In January 2013, Mayor Jim Burke named seven residents to a task force that was given the job of evaluating the city’s form of government.

He kicked off his campaign Monday with a dinner at The Long Branch Saloon in Amboy. “I’ve voted proudly for new revenue sources to the county,” he said when talking about his time on the County Board. “I got $5,000 for the Amboy Senior Citizen Center here in town. “Most importantly, I put together an investment plan that’s netting the county 500 percent more than what my opponent’s plan is recent years has been.”

Morrissey will run against John Fritts, a Republican who has held the position for nearly 20 years and has run unopposed in elections since the 1990s.

Morrissey: Treasurer should be financial adviser to County Board MORRISSEY

CONTINUED FROM A1

In January, Fritts approved a plan that, at the time, he said would yield 8 times more in investment income on county funds, based on Morrissey’s idea. While Morrissey said he had a lot of respect for Fritts and his family, he said the treasurer hasn’t been acting as the county’s chief financial officer. Morrissey said the country treasurer should be a financial adviser to help

the County Board find revenue; an intelligent investor with the taxpayers’ John money; a Fritts business consultant to work with the local chambers of commerce to bring in business; and be involved in the County Board and budget meetings. “We don’t have a CFO right now at the county,� Morrissey said. “We need a CFO. So let’s have a CFO in November.�

Melrose Park man was drowning victim BY JOSEPH BUSTOS JBUSTOS SHAWMEDIACOM 3HAW.EWS3ERVICE

The McHenry County Coroner’s Office on Monday identified the person who drowned Sunday in Pistakee Lake as a Melrose Park man. William L. Trybula, 49, drowned while swimming in the lake on Sunday, according to an autopsy, the coroner’s office said. Toxicology results are pending. Trybula was pulled out of the lake by firefighters after being underwater for nearly 45 minutes. He had no pulse and was not breathing. He

was later pronounced dead at Centegra Hospital-McHenry. The accident happened roughly 300 feet off the shore. Trybula and a friend decided to jump out of their 23-foot Baja boat while it was not anchored, the McHenry Township Fire Protection District has said. The wind picked up and pushed the boat away from both swimmers, firefighters said. The friend made it back to the boat, while the Trybula never surfaced above water, firefighters said.

During a question-andanswer session, Rauner touched on the following topics, among others, and said: s4HEHIGHCOSTOFWORKers’ compensation is the No. 1 problem facing

the state and is pushing employers to move jobs to neighboring states such as Indiana and Wisconsin. s4HESTATEHASAUNIQUE opportunity for growth in the technology industry, with the work being done at the University of Illinois’ computer sciences department and some

technology companies based in Chicago and Urbana. “We could be thriving and booming in the technology sector if we made it a priority to create an environment for technology companies,� he said. s 4HERES POTENTIAL FOR an economic boom in

the southern third of the state when it comes to energy development. The government has been hostile to that idea so far, but energy development can be be explored while still protecting the environment. “I believe we should aggressively, responsibly pursue that.�

“It is our belief that the complexities of the modern municipal government require that a city like Dixon have professional management of the day-to-day operations under the supervision and ultimate authority of an elected mayor and council members,� she said Monday. In the commission form of government, elected officials have executive and policymaking authority. A change to the managerial form would give executive authority to a city manager, while the elected officials would retain policymaking authority, among other nuances.

Dixon man, 56, dies in Stephenson County crash His wife was stable Monday after being thrown from car BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com    EXT

FREEPORT – A Dixon man died Sunday in an accident involving his 57-year-old car, which wasn’t equipped with seat belts. Brad Wohrley, 56, was found dead at the scene by Stephenson County sheriff’s deputies after his 1957 Chevrolet had collided nearly head-on with an SUV south of Freeport.

Wohrley’s wife, Mary, 58, had been thrown from their car, which didn’t have seat belts. She was taken to Rockford Memorial Hospital, where she was said to be stable on Monday. According to a sheriff’s department news release, deputies arrived at 1:13 p.m. Sunday at the scene on state Route 26, just north of Rudy Road. The Wohrleys’ vehicle had been southbound when it was struck by a white Chevrolet Equinox that was heading north. Sheriff David Snyders said the driver of the Equinox, 69-year-old James

R. Battisti, of Freeport, apparently had a medical issue and blacked out just before the accident. After the collision, Battisti’s truck veered into a field and caught fire, but he was pulled from his flaming vehicle without much difficulty, Snyders said. Battisti was taken to FHN Memorial Hospital. His condition was not made available Monday. After Mary Wohrley was ejected, the car rolled – its front end landing on top of her, Snyders said. Brad Wohrley was the owner of Wohrley Heating and Air Conditioning in Dixon.

Governor signs partial pension fix for Chicago Rauner: I would have vetoed law CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation Monday to help Chicago reduce a multibillion-dollar pension shortfall for two of its pension systems, but advised Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the City Council not to raise property taxes for needed revenues. An early version of the measure contained a property tax hike, which Emanuel said was necessary to avoid cuts to services. The provision was later removed, something Quinn noted in his decision to sign the bill. “As the mayor and members of the Chicago City Council work to identify savings to meet their (pension) obligations, ... I urge them to rule out a property tax increase on Chicago homeowners and businesses,� Quinn said in a statement. “I recognize that Chicago’s mission to

In a statement, Emanuel called the new law “another step toward correcting the series of financial challenges that have been building over the last few decades.� Emanuel said he would work with City Council members to find “alternative options� to

replace property taxes as a revenue source, at least for the near future. The legislation has been a political problem for Quinn, who faces a tough re-election race against Republican Bruce Rauner. On one hand, Quinn has vowed to avoid increasing property taxes and even called for a property tax refund earlier this year – an idea that went nowhere in the General Assembly. On the other hand, if he had rejected the bill it could have complicated his relationship with Emanuel, another top Illinois Democrat. Rauner, a venture capitalist from Winnetka, wasted no time in blasting Quinn on the decision. “I would have vetoed this law – but Pat Quinn likes to raise taxes and left homeowners holding the bag again,� Rauner said in a statement minutes after Quinn’s decision. “This should have been a no-brainer – veto the bill, don’t squeeze Chicago families even more.�

CHICAGO (AP) – An Illinois lawmaker placed his own welfare above his constituents by taking a $7,000 bribe from a day care operator seeking a state grant, a prosecutor said during closing arguments Monday. An attorney for Rep. Derrick Smith, however, told jurors a campaign worker-turned-informant hoodwinked the Chicago Democrat to justify cooperation payments from his FBI handlers. “He wasn’t going to commit a crime,� Victor Henderson said about his client. “That was something they fabricated.� Prosecutor Marsha McClellan pooh-poohed the notion the 50-year-old was led astray against his will. “There sits a defendant whose public face is one of service, but who privately wanted to use that office ... to get cash into his pockets,� she said. McClellan talked about the secret recordings of Smith made by the informant. They left no doubt,

she argued, that Smith knew the 70 $100 bills he accepted was a bribe. She also noted what she said was his confident tone on the tapes. “He never thought this day would come,� she said, referring to the trial. Smith denies accepting a bribe in exchange for writing a letter supporting the day care’s bid for a state grant, all of which turned out to be part of an elaborate FBI sting. The informant was referred to in court only by his first name, Pete, and he didn’t testify. Henderson described the informant as a convicted felon who “set up� Smith in order to get up to $1,000 a week from the FBI for his cooperation. “He’s a hustler,� Henderson said. “He hustled the representative and he hustled the FBI.� The prosecution emphasized Smith’s own words. In one tape from March 2012, the informant counts aloud as he hands the cash in seven, $1,000 stacks to Smith.

CHAMPAIGN (AP) – After 38 years of math tutoring, Don Cohen will hang up his hat as “The Math Man� at the end of this month. Cohen, who gave up a job in computer-based education at the University of Illinois to tutor full time, still averages 43 student sessions a week. But at age 84, he’s getting ready to make some life changes. “My son is concerned about my health, and he wants me to stay healthy,� Cohen said last week. “He found me a place at Prairie Winds assisted living (in Urbana).� Cohen’s wife, Marilyn, is in a nursing home as the result of a 2012 stroke. “I’m running over there every day, doing my tutoring, taking care of the house,� Cohen said. “I feel pretty good, but there’s a lot of stuff going on.� Much of the stuff takes place in the basement of his home in west Champaign, where kids meet

Cohen works with Lucia Lombardi, 14, on May 14 in his home in Champaign. in groups. On a recent afternoon, he helped a 14-year-old girl preparing for finals and 6- and 8-year-old brothers, one of whom was working on equations, the other on fractions. “I have at most five kids in a group – mostly four or fewer – and they sit around my table in the math room,� he said. “I work individually with each one.� Cohen’s tutoring sessions last 45 minutes. “Last school year, I was averaging 57 student

sessions per week, and this year, I’m averaging about 43,� he said. One of Cohen’s claims to fame is his book “Calculus By and For Young People – Ages 7 (Yes, 7) and Up.� That book, translated into Japanese and also available on CD-ROM and DVD, outlines Cohen’s belief that even young children can absorb mathematical concepts if they’re presented in ways that interest and intrigue the kids. When asked why a

7-year-old would want to learn calculus, Cohen declared 7-year-olds “don’t know calculus from a hole in the ground – I don’t use the word at the beginning.� But the notion of an infinite process “is very interesting to them,� he said. To illustrate the idea, he had an 8-year-old divide a square cake into halves, then cut one of the halves in half, then divide one of the quarters in half and so on. The child concluded that if you added the half, the quarter, the eighth, the sixteenth and so on together, there would always be a smaller and smaller piece of the cake remaining. Cohen got math and physics degrees from the State University of New York at Albany, plus a master’s degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He taught math to junior high school students in New York and Missouri before joining The Madison Project, a teacher-training project funded by the National Science Foundation.

VETERAN AFFAIRS DEPARTMENT | HEALTH CARE SERVICES AUDIT

Audit: More than 57K await first appointment Boehner calls finding ‘a national disgrace’ WASHINGTON (AP) – More than 57,000 U.S. military veterans have been waiting 90 days or more for their first VA medical appointments, and an additional 64,000 appear to have fallen through the cracks, never getting appointments after enrolling and requesting them, the Veterans Affairs Department said Monday. It’s not just a backlog problem, the wide-ranging review indicated. Thirteen percent of schedulers in the facility-by-facility report on 731 hospitals and outpatient clinics reported being told by supervisors to falsify appointment schedules to make patient waits appear shorter. The audit is the first nationwide look at the VA network in the uproar that began with reports 2 months ago of patients dying while awaiting appointments and of cover-ups at the Phoenix VA center. A preliminary review last month found that long patient waits and falsified records were “systemic� throughout the VA medical network, the nation’s largest single health care provider serving nearly 9 million veterans. “This behavior runs counter to our core values,� the report

said. “The overarching environment and culture which allowed this state of practice to take root must be confronted head-on.� Acting VA Secretary Sloan Gibson said Monday that VA officials have contacted 50,000 veterans across the country to get them off waiting lists and into clinics and are in the process of contacting 40,000 more. The controversy forced VA Secretary Eric Shinseki to resign May 30. Shinseki took the blame for what he decried as a “lack of integrity� through the network. Legislation is being written in both the House and Senate to allow more veterans who can’t get timely VA appointments to see doctors listed as providers under Medicare or the military’s TRICARE program. The proposals also would make it easier to fire senior VA regional officials and hospital administrators. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said the report demonstrated that Congress must act immediately. “The fact that more than 57,000 veterans are still waiting for their first doctor appointment from the VA is a national disgrace,� Boehner said. The new audit said a 14-day agency target for waiting times was “not attainable,� given poor planning and a grow-

The Veterans Affairs Department says more than 57,000 patients still are waiting for initial medical appointments at VA hospitals and clinics 90 days or more after requesting them.

It called the 2011 decision by senior VA officials to set the target, and then base bonuses on meeting it, “an organizational leadership failure.� A previous inspector general’s investigation into the troubled Phoenix VA Health Care System found that about 1,700 veterans in need of care were “at risk of being lost or forgotten� after being kept off an official, electronic waiting list. The report issued Monday offers a broader picture of

About 900 Illinois veterans requested, didn’t get, care CHICAGO (AP) – Data released Monday shows the average wait time for a patient to see a primary care physician at a Veterans Affairs hospital in Danville is nearly four times the federal administration’s target of 14 days. While the average 54-day wait for primary care at the east central Illinois facility pales in comparison to a national high of a 145-day wait for primary care in Honolulu, Hawaii, it was also the highest of Illinois’ five major VA medical centers. The audit of 731 hospitals and outpatient clinics based on a snapshot of VA data as of May 15 – follows allegations that 40 patients died awaiting care at a Phoenix hospital where employees kept a secret waiting list to cover up delays. It’s a report that Republican U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk says is proof of a “pretty toxic culture of corruption� throughout the department. His Democratic colleague, U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, called the news both “troubling� and “unacceptable.� The audit shows the average wait time for a primary care appointment was 38 days at the Marion VA Medical center, 33 days for patients at Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital outside Chicago and 41 days at the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center in Chicago. The James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center in North Chicago had a wait time of slightly more than 14 days. Abandoned VA guidelines said veterans should be seen within 14 days of their desired date for a primary care appointment. The department has since said that meeting that target was unattainable given existing resources and growing demand. Monday’s audit by the VA called the 2011 decision by senior VA officials to set it, and then basing bonuses on meeting the

the overall system. The audit includes interviews with more than 3,772 employees nationwide between May 12 and June 3. Respondents at 14 sites reported having been sanctioned or punished over scheduling practices. Wait times for new patients far exceeded the 14-day goal, the audit said. For example, the wait time for primary care screening appointment at Baltimore’s VA health care center was almost 81 days. At Canandaigua, New York, it was 72 days. On the other hand, at

Coatesville, Pennsylvania, it was only 17 days and in Bedford, Massachusetts just 12 days. The longest wait was in Honolulu – 145 days. But for veterans already in the system, waits were much shorter. For example, established patients at VA facilities in New Jersey, Connecticut and Battle Creek, Michigan, waited an average of only 1 day to see health care providers. The longest average wait for veterans already in the system was 30 days, in Fayetteville, North Carolina, a military-heavy region with Fort Bragg Army Base and Pope Air Force Base nearby. Gibson, the acting VA secretary, said the department is hiring new workers at overburdened clinics and other health care facilities across the nation and is deploying mobile medical units to treat additional veterans. The VA believes it will need $300 million over the next 3 months to accelerate medical care for veterans who have been waiting for appointments, a senior agency official said in a conference call with reporters. That effort would include expanding clinics’ hours and paying for some veterans to see non-VA providers. The official said he could not say how many additional health providers the VA would need to improve its service.

re taxpayers getting their money’s worth from elected and appointed public servants? That question should be in the back of the minds of all citizens, all the time. When questions arise over public servants’ conduct of their duties, the question needs to be asked publicly. The sheriff of Ogle County, Michael Harn, recently accepted a new job. As reported May 24 in SV Weekend, Harn was hired to be the full-time maintenance coordinator for a school district based in Forreston, his hometown. The job started June 2. Harn is being paid $17 an hour. He is expected to work 40 hours a week, acting Superintendent Jane Eichman said. It’s a big job. Harn will be in charge of buildings and grounds maintenance for two elementary school buildings and the combined junior and senior high school complex. He will supervise the district’s custodians.

Let ‘temporary’ income tax hike roll back Jan. 1 G.G. GARCIA Amboy

Gov. Pat Quinn, Speaker Michael Madigan, and the Democrats in the state Legislature want to raise the minimum wage, an obvious campaign ploy for the working people’s vote. Ask yourselves, Is this good public policy when unemployment remains

high? The stats indicate unemployment has not decreased. What has the governor done about jobs? We know businesses continue to move out of this state. Do you think employers are going to expand employment, or pick up and go, if the Legislature passes the minimum wage? That’s not all. Quinn, in his annual budget address, said he wants to make the 67 percent income tax increase permanent. The Senate president and

Speaker Madigan immediately endorsed the idea. That’s the Democratic Party leadership for you. Where has the $5.4 billion raised by the increase gone? The taxpayers have not approved this other theft by outright deceit, the permanent extension of the 67 percent “temporary tax hike� making it a permanent increase. Already, these same Democrats proposed spending some of it on a presidential library for Obama. Let him raise his own money for the

Spend, spend, spend. Writing checks for the Illinois taxpayers to cover. Let the [5 percent] “temporary tax� roll back to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1. Tell those Democrats you do not believe in Halloween and their doomsday scenarios.

There were lots and lots of losers during the state legislative session that ended last month. But there were a few winners, so let’s take a look at them. First up, Republican gubernatorial nominee Bruce Rauner. Never before has a political party nominated a gubernatorial candidate who has had more impact on a legislative session than Rauner did this year. The gazillionaire’s unlimited supply of money and his constant threats to “Shake up Springfield� clearly put legislators of both parties on edge all spring – going back to even before he won the primary. The Democrats surely know in their guts that much of what Rauner says about Springfield ain’t false. The longentrenched powers that be stifle innovation and prevent actual compromise. Why wasn’t a scaledback income tax hike ever once debated? Because the top dogs didn’t want to talk about it. End of story. House Speaker Michael Madigan introduced numerous pieces of legislation designed with Rauner in mind, including a tax surcharge on millionaires, which ended up as a non-binding question on the November ballot. Rauner railed repeatedly against extending the income tax hike, and Democrats had to back off. Instead, they opted to punt the ball until after the election. If Rauner had lost the primary to a weaker Republican, odds are that the tax hike extension would have had a better chance of passage. Of course, if Rauner goes on to defeat Gov. Pat Quinn, the massive fiscal hole the General Assembly has created will be his problem – which ultimately makes him a loser as well. Rauner became almost a shadow governor this spring. His hand was seen everywhere. Cook County pension reform failed, many say, because Rauner pushed against it. The $1.1 billion end-of-session road construction/ repair bill was reportedly agreed to by Republicans only after Rauner OK’d it, hoping to please the GOPleaning road builders. SENATE PRESIDENT John Cullerton was another winner. The Senate president’s electoral prowess meant, once again, that he could do pretty much anything he wanted. His 40 Democratic votes out of 59 total Senate seats gave him enough cushion to sit back and watch while Speaker Madigan struggled all year to deal with

his own smaller supermajority. Cullerton stood his ground on the budget when the income tax hike extension fell apart, and he made sure his members’ top interests were taken care of, particularly with a small Medicaid expansion. He pushed back when Madigan tried to muscle through a major change in the way the Abraham L i n c o l n Presidential Library and Museum was administered.

And out of all the Democrats under the dome, he appeared to be the least rattled by Rauner’s primary win. LEGISLATIVE Republicans did pretty well, too. They finally have a candidate at the top of the ticket who will not only give the Democrats a run for their money, but who will ensure that their own candidates have enough cash to compete. But if Rauner wins this November, Republican legislators will have to do something completely different – vote for some pretty distasteful things to support their GOP governor or risk his considerable ire. For more than a decade, the Republicans often sat back and hit their red buttons when it came time to pass important bills. But they’ll finally have to help govern if Rauner is in the mansion. That spectacle right there would almost be worth seeing Rauner win. Note to readers: Rich Miller also publishes Capitol Fax, a daily political newsletter, and CapitolFax.com.

People with hearing loss find support online Dear Abby: As the executive director of the Hearing Loss Association of America, may I suggest that “Mortified at the Dinner Table” (March 2), who wrote about her inlaws’ poor hearing even with hearing aids, connect with one of our 200plus local HLAA chapters at www.hearingloss. org? These member-led groups offer emotional support, camaraderie, communication strategies and techniques for living with hearing loss, both for people who have hearing loss as well as their families and friends. Most chapters also share information about assistive listening devices that link via a telecoil found in most modern hearing

aids that could greatly enhance her in-laws’ hearing around the dinner table. “Mortified” might also want to accompany her in-laws to a hearing aid evaluation visit at an audiologist’s office to learn more about their particular hearing difficulties. There is more

to correcting hearing loss than buying hearing aids. Some users benefit from assistive listening devices or from listening training that can be done at home with a personal computer. By joining HLAA, “Mortified” can receive Hearing Loss Magazine and get the latest information about hearing loss and how to live well with it. – Anna Gilmore Hall Dear Ms. Hall: Thank you for your letter and the information you generously provided. Any reader with hearing loss should check out the HLAA website for a more detailed description of the services it provides. Read on:

Dear Abby: Many people who wear hearing aids find noisy environments problematic. As people age, their ability to understand can be difficult even with hearing aids. As a practicing audiologist, I recommend the following to my patients to help make communication easier. 1. Test hearing annually so hearing aids can be reprogrammed to current hearing levels if necessary. 2. Follow up with the audiologist for regular hearing aid maintenance and care. 3. In restaurants, ask to be seated away from high noise level areas; preferential seating may help. 4. Reserve confidential

discussions for another time and location, which would make them easier for people with hearing loss to understand. – Audiologist in Pennsylvania

me with her, and many have told me they wished their parents were still alive and able to have dinner with them. – Judy in Arizona

Dear Abby: My 91-yearold mother is hard of hearing. I take her out to dinner once a week. I don’t worry about what people around us are thinking. It doesn’t matter what she wants to talk about. I’m just glad she’s able to get out and converse with others. The conversations at tables near us are sometimes so obnoxious that I’m GLAD my mother can’t hear them. People are normally very courteous about helping

Dear Abby: Your advice to “Mortified” was certainly not taking into account the other diners’ feelings that this writer was so admirably describing! Everyone around that table paid for – and deserves – to have a pleasant dining experience too. This includes not being subjected to others’ cellphone conversations, unruly children or excessively loud conversations regardless of their content. – Marianne in Washington

WASHINGTON | STUDENT LOAN REFORM

Obama extends loan repayment relief President: It will ‘make progress,’ but more changes need to be made WASHINGTON (AP) – Aiming to alleviate the burden of student loan debt, President Barack Obama expanded a program Monday that lets borrowers pay no more than 10 percent of their income every month, and threw his support behind more sweeping Senate legislation targeting the issue. Flanked by student loan borrowers at the White House, Obama said the rising costs of college have left America’s middle class feeling trapped. He put his pen to a presidential memorandum that he said could help an additional 5 million borrowers lower their monthly payments.

“I’m only here because this country gave me a chance through education,� Obama said. “We are here today because we believe that in America, no hard-working young person should be priced out of a higher education.� An existing repayment plan Obama announced in 2010 lets borrowers pay no more than 10 percent of their monthly income in payments, but is available only for those who started borrowing after October 2007. Obama’s memo expands that program by opening it to those who borrowed anytime in the past. Obama also announced he is directing the gov-

Surrounded by college students, President Barack Obama signs a Presidential Memorandum on reducing the burden of student loan debt Monday in the East Room of the White House. Obama said the rising costs of college have left America’s middle class feeling trapped. ernment to renegotiate contracts with federal student loan servicers to encourage them to make it easier for borrowers to avoid defaulting on

their loans. And he asked Treasury and Education departments to work with major tax preparers, including H&R Block and the makers of TurboTax,

to increase awareness about tuition tax credits and flexible repayment options available to borrowers. “It’s going to make progress, but not enough,� Obama said. “We need more.� To that end, Obama used the East Room appearance to endorse legislation that would let college graduates with heavy debts refinance their loans. The bill’s chief advocate, Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, joined a half-dozen other Democratic lawmakers as Obama urged Congress to pass the bill. “This should be a nobrainer,� Obama said. The Senate is expected to debate the legislation next week, but it faces significant opposition from Republicans, who dis-

agree with the Democrats’ plan for how to pay for it. The dual strategy – taking executive action while urging Congress to finish the job – has become Obama’s signature playbook this year. Stymied by gridlock as Congress marches toward the midterm elections, he has repeatedly sought ways to go around Congress with modest steps. Under an income-based repayment plan created by Congress, the maximum monthly payment is already set to drop from 15 percent of income to 10 percent in July 2014. But that plan only affects new borrowers. Obama’s “Pay as You Earn� plan uses another part of existing law to offer similar benefits to people who already borrowed to finance their education.

TRACY MORGAN UPDATE

LAS VEGAS

Police probe ties between shooters, Bundy Prosecutor: Trucker Shootings believed in crash hadn’t slept to be an isolated act, authorities say

LAS VEGAS (AP) – Investigators are looking into whether the husband and wife who shot and killed two Las Vegas police officers over the weekend had been at Jerad Miller Cliven Bundy’s Nevada ranch during a standoff earlier this year, police said Monday. Assistant Amanda Sheriff Kevin Miller McMahill said the two suspects, Jerad Miller and his wife, Amanda, had ideology that was along the lines of “militia and white supremacists� and that law enforcement was the “oppressor.� Police believe the shootings were an isolated act and officers were still looking for a motive, McMahill said. Ammon Bundy, one of Cliven Bundy’s sons, said by telephone that it is possible the Millers were at the ranch, the scene of an armed standoff with federal agents, but that “we have not found anybody that recognizes them.� He said thousands of people have come to his father’s ranch over

The two officers killed were Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo. the past several months. The two officers were having lunch Sunday at a pizza buffet in a strip mall when the Millers fatally shot them at point-blank range. The attack at a CiCi’s Pizza killed officers Alyn Beck, 41, and Igor Soldo, 31, who were both husbands and fathers. Jerad Miller yelled, “This is a revolution!� McMahill said. Both suspects fired multiple shots into Beck. They then placed a note, a yellow “Don’t tread on me� flag and a swastika on the officers’ bodies, McMahill said at a news conference Monday. The deadly rampage in the aging shopping center

about 5 miles northeast of the Las Vegas Strip unfolded in a matter of minutes. The suspects then fled on foot to a nearby Walmart, where Jerad Miller fired a single shot upon entering, police said. A patron at the store who carried a firearm confronted Jerad Miller, not realizing that he was accompanied by Amanda Miller, who shot and killed the man, police said. He was identified as 31-year-old Joseph Wilcox of Las Vegas. “Joseph died trying to protect others,� Sheriff Doug Gillespie said. As terrified customers fled the store, the Millers went to the rear and hunkered down for a firefight

with police, McMahill said. Though they exchanged gunfire, ultimately, Amanda Miller shot and killed her husband, and then shot herself, police said. Police were called at 11:22 a.m. to the pizzeria. Shots were reported 5 minutes later at the Walmart. Bundy and his supporters, some of them armed militia members, thwarted a Bureau of Land Management roundup of his cattle near Bunkerville in April. The BLM says Bundy owes more than $1 million in grazing fees and penalties for trespassing without a permit over 20 years, but he refuses to acknowledge federal authority on public lands.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) – The truck driver from Georgia accused of triggering the highway crash that injured Tracy Morgan and killed another comedian hadn’t slept for more than 24 hours before the accident, authorities said Monday as the actor recovered in a New Jersey hospital. Wal-Mart truck driver Kevin Roper was originally expected to make an initial appearance in state court Monday, but a court official said the Jonesboro, Georgia, resident is scheduled in court on Wednesday. It wasn’t clear Monday if Roper had retained an attorney. He remained free after posting $50,000 bond. Authorities said the Win a Harley or $10,000 Cash 1 for $20 3 for $50 7 for $100 Purchase at Dixon Main Street or

Instead, his big rig smashed into the back of Morgan’s chauffeured Mercedes limo bus, killing comedian James “Jimmy Mack� McNair, authorities said. The 45-year-old Morgan, a former “Saturday Night Live� and “30 Rock� cast member, remained in critical condition Monday. Morgan’s spokesman, Lewis Kay, said he was “more responsive� Sunday after having surgery for a broken leg.

FUTURE OF AUTOMAKING

Industry gets serious about lighter vehicles DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) – Roofs made of carbon fiber. Plastic windshields. Bumpers fashioned out of aluminum foam. What sounds like a science experiment could be your next car. While hybrids and electrics may grab the headlines, the real frontier in fuel economy is the switch to lighter materials.

Automakers have been experimenting for decades with lightweighting, as the practice is known, but the effort is gaining urgency with the adoption of tougher gas mileage standards. To meet the government’s goal of nearly doubling average fuel economy to 45 mpg by 2025, cars need to lose some serious pounds.

Lighter doesn’t mean less safe. Cars with new materials are already acing government crash tests. Around 30 percent of new vehicles already have hoods made of aluminum, which can absorb the same amount of impact as steel. Some car companies are teaming up with airplane makers, which have

years of crash simulation data for lightweight materials. Ford gave a glimpse of the future last week with a lightweight Fusion car. The prototype, developed with the U.S. Department of Energy, is about 800 pounds lighter than a typical Fusion thanks to dozens of changes in parts and materials.

Jon Bon Jovi said, “Success is falling nine times and getting up 10.” Success in three no-trump is getting up nine tricks and falling four times. How should South plan to do that in this deal after West leads the spade king? South starts with eight top tricks: one spade, two hearts, four diamonds and one club. The extra winner might come from hearts or clubs. In isolation, in hearts, one would cash dummy’s king, then take a finesse; or, in clubs, take two finesses. The snag is that all of those finesses are into the West hand, the defender who presumably has long and strong spades (to be leading declarer’s known four-card suit). Is

there anything better? Of course. South should duck the first two rounds of spades to find out if the suit is 4-3 or worse. If it is worse, he had bet-

ter run his diamonds to try to bring pressure to bear on West, then probably hope that the heart finesse works. Here, though, spades are 4-3. Now it cannot hurt declarer to take the third spade and return his fourth spade, pitching a heart and a club from the board. If West shifts to a heart or club, it concedes the contract. So let’s assume he safely leads a diamond. South takes the trick on the board and runs the club 10. That loses and West produces another diamond. Now declarer should play off his two top hearts. Here, the queen drops and the contract is home. But if she does not appear, after cashing his last two diamond tricks, South should plan on taking a second club finesse. © 2014 UFS

Taliban vows more violence after attack Group: Assault was revenge for killing leader in U.S. drone strike KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) – The Pakistani Taliban threatened more violence Monday after a 5-hour assault on the nation’s busiest airport killed 29 people – including all 10 attackers – raising a new challenge for a U.S. ally trying to end years of fighting that has claimed thousands of lives. With recently started peace efforts stalled, the cautious government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif may be dragged closer to a decision on whether to take on the militants in earnest across a country with a long history of ambiguity when it comes to dealing with militancy. A further weakening of stability

in the nuclear power whose tribal regions already are a hotbed of foment could ripple to neighboring Afghanistan as international combat forces prepare to withdraw from that country. “Everywhere is a threat,� warned Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan. “Every area is a target, every building is a potential target.� Such an attack in Karachi, Pakistan’s business center, will likely discourage foreign investment at a time when its economy is struggling. The Taliban said the assault on the Jinnah International Airport in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city,

was in revenge for the November killing of the militant group’s leader in a U.S. drone strike. In a telephone call to The Associated Press, the group’s spokesman, Shahidullah Shahid, warned that “such attacks will continue until there is a permanent ceasefire.� The attack began late Sunday when 10 gunmen, some disguised as policemen, stormed into a section of the sprawling airport where a terminal for VIP flights and cargo is located. They opened fire with machine guns and rocket launchers, sparking a battle with security forces that lasted until around dawn.

Sexual assault of student sparks outrage Blackwater guards set for trial after years of delays

Problem has plagued large gatherings in the 3 years following 2011 uprising CAIRO (AP) – A string of sexual assaults on women during celebrations of Egypt’s presidential inauguration – including a mass attack on a 19-year-old student who was stripped in Cairo’s Tahrir Square – prompted outrage Monday as a video emerged purportedly showing the teenager, bloodied and naked, surrounded by dozens of men. Seven men were arrested in connection with the assault and police were investigating 27 other complaints of sexual harassment against women during Sunday’s rallies by tens of thousands of people celebrating Abdel-Fattah elSissi’s inauguration late into the night, security officials said. Sexual violence has

increasingly plagued large gatherings during the past 3 years of turmoil following the 2011 uprising that ousted autocrat Hosni Mubarak, and women’s groups complained Monday that tough new laws have not done enough. Twenty-nine women’s rights groups released a joint statement accusing the government of failing do enough to address the spiraling outbreak of mob attacks on women. The groups said they had documented more than 250 cases of “mass sexual rape and mass sexual assaults� from November 2012 to January 2014. “Combatting that phenomena requires a comprehensive national strategy,� said the statement signed by the women’s groups.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Four former guards from the security firm Blackwater Worldwide are facing trial in the killings of 14 Iraqi civilians and the wounding of 18 others in bloodshed that inflamed anti-American sentiment around the globe. Whether the shootings were self-defense or an unprovoked attack, the carnage of Sept. 16, 2007, was seen by critics of the George W. Bush administration as an illustration of a war gone horribly wrong. A trial in the nearly 7-year-old case is scheduled to begin with jury selection on Wednesday, barring last-minute legal developments. Prosecutors plan to call dozens of Iraqis to testify in what the Justice Department says is likely to be the largest group of foreign

witnesses ever to travel to the U.S. to participate in a criminal trial. The violence at the Nisoor Square traffic circle in downtown Baghdad was the darkest episode of contractor violence during the war in Iraq, becoming one more diplomatic disaster in a war that had many. Iraqi officials, who wanted the guards tried in a local court, were outraged. In the trial, defense lawyers will focus on the guards’ state of mind in a city that was a battleground. Car bombs and insurgents were daily perils for the Blackwater teams. As part of its work with the State Department, Blackwater had a team of 15 intelligence analysts who produced daily threat updates, colored maps of a city riddled with bomb blasts.

Sterling bests Wauconda 3-1 for second straight year at supersectional BY PATRICK MASON pmason@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5550

BARRINGTON – With the biggest out of her young career already on the infield dirt, one that would send Sterling to the state softball tournament, pitcher Lexy Staples could only watch, and she wasn’t worried. The trip to state hinged on second baseman Gabby Sandoval making an acrobatic play, as the hard-hit ball caromed off the side of Sandoval’s glove to give Wauconda a glimmer of hope. But it was short-lived as Sandoval turned around and found the ball before

making a diving backhanded toss to Erin Stroup at first. The out sealed a 3-1 win over the Bulldogs in the 3A Barrington Supersectional on Monday afternoon, to advance Sterling to the state tournament for the second time in as many seasons. “I was so confident in Gabby,” Staples said. “She always finishes those plays, so at that point, I knew we were going to state.” Sandoval highlighted a stout Sterling defense, which was effective at keeping the Bulldogs from taking extra bases in key situations, and ending scoring threats.

With Sterling leading 2-0 in the top of the sixth, Wauconda was prime for a big inning. The Bulldogs had the bases loaded with no outs, but only scored one run. Shannon Long charged in on a single to center and got the ball back to the infield quickly to keep the runner at second from tying the score. “It’s those small things that make a big difference and often go unnoticed,” Sterling coach Becki Edmondson said. “And it’s those things that our team does very well. They’re very fundamentally sound, and we have been all year long.” SEQUEL CONTINUED ON B3

Brad Keselowski races to a second-place finish Sunday in the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa. Debris on his grille cost Keselowski a chance to win, as Dale Earnhardt Jr. passed him late in the race.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Winning, we’ve been told since the beginning of the year, is all that matters now in NASCAR. A win should earn a driver a coveted berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Multiple victories would give a driver valuable bonus points to be used when seeding the Chase field. Brad Keselowski wants those bonus points. He’s already got the one victory needed to put him in the title hunt, and now it’s about separating himself from the field. Yet there seemed to be some questioning, criticism and second-guessing after his failed strategy to win on Sunday at Pocono Raceway. Keselowski dominated the race and seemed headed to an easy win until debris – a hot dog wrapper? a napkin? let’s just call it garbage from the grandstand – somehow found its way to the front grille of Keselowski’s car. It’s a common occurrence in racing, where properly disposing of trash is not a common occurrence, and the results can wreak havoc on a race car. That’s the position Keselowski found himself in during the closing laps at Pocono, where his shot at what had seemed to be a sure victory was suddenly in question. Debris on the grille causes engines to overheat, and drivers don’t have a ton of time to figure out a way to knock the garbage off the nose. As temperatures rise, the engine begins to lose some of its power, and if it gets hot enough, the engine will blow. From Keselowski’s view inside the cockpit of the No. 2 Ford, he couldn’t win the race with the debris on his car. Either the engine was going to break, or Dale Earnhardt Jr. was going to run him down.

“I think I was going to get passed, because I was really down on power down the straightaway,� Keselowski said. “I don’t know. I think so, but it’s hard to say.� So Keselowski tried to get the debris off his car by running behind Danica Patrick in the hope that air coming off her lapped car would blow the garbage away. Only she didn’t seem to know what he was doing, and appeared to try to get out of the way of the leader. He misjudged his move, lost momentum and Earnhardt chased him down for the lead. Keselowski’s only hope was to catch Earnhardt and get close enough to the new leader to free the debris so that he could he could attempt to get back to the front. It didn’t work. Earnhardt cruised to the victory, Keselowski settled for second, and there was plenty of head-scratching about his decision. The second-guessing from fans and commentators is ludicrous. In a winning-is-everything environment, Keselowski is being criticized for trying to win. Even Earnhardt conceded Keselowski did what he had to do. “I don’t know what his temperatures were, but they must have been very, very hot for Brad to do that,� Earnhardt said. “That had to have been the toughest choice for him. I felt really bad for Brad to be honest in that particular

instance to see him in such a situation that he had to be that desperate. “He’s the kind of guy that would have just put his foot in it and tried to make the motor last. But apparently it was just more than he could ask for the engine to do.� Keselowski saw he had no other option than to try to force the issue. “I was trying to do something to help my car out, and I knew it [the engine] was going to break, and I was going to get passed,� he said. “I was trying to make whatever move I could do to help clean it off.� His car made it to the end of the race. Why not just roll the dice and push it until the engine blows? In Keselowski’s educated opinion, his fate was inevitable. “We weren’t going to make it,� he shrugged. “It was already starting to [blow]. It is just one of those deals.� The circumstances surrounding Tony Stewart’s botched race Sunday are different from Keselowski’s situation. But the motive – winning – remains the same. Stewart had cycled into the lead with 48 laps to go when he was caught speeding on pit road, costing him a shot at his first win of the season. Stewart was pushing hard in an effort to make it back to Victory Lane. “100 percent driver error,� Stewart said. “Great race car, just the driver screwed it up this week.� Keselowski also admits he made an error in how he attempted to get the debris off his car. Mistakes happen. The driver and the team pick themselves up and move on to the next one, as both Keselowski and Stewart indicated they’d do. Since when, though, do we fault them for doing what they thought was needed to win? It is the only thing that matters anymore.

ARRINGTON – One way or the other, Karlie Mellott or Kayla Wedl were going to be making an unwanted trip to Pennsylvania this weekend. Mellott is a senior shortstop for the Sterling softball team, while Wedl is a sophomore pitcher for Wauconda. Their teams played on Monday in the Class 3A Barrington Supersectional. For the second consecutive year, the Golden Warriors won a 3-1 decision against the Bulldogs at the supersectional level. The reward for that is a trip to the state tournament, which begins Friday in East Peoria. Wedl, meanwhile, will be heading to Pennsbury, Pa., a suburb of Philadelphia, for an AAU tournament. She, like Mellott, is a member of the Illinois Chill 18U team. While Mellott will be trying to help her high school team win a state championship, Wedl will be Chilling in Pennsylvania. “I talked to Karlie after the game, and wished her good luck at state,” Wedl said, “and she wished me good luck in Pennsylvania. I wish it was the other way around.” Every other week from August through February, Mellott would make a 2-hour drive to Northbrook to practice with the Chill. They played in a handful of tournaments in the fall and winter months, and the season will once again fire up this summer. She’s more than happy to delay that experience, however, for one with her high school teammates. “It’s a team win,” Mellott said. “I know I’ve said that before, but we really played well today up and down the lineup. This is all just so exciting for us.”

Mellott is one of the few veterans left over from last year’s state team, and couldn’t be happier to be making a return trip with a new cast of characters. “I knew we had a lot of talent going in,” Mellott said, “but there were a lot of new faces. We put it together, especially the last four or five games. We’ve really come together.”

O’Bannon takes stand in NCAA lawsuit Former UCLA star says basketball took precedence over academics BY TIM DAHLBERG !03PORTS7RITER

OAKLAND, Calif. – The battle to give top football and basketball players a cut of the billions of dollars flowing into college athletics began in earnest with former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon taking the stand in federal court to describe how he spent long hours working on his game, and as few as possible on his grades. The lead plaintiff in a landmark antitrust suit against the NCAA said his goal at UCLA wasn’t to get a degree, but to get 2 years of college experience before being drafted into the NBA. “I was an athlete masquerading as a student,” O’Bannon said Monday. “I was there strictly

to play basketball. I did basically the minimum to make sure I kept my eligibility academically, so I could continue to play.” O’Bannon, who led UCLA to a national championship in 1995, said he spent 40 to 45 hours a week either preparing for games or playing them, and only about 12 hours a week on his studies. The testimony came as a trial that could upend the way college sports are regulated opened, 5 years after the suit was filed. O’Bannon and 19 other plaintiffs are asking U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken for an injunction that would allow athletes to sell the rights to their own images in television broadcasts and rebroadcasts.

Trujillo gets Warriors’ bats going in fourth SEQUEL

CONTINUED FROM B1

Staples got out of the jam by inducing a ground ball to Karlie Mellott at short, and teamed with Sandoval at second to turn an inning-ending double play to preserve the lead. The Golden Warriors Nadia Trujillo broke open a scoreless game in the bottom half of the fourth inning when she hit her first home run of the season – and her first in over 3 years – on a 1-1 pitch. She sent it over the center-field fence scoring Mellott, who reached on an error the batter before, to take a 2-0 lead. The hit

breathed life into the Warriors, who had struggled to make solid contact against Wauconda pitcher Kayla Wedl, who was tough when she hit her spots on the inner half of the plate. “It honestly just came out of nowhere,” Trujillo said. “I didn’t think it was going to go over, and I’m pretty happy it did.” The key to figuring out Wedl was a team-effort, as the Sterling batters would share bits of information on what the pitcher was throwing. It took a little patience and a simple approach. “She struck out a lot of people,” Trujillo said of Wedl, who finished with

six strikeouts and no walks. “All I was thinking at that point was just seeing the ball and making contact.” Wedl was tough the first time through the order as she didn’t let a ball out of the infield except for Mellott’s single through the left side in the first inning. Sandoval, the team’s No. 9-hitter, was the first to hit Wedl hard when she collected her first extra-base hit of the season, a triple down the left-field line. “It felt amazing off the bat,” Sandoval said. “I just heard the coaches yelling at me to look three.” Sterling added another run in the bottom of the sixth when Abri Hale hit

a soft grounder back to Wedl. Wedl charged in and tried to throw out Mellott who ran home from third, but Mellott slid around the tag and got a piece of the back of home plate with her left hand to take a 3-1 lead. Staples started off three innings by walking the leadoff batter, but was able to work out of jams as the Bulldogs couldn’t figure her out. Staples allowed three hits in the win while striking out two. “As the game went on, I knew I couldn’t make a mistake,” Staples said. “But I always know my team will pick me up, and they just did it again. It’s unbelieveable.”

NEW YORK – Jonathan Quick and the Los Angeles Kings are finishing off the New York Rangers in a big hurry. The Connecticut native, who grew up a fan of the Rangers and 1994 Stanley Cup-winning goalie Mike Richter, had his best game of the finals by far. He made 32 saves and put the Kings on the cusp of another coronation with a 3-0 victory over New York in Game 3 on Monday night. Los Angeles escaped with two overtime wins at home, and then took complete command inside Madison Square Garden to take a 3-0 series edge. The Kings took their first lead of the series on Jeff Carter’s goal in the final second of the first period, and then stretched the edge to three goals in the second – something the Rangers failed to do in California. New York is facing elimination Wednesday night in Game 4. While there has been only one comeback from a 3-0 hole in the finals, the Kings erased such a deficit in the first round

Attention turns to Wimbledon Nadal leaves to practice on grass right after French Open win BY HOWARD FENDRICH !04ENNIS7RITER

PARIS – His ninth French Open title behind him, Rafael Nadal already is thinking ahead to what’s next: Wimbledon. That’s why he planned to waste no time and go directly from France to Germany on Monday to get ready to play in a grass-court tuneup tournament. Nadal’s collection of 14 Grand Slam titles, only three shy of Roger Federer’s record for men, includes two championships at the All England Club. But the most recent came in 2010, and Nadal’s past two trips to Wimbledon were quite brief: He lost in the second round in 2012, and the first round in 2013. “I want to try to play well again in Wimbledon,� the No. 1-ranked Nadal declared Sunday

Jose Abreu hit a tworun homer in Chicago’s three-run fifth inning, and the White Sox snapped a three-game losing streak with a 6-5 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Monday at U.S. Cellular. Gordon Beckham had three hits, as Chicago bounced back from a sluggish trip to Southern California. The White Sox took two of three from the Dodgers before getting swept in a weekend series against the Angels. Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and Eugenio Suarez homered for AL Central-leading Detroit, which has dropped seven of nine. Cabrera went 2-for-4, while serving as the designated hitter after leaving Sunday night’s 5-3 loss to Boston with left hamstring tightness.

Henrik Lundqvist was hardly at fault on the goals, and finished with 12 saves. But Quick was perfect. He made a brilliant save with his stick blade to deny Derick Brassard with 8:40 left in the second, shortly after a Rangers power play. That stop came on the heels of Brassard having two chances during the advantage off a rebound of Brad Richards’ shot. Brassard’s first attempt was blocked, and the second was stopped by Quick. The Kings goalie was also on his toes just 8 seconds into the third period when Chris Kreider came in alone, but was stopped in tight.

Astrograph Make a commitment Tuesday, June 10, 2014 If you make a commitment to improve your life, don’t listen to those who disapprove of your plans. There is no need to defend your actions to anyone. Those who love and understand your determination will back you and help you celebrate your success. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -It’s time to start living a healthier lifestyle. Let others discover how talented and resilient you are. Without being boastful, showcase what you can do when you’re properly motivated. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can gain a valuable perspective if you surround yourself with young people. Keep your plans flexible so you can be ready for any challenge that comes your way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A family dispute will weigh heavily on your mind. Get together with the person causing the problem and go over the issues rationally. Your relationship will improve once you make amends. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A friendship will escalate into a prosperous partnership. Gather as many allies as you

can and formulate a plan that has the potential to yield mutual success. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Even a small amount of your time can make a difference to someone in need. Volunteer your time and effort, but don’t forget that charity begins at home. Someone close to you may also need assistance. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Your high energy will work in your favor today. Use your awesome creativity to move forward on the many projects you face. Don’t stop until you reach your destination. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -Legal, governmental or official matters should be dealt with swiftly. Be clear about your responsibilities, and complete documents or applications thoroughly. Sticking to rules and regulations will help you avoid setbacks. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The project you have in mind will end up being more difficult than you imagined. Don’t be deterred, but make sure that you can call in some assistance if needed.

PUZZLE ENTHUSIASTS: Get more puzzles in AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Erratic behavior or unpredictable displays of emotion will damage your reputation at work. Keep a cool head on your shoulders and perform your tasks diligently and quietly. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You are due for a dramatic change regarding how or where you live. A number of possibilities are waiting to be discovered. Take a trip to an intriguing destination. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are full of energy, and nothing will hamper your abilities. The more ventures you take on, the more satisfaction you will receive as the day unfolds. A financial gain is apparent. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You’ll be feeling overworked and underappreciated. Consider taking a break. Getting together with a close friend will help you relax and forget your worries.
