Civil War. By some estimates, more 300,000 men, women and children were jailed, bought and sold in the Bottom and shipped throughout the Southern states in the decades leading to the Civil War. The stadium proposal has unleashed pent-up frustration among those who believe the city has literally buried that shameful chapter of its history. Opponents have even recruited for their cause descendants of Solomon Northrop, whose tale of being kidnapped and sold into slavery was the basis of the celebrated movie “12 Years a Slave.” He was held in a Richmond slave jail before being taken to New Orleans. If nothing else, the debate has created the prospect of a long-overdue conversation about Richmond’s shameful role in the slave trade. Richmond was second only to New Orleans in the slave commerce. Maurie D. McInnis, a schol-

ar who has studied the slave trade in Richmond, said the city should embrace the moment. “There is an energy and attention to a history that has been bulldozed away and that needs to be acknowledged and made accessible to a public audience that clearly has a real appetite for this history,” she said. Shockoe Bottom lies east of the city’s financial district and a few blocks from the Capitol. It is home to nightclubs, shops and restaurants and lofts carved out of former tobacco warehouses. While some have questioned the stadium development proposal for other reasons, the fiercest opposition has come from those who fear the construction will hamper future efforts to uncover remnants of the slave trade beneath generations of development. “We are just now beginning to be able study what’s here,” said Ana Edwards, among the leading opponents of the stadium. “What they are proposing to do is essentially going to make it impossible to go any further.” Supporters of the stadium have countered that brickand-mortar remnants of the slave trade have long ago disappeared. They also have proposed a slave memorial and a $30 million museum as part of the project. Jones, who was greeted with chants of “Shame” when he publicly outlined the development, also has proposed archaeological work that would recover slave-trade artifacts for future public display.

Report: China ship detects ‘signal’ in search for plane The ASSOCIATED PRESS PERTH, Australia – Officials on Sunday were trying to confirm whether a “pulse signal” reportedly picked up by a Chinese ship in the Indian Ocean came from the missing Malaysian jetliner. The Australian agency coordinating the search for the

missing plane said that the electronic pulse signals reportedly detected by the Chinese ship are consistent with those of an aircraft black box. But the agency’s head, retired Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, said they “cannot verify any connection” at this stage between the signals and Malaysia Airlines Flight 370,

which disappeared March 8 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. China’s official Xinhua News Agency reported late Saturday that a Chinese ship that is part of the search effort detected a “pulse signal” at 37.5 kilohertz (cycles per second) – the same frequency emitted by flight data recorders – in south-

ern Indian Ocean waters. Xinhua, however, said it had not yet been determined whether the signal was related to the missing plane, citing the China Maritime Search and Rescue Center. Malaysia’s civil aviation chief, Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, confirmed the frequency emitted by Flight 370’s black

boxes were 37.5 kilohertz. Houston said his Joint Agency Coordination Centre had asked China for “any further information that may be relevant.” He said the Australian air force was considering deploying more aircraft to the area where the Chinese ship reportedly detected the sounds. “I have been advised that

a series of sounds have been detected by a Chinese ship in the search area. The characteristics reported are consistent with the aircraft black box,” Houston said. The agency had also received reports of white objects sighted on the ocean surface about 56 miles from where the electronic signals were detected.

U.N. chief visits C. African Republic The ASSOCIATED PRESS BANGUI, Central African Republic – U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon vowed Saturday that the world would not forget Central African Republic, as he visited the country wracked by sectarian violence that has left thousands dead and forced most of the nation’s Muslims to flee. Ban’s visit – his first since the bloodshed erupted in December – came just before he goes on to Rwanda to mark the 20th anniversary of the genocide there. The U.N. chief has been among the most vocal of world leaders in calling on countries to prevent a similar tragedy in Ban Ki-moon Central African U.N. secretary Republic. “The intergeneral national community failed the people of Rwanda 20 years ago. And we are at risk of not doing enough for the people of the CAR today,” Ban told members of a transitional council tasked with preparing the country for elections by February 2015. “Atrocity crimes are being committed in this country,” he said. “Ethno-religious cleansing is a reality. Most members of the Muslim minority have fled.” International aid groups have criticized the U.N. response to the crisis, though Ban himself has spoken forcefully about the need to protect civilians in Central African Republic, where at one point earlier this year Muslims were being killed by Christian mobs in the streets on a near-daily basis. “There is a hole in the heart of Africa,” Ban said Saturday. “Every day, I wake up thinking about your trials and troubles. Everywhere, I have called on leaders to step up their efforts,” he said. “Some say this is a forgotten crisis. I am here to help make sure the world does not forget.” Ban ventured well beyond the security of Bangui’s airport, meeting interim President Catherine Samba-Panza and even visiting Muslims at one of the last remaining operational mosques in the capital. Displaced families who have spent weeks sleeping outdoors on the grounds of the mosque held signs reading “Ban Kimoon: We want to go to the north.” Forces from neighboring Chad, a predominantly Muslim country, have helped to evacuate tens of thousands of Muslims fleeing the violence in Central African Republic but the U.N. estimates some 19,000 Muslims remained trapped in places too dangerous to leave them there. African countries have contributed 6,000 peacekeepers to the effort in Central African Republic, though neighboring Chad began withdrawing its 850 troops on Friday amid a dispute over clashes last weekend that left more than 30 civilians dead. The Chadian forces maintain they were returning fire, while a U.N. preliminary investigation has found they shot indiscriminately into a crowd of civilians. France has 2,000 troops in its former colony, though a European Union effort to send reinforcements has stalled amid an apparent reluctance to contribute forces.

Commission recommendations

Source: Local Government Consolidation Commission final report that allow them to consolidate or dissolve. Others, according to the report, contain unusual restrictions – under the law, two contiguous library districts cannot merge unless they have the exact same limits on their tax levies. “Many of these government creations, even if they wanted to annex or consolidate, have no mechanism with which to do it. Nothing is as permanent as a government institution. It never goes away,” Franks said. The state should also take steps to make it easier for governments to share resources to increase efficiency, the report concludes. In DuPage County, for example, there are 45 different government entities that provide for mosquito abatement services – 36 of them have different contracts with the same provider. The commission’s report also recommends that the state be much more cautious about imposing mandates on local governments. Taxing bodies have complained for years that many of their cost increases stem from having to comply with unfunded edicts from state lawmakers. Commission members advised in the report against

Many struggling to find solution to heroin epidemic • HEROIN Continued from page A1 mills” made painkillers such as OxyContin harder to find and more costly. It’s killing because it can be extremely pure or laced with other powerful narcotics. That, coupled with a low tolerance once people start using again after treatment, is catching addicts off guard. In hard-hit places, police, doctors, parents and former users are struggling to find solutions and save lives. “I thought my suburban, middle-class family was immune to drugs such as this,” said Valerie Pap, who lost her son, Tanner, to heroin in 2012 in Anoka County, Minn., and speaks out to try and help others. “I’ve come to realize that we are not immune.” The night before Valentine’s Day, some 250 people filed into a church in Spring Lake Park, Minn. There were

moms and dads of addicts, as well as children whose parents brought them in hopes of scaring them away from smack. From the stage, Dan Douglas gripped a microphone as a photograph appeared overhead on a screen: A woman in the fetal position on a bathroom floor. “You just don’t win with heroin,” Douglas told the crowd. “You die or you go to jail.” It was the third such forum held over two weeks in Anoka County, home to 335,000 people north of Minneapolis. Since 1999, 55 Anoka County residents have died from heroin-related causes. Only one other Minnesota county reported more heroin-related deaths – 58 – and it has a population three-and-a-half times greater than Anoka’s. Five years ago, county officials were focused on stamping out meth labs. Then investigators noticed a climb in pharmacy robberies, and

started finding Percocet and OxyContin during routine marijuana busts. As prescription drug abuse rose, so, too, did crackdowns aimed at shutting down pill mills. Users turned to heroin. Authorities are working to educate doctors about the dangers of overprescribing painkillers and are fighting to get heroin off the streets. The idea for the forums came from Pap, a third-grade teacher whose youngest son died of a heroin overdose. Tanner graduated from high school with honors. In the fall of 2012, he was pursuing a psychology degree at the University of Minnesota, and dreamed of becoming a drug counselor. Then one day Tanner’s roommates found the 21-yearold unconscious in his bedroom. “Our lives have been forever changed,” she told the crowd in Spring Lake Park. “Heroin took it all away.”


eliminate barriers to consolidation and resolve certain discrepancies in the Illinois statutes governing local governments and special districts,” the report states. State Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, filed the 2011 bill that created the 15-member commission and was its chairman. He said the committee’s research and testimony dispelled what he called his preconceived notions about the ease of eliminating the number of governments. “I think that consolidation is terrific, and it’s something I encourage, but I also know it’s something that can’t be mandated by Springfield,” Franks said Friday. “The consensus of the commission was that sometimes, it makes more sense to cooperate and work together instead of consolidation.” Illinois has the most units of government of any state at 6,968, according to a U.S. Census report – the first runner-up, Pennsylvania, has about 4,900. They include eclectic bodies that govern things like drainage, mosquito abatement, cemetery maintenance and county historical museums. McHenry County alone has 30 municipalities, 19 school districts, 17 townships, 17 fire protection districts, 13 library districts, four park districts, two sanitary districts, and two cemetery districts. While supporters maintain that local government means local control, opponents argue that they are breeding grounds for waste and corruption because the sheer number makes it almost impossible for watchdog groups – or county governments charged in many cases with appointing board members – to keep an eye on them. The commission concluded that, in many cases, state statutes that create taxing bodies do not contain mechanisms

n Investigate whether several types of taxing bodies are duplicative by nature, such as museum districts and county historical museum districts. n Examine which districts can create their own police forces and why some choose to do so. n Change state law to make sure that all units of local government have a means to abolish themselves, and remove unnecessary barriers. n Re-examine state mandates that add costs to local governments and taxpayers.

imposing consolidation, concluding that it should be up to local taxpayers. But left unwritten was the fact that proposals attempting to take a heavy-handed approach have never become law. Efforts in recent years that have failed to pass in the General Assembly include creating a state commission with binding authority to eliminate local governments, and to consolidate school districts into one district for each county. Smaller-scale bills, such as ones eliminating small township road districts, also have failed. But other efforts have succeeded. State lawmakers are consolidating the number of regional offices of education from 44 to 35. A law passed last year has given the DuPage County Board the power to eliminate 13 of its 400 units of government if they meet specific criteria. Supporters want to give all 102 counties in Illinois that power should the pilot program be successful. And a Franks bill aimed at slapping a four-year moratorium on the General Assembly’s ability to pass laws creating new units of government passed the House last week on a 101-10 vote. That bill was enacted to ensure that any consolidated or eliminated government couldn’t go to Springfield and get a new form of government created. “I think it’s going to be small steps to where we need to be, but for the first time we’re on the right path. We’re doing something about it and empowering the locals to do what they need to do to be more efficient,” Franks said. The commission’s report did not focus on schools – a separate task force, chaired by Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon, examined consolidating the state’s 868 school districts in a 2012. That report reached similar conclusions in that consolidation should be encouraged, not mandated, and resources shared or streamlined wherever possible.

44 states have adopted standard • COMMON CORE Continued from page A1 and what we need to do for the new assessments has been worthwhile,” said George Oslovich, District 200 assistant superintendent for middle and high schools. Woodstock students from 10 classrooms spanning grades 3-11 took practice performance-based exams this week. Participating districts will conduct end-of-the year assessments akin to current Illinois standardized tests in May. Forty-four states and the District of Columbia have adopted the new Common Core state standards since 2010. Illinois is working with 18 other states – in a group called the “Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers” – to develop new standardized tests in English and math tied to the standards. Other area districts that elected not to participate were concerned about overtesting students, while critics such as U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, have urged Illinois to delay the much-anticipated education transformation. Chicago-based Heartland Institute, a free-market think tank, ridiculed the practice tests as a waste of time. The think tank has been a vocal critic of the Common Core, arguing that unaccountable bureaucrats are leading the coalition Illinois joined for developing the new assessments. Heartland researchers agreed with Hultgren, who called for a delay this week during an event in Johnsburg. “It’s about forcing children to spend hours and days losing instruction time they deserve to serve as unpaid, nonvoluntary guinea pigs for tests that will offer them, their teachers, parents and communities no useful information – no information at all,” said Joy Pullmann, Heartland education research fellow. Officials from Huntley District 158 and Crystal Lake District 155 said they didn’t want to take instructional time away from students, who already have to complete the current standardized tests. High school students, too, will

soon have final exams and Advanced Placement tests, as the school year enters the final stretch. The other districts that didn’t participate were McHenry District 156 and Richmond-Burton District 157. “We elected not to participate primarily because of the loss of instructional time that this would have caused for our students and teachers,” said District 155 spokesperson Jeff Puma, adding that students will not see the results of the practice tests and how they improved. All districts in Illinois will start using those new assessments for real next year, but the districts that have caught an early glimpse say students are being challenged to use their critical-thinking skills more than ever before. The current statewide assessments, containing multiple choice and other questions, gave districts feedback on whether students could perform specific skills, Oslovich said. The new assessments go beyond and ask students to apply the information to different areas. Oslovich said the new English tests ask students to read certain passages and have them recall the important information conveyed. They then are required to compare the information, analyze it and write a response, based on a prompt. “The ISAT test assessed what it was designed to assess – are kids able to do the skill,” Oslovich said. “What this assessment will do is not only tell us: Can kids do the skill? But it will let us know better: Can they apply this skill?” Ben Churchill, assistant superintendent for high school teaching and learning at District 300, said the tests students are taking this week are quite different from the current standardized ones taken at the elementary, middle and high school levels. “The new [English] assessments focus on writing effectively when analyzing texts, and the math assessments focus on applying skills and concepts to multi-step problems requiring abstract reasoning,” he said.

Knee Pain?


You DO NOT Have to Suffer From Knee Pain Any Longer! HOW DOES THIS TREATMENT WORK?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Consider these facts before surgery People who suffer from knee pain typically try supplements or pain medications before seeking help from a doctor. When all else fails and the pain is too much, some feel that surgery is the only option.

Live within your means What’s happening now with the McHenry County Conservation District is exactly what should have happened with many other units of government when the housing bubble burst and home values plunged. The district is making plans to operate with less revenue. MCCD expects to lose an estimated $2 million in property tax revenue over the next five years as declining property values lower For the record the maximum the district is allowed We oppose legislation that to levy for its genwould take more money from eral fund. taxpayers and give it to MCCD. A bill making its way through the General Assembly – legislation that we do not support – would rectify MCCD’s declining revenue by raising the district’s maximum tax rate from 10 cents to 15 cents per $100 in assessed value. In the meantime, though, MCCD has budgeted as if it won’t receive additional revenue and is making tough choices with expenses. Imagine that. Government acting like a business. Or a household. When the housing crisis sent the economy into the Great Recession, businesses and families alike had to make tough choices to reduce spending to meet the new reality. Government units at all levels – local, state, federal – should have done the same thing. Instead, most continued to squeeze taxpayers for every penny they could get. Anticipating less money this fiscal year, MCCD is planning to tighten its belt. Employees will have to pay more for their health insurance. Fewer capital improvements will be made. Some programs will be eliminated, and office hours at some parks will be scaled back. We don’t cheer any of these cuts, but they are the much better option than to continue to take more from beleaguered taxpayers. Sens. Pam Althoff, R-McHenry, and Karen McConnaughay, R-St. Charles, recently filed legislation – two bills, actually – on behalf of MCCD. The first, as we’ve stated, would increase MCCD’s tax rate. The second would allow the district to issue some bonds without voter approval. We agree with some County Board members who pushed back against the legislation. “Looking for more funding in times of such fiscal difficulty doesn’t seem to be logical right now,” Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs Committee member Nick Chirikos, D-Algonquin, told conservation district representatives at a committee meeting last week. Exactly. MCCD and all units of government must tighten their collective belts and stop asking for more. And taxpayers must be willing to accept a reduction in services or programs as a result.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Ill-conceived plan To the Editor: A recent decision by Democratic state Sen. Terry Link to table his totally inappropriate resolution to dissolve the Fox Waterway Agency is still not good enough. Sending this boondoggle to be studied further is just wasting more taxpayer time and money. The Fox Waterway Agency has consistently shown to be a huge benefit to our local environment, waterway and it inhabitants. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources indicated that it was not equipped to take over active management of this important function and, after reading all the recent issues at the IDNR (front page of the Northwest Herald, March 29, 2014), I would agree. The rationale provided by the two Democrat proponents was their attempt to reduce the number of state agencies. However, the only one they picked out of the 7,700 agencies is the one that does not actually collect any taxpayer

money. Frankly I do not believe that was their motive, and I can only guess that they are working on some ill-conceived plan to sell us some swamp land. Hats off to Sen. Pam Althoff for opposing that bill.

Tax more To the Editor: Revenue for federal and state public needs should be obtained through adequate fair, progressive taxes, meaning those with the ability to pay should pay more. For all but three of the past 30 years, state and federal government have had insufficient revenue. Extensive corporate loopholes, offshore havens, depreciation ... all deprive government of revenue. Government loses revenue when a CEO’s pay is stock options rather than salary, and likewise by not properly taxing capital gains and

derivatives. Regarding state income taxes and property taxes, having those with the ability to pay more would help with fairness. Tax caps lack progressiveness. States with personal income taxes are more prosperous than those without, and with more revenue state can better fund public services – infrastructure, safety, schools. State income tax is the only major state tax that generates revenue that keeps pace with the economy’s growth. Lower and middle classes mainly supply regressive sales tax and

Money wasted To the Editor: When you come out of McDonald’s onto South Street, there is a right turn-only sign. I bet about 75 percent or more of the cars turn left. Seems the money spent on the sign was wasted. Steve Schwichow Woodstock

In April, poetry is in the air, and just about everywhere It’s April, National Poetry Month, and I’m back to remind you that poetry is everywhere if you just pay attention. This past summer, I was sharing dessert with a couple of neighbors when I cheerfully announced, “Next week, I’m taking a one-week course in Poetic Form at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I’ll be learning to write sonnets and villanelles.” “Well, that’s certainly a waste of time!” Tom said. Just for the record, the time spent with colleagues from the U.S. and abroad at Write By The Lake wasn’t a waste of time. It was exhilarating. And, in addition to that planned rendezvous, poetry showed up in my life in unexpected places as often as the snowfalls I shoveled in January and February. I’m betting poetry frequently has shown up in your life as well. For example, in January, the cartoon page of the Northwest Herald featured Grandpa of Pickles fame wearing his cowboy hat because he thought doing so would enhance his image as a cowboy poet. He waved his pen around and recited,

Here I sit in my worn-out recliner, But I wouldn’t trade it for anything finer. It helps me unwind, and it fits my behind And it’s also my favorite diner. Then, Grandpa grinned. He was just so proud of himself. Grandpa’s homey, rhyming effort made me think of Robert Service, famous for his ballad, “The Shooting of Dan McGrew.” When I was in the Yukon in 1997, taking the Gold Rush Alaskan trip with my husband, I

visited Service’s little cabin where he wrote most of his “verse,” as he called it. Service was a bank clerk, not an academic, who wandered into a rugged land and recorded what he saw or was told. He said, “I don’t believe in pretty language ... My idea of verse writing is to write something within the scope of the everyday workingman.” Take a minute to listen to Johnny Cash read Service’s “The Cremation of Sam McGee” on YouTube. It’s a perfect blend of rhythm and rhyme, verse and voice. Poetry followed me to the movies as well. In the film, “Philomena,” actor Steve Coogan utters a very provocative stanza from a T.S. Eliot poem, written in 1940. Coogan plays Martin Sixsmith, British author and BBC presenter who helped Philomena trace her lost son.

We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time. All of you who saw the film know just how those few lines sum up the exploration that Philomena Lee undertakes and how she comes full circle and knows the convent of her youth in a new way. Sometimes, one short stanza just says so much. About two months ago on a blustery Sunday evening, poetry called me. Well, actually, my 10-year-old grandson called to ask me to help him find the assonance in an Emily Dickinson poem. Now, our first task was to get the pronunciation right;

VIEWS Jan Bosman you can’t be too careful with a word like “assonance” in a fifth-grade classroom. Then, we worked by telephone to pick out vowels with the same sounds in non-rhyming words. But Emily Dickinson! Assonance! In a fifth-grade classroom! I was astounded. When it comes to poetry, some of us aren’t smarter than a fifth-grader. Poetry floated down like snowflakes in the books I read this year, too. Author Cheryl Strayed of “Wild” burned or traded all of the books she carried while trekking the Pacific Coast Trail in 1997 – except for her book of poems. She carried Adrienne Rich’s book, “The Dream of a Common Language,” all 1,500 miles. At the end of the trip, she read several lines from a dozen or more familiar poems and then hugged the book to her chest like an old friend. Thomas Jefferson’s biographer, Jon Meacham, quotes Jefferson as saying the following: “Aspiring attorneys having devoted their mornings to the law and having ascribed proper hours to exercise should divide what vacant hours remain into three portions: Give the principal to history, the other two, which should be shorter, to philosophy and poetry.” Now there’s a fresh message for attorneys! Have you noticed how poetic references spring up in the daily


crossword puzzle, also? For example, there are questions like these almost every day: Teasdale poet? Sara Poetry? Verse Baltimore bard? Poe “In Zanadu did__Kahn? Kubla Exiled Roman poet? Ovid Donne’s “done”? O’er Subject for Keats? Urn You get the picture. Poetry braves all kinds of weather and shows up everywhere. For those of you who remember my cowardice when faced with Jim May’s Poetry Slam at The Spoken Word Café in 2012, well, in March, 2013, I participated! I read an original poem from a shaky, 8½-by-11 sheet of bond paper; the younger participants read their poems off their iPhones. But, you know what? We all connected for an evening – an evening that wasn’t about young or old, color or white. It was about sharing our passion and our poetry. This is the poem I read:

Without Words (Sandy Hook Elementary School, December 2012)

On normal days, words dance in my mind like dervishes. They whirl and twirl, inviting me to catch and shape them into a poem. But shots ring out and bodies fall. Children hide under tables, in closets and locked bathrooms. Six- and seven-year-olds die in their classrooms. My words hide, too. My words die, too. Today I write poems with no words.

Poetry and poetic references have appeared this year like those unending winter snowflakes: Poems on calendars, on funeral cards. My hairdresser Becky’s husband, writing a poem for her to celebrate her 30th birthday; Lorde, in Rolling Stone magazine, citing Sylvia Plath as her favorite poet. Maya Angelou answering “10 Questions” in the April 2013 issue of Time magazine. Tony Bennett, introducing Billy Joel as “our poet and our pal” at the Kennedy Center honors in December 2013. Pushkin, famous Russian poet, being mentioned at the opening to the Olympic games. And, I know that a bunch of you read at least one poem during the past 12 months as I urged you to do. So, pat yourselves on the back, but don’t stop there. Listen to construction worker John Doerty read his favorite lines from Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself” on Then, take notice of all the times poetry dusts your shoulders in 2014. It wants your attention. I’m sure of it.

Make a place to sit down Sit down. Be quiet ... Accept what comes from silence. Make the best you can of it. Of the little words that come Out of the silence, like prayers ... – Wendell Berry

• Jan Bosman of Woodstock taught English and business for 32 years, the last 22 at Johnsburg High School. She also is a published essayist and poet.

WORK TO BEGIN ON CARY PARK TRAIL CARY – Construction on a new 720-foot long trail at Lions Park is set to begin soon, and is expected to be finished in time for the district’s annual fireworks display. The 10-foot wide paved trail will go from Silver Lake Road into the park along the driveway and connect to existing trails, said Park District Executive Director Dan Jones. As pedestrians enter the park now, they have to walk along the edge of the driveway, Jones said. “The board wants to provide safer access ... for pedestrians,” Jones said. Allstar Asphalt Inc. of Wheeling will carry out the project for the park district for $79,000. The district’s budget for the project is $108,000. Work is expected to begin May 1 and be substantially completed by June 30, in time for the park district’s annual summer celebration July 3, which includes a fireworks display at Lions Park.

Sex assault victim shares story Woman who became outspoken advocate to speak at Take Back the Night By CHELSEA McDOUGALL WOODSTOCK – It was 9 a.m. August 2008. Bridget Hummel was asleep in her room at the Crystal Lake Motel where she lived and worked. She woke up to a man on top of her from behind, breathing the words “this is going to happen” into her ear. The rope he tied around her neck left deep burn marks as

she struggled underneath the weight of him. For a painstaking 37 minutes, Hummel watched as the clock next to her counted the time it took for her intruder to brutally beat and rape her. All she kept thinking was: “Please don’t kill me.” And “please don’t let my mom find me like this.” Hummel’s rapist eventually was caught and prosecuted. He is serving a 20-year sentence in Big Muddy River Correctional

Facility. “I got my day in court, and no one will understand the satisfaction that comes from that day,” said Hummel, now 29. She’s is no longer afraid, yet – as she says – she can’t leave the scene of the crime. There still are moments that trigger her panic and anxiety. Her heart races if she sees someone who resembles the offender. She can’t wear scarves around her neck. But through it all, she’s be-

come an outspoken advocate against sexual violence, often partnering with VOICE, the Pioneer Center for Human Services’ program for victims of sexual assault. She’s speaking later this month at Take Back the Night, an awareness event and candlelight vigil for victims of sexual assault. April is sexual assault awareness month. According to the national

YARD WASTE TO BE COLLECTED IN CL CRYSTAL LAKE – Crystal Lake residents can begin leaving yard waste containers out with their garbage and recycling starting Monday. City officials said biodegradable brown paper bags are the preferred containers for yard waste, but yard waste also would be collected from garbage cans that are clearly marked on the side with a large X. Yard waste includes grass clippings, weeds, twigs and other similar items. Yard waste carts – a 95-gallon container similar to those provided for household waste – can be rented for a monthly fee and eliminate the need to continually purchase biodegradable bags.

McHenry mulls balanced budget By EMILY K. COLEMAN McHENRY – An updated billing system, road improvements, a boat ramp and the engineering for a proposed recreation center and consolidation of the city’s wastewater treatment plants.

The proposed budget that will come back before the Finance Committee at its Monday meeting has some big ticket items in it, but most of the increase in general fund expenditures will go toward raises and higher insurance and retirement costs, Village Administrator Derik Morefield said.

The draft budget totals about $38.6 million, with about $18.9 million of that coming out of the general fund, the city’s main fund for non-utility operating expenses. The budget as drafted is balanced. The proposal represents

By JEFF ENGELHARDT CRYSTAL LAKE – Toni Ballstaedt had commercial space, a store’s worth of inventory and no permit from the city to run a business. But the co-owner of The Cleaning Connection in Crystal Lake had faith in

her new business venture and was confident the City Council would approve. Her early and risky investment was rewarded this week when she received the approval she wanted for her new resale store Pinchin Pennies. “I’m a very religious person, and when I discussed

the idea with my pastor he thought it was a great idea,” Ballstaedt said of her business concept. “So I already had the store stocked before I got approval. I figured if God doesn’t want it to happen, it won’t happen.” It is Ballstaedt’s religious values that provided some inspiration to pursue


her new business that will focus on supporting organizations that will pay for children who cannot afford to register for camps, clubs, sports and other activities. She said 10 percent of net profits will go to those organizations each month.

PRAIRIE GROVE – In order to pay for upcoming bridge and road work, the village of Prairie Grove is set to take out $1.59 million in bonds, its village administrator said.

Enrollment drop leads to letting a teacher go

Pub crawl proceeds to send vets to D.C.

By EMILY K. COLEMAN RICHMOND – Dropping enrollment has caused Richmond and Spring Grove’s elementary school district to trim its staff, its superintendent said. Enrollment at District 2 has dropped 21.6 percent since the 2005-06 school year when the district hit a peak of 1,601 kindergartners through eighth-graders, according to fall enrollment numbers submitted to the Illinois State Board of Education. And while the third-grade class will increase to four

sections next year, the overall enrollment drop at Spring Grove Elementary led to the honorable dismissal of one teacher, Superintendent Dan Oest said. The school board approved the staffing changes at its last board meeting. Shifting Dan Oest course enrollment at District 157, the highschool district that covers the same territory as District 2, has led to the overall decrease of a fifth of a full-time teaching

position. A business teacher was honorably dismissed by the school board because of insufficient student enrollment, Oest said. An art position also will decrease from one full-time teaching equivalent to threefifths, which is being accomplished by hiring a part-time replacement for a retiring fulltime teacher, he said. The math department will increase by one full-time position, Oest said. A three-fifths English teaching position will increase to four-fifths by expanding the position of a current teacher.

Park Quest contest launched Program encourages residents to explore By JEFF ENGELHARDT CRYSTAL LAKE – In an effort to promote all of its parks, the Crystal Lake Park District has created the Park Quest program to encourage residents to explore the 1,370 acres of land in the district. Park Quest 2014, which will run through Aug. 8, challenges families to complete 40 questions on a map that will take participants to all the parks in Crystal Lake. For every 10 park challenges completed, partici-

pants will receive a prize and a raffle ticket for the grand prize. Participants can earn up to four raffle tickets. The grand prize, a $250 gift certificate to the Lakewood Lou Malnati’s, will be awarded at the Blast on the Beach on Aug. 9. The event was created after park district staff learned of a family that visited every park last summer and chronicled the visits with photographs. Park district staff encourage Park Quest participants to take photographs of their visits and bring them to the park district office. Maps for the challenge can be picked up in community

City employees set to take step increases

Pinchin Pennies may open May 1 Continued from page B1 “I have a daughter who is very active in gymnastics, choir and activities and the cost is astronomical,” Ballstaedt said. “So many people can’t afford all the costs, but budget limits shouldn’t stop kids from participating.” Pinchin Pennies will be in Unit 8 at Crystal Lake Plaza on 6500 Northwest Highway, next to businesses such as New Balance and Pinemoor

Pizza. The store will be a boutique-style resale store that features some high-end items such as Ethan Allen furniture and Kimball pianos. Donations will be by appointment only, Ballstaedt said. She encouraged interested donors and nonprofits that support children’s involvement in camps and activities to contact the store at 815-3539763. If the store is successful, Ballstaedt said she has plans to start her own foundation

that would provide tuition payments for camps and clubs to children in need. She also already has people in place to operate a second store in McHenry County if the Crystal Lake location does well. “There is nothing like this out in this area to help these families,” she said. “I just want to help as many people as I can.” Because she did most of the preparation before she received approval from the city, Ballstaedt said she expects to open May 1.

About 60 percent of attacks unreported • ADVOCATE Continued from page B1 statistics from the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, or RAINN, one in six women has been the victim of rape or attempted rape. Still a majority, an estimated 60 percent, of those attacks go unreported. For every outspoken woman like Hummel, there are

plenty more who aren’t as vocal about their experience. “Sexual assault is a very private issue. It’s something that nobody looks at. It’s a hush-hush issue,” VOICE Advocate Sarah Mathe said. “... For every silence that is broken, it paves the way for someone else to break their silence.” Using simple math and national statistics, VOICE estimates there are at least 13,000

women in McHenry County who have been the victim of some form of rape or sexual assault in their lifetimes. “The reality of McHenry County is that it does happen here,” Mathe said. VOICE can be reached 24/7 at 815-759-7066. The agency provides free or low-cost counseling and medical and legal advocacy for victims of rape or sexual assault.

Continued from page B1 a 3.94 percent increase over last year’s total budget and will be paid for using rebounding sales tax dollars, which are estimated to climb 3.1 percent. That nearly returns the city to its fiscal year 2011-12 levels, which was the year Walmart relocated. The money won’t come from property taxes because the McHenry City Council decided in December to keep its levy flat for a third year. All city employees are set to take step increases, which are laid out in various salary schedules for union and non-union employees. Non-union employees haven’t taken a step in four years and received varying cost-of-living increases, averaging 1.3 percent, Morefield said. This will be the last year non-union employees will work off the step system, he said. The city has been developing a merit-based system that will be used in assessing next year’s raises, Morefield said. Meetings will be held to brief to the 40 affected employees. Union members also will get a cost-of-living adjustment of 2 percent on top of the step increase as laid out in their contracts. One of those contracts – for the union that represents police dispatchers, community service officers and records clerks – is set to expire at the end of the month and is still being negotiated. While many of the city’s larger projects will be paid for using alternative revenues source – developer donation fees have been allocated to a special savings account for the recreation


permit software to replace 20-year-old technology; three squad cars; maintenance and improvements to the municipal center; an estimated $400,000 has been earmarked for the city’s street program; and the extension of Knox Drive.

to Route 31, she said. The village is in the first phase of engineering on the replacement or repair of the Justen Road bridge, which has been declared by the Illinois Department of Transportation structurally deficient and functionally obsolete. That means parts of it are in poor or worse condition and it no longer meets current design standards.

In the seven and half years Smith has been with the village, the board has always abated the bond portion and used other revenue, typically sales tax. The estimated first year cost of the new bond issue is $183,648 and varies between $180,828 and $183,648 throughout its 10-year term, Smith said. Because the village of Prairie Grove is a home-rule community, it did not have to go to the voters to ask for the borrowing authority.

About $1 million of the money will go toward new projects, and the remainder will go toward paying off the village’s 2008 bonds, Smith said. The village has three years to use the funds. Those bonds are about 50 percent paid down and were taken out to pay for road projects, including Niche and Valley View roads. Like those bonds, the Village Board does not plan on levying for the new bond, Smith said.

modern day incorporated Harvard. He met his wife, Fran, in 1951 and they wed December 27, 1952. They were married for 61 wonderful years. Fred was employed at Arnold's Engineering until he retired in 1987. He always worked hard to provide 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 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.

Kentucky, UConn in national championship Aaron Harrison’s 3 continues ’Cats’ magical NCAA run By EDDIE PELLS The Associated Press ARLINGTON, Texas – No, this was not an instant replay, although it certainly is turning into a highlight reel Kentucky and Aaron Harrison could get used to watching over and over again. Harrison took a pass from his twin brother, Andrew, spotted up from NBA range and watched the ball rattle in for the lead with 5.7 seconds left to lift the Wildcats to a 74-73 victory Saturday night over Wisconsin in the Final Four. “You can’t be scared to miss, and you want to be that guy that wants to

Final Four At AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas Saturday’s semifinals Connecticut 63, Florida 53 Kentucky 74, Wisconsin 73 Monday’s championship Connectictut (31-8) vs. Kentucky (29-10), 8:10 p.m. take the big shots,” Aaron Harrison said. It’s the third straight game the Kentucky freshman has made a 3 for the go-ahead points in this magical ride for the Wildcats (29-10), and the second straight time the pass has come from his brother for a shot from the left center of the arc. Traevon Jackson had a last-second shot to try to beat the Wildcats, but the desperation jumper rimmed out and once again Harrison found himself at the bottom of a dog pile at center court.

Eighth-seeded Kentucky will play seventh-seeded UConn in the final Monday – the highest seed total to play for the title since they started putting numbers by the names in 1979. “I know how good they are, but I don’t know how they play,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said of his next opponent. Wisconsin (30-8) set a Final Four record by going 95 percent from the freethrow line – 19 for 20. But it was that one miss that cost the Badgers. Jackson got Andrew Harrison to jump into him while attempting a 3-pointer with 16.4 seconds left. His first free throw rimmed out, and – after he made the next two – Wisconsin had a 73-71 lead and Kentucky had the ball. Any doubt where it was going? Against Louisville in the regional semifinal, Aaron Harrison was open in the corner when Julius Randle found him. He hit the go-ahead 3 with 39.1

After long winter, it’s almost time to fly

ner at first. It was strong defensive plays like those that helped the Tigers (2-3 overall, 1-0 FVC) hang on to their first conference win. “We were pretty pumped up and energized after those plays,” Cormier said. “Aunan laying out for one, Alan caught one earlier in the game. The defense will always be there for us.” The solid defense has helped take some pressure off Birr and the rest of the pitching staff in the early portion of the season. Birr walked three Saturday, but because of his defense, he still felt confident that he could challenge hitters when he was behind in the count and wasn’t afraid to keep the ball in the strike zone.

I am a pigeon. You are a pigeon. We all are pigeons. We’ve been waiting for the arrival of spring so we can go outside and flap our wings, so to speak. We’ve been cooped up for far too long, staying inside because we don’t want our faces to resemble chicken patties with freezer burn. Well, the same goes for pigeons. I’m talking about fine racing pigeons, not the ugly common pigeons that loiter near the train tracks. These racing pigeons, which are trained athletes born and bred to compete, have yet to leave Ron Navlyt’s loft near Woodstock because hungry hawks quickly would target them for a snack. Typically, hawks would leave the pigeons alone. Typically, hawks would prefer to dine on robins and red wing blackbirds and the like. But those birds have not returned yet – you’d extend your southern vacation, too, if you had the option – which means the hawks are grumpy, which means the pigeons have to be careful. “It’s been miserable this winter,” said Navlyt, 67, who has lived on Greenwood Road with his family and his pigeons since 1965. “It’s been a real slow start. “I’ve got a bunch of babies going right now, and they’re about ready to be let out. We’re just waiting.” All of us are waiting. Some of us are waiting to grill burgers on the deck. Some of us are waiting to yank the tarp off of the pool. Some of us are waiting to loft beanbags toward the hole. Meanwhile, Navlyt’s pigeons are waiting to fly. And Navlyt, along with every other member of Woodstock’s 20th Century Racing Pigeon Club, is waiting to race them. Maybe you’ve heard of pigeon racing. Maybe you haven’t. It probably depends on your age and where you grew up, and whether you had relatives who raced birds.

CRYSTAL LAKE – The Crystal Lake Central baseball team put on a defensive show Saturday morning and helped starting pitcher Fred Birr pick up his first win of the season. The sophomore was strong on the mound in his second start and allowed four hits and one unearned run in 5⅔ innings in a 6-1 Fox Valley Conference crossover victory over host Crystal Lake South. “Defense carried us today,” Tigers coach Dan Badgley said. “Fred Birr did unbelievable out there and the whole team played well.” Birr pitched to contact as he struck out only one batter, but the movement on his pitches helped keep

the Gators from making solid contact. When the Gators did hit the ball hard, however, the Tigers defense stepped up and made several highlight-reel plays. With two outs in the bottom half of the fifth inning, Gators hitter Garrett Bright hit a line drive to right field that was slicing away from outfielder Rob Aunan. Aunan took off to his left, stretched out with his glove and snagged the ball before tumbling onto the damp grass for the third out. A similar play happened in the first inning when Bright lined to left fielder Alan Pawlicki, who made an impressive catch. Again, in the bottom half of the sixth, the Tigers got another defensive gem as second baseman Robby Cormier handled a hard-hit line drive and turned two, doubling off the run-

ike it or not, video review has arrived to Major League Baseball. Sports editor Jon Styf and columnist Tom Musick discuss:

Musick: Finish this thought. Baseball’s new replay system is _____. Styf: Discombobulated. The Cubs six-hour game that didn’t need to be six hours Wednesday proved it. The neighborhood play at second isn’t supposed to be reviewable. But if it’s deemed that a bad throw caused the fielder to leave the bag he’s supposed to be tagging, it can be. But who makes that judgment call? The guys on the field or the mystery men on the other end of the headsets. And there needs to be a clock on these decisions. Because a three-minute delay and a five-minute delay can’t happen in a game like that. Heck, Don Baylor broke his femur the other day and it didn’t delay the start of the game five minutes. Musick: My favorite part is when the manager trots out to the umpire, but the manager is not certain yet whether he wants to challenge a ruling. So he makes some small talk, kills some time, and then finally makes his executive decision a minute or two later after someone on his team has studied the replay. I’m a big fan of small talk, especially in elevators. I think I’d chat with umpires about their favorite dinosaurs. Styf: I like Cryolophosaurus. But the Orange Dinosaur (Martellus Bennett) is about to have a big year too. Which reminds me of a joke my daughter likes to tell. What do you call a dinosaur that breaks everything? ... wait for it ... Tyrannosaurus Rex. Musick: I’m stealing that. Are stolen jokes reviewable? What about stolen bases? Styf: It appears like pretty much anything is reviewable, which changes the game significantly. Can we go back and give Armando Galarraga his perfect game now, even though he hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2012? I think we should review Bartman too. The kid could get his life back and we could posthumously give the Cubs the NLCS, then simulate the World Series on the new R.B.I. Baseball game. Musick: I’m throwing the challenge flag or the challenge rosin bag or whatever baseball managers use. Because I don’t think Bartman had much of a life in the first place, so how could he get his life back? Let’s go to review. If you want to know what I really think, I’d eliminate all in-game video reviews from sports. It slows down football, it slows down hockey, it slows down basketball and now it slows down baseball. Why do we do this? To appease gamblers? To pretend this stuff actually matters? Styf: Whoa ... easy there on the sports don’t matter thing. I don’t want to have to get a real job. This place suits me fine. Musick: Yeah, good point. But if worse comes to worst, you always could go on the dinosaur joke circuit.

Jason LeBlanc has a history with Elgin Community College’s volleyball program. Now, he’s in charge of trying to create a buzz about a Spartans women’s program he is taking over. LeBlanc spent the past five years coaching at Sky High Volleyball in Crystal Lake and coaching the freshman girls team at Woodstock North. He will hold three open tryouts for the ECC program from 6 to 8 p.m. on April 15, 22 and 29.

I actually met my wife at Elgin Community College. We both were playing there like 20 years ago and I still have my (ECC) jacket. My wife kept saying, ‘You’ve got to throw that thing out, just throw it out.’ And I said, ‘I’m going to hold onto it.’ Now I have a reason to keep it. I kind of feel like I’m coming back around. When I left there, I thought, ‘OK, I’m going to play as long as I can,’ and then I wanted to get into coaching. Eventually, I knew I would love to go back and coach at ECC. When I saw the (job) opening, I said, ‘Oh, I have to do this. I just have to.’ This is my shot. I’ve always wanted to come back here and be the coach and now I’ve got my chance.

I remember when I played at ECC, the program was really strong. They won and they were competitive. I don’t think they have that now. The past few years, they’ve kind of been down and I’ve talked to some of the players and they say, ‘Yeah, there’s really no excitement.’ The players now are like, ‘You’re going to bring so much more to this.’

Right now, the most challenging thing is recruiting, because they really haven’t been a successful program for a while. A lot of players don’t even know that (ECC) has a team. So, I have a lot of work to do between now and the fall. I kind of like the idea that I get to pick the players. At Sky High and with club (volleyball), you had kids who signed up to play and who want to play and we kind of divided what we have. Now, I get to go out and look for players who I would want to play and who I think would be a good fit. I’m kind of looking forward to that.

I like my teams to be smart, I like to them to think. They’ll always know what they’ll be doing on the court. Hopefully, I can teach them all that and they can think for themselves. But we’re going to be a smart team that makes good decisions out there. I like all-around players who can play more than one specific position and I like running a faster offense. We don’t always have to have big, tall girls. I always had teams at Sky High who were kind of short and we would play against teams with tall girls and we would beat them with defense. We would just wear them down with defense. We’re fast, and we do well with that.

I know this is going to be a bit of a challenge – especially to get people excited. But I think it’s going to be a fun challenge to get them started and build that program. I don’t know if it will happen overnight, but I’m going to try to get these guys going. It may take a couple of years, but I think that will be fun. Even if I had nobody, I would recruit players and bring them in. I’ve already got a couple of players I’m looking at and I can’t wait for them to get here. When I talk about volleyball, I tend to get pretty excited about it. So I hope my passion for volleyball comes out. Hopefully, I can get them excited.

8SPORTS SHORTS Wildcats’ Fitzgerald urges ‘no’ vote on union EVANSTON – Northwestern football coach Pat Fitzgerald sided with his university against the formation of a players union in his first public comments Saturday, repeating what he already told his team: “I believe

it’s in their best interests to vote no.” Fitzgerald addressed the issue for the first time with his squad Wednesday, a week after Peter Ohr, regional director for the National Labor Relations Board, ruled that Northwestern’s scholarship football players

were “employees.” That decision entitled players to conduct a secret-ballot vote on forming a union to pursue collective bargaining with the school, a move that could significantly alter the structure of college sports – especially big revenue-producers such as football and basketball.

Stewart edges Keselowski for pole at Texas FORT WORTH, Texas – Tony Stewart knocked Brad Keselowski from the pole as qualifying ended Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway. Stewart waited right until the end of the final round to

attempt his lap and circled the speedway at 195.454 mph to grab the top starting spot for Sunday’s race. It’s Stewart’s 15th career pole and his first since Atlanta in 2012. “It was cool. I’m not normally a qualifier,” Stewart said.

Anangono lifts Fire into 2-2 draw with Union BRIDGEVIEW – Juan Luis Anangono headed in the tying goal in the 86th minute to lift the Fire to their fourth straight draw, a 2-2 tie with the Philadelphia Union on Saturday.

By BRIAN SANDALOW CHICAGO – Manager Rick Renteria said before Saturday’s game the Cubs’ offense might be having “situational struggles.” Those woes continued in a 2-0 defeat to the Phillies on Saturday at Wrigley Field. The Cubs got another good start from Jeff Samardzija and had 10 hits off Phillies starter Cliff Lee, but went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position in their second shutout in five games. They started the day 4-for-33 in that department, but it only got worse Saturday and they lost their second in a row to the Phillies. “I don’t know if it’s a mindset. You do have to be relaxed and know that the pitcher’s on the ropes a little bit,” Renteria said. “It’s something that you talk about and you see if it starts to take hold, the understanding of that particular type of situation so the guys can be a little more relaxed.” The lack of timely hitting undid Samardzija’s second strong start to begin the year – which actually raised the Cubs’ starters’ ERA to 1.95. Samardzija’s quality start was the Cubs’ fourth in five games this season, though only Ja-

After throwing seven shutout innings for a no-decision in Monday’s opener at Pittsburgh, Samardzija went seven Saturday and surrendered two runs and six hits while striking out eight, but took the loss. He allowed Chase Utley’s

first-inning home run and Domonic Brown’s RBI single in the fourth, but got no support. That’s been a common theme for him and the starting rotation, although Samardzija said that’s not affecting how he is pitching. “I don’t think so. We have a pretty veteran-laden staff

that understands what you can control as a pitcher,” Samardzija said. “We understand that.” Samardzija showed he understands that, but he didn’t get much help from an offense that got three hits from Starlin Castro and two apiece from Anthony Rizzo and Emilio

Bonifacio. Unfortunately for the Cubs, none came with runners in scoring position, and they stayed stuck on eight runs through five games. “It’s definitely too early for [pressing]. No one around really around here is feeling any kind of extra pressure,” third baseman Mike Olt said. “We’re just trying to figure something out. Early in the season this happens a lot and then the good teams are the ones that can kind of get over it.” Lee pitched seven shutout innings and struck out six, but the Cubs had chances against him in the first, third, fourth, fifth, and seventh. Each chance ended the same way, and the Cubs lost for the fourth time in five games. That might have been different if the Cubs’ approach at the plate had been better. Renteria said the Cubs didn’t swing at the best pitches, and he will continue to tell them to look for better chances in run-scoring opportunities. “It’s OK if it’s a broken record. You keep repeating that. You keep talking about it,” Renteria said. “You never stop talking about it until you start to understand it and get a good feel for it.”

THIS DATE IN BASEBALL 2005 — Brad Wilkerson hit for the cycle to lead Washington over Philadelphia, 7-3. 2009 — Tony Clark and Felipe Lopez each homered from both sides of the plate to lead Arizona to a 9-8 victory over Colorado. 2009 — Emilio Bonifacio hit the majors’ first inside-the-park homer on opening day since 1968, swiped three bases and had four hits in Florida’s 12-6 victory over Washington. 2009 — Alfonso Soriano hit his 50th career leadoff home run as the Cubs beat Houston, 4-2. 2012 — Adam Dunn tied a major league record with his eighth opening-day home run. He led off the sixth inning for the White Sox when he pulled a ball into the second deck of seats in right field off Texas starter Colby Lewis. Frank Robinson and Ken Griffey Jr. are the other major leaguers who have eight homers in openers.

Hard-hitting Cuban slugger remains in early season slump

White Sox right fielder Avisail Garcia misses a double hit by Minnesota Twins’ Chris Colabello during the third inning Thursday at U.S. Cellular Field. Manager Robin Ventura sat Garcia against the Royals on Saturday after going into an 0-for 13-slump.

By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Avisail Garcia is far from a finished product. “He has some discipline issues he needs to work on,” hitting coach Todd Steverson said. Plate discipline, that is. Big, strong and able to cover all of the strike zone and then some, Garcia has so much ability that it can actually be a hindrance, Steverson said. Learning how to harness it is part of the learning process for the 22-year-old right fielder. “He’s young, he has a lot of energy,” Steverson said. “Sometimes he thinks he has a little red cape hanging on his back and a big letter ‘S’ on the front of his shirt and that he can hit everything. You can’t hit everything. His selectivity has to be a little better and he knows it. He’s

working on it. If he stays in the zone he can be a topnotch hitter.” Fighting his way through an 0-for-13 slump, Garcia sat out the Sox’ 4-3 loss to the Royals on Saturday to work on things in the cage and during batting practice. Manager Robin Ventura also saw it as an opportunity to get Dayan Viciedo – who played right field with Alejandro De Aza staying in left against Royals lefty and Sox killer Bruce Chen – some needed at-bats. Ventura said Garcia, who has missed the Sox offensive party through the first four

games, looks out of sync. He was 3-for-18 through Friday. “He’s feeling for it a lot,” Ventura said. “It’s not a real confident swing that he’s had earlier. I’ve seen him in spring looking pretty good and feeling confident. It just feels like he’s tentative and feeling for it. So just give him a day in the cage to just get a good feel back and be back in there tomorrow.” While many of the hitters around him in the Sox’ lineup were making contributions to an average output of seven runs per game during the season-opening series against the Twins, Garcia

was relatively quiet. “He gets himself in good hitter’s counts but then he gets anxious and then he goes after some borderline pitches here and there,” Steverson said. “You see him stay in the zone and he can barrel up some balls pretty good.” Garcia’s tape-measure home runs in batting practice have captured the attention of teammates and coaches alike, but like Steverson says, “barreling up a 55 mph batting-practice fastball and hit it into no-man’s land and doing it off 95 mph [in a game] is a big switch. The talent and ability are there.

“Once he learns himself – he’s in his early 20s and he’s still developing into what he’s going to be. He has pop to all fields and sometimes that’s a help and sometimes it’s a hindrance. When you can go out to all parts of the park you think you are super human. “He just needs to make a pitcher come to him rather than hit every ball that comes up there. His discipline is getting a little better, we’ve been talking about it since spring training and he’s aware of it. He’s doing his best to figure it out.” The Sox lost for the third consecutive time after starting 2-0. They tied it in the eighth on an RBI single by Conor Gillaspie and a sacrifice fly by designated hitter Paul Konerko, who made his first start. The Royals took the lead back in the bottom of the inning on consecutive twoout doubles by Alex Gordon (against Scott Downs) and Sox nemesis Salvador Perez (against Maikel Cleto). John Danks allowed three runs over seven innings.


Danks tosses 7 innings in first start of season By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN KANSAS CITY, Mo. – John Danks had one rough inning, and overall, pitched well enough to win in the White Sox’ 4-3 loss to the Royals on Saturday. Danks, who allowed three runs over seven innings, walked four – including two in a two-run fourth when he walked in a run and gave up four (consecutively) of Paul his five hits Konerko allowed. But he finished strong by retiring the last eight batters he faced. Danks struck out six and won an argument to pitch the seventh. He threw 115 pitches. “It was fun to be out there in a game that counts,” said Danks, who physically feels like the Danks of 18 months ago before shoulder surgery. “I felt like I had pretty good

stuff. I was able to make the ball move. “Obviously four walks isn’t acceptable. That’s something to build on, so I’m excited to go out there and have a decent game.” Sox pitchers have issued 24 walks in their last four games.

Konerko settling into role Paul Konerko got his first start as the designated hitter against left-hander Bruce Chen. Adam Dunn rested, which has been the plan all along for the 38-year-old star playing in his last season. Konerko struck out twice, flied to left field and drove in the tying run in the eighth with a sacrifice fly. “You just get your work in,” Konerko said when asked how he goes about preparing in his new role. “Pretty much half the games you don’t play, you’re engaged, you’re getting loose, you’re preparing to get in there like I did in a couple of games [as a pinch-hitter].”

UConn sinks tourney’s top seed Bears need backup Huskies. The first time was on Dec. 2 when a foul-line jumper at the buzzer by Napier gave UConn a 65-64 victory. They didn’t have to wait that long to know they had this one. The Huskies, the seventh seed in the East Regional, had outstanding games on both ends of the court. Napier helped seal this game with about 2 minutes to play when he made two free throws for a 59-47 lead. That margin was the deficit the Huskies (31-8) faced in the opening minutes after a cold shooting start. “I knew we [were] going to get back in the game. They

knew we was going to get back in the game,” second-year coach Kevin Ollie said. “We live and die on defense and hopefully everybody understands that.” With Ollie in a defensive stance himself most of the game, the Huskies sidetracked the Florida offense by shutting down point guard Scottie Wilbekin and 3-point specialist Michael Frazier II, who scored a combined seven points. “UConn was very good with their pressure on our guards and we didn’t convert points,” Florida coach Billy Donovan said. “They scored a lot on us as well. So all the credit goes to them.”

Bulls trounce Wizards

Young leads Wildcats with 17 points

By JIM O’CONNELL The Associated Press ARLINGTON, Texas – Shabazz Napier looked up toward the Connecticut fans in the crowd at AT&T Stadium and held up one finger. The Huskies had just beaten overall No. 1 seed Florida, 63-53, Saturday in the Final Four. But Napier’s gesture had another meaning. “One more to go,” the firstteam All-American said. The victory got them into Monday night’s title game against Kentucky and it was as good as any team came up with this season against the Gators, who came in hav-

ing won 30 straight games, a streak that started after a loss to the Huskies four months ago. “We have been in a lot of dog fights,” Napier said. “We are just an experienced group. We believe in Shabazz Napier each other and continue to believe in each other. ... We are going to win. That is what we do.” Especially against Florida. The Gators lost only three times this season – once to Wisconsin in the second game of the season and twice to the



• WILDCATS WASHINGTON – Up-andcomers? Maybe. But Saturday, the Washington Wizards looked much like a team of up-and-pretenders. Then again, the Bulls’ defense will do that to teams.

Either we were surprised or we weren’t ready for the intensity they came out and played with.’’ Maybe both, considering the Bulls jumped out to a 2816 first-quarter lead, and then

The Bulls won, 96-78. took a 52-26 lead into the locker room at the half. Not exactly the 100.7 points a game the Wizards usually average. And the Bulls players loved every strangle-hold minute of it. “Yeah, they were [ticked],’’ Taj Gibson said, when asked if he could tell Wizards players were frustrated by the defense and physical play. “They were taking shots that they normally don’t take. We were taking away the long half-court passes, the crosscourt passes. We were double-teaming a couple of their strong shooters, and it worked out well. We were trying to

frustrate them and we did.’’ So although the game-high 25 points from D.J. Augustin was nice, especially with the reserve guard hitting six 3s, it was about shutting down the backcourt of John Wall and Bradley Beal that had Bulls players smiling. “I mean it just gives us so much confidence,’’ Noah said of his team’s defense. “I mean we lock up defensively, you can go out on the break, and it gives you opportunities to be more free on offense, knowing our defense is so good.’’

seconds left on the way to a 74-69 win. Two nights later, there were 2.3 seconds on the clock and Harrison was a few steps over to the left when he took the pass from his brother. The ball clanged in and he trotted backward and pumped his hands in the air. A few minutes later, he was hugging his mom in the stands. “It never comes down to just one possession,” Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan said. “It was right there for them, it’s just the other team had one possession better.” James Young led Kentucky with 17 points and Randle finished with 16, but only five boards to snap his string of three straight double-doubles. But Kentucky had an answer for Wisconsin’s do-everything 7-footer, Frank Kaminsky, who was held to eight points and five rebounds. Ben Brust and Sam Dekker had 15 each for the Badgers, who came up a game short of their first appearance in the final since 1941. Instead, it’s Kentucky going for its ninth national title and second in three years, with an almost completely rebuilt roster from 2012. It’s the way Calipari does it, like it or not.

help at tailback

Even after general manager Phil Emery’s impressive offseason overhaul, the Bears’ defense still has holes. Pick any position outside of defensive end and it likely is to be targeted in next month’s draft. The Bears’ offense, on the other hand, will return all 11 starters, and could be even more potent than it was last season, what with Jay Cutler healthy and an offensive line with a full year of playing together under Michael Ford its belt. Of course, that’s largely dependent on the health of Matt Forte. Coming off a career year and at the height of his diverse skills, Forte, 28, is the least expendable member of the offense outside of Cutler. He’s been remarkably durable in his six-year career despite a lot of heavy lifting – he’s averaged more than 315 touches a season – but it’s Emery’s job to have the best possible contingency plan in place. Clearly, that wasn’t plodding Michael Bush, who was released last month after his perceived strength – picking up tough yards – was perhaps the Bears’ biggest weakness on offense. That leaves 2013 undrafted rookie Michael Ford as the only current option behind Forte. The 5-foot-10, 216-pound Ford provided glimpses of being a formidable return man, but the next regular-season carry he gets will be his first. Emery has made it clear that his No. 2 requirement for a running back, beyond being able to run the ball, is to be solid in pass protection and blitz pickup. Ford never has even tried blocking in an NFL game. Thus, Ford can expect competition for the No. 2 spot. It’s likely the Bears will be eyeing running backs in next month’s draft. And though Emery said Monday that the Bears’ freeagent activity has “slowed down a tad,” they’ll continue investigating every opportunity to improve the roster. Chris Johnson was released by the Titans on Friday, but don’t expect the Bears to kick the tires. Although CJ actually would be a good scheme fit for Marc Trestman’s zone rushing offense, his me-first attitude wouldn’t work in Chicago.

Forte’s a bell cow back. Johnson is going somewhere where he’s at least offered a chance to be the guy. Of the current unrestricted free-agent running backs, the biggest names are Willis McGahee, Ronnie Brown and Andre Brown. McGahee and Ronnie Brown are ancient by running back standards, and Andre Brown is a powerful runner who has been unable to stay on the field. He’d be a solid option, but his lack of durability makes it hard to count on him. Former first-round pick Felix Jones is still only 26, but after acquiring him in a trade from the Cowboys last summer, the Steelers made no effort to re-sign him. Instead, they brought in LeGarrette Blount. Jones wouldn’t offer a clear upgrade over Ford, who has a similar body type and running style. Deji Karim and Darius Reynaud have had success as return men, but like Ford, they have little experience in the backfield. Justin Forsett, 28, is coming off a one-and-done season in Jacksonville that was marred by injuries. When healthy, Forsett’s experience and versatility make him intriguing, but he’s undersized and is coming off a fractured foot. Brian Leonard, Bernard Scott, LaRod Stephens-Howling and former Bear Kahlil Bell help round out the list of free agents. Scott and Leonard are on the wrong side of 30. Bell’s unlikely to get a third shot with the Bears. Similar to Forsett, Stephens-Howling is a versatile player who’s coming off a season-ending injury – usually the biggest reason why talented players still are available at this juncture of free agency. If Emery and Trestman are seeking a backup with more experience than Ford, they have options, but it seems most likely they’ll use the draft to create competition for Ford. It’s a deep class, but running back is one of the thinner positions. The options left in free agency aren’t a whole lot more enticing.

Irish offer Ruhland full ride By JEFF ARNOLD On his third recruiting visit to Notre Dame, Trevor Ruhland walked down the tunnel that leads from the Irish locker room to the football field and slapped the program’s iconic “Play Like A Champion Today” sign. At the time, he didn’t think it could get much better than that. Saturday, it did. Photo provided The Cary-Grove junior ofCary-Grove junior offensive lineman Trevor Ruhland (right) poses with fensive lineman picked up a Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly on Saturday in South Bend, Ind., scholarship offer from Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly – the after picking up a scholarship offer from the Irish.


highlight of Ruhland’s fourth visit to South Bend. Irish offensive line coach Harry Hiestand told Ruhland on Saturday morning that Kelly wanted to meet with him after Notre Dame’s spring practice ended. “I think you’re going to like the outcome,” Hiestand told Ruhland. Kelly offered Ruhland a full-ride scholarship – his 13th Division I offer overall. It’s one, Ruhland said Saturday, that shoots Notre Dame near the top of his list of options.

Ruhland also has five Big Ten offers along with others from Kentucky, Cal-Berkeley, Syracuse, Connecticut and Duke. “I don’t know if [Notre Dame] is my top school right now, but you can’t go wrong with one of the top football programs in the history of America,” Ruhland said. The 6-foot-4, 265-pound Ruhland visited Michigan State on Friday. Ruhland has said that the earliest he would make a choice about where he will play would be the end of the school year.

Ruhland has said that remaining close to home will factor into his final decision. South Bend’s proximity – along with the storied history of the Irish program – will put Saturday’s effort into serious contention. “I know it’s not a Big Ten school, but it’s 2½ hours away,” Ruhland said Thursday before he left for Michigan State. “Obviously, Notre Dame is competing for national championships ... and it’s just crazy that the legends that have played there and all of the great games they’ve played. It’s just unreal.”

Jacobs Golden Eagle Invitational: Kailash Panchapake-

McHENRY – Leave it to the player who was in the game for one pitch to end Saturday night’s marathon between the McHenry and Johnsburg baseball teams. McHenry pinch hitter Ryan Etzkorn was holding the scorebook when his name was called in the bottom of the 12th inning at Petersen Park. The left-handed hitting junior walked up and ripped a pitch just inside of third base to score Jack Glosson from second base for a 6-5 Fox Valley Conference crossover victory. The Warriors (4-1 overall, 1-0 FVC Valley Division) twice had been down to their final out, only to come up with clutch hits. Even Etzkorn figured himself as an unlikely hero. “I just went up there kind of blank,” he said. “I was just trying to be calm and hit anything that was a strike.

san finished in second place after losing in the championship singles match, 6-3, 6-4, to York’s Brendan Peterson. Panchapakesan defeated Ishaan Jaglan of Barrington in three sets to reach championship match. Jacobs finished in third place with 24 team points.

Glosson led off the bottom of the 12th with a ground ball up the middle that Skyhawks shortstop Collin Ridout could not handle. Bobby Miller bunted Glosson to second and Etzkorn then ended the game at about 3½ hours. “We competed well,” Rockweiler said. “We didn’t play very well [Friday in an 11-5 loss to Hononegah]. Robert’s probably our No. 2, but we like using him in relief. He’s going to throw strikes and he doesn’t give in.” Ridout struck out eight in 6⅓ innings as Johnsburg’s starter and retired 13 batters at one point. Skyhawks coach Sam Lesniak pulled Ridout with one out in the seventh and two runners on. Nick Brengman and Kevin Kordik combined for the last five innings in relief. Kordik took the loss. “We played outstanding,” Lesniak said. “For the pressure that was out there, I haven’t seen us handle that as well since I’ve been here. There were several big plays where our kids came through. They busted their tails and played exactly how we wanted to play. They just executed one more play than we did.”




I thought it was going to go foul.” The ball stayed a few inches inside the third-base line and Glosson easily scored the game-winner, after which Etzkorn was mobbed near first base. “I was overcome with joy,” Etzkorn said. “That was a really good moment.” Johnsburg (2-4, 0-1 FVC Fox) nearly had the game won in the seventh inning and again in the 11th. The Skyhawks got an RBI single from Alec Graef and a squeeze bunt RBI from B.J. Garcia for a 4-2 lead in the seventh. McHenry coach Brian Rockweiler called on another junior lefty pinch hitter, Dylan Weston, who delivered a two-out, two-RBI double to tie the score. The Skyhawks took another lead in the 11th on Garcia’s RBI single, but McHenry pitcher Robert Nagel came through with an RBI single to score Cody Freund from second and again tie the score at 5. “It was a little stressful,” said Nagel, who threw 5⅔ innings of relief for the victory. “The people behind me were making plays. I just wanted to keep throwing strikes.”

CRYSTAL LAKE – During a pitching duel, the tide turns on one big hit. That big hit Saturday came from Prairie Ridge designated hitter Marcus Sargeant as he smacked an RBI single up the middle in the bottom of the sixth inning to knock in Carson Getzelman with the go-around run as the Wolves defeated Woodstock, 2-1, in Fox Valley Conference crossover action. The two teams each had only three hits for the game. Prairie Ridge (2-6, 1-0) got on the board in the first inning after Getzelman led off with a single, stole second, advanced to third on a groundout and scored when Alex Ferguson’s pitch was in the dirt and got past catcher Eric Bell. The Blue Streaks (2-2, 0-2) finally got to Prairie Ridge starter Ben Cilano in the sixth on an RBI groundout by Bell that scored Austin Butts, who hit a one-out double and advanced to third on a passed ball.

In the bottom of the inning, Getzelman led off with another single. He moved to second on a sacrifice by Daniel Pecoraro and advanced to third on a groundout by Austin Covers. Sargeant then came up with the dramatic base hit to put the Wolves back on top. Sargeant said that he wasn’t looking for a certain pitch in the critical situation. “I was just trying to put the ball in play and give us a chance to score, obviously, with the runner at third,” Sargeant said. Cilano then took care of business in the seventh, working around a leadoff double by Zach Kammin to strike out the side to end the game. Cilano finished with 12 strikeouts to finish with a complete-game victory and wasn’t aware of that fact until after the game. “I didn’t even know I had 12 strikeouts,” Cilano said. “I’m just happy that Marcus came in with the big hit and then we were able to close it out in the last inning.”

Prairie Ridge coach Glen Pecoraro had a simple, fundamental plan after Getzelman got on to lead off the sixth. “Marcus came through for us,” Pecoraro said. “When Getzelman got on, obviously we wanted to bunt him over to get to our Nos. 3 and 4 guys with Covers and Sarge and I thought one of those guys would come through for us. It worked out and Marcus put a good swing on a curveball.” Ferguson was the hardluck loser for the Blue Streaks, striking out five while pitching a complete game. Woodstock coach John Oliveira said he was pleased with the number of chances his team had to score off Cilano. “Close games are fun to play regardless if you won or lost,” Oliveira said. “I’m proud of my kids, how we played defense and we gave ourselves opportunities to put runs on the board, but couldn’t come through in the clutch.”

Birr has confidence in his defense • TIGERS-GATORS Continued from page C1 “I didn’t have to worry at all about missing on a pitch,” Birr said. “I knew we had a shot because my defense was there. “When they came up with big plays for me it felt like a huge burden was lifted and it proves that I can trust the guys behind me.” Badgley saw that trust in the form of Birr working

fast and confident throughout. “When your pitcher throws strikes and works fast, the guys are excited to play behind him because they know they’re going to get some balls,” Badgley said. “They’re not just standing and waiting around.” The Tigers had the lead for most of the game, scoring two runs in the second, third and sixth innings and collected nine hits while the Gators (3-1, 0-1) were limited to only five hits.

South also committed four errors that led to four unearned runs. Gators pitcher Ryan Wilkening was charged with only two earned runs but was hit with the loss and left the game after six innings trailing 6-1. “[Central] made some really nice plays out there,” Gators coach Brian Bodga said. “Those plays were inning-changers and [Birr] threw strikes, but we hit it right at them all game.”

Kuchar takes 4-shot lead at Houston Open ond-round leader Garcia and Cameron Tringale. The three will be paired together on Sunday. “It’s a nice position to have played well last week, to have been in the last group with a chance to win and again to come back this week, completely different course, and have another shot to win,” Kuchar said. Kuchar’s last win came at the Memorial last year, and he has eight top 10 finishes this season in 10 events. He’ll have the opportunity add to that resume on Sunday, weather permitting, as well as fuel his surging confidence leading into next week’s Masters, where he finished in a tie for eighth last year. The prospect of a winner’s share of nearly $1.2-million, however, has Kuchar locked in on this weekend first – even with the prospect of competing for his first major championship looming next week. “I’ve been playing some steady golf for a couple of years now and

The ASSOCIATED PRESS HUMBLE, Texas – Matt Kuchar didn’t have the result he had hoped for while playing in the final pairing at last week’s Texas Open. The six-time PGA Tour winner, who closed with a final-round 75 on his way to a fourth-place finish last week, will have the opportunity to show what he learned from that disappointing finish Matt at this week’s Hous- Kuchar ton Open. Playing in the final pairing, Kuchar vaulted past a struggling Sergio Garcia with a 4-under -par 68 on Saturday – overcoming windy conditions at the Golf Club of Houston to match the low round of the day and take a four-shot lead after three rounds. Kuchar stands at 15 under overall heading into Sunday’s final round, four shots ahead of sec-

feel like my chances of playing well tomorrow are pretty good,” Kuchar said. “Having a four-shot lead is a great position to be in.” Kraft Nabisco Championship: At Rancho Mirage, Calif., Michelle Wie and Lexi Thompson know exactly what’s at stake Sunday at Mission Hills – for themselves and the attention-starved LPGA Tour. “I think it’s great for the tour and it’s going to be a lot of fun,” Wie said Saturday after tying Thompson for the third-round lead in the Kraft Nabisco Championship. “I think Lexi is a really entertaining golfer. I like to think I’m somewhat entertaining as well. So, I think the both of us paired together is great.” They’re each trying to win their first major title, a victory that would be a big boost to the tour that felt slighted and upstaged this week when Golf Digest put model Paulina Gretzky on its cover after long ignoring the top female players.

BEST PRACTICES Terry & Aaron Maryniw

Stay motivated to save for retirement No matter your age, focusing on future needs can help you save for retirement. For most of us still working, the topic of retirement triggers mixed emotions. While the dream of retiring is appealing, the reality of entering our “golden years” often is marked by uncertainty. It’s not surprising that the Employee Benefit Research Institute reports that only 13 percent of Americans workers are very confident about having enough money to retire comfortably. Whether your retirement is decades away or at hand, it’s never too late to plan and save for retirement. Here are some easy ways to get and stay motivated: Picture the positive: Imagine your life in retirement. Does it start when you’re 45 or 75? Do you travel to exotic destinations or spend winters at your vacation home? Perhaps you’d like to help your grandchildren with their college tuition. When money isn’t an issue, your retirement dreams can be unlimited. Thinking of saving for retirement as a way of achieving specific dreams puts a positive spin on the activity. Picture the opposite: Now think of your life as a retiree in a different way. We’ve seen reports that the Social Security trust fund could experience a 25 percent shortfall in about 20 years. What if you can’t count on that income to supplement what you’ve saved for retirement? What if health problems erode your disposable income? What is retirement like if you have to take lowpaying part-time jobs to subsist? Staying realistic about the possibilities – positive and negative – may provide the discipline you need to keep saving. Set milestone goals: It may be easier to save for retirement if you break it down into smaller steps. Set short-term goals, such as “in one year I’ll pay off a credit card and divert that money to retirement savings” or “I want to double my savings in the next five years.” When you achieve a milestone, celebrate your accomplishment and then set a new goal. Keep things simple: If possible, automate your retirement savings. Arrange to have a portion of your pay contributed directly into a retirement account. And consider signing up for automatic increases to keep pace with your plans for retirement. Make small changes: Boosting your retirement savings doesn’t mean you have to make significant changes. Look for opportunities in everyday activities – such as skipping the daily gourmet coffee to save around $100 each month – and invest that money for your future. Small amounts contributed today have the potential to grow into much larger savings by retirement.

Talk to a financial professional: Carefully examine where you stand financially, then devise a plan to help achieve or maintain that plan in retirement. Work to periodically recharge your retirement dreams. Track your spending and beware of added fees and charges. Using a credit card can rack up expenses quickly, especially when you factor in interest. Try using cash instead. A lot of times people’s spending habits change when they start using cash because they realize what’s going out and how hard they had to work for the money.

Participants in the 2013 Chicago Tough Mudder jump over a pit of fire. The 2013 event was held in Seneca. Both the Chicago Tough Mudder and Mudderella races this summer will be held at the Richmond Hunt Club. They are expected bring in about $1.8 million in regional spending and could bring in even more in the coming years. Richmond Hunt Club has a contract with Tough Mudder to host the event for five years, said owner Richard Wonderlic. See more photos at

Dirty business McHenry County companies see money in muddy obstacle races By CYNTHIA WOLF Muscle-searing. Sweat-rousing. Mud-drenching. Sound like fun? To a growing number of fitness die-hards, indeed it does. And for the coordinators and host communities of majordraw obstacle-racing events such as Tough Mudder, Mudderella and Hard Charge, it’s big business. McHenry County, which hosted Hard Charge Chicago in Richmond last summer, will play host again to Hard Charge this year, and will add the much bigger Tough Mudder and Mudderella events as well. These and similar events nationwide drew an estimated 1.6 million participants in 2013, according to the Los Angeles Times. Other races include Warrior Dash, which will be held in Channahon this year, and the female-only Dirty Girl Mud Run, which will be at the Lake County Fairgrounds. Hard Charge, Tough Mudder and Mudderella, combined, are expected to draw between 20,000 and 30,000 participants and spectators to McHenry County in May and July. Not all will book a hotel room, but a significant portion will. And even those who don’t will spend, on average, $81 a day at local businesses, according to Visit McHenry County. “It’s definitely a great benefit for McHenry County to land these events,” said Jaki Berggren, executive director of Visit McHenry County, formerly the McHenry County Convention and Visitors Bureau. “It brings in quite a few outside visitors who would not otherwise be here, and who will see that there’s a viable visitor economy if they choose to return to McHenry County at a later date to enjoy other experiences,” Berggren said. Hard Charge had an estimated 2013 area economic impact of $56,700 during its activity Aug. 10 at the Richmond Hunt Club, according to Visit McHenry County data. The Tough Mudder and Mudderella races this summer should bring in about $1.8 million and could bring in more in the coming years. Richmond Hunt Club has an exclusive contract with Tough Mudder to host the event for five years,

Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but Wonderlic said it didn’t guarantee the race would stay in Richmond. The news already has generated buzz throughout the area. “It’s the talk of the town,” Wonderlic said. “I think the exposure McHenry County is going to get is fantastic.” After hosting Hard Charge in 2013, Wonderlic sought out a deal with Tough Mudder, which he called “the granddaddy of the industry.” Last year, Tough Mudder held its Chicago race in Seneca. The event is

Although Richmond has been seen as a “pass-through” town on

the way to Wisconsin, Wonderlic said he expects the race will introduce more people to outdoor adventures in the area.

Extravagant giving isn’t necessarily foolish spending Dear Dave, My husband and I are debt-free, and we have several hundred thousand dollars in savings. We pay for our children and grandchildren to visit during Christmas each year, but my mother thinks this is foolish spending. What do you think?

– Linda

Dear Linda, I’m sure your mom loves you guys a lot, but she’s wrong twice on this one. First, she should mind her own business. Second, you guys have obviously worked hard and been extremely smart and disciplined with your finances. For someone in your situation, bring-

DAVE SAYS Dave Ramsey ing your family together for one of the most important days of the year isn’t foolish on any level. I think it’s awful that you’re even having this conversation with her. One of my great dreams years ago was to have the ability to do things like that for my family. When I was 22, I worked for a real estate guy who would bring his entire family in from all over the country once a year to go skiing for a week. He and his wife would pay for

everything. They would rent a nice chalet, and spend that time having fun as a family and growing closer together. I sort of borrowed that idea a while back. Once a year we’ll take all our kids and their spouses on a nice vacation. We pay for everything, and it’s just one of our gifts to them because we love them. So, I think your mom is completely wrong. There are three things you can do with money: spend, save and give. Trust me, giving is the most fun of all.

– Dave

Dear Dave, Is it possible to book a hotel room

without a credit card?

– James

Dear James, Absolutely, it is. Just use a debit card. I don’t have a credit card. When it comes to finances, the only pieces of plastic you’ll find in my wallet are two debit cards – one for my business, and the other for my personal account. A Visa or Mastercard-branded debit card can be used anywhere credit cards are accepted. And the best part is that you’re not borrowing money when you use one. The funds come directly from your checking account. Some hotels


might put a temporary hold on your account for the amount in question, so you need to make sure you actually have the money in the bank. But that just makes sense, doesn’t it? You shouldn’t be traveling without money in the first place. If you’re too broke to travel, then you need to stay home.

Cary travel agent earns top sales award CARY – Neelie Kruse of Cary Travel Express was recently honored as a recipient of the 2013 Million Dollar Agent Sales Award by the MAST Travel Network, a sales and marketing travel agency trade group based in Oakbrook Terrace.

“I hope they embrace it and crave it a bit more in their lives,” he said. This summer’s Hard Charge Chicago is scheduled for July 19 at Richardson Adventure Farm in Spring Grove. Tough Mudder Chicago will be May 10-11 at the Richmond Hunt Club, and Mudderella, marketed to the female set, will be May 31 at the Richmond Hunt Club. What’s involved? Well, these are not your run-of-themill 5Ks. Hard Charge and Tough Mudder build challenging, miles-long courses (4 miles for Hard Charge and about 10 for Tough Mudder) that feature military-style obstacles. Tough Mudder is billed as “probably the toughest event on the planet” and features an obstacle called Electroshock Therapy where participants run through a field of live wires. In another, called Electric Eel, participants crawl on their stomachs through mud under a tangle of live wires. Those who touch the wires “find out what it feels like to get slapped in the face by a jellyfish,” according to Tough Mudder’s website. Others include jumping into icy water and jumping over fire. Hard Charge has both a Charge for Glory (competitive, timed and marshaled, as well as filmed for Comcast SportsNet Chicago) and a Charge for Fun, in which heats are not timed and participants may skip some obstacles, with the goal

simply to finish and have fun. “We had 700 to 800 participants last year,” said Lindsay Babb, director of public relations and marketing for Hard Charge. “We really wanted to bring the event to the Chicago area because we have strong TV distribution on Comcast SportsNet Chicago. “We looked a little bit north, and McHenry County was great,” she continued. “We had formed some relationships with [Visit McHenry County] and decided that it would be a really great place.” This year’s event will include a Hard Charge for kids, too, with a child-appropriate version of the obstacles, complete with a mud-crawl portion, of course. “Those events are open to kids ages 5 and up,” Babb said. Berggren said McHenry County has the dual draw of featuring open spaces amenable to creating obstacle-race courses and being located about one hour from Rockford, Milwaukee and Chicago. Carol Gottshall, media relations associate with Tough Mudder, said coordinators there are excited about this May’s McHenry County debuts. “The land at Richmond Hunting Club definitely drew our attention – the varied terrain, with rugged trails, creeks and ponds, will allow us to build a challenging course for our participants,” Gottshall said. “We’re excited about the 2014 event and look forward to beginning discussions around plans for 2015.”

5 Signs You’d Make a Great Boss By Catherine Conlan Monster Contributing Writer It takes a little something extra to be a manager, and not everybody has it. If you’re thinking about moving up the ladder at your organization, see if you have any of these five signs that you’d make a great boss.

You’re there for people. If you feel you can stand up for your team, that can serve you well as a boss, says Dave Popple, president of Corporate Insights. A good boss will “focus on employees first, customers second,” he says. “If the majority of what the boss says is focused on customers and sales and little is said about employees, they will not stand in the gap for their employees when things get stressful and the best employees will leave.”

while giving an update that Project X is on schedule, an employee that gives an update on a project that is inconsistent with past updates, a sales person that is very confident of a needed sale that doesn’t add up with other available data are all indicators that deserve follow up -- now.” Leaders who accept the reports that there isn’t a problem even when the evidence says otherwise won’t succeed for long. “Someone who is observant and follows up on what they have seen and heard has an extremely valuable management skill,” Brush says.

You’re empathetic.

You’re observant.

Someone who can feel and understand another person’s pain and happiness is cut out to be a good boss, says Doug Fleener, president and managing partner for Dynamic Experiences Group. “They’re better able to read employees and connect with them as a boss and person,” he says.

The best leaders prevent problems, says Kathleen Brush, and to prevent problems, you have to be observant. “An employee fidgeting

A recent study by the Center for Creative Leadership finds that empathy is fundamental to leadership because it is a key part of

developing relationships. It defines empathy as being sensitive to others who seem overworked; showing interest in other people’s hopes and dreams; being willing to help employees with personal problems, and being compassionate when others discuss a personal loss -- is positively related to job performance. The study found that bosses who show empathy to the people they manage are seen as better performers by their own managers. “Unfortunately some hiring/promoting managers misunderstand that trait,” Fleener says. “They see it as being sympathetic, which is a problem as sympathetic managers don’t often hold people accountable.”

You’re willing to be coached. If you can take feedback and coaching well and grow from it, that trait can serve you well as a boss. “A person who appreciates and seeks out feedback usually has a healthy viewpoint on feedback,” Fleener says. “They’re able to give their direct reports feedback in a direct and tactful way. People who don’t take feedback well rarely

give it.” It’s important to be flexible, Popple says. “They should be able to adjust their leadership style to the situation,” he says.

You’ve got talent. Obviously, you need to get the job done. If you’re a high performer, you can create a culture and framework where things get done, says Patrick Lynch, president of the Frontier Group. “This can provide a great training and advancement opportunity,” he says.

TODAY - It’s time to step into the spotlight. Your talent and hard work deserve recognition, and it’s up to you to draw attention to your accomplishments. If you don’t act on your own behalf, it’s likely that someone else will try to take credit for your ideas. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- An unhappy past interaction with someone will repeat itself if you let that person back into your life. Keeping secrets from a friend will cause irreparable damage. Honesty is necessary. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A change in scenery will do you good. Visit a place that you find relaxing to reduce your stress.

Distance yourself from conflicts that you are facing at home or at work. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You take great strides if you capitalize on your knowledge and skills. Your imaginative ideas can lead to financial gains and favorable recognition. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Spending time alone will give you the opportunity to work on a project and bypass a petty disagreement. Don’t waste energy debating, when you should be keeping a low profile and avoiding unsavory situations. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your job could

be in jeopardy if you believe false information. Make sure you are aware of any details concerning your position. It’s up to you to keep abreast of matters. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your personal affairs are no one’s business. Don’t let comments or criticism from family members get to you. Do your usual thing and keep your personal thoughts a secret. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Someone will take advantage of your good nature. If a colleague has been extremely demanding lately, explain politely that you need some time for your own devices. You have to look

after your needs first. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Don’t spread yourself too thin, or your mental, emotional and physical health will suffer. It’s OK to say no every now and then. You cannot be responsible for everybody’s problems. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- A joint venture will present difficulties. Get all the details and flush out any problems before you get involved. Don’t feel guilty about changing your mind or pulling out completely. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Someone will feel left out. Find out who, and do something to encourage his or her

involvement. Express your feelings and show your devotion. A thoughtful gesture will make a big impact. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Unfinished business will cause a financial or legal strain. Take care of impending difficulties before things get out of hand. Make efforts to improve your diet and physical health. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Keep an eye on your cash and your possessions. Work on projects that you’ve left unfinished. Don’t allow anyone to take advantage of you.
