SERVING DIXON AND THE SURROUNDING AREA SINCE 1851

LEE COUNTY COURT | SHAKEN BABY CASE

Guilty plea in George case Dixon man sentenced to 18 years in prison BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5521

DIXON – A Dixon man who once faced a murder charge has received an 18-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to one count of

aggravated battery of a child in the death of his infant daughter. Charles T. George, 36, was arrested in September 2010. Police said he had slammed his daughter, Tamari, onto the floor, fracturing her skull and causing severe brain injury, rib fractures and retinal detachments. She died later at a Rockford hospital. Three counts of aggravated battery to a child and one count of

aggravated domestic battery were dismissed in exchange for his plea, and he was given credit for time served, which is 3 years, 8 months and 4 days. He will have 3 years of mandatory supervision and must register as a violent offender against youth for 10 years after his release. George entered his plea just before 3 p.m. Tuesday, Lee County State’s Attorney Anna Sacco-Miller

said. He had been scheduled to go to trial June 16. Until recently, George also faced a charge of first-degree murder, but it was dropped because of “speedy trial” rules. Because the murder charge was added more than 120 days after his original demand for a speedy trial, the state wasn’t allowed to prosecute that more serious charge.

Dixon students attend classes at building for final time BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5529

DIXON – Midday Wednesday, there were cars lining the street outside Lincoln Elementary School, much like any other day during the school year. But this was for the last time. In December, the Dixon School Board voted to close the building, in an effort to address a budget deficit. Next year, second- and third-grade students will attend Jefferson Elementary School, part of the district’s reshuffling to account for the closed building. Fourth- and fifth-grade students will be housed at the reopened Madison Elementary School, which is connected to Reagan Middle School; and pre-kindergarten and early childhood programs at Reagan will transfer to Washington Elementary School, which will still house kindergarteners and first-graders.

DIXON – Two felony charges have been dropped against a former Dixon attorney who in 2012 pleaded guilty to stealing money from a former client. A grand jury in November had indicted Al Henry Williams, 66, on two felony counts of theft. He was accused of not paying the funeral bills for Arthur Elmer Black, a retired blacksmith, after the administrator for Black’s estate gave him $6,591 to do so. The charges Al Henry were dropped Williams Tuesday. Lee County State’s Attorney Anna Sacco-Miller was unavailable for comment. Williams previously pleaded guilty to financially exploiting a former client, Dorothy Gaul, and was sentenced to 6 months of conditional discharge and ordered to pay $15,992 in restitution to her estate. Gaul, then 97 and living in a nursing home, hired Williams in August 2008 to handle her financial assets, which included her home in Dixon and more than $113,000 in checking and savings accounts. Williams then opened a joint checking account with Gaul, which he used to pay her expenses. Between December 2008 and August 2009, he wrote 25 checks to himself, totaling $95,000. He deposited 19 of them, totaling $92,800, into three bank accounts, then used the money for his own business and personal expenses. After pleading guilty, Williams agreed to let the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission disbar him. He can no longer practice law in Illinois.

School children line up for the buses Wednesday at Lincoln Elementary School in Dixon.

No plans yet for school RESHUFFLE

Trista Pitman, of Dixon, was among the parents waiting outside the school for dismissal on Wednesday. She said she trusts the district’s administration and teachers to make the reorganization work. “It’s sad,� Pitman said of the building’s closure. “I went to Lincoln School when I was a kid. I understand why they’re doing it, though.� Teachers and staff at Lincoln have done what they could these last few weeks to start packing, while also keeping activity as normal as possible for the students, Principal Dan Rick said. By Wednesday afternoon, the inside of the school looked more like the house of a family packing up to move. There were boxes stacked in the hallways and in classrooms, piles of books on tables, and empty boxes waiting to be filled with more supplies. Candace Buikema, a second-grade teacher, was packing up her firstfloor classroom and had a pile of boxes to be left for the district to move, as well as piles to take herself. She’s already taken photos of her new classroom in Jefferson and is planning how she will arrange the room, trying to find a place for all of her supplies and the additional items – extra books, a stereo and a

Open Sesame Child Care Center will be moving into Lincoln for its summer program, Superintendent Michael Juenger said, because of work being done at Reagan. “The board is committed to making sure the building doesn’t become an eyesore to the city and the neighborhood and the district,� he said, adding that the school board doesn’t have any firm plans at this point. In addition to the reshuffling of grades, there is regular maintenance work that needs to be done to all the

GRAND DETOUR – This year, Rosalind “Roz� Wakem turns 77. After being diagnosed with terminal cancer last year, she wasn’t sure she’d make it that far. She’s decided to mark the occasion with an afternoon of music Saturday at the little historic St. Peter’s Church, 8225 S. Main Street, in Grand Detour. The Joel Ross Trio will be coming down from Rockford for the occasion, performing songs from the ‘20s, ‘30s, and ‘40s.

“It’s tasteful,� Wakem said. “It’s very good music. It’s romantic music, for the most part – danceable and romantic.� The event is open to the community and begins at 4 p.m. “This started out as something where I was going to invite a few people, and then it turned out that they were going to bring some people,� Wakem said. And then one of her friends suggested the idea that it would be a lovely thing for the community to enjoy as well. Wakem agreed. “I know I will enjoy the music,� she said.

Police: Woman faked cancer for funds 31-year-old jailed on $100,000 bond ST. LOUIS (AP) – An Illinois woman was charged Wednesday with bilking thousands of dollars in donations from hundreds of people she duped for months into believing she had terminal cancer, drawing scorn from an investigator who labeled the alleged global scheme “evil.� Alissa Jackson, 31, pleaded not guilty Wednesday in southwestern Illinois’ St. Clair County just hours after being charged with two felony counts of theft by deception. Jackson, wearing an orange jail jumpsuit, told a judge she would hire an attorney and was jailed on $100,000 bond. Belleville police Detective Sgt. Mark Heffernan said investigators began scrutinizing Jackson nearly a month ago after community members reported their suspicions that she was lying about having late-stage ovarian cancer. Police ultimately found that, although the community staged several fundraisers meant to defray her supposed medical expenses, Jackson never had cancer. It was not immediately clear for how long Jackson carried out her alleged deceit or how much she profited from well-intentioned donors

Alissa Jackson of Belleville is escorted to the St. Clair County Courthouse in Belleville for her arraignment. Jackson pleaded not guilty to charges that she bilked thousands of dollars in donations from hundreds of people she duped for months into believing she had terminal cancer. police say were part of “Alissa’s Army.� Wednesday’s criminal complaint alleges Jackson, who is married and has five children, pocketed more than $500 on May 12 from local Pizza Hut restaurants that devoted 20 percent of their profits that day to her. Jackson also is accused of stealing at least $500 from a woman who bought and sold T-shirts to raise funds for her from January through March 10. The scope of Jackson’s suspected ruse remained unclear Wednesday. Brendan Kelly, St. Clair County’s state’s attorney, told The Associated Press that

“it’s fair to say this involved several thousand dollars.� Citing the pending prosecution, he declined to discuss the matter further. Jackson does not have a listed home telephone number. Heffernan applauded locals who notified investigators about Jackson, whom he said “preyed on the good-hearted nature of the citizens in this community, and that is not something that this agency takes lightly.� “The emotional impact of what Jackson has done cannot be measured,� Heffernan said in a statement, noting that the

alleged scheme “has had an international reach� illustrated by calls he said police have fielded from around the world. “To the hundreds of people who donated to ‘Alissa’s Army’: Do not let Jackson’s evil prevent you from helping people in the future,� Heffernan added. “The willingness to help a person who is in need is something that is a part of human nature. We applaud you for trying to do the right thing. In the future, we suggest donating to established, reputable charities who funnel assistance to families in need.�

The Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Marion and another in St. Louis that serves veterans from southwestern Illinois are coming under scrutiny after an internal review showed several dozen patients waited more than 3 months for appointments.

More veterans hospitals under scrutiny in state Officials assure lawmakers there are no problems CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois members of Congress are increasing their scrutiny of veterans hospitals in the state after an internal review showing several dozen patients waited more than three months for appointments at two facilities. Letters from Veterans Affairs officials to some U.S. senators – including Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois and Kansas’ two senators – last week disclosed that problems with delayed care and unauthorized wait lists existed at several facilities throughout the Midwest. Among them were two hospitals serving veterans from southwestern Illinois, in Marion and St. Louis. Just days ago, officials at both facilities assured U.S. Rep. John Shimkus of Collinsville there were no such problems at either facility, the Republican told The Associated Press Wednesday, adding that he was surprised to learn otherwise this week. “That’s news to me which was not divulged in previous conversations with these administrators,� he said. “And so that may cause me to have to circle back to make sure I understood what they were telling me. That raises more questions.� Representatives for the two hospitals could not be reached for comment. A regional spokesman, Shaun Shenk, responded with a VA statement acknowledging problems in reporting accurate wait times and referring to system-wide efforts to accelerate care. Other lawmakers, meanwhile, were planning visits to VA facilities in Illinois this week, including the Marion VA Medical Center. The VA’s Inspector General’s Office is conducting a nationwide review of facilities after allegations first emerged at a hospital in Phoenix that secret waiting lists were used to cover up long wait times. In Illinois, most of the attention has been focused on a suburban Chicago hospital where several staff members and a union representa-

tive have come forward with similar allegations. Kirk, a Republican from Highland Park, has asked the VA’s acting inspector general to investigate the allegations, including whether $16.6 million in bonuses to employees may have led to secret wait lists and scheduling manipulation. “The VA will continue to be held accountable for this corruption until our nation’s veterans are given quality medical care in a timely manner. Anything less than that dishonors their immeasurable sacrifice,� Kirk said Wednesday. The director of the Edward Hines, Jr. VA Hospital has denied there were secret waiting lists at the facility. The letters that became public this week show that problems exist elsewhere in the state. Upon the request Kansas’ two senators, the letters summarized results from a review by the VA Heartland Network of 61 hospitals or clinics that serve Kansas, Missouri and parts of Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky. Veterans who waited longer than 90 days for care included 26 at VA St. Louis Health Care System and eight at the Marion hospital, which serves the southern parts of Illinois and Indiana. Shimkus said he spoke with the directors of both facilities in addition to one in Danville in recent days to emphasize the need for fast access to care. He said administrators made some mention of problems with following proper procedures and using the official electronic appointment system properly, but indicated they felt they were operating within guidelines. “My impression was ... that they all felt that there were no egregious examples and they were within standards,� he said. U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, said he’s focusing on how to fix the system, including eliminating the “bureaucratic nightmare� that led to the current crisis. “What we’ve seen at the VA is unacceptable and it’s our duty to make things right,� the Republican from Channahon said.

ILLINOIS

Former state lawmaker pleads not guilty in child porn case CHICAGO (AP) – A former Illinois state representative has pleaded not guilty to child pornography charges. Keith Farnham entered the plea Tuesday at a federal courthouse in Chicago. The 66-yearold Elgin Democrat was charged in a crimi-

nal complaint in April with possessing child pornography. A federal grand jury returned an indictment last month charging him with possessing, receiving and transporting child pornography. A judge ordered Farnham confined to his

home during the case, even refusing his request to be allowed to step onto his outdoor patio. Farnham also is barred from using computers or having unsupervised contact with anyone under 18. He must wear a monitoring bracelet, and the judge ordered

Farnham’s wife to be his custodian. The initial criminal complaint alleged that Farnham possessed videos depicting child pornography on a computer. The document also provided graphic details about images allegedly sought and traded by

Farnham online. Some allegedly showed children under 10. Farnham previously supported state legislation that aimed to toughen penalties against child pornography owners. Farnham, who entered the Legislature in 2009,

resigned in March after agents searched his home and state office. Farnham said at the time he needed to attend to “serious health issues.� He has since appeared in court with a portable oxygen tank and says he needs a lung transplant.

ROCK FALLS

City closing in on facade grant program Initial $20,000 budgeted to get program started BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com    EXT

ROCK FALLS – Facade improvement programs are usually associated with Main Street organizations. The city of Rock Falls doesn’t want the fact it doesn’t have a local Main Street group to stop it from offering help in refurbishing the exteriors of local businesses. At Wednesday’s meeting, the Building Code Committee reviewed a facade improvement program application packet the city would use and other program details. It will likely come before the

City Council for approval at its June 17 meeting. The city is working closely with the Rock Falls Community Development Corp. to get the program up and running. The RFCDC w i l l administer the program, but the city will fund it. The first Robbin round of Blackert funding has already been included in the fiscal year 201415 budget. Mayor Bill Wescott said $20,000 will be allocated to get the program started. The grants are 50/50 matches with the business owners, and the maximum award per grant is $5,000.

‘‘

We have talked to quite a few people who are waiting for this program, so it appears that the line is quite long already.

Bill Wescott, mayor of Rock Falls, on interest among business owners for the facade improvement program

Interest among business owners has been building, particularly in the downtown, the mayor said. “We have talked to quite a few people who are waiting for this program, so it appears that the line is quite long already,� Wescott said. The applications are considered by a facade committee. Work approved for grant funding must be inspected at the time of completion before the city’s 50 per-

cent is reimbursed to the business owner. “We don’t want a check disbursed until a business is open,� City Administrator Robbin Blackert said. She said the design guidelines in the packet were done specifically for the RB&W district, and would have to be changed to reflect a downtown emphasis before the council meeting. The city plans to take a closer look at how the

Obama is required by law to notify Congress 30 days before any terrorists are transferred from Guantanamo. “These unique and exigent circumstances despite the legal requirement of 30 days advance notice to Congress,“ could be used to say, move terrorists from Guantanamo to the Thomson prison or empty the prison in Cuba at this same rate, 5:1.

Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, said in a statement that “the safe return of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is an answer to the prayers of the Bergdahl family and a powerful reinforcement of our nation’s commitment to leave no service member behind.� Anyone can see that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s family rightfully is ecstatic about his release. But what about that commitment to our ambassador and his staff in Benghazi? This administration lies and insults our intelligence.

Earlier this year, speculation ran rampant about the fate of the 67 percent temporary income tax hike, much of which is set to expire Jan. 1. Although he was repeatedly asked his position on keeping the tax around, Gov. Pat Quinn pretty much ducked the question. He kept that up until his March budget speech, when he declared the tax hike should be made permanent to avoid drastic cuts to state services. That same day, both Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago, and House Speaker Michael Madigan, D-Chicago, said they, too, supported making the tax hike permanent. Madigan also said he expected the issue to be resolved before the end of the spring session. That appeared to somewhat blunt the cynics who assumed the tax hike would be made permanent, but during a lameduck session after the November election when lawmakers would either be safely re-elected or defeated and therefore free to vote on the tax extension without fear of facing voters again. Well, bring back the idea of the lame-duck tax hike. The House Democrats couldn’t or wouldn’t put enough votes on a bill to keep the tax hike permanent. At the same time, you have to prepare a state budget based on the revenue you’re going to get in the upcoming year. In this case, that means a whole lot less in income taxes. The House Democrats used some of the old gimmicks to minimize the impact, such as borrowing from restricted state funds, but the budget they produced appears to be a crisis waiting to happen. There are those who think the state can stumble through the first 6 months of the fiscal year before the stuff really hits the fan. That brings us to January. So we’re sort of back where we started. If Quinn gets re-elected, the pressure will be on to keep the tax hike around with a lame-duck vote on the issue. If Republican Bruce Rauner wins? Well, he says the tax hike should go away anyway, and he’s got a plan to show how it works. Maybe then we’ll finally see it.

Western couple held in Afghanistan Taliban video

shows handover of U.S. soldier

Video was sent to woman’s family WASHINGTON (AP) – The family of a pregnant American woman who went missing in Afghanistan in late 2012 with her Canadian husband received two videos last year in which the couple asked the U.S. government to help free them and their child from Taliban captors, The Associated Press has learned. The videos offer the first and only clues about what happened to Caitlan Coleman and Joshua Boyle after they lost touch with their families 20 months ago while traveling in a mountainous region near the capital, Kabul. U.S. law enforcement officials investigating the couple’s disappearance consider the videos authentic but say they hold limited investigative value since it’s not clear when or where they were made. The video files, which were provided to the AP, were emailed to Coleman’s father last July and September by an Afghan man who identified himself as having ties to the Taliban but who has been out of contact for several months. In

This frame grab from video provided by the Coleman family shows Caitlan Coleman and Joshua Boyle. The family of a then-pregnant American woman who went missing in Afghanistan in late 2012 with her Canadian husband received two videos last year in which the couple asked the U.S. government to help free them from their Taliban captors, The Associated Press has learned. one, a subdued Coleman – dressed in a conservative black garment that covers all but her face – appeals to “my president, Barack Obama� for help. “I would ask that my family and my government do everything that they can to bring my husband, child and I to safety and freedom,� the 28-year-old says in the other recording, talking into a wobbly camera while seated beside her husband, whose beard is long and untrimmed.

Though Coleman mentions a child, no baby is shown in the videos. The families say they have no information about the name or gender of the child, who would be about 18 months old. The families decided to make the videos public now, in light of the publicity surrounding the weekend rescue of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was freed from Taliban custody in exchange for the release of five high-level Taliban suspects at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The

families say they are disappointed that their children and grandchild were not freed as part of the same deal but are appealing for help from anyone who can give it, including the couple’s captors or the government. “It would be no more appropriate to have our government turn their backs on their citizens than to turn their backs on those who serve,� Patrick Boyle, a Canadian judge and the father of Joshua Boyle, said in a telephone interview.

BRUSSELS

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – As a thin, tenselooking Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was handed over to U.S. forces, one of his Taliban captors leaned in and warned him: “Don’t come back to Afghanistan. You won’t make it out alive next time.� Then, the American soldier, wearing traditional, loose-fitting Afghan trousers and a long tunic, was led away to a U.S. military helicopter, where he was patted down for explosives or other weapons before climbing aboard. The weekend handover in the dusty desert was documented in a 17-minute video emailed to news organizations Wednesday by the Taliban, which touted the exchange of Bergdahl for five Guantanamo detainees as a victory, while debate raged in the U.S. over the deal and whether the 28-year-old from Hailey, Idaho, should be punished as a deserter. Bergdahl’s hometown on Wednesday canceled plans for a welcome-home celebration later this month, citing concerns over its

The town of 8,000 has been swamped with critical emails and phone calls over Bergdahl. Some Americans have questioned whether he deserves a hero’s welcome, since he was captured after walking away from his unit, unarmed, in 2009. U.S. lawmakers and others have also complained that Congress should have been consulted about the prisoner exchange, that the deal will embolden the Taliban to snatch more American soldiers, and that the released Afghans will filter back to the battlefield.

Talk of Putin and his actions in Ukraine dominates G-7 summit BRUSSELS (AP) – Russian President Vladimir Putin was kept out of Wednesday’s summit of major economies over his actions in Ukraine, yet world leaders appeared eager to seek his renewed cooperation to settle the crisis. “At this stage, we consider that we have some possibilities, diplomatic and political, to see if Russia is ready to engage more and to stop the destabilization in Ukraine,� said the summit’s host, European Union President Herman Van Rompuy. When pressed on further sanctions against Russia, Van Rompuy told reporters “we only continue the preparations� on a technical level, should they be necessary. Since Russia refrained from a full-out invasion of Ukraine, started pulling back its troops from the border, and reluctantly accepted the results of Ukraine’s presidential election, Western leaders apparently no longer want to talk about imposing new sanctions, but sought to renew diplomatic contacts. That effort is already well under way with French President Francois Hollande, British Prime Minister David Cameron and

Husband’s betrayal puts wife’s health at risk Dear Abby: I just found out my husband was arrested for being with a hooker. My in-laws (whom I love and adore) bailed him out of jail. No one said a word about it to me. I don’t know how to confront all of them with the fact that I know about this “dirty little secret.� What should I do? – Betrayed Wife

And this is an issue in many Dear Mom: If the while you’re at it, ask your homes. When my son, amount of mail I receive mother-in-law (whom “Chet,� graduated from from readers complainyou love and adore) how high school, we gave him ing that their gifts are

not acknowledged is an accurate barometer, your problem is very common. Without being confrontational, ask your son why he refuses to thank the people who gave him gifts. If the answer is he doesn’t know what to say and he’s embarrassed that he has procrastinated, offer to help him by making suggestions. You’re right; the thank-yous don’t have to be lengthy. But DO NOT write them for him. Chet is a big boy, and the responsibility is his. Dear Abby: I am a divorced, single woman in my 50s. I love my grandchildren dearly but am faced with a dilemma. I work full-time and take

my grandchildren some nights and on the one day I have off – usually on weekends. I can’t plan things on a weekend without feeling I have made it difficult for my son and his wife to find someone to watch their children. Her mom, a stay-at-home wife, watches them several days a week. I want to continue spending time with my grandkids, but I also want the freedom to be there when I choose to be. I realize finding a sitter you can afford and trust to watch your children is a challenge. I have tried talking to my son, but it doesn’t seem to get through to him. I know I need to do something,

but what? I’m afraid I won’t see the kids at all if I take a stand. – Lady On The Lake in Michigan Dear Lady: Check your calendar and plan some time for yourself – one or two weekends a month. Then tell your son and his wife which ones you will be AVAILABLE. Free baby-sitting services are hard to come by, and you are not giving yourself enough credit. If the unspoken threat is that it’s “all or nothing,� then, frankly, you should step back further and let your son and daughter-inlaw shoulder even more responsibility for the children they brought into this world.

MOVIE REVIEW | â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;EDGE OF TOMORROWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Cruise experiences â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Groundhog D-Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

I

BY ROGER MOORE -#4.EWS3ERVICE

n this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Tom Cruise sci-fi epic, he plays a future soldier condemned to repeat the same botched D-Day invasion until he triumphs against the alien beasties who keep killing him and forcing him to start this waking nightmare again. Titles worth considering â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Groundhog D-Dayâ&#x20AC;?? Or maybe, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Million Ways to Die in the Future?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Edge of Tomorrowâ&#x20AC;? could have been another â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nextâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Knowing,â&#x20AC;? lame variations on a Nic Cage-knows-thefuture theme. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost as good as Jake Gyllenhaalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earlier take on this sort of plot, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Source Code,â&#x20AC;? a thriller about a time traveler dealing with a steep learning curve as he frantically tries to work through variations of who set off a bomb on a train. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Edge,â&#x20AC;? based on a Hiroshi Sakurazaka novel, script partly credited to Christopher (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usual Suspectsâ&#x20AC;?) McQuarrie and directed by Doug (â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Bourne Identityâ&#x20AC;?) Liman, gets its juice from its action and its life from its humor. No kidding, almost every time Major Cage (Cruise) dies, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a laugh. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because he figures out that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going through this nightmare for a reason, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one soldier in it with him, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Angel of Verdunâ&#x20AC;? (Emily Blunt) who knows what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experiencing and knows

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Edge of Tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

MCT News Service

Emily Blunt stars as Rita and Tom Cruise as Cage in Warner Bros. Picturesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and Village Roadshow Picturesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sci-fi thriller â&#x20AC;&#x153;Edge of Tomorrowâ&#x20AC;? if he makes a mistake, she can shoot him in the head as a way of hitting this battleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reset button. Yeah, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny after a bit. Cage, an Army media relations officer, is a confirmed coward in the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening scenes. The general in charge (Brendan Gleeson) has condemned Cage to embed with the first wave hitting the French beaches as the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s armies converge on spider-like aliens called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mimics.â&#x20AC;? So Cage wakes up every day to the sound of a sergeant bellowing â&#x20AC;&#x153;On your feet, MAGGOT.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a version of that dream where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re speaking in public and you forgot to put on your pants. Untrained for combat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know how to switch the safety off on the ordnance attached to his exoskeleton armor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Cage is hurled into a chaotic lost battle where he meets

the heroine, Sgt. Rita (Blunt). With reasoning and a LOT of practice deaths, he and she work out how to survive the fight just a little longer each time out with an eye toward foiling these aliens before they do what Hitler never could â&#x20AC;&#x201C; cross the English Channel and end human civilization. The script has Cage taking stupid chances, sure in the knowledge that he will get a doover if he screws up. It has him dreading each version of the missionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failure, the array of explosions, impalings, or head shots by Sgt. Rita that punch that reset button. And like Bill Murray in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Groundhog Dayâ&#x20AC;? and Gyllenhaal in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Source Code,â&#x20AC;? and even Sigourney Weaver in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alien 3,â&#x20AC;? it has Cage dealing with his own coming death and the futility of fighting it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Edge of Tomorrowâ&#x20AC;? gets its heart from Elizabeth Kubler-Rossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Five Stages of Grief from â&#x20AC;&#x153;On Death and Dying.â&#x20AC;? Cage is in frantic â&#x20AC;&#x153;denialâ&#x20AC;? this is happening. He rages in â&#x20AC;&#x153;angerâ&#x20AC;? at his circumstances. He starts â&#x20AC;&#x153;bargainingâ&#x20AC;? his way through it, trying to convince others theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the nightmare with him. He hits the wall â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;depression.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done.â&#x20AC;? And, as Kubler-Ross predicted, he reaches â&#x20AC;&#x153;acceptanceâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; making the best of his fate. Liman lays a solid hour of brisk, brutal and brutally funny action on us â&#x20AC;&#x201C; introducing and reintroducing the demoted and humiliated Cage to his sergeant (Bill Paxton), who serves him the same bromide â&#x20AC;&#x201C; combat is â&#x20AC;&#x153;the fiery crucible in which true heroes are forgedâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and introduces him to J-Squad, the jump team he will watch die all around him as they try, again and again, to win this unwinnable scenario.

Cage has met Rita, time and again, and has an over-familiarity with her that she understands, but doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like. The constant resets after working oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way through another section of the battlefield are straight out of video gaming, something fans will pick up on right away. But unlike the rest of this cinematic dĂŠja vu, the more somber Five Stages of Grief stuff sneaks up on you. That gives this popcornweight action pic some nice gravitas to go with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Million Ways Tom Cruise Gets to Dieâ&#x20AC;? jokes.

NBA FINALS

Sequel that all wanted to see made Heat, Spurs ready to lock horns, again BY BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

SAN ANTONIO – LeBron James and Dwyane Wade can point to statistics showing just how close the 2013 NBA Finals were. Tim Duncan doesn’t need them. He can’t forget the way his San Antonio Spurs lost, especially since every replay brings another painful reminder. The Spurs were on the verge of celebrating a fifth title in Game 6, and just two nights later were congratulating the Miami Heat on their second straight crown. The Spurs wanted a rematch, and so did basketball fans. It begins today in San Antonio. “I think it’s great that these two franchises have this opportunity in back-to-back years to compete for a championship,” Wade said Wednesday. “Last year was an unbelievable series and ... it went down to the very end. We won the series by a total of five points, you know? That’s how close it was. But it was a very even series. I think this year it could be another great series.” From Tony Parker’s circus shot that stole Game 1 for the Spurs, to Ray Allen’s 3-pointer that saved Game 6 for the Heat, to James’ jumper that put away Game 7, almost every contest provided a new highlight.

Kaitlyn Liebing’s catcher’s mask rests on a fence at Amboy High School on Tuesday at the Clippers softball practice. The “Paz” sticker is in honor of Mike Pasley, a social studies teacher at Amboy, who died in March.

MEMORY REMAINS

Pasley’s spirit lives in Clippers’ state-bound team BY DAN WOESSNER dwoessner@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5555

Destinee Oenes stepped to the plate on April 10 with the score between her Amboy Clippers and the Newman Comets tied at four. The senior third baseman had homered once earlier in the game, and despite emotions running high, she blocked everything else out of her mind. “I came to plate with the situation in the game on my mind,” Oenes said. “That’s all you can do. We had a runner on, and I wanted to make sure that I either moved her over or drove her in. The home run was sort of a bonus.” Oenes clubbed a two-run home run to cap a big

win over a rival in Newman, and to end a game between two teams that were mourning. On Sunday, March 23, Mike Pasley, a social studies teacher and an ardent supporter of athletics at Amboy, had died suddenly. Pasley’s daughter, Erin, is a player on the Newman fresh/soph team. “We always want to beat Newman,” Oenes said. “But that game meant more to both teams, and it was a special moment.” Both teams wore shirts remembering Pasley, and Amboy has stickers that say “Paz” on their helmets. Some players also have stickers on their car windows. MEMORY CONTINUED ON B3

Kelly Whitman remembers when it felt good to see the Amboy softball team avoid a run-rule loss before the fifth inning. Going seven was almost a novel idea. Going to the state tournament as anything other than a spectator wasn’t even on the radar of anyone near Amboy High School. Whitman started teaching at Amboy during the 2000-01 school year, and that spring the Clippers started a softball program. Whitman was an assistant to Tina Eller those first few years. “We were dealing with a whole new program,” Whit-

man said. “We had girls that had never played, much less having anyone that could pitch. “Heck, back then you could get runruled after three innings. It was really hard to get the girls to stay motivated when that happens, much less get them to practice to get better.” Whitman, who played at Dixon, hadn’t been a part of a winning program in high school either, but this depth of losing was a brand new experience. After a few years as an understudy, Whitman became the head coach. Whitman keeps a poster board with each season’s record.

California Chrome gallops during a workout at Belmont Park, Wednesday in Elmont, N.Y. The Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner will attempt to become the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978 when he races in the 146th running of the Belmont Stakes on Saturday.

Jockey for position California Chrome draws No. 2 post for Belmont Stakes BY CHILDS WALKER -C#LATCHY4RIBUNE7RITER

man reached to the past, noting Secretariat clinched the Triple Crown from an inside post in the Belmont. Of course, that great chestnut only had to beat four other horses. California Chrome, the new-generation chestnut, will have to beat 10. The 6-1 second choice on the morning line is Wicked Strong, who finished fourth in the Kentucky Derby and scored the biggest win of his career in the Wood Memorial at New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aqueduct Racetrack. Because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fresher than California Chrome, and because he has run best in New York, Wicked Strong is a popular upset pick around Belmont Park. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start from the No. 9 post, which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to trainer Jimmy Jerkensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; liking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The middle seems like the place to be,â&#x20AC;? Jerkens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems like jockeys donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to do as much maneuvering in the early part of the race. It just makes it easier for them to settle their horse initially.â&#x20AC;?

Belmont Stakes

ELMONT, N.Y. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The tension is palpable as post positions are drawn for the Kentucky Derby. Trainers entertain nightmare visions of their wonderfully quick animals becoming trapped behind a wall of 19 other horses. For the Belmont Stakes? Horsemen spoke as if Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draw barely mattered. With its 1 1/2-mile length, wide turns and smaller fields, the race presents a different set of problems that overshadow fears of early traffic. Which might be a good thing for California Chrome, who will start from the No. 2 post as he tries to become the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978. The Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes champion is a 3-5 favorite on the morning line. Though some of California Chromeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s connections acknowledged the position is less than ideal, they shrugged it off, say-

TENNIS | FRENCH OPEN

Nadal takes control with forehand Nadal, Murray set up French Open semifinal matchup BY HOWARD FENDRICH !04ENNIS7RITER

PARIS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Briefly, and only briefly, Rafael Nadal was in a difficult spot in the French Open quarterfinals. For the first time in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament, the eight-time champion dropped a set. And this had to be on Nadalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind: His opponent, David Ferrer, could present real problems. Not only is Ferrer ranked No. 5, and not only was he the runnerup at Roland Garros a year ago â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to Nadal,

of course â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but he also beat Nadal on red clay the last time they played each other. So how did Nadal handle this test? Perfectly. From late in the second set, he won 10 games in a row, and 13 of 14 the rest of the way, to come back and beat Ferrer 4-6, 6-4, 6-0, 6-1, setting up a semifinal Friday against Wimbledon champion Andy Murray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the beginning,â&#x20AC;? Nadal acknowledged, AP â&#x20AC;&#x153;David was playing Rafael Nadal hits against Dominic Thiem in a secwith a higher intensity ond round match of the French Open on Thursday than me.â&#x20AC;? at the Roland Garros Stadium, in Paris.

Clippers playing for lost teacher, supporter of program MEMORY

Oenesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; approach at the plate would have made Pasley proud. Pasley was a PA announcer at football and basketball games at Amboy. He also worked as a sports correspondent for the Moline Dispatch, Quincy Herald Whig and Sauk Valley Media. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really sad, because he really was our biggest supporter,â&#x20AC;? junior catcher Kaitlyn Leibing said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d send out emails to everyone in school on game days to try and get them to come to games. If he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d always ask how the game went the next day.â&#x20AC;? The tragedy of Pasleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death also pushed the team together, forcing them to form stronger bonds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This team had to face such adversity early in the season, and helped form their character,â&#x20AC;? Amboy coach Kelly Whitman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They learned to not take anything for granted and never to give up.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;His death was sad, but it brought us so close together,â&#x20AC;? Oenes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it sort of became our motivation.â&#x20AC;? When Liebing caught the final pitch â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a strike â&#x20AC;&#x201C; of Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1A DeKalb Supersectional win over Putnam County, she admits that Pasley was the first thing to come to her mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After all these big wins, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who I think about,â&#x20AC;? Liebing said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve definitely felt like he was watching down on us

Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been exciting, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to battle. He would have been proud.â&#x20AC;? And maybe it should be no surprise that the game set up to honor Pasley turned out to be a tune up for Oenes in the postseason. On Saturday, the Clippers rallied in the seventh inning with two runs to tie Orangeville in the 1A Pearl City Sectional championship game. After Karlee Doege kept the Broncos off the board in the top of the eighth, Oenes stepped to the plate with two outs in the bottom of the inning. One more swing, one more homer, and the Clippers had made history by winning their first sectional title. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The home run at the sectional is probably the one Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll remember most,â&#x20AC;? Oenes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To win the first sectional like that is amazing. But both home runs are special memories from a special season.â&#x20AC;?

STANLEY CUP FINALS | KINGS 3, RANGERS 2, OT

Good to be back home Williams puts Kings past Rangers in Game 1 of Finals BY GREG BEACHAM AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Justin Williams scored 4:36 into overtime after a turnover by Dan Girardi, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the New York Rangers 3-2 on Wednesday night in the Stanley Cup finals opener. Williams was left alone in the slot after Girardiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pass from his knees went straight to Mike Richards. Williams put his eighth goal of the postseason past Henrik Lundqvist, who made 40 saves and nearly stole an early win for

the Rangers. Jonathan Quick made 25 saves for the Kings, who moved one victory closer to their second Stanley Cup title in 3 years after a hair-raising opener. Game 2 is Saturday at Staples Center. Kyle Clifford had a goal and an assist for Los Angeles, and Drew Doughty scored the tying goal in the second period, as the Kings overcame yet another early deficit in a postseason full of comebacks. The Kings hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t won an overtime playoff

game at home since May 6, 2001. Williams attributed the win to â&#x20AC;&#x153;resilience and believing. Certainly it was not the start we wanted, but we got the result we wanted.â&#x20AC;? Benoit Pouliot scored on a breakaway, and Carl Hagelin got a short-handed goal in the first period, but the Rangers spent much of the final two periods on their heels. Lundqvist had several outstanding saves as the Swedish star began his attempt to win his first Stanley Cup, but had no chance on Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; winner.

Difference between two teams minimal SEQUEL

CONTINUED FROM B1

It deserved an encore, just like when the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers seemed to pick up right where they left off in the 1980s. The NBA hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a finals rematch since 1998, when Michael Jordanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chicago Bulls beat Utah for the second straight season. San Antonio is considered a slight favorite this time, perhaps a little deeper, healthier and better than it was last year, and owning the home-court advantage this time. The Spurs donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to change much to change the result. They outscored the Heat 684-679 over seven games, and there were 47 ties and 42 lead changes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you look at the numbers, the lead changes, the ties and the points in that series, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost even,â&#x20AC;? James said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we did our part, they

did their part. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both teams put themselves in a position to win an NBA championship, and we just happened to make one or two more plays to win it.â&#x20AC;? Duncan, a three-time NBA Finals MVP who had been 4-for-4 on this stage, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on the floor when the Spurs couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come up with a rebound just before Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shot. He then missed a shot and follow attempt from right in front of the basket in the final minute of Game 7 with San Antonio trailing by two. Not even getting back to the finals again with the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best record can make him forget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It lasts. I have a very good memory, especially for my misses and losses. You keep those, you learn from them and you

hope to change them next time,â&#x20AC;? Duncan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That stuck with me, and obviously itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always in the back of my mind, and every time I see anything to do with that, it pops right back in.â&#x20AC;? James had similar regrets in his first finals with Miami in 2011, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been all smiles since. The Heat are the first team to play in four straight finals since Boston from 1984-87, and can become the first three-time champion since the Lakers more than a decade ago. But their focus is only on winning the next title, not reminiscing about the last couple. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year is last year and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited about it, but this trophy this year belongs to nobody,â&#x20AC;? James said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up for grabs.â&#x20AC;?

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking of selling your home, farmland, commercial or investment property, you want somone who can get your property the maximum exposure.

Keep control of a bad break

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Professor Shlomo Benartzi, an expert on various types of behavioral finance, said, “Selfcontrol is not a problem in the future. It’s only a problem now when the chocolates are next to us.” Keeping the trump suit under control is often a problem of what to do now, at this trick. Today’s deal would trip the unwary or the perennially optimistic. How should South play in four spades after West leads the heart six? East opened with a textbook vulnerable weak two-bid, promising a good six-card suit and 6-10 high-card points. South made a takeout double, and North cue-bid to indicate at least 12 high-card points. South started showing four-card suits in ascending

order, and North raised to game in spades. South has two losers in the red suits, so at first glance needs to find spades 3-2. However, on closer inspec-

tion, declarer will notice that he can discard dummy’s heart losers on his club winners. Without further thought, but perhaps after eating an orange cream or two, South would win with dummy’s heart ace, cash the two top trumps (getting the bad news), and take his three clubs, discarding dummy’s hearts. However, when he next plays a diamond, West wins with his ace, draws trumps, and leads a heart, resulting in down four. Often, when you must make use of a side suit, it is right to play on that suit first. Here, declarer should win the first trick, draw one round of trumps, take his heart discards on the clubs, and play a diamond. Everything is then under control. South loses only two spades and one diamond. © 2014 UFS

Astrograph Not the time to be pushy Thursday, June 5, 2014 You are in a good position this year, but you could spoil your chances of success with negativity and anxiety. You have the knowledge and determination to achieve, but insecurities will weigh you down and hold you back. Strive to increase your selfconfidence, and you will go far. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -This is not the time to be pushy. Compromise is required. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Be sensitive, and let others have their say. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Get in touch with someone from your past. It’s time to revive an old friendship or flame. Make the first move, and see if a response is elicited. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you have been neglectful in any way, it’s time to make amends. Life is too short to waste your time arguing. Compromise is a good place to begin when dealing with an important relationship.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A delightful surprise will brighten your day. Love and romance are highlighted, so

spend some extra-special time with the people you love the most. Actions speak louder than words. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You will get caught up in a dispute. Before you make any suggestions, get the facts. Keeping the peace will be more difficult than anticipated. Be prepared to back away if necessary. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You will be unsure of how to deal with an important decision. Go back to the people you have trusted in the past. Their input will help you to make the right choices. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Collaborative ventures should be avoided today. Do your homework. You can make a small investment pay off, but it must be on your terms. Work alone. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It’s time to tackle home beautification and domestic chores. Yardwork, redecoration and reorganization are good ways to spruce up your surroundings and burn a few calories.

PUZZLE ENTHUSIASTS: Get more puzzles in AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Imagination is only part of the equation for a successful effort. Changes need to be made, and now is the time to make things happen. You have waited long enough to reach your goals. Forge ahead. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Someone is trying to deceive you. Don’t believe what you are told. You will have to get the information firsthand if you want to discover the truth. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t be afraid to say no. It’s good to offer help, but before you do, take care of your responsibilities. You don’t have to be superhuman. Take a break. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Do whatever it takes to enjoy life today. Your health will suffer if you’re constantly worrying. Go out and do something with the people who make you happy.
