Talk of progress on JFK’s birthday Dem leaders rally the troops along campaign trail BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5570

Jodi Fitzgerald celebrates as the verdict of guilty is read Thursday at the Rock Island County Justice Center in Rock Island. Sheley was found guilty in the June 28, 2008, bludgeoning deaths of Fitzgerald’s brother, Brock Branson, 29, his girlfriend, Kilynna Blake, 20, her 2-year-old son, Dayan, and Kenneth Ulve, 25, in Rock Falls.

DEER GROVE – Today, Jesse White officially became the longest-serving secretary of state in Illinois history, and he shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The 79-year-old White was at Deer Valley Country Club on Thursday to speak at the Whiteside County Democrats’ JFK Dinner. White is running for a fifth term as secretary of state, after serving as a state representative for 16 years. Since assuming his current post in 1998, he has handily disposed of his opponents – the closest anyone has come since is 28 points. White rallied the troops at the fundraiser while focusing on a theme of 50 years of progress since the death of the nation’s 35th president. But the secretary of state’s concept of progress was developed at an early age, and from a vantage point that few are fortunate enough to secure. PROGRESS CONTINUED ON A4

ROCK FALLS – Around 11 p.m. on June 28, 2008, Brock Branson, Kilynna Blake, her son, Dayan, and Kenneth Ulve were ambushed and brutally murdered in their Rock Falls apartment, beaten repeatedly with a hammer. Nicholas Sheley was the one who delivered those blows, a Rock Island County jury decided Thursday. Ulve was killed first. Then Sheley waited

until Branson and the Blakes got home before ambushing them in their hallway. Kilynna Blake’s cry of “Oh god, don’t! Stop!” ultimately was silenced by Sheley. The 12-person jury deliberated for almost 4 hours before reaching a guilty verdict against the Sterling man. Judge Jeffrey O’Connor set Sheley’s sentencing for Aug. 11. The jury also found the deaths to be “exceptionally brutal and heinous indicative of wanton cruelty.” GUILTY CONTINUED ON A13

The video interviews involved two children who were living with George at the time of the 2010 incident.

After reviewing the interviews, Jacobson said the responses from the children,

‘A man with power and strength’ Longtime Dixon volunteer, Shaw CFO dies at 75 BY KATHLEEN A. SCHULTZ KSCHULTZ SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

WASHINGTON – Phil Metka, former chief financial officer with Shaw Media and a longtime fixture in the Dixon volunteer community, died WednesPhil day at OSF Metka St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria. He was 75. Metka, who received his degree as a certified public accountant from Northern Illinois University, retired in July 2007 after 27 years of service to Shaw Newspapers, now Shaw Media, and to the city of Dixon, where he had lived since joining the company in 1980.

pany offices. “Tears of sorrow, as well as smiles of fond memories, abounded in the offices where those of us who labored closest with Phil still do.� Shaw remembers Metka as an individual who exercised his authority in wise, considerate, compassionate, and responsible expressions of Biblical meekness ... that is, strength under discipline. “Quite honestly,� Shaw reflected, “I can’t say how Phil was able to be the leader that he was. I believe all motivation and behavior is quite

complicated and deeply personal. But, I do know what I observed. “We saw a man with power and strength who put the good of the company, and that of others, ahead of his own interest. All of us are better for it today because of the time we had with Phil. He was a great mentor.� Phil was active in countless civic organizations. He was past president of the Dixon Petunia Festival Corp. and of the Dixon Rotary Club, where he earned the Paul Harris Fellow Award. He also was involved with the

Dixon Area Chamber of Commerce, the Dixon Athletic Booster Club and CASA’s 15th Judicial Circuit. Phil and Nancy, his wife of 52 years, moved to Washington after his retirement. While there, his passion for community service continued. He volunteered at Threads, Hope and Love in Washington and was a member of the Washington Rotary Club, as well as St. Patrick’s Catholic Church. He was an avid golfer, and a big sports fan in general. Nancy survives, along with his daughter, Stacey (Jeff) Little, also of Washington, and his son, Dan (Kelly) Metka of Woodstock, Georgia; seven grandchildren, Brittany Metka, Stefanie (Alan) El-Darazi, Jacy Little, Taylor Little, Baylie Little, Lawson Metka, and Phillip Metka; one greatgranddaughter, Patricia Bick; and two brothers, Jimmy (Lennie) Metka of Philadelphia, and Joseph (Emily) Metka of Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

“When I was a student at Alabama State University in Montgomery, Alabama, my minister was Martin Luther King Jr.,� White said. “I was in the middle of the civil rights movement when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus in Montgomery.� White said he vividly recalled the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated. “I was teaching school when he was shot,� White said. “I remember the students, in tears, coming in to tell me about it.� White retraced the Democratic administrations of presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. He lauded the human rights accomplishments of Clinton, and the historic progress inherent in Obama’s ascent to the Oval Office. “We have made so much progress in the areas of civil rights, health care, education, technology, and transportation,� White said. “Now we must ask ourselves what we can do to continue on that path of progress.� Keys to continued progress are keeping kids in school and getting people registered to vote, White said. The secretary of state then asked for support for all of the Democratic candidates for state office, including speakers Lisa Madigan, Sheila Simon and Paul Vallas. Madigan disappointed some of the party faithful by passing on a run for governor, instead deciding to go after a fourth term as attorney general.

DIXON – The Dixon Park District’s 2014-15 fiscal year budget was approved and signed Wednesday night. The budget, which includes $1,293,045 in revenue and $1,290,631 in expenses, was voted on during the Park District’s regular meeting. Expenses increased by $7,964 from the 201314 fiscal year, while

revenue increased by $46,028. The Park District made up the revenue shortfall last year, Executive Director Deb Carey said, by transferring money from its bank account. Revenue has increased by $7,621 since the 201112 fiscal year, and budgeted expenses have increased by $17,516. Page Park parking was also discussed during the Park District’s board meeting Wednesday night, as it relates to games at the fields. Board members discussed the parking con-

gestion and safety, Carey said, and will work with the Al Morrison Baseball complex to reduce congestion. The start times for games could be staggered for next year, Carey said, to help with the issue. Noise at Woodcote, the cottage at Lowell Park the Park District rents out, brought several nearby residents to the meeting Wednesday night, Carey said. The Park District will review the Woodcote lease during its next board meeting June 25, Carey said, to consider possible quiet hours.

Death of 5-year-old investigated Coroner: Boy found locked inside vehicle BY TERRI SIMON TSIMON SHAWNEWSCOM 3HAW.EWS3ERVICE

PRINCETON – Princeton Police and the Bureau County coroner are investigating the death of a 5-year-old boy whose body was found in the family vehicle Sunday. According to Coroner Janice Wamhoff, Logan Jacobs had asked his father, Michael Jacobs, if

he could play with his tablet. The elder Jacobs was doing household chores and assumed his son was in his room playing with the device. A 10-year-old sister and two other girls also were at the home. Logan was found in the hot vehicle, which was parked in front of the home, about 2 hours later. The windows were up, the vehicle was locked, and the tablet was plugged into the charger, Wamhoff said.

The child was known to fall asleep easily, she added. He was pronounced dead at 6:05 p.m. at Perry Memorial Hospital in Princeton. An autopsy was done Monday, but the results were not in Thursday. An inquest may be scheduled. Logan also is survived by his mother, Melony Jacobs, of Walnut. Visit www.garlandfuneralhome.com to read his obituary.

ROCK ISLAND | THE SHELEY TRIAL

Testimony: Anything to ‘keep the peace’ Sheley’s ex-wife testifies in court BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com    EXT

ROCK ISLAND – Just after midnight on June 29, 2008, Holly and Nick Sheley were sitting on a bench near the Hennepin Canal in Rock Falls. Nick, who was drinking Hennesey and Red Bull, wanted his wife to sing to him. Holly was scared – covered in blood after sitting in the passenger seat of a pickup truck Nick was driving – so she sang. Three times she sang what he asked: “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star� and “Leaving on a Jet Plane.� He wanted to have sex. Holly laid down the flannel shirt he’d given her, and she complied. Anything to “keep the peace,� she said during her testimony Thursday morning – the eighth and final day of her now-exhusband’s murder trial in Rock Island County court. After they had sex, they got back into the truck, a dark-colored, newer model, Holly told the court. She noticed the time on the dash; it was almost 1 a.m. Prosecutors say that about 2 hours before that, Sheley had brutally murdered four people in a Rock Falls apartment.

A jury on Thursday convicted Sheley of those killings. Holly had once been in a relationship with one of those victims: Brock Branson. The two continued to date, even after Holly began seeing Nick. At some point, she said, the relationship did end. But it was a sore subject between her and Nick, Holly said, and she recalled one instance in particular when Branson was at her house, and Nick called her. The two men ended up on the phone together. It was a heated, angry conversation, she testified. Branson was cursing. Nick and Holly were married on May 10, 2008. About that time, Nick made her delete Branson as a friend on her MySpace page. Branson was killed less than 2 months later by a hammer that Nick Sheley swung. Before Nick picked up Holly at Jessine Mondragon’s house about 11:30 p.m. on June 28, she hadn’t seen him since he took off on June 23 after they’d had an argument about his drinking. That’s the day that Russell Reed, 93, of Sterling was killed. Nick has since been convicted of that murder. When Nick showed up at Mondragon’s house,

was Randall’s truck that Holly and Nick were in that night as they drove through the west end of Sterling, to Lyndon, and back to Rock Falls. Holly and Nick’s divorce was finalized this past December. At the close of her testimony Thursday, Karlin spoke quietly to Nick, who was shaking his head. Karlin said that at his client’s request, he declined to cross-examine Holly. Sheley was convicted of the murders of Branson, his girlfriend, Kilynna Blake, her son, Dayan, and Kenneth Ulve in their apartment around 11 p.m. on June 28. He already is serving two life sentences for the deaths of Randall and Reed, and is accused of killing an Arkansas couple, Jill and Tom Estes, in their hotel parking lot in Festus, Missouri. Sheley next will head to court there, where he could face the death penalty.

Nick got back into the truck, and the two drove to the parking lot of the Holiday Inn in Rock Falls, where he parked. He and Holly got out.

Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Edge Inn There couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been a better combination of talents, dreams and love than the combining of Richard and Julie Turk, owners of Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Edge Inn in Dixon. Both coming from food service backgrounds; her family were the original owners of Mamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chuckwagon, his family ran a resort in northern Wisconsin. Then they got together and put what they learned from their parents and grandparents to use at the Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Edge Inn for the past 26 years. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Edge Inn is one of Dixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best kept secrets with an atmosphere you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find anywhere else around the area. Seating on the edge of the Rock River at 2303 W. First St., the view alone makes for an amazing dining experience. All of the food is homemade, from soups to burgers, to hand-cut steaks. A tradition that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see anymore. They also offer daily specials and their famous â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pick 3â&#x20AC;? combo. The Turks grew up in the food service business, and now the tongs and spatulas are being handed over to the next generation; just like the old fashioned way. The Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Edge Inn has always had a good, local customer base with extremely competitive prices and food quality that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be beat.

GUEST COLUMN | FIXING ILLINOIS: LAST IN A SERIES

Corruption an enduring habit in Illinois Shady reputation hurts state in many ways; permanent anti-corruption campaign needed JAMES D. NOWLAN Toulon and J. THOMAS JOHNSON Springfield

Since Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; founding as a state, corruption has been so commonplace that it is called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Illinois Wayâ&#x20AC;? of doing government business. Our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation has been sullied and our economy harmed. It is not a matter to be passed off with a rueful chuckle. Early Illinois governor Ninian Edwards (1826-30) decried the common practice in his time of treating citizens with whisky to win their votes. Those who do so, Edwards declared, â&#x20AC;&#x153;establish a school of vice and depravity in our country tending to contaminate not only the present but succeeding generations.â&#x20AC;? By the 1890s, Illinois had become so corrupt

James D. Nowlan

J. Thomas Johnson

that honesty appeared eccentric. Streetcar magnate Charles T. Yerkes scandalized the state when he used big bribes to buy off both the Chicago city council and the state legislature in efforts to extend his traction franchises. IN 1909, SUPPORTERS of Congressman William J. Lorimer created a national sensation when they paid $100,000 in bribes of $2,500 to as many as 40 state lawmakers in Springfield to elect Lorimer to the U.S. Senate. At the time, the new Model T Ford cost $850.

Corruption during the Al Capone era of the 1920s was breathtaking in its magnitude. The chief of police in Chicago admitted that half his force of 6,000 cops was not only soliciting bribes but also actively pushing alcohol. The most distressing examples of public corruption came to light more recently, in the 1980-90s, as a result of Operations Greylord and Gambit, federal investigations into the Cook County court system. More than 120 court officials, including 18 judges, were convicted of systematic bribery to dismiss cases against even murderers and hit men. Between 1976 and the present, 1,828 persons in Illinois have been convicted of public corruption, more than in any states but New York and California.

EDITORIAL

And that represents only the illegal corruption. There have been too many cases of state legislators padding, even doubling, their pensions in return for just a monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work in government after retirement from the General Assembly. Legal yet reprehensible. Illinois consistently ranks among the states perceived to be most corrupt. In 2012, we took a national survey and found that one in three respondents named Illinois, unprompted, as one of the most corrupt states in the nation. Other Midwestern states were rarely so named, causing Illinois to stick out. And perceptions hurt. A survey we conducted of 70 economic development professionals in Illinois found that three in four of them believed that perceptions of corruption had a negative impact on their business and job recruiting. We believe that, over the centuries, a culture of corruption had devel-

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;

oped insidiously among too many Illinois residents. Taking advantage of government is seen as the way things are done.

We propose that the state of Illinois embark on a permanent campaign to make corruption uncool. Governors would take the lead. Consciousnessraising about integrity would take many forms. ...

CULTURE CAN BE changed. Take, for examples, smoking and drinking and driving. Both were somewhat cool when we were young, but now are frowned upon by society. We propose that the state of Illinois embark on a permanent campaign to make corruption uncool. Governors would take the lead. Consciousness-raising about integrity would take many forms, including: Workshops on ethics would be held for all newly elected local and state officials. Increased discussion of ethics would take place in social science classes in our schools, and Guides to ethical decision-making would be distributed widely among the public. Illinois must begin now to transform The Illi-

hen you fail to plan, you are planning to fail, so the saying goes. People associated with Dixon Public Schools are well aware of the concept. A Strategic Planning Committee has been involved in preliminary work, so that a long-term plan can be created to deal with looming problems. Residents and district staff have met periodically since last year to study the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s buildings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one of which, Lincoln Elementary School, will be closed soon. Their main finding? Current buildings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dixon High, Reagan Middle, and Washington, Jefferson and Madison Elementary â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are inad-

What we think We wish the Dixon School Board good luck in its selection of a consultant to guide the next phase of strategic planning. equate for 21st-century learning. Safety and security were deemed a problem, along with athletic and performing arts facilities, and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. With the advice of the Strategic Planning Committee, the Dixon School

Board decided to pursue more planning. District officials have been on the lookout for potential strategic planning consultants to further guide the process. A vote by the school board on a preferred consultant is likely in June. And then, the planning process will continue. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t emphasize enough the importance of such planning for the school districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future. We wish the school board good luck in selecting a consultant. We encourage the community to be involved to ensure that the final plan represents the will of the people. By planning to succeed, the community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and its students â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will be far better off.

Difficult times for the world; seek wisdom GRANT â&#x20AC;&#x153;JACKâ&#x20AC;? C. YOUNG Lanark

I used to read selected portions of the Dixon Evening Telegraph when I was young and before I joined our U.S. Navy in July 1940. Thereafter, for the next 30 years, I maintained my home of record as RFD 4, Dixon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; saw the Telegraph only infrequently when I was home on leave. Beginning with World War II, I served through three of our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wars, combat in the first two, and staff/shore positions through the third one. I then took the

option, on July 1, 1970, to retire and return to my first love â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the farm, this one near Lanark. So, life in semi-retirement on the farm has been good. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able, as an observer and voter, to participate in the ebb and flow of politics in our county, state and nation; and, further, to participate in farming our land and other activities associated with education, economics and travel. These are parlous times throughout our world. In our nation, there are multiple omens â&#x20AC;&#x201C; massive flooding, equally massive forest and prairie fires, and rampant tornadoes; senseless murders and mayhem directed against helpless children in schools, office workers, factory situations

and various military organizations. Great numbers of our population tend to ignore or nay-say the tenets that God laid out in his easily understood Ten Commandments, intended to guide humanity (his experiment in living creatures) into proper channels for a good life. Have the lessons visited on Earth in the time of Noah been forgotten or disbelieved completely? We must pray diligently for future generations of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s human beings as well as for the lesser animals that cohabit our planet. I assume there are people all over our world who have thoughts similar to mine. I hope so, and that wisdom and understand-

Quinn pension stance violates the constitution DAVE FOX Tampico

Doug Finkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column on May 21 shed light on state officialsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; line of thought that propels their pension reform law proposals. Quoting Finke, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The response from the state, though, says the extraordinary nature of the problem allows the state to modify those contracts [between the state and public employees],

including those established under the pension-protection clause of the Illinois Constitution.â&#x20AC;? As a state retiree who served the taxpayers (of which I am one) for more than a quarter century with the guarantees, both under contract and under the state constitution, that I would receive certain compensations from the state upon my retirement, I am still totally incredulous that our governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way of thinking could even exist. This line of thought in the private sector would never hold water in the courts, even for a second. How in the world could I, as an individual, decide that my finances are so tight, after Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been totally irresponsible with

my spending for the past 20 years, that I would no longer honor my contractual financial obligations to any of my creditors? Let me ignore the terms of all my debts and continue spending irresponsibly and frivolously and bring financial damage to those I actually am obligated to. Moronic, to say the least, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the governor is trying to do. Additionally, he is violating the very constitution that he swore to uphold. This, in itself, speaks of his character. Quinn cheerleaders need to examine â&#x20AC;&#x201C; objectively â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the facts at hand, instead of rushing to his rally to support things that can bring further ruin to the state.

Science earns spotlight at Putnam New center means more interactive displays BY ANDREA MILLS amills@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5575

DAVENPORT, Iowa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Those who like a museum experience that involves more than gazing at a display will have no complaints at Putnam Museum.

BY JAMES M. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;NEILL MCT News Service

Monarchs migrate south each fall to fir forests in the mountains of central Mexico, where they spend the winter. In the spring, they migrate north and spread throughout the United States. The generation that spends the winter in Mexico can make it back north as far as Texas, and lay its eggs on milkweed plants. Within four days, the eggs hatch into yellowwhite-and-black-striped caterpillars, which eat the host plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaves. After two weeks, the caterpillar attaches to the underside of a branch or leaf and becomes a chrysalis. Ten days later, after metamorphosis, the full-grown monarch emerges and continues the migration north. Monarchs will go through four generations of butterflies during the spring and summer migration process. But several factors have disrupted the traditional migration and reduced

the monarch numbers, Glassberg said. There has long been illegal logging in the monarch wintering grounds, and some extreme weather â&#x20AC;&#x201C; droughts in Texas, extreme cold elsewhere â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have also hit hard in recent years. But perhaps the most significant factor has been the loss of milkweed plants as large-scale commercialized farms have used herbicide around fields. The herbicide kills weeds around the farmland â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including wildflowers and milkweed. Without milkweed, the

monarchs have no place to lay eggs, and their caterpillars have no food source. In addition, during the migration season, monarchs rely on milkweed and other wildflowers for the nectar they turn into sugars to help fuel their journey. Herbicides have also knocked out swaths of wildflowers, cutting the monarchsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; nectar supply, Glassberg said. The common milkweed, which grows in empty lots and along roads and fields, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is not very attractive â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it grows to three feet

and looks very weedy and has big leaves. It tends to get cut down,â&#x20AC;? said Janice Mahr, who grows perennials for Metropolitan Plant and Flower Exchange in Fort Lee and Paramus. Most nurseries carry two types of milkweed that have been cultivated to look better in gardens, she said. The cultivated versions are asclepias tuberose, or butterfly weed, which has round masses of tiny bright orange flowers, and asclepias incarnata, or swamp milkweed, which comes with white or pink flowers.

Daughter-in-law needs to give tanning beds a rest Dear Abby: I love my daughter-in-law, and I am afraid she is harming herself because of her addiction to tanning. Her boys are in high school and cannot remember their mother without a really dark tan. One son told his classmates in grade school that his mother was African-American when they were doing African-American studies. (Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Caucasian.) My son says he cannot convince her to â&#x20AC;&#x153;lighten upâ&#x20AC;? a bit. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do. I am ... So Concerned For Her in Illinois

Dear So Concerned: You are right to be concerned for your daughter-in-law. For years, dermatologists have cautioned the public about the dangers of

exposure to the sun. With the invention of tanning beds, the rates of melanoma among young people have soared. For anyone who isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aware, melanoma is an aggressive type of skin cancer that can be fatal. Tanning can be addictive, and you should urge your daughter-in-law to discuss this with a dermatologist. Because tanning also causes premature aging of the skin, she should explore â&#x20AC;&#x153;sunless tanning,â&#x20AC;? which is much safer. Dear Abby: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 18. My

boyfriend, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Matt,â&#x20AC;? and I have been together for a year and a half, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m leaving for college this fall. Matt will be attending community college nearby. I have been told that the next 4 years are the best years of life, and I want to live them to the fullest. In order to do that, I want to be single so I can have a good time and be a little reckless without worrying about him. I love Matt and would one day like to marry him, but since heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only my third boyfriend, I want to

Sheley chooses not to testify GUILTY

CONTINUED FROM A1

It is the third time Sheley has been found guilty of murder in what prosecutors say was a drug- and alcohol-induced killing spree that resulted in eight deaths in late June 2008. After the state rested its case Thursday, defense attorney Jeremy Karlin called no witnesses. And, as in his previous trials, Sheley did not testify in his own defense, which is his right. Sheley, 34, is also accused of killing an Arkansas couple in Festus, Missouri, and is already serving two life sentences for murder in the death of Ronald Randall in Galesburg and the killing of Russell Reed, 93, in Sterling. Evidence showed Sheley had been all over the northwestern corner of the state on the day he killed the four people in Rock Falls. His morning began in Rock Island, where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d smashed a brick through someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car window and then fell asleep in the back seat. He was awakened by the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owner and chased out of it, over a hill and across the street, where he broke into a business, Illinois Oil Products, stole a pair of shorts and a work shirt with â&#x20AC;&#x153;A.J.â&#x20AC;? on the breast, and left his jeans on a desk. That was how Assistant Attorney General Steve Nate began his hour-long closing statement at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, the eighth day of Sheleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nearly 6 years ago, events were set in motion right here in Rock Island that led to the brutal murder of four innocent people,â&#x20AC;? Nate said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By midnight of the 28th, Kilynna Blake, Dayan Blake, Brock Branson, and Kenneth Ulve were all dead, their heads crushed by repeated blows.

chance to live this life and fulfill their dreams.â&#x20AC;? As the jury exited the room after delivering their verdict, the victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; families all stood, tearfully embracing and breathing sighs of relief. When Sheley was led out of the room, a cry erupted from Jodi Fitzgerald, Bransonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope you rot in hell, Nick Sheley!â&#x20AC;? she said. Outside the courtroom, victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; family members embraced, crossing family lines to comfort and congratulate one another on finally getting some closure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all become so close,â&#x20AC;? Fitzgerald says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through this whole situation, we have this great bond. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve connected through text messages, Facebook; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been absolutely amazing.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closure, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really not, since itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been so long,â&#x20AC;? Connie Branson, Brockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother said. Dallas Branson, Brockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, embraced Assistant Attorney General Bill Elward outside the courtroom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a good man,â&#x20AC;? Elward said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a good man. Brock would be proud of you.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel that justice was finally served,â&#x20AC;? Whiteside County Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Attorney Trish Joyce said, standing outside of the Rock Island County Justice Center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although it was delayed, it has finally arrived. I feel such a sense of relieve for the Branson, Blake and Ulve family members and also the ones that have gone before them, such as the Reed family, the Randall family, and soon to come, the Estesesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; family.â&#x20AC;? Sheley has now been convicted of six of the eight murders prosecutors originally accused him of. He will next head to court in Missouri for the deaths of the Estes couple.

Rockets turn errors into runs as Ward Ks 15 in win BY DAN WOESSNER DWOESSNER SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

ROCK FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The final image of Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3A Rock Falls Regional semifinal between the host Rockets and Mendota was of shortstop Chelsi Blair. The junior ranged to her left on a hard hit by Mallary Phalen, scooped the ball off one bounce, and fired Phalen out at first. It was a slick play, and one of only a few the Rocketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense had to make because of a dominating performance by Michaela Ward in a 5-0 victory. The Rockets advance to play Sterling in the regional championship game at 1 p.m. Saturday. It is the second year in a row that the two teams have met for a regional title. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing about it is that when we play each other, it is always good softball,â&#x20AC;? Rock Falls coach Kris Nunez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes it fun. We hope to be on the winning end this time, but it always ends up being a wellplayed game in front of a big crowd.â&#x20AC;? Sterling won last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regional game 2-0. The Warriors also won the lone meeting this year, 1-0. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing we have to do is focus on hitting,â&#x20AC;? Ward said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been slumping a little bit, but if we come out and hit, we believe we can do it.â&#x20AC;? If Ward pitches Saturday like she did against Mendota, the Warriors will be hard-pressed to score. The Rock Falls junior â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who set the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single season strikeout record this season â&#x20AC;&#x201C; fanned 15 Trojan batters. She struck out the side in the third, fourth and sixth innings, and had a streak of seven Ks that stretched from the end of the second to the start of fifth. She allowed two hits, one a single during the first inning that was played Wednesday. After a scoreless first inning, the

Ward said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With starting and then having the long delay, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to come out flat and give them a chance.â&#x20AC;? The other hit was a double by Phalen to start the fifth. Phalen was later tagged out at the plate on a failed suicide-squeeze attempt. The Rockets used some timely hitting and Mendota defensive miscues to get on the scoreboard against Mendota pitcher Taylor Browder. Julie Dodd started the second with a single, and her courtesy runner Madason Shawn was moved to second on a bunt by

Baylie Janssen. Jenny Lawson then grounded to short. Brooke Stallings fielded the ball and threw Lawson out as Shawn broke for third. The throw back across the diamond was high and sailed out of play. Kaylyn Booker added an RBI single later in the inning to put Rock Falls up 2-0. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought Taylor pitched well enough today, but her defense let her down a bit,â&#x20AC;? Mendota coach Joel Perez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make mistakes against a team like this â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and with a pitcher throwing like Ward â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and have a much of a chance.â&#x20AC;? The Rockets scored two more runs in the third on a groundout by Dodd and a flyout by Janssen, and tacked on another unearned run in the fourth. In all, Mendota had five errors, while the Rockets did not commit any. And then it came to the end, with Blairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sparkling play at short. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She can do some amazing things out there,â&#x20AC;? Nunez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make a mistake, but sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always one of the players who wants to take a few more ground balls in practice.â&#x20AC;?

3A STERLING REGIONAL | ROCK FALLS 4, STERLING 2

Signs of maturity for Rockets Rock Falls overcomes error-filled first inning to beat Sterling BY PATRICK PETROSKY ppetrosky@saukvalley.com   EXT

STERLING â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Rock Falls overcame an error-filled first inning to capture a 4-2 win over rival Sterling in a 3A Sterling Regional semifinal game Thursday night. Top-seeded Rock Falls had a rough top half of the first defensively. Sterling (9-19-1) took advantage of two errors committed by Rockets infielders to grab a 1-0 lead after the first. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were putting the bat on the ball, and hitting against a tough pitcher in [Austin] Donoho,â&#x20AC;? Sterling senior Zach Rehmert said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you put the ball in play, good things are going to happen. We let them make their own mistakes, and took advantage to take an early lead in the first.â&#x20AC;? It took an inning before the Rockets (22-10) responded, but a combination of small ball and power took the lead away from the Golden Warriors for good. Singles from Dallas Jones and Quinton Matznick started things off. Sophomore Noah Junis bunted them to second and third, but it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have mattered, as senior Dustin Huycke batted them in with a line drive into the right-center Michael Krabbenhoeft/mkrabbenhoeft@saukvalley.com gap.

Huycke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just came up to bat, and swung pretty hard to get a piece of it.â&#x20AC;? Sterling cut the deficit to 3-2 in the fifth inning behind a string of singles and a passed ball. Rehmert singled to start the inning, was bunted to second by Frankie Perino, and advanced to third on a passed ball. Sophomore Turner Morse then batted him in on a single. The Rockets were quick to answer, scoring in the bottom of the fifth when Trace Hippenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s line drive to left field was dropped, allowing Jacob Mammosser to score from third base. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rock Falls is always a sound, fundamental team,â&#x20AC;? Sterling coach Nick Pepper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got some bounces and took advantage of them. We score a run, and we talked about not

letting them answer right back and take away our momentum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that either time we scored. I think we still played well, and it was a tough way to lose, but we were playing a lot better baseball at the end of the year than what we were in the beginning of the year.â&#x20AC;? Donoho picked up the win for Rock Falls. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow a hit and gave up one unearned run with a walk and two strikeouts in three innings. Sophomore James McFadden got the save, as he picked up the rest of the game for the Rockets, giving up one run and four hits, while striking out three and walking two. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any win at this point is a good win,â&#x20AC;? Rock Falls coach Donnie Chappell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any time you play Sterling, it adds a little something extra to the game that you really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want in the postseason. I was really proud of them for overcoming those errors. First half of the season, that would have turned into seven or eight runs. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve grown up a lot, and hopefully we continue to do that.â&#x20AC;? Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Turner Morse took the loss, going two innings and allowing three runs and four hits. He struck out one, and walked two. Junior Rafael Escalante pitched four innings in relief and allowed one run and one hit, with a strikeout and a walk.

2A MORRISON SECTIONAL | BYRON 8, ERIE-PROPHETSTOWN 1

Panther pickoffs stop Tigers temporarily Erie-Prophetstown pitchers keep close to favored Byron, but offense silenced in loss BY PATRICK MASON pmason@saukvalley.com    EXT

Star of the game: Nate 0ETERSON "YRON )0  + "" 2 Key performers: Jack &LEEGER "YRON 2") /WEN-C#ONNELL % 0  FOR  DOUBLE

MORRISON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Even though he can seem far away from the action, Erie-Prophetstown center fielder Kallen Jepson knows that he has to be ready each time one of his pitchers is holding the baseball. The Panthers, as they have done all season, were aggressive in trying to pick off opposing baserunners, and Byron found out quickly not to wander too far off the base. In all, Panthers pitching picked off three Byron baserunners, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to keep the Tigers from advancing in the 2A Morrison Sectional with an 8-1 win over the Panthers in the semifinal game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have some play calls, so I know when to keep a lookout for the pickoffs,â&#x20AC;? said Jepson, who has to charge in from the outfield in order to back up errant throws. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because I pitch, too, I can tell when a good situation for one is,â&#x20AC;? he continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so I am always looking for that. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned to always be ready.â&#x20AC;? What he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily ready for, however, was when coach Jason Orman emerged from the dugout and walked to the mound for a pitching change in the sixth inning, and pointed out to center field for Jepson. Jepson is the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth pitcher in the rotation, and took the ball with the simple hope to slow down the Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense, something that four others before him tried to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just came in and tried

to throw strikes,â&#x20AC;? Jepson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all I really thought about.â&#x20AC;? The Panthers (14-13) used five pitchers in the game, with starter Ethan Howard taking the loss. He pitched two full innings and allowed one earned run, before being pulled in the third in favor of Jordan Chandler. Howard labored through his two innings after getting into deep counts with batters, on top of three walks. He threw 49 pitches before he was pulled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would have liked [Howard] to be able to get a little deeper into the game,â&#x20AC;? Orman said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but it happens sometimes. He struggled a bit with his control.â&#x20AC;? Luckily, just about every pitcher was available due to an extra day off after heavy rain postponed the game, originally scheduled for Wednesday, to Thursday. So Orman trotted out to the mound at the first sign of trouble in order to keep the game close. Orman told his players before the game, that they would need to score about five runs to be able to hang with the Tigers (33-5). E-P had six hits in the game, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t string together more than one in an inning until the seventh. Koby Kuhnen, pinchhitting for Dalton Patton, batted in the Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lone run in the top half of the seventh with a

He struck out the side in the first, before allowing a leadoff double to Owen McConnell in the second.

While the lack of offense was glaring, the five pitchers kept the Panthers in the game. E-P trailed 3-0 through four innings, before a four-run fifth put the game out of reach, and took a mental toll. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a little tough,â&#x20AC;? said Jepson, who finRefer a ished 1-for-3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were friend and close, and thinking we receive a were one big inning away, FREE GIFT and when Byron got that from Razor! inning, it took a little bit out of us.â&#x20AC;?

Is this finesse really pointless?

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Michio Kaku, a professor of theoretical physics, made this valid point: “It’s pointless to have a nice clean desk, because it means you’re not doing anything.” Who could disagree with that? There are some plays that seem pointless, but upon closer inspection prove that you are doing something vital. In this deal, the “pointless” play occurs at trick one. South is in four hearts. West leads the spade two. After declarer plays low from the dummy, why does it make a difference whether East plays his 10 or king? Nowadays many Wests would have made a takeout double over one heart. I am still not convinced it is a good

idea with a relatively weak 4-3-3-3. South’s jump to four hearts was a slight overbid with such a balanced hand, but whenever you smell a game, bid that game.

If East plays the spade king at trick one, it does not cost the defense a spade trick, but declarer can then make his contract. He wins with his ace and drives out the heart ace. West takes his ace and cashes the spade queen, but even if he leads another spade, South ruffs in the dummy, plays off his two top clubs, draws trumps ending on the board, and runs the clubs. Now let East “finesse against his partner” by putting in the spade 10 at trick one. Then West, when he gets in with his heart ace, can lead another low spade. East can take the trick and shift to a diamond, giving the defenders one spade, one heart and two diamonds. The finesse against partner retains an entry card for East. © 2014 UFS

Favorites fare well in Paris Nadal, Murray among 2nd-round winners BY JEROME PUGMIRE AP Sports Writer

President Barack Obama applauds Victoria Bellucci, a 2014 graduate of Huntingtown High School in Huntingtown, Md., who suffered five concussions playing soccer, during a White House summit Thursday discussing head injuries in youth sports.

Taking concussion discussion to D.C. Obama holds White House summit about making youth sports safer BY DARLENE SUPERVILLE Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Saying he wants kids to play sports but play safely, President Barack Obama called Thursday for more and better research into the effects and treatment of concussions in youth athletes. The issue is one of growing concern for parents who spend weekends driving their kids from one game to another. But without direct authority over youth sports leagues, Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to address the issue meaningfully is limited to calling for research and trying to jumpstart a national conversation to teach parents, coaches and young athletes about concussions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the goal of a summit he hosted at the White House. He also said a new attitude is needed where players who have been hit donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel wimpy for sitting out a game or two. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to change a culture that says you suck it up,â&#x20AC;? Obama said, adding that he probably suffered mild concussions as a young football player. He noted that concussions are also an issue in soccer, hockey, lacrosse, and other contact sports. The event brought together representatives of professional and college sports associations, coaches, parents, young athletes, doctors, and others. The president was introduced by Victoria Bellucci, a high school graduate from Huntingtown, Maryland, who suffered five concussions during her high school and club soccer career. Bellucci said her injuries made it hard to focus on her assignments. She eventually turned down a full scholarship to play soccer at Towson University in Maryland, and will instead attend Flagler College in Florida in the fall, the White House said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Concussions have drastically altered my life,â&#x20AC;? she said. Obama, an avid sports fan whose two daughters are active in sports, also

Nearly 250,000 kids and young adults visit hospital emergency rooms each year with brain injuries caused by sports or other recreational activity, Obama said. He noted that the figure excludes those who see a family doctor or seek no treatment. Obama previously had waded into the debate over concussions, saying last year that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to think â&#x20AC;&#x153;long and hardâ&#x20AC;? about allowing a son to play football because of the risk of head injury. Panelists who discussed the issue after Obama spoke agreed that information and education are important. Otherwise, parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fears about onfield safety could lead them to pull their kids from team sports, an outcome the panelists agreed would be harmful for young people because of the benefits of participation in athletics.

Bull Fighter Al Says...

PARIS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Eight-time champion Rafael Nadal improved his French Open record to 61-1 after beating big-hitting Dominic Thiem of Austria 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 on Thursday. The Spaniardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only defeat at Roland Garros was in the fourth round against Robin Soderling 5 years ago. He was never in danger of losing this time, but was occasionally on the back foot as Thiem went for his shots throughout the match and broke the top-seeded Nadalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s serve twice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a dangerous match, dangerous opponent today,â&#x20AC;? Nadal said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am happy with the way I resisted. When I had to play long points, I did well. When I had to attack and move him, I think I did well.â&#x20AC;?

Nadal, who sealed the victory on his second match point, next faces either Leonardo Mayer of Argentina, who beat Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Teymuraz Gabashvili 6-2, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4. Fifth-seeded David Ferrer of Spain, last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s runner-up to Nadal; Britonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Andy Murray, seeded seventh; and No. 12 Richard Gasquet of France also advanced to the third round in straight sets. In the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draw, fourthseeded Simona Halep of Romania beat Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heather Watson 6-2, 6-4; No. 5 Petra Kvitova won 6-4, 6-4 against Marina Erakovic; No. 6 Jelena Jankovic won 7-5, 6-0 against Japanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kurumi Nara; and No. 10 Sara Errani of Italy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the 2012 runner-up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; won 6-2, 6-4 against Germanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dinah Pfizenmaier.

Hardware hunters

Newman in good position for trophy after prelims BY BRIAN WEIDMAN bweidman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5551

CHARLESTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The program for the boys state track and field meet features a picture of 2013 Newman graduate Nick Rude, flexing his muscles after winning a relay a year ago. Rude, a top sprinter, led those Comets to a 1A team state title. His younger brother, Brady, is doing his best to make sure Newman is in the thick of things again when team hardware is passed out Saturday afternoon. Brady Rude qualified for the finals in three individual events, and anchored a relay team in another, to lead the Comets to a strong first-day performance at the 1A state track and field meet. Newman is in the finals in seven events (five individual, two relays), tying it with Teutopolis and Tuscola for second-most in the field. Aurora Christian, with eight, has the most. Leading the way for the Comets was Brady Rude, who qualified in the 100 (11.34 seconds), 200 (22.38) and long jump (21 feet, 5 1/2 inches). Those performances would win most meets in the Sauk Valley. At state, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the pack, but he likes his position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a challenge,â&#x20AC;? Rude said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but kind of cool being the underdog. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just trying to establish myself with those guys who are running the top times in the state. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just trying to get better, and be where they are by the time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a junior and a senior.â&#x20AC;? Nolan McGinn went 42-6 3/4 in the triple jump, and currently stands eighth among 12 finalists. In the 110 high hurdles, Regan Todhunter ran a personal-best time of 15.33 to earn a

spot in the finals. He sliced .17 of a second off his previous best. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just think I like competing at bigger meets,â&#x20AC;? Todhunter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big meets always drive me a little bit harder than usual, and having a good start always helps, too.â&#x20AC;? The 800 relay team of Micah Trancoso,

McGinn, Ethan Nash and Rude won their heat with a time of 1:30.92. It was a seasonbest by .27 of a second. The 3,200 team of Bryson Reyes, Quincy Coomes, Drew Rosengren and Trancoso earned the 12th â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and final â&#x20AC;&#x201C; qualifying spot with a time of 8:16.77.

THURSDAYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S SCOREBOARD

NHL | WESTERN CONFERENCE FINALS

Hold the handshakes C

HICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a funny thing about handshakes. Some people love them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sign of respect, they say. Some people hate them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big festival of germs, they say. Both sides make good points. But it would have been pretty tough to find anyone within a hundred hockey rinks of the United Center who wanted to watch a handshake before they went to bed Wednesday. A handshake would have represented the end of the Blackhawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; season. A handshake would have meant some other team in some other city would hoist Lord Stanleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cup. The handshake didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen. Not on Wednesday, at least. Not after 37-year-old Michal Handzus rushed toward the net and calmly flipped a backhanded shot past Jonathan Quick, saving the Hawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; season. The goal at 2:04 of double overtime lifted the Hawks to a 5-4 win against the Los Angeles Kings and forced Game 6 today at Staples Center. Handzus?!? Yes, Handzus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a warrior,â&#x20AC;? Hawks forward Patrick Kane said with a smile during a postgame interview from the bench. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He plays in huge moments. Huge goal.â&#x20AC;? Huge wow. Personally, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a fan of handshakes. Firm grip, look â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em in the eye, as my dad likes to say. But if handshakes arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t your preference, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine. Fist bumps

TOMMUSICK .ORTHWEST (ERALDSPORTS REPORTER 2EACHHIM ATTMUSICK SHAWMEDIA COM

can be fun. Bowing toward someone is almost as old as dinosaurs, maybe. Head nods can make you feel good. Anyway, the Hawks deserve a handshake or a fist bump or whatever you prefer. Because they could have quit after a 3-1 lead in Game 5 somehow turned into a 4-3 deficit late in the second period. They could have stopped battling, figuring that two championships in the previous four seasons would help get them through the summer. Instead, the Hawks pressed on like the champs that they are. With the score even at 4 and shots on goal at 44 apiece, Handzus whacked at shot No. 45 and became the hero. Quick slumped to his stomach as fans leaped to their feet. Suddenly, the Hawks are one win away from forcing a winner-take-all Game 7. On home ice. For the chance to go â&#x20AC;&#x201C; again â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to the Stanley Cup Final. Am I getting ahead of myself? Yes. Am I about to doubt the Hawks after their latest crazy win? No way. As the goal horn blared, Kane and teammate Nick

Leddy were the first to greet Handzus. Leddy patted him on the head with his glove. A slew of Hawks players were on the way, storming over the bench to mob their eldest teammate. No handshakes. Only hugs and glove bumps and head pats. As the celebration lingered, and Kings players retreated, and fans happily tossed red towels onto the ice, Hawks captain Jonathan Toews skated toward his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bench and parked right in front of its swinging door. He waited for his teammates to arrive, and soon they did. Johnny Oduya: High five from Toews. Ben Smith: High five from Toews. Kane: High five from Toews. It kept going, high five after high five, until the only player remaining on the ice besides Toews was Handzus. He was giving a live interview on national TV, which is part of what comes with being a double-overtime hero. As he spoke, the crowd chanted â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zuuuus.â&#x20AC;? Inside of the locker room after the game, Hawks players said they never entertained doubts, despite a thirdperiod deficit that put their season on the brink of elimination. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t out of it,â&#x20AC;? Hawks defenseman Duncan Keith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was right there.â&#x20AC;? The Hawks seized it. Regardless of how this series ends, they deserve our respect. Firm grip. Look â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em in the eye.

Haves and Habs not in NY Rangers beat Canadiens, move on to finals "Y4HE!SSOCIATED0RESS

Dominic Moore scored in the second period, Henrik Lundqvist bounced back from his worst performance in the playoffs, and the New York Rangers beat the Montreal Canadiens 1-0 on Thursday night to advance to the Stanley Cup finals. The Rangers are in the championship round for the first time since winning it all in 1994. Lundqvist and the Rangers shook off a 7-4 road loss Tuesday night, and took out the Canadiens on home ice. Lundqvist needed to make only 18 saves in his teamrecord tying ninth postseason shutout. He was pulled after allowing four goals in less than two periods Tuesday. Montrealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dustin Tokarski, who replaced injured No. 1 goalie Carey Price after Game 1, was solid in making 31 saves.

Astrograph Offer your time Friday, May 30, 2014 The coming year will be a time of advancement. Your moneymaking ideas are sound, but following the proper channels will be necessary. Stick to a strict budget, and your situation will continue to improve, allowing you greater freedom to develop an idea or interest that can add to your income. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone will make you feel overly sensitive today. Don’t waste time feeling sorry for yourself, when you should be looking for something to do that enriches your life and leads to new acquaintances. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don’t fall prey to a fast-talking stranger. Keep your eye on your money and refuse any offers that seem too good to be true. Caution is the name of the game. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Offer your time to a cause that you feel passionate about. You can make life easier for others with a little effort. Your own problems will seem relatively small. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Delegate your responsibilities. If you don’t put in an honest effort,

you will not honor a commitment. This will cause problems with an authority figure that will compromise your position. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- A romantic encounter is in the stars. Don’t question what’s being offered, just plan to enjoy the moment and see where it leads. Social functions will offer an interesting alternative. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Stick to your own affairs today. You will have to refrain from commenting on the way others do things. A friendship may be jeopardized if you are too opinionated. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Someone close to you will show interest in your personal life. This can lead to an offer of help that will allow you greater freedom to follow interesting pursuits. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t take part in gossip. Protect your reputation regardless of what others do. Stay out of the spotlight and work diligently to live up to your responsibilities. Actions speak louder than words.

PUZZLE ENTHUSIASTS: Get more puzzles in AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You are probably in need of a little pampering. A relaxing day at the spa or an energetic session at the gym will prepare you for a romantic evening. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You will feel better about yourself if you get rid of a bad habit. Self-improvement will help you shed negativity, making way for a confident, goal-oriented mindset. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Love and laughter will surround you. Now is a good time to spice up your romantic life. Socializing or an intimate tete-a-tete will enhance your existence. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your schedule appears to be hectic, which will lead to a costly error if you don’t slow down and think matters through carefully. Ask for help if you feel overwhelmed.
