Graduation Budgets gap persists crunched Local districts say poverty, cultural issues explain disparity in rates for minority students

in county Taxing bodies collecting less as property values plummet By EMILY K. COLEMAN Plummeting property values are lowering the ceiling on how much property taxes local taxing bodies can collect, often leading to less money in crucial funds, forcing cuts or leading governments to look for revenue in other places. District 12 in Johnsburg struggled with its finances for years before it hit the ceiling on its education fund this year, which contributed to the elimination of the equivalent of 14 full-time teaching and administrative positions. More cuts are on the table as it moves through its budgeting process. Despite this, the School District 12 Board expects to run a deficit in its education fund and the district will need to borrow to get through the

year, Superintendent Dan Johnson said. The city of Harvard had to cut 20 percent of its workforce over the past several years, leaving its public works department with three employees. “[Public works] wasn’t doing anything,” City Administrator David Nelson said. “We were just maintaining. We were just fixing when things break. You can do that in the short run, but you can’t do that forever.” How much money most taxing entities receive each year is governed by two tax caps. One limits the overall amount governments – those that don’t have home-rule authority like the cities of McHenry and Crystal Lake do – can raise their property

ewer minority students are receiving their high school diploma on time than other classmates, despite area high schools graduating all students at higher rates than the national average. The graduation disparity locally mirrors a national trend that shows black and Hispanic students lagging behind white and Asian students when it comes to graduating in four years, a review of state and national data shows. It’s an issue familiar to area districts that serve diverse populations and grapple with achievement gaps between minority and white students throughout various grade levels. But the disparity has more to do with poverty than race, said Ben Churchill, the assistant superintendent for District 300’s high schools. “It’s about income,” he said. “Kids from impoverished families learn fewer words in preschool years. The vocabulary deficit stays with them throughout high school ... That all ties into students from low-income families being less likely to graduate on time.” The Carpentersville-based school district last year graduated 72.7 percent of its black students and 79 percent of its Hispanic students, while 94.3 percent of white students and all of its Asian students graduated on time, state data shows. Similar differences between demographics exist beyond Carpentersville. Recently released federal data that showed the United States’ graduation rate reached 80 percent for the first time in history drew praise from Education

By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO WOODSTOCK – A 32-yearold Woodstock man was charged Friday with attempted murder after police said he sprayed a female acquaintance with accelerant and lit her on fire. Woodstock police learned through an investigation that Anthony D. Cohn sprayed the 36-year-old acquaintance with accelerant and ignited Anthony D. it following an Cohn argument late Thursday afternoon near the 100 block of North Seminary Avenue, said Chief Robert Lowen. The investigation started af-

ter police and firefighters were called at 7:54 a.m. Friday to the 200 block of South Eastwood Drive, Woodstock, for a 36-yearold female needing treatment for burns to her back, Lowen said. Witnesses at the scene on Thursday helped put out the flames on the female, but she suffered serious burns. She was transported to Centegra Hospital – Woodstock on Friday for treatment. “They were friends, and she wasn’t going along with his wishes, so he sprayed accelerant on her and [lit] her on fire,” Lowen said. Police charged Cohn with attempted murder and aggravated battery, both Class X felonies. He was taken to the McHenry County Jail, where he awaits a bond hearing.

Introducing … the Lord of the Mulch! I have written previously about my shortcomings as my wife’s Junior Assistant Apprentice Gardener. Yes, I have pulled up tulip bulbs that I thought were weeds with swollen roots. I have mutilated bushes in an effort to sculpt them into shapes of Disney characters. And I once figured out a way to destroy an entire lettuce crop with a single swoop of concentrated lawn fertilizer. I am on weedwacker probation due to incidental contact with iris foliage and grounded from the lawn edger due to overzealous depth and width application. I am persona non grata with the hedge clippers and I’ve been given the heave hoe from long handled cultivating tools. Thus, I have been relegated to wheelbarrow patrol, weeding driveway cracks and searching for my wife’s lost trowel. That, and I regularly pull compost turning duty. However, on the bright side, I am almost totally entrusted with the grass cutting, with the exception of constant reminders to rotate the direction of the cutting, instructions to adjust the blade height to the specific needs of the

JUST HUMOR ME Michael Penkava grass, directions on whether to bag or mulch and supplications to not move slower than the grass can grow. Other than that, I am completely on my own. Be that as it may, I still would like to have a semblance of expertise in some aspect of gardening. I know I will always be plodding in the shadow of my master gardener wife, but it sure would be nice to be put in charge of some horticultural mission other than schlepping stuff around. I decided to analyze the various gardening steps to see if there was one that was possibly within the realm of my capabilities. I rejected soil preparation because you have to be Dmitri Mendeleev to discern the periodic table of organic fertilizers. The planting phase was out because I can’t tell a tomato plant from a hydrangea, and I am disqualified for life from weeding. I was about to throw in the trowel when I discovered something amaz-

ing while schlepping mulch for my wife. I watched her as she scooped up handfuls of premium shredded hardwood mulch from the wheelbarrow and sprinkled it in the flower beds. “Geesh,” I thought, “that doesn’t look very hard,” as I imagined the bristly feel of shaved carbon-based timber pulp between my fingers. I just had to say something to my wife… “Honey, would you like me to do that?” “That’s OK.” “No, really … I think I can mulch.” “Like you thought you could weed whack?” “That was a machinery malfunction … the string feeder thingy was messed up.” “And the hedge clippers?” “That wasn’t my fault … the sun kept getting in my eyes.” The mulch negotiations weren’t going very well. Then I got an idea. I promised my wife I’d study up on mulch. I’d go online and watch mulch videos on YouTube. I’d read the Wikipedia entry on mulch. I’d write a mulch limerick …”There was a young lady from Dry Gulch…”

Surprisingly, my wife countered with “Relax, Michael … why don’t you just watch me? I’ll explain what I’m doing and then you can try it.” Geesh, that was easy. I watched, I listened, and soon I was mulching … two to three inches spread evenly … gentle application around plants … don’t kneel on the flowers in the front to get to the back of the beds … no mulch Disney characters. I must have convinced my wife that I was mulch worthy, for the next day I was sent solo to cover the area underneath our pine tree. Mission accomplished. Lord of the Mulch! But the best part is that if you look carefully, you can see the faint mulch outline of Mickey Mouse’s head just behind the tree trunk. Snicker.

Gov’t consolidation bill headed to governor By KEVIN P. CRAVER Some of the state’s more obscure units of local government, from cemetery districts to water authorities, will have the power to consolidate or dissolve under a bill that cleared the General Assembly. House Bill 5875, sponsored by state Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, gives these governments statutory power to eliminate themselves if they so wish. The bill is on its way to Gov. Pat Quinn for approval after it cleared the Senate in a Thursday concurrence vote. The final report of a consolidation commission created and chaired by Franks revealed that many types of government have no statutory power to be consolidated or abolished. He called the bill a small but important step in paring down the state’s 7,000 units of government. Giving governments the power to eliminate themselves is a different strategy – past efforts by legislators to force consolidation by fiat have never had the

votes to pass. “This really creates the conditions necessary for consolidation. Now it will be up to the taxpayers if the taxing bodies need to be changed,” Franks said Friday. Illinois has the most units of government of any state at 6,968, according to a U.S. Census report – the first runner-up, Pennsylvania, has about 4,900. They include eclectic bodies that govern things like drainage, mosquito abatement, cemetery maintenance and county historical museums. McHenry County alone has 30 municipalities, 19 school districts, 17 townships, 17 fire protection districts, 13 library districts, four park districts, two sanitary districts and two cemetery districts. While supporters maintain that local government means local control, opponents argue

they result in overtaxation and are breeding grounds for waste and corruption, because the sheer number makes it almost impossible for taxpayers, media and good-government groups to keep an eye on them. The Better Government Association, one of the state’s best-known government watchdog agencies, hailed the bill’s passage. “This legislation provides a clear path toward consolidation for dozens of potentially unnecessary units of government. It’s a positive and welcome step toward reducing some of Illinois’ bureaucratic bloat,” President and CEO Andy Shaw said in a news release. House Bill 5875 allows the boards of cemetery, civic center, museum, port, solid waste disposal, street light, water authority and other districts to dissolve and either be consolidated into a similar neighboring district or absorbed into a municipal or county government. The absorbing government would have to vote to approve taking on the district’s

responsibilities. McHenry County, which has about 145 taxing bodies, has only two that would be able to eliminate themselves under the law – the Nunda Township and the Richmond cemetery districts. Efforts in recent years that have failed to pass in the General Assembly include creating a state commission with binding authority to eliminate local governments, and to consolidate school districts into one district for each county. Smaller-scale bills, such as ones eliminating small township road districts, also have failed. But other efforts have succeeded. State lawmakers are consolidating the number of regional offices of education from 44 to 35. A law passed last year has given the DuPage County Board the power to eliminate 13 of its 400 units of government if they meet specific criteria. Supporters want to give all 102 counties in Illinois that power, but a Franks bill that sought to do so failed in committee.

Lawmaker to call gambling expansion plan in fall The ASSOCIATED PRESS SPRINGFIELD – Plans to expand gambling in Illinois were put on hold Friday when the backer of legislation proposing new casinos said he wouldn’t call the measure for a vote until he resolved lingering issues and had key support. State Rep. Bob Rita, a Blue Island Democrat, said disputes over revenue sharing remained, and that he had yet to garner the full backing of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Gov. Pat Quinn, the horse

racing industry and local communities. He said the timing simply “was not right,” a decision that comes as lawmakers try to piece together a budget before adjourning this week for summer. He said he’d Bob Rita hold hearings over the summer and bring it back in the fall. “I am disappointed we could not move this issue forward this spring, but I am determined to prepare a bill for

consideration in the fall veto session. We will be considering important revenue and budget issues during that session,” he said in a statement. “I believe gambling expansion should and will be a major factor as we make these critical decisions going into 2015.” Several gambling proposals have failed in recent years. Last year, when lawmakers grappled with several other high-profile issues, a gambling expansion bill wasn’t called for a vote. Before that, two previous plans were vetoed by Quinn. The Chicago Democrat

has said he wanted more ethical protections. The latest plan has two options, one with a mega casino in Chicago and nowhere else. The other would call for a smaller Chicago casino and others in a suburb south of Chicago and the counties of Lake, Winnebago and Vermilion. Local communities have said expanded gambling would help revive their economies, but the heads of existing casinos in the state have expressed concerns about saturating the market.

Illinois Legislature OKs ‘incomplete’ 2015 budget By SARA BURNETT and KERRY LESTER The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Legislature sent a new state budget to Gov. Pat Quinn Friday that majority Democrats acknowledge puts off tough decisions about whether to slash spending or find new sources of revenue – including possibly making Illinois’ temporary tax increase permanent – until after the November election. Senate Democrats approved the approximately $35.7 billion 2015 spending plan, which the House passed earlier in the week, with no GOP support. The vote comes as the Legislature faces a Saturday deadline to adjourn. Democratic Sen. Dan Kotowski, a Senate budget negotiator, described the plan as “incomplete” but the best lawmakers could do this session. He said legislators will have to either find additional funds in the next year or cut at least $4.4 billion in expenses – an amount some lawmakers say could lead to thousands of

layoffs, closing facilities and slashing programs. “I’m not trying, nor is anybody trying to hide from the fact that we face challenges,” Kotowski said. “We’ll need to have options on the table ... to either fill this hole or wreak havoc.” Republicans called the plan irresponsible and warned the Legislature is headed toward a repeat of 2011. That’s when Democrats returned to Springfield after the fall election and voted to increase Illinois’ income tax by 67 percent with the help of so-called “lame duck” legislators who were finishing out their term after not being re-elected. “We can see what’s coming like having the other team’s playbook,” said Sen. Dale Righter, R-Mattoon. “We can see this team is in the same situation that they were four years ago and they are going to run the same play.” Quinn and other Democratic leaders wanted to extend Illinois’ temporary income tax increase, which is set to roll back in January.

More than a quarter of McHenry County taxing bodies have hit maximum tax rate • TAX Continued from page A1 tax levy to inflation plus new growth. Another limits the maximum tax rate of individual funds within a levy – like police protection, road and bridge, and even the main corporate or education funds – tying the maximum amount the entity can levy to a percentage of property values. More than a quarter of McHenry County’s 117 taxing bodies have reached the maximum tax rate in one or more of their funds. Of the 11 entities that hit the cap this tax year, five were school districts. The others included a community college, a library district, a township and two municipalities. This means that entities are oftentimes collecting less in these funds, which can present a budgeting dilemma, especially for governments that only have one fund. The village of Lakemoor will bring in 9.33 percent less in property taxes, which is on par with the drop for the Marengo Rescue Squad. Both government units only have one fund, and although property taxes made up 90 percent of the rescue squad’s revenue last fiscal year, it accounted for less than 20 percent of Lakemoor’s revenue, according to annual financial statements submitted to the Illinois Comptroller’s Office. Other revenue streams are starting to recover. The state unexpectedly – at least for most school officials – came through with money it was supposed to have paid school districts several years ago. Sales and income tax revenue is rebounding. Some governments also had savings to fall back on. McHenry’s District 15 hit the maximum tax rate in four of its funds – including education, building, working cash and special education – this tax year, but that shouldn’t force any cuts this year, said Mark Bertolozzi, the district’s chief financial officer. “We should be OK,” he said. “It’s something that over time could be an issue for us, but for one year, that should be OK.” The city of Harvard also relied on its savings for a while, but because it hit the maximum tax rate several years ago – its main corporate fund in 2010 – it has spent down those reserves, forcing the City Council to make cuts.

Kirk cites new allegations from veterans hospital staff By DON BABWIN and JASON KEYSER The Associated Press

Elgin Community College

CHICAGO – U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk said a doctor at a suburban Chicago veterans hospital told him Friday that “boxes and boxes” of echocardiograms went unread for weeks and in some cases not read until after the patients died, the latest allegations in a widening national scandal about shoddy medical care provided to the nation’s veterans. Appearing with a VA whistleblower who described widespread intimidation and harassment of employees at Edward Hines Jr. VA hospital, Kirk stopped short of saying that any of the deaths were caused by the failure to

read the tests. Neither he nor the whistleblower, a VA social worker and union representative, Germaine Clarno, would identify the doctor who told Kirk about the echocardiograms. Clarno declined to provide any documentation because she said it would identify staffers who were already in fear of being punished or fired. But at a news conference at Kirk’s office just hours after President Barack Obama announced that Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki had stepped down, the Illinois Republican and Clarno outlined what Kirk called a “culture of corruption” putting the lives of veterans at risk. “My concern is from what I heard from the whistleblow-

er today is one physician ... described virtual clinics where people were claimed to be seen and hadn’t really been seen,” said Kirk, a veteran himself. Kirk did not say how long ago the echocardiograms in boxes had been conducted. Hines spokeswoman Charity Hardison said in an email that while an investigation revealed a backlog of echocardiograms in 2011, there had been no “substantial backlog” between January 2012 and April 2013 and “no current delays in reading echocardiograms.” Hardison said Hines Director Joan Ricard requested the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs conduct an investigation once she learned about the allegations.

“They went ahead and made those difficult decisions,” Nelson said. “It wasn’t an easy thing and it wasn’t a pleasant thing, but they did what they had to do.” At least one local government unit is trying another tack. The McHenry County Conservation District asked the state Legislature for the ability to raise its statutory maximum tax rate for its corporate fund, which accounts for 97 percent of the non-bond property tax revenue it brings in. The bill, which would allow the district to take the question to voters, made it through the Senate but has stalled in the House. “When things are difficult, we are making changes,” Executive Director Elizabeth Kessler said. “We are reducing, reusing, reutilizing. That’s not just in the natural resource sector; that’s how we balance our budget.” Without an increase, the conservation district would see its revenues shrink by $2 million over the next five years, and eventually be forced to close sites during the winter, put off resurfacing trails and do less landscaping, Kessler said. By law, the district is not allowed to sell its land.

GOP House backs medical pot laws By ANDREW TAYLOR The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Libertarian-minded and moderate Republicans joined forces early Friday morning with Democrats in an early morning House vote to block the federal government from interfering with states that permit the use of medical marijuana. The unusual coalition produced a surprising 219-189 vote in the GOP-controlled House that reflects more permissive public attitudes toward medical pot use. It ran counter to the drug’s official classification as holding “no currently

accepted medical use” and a “high potential for abuse.” Friday’s vote came as the House debated a bill funding the Justice Department’s budget. Forty-nine Republicans joined all but 17 Democrats who voted in approving a provision to block the Justice Department from interfering with state laws permitting the “use, distribution, possession or cultivation of medical marijuana.” The amendment by conservative GOP Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California – the first state to legalize medical marijuana – came as almost half the states have le-

galized marijuana for medical uses, such as improving the appetites of cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. Other states permit the use of a nonpsychoactive marijuana extract to treat epilepsy. The measure doesn’t address the sale and use of marijuana for recreational purposes in Colorado and Washington, where voters have legalized it over objections from most elected officials. But it comes as the public is taking an increasingly permissive view toward medical pot use, particularly to help people suffering from chronic pain and nausea.

Secretary Arne Duncan. But he cautioned that a disproportionate share of the remaining 20 percent represent black and Hispanics students, along with special-needs students and English-language learners. Only 69 percent of black students and 73 percent of Hispanics across the country graduated in 2012, while 86 percent of white students and 88 percent of Asian students earned their diploma, according to data collected by the National Center for Education Statistics. The center estimated the rates by dividing the number of high school graduates in a class by the number of students who entered that class as freshmen, barring some adjustments for transfer students. Although far above national rates, school districts in Woodstock, McHenry and Harvard last year graduated fewer black and Hispanic students than other demographics. At District 300, Churchill

has found the district is less likely to graduate a black or Hispanic student from a low-income background versus a more affluent background. The dynamic, he said, has long plagued schools tasked with trying to lift achievement among low-income students and adequately prepare them for adulthood. The district in response has offered night courses and expanded summer classes to allow students, who might have to work multiple jobs, flexible schedules. Officials also have provided job training in fields like manufacturing for students who either don’t plan to attend or can’t afford a higher education. At Harvard High School, administrators see poverty and students who transfer frequently as reasons for their low graduate rates. District 50 last year graduated only 73.3 percent of all its students on time.

“Poverty is certainly in play but sometimes language is a factor,” said Principal Rob Zielinski, whose high school serves a predominant Hispanic population. “You start to put a lot of [straws] on that camel’s back, and it doesn’t move really fast.” The school consequently has started a freshmen tardiness program that allows newcomers to meet with counselors and after-school tutors. Since its inception a few years ago, the program has cut down the number of students who start their second year of high school without enough credits to be sophomores, Zielinski said. Crystal Lake District 155, meanwhile, graduated 94.3 percent of its students – the highest rate in the area. Superintendent Johnnie Thomas said administrators, teachers and staff actively target graduation rates. “In virtually everything we do, we embed the expectation that we are preparing our students for post-high school success,” he said. “These expectations are part of our culture and programs.”

Report: Clinton defends response to Benghazi By KEN THOMAS and PHILIP ELLIOTT The Associated Press

By JULIE PACE The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Beset by growing evidence of patient delays and cover-ups, embattled Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned from President Barack Obama’s Cabinet Friday, taking the blame for what he decried as a “lack of integrity” in the sprawling health care system for the nation’s military veterans. Obama, under mounting pressure to act from fellow Democrats who are worried about political fallout in the fall elections, praised the retired four-star general and said he accepted his resignation with “considerable regret.” But the president, too, focused on increasingly troubling allegations of treatment delays and preventable deaths at veterans hospitals around the country. Emerging from an Oval Office meeting with Shinseki, a stone-faced Obama said the secretary himself acknowledged he had become a distraction as the administration moves to address the VA’s troubles, and the president agreed with him. “We don’t have time for distractions,” Obama said. “We need to fix the problem.” One of Shinseki’s last acts as secretary was to hand the president an internal accounting that underscored just how big the problems have become. It showed that in some cases, VA schedulers have been pressured to fake information for reports to make waiting times

for medical appointments look more favorable. “It is totally unacceptable,” Obama said. “Our vets deserve the best. They’ve earned it.” The president appointed Sloan Gibson, the No. 2 at the Veterans Affairs Department, as temporary secretary as the search for a permanent successor began. Obama also asked Rob Nabors, a top White House aide who has been dispatched to the VA to oversee a broad review, to stay for the time being. Gibson, who has been Shinseki’s deputy for about three months, was formerly president and chief executive officer of the USO, the nonprofit organization that provides programs and services to U.S. troops and their families. Gibson is the son of an Army Air Corpsman who served in World War II and grandson of a World War I Army infantryman. Republicans in Congress said the shake-up wasn’t enough to solve problems at an agency that has been struggling to keep up with a huge demand for its services – some 9 million enrolled now compared to 8 million in 2008. The influx comes from returning Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, aging Vietnam War vets who now have more health problems, a move by Congress to expand the number of those eligible for care and the migration of veterans to the VA during the last recession after they lost their jobs or switched to the VA when their private insurance became more expensive.

India: 2 police fired for not acting in rape case By BISWAJEET BANERJEE The Associated Press LUCKNOW, India – Facing relentless media attention and growing criticism for a series of rapes, state officials in north India fired two police officers Friday for failing to investigate the disappearance of two teenage cousins, who were gang-raped and later found hanging from a tree. But in a country with a long history of tolerance for sexual violence, the firings also came as the state’s top official mocked journalists for asking about the attack. “Aren’t you safe? You’re not facing any danger, are you?” Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said in Lucknow, the state capital. “Then why are you worried? What’s it to you?” The gang rape, with video of the girls’ corpses hanging from a mango tree and swaying gently in a breeze, was the top story Friday on India’s relentless 24-hour news stations. But in just the past few days, Uttar Pradesh has also seen the mother of a rape victim brutally attacked and a 17-year-old girl gang-raped by four men. Indian police and politicians, who for decades had done little about sexual violence, have faced growing public anger since the December 2013 gang-rape and murder of

a young woman on a moving New Delhi bus, an attack that sparked national outrage over the treatment of women. On Friday, the state’s former chief minister lashed out at the ruling government. “There is no law and order in the state,” said Mayawati, who uses only one name. “It is the law of the jungle.” Hours later, the chief minister ordered that suspects in the attack be tried in special “fast track” courts, to get around India’s notoriously slow judicial system. The girls, who were 14 and 15, were raped in the tiny village of Katra, about 180 miles from Lucknow. Police said they disappeared Tuesday night after going into fields near their home to relieve themselves, since their house has no toilet. The father of one girl went to police that night to report them missing, but he said they refused to help. When the bodies were discovered the next day, angry villagers silently protested the police inaction by refusing to allow the bodies to be cut down from the tree. The villagers allowed authorities to take down the corpses after the first arrests were made Wednesday. Police arrested two police officers and two men from the village, and were searching for three more suspects.

This Nov. 28, 2012, photo shows then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton listening as President Barack Obama speaks in the Cabinet Room at the White House in Washington. The White House confirmed that Clinton had lunch Thursday with Obama. Politico. Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said that “until the book is released, there’s nothing to say. And once it’s released, it will speak for itself.” The book comes out June 10. The former first lady and senator from New York is the leading potential Democratic presidential candidate if she decides to run again, as well as a favorite Republican target. Clinton wrote that she takes responsibility for the deaths, but adds that there has been “a regrettable amount of misinformation, speculation

and flat-out deceit” by some in politics and the media. “I will not be a part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans. It’s just plain wrong, and it’s unworthy of our great country,” Clinton wrote. “Those who insist on politicizing the tragedy will have to do so without me.” Clinton’s book also offers something of a playbook for her supporters to defend her as she weighs a presidential bid. On Friday, her top advisers met for an hour with 33 friendly Democratic strategists,

allies and foreign policy academics who work in Washington’s vast think-tank network. Clinton counselor Philippe Reines led the session and former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor, who is helping Clinton’s team during the book launch, joined the discussion about how to frame Benghazi. Multiple independent, bipartisan and GOP-led investigations have faulted the State Department for inadequate security in Benghazi, leading to four demotions. No attacker has been arrested.

Medicare ban on sex reassignment surgery lifted By LISA LEFF The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO – Medicare can no longer automatically deny coverage requests for sex reassignment surgeries, a federal board ruled Friday in a groundbreaking decision that recognizes the procedures are medically necessary for some people who don’t identify with their biological sex. Ruling in favor of a 74-yearold transgender Army veteran whose request to have Medicare pay for her genital reconstruction was denied two years ago, a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services review board said there was no justification for a three-decade-old agency rule excluding such surgeries from treatments covered by the national health program for the elderly and disabled. “Sometimes I am asked aren’t I too old to have surgery. My answer is how old is too old?” the veteran, Denee Mallon, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, said in an email interview before the board issued its decision. “When people ask if I am too old, it feels like they are implying that it’s a ‘waste

sex reassignment surgery paid for by the government. Instead, the lifting of the coverage ban means they now will be able to seek authorization by submitting documentation from a doctor and mental health professionals stating that surgery is recommended in their individual case, Levi said. Gary Gates, a demographer with The Williams Institute,

a think tank on LGBT issues based at the University of California, Los Angeles, has estimated that people who self-identify as transgender make up 0.3 percent of the U.S. adult population. Over 49 million Americans are enrolled in Medicare. The cost of gender reassignment surgery varies, but typically ranges from $7,000 to $50,000, according to the Transgender Law Center in Oakland, California. In Friday’s ruling, the appeals board said that HHS lacked sufficient evidence in 1981 when it made a “national coverage determination,” or NCD, holding that Medicare recipients were ineligible for what it then called “transsexual surgery” because the procedure was too controversial, experimental and medically risky. The panel said that regardless of what the record showed then, studies and experts have since shown the efficacy of surgical interventions as a treatment for gender dysphoria, the diagnosis given to people who experience extreme distress due to the disconnect between their birth sex and their gender identity.

Shinseki resigns amid vets’ health care problems


AP photo

Deputy Veterans Affairs Secretary Sloan Gibson leaves the White House Friday in Washington after being named by President Barack Obama to run the Veterans Affairs Department on an interim basis while Obama searches for a replacement for Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki. Shinseki resigned Friday.

WASHINGTON – Hillary Rodham Clinton dismisses her critics and defends her handling of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, in her new book, offering fellow Democrats a guide for how to talk about the fraught issue through the 2016 presidential race. The former secretary of state’s “Hard Choices” is a rebuke to Republicans who have seized upon the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. Should Clinton run for president in 2016, her four years as secretary of state and the Benghazi attack in particular are certain to be the subject of driving criticism from Republicans. She’s already trying to blunt the issue. Republicans have accused the Obama administration of stonewalling congressional investigators and misleading the public about the nature of the attack in the weeks before the presidential election. Republicans used the attack to try to undermine President Barack Obama’s re-election and, now, to tarnish the still-uncertain Clinton bid to replace him in early 2017. “Those who exploit this tragedy over and over as a political tool minimize the sacrifice of those who served our country,” Clinton wrote in a 34-page chapter, obtained by

Urbanski a top-15 speller The Northwest Herald Editorial Board offers this week’s thumbs up and thumbs down: Thumbs up: To Crystal Lake eighth-grader Lucas Urbanski for his top-15 finish in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Urbanski, 14, made his fourth consecutive appearance in the national bee this week and finished with his highest ranking yet, placing 13th in the country. His previous best was 19th. “I’m happy with my placement,” Urbanski said. “Thirteenth is better than last year, so I’m good with that.” Congratulations, Lucas. You represented yourself, your family and McHenry County well. Thumbs up: To police all over McHenry County for raising money Friday for Special Olympics Illinois during Cop on a Rooftop. The annual fundraiser raises money and awareness for the Law Enforcement Torch Run, the largest fundraiser Special Olympics Illinois puts on each year. It’s an important cause, and we’re happy to see officers take the time to make it so visible to the community. Thumbs down: To administrators at Ridgewood High School in suburban Norridge for threatening not to release diplomas to students who threw their caps into the air at their graduation ceremony unless they personally apologized for their “disrespectful and insubordinate behavior.” After responding to parental outrage, the school reversed course and presented the diplomas. Lighten up. Thumbs up: To the Jacobs girls tennis team for organizing the Hit for Henry tennis clinic to benefit tennis coach Jon Betts and his family as Betts’ son, Henry, fights muscular dystrophy. The clinic will run June 6-8 at Jacobs High School.


8IT’S YOUR WRITE Send them packing

Congress flunks lunch Students learn about good nutrition in school. They just don’t get a lot. Now the House of Representatives is threatening to sabotage an effort to address that failure. New federal standards for school lunches, phased in over the past two years, set a calorie cap for meals, encourage kids to eat whole grains and require them to put a fruit or vegetable on their plate. (No, they don’t have to eat it.) This is too much for some House Republicans, who have taken up the cause of finicky eaters with a zeal once reserved for Soviet dissidents or Mitt Romney. “Kids are saying they don’t want this,” Rep. Hal Rogers, R-Kentucky, said last week. “You are trying to force them to eat things they don’t want.” To be clear, no one is forcing anyone to eat anything. Unlike some other congressional debates, this is not about the use of force. The issue is how best to fight obesity, which has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the U.S. in the past 30 years. Better school lunches won’t reduce obesity all by themselves. But the obesity problem cannot be addressed without changing how children eat in school, where they consume half their calories. In the age-old battle between grown-ups and kids about eating better, schools and parents need to work together. House members said the school lunch program, mandated by a 2010 law, is already a failure because some students stopped buying lunches and others are throwing away the fruits and vegetables uneaten. They said some schools and food providers need more time to adjust to the new rules. Yet 90 percent of schools are now meeting the standards, and the Department of Agriculture said it is working to help the rest catch up. And as any parent can attest, all children resist eating new things. (Note to parents: It’s not you. Children are programmed that way.) In fact, nutritionists recommend the very strategy the USDA is using: Just keep putting that broccoli on the plate, and don’t worry whether the kids eat it. Eventually enough of them will. There’s also evidence to suggest the tales of healthy-food rejection and waste are exaggerated. In a recent study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, food waste in four schools was no greater after the reforms than before, and vegetable consumption increased by 16.2 percent. Of course, ensuring that students eat well in the cafeteria does only so much good if they are gorging on brownies and sodas bought in school bake sales and vending machines. That’s why in 2014-15, nutritional standards will apply to all foods and beverages sold on campuses during the school day, and extend to breakfasts as well. Those rules will no doubt be opposed by extracurricular groups that use food sales for fundraising – the marching bands, theater troupes and student governments, not to mention parent and alumni associations. Everyone wants to be the exception to the rules. That’s all the more reason for Congress to reject this attempt to water down school nutrition. Bloomberg View

To the Editor: I can’t believe Michael Madigan would try the old “it’s-for-education” bit to get his millionaire tax through. How many times can we be told “this money will go to education”? It is past time to send Madigan and John Cullerton back to trying to make an honest living in the private sector and take Pat Quinn with them. Bill McElman Lake in the Hills

Capital punishment cleanup To the Editor: Method of execution has been in the news lately. Seems strapping someone down and filling him/her with drugs doesn’t work so well. It’s not reliable and can cause a lot of pain, especially to the news media and certain bleeding hearts. Electrocution cooks people and makes them stink. Hanging gets messy. Shooting? Bullets now cost too much, and the rifleman might be nearsighted and not hit the

spot. What works without any of the above problems? I suggest setting up an air-tight room fully furnished with comfortable accommodations – TV, snacks, drinks, etc. After the prisoner enters the room, evacuate the air. He/she just goes to sleep and never wakes up. No pain, and virtually no mess. The room could be like a motor home and travel around the country to be shared by all jurisdictions. We only need one. Look at the savings in money. If you are against capital punishment, we’ll send a death-row inmate over to your house to live with you and see how long it takes for you to change your mind. Frank M.

Republican leaders of the Legislature have done nothing to fix the situation for the taxpayers of Illinois, for fear of admitting that a policy they supported has been an abject failure. By calling attention to the failure of the state and Northstar to deliver as promised, Franks, however, has shown again that his interest is in serving the taxpayers of Illinois, not special interests or the Democratic machine that dominates Springfield. We are lucky to have such a dynamic, independent legislator represent us, and all should vote to re-elect him in November. Mercedes Jamka Woodstock

Tea party regroups with big victories in Texas WASHINGTON – The brew is weaker but still being drunk in Texas, as the tea party there bucked a national trend and toppled more establishment Republicans on Tuesday. Tuesday’s vote marks the end of the line for two of the most durable figures in Texas. Republican Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst lost his bid to run for re-election to Dan Patrick, a state legislator and radio host, and 17-term Rep. Ralph Hall lost to a lawyer, John Ratcliffe. With those victories and a few others down ballot, the Texas Republicans are no longer George W. Bush’s party, nor Rick Perry’s, but Ted Cruz’s. Compared with Republicans now, Bush and Perry were softies on immigration. It’s not likely that a Republican pushing in-state tuition privileges for the children of illegal immigrants, as Perry did, could win office today. Patrick is to the right of Cruz, who won his party’s Senate nomination in 2012 in a low-turnout runoff. Patrick was slammed for

VIEWS Margaret Carlson employing undocumented workers in his Houston-area sports bar in the 1980s (he claimed ignorance), leaving behind $800,000 in unpaid debts after going bankrupt, and ridiculed in a video to the tune of “Let it Go” for changing his name (“Dannie Goeb, Dannie Goeb, I can’t lie to you anymore”). In a blow that may have backfired, a Dewhurst supporter put out medical records purporting to show that Patrick was mentally unstable and had attempted suicide. But Patrick hit the sweet spot of tea party activists with his far-right positions on gay marriage, guns, the environment, taxes, immigration and abortion. He hammered the incumbent Dewhurst, who presided over the Senate, for creating national phenomenon Wendy Davis by not blocking


her filibuster of a bill restricting abortions. Not that this is going to matter. Davis won the Democratic primary in March to go up against Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott in November. She is running behind by double digits. The Patrick win is a loss for the national Republican establishment and the Chamber of Commerce, and a long-term win for Democrats. Patrick will drive the state further right and accelerate the turning of a reliably red state purple as more Hispanics and young people turn out to vote. The other marquee race gives credence to Karl Rove’s effort to intimidate Hillary Clinton out of running on the basis of age and health. Hall, 91 and running for his 18th term, was defeated by a former U.S. attorney, Ratcliffe, backed by the tea party, who came out and said voters should be concerned that Hall was too old to serve. The race holds the distinction of being the first this cycle to oust an incumbent, finally providing ballast to polls

showing how hated incumbents are. In the category of likely sacrificial lamb, Democrat David Alameel, a wealthy Dallas dentist, beat Kesha Rogers, an outlier ignored by the national party, to go up against incumbent Republican Sen. John Cornyn. To demonstrate how conservative Democrats in Texas are, Rogers made it to a runoff despite being an ardent Lyndon LaRouche supporter and advocating impeaching President Barack Obama, whom she pictured in campaign signs with a Hitler mustache. Cornyn is expected to coast to re-election. In the category of a lot less to laugh about in Texas, comedian, country music singer and frequent candidate Kinky Friedman, who kept his opponent under 50 percent in March, lost his race for the Democratic nomination to be agricultural commissioner to cattle rancher Jim Hogan. • Margaret Carlson is a Bloomberg View columnist.

JUDGE REJECTS BOND REDUCTION WOODSTOCK – A McHenry County judge denied a request to lower the bond for a Woodstock man accused of sexually assaulting a child. Jose J. Vega, 26, remains in custody of McHenry County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bond. He was arrested May 15 on six Class X felonies accusing him of sexually assaultJose J. Vega ing a young girl 26 to whom he was related. Class X felonies are punishable by between six and 30 years in prison. The girl was 7 years old in 2008 when the alleged abuse began and continued to 2013, Assistant State’s Attorney Robert Zalud said. Vega also is accused of showing the girl pornography and threatening her if she told anyone, Zalud said at Friday’s bond hearing before McHenry County Judge Michael Feetterer. Vega’s defense attorney, George Mueller, characterized the state’s position on Vega as being “guilty just because there’s a complaint.” “No proof or evidence has ever been tendered,” Mueller said. Feetterer ultimately rejected Vega’s request to reduce his bond to $60,000. His next court date is June 12.

Algonquin fires probed By SHAWN SHINNEMAN ALGONQUIN – Three fires in five days in the same Algonquin neighborhood have prompted an investigation, a fire official said. The Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District responded to separate incidents at 12:30 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. May 24.

The fires at 370 Glenwood Court and 320 Crestwood Court, respectively, were within a block of each other. A third fire occurred just before midnight Wednesday at 345 Crestwood Court. Algonquin police are working with the department on the investigation. “To have that many incidents in that sort of time frame, that close together, is

in and of itself suspicious,” Assistant Fire Chief Peter VanDorpe said. VanDorpe compared the incidents to three robberies or vandalisms in a similar area and within a similar number of days. “You would consider that unusual or suspicious,” he said. “It’s being investigated in that context.” The first of the three blaz-

WOODSTOCK – It was time to take that walk. Some did it in perfect balance atop high heels, others a little shakier. Some did it in loafers or sneakers and others flipped and flopped along. No matter their method, all 159 graduates had the same locale in mind. Final destination, their futures. Marian Central Catholic High School bid farewell to its 2014 senior class Friday night within the confines where it all started, the four-year jog that after you blink seems like a sprint. “We’re all very excited to create our own paths,” class salutatorian Charles Shin said. “Motivated. That word pretty much sums up our class.” That motivation will serve them well as they enter a world so very different from the one their parents faced. “The challenge will be finding our individual niche, our role,” Shin said. “Technology will present many advantages and challenges for us.

Johnsburg grads cherish time ‘in the ’burg’ By SARAH STRZALKA JOHNSBURG – Brothers Ian and Sean Nykaza insist it wasn’t a competition to see who could finish at the top of their class. But “he has to come out first in everything,“ Sean said. The twins walked across a stage set up on the Johnsburg High School football field on Friday, with Ian named valedictorian and Sean named salutatorian of the Class of 2014. “We’ve always tried to do the best we can in any situation and that’s what it was,” Ian said. The difference in their GPAs was only .03. “It sounds cliché, but it

was brotherly,” Sean said. “There was no animosity between who got first or second. We just strived to achieve what we could, and I think we did well.” The Nykazas will attend the University of Minnesota – in the appropriately named Twin Cities – although they said they made their decision independently and will not room together. “It’s funny, I guess,” Ian said. “Go Gophers!” Both said they want to make a difference in the world: Sean through studying mechanical engineering and Ian through physics with plans to earn a doctorate.

CRYSTAL LAKE – A Memorial Day “Click it or Ticket” enforcement netted Crystal Lake police 72 traffic citations and two drunken driving arrests. Paid by the Illinois Department of Transportation, police in Crystal Lake heightened their enforcement of seat belt laws this month. Agencies from Algonquin, Lake in the Hills and across the state also participated separately. During the extra enforcement, Crystal Lake police issued 72 traffic citations, including 21 safety belt violations and 14 violations for illegal cellphone use. Police also charged two adults with driving under the influence. The statewide campaign is meant to get more motorists to buckle up and save lives, Crystal Lake police said in a news release.

Cops take to the roof for Special Olympics fundraiser By SHAWN SHINNEMAN

Kyle Grillot –

Deputy Chief Mike Roth and Chief Patrick Finlon look out over the parking lot of Dunkin’ Donuts Friday during the 12th annual fundraiser for Special Olympics Illinois in Cary. Police officers from throughout the state topped more than 150 Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops to heighten awareness and raise money for the Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics Illinois. Officers hope to raise more than $325,000 for the event. Dunkin’ Donuts also will donate $15,000 to the Torch Run fund.

CRYSTAL LAKE – Kurt Majzner stood atop a Dunkin’ Donuts roof overlooking Route 14 Friday morning and struck an unspoken – but noisy – deal with the drivers turning in. Majzner, a Crystal Lake Police Department detective, had slapped a kilt over his uniform and was playing the bagpipes. “They pay and I’ll play,” he said, and then, thinking about it, added a different scenario. “Or, they pay and I’ll stop. “Either way, it’s supporting a good cause.” Majzner joined police all over McHenry County on Friday to raise money for Special Olympics Illinois during Cop on a Rooftop. The annual fundraising event raises money and awareness for the Law En-

which was crowded Friday morning. The line at the drive-thru wrapped around the building and spilled onto Route 14 at times. Officers expected to top their mark from last year, as pitch-perfect morning weather was forecast to climb into the high 70s as the day wore on. “Sometimes it’s cold. Sometimes it’s rainy,” said officer Sean McGrath, who has been volunteering for Cop on a Rooftop for seven years. “This is a good year.” Below, in the drive-thru line, volunteers Pam LaVoie and Daniel Garcia greeted customers and took donations. The two said they’d been successful much of the morning – no change from years past, LaVoie added. “Everyone here is so generous,” she said. “We’ve had great turnouts every year.”

and I have no regrets,’ ” Ian said. During his turn at the podium, Sean poked fun at his small town by saying the only thing more plentiful in Johnsburg than corn is the potholes in the high school parking lot. Class president Chloe Hurckes continued the chiding, saying that “only in the ’burg” do the parking lots flood. But there also are many positives to the ’burg, she said. “Only in the ’burg do we have 19 people in our class score above a 30 on their

ACT,” Hurckes said. “Only in the ’burg do we have our football star be an ensemble member in the musical and go to state for discus.” Hurckes, who plans to attend Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this fall, recalled her great-grandmother’s 100th birthday in April. Hurckes said her great-grandmother told her that she only regretted dropping out of high school at age 14 to take care of family. “When you stop to think about it, almost everyone [here] has been given the op-

portunity to get an education that our grandparents maybe didn’t get,” she said. “We woke up for the past 15 or so years and went to school, not realizing that there are people who never got the chance.” Hurckes said her wish for her class was to appreciate their education at JHS. “Never take those times you had to force yourself out of bed to go to class, a practice, or a meeting for granted,” she said. “Every single thing we’ve experienced here has shaped us into who we are today and who we will become.”

But Alana Subleski remains in the intensive care unit, paralyzed on her left side and attached to a ventilator. Doctors have advised that Alana stay in the ICU for another two weeks before transferring back to Centegra for five to six weeks of in-house rehabilitation, followed by six to eight weeks of outpatient rehab. Outpatient rehab will span between three and five hours a day, Mary Ann Subleski said, although she added that doctors are only making preliminary plans at this point.

OBITUARIES MARJORIE A. BALDONI Born: Aug. 16, 1914; in Morton, IL Died: May 22, 2014 Marjorie A. Baldoni, age 99, of Crystal Lake, passed away May 22, 2014. Marjorie was born August 16, 1914, in Morton, IL, the daughter of William and Ida (Moschel) Eisele. She married Andrew A. Baldoni on September 26, 1942 in Pekin, IL. She worked as a secretary during the time her husband attended college, went into the Army and then graduate school. Marjorie loved her home where she resided for over 55 years until the day of her death. She especially enjoyed being a stay at home mom raising her two sons Andy and Bill. In her leisure time she took pleasure in playing bridge, golf and having the good fortune of traveling around the world with her husband on business and pleasure trips. She was an active member of the Crystal Lake Women's Club, Service League, League of Women Voters and various book clubs. When her sons started college, Marjorie decided it would be nice to return to the professional world and worked for the McHenry County Title Company and the State of Illinois from where she retired. She was preceded in death by her husband, Andrew, on June 15, 2004, as well as many dear friends and relatives. Marjorie is survived by her two sons, Andrew A.

STARRING: Seth McFarlane, Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson

PLOT: As a cowardly farmer begins to fall for the mysterious new woman in town, he must put his new-found courage to the test when her husband, a notorious gun-slinger, announces his arrival. RATED: R for strong crude and sexual content, language throughout, some violence and drug material TIME: 1 hour, 46 minutes VERDICT: Seth MacFarlane might’ve picked a safer place to make his lead-acting debut than “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” his directorial follow-up to 2012’s surprisingly successful “Ted.” The marketplace doesn’t seem to be crying out for Westerns, after all – be they earnest revivals, satires, or genre hybrids involving extra-terrestrials – and the undeniably of-his-moment MacFarlane is, as the script indirectly admits, a strange fit for the genre. Stocking the supporting cast with top-drawer talent, he gives most of his co-stars little to do besides attract our attention on movie posters. A winking mid-film cameo prompts viewers to wonder how MacFarlane might have fared playing a time-traveler from our era stranded in the Old West. Instead, his 1880s sheep farmer Albert Stark simply talks like someone born in and transplanted from the 20th century. “We live in a terrible place and time,” Albert tells friends Edward (Giovanni Ribisi) and Ruth (Sarah Silverman), assessing his surroundings as if seeing medical and social realities through our eyes. Dumped by his longtime sweetheart Louise (Amanda Seyfried), Albert is about ready to leave town when he meets Anna (Charlize Theron), a newcomer who appreciates his gentle personality in a way locals don’t. Perhaps that’s because she’s secretly betrothed to the meanest cuss in these parts, a bandit called Clinch (Liam Neeson), who has sent her here to hide out while he dodges the law for a spell. While Albert frets about Louise’s new romance with fancy-pants shopkeeper Foy (Neil Patrick Harris, whose vain moustache-tonic merchant is a reliable laugh-getter), Anna takes an inexplicable interest in helping him stand up for himself. In a rare display of nerve, Albert challenges Foy to a duel; as Anna offers him the gunslinger lessons that will inevitably lead to love, the film’s supporting cast all but vanishes from the film. The romance plot could hardly be more familiar, but at least it plays out against a landscape so dramatic one almost suspects the filmmakers composited a few extra sandstone formations into Monument Valley. Theron carries almost all the weight here, given her partner’s unexpected blandness. Though the film is hardly laugh-free, its uneven jokes appear to have breezed through a very forgiving editing process. The leave-it-all-in approach leads to a nearly two-hour running time that looks all the more indulgent given how much invention “Blazing Saddles” packed into an hour-anda-half.– The Associated Press

“BLENDED” STARRING: Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore, Wendi McLendon-Covey PLOT: After a bad blind date, a man and woman find themselves stuck together at a resort for families, where their attraction grows as their respective kids benefit from the burgeoning relationship. RATED: PG-13 for crude and sexual content and language TIME: 1 hour, 57 minutes VERDICT: Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions churns out some of the most idiotic comedies to land on the big screen. To wit: Last year’s “Grown Ups 2” was one of the worst movies since 2012’s “That’s My Boy,” which was at least slightly better than Razzie winner “Jack and Jill,” from 2011. Compared with its forebears, the romantic comedy “Blended” looks like “Annie Hall.” Of course, the bar is low. But when the fire alarm started ringing an hour into a recent screening of the movie and the whole audience had to file out to the street, just about everyone appeared to return for the final hour. So that’s something. Sixteen years since Sandler starred opposite Drew Barrymore in “The Wedding Singer” and a decade since they starred together in “50 First Dates,” the pair have grown up,

even if the comedy hasn’t. They play Jim and Lauren, two single parents who go on a disastrous blind date. Basically, Jim is a schlubby Mr. Darcy, antagonizing Lauren only to potentially win her over later, when the two, each with their children, coincidentally end up on the same African safari vacation for “Brady Bunch”-esque blended families. There are a lot of misses when it comes to the comedy. One of the most dependable jokes comes courtesy of Terry Crews: The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star plays a spirited and muscled resort troubadour who shows up singing at the oddest moments, always with a huge group of backup singers. “Blended” is more successful when it lets itself be sentimental. Jim’s middle daughter, Espn (Emma Fuhrmann) – pronounced “Espin,” her namesake is the television network – talks constantly to her dead mother, even saving seats for Jim’s late wife at the breakfast table. And his youngest daughter, Lou (the adorable Alyvia Alyn Lind), is in such desperate need of a mom figure, she latches onto Lauren the moment they meet. But the filmmakers, including director Frank Coraci (who also did “The Wedding Singer”), seem terrified to dwell in sensitive territory for too long. Each sweet moment is inevitably punctuated by some in-your-face joke that’s at least as stupid as the preceding moments were heartfelt. “Blended” has other problems, too, including some faulty editing and a typically predictable finale. But there are some genuinely sweet and funny moments, which are more than enough to exceed expectations.–

“GODZILLA” STARRING: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston PLOT: The world’s most famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence. RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of destruction, mayhem and creature violence TIME: 2 hours, 3 minutes VERDICT: No one can blame Gareth Edwards for admittedly feeling nervous when asked to helm a remake of the biggest monster movie of all time. Well, the latest iteration of the 60-year-old franchise is in capable hands. Edwards’ “Godzilla” is a pleasingly paced 3-D spectacle that pays chilling homage to the artful legacy of the original 1954 film – Ishiro Honda’s “Gojira” – while emerging as its own prodigious monster movie. Created as a symbol of the nuclear threat after America’s atomic attacks on Japan in World War II, Godzilla’s reappearance suggests the nuclear tests conducted by the U.S. in the Pacific after the war were really meant to hold the radioactive dinosaur back. This story begins in Japan in 1999 as nuclear physicist Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston, edgy in an unbearable wig) investigates questionable seismic activity at a nuclear power plant on the coast of India. When a team at the plant, including his scientist wife, Sandra (an underused Juliette Binoche), dies in what everyone believes is a natural disaster, Joe dedicates his life to proving that what caused the devastation was anything but natural. His obsession creates a rift between him and his son, Ford. Fifteen years later, we catch up with Ford (played by a placid but sexy Aaron Taylor-Johnson) in San Francisco, where he lives with his wife (Elizabeth Olsen) and their son. Screenwriter Max Borenstein, working from a story by Dave Callaham, doesn’t bombard us with multiple narratives. Instead, the film focuses on Ford’s family story. When we finally see Godzilla – just shy of an hour into the film – the anticipation has built to such a degree that we expect to be awe-struck. And we are. Honoring the eerie music of the original, this film’s score by Alexandre Desplat (“Argo”) is equally menacing. In the hands of visual effects guru Jim Rygiel (“The Lord of the Rings” franchise), the contemporary take looks incredibly fluid and Godzilla’s movements appear far more natural. Godzilla isn’t oversold, although for some, his lack of screentime won’t be satisfying enough. However, the balance between the family-focused story line and intense action sequences is bound to please others. While the predictable sequel has not yet been confirmed, one thing is clear: Edwards’ version of “Godzilla” remains the ultimate monster movie.

The legacy has been upheld.– The

“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. TIME: 1 hour, 37 minutes VERDICT: 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 way of Lara Croft. Director Robert Stromberg and screenwriter Linda Woolverton take us back to the fairy’s youth to better understand her. 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. 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. And frankly, the other characters are simply not that interesting. 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 end, “Maleficent” is fun for its appealing visuals 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.– The

feud of escalating traps and dirty tricks. Directed with characteristic haphazard style by Nicholas Stoller (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Get Him to the Greek,” “The Five-Year Engagement”), “Neighbors” isn’t designed to impress with subtle comedy or clever construction. Rather, it’s a movie of whammies: one-liners, shticks and sight gags that don’t gain in momentum or accrue in meaning. “Neighbors” is primarily a bromance: between Teddy and his best friend, Pete (Dave Franco), a bespectacled brain whose love for his Adonis-like leader is clearly much deeper than fraternal. Rogen and Efron both prove to be excellent sports when “Neighbors” exploits their dramatically different physiques. Until then, however, viewers must slog through all manner of crude, coarse, often lazily choreographed bits. Still, “Neighbors” will no doubt reward audiences who demand little more than a few broad, easy laughs to be entertained, which, after all, describes most filmgoers these days. To quote Mac and Kelly in their best undergraduate patois: I’m not judgin’, I’m just sayin’.– The

and language

TIME: 2 hours, 11 minutes VERDICT: Matthew Vaughn and a superb cast reinvigorated the franchise with cool retro style and globe-trotting intrigue in 2011’s “X-Men: First Class.” The series’ original director, Bryan Singer, continues that momentum in the vigorously entertaining “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” While it’s more dramatically diffuse than the reboot and lacks a definitive villain, the new film is shot through with a stirring reverence for the Marvel Comics characters. Hardcore followers will have a geek field day. The central premise comes from the 1981 Uncanny X-Men comic “Days of Future Past,” in which Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) uses her consciousness transference powers to go back from a dystopian future and rewrite history. Echoes of the Holocaust have rippled throughout the series, and Singer opens with present-day scenes of a desolate, burnt-out New York, where mutants and mutant-sympathizing humans have been rounded up in internment camps. Jumping to a similarly devastated Moscow, we watch Kitty, Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) and a small band of mutants face an attack from the deadly Sentinels. The mutants escape and regroup in the rubble of an ancient Chinese monastery with Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellen), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Storm (Halle Berry). Threatened with extinction, the mutant holdouts hatch a plan to return to the post-Vietnam Paris Peace Accord of 1973, when

Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) killed Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), a U.S. military scientist developing the Sentinels program. Wolverine’s ability to heal makes him the only one able to withstand the 40-year time jump. Kinberg’s script milks welcome humor out of sending the least diplomatic of the X-Men back to persuade the younger Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) to join forces and stop the assassination. Perhaps the film’s standout sequence features the much-discussed new addition of Peter Maximoff, aka Quicksilver (“American Horror Story” regular Evan Peters). His super-speed skills are conveyed by shooting at 3,000 frames per second, notably when Peter runs around the walls during a fabulously staged Pentagon break-in, whimsically accompanied by Jim Croce singing “Time in a Bottle.” But this movie belongs to Jackman and Lawrence. In his seventh turn in the role, Jackman brings powerful physicality, laconic humor and depths of sorrow beneath his gruffness. Switching from her honorable “Hunger Games” heroine into badass mode with supreme ease, Lawrence is sensational. Her romantic friendship with Charles, stretching back to their childhoods, adds poignancy to Mystique’s struggle. It’s hard to imagine fanboys having too much to grumble about here. Audiences should sit tight through the end credits for an enigmatic signoff scene that provides a taste of the next installment, “X-Men: Apocalypse.”– The Associated Press

“Neighbors” STARRING: Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron

PLOT: A couple with a newborn baby face unexpected difficulties after they are forced to live next to a fraternity house. RATED: Rated R for pervasive language, strong crude and sexual content, graphic nudity, and drug use throughout TIME: 1 hour, 36 minutes VERDICT: Seth Rogen and Zac Efron make for amusing alter-egos in “Neighbors,” a shaggy, baggy collegiate comedy that is less a coherent movie than a loosely assembled series of lewd jokes and punishing slapstick routines. In “Neighbors,” Rogen is (almost) all grown up as Mac Radner, who with wife Kelly (Rose Byrne) is raising the world’s most awesome baby in a cozy college-town bungalow. When the house next door is sold to a fraternity, the Radners at first try to make nice with the group’s president, a bronzed, charming cock of the walk named Teddy (Efron). It’s all rainbows and unicorns, of course, until the frat’s next rager, which leads the Radners to call the police. What ensues is a picket-fence




Northwest Herald / ADVICE Nondrinker feels out of step with her peers Prehypertension poses health risks of its own

Page B6 • Saturday, May 31, 2014

Dear Abby: I’m 20 years old. My boyfriend and I don’t drink. Almost every person my age does, and it’s starting to get to me. I’d love to have friends besides my boyfriend I can hang out with, but I find I only connect with him because everyone else always wants to go out and party. He is an introvert, so the seclusion doesn’t bother him. I, on the other hand, am greatly bothered by it. I have always been ahead of the curve in terms of people my age. I have more in common with 30-year-olds than people in college. Unfortunately, I would feel weird spending time with 30-year-olds, and I’m sure they’d feel the same about spending time with me. Most of my spare time is spent with my family. How can I find people my age who think the way I do? I don’t want to be the kind of girl who only spends time with her boyfriend. I would appreciate

New Jersey Dear Liz: I agree it’s time to expand your circle of acquaintances. That’s why I’m advising you to join a gym or some other physical activity group and start meeting people who are involved in physical fitness. None of the ones I know want to spend their time drinking and partying because they are more interested in eating and living healthfully. I’m sure if you try it, you will meet others who think the way you do. Dear Abby: I am 15, and all of my friends my age and a grade lower have their belly buttons pierced. I have been asking my mom for a very long time and she doesn’t have a problem with it, but my dad does. He

won’t let me get it done because he doesn’t want me looking like trash at this age. I don’t want it to impress boys; I want it for my own beauty and to look good with a cute jewel to go with my summer outfits or bathing suits. They said to ask you if you think it’s wrong to have a belly button pierced at the age of 15. Is it wrong? – Kylie In Washington Dear Kylie: I don’t think having a belly button pierced is a question of right or wrong. I suspect your father’s objection – and I’m not sure I disagree with him – is he would prefer you make an impression by attracting attention in some other way. I’m suggesting you hold off for now and have it done when you’re older – providing you haven’t changed your mind by then. • Write Dear Abby at www. or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Dear Dr. K: My doctor says I have prehypertension. If it’s “pre,” then I don’t need to worry about it, right? Dear Reader: Prehypertension is a blood pressure reading of 120-139/80-89 mm Hg. That’s the gray zone between normal blood pressure (below 120/80) and hypertension, or high blood pressure (above 140/90). We know hypertension is dangerous. It increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and impaired vision. Doctors first coined the term prehypertension because they found evidence that having prehypertension puts you at higher than average risk for developing hypertension later on. Having prehypertension meant, at a minimum, two things. First, it was even more important for you than for the average person to make the lifestyle changes that reduce your risk of getting hyperten-

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff sion. Second, it meant your blood pressure needed to be measured more frequently. New studies reveal that prehypertension poses health risks of its own. It might independently increase your risk of having a stroke. Researchers analyzed 19 high-quality studies that focused on the links between prehypertension and stroke. The researchers broke down the participants into two groups: • Low-range prehypertension: Blood pressure between 120/80 and 129/84. • High-range prehypertension: Blood pressure between 130/85 and 139/89. People with high-range prehypertension had a 95 percent higher stroke risk compared

with people with normal blood pressure. Those in the low range had a 44 percent higher stroke risk. This study only adds to the evidence that we should take prehypertension seriously. So far, doctors don’t recommend people with prehypertension take medications. Blood pressure drugs lower blood pressure, but they also can cause harmful side effects. In the prehypertension range, benefits and risks seem to cancel each other out. Instead, people with prehypertension should focus on lifestyle changes: low-salt diets, healthy weight and regular exercise. These can lower your blood pressure to the normal range without having to take medications. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

CHICAGO – The Chicago-area home where Ferris Bueller’s friend Cameron famously “killed” his father’s prized Ferrari finally has a new owner. Crain’s Chicago Business reports the modernist home in Highland Park sold Thursday for $1.06 million. Craig Hogan is regional director at Coldwell Banker Previews. He wouldn’t say who bought the four-bedroom, steel-and-glass house built on the edge of a wooded ravine. The house, built in 1953 by Mies van der Rohe-protege A. James Speyer, was first put on the market in 2009 listed at $2.3 million.

Bret Michaels suffers medical emergency at concert

Monaco’s Princess Charlene is pregnant PARIS – Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco announced Friday that they are expecting their first child, who will be heir to the tiny principality. The 36-year-old South African former Olympic swimmer and her 56-year-old husband, whom she married in 2011, issued a statement expressing their “immense joy.” The short statement said the birth is expected before the end of the year. Although it did not elaborate, this implies the princess is at least three months pregnant. The news is sure to please the palace and end recent tabloid speculation that’s dogged Charlene – why, after nearly three years of marriage to Albert, she had not yet provided an heir to the jet-set European principality. Britain’s Kate Middleton became pregnant with Prince George around a year and a half after she married Prince William in April 2011. Until the baby is born, the throne of Monaco, a tiny fiefdom smaller than New York’s Central Park, would pass to Princess Caroline, Albert’s older sister. The constitution had been changed to allow Caroline a claim during Prince Albert’s tenure because subjects were nervous he wouldn’t produce an heir – after years of high-profile rendezvous with the beautiful and famous, said to include Brooke Shields, Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell. Albert has already acknowledged two children, born out of wedlock and thus excluded from the succession: his daughter Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, and his son, Alexandre Coste. Albert’s years of stepping out added fuel to the tabloid rumors, which hardly died down once he settled upon the former Charlene Wittstock. In a 2010 interview, he acknowledged that part of the role of the royal family was to be in the public eye. This baby news is sure to consolidate the couple’s place in the public eye – in ways they would want – and is likely to set off a frenzy in the fashion press as to how she will dress her bump. Demure Princess Charlene is known for her elegant fashion style, patronizing designers such as Giorgio Armani, who designed her couture wedding dress. Since her marriage, Charlene is styled as Her Serene Highness The Princess of Monaco. The previous holder of the style was her husband’s mother, Grace Kelly, who died in 1982.

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Bret Michaels ended a concert in New Hampshire after suffering a medical emergency. Guitarist Pete Evick said on Michaels’ Facebook page the former Poison frontman was three songs into his set in Manchester on Thursday when he rushed from the stage. A crew member said Michaels’ blood sugar was extremely low. The singer was diagnosed with diabetes as a child. Evick said Michaels returned to the stage, telling fans he couldn’t continue performing. Evick said when he went to the band’s bus to check on Michaels, “he could barely speak, but begged me to apologize to the fans.” On Twitter and Facebook, Michaels thanked paramedics who helped him. In 2009, the rocker was performing at the Tony Awards when he was hit in the head with a set piece. He suffered injuries that he claimed contributed to a brain hemorrhage that nearly killed him.

Instagram record for Kim, Kanye wedding photo LONDON – A photo of reality TV star Kim Kardashian kissing rapper Kanye West on their wedding day has broken the record for the most likes on Instagram. A European spokesperson for the photo-sharing app said Friday the picture, shared from Kardashian’s account, received 1.96 million likes, becoming the most popular post on the app so far. The wedding snap has overtaken a photograph shared by pop star Justin Bieber posted five months ago, showing actress Selena Gomez embracing him, which received 1.83 million likes. Kardashian and West were married on Saturday in a private ceremony at Belvedere Fort in Florence.

Banks to lead new daytime talk show NEW YORK – Tyra Banks will lead a new TV show with a panel of experts talking about fashion, entertainment and other

lifestyle topics starting next year. Disney-ABC Domestic Television said Friday it would distribute the daytime show to TV stations across the country. It will be similar to “The View” or “The Talk” with a group of hosts, and Banks will be executive producer of the show along with being on the air. Other panelists were not named on Friday. The company said the show, which doesn’t have a name yet, will “motivate people to improve and enhance their lives by providing cutting edge guidance.”

Man who accosted Pitt pleads no contest to battery LOS ANGELES – A man who accosted Brad Pitt on a red carpet pleaded no contest to battery Friday and was ordered to stay away from the actor and Hollywood red carpet events. Vitalii Sediuk entered the plea during a court appearance Friday afternoon, two days after he leaped from a fan area and made contact with Pitt at the “Maleficent” premiere. He was sentenced to three years of probation and to attend a year’s worth of psychological counseling. Sediuk, 25, was also ordered to stay away from Pitt’s partner, Angelina Jolie, and stay 500 yards away from the Hollywood block where movie premieres and the Academy Awards are hosted. He was also ordered to stay away from LA Live, a downtown entertainment complex where Sediuk crashed the Grammy Awards in 2013. He was charged earlier Friday with four misdemeanors, including assault and two counts governing conduct at sporting and entertainment events. He also pleaded no contest to unlawful activity at a sporting or entertainment event and the remaining counts were dropped. Sediuk is a former journalist for the Ukrainian TV station 1+1, which fired him roughly three weeks ago. Sediuk is expected to be released from custody Friday afternoon. His attorney Anthony Willoughby said he expected the stayaway orders against his client to be lifted after a year if his client behaves. Sediuk’s antics have repeatedly brought him too close for comfort to Hollywood’s elite.

KINGS ??????? 3 X

HAWKS XXXX SERIES SERIES, TIED, 3-3 X-X Hawks’ quick hits



Kane, Crawford shake off slow starts to series By JOEY KAUFMAN LOS ANGELES – Chants of “We want the cup, we want the cup” echoed throughout the upper rafters of the Staples Center on Friday night. For good reason. Just moments earlier, a low shot on the power play from defenseman Alec Martinez had broken a 2-2 tie and positioned the Kings within 12 minutes of earning a trip to their second appearance in the Stanley Cup Final in three years. They sensed it, and the chants continued as a result. They were close. Again. But no more than a halfhour later, a slightly different and certainly quieter chant broke out. “Chi-Town, baby!” a middle-aged man in a buzzcut bellowed. “Chi-Town,” another responded. A small contingent of Blackhawks fans lingered in the arena’s last row to bask in, yes, a victory. They exchanged high-fives. They, too, were now close. For the second consecutive game, the feisty Hawks held off elimination against the Kings in this Western Conference Final, topping them by a score of 4-3 in Game 6. The series is tied, 3-3. Game 7 is Sunday at the United Center. And 2,000 miles east, chants of “We want the cup” can resume. Thank Patrick Kane for that. Although the Hawks’ forward was held without a goal in the first three games of the series, the talented forward has delivered lately. Kane posted four points in the Game 5 overtime victory Wednesday night in Chicago. Two nights later, in another elimination contest, he responded by netting two goals, including the all-important game-winner with less than four minutes left in the third period. “It’s unbelievable,” Jonathan Toews said of his topline teammate. “I looked at him, I think it was about a minute left, I think there was a stoppage of play and I almost started laughing. It’s amazing what he can do in these big games, when our season is on the line and no-

And the Hawks held on to their one-goal lead for dear life. Since 2009, the Hawks are 8-0 on the road in Game 6s. For Kane, his slow start to the series is a distance memo-

ry. And he’s not alone in that regard, either. It’s no secret that goaltender Corey Crawford has experienced similar struggles at moments in this series, especially the last time the Hawks visited L.A. After a 5-2 loss in Game 4, Crawford allegedly sprayed a water bottle in a heckling fan’s face, prompting the fan to file a complaint with the Los Angeles Police Department. It seemed to suggest a moment of frustration. Although

Crawford posted a solid outing in Game 1, giving up just a single goal, over the three losses in Games 2, 3 and 4, Los Angeles put 13 goals past him on 82 shots At this point, it looks to be water under the bridge. Although he was greeted by a handful of taunts of “Crawford, Crawford” by the home crowd throughout the game, he shrugged them off. After holding the Kings scoreless during two overtime periods in Game 5,

Crawford saved 26 shots Friday, including 13 over a second period where he stopped a handful of opportunities on a Los Angles power play. It was an effort that more than matched Kings goalie in Jonathan Quick. And it kept the Hawks in the game, enough, for Kane’s heroics in the waning moments. Come Sunday, they’ll get yet another chance to stave off elimination and keep alive dreams of holding onto the Cup.

Feisty Hawks show no sign of quitting By MARK LAZERUS LOS ANGELES – As their teammates scuffled around the Kings net after the second-period horn, Jonathan Quick and Corey Crawford skated off to their benches. But Quick made a bit of a detour when he saw Crawford standing at the blue line watching the action, jawing at Crawford and bumping him with his left shoulder, looking angry, hot and bothered. Crawford barely budged, his face stone cold, almost mockingly shaking his gloves as if to say, “Let’s go.” Yes, there’s plenty of fight left in these Blackhawks. Duncan Keith tied Game 6 with 8:26 left and Patrick Kane – in another virtuoso performance in a postseason career full of them – won it with 3:45 to go as the Hawks once again staved off elimination, beating the Los Angeles Kings 4-3 in a tremendous battle at Staples Center on Friday night. Their second straight win on the brink of elimination, the Hawks set the stage for a Game 7 showdown at the United Center on Sunday night – winner goes to the Stanley Cup Final. The Kings already have won two Game 7s on the road this postseason, but the Hawks are now 13-0 in Games 5-7 since last spring, and 5-0 when facing elimination. The Hawks may be tired.

• Ending power-play woes For 24 straight power plays away from the United Center, the Blackhawks came away empty-handed. That changed less than two minutes into the start of the second period on Friday night when Patrick Kane scored on a goal that was assisted by Patrick Sharp and Brent Seabrook. The Hawks failed to score on a power-play opportunity in the first frame, not even getting a shot on goal. They’d add another power-play score later. • Third-period surge The Hawks could have faded. The Kings took a 3-2 lead during the third period after a pair of goals in a matter of minutes. But the response was quick. A Duncan Keith goal at the midway point, and then Kane followed up with his second goal of the night with less than five minutes to go in the period. • Clean game No whistles were called on the Blackhawks for about half the game Friday night. That ended when Seabrook was whistled for interference. For the game, they had just two penalties.

Patrick Kane celebrates his second-period goal against the Kings on Friday in Los Angeles. They may be running on fumes, even. They may be up against a team every bit as good – if not better – than they are. But they don’t do moral victories. “I don’t think we look at [the season] as a success if we don’t win,” Duncan Keith said before the game. “I don’t think anybody in our room’s satisfied with just getting to the Western Conference finals.” Both teams came out hesitant and sloppy in the early

going. But shortly after the Hawks slogged through their 24th straight road power play without a goal, the Kings struck first. Jarret Stoll beat Brent Seabrook to the puck behind the Hawks net and fed a charging Dwight King in the slot. King, with plenty of time and space, ripped a shot past Crawford to give the Kings a 1-0 lead. But things changed quickly in the second period. Just 20 seconds in, Anze Kopitar was

sent to the box for holding Jonathan Toews, and Kane executed a perfect little give-and-go with Jonathan Toews for his first goal of the series, and the Hawks’ first road power-play goal since Game 1 against St. Louis. A couple of minutes later, Ben Smith took a Patrick Sharp pass and raced in on Quick, but was steered wide. But a quick-thinking and quick-handed Smith snuck the puck in behind Quick, banking it in off Quick’s skate

for a 2-1 lead, leaving Staples Center stunned into silence. From there, the game started to resemble Game 5 – a track meet with end-to-end rushes and chances both ways. The pace favored the Hawks, and Crawford was sensational throughout. While Quick made the biggest stop of the period – getting his glove on a Sharp shot on a two-on-none with Marcus Kruger – it was Crawford who starred. In one sequence midway through the period, the Kings’ vaunted “70s Line” bombarded Crawford with point-blank chances, only to come up empty each time. Crawford stopped 13 shots in the second period alone. But the Kings, every bit as resilient as the Hawks, weren’t done. Drew Doughty and Alec Martinez scored less than two minutes apart early in the third period to give the Kings a 3-2 lead and reawaken the arena. But at their most desperate, the Hawks were at their best. Keith scored off a terrific Kane setup at 11:34 after a frantic couple of minutes. Then, at 16:15, Kane hung on to the puck as he skated around the offensive zone before he found his shooting lane, firing through an Andrew Shaw screen and sending the Kings to their second straight defeat, and sending the Hawks back to Chicago for a winner-takeall Game 7.

• Late goal Seventeen minutes into the start of Game 6, Corey Crawford looked sharp. As disappointing as the Hawks’ netminder has been at times during this series – the two previous games in Los Angeles being notable examples – he came out hot, stopping the first seven shots on goal. But in the waning moments of the period, he cracked. Dwight King placed a shot past him to get the scoring started. It marred an otherwise great opening. • Clearing the zone For as much attention as Crawford’s play has prompted, he hasn’t been helped by his defensive unit that can’t quite seem to clear the puck from the zone at certain moments. The first-period goal came after they failed to clear the puck from the zone, and it similarly happened midway through the third period when Drew Doughty assisted an Alec Martinez power-play goal after they were able to hang around. • Face-offs Jeff Carter continues to give the Kings opportunities because he takes the puck. Carter took 11 of 18 and gave Los Angeles plenty of scoring chances for the so-called “That 70s Line.” STARS OF THE GAME • Patrick Kane Although he struggled early in this series, Kane has been pretty hot as of late. He had four points in the Game 5 overtime victory, and notched a power-play goal Friday night in the second period and then the game-winner in the third. • Corey Crawford With the possible exception of Game 1, it was probably his best game of the series. • Brent Seabrook After the Hawks fell behind early, Seabrook helped get the Hawks back in it by assisting on goals from Kane and Ben Smith within a two-minute span during the second period. TWEET, TWEET Blackhawks-Kings should really be decided by a goalie fight.

@SBN_Ricky, Ricky O’Donnell Steve Ballmer owns the Clippers. Patrick Kane owns the Kings.

@FauxJohnMadden WHAT THEY’RE SAYING “Going into their building is tough, but we’ve proven we can go in there and win, so it’s just a matter of getting that right mindset.” – The Kings’ Dustin Brown on a Game 7 at the United Center “I think we can look at some situations in the past that would have haunted us a little more and we weren’t able to overcome. But we give up a one-goal lead and go down one goal with two back-to-back goals against in the third there and it never feels good. But we didn’t stop and we just knew we wanted to get back into it and we found a way. It’s nice to see that resiliency.” – The Hawks’ Jonathan Toews on the third-period comeback – Compiled by Joey Kaufman

National title for Rock Valley softball team, freshman Baer Over the last month of the softball season, Breanna Baer and her teammates thrived on drama. Baer and the rest of the Rock Valley College squad showed plenty of flair, winning four one-run games in the postseason on the way to winning the National Junior College Athletic Association Division III national championship. “For some reason, we always made our games really exciting,” said Baer, a Johnsburg graduate who was the team’s starting designated player. Baer, a freshman who batted .342 this season, played her part in the dramatic finishes. Breanna In the team’s Region IV champiBaer onship game May 3 against College of DuPage, Baer’s seventh-inning double drove in the tying and winning runs in an 8-7 victory that sent the team to the national tournament in Rochester, Minnesota. Against Rochester Community and Technical College in the NJCAA’s opening round, Baer delivered a game-tying double in the seventh inning of another 8-7 victory for the third-seeded Golden Eagles. “When we need to get runners in, I felt clutch in that area,” said Baer, who drove in 36 runs and had five home runs for Rock Valley (42-9). Rock Valley’s unbeaten run at nationals continued with a 2-0 win against second-seeded Herkimer County Community College of New York and a 2-1 triumph over top-seeded Brookdale Community College from New Jersey. In the May 17 championship game, a rematch with Herkimer, Rock Valley pulled off a 2-1 victory and its first national title in softball. “I told them the only thing that matters is if you have one more run than the other team,” Rock Valley coach Darin Monroe said. “They kind of took that to an extreme in the tournament.” Baer provided plenty of pop in a deep Rock Valley lineup. Monroe said he regularly put Baer in the No. 6 spot in the order behind NJCAA All-Americans Danielle Walker, who hit .503 as the team’s shortstop, and Kaytee Keefe, who batted .462 while playing first base. “She brought depth to our lineup,” Monroe said of Baer. “She made us dangerous because she was hitting after two All-Americans in our lineup. Teams knew about her power, so they had to pitch to Danielle and Kaytee.” Monroe credited Baer with improvements on and off the field throughout the season. “She really matured throughout the year, not just athletically, but academically and socially,” Monroe said. “I think she’ll continue to do that.” “I feel a lot more mentally strong,” Baer said. Along with her personal growth came an expanded knowledge of how to handle different pitchers and hitting in various game situations. “In high school, I just went up there and swung the bat,” she said. “I feel like now, I’m a lot more focused on the game.” Missouri Valley monster Kaczmarski: Prairie Ridge grad Kevin Kaczmarski was named this spring to the All-Missouri Valley Conference first team and All-Defensive teams in baseball. A junior outfielder at Evansville University, Kaczmarski guided the team to the MVC regular-season championship, thanks to his team-leading .315 batting average, 19 doubles and 50 RBIs. He also led the Aces (34-21) with a .502 slugging percentage and five triples. As the team’s center fielder, Kaczmarski posted a .992 fielding percentage and made only one error while starting all 55 games for Evansville. NAIA standout D’Angelo: McHenry West grad Laura D’Angelo earned NAIA All-American honors May 24 as a member of Olivet Nazarene University’s 4x400-meter relay team. D’Angelo, the only freshman on the relay squad, ran the third leg and helped ONU place sixth in 3:49.65. ONU finished 12th in the team standings out of 51 teams at the event in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Kittle claims honors: D-III Anderson (Indiana) University junior Max Kittle earned All-America honors at the NCAA championships in Geneva, Ohio, finishing eighth in the 400-meter hurdles in 52.89 seconds. Kittle’s outdoor season also was highlighted by winning the MVP award among track events at the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference meet last month. He won the 100 (14.76) and 400 (52.51) hurdles events. His 400 hurdles time set a league record and ranks as the fourth-fastest time in school history. At the HCAC meet, Kittle also was a member of the school’s victorious 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams. Warhawks winner Hansen: Jacobs grad Maggie Hansen was part of a Wisconsin-Whitewater softball team that finished third in the nation last weekend at the NCAA D-III championships in Tyler, Texas. Hansen, a sophomore infielder, played in 20 games this season, starting one. The Warhawks set a school record for hits (500) this season, and their win total ranked second in program history. The team’s 297 runs this season is the third-highest single-season total. • Barry Bottino writes a weekly column and a blog about local college athletes for the Northwest Herald.

Huntley players celebrate after Autumn Maraviglia scored the winning goal against Harlem in a penalty kick shootout during the Class 3A Auburn Sectional final Friday in Rockford.


Galason, Huntley stop Harlem By CHRIS CASEY ROCKFORD – When a goalkeeper guesses wrong in a shootout, the result will usually be a goal. Huntley’s Jessica Galason had a different idea. The senior goalkeeper guessed left, and the ball was shot down the middle. As Galason fell, she reached back to get enough of her hand on the ball to keep if out of the net. That would be the last shot she faced as sophomore Autumn Maraviglia scored to win the Class 3A Auburn Sectional championship, 1-0 (6-5 in penalties), over Harlem. “To make a save while you are diving one way, and then reach back and get enough of a hand on the ball to keep it out. ... Wow,” coach Kris Grabner said. “Easily one of the best saves I have ever seen.”

Scoreboard Friday’s championship Huntley 1, Harlem 0 (6-5 PKs)

• Huntley will play St. Charles East at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Lake Park Supersectional. “When it goes to penalties, it’s always nerve-racking,” Galason said. “You really just have to guess, and kind of react. We’re not supposed to save those, so I just do my best.” The match was full of chances and physical play in both directions. The physicality got to the point where Grabner and Harlem coach Brad Heidenreich had to be separated on the sideline in the first half after exchanging words. The referee stopped the match and had a meeting with both coaches.

“Both of our teams play the same kind of game,” Grabner said. “I am OK with the physicality, but when you say something that disrespects my players, that is not OK with me.” Just before the coach interaction, Huntley’s Beth Parks got a through ball from Taryn Jakubowski and was on a breakaway against Harlem goalkeeper Alyssa Sickler. Parks shot the ball past Sickler, but a defender was able to clear. Parks got the rebound and shot the ball off the post and out of play. In the second half, the match opened up, with both teams creating chances. With 32 minutes remaining, Jakubowski had a free kick, which she sent toward Sickler. Senior midfielder Abby Nordeen collided with Sickler and the ball was cleared. Nordeen suffered a bloody nose, and sat the remainder of the game. “I wanted to go back in so bad-

ly,” Nordeen said. “It’s hard to sit out and not be able to help the team win.” Huntley (19-6) was able to hold off Huskies star forward Emily Scott just long enough to get the game into overtime and penalty kicks. In overtime, Harlem (21-2) had a chance when Scott got free, and made a series of moves to try and lose Huntley’s Rachel Zobott, but was unable to do so. Zobott blocked the shot and cleared. Once the match reached the shootout, Huntley got goals from Zobott, Jakubowski, Deanna Hecht, Parks, Maraviglia, and, hurt nose and all, Nordeen. “I was a little nervous seeing as I hadn’t touched a ball in over 20 minutes,” Nordeen said. Our team played amazing today and I’m so happy we’re moving on and can play again together.” Huntley will take on St. Charles East at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Lake Park Supersectional.

NORTHWEST HERALD Marian Central quarterback Billy Bahl and DundeeCrown’s Malik Dunner each had an eventful Friday when it comes to where both could end up playing college football. Bahl received a scholarship offer from Rutgers, continuing a busy month during which the 6-foot-4, 210-pound junior has received offers from Illinois State, Connecticut, Ball State, Akron, Bowling Green and Central Michigan. Bahl previously received offers from Western Michigan, Miami (Ohio), Buffalo, Ohio, Toledo and South Dakota. Bahl led the area last season with 2,510 passing yards. He also threw for 29 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Dunner, meanwhile, picked up his first offer Friday from Ball State of the Mid-American Conference. Dunner, who transferred to D-C from Elgin before last season, proved to be a versatile performer for the Chargers. The 5-foot-10, 186-pound junior showed big-play potential not only on offense, where he fit into a talented D-C backfield at running back, but also as a defensive back and on special teams. He averaged 14.3 yards a carry for D-C last season, rushing for four touchdowns and 230 yards on only 16 carries. Dunner also stood out as one of the Chargers’ better defensive players.

Personal records fall on Day 1 at state Grunt work: South’s Hedge in shot put final By JOE STEVENSON CHARLESTON – Crystal Lake South shot putter Kyle Hedge put together everything he had been working on for his best throw at the most opportune time. The spin was fast and powerful. His release was perfect. And the Gators’ junior also added his new finishing touch. “I had a lot of power on the end, a lot of explosion,” Hedge said. “I’ve started using a grunt, and that helped a lot.” Hedge’s throw was 58 feet, 54 inches, putting him in third place after Friday’s preliminaries in the Class 3A shot put at the boys track and field state meet at Eastern Illinois University’s O’Brien Stadium. It was Hedge’s career-best throw by 2 feet, 3 inches, but he wants more in Saturday’s finals. “If I put it together even more, I can hit a bigger one,” Hedge said. His third throw in the prelims was 56-11, his second-best career throw by more than a foot. Crystal Lake South’s 4x800-meter relay team of Drew Kopfman, Kyle Radosevich, Jon Prus and David Lenzini also qualified in 7:53.47 for the 12-member final field. Other area qualifiers in Class 3A were Cary-Grove’s Ricky Hurley (discus), McHenry’s Kyle Postal (high jump) and Jesse Reiser (1,600). Reiser won his 1,600 heat and also will run in the 3,200 meters finals, a race that is run only on Saturday at state. South’s 4x800 qualification was particularly sweet for Lenzini, a senior who does not plan on runClark Brooks for Shaw Media ning in college, but who has qualCrystal Lake South’s Kyle Hedge competes in the Class 3A shot put during Friday’s preliminar- ified in that relay all four years of ies at the state meet in Charleston.

Clark Brooks for Shaw Media

McHenry’s Kyle Postal competes in the Class 3A high jump Friday. He qualified for the final. “This is all about four years of hard work,” Lenzini said. “I love competing and Jon [Prus] put me in a good place [for the anchor leg]. I’m really pumped for this.” Two of the three previous years, the Gators had the 13th-fastest qualifying time, missing the finals by one spot. “I’m going to miss graduation now, but I’m good with that,” Lenzini said. Postal made 6-5 in each of his previous two meets and cleared 6-4 in the high jump to qualify. “My mark was off at first and I was a little nervous,” Postal said. “I moved it back and made 6-4 on my first jump. That was a huge relief. My legs feel good.” Postal has made 6-6 in practice and hopes to get at least that in the finals. The 1,600 qualification was basically a formality for Reiser, one of the premier distance runners in the state and a favorite in the 3,200. He won his heat in 4:16.60. “My coach [assistant Jim Wheeler] told me to run as easy as possible to qualify,” Reiser said. “I’m a competitor, though, and at

the end I wanted to win.” Hurley fouled on two of his discus attempts, but his throw of 169-9 has him in second place heading into the finals. “I’m still just irritated at the way I threw,” Hurley said. “If I threw what I was in warmups, I’d be in solid second place that would keep me there. I couldn’t get a grip on it at all.” Tendinitis in Hurley’s right hand kept him from making the shot put finals. He had a special brace, but the IHSA ruled he could not throw with it, even though he was allowed to use it in the sectional. C-G’s Brad Wolter was in on two narrow misses Friday in the 400 and the 4x400. Wolter ran his career-best 49.25 in the 400 and was 10th by five-hundredths of a second. He also anchored the Trojans’ 4x400 relay with Robbie Gleeson, Michael Saxon and Daniel Speer, where they ran 3:20.54 and missed by two spots. Wolter was not too disappointed after the 400. “I couldn’t be happier,” he said. “I was happy to be here and now to run that time. I’m happy with it.” Wolter will attend Northern Illinois University and plans on running club track and field there. Huntley junior sprinter Connor Boos finished off a strong season by running in four events – 100, 200, 4x100 and 4x200 – but did not make any finals. “It’s great. It’s an honor to be able to run and represent Huntley here in four events,” Boos said. “I was really looking forward to running against these guys and having fun out there. I was hoping to make the 200 finals, but it didn’t happen.”

Johnsburg’s 4x800 relay keeps getting faster, advances to final in Class 2A By JOE STEVENSON CHARLESTON – Johnsburg junior Sam Blankenship lobbied to run a different race early this spring. Blankenship formerly was a 110-meter high hurdler and sprinter, but he had another event in mind. “At the beginning of the season, I joked with coach [Chris Setzler] that I wanted to run in the 4x800 [meter relay],” Blankenship said. It’s no joke now, however, as Blankenship and the Skyhawks’ 4x800 relay team qualified for the Class 2A finals Friday at the boys

track and field state meet at Eastern Illinois University’s O’Brien Stadium. Blankenship, Matt Stelmasek, Mark Gaura and Noah Miller ran 8:03.71, a school-record time for their fourth consecutive race and the fifth-fastest qualifying time. Marengo’s Jarrell Jackson (100 meters) and Woodstock North’s Jimmy Krenger (pole vault) were the other local qualifiers for Saturday’s Class 2A finals. Jackson ran 10.89 seconds in the 100 for the second-fastest qualifying time. Krenger cleared 13 feet without a miss to qualify in the pole vault. Setzler decided to scratch Blan-

kenship from the 400 so he could conserve his energy for the 4x800, where the Skyhawks can win the first medal for their school since 2009, when Steve Seydel was fifth in the Class 2A 400. “I think they have it in them to break Sam 8:00,” Setzler said. Blankenship “That could get them in the top three. They’ve run a personal-best and school record every time they ran that race.” Johnsburg finished second in the McHenry County Meet, the first time that quartet ran together. The

Skyhawks took third in the Fox Valley Conference Meet. “That really helped us [getting Sam],” Gaura said. “That gave us an opportunity.” The Skyhawks each want to knock another second off in the finals to break 8:00. “It’d be really cool [to medal], this is what we’ve trained so hard for,” Blankenship said. Jackson, a sophomore, had hoped to qualify in the 100 and 200, but made it only in the 100 with the third-fastest time behind Sycamore’s Dion Hooker (10.871) and Rich Central’s Franklin Hunt (10.873). “It was kind of overwhelming, I

was really nervous when I walked out here,” Jackson said. “Once the gun went off, I knew I was going to take first. I got out of the blocks well.” Krenger benefited from some special coaching as former Thunder vaulter Jon Walsh, the 2012 Class 2A state champion, was at the meet and is staying with Krenger’s family. “He’s coaching me up,” Krenger said. “I feel pretty good. I feel like I can do better. I made 13-0 with no scratches, so I’m pretty confident.” Richmond-Burton’s James Kaht, the Class 2A 1,600 runner-up last season, did not make the finals in that race.


Barrington overwhelms C-G in regional final By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO

Scoreboard CARY – The Cary-Grove softball team knew it could not let Barrington take an early lead, no matter how small, in Friday’s Class 4A C-G Regional final. Little room for error led C-G coach Tammy Olson to replace starting pitcher Amanda DeGroote with Lauren Stanley after top-seeded Barrington started the bottom of the first inning with the first two batters reaching on a hit by pitch and walk. But the pitching change didn’t faze the Fillies. Jennifer Inamoto hit a three-run homer to give

Friday’s championship Barrington 10, Cary-Grove 0 (5 inn.) Barrington a 3-0 lead. Barrington added seven runs in the second en route to a 10-0 five-inning win, giving the Fillies (25-11) their 13th consecutive regional title. “That first inning really set the tone,” C-G senior center fielder Lisa Semro said. “It was hard to come back from that first one. On our side, we didn’t get started right away. ... We knew we had to be on our best game possible.” Fillies junior pitcher Keenan

Dolezal (24-9) held the Trojans (1913) to one hit, Caitlin Adams’ single to lead off the fourth. The Trojans failed to advance Adams with the next three batters, though Brianne Prank’s fly ball came close before it was caught on the center field warning track. Inamoto finished with five RBIs for Barrington. C-G had three players reach base, including a walk and hit by pitch. The second-seeded Trojans used three different pitchers. Caroline Zasadil, C-G’s third pitcher of the game, threw 32/3 innings, allowing a run on four hits. “All decisions when you pull players are tough,” Olson said.

“You don’t want to do that. You believe in them, and they’ve got to keep going and prove they’ve earned that right. Amanda took us through the season and did a good job with that. It’s about being ready for that.” The loss ends the career for C-G’s six seniors, including fouryear players Semro, Jaime Deering and Amy Clemment and three-year player Sarah Kendeigh. During the past four seasons, C-G went 96-28. “The Cary-Grove chemistry is Sarah Nader – crazy,” Deering said. “Everyone, the community, the team is so Cary-Grove’s Colleen Kaveney (left) and Caroline Zasadil built in to the Cary-Grove tradi- walk off the field after the Trojans’ 10-0 loss to Barrington in the Class 4A Cary-Grove Regional final Friday. tion.

Cubs not waiting on Wrigley rehab By GORDON WITTENMYER MILWAUKEE – Just wake up the Cubs when the new clubhouse and batting cages are done. They’re tired of all the politics, snafus, false starts and broken promises over Wrigley Field renovations. Maybe by then their fiveyear baseball nightmare will be over, too. Until then, no more talk about new bullpens and clubhouses until a shovel is in the ground, please. “They told us again that we were going to get approved, and it didn’t get approved, so I know a lot of guys are not happy about that,” said first baseman Anthony Rizzo, one of two Cubs signed beyond 2016. “It’s kind of a shame because we get excited about it. Give them credit that they’re working their tails off. But again it got shut down, and it was kind of a bummer because we all thought it was going to happen. “Now it’s just kind of wait and see like everybody else.” Rizzo, who, like shortstop Starlin Castro, is signed through 2019, said he follows the renovation saga. But the way he sounded Friday, before the Cubs’ 11-5 loss to first-place Milwaukee, he and teammates might be done with that. “What’s going to be nice about the new renovations is we’re going to have all the topnotch stuff,” he said. “The new clubhouse is going to be the best in the game. … “It’s just [we get] kind of sick of hearing it’s going to be done, and just want to see it get done.” The latest broken promise involved ownership’s video-accompanied media blitz last week that vowed to move forward with a broader, more expansive – and expensive – plan that would include a new clubhouse and batting cages by the start of 2016. That included business president Crane Kenney’s assertion that the city was on board with the new plans, and that it would be ready to present to the landmark commission next week – until the mayor put the brakes on the timeline because

Braun, Brewers pound Cubs MILWAUKEE – Ryan Braun homered to highlight a five-run first inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cubs, 11-5, Friday night. Braun had three hits and three RBIs for Milwaukee, which has won 25 of its last 31 games against the Cubs. Travis Wood (5-5) turned in his shortest outing of the season when he lasted only 22/3 innings. He gave up 10 hits and seven earned runs for the Cubs (19-33), who have the worst record in the majors. The Cubs, shut out in their past two games at San Francisco, ended its scoreless streak at 22 innings.

– The Associated Press of newly added alterations to the bricks and ivy. Kenney has been on a personal public relations campaign across Chicago airwaves late in the week to spread the renovation gospel in the wake of the latest stutter-step. “I’ve only been here for a few years, and guys before me have heard it before, [that] changes were going to happen,” Rizzo said, “and I don’t know what’s going on.” Pitcher Carlos Villanueva, who relieved hard-hit starter Travis Wood in Friday’s third, said one of the reasons he signed before last season was the promise that the Cubs would have a new clubhouse for the start of 2014. “At least I got to see the spring training one, which was really nice,” he said. Jeff Samardzija said he’s been hearing the promises for three years. Now he’s expected to be traded this summer without seeing much more out of the project than some cool slide shows. Said Villanueva: “We can only dream right now.” “Obviously it’s not my job to do it,” Rizzo said. “Obviously we all want it. But when guys are promised things that are going to happen and they don’t happen, they’re not happy about it. When it gets done it’s going to be great. Now it’s just kind of, ‘OK, when it gets done it gets done.’ “

Sox’s rotation starts to build momentum Sale’s next start pushed up to Monday By BRIAN SANDALOW For the Chicago Sun-Times CHICAGO – The Chris Sale-Clayton Kershaw showdown scheduled for Monday night would have been fun. Two of the game’s best pitchers facing off in one of the game’s most iconic venues had a chance to be one of the early highlights of the season. That said, White Sox starting pitching besides Sale these days hasn’t been tough to watch – even if the marquee matchup was canceled when the Sox pushed their ace’s next start up a day to Sunday. The Sox were able to do it after Sale threw only 40 pitches in his rain-shortened outing Tuesday, seizing a chance to get him another home start and keep him on his usual four days of rest. “Whenever they need me or my name is called, I’m going out there. It just so happens to be Sunday, which for me makes sense because I only threw three innings,” Sale said. “So go out there on regular rest and get it going, try to find a groove.” That’s what the Sox rotation has found. Before Friday’s 4-1 loss the San Diego Padres, White Sox starters had a 2.14 ERA and had been holding opponents to a .187 average over the last nine games. On Friday, John Danks threw seven innings and allowed two runs, including a Cameron Maybin solo home run, but more than continued the rotation’s momentum. Danks was part of building that, thanks to Friday and the eight scoreless innings he threw May 24 against the Yankees. “I know he went through the surgery and everything, but just locating and putting it in a spot that was tough to hit, I think that was as good as he’s been,” Sox manager Robin Ventura said. “I know he’s made some adjustments. He’s excited about it and that’s all stuff that goes into it, when you start making adjustments.”

Kennedy, Padres cools off White Sox CHICAGO – Ian Kennedy struck out nine in six strong innings, and Yonder Alonso hit a two-run homer to lead the San Diego Padres past the White Sox, 4-1, on Friday night. Cameron Maybin hit his first home run of the season and Alonso finished with three hits as the Padres ended the Sox’s three-game winning streak. Sox starter John Danks (3-5) followed an impressive outing against the Yankees with seven effective innings against the Padres. Danks allowed two runs and scattered eight hits. He struck out four and walked one.

– The Associated Press The Sox have also had to make adjustments but the rotation has managed to improve. Though that certainly has been helped by Sale, who has thrown nine scoreless innings and struck out 14 since returning from the disabled list, it isn’t all on him. “That number doesn’t just go down by one guy,” Ventura said. “All of them having to be doing something, so I think the improvements Hector [Noesi] had as well as John’s last outing, you’re hopeful that continues, that trend.” Sale was supposed to get his chance to continue it Monday against Kershaw in Los Angeles in a duel that was highly anticipated well before the first pitch. Instead, he’ll face San Diego’s Eric Stults on Sunday and Jose Quintana will get Kershaw on Monday. “I know people would probably like to see that matchup, but we’re thinking about it for us and him, getting back out there as quick as you can without rushing him, too,” Ventura said. “So, this makes sense for us and him, and it has nothing to do with whether it was a (big) matchup and how he was going to pitch in L.A.”


Offense marked by continuity, especially on line By ARTHUR ARKUSH With apologies to Earl Bennett – who reportedly refused a pay cut that would have kept the 2013 offense intact – the Bears still are enjoying unprecedented continuity on the league’s No. 2 scoring unit last year. Nowhere is that continuity more impressive than along the offensive line, where after years of instability, the Bears were one of three teams in the NFL to have the same starting combination up front for all 16 games. They expect to return the same starting five for the first time since 2007, the year after their last Super Bowl appearance. In a league of attrition and turnover, the rarity of the Bears’ O-line staying healthy in 2013, then general manager Phil Emery managing to re-sign 40 percent of the group in the offseason, isn’t lost on sixth-year veteran left guard Matt Slauson. “This is exciting,” said Slauson, who, ironically, discussed continuity at Tues-

Bears quarterback Jordan Palmer calls signals during organized team activities Tuesday in Lake Forest. The Bears’ starting offensive line was intact for all 16 games last season. day’s first organized team activity immediately after fielding questions about his surprising absence. (Slauson is rehabbing from offseason shoulder surgery, as reported by the Chicago Tribune, but told reporters he expects to be ready by training camp) “This is the first time in my career where all five guys have stayed the same. … Hopefully we can build off

all the progress we made last year.” Slauson added that having key backups such as Eben Britton and Taylor Boggs is “huge.” The newness of cohesion isn’t exclusive to Slauson. Running back Matt Forte echoed his blocker’s sentiments on the luxury of already established chemistry helping in sustaining the of-

fense’s success. “I think that’s the first time that’s ever happened in my career, so it’s pretty cool to see everybody, the exact same offense come back, the whole starting offense be there,” Forte said. “The camaraderie of it just makes us play that much better together.” The return of the offensive personnel is certainly by design. Emery has so radically reshaped the defense that it can be easy to gloss over his diligence in keeping the offensive core intact with multiple re-signings, including Slauson, Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall and Roberto Garza, to name a few. Although Slauson, Forte and others have said the focus remains on continued improvement, it’s natural to wonder whether coach Marc Trestman has any concerns about complacency setting in. “I don’t want to say there’s a comfort level, but there’s not a complacent level with how we’re handling things,” Trestman said at the conclusion of Chicago’s rook-

ie minicamp. “… But there certainly is a sense of confidence, a sense that we’ve got a chance to be a very good offense, particularly because those are the guys that have been together, but they’re not taking anything for granted.” The Bears have the makings of one of the best offenses in the league. They also have enough room for improvement that complacency shouldn’t be an option. The Bears’ offense ranked eighth overall a season ago, but 16th rushing and 19th in goalto-go situations. Those are areas Slauson thinks are likely to see improvement because of the unity up front, as well as the strides he expects from Kyle Long and Jordan Mills, now entering their second seasons. “Offensive line play isn’t necessarily about being extremely athletic or extremely strong – it’s about knowing how to work with the guy next to you,” he said. “We have the ability to pick up where we left off. We just have to make sure we do it because this offense has so much potential.”

In a flash, Federer takes over By CHRIS LEHOURITES

Ferrer perfect through their opening two matches, the pressure is on the others to keep their level high. “It wasn’t easy because once you start being passive, you lose kind of the confidence to step in,” Djokovic said of his win. “That’s what happened maybe in the end of the third and a little bit of the fourth.” Of course, that’s nothing compared to the women’s tournament, where third-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska followed defending champion Serena Williams and Li Na out of the tournament. That leaves Simona Halep, who plays Saturday, as the highest-seeded player in the draw at No. 4. It also leaves 2012 French Open champion Maria Sharapova as the favorite after her 6-0, 6-0 rout Friday. The woman who beat Williams, Garbine Muguruza of Spain, also advanced to the fourth round. Federer and Djokovic, however, were expected to win, and they did. Tursunov, with an 0-4 record against Federer heading into the match, wasn’t, and he didn’t. “Overall, the first two sets ... I felt that it was a fairly even battle out there,” said Tursunov, who was broken only once in the first two sets. “It’s hard for me to predict, but definitely playing on one leg is not going to make things easier. Tough luck for me, but hopefully I’ll get him somewhere else.”

Friday in Paris

The Associated Press PARIS – In what seemed like a flash, and in what surely felt like a flash of pain for his opponent, Roger Federer went from vulnerable to commanding. It was that quick. Federer lost a second-set tiebreaker Friday to Dmitry Tursunov, and that surely did not bode well for the 17-time Grand Slam champion. Then Tursunov felt a split second of discomfort in his left hip. And that was it. Federer was back on track at the French Open, on his way to a 7-5, 6-7 (7), 6-2, 6-4 victory and into the second week of a major tournament yet again. “Everything that was out of his control, like moving defense, that’s when it got difficult,” said Federer, who advanced to the fourth round at Roland Garros for the 10th straight year. “Clearly, on the clay, it’s difficult to hit three great shots in a row. So I tried to extend the rallies, but serve nice and stay aggressive throughout. And I think that was a bit too much for his hip, or whatever it was.” It was something of an escape for Federer, who lost a set for the first time at this year’s tournament. Then again, Novak Djokovic also

PARIS – A look at the French Open on Friday: Men’s seeded winners: No. 2 Novak Djokovic, No. 4 Roger Federer, No. 5 Tomas Berdych, No. 8 Milos Raonic, No. 10 John Isner, No. 13 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, No. 18 Ernests Gulbis. Men’s seeded losers: No. 17 Tommy Robredo, No. 22 Jerzy Janowicz, No. 25 Marin Cilic, No. 29 Gilles Simon, No. 31 Dmitry Tursunov. Women’s seeded winners: No. 7 Maria Sharapova, No. 8 Angelique Kerber, No. 14 Carla Suarez Navarro, No. 18 Eugenie Bouchard, No. 19 Samantha Stosur. Women’s seeded losers: No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska, No. 9 Dominika Cibulkova, No. 31 Daniela Hantuchova. Stat of the Day: 1 – Number of service breaks in Isner’s 7-6 (13), 7-6 (3), 6-7 (5), 7-5 victory over Robredo. Isner saved all 13 break points he faced and converted 1 of 6 that he earned. Quote of the Day: “It’s an ouchy one.” – Tursunov, asked what sort of injury he was bothered by during his four-set loss to Federer. – The Associated Press lost a set Friday before advancing with a 6-3, 6-2, 6-7 (2), 6-4 win over 25th-seeded Marin Cilic.

Seattle Seahawks’ Richard Sherman wears Beats headphones before a preseason NFL football game against the Denver Broncos in 2013. Apple’s $3 billion purchase of Beats Electronics, by far the company’s largest acquisition, is at least in part recognition that Beats founders Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine might be able to help Apple incorporate more style and flair into its premium technology gadgets – especially a coming wave of wearable devices.

Tech meets fashion Apple’s Beats buy joins tech and street-wise style By BARBARA ORTUTAY The Associated Press NEW YORK – Beats Electronics’ colorful, oversized headphones serve as a fashion accessory to cool kids riding the New York City subway, but as tech companies such as Apple, Samsung and others are discovering, wearable gadgets such as smartwatches and Google Glass still have a long way to go to become trendy, must-have consumer items. Apple’s $3 billion purchase of Beats Electronics, by far the company’s largest acquisition, is at least in part recognition that Beats founders Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine might be able to help Apple incorporate more style and flair into its premium technology gadgets – especially a coming wave of wearable devices. Technology companies see wearables as an important area of growth beyond smartphones and tablets, and many are slowly realizing that if they expect people to wear gadgets – be they bracelets to monitor fitness activity, smartwatches to substitute smartphones or Internet-connected goggles – those devices must focus as much on form as function. So far, the most noteworthy wearables have hardly been stylish. The standard Google Glass product looks more like something out of Star Trek than a fashion accessory. Fitness bands meant to be worn 24 hours a day are difficult to match with evening gowns or even a suit and tie. “I guess they are accessories, but I would not say they are high fashion,” said Alison Minton, a blogger

who writes about accessories, jewelry and handbags on “There’s a ways to go before they could be considered high fashion in the way Chanel would be, or Prada.” To change that, tech companies are beginning to attract top talent from the world of fashion. Apple’s move comes less than a year after the iPhone and iPad inventor hired Angela Ahrendts, a respected executive who helped mold Burberry into the popular luxury brand it is today. In recent weeks, Google lured fashion and marketing executive Ivy Ross, who’s worked for Calvin Klein, the Gap and Coach, to head its Google Glass unit. “With your help, I look forward to answering the seemingly simple, but truly audacious questions Glass poses: Can technology be something that frees us up and keeps us in the moment, rather than taking us out of it? Can it help us look up and out at the world around us, and the people who share it with us?” Rossin wrote in a Google Plus post. For Ahrendts, Apple is already a luxury brand. Three years before she was hired at Apple last fall, she signaled her admiration for Apple in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. “I don’t look at Gucci or Chanel or anyone,” Ahrendts told the newspaper in 2010. “If I look to any company as a model, it’s Apple. They’re a brilliant design company working to create a lifestyle, and that’s the way I see us.” To be sure, Apple has long been a

trendsetter when it comes to producing elegant gadgets. Jony Ive, who designed the iPod, iPhone, iPad and Apple’s newest mobile software system iOS7, still serves as the company’s chief style visionary. But Dr. Dre and Iovine have created wildly popular headphones that young hipsters, celebrities and professional athletes adorn themselves with – even when they’re not listening to music. Dre and Iovine’s input will be highly valued as Apple looks to introduce its next breakthrough device. The cultural coming-together of geeks and fashionistas is happening slowly, said Michael Londrigan, dean of academic affairs at LIM College, a fashion school in New York City. Apple’s hiring of Ahrendts, he added, “was really the start of it.” “Overall, the goal is to marry the function with the fashion, creating a wearable technology that is sort of seamless.” Indeed, the bulky nature of many wearable gadgets is what stops many people from considering them, says Minton. To her, fitness bands are reminiscent of “gigantic, oversized watches they had when I was a kid.” You know, the ones with the calculator built in. “It doesn’t look like something an adult would really wear. It’s functional, but when you care about fashion it’s not always about function, it’s more about the look,” she said. Besides the need for sleek, unobtrusive design that can be worn with a T-shirt as well as with a three-piece suit, wearable technology also faces a material challenge.

WASHINGTON – U.S. consumers cut back on spending in April for the first time in a year, taking an unexpected pause after a big jump during the previous month. The results, however, are unlikely to derail an expected spring rebound in the economy. Consumer spending, which accounts for 70 percent of overall economic activity, fell 0.1 percent in April, the Commerce Department said Friday. The drop was the first in 12 months. But it followed a 1 percent surge in spending in March, which marked the biggest increase in more than four years. “It is obvious that after an unseasonably colder January and February consumers came out with a vengeance in March,” Chris Christopher, an economist at IHS Global Insight, said in a note to clients. “So, April’s poor showing on the spending front is payback for a strong March.” The latest figure reflects reductions in durable goods purchases, such as autos, and in services, such as heating bills. While disappointed, analysts say the results don’t change the broader upward trajectory of the economy and predict consumer demand to bounce back in May. An “improving job market should

Friday’s government report also showed that income rose 0.3 percent in April after advancing 0.5 percent in March. That marks the fourth consecutive monthly climb. The economy has been generating jobs at a solid pace in recent months, including a gain of 288,000 jobs in April, the strongest

uptick in hiring in two years. With spending down and Americans were earning more, the saving rate rose in April to 4 percent of aftertax income, up from a saving rate of 3.6 percent in March. Inflation, as measured by a gauge tied to spending, showed prices rising 1.6 percent from a year ago, up from a 1.1 percent year-over-year price gain in March.

Spending on durable goods falls

smartphone factory in the U.S. Sales of its flagship phone, the Moto X, have been weak and the costs of running the plant too high to keep operations going, Motorola Mobility spokesman Will Moss said. Singapore-based international contract electronics manufacturer Flextronics Ltd. operates the plant. Even though the concept of the smartphone was pioneered in the U.S. and many phones have been designed here, the vast majority of phones are assembled in Asia. The Fort Worth factory has allowed Google to stamp the phone with “Made in the U.S.,” although assembly is just the last step in the manufacturing process, and accounts for relatively little of the cost of a smartphone. The cost largely lies in the chips, battery and display, most of which come from Asian factories. The Fort Worth factory employs about 700 workers who assemble the Moto X smartphones for the U.S. market, Moss said. He declined to comment on whether Motorola would retain the workers. Google bought cellphone pioneer Motorola Mobility for $12.4 billion in 2012. Originally retailing the Moto X for $600, amid flagging sales, Google dropped the price to $399. Still, only a fraction of the units

Consumer sentiment falls on wage outlook

• SPENDING Continued from page E1 However, even with the increase, inflation remains below the Federal Reserve’s 2 percent target. In April, consumers reduced spending on durable goods such as autos by 0.5 percent. The drop followed a big 3.6 percent jump in durable goods spending in March. Consumers boosted spending on nondurable goods a slight 0.1 percent while trimming spending on services by 0.1 percent. Spending on services, which includes utility bills, had been rising rapidly during the winter, reflecting higher heating costs due to the severe cold in many parts of the country. Consumer spending remained strong through the first quarter, rising at an annual rate of 3.1 percent. But much of that strength came from increased health care spending, reflecting new enrollments through the Affordable Care Act. Friday’s data follow news the previous day that the overall economy shrank 1 percent in the January-March quarter. It was the first contraction in three years.

WASHINGTON – U.S. consumer confidence fell in May as Americans grew more pessimistic about future pay increases, though they remained optimistic about the broader economy. The University of Michigan said that its index of consumer sentiment dropped to 81.9 this month from 84.1 in April. Still, Richard Curtin, director of the survey, said that confidence in the first five months of this year has been at the highest level since 2007, before the Great Recession began. Nearly half of all households expect their inflation-adjusted income to decline over the next 12 months, the survey found. And among those that did anticipate gains, most expect increases of just 1 percent or 2 percent. Consumer confidence is closely watched because spending by consumers drives about 70 percent of the economy.

Panel: Baker must make cakes for gay weddings DENVER – Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission on Friday ordered a baker to make wedding cakes for same-sex couples, finding his religious objections to the practice did not trump the state’s antidiscrimination statutes. The unanimous ruling from the seven-member commission upheld an administrative law judge’s finding in December that Jack Phillips violated civil-rights law when he refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple in 2012. The couple sued. “I can believe anything I want, but if I’m going to do business here, I’d ought to not discriminate against people,” Commissioner Raju Jaram said. Phillips, a devout Christian who owns the Masterpiece Cakeshop in the Denver suburb of Lakewood, said the decision violates his First Amendment rights to free speech and free exercise of his religion. “I will stand by my convictions until somebody shuts me down,” he told reporters after the ruling. He added his bakery has been so overwhelmed by supporters eager to buy cookies and brownies that he does not currently make wedding cakes.

The couple who sued Phillips, Dave Mullins and Charlie Craig, were pleased that the commission roundly rejected Phillips’ arguments. “We’re just thrilled by that,” Mullins said. Gay marriage remains illegal in Colorado. Mullins and Craig were married in Massachusetts and wanted a wedding cake for a reception to celebrate their union back home in Colorado. State law prohibits businesses from refusing to serve customers based on their sexual orientation. The panel issued its ruling orally. It ordered Phillips to stop discriminating against gay people and to report quarterly for two years on staff antidiscrimination training and any customers he refuses to serve. Phillips’ attorney said she was considering appealing the ruling to the Colorado Court of Appeals.

U.K. to count drugs, prostitution in GDP LONDON – Britain is putting a price on vice. Prostitution and the import, manufacture and consumption of illegal drugs such as crack cocaine and heroin will be included in the official estimates of the country’s economy, the national statistics agency said Friday. Some of these activities, such as prostitution, are legal in

certain European Union countries, and comparable figures are needed. All member states need the same standard because they are used to assess a member state’s contribution to the EU budget. The new estimates also simply seek to get a more realistic picture of the economy – warts and all. At the moment, the only illegal activities included in Britain’s GDP are estimates on alcohol and tobacco smuggling. “As economies develop and evolve, so do the statistics we use to measure them,” said Joe Grice, the chief economic adviser to the Office of National Statistics. “These improvements are going on across the world and we are working with our partners in Europe and the wider world on the same agenda.” Illegal drugs and prostitution already are measured in Estonia, Austria, Slovenia, Finland, Sweden and Norway, the ONS said in a report. In Britain, they would add about 10 billion pounds ($16.7 billion) to gross domestic product in 2009, the ONS said. That remains a very small portion of the overall GDP, which now stands at 1.5 trillion pounds. Nonetheless, calculations may prove challenging.

Robert J. Sawyer, a Canadian science iction writer, said, “General principles should not be based on exceptional cases.” This week we are studying third hand’s inessing against his partner at trick one. The general principle is that when dummy has one honor, third hand holds a higher honor, and dummy plays low, third hand saves his honor when he can insert a nine or higher. However, bridge still exists because of exceptional cases. Is this deal one of them? South is in three no-trump. West leads his fourth-highest heart. What should East do after declarer calls for dummy’s ive? After South opened one no-trump, responder was right to raise to three no-trump. With a long minor, no singleton or void, enough points to think about game, but insuficient for a slam, go for the nine-trick game. If East blindly follows the inesse-against-partner rule, he will put in his heart 10. However, South will win with his queen and run the diamond jack. East can win with his king, but declarer has 10

tricks: three spades, one heart, ive diamonds and one club. Now let’s go back to trick one. If East tallies the highcard points, he will realize that his partner is destitute. And if he stops to survey his hand and the dummy, he will notice that his club suit is a source of three tricks. East must take the irst trick with his heart ace and shift to the club king. Whatever declarer does, he can no longer make the contract. Whether you are declarer or a defender, take time at trick one to plan your campaign.

TODAY - Pay attention to your inner guide this year. You will be able to manage all of your projects in a confident and noteworthy manner if you follow your heart. Goals that you once believed to be impractical will become reachable. Believe in your abilities and forge ahead. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- An uncertain future will require you to broaden your options regarding your work and personal life. There is no need to remain in a situation that is stifling or unrewarding. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Put some space between you and anything that is creating stress. Indulge in things that make you happy. You will feel recharged and better equipped to deal with problems. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Invite some friends over to your house. Take time to enjoy one another’s company in an open and pleasant setting. Leave work-related matters on the doorstep and keep the conversation light. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A beneficial partnership could come your way as the result of a short trip. Your plans will be met with enthusiasm and some constructive criticism will give you a new outlook. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Expect to face a difference of opinion at home. Emotions will heat up if you are not willing to bend. Don’t say something that you will live to regret. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You can overcome any barriers. Don’t allow insecurity to slow down your progress. You have what it takes to be successful, so pick up the pace. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You may be called on to fulfill a promise that you have yet to honor. Don’t try to back out. You made the commitment, so it’s up to you to see it through. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone is feeling let down. Show more affection, and you will get the same in return. It’s important to see both sides of a situation if you want to resolve issues. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Concentrate on taking better care of your health, and you will replace lethargy and exhaustion with enthusiasm and accomplishment. Overindulgence will cause uncertainty. Balance is required. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- It will be easy to coax others into helping you out. You can increase your chances of success by airing your ideas to a larger group of people. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Stop complaining and start doing. Accept any differences you have with others and keep moving forward. The only person you can improve is you, so leave your grievances at home. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You’ll be stressed over inconsequential matters. If you share your thoughts with a good friend, the suggestions offered will help you find solutions to your problems.
