Proposed RTA bill advances Aims to increase oversight of mass-transit agencies By KEVIN P. CRAVER
On the Web
email@example.com Another bill aimed at bringing reform and accountability to Chicago’s mass-transit agencies in the wake of high-profile scandals at Metra is headed toward becoming law. Senate Bill 3056, which cleared the House on a 113-0 vote last week, seeks to return more financial oversight power to the Regional Transportation Authority, which is the umbrella board for Metra, Pace and the Chicago Transit Authority. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Daniel Biss, D-Evanston, also requires the boards to create an online portal similar to state government’s, so taxpayers can examine its expenditures and contracts for themselves. State Rep. Mike Tryon,

Cary awaiting word on grant application Village officials seeking funds for project at flood-prone intersection By JOSEPH BUSTOS firstname.lastname@example.org CARY – An answer as to whether the village receives federal money to help with storm water drainage at Sunset and Crest drives could be two months away. Village Administrator Chris Clark said the village has received written notification from the Federal Emergency Management Agency that a final response should come in July or August in regards to its grant application. Clark said the village had to answer some questions from FEMA, which is doing its normal auditing of a grant application. “That’s the first response we’ve heard officially since Christmas,” Clark said. “We’re optimistic and moving

forward quickly.” Residents at the flood-prone intersection have been asking the village to help fix drainage issues that arise whenever there is a bad downpour in the area. There have been multiple flooding events since 2007 and water tends to rush down into the lower levels of houses. The preliminary estimate for the project is $1.1 million, which includes buying three properties, excavation in the area and utility work.

The calorie counting that defined dieting for so long is giving way to other considerations, like the promise of more fiber or natural ingredients. Ed Schmitt of Huntley lost about 70 pounds by eating six small meals a day. Schmitt explained that smaller meals more often, exercise and patience helped him lose the weight over a two-year period.
Calorie counting alternatives Nutrition experts agree there are other methods to lose weight By CHELSEA McDOUGALL firstname.lastname@example.org HUNTLEY – Don’t tell Ed Schmitt he’s on a diet. It was a “lifestyle change” that helped him shed the excess pounds that he carried around for as long as he can remember. Schmitt struggled for years being overweight – the bigger clothes, hiding in pictures, low self-esteem. His tipping point came when a doctor told him he needed a double knee replacement but wouldn’t perform the surgery until he lost weight. He tried it all. A bookshelf in his home office used to house a book on every fad diet under the sun. He counted points. He counted calories. He eliminated carbs. But through it all, the number on the scale wouldn’t budge. Schmitt finally found his weight loss niche and it was without counting calories – a method that has for so long defined weight loss. He tipped the scales at nearly 300 pounds when two years ago he walked into Algonquin-based Healthy Habits Key to Wellness Fitness & Therapy Center. Today he’s 70 pounds lighter. Schmitt, 67, of Huntley, calls himself a food addict, and by eating six small meals a day, he was able to lose weight without giving up his favorite foods. “I never overdid it on broccoli, or cauliflower, or anything, “ Schmitt said with a laugh. “This is not a diet, this is a way to live and deal with food.” Nutrition experts agree that obsessing over calories can leave dieters feeling empty. A recent study funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found that dieting increased cortisol, the biochemical indicator of stress, and often accompanies weight gain. The Foundation, a private organization that promotes public health, also found that most diets fail to create prolonged weight loss. “Calorie counting is still very popu-

By eating smaller meals throughout the day like Schmitt did, the body should be hungry every two hours and that’s normal, Boode explained. If you’re not feeling hungry, it means your body is storing the fat and calories it took in, rather than using them up. The key to that diet is portion control. Preparing several small meals a day was quite a change of pace for Schmitt, a man cut from the generation of three

Workers should be free to choose SPRINGFIELD – Thirty-one years ago, I gave a speech to my high school rhetoric class on how Illinois ought to become a right-to-work state. Back when I was in high school, my hometown of Galesburg was an industrial center that churned out lawn mowers, refrigerators, steel buildings and outboard motors. Industrial unions were powerful in Galesburg just as they were in nearby Peoria, Moline and all across Illinois. So my speech calling for ending compulsory unionism was not particularly well received. After all, many of my classmates were the sons and daughters of union workers. To them, I was preaching apostasy. A right-to-work law simply means that employees cannot be forced to join or otherwise pay union dues in order to keep their jobs. Today, when I visit my hometown, I feel sadness. Those union factory jobs have evaporated. Many of my classmates have moved to other states to raise their families. The Maytag refrigerator plant has been shuttered.
VIEWS Scott Reeder The Butler Manufacturing factory closed. And a plant making Lawn Boy lawn mowers shut down. Galesburg is hardly unique. When I lived in Rock Island in the 1990s, I’d often ask folks what they did for a living. More often than not, they’d respond: “Well, I used to work at …” Today, industrial unions are a shadow of their former selves. Factory jobs are migrating to right-to-work states – places where the marketplace, not union coercion, determine wages. The last time I wrote on this topic, union leaders responded by saying things are much worse in right-towork states. Baloney. Take a look at our neighbors in Iowa and Indiana. Both states are right-to-work states, but the econo-
mies there are chugging along quite nicely. Just consider these statistics compiled by the Illinois Policy Institute: • A net of roughly 5 million Americans moved from the non-right-towork states to right-to-work states from 2000 to 2010. That’s an average of about one person every minute. • Right-to-work states experienced population growth of 15.3 percent while population growth in non-rightto-work states was 5.9 percent between 2000 and 2010. • 28.5 percent of Americans lived in right-to-work states in 1970; by 2008, that percentage rose to nearly 40 percent (to over 121 million). Even Michigan, once the cradle of organized labor, has adopted a rightto-work law. By contrast, Illinois has clung to an outdated model of compulsory unionism. The fact of the matter is that many people who belong to unions would rather not be members. They are given little choice but to keep seeing a portion of their paychecks going to
union bosses. Nowhere is that more evident than among government workers. When workers in Wisconsin were given a choice about whether to join a union, many opted out. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council representing city and county workers in Milwaukee has experienced a 61 percent drop in membership during the first two years that a public employee, right-to-work law has been in place. And the AFSCME council representing state workers saw its membership fall 35 percent, the MacIver Institute reports. Labor unions like to talk about “empowering” workers. The reality is much different. Shouldn’t workers be free to choose?

The Associated Press CUPERTINO, Calif. – Apple is striking a new chord with a $3 billion acquisition of Beats Electronics, a headphone and music streaming specialist that also brings the swagger of rapper Dr. Dre and recording impresario Jimmy Iovine. Wednesday’s announcement comes nearly three weeks after deal negotiations were leaked to the media. It’s by far the most expensive acquisition in Apple’s 38-year history, a price that the company is paying to counter
a threat posed to its iTunes store. The price consists of $2.6 billion in cash and $400 million in Apple stock that will vest over an unspecified time period. The deal is expected to close before October. With $1.1 billion in revenue last year, Beats is already making money and will boost Apple’s earnings once the new fiscal year begins in October, Apple CEO Tim Cook said in an interview. “We have known these guys forever,” Cook said of Iovine and Dre. “We’ve dated, we’ve gone steady and now we are getting married.

“culturally inept,” Iovine said he believes Apple will empower Beats to realize its goals of improving the sound of digital music and creating playlists tailored for each subscriber. The growing popularity of music streaming services such as Pandora and Spotify has been reducing sales of songs and albums, a business that iTunes has dominated for the past decade. U.S. sales of downloaded songs slipped 1 percent last year to $2.8 billion while streaming music revenue surged 39 percent to $1.4 billion, according to the Recording Industry Association of America.

Democrats cooperate with probe of Quinn’s program Audit: Plan grew from $20M to $55M with no documentation why By JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press
State Sen. Jason Barickman listens to lawmakers Wednesday during a Legislative Audit Commission hearing reviewing the Illinois Auditor General’s audit of the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative created by Gov. Pat Quinn in 2010 at the State Capitol in Springfield.
“This is a shameless, useless waste of taxpayer dollars ... It is prudent to use taxpayer dollars to fight violence in Chicago and other cities. This isn’t it.” Sen. Jason Barickman Legislative Audit Commission co-chairman, R-Champaign
8STATE BRIEFS Resources has spent months holding hearings and gathering more than 30,000 comments on the best way to regulate the drilling method. The agency has until November to publish rules for fracking. Lawmakers from southern Illinois, which has a huge shale deposit that could be explored using the technology, accused the agency of dragging its feet. They said the delay is hurting the economy of poorer Illinois counties, and the lawmakers called on Gov. Pat Quinn to intervene. Quinn oversees the Department of Natural Resources. “We’re sitting there waiting. It’s time we put some people back to work down in our area,” state Rep. John Cavaletto of Salem said.
Ill. lawmakers continue talks for 2015 budget SPRINGFIELD – Illinois lawmakers continued to grapple Wednesday with a new state budget, as Republicans ripped majority Democrats for spending beyond their means with a plan even Democrats acknowledge leaves “big unanswered questions” about the state’s finances. A Senate committee debated the $37.5 billion budget approved by the House on Tuesday. But no votes were held as of early Wednesday evening because House Speaker Michael Madigan waited to send the bills to the Senate. The spending plan was put together after House Democrats were unable to get enough support prior to the November election to make Illinois’ temporary income tax increase permanent. Without that roughly $1.8 billion in revenue, the budget keeps spending for schools and most state agencies flat next year but doesn’t account for increased costs – a calculation some lawmakers have said could lead to thousands of layoffs of state employees.
Ill. police overtime costs increase as budget cut SPRINGFIELD – Budget cuts and staff reductions have led to a jump in overtime costs for the Illinois State Police. The Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers reported the agency paid $1.7 million more in overtime during the last fiscal year than it did in 2010. Total overtime increased by 20,000 hours in 2013, compared with three years earlier. Over that period, the budget shrank by $34 million to $383 million. Union representative Mike Powel says there’s “a severe morale issue.” State Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says she’s not aware of a morale problem. She says budgets are being cut across the country and the agency must “hold the line and utilize the resources we have.” She says the harsh winter also likely had a role in the overtime increase.
Illinois lawmakers drop fracking bill, urge action SPRINGFIELD – Lawmakers supporting hydraulic fracturing Wednesday abandoned proposed legislation to speed use of the practice in Illinois, and said they would instead urge a state agency to move more quickly writing rules to regulate it. The Legislature last May authorized the process commonly known as fracking, which uses a high-pressure mixture of water, sand and chemicals to crack and hold open thick rock formations, releasing trapped oil and gas. But the Department of Natural

SPRINGFIELD – In a potential election-year embarrassment for Gov. Pat Quinn, Illinois Democrats said Wednesday that they’ll continue cooperating with a legislative review of his $55 million anti-violence program, which a key Republican called a “shameless, useless waste of taxpayer dollars.” The bipartisan Legislative Audit Commission will try to get people involved in planning and implementing the 2010 “Neighborhood Recovery Initiative” to answer questions after a three-hour appraisal Wednesday of Auditor General William Holland’s caustic review of the program. The audit scorned the initiative, which sought to target violent crime in 23 Chicago neighborhoods, as hastily im-
plemented and suffering from “pervasive” deficiencies. Quinn’s critics have derided it as a political slush fund to drum up city votes before a tight 2010 election. There were few answers Wednesday. The Quinn administration sent to the hearing the director of a successor agency that inherited the program and is credited with bringing more professional standards to its operations. The audit found the plan, hatched in August 2010 during a summer of intense violence, grew from $20 million to $55 million with no documentation to explain why. According to the report, it was doled out to organizations preferred by Chicago alderman instead of competitively, featured questionable spending and left out six of the 20 most violent neighborhoods. “This is a shameless, use-
less waste of taxpayer dollars,” said commission co-chairman Sen. Jason Barickman, a Champaign Republican. “... It is prudent to use taxpayer dollars to fight violence in Chicago and other cities. This isn’t it.” The program was started by the Illinois Violence Prevention Authority, whose doors Quinn closed when shortcomings arose, folding the 11-employee agency into the Criminal Justice Information Authority. On the hot seat Wednesday was that agency’s director, Jack Cutrone, whom commission co-chairman Rep. Frank Mautino said “had this disaster dumped on your lap.” The Spring Valley Democrat said afterward that Barbara Shaw, former director of the Violence Prevention Authority, agreed to appear before the commission but couldn’t be ready by Wednesday. A mes-
sage by The Associated Press left at Shaw’s Chicago home was not immediately returned. Mautino pledged the commission wouldn’t delay its pursuit until after the November election. He acknowledged the possibility politics could consume the issue. Barickman said the governor should get the blame if the issue, which has drawn the interest of Cook County and federal prosecutors, becomes political. “That’s his problem, not mine,” he said. Cutrone acknowledged preparation for the hearing included two meetings with the governor’s staff. One last week involved 11 people, including the deputy in charge of public safety, a governor’s lawyer, and press agents. However, he said his answers to the audit did not come from Quinn’s staff.
Why Haven’t Neuropathy Sufferers Been Told These Facts? Do you have any of the following symptoms? • Pins and needles feeling • Numbness in the hands or feet • Tingling or burning sensations • Weakness in the arms or legs • Sharp shooting or burning pains
If so, you may have a condition called peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy, or “nerve damage,” is one of the most chronic conditions in the U.S., affecting over 20 million Americans. Neuropathy results from injury to the nerves in the arms and legs.This disrupts the body’s ability to communicate with its muscles, organs and tissues. Most people don’t recognize neuropathy’s symptoms, which are: • Pins and needles feeling • Numbness in the hands or feet • Tingling or burning sensations • Weakness in the arms or legs • Sharp shooting or burning pains These annoying problems may come and go...interrupt your sleep...or even make your arm or legs feel weak at times.

What Other Professionals are saying about this program.
Myth #1: Thinking More Pills Are The Only Solution A common treatment for many nerve problems is the ‘take some pills and wait and see’ method. While this may be necessary for temporary relief of severe symptoms, using them long term is no way to live. Some of the more common drugs given include pain pills, anti-seizure mediations, and anti-depressants -- all of which have serious side effects. Why not look for a drugless solution instead of just covering over the pain?

Famous author, Maya Angelou, dies 1969 debut book propelled her into the spotlight By HILLEL ITALIE The Associated Press NEW YORK – Maya Angelou’s story awed millions. A childhood victim of rape, she broke through silence and shame to tell her tale in one of the most widely read memoirs of the 20th century. A black woman born into poverty and segregation, she recited the most popular presidential inaugural poem in history. “I’m not modest,” she told The Associated Press in 2013. “I have no modesty. Modesty is a learned behavior. But I do pray for humility, because humility comes from the inside out.” Angelou, a renaissance woman and cultural pioneer, died Wednesday at her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. She was 86. “She lived a life as a teacher, activist, artist and human being. She was a warrior for equality, tolerance and peace,” said her son, Guy B. Johnson. Tall and regal, with a deep, majestic voice, she was unforgettable whether encountered in person, through sound or the printed word. She was an actress, singer and dancer in the 1950s and 1960s and made a brave and sensational debut as an author in 1969 with “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” which became standard (and occasionally censored) reading and made Angelou one of the first black women to enjoy mainstream literary success. “Caged Bird” was the start of a multipart autobiography that continued through the decades and captured a life of hopeless obscurity and triumphant, kaleidoscopic fame.

She was 86. 1993 when she read her cautiously hopeful “On the Pulse of Morning” at President Bill Clinton’s first inauguration. Her confident performance openly delighted Clinton and made publishing history by making a poem a best-seller. For President George W. Bush, she read another poem, “Amazing Peace,” at the 2005 Christmas tree lighting ceremony at the White House. Presidents honored her in return with a National Medal of Arts and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country’s highest civilian honor. In 2013, she received an honorary National Book Award. She called herself a poet, in love with the “sound of language,” “the music in language,” as she explained to the AP in 2013. But she lived so many lives. She was a wonder to Toni Morrison, who marveled at Angelou’s freedom from inhibition, her willingness to celebrate her own achievements. She was a mentor to Oprah Winfrey, whom she befriended when Winfrey was still a local television re-
porter, and often appeared on her friend’s talk show program. She mastered several languages and published not just poetry but advice books, cookbooks and children’s stories. She wrote music, plays and screenplays, received an Emmy nomination for her acting in “Roots,” and never lost her passion for dance, the art she considered closest to poetry. “The line of the dancer: If you watch [Mikhail] Baryshnikov and you see that line, that’s what the poet tries for. The poet tries for the line, the balance,” she told The Associated Press in 2008, shortly before her 80th birthday. Her very name was a reinvention. Angelou was born Marguerite Johnson in St. Louis and raised in Stamps, Arkansas, and San Francisco, moving back and forth between her parents and her grandmother. She was smart and fresh to the point of danger, packed off by her family to California after sassing a white store clerk in Arkansas. Other times, she didn’t speak at all: At age 7, she
was raped by her mother’s boyfriend and didn’t talk for years. She learned by reading and listening. “I loved the poetry that was sung in the black church: ‘Go down, Moses, way down in Egypt’s land,’” she told the AP. “It just seemed to me the most wonderful way of talking. And ‘Deep River.’ Ooh! Even now it can catch me. And then I started reading, really reading, at about 7½, because a woman in my town took me to the library, a black school library. ... And I read every book, even if I didn’t understand it.” At age 9, she was writing poetry. By 17, she was a single mother. In her early 20s, she danced at a strip joint, ran a brothel, got married and then divorced. But by her mid-20s, she was performing at the Purple Onion in San Francisco. She also spent a few days with Billie Holiday, who was kind enough to sing a lullaby to Angelou’s son, surly enough to heckle her off the stage and astute enough to tell her: “You’re going to be famous. But it won’t be for singing.”
8BRIEFS Obama seeks balance of intervention, isolation WEST POINT, N.Y. – Seeking to redefine America’s foreign policy for a post-war era, President Barack Obama on Wednesday declared that the United States remains the only nation with the capacity to lead on the world stage but argued it would be a mistake to channel that power into unrestrained military adventures. Obama’s approach, outlined in a commencement address at the U.S. Military Academy, underscored his efforts to straddle the line between global isolation and intervention. Neither view, he said, “fully speaks to the demands of this moment.” “It is absolutely true that in the 21st century, American isolation is not an option,” Obama said in remarks to more than 1,000 of the military’s newest officers. “But to say that we have an interest in pursuing peace and freedom beyond our borders is not to say that every problem has a military solution.”
Ukraine: Russia source of insurgent threat DONETSK, Ukraine – As separatists conceded that militants from Russia’s province of Chechnya had joined the rebellion, a Ukrainian government official cautioned Wednesday that its borders had become a “front line” in the crisis. Chechnya’s Moscow-backed strongman brushed away allegations he had dispatched paramilitary forces under his command to Ukraine, saying he was powerless to stop fellow Chechens from joining the fight. While there is no immediate indication that the Kremlin is enabling or supporting combatants from Russia
crossing into Ukraine, Moscow may have to dispel suspicions it is waging a proxy war if it is to avoid more Western sanctions.
Assad’s supporters vote in Syrian election YARZE, Lebanon – Tens of thousands of supporters of Syrian President Bashar Assad voted Wednesday at embassies abroad, clogging entrances to the Lebanese capital for hours and clashing with soldiers overwhelmed by their sheer numbers a week before national elections widely expected to give him a third seven-year term. But reflecting the schism within Syrian society, many of the estimated 2.5 million refugees scattered across neighboring countries were either excluded or abstained from the balloting, which they deem a mockery because it is being held in the middle of a civil war.
Cantor faces both sides of immigration reform RICHMOND, Va. – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor faced criticism over immigration from right and left Wednesday, laying bare the rough politics of the issue even as President Barack Obama sought to increase pressure on House Republicans to act. Cantor’s tea party opponent in Virginia’s June 10 GOP primary, Dave Brat, convened a news conference on the steps of the Virginia Capitol to label Cantor a top cheerleader for “amnesty” in the House, citing Cantor’s support for action on certain immigration measures. “I’ve been telling the president, why can’t we do the things we agree on rather than to bring up this whole amnesty bill,” Cantor said Wednesday on Fox News Channel.

Bill would give RTA more oversight in employee bonuses, severance Continued from page A1 the oversight agency,” Tryon said. The bill requires the RTA to review any bonus for any mass-transit employee in excess of 10 percent of annual salary, and requires Pace, Metra and the CTA to get RTA approval to give a severance agreement in excess of $50,000 or an employment-related settlement agreement in excess of $200,000. The agencies also must give proposed employment contracts greater than $100,000 to the RTA for review. The RTA in turn must submit them to the House Mass Transit and Senate Transportation committees for their review. Senate Bill 3056 cleared the Senate on a 51-0 vote on April 1, the same day that a task force convened by Quinn released a scathing indict-
ment of Chicago-area mass transit, which it alleged was run by “a wasteful and often dysfunctional bureaucracy.” Quinn convened the 15-member Northeastern Illinois Public Transit Task Force last August following yet another high-profile scandal at Metra, which runs suburban commuter rail. The report concluded that state lawmakers in 1983 intentionally weakened much of the RTA’s oversight powers, essentially making Metra, Pace and the CTA independent authorities. A 2008 attempt to strengthen RTA oversight in the wake of a financial crisis and declining ridership did not go far enough, the report stated. Two years later, a corruption scandal brought down Metra’s longtime executive director, and his replacement was forced out because he was, as McHenry County’s
representative on the Metra Board later described him, “too honest for Illinois.” Former CEO Phil Pagano killed himself in 2010 near his rural Crystal Lake home by stepping in front of a Metra train hours before the Metra Board was set to fire him for collecting $475,000 in unauthorized vacation payouts and other fiscal irregularities. He was caught after it was discovered that he forged the former board president’s signature on at least two occasions to collect the payouts. Pagano, who it turns out was supporting two other households besides his own, borrowed so much against his executive compensation package that he died owing Metra at least $127,000. Pagano never revealed why he skimmed the money, but his FBI file, released by the Better Government Association at about the same time
the task force released its report, indicated he may have needed the cash to pay for a number of extramarital affairs and for an ailing father. The Metra Board brought in new CEO Alex Clifford to help clean up the agency, but ousted him in 2013 with eight months remaining on his first contract. When pressed by angry state lawmakers about the potential $718,000 cost of the severance package, Clifford alleged he was forced out because he would not play along with patronage requests made by several Metra Board members at the behest of clout-heavy lawmakers. In one example cited by the report, Metra maintained three boxes of more than 800 index cards of people referred for jobs, promotions or raises by public officials and political influencers. Both the Pagano and Clif-

Low-calorie option isn’t always healthy • CALORIES Continued from page A1 the quantity, the frequency of those foods or suggest a substitute if one is available. Though counting calories is giving way to other considerations – like smaller meals, or the promise of more fiber and natural ingredients – the
high market low-fat, low-calorie foods still dominate. Products like Diet Coke, Special K and Lean Cuisine became weight-watching staples primarily by reducing calories from one’s favorite foods. But there’s one major problem: oftentimes stripping calories or fat also means stripping flavor. “If you truly enjoy low-fat
food, then a low-fat diet is wonderful for you,” Boode said. “I don’t know too many people who truly enjoy low-fat food.” Furthermore, these products may replace calories or fat with more sugars or more sodium to make it more palatable. “It depends on the product, but low-calorie does not necessary equal healthy,” she said.
Village looks to outside money for project • DRAINAGE Continued from page A1 The village is trying to obtain outside money to carry out the project to help alleviate some of the issues by applying for a federal Hazard Mitigation Grant through FEMA. “They have a lot of different flooding events throughout
the country,” Clark said. “At least in Illinois, there’s been so many waves as the storms keep hitting. When they get new ones coming in, they get bogged down.” If the village is awarded a federal Hazard Mitigation Grant, it would have to contribute money toward the project. In the village’s budget for this fiscal year, it has set aside
$575,000 for the drainage and storm water detention design and improvements. Of that money, $250,000 is being set aside to do additional engineering and design work for a potential second phase in the Sunset and Crest neighborhood. Work on a higher level of storm water detention and storage might need to take place over the course of years, officials have said.

ommendations is to abolish the RTA altogether and merge the three mass-transit boards into a single entity. The proposal, if it ever gets pushed in Springfield, is likely to face opposition from McHenry County and other suburban counties, which have seen previous attempts to tinker with the power structure as a way to funnel more money to the CTA. The RTA charges a 0.75 percent sales tax in the collar counties. Two-thirds of it goes to help subsidize mass transit, while the remaining 0.25 percent stays in the individual counties for local infrastructure projects. You can read the text of Senate Bill 3056 at www.ilga. gov, and the reform recommendations of the Northeastern Illinois Public Transit Task Force at www.dot.il.gov/ nepublictransit.html.
ford scandals resulted in a number of resignations on the Metra Board. State law empowers only the Metra Board itself or the governor to remove members against their will, and only under very restrictive circumstances. As an example of how the RTA’s oversight was gutted, Tryon pointed out the reason why Senate Bill 3056 requires Metra, Pace and the CTA to provide immediate access to financial information. Under current law, the agencies have 30 days to report it to the RTA. A regular person is entitled under the Freedom of Information Act to obtain it in as little as five days. “This is strong legislation that should help turn things around at the RTA and its service boards and help restore public trust in these agencies,” Tryon said.

IHSA hearing gets ball rolling In case you missed it, something new and different happened last week in Springfield. Officials from the Illinois High School Association appeared before a committee of the Illinois House of Representatives to answer questions about how the IHSA operates. Numerous questions were posed to the Bloomingtonbased IHSA, a For the record private, nonprofit group that reguWe hope future hearings lates high school focus less on acrimony and sports and activimore on how all sides can ties for about 800 work cooperatively to alleviate schools. problems, both actual and Among the perceived. questions: Why have no basketball title games been played in Chicago? Why does the IHSA have only one black employee? Why did IHSA employee total compensation rise from $2,541,323 in 2011-12 to $3,076,721 in 2012-13, an increase of 21 percent? Why have details not been shared about the exclusive contracts the IHSA has with vendors, suppliers and broadcasters of state tournament games? Why does the 10-member IHSA board have only two black representatives? An attorney who represents the Illinois Press Association and Illinois Broadcasters Association called on the IHSA to be made subject to state open meetings and public records laws. Don Craven made the case for greater transparency because the IHSA oversees sports and other activities at hundreds of public schools and receives money from IHSA-sponsored tournaments. Although the IHSA releases financial audits and annual reports, Craven said that is not enough. The deliberative process by which policies are made needs to be open. Right now, it isn’t. Marty Hickman, the IHSA executive director, defended the organization as financially responsible and responsive to the needs of students and schools. No fees are charged to schools to belong, Hickman said. Ten spectator sports bring in the bulk of tournament ticket sales, he said, but that money covers costs for other non-revenue sports and activities. Member schools receive 20 percent of the income from postseason events, plus guaranteed payments, he said. Hickman said the IHSA has a balanced budget and defended its salaries and pension system, noting that the agency switched from a pension fund to a 401(k) plan six years ago. “We’re not trying to make money,” Hickman said. “We’re trying to put on quality interscholastic programs.” The hearing, which lasted three hours, will be followed by two more hearings, one in Chicago and the other downstate, according to state Rep. Linda Chapa LaVia, D-Aurora, the committee chairwoman. While the first hearing had some tense exchanges and outbursts from spectators, we believe it was a learning experience for the IHSA, legislators, the media and the public. We hope future hearings focus less on acrimony and more on how all sides can work cooperatively to alleviate problems, both actual and perceived. A commitment by the IHSA to increase its levels of transparency and diversity would be a good start.
8IT’S YOUR WRITE Letters of note To the Editor: Occasionally there is a letter that gives some thought, such as the one from Michael Rugh (“Letters miss mark,” May 19). We hear so often the ranting of President Barack Obama’s critics, some who claim he is too Putinesque (too much like a czar). Then we have others who say he’s too weak. Really, how can he be both? Then I read a letter that claims Obama has not done anything more than you can fit into a garage (“No money for Obama library,” May 8). Now isn’t that a profound statement. It is refreshing to read a letter that has real facts. Or the one from Rugh that suggests instead of ranting to the editor, write to your congressman. At least there are fewer letters that spout Republican talking points in opposition to Obamacare, now that it is succeeding beyond expectations. Remember, it’s Congress that

Jeff Denham.

and putting one’s life on the line to protect America does not qualify one for permanent residency in the U.S., then I’m afraid our country has gone astray. The ENLIST Act specifically deals with young men and women who did not decide to immigrate here, but who now call this country home and are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to protect it. The least we can do is offer a green card for those who fight for the red, white and blue. Tim Kustusch North Aurora
A bipartisan call for a bipartisan budget Illinois state representatives
The prairie chicken is the logo of the Illinois Endangered Protection Species Board, so you would think that efforts to save the bird that once was found in almost every county in Illinois would be welcomed. But some pundits consider state spending to fly prairie chickens from Kansas to Illinois to replenish the population here a joke and the latest example of waste in state government. There’s nothing funny about trying to restore a population of birds that was once 14 million strong. The population has declined to 62. That’s not a typo. There were only 62 prairie chickens – a large North American grouse – remaining in Illinois. That’s actually an improvement from 1994, when there were about 30. The population rebounded in the late 1990s until about 2012 because of a translocation project similar to what is being done today. However, drought and a severe hailstorm decimated the population. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources has initiated a three-year project intended to save the prairie chicken. The IDNR received $337,500 from a federal grant, used $181,730 of its own money and received a $30,000 contribution from the Illinois Audubon Society. The plane rides are paid for out of that money. The money is being used for its intended purpose: wildlife and fish restoration. It’s not general revenue tax money.
How to sound off
By TOM CROSS and JACK FRANKS
Chicken fight worthwhile
makes the laws, and the president signs them. Incidentally, Obama has the fewest vetoes of laws of any president. What does that say about the lawmakers? Let’s support our president for a change.
Earlier this year, a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers in both chambers of the Illinois General Assembly endorsed a revenue forecast for fiscal 2015 of $34.495 billion, based on the estimates of the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability, the state of Illinois’ independent budget watchdog. The figure represented an amount that would allow responsible investments in education, infrastructure and public safety, and took into account the expiration of the 2011 income tax increase, as the taxpayers of this state were promised. Unfortunately, in contradiction to the agreement, the Illinois House of Representatives recently approved a budget calling for spending to far exceed available revenue. The House budget authorizes the state to spend $37.35 billion next year, almost 10 percent more than the spending targets set in February. Article VIII, Section 2 of the Illinois Constitution states that “appropriations for a fiscal year shall not exceed funds estimated by the General Assembly to be available during
that year.” The simple truth is that by authorizing Illinois to spend nearly $3 billion more than lawmakers estimate will be available, the House passed a fiscally irresponsible budget, and one that we believe to be unconstitutional. Illinois’ economic woes are the result of decades of bad decisions made by Springfield politicians. Residents and employers are overtaxed and overregulated, while lawmakers have for years paid lip service to the balanced budget provision of the Constitution, approving wildly unrealistic revenue estimates as legal cover for excessive spending. This year, the steps went in reverse, but the dance was the same: The House voted to spend more than we will have in order to justify making the 2011 “temporary” income tax hike permanent. Rather than sticking to the plan agreed to earlier this year, and keeping a promise to the people, some legislators chose to double down on the failed policies of the past. High taxes and an unbalanced budget have not worked, and it is clearly time to change course. Our state’s tepid recovery from the 2008 recession
8THE FIRST AMENDMENT
can be directly attributed to the conditions created by these choices: Our state has the highest unemployment rate the Midwest, and few companies seek to expand or locate in a state from which people are fleeing. Illinois is regularly cited by local and national business leaders as being hostile to job creation. Thousands of families are leaving every year and moving to states with greater economic opportunity, lower tax burdens and better public services. From July 2012 to July 2013, Illinois lost nearly 40,000 residents, the most of any state in the nation during that period. The continuation of these failed policies will hinder the state’s ability to responsibly invest in the future, sticking taxpayers and future generations with higher bills every year. With billions of dollars in unpaid bills and late-payment fees already totaling hundreds of millions of dollars annually, another year in which the state assumes more debt, while further alienating the business community and driving more residents out, is clearly the wrong course. The first step to fixing our state’s finances is to stop the bleeding and balance our budget
going forward. This would eliminate any argument about the need to make an unnecessary, “temporary” tax hike permanent, and also send a signal to employers throughout the world that Illinois is serious about reform and open for business again. Beyond the constitutional guarantee of a balanced budget, taxpayers have a moral right to be protected from paying for unjustified spending. The passage of the resolutions agreeing to Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability’s revenue estimates earlier this year was broad and bipartisan in both chambers of the General Assembly, while the recent budget bills passed the House by the narrowest of margins. Clearly then, a bipartisan solution to the budget debate exists. We pledge to continue to defend Illinois’ taxpayers and to work together to produced a balanced, constitutional budget. • Tom Cross is the Illinois state representative for the 97th District and the Republican nominee for state treasurer.

Urbanski in bee semifinals Local champ hoping to advance to Thursday’s championship round By KEVIN P. CRAVER email@example.com Two words are all that stand between 14-year-old Lucas Urbanski and the Scripps National Spelling Bee finals Thursday. Urbanski, the four-time reigning McHenry County spelling bee champion, has to clear the semifinals
Thursday morning. He has two rounds of one word each to spell correctly – if he scored adequately on a written exam he took Wednesday evening, he goes to the championship round Thursday evening. “I feel pretty good about that last test, but I still have to spell my words right tomorrow,” Urbanski said af-

New District 300 Superintendent Fred Heid walks with Board President Anne Miller on Wednesday outside Westfield Community School in Algonquin after District 300 held a special board meeting to approve the new superintendent. Board members introduced Heid and voted on his contract at the meeting. Heid is replacing Michael Bregy, who will leave Thursday to join North Shore School District 112.
D-300 meets its new leader Administrator touts his reputation as a ‘fixer’ of low-performing schools By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO email@example.com ALGONQUIN – A self-proclaimed “fixer” of Florida schools, Fred Heid said Wednesday he plans on listening to staff and teachers before addressing issues like the achievement gap at District 300. But the Carpentersville-based school district’s newly approved superintendent will have to wait on the Illinois Board of Education before he can make formal decisions. On Wednesday, district board members approved a three-year contract with Heid, a top administrator at Duval County Public Schools in Florida, and then announced he would carry the title of chief executive officer when he starts Monday. An out-of-state candidate, Heid has to wait on the state board to finish reviewing his coursework at Capella University that made him a certified superintendent. Until that review finishes, Heid will work daily in the chief administrator role
while former District 300 Superintendent Ken Arndt serves as interim. The state review could take up to 120 days, Heid said. “I’ll do everything I can to accelerate the timeline,” Heid said. “Day to day, I’ll be here, and he and I will collaborate on any major decisions with the state as far as reporting and documentation.” Arndt would be compensated roughly $340 a day for each day he works, but he will mostly be needed in limited instances to sign official documents, said Board Vice President Joe Stevens. Arndt, a longtime District 300 superintendent, retired from the position in 2011. The contract members approved with Heid pays the replacement to Superintendent Michael Bregy a base salary of $210,000, plus benefits. Bregy leaves District 300 on Thursday to become North Shore District 112 superintendent in Highland Park. Bureaucratic reviews aside, Heid said he is thrilled to start working at District 300.
Born and raised in Miami, Florida, the chief academic officer at Duval County schools – serving roughly 124,000 students – said he liked District 300 for its size and diversity. Before starting at Duval County in 2012, Heid worked at Florida’s education department and an Orange County, Florida, middle school. The District 300 job marks the fourth job he will start in the past five years, but Heid quickly ended speculation that he is a job hopper. He previously had been recruited to those past positions because of his reputation as a “fixer,” who turned around low-performing schools in Florida, he said. Asked whether he plans on staying long at District 300, Heid smiled. “I’m planning to stay as long as you’ll have me,” he said. “I’m not a job hunter. I’m very loyal. This is my first opportunity and one I know will truly grow and flourish in the community. I’m thrilled to be here.” Heid spent a whirlwind of a day meeting with top dis-
trict administrators, union teacher leaders and school principals before catching a flight back to Jacksonville, Florida, early Thursday morning to finish packing for the new job on Monday. Once here, Heid will live at the Extended Stay hotel near Elgin before being reunited with his wife and elementary-aged son this summer, he said. They’ve already looked at homes in Gilberts and Sleepy Hollow. The time Heid spent listening to staff will likely continue. He wants to listen to their concerns before working to address any issues he sees at District 300. But he already has eyed the school data and thinks he could help the district address the achievement gap between white and minority students. “I like to see us focus on closing the achievement gap with a goal of proficiency in mind and not just learning gains,” Heid said. “Until I get here and talk with teachers and administrators, then we will make a decision on our first steps.”
WAUKEGAN – A 22-yearold Island Lake man pleaded guilty in Lake County Court on Wednesday to several charges in a hit-and-run car accident that killed a Port Barrington woman in September. Kevin Gillespie, of the 900 block of Wembley Drive, was sentenced to up to four years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of leaving the scene of an injury accident r e s u l t i n g i n Kevin death and ag- Gillespie gravated driv- 22 ing under the influence, according to the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office. The Lake County Sheriff’s Department sent officers around 2:30 a.m. Sept. 22 to Lamphere Road, just east of Roberts Road, in Island Lake, where Tracy Meger Berry, 46, was found lying in the roadway, according to police reports. Gillespie had already fled the scene when police arrived, leaving behind pieces of his car bumper, according to the state’s attorney’s office. Prosecutors said police found Gillespie after the pieces matched his car parked at his Island Lake house. Gillespie, who has no prior Lake County criminal history, never called police but admitted he stopped his car after he realized he had hit someone and left the scene, according to the state’s attorney’s office. Lake County Judge Daniel Shanes said he accepted the plea deal for Gillespie because “he accepted responsibility for what he did.” Gillespie must serve at least two years in prison before being eligible for parole, according to the state’s attorney’s office.

Girls on the Run wraps up program with 5K race A chapter we will never forget Proud to be part of Girls on the Run The Girls on the Run 5K was so much fun. Waking up at 5:45 a.m. on May 18 was worth it. When I got to the school for the race, I had to find our team. Then, we got to put on the fun and crazy stuff such as hair dye, hair feathers, face paint, funky tattoos, etc. I got to express myself by designing what I wanted to run in. I gave my buddy the race bib I had designed for her, too. When we finally lined up to run, we tried doing the wave, yelled when the announcer said our school and talked excitedly. We also sang and danced to music. When the horn blew, we all rushed out. There was a huge crowd of running girls and buddies. The people on the side helped
After we finished, we helped cheer on other finishers. We watched them cross the finish line smiling. We were all No. 1. The last meeting was a party and celebration. We made crafts to remember the experience, signed each other’s shirts, took pictures, had food and had Kona Ice. We were a great team that helped each other. One thing we all know is that we will never forget this awesome chapter of our lives.
GIRLS ON THE RUN Ansley Morlock us keep going the whole way by cheering. They also kept a smile on our faces. My running buddy was awesome. She asked if I wanted to run or walk and supported me. I saw my softball coach, my teacher, friends and parents who came to support me and all the Girls on the Run. When my buddy and I crossed the finish line together, it was the best. We felt a rush of happiness come through us because we did it. I was proud because I only walked once.
We did it. We completed a 5K. That goes to show you that you can do anything you are determined to do. I know you’re probably wondering what I’m talking about, so let me explain. On May 18 at Girls on the Run, we had our 5K. It was an amazing thing to be a part of. All of Girls on the Run participated in our end-of-theyear 5K. Every girl runs with a running buddy that helps encourage her to finish the race. My running buddy was my second-grade teacher, Mrs. Stlaske, who has been running with me for three years. (Thank you, Mrs. Stlaske.) The 5K race is really fun because everyone is cheering

GIRLS ON THE RUN Anna Calhan you on, you see all the other runners, and it makes you feel like this is the place to be. To me, the Girls on the Run 5K was challenging, but also fun and encouraging. Sometimes, it’s good to be challenged because it makes you stronger. I had my sparkly cord plugged in during the whole 3.1-mile race. When I crossed the finish line, with a smile on my face, I knew I could accomplish anything and that my 10 weeks of training paid off. Girls on the Run is an amazing program that I was
fortunate to be a part of. Being a Girl on the Run has taught me to stay positive, make healthy choices, cooperate with my peers, how to deal with bullying, help make a difference in our community and so many other amazing things that are a part of my everyday life. I am proud to have been involved in Girls on the Run for the past six years and to be a Girls on the Run participant for three years. Thank you, Girls on the Run.

ELGIN: CRASH UNDER INVESTIGATION
Officers attempted traffic blocks before crash that killed local man By SHAWN SHINNEMAN firstname.lastname@example.org ELGIN – A Carpentersville man died Tuesday after a car driven by an Elgin man police were after blew a stop sign and collided with his vehicle, police said. Miguel A. Tellez, 35, of the 1800 block of Endicott Circle, Carpentersville, died at Advocate Sherman Hospital following the crash at Jefferson and Liberty streets in Elgin. At about 5 p.m. Tuesday, police tried to pull over a 2011 Nissan Maxima driven by Steven T. Luellen, of the 300 block of Jefferson St., Elgin. Luellen was wanted on an Illinois Department of Corrections parole warrant, according to a news release from the Elgin Police Department. Police ceased their attempts to stop Luellen after he fled at a high rate of speed, the release said.
Four blocks later, driving east on Jefferson Street, Luellen’s Maxima struck a Mazda MPV that was northbound on Liberty Street and driven by Tellez. The MPV overturned and hit a house in the area. Luellen, 34, who was on parole for an aggravated fleeing and eluding conviction, was taken to St. Alexius Hospital and is being treated for serious but not life-threatening injuries, the release said. A 35-year-old female passenger in his car, Josette Jarvis, of the 300 block of Griswold St., Elgin, was taken to Advocate Sherman Hospital and is in critical condition. Both Luellen and Jarvis are in police custody while they receive treatment, the release said. Elgin police continue to investigate the crash. No charges are anticipated on Wednesday, the release said.

Choose your decking wisely! SPONSORED BY
Summer is almost here, which means everybody’s heading outdoors. If you’ve been thinking about increasing your outdoor living space with a new deck, it pays to research your options when it comes to decking materials. Trex, a top decking brand and inventor of wood-alternative composite decking, offers points to consider in your search for the perfect deck. · First, think about what material you want to use. High-performance composite decking, made of wood and plastic, offers soap-and-water maintenance, is fade, stain, scratch and mold resistant, has a natural wood-grain finish and rich color, is earth-friendly, and comes with fade and stain warranties. However, it can be costlier than other materials. · PVC (vinyl) decking is plastic with no organic content. It’s low-maintenance, resistant to mold, stains and scratches, and needs no painting. It does, however, tend to squeak and gets chalky. Because it’s non-organic, it’s not
earth-friendly and it can be costly. · Early generation composite decking doesn’t rot or splinter. It’s durable and earth-friendly, but it can fade and stain, is prone to mold and mildew, requires periodic cleaning with deck wash, and is susceptible to scratches. · Wood is real and natural, affordable and easy to work with. However, as most everyone knows, it rots, splits, swells, twists and faces. It also contributes to deforestation, causes splinters, and isn’t always eco-friendly when it’s pressure-treated with toxic chemicals or painted, stained or sealed. Hines Supply offers a great selection of decking, railing, porch and fence materials, including a complete line of top brand PVC and Trex high-performance composite decking and railing systems in-stock and ready to deliver. Hines decking materials come in a variety of colors and textures and Hines carries all of the installation materials and accessories for your new deck, including the latest in deck lighting, gates, hardware, posts, caps, columns, hidden deck fasteners and more.

Spain’s goalkeeper Iker Casillas (center) holds up the World Cup trophy with team members as they celebrate their 2010 victory. Winning the soccer World Cup can bring instant rewards to that country’s stock market investors. But they better be quick as the post-victory rally doesn’t last long.
Instant confidence Lifting World Cup can boost country’s stock market By PAN PYLAS The Associated Press LONDON – Winning the soccer World Cup can bring instant rewards to that country’s stock market investors. But they better be quick as the post-victory rally doesn’t last long. That’s the conclusion of investment bank Goldman Sachs, which published a wide-ranging report on the World Cup and its economic impact. Goldman Sachs analysts found “a clear pattern of outperformance by the winning team in the weeks after the World Cup final.” On average, the victorious country’s stocks outperform the global market by 3.5 percent in the first month, the investment bank’s strategy team said. The conclusions are based on statistics since 1974, when West Germany beat the Netherlands, and appear to be fairly consistent over time. Only Brazil failed to outperform after its win in 2002, largely because the football-mad nation was consumed by recession and a currency crisis. “In the absence of a severe eco-
nomic crisis, the winner tends to enjoy the spoils of success in the markets for a brief period at least,” Peter Oppenheimer, Goldman Sachs’ chief global equity strategist, said in the report published late Tuesday. A notable exception was Spain, whose stock market rallied 5.7 percent in the month after the national team won in 2010 its first World Cup – even though the country, along with many of its peers in Europe, was in the midst of an economic and financial crisis. Investors should be careful, however, not to think that such euphoria will yield longer-lasting gains. “Sentiment can only take you so far, in markets at least – the winning nation doesn’t tend to hold onto its gains and, on average, sees its stock market underperform by around 4 percent over the year following the final,” Oppenheimer said. “The message seems to be: Enjoy the gains while they last.” For the country that loses the final, Goldman Sachs found a more modest outperformance of 2 percent in the first month as the runners-up
“seem to experience a post-final bout of the blues.” However, Goldman Sachs found that figure is heavily skewed by the fact that Argentina enjoyed a 33 percent outperformance in the month after it lost the 1990 World Cup final to Germany as it was recovering from a prior stock market collapse and currency devaluation. Aside from this, Goldman Sachs found that seven of the nine losing finalists underperformed by 1.4 percent. “Interestingly, the poor performance doesn’t stop there,” Oppenheimer said. “Most of the World Cup runners-up have seen their stock markets continue to underperform, with an average relative fall of 5.6 percent over the first three months. Oppenheimer said the “ultimate goal” is to win the trophy and host the tournament as there’s a 2.7 percent outperformance on that front in the first month after the event. That’s certainly the goal for Brazil, this year’s host and one of the favorites. The 32-country World Cup kicks off on June 12.
U.S. business leaders assess Cuba business climate By PETER ORSI The Associated Press HAVANA – The head of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce toured an auto repair cooperative and talked with newly minted private entrepreneurs Wednesday as part of the first American trade mission of its kind to Cuba in 15 years. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue led a baker’s dozen of U.S. business figures to assess the island’s changed business climate under economic reforms that have included an expansion of the tiny private sector, the decentralization of state-run enterprises and a drive to lure badly needed foreign investment. “We’re very pleased to be here,” Donohue said. “We’re learning a lot about the changes taking place in Cuba.” Washington and Havana have not had formal diplomatic relations since the early 1960s, and the United States maintains a 52-year-old trade embargo against the Communist-run country. Cuba buys some U.S. food and agricultural goods under an exception to the sanctions, but in recent years has increasingly turned to other countries that don’t require cash upfront. From a high of $962 million in 2008, U.S. sales to the island fell to $509 million in 2012, the most recent year for which official figures are available. Cuba’s calculation is believed to be higher than the simple dollar value of the imports, apparently factoring in embargo-related losses due to unfavorable credit terms, currency exchanges and shipping complications. Chamber officials said the goal of the trip was to explore not only trade possibilities allowed under the current rules but also opportunities in a post-embargo future.
LAKE IN THE HILLS – A free workshop for estate planners, accountants and certified financial advisers will be from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. June 10 at Boulder Ridge Country Club, 350 Boulder Drive, Lake in the Hills.

Provenza PC, will discuss “Estate and Gift Planning One Year after ATRA.” The presentation will focus on the dramatic falloff in the use of wills and trusts, what happened and why, and how gift planners can respond, including some case studies. To attend, RSVP to Meg LaMonica at 815-338-4483 or firstname.lastname@example.org by June 5.

ISS seeks ouster of most of Target’s board
Donohue, who has been president of the Chamber since 1997 and last visited the island in 1999, said today’s Cuba is “fundamentally different in terms of the number of people that are operating under the private system ... not working for the government.” The trip was criticized by some back home, including Sen. Robert Menendez, a Cuban-American Democrat from New Jersey who sent a letter to the Chamber expressing concerns about strengthening trade ties to Cuba. He alleged that several foreign businesspeople jailed alongside dozens of islanders as part of a crackdown on corruption were imprisoned “without justification,” and accused Havana of violating international labor standards and oppressing fundamental human rights.
NEW YORK – A prominent proxy advisory firm has recommended that Target shareholders vote out seven of its 10 board members after a massive pre-Christmas data breach. Institutional Shareholder Services on Wednesday targeted those members who serve on the company’s audit and corporate responsibility committee. Included on that list are Anne Mulcahy, former chairwoman and CEO at Xerox, and James A. Johnson, who was once the CEO at Fannie Mae. ISS also recommended that shareholders should vote to separate the roles of chairman and chief executive. The data theft, which led to the breach of millions of debit and credit-card accounts, has cut into profits and sales at the nation’s third-largest retailer. Target, based in Minneapolis, cut its annual profit outlook last week after a 16 percent decline in first-quarter earnings. That followed a 46 percent drop in fourth-quarter profits. The board fired CEO Gregg Steinhafel in early May. The company’s chief financial officer John Mulligan is acting CEO, but Target is still searching for a new leader. The company’s chief information officer Beth Jacobs abruptly resigned in March.

U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas Donohue (second left) talks with the news media before a meeting with Cuba’s Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez in Havana, Cuba. A U.S. Chamber of Commerce Delegation arrived in Cuba on Wednesday to explore the country’s business climate. At the Havana auto body shop, which 10 months ago was converted from a state-run business to an autonomous cooperative, masked workers sanded car hoods and fenders to prepare them for fresh paint jobs as the visitors got a guided tour. “This new model of association gives you the freedom of self-management, which allows us to do more and make decisions about our resources,” co-op president Marcelo Gonzalez said. “Productivity has greatly increased.” Cuban officials say cooperatives are a key element of their drive to boost efficiency without abandoning entirely the socialist principles that have guided the economy for more than a half-century. About 450 non-agricultural cooperatives are currently in operation and some 455,000 Cubans own or are employed by private small businesses, according to government figures.

Spruce up your finances with some spring cleaning Mention spring cleaning to most people and they immediately think of a vacuum cleaner, dust cloth and furniture polish and, for the really ambitious, a pail, spray bottle and squeegee for window washing. Cleaning up finances can be even more rewarding and is guaranteed to last longer than dusting. The real payoff is that future financial hassles can be avoided by just a few simple steps, and if you are the typical busy worker, homemaker or retiree, time is a valuable commodity. • Clean up your credit report: Review your credit report, which is free at www.annualcreditreport. com.

The Chamber group was meeting privately with smallbusiness owners later in the day and paying a visit to Energas SA, a joint concern between the Cuban government and Canada’s Sherritt that operates several gas-powered electrical plants on the island’s northern coast. The delegation included top executives from Minnesota agribusiness giant Cargill and Alticor, the Michigan-based parent company of the directsales business Amway.

MONEY MATTERS Virginia Peschke items are presented may differ. A careful review of your reports is strongly advised on an annual basis. Access all three reports at once or one at a time over the course of the year to see your progress in ensuring good credit. The most common score is the Fair Isaac score, known as FICO. Information about your credit and loan history, including amounts and payment history is used extensively by potential lenders to evaluate your credit worthiness, so, if you find false negative items or mistakes, you should file a dispute with the credit bureaus to have them corrected or removed. • Clean up bad credit: Fixing bad credit is all about starting to pay bills on time, budgeting and using
credit wisely. At the first sign of a late or missed payment, inform creditors of your present situation and how you plan to resolve your financial problems. If you have a good payment history, you may be able to negotiate your next payment. Pay down the credit cards and loans with the highest interest rates first. If you can’t pay off your monthly credit-card balance in full, at least pay more than the minimum while you work off the debt. • Eliminate old paperwork: Shred ATM receipts and bank deposits after they appear on bank statements. Shred pay stubs after matching them with your year-end statement. Properly disposing of these can help prevent identity theft. Shred your utility statements after you’ve paid them. If your credit-card statements are accurate and you have paid them, you can shred them, too. However, you may want to retain statements showing big-ticket purchases. They could
be useful for insurance or warranty proof purposes. To prevent identity theft, use a paper shredder, available at your local office supply store and check with your local bank to see whether they offer free shredding throughout the year. • Go paperless: Cut down on paperwork by opting for electronic bills to be sent to your password-protected email. Decreasing the number of paper bills sent to your home can help fight identity theft, which is the nation’s fastest-growing crime. About 19 people become new victims every minute. Keep your passwords safe and your online bill-payment method secure.

Google building car with no steering wheel By JUSTIN PRITCHARD The Associated Press LOS ANGELES – Google will build a car without a steering wheel. It doesn’t need one because it drives itself. The two-seater won’t be sold publicly, but Google said Tuesday it hopes by this time next year, 100 prototypes will be on public roads. Though not driving very quickly – the top speed would be 25 mph. The cars are a natural next step for Google, which already has driven hundreds of thousands of miles in California with Lexus SUVs and Toyota Priuses outfitted with a combination of sensors and computers. Those cars have Googleemployed “safety drivers” behind the wheel in case of emergency. The new cars would eliminate the driver from the task of driving. No steering wheel, no
Interactive, a market research firm found that 23 percent of adults say they pay bills late – and thus incur fees – because they lose the bills. In addition to substantial late fees, misplacing bills could potentially lower your credit score. • Decrease the plastic in your wallet: Limit the number of credit cards you own and carry. Use just one card if you can and pay the balance on time. Carefully read your monthly statements to make sure the charges are accurate. Use the phone number listed by the item charged to dispute the charge. If the entity named refuses to remove the charge, contact the credit-card company to take action. Don’t hesitate to contact your creditors to ask for lower rates on cards on which you have made regular payments.

U.S. bank earnings decline 7.7 percent in first quarter By MARCY GORDON The Associated Press
This image provided by Google shows a very early version of Google’s prototype self-driving car. brake and gas pedals. Instead, buttons for go and stop. “It reminded me of catching a chairlift by yourself, a bit of solitude I found really enjoyable,” Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, told a Southern California tech conference Tuesday evening of his first ride, according to a transcript.
The electric-powered car is compact and bubbleshaped – something that might move people around a corporate campus or congested downtown. Google is unlikely to go deeply into auto manufacturing. In unveiling the prototype, the company emphasized partnering with other firms.
WASHINGTON – U.S. banks’ earnings declined 7.7 percent in the January-March quarter from a year earlier, as higher interest rates dampened demand for mortgage refinancing and reduced banks’ revenue from the mortgage business. The data issued Wednesday by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. highlighted the impact of the increase in interest rates that occurred in the spring of 2013. It was only the second time in the past 19 quarters that the banking industry, which has been recovering from the financial crisis, posted a decline in net income from the year-earlier quarter. The FDIC reported that the banking industry earned $37.2 billion in the first quarter of
this year, down from $40.3 billion in the same period in 2013. It was the first time since the third quarter of 2013 that banks marked a year-overyear profit decline – and that was the first decline since the spring of 2009, when the country still was mired in the Great Recession. The latest report also showed the number of banks on the FDIC’s problem list fell to 411 in the first quarter from 467 in the fourth quarter of last year. Despite recent declines, long-term mortgage rates still are nearly a full percentage point above record lows reached about a year ago. The increase over the year was driven in part by speculation that the Federal Reserve would reduce its bond purchases, which have helped keep long-term interest rates low.

KISHWAUKEE RIVER CONFERENCE
Genoa-Kingston rejects invitation, plans to stay in BNC By NORTHWEST HERALD A day after principals representing schools that will form the Kishwaukee River Conference announced they had contacted three schools with invitations to join, the group has received its first rejection letter. Genoa-Kingston released a statement Wednesday morning, stating it had received an invitation to join the KRC, but that it was planning to remain in the Big Northern Conference. G-K was one of the three schools con-
tacted along with Richmond-Burton and Johnsburg. R-B principal Tom Lind and Johnsburg principal Kevin Shelton did not immediately respond to phone calls and emails regarding their schools’ response Wednesday. “After careful considerations dating back to this past fall, Genoa-Kingston High School will stay in the Big Northern Conference,” G-K principal Brett McPherson wrote in a statement issued by the school. “Our top priorities are the GK students and the GK
community, and we feel the BNC is the best fit for them. We respect the decision of the 3 schools leaving the BNC and look forward to a continued positive relationship with those schools.” As it stands, Woodstock, Woodstock North, Harvard, Burlington Central and Marengo remain the five schools committed to joining the KRC starting in the fall of 2015. Conferences typically require a two-year notice that a school is leaving. The Woodstock schools will be the
smallest in the FVC next year when Johnsburg leaves to re-join the BNC. They felt they were at a competitive disadvantage and searched for other options. Burlington, Harvard and Marengo, citing consistent issues with long travel for competition, liked the idea of joining Woodstock and Woodstock North, even if the KRC starts as a fiveteam league. That would leave those schools with a glut of nonconference dates to fill, but they felt that was better than all the travel.
BASEBALL: CLASS 4A DEKALB REGIONAL
McHenry hires boys assistant Niemic
Sullivan’s triple lifts Huntley in semifinal
By JOE STEVENSON firstname.lastname@example.org
By JEFF ARNOLD email@example.com DeKALB – If his calculations were correct, Matt Sullivan figured that the first pitch he saw when he stepped to the plate in the fifth inning was going be an off-speed offering. The Huntley junior shortstop spent much of Wednesday’s Class 4A DeKalb Regional semifinal studying Larkin starter Jack McCracken. For the most part, the first pitch McCracken threw to Red Raiders hitters was anything but a fastball. So, with the game scoreless and the bases loaded, Sullivan attacked a McCracken curveball and laced it down the right field line. Sullivan’s threerun triple did the majority of the damage in Huntley’s 4-0 win that advanced the Red Raiders to Saturday’s 10 a.m. regional championship game against either Dundee-Crown or DeKalb. The Chargers and Barbs face one another in a regional semifinal Thursday in DeKalb. Huntley (25-7-1) moved on despite only four hits, making the most of a stellar outing by Eric Luecht and plenty of defensive help. “I thought for two-thirds of the game we played well and then we broke it open,” Huntley coach Andy Jakubowski said. “It takes three components (pitching, defense and hitting) and we lagged a little bit hitting-wise, but we were able to capitalize on a mistake and go from there.” Huntley took advantage of a pair of Larkin errors in the fifth inning. The second came on a ground ball that appeared destined for an inning-ending double play. But instead, a botched fielding effort loaded the bases, bringing Sullivan to the plate. Even though the Red Raiders had managed only one hit to that point, Sullivan knew he had a chance to get Huntley going. And he knew what was getting. So when McCracken threw a curveball low and away, Sullivan went after it. “I wasn’t trying to do too much, but I saw my pitch and I just went with it,” Sullivan said. Once in the air, the ball moved away from Larkin right fielder Jonathan Avila and ended up dusting up the chalk of the foul line before rolling into the corner. “I was watching it,” Sullivan said. “The wind took it and I was getting a little nervous rounding first base.” In the Huntley dugout, Luecht saw the ball land in fair territory, clearing the bases. Mark Skonieczny followed with an RBI sacrifice fly that pushed the Red Raiders’ lead to 4-0, giving Luecht plenty to work with. Luecht, who benefited from a handful of sparkling plays and two pick-offs by Skonieczny, took it from there. The senior ace allowed only three hits in the complete-game victory, striking out five. “Eventually, I knew we were going to come around (offensively) because we don’t give up,” Luecht said. “(Sullivan’s triple) was a big weight off the shoulders. It took a little while, but it was awesome when that happened.”

GIRLS SOCCER: CLASS 2A GRAYSLAKE NORTH SECTIONAL
Lake Forest tops PR to reach final By TIM SIECK
firstname.lastname@example.org GRAYSLAKE – Prairie Ridge entered Wednesday’s sectional semifinal with a daunting task, trying to defeat a Lake Forest team that was the top seed in the sectional and had won its previous two regional matches by a combined 19 goals. The Wolves put forth a valiant effort, but fell short as Lake Forest will move on after a 2-0 victory in the first semifinal of the Class 2A Grayslake North Sectional. A fast start would be key to any hopes of a Prairie Ridge (13-7-1) upset and the Wolves came out ready to play. Prairie Ridge controlled the tempo most of the half and the Wolves physicality seemed to disrupt what Lake Forest (15-6-1) wanted to do. “Defensively, we did what we needed to do,” Wolves coach JC Brown said. “I’m really proud of how we defended and against a team like Lake Forest you have to play great defense to have any chance of winning.” The first half finished scoreless, but things would pick up in the second half. Lake Forest had great back-to-back scoring chances off corner kicks just 70 seconds apart, but both shots were stymied by Wolves keeper Brooke Laibly. The match remained scoreless until the 60-minute mark when Lake Forest was able to convert on a corner kick. Lucy Edwards took the feed from Paige Bourne
Wednesday’s semifinals Lake Forest 2, Praire Ridge 0 St. Viator 1, Deerfield 0 Friday’s championship Lake Forest vs St. Viator, 6:30 p.m. to put the Scouts up 1-0. Lake Forest had two great scoring chance at the 64- and 65-minute mark, but two great saves by Laibly kept the score 1-0. The Scouts put the game out of reach with nine minutes remaining on a goal from Bailey Ehrens. Although they were successful on their corner kicks Wednesday, this was an area Lake Forest struggled in most of the season. “We practice corner kicks so much, but have been so bad at scoring off them,” Scouts coach Ty Stuckslager said. “It was nice to finally convert on one. I’m proud of how we played against a very good Prairie Ridge team.” In their season finale, Wolves coach JC Brown gave all the credit to the opposition. “This was the best defensive team we played against all season,” Brown said. “We had a tough time adjusting and in the second half they seemed to want it more. They are a good team that deserves to keep playing for a long time.”
As Rob Niemic sees it, basketball is basketball and athletes are athletes. Niemic, an assistant for McHenry’s boys basketball varsity team the past six seasons, has been hired to take over as the school’s girls Rob coach after Niemic recently being approved by the District 156 school board. Niemic replaces Scott Morris, who resigned after seven seasons as coach. Niemic has taught U.S. history and other social studies classes since he came to McHenry West Campus in 2006. “When I found out, I talked to the returning varsity kids and every single one of them was excited and wanted to work,” Niemic said. “It’s all about wanting to be pushed. Their reaction was very positive and made me more excited about working toward it.” Niemic, a 2001 Crystal Lake South graduate, was a Northwest Herald All-Area first-team selection that year, leading the area in scoring at 20 points a game. He played at NAIA Hastings (Nebraska) College and has worked as an assistant coach in football and baseball, as well as basketball at McHenry. Niemic’s first basketball coaching job with the Warriors was as girls sophomore coach in 2007. “He’s so prepared and we’re not going to get anyone who gives more time to the game than Rob,” McHenry athletic director Barry Burmeister said. “It’s nice to have one of your own who comes in and knocks it out of the park on his interview. He’s definitely the person to take it to the next level.” Niemic was McHenry’s boys head sophomore coach in 2008, then assisted with boys varsity head coach Tim Paddock for the past six seasons.

Boylan uses late rally to nip Marengo NORTHWEST HERALD BELVIDERE – Season-ending losses do not come much harder than the one Marengo suffered at the hands of Boylan on Wednesday. Top-seeded Boylan (26-5) scored twice in the bottom of the seventh, off a bases-loaded walk and a passed ball, to beat the No. 4 Indians, 2-1, in their Class 3A Belvidere North Regional semifinal baseball game. Ethan Walsweer pitched a complete game for Marengo and allowed two hits. “I’m not going to lie, it was really tough,” Marengo coach Josh Maas said. “Ethan threw really well. They didn’t hit a ball hard until the double in the seventh inning. It was frustrating.” Marengo(11-15)scoreditsrun in the third on Erik Kurczewski’s RBI single.

GIRLS SOCCER: CLASS 3A ROCKFORD AUBURN SECTIONAL
Offense clicks for Huntley when it matters By CHRIS CASEY email@example.com ROCKFORD – The Huntley girls soccer team was one of the conference favorites coming into this season, but after the Red Raiders lost a couple of close matches and fell out of that race, they decided the playoffs would be a good time to make up for it. Huntley scored plenty Wednesday night in a Class 3A Rockford Auburn Sectional semifinal to beat McHenry, 5-0. “We feel like we were a little underestimated coming into the playoffs because of some of those early losses,” sophomore Taryn Jakubowski said. “We got the early goal, and it gave us the early mo-

mentum, which we were able to use to our advantage.” Huntley (18-6) got on the board two minutes into the match when defender Rachel Zobott found the end of a Katie Costantino corner kick and headed it in. Jakubowski added a goal with 12 minutes remaining in the half to give Huntley a 2-0 lead heading into
halftime. “Early goals help us a lot,” Huntley coach Kris Grabner said. “It’s something we’ve talked about and we got important contributions from each and every girl tonight.” It has been no secret that the Warriors’ (14-8) success has relied heavily on seniors Avalon Senn-Raemont and Alexis Morales. Huntley knew going in that it would have to shut down those two to be successful. “We man marked them both for the entire game,” Zobott said. “We knew if they constantly has someone on them, it would make it tough for them to make plays and create scoring chances.” The one time Huntley did lose Senn-Raemont, Morales found her
with a ball over the top of the Red Raiders’ defense. Senn-Raemont was in alone on goalkeeper Jessica Galason and slid the ball past her but just wide of the post. “They are really good defensively,” Senn-Raemont said. “We didn’t have our best game on a night where we needed to.” Jakubowski assisted on two goals in the second half. The first, with 24 minutes remaining, to Costantino and second, shortly after, to Alyssa Kaufman. Deanna Hecht added the last goal for Huntley with just more than five minutes remaining. The Red Raiders will face Harlem in the sectional final at 5 p.m. Friday.

BOYS TENNIS: STATE PREVIEW
Tough opening matches scheduled for many locals By ROB SMITH firstname.lastname@example.org There were no area boys tennis players seeded at the state finals, which begin Thursday, but almost half will face seeded players in their first match. Of the 15 area singles players and doubles teams that qualified for state, seven will face a seeded opponent in the opening round. Although there are some provisions about separating sectional opponents and teammates, the state tournament draw is pretty much a blind one after the 32 seeds in both singles and doubles are
determined. The area’s seven singles qualifiers and eight doubles teams will be spread across eight sites from Schaumburg to Buffalo Grove. McHenry’s Nick Higgin and Jake Maher, who qualified in doubles after a third-place finish at the Cary-Grove Sectional, did not draw a seed in the first round and were not sure who they were playing. They are slated to play IMSA’s Sam Cheung and Rajiv Patel-O’Connor but Patel-O’Connor was paired with Ken Yun at the Waubonsie Valley Sectional, where the team finished fourth. Warriors coach Kyle Funkhous-
er said he wasn’t sure why Cheung was listed instead of Yun. The IHSA permits substitutions for doubles players under certain circumstances, including injury and the substitute “shall not have participated in the sectional tournament and must have been listed on the school’s online List of Participants.” “I don’t know if that’s a typo,” Funkhouser said. “I guess we’ll find out first thing [Thursday]. Nothing is ever easy when you get to state, but we could have done worse.” Jacobs’ Kailash Panchapakesan, who went 3-2 at state last year, faces unseeded Luke Winchester from Ot-
tawa in the first round. If Panchapakesan wins, he could see 9-16 seed Sebastian Lescoulie of Carbondale. Lescoulie, a foreign exchange student from France, lost only three games in his four matches at the Herrin Sectional and is undefeated on the year. “I try not to look too far ahead, (but) I’m definitely looking forward to seeing that match,” Jacobs coach Jon Betts said of possibly seeing Lescoulie in the second round. “Kailash is playing extremely well.” The Golden Eagles’ Riley Rowan and Matt Toomire, who won the Jacobs Sectional doubles title, will see a team from Peoria Notre Dame that
placed fourth at the Dunlap Sectional. If they advance, they could see 1732 seed Justin Buechele and Brandon Lam of Normal Community. “I’m pretty pleased with the first round (draw),” Betts said. “That Normal team obviously got some pretty good seeding consideration.” Prairie Ridge senior Ryan Kohl, who qualified in doubles as a freshman and in singles as a sophomore, said he focuses more on the experience than the outcome. “I don’t pay much attention to the results,” Kohl said. “I try to enjoy it. It’s not every day you get to go to state.”
SOFTBALL: CLASS 3A WOODSTOCK NORTH REGIONAL
Marengo’s Dionne throws no-hitter By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO email@example.com WOODSTOCK – Nine Woodstock North batters settled in at the plate against Marengo freshman pitcher Mariah Dionne during the first three innings Wednesday. All nine batters were forced to walk back to the dugout after Dionne struck out each of them. Dionne’s nine consecutive strikeouts to start the Class 3A Woodstock North Regional semifinal against the Thunder were the beginnings of a dominant performance. Dionne threw a no-hitter and struck out 15 to lead the Indians to a 4-0 win. Marengo advances to Saturday’s 11 a.m. regional final against Richmond-Burton, which beat Marian Central, 1210, in the second semifinal game Wednesday. Only one Woodstock North batter reached against Dionne (19-4), on a two-out walk in the fifth. The Thunder struggled to connect against Dionne’s fastballs which top out at 61 mph. “I feel like I came in loose, strong, and I came in determined,” Dionne said. “My pitches were moving very well.

Although Marian plated two runs and brought the game-winning run to the plate, R-B pitcher Andrea Modlin (11-4) got two pop ups for the final two outs of the seventh to strand runners on the corners and give the Rockets the win. “The girls knew it was either now or never,” R-B coach Stephanie Rasmusen said. “They were bound and determined to get to this field on Saturday against Marengo and hopefully bring in a win. We’ve been in that jam before, and they just buckled down and wanted it.” R-B (18-11) took a 4-0 lead in the second led by Taylor Mell’s three-run homer.

Marengo’s offense provided enough support to back Dionne. Marengo (26-10) took a 1-0 lead in the second inning, thanks to an error by Woodstock North (6-23). The Indians scored three more runs in the third, including sacrifice flies by Carlson and Gabbi Markison. “I think [Marengo] was expecting to go home in five innings, and that didn’t happen,” Thunder coach Pete Riis said. “So for us, you could call that a minor victory.”

If you get too far down, you’re not going to be able to come back.” The bottom of the fifth was not so kind to South. Barrington was down to its last pitch in the inning before breaking the game open with four runs. Shortstop Daniel Kubiuk delivered a bases-loaded double off the left-field fence and the top-seeded Broncos defeated No. 4 South, 8-3, in their Class 4A Crystal Lake South Regional semifinal game Wednesday. Barrington (26-10) advances to Saturday’s 3 p.m. championship against the winner of Thursday’s 4:30 p.m. semifinal between Cary-Grove and Jacobs. South starter Josh Smith was one pitch from working a perfect fifth inning, just after the Gators had cut the lead to 3-2. On a 2-2 pitch, Barrington’s Jake Petersen was able to check his swing and was hit in the leg by the pitch. Jake Coon reached on an infield single and Shane Yorton walked to set up Kubiuk. “I have the opportunity to hit behind some amazing guys,” Kubiuk said. “They’re hitting the heck out of the ball. It’s just special. Coach gave me the green light on 0-0 and it’s a pitch I like to go after.” Kubiuk’s drive hit the left-field fence about 2 feet up

He then scored on Casey Dodge’s pinch-hit single. “I thought it was a huge momentum shift and really gave us a good high right there,” Kubiuk said. “Everyone in the field fed off that in the next inning.” Gators coach Brian Bogda wished his team could have gotten more out of the fifth. South had three hits, but left runners on second and third with its No. 3 and 4 hitters, Paul Wille and Casey Oliver, at the plate. “A hit might have changed the momentum more,” Bogda said. “That was a tough inning. It’s tough to battle back from that big inning [for them].” Delaurentis was lifted with one out in the sixth and Brad Powell and Kubiuk finished off the victory. “If we were able to hold them there, it would more than likely be a different turnout, and we’d be moving forward,” said Oliver, South’s catcher. “We had some momentum, we got unlucky.” With two outs in the top of the seventh, Bogda and Wille were ejected from the game. Bogda did not like how the home-plate umpire took Wille’s bat to re-draw the line on the batter’s box. “I don’t think that was handled the right way,” Bogda said. “I don’t think it’s normal for an adult to take a bat out of a kid’s hands. I’ve never seen that before.”
HARVARD – Richmond-Burton’s Joe Dittmar welcomed the opportunity to give Rockets senior starting pitcher Mike Kaska a victory in Wednesday’s Class 3A Harvard Regional semifinal. Kaska had just struck out against Harvard starting pitcher Matt Piechocki in the bottom of the sixth inning with the go-ahead run on third base when Dittmar stepped to the plate with two outs. “I just wanted to put the ball in play, and if the ball found a gap, I knew the run would score,” Dittmar said. The game-winning hit never left the infield, but it worked just as well. Dittmar sent a groundball up the middle that kicked off the glove of Piechocki, who found the ball but not the grip, scoring Jake Tiso from third base to give R-B a 1-0 win. Kaska struck out the side in the bottom of the seventh – leaving the tying run on second base. He finished with 13 strikeouts, walking four and

allowing three hits in the complete-game shutout. The top-seeded Rockets advance to Saturday’s regional final, their fourth consecutive appearance. R-B will play the winner of Thursday’s semifinal between Woodstock and Marian Central. “Both pitchers obviously controlled the game, and we were just fortunate enough to squeak one out at the end there,” R-B coach Mike Giese said. “This was a good baseball game played by both sides, but our guy came through.” Locked in a scoreless tie, Tiso led off the bottom of the sixth with a single to center field and reached second base when the ball was misplayed
in the outfield. Brian Wells advanced Tiso to third base on a groundout to second, followed by Kaska’s strikeout and Dittmar’s winning RBI hit off Piechocki. Piechocki gave the Hornets life in the bottom half of the inning with a leadoff single, but Kaska struck out three of the next four batters to seal the win for R-B (19-11). “I was just trying to keep my pitches down today so they couldn’t get any [balls] in the gaps,” Kaska said. “It was more my fastball and not my curve. I was kind of leaving the curve up high and not throwing many strikes with it, so I relied heavily on the fastball.” Reiss Bielski and Peyton Schneider had the two remaining hits for Harvard (1414). Piechocki allowed one unearned run on seven hits, no walks and three strikeouts in six innings. In addition to putting the tying run on second in the seventh inning, Harvard stranded a runner at third base with two outs in the sixth.
SOFTBALL: CLASS 4A McHENRY REGIONAL
Wolves fall despite 4 runs in 7th By RYAN ALTMAN firstname.lastname@example.org Through six innings of Wednesday’s Class 4A McHenry Regional semifinal, the Prairie Ridge softball team failed to figure out Grant pitcher Caitlyn Moran. The Wolves finally broke through in the bottom of the seventh, scoring four runs, but fell short in their comeback bid against Moran, losing 5-4. Moran limited the Wolves (20-9) to one hit and struck out eight before the seventh inning. Wolves coach Mike Buck said Moran’s mix of pitches made it tough for his hitters. “We just tried to make contact,” Buck said. “[Moran] did a great job. She changed speeds well and it took us six innings to figure her out, so give her credit.” Grant built a 2-0 lead entering the bottom of the third inning against Hailey Baker. In the fourth, Baker struck out all three Grant hitters with the help of a variety of off-speed pitches. “My curveball was working today,” Baker said. “It helped keep [the batters] on their toes.” Baker threw a complete game, striking out 11. Grant scored three more runs in the sixth off three Wolves errors and a two-run double to take a 5-0 lead. “You can’t give them three additional outs,” Buck said. “It was uncharacteristic of us.” The Wolves finally solved Moran in the seventh. The Wolves quickly loaded the bases after Kate Didier and Maddie Drain singled and Michelle O’Keefe drew a walk. Rachel Crimaldi hit a bases-clearing triple to bring the Wolves to within two. Alyssa Doomis followed with an RBI single to cut the deficit to one. Emily Widger laid down a sacrifice bunt to put pinchrunner Erin Wing at third, but the Wolves failed to drive in the tying run. “Because we had so many seniors on the team, we didn’t want to give up,” Crimaldi said. “We knew that just because we were down in the seventh [inning], it didn’t mean that we were going to automatically give up.” Grant advances to Saturday’s 11 a.m. regional final, where it will face the winner of Thursday’s McHenry vs. Grayslake North game.
SOFTBALL: CLASS 4A CARY-GROVE REGIONAL
Barrington pitcher too much for Jacobs By ANDY SCHMIDT email@example.com CARY – Jacobs saw Barrington pitcher Keenan Dolezal for two innings Tuesday and had an extra night to try to figure out the Fillies’ right-hander after heavy rain suspended the teams’ Class 4A Cary-Grove Regional semifinal. The fourth-seeded Golden Eagles couldn’t solve Dolezal when play resumed Wednesday, either, as the top-seeded Fillies scored three times in the second inning to come away with a 3-0 victory to end Jacobs’ season. Barrington will play the winner of Thursday’s other regional semifinal between

Thursday’s semifinal Jacobs had its chances late (2) Cary-Grove vs. (3) CL South in the game against Dolezal, inFriday’s championship cluding having runners at sec(1) Barrington vs. Cary-Grove or ond and third with two outs in CL South, 4:30 p.m. the fifth, but Taylor Belo struck out to end the threat.

The game resumed in the nity against Dolezal, who gave bottom of the second inning, up one hit, to Emily Borg in the when Carly Kordich hit a two- second inning Tuesday. “The one inning, we had a run single with the bases loaded off losing pitcher Kelsey walk and a couple hit batters Peters to give the Fillies a 2-0 and then [Barrington] got a
couple of timely hits and that was really the difference in the game,” Jacobs coach Jeremy Bauer said. “Their pitcher kept our hitters off balance and we did not get the timely hit. Give credit to them for having a good gameplan and executing it well with their pitching.” Bauer added that the team’s recent play going into the postseason made him believe that the Golden Eagles (17-14) might be able to make a deep run. “Kelsey had found her mechanics again and pitched really well for us in the last three or four games,” Bauer said. “I thought it was going to give us a chance, and it did. We just couldn’t score the runs.”

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
Prosecutor: Spilled drink led to killing of 2 by Hernandez By DENISE LAVOIE The Associated Press BOSTON – A spilled drink prompted former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez to stalk the stranger who had accidentally bumped into him at a Boston nightclub then open fire on his car, killing him and a second man, prosecutors said Wednesday. “I think I got one in the head and one in the chest,” Hernandez said to a friend as they fled the scene in an SUV, prosecutors told the court at the former star’s arraignment. Hernandez, already charged with killing another man last year, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to seven charges – including two counts of first-degree murder – in the 2012 shooting that killed Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado. A third man was wounded. In the months before the killings, Suffolk County First Assistant District Attorney Patrick Haggan said Hernandez had become increasingly convinced that people “had been testing, trying or otherwise disrespecting him when he frequented nightclubs in the area.” The night de Abreu and Furtado were killed, Haggan said Hernandez and a friend drove from Connecticut to Boston to go to a nightclub called Cure. They were standing at the edge of the dance floor when de Abreu accidentally bumped into Hernandez, smiled at him and did not apologize, according to prosecutors. Haggan said de Abreu and his friends did not appear to recognize Hernandez and had no idea he was upset.
Hernandez became increasingly agitated and told his friend that de Abreu had deliberately bumped into him and “was trying him,” Haggan said. Surveillance video outside the club shows Hernandez pacing back and forth on the sidewalk as his friend tried to calm him down, Haggan said. Hernandez and his friend then crossed the street to another nightclub, where Hernandez thought he saw de Abreu and his friends come in, according to Haggan. Hernandez then told his friend he believed he was “being targeted and being disrespected,” according to Haggan. In fact, de Abreu and his friends had not left the other club. Haggan said Hernandez later drove around with his friend until he saw de Abreu, Furtado and others going to their car. He followed them and pulled up alongside their car at a red light. “At this time, the victims were completely unaware there was any problem with the defendant,” Haggan said. Hernandez leaned out the driver’s side, said “Yo, what’s up now,” followed by a racial slur, then fired at least five shots into the car, killing de Abreu and Furtado, and injuring a man sitting in the back seat, Haggan said. Hernandez’s attorney, Charles Rankin, objected, saying the prosecutor’s account of the shooting was an attempt to poison the jury pool. Clerk Magistrate Gary Wilson dismissed the objection, saying it is standard procedure for prosecutors to describe evidence during arraignments in murder cases.
Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez listens to the prosecution’s summary of facts as he is arraigned on homicide charges Wednesday at Suffolk Superior Court in Boston.

Bears quarterback Jordan Palmer (right) talks with quarterback David Fales as quarterback Jay Cutler approaches Tuesday during organized team activities in Lake Forest.
Palmer plays dual role QB fights for backup job, helps teammates By KEVIN FISHBAIN firstname.lastname@example.org LAKE FOREST – Backup quarterbacks tend to have that coaching trait. Just look at Bears quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh, who spent 11 seasons in the NFL, but started 19 games. Or take last year’s backup Josh McCown, who rejoined the Bears in 2012 when, at the time, he was coaching high school football, and was lauded for the extra work he did with the offense last preseason. Jordan Palmer has thrown 15 NFL passes in five seasons, and gets the first shot to be Jay Cutler’s backup in 2014. How did he spend his offseason? Mentoring young quarterbacks, including Bears draft pick David Fales. Palmer has to balance that innate desire to coach with his own focus on winning the backup job. “You’ve been in the league for as long as I have, your job is to help the young guys. I just did it in a different capacity,” Palmer said of his work with Fales, adding, “My job is to come in here and compete every day and take advantage of the reps I get.”
The ASSOCIATED PRESS IRVING, Texas – Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee could miss the 2014 season after tearing a ligament in his left knee in the first offseason practice. The team hasn’t announced results of an MRI but reported on its website Wednesday that Lee has been told he has a torn ACL. The oft-injured Lee went down during the 11-on-11 portion of Tuesday’s practice. His left leg slid out from under him
as rookie guard Zack Martin was closing in for a block, and Martin rolled over him. With Lee’s injury and the release of franchise sacks leader DeMarcus Ware, the Cowboys could be without their top two defenders after finishing last in the league in total defense a year ago. Contact isn’t allowed in offseason workouts, but blockers frequently engage linemen and linebackers before plays stop in 11-on-11 drills. Lee was already on his way to the ground when Martin lunged over him.
Bears quarterback Palmer spoke with a group of reporters after the Bears’ first organized training activity and some extra post-practice work with the receivers Tuesday. Palmer said he knows he benefits from making sure his teammates are all on the same page with coach Marc Trestman’s offense. “It’s huge because those are the guys that I’m going to be in there with, so I want to give everybody who is going to be in the huddle with me – and everybody who is going to be in the huddle after me – an opportunity to get lined up right, run the right play, make a play, and be able to play fast,” he said. “The biggest thing that these guys do, any team, anywhere, [when you are] putting a lot of stuff in, guys start thinking and they play slower. So my goal is to have these guys
CHICAGO – Moises Sierra drove in the winning run with a single in the ninth inning, and the White Sox beat the Cleveland Indians, 3-2, Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep. The Sox’s Hector Noesi and Cleveland’s T.J. House each came through with dominant starts. The Indians’ Jason Giambi hit his 440th homer, but the Sox came away with their seventh win in 10 games. The Indians had just scored a run in the top of the ninth off Ronald Belisario (3-3) when the Sox answered in the bottom half against Bryan Shaw (1-1). Third baseman Mike Aviles bounced the throw to first on Tyler Flowers’ leadoff grounder. Pinch-runner Leury Garcia stole second and moved up on a fly by Marcus Semien before
Sierra won it with a single to right on a 3-2 pitch, getting mobbed at first base by teammates. The Sox took a 2-1 lead in the eighth when Adam Dunn drove in Gordon Beckham with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly against Cody Allen, but Belisario couldn’t hold it in the ninth. Michael Brantley drove a leadoff single off the pitcher’s right hip, and the problems just mounted from there. The Indians caught a break when Adam Dunn overthrew second after fielding Jason Kipnis’ grounder to first. With two out, Belisario intentionally walked Jason Giambi before Brantley scored on Yan Gomes’ single, barely sliding in ahead of a strike from Sierra in right to tie it at 2-all. The blown save was the third in six chances for Belisario.
The Indians took a 1-0 lead on Giambi’s solo homer off Noesi in the second. But Chicago tied it in the seventh when Adam Dunn singled leading off against T.J. House and scored on a two-out base hit by Marcus Semien against Scott Atchison. Noesi, meanwhile, dominated over 7 1/3 innings but still is seeking his first win in more than two years. He gave up one run and five hits while striking out five without a walk. But the winless streak continued. The right-hander is 0-4 in six starts and 12 appearances this season with Seattle, Texas and the Sox and 0-14 in his past 40 games. His most recent win? That was when he beat Minnesota while with Seattle on May 6, 2012. House gave up one run and five hits in 61/3 innings and struck out eight while walking one.
Cubs avoid being no-hit; scoreless innings streak at 20 email@example.com SAN FRANCISCO – By the time the Cubs headed home from seven days in California it was obvious the sun – or maybe something more psychedelic – was starting to toast their sense of reality. An already surreal tone to the season reached new levels in a matter of days – from the baseball depart-
ment’s mind-spinning decision to let enigmatic drug cheat Manny Ramirez mentor the farm system’s top prospects to the business department’s full-speed-ahead claims of city cooperation on a new and aggressive Wrigley renovation plan, only to get a not-so-fast rebuke from the mayor. And that didn’t even count the 5-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday that
was rolling toward a rare combined no-hitter until .128-hitting catcher John Baker broke it up in the seventh. “I thought we put together some pretty good at-bats,” Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. “We just didn’t generate any runs.” See? Maybe the Cubs got out of the sun just in time. Or not soon enough. Runs? The Cubs didn’t

“You’ve been in the league for as long as I have, your job is to help the young players.”
playing fast, so any way that I can serve them and help, that’s what I’m going to do.” In the preseason, Palmer will lead the second-team offense, which will at times include new wide receivers Josh Morgan and Josh Bellamy, as well as Chris Williams, Eric Weems and Terrence Toliver. Palmer knows he looks better when his receivers run the right routes and make plays in practice. Palmer got to spend some time watching how McCown worked last season, but to help prepare for this offseason, he said he watched every rep from OTAs and minicamp last year – and he noticed that McCown practiced pretty well before he had his impressive season. In between working with his receivers and the rest of the quarterbacks, including his mentee, Fales, Palmer knows he has work to do himself to solidify the No. 2 quarterback job to make the roster, not an unfamiliar position. “I’m just trying to focus on every day and put together a great offseason camp and everything else will take care of itself,” he said.

generate a hit for five innings against Tim Lincecum despite four walks, a hit batter and a blister on his middle finger that developed in the third inning and forced him to the bench after five. Or against reliever George Kontos, who retired all four batters he faced. Or almost anybody else. Baker singled against Jeremy Affeldt in the seventh. Anthony Rizzo singled against Juan Gutierrez in

KINGS ??????? 4 (2OT) X
HAWKS KINGS XXXX LEAD SERIES, 3-2 X-X Hawks’ quick hits WHAT WORKED • Fast start The Blackhawks had home-ice advantage and a raucous crowd to start the game, and they took advantage by scoring 30 seconds after the opening faceoff. Less than three minutes later, Johnny Oduya followed up with a blast in front of the net to give the Hawks a twogoal lead. • Penalty kill The Hawks did plenty of things wrong in Game 5, but no one could point fingers at the penalty-killing unit. A terrible penalty by Niklas Hjalmarsson forced the Hawks to be shorthanded late in the first period, but the Hawks managed to kill the penalty. The same held true after a penalty by Oduya in the second period and a penalty by Brandon Saad in the third. • All things Kane Patrick Kane enjoyed his best game of the series, earning points on each of the Hawks’ first three goals. Kane assisted on Brent Seabrook’s opening blast and helped to create Oduya’s goal by firing a low shot at Jonathan Quick that produced a big rebound. Kane’s stickwork also set up Saad’s first period goal. WHAT DIDN’T WORK
Blackhawks right wing Ben Smith (second from right) celebrates with teammates after scoring a goal against Los Angeles Kings during the third period in Game 5 of the Western Conference final Wednesday night at the United Center.
NO HANDSHAKES Hawks keep hopes alive with dramatic victory CHICAGO – It’s a funny thing about handshakes. Some people love them. It’s a sign of respect, they say. Some people hate them. It’s a big festival of germs, they say. Both sides make good points. But it would have been pretty tough to find anyone within a hundred hockey rinks of the United Center who wanted to watch a handshake before they went to bed Wednesday. A handshake would have represented the end of the Blackhawks’ season. A handshake would have meant some other team in some other city would hoist Lord Stanley’s Cup. The handshake didn’t happen. Not on Wednesday, at least. Not after 37-year-old Michal Handzus rushed toward the net and calmly flipped a backhanded shot past Jonathan Quick, saving the Hawks’ season. The goal at 2:04 of double overtime lifted the Hawks to a 5-4 win against the Los Angeles Kings and forced Game 6 on Friday at Staples Center. Handzus?!? Yes, Handzus. “He’s such a warrior,” Hawks forward Patrick Kane said with a
VIEWS Tom Musick smile during a postgame interview from the bench. “He plays in huge moments. Huge goal.” Huge wow. Personally, I’m a fan of handshakes. Firm grip, look ’em in the eye, as my dad likes to say. But if handshakes aren’t your preference, that’s fine. Fist bumps can be fun. Bowing toward someone is almost as old as dinosaurs, maybe. Head nods can make you feel good. Anyway. The Hawks deserve a handshake or a fist bump or whatever you prefer. Because they could have quit after a 3-1 lead in Game 5 somehow turned into a 4-3 deficit late in the second period. They could have stopped battling, figuring that two championships in the previous four seasons would help get them through the summer.
Instead, the Hawks pressed on like the champs that they are. With the score even at 4 and shots on goal at 44 apiece, Handzus whacked at shot No. 45 and became the hero. Quick slumped to his stomach as fans leaped to their feet. Suddenly, the Hawks are one win away from forcing a winner-take-all Game 7. On home ice. For the chance to go – again – to the Stanley Cup Final. Am I getting ahead of myself? Yes. Am I about to doubt the Hawks after their latest crazy win? No way. As the goal horn blared, Kane and teammate Nick Leddy were the first to greet Handzus. Leddy patted him on the head with his glove. A slew of Hawks players were on the way, storming over the bench to mob their eldest teammate. No handshakes. Only hugs and glove bumps and head pats. As the celebration lingered and Kings players retreated and fans happily tossed red towels on to the ice, Hawks captain Jonathan Toews skated toward his team’s bench and parked right in front of its swinging
door. He waited for his teammates to arrive, and soon they did. Johnny Oduya: High five from Toews. Ben Smith: High five from Toews. Kane: High five from Toews. It kept going, high five after high five, until the only player remaining on the ice besides Toews was Handzus. He was giving a live interview on national TV, which is part of what comes with being a double-overtime hero. As he spoke, the crowd chanted “Zuuuus.” Inside of the locker room after the game, Hawks players said they never entertained doubts despite a third-period deficit that put their season on the brink of elimination. “We knew we weren’t out of it,” Hawks defenseman Duncan Keith said. “It was right there.” The Hawks seized it. Regardless of how this series ends, they deserve our respect. Firm grip. Look ’em in the eye. • Tom Musick can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and on Twitter @tcmusick.
Hawks survive breathtaking overtime in Game 5 By MARK LAZERUS email@example.com CHICAGO – If they do it now, if the Blackhawks somehow come all the way back and return to the Stanley Cup Final and whatever comes after that, this will be the one people remember. This game, this moment, this jaw-dropping, head-spinning display of speed, of skill, of character, of hockey at its finest. Oh, they’ll remember the perfect start and then the disastrous middle. They’ll remember Ben Smith tying the game 77 seconds into the third period, and they’ll darn sure remember Michal Handzus – of all people, Michal Handzus – winning it 2:04 into the second overtime. After all, Handzus’ slick roofed backhander – off Brandon Saad’s third point and Patrick Kane’s fourth assist of the night – is what gave the Hawks the 5-4 win over the Kings, staving off elimination in Game 5 of the Western Conference final and sending the series back to Los Angeles on Friday with the Kings holding a now more precarious 3-2 lead. But more than anything – if the Hawks do manage to come all the way back – people will remember a breathless, exhilarating, exhausting overtime that saw the Hawks and the Kings throw everything they had at each other, which saw Corey Crawford and Jonathan Quick shake off poor starts for spectacular finishes, which saw endless chances and end-to-end action. It was the period of the year in the game of the year. It took just 26 real minutes to play 20 game minutes. “That might have been the greatest overtime I’ve ever seen,” said Hawks coach Joel Quenneville, not a man prone to hyperbole. The high-end play made it sensational, but it was
Kings goalie Jonathan Quick makes a save against Brandon Saad in the second period Wednesday at the United Center. the stakes that made it unforgettable. A Kings goal and the Hawks’ defense of their Stanley Cup championship ends. A Hawks goal, and they get new life as a seemingly insurmountable 3-1 series deficit suddenly looks a lot more surmountable. The crowd gasped with each Kings rush – Craw-
ford with big stops on Marian Gaborik and Jarret Stoll. The crowd roared with each Hawks rush – Quick with big stops on Saad and Kane, the two making magic all night on the second line together. In between, the crowd held its collective breath as the two teams spent nearly no time in the neutral zone, trading chances back and forth. At one point, nearly eight minutes passed without a whistle. “Overtime was crazy,” said Crawford, who said he had “no time to get nervous.” “It was loud in here. Probably the loudest it’s been all year. Our crowd was cheering before whistles to get us going. It was a taut finish to a loose game. Brent Seabrook and Johnny Oduya scored to give the Hawks a 2-0 lead less than four minutes in, but the perfect start appeared to be the beginning of the end. After Stoll and Saad traded goals, Gaborik scored to make it 3-2, still in the first. Then Dustin Brown and Tanner Pearson scored in the second to make it 4-3 Kings – the league-leading fourth time this postseason that the Hawks squandered a two-goal lead. But Duncan Keith, who said the Hawks are trying to focus on the small picture – each game, each period, each shift, not the three straight games needed to win the series – said the Hawks never had any doubt. Never had time to, really. “You’re just playing,” he said. “Just stay positive and have faith in the team and in one another and in yourself. … We know we’ve got a lot of character in this room.” That includes the much-maligned Handzus, a penalty-killing specialist who struggled all season to keep up with Kane on the Hawks’ second line, lost the spot to Andrew Shaw, then returned there for overtime to score the goal of the year, in the game of the year. “That was a fun hockey game to play in,” Crawford said. “Even more fun to win.”
• Protecting the puck In most sports, they’re called turnovers. In hockey, they’re called giveaways. In any event, they’re unwanted, and the Hawks committed far too many errors in Game 5. Hjalmarsson, Seabrook, Kris Versteeg and Duncan Keith all were guilty of bad giveaways that led to added pressure on Corey Crawford in net. • Clearing the crease The Hawks knew the importance of clearing out anyone who loitered in front of Crawford. Yet knowing something and doing something are two different things. With that in mind, no Hawks player bothered to attend to Dustin Brown in front of the Hawks’ net, and Brown quickly punched in a goal to erase the Hawks’ 3-2 lead. • All things Versteeg As the Hawks’ lead disappeared, Versteeg quickly became the No. 1 whipping boy on social media. He deserved it. His careless turnover led to the Kings’ go-ahead goal late in the second period. His best scoring opportunity ended with the puck sailing wide right of the net and slamming against the boards. Not good. STARS OF THE GAME • Brandon Saad Saad is well on his way toward becoming an entrenched member of the Hawks’ core. He was remarkable Wednesday with a goal and an assist. • Patrick Kane Kane’s dazzling skills on offense are well documented, but how about his pesky defense? His takeaway along the boards led to Saad’s goal in the first. • Andrew Shaw Shaw finally found his groove in his third game back from a lengthy injury absence. He was pesky around the net, and his screen helped with Seabrook’s goal. TWEET, TWEET The Madhouse isn’t going down without a fight. Second standing ovation after a stoppage since the [tying] goal. They’re hanging on every shot.
@cmasisak22, Corey Masisak WHAT THEY’RE SAYING “I feel it’s on L.A. Look back against Detroit. We came in here excited about being at home, taking advantage of the home crowd.” – Hawks coach Joel Quenneville on which team felt more pressure entering Game 5 “They’re getting too many shots through, for sure. We can do a better job of positioning. That’s where it all starts, in our own end.” – Hawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson on the Kings’ offensive pressure “I couldn’t answer that. I’m not a doctor.” – Kings coach Darryl Sutter on the status of injured defenseman Robyn Regehr – Compiled by Tom Musick

Morel season winds down The best season for avid morel mushroom hunters is coming to a close. Our crazy northern Illinois weather patterns have blessed the morel hunting community with what may have been the best mushroom collecting in many years. These hard-to-find fungi make an appearance every year for anywhere from two weeks to a little over a month. You may ask why these morels are in such demand. They are incredibly delicious. How good are they? I think the $50- to $60-a-pound price tag explains that well. They don’t last long after picking and they are tough to freeze. You can dehydrate them or buy them by the ounce in dehydrated form, but they don’t taste like the fresh ones. Morels cannot be farmed, they can only be picked wild, just like wild rice. Their spores are spread randomly. You may find them in a spot this year and that spot may not produce a single morel next year. Part of the high price tag can be justified by the scarceness and elusiveness. It takes a lot of work to hunt down a decent stash of these beauties. If you ask a morel aficionado for a good spot to pick them, a blank stare, a head shake and no verbal response is considered a polite answer. A derisive laugh and “not over my dead body” is more than likely the response you’ll receive. The first friends I asked to take me morel hunting told me that if I wanted to go with them, I’d have to be blindfolded as soon as I got in the car to leave their house. I laughed hard when I heard that. They didn’t laugh. They were totally serious. I think this may be the last weekend you’ll be able to find any wild morels to pick for yourself this year. They’ve been popping up in big numbers since the first week of the month. Mushroom hunters will tell you that they appear around Easter or Mother’s Day or when the forsythias begin to

The Pacers’ Roy Hibbert is guarded by the Heat’s Chris Bosh in the first half of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference final Wednesday in Indianapolis.
EASTERN CONFERENCE FINAL: PACERS 93, HEAT 90 – HEAT LEAD, 3-2
Pacers follow George’s lead By MICHAEL MAROT The Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS – Paul George scored 31 of his 37 points in the second half Wednesday night and almost single-handedly kept the Indiana Pacers alive in the Eastern Conference final with a 93-90 victory over the Miami Heat. The Pacers still trail, 3-2, in the best-of-seven series. Game 6 will be played Friday night in Miami. It took a frantic effort just to extend the series, even with the foul-plagued LeBron James held to just seven points in 23 minutes. Chris Bosh led the Heat with 20 points missed a potential goahead 3-pointer in the closing seconds. Indiana turned a 50-41 deficit into a 64-57 lead after three, then led by as much as 11 in the fourth. But Miami’s lastditch rally made it 91-90 with 16 seconds to go before Indiana held on.
Miami failed to clinch its fourth straight Eastern Conference title. The Pacers played like a desperate team trying to save their season. They chased shooters all over the floor, ran down loose balls, even put themselves in harm’s way. Lance Stephenson appeared to hurt his left shoulder in the third quarter after a hard fall and still finished the game. But hard falls and tough plays were a theme all night for a team that had been roundly criticized for its lack of effort in Monday night’s loss. “We just played. Our backs are against the wall right now so that’s all we can do,” George said. “We were in a position that if we lost this game, we’re going home so I think that was in the backs of everybody’s minds.” Until George amped it up in the second half, it looked like the Heat would close out the series with a fourth straight win.
LOS ANGELES – Shelly Sterling is reviewing bids from five groups interested in buying the Los Angeles Clippers, and a deal could be struck before next week’s owners meeting provided both she and her estranged husband Donald relinquish total ownership in the team. A person with knowledge of the negotiations told The Associated Press on Wednesday if an agreement to sell is reached before next Tuesday, the league’s owners wouldn’t meet in New York to vote on terminating Donald Sterling’s ownership. The individual wasn’t authorized to speak publicly because the NBA is not commenting on the process. The individual wouldn’t specify the interested buyers, but said they are major players with considerable financial means. The person told the AP the sale price “appears to be increasing to an unbelievable number,” and that it could soar past $1.5 to $2 billion, and possibly more.
Buccaneers, Man U owner Glazer dies at 85 TAMPA, Fla. – Malcolm Glazer, a self-made billionaire who shunned the spotlight while leading the takeover of English soccer’s Manchester United and transforming the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers into Super Bowl champions, died Wednesday. He was 85. The reclusive Palm Beach businessman had been in failing health since April 2006 when a pair of strokes left him with impaired speech and limited mobility in his right arm and leg. He was not involved in dayto-day operations of either of his sports franchises and was rarely spotted at games in recent years, instead remaining at his mansion in South Florida while entrusting leadership of the Bucs to three of six children, sons Bryan, Joel and Ed. – The Associated Press

Nothing doing: Serena, Venus out By HOWARD FENDRICH PARIS – Wind was whipping, rain was falling, and thick gray clouds overhead were foreboding as Serena Williams double-faulted, then raised her hands in despair and wailed, “I can’t serve!” As if to prove the point, Williams double-faulted again moments later, before pushing a routine backhand wide to get broken at love. Truth is, the French Open’s defending champion couldn’t do much properly on this particular afternoon, absorbing the most lopsided loss of her 288-match Grand Slam career. Unable to figure out how to get herself going or counter her unheralded opponent’s aggressive game, Williams was beaten, 6-2, 6-2, Wednesday by 35th-ranked Garbine Muguruza of Spain in the second round. “Nothing really worked,” said Williams, whose older sister Venus also lost. “I don’t know anything that actually worked.” Ever since last week’s draw, there was talk about a possible allWilliams match in the third round, which would have been their first Grand Slam meeting since the 2009 Wimbledon final. So much for that: Exactly one minute before Serena’s match began on Court Suzanne Lenglen, the 29th-seeded Venus’ 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 defeat against 56th-ranked Anna Schmiedlova of Slovakia wrapped up in the main stadium. “I felt like this was a match that
Serena Williams covers her face after missing a return during her secondround French Open loss against Garbine Muguruza on Wednesday in Paris. I was most likely going to win,” Venus said. “I don’t know how Serena felt, but I’m sure she feels like that every time she goes on the court. So I think our expectation was to play in the next round.” Instead of the 25th Williams vs. Williams encounter on tour, it’ll be the 20-year-old Muguruza vs. 19-year-old Schmiedlova. Serena’s exit came a day after a loss by No. 2 Li Na, the first time in the Open era, which began in 1968, that the top two women were gone before the third round at any major. “Nobody’s safe,” summed up Patrick Mouratoglou, the coach who began working with Serena after the

Dear Dr. K: My 21-monthold daughter has eczema. Is there any way to treat this condition without steroids? Dear Reader: Eczema, also called atopic dermatitis, is more than just dry skin. It is an inflammatory skin disease that often begins in infancy as an intensely itchy rash. Scratching leads to further irritation. The injured skin becomes chronically inflamed and more vulnerable to infection. Airborne allergens can make eczema worse. Reducing your daughter’s exposure to these triggers could improve her eczema and reduce her need for treatment: • Remove carpets and heavy draperies from her sleeping area. • Wash her bedding frequently in hot water. • Clean and vacuum frequently. • Regularly bathe pets and keep them out of her bedroom. • Avoid foods (such as milk, eggs, soy or wheat) if they trigger your daughter’s eczema. Skin affected by eczema loses water easily. Keep your daughter’s skin hydrated by soaking it in warm (not hot) baths. Don’t use soaps and shampoos, which worsen dry skin, more than
ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff twice a week. Gently pat (don’t rub) her skin dry with a soft towel, then promptly and generously apply thick moisturizers with a low water content to lock in the moisture. Choose creams without fragrances, dyes or preservatives. Antihistamines can help to control the ferocious itch, but they can cause drowsiness. Giving your daughter an antihistamine at bedtime might help relieve her itch and help her sleep during an uncomfortable flare-up. If these measures don’t control your daughter’s eczema, her doctor likely will recommend a topical corticosteroid to apply to her skin. Corticosteroid creams and ointments effectively reduce inflammation. They are one of the most important types of medicines to be developed in the past 50 years. Eczema is just one of the many diseases and conditions that can be effectively treated by these medicines. Corticosteroids often are called just “steroids” by
doctors. But don’t be confused: These inflammationfighting hormones are different from the “steroids” that body builders use. Corticosteroid creams can gradually thin the skin and cause small blood vessels to break if used on the face. So use them with caution, and in low doses, on the face – as directed by your daughter’s doctor. You might have heard corticosteroids can stunt a child’s growth and thin the bones. That’s an issue with corticosteroid pills (or injections), but not with corticosteroid creams and ointments – unless extraordinary amounts are used over much of the body. As with any medicine, corticosteroids have both benefits and risks. You should discuss with your daughter’s doctor what the balance of benefits and risks is likely to be in her case, and I’m sure you’ll be able to find the right treatment. Fortunately, your daughter has available effective treatments that had not yet been developed two generations ago. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at www.askdoctork.com or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

BEASTIE BOYS’ AD-ROCK TESTIFIES: ‘WE LIKE SPORTS’
NEW YORK – Beastie Boys rapper Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz had an easy answer for a New York lawyer asking why the hip-hop group refuses to endorse products but licensed its music for a watch company’s snowboarding video. Horovitz told a lawyer for beverage-maker Monster Energy Co. that, “We like sports.” He said snowboarding, skateboarding and surfing are all hits with the band he started with two others in the 1980s when he was a teenager. The testimony came Wednesday at a trial stemming from a lawsuit the band brought against the Corona, California-based Monster. The company admits it violated the Beastie Boys’ copyrights by including its songs in a video that was online for five weeks. But it insists it should owe no more than $125,000. The band wants over $2 million.

One Direction’s lawyers looking into leaked video NEW YORK – A representative for One Direction said the band’s lawyers are dealing with a video showing two band members smoking what the singers referred to as an “illegal substance.” British tabloid The Daily Mail posted the clip Tuesday of Zayn Malik smoking and speaking with Louis Tomlinson, who is filming the video. “This matter is in the hands of our lawyers,” their publicist said Wednesday. In the video, 22-year-old Tomlinson says “joint lit, happy days,” and asks his bandmate, “What do you think Zayn about that kind of content?” The 21-year-old Malik responds: “Very controversial.” The video led some angry fans to post photos of them burning One Direction’s concert tickets. The platinum-selling group has achieved worldwide success since debuting in 2011, thanks to a feverish fan base made up of young girls. Their hits include “What Makes You Beautiful,” ‘’Best Song Ever” and “Story of My Life.” The group was set to perform Wednesday night in Sunderland, United Kingdom.
Stars campaign to keep kids out of media LOS ANGELES – Suri Cruise did not ask for fame. Yet she’s been chased by cameras practically from birth, with no choice in the matter, because her parents are Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. Kristen Bell is exasperated just thinking about it. “Suri Cruise is not fictional. She’s a real little girl ... and it’s just not fair,” Bell said. The 33-year-old actress and mother has been leading a growing movement among Hollywood stars aimed at reducing media demand for paparazzi images of celebrity kids and she’s using the plight of 8-year-old Suri as an example. Launched in January, Bell’s No Kids Policy gained almost instant traction by hitting the entertainment media where it hurts: celebrity access, which translates into viewers, readers and profits. Bell got a bunch of stars, from Jennifer Aniston to Jennifer Lawrence, who agreed to decline interviews with TV and text outlets that use paparazzi photos or video of children that were taken without their parents’ consent. Then she met with entertainment media executives and told them either agree to her No Kids Policy or celebs will stay away. Now, through upcoming media interviews and meetings with “mommy bloggers,” Bell is taking her cause direct to consumers, asking them to consider the circumstances around the starry images that beckon at grocery check stands. Bell and her famous colleagues can’t outright refuse interviews; contracts typically obligate them to promote their movies and shows. But they can be picky about which outlets they’ll work with. Star-driven shows and magazines such as “Entertainment Tonight” and Us Weekly, which rely on images from freelance photographers and independent photo agencies to help illustrate their stories, say it’s easy to support Bell’s effort. “Entertainment Tonight” executive producer Brad Bessey said he would not use paparazzi-generated photos of celebrity kids under any circumstances, while Us Weekly editor-in-chief Mike Steele might consider such images in cases of breaking news involving the children. Steele said the new policy hasn’t impacted editorial operations at the magazine, other than requiring an extra step to get consent from celebrity parents before publishing images of their kids. Some agree and some don’t, he said. “I’ll argue until my dying day that my daughter should not be affected by my career choice,” Bell said.
LAS VEGAS – Eva Longoria’s female-focused steakhouse has closed less than two years after opening in a swanky shopping center on the Las Vegas Strip. Officials with parent company Landry’s said SHe by Morton’s shut down effective Sunday. Company executives did not immediately return messages seeking further explanation of the closure. The steakhouse ran into trouble with health inspectors last month, when the Southern Nevada Health District temporarily closed the restaurant. Inspectors gave the restaurant numerous demerits, mostly related to keeping food at proper temperatures and maintaining accurate thermometers. The eatery quickly reopened with a grade ‘A’ from the health district. Longoria partnered with Morton’s steakhouse to open SHe in late 2012. It was inside the Crystals shops at the Aria casino and featured

LOS ANGELES – Paul Walker’s daughter will live with a nanny and her mother, an attorney told a court commissioner who dismissed guardianship proceedings over the teenager Wednesday. Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner David J. Cowan dismissed a guardianship case over Meadow Rain Walker after hearing from Amy Nieman, an attorney he appointed to represent the 15-year-old. Nieman said there was no need for court oversight because there was an adequate plan for the teenager’s care, including help from a close friend of the late actor who has been appointed by another court to make sure Meadow Walker receives proper care. Meadow Walker’s mother, Rebecca Soteros, has been spending time with her daughter while receiving treatment for alcoholism and is currently sober, Nieman said. There are “a lot of layers of support for Meadow,” she said. The estate of the “Fast & Furious” franchise star has purchased a home where Meadow Walker and her mother can live, Nieman said. A nanny who has cared for the teenager for roughly two years is currently living with Meadow Walker, the attorney said. Paul Walker’s mother, Cheryl Walker, petitioned for a guardianship over her granddaughter, but she later asked to dismiss it, citing Meadow Walker’s wishes. Cheryl Walker’s attorney Steven Bledsoe said Wednesday that his client accepted the arrangement “in the absence of a better plan.”

Suburban developer puts emphasis on townhouses Jerry Kuyper PALATINE – Jeff Benach, co-principal of Lexington Homes, has a lot of trust in townhouses. Several years ago, his company, which is based in Chicago, began planning to build 149 townhouses at Lexington Park in Des Plaines. Of the original 149 put on the market in 2013, two remain to be sold. In other words, sales today are at 147. In late 2013, Benach’s company opened sales of 51 townhouses at Lexington Hills in Palatine.
“We have sold 18 or 19 of those, and we should be sold out there by the end of the year,” he said. This year, Lexington plans to build 15 townhouses at another site in Palatine. It is called Lexington Oaks. Benach anticipates sales to go fast. “We should be sold out there within a year, too,” he said. “The demand for our type of housing is high.” Ground was broken this month for the townhouses that will be ready for delivery in late 2014. “Our first units will be completed in and ready for move-in by mid-December and, depending how quickly they sell, the rest should be ready for delivery in the spring of

2015,” Benach said. “Maybe earlier.” In the past four decades, Lexington Homes has built more than 40,000 homes in Chicago and surrounding suburbs, including in McHenry County. In 2006 and 2007, Lexington developed communities in Crystal Lake and McHenry under the Concord Homes name. Benach has plans for more townhouse communities stretching into Chicago’s northwest suburbs. “Oh yeah, we like the north and northwest suburbs,” he said. “We have five or six pieces [potential projects] within 15 minutes of this [Palatine] area.”

Developer attributes popularity of project to its design, location • TOWNHOUSES Continued from page E1 Benach attributes high interest and sales to the design of the townhouses and their location. He noted these factors appeal to a mix of buyers, from first-time buyers to families with children and to empty-nesters. Benach explained why he has such high hopes for the most recent company development at Lexington Oaks. Located on Route 14, a quarter-mile west of Smith Road and a half-mile east of Quentin Road, the development is on a wooded site near downtown, less than a mile from Palatine’s central business district and the suburb’s Metra station. “Lexington Oaks’ close proximity to downtown Palatine provides an urban convenience of being close to shopping and restaurants in a suburban setting,” Benach said. “Combine that with Palatine’s hometown charm and the almost nonexistent crime rate, and you have a perfect location for young couples looking to move from the city or empty-nesters looking to downsize.” The community offers two-story townhouses in two floor plan designs with three bedrooms, two-and-one-half baths, basements, backyard decks and two-car garages. One plan features a
An eating area blends in with open living space in Lexington Homes townhouse designs. first-floor master bedroom suite and a laundry room on the main floor. Priced from the $330,000s, the living areas measure 1,684 to 1,817 square feet. Square footage and prices are similar to those at Lexington Hills, where prices range from $293,900 to $354,990 and are 1,711 to 1,900 square feet in size. “The first-floor master suite has been a big draw for a variety of buyers,” Benach said. “While it’s natural for empty-nesters to prefer this
layout, we’re also seeing younger families and couples drawn to the convenience of having the master bedroom on the same floor as the main living space. “All of Lexington Homes’ designs, including the two at Lexington Oaks, are created to adapt to changing lifestyles and meet the needs of buyers no matter what stage of life they are in.” Both floor plans at Lexington Oaks are designed to use space more efficiently, Benach pointed out, and provide
open, flexible areas so buyers can adapt their living spaces to meet specific needs. “While each plan features a full basement that can be finished, both also include additional spaces that add versatility and value to the home,” Benach said. For example, the company’s Hickory plan, which includes a master suite with a walk-in closet and private master bath on the main floor, also features two bedrooms and a loft on the second floor. “It is a huge loft,” Benach said, and the area could be put to use as a separate living space. “The loft provides the perfect amount of space that can be turned into whatever meets a buyer’s current needs, be it a work-out area, home office or study area, play room for young kids or a gaming-media room for older kids,” Benach added. Additionally, the Hickory’s open floor plan features a great room with a “sweeping” two-story ceiling that extends above part of the kitchen. “This design also makes it easy to communicate with whoever is in the loft,” Benach said. The Cypress plan, in which all three bedrooms are on the second floor, offers an upstairs laundry room near the bedrooms. “The location of the laundry room has become a key
feature in home design and adds to the overall functionality of the home,” Benach said. “It is very conveniently located on the second floor. Buyers do not want to have to trek down to the basement to do laundry, as that is not where the laundry is being generated. The laundry rooms in Lexington Oaks homes are located in more convenient areas and offer generous space for sorting, hanging and folding clothes.” As in the Hickory plan, the Cypress also includes a master suite. “It is a large suite that provides a private sanctuary with an oversized walk-in closet and master bath,” he said. Benach said Lexington Homes is known for including higher-end finishes in its town houses that most builders would consider upgrades. At Lexington Oaks, for example, both floor plans include hardwood flooring throughout the entire main floor. Kitchen countertops are granite, including the kitchen island, which provides seating space for eating and entertaining. Master bathrooms feature a granitetopped double-bowl vanity and soaking tub and/or walkin shower. Lexington Oaks homes include energy-efficient stainless steel GE appliances and 42-inch upper kitchen cabinets.
A soft sales approach began at Lexington Oaks shortly before Christmas. One townhouse was sold. “But today we have opened sales in full force instead of just part-time,” he said. “We have a lot of interest. The empty-nesters like the master suite on the main floor, and the family buyers like the huge loft and the conveniences provided.” The same soft sales approach was used at Lexington Hills in 2013. “We did a soft launch in September and sales took off,” Benach said. “I believe the quick sales at Lexington Hills showed signs that the housing market was turning a corner. We even had a handful of buyers who bought a home at Lexington Hills before selling their current home. That hasn’t happened for years, and it’s a sign that buyers’ confidence in the housing market is continuing to increase.” Benach said the same theme applies at Lexington Oaks. Buyer confidence in the housing market remains strong, he said. Close to downtown, recreational activities such as biking and hiking on trails are adjacent to the development. The community is in the Community Consolidated School District 15. For information, call 847-459-9900 or visit www. lexingtonchicago.com.

Jack Youngblood, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame who played for the Los Angeles Rams for 14 years, said, “I visualize things in my mind before I have to do them. It is like having a mental workshop.” The most skillful bridge players can get inside the minds of their opponents. They can visualize exactly what that player would do from various holdings. Today’s deal is an example of this. South is in three notrump. West leads the heart three and declarer calls for dummy’s ive. What should East do? The auction was straightforward. South did not like to open one no-trump without a heart stopper, but the bid gave as accurate a description of his hand as possible. Yes, he might have opened one diamond, planning to rebid one spade over a one-heart response, but partner would have had a much fuzzier picture of South’s hand. The only makable game here is four spades, which is tough to reach. Let’s return to East’s predicament. If South has ace-doubleton of hearts, East
must put in his 10, inessing against partner (this week’s theme). But if South has jackdoubleton, East must win with his king. Which is correct? Get into South’s mind. If he had ace-doubleton, which heart would he have played from the board? Right -- the queen. He would have hoped the opening lead was away from the king and tried to take a second heart trick. When he does not do that, he cannot have the heart ace. So East should conidently put up his king, expecting to win the trick. And ive heart tricks later, the contract is down.

TODAY - Follow the vision you’ve been harboring. Channel your intensity and make full use of your concentration and energy in order to progress this year. You will be perceptive when it comes to ﬁnding valuable opportunities. Success will be yours if you persevere. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Use a little restraint in social situations. You should work hard to be more tactful and diplomatic. You will appear foolish or insensitive if you try to be the life of every party. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It’s a good time to refresh your surroundings. Let those affected by your decisions have a say. Don’t make any oral agreements without doing thorough research. Protect your savings. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- An unexpected partnership will provide you with a way to increase your income. Keep an open mind if someone offers to help you with your work. Expand a new concept of yours. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don’t take any risks with your ﬁnances or career. You will encounter problems if your scheme backﬁres. Do your homework before making a move that could cost you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You will feel the need to experiment with new ideas and projects. Others may not be in agreement with your plans, but you will make gains if you let your imagination run free. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Examine an investment idea, but avoid getting involved in a joint venture. Your reputation will escalate if you are loyal and giving. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Someone close to you is unclear about your feelings. Speak your mind and say what is in your heart. It’s not fair to leave him or her guessing. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your future will improve once you share your ideas with an inﬂuential person. Don’t be shy. You will be obliged to back up your plans with facts, so be prepared. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Your self-conﬁdence needs a boost. Spend time with children or close friends and engage in physical challenges that will get your motor running. Give yourself a chance to have some fun. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You will lose respect if you allow others to take advantage of you. Don’t fall short because you put your needs last. Stand up for your beliefs. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- An old partner is likely to want to reconnect. Your charm and attractiveness will stir up some interest with new and old acquaintances. Plan to socialize. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your career path is questionable. If you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, consider what you do well and ﬁnd a way to make it more engaging. Explore new possibilities.

Savoy Brown was formed in London, England in 1965 by guitarist Kim Simmonds. Originally a UK version of a Chicago blues band, the group developed into a classic and highly original rock band but always managed to keep its blues roots intact. Kim Simmonds has always led the band and is considered one of the best and most underrated blues/rock guitarists in the world today. The ﬁrst album Shakedown in 1967 on Decca records was one of the major UK releases that helped spark the British Blues Boom. Later albums such as Hellbound Train on London records in the 1970’s cracked the Billboard Top 40 charts making Savoy Brown one of the very few blues bands ever to have such commercial success. Recent albums such as Voodoo Moon, Songs From The Road, and their latest, Goin’ To The Delta, still top the sales for Blues albums. Kim Simmonds and Savoy Brown have carved a special niche within the music world and have become one of the longest, continuously running blues/rock bands in the world today.

CINDERELLA’S TOM KEIFER McHenry’s Fiesta Days 5 p.m. July 12
SUMMER FESTIVALS YOUR GUIDE TO
11 Lee DeWyze Lake in the Hills Rockin’ Ribfest 9 p.m. July 11
By JAMI KUNZER
Scrounge for candy at a parade. Sail a cardboard boat. Or sing along to hits, such as 1983’s “Sister Christian.” Whether it’s a family tradition, a reunion celebration or your first taste of what McHenry County has to offer, you’re bound to find reason to smile this summer as a season of diversified festivals gets underway. This is an area known for one of the longest-running – Harvard’s Milk Days – and one of the largest – McHenry’s Fiesta Days (featuring Night Ranger this year) – festivals. Throw in festivals such as Crystal Lake’s Lakeside Fest, known as “The Granddaddy of All Festivals” and celebrating the city’s centennial this year, as well as the entertainment-packed Rockin’ Rotary Ribfest in Lake in the Hills and Algonquin Founders’ Days, and you’ve got quite a lineup. It’s an area that boasts musically themed celebrations of everything from Mozart to folk to jazz in Woodstock to the Blues in McHenry to the 1980s, well, pretty much everywhere. You’ll find the well-known America’s Cardboard Cup Regatta in Crystal Lake and several Living History events offered through the McHenry County Conservation District, as well as the Illinois Railway Museum’s attractions in Union. And this year brings even more variety with the addition of a few more sporting activities, in which participants will bike, run, swim, even throw a hatchet. “There are just a plethora of festivals, outdoor events for people all through the summer,” said Jaki Berggren, executive director of the McHenry County Convention and Visitors Bureau, which for the first time is offering an interactive guide on its website at www.visitmchenrycounty.com. Through computers and mobile devices, visitors can view a list of events and click directly to websites for more information. “Depending on their interests, there are sports, food, kids’ stuff, parades, fireworks, pretty much anything all summer long,” Berggren said. Aside from the usual festivals, kicking off June 6 with Harvard’s chock-full Milk Days, Berggren highlighted a few new activities.
NIGHT RANGER McHenry’s Fiesta Days 9:15 p.m. July 12
The Richmond Fine Arts Festival (June 28-29) featuring 90 artists will coincide with the village’s third annual Spring Wine Walk. Among several athletic outings are the 3Disciplines Illinois Triathlon Championship on June 22 in Crystal Lake and a Lake in the Hills Triathlon on June 15. A Rundezvous Race on July 12 in Crystal Lake will challenge outdoorsy types on survival skills, such as archery, water carrying, log splitting and fire starting. And in its second year, the July 20 Tour De Crystal Lake will bring international pro cyclists to downtown Crystal Lake for a race with speeds exceeding 35 mph. Come for the festival, the race, the event, and you’ll discover more.
“Once they’re here, we have restaurants and great places for them to stay and enjoy the outdoors. Boat up and down the Fox River, take a drive in the country. The farmers markets are all open as of the beginning of June. Agritourism starts in August and goes through the fall. That’s definitely one of the reasons they’re going to come.” That and, of course, the bands. It wouldn’t be summer in McHenry County without performances by popular bands, such as Modern Day Romeos and 7th Heaven. Along with Night Ranger, McHenry’s Fiesta Days brings Cinderella’s Tom Keifer to town, and “American Idol” winner Lee DeWyze will perform at Lake in the Hills’ Rockin’ Rotary Ribfest.

New soulful pop group features Crystal Lake teen By JAMI KUNZER firstname.lastname@example.org Thinking realistically, Briana Marsalla set out after high school to major in broadcasting. But her dream always has been to perform and make music. The 19-yearold Crystal Lake South graduate is getting her chance. Marsalla, a student at McHenry County College, was selected through an audition process in Chicago to become part of the new female group, Affiniti, also featuring Victoria Massey-Lorick, Keeley Morris and Channel Glover. Described as a soulful pop group, the group will release its first single, “CPR,” May 31 at a private event hosted by KTF Musik, a music production team in Chicago. All girls have solos in the song, and they sing the chorus together, Marsalla said. The company signed the four girls with a specific style and songs in mind. One of Marsalla’s friends came across the company’s flier announcing its search for members of a new pop
group and suggested she audition. “Being an artist is not an easy journey, but Briana has been very dedicated to rehearsals, vocal sessions, studio sessions and dance rehearsals while being a student,” said Joi Wynn, the engineer and producer for KTF Musik. “We are definitely blessed to have her, along with the other ladies to fulfill the vision of KTF Musik.” The youngest in the new group, Marsalla said she’s performed in 32 musicals, including many at Crystal Lake South. “My whole life I was like, ‘I’m going to major in musical theater and try out for Broadway and TV,’” Marsalla said. “That would be my dream, but just thinking realistically I decided to major in sports broadcasting with a minor in musical theater. “Maybe something awesome will happen with this.” Coming together as strangers, the members of the group have become friends, Marsalla said. “I would say us girls just really clicked right away, even though none of

us knew each other,” she said. “We always have a fun time together. ... We’re learning how the industry works and becoming better singers and all-around performers.” The group doesn’t simply focus on singing, she said. It’s also about dance. “We don’t want to be stereotyped to any certain girl group,” she said. “I really like all types of music. I like hip hop a lot, but I really think a lot of the girls and I look up to Beyoncé, because she’s an awesome singer and dancer and performer. “We don’t want to be just a singing group. We want people to think of us an all-around great performing group.” The group’s single will be available and the group’s website, www.affinitimusik.com, up and running June 1.

JOLIE’S A FUN HERO-VILLAIN By JOCELYN NOVECK The Associated Press Maybe it’s too soon to say the tide has shifted definitively. But it’s certainly been a unique time for fairy-tale villains. After hundreds of years of moral clarity, suddenly we’re getting a new look at these evil creatures, who are actually turning out to be complex beings, and not that bad at all. Really, they’ve just been misunderstood. (And, by the way, those charming princes? Highly overrated.) The most obvious recent example is “Frozen,” the animated Disney blockbuster that showed us how the Snow Queen, long portrayed as an icy-hearted villain, was actually a tragic victim of circumstance, with a pure and loving heart. And now we have “Maleficent,” which tells us that one of the most evil characters in all of pop culture is equally vulnerable and misunderstood. Plus, she’s gorgeous. Duh. She’s Angelina Jolie. All this is a rather seismic development in fairytale-dom. There are numerous versions of “Sleeping Beauty,” stemming back even before Charles Perrault’s from 1697, but the fairy who casts an angry spell on the baby princess, dooming her to prick her finger, has always been, well, just nasty. But now, 55 years after Disney introduced the character named Maleficent in its 1959 classic film – and colored her skin an eerie green – the studio is back with a live-action (not to mention 3D) Maleficent who’s more superheroine than evil fairy. Think Maleficent by
“MALEFICENT” STARRING: Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley
PLOT: A vindictive fairy is driven to curse an infant princess only to realize the child may be the only one who can restore peace. RATED: PG for sequences of fantasy action and violence, including frightening images. RUNNING TIME: 1 hour, 37 minutes way of Lara Croft. And though Maleficent is no longer green-skinned, it’s hard not to think of another green-skinned villainess who’s also been rehabilitated, by means of the durable Broadway hit “Wicked”: the witch Elphaba from “The Wizard of Oz,” who, it turns out, we just didn’t know enough about. And so it is in “Maleficent,” in which director Robert Stromberg and screenwriter Linda Woolverton take us back to the fairy’s youth to better understand her. She’s a plucky young thing with lovely wings and bright pink lipstick, which will turn blood-red when she becomes an adult (the fairy world clearly isn’t lacking for cosmetics.) One day she meets a young man from that other, darker world, where humans live. The two form a strong bond. But the ugliest human emotions – jealousy and ambition – will intervene. Young Stefan will grow into the power-hungry older Stefan (the wild-eyed South African actor Sharlto Copley.) And his stunning betrayal of Maleficent will instantly harden her, turning her into the villainess we recognize. Alas, the story’s still all about a guy,
in the end. But we digress. “Maleficent” is surely targeted to the same audience – young and female – which has so lovingly embraced “Frozen” and its appealing message of female solidarity and empowerment. But “Frozen” felt clever, charming, and fresh. “Maleficent,” less so. Part of this is due, paradoxically, to Jolie’s star wattage. Don’t get us wrong: she’s the best thing about the movie, and always worth watching. But it blunts the effectiveness of the narrative if we can never quite believe Maleficent is bad. That’s because we know she’s essentially good, and she seems to know that we know it. You can see it in the upturned wrinkle of her mouth. And frankly, the other characters are simply not that interesting – Stefan, but also Elle Fanning’s Aurora, or “Sleeping Beauty.” The best scenes Aurora has, in fact, are when she’s a gurgling baby and then, adorably, a toddler, played by none other than 5-year-old Vivienne Jolie-Pitt. (In the movie’s one laugh-out-loud moment, Maleficent tells Aurora: “I don’t like children.”) But Fanning as Aurora is too boringly sweet – especially compared with the fabulous-in-every-way Maleficent, with her blazing lips, fashionable black headgear and exaggerated cheekbones, not to mention her way around a quip. In the end, “Maleficent” is fun for its appealing visuals – especially in the forest – and for watching Jolie. But that’s not enough to make the whole film interesting. As the minutes tick by, you might even start feeling a bit like Sleeping Beauty herself comes to feel: drowsy.
