Jo Ann Collins of Harvard (left) is examined by Dr. Aslam Zahir before her chemotherapy Tuesday in Woodstock. Federal data show that a small portion of U.S. doctors, particularly ophthalmologists and oncologists collect the vast majority of Medicare payments. But a local oncologist says the numbers are misleading.

Giving context to the costs Area health care providers say newly released Medicare payment data doesn’t tell the whole story WOODSTOCK – Dr. Aslam Zahir runs his Woodstock office like a miniature hospital – complete with nurses, support staff and the tools to administer chemotherapy drugs to treat cancer patients. But the public, he said, can’t extrapolate those details from newly released government data the Obama administration has hailed as an unprecedented transparency move to spotlight medical services physicians across the country provide and how much they receive in Medicare to do it. The data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services show that $77 billion in Medicare payments went to more than 880,000 doctors and other medical providers in 2012 for doctor visits, treatments and tests typically done outside a hospital. Of that total, physicians in McHenry County received more than $45.7 million in Medicare payments. Like other area medical professionals, Zahir said the massive data release is a “disservice to the public” since it lacks context and potentially could confuse the public on the issue of health care costs. “There is a discord between what is going on with Medicare payments and what is happening with me,” Zahir said. “Medicare is paying, but the Medicare is paying for drug costs, and the drug costs are rising higher.” Zahir received $1.68 million in Medicare payments in 2012. Others at his Fox Valley Hematology and Oncology clinic

received payments of $1.76 million and $1.55 million. His office, with locations in Woodstock, McHenry, Huntley, Elgin and Hoffman Estates, ranked near the top in McHenry County with the most Medicare payments. The average Medicare payment for physicians specializing in hematology and oncology was $463,844. Most of the annual Medicare payments covers drug costs to treat cancer patients directly inside Zahir’s offices. The numbers released by the federal government, he said, make it seem like he is directly profiting off Medicare. Medicare fraud is one reason why Dow Jones and Co., which owns the Wall Street Journal, sought to overturn an injunction the American Medical Association won in 1979 to prevent the release of doctor-specific Medicare information. A federal judge in Florida vacated the injunction in 2011, and the victory came with the recent government release of doctor billing data. But physicians like Zahir contend the data has limitations and puts honest physicians in an unfair light. The data only includes information on Medicare Part B, the fee-for-service reimbursement available to doctors who work outside of hospitals. Certain specialties, such as oncology, rank high because of high drug costs, while some practices bill Medicare charges for multiple physicians under one supervisor. “I support the fact that providing data is good,” Zahir said. “But providing data

Quinn’s troubled program faces more scrutiny By KERRY LESTER and CHACOUR KOOP SPRINGFIELD – Gov. Pat Quinn’s troubled anti-violence program faces another layer of scrutiny after a legislative panel approved subpoena powers for itself Tuesday to dig into how the program’s money was spent before and after Quinn’s election campaign in 2010. The bipartisan committee acted as more details emerged about Quinn’s Neighborhood Recovery Initiative, with a prominent Democrat, Cook County Circuit Clerk Dorothy Brown, acknowledging that she worked for a nonprofit founded by her husband that

received money through it. The Legislative Audit Commission, which helps review the use of public funds, voted 10-1 in favor of the rarely used maneuver to look into the 2010 program, which critics have likened to a “political slush fund.” Already it is the subject of a scathing state auditor’s report for mismanagement and spending as well as federal and Cook County probes. “We’ve got to get to the bottom of this,” said state Sen. Jason Barickman, a Bloomington Republican on the committee. Barickman did not detail how he wanted the panel to proceed on the matter, but spoke of gathering a list of witnesses who could testify about it. The committee’s vote followed Brown’s acknowledgment that she had worked

WOODSTOCK – McHenry County Board members critical of a money-losing contract to house federal inmates at the county jail took advantage of a $10 increase in the per diem rate to ask tough questions and air their concerns. County Board members voted Tuesday, 17-5 with two absent, to accept an intergovernmental agreement increasing the rate it gets from the U.S. Marshals Service and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Under the new agreement, the rate will increase from $85 to $95 an inmate per day, and the hourly rate for transporting inmates will increase from $34 to $46.48. The new agreement replaces

A little angst with Stanley Cup excitement Ah, playoff time in the National Hockey League. As usual, the Chicago Blackhawks are in the thick of it. Will they repeat as Stanley Cup champions? The next few weeks will tell the tale. Of course, the business at hand is to get past the Minnesota Wild to make it to the Western Conference final. In the rearview mirror are the St. Louis Blues, who were seeded higher than the Blackhawks and acquired goalie Ryan Miller for a chance to win it all. I’ll admit I was a little concerned when the Blues won the first two games, albeit by close margins. Blame my angst on not having home-ice advantage. Thankfully, that hasn’t happened too often for the Blackhawks in recent years. Yet when the dust cleared, the Hawks rolled off four straight wins

VIEWS Joan Oliver to claim the series and move onto the next round. So right now is the best of times and the worst of times for me as a Blackhawks fan. The playoffs bring some of the best hockey. Watch any playoff game and you’re likely to see some of the fastest skating, the biggest hits and the most pulse-pounding action of the season. More games go to overtime, since defenses tighten up and the best goalies go head to head. Or toe save to toe save. You’re more likely to see jaw-dropping goals ala winger Patrick Kane’s backhanded top-shelf number in Game 1 against the Wild.

When the stakes get higher, some players find another gear. Winger Bryan Bickell comes to mind. Here’s a guy who scored 11 goals in 59 games all season. He gets to the playoffs, and he’s already scored five goals in eight games. Maybe that’s why the Blackhawks signed him to a four-year, $16 million contract after last season. This also is the time for the team’s warriors to shine. Who didn’t wince when they saw defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson take a puck off the neck in Game 2? Thing is, he never missed a shift. No wonder the commentary guys call that “sacrificing the body.” Ouch. When it’s all done, we’ll hear about the horrific injuries some of the players are dealing with. Who can forget that winger Marian Hossa was playing with a foot he couldn’t even feel because of a back injury

during the Cup run last year? In the end, hoisting Lord Stanley’s trophy was more than worth the cost. Of course, I’m not sure my heart can take another series like the one the Blackhawks had against the Detroit Red Wings last season. The Hawks were down 3-1 in that series and had to claw their way to Game 7. And then they had to win that in overtime. Despite loving that the Blackhawks are in the playoffs, I’m just a little stressed out right now. So if you need me, I’ll be the one screaming at the TV and grabbing for the antacids. Go Blackhawks!

Vatican report reveals penalties for priests

The Associated Press

Northwest Herald Web Poll Question

GENEVA – The Vatican revealed Tuesday that over the past decade, it has defrocked 848 priests who raped or molested children and sanctioned another 2,572 with lesser penalties, providing the first ever breakdown of how it handled the more than 3,400 cases of abuse reported to the Holy See since 2004. The Vatican’s U.N. ambas-

sador in Geneva, Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, released the figures during a second day of grilling by a U.N. committee monitoring implementation of the U.N. treaty against torture. Tomasi insisted that the Holy See was only obliged to abide by the torture treaty inside the tiny Vatican City State, which has a population of only a few hundred people. But significantly, he didn’t dispute the committee’s contention that sexual violence against children can be considered torture. Legal experts have said that classifying sexual abuse as torture could expose the Catholic Church to a new wave of lawsuits since torture cases in much of the world don’t carry statutes of

roughly parallels the years in which abuse scandals were in the news. And they showed that far from diminishing in recent years, the number of cases reported annually to the Vatican has remained a fairly constant 400 or so since 2010, the last year the scandal erupted in public around the globe. These cases, however, concern mostly abuse that occurred decades ago. The Associated Press reported in January that thenPope Benedict XVI had defrocked 384 priests in the final two years of his pontificate, citing documentation that Tomasi’s delegation had prepared for another U.N. hearing monitoring a treaty on the rights of children.

limitations. Tomasi also provided statistics about how the Holy See has adjudicated sex abuse cases for the past decade. The Vatican in 2001 required bishops and religious superiors to forward all credible cases of abuse to Rome for review after determining that they were shuffling pedophile priests from diocese to diocese rather than subjecting them to church trials. Only in 2010 did the Vatican explicitly tell bishops and superiors to also report credible cases to police where local reporting laws require them to. The Vatican statistics are notable in that they show how the peaks in numbers over the years – both of cases reported and sanctions meted out –

Senator amends Tax collections higher than projected Officials expect about $1.2 billion in additional revenue from ’13 taxes proposal for education funds The ASSOCIATED PRESS

The ASSOCIATED PRESS SPRINGFIELD – An Illinois state senator has revised an education funding reform proposal in the hopes of gaining more bipartisan support. Bunker Hill Democrat Andy Manar’s legislation has been amended to cap the amount of state funds given to the poorest schools to ensure money can be spread around evenly to districts with average amounts of poverty. The measure is aimed at streamlining the state’s school funding formula by requiring districts to demonstrate need before receiving money. Manar says he incorporated the thoughts of Republicans into the legislation, which he filed late Monday night. The current school funding method has been in effect since 1997. It factors in a district’s poverty for some types of state aid but not others, leading critics to charge that the poorest districts are often left hurting the most during the toughest budget years. Under the plan, 92 percent of total state education funding would be distributed by factoring in districts’ poverty levels, accounting for low-income students using a weighted formu-

la. The legislation also uses the number of students receiving free and reduced-price lunches to determine who qualifies for additional low income dollars, which Manar says is in practice with most other states. Only specialized programs for special education and early childhood education would be exempted from the formula. And, for the first time in decades, fundSen. Andy ing for Chicago Public Schools Manar D-Bunker Hill would be treated under the same formula as the rest of the state. Despite the amendment, Republican critics say they’re still not sold on the proposal until they receive more details on how schools across the state would be impacted. Republican state Sen. Dave Luechtefeld called the legislation “an attempt to address some of the issues” GOP lawmakers raised in a recent three-hour committee meeting on the subject. Still, he said, “until we see the numbers, it’s hard to give (support),” Luechtefeld, of Okawville, said.

SPRINGFIELD – State officials say Illinois is on pace to end its fiscal year with about $1.2 billion in additional revenue. The Springfield State Journal-Register reported

most of the money is a onetime occurrence thanks to better-than-expected personal income tax collections and sales taxes. Lawmakers constructed the budget based on a revenue estimate of $35.4 billion. The figures were released

by the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability, the General Assembly’s fiscal forecasting arm. Jim Muschinske is the commission’s revenue manager. He says the solid performance of the stock market in

2013 helped boost the tax revenue, but warned that can’t necessarily be expected to continue next year. The state expects a significant revenue decrease next year because of an expected decrease in the income tax rate.

U.S. seeks test of suspect in school threat By JIM SUHR The Associated Press EAST ST. LOUIS – Federal prosecutors are seeking competency testing of a western Illinois high school special education teacher accused of threatening to blow up her school, citing the woman’s history of threatening behavior. U.S. Magistrate Judge Donald Wilkerson is weighing the U.S. government’s request argued in court Monday in the case of Michelle Smith. Prosecutors also want Smith jailed without bond pending any trial on a felony count of conveying a false threat. Wilkerson’s rulings on those matters were expected within days. Until that time, the Jerseyville woman – also charged by Calhoun County prosecutors with falsely making a terrorist threat – has been ordered to stay in

federal custody. “We’re not suggesting at all that she’s not competent, but the woman may have some issues that may impact on the prosecution. We don’t know,” Phillip Kavanaugh, Smith’s court-appointed public deMichelle fender, told Smith, The Associteacher ated Press on accused of Tuesday. threatening Smith, 36, to blow up was accused her school last week in Calhoun County and federal court with leaving a computer-generated note April 28 in a restroom at the Calhoun County High School in Hardin, a 1,000-resident town near the Mississippi River about 40 miles northwest of St. Louis.

“This school is going down today. KABOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” the note said, according to federal court filings. “I’m tired of all the people here. Everyone is going down ... So long and GOOD-BYE!!!!!!!!!” The letter’s discovery prompted an evacuation of the roughly 170-student school, but a search that included explosives-detecting dogs found no bomb. Smith was arrested the next day. “People often say things in the heat of the moment or under stress, but they really don’t mean it,” said Kavanaugh. “In this case, she had no manner or means to carry out these threats. She had no access to explosives, no bombs or a Molotov cocktail – or no wherewithal to carry out these threats.” Authorities have not said what may have prompted the alleged threat or how they connected it to Smith,

though federal prosecutors allege in their motion for the psychiatric testing for Smith that she had threatened violence in 2005 and 2006. Online court records show Smith was charged with two misdemeanor counts of telephone harassment in 2008 in Jersey County, but prosecutors later dropped those cases. “But there’s something going on, and we have to get to the bottom of it,” Kavanaugh added. Smith initially was placed on paid administrative leave after her arrest but was suspended last Friday without pay, Superintendent Kate Sievers said Tuesday. On Monday night, Sievers said, the system’s board passed a motion to begin the process of firing her, with the matter headed for a state hearing officer if Smith chooses to challenge her ouster.

Vernon Hills installs turtle crossing signs The ASSOCIATED PRESS VERNON HILLS – Vernon Hills wants fast drivers to hit the brakes to make way for turtles. The village, about 30 miles north of Chicago, is on a reptile-saving mission with its new turtle crossing signs after dozens of the animals died

while inching across roads last year. “We did have a significant amount of carnage last year,” said David Brown, public works director and village engineer. The temporary signs are being installed in subdivisions near a channel that’s popular with the slow-moving

creatures, particularly painted turtles and snapping turtles, The Arlington Heights Daily Herald reported. Gary Glowacki, a wildlife biologist with the Lake County Forest Preserve District, said reptile awareness is increasing among residents who are asking for more signs near their homes after the

first were put up several years ago. Glowacki said he is fielding additional requests from residents who are trying to keep the crawling critters safe, especially during nesting season. “Pretty much the month of June is the most dangerous time to be a turtle,” he said.

Democrats consider getting involved in Benghazi inquiry Republicans want committee majority for investigation By BRADLEY KLAPPER and DONNA CASSATA The Associated Press WASHINGTON – House Democrats opened the door Tuesday to participating in a special panel’s investigation of the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, even if they see it as little more than an election-year ploy by Republicans to discredit the Obama administration and motivate GOP voters. Laying out her party’s conditions, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Republicans must conduct interviews and share information as part of their new inquest into the Obama administration’s response to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. diplomatic post that killed four Americans. She called for the same number of Democrats as Republicans on the panel, a demand the GOP majority immediately rejected. “If this review is to be fair, it must be truly bipartisan,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a statement. Later, she told reporters that rank-and-file Democrats are “suspicious of whatever

Great Plains getting hotter, drier Report shows climate change as culprit of severe weather shift the rain that does fall will often come during storms that will increase flooding, degrade stream quality and erode topsoil. Dwindling municipal supplies will cause problems in fast-growing cities, primarily in Texas.

By JOHN FLESHER The Associated Press TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. – Climate change will bring more drought, fierce storms and searing heat to the Great Plains, causing hardships that will test the region’s legendary capacity to cope with severe weather, says a report by the National Climate Assessment. Despite its sharply contrasting landscapes, the eight-state region extending from Texas to Montana by way of Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, the Dakotas and Wyoming will share one transcendent challenge: water.

the Republicans are trying to do.” With midterm elections looming closer, Republicans are sharpening their focus on the Benghazi attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. A vote to authorize the probe is expected this week. A senior GOP congressman has issued a subpoena to Secretary of State John Kerry to testify before a separate committee. And the subject could surface in multiple other congressional hearings this week. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has yet to outline his full plan for the select panel, whose establishment is all but a formality in the GOP-controlled House. But the Republican chosen by Boehner to head the investigation said Democrats wouldn’t get the same number of seats – and votes – on the committee. “Look, we’re in the majority for a reason. We have more seats in the House,” said Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, a second-term congressman from South Carolina and former prosecutor.

In the northern Plains, expected increases in winter snowfall and spring rain may help crops during the early growing season, although some fields may be too wet to plant. Longer growing seasons may allow cultivation of second annual crops. But pest insects that previously died off in winter will increasingly survive, and winter crops that leave dormancy too soon will be vulnerable to spring freezes. Farming will be hit hard in the central and southern Plains, as rainfall declines and higher temperatures increase evaporation. Demand for irrigation will rise, and the Ogallala and High Plains aquifers will be further depleted.

8NATION BRIEFS Tea party faces off with GOP establishment WASHINGTON – North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis captured the Republican nomination to oppose imperiled Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan Tuesday night, overcoming anti-establishment rivals by a comfortable margin in the first of a springtime spate of primaries testing the strength of a tea party movement that first rocked the GOP four years ago. In Ohio, Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald won the Democratic nomination to challenge Gov. John Kasich in the fall. U.S. House Speaker John Boehner, a Republican, rolled to re-nomination for another term in Congress, his 13th. On a night that was kind to Republican incumbents in three states, GOP Rep. Susan Brooks of Indiana easily fended off a challenge from the right, rolling up 75 percent of the votes in a three-way race.

Hillary Clinton: Nation’s gun culture out of balance WASHINGTON – Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday the nation’s gun culture has gotten “way out of balance” and the U.S. needs to rein in the notion that “anybody can have a gun, anywhere, anytime.” The former secretary of state and potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate said the idea that anyone can have a gun is not in the “best interest of the vast majority of people.” But she said that approach does not

EPA accused of blocking inspector’s investigations WASHINGTON – A unit run by President Barack Obama’s political staff inside the Environmental Protection Agency operates illegally as a “rogue law enforcement agency” that has blocked independent investigations by the EPA’s inspector general for years, a top investigator told Congress. The assistant EPA inspector general for investigations, Patrick Sullivan, was expected to testify Wednesday before a House oversight committee about the activities of the EPA’s little-known Office of Homeland Security.

Circus acrobat wants to return to ring after fall PROVIDENCE, R.I. – One of eight circus acrobats who plummeted about 20 feet to the ground during a hair-hanging stunt says she’s thankful she’s alive and wants to return to the ring. Samantha Pitard and seven other acrobats were in an act described as a “human chandelier,” hanging from an apparatus by their hair. They were injured during a Sunday performance of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus when a clip at the top of the chandelier-like apparatus snapped, dropping them to the ground 20 or more feet below.

Pro-Russia militia under pressure from Ukraine troops Government begins removing forces from city By PETER LEONARD and YURAS KARMANAU The Associated Press DONETSK, Ukraine – A pro-Russia militia holding an eastern Ukrainian city came under further pressure Tuesday from advancing government troops, but militants acted with impunity elsewhere in the turbulent region. The foreign ministers of Ukraine and Russia met Tuesday, but their open disagreements did nothing to suggest a diplomatic solution was near. Diplomacy was to be taken up again on Wednesday during a meeting in Moscow between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Swiss President Didier Burkhal-

ter, whose country currently chairs the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. Russia and the West have expressed a desire for the OSCE to play a greater role in defusing the tensions in Ukraine. Ukrainian military operations that began Monday to expunge pro-Russia forces from the city of Slovyansk were the interim government’s most ambitious effort so far to quell weeks of unrest in Ukraine’s mainly Russian-speaking east. Four government troops and 30 militants were killed in the gunbattles, Ukraine’s interior minister said Tuesday. The pro-Russia militia said 10 people were killed, including civilians. There was no immediate way to reconcile the figures. In the southwest, Kiev authorities also attempted to reassert control over the region around Odessa, a major Black Sea port, by appointing a new

This nation of 46 million was thrown into a political crisis after its Moscow-leaning president, whose base was in eastern Ukraine, fled to Russia in February following months of protests in Kiev. Across the region in recent weeks, armed insurgents who

8WORLD BRIEFS El-Sissi pushes Egyptians to line up behind him CAIRO – In his campaign for president, Egypt’s former army chief is casting himself as a strong-handed disciplinarian able to solve the nation’s mounting problems and turmoil with good planning and efficiency, swinging between big-hearted shows of sympathy for Egyptians’ woes and a military man’s impatience with dissent and chaos. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi’s appearances so far have been tightly controlled, including meetings with selected groups and a prerecorded two-part interview with pro-military TV channels aired Monday and Tuesday. That is likely to be his method throughout his campaign for the May 26-27 vote, with few if any street appearances, a style that has raised criticism from supporters and opponents alike.

decades ago. But the anti-establishment sentiment of many young South Africans, grouped under the post-apartheid label of “born frees,” is unlikely to cut deeply into ruling party support at the polls because a large number have not registered to vote.

Reclusive German art collector Gurlitt dies at 81 BERLIN – Cornelius Gurlitt’s long-secret hoard of 1,280 major artworks set off an international uproar last year over the fate of art looted by the Nazis. Now his death has triggered a new round of speculation over who will eventually own his unparalleled collection. A spokesman for the reclusive German collector, who died Tuesday at age 81 at his apartment in Munich, said Gurlitt had living relatives but he would not say who they are.

JOHANNESBURG – Phakisho Mojaplo, 20, belongs to a new generation of South Africans who never experienced firsthand the harsh system of white minority rule that ended in 1994, and will vote in national elections for the first time on Wednesday. She is deeply dissatisfied with what she describes as a growing culture of elitism and corruption in her country despite its new freedoms and other advances during her lifetime. Chief among Mojaplo’s grievances is her sense that the ruling African National Congress, which is expected to win re-election with a possibly reduced majority, has betrayed the commitments to clean governance and basic services for all citizens that it championed when it took power in South Africa’s first all-race elections two

BANGKOK – Thailand’s prime minister faces a legal showdown Wednesday, as the country’s highest court rules on a case that could toss her out of office and plunge the country deeper into political turmoil. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra stands accused in Constitutional Court of abusing her authority by transferring a senior civil servant in 2011 to another position, allegedly for the benefit of herself or her Pheu Thai Party. The court could also rule her Cabinet liable as well, and in a worst-case scenario force them all out of office, leaving a power vacuum the government’s opponents hope to fill with their own loyalists. “I would like to deny all allegations I am accused of,” Yingluck testified Tuesday.

base was an uptick in their offensive. In Odessa, Kiev authorities announced Tuesday they were firing the acting governor and replacing him with a member of parliament, Ihor Palytsya. Odessa’s police chief was also fired over the weekend. Concern that Odessa could be the next region to fall grew after 46 people died Friday, many in a building fire, after a pro-Ukraine march in Odessa turned into a melee of fighting. Two days later, 67 people detained in the rioting were released by police under pressure from an angry crowd. Opposing sides of the Ukraine conflict have traded bitter recriminations over the Odessa deaths. As residents gathered on Tuesday to lay flowers near the scorched building, they remained confused about exactly what caused the fire and were suspicious of the police forces who did not try to stop the bloodshed, for whatever reason.

By Tuesday morning, Ukrainian forces had taken hold of a key checkpoint north of the city, dealing a blow to insurgent lines of communication. In Donetsk, a major city 75 miles south of Slovyansk, the airport was closed during the day to international flights following a government order but reopened later.

Increase applies to U.S. Marshals and ICE • JAIL Continued from page A1 The reimbursement increase applies to both the Marshals and ICE, but the county is trying to get more money from ICE because its inmate population is larger and costs more money, County Administrator Peter Austin said. The original agreement allocates 50 spaces in the jail for Marshals prisoners and 206 for those held by ICE. The contract the county has with the federal government to house detainees expires in October 2015. It dates back to 2003, when the County Board accepted $6.4 million to help pay for expanding the jail, provided the county accepts an agreement in which the Marshals and the newly created ICE could house up to 256 federal detainees a day for 10 years from the expansion’s completion. The contract stipulates the government can hold people awaiting trial on federal charges, people sentenced and waiting to go to federal prison, and people waiting for an immigration hearing or deportation.

Gov. Pat Quinn speak to reporters Tuesday after a legislative commission that helps review the use of public money voted to grant itself subpoena powers to investigate Quinn’s troubled anti-violence program at the state Capitol in Springfield.

Quinn claims he ID’d problems before report • QUINN Continued from page A1 as an unpaid accountant for her husband’s Dream Catchers Community Development Corp. Benton Cook’s program contracted with Chicago Area Project, which oversaw organizations receiving money through the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative. The Chicago Sun-Times first reported the connection. The newspaper also has reported that Cook had a prior financial crime conviction, which prompted Quinn’s administration to launch an internal review last week. Dream Catchers was awarded thousands of dollars, but its contract closed in 2011 after the Chicago Area Project learned of a potential conflict of interest with Cook also being paid by it to oversee other programs. The anti-violence program has dogged Quinn during his re-election campaign against Republican businessman Bruce Rauner, who has used it to try to discredit Quinn’s reputation for maintaining a relatively scandal-free administration after two predecessors were imprisoned.

Quinn has defended his actions in connection with the program, saying he identified problems before the auditor’s report earlier this year and disbanded the agency that ran it. He has said he was surprised by Brown’s involvement and did not know of Cook’s criminal record ahead of news reports last week. “We have to look into it, all of us do, to make sure that nothing wrong was going on,” Quinn said after an unrelated event in Springfield. However, he called the committee’s move Tuesday “politics as usual” just months ahead of the November election. Critics, including Barickman, have accused Quinn of using the money for the program to shore up support ahead of the 2010 election. Quinn’s office has said no money was spent before he won office. The audit commission’s move was rare. It has only once given itself permission to issue subpoenas in the last 30 years. Four Democrats voted for the measure, while stressing that the new power should also be used to scrutinize other agencies.

The county jail can house up to 650 inmates. Several County Board members voted in favor of the increase in order to capture the extra money, but they made their displeasure known about operating at a loss and not knowing the true costs. “It’s been a high level of frustration for me because I’ve never been able to get the information,” said member Paula Yensen, D-Lake in the Hills. Costs of the federal inmate housing contract came up during the contentious Republican primary race for county sheriff. Candidate Bill Prim, who won the March primary, said the contract loses money and that he will take a more active role in the negotiations if the County Board considers renewing it. Undersheriff Andrew Zinke, who lost the primary, said he would support renewing it only if the County Board deems it to be cost-effective. The county entered into a $60,000 agreement with Summerill Group, a Washington, D.C.-based firm, to get more money from housing federal inmates. The $131 per-inmate estimate came from

a 2013 proposal Summerill submitted as part of its bid to negotiate the county’s contract. The number of federal inmates being held in the jail has been steadily decreasing. The jail housed 161 federal prisoners last month, down about one third from the 242 it housed a year prior, and down half from the 331 it held in December 2011, according to records. County staff estimates the county would have received an additional $892,360 in revenue last year, and another $1.06 million in 2012, had the rate increases approved Tuesday been in place. Among the “no” votes was that of board member Joe Gottemoller, which surprised his fellow board members because he spoke out in favor of taking the increased revenue. He said he would have voted yes had he been the deciding vote, but wanted to send a message about the overall contract. “I also wanted everyone to be aware of the fact we are not going to do this after October 2015, unless someone can show me better data,” Gottemoller said after the vote.

Bears’ Long stands above “Stackin tickets with my man Andrew.” That’s how Kyle Long’s tweet read Saturday. It was accompanied by a photo of Long and Huntley 9-year-old Andrew Oyston playing games at Chuck E. Cheese in Crystal Lake. Long, an offensive lineman, was the Chicago Bears’ first-round draft choice in 2013. Oyston, a fourth-grader at Leggee Elementary, has been the victim of bullying for the past For the record three years. The two make an unMany kids look at profeslikely duo, given sional athletes – rightly or Long’s fame as a wrongly – as role models. Few NFL player and athletes rise to the level of Oyston’s obscurity as a suburban such consideration. 9-year-old. On Saturday, however, the two hung out all day. Andrew’s father, Frank, had sent a tweet to Long since the bullying of Andrew persisted, asking if there was anything he could do to cheer up Andrew – a pep talk, perhaps. Long tweeted back that he’d ride the bus with him to school. The bus ride turned into a visit to Andrew’s house. The visit to Andrew’s house turned into Long showing up at Andrew’s sister’s birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. He spent four hours playing games and talking with Andrew. Long then returned to Oyston’s home, where he tossed around a football, signed autographs and posed for photos. Many kids look at professional athletes – rightly or wrongly – as role models. Few athletes rise to the level of such consideration. It appears Long, who is the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Howie Long, rises to such a level. Here is a professional athlete who took the time – unpaid – to drive out to McHenry County to cheer up a kid who has been bullied over his weight. He did so without seeking publicity. There are other examples of professional athletes doing similar things. Long is the latest example of an athlete who uses his fame to help others. The events of Saturday will never be forgotten by the Oyston family – or by Long. “I didn’t think any of this would happen,” Frank Oyston said. “But (Saturday) was amazing. My son just thought it was the greatest thing ever. He was totally shocked.” All made possible by a stand-up person, who also happens to be a professional athlete using his fame in positive ways.

Rice should have spoken In the face of growing protests on the Rutgers University campus, Condoleezza Rice backed out of a scheduled commencement address this month at the New Jersey school. That’s a shame on many fronts. Rice is an expert on Russian history. We could learn much from her views on the current Russian aggression in the Ukraine, the ultimate aims of Vladimir Putin and the best way for the West to contain this emerging threat. During much of the 1990s, Rice was provost at Stanford University, overseeing a $1.5 billion annual budget. Her views on higher education and its challenges would be highly relevant, especially for new graduates, many of whom are leaving campus with massive student loan debt. As the daughter of a prominent AfricanAmerican educator who spent part of her childhood in the segregated Alabama of the 1950s and 1960s, Rice could add nuance and depth to our understanding of the nation’s current state of race relations. Yet, none of these items were on the radar at Rutgers. Complaints from students and faculty centered on another part of her résumé – her time as national security adviser to President George W. Bush and then as his secretary of the State Department. Specifically, protesters objected to Rice’s role in the Bush administration’s war in Iraq and the deceptions employed to bring the nation to war. Over the weekend, Rice announced she was backing out of the speaking engagement, which would have paid her $35,000. “Commencement should be a time of joyous celebration for the graduates and their families,” according to her statement. “Rutgers’ invitation to me to speak has become a distraction for the university community at this very special time.” It’s difficult to object to that gracious response. However, we’re left with some regret of what Rice could have said. Some of it might not be pleasant for her to share, but as an academic she surely knows the way to progress is through honest self-reflection. Rice does indeed have much to say about Iraq and how she was a key player in taking the nation to war. She has lessons to offer Rutgers (and the rest of us) on the true costs of pre-emptive invasion, of thoughtlessly wielding U.S. power and of the bitter fruit when deceptive marketing of war and the failure to plan sufThe Anniston (Ala.)

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Reduce size of government To the Editor I believe we are eventually heading for Armageddon if federal and state governments do not scale back in relation to the size of the population, especially in Illinois. Democrats and Republicans must agree on reducing the size of these governments, and I mean in all areas, unless either party has something to hide. What’s happening now is that when either party is voted in, they bring their friends, relatives, backers, etc., into the government. This guarantees the politician votes to stay in office and receive all of the juicy benefits. We finally could end up with people not qualified to run a government, and the taxpayers foot the bill. My suggestion is to limit all of the various governments to a percentage of the total population. I don’t know what the percentage is now, but as an example, the following suggestions may be considered: In the first year, with 350,000,000 population, 20

percent are in government, or 70,000,000 persons. In the second year, all sections of government must reduce personnel by 1 percent or 2 percent. In the third year, the same as above – 1 percent or 2 percent – until the perfect quantity is accomplished. The reductions can be through retirement, deaths, last in first out, incompetence, jailed politicians, etc. Just a suggestion. Bill Chausis Huntley

Repeal ‘Cadillac’ tax To the Editor: The Affordable Care Act contains far too many provisions stuffed within it – good, bad and ugly. One provision is so ugly that it is even opposed by a segment that would normally be part of the president’s supportive constituency – the labor unions. I’m referring to the so-called “Cadillac” excise tax, which supposedly seeks to discourage wasteful health care usage by

taxing insurance plans deemed overly generous. Because this part of ACA doesn’t kick in until 2018, there’s time for a bipartisan push to jettison that ugly tax before it becomes entrenched. The premise of the tax is that richer insurance plans drive overutilization. That’s a fictional construct in the minds of ivory tower health economists not in touch with the real world. Health care utilization is actually driven by a person’s health status and by that patient’s physicians’ orders – neither of them related to available insurance benefits. ACA itself has caused all compliant insurance plans to become

richer because of the 2010 removal of most dollar maximums and the 2014 minimally mandated “essential” health benefits – which go beyond what typical group or individual plans cover. Consider, too, that the law allows for the maximum plan benefits exempt from the tax to increase annually but based on the general rate of inflation. This is dumb, if not cruel, as health care costs increase much more then general inflation. Before long, almost all health plans will become subject to this heinous tax. Repeal this tax before it starts. Stan Perrin Crystal Lake

Government waste: Where’s all the money gone? Most people, perhaps even the super-wealthy, who are usually accountable to auditors, want to know where their money goes. This is especially true when they detect money for which they can’t account. Not so with the federal government. Some recent headlines reflect a disturbing pattern that has contributed to our $17 trillion debt and to a growing cynicism among the public, which increasingly regards government in a negative light. Here are just a few recent gems gleaned from reading newspaper stories and wire service reports: “Pentagon to destroy $1 billion in ammunition.” This USA Today story said, “It is impossible to know what portion of the arsenal slated for destruction ... remains viable because the Defense Department’s inventory systems can’t share data effectively, according to a Government Accountability Office report.” So in addition to nonfeasance add incompetence. The New York Times reported on a modest medical office in Brooklyn that received $4.1 million in Medicare funds for “therapy.” The Times said

VIEWS Cal Thomas the money went to one person. Maybe the government needs therapy. Taxpayers certainly do. A personal favorite, again from USA Today: “IRS workers who didn’t pay taxes get bonuses.” Then there’s this from the Washington Post: “Navy to award contract for Marine One helicopter fleet in shadow of previous failure.” Why let failure get in the way of a government program? “$6 billion goes missing at State Department,” reported the Fiscal Times. I’m constantly misplacing billions, aren’t you? Again the Fiscal Times: “Government blatantly wastes $30 billion this year.” The key word is “blatantly.” Just in time for this year’s university commencement exercises we learn, courtesy of The Wall Street Journal: “Government programs to reduce (student loan) defaults are encouraging more debt.” Citizens Against Government

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

Waste (CAGW) this week releases its 2014 “Pig Book” listing some of the outrageous spending by the federal government. The book focuses mostly on “pork,” those earmarks added to a bill after the normal budget process. Earmarks have been outlawed since fiscal 2011, but members of Congress always seem to find ways around the many laws they pass. This year’s Pig Book has found earmarks attached to the 12 appropriations bills that fund the federal government. One paragraph from the introduction reveals the lengths to which some members of Congress will go to circumvent the law in pursuit of their own political interests: “The 2012 Pig Book noted that although there were fewer earmarks than in prior years, the projects involved larger amounts of money and included fewer details. This is also true in 2014. For instance, a $25 million earmark for the National Predisaster Mitigation Fund appearing in the FY 2014 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Appropriations Act corresponds to 58 earmarks totaling $24.6 million for the same program in the FY 2010 DHS bill. The 2010

earmarks appeared in the ‘Congressionally Directed Spending’ section at the end of the bill, which contained the names of the members of Congress requesting each project and its location, as required by the pertinent transparency rules. This is in stark contrast to the FY 2014 earmark, which contains no such information.” When committing a crime, some criminals try not to leave fingerprints at the scene. Congress engages in criminality on a higher plain by not leaving “fingerprints” on their earmarks. Who will hold them accountable? Apparently not enough voters, too many of whom appear indifferent, or deliberately ignorant of it all. To paraphrase the old Peter, Paul and Mary song: Where has all the money gone? Long time passing. Gone to earmarks and down a sinkhole. When will we ever learn? • Cal Thomas’ latest book is “What Works: Common Sense Solutions for a Stronger America” is available in bookstores now.

School officials convene D-155, feeder districts discuss ways to build on partnerships By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – For the first time ever, leadership from Community High School District 155 and the four elementary school districts that feed into it held a joint meeting Tuesday to discuss more partnership opportunities. Board members from District 155, District 47, District 46, District 26 and District 3 came together for a special meeting at Crystal Lake Central High School where administrators from all districts presented information on curriculum, special education, finances and

other subjects to give the board members an idea of the current situation in order to develop future improvements. Ted Wagner, board president for District 155, said the idea came during a meeting a couple of years ago between all the district board presidents. The superintendents agreed to help coordinate their staffs to come up with presentations on how the districts have worked together. “We are making history tonight,” Wagner said, noting the leadership assembled was responsible for roughly 20,000 students and $250 million in budgets. “We all work together

and this will get us all thinking on how we can work together and enjoy more of a shared service model between us all.” Scott Kubelka, director of curriculum and assessment for District 155, started the presentation by talking about the partnership the districts have in transitioning to Common Core with a heavy emphasis on the transition from eighth grade to freshman year. He said instead of sending teachers throughout the region to different workshops and conferences, the districts came together to bring in a leading expert on Common Core and eighth-grade and fresh-

man-year teachers from all district schools came together in a local location to learn how to best work together. Administrators Kim Dahlem of District 155 and Jennifer Thomas of District 26 discussed special education partnerships that have been going on for more than a decade. As special needs cases in autism and other areas continue to rise, the partnership between all districts has naturally become strengthened. Thomas provided an example of how the districts will hire a specialist such as a speech

SEMITRAILER CRASH CLOSES ROUTE 30 WATERMAN – Route 30 near Waterman was closed for more than two hours Tuesday after a semitrailer overturned and spilled trash near the roadway. The semitrailer was headed west on Route 30 just east of Route 23 near Waterman around 5 a.m. when the driver lost control of the vehicle and veered into the eastbound lane before striking an embankment in the south side ditch, said Gary Dumdie, chief deputy at the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office. The semitrailer rolled on its side, spilling trash into the ditch. The road was closed for more than two hours as crews worked to clean up the mess. Cleanup continued even as the road was reopened. The driver, a Lake in the Hills man, claimed he lost control of the steering, Dumdie said. A truck inspector from the Illinois State Police was inspecting the truck to see if there were any defects. The man suffered minor injuries and was taken to Kishwaukee Hospital by the Waterman Fire Department. The incident is being investigated by the state police and sheriff’s office.

Districts looking for new Girls on the Run 5K will be held on May 18 transportation models WOODSTOCK: CELEBRATING SEVEN YEARS

WOODSTOCK – Girls on the Run of Northwest Illinois, celebrating its seventh year serving girls in McHenry, DeKalb, Boone and Winnebago counties, will be hosting its seventh annual Girls on the Run 5K on May 18 at Woodstock North High School. The race begins at 8:30 a.m. and is open to the community. “This race is unlike any other in our community,” program director Lisa Puma said. “Over 1,800 girls, running buddies and community runners

are expected for this event. Our 5K is truly a celebration of each and every girl who participates in our program and it is the final ‘lesson’ for the girls and a way to let them shine.” The event is noncompetitive, though there will be a clock at the finish line for those interested in their time. “Every runner receives a race bib with the number one,” executive director Laurie Dayon said. “Every girl is a superstar – it doesn’t matter what place she finishes in. It’s crossing the finish line that lets her know she can do anything.”

The race is sponsored locally by Centegra Health Systems, Sage Inc, Power Construction, Mathnasium, Enjoy Your Ride, The Running Depot, Bartlett Tree Company, The UPS Store on Route 176 in Crystal Lake, BGL Law, The Northwest Herald and Home State Bank. Organizers would like to recognize the city of Woodstock and Woodstock North High School for their support of the 5K. The 5K is open to the community and is a fundraiser for Girls on the Run of Northwest Illinois. The cost for the event

is $30 before May 14 and $35 on race day. Register online at www.gotrnwil.org. Girls on the Run of Northwest Illinois is a nonprofit organization for girls in third through eighth grades, which uses an experiential learning program designed to help girls make good choices for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. Its mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. For information, visit www. gotrnwil.org.

Rische can earn college credit by participating in program • MUSIC Continued from page B1 Jonathan Cole. He said more applicants are turned down than are accepted. While participating in the program, Rische can earn college credit, which would be useful as she hopes to major or minor in voice when she goes to college. To apply for the program, Rische submitted two clips of her performing op-

era songs: “Reward” by John Jacob Niles and “Ridente al Calma” by Mozart. While at Tanglewood, Rische will receive solo singing and training, voice classes, sing in a chorus, perform opera scenes and take classes with “master” instructors. “The format is very similar to what one would see in a conservatory,” Cole said. Rische said she is most looking forward to performing the opera scenes.

“I’ve never done them before,” Rische said. “I’m looking forward to getting a lot of stage experience there.” Participants in the young singers program also will perform at a Boston Pops concert with movie composer John Williams. “There are so many opportunities with it,” Rische said. “You get to go to masters classes and work with extraordinary people that teach at the Metropolitan Opera.”

Rische started taking voice lessons after appearing in a talent show during her freshman year at Cary-Grove, and last year attended a singing program at Oberlin College & Conservatory in Ohio. Michelle Hackman, of Cary, is Rische’s voice coach and encouraged her to apply. “Boston University’s College of Fine Arts is one of the best programs in the country,” Hackman said. “She’ll get a lot of experience.”

Studio 222 Architects hired for $116K worth of work of trees set to be removed, it made more sense to purchase the equipment, Public Works Director Jon Schmitt said.

It will be used by the finance department for payroll and other internal functions, for utility billing and for the adjudication court’s case management.

• SCHOOL BOARD Continued from page B1 pathologist with the understanding the person would serve three districts and schedules would be made in cooperation. “Kids aren’t cars,” Dahlem said. “We got one shot to make sure we do it right.” One disappointing development for some districts was the lack of a clear path for more efficient transportation models. Kevin Werner, chief financial officer for District 47, said expanding the Transportation Joint Agreement District 47 and District 155 have shared for decades to the three other districts would not result in financial savings.

The program, which includes more than 125 buses serving roughly 15,000 students, would only realize some savings with the addition of districts 46, 26 and 3 at the expense of other districts, according to a recently completed feasibility study. Still, Werner said close looks at route efficiencies and other potential savings would continued to be explored. Tim Mahaffy, superintendent for District 3, said all board members should continue to discuss ideas for more partnerships and not hesitate to collaborate with colleagues across communities. “We share the same students and we share the same families,” he said. “We all have the same mission.”

Alternative revenue bonds to appear on May 20 agenda • WOODSTOCK Continued from page B1 pan out, the burden falls on taxpayers. In this case, Woodstock officials pledged membership fees to pay for the purchase of the building and membership, and park impact fees to pay for the construction to add-on to the building, Christensen said. Tuesday night, the Woodstock City Council held a public hearing on the proposal to sell bonds from the 2003 transaction so that the alternate revenue bonds can be purchased. No members of the public spoke during the hearing –

a requirement under state statute. An ordinance authorizing the alternative revenue bonds to be issued is scheduled to appear on the May 20 City Council agenda. The ordinance will combine the 2003 debt with debt from several other projects, including road improvements, Davis Road Soccer Fields construction and Merryman Park construction. That debt, currently combined as series 2005B bonds, is already in the form of alternative revenue bonds. “That was the second reason,” Christensen said. “We want to combine them into the same type.”

WOODSTOCK: NOT GUILTY PLEA

8LOCAL BRIEFS

Woodstock teen denies sex assault of 15-year-old at party

Woman receives suspicious package

By CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – A Woodstock High School teen denied allegations that he was one of three boys who sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl at a party last year, and a fourth accused of videotaping the encounter. James Cornelius, 18, who remains in custody in lieu of $80,000 bond, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to felony sexual assault and misdemeanor sexual abuse charges against him. The most serious charge carries a possible prison sentence of four to 15 years. According to police, Cornelius, Corion V. Simpson, 18, and another juvenile boy sexually assaulted the girl while a second juvenile recorded the alleged incident. Simpson also was charged

as an adult and remains in custody at the McHenry County Jail. The juveniles were charged but released to their parents. Prosecutors have said that all the teens were drinking alcohol, including the 15-yearold girl who does not attend school with the boys. James Video of the alleged assault is Cornelius believed to have been posted on Facebook and used to intimidate the girl into further sex acts. The video has since been removed, Woodstock police have said. Authorities were notified by the girl’s father in late February of the incident that allegedly happened Dec 27. Cornelius’ next court date is June 3.

County warns of jury duty scam WOODSTOCK – The 22nd Judicial Circuit of McHenry

Wednesday, May 7, 2014 • Page B3

County has received reports about attempts to use missed jury service as a means to defraud residents, the county said in a news release. There have been two alleged victims who received similar phone calls informing him or her that an arrest warrant had been issued for failure to appear for jury duty, county officials said. The caller tells the victim that he or she needs to post $500 for the bond on the warrant and that the matter should be taken care of as soon as possible to avoid jail time. The caller then instructs the victim that the bond must be posted using an e-pay card, according to the news release. Any person receiving such a telephone call is encouraged to report it to police. Court Administrator Dan Wallis said a warrant is not the first step if one misses jury duty. A series of letters would come and finally a summons to appear before a judge would come first. Any correspondence is written and would originate from the McHenry County Jury Commission Office at 2200 N. Seminary Ave. in Woodstock. For information, call the Jury Commission Office at 815334-4390.

PHOTOS FROM BROWN BODYGUARD TRIAL RELEASED

THINGS

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

Wednesday, May 7, 2014 • Section B • Page 6

WASHINGTON – A judge has approved the release of five photos that prosecutors entered into evidence in the assault trial of singer Chris Brown’s bodyguard. One image shows Brown posing with two women outside a Washington hotel last year before the alleged assault. Another shows Brown and bodyguard Christopher Hollosy in custody. Other images show Parker Adams, the man the pair are accused of punching after he tried to get on the singer’s tour bus, with a bloody nose and shirt. Hollosy was convicted of assault and plans to appeal. Brown’s trial was delayed for months. Hollosy told police that he, not Brown, punched Adams.

Councilman: ‘Scandal’ wants to shoot in D.C. WASHINGTON – A D.C. councilmember said he’s in touch with a producer for the ABC TV drama “Scandal” who’d like to bring the show to the city to shoot scenes in August. Councilman Vincent Orange said the “Scandal” shoot would be dependent on continued funding of the city’s film incentive program. “Scandal” is set in Washington but shoots in Los Angeles. Washington’s incentive fund has $4.5 million this fiscal year. Mayor Vincent Gray’s office has proposed moving the money elsewhere and committing just $1 million to incentives next year. Orange said the city needs incentives so shows set in the capital actually shoot scenes there. He’s also met with producers for the Netflix drama “House of Cards,” shot primarily in Maryland. Others said the incentive money could be better spent elsewhere.

Stunners, bummers from the Met Gala NEW YORK – There were stunners, snoozers and bummers at the Met Gala, the former led by Sarah Jessica Parker, Karolina Kurkova and Sarah Silverman in stunning princess ball gowns and the latter led by, well, many. Erykah Badu took Pharrell’s hat to new heights with a swath of added bling, Maggie Gyllenhaal wore dots – albeit Valentino dots – and Lupita Nyong’o went for it in “divisive Prada,” as one critic noted, dressed in parrot green flapper gear that included a jeweled cage overlay with large feathers on each side and a short brown sheath underneath. Kristen Stewart wasn’t far behind with an uh-oh moment of her own in busy, busy Chanel that was bejeweled, befeathered, nubby and metallic, cut in the middle by a wide waist band of some sort. Black and white ruled the evening Monday at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in honor of a new Costume Institute exhibit showing off the classic work of designer Charles James. Parker’s hair was high for her walk up the elegant staircase as she channeled James in black bodice, long white gloves and full gown by Oscar de la Renta. The designer even signed the look in red at the bottom of the back hem. Silverman wore a classic strapless silhouette in maroon by Zac Posen and Kurkova was in a soft blue, tiered gown with floral touches from Marchesa. The Jamesian black-and-white color combos – Badu’s amazing trouserand-trench outfit was from Givenchy – were joined by pops of yellow: Thank you, Olivia Munn, in low-cut Diane von Furstenberg, Jourdan Dunn in custom Topshop and a floral from Carolina Herrera on Emmy Rossum. Reese Witherspoon added some hot pink in a simple, strapless Stella McCartney.

MSNBC apologizes for Cinco de Mayo segment NEW YORK – MSNBC is apologizing for a Cinco de Mayo segment that featured a staff member on-screen wearing a sombrero, shaking maracas and taking a swig from a bottle of tequila. The network said Tuesday the interlude on its “Way Too Early” show Monday featuring correspondent Louis Burgdorf and host Thomas Roberts wasn’t intended to be disrespectful. The show apologized online and will express its regret Wednesday on the air. Hugo Balta, president of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, said it was abominable that the segment was done by a news organization. He said it feeds “the ignorant misconceptions of a rich and proud people who unfortunately are too often portrayed as caricatures to be scoffed at.”

Reality show cast member guilty in fraud scheme ATLANTA – Federal prosecutors said the husband of a “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail, wire and bank fraud. Department of Justice officials said in a news release Tuesday

that 35-year-old Apollo Nida pleaded guilty to his involvement in the $2.3 million scheme. Nida is the husband of Phaedra Parks, one of the reality show’s stars. Prosecutors said beginning in 2009, Nida and co-conspirators stole and obtained checks, filed fraudulent tax returns and made fraudulent claims against the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in the victims’ names in at least 11 states. Prosecutors said the group also took out phony auto loans and created fake documents and websites to secure them. Authorities said the group laundered the money by stealing victims’ identities and opening bank accounts in their names.

Capus joins CBS evening newscast as top exec NEW YORK – Former NBC News chief Steve Capus will join CBS in July as the top executive at Scott Pelley’s evening newscast, the network said Tuesday. Capus left NBC in 2013 after eight years as president of the news division, part of a turnover triggered by troubles at the “Today” show. He was Tom Brokaw’s last executive producer at NBC’s “Nightly News” and is close to Brian Williams, whom he will now compete with each night. Capus will also have broader responsibilities as executive editor of CBS News, behind chairman Jeff Fager and President David Rhodes. He will replace Pat Shevlin, who has transferred to “60 Minutes.” Division-wide and at Pelley’s newscast, CBS favors a more meat-and-potatoes news approach than its rivals. But it has been unable to climb out of third place in the ratings, and lately second-place ABC has shown more life, with “World News” beating Williams’ NBC telecast three out of four weeks in a youthful demographic, although not among all viewers. The evening news has worked to differentiate itself from its rivals, and Rhodes said he hopes Capus can bring out more distinctiveness with his experience running a top-rated evening newscast and news division. Since leaving NBC, Capus has been executive in residence at the IESE Business School in New York, where he will continue to have a role.

WHITE SOX 5, CUBS 1

Cubs spoil another strong start By ROBERT QUESENBERY The Associated Press CHICAGO – The Cubs wasted another strong performance from a starting pitcher. Gordon Beckham’s tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning helped the White Sox beat the rival Cubs 5-1, spoiling starter Edwin Jackson’s performance. “I would say this is probably the best game that I’ve thrown,” said Cubs starter Edwin Jackson, who ended up in a no-decision after going seven innings and giving up one run while striking out a season-high nine.

More inside Turn to page C4 to read more from Tuesday’s Cubs-White Sox game at Wrigley Field. That wasn’t enough for the Cubs to avoid their third straight loss. The Cubs also had Pedro Strop leave the game with assistant trainer Ed Halbur after delivering a pitch to Alejandro De Aza. The Sox took a 1-0 lead in the fourth on Alexei Ramirez’s run-scoring fielder’s choice, bringing in Beckham. But in the fifth, the Cubs tied the

game on Emilio Bonifacio’s two-out single, driving in Junior Lake. Beckham was 1 for 6 in the Sox’s 3-1, 12-inning win Monday over the Cubs, but he matched a career high with four hits Tuesday. The fourth one, on a 1-2 pitch with two outs from Neil Ramirez (0-1), gave Beckham his first homer of the season and the White Sox the lead, one they held to sweep the two-game series. “[Beckham] hit the ball all over the place and then that was a big home run for us tonight, said White Sox Manager Robin Ventura. “He’s been trying to find that since he came

off the DL. It’s nice to see that out of him.” The Cubs hoped to have a better performance against Sox starter Hector Noesi, who was 0-10 with a 6.04 ERA during his past 14 starts. “We had a chance possibly to work Noesi a little bit, but we did not do that, obviously,” Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. “He actually threw better than what I saw in his last outing, commanded the zone a little bit better.” Noesi went five innings and AP photo allowed one run while striking The White Sox’s Moises Sierra (center) is picked off first on a throw out six.

Seniors lead Prairie Ridge past McHenry By CHRIS CASEY ccasey@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – The Prairie Ridge girls soccer team made their senior night one to remember Tuesday. Seniors Allyson Walsh and Erin Ginsberg each scored a goal for the Wolves, as they dominated McHenry, 4-0, in the FVC Valley Division match. “We have been playing so well lately,” Wolves coach JC Brown said. “We talked about certain things before the game and we executed them perfectly. I’m happy the girls got a win for themselves, as well as sending the seniors out strong.” McHenry had few scoring opportunities largely because of the Prairie Ridge defense, led by senior Ali Fan-

ning. Her task on the night was to shut down Warriors leading goal scorer Avalon Senn-Raemont, which is exactly what she did. “Coach gives me a number before the game, and I know my job from there,” Fanning said. “I’m up for any challenge he gives me and I’m happy the whole team played together and got the win.” Senn-Raemont was unable to get as many touches as she usually does, and when she did touch the ball, Fanning was always right there to pressure her to give up the ball or make a mistake. Allyson Walsh opened the scoring for Prairie Ridge (10-6-1, 4-1 FVC Valley) 10 minutes into the first half,

followed by her sister, Megan Walsh, quickly after. McHenry (10-6, 2-2) got a chance with 10 minutes remaining in the first when Kailey Lindholm’s corner kick went straight through the six-yard box, just past two sliding Warrior forwards and out for a goal kick. “We did a good job limiting their chances,” Brown said. “Ali [Fanning] was tremendous. But it takes a full team effort to get a win like this tonight, and we put ourselves in position to compete for the top of the conference.” The Wolves had a three-goal lead at halftime, thanks to a late goal from Arielis Reyes.

BURLINGTON – Richmond-Burton right-hander Mike Kaska’s starts normally are crisp and effective, which lead his teammates to a level of comfort behind him on the field. But Kaska was not his usual dominant, and almost unhittable, self Tuesday. Burlington Central grabbed that easiness R-B usually feels and strangled it, just as it has with the Big Northern Conference East Division lead. Burlington’s Danny Gerke threw six strong innings and hit a two-run home run off Kaska as it defeated R-B, 7-3, in their BNC East baseball game. The victory gave Burlington (13-7 overall, 7-1 BNC East) a onegame lead over R-B in the division. “It just wasn’t our day, for whatever reason,” R-B coach Mike Giese said. “We were uncomfortable in all aspects. Our defense Mike Kaska was uncomfortable. Our pitching, [Kaska] was uncomfortable at times. We did some uncharacteristic things. Sometimes you put forth your best effort and it just doesn’t go right.” Burlington scored twice as many earned runs off Kaska (six) as he had allowed in 30 previous innings. Kaska struck out eight, walked three and gave up seven hits as R-B dropped to 11-7, 7-3. “I was falling behind batters and, when you do that, it forces you to throw more fastballs,” said Kaska, who is 5-1. “They jumped on it and put it in play and got baserunners and were moving it around. The first couple innings I felt good. I made some errors leaving pitches up.” The wind, gusting from left field to right field, played a part in the first when Burlington’s Reed Hunnicutt’s fly ball to right was blown well over R-B’s Jake Kaufman for a triple. Burlington took a two-run lead, but R-B answered right back with four consecutive singles and scored three runs. Kaska cruised to the fourth, but walked Cody Schuver before falling behind to Gerke, 2-0. “I was looking fastball away, I knew he brought it a little bit, so I tried to take it to right,” Gerke said. “I thought I hit it pretty well, but once I got it up in the wind, there was no way that jet stream wasn’t going to take it out [of the park].” Kaufman just turned and ran for the fence. “It looked like a pop-up off the bat and the wind took it out,” Kaufman said. “It was a good 30 or 40 feet over.”

Warriors fire coach Jackson after 3 seasons

Drafting QB in late rounds not ruled out

OAKLAND, Calif. – The Golden State Warriors have fired Mark Jackson, ending the franchise’s most successful coaching tenure in the past two decades but also one filled with drama and distractions. General manager Bob Myers thanked Jackson in a statement Tuesday for “his role in helping elevate this team into a better position than it was when he arrived nearly 36 months ago.” Myers said it was a difficult decision, but the Warriors “simply feel it’s best to move in a different direction at this time.” Jackson’s three seasons with the Warriors will be remembered for the way he helped turn a perennially losing franchise into a consistent winner, and the bold and bombastic way in which he did it.

By ADAM JAHNS ajahns@suntimes.com With the Brian Piccolo awards ceremony as the backdrop, members of the Bears organization, including Jay Cutler, reminded everyone of how important the quarterback position is in the NFL and especially to them. The accomplishments and overall character of former backup Josh McCown were honored Tuesday at Halas Hall – a strong reminder of what the Bears lost and the Buccaneers have gained. “It’s impossible to replace a person like Josh McCown,” Cutler said. Yet, there was new backup Jordan Palmer sitting next to coach Marc Trestman and a seat away from Cutler. The Bears are hoping he

could be everything McCown was here. “I feel very good about Jordan,” Trestman said. “I feel good about his preparation. His work ethic is very similar to Josh. He spends a lot of time here. He’s taken over the tradition now of getting these new guys ready. “Right at this point, you’d have to feel good about Jordan’s experience. He doesn’t have a lot of hits on him right now. He’s very much engaged in the offense.” The Bears have been adamant about their belief in Palmer, who has only attempted 15 career passes. But there’s still the lingering possibility that a another quarterback comes in to compete with Palmer and practice-squader Jerrod Johnson. General manager Phil Em-

ery’s research may indicate that drafting a quarterback may be not worth a late-round selection because “there isn’t a single quarterback after the third round since [2006] that has been a long-term starter,” he said last week. But what about a potential backup? There are some current Jordan Palmer ones who were drafted in the mid to late rounds since 2006, including Palmer, a sixthround pick out of Texas-El Paso in 2007. In other words, the Bears selecting a late-round quarterback this week can’t be ruled out. Trestman actually suggested that option at the NFL owners meetings in March.

ALBANY, N.Y. – The NFL should pressure the Washington Redskins to change its name, a bipartisan group of New York lawmakers said Tuesday. The group plans to introduce a resolution denouncing the football team’s use of the word “redskin” and urging team owner Daniel Snyder to pick a new name. If the resolution passes, New York lawmakers would join a growing list of those criticizing the team’s name, including members of Congress from both parties. “We shouldn’t have to put forth this resolution,” said Democratic Assemblyman Keith Wright. “The word is absolutely offensive to the Native American community and beyond.”

BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush Most of you have probably noticed that the NFL Draft is two weeks later this year. For the past four decades or so, the draft has been held on the final weekend of April. But it was moved to the second weekend of May this year allegedly because of a conflict with the Radio City Music Hall venue in New York City. Considering that Roger Goodell had mentioned several times before the “conflict” arising that the league could push the draft back, supposedly to allow teams more time to prepare, most think the “conflict” excuse is a crock. The commissioner and his minions made this move for marketing and TV purposes, certainly their right, but it is a bit puzzling why they won’t just admit it. Perhaps it’s because it has not been a popular move so far, not only with a number of fans, but with a number of teams. Bears general manager Phil Emery said last week that he loves it, basically an extension of his favorite time of the year. Makes sense and he seemed truly enthused when he said it. But I spoke to the president of another NFL team Tuesday who told me his general manager hates it and that they’re actually really upset about the two weeks of evaluation time after the draft that are clearly lost in a simple case of cause and effect. That club would rather have the time to figure out what they got instead of extra time figuring out whom to get. The clubs I’ve spoken to around the league are split about 50/50 as to whether they like the change or not. I’m not sure whether most fans really care. Preparing for an NFL Draft is classic talk radio fare and the faithful never tire of asking, guessing and predicting. Conversely, analyzing the draft

Federer withdraws from Madrid as twins born MADRID – Roger Federer withdrew Tuesday from the Madrid Open to welcome the birth of his second set of twins. Federer said on his webpage early Tuesday he was pulling out of the tournament “to be with my wife Mirka during these next few exciting weeks for our family.” The fourth-ranked Swiss player, who already has twins, said he would “rejoin the tour soon.”

Ex-boxing champion Ellis dies at 74 LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Jimmy Ellis, a heavyweight champion who sparred with an up-andcoming Muhammad Ali and later fought some of the era’s best boxers, died Tuesday. He was 74. Ellis died at a Louisville hospital, brother Jerry Ellis said. Jimmy Ellis had Alzheimer’s disease in recent years. Ellis, the son of a preacher who loved singing gospel music, held the WBA heavyweight title from 1968 to 1970. He lost to Joe Frazier in a fight to unify the world heavyweight championship in 1970. In 1971, Ellis was stopped by Ali in the 12th round. He retired in 1975. Ali remembered his longtime friend as a “master in the ring.”

In that regard, perhaps Goodell is right. He has stolen attention from the other major sports during some of their prime time, to the benefit of his marketing and broadcast partners in his offseason. The guy’s no dummy, you know? So the only ones it clearly benefits are the 32 owners and their bank accounts. Regardless of what the fans, scouts and coaches think, don’t expect the draft to move back to April any time soon. We’re also told the draft may be on the move geographically as well as

chronologically. Goodell has acknowledged that several cities, most notably Chicago and Los Angeles, have expressed an interest in hosting the NFL Draft and that a change could be considered as soon as next year. This also is a bit of a puzzle to me. Why do Chicago and Los Angeles want it? This will mark the 38th draft I’ve covered and, for the first eight to 10 years, I would go to New York. But there is no action there. Not a single NFL decision-maker is there, so there’s really no benefit to being there. It is far more exciting and enlightening to be in the building with one of the teams drafting, where you also get everything from New York on TV.

There are maybe two or three representatives from each team, so less than 100 folks total coming to town to impact the tourist industry with maybe 100 or even a couple hundred journalists. Perhaps all the times someone would mention on TV that they’re in Chicago or Los Angeles would have some advertising value, but, really, could that be worth it? The truth is the NFL Draft remains one of my very favorite weekends of the year – in April or May. But the logistics and politics of the whole thing are really irrelevant.

sometimes it was brutal to watch, but they challenged each other, they pushed each other and they complemented each other. “For that reason, Josh had the success he had and I think Jay would be the first to tell you that a lot of his success was due to Josh.” It’s that dynamic that comes into consideration for the Bears when it comes to drafting a quarterback regardless of round. “[Palmer] certainly looks like he can sufficiently throw the football the times we’ve seen him work and he’s a joy to work with every day and to help develop,” Trestman said. “We all know that every quarterback’s journey is different; sometimes quarterbacks excel at different times in their lives.”

The question is: Would a rookie quarterback shake up the room too much? The Bears’ backup situation tends to be more unique than others, considering Cutler’s injury history and the Bears’ enthusiasm to call the quarterbacks room the most important at Halas Hall. Being able to work with Cutler is as essential as being able to play well in his place. “When two quarterbacks were as close as Jay and Josh were, there’s got to be competition, there’s got to be challenge, but more than anything, there’s got to be an understanding and love for one another,” quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh said. “It was evident every day. They both got their unique way of dealing with each other. Sometimes it was fun to watch and

8INSIDE BASEBALL Athlete of the Week Abby Kissack Marengo, senior, P/1B Kissack did it all for the Indians this past week. The senior hit a home run Friday and then hit two more homers during Saturday’s Marengo softball tournament third-place game, when Kissack went 4 for 5 with two home runs and drove in four runs. Earlier that day, Kissack threw a perfect game in a five-inning game against Fenton. As an encore Monday, Kissack hit another homer in a win against Harvard. In the past few games, Kissack was 10 for 16 with four home runs.

Noteworthy Marengo impressive: A trio of players has helped Marengo start off strong in Big Northern Conference East Division play. Kissack, junior outfielder/pitcher Veronica Ruelius and senior left fielder Gabbi Markison have combined to form a dangerous group of hitters, showing a mix of power and hitting for average. Behind their bats, the Indians sit atop the BNC East with a 5-0 record. While Kissack put together an impressive last week, her teammates have been nearly as hot hitting. Ruelius has provided a good mix of hitting for power, which includes home runs, as well as Markison, who has hit two home runs in recent games. Although Marengo has won some blowout games this season, the Indians have displayed a propensity to pull out close wins – thanks in part to their ability to consistently hit home runs – which bodes well for them come playoff time. McHenry coming together: The Warriors should be thrilled they are in the middle of the Fox Valley Conference Valley Division schedule. Ever since they have moved past the early nonconference slate of games, the Warriors have found a way to come together a string together important wins. McHenry is in the midst of a nine-game winning streak that has helped them move into sole possession of first place in the FVC Valley with a 5-1 record. McHenry coach John DiFrancesca said his team’s turnaround starts with the battery of junior pitcher Kristin Koepke and junior catcher Carly Mattson. The duo has started mixing their pitch calls better and understand the importance of speed and location. “I really love the way they’ve come together,” DiFrancesca said. “I’m not making excuses, but we started the season without the whole ship together. We just didn’t have everybody. It just took time for the baking to be done, if you will.” The Warriors will be tested in the coming week, however, as four of their final six division games occur during that span.

This week’s top games Jacobs at Prairie Ridge Thursday, 4:30 p.m. Wolves freshman pitcher Hailey Baker will be tested by a Jacobs lineup that has the ability to consistently hit home runs. It’s an important game for Jacobs if it wants to stay in contention for the FVC Valley title. Crystal Lake South at Cary-Grove Thursday, 4:30 p.m. Although the Gators just beat C-G to finish third in the Woodstock softball tournament, expect another close game with each team featuring battle-tested pitchers. Huntley at McHenry Monday, 4:30 p.m. Both teams have proven they can score, so the onus will be on the defense to limit mistakes, which could prove costly for Huntley and McHenry’s opportunistic offenses.

NORTHWEST HERALD Johnsburg defeated Carmel with a 7-0 forfeit Tuesday despite trailing the Corsairs, 9-2, in the fifth inning of a nonconference softball game. That’s when things got interesting. Carmel catcher Jenny Behan slipped and fell while rounding third base in the fifth and hurt her elbow. Skyhawks coach Wally Warner said he thinks that Behan may have broken her arm in the fall. Behan, a junior, has committed to play at Division I James Madison in Harrisonburg, Va. Warner said he dug out the base and reseated it. At that point, Warner said Carmel coach Jason Raymond began kicking and complaining about the base. Raymond informed the umpire that he was pulling his girls off the field and accepted the resulting forfeiture. “I felt bad for [Behan],” Warner said. “She slipped on the base. It didn’t pop out or anything.”

By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN dvanschouwen@suntimes.com Third baseman Conor Gillaspie is expected to return from the disabled list Wednesday, which could mean a move to AAA Charlotte for the White Sox who leads the team in atbats. Marcus Semien, whose .220 average has been tolerable because of his speed, a knack for making pitchers work, 16 RBI and a flair for the dramatic late in games, Conor Gillaspie would have to share time with the left-handed hitting Gillaspie. If fourth outfielder Jordan Danks (.075) is sent down, the Sox will have to rely on utility infielder Leury Garcia (.267) or Adam Dunn as their fourth outfielder. Continued development is the bigger issue for Semien, so the Sox have to decide whether he’s better off playing every day at Charlotte or moving around between third base and second base – spelling Gordon Beckham – or even shortstop. “Yea, I mean you could have that,’’ manager Robin Ventura said. “That’s part of the thought process of going through it that you want to make sure that he’s able to play and continue to progress and that stuff that goes into the decision, and we’ll see what happens.” Third base coach coach McEwing said Semien could be better off facing “the best pitchers in the world” four or five days a week than AAA pitching every day. This and that: Adam Dunn was a late scratch with a bruised right calf sustained when Starlin Castro brushed against him at first base Monday. ... The Cubs’ Jeff Samardzija presented Paul Konerko with a “14” sign from the Wrigley Field scoreboard before the game. It was Konerko’s last appearance at Wrigley. ... Chris Sale had a good session of long toss.

Pitching staff in disarray By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN

White Sox starting pitching stats

dvanschouwen@suntimes.com These 2014 White Sox were rebuilt with an eye on being good enough in a year or two to be a real, live postseason contender, and – big if – the chips fell the right way, maybe even good enough to contend in 2014. One-fifth of the way into the season, the chips are spilling on the floor and rolling every which way. Staff ace Chris Sale will miss his fourth starts on the disabled list Wednesday with a flexor muscle strain, and when he’s coming back is anybody’s guess. Right fielder Avisail Garcia is out for the year and leadoff man Adam Eaton is on the DL with sore legs. The pitching staff – cited by general manager Rick Hahn as a reason to not write off 2014 as a rebuilding year only – is in such disarray that relief pitcher Hector Noesi, who was shelled by the Sox while wearing a Texas Rangers uniform in early April, was claimed off waivers by the Sox and shoved into the starting rotation. Noesi, who was 0-6 with a 7.04 ERA in career starts on the road, made his sec-

reach .500 with a win against the Cubs. They can see what the plan is for the future but players by nature won’t settle for losing. “We had enough of that last year,” 34-year-old closer Matt Lindstrom said before the game Tuesday. “Nobody likes to lose. Everyone is looking forward, looking forward, but we can compete this year. We’re here to compete.” For the veterans like Lindstrom, Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko, who in all probability or certainty won’t be here when the Sox’s young core is expected to hit its stride, to heck with looking ahead. “Every year is a year of your career, and you want to win,” Lindstrom said. “It’s

so much more fun to win. It’s not cliché.” Winning without Sale just isn’t going to happen. But in the Sox’s current state, there is no reason to rush back a franchise pitcher not suited for cold weather, so all the time that is necessary will be taken. His absence, though, is being felt in the Sox clubhouse. “It does take a little wind out of our sail because every time he takes the mound we have a better than average chance to win the game,” Lindstrom said. “For one thing, he leaves it all on the field. That’s the type you want for your No. 1. He sets the tone for everyone else in the rotation, the starters have a kind of competition between each other. One goes seven innings, the next guy want to do better.” Lindstrom said the worst thing for a pitcher is to throw with any level of fear that your next pitch might put you on the shelf. That explains why Sale needs to be all the way back before he comes back. “We know this is precautionary,” Lindstrom said. “It’s not how you start it’s how you finish. And we’re going to need him to finish.”

CUBS NOTES

Renteria has Samardzija’s number

Samardzija trade talks quiet for time being

By GORDON WITTENMYER gwittenmyer@suntimes.com CHICAGO – How many pitches are too many for Jeff Samardzija? So far the Cubs are fortunate enough they haven’t found out. And while it’s impossible to know something like that until a team’s medical staff comes into play, Cubs manager Rick Renteria admits he walked a fine line when he extended Samardzija to a career-high 126 pitches in an effort to get his ace an elusive victory on a near-freezing Monday night against the White Sox. That would be the same Sox who let their All-Star ace, Chris Sale, extend to 127 pitches on April 17 – the same Chris Sale who hasn’t pitched since then because of a muscle strain near his elbow. “I put myself in a no-win

situation potentially,” said Renteria, who admitted only Tuesday that he had a 125 limit in mind as Samardzija took the mound for the ninth – and that Dayan Viciedo was the final batter he would have been allowed to face, inning-ending double play or not. “If he doesn’t get that double play, I’m not going to let him face the next hitter,” Renteria said. “I’ve got to think about his health, his well being, and the pitches he’s thrown.” As it was, a front office that fired manager Grady Little in Boston a decade ago for allowing Pedro Martinez to pitch longer than advised in a playoff game, watched anxiously Monday night. And planned to talk with Renteria about the decision and policy with Samardzija going forward. “In general you don’t like to see a guy get up that high,” general manager Jed Hoyer

said. “That said, we don’t have enough knowledge to know at what number things turn into danger and when they don’t. Because of that we try to focus a lot on pitch stress. … “But certainly after an outing like that we’re all going to sit down and discuss it. If a guy went 104 pitches in five innings, we’d discuss that, too, because they’re probably equally stressful.” Versions of the debate have raged among pitchers, coaches, trainers, orthopedists, analytics professionals, GMs, managers and fans for more than two decades – with little more than a general consensus that pushing the limits under stress is harmful. By all accounts and indications, Samardzija pitched stress free much of the night, at least until allowing his only two walks of the game with two outs in that ninth inning – just ahead of Viciedo.

“Obviously, when he had the two walks in the ninth, that starts to raise your eyebrows,” Hoyer said. “Is he getting tired? Just because you’re a big, strong guy doesn’t mean you don’t get tired. … It’s certainly not a trend when it comes to his pitch counts, and obviously something we monitor going forward.” Coincidentally, Tuesday was the 16th anniversary of Kerry Wood’s 20-strikeout game, a 122-pitch masterpiece in his fifth career start. He would go on to exceed that total five more times in the next 3½ months – and finished the season on the DL with an elbow injury that eventually required Tommy John surgery. Nobody’s suggesting Samardzija is suddenly in danger of injury. But it’s the heart of the risk-reward analysis that goes with any uncharted pitch-count territory.

Sox’s Sierra finishes with career-high 4 hits • CUBS-SOX Continued from page C1 Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija’s nine-inning, three-hit outing Monday was on Jackson’s mind. “That game yesterday, Samardzija threw a hell of a game,” Jackson said. “I can’t lie and say that didn’t give me some extra motivation today to come out and follow up that performance with a strong outing.” The teams start a two-

game series Wednesday across town at U.S. Cellular Field. Moises Sierra had a career-high four hits for the Sox, starting in place of Adam Dunn who was scratched about 30 minutes before the first pitch because of a bruised right calf. Dunn did pinch-hit for reliever Zach Putnam in the eighth and grounded out to short. Putnam (1-0) had an 18.90 ERA in five games for the Cubs last season but threw two scoreless innings for the

Sox, who have won consecutive games against the North Siders for the first time since taking three in a row in 2012. The White Sox got three insurance runs in the ninth, two on Jordan Danks’ double off Pedro Strop – that also gave the White Sox their third straight win after a four-game skid. Strop left after giving up all three runs in the ninth with a left groin injury. He is scheduled to have an MRI Wednesday. It was also a departure

from Noesi’s first start of the season, when he lasted just 3⅔ innings and allowed four runs in an April 30 loss to Detroit. Notes: Cubs RHP Jose Veras, on the disabled list since April 26 with a strained left oblique, threw a scoreless inning Tuesday during a rehab stint for Double-A Tennessee. ... The Cubs will play a day-night doubleheader at Cincinnati on July 8 to make up the game from April 28, which was postponed because of rain.

By GORDON WITTENMEYER gwittenmyer@suntimes.com CHICAGO – As imminent as a trade of Jeff Samardzija has looked since long before the season started, that doesn’t mean he’s getting moved anytime soon. Despite breathless blogger speculation and early-May media questions about potential trade talks, Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said it’s quiet – as usual this time of year – on the trade front. Seven starts into the season, with the second-best ERA in the majors (1.62), Samardzija might pitch in the All-Star game before he’s traded. “Teams have to have a sense they can’t fill a hole internally or they can’t make a big enough improvement internally [to seek trades],” Hoyer said. “And people don’t usually come to that conclusion in May. That’s why the trade conversation usually takes a while to get going.” Third watch: D e s p i t e 5-for-42 skid that includes 19 strikeouts, the subject of sending rookie third baseman Mike Olt to the minors has not been discussed, manager Rick Renteria said.

OKLAHOMA CITY – Kevin Durant has plenty of scoring titles. Now, he finally has an MVP trophy to go with them. The Oklahoma City Thunder star won the NBA’s top individual honor Tuesday, grabbing 119 first-place votes. Miami’s LeBron James, who had won the last two MVP awards and four of the previous five, finished second with six first-place votes and Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers was third. Durant, a 6-foot-9 forward, won his fourth scoring crown in five years this season by averaging 32 points a game. He helped the Thunder finish the regular season with a 59-23 record, second-best in the league, despite playing much of the season without three-time All-Star Russell Westbrook by his side because of a nagging knee injury. “He’s been the most consistent guy all season long,”

Spurs 116, Trail Blazers 92: At San Antonio, Tony Parker had 33 points and nine assists and the San Antonio Spurs never trailed in a resounding 116-92 victory over Portland, bullying the younger Trail Blazers in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals Tuesday night. Kawhi Leonard had 16 points and Tim Duncan added 12 points and 11 rebounds for San Antonio. More importantly for the Spurs, their bench contributed mightily after being virtually non-existent in the series against Dallas. Marco Belinelli had 19 points and the Australian connection of Aron Baynes and Patty Mills had 10 points apiece. LaMarcus Aldridge had 32 points and 14 rebounds and Damian Lillard had 17 points for Portland, but the All-Star duo combined for just 17 points in the first half as San Antonio built a 26-point lead. The two teams will square off in Game 2 at 8:30 p.m. Thursday in San Antonio.

MIAMI – Turns out, the Miami Heat can beat the Brooklyn Nets. And rest hardly led to rust for the two-time defending NBA champions. LeBron James scored 22 points, Ray Allen added 19 and the Heat stayed perfect in this postseason by beating the Nets, 107-86, on Tuesday night in Game 1 of an Eastern Conference semifinal series. It was the first win for Miami in five meetings with Brooklyn this season. “It’s one,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “But I liked the energy, the activity.” Chris Bosh scored 15 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, Dwyane Wade finished with 14 points and Mario Chalmers had 12 for Miami, which LeBron James recorded at least one regular-season win against every team except Brooklyn, losing four times by a total of 12 points. This one was a different story. A 24-9 run in the third quarter blew things open for the Heat, who hadn’t played in eight days after sweeping Charlotte in the opening round. “It was great that we were able to come out the way we did after being off eight days,” James said. “We got a lot of work in. We had eight days off of not playing a basketball game, but Spo got us in the gym. (We) got each other in the gym. We made each other accountable throughout the layoff and it proved tonight.” Deron Williams and Joe Johnson scored 17 points each for the Nets, who got only eight from Paul Pierce and no points from Kevin Garnett in 16 minutes. Game 2 of the best-of-seven series is Thursday night. “This is the defending champs,” Nets coach Jason Kidd said. “It’s always going to be at a high level, and we’ve got to find a way to match it.” James finished 10 for 15 from the field and Allen – who had never faced his former Boston “Big 3” compatriots Pierce and Garnett in the playoffs – was 4 of 7 from 3-point land. “He was focused on the job at hand,” James said. Miami’s lead was 55-52 early in the third quarter after a 3-pointer by Williams, and every indication was that the Heat and Nets – who played three one-point games and a double-overtime affair in the regular season – were heading down to the wire again. Not quite. The Heat took off on the 24-9 run over a 7-minute span, with Bosh scoring the first seven points of that burst to get Miami going.

MONTREAL – P.K. Subban, Dale Weise and Lars Eller each had a goal and an assist, Carey Price made 26 saves, and the Montreal Canadiens beat the Boston Bruins, 4-2, on Tuesday night to take the lead in their Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series. The Canadiens are up 2-1 with Game 4 set for Thursday in Montreal. Tomas Plekanec also scored for the Canadiens, who were outplayed for long stretches but made the most of quick-strike attacks. Patrice Bergeron and Andrej Meszaros scored for the Bruins, who outshot Montreal 28-26. For the third straight game, the Canadiens held a 3-1 lead in the third period. This time, they didn’t let it completely slip away. Tuukka Rask was pulled with 2:20 left to play, and only four seconds later, Meszaros beat Price with a high shot through traffic off a feed from Milan Lucic. But the Bruins failed to get the equalizer in the frantic final minute. Then Eller got loose to score into an empty net with three seconds to go. The Bruins took control of the puck through the first 10 minutes of play. But Michael Bournival made a gritty play to get the puck around the boards to Subban, who left it for Thomas Vanek for a diagonal pass. That gave Plekanec a shot into an open side for his third of the playoffs at 10:57.

Cooking for

Mom

A forbidden take on a healthy rice pudding By SARA MOULTON The Associated Press

S

peaking as a mom and a chef, let me assure you – one of the nicest things you can do for Mom on Mother’s Day is cook for her. Something sweet is best. And my candidate? Comforting, traditional rice pudding. Or maybe not so traditional. Classic rice puddings are made from plain white rice. The grains are very tender, the flavor is kind of bland, and the color is white. In my recipe, which is made using black forbidden rice, the grains are slightly chewy, the flavor is slightly nutty, and the color is deep purple. Once upon a time forbidden rice was said to be literally forbidden. First cultivated in China, forbidden rice was so rare – and so nutritious – no one was allowed to eat it except for the emperor. Today, forbidden rice is considered a delicious and healthy whole grain we can all enjoy. Like brown rice, forbidden rice is unpolished; the hull of the grain, a rich source of insoluble fiber, is left intact. It’s

Inside: Mother’s Day dessert that’s easy, flaky and delicious also a good source of iron and vitamin E, and a great source of the same antioxidants that put the blue in blueberries. I was first introduced to forbidden rice six years ago, when it was still rare. Thankfully, these days it’s readily available at most grocers.

In this recipe, the rice is cooked until tender, then combined with whole milk, sugar, cinnamon, eggs and vanilla. The whole milk – replacing the more traditional (and more caloric) heavy cream – does a great job of delivering the desired silkiness. The cinnamon stick and vanilla – which deliver big flavor – are the most important ingredients next to the rice. If you’ve been waiting for an occasion to use that extra-special Sri Lankan cinnamon or Tahitian vanilla you received as Christmas gifts, now’s the time to pull them off the shelf. Making this recipe is pretty near a snap. It shouldn’t require more than 15 minutes of your undivided attention. The rest of the time it’ll just simmer away on its own. Unlike brown rice, forbidden rice cooks up in a relatively speedy 30 minutes. You will, however, need to pay close attention when you add the eggs, making sure they don’t get so hot that they scramble. Finally, I’d like to encourage you to top it all it off with some crystallized ginger, as suggested. It was one of my mom’s favorite little treats and it provides the perfect finishing touch of chewy, spicy contrast to the creamy pudding.

Forbidden Rice Pudding Start to finish: 3 hours 25 minutes (15 minutes active) Servings: 4 1/2 cup forbidden rice (Chinese black rice) 1 cup water 2 1/2 cups whole milk, divided 3 tablespoons sugar 1 large cinnamon stick Salt 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 cup chopped crystallized ginger, to garnish (optional) In a small saucepan over medium-high, combine the rice and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook, covered, for 30 minutes. Let stand for a few minutes, then pour through a mesh strainer to discard any excess water. Return the rice to the pot over medium-high heat. See PUDDING, page D2

Mom’s tart is part quiche, part lasagna By ALISON LADMAN The Associated Press Lasagna isn’t typically associated with Mother’s Day, but it is the dish that inspired us this year as we searched for a fresh way to offer Mom a delicious brunch. We took some of our favorite lasagna ingredients – ricotta cheese, spinach, thyme and Asiago cheese – but instead of layering them with noodles, we mixed them together in a rich, but still light tart filling. With a store-bought crust, the tart can be in the oven in 20 minutes and on the table 40 minutes later. And similar to a good quiche, this tart can be served hot or room temperature.

Heat the oven to 375 F. Coat an 8-inch tart pan with a removable bottom with cooking spray. Press the pie dough into the tart pan, trimming any excess. In a skillet over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the spinach and cook until completely soft and most the of the liquid has evaporated, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer the spinach to a fine mesh strainer. Using a spoon or silicone spatula, press the spinach to extract any remaining liquid. In a medium bowl, beat the egg, then add the ricotta, thyme, lemon zest, salt, pepper and spinach. Stir to combine. Spread the mixture in the prepared tart shell and sprinkle with Asiago cheese. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown.

Spring onions serve as ideal Herb and cheese starting point for Italian risotto crepes for any meal By STEPHANIE WITT SEDGWICK Special to the Washington Post This is a right-now dish, when fresh spring onions show up in some markets. Lighter than leeks and more substantial than scallions, these onions are a good starting point for a risotto. Swiss chard adds earthiness and pancetta a classic Italian flavor. A spring onion looks like a scallion on steroids; it is the young onion before the bulb gets really large. There are different varieties out there, but they all work. If you can’t find spring onions, leeks are a good substitute here.

SWISS CHARD AND SPRING ONION RISOTTO 4 to 6 servings 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 ounces diced pancetta 8 ounces spring onions, light green and white parts, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced (2 cups) 5 ounces Swiss chard, tough stems removed, cut into roughly 1-inch squares 1 cup arborio rice 1/2 cup white wine 4 cups homemade or no-saltadded chicken broth, heated until almost boiling 2 to 4 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese Freshly ground black pepper Kosher salt

WASHINGTON POST

Heat the oil in a 4-quart pot over medium-high heat. Once the oil shimmers, add the pancetta Swiss Chard and Spring and stir to coat. Cook for 4 or 5 Onion Risotto minutes, until the pancetta starts to crisp. Add the sliced spring onions; cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring, until the onions soften, then add the chard and cook for about 4 minutes, stirring until it has softened. Stir in the rice; reduce the heat to medium, then pour in the wine. Cook, stirring, until the wine is absorbed. Add 1 cup of the warm broth and stir until the liquid is almost fully absorbed; then add the broth 1/2 cup at a time, stirring and allowing the liquid to be absorbed each time before adding more. After 3 cups of the broth have been incorporated, start tasting the rice to see whether it is done. If it is still too firm, add 1/2 cup of the broth, stir until that is absorbed and then test for doneness. Repeat with the remaining 1/2 cup of broth if needed. When the risotto looks creamy and the rice is slightly firm to the bite, it’s done. Remove from the heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the cheese. Season lightly with the pepper, stirring just to incorporate. Taste, and add some or all of the remaining cheese, plus salt and/or pepper as needed. Serve right away.

A savory crepe can be enjoyed at any meal. Don’t worry if your first crepe sticks; subsequent ones will get easier. Serve with fruit salad or a green salad. The crepes are best made and served right away.

Herb and Cheese Crepes With Lemon Herb Butter 4 to 6 servings (makes 12 crepes) From Maine cookbook author Kathy Gunst. 3 large eggs 1 1/4 cups low fat milk (2 percent) 3 tablespoons melted, salted butter 1 cup flour 1/2 cup grated cheese, such as a combination of aged Gruyere and Parmigiano Reggiano (may substitute your Mom’s favorite hard/ semi hard cheeses) 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives 1 tablespoon finely chopped flat leaf parsley 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme or dill For the lemon herb butter 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) salted butter 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives 1 tablespoon finely chopped flat leaf parsley 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme or dill 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest (regular or Meyer lemon) Freshly ground black pepper Kosher or fine sea salt (optional)

Make the crepes: Heat an 8 inch skillet or crepe pan over medium heat. Add a touch of the remaining tablespoon of melted butter. Once the butter’s hot, stir the crepe batter to smooth. Add 1/4 cup of the batter to the hot skillet; immediately swirl it around to create a very thin coating over the entire bottom of the skillet. Cook for 60 to 90 seconds. Use a thin metal spatula to loosen the crepe around the edges and carefully flip it over. Cook the second side for a minute or more, until it just begins to turn a pale golden brown. Slide the crepe onto a plate. Repeat to use all the batter, stacking the crepes flat on the plate as you work. (You may wish to keep the plate of crepes warm in a 200 degree oven as you work.) Serve the crepes loosely folded over (once or twice), or rolled into a fat cigar shape. Drizzle with the lemon herb butter.

‘Twerking’ isn’t dangerous, Suicide prevention begins it’s just the latest dance fad with monitoring risk factors

Connecticut Dear Mom: Don’t panic. “Tripping” and “getting high,” as you already know, refer to altered states of consciousness as the result of using drugs. “Catfishing” is something else. It’s pretending to be someone you aren’t, creating a false identity on social media, usually to pursue a deceptive online romance. The “twerking” your son was referring to is a dance move recently made famous by Miley Cyrus – in which the dancer (usually female) gyrates in a provocative, semi-squatting position that involves thrusting hip movements. Dear Abby: My husband and

you agree it would be rude? –

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips

Mannered Southern Gal Dear Southern Gal: Sorry,

I are not big fans of his best friend’s wife. “Aracely” is extremely ill-mannered. She never says thank you, didn’t even write thank-you notes for their wedding and baby showers, and when we’re at a restaurant will loudly announce the food was “disgusting.” Aracely claims our baby “cries too much.” She arrived at my son’s second birthday party with a hangover and so much more. She claims she doesn’t observe our “Southern ways” because she comes from South America and has been in the United States for only eight years. We keep our interactions with her limited, but do not cut her off completely because my husband values his friendship with her husband. I told my husband I’m considering giving her an etiquette book, but he said it would be rude. I disagree. I think it would nullify Aracely’s argument that she doesn’t understand our “Southern” manners. Do

but I do agree, because the gift would be given with malicious intent. Her problem isn’t that she doesn’t understand good manners because she’s from South America. I have met people from South America who are educated, cultured and whose manners are refined. Obviously, Aracely does not come from this kind of background. Only if you could pull it off without sounding catty, the next time she hauls out the excuse for her deplorable manners, you might “offer” to buy her an etiquette book “so she can learn the ways of her adopted country” – but don’t expect her to take you up on it. Dear Abby: Would it be appropriate to send my future mother-in-law a Mother’s Day card? I feel it would be a nice gesture to help start the relationship between us. – Nick In Omaha Dear Nick: I concur. In fact, I suspect it will melt her heart to know you feel that way about her, even before you marry her daughter. • Write Dear Abby at www.

Dear Dr. K: My husband suffers from severe depression, and I’m worried he might take his own life. How do I know if my fears are warranted? Dear Reader: Most people who commit suicide are depressed. But most people who are depressed do not commit suicide. We can’t predict who will commit suicide, but experts observe certain factors increase a person’s risk of suicide. • Family history. People with a close blood relative who has committed or attempted suicide have a much higher than average risk of suicide. The risk of suicide also is higher if close relatives have had a history of any type of mental illness or violent acts. • Access to guns. Having a gun in the home makes suicide more likely. • Substance abuse. Alcohol or drug use can erase inhibitions and anxiety that might help keep suicide at bay. • Previous attempts. People who have attempted suicide are more likely to commit suicide than those who haven’t tried it before. • A significant life

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff change. A change in a person’s life can abruptly increase his or her risk of suicide (though most people in these circumstances do not kill themselves). These changes can include a significant loss, such as the death of a spouse or loss of a job; loss of social support, for example, because of a move; a personal crisis, such as a divorce; an illness or medication that triggers a change in mood; the suicide of a friend, peer or celebrity. • Setting affairs in order. Finally, there is a warning sign that is paradoxical and dangerously misleading. Has your husband recently sorted out his finances, given away mementos, or called or visited loved ones? Along with these activities, has he seemed calmer and happier lately? Of course, you want your husband to be happy. But if he suddenly seems happier and is doing things people

do as they approach the end of their life, be really worried. Rather than being a sign of returning health, his happiness might indicate he is at peace – after having made a final decision. A friend of mine lost his wife just this way. After many months of suffering, she finally seemed happier. She stopped seeing a psychiatrist, which he also interpreted as a very good sign. Then one day the unimaginable happened, and he was devastated. Look out for the factors I’ve discussed. If you believe your husband is suicidal, seek help immediately: • Talk with a doctor or a mental health professional. Very often, treatment eases or eliminates suicidal urges. • Call or encourage your husband to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (8255). • Encourage your husband to discuss his feelings with you and other trusted confidants.

Dear Abby: I’m the happily married mother of two teenage boys. The other day I overheard my older son (age 17) talking with a friend about “twerking.” I have never heard of it and now I’m worried. Is twerking a drug term? Is it similar to “tripping,” “getting high” or “catfishing”? My 17-year-old is supposed to go to Princeton next year on a sports scholarship, and I’m afraid “twerking” will derail him from his charted path. Thank you for any advice you might have. – Troubled Mom In

Arroz con pollo gives classic Winemaker embraces return to fickle varietal chicken burger a modern spin T he opportunity to embrace a troublemaker from a historic region was all Virginie Saverys needed. The owner of Avignonesi assumed control of the estate located in Italy’s Tuscan Appellation and has embraced both a return to natural winemaking and Sangiovese. While Sangiovese is Italy’s oldest quality-assurance labeled red wine, it is a varietal that both causes headaches and can yield fantastic rewards when the right touch is employed.

By STEPHANIE WITT SEDGWICK Special to the Washington Post

I was helping my son make arroz con pollo for a Spanish class project when it occurred to me the ingredient combination of this chicken-and-rice dish would make a terrific chicken burger. The result is a lighter, contemporary classic. Poblano and jalapeño peppers, scallions and cilantro add flavor and moisture to ground white-meat chicken, and the rice holds it all together. I tuck the patties inside warm, folded flour tortillas, with lettuce and tomato; you also could serve them on your favorite buns. As added garnishes, sliced avocado, a sprinkle of lime juice or a salsa topping would all work. Serve these burgers as soon as they’re done. That’s when they’re at their best. Many grocery stores carry ground chicken breast. But if you can’t find it, trim the fat from boneless, skinless chicken breasts, then pulse the meat in a food processor to the right consistency.

Arroz Con Pollo Burgers 4 servings 3 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 cup chopped scallions 1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch dice 1 small or 1/2 large poblano chili pepper, seeded and cut into generous 1/4-inch dice 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic Kosher salt 1 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro 1 pound ground chicken breast 1 large egg white

Winemaker spotlight Sangiovese is like a child. It needs constant attention and nurturing to reach its ultimate potential. “When it comes to having kids you wouldn’t want to have incredibly good-looking kids that have no common sense,” Saverys said in a Skype interview from Montepulciano, Italy. “I’m fortunate my kids are smart, funny and good looking. But yet [they] were a bit of a challenge. They acted like kids from time to time and made childish mistakes. That’s what parenting is all about. “Sangiovese offers that difficult task. Growing Merlot is a piece of cake; there is no challenge. The easiest path though is not always the most interesting. Just like people, vineyards can get better when they have obstacles to overcome. I like Sangiovese because it is fickle. It provides a challenge I like.” Saverys went all the way with her commitment to Avignonesi. Vineyards are farmed 100 percent biodynamic and organic. While regulations require only 70 percent of a wine be Sangiovese, Saverys changed Avignonesi to 100 percent. The elimination of pesticides and fertilizers was drastic. Saverys needed to only look at neighboring vineyards for proof. “I was skeptical at first,” Saverys

said. “But the soil rewarded us with the change. It really came back to life. There were ladybugs and butterflies everywhere. If you put a spade in the soil so much life comes out. The vineyards that still use chemical sprays look like a lunar landscape. That’s not how nature is supposed to be.” For confirmation the organic and biodynamic transition was effective, Saverys left a small portion treated by chemicals. The vineyard manager instantly knew which block had not been converted because of the lack of life present. The results are stunning. The task has required more work, but like a well-raised child. Avignonesi has shown the rewards to be worthwhile.

What to buy Rosso di Montepulciano, 2011, ($17): This is a smooth, easy wine with bright red fruit notes and a vibrant acidity. It is a nice introduction to wines from Montepulciano. Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, ($29.99): Beautiful cherry notes and herb spices of thyme and lavender highlight an elegant wine with smooth tannins. Nice acidity and balance allow for it to be enjoyed with a variety of dishes. This is the perfect example of what Sangiovese has to offer.

Workers sew fabrics at a garment factory in Jiujiang in central China’s Jiangxi province. After watching China narrow the United States’ lead as the world’s largest economy, Americans might be tempted to cheer the stumbles of the Chinese economy. Any schadenfreude would be short-sighted. In an interconnected global economy, bad news for one economic superpower typically is bad news for another – even a fierce rival.

Global repercussions Slowing Chinese economy likely to pinch U.S., too By PAUL WISEMAN and JOE McDONALD The Associated Press WASHINGTON – After watching China narrow the U.S. lead as the world’s largest economy, Americans might be tempted to cheer signs that the Chinese economy might be stumbling. Any schadenfreude would be short-sighted. In an interconnected global economy, bad news for one economic superpower is typically bad news for another – even a fierce rival. “It hurts,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics. “China is the second-largest economy on the planet. If growth slows there, it affects everybody.” Zandi estimates each 1 percentage point drop in China’s economic growth causes as much damage to the U.S. economy as a $20-a-barrel increase in oil prices: It shaves 0.2 percentage point off annual U.S. growth. That isn’t catastrophic. But to regain its full health nearly five years after the Great Recession officially ended, the U.S. economy needs whatever help it can get. A sharp slowdown in China also threatens the 28-member European Union, which outweighs even the United States if measured as a single economy. China is the EU’s secondlargest export market behind the United States. A stream of economic news from China has been rattling financial markets. Chinese manufacturing slowed in April for a fourth straight month. A Chinese lending bubble, driven by overbuilding, is stirring alarm. China’s growth in the January-March quarter slowed to 7.4 percent compared with a year earlier. It was its slowest quarterly growth since the 2008-2009 global crisis. For most economies, 7.4 percent growth would qualify as explosive. The U.S. economy hasn’t grown as

But for China, a still-developing economy that clocked double-digit growth through much of the 2000s, the latest figures qualify as a slump. And Americans and Chinese are linked ever more tightly economically. They buy each other’s products, invest in each other’s markets, visit each other’s tourist attractions. U.S.China trade in goods last year totaled $562 billion. China is the United States’ second-biggest trading partner and the No. 1 source of U.S. imports, according to the Congressional Research Service. Consider: • The number of Chinese visitors to America jumped 23 percent last year to 1.8 million. And the Chinese spend an average of about $6,000 a visit – more than tourists from any other country. “Shopping is the No. 1 activity for Chinese tourists,” says Jolin Zhou of Sunshine Travel, a Boston travel agency that specializes in Chinese tourists. • Chinese investment in U.S.

businesses, factories and real estate – tangible things, not including stocks, bonds and other financial instruments – has gone from virtually nothing a decade ago to $14 billion last year, according to the Rhodium Group, a consultancy. More than 70,000 Americans work at Chinese companies in the United States, up from almost none in 2000. • U.S. exports of goods to China have doubled since 2006 to a record $122 billion last year. In 2013, U.S. companies earned a record $9.7 billion in China. China’s economy is slowing as it shifts away from growth based on exports and investment in real estate and factories and toward growth fueled by consumer spending. The country is also contending with a surge in debt fueled by loans from state-owned banks. Outstanding credit has surged from the equivalent of 130 percent of China’s economy in 2008 to 200 percent last year, according to Capital Economics.

Office Depot is planning to close at least 400 U.S. stores. The company’s stock price jumped more than 15 percent Tuesday. Chairman and CEO Roland Smith said in a statement one of the company’s goals this year was to improve how its stores are positioned in North America to meet

Office Depot plans to close at least 400 stores BOCA RATON, Fla. – Office Depot is planning to close at least 400 U.S. stores, as its merger with OfficeMax resulted in an overlap of retail locations that can be consolidated. The combined company’s financial results beat Wall Street estimates for the January-March quarter and it raised its full year forecast for operating income on Tuesday. Its shares jumped nearly 16 percent Tuesday. The office supply retailer had 1,900 stores in the U.S. at the end of the first quarter, so the plans call for closing about 21 percent of them. Office Depot and OfficeMax Inc. completed their $1.2 billion deal last November. Office Depot said it has not quantified the number of jobs that will be affected by the store closures but that it will look to place its best talent impacted by the store closings into new roles, wherever possible.

WASHINGTON – The U.S. trade deficit narrowed in March as exports rebounded to the second highest level on record, led by strong gains in sales of aircraft, autos and farm goods. The deficit declined to $40.4 billion, down 3.6 percent from a revised February imbalance of $41.9 billion, the Commerce Department reported Tuesday. The February deficit had been the biggest trade gap in five months. U.S. exports rose 2.1 percent to $193.9 billion with exports to Canada and South Korea hitting all-time highs. Imports also rose but by a slower 1.1 percent to $234.3 billion, reflecting increased shipments of cellphones, clothing and other consumer goods and increased demand for heavy machinery and other capital goods. A smaller trade deficit can boost growth because it means U.S. companies are earning more on their overseas sales. In 2013, the trade deficit narrowed 11.2 percent to $474.9 billion, helping provide a small boost to overall economic growth. Analysts are looking for a similar small contribution to growth from a narrowing trade deficit this year. They forecast that an improving global economy will boost demand for U.S. exports. However, imports are also expected to rise as stronger U.S. activity increases consumer spending on foreign products. For the first three months of this year, trade was a big negative on overall growth, subtracting 0.8 percentage point in the first quarter as exports fell sharply compared to the final three months of last year.

WASHINGTON – U.S. home prices rose at a slightly slower pace in the 12 months that ended in March, a sign weak sales have begun to restrain the housing market’s sharp price gains. Data provider CoreLogic says prices rose 11.1 percent in March compared with March 2013. Though a sizable increase, that was down a bit from February’s 12.2 percent year-over-year increase. On a month-to-month basis, prices in March rose 1.4 percent from February. But CoreLogic’s month-to-month figures aren’t adjusted for seasonal patterns, such as warmer spring weather. Home sales and construction have faltered since last fall, slowing the economy. A harsh winter, higher buying costs and a limited supply of available homes have discouraged many potential buyers. Existing-home sales in March reached their lowest level in 20 months.

June 30 tax deadline snares average U.S. investors While most people are aware of the importance of the April 15 tax deadline, another important deadline, June 30, is approaching. Taxpayers with a financial interest in foreign bank and financial accounts with an aggregate value of more than $10,000 at any time during the year must file FinCEN Form 114, Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts by this date. An extension of time to file an income tax return does not extend the time to file this form, extensions are not allowed. While the purpose of the provisions for this report were to enable the IRS to pursue taxpayers whose intent was to avoid paying taxes by using various offshore transactions and accounts, the reality is many average United States citizens are surprisingly caught by the need to complete the FinCEN Form 114 by June 30. The requirements apply to “U.S persons,” which

age account, financial instrument account, or mutual fund or similar pooled fund maintained with a person or company in a country other than the United States. • An insurance or annuity policy with a cash value (such as a whole life insurance policy) • Retirement accounts maintained in other countries • Financial interest in the above accounts entails being the owner of record or holder of legal title, having financial interest in the entity that is the owner of record or holder of legal title, having signature authority to control the disposition of the assets in the account by direct communication with the financial institution, or the owner of record or holder of legal title acts as your agent or representative. Under certain circumstances, a taxpayer may be subject to Financial Crimes Enforcement Network

ACCOUNTING Judy Lynn includes those living in the United States and U.S. citizens living abroad, even if they do not owe any taxes, corporations, partnerships, trusts, limited liability companies and estates. Penalties for not filing can be severe, even for an innocent mistake. The following are financial accounts subject to FinCEN 114 reporting if the total of all accounts are greater than $10,000 at any point during the year: • A bank account, meaning a savings or demand deposit, checking, time deposit or other account maintained with a bank in a country other than the United States. • A securities account, broker-

(FinCEN) filing requirements without being aware of, or giving much consideration to the reasons: • A taxpayer is included on a bank account with a relative in another country. For example, if a U.S. taxpayer has a child or parent living in another country, the taxpayer might be included as a signer on the account without ever giving thought to the fact that they have a foreign financial account subject to the FinCEN rules. • A taxpayer is a greater than 50 percent direct or indirect owner of an entity with a bank account in a foreign country. Form 1099-DIV statements that come at year end should be examined closely to determine if they come from an address outside of the United States. If so, the issuer should be contacted to determine if the investments are held outside of the United States.

The penalties for failure to file the required FinCEN 114 are up to $10,000 for a non-willful violation, while a willful violation can subject the taxpayer to fines up to $100,000 or 50 percent of account balances along with possible criminal penalties. In addition, Form 8938, Statement of Specified Foreign Financial Assets, may have been required with the filing of an individual’s 1040 tax return due April 15 if aggregate fair market values of foreign financial assets exceeded $50,000 on the last day of the year or $75,000 at any time during the tax year ($100,000 and $150,000 for taxpayers filing as married filing jointly).

U.S. companies see opportunities in China

In Europe, companies are vulnerable to a further slowdown in China because of how much their trade there has expanded. China is especially key for Germany’s three luxury automakers – Daimler’s Mercedes brand, Volkswagen’s Audi and BMW. China is now a far larger market for BMW than is the United States. Some European carmakers have gone so far as to adjust their models to cater to Chinese customers, such as stretching the chassis and sumptuously outfitting rear seats on the assumption that the car’s primary user might have a chauffeur. Still, U.S. companies still see lucrative opportunities and are betting that Chinese authorities can continue to manage a healthy pace of growth. “In China’s case, the car was driving 80 miles an hour; now it’s at 60 miles an hour,” John Faraci, CEO of International Paper Co., told analysts in February. “It feels slower, but it’s still pretty fast growth.” Many U.S. companies plan to take advantage of a Chinese government push to clean up

“The overlapping retail footprint resulting from the merger provides us with a unique opportunity to consolidate and optimize our store portfolio, while maintaining the retail presence necessary to serve our customer,” Smith said. Office Depot said Tuesday that it expects to close 150 U.S. stores this year, mostly in the fourth quarter. It closed 14 stores in the first quarter, a company spokeswoman said. All of the store closures are anticipated to occur by

riod it lost $17 million, or 6 cents per share. Removing merger-related expenses and other items, earnings were 7 cents per share. Analysts surveyed by FactSet expected earnings of 3 cents per share. Revenue climbed to $4.35 billion from $2.72 billion. Pro forma revenue for the yearago period was $4.48 billion. Analysts expected revenue of $4.27 billion. The company raised its 2014 outlook for adjusted operating income to be at least $160 million from a prior view of at least $140 million. Shares of Office Depot rose 66 cents, or 15.83 percent, to $4.83 Tuesday.

consensus expectation among analysts surveyed by financial information provider FactSet. Munich-based BMW AG said Tuesday it “profited from increasingly friendly market conditions in the first quarter of 2014, particularly in Europe.” Sales were strong for its mainstay 3 Series and 5 Series, as well as its redone X5 sport-utility made in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Overall, revenues rose 3.9 per-

cent to 18.24 billion euros as the company sold 3.4 percent more cars in Europe, where markets have started to show signs of improvement. Demand started to recover from low levels after an economic crisis that weighed on incomes and sent unemployment up in countries such as Greece, Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Italy.

8IN BRIEF

Chinese leaders see the scarcity of clean water as a strategic weakness and possible source of political unrest. China accounts for one-fifth of the world’s population but has only about 6 percent of its drinkable water. “The market opportunity here is so large, and we felt that we wanted to be in a position to really take advantage of that opportunity and to build a plant large enough to export globally,” said Jeff Green, CEO of NanoH20.

the end of 2016. The store closings are expected to result in at least $75 million in annual savings by 2016’s end and add to earnings starting next year. Office Depot, which is based in Boca Raton, Florida, said that it’s still trying to determine expected working capital savings and costs related to the store closings. The company also reported its first-quarter financial results on Tuesday, which include results from OfficeMax. The year-ago results do not include OfficeMax. For the period ended March 29, Office Depot lost $109 million, or 21 cents per share. In the prior-year pe-

Albert Bandura, who was ranked in 2002 as the fourth most frequently quoted psychologist behind B.F. Skinner, Sigmund Freud and Jean Piaget, said, “Coping with the demands of everyday life would be exceedingly trying if one could arrive at solutions to problems only by actually performing possible options and suffering the consequences.” Unfortunately, though, at the bridge table, if you chose a line that fails, you are not given a second chance. You must arrive at a solution to your problem before playing on. In this deal, North launches South into six spades. West leads a fourth-highest diamond four. East wins with his king and shifts to the heart jack. How should South continue? If you and your partner would have bid to six clubs (or the lucky six hearts), well done. If you would have stopped in game in spades, you perhaps did well. But let’s suppose all those points caused North to have a surge of pointed-black-suit adrenaline. (Yes, this would be a

good deal for Roman Key Card Blackwood, because North would learn that an ace and the spade queen were missing.) The normal percentage play for no spade losers is a second-round inesse. However, if East has queen-third of spades, why didn’t he continue with the diamond ace at trick two, forcing dummy to ruff? He knows from his partner’s opening lead that you have another diamond in your hand. Don’t fall for it. Play off the spade king and spade ace. If West’s queen does not drop, you couldn’t have made the contract.

HOROSCOPE

! !

TODAY - Hidden assets and unsolicited financial aid will be welcome surprises this year. Consider investing in property or learning new skills. Family and friends will play a larger role in your life as well. If you keep the lines of communication open, you will be offered support, suggestions and hands-on assistance. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone will be overly sensitive. Don’t waste time on a no-win situation. Move on to more valuable projects, working with people who will contribute as much as you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will be in a celebratory mood today. Get out and party, or find other ways to share your happiness. Your power of attraction will help you get closer to someone special. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Finish any incomplete paperwork and tie up loose ends regarding investments, health issues or legal matters. The less you leave to chance, the better you will feel about the future. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It’s a good day to take part in networking functions and mingle with your peers. You will make new allies and find a platform to express your plans for the future. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be inundated with conflicting information. If someone is pressuring you, back away and take time to think things over. A mistake will turn out to be costly. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Love and romance will put a smile on your face. Plan a little surprise for someone you enjoy spending time with. Your kind gesture will pay off in many ways. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- A family member may not be interested in your plans.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Before making a financial decision, consult with the people who will be affected by the choice you make. Get all of the details firsthand before you trust someone with your hardearned cash. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You will be restless and looking for an adventure today.

BLACKHAWKS 0

GAME 3

WILD 4

HAWKS LEAD, 2-1 Hawks’ quick hits WHAT WORKED • Operation: Silence Give the Blackhawks credit for knowing exactly how to silence a hostile crowd in a hockey-crazy community. In the first period of Game 3, the Hawks stuck to the fundamentals and didn’t take too many chances, and the result was a 0-0 deadlock at the first intermission. Yawn, said the Wild faithful. • Clearing the zone On a team that’s loaded with stars and superstars, Hawks center Marcus Kruger doesn’t receive a lot of headlines. But Kruger does all of the dirty work that never shows up in a box score, such as when he cleared two pucks out of the zone during an early penalty kill. • Block party You’ve probably heard this before, but the Hawks are terrific at blocking shots. Defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson wore a protective guard around his neck and couldn’t speak before the game because he took a high shot to the throat in Game 2. So, what did he do in Game 3? He blocked a shot with his shin. Ouch. WHAT DIDN’T WORK AP photo

RARE AIR Hawks could become one of Chicago’s best dynasty ST. PAUL, Minn. – Indulge me while I traffic in hypotheticals. What if the Blackhawks skate through these playoffs? What if they win their second Stanley Cup in a row and their third in five seasons? What if they don’t stop there? What if the parades continue for several more years, and the city streets have a permanent layer of confetti? Would that be the greatest accomplishment in Chicago sports history, given the difficulties and vagaries of hockey? Am I getting ahead of myself here? Of course. I’m so far ahead of myself I need binoculars to see me. To even address the topic is to risk a very painful, very public execution at the Altar of Michael. But as wildly premature as it is, it’s not as crazy a conversation as it sounds. The Hawks are built to compete

VIEWS Rick Morrissey at a high level for a long time. Jonathan Toews just turned 26. Patrick Kane is 25. Duncan Keith is 30 and possibly on the way to his second Norris Trophy as the NHL’s best defenseman. The Hawks could have four players make the Hall of Fame – Toews, Kane, Keith and Marian Hossa – and Joel Quenneville should make it as a coach. Pause and think about that for a second. It is no small thing. Three of those players are in the prime of their careers. The fourth, Hossa, is 35, but anybody who suggests he’s near the end hasn’t been paying attention to how strong he is and the way he controls the puck. Let’s do some comparison shopping with the best teams

in Chicago sports history. The Bulls had the greatest player of all time in Michael Jordan when they won their six championships in eight seasons. He and Scottie Pippen would go on to make the Hall of Fame, as would Dennis Rodman, who played on three of those teams. Phil Jackson, their coach, would join them. The 1985 Bears have four players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame – Walter Payton, Mike Singletary, Dan Hampton and Richard Dent. You might recall that ’85 team. It’s one of the best in NFL history, and it resonates with Chicagoans like Italian beefs do. It also won just one Super Bowl. The 1969 Cubs, who didn’t win anything except eternal goat and cult status, had four Hall of Famers – Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Fergie Jenkins and Ron Santo. Leo Durocher made the Hall as a manager. The Cubs won back-to-

back World Series in 1907 and 1908 during a five-year span that saw in them in the Fall Classic four times. Hall of Famers Mordecai Brown, Frank Chance, Johnny Evers and Joe Tinker played on those teams. These Hawks, a franchise quite possibly in mid-dynasty, take a back seat to nobody except the Bulls. And they’re gaining on MJ & Co. Heresy? I don’t think so. For the Hawks, the great spoiler might end up being the capricious nature of the game. A hockey puck is a disc, and it has been known to roll, flutter and carom wildly. Despite all the effort, preparation and attention to detail, a lot comes down to chance. Lesser teams routinely beat better teams in best-of-seven series in the NHL. That rarely happens in the NBA. Then there’s the issue of injuries. The Derrick Rose saga aside, basketball teams

don’t have to deal with them as often as hockey teams do. The Bulls dynasty wasn’t slowed by boo-boos. It was slowed by Jordan’s decision to play baseball. At any moment, one or more of the Hawks stars could suffer a significant injury that could change everything. That’s not just getting ahead of ourselves; it’s getting ahead, and then, upon arrival, seeing the worst. The Hawks just want to talk about now. “In 10 years, maybe we can have this discussion,” defenseman Johnny Oduya said. “Then we’ll see what some of these guys in here have done. For the moment, it’s not really our focus. We’re trying to win a game today.” What fun is that?

BLACKHAWKS NOTES

Bollig finds motivation in Game 2 scratch By MARK POTASH mpotash@suntimes.com ST. PAUL, Minn. – Brandon Bollig gets the message. “It’s very tough,” Bollig said of being a healthy scratch in Game 2 of the Blackhawks’ second-round series against the Wild after playing in the Hawks’ first seven playoff games. “It’s not ideal. I went

through it last year and I definitely wasn’t interested in going through it again. “If and when I get back in the lineup, I am definitely not interested in being scratched again. He’s added some motivation.” Bollig was given the chance to prove it when he was active for Game 3 against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday.

Bollig has been on the fringe even as a fourth-line forward in the playoffs. He was averaging 6:24 of ice time in the postseason – just 4:33 in six games after the triple-overtime opener against the Blues. “It’s nice that we have this competition. It goes to show nobody can be complacent,” Bollig said. “It’s too bad for me that it happened to me. But

they have their reasons for it. I just use it as motivation.” The odd-man in: Joakim Nordstrom figured he’d be one of the “Black Aces” – minor-leaguers who skate with the team during the playoffs. But after playing in 16 regular-season games, the 22-yearold forward from Stockholm has played in three playoff games. He had 14:30 of ice time

in Game 2 against the Wild. “He gives us speed,” Quenneville said. “He gives us some pace, predictability defensively. We liked what we saw early in [training] camp. He’s going to progress. He’s one of those players that with time, he’s going to keep getting better – kind of like Krugs’ [center Marcus Kruger] earlier years here.”

• Getting back We give Patrick Kane all kinds of love for his offensive prowess, and deservedly so. But fair is fair, and it’s necessary to acknowledge that Kane’s inability to get back on defense led to the first goal of the game. In the third period, Wild forward Erik Haula sprinted in front of Kane and broke a scoreless tie. • Line dancing Hawks coach Joel Quenneville seemed willing to try anything to spark his team’s offense, but none of his tinkering worked in Game 3. At one point, Quenneville assigned Kane, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp to the top line. The maneuver looked great on paper, but it didn’t help the Hawks score. • Staying disciplined For the past two days, the Hawks spoke about the importance of staying disciplined and avoiding the penalty box in Minnesota. And what happened? The Hawks committed four foolish penalties. Defenseman Johnny Oduya’s hooking penalty with 3:34 to go in regulation spoiled any chance the Hawks had at a comeback. STARS OF THE GAME • Marian Hossa None of the Hawks fared particularly well, but Hossa fired three shots on goal and was not on the ice for any of Minnesota’s goals. • Niklas Hjalmarsson Win or lose, Hjalmarsson deserves credit for continuing to put his team’s chances ahead of his health. Hjalmarsson blocked four shots in Game 3 despite taking a shot to the throat two days earlier. • Duncan Keith It’s tough to find three stars from the Hawks after a woeful loss, but Keith was effective during his 28-plus minutes of ice time. He notched three hits, a blocked shot and a takeaway in 32 shifts. WHAT THEY’RE SAYING “You’re denying them what they really want to do and you’re willing to take one for the team. It’s an important art, it’s an important part of how you defend.” – Hawks coach Joel Quenneville on his team’s shot-blocking prowess

Hawks lack offensive punch as Wild turn tables By MARK LAZERUS mlazerus@suntimes.com ST. PAUL, Minn. – Minnesota Wild winger Zach Parise didn’t appear to be in much of a mood Tuesday morning to rave about Jonathan Toews. “He’s up for the Selke [Trophy] every year,” Parise shrugged. “He’s a good player.” You can forgive Parise for being a little tired of thinking about Toews. Parise spent the first two games of the second round being shadowed – and largely stifled – by the Blackhawks captain. After posting three goals and seven assists in the first round against Colorado, Parise entered Tuesday night’s Game 3 with just one assist and a minus-3 rating. In fact, the Wild’s top two lines came up empty at the United Center as Hawks coach Joel Quenneville took advantage of the home team’s right to make the last change, playing the matchup game to perfection. The Wild finally turned the tables in the third period

of Game 3, beating the Hawks 4-0 to snap their six-game win streak and cut their series lead to 2-1. It was the ninth straight time the Hawks lost the first road game of a playoff series – their last such win was in the 2010 Western Conference final at San Jose. After a slog of an opening 40 minutes – the Hawks held a modest 15-10 edge in shots on goal through two periods – the Wild found their offense in the third. First, Erik Haula chipped in a nice pass from Justin Fontaine at 1:41 of the third to give Minnesota a 1-0 lead. It was the fourth goal of the series for the Wild – one from a defenseman, two from third-liners and one from a fourth-liner. But Parise’s line – matched up against Brandon Saad, Marcus Kruger and Joakim Nordstrom rather than Toews’ line — finally broke through with a pretty goal of its own, as Mikael Granlund scored off a setup by Jason Pominville and Parise less than three minutes

later to make it 2-0. Parise scored on a power play with 2:35 left and Granlund added an empty-netter with 1:17 left. The Hawks started pressing offensively after that, but with the Wild on lockdown, the lead held. With Nick Leddy a healthy scratch for the first time in four years and Jeremy Morin back in the press box in favor of Brandon Bollig, the Hawks didn’t have much offensive punch. They mishandled the puck, their passes weren’t crisp, and their shots were off target all night. The much-maligned Ilya Bryzgalov made 19 saves for the shutout. Corey Crawford gave up three goals on just 16 shots. Parise had 25 shifts in Game 2. Toews was on the ice for at least part (often all) of 22 of them. Never mind a boisterous and supportive crowd or creature comforts – having the last line change is the real homeice advantage. “It makes a difference, yeah,” Parise said. “I think

that’s why you see throughout the playoffs, a lot of the home teams have been so successful this year. But either way, regardless of who you’re playing against, as a group we all have to be better individually.” Wild coach Mike Yeo shuffled his second and third lines Tuesday, encouraged his team to work around the Hawks’ shot-blockers in an effort to create some offense, and was able to free the top line of Parise, Pominville and Granlund from Toews’ line. It’s never easy against the Hawks, whose stellar team defense often gets overshadowed by their high-end offensive skill. But on this night, it was enough. “They’re a tough team to score on,” Parise said. “They play really well defensively, they block a lot of shots and they have the puck – they’re really good at possessing the puck. So sometimes you’re not going to get a lot of opportunities. But when you do, you have to put them in.”

Silent Hjalmarsson battles on By MARK LAZERUS mlazerus@suntimes.com ST. PAUL, Minn. – Niklas Hjalmarsson can’t speak. But that doesn’t mean he can’t play hockey. “He’s fine,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. Well, fine by playoff hockey standards, at least. Hjalmarsson took a puck to the throat Sunday off the stick of Jonas Brodin in Game 2 against Minnesota. He laid prone on the ice for a few moments and got up to the bench in obvious pain. He didn’t miss a shift. He rarely does. “He’s a Swedish Viking,” defensive partner Johnny Oduya said. Hjalmarsson has not been medically cleared to speak, and was wearing some protection over his throat during Tuesday’s morning skate at

XCel Energy Center. He played Wednesday in Game 3, but faced some unusual difficulties on the ice, unable to communicate with Oduya, Corey Crawford or anybody else. “There are some times where you’d like to have some communication with Niklas Hjalmarsson your partner, with a goalie, line changes, who’s up and not, who’s got who,” Quenneville said. “But he’s a smart guy and I think he’s pretty familiar with his partner, the goalie, those situations. And we’ll see how they adapt around the changes, how that plays out.” The Hawks entered Tuesday second in the postseason with 157 blocked shots, with Hjalmarsson leading the

“There are some times where you’d like to have some communication with your partner, with your goalie, line changes, who’s up and not, who’s got who. But [Niklas Hjalmarrson]’s a smart guy and I think he’s pretty familiar with his partner, the goalie, those situations.” Joel Quenneville Blackhawks coach league with 30 through eight games. It’s one of the reasons the Hawks have been so tough to score on, both in these playoffs and in recent seasons. “You’re taking away primary options by being in the shooting lanes, and all of a sudden they have to have their second and third looks, which isn’t as enticing,” Quenneville said. “You’re denying them what they really want to do and you’re willing to take one for the team. It’s an important

art, it’s an important part of how you defend.” Defenseman Ryan Suter said the Wild will have to get creative to start getting shots through to Crawford. “They’re a great shot-blocking team,” Suter said. “It seems like they’re always in the lane. I think if we can change the angle, maybe use the back wall, get pucks behind them, they might not come out so aggressive. It’s really important to try to get that puck through.”
