Burke likely to run in 2015 If re-elected as mayor, it would be his fifth term BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5529

DIXON – Mayor Jim Burke says he expects to seek re-election next year. Burke, a real estate agent, was elected in 1999 and won a

During an interview Tuesday with Sauk Valley Media’s editorial board, Burke said he planned to run again. “The reason I want to run again is for the same reason I ran to start

with, which is the mayor can make things happen,” Burke said. “And we have a lot of things to get done going forward with this community.” Burke said he wanted to finish developing the downtown, expand the use and reach of the airport, and put together a task force to look into growing the city. In October, Burke said he wasn’t ready to make a decision about seeking re-election.

“I’m pretty sure I’m going to run,” Burke said Tuesday. “I kind of wanted to see what the reaction of the community was with all this. This thing has been, you talk about a stressful deal for the city – people at large – and the City Council and the mayor’s job. It’s really been a deal and a half for 2 years.” BURKE CONTINUED ON A7

Sheriff’s memo calls for end of tow fee Chairman: decision did not come from board BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5529

OREGON – In an internal memo dated April 1, Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn said his department would no longer collect the administrative tow fee. “We will continue to tow vehicles subsequent to arrest; however we will no longer distribute the vehicle seizure paperwork, nor require owners to remit the $350 impound fee,” Harn wrote in the memo. The fee has generated much controversy in recent months. TOW CONTINUED ON A5

Builders Club members run through an exercise on working together during their meeting time after school Tuesday at Challand Middle School in Sterling. The club is the middle-school arm of the Kiwanis Club.

STERLING – Zach Woessner might wish he could weave a more altruistic tale for why he attended his first Kiwanis Key Club meeting, but the results tell the real story. “A friend in PE class said, ‘You’re coming with me, and you’re gonna like it,” Woessner said. The Sterling High School senior was a sophomore at the time, and he quickly discovered that he did like it. The Key Club is one of three student service programs sponsored by Kiwanis International. Key Club is for high school students, Builders Club for middle-schoolers and Kiwanis Kids for students in elementary school. Woessner and Key Club member Meghan Clodfelter were at Challand Middle School Tuesday for a Builders

They serve as mentors for the younger kids, taking their Kiwanis pledge of building home, school and community to another level. Clodfelter, a Sterling High junior, said she joined Key Club last year because,

although she was involved in several extracurricular programs, she wanted to do something based inside the school. A pay-it-forward mentality also factored into her decision to join. “I want to get them inspired

to contribute in their communities,” Clodfelter said. “A lot of different people did that for me, and that’s my goal here.” The charter, paid for by Kiwanis, is for 40 Builders Club members, and anywhere from 20 to 40 attend the meetings, Sterling Kiwanis President Roy Dern said. “Come to Second Street and Second Avenue this week and empty your piggybanks for me,” Dern told the club, soliciting some business for Kiwanis Peanut Days, the organization’s biggest fundraiser of the year, on Friday and Saturday. The Builders Club members recited their pledge, and club president Mia Knapp led the group through some agenda items. Kiwanian Stacey Harrington went over some plans for future projects and activities. FOSTERING CONTINUED ON A3

McMahon is accused of shooting Wyatt Ackerson, 19, of Byron, during a confrontation at a party in the early morning of March 22 at a home on North Hoisington Road, northwest of Byron. Ackerson remained in the hospital Tuesday. Assistant State’s Attorney Joshua Versluys said Tuesday that a second person, Rachel Deiter, 18, of Machesney Park, also had been charged with concealing or aiding a fugitive. Dieter has been in Ogle County Jail since March 24 in lieu of $75,000 bond, Versluys said. She was arraigned March 28, and a public defender was appointed to represent her. Until Tuesday, neither the sheriff’s department nor the state’s attorney’s office had released information about Dieter’s arrest and jailing.

Rock said last week that he knew of no arrests in the case other than McMahon. Rachel Rock also Dieter said Tuesday that a juvenile might have been involved in the incident, but he would not give more details. McMahon, a parolee, has been in the Winnebago County Jail since he was taken into custody a few hours after the shooting. He also has been charged with a shooting in Winnebago County. According to records from the state Department of Corrections, McMahon was paroled from state prison in July 2013. He was sentenced to 3 years in 2010 after being convicted on several charges, including armed robbery (no firearm) and possession of a firearm by a gang member. All of the offenses occurred in Winnebago County.

ROCK FALLS

City one of two Illinois cities in water program Department staff members give presentations at local schools BY PAM EGGEMEIER PEGGEMEIER SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

ROCK FALLS – The city of Rock Falls is one of only two Illinois municipalities to receive designation through the Groundwater Guardian program, run by the Groundwater Foundation, a nonprofit organization that works to educate communities to be stewards of the resource.

To enter the program, communities form a team of representatives from several arenas, including education, business, agriculture and government. The team works on groundwater-related activities that promote public awareness, education, conservation, pollution prevention, and sustainability. Rock Falls has been involved in the program

since 1997, and water department staff members give presentations at local schools, city water superintendent Ted Padilla said. “We go to city and rural schools and teach kids about the aquifer, how we get our drinking water, and how important water safety is,� Padilla said. “The older kids also are taught how to read their utility bills.� Presentations were done at East Coloma last week and are scheduled at Montmorency on April 15 and Merrill on April 22.

Padilla says the presentations are a lot of fun. “We take flow model kits and tell them how the aquifer was formed,� Padilla said. “A lot of people don’t know that the Mississippi actually flowed through here until glaciers changed the flow. The aquifer was created through an old Mississippi riverbed.� As part of the program, a Rock Falls High School senior receives a $1,000 scholarship each year. This year’s winner will be recognized at

School nurse Marcia Ashlock was filling in for faculty adviser Mark Morris on this day. “A cypress tree has been donated to the Builders Club for Earth Day,� Ashlock said. “We’ll probably have some green tie-dye shirts for that day, and we need to decide where we’re going to plant the tree.� Several other projects were on their radar: a cleanup day in downtown Sterling; a day of volunteering at Granny Rose animal shelter; this week’s Kiwanis Peanut Days fundraiser; the delivery of crayons to special needs kids at Washington and Lincoln schools. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Pennies for Patients project is one the club is particularly proud of. “We put a bucket out and got people to donate over $1,000 dollars this year for people with cancer,� Knapp said. Other projects already in the books for this year include Pumpkin Dash, Pinwheel for Peace, Red Ribbon Week and Stock the Food Pantry. Many social activities combine fun with fundraising. Money collected at dances, a percentage of ticket money from a White Sox baseball outing, and ticket proceeds and concessions from

dances were her favorite club activity. “We just had a Valentine’s Day dance at the school and we’re planning

another dance,� Dickerson said. Sixth-grader Nathaniel Beyer was pumped up for the next trip to the animal shelter. “I like volunteering at the animal shelter; it’s probably my favorite thing to do here,� Beyer said. Seventh-grader Anthony Sodaro said he just enjoys helping people, no matter what they do. “One of my friends was in the club, and he was always talking about it,� Sodaro said. “He got me interested, and I decided I wanted to do it, too.� Woessner, who is headed for Brown University in the fall, remembers how difficult middle school can be. His objective as a mentor is to help the young kids feel comfortable in their own skin. “I want them to know that they don’t have to fit into stereotypes,� Woessner said. “I want them to see that it’s OK to be different.�

Rock Falls’ involvement with the program began when the state Environmental Protection Agency urged municipalities be more proactive in educating people about the water they drink.

omy improve,� Homme wrote in the email. Homme said Minnesota-based BioPro likes the Rock Falls community, but the company needed an area with more demand for electric power. The company had struggled to secure a power agreement for the clean energy that is generated from corn stover, a maize byproduct, according to local economic development officials. In 2011, BioPro said it planned to hire 30 fulltime employees, about a dozen part-timers, and 80 seasonal employees. BioPro had options to buy private property or lease land owned by the city. At the time, the cost of the construction project was estimated at $100 million.

program director Jennifer Wemhoff said in a news release. “The voluntary efforts of communities like Rock Falls to educate and protect this precious resource will make a difference, both now and for the future.� The Groundwater Guardian program began in 1994 with eight pilot communities.

ROCK FALLS HIGH SCHOOL

Official vows to pay fines Residents vote for forensic audit BY DAVID GIULIANI DGIULIANI SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

ROCK FALLS – Coloma Township Supervisor Debra Burke on Tuesday promised to pay $3,200 in fines that the township owes because it failed to turn in financial reports to the state for 4 years. She has until April 15 to pay. A few months ago, the state levied more than $13,000 in fines for the lack of reports, which are posted on the state comptroller’s site. Over the winter, Burke got the reports done. Coloma then requested a reduction in fines. Last month, the state cut them to $3,200. On Tuesday night, residents discussed Coloma’s financial problems at the township’s annual

meeting, in which constituents can vote on issues. About 30 attended, Debra many more Burke than previous years, likely because of recent controversies. Only six showed up in 2013. In a voice vote, the residents decided to have the township launch a forensic audit within 3 months, examining 5 years of finances. Such an audit is more indepth than the conventional one. Several asked why accounting firm Wipfli started the township’s conventional audit a year ago and has yet to finish it. “At this point, we don’t know when the audit will be completed,� said Trustee Mary Richardson, who presided over the meeting. “They are having issues with trial

Residents said one should be done every 4 years, at least. “I would like to see an audit done every year,� said Trustee Gene Jacoby, who joined the township board more than 35 years ago. Jacoby was asked why

the trustees did nothing for years to address the failure to conduct audits and submit required reports. “We were told everything was fine, that there was nothing to worry about, and that everything was on schedule,� he said. Walter “Butch� Neal, a trustee appointed late last year, said he was as upset as others in the audience. “When someone tells me that everthing is OK, that makes me want [an audit] more,� Neal said. Burke seemed to blame Wipfli for the audit taking so long. “They had every bill, every check, every check statement, every check duplicate 6 months ago. Then they came back to say we need you to compile information in a different way. Now, they are asking us again to complete it in a different way,� she said.

Police investigating apparent burglary during spring break BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com    EXT

ROCK FALLS – Rock Falls High School Principal Mike Berentes said Tuesday that it appeared some items had been taken from the school during a breakin over spring break. Classes at Rock Falls schools resumed Monday. Staff members have been taking an inventory of items, Berentes said, and some things appear to be missing. He declined to say specifically what those items are. “We’re still taking

IN BRIEF

Gouker seeks interpretation of ordinance from Rock TOW

CONTINUED FROM A1

Ogle County Board Chairman Kim Gouker said the decision did not come from the board. “It’s a decision of the sheriff,� he said. Additionally, Gouker said it was his interpretation of the administrative tow fund ordinance that the department and its deputies didn’t have the discretion to waive the tow fee. Harn didn’t return a request for comment. The key portion of the ordinance, Gouker said, says that the fee “shall be imposed on the registered owner or lessee�

of any vehicle impounded. Gouker spoke with Harn about the issue Tuesday, he said, and asked him to review the ordinance and his decision. Gouker said he also sought Ogle County State’s Attorney Mike Rock Tuesday for a legal interpretation of the ordinance and who can call for stopping the fee. As of this afternoon, Gouker said he hadn’t heard back from Rock. The ordinance, which the County Board passed in October 2011, allows the county to collect a $350 administrative fee to tow vehicles, such as those resulting from a DUI arrest.

Between October 2011 and November 2013, $210,400 was deposited into the tow fund, which the ordinance allowed to be spent at the sheriff’s discretion. In December, Sauk Valley Media reported that Harn had used money from the tow fund to pay for repairs to department vehicles, a tent at the Ogle County Fair, a $4,000 management fee for the department’s Facebook page, and flowers for Secretary’s Day, among other expenses. About a third of the $210,400 in the tow fund during its first 2 years came from sources of revenue other than tow fees, including donations

inventory,� he said. “We think we have it all narrowed down, but we’re still looking into it.� Police were called to the high school just before 6 a.m. March 30 in response to an alarm at the high school. When they arrived, they discovered a door window had been broken on the north side of the building. Four windows were damaged – two on the north side and two interior room doors. Fingerprints and samples from blood found on glass fragments were sent to the state police crime lab last week, Rock Falls Police Chief Mike Kuelper said, and detectives are reviewing security camera footage.

Sign-ups needed for ash borer talk

and reimbursements from Exelon Corp. and reimbursements for prisoner transport (35 cents a mile), among others. In February, the Count Board restricted what the tow fund could be used for. This month, the board is expected to discuss restricting the sources of revenue for the tow fund. In the March 18 Republican primary election, Harn lost a close threeway race to Brian VanVickle, a Rochelle police officer. The Democratic Party has no candidate yet, and the general election is Nov. 4. The new term starts Dec. 1.

THE CARTOONIST’S VOICE

Joe Heller, Heller Syndication

Who wants to be a millionaire in greedy Illinois? What we think Politicians have their greedy eyes focused on the riches possessed by Illinois’ millionaires. Two new statewide proposals aim to separate the wealthy from more of their money. Millionaires, beware.

W

ho wants to be a millionaire in Illinois? Plenty of people, judging from how the number of Lottery players swells whenever biggame jackpots get outrageously high. But millionaires are in the crosshairs of certain politicians, based on proposals put forth recently in the Illinois General Assembly. The millionaires’ primary antagonist is House Speaker Michael Madigan. Two days after the primary election last month, Madigan, a Chicago Democrat, proposed a new tax on the income of millionaires. For people who earn more than $1 million a year, Madigan would tax the overage by an extra 3 percent. If the millionaire tax were in effect now, millionaires would pay 5 percent on their first $1 million of income, and 8 percent on everything above $1 million. Madigan clothed the constitutional amendment proposal as a funding measure for education. He suggested that the tax would raise an extra $1 billion a year, the equivalent of $550 for each public school student in the state. Some Republicans pushed back, saying that it was not fair to penalize Illinois’ most successful residents. (That number, Madigan estimated, is in the neighborhood of 13,675 millionaires, based on 2011 income tax figures.)

But Madigan’s 3 percent surcharge on millionaires has already made it to the House floor, where, knowing the speaker’s strong influence, its eventual approval and placement on the November ballot is practically a foregone conclusion. Millionaires would have to pay more to the state in another area, if Gov. Pat Quinn has his way. Quinn wants to abolish Illinois’ 5 percent deduction on property taxes paid on homes, which appears on state income tax forms. In its place would be a flat $500 refund for real estate taxes paid. For many Illinoisans, the proposal represents a better deal than they have now. Not so for millionaires. People with big incomes usually live in big, expensive houses. If they pay more than $10,000 in real estate taxes, millionaires would get less of a tax break from the flat $500 refund than if they had the 5 percent deduction. Illinois’ millionaires thus can look forward to being dinged by governing politicians for having high incomes and for owning expensive homes. We doubt that situation will dissuade Illinoisans from buying Lottery tickets and dreaming of instant wealth. But they should realize that, in Illinois, being a millionaire may soon become a lot more expensive than it used to be.

STATEHOUSE INSIDER

Quinn zeroes in on Rauner Governor says his foe can’t add Gov. Pat Quinn didn’t exactly hold back on opponent Bruce Rauner when he met with The State Journal-Register editorial board last week. “We did not demonize our public employees,� Quinn said at one point, a reference to some of Rauner’s harsher comments about union leaders running the joint. He hit his stride, though, defending his call to continue the temporary income tax hike to avoid “savage� cuts to education. Saying you can’t let the tax increase expire and still spare education, Quinn said even second-graders he spoke to grasped the concept. “I don’t think we want a governor who can’t add,� Quinn said. Ouch.

.OTERMLIMITS FOR-ADIGAN A Senate subcommittee last week killed off several proposed amendments to the state Constitution sponsored by Republicans. One of the amendments would have put term limits on the four people who lead their parties in the House and Senate. It said no one could serve longer than 10 years in one position and 14 in total.

That last part was a nod to the possibility of changing political fortunes in the Capitol. A person could serve, say, 10 years as a minority leader, and if the party suddenly won a majority, the person could serve as House speaker or Senate president for a while longer. The amendment was sponsored by state Sen. Matt Murphy, R-Palatine. Sen. Don Harmon, D-Oak Park, asked Murphy whether he knew how many leaders, past or present, the amendment would have applied to. Of course, as an attorney, Harmon already knew the answer to his question when he asked it. That answer was only two: House Speaker Michael Madigan, D-Chicago, and former Senate President Phil Rock, D-Oak Park. Murphy said he started toying with the termlimit idea after his first year in the Senate. That would have been 2007, a year that good ol’ Rod Blagojevich went par-

ticularly amok. He kept the Legislature in session all summer before Madigan essentially told the House to go home and stay there until he called them back. “It was my first experience with the concept of the consolidation of power in Springfield in just a few hands,� Murphy said. Harmon had a different take. “Without strong legislative leaders, can you imagine how awful that summer would have been that you experienced with a rogue governor and no one in the Legislature to stand up and say no?� Harmon asked.

2AKEDOVER THECOAL The House last week debated a bill about ending the mandate to teach about Illinois coal in the state’s schools. Opponents viewed the bill as an attack on Illinois coal. Person after person stood up to defend Illinois coal and bemoan the decline of the state’s coal industry. The undercurrent was the bill was some kind of plot by environmentalists to further undermine Illinois coal. The sponsor, state Rep. Deborah Conroy, D-Elmhurst, denied all of that. She said there should be comprehensive education about energy in gen-

eral. Still, the debate continued. At one point, Rep. Dwight Kay, R-Glen Carbon, asked Conroy whether she had ever visited a coal mine. Conroy said, Yes, she has visited a mine. Kay pressed on. Which of the state’s coal mines had she visited? The one at the museum, Conroy said. Um, that would be the “mine� at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. Anyone who’s been through it knows it’s a lot of fun. As to whether it qualifies as a real mine, not so much. By the way, the bill came up six votes shy of passing. Conroy positioned it to try again in the future.

ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE

School funding plan advances in Senate Bulk of money would be distributed factoring districts’ poverty levels SPRINGFIELD (AP) – A proposal to dramatically overhaul the state’s school funding formula and allocate more money to poorer districts moved ahead in the Illinois Senate on Tuesday. The regionally divisive issue, however, likely faces a tough road in gaining support from both parties in both chambers. The bill, sponsored by Democratic state Sen. Andy Manar, would be a significant shift from the current method that factors in a district’s poverty for some types of state aid but not others. With numbers still being tallied by the State Board of Education that would indicate the expected gains and losses to specific districts, state Sen. Matt Murphy, a Palatine Republican, questioned if lawmakers were taking a leap “where we don’t know where we’re going to land.� “How do I know whether this is the right thing to do for the people that sent me here?� Murphy asked.

Illinois Sen. Andy Manar (left), D-Bunker Hill, looks on as Illinois Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon testifies during a Senate executive committee hearing Tuesday at the state Capitol in Springfield. State lawmakers are proposing to dramatically overhaul the state’s school funding formula for the first time since 1997. After a nearly 3-hour subcommittee debate, the issue was sent by a party line vote to another Senate committee, where it must be approved before it can advance to the chamber floor. Under the plan, 92 percent of total state education funding would be distributed by factoring in districts’ poverty levels,

accounting for low-income students using a weighted formula. The legislation also uses the number of students receiving free and reduced-priced lunches to determine who qualifies for additional low income dollars, which Manar says is in practice with most other states. Only specialized programs for special education and early

Former Comptroller Rita Crundwell was arrested at City Hall on April 17, 2012, for stealing nearly $54 million over two decades. In the 2 years following Crundwell’s arrest, Burke and the rest of the City Council have come under scrutiny from citizens regarding what they may or may not have known about Crundwell’s theft. “There’s really a lot of pride in this community,� Burke said. “And I think that goes to the heart of why most people were so upset. I mean, they’re really proud of the community.� He said a citizen who had been critical of him during City Council meetings recently encouraged him to run again.

Illinois considering east-west route SPRINGFIELD (AP) – State lawmakers are backing the creation of an east-west passenger rail corridor across Illinois. The Illinois House unanimously approved a non-binding resolution Monday endorsing a possible Amtrak route from the Quad Cities in

the west to Danville in the east. The Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers reports that the route would include stops in Galesburg, Peoria, Bloomington-Normal and Champaign-Urbana and connect already existing stretches of track. No cost estimate was

discussed, but legislators are being asked to approve $42 million for passenger rail service between Chicago and St. Louis and Chicago and Carbondale. A 2008 law passed by Congress shifted most of the costs for shorter routes from the federal government to states.

childhood education would be exempted from the formula. And, for the first time in decades, funding for Chicago Public Schools would be treated under the same formula as the rest of the state. “Let’s change the law based on the needs of our state today,� Manar, of Bunker Hill, told committee members. David Lett, superintendent of schools in the central Illinois town of Pana, told the board that his district has one-third of the available funds to spend per student compared to Seneca, about 150 miles to the north. “Why the disparity?� he asked. Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn, who made education funding a cornerstone of his March budget address, said Tuesday he is “interested� in the measure, but didn’t take a position on it. As it stands now, Illinois schools get state money in a variety of ways. One component, general state aid – the money used to offset the basic cost of educating students – is based on a formula that factors in poverty levels. This year, less than 45 percent of the $6.7 billion the state spent on preschool through 12th-grade education was on general state aid. But districts also get grants

to use on programs such as special education, transportation and vocational training, which don’t factor in poverty. Districts must submit expense claims for those programs and are reimbursed based on the number of students they serve. The exception is Chicago, which receives a percentage of all state education dollars to spend at its own discretion. As a result, critics charge, it has received hundreds of millions more than if it were held to the same standard as other districts. Since the last time the state’s school funding formula was changed in 1997, increases to spending on specialized programs have outpaced increases to general state aid – resulting in the poorest districts often hurting the most. Meanwhile, an increasing deficit and a growing unfunded pension liability diverted money from schools and social services, exacerbating the problems. Manar says he intentionally brought the bill forward early in the spring session for greater scrutiny. “We’re open to changes in the bill that will lead toward greater equity, which is our goal,� he said.

Woman with transgender lover seeks support Dear Abby: I’m a divorced woman with grown children. I have always supported gay rights and thought of myself as straight. But a few months ago, I met a woman, “Stephanie.� We hit it off immediately, and I was shocked to learn she’s a transgender woman who was born male. We have spent a lot of time together and are falling in love. Stephanie will be having surgery soon

to complete the transgender process. I have been surprised

and disappointed by the lack of support from my family and friends, whom I always thought were open-minded. Some have voiced support, but have shown no interest in meeting her and seem uncomfortable hearing about her. I’m excited about this relationship, and would have thought my family and friends would be happy for me, as I have been alone for a long time. But now I find

myself refraining from mentioning Stephanie in conversation. How can I discuss her with others? We are taking things slowly and not jumping into anything, yet we can definitely see ourselves spending the rest of our lives together. We have already faced disapproving strangers and handled it well. – Loves My Friend in Ohio Dear Loves: It appears

Stephanie isn’t the only one in your relationship who is in transition. Both of you are, and because it is new to those around you, they may not understand it – which is why they are uncomfortable. The fact that Stephanie is transgender should not be mentioned right off the bat. It is not the most important thing about her, and it should not be her defining characteristic. Discuss

the matter with your friend, and ask how she would like to be introduced and referred to. It’s only logical that this will vary according to how close these people are to you.

Nut milk is hot right now, and easy to make

MCT News Service

Choosing milk for your morning cereal or coffee used to be pretty simple: skim, low-fat or whole. These days, though, market shelves and refrigerators are crowded with an array of alternatives: soy, almond (shown), rice, hemp, and more.

uts. And water. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really all there is to nut milk. Maybe youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noticed all the dairyfree milk brands vying for attention at your local market. Nut milks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and other plant-based milks such as soy, rice and even coconut â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are hot right now. Whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lactose-intolerant or have perhaps â&#x20AC;&#x153;consciously uncoupledâ&#x20AC;? yourself from dairy, plantbased alternatives are a growing market for both health- and fad-related reasons. But have you bothered to check the back of the box? In addition to nuts and water, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll most likely find a litany of additional ingredients. Some are added to lend flavoring and/or sweetness, others to fortify the milk with vitamins and minerals. Some, like seaweed-derived carrageenan, are added to thicken and emulsify the milk, while still others work as preservatives to extend shelf life. It was enough to make me wonder how hard it would be to just make it myself. Believe it or not, homemade nut milk is incredibly simple: Soak nuts, blend and strain. Voila. There are plenty of recipes for nut milks available on the Internet, but the method is basic: Take raw nuts and immerse them in a bowl of water. Soak the nuts until theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re noticeably plump (kind of like soaking raisins), at least several hours and up to a day or so. Drain the water and give the nuts a good rinse, then place them in a blender with fresh water and blend away to your heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s content. When the nuts are pureed, strain the liquid. Because of the fine grit from the nut pulp, the liquid will need to be carefully strained. Several layers of cheesecloth over a mesh strainer work well, as does a tea towel.

Stalk some asparagus this spring BY CARRIE GROBE KSB Hospital

A sure sign of spring is asparagus poking out of the ground. This vegetable is crazy good for you and has amazing flavor. One cup of asparagus has only 40 calories, but is packed full of vitamins A, C,and E, as well as folate, thiamine, copper, and selenium. Asparagus contains more glutathione than any other fruit or vegetable. Glutathione is an antioxidant that plays a vital role in the prevention of certain cancers, nutrient metabolism, and regulating DNA and protein synthesis. Asparagus should be used soon after harvesting for best flavor. Steaming, grilling and broiling asparagus helps preserve the water-soluble vitamins. Serve raw or cooked, in a salad, stir fry, casserole, or as a side

Nut milk works as substitute in recipes NUT MILK

CONTINUED FROM A9

But the best thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found is something called a nut milk bag (yes, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the name, and it can easily be found on the Internet). Fill the bag with puree and gently squeeze out the liquid; the bag works wonders at removing the grit to give the milk a nice, smooth texture. After the liquid is strained, adjust the consistency with additional liquid to suit your taste. Most methods Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen call for a ratio of 1 cup of nuts to 3 or 4 cups water. I personally prefer 1 pound of nuts (a little more than 3 cups) to around 6 cups of water for a nut milk similar in consistency to whole dairy milk. To create a â&#x20AC;&#x153;cream,â&#x20AC;? allow a little of the finer grit in with the milk and reduce the water for a thicker consistency. Because homemade nut milk will naturally separate over time, store it in a container with a tight-fitting lid, so you can give it a good shake before using. Once itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made, the milk will keep, refrigerated, for 3 to 5 days. As for the leftover pulp, save it. You can use it in so many things. Flavor the pulp and use it as a spread, add it to a shake or fold it in with pancake batters or dips. Or simply spread the pulp out and slowly dry it in a low oven to make nut meal. I recently used some dried-out almond meal in cookies. For a batch of sables, I combined coconut oil, almond meal, sugar, flour and cacao nibs, rolling the crumbly dough into a log. After slicing and baking, I took a bite of a still-warm cookie. Rich, with a sableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature â&#x20AC;&#x153;sandyâ&#x20AC;? texture, one might never guess the cookie was dairy-free. And vegan. Perfect for my healthand fad-conscious friends.

Variety of nut milk flavors Almond is by far the most popular nut milk around, but why stop there? I loved experimenting with hazelnut and pistachio milks, neither of which youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re likely to find at the store.

Macadamia nuts make an extra smooth and creamy milk, perfect when substituting for dairy in a rich mushroom bisque.

MCT News Service photos

Hazelnut rice pudding with orange and dark chocolate takes less than an hour to prepare. And macadamia nuts make an extra smooth and creamy milk, perfect when substituting for dairy in a rich mushroom bisque. Flavorings and sweeteners are easy to add to homemade milks, though Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d recommend against them if you plan to use the milk in savory recipes. Toss a little vanilla or spice in the blender with the nuts when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to puree, or sweeten with dates, honey, agave or maple syrup.

Stormy is a very good boy. He is only 14 months old and still a puppy at heart. This Shepherd/Husky mix, with possible Hound, also has a thicker black and gray coat that is nicely marked. He weighs 64 pounds and is neutered. All his shots are current. Stormy is housebroke and knows some basic commands. He has not lived with children or other pets, but is quite sociable and could adapt. Stormy is still young and playful. This boy would do great with appropriate exercise and playtime to keep him occupied. Bored puppies get into mischief. Stormy would love to meet you!

Deets ready to take the reins Ex-Marco steps in for mentor as track coach BY TY REYNOLDS treynolds@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 554

Buhler’s day on

Even back when he was an athlete, Ryan Deets had what it took to be a track coach. At least, that’s what longtime Polo head coach Tom Welty thought when he was working with Deets. After 13 seasons at the helm for the Marcos, Welty retired last spring. He was more than comfortable handing the reins to Deets, a 2003 Polo grad. “He had it all in there, everything it took to do this job … and do it well,” Welty said. “Even as an athlete, he was always conscientious about becoming better, and helping others to do the same. In passing the torch, I couldn’t think of anybody better to hand it off to.” A three-sport athlete for the Marcos, Deets took his athletic ability to Augustana, where he turned his love for the hurdles and high jump into a collegiate career as a decathlete. Being learned in the two most technical events of the decathlon, Deets said the transition to the 10-event discipline was a natural one. DEETS CONTINUED ON B3

Newman junior solid on mound in win over Dukes BY DAN WOESSNER dwoessner@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5555

STERLING – The Dixon Dukes showed some power by scoring three runs in the top of the sixth inning on Tuesday against Newman. The Comets answered with three runs in the bottom of the inning without collecting a hit. The Comets’ creative scoring proved to be enough in a 7-5 non-conference home victory. “We have the tools to be a pretty good team, we just haven’t been using them so far,” Newman coach Tom Wilson said. “Today, we

We beat a good Dixon team that is well-coached.” “It’s nice to have that support,” Newman pitcher Alex Buhler said. “I didn’t

feel real great after giving up those three runs. But, the team did a great job of picking me up.” The Comets (2-4) jumped out to a 4-0 lead by scoring four runs in the second inning. Matt Wagenecht walked with the bases loaded to score a run, and A.J. Sharp and Buhler had RBI singles. Elias Edmondson drove in the other run with a fielder’s choice groundout. “We were 6-for-41 in the last two games, so it was nice to come out and get some hits today,” Wilson said. “A.J. picked up his first hit of the year, and

Alex looked like his bat was heating up.” Dixon (4-4) chipped away with unearned runs in both the third and fourth innings. In both innings, the Dukes were a hit away from better results. “We just left too many guys on base today,” Dixon coach Sam Gallucci said. “We had too many strikeouts. The bats just weren’t there.” The bats came briefly alive against Buhler in the sixth inning. Ryan Dixon and Cody Mighell led off with back-to-back singles to left field. BUHLER CONTINUED ON B4

Perfect ending, perfect season 40-0 Huskies rout Fighting Irish in women’s final BY DOUG FEINBERG AP Basketball Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Geno Auriemma and Connecticut stand alone in women’s college basketball, and they reached the top in unprecedented fashion. The Huskies routed Notre Dame 79-58 in the first championship game featuring undefeated teams, winning their record ninth national title. Auriemma broke a tie with Pat Summitt and Tennessee for most all-time, doing it in her backyard. Breanna Stewart, who was The AP Associated Press Player of the Notre Dame guard Jewell Loyd tries to get through Connecticut Year, scored 21 points to lead center Stefanie Dolson (31) during the second half of Tuesday’s the Huskies (40-0), while Stegame in Nashville, Tenn.

I knew if we played great, we’d have a chance to win.” The victory also meant that UConn is now the center of the college basketball world, with both the men’s and women’s teams winning the championship in the same year again. The men’s team beat Kentucky in the title game Monday night. This pair of victories came a decade after the Huskies became the only school to accomplish the feat. “I couldn’t be prouder of what the men did last night,” Auriemma said. Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw congratulated the UConn coach when they shook hands after the game. HUSKIES CONTINUED ON B5

Adam Scott walks with caddie Steve Williams to the 14th tee during a practice round for the Masters on Tuesday in Augusta, Ga. The golf seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major begins on Thursday.

No Tiger to tame Woodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; absence felt as Masters draws near BY DOUG FERGUSON !0'OLF7RITER

AUGUSTA, Ga. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; One after another, some of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best players and favorites to win the Masters trudged up the hill on the opening hole to start their practice rounds. Phil Mickelson. Rory McIlroy. Adam Scott. It was typical of any Tuesday at Augusta National, except for the scoreboard to the right of where they were walking. The board has the names of all 97 players in the field, with blank boxes to put their scores when the tournament begins. On the far right side of the board is a list of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s noncompeting invitees. Tommy Aaron. Doug Ford. Tiger Woods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a weird feeling not having him here, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it?â&#x20AC;? said Phil Mickelson, a three-time Masters champion and the chief foil for Woods over the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been such a mainstay in professional golf, and in the majors. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awkward to not have him here. I hope he gets back soon. I hope heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back for the other majors. As much as I want to win â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and I know how great he is and tough to beat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it makes it special when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the field and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to win.â&#x20AC;? Woods hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been the same all year, even before back surgery last week. He is missing the Masters for the first time. His presence looms as large as some of the Georgia pines lining the fairways, though

AP

While Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods have spent the most of their careers competing for titles, Mickelson says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss not having Woods at the Masters this weekend.

Stuck on 14 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tigerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s majors -ASTERSn    53/PENn   "RITISH/PENn   0'!n    it will be forgotten when the opening shot is in the air Thursday, and a green jacket is awarded Sunday. Even so, Woods brings a buzz to any tournament, even at Augusta National. And this year, his absence has brought talk of the most wideopen Masters in nearly 20 years. Las Vegas has installed Adam Scott and Rory McIlroy as the betting favorites at 10-1, followed by Mickelson, Jason Day and Matt Kuchar at 12-1. McIlroy had his own version of a betting sheet on the table where he sat during his interview â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the tee times for the opening two rounds. Told that 97 players were in the field, the

24-year-old from Northern Ireland figured 70 had a chance to win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a few past champions that play that might not be able to compete. There might be a few firsttimers or a few amateurs that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compete,â&#x20AC;? McIlroy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the rest. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just looking down the list here. Stewart Cink. Tim Clark. Ian Woosnam â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no.â&#x20AC;? The room filled with laughter as McIlroy smiled and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sorry, Woosie,â&#x20AC;? referring to the 56-year-old former champion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of guys that can win, a lot of guys that have won PGA Tour events,â&#x20AC;? McIlroy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;OK, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing at Augusta.

Because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Masters and because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so big and so hyped up or whatever you want to say, you ought to remember that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still playing against the same guys you play with week in and week out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve beaten them before,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve beaten me before.â&#x20AC;? The PGA Tour is 21 tournaments into the season, and only one player (Zach Johnson) won while he was in the top 10 in the world. McIlroy and Scott each had comfortable leads going into the final round and lost to players outside the top 100. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think in the past, certainly thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been easy to go to events and look at a guy who is the guy to beat,â&#x20AC;? Scott said, not naming Woods because he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that scope has kind of broadened now. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of guys with the talent and the form that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily standing out above the others. But on their week, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be tough to beat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to think my name is one of those guys,â&#x20AC;? Scott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be one of the guys who has got a chance if I play well this week.â&#x20AC;? Scott had one more occasion to wear his green jacket Tuesday night as host of the Champions Dinner. Then, he sets out in a bid to join Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo, and Woods as the only players to win back-to-back Masters.

SAUK VALLEY COMMUNITY COLLEGE ROUNDUP

Softball splits with Black Hawk Tennis falls to Illinois Valley; golf places fifth on road "Y36-3PORTS3TAFF

Mackenzie Staples hit for the cycle in a doubleheader Tuesday, helping the Sauk Valley Skyhawks earn an Arrowhead Conference split with Black Hawk in Moline. Staplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; solo homer provided the lone run for Sauk (15-9, 5-5) in a 9-1 loss in the opener. She followed that with a 4-for-4 performance in

the nightcap, including a double, triple and three RBIs, leading the Skyhawks to a 9-1 victory. Priscilla Aponte added two RBIs in the second game, and Kiara Kaleel took both decisions. She struck out five without a walk, and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow an earned run in Game 2. Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tennis

(0-5) fell in an Arrowhead match at home. Their lone point came in the No. 4 singles match, as Troy Miller defeated Alex Lopez 6-4, 3-6, 10-7. Miller almost salvaged another point for his team in doubles, but he and partner Victor Renteria lost a close one, 9-8, Illinois Valley 8, Sauk 7-5 to Alex Lopez and Valley 1: The Skyhawks Broc Dodge.

Deets drawn to coaching DEETS

CONTINUED FROM B1

Upon graduating from Augie in 2007, Deets returned to Polo and became a high school biology teacher, a job which he said he â&#x20AC;&#x153;just fell intoâ&#x20AC;? when a science teacher happened to take a job in another district. He knew that he wanted to help his former mentor coach the sport he loves above all others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew for sure that I wanted to do it,â&#x20AC;? Deets said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;especially after having such a great high school coach in Tom, and a great college coach in Paul Olsen. It was just a natural fit.â&#x20AC;? Deets has served as one of Weltyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistants for the past six seasons, and Welty slowly groomed his protege to replace him. Over the last few years, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had Deets come up with training routines for the jumpers and hurdlers; the last couple of springs, Deets has been the one making the lineups for meets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was kind of a mutual understanding that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d take over the program

Deets said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He knew that now, I was ready to.â&#x20AC;? Combining those new organization skills with Deetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; natural athletic ability was what really told Welty the time was right to step aside. He also thought Deetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to reach the kids through his own more recent experiences would be that more effective. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the old coach going out, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the new guy

coming in whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really not that far away from the athletes in age, who maybe they can relate to a little better,â&#x20AC;? Welty said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a good sense of humor, a great rapport with the kids, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brought a lot of Augie with him back to us. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been great for the program.â&#x20AC;? Deetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; enthusiasm is evident, even in small doses. He stresses camaraderie to his athletes, which is the part of track and field that made the sport his favorite, even as a high schooler. Making friends with the guys youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re competing with always appealed to Deets, and making workouts fun and getting the most out of his athletes now comes from his natural competitive edge. And, in step with Weltyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mindset, he does admit that the kids seem to respond to what he says â&#x20AC;Ś especially when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right in the thick of things with them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m credible, that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been there and done it,â&#x20AC;? Deets said, before grinning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plus, I can still demonstrate most things to them â&#x20AC;Ś and still walk the next day.â&#x20AC;?

Nate Grocke, the Dukesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; catcher, stepped to the plate and sent a 1-2 pitch over the left-field fence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nate has been in a bit of slump,â&#x20AC;? Gallucci said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, that shows that he is about ready to come out of that.â&#x20AC;? The homer gave Dixon a brief 5-4 lead. Reliever Brandon Jagitsch (0-1) recorded an out to start the bottom of the inning, but then walked Sharp and hit Dillan Heffelfinger in the head. It was the second time that Heffelfinger was pegged in the head in the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brandon pitched reasonably well until he wore out there at the end,â&#x20AC;? Gallucci said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mitchell Wolfe was sick over the weekend, and just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t himself today to start the game. We were a little short on pitching from Saturday.â&#x20AC;?

third-base line. He was initially ruled out at first by the infield umpire, but the call was overturned by the plate umpire, who said that first baseman Cal Jarrett pulled his foot off the bag while reaching to catch the throw. Buhler then grounded into a fielderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice to score Sharp. Michael Ely walked in another run, and A.J. Murdockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wild pitch allowed Buhler to score to give Newman the 7-5 lead. Buhler (1-0) got one out in the seventh before walking Connor Sperling

and allowing a single by Murdock. Trevor Bolin earned the save by getting Jarrett to ground into a fielderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice, and striking out Jagitsch. Buhler finished with nine strikeouts, a walk, and one hit batter. He allowed six hits, with three of those coming in the sixth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just tried to keep my composure,â&#x20AC;? Buhler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every inning is a new start. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dwell on what happened on the last play. You just have to worry about the next pitch.

Duchesses down Princeton; Ward stellar against Winnebago By SVM Sports Staff

Shannon Longâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three-run home run provided the go-ahead runs in the top of the fifth inning, and the Sterling Golden Warriors won their conference opener 5-2 in Ottawa on Tuesday. Longâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blast erased a 2-1 deficit, and Lexy Staples made it stand up. The freshman pitched out of three jams throughout the game, allowing two earned runs and four hits while striking out five and walking three. Erin Stroup added an RBI and Karlie Mellott matched Longâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two-hit performance. Those two also scored on Longâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homer. Dixon 7, Princeton 1: Erin Smith struck out 11 in a complete-game victory, and also added a single, triple and three RBIs to lead the Duchesses to a win at home. Jessica VanOosten drove in two runs for Dixon, while Smith (2-2) allowed six hits without a walk. Brooke Bailey and Haley Fitzsimmons also had RBIs for the Duchesses. Rock Falls 4, Winnebago 0: Michaela Ward added a shutout

Ward surrendered only one hit and a pair of walks while striking out 11.

The Chicago White Sox hit six home runs in a 15-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night at Coors Field. Outfielder Avisail Garcia and first baseman Jose Abreu each hit two homers, and catcher Tyler Flowers and shortstop Alexei Ramirez added one apiece. Garcia and Flowers started it off in the second inning against Rockies left-hander Franklin Morales. Garcia hit a solo shot to left field on an 0-2 pitch, and Flowers followed with a two-run homer to left field to give the Sox a 3-0 lead. Abreu added a threerun shot to left field in the seventh inning off reliever Chadd Bettis to push the Sox lead to 7-2. Garcia and Ramirez went back-to-back in the eighth inning before Abreu added his second homer later in the inning. The Sox scored six runs in the eighth to

in the seventh against Tony Watson (1-0) on Anthony Rizzoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hit up the middle scoring Emilio Bonifacio, who went 3-for-5 and is batting .515. Castro hit a game-tying three-run homer in the third, and a solo shot in the sixth against Charlie Morton for his first career multi-homer game. Cardinals 7, Reds 5:

Pirates 7, Cubs 6: Pedro

Cubs right-hander Pedro Strop (0-1) walked two batters in the eighth and recorded only one out before being replaced by left-hander James Russell. Russell immediately walked Alvarez to load the bases, and Martin followed with a fly ball to right field that made it 7-6. The Cubs tied the game

Matt Holliday hit a goahead two-run double in the sixth inning that glanced off right fielder Jay Bruceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glove on the warning track, and the Cardinals won in St. Louis. Yadier Molina homered, and Peter Bourjos had three hits and an RBI to help the Cardinals clinch their 26th series win to go with three losses and two splits since 2003 against Cincinnati. Bruce had a two-run triple in the first, Billy Hamiltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second hit of the season drove in a run, and Ryan Ludwick had two RBIs for the Reds.

Irish lose in title game for third time in 4 years HUSKIES

CONTINUED FROM B1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said something like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I thought we were playing the Miami Heat for a while, you guys are just that good.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; What a great season, you know, things like that,â&#x20AC;? McGraw said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought ... LeBron was the only thing they were missing.â&#x20AC;? While the names change at UConn, from Rebecca Lobo to Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore and now Stewart, Auriemma has been the constant, winning nine titles in only 20 seasons â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including the last two. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never lost in a national championship game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Congratulations to the UConn Huskies for winning the 2014 NCAA National Championship!â&#x20AC;? Summitt said in a statement emailed to The Associated Press.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;My compliments also to coach Geno Auriemma for winning his ninth national title. He has accomplished this feat in record time.â&#x20AC;? It was the fifth unbeaten season for Auriemma and UConn, and the first time the Huskies went 40-0 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; matching Baylor as the only schools to accomplish that feat. The victory was also Connecticutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 46th straight dating back to last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NCAA tournament title run. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the third longest streak in school history â&#x20AC;&#x201C; well short of the NCAA record 90 straight they won. The loss was Notre Dameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third in the title game in the past 4 years. Kayla McBride finished off her stellar career with 21 points to lead the Irish, who were looking for their first championship since 2001. After proving to be no

challenge for the Huskies during the first 15 years of the rivalry which began in 1995, Notre Dame had owned the series lately, winning seven of the previous nine meetings. UConn though has won the last two, eliminating Notre Dame in the Final Four last season before topping them in the championship game this year. The two former Big East rivals, who have no love lost for each other, put on a show in a game that womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball hoped could transcend the sport. The coaches added to the drama of the game with their verbal sparring on Monday. But it was Auriemma who got the last word again. Even with the loss, it was a spectacular season for the Irish. Notre Dame lost Skylar Diggins to graduation and changed

conferences to the ACC. Neither mattered, as they ran through their opponents, winning by an average of 25.6 points while taking both the conference regular-season and tournament championships. The Irish lost senior Natalie Achonwa to a torn ACL in the regional final win over Baylor. Notre Dame wore warmup shirts with Achonwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nickname â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aceâ&#x20AC;? below her No. 11. The team played inspired basketball in the Final Four win over Maryland, where Notre Dame outrebounded the Terps by a record margin. The Irish couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t muster a similar effort against UConn and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gigantic front line. Stewart, Dolson and Kiah Stokes dominated the interior. The Huskies outrebounded the Irish 54-31, and held them to a seasonlow in points.

The lead tells partner the story

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Mark Twain said, “I thoroughly disapprove of duels. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.” Sometimes, in bridge, it is the lead that tells partner how to kill the contract – as in this deal. What should West lead against three no-trump? How would that steer East in the right direction? Some players like to open two no-trump with 19 highcard points. I will do that, but only if the hand is full of plus-values: lots of aces and kings, good intermediates and, preferably, a five-card suit. This North hand has too many minuses, especially

with respect to aces and kings. South does not like to respond one no-trump, but has no choice. West should lead the spade

nine, top of nothing. (Remember, if you lead low from length in an unbid suit, you guarantee at least one honor in that suit.) South takes the trick with dummy’s jack and calls for a low diamond. What should happen now? East must be wide awake. Since South has the spade ace and king, he cannot also hold the heart ace. So East should win immediately with his diamond ace and shift to the heart three, the low card saying that he has at least one honor in this suit and is trying to take tricks there. West wins with his ace and returns the heart seven, giving the defenders five tricks. Note that if East plays second hand low at trick two, South can sprint for home with three spades, one diamond and five clubs. © 2014 UFS
