District looks to add cameras, tighten security BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

Dixon Police Chief Danny Langloss speaks Nov. 3, 2012, to supporters of a 1 percent sales tax referendum that would have helped to pay for a proposed sports and activities complex in Dixon. Supporters hoped the facility would bring a better quality of life to the community, but voters rejected the tax increase, as they did another increase during Tuesday’s primary.

Another referendum for improvements shot down BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

Schools are seeing a drop in state funding for operations and transportation. And they struggle to get voters to pass referendums to pay for school improvements. In recent years, voters in Whiteside and Lee counties have rejected a 1 percent sales tax to fund school infrastructure. On Tuesday, Whiteside voters decisively turned down the request – for a fourth time. A referendum also failed in Carroll County, but by a closer margin. Before Tuesday, the tax proposal had

gained support in each attempt – 42 percent support in November 2008, 45 percent in April 2009, and 46 percent last April. This time, however, nearly 58 percent of voters said no. Passing a sales tax, Sterling public schools Superintendent Tad Everett said, would allow the district to cut its property taxes. “What this boils down to is that we have a cost to maintain our buildings, which has averaged $800,000 to $900,000 a year,” he said. “The way we have funded that throughout our history is bonding. This [1 percent tax] is an alternative to that structure.” NAY CONTINUED ON A5

Tuesday’s edition will include a 52-page special section, “Vision 2030,” that will examine what the Sauk Valley might look like in 2030. We will look at employment, the workforce, education, infrastructure, housing, religion and health care, among other issues.

RELIGION | LENT

DIXON – The Dixon school district is looking to add cameras and more secure entrances to its four schools for next year. Kevin Schultz, the district’s director of buildings and grounds, presented the school board with $173,882 worth of security upgrades to the high school, Reagan Middle School and Jefferson and Washington elementary schools. The Lincoln Elementary School building will be closed after this school year. The upgrades include 16 s e c u r i t y Superintendent c a m e r a s a t Michael Juenger each school, recording equipment for the cameras, and vestibule upgrades at Reagan, Washington and Jefferson. There are more security upgrades that could be done to the high school, that weren’t included in the proposal, Superintendent Michael Juenger said, but with their high cost and the future of the high school being discussed during strategic planning, those additional upgrades will wait. Often, school shooters take the path of least resistance, Superintendent Michael Juenger said, so adding more secure entryways might make access for visitors more inconvenient, but it will be worth it.

TEEN TURF TO SERVE UP SOME SURF

‘Great time to stop by and pray’ Area Catholics called to ‘Be Reconciled’ BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 570

ROCKFORD – The Rockford Diocese is reaching out to Catholics during Lent with an intiative to make it easier for them to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The “Be Reconciled” effort has been launched throughout the diocese, which includes 105 parishes in 11 counties. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is also known as confession or penance. In the Catholic Church, parishioners confess their sins to a priest and are given absolution through doing penance.

$1.00

Bishop David Malloy asked all diocesan parishes to add April 9 to their regular confession schedules. Most churches will offer the sacrament from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on that day. Plans for a “Be Reconciled” day were announced this month during parish Masses. Traditionally, Lent is a 40-day period of fasting and prayer that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. This year, that is March 5 through April 19. Confession should be about honesty, not guilt, said the Rev. Bernard Sehr, parochial administrator at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Dixon.

DES: State netted 6,400 jobs in February CHICAGO (AP) – Unemployment held steady across Illinois in February at 8.7 percent, the state Department of Employment Security said Thursday. The statewide jobless rate was unchanged from January but remained well above the 6.7 percent national rate announced earlier this month by the federal government. Illinois has one of the highest jobless rates among U.S. states.

Trevor Mesner  OF !MBOYPM7EDNESDAYAT"ACON3TREETAND

Illinois nonetheless added a net 6,400 jobs in February, the department said. That’s an improvement from January when the state lost jobs. “February’s job numbers shows that our economy continues to improve. The snapshot is another positive piece in the long-term trend of economic growth building in Illinois,� department Director Jay Rowell said. “It also reminds us that more is needed

and expected because that economic success has yet to return to every household.� Companies in the professional and business services sector added 10,400 jobs in February, and leisure and hospitality employers added 4,000 jobs. But firms in trade, transportation and utilities cut 6,100 jobs. Manufacturing companies continued their decline in January by dropping a net 1,100

What are our biases? R

ecently, I wrote that the Republicans had a lot more competition in their primaries than the Democrats. I suggested that Democrats consider voting in the GOP primary, because key local races had no Democrats. The column prompted a Facebook discussion about political bias in our newspaper. One person wrote that we were keeping out news about Matt Becker, write-in candidate for the Democratic primary for the 90th House District, which is currently represented by Tom Demmer, R-Dixon, who is running unopposed in his primary. “Doesn’t the Shaw family back Demmer? And isn’t the Shaw family a part of the Sauk Valley Newspapers?

davidGIULIANI David Giuliani is a news editor for Sauk Valley Media. You can reach him at dgiuliani@ saukvalley. com or 800798-4085, ext. 525.

Hmmm. Weird. No wonder nobody has heard of Matt Becker!� one Facebook commenter wrote. Another poster, Tom Boken, noted – correctly – that Shaw Media CEO Tom Shaw donated $1,000 to Demmer’s campaign in the last go-around, in which he faced Boken. Actually, we have had references to Matt Becker in the newspaper. A couple of months ago, someone told me

about his candidacy but warned that Becker might not want to do an interview with us because of our CEO’s support of Republicans. I called Becker and told him I would be happy to interview him. He said he might get back with me. He didn’t. If you read the comments about our biases, you have found out that Sauk Valley Media’s newsroom dwellers are apparently loyal soldiers for Republican causes – until we aren’t. In another part of my column, I noted that public employee unions were trying to encourage their mostly Democratic members to ask for the GOP ballot so they could vote for the unionfriendly Kirk Dillard over the union-unfriendly Bruce Rauner.

That part of my column irritated at least one reader. “Giuliani’s little plug for Democrats to vote against Rauner is him letting his politics influence his writing. I’m sure he wouldn’t agree, but it’s obvious to everyone else, David.� Obvious to everyone, except for those who take the opposite view. For the record, Shaw Media endorsed Bruce Rauner, and this newspaper published the company’s editorial March 1. Am I in trouble? David Giuliani is a news editor for Sauk Valley Media.

Police: Worker reports robbery, then clams up BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 521

STERLING – A convenience store reported late Wednesday that an employee was missing, but after he turned up and mentioned a robbery, he refused to make a statement to police, an

official said Thursday. Casey’s General Store reported the employee missing just before midnight Wednesday, which led police to open an investigation. The employee later turned himself in to police about 5 or 5:30 a.m Thursday after he found

out they were looking for him, Sterling Police Sgt. Steve Hubbard said. During his discussions with officers, he mentioned something about a robbery, Hubbard said. After talking very briefly with police about the robbery, Hubbard said, the employee decided

DIXON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The strategic planning committee for Dixon Public Schools is expected to recommend that the school board hire a consulting firm to help with community engagement and input about the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future. The committee, made up of school board members, district staff and community members, has been meeting since June to evaluate the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facilities and decide if a master plan for the future should be put together. The committee met Thursday night and came to the consensus that the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facilities werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t adequate enough for students today and wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be in 20 years, if something wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done. The committee will meet again on April 3 to review and finalize a report of their 9 months of discussions, facility tours and meetings with architectural firms. That report will be presented to the school board during the April 9 meeting. The strategic planning committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation to the school board wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any specifics about which buildings need to be upgraded or replaced. Those decisions, the committee said, will

come from community engagement and input. Any major facility upgrades or new buildings in the future would have to be paid for though tax increase â&#x20AC;&#x201C; either sales or property tax â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and be approved by referendum on a ballot. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the engagement and input from the community is important, the committee said. The committee previously meet with representatives from two architectural firms about what the district could do to improve its schools, from adding a new high school to renovating all its buildings. A representative from each of those firms was at the meeting Thursday night. The decision about which firm to hire â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t limited to the two that met with the strategic planning committee â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will come from the school board.

OBITUARIES Mary Joan Hill STERLING â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mary Joan Hill, 82, of Sterling, died Monday, March 17, 2014, at her home.

St. Patrick also invites people to come to the church on April 9 for adoration, a time set aside for general prayer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great time to stop by and pray, even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to confession,â&#x20AC;? Sehr said. At St. Mary Church in Sterling, confession has also been offered in English and Spanish after many of the 8:30 a.m. daily Masses and from 1 to 3 p.m. during Lent. Because St. Mary is the only area Catholic Church with two priests, it also will help other churches with confessions. This is an opportunity to get people back to church and get those who never left in a better spiritual place, said the Rev. James Keenan, pastor at St. Mary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to show our presence in a very public way for people in need,â&#x20AC;? Keenan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a good time to seek out a priest, be reconciled, and feel good about the journey.â&#x20AC;? Keenan also stressed the important of being honest with oneself.

Bishop: Many long for reconciliation RECONCILED

FUNERAL SERVICES FOR THE WEEK

Lent and the Easter resurrection is a call to Catholics to always be prepared to meet God, Keenan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 40 days of Lent are preparation for that moment,â&#x20AC;? Keenan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll close our eyes for the last time. This is a reminder to always be ready and forgiven so we can meet him in purity and honesty.â&#x20AC;? In a letter to all Catholics announcing the initiative, Malloy stressed the importance of forgiveness as a Lenten theme. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As Catholics, the primary way to seek forgiveness year round, but especially during Lent, is through the Sacrament of Reconciliation,â&#x20AC;? the bishop said. Malloy also asked those in the diocese to reach out to each other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are many people who have felt the longing for reconciliation, but because of fear or other reasons, have put off going to confession,â&#x20AC;? Malloy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you know someone who has been away from the Sacrament of Reconciliation, invite them to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Be Reconciledâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on April 9 or anytime during Lent.â&#x20AC;?

Grant could cut deep into cost SAFER

CONTINUED FROM A1

The district applied for a grant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; worth $68,050 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; through the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, Schultz said, and could know in April whether it will receive the money. The school board sup-

ported moving forward with the project and wants to see a proposal, even without knowing whether the grant money would come through. If the district gets the grant, it will have to pay for $105,832 of the total cost. The $173,882 cost is an estimate from the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engineers, Schultz said.

The work could be paid for from the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tort fund, Juenger said, because the security upgrades are listed in the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s risk management plan. The tort fund can be used to develop and carry out risk management plans. It can also be used to fight litigation against the schools. It

comes from a tax levy. At the end of the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current fiscal year, the tort fund could have a balance of about $450,000, district officials said. The security upgrade work could be put out to bid in April, approved in May, and completed during the summer, Schultz said.

STERLING | PLAN COMMISSION

Property taxes for schools drop, Panel backs setback change Overlay district would compensate for wide right of ways but will level off BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com    EXT

NAY

STERLING â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There was a time when public roadways with 100-foot right of ways came in handy downtown near the river, but many things have changed since the city planners of yesteryear established them. The Plan Commission on Thursday recommended that the city establish a building setback overlay district for a primarily residential area that extends from portions of Wallace to 12th streets and incorporates some homes from Locust to 8th avenues. The setback would be reduced to zero to allow residents to make certain home improve-

CONTINUED FROM A1

The schools, Everett said, keep pushing for the 1 percent tax because they feel it will eventually pass. If the tax does not pass, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we will continue to fund our schools the same way.â&#x20AC;? Taxpayersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; money is funding school building improvements, not â&#x20AC;&#x153;luxuries,â&#x20AC;? Everett argued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are talking bricks and mortar and our heating and cooling systems,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those things are necessities.â&#x20AC;? Sometimes, people think the district paid for the artificial football field that was installed a couple of years ago, but that was entirely funded with private money, Everett said. In Lee County, the 1 percent sales tax for schools went before the voters a couple of times â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in November 2012 and April 2013. Unlike Whiteside County, support waned in Lee County. The first time, when Dixon school officials pledged to devote their money to a proposed sports and activities complex, 59 percent of voters rejected the tax, which would be countywide and apportioned to school districts based on their enrollments. Opposition increased to 72 percent in the second go-around, when Dixon designated any revenue from the tax to building improvements, not an activities complex. Property taxes for schools dropped this year, but will rise to the old level because the school board approved new health-life-safety bonds to pay for school improvements, including for roof repairs at Dixon High School, Dixon Superintendent Michael Juenger said.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;

It would be much easier to reduce the setback for front yards to zero.

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Dustin Wolff, city planning consultant

ments, such as adding a porch. City planning consultant Dustin Wolff said the 100-foot right of ways are very wide for a residential area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of these houses are set way back, making it look like they have a really big front yard, but with the curb and right of way, they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything with it,â&#x20AC;? Wolff said. The issue was brought to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention by

several frustrated residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people have come in about adding a porch or making some other improvement, and they were told they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it with the big right of way,â&#x20AC;? Building and Zoning Superintendent Amanda Schmidt said. Setting up the overlay district would be the better of two options, Wolff said. The city owns the right of ways and could have given them back to property owners, but the city would have had to redraw boundaries. Changing the right of way would cost tens of thousand of dollars, Wolff said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be much easier to reduce the setback

for front yards to zero,â&#x20AC;? Wolff said. Commissioner Karen Chevalier asked if there would be any additional taxes for property owners. She was told the setback change would not affect property taxes. The wide right of ways were likely established long ago, in case the downtown area became more commercial, rather than residential. If the City Council approves the overlay district setback change, there would still be about 25 feet between the front yards and sidewalks, Wolff said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just want to change the code to reflect todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation,â&#x20AC;? Wolff said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to encourage people to invest in their homes.â&#x20AC;?

Michael Krabbenhoeft/ mkrabbenhoeft@saukvalley.com

Despite vocal support for a sales tax to pay for school facilities in Lee County, voters there have twice rejected the request. State health-life-safety codes require that schools to keep their buildings in good shape. In recent months, the school district has been seeking public input on a long-term plan for schools. One building that has been the subject of much discussion is Dixon High School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a flat-out beautiful building,â&#x20AC;? said Juenger, who indicated a 90-yearold building might not meet todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learning needs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We use space differently today than we did in the 1920s,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can you have the shell and turn the inside into something a little more conducive to educating kids today? A little of the downside is that it sits on 13 acres, so we are limited. We have started having discussions with the community.â&#x20AC;?

The fight for public access I

llinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; journey toward greater transparency and openness in government made progress last year. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good news for every supporter of good government in a state notorious for government corruption. In honor of Sunshine Week, Attorney General Lisa Madigan released a 2013 report of activities by her officeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Public Access Bureau. The bureau was formalized when Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; transparency law overhaul took effect in 2010, a year after Gov. Rod Blagojevich was booted from office. The overhaul strengthened the Illinois Freedom of Information Act and Open Meetings Act, which are designed to ensure public access to government records and meetings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; letting the sun shine on the darkest recesses of government, so to speak, to expose illegal and unethical actions. The Public Access Bureau is the place where citizens and news reporters can ask for help when FOIA records

SPRINGFIELD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; One of my favorite books is John Steinbeckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Grapes of Wrath.â&#x20AC;? In that epic tome, farmers from across Oklahoma load up all of their earthly goods onto Model Tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and flee the Dust Bowl for California in the midst of the Great Depression. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to see that great exodus along Route 66 as the face of migration from one state to another. And, to be sure, that is one face of relocation. Poor folks still load up dilapidated cars with what they own and seek out opportunity. I saw it all the time when I was reporter in Las Vegas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; families showing up with not much but their dreams and hopes of landing a well-paying job. But that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only face of migration. When corporate executives or well-heeled retirees move, it is done with professional movers. And you can often discern who the wealthiest of these households are by the amount of furniture and other belongings they have shipped. The Wall Street Journal recently looked at data from Allied Van Lines concerning where wealthy households were moving to and from. The report found that Illinois and Pennsylvania have more wealthy households leaving than arriving. And California leads the nation for the net number of wealthy households migrating away. And states gaining the most? Florida and Texas. So, what do East Coast, Midwest and West Coast states like Pennsylvania, Illinois and California have in common? All three are high-tax states, said Joseph Henchman, a vice president at the Tax Foundation. On the other hand, Florida and Texas are much lower tax states. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Illinois is particularly vulnerable to more outmigration because its neighbors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Wisconsin and Indiana â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are busy lowering their taxes,â&#x20AC;? Henchman added. ON THE OTHER HAND, the Illinois Legislature jacked up our income taxes by 67 percent back in 2011. This has hurt folks from all economic groups. And for folks who make their living making business decisions, it has created one more incentive to leave Illinois. While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to shrug off the rich guy across town leaving, there is good reason for all of us to be concerned. Have you ever worked for

a business person poorer than yourself? Me neither. Even those working in the public sector need to remember where taxes come from to pay for their jobs. And yet, Illinois is consistently pursuing policies that push those job creators to more hospitable business climates. And where those jobs go, poor and middle-class Illinoisans are sure to follow. This migration translates into real money, according to Travis Brown,

Metro

When people pack up moving boxes and leave Illinois, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just take their household belongings. Their money also leaves â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a problem that bodes ill for Illinois, according to columnist Scott Reeder. author of the book â&#x20AC;&#x153;How Money Walks,â&#x20AC;? a project that measures where people are moving based on tax returns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Illinois as a state lost $29.27 billion over the 18 years from 1992 to 2010,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. DURING THAT PERIOD, only California and New York lost more income than Illinois, his study found. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a loss of $185,000 per hour. We forecast that between 2010 and 2014, Illinois lost somewhere between $5.4 billion and $7 billion in adjusted gross income due to migration,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. Illinois is in that minority of states that continue to levy an estate tax. And increasingly estate planners are advising retired, successful Illinoisans to consider moving to a state without an estate tax so assets can be passed more easily from one generation to the next. That hurts all of us. When successful retirees leave, they are no longer spending money in the Land of Lincoln, paying taxes here or donating to Illinois charities. And that equates to fewer jobs for the rest of us. And, ultimately, that is why all of us should be concerned.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Best leadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; appears in search for plane Two objects seen in Indian Ocean

AP

Selamat Omar, 60, father of one of the passengers aboard a missing Malaysia Airlines plane, speaks to the media Thursday at a hotel in Putrajaya, Malaysia.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A freighter used searchlights early Friday to scan rough seas in one of the remotest places on Earth after satellite images detected possible pieces from the missing Malaysia Airlines plane in the southern Indian Ocean. In what officials called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;best leadâ&#x20AC;? of the nearly 2-week-old aviation mystery, a satellite detected two objects

floating about 1,000 miles off the coast of Australia and halfway to the desolate islands of the Antarctic. The development raised new hope of finding the vanished jet and sent another emotional jolt to the families of the 239 people aboard. One of the objects on the satellite image was almost 80 feet long and the other was 15 feet. There could be other objects in the area a 4-hour flight from southwestern Australia, said John Young, manager of

the Australian Maritime Safety Authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency response division. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a lead, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably the best lead we have right now,â&#x20AC;? Young said. He cautioned that the objects could be seaborne debris along a shipping route where containers can fall off cargo vessels, although the larger object is longer than a container. Four military planes searched the area Thursday without success but will resume later Friday morning, Australian officials said. The Norwegian cargo

vessel Hoegh St. Petersburg, with a Filipino crew of 20, arrived in the area and used searchlights after dark to look for debris. It will continue the search today, said Ingar Skiaker of Hoegh Autoliners, speaking to reporters in Oslo. The Norwegian ship, which transports cars, was on its way from South Africa to Australia, he said. The Australian Maritime Safety Authority said another commercial ship and an Australian navy vessel were also en route to the search area.

ELECTION 2014 | ILLINOIS GOVERNOR RACE

Longtime Dems supporting Rauner Hardiman carries 30 counties in primary

Candidate speaks in downtown Chicago CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Several well-known Democratic supporters, including longtime allies of President Barack Obama, said Thursday that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re backing Republican venture capitalist Bruce Rauner for Illinois governor, signaling that the campaign will focus on swing voters crucial to winning in the heavily Democratic state. Rauner spoke Thursday at a downtown Chicago hotel, flanked by some of the more than 20 supporters heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s billing as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Democrats and Independents for Rauner.â&#x20AC;? He said his approach to solving the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems has nothing to do with political affiliation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Solving problems is not partisan, leadership is not partisan ... consensus building is not partisan,â&#x20AC;? Rauner said. Backers include longtime Obama supporter and former Federal Communications Commission Chairman Newton Minow, 88, who said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking â&#x20AC;&#x153;a leave of absence from my partyâ&#x20AC;? to support Rauner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Illinois is in desperate shape ...

ELECTION 2014 | ILLINOIS RACES

Most lawmakers survive primary CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Illinois state lawmakers facing tough votes in an election year might be emboldened by the results of Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary, which show that most incumbents survived challenges from within their own party, even if they supported pension reform or gay marriage. But two incumbent Democrats lost, despite backing from Democratic leaders such as powerful Speaker Michael Madigan, delivering a mixed message not to underestimate the power of organized labor, which delivers key financial support and votes to the party. Though the wins came by slim margins, two of three Democratic state lawmakers who defied labor unions and backed pension reform will advance to the general election. Both House Republicans who faced primary challenges for breaking with party conservatives and supporting gay marriage were also successful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to vote my conscience, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to vote my district and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not just going to vote for a Republican primary crowd,â&#x20AC;? state GOP Rep. Ron Sandack said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m helping devise a roadmap for larger

electoral success for our party.â&#x20AC;? Sandack, a first-term lawmaker and former Downers Grove mayor, eked out a 153-vote primary victory over Waubonsie High School teacher Keith Matune, who saw conservative political action committees spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to bolster his campaign with television ads and mailers criticizing Sandack for â&#x20AC;&#x153;getting in bed with the radical left to get reelected.â&#x20AC;? Sandackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fellow House Republican, Rep. Ed Sullivan of Mundelein, also survived a challenge fueled by conservative groups unhappy with his

vote for same-sex marriage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I found out I have a fiscally conservative and very common sense compassionate district,â&#x20AC;? Sullivan said. On the Democratic side, organized labor groups failed to defeat some Democratic House members from Chicago who supported the pension overhaul. The measure, approved by lawmakers in December, is estimated to save $145 billion over 30 years, largely by cutting worker benefits. State Rep. Christian Mitchell narrowly bested Jhatayn â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jayâ&#x20AC;? Travis, a community organizer who had hundreds of thousands of dollars in union support.

SPRINGFIELD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Gov. Pat Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lesserknown challenger managed to win 30 counties in this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary, even though the Chicago Democrat easily won the race with more than 70 percent of the vote. An analysis of Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s results by the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers shows a divide in support for the governor, particularly in communities further away from his home base of Cook County. Unofficial tallies show Tio Hardiman, an antiviolence activist, carrying 30 of 102 counties, including Christian, Shelby and Moultrie counties in Central Illinois and Randolph, Franklin, Perry and Williamson counties in southern Illinois. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given where most of that dissatisfaction came

from, that just confirms the fact that the governor has significant weaknesses downstate,â&#x20AC;? said University of IllinoisSpringfield political scientist Kent Redfield. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something he has to address.â&#x20AC;? The lack of support from those counties wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to keep Quinn from handily winning on Tuesday when he captured 316,746 votes. Hardiman received 123,918. Brunell Donald, Hardimanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s running mate, said the support the pair received should prompt Quinn to pay close attention to the sentiment in some areas of Illinois. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People say it was a protest vote. I think it means people are hurting and they want a change,â&#x20AC;? Donald said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here. Please take care of us ,as well.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Mexican heritage shows itself Pilsen-based museum has programs, four galleries BY ANDREA MILLS amills@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 575

CHICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The National Museum of Mexican Art contains a wealth of knowledge and culture. Its exhibits range from folk art to photographs, textiles to prints. Amboy resident G.G. Garcia is a museum member, who visits there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The museum is housed in a modern building in the Pilsen area,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always manage to find free parking on the streets, and of course, admission is free.

LAKE ZURICH

Suburban bourbon part of growing trend in Illinois In a year, craft distillery licenses double in state BY BOB SUSNJARA $AILY(ERALD

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Small batches of gin, bourbon and other spirits are leading a business growth spurt in Illinois. Craft distillery licenses have about doubled in Illinois in the past year, and Copper Fiddle Distilleryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planned debut in Lake Zurich this week is the latest example of the industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expansion. Illinois is part of a national craft distillery boom, which experts say is occurring because of changes in state laws in favor of the industry, and drinkers wanting something different. American Craft Distillers Association Executive Director Penn Jensen compares the artisan hard liquor producers to when the craft beer movement was in its early stages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the first thing [with small distilleries], as with craft beer, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an expansion of tastes, an expansion of your palate,â&#x20AC;? Jensen said. Despite the enthusiasm about craft distilleries, Chicago-based whiskey expert Charles K. Cowdery said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an easy business, particularly for those who want to make a living at it. He said distillers must be visitor-friendly in location, layout and employees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be hyperlocal. People like the idea of supporting their neighborhood booze-maker. Cultivate that like crazy, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry too much about conquering the world,â&#x20AC;? said Cowdery, whose latest book is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bourbon, Straight: The Uncut and Unfiltered Story of American Whiskey.â&#x20AC;?

Liquor Control Commission show there are now 19 licensed craft distilleries, with seven of them in suburban Cook and Lake counties and six in Chicago. State law limits the small producers to 30,000 gallons of distilled spirits per year. Five craft distilleries were licensed in 2011, a year after a law made the industry possible and allowed on-site direct sales to the public, according to the liquor control commission. Nationwide, the American Craft Distillers Association projects the number to jump from about 320 to 1,000 licensed operations by the end of 2015. Fewer than 60 craft distilleries existed in the United States in the early 2000s, according to the association. Florida and Indiana enacted new laws last year that craft distillery proponents said make it easier to open and sell directly to consumers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The states are just beginning to realize Prohibition is over,â&#x20AC;? Jensen said.

Trust in the Lord Given the uncertainty of so much in our lives, the advice to trust in the Lord is almost always good advice.This is one of my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite expressions, and while that gives me a certain fondness for the expression, I must admit that I am sometimes slightly irritated when told to trust in the Lord.The irritation comes from the sense that we have given up on solving the problem or issue ourselves and are relying now on God to solve our problem. But given the feebleness of most of our efforts, and the weakness of our minds to grasp all the complexities of most situations, we certainly need Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help. It is YWYEPP] TVMHI TVMHI MR SYV S[R IJ½GEG] ERH SYV S[R YRHIVWXERHMRK [LMGL QEOIW YW XLMRO [I GER WSPZI SYV TVSFPIQW EPP by ourselves.There is nothing wrong with being a good problem solver, and indeed, the better we are at solving problems, the better our lives will be, both at home and at work, but we should always still realize that there are huge gaps in our understanding.We just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, but should trust that God has everything under control.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.â&#x20AC;? Proverbs 3:5

Bill Watterson said, “Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.” Bear that in mind as the weekend is about to start. However, another of those words is relevant to today’s North hand: pointless. And sometimes you have to bid with a true Yarborough. South opens two clubs, strong, artificial and forcing. North responds two diamonds, weak, artificial and forcing. South rebids two spades, natural and forcing. What should North do now? Usually, with a very bad hand, responder gives a second negative: either two no-trump (traditional) or three clubs (modern), according to partnership preference.

Here, though, with four-card support for opener’s major, responder should jump to four of that major. This indicates at least four trumps but no first- or second-round

control: no ace, void, king or singleton. Against four spades, West leads the heart queen. How should South plan the play? Declarer has two heart losers, so can afford only one trump loser, not two. There is just one layout that will save South: either opponent must have a singleton queen. Declarer should take the first trick and lead his spade king. And because this deal is seeing the light of day, you just know that will work. Finally, South might have rebid three no-trump, which North would have passed because he could not be sure of an eight-card majorsuit fit. (This is a bad sequence for Standard.) Then, if West had led a club, South would have had to make the same spade play. © 2014 UFS

BUSINESS OF BAD BREATH

Chew on this: Gum loses its pop in U.S. Sales down 11 percent over last 4 years NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Gum seems as appealing as that sticky wad on the bottom of a shoe these days. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that Americans donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever enjoy a stick of Trident or Orbit, the two most popular brands. They just arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as crazy about chomping away on the stuff as they once were, with U.S. sales tumbling 11 percent over the past 4 years. No one in the industry can pinpoint a single factor thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s causing the decline â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the theories include an unwillingness to shell out $2 or more for a pack in the bad economy, or that advertising veered too far from underlining gumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cavity-fighting benefits. But the biggest reason might be that people simply have more to chew on. From designer mints to fruit chews, candy companies have invented plenty of other ways to get a sugar fix or battle bad breath and

anxiety. The alternatives donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come with gumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unpleasant characteristics either, like the question of whether to spit out or gulp the remains. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also less likely to annoy parents, co-workers or romantic interests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You talk to someone and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just chomping on gum,â&#x20AC;? said Matt Smith, a 46-year-old who lives Albany, N.Y. and hates gum so much he refers to it only by its first letter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you substitute gum for any other food, like mashed potatoes, would you find that acceptable? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disgusting.â&#x20AC;? The gum-chewing habit dates as far back as the ancient Greeks, but arrived in the United States in its modern form in the 1860s, according to Mars Inc., the No. 1 player in the market with its Wrigley unit. Over the years, gummakers positioned it as a

A garbage bin sits full of bubble gum in October 2010 at Yankee Stadium, in New York. U.S. gum sales tumbled 11 percent over the past 4 years. way to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kiss a Little Lon- characters included the gerâ&#x20AC;? in the famous Big â&#x20AC;&#x153;Doublemint Twinsâ&#x20AC;? and Red jingle, quit smok- Orbitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blonde spokesing, curb cravings or just woman who ends commake the chewer hap- mercials with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dirty pier. Catchy slogans or mouth? Clean it up.â&#x20AC;?

It popped up in pop culture, too. In the 1960s, a genre of music aimed at younger audiences came to be known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bubblegum.â&#x20AC;? In the 1975 movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;One Flew Over the Cuckooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nest,â&#x20AC;? the silent Chief Bromden speaks for the first time saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mmm, Juicy Fruitâ&#x20AC;? after the character played by Jack Nicholson gives him a stick of the gum. And Janet Jackson played a feisty, gumchewing beautician in the 1993 film â&#x20AC;&#x153;Poetic Justice.â&#x20AC;? But gumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image as a tasteless habit also stuck, with some high-profile gum chewing only making it worse. In 2003, Britney Spears gave an interview to CNN

where a white piece of gum could be seen floating around her mouth as she fielded questions on a range of topics, including the war in Iraq. Talk show host Wendy Williams has a â&#x20AC;&#x153;gum wallâ&#x20AC;? backstage, where she sticks wads of it before walking out. In one episode, she told Patti LaBelle that she could put her gum on the wall after the singer spit out a wad into her hand. Such imagery might be why gum is still a no-no in business meetings or first dates, according to Lizzie Post, the greatgreat granddaughter of etiquette expert Emily Post and co-author of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Emily Postâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Etiquette.â&#x20AC;?

Clippers hope to build on regional title three-peat March not important to all

BY TY REYNOLDS treynolds@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext 554

A decade and a half ago, the Amboy Clippers started up their softball program … and immediately suffered through back-to-back winless springs in 2001 and 2002. In a relatively short time, Amboy has done a complete 180. The Clippers come into this spring as a three-time defending regional champion, and several familiar faces are poised to keep that streak alive. And while graduation has hit Amboy hard the past couple of seasons, there is still plenty of talent and experience to carry on the recent tradition of success.The Clippers boast three seniors and a junior who are starting their third varsity seasons, and another junior who is on track to be a 3-year varsity starter before her career is over. “We have a lot of girls who know what’s expected of them, know what it takes to be leaders,” said Kelly Whitman, who’s entering her seventh season as Amboy’s head coach. “They’ve been in a position to have success before, and hopefully they’ll carry that over, and it will carry them to push even farther.”

T

his was madness. About two dozen people filled the McHenry Public Library on Thursday, oblivious to the brackets and buckets and buzzer-beaters that had arrived with the start of the NCAA tournament. Some people in the library gathered at tables, chatting softly between stacks of hardcover books. Others sat in silence in front of desktop screens, guiding computer mice with human hands. Library associate Zach Terrill sat beneath a black-and-white sign that read “QUESTIONS?” Uh, yeah. I had one. Why in the world was nobody here watching basketball? “I’m just not that interested,” Terrill, 23, said with a smile and a shrug. “I think it’s kind of crazy. But people think that other things are crazy, too, that I don’t think are so crazy.” Yes, good point. But this seemed crazy. As a sports-obsessed kid, I always felt as if a few events deserved their own special holidays. Baseball’s opening day should have counted for one. The same held true for the NFL’s wild-card weekend, and any day in which I had a fantasy football draft. But no 2 days were more exciting than the first Thursday and Friday of the NCAA tournament.

Neighbor’s turn to shine Craft’s last-second shot clanks off rim in Buckeyes’ loss BY JOHN WAWROW AP Sports Writer

BUFFALO, N.Y. – Aaron Craft’s career at Ohio State ended with a thud. The senior guard was left lying on his back in the lane, looking up toward the rafters after his driving 10-foot jumper rolled off the rim, sealing 11th-seeded Dayton’s 60-59 victory over the sixth-seeded Buckeyes in the second round of the NCAA tournament on Thursday. “I just wanted to do everything I could to help our team win, AP and down the stretch I couldn’t Dayton teammates embrace Vee Sanford after defeating Ohio do that today,” Craft said. “I can State on Thursday in the second round of the NCAA tournament. take the blame for that.” Sanford hit the winning shot in a 60-59 victory.

But he couldn’t steal away a victory in what became the Buckeyes’ earliest tournament exit since a first-round 74-72 overtime loss to Siena in 2009. Vee Sanford hit a layup with 3.8 seconds left to seal the win

for Dayton (24-10) in a showdown of Ohio schools separated by just 75 miles. The basket came some 12 seconds after Craft had put the Buckeyes ahead by making a reverse layup. It just so happened that Sanford scored by getting a step around Craft, a two-time Big Ten defensive player of the year. “There so many things that are going through my mind right now that I wish could have gone differently, but they didn’t,” Craft said. “He made a big-time play, and we couldn’t come back.”

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take a village Blackhawks will need team effort to replace Kane

Baseball

BY CHRIS KUC #HICAGO4RIBUNE

4:30 p.m.

Joel Quenneville stood on the podium in the United Center press room Wednesday night and announced Patrick Kane would miss 3 weeks with an apparent left knee injury, marking one of the few occasions this season the Blackhawks will experience a significant injury to a top player. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Kane] is a special player, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to work our way through it knowing what he brings to our team,â&#x20AC;? Quenneville said, after the winger limped off the ice during the Hawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 4-0 victory over the Blues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely a huge loss for us, but â&#x20AC;Ś weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been fortunate as far as not getting hit too hard [with injuries].â&#x20AC;? Bryan Bickell (14 games), Michal Handzus (14), Corey Crawford (10), and Marian Hossa (five) have been sidelined for stretches with injuries, but in the grand scheme of things, the Hawks have dodged the bullets during 2013-14. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get tested at some point,â&#x20AC;? Quenneville said. That point is now, as Kane could miss the remaining 12 games of the regular season for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who are battling the Blues and Avalanche at the top of the Central Division standings. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no easy task considering Kaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playmaking ability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the power play or the quality or the quantity of the ice time that [Kane] absorbs, everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to get a little bit more,â&#x20AC;? Quenneville said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That four-line rotation that makes us consistent a lot of games is something that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to exaggerate even [more] as we go along.â&#x20AC;? Helping matters is the impending return of Brandon Saad, who has missed two games with an upper-body injury. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible the winger will be in the lineup when the Hawks play host to the

Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane will miss the next 3 weeks with a left leg injury. Replacing the dynamic forwardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to score will be difficult for the defending Stanley Cup champions. Hurricanes on Friday night. Strong play from Bickell and Ben Smith would be huge, as both forwards have come on in the last couple of weeks and figure to see increased ice time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every game is getting more and more like playoff hockey,â&#x20AC;? said Bickell, who appears to have found his game after a long struggle returning from a knee injury. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brings my game out more, and gets me more physically in the game.â&#x20AC;? The under-the-radar acquisition of Peter Regin via trade with the Islanders on Feb. 6 bolstered the Hawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; depth, and the veteran could see a larger role. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible the Hawks will make a move to help bolster their offense. Jeremy Morin would be the leading candidate to be recalled from Rockford. The winger has had three stints with the Hawks this season, and is the IceHogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; leading goalscorer with 24 in 47 games. And then there is top offensive prospect Teuvo Teravainen. With his Finnish Elite league season concluded, the intriguing forward is expected to join the organization shortly after arriving

Thursday in Chicago. But to add Teravainen, 19, to the roster, the Hawks would need to clear space under the salary cap. Placing Kane on the long-term injured list, meaning he definitely would be unavailable for 10 games, would solve that issue. Still, Teravainen has yet to face the level and depth of NHL competition. He has been working on getting stronger, but whether he can display the two-way skills Quenneville demands of his forwards remains to be seen. Also, if Teravainen plays 10 games this season (including the playoffs), he would burn a year on his 3-year entry-level contract. General manager Stan Bowman must weigh the possibility of a significant impact from Teravainen in a run to the Cup, and a potential earlier large payday for the 18th overall selection of the 2012 draft. Another player suddenly in the mix is forward Matt Carey, whom the Hawks signed to a 2-year free-agent deal Thursday. Carey, 22, had 18 goals and 19 assists in 38 games as a freshman this season at St. Lawrence University.

Where guards go to thrive Augustin feels like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s found a home in Chicago BY K.C. JOHNSON #HICAGO4RIBUNE

Beyond the minor detail of focusing on providing much-needed offense for the NBAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lowest-scoring team, D.J. Augustin isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kidding when he says his attention isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on his impending free agency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having a son in May during the playoffs,â&#x20AC;? Augustin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be my offseason. Once the season is over, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be in straight daddy mode with two children and trying to adjust to that.â&#x20AC;? If Augustin has his way, the newborn wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to adjust to a new address. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love it here, and definitely want to be here,â&#x20AC;? Augustin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the city. I love the fans. I love my teammates. I love playing for [Tom Thibodeau], who brings the best out of you. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m comfortable here. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m comfortable with the system. I think I can continue playing well here. But I understand itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a business.â&#x20AC;? Indeed, Augustin doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showdown with the Eastern Conferenceleading Pacers to remind him of that detail. But it could. In 2012, Augustin ended a messy exit from Charlotte when he got

2014 SOFTBALL | SCOUTING THE THREE RIVERS NORTH

Clippers primed for another good year SUCCESS

CONTINUED FROM B1

Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior class was the first 4-year group at Amboy to have played for the Rage, a local ASA travel team. Whitman credits that summer experience for the number of 3- and even 4-year varsity players the Clippers have had. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also helped the team to adapt to whatever strengths present themselves. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad made up for the loss of star pitcher Kiara Kaleel to graduation by picking up the slack with some big bats and providing some strong run support for senior hurler Lauren Akre. This year, Whitman and her coaching staff are relying on experience to carry the day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as well as some talent both in the field and at the plate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as the Clippers will use â&#x20AC;&#x153;pitching by committee,â&#x20AC;? led by freshman Karlee Doege. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to play tight defense and have a good offense,â&#x20AC;? junior catcher Kaitlyn Liebing said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of us have been around the game our whole lives, and we know the game really well, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes an all-around strong team.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;All-aroundâ&#x20AC;? is a phrase that comes up more than once when talking about Amboy softball. Senior second baseman Kelsie Thurman also used it to describe what the Clippers will hang their hats on this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got strengths everywhere, all around the field,â&#x20AC;? Thurman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just a hitting team or just a defensive team. That gives us a lot of confidence that we can win no matter whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not working.â&#x20AC;? In addition to notoriety, the Clippersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; success has also improved the chemistry in the dugout.

&RIDAY -ARCH 

It also means thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very few question marks when it comes to who plays where in the field, who hits where in the batting order, and who can be relied on in the clutch or on the big stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty comfortable together,â&#x20AC;? junior shortstop Madeline Ely said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve stuck together, really stuck up for each other, and we know our teammates have our backs and will always pick us up if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having an off day. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good feeling to know that, and we want to keep that going.â&#x20AC;? As the success has come, the vibes surrounding the program have become increasingly positive â&#x20AC;Ś which, in turn, feeds into the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success. While the self-fulfilling cycle seems never-ending, the current Clippers know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a relatively recent development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken, and we appreciate it,â&#x20AC;? Liebing said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a really strong program historically, but since weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve started winning a lot more the previous few years, softball has become a bigger deal in Amboy â&#x20AC;Ś and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to keep that going this year.â&#x20AC;? The best way to do that would be to win another regional title, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all the Clippers have on their minds. Taking that next postseason step, and continuing the recent Amboy legacy, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t far behind on that train of thought. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel like we can win a fourth regional in a row â&#x20AC;Ś and maybe even go farther,â&#x20AC;? Thurman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come to high school, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been pretty fortunate to be on some great teams, with some great teammates, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won a regional title every year. Everybody expects success now, and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want that to stop now.â&#x20AC;?

MILWAUKEE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Glenn Robinson III scored 14 points, and secondseeded Michigan started its quest for a second straight trip to the Final Four by beating 15thseeded Wofford 57-40. The Wolverines (26-8) capitalized on their decisive edge in athleticism on the undersized Terriers (20-13), but still had some nervous moments after missing 15 of their first 18 shots in the second half. Karl Cochranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-pointer with 9:25 left whittled an 18-point deficit to 40-33. But the Wolverines regrouped, and Caris LeVertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3 with 4:17 left gave them a 15-point lead to deflate Woffordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dreams of an upset. Cochran finished with 17 points.

Astrograph A love connection is possible. Friday, March 21, 2014 Stick to proven methods in the year ahead. Your abilities and know-how will continue to bring you success. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t succumb to someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategy. Have the confidence to carefully pursue your goal; a risky move could erase your hard work. Aim to please, but stick to your game plan. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It may take some extra effort on your part to get things moving. Take your time, be persistent, and prepare to change your tactics if you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting the desired results. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Financial opportunities are present. Someone may try to include you in a dubious situation. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t damage your reputation or your integrity by becoming involved in something that goes against your beliefs. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A new solution to an old problem will come your way. Show concern and diplomacy when needed. Your objectivity and honesty may be called upon to defuse a professional disagreement.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Be more aggressive in your drive to get ahead. Decisive action will give you the payoff you are looking for. If you hesitate, you will miss out on an important opportunity.

Your confidence and ability make you a dynamic presence. Utilize all of your talents, and you will be sure to advance. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Try not to get stuck on one thing when there is so much to do. Your energy level is high, and you will accomplish more if you show greater diversity.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You may be easygoing, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow anyone to treat you badly. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand up for yourself now, you will be taken for granted in the future. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - You will soon see the benefits of your hard work. A project that interests you will be successful if you keep your intentions under your hat for the time being.
