Weech on Tuesday during the 22nd Judicial Circuit Adult Drug Court commencement ceremony at the McHenry County Courthouse in Woodstock. To date, 16 individuals have successfully completed the program involving comprehensive drug treatment, close supervision and full accountability.

Victory of sobriety Six graduate from county’s Drug Court program WOODSTOCK – The last time Ronnie Bianchi’s name occupied this space, it was after police surrounded his Wonder Lake home as part of an early morning drug raid. Authorities led Bianchi off in handcuffs, and charged him with felony possession of a controlled substance. This time Bianchi’s name makes it on the front page, it’s because he was celebrating a victory over drug addiction. Bianchi, who is not related to the McHenry County state’s

attorney, was one of six men who graduated Tuesday from the county’s Drug Court program. Together, the six, all recovering heroin addicts, marked 2,102 days of sobriety. Had they been typically prosecuted, they were facing 13 years in prison – at a minimum. They were instead recommended for Drug Court as an alternative to traditional prosecution. Participation in the drug court program means drug treatment, frequently checking in with program officials,

Watchdog group opposes Quinn’s proposed budget Organization wants governor to address state’s multibillion-dollar bill backlog The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – A watchdog group said Tuesday it opposes Gov. Pat Quinn’s proposed budget because it would use an income tax hike to give homeowners a property tax refund – new spending the group says should be used instead to significantly pay down Illinois’ multibillion-dollar bill backlog. The report by the Civic Federation comes as legisla-

tors face tough votes in coming weeks on the state’s 2015 spending plan. Quinn’s $38.1 billion proposal would extend the temporary income tax increase lawmakers approved in 2011. That tax hike was set to be rolled back – from 5 percent to 3.75 percent for individuals – in January, leading to a drop in revenue of about $1.6 billion. Quinn, a Chicago Democrat, has said extending the tax hike is necessary to avoid

severe cuts to areas such as education. The Civic Federation, an influential Chicago-based policy analysis organization, has said the tax should be extended for one year then scaled back over the next three years. But the group opposes a new $500-per-homeowner property tax refund that Quinn is proposing to replace the current property tax credit. The refund would cost the

state about $715 million more than the credit, according to the organization’s analysis. They say that money should go toward Illinois’ roughly $5 billion backlog of overdue bills. “The governor’s plan appropriately recognizes that the state’s finances cannot withstand a dramatic reduction in revenues next year,” said Civic Federation President Laurence Msall. “However, new spending initiatives are just

WOODSTOCK – The McHenry County Board is in the process of ratifying a first contract with newly-unionized staff, breaking a streak of negotiations that have required arbitration. Its contract with the 23 nurses at Valley Hi Nursing Home was the first in years that did not reach an impasse that needed to be broken by an arbitrator. State law allows unions with fewer than 35 members to go to arbitration for its first contract – arbitration exists to settle contract disputes with employees who are forbidden by law from striking, such as police officers. The main reason the nurses’ contract went so smoothly is that a lot of the language was hashed out when Valley Hi’s support staff unionized, county Human Resources Director Robert Ivetic said. Both units are represented by Service Employees International Union Local 73. “A lot of what we would consider boilerplate was done already. We didn’t have to go over all of that,” Ivetic said. The County Board’s Human Resources and Finance and Audit committees voted Tuesday to recommend approval of the contract, and the Public Health and Human Services Committee

‘Sexting’ incidents offer teachable moment Two 14-year-old boys at Station Middle School in Barrington recently were charged with sharing sexually explicit photographs and video. The boys, police say, received photographs that they then redistributed to a group of classmates via cellphone text message. In Batavia, a group of Rotolo Middle School students will not be facing criminal charges, despite what officials are calling a “sexting” incident in which the students sent photos of themselves through text messages. Those students were all between 11 and 14 years old, according to published reports. Although troubling, these incidents hardly are surprising. After all, middle school and junior high school students have been doing dumb, ill-advised things for years. It’s a time of transition from being “little kids” to adolescents. All sorts of hormones start to kick in, as does a social awareness of the world. That, in turn, allows peer pressure and the desire to be “normal” to

VIEWS Joan Oliver be so strong that even good kids can be coerced into pushing boundaries. We adults probably remember those times with a wince or a chuckle, mainly because our own foibles never rose to the level of criminal charges. And that’s the scary part about being a kid these days. The opportunities for those stupid acts of pre-adolescence to ruin one’s future are greater now than ever before. The Internet and cellphones and the ability to send messages, photographs and videos to vast numbers of people mean that there’s real danger in an ill-advised “send.” Actions bring consequences, and the consequence of “sexting,” and other social media missteps, can be felt when choosing a college, trying to get a job and maintaining a good reputation. There even have been reports of

suicides, after those who shared an intimate photograph with one person learned that the image had been disseminated to even more people. That’s why parents should take these recent news reports as an opportunity to teach their children about the dangers of “sexting” and misuse of cellphones and social media. That’s one of the suggestions from the National Crime Prevention Council (www.ncpc.org). Here are a few more: • Encourage your child to think before sharing or posting personal information and pictures. • If a child confesses to sending or forwarding explicit pictures, parents should remain calm, be supportive and take action. The child should be told to stop immediately and delete any such files. • If a child’s photo is being forwarded without permission, parents should consider speaking with the child or the parents of the child who is forwarding the photos. If necessary, the situation should be reported to police or school

administrators. • Get help if you suspect that your child has been a victim of sexting. Talk with victim service providers to get the right support for your child. Open and honest communication between parents and children can head off many problems, in this area as well as many others. Clearly, children need to understand that taking photographs of themselves that they wouldn’t want anyone to see is a bad idea. If those images don’t exist, they can’t be shared. And parents have every right to look through their children’s cellphone and social media accounts. It’s not spying; it’s being a parent. Being a kid definitely is scarier these days. Of course, that means it’s tougher to be a parent, too.

Man faces trial in four more deaths Serving two life terms for separate killings; pleaded not guilty to latest charges The ASSOCIATED PRESS ROCK ISLAND – Two men, a woman and a 2-year-old boy were brutally beaten to death in an apartment they shared in the northwest Illinois town of Rock Falls in June 2008. Each was hit with a hammer, again and again, an autopsy later showed. Authorities say the man who swung that hammer is Nicholas Sheley, who already is serving two life terms for killings in Galesburg and Sterling that same June. In all, police believe Sheley killed eight people in Illinois and Missouri over seven days. Sheley’s third murder trial in Illinois, focused on those four deaths, is expected to start this week in Rock Island after jurors are selected. Barring a mistrial, it could be his last trial in Illinois before facing further charges in Missouri that carry a possible death penalty. The 34-year-old has pleaded not guilty in the Rock Falls killings. But his defense attorney, Jeremy Karlin, has said in court that he doesn’t intend to present any witnesses. The killings shook Rock Falls hard, and the violence – which police say was fueled by alcohol and drugs – remains fresh in the minds of residents in the town of 9,200 almost six years later. The four victims – Brock Branson, 29; his fiancee Kilynna Blake, 20; her 2-year-old son, Dayan; and Kenneth Ulve, 25 – were all found in the apartment two days after they were killed. It was just a few days after a previous Sheley victim, 93-year-old Russell Reed, was discovered in the trunk of his car in Sterling, just across the Rock River about 110 miles west of Chicago. “People were afraid to go outside during that period,” said Rock Falls City Councilman Mark Vandersnick, 52. “It has not left anybody’s mind

Nicholas Sheley is led into a Whiteside County courtroom Jan. 16, 2013, in Morrison. Jury selection has begun in Rock Island, for Sheley who is charged in four killings in 2008 in Rock Falls, that police say were part of a two-state killing spree. Sheley, who is 34, has pleaded not guilty. He is already serving two life terms after being convicted of killing one man in Sterling and another in Galesburg.

“People were afraid to go outside during that period. It has not left anybody’s mind here in Rock Falls.” Mark Vandersnick, Rock Falls city councilman here in Rock Falls.” Prosecutors have not indicated whether they considered not trying Sheley for a third time in Illinois. He already is serving two life terms with no chance at parole, and the previous two trials cost counties upwards of $85,000 apiece. Vandersnick said he understands that due process calls for a trial in the Rock Falls killings. But given Sheley’s previous convictions and the charges he still faces in Missouri, he’d just as soon skip the third Illinois trial. “We should just ship him right to Missouri and be done with him,” Vandersnick said.

“Why waste all of our taxpayers’ money?” Defense attorney Karlin and prosecutors from the Illinois Attorney General’s Office and Whiteside County State’s Attorney’s Office would not talk about the case as the trial was getting underway. Police said Sheley killed Reed on June 23 as he searched for money to buy cocaine. Five days later, he killed 65-year-old Ronald Randall in Galesburg and stole his truck. Sheley has been convicted in both of those deaths. Prosecutors say he then went to the apartment in Rock Falls, first killing Ulve and

He also is charged with murder in the deaths of a Sherwood, Arkansas, couple who were traveling in Missouri, where prosecutors could pursue a death sentence. Jill and Tom Estes, both 54, were killed in Festus, Missouri, about 35 miles south of St. Louis. Sheley surrendered to police on July 1, 2008, outside a bar in Granite City, Illinois, just a few miles east of St. Louis. This week’s trial was moved out of Whiteside County to Rock Island at Karlin’s request because he feared Sheley couldn’t get a fair trial.

CHICAGO – About 700 flights were canceled Tuesday at Chicago’s two airports after an electrical problem sent smoke into the control room of a regional radar facility, forcing officials to temporarily halt all air traffic at one of the nation’s busiest aviation crossroads. The Federal Aviation Administration said all personnel were evacuated from the radar facility in Elgin around 11:30 a.m. They were allowed to return about three hours later. The Chicago Department of Aviation said a limited number of landings and departures had resumed by late afternoon. Elgin Fire Capt. Anthony Bialek said a bathroom exhaust fan in a ceiling overheated and melted insulation on some wires, and smoke was pushed through the facility’s ventilation system and into the control room. Bialek said it took about an hour to find the source of the smoke at Chicago Terminal Radar Approach Control, or TRACON. There were no injuries. Controllers at the

ave S

TRACON facility are responsible for managing the region’s air traffic as it leaves and approaches all of the area’s airports. Once an aircraft is within about 5 miles of an airport, TRACON workers hand over control to that airport’s tower. Inbound flights already in the area at the start of the shutdown were handled by a backup air traffic facility in Aurora. Some flights were diverted to other airports. Aerial TV footage Tuesday afternoon showed a large backup of aircraft along taxiways at O’Hare International Airport. Inside the terminals, people trying to rebook on later flights formed long lines. David Winter of Sarasota, Florida, said he and his wife, Denise, would stay overnight in Chicago after their flight was canceled. “My wife hates to fly ... so she literally asked me if we could rent a car and drive,” Winter said, adding that they ruled it out and were rebooked on a Wednesday flight. Instead, the retired couple stopped off at an airport cocktail lounge. “So, obviously, we’re not in dire straits,” he said.

Ambush kills six soldiers in Ukraine Germany wants peace talks with pro-Russia rebels, central government By NATALIYA VASILYEVA and JIM HEINTZ The Associated Press KIEV, Ukraine – An insurgent ambush killed six soldiers Tuesday in eastern Ukraine as Germany moved to jumpstart a possible plan toward peace that includes launching a dialogue on decentralizing the government in Kiev. Ukraine’s leadership appeared cool to the plan and U.S. officials view its prospects for success skeptically. But some analysts say Russian President Vladimir Putin is more likely to accept a deal that doesn’t come from Washington.

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier is in Ukraine to try to broker a quick launch of talks between the central government and pro-Russia separatists. That would be a first step in implementing a “road map” drawn up by the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe aimed at settling the crisis. The OSCE is a trans-Atlantic security and rights group that includes Russia and the U.S., whose sparring over each other’s role in Ukraine sometimes overshadows events on the ground. Speaking in Brussels, acting Prime Minister Arseniy

Yatsenyuk thanked the OSCE for its plan but said Ukraine has drawn up its own “road map” for ending the crisis and noted the people of his country should settle the issue themselves. A settlement has been elusive, as insurgents in eastern Ukraine seize police stations and government buildings. Two regions in the east have declared themselves independent after a weekend referendum, and one of them, Donetsk, has appealed for annexation by Russia. Ukrainian forces have mounted an offensive to try to put down the armed insurgents. On Tuesday, the

Defense Ministry said six soldiers were killed by insurgents who ambushed a convoy. The separatist leader in Luhansk, one of the regions that declared independence, was shot and wounded, insurgents said. The U.S. and Western European countries accuse Russia of fomenting the unrest, with the goal of destabilizing the country or seeking a pretext to invade and seize eastern regions, which are largely Russian-speaking and the heartland of Ukrainian industry. Russia in turn denounces Ukraine’s caretaker government, which took power after pro-Russia president Viktor

slapped an array of sanctions on Russia both for its alleged role in the east and for its annexation of Crimea, the Black Sea peninsula that voted to split from Ukraine in March.

Nigeria considers negotiations with Boko Haram kidnappers By BASHIR ADIGUN and HARUNA UMAR The Associated Press ABUJA, Nigeria – U.S. reconnaissance aircraft flew over Nigeria in search of the nearly 300 kidnapped schoolgirls Tuesday, a day after the Boko Haram militant group released the first evidence that at least some of them are still alive and demanded that jailed fighters be swapped for their freedom. A Nigerian government official said “all options” were open – including negotiations or a possible military operation with foreign help – in the effort to free the girls, who were shown fearful and huddled together dressed in gray Islamic veils as they sang Quranic verses under the guns of their captors in a video released Monday. The footage was verified as authentic by Nigerian authorities, who said 54 of the girls had been identified by

relatives, teachers and classmates who watched the video late Tuesday. The abduction has spurred a global movement to secure the girls’ release amid fears they would be sold into slavery, married off to fighters or worse following a series of threats by Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau. Protesters marched through the streets of the capital, Abuja, Tuesday to demand more government action to find and free the girls, who are believed to be held in the vast Sambisi forest some 20 miles from the eastern town of Chibok, where they were seized from their school on April 15. A U.S. reconnaissance mission was being carried out by a manned MC-12 surveillance aircraft, which is based in Niger, according to senior U.S. defense officials in Washington. In addition to the turboprop model which has seen heavy use in Afghanistan,

U.S. officials were also considering the use of drones. Gen. David Rodriguez, head of U.S. Africa Command, was in Abuja on Tuesday meeting with officials at the U.S. Embassy, according to the defense officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. The Nigerian military said in a statement that Rodriguez visited Nigeria’s defense headquarters to discuss U.S. support for Nigeria’s campaign against the Boko Haram militants, who have killed more than 1,500 people this year in a campaign of bombings, massacres and kidnappings. Nigeria’s government initially said there would be no negotiations with Boko Haram, but that stance appeared to have been relaxed amid growing public outrage at home and abroad over the failure to rescue the girls.

8BRIEFS BAGHDAD – Militants unleashed a wave of car bombings in Iraq on Tuesday, killing at least 34 people and sending thick, black smoke into the Baghdad skies in a show of force meant to intimidate the majority Shiites as they marked what is meant to be a joyous holiday for their sect. The attacks came nearly two weeks after Iraqis cast ballots in the country’s first parliamentary election since the U.S. military withdrawal in 2011. No preliminary results have yet been released, deepening a sense of uncertainty in a country strained by a resurgence of violence. It was the deadliest day in Iraq since April 28, when militant strikes on polling stations and other targets killed 46. An al-Qaida spin-off group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant claimed responsibility for the attacks, adding that they were in retaliation for military operations being carried out by government forces in Fallujah.

Obama presents medal to Afghanistan veteran WASHINGTON – It could have been over for Kyle J. White just 30 seconds into the Taliban ambush, when a rocket-propelled grenade knocked him unconscious. But he came to and by the time the four-hour firefight in Afghanistan was over, White, reeling from concussions and shrapnel in his face, had saved one comrade’s life and helped secure the evacuation of other wounded Americans. On Tuesday, White became only the seventh living recipient of the Medal of Honor for actions in Iraq or Afghanistan, the latest reminder of the post-Sept. 11 conflicts and U.S. sacrifices President Barack Obama has sought to bring to an end. “We pay tribute to a soldier who embodies the courage of his generation,” Obama said. With the medal, White, who was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress syndrome after the ambush, also draws attention to the recent scrutiny confronting the Veteran’s Affairs health care system and allegations of lapses in care and delays in mental health treatment.

Bill to renew tax breaks clears hurdle in Senate WASHINGTON – A bill to renew more than 50 expired tax breaks for businesses and individuals cleared a key hurdle in the Senate Tuesday, giving hope to millions of taxpayers who would otherwise be hit with unwelcome tax increases next spring. Other hurdles remain, however. The Senate voted 96-3 to open debate on the bill, which has strong backing from the business community but would add about $85 billion to the budget deficit. Almost every year, Congress routinely renews the tax breaks. This year they were allowed to expire at the start of the year – meaning taxpayers would get hit when they file their 2014 returns next spring. The Senate bill would extend the tax breaks through 2015.

IRS paid at least $13B in improper tax credits WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service paid more than $13 billion in tax credits last year to people who may not have qualified, a government investigator said Tuesday. The Earned Income Tax Credits were supposed to go to low-income working families. The agency’s inspector general issued a report Tuesday saying the improper payments were between $13.3 billion and $15.6 billion. That’s about a quarter of all EITC payments. “The IRS can and must do more to protect taxpayer dollars from waste, fraud and abuse,”

said J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration. The IRS said it is aggressively fighting tax fraud, and is improving its efforts to police EITC payments. The agency said it has stopped nearly 15 million suspicious returns since 2011, blocking more than $50 billion in fraudulent refunds.

Tea party favorite wins Nebraska’s GOP primary WASHINGTON – The tea party scored a win in Nebraska on Tuesday as university president Ben Sasse captured the Repub-

lican nomination for U.S. Senate in a bitter race that highlighted the fissures within the GOP. Two women set the stage for history-making in West Virginia. Sasse, who had the backing of outside conservative groups, Sarah Palin and Sen. Ted Cruz, grabbed 45 percent of the vote to 25 percent for Sid Dinsdale, the president of Pinnacle Bank, and 23 percent for former State Treasurer Shane Osborn. For months, Sasse was locked in an increasingly negative race with Osborn, who had the support of the Washington establishment and allies of

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

White House, Clinton aide push back against Rove WASHINGTON – An aide to Hillary Rodham Clinton and the White House pushed back Tuesday against Republican strategist Karl Rove for suggesting that the former secretary of state’s health could be an issue if she runs for president in 2016. Rove told Fox News, for which he is a commentator, that Clinton had a “serious health episode” that would be a legitimate issue for her in a potential

presidential campaign “whether she likes it or not.” The New York Post reported Tuesday that Rove suggested at a private conference near Los Angeles last week that Clinton suffered brain damage. Rove disputed that he was referring to any brain damage. “I didn’t say she had brain damage. I said she had a serious health episode,” he said on Fox News.

Rubio: Open Congress’ retirement to all workers WASHINGTON – Younger workers would face higher

retirement ages and wealthier Americans would see their Social Security paychecks trail their less affluent neighbors under a plan proposed Tuesday by Sen. Marco Rubio. Rubio, a first-term Republican senator from Florida who is outlining a policy agenda as he weighs a presidential bid, also proposed allowing all Americans to join federal retirement accounts. He vowed to protect benefits for older Americans but he added that changes were needed if the system is to survive.

Drug Court graduates Edward Marrs (from left), Ronnie Bianchi, Michael Reichley, Kurt Sahlberg and Randy Roewer listen while fellow graduate Daniel White speaks Tuesday during the 22nd Judicial Circuit Adult Drug Court commencement ceremony at the McHenry County Courthouse in Woodstock.

Full year of sobriety required for program • DRUG COURT

“I was a slave to my own addiction. I knew if I went to the Department of Corrections, all that would come from it is I would be a better criminal when I came out.”

Continued from page A1 appearing in court and submitting to drug screens. Some may also be required to attend Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings. Another requirement for graduation is a full year of sobriety. “You guys know better than anybody – this is not an easy program to complete,” said Scott Block, director of the program. The goal is to reduce recidivism and substance abuse among the program’s nonviolent offenders, and at the same time, save money on costly prosecutions and incarceration. Ninety-one people have participated in the drug court, including 16 who have graduated, since the program started in 2011. At least 80 of those were heroin addicts. Combining the criminal history of the current participants and alumni, there were 782 prior misdemeanors, felonies and DUIs within McHenry County alone, Block said. State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi read off a laundry list of prior offenses for Tuesday’s graduates: aggravated assault, possession of a controlled substance, DUI, disorderly conduct, theft, residential burglary, trespassing, domestic battery. The list goes on. “You guys covered every charge in the criminal code,” the state’s attorney said. “But

Ronnie Bianchi on graduating from McHenry County’s Drug Court program you made it. Congratulations.” Ronnie Bianchi’s intake photo from the day he started the drug court program was on display behind him as he accepted his certificate for completing the program. In the photo he had pale skin, deep dark circles under his eyes, unkempt hair, scraggly facial hair. On Tuesday, wearing a suit and tie, Ronnie Bianchi beamed when he thanked his drug court team that included probation officers, treatment providers, a judge and members of the state’s attorney’s and sheriff’s offices. “I was a slave to my own addiction,” said Ronnie, 221 days sober. “I knew if I went to the Department of Corrections, all that would come from it is I would be a better criminal when I came out.” Also graduating were Edward Marrs, Michael Reichley, Randy Roewer, Kurt Sahlberg and Daniel White. The county’s Drug Court program is presided over by Judge Charles Weech.

Knee Pain?

NEW FDA APPROVED TREATMENT PROVEN TO RELIEVE KNEE PAIN

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

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

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

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

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

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

✔ Do you wake up with knee pain? ✔ Does your knee pain keep you from certain activities? ✔ Have you been told you need a knee replacement? ✔ Are you active and sometimes suffer from sore knees? ✔ Do you take medications for knee pain? ✔ Do you have difficulty going up and down stairs due to knee pain? ✔ Are you considering surgery to alleviate knee pain? ✔ Have you tried everything to get rid of knee pain with out success? If you answered yes to at least 4 of these questions, you are ready to experience the relief and healing found at Superior Health & Wellness.

Start living your life

PAIN FREE!

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

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

Consider these facts before surgery People who suffer from knee pain typically try supplements or pain medications before seeking help from a doctor. When all else fails and the pain is too much, some feel that surgery is the only option. Before you put yourself through months of immobility, pain, rehab and hefty medical bills, consider something else. Superior Health and Wellness

Disturbing trend in District 155 The Illinois attorney general’s office will determine whether late-night votes to give administrative raises and extend the superintendent’s contract after closed-session discussions by School District 155 board members was legal. The district’s teachers’ union has filed an Open Meetings Act complaint with the attorney general. The teachers contend For the record that unanimous votes to approve School board members may superintendent not have violated the letJohnnie Thomas’ ter of the law regarding the recommendation Open Meetings Act, but they of budget increascertainly broke the spirit of es for administrathe law. tive salaries and to extend Thomas’ contract should not have happened because the agenda item said the board would meet to identify assistant superintendent positions. The district contends because neither vote included financial details, both measures will have to come to the board in open session to become official. It also says the teachers’ complaint likely referenced a preliminary agenda. An updated draft that included “administrative contracts” under closed session discussion items was distributed at the meeting and posted at the District 155 office 48 hours in advance, the district says. Union leader Justin Hubly said the agenda distributed at the meeting to association members in attendance did not have that item included. “Our members are just looking for this school board to be open and honest with the public and with us. We seem to miss that frequently,” Hubly said. “Why would you approve the superintendent contract without financial terms? What’s the purpose of that vote?” School board members may not have violated the letter of the law regarding the Open Meetings Act, but they certainly broke the spirit of the law. Keeping the public in the dark about school district business has become a disturbing trend with District 155. Last summer, it was the bleachers expansion at Crystal Lake South High School that skirted the city of Crystal Lake planning process and was done with minimal communication to residents around the school. Earlier this year, it was approving a new teachers contract that increased expenditures 7.1 percent for teachers’ salaries and benefits over the life of the contract. It did so without providing any details of the contract to the public until the school board voted on it. We continue to encourage District 155 to do the public’s business with transparency and public involvement.

Access to Holmes trial There’s an easy way to help ensure admitted Aurora theater shooter James Holmes gets a fair sanity trial – and guarantee that the victims themselves be allowed to watch court proceedings if they choose. Holmes’ defense attorneys last week appealed to the Colorado Supreme Court in an effort to prevent victims from sitting through the trial if they’ve been called as prosecution witnesses. The high court wisely turned back that request without comment. Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour already ruled against the defense, saying that the state Constitution specifically addresses the issue, ensuring victims access to court proceedings of their attackers. It does. And the amendment was created for just these types of circumstances. Holmes’ guilt or innocence isn’t the subject of this trial. Holmes’ attorneys have admitted to prosecutors and the court that the former Anschutz doctoral student plotted and carried out one of the most violent and deadly public shooting attacks in the country. Holmes killed 12 people and injured another 70 during the rampage. This trial is about why he did it. And for the hundreds of people trapped, killed, shot, injured or terrorized at that theater during Holmes’ July 20, 2012, massacre, that question continues to dominate their lives. It’s unthinkable that the number of victims who suffered, and continue to suffer, because of Holmes would be precluded from finding out for themselves how it is that mental illness compelled this man to plan and execute so much violence. These direct victims, this entire community has suffered too much. Any victim who chooses should be permitted to watch trial proceedings. The Aurora Sentinel

Gullible voters To the Editor: It has been a while since the last referendum in School District 300. With this latest teacher-student sex scandal, I fully expect the Illinois Education Association spinmasters to morph this thing into a cry for higher taxes. Local voters are extremely gullible when it comes to the education industry pleading for more money for the children. Some of us are fully aware that translates into

raises, but the mastermind propagandists at the district will claim it is to better fund higher quality staff, maybe we’re not paying enough for sufficient background checks. It is a well known fact District 300 employees are being paid at or near poverty level and have been since public education was invented. Maybe they’ll claim this criminal activity is to be expected since teachers aren’t even being paid a living wage, you know. They will undoubtedly dream up some scenario whereby more money (higher taxes) will ultimately solve this pervasive dilemma forever, or at least until next time they want raises.

hour knows that it regularly gets backed up 2-plus miles to Route 25. How will this bypass west of 31 help traffic over 2 miles to the east? Who in their right minds envisioned a scenario where the socalled western bypass had a positive effect on traffic in the area? Oh, that’s right, the morons at the state and local levels. They figured that something must be done, so they approved the construction of a project that will have a minimal impact. But, hey, I’ve only lived here for my entire life, so what do I know?

Lead by example; redistribute Vatican wealth I have great respect for the humility displayed by Pope Francis, but in his latest call for the “legitimate” redistribution of wealth, he has it backward. Instead of taking more money from those who have earned it, he should advocate for creating new wealth. If the money I have earned, saved, invested and spent responsibly to care for myself and my family is confiscated by the state (and goodness knows the state already takes a lot of it), who is going to care for us should I retire or become incapacitated? I can’t live on Social Security alone. What will happen to the charities to which I now contribute? Will the government give them an equivalent amount? Where will that money come from? Time magazine reported that, according to the best guess of bankers, Vatican wealth is between $10 billion and $15 billion. If Pope Francis is serious about redistribution, he should lead by example and sell all Vatican property, including its valuable artwork, empty its bank and give the money to the Italian government, or to the United Nations. Charity and philanthropy

VIEWS Cal Thomas are better than wealth redistribution because they create a bond between the giver and the receiver, unlike an anonymous government check. These donations also establish an expectation that the receiver has a moral responsibility to use the money or services wisely and be accountable to the giver. What happens when the giver runs out of money? Will the receiver invest the money he already has been given to build wealth for himself, or will he squander it and eventually end up back where he started? And if the previously poor receiver becomes wealthy, should he then be expected to give his money to the state and resume his previous condition of poverty? Redistribution, or whatever name you give the practice, is socialism. Socialism often leads to mutually shared poverty. Poverty has many causes, but there are mainly four: 1) a dictatorial governmental system that thwarts individual initiative

and liberty; 2) a religious system that oppresses people, especially women, in the name of an angry deity who is ready to pounce on anyone having pleasurable experiences; 3) the wrong economic system, which stifles growth and discourages risk-taking; 4) Wrong lifestyle choices when it comes to education, sex, marriage and crime. The U.S. has tried redistribution in Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal and Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty. It doesn’t work. In fact, according to a 2014 report by the Council of Economic Advisers, the percentage of the population in poverty declined only 16 percent between 1967 and 2012 and, in 2012, “there were 49.7 million Americans grappling with the economic and social hardships of living below the poverty line, including 13.4 million children.” Redistributing America’s poor children from their failing public schools to better ones would improve their long-term prospects, but liberal politicians won’t let them escape for fear of losing political contributions from teachers’ unions. George Gilder, author of the best seller “Wealth and Poverty,” has observed: “As

Marxist despots and tribal socialists from Cuba to Greece have discovered to their huge disappointment, governments can neither create wealth nor effectively redistribute it, they can only expropriate it and watch it dissipate. Under capitalism, wealth is less a stock of goods than a flow of ideas and information, the defining characteristic of which is surprise.” In a speech to the heads of major UN agencies meeting in Rome last week, Pope Francis also said about wealth distribution: “Specifically, this involves challenging all forms of injustices and resisting the economy of exclusion, the throwaway culture and the culture of death which nowadays sadly risk becoming passively accepted.” He’s right about that, but removing barriers to the creation of wealth is a better path to elevating the poor than penalizing the wealthy through asset confiscation. • Cal Thomas’ latest book is “What Works: Common Sense Solutions for a Stronger America” is available in bookstores now.

COLLISION SENDS 3 TO HOSPITAL ALGONQUIN – Three people were taken to the hospital following a head-on collision Tuesday, an Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District official said. They were brought to the hospital as a precautionary measure and had injuries that were not life-threatening, Battalion Chief John Greene said. The two-car crash took place just west of Randall Road heading into the parking lot for Joe Caputo & Sons Fruit Market in Algonquin, he said. It shut down the entrance for about a half an hour, Greene said.

TIPSTER GETS $400 REWARD CARY – An anonymous tipster received a $400 reward for providing information that led to the arrest of a Cary woman and a boy on drug charges. The tip indicated that the woman was growing marijuana in the basement of her East James Way home, according to a news release. Rachel A. Maloney, 44, of Cary, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana. She was sentenced May 6 to a year of probation. The boy, whose age was not released, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, delivery of a controlled substance, delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school and possession of drug paraphernalia. Crime Stoppers is a way to anonymously report illegal activity, and rewards are given out based on the seriousness of the crime, type and number of criminal charges and number of offenders arrested. The CaryGrove Crime Stoppers Hotline is 800-762-3060.

Second arson trial underway Man accused of torching Pistakee Highlands home in revenge bid By CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – Attorneys from both sides painted a different picture of the 24-yearold Elmhurst man accused of starting a fire that destroyed two cars and a Pistakee Highlands home. There’s the Joseph O. Ziegler who prosecutors said was a revenge seeker, angry about stolen drugs. A “genius” who missed his intended target, instead setting fire to a home two doors away, Assistant State’s Attorney Dave

Johnston said. Then there’s the Ziegler who defense attorneys said was a patsy who cooperated with police. There’s no evidence placing him at the crime, Assistant Public Defender Angelo Mourelatos Joseph O. said. Someone Ziegler else’s clothes 24 were found at the scene of the fire and there was no trace of accelerants on Ziegler’s

clothing. Ziegler is on trial this week, facing multiple arson-related felonies, accused of setting fire to Roseanne Aitken’s house on Aug. 9, 2012, in Pistakee Highlands. This is the second time Ziegler has faced trial on charges that he started a fire in two vehicles – the blaze eventually spreading to the home. A jury in November failed to reach a unanimous decision and Judge Sharon Prather declared a mistrial on the arson charges, but Ziegler was convicted of burglary. Johnston said Ziegler in-

tended to torch the home of Nicholas Pennington because Ziegler believed he stole drugs from him. Pennington lived at 5107 Westwood Drive, outside Johnsburg; Aitken lived at 5113 Westwood. “He came very, very close to the object of his revenge,” Johnston said Tuesday in his opening statement. Some of the state’s witnesses – a crew of teenagers who admitted to drinking and taking drugs with Ziegler the night of the fire – testified that Ziegler said he wanted to “blow up” Pennington’s house

after the two had an argument earlier in the night. Two of the boys, Dakota Wilkinson, now 20 years old, and Devon Weber, 19, were taken into police custody immediately after the fire. Wilkinson initially fled from the authorities, and while handcuffed in the back of the squad car, he asked officers: “How much trouble am I in?” “Joe didn’t flee the scene like Dakota,” Mourelatos said. Both boys told Assistant State’s Attorney Robert Zalud

MCC leader pushes expansion End-of-year humor By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – McHenry County College president Vicky Smith attempted to break a gridlock on future expansion for the college by giving trustees a slew of statistics showing a new building is necessary. Trustees have spent more than a year discussing expansion options ranging from small renovations to $40 million buildings with no clear consensus, but Smith said statistics show more room is badly needed for basic education needs. Of the 39 community colleges in Illinois, McHenry County College ranks 33rd when it comes to gross square footage per full-time equivalent student.

The average gross square foot of space per student increased from 125 square feet in 2001 to roughly 140 in 2012 among Illinois community colleges. In 2012, McHenry County College had 92 square feet per full-time equivalent student. Nearby Elgin Community College had 154 square feet per full-time equivalent student. “You don’t necessarily have to compare us,” Smith said. “But you can see why it is tough for us to find space to schedule classes.” In addition to the squarefoot comparison, Smith said the average class size at the college is 22.9 students – the second highest in the state – compared to the 18.7 students per class average. Smith urged the board to

select an architect within the next two months to start the process of at least developing ideas of how expansion could look. In the meantime, Smith said she would likely need to put portable classrooms on the campus to make space for classes starting in the fall. Trustee Tom Wilbeck said statistics and data are too focused on the peak hours of classroom usage between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and not the 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. hours the space can be used for. Using data from the college, Wilbeck said 43 percent of classes have fewer than 15 students in them and roughly half the art classes have 10 students or less. He also said 64 percent of classrooms are

in Milwaukee every six months ever since as doctors monitored her condition – and her weight. Once she reached 35 pounds, they’d be able to perform surgery, but on her birthday last November, Emily collapsed while on the phone with her grandmother. “When she passed out, that was a heart attack for me,” Valerie Swiercz said. “If I was going to have a heart attack, that day was the day. I did panic. I thought I could be cool and prepared because I knew something could happen like that, but I freaked out.” Several tests revealed Emily’s heart was hour-glass shaped, showed signs of collapsing, was working too fast and was enlarged. The hole in the wall of her heart had also grown. The doctor suggested performing surgery as soon as possible.

looking. I started stressing. That is just from her surgery. That’s not including every week that we had to go down to Chicago afterward.” Valerie Swiercz had to put her work on hold for two weeks. She works as a bus driver and at a gas station in Crystal Lake. Emily will also need follow-up surgery for a valve replacement, either when she’s done growing or when the replacement becomes necessary. To help cover the costs, a group of friends, who had formed a charitable group called 4 Friends By Friends last year, have planned a bowling fundraiser. “That’s the reason why we all came together, four friends to support people that need that kind of support because we understand more than anything what it’s like to lose a child or lose a family member or to have something be wrong with one of our children,” said the group’s president, Misty Ahrens of Crystal Lake.

addressing the board with pleas for more space, Smith also said the college would like to move forward with an interim solution until trustees can come to an agreement on expansion. Smith said the college would convert the atrium into five rooms with seethrough dividers that would give students a space to meet and socialize. The conversion would cost roughly $60,000 with all the furniture and dividers that would be needed. “It’s not that we haven’t been listening to all the students who have been coming forward,” Smith said. “This can serve as an interim until we get additional space here.”

limited to, stake-outs, swipes to determine residue and waterboarding. Feel free to call in back-up if needed.” A phone call to Johnson was not returned. District 300 spokeswoman Allison Strupeck in an email statement said Johnson’s email was improper. “Mr. Johnson’s comments are entirely inappropriate and do not exhibit the professionalism expected of our staff,” Strupeck said. The email was written before several students on Thursday dumped several gallons of water, baby oil, dish soap and laundry soap throughout an upstairs hallway and created slippery conditions. Eight students who participated in the senior slipand-slide prank may still be allowed to participate in graduation ceremonies this weekend. The students, who were not identified, and their parents met with building administrators on Monday and were told that to participate in graduation ceremonies they would “need to write a letter to the school assuring that they would be well behaved at graduation,” Strupeck wrote. The students each slid down the soapy hallway, but there is no evidence they helped organize or perpetrate the prank, Strupeck wrote. After the school receives the letters, administrators will meet with each student and let them know of their decision. “[Because] the students with whom administrators met ... were not apparently the organizers of the prank, administration is willing to consider other outcomes on a case-by-case basis,” Strupeck wrote. The school has not been able to clearly identify the main culprits of the slick prank. If they had been identified, those students faced losing the privilege of walking at graduation, Strupeck said.

FOX RIVER GROVE: DISTRICT 3 TO SAVE $60K THROUGH 2022

FRG schools planning to refinance bonds By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com FOX RIVER GROVE – The District 3 school board made a financial move this week that is expected to help the district save about $60,000 through the 2022 fiscal year. The Fox River Grovebased district plans to refinance $1.75 million in bonds it took out in 2004, after it had a successful referendum. Superintendent Tim Mahaffy said there will be roughly $10,000 to $12,000 in savings

a year, which will be money the district will not have to collect from taxpayers. The total savings is expected to be about $60,000 over the life of the bond. Mahaffy said that amount is equivalent to a teacher’s salary and benefits and an instructional aide. The amount saved won’t be finalized until the bond sale, which is scheduled to take place in June. Mahaffy said the move will require the district to go through another bond rating with Stan-

dard and Poor’s. The district’s current bond rating is AA, and Mahaffy said he doesn’t expect it to change. With the refinancing, the district plans to keep the same maturity dates on the bonds, Mahaffy said.

When the district took out the original bond in 2004, it used the money to help maintain programming such as music, arts and physical education. The district had a financial “early warning” status with the state for two years.

“We were able to keep class size down and [the teaching staff] intact,” Mahaffy said. In other District 3 action, the school board decided to keep running its buses at the same time when it has late start Mondays during the school year. The district has 26 late starts a year, so teachers can have staff development time one hour before class begins. For this school year, it kept the buses running at the regular time on late start days,

and provided supervision at the school for students, Mahaffy said. He added middle school students have been using the time as a study hall. Mahaffy said roughly 18 percent of the students in the district came to the supervision period before school began on late start days. Of those students, 62 percent of them came to school on a school bus. “The decision was made because the community is used to it and it has worked well,” Mahaffy said.

How many new words can you make using the letters in the words:

What happens when you put a car on a ramp? It will roll down to the ground. An invisible force is pulling it down: gravity.

Susan and Taylor each made a gravity-powered car. Gravity has the same amount of pull on all of the cars in a race down a ramp. Each kid is using science to make his or her car go faster.

“Racers start your engines!” is something you normally hear at an automobile race like NASCAR or the Indy 500.

Susan is using weight. She has glued some pennies to her car to make it heavier. But its boxy shape has drag which slows it down.

But, what if a car had no engine? How would it move? Could it still be a race car?

he E in STEM is for engineering. Engineers are changing the world all of the time. They dream up creative, practical solutions and work with other smart, inspiring people to invent, design and create things that matter. Be an engineer and create your own Gravity Racer! Here are instructions to get you started.

Taylor has engineered his car to have less drag. When a car moves through the air, it causes friction. Friction causes drag, a force that slows a moving object. Strea Streamlined and smooth objects have less drag than jagged or flat oones.

When I set my shoes down, they would float. But you could fly like a superhero! Karyme 4th grade If we didn’t have gravity, it would be hard to eat, drink, or play with our friends.

If there was no gravity I would not like it and I would like it at the same time. I would not like it because then everything would float so it would be hard to drink stuff. I would also like it because I would be able to float all the way to the cafeteria. It would be cool to float because instead of carrying something heavy, you could just have it float. I would not like it because when you want to drink something, it would be really hard. Wow! I can’t imagine not having gravity! Hannah 4th grade

If there was no gravity, I would fly everywhere. Also, instead of using a car, I would lift it and just bounce around. Having no gravity would be great! Victor 2nd grade Walking on air would be horrible. Anything liquid would be in the air. My life would be chaotic with no Plants and animals would be floating. gravity because everything I usually do The Earth is 70% water so without would be different. For example, I gravity, the water would be all around could not ride my bike or drive cars. I the world. For life you need gravity. could not play football or any sports. I Max could not even fly a kite because I 5th grade would be the kite. In conclusion, I like earth as it is! Walking on air would be fun because Justin you would be weightless. No gravity!

I just from my brother! cleaned my room and the next thing I Miguel know, everything is on the ceiling. 4th grade Without gravity, I would go crazy! Jimena 5th grade

Please include your school and grade.

Life without gravity would be challenging. People would be floating everywhere & it would be very hard to do stuff like eating, sleeping, going to the bathroom, sitting still, getting exercise, and just moving around. Your food will be all over the place as you try to catch it and shove your food into your mouth before it floats away again. You would have to strap yourself and unstrap yourself to go to sleep & to wake up. Going to the bathroom would be just plain hard! It would be impossible to be still unless you strap yourself down. Also, your muscles will be very flimsy because gravity keeps you to the ground and it would be hard without gravity to try to exercise. And you have to move your arms & legs to prevent people from bumping into you. And if you are outside, and if you don’t have the ability to move, you would most likely just keep floating up to the sun. Like I said, life without gravity would be challenging! That’s what life would be like without gravity. Katie Without gravity it would be way too hard to do stuff like cleaning my room or helping my mom. Marlene 2nd grade

Rapper Gucci Mane pleads guilty to gun charge

Baldwin arrested in NYC after bike flap NEW YORK – Actor Alec Baldwin was arrested and issued two summonses after allegedly acting belligerently toward two officers who had stopped him for riding his bicycle the wrong way down a New York City street, police said Tuesday. The “30 Rock” star was riding his bike the wrong way at 16th Street and Fifth Avenue near Union Square Park in Manhattan when he was stopped at about 10:15 a.m. and asked to show identification, they said. That’s when Baldwin, 56, refused to show his ID and acted belligerently, prompting the officers to handcuff him and take him and his bicycle to a nearby precinct, they said. Baldwin was issued two summonses – for riding a bike the wrong way down a street and for disorderly conduct – and was then released, police said. He is scheduled to appear in Manhattan Criminal Court on the disorderly conduct summons July 24. A representative for Baldwin didn’t immediately return a request for comment. But from his verified Twitter account, Baldwin said he’d been handcuffed for riding the wrong way on Fifth Avenue and posted the last name and badge number of the arresting officer. He also tweeted that photographers outside his home terrified his daughter and disparaged New York City, calling it “a mismanaged carnival of stupidity.” The Oscar- and Tony-nominated actor is known for his incendiary temper, most notably exposed when a voice mail of him berating his now-teenage daughter, Ireland Baldwin, came to light in 2007. He later said the message horrified him. He was kicked off a plane in 2011 after refusing to stop playing a cellphone game, and he’s gotten into confrontations with news photographers. His personal life also was splashed into public last fall when he and his wife testified against a Canadian actress accused of stalking him. The actress, Genevieve Sabourin, was convicted after a Manhattan trial that delved into what she said was a steamy date and years of the actor stringing her along romantically. He said it was simply a professional dinner that degenerated into her harassing him. In February, Baldwin wrote a New York magazine cover story decrying the constant tabloid coverage of his comings-and-goings in New York City, saying he “probably” needs to move out of the city and suggested he may soon be calling Los Angeles home.

ATLANTA – Rapper Gucci Mane pleaded guilty on Tuesday to a federal firearms charge in Atlanta. The 34-year-old, whose real name is Radric Davis, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon after reaching an agreement with prosecutors. The charge he pleaded guilty to carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail and a fine of up to $250,000. Prosecutors recommended that Davis be sentenced to serve three years and three months in prison. His sentencing is set for July 28. Davis was found to have a gun on Sept. 12 and had a different gun in his possession two days later, and he acted erratically and threatened people on both occasions, according to the indictment. The plea agreement focused only on the latter incident. Early on Sept. 14, a man who said he was a friend of the rapper’s called police to say Davis was walking down the street behaving violently, according to a police report. When police arrived, Davis smelled strongly of marijuana, cursed at them, called them names and threatened to shoot them, the report says. Police arrested him on a disorderly conduct charge and found a clear bag with what they believe was marijuana and a loaded .40-caliber Glock handgun, the report says. An ambulance was called, and Davis was sedated and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Trial focuses on ‘Wizard of Oz’ actor’s finances CLAYTON, Mo. – Relatives of Mickey Carroll, who played one of the Munchkins in “Wizard of Oz,” are in court arguing that a caretaker in his last years bilked the actor of nearly $500,000. Carroll, a hypopituitary dwarf, had been suffering from Alzheimer’s disease when he died in May 2009 at age 89. He lived in the St. Louis County town of Bel-Nor. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Carroll’s nieces and

nephews sued caretaker Linda Dodge in 2011, after learning that much of the actor’s estate had been depleted. A St. Louis County Circuit Court jury is hearing the case. The family’s attorney, Patrick McCarthy, said Dodge and maybe others slowly drained Carroll’s assets that once amounted to $500,000. Lawyers for Dodge dispute that claim, saying she was there for Carroll when his family was not, taking him to doctor’s appointments and the store and helping with hygiene. Attorney Christopher Blaesing said Carroll “was a small man but he was larger than life when it came to his spending.” He said Carroll went out to eat almost every day, tipping generously, and gave lavish gifts to family and charities. But Carroll’s niece, Josephine Romeiser, the personal representative for his estate, testified that he was frugal. She said almost everyone in the family had lost contact with him in his later years. When it was time to manage his estate, Romeiser said, relatives learned his house had been emptied and records were scarce. Dodge’s attorneys plan to argue that Carroll was competent and in control of his financial decisions.

Chenoweth coming back to Broadway NEW YORK – “Glee” and “Wicked” star Kristin Chenoweth is chugging back to Broadway in the stylish screwball musical “On the Twentieth Century.” Producers said Tuesday the Tony- and Emmy-winner will co-star with Peter Gallagher in the show adapted from the 1934 film with lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green and music by Cy Coleman. Scott Ellis will direct and Warren Carlyle will choreograph. The show is about a shameless – and penniless – producer who hightails it out of Chicago after his stage version of “Joan of Arc” flops. He needs a hit and hopes one of his leading ladies who went on to fame to Hollywood can help. They meet aboard the Twentieth Century Limited train as it travels to New York City. The show will begin Feb. 12 and open March 12 at the American Airlines Theatre.

By ARTHUR ARKUSH aarkush@shawmedia.com The 2014 Bears are undoubtedly more talented than the 8-8 club that couldn’t get a fourth-down stop against the Packers to earn a trip to the postseason in Week 17. General manager Phil Emery again impressively navigated free agency, identifying his club’s greatest needs, devising a specific plan to correct those weaknesses and executing it. It’s too early to grade Emery’s most recent draft – or 2013’s, for that matter – but there’s a lot to be excited about. Although it’s More online true the three Visit ChicagoFootball.com biggest windows for team building for the latest Bears and NFL have closed – prenews. draft free agency, the NFL draft and the furious wave of undrafted free-agent signings – all good GMs approach every day as a chance to improve the roster. Emery proved in his first two full offseasons that he’s always in roster grinding mode, scanning the waiver wire and exploring trade scenarios. Four current Bears – defensive end David Bass, tight end Dante Rosario, fullback Tony Fiammetta and defensive tackle Nate Collins – latched on with the Bears between the draft and the start of the regular season. We’re aware these aren’t necessarily household names, but they’ve had defined roles and are squarely in the mix for similar contributions in 2014. So what positions could Emery still target? If you guessed safety, check behind Door No. 1 to see what you’ve won. The problem there is that there aren’t enough good starting safeties to go around, much less guys who can be found on the street. Nonetheless – and admittedly, predicting which guys might be served their walking papers is never fun – a quick scan of the clubs that added safety help in the draft includes one, the Eagles, who could cut their losses later in the summer. Second-year safety Earl Wolff is one name to file away. He struggled as a rookie and doesn’t have the length Emery covets, but Wolff logged six starts and is surely feeling the heat after the arrival of veteran Malcolm Jenkins and fourth-rounder Ed Reynolds. The Bears passed on addressing the backup tight end position in a lackluster draft year at the position. Good call; Emery landed Rosario last summer for a seventh-rounder, and players of his ilk figure to come free again. Rosario, Fendi Onobun, Zach Miller and Matt Mulligan offer little as pass catchers, however, and Martellus Bennett could be even better with a second receiving threat for two-tight formations. After drafting Eric Ebron with the 10th overall pick, the Lions released young Matt Veldman. The Packers could be preparing to

time,” senior captain Ali Fanning said. “We wanted to show everyone that we could do it, and I definitely think we proved ourselves today.” Larissa Dooley opened the scoring in the first half on a breakaway goal that beat South goalkeeper Jaclyn Przybylski. Five minutes later, Wolves midfielder Cassie Warton curled in a corner kick, making it 2-0.

BASEBALL: MARENGO 6, HARVARD 0

Kissack dominates on mound, at plate By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com

H. Rick Bamman – hbamman@shawmedia.com

Tight end Dante Rosario is a player the Bears acquired between the end of the draft and the start of training camp last year.

MARENGO – Koty Kissack’s transition to becoming Marengo’s leadoff hitter has been smooth and effective. Indians baseball coach Josh Maas hesitated using Kissack, his best hitter, as the leadoff man, but a recent offensive slump prompted a little lineup shuffle. “We really struggled. We were having trouble getting guys on base,” Maas said. “Koty’s a great

athlete, so when he does get on base we can get a little creative on the basepaths.” Kissack was as adept at getting on base as he was keeping Harvard’s batters off base Tuesday. He was 2 for 3 and scored twice while striking out 10 and firing a four-hitter for a 6-0 Big Northern Conference East Division victory at Rod Poppe Fields. “[Leadoff] is really good. I go up there and see a lot of pitches,” Kissack said. “I take more and try to see more pitches.”

The Indians (8-10 overall, 4-6 BNC East) have scored 17 combined runs in three games since Kissack moved from No. 2 to leadoff. Former leadoff man Noah Klick was 3 for 3 in the No. 6 spot with two doubles. “It was a change in the lineup that really worked out,” Klick said. “Leading off, I was looking to get on base more. Now, I’m looking to hit the ball hard. I was seeing pitches better today. I was swinging out of the zone [before]. We came around together as a

team and got out of that slump.” Klick almost had three doubles. On his last hit, he was almost halfway to second before retreating to first with an RBI single. Marengo rapped out 10 hits, including four doubles, and scored five earned runs off Hornets starter Peyton Schneider in five innings. Meanwhile, Kissack was mowing down Harvard hitters.

BIG TEN MEETINGS

Northwestern AD Phillips: Athletes need a vote The ASSOCIATED PRESS ROSEMONT – Northwestern athletic director Jim Phillips said college athletes need more than just a voice when it comes to issues that affect them. They need a vote. “That has to happen,” he said. But unionization? “I know it’s not the right mechanism for change nationally,” he said. Although Phillips opposes unionization, he hopes the discussion leads to changes that give athletes a greater say – including a vote – when it comes to their welfare, their health and their safety. That’s one of the biggest issues hanging over the college landscape, with former Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter leading the push to

form the first union for college athletes. And as Big Ten administrators gathered at the conference’s headquarters Tuesday, Phillips made a few things clear. He supports the motives behind the push to form a union. He just doesn’t think it’s the way to go. A regional director of the National Labor Relations Board ruled in March that they are university employees, giving them the go-ahead. Northwestern appealed. Players voted last month on whether to form the first union for college athletes, but the result is not known because the NLRB impounded the ballots pending the appeal and a possible court fight. “It goes against all that is what we believe is right in the landscape

of college athletics,” Phillips said. “We’re not the minor leagues. When 98.7 percent of your student-athletes don’t go on to play professional sports ... college athletics is college athletics. Is it in the right place? It’s not in the right place, Jim but we’re going to Phillips hopefully work to get it to the right place. But does that mean you drastically change the dynamics and the relationship of what college athletics is supposed to be?” Phillips doesn’t see a need for a third party to come between athletes and coaches and administrators. He also warned unionizing would lead to

higher costs and a decrease in scholarship opportunities. But he is adamant that athletes need more power. Simply putting them in advisory roles is not enough. “Let’s get them ... in a position where they’re allowed to vote and make a difference,” Phillips said. “They’re living the experience. Why wouldn’t we listen to them? They know more than we do about their day-to-day experiences as student-athletes.” Supporters said a union would help athletes obtain better compensation, medical care and other benefits. The day before Northwestern football players cast their ballots, the NCAA’s board of directors endorsed a proposal to give schools in the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC more power

to address such issues for its athletes, including adding the full cost-of-attendance in scholarships, expanded health insurance, additional help with academic and career counseling, and providing money for the families of athletes to travel to NCAA tournament events. A formal vote is not expected until August. “I think that we’ve got to find a way within the reform effort to find us some autonomy to do things a little bit differently given our situations,” Nebraska AD Shawn Eichorst said. Critics said the governing body is only moving on those issues now because of the possibility of unionizing. But NCAA officials have noted these issues have been on the agenda for years and got bogged down in the approval process.

PREAKNESS STAKES

‘Chrome’ ready for anything The ASSOCIATED PRESS

St. Louis Rams seventh-round draft pick Michael Sam listens to a question during a news conference Tuesday at the team’s practice facility in St. Louis.

ST. LOUIS RAMS

Confident Sam eager to prove Rams right First openly gay NFL player driven to be ‘great’ The ASSOCIATED PRESS ST. LOUIS – Michael Sam sure seems ready for all the attention. The first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team was confident and engaged Tuesday as he was formally introduced by the St. Louis Rams, handling questions and scrutiny with aplomb well beyond that of a typical seventh-round fringe prospect. “I’m determined to be great,” Sam said. Sam put his arm around coach Jeff Fisher after sharing the podium with other lateround picks, joked that he’d never before heard the term “tweener” and even rose in his chair in mock intimidation of fellow Missouri draftee E.J. Gaines, who’d been asked what the SEC

co-defensive player of the year was like as a teammate. Sam disagreed that his sexuality had been a secret at Missouri (he had come out to his teammates before last season). And he considers himself proof that it need not be a factor. “It’s OK to be who you are,” Sam said. “It’s OK to be comfortable in your own skin.” The appearance of perhaps the most famous seventh-round pick in NFL history attracted a massive throng. A half-dozen TV trucks lined a crammed parking lot at Rams Park, an hour before the team’s two first-round picks were due at the podium. “There’s some energy here,” general manager Les Snead said with a smile between rounds of interviews. “But I don’t think this is a circus. This deserves attention but we’ll get it over and

we’ll get to work.” Sam shared the dais with five other players taken in the sixth and seventh round Saturday as the draft came to a close. For his subsequent solo session, he was flanked by Fisher and Snead, with Rams chief operating officer Kevin Demoff joining the group. Everyone seemed eager to embrace Sam. “He’s a courageous young man,” said cornerback Lamarcus Jordan, a second-round pick. “He’s a brave young man that we need in this organization.” The team’s two first-round picks were first to the podium and welcomed Sam to the family. “You want playmakers,” defensive tackle Aaron Donald said “And he’s a playmaker.”

Bears announced Tuesday they agreed to four-year deals with fourth-round draft pick Ka’Deem Carey (running back, Arizona), sixth-rounder Patrick O’Donnell (punter, Miami, Florida) and seventh-rounder Charles Leno Jr. (offensive tackle, Boise State). The Bears also agreed to deals with safety Brock Vereen and quarterback David Fales on Monday. First-round pick Kyle Fuller of Virginia Tech (cornerback) and defensive tackle Will Sutton of Arizona State (third round) remain unsigned.

Authorities said Nelson, 20, kicked Kolstad in the head after another man punched Kolstad on Sunday in downtown Mankato. Authorities said Tuesday that they have arrested the man whom they believe punched Kolstad.

8SPORTS SHORTS Marian Central QB Bahl adds offer from Akron Marian Central quarterback Billy Bahl’s scholarship offer tour of the Mid-American Conference continued Tuesday. Bahl, a junior quarterback, picked up an offer from Akron. Among other schools in the hunt for the 6-foot-4, 210-pound Bahl are Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Western Michigan, Miami (Ohio), Buffalo, Ohio, Toledo and South Dakota. Bahl led the area last season with 2,510 passing yards. He threw for 29 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Bears agree to deal with 2nd-round pick, 3 others LAKE FOREST – The Bears agreed to a four-year contract with second-round draft pick Ego Ferguson. The Bears have been moving quickly to wrap up their picks, with six of eight having already agreed to deals.

Rutgers: Nelson dismissed from football program MANKATO, Minn. – Rutgers dismissed quarterback Philip Nelson from its football program after he was charged in an assault that left another man critically injured, while authorities announced Tuesday that a second suspect had been arrested. Rutgers coach Kyle Flood announced Nelson’s dismissal Tuesday in a statement. Nelson, a high school football star in Mankato, was a quarterback for Minnesota but transferred to Rutgers. He was charged Monday with

Prosecutor wants mental evaluation for Pistorius PRETORIA, South Africa – The chief prosecutor in the murder trial of Oscar Pistorius on Tuesday asked that the double-amputee runner be placed under psychiatric evaluation after an expert witness testified he had an anxiety disorder. Prosecutor Gerrie Nel noted that a psychiatrist for the defense had testified that the disorder she diagnosed in Pistorius may have played a role in his fatal shooting of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in his home Feb. 14, 2013. The prosecutor has acknowledged that an evaluation of Pistorius’ state of mind at a government facility could mean the trial, which began March 3, will be delayed. – Staff, wire reports

BALTIMORE – No matter what scenario he’s thrust into, California Chrome usually finds a way to make the adjustment. Sloppy track? No problem. Slow pace? Got it covered. Fast pace? Piece of cake. The Kentucky Derby winner tested the track at Pimlico Race Course for the first time Tuesday and took to it like a kid in a sandbox. “He seemed to handle the track just great,” assistant trainer Alan Sherman said. “He just jogged, but he was happy. He’s really happy right now. So that’s a good thing.” The Triple Crown hopeful brings a five-race winning streak into Saturday’s Preakness. Because there is a smaller field than the Derby, a shorter distance and several new shooters, this race has the potential to be different. Regardless of how it shapes up, California Chrome should be ready to deal with it. “He’s so tactical,” Sherman said. “If they go slow in front, he’ll take it right to them and push the horses in front of him. If they’re going fast in front, he can just sit off the pace. That’s the good thing about him. He doesn’t have one style of running. He’s pretty pushbutton. If you ask him, he’ll do it.” It’s supposed to rain Friday, but the weather forecast for Saturday is 70 degrees and

Sherman has no intention of watching The Weather Channel on an hourly basis. “We’re not scared,” he said. “He trained really good at Churchill on a sloppy track. He actually looked like he liked it a lot.” Owners Perry Martin and Steve Coburn bred an $8,000 mare to a $2,500 stallion to produce California Chrome, whose racing career did not generate much fanfare until he won the final stakes race at Hollywood Park, the King Glorious, by 6¼ lengths. That launched the five-win streak that propelled him into position to become the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed

in 1978. Along the way, the father-son training duo of Art and Alan Sherman realized they had a horse most handlers only dream about. “The King Glorious race, that opened my eyes up,” Alan said. “Then he just kept getting better. Then he won the California Breeders Derby. That was another impressive race. But the San Felipe was probably when I went, ‘Wow.’ ” In that wire-to-wire victory at Santa Anita, California Chrome ran the second-fastest time in the history of the race and beat trainer Bob Baffert’s Midnight Hawk by 7¼ lengths. Kristo was third, 13½ lengths behind the winner.

Recognizable RBs might be available • BEARS Continued from page C1 make a similar move with Andrew Quarless or perhaps Ryan Taylor, now that Richard Rodgers is in the mix. Hardly dynamic pass catchers, but just two examples – and more will arrive later in the offseason. The Cardinals released former second-rounder Ryan Williams, a running back who couldn’t get out of the training room and onto the field in the desert. Williams has medical red flags, but expect more recognizable names at a deval-

ued position to surface. Will they be deemed by Emery as a better No. 3 option than Michael Ford, Shaun Draughn or Jordan Lynch? It’s certainly possible. One team’s releases to monitor, at running back and almost every other position, is the Niners. With Marcus Lattimore and now Carlos Hyde fighting for Frank Gore’s table scraps, Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James are intriguing. One more position to consider is middle linebacker. Jon Bostic lacked instincts for the spot in Year 1, and

D.J. Williams hasn’t played 16 games since 2010. Perhaps the two best postdraft signings a season ago were linebackers, Arizona’s Karlos Dansby and Baltimore’s Daryl Smith. Could the Bears, who’ll be down to roughly $2 million in cap space after rookie signings, pounce on someone like oft-injured Pat Angerer or troubled Erin Henderson? It’s more likely they’ll see what transpires over the waiver wire during the coming months, but rest assured, Emery and his personnel department will exhaust every option.

GIRLS SOCCER: CLASS 1A HARVARD REGIONAL

R-B, Johnsburg to meet again in final By ALEX KANTECKI akantecki@shawmedia.com HARVARD – For the third year in a row, rivals Richmond-Burton and Johnsburg will meet with a sectional berth on the line. Top-seeded R-B defeated Harvard, 9-0, and second-seeded Johnsburg beat Marengo, 3-0, in Tuesday’s Class 1A Girls Soccer Harvard Regional. The teams will meet in the regional final at 11 a.m. Saturday. Johnsburg overcame a 2-1 deficit in last year’s final and won, 3-2, en route to the school’s first state tournament. The Skyhawks made it all the way to the state semifinals before losing to eventual state champion Quincy Notre Dame. In the first semifinal Tuesday, soph-

omore Meghan Vasseur opened up the scoring with 28:29 remaining in the first half for R-B, connecting on a shot from the edge of the penalty box that went just over the outstretched arms of goalkeeper Julissa Muralles (14 saves). The goal came seconds after R-B coach Chris Wagner could be heard on the sidelines, imploring his players to “Get the ball on the frame.” The Rockets scored five first-half goals, getting a pair of scores from Halley Havlicek and single scores from Mikaela Winkler and Jessica Guenther. “You only get so many opportunities in an important game like this,” said Winkler, who also recorded an assist. “You have to finish every opportunity you have.” Vasseur and Guenther each added

a second goal in the second half, and Camryn Davis and Lauren Otto scored to complete the scoring for R-B. “I look at one of our seniors and our captains, Julissa Moralles, and she had a tremendous season for us, helping the younger girls on the team,” Harvard coach David Abel said. “You’ve got to keep their minds in the game and keep them focused until the end, and she did that all season.” In the second semifinal, freshman forward Taylor Piggott scored with 33:18 remaining in the first half for Johnsburg (8-9-1), controlling a lob pass from Delaney Pruitt and beating two Marengo defenders to the box before sliding the ball into the lower right corner of the net. The Indians (6-8) played it close for

most of the game, but Johnsburg broke it open with two scores from Pruitt in the game’s final 24 minutes. “We’re just trying to come out strong, play 80 minutes and fight another day,” Pruitt said. “That’s our real motivation in all of this. “These are some of my best friends and I don’t want to stop playing with them, and that’s how I feel it is all around.” Marengo’s best scoring chance came with 18 minutes remaining, when senior forward Kate Kasch missed wide on a shot that traveled across the face of the goal. The Indians put seven shots on target, but couldn’t get any past goalkeeper Amanda Cherwin. “It’s a game we could have won,” Marengo coach Jim McKinnon said.

She also went 2 for 4 in the Gators’ Fox Valley Conference Valley Division win against first-place McHenry. The senior shortstop’s defensive performance in South’s win Friday at Cary-Grove was a game changer for the Gators.

Noteworthy SOFTBALL: PRAIRIE RIDGE 11, CARY-GROVE 2

Wolves stay in Valley hunt By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO mmontemurro@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – Whenever Sammy Hempen and some of her Prairie Ridge teammates feel a little off when hitting, they waste no time getting in extra swings during a game by using the cage next to their dugout. With her mechanics not feeling quite right, Hempen decided to take swings off a tee before her second at-bat Tuesday against Cary-Grove. The extra work immediately paid dividends for the senior. With the Wolves leading by a run in the second inning, Hempen hit a two-run single and Kate Didier followed with an RBI triple. Prairie Ridge capitalized on a multitude of C-G mental and physical errors as the Wolves cruised to an 11-2 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division win. The victory keeps the Wolves (16-7, 7-3 FVC Valley) in contention for the division title.

Hempen finished 2 for 3 with a double and three RBIs. She came inches away from a three-run homer in the fifth, but the ball hit off the top of the left field fence and bounced back into play. “All week, we’ve been focused on going back to our mechanics,” Hempen said. “Just focus on base hits, and the big hits will come. It definitely helped [hitting off the tee]. ... They’re a really good team so take advantage of any mistake they make is important.” The bottom line, Trojans coach Tammy Olson said, was C-G didn’t show up to play against the Wolves and it was “inexcusable.” “I hope it burns in their hearts right now about what they just did,” Olson said. “No, I don’t want them to forget this [game]. I want them to be mad about this.” C-G (12-10, 5-4) took a 1-0 lead in the first on Grace Pilz’s RBI single. But C-G gave the lead right back to the Wolves,

thanks in part to two errors in the first. Claire Bowman led off the first with a single, advancing on Hempen’s sacrifice bunt, and Didier reached on a fielding error. C-G pitcher Lauren Stanley got a strikeout for the second out of the inning, but Michelle O’Keefe hit an RBI single and another run scored on C-G’s second error of the inning to go ahead 2-1. Prairie Ridge wouldn’t relinquish the lead. Emily Widger hit a solo home run for the Wolves and Didier finished 1 for 3 with a triple and two RBIs. The Wolves scored three runs in the second, fourth and fifth innings. Amy Clemment went 2 for 4 with a double and two runs scored for the Trojans. C-G had the bases loaded with nobody out in the third but only came away with one run. Wolves freshman starting pitcher Hailey Baker (13-6) showed plenty of poise working out of the jam.

Anna Lopatin, Mallory Bellairs and Leiana Haanio scored in the shootout, and Marissa Krueger made three of her nine saves to capture the win and the FVC Fox title. “It feels great. It’s just like a big monkey lifted off our backs,” Woodstock coach Mike Golda said. “I’m really proud of the girls and the whole coaching staff.” Woodstock was down 2-0 with three minutes left in the first half when Lopatin scored on a penalty kick to make it a one-score game. They then tied the game early in the second half on a Leiana Haanio free kick from about 35 yards out. The Streaks will share the FVC Fox championship with Crystal Lake Central after the Tigers (10-4-1, 5-1 FVC Fox) defeated Woodstock North, 7-0, in Crystal Lake.

South’s Ross suffers neck injury in defeat • SOCCER Continued from page C1 With 1:05 remaining in the first half, Gators freshman defender Jenna Ross was injured in an on-ball collision with Dooley and did not get up. Ross was taken off on a stretcher with a neck injury and transported to Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin and then later transferred to Lutheran General in Park Ridge, where she will have an MRI and be examined by a pediatric surgeon. The game was delayed about 25 minutes because of the injury. Play resumed and the Wolves took a two-goal lead into the break. “We knew they were going to come out strong and we didn’t do a great job of being ready for it,” Brown said of his team’s second-half start. The second half turned out to have a crazy start. South (12-3-4, 5-1) struck just two minutes into the second half

when senior defender Audrey Collard scored on a shot that deflected off a Wolves defender and beat goalkeeper Brooke Laibly. However, the Wolves came right back when forward Erin Ginsberg scored on a left-footed shot off an assist from Warton. Then, three minutes later, the Gators cut the deficit back to one on a goal from Kimmy Sulikowski. A few minutes after the South goal, Ginsberg had another chance, which hit the post and fell right to sophomore forward Megan Walsh, who buried the shot into an empty net, giving the Wolves a 4-2 lead. Walsh added a second goal late in the game. “Prairie Ridge wanted it more than we did tonight,” Gators coach Jay Mueller said. “They wanted a share of the title, and they played like it.” Ginsberg added another assist to Dooley, who scored her second of the game with 21 minutes left.

Harvard leaves bases loaded in 5th inning • BASEBALL Continued from page C1 “[Kissack] attacked the strike zone,” Maas said. “He was attacking the strike zone and letting his defense play. That was probably the most complete game we played all year. Peyton’s a heck of a pitcher. I thought we had really good approaches at the plate on him. That’s the most impressed I’ve been with us all year.” Kissack singled and scored on Justin Vogel’s single in the first. Kissack walked to lead off

the third and scored on Vogel’s double. Ethan Walsweer doubled in Vogel and Klick doubled in Walsweer for a 4-0 lead. “Peyton was leaving the ball up a little today,” Hornets coach Donnie Nolen said. “He was constantly in three-ball counts, and that’s not good for him. We didn’t play the defense we’ve been playing behind him either. The defense has to be perfect when you’re not getting any offense.” Kissack (3-3) finished with 104 pitches and two walks, both in the fifth when Harvard (8-12, 2-8) left the bases loaded.

Tough stretch for Chargers: Dundee-Crown is in the middle of a challenging stretch. Because of weather issues earlier in the season, which forced games to be postponed, the Chargers are playing five games in five days this week – four of which are FVC Valley games. D-C coach Tracy Beatty was well aware that the loaded schedule was approaching and especially prepared her two pitchers, Lauren Girard and Amanda Moore, to be ready to alternate starting games this week. “We’re kind of used to it,” Beatty said. “That’s kind of what the spring brings you. That’s the nature of the beast. We’ll just keep going at it like we can.” Massie back in the circle: After leaving Monday’s game against Prairie Ridge early thanks to a batted ball going off her left knee in the third inning, Crystal Lake South pitcher Hailee Massie wasn’t sidelined long. Although she tried staying in after getting hit, Massie eventually came out, though Gators coach Scott Busam expected her to be fine. Massie shook it off quickly. The junior started Tuesday’s game against Dundee-Crown as South’s designated hitter but was called on in relief. Massie showed no signs of any lingering effects from the batted ball. Massie allowed one hit in three innings and struck out seven while walking one batter to help the Gators hold on for a wild 16-13 win against D-C. Massie also singled, walked and reached twice on an error. Regional seeds released: The IHSA released the regional seeds Tuesday. In Class 4A, at the Cary-Grove Regional, Barrington took the top seed, while C-G is No. 2 and Crystal Lake South is No. 3. Rounding out the regional, Jacobs got the fourth seed and Crystal Lake Central the fifth seed. In the Class 4A McHenry Regional, McHenry was awarded the No. 1 seed, and Prairie Ridge earned the second seed. Huntley and DundeeCrown are the second and fifth seeds, respectively, in the Class 4A Huntley Regional. In Class 3A, Marengo was awarded the top seed in the Woodstock North Regional. Also in that regional, Marian Central will be the second seed and Richmond-Burton the third seed. Rounding out that regional are Woodstock (No. 4) and Woodstock North (No. 5).

WHITE SOX

A ‘new era’ for Sox Pitching coach Cooper sees more life By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN dvanschouwen@suntimes.com OAKLAND, Calif. – The White Sox might not win anything this season, but what’s going on now sure beats what was happening a year ago. Being a .500 team is a goal – a lofty one at that after being 36 games under in 2013 – but at least there is a sense of hope. At least – the uninspired showing this past weekend that got manager Robin Ventura out of his seat notwithstanding – there is a good vibe. “Losing still [stinks], but this year is a whole different ballgame for me, because even when we lose a ballgame, it’s different,” pitching coach Don Cooper said Tuesday before the Sox sent 29-year-old rookie Scott Carroll to the mound to face the Oakland A’s in hopes of halting a three-game losing streak, “We’re doing it with energy, life, grind, enthusiasm, fight, hustle. And we’re younger.” Cooper has had his hands full overseeing a staff that is missing three starters from the opening rotation: Chris Sale, Felipe Paulino (injuries), and Erik Johnson (ineffectiveness). Plus, the bullpen has taken three weeks to get situated. Cooper has a long list of developing pitchers under his watch, which makes his job somewhat different from what he has become accustomed to. The Sox have almost always been built to win now during Cooper’s 12-year career. At least the work environ-

Reddick, Moss homer in A’s win over Sox OAKLAND, Calif. – Brandon Moss homered twice and Drew Pomeranz and three relievers combined on a four-hit shutout as the Oakland Athletics beat the White Sox, 9-0, on Tuesday for their sixth consecutive win. Josh Reddick also homered while Yoenis Cespedes added two hits and scored twice to anchor a shuffled Oakland lineup that had catcher John Jaso batting leadoff for just the fourth time this season.

– Wire report ment, in large part created by players who are not under Cooper’s watch, makes coming to work every day a more pleasant experience. “We were going through some development last season and we were taking it on the chin every day,” Cooper said. “That’s a whole different ballgame. It’s more difficult having young guys and you’re trying to get them experienced and better when you’re taking it on the chin 99 times.” Last year’s dud did set in motion a plan that brought outfielders Adam Eaton and Avisail Garcia in trades and probably raised the urgency to seriously pursue Jose Abreu in free agency. “We lost [proven pitchers] Jake Peavy, Jesse Crain, Matt Thornton, Addison Reed and Hector Santiago to get play-

ers we wanted and I’m all for that,” Cooper said. “We’ve always competed for divisions and championships and then things got stale. We got older, slower and relied on the home run. But now with [hitting coach] Todd [Steverson], and the new guys … Abreu, this guy changes the whole ballgame. This guy got everybody excited in the clubhouse. What a great addition, and he’s making this transition a whole lot nicer. And Eaton. He’s life, he’s energy, he’s trouble for the opponent. “It’s kind of a new era for the White Sox.” Notes: Jose Abreu (sore left ankle) was the designated hitter for the fifth straight game and will likely sit out Wednesday or Friday, allowing for a two-day rest with Thursday’s off day. “There’s nothing structurally that you’re concerned about,” manager Robin Ventura said. Abreu became the seventh player in major-league history to have hit at least 14 homers in his first 40 games when he homered in the ninth inning Monday. • Second baseman Micah Johnson, who was leading the Southern League with a .329 average to go with three homers and 16 RBI, was promoted to Triple-A Charlotte. Johnson, who had 84 stolen bases in the minors last season, has 10 steals in 37 games this year. He ranked third in the league with 68 total bases. Left-handed reliever Nelvin Fuentes (1.06 ERA) was also promoted to Charlotte.

BALTIMORE – Miguel Cabrera hit a three-run homer off Tommy Hunter with two outs in the ninth inning, and the Detroit Tigers, down to their last strike, rallied past the Baltimore Orioles, 4-1, Tuesday night. After being held scoreless on three hits over the first eight innings, the Tigers used a reversed call to win. Detroit was 0-12 when trailing going into the ninth before mounting the improbable comeback. Hunter held a 1-0 lead before giving up a leadoff single to Alex Avila. Pinch-runner Rajai Davis was called out trying to steal, but Detroit manager Brad Ausmus challenged the call and, after looking at the replay, umpires overturned the call. Hunter (1-1) got two straight outs before working the count on Torii Hunter

to 1-2. The at-bat ended in a walk, and Cabrera hit an 0-1 curveball over the center-field wall for his sixth home run. Victor Martinez then hit a shot that landed on Eutaw Street beyond the scoreboard in right field. Justin Miller (1-1) pitched one inning to earn his first big league win and Joe Nathan got three outs for his ninth save. Nathan has seven saves and a 0.00 ERA in his last eight outings. Adam Jones hit a first-inning homer for the Orioles, who have dropped three in a row after a five-game winning streak. Jones has five home runs, four in the last seven games. Baltimore starter Ubaldo Jimenez gave up three hits, walked two and struck out seven in seven innings. After going 0-4 with a 6.59 ERA in April, the right-hander is 2-0 with a 0.46 ERA in May.

CUBS

Baez’s fast track to majors slows By GORDON WITENMYER gwittenmyer@suntimes.com Javy Baez still has the tattoo of the MLB logo on the back of his neck. He got it in high school to tell the world where he was headed. And the Cubs still believe he’s stamped for success in the big leagues. But the front office considered a list of sound reasons for sending him to the minors from big-league camp this spring. His .153 batting average and the highest strikeout rate in the Pacific Coast League through Monday support that decision. “The biggest thing is he’s pressing a little bit, trying to do too much,” said Cubs farm director Jaron Madison, who just took a trip to see Triple-A Iowa and the slugging shortstop. Baez, who got into a dugout altercation with a teammate three games into the season, then suffered an ankle injury, remains a big part of the Cubs’ rebuilding plans. But that imminent call to the big leagues this season doesn’t look so imminent anymore. And for those watching third baseman Kris Bryant’s big start at Double-A Tennessee and salivating over a possible big-league call-up in 2014, the Cubs plan to take their time even considering a promotion to Triple-A.

PH Garcia HBP in 12th sends Cardinals over Cubs ST. LOUIS – Pinch-hitter Greg Garcia was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded and one out in the 12th inning, sending the St. Louis Cardinals over the Cubs, 4-3, on Tuesday night. Jhonny Peralta led off the 12th with a single for his third hit. Justin Grimm (1-2) retired Matt Holliday on a popup, but walks to Allen Craig and Yadier Molina loaded the bases for Garcia. Seth Maness (1-2) tossed a scoreless 12th for the win.

– Wire report As for Baez, some point to his slow start last year. But even then, he was heating up by the end of April. He had as many home runs that month (five) as he has total extra-base hits now. Last year, he was batting about 90 points higher at this point in the season at advanced Single-A Daytona with 16 extra-base hits. Cubs manager Rick Renteria, a former first-round draft pick who had to fight a lot of adversity to reach the majors and eventually carve out a career there, suggested the Triple-A struggles could be good for Baez. “It’s really important for his development because now he’s got to [have] patience,”

Renteria said. “Believe it or not, those are positive things for us at this point. Patience is one of the things he’s going to have to have [in the big leagues].” Patience from the paying public is another matter when it comes to the Cubs’ long rebuilding process built on the backs – and bats – of players such as Baez, the fifthranked prospect according to Baseball America entering the season. “He started off slow, started getting hot, and then got hurt. So he’s still trying to find his rhythm and understand how these guys are going to pitch him at that level,” said Madison, who added that Baez’s work on reigning in his over-aggressiveness was paying off with better at-bats and more consistent hard contact. “It looks like a breakout’s right around the corner,” he said. That aggressiveness was a precursor to the struggles he has faced at Triple-A, where more polished pitchers, often with major-league experience, are better at commanding secondary pitches and expanding young hitters’ strike zones. “When you’re in Double-A you’re facing a lot of guys who go right after you, who are trying to figure out who they are and blow fastballs past guys,” Madison said. “And he can hit a fastball as well as anyone.”

Sterling erases all doubt in latest rant VIEWS Tim Dahlberg

The Wizardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Marcin Gortat points toward his teammates as time expires in Game 5 of an Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Pacers on Tuesday in Indianapolis. Washington won, 102-79.

NBA PLAYOFFS ROUNDUP

Wizards romp; Thunder rally The ASSOCIATED PRESS INDIANAPOLIS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Marcin Gortat had 31 points and 16 rebounds, John Wall scored 27 points, and the Washington Wizards rode a 39-rebound advantage to a 102-79 rout of Indiana on Tuesday night, cutting the Pacersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals to 3-2. Washington can even the series at home Thursday in Game 6. It was a stunning turnaround for a team that had lost the past three. But with Gortat matching a career high in points and posting a playoff career high in rebounds, Washington held a 62-23 rebounding edge. David West scored 17 points for Indiana. Washington used a 15-6 run to take a 45-38 halftime lead, extended the margin to 24 after three and to as much as 30 in the fourth. Washington denied the top-seeded Pacers a spot in the conference finals and improved to 4-2 on the road in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playoffs. They are

just 1-3 at home. After blowing a 19-point, second-half lead in Game 4, Washington didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dare slow down. The Wizards took a 30-point lead in the fourth and Indiana couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even make a serious run to cut into the deficit until coach Frank Vogel pulled his starters midway through the fourth. Thunder 105, Clippers 104: At Oklahoma City, Russell Westbrook scored 38 points and made three free throws with 6.4 seconds remaining, and the Oklahoma City Thunder overcame a seven-point deficit in the final 50 seconds to beat the Los Angeles Clippers and to go up 3-2 in the Western Conference semifinals. Westbrook was fouled by Chris Paul while shooting a 3-pointer with the Thunder trailing by two. After his free throws, Paul drove to the hoop, but Reggie Jackson stole the ball from him, and time expired. Kevin Durant scored 10 of his 27 points in the final 3:23 for the Thunder.

Commissioner Adam Silver barely waited until Anderson Cooper had signed off when he issued an apology for the owner his predecessor should have run out of the NBA years ago. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one more real apology than Donald Sterling has given, and now he has even more to say heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sorry about. It hardly seems possible, but Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bizarre comments about Magic Johnson in the CNN interview with Cooper were almost as despicable as the racist ramblings that prompted Silver to kick him out of the league to begin with. Just what Sterling thought he would gain from going on national TV Monday is anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guess. About all Sterling accomplished was to tighten the noose even more. His wife chalked it up to dementia, which seems as good an explanation as any. Real shame, too, because what a loving couple they seemed to be, sitting courtside with his mistress. If anyone was on the fence about Sterling before, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve hopped off now. If his true character wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t revealed in the racist comments he made in conversations recorded by his girlfriend, it was in his interview with Cooper. He blamed the media for being haters, and said Cooper was probably more of a racist than he is. He also claimed his players love him, something that will surely come as a bit of a surprise in the locker room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a racist â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a racist,â&#x20AC;? Sterling said in one of his more coherent moments. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so coherent when talking about Johnson, one of the black people he criticized his girlfriend for hanging out with. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got AIDS!â&#x20AC;? Sterling blurted out at one point.

AP photo

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald T. Sterling sits with his wife, Rochelle, during a Clippers game in 2010 against the Detroit Pistons in Los Angeles. Actually Johnson doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just one more thing Sterling got wrong. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an old man with old ideas, with no one around who dares to tell him no. His attempt at public rehabilitation was such a train wreck you have to wonder if Sterling is listening to anyone. The best thing for Sterling now is to simply disappear and let his money try to buy him some happiness. He needs to understand that his legacy is now effectively sealed and no amount of apologizing or charitable good works will change it. Unfortunately, people like Sterling donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually go quietly. His wife has already signaled she intends to fight to keep her 50 percent of the team, and Sterling could keep NBA lawyers employed for years should he decide to dig in his heels and try to keep his half. It should have never come to this. Sterling should have been bounced from the league

a long time ago, but for some reason former commissioner David Stern and Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fellow owners decided to overlook earlier questionable behavior, including a ruling that found Sterling discriminated against black tenants. They knew he was a bad apple, and if they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read his sworn testimony in the face of federal charges of civil rights violations. They apparently werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t paying attention when former Lakers great Elgin Baylor sued Sterling for race and age discrimination, saying the owner had a â&#x20AC;&#x153;plantation mentalityâ&#x20AC;? and wanted a team of â&#x20AC;&#x153;poor black boys from the South playing for a white coach.â&#x20AC;? They had to be paying attention Monday night for an interview that was as uncomfortable to watch as most of the Clippers teams Sterling had over the years. Silver was certainly paying attention, apologizing to Johnson

for what was said about him while vowing to continue to move as quickly as possible to get Sterling out. So far, Silver has made all the right moves. He came down hard and fast in banning Sterling from the league, and on Monday installed a CEO to run the team while things get sorted out. But he still needs some cooperation from Sterling and his wife or the fate of the team could be tied up in the courts for a long time. Sterling will have to make that decision, which by itself is troubling. His past record indicates he does not shy away from a fight, and judging by his combative stance with Cooper he may not back away from this one. For now, however, all we can do is hope he simply shuts up. â&#x20AC;˘ Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

Strawberry Lemonade (left) and Rocking Chair Lemonade AP photo

The secrets to a summer full of great homemade lemonade By ELIZABETH KARMEL The Associated Press

H

omemade lemonade is an essential taste of summer. But concentrates and powders simply won’t suffice. Luckily, great homemade lemonade is as easy as remembering a few numbers – 3-1-1-1. Three cups of cold water, 1 cup of lemon juice, 1 cup of sugar and 1 more cup of water to make the sugar syrup. The sugar syrup – also called simple syrup – is the key to perfect homemade lemonade. As anyone who has tried to sweeten ice tea knows, sugar does not dissolve well in cold liquids. But simple syrup – a blend of (typically) equal parts sugar and water that was heated briefly to help the sugar dissolve – mixes beautifully into lemonade, ice tea or cocktails. When shopping for lemons for lemonade, buy large lemons that feel heavy and are squeezable. I am sure that I am

not the only one who has purchased lemons only to cut them and find that half the lemon is rind and there is very little juice. For that reason, I always buy a couple extra. If I think I can get 1 cup of juice from 6 lemons, I buy 8. As soon as I bring them home, I soak the lemons in a solution of white vinegar and water to minimize any molding or rotting. Often, a bag of lemons with one slightly moldy lemon becomes a whole bag of rotten lemons overnight if you don’t do this. And you don’t have to stop at lemons; this is a great way to wash all fruits and vegetables. Before you juice them, soak the lemons in warm water or microwave them for 10 seconds. The heat relaxes the juice pouches and makes it easier to extract the most juice from each lemon. Then, before you cut them in half, roll the lemons on the counter with your palm, exerting some pressure. This also helps get the juices flowing. Once the juice is strained of excess

pulp and seeds, and the simple syrup is cooled, you are ready to mix your lemonade. This can be done up to 2 days in advance. Also, be careful not to add too much water. The lemonade should be slightly concentrated because the ice in the glass will dilute it a bit. For that reason, I never add the ice to the pitcher, only to the glasses. Experiment with making this same basic recipe with limes, Meyer lemons and oranges, scaling back on the simple syrup based on the sweetness of the fruit. And once you master the base recipe, you are ready to try variations. My favorite is strawberry lemonade, but don’t stop there. Try any summer berry, honeydew melon, peaches and summer herbs. I use the rule of thumb that 2 cups of ripe fruit should yield more or less a cup of juice once it is strained. I use my juicer, but you can use a blender and a fine mesh strainer just as easily.

Keith owns a chain of restaurants named after his 2003 hit “I Love This Bar” that can be found in more than a dozen cities from Foxborough, Massachusetts, to Oxnard, California. Chart-topping artist Dierks Bentley opened Whiskey Row in Scottsdale, Arizona, featuring craft beer, organic ingredients and a 360-degree stage for music acts. In September, Nashville, Tennessee, will host its second annual Music City Food and Wine Festival. Created by Grammy Award-winning artists Caleb and Nathan Followill of Kings of Leon and chef Jonathan Waxman, a pioneer of American regional cuisine, the festival features national and regional chefs and music. “We wanted a closely curated festival that featured national chefs to draw attention, but it was about the town of Nashville and about the regional area,” Waxman says. “We’re talking Alabama, Louisiana, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia... That area of the world has just grown up culinary-wise.” Waxman and others point to the upscaling of Southern food that has occurred as locals schooled in famous urban kitchens return to the area. Cities such as Nashville, Birmingham, Alabama, Athens, Georgia, and even little places like Kinston, North Carolina have welcomed home young chefs who win

Nashville alone had three James Beard nominees in 2014, including Nate Appleman protege Tandy Wilson. “People used to flock to Nashville for the Ryman,” Southern Living’s Lewis says about the theater known as the “Mother Church of Country Music.” ‘’Now they’re flocking to Nashville to eat Tandy Wilson’s food.” Many people close to the scene also credit the success of the foodcountry music pairing to the food itself and the stars who cook it. The food is unfussy, comfy, homey. A can or two of condensed soup is not unheard of. Such dishes hardly conjure the image of effete “foodies” that might otherwise repel this down-to-earth audience. And they mirror the authentic image of the stars themselves. “Most people identify with country artists as someone they can invite to dinner and sit down and have a meal with themselves,” says Amanda Phillips, vice president of Consumer Marketing at Country Music Television, which offers a food-and-a-movie format show. “There’s a familiarity and connection with the stars that’s really accessible.

A Dear Abby dinner party Outsmarting your anger blends good food and fun will be good for your health

I’m glad to oblige. I have been a compulsive cookbook collector for many years, so I can relate. (I’m sure you will be pleased when you see my cookbooklets, while wide-ranging in content, take up little space on your bookshelf.) Your idea of throwing a Dear Abby dinner party is a good one, and I have been

told the recipes provide a fun, traditional eating adventure. All of them are simple, easy-to-read and delicious. One reader described creating place cards for her guests decorated with hearts and flowers. The centerpiece was a “bouquet” of envelopes addressed to me. Another reader said she copied questions from my column, printed them out and, as a party game, asked her guests to supply the answers. (She said after a few glasses of wine, some of the responses were hilarious, but couldn’t be printed in a family newspaper.) My cookbooklet set contains more than 100 recipes, ranging from soups to salads, appetizers, main courses and desserts, that can be used when families get together to celebrate holidays and other

special occasions. My mother used many of them when she hosted parties, as have I. To order, send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $14 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby – Cookbooklet Set, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 610540447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. You will find tips on entertaining at the beginning of the first booklet. Anyone who hasn’t entertained before should be sure to read them. By following these suggestions, even the most nervous, first-time host can be confident. I know you will enjoy the recipes as much as we have, and serve them with pride. Thought for the Day: It’s not what you put on the table, but who you put in the chairs that makes a successful dinner party. • Write Dear Abby at www.

dearabby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Dear Dr. K: What can I do to calm myself when I’m angry? Dear Reader: Anger often is called “the fire inside.” It is one of our most powerful and primal human emotions. But in the modern world, anger can get in the way of our work and social interactions. In his book, “Outsmarting Anger,” my Harvard Medical School colleague, Dr. Joseph Shrand, and Leigh Devine explain how to recognize and manage your anger. Anger stems from the limbic system, one of the more primitive parts of our brain. By “primitive,” I mean that many animals have a limbic system – even lizards. Our ability to process and tame anger comes from a more recently evolved section of the brain called the prefrontal cortex. It’s difficult to control the anger you feel – but you can control whether and how you act on it. “Outsmarting Anger” explains how to recognize, listen to and think about your

ASK DR. K Anthony Komaroff anger. The key is in this shift from feeling to thinking: turning down the limbic system and turning up the prefrontal cortex. A simple exercise that can help you begin to control your anger is to construct a personal anger scale. First, write down 10 words that describe escalating intensities of anger, such as “irritation,” “frustration” and “rage.” Assign each word a number from 1 to 10 (10 being the angriest). Now, write down some things that trigger your anger. Give each item a word and number from your anger scale. For example: • Slow Internet connection (irritation, 1) • Rude service at a restaurant (frustration, 3) • A driver who cuts you off (rage, 8)

Once you’ve classified your level of anger, think your way through it. What needs to change for your anger to downshift from a 5 to a 3? Would it help to talk to someone you trust? To write down your feelings rather than expressing them in the heat of the moment? Finally, consider regular exercise and meditation. Both can help you feel more relaxed, allowing your prefrontal cortex, or “anger management center,” to operate most effectively. In the past 20 years, we’ve learned our anger doesn’t just make us difficult to live with and do stupid and self-defeating things. It also breeds heart disease – particularly sudden death. That’s another good reason to learn how to “outsmart” your anger. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at www.askdoctork.com or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

Dinner in 25 minutes: Vietnamese Rice Noodle Salad 1/2 cup roasted, salted peanuts, for garnish

By BONNIE S. BENWICK

Vietnamese Rice Noodle Salad

Special to The Washington Post Molly Wizenberg weaves recipes into her new book, “Delancey,” which chronicles the startup of her relationship with husband Brandon Pettit and Delancey, their Seattle pizza restaurant. For this dish, inspired by the takeout food the couple loves, we saved time by shopping the salad bar for the prepped vegetables and pieces of store-roasted turkey breast.

For the dressing: 1 or 2 limes 1 medium clove garlic 3 tablespoons fish sauce 2 to 3 tablespoons light brown sugar 6 to 8 tablespoons water Pinch crushed red pepper flakes

Vietnamese Rice Noodle Salad

For the salad: Lay a clean dish towel on the counter. Bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the noodles and wait for 1 minute before stirring to separate them. Cook for about 3 minutes; the noodles need to be tender but not mushy. Drain, then immediately dump the noodles onto the towel, separating them from each other. For the salad: Meanwhile, make the dressing: Squeeze the juice of the lime(s) – 8 ounces dried rice noodles (pad Thai/linguine width) enough to yield 3 tablespoons – into a small bowl. Mince the garlic and Handful mixed fresh herbs, such as basil, cilantro and mint 6 to 8 ounces cooked meat add it to the bowl, along with the fish sauce, brown sugar (to taste), water 2 ounces shredded/matchstick-cut carrot (May substitute 1 (as needed) and crushed red pepper flakes. medium carrot, scrubbed and shredded) Coarsely chop or tear the herb leaves. Tear the turkey into bite-size 2 cups shredded cabbage, preferably Napa (May substitute 3 or pieces and arrange on a platter, along with the herbs, carrot, cabbage and 4 Napa cabbage leaves, very thinly sliced) 4 ounces sliced cucumber (May substitute 1/2 cucumber, seeded cucumber. Arrange the noodles on the platter; drizzle with a few spoonfuls of the and thinly sliced)

The steering wheel and ignition switch on a 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt in Alexandria, Va. General Motors’ recent recall of 2.6 million small cars has shed light on an unsettling fact: Air bags might not always deploy when drivers – and federal regulators – expect them to.

Complex questions GM recall reveals gaps in air bag knowledge By DEE-ANN DURBIN The Associated Press General Motors’ recall of 2.6 million small cars has shed light on an unsettling fact: Air bags might not always deploy when drivers – and federal regulators – expect them to. Thirteen people have died in crashes involving older GM cars with defective ignition switches. In each of those crashes, and in others in which occupants were injured, the air bags failed to deploy even after striking trees, guard rails or other objects. Puzzled by these failures, federal safety regulators told Congress last month they believed the cars’ air bags should have worked for up to 60 seconds after the engine stalled. But GM since has told The Associated Press that regulators were mistaken: the cars only had enough reserve power to sense a crash and deploy the air bags for 150 milliseconds after the switch malfunctioned and cut off the car’s power. The National Highway Traffic Safety Agency is now scrambling to find out from other automakers and air bag suppliers how their air bags would function in similar situations. Regulators, lawmakers and ordinary drivers are learning what auto engineers already know: These billowing white bags are actually very complex. After a crash, a car’s computer determines, in 15 to 20 milliseconds, where it was hit, what position the occupants are in and whether the 150-mile-per-hour speed of the air bag would do more harm than good. Then it deploys – or doesn’t. Every automaker programs them differently. “It’s very complicated, the logic behind it. It makes it very, very difficult for an automaker or supplier to

Police investigate the wreckage of a 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt that crashed in 2006 in St. Croix County, killing Natasha Weigel, 18, and Amy Lynn Rademaker, 15, and injuring the 17-year-old driver, Megan Ungar-Kerns. The vehicle’s ignition was found in the “accessory” position and the air bags didn’t deploy. explain why it did or didn’t go off in a certain situation,” said Joe Nolan, senior vice president for vehicle research at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a group funded by the insurance industry that performs crash tests and other research. If an occupant is unbelted or very small, or the car is traveling very slowly, the air bag may not deploy because it could cause even more severe injuries. Depending on the angle, the side air bags may deploy but not the front ones. If a car is parked and turned off when it’s hit, the air bags won’t work. GM’s switches created an unusual problem. Because of insufficient resistance, they moved from the “run”

position into the “accessory” or “off” position while the car was moving, possibly due to a bump from the driver’s knee or the weight of a key chain. With the switch in that position, the engine stalled and the power steering and power brakes stopped working, making the car harder to control. In a 2006 crash in Wisconsin, a Chevrolet Cobalt traveling at 71 mph suddenly stalled. Two seconds later – outside GM’s 150-millisecond window – it hit a clump of trees. The ignition was found in the “accessory” position and the air bags didn’t deploy. Two passengers died and the driver was severely injured.

ST. LOUIS – Corn growers in Illinois and elsewhere are putting their spring planting into high gear, more than making up for a soggy slow start. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says 78 percent of Illinois’ corn crop is now in the ground. That’s 25 percentage points above the average pace of the previous five years. And it dwarfs the 16-percent pace of last year, when one of the wettest springs on record got farmers in many states off to the slowest start in decades. Nationwide, 59 percent of the corn crop is planted, in line with the five-year average. Missouri growers have 86 percent of their corn crop in the ground. Iowa, the nation’s corn king, has 70 percent of the crop planted, mirroring its five-year average.

WASHINGTON – U.S. businesses increased their stockpiles in March, and sales increased by the largest amount in 10 months. Stockpiles rose 0.4 percent after a 0.5 percent rise in February, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. Sales in March jumped 1 percent, the largest advance since May, after a 0.9 percent increase in February. Both months represented a solid rebound after a 0.9 percent sales decline in January that was blamed in part on the harsh winter weather. The two months of sizable gains in sales should encourage businesses to keep restocking to meet rising demand. That would mean increased orders to factories and rising production, which would lead to stronger economic growth. Many economists expect growth to rebound significantly in the second quarter after slowing sharply in the first. Inventories held by wholesalers increased 1.1 percent in March, while those held by manufacturers edged up a tiny 0.1 percent. Inventories at the retail level were unchanged.

Retail sales rise a scant 0.1 percent in April WASHINGTON – U.S. retail sales growth slowed in April, with consumers shopping less online and cutting back on purchases of furniture and electronics. Seasonally adjusted retail sales rose just 0.1 percent last month, after surging 1.5 percent in March following a harsh winter that had curtailed shopping, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. Several economists said the April figures might have been depressed because of seasonal adjustments connected to a later than usual Easter. Still, the modest sales suggest that consumers may remain cautious during the still-slow economic recovery. Higher sales would help drive faster growth because consumers account for about 70 percent of the economy. Auto sales increased 0.6 percent in April, and purchases at clothing stores were up 1.2 percent. But most of those gains were offset by declines in spending at restaurants, online retailers and furniture and electronics stores. Excluding autos and gasoline, retail sales fell 0.1 percent last month. Wages have not budged much

Savings account not best way to pay college bills Another school year is drawing to a close. If you have young children, you might be planning for their summer activities. But you also might want to look even farther into the future – to the day when your kids say “goodbye” to local schools and “hello” to college dormitories. When that day arrives, will you be financially prepared to pay for the high costs of higher education? Consider this: For the 2013-14 academic year, the average cost (tuition, fees, room and board) was $18,391 for an in-state student at a four-year public college or university, and $40,917 for a private school, according to the College Board. And these costs may be considerably higher by the time your children enter college. Of course, these are just the “sticker” prices; some families pay less, thanks to grants and tax benefits, such as the American Opportunity Tax Credit and the Lifetime

FINANCE Steve Middaugh Learning Tax Credit. Still, you may encounter some hefty college bills down the road. But college is still a good investment in your child’s future. Over an adult’s working life, an individual with a bachelor’s degree can expect to earn, on average, nearly $1 million more than someone with only a high school diploma, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. So you’re saving for a good cause. Unfortunately, you may not be saving enough – or you might not be making the most of your savings. To save for college, more parents use a general savings account than any other method, according to Sallie Mae’s How America Saves for College 2014 study. These types of accounts carry two significant drawbacks: They typi-

cally earn tiny returns and they offer no tax advantages. However, you do have some attractive college-funding vehicles available, one of which is a 529 plan. Your 529 plan earnings accumulate tax free, provided they are used for qualified higher-education expenses. (529 plan distributions not used for qualified expenses may be subject to federal and state income tax and a 10 percent IRS penalty.) Furthermore, your 529 plan contributions may be deductible from your state taxes. But 529 plans vary, so be sure to check with your tax adviser regarding deductibility. A 529 plan offers other benefits, too. For one thing, the lifetime contribution limits for 529 plans are quite generous; while these limits vary by state, some plans allow contributions well in excess of $200,000. And a 529 plan is flexible: If your child decides against college or vocational school, you can transfer the unused funds to another family

member, tax and penalty free. While a 529 plan is a popular choice for college savings, it is not the only option available. You also might want to consider a Coverdell Education Savings Account, which, like a 529 plan, can generate tax-free earnings if the money is used for higher-education expenses. You can typically only put in a maximum of $2,000 per year to a Coverdell account, but it does offer more flexibility in investment choices than a 529 plan. Your children may be young today, but, before you know it, they’ll be packing their bags for college. So, no matter which college savings vehicles you choose, put them to work soon.

NHTSA talking to car Hiring has been strong in past 3 months RETAIL SALES makers about air bags •Continued from page E1 • GM RECALL Continued from page E1 GM says the air bags in newer cars would work for a slightly longer period of time if the ignition is off, but still less than a second. If the engine had stalled while the ignition was still in the “run” position, the crash might have had a different outcome. In that situation, the air bags, steering, brakes and most other equipment would have had power for up to several hours depending on the amount of charge in the car’s battery, GM said. A report on the crash, completed by a team from Indiana University that was hired by the government, said the air bags may not have deployed because the ignition moved out of position. But the report also noted two other reasons: The trees bent when the car hit them, so the impact may not have triggered the air bags. And none of the occupants was wearing a seat belt. Air

bags are meant to supplement seat belts, not to replace them. The report said further analysis would be necessary to figure out whether the air bags could go off if the ignition was in the “accessory” position. Seven years later, that analysis is finally being done. In a statement to the AP, the National Highway Traffic Safety Agency said it is talking to car companies and air bag suppliers about how air bag performance relates to the position of the ignition. The agency says it will take “appropriate action” based on its findings. It didn’t specify what form that action could take, but the agency could make new rules governing how long air bags must work if power to the vehicle is cut. Now, federal regulations don’t govern when air bags must deploy or how much power they need. Automakers are only required to meet government standards for protection of dummies in a series of crash tests.

and economic indicators since then have pointed to stronger growth in the current April-June quarter. Many economists are looking for a rebound to an annual growth rate of around 3 percent in the current quarter and similarly solid readings for the rest of the year. Hiring has been strong for the past three months. Employers added 288,000 jobs in April, after gains of more than 200,000 in the previous two

months. Average wages were flat in April, although each new job is providing another paycheck to be spent. “At the end of the day, it is all about one’s job, and job security,” Jennifer Lee, a senior economist at BMO Capital Markets, said in a research note. “A job is a job and that will help determine the ability for one to consume. And the U.S. labor market is improving steadily, which will support consumer spending.” The unusually late Easter might have caused some sales in April to be shifted into March because of seasonal

adjustments. That would indicate that consumer demand is stronger than suggested by April’s retail sales report. “History shows clearly that the seasonal adjustments can’t cope with very late Easters, which tend to boost reported March sales at the expense of April,” said Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics. The economy’s slow but steady improvement has led the Federal Reserve to trim its monthly bond purchases. The Fed is buying $45 billion of bonds each month, down from $85 billion.

airline traffic across the nation. But airlines are also quicker to cancel flights these days, sometimes a day in advance of a storm. The shift in strategy came in response to new government regulations, improvements to overall operations and because canceling quickly reduces expenses. In May 2010, a new DOT rule took effect prohibiting airlines from keeping passengers on the tarmac for three hours or more. So, airlines now choose to

cancel blocks of flights to avoid potential fines of up to $27,500 per passenger or $4.1 million for a typical plane holding 150 fliers. Making things worse for travelers, airlines have been cutting unprofitable flights and packing more passengers into planes. When flights get canceled there isn’t anywhere to put the stranded passengers; some end up waiting days to secure a seat on another flight.

8IN BRIEF Flight cancellations were a record this winter NEW YORK – This winter was the worst for fliers in the 20 years that the government has been collecting data. During the first three months of this year, U.S. airlines canceled 4.6 percent of their flights, the Department of Transportation announced Tuesday. Mother Nature is mostly to blame, with a relentless wave of snow and ice storms paralyzing

Paul Valery, a French poet, essayist and philosopher who died in 1945, said, “Every thought is an exception to the general rule that people don’t think.” Perhaps the primary reason that bridge has remained so popular is that there always seem to be exceptions to the “rules” of the game. When taking a inesse you wish to repeat, often you lead the lowest card that can hold the trick if the inesse is winning. Then you can immediately repeat it. But that is not always the case. In this deal, South is in four spades. West leads a low diamond. East takes the trick with his 10 and returns a low diamond. After rufing, how should declarer continue? South might have immediately overcalled four spades, but wondered about a slam. West made a negative double, promising four hearts. East’s double was for takeout; it was a tad aggressive, but the singleton spade improved his hand’s value. South must hold his losers to one in each side suit. Since West has a club honor, this

requires taking two club inesses and leading toward the heart king. So, declarer seems to need three dummy entries, but he has only two: the spade jack and ace. However, he can do it if he is thoughtful. South draws trumps ending in the dummy. Then comes the key play: He must lead the club two and play his jack. West wins and leads another diamond. Declarer ruffs, crosses to dummy with a spade, and runs the club nine. Still in the dummy, he can then lead a heart up to his king -- mission accomplished.

CROSSWORD

HOROSCOPE

! !

TODAY - Do a little soul-searching this year. You may have been limiting your prospects by relying too much on other people. Assert your independence. Take a tally of your achievements, accomplishments and ideas, and weed out anything that could inhibit your success. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have a reputation as being steadfast and dependable, but you should let your hair down more often and show your fun side. Romance and intimacy are in the stars. Take a chance on love. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Make a contribution to a cause you believe in or a job that interests you. Your colleagues will be grateful, and favors will come your way when you need help in turn. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your charm and poise will make you stand out in a crowd. Social events or ceremonies will expose you to potential companions if you are looking for love. Enjoy the attention. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Family problems are imminent. Keep your cool. Follow through on promises you’ve made in order to make a good impression and be kept in the loop. Actions will speak louder than words. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don’t confine your activities to a set routine. Sign up for an unconventional experience. Consider trying an exotic cooking or dance class, or learning a new language. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Liven up your surroundings. You will feel proud and fulfilled if you do the work yourself. To avoid pitfalls or opposition, you should be secretive about workplace events. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Don’t put your social life on the back burner. Get out and laugh a little. Join a group that will let you show the lighter side of your personality. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You’re missing an important piece of the puzzle. Someone has misled you. You may have to take a roundabout route to get the answers you need. Proceed with caution. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A needy family member will be very demanding. Don’t give too much of your time, energy or budget. You shouldn’t feel the need to finance someone else’s mistakes. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Scrutinize your own behavior before lashing out at someone else. Don’t start something you can’t finish or that could lead to conflict and regret. Look for positive options. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Fight off fatigue and lethargy. Don’t let depression or disinterest stand between you and an exciting event that could jump-star your vitality. The first step is the hardest. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are spreading yourself too thin. Be more selective in your choices.

BLACKHAWKS 2

GAME 6

WILD 1 (OT)

HAWKS WIN SERIES, 4-2

THEY’LL TAKE IT Kane wasn’t sure he scored series-clinching goal By MARK LAZERUS mlazerus@suntimes.com ST. PAUL, Minn. – Patrick Kane has done this before, you know. Hostile crowd at a fever pitch, overtime, series on the line – then a shot, then mass confusion, then utter silence and despair in the arena, pierced only by the jubilant shouts of a couple dozen visitors. Only this time, even Kane didn’t know he had scored. So there was no “heartbreaker” punch. No “King of the World” bearhug. No “Showtime” shout. Just an uncertain look over his shoulder, a Patrick Sharp just-in-case rebound, and then a moderate – by Blackhawks standards, at least – on-ice celebration. “It was a weird feeling tonight, because at first you didn’t know if it was in,” Kane said after his overtime goal beat the Minnesota Wild, 2-1, in Game 6 on Tuesday night to send the Hawks into the Western Conference final. “The first one, against Philly (to win the 2010 Stanley Cup), I knew it was in. Tonight, I didn’t really know. But when you turn around and you see the puck in the net, anyway, it’s a good feeling. It was exciting.” After spending all night on their heels, dominated in every facet but the scoreboard, the Hawks won on what Kane called a “wacky bounce.” Brent Seabrook rimmed the puck in from the red line along the boards, but the puck took a funky kick off the back boards and came right to Kane, who roofed it over Ilya Bryzgalov’s head. The puck hit the top of the inside of the net and bounced out to create the confusion, and Sharp smacked it back in for good measure.

Hawks’ quick hits WHAT WORKED • Last line of defense As good as goalie Corey Crawford was, the Hawks’ defense was lights out, coming to Crawford’s rescue on more than one occasion. Peter Regin and Sheldon Brookbank both saved would-be goals and the Hawks blocked 21 shots as a team – including five from Brent Seabrook, keeping the Wild from taking a lead. • Penalty killers The Hawks continued to get the job done while playing down a skater. The PK unit went 3-for-3 in regulation and withstood a pair of third-period challenges to make up for the Hawks’ lack of offense over the 58 minutes of regulation. • Nothing but net Despite getting next to no offensive support, Crawford carried the Hawks, making 34 saves as the Wild were routinely more aggressive offensively than the Hawks throughout the night. Crawford had a handful of dramatic saves and was also able to limit second-shot opportunities. WHAT DIDN’T WORK

AP photo

The Blackhawks’ Patrick Kane (third from left), Patrick Sharp (10) and Johnny Oduya (27) watch the replay of Kane’s game-winning goal as Jonathan Toews (19) greets goalie Corey Crawford after the Hawks beat the Wild, 2-1, in overtime Tuesday night in St. Paul, Minn. It was the third time Kane has ended a series with an overtime winner. Now the Hawks will get at least a couple of days off before facing either the Los Angeles Kings or the Anaheim Ducks. Anaheim leads that series 3-2, with Game 6 Wednesday in Los Angeles. The Hawks would have home-ice against the Kings, but not against the Ducks. By all rights, the Wild should have won this one in regulation. They had the speed, they had the strength, they had the hustle, they had

the work ethic, they had the aggression. And they had chance after chance after chance. But they didn’t have Corey Crawford. Nor did they have Kane. Nor did they have the Hawks’ remarkable knack for closing out series – they’re now 8-0 in Game 6s in their modern era when they can win a series, including 6-0 on the road. “We just have that confidence going into overtime,” Crawford said. “We felt like we were going to get it done.” Crawford was the only rea-

son the Hawks even made it to overtime. After Kris Versteeg scored early in the first (on another fluky play from behind the goal) and Erik Haula tied it early in the second on a breakaway, the game turned into a track meet, a breathless barrage of golden scoring chances. Just like in the second period of Game 6 against St. Louis, when the Blues outshot the Hawks 17-3, Crawford bailed his team out, making 14 stops in the second period and 34 in the game. Unlike against St. Louis, Crawford had to keep

doing it in the third. “I’m sure he wasn’t the happiest with us, the way we were playing in front of him,” Kane said. “But he did what he does. He’s a great goaltender, and we feel he’s the best in the league for that reason.” Crawford made just enough big stops, and dodged just enough bullets, to get the game to overtime. And that’s where Kane did what he does. Now, after two grueling and difficult series in which they didn’t necessarily play their best for long stretches, the Hawks are halfway home.

It’s about time Crawford got some credit ST. PAUL, Minn. – Corey Crawford could throw his body in front of a bullet, and somebody would question his glove hand. That’s how it is for the guy, who might be the best most-abused goalie in the NHL. There is no Most Valuable Abused Goalie Award, but maybe there should be. Throughout his career, he has had to fight off pucks from opponents and silly criticism from Blackhawks fans. I bring this up for what feels like the 100th time because Crawford was spectacular in the Hawks’ 2-1 overtime victory Tuesday in Game 6 against the Minnesota Wild that clinched the second-round series 4-2 and sent them to the Western Conference finals. He stopped 34 of the 35 shots he faced, keeping the Hawks in the game long enough for Patrick Kane to score the winning goal at 9:40 of the extra period. He was so good in Game 6 – and he has been so good for the Hawks the last two seasons – that another defense is in order. By all rights, he shouldn’t need any defense at all. His 2013 Stanley Cup ring would seem to

VIEWS Rick Morrissey be a filibuster. Tuesday works pretty well, too. Crawford stopped Justin Fontaine twice late in a wild second period with reactions that can’t be taught. It’s one thing to see the puck; it’s another to have the quickness and limberness to stop it. Crawford had all of that. He was great in a huge game. That doesn’t get said enough about Crawford. Too often, his skills are the debate of the day and shouldn’t be. People are too busy waiting for him to fail. Why? Sometimes I think it has to do with his earnest, thoughtful interview answers. You apparently don’t want the fate of your team resting on that kind of guy. Well, tell Fontaine that. He had an earlier breakaway that Crawford also stopped. Crawford and Wild goalie Ilya Bryzgalov stopped breakaways in a matter of seconds in the second period, Bryzgalov on Patrick Sharp and

Crawford on Fontaine. It was good stuff for hockey fans. The Hawks led 1-0 after one period, thanks to an unassisted goal by Kris Versteeg and . . . actually, I’m not sure how the Hawks led after one period. The Wild dominated the puck and had several prime scoring opportunities. There was one stretch in which the Hawks couldn’t get the puck out of their zone, and the Wild missed chance after chance. The only thing between the Hawks and a 3-1 deficit was Crawford. But he can do only so much, and if the Hawks were going to continue to play with fire, they were going to burned. Sure enough, it happened early in the second, when Erik Haula took a pass from Matt Cooke off the boards and scored on a breakaway. Tie game. The Twitterverse predictably lit up with Crawford abuse. During the first five games, the Wild didn’t bring out the worst in the Hawks in this series; they brought out the shrugs in the Hawks. This is a team that needs to be challenged. They’re like the gifted student who needs stimulation, not rote learning. They got it in Game 6.

HAVE YOU CALLED US YET????

It was a far cry from the Wild’s typical goal of keeping the puck along the boards and away from the middle of the ice. That’s a style that bored the Hawks to tears in this series. That’s not an excuse. It could be seen as an indictment of the Hawks. They need to be able to play different styles if they want to win the Cup again. They know this. They just hadn’t done it consistently this series. I watched Game 6 of the Montreal Canadiens-Boston Bruins series Monday. I watched it longingly. Players rushing up and down the ice. Wide-open hockey perfectly suited for an athletic, skilled team. And perfectly suited for viewers who prefer that their hockey not look like a walk through a foot of snow. The third period went like the other two periods had gone Tuesday, with Crawford standing tall under intense pressure from the Wild. Anybody want to give him some credit? • Rick Morrissey is a Chicago Sun-Times sports columnist who can be reached at rmorrissey@suntimes. com.

• Silencing Act After Kris Versteeg scored a dirty goal just 1:58 into the first period, the Hawks couldn’t build on it and take the Xcel Center crowd out of the equation. Following up on the 1-0 advantage would have likely been enough for Crawford. • Winning the foot race The Hawks wanted an up-tempo game the Wild, desperate to stave off elimination, gave it to them. But it was the Wild, who finished with 35 shots on goal, that ended up with a flurry of fast-paced scoring chances only to be denied by Crawford. • Offensive Opportunity The Hawks have repeated how difficult it is to generate scoring chances against the Wild. But for the third straight time in the XCel Center, the Hawks failed to pressure Wild goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, managing only 22 shots on goal in regulation before firing five in overtime. STARS OF THE GAME • Corey Crawford Crawford was easily the only reason why the Wild couldn’t finish the Hawks off in regulation, stonewalling the Wild for much of the night. • Patrick Kane Kane was relatively quiet before overtime when he got a fortuitous bounce off the boards and finished off the Wild with the game- and series-winner. • Kris Versteeg Less than a week out of coach Joel Quenneville’s doghouse, Versteeg gave the Hawks an early 1-0 lead by putting a shot on net and using a lucky bounce to find the back of the net.

IT COMES DOWN TO COACHING

Wild fans chanting “Crawford, Crawford.” Easier than “Bryzgalov, Bryzgalov,” I guess. #Blackhawks @ChrisKuc

By MARK POTASH mpotash@suntimes.com ST. PAUL, Minn. – Joel Quenneville didn’t win 706 regular-season games and two Stanley Cup championships by biting the heads of chickens. He motivates the old-fashioned way: by coaching. “I’m not a very frilly guy with motivational speeches,” the Blackhawks coach said Tuesday before Game 6 of the Western Conference second-round series against the Minnesota Wild. “I might have tried one of those [in the past], and I probably blew it.” When it comes to demonstrative and vocal motivation, Quenneville counts on his players to provide the emotional lift needed to respond to challenging situations. “[We leave it to the players] to get each other excited and provide encouragement or discipline or togetherness,” said Quenneville, who came into Game 6 with 801 total victories. “That’s all part of the process. But as a coach, it’s about the players, letting them go, and let’s go.” The Hawks rely on their talent, depth and experience in tough times, but in a series that has been a taffy pull from start to finish, coaching makes a bigger difference. Quenneville and Wild coach Mike Yeo have been engaged in a game of chess this series, with the home team winning each matchup going into Game 6 on Tuesday night at Xcel Energy Center. “Coaches are always a factor in the playoffs, especially the longer a series goes,” Hawks forward Patrick Sharp said. “There are more adjustments to be made. There are different matchups to look for, and Joel’s got to be one of the best at putting lines together and finding different match-

Oduya knows that one was on him. His head is still shaking. #Blackhawks @sbd787, Stephen Di Benedetto Parise said the other day this arena’s so loud, you can’t even hear offside whistles.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville reacts to a call during Game 5 of a second-round playoff series against the Minnesota Wild on Sunday at the United Center. ups throughout the course of a series. We’re lucky to have him on our side.” Establishing a line to combat the Wild’s rope-a-dope defensive strategy has been particularly challenging for Quenneville. He appeared to find an answer when he re-established a top line of Sharp, Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa in the second period of

Game 5. But that was at home. Taking advantage of that productive line was more difficult on the road, where Yeo had last change after whistles and could match up better. That’s the difficulty of the playoffs. Just because you pushed the right buttons in one game doesn’t mean you’ll push the right ones in the next. “It’s an ongoing thing. Ev-

ery game’s different,” Quenneville said. “We’re not worried about the right and wrong ones. We push ‘em because we want to do something different and we don’t like the way things are going. ... “It’s not going to come down to that. It’s going to come down to will and fighting for pucks at the net and second opportunities.”

I think @XcelEnergyCtr just piped in more donut smell to try to distract the #Blackhawks. Pretty sneaky. @MarkLazerus CROWMG. @SarahSpain CRAWFERT LOOKS LIKE EDDIE DA EAGLE OUT DERE!!! @ChicagoTough, ChicagoTough

NHL PLAYOFFS: RANGERS 2, PENGUINS 1 – RANGERS WIN SERIES, 4-3

New York caps comeback in Game 7 The ASSOCIATED PRESS PITTSBURGH – New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault had trouble finding the words to describe goaltender Henrik Lundqvist. “He’s OK,” Vigneault said finally with a small shake of his head. Except that is, in Game 7s. In Game 7s, Lundqvist is unbeatable. And so are the Rangers. Frustrating Sidney Crosby and the reeling Pittsburgh Penguins one final time, Lundqvist made 35 saves to lift New York to a 2-1 win on Tuesday night and give his resilient team an unlikely spot in the Eastern Conference finals. “I was so tired at the end,”

Lundqvist said after setting an NHL record with his fifth straight Game 7 triumph. “But it was just a great feeling when you know it’s a done deal and we did it.” Brian Boyle and Brad Richards scored for New York, which rallied from a 3-1 series deficit for the first time in the franchise’s 88-year history. The Rangers did it behind Lundqvist, who stopped 102 of the final 105 shots he faced over the final three games as New York advanced to the conference finals for the second time in three years. The three-time All-Star is 10-2 when facing elimination. He was at his best during a mad scramble in front of the Rangers’ net with just over 5 minutes left, when he turned

aside three shots from three different angles in a matter of seconds to preserve a one-goal lead. “He was OK with guys being on top of him as long as we didn’t take penalties,” New York defenseman Ryan McDonagh said. “He fought through screens, fought for loose pucks. He was incredible.” The Rangers will play the winner of the Bruins-Canadiens series in the conference finals. That series is tied 3-3 and Game 7 is Wednesday night in Boston. Jussi Jokinen scored his team-high seventh goal of the postseason for the Penguins. Marc-Andre Fleury made 18 saves for the Penguins, who outshot New York 36-20, but

were outscored 10-3 over the final three games. Pittsburgh fell to 2-7 all time at home in Game 7s, including three such losses in the past five seasons. This one might have been the most painful for the core of Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and coach Dan Bylsma that seemed pointed toward a dynasty after winning the 2009 Stanley Cup. Crosby, who led the league in scoring and is an MVP finalist, managed just one goal in 13 playoffs games. Just as importantly, five springs have now come and gone without Pittsburgh getting a Cup to bookend the one AP photo they hoisted that giddy night New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist (right) leaps as time runs in Detroit and changes could out in Game 7 of a second-round playoff series Tuesday against the be on the way. Penguins in Pittsburgh. The Rangers won, 2-1, and won the series, 4-3.
