DIXON PUBLIC SCHOOLS | STRATEGIC PLANNING

New store in Dixon

Time for new buildings? Task force: District’s schools inadequate for educational needs BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5529

DIXON – The strategic planning task force will recommend that the school board develop a plan to address what it calls inadequate schools in the district and hire a consulting firm

to help with the process. The recommendation will be given during the next board meeting on Wednesday, in the form of a report summarizing the task force’s 8 months of meetings, building tours and discussions with architectural firms.

Task force members met Thursday night to review, edit and finalize a draft of the document. The plan – or blueprint – developed by the district and a consulting firm will look at how the school district can address its aging facilities. Rea-

gan Middle School, the newest building, was built in 1959. Dixon is at a tipping point in regard to the facilities, the task force said in its report, and it can’t put the issue off any longer. BUILDINGS CONTINUED ON A4

LOTTERY ............. A2 OBITUARIES ........ A4 OPINION .............. A6

STERLING – The Sterling man who was injured in an apparent hit-and-run accident late Tuesday night is now in serious condition in a Rockford hospital – an upgrade from his condition Wednesday. Jacob Carr, 20, was found in the 300 block of West Fifth Street about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, when a resident informed police. Carr, who was unresponsive, is believed to have been hit by a car at some point in the previous hour, police said. Sterling Police Chief Ron Potthoff said in an interview Thursday that police found a small piece of a car, but he declined to say what was found. He urged residents to think about their surroundings and alert police if they have any tips. “If you know anyone who has a fresh dent in their car, or is missing parts on their car, or might be hiding their car, ...” Potthoff said. “Anybody who notices anything, no matter how insignificant, should give us a call.” Carr was taken to CGH Medical Center’s emergency room, before being airlifted to OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center in Rockford. Police said they didn’t know Carr’s identity until a family member identified him about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday. Carr was a former Newman Central Catholic High School student. On Sunday, he wrote on Facebook, “If you have God in your life, you will accomplish anything,” saying his status was “feeling good.” On Tuesday, he shared a friend’s status, “Success is a state of mind.” Anyone with information is asked to call police at 815-6326640 or Crime Stoppers at 815625-7867.

ROCK RIVER FORUM

Plenty of questions for Forum’s guest at meeting Sterling mayor asked about rental inspections, riverfront development BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com    EXT

STERLING – The proposed rental inspections program being developed by the cities of Rock Falls and Sterling is about safety not aesthetics, Sterling Mayor Skip Lee says. Lee was at the Sterling Public Library on Thursday evening to field questions as the guest of the Rock River Open Forum. Shane Celestino of Sterling questioned the constitutionality of such programs. “The same arguments are made whenever something is regulated for the first time,� Lee said. “Multiple legal opinions support what we want to do. Once it is implemented, I think it it will work out fine.� Although he believes the

overwhelming majority in both cities are good landlords, Lee feels that the program is needed to untie the hands of city officials in certain cases where public safety is compromised. “Code enforcement pretty much works on a complaint basis now,� Lee said. “We can issue citations for outdoor things, but the only way you can get inside is with a tenant complaint or a warrant.� It can be particularly difficult if a property is in what Lee calls “foreclosure purgatory� or there are out-of-town owners. The fact that the cities are working together on the program should make it run more efficiently, Lee said. “[Rock Falls building inspector] Mark Searing has worked with build-

Yes, but the two cities together will have more resources to work on it.� The mayor also was asked about progress on the riverfront development. He said the first phase has focused on health, safety and infrastructure. That involves

getting the Environmental Protection Agency’s stamp of approval – no further remediation. A $2.2 million state EPA grant was secured for a greenspace project along the riverfront. The city is acquiring the former National Manufacturing property. The donation agreement calls for Stanley to assume

STERLING

responsibility for cleaning up any underground contaminants associated with the planned demolition of buildings. The city would be liable for above-ground contaminants such as asbestos and lead paint that would likely have to be dealt with during the renovation process. The city has said it plans to take down 6 of the 10 buildings included in the agreement. The estimated demolition cost would be $1.5 million to $1.7 million. The Lawrence Brothers property is a bit of a question mark, the mayor said. “We’re still assessing what we have with that building,� Lee said. “That area is more open, so keeping people out has been a problem.� Several people at the meeting were in agreement with the mayor’s belief in the untapped potential of Lawrence Park. Building up and

securing the river banks in that area has been a problem, and the shallow water limits its recreational use. John Espinoza, a Whiteside County Board member, said the old buildings slated for demolition could be a tool in solving that problem. “When we’re tearing up concrete from the plant and the Rock Falls Limestone Building, we could use the materials to build up the banks,� Espinoza said. “Milwaukee did something similar along their riverfront. We can build it up and use the rock to protect it.� Development doesn’t come cheap, the mayor reminds the group. “About $60 million is needed just on our side for riverfront development,� Lee said. “The reality it that the state of Illinois, and the cities of Sterling and Rock Falls are not infinite pots of money.�

STERLING – Fresh meat on wheels has come to the Twin Cities. Former NFL player Sean Considine, 32, will park his business, Headon & Considine’s Market, at Northland Mall, 2900 E. Lincolnway, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays. Despite the gloomy weather, business was brisk on opening day Thursday, Considine said. The former Baltimore Ravens safety, a native of Byron, teamed up with Headon’s Meat and Catering in Creston to create the mobile meat market, the only one of its kind in the state, Considine has said. The meat is cut at the butcher shop that morning and brought to customers in the distinctive refrigerated trailer. The customized refrigerated trailer from which he sells New York strip steak,

workers could replace a valve. The unit was in being restarted when smoke was detected around 1:40 p.m. The alert was lifted around 9:30 p.m. Exelon officials say the unit is stable and another unit remains at full power. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission says there were no abnormal releases of radioactive material and no one was injured.

Dave’s late night about to end Letterman announces plan to retire in 2015 -#4.EWS3ERVICE

NEW YORK – Get ready for another late-night shake-up. David Letterman is preparing to retire from “The Late Show� in 2015, the comedian announced Thursday. The host, who turns 67 this month, plans to say goodnight to his hosting duties once his contract expires next year. The news, which first leaked via Twitter, was later confirmed by Tom Keaney, a spokesman for Letterman’s production company, Worldwide Pants. Before a “Late Show� audience at the Ed Sullivan Theater in Manhattan, Letterman revealed how he had called CBS chief executive Les Moonves to say he would be retiring. “I just want to reiterate my thanks for the support from the network, all of the people who have worked here, all of the people in the theater, all the people on the staff, everybody at home, thank you very much,� Letterman said. “What this means now, is that Paul and I can be married,� Letterman joked. Paul Shaffer is the “Late Show� band leader. Moonves also released a statement, calling Letterman’s decision “poignant. “There is only one David Letterman. His greatness will always

Growing demand for U.S. apartments pushing up rents "Y4HE!SSOCIATED0RESS

These are good times for U.S. landlords. For many tenants, not so much. With demand for apartments surging, rents are projected to rise for a fifth straight year. Even a pickup in apartment construction is unlikely to provide much relief anytime soon. That bodes well for building owners and their investors. Yet the landlord-friendly trends will likely further strain the

A 6 percent rise in apartment rents between 2000 and 2012 has been exacerbated by a 13 percent drop in income among renters nationally over the same period, according to a report from Apartment List, a rental housing website, which used inflation-adjusted figures. “That’s what we call the affordability gap,� says John Kobs, Apartment List’s chief executive. “I

don’t see that improving in the near future.� Demand for rental housing has grown as the U.S. economy has strengthened since the end of the Great Recession nearly five years ago. Steady job growth has made it possible for more people to move out on their own and rent their own apartments. Yet rising home prices are preventing many from buying. A combination of rising rents and sluggish

pay gains will likely continue to weigh on the U.S. economy, which relies primarily on consumer spending. The trend is straining the finances of tenants like Michael Strane. The geologist recently decided to move from Pasadena, California, to the L.A. suburb of Whittier, where asking rents jumped an average of nearly 14 percent last year, according to real estate data provider Zillow.

and into apartment leases. At the same time, construction of apartments was stalled until the last couple of years because many builders couldn’t get loans during the credit crisis. Add to that several recent trends, from rising mortgage rates to stagnant pay, which have combined to discourage many people from buying homes. It’s resulted in fewer places to lease and a bump up in rents.

STATE LEGISLATURE

Test fees ahead for districts, families? Lawmakers fear

backlash on plan

State might provide test for free for only low-income students next year SPRINGFIELD (AP) – As they juggle schoolreform demands with budget cuts, state education officials are considering retaining a traditional college-readiness test for high school juniors but passing the cost along to school districts and possibly the students’ families. The move would be just one cost-cutting possibility after Illinois schools have seen close to $1 billion in cuts since 2009, and as educators warn of more drastic cuts when revenues fall if lawmakers decide not to extend a temporary income tax hike set to expire at the end of this year. State board officials estimate it will cost $14 million for all high school juniors to take the ACT test next year, which they want to keep even though it is scheduled to be phased out with the implementation of other exams. But they are considering providing the test free only to lowincome students and requiring other families to shoulder the $52.50 cost next year. “That’s one option

we’ll have to consider if the funding situation doesn’t go our way,� State Superintendent of Education Christopher Koch told The Associated Press. How to fund testing is one crucial component of the current state budget debate, as lawmakers grapple with whether to let the state’s income tax increase roll back as scheduled from its current 5 percent to 3.75 percent in January, and what to do with the available state funds at hand. Implementing a new set of state-mandated exams is already making the state testing budget balloon. By keeping the ACT and adding the new exams at the elementary and high school levels, the cost of state testing would total $54 million next year, double this year’s $27 million. “The ACT is one thing that parents and students want,� said State Rep. Robert Pritchard of Hinckley, the House Republican spokesman on education funding. He suggested pinching state funding from other programs in order to pay for

SPRINGFIELD (AP) – A fast-tracked plan to overhaul two Chicago citypension programs slowed Thursday in the Illinois House, as nervous lawmakers said they fear backlash for a massive property-tax increase even if they don’t directly approve it. House Speaker Michael Madigan wanted quick House approval for Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s plan after the mayor said he has agreement with major unions covering 57,000 workers and retirees to reduce by half a $20 billion pension debt over 40 years. But half the cost for municipal workers’ and laborers’ pensions would be covered by a 5-year, $750 million property tax hike that the Chicago city council must approve. How that features in necessary legislation has some in the Capitol jittery. “Legislators are concerned about wearing the jacket for that property tax increase,� said Rep. Elaine Nekritz, a Northbrook Democrat and pension expert.

Some say Chicago, a home-rule city not subject to many state laws, often wants to be left alone by the Legislature – so city officials should take full responsibility for the taxes. Others are wondering where the unions in favor of the changes are and why the city isn’t dealing with all its pension accounts at once. The timing isn’t the best, either, coming just a week after Gov. Pat Quinn made property-tax relief a cornerstone of his state budget plan. The Democrat wouldn’t stake a position on the pension measure Thursday but reiterated his desire to reduce the property tax burden. Municipal pension funds are created and governed by state law, so the General Assembly must approve changes. The Chicago plan would increase employee contributions and reduce benefits to retirees. But lawmakers don’t want their fingerprints on any city council vote to raise taxes.

Don’t allow career education cuts to stand T

o save money, some area school districts, including Dixon and Rock Falls, plan to send fewer students to the Whiteside Area Career Center in the fall. Enrollment at the Sterling-based vocational school, which is 646 students for the current school year, is projected to drop to 515 – a plunge of 20 percent. We sympathize with the financial plight faced by school districts that suffer because the state of Illinois’ finances are so bad. The past 2 years, the state has paid less than 90 percent of the aid it owes schools. So, schools must cut

their budgets. The sad part is that among the casualties are the types of students upon whom our region will depend to work in the local economy and provide future services. Authors Patrick Carr and Maria Kefalas describe those students as “stayers� in their book “Hollowing Out the Middle: The Rural Brain Drain and What It Means for America.� Such students stay in their communities after graduating from high school, find jobs, and begin to build their lives. And the foundation for many local careers they will pursue is laid at vocational educa-

for the scores of students who will be shut out of career training. Here’s an idea. Our area is served by several education service regions. We ask the regional school superintendents, Robert Sondgeroth for Whiteside County and Paul McMahon for Lee and Ogle counties, to see what they can do to solve this problem. Otherwise, many students’ futures will be given short shrift. That’s bad for them, and all of us. State leaders have failed those young people, who face diminished future prospects. Local leaders must not quietly acquiesce to this injustice.

COMMENTS ON CONGRESS

What do you think of your government’s execution? Time to make it work better, ex-leader says BY LEE H. HAMILTON Bloomington, Ind.

In 1965, the chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee, Wilbur Mills, brought legislation establishing Medicare and Medicaid to the floor of the U.S. House. That was my first year in Congress, and I remember vividly the moment when Mills came to the Democratic caucus to explain his plans. Many of us had been swept into office in the 1964 Democratic wave that accompanied Lyndon Johnson’s election, and we had an overwhelming majority in Congress. We could pass any bill we wanted. But Mills argued forcefully that we shouldn’t. It was crucial, he said, that we get bipartisan support for the measure: passing the law was one thing, but what really counted was its implementation. With bipartisan support, the odds were much higher that the highly controversial measure could be rolled out effectively. So, despite the grumbling of some members of the caucus, Mills made

significant accommodations to find common ground with Republicans, and eventually 70 of them – half their caucus – joined us to pass the bill. Mills was playing a very smart game. What he understood was that in the end, Americans’ lives would be affected not by what happened in Congress, but by what the federal government Lee H. did with the Hamilton law it was handed. There are times these days when a story like that, about someone in Washington caring about the government’s effectiveness, feels as quaint as a tale about knights and dragons. Plenty of good, competent people serve both in Congress and within the ranks of the executive branch, but after years of abject failure – from the response to Hurricane Katrina to the initial rollout of the Affordable Care Act to the cost overruns, delays, and mismanagement that too often characterize federal programs – it’s hard to argue that the government is filled with people who know how to make it a model of efficiency and effectiveness.

– cannot achieve their policy objectives unless those under them are competent and highperforming. We have to rethink and transform how government does its business – not just on a one-shot basis, but constantly. Light has probably thought harder about these issues than anyone else inside or outside government, and there are a number of recommendations he and others make: We have to cut the number of political appointees. In the federal government alone, they

number roughly 3,000, and often don’t win their positions by merit. We have to reduce the layers of management, and reduce the sheer number of people employed by government. Outsourcing has gotten out of hand. In theory, private-sector contractors save taxpayers money. In reality, Light’s research shows, they can cost us twice as much. Current civil service rules make it almost impossible to hire, promote, and fire based on merit. That has to change. Government today is highly pressured and deals with tough, complicated problems. It needs to be able to recruit and retain first-rate talent; you don’t want a secondrate lawyer negotiating a nuclear arms treaty. Unless we deal with those problems, failure is baked into the system. The American people have to demand that the president and the Congress not just enact legislation, but also implement and manage government programs effectively and efficiently. Note to readers: Lee Hamilton is director of the Center on Congress at Indiana University. He was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for 34 years.

Reputable temperature data extends only 100 years back in time, in a then-widely-scattered geographical arena, while today, temperatures are recorded at an ever-increasing number of locales at numerous times per day. The result? Skewed data, which in the scientific world is viewed with suspicion – or should be. Changes in global climate exist, but can be sufficiently explained by the movements of the earth as influenced by our sun, moon and the other planets of the solar system. The Milankovitch Theory, among others,

accounts for the cyclical nature of our ice ages by tying them to changes in the axis tilt of our earth, the periodic wobble of the same axis, as well as the ever-changing trajectory of our planet’s path around the sun, from circular to elliptical. These movements are correlative to the amount of solar energy affecting the earth’s temperatures over time. So, let’s not flatter ourselves by thinking that we puny humans can, indeed, produce a change in the climate, for the forces at work here are without peer and beyond duplication.

Jerry Holbert, Newspaper Enterprise Association

Some are too busy just trying to carry out policy. Others think government is too big; they’re not interested in improving it, just in cutting it. Some use government to help their friends and allies. And some in Congress will be darned if they’ll let a drive for efficiency close a military base or federal office complex in their district. I’m reminded, though, of a famous quote by Alexander Hamilton: “A government ill-executed, whatever may be the theory, in practice is poor government.� Our government has

become so big, complex, and riddled with competing agendas that its performance – its ability to execute faithfully the law – is terribly compromised. As NYU Professor Paul Light points out, there are too many decision-makers, too many bases to touch, too many layers of management, too many managers in each layer, and too little accountability. These are crucial matters to fix. Not only do Americans want to see better performance from their government, but federal executives – including the president

THE READER’S VOICE

‘Noah’ makes a farce out of biblical story SHERYL NOBLE Rock Falls

To Mr. Aranofsky, producer, atheist and “Noah� filmmaker: What an amazing fairy tale you made out of the biblical character, Noah. Those of us who studied ahead of the movie realized that you were not about to make a factual biblical account. Noah’s sons did all have wives, unlike your story. Who else would repopulate the earth? Noah’s wife, Emzara, was not given a

name in the movie, or I missed it because of Russell Crowe’s [New Zealand] accent and the British accent of Emma Watson, Shem’s girlfriend. Imagine our hilarity when Noah’s wife went around swinging incense and herbs to put the animals, birds, etc., to sleep. Supposedly, the fallen angels became rock formations with spirits inside to help Noah build the ark? I feel they were transformers to bring in the younger movie goers, and reminded me of “The NeverEnding Story.� Imagine our surprise when twin baby girls were born on the ark in 40

days. Huh? Mr. Aranofsky showed Noah’s rage at people repopulating the race; he thought the new earth would be only animals, insects, birds, and fish of the sea. My personal opinion is that Mr. Aranofsky meant to demean Christianity and make a farce out of the Bible story of Noah.

tra, “The sky is falling, the sky is falling�? He has been reincarnated in the form of those who today cry, “Manmade global warming.� If we, for the sake of argument, agree with this theory, many of the experts on their side of the fence proclaim that it’s now too late to reverse the damage, so the case seems hopeless. However, upon closer inspection, a rush to judgment in a process of this magnitude is absurd, and beyond.

Prevent snow mold Grass in the shade and other places where snow and ice linger is susceptible to snow mold, a fuzzy, pink or gray fungus that can damage or kill grass, said Myers, a horticulturist, garden writer and radio and TV host whose books include “The Ohio Lawn Guide.” Snow mold likes moist environments, she said, so it’s a good idea to lightly rake grass in those vulnerable areas to fluff it and allow light and air to penetrate. A leaf rake will work fine, Myers said. The crowns of the grass plants are still alive, so the grass can come back, said Rimelspach, a turf grass disease specialist at Ohio State University. But Myers recommended taking action now, before you see signs of fungus. “Most people notice it when the grass is dead, which is too late,” she said.

Repair damage Snowplows, snowblowers and shovels can do a number on grass, especially along driveways and sidewalks. Those areas may need to be reseeded or sodded, Rimelspach said. He recommended doing that as soon as possible, as long as the soil isn’t frozen or very muddy. You want to give the new grass as much time as possible to mature before summer

encourage the lawn to green up faster, he said. “But only one time,” he cautioned. After that first mowing, be sure to move the mower blade back to its higher position and keep it there.

Wait and see

While most turf grass toughed out the winter, grass that was stressed or immature when the severe cold hit might not have survived, Rimelspach and Myers said. You might find dead grass in areas where the lawn typically struggles, such as shady areas. And if you put in a new lawn late last fall, those seedlings rains that will do the job to feed on.

Night out comes at a cost for relationship Dear Abby: My boyfriend and I have been together for 2 years. We recently spent a romantic night at a hotel, complete with dinner, drinks – the whole shebang – that he organized. I know he was a little stressed about money because he mentioned it. He asked if I could shell out some money, which I did, and when the bill came, he asked me if I could shell out some more. I was a little upset because I wasn’t planning on spending that much. He says he is going to pay me back some of it, and now I just feel bad. I told him I

Dear Mommy: It would not be rude to tell your mother-in-law that while you appreciate her watching your children, if for any reason she cannot do it, you would prefer to make your own arrangements for who will supervise them.

FORT HOOD SHOOTINGS

3AUK6ALLEY-EDIAs!

UKRAINE

Officials: Yanukovych ordered snipers to shoot

AP

An unidentified soldier holds flowers dropped off at Fort Hoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main gate for shooting victims Thursday in Fort Hood, Texas. Spc. Ivan Lopez opened fire on fellow service members Wednesday at the Army base, killing three people and wounding 16 before he shot himself to death.

Argument may have preceded deadly attack at military base Investigators search gunmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home, question his wife FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The soldier who killed three people at Fort Hood may have argued with another service member prior to the attack, and investigators believe his unstable mental health contributed to the rampage, authorities said Thursday. The baseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior officer, Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, said there is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;strong possibilityâ&#x20AC;? that Spc. Ivan Lopez had a â&#x20AC;&#x153;verbal altercationâ&#x20AC;? with another soldier or soldiers immediately before Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shooting, which unfolded on the same Army post that was the scene of an infamous 2009 mass shooting. However, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no indication that he targeted specific soldiers, Milley said. Lopez never saw combat during a deployment to Iraq and had shown no apparent risk of violence

before the shooting, officials said. The 34-year-old truck driver from Puerto Rico seemed to have a clean record that showed no ties to extremist groups. But the Army secretary promised that investigators would keep all avenues open in their inquiry of the soldier whose rampage ended only after he fired a final bullet into his own head. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not making any assumptions by that. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to keep an open mind and an open investigation. We will go where the facts lead us,â&#x20AC;? Army Secretary John McHugh said, explaining that â&#x20AC;&#x153;possible extremist involvement is still being looked at very, very carefully.â&#x20AC;? Scott & White Memorial Hospital in nearby Temple, Texas, was still caring for five of the 16 people who were wound-

ed. Three were in serious condition, and two others were in good condition and could be discharged later Thursday. Hospital officials had no information about patients being treated elsewhere, including at a base hospital. But because the hospital is the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only trauma center, the patients with the most serious injuries were probably taken there. Within hours of Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assault, investigators started looking into whether Lopez had lingering psychological trauma from his time in Iraq. The shooter had sought help for depression, anxiety and other problems, and was taking medication, military officials said. Investigators searched the soldierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home Thursday and questioned his wife, Fort Hood spokesman Chris Haug said.

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ukraineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interim authorities accused the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ousted president of ordering snipers to open fire on protesters and getting help from Russian security agents to battle his own people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but their report Thursday provided no evidence directly linking him to the bloodbath in Kiev. Acting Interior Minister Arsen Avakov also charged that his predecessor employed gangs of killers, kidnappers and thugs to terrorize and undermine the opposition during Ukraineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tumultuous winter of discontent. The preliminary findings revealed by Kievâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new leadership exam-

ined the months of anti-government protests that culminated in the deaths in February over 100 people in Kiev, mostly protesters. That violence forced a truce between the opposition and the government, but the arrangement quickly collapsed and President Viktor Yanukovych fled to Russia. In the weeks since the bloodshed, Russia seized and then formally annexed Crimea, Ukraineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategic Black Sea peninsula, and the U.S. and the European Union slapped sanctions on those responsible, mainly Russian President Vladimir Putinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inner circle. Also Thursday, Ukraine sent 16 senior officers to

Bulgaria to join a NATO military exercise in a very public demonstration of cooperation between the alliance and the crisis-torn former Soviet republic. The computer-simulation drills involved over 700 troops from 13 NATO members and partner nations and were being held just a few hundred miles away from Crimea. The crisis now gripping Ukraine has its roots in three days of bloodshed that peaked on Feb. 20. Speaking at a televised press conference in Kiev, Avakov said police snipers at the time shot at demonstrators near the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s central square, known as the Maidan, as they walked toward the government district.

MISSING MALAYSIA AIRLINES PLANE

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We will not give upâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; search Nearly 4 weeks later, no trace has been found PERTH, Australia (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Leaders of the two countries heading multinational efforts to solve the mystery of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 pledged Thursday that no effort would be spared to give the families of those on board the answers they need. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak flew to Australia for briefings on the search for the missing plane and talks with his Australian counterpart, Tony Abbott, whose country is overseeing the hunt in a huge and remote patch of the Indian Ocean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a very difficult search â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the most difficult in human history. But as far as Australia is concerned, we are throwing everything we have at it,â&#x20AC;? Abbott said in a media appearance with Najib. No trace of the Boeing 777 has been found nearly four weeks after it vanished in the early hours of March 8 on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. Ten planes and nine ships were involved in search operations Thursday, scouring the ocean far off Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

AP

Relatives of Chinese passengers onboard the Malaysia Airlines MH370 stand near messages of well wishes pasted onto the wall in a prayer room Thursday in Beijing. No trace of the Boeing 777 has been found nearly a month after it vanished in the early hours of March 8 on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. southwest corner where investigators believe the plane may have ended up after unknown events occurred on board. Najib, whose government has been harshly criticized by some victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; families for giving sometimes conflicting information about the flight and for the slow pace of the investigation, said everyone involved in the search is thinking of the families of victims who are waiting desperately for news. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know that until we find the plane, many families cannot start to grieve,â&#x20AC;? Najib said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I

cannot imagine what they are going through. But I can promise them that we will not give up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to provide comfort to the families and we will not rest until answers are indeed found. In due time, we will provide a closure for this event,â&#x20AC;? he said. Najib met with Abbott at the Australian base near Perth that is serving as the hub for the multinational search effort. They were briefed by Angus Houston, the head of a joint agency overseeing the search. Although Australia is coordinating the ocean

search, the investigation into the tragedy ultimately remains Malaysiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibility. Najib said Australia had agreed to be an â&#x20AC;&#x153;accredited representative in the investigation,â&#x20AC;? and would work with Malaysia on a comprehensive agreement on the search. On Wednesday, officials warned the investigation may never fully answer why the airliner disappeared. A dearth of information has plagued investigators from the moment the planeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transponders, which make the plane visible to commercial radar, were shut off.

Majority votes to change definition of full-time work WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; House Republicans renewed their electionyear assault on President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care law Thursday, their opposition undimmed just days after Obama celebrated news that more than 7 million Americans had signed up for coverage under the law. The GOP-led chamber voted 248-179 to change the lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definition of full-time work from 30 hours a week to 40 hours a week. The result would

be that fewer workers would get employersponsored health coverage and hundreds of thousands more people would be uninsured, according to the Congressional Budget Office. Republicans, backed by the Chamber of Commerce and other business groups, said the change would restore the traditional definition of full-time work while providing needed relief to businesses that are struggling with increased costs from the health care law. Businesses say they are being forced to cut worker hours, limit full-time jobs and drop health coverage because of the law, which requires businesses with 50

or more full-time workers to provide health coverage or pay penalties. It was the House GOPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 52nd vote to change, repeal or otherwise uproot Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health law, and the measure faced certain death in the Democraticcontrolled Senate. Eighteen Democrats joined with all Republicans in approving the bill, named the Save American Workers Act of 2013. In rancorous debate on the House floor, Democrats accused Republicans of being obsessed with attacking the health law, while Republicans ridiculed Democrats for trying to change what they called a commonly

understood definition of full-time work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all know 30 hours isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t full time but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Obamacare says,â&#x20AC;? said Rep. Tim Griffin, R-Ark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even in France a full-time job is 35 hours a week.â&#x20AC;? Democrats said the lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 30-hour definition for a full-time workweek was meant to make it harder for employers to avoid covering full-time workers by slightly reducing their hours. Changing the definition to 40 hours would make the requirement virtually meaningless because employers could simply skirt it by knocking full-time workers down to 39-and-a-half hours a week, they said.

Buyers finding bargain in Impala

At just $15,981, these nicely furnished 2013 Chevy Impalas are a flat steal! STERLING, IL. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the real deal. A Sterling auto dealer specializing in GM program car sales has just flexed its buying power with the purchase of many 2013 Chevrolet Impalas, and has started their price at just $15,981, thousands below Kelley Blue Book, and a far cry from their original sticker price when new. And what a buy. For 2013, GM stepped up their game in power and efficiency with a 302 horsepower direct injected 3.6-liter V6, paired to a

6-speed automatic transmission. The wonderful pairing gives the Impala a spirited performance that it may have lacked in the past, while still providing a respectable 18 city / 30 highway economy rating. But many owners are reporting even better mileage. Amenities include front bucket seats with center console, dualzone climate control, a six-way power driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat with lumbar, automatic headlamps, fog lamps, tachometer, AM/FM/CD player with an auxiliary jack for your MP3, tiltsteering wheel with audio and cruise controls, remote locks and trunk release and cool 5-spoke alloy wheels. A nifty remote engine start will spoil you in the

winter time, where you can look out your window and start your car while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still in your jammies and have it toastywarm when you get in, or pre-cool the cabin on a sizzling summer day. No worries, because the car wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t budge â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;til it sees your key. Although this feature may seem a bit gimmicky at first, most who have enjoyed this in their last car demand it on their next. Climb behind the wheel and get comfortable in the heavily bolstered, 6-way power bucket seat, which will quickly become your favorite â&#x20AC;&#x153;easy chairâ&#x20AC;?. Wrap your fingers around the soft, leather-wrapped wheel and get ready to enjoy the buttery smooth ride of a magic carpet. And you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go very far to realize youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in one solid car. On the road, the Impala graciously accepts all orders. And you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help being impressed by thepeaceand quiet inside

its spacious cabin, which the boys at GM went to great lengths to keep road and outside noises secret from its occupants. The Impala has long scored high safety marks, and the addition of StabiliTrak (electronic stability control) takes it up several notches. Hailed as the most important safety feature since the seat belt, this guardian angel-like technology helps keep your family safe by applying power and braking to individual wheels on icy or slippery roads â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a feat no human can perform. This cutting-edge safety feature helps keep the vehicle on a straight path and helps prevent spinouts due to driver overcorrection. Over 80% of all highway fatalities are single-car accidents, and the National Highway Administration estimates that over 10,000 lives would be saved annually if all cars were equipped with this technology. The 2013 Impala also touts 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS and traction control, while its front-wheel drive keeps power planted firmly to the pavement.

Buyers also enjoy the remainder of the Impalaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3YR/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper protection, plus the lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share of GMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comprehensive 5YR/100,000-mile power train warranty, whichcoversjustabout everything under the car that moves, nearly every seal and gasket, motor and transmission mounts and even the water pump. This spectacular warranty stays with the car regardless of the number of owners, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no deductible. To add the equivalent protection to the average used car would cost around $2,500. Wow. Today, smaller economy cars are fetching a premium, yet the Impala sacrifices only a few miles per gallon over a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry equipped with a small 4-banger. Before you pay too much for an import job, or spend $10,000$12,000 for a three or four year old, out-of-warranty used car, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well worth your time to check out these exceptionally clean, wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t-let-you-down, getyour-moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-worth 2013

Impalaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be dollars ahead. WHERE TO BUY.

Old friend invited to celebration Ryno brings Phillies for Wrigley party BY JAY COHEN Associated Press

Philip Marruffo/pmarruffo@saukvalley.com

Newman’s Micah Trancoso runs in the 800-meter relay after receiving the baton from Nolan McGinn (left) at the Rosenberry Classic on Tuesday at Westwood. The Comets won the 1A team title in 2013, and now they know it will be a challenge to repeat that accomplishment in 2014.

Outrunning history

CHICAGO – The celebration for Wrigley Field’s 100th anniversary begins with a visit from an old friend. Ryne Sandberg brings his Philadelphia Phillies to Chicago to take on the Cubs today in the first game of the season at the iconic ballpark. It’s Sandberg’s second trip to his old stomping grounds since he became Philadelphia’s manager last August. “Wrigley Field’s a special place to me and my career, so going back there, and to go back in this capacity, I’m very anxious and excited about that,” Sandberg said. Sandberg broke into the majors with Philadelphia in 1981, and got his first major league hit at Wrigley. It was the first of many at the Cubs’ longtime home. CELEBRATION CONTINUED ON B5

Nothing funny about it Maturing Kaminsky helps Wisconsin to Final Four BY GENARO C. ARMAS AP Sports Writer

AP

Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky reacts after making a 3-pointer against Arizona in the regional final victory Saturday. Kaminsky has been the Badgers go-to guy in the tournament.

SPORTS inside

ARLINGTON, Texas – Frank Kaminsky took offense to the question: No he is not funnier this year! “I think I’m a little more mature this year, thank you very much,” the Wisconsin big man said with a straight face this week. A little goofy around his teammates, Kaminsky has been all business on the court in leading the Badgers’ charge to the Final Four. The 7-footer had 28 points and 11 rebounds in the 64-63 victory over Arizona in the regional finals, a breakout performance for one of the most improved players

in the Big Ten. Wisconsin (30-7) started practicing Thursday at the behemoth that is AT&T Stadium – home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys – to prepare for Saturday night’s

national semifinal against Kentucky (28-10). For all the talk about Wisconsin’s trademark discipline and toughness, Kaminsky and his teammates seem to be a pretty loose bunch. As the Badgers walked past the AP Player of the Year award that was to be presented to Creighton’s Doug McDermott, the players couldn’t help but remark about the size of the golden trophy. As the team was driven to the stadium, another Badger remarked on the bus the players were indeed finally on the road to the Final Four.

Story of a life Golf Channel ready to debut Palmer documentary ORLANDO, Fla. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Arnold Palmer watched a sneak preview of a movie that about made him cry. His own life. Golf Channel has spent more than a year producing what might be the most important project in its 20-year history â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a three-part documentary on golfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most endearing figure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arnieâ&#x20AC;? will be shown on three consecutive nights beginning April 13, the night after the final round of the Masters. Emmy Award-winning producer Israel DeHerrera was still putting the finishing touch on the documentary this week, an exhausting process after spending a year traveling with Palmer and collecting so many stories and interviews that even 3 hours were not enough to squeeze them all in. Palmer already has seen excerpts, some of which were shown during the Arnold Palmer Invitational. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been watching a little of it recently, and of course, I have some very emotional thoughts about it,â&#x20AC;? Palmer said Thursday during a conference call. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had to get the Kleenex out when I was watching it. It brought me back of my world of so many years ago. I really canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even think about it. It made me think and get pretty emotional.â&#x20AC;? The people more than the trophies are what stirred the emotions, which was only

Arnold Palmer gestures as he talks to Matt Every, after Every won the Arnold Palmer Invitational on March 23 in Orlando, Fla. Golf Channel will run a three-part documentary on Palmer starting the night after the final round of the Masters. fitting. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what got his project started. A few days after Mike McCarley was appointed president of Golf Channel, he received a handwritten letter from Palmer, with that famous signature at the bottom. He did some research before meeting The King for lunch a few weeks later and was struck by how many lives Palmer has touched. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this wonderful history of him writing letters to PGA Tour players, who may win an event, or fans who ask for something,â&#x20AC;? McCarley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a very genuine â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;treat people the way you would like to be treatedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; aspect to the way heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

lived his entire life. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really where it started.â&#x20AC;? The documentary is split into three sections. The first part, to be shown on Sunday night after the final round of the Masters, is called, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arnie and his Army.â&#x20AC;? The second part is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arnie and his Majors.â&#x20AC;? The third part is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arnie and his Legacy,â&#x20AC;? which shows his influence on pop culture.

Goodyear officials discuss tires at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas on Thursday. NASCAR will not regulate tire pressures at Texas Motor Speedway, and if drivers have tire failures during races, officials believe they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to blame Goodyear. recommended by the manufacturer. With a handful of drivers predicting similar problems this weekend at Texas, NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton said each team controls its own fate.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to be open enough to give the teams opportunity to adjust and have different setups out there and be more aggressive or less aggressive whenever they see fit,â&#x20AC;? Pemberton said Thursday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want the teams to be able to push

the limit, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we expect out of them. If a guy has a tire issue that is self-inflicted and gets out of the car and blames Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co., thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad deal. That basically is what some of them tried to do at California.â&#x20AC;? Goodyear each week presents teams minimum pounds per square inch pressure recommendations based on both testing and data from previous tires. The manufacturer will use for the first time this season the multizone tread tire, which combines two distinct rubber compounds on the same right-side tire. The compound used on the outside 10 inches of the tread is designed for traction, and the compound on the inside two inches is designed for durability.

FORT WORTH, Texas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; NASCAR will not regulate tire pressures at Texas Motor Speedway, and if drivers have tire failures during Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race, officials believe they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to blame Goodyear. Hoping to give more control over setups and strategy to race teams, NASCAR is refusing to get involved in monitoring whether teams choose to follow recommendations set each week by Goodyear. There were multiple tire issues at California 2 weeks ago, and many drivers tried to blame the product Goodyear brought to the track. NASCAR insisted the issues were self-inflicted, and a product of teams going far beyond the air pressure limits

He is not particularly physically imposing, though he is deceptively athletic. Defend Kaminsky with a big, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll maneuver around for a drive to the bucket or step back for a mid-range jumper. Go small on Kaminsky and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll post up. Give him room on the perimeter, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll shoot the 3. Kaminsky also had to deal with getting poked in the eye last year at midseason, an injury that then forced him to wear goggles. This year started with the confidence that he was the man in the middle on a team light on big men. A glimpse of what was to come came

in November, when Kaminsky scored a school-record 43 points in a 103-85 victory over North Dakota. The season comes to an end with Kaminsky on a roll, averaging 18.5 points and 6 rebounds in the tournament, while shooting 54 percent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the No. 1 thing, I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more mature from the standpoint of he understands patience, and he understands that he can get hit and things are going to be OK,â&#x20AC;? associate head coach Greg Gard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And now he likes to be physical in there, on both ends of the floor.â&#x20AC;?

Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Quincy Coomes run the mile during the Rosenberry Classic on Tuesday. While sprints were the strength of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1A state championship team, Newman has good depth and talent in the distance events this spring to help make up for losses to graduation.

Repeat will be tough for Comets HISTORY

CONTINUED FROM B1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not looking to an individual or two to replace all that talent and leadership we lost,â&#x20AC;? said sophomore Brady Rude, Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother and a member of all three medaling relay teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to come down to all of us trying to improve, helping the team whenever and wherever we can.â&#x20AC;? Those losses show up mainly on the depth chart. Andy Accardi, entering his 21st season as the Cometsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; head coach, says that the plethora of sprinters has been whittled down, and knows Newman is going to have to rely heavily on some young, less-experienced athletes. But what the Comets lack in depth and experience in places, they make up for with a deep reserve of distance runners and field event talent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a good core of kids back, and I think things will even out,â&#x20AC;? Accardi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These kids have a lot of faith in each

other, a lot of trust and belief. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really that feeling of trying to live up to last year, having that pressure hanging over their heads; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of an excitement to build on it, using it as an example to strive toward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winning state isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on my mind â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really last year, either â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but these guys know what it takes to get down to state, and we want to keep that goal of getting as many kids down there as possible and have them do well individually. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find out what happens when we get there.â&#x20AC;? The key, according to Accardi, is the standard Newman goal of focusing in the small things and watching them add up. Instead of worrying about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waiting 2 months down the road, he has the kids put on blinders and just focus on the task at hand. For their part, the kids have bought in â&#x20AC;Ś and say track is an easier sport to do that with than others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to be patient, keep working

hard, and just concentrate on every event, every practice, every meet,â&#x20AC;? McGinn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different than other sports, where you maybe have fewer games or events and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier to take in the big picture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our conference is tough, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to see good competition and get pushed every time out there. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only going to help us in the end.â&#x20AC;? And with third-place state finisher ErieProphetstown and fourth-placer Oregon also in the area â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and bringing back loaded teams once again â&#x20AC;&#x201C; some of the attention may wander away from the Comets. Could it be they might actually be able to fly under the radar a bit thanks to their heavy losses to graduation? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of what we lost, no one is really expecting as much out of us, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s less pressure on us,â&#x20AC;? Brady Rude said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to give us the chance to maybe surprise some people â&#x20AC;Ś and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking forward to it.â&#x20AC;?

On some deals, a defender will have a dilemma, not sure how to defeat the contract. He must rely on his partner. Against five diamonds, West leads the spade two. How should declarer play? Suppose he wins with his ace, plays a heart to dummy’s 10, and runs the diamond nine to West’s king. How should West defend? After two passes, East opened a light third-in-hand one spade. South overcalled two diamonds. West made a pre-emptive jump to three spades, showing four-card support and less than gameinvitational values. (With a stronger hand, he would have cue-bid three diamonds.) North doubled to indicate a maximum pass, and South

jumped to five diamonds. This is a difficult deal. It is tempting for declarer to assume that East holds the diamond king. But after the diamond finesse fails, West won-

ders whether his side needs to take one diamond, one spade (when East has only five spades) and one club, or one diamond and two clubs (when East has six spades). He does not know, but East should. At trick four, West should shift to his club queen, and South plays low from the board. Now the spotlight is on East. From the spade-two lead, he knows that West has only four spades. So East should overtake with his club ace and cash the spade king. What did declarer do wrong? It is better to cash his diamond ace at trick two. If the king drops, fine. But when it does not, South turns to hearts, getting home if the defender with the diamond king has at least three hearts. Declarer’s club loser evaporates on dummy’s fourth heart. © 2014 UFS

Blackhawks snap skid Chicago overcomes slow start to beat Wild BY CHRIS HINE Chicago Tribune

For the last 2 days, the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;flip the switchâ&#x20AC;? has come up in almost every interview every Blackhawk player has done. As in, once the playoffs start, the Hawks need to be able to regain the form that won them the Stanley Cup last season. But reaching that level of play isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as easy as, well, flipping a switch. The Hawks flipped that switch a little closer to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;onâ&#x20AC;? position Thursday night â&#x20AC;&#x201C; albeit just a little â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in defeating the Wild 3-2 in a shootout to snap their three-game skid before a crowd of 21,791 at the United Center. The Wild couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score on Hawks goaltender Corey Crawford, while Marian Hossa provided the lone goal of the shootout. But the game wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t without its shaky moments both late and early. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played the way we had to play,â&#x20AC;? coach Joel Quenneville said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Playing it simple, advancing

AP

The Wildâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Charlie Coyle (3) scores past Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford on Thursday at the United Center. Crawford stopped 25 shots â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including every one in a shootout â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-2 victory. the puck with a check-first mentality. â&#x20AC;Ś We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up much all game.â&#x20AC;? The Hawks took a 2-1 lead on goals from Ben Smith in the second period and Bryan Bickell in the third. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was important,â&#x20AC;? Bickell said of the victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a frsutrating team to play against.

â&#x20AC;Ś But we stuck with it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to get a shootout win. We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had many of those. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to break our slump.â&#x20AC;? The Hawks relinquished the lead late in regulation when the Wildâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Erik Haula scored on a shot that appeared to deflect off the stick of Matt Cooke on its way to the net.

MLB ROUNDUP

Cubs finally pick up first win Cards weather another delay; Sox blow late lead By the Associated Press

Jason Hammel pitched two-hit ball into the seventh inning and the Cubs edged the Pirates 3-2 in Pittsburgh for their first win of the season. Hammel (1-0) allowed a run, struck out five and walked one in 6 2/3 innings to help the Cubs avoid their worst start in 17 years. Emilio Bonifacio went 2-for-4 and scored twice to continue his torrid start. The Chicago center fielder hit 11-for-16 (.688) during the opening three-game series. Cardinals 7, Reds 6:

The Cardinals overcame another long delay and Todd Frazierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two homers to beat the Reds in Cincinnati. The first pitch was

The Cardinals then emerged from their two-game hitting slump by knocking Homer Bailey (0-1) out of the game in the fifth inning. Jhonny Peralta homered to get it going. Lance Lynn (1-0) gave up Jay Bruceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two-run homer and Frazierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solo

shot during five innings.

Twins 10, White Sox 9: Chris Colabello had a

career-high six RBIs and doubled twice, Oswaldo Arcia hit a go-ahead triple, and the Minnesota Twins avoided a seasonopening sweep at U.S. Cellular Field by giving manager Ron Gardnehire his 999th career win. Trailing 9-8 heading into the ninth, the Twins scored twice off Chicago closer Matt Lindstrom (0-1), who blew his first save chance in two opportunities. Trevor Plouffe singled with two outs in the ninth to tie the game, before Arciaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s triple off the wall in center gave Minnesota a 10-9 lead. Marcus Semien ripped a go-ahead homer in the eighth for the Sox.

Wrigley not loved by all players CELEBRATION

CONTINUED FROM B1

Sandberg was traded to Chicago that January, and went on to play 15 seasons for the Cubs. He finished his career with a .285 batting average, 282 homers and 1,061 RBIs. The second baseman had his No. 23 retired by the team in 2005, the same year he was enshrined in Cooperstown. Nicknamed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ryno,â&#x20AC;? Sandberg remains popular among Cubs fans. After all, he was at his best in their favorite ballpark, batting .300 with 164 homers and 607 RBIs at Wrigley during his time with Chicago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the 100th year, anniversary of the stadium there, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be special,â&#x20AC;? Sandberg said, looking forward to the second of three opening days for Philadelphia this season. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a very special occasion for rookie Cubs manager Rick Renteria, who was hired in November and finally gets a chance to take a look at his office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all looking forward to making Wrigley Field our haven,â&#x20AC;? he said. It was a house of horrors last year, when Chicago had a National League-worst 31-50

home record. The home woes, plus a run of four straight losing seasons, also took a toll on attendance. The season total of 2,642,682 was the smallest for the Cubs since they drew 2,623,194 in 1998. All those numbers played a role in the firing of Dale Sveum, who went 127-197 in two seasons with Chicago. The Cubs are hoping Renteria can get young hitters Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro back on track, while laying a foundation for a successful transition to the majors for the top prospects in a loaded farm system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving in the right direction with our mentality and attitude,â&#x20AC;? Renteria said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a long season.â&#x20AC;? Renteria got a little taste of what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to manage the Cubs during their first series in Pittsburgh. They dropped each of the first two games in extra innings before holding on for a 3-2 victory Thursday afternoon, setting the stage for a home schedule that the Cubs are calling â&#x20AC;&#x153;the party of the century.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great old stadium and a real piece of history,â&#x20AC;? Cubs second baseman Darwin Barney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope the Cubs can play there another 100 years.â&#x20AC;? Not everyone shares Barneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion of

Wrigley, which is quite a different experience for the visiting team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hate it,â&#x20AC;? said Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon, who then rattled off a long list of complaints. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The clubhouse is small. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bandbox. The wind seems like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always blowing out. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold. The dugoutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s small. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no bullpen. You want me to keep going?â&#x20AC;? Philadelphia also dropped two of three in its opening road series. It won 14-10 on opening day in Texas, and then managed just five runs in the last two games. Adrian Beltre had a game-ending RBI single for Texas on Tuesday, and Papelbon blew his first save opportunity in a 4-3 loss Wednesday. Roberto Hernandez makes his first NL start for Philadelphia in the opener against the Cubs. The right-hander, who began his career in Cleveland and pitched for Tampa Bay last season, signed a 1-year, $4.5 million contract in the offseason. Hernandez will be opposed by Travis Wood, who made the All-Star team for the first time last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always good to play at home,â&#x20AC;? Cubs catcher Welington Castillo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to get to Wrigley.â&#x20AC;?

Astrograph Damaging rumors will run rampant. Friday, April 4, 2014 A lot of support and helpful advice will come your way this year. You will reach your goals if you continue to show honesty and meticulous work habits. Share your ideas and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be dissuaded by those who disagree with your plans. Focus on forging ahead. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Damaging rumors will run rampant if you are overly attracted to one of your co-workers. Protect your reputation and your job by keeping your personal life a secret. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A romantic opportunity will come your way when you least expect it. If your working conditions need improvement, get together with your colleagues and take some recommendations to your employer. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- We all go through periods when we feel restless and need to experience something different. Making a change to the way you look or to your routine will lift your spirits. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Look in on relatives who have health issues. Keep your work

plans a secret until you are ready to make your play. Now is a good time to implement personal changes that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been contemplating. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your attention to detail will make a good impression. Delegate jobs that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complete to someone you have faith in. Your self-confidence will attract positive attention. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -A social function may lead to confusion, deceit or unpredictable motives. Someone may be trying to take advantage of your knowledge or connections. Avoid making promises. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Make sure you have all the pertinent details before making accusations or demands. You have a lot to lose if you are uninformed. Keep your ideas under wraps for now. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Take a break and slow down. Your stress level is high, and you could be risking your health if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deal with minor issues now.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Your goals may be admirable and your intentions good, but you could lose a few friends along the way. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn into a know-it-all, or you will alienate those around you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Be mindful when choosing your friends and colleagues. You will be offered help, but you must impart guidance if you want things done to your specifications.
