HARMON | HOME FOR SHOEMAKER FAMILY
Shoemaker ‘shocked’ to learn church was building home Abiding Word Church had planned to build for Missouri family BY MATT MENCARINI email@example.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5529
HARMON – Five American flags stood on a plot of land in Harmon Saturday afternoon, marking the spot where a home will be built for Michael Shoemaker and his family. Shoemaker, 26, is a U.S. Army veteran who was injured in Afghanistan in 2012. He and his wife, Brittany, 26, have four children: Michael, 7, Braden, 5, Hannah, 3, and Harper, 3 months. The Abiding Word Church in Sterling will build the home

Scott Porter, as part of the church’s disaster relief ministry, which has sent church members to Missouri, Oklahoma and Washington, Illinois in the wake of devastating tornadoes. The church was planning on using the money for the Shoemakers’ home to build a home for a family in Joplin, Missouri, Porter said. “That kind of fell through. We were disappointed,” he said. “We kind of shifted gears and
thought, Why not help someone here?” About 18 months ago, after the plans to build the Joplin home were abandoned, Michael Evan Moore, a Shoemaker church member, was driving on state Route 2 by Veterans Memorial Park in Dixon while Charlie Thomas, of the Dixon VFW Post, and some others were doing some work at the park. Moore stopped and asked if Thomas knew of any local veterans the church could build a home for.

About Friends of the Park
CONTINUED FROM A1
In 2004, Friends of the Park began seeking state funds to help pay for the project. In 2008, the Morrison City Council agreed to help get a grant. Easements from three landowners were obtained to build the trail on the west side of Crosby. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources agreed to pony up up to $312,560, and also provided an $11,500 grant from its snowmobile trail establishment fund. The city was required to pay 20 percent of the IDNR grant; Friends of the Parks offered to raise that share, and did, through donations and fundraisers. Then construction bids

MORRISON I PATH TO THE PARK
Dedication, reception set for Thursday BY KATHLEEN A. SCHULTZ firstname.lastname@example.org EXT
MORRISON â€“ A grand opening dedication and reception for the Morrison-Rockwood Recreational Trail begins at noon Thursday with a ribbon-cutting at the trailhead, at the intersection of Crosby and Norrish roads. (Parking will be available at the Mount Pleasant Township Garage and along Crosby.) Morrison Mayor Everett Pannier and Sen. Mike Jacobs, D-East Moline, will dedicate the trail, which members of the public, and their dogs, are invited to walk, run, or bike. Soft drinks, light snacks and doggie treats will be provided. Jill Dykhoff, a staffer for U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, Ed Barsotti, executive director of the League of Illinois Bicyclists, George Bellovics, a state Department of Natural Resources landscape architect, and Stan Mitick of Friends of the Parks will speak. Immediately after the dedication, Rockford Park District representatives will present a birds of prey program featur-
ing an American kestrel, a great horned owl, and a barred owl, all rehabilitated from injuries and deemed unable to survive in the wild. Also starting at noon, kids can register to win a free bike. One boy and one girl will take home a free bike and a helmet. Winners will be announced after the birds of prey program. Also that day, about 200 bicyclists from the League of Illinois Bicyclists Grand Illinois Trail and Parks tour will be traveling through Morrison, and will make a pit stop at the dedication. The course takes them on the new recreational trail, over the covered bridge, and on to Morrison High School, where theyâ€™ll camp for the night. The 12th annual GITAP ride, coordinated by the League of Illinois Bicyclists and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, introduces bicycle tourists to the rural roads, trails, and towns of the Grand Illinois Trail. Each year, the ride tackles a different section of the 500-mile northern Illinois loop. This yearâ€™s tour started
Sunday and ends Friday in Oregon, with overnight stops in Freeport, Galena (two nights), Savanna, and Morrison. Go to www.bikelib.org for information on the ride. Ahead of the events, Friends of the Park has installed an interactive art exhibit on the trail. â€œForest of My Three Wordsâ€? encourages visitors to express themselves in just three words on a length of ribbon, then tie their ribbons on one of five bamboo poles that make up the â€œgrove.â€? The ribbonsâ€™ unique, personal messages â€“ which could range from the humorous to the profound, from deeply personal to public outcry â€“ will create a collective voice of the Morrison community, organizers said. The temporary exhibit, an idea borrowed from Atlanta, Georgia, artist Misao Cates, will be in place until after the annual Paint The Town festivities. All are encouraged to revisit the trail during that time to witness the change and growth of the work, and participate as many times as they would like.

Friends of the Park has installed an interactive art exhibit on the Morrison-Rockwood Recreational Trail, the first segment of which is completed and open to the public. â€œForest of My Three Wordsâ€? encourages visitors to express themselves in just three words on a length of ribbon, then tie their ribbons on one of the five bamboo poles that make up a â€œgrove.â€? The temporary exhibit will be available for several weeks; it is part of Thursdayâ€™s trail dedication festivities.
Gov. Quinn signs law banning police ticket quotas in state CHICAGO (AP) â€“ Police ticket quotas are now banned in Illinois under legislation signed into law Sunday by Gov. Pat Quinn, a move supporters say will help restore public trust in law enforcement. The law took effect immediately and applies
to all local, county and state police departments. It says municipalities and police departments cannot require officers to issue a certain number of citations in a certain period of time, and that the number of tickets that officers write cannot be used as part of
their performance evaluations. â€œLaw enforcement officers should have discretion on when and where to issue traffic citations and not be forced to ticket motorists to satisfy a quota system,â€? Quinn said in a written statement, adding that the
More road closures expected this week
law will improve safety and working conditions for police officers. The bill was sponsored by state Sen. Andy Manar of Bunker Hill and state Rep. Jay Hoffman of Swansea, both Democrats. â€œArbitrary quotas on the number of tickets
that have to be issued by police officers undermines the public trust in the police departmentsâ€™ priorities,â€? Hoffman said. â€œBy eliminating these quotas, we can restore that trust and ensure that police officers are free to do their job protecting the public.â€?
DIXON â€“ As work on the downtown streetscape continues, more road closures are expected for this week. According to information from the engineering firms: On the east side of the project, work on the retaining wall on Ottawa Avenue will continue, in addition to storm and water service installation in various areas of the project. On Tuesday, the south side of First Street, from Galena to Crawford avenues, will be closed for sawcutting. Also on First Street, sidewalk installation will begin between Galena and Hennepin avenues. On the west side of the project, work will continue on South Peoria Avenue, between First and Third streets, including curb and gutter installation between Second and Third streets. On Peoria Avenue, between First and Second streets, work is expected to include the removal of roadway pavement and portions of sidewalks to install water mains, which will require the east side of the street to be closed. Short-term closures of the west side of the street will be done as necessary, according to information provided by the engineering firms.

OREGON â€“ In the early morning hours of June 12, 2014, the world lost the wonderful soul of Debra Susan Ford (Dillow), 56, who succumbed gracefully to a battle with breast cancer. Born at Sterling Community General on July 27, 1957, to Burton Dillow and Elizabeth June Dillow (McCabe), Debra went on to attain lofty heights as an A-student as she graduated from Rock Falls Township High School in 1975. Aspiring from an early age to become a nurse, she achieved that goal in her early twenties with an L.P.N. degree, after graduating from Sauk Valley College in 1989 and eventually earned high honors as a registered nurse, a career at which she excelled for more than 2 decades, working many years alongside Dr. Gregory Reckamp at the KSB Clinic in Oregon. Debra was married in August 1980 to a successful general contractor, Michael Ford of Franklin Grove, Illinois, who preceded her in death in December 2010. Their marriage produced three children, one daughter, BriAnn, having passed away during infancy. She is survived by two children, Lane Ford and Caitlyn Ford (Springer) and one granddaughter, Nellie, currently 7 months old, a pure joy to Deb until the end. Debra will be remembered for her kindhearted nature and as a person who shunned the glow of her own achievements. She was boundlessly hardworking, a tireless caretaker with an incomparable capacity to share equally the despair and joys of others. She stood by everyone in her life through any emotional or physical crisis, absorbing the depth of every passage.
Ruby M. Raymond
Over the years, Debra cultivated a large extended family of patients she grew to love, and welcomed in the family members of her late husband as her own. Away from her career as a nurse, she was a great lover of animals and was an amazingly accomplished gardener, two traits she apparently inherited from her father, the late Burton Dillow, who passed away at 86, in July 2011. But her overriding passion was books. A voracious reader, she was rarely without a book in her quiet evenings at home. Although there will be no more telephone calls to her, the conversations her friends have had with her over the years will undoubtedly live on forever. There are certain people whose names set up a clamor in oneâ€™s heart; Debra Susan Ford (Dillow) was undeniably one of those. She is survived by her mother, Elizabeth Dillow, 84, of Rock Falls; brothers, Dennis Dillow, 66, of Templeton, California, and Lonnie Dillow, 62, of Sterling; daughter, Caitlyn; son, Lane, and longtime friend and companion, Tim Winge. Special thanks and acknowledgement to her late husbandâ€™s family: Barbara Ford, Debra Adkins (Ford), Ron (Dawn) Ford and Gerry (Kathleen) Ford for providing unwavering support and companionship. Debra wished a memorial to be established in her name with any condolences and funds going to her children. Please send to 1122 C Jenny Dr., Sycamore, IL 60178. A memorial to celebrate her life is tentatively scheduled to be held on July 11, 2014, at Centennial Park in Rock Falls.

Kasem was an island of calm in swirl of pop music Longtime radio personality dies LOS ANGELES (AP) â€“ In pop culture, Casey Kasem was as sweet and dependable as a glass of warm milk and a plate of chocolate chip cookies, which only made the ugliness of his last few years of life seem more bizarre and tragic. The radio host of â€œAmerican Top 40â€? and voice of animated television characters like Scooby-Dooâ€™s sidekick Shaggy died Sunday morning at a hospital in Gig Harbor, Washington. He was 82. He suffered from a form of dementia, and his three adult children from his first wife fought a bitter legal battle with Kasemâ€™s second wife, Jean, over control of his health care in his final months. That made Kasem a fixture on news outlets that feed on the sleazier side of celebrity life at a time when it wasnâ€™t clear whether he was aware of it or able to understand. This wouldnâ€™t seem all that remarkable for a badbehaving pop star or actor who shed spouses with the frequency of changing characters. But this was
Casey Kasem, whose work epitomized the gentler, romantic side of pop culture, of a time when stars were admired for their celebrity and worshipped for their talent. â€œAmerican Top 40,â€? with Kasemâ€™s soft, homey voice counting down the hits, was a refuge from shock jocks or the screaming big-city radio voices. It was dependable, broadcast on some 1,000 stations at its peak, so if you were driving in Connecticut or Kansas, California or Kentucky, you could always take a measure of the pop charts with Casey. Kasem weaved stories around the songs, anecdotes about interactions with fans or gee-whiz tales about how stars got their starts. Seldom was heard a discouraging word, unless it was a starting point for a narrative about coming back from hardship, the darkness before the dawn. Interspersed in the countdowns were the long-distance dedications, songs played for a long-lost or distant lover in the hope a heart would be stirred. Youâ€™d wince at some of the hokey song selections, but only the truly cynic would laugh at the emotion that
spilled out of the letters Kasem read. At the end of the show, always, would come Kasemâ€™s signature words of advice: â€œKeep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars.â€? On the first â€œAmerican Top 40â€? in July 1970, Kasem counted down to Three Dog Nightâ€™s â€œMama Told Me Not to Comeâ€? at the No. 1 spot. As the years went on, Kasem progressed through disco and punk, arena rock and rap. All were welcome
under Caseyâ€™s big tent. Kasem was of Lebanese descent, born in Detroit as Kemal Amin Kasem, and he spoke out on issues promoting greater understanding of ArabAmericans throughout his life. He made his name as a disc jockey, and when his career blossomed in the Los Angeles area, he took on other voice work. He was Robin in the animated â€œBatmanâ€? series. He once said his work on â€œScooby-Dooâ€? would outlast anything he did.

STERLING I CGH EXPANSION PROGRESSES
Expanded department opens Thursday More than half of new treatment rooms ready for use in emergency department STAFF REPORT email@example.com EXT
STERLING â€“ More room in the emergency room. In the whole department, in fact. Thatâ€™s what CGH Medical Center patients will see when the first phase of the $8.6 million Emergency Department expansion opens at 2 a.m. Thursday at the cityowned hospital at 100 E. LeFevre. More than half of the
new treatment rooms â€“ 13 of 24 â€“ will be ready to use, CGH marketing specialist Rebecca Green said in a news release Friday. When finished, the project, which broke ground Oct. 3, will give the department 23 private treatment rooms, a trauma room with two or three beds, six patient treatment bays, three triage rooms, and a streamlined patient registration and triage process.
For more information 'O TO WWWCGHMC COM%$ OR CALL FOR UPDATES AND MORE INFORMATION Space will more than double, from 10,000 to 21,000 square feet. â€œWeâ€™re excited to open this first phase of construction,â€? Shirley Wolford, Emergency Department director, said in the release. â€œWe will be one step closer to alleviating the overcrowding problem seen in our current ED, while also being
able to provide more personalized, private care and comfort for our patients.â€? According to the release: Next, the ED patient entrance and parking will move to what is now the east entrance. Once inside, patients will be directed to one of two temporary registration offices. Because triage and bedside registration will take place within the new ED, the registration offices will take only a patientâ€™s name and date of birth. Patients and family members then will be
shown to the temporary ED lobby. For security purposes, the new ED will have secured access, patientsâ€™ visitors will be limited, and the double doors on LeFevre will be locked after 8 p.m. Visitors entering the ED entrance after 8 p.m. will be issued a visitorâ€™s badge and will be allowed to use the public elevators. For construction purposes, a temporary wall will be built in the hallway leading to the CGH lab, although access to the lab still will be available.
The rest of the project will take about a year to complete; construction is scheduled to be done by next summer, the release said. The expansion, which is being paid for by debt restructuring and the issuance of bonds, is much needed, hospital officials have said. The emergency department had 4,000 visits in 1971, between 14,000 to 17,000 visits in 1993, when the current space opened, and nearly 30,000 visits in 2012. The expansion is designed with 40,000 visits a year in mind.
Prairie chickens an election issue Historic flag
Costs of flying birds in rubbing some wrong way
NEWTON (AP) â€“ A program to boost Illinoisâ€™ declining population of greater prairie chickens is becoming an electionyear issue, with some turning the bird into a feathered symbol of government financial waste. And like any other discussion of spending in Illinois, the stateâ€™s poor financial health plays a leading role. State Sen. Bill Mitchell, a Republican from Forsyth, has complained about what he sees as the absurdity of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources flying prairie chickens from Kansas. And last week, Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner used a crate of chickens â€“ they werenâ€™t prairie chickens, but domestic hens â€“ as a prop to complain about spending. But is the criticism fair? Hereâ€™s a closer look at the DNRâ€™s 3-year, $519,230 program to try to revive the birdsâ€™ population in Illinois.
The birds Greater prairie chickens, known for the loud cackling and the booming noises males make as they dance around females to try to win mates, once numbered in the millions in Illinois in Abraham Lincolnâ€™s time â€“ before the birdsâ€™ grassland habitat was mostly plowed under for farming. While their population in some other states is large enough to allow them to be legally hunted, theyâ€™re now endangered in Illinois, living only on the parcels of
Last flag to fly on USS Whiteside being presented before meeting BY CHRISTI WARREN firstname.lastname@example.org EXT
Bob Gillespie (left), a natural resources coordinator with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, and biologist Scott Simpson are pictured earlier this month at the Prairie Ridge State Natural Area near Newton. They are part of a project to try to build up Illinoisâ€™ dwindling population of greater prairie chickens by bringing in birds from Kansas. But some have objected to the cost of transporting the birds by air. south-central land that make up the Prairie Ridge State Natural Area, near Newton in Jasper County and Kinmundy in Marion County. Before the reintroduction of 91 birds from Kansas this spring, the population between the two sites had fallen to about 40. Illinois has the easternmost population of the birds, DNR biologist Scott Simpson said, â€œso we get [tourists] from all the way to the East Coast.â€? The program aims to create a viable, selfsustaining population, â€œsomewhere possibly between a hundred and 500 total birds,â€? Simpson said.
The objections Raunerâ€™s chickens were an eye-catching symbol at his Thursday news conference. Theyâ€™ve even
inspired a parody Twitter account, @RaunerChicken. â€œWe have spent over $100,000 flying chickens into our state. We have plenty of chickens in our state and certainly, if we were desperate for more, we could drive them,â€? Rauner said. State Sen. Mitchellâ€™s objections to flying the birds were part of his larger, ongoing complaint that the Illinois Department of Transportation should not even have a small fleet of airplanes.
The real costs This is the first of 3 planned years for the program, with a total budget of $519,230 budget, DNR officials said, adding that none of the money comes from income taxes or other funding sources that could be used to
address the stateâ€™s financial troubles. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Serviceâ€™s State Wildlife Grant Program is providing $337,500, which must be used to develop and protect wildlife populations and is generated by taxes paid by outdoors enthusiasts on guns, boats and fishing equipment, according to DNR spokesman Chris Young and agency documents. The state share of the program is $181,730, all from the stateâ€™s wildlife and fish fund which, like the federal money, doesnâ€™t rely on income taxes, Young said. It is generated through the sale of hunting and fishing licenses and must be used for wildlife- and habitat-related projects. The Audubon Society says it will add another $30,000.
Shoemaker paid for land and foundation HOME

He did. And it was Michael Shoemaker. â€œI was really shocked,â€? Shoemaker said. â€œThere are a lot of programs that build houses for soldiers. Iâ€™ve tried signing up for more than a dozen of them. Thereâ€™s so much red tape to go through. â€œTheyâ€™re so hard to sign up for, and nine out of 10 of them want you to have a Purple Heart. I donâ€™t have a Purple Heart, because [my injury] was considered an accident.â€?
While serving in Kandahar, Afghanistan, in 2012, Shoemaker was injured when he and several other soldiers were moving ammunition at a ammunition supply depot. The ammunition exploded, killing 20-year-old David Taylor of Dixon, Kentucky, and injuring six others, including Shoemaker. His right arm and both legs were injured, and doctors had to remove metal debris from his head. Shoemaker underwent a cranioplasty â€“ an operation involving the skull â€“ and several

months of rehabilitation. Shoemakerâ€™s 3-monthold daughter, Harper, was given Taylor as middle name, Shoemaker said, to honor his friend that was killed. The home will be about 2,100 square feet, Moore said, and have three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. Shoemaker paid for the land and the foundation, he said, and even sold his truck to do so. The church and its congregation will begin work
on the home soon and hope to finish before the weather gets too hot. There are church members with carpentry and construction backgrounds who have volunteered to help, Porter said, and just recently a someone came forward to provide electrical fixtures and lightbulbs for free, and others have volunteered to do all the painting. â€œPeople are just coming out of the woodwork,â€? Porter said.

MORRISON â€“ Built and commissioned in 1944, the USS Whiteside carried men during World War II and the Korean War. Next week, the final flag to fly on the vessel is being brought home to the shipâ€™s namesake: Whiteside County. The man bringing that flag is Arlo Ericson, who served on the ship for 16 months. Heâ€™s making the drive all the way from his town of St. Joseph, Missouri â€“ a town that straddles the Missouri River, just north of Kansas City â€“ to present the county with the flag, as well as other memorabilia from the ship. There will be a reception for Ericson before Tuesday nightâ€™s Whiteside County Board meeting in Morrison, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Morrison community room at the library, with the board meeting to follow in its usual place at 6:30 p.m. Ericson, 86, is mak-

Heâ€™s been putting together reunions for the men who served on the Whiteside for about 10 years now, and part of that duty also means keeping the flag that was flying on the ship before it was decommissioned in 1958. Originally, the flag was given to the man who had served on the ship for the longest amount of time, but since he passed away, itâ€™s been passed along. â€œIâ€™m gonna bring the flag up, and Iâ€™ve got some pictures,â€? Ericson said during an interview from his home in Missouri. â€œI think it should all be in Whiteside. Thatâ€™s where it belongs.â€?
Illinois investors jump into marijuana business SPRINGFIELD (AP) â€“ Investors around Illinois are jockeying for positions in the marijuana business as they wait for the stateâ€™s new medical marijuana law to kick in. And some of them are politically connected. According to the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises, Sam Borek has reserved at least three dozen marijuana-related business names. Borek was a college roommate of the legislator who sponsored the law, Democratic state Rep. Lou Lang of Skokie. Those companies have names like Illinois Medi-
cal Marijuana Sales Inc., Illinois Cannabis Realty Inc. and Cannabis Medical Centers of Illinois Inc. And then thereâ€™s David Rosen of Chicago. He was Gov. Pat Quinnâ€™s chief fundraiser in 2010 and also raised money for Hillary Rodham Clinton and Al Gore. Rosen has filed paperwork to open a medical marijuana business in Nevada called Waveseer. But heâ€™s registered that business name in Illinois, too. Rosenâ€™s investors, according to state records from Nevada, include a number of Quinn donors.

!ID THE SUFFERERS AT *OHNSTOWN A meeting of citizens assembled in the Council rooms Thursday afternoon pursuant to the call of Mayor Lawrence. Earnest and appealing speeches were made by various citizens present, in regard to the pressing need for aid at Johnstown. [The Johnstown Flood occurred in Pennsylvania on May 31, 1889; more than 2,200 people were killed.] On motion of Capt. J.W. Niles, Mayor Lawrence appointed committees to make an immediate canvass of the different wards of the city, and solicit subscriptions of cash. It was moved and carried that subscription papers be placed at each of the banks, and at the drug stores of Mr. D.B. Strickler and Mr. A.R. Hendricks. The committees were instructed to begin their work at once and complete same by next Monday morning, so a report can be made to treasurer, Mayor Lawrence, at 9 oâ€™clock on that day. There is pressing need of clothing at Johnstown, nearly all of the sufferers having escaped with only what was on their backs. Many are almost without apparel. Any article of clothing in good repair that can be spared that you wish to donate to the sufferers may be left at the office of the Sterling Water Company. Col. Watson will immediately box it up, and ship it to Johnstown. The railroad and express companies will transport same without charge.

Debris fills a street in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, after a May 31, 1889, catastrophic flood caused by a dam failure struck the town. More than 2,200 people were killed. A Gazette editorial on June 14, 1889, called on local residents to give generously to help victims of the flood. The condition of affairs at Johnstown is without a parallel for misery, suffering and destitution, in this country. Thousands had their all suddenly swept from them and barely escaped with their lives. They are now in need of immediate succor. It is the duty of our people to contribute toward their relief and to do so at once. Other cities around us are sending liberal amounts of money, and our people should meet the committees with open purses, so Sterling can do the same. Besides the caring for the living at Johnstown, a vast sum of money is needed to clear away the debris. Besides the broken, crushed houses, there are thousands of bodies wedged into this mass. If allowed to remain there long, the hot weather will cause them to decay, and finally cause a pestilence. It will take 10,000 men 90 days to complete this work, and at $2.50 per day, will require two and onehalf millions of money.
Sterling should raise at least $500 for this cause.
#OULDNT GET THERE Mr. and Mrs. Walter Campbell left last Saturday for Lancaster, Pa. When they reached Pittsburgh, they found that the railroads of the state were so badly crippled by the recent flood at Johnstown and along the river that it was impossible to reach the place they desired without making a great detour and remaining at stations some time. They thought it best to return home at once.

"OON TO DRINKERS The Peoria Journal says that [Thomas] Edison is perfecting what will be a boon to drinking men. He calls it the toddygraph. It is a machine so constructed that after a man has taken one drink, he can breathe in it, and afterward the effects of the drink can be reproduced as many times as he chooses by applying his lips to a small tube and turning a crank. A man with a toddygraph concealed under his coat has no excuse for going out between acts when he takes his wife to the theater.

WASHINGTON â€“ I did it! Mere hours after hearing Hillary Clinton say she and her husband had to exploit their public service by earning millions and millions and millions of dollars to pay their mortgages by paid public speeches and memoirs, my finger clicked on â€œbuyâ€? on my e-reader. Disbelieving that her new book, â€œHard Choices,â€? could possibly be as self-serving and boring as critics described, I paid $14.99 to see for myself. After all, I have interviewed her, drunk wine with her, traveled with her in such exotic places as China and Ohio, and followed her political ambitions for decades. Believe me, the book is a self-serving travelogue. It was written by three ghost writers who stuffed it with as many facts as they could find. If you have followed the Hillary saga at all, there is nothing in this book that will surprise you. Did you know as secretary of state she visited 112 countries and traveled nearly 1 million miles at our expense? Nobody doubts she intends to run for president. And if it werenâ€™t for Hillary, political reporters would be bereft, even with House GOP leader Eric Cantorâ€™s stunning flameout in Virginia. (Life comes at you fast, Mr. ExMajority Leader.) Meanwhile, back to the book. Itâ€™s a little hard to accept her premise that her book clearly explains what a tense encounter in St. Petersburg, Russia, means for families in St. Petersburg, Florida, how a collapsing business in Athens, Greece, affects businesses in Athens, Georgia, and how a revolution in Cairo, Egypt, impacts life in Cairo, Illinois. Good thought, but, no, the book doesnâ€™t explain it or what she would do about any of that as president. THIS BOOK WILL MAKE her more money (a $14 million advance has been mentioned), keep her in the limelight, salute President Obama while cleverly praising herself and reveal nothing detrimental to her eventual campaign. She also claims she now feels free to say what she actually thinks although she doesnâ€™t do much of it. Here are the main points. She fought a tough race with Obama in 2008. She respected him. She was floored when he asked her to be secretary of state. After much angst, she said no. She had to pay off her $6 million campaign debt. Then she said yes because sheâ€™s a Methodist: â€œDo all the good you can,
â€œYou canâ€™t describe the feeling of satisfaction that comes from no censorship.â€? Danka Novovic, Serbian editor, Radio Television Serbia, 2000

at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.â€? And Obama assured her, â€œI think we can become good friends.â€? They did, merging Obamaworld and Hillaryland. Sometimes they disagreed, but she canâ€™t talk about that while he is still in office. SHE LEARNED HER new job was being the nationâ€™s chief diplomat, Obamaâ€™s principal adviser on foreign policy, and CEO of a big bureaucracy. She had to balance her time and energy and decided not to pick a few issues and own them but â€œpay attention to the whole Hillary chessboard.â€?

America was back.â€? And she wants you to know that just one penny of every federal dollar spent goes to diplomacy and development. Hillary studied her predecessors for guidance. When discouraged, sheâ€™d squeeze the paw of the teddy bear in her office to hear it sing: â€œDonâ€™t worry. Be happy.â€? By the way, America is not in decline; its greatest days are ahead if each generation believes. And sheâ€™s sorry about voting for the war in Iraq. Hillary Clinton is remarkable. Warm, funny, smart, and incredibly diligent and ambitious, she was the high school friend whoâ€™d stay up with you half the night as you moaned about a devastating personal crisis such as not making the cheerleading squad, and then sheâ€™d ace the big test at 8 a.m. She may well be the first female president. Burning no bridges in this book, she cites a lot of facts about the world. Really, a lot. Ultimately, she had no big diplomatic breakthroughs. We learn nothing new about Benghazi and the deaths of four Americans. This catalogue of crises will neither help nor hinder her in getting back to the White House. In short, I spent $14.99 so you donâ€™t have to, but, of course, millions will.

One thing can lead to another
Grizzwells by Bill Schorr
Rene Descartes, a French mathematician, philosopher and writer, said, “(Intuition and deduction are) the two operations on which we have said we must rely in the acquisition of knowledge.” At the bridge table, we make deductions and sometimes use intuition. A few deals involve making one deduction and using that to draw a second deduction. Today’s is an example. South jumps into six spades. West leads the heart king. How should declarer plan the play? After North made a gameinvitational limit raise, South knew that a grand slam would be good if his partner held the spade king, heart king and diamond queen. But since
he had no way to find out if North had that perfecto, South sensibly took a shot at six spades. The contract looks too easy. Draw trumps, run the dia-
monds and claim an overtrick. But rather than plunge recklessly forward, South should wonder what might go wrong. The only danger is a bad split in each pointed suit. If diamonds are 4-0, there will be a loser only if East has all four. If spades are 3-0, declarer can avoid a loser by guessing which opponent is long in the suit and finessing through him. South should assume he has a diamond loser. But if East has four diamonds, who is likely to be long in spades? Right – West.

Still 17 cases to decide by end of this month

Buddies aim to break 100 Pair have been playing together for nearly a decade BY BURT CONSTABLE Daily Herald
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS (AP) â€“ The numbers on this golf course run together. The thermometer pushes 90. The scores approach 100. And the golfers soaking it all in are doing fine at ages 103 and 98. â€œPutters are good as canes, too,â€? says Dick Breeden, the 98-year-old, even if he doesnâ€™t need any help striding off the green at Arlington Lakes Golf Club in Arlington Heights after rolling in a 12-foot putt for a par. His partner, 103-yearold Dick Muhlethaler, boasts a gait as smooth as his swing, which draws admiration from the youngsters in their Luther Village retirement community foursome, 87-year-old Charles Beck and 86-year-old Bud Hoffman, as well as other Arlington Lakes golfers. â€œHe has a classic swing, a pro-like swing,â€? says Sam Saran, 90, who teamed with Muhlethaler more than a decade ago to win a couple of club championships for golfers 75 and older. â€œWe won, and he already was over 90.â€? Muhlethaler does have the advantage of practicing year round, thanks to a cardboard contraption he fashioned in his apartment at Luther Village in Arlington Heights. â€œI never was a tall man,â€? says Muhlethaler, who says heâ€™s shrunk in recent years to a height of about 5 feet. That enables him to swing his clubs inside his apartment and hit his cardboard target without the club touching his ceiling. â€œHe swings that club all through the winter,â€? says Breeden, a tall man whoâ€™d be even taller if his back wasnâ€™t in bad shape from all those years when he owned Wauconda Orchards. â€œI just plain lifted too many apple crates. Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m bent over.â€? Muhlethalerâ€™s sweet
swing results in a steady diet of 150-yard drives down the middle of the fairway. â€œAt least weâ€™re straight,â€? Muhlethaler says. â€œNo military golf â€“ right, left, right, left,â€? quips Breeden, who notes the foursome doesnâ€™t use any military language, either. â€œNo swearing, no cussing. â€˜Oh shucksâ€™ is the best we can do.â€? Just missing a birdie putt to settle for a par, Muhlethaler admits that his biggest problem on the golf course has nothing to do with his shots. â€œI canâ€™t see where my ball goes most of the time,â€? he says. â€œIâ€™m his eyes,â€? Breeden says. The pair have been playing together for almost a decade, says Bruce Nixon, the desk manager at Arlington Lakes. â€œTheir minds are sharp as a tack,â€? Nixon says. â€œThey havenâ€™t lost anything in the 12 years Iâ€™ve been here.â€? Both successful entrepreneurial businessmen, Breeden lived in Wauconda and Muhlethaler lived in Barrington before they moved to the retirement community. â€œI got involved in plastics when I graduated from college in 1932,â€? says Muhlethaler, who started Arrem [the phonetic spelling of his R.M. initials] Plastics in 1945 in Addison. Married for a total of 50 years to two wives who died, he is a father of two and a grandfather of two. When a pair of golfers ahead of them linger about 250 yards down the fairway, suggestions that Muhlethaler give them time to get out of the way before he tees off are met with a quick laugh. â€œHit them? Maybe on my third shot,â€? he says. Beck and Hoffman, the only member of the foursome who still has his driverâ€™s license, say they get inspired with every
shot Breeden and Muhlethaler make. â€œLast week, Dick Breeden shot a 51 and Dick [Muhlethaler] shot a 53,â€? says Hoffman. â€œI never shot well, 95 to 100 [for 18 holes], but I always enjoyed the game,â€? says Muhlethaler, who doesnâ€™t know how long heâ€™s golfed. â€œI started when I was 17 and Iâ€™m 103 now, so you can figure it out.â€? Breeden, who drives the golf cart with Muhlethaler as his passenger, putts well and finishes the nine holes with a score of 49, half his age. Muhlethaler, admitting that the attention from newspaper people might be messing up his game a bit, wilts on the last three holes. He takes a 10 on a hole after getting stuck in a sand trap and finishes with a 61, 10 strokes higher than he often shoots. â€œIâ€™ll be there at the end of this season, Iâ€™m sure,â€? Muhlethaler says of his desire to shoot half his age. After golf, Breeden heads home for lunch with his wife, Margie, with whom heâ€™ll celebrate a 75th wedding anniversary on July 15. A father of four daughters and one son, and grandfather of eight, Breeden was an avid tennis player until a stroke more than a decade ago. Always an athlete, he was a member of the Northwestern University water polo team that won the Big Ten championship in 1938. â€œI donâ€™t have anything like that to talk about,â€? Muhlethaler says, noting his high school in Newark, New Jersey, didnâ€™t even have athletic teams. But his drives on two par-3 holes end up on the greens, not far from the pins, drawing anticipatory shouts from his playing partners, who think they might witness a hole-in-one. â€œI did get a hole-in-one once,â€? Muhlethaler says. â€œBut I was 80 years old when I got it.â€?
WASHINGTON (AP) â€“ Itâ€™s crunch time at the Supreme Court, where the justices are racing to issue opinions in 17 cases over the next 2 weeks. The religious rights of corporations, the speech rights of abortion protesters and the privacy rights of people under arrest are among the significant issues that are so far unresolved. Summer travel, European teaching gigs and relaxation beckon, but only after the court hands down decisions in all the cases it has heard since October. In rare instances, the justices will put off decisions and order a case to be argued again in the next term. This is also the time of the year when a justice could announce a retirement. But the oldest of the justices, 81-year-old Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has signaled she will serve at least one more year, and maybe longer. The justices will meet today and again on Thursday to issue opinions, and could wind up
their work by the end of the month. A look at some of the cases that remain: s Contraceptive coverage: Corporations are claiming the right to exercise religious objections to covering womenâ€™s contraceptives under their employee health insurance plans, despite the new health lawâ€™s requirement that birth control be among a range of nocost preventive services included in health plans. s Abortion clinic buffer zones: Abortion opponents are challenging as a violation of their speech rights a Massachusetts law mandating a 35-foot protest-free zone on public sidewalks outside abortion clinics. s Cellphone searches: Two cases weigh the power of police to search the cellphones of people they place under arrest without first obtaining a warrant from a judge. s Recess presidential appointments: A federal appeals court said President Barack Obama misused the Constitutionâ€™s recess power when he temporarily filled posi-
tions on the National Labor Relations Board in 2012. s TV on the Internet: Broadcasters are fighting Internet startup Aereoâ€™s practice of taking television their programming for free and providing it to subscribers who can then watch on smartphones and other portable devices. s Greenhouse gases: Industry groups assert that environmental regulators overstepped their bounds by trying to apply a provision of the Clean Air Act to control emissions of greenhouse gases from power plants and factories. This case is unlikely to affect the recent proposal from the Environmental Protection Agency to slash carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by nearly one-third by 2030; that plan involves a different part of the same law. s Union fees: Home health care workers in Illinois want the court to rule that public sector unions cannot collect fees from workers who object to being affiliated with a union.

Hunt on for hidden cash in park CHICAGO (AP) â€“ Chicagoans scurried around the cityâ€™s lakefront Sunday looking for envelopes of hidden cash, then posted photos of their good fortune on Twitter. It was all part of Hidden Cash, a scavenger hunt craze started in San Francisco by real estate investor Jason Buzi, who call it a â€œsocial experiment for good.â€?

The altruistic group encourages people who find cash to pay it forward by doing something nice for someone else. Buzi has said many have responded by spending the cash on coffee, groceries or gas for others or by helping the homeless and charitable causes. Hunters followed Twitter clues to find the envelopes, some of which
were placed in statues in Millennium and Oz parks. Hidden Cash also tweeted that there will be â€œa small surpriseâ€? on Monday, hidden in a different Chicago location. The scavenger hunts started in San Francisco and have been spreading to other cities, including New York, Houston and Mexico City on Saturday and Chicago on Sunday.

PINEHURST, N.C. â€“ The U.S. Open trophy Martin Kaymer won Sunday was all he needed to prove he was anything but a onehit wonder in the majors, and that the 2 years he spent trying to build a complete game were worth all the doubt that followed him. As he set it down on the table, Kaymer rubbed off a tiny smudge on the gleaming silver, which was only fitting. Over 4 days at Pinehurst No. 2, he dusted the field in a performance that ranks among the best. Kaymer set the 36-hole scoring record by opening with a pair of 65s. He never let anyone closer than four shots over the final 48 holes. Equipped with a five-shot lead, he was the only player from the last eight groups to break par. â€œYou want to win majors in your career, but if you can win one more, it means so much more,â€? Kaymer said after closing with a 1-under 69 for an eight-shot victory over Rickie Fowler and two-time heart transplant recipient Erik Compton. â€œSome people, especially when I went through that low, called me a one-hit wonder and those things. So itâ€™s quite nice proof, even though I donâ€™t feel like I need to prove a lot to people. But somehow, itâ€™s quite satisfying to have two under your belt.â€? The 29-year-old German is a forgotten star no more. Kaymer returned to the elite in golf by turning the toughest test in golf into a runaway at Pinehurst No. 2, becoming only the seventh player to go wire-to-wire in the 114 years of the U.S. Open. Only three players finished the championship under par.

Compton said. â€œI was playing for second. I think we all were playing for second.â€? Only a late bogey kept Kaymer from joining Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy as the only players to finish a U.S. Open in double digits under par. He let his putter fall to the ground when his 15-foot par putt on the 18th hole dropped into the center of the cup, like so many others had this week. Kaymer finished at 9-under 271. His last two wins are the U.S. Open and The Players Championship, with the strongest and deepest fields in golf. He never trailed after any round in either of them. â€œMartin was playing his own tournament,â€? Fowler said after recovering from a double bogey on the fourth hole to close with a 72.
