Interest grows as summer car shows rev up nostalgia Story by JEFF ENGELHARDT firstname.lastname@example.org n

here are not enough days in the week for Kerry Kirkley’s car shows. Kirkley, owner and operator of Double K Productions, runs eight weekly car shows during the summer including Thursday events in Huntley and hosts 35 competitive showcases during the same time. The popularity boom of car shows has come as no surprise to Kirkley who said as more baby boomers begin to retire they start to put disposable income toward nostalgic hobbies such as vintage vehicles. “Nostalgia definitely plays a part,” Kirkley said. “You’ll often hear a parent or grandparent walking by with kids and pointing to a car saying ‘I used to drive that when I was in high

and Port Barrington. The increasing frequency in events and close proximity to one another has created multiple groups of classic car enthusiasts who have been instrumental in growing interest in shows. Wayne Bastiaans, a member of Northern Illinois Streeters, said his love for car shows started in 2000 when he first went to the Cary Cruise Night. Over the years, he said he has seen the

The $47,479 parting gift that former McHenry County Public Health Administrator Patrick McNulty received raised the blood pressure of a County Board committee. McNulty, who retired at the end of May after 35 years with the McHenry County Department of Health, cashed in about 80 days of unused vacation time, or about four years’ worth, given the rate at which he accumulated it, according to records. While county government in 2006 significantly curtailed how much vacation time employees can carry over, the Board of Health at the time granted McNulty an exemption. The fact that McNulty’s case is unique, and that allegations of other health department executives having similar deals turned out to be unfounded, was not much of a consolation to the County Board Public Health and Human Services Committee. Member Paula Yensen, who addressed the issue at Wednesday’s meeting after learning of it, said taxpayers gave him “a very nice going-away present.” “I don’t know of anyone in the business world who gets that kind of a deal,” said Yensen, D-Lake in the Hills. “Most businesses require their employees to take their vacation or lose it, at most rolling over one week of vacation to the next year. But McNulty got a sweet deal due to a questionable decision by the Board of Health. I can’t blame McNulty for taking advantage of the gift. But I do question why the Board of Health allowed this.” The makeup of the 12-member Board of Health has almost completely changed since the exemption was granted. But the retirement payout may end up as a supporting argument if the County Board decides to take advantage of an impending state law that would grant it greater power to remove appointees from boards and commissions for not following financial, ethical and other guidelines.

But I do question why the Board of Health allowed this.” Paula Yensen D-Lake in the Hills McNulty’s cashed in 645 hours of vacation, calculated on the $143,526 salary he made at the time of his retirement, resulting in a starting monthly Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund pension of $7,943, or $95,316 a year, according to information obtained under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act. The IMRF said that figure likely will change slightly when it obtains his final wage report for June from the county. Because IMRF is administered differently from the five state-run pension systems – for example, its 3 percent cost-of living increase is not compounded – the impact of the vacation payout to his pension will not be as significant. Monthly pension is calculated by the average

Illinois residents could register to vote on Election Day By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press CHICAGO – From Election Day registration to more time to cast early ballots, Illinois voters could see fewer restrictions in November under a measure Gov. Pat Quinn is expected to sign into law. Democrats pushed the legislation last month on the second-to-last day of the spring session with the idea that it would boost voter turnout. However, Illinois Republicans claim
it is part of a larger effort to increase Democrats’ numbers at the polls in a competitive election, namely Quinn’s bid for a second full term against Republican businessman Bruce Rauner. The proposal, which follows abysmal voter turnout in the March primary, comes as a record number of voter questions also could appear on the November ballot. That includes a signature-driven effort for term limits backed by Rauner to poll-style questions pushed by Democrats that
wouldn’t affect policy. The topics include minimum wage, birth control and a tax on millionaires. Quinn favors the same-day voter registration plan as a way to remove barriers for voters. He dismissed claims Wednesday that the plan was an effort to pump up Democrats’ votes. “I think that’s baloney. We should ... find every way possible to encourage people to participate in the pro-
Gov. Pat Quinn speaks to members of the City Club of Chicago on April 28. Quinn is expected to sign a measure that would give Illinois voters less restrictions and more time to cast early ballots.

Ill. digs in its heel on Santa Anna’s leg SPRINGFIELD – First those Texans took our jobs. Then they took our money. Now they want our leg. Well, to be precise, Gen. Santa Anna’s leg. But a group of Illinois soldiers stole it fair and square – back in 1845. During the U.S. war with Mexico, Santa Anna skedaddled from the battle on a donkey and left his prosthetic leg behind in a carriage along with a bag of gold and a freshly cooked chicken. A group of Illinois soldiers ate the chicken, gave the Army the gold and kept the leg. One of the soldiers traveled about Illinois charging 10 cents for a peek at the appendage. Ah, those were the days, when entrepreneurship reigned supreme in the Prairie State. But today we are hobbled by high taxes, crippled by debt and staggered with high unem-
ployment. Texas, on the other hand, has pulled itself up by the bootstrap. The Lone Star State has no income tax. Its unemployment rate is among the lowest in the country. And the state is running a surplus. And they have accomplished much of this at the expense of Illinois. Between 1995 and 2010, $2 billion in personal income shifted from the Land of Lincoln to Lone Star State according to “How Money Walks” by Travis Brown. In fact, National Review noted earlier this year that a greater percentage of people was moving out of Illinois than any other state but
liked on either side of the border. Texans view him as the villain who led the slaughter at the Alamo. While Mexicans view him as the leader who lost much of their country’s territory to the United States. Despite this antipathy, he hasn’t been relegated to a historical footnote. Throughout his time in Mexican politics, Santa Anna managed to overthrow the Mexican government, be exiled from his country and lead Mexico into a fiscal crisis 11 times. And you thought Rod Blagojevich was bad. But Santa Anna was worse – and I’m not pulling your leg.
Rhode Island. By contrast, Texas’ population grew 5.2 percent between 2010 and 2013 – a higher percentage than anywhere but tiny North Dakota and Washington, D.C. But, cheer up, folks. We’ve still got the leg. And Texas wants it. The leg is on display at the Illinois State Military Museum Back in April, folks at the San Jacinto Historical Museum in Texas started a White House petition drive to have the leg returned to Texas. But Illinois is digging in its heel and not letting go. After all, this isn’t the first time some foreign power has sought our leg. Back during World War II, Democrats wanted to give the leg to Mexico as a gesture of goodwill, but Republicans gave that idea the boot, saying their opponents “didn’t have a leg to stand on.” Santa Anna isn’t particularly

LOCAL BRIEFS Batavia woman’s DUIs net 3 years in prison WOODSTOCK – A Batavia woman who previously committed at least three DUI violations was sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison. Michelle N. Delgado, 35, immediately was remanded to custody after pleading guilty to aggravated driving under the influence. Prosecutors agreed to reduce her initial charge to a Class 2 felony. She has at least three other DUI convictions, but this is her first sentence to the Department of Corrections, prosecutors said. Delgado was arrested Sept. 26, 2013, by Crystal Lake police. Her guilty plea was accepted by McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather.

Algonquin man pleads in stun gun incident SYCAMORE – The 57-yearold Algonquin man subdued with a stun gun by Sycamore police in October will report to DeKalb County Jail on July 9 after accepting a plea agreement this week. Robert Steger, of the 1300 block of Blue Ridge Parkway, pleaded guilty to resisting a peace officer in exchange for prosecutors dropping a more serious charge of aggravated battery of a police officer. He was sentenced to two years of probation and five months in jail. Steger was arrested about 5:30 p.m. Oct. 23, when police said he became combative with an officer who was investigating a report of a possible order of protection violation. The incident occurred near D&D Jewelers in the 300 block of West State Street, Sycamore. A trial was scheduled to begin Monday, but Steger accepted the plea agreement instead. If convicted of aggravated battery to a police officer, he could have faced probation or up to seven years in prison.

Area departments lay down sand to remove spilled diesel fuel near the intersection of Route 12 and Burlington Road on Wednesday after a semitrailer involved in a minor crash started leaking fuel. The accident, which occurred about 10:30 a.m., shut down Route 12 and Burlington Road in both directions for about nine hours. The roads were reopened around 7:30 p.m. At least 10 fire departments responded to the scene where McHenry County sheriff’s officials said a hazmat team was working to clean up about 100 gallons of diesel fuel that was spilled in the crash. The Richmond Fire Department was able to stop the diesel fuel from leaking into nearby ditches. There were no injuries reported in the crash.

Officials say McNulty was only exemption by Board of Health • RETIREMENT Continued from page A1 of the four-year bloc of highest income, which is typically at the end of a career. His 35 years qualify him for a monthly payout of 65 percent of that final calculated salary – McNulty was appointed to the health department’s top spot in 2001. However, a 2011 law meant to discourage “golden parachute” pension bumps will re-
Cruise Night popular with businesses • CAR SHOW Continued from page A1 attendance and variety of vehicles grow. Bastiaans, who owns a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air, said interest in vintage cars has grown so much that manufacturers have started to reproduce parts for classic cars so people can build a “new” 1950s car from the ground up. While some car show presenters spend tens of thousands of dollars, Bastiaans said it can also be for people just looking to work on a project with their children. “It’s a good way to teach kids old can still be good and not just to throw it away because it is an old item,” Bastiaans said. “You still see a lot of kids interested in the muscle car era, which is good to see.” Events such as Cary Cruise Night have been a hit with local businesses, as well. Brad Ball, executive director of the Cary Grove Area Chamber of Commerce, said the organization took over control of the event after previous organizers stepped down in the early 2000s. Ball said chamber members saw the potential the event had to connect the community and it has exceeded expectations, drawing more than 100 cars and huge crowds on some Wednesdays. “It’s hugely popular,” Ball said. “It’s an attractive, family-fun event that is a nice way to get outside. It connects the community with a lot of our businesses too. There are plenty of places to pop in and get something to eat or drink.” Kirkley said he does not see the trend slowing down anytime soon. He said more and more young people have their own weekly car shows with more modern vehicles. Those new lines of Camaros, Challengers, Corvettes and other cars, he said, also will stand the test of time. “It’s always really fun and really cool to see a younger person roll in with a classic,” Kirkley said. “But even the new cars I see will be really quality show cars in the years to come.”
quire the county to pay more into IMRF to compensate for the increase. Unlike the staterun pension systems, governments are required by law to pay into IMRF what its actuarial requires – and unlike the state-run systems which have at least $100 billion in unfunded liabilities, IMRF is solvent and almost fully funded. County Administrator Peter Austin and acting Public Health Administrator Joseph Gugle reassured committee
members that McNulty was the only exemption made by the Board of Health. While the County Board is responsible for appointing the health board’s 12 members, which includes a County Board member, state law gives health boards significant managerial autonomy. Austin is credited with prioritizing reform of vacation payouts upon his 2005 hiring as administrator. County employees can accumulate no more than an additional 50
A bill awaiting Gov. Pat Quinn’s signature would allow the boards of larger counties like McHenry to draft accountability standards for appointees to boards and commissions, and empower them to remove violators with a hearing and a twothirds majority vote. Yensen is chairwoman of the County Board Management Services Committee, which would be responsible for drafting said standards. The pension reform bill
percent of their vacation time – for example, an employee who gets two weeks a year can accumulate no more than one additional week. County government in recent years has pushed to bring the various boards to which it appoints into greater or complete compliance with its hiring and personnel policies. Aside from McNulty’s exemption, Austin said, the health board’s policy manual is practically identical to the county’s.
approved last year by state lawmakers contains a provision that prevents future participants in the state-run pension systems and IMRF from applying lump-sum payments for vacation and sick leave toward their pensionable salary. But that change has been stayed by the courts, along with the rest of the reform bill, as they deliberate lawsuits from public-sector unions challenging the reform bill’s constitutionality.
GOP concerned about lack of photo ID, voter fraud • VOTING Continued from page A1 process,” he told reporters in Chicago. “This is the essence of American citizenship.” Ten states and Washington D.C., allow same-day voter registration, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Several other Democratic-led states have approved plans expanding same-day registration or early voting. The Illinois plan, in addition to Election Day registration, would extend the early voting period by a day to the Sunday before the election
and remove the photo identification requirement for in-person early voting. It also would let Illinois’ public universities set up a campus location for in-person absentee voting on Election Day. The new rules would only apply to the November election, but bill sponsors said they’ll extend it if things go smoothly. They added that the bill follows other recent Illinois laws aimed at improving turnout. This year, 17-yearolds were allowed to vote in the March primary election if they turned 18 by the general election. Also, a law that’ll allow online voter registration takes effect next month.
“I’d prefer to be on the side to make it easier for those who are legally permitted to vote rather than folks who erect artificial barriers.” State Sen. Don Harmon D-Oak Park “I’d prefer to be on the side to make it easier for those who are legally permitted to vote rather than folks who erect artificial barriers,” said state Sen. Don Harmon, an Oak Park Democrat who’s a
sponsor. However, Republicans who lined up against the bill pointed to other voter-focused efforts this year, namely the possibility of seven ballot measures that could be up for consideration, most of them spearheaded by Democrats. They include four proposals to alter Illinois’ constitution and three poll-style questions. Election officials certify ballots later this summer. Republicans in other states expressed concerns about voter fraud, particularly without photo identification. And GOP-controlled legislatures in states including Wisconsin have taken recent steps to lim-
it early voting by limiting the days it’s available. “The Democrats, they are going to try and get whoever will vote for them to the polls,” said state Sen. Dave Luechtefeld, an Okawville Republican who voted against the Illinois plan. “Let’s get as many people to the polls who ... really care about America and understand what’s going on rather than people who have no clue what’s going on.” So far, Rauner, a venture capitalist from Winnetka seeking public office for the first time, hasn’t spoken at length about the measure, aside from saying he supports efforts to improve turnout.
Buses would run throughout Huntley Fundraiser this weekend • HUNTLEY Continued from page A3 The elderly residents within Rutland’s territory nearly lost public transportation after Grafton cut off its bus service to them following a failed effort to convince Rutland officials to contribute money. If Huntley trustees favor the MCRide option, they would formally vote later this year to establish the service. The extra time would allow village administrators to explore various funding avenues before the buses start traveling to Huntley in spring 2015. The village estimated its
financial portion at $48,582 for 2015, but officials are working to secure federal grants that would shave about $10,000 off that price tag. Aside from grants, trustee Nick Hanson would like to see other neighboring taxing bodies contribute to Nick Hanson the service since it would help all residents. “MCRide seems to be the best option for the community as a whole,” Hanson said. “It won’t be just for senior transportation but transportation for all the residents in the vil-
lage.” If eventually approved, the MCRide service would run Monday through Saturday during morning and daytime hours. Buses would run all over Huntley, including areas in Kane County. Bus fares vary from $2 for the general public to $1 for seniors and people with disabilities. Riders would be charged 25 cents for each additional mile traveled after the first five miles. MCRide already operates in Woodstock, McHenry, Crystal Lake and surrounding townships. If extended to Huntley, riders also could travel to locations that use MCRide.

Ness estimates that she cut about 70 miles off the trip because of blisters • WALK Continued from page A3 “I am so close that I am a little like, ‘Oh my God, now what am I going to do?’ ” Ness said over the phone from Fredericks, Maryland, where she was staying at a church for a couple of days while the trails dried from recent rain. The trip hasn’t been without complications for Ness, the executive director of Shelter Care in Rockford and a former director of Turning Point in Woodstock. Ohio police stopped her more than once, running her license before ultimately allowing her to continue. In Pittsburgh, Ness’
“I am so close that I am a little like, ‘Oh my God, now what am I going to do?’ ” Lou Ness Over the phone from Fredericks, Maryland switch from pushing a cart full of belongings to lugging a backpack caused a shift in her walking weight distribution. Blisters formed on her feet. Ness called a woman she’d met in Pittsburgh, who upon arriving found her new friend immobile. “I was laying on the parkway in the grass, probably looking like a dead woman,” Ness said. Ness went to the emergency room, skipping some miles
along the way. She estimates that she cut about 70 miles off the trip because of the blisters. But the setback was temporary. Ness has continued her march. She uses five adjectives, in succession, to describe the up-and-down experience: “difficult, strenuous, arduous, wonderful, remarkable.” “I didn’t actually expect it to be quite the way it was,” Ness said.
She’s spent much of her time – when not along lengthy stretches of pavement – in small, rural communities, an experience at once heartening and awakening, she said. “They are just suffering,” she said, but she added the sense of community is strong in these areas. “People are coming together to care for each other. They’re still remarkably resilient.” But the trip also has filled her with another sense of hope – belief that she’s not outmatched in fighting structures she says are stifling advancement of lower-class individuals. She said she’s been energized to come back to Woodstock and McHenry County
and call for change that she believes will, over time, end the area’s poverty. “Quite frankly, I never thought I’d get out of Chicago,” Ness said. “If I can do this, we can do that. It is possible. I believe it now more than ever before.” Ness plans to reach the Washington National Cathedral on June 19, where friends and supporters will await her, she said. The group will complete the trip with a five-mile walk to the Capitol. “I don’t know what’s going to happen at the Capitol,” Ness said. “I’ll probably thank everybody for coming. And then I’ll get in my car and come home.”

When he returned to the US, he got his first job as a teacher and football / basketball coach at Marian Central Catholic High School, where he was recently honored with induction into their Hall of Fame, along with his good friend Tom Parsley. After college, he was a sales executive with Ladd Enterprises and sold most of the homes in the Coventry subdivision of Crystal Lake.

A black bear, spotted by DeKalb County Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Duehning while on patrol, was seen Wednesday near Derby Line Road south of Genoa.
Black bear makes its way across state, spotted in DeKalb County By LAWERENCE SYNETT email@example.com GENOA – Something unexpected crossed the road in front of Genoa resident Steve Kleba near the intersection of routes 72 and 23 on Wednesday morning. He pulled over and took photographs of an American black bear, which state officials and law enforcement believe is the same animal recently spotted in Rockford, in Freeport and across northern Illinois. “It’s a black bear in DeKalb County, how surprised would you be?” Kleba said. “When it crossed the road, I knew right away it wasn’t a deer or a coyote. I turned around, and sure enough, it was a bear.” A deputy from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office was later called to the area and saw the bear multiple times. It likely weighs between 250 and 300 pounds and would stand 6 feet tall if it were on its hind legs. “This bear seems nonaggressive and hasn’t been aggressive with people or property,” DeKalb County Sheriff Roger Scott said. “He is moving around and we are monitoring his movements, but as long as he is nonaggressive, we are going to let him be a bear.” The bear was later found
near Derby Line Road in a heavily wooded area close to the Ellwood Greens housing development. At 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, a caller reported seeing the bear near Lukens and Plank roads in Sycamore. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources also was called to assist in monitoring the bear, which it believes has traveled pretty extensively in the past week. A person near Rockford spotted a bear eating berries outside Saturday. Early Sunday morning, Roscoe police spotted a bear, too. On Monday, Ogle County Sheriff’s personnel unsuccessfully searched for a black bear that a resident reported seeing roaming in the western part of the county. “We are assuming it’s the same bear,” said Hank Frazier, Region 1 commander for the IDNR. “It was at a bird feeder on Memorial Day weekend. That seems to be its M.O., it goes to bird feeders, cleans them out and then takes off. It hasn’t been aggressive or caused any problems.” The increase in bear sightings is not unexpected in the greater Chicago area, said Seth Magle, director of the Urban Wildlife Institute at Lincoln Park Zoo. “This is something that is not going to be a flash in the
pan, but rather increase as we continue to green our urban spaces,” he said. “[Green spaces] are a good thing, but attract wildlife. We need to start investigating management strategies, and what to do when this happens.” Frazier believes the bear may have come from Wisconsin. “We caution everyone not to approach it, leave it alone and, hopefully, it will eventually move its way north,” he said. “If it becomes aggressive or hostile, we would have to take action, but right now, we hope it continues to stick to itself. My biggest concern is that it heads east and ends up in the more metropolitan areas.” As bears go, the black bear is pretty timid, Magle said. “They avoid people the vast majority of the time and are scavengers that don’t move huge distances,” he said. “This bear seems to be getting around quite a bit, but they are among the most timid and shy of the bears. That doesn’t mean approach it, but it is looking to avoid people.” Residents in the area are advised to take precautions, such as closely supervising pets and small animals when they’re outside, taking down bird feeders, and not leaving any kind of food outside.

Show proper respect for American flag On Saturday, we commemorate National Flag Day, the day the Second Continental Congress adopted the American flag. It officially was established by proclamation in 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson and again in 1949 by an Act of Congress. If you’ve never demonstrated pride in your country and support for the military by displaying the flag, Saturday is a good day to begin. But whether you’re a first-time For the record flag exhibitor or you fly one 24/7, Ultimately, the American it’s important to flag represents the freedoms know that because upon which this country was the flag represents founded and the blood of brave a living country, men and women who fought to it comes with official guidelines preserve those freedoms. for proper display and respect. This is true whether your flag is a free downloadable and printable coloring page for the kids or a silk antique. Guidelines from the flag code include: • Generally, where buildings and stationary flagstaffs are concerned, one only flies a flag from sunrise to sunset. • Illuminate your flag at night if you plan to fly it round the clock. • In bad weather, fly only flags made of allweather material. • Don’t drape your flag over the hood, top, sides or back of your vehicle. • Other flags and pennants should not fly above, at the same level or to the right of the American flag. • The flag must never touch the ground. • Flags should not be worn as clothes, costumes or other apparel; treated negligently; used for advertising; or serve double-duty as bedspreads or food containers. Eating your bratwurst from a paper plate with an American flag design is not the best way to show your patriotism. • Storing your flag: Balling it up and tossing it in a corner or stuffing it inside a box won’t do. Properly fold your flag before putting it away. The American Legion gives illustrated, step-by-step instructions at www.legion.org/ flag/folding. Or ask a Boy Scout to demonstrate it for you. He’ll be thrilled that you asked. • When a flag becomes too tattered or soiled for use, throwing it away in the garbage can is a no-no. Call an American Legion. Members will perform an unserviceable flag ceremony to give your flag a dignified ending. If you dispose of the flag yourself, you must burn it. Ultimately, the American Flag represents the freedoms upon which this country was founded and the blood of brave men and women who fought to preserve those freedoms. Please remember to treat it as such. For more federal regulations on the American flag, visit www. usflag.org/uscode36.html.
Not much confidence Unsure of Obamacare’s fiscal toll on the nation? You’re in good company – the nation’s top budgetary scorekeeper doesn’t know either. The Congressional Budget Office, which four years ago said Obamacare would reduce the deficit by $120 billion over 10 years, now says measuring the law’s fiscal impact is impossible because of all the changes. “Provisions of the Affordable Care Act significantly modified existing federal programs and made changes to the Internal Revenue Code,” the office wrote in a little-noticed footnote from April. “Isolating the incremental effects of those provisions on previously existing programs and revenues four years after enactment is not possible.” This is Congress’ own budget adviser giving the verbal equivalent of a shoulder shrug to the central question facing the most sweeping legislation in a generation. So it’s official: The experts are unsure whether Obamacare – the largest expansion of government-subsidized health care – will reduce or increase the national debt. We’re not experts, but if we were forced to wager, we know exactly where we would place our bet. The CBO revelation hardly instills confidence in a horribly flawed health care law that is supposed to be President Obama’s crowning achievement. If the CBO can’t figure out which direction this labyrinth law is headed, where are Americans worried about the nation’s fiscal health supposed to turn for guidance? To the Democratic policy wonks and lobbyists who helped draft this abomination in secret? To the Democratic lawmakers who rammed the law through Congress so we could “find out what’s in it”? To the Democratic president who told us that if we liked our existing doctors and health insurance, we could keep them? Sorry. We’ll take a rain check on that. The Augusta (Georgia) Chronicle
IT’S YOUR WRITE Don’t lump in Franks To the Editor: I agree with your June 3 editorial’s negative assessment of the Illinois Legislature for passing an unbalanced budget. However, you incorrectly lumped all legislators together. State Rep. Jack Franks led the opposition to the budget, and, for the 11th straight year, voted against it. He proposed almost a billion dollars in budget fixes that would have helped balance the budget. Franks, along with Republican State Treasurer candidate Tom Cross, offered a bipartisan, balanced budget. This is even more extraordinary considering that Rep. Cross was the house minority leader for 10 years and is the Republican candidate for treasurer. Franks oftentimes has been the lone legislator willing to fight the status quo on behalf of taxpayers. Besides his principled leadership on the budget, he also passed significant legislation to reduce the size of government. Franks is one of the few who understands that the citizens deserve more accountable, transparent, efficient government, and is willing

Who to chose? To the Editor: We are in the middle of a heated election for Illinois governor – the two primary contenders are Gov. Pat Quinn (Democrat) and Bruce Rauner (Republican). Let us look at this as if you were an investor. With whom would you place your money? Rauner and his companies made billions for themselves and their investors. Rauner does not force anyone to give him money to invest or cover his mistakes, etc. Quinn and his departments (companies) lost billions in taxpayer dollars. They take your money directly out of your check. Now, they want you again to pay for their mistakes and broken promises. All of this, and the state still has the worst credit rating of all the states. Review the latest Illinois budget. It does not even comply with the state’s Constitutional requirement to be balanced; look at the details. What they did was a one-time

sweeping of accounts to force a balanced budget, and they are counting on extending the temporary income tax after the election. Remember, look at this like an investor. Frank Musial McHenry
Editorial on the mark To the Editor: Your recent editorial touting the value of nuclear energy in Illinois hit the bull’s-eye. Human activity effects our environment. While the debate rages on about the extent of that impact, we can take steps to lessen our production of emissions that effect public health today and degrade our ecosystems in the long run.

Nuclear power generates a huge volume of energy vital for industry and economic growth. It does so without any carbon emissions. And while great alternatives such as wind and solar continue to mature, they cannot meet our demand for consistent base load power today. The Illinois Clean Energy Coalition produced a study this year showing that nuclear power prevented 92 million tons of carbon dioxide pollution in Illinois in only one year (www.ilcleanenergy.org). We can continue to reduce pollution, power our economy, support jobs, and maintain a safe, reliable electricity supply with the help of nuclear power. Doug O’Brien Illinois Clean Energy Coalition
Obama’s new coal rules aren’t democratic Republicans are calling President Barack Obama’s new coal-plant regulations a “power grab.” The truth is more complicated, and ominous, than that. This isn’t a case where the executive branch simply has gone beyond its authority. It’s a case where officials in all three branches of government have found a way to achieve their policy goals while shielding themselves from accountability. Congress sends bills to the president and the president signs them: That’s how major policy changes are supposed to work. But Congress never has passed large-scale regulations to combat global warming. It never has even voted to authorize such regulations. In 2007, though, the Supreme Court pretended that Congress had done so. Lawmakers had voted to fight climate change without realizing it, when they enacted the Clean Air Act. So ruled the four liberal justices on the bench at the time, plus Justice Anthony Kennedy. The Clean Air Act, initially written in 1970 and last significantly amended in 1990, was intended to deal with traditional air pollution, the kind that clogs your lungs and clouds your view – not with the possibility that chemicals emitted into the air might affect the entire globe through their effect on the upper
VIEWS Ramesh Ponnuru reaches of the atmosphere. Justice John Paul Stevens, writing for the court, got around that problem by holding that Congress had “carefully” declined to define “air” to exclude those upper reaches. A vast regulatory apparatus now is being built on Stevens’ inference. One set of regulations is before the Supreme Court, and it shows how hard it is to fight climate change through the Clean Air Act. To treat greenhouse gases as a conventional air pollutant, the Environmental Protection Agency was required to impose stringent rules on anything that emitted more than 100 to 250 tons of it a year. The EPA decided that this wouldn’t be “feasible” and set new thresholds at 100,000 tons a year instead. In other words, the EPA can’t apply the Clean Air Act to climate change without rewriting it. So the justices will have to decide how much rewriting they’ll let the EPA do. Even hardened lawyers steeped in the arcana of administrative law must get numbed by such details. So let’s take a step back. There are good reasons to op-
pose these regulations. Mandating cuts in carbon emissions to fight global warming is a strategy that seems highly unlikely to pass a cost-benefit test. We would be better off trying to develop technologies to reduce the risks that climate change poses. And even if cutting emissions were the best way forward, getting the global agreement that strategy would require may not be possible. Even supporters of this strategy acknowledge that the developing world may not agree to carbon caps. The case for adopting regulations ourselves is that it will make other countries more willing to reach such an agreement. That seems like a leap of faith. For these reasons and others, Congress never would have passed these regulations explicitly. In 2010, when Democrats held a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate and a large majority in the House, they failed to get a major climate-change law to the president’s desk. That legislation probably had a better cost-benefit ratio than today’s regulations do. We’re imposing expensive but basically pointless rules even though Congress never really voted for them and never would have. The president need not take full responsibility for the regulations. He always can say that he’s just following the Supreme Court’s ruling, and that, if any-
thing, he has tried to make the rules less onerous. Members of Congress can say there’s nothing they can do. Even if they oppose the regulations, as almost all Republicans and many Democrats do, they can’t stop them unless they amass a veto-proof supermajority in both houses. The justices can say that they’re just interpreting the laws on the books, and have given the executive branch plenty of flexibility to make the rules less burdensome. If you lose your job because of these regulations, how will you know who to blame, even if you follow politics closely? Which bums will you try to throw out of office? How will you go about trying to change things? We could well end up with a farreaching, slightly bonkers policy subject to no real democratic review. Even if the stakes justify these methods of making policy – and I don’t think they do – we should at least acknowledge the cost.

The Virginia Republican lost to tea party-backed economics professor David Brat Tuesday in a shocker of an election in which Brat ripped Cantor for not being tough enough on illegal immigration. Clinton said the basic argument of Brat’s campaign was

BELLEVILLE – A southern Illinois math teacher accused of videotaping girls in a high school locker room now has been charged with illegally videotaping girls in a motel bathroom. St. Clair County prosecutors on Tuesday charged Timothy Going of Fairfield with four counts related to the videotaping, alleging that misconduct took place last November in the bathroom of a Super 8 motel in Fairview Heights. The criminal complaint alleges Going video recorded girls ages 15 to 18. Going, 43, already had been charged in Wayne County with illegally placing a video camera in the girls’ locker room at Fairfield Community High School, where he worked as a teacher and track and cross country coach.

that if Americans are out of work, immigrants shouldn’t be allowed into the U.S. to take those jobs. She echoed comments from a Tuesday speech to an industry group that represents fruit and vegetable growers, saying immigrants take jobs – such as picking fruit – that Americans won’t. “The answer is not to throw out of work and deport the 11 million immigrants who are contributing already to our economy,” Clinton said. “The answer is to grow our economy and create more jobs.” Clinton has sounded increasingly like a candidate as she’s hawked her book, which was released Tuesday. She said Wednesday she supports legislation that passed the Senate that would provide a path to citizenship to people in the U.S. illegally, comments that could appeal to a growing Hispanic population as well as other immigrants.

The Slovers were convicted of murder in 2002 in the 1996 death of Michael Slover Jr.’s ex-wife, Karyn Slover. She was shot and pieces of her body were dumped in Lake Shelbyville. The Herald and Review reported DNA expert Huma Nasir testified during an April hearing that testing would be “highly likely” to develop DNA profiles from items that include duct tape used to seal bags containing Karyn Slover’s body parts, human hairs found on the tape, and a drinking straw found in her car.

Senate backs bill to improve health care for vets The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The Senate acted Wednesday to help thousands of military veterans enduring long wait times for VA medical care, as the FBI revealed it has opened a criminal investigation into a Veterans Affairs Department reeling from allegations of falsified records and inappropriate scheduling practices. The Senate bill, approved 93-3, makes it easier for veterans who have encountered delays getting initial visits to receive VA-paid treatment from local doctors instead. The measure closely resembles a bill approved unanimously Tuesday in the House, prompting optimism among lawmakers from both parties that a compromise version could be on its way soon to President Barack Obama for his signature. The White House said
Wednesday that Obama supports the Senate bill. The Senate bill would authorize about $35 billion over three years to pay for outside care for veterans, as well as hire hundreds of doctors and nurses and lease 26 new health facilities in 17 states and Puerto Rico. The House bill would spend about $620 million over the same period. The Veterans Affairs Department released an audit this week showing that more than 57,000 veterans have had to wait at least three months for initial appointments. Another 64,000 veterans who asked for appointments over the past decade never got them. “The cost of war does not end when the last shots are fired and the last missiles are launched,” said Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee. “The cost of war continues until the last veter-

Stoesser was told May 2 he needs heart surgery. an receives the care and the benefits that he or she is entitled to and has earned on the battlefield.” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who drafted the bill with Sanders, called the bill “a beginning – not an end – to the
efforts that must be taken” to address the crisis affecting veterans’ health care. While the legislation will not solve all the VA’s problems, it should “spark long overdue change – from the top down – in order to ensure
Hagel defends Bergdahl trade
Delivers aggressive testimony at Capitol Hill hearing
TROUTDALE, Ore. – A 15-yearold boy accused of killing a fellow freshman in a high school locker room was heavily armed with an assault rifle, nine magazines of ammunition, a handgun and a knife that police said Wednesday had been taken from a secured area at his family home. The details were released as police provided a more detailed account of the violence on Tuesday at Reynolds High School in Troutdale and a portrait emerged of 15-year-old suspect Jared Michael Padgett as a devout Mormon and aspir-
By LOLITA C. BALDOR and BRADLEY KLAPPER The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel delivered an aggressive defense Wednesday of the secret prisoner exchange of five Taliban detainees for a U.S. soldier, telling Congress that the risks were too great and the situation too uncertain for the administration to tell lawmakers about the plan. In a nearly five-hour Capitol Hill hearing that was at times contentious, House members accused Hagel and the White House of not trusting them enough to follow the law and fill them in on the decision to exchange Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five detainees at the U.S. facility at Guantana-
mo Bay, Cuba. An equally combative Hagel said the deal provided “the best possibility that we had to get him out, and we were concerned we might lose it.” He said officials discussed the law requiring that Congress get a 30-day notice of detainee exchanges but said the Justice Department told them that in such extreme circumstances President Barack Obama had the constitutional authority to forego the notice. The Justice Department declined to comment on advice it gave the White House. The first Obama administration official to testify about the prisoner swap, Hagel acknowledged up front that the matter could have been handled better. But he offered no apology for keeping Congress
in the dark, insisting that Qatari officials negotiating the swap between the U.S. and the Taliban made it clear that “time was not on our side.” U.S. officials said last week that intelligence suggested the captors might have killed Bergdahl if word of the swap leaked out. Calling the operation an “extraordinary situation,” Hagel said there were concerns about Bergdahl’s health and safety, the last-minute arrangements over where to pick up the soldier and persistent fears the Taliban may have been negotiating in bad faith. He said the deal only came together in the final 96 hours, and that the commandos sent to retrieve Bergdahl only knew the exact location an hour before the exchange.
our veterans are getting the care and support they expect and deserve,” said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash. Support for the bill was not unanimous. Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions and other Republicans complained that the measure was a “blank check” to spend billions of dollars with little or no way to rein it in. “Make no mistake: This is an emergency,” McCain retorted. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., supported the bill, but said “money is not the problem” at the VA. “It’s management and accountability and honesty in treating the veterans” that are needed to improve care for veterans, Coburn said. In addition to Sessions, Republican Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin voted no. Four senators did not vote: Republicans Thad Cochran of

However, no link has been discovered between Padgett and 14-year-old victim Emilio Hoffman, leaving police unsure if the shooter was targeting someone in particular or had launched a random attack.
Blackwater guards face trial in Iraq shootings WASHINGTON – Four former Blackwater Worldwide security guards went on trial Wednes-
Mississippi and Jerry Moran of Kansas, and Democrats Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Jeff Merkley of Oregon. The final tally was delayed for more than an hour as the Senate waited for Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., to vote. Graham was returning to Washington after Tuesday’s GOP primary in South Carolina and was caught up in rush hour traffic. The Senate vote came as the FBI revealed it has opened a criminal investigation into the VA. FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday that the investigation was being led by the FBI’s field office in Phoenix, which he described as the “primary locus of the original allegations” being investigated by the VA’s Office of Inspector General. “We’re working with the VA IG to follow it wherever the facts take us,” Comey told the House Judiciary Committee.
day in the killings of 14 Iraqis and the wounding of at least 18 others. Over the next few days, a jury of 12 residents from the District of Columbia will be chosen from a pool of 111 people to decide the guards’ fate. The trial is expected to last months. The judge overseeing the trial, Royce Lamberth, has been a U.S. district judge for more than 25 years and has a military background. He served as a captain in the Army’s Judge Advocate General’s Corps from 1968 to 1974, including three years at the Pentagon.

Tea party tries to build on Cantor loss
r e h c But
Candidates look to capitalize on victory in Virginia
ONUSDA THEChoice BLOCK
By BILL BARROW and THOMAS BEAUMONT The Associated Press LAUREL, Miss. – Conservative insurgents rallied Wednesday to capitalize on the downfall of their party’s House majority leader, whose loss to a tea party-backed challenger put the differences dividing Republicans back at the forefront of this year’s midterm elections. “Did you see what happened in Virginia?” Mississippi Senate candidate Chris McDaniel said to uproarious cheers at a Republican women’s luncheon in his home
county. “The people always matter. It’s your government. ... If you’ll take it again, just fight for it, you’ll win the day.” The stunning Virginia victory of economics professor David Brat over Majority Leader Eric Cantor probably isn’t a harbinger of a new tea party wave crashing over a primary season that, so far, has been mostly dominated by the Republican establishment. It came on the same day South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham dismissed six challengers in a race that, like Brat’s defeat of Cantor, included lots of talk about the nation’s immi-
gration system. “South Carolina was a referendum on whether or not you can be a conservative and solve a problem or at least try,” said Graham, a major player in the immigration debate. But the takedown of the No. 2 in the House GOP leadership is undoubtedly a sign that Republicans are far from settling the struggle between those willing to negotiate in the corridors of power in Washington and those who define conservatism by how willing politicians are to stand in opposition to President Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats.

Militants wrest control of Tikrit, Iraq
NEWS BRIEFS Ukraine rejects Putin’s offer of gas discounts MOSCOW – Russia on Wednesday offered to restore the discounted gas price it granted Ukraine under the ousted pro-Russian president, but Ukraine demanded an even better deal and called for arbitration to settle the dispute. Speaking in Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Russia was offering the discount as a “partnership deal.” Russia’s energy minister, Alexander Novak, specified the price offered as $385 per 1,000 cubic meters of gas. Russia and Ukraine have been locked for months in a dispute over the price of Russian gas supplies and Ukraine’s debt for previous deliveries. Moscow has threatened to turn off the tap if Ukraine fails to settle the multibillion-dollar debt, but has repeatedly pushed back the deadline after Ukraine paid off part of the sum. European Union-brokered talks between the two countries in Brussels on Wednesday failed to reach a compromise over the price.
The ASSOCIATED PRESS BAGHDAD – Al-Qaida-inspired militants pushed deeper into Iraq’s Sunni heartland Wednesday, swiftly conquering Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit as soldiers and security forces abandoned their posts and yielded ground once controlled by U.S. forces. The advance into former insurgent strongholds that had largely been calm before the Americans withdrew less than three years ago is spreading fear that Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, struggling to hold onto power after indecisive elections, will be unable to stop the Islamic militants as they press closer to Baghdad. Fighters from the Islamic
State of Iraq and the Levant militant group took control Tuesday of much of Iraq’s second-largest city, Mosul, sending an estimated half a million people fleeing from their homes. As in Tikrit, the Sunni militants were able to move in after police and military forces melted away after relatively brief clashes. The group, which has seized wide swaths of territory, aims to create an Islamic emirate spanning both sides of the Iraq-Syria border. The capture of Mosul – along with the fall of Tikrit and the militants’ earlier seizure of the western city of Fallujah – have undone hardfought gains against insurgents in the years following
the 2003 invasion by U.S.-led forces. The White House said the security situation has deteriorated over the past 24 hours and that the United States was “deeply concerned” about ISIL’s continued aggression. There were no reliable Nouri estimates of al-Maliki casualties or the number of insurgents involved, though several hundred gunmen were in Tikrit and more were fighting on the outskirts, said Mizhar Fleih, the deputy head of the municipal council of nearby Samar-
Icon of 2011 uprising in Egypt jailed for 15 years CAIRO – A court has convicted a prominent activist from Egypt’s 2011 uprising for demonstrating without permit and assaulting a policeman, sentencing him to 15 years in prison. The sentence against Alaa Abdel-Fattah is by far the toughest against any of the liberal, pro-democracy activists behind the 18-day uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak’s 29-year regime. It is also the first conviction of a prominent activist since former army chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi took office as president on Sunday.

OSLO, Norway – In early March, a ship the size of a large passenger ferry left a Romanian wharf, glided through the narrow strait that separates Europe from Asia and plotted a course toward Scandinavia. After a two-year refitting, the $250 million ship will begin its mission: to snoop on Russia’s activities in the Arctic. “There is a demand from our political leadership to describe what is going on in this region,” said Norway’s military intelligence chief, Lt. Gen. Kjell Grandhagen. As climate change eats away at the sea ice covering the North Pole, Arctic nations – the U.S., Canada, the Nordic countries and Russia – are fishing for secrets in spy games echoing Cold War rivalries. The military dimension remains important but this time there’s an economic aspect, too: getting a leg up in the competition for potential oil and gas resources, along with new shipping lanes and fishing waters. Summer sea ice reached a record low in 2012 and projections suggest it could disappear completely this century. New areas of open
water already have allowed more shipping through the Northern Sea Route north of Russia. The melt is also opening a new energy frontier – the Arctic is believed to hold 13 percent of the world’s undiscovered oil and 30 percent of its untapped gas. The most accessible resources lie within national boundaries and are undisputed. Security analysts say the risk of conflict lies further ahead, if and when the ice melts enough to uncover resources in areas where ownership is unclear. The U.S., Canada, Denmark, Norway and Russia are expected to have overlapping claims. Critics say the U.S. lags in the race. A panel of retired generals found despite a slew of planning documents, the Coast Guard has only one fully ready icebreaker and the U.S. Navy has few ice-hardened vessels that can operate in the Arctic, other than nuclear submarines. “The geopolitical situation is ever more nuanced and complex. The risk of maritime events, or even unpredictable flashpoints, endemic to national security is growing,” retired Admiral Frank Bowman warned in the report.

European taxis protest transport tech companies LONDON – Roads snarled in London, Paris and several other major European cities Wednesday as taxi drivers and train workers protested new technology they say endangers passengers and gives upstart enterprises an unfair advantage. Drivers of London’s famed black cabs refused to pick up fares and drove at a snail’s pace through Trafalgar Square – creating nightmarish gridlock – and travelers in France were hobbled not only by the taxi slowdown but also by strikes on the national train network and commuter lines. Madrid, Barcelona and Berlin were hit, too.

The militants gained entry to the Turkish consulate in Mosul and held captive 48 people, including diplomats, police, consulate employees and three children, according to an official in the office of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Turkish officials believe the hostages are safe, he said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment to reporters on the sensitive issue.

Out of reach Many seek new homes near cities but are priced out By JOSH BOAK The Associated Press WASHINGTON – City living has been a blessing for Tim Nelson. The Phoenix lawyer moved downtown a few months ago into a new $389,000 home with a warehouse-style floor plan, a Jacuzzi tub and kitchen counters made of Caesarstone quartz. His favorite coffee spot is three blocks away. When the Arizona Diamondbacks play on Friday nights, he can watch postgame fireworks from his deck. “I like the views,” said Nelson, 50. “My commute is almost nonexistent.” Nelson has plenty of company. Americans increasingly say they prefer to live near the centers of cities and towns, where commutes are typically shorter and culture, restaurants and entertainment close by. It marks a shift away from the yearning for open suburban space that drove U.S. home construction for decades. But it carries a costly trade-off: Land in many cities has surged in price. And fewer Americans can now afford newly built homes in the walkable neighborhoods they desire. The average price of a newly built home nationwide has reached $320,100 – a 20.5 percent jump since 2012 began. That puts a typical new home out of reach for two-thirds of Americans, according to government data. Yet many builders have made a calculated bet: Better to sell fewer new homes at higher prices than build more and charge less. Their calculation is partly a consequence of the growing wealth gap in the United States. Average inflation-adjusted income has declined 9 percent for the bottom 40 percent of households since 2007, while incomes for the top 5 percent exceed where

Buyers have historically paid about 15 percent more for a new home than for an existing one, a premium that’s reached 40 percent today, according to the real estate data firm Zillow. An average new home costs about six times the median U.S. household income. Historically, Americans have bought homes worth about three times their income. The high prices and sparse construction are no help for a still-subpar U.S. economy. With new-home sales well below their historical average, construction firms need fewer workers. The economy remains 1.49 million construction jobs shy of its total in December 2007, when the Great Recession began. After 60 years of migrating to car-dominated suburbs, polls show
more Americans want out of long commutes in favor of neighborhoods where jobs and stores are nearby. Stuck with pay that’s barely budging, many face a tough choice: Keep renting. Pile up huge mortgage debt to buy a home near their job. Or buy a cheaper home that requires a lengthy commute. “Middle-class Americans are [being] squeezed out,” said John McIlwain, a senior fellow at the Urban Land Institute. Low mortgage rates have eased some of the pain from rising prices. But the desire to live near town centers on costlier land could depress home ownership rates to as low as 60 percent, McIlwain estimates. That would be down from 65 percent today and 69 percent during the housing bubble.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – To many, Tennessee means whiskey. But inside the state, the question is: What does Tennessee whiskey mean? A battle between two worldwide liquor companies – owners of rival brands Jack Daniel’s and smaller rival George Dickel – is being waged over who has the right to label their drink as following authentic Tennessee style. It’s among the epicurean battles being waged around the world over what food and drink should carry special status as local and unique. London-based liquor conglomerate Diageo PLC opened a heated legislative fight earlier this year seeking to overturn the state’s newly established legal definition for Tennessee whiskey that has been championed by Jack Daniel’s, which is owned by Louisville, Kentucky-based BrownForman Corp. Among the new rules are requirements that whiskey must be aged in new, charred oak barrels in Tennessee and filtered through maple charcoal prior to aging. Dickel’s owners say they conform
WASHINGTON – Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said Wednesday that the economy should grow at much stronger rates the rest of this year as the country overcomes the impact of a harsh winter. But Lew said millions of Americans continue to struggle as unemployment remains too high and economic growth is too slow. “Evidence continues to mount that our economy is gaining traction,” Lew said in a speech to the Economic Club of New York. “Nevertheless, we cannot escape the fact that millions of Americans continue to struggle, and their pain reminds us that our work is not finished. ... For too many families this hardly feels like a recovery.” In his remarks, which were distributed in Washington, Lew called for actions by the government and the private sector to boost hiring of the long-term unemployed and increase investment in productivity-enhancing equipment and critical infrastructure projects such as roads, railways and ports. Lew said the country also needed a stronger commitment to education in the areas of science, math and engineering to make sure students have the skills they need to compete in the new economy. Lew said that from 1948 to 2007, the economy grew at average annual rates of 3.4 percent a year. But he said the Congressional Budget Office is now projecting that after the economy returns to full employment, economic growth will only average about 2.1 percent a year – just two-thirds of the average right after World War II.

Corn Soybeans Oats Wheat
DES MOINES, Iowa – The nation’s wheat crop is smaller than earlier was predicted due to drought, but corn and soybean crop expectations have changed little in the last month, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said Wednesday. Agency reports show farmers producing 1.38 billion bushels of winter wheat, down 2 percent from a month ago and 10 percent from last year. Hard red winter wheat, the type often used to make bread, is down 3 percent from last month’s estimate to 720 million bushels. “Severe drought conditions in the Southern Plains had a dramatic impact on the winter wheat crop, with poor fields in Oklahoma and Texas being baled for hay or otherwise abandoned,” the USDA said in its crop production report. “Late-month precipitation was beneficial to this area but likely too late to revive drought-stricken wheat.” Kansas also has been hard hit by drought, and the government now estimates the Kansas crop at 243.6 million bushels, down from 260.4 million bushels forecast a month ago.
Morris Building & Loan to host open house

MORRIS – Morris Building & Loan, a division of Harvard Savings Bank, will host an open house from 1 to 3 p.m. June 13 to celebrate the retirement of Accounting Manager Sandra Bednarik. Refreshments will be served at the open house, which is open to community members, family and friends. Bednarik has worked in the accounting department for Morris Building and Loan since August 1999. She “will be missed by all,” Branch Manager Kimberly Brown said in news release.

Homebuilders changing Brazil, other markets are no longer ‘Fragile Five’ to meet new demands By STEVE ROTHWELL The Associated Press
• HOMES Continued from page 5 About 40 percent of Americans still live in a suburb “where most people drive to most places,” according to a new poll by the American Planning Association, a trade group for community planners. But just 7 percent say they hope to stay in car-dominated neighborhoods. Those findings mesh with a March report on the preferences of millennials by Nielsen Holdings. The construction business thrived for decades by bulldozing cheap farmland into suburban networks of streets and houses. But as farmland grew costlier, land prices in cities and towns with attractive amenities soared, said Christopher Leinberger, a professor at George Washington University and an industry strategist. Homebuilder Toll Brothers spent $24 million in 2012 to buy two-thirds of an acre near Nationals Park in Washington. That’s equal to roughly $830 a square foot, compared with $5 a square foot before the ballpark existed, Leinberger said. At the Walnut Hill Townhomes in Chattanooga, prices start at $610,000. The figure reflects a revival of that industrial city. A pedestrian bridge spans the river, carrying locals to gastropubs, gourmet tacos and a waterfront park. Dale Mabee, who’s building the homes, said his material and land costs meant prices had to be $243 a square foot, nearly three times the average in the metro area. “It’s almost a necessity to build at a higher price point to make the numbers work,” Mabee said. Among the buyers was Spencer McCallie, a 77-year old former school headmaster. McCallie initially retired to a lakeside cabin about 30 miles outside the city. But its quiet pleasures were undercut by long drives downtown for symphony concerts and Rotary Club meetings. “We didn’t want to have to come in 28 miles because we knew we’d have to come home late at night,” McCallie said.
The shift in tastes is among factors that are eroding home affordability despite still-low mortgage rates. Among other factors: tighter lending rules and difficulty producing down payments. All of which helps explain why construction has yet to rebound with vigor. Just 433,000 new homes were sold on an annualized basis in April. Over the previous halfcentury – when the United States had a smaller population – annual sales had averaged 660,000. Builders noted in recent earnings calls the higher prices and the decline in construction. Richard Dugas, CEO of PulteGroup, said building entry-level homes isn’t profitable enough anymore. Builder D.R. Horton says escalating prices have left firsttime buyers “underserved.” It’s introduced a low-cost division with homes priced as low as $120,000, targeted in part at millennial buyers but located at the edges of suburbia where land is cheaper. For those able to live downtown, the tight supply of new homes has forced them to act fast. Crews broke ground last month on a 47-rowhome luxury development in Chicago. Every apartment – starting at $562,900 – sold before digging began. The rooftop decks survey the city skyline. Buyers are waiting 12 to 16 months for construction to finish before moving in, said Heather Gustafson of CMK Realty. The homes are built in the Cabrini-Green area, once occupied by a housing project notorious for gang violence. The city began to demolish the project in 1995 and resettle residents, clearing prime real estate just a 20-minute walk from the office towers and trendy restaurants of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. Adam Kriticos, a mortgage broker, bought the last available home at the development, known as Basecamp River North. He had less than four days to make an offer after touring a model home. That didn’t faze him. “It’s not like we’re overpaying for where the market is now,” he said.
Jack Daniel’s argues laws will keep inferior products at bay • WHISKEY Continued from page 5 Some advocates feared a successful challenge by Dickel of the storage statute could give way to a legal challenge of the overall Tennessee whiskey law. On Tuesday in a separate but related case, the Diageo subsidiary George Dickel came out on top when state attorneys in Nashville abruptly dropped a complaint that Dickel had violated a state statute prohibiting the aging of Tennessee-made whiskey outside its boundaries. Dickel had challenged the statute in federal court, claiming it violated laws on free interstate commerce. The calm is likely to be short-lived, however. State lawmakers this summer are expected to return to the struggle of crafting the legal definition of Tennessee whiskey, whose history and lore is entwined in the state’s identity as much as lobsters in Maine and crab cakes in Maryland. The two distilleries located just 15 miles apart in southern Tennessee are hardly equals in the marketplace, with Jack Daniel’s outselling Dickel by a ratio of 88 cases to one. Jack Daniel’s argues that the state laws governing which products can be labeled Tennessee whiskey will protect the category against low-quality knockoffs. They say Diageo’s motivation is to undercut Jack Daniel’s global growth while its own flagship brand, Johnnie Walker scotch, stagnates. Dickel’s owners say they conform with the traditional methods laid out in the state law, but argue that new distillers in the state shouldn’t be
bound by state law to follow the old ways. Some observers believe a successful challenge of the storage statute could give way to a legal challenge of the overall Tennessee whiskey law. Adam Levy, a blogger on liquor trends and organizer of spirits competitions, said the production and storage requirements aren’t arbitrary. “If you want to be considered a Tennessee whiskey, then you have to make it in Tennessee and store it in Tennessee,” he said. “It is fundamental to what the result is.” The fight over labels on whiskey bottles comes amid a global drive to seek labeling protections by a smorgasbord of regional foods such as cheeses, hams and wines. While the U.S. has resisted claims to items like Parmesan and Feta cheeses by their Italian and Greek countries of origin, wine makers have succeeded in introducing standards for products labeled for regions such as California’s Napa Valley. “In America, everything is up in the air, and new traditions are invented all the time,” said Ken Albala, a history professor and director of food studies at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. “And so I think we’re edging toward some sort of appellation system here, and whiskey would make perfect sense.” Albala said the boom in American whiskeys has led to quality concerns. “Distillers in every state are jumping on the whiskey bandwagon now, and the companies are worrying that they need to be able to distinguish their product and keep competitors out,” he said.
NEW YORK – Soccer fans will focus on Brazil and the start of the World Cup Thursday, but investors have been entranced by that nation’s stock market for months. Brazil has company. From Sao Paulo to Mumbai, investors are regaining their faith in emerging markets this year. It’s a big shift from 2013, when investment in those markets dried up because of worries about their slowing economic growth. It got so tough that five big developing markets – Brazil, South Africa, India, Indonesia and Turkey – were dubbed the “Fragile Five” by analysts at Morgan Stanley. Now those countries are much more appealing to investors. Some have taken actions to strengthen their economies. Others have gone through political changes that have bolstered investor
confidence. At the same time, slower growth in the U.S. has made investing overseas more alluring. “These countries have done some homework to reduce their fragilities,” said Jorge Mariscal, chief investment officer for emerging markets at UBS Wealth Management. “They have helped themselves a bit.” The “Fragile Five” raised interest rates to draw investors’ cash back into their countries. India, for example, lifted its rate from 7.25 percent in September to 8 percent in March; Brazil hiked rates from 7.5 percent in May of last year to their current level of 11 percent. Higher interest rates are appealing to investors in the U.S., where the Federal Reserve has held its benchmark lending rate at close to zero for more than five years, and where bond yields remain low. In India, the government also has raised duties on gold.
The metal is India’s secondbiggest import behind oil, and purchases have soared in recent years as incomes have risen there. The increased buying has sped up the flow of money out of the country, and weakened its currency. Politics also are playing a role. Last month, Narendra Modi and the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party notched the most decisive Indian election victory in three decades. Modi marketed himself as a leader capable of shaking the nation from its economic slumber, and his clear win should allow him to reform the economy. In Brazil, stocks have rallied after polls were released that showed opponents of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff gaining enough ground to have a chance of forcing a runoff in elections scheduled for October. Her opponents, Aecio Neves and Eduardo Campos, are believed to favor less government involvement
in the economy. Developing economies also should benefit as global growth, led by an improving U.S. economy, begins to pick up later in the year, said Mauro Ratto, head of emerging markets at Pioneer Investments, a fund manager. The shifts are reflected in the financial markets. Gains in the U.S. stock market over the past months are smaller than those in emerging markets. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index has climbed 12 percent since closing at its year low Feb. 3. The MSCI India, a broad index of Indian stocks, has surged 30 percent over the same period. Turkish stocks have jumped 44 percent, and Brazilian stocks are up 26 percent. Emerging markets have benefited from the Fed’s easymoney policies. Those policies, with their low interest rates, have prompted investors to hunt for higher rates of return overseas.

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

PRAIRIE RIDGE BASEBALL
Buresch hitting ‘ugly’ for Wolves By JOEY KAUFMAN firstname.lastname@example.org CRYSTAL LAKE – Glen Pecoraro admits he almost cut Kyle Buresch. This was, of course, before the season. Buresch had not played baseball since his freshman season, so he faced tough odds to make it off Pecoraro’s initial cut list and crack the roster entering tryouts. “Kyle Buresch was an afterthought to me,” the Wolves’ coach said before a practice Tuesday afternoon. By now, Buresch is no longer an afterthought. The senior left fielder leads the team this season in hitting with a .296 batting average and has keyed Prairie Ridge to only its second Class 4A state tournament berth in school history. The Wolves (2416) face Providence (26-14) in the semifinals at 3 p.m. Friday at Silver Cross Field in Joliet. Buresch has 32 hits and 27 RBIs but had never played at the varsity level before this season, primarily concentrating on hockey as the captain and top-
line center for Prairie Ridge’s club team. Next season, he’ll lace up his skates for the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, a Division III program in the southwest part of the state. Oddly enough, it’s his time on the ice, he said, that’s prepped him for his string of success on the diamond this spring. “I think it gives me more of a competitive edge, from going to something so fast to something as slow as baseball,” Buresch said. “But it’s a good change of speed. It just gets me motivated to play.” In the Wolves’ 9-6 supersectional victory over Mundelein on Monday night, Buresch, who hits fifth in the lineup, went 2 for 3 at the plate with two RBIs. “He’s a competitor,” Pecoraro said. “He’s a gamer. Kyle just rises to the occasion when something needs to be done. He was like that in hockey all these years – and even in baseball. When we needed a hit, when we needed somebody to come

MARIAN CENTRAL FOOTBALL
Bahl hopes to choose school this summer By JACOB SHEYKO email@example.com The start of football season is a couple of months away, but for Marian Central quarterback Billy Bahl, the most important decision of his football career is approaching. And as the scholarship offers continue to pile up, the decision isn’t getting any easier. After last week’s scholarship offer from Wyoming, Bahl has received offers from 14 schools, and more may be coming. “It’s been kind of stressful, but I’m happy. It’s a lot better than not being recruited by big schools,” said Bahl, who is hoping to make a decision before the start of the season, but preferably by the end of June. “I’m very excited about everything, and I’m just kind of taking everything in.” As a junior, Bahl led the area with 2,510 passing yards, 29 touchdowns and 12 interceptions as Marian Central finished with an 8-3 record and a first-round Class 5A playoff victory over Bremen. “Fundamentally, he’s a very sound quarterback, very ideal size for a quarterback as well,” Marian Central offensive coordinator Dirk Stanger said. “He’s just a very natural thrower, and he’s continuing to progress in

By CHRIS CASEY firstname.lastname@example.org After two days of the Illinois State Women’s Amateur Golf Tournament in Bloomington, Lexi Harkins, a recent Crystal Lake Central graduate, advanced to the quarterfinals Wednesday as the No. 1 seed. Harkins shot an opening-round Lexi 74 on TuesHarkins day to earn the top seed for the championship flight Round of 32 match play. On Wednesday, Harkins defeated Tiffany Wolf of Mattoon, 2 and 1, in the morning pairings. In her afternoon match in the Round of 16, Harkins defeated Hannah Luckett of Hillsboro, 1 up, to advance to Thursday’s quarterfinals. “I really didn’t have too many expectations heading in,” Harkins said. “I just wanted to play well and really just have fun.” Harkins tees off at 8 a.m. Thursday against Abigail Luchtenburg of Geneva. Taylor Ellett of Hampshire, last year’s second flight champion, won her championship flight Round of 32 match but could not advance out of the Round of 16, leaving Harkins as the only local competitor remaining.

STANLEY CUP FINAL: RANGERS 2, KINGS 1 – KINGS LEAD, 3-1
Lundqvist keeps Rangers alive Goalie’s 40 saves send series back to L.A. By BARRY WILNER The Associated Press NEW YORK – The Los Angeles Kings did everything Wednesday night except skate off with the Stanley Cup. Holding a 3-0 lead in the final over the New York Rangers, the Kings dominated play all over the Madison Square Garden ice. They simply couldn’t beat goalie Henrik Lundqvist despite a dozen or more superb opportunities, and lost Game 4, 2-1. Now it’s back to L.A. to try to close out their second NHL championship in three years. It’s not the scenario they preferred. “That’s what happens in these games,” Kings forward Marian Gaborik, a former Ranger, said after Lundqvist made 40 saves, several of them spectacular. “We’ve just got to be better next time.” That would be Friday night at Staples Center,

Minnesota senior Zach Siegmeier, a Crystal Lake Central grad, tied for fifth in the pole vault at 18 feet, ½ inch Wednesday at the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Oregon. Siegmeier advanced to the fifth progression before failing to make the 18-2½ height on three consecutive attempts. He improved on his 17-7 jump that earned him a trip to nationals. Sam Kendricks of Mississippi won the event at 18-8¼. Southern Illinois sophomore Josh Freeman, a Cary-Grove grad, finished 21st in the shot put at 59-5. Freeman failed to advance to the finals after faulting on two of his three attempts.
But following the advice of Stanger, who keeps in touch with Bahl about every other day, the 6-foot-4, 210-pound quarterback is giving every school an equal opportunity. Just last weekend, Bahl traveled to Ames, Iowa, for an Iowa State throwing camp. And he has future campus visits scheduled for Miami (Ohio) on June 15 and Rutgers in the near future. “It goes pretty fast,” Bahl said of the recruiting process. “I’m just trying to figure out which coaches are being honest with you and telling you what you actually need to hear, not what they want you to hear.”
LOS ANGELES – A trial will be held next month to determine whether Donald Sterling, who opposes his estranged wife’s planned sale of the Los Angeles Clippers, was properly removed as an administrator for the family trust that owns the team. A probate court judge Wednesday in Los Angeles denied Shelly Sterling’s urgent request to confirm her authority as sole administrator of The Sterling Family Trust so that she can unilaterally proceed with a $2 billion sale of the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. Instead, the judge agreed to an expedited hearing because of looming sales deadlines.
– Staff, wire reports
In between visiting campuses and attending throwing camps, Bahl has also hosted a few throwing sessions of his own, in which coaches from interested universities attended. Stanger, who was also in attendance, said that these sessions have done nothing but impress. “I don’t think there was one [coach] that didn’t come away extremely impressed,” he said. “In fact, there were a couple of instances where schools that had not offered him a scholarship maybe watched four or five throws and got on the phone right away with their head coach and said, ‘This kid is legit, we need to offer him.’ ” Before Bahl departs for college, which he will choose based on comfort and an opportunity to play early, Stanger is
looking to give his quarterback more offensive control under center. Which is something Stanger has no worries about. “At this point I trust him to – if we got to it – call the plays himself,” Stanger said. That trust was echoed by Bahl’s teammate and tight end, Michael Hartlieb. “He’s kind of a field general out there. He’s a guy who can read the defense. He’ll call an audible or a hot route is he needs to.” he said. “I think that will just elevate his game that much more for the next level.” But before Bahl gets to make those decisions on the field, he still has one decision to make off the field, one that doesn’t involve X’s and O’s, but one that could determine where he spends the next four years after high school.

Game 4 San Antonio at Miami, 8 p.m. Thursday, ABC nio facing the end of their title reign. “You’re always on edge in the postseason, but I don’t want to be concerned at this point,” James said. “For us, we have to make the adjustments.” The Spurs had the same lead last year after a 113-77 victory in Game 3, a start-to-finish beating that was even more thorough than Tuesday’s win. So they were taking no satisfaction in their position, and certainly not comparing it. “I don’t think about last year at all at this point,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “This is a different animal and I’m just concerned about the game tomorrow night.” The bigger concerns belong to the Heat, whose defense was also sliced up by the Spurs in the fourth quarter of Game 1. So Spoelstra gathered his team to look at the painful tape of Tuesday’s performance.

Trial to weigh fairness of Sterling’s ousting
where the Kings won the first two games of the series in overtime. And they recognize they have made things more difficult on themselves. “We’ve obviously got to be better against a desperate team and close it out,” Gaborik added. “We could have been better tonight, could have generated even more in front of their net.” That is a scary thought considering the second half of the game was played almost entirely in New York’s end. But Lundqvist was up to the challenge, outplaying counterpart Jonathan Quick for the first time in the series, even as New York was outshot 15-1 in the third period.
Wave after wave of Kings rushes either ended up with the Rangers chipping the puck out of their zone and regrouping, or Lundqvist making brilliant stops. Considering how the Kings have overcome four two-goal deficits already, when Dustin Brown scored on a breakaway to make it 2-1 midway in the second session, the fans at the Garden gulped. But L.A. couldn’t solve Lundqvist again. The Kings almost did on a scramble in the goal crease with 1:11 remaining. The puck stopped dead on the goal line behind Lundqvist, but center Derek Stepan moved it under the goalie with his glove as the fans shrieked and the officials held back blowing the whistle for a seemingly interminable time. L.A. had a similar disappointment in the first period when Anton Stralman cleared the puck off the line – after fanning on his first try.
MIAMI – LeBron James has learned an important lesson during his journey from 19-year-old rookie to two-time NBA champion: Never talk back to the coach during a film session. “Let him make his point, whether he’s right or wrong, and you live with it and move on,” James said. Especially when the coach has as much to show his players as Erik Spoelstra did to James and the Miami Heat on Wednesday. Miami’s defense didn’t offer much resistance early in Game 3 of the NBA Finals; the San Antonio Spurs played like they were on the court by themselves. San Antonio made 19 of its first 21 shots and shot a finals-record 75.8 percent in the first half of a 111-92 victory. Just like last year, Game 3 was a blowout that left the Heat facing a 2-1 deficit. Miami came back to win the series, so nobody was overreacting to what happened Tuesday, especially since the Spurs themselves don’t expect to shoot that way again. But the Heat have things to clean up before Game 4 on Thursday, or they risk going back to San Anto-
Continued from page C1 through, Kyle Buresch was always the guy to come through.” It’s his ability to hit that won over Pecoraro. In winter tryouts, Buresch was the best hitter that week, according to Pecoraro, and especially so during a simulation pitchers-hitters game. “He was a no-brainer to keep,” Pecoraro said, “because of how good he was that week.” The plan was to stash him out in left, a way to minimize fielding responsibilities and let him focus on his hitting. And that has paid off thus far. Facing the Wolves’ stout pitching rotation headlined by aces Austin Covers and Ben Cilano throughout the year has helped him get up to speed.
“Just seeing pitches in batting practice helped me,” he said. “Everything just came naturally, like fielding. But hitting was the hardest part.” And he’s been hitting, despite a sort of unorthodox approach. “A lot of the things you wouldn’t necessarily teach a young hitter to do, he has a tendency to do,” Pecoraro said. “He’ll swing and miss, you’ll go, ‘That’s ugly.’ But then, next pitch, he’ll make an adjustment, and bam, he’ll put a barrel on it. We call it getting ugly. You’ll look ugly on one pitch, and then next pitch, square it up.” Added Buresch, grinning: “Everyone says it’s ugly. But I just try to hit the ball. See ball, hit ball.” He’s done that plenty this year.

Father’s Day, fishing perfect match
H. Rick Bamman – email@example.com
The Bears’ Jeremiah Ratliff (left) and Kyle Long talk after a workout Wednesday in Lake Forest.
‘Hungry’ Ratliff bent on helping By ARTHUR ARKUSH firstname.lastname@example.org The best-case scenario for the Bears with defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff, who returned to Chicago in March on a twoyear deal after impressing in a five-game audition to end 2013, is that they get the disruptive presence in the middle of their defense that went to four Pro Bowls with the Cowboys. The worst-case scenario for Ratliff, who at 32 has been slowed by injuries the past two seasons, is that he’s a strong mentor for rookie defensive tackles Ego Ferguson and Will Sutton. After speaking publicly for the first time this offseason Wednesday at the Bears’ third and final organized team activities open to the media, Ratliff has every intention of trying to fulfill both scenarios for the Bears in 2014. “I feel good, I feel stronger – I’m ready to go,” Ratliff said. “Along with all the pain, aggravation and even some humiliation, came rest. It allowed me to step back and see the game.
After the time off, I’m pretty eager and hungry. It’s been a long road to get back to this point, and I’m just thankful to be a part of it with this organization.” Ratliff, released in October by the Cowboys and signed by the Bears two weeks later, wasn’t interested in talking about his unceremonious departure from Dallas. He was cut after missing a combined 14 games in 2012 and 2013 and not seeing eye-to-eye with the team over injuries. But now one of the elder statesman of the Bears’ revamped defensive line, he was clearly excited about the opportunity to share some of the wisdom with Ferguson and Sutton that he picked up from some of his former Cowboys teammates. “I’ll tell you something,” said Ratliff, “that Jason Ferguson, La’roi Glover, Greg Ellis, all those guys, told me when I first came in as a rookie. They told me, ‘It’s your job to turn around and help the next man. And when you leave, you leave this organization in good hands.’ And that is something I have never forgotten.”
Father’s Day and fishing – they certainly go together, don’t they? From the gifts to the actual act of going fishing, this Sunday will show the strong connection. Kids love getting good old Dad fishing-related gifts. Don’t all fathers possess hats and T-shirts plastered with corny saying that the kids thought were incredibly cool when they picked them off the shelves at the store? Don’t the fathers only wear them when they are actually in the company of the kids? How could you break a child’s heart by not wearing the present he gave you, no matter how unsightly it really is. A lot of dads pick a fishing excursion as the thing they’d like to do most on Father’s Day. It’s not a trip to northwest Ontario. It’s usually just a relaxing outing to a nearby lake or pond. It’s a day to teach the kids how to fish or fish better and show off your expertise. A family picnic to a preserve for relaxing, fishing, eating and plenty of picture taking is a perfect day. When it gets right down to it, Father’s Day is not about the fathers, it is all about the children. At least, I think that is the way it should be. My dad taught me how to fish. I was totally enthralled with it from Day 1. We used to go on vacation to White Sand Lake in Wisconsin’s Northwoods for two weeks in July every year. There was plenty to do at the resort we stayed at, but all my dad enjoyed doing was fishing, and I the same. My dad woke up and hit the water at first sun and would come back and pick me up after breakfast. We’d fish till noon. My dad stayed in and relaxed in the hot afternoons while I would go out again alone. We’d have dinner and my dad and I would go out again after dinner until dusk. We’d come in and he’d go back out with my mother to fish for night walleyes until close to midnight. My dad actually rented a second boat for us and bought me my own used Evinrude 3½-horsepower motor. I could go out alone any time that I wanted to. This first happened when I turned 10. Can you imagine a 10-year-old piloting his own motorboat? That would be considered child abuse today. I just got rid of that old Evinrude last summer. When I turned 13, my father bought a 20-horse and gave me his 10-horse. I felt like a hydroplane pilot with all that power in back of me. My dad and I caught a lot of fish and had a lot of great father/son conversations in the boat. We caught many memorable fish. Well. To be honest, he caught most of them. My dad was a quiet guy for the most

OUTDOORS Steve Sarley part, but could display a mercurial temper occasionally. I remember him hooking up with a smallmouth bass, probably the biggest he had ever encountered. He set the hook and began to play the fish. The last thing he told me before we left the dock was to make sure that I took our net with us. As the fish neared the boat, my dad hollered, “Get the net! Get the net!” Guess what? Little Steve had left it on the dock. That was the first time my ears ever heard my father say the word that caused Ralphie to have to eat Lifebuoy in the movie “A Christmas Story.” Funny what you can remember, isn’t it? My dad suffered from a respiratory disorder his whole adult life. Funny, he never touched a cigarette or cigar. He was unable to play ball with me or many other activities that robbed him of precious oxygen. Fishing was one of the few things we could do together, and we cherished the time. My dad died when I was 17, just a week before high school graduation. I miss him. I wish he was still here to fish with me and better yet, to fish with my kids. I’d love to see his face when he unwrapped his Father’s Day present and got a look at the hat they bought him. You know, the hat with the corny saying on it.
NOTES Northern Illinois fishing report: Dave Kranz from Dave’s Bait, Tackle and Taxidermy in Crystal Lake reports: “Walleyes on the Fox Chain continue to hit minnows, leeches and crawlers on a 1/8-oz. jig head. You should fish the current areas and areas with a hard bottom. I was able to fish the Madison Chain last Sunday doing the upper Midwest Bass Challenge Tournament. Most fish were post-spawn. We found fish in the weeds and used plastics like Senkos and craws to finish in second place. Three Oaks fish are in summer patterns, so fish in 10 to 20-feet and use a drop shot rig or a Defender jig for good bass action. Take red worms or wax worms for bait to the Hollows Conservation Area to catch bluegills. This is a great place to take kids fishing!” Call 815-4552040 for an updated report. Honest John from C.J.

Try crankbaits, rubber worms or nightcrawlers. Look for bluegills in the shallow channels. The Spring Lake channels and the channel toward Bluff Lake are good. Catfish in the channels are taking nightcrawlers, stink bait, shrimp or large fathead minnows. Walleye action is good, drifting the sandbar in Lake Marie. Also try the south shore of Petite, the Route 12 Bridge and Spring Lake Bridge for some nice ones. Large fathead minnows, nightcrawlers or leeches are the best baits.” As of Wednesday, the Upper and Lower Fox River and the Fox Chain all were deemed to be open for boating by the Fox Waterway Agency.

Lake Michigan fishing report: “The fish moved offshore this past week. Cohoes, kings, steelhead, and lake trout were being caught from 130 to 240 feet of water. Most of the fish were in the top 100 feet of the water column. Lots of Coho salmon and steelheads were caught in the top 10 feet of water. OO orange dodgers with Peanut flies tied 16 inches behind them accounted for most of them, while chrome O dodgers with Howie Super Frog flies tied 24 inches behind was good for lakers and kings fished deeper.” This report is provided by Captain Bob Rossa of Migrator Charters based out of Northpoint Marina – ALakeMichiganCharter.com.

WORLD CUP: USA
Klinsmann: Title unrealistic for U.S. Players take coach’s comments as challenge By RONALD BLUM The Associated Press SAO PAULO – American fans decked out in red, white and blue watched their team’s lone public training session in Brazil, cheering and seeking autographs. Jurgen Klinsmann maintains they shouldn’t expect the U.S. to lift soccer’s top trophy for the first time July 13, even if that stance upsets some. “I think for us now, talking about winning a World Cup is just not realistic,” the American coach said Wednesday during his first news conference in Brazil before the tournament. “First, we’ve got to make it through the group. So let’s stay with our feet on the ground and say let’s get that group first done, and then the sky is the limit.” The Americans open Monday against Ghana, the team that eliminated them from the past two World Cups, then play No. 4 Portugal and FIFA Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo. They close group play against threetime champion Germany, the world’s second-ranked team. Odds makers peg the U.S. chances of winning the title at 250-1, up from 60-1 before December’s draw. “I’ll be at the Natal game. I’ll be in Manaus. And I’ll also be in Recife – and, hopefully, the next stage,” Liliana Ayalde, the U.S. ambassador to Brazil, said after the almost two-hour training session. Klinsmann won the 1990 World Cup as a player for West Germany and coached Germany to the 2006 semifinals. He caused a stir last weekend when he was quoted by The New
York Times Magazine as saying in a December interview “we cannot win this World Cup, because we are not at that level yet.” Klinsmann, who has lived in Orange County, California, for most of the past 16 years, was accused by some commentators of having an un-American mentality. “If it’s now American or not American, I don’t know,” he said. “You can correct me however you want.” Mix Diskerud, the 23-year-old midfielder with a Norwegian father and Arizonan mother, took Klinsmann’s remarks as a challenge. “That’s an opportunity for us to prove him wrong,” he said. Midfielder Alejandro Bedoya thought it was a meaningless debate. “The media, when they get a chance to get a hold of anything, they’ll get it going,” he said. “He’s been optimistic with us since Day 1, and there’s nothing short of confidence in him and his belief in us.” Only eight nations have won the World Cup, all from Europe and South America. Brazil has a record five titles, followed by Italy (four), Germany (three), Argentina and Uruguay (two each), and England, France and Spain (one apiece). “Look, we haven’t won a World Cup before, so you can’t go into the World Cup saying, ‘Oh, we have to do what we’ve done in the past,’ ” forward Jozy Altidore said. “You come here obviously with that dream in the back of your mind. Let’s not be silly. At the same time you have to be realistic and understand AP photo there are some teams that maybe are a bit more favored than we are obviously to win U.S. coach Juergen Klinsmann (back) watches John Brooks practice the tournament.” Wednesday during a workout at the Sao Paulo FC training center.

Brazil’s Neymar No reason to rush prospects carries burden of expectations By TALES AZZONI The Associated Press SAO PAULO – Brazil striker Neymar is only 22 years old but knows he will be carrying the hopes of the host country at the World Cup.

With the No. 10 shirt made famous by Pele on his back, Neymar is aware of the expectations. “It’s an honor to be where I am today,” he said. “My friends keep telling me that I’m fulfilling their dreams too, not only mine, by playing in a World Cup here in Brazil. I hope I can play well and help my team the best way I can so we can fulfill the
Neymar will lead Brazil into its World Cup opener Thursday against Croatia in Sao Paulo. dream of every Brazilian by winning the title.” Neymar had already attracted most of the attention in Brazil, even before his high-profile transfer to Barcelona last year. With the experience gained by playing alongside the likes of Lionel Messi, the responsibilities have only increased. He is Brazil’s leading scorer ahead of the World Cup, with 31 goals in 49 matches. Striker Fred is the closest to him with 17 goals in 34 matches. Neymar said he knows his importance to the team but tried to downplay any idea that Brazil is just about him. “I don’t play by myself,” Neymar said. “There are 11 players on the field, and everybody knows their role and what they need to do to try to help our team make it far in the tournament.”
The impulse is natural. Some of you Cubs fans want to see Kris Bryant in the big leagues right now. You’d like a better reason to keep living than Mr. Potato Head Keychain Day on June 22 at Wrigley Field. I get it. The current blip of Cubs success aside, this has been a dreadful season that figures to stay dreadful. Bryant, meanwhile, is tearing it up at Double-A Tennessee. His 22 home runs, 55 RBIs and .357 average were leading the Southern League by a wide margin heading into Wednesday’s action. What, you’d like to know, is the holdup? It’s this: Do you really want to deprive Bryant of the knowledge, experience and pharmaceutical know-how of Manny Ramirez at Triple-A Iowa? Hey, just kidding! But there is no good reason to buy the kid a plane ticket to Chicago. I recommend a long, cold shower for those of you who want the Cubs to bring him to the big leagues any time soon. Bryant might end up being the superstar the franchise hopes he’ll be, but it’s hard to see a whole lot of good coming out of a June call-up or a July call-up or any kind of call-up besides the September kind. Same with Javier Baez and the other big-time prospects in the system, about whom your more “involved” Cubs fans know much too much. There is no rush here. The early reports are that Bryant’s swing is big-league ready. His glove? Not so much. He has 13 errors in 57 games at third base. If you’re the Cubs, you can’t have it both ways. You can’t commit to an austerity plan in the name of building a farm system and then rush along young players because you want to put more people inside Wrigley. If you wanted to put people in the seats this season, you would have fielded a major-league team at the major-league level. Same with those of you Theo-Epstein-is-god true believers: You can’t defend the

The Cubs aren’t the Pirates, who have struggled this year after going 94-68 last season. There is no team for Bryant to help at the bigleague level, the way there is for Polanco. Bryant, the second overall pick in the 2013 draft, is not the missing piece to a team that is close to winning regularly. For any rookie, the likelier outcome than wild success is badly bruised confidence, as we’ve seen throughout baseball history. Remember the clamoring for Felix Pie, Bobby Hill, Corey Patterson and all the rest of the Cubs’ “stars of the future” when they were minor-leaguers? How did that turn out? There’s no doubt the franchise felt public pressure to call up those players to the big leagues. It’s hard to come up with an equal to Cubs fans in terms of over-valuing new players. I’m thinking specifically here of Kosuke Fukudome after his first three games or so in Chicago. If I recall, fans were learning

Japanese so they could write a Hall of Fame speech for him in his native tongue. And now Bryant is the Next Big Thing. How about we give him some room to grow? Wednesday night was his 100th career minor-league game, which isn’t much. There is nothing to suggest that Epstein is toying with the idea of bringing up Bryant in the near future. It would run counter to everything he has said about building the organization the right way and making sure the base is strong. Ramirez will report soon to Iowa, where he’ll be a player/ coach. If Bryant ever makes it to Triple-A, he can pay attention to Ramirez’s approach to hitting and not much else. More importantly, he can put in the time to make sure he’s ready when the call from the Cubs comes. • Rick Morrissey is a Chicago Sun-Times sports columnist who can be reached at email@example.com.
WHITE SOX 8, TIGERS 2
By JOHN JACKSON CHICAGO – Jose Abreu hit an early homer off Justin Verlander, then singled to start a seven-run burst in the sixth inning that sent John Danks and the White Sox over the Detroit Tigers, 8-2, Wednesday night. Abreu went 3 for 4 with a walk and scored twice. The Cuban rookie has 19 home runs and 50 RBIs this season.
Danks (5-5) allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings to continue his recent turnaround. He has permitted just five runs in 291/3 innings over his last four starts. Verlander (6-6) gave up seven runs and eight hits in 52/3 innings. The seven runs in an inning matched a season high for the Sox. The Sox, who have won two straight against the AL Central-leading Tigers, also scored seven May 9 against Arizona.
Abreu connected on Verlander’s first pitch of the second inning for a solo homer over the left-center field wall. Detroit tied it in the fourth when Miguel Cabrera doubled and scored on a groundout by Torii Hunter. Singles by Abreu, Adam Dunn and Alexei Ramirez loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth. Dayan Viciedo grounded into a double play and Abreu scored for a 2-1 lead. It appeared as if Verlander might
escape with just one run scoring, but Alejandro De Aza followed with a bloop single for a run, and Adrian Nieto and Adam Eaton drew walks to load the bases. That brought up Gordon Beckham, and Detroit manager Brad Ausmus kept Verlander in the game despite the righthander having thrown 121 pitches to that point. The next pitch was a 96 mph fastball that Beckham lined for a tworun single.

Neighbor reaching out for relief should have his hands slapped Dear Abby: My girlfriend and I live next to a married couple our age we have befriended. Unfortunately, the husband has been making unwanted advances toward my girlfriend. Being friendly with them both, we have kept it to ourselves so as not to hurt the wife. She’s ill and has been in and out of the hospital. The husband is approaching my girlfriend saying he needs “stress relief” because his wife is ill. We now feel something needs to be said to the wife, but we still have to live next door to them. We’re at a loss. What’s the best way to handle this? – Had Enough In Florida Dear Had Enough: The next time this man hits on your girlfriend, she should tell him bluntly it’s not her job to “relieve his stress.” That is his responsibility. She also should tell him if it happens again she’ll tell you and his wife what he’s up to. As to being friendly with this couple in the future, forget it. That bridge was burned the first time he stepped out of line. Dear Abby: I have a
DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips colleague who’s a drama queen. Perhaps I’m a little bit guilty, too, but “Sharon” talks excessively about her personal life. There’s the boyfriend who doesn’t support her and their 2-year-old child financially or emotionally, her mom who suffers from many medical conditions, and her neighbor whose daughter was murdered some months ago. Sharon’s life seems to be a magnet for drama. My colleagues and I have lent our ears and our shoulders to cry on. I also have tried to advise her (as you do) to no avail. I now have reached my limit. Is there a tactful way to deal with her? We work in proximity at least half the time, so total avoidance is not possible. – Inundated In
Hawaii Dear Inundated: If Sharon asks you for advice, tell her you don’t have any more to offer. And if she starts
dumping on you, handle it by saying kindly, but firmly, you need to work and don’t have time to listen. If you say it often enough, Sharon will find someone else to listen. Trust me. Dear Abby: Do you have any advice for fathers who don’t listen to you? Or fathers who are too protective and don’t know how to let go? – Stargirl In Michigan Dear Stargirl: My advice to fathers would be to form as close a relationship with their daughters as they can when the girls are little. Teenage girls whose fathers are involved in their lives tend to engage in sexual activity at later ages. However, whether a father is “too protective” might be a question of perspective – the father’s or the daughter’s. I have heard many adults say in retrospect how much they appreciate that their parents were strict. But I rarely have heard the contrary.

Lung nodules are not always signs of cancer Dear Dr. K: I saw my doctor because I’ve been getting short of breath. He did an Xray and CT scan that found three small “pulmonary nodules.” Do I have lung cancer? Dear Reader: There are few things more frustrating, for both you and your doctor, than when the doctor says, “Well, it’s almost surely nothing to worry about … but there is a small possibility it’s bad.” How often does that happen? Pretty much every day, in my experience. The tests we have available today – particularly imaging tests – are much better at spotting possible problems than the tests available when I was in medical school. But how good are they at giving you a clear answer to the simple question: “Do I have something to worry about, doctor?” Not very good at all. Pulmonary nodules are a good example. The term nodule usually describes a small rounded growth or lump. Nodules can be a sign of cancer. But more often they are benign (noncancerous) growths. Pulmonary nodules are found in the lung and have several possible causes. These include: • Lung infections, including infections that occurred years or decades ago.
ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff • Exposure to lung irritants, such as coal dust or silica. • Abnormal blood vessels. • Minor abnormalities that have been present since birth. • Inflammatory conditions. • Lung cancer. • Cancer that started in another organ and spread to the lung. To determine what caused your nodules, your doctor will perform a thorough evaluation. This usually starts with your medical history. For example, a small lung nodule in a healthy 40-year-old who quit smoking 15 years ago is probably benign. On the other hand, several large nodules in a woman with breast cancer could mean the cancer has spread. Next, your doctor will review your X-rays. Certain characteristics might make the nodules appear more or less worrisome. For example, a smooth growth that’s surrounded by calcium (which appears white on an X-ray) is almost always left over from an old infection. If a nodule is found on a regular X-ray, a doctor will
likely order a computed tomography (CT) scan, as yours did. Newer types of tests, such as positron emission tomography (PET) scans, can provide additional information to help your doctor determine what caused your nodule. These additional tests are definitely superior to the standard X-ray in telling you there’s nothing to worry about. But they’re not perfect. If your doctor believes your nodule is benign, he or she might recommend a repeat X-ray or scan in three to six months. At that time, your doctor will check whether the nodule has grown. If the nodule remains the same size, this is usually reassuring. If your nodule looks suspicious or grows over time, you might need a biopsy. A small piece of the nodule will be removed and examined in a laboratory. That is the best way of knowing what you are dealing with. But it’s a procedure you have to go through, and it’s not as simple as a scan. Someday, scans will be so accurate you won’t have to go through a biopsy.

Jennifer Lopez said in an interview with The Associated Press that she was flying to Brazil on Tuesday night to perform during the tournament’s opening ceremony Thursday. “We always were going,” she said. “I think people get anxious, especially with me and my schedule when I’m like, ‘Ah, OK, I can leave this day, that day, I don’t know if we can make it.’ ” FIFA officials announced earlier this week that the singer wouldn’t perform alongside Pitbull and Claudia Leitte. But Lopez said they will perform before Brazil takes on Croatia at Thursday’s opening game in Sao Paulo.
Morrissey cancels tour to recover from infection
Barbra Streisand visits Capitol Hill for heart disease
NEW YORK – Morrissey has canceled the rest of his U.S. tour to recover from a respiratory infection that has worsened. His representative said in a statement Tuesday the 55-year-old singer wants to make a full recovery and has to withdraw from the shows. Morrissey kicked off his tour last month. The English singer played several dates before he contracted a respiratory infection in Miami. He was expected to wrap up the tour on June 21 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The statement said the former Smiths frontman thanks his fans “for their compassion, understanding, and well-wishes.”
WASHINGTON – Barbra Streisand appealed Wednesday to lawmakers on Capitol Hill for more funding and research devoted to women and heart disease, calling it the No. 1 killer of women even as most research into the disease focuses on men. “A woman’s heart is different from a man’s, yet women’s hearts are under-researched, go untreated and are misdiagnosed,” Streisand said in a statement. “Together, we can change that.” The Oscar, Emmy, Grammy and Tony winner, wearing all black and a long gold necklace, and two cardiologists spoke during a closed meeting with the House Bipartisan Women’s Caucus. People packed the meeting room and applauded during the session. She also met with the Senate women’s caucus and with other lawmakers. In 2012, Streisand founded the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute in Los Angeles to help research the disease that kills more women than all forms of cancer combined.
Paula Deen launching digital network
Trucker enters plea in crash NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – A truck driver pleaded not guilty Wednesday in the fatal New Jersey Turnpike crash that also injured comedian Tracy Morgan as investigators look into what role his long commute to work played in the accident. Walmart driver Kevin Roper lived in Georgia, but his job was based in Delaware, NTSB spokeswoman Kelly Nantel said. A criminal complaint alleges that the 35-year-old Roper, of Jonesboro, Georgia, hadn’t slept for more than 24 hours before the accident when he allegedly swerved to avoid slowed traffic on the turnpike and plowed into Morgan’s limo on Saturday morning. Walmart has not explained what Roper’s driving route was. The company has said it believes he was in compliance with federal safety regulations. Roper’s pleaded not guilty to assault and death by auto charges and his bail was kept at $50,000. Roper and his attorney, David Glassman, refused to answer reporters’ questions after the hearing about whether Roper was the author of tweets from a Twitter account bearing his name and featuring his picture and calling reports of his not having slept for 24 hours before the accident “complete BS!” A conviction on a death by auto charge carries a five-to-10-year prison sentence. Each assault by auto charge is punishable by up to 18 months in prison. The 45-year-old Morgan suffered a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs. His friend and fellow comedian James McNair was killed, and two other passengers were seriously injured. Another passenger was treated and released from the hospital Saturday, and the limo driver and one more passenger weren’t injured.
SAVANNAH, Ga. – Celebrity cook Paula Deen, whose career was derailed after she admitted using racial slurs, is going digital. Paula Deen Ventures, a new company formed to help launch a comeback for Deen, announced plans Wednesday for the creation of the Paula Deen Network. The paid subscription-based network is set to launch in September and will be accessible by computer, smartphone or tablet. The network will feature daily programming in an unscripted format with new recipes, episodes and cooking tools. Production for the network began last month at a new studio in Savannah that has been designed to look like the set of her first TV show, “Paula’s Home Cooking.” The set was built to accommodate a live studio audience, and guest appearances are planned.
Stevie J ‘feels great’ to be home, denies charge ATLANTA – An attorney for music producer Stevie J denies prosecutors’ allegations that his client owes $1 million in child support, and the reality star said he’s happy to be home on bond. The star of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,” whose real name is Steven Jordan, was released on a $25,000 bond Wednesday from the Fulton County Jail.

Things to consider before downsizing your home Once their kids have left the nest, many men and women over 50 begin to consider downsizing their homes. Downsizing to a smaller home can be beneficial for a variety of reasons, including less home to clean and maintain, more affordable utility bills and lower property taxes. But the decision to downsize is rarely black and white, and men and women often struggle with that decision. Perhaps the most difficult part of the decision of whether or not to downsize to a smaller home concerns the sentimental attachment many homeowners, especially those with children, have to their

homes. The home might be too big for your current needs, but it also was the same place where your son took his first steps and where your daughter lost her first tooth. Saying goodbye to a place that was home to so many memories isn’t easy. But there’s more than just sentimental value to consider when deciding whether or not to downsize your home after the kids have grown up and moved out.

Your financial situation merits significant consideration when deciding if the time is right to downsize your home. If your retirement nest egg is not as substantial as you would like it to be, then it would seem as though downsizing to a smaller, more affordable home is a great opportunity for you to start catching up on your retirement savings. But that’s only true if your new home won’t incur any additional expenses that are already taken care of in your current home. For example, your current home may be fully furnished, while a new, smaller home may require you to buy all new furniture because your existing items simply won’t fit. The cost of such furnishings can be considerable. If you plan to move into a condominium, you can expect to pay monthly homeowners association fees, and such fees are often substantial. So while the condo itself might be smaller, the additional expenses associated with the property may end up making the smaller home more expensive and prevent you from saving more money for retirement.

There are seller’s markets and there are buyer’s markets, and ideally you would
like to sell your home in a seller’s market. But keep in mind that this might be the same market in which you hope to buy a new home. The nature of the real estate market depends on a host of factors, including geography. If the city or town where you currently live is in the midst of a seller’s market and you are planning on moving to a location where buyers have the upper hand, then now might be a great time to move. But if you currently live in a buyer’s market and hope to move to a seller’s market, then you may end up paying a steep price, even when downsizing to a smaller home. Things may even themselves out if you want to downsize to a smaller home within your current community, but do your homework nonetheless, researching the time of year when you’re most likely to get the most for your home and find the best deal on your next place. The advantage men and women considering downsizing have is that they are rarely in a rush to move out of their current home and into their next one. This gives them ample time to make the real estate market work for them.
Space How much space do you really need? Once the kids have moved out, couples may feel like all of that extra space is going to waste. But that can be a knee-jerk reaction, and upon a more thorough examination of the space and your needs you may just find that you can put all of that extra square footage to good use after all. If you have always wanted your own art studio, then now might be the perfect time to make that a reality. Always wanted a room devoted to home theater? Get to work on converting your basement from an all-purpose game room to your own private movie theater. If, after considering the space in your home, you find that the extra square footage really is just upkeep you aren’t especially interested in doing, then you would no doubt like a cozier home that’s less of a responsibility to maintain. Downsizing a home is something many men and women over 50 consider after their children have moved out. Such a decision is rarely easy, so homeowners should take as much time as they need before making a final decision to move or stay put.

HOMElife The right outdoor furniture can make summer soirees that much more enjoyable. Lounging in a comfortable patio chair is a great way to spend a warm summer evening. But choosing the right outdoor furniture for your patio is about more than finding the most comfortable chair. The following are a few tips for homeowners looking to make the most of their patio space.
Consider the function of your patio. Some homeowners can’t go a weekend without having guests over to entertain, while others prefer their patios to serve as a peaceful retreat from everyone and everything. If you’re among the former, then you will likely want your patio to resemble an outdoor dining area, which means you will need room for a table and multiple chairs. If you want the patio to serve as a retreat, then you likely won’t need a full dining set. Instead, choose a small table and one or two dining chairs, decorating the rest of the patio with a chaise lounge or two, which allows you to stretch out and take a nap if you so desire.
Opt for low-maintenance furniture. When choosing outdoor furniture, keep in mind that the patio and the furniture on it is meant to offer a place to unwind and relax. Furniture that must be constantly cleaned or covered up because it can’t brave the elements cuts into your relaxation time. All-weather wicker pieces and metal chairs can brave the elements, and even do so for years and years.
Find the right outdoor furniture
Consider double-sided cushions. When constantly exposed to the sun, the fabric on cushions can fade fast. Though some homeowners combat this by keeping an umbrella open or adding an awning to cover the patio, that’s not always a practical solution. Instead, consider double-sided cushions that can be flipped every so often to reduce fading.
Don’t overlook weight. Heavy outdoor furniture might seem more stable, but such items also are more difficult to move. That’s tricky for homeowners who like to rearrange their patio furniture or those who prefer to move their furnishings into a shed to reduce their exposure to the elements. If you frequently move your outdoor furniture, then opt for items that are lightweight to make all those trips to the garage or shed a little easier.

Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com • Section E • Thursday, June 12, 2014 • Annual Drinking Water Quality Report City of Marengo – IL 1110650 For the period January 1 to December 31, 2013 This report is designed to inform the Citizens of Marengo about the quality water and services that we deliver every day. Our constant goal is to provide a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We are continually striving to improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of Marengo’s drinking water. This report will not be mailed to Marengo water customers; however, the reports are available upon request. For more information regarding this report or to request a copy of this report, please call the Water Department at 815-568-7112, ext. 217. Este informe contiene informacion muy importatne sobre el agua que usted bebe. Traduzacalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien. The City of Marengo routinely monitors for constituent in its drinking water according to Federal and State laws. This report indicates the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2013. The employees of the City of Marengo Water Department work around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap. We ask that all our customers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and our children’s future. Sources of Drinking Water The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick-up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or
(Published in the Northwest Herald June 12, 2014 #3555)
result from urban storm water runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm water runoff, and residential uses. Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban storm water runoff, and septic systems. Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the EPAs Safe Drinking Water Hotline at (800) 426-4791. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. We cannot control the
variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by ﬂushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. Source Water Assessment We want our valued customers to be informed about their water quality. If you would like to learn more, please feel welcome to attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. The source water assessment for our supply has been completed by the Illinois EPA. If you would like a copy of this information, please stop by City Hall or call the Water Department at 815-568-7112, ext. 217. To view a summary version of the completed Source Water Assessments, including: Importance of Source Water; Susceptibility to Contamination Determination; and documentation/recommendation of Source Water Protection Efforts, you may access the Illinois EPA website at http://www.epa.state.il.us/cgi-bin/wp/swap-factsheets.pl. To determine Marengo’s susceptibility to groundwater contamination, the following documents were reviewed: a Well Site Survey, published in 1989 by the Illinois EPA; a Hazard Review, published in 1990 by the Illinois EPA; and a Source Water Protection Plan prepared by the Village of Marengo and published by the Illinois Rural Water Association in May of 1997. Based on the information obtained in these documents there are 9 potential sources of groundwater contamination that could pose a hazard to groundwater utilized by the Marengo community water supply wells. Furthermore, information provided by the Leaking Underground Storage Tank and Remedial Project Management Sections of Illinois EPA indicated several additional sites with on-going remediation’s which may be of concern. Based upon this information, the Illinois EPA has determined that the Marengo Community Water Supply’s source water has a high susceptibility to VOC and SOC contamination. The basis for this determination includes the detection of VOC in Well #6 and the land use within the recharge areas of the wells. This land use includes both industrial and agricultural properties. However, as a result of monitoring conducted at the wells and entry point to the distribution system, the land use activities and source water protection initiatives by the City (refer to the following section of this report), the Marengo Community Water Supply’s source water has a low susceptibility to IOC contamination.

Steven Wright, a comedian who specializes in deadpan delivery, said, “Right now I’m having amnesia and deja vu at the same time.” Cast your mind back to yesterday’s column. Then look at this one. Maybe you will have a Steven Wright moment. West is defending against four hearts. He leads off with the club ace: six, queen, nine. How should he hope to defeat the contract? The bidding is instructive. North is right to make a takeout double over one club. True, if South does not have a ive-card major, the ensuing 4-3 major-suit it might be worse than a 5-3 or 5-4 diamond it. But a good South will have a ive-card major. East made a pre-emptive jump raise to three clubs, promising ive or more clubs and a weak hand. With game-invitational or greater strength, he would have responded with an artiicial two no-trump. (When responder has a big balanced hand, he starts with redouble over an opponent’s takeout double.) South cue-bid four clubs to show a strong two-
suiter. (With a good onesuiter, he would have jumped in that suit.) Note East’s play of the club queen. When a defender cannot win a trick, he plays top of touching honors (assuming he can afford to do so, of course). Now West should see four defensive tricks: two clubs, the heart king and a diamond ruff. At trick two, not later, West must shift to his singleton diamond. He then gets in with the heart king, underleads his club king to give East the lead, and receives a diamond ruff.

TODAY - Let nothing stand in your way. Make whatever adjustments necessary to make your life more in accord with your personality and dreams. Convey your accomplishments to people who can help you establish a successful path. Show enthusiasm and self-confidence, and prepare yourself for a dynamic year. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Events could get out of hand if you are too emotional. It’s best to hold back and act as an observer if you want to avoid getting dragged into a dispute. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your quest for success is likely to dominate you, causing insensitivity toward a friend or relative. Before making a move, consider the effects a change will have on others. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Love, friendship and high spirits will keep you feeling on top of the world today. Be sure to include younger and older family members in your activities. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You will make a lot more progress if you stop trying to persuade people to see things your way. Belief in your own worth is more important than the opinions of others. Follow your own path. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You will meet someone who interests you if you get out and socialize. Attend an event, get-together or activity that will allow you to put your charm to good use. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Make your work uniquely your own. Don’t tempt fate by sharing your plans. Be protective of your ideas to ensure that others don’t try to profit from your efforts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- A loved one may feel neglected or taken for granted. Being conscientious and caring will help you avoid an emotional encounter. Nurture what you’ve got before it’s too late. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Keep your secrets tucked away. You can get through anything if you remain calm and in control. Once the dust has settled, you can put your plans in motion. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Consider all your options before making a decision. Someone will offer insightful advice, allowing you to find a solution to an urgent dilemma. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You may be lacking the key facts of a situation that is developing around you. Refuse to let anyone influence you. Stay neutral until you know the whole truth. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Let your imagination run free. Fantasize about your future, and you will discover a new and exciting avenue that will help to get you where you want to go. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don’t be too eager to pick up the tab for someone else. Hold on to your cash. Lending, borrowing or making a donation will not turn out in your favor.

Natural talent Theatre on the Green members take a break for a snack during rehearsal. The group is putting on the show “Persephone” June 12-15 at their Theatre on the Green Hut, 15314 St. Patrick Road, Woodstock. The show will raise money for TLS Veterans, which operates New Horizons, a shelter for homeless veterans in Hebron.
Love of theater, helping others inspires stage performances on farmland in rural Woodstock Story by JAMI KUNZER - firstname.lastname@example.org Photos by KYLE GRILLOT - email@example.com
Caleb Staunton, 12, of McHenry, listens to others go over lines during a recent rehearsal.
his is a place where children arrive dressed as Greek gods and goddesses, carrying fake swords and shields, wearing flower headdresses. It’s a place where they can both be themselves and anything they can possibly imagine, where they go places without really leaving. They’re told things such as, “Go get your staff, and start walking and talking like an old woman” or to adjust their togas. They’re told, “Every word you say should be strong.” “Louder,” instructs Lisa Waichunas as she stands at the edge of a stage in the middle of an old Quonset hut in rural Woodstock. Based on the design of buildings created during World War I, the arched, steel-walled Quonset huts often held latrines and barracks. Behind a farmhouse on a winding country road, mosquito-repellent candles burning, this hut has become a place where creativity is encouraged and comedic and classic shows fill the surrounding farmfields with laughter and drama. This is Theatre on the Green.
And a cast of 14 students of Waichunas’ are rehearsing for their next production, “Persephone,” which runs June 12-15 at the Theatre on the Green Hut, 15314 S. Patrick Road, Woodstock. Twelve-year-old Kaleb Staunton of McHenry is dressed as the Olympian god Hermes, and having trouble not tripping on his toga. “Hike that up,” Waichunas tells him. Staunton has worked with Waichunas since he was 5 years old. “My mom was, like, wanting me to get into something because I didn’t really have any friends when I was little,” he says. “She signed me up, and I stuck with it.” Here, everyone’s friends, he says, waving to someone arriving with dark black circles painted around her eyes. “It always works out,” Staunton says of the various casts that have come and gone. “It’s always pretty cool.” Signs don’t point the way to Theatre on the Green. Located behind an old farmhouse at the end of a gravel drive, it doesn’t have a marquee or really anything to identify it. But for the past eight years or so, theater lovers have found it. Waichunas created Theatre on the Green when she moved to the Woodstock farmhouse to care for her late father. She had spent a couple of decades in Chicago studying acting at the Ted Liss Studio and appeared in numerous theatrical productions. She studied Shakespeare at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London and acted on the television series “Early Edition” and in numerous roles in industrial training films in Chicago and Milwaukee. Back in Woodstock, she couldn’t travel to theater, so she created her own. The theater company’s first year in 2006, she pitched a 30-by-45-foot tent in the front yard of the farmhouse and put on a show with a group of young students. Family and friends gathered, sitting on the green grass to watch the show. “Theatre on the Green was born,” she says. “When it comes to theater, you have to love it,” she says. “I just love theater, love working with kids. They overwhelm me with their talents and creativity.” Putting on at least two productions a year in the fall and spring, Waichunas occasionally still uses the tent. For shows that require a darker atmosphere, the Quonset hut is put to use. Once a storage building at the farmhouse, the hut has required plenty of clearing out over the years. “We’re still cleaning it out,” Waichunas says as she looks around the building. Tables filled with theater props and old backdrops line the walls, a wooden stage in the middle. Earning a certificate in elementary education and a Master of Arts in teaching, Waichunas doesn’t make any profit
for the program. With the students’ help in picking charities, the money raised from the productions goes to others in need. “Persephone” will benefIt TLS Veterans, which operates a shelter for homeless veterans in Hebron. “‘Homeless’ is a terrible word,” said Waichunas, whose father was a World War II veteran. “When you combine it with ‘homeless veterans,’ to me, that’s abominable.” Students in Theatre on the Green, ages 6 and older, can take various levels of classes ranging in size from 2 to 22. At the end of the class, students put WHAT: “Perseon a show, becoming phone” involved in every asWHEN: June 12-15 pect from writing and WHERE: Theatre directing to performon the Green Hut, ing. 15314 St. Patrick Students often write their own oneRoad, Woodstock. act comedies, such COST & INFO: as the recent “Play Presented by Theof Life,” based on the atre on the Green game of Life.

Her 13-year-old daughter, Claire, also joined the cast this year. “We found Lisa, and I loved her energy,” Tina Anderson said. “You have kids that are athletes and kids that are artists and kids that love theater. ... There are so many other things besides acting these kids are learning.”

You can be involved,” she said of the show. “We’ll make you part of the show, and I don’t think you can get that anywhere else. Plus it’s great music and FIND MORE a great time.” Created in 2007 by Kyle Hustedt, UP CLOSE the Cabaret Project involves a group of PROFILES @ 10 performers who do song and dance PlanitNorthwest.com/upclose revues of Broadway, pop and jazz songs.
The group is part of a June 14 Great Gatsby Mansion Party and regularly hosts Cabaret Extravaganzas and Musical Murder Mystery Dinner Theaters at Maxwell Mansion, a historic mansion built in 1865 and recently bought by the owners of Baker House in Lake Geneva. The mansion features an Apothecary Bar and Crystal Ballroom, and a 1920s Speakeasy Lounge has been added to the mansion’s basement. Guests are invited to have dinner at the Baker House, about a block away from the mansion, before heading to the show. Hustedt teamed up with the owners of both venues last summer to regularly host shows with his cast, many of whom have been with him since the beginning, including Freyre. “These are incredibly talented people working day jobs and starting families, and we’re something that is doable,” he said. “You can bring four or five songs to a Cabaret revue and work up a duet and a couple group numbers and you’ve got a show.” The Musical Murder Myster Dinner Theaters involve a cast of three featuring historical characters from Lake Geneva and the involvement of audience members who play characters and must figure out the murderer. “We’re all sort of driving the story,” said Hustedt, who started out producing shows on cruise ships. “I was trying to figure out a way to come back to Chicago and do something
The Cabaret Project, featuring Meredith Freyre (above), regularly puts on Cabaret Extravaganzas and Musical Murder Mystery Dinner Theater shows at the Maxwell Mansion, 421 Baker St., Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. A Great Gatsby Mansion Party is scheduled for 7 p.m. June 14. Cabaret Extravaganzas are scheduled for 7 and 9:30 p.m. June 28, July 12, Aug. 2 and Aug. 23.

The vision was to build a nightclub and do the whole thing, and then the recession happened. I decided I would not stop at all in producing these shows.” His Cabaret Project officially became a nonprofit group a couple of years ago, which has opened up more possibilities for grants to help fund it. “Part of our mission statement is for artists to be able to earn a living for their art,” Hustedt said. “Most singers can’t do that.” He knew the first time he heard Freyre sing at an audition that she’d be a part of his project. “From the second she opened her mouth, it was like, ‘Oh my gosh,’” he said. “We became friends from that very first night. She’s been on board ever since. Now she’s pretty much my right hand.”

LOVELY VISUALS, SMART WRITING IN ‘DRAGON’ By JOCELYN NOVECK The Associated Press You thought it was tricky to train a dragon? It’s even trickier to take a muchadmired animated film and make a sequel that feels satisfying and worthwhile. And it’s harder still to balance the competing needs of stretching the story in new directions but retaining the guiding spirit of the original enough to make fans happy. It’s nice to be able to report that “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” written and directed by Dean DeBlois, does all that tricky stuff pretty darned well. And you’ll be happily surprised at the new twists it takes – sort of like getting an unexpected second candy bar in the vending machine. “How to Train Your Dragon 2” doesn’t play it safe, and that’s why it’s the rare sequel that doesn’t feel somewhat stale. The story returns us to Berk, where our young Viking hero, Hiccup (again voiced by Jay Baruchel), lives and frolics with his devoted dragon, Toothless, whom he befriended in the first movie, with momentous ramifications for humandragon relations. Five years have passed, and now Berk is a virtual playground for dragons and Vikings alike. An amusing opening sequence shows the new pursuit of dragon-racing, a game that vaguely resembles Quidditch. And adjustments have been made to enhance dragon-human coexistence: for example, an aqueduct system to quickly put out those pesky dragon-breath fires. Hiccup, though, isn’t into the games –
“HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2” STARRING: Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler
PLOT: When Hiccup and Toothless discover an ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. RATED: PG for adventure action and some mild rude humor RUNNING TIME: 1 hour, 42 minutes he’s attracted to the beautiful skies and spends his time exploring them, aboard Toothless, adding to the map he’s making of the world. His first scene of airborne frolic with Toothless is absolutely beautiful, and a sign of the visual delights to come. Hiccup’s restless nature, though, is at odds with the aspirations of his burly father, Stoick the Vast (a sweetly gruff Gerard Butler), who wants Hiccup to take up new responsibilities. But Hiccup doesn’t feel leadership is really his thing. That’s what he tells spunky Astrid (America Ferrera, back from the first film), who is now his girlfriend, as well as a fellow explorer. (Other famous returning voices are Jonah Hill as Snotlout and Kristen Wiig as Ruffnut.) One day Hiccup and Astrid make an ominous discovery: A trapper’s fort. Eret, son of Eret (Kit Harington) is cocky and ambitious. But his boss? He’s evil. That would be Drago Bludvist (Djimon Hounsou), a vicious villain who’s building a
dragon army. Hiccup resolves to stop him. And someone else, he learns – a mysterious figure in the skies – is also fighting Drago. Her name is Valka, and she is, shockingly, none other than Hiccup’s mother, long presumed dead. In fact, Valka – voiced by Cate Blanchett in an elegant, otherworldly accent – has spent these long years saving dragons. The scene in which she shows him the fantastic oasis where these rescued dragons live – a tropical wonderland inside a giant ice formation – is a marvel of color and inventive design, probably the prettiest scene in the film. For a while, it seems like a perfect family reunion. But happiness is shortlived. Valka doesn’t believe, as her family does, that dragons can live with humans – humans can be too cruel. And Drago, with his violent plans, is proving her right. Without giving away too much, this is where the film travels into darker areas than its predecessor, displaying an admirable maturity. Many animated tales involve dashing acts of bravery, but rarely do they show the possible tragic consequences of such acts. Many tears will be shed over the scene where Hiccup learns that bad things can happen to good people. And there’s another lesson here, too: People – or creatures – who love you sometimes can still hurt you. Relationships have their limits. Animated films for kids don’t routinely address such matters. Kudos to the creators here, who took a terrific first film and made a sequel that, both visually and thematically, lives up to that promise.
