Bleacher lawsuit costs mounting Documents: Crystal Lake has paid more than $225K in legal fees, more than District 155 By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com

CRYSTAL LAKE – The lawsuit over the controversial bleachers at Crystal Lake South High School has cost the city of Crystal Lake more than $225,000 in legal fees, documents show. The price tag has been a lot

lower for Crystal Lake-based Community High School District 155, coming in at more than $70,000 after the insurance cooperative the district belongs to picked up the remaining tab of more than $310,000. The district’s attorneys also agreed to appeal the case to the Illinois Supreme Court pro bono.

Budget impasse growing deficit

The district’s attorneys hired public relations firm Jasculca Terman and Associates in September on behalf of the district to provide guidance on “public, parent and media communications regarding recent issues involving facilities and related litigation,” according to the contract.

The services cost the district about $13,000 between September and January, according to invoices obtained by the Northwest Herald through the Freedom of Information Act. The case dates back to August 2013, when the owners of two properties that back up to the Crystal Lake South foot-

ball field and the then-stillin-progess bleacher expansion sued the school district, arguing the district bypassed the city’s zoning process. Property owners asked the courts to stop the work. Since then, the case has wound its way through the court system – with the city of Crystal Lake added to the suit

as a counter-defendant and the school district ordered to go through the city’s zoning process even as the Illinois Supreme Court agreed to hear the case. The top court heard arguments in the case in May, and a decision could come as soon

McHENRY COUNTY NURSING HOMES START TO FEEL EFFECTS OF AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

Courts, mandates forcing Illinois to continue spending By SARA BURNETT The Associated Press CHICAGO – Illinois Republicans and Democrats alike wailed when the Democrat-controlled Legislature approved a state budget last year that was more than $1 billion out of balance. Then-gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner called the spending plan “phony,” while the party in power acknowledged it was “incomplete” and riddled with gimmicks. But the state now is on course to dig itself a far greater budget hole through either unwillingness or inability to act on the current fiscal year’s budget. One estimate puts the deficit at $5 billion, thanks to court- and statute-mandated spending already underway at levels that both sides say is unsustainable. Lawmakers say they’re not even sure how much money is going out the door. They agree the situation is leading Illinois – already billions in debt – to rack up more. They acknowledge balancing the budget gets more difficult with each passing day. Yet, like most everything else at the state Capitol these days, they’re split along party lines as to who’s to blame and how to fix it. The effect on residents and businesses is clear: There’ll be a “dramatic” increase in what the state eventually will have to raise in taxes, cut in spending – or both, said Laurence Msall, president of The

Nursing home care changing Costs, readmission rates will determine long-term success for caregivers By EMILY K.

As more accountable care organizations – which are voluntary groups of doctors, hospitals and other providers focused on providing a network of care – form and grow stronger, they establish lists of preferred nursing homes they give to patients, Banks said.

Continued from page A1 as September, when the court returns from recess. The lengthy process is why Crystal Lake Mayor Aaron Shepley, a lawyer by profession, wasn’t surprised by how much the lawsuit has ended up costing. “We’re certainly not overpaying our lawyers,” he said. “That’s what it costs.” Still, Shepley, who blames the existence of the lawsuit on the school Aaron board’s obstinacy, hopes Shepley to recoup some of the costs through fines being tallied for the school district’s failure to comply with the city’s zoning laws. “There is absolutely no desire on the part of the City Council to punish the taxpayers of School District 155, which includes the residents of Crystal Lake, for the stupidity of the school board,” he said. “That’s not the intent.” His intent is to spread the cost of the lawsuit across the residents of the territorially larger school district, which in-

cludes Bull Valley, Cary, Fox River Grove, Lake in the Hills, Lakewood, Oakwood Hills and Prairie Grove and Crystal Lake. The city notified the school district in October 2014 – after an appellate court judge ruled the district was in violation of the city’s zoning code – that it was starting the clock on the daily fines. The letter said the bleachers violate five elements of the city’s zoning code, including being too tall and too close to neighboring properties, and that each of these violations carried a daily fine of $1,000. The potential fines have added up to more Johnnie than a $1 million and conThomas tinue to grow despite the school district starting the court-ordered zoning process that ultimately resulted in a down vote by the Crystal Lake City Council, according to the city’s director of community development, Michelle Rentzsch. “As long as there are zoning violations, fines can continue to accrue,” she said in an email. “Of course, if an enforcement action to collect the fines is necessary, a court could come to a different conclusion.”

District 155 Superintendent Johnnie Thomas isn’t commenting on the fines, he told the Northwest Herald. His main focus is ensuring the district is making sure “students are college- and career-ready.” “I can’t control what another government entity does,” he said. Insurance has picked up the “vast majority” of the school district’s legal costs, and despite the lawsuit, the district’s insurance costs are set to drop this year by about $87,000, according to district documents. The city’s insurance didn’t kick in likely because the city wasn’t facing financial liability as part of the suit, said Victor Filippini, the city’s attorney on the bleacher issue. The decision handed by the Illinois Supreme Court, however, could have a big effect on the district’s bottom line, something Thomas noted in a recent school board discussion on the budget. It would cost an estimated $4 million to $5 million to move the home bleachers back to the building side of the stadium, away from the residents, Josh Czerniak, a project manager with district-hired FGM Architects, told the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission in April. That dollar figure includes the original $1.18 million cost of the expansion.

HARVARD

City IDs strengths, weaknesses of park plan By HANNAH PROKOP hprokop@shawmedia.com HARVARD – A dog park, a recreation center and new walkways are all ideas that have been tossed around to improve Harvard’s parks, said Mike Clarke, Harvard alderman and chairman of the parks and recreation committee. Analysis of the parks is underway after consultant Bill James, with Camiros Ltd. in Chicago, met with community members and came up with a

strength, weakness, opportunities and threats analysis of the park system, which he presented at Thursday’s Parks and Recreation Committee meeting. “I feel like everybody’s finally working together, and we’re definitely building some positive momentum,” Clarke said Friday. One strength of Harvard’s parks identified was the availability of space, with more than 50 acres of land at Milky Way Park and more than 30 acres of

CRYSTAL LAKE

City files lawsuit over failing water treatment system By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – A water treatment system serving one of the city of Crystal Lake’s wells keeps clogging up, forcing the city to shut the system down and clean it out more often than it should, an attorney for the city said. That’s why the city of Crystal Lake is suing general contractor Maxim Construction Corporation of Volo and manufacturer Envirogen Technologies, seeking to recoup all the costs and expenses related to the ion exchange water treatment system and its failures, said attorney Mark Burkland, of Chicago-based Holland and Knight. The city had hired Maxim Construction for about $1.3 million to renovate the building and install the system, Burkland said, adding the lawsuit doesn’t have a set dollar amount attached to it. The city awarded the bid in August 2010, but by August 2011, the city had to shut down the water treatment plant because the new system failed, according to the city’s com-

plaint. The system repeatedly failed and caused other problems through the end of 2011 and through April 2012, before failing again in October. The city has 10 other fully operational wells that can meet the city’s water needs, Burkland said. The affected well does operate occasionally. Envirogen Technologies filed a lawsuit of its own in federal court against Maxim Construction in March 2014, saying the company didn’t pay the entire $948,565 that the system cost, according to the complaint. The lawsuit filed by the city is only in its beginning stages, and Envirogen Technologies and Maxim Construction haven’t yet filed their responses to the complaint. Both, however, are trying to reach a settlement in the federal case, according to court records. Envirogen Technologies officials didn’t return a call for comment Friday, and none of the publicly available numbers for Maxim Construction led to the business.

land at Lions Park, Clarke said. Harvard has nine parks with about 130 acres of land total. Clarke said another strength is the volunteer organizations, including football, baseball and soccer teams, that donate time to take care of and prepare the fields. The Parks and Recreation Department also maintains the city’s fields, Clarke said, but he said some parks have equipment in poor condition. Another weakness identified was the condition of the

department’s budget, which is about $145,000, Clarke said. He said in the past five years, money has been cut from the Parks and Recreation Department’s budget to pay for the rising costs of police pensions and Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund obligations. An option for funding the projects could come from the $300,000 in bonds from the city pool and Harvard Diggins Library that matures in about three years, Clarke said. “That’s really the only oth-

er option we have at this point to generate revenues to pay for some of the ideas we came up with,” Clarke said. Clarke said when the bond expires, there would be a referendum to ask the public if it would like to keep paying the same property taxes, but have the money go toward the library and parks budget, instead of the library and pool budget. A website for the park’s master plan was made to provide updates on the project and

a space for community members to give feedback. In June, the city approved a contract with Camiros Ltd. to create a long-term comprehensive parks plan. Clarke said the next step is to gain more feedback from the public at a meeting at 7 p.m. Sept. 15 at Harvard Diggins Library. He said there will be one or two open houses to gain community input before finalizing a general long-term plan for the parks by the end of the year.

State on track to spend $38B in ’15 • BUDGET

Continued from page A1 Civic Federation, a nonpartisan research organization. “This is an incremental path down the road of fiscal recklessness and irresponsibility,” Msall said. At the center of the problem is a disagreement between Rauner and Democrats over what should be included in the budget. The former private equity investor negotiating his first state budget wants a package that includes changes to curb public-employee unions’ influence and reduce costs for businesses. He said he won’t consider a tax increase until the Legislature gives in to some of those priorities. But Democrats said Rauner’s agenda will hurt the middle class, and they want to raise revenue to balance the budget without severe spending cuts. In May, Democrats ap-

proved a budget that spent almost $4 billion more than the estimated $33 billion Illinois is expected to take in this year. Rauner signed the piece of the budget that funds schools, but vetoed the rest, saying he was trying to put Illinois on the road to “fiscal sanity.” He also deemed unconstitutional the one-month, stopgap budget Democrats sent him because, if applied over the full fiscal year, it would lead to an unbalanced budget. Meanwhile, dozens of consent decrees issued by federal courts kicked in, mandating Illinois continue to spend money on services such as the Department of Children and Family Services and Medicaid. Plus, payments to pension funds, debt service and tax refunds also are automatically authorized by law. And Rauner and labor unions were granted a court order requiring the state to continue to pay its employees at their normal salaries; Democratic

Attorney General Lisa Madigan had objected. Ninety percent of what the state usually spends has been authorized, despite having no approved budget, an analysis by Senate Democrats concluded. They said if spending continues at this rate, Illinois is on track to spend about $38 billion this year, leading to a $5 billion deficit. The Rauner administration didn’t dispute the numbers, but blamed House Speaker Michael Madigan and other Democrats for supporting a “failed status quo.” Rauner this past week called the situation “very tragic.” Madigan said it’s Rauner who has forced the state to spend money by seeking pay for state workers and approving the schools’ budget. The House revenue committee will continue hearings Monday to try to determine how much the state is spending – something all involved, Rauner’s staff included, acknowledge is a mystery.

Reducing readmission rates lowers cost of health care Continued from page A1 they get shrink. The hospitals at the heart of these organizations also are coordinating care, allowing a greater number of patients to go home directly instead of spending time at a nursing home or when they do transition to a nursing home, spending less time there, he said. After Advocate Health Care became an accountable care organization, the average number of days a patient stays in a nursing home dropped to the mid-teens from the mid-30s, Banks said. The percent of patients who end up back in the hospital within a certain period also has fallen to less than 14 percent from the mid-20s, said Denise Keefe, president of Advocate’s post-acute care network. “When you reduce the readmission rates, you reduce the total cost of care,” she said. “That’s where everything starts to align. Those good outcomes really drive efficiency.” Advocate now works with 37 nursing homes across the

Chicago metropolitan area, having its physicians and nurses follow the patient as they move from the hospital to the nursing home, providing scheduled and in-the-moment training, and meeting monthly with nursing homes to keep communication open and improve the transition process, Keefe said. The nursing homes that make up that list already were receiving a sizable number of Advocate patients, which is why Advocate approached them about these partnerships, Keefe said. After that, the focus became improving the quality metrics, something that takes the nursing home and Advocate working together. This model only is reaching the edges of McHenry County, but nursing homes such as Hearthstone are positioning themselves for the spread by improving their partnerships with their local hospital, which in the case of Hearthstone is Centegra Hospital – Woodstock, and watching their costs and readmission rates, Hatten said. “There will be a lot of benefits to the consumer, to the patient, to the family,” he said.

City Council approves liquor sales at taqueria meeting, and the license was unanimously approved at the Aug. 4 meeting. Council member Daniel Hart recused himself from the vote because, under state law, anyone who holds a liquor license is not able to participate. Disapproval of awarding the liquor license was voiced by Woodstock resiBrian Sager dent Ellen O’Rourke because it gives the owner the option to pursue a video gaming license. “I strongly object to it,” O’Rourke said. “I think we have far too much video gambling in this town and around the Square.”

By HANNAH PROKOP hprokop@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – People may soon see beer and wine as options on the menu at La Placita Taqueria, along with its regular Mexican food. The restaurant on the Square, at 108 Cass St. in Woodstock, received approval for a Class E-1 liquor license, which allows restaurants to sell beer and wine. Restaurant owner Edgardo Urbina said at the last two City Council meetings that he does not intend to ever modify to a full-service bar, or bring video gaming into his establishment. The moratorium on a liquor license was waived for the restaurant at the July 21

She also questioned why the city has a moratorium on liquor licenses if they choose to lift it for some cases. Mayor Brian Sager said at Tuesday’s meeting “the moratorium is actually working,” because it allows the city to say no to businesses interested in pursuing a liquor license Roscoe for the purpose Stelford of having video gambling. City Manager Roscoe Stelford said Thursday that after completing some paperwork, Edgardo will receive the liquor license for his restaurant.

2 critically injured in head-on crash The Woodstock Fire Rescue District was dispatched to the scene along with the sheriff’s office, Lt. Mike Brinkman said. “There was heavy damage,” he said. “One vehicle was on its roof in a ditch, so we had to extricate both patients.” Both were taken in critical condition to Centegra Hospital – Woodstock, where Knop said Rivas was listed in serious condition as of late Saturday. Drake, still critical, was transferred to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge for its higher level trauma center. Both were wearing their seatbelts, and airbags were deployed. The investigation is ongoing by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office traffic accident investigation unit, Knop said.

By ALLISON GOODRICH agoodrich@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – A head-on collision near Woodstock sent two residents to the hospital, one in serious condition and the other in critical condition, according to the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office. The crash, which occurred at 2:36 p.m. at Kishwaukee Valley and Dimmel roads in unincorporated McHenry County, left 59-year-old Roberto Rivas of Garden Prairie in serious condition and 18-yearold Elijah Drake of Belvidere in critical condition, McHenry County Sheriff’s Deputy Aimee Knop said late Saturday.

SKETCH VIEW

Make the most of new school year Students and teachers from several local school districts head back to class this week, with others returning the following week. There’s always a mixed reaction about the first day of school, even within the same person. Often it’s a mix of anxiety, excitement or both about new teachers or new classmates. There’s a sense of melancholy about the end of summer. Each school year brings a For the record fresh start. Maybe you had a terWhatever the feelings are rific school last that first day, we’re sure stuyear. Grades were dents and parents have hopes fantastic, you got and dreams for this academic along well with year. teachers, and you are looking forward to seeing your classmates again and meeting some new faces. With that attitude, you’re ahead of the game. How about trying to top those efforts this year? Is there a new sport or activity you’ve wanted to try? Books you’ve wanted to read? Find out what else you’re capable of accomplishing. Whatever the feelings are that first day, we’re sure students and parents have hopes and dreams for this academic year. We also have hopes for this academic year. We hope students come to class every day ready to learn something new and build on the knowledge they have. We hope they take advantage of opportunities to get engaged in their schools, whether that’s through academics, athletics or extracurricular activities. We hope parents help their children transition into the new year by helping them get organized, talk to them daily about how their day went, lend a hand with homework and get engaged with each child’s teachers. Learning doesn’t stop at the classroom, and success at school needs to be a partnership between parent and educator. We hope each school is gifted with teachers and administrators who want to share their love of learning with every student who walks through their doors. We hope our local communities embrace opportunities to partner with their local school districts, whether it’s through providing mentoring or internships to students, attending football games and school plays or contributing to a PTO. Most of all, we hope students, parents, teachers and the community embrace the potential a new academic year brings.

Kids need exercise The notion that if you don’t exercise, you get fat does not seem the basis for scientific study because the answer is obvious. But looking under the headlines, a new study from LSU’s Pennington Biomedical Research Center points out the dimensions of an issue that is important worldwide. The insight gleaned from the study is that, while diet and exercise play major roles in health, “physical activity makes an even bigger impact on children’s weight than we previously thought,” said Peter Katzmarzyk, an author of the study in the international journal Obesity. “This study shows that obesity cannot be explained away by culture, class or status, and these research results reinforce the need for kids to engage in play time and other forms of physical activity each day.” The challenge of television and the gaming screen for American kids is one thing, but the giant study – international in scope and involving children in poorer and wealthier countries – showed that lack of exercise is a concern that crosses many lines of class, race or family situation. This research assessed associations between lifestyle behaviors and childhood obesity in a multinational setting, surveying both high- and low-income children between ages 9 and 11 from 12 countries, varying from Brazil to Kenya to the United Kingdom and U.S. What the text shows is the temptations toward physical laziness in youth are universal enough to give pause to those in public health who want to pin the problem on one behavior peculiar to, or one particular condition in, a rich or a poor society. Or, for that matter one particular solution like turning off the television. The results “reinforce the importance of promoting healthy lifestyles among children as an obesity prevention strategy across different cultures and environments.” Easier said than done, as any parent of a pre-teen can tell you. But Katzmarzyk said it’s also important to have the baseline data in this study to dispel notions that one factor – say, changing diet instead of exercising – can be a panacea for obesity.

THE FIRST

AMENDMENT

IT’S YOUR WRITE Taxpayers need a break

To the Editor: Who is watching the growing fund balances in the general assistance (temporary aid for the poor) programs of McHenry County’s 17 townships? Evidently, no one. In 2014, Burton, Alden, Riley, Seneca, Coral, Hartland, Greenwood, Dorr, Richmond and Hebron townships, had a total fund balance of $858,105. Their total expenditures amounted to $84,000. On average, these 10 townships have enough money on hand to operate for more than 10 years without receiving any additional revenues. Burton Township, the smallest township of Illinois’ 1,433 townships, spent $495 in aid last year. Burton, with a fund balance of $104,821, could last for 211 years and seven months without additional revenues. The Burton Township supervisor is paid $15,000 to deliver $495 in aid. Coral Township has a fund balance of $35,272, enough to last for more than 19 years. Township supervisors have one mandated duty: general assistance. The above supervisors were paid $179,300 in salary, plus benefits, to dole out $84,942 in aid. Without counting the cost of overhead, many townships spend more than $3 for every $1 of aid.

Burton Township spent $30 for every $1 of aid. Excessive township fund balances are opportunities for theft, fraud and taxpayer abuse. McHenry County Citizens for Township Consolidation have a plan to consolidate the county’s 17 townships into six townships, which would save money, increase efficiencies and eliminate bloated general assistance fund balances. Township consolidation is a good idea. Taxpayers need a break. Support township consolidation. Bob Anderson Wonder Lake

Thanks to representatives

To the Editor: On July 29, Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law Public Act 990171. This bill amends the Illinois Highway Code so funds road districts may spend on nondedicated subdivision roads can be derived from other road district sources, not only motor fuel tax dollars as identified in the original legislation. These dollars may not exceed the amount that would have been allocated under the motor fuel tax fund formula, but it does remove the difficult IDOT auditing requirement from the process.

HOW TO SOUND OFF We welcome original letters on public issues. Letters must include the author’s full name, home address and day and evening telephone numbers. We limit letters to 250 words and one published letter every 30 days. All letters are subject to editing

This small but important clarification will simplify the process of providing maintenance services for hundreds of our McHenry County residents who live along these nondedicated roads. Our sincere thanks go to state Rep. David McSweeney and state Sen. Pamela Althoff for shepherding this important legislation through a challenging process. Thank you both for your efforts on behalf of Algonquin Township, McHenry Township and Nunda Township residents. We appreciate your hard work, lobbying and leadership. We are indeed fortunate to have such an effective representative team working for McHenry County in Springfield. Robert J. Miler

use wisdom in our actions. If the death of Cecil the Lion, creating joy for one person but sadness for many, causes us to reflect on how we treat farm animals, then can we take the next step and look at the killing of young men and women in battle as senseless also? I am sure that mothers and fathers of dead and severely wounded soldiers love their children as much as we mourn the killing of a sacred lion. We indeed honor and respect our fallen soldiers and the soldiers who come back with missing arms or legs or with tragic war trauma in their lives. Nevertheless, with 55 percent of our national budget going to the military, wars will not stop. Killing will not stop. Power and greed will not stop until we use our wisdom to find another way.

Clinton proposes another education subsidy If elected president, Hillary Clinton has promised to spend $350 billion to make college “more affordable.” The U.S. already has an $18 trillion debt (and growing by the day), but Clinton wants to add to it. That’s not affordable. Too many young people are graduating from universities unable to find jobs or are underemployed. Slate.com references a 2014 study of youth joblessness by the Economic Policy Institute. It found “... roughly 8.5 percent of college graduates between the ages of 21 and 24 were unemployed. That figure is based on a 12-month average between April 2013 and March 2014, so it’s not a perfect snapshot of the here and now. Still, it tells us that the post-collegiate job market, just like the rest of the labor market, certainly isn’t nearly back to normal. (For comparison, the unemployment rate for all college grads over the age of 25 is 3.3 percent, which is also still higher than normal.) More worrisomely, the EPI finds that a total of 16.8 percent of

VIEWS Cal Thomas new grads are ‘underemployed,’ meaning they’re either jobless and hunting for work; working part time because they can’t find a full-time job; or want a job, have looked within the past year, but have now given up on searching.” The problem isn’t just at the university level; it’s at the jobs level where Obamacare, higher taxes and overregulation have reduced incentives to hire people, or forced many to accept part-time work. When I entered American University as a freshman in 1960, tuition was $450 a semester. Today you probably can’t get out of the bookstore for that amount. I received no federal subsidies. My father paid for the first year, and I paid for the rest by working and getting a small student loan from the bank, which I quickly repaid.

While federal help for education has been around since the mid-19th century, most notably with the GI Bill after World War II, direct grants and other federal help to universities began to increase in the late ’60s, leading to a rise in the cost of tuition. As University of Colorado law professor Paul F. Campos noted recently in The New York Times, “... over the past 35 years, college tuition at public universities has nearly quadrupled ...” Campos rejects the view promoted by some that federal subsidies are necessary because of cuts at the state level: “... far from being caused by funding cuts, the astonishing rise in college tuition correlates closely with a huge increase in public subsidies for higher education. If over the past three decades car prices had gone up as fast as tuition, the average new car would cost more than $80,000.” U.S. education in the 21st century is based on a 20thcentury model. No one ought to be “entitled” to tax money to go to expensive schools such as

Harvard or Yale, or even public universities. Community colleges and the online universities that offer students flexibility to work and study cost less and provide necessary knowledge or trade skills for the job market. Athletics and the rest of the university culture may be fine for those who can afford it, but for students and parents who can’t, there are many more options than when I attended college. Hillary Clinton’s proposal is a vote-buying effort that will add one more entitlement to an economy that can’t afford it. Given the sharp decline of the Chinese yuan, it looks like China, the main U.S. debt holder, may have reached its lending limit. If American politicians can’t be an example of what living within one’s means looks like, how can we expect younger people to embrace a Puritan ethic that served us well before envy, greed and entitlement took over?

STATE&NATION SUNDAY Soldier’s journey to heal spotlights ‘soul wounds’ The ASSOCIATED PRESS

AP photo

Retired U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Marshall Powell sits March 16 at the dining room table and pauses while talking about his emotionally traumatic experiences serving as a military nurse in northern Iraq in 2007, during one of the bloodiest years of the conflict, at Powell’s home in Crescent, Okla. Powell recalled the chaos after a bomb attack one August day in 2007: the vehicles roaring up for hours to the Army hospital bringing Iraqi civilians covered in blood, the hallways overflowing with wounded and dead. stood frozen in shock, unable to offer aid to a fellow soldier whose legs were severed in an explosion in Afghanistan. A Marine whose junior comrade was fatally shot after he convinced him to switch posts in Iraq. A Navy man who beat an Iraqi citizen in anger. Like Powell, they’d spent years torturing themselves over acts that tortured their conscience. “Souls in anguish” is how some experts describe this psychological scar of war now being identified as “moral injury.” Unlike post-traumatic stress disorder, which is based on fear from feeling one’s life threatened, moral injury produces guilt and shame from something done or witnessed that goes against one’s values or may even be a crime. While the idea of warriors feeling remorse over battlefield horrors is not new, moral injury has gained more attention following the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as mental health providers point to it as a reason why veterans aren’t improving with PTSD treatments. The Navy now runs one of the military’s first residential treatment programs that addresses the problem – the one Powell found.

Still, debate persists over whether moral injury is a part of PTSD or its own separate condition. There is no formal medical diagnosis for it. Psychiatrists who treat moral injury believe it has contributed to the suicide rate among veterans, who account for 1 out of every 5 suicides in the United States. And they see danger in ignoring it because its treatment is distinct. PTSD sufferers can find relief with medication and counseling that encourages reliving the triggering incident to work through fear. But if the person considers what happened to be morally wrong, reliving it may only reaffirm that belief. Counselors have found the self-punishment stops when veterans learn the deed does not define who they are. Veterans, the experts said, find comfort in sharing with each other, because only those who’ve experienced war can truly understand the complexity of morality on the battlefield. “The pain brings everyone together and creates a bond that no one can break,” said Elvin Carey of Murrieta, California, whose fellow Marine died after the two switched posts.

BRIEFS 2 parachutists injured at annual Chicago show

CHICAGO – Two parachutists were seriously injured Saturday during the Chicago Air & Water Show, including one who witnesses say clipped the top of a high-rise apartment building and fell to the ground in the city’s Gold Coast neighborhood. The two men were taken in serious-to-critical condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital on Saturday morning, Fire Department spokesman Juan Hernandez said. Witnesses told first responders at least one of the parachutists collided with a building in the upscale lakefront district, but the Fire Department had not confirmed the accounts. The other parachutist was found on North Avenue Beach, near the main viewing area for the show, Hernandez said. He had no other details on the nature of the injuries or what went wrong.

FAA: Technical issues cause of flight delays

WASHINGTON – Air traffic was snarled and passengers’ tempers frayed Saturday as many flights to and from airports throughout a large swath of the Northeast stretching from New York down to the Carolinas were delayed or cancelled. The Federal Aviation Administration blamed the problem on “technical issues” at an air traffic control center in Leesburg, Va. Around 4 p.m., the agency said the problem had been resolved, and that officials were working to lift any remaining orders to hold planes on the ground. Delays began building about 9:45 a.m., according to FlightRadar24, a flight monitoring website. Flights bound for airports in the Washington area were some of the most affected, including Washington’s Reagan National Airport and Dulles International, as well as Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and Charlotte-Douglas International Airport in North Carolina. FAA officials had no immediate estimate of how many flights were affected, but

FlightRadar24 spokesman Ian Petchenik said it was certainly in the hundreds. The agency said in a statement the snarl was the result of an “automation problem” at the Leesburg center. The center handles high-altitude air traffic for the affected region. The problem wasn’t believed to be caused by any accident or hacking.

Wife files suit in death of husband in tent collapse

WOOD DALE – The wife of a man killed when a tent collapsed at a Wood Dale festival has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit. A local news report said Nicole Nincic filed the lawsuit Tuesday in Cook County court. She alleges organizers of the Wood Dale Prairie Fest and a tent vendor should not have herded visitors under a poorly secured tent Aug. 2, as a powerful storm approached. Steven Nincic, 35, was struck and killed by a falling tent pole; 22 others were injured. Three of the injured are included as plaintiffs in the complaint, which names McCook-based Classic Party Rentals and Chicago Special Events Management as defendants. The lawsuit seeks a minimum of $50,000.

Health system seeks state OK for new hospital

ROCKFORD – A northern Illinois health system plans to build a new 188-bed hospital in Rockford and is in the process of submitting paperwork on its proposal to a review board. Rockford-based MercyRockford Health System announced this week it wants to build a $400 million facility near an Interstate 90 exit. Officials say the hospital would serve northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. Health system spokeswoman Kristina DeCoster said an application will be filed Monday with the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board. Approval would allow construction to begin late next year. Under the plan, the existing Rockford Memorial Hospital would still offer care, including

Officers, attorney among 9 arrested in man’s death

SAN FRANCISCO – Three current and former California Highway Patrol officers, a prominent criminal defense lawyer and five other people were arrested Friday in connection with the disappearance and killing of a Central Valley man. The nine people played a part in the killing of Korey Kauffman, 26, or helped cover it up and mislead investigators, law enforcement officials said at a news conference Friday in Modesto, California. Kauffman was reported missing in April 2012. His body was found by hunters in August 2013 in rural Mariposa County near Yosemite National Park. Investigators with the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department said Modesto attorney Frank Carson orchestrated the killing and enlisted the help of two brothers who own a liquor store in Turlock. Carson believed Kauffman and others were stealing valuable antiques from storage containers on his property and he wanted to stop the thefts by sending a message, investigators said.

Officer’s ‘Michael Brown bonus’ post investigated

FERGUSON, Mo. – St. Louis County police are investigating a Facebook post in which one of its officers discusses how he spent his “annual Michael Brown bonus.” The Guardian reported officer Todd Bakula posted on his Facebook page that he took his wife to a bed and breakfast using money earned for staffing the protests in Ferguson, where the unarmed Brown was fatally shot by a white officer last year. St. Louis County Sgt. Shawn McGuire told The Associated Press that Bakula is a patrolman and the post would be investigated. He also said the department understands the post is “controversial.”

SAN DIEGO – “It was just another day in Mosul,” the soldier began, his voice shaking. Sgt. 1st Class Marshall Powell took a deep breath. He couldn’t look at the other three servicemen in the group therapy session. He’d rarely spoken about his secret, the story of the little girl who wound up in his hospital during the war in Iraq, where he served as an Army nurse. Her chest had been blown apart, and her brown eyes implored him for help. Whenever he’d thought of her since, “I killed the girl,” echoed in his head. Powell kept his eyes glued to the pages he’d written. He recalled the chaos after a bombing that August day in 2007, the vehicles roaring up with Iraqi civilians covered in blood. Around midnight, Powell took charge of the area housing those with little chance of survival. There, amid the mangled bodies, he saw her. She was tiny, maybe 6 years old, lying on the floor. Her angelic face reminded him of his niece back home in Oklahoma. Back in the therapy room, saying it all out loud, Powell’s eyes began to fill just at the memory of her. “I couldn’t let her lay there and suffer,” he said. A doctor had filled a syringe with painkillers. Powell pushed dose after dose into her IV. “She smiled at me,” he told the others in the room, “and I smiled back. Then she took her last gasp of air.” Before the war, Sgt. Powell’s very core was built on God and faith and saving lives, not doing anything that could end one. He lost his purpose when the girl died, and he found himself in a nondescript room on a San Diego naval base trying desperately to save his own crumbling existence. Surrounding him that day were veterans who had suffered as he suffered: An Army staff sergeant who

TIANJIN, China – New small explosions rocked a disaster zone in the Chinese port of Tianjin on Saturday as teams scrambled to clear dangerous chemical contamination and found several more bodies to bring the death toll to 104 in massive blasts earlier in the week. Angry relatives of missing firefighters stormed a government news conference to demand any information on their loved ones, who have not been seen since a fire and rapid succession of blasts late Wednesday at a warehouse for hazardous chemicals in a mostly industrial area. The death toll in the ensuing inferno included at least 21 firefighters – making the disaster the deadliest for Chinese firefighters in more than six decades. An unknown number of firefighters remain missing, and a total of 720 people were injured in the disaster in

Tianjin, 75 miles east of Beijing. One additional survivor was found Saturday. Two Chinese news outlets, including the state-run The Paper, reported that the warehouse was storing 700 tons of sodium cyanide – 70 times more than it should have been holding at one time – and that authorities were rushing to clean it up. Sodium cyanide is a toxic chemical that can form a flammable gas upon contact with water. Authorities also detected the highly toxic hydrogen cyanide in the air at levels slightly above safety levels at two locations in the afternoon, The Paper cited Tianjin environmental official Wen Wurui as saying. But the contamination was no longer detected Saturday, and there was no obvious impact on anybody in the area, the report said. The disaster has raised questions about whether dangerous chemicals were being stored too close to residential

compounds, and whether firefighters may have triggered the blasts, possibly because they were unaware the warehouse contained chemicals combustible on contact with water. The massive explosions Wednesday happened about 40 minutes after reports of a fire at the warehouse and after an initial wave of firefighters arrived and, reportedly, doused some of the area with water. Authorities on Saturday pulled out one survivor from a shipping container, state media reported. His identity was not immediately known. Television video showed the man being carried out on a stretcher by a group of soldiers wearing gas masks. Authorities were keeping residents, journalists and other people not involved in the disaster response outside a 1.8-mile radius around the site of the explosions in what media reports said was an operation to clean up the sodium cyanide.

Emperor offers ‘remorse’ on WWII anniversary

TOKYO – Emperor Akihito expressed rare “deep remorse” over his country’s wartime actions in an address Saturday marking the 70th anniversary of Japan’s World War II surrender, a day after the prime minister fell short of apologizing in his own words to the victims of Japanese aggression. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, meanwhile, stayed away from a contentious Yasukuni shrine that honors war criminals among other war dead. He instead prayed and laid flowers at a nearby national cemetery for unnamed fallen soldiers ahead of the annual ceremony at Tokyo’s Budokan hall. That ceremony started with a moment of silence at noon to mark the radio announcement by Emperor Hirohito, Akihito’s father, of Japan’s surrender on Aug. 15, 1945. “Reflecting on our past and

Italy says at least 40 migrants dead at sea

bearing in mind the feelings of deep remorse over the last war, I earnestly hope that the ravages of war will never be repeated,” Akihito said in his speech. Japanese media said it was the first time he had used the words “deep remorse” in reference to the war in his annual war-end anniversary speech. Akihito also emphasized that Japan’s peace and prosperity stand on “the people’s tireless endeavors and their earnest desire for peace,” and renewed his war-renouncing pledge. Even though they are subtle and still rather neutral, remarks by the emperor on Japan’s wartime past in recent years have caught attention, often portrayed in the media to contrast Abe’s nationalist and hawkish image, especially as he pushes to give Japan’s military an expanded role and change Japan’s pacifist constitution.

ROME – At least 40 migrants died Saturday in the hold of an overcrowded smuggling boat in the Mediterranean Sea north of Libya, apparently killed by fuel fumes, and about 320 others aboard were saved by the Italian navy, the rescue ship’s commander said. Migrants by the tens of thousands are braving the perilous journey across the Mediterranean this year, hoping to reach Europe and be granted asylum. They are fleeing war, persecution and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and Asia. “The dead were found in the hold,” said Cmdr. Massimo Tozzi, speaking from the navy ship Cigala Fulgosi while the rescue still was ongoing. Asked by RaiNews24 how the migrants died, Tozzi said, “It appears to be from inhaling exhaust fumes.”

Bears’ White lies create culture of mistrust BOURBONNAIS – Let’s start with this: Since the Bears announced that Kevin White needs surgery for a stress fracture in his left shin that will cost him the bulk of the 2015 season and quite possibly all of it, I have spoken with several other NFL teams Kevin White to confirm their Rookie may predraft evaluations miss season of the young man. because of All assured me stress fracture their predraft medin shin. icals on White were absolutely clean and they had him as a

top-10 prospect on their draft boards. Asked Saturday whether he had any inkling of this problem before the draft, White said adamantly, “No, none whatsoever. I got checked out head to toe, and it’s all clear.” This is not Chris Williams with the 14th pick in the first round in 2008 when the Bears blew the medical and the scouting report. This is not bad work by a rookie general manager and his staff. This is bad luck, nothing less and nothing more. Asked whether there were any second thoughts on his part as to how the White injury and the mystery that has surrounded it since training

cautious. “To me, it was kind of black and white. If he’s having no pain, let’s go; let’s build him up slowly. Any type of setback, let’s do the right thing here. To me, hey, it’s unfortunate, but there’s clarity in this is the surgery that he needs to have. It’ll be successful.” Bears fans can only hope Pace is right. Unfortunately, the Bears’ issues at the wide receiver position are not the only problem the White revelation exposed. Meeting the media shortly after Pace broke the story Saturday, coach John Fox was asked why he misled

everyone about the nature of White’s injury. “I think, me personally, we tell you the body part and that’s all we have to tell you. We’re not doctors, and stick to that.” When pushed on what the team stands to gain by withholding the full truth, Fox replied testily, “I don’t know. You guys figure that out. I just know that, by league, we’re required to give you a body part, unless it’s a quarterback or kicker, then we don’t even have to tell you which side. “I’ve been doing it for 14 years now. That’s the way we do it.”

GIRLS GOLF: SEASON PREVIEW

High expectations for CLC co-op 5 to watch MACKENZIE HAHN Richmond-Burton, jr. Hahn, a 2014 Northwest Herald first-team selection, finished 10th at the Class A state tournament and was strongly considered for Northwest Herald Girls Golfer of the Year, which went to teammate and Central Missouri State freshman Blake Betke. The dynamic duo led R-B to a perfect season in the Big Northern Conference. Hahn finished second at the Genoa-Kingston Regional, which the Rockets won by 68 strokes. BRITTANY REID Crystal Lake Central co-op, sr. Reid, a 2014 Northwest Herald All-Area honorable mention selection, dominated the McHenry County Junior Golf Association this summer, winning the girls senior division and 13 of 14 events. The Cary-Grove senior was one of four Tigers to place in the top five of the Fox Valley Conference Tournament, finishing fourth as the Tigers clinched back-to-back titles. LAUREN KALAMARAS Crystal Lake Central co-op, sr. Kalamaras, a 2014 Northwest Herald All-Area second-team selection, is one of three seniors returning for the defending FVC champions, who finished undefeated in conference play. She took fifth at the conference meet and was third overall at the Crystal Lake Central Regional, which the Tigers won by 29 strokes. Kalamaras, a senior at Cary-Grove, also posted the second-best score for her team at sectionals. SOPHIA ARCHOS Marian Central, jr. Archos, a 2014 Northwest Herald All-Area second-team selection, was Marian’s No. 1 player as a sophomore and led the Hurricanes as they transitioned to the East Suburban Catholic Conference, finishing sixth as a team in their first season. In the ESCC Tournament, Archos had a top-10 finish and was one of two Hurricanes named all-conference. She played in 11 Illinois Junior Golf Association events this summer, finishing top 10 in five. DANIELA MIRANDA Woodstock North, jr. Miranda, a 2014 Northwest Herald All-Area second-team selection, flew under the radar last season as one of two girls to play on the Woodstock co-op boys golf team, which she will do again this year. She was all-conference, placing ninth at the FVC Tournament, and advanced all the way to the Class A Watseka Sectional where she finished four shots short of making her first trip to state.

yle McCaughn doesn’t want to mess up a good thing. When the former Crystal Lake South girls basketball coach heard Kathy Speaker was retiring after 11 seasons as coach of the Crystal Lake Central co-op girls golf team, he jumped at the chance to coach at the varsity level again and applied for the position without hesitation. “It’s something that I’ve thought about for quite a long time, for quite a number of years,” said McCaughn, who coached freshman boys soccer last fall and freshman girls soccer in the spring. “When I was the assistant athletic director [at Crystal Lake South], I always thought it would be good to get a girls

We never seemed to have enough interest just from South to get that going.” After 13 years as the Gators’ girls basketball coach, McCaughn stepped down after the 2013-14 season. At the same time, he was always looking for a new challenge. The Crystal Lake Central co-op team, also made up of golfers from Crystal Lake South and Cary-Grove, provided that opportunity. “Knowing how successful the co-op program has been, I have high expectations for our girls – I don’t know why we wouldn’t,” McCaughn said. “I’ll do my best to help out with the mental part of the game,

try to help them learn their way around the course a little bit, but I won’t mess with their swings because they have a lot of nice swings.” A coaching switch for the Tigers, the defending Fox Valley Conference and county meet champions, isn’t the only change. Central lost its top two scorers, Northwest Herald All-Area first-team selections Larisa Luloff and Emily Jean, to graduation – testing Central’s depth as the Tigers look toward another successful season. Returning for the Tigers are all-conference golfers Lauren Kalamaras and Brittany Reid, both seniors at Cary-Grove. Each provided top-five finishes at last year’s Fox Valley Conference Tournament, which Central won by 46 strokes.

QB Sullivan’s wait ends Cubs extend winning streak to 9 By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com CARY – J.P. Sullivan spent the past two varsity football seasons at Cary-Grove on the sideline charting plays, taking mental notes, never far from Trojans coach Brad Seaburg or starting J.P. Sullivan quarterback Jason Gregoire. If Gregoire had been injured, Sul-

livan would have been ready to step in. Mainly, it was tutelage for the time Sullivan himself would become starter. “Jason was my biggest mentor,” Sullivan said. “Being with him every practice the whole time, seeing how he carried himself – he played varsity for almost three years. He’s basically a coach out on the field and he’s a big part of where I am now.” Sullivan, a senior, gets his chance to run C-G’s triple-option offense, a system opponents have struggled to

On Aug. 3, Cary-Grove and Illinois State graduate Eric Aguilera recorded a career-high six hits in Single-A Advanced Inland Empire’s 17-3 victory over Lake Elsinore at San Manuel Stadium. The 25-yearold, who is a part of the Los Angeles Angels’ minor league system, Eric Aguilera singled five times and doubled and picked up four RBIs. Aguilera’s career game is part of a career year. This season, before Saturday’s game, he was hitting .334 with a .399 on-base percentage and a .535 slugging percentage – all career bests.

I squared up one ball. With the exception of my second at-bat where I doubled off the wall, they were all squeezing out a hit with two strikes. I beat a shift on one. I tapped one over the third baseman’s head. To go 6 for 6, it definitely takes a good approach and solid fundamentals, but there’s definitely a lot of luck that goes into it.

I think that was my first six-hit game. I’ve had some good series,

Johnsburg girls golf brings back almost its entire roster • GIRLS GOLF Continued from page C1 The Tigers went on to win a regional title but had a disappointing showing at sectionals, finishing ninth out of 12 teams with no individual state qualifiers. “It’s interesting because we’re going into the season not knowing how things are going to fly,” said Reid, who recently won Player of the Year in the McHenry County Junior Golf Association’s girls senior division. “I know a lot of people are look-

ing at our team to lead the way. Last year, we didn’t make it to state, so this year we’re hoping to make it there and really make our last year (as seniors) count.” With the departure of Luloff and Jean, the FVC figures to be a much closer pack. Jacobs co-op (with Hampshire) took third in the conference tournament and returns three of its top scorers, including seniors Sydney Goll and Julia Beaugureau and junior Nicole Durben, as well as Stephanie Fiorentino and Emily Klein. Huntley was fourth in the FVC but has a strong group returning. Ju-

nior Caroline Giorgi and sophomore Katie Weidner made it to sectionals last season, while Nicole Gordus won Player of the Year in the MCJGA’s girls junior division this summer. Junior sisters Maddie Ogden and Hannah Ogden and senior Hannah Altman lead McHenry, and Prairie Ridge will have a lot of new faces with only one varsity member returning: senior Makenna Schmitz. Dundee-Crown lost two to graduation, but senior Kylie Kost returns as team captain. Richmond-Burton dominated the Big Northern Conference last year,

sweeping through the BNC East and winning the conference tournament. The Rockets will have a new look, however, after losing Northwest Herald Girls Golfer of the Year Blake Betke and four others from their Class A state team to graduation. Junior standout Mackenzie Hahn, who finished 10th at the state tournament, will lead R-B in what coach Brandon Creason is calling a rebuilding year. Johnsburg returns almost its entire roster from last season’s sectional team, including Emma Johnson (all-conference) and Jenna Seaver

(all-conference honorable mention), while Harvard is in a numbers crunch with only Sarah Brookner and Elizabeth Wright returning so far. Sophia Archos, who played in many high-profile tournaments this summer, will lead Marian Central in its second year in the East Suburban Catholic Conference. Archos was all-conference last year for the Hurricanes, who also return Maria Mercurio, Mia Belle McNeill and Hannah Gillespie. Erin Carver takes over for Marian’s girls team after coaching the boys for 10 years.

GOLF: PGA CHAMPIONSHIP

NATIONAL LEAGUE

Day holds lead; Spieth makes late charge By DOUG FERGUSON The Associated Press SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – With six straight 3s on his card, Jason Day looked determined as ever Saturday to finally get that first major. He had a 6-under-par 66 and built a two-shot lead in the PGA Championship, the third straight major he has at least a share of the lead going into the final round. One look at the leaderboard at the name right behind him – Jordan Spieth – made it clear it won’t be easy. Spieth was five shots behind and had two holes to play when he capped off a stunning charge along the back nine at Whistling Straits with six birdies over his last eight holes, including three in a row at the end that gave him a 7-under 65

Jason Day takes a two-stroke lead into the final round of the PGA Championship on Sunday at Whistling Straits in Sheboygan, Wis. to get into the final group. “Very pleased to have a chance to win another major,”

Spieth said. He is trying to join Tiger Woods (2000) and Ben Hogan (1953) as the only players to win three majors in one year, and Spieth hopes to rely on his experience of having already won the Masters and U.S. Open this year. Day showed plenty of moxie, though. After making a double bogey that cut his lead to one shot, and then failing to birdie the par-5 16th, he poured in a 25-foot birdie putt and pumped both arms to show how much it meant. “One more day left,” Day said before heading off to the practice range before the sun set on this wild day along Lake Michigan. “I got to keep pushing forward, keep grinding, keep doing the best I can out

there and see how it goes tomorrow.” Saturday featured abundant sunshine and endless action, starting in the dead calm of the morning when Matt Jones finished the storm-delayed second round with two birdies for a two-shot lead. In the hunt at a major for the first time, Jones kept his cool even when his drive landed in a hospitality tent left of the ninth fairway and he chose to play off the blue carpet, over the white fence and just off the green. But he imploded at the end, dropping four shots over the last four holes for a 73. Day looked like he was headed that direction. One moment it looked as though the 27-yearold Australian was pulling away. The next minute he was pulling himself together.

He played a six-hole stretch around the turn in 6 under, which included a 15-foot eagle at No. 11 for his first lead of the round. When he stuffed another approach close on the 14th hole for birdie, he was 16 under. One swing changed everything. He tugged a 5-iron into a bunker left of the 15th green and was surprised by the amount of sand. The first shot didn’t make it up the slope and rolled back into the sand, and Day wound up with a double bogey right about the time Spieth shifted into another gear. This was hardly a two-man race. Branden Grace of South Africa holed a bunker shot for birdie on the 18th hole for a 64 to finish three shots behind. Justin Rose also was three shots behind.

HORSE RACING: ARLINGTON MILLION

The Pizza Man first Illinois-bred to win By LARRY HAMEL For the Sun-Times ARLINGTON HEIGHTS – The rain stopped and the sun emerged just in time to bathe Arlington Park’s favorite son in the glow of victory. Did The Pizza Man belong in the Arlington Million? The answer proved to be an emphatic yes after the local favorite won the Grade I turf classic by a neck over Big Blue Kitten, becoming the first Illinois-bred to hit the board in the track’s signature race. When race-caller John Dooley called The Pizza Man’s name as he surged to the lead, a packed crowd let out a roar that must have been heard at all the way to O’Hare Airport. About 20 minutes before the Million went to post Saturday afternoon, Mother Nature seemingly had sent an omen by halting the heavy rain that had fallen during the running of the two other Grade I turf events on the Million Day card. The Pizza Man then made his own moment in the sun, rallying to the lead in the stretch and holding off the late bid of Big Blue Kitten, covering the 1¼-mile distance in 2:02.20 on a turf course rated as yielding. The runner-up’s owner, Ken Ramsey, had questioned the wisdom of the winner’s connections for entering him in the Million rather than starting him in the American St. Leger marathon on the undercard, a race he won last year. “Normally we don’t take things personally, but we felt that we belonged and that [Ramsey’s comments] weren’t fair to the horse or the rider [Arlington regular Florent Geroux],” owner Rich Papiese said. “Truth is, we felt we could have won the Million last year, but we were very happy to have won the St. Leger.” The Pizza Man, sent off as the 5.90-1 fourth choice in the betting, indeed proved to be the horse for the course, winning for the 10th time in 13 starts (with a second and a third) on the grass at the northwest suburban oval. The victory made the 6-year-old gelding eligible for the Breeders’ Cup Turf. Papiese indicated that starting him in that race was a strong possibility. “This was a more emotional

Hard to ignore

Schwarber joins Rookie of Year chase By GORDON WITTENMYER gwittenmyer@suntimes.com CHICAGO – One of the more popular pastimes around the Cubs these days is giving rookie slugger Kyle Schwarber a nickname for what many assume will be a long, glorious and powerful career on the North Side. Schwarb-inator. Babe. Spanky. Give it a few weeks, and maybe you can just call him Roy. It would take a serious finishing kick to his season, but if Schwarber even approximates over the last seven weeks what he’s done during his first five, don’t rule out a shot at the Rookie of the Year award. “I don’t see why not,” teammate Anthony Rizzo said. Schwarber, who was playing in college for Indiana barely a year ago, has played only 32 games through Friday and is part of a historically deep rookie class that happens to include three teammates, including All-Star third baseman Kris

Bryant. Even if he plays every game the rest of the season, between catching and playing left field, he would wind up with 80 games. But if he keeps up this kind of production for a team that stays in the playoff hunt, there certainly is precedent for his candidacy. Eight hitters without enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting title have won the award. Four with fewer than 90 games played have won it, including two in the past 10 seasons. And then there’s Willie McCovey. The Hall of Fame first baseman debuted July 30, 1959, with a four-hit game against the Phillies and never looked back. He hit .354 with 13 homers and a 1.085 OPS in only 52 games and swept the Rookie of the Year voting in the National League. Granted, Schwarber came off the bench in his debut June 16. And it took him until his second day in the big leagues – in his starting debut in Cleveland – before he had his first

four-hit game. But the powerful left-handed hitter is on a pace that would give him 20 homers, 65 RBIs and a 1.015 OPS. “Anytime you come up and have that amount of production and the length of time that he was here, the writers are going to look at that,” said Cubs Hall of Famer Billy Williams, the 1961 Rookie of the Year. “Nobody else was close. Schwarber, he’s got another month and a half to go, and he could put up those kind of numbers, too.” Part of McCovey’s attraction that year was – like Schwarber – his impact on a team that made a run at the NL pennant. Unlike Schwarber, McCovey had a relatively weak rookie class. Schwarber’s class includes two players who made the AllStar team while he was in the minors: Dodgers center fielder Joc Pederson and Bryant. But nobody in that class is as hot as Schwarber has been since he rejoined the team after the All-Star break, after his impressive weeklong June debut.

He had the better horse today.” In other turf stakes on Million Day: • The Grade I Beverly D. for fillies-and-mares provided a controversial finish. Secret Gesture (1:57.36) crossed the wire first in the $700,000 13⁄16-miler, but an incident in the stretch in which she lugged out into the path of Stephanie’s Kitten prompted a lengthy inquiry by the stewards. Secret Gesture was disqualified from first to third. Irish-bred Watsdachances (a 9-1 long shot saddled by noted Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien) was moved up from second to first and Stephanie’s Kitten was made the runner-up. • Minutes before the start of the Grade I Secretariat, the heavens opened. Irish-bred Highland Reel thrived in the deluge, roaring to a 5¼-length triumph in the $450,000 test over 1¼ miles for 3-year-olds. Highland Reel (2:02.26), the 2.40-1 second favorite, cut the fractions before uncorking a powerful surge in the late going. O’Brien won the Secretariat for the fourth time. • Irish-bred Lucky Speed, the 3-1 second favorite in the betting, made a four-wide move and was hustled down the stretch by jockey Andrasch Starke to post a threequarter-length victory in the Grade III $350,000 American St. Leger for 3-year-olds-andup. The 5-year-old covered the 111⁄16-mile distance in 2:46.50.

On Sunday, the Cubs will try for their first 10-game winning streak since a 12-game run in 2001. Arrieta (14-6) improved to 8-1 in his past 11 starts, allowing three runs and five hits in 62⁄3 innings. Jorge Soler had two hits and two RBIs. Addison Russell doubled twice and scored twice. Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and Dexter Fowler each added two hits, and the Cubs had 12 in all. “They made some mistakes,” Sox manager Robin Ventura said. “We didn’t cap-

italize on them, and we made some mistakes and they capitalized. They put some stuff in play, and they scored when we made some mistakes.” Sox starter Jose Quintana (6-10) lasted six innings, allowing three runs and seven hits. Rizzo and Soler had RBI singles in a three-run seventh that saw the North Siders break open a 3-2 game. Hector Rondon worked the ninth for his 21st save in 25 chances. “It is awesome,” said Schwarber, who had a beer can thrown at him while chasing a ball in the left-field corner. “We have a really good ballclub. We’re playing to our potential right now.” Adam LaRoche and Alex-

ei Ramirez cut the lead to 3-2 with back-to-back two-out doubles in the sixth before the Cubs broke it open in the seventh. The Cubs’ David Ross singled leading off against Jake Petricka and scored from second on a wild throw by Ramirez as the shortstop tried to turn an inning-ending double-play against Schwarber. Ventura, who thought his team was short-changed by the officials the past two games, was tossed by plate umpire Joe West after Rizzo’s RBI single against Zach Duke. It was Ventura’s second ejection this season. Soler followed with an RBI single of his own against Matt Albers that made it 6-2.

How can we believe anything Bears say? • ARKUSH Continued from page C1 OK, here’s what I’ve figured out. Had Fox and Pace told us the day we arrived in Bourbonnais that White had a mild stress fracture and the recommended course of action was rest, and if that failed, surgery, there would be no controversy, no frustration, no mistrust and far less disappointment today. Also, White would not have been forced to lie to reporters 24 hours earlier, telling them he was fine and ready to go. My limited exposure to the young man tells me that kind of deceit does not come to him naturally and didn’t come to him easily. There have been rumblings spilling out of training camp since we arrived of a concerned media unhappy with its lack of access. I have stayed out of the conversation because I’m sure many of you have taken it simply as whiny, lazy sportswriters and broadcasters complaining. Now you see the real problem. Alshon Jeffery showed up

Pace tells us it’s not serious and Jeffery won’t play this week in Indianapolis, but he’ll be ready for the regular-season opener. Fox says he’s day-to-day. Sound familiar? Why should we believe Jeffery isn’t injured much more seriously? Why doesn’t Bears management care what we believe? I cannot envision any competitive advantage Bears opponents would have gained had we been told the truth about White. There is reason to believe Pace would really like to clean this mess but that Fox prefers to do it his way. I do not believe the media and fans are entitled to or need to know everything going on with the team. I do believe we are entitled at a minimum to the truth. It should be interesting to see what happens next.

BEARS NOTES

McClellin snaps Cutler’s INT streak By ARTHUR ARKUSH aarkush@chicagofootball.com BOURBONNAIS – Three of the biggest surprises of Bears camp came full circle Saturday, when it was announced Kevin White will begin the season on the physically unable to perform list with a stress fracture in his left shin. The other two involved the continued development of Shea McClellin at inside linebacker and quarterback Jay Cutler’s first camp interception. McClellin said he was “laying in the weeds” when he undercut Cutler’s pass intended for Martellus Bennett, snapping Cutler’s streak of 11 interception-free practices during team drills. Cutler never saw McClellin, according to the inside linebacker, but McClellin’s strong play continues to catch the eye of coach John Fox. “I thought he did good. He’s getting better every day,” Fox

said of McClellin’s first start at inside linebacker in Thursday night’s preseason opener. “He’s a kid who cares. He works very hard at it. It was a position switch for him early on. I think a good position switch at this point. But he continues to improve like we expect him to.” Thursday marked McClellin’s first opportunity to call plays in a game. He told reporters Saturday that debut included the headsets not working during the first series. “It was actually interesting. The microphone went out as soon as I got out there, so we had to deal with signals. That was an experience for the first game, but it went well overall,” he said. Thursday’s standouts: After film review, Fox singled out two rookies, both of whom saw their roles increase upon returning to Bourbonnais on Saturday. Fifth-round safety Adrian

Amos replaced Brock Vereen with the first-team defense. “He’s earned where he is,” Fox said. “I don’t know if that’s the way it’ll stay. It’s not where you start the race it’s where you finish it.” Undrafted linebacker John Timu’s juggling interception earned Fox’s praise and, it appeared, increased special teams opportunities Saturday. Fox also noted cornerback Alan Ball and nickel Demontre Hurst, the latter also earning chances at safety. Injury update: Alshon Jeffery (calf) is still on crutches and won’t play against Indianapolis on Saturday, but general manger Ryan Pace indicated it “isn’t long term” and his Week 1 status isn’t in jeopardy. Tight end Chris Pantale (illness) and running back Daniel Thomas (knee) missed practice, while backup guard Jason Weaver departed briefly because of a stinger.

Why have a dehumidifier? Most homes today have central A/C systems that allow us to have a very comfortable home on those dog days of summer. The function of an A/C system is to drop the room temperature and also remove humidity. Most older systems do a good job at lowering the temperature but not the best at dehumidification. The latest technology features communicating thermostats, invertor compressors and variable speed motors. With this type of equipment, you can control the humidity level. But for most existing homes today, a portable or central whole house dehumidifier will greatly improve your comfort and protect your home from moisture damage. The benefits of a dehumidifier are: • Reduces the running time of your A/C system. The lower the humidity, the more comfortable you will be at a higher thermostat setting. • Prevent the proliferation of mold and dust mites. When humidity reaches 50 - 60%, the rate of mold spores and mites skyrockets. • Humid air is the perfect container of dirt, mold, mites and other allergens. • Damp air can cause damage to wooden structural supports, cabinets and furnishings. With proper dehumidification you will improve your health, protect your home’s structural supports, cabinets and furnishings. As always, if you have any HVAC related questions, please call me today!

Seaburg likes Sullivan’s knowledge of offense • SULLIVAN Continued from page C1 contain for the past 11 seasons, all of which have ended with a playoff appearance. C-G replaces many parts from its Class 7A state runner-up team, with Sullivan possibly as the most important piece. In the option, the quarterback has decisions to make at the line of scrimmage and after the snap. Whether to hand off, keep the ball or pitch are things he must read on each play. Sullivan welcomes the challenge and pressure. “It’s really exciting, seeing all the success for the past decade, I definitely don’t want to be the one to let it go,” Sullivan said. “We want to keep carrying it on. We’ve built something that’s pretty special.” Sullivan, as did several other backups last season, saw a good share of playing time with the 13-1 Trojans, who won most

games by lopsided scores. “That was tremendous,” Sullivan said. “I don’t think any backup got to play almost every second half throughout the year. That’s definitely helped me to where I an now.” Seaburg saw Sullivan’s development take shape two seasons ago when he took almost all the snaps on the sophomore team, which could not find a backup most of the season. After sophomore games, Sullivan would stand on the sideline with the varsity and chart plays. “He’s been with Jason for two years, and Jason did a great job with him last year,” Seaburg said. “They did everything together. He was able to absorb a lot of Jason’s knowledge. J.P. took a huge jump between his sophomore and junior years from his knowledge base of our offense, and he’s just kind of gone up with it.” Seaburg likes Sullivan’s knowledge of the offense and his decision-making. Unlike many

C-G quarterbacks, Sullivan has only one season to start, but Seaburg sees a positive there. “He’s hungry to play, that’s another good thing,” Seaburg said. Sullivan carried 33 times for 207 yards last season and scored two touchdowns. He feels if the offense can gain more consistency before the Aug. 28 opener at home with Prairie Ridge, the Trojans will be in good shape. “[Sullivan] is right where he needs to be, and maybe even above it,” fullback Tyler Pennington said. “He’s been working for three years. We mold them early, get them young, that’s what he’s here for.” Sullivan appreciates that Pennington, who led the area with 1,788 rushing yards, and running back Kevin Hughes return with their experience. The interior line will have four new starters with tackle Owen Henriques, but C-G expects to again have a productive offense.

Craft breweries creating buzz

Strive to be a positive influence

Sarah Nader – snader@shawmedia.com

Local demand rises as craft breweries nationally reach historic levels By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com

Sarah Nader – snader@shawmedia.com

A pallet of newly canned beer sits at Crystal Lake Brewing. Craft breweries across the country total 3,464 – a level not seen since 1873, according to the Brewers Association. and flavor. “It’s because of the quality of our product,” Ross said. “Without the quality of the product, we would just be another guy. Business is moving well.” Michael Dallas, who owns Scorched Earth Brewing in Algonquin, brushed aside concerns the growing market soon may become oversaturated. Specializing in sour tasting beers, Scorched Earth also has installed an additional fermenter and other brewing equipment to its Algonquin brewery and tap room since opening last summer. The microbrewery packages four- and sixpacks of select brews for retailers in McHenry, Lake, DuPage, Kane and northern suburban Cook counties. Craft breweries total greater numbers out west in states such as Colorado and California, where many brewers started turning their beer brewing hobbies into fledgling businesses decades ago, Dallas said. Scorched Earth even started after Dallas took interest in brewing beer as a hobby, initially in 2006 with a home-brewing kit his in-laws bought him for Christmas. As the craft brewery wave makes its way east, Dallas sees the number of breweries growing –

not subsiding – since by design the brews are geared toward individual tastes. “People’s palates are changing, and that’s because craft breweries are pushing the palates of everyone to try different things. That’s what’s so exciting about this movement,” Dallas said. “People are tired of the mass market approach and want something local and unique.” The nation’s largest beer makers have noticed. Anheuser Busch purchased Chicago-based Goose Island Brewing Co. and started the brand Shock Top for craft beer consumers years ago. The popular Blue Moon craft beer brand is a part of MillerCoors, which also has bought up smaller breweries in recent years. In Illinois, craft breweries nearly have doubled in the past four years, increasing from 54 total in 2011 to 103 in 2014, association figures show. McHenry County saw Crystal Lake Brewing, Scorched Earth and the smaller Chain O’ Lakes Brewing Company in McHenry all open in 2014. The three local breweries joined the 612 other microbreweries, brewpubs and regional brewer-

Nathan Nager watches the canning line while working at Crystal Lake Brewing. The brewery recently added three new fermenters, which nearly doubles its production capacity. Earlier this summer, the brewery also launched the new canning line that allows it to package craft brews into six packs.

CRYSTAL LAKE – In the backroom of Crystal Lake Brewing, stacks of empty aluminum cans slated for the microbrewery’s signature golden lagers and India pale ales wait to be filled and packaged through an automated canning line. The newly installed line, owners John O’Fallon and Chuck Ross explained, can package a case of beer within a minute – an expected improvement over the downtown Crystal Lake brewery’s original method that had employees manually packaging two cans a minute. Both Crystal Lake Brewery founders invested in the automated line to up production and meet growing demand for their four “flagship” craft beers that soon will hit retailers’ shelves in sixpacks throughout McHenry, DeKalb, DuPage, Lake, Kane and Kendall counties for the first time. The unexpected part for the two founders is how quickly they have arrived at that point, a year after they opened their craft brewery and tap room last August. “Production is going up fast. We should be available from the north side of Chicago all the way up to the Wisconsin border by the end of the year,” O’Fallon said. “Right now, we can’t make beer fast enough.” Craft breweries, from larger mainstays such as Sierra Nevada Brewing to the smaller “nanobreweries,” also are seeing more beer drinkers clamor for locally crafted and uniquely brewed beers. For the first time ever, craft breweries in 2014 captured 11 percent volume share of the beer marketplace in the U.S., according to figures released earlier this year from the Brewers Association, a national trade organization that represents small and independent brewers. Overall industry sales by volume in 2014 grew 0.5 percent, adding to craft breweries’ booming reputation. In 2010, craft breweries’ volume share of the marketplace totaled 5 percent. With more beer drinkers wanting a taste of Crystal Lake Brewery’s Beach Blonde, Slalom King and other brews, O’Fallon and Ross installed three additional fermenters earlier this month and nearly doubled production capability, as the microbrewery prepares to expand commercially throughout the Chicago area. The two hope to be producing 2,500 barrels of beer a year with the new canning line and fermenters. Both brewery founders said the company’s growth is similar to others in the craft brewery market largely because beer consumers now want locally produced beer for its quality

Influence is an unseen and usually an unacknowledged force in our lives. That can either be good or bad. On one hand, we deplore “bad influences” in our lives while we applaud “good examples.” Either way – good or bad – we continuously are being influenced through our own five senses, influencing others through words, deeds and, more importantly, reactions. Here are some strategies to take action and become a positive influence in the lives of others. Take a moment and think about the people in your life who have been the most influential to you, your success and happiness. There have been teachers, coaches, coworkers, friends and family members who have challenged and helped you grow. Influential people have helped keep your light shining, and you are better off for knowing them. Stop and think about the guiding principles, values and behaviors that these influential people demonstrate. What obstacles did they face, and how did they perform under pressure? How can you model and make these attributes your own? Now take another moment and uncover the ways in which you have been an influential person to others. You already are influential. The real question is: How do you become more so? The simple answer is to be more mindful and deliberate in your conduct and demeanor. Bring a “no strings attached” mindset to your relationships. Find ways to delight people and do more than what is required to build the relationship and touch their hearts, minds and lives. See the brilliance in other people and help them achieve goals that they once thought were impossible. The effects will be spectacular. Expand your influence by consciously connecting with new people, especially those individuals outside of your familiar circles. Offer your assistance and engage them on important issues that will make a positive difference. Freely express your gratitude and appreciation to the influential people in your life. Share with them how you have “paid it forward.” An example of this is local power couple, Rosemary and Bob Blazer. They did not deliberately set out to be influential people. But through their dedication to each other and their community, they have been a positive force for good. Join the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce and Chamber Foundation on Sept. 11 for the chamber’s 75th anniversary celebration and the renaming of its chamber building to the Blazier Center for Community, Leadership and Commerce. More information is available at www.clchamberfoundation.org. You will never know the impact of your influence. Make your influence positive, powerful and a legacy of your life.

Live simple and keep nightmarish debt away Dear Dave,

My wife and I are recent graduates with advanced degrees. We also have about $300,000 in student loan debt. We’re thinking about buying a rental property, and the plan is to get a mortgage with monthly payments of $400 and charge $800 in rent. We could use the extra money to help pay off our debt. Do you think this is a good idea? – Jeremy

Dear Jeremy,

Are you serious? You’re in a financial crisis, and you ask if it’s OK to buy a rental property? No, no, no! Right now, you guys are acting like Congress. You have a huge mess on your hands, and you’re

DAVE SAYS Dave Ramsey both going to have to work like crazy to clean it up. That means living on rice and beans for the foreseeable future. It means no vacations, and you should not see the inside of a restaurant unless you’re working there to make extra money. Again, no! You should not buy a rental property. Even if you did, this plan assumes that it’s constantly occupied and the renter actually pays. Those are two pretty big assumptions.

Use whatever money you have to get out of debt, and live simple, inexpensive lives until you get this behind you. Stop trying to borrow your way through all of your dreams, Jeremy. Doing that will only turn those dreams into nightmares. – Dave

Dear Dave,

I’m 61 and on disability, but I’m completely debt-free. I have more than $1 million in assets. I even try to spend no more than 4 percent of the principal each year, so I don’t dip into it. I need to buy a better car, and I realize that I have three options – pay cash, do a lease or finance the

vehicle. What do you suggest? – Linda

Dear Linda,

There’s no way I’ll ever tell you to lease or finance a car. You have a nice, peaceful financial life, and you don’t want to mess that up. New car leases are one of the biggest rip-offs on the planet. Consumer Reports, and my calculator, both say leasing is the most expensive way to operate a vehicle. And why would you want the hassle of car payments when you’re in such good shape with your money? I’m all right with you buying a new car because for someone like you, it’s such a small portion of your

overall financial picture. I advise people to always buy good, used cars unless they have a net worth of $1 million or more. You definitely fall into that category. Still, my advice is to pay cash or don’t do the deal. You’re more than able to do this every few years and not move the needle where your finances are concerned. Go get that new, better car, Linda. Just don’t go into debt to make it happen. – Dave

eries that started last year in the U.S., based on association figures. All three categories fall under the umbrella of a craft brewery, which the association defines as one that produces less than six million barrels of beer a year. Smaller microbreweries produce less than 15,000 barrels a year and primarily sell beer off site, while brewpubs primarily brew beer to be sold in a restaurant or bar. Craft breweries in all three categories now total 3,418 – an 19.38 percent increase from 2013. That’s a level not seen since 1873, when 4,131 total breweries served a population who logistically had to rely on local producers to grab a cold one. Even with its focus on McHenry, Chain O’ Lakes Brewing has seen a number of out-of-town visitors try the company’s popular seasonal brews and other beers, owner Curt Ames said.

dents without the intention of wider commercial distribution. He brewed about 100 barrels of beer last year, but increased sales and demand this year have pushed production to 125 barrels through mid-August. Even as nearby Crystal Lake Brewing and Scorched Earth ramp up commercial production, Ames so far has found comfort in competition. The new craft brewery scene in the county has driven more people to all three companies, he said. “The more awareness of people being able to go into a local brewery and get a freshly brewed beer helps us all,” Ames said. “I don’t even look it as competition. It’s a community that makes more people show up.”

For a nonprofit to survive, let alone thrive, for more than half a century takes a lot of hard work and more than a little luck. Following a meeting of 70 community leaders the McHenry County Historical Society formed Nov. 23, 1963, and by March 1964 it boasted more than 500 charter members. On July 14, 1976, the Society’s museum in Union officially opened to the public. Its comprehensive collection includes an 1843 log cabin, an 1867 limestone schoolhouse, an 1885 town hall, an 1898 country church and an 1895 one-room schoolhouse. We advocate for historical structures. Most recently that list included Harmony School in Coral Township, the former Sawyer-Kelley Mill in Huntley (artifacts saved), Camp Algonquin in Algonquin Township and the Mineola Hotel in Fox Lake.

BUSINESS 3

We have worked tirelessly to build bridges with our constituents and with other historical organizations across the county, region and state. We educate your children. Every year more than 1,200 third-, fourth- and fifth-graders visit the museum and reconnect with their roots. In 1982, a local history research library was added to the museum and in 2002 the Society launched a mobile museum called “The James.” We run a research library and serve as a resource for those looking to rediscover their roots, restore a historic home, preserve family heirlooms and learn about the past. And we do all of this frugally, relying on just three staff and a host of volunteers. The Society also conducts workshops and lectures, makes traveling exhibits available to classrooms and conducts a myriad of programs – many of which are free. Upcoming events include a quilt appraisal Aug. 23, a historic railroad bus tour Sept. 13, Sears home lecture Sept. 27, our annual Cider Festival Oct. 4, a frightfully fun Historic Halloween Oct. 14, Riley Church singalong Nov. 8 and a Civil War quilting program Nov. 11. For details visit GotHistory.org.

They already got your prunes You may have missed the news, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. I’m referring, of course, to the fact prunes have been driven to extinction by dried plums. Oh, the Food and Drug Administration will tell you it’s just a name change, designed to make the product more attractive to younger consumers who only think of prunes as “Mom’s laxatives.” But you can’t deny the grim timeline. Dried plums started taking over the shelves where prunes used to be stocked clear back in 2001. Still, we were forewarned. We should have been ready for our prunes’ demise. We had centuries to see it coming. What else could Nostradamus (15031566) have had in mind when he wrote: “Not far from the age of the millennium, when there is no more room in Hell, the buried dead shall come out of their graves”? Think about it: What other fruit could more aptly be compared to the risen dead than a prune? And for that matter, can you think of a better description of blocked bowels than “there is no more room in Hell”? Of course, that quote doesn’t really predict prunes would go extinct, but Nostradamus is really exhausting to read much further. He probably said it somewhere. I suppose it’s not surprising prunes would be a target for attack from the darker powers of the world, because prunes always have been the ultimate American success story. In the year 2000, according to the Internet (which knows all things and never lies), 99 percent of all prunes sold in America were home-grown in California, which also accounted for 70

percent of all the prunes in the entire world. Now, if that’s not an American success story, then I don’t know what is. Our American prunes were just asking to be attacked. And attacked they were. Check the shelves for yourself. California prunes are extinct. Rows and rows of dried plums now sit in their place. I have no idea where dried plums come from. I suppose I could check the Internet to find out, but I’m exhausted from all that Nostradamus stuff. All I know is dried plums seem to have won the war. It’s probably too late now to do anything about it. Once a species is extinct, only a miracle could bring it back. It’s as true for prunes as it was for plesiosaurs. Besides, if you try to mount a “save the prune” campaign, those who are in on the conspiracy will call you a nut job. They will continue to insist prunes haven’t really gone anywhere, that it’s only a name change that was necessary to save the industry. After all, they will tell you, the words “dried” and “plum” aren’t saddled with the kind of negative baggage that comes with “prune.” They’ll try to trick you with examples: “Let’s drink a glass of some nice DRY wine,” they will say, “to celebrate this PLUM of a job I’ve been offered. But first let’s get out of this hot tub, because my fingers and toes are all PRUNY and disgusting.” You’ll try to point out to them “prune” can have a positive connotation, too. After all, trees are made more beautiful and healthy when you prune them, right? But they will just give you that arrogant look that says, “Well, we

just pruned them right off the grocery shelves.” They won’t say it out loud, of course, because that would be tipping their hand. But they’ll have that look. You’ll see it. They’ll try to trick you with other examples from history. They will point to other name changes that had to be made in response to a changing world. Jay’s Potato Chips, they will tell you, used to be called Jap’s Potato Chips. That is, that’s what they were called until December 7, 1941, when a name change seemed prudent. And then they will tell you about a chocolate appetite suppressant called Ayds, which sold a lot of product in the ’70s with commercials that touted, “Ayds helped me lose weight.” That is, those claims were made until the early ’80s, when folks with a different sort of AIDS lost a lot more than weight. The company tried changing the name to Diet Ayds, but if you clip the last letter from the word “diet” you end up with even more bad news, so the company just faded away. That’s all it is, they will tell you. It’s just a name change. And then they’ll stop listening to you. So, as I say, it’s probably too late to save the prunes. Prunes are dead and gone, and they won’t “come out of their graves,” Nostradamus notwithstanding. Still, I thought you should know. Because if we just take the prune’s demise lying down, how long will it be before the terrorists come after our raisins?

EnvironmentTip Beauty tips run more than skin deep

The average person uses up to 10 different skin care products on his or her body every day. Because our skin acts more like a sponge than a barrier, we absorb the nearly 130 chemicals we regularly expose ourselves to. Here are a few ideas to avoid unnecessary chemicals in our skin care.

Simplify: Don’t be fooled by cosmetic advertising. All you need is a basic cleanser, toner, moisturizer and broad-spectrum sunscreen. Everything else is just dressing. Say no to fragrance: Artificial fragrances frequently contain phthalates and can also trigger allergic reactions and other irritation. Make your own green skin

care treatments: You’ll save money and packaging, and avoid preservatives and toxic chemicals. Whip up a simple, effective face mask using little more than honey and coconut oil. Stay beautiful inside and out by being healthy: Diet and exercise play vital roles in skin care. A good sweat keeps nutrient-carrying

blood circulating throughout your body, and a balanced diet with lots of water flushes out toxins that might otherwise show up on your skin. Going green for healthy skin is easy. Natural ingredients, simple ideas, exercise, drink water and get plenty of rest.

Amy and Scott McKearney stand with their children, Diane (from left), 4, Kelley, 9, and Meghan, 7, at their home in Thomaston, Conn.

Back to school can be a time to teach kids independence NEW YORK – Much is made about two distinct styles of parenting. We’ve got the hovering helicopters and the risk-taking free-rangers, and back-to-school season threatens to bring out the beast in both. Parents of newly minted kindergartners cling to school fences, while first-time middle schoolers are encouraged to find their own way there after years of being micromanaged. In between are the middle-grounders, parents who embrace baby steps to independence. Encouraging, instilling and planning for more freedom and responsibility for kids doesn’t have to be an ordeal, some said. And back-to-school season can be the perfect time to figure out the next round. Take Amy McKearney, a mom of three girls, ages 4, 7 and 9, in Thomaston, Connecticut. While she’s still on chauffeur duty for school and many activities, she has found lots of little ways to foster growing independence in her brood. “I let my oldest go to the park with my 4-year-old while I watch the 7-year-old play soccer,” she offered. “It’s about 100 yards away.” And she made full use of

learning resource centers situated in some Connecticut schools for kids 5 and younger as a way to help build trust in outside-the-family adults in a play-group setting but within a school environment. Parents are required to stick around but take a backseat. “That way, I was still there but at a distance,” McKearney said. “It’s a good way to work on things, like whether your child is shy in a group.” Another useful tactic: Rather than hover while grocery shopping, she’ll wait for her number to be called at the meat counter and send her oldest to other aisles to pick up items on their list. And at a nearby familiar amusement park, her two oldest are allowed to roam together. “They’ve been there at least 50 times. I know they know their way around,” McKearney said. “They’ll go on rides while I go with my smaller one or stay in a central location.” McKearney’s baby steps might put fear into some helicopter parents wary of leaving young kids unsupervised in public places. No worries, said mom Christina Woelffer in Raleigh, North Carolina. She sees opportunities to foster school-worthy skills for her three kids – 3, 5 and 7 – right at home.

t 19, most teenagers are struggling to choose a college major, a group of friends, a summer job – an identity. Crystal Lake resident Sarah Natale Mondello, on the other hand, is busy adding “published author” to her already crowded résumé “Writing has definitely been my passion since I was little. Before I could even hold a pencil, I was memorizing pages of books and making scribbles that were actually stories and reading them to my parents,” said Mondello, a sophomore at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, double majoring in creative writing and public relations. “I have always wanted to be a New York Times best-selling author. My parents fostered in me a love of books, which essentially led to my love of writing.” Photo provided Mondello, who writes under the pen name Sarah Natale Mondello of Crystal Lake, a sophomore at Drake Uni- Sarah Natale, recently celebrated the publicaversity in Des Moines, Iowa, poses with her first novella, “The Kiss of tion of her first book through Kellan PublishDeath,” at Barnes & Noble in Crystal Lake. ing titled “The Kiss of Death,” which was

awarded the 2014 Helen Wright Scholarship in creative writing from the Woodstock Fine Arts Association. In June 2015, “The Kiss of Death” was released to online distributors. In July, the book hit the bookshelves of the Crystal Lake Barnes & Noble, where it is on display as recommended reading by the manager, Dave Knapp. “Local author Sarah Natale’s debut novel promises great things to come! Well worth the read!” Knapp’s recommendation reads. Mondello will perform a reading from her book and sign copies from 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 18 at Barnes & Noble, 5380 Northwest Highway, Crystal Lake. She said it took hard work, dedication and determination to overcome many obstacles before her book became a reality. “I have spent years researching the publishing industry,” Mondello said. “After spending the summer prior to my freshman year of college submitting my manuscript to literary agents left and right to no avail, rejections became the norm.”

About Sarah Natale Mondello Mondello of Crystal Lake will be a sophomore at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, in the fall double majoring in creative writing and public relations. She works as an on-campus writing tutor and writes for her university newspaper and two university magazines and has served as a volunteer writing judge for the Susan Glaspell Writers and Critics Series Drake Emerging Writer Award for applicants’ first book of literary nonfiction. She also is an active member of the Public Relations Student Society of America.

There is less readily known about the

time period without extensive research, as opposed to the 17th century outbreak, where information is easier

to find. Plus, I found that the medieval era – the dark ages of Europe – had more avenues for story conflict than the bustling ingenuity of the Renaissance. I used the medical knowledge of the time; that it was so counterproductive made it so interesting,” Mondello said. “I wanted to add layers – the concept of class, nobility versus peasantry; a love interest; and religion – with a twist at the end. My readers have a really strong reaction to my story, so that means as an author I have accomplished what I set out to do.” Mondello strives to be a successful writer of young adult novels but does not want to limit herself to one specific genre. “I have two bookshelves full of notebooks filled with a collection of journals, short stories, series, chapter books, novels and screenplays,” Mondello said. “I’m willing to go wherever my writing wants to take me. It’s that entrepreneurship spirit, and I’m prepared to do the work to get there. I am highly motivated and passionate about my love of the craft.” “The characters are screaming to be written,” Mondello said. “They want their story told.”

What’s next Sarah Natale Mondello has several unpublished novels completed but has a specific direction in mind for her next published book. She said she’s eager to work on her next project which may be a sequel to “The

Kiss of Death,” this time a full-length novel. “My working title is ‘The Kiss of Life,’ ” Mondello said. “If that goes well, then possibly a third to complete a trilogy.” Mondello said she would love to bring

out all of her old research and dive back into the time period. She wants to revisit the characters and build upon their lives in order to return readers to the world they’ve grown to love. She said that is why the idea

of a series is so appealing to readers and authors alike. “As an author, it’s hard to say goodbye to your characters,” Mondello said. “I want to say hello again.”

I always find it exciting when I get a new type of jewelry in to appraise. I love the investigative part where I have to scour the Internet and my jewelry books to learn about the history of the piece. I recently worked with a customer who had reverse painted crystal jewelry. I had never seen this type of jewelry before so of course my interest was piqued right away. After researching for a few days, I found the story of these little mini works of art to be intriguing and I thought maybe you would too! Many of you are already familiar with the term cameo – a piece of jewelry that has a carved profile portrait in relief on a background of a different color – but have you ever heard of the cameo’s cousin, an intaglio? Intaglios are pieces of jewelry that have an engraving or carving on the inside of the gemstone. Reversed carved crystals are intaglios that are hand carved and then hand painted on circular pieces of polished rock crystal quartz. This miniature art form began over 1,000 years ago in Belgium by an artist named Emile Marius Pradier. He would etch a design into the back of a crystal and either fill it with different colored materials or paint it. His works of art varied and included portraits, flowers, animals and landscape scenes. The technique to carve these little masterpieces is quite extensive. First, the crystal needs to be cut and polished with a diamond saw to get the exact shape ideal for carving – usually a round cabochon. Next, the design is etched into the back of the stone and finally it is painted. All of this work is done by hand and is so intricate that when it comes time to for painting, the brush that is used only has one hair on it! Generally a mother of pearl or gold foil backing would be applied to protect the paintings. As time went on, the materials used for these intaglios changed from rock crystal quartz to glass and plastic. As they began to gain popularity in the 1940’s and 50’s the designs were carved by machine rather than by hand making these products accessible to all of the carved crystal enthusiasts. They lasted in popularity until the 1960’s. Crystal carving has always been a family venture and there are very few artists in the present day that have the knowledge or ability to produce these crystals, making the process of reverse intaglio one of the most respected art forms of today. While we don’t have any of these little masterpieces currently in the store, there are several photos of them up on our website under the Gem Talk tab.

It was only after she decided to step away from submitting her manuscript that she stumbled on a small publisher seeking the type of book she had written. “Upon submission, Kellan Publishing asked to see more of my work,” Mondello said. “I had met an opportunity, and I was prepared. That was key.” On Christmas Eve of 2014, Mondello received her first contract. “I couldn’t have asked for a finer Christmas gift,” Mondello said. Shortly after, Mondello commissioned her former art teacher at St. Thomas the Apostle School, Peg Pappa, to illustrate the book jacket. “Peg’s art captured the essence of my story,” Mondello said. “It was a meeting of creative minds to add a visual dimension, especially in the somber bridge scene on the back cover – the turning point in the story.” The historical fiction novella follows the story of Elizabeth, a young woman in mid-14th century London, who finds herself in a struggle for

survival and young love amid a backdrop of deadly plague. When asked where she drew her inspiration for the story, Mondello credits her creative writing teacher, Jerry Thiel, at Crystal Lake Central High School for assigning the project that gave her the opportunity to bring the pages of “The Kiss of Death” to life. When describing his role in Mondello’s story, Thiel beamed. “I didn’t teach Sarah,” Thiel said. “I just got out of her way.” On the first day of class, Thiel announced the final project would be to write a sevento 10-page historical fiction short story. Thiel’s assignment rapidly turned into a serious research project for Mondello. “From that moment, I knew the era of history that I wanted to write about. Needless to say, mine was a bit more – 41 pages total,” Mondello said. “I went above and beyond the assignment, as I prefer a challenge. I always aim big.” Mondello said she hadn’t originally thought of herself as an historical fiction writer, but in doing the research for her book, she found she was passionate about the subject. “The plague drives the plot

For kids of all ages, one big thing helps soften the blow of summer turning into fall: fresh and fun back-toschool gear. Supplies with popular licensed characters from movies, TV shows and books always make a splash among younger kids, while older ones contemplate design and functionality for everything from middle-school lockers to dorm rooms. This year, the rambunctious little yellow Minions with the big goggles have their own feature-length film spinoff from the “Despicable Me” franchise, and have surfaced on backpacks and notebooks available at Target. A new take on Charlie Brown in another theatrical release, “The Peanuts Movie” due out in November, might have something to do with two choices in Snoopy-theme soft lunch bags from Target, including one with the famous beagle snoozing on top of his equally famous doghouse. At Staples, students at two middle schools will see the fruits of their labor hit shelves. They were chosen to work in teams to come up with school supplies of their own for the company’s new Designed by Students Collection. Alison Corcoran, senior vice president of marketing for Staples, said the company worked closely with about 48 students in all, from Middle School 88 in Brooklyn and the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta. About 14 products are included in

the collection. “They made presentations. The teams did self-criticisms and evolved their ideas as part of the curriculum,” she said. “School supplies have been around forever. We thought, let’s take a fresh look with the people who are actually using these things on a day-to-day basis and ask, ‘How can we make them better and more relevant?’ ” For high school and college students with an eye for color and sleek contemporary design, a stop at Poppin.com might go a long way in desk supplies, dorm storage and other gear. Givebacks have grown among companies doing business in back-toschool. Many offer buy-one-give-one programs to kids and classrooms in need, or they’ll fill donated backpacks with school supplies to donate. At Yoobi, a spate of new supplies in that vein was curated by Usher. For every item purchased, Yoobi donates an item to a worthy classroom. The collection is available at Yoobi. com and in Target stores nationwide. It’s not the first education-focused collaboration for Usher, who has two school-age sons. They, too, had a hand in the project, the singer said by email. “I looked at what colors they were drawn to and in a very sly way, I’d show something to them and ask, ‘What do you think about this? Do you like this color?’ That helped me curate the collection,” he said.

The best time to shop for deals School supplies

Start shopping now for pens, notebooks and other supplies. Staples brought back its “Less List,” which offers basics like one-subject notebooks for 25 cents and two-pocket folders for 15 cents, as well as a 24-pack Crayola crayons for 50 cents. Wal-Mart rolled back prices on all three Texas Instrument calculators to $88. These graphing calculators are for high school and above and are normally $96 to $125. Target is testing a new way to shop for supplies online called School List Assist, which is an online hub that offers a selection of the most common supplies for grades kindergarten through eighth grade. For those stores with high spending thresholds for free shipping, just go to the store, said Benjamin K. Glaser, features editor at DealNews, because you’ll just spend more trying to meet that $50 minimum.

Clothing and accessories

The Floating Shelf

One of the student designs chosen is an ingenious locker organizer that zigzags vertically to create nifty cubicles. The Floating Shelf comes in color combinations worthy of boys and girls – neon green and gray, purple and pink, and black and dark blue.

Back2Back School Bag

The Yoobi X Usher collection

Designed by artist Jonni Cheatwood, it features five prints for more than 20 products, ranging from blue paint drips to pink-and-green splatters in binders, notebooks, pencils, pencil cases, folders and journals.

The student-designed Back2Back School Bag is a rectangular-shaped backpack that provides wider storage space and has two oversize slots for laptops and folders. It also includes a separate, attached compartment at the bottom to segregate lunch or snack items – or smelly gym shoes – from the main compartment.

Box Seat

Dorm rooms remain, well, dorm rooms, so space is at a premium. Poppin sells a storage unit called the Box Seat for the college contingent tired of the milk-crate look. It’s covered with fabric in light and dark gray, navy, orange, red and pool blue, and is sturdy enough to withstand 275 pounds.

Now is a good time to stock up on summer clothing, taking advantage of clearance sales. Gap’s Old Navy, for example, is offering up to 60 percent off on summer tops. Macy’s is highlighting light-weight casual dresses for teens that are $29.99 and less. But it’s best to wait to buy jeans, boots and sweaters until well after school starts. Traci Gregorski, vice president of marketing for research firm Market Track, which tracks promotions at various retailer, monitored circulars at 13 stores including J.C. Penney, Macy’s, Sears, Target and Wal-Mart the past two years. “The key takeaway here is that the best chance to get a deal on these fall clothing items is in October,” Gregorski said. “Not only are there more products on promotion, but the deals are as good and often better than the back-to-school months.” If you can hold off on buying boots a little longer than that, just take advantage of the Black Friday sales, Cook said.

Computers and smart phones

Hold off on upgrading Apple iPhone and Apple iPad because Apple typically announces new launches later in the fall. But Glaser notes late August is the best time to buy a laptop before Black Friday sales hit. Right now, the average discounts for laptops are 15 percent, but you can get 25 percent off by the end of the month, he said.

Wife doesn’t share man’s joy over his retirement Dear Abby: I’m retiring at the end of this year after 50 years of full-time employment, and I’m very excited about it. Looking back over my life, I see there have been several lifechanging events ... marriage, the births of our children, buying a home and, now, retirement. My wife gets irritated every time I say (about twice a week), “When I retire.” I’m looking forward to all sorts of activities I’ll have time for. Why can’t she be excited too? She makes snide remarks like, “Well, when you retire, you won’t have anything to say.” The implication is all I talk about is my retirement, which isn’t true. And if it were true, it’s a big deal to me. What should I say to my wife? – Excited In Maryland Dear Excited: You might start by

asking why her reaction is to rain on

your parade about something you’re clearly looking forward to. She may be worried about how her life will change once you retire, or she may be a tad jealous. But you won’t know until you have a frank conversation with her that isn’t passive aggressive or tinged with sarcasm. Dear Abby: I have been in a relationship with a woman, “Wendy,” for more than a year. She has one child, whose father isn’t in the boy’s life, so I fill the role of his daddy. We are now expecting a child together. Wendy had a bad experience with her ex not wanting anything to do with his child. She also has a friend who has had kids with different men who ended up not treating them the same. Lately, Wendy has been pushing me away and trying to get me to leave. I have no plans to leave, and I

don’t want to. My question is, how do I make her understand I’m not the same as the other men, and I want to be there for both children? – Man In A Tough Spot Dear Man: A marriage proposal and joint premarital counseling might go a long way in helping your girlfriend understand you aren’t planning to disappear in a puff of smoke. It also might give you more insight into why she wants to push you away, just in case it’s because she isn’t as serious about you as you are about her. Dear Abby: After the long winters in Minnesota, we look forward to summer to open our windows and enjoy the fresh air. However, we are unable to do that because of wind chimes. Apparently, wind chime owners don’t understand (or care) that the noise carries throughout the whole block,

StraightTalk Rick Atwater

especially on windy nights. Please, folks, take down your chimes and hang up something quiet instead. –

Miffed In Minnesota Dear Miffed: If your solution to

this problem is writing to me hoping your neighbors see your letter, please allow me to offer a better one. Bake a batch of cookies (or another confection), and take it to these neighbors. When you hand your gift to them, explain their wind chimes are driving you and some of the other neighbors to distraction. Then ask if they would please be kind enough to take them down and suggest perhaps they hang a basket of flowers in their place.

Start on own recovery before tackling others’ problems Mr. Atwater: I grew up in a home where Mom was addicted to drugs and alcohol and Dad was so controlling I felt like I needed permission to breathe. He just considered himself “strict.” Mom never got well and died a few years ago of drug-related causes. I was mostly the parent since my Mom was out of it and my Dad acted like a big baby, either angry and stomping his feet or pouting when he didn’t get his way. I never wanted to be like either of my parents, and although I’ve almost never used drugs and very little alcohol, I’ve married one alcoholic and

live with a second. My oldest son has most of the bad characteristics of my Mom, my Dad and me combined. I’ve tried every kind of advice. If he would follow instructions, I think he could come out of this. Does he need counseling? Dear Reader: My take on your situation might be a little different from yours, so before you continue reading you might want to sit down. I think you have a fair amount of “Dad” in your approach. Most people don’t respond well to advice unless they ask for it or have what’s called “willingness.” This is something you wouldn’t have

learned in your family. You are doing to your son what your Dad did to you (do what I say not what I do; listen to me; don’t develop your own wisdom). You also have a problem I call “the Master of the Universe Syndrome.” It is characterized by the thought that if people would just do what you tell them, then everything would be OK. When you are a kid and have dysfunctional parents and have to solve problems yourself, you get pretty good at it. In fact, you begin to believe that not only can you solve your problems, but you can solve the prob-

lems of others, as well. As you grow and mature, you learn to forget or avoid your own shortcomings by focusing on and “helping” others with theirs. That behavior becomes a pattern, so much so that you unconsciously look for and miraculously seem to find those who “need your help” but invariably don’t want it. You have to solve the mystery of the “Master of the Universe Syndrome” for yourself before trying any problemsolving for others. You have to wake up from your own denial before you can demand others wake from theirs. I think there might be a chair in an

Al Anon meeting somewhere with your name on it. Once you get started on your own recovery, the right approaches to your son’s issues will begin to make themselves more clear. In addition, your recovery will likely speed his willingness to get help.

By HILLARY SPEED The Associated Press While many parents hit the stores to find their children’s back-to-school wardrobes, the online marketplace also buzzes this season. And for some dedicated shoppers, it is more than a convenient place to buy clothes. It’s a subculture.

Finding a niche

“We all share a common love for children’s clothing, which not many of our reallife friends understand,” said Jennifer Randeau, a mother of three from Mystic, Connecticut, who co-founded and now runs the “MiNi BoDeN ReSeLl” Facebook page, which she said has more than 10,000 members interested in buying and selling kids’ clothing by the British designer brand Boden. Similar Facebook resell boards have been created around other brands for boys and girls, such as Janie and Jack, Gymboree, Hanna Andersson and Tea Collection. Other groups focus on a specific location, gender or age group. Shoppers can zero in on what they like or need and connect with products and people in a way they can’t in the real world. Randeau prefers Facebook BST (buy/sell/trade) boards, as they are sometimes called, to conventional shopping, consignment or online auction sites. Buyers can ask specific questions and often avoid high shipping costs, she said, while sellers can avoid the cuts and fees typical of consignment and online auction sites. “Many of the boards develop a very strong sense of community,” Randeau said. “You make ‘friends’ as you buy from and sell items to people. You meet a lot of people that you may not otherwise cross paths with. A lot of great moms

Learn the language Like many places online, the forsale groups tend to establish their own rules and use a language that might look cryptic to an outsider. There are frequently used acronyms – some of which have carried over from eBay and other online marketplaces – to describe the condition of items or other details. Knowing those acronyms can make participants feel like they’re part of a club. A quick primer for those not yet in that club: • “ISO” – an item somebody is “in search of” • “NWT” – “New With Tags” • “GUC” – “Good Used Condition.” • “HTF” – An item that is “hard to find,” because it’s from an older line or was part of a limited run • “IRL” – “In Real Life” (pictures of the seller as opposed to the posed pictures of models provided by the brand) help each other out with ISO’s, matches and deals in general.”

Networks of online shoppers tackle back to school time


Shoppers share deals Continued from page 9 More than just clothes

While day-to-day operations on these for-sale groups might seem to be business as usual, something deeper than a simple exchange of goods can occur. “These groups have come together in enormous proportions to rally around one another in times of sorrow and times of joy,” said Sarah Blevins, who runs the blog “Our Little Life Style,” where she documents her children’s activities and wardrobes. She calls back-to-school shopping season “Christmas in August.” Blevins’ example is the boutique brand Matilda Jane, whose Facebook resell groups recently have seen an outpouring of mourning and remembrance after the brand’s founder’s death from cancer. “That passion is something that you just simply can’t buy at the mall,” Blevins said.

Sharing deals

It’s the giving spirit – that idea that mothers support

other mothers, even as they shop – that inspired graphic designer Sarah Trainor to create her website SampleSaleMom. com. There, she shares links to flash-sale sites that focus on clothing, accessories and toys for children. Websites she links to, such as Zulily, Gilt, MyHabit and Rue La La, offer daily markdowns on namebrand items for a short period of time, and many offer incentives to first-time shoppers and those who refer others to their site. Trainor started the website in 2011, when she realized that by sharing a link to a flash-sale site where she bought a deeply discounted Smart Gear wooden bike for her son, she earned $330 in referral credits to the site. It was a win-win. “It’s really satisfying to track down an incredible deal on something, and then it’s even better to share it with other people and hear their excitement about it too,” Trainor said. The best advice to back-toschool shoppers that she can share right now? Get online. “You can see much more in much less time,” Trainor said.

“My kids attend a Montessori school, of which a main principle is the child’s need for independence and the adult’s need to recognize them as a person versus a baby,” she said. “So, what we do at home closely mirrors the attitude which is found in the classroom: bring your dishes to the sink, clean up after yourself, order your own food at a restaurant, etc.” Kim John Payne, a former school and family counselor in Northampton, Massachusetts, is the dad of two daughters, 13 and 16. Hovering for years then abruptly letting go once kids are older – without adequate preparation – is an issue that rears regularly among kids and parents today, he said. “Rather than think about, ‘Am I helicoptering, am I free-ranging, am I, am I?’

there’s a third dimension, and the third dimension is expanding our firm but loving boundaries as kids grow, so that we transition the way we hold them both physically and emotionally,” said Payne, who wrote the book “The Soul of Discipline: The Simplicity Parenting Approach to Warm, Firm and Calm Guidance – from Toddlers to Teens,” out in June from Ballantine Books. For back to school, Payne suggests, ask older kids to outline their own strategies for tackling new challenges and tasks. For younger kids, such as new kindergartners, he said, parents often project anxiety without realizing it. “Before school starts, go walk around the school. Take the dog for a walk there or go play Frisbee on school grounds with your child. Get them familiar and get yourself familiar,” he said. “But play. Don’t just walk around and be all serious.”

MINI-REVIEWS & LOCAL SHOWTIMES OF CURRENT MOVIES ON SCREEN NOW

“FANTASTIC FOUR”

STARRING: Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan

PLOT: Four young outsiders teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. The four must learn to harness their new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy. RATED: PG-13 for sci-fi action violence and language TIME: 1 hour, 40 minutes VERDICT: “Fantastic Four,” directed by Josh Trank, is not wholesale terrible – just depressingly mediocre, and at a certain point you sort of start wishing it were definitively terrible, because that would at least make it more entertaining or give it a certain strange raison d’etre. It’s not that the raw materials aren’t there. We have some talented actors on hand. This movie isn’t the first attempt to make this story into a profitable franchise. Previous efforts failed, and the thought here must have been to re-energize things with a young and appealing cast. But these actors – unlike, say, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in the recent “Spider-Man” films – are not well used, and their charisma remains largely untapped. The result? Something much less than fantastic. –The Associated Press

“THE GIFT”

STARRING: Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall, Joel Edgerton

PLOT: A young married couple’s lives are thrown into a harrowing tailspin when an acquaintance from the husband’s past brings mysterious gifts and a horrifying secret to light after more than 20 years. RATED: R for language TIME: 1 hour, 48 minutes VERDICT: Nobody likes a bully. Especially a past victim with a long memory. Figuring out who’s the bully and who’s the victim is part of the mystery in “The Gift,” a satisfying directorial debut from writer, producer and star Joel Edgerton. While it doesn’t break any new ground, the first feature from new studio STX Entertainment succeeds as the kind of unsettling psychological thriller that could inspire one to double-check the locks on the front door. Edgerton’s film plays as homage to the polished, stylized thrillers of the 1980s and ’90s, when things went bad for Yuppies. The three leads make their performances look effortless, a credit to Edgerton’s direction. “The Gift” takes a leap at its conclusion, but it doesn’t undo the story’s main theme, which Gordo might creepily sum up as “what happens when you poison other people’s minds with ideas.” Like it might be a good idea to check the locks. – The Associated Press

“THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E”

STARRING: Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander PLOT: In the early 1960s, CIA agent Napoleon Solo and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin participate in a joint mission against a mysterious criminal organization, which is working to proliferate nuclear weapons.

LOCAL SHOWTIMES RATED: PG-13 for action violence, some suggestive content and partial nudity TIME: 1 hour, 56 minutes VERDICT: It’s not until the climax of “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” a colorful, Cold War-era spy thriller, that its main failing becomes clear: The plot doesn’t matter. The characters don’t care. The script doesn’t care. And, the audience shouldn’t care. That doesn’t make this odd adaptation of the 1960s NBC series bad. But it is a false promise that distracts from some of the other pleasures (and missteps) of the spectacle. “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” mercifully does not require any knowledge of its television origin. In fact, the forgettable acronym is uttered once and explained only in text in the closing credits. This ode to handsome men, women, clothes and cars is less about a Russian (Armie Hammer) and an American (Henry Cavill) teaming up to infiltrate a shadowy organization with nuclear ambitions, than a sort of pastiche of the ’60s spy genre derived from Vogue magazine. It’s the type of film more interested in having side characters say pretty things than it is in its main story. What pleasure does exist is in the carefully crafted aesthetics and the exaggerated acting, especially Cavill’s devilish charm. Alicia Vikander and Elizabeth Debicki (as the glamorous big bad) are deliciously cool. “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” could be smarter. It could be faster. It could have given Hugh Grant more to do. But, in this case, beautiful, adequate and escapist is almost enough. – The

Associated Press

“STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON” STARRING: O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins,

Jason Mitchell PLOT: The group N.W.A. emerges from the streets of Compton, California, in the mid-1980s and revolutionizes Hip Hop culture with their music and tales about life in the hood. RATED: R for language throughout, strong sexuality/nudity, violence and drug use TIME: 2 hours, 27 minutes VERDICT: The shotgun blast of fury that first emanated from South Central Los Angeles in 1988 still packs a punch. The new, very much authorized biopic of N.W.A, “Straight Outta Compton,” aims to cement the legacy of the pioneering hip-hop group that brought gangsta rap to the mainstream and sparked endless culture debates. Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and Easy-E – the three most central members of the five-some – were, from the start, the savviest of self-promoters, casting themselves as violent gangsters and exalting the hard streets they came from. So it’s fitting they should shape their big-screen treatment, too, in a commercial package that’s brashly winning and unapologetically self-serving. “Straight Outta Compton” is built on the abiding fierceness of the music, the unlikeliness of their hood-to-Hollywood journey and a talented young cast that handles the heavy weight of playing icons with unusual skill. But the movies – particularly the studio-made, summer variety – are seldom what you would call “hard.” Nor do they make a habit of telling the stories of searing, provocative black voices that rise out of urban nightmares. “Straight Outta Compton” never forgets where its stars came from, and neither should we. – The Associated Press
