TWIN CITIES | SELF HELP ENTERPRISES

Helping themselves to more space Thrift store, which helps fund nonprofit, moving to Sterling, bigger building BY KATHLEEN A. SCHULTZ kschultz@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5535

STERLING – It’s stage 3 for Stage Two Resale shop. The nonprofit Rock Falls thrift store at 225 First Ave., which raised money for the nowdefunct Sterling Christian School in Galt, was given to Self Help

Enterprises in February 2013. Self Help provides employment training and residential support for adults with disabilities. The building Stage Two is in was always cramped, and became even more so as donations of items rose in the wake of its new mission. Parking, too, has been an issue. The hope always has

been to move to larger accommodations. That hope is being realized: The store is moving across the river to a former Video Village store at 205 St. Mary’s St., just south of Kroger’s. That move will triple Stage Two’s space, said Carla Haubrich, Self Help’s executive director.

The building, which once was a grocery store called People’s Market, also has a large parking lot. Its first day in the new spot will be June 2. Hours will remain the same: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

STERLING – The case of a Sterling police detective is working its way through court in Tazewell County after charges were filed from a car accident in January 2013. Alex Chavira, 38, is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and failure to report an accident, though what the accident involved remains unclear. According to court documents, Chavira was staying at a hotel in East Peoria when he was stopped and questioned by two East Peoria police officers at his hotel. He was handcuffed by an officer and then, after questioning, the handcuffs were removed and Chavira returned to his hotel room. Police later entered his hotel room and escorted him to the hotel’s lobby, where he was arrested by a state police trooper and given a court date. According to the Tazewell County sheriff’s office, Chavira’s name doesn’t appear in its jail’s system, so no mugshot was available. The matter is expected to be resolved this summer.

COMMUNITY WATCH

Phone scam reported in the area Caller apparently seeks large donation STAFF REPORT NEWS SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

ROCK FALLS – The Rock Falls Chamber and the Carson & Barnes Circus warn residents of a phone scam in this area.

People have reported that they received calls asking for donations to the circus, but that those donations do not go through an entity related to the chamber or circus, according to a news release. The scammer apparently asks for large donations to the circus and mentions children’s tickets, but if

the recipient of the call doesn’t say yes or starts asking more specific questions, the caller hangs up. Children’s tickets are being sold at a discounted rate by Shelby Tuning, a representative from the circus, but the chamber warns that the scammer is unrelated. The chamber asks that

people should make sure they’re speaking to Shelby Tuning from Carson & Barnes Circus, or one of their staff. Any donation should go directly to the Rock Falls Chamber, 601 W. 10th St., Rock Falls IL 61071. Anyone with questions can call Bethany at 815625-4500.

Detective placed on ‘restricted duty’ DUI

CONTINUED FROM A1

Tazewell County is in central Illinois. Pekin is the county seat. Sterling Police Chief Ron Potthoff said Chavira is still working with department detectives, but in a different role. “I don’t like people getting paid for sitting at home,� Potthoff said. “So I brought him in here on what I call ‘on restricted duty.’ That way they’re

still being productive while they’re getting paid.� It’s the same type of shift that another detective in the department, Mike Henry, was placed on before pleading guilty in January to a misdemeanor battery charge that resulted from a fight in a Sterling bar. While on restricted duty, officers are “allowed to do some things, but not others,� Potthoff said. For example, an officer wouldn’t be allowed to be

on patrol and issue tickets alone. Chavira, a city employee, was assigned to the state-run Blackhawk Area Task Force at the time of the charge, Potthoff said. “The state rules say you can’t be on active duty while there’s a charge hanging over your head,� the chief said. An internal investigation being conducted by state police won’t be completed until Chavira’s court proceedings are finished, Potthoff said.

Chavira is scheduled for a bench trial July 16, according to online court records. His attorney, Brian Addy of Pekin, has filed a motion challenging his client’s arrest. The attorney claims that East Peoria police entered Chavira’s hotel room, “wherein he had a reasonable expectation of privacy,� and escorted him back to the hotel lobby. The officers had no right to enter Chavira’s room without an arrest warrant, Addy said.

RENEWABLE ENERGY | WIND FARMS

Official: Wind farm plan on way Opponents spread word through radio, print BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5525

PRINCETON – A wind energy company is drafting a plan for turbines in Bureau County, but the county is not sure what’s in the works, an official said this morning. In recent weeks, a group of wind farm opponents has used a public relations firm to tell the public about the efforts of Minnesotabased Geronimo Energy. That campaign has placed advertisements on radio and in the Walnut Leader.

The group, the Informed Farmers Coalition, is targeting the proposed Walnut Ridge and Green River wind farms, saying it wants to educate farmers before they consider new contracts with Geronimo. Turbines have yet to be built on either farm. In December, Geronimo bought the Green River project from Ireland-based Mainstream Renewable Power, near Walnut Ridge. The Green River project would build turbines in Whiteside and Lee counties, but Bureau

County’s zoning board rejected the company’s proposal for 19 turbines. Walnut Ridge has been approved in Bureau County, but the permits will expire at year’s end. The coalition says Geronimo is reaching out to landowners to sign new contracts. As of late, the company has given no indication about its plans for turbines in either project. It hasn’t returned calls from Sauk Valley Media. At the same time, the company appears to be

undertaking its own public relations effort. Last month, a Geronimo official took questions from elementary school students in Ohio, a Bureau County town that has seen its share of nearby turbines. Each student received a small tree from Geronimo in celebration of Earth Day. Kris Donarski, Bureau County’s zoning officer, said Geronimo has told her that it hopes to submit an application for turbines in the next couple of months, but she doesn’t know what the company is planning. “They are working with

landowners in the area. I have not seen a site plan,� she said. “With a wind farm petition, it takes longer to process the paperwork than if it were a simple rezone of one house.� Donarski acknowledged she has received more questions lately from Geronimo, usually about the process required by Bureau County. In a recent ad in the Leader, the coalition warned landowners to think through their decisions before signing contracts to allow turbines on their land. “Have you seen a truly independent lawyer to

review the contract?� the ad says. “Know the facts. There are two sides to every story.� Lee County landowner Larry Gerdes of the coalition said he and his nephew, Steve Gerdes, are handling much of the coalition’s expense. He said 30 percent of the participating landowners in the Walnut Ridge project didn’t re-sign contracts with Geronimo, which means the company has to find new participants. “We need to provide more education,� Gerdes said. “People don’t understand what they’re committing to.�

onald Sterling’s downward spiral continues as the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers because of offensive racist comments, captured in a secret recording. Until recently in Illinois, you couldn’t record someone in a private conversation without that person’s knowledge. That is still the law in California, where Sterling’s conversation with the woman presumably took place. Last week, I was on the phone with a man who tried to make the case that our coverage of Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn was unfair. Mid-conversation, he asked me whether I was recording the conversation. I told him no. “I heard a click,� he said. Then I told him what I have told others: I have never recorded a conversation secretly. At the beginning of my career, I used a recorder a few times at public meetings. But I quit because it was a hassle. At one time, I worked with a reporter who regularly recorded interviews without sources’ knowledge, in a state where doing so was legal. Once, it really helped him. A source said my co-worker had mis-

MILLEDGEVILLE – Chadwick-Milledgeville School District, which is dealing with a police investigation into reports that an inappropriate video was made in the boys high school locker room and shared with others, has called a special board meeting Monday evening. Members will meet in closed session to discuss “a complaint lodged against an employee� and “student disciplinary matters,� according to the agenda, which was emailed to Sauk Valley Media on Thursday afternoon. Nothing else is on the agenda. Depending on the course of the discussion, a vote may be taken at the end of the meeting, Superintendent Tim Sch-

quoted him. But he played back a recording to me showing that he quoted the source accurately. Still, he refrained from presenting this proof to the source. I guess he thought it seemed underhanded. If you’re talking with me and you hear a click, it’s not a recorder. Ogle sheriff’s page down The other day, a reader emailed me, asking why the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department hadn’t updated its Facebook page. My coworker, Matt Mencarini, recently reported that the agency’s last post was March 13, 5 days before the sheriff lost his bid for re-election. After seeing the reader’s email, I checked the department’s page. It was quietly taken down. I noticed that when Harn signs official documents, he includes his title – “Sheriff Michael Harn.� Even the president doesn’t do that.

A parent called police to make a complaint, and several students, including some on the baseball team, had been interviewed as of Wednesday, the chief said. The district has a zerotolerance policy when it comes to bullying or hazing, Schurman said Wednesday.

ILLINOIS

Two institutions under federal review Uof Chicago, Knox College probed for handling of sexual violence, harassment complaints CHICAGO (AP) – The University of Chicago and Knox College in western Illinois are on a list of dozens of institutions of higher education around the country under investigation for possible violations of federal law over the handling of sexual violence and harassment complaints. Investigators from U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights visited the University of Chicago earlier this year and plan a visit to Knox College in Galesburg

later this month. No details have been released about the complaints that triggered those inquiries. Both schools said they were cooperating. They are on a list of 55 colleges and universities under investigation. The U.S. Department of Education released the list Thursday, offering the first comprehensive look at which campuses are under review for possible violations. Investigators from the Office for Civil Rights visited the University of Chicago earlier this

year in connection with a complaint filed in March 2013. The university has not heard back from the OCR since the visit, spokesman Jeremy Manier said. OCR asked to review records, interview staff and meet with what the university described as “selected focus groups� of students to hear about their experiences with the university’s policies on sexual misconduct. In a statement released in February, the university said it “has made every effort to comply with the spirit and letter of this inquiry.�

It also emphasized “a particular commitment to addressing sexual misconduct and unlawful harassment and discrimination involving students� and said it has regularly updated its policies on how to handle sexual misconduct. The university said separately in February that it is considering adopting new student disciplinary procedures as well as creating a position for a specialist on sexual misconduct and discrimination under the leadership of the dean of stu-

dents. It hopes to implement the changes in July. Knox College President Teresa Amott said in a campuswide email Wednesday that the investigation there began in January. It involves a report of alleged sexual misconduct from October, though the email gave no details. College spokeswoman Megan Scott said she could not reveal specifics. OCR officials will visit the Galesburg campus the week of May 19 to interview students.

ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE

Half-million Illinois voters seek gerrymander end Group submits signatures, calls for ballot question SPRINGFIELD (AP) – With the help of wealthy donors and a bipartisan group of politicians, a petition to end the gerrymandering of Illinois election districts was presented Thursday, but it faces a stiff constitutional challenge that could keep the question off the November ballot. A group called “Yes for Independent Maps� submitted more than half a million signatures to the state Board of Elections, proposing a ballot question that would take the job of creating legislative districts away from lawmakers and give it to an independent commission of experts. It faces powerful oppo-

sition, including a lawsuit filed Wednesday by allies of House Speaker Michael Madigan, the state Democratic Party chairman, which also seeks to stop voters from imposing term limits in Illinois. Advocates of reform say the current method of allowing politicians to draw the state’s political maps leads to the majority party in Springfield unfairly accumulating power that can last a decade, by adjusting a district’s lines to protect incumbents and limit votes for political foes. Democrats now hold supermajorities in both the state House and Senate, partly due to maps their party drew after the 2010 Census. “Democrats have done it. Republicans have done it. If they didn’t do it, we would think some-

set up an 11-member commission to draw the maps, similar to recent reforms in California and Arizona. The group has 532,000 signatures, but only needs about 300,000 to get the proposal on the general election ballot. Past efforts to overhaul

the process have failed. The most recent in 2011 by The League of Women Voters, which supports the current measure, did not gather enough signatures. Opponents of reform say the current process is fair, and is a way to protect the interests of racial minorities and other constituent groups from having their influence diluted. At a hearing last week in Springfield, Madigan dismissed the proposal as an effort by “angry� Republicans to regain influence in the state. “Put the Republicans in charge of something and there’s going to be an adverse effect on minorities,� Madigan said. But other influential Democrats are lining up in support of reform, including David Axelrod, the political consultant who helped President Barack Obama get elect-

ed. Among those donating funds to the campaign are wealthy Illinois businessman and Republican donor Ken Griffin and billionaire former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. State Sen. Heather Steans, a Chicago Democrat, donated to the campaign. “Fundamentally, it’s to help restore faith in our political system,� Steans said. “It changes the incentive for people to work together, not to go to the extremes, which is a healthy dynamic.� Legislators now get the first shot at drawing a new map. But if a majority of lawmakers can’t agree on a plan, a bipartisan, eight-person commission is supposed to draw the map – which has occurred every year but 2011 since the process was established in the 1970 state constitution.

DIXON | PETUNIA FESTIVAL 50TH ANNIVERSARY

Memorabilia to bring back ‘some good memories’ Anniversary exhibit will be at Loveland Community House BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com    EXT

DIXON – Fifty years of Petunia Festival memories and memorabilia will be on display at Loveland Community House in June. Dave Johnson, vice president of operations for the festival, wants to have a piece of memorabilia from every year, and he wants residents to chip in what they have to help. Posters, buttons, brochures and other items can be donated or lent to Loveland, which already has some items, Johnson said. Starting June 1, all items that have been collected will be on display. “It’s a big deal for us – 50 years,� Johnson said. “We have seen some of the old brochures, and it brings back some good memories.� The 50th anniversary of the Petunia Festival will start July 1 and go

A beanbag doll was often made for each Petunia Fest year. In 1999, a Pinky Petunia was sold to commemorate the festival.

Professor writes book on Violent teen crews linked to famous Chicago mobsters 40 percent of city’s shootings BY BURT CONSTABLE $AILY(ERALD

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS (AP) – From his boyhood memories of the raid on a bookie joint under the Chicago apartment where he grew up to the murder cases he worked on as an officer with the Chicago Police Department’s organized crime division, Harper College professor Wayne A. Johnson has been steeped in the violence of mobsters. Isolated murders, such as the infamous Valentine’s Day Massacre or the beating deaths of brothers Anthony “Tony the Ant� and Michael Spilotro, have become scenes in mob movies. “But nobody ever put it in one place before,� says Johnson, who has done that with his new book, “A History of Violence: An Encyclopedia of 1,400 Chicago Mob Murders.� From the stabbing death of Harry Bush during the newspaper “circulation war� on July 6, 1900, to the Aug. 31, 2006, disappearance of 71-year-old Anthony “Little Tony� Zizzo of Westmont, Johnson has used court documents, police records, newspaper accounts and 14 years of personal research to compile more than a century of suspected mob murders. “You know what makes it so insidious? Their ability to get into places that affect every aspect of our lives,� says Johnson, who notes

Harper College professor Wayne A. Johnson, author of a new book about mob murders titled “A History of Violence: An Encyclopedia of 1,400 Chicago Mob Murders,� points to his grandfather, Albert “Abby� Kelfstrom, who happened to be a witness in the background of this photograph taken in 1930 after a mob hit on Alfred “Jake� Lingle. cases where politicians, judges and police officers cooperated with mobsters. “Once you are into these guys, they own you.� Appearing in countless articles and TV shows as an expert on the mob, Johnson spent 25 years as a Chicago police officer and served as chief investigator for the Chicago Crime Commission before getting his doctoral degree in education. He’s now an associate professor and program coordinator of law enforcement programs at Harper College. The stereotype of the Chicago mob as the Italian Mafia known as Cosa Nostra is a myth, says Johnson, who says organized crime boasts a diverse collection of people, includ-

ing many immigrants, who learned how to make money through illegal methods. The criminal groups formed partnerships and cut deals with each other, he says. Of the 1,401 murders Johnson details, he lists only 278 as “solved,� and the number of people convicted of those murders is even lower. “Just because they weren’t charged doesn’t mean it’s not solved,� says Johnson. In teaching his “Organized Crime� class, Johnson tells the Harper students that reputed mob boss Tony “Big Tuna� Accardo, who died in 1992 at the age of 86, lived the last years of his life just a short drive away, on Algonquin Road in Barrington Hills.

NEW YORK (AP) – There are more than 300 of them in New York – violent crews of dozens of 12- to 20-year-olds with names such as Very Crispy Gangsters, True Money Gang and Cash Bama Bullies. Police say these groups, clustered around a particular block or housing project, are responsible for about 40 percent of the city’s shootings, with most of that violence stemming from the smallest of disses on the street, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. “It’s like belonging to an evil fraternity,� said Inspector Kevin Catalina, commander of the New York Police Department’s gang division. “A lot of it is driven by nothing: a dispute over a girl, or a wrong look, or a perceived slight.� The trend of smaller, younger crews has also been seen in Chicago

and Northeast cities over the last few years as police have cracked down on bigger, more traditional gangs, experts said. While the Bloods, Crips and Latin Kings still exist, operating such money-making schemes as drug dealing, their members are usually older and understand the timeworn mantra of organized crime: Violence is bad for business. Not so for the crews, whose recklessness prompted former Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly in 2012 to launch an initiative to confront the crews dubbed Operation Crew Cut. Investigators now focus on gathering intelligence about specific crews – understanding their activities, allegiances and feuds, which they glean through traditional street policing and trolling of social media sites, cellphone photos and

even recorded jailhouse calls. Police have also stepped up arrests of the most active crew members. In Manhattan, prosecutors set up an internal email alert system that notifies them when crew member are arrested, even on minor charges, and provides beyond-therap-sheet details for bail arguments. The prosecutor might mention that the person was a suspect in another crime or had made threats on Facebook, for instance. In a recent case in Harlem, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. says a 2009 killing kindled years of vendetta attacks, including three killings and 30 shootings. Sixty-three people were rounded up, and at least 62 entered guilty pleas, including crew members so young that one told another to “mob up� after school.

Urgent letter to Russian people: Embrace peace Putin’s way dangerous in the long run

EDITORIAL

From parallel to diagonal, parking changes approach D

iagonal parking once was common in downtown shopping areas. Some communities have it to this day. But as automakers built larger and longer vehicles after World War II, the space dedicated to parking began to impinge upon the space dedicated to traffic lanes, and vice versa. What was a community to do? Adopt parallel parking, of course. It permitted more space for traffic lanes, though allowing for fewer parking spaces per block. Parallel parking added a supreme challenge to driver’s education students, not to mention just about everyone else. Downtown Dixon is home to many parallel parking spaces. That status is about to change, slightly, when one side of one block is converted to diagonal parking as part of the city’s streetscape project. Those who still have trouble parallel park-

Restaurant turnaround sets example JOHN VanDYKE Harmon

I would like to commend whoever has changed the way the Burger King restaurant is run. I used to not like the thought of going there until about a few months ago. The management is friendly and caring. When you go through the drive-

thru, they are friendly on the intercom, treat you like they care, and do not forget that you are sitting there waiting for your food. The food comes out just like it looks on the picture of their ads and what is placed on their windows. Burger King could really be an image for others to follow when it comes to pleasing and satisfying their customers. My hat is off to the management and staff.

“We are writing this open letter to you, the citizens of Russia, to offer you our perspectives, as leaders of European Union, the United States, Canada and Japan. We are addressing you in the hope that you and your leaders will return to the mutually profitable policies that we had hoped would make you our partner in the global economy. ‌â€? This is the letter that should have been written weeks ago. Indeed, the world’s economic leaders must write it immediately – if they expect to have even a chance of heading off the prospect that war will soon erupt on Europe’s eastern front, in eastern Ukraine. The writing of it doesn’t require an act of penmanship – but leadership. And just this once, the leadership must come from Europe, not the U.S. president alone. But don’t hold your breath while waiting. Europe’s leaders, from Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron to Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, have shrunk before our eyes and shirked their responsibility to lead in a time of extreme crisis. (Neville Chamberlain, call your office.) With Russia’s troops massed at the Ukraine border, Europe’s leaders must now tell Russia’s citizens what they urgently need to hear – in the hope that it may not be too late to do any good. â€œâ€Ś We hope you and your leaders will urgently return to the insightful policies you were pursuing as this year began. Your path seemed destined to bring to you, your children, and ultimately your grandchildren the long-term prosperity that comes with the responsibilities of long-term global partnership. It is not too late – if Russia returns to the leadership path that produced Sochi’s successful Winter Olympics and had many of us, the leaders of the G-8 nations, looking forward to returning to Sochi at your president’s invitation. ‌â€? INSTEAD, RUSSIA’S aggression in Crimea and eastern Ukraine forced the United States and Europe to order economic sanctions that target a few wealthy, connected Russians. But the sanctions are limp (“calibrated,â€? President Barack Obama calls them). Europe’s leaders lacked the backbone to stand and act firmly. They sent precisely the wrong message to Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

Why did Europe’s leaders fail to lead? And why is it urgent that they lead immediately? The answers can be seen in a quick glance at the big picture. It is, actually, two paint-by-the-numbers pictures. The Lack-of-Leadership Picture: A) 370 – that, in billions of dollars, is how much trade the European Union nations do with Russia each year. B) 26 – that, in billions of dollars, is the trade the United States does with Russia a year. (No wonder Obama finds it so much easier to apply tough economic sanctions against Russia for its reckless military threats and actual aggression in Ukraine.) C) 25 – that’s the approximate percentage of fuel that the European Union countries get from Russia. D) 33 – that’s the percentage of natural gas that Germany gets from Russia via the pipeline that runs through Ukraine. The Urgency Picture: A) 71 – the percentage of Russians who said they now “trust� Putin’s leadership, according to an independent poll published last week in The Moscow Times and other news outlets. B) 51 – the percentage who now say Putin had made Russia a “great, respected power.� C) 36 – the percentage of Russians who held that view just 1 year ago. Europe’s titular leaders, being professional politicians, know that with numbers like that, Russia’s president will never stop posing as a leader by threatening to catapult Europe into the sort of unshirted hell that Europe hasn’t seen since the dark old days of the early Cold War. So they must lead Russia’s citizens by at least making the truth real and palpable. Only then can there be a chance that Russia’s people can influence their leader to act in the name of prosperity – by returning to the prosperous path of peace. “... We are reaching out to you to make clear that your progress and prosperity is not just your dream. It is our dream as well. But only by walking the path of peace together can we make our mutual prosperity a reality.� sss Note to readers: Martin Schram is a veteran Washington journalist.

Kids are collateral damage in wife’s war Dear Abby: My wife and I both served in the military. When she returned from Egypt 19 months ago, she dropped a bomb on me, saying she didn’t want to be married anymore. She said she had settled for second best all her life, and that’s what she had done with me. She went on to say she knows there’s someone better than me out there, and she’s going to find him. All the evidence points to an affair, which she denies – constant trips out of town, emails and phone calls. We are now living paycheck to paycheck. We have no more

savings, and I’m paying all the expenses when it comes to the kids. She retired a year ago and refuses to get a job worthy of her experience. The worst part is, our kids have suffered. We have been separated

ever since she got back. She says our kids aren’t worth her trying to save our marriage. Our close friends and family are still shocked, but no one more than me. It has been a struggle, which almost caused me to have a breakdown. Everything I do now is to lessen the impact on our kids. What advice can you offer me? – Trying To Cope in Virginia Dear Trying To Cope: Please accept my sympathy. Your marriage is over, and you have to accept it. If you haven’t consulted a lawyer, you should do it

NOW to figure out what your responsibility – and HERS – will be to the children once your divorce is final. They should be cared for by the parent who is willing and able to give them stability, and the lawyer can help you determine this. From your description of your wife, that would be you, while she searches for someone she “deserves.� Personally, I hope she finds him, because the way she has treated you has been brutal. Dear Abby: I’m a student in a community college. I enjoy the diversity of the students here;

many are adults who are changing careers or getting the education they’ve always wanted. One woman in my class has a habit of bringing her toddler with her. I understand that sitters can be unreliable, and child care is expensive, but this disrupts the class – and I know it distracts the mother, as well. She often has to get up mid-lesson when her child needs to use the restroom. I don’t want to step on toes or intrude in people’s personal lives, but college is no place for an unruly toddler. How can I handle this? – Student in New York

Dear Student: I wholeheartedly agree with you that toddlers do not belong in college lectures where they distract the students. This is something that should be discussed with whomever is conducting the class, and if that doesn’t fix the problem, with the dean. P.S. Some colleges have baby-sitting facilities on campus. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.com or P.O.

has shot to fame, thanks in no small part to their extravagant facial foliage. Last year’s Boston Red Sox and their Fear the Beard movement marched all the way to a World Series title. And last summer, Procter & Gamble, which owns Gillette, acknowledged razor sales were falling, as did Energizer, which said its Schick men’s razor sales were off 10 percent. In a recent interview with Esquire Magazine, meanwhile, actor Tom Hardy compared cutting off his beard to removing his testicles. Facial hair is a historically fickle beast, a trend that has ebbed and flowed with the decades. During the “Mad Men�-era 50s, the Don Drapers of the world wouldn’t think of arriving

at the office without a fresh shave. During the free-wheeling ‘60s and ‘70s, however, the biker beard became a staple. At various times, mustaches, mutton-chop sideburns and goatees have also made appearances. Today, the infatuation seems to be with the beard, which, on a recent afternoon inside the Calico Beard and Mercantile, a salon and barber shop on Kansas City’s West Side, appeared to be alive and well. Tara Shaw opened the place in January 2013 after noticing the surge in popularity of beards in the 3 or 4 years prior. She attributes the trend to the influence of bearded celebs and members of prominent bands.

She also credits other factors: a desire for a return to nostalgic Americana and an association with the bluecollar culture. The stubbled and totally unshorn tend to agree, having grown attached to their beards – and what they represent. “How people present themselves reflects what they believe about themselves, and what they want people to believe about them,� says Chris Gorney, a principal at Second Life Studios, after an appointment to see his bewhiskered barber, Dane R. Casey. “I think there’s a kind of authenticity – a grunge, a grit – that comes with beards. People who don’t give a damn are the kind of people that people who

do give a damn want to be like.� Bearded Kansas Citian Shannon Schlappi began growing his now ample beard about 3 years ago, during a No-Shave November event, and has mostly had it ever since. He points to a shaving mishap suffered in the early stages of his beard growth as evidence of its popularity with others. While attempting to give his facial hair a trim, he cut too deep and was forced to shave the beard off entirely. Upon seeing him afterward, his daughter began to cry. “It was pretty clear to me that was something that needed to be part of my day-to-day life,� he says now. “So I wouldn’t have my daughter weeping.�

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS

Law school dean stepping down CHAMPAIGN (AP) – The dean of the University of Illinois College of Law is stepping down after a tenure that saw the school investigated for using inflated grades and entrance-exam scores to boost its reputation. Bruce Smith was appointed dean just as

the admissions scandal became public in 2009. The university announced Thursday he will return to the law school faculty. John Colombo, who primarily teaches tax law, was named interim dean effective June 1, upon board of trustees’ approval. During Smith’s tenure,

an investigation of marketing material found inaccurate data was posted online for the class of 2014. The inaccurate information was also forwarded to the American Bar Association and to ranking organizations, such as the influential U.S. News & World Report.

CHICAGO (AP) – More than 217,000 Illinois residents chose health plans in the new insurance marketplace under President Barack Obama’s health care law, far exceeding the administration’s goal for the state, federal officials announced Thursday. In its report, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced that enrollment nationwide was 8 million. California had the most enrollees, with 1.4 million, followed by Florida with 983,000 and Texas with more than 733,000. Illinois’ numbers exceeded by more than 70,000 the Obama administration’s original goal of 143,000. The federal report also shows that among Illinois residents who voluntarily disclosed their race or ethnicity, 69.1 percent were white, followed by African Americans, who made up 10.5 percent of those who voluntarily disclosed that information. Latinos lagged in enrollment, making up 9.5 percent of the total who chose a plan and volunteered their ethnicity. Latinos comprise about 16 percent of the population in Illinois, and the federal government estimated earlier this

year that 316,000 Latinos were eligible for either the marketplace or expanded Medicaid under the law. Gov. Pat Quinn said he was encouraged by the state’s overall enrollment number and the additional 287,000 who have enrolled in expanded Medicaid coverage. “We know this number will continue to grow as we push forward with our plans to reform and improve our health care system,� he said in a statement. Volunteers in Illinois found it took persistence to get people to follow through with enrollment, especially among young residents and minorities. “The more contact we had with those folks, the more likely they were to be enrolled,� said David Elin, who directed the Illinois sign-up campaign for Enroll America, a nonprofit with ties to the Obama administration. The Enroll America campaign built a database on the 180,000 Illinoisans reached by its volunteers, recording information given voluntarily during every contact they made and whether the person targeted reported signing up for coverage.

Heartbreaking video shows Family hopes Adams teenagers on sinking ferry lands murder charge SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – Soon after the ferry began to tilt, there was nervous laughter, jokes about the Titanic and talk of selfies and Facebook posts from the doomed high school students huddled below deck. But the lighthearted atmosphere soon turned serious as the listing worsened. Fear began building, and one student asked, “Am I really going to die?� The shaky video – at times poignant and heartbreaking as the teens said last words to their loved ones – was found on the cellphone belonging to 17-year-old Park Su-hyeon when his body was recovered after the disaster on the morning of April 16 off South Korea. The boy’s father, Park Jong-dae, provided it Thursday to The Associated Press, saying he wanted to show the world the conditions aboard the Sewol as it sank. He earlier released it to select South Korean media. Information such as video can be recovered from micro SD cards in cellphones even if the device is submerged. More than 300 people are dead or missing in the disaster, which has plunged South Korea into mourning and touched off anger and shame. About 220 bodies, mostly from inside the submerged vessel, have been recovered. More than 80 percent of the victims were students from a high school in Ansan, south of Seoul, on their way to the tourist island of Jeju for a school trip. The group of teens in Park Su-hyeon’s video alternated between bluster, attempts at humor and unmistakable fear. Only one could be seen wearing a life jacket at the beginning of the clips, which started at 8:52 a.m. and ended, with a small break between them, at 9:09 a.m., when everyone appeared to be wearing them.

Detectives continue to investiage him over slaying

AP

In this photo taken from the mobile phone of deceased South Korean high school student Park Su-hyeon and released by his father Park Jong-dae, a student lies down inside the sinking ferry Sewol April 16 on waters near Jindo, South Korea. Soon after the ferry begins to tilt, nervous laughter can be heard from the high school students huddled below deck. In video clips from the cellphone of Park Suhyeon, a victim of a disaster that has shaken South Korea, the teenagers talk of taking selfies, wonder if they’ll make the news, and discuss posting about the excitement later on Facebook.

Watch online Go to http://apne. ws/R7iRbX to see the entire video found on the cellphone belonging TO YEAR OLD0ARK3U hyeon when his body was recovered after the disaster on the morn INGOF!PRILOFF3OUTH Korea. Some of the students struggled as they tried to buckle the life jackets. As the listing worsened, they joked about “final commemorative pictures� and “defying gravity� by trying to walk on the walls. “It’s like we’re becoming the Titanic,� one student said. At 8:53 a.m., less than 2 minutes into the video

and 2 minutes before a crew member on the bridge made the ferry’s first distress call, one student said: “Am I really going to die?� At the start the video, a message blared from the ferry’s loudspeakers: “Don’t move away from your places and brace for any possible accidents.� In subsequent announcements, passengers were again told to stay put, even as some questioned whether they should flee. The last message from the bridge came at 9:08: “We’re again announcing: For passengers who can wear life vests, please wear them now. Never move away from your places.�

BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; For decades, Helen McKendry has demanded that Sinn Fein chief Gerry Adams come clean about the Irish Republican Armyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abduction, slaying and secret burial of her mother in 1972, and his alleged role as the outlawed groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Belfast leader who ordered the killing. As detectives interrogated Adams for a second day over the unsolved slaying of the 37-year-old widowed mother of 10, who was falsely branded a British spy, the daughter who led a campaign for the truth says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s praying for a murder charge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping against hope that he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t walk out free,â&#x20AC;?

Are You All In? The expression â&#x20AC;&#x153;all inâ&#x20AC;? refers to wagering oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire stake in poker, and thus has the connotation of being entirely committed to oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand, or by extension, to whatever one is doing. One could commit oneself entirely to a business proposition by investing all of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s savings, for instance. Committing yourself to God is a lot like declaring that you are â&#x20AC;&#x153;all in.â&#x20AC;? That is, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play half of our stake or only invest half of our resources in the kingdom of heaven.We must be completely committed to the spiritual life, wholeheartedly and singlemindedly giving our lives over to God. Anything else and you just arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments!â&#x20AC;? Psalm 119:10

Another break for Hawks

W

hile you were sleeping Wednesday, the Wild were putting the Avalanche to bed for the season by completing a seven-game upset in overtime. And so, the Blackhawks get as lucky with their second-round opponent as they did with their first, when they fell into a matchup with the stumbling Blues, losers of six straight to end the season, three straight at home in regulation. Sure, the Blues won the first two games, but the Blackhawks were the more talented team and, once they stopped the stupid stuff, they proved it with four straight wins. In lucking into a series with the Wild, the Hawks face a wild-card team instead of a division champion, and get homeice advantage, neither of which would’ve happened if the Avalanche had won. What’s more, the Hawks get a team that needed seven games to advance, which should’ve taken something out of the Wild, and the fact that they had to play four games in Denver at altitude should’ve taken even more out of them.

Mehrens’ one-out base hit sends Dixon to first conference win BY PATRICK MASON pmason@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5550

DIXON – Riley Mehrens’ eyes shifted upwards toward the sky as he thought back to the last time he had walk-off hit in baseball. “It wasn’t in high school,” Mehrens said. “It was in Bronco League.” He was 11 or 12 years old. The next time the Dixon second baseman is asked the question, he won’t have to think as hard, because he can point to Thursday’s 2-1 win over Northern Illinois Big-12 West division opponent Ottawa. Dixon (5-12, 1-7 NIB-12 West) had the bases loaded with one out and trailed 1-0 in the bottom of the seventh when Mehrens smacked a two-run walk-off single. He was greeted by his teammates with hugs and high fives.

Star of the game: Cal Jarrett, Dixon, 6 IP, 10 strikeouts, 2 hits Key performers: Jake Less, Ottawa, 6 1/3 IP, 3 H, 2 R; Riley Mehrens, Dixon, 1-for-3, walkoff two-run single Up next: DeKalb at Dixon (2), 10 a.m. Saturday “That was such an exciting win,” Dukes coach Sam Gallucci said. “I just didn’t want to lose 1-0. These guys told me before the inning started, ‘We’re going to win this.’” Cal Jarrett started the game for Dixon and threw one of his best games of the season. He allowed just two hits through six innings while walking two. SINGLES CONTINUED ON B3

STERLING – There was one thing that Kylie Ackerman wanted to make perfectly clear after Thursday’s game against Newman. “It didn’t hurt,” Ackerman said.

The ball smacked off the side of Ackerman’s head and bounced off her glove. She dropped to the ground as Ferris reached first. Within moments, blood was running down the side of her face, as teammates and coaches converged on the circle. She gave them the same, “It didn’t hurt,” sentiment immediately, but left the game to have the gash treated in the dugout. “When you’re a pitcher, you know that at some point you’re going to have one like that,” Ackerman said. “It’s not a big deal, and I’ll be ready to get back out there next time.”

Rosie Napravnik (right), seen here riding Bayern during the Kentucky Derby Trial race last weekend, is looking to become the first female rider to win the Derby. She will ride Vicarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Trouble, a 20-1 horse coming out of the No. 1 post position, in Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race at Churchill Downs in Louisville.

Rosie chasing history Napravnik looking to become first woman Derby winner BY BETH HARRIS !02ACING7RITER

LOUISVILLE, Ky. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; She started out her career disguising her gender, riding under the initials A.R. Napravnik. In the maledominated world of horse racing, Anna Rose Napravnik figured sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have better luck if nobody noticed a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name in the track program. With her red hair tucked under her helmet, she blended in with the male jockeys in their brightly colored silks, white pants and polished black riding boots. Nine years later, Rosie Napravnik is one of the rising stars in the sport, having long ago discarded her ruse. Now the 26-year-old from New Jersey will try to make history this weekend and become the first woman to ride a Kentucky Derby winner. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s achieved firsts before. She was the first woman to win the Louisiana Derby, and did it twice. She also was the highestplacing female rider in the Kentucky Derby, finishing fifth last year aboard Mylute.

a strong chance to win it again Friday with early 4-5 favorite Untapable. Her mount in the Derby on Saturday is 20-1 long shot Vicarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s In Trouble. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I think about the things Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done in my career, it seems like I just started yesterday,â&#x20AC;? said Napravnik, a winner in her very first race just days after finishing her junior year in high school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in so many different places.

Not much would be better than winning the Derby on her third try. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facing a built-in challenge: Vicarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s In Trouble drew the dreaded No. 1 spot in the starting gate. With 19 horses on his outside fighting to move inside to save ground, he and Napravnik will be under the gun when the gate springs open. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He gets out of that gate fast every single time,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I have to ride somebody out of there, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s him.â&#x20AC;?

Senna remembered two decades later Memorial gathering held on 20th anniversary of driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death BY ANDREW DAMPF !03PORTS7RITER

IMOLA, Italy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The crowd resembled the kind of gathering normally reserved for a Formula One podium celebration. Only this time, the thousands in attendance fell silent at exactly 2:17 p.m. Fans, family members, and fellow and current Formula One drivers attended a solemn but also festive memorial Thursday to mark the exact 20th anniversary of Ayrton Sennaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. The ceremony was held on the Imola circuitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tamburello curve, where Senna crashed into a concrete wall at about 185 mph. Austrian rookie Roland Ratzenberger, who died in qualifying a day before, was also remembered. Among those in attendance were Gerhard Berger, Sennaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teammate with McLaren, and current Ferrari drivers Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we all agree that he was the best driver of all time,â&#x20AC;?

Dixon center fielder Cody Mighell canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t track down a fly ball Thursday during the Dukesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; NIB-12 West home game against Ottawa. That led to the Piratesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lone run, but Dixon rallied with two runs in the bottom of the seventh for a 2-1 victory.

Jarrett finds good groove on mound SINGLES

CONTINUED FROM B1

He struck out 10 Ottawa batters with a heavy fastball that stayed down in the zone, and mixed in a slow curveball to keep batters off-balance. The only blemish to his stat line came after allowing an unearned run in the third. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to establish my fastball because my arm felt really good today,â&#x20AC;? Jarrett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just felt unathletic on the mound lately, and I wanted to come in here and get it going.â&#x20AC;? He was anything but unathletic, and kept his team in the game until the decisive seventhinning. Gallucci pulled Jarrett after his six innings

due to a high pitch count (98) in favor of Payton Murphy. Murphy (1-0) allowed two hits in the top of the seventh, but worked out of a jam and held Ottawa scoreless, setting up the exciting final at-bat for the Dukes. Ottawa starter Jake Less cruised through six inning, allowing just one hit until Dixon gave him trouble in the seventh. A.J. Murdock led off the inning with a single before Jarrett grounded out. Ryan Dixon singled, and the Dukes had runners at the corners with one out. Ottawa made a pitching change to Seth Coffey, who had trouble finding the zone and hit the next batter, Nate Grocke, with a pitch, setting up the

bases-loaded situation for Mehrens. Mehrens was 0-for-2 in the game to that point. He struck out looking to end the second inning, and was thrown out by the catcher in his next at-bat in the fifth, after he barely clipped the ball and drove it straight into the soft infield. When Mehrens walked up for his third at-bat, Gallucciâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind went into overdrive. He was running through scenarios about whether to let Mehrens swing away or to ask the sophomore to bunt for a possible suicide squeeze play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was thinking about a bunt,â&#x20AC;? the fourth-year coach said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but with A.J. [Murdock] at third, if he missed the bunt, A.J. is out, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the

tying run. Who is coming up and who is running at third, I have to think about all that stuff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Riley told me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I can hit this guy,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and he did. It was a good, solid hit.â&#x20AC;? With the game on the line, the sophomore delivered. He took a 1-0 pitch into left-center field and raced to first. He rounded the bag and watched as Murdock scored the tying run from third and teammate Ryan Dixon followed, scoring standing up for the winning run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt really good off the bat,â&#x20AC;? Mehrens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Especially because I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been hitting well lately, so it felt pretty good. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just having some fun out there.â&#x20AC;?

Choice to jump can set points

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

This week, we have been studying strong jump shifts. To check that you have the idea, look at today’s South hand. North opens one heart and East passes. What should South bid? While you decide, I have said that a strong jump shift should promise 13-16 highcard points. In the days of yore, responder needed 17-19 high-card points. As I explained three days ago, this was not best. But if responder has a two-suiter, by the time he adds shortage points, his hand will probably be worth 17-19 support points: high-card plus shortage points. In this deal, though, South must respond one spade, not two spades. Don’t make a

strong jump shift with a twosuiter unless partner opened in one of your suits. A sensible sequence is one heart - one spade - three spades - four no-trump - five

diamonds - five no-trump - six hearts - six spades. It is difficult to bid seven notrump (the best contract) or seven spades with confidence when a king is missing. However, let’s assume that West leads the club jack against seven spades. How should South plan the play? Declarer has 13 top tricks: five spades, five hearts, one diamond and two clubs. So, he does not need to risk the diamond finesse. He should win trick one in his hand with the club ace, draw trumps (leaving the ace or king in the dummy as an entry), unblock the heart ace and king, cross to dummy with a trump, and cash those lovely winners (the heart Q-J10 and club king), discarding his four diamond losers. © 2014 UFS

Erie-Prophetstown’s Kylie Ackerman delivers a pitch during Thursday’s 13-1, six-inning win over Newman in Sterling. Ackerman left the game in the sixth inning after being struck with a batted ball.

Panthers tack on seven in sixth PAIN

CONTINUED FROM B1

Panthers coach Bob Phelps thought the gash might need stitches, although the tough sophomore didn’t seem interested in a trip to the hospital. Savannah Mettler came in to finish the game. After a wild pitch moved Ferris to second, groundouts by Julie Hurd and Jenna Stevens plated the lone run for the Comets (9-8, 3-5 Three Rivers North). “We had a few innings where we started out with a hit, and then we would just strand them,” Newman coach J.D. Waldschmidt said. “We’re a young team, and we played like it today. Too many mistakes in the field, and they made us pay for it.” The Panthers (17-2, 6-0) led 2-0 heading into the fifth inning, as Newman freshman pitcher Lakyn Waldschmidt (6-3) had kept them guessing at the plate. But EP stared guessing right in the fifth. Laykin Miner opened the inning with a single. After a strikeout by Kaeli Kovarik, Stephanie Thulen lined a hit to left field. The ball got past Rachel Grennan and rolled all the way to the fence, allowing both Miner and Thulen to score. A throwing error on the next play not only allowed Mettler to reach, but also move to second. She advanced

another 60 feet on a wild pitch, before scoring on a groundout by Emily Cox. Ackerman closed the scoring in the inning with a long home run to left field. “She came inside on me, and that’s the first time that I have ever hit an inside pitch out like that,” Ackerman said. “She had worked the ball inside and out pretty well the first time through the order, and we weren’t able to do much against her. The second time through, we had it figured out.” Three straight hits to open the sixth chased Waldschmidt. Only two runs resulted from those hits, as Alicia Stout was thrown out at the plate after an infield single by Addison Morse. Samantha Miller came in, and a combination of poor defense and walks led to five more runs. “We’ve been a team that hits the ball like that all season,” Phelps said. “You can’t pitch around anyone, because the next girl can hit, too. They are a nice little club, but they made a few mistakes that opened the door for a couple big innings.” “That’s the best offensive team in the conference,” J.D. Waldschmidt said. “I thought Lakyn pitched well, but there were too many errors, and then she got frustrated. It’s disappointing, because we know we can compete better than that.”

Newman shortstop Mady Ferris fields a ground ball from Erie-Prophetstown’s Clare Kramer during Thursday’s game in Sterling.

The Bulls expected a busy offseason. Merely at its outset, they couldn’t have envisioned what transpired Thursday. Los Angeles-based media ran with news that the Lakers will seek permission from the Bulls to interview Tom Thibodeau for their vacant head coaching position, created when Mike D’Antoni resigned. Thibodeau, the 2011 Coach of the Year, just finished the first of a 4-year extension through 2017 worth $17.5 million. As of Thursday evening, the Bulls hadn’t heard from the Lakers. When similar rumors surfaced during last season that the Knicks – before hiring Phil Jackson as team president – might pursue Thibodeau at season’s end, indications were the Bulls either wouldn’t grant permission, or would place very high demands on possible compensation. It’s logical that same thinking would apply should the Lakers call. The Los Angeles Times reported Thibodeau is merely one name on a long list of high-profile candidates the Lakers are considering in a search that is expected to last for weeks. Sources said Thibodeau was involved last summer in planning discussions for the Bulls’ new practice facility scheduled to open in August or September. He also has been involved in personnel discussions regarding next season, with sources indicating he is a proponent of trying to add Carmelo Anthony. Given that Anthony

has spoken highly of Thibodeau, the coach would be an attractive recruiting piece if the Bulls remain serious in their pursuit of him if, as expected, he opts to become a free agent. The fact the Lakers even would seek permission to interview a coach who has won at a high level with his current team and has 3 years remaining on his contract underscores one of the league’s worst-kept

secrets – that Thibodeau’s relationship with management isn’t perfect. Several incidents – Thibodeau taking months to sign his extension, the ouster of lead assistant coach Ron Adams after last season, the Luol Deng trade and other personnel decisions – have created an occasionally divisive working atmosphere. Both parties have downplayed the dysfunction publicly. And there were

ATLANTA – The Indiana Pacers have changed who they are, going to a different style in hopes of surviving the opening round of the playoffs. No matter what, they can always count on David West. With the top-seeded Pacers poised for an early summer, West fearlessly led a 16-4 run to end the game, extending the season with a 95-88 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday night. “He’s our rock,” Indiana coach Frank Vogel said. “There’s no other way to put it.” Trailing 3-2 after losing at home for the second time in the best-of-seven series, Indiana was in big trouble when the Hawks

stretches of a more harmonious relationship this season, though the Deng trade caught Thibodeau off-guard. Thibodeau has established himself as one of the game’s elite coaches. Thibodeau also has a strong relationship with ownership, loves coaching Derrick Rose, and enjoys the city of Chicago. Thibodeau has ties to Lakers star Kobe Bryant, working him out as a youth in Philadelphia when Thibodeau worked as a 76ers assistant coach. But the Lakers are in a rebuilding mode, and Thibodeau repeatedly praised the Bulls’ core last season.

Thunder forward Kevin Durant shoots over Marc Gasol during Oklahoma City’s 104-84 win over the Grizzlies in Memphis. Durant scored 36 points to help force a Game 7 in the Western Conference first-round series. pushed out to an 84-79 lead with just over 3 minutes remaining, cheered on by a raucous crowd that barely sat down in the second half. But, for the fourth time in this back-and-forth affair, the road team won. West seemed to make every big play down the stretch, scoring four straight points and forcing a huge turnover to begin the turnaround. He hit two more baskets in the final minute to wrap things up, finishing with 24 points. Game 7 is Saturday in Indianapolis. Paul George also scored 24 points for the Pacers, making four straight free throws to help fend off a team that was trying to become only the sixth No. 8 seed to win a playoff series.

Jeff Teague scored 29 points, nearly pulling out a victory on a night when Atlanta shot just under 36 percent.

Thunder 104, Grizzlies 84: Kevin Durant scored

36 points to break out of a slump, as the Thunder routed the Grizzlies in Memphis to force a decisive Game 7. Russell Westbrook added 25 points for the Thunder, who haven’t been eliminated in the first round of the playoffs since 2010. They took control early with Durant scoring 14 points in the first quarter, led by 15 at halftime and never let Memphis get closer in the second half in the first game in the series to end in regulation since the opener. Durant also had 10 rebounds and made 14 of

15 free throws. Reggie Jackson had 16 points off the bench for the Thunder. Game 7 is Saturday night in Oklahoma City. Marc Gasol had 17 points and Zach Randolph 16 for Memphis. Guard Mike Conley strained his right hamstring, briefly returned, then left for good with 8:48 left. Durant had to answer questions after the shootaround Thursday about being called “Mr. Unreliable” in a headline in the Oklahoma City newspaper. Durant said he had no problem with the headline, and that he just needed to hit shots and be more aggressive. Smiling just before tipoff, Durant did just that as he finished 11 of 23 from the floor. He continued to struggle outside the arc, where he missed all six of his attempts.

Blackhawks should easily tame Wild ROSENBLOOM

CONTINUED FROM B1

But perhaps the biggest advantage the Hawks could have is Minnesota’s leaky Ilya Bryzgalov in the opposing net, not Colorado’s vexing Semyon Varlamov, who stoned the Hawks all season. Bryzgalov came on late in the third period of Game 7 to replace injured Darcy Kuemper shortly after he gave up a go-ahead goal. Kuemper, who is right behind Corey Crawford in playoff goals-against average at 2.03, left the game as a result of a

collision with teammate Ryan Suter. If Kuemper can’t go, then the Hawks get to face a backup who lost both playoff starts against the Avalanche, getting yanked in one game after giving up three goals on 14 shots, and allowing five goals in the other. Bryzgalov comes to the United Center with a gruesome 4.25 goalsagainst average and a laughable .826 save percentage. He ought to come to the United Center in a limo sent by the Hawks. In front of Bryzgalov, or whoever the Wild throw in net, is a team that is

the opposite of the eyesore that Jaques Lemaire coached. Zach Parise, Jason Pominville and Mikko Koivu lead a better group of forwards than the one that scored seven goals in last year’s five-game playoff loss to the Hawks. This postseason, the Wild have goals from 10 different forwards. This edition of the Wild can skate and shoot. I expect the Wild to go after Crawford the way they torched Varlamov in Game 7, and that means top shelf all night. The Wild took advantage of Varlamov’s aggressiveness and

butterfly style to pick corners, and Jared Spurgeon and Nino Niederreiter in particular picked them brilliantly Wednesday night. The Wild came back four times in Game 7 before finally winning it, and they beat the Hawks three times in the regular season. But the Wild didn’t beat these Hawks, the Stanley Cup playoff Hawks, the defending champion Hawks who are checking, skating and scoring like the gold standard that they have been. And the Wild won’t beat the Hawks more than once in this round, if that.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A prospective career move should be put on hold for the moment. Your peers will be glad to give you a hand if you are willing to ask for help.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Get serious about your career goals. The position you desire is there for the taking. Get working to obtain whatever qualifications you need to pursue your dreams. Believe and achieve.
