Groups move amendments ahead Lawsuit already filed to stop citizen referendums from appearing on November ballot By KEVIN P. CRAVER kcraver@shawmedia.com Two public petitions to amend the Illinois Constitution to limit the power and incumbency of the General Assembly are being filed to appear on the Nov. 4 ballot. A political action committee chaired by Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner filed a petition Wednesday for an amendment to impose term limits on General Assembly members and make other changes to the body. Another group

will deliver its signatures Thursday afternoon for an amendment to take the power to redraw legislative district maps after each U.S. Census from state lawmakers. Both groups say they have more than enough signatures to ensure their proposed amendments get on the ballot and survive challenges by legislative foot soldiers. Rauner’s group, Term Limits and Reform, filed more than 590,000 signatures with the Illinois State Board of Elections, almost twice the number needed. Yes For Independent Maps, which will

file the redistricting amendment, says it has more than 500,000 signatures. But they also have to survive a court challenge. The general counsel for the Democratic Party of Illinois, which is chaired by powerful House Speaker Michael Madigan, has already filed a lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court to keep both questions from appearing on the ballot. The Illinois Supreme Court threw a term limits amendment off the ballot 20 years ago. “All these reforms, especially

term limits, will go a long way toward changing the insider culture of Springfield and send a message that power belongs in the hands of the people, not the career politicians and special interests,” Rauner said in a statement. The proposed amendment limits House and Senate members to serving no more than eight years. It also restructures the General Assembly by lowering the number of Senate districts from 59 to 41. Each district

Uncertainty in academia As role expands, adjuncts struggle to make ends meet By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – A master’s degree or doctorate does not guarantee health benefits or earnings any greater than a $20-something thousand annual salary in the world of academia. As community colleges and universities deal with tighter budgets,

adjunct professors have taken on a greater role at institutions across the country, giving colleges a cheaper alternative to tenured professors. The trend is no different at McHenry County College, where adjunct faculty make up between 60 to 70 percent of those teaching classes. But as demand for adjunct instructors increases, the ability for those filling the roles

to make ends meet has become more difficult. Adjunct professors can work no more than 29 credit hours per year at the college to keep them under the 30-credit-hour limit that would make them a full-time employee and require the college to offer health insurance.

Don’t be down in dumps about Illinois SPRINGFIELD – Illinois is a terrific place to live. At least that is what I thought 15 years ago when I moved back to my home state after a stint as a reporter in Las Vegas. The weather leaves a bit to be desired, but folks here are pretty down to earth. And there is a certain Midwestern sensibility here that I haven’t found in other places I’ve lived, such as Texas and Nevada. So imagine my amazement when I read a Gallup poll this past week that says one-fourth of all Illinoisans believe they live in the worst place in America. Yeah, one out of four think the Prairie State is as bad as it gets. By comparison, only 1 percent of Iowans say that about their state. With so many self-esteem issues, perhaps it’s time for us Illinoisans to collectively lay down on a therapist’s couch and share our woes. One can almost hear our collective neuroses coming to light: “Well, doctor, we had faulty father figures. You know: Blagojevich, Ryan, Walker and that other fella who went to prison – Kerner.

VIEWS Scott Reeder And, doctor, we have trust issues. Our politicians lie to us. They will tell us a tax hike is temporary and then turn around and try to make it permanent.” One can almost picture a therapist sagely nodding and saying, “Do you think you may bring some of these problems on yourself?” “Well, doctor, we keep finding ourselves attracted to the wrong kind of people.” Other states don’t have this woeis-us mindset. For example, 75 percent of Alaskans and Montanans rank their state No.1. Perennially proud Texas has 68 percent of its residents say their state is tops. So why are we Illinoisans so down in the dumps about our home? Well, much of it has to do with the way we are governed. Of the last eight men we have elected governor, four have ended up in prison. That’s

just plain sad. But, but last year, a Gallup poll found something else: 71 percent of Illinoisans believe their taxes are too high. We ranked fourth in the nation for taxpayer resentment. Let’s face it, folks are tired of being lied to. Back in 2011, the Legislature voted in the middle of the night during a lame-duck session to jack our income tax rates up 67 percent. But they promised it would be temporary. Now those same folks who promised the tax hike would partially expire in 2015 want to make it permanent. In fact, don’t be surprised if we see a vote to do just that before June 1. But that’s politics – not Illinois. Illinois is more than the shenanigans that happen under the dome in Springfield. We are 12 million people strong, a state with a proud heritage. We are a land that produced Lincoln, Grant, Reagan and Obama. We have a proud history in agriculture, industry and science. We are the honored home of the University of Chicago, Northwestern,

the University of Illinois and other world-class institutions. I grew up on a farm near Galesburg and live in a village near Springfield. I love the rolling prairie and watching my daughters with their livestock projects. I have family members in the Chicago suburbs, as well as deep southern Illinois. And I have friends from Chicago. People show enormous pride in their region. But somehow many of us can be proud of being from downstate, the suburbs or Chicago but not of being from Illinois. Illinois has big problems but not insurmountable ones. It’s time to stop listening to the politicians’ narratives and think for ourselves. With a bit of perseverance, we can weather the challenges we face. We Illinoisans should not only expect the best from those we elect – but from ourselves.

Wednesday’s approach is more novel. “This strategy obviously has some merit,” said professor George Christ of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, who wasn’t involved with the new study. While larger studies must verify the findings, “the concept of physical therapy coupled with these regenerative strategies is going to be really important.”

Called volumetric muscle loss, a severe enough injury can leave an arm or leg essentially useless.

8STATE BRIEFS Chicago sees more than 3,000 pothole claims CHICAGO – Chicago has hit a pinnacle of pothole claims. The Chicago Sun-Times reported that so far this year 3,100 pothole-related claims have been filed with the city. That’s more than the total of nearly 2,450 for the last three years combined. The 2014 total includes 1,200 claims introduced at Wednesday’s Chicago City Council meeting. The Chicago city clerk processes damage claims of up to $2,000 before passing the claims on to the City Council’s Finance Committee. The claims are for damage like flat tires, bent wheel rims and realignments. Motorists need to provide a police report along with a paid repair bill or two estimates. Payments can take up to six months.

Dixon woman’s body pulled from Rock River DIXON – Authorities have pulled the body of a missing Dixon woman from the Rock River. The Telegraph in Dixon reported that 56-year-old Melva M. Meridith was pulled from the river Tuesday evening. She was last seen leaving her northern Illinois home Tuesday morning. The Lee County Sheriff’s Department says a call came in reporting her missing about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. Two hours later deputies received a report of a car in the Rock River between Dixon and Sterling. The car was empty but authorities continued to search the river, later finding Meridith’s body.

Program probes rebut Ill. House panel Quinn’s cleanup claim OKs $100M for By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Gov. Pat Quinn says his biggest achievements include cleaning up Illinois government after two scandal-plagued predecessors went to prison, but two back-to-back probes into hiring and management in the Chicago Democrat’s administration have given his Republican challenger fodder to paint a contrasting picture. A day after Quinn’s administration confirmed that Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez’s office subpoenaed records related to Quinn’s 2010 troubled anti-violence program, businessman Bruce Rauner appeared in Springfield on Wednesday and tried to link Quinn to imprisoned ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Illinois’ history of corruption. The new probe comes after a federal lawsuit last week alleging wrongful hiring practices in Quinn’s Department of Transportation – which Illinois’ Republican congressmen questioned Wednesday – and The Associated Press found that the Illinois Medicaid program paid millions for

race, expected to be one of the most competitive and expensive nationwide. Rauner, a venture capitalist from Winnetka, portrays himself as an outsider who’ll clean up Springfield. But Quinn, who in a January speech said that he’d “restored integrity to state government,” said Wednesday that he’s tackled issues head on and addressed problems, including with his Neighborhood Recovery Initiative Program. “If anything isn’t going in the right direction, the important thing is to identify the problem, hold departments accountable and make sure we act swiftly to squarely address the problem and resolve it,” he said after calling for more funding for the Monetary Award Program benefiting college students. “That’s what I’ve done my whole life.” Earlier this year, an audit detailed “pervasive deficiencies” in implementing the $55 million anti-violence program, along with sloppy and missing paperwork. The report questioned about 40 percent of the expenditures by service providers.

Obama library By JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press

SPRINGFIELD – An Illinois House committee backed a $100 million plan Wednesday to lure Barack Obama’s presidential library to his home state, despite objections from Republicans who welcome the attraction but want no part of taxpayer financing. House Speaker Michael Madigan said Illinois, which is already home to Abraham Lincoln’s library and historic sites, would lose an opportunity to document the 44th president’s legacy if it doesn’t up the ante. “We’re talking about a son of Illinois who became president of the United States,” Madigan told the Executive Committee before it voted 7-4 on party lines to send the proposal to the floor. “This library and museum will be dedicated to that son of Illinois, and it will become an international tourist attraction.” Obama began his career as a community organizer

in Chicago before he took a seat in the Illinois Senate in 1997, stepping up to the U.S. Senate in 2005 and assuming the presidency just four years later. Obama’s rise came as two consecutive Illinois governors went to federal prison for corruption – including Rod Blagojevich, in part for trying to sell or trade Obama’s vacant congressional seat. Obama himself has been dogged by association with a contributor who went to prison in the Blagojevich scandal as well as having to continually shake off Chicago’s ageold political reputation. The committee vote was the second in as many weeks, after Republicans complained that the first vote was conducted by Democrats in the fast-and-loose style for which the state has a reputation. The University of Chicago, where Obama once taught constitutional law, Chicago State University, and the University of Illinois at Chicago all offered host sites for the library.

Ex-Rep. confined to home pending child porn trial The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – A federal judge on Wednesday released a former Illinois state representative on $4,500 bond but ordered him confined to his home pending trial on charges of possessing child pornography.

Keith Farnham, 66, of Elgin also was barred from using computers or having unsupervised contact with anyone under 18. He must wear a monitoring bracelet and the judge ordered Farnham’s wife to be his custodian. That requires her to report if he meets the

conditions of his release. Farnham, a Democrat, resigned his seat in March after agents searched his home and state office. He hasn’t entered a plea. A complaint released Monday said Farnham possessed videos depicting child

pornography on a computer. The document also provided graphic details about images allegedly sought and traded by Farnham online. Some were allegedly of children under 10 years old. Farnham previously supported state legislation that

aimed to toughen penalties against child pornography owners. After he resigned last month, Farnham said he had to attend to “battling serious health issues.” He appeared at the court hearing with a portable oxygen tank.

Illinois man pleads not guilty in Wisconsin death RACINE, Wis. – An Illinois man charged with killing a teenage runaway in 1997 and leaving her body in a Wisconsin marsh has pleaded not guilty to two felony charges. James P. Eaton is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse. Online court records say he pleaded not guilty Wednesday. Messages left with his two public defenders were not immediately returned. The 36-year-old from Palatine was arrested in Chicago this month. He’s accused of killing Amber Creek, a 14-yearold also from Palatine. Her battered body was found in a Racine County marsh. Police were unable to develop a suspect for years. They say a federal DNA database connected Eaton to the crime in February, and that investigators confirmed by tailing him and recovering DNA from a cigarette he discarded.

3rd suspect charged in slaying of Chicago girl CHICAGO – A third suspect has been charged in the slaying of a 14-year-old Chicago girl who police say was shot in the back by another 14-yearold during an argument over a boy. The girl accused of pulling the trigger and a 17-year-old boy accused of hiding the gun used in the shooting were charged earlier in the week. On Wednesday, authorities announced first-degree murder charges against the girl’s uncle, 25-year-old Donnell Flora. He’s accused of providing the handgun and accompanying the suspected shooter to the fight. He was to appear in bond court Wednesday. It was not clear if he already had a lawyer. The two others have not been identified because they’re charged as juveniles. Fourteen-year-old Endia Martin was shot Monday in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

8NATION BRIEFS GOP blocks Democrats’ minimum wage raise WASHINGTON – Senate Republicans derailed a Democratic drive Wednesday to raise the federal minimum wage, blocking a cornerstone of President Barack Obama’s economic plans and ensuring the issue will be a major feature of this fall’s congressional elections. Facing the threat of a GOP Senate takeover, Democrats have forced votes on a procession of bills designed to amplify their message of economic fairness. Republican senators accused Democrats of playing politics by pushing a minimum wage measure designed to lure voters but too expensive for employers and sure to result in lost jobs and higher inflation. “This is about trying to make this side of the aisle look bad and hard-hearted, and to try to rescue this midterm election,” said No. 2 Senate GOP leader John Cornyn of Texas.

Airlines offering fewer flights, fewer seats WASHINGTON – A government watchdog confirmed Wednesday what airline passengers are finding when they try to book a flight: Service to communities of all sizes is declining, but especially to small and medium-size airports. There are fewer flights and fewer airplane seats available than there were seven years ago, the Government Accountability Office said. Smaller destinations were particularly affected, with flights down as much as 24 percent and seats down as much as 18 percent since 2007.

Former Justice Stevens: Donations aren’t speech WASHINGTON – Campaign donations pay for more than political ads and should not be protected as free speech, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens told a Senate panel Wednesday in urging them to rein in the billions of dollars shaping elections. The retired justice reminded lawmakers that political donations funded the burglary at the Watergate office complex under President Richard Nixon. That break-in at the Democratic National Committee is not speech, Stevens argued in a rare appearance of a former justice in the Senate.

Colo. eyes edibles rules as more people eat pot DENVER – Colorado’s marijuana experiment is threatened by the popularity of eating it instead of smoking it, leading the pot industry to join health officials and state regulators to try to curb the problem of consumers ingesting too much weed. A task force gathered Wednesday to start brainstorming ways to educate consumers, including a standard warning system on popular edibles, which is the industry term for marijuana that has been concentrated and infused into food or drink.

“Every prison is saying, ‘We have it under control, trust us,’ ” said Texas attorney Maurie Levin, who spent Wednesday preparing new briefs questioning that state’s execution practices. “This just underscores in bold that we can’t trust them, and prisons have to be accountable to the public and transparent in the method by which they carry out executions.” The 38-year-old Lockett, convicted of shooting a woman and watching as two accomplices buried her alive, was declared unconscious 10 minutes after the first of three drugs was administered Tuesday. Three minutes later, he began breathing heavily, writhing, clenching his teeth

and straining to lift his head. Authorities halted the execution, but Lockett died of a suspected heart attack more than 40 minutes after the process began. An autopsy began Wednesday to determine his precise cause of death, and Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin named a member of her cabinet to lead a review of the state’s execution procedures. The White House said the execution fell short of the humane standards required. Courts, including the Supreme Court, have been reluctant to halt executions over arguments that they violate an inmate’s constitutional guarantee against cruel and unusual punishment.

In four rulings over the past 135 years, the Supreme Court has upheld the use of the firing squad (1879), the electric chair (1890), the ability of a state to try to execute a condemned inmate by electrocution again after a first attempt failed (1947) and lethal injection (2008). The Constitution “does not demand the avoidance of all risk of pain in carrying out executions,” Chief Justice John Roberts said in the court’s 2008 decision upholding Kentucky’s lethal injection system. Still, a minority of the high court has shown some recent trepidation about the secrecy of the process used by many states.

Hundreds rescued from post-storm floodwaters By MELISSA NELSON–GABRIEL and MICHAEL KUNZELMAN The Associated Press PENSACOLA BEACH, Fla. – People were plucked off rooftops or climbed into their attics to get away from fast-rising waters when nearly 2 feet of rain fell on the Florida Panhandle and Alabama coast in the span of about 24 hours, the latest bout of severe weather that began with tornadoes in the Midwest. On Wednesday, roads were chewed up into pieces or wiped out entirely and neighborhoods were inundated, making rescues difficult for hundreds of people who called for help when they were caught off guard by the single rainiest day ever recorded in Pensacola. Boats and Humvees zigzagged through the flooded streets to help stranded residents. A car and truck plummeted 25 feet when portions of a scenic highway collapsed, and one Florida woman died when she drove her car into high water, officials said. Near the Alabama-Florida line, water started creeping into Brandi McCoon’s mobile home, so her fiance, Jonathan Brown, wrapped up her nearly 2-year-old son Noah in a blanket and they swam in neck-deep water to their car about 50 feet away. Then, the car was flooded. “Every which way we turned, there was a big ol’ pile of water,” she said. Brown called 911 and eventually a military vehi-

Kyle Schmitz was at his Pensacola home with his 18-month-old son Oliver on Tuesday night when heavy rain dropped during a 45-minute span. He gathered up his son, his computer and important papers and left. “I opened the garage and the water immediately flowed in like a wave,” he said. “The water was coming up to just below the hood of my truck and I just gassed it.” Schmitz and his son also made it out safely.

Military benefits survive defense cuts By DONNA CASSATA The Associated Press WASHINGTON – An Army corporal would get a full housing allowance to rent an off-base apartment while a military family will see little change in their grocery costs at the commissary as an election-year Congress rebuffed Pentagon efforts to trim military benefits. The House Armed Services personnel subcommittee voted unanimously on Wednesday to leave intact the current military health care system, the housing allowance and much of the Pentagon’s $1.4 billion in direct subsidies to the commissaries. “I’m just really concerned about military families and this doesn’t need to be,” Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., chairman of the personnel subcommittee, said of the proposed Pentagon cuts after the panel vote. “To me the primary focus of the national government is national defense. We will be providing.” The panel’s action marked the first step in the defense budget process on Capitol Hill, with the full Armed Services Committee expected to approve the bill next week. Facing diminished budgets, three defense secretaries and senior officers have maintained that the cost of personnel benefits have become unsustainable and

Fire and Rescue said he was part of a team who found two women and a young boy trapped in the attic of a modular home. Spies said they received the first call of help before midnight Tuesday but they couldn’t find the group until about 8 a.m. Wednesday. By then, the water was 2 feet below the roof. A firefighter

used an ax to punch a hole through the roof and free them. “They were very scared, they were very upset. I would’ve been, too,” Spies said. There were at least 30 rescues in the Mobile area of Alabama. Florida appeared to be the hardest hit. Gov. Rick Scott said officials there received about 300 calls from stranded residents. At the Pensacola airport, 15.55 inches of rain fell on Tuesday before midnight – setting a record for the rainiest single day in the city, according to data since 1880.

By comparison, the airport in drought-stricken Los Angeles has recorded 15.9 inches of rain – since Jan. 1, 2012. Pensacola and nearby Mobile are two of the rainiest cities in the U.S., averaging more than five feet of rain in a year, according to the National Climatic Data Center. The National Weather Service said forecasters issued flash flood warnings as early as Friday, yet many people were still caught unaware. Elizabeth Peaden was at her weekly Bunco game Tuesday night and it wasn’t raining on her way there. On her way home, she drove her van through a flooded intersection and got stuck. “I was scared out of my wits. Water started coming in and I wasn’t sure what to do,” she said. Peaden waded her way to a nearby American Legion post where she and about 20 other stranded travelers spent the night sleeping on tables or the floor. The widespread flooding was the latest wallop from a violent storm system that began in Arkansas and Oklahoma and worked its way South, killing 37 people along the way, including a 67-yearold driver in Florida. Pensacola Police Chief Chip Simmons said two vehicles fell 25 feet when portions of a scenic highway collapsed. The truck driver was fine, but a woman in a car needed help getting out. Neither had serious injuries, Simmons said.

Ukraine forces ‘helpless’ to stifle unrest in east Acting president concedes that police, security unable to resist pro-Russian militants By MARIA DANILOVA and PETER LEONARD The Associated Press HORLIVKA, Ukraine – Ukraine’s acting president conceded Wednesday that his police and security forces were “helpless” to stifle unrest in the country’s east, where pro-Russia gunmen seized more buildings, walking into the police station and mayor’s office in this mining hub without resistance. Insurgents also took control of the customs service building in Donetsk, the region’s main city, and city hall in Alchevsk, an industrial center of about 110,000, adding to the scores of

buildings taken by the separatists over the past month in the east, where a dozen cities are now in the hands of the separatists. Acting President Oleksandr Turchynov has twice proclaimed “anti-terrorist” operations to regain control of the east, but to little effect. In a meeting with officials from other Ukrainian regions, he acknowledged the failure and indicated the government would back off even trying to bring the most restive parts of the east to heel, focusing instead on trying to keep the unrest from spreading to other parts of the nation of 46 million. “I will be frank: Today, secu-

rity forces are unable to quickly take the situation in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions under control,” Turchynov said. “The security bodies ... are unable to carry out their duties of protecting citizens. They are helpless in those matters.” “Moreover, some of those units are either helping or cooperating with terrorist organizations,” he said. Hours after Turchynov spoke, authorities in the capital, Kiev, announced security forces would hold exercises overnight. The maneuvers could be aimed at reassuring Ukrainians that the government was not capitulating. But they are also likely to be seen

as an aggressive move by the eastern insurgents, who claim the government is a nationalist cabal intent on suppressing the east’s large Russian-speaking population. Turchynov’s government, which came to power after Russia-friendly president Viktor Yanukovych was ousted in the wake of monthslong protests, and its supporters in the West have accused Moscow of orchestrating the turmoil in eastern Ukraine, which borders Russia. The United States and the European Union rolled out new economic sanctions against Russia this week, but Moscow has remained unbowed, denying its role in the unrest.

Polls show residents support term limits U.S., Philippines

agree to 10-year defense pact

• CONSTITUTION Continued from page A1 would have three House representatives, slightly increasing its size from 118 to 123. The changes would take effect in 2023, which would start the term-limit clock ticking in 2015. Another change in the amendment would bring Illinois in line with most other states by increasing the number of votes needed to override a gubernatorial veto from three-fifths to two-thirds. The diverse changes likely are a measure aimed at improving the odds that the amendment survives a court challenge because it not only imposes term limits, but also alters how the General Assembly operates. The Illinois Supreme Court threw a 1994 citizen initiative for term limits off the ballot after ruling that simply limiting terms did not comply with a provision in the Constitution restricting what citizens can petition to change to the General Assembly’s “structure and procedures.” The amendment does not impose term limits on the governorship and the five other statewide offices because citizen petitions can only offer amendments to the section of the Constitution dealing with the General Assembly. A Republican-led effort in the Senate to put such an amendment on the ballot died Tuesday in committee. Polls have shown that Illinois residents overwhelmingly favor term limits. An April 7 poll by the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University put support for legislative term limits at almost 80 percent, versus 17 percent opposed and 3.4 percent unsure. The numbers are even stronger for limiting the amount of time that lawmakers can serve in leadership roles, such as House speaker and Senate president. Fifteen states impose term

Six states had term limits at one time that have since been repealed – two by the legislatures themselves and four by their respective state supreme courts. In all four cases, the courts objected to the method by which the limits were imposed, not on the merits of the law itself. The Yes For Independent Maps amendment seeks to reform a redistricting process long derided by critics who allege the system in Illinois allows lawmakers to choose their voters. The proposed 1,500-word amendment puts the job of redrawing House and Senate boundaries after each decennial U.S. Census in the hands of an 11-member commission appointed by a three-member panel selected from random applications submitted to the state auditor general. The commission, which must deliberate in public, would

be forbidden from drawing boundaries that split local units of government, ethnic or linguistic groups, or discriminate against political parties. A majority vote by the commission to approve the maps must include at least two affirmative votes each from Democratic, Republican and independent members. The amendment only applies to General Assembly districts – state lawmakers would still have the power to draw the boundaries of the state’s Congressional districts. Thirteen states put the job of redistricting in the hands of independent commissions, and two other states have a commission that serves in an advisory role to state lawmakers. In Iowa, long held up as an example of proper redistricting, an independent government agency is in charge of drawing the maps, and is forbidden from taking lawmakers’ home addresses into account. Illinois is one of five states

that puts redistricting in the hands of a commission if lawmakers fail to meet the filing deadline. Voters could end up weighing in on four proposed constitutional amendments in November if both citizen initiatives pass legal muster. State lawmakers earlier this month put two amendments – protecting voting rights and strengthening the 1992 victims’ rights amendment – on the ballot. An effort by lawmakers to put an amendment on the ballot replacing the flat income tax with a “progressive” one based on income fizzled because it did not have the three-fifths majority in the House needed to pass. The Constitutional limit to no more than three proposed amendments on the ballot applies only to those proposed by the General Assembly. Amendments pass if they are approved by either threefifths of those voting on it, or the majority of those voting in that election.

Ponzio: Many colleagues work at two to three colleges • ADJUNCT Continued from page A1 “They can get adjuncts for about 25 percent to 33 percent of what it costs for a full-time instructor and not need to pay for benefits,” said Peter Ponzio, president of the adjunct faculty association. “We sign a contract semester to semester, so it gives the college a lot of flexibility. When you can get three or four people for the price of one, it makes a lot of business sense.” Adjunct professors at McHenry County College on average make between $12,000 to $18,000 per year. For an adjunct professor with a master’s degree, working at the college for more than 13 semesters and teaching the maximum load of 24 contact hours per year, the salary is capped at $19,560. The same adjunct professor with a doctoral degree has a salary cap of $20,424. Wage limits mean long days for some instructors. Bob Reass, a math instructor

“They can get adjuncts for about 25 percent to 33 percent of what it costs for a full-time instructor and not need to pay for benefits. We sign a contract semester to semester, so it gives the college a lot of flexibility. When you can get three or four people for the price of one, it makes a lot of business sense.” Peter Ponzio, president of the adjunct faculty association

at the college for 14 years, also serves as head of math tutoring. On Mondays and Wednesdays, his days go from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. And while tenured faculty generally do more research and publications, Reass said the difference in quality of instruction between adjuncts and tenured faculty is far less than the difference in salary. “From a student perspective, I would doubt most could tell the difference,” Reass said. “There is just not that much of a gap. When fulltime faculty get tenure, their motivation might actually wane some in certain cases.

Adjuncts never know if they are going to have a job next semester. They have to stay motivated.” Part of the problem for adjunct faculty stems from a shift in the educational system across community colleges and universities, Ponzio said. In 1970, adjunct faculty made up roughly 20 percent of the teaching force at colleges and were mostly retired professors or professionals who wanted to teach for a new experience. Today, adjuncts make up half of all instructors at colleges and universities across the country and are

mostly younger professionals attempting to stand out and earn an elusive full-time professor position. Ponzio, who fits the mold of the 1970-adjunct having come from a chief financial officer position at a Fortune 400 company to pursue a passion in teaching, said he is in a uncommon position as most of his colleagues work at two or three community colleges to make ends meet. The constant traveling from school to school is a double-edged sword for adjuncts who want to gain experience and credentials for a tenured position but cannot invest the time in one single institution necessary to ingratiate themselves in the school’s community. “There are going to be more and more adjuncts because it makes business sense. I understand it, I really do, I just don’t know if it is a good trend,” Ponzio said. “I think the answer will come when we as a country evaluate where we want to go with our educational system.”

MANILA, Philippines – A new defense pact that will allow thousands of U.S. troops to be temporarily based in Philippines for the first time in more than 20 years signals closer cooperation in the allies’ hot-and-cold relationship that has been shaped over the decades by war, terrorism and now, jitters over China’s rise. The 10-year agreement, signed Monday as President Barack Obama arrived in Manila, is considered the centerpiece of his four-nation Asian trip, which he used to reassure allies like Japan and the Philippines of American military backing as they wrangle with China in increasingly tense territorial disputes. Obama said the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement showed that Manila and Washington have emerged from a rough period in their alliance. “We’re here in the Philippines signing a defense agreement,” Obama said at a news conference with President Benigno Aquino III at

Manila’s presidential palace. “Ten years ago, 15 years ago, there was enormous tensions around our defense relationship with the Philippines.” The pact will allow thousands of rotating batches of U.S. forces to gain temporary access to at least 10 Philippine military camps, paving the way for the largest deployment of American forces since U.S. bases in the country were closed in 1992. It will also allow the United States to station fighter jets, ships and surveillance equipment in the Philippines on a limited basis. Obama said the deal was not meant to counter China but to promote peace and stability in Asia amid a much-touted “pivot” by Washington to the Pacific. But China’s increasing assertiveness in the region is clearly a factor and before he left Obama said the U.S. would honor its commitment to defend Manila under a 1951 Mutual Defense Treaty. “Let me be absolutely clear,” he told U.S. and Philippine troops and veterans at a sweltering army gymnasium. “Our commitment to defend the Philippines is ironclad.”

Construction zone safety Spring might be eluding us, but one season we won’t escape is construction season. Various road construction projects have restarted or will be starting soon in and around McHenry County. Among the biggest projects are the western bypass around Algonquin, continued work on Interstate 90 and the resurfacing of stretches of Routes 31 and 120 in McHenry. Delays reFor the record sulting from construction can Slow down. Speed limits are be maddening, considerably slower in work especially during zones, and fines for speeding your morning increase in work zones. commute to work. No matter how late those delays might make you, remaining calm and driving safely is the best thing you can do. Here are some other safety tips for driving through road construction zones, courtesy of the Illinois Department of Transportation: • Slow down. Speed limits are considerably slower in work zones, and fines for speeding increase in work zones. • Pay attention. Traffic patterns in work zones can change frequently. Keep an eye out for lane closures and pattern changes. • Follow the signs. Flaggers, signs and arrow boards are there to guide you safely and efficiently through work zones. Merge early when asked to merge. Don’t wait until the last minute. • Don’t follow too closely. Rear-end collisions are one of the most common crashes in work zones. Be sure to allow 2 to 3 seconds between you and the car in front of you. • Be patient. Work zones often require lane closures, which will result in delays and backups. Be prepared to slow down and stop. Impatience and anger will not get you through a work zone any quicker. • Turn on your headlights. Workers and other motorists need to see your vehicle. Let’s work together to make sure the projects aren’t derailed by any mishaps.

Should schools close for Veterans Day? The issue goes far beyond Streator, but it came up there and makes a perfect test case, so let’s have at it – should school be in session on Veterans Day? At a recent Streator Township High School Board meeting, board members reviewed a calendar for the 2014-2015 school year that had school in session on Veterans Day but listed activities the students would take part in as a way to honor veterans. Board members rejected the calendar on a 5-2 vote and sent it back to the calendar committee. Superintendent Kevin Myers said an updated calendar proposal still could have the students going to school on Veterans Day with an updated and more detailed list of activities or it could have the students off that day. Veterans Day is for honoring all veterans. This is contrast to Memorial Day, which, as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has noted, can be misunderstood. “Many people confuse Memorial Day and Veterans Day,” the VA website reads. “Memorial Day is a day for remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. While those who died are also remembered, Veterans Day is the day set aside to thank and honor ALL those who served honorably in the military – in wartime or peacetime.” There’s another contrast – Memorial Day is fixed on the last Monday of May, and, therefore, virtually guaranteed to be observed as part of a three-day weekend, much like Labor Day in September. Veterans Day, like Independence Day, is tied to a specific date, and, therefore, moves throughout the week from year to year. Students enrolled in summer school generally can expect to have no classes July 4, but, of course, that’s not the whole student body. Nov. 11 is a different beast. The month already is chopped up with Thanksgiving a few weeks later, and winter holidays and vacations (not to mention all those snow days) will only further slice and dice the academic calendar until spring break concludes. So it makes sense to keep kids in school. After all, can there be any guarantee students would spend a day off – it’s a Tuesday this year – thinking about or honoring veterans? (And playing World War II shoot ’em up video games all afternoon doesn’t count.) Better they be in school with a chance to actually learn about the reason for the observance. This may not seem as important an issue as many of the recent ongoing debates about funding and program cuts, but some things are bigger than school, and this certainly is one of them.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Nurses appreciation To the Editor: May 6-12 is National Nurses Week. During this special week, Mercy Health System would like to thank our nearly 900 nursing partners for the very important work they do and the many roles they play. Nurses are healers, advocates, teachers, confidants and friends. They touch lives and provide comfort, peace and confidence. They make a difference every day, not only through the nursing care they provide, but also through the hands they hold and the hugs they give. Mercy’s tagline is “With all our heart. With all our mind.” Mercy nurses are a perfect example of how our partners live this motto every day. They combine the professional practice of nursing with the science of medicine, and pour

everything they have into providing the very best care for their patients. Whether they practice in hospitals, emergency departments, clinics, home health or any of the other many places that nurses work at Mercy, they remain as a constant presence on which our patients and families can count. Together with partners throughout Mercy Health System, our nurses are on a journey to achieve Magnet Recognition – the gold standard of nursing excellence. I am proud to say that in their practice, they achieve this level every day. On behalf of the entire Mercy Health System, we thank you, Mercy nurses, for your life-saving care and life-changing work. We are proud of your passion for excellence, your exemplary professional practice and are truly appreciative of your uncompromising commitment to our patients and commu-

Affirmative action isn’t constitutional issue Reading strongly held views about political morality into the U.S. Constitution is a powerful temptation on both sides of the political divide. That’s one lesson of the heated debate between Supreme Court justices in last week’s split decision to uphold a Michigan ban on affirmative action at state universities. Justice Sonia Sotomayor argued that it’s unconstitutional for a state to make its universities admit students without regard to race. Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas argued that it’s actually racesensitive admissions policies that are unconstitutional. The better approach is the one Justice John Paul Stevens took in 1978 in University of California Regents v. Bakke. When there’s no need to decide what the Constitution says about a policy, the justices shouldn’t take up the question. And there’s already a statute that settles whether universities should be able to take race into account in admissions: the Civil Rights Act of 1964. That law holds that “no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” These words are not tricky

VIEWS Ramesh Ponnuru to interpret. They mean that a university receiving federal funds can’t discriminate against applicants based on their race. They can’t discriminate against blacks or whites or Asians or any other racial group. Which means, as a necessary implication, that they can’t discriminate in favor of any racial group either. Justice Lewis Powell wrote the controlling opinion in Bakke, and he came up with an ingenious way of ignoring the Civil Rights Act. That law, he reasoned, was an attempt to enforce the clause of the 14th Amendment that requires states to offer equal protection of the law to everyone. If the court decided that racial preferences for disadvantaged minorities are compatible with equal protection, then, they would have to be compatible with the statute, too. Stevens’ response was that even if the Constitution did not itself prohibit some forms of racial discrimination, it allowed Congress to do so. No justice has ever given an adequate answer to his argument – not even Stevens himself, who switched sides on the issue during his time on the court without ever

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

explaining himself. The court has just kept pretending that the statute doesn’t say what it says. Resurrecting Stevens’ original approach would let the issue of racial preferences in college admissions be settled democratically. We could go with the no-racial-preferences policy of the Civil Rights Act. Or, if we reached a political consensus in favor of allowing universities some leeway to discriminate, Congress could amend the act, and the president could sign the revision. Instead of going the statutory route, though, the justices have for decades tried to find the right policy toward racial preferences in the Constitution. Are they categorically forbidden? All right if they’re moderate? Mandatory? None of these attempts has been very convincing. Sotomayor argues that by passing a ban on racial preferences in a state referendum, Michigan made it harder for racial minorities to get their way – and that this is constitutionally suspect. Among the many problems with this analysis is that the referendum clearly served the interests of one racial minority: Asian Americans, whom collegiate affirmative action discriminates against. The Constitution can’t plausibly be held to put a thumb on the scales for some minorities over others. The idea that the Constitution mandates colorblindness

in government institutions, including government funded universities, is attractive. But the constitutional text doesn’t clearly command the courts to strike down race-conscious policies. Nor is there much historical evidence suggesting that the 14th Amendment was originally understood that way. The conservative justices who insist on colorblindness don’t even try to make such a historical argument, which ought to bother them as originalists. My own view on the policy question aligns with the court’s conservatives. Race-conscious admissions policies treat some applicants unfairly, generate ill will and reduce the likelihood that some students will succeed. Universities that follow these policies also seem incapable of telling the truth about what they’re doing. But it’s a policy question, not a constitutional one. The Constitution doesn’t tell us how the University of Michigan or the state’s voters should decide the issue. And we should all quit pretending otherwise. • Bloomberg View columnist Ramesh Ponnuru is a senior editor for National Review, where he has covered national politics for 18 years, a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and a resident fellow at the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics.

CHARGES FILED IN OFF-CAMPUS FIGHT CRYSTAL LAKE – An off-campus fight between two Prairie Ridge High School freshmen that was caught on video has resulted in battery charges for one of the juveniles involved. McHenry County Undersheriff Andrew Zinke said the fight occurred Monday afternoon and apparently started over a girl. No major injuries were suffered in the altercation. The mother of the juvenile who suffered the strikes to the face and midsection said the incident occurred outside the other teen’s house, where that teen’s younger brother is believed to have filmed the fight. She said the footage circulated among some students at the high school. Jeff Puma, spokesman for School District 155, said school officials are monitoring the situation but no immediate action was planned as it happened off school property and was not school related. Zinke said the case would be handled in juvenile court.

Violence in Afghanistan felt in CL Community remembers CLC grad who was killed at Kabul hospital By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – Recent violence in Afghanistan has reverberated to Crystal Lake, as news this week spread and stirred emotions in the community about the death of a suburban father and son. Gary Gabel, a 1975 graduate of Crystal Lake Central High School, traveled from his home in Arlington Heights to Kabul, Afghanistan, last week to visit his son, John Gabel, who ran a small clinic in the war-torn capital. The two visited a Kabul hospital with a Chicago pediatrician, who shared their interest in the Afghan peo-

the hospital grounds. Gary and John Gabel, along with Dr. Jerry Umanos, were

killed, while John Gabel’s wife – also an American – was wounded. On Wednesday, a brother-in-law to the Gabel family said family members were not ready to comment on the incident. Calls earlier in the week to Gary Gabel’s brother, an assistant principal at Hannah Beardsley Middle School, and to Gary Gabel’s sister, who lives in McHenry County, were unanswered. “They’ve asked for their space,” said District 47 Superintendent Kathy Hinz, adding Gary Gabel’s brother, Glen Gabel, remains out of the office. “Right now, we are supporting him and his family with whatever they need.”

As the Gabel family mourns the loss of their loved ones, former classmates of Gary Gabel remembered him as a friendly, kind and gentle man. John Greener, who kept in touch with Gary Gabel on and off in the years since graduating from Crystal Lake Central, recalled how Gabel sat two rows behind him in band during their years at North Junior High, now known as Richard Bernotas Middle School. He said Gabel was an overall good person into adulthood. Other classmates from the class of 1975 remembered Gabel as being a genuine

Students listen to former Olympian Debbi Sullivan give a presentation about exercise and goal-setting Wednesday at South Elementary in Crystal Lake. Sullivan’s talk also reflected the students’ recent Go for the Gold reading initiative. The students are offered incentives for the completion of reading programs and then awarded prize lanyards that look like medals.

Former athlete encourages students at South Elementary to work toward goals By JIM DALLKE jdallke@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – When moving from classroom to classroom, students at Crystal Lake South Elementary School are always told to walk, don’t run. For Debbi Sullivan, that advice took her all the way to the Olympics. On Wednesday, the students at South Elementa-

ry gathered to hear from Sullivan, who appeared for the United States in three summer Olympic games as a race walker. Sullivan talked about her career as an Olympic athlete and how to achieve goals. “When I was your age I wanted to be on the Olympic team,” Sullivan said to the students. “That was my dream. Whether you have a dream at this stage, or may-

be not yet at all, you have to have a dream to achieve anything. That’s your goal in life.” Sullivan qualified for the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and the 2000 Olympics in Australia. Her best finish came in 1996 when she placed 20th. Each race has roughly 50 competitors.

Prevent, be aware of bullying The one big thing in life you should never ever do is bully. It’s very hurtful, and you should always treat others the way you want to be treated. This is one of the things we learned last week in Girls on the Run. There is not only one type of bullying but three, including verbal, physical and emotional. An example of verbal bullying is calling people names, teasing and making others feel bad about themselves. Next is physical bullying, which is hurting people by hitting, kicking, biting, pinching, etc. Last but not least, we have emotional bullying. Emotional bullying is spreading rumors, gossiping and cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is spreading rumors and gossiping about someone online. This can hurt just as

GIRLS ON THE RUN Anna Calhan much as any other kind of bullying. In Girls on the Run, we learned how all bullying can hurt people around us very much. If this is happening around, you should stand up for yourself or others you see being bullied. This can help make a difference, keeping your school and neighborhood bully free. For example, my school has signs that say “bully free” zone. Last week, we also learned about choosing our friends and why it is important to be able to have that choice. Choosing your friends is important because you don’t want a friend that always has his or her neg-

ative cord plugged in. That will only bring you down in the dumps and make you feel bad about yourself. You want to choose a friend that brings out the best in you. Then you’ll be out of the dumps and seeing the sun shine. We talked about forced popularity and real popularity. Forced popularity is when a person forces you to be their friend with his or her actions and says mean things to get friends. This is also known as a “bully.” Real popularity is when people want to be friends with you because you’re nice, funny, encouraging, etc. These are the friends that you want to choose and surround yourself with. If you ever see someone being bullied or if you are being bullied, I challenge you to stand up and stop the

bullying and to remind them that it’s not right to bully. Remember to make sure you always choose friends that have their positive, “sparkly” cord plugged in so they bring out the best in you.

Olympian urges students to believe in themselves • OLYMPIAN Continued from page B1 Sullivan held the world record for fastest 1,500-meter race with a time of 5:54.41 in 1992, which has since been broken. Olympic race walking is different from other track events because it requires athletes to always maintain contact with the ground and to always land with a straight leg, a requirement that often eliminates athletes during the competition. Although she never medaled in any Olympic race, Sullivan told the stu-

“My coach would always say, ‘I would rather have somebody that doesn’t know how to do it but has a really good attitude. I’d rather coach that kind of person than someone who is so talented but has a [bad attitude].’ ” Debbi Sullivan Olympic race walker dents how important it was that she finished each race and always believed in herself. “My coach would always say, ‘I would rather have somebody that doesn’t know how to do it but has a real-

ly good attitude. I’d rather coach that kind of person than someone who is so talented but has a [bad attitude],’ ” she said. Sullivan’s talk corresponded with the students’ Go for the Gold reading initiative,

which began in December. They were offered weekly incentives for increased reading and provided lanyards that look like medals. “We want our kids to be motivated readers,” South Principal Lisa Gott said, adding that Sullivan’s appearance was the perfect end to the months-long initiative. “She touched on not only dreams and discipline, but she also talked about having character and persevering,” Gott said. “Those are all the things we work on in school. … She really wrapped a lot of things up very nicely in a wonderful gift to our students.”

Americans was not clear, but recently there have been a number of so-called insider

attacks – incidents in which Afghan security forces fire on their comrades or foreign trainers or civilians. Violence increased in Afghanistan ahead of the NATO withdrawal and also in the weeks leading up to the country’s April 5 election. Whether John Gabel’s young daughter, Laila, and

mother, Betty, were along for the visit to the Cure International Hospital in Kabul remains unclear. Umanos, who trained young doctors and cared for pediatric patients at the hospital, had invited the family as his guests.

McHENRY COUNTY: ONLINE AUCTION NOW OPEN

LAKEWOOD: HOWELL SERVED 11 YEARS

More Camp Algonquin items to be sold off

Lakewood names new police chief By JEFF ENGELHARDT

By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – Bee hives, barbecue grills and canoes are being auctioned off as the McHenry County Conservation District continues to clear out the former Camp Algonquin site. An online auction is now open for bidding at bit.ly/1fpMYXJ and will close at 9:30 a.m. May 12 The auction also includes some surplus items belonging to the conservation district, including a 1993 Chevy 1500 W/T Cheyenne and a

1953 Ford Jubilee model tractor. Many of the items – cabinets, fishing poles, golf carts and parks, goalposts and yard tools – are from the 22 buildings set for demolition at the century-old campsite. The conservation dis trict’s board of trustees sent a proposed master plan for the 279-acre Fox Bluff Conservation Area, which includes the campsite, back to staff in September. The plan called for the demolition of all the camp’s buildings except the recreation hall.

Board members asked staff to take a second look at an additional three buildings: a century-old dairy barn, a small counselors cabin built in the 1950s and one of the dormitories built by the Tribune Company, one of the camp’s main benefactors. An Illinois preservation group added Camp Algonquin to its list of most endangered historical places in the state earlier this year. In the meantime, the board gave staff the OK to stop maintaining and heating the other buildings. Pickup and removal of all

auction items is set for 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. May 16 and May 17. Buyers are responsible for all the labor, tools and equipment needed to remove the items. The auction is being handled by Obenauf Auction Service, a company the district has a standing contract with. This is the 11th auction the district has held, according to district spokeswoman Wendy Kummerer. The district auctions surplus items to recoup some money.

The best time to book the cheapest flights Travel website says to buy airfare 54 days out The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – Booking a flight is often confusing, annoying and frustrating. Prices fluctuate so frequently that most vacationers can’t tell if they are getting a good deal. We check multiple websites, often several times a day. Then, a few days after we finally do book that nonrefundable ticket, there’s a sale, confirming that we overpaid. So when is the best time to book a flight? One travel site dug through the data and has an answer for us: 54 days in advance. Well, except there are plenty of caveats. Back to that number in a minute, but first a little bit about how the process works. Airlines use sophisticated computer programs to analyze booking trends and constantly change prices to get the most money out of each flight. That’s why two passengers in the same row might have paid vastly different fares, depending on when they booked. Complicating matters is a bevy of fees added to help the airlines offset higher jet fuel prices. That’s why booking at the right time is so much more important today. The average cost of a roundtrip

domestic ticket – including baggage and reservation change fees – grew to $378.62 from $351.48 in the past five years, when adjusted for inflation. That brings us to 54 days. For a study published in February, booking site CheapAir.com looked at millions of trip combinations, searching as far as 320 days in advance to one day before departure and every possible day between. That’s 1.3 billion airfares. The result: 54 days in advance was the best time, on average, to buy domestic tickets. This is not a hard-and-fast rule, however. Airfares to popular vacation destinations tend to go up sooner. So flights to Phoenix, San Diego, Orange County, Calif., as well as Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Pensacola, and Orlando in Florida actually were cheapest 75 days in advance, according to CheapAir’s study. For Las Vegas, it was 81 days, and for airports in Hawaii it was 87 days. Confused yet? That’s why CheapAir tried to simplify things and come up with a more-general rule: The prime booking window is 29 to 104 days before departure. That fits with a report from the Airlines Reporting Corp, which processes ticket transactions for airlines

and more than 9,400 travel agencies, including websites such as Expedia and Orbitz. That 2012 study found that the optimal time to book is about six weeks in advance. Fliers booking then paid about 5.8 percent less than the average domestic fare. Now, here’s some bad news: The formula is completely different for those peak travel periods when everybody wants to fly. So, if you still haven’t booked your flights to Europe for this summer, forget about it. The best time to buy those, according to CheapAir, was a whopping 319 days in advance. But at least you can start thinking now about Thanksgiving and Christmas travel. The cheapest day to book those flights last year was June 4 – roughly five and six months before the respective holidays. Here are some other tips to saving: • Look for connecting flights. Flying nonstop is ideal, but that convenience isn’t free. Adding one stop could save $100 round-trip. Just leave plenty of time to connect. • Be flexible with your dates. Use a flexible date search to find the cheapest days in a month to fly.

McHENRY – Centegra Hospital-McHenry has received the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer Outstanding Achievement Award. The Outstanding Achievement Award is designed to recognize cancer programs that strive for excellence in providing quality care to people with cancer. “We are so proud that Centegra Hospital-McHenry has again been named among the finest providers when it comes to cancer care,” said Rachel Sebastian, vice president and site administrator at Centegra Hospital-McHenry. “Just five Illinois organizations received this award. It reflects the commitment of our associates and physicians to provide exceptional cancer care to the people of greater McHenry County.” A facility receives the Outstanding Achievement Award after an on-site evaluation by a physician surveyor. Centegra Hospital-McHenry demonstrated compliance with standards that represent the full scope of the cancer program. The standards address cancer committee leadership, cancer data management, research, community outreach and quality improvement. Established in 1922 by the American College of Surgeons, the Commission on Cancer is a consortium of professional organizations dedicated to improving survival and quality of life for cancer patients through standard setting, prevention, research, education and the monitoring of comprehensive quality care.

Wal-Mart brings one-stop shopping to car insurance By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO The Associated Press NEW YORK – Wal-Mart is bringing one-stop shopping to another area: auto insurance. The world’s largest retailer has teamed up with AutoInsurance.com to let shoppers quickly find and buy insurance policies online in real time to cut costs. The service is available immediately in eight states – Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas. It will be available nationwide in the next few months. Shoppers can log onto AutoInsurance.com or access the site through Wal-Mart’s website at www.Walmart.com/autoinsurance. AutoInsurance.com, a division of Fort Lee, N.J.-based Tranzutary Insurance Solutions LLC, a licensed property and casualty insurance agency, was created after Wal-Mart realized there was an opportunity for a quicker service where shoppers can buy and save on car insurance that provides the final price – with no bait-and-switch tactics. Wal-Mart said car insurance is among the biggest monthly expenses for customers, and for some, it can outpace health-care costs. In a briefing with the media, Daniel Eckert, senior vice president of services for Wal-Mart U.S., said the Bentonville, Ark.-based discount-

AutoInsurance will earn a commission every time a policy is sold. “Our customers too often have to settle for auto insurance policies that aren’t the best fit and cost more than they want to spend,” Eckert

said. The strategy marks Wal-Mart’s latest flirtation with insurance marketing and also highlights how the retailer is trying to use its size to expand beyond food and other staples into a onestop shopping destination as it seeks to bring in more shoppers to its site and its stores. Wal-Mart plans to promote the insurance shopping service in its stores. Last month, Wal-Mart introduced a new money transfer service that it said will cut fees for its low-income customers by up to 50 percent compared with similar services elsewhere. That service is being rolled out in partnership with Ria Money Transfer, a subsidiary of Euronet Worldwide Inc. Joshua Kazam, founder of AutoInsurance. com and the founder and chairman of Tranzutary, noted that 90 percent of people compare prices online for products and services such as airline tickets, but its survey shows that only one in five comparison-shop for auto insurance because it’s a complicated process.

8IN BRIEF Exelon buying Pepco Holdings for $6.83 billion CHICAGO – Energy provider Exelon is buying Pepco Holdings Inc. for $6.83 billion to create a large electric and gas utility in the Mid-Atlantic region. The deal will combine Exelon Corp.’s electric and gas utilities BGE, ComEd and PECO with Pepco’s Atlantic City Electric, Delmarva Power and its namesake utility. The combined utility businesses will serve approximately 10 million customers and have a rate base of approximately $26 billion. Under terms of the deal, Exelon will pay $27.25 per Pepco share, an 18 percent premium to the company’s $23.10 closing price Tuesday. Chicago’s Exelon will put $100 million into a customer investment fund to be used across the Pepco utilities’ service territories as each state public service commission feels is appropriate for customer benefits, such as rate credits, assistance for lowincome customers and energyefficiency measures.

U.S. economy slowed to 0.1 percent growth rate WASHINGTON – The U.S. economy slowed sharply in the first three months of the year as a harsh winter exacted a toll on business activity. The slowdown, while worse than expected, is likely to be temporary as growth rebounds with warmer weather. Growth slowed to a barely discernible 0.1 percent annual rate in the January-March quarter, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. That was the weakest pace since the end of 2012 and was down from a 2.6 percent rate in the previous quarter. Many economists said the government’s first estimate of growth in the January-March quarter was skewed by weak figures early in the quarter. They noted that several sectors – from retail sales to manufacturing output – rebounded in March. That strength should provide momentum for the rest of the year.

Federal Reserve cuts monthly bond purchases WASHINGTON – The Federal Reserve struck an encouraging note Wednesday: It will further cut its bond purchases because the U.S. job market needs less help. It also said the economy had strengthened after all but stalling during a harsh winter. The Fed also reaffirmed its plan to keep short-term interest rates low to support the economy “for a considerable time” after its bond purchases end, likely late this year. But it again offered no specific timetable for any rate increase. Most economists expect no rate increase before mid-2015 at the earliest. The Fed’s guidance on shortterm rates conforms to goals that Chair Janet Yellen noted in a speech this month. She said the Fed’s rate policies must be flexible enough to meet unexpected economic challenges.

Gov’t report says U.S. lost $11.2B on GM bailout NEW YORK – A new report says taxpayers lost $11.2 billion on the government’s bailout of General Motors. The estimate comes from a quarterly report to Congress by a government watchdog that oversees the bailout, and is up from a previous estimate of $10.5 billion. The Detroit automaker needed the $49.5 billion bailout to survive its bankruptcy restructuring in 2009. The company went public again in November 2010, and the government sold its last shares of GM in December. The report said the Treasury Department wrote off an $826 million administrative claim against General Motors Co. in March.

Helping you see big picture in planning Do you picture yourself owning a new home, starting a business, or retiring comfortably? These are a few of the financial goals that may be important to you, and each comes with a price tag attached. That’s where financial planning comes in. Financial planning is a process that can help you reach your goals by evaluating your whole financial picture, then outlining strategies that are tailored to your individual needs and available resources. Why is financial planning important? A comprehensive financial plan serves as a framework for organizing the pieces of your financial picture. With a financial plan in place, you’ll be better able to focus on your goals and understand what it will take to reach them. One of the main benefits of having a financial plan is that it can help you balance competing financial priorities. A financial plan clearly will

FINANCE Paula Dorion-Gray show you how your financial goals are related – for example, how saving for your children’s college education might impact your ability to save for retirement. Then you can use the information you’ve gleaned to decide how to prioritize your goals, implement specific strategies, and choose suitable products or services. Best of all, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your financial life is on track.

The financial planning process Creating and implementing a comprehensive financial plan generally involves working with financial professionals to: • Develop a clear picture of your

Search many sites for best price • AIRFARES Continued from page B5 • Consider the 24-hour rule. U.S. airlines are required to let you cancel most tickets booked directly though their websites. (There are exceptions for those within a week of travel.) After you book, check the next morning and see whether the price fell. If so, call to cancel and rebook. • After 24 hours, still watch for price declines. Any savings is typically wiped out by fees to change your reservation, ranging from $75 to $200. However, Southwest Airlines doesn’t impose change fees, and Alaska Airlines waives them up to 60 days before a trip. If fares on those carriers drop, you can get a credit for the difference. • Book intra-Europe flights through overseas websites. The flights are often cheaper on the airline’s home country website. Google’s

Chrome browser will translate it for you. If that doesn’t work, try the country specific site of Expedia. • Pick two different airlines. Most airlines now sell one-way flights at reasonable prices. One airline might be cheaper for the outbound flight and another for the return. • Search multiple sites. The cheapest flight doesn’t always show up on every website. Expedia, Orbitz and Travelocity are the biggest online ticket-sellers. Sometimes better deals can be found on Kayak, Hipmunk, AirfareWatchdog, Yapta, FareCompare, CheapOair, Mobissimo and Fly. com. Some airlines, such as Southwest, aren’t included on many sites. Look at airport websites to make sure you aren’t missing a carrier. • Fly, then drive. Some airlines have a virtual monopoly at certain airports, allowing them to charge more. Most search sites can check fares at airports 50, 75 or even 100 miles from your destination.

current financial situation by reviewing your income, assets, and liabilities as well as evaluating your insurance coverage, investment portfolio, tax exposure and estate plan. • Establish and prioritize financial goals and time frames for achieving these goals. • Implement strategies that address your current financial weaknesses and build on your financial strengths. • Choose specific products and services that are tailored to meet your financial objectives • Monitor your plan, making adjustments as your goals, time frames or circumstances change.

Some members of the team The financial planning process can involve a number of professionals, including financial planners, accountants or tax attorneys, estate planning attorneys, insurance professionals and investment professionals. The most important member of the

team, however, is you. Your needs and objectives drive the team, and once you have carefully considered any recommendations, all decisions lie in your hands.

Final thoughts Don’t wait until you’re in the midst of a financial crisis before beginning the planning process. Each plan should be tailored to the needs of the individual. A financial professional is trained to help couples find common ground when they disagree. Financial planning professionals make recommendations, not decisions.

Retailer sells insurance online • INSURANCE Continued from page B5 PetArmor, a generic version of a popular flea and tick preventive treatment, to Wal-Mart customers. Kazam founded Velcera, which created the PetArmor brand and was acquired last year by Perrigo. But recently, Wal-Mart has been working with Kazam in improving the experience related to insurance products. In 2012, Wal-Mart tested a program with Tranzutary to sell prepaid MetLife insurance policies in 217 stores in Georgia and South Carolina. Then last April, it launched a test program in Pennsylvania where customers who purchased policies from AutoInsurance.com reported annual savings on their insurance of $1,168, on average. At the same time, it displayed kiosks in Illinois where shoppers could pick up a saving card

that offered a discount on a new auto insurance policy sold through Esurance. Wal-Mart decided that focusing on a price comparison service was the way to go. It works this way: Customers log onto the site and provide their name, address, date of birth and contact information. They also can have the site retrieve their current auto insurance policy, allowing AutoInsurance. com to automatically fill in the necessary coverage information for an apples-to-apples comparison. The free service offers customers multiple quotes from some of the leading national insurance carriers such as Esurance, Safeco and Progressive within minutes. Customers can choose to either purchase the policy online immediately, speak with a licensed agent at 800-700-7500 or save the information and purchase later.

JOHNSBURG – Johnsburg’s baseball team has relied heavily on Collin Ridout and Kevin Kordik through their high school careers and often received favorable results. The two seniors delivered again Tuesday with most of the offense the Skyhawks required to subdue Hampshire, 3-0, in their Fox Valley Conference Fox Division game at Tigers Field. Ridout doubled and scored twice, while Kordik added Johnsburg’s other two hits to keep the

Skyhawks (9-10 overall, 6-5 FVC Fox) close to division-leading Grayslake Central (12-8, 7-4). That was ample run support for Ridout (5-0), who struck out five and allowed four hits over six innings for the victory. “Collin and Kevin have been hitting the ball and seeing the ball real well lately,” Skyhawks coach Sam Lesniak said. “That’s good to see. They’re our horses and they carried us today. You have to maximize your hits when you don’t have many, we did a good job with that.”

NHL PLAYOFFS ROUNDUP

NBA PLAYOFFS ROUNDUP

Wild advance on night of Game 7s

New dad Parker scores 23 for Spurs

The ASSOCIATED PRESS DENVER – Nino Niederreiter scored his second goal of the game at 5:02 in overtime and Ilya Bryzgalov made a big save filling in for an injured Darcy Kuemper, leading the Minnesota Wild to a 5-4 win over the Colorado Avalanche in Game 7 on Wednesday night. It’s the first playoff series win for the Wild since 2003. Minnesota trailed, 4-3, before Jared Spurgeon scored on a nifty play with 2:27 left in regulation. Spurgeon waited for a clear look at the goal, and then shot it over Semyon Varlamov’s shoulder and off the left post. Mikko Koivu and Dany Heatley had the other goals for the Wild, who will face the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks in the second round. Nick Holden, Jamie McGinn, Paul Stastny and Erik Johnson scored for the Avalanche. The Avalanche took a lead on four different occasions, only to have the Wild respond. Niederreiter won it for Minnesota on a 2-on-1 break when the forward sent a shot over Varlamov’s shoulder in the fourth overtime of the series. Bryzgalov took over in net for Kuemper midway through the third. Bryzgalov started the series but was replaced by Kuemper in Game 2. Patrick Roy’s first season on the bench for the Avalanche ended the same way his Hall of Fame goaltending career did –

with a loss to the Wild in Game 7. Roy surrendered the winning overtime goal in 2003. Kings 5, Sharks 1: At San Jose, Calif., Anze Kopitar scored the tiebreaking goal late in the second period and Jonathan Quick made 39 saves to cap Los Angeles’ historic comeback from three games down with a victory over San Jose in Game 7 of their firstround series. Drew Doughty, Tyler Toffoli, Dustin Brown and Tanner Pearson also scored for the Kings, who became the fourth NHL team to win a best-of-seven series after losing the first three games. The Kings joined Toronto (1942), the New York Islanders (1975) and Philadelphia (2010) as the only teams to complete that comeback and now will get another California showdown in the second-round with the first Freeway Playoff against the Anaheim Ducks. Rangers 2, Flyers 1: At New York, Daniel Carcillo and Benoit Pouliot scored second-period goals, and New York advanced to the second round with a victory over Philadelphia in Game 7. The Rangers shook off a 5-2 thrashing in Philadelphia on Tuesday and knocked out the Flyers about 24 hours later, improving to 6-0 in Game 7s at Madison Square Garden. New York will face another Metropolitan Division rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins, in the next round starting on Friday.

Time off should help some Blackhawks heal • MUSICK Continued from page C1 For that matter, a half-dozen playoff teams waded into the choppy waters of Game 7 on Wednesday. The Avalanche hosted the Wild, the New York Rangers hosted the Philadelphia Flyers, and the San Jose Sharks welcomed the Los Angeles Kings. It marked the fifth time in NHL history and the first time since 2003 that three or more Game 7s were played on the same day. Meanwhile, the Hawks absorbed zero hits and accumulated zero bruises. After a workmanlike, hour-long practice, players headed home to watch games on TV. “I’ll be watching,” Hawks forward Bryan Bickell said, “on the couch with my two dogs.” Woof. Rather than fret about their next opponent, the Hawks focused on their own personnel during practice. Quenneville led the Hawks through power-play drills, penalty-killing drills, odd-man rushes and a variety of other quick-hit exercises. The Hawks’ top line of Bickell, Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa tested goaltender Corey Crawford as much as possible. Crawford used his leg pads to stop a low shot by Bickell and he used his glove to swat away a wrist shot by Hossa, but then Toews got the better of him with a perfectly placed wrist shot that nearly popped the Gatorade bottle off of the top of the net. Could fast-paced drills help the Hawks sustain their good

vibes from a first-round win? Or would momentum in the next series belong to the team that won a Game 7? “I don’t think you lose it,” Quenneville said. “I think both teams have it. In a new series, you want to make sure you try to keep it and sustain it. … “For sure, the team that wins [Game 7], they’re going to be sky high and excited about starting the series. But it wasn’t like we’ve been off that long. We know how hard and challenging it was. I think that last series should give us some excitement in our game, as well.” Bickell (and, presumably, his two dogs) agreed with the coach. “There’s definitely momentum,” Bickell said. “And confidence, too, for what we did being down 2-0 and swinging back and playing good hockey every game.” Momentum is nice and confidence is dandy, but the Hawks have two Stanley Cup championships since 2010 because of their players. Now, they’re all fully rested, including recently injured players such as Toews and Patrick Kane. Heck, Crawford looked so relaxed that he might as well have been wearing sandals. “It’s nice to rest,” Crawford said. “The most important thing is the mental break.” In other words, the exact opposite of playing in a stressful Game 7. • Northwest Herald sports columnist Tom Musick can be reached at tmusick@shawmedia.com and on Twitter @ tcmusick.

The Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony passes the ball past the Bulls’ D.J. Augustin on April 13 in New York. The Bulls are expected to pursue Anthony in the offseason.

Only fair to Thibs: Bulls need Anthony The Bulls have followed Tom Thibodeau’s lead for the past four seasons, and they have gone places. Nice places. Distant places. Just not nice and distant enough. It’s time to follow someone else’s lead – Carmelo Anthony’s – and see how far it takes them. The Bulls need offense, which ranks a distant third on Thibodeau’s priority list behind defense, rebounding, hustle, film study, eating, scrapbooking, antiquing, his next tattoo ... OK, make that a distant 30th. He needs to change. He needs to be given the weapons to change. That’s where Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf, vice president John Paxson and general manager Gar Forman come in. Where common sense comes in. Where Anthony, hopefully, comes in. You probably noticed how much more talent the Wizards had than your heroes did in a first-round series that saw the higher-seeded Bulls sink like an anvil in Lake Michigan. That’s not how it’s supposed to work in Thibodeau’s world, a world in which effort, grit and stick-togetherness are the only things necessary to win basketball games. One problem: That’s not the real world. The Bulls’ regular-season success, although good for the city’s self-esteem, doesn’t mean a whole lot. Thibs’ players too often look like deflated balloons by the time the playoffs roll around. That partially would explain his .657 regular-season winning percentage and his .436 postseason winning percentage. But we also have learned the hard way that talent rules in the NBA. If there was any other lesson in the Wizards’ 4-1 dispatching of the Bulls, I missed it. I resisted the idea of Anthony coming to the Bulls, thinking he was a me-first, defensethird-or-fourth kind of player. That opinion hasn’t changed. But the ugly sight of the Bulls trying to score points has opened my eyes. Offense matters. Forgive us, Thibs, our impure thoughts. Put Carmelo and Derrick Rose together and figure out a way to get them all the shots they need. That should be a good problem for Thibodeau to have. It should be fun for him, though I can’t recall his ever being in the vicinity of fun. We laugh about him and offense, the oddest of couples, but I think he’s capable of teaching the part of the game in which his team possesses that orange, spherical thing. Who knows? He might find that he likes it. There are, of course, two huge questions

VIEWS Rick Morrissey surrounding the scenario I just laid out: Can the Bulls get Anthony to turn down the big contract the Knicks likely will be offering? Can Rose stay healthy? If, as expected, Carmelo opts out of his contract and becomes a free agent, the Knicks can give him the most money: $129.1 million over five years. The best other teams could offer him would be $95.8 million over four years. But things got interesting last week when new Knicks president Phil Jackson publicly reminded everyone that Anthony, a seven-time All-Star, previously had said he’d take less money to help the franchise build a contender. “That’s, I think, a precedent that’s been set,” Jackson said. “Because the way things have been structured now financially for teams is that it’s really hard to have one or two top stars or max players. To put together a team with enough talent, you’ve got to have people making sacrifices financially. “So we hope that Carmelo is true to his word, we understand what it’s going to take and we will present that to him at that time.” The Bulls face some of the same salary-cap issues, but clearly something needs to change. The route they have gone with Thibodeau, while noble, isn’t good enough. Heart and hustle are great, but the Bulls need more talent, even if that means unloading Taj Gibson and other players/draft picks to make room for Anthony. A report Wednesday indicated the Bulls hope to trade Carlos Boozer instead of confronting the amnesty issue. Well, of course, they’ll try to trade him. And I’ll try to dunk a basketball. Neither seems remotely possible. The team has to proceed as though Rose’s two knee surgeries are nonissues. Are they? I don’t know. I just know they have to act as though he’ll be the player he was three years ago. That means getting another superstar to play alongside him. That means getting Anthony. Could the Bulls win a championship with Anthony and a healthy Rose? They’d have a chance, which is a lot more than you can say about a team whose season already is done. • Rick Morrissey is a Chicago Sun-Times sports columnist who can be reached at rmorrissey@suntimes.com.

Ridout contributes at plate, too • BASEBALL Continued from page C1 Ridout, a fourth-year starter, doubled to the left-center field fence in the first, moved to third in Kordik’s infield hit and scored on a wild pitch. In the fourth, Ridout led off with a walk, stole second on a pitch in the dirt and scored on Kordik’s single. Kordik, a third-year starter, then stole second and scored on ground outs by Scott Sompel and Mike Pritts. “It was base running that we practice all the time,” Ridout said of his steal. “It’s good to see that come out on the field. I saw [the pitch] shooting down, and I just left.” Hampshire catcher Jayson Fleiser scooped the pitch, but was off-balance and could not catch the speedy Ridout. “It was a tough day hitting, but we did a good job capitalizing on our base running,” Kordik said. “We’ve been working on making sure we

can manufacture runs if it’s hard to hit that day.” Hampshire (7-12, 2-7) was close to scoring in the first inning when R.J. Consigny walked and Michael Merchut singled on a hit-and-run with one out. Consigny advanced to third and Merchut hustled to second when a play was made on Consigny. Consigny was then thrown out at home on a play that started with a wild pitch and involved a wild throw. Johnsburg catcher B.J. Garcia retrieved the ball in time to flip to Ridout covering home and get Consigny. The Whip-Purs only got one more runner past second base. “When Collin [Ridout] gets ahead in the count, he’s tough,” Hampshire coach John Sarna said. “We were trying to get him early. The only way that’s effective is to get him early. Alex [Crinigan] pitched well, but unfortunately we gave them those runs and when you face a tough pitcher, you can’t make those mistakes.”

Crinigan (0-3) allowed only the hits to Ridout and Kordik and struck out three in six innings. Johnsburg is enjoying its chase of Grayslake Central for the FVC Fox title. The Skyhawks travel Thursday to Hampshire. “It’s an awesome feeling,” Kordik said. “Baseball is a lot fun this year. It’s a different feeling knowing you can contend with anyone in the conference if you play your game and play clean baseball, the way we’ve been doing. I think we’re going to play our best baseball in our later games and build up toward a good season.” Lesniak, in his second season as coach, agrees. “We’re in it right now,” he said. “That’s all you can ask for is to have an opportunity to be in it and hopefully come up with a couple of wins when we need to. Anytime you can be in a race, you have to be happy about it. We’re playing good baseball right now.”

SAN ANTONIO – Tony Parker had 23 points hours after the birth of his first child, and San Antonio never trailed in a 109-103 victory over Dallas on Wednesday night, taking a 3-2 lead in the first-round series. Manu Ginobili had 19 points and Tiago Splitter added 17 points and 12 rebounds as San Antonio regained home-court advantage. Tim Duncan added 16 points and 12 rebounds and Kawhi Leonard had 15 points for the Spurs. Vince Carter scored 28 points on 10-for-16 shooting from the field for Dallas. After averaging 16 points in the series’ first four games, Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki scored 26 points on 10-for-20 shooting. Raptors 115, Nets 113: At Toronto, Kyle Lowry scored a career playoff-high 36 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer after Toronto had blown a 26-point lead, and the Raptors took a 3-2 lead in their firstround series. DeMar DeRozan had 23 points, Jonas Valanciunas scored 16 and Greivis Vasquez added 15 for the Raptors, who would advance to face Miami in the second round with a victory in Game 6 on Friday in Brooklyn. Joe Johnson scored 30 points and Mirza Teletovic had 17 for the Nets, who scored 44 points in the fourth quarter but lost their final chance when Andray Blatche fired a pass well over Deron Williams’ head into the backcourt for a turnover.

Rockets 108, Trail Blazers 98: At Houston, Dwight Howard had 22 points and 14 rebounds, and Jeremy Lin came off the bench to score 21 points as Houston avoided elimination.

8SPORTS SHORTS Kishwaukee’s Wiley named MCC women’s hoops coach McHenry County College athletic director Wally Reynolds announced Wednesday the Scots had hired Karen Wiley as their new women’s basketball coach. Wiley joins MCC after coaching at Kishwaukee College for 14 seasons. The Kougars were 149-60 since 2009 under Wiley and were in the top eight of the NJCAA National Tournament the last two seasons. “There are great things ahead for MCC Scots women’s basketball,” Wiley said in an MCC news release. “I will begin immediately to work closely with the high school and AAU programs to develop a quality team and program. We have roster positions for the coming year, and it presents a great opportunity.” Wiley’s 2013 team finished fourth in the NJCAA tournament and was 27-10. This season’s team was 30-7 and was in the NJCAA Elite Eight. “We were very fortunate that Karen Wiley was attracted to our women’s basketball program,” Reynolds said in the release. “Her Region IV experience, team records, awards, student development successes and commitment to academic success made her candidacy stand out.” The Scots were 2-25 last season.

Lakers’ D’Antoni resigns after less than 2 seasons LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni resigned Wednesday after less than two seasons on the job. D’Antoni went 67-87 after taking over the Lakers early in the 2012-13 season. He replaced the fired Mike Brown, who lasted just 71 games after replacing 11-time NBA champion coach Phil Jackson in 2011. – Staff, wire reports

‘Challenge’ lured Manning to Schaumburg 8INSIDE GIRLS SOCCER Player of the Week AVALON SENN-RAEMONT McHenry, sr. Avalon Senn-Raemont helped McHenry go 4-2 the past week, including winning three games in the Mount Prospect Tournament. Senn-Raemont scored five goals in the tournament. On Tuesday, she scored twice, including the game-winning goal with 1:31 remaining to beat Dundee-Crown, 3-2, in Fox Valley Conference Valley Division play. McHenry (104 overall, 2-0 FVC Valley) has won six of its past eight games. “What has impressed me so much about Avalon is her work ethic,” coach Greg Eiserman said. “She has diversified her play so much over the past couple of years, and she has made herself a vital part of our success this season.”

Noteworthy Crystal Lake South soaring: The Gators continued their streak without a loss Tuesday, beating Cary-Grove, 1-0, on a penalty kick by Alex Siavelis. The streak without a loss has grown to 10 straight games (eight wins and two draws). The Gators (10-22, 3-0 FVC Valley) have used teamwork and always keep their spirits high, regardless of how each game plays out. A big key to the Gators’ success has been their back line, led by senior Audrey Collard. “We all have so much confidence in each other,” Collard said. “Regardless how the game is going, we are always trying to up our intensity to another level.” Tough schedule helping Huntley: The Red Raiders have played a difficult schedule, including many opponents in tournaments and out of the area. In Huntley’s past eight matches, only one team has scored, with the Red Raiders (10-4, 1-0 FVC Valley) being on the winning end in six of those. The two losses came to New Trier and St. Charles North, both by 1-0 scores. “Whenever you can play the opponents we have scheduled, it always helps once you get into conference play,” coach Kris Grabner said. “I think because of our past successes in the playoffs and past seasons, it has allowed us to schedule tough competition.” FVC play starting to heat up: With FVC play well underway, the races for the conference’s top spots are starting to get competitive. In the Valley Division, McHenry, Crystal Lake South and Huntley remain unbeaten in division play, while there are no more unbeatens in the Fox Division. Johnsburg holds the top spot with a 3-1 division record over Woodstock (2-1).

This week’s top matches Huntley at Cary-Grove 4:30 p.m. Thursday Huntley will head to CaryGrove in the FVC Valley Division matchup. Huntley has been off for the past week and will face a Trojans team looking to get back on the winning track. C-G enters this match 0-3 in division play, while Huntley beat Prairie Ridge in a shootout in its only division match this season. The Trojans will be tested against a tough Red Raiders back line and goalkeeper Jessica Galason, who has 10 shutouts this season. McHenry at Prairie Ridge 4:30 p.m. Tuesday McHenry will take on a tough Wolves team Tuesday in Crystal Lake. Prairie Ridge has had its ups and downs in FVC Valley play this season; it has won and lost games in a shootout, beat Jacobs handily and lost to Crystal Lake South by three goals. McHenry is riding high after a thrilling victory over Dundee-Crown in its most recent division game. Avalon Senn-Raemont and Alexis Morales will be a handful for Ali Fanning and a gritty Wolves defense. – Chris Casey

The success Huntley experienced in boys basketball over the past eight years made a significant decision both tough and easy for Marty Manning. He didn’t really want to leave, although there were pluses if he jumped for Schaumburg’s head coaching job. “The hardest thing to leave was that we had really great kids,” Manning said. “I know they’re going to win a lot of games. They have a lot of talent in the program, they’re going to be successful. That makes me feel a lot better about leaving.” Manning was officially hired by the District 211 school board at its meeting April 24. He received permission from Schaumburg athletic director Tim Kirby to speak on the matter Wednesday and offered his reasons for leaving

My next challenge is to take over a program like that.” Manning will teach business, computer programming and advanced placement computer science at Scha-

umburg. He played at Hoffman Estates in the MSL and witnessed some high levels of success at Schaumburg in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The Saxons won the 2001 Class AA state championship under former coach Bob Williams. Former Huntley athletic director Bruce Blumer knocked one out of the park when he hired Manning, the Raiders’ former sophomore coach, before the 2006-07 season. With Huntley nearing 3,000 students, the recent success, and a solid feeder program in place, current AD Michelle Jakubowski should have a multitude of candidates for the job. There also will be construction on a new fieldhouse starting in June, planned to be finished by March. “I would hope it’s an attractive job,” Jakubowski said. “We have some really

qualified candidates already. Marty did an amazing job with the program. We want to get someone to continue what Marty did. Those are some big shoes to fill.” Jakubowski posted the position Friday and hopes to have a new coach by the end of May. Jakubowski said the school is fortunate that with its growth there are teaching positions in many subjects for Manning’s potential replacement. Manning’s teams won regionals, along with the Valley Division titles, in three of the past four seasons. • Joe Stevenson is a senior sports writer for the Northwest Herald.

NORTHWEST HERALD Mike Kaska’s remarkable season keeps becoming more amazing every time he takes the mound. On Wednesday in Marengo, Richmond-Burton’s Kaska pitched a two-hit shutout with 15 strikeouts and two walks in the Rockets’ 5-0 Big Northern Conference East Division victory against Marengo. Kaska (5-0), who threw a no-hitter and struck out 17 Harvard batters in a 1-0 win April 17, has allowed six hits in five starts this season, Rockets coach Mike Giese said. Joe Dittmar and Kory Klicker each hit a two-run homer for R-B (11-6 overall, 7-2 BNC East). Koty Kissack and Justin Velasquez each had a double for Marengo (6-7, 3-5).

GIRLS SOCCER Johnsburg 6, Woodstock North 0: At Woodstock, Delaney

WOODSTOCK – The cold and windy conditions gave Harvard starting pitcher Maty Brincks plenty of extra motivation to work quickly and efficiently Wednesday against Woodstock. The Blue Streaks struggled to solve Brincks in the nonconference game at Bates Park. Brincks limited Woodstock to three hits and one run in seven innings. The Hornets’ offense provided just enough run support to give Harvard the edge in a 3-1 win. Makayla Stephens hit the go-ahead two-run single in the fifth to break a 1-1 tie. The teams combined for eight 1-23 half innings, resulting in a quick game that lasted 59 minutes. Brincks said her screwball was especially effective against the Streaks. “I just wanted to get a firstpitch strike and do the best that I can to strike them out or get them to pop up,” Brincks said. “Sometimes [in this weather] my outside pitches don’t work so well because my fingers get so cold and I have to learn to pitch with my sweatshirt on.”

Brincks retired the final 11 batters she faced and didn’t allow a hit in last three innings. She finished with seven strikeouts and one walk. Woodstock starter Rachel Lohmeyer was nearly as dominant. Lohmeyer surrendered four hits and retired eight of the first nine batters she faced. Woodstock (3-14) took a 1-0 lead in the third inning, taking advantage of a one-out walk by Amy Fischbach. With two outs, senior Samantha Baker hit a triple to right field to score Fischbach. The Hornets (7-10) answered in the bottom of the third to tie the score at 1. A lead-off walk by Montana Anderson, who advanced to second on a wild pitch, gave Harvard its first base runner of the game. Lohmeyer retired the next two hitters, however, Katelynn Proffitt drove home Anderson on an RBI single. “They were a little anxious at the start of the game at the plate,” Harvard coach Rick Cartwright said. “We said we had to settle down and do their job. They started to settle in and do their job a lot better.” The Streaks opened the fourth with a single from Shel-

by Vansickle, but they couldn’t advance her against Brincks. That was the final hit and base runner Brincks allowed. Harvard’s defense helped Brincks by playing a flawless game. Even amid the windy conditions, the Hornets didn’t have any issues catching five fly balls for outs. “We had too many strikeouts,” Woodstock assistant coach Jenn Koeser said. “Just be aggressive. Too many fly balls.” In the fifth inning, Harvard broke the tie. The first two hitters reached on a triple by Cheyenne Trebes, and Anderson was hit by a pitch to put runners on the corners. Woodstock threw out Trebes at home on Sam McCloud’s hit back to Lohmeyer to preserve the tie, but Harvard still had runners on first and second with only one out. Stephens hit a hard single to right field to drive in Anderson and McCloud for a 3-1 lead. Woodstock escaped without further damage but couldn’t get anything going offensively in the final two innings. “I was just looking to hit it because I’ve been in a really big slump lately,” Stephens said.

To be away from the diamond for four days and have an errorless performance feels good.” Rachel Kautz was 2 for 3 with a double, and Angela Letto added a double for the Tigers. Massie took the loss despite what South coach Scott Busam described as “her best outing of the season.” Massie pitched seven innings, allowing six hits and no earned runs and

striking out five. “Hailee pitched well enough to win, and we didn’t [win it] for her; it’s frustrating,” Busam said. Massie has been battling a case of pneumonia this season but continues to gain confidence and health. Despite defensive lapses earlier in the game, the Gators (9-10) executed a perfect relay play in the top of the seventh to throw out Maddie Helm at the plate to keep it a one-run game. Kassel was 3 for 3 with a double, and Sam McLean and Eve Perdikaris each added a hit for South.

Winston accused of taking crab legs By BRENT KALLESTAD The Associated Press TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston was issued a civil citation after sheriff’s deputies said he walked out of a supermarket without paying for $32 worth of crab legs and crawfish. The 20-year-old Florida State quarterback said he forgot to pay for the food. The offense was relatively minor but drew attention both because of his stature and because it was his latest brush with the law. Winston had been the subject of a much more serious, monthslong investigation into allegations that he had sexually assaulted a woman in December 2013. A prosecutor declined to charge him, citing a lack of evidence and gaps in the accuser’s story. Leon County Sheriff’s Maj.

Florida State relief pitcher and Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Jameis Winston was indefinitely suspended Wednesday. Michael Wood said Wednesday that Publix employees called deputies, who went to Winston’s apartment about

three hours later. Winston was cooperative and told the deputies he forgot to pay for the food, but he did not contact the store or return there to pay for the items, Wood said. “The facts are not in dispute,” Wood said. “He left without paying.” Winston issued a statement through his lawyer saying he had intended to pay, “but made a terrible mistake for which I’m taking full responsibility. In a moment of youthful ignorance, I walked out of the store without paying for one of my items. “I realize that I am in the public spotlight and my conduct needs to be above reproach.” The 6-foot-4, 235-pound Winston led Florida State to an undefeated season and national football championship. For the season, he passed for more than 4,000 yards and 40

touchdowns, completing nearly 67 percent of his throws. Florida State baseball coach Mike Martin suspended Winston, a relief pitcher, indefinitely until he completes community service. Football coach Jimbo Fisher said in a statement that he supports Martin’s decision. Although Winston was cleared in the sexual assault case, the university is facing a federal investigation into how it handled the woman’s accusations. The investigation lagged for months after Tallahassee Police Department officials said they were told the accuser wanted to drop the case, but the woman’s lawyer denied that. The accuser’s lawyers have said the police department botched the investigation because detectives didn’t quickly identify possible witnesses or obtain surveillance tape from the bar

where the victim said she was first approached by Florida State football players. Winston also has had two other run-ins with police, though he was not charged in either case. In November 2012, police were called to an apartment complex in which 13 windows had been damaged by BB guns. Winston and his roommate at the time said Florida State players were engaged in a series of “battles” with each other, although they denied shooting BB guns themselves. In another incident, police records show Winston came into a Burger King with three men but did not order food, instead asking for a water cup he repeatedly filled with soda over an employee’s objections. The report said Winston never was interviewed about the incident because the restaurant declined to prosecute.

By GORDON WITTENMYER gwittenmyer@suntimes.com CINCINNATI – Time to start the trade rumor mill for the Cubs’ annual sell-off. Wait a minute – that started in spring training. No one outside the Cubs’ clubhouse was under any illusion that the team was going to be world-beaters. Even after a 9-4 victory against the Reds on Wednesday, the history watch is on as they enter May. The Cubs (9-17) have struggled so consistently in so many areas that they could be in the running to beat the franchise record of 103 losses. They’ve yet to win a series in nine tries, and they’re second only to the 1997 Cubs in most losses through April. That team, which lost its first 14 games, actually rallied to win two series before May. “We need to be able to put it together,” said Jeff Samardzija, who’s emblematic of the Cubs’ woeful opening month, going winless in six starts despite a 1.98 ERA. “I think we learned the first month to win big-league ballgames you’ve got to put all phases of the game together. Not just one can show up. You’ve got to pitch, play defense, and you’ve got to hit. And these good teams that we’re playing, they do all three, and they do it every day.” First-year Cubs manager Rick Renteria has managed to keep his positive face on for public consumption, even if the serenity has been betrayed by his two ejections during a month in which only six other managers have been tossed once. “Every day is a class day. Every day is a test,” he said over the weekend in Milwaukee. “Quite frankly, we still have five months left of baseball, and we want to just keep pushing.” Five months. Here’s what the season has included just through the first month: • Back-to-back walk-off losses to open the season. • The first doubleheader in 52 years in which the Cubs were shut out in both games. • A minor-league shortstop (Javy Baez) who got more attention for a blowup with a teammate than anything a player on the big-league roster did all month. • A closer controversy that’s more amusing than controversial because the Cubs have created save chances in only five games. • A Wrigley Field birthday cake controversy that overshadowed a rare series split last week. Notes: Starlin Castro went 3-for4 with two doubles and a walk Wednesday to finish April with a .308 batting average, a team-leading .471 slugging percentage and a team-leading 14 RBI. ... Edwin Jackson gave up four runs and couldn’t get out of the sixth inning, but he finished April with a 2-2 record and 5.24 ERA. He was 0-4 with a 6.27 ERA last April. ... Anthony Rizzo homered and walked four times, raising his on-base percentage 27 points to .407.

The Detroit Tigers’ Austin Jackson scores on a double by Bryan Holaday as White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers waits for the ball during the fourth inning Wednesday at U.S. Cellular Field. The Sox lost, 5-1.

CHICAGO – An eventful April came and went for the White Sox, who closed the curtain on the first month of the season with a 5-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers at U.S. Cellular Field. Since breaking camp in Arizona five weeks ago, the Sox have experienced the highs of leading the league in runs per game and OPS for most of the month – a year after they were one of the worst hitting teams in basebal – and seeing free-agent prize Jose Abreu lead the majors in home runs and RBIs while also being treated to watching the normally slow starting Alexei Ramirez break the franchise record for hits in April. They’ve endured the lows of having right fielder Avisail Garcia, a key piece to general manager Rick Hahn’s offseason makeover, go down with a season-ending injury; finishing the month with three-fifths of the starting rotation either on the disabled list or demoted to the minors; and watching a bullpen that, until the last week or so, couldn’t throw the ball over the plate. Considering they’re going through a stretch of 24 consecutive games against teams that had winning records in 2013, coupled with the aforementioned trouble spots, a 14-15 mark in April is far from terrible. “You’d like it to be better, obviously,” manager Robin Ventura said. “When you’re dealing with injuries and stuff like that, at least you’re still in the mix. Guys offensively had a good month and you just want to keep that up and play better. [But] you want to win more games.”

WHITE SOX

By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN

GB — 5½ 7½ 9 10

White Sox fall to Tigers CHICAGO – Hector Noesi looked strong early for the White Sox. But once he had to face the Detroit Tigers lineup a second time through, he struggled. The Tigers got all the runs they needed in the fourth, when Detroit scored four times against Noesi (0-2) and went on to defeat the Sox, 5-1, on Wednesday. Noesi, making a spot start for the Sox, went 3⅔ innings, allowing four runs and five hits. He breezed through the first three innings, but ran into trouble in the fourth in his first start of the season. The Sox’s bullpen, which has struggled in the first month of the season, allowed one more run in 5⅓ innings. Noesi, already on his third team of the year, entered the day with an 11.74 ERA and was one of five pitchers the Sox used Wednesday. – The Associated Press

Getting Chris Sale, the Cy Young candidate who went to the disabled list two weeks ago with a sore elbow, back at full strength would help. Sox fans hoping for feel-good signs of progress from the ace lefty are have their fingers crossed as he and the team take more time than when Sale had similar, temporary setbacks the past two seasons. Cy Young winner Max Scherzer completed the Tigers’ two-game sweep of the Sox Wednesday, but the encouraging development for Ventura is the recent progress of a bullpen that had been a mess during the first three weeks. After waiver claim Hector

Noesi gave up four runs in his start on a “bullpen day” for a pitching staff plodding through injuries to Sale and Felipe Paulino and Erik Johnson’s sendoff to Triple-A Charlotte for fixing up, four Sox relievers pitched in for 5⅓ innings without allowing an earned run. The bullpen hasn’t allowed an earned run over the past 14⅓ innings and boasts a 1.87 ERA over the last 12 games. On Wednesday, Jake Petricka pitched 2⅓ scoreless innings and Zach Putnam pitched a perfect inning, a night after Ronald Belisario stayed in his good grove. Petricka and Putnam didn’t make the Opening Day roster. Piecing together a bullpen is one tough task for a manager and pitching coach, and there are signs it could get done with assists from a fresh faces like Putnam, whose split-finger pitch has been golden. “They’re fairly new to us, but guys kind of move their way up the chain, sometimes down by how they do an perform,” Ventura said. “Putnam … has worked his way into being able to do that. And that’s part of understanding what guys throw, what their strengths are, and if they’re capable of doing it. “Bullpens are always a tough thing, since they’re pass or fail every time they come in. It’s not like a hitter that can go 0-8 and get a couple hits in the next game, anytime they don’t do well it’s immediate and sometimes the results make you lose a game. You’re seeing Petricka, [Daniel] Webb and Putnam the last week or so really come in and kind of calm things down and throw well.”

KENTUCKY DERBY DRAW

Favorite California Chrome starts from ‘lucky’ No. 5 post By BETH HARRIS The Associated Press

AP photo

Sebastien Bourdais takes a turn during testing Wednesday for the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the new road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

INDYCAR: GRAND PRIX OF INDIANAPOLIS TESTING

Emphatic thumbs up Drivers gush over redesigned road course INDIANAPOLIS – IndyCar drivers were unified Wednesday: The new road course at Indianapolis is a whole lot better than the old one. Heck, they couldn’t even find anything to complain about. After a six-hour test session on the 14-turn, 2.439-mile course, virtually every driver who took laps around Indianapolis Motor Speedway raved about the course, praising everything from the curbs to the turns to the chicanes. “I’m impressed,” defending series champion Scott Dixon said after posting the fastest lap of the day, 126.161 mph. “The track was just so much fun today. It’s a demanding circuit, the cars all seem very close, so I think that’s going to create some fantastic racing. The sec-

tions, especially seven, eight, nine, 10 really keep you on your toes.” Dixon was just one of the guys who applauded the modifications even in chilly, overcast weather. The old course had been routinely panned by racers on two and four wheels for being too slick, having too many different track compositions and a lack of passing areas. A $5 million-plus offseason face lift has changed everything. France’s Simon Pagenaud said fans could see side-by-side racing through the first four turns on race day. There are hard-braking turns everyone acknowledges will test the drivers, and speedway president Doug Boles said there are still some finishing touches that need to be applied. Those who competed on the

old Formula One course, which opened in 2000, contend the modifications have been worth every penny. Just ask Colombia’s Juan Pablo Montoya or Japan’s Takuma Sato. “There are two or three really hard-braking turns, so I think there will be a lot of late-braking carnage that will make fans very happy,” said England’s Martin Plowman, Sato’s teammate. That, too, was by design. Track officials have been seeking ways to improve attendance on at least two of Indy’s three major weekends – the Brickyard and MotoGP. They’re hoping the changes in IndyCar’s maiden Indianapolis road race May 10 will appeal to all fans. Practice for the Grand Prix of Indianapolis begins May 8, with qualifications scheduled the next day.

Rosie Napravnik will be aboard Vicar’s In Trouble trying to become the first female jockey to win the Derby. She was fifth last year with Mylute, the highest finish by a woman in history.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The only time Victor Espinoza won the Kentucky Derby was aboard War Emblem in 2002. They broke from the No. 5 post, the same position he’ll start the 140th edition of the race with early 5-2 favorite California Chrome. “Hopefully, that’s my lucky number,” Espinoza said Wednesday. Eight horses have won from there, most recently Funny Cide in 2003. “I think it’s a perfect spot,” trainer Art Sherman said. “I think we break clean, he’ll get out of a lot of trouble. He’s got a little gas leaving there.” At 77, Sherman could become the oldest trainer to win the Derby, surpassing Charlie Whittingham’s record of 76 when Sunday Silence won in 1989. California Chrome comes into the Derby having won his past four starts by a combined 24¼ lengths. “Just an amazing horse to ride,” Espinoza said. “I let him do his own thing and I think he likes that.” Hopportunity was made the 6-1 second choice in the full field of 20 horses. Hopportunity, who lost to California Chrome in the Santa Anita Derby, drew the No. 11 post for the race Saturday at Churchill Downs. He’s trained by Bob Baffert, a three-time Derby winner with two starters. “Other than California Chrome, who’s proven he’s a really good horse, there’s a lot of horses in there that are pretty close,” Baffert said. “There’s a lot of parity in this field.” His other horse, Chitu, is a 20-1 long shot that drew the No. 13 post. Wicked Strong, named for the victims of last year’s Boston Marathon bombings, is the 8-1 third choice and will break from the 20th post on the far outside. He and the No. 10 horse, Wildcat Red, will be last ones loaded into the starting gate, so they won’t be in there very long. Some trainers don’t like the No. 20 post because their horse is on the far outside and has to quickly make its way over toward the rail to save ground. Calvin Borel will break from the No. 19 post aboard Ride On Curlin. The jockey nicknamed “Bo-rail” for his love of riding along the rail has won three Derbies since 2007, and he’ll have to hustle his horse over quickly to snag his favorite position. California Chrome, Hopportunity and Wicked Strong were the only horses listed at single

Deer numbers: The good old days? Dave Kranz, the owner of Dave’s Bait, Tackle and Taxidermy in Crystal Lake is one of the most serious outdoorsmen I have ever met. Kranz exemplifies what a serious hunter or fisherman is all about. He does things the right way, plays by the rules, doesn’t complain and usually figures out a way to be successful at what he is trying to accomplish. You all are aware, I am sure, that Kranz is one of my main “goto” guys for deer information in northern Illinois. He takes his share of whitetails but is concerned and active regarding the future of the resource. Sometimes what he says isn’t necessarily popular to all hunters, but I know his opinions are intelligent and well thought out and are usually quite correct. Kranz recently took the time to do a little research and send me a letter that was enlightening. In it, he wrote: “Steve, It would do some good if the state or a writer would show the hunting public how few deer were here in the 1960-1970-19801990s. When I show these statistics to hunters, they say they had no idea about the past populations of the deer herd. In 1990, McHenry County’s harvest was 522 deer. This year, considered by most to be a poor year, we finished at 896 deer. That is a 42 percent increase over the 1990 total. “All things in nature have cycles, even if we try to manage them. This hard winter has left the strongest of the herd to pass on the best genetics we have seen in years. I think we will see better numbers of deer in the next few years. When I hear how good the hunting was 40 years ago, which would be 1973, the facts show that we only harvested 84 deer in McHenry County that year. These are just some thoughts from someone with a different frame of reference.” Be honest. Are you as surprised as I was when I first read the facts that Kranz presented? I will wager that you are. Kranz’s facts prove true when looking at almost every northern Illinois county. He forwarded

OUTDOORS Steve Sarley county-by-county numbers for Illinois showing the deer harvest totals annually beginning in 1960. They showed similar trends. Close to zero deer taken in 1960 followed by a steady growing increase every year through a couple of years back, then followed by the minor drop that we are currently experiencing. Heck, the entire state of Illinois only yielded 2,541 whitetail deer in 1960 and 9,405 in 1970. Sure, the numbers aren’t perfectly consistent, there are some annual dips, gains and aberrations. Also, the numbers can be skewed by changes in seasons and rules that are on the books. That said, I will stand with Kranz and say that today’s whitetail deer hunting is better than it was forty years ago, even at the close of a bad season. Does this mean that I believe that you should accept the fact that this past season was not up to expectations without complaint? I did not say that. If the numbers go down again next season, things would still be better than it was 40 years ago, but I believe we’d be in the midst of a bad trend. Can we wait to see what happens next year with the deer herd, or the next, or even the next one after that? I don’t think so and I do not think that the Illinois Department of Natural Resources operates like that. I think that an exceptional amount of thought, research and consideration is being given to the state of our whitetail deer population. We’ll have to see what our deer experts come up with for next season and see how the numbers play out for 2014-15.

NOTES Fishing report: I hope that May will bring the warmer weather that we did not see in April. I have had reports of many fish being seen in the shallow water. I am sure they are trying to get the warmth of

the sun. Crappies and bluegill are being caught on a Cubby Mini-Mite dressed with a wax worm or a small minnow. Use a slip float for the best results. Largemouth bass can be caught on stick baits, chatter baits or Rat-L-Traps. Northern pike also like these baits and will be caught while you are bass fishing. Call 815-455-2040 for an updated report. Muskie tournament: The 19th annual Fox River Valley Chapter of Muskies, Inc.’s Challunge on the Chain tournament is May 17. It is the oldest and largest muskie tourney in Illinois. Find advance registration information online at frvmuskies.com or register on the day of the event from 5 to 6:30 a.m. at Musky Tails (the old Mentone’s) on Channel Lake next to the channel going into Lake Marie. The fishing starts at 7 a.m. and concludes at 4 p.m. Post tournament festivities, including dinner, cash bar, awards presentations and huge raffle will be held at the Antioch VFW located at 75 North Ave. in Antioch. Casting for Cures: Cheri Amore Memorial and Nicole Mendlik are the hosts of Casting for Cures to help fight childhood cancer and blood disorders by raising money while enjoying a fun family event. From noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at Spring Grove Hatchery Park there will be plenty to do for families with children of all ages including: trout fishing; fly fishing lessons; games; crafts; face painting; petting zoo; contests; 50/50 raffle, prizes, silent auction, trackless train rides and a “princess meet and greet.” Money raised at Casting for Cures will be donated to the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer Fund, a nonprofit organization formed in 1976 to support research into the effective treatment and cure of childhood cancer and other related blood disorders.

Couples find common ground New guidelines suggest how on different spiritual paths women can prevent a stroke

Wichita Dear Chelsea: Thank you for your suggestion – it’s one that was echoed by many other readers. I have mentioned the Unitarian Universalist denomination and its website (www.uua. org) before in my column. Readers’ comments were enlightening:

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips Dear Abby: I, too, am in a “mixed marriage.” I’m religious and my husband is an atheist. We agree to disagree on the matter. Religion (or lack of it) is a very personal thing, and however we feel, we owe each other respect for our different views. “Coerced” is great for trying to accommodate her husband, but now they see it didn’t work, he should stop pressuring her. She can refrain from going to services, but should consider attending the church’s social events. This solution worked well for us. My husband and my church friends get along well. Of course, this depends on the nature of the church. Mine happens to be one of the more progressive. It’s worth a try. – Kathryn In Ottawa, Canada Dear Abby: I knew my husband was atheist when we married. Our spiritual journeys are different, and we’re not going to change each other. We agreed I would raise our kids Catholic. I never expect him to be at church with us on Sundays, but for important sacraments (bap-

tism, first Communion, confirmation), he is there with the whole family because he realizes these events are important for his kids and me. He has become friendly with some of my clergy and fellow congregants, who accept him for the wonderful person he is. Maybe in the future “Coerced” could attend an event such as a church spaghetti dinner, something outside of services, and get to know the people her husband spends time with on Sundays. And he could spend a weekend doing a silent hiking retreat with his wife and her friends. Respecting each other’s spiritual path is a first step toward appreciating each other’s differences and growing together. – Blessed

In Oregon Dear Abby: “Coerced” is lucky to have a man who attends church and wants her to go, too. She might consider helping in the nursery. That way, she’s there with him but doesn’t have to listen to the message. Churches are always looking for help so parents can attend the service. – Laura In Connecticut • Write Dear Abby at www.dearabby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Dear Dr. K: Do women need to take special precautions to prevent a stroke? Dear Reader: Yes, they do – and a new set of guidelines published earlier this year helps us understand what those steps should be. The guidelines discuss stroke risk factors that women should consider from adolescence to old age. The first thing that might be surprising about the guidelines is they include stroke prevention advice for young women. Most strokes occur in older people (women and men). They are unusual in middle-aged and young adults, and even more unusual in childhood. But they do occur, and some young adults are at increased risk for a stroke. Take, for example, young women who are thinking about going on the birth control pill. Oral contraceptives boost the risk of stroke, even in younger women. The risk is greater in oral contraceptives with higher doses of estrogen, but these are prescribed less frequently today than in the past. The risk of oral contraceptives causing a stroke starts to increase when women reach age 35. How big is the risk? In women with no other factors that

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff also increase the risk of having a stroke (such as high blood pressure or smoking), taking a low-dose estrogen contraceptive about doubles the risk. However, the risk is still small: About 1 out of 10,000 women on oral contraceptives will have a stroke caused by the pills each year. In women older than age 35 who also smoke, the risk of stroke increases considerably. I advise such women to avoid using estrogen-containing pills, patches or devices. I urge that more strongly when the woman has other risk factors for stroke. Indeed, the new guidelines recommend women have their blood pressure checked before taking oral contraceptives. And they suggest women reduce other risk factors while taking oral contraceptives. The guidelines note about one in 12 women develop pre-eclampsia or other blood pressure problems during pregnancy. Untreated pre-eclampsia can lead to strokes. The guidelines recommend women who have had pre-

eclampsia, or are at risk for developing it, take low-dose aspirin until delivery. Pre-eclampsia disappears after delivery. But women who develop it are more likely to develop high blood pressure later in life, which then puts them at risk for stroke if not properly diagnosed and treated. The guidelines also state women who have migraines with aura have an increased risk of stroke. Women with this condition should stop smoking and consider taking medications to prevent migraines. Atrial fibrillation is a fast and irregular heartbeat. It is also a leading cause of stroke, more so in women than in men. Women with this condition should take a blood-thinning drug to help prevent stroke. The guidelines also recommend women ages 65 to 79 talk with their doctor about taking a daily baby aspirin (81 milligrams) to reduce the risk of stroke. So even though strokes can occur in women of all ages, we now know how to reduce the risks considerably. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at www.askdoctork.com or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

Dear Abby: I’m writing to support “Feeling Coerced in San Diego” (Feb. 14), who is uncomfortable attending church with her husband. I understand her feelings because I, too, am an atheist in a relationship with a religious man. There is another option besides abstaining from church or attending only on major holidays, and that would be for “Coerced” and her husband to try a different church. One religion that embraces atheist church members is Unitarian Universalism. UU congregations often are made up of people from different backgrounds – Christian, Jewish, atheist and more. The focus of the sermons is on living a good life, treating other people and our planet with respect, and following one’s own path to spiritual enlightenment. It’s likely “Coerced” and her husband could both feel at home in such a congregation. – Chelsea In

GWEN STEFANI TO COACH SEASON 7 OF ‘THE VOICE’

THINGS

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

Thursday, May 1, 2014 • Section C • Page 10

LOS ANGELES – NBC officials said Gwen Stefani will be a coach on “The Voice” next season. The network said Tuesday Stefani will join Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and another new coach, Pharrell Williams, on the singing contest’s seventh season. The two newcomers will drop by “The Voice” on May 5. NBC officials said Stefani, the frontwoman for rock band No Doubt and a solo performer, will sing her hit “Hollaback Girl,” while Williams is set to perform his new single, “Come Get It Bae.” Network officials also said coach Christina Aguilera will return for season eight.

Eric Clapton pays tribute to J.J. Cale on new album NEW YORK – Eric Clapton is paying tribute to his late friend and collaborator J.J. Cale with a new album. Tom Petty, Willie Nelson, John Mayer and others lend a hand on “The Breeze: An Appreciation of J.J. Cale,” due out July 29. The album includes 16 Cale songs re-imagined by Clapton and the all-star group of friends. Cale, architect of the Tulsa Sound and a widely influential figure in rock ‘n’ roll history, died last year at 74. Clapton turned Cale’s “After Midnight” and “Cocaine” into major hits and the two recorded and collaborated together. Others on the album include Mark Knopfler, Derek Trucks and Cale’s wife, Christine Lakeland. Clapton said in a statement he wants to bring more attention to Cale: “I’m just the messenger.”

Court appoints attorney for Walker’s daughter LOS ANGELES – A judge appointed an independent attorney for Paul Walker’s daughter Wednesday to help determine who will raise the teenager in the wake of her father’s death last year. Superior Court Commissioner David Cowan refused to dismiss a guardianship case, citing an investigator’s report that detailed issues with Meadow Rain Walker’s mother having custody of the 15-year-old. The report is confidential and Cowan did not elaborate on the issues contained in the report. Paul Walker, the star of the “Fast & Furious” film franchise, died in a car crash in November. His will called for his mother, Cheryl Ann Walker, to serve as guardian of his daughter, but she later asked for her petition to be dismissed. Attorneys said Wednesday that she had reached an agreement with Meadow Walker’s mother, Rebecca Jo Soteros, on who will care for her, but Cowan said he wasn’t comfortable with dismissing the case yet. He said Soteros was not in a position to take custody of her daughter “given where she’s living at this time.” He did not elaborate, but Cheryl Walker’s guardianship petition said Soteros had an alcohol problem. Soteros has hired an attorney to object to Cheryl Walker’s petition, but a formal objection has not been filed. Cowan said he would decide what to do with the case once he reviews a report prepared by Meadow Walker’s court-appointed attorney. He set another hearing in the case for May 28. Cheryl Walker’s attorney Steven Bledsoe said his client had “great love” for her granddaughter, but acknowledged that the teenager has expressed wishes to have someone serve as her caretaker. Her preference was not expressed in court, but her mother’s attorney, Fern Wender, said she was also representing the teenager. Cowan said while he wasn’t making any findings Wednesday, he would need guidance on whether it was appropriate for Wender to represent both Soteros and Meadow Walker.

Note in Cobain’s wallet mocks wedding vows to Love SEATTLE – A handwritten note police discovered in Kurt Cobain’s wallet after his suicide disparages Courtney Love, the late Nirvana frontman’s wife. CBS News reported the note was taken from Cobain’s wallet when police arrived at his home on April 8, 1994, after Cobain fatally shot himself. The note was never made public. CBS obtained it from the Seattle Police via a public information request. The network reports that the undated note, apparently written by Cobain on stationery from San Francisco’s Phoenix Hotel, is written like a mock wedding vow. It references Love as Cobain’s “lawful shredded wife” who would be “siphoning” his money for drugs. Cobain’s body was discovered in Seattle on April 8, 1994. An investigation determined that days earlier Cobain had gone into the greenhouse of his home and taken a massive dose of heroin. He then shot himself with a 20-gauge shotgun. Earlier this year, in advance of the 20th anniversary of Cobain’s suicide, a Seattle detective reviewed the case files, including evidence photos and statements. He found no new information to

change the police conclusion that Cobain took his own life. Cobain, who was 27 when he died, sold millions of albums with Nirvana and helped popularize the Pacific Northwest’s heavy, muddy “grunge” rock.

Miley Cyrus postpones two more concert dates NEW YORK – Miley Cyrus has been forced to postpone two more concert dates, this time in Europe. The 21-year-old pop singer’s May 2 date in Amsterdam and May 4 appearance in Antwerp, Belgium, on her Bangerz tour have been pushed back to June. A Wednesday news release said Cyrus’ symptoms from a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics have returned and doctors will not allow her to travel. Cyrus was forced to postpone her U.S. tour until August after treatment for a sinus infection went awry, but expected to be able to keep her European tour on track. The news release said Cyrus still expects to make her London appearance on May 6 as planned. The Antwerp show has been rescheduled for June 20 and the Amsterdam concert will be held June 22.

British media: Prince Harry, girlfriend break up LONDON – British news media are reporting that Prince Harry and his girlfriend Cressida Bonas have split up. Press Association cited an unidentified source as saying that Harry, 29, and Bonas, 25, had decided to end their two-year relationship. Other news media – including the BBC, the Daily Mail and The Sun – also reported the breakup, giving no sources. Royal officials declined to comment. This year, Harry shifted his military career from flying Apache helicopters to organizing army events as a staff officer, meaning he could see Bonas more often. Speculation about a possible engagement had been rife since Bonas and Harry appeared together at an official charity event in March. Harry is the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and is fourth in line for the throne.

Builder promises $500,000 gift to children’s hospital Charlie Murphy of Crystal Lake was equally optimistic. “This year will be even better than in 2013 or recent prior years,” he said. “This year we will be under contract to build 85 new houses and 60 of those will end in closings with people moving into them.” Remodeling projects in 2014 number 35, he added. With business rolling along at a furious pace, Murphy has earned enough from the new housing and remodeling industries to give back a chunk of profit to charity. This year’s big charity is St. Jude Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. Murphy’s company will build a custom house and donate sales proceeds to the nonprofit hospital founded in 1962 that emphasizes pediatric treatment and the research

Jerry Kuyper The last time this newspaper touched base with Icon Building Group, the company was building a dozen new houses, plus completing a dozen remodeling projects annually. That was in July 2011, when the company was based in Algonquin. Today in the spring of 2014, the picture has expanded. “We are growing like crazy,” sales director Jenny Rice said. “We are doing 40 to 50 new houses a year, and the remodeling business is absolutely booming.” Her boss and company founder New Construction – Plote Homes LLC

of children’s catastrophic diseases, primarily cancer. “The goal is to write a check for $500,000 to St. Jude’s hospital,” Murphy said. “Icon is building for free, meaning donating all of its time to design, build and market the home.” “We will not make any money on this house,” Rice said. “Not a penny goes to Charlie or to Icon.” The custom house is on a 15,000-square-foot cul-de-sac lot in the Gregg’s Landing subdivision of Vernon Hills. Ground was broken this month, and completion is targeted for the fourth quarter. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home will be put on the market for a thousand dollars less than $1.3 million.

Amount of donation to depend on sales price of home • BUILDER Continued from page E1 It also features a three-car garage, two stories with a finished basement, a stone fireplace, hardwood floors, a cedar shake roof and a walkout deck from the kitchen area. There are 5,000 square feet of living space. With a finished basement, that living space expands to 7,000 square feet. The hospital could receive a check larger than $500,000, as 50 percent of the sales total has been promised to St. Jude’s. If the house sells for $1.3 million, St. Jude’s will receive a check for $650,000. The other $650,000 would go for time and materials to the subcontractors, plus the purchase of the $275,000 lot. “We are expecting more than a 50 percent payout to the hospital, as some of the trades [subcontractors] are donating their time, if not materials. In fact, we might get close to $700,000 donated from the trades. All donations from the trades have not been finalized yet,” Rice said. “People can contact me if they would like to donate anything toward the cause,” said Murphy, who can be reached at 815-715-2536. Several years ago, an employee of Icon got Murphy interested in St. Jude’s Research Hospital. Murphy’s friend Jeff Ohm, a north suburban Realtor, became equally interested in the Tennessee facility. The two men contacted an investor they knew with properties to sell. The investor said he had the perfect lot for their charitable instincts. “The guy who owned the lot thought it was worth $300,000, but he sold it to us for $275,000,” Murphy said of the lot in Gregg’s Landing. “That was his $25,000 donation to our cause.” Ohm also is donating his services and will host three weeks of open houses later in the year when the house is completed, Rice said. “I just love kids and for me to help kids at such a young age is a joy,” Murphy said. “And St. Jude does such remarkable work with these children. Also, I want this project to raise awareness as to what St. Jude is all about.” Murphy will be busy building new houses this year as well as overseeing his burgeoning remodeling business. The quantity of projects for Icon is phenomenal compared with others in the new-housing market in Chicago’s northern suburbs. “I own five communities [subdivisions], and I am the featured builder in another,” he said. He attributed the success to persistence, customer focus and company service. “What I have realized in my life is that life is about service and the more I can help people get what they want, the happier, and more joyful life is to me,” Murphy said. “If you look at the real estate market over the last five years, and see what we have accomplished in the worst recession of the past 70 or 80 years, and how we have thrived, you have to believe we are doing something right. The mantra of the company and us is about service. People connect with that. They feel it and get comfortable with us, and that is big reason why we are successful.” Murphy also works hard. “I believe opportunities are created,” he said. “We are aggressive and network our tails off. Even if we get only a sniff of a thing, we will be on the phone with what we hope is a

The custom house in Vernon Hills that Icon Building Group’s Charlie Murphy of Crystal Lake is building for the benefit of St. Jude Research Hospital will have an entertainment area like this. This existing entertainment area was designed for one of Murphy’s completed new houses. BELOW: The foundation is being laid for the $1.3 million house.

future customer. All of us have that mentality.” Murphy, 51, bankrolled the company, which was formed six years ago with a base in Algonquin. Rice, 46, heads up sales, marketing and selections (interiors). The company changed its name from Icon Development Group to Icon Building Group several years ago. “Not everyone understood what ‘development’ meant and changing that word to ‘building’ cleared up the confusion,” Rice said. Besides aggressiveness, Murphy said two other factors played into the company’s success. “We focus on the customer, and the money always has to be secondary,” Murphy said. “We do not want to build just to benefit us. We want the project to benefit everyone involved. That’s the way we work. I want everyone to be comfortable, and this involves finances and time, before we begin.

“Besides aggressiveness and customer focus, we have an advantage in that we are a full-service firm. It is soup to nuts, from exterior and interior design, architecture to the financing. As far as financing, we have banks we work with that are really good.” For the most part, Murphy prefers to build new houses. Opportunities come along, though, to tear down or rebuild older structures, finish basements, add a room here or there, and to buy and remodel an older house. These opportunities are not overlooked. Murphy said Icon’s guarantee is that a contract will be completed on time with zero defect. If the close date is missed as stipulated in the contract, Icon is subject to a penalty and that could cost the company up to $1,000 a day. “When we say zero defect on a house, we mean we have gone through the house with a punch list

and corrected everything on that list before anyone moves in,” Rice explained. “We walk the property the week before closing with the customer and create a punch list of what he or she wants to do and then we do it.” During this walk, the owner is taught the mechanicals in the house and will learn, for example, just how a multiple-zoned heating system works. Twenty-five years ago, Murphy and three partners invented a filtration product for restaurant exhaust systems. “If grease or oil got onto the roof, that would not only be dangerous but could void the roofing contract as well,” he said. His company, which opened for business in 1989, had 22 branch offices across the country. “You can imagine the business as it came from Chile’s, Applebees, Outback Steak House and restaurants like those.”

LAKEMOOR

He and the three partners sold the company in 2000 to Ecolab, a $4 billion environmental company based in St. Paul. He did not reveal the sale price but acknowledged it was at least in eight figures. The money was enough to let him ease up a bit. Murphy consulted and coached youth sports for several years, and then, in 2005, he became intrigued with the real estate market. “A guy I met approached me looking for some money and I became his financial partner.” Murphy struggled with the partnership. “I am somewhat of a control freak,” he said. “I did not want to invest a lot of my money into something and not have full control over its use.” Murphy ended up buying out his partner and becoming owner of an 11-home Villas in Hidden Lake subdivision in Buffalo Grove. By 2008, the real estate bug was firmly embedded in his makeup. He envisioned opening a new-house construction and old-house remodeling business. Rice joined the company in November 2008, and shortly afterward Icon was born. “She’s attractive and funny and she is great with people,” Murphy said. “She also has an artistic side, a design flair about her. She is great when it comes to helping customers with interior design. She helps them find what they want to accomplish.” Born on the East Coast, Murphy moved to Naperville in 1972. In 1992, he took up residence in McHenry County, where he lives in Crystal Lake. Rice lives in Crystal Lake. In the early Icon years, the office was in Algonquin. Since then it has moved to Hawthorn Trails, one of Murphy’s single-family housing communities.

This week, we are looking at strong jump shifts. These show some 13-16 high-card points and either an excellent one-suiter, or a prime twosuiter with responder having length in both his suit and his partner’s suit. Now look at today’s auction. What do you make of the two rebids, North’s two no-trump and South’s three hearts? When South responds two spades, North has such wonderful clubs that he can infer South must have a spade onesuiter, not a black two-suiter. So North might immediately launch into Blackwood. But when he chooses to give his partner space to describe his hand, South’s three hearts announces long spades with a control or two in hearts and not in diamonds (the suit he skipped). He would have rebid three clubs with both black suits. How should South plan the play in six spades after West leads the diamond queen? Declarer can afford one

trump loser, not two. With this suit combination, the best play is to start by cashing the ace. When the jack drops, South continues with the spade queen to drive out the king and claims. Note that if declarer starts with a losing spade inesse, he will have a nasty guess on the second round: Finesse again or cash the ace? Also, if the spade ace is greeted by the two and nine, South crosses to the dummy with a diamond and leads a spade toward his hand. He has no guesswork at all.

FILLING THE SHOES

OF LEGENDS Performers proud to replicate the music of Neil Young, Bob Dylan By JAMI KUNZER jkunzer@shawmedia.com When he was younger, Ben Abney admits he thought tribute bands were kind of sell-outs. Then he met Doug Wolff and heard him perform as Neil Young in his band Broken Arrow. He knew immediately he wanted to be part of it, not just the music, but the production, the show of it all. “It was my No. 1 band, the best playing band, my favorite band,” said the 29-year-old Abney, a Crystal Lake native. Wolff and others who knew Abney, who’d been BROKEN ARROW performing with numer& POSITIVELY 4TH ous bands for years, saw Bob Dylan in him immeSTREET diately. Abney’’s thin and wears his hair like Dylan. WHEN: 8 p.m. May 3 And when he sang, it WHERE: Woodstock Opera was as if he became the House, 121 W. Van Buren St., legendary artist. Woodstock “He looks just like a little Bobby Dylan,” COST & INFO: Essentially two said Wolff, of Crystal bands in one, Broken Arrow & Lake, who calls himself a Positively 4th Street faithfully 52-year-old hippie. “When replicate the music of Neil he’s on stage, I think Young and Bob Dylan. Tickets: I’m playing next to Bob $28. Tickets and information: Dylan.” 815-338-5300 or www.woodPut the two of them together as Neil Young stockoperahouse.com. and Bob Dylan tribute artists, and it just seemed to make sense. Two artists singing the music of the singersongwriters who most inspire them. Basically, two bands in one. “You can call me and Doug whatever, but we were born to do this,” Abney said. “We take people back to their heyday,” Wolff added. “I’m very proud to be part of that.” Wolff, as Young in the band Broken Arrow (named after one of Young’s albums) and Abney, as Dylan in the band Positively 4th Street (named after a Dylan song of the same name) will perform at 8 p.m. May 3 at the Woodstock Opera House, 121 Van Buren St., Woodstock. Tickets cost $28 at 815-338-5300 or www.woodstockoperahouse.com. Complete with costume changes, the show has each performer thoroughly taking on the roles of the musical characters. Abney sports the black leather jacket and dark sunglasses Dylan once wore, and Wolff takes on Young’s appearance with loose flannel over a T-shirt and a Neil Young-type hat. When not replicating their inspirations, the two play in

each other’s bands. Abney plays lead guitar for Broken Arrow, while Wolff plays bass guitar for Positively 4th Street. They’re joined on stage by Katie Bendorf on violin, Kevin Weith on drums and Jared Olson on electric guitar. Having performed together for a few years, all involved hope to bring the show to new levels, and with the help of Abney’s father, Bob Abney, as manager, have targeted theaters as opposed to bar and club settings. “My father is extremely influential in my decision to do this and my life,” Ben Abney said. “I hold God first and then my father second. ... There’s a possibility we might not have survived without him.” Their music, they say, not only appeals to those who grew up with it, but also new generations discovering the work of two artists who rose to stardom in the 1960s and ‘70s and likely will go down in history as the best singersongwriters of all time. Wolff became Young somewhat on accident while rehearsing as the bass guitar player with a band in high school. One of the members of that band – the late Jay Bennett – went on to become a part of the alternative rock band Wilco. The band started playing Young’s “Heart of Gold.” “I don’t know why, but I just stepped up to the microphone because it was one of the only songs I knew the lyrics to,” Wolff said. “I wasn’t a singer back then. All of a sudden everyone stopped. I was like, ‘Oh dude, I’m sorry I’ve got such a horrible voice.” Bennet, at the time, told him, “You sound just like Neil

Young.” Wolff knew of Young’s songs, but not really the artist himself. A friend gave him an entire box of Young cassette tapes. “I really started getting into his music a lot and relating to a lot of the stuff in the lyrics,” he said. In the early ‘80s, Broken Arrow began. The band played until about 2000 before breaking up. Wolff performed in a few other bands for a while until Olson – having heard Wolff perform at The Village Squire in Crystal Lake where he worked – suggested in 2010 that he bring Broken Arrow back together. Since, it’s been all Broken Arrow. Once Abney got on board, it was all Broken Arrow and Positively 4th Street. “I was really behind this 150 percent the whole time,” said Wolff, who continues to perform some solo work and with a smaller band, Little Broken Arrow, which also includes his son Arthur. “It gets me out of bed every day to know that I was blessed with whatever I was blessed with.” The band now performs about two gigs a month and hopes to do more. “My whole life is dedicated to this band and solo work,” said Abney, whose solo work is about 40 percent Dylan and the rest ‘60s classic rock. He also works part-time at Target and teaches guitar lessons to children. “At least for me, I think it’s just a great honor to have the gifts that God gave me to replicate one of the greatest songwriters of our generation, and I believe Doug feels the same way.”

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” AP photo

CHEMISTRY SAVES ‘SPIDEY 2’ By JOCELYN NOVECK The Associated Press Deep into “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” my 11-year-old companion was confused about a certain plot point– justifiably, I’d say – and demanded an immediate and thorough explanation. “Shh, not now. Later!” I hissed. Because, though I didn’t admit it, I really didn’t want to miss an Andrew GarfieldEmma Stone kiss. And who knew when the next one was coming? With great chemistry, you see, comes great kissing. Let’s just say this unequivocally: Whether or not my young Spidey fan would agree, the best thing about the “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” the second installment of director Marc Webb’s series reboot, is that infectious chemistry between Garfield and Stone. In fact, given that this overstuffed, overly long film is a sequel to a sequel, and that it spends a gazillion dollars retelling a story (in 3-D and IMAX) that the world already knows, you could argue that the Garfield-Stone dynamic is the real justification for the whole enterprise. This isn’t just because the two happen to be real-life partners – though it can’t hurt. Garfield is a sensitive actor who brings a quirky blend of intelligence and goofiness to Peter Parker, and a welcome hipster edge to the role that the wide-eyed Tobey Maguire didn’t have in the earlier incarnation of the Marvel character. As for Stone, she’s just so darned charming. And though it’s again a

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” STARRING: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx PLOT: Peter Parker runs the gauntlet as the mysterious company Oscorp sends up a slew of supervillains against him, impacting on his life. RATED: Rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi action/violence RUNNING TIME: 2 hours, 22 minutes stretch to imagine her as a high school student, heck, we’ll take it. (In fact, Stone is 25 and Garfield is 30, so we’re just gonna have to give them a pass on this. At least they get their diplomas this time.) Another winning presence is that of Sally Field, touching as the now-widowed Aunt May. The reliable Field gets one terrifically emotional scene with Peter that may have you reaching for a tissue. As for the plot, though, that may have you reaching for a notepad. There are not one, not two, but three villains (at least!) here, and all sorts of backstories – something for everyone, which means too much. The most important backstory involves Peter’s parents, and what really happened to them once they abandoned him as a tot (hint: it involves a very fastpaced plane ride). Back on terra firma, we start with an even faster-paced urban chase involving Spider-Man, a hammy, Russian-accented Paul Giamatti, and some plutonium, distracting Peter/Spidey from Gwen,

who’s anxiously awaiting Peter’s arrival at their graduation. Peter does arrive, but we quickly learn that the key obstacle to their relationship remains in place: Peter’s fear of putting Gwen in harm’s way. Haunted, Peter just can’t commit. Not surprisingly, Gwen gets very charmingly annoyed, and kinda sorta breaks up with him. But these two can’t stay apart for long. Meanwhile, there are big goings-on at Oscorp, that huge bioengineering corporation headed by Norman Osborn. With Norman on his deathbed, son Harry (Dane DeHaan) Peter’s old buddy, returns from boarding school. The pale, wiry DeHaan is entertainingly creepy as he descends into desperation. Then there’s the unappreciated Oscorp employee Max Dillon (Jamie Foxx). When he falls into a vat of mutant electric eels, he morphs into Electro, a glowing monster who can manipulate electricity and suck the power from a whole city (Foxx is more convincing as the villain than the self-effacing scientist). In this age of multi-tasking, Peter/ Spidey sure has his work cut out for him – taking care of New York, of Gwen, and of the endearingly curious Aunt May, who, in a funny moment, wonders why, when Peter does the laundry, he turns all the clothes red and blue? Where will it all end? Well, at least two more sequels are planned, and any number of future confrontations loom. Which of the villains will re-emerge to challenge Spidey? Shh, not now. Later! We’re thinking about that kiss.

James Norton, as Oliver Ashford, and Gugu MbathaRaw (center), as Dido Elizabeth Belle, appear in a scene from the film “Belle.” AP photo

NEW FACE FOR COSTUME DRAMA By JAKE COYLE The Associated Press There may be no whiter genre than the costume drama. The flowing gowns, the horse-drawn carriages, the codes of aristocratic courtship all evoke an era not exactly known for diversity. That’s why the simple poster of “Belle,” a new film directed by Amma Asante, is so striking. A beautiful, finely outfitted black woman in an 18th-century parlor room stares back with regal poise. The historical incongruity is all the more arresting because, it turns out, it’s real history. “Belle” is the based-on-a-true-story of an 18th-century mixed-race woman, Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu MbathaRaw), brought up in British aristocracy. While such a tale is undoubtedly rich, filled with questions of identity, class and race, “Belle” is unnaturally rendered like a Jane Austen story of dowries and engagements. It’s an awkward, ill-fitting match of social progress and costume drama convention. And those 18th-century conventions of speech and etiquette often are gratingly stilted in “Belle,” stifling the film of any naturalism. Instead, “Belle,” made with fine intentions, has none of the uniqueness of its remarkable subject. “Belle,” written by Misan Sagay, was inspired by a 1779 double portrait of Belle and Lady Elizabeth Murray – one

“Belle” STARRING: Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Matthew Goode, Emily Watson PLOT: An illegitimate mixed-race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral is raised by her aristocratic great-uncle. RATED: Rated PG for thematic elements, some language and brief smoking images RUNNING TIME: 1 hour, 44 minutes biracial, the other white – captured in seeming friendship. Sagay and Asante (who’s made one film before, 2004’s “Way of Life”) were intrigued by the story behind the painting. Little, though, is known of Belle, so the film often feels as though it’s grasping to imagine what her life was like, and to artificially connect her with larger story lines from her time. “Belle” begins with her Royal Navy Admiral father (Matthew Goode, whose presence is missed as soon as he departs, setting sail for the Indies) dropping a young Belle off with his uncle, William Murray, the Earl of Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson) at their palatial country estate in Hampstead. They initially are appalled, but give in to his insistence that the illegitimate Belle has his blood, and should be raised accordingly. The film shifts to Belle and Lady Elizabeth Murray (Sarah Gadon) as young women. They are beginning to see society and possible suitors, though

Belle is largely naive to her lesser status. When guests come for dinner, she isn’t allowed at the table. But Belle still has currency as a bride, thanks to her lineage and her inheritance. As suitors circle each girl (Murray has no such dowry to offer), the movie empathetically comments on the variety of unjust inequalities, whether by skin color or gender, pocket book or standing. Belle is drawn to the idealistic son of a vicar (a low station) named John Davinier (Sam Reid). “Belle” also works in a famous event, the 1781 Zong massacre, in which a British slave ship drowned some 142 slaves in the Caribbean. The traders claimed to not have enough water for the voyage and made an insurance claim on the lost “cargo” that went to the height of Britain’s courts. William Murray, also Lord Chief Justice, oversaw the case, and the increasingly politically aware Belle – in a real stretch – is depicted as centrally influencing its decision. In a film populated by one-dimensional shades of good and evil, Wilkinson is the only actor called on to balance more than one emotion. As usual, he manages the task very well, adding a depth “Belle” otherwise lacks. That isn’t to say that the young British actor Mbatha-Raw doesn’t carry herself well. She is spirited and bright, alternatively gentle and impassioned. But the golden-hued “Belle,” handsomely made with lavish period detail, has none of the charged friction of its poster.
