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 mmencarini@saukvalley.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

Trail signs have been added, and benches are planned in some of the shaded areas.

MORRISON I PATH TO THE PARK

DIXON

Dedication, reception set for Thursday BY KATHLEEN A. SCHULTZ kschultz@saukvalley.com    EXT

MORRISON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;Forest of My Three Wordsâ&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;grove.â&#x20AC;? The ribbonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; unique, personal messages â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which could range from the humorous to the profound, from deeply personal to public outcry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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.

ILLINOIS

Gov. Quinn signs law banning police ticket quotas in state CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x153;Law 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&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;Arbitrary quotas on the number of tickets

that have to be issued by police officers undermines the public trust in the police departmentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; priorities,â&#x20AC;? Hoffman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By eliminating these quotas, we can restore that trust and ensure that police officers are free to do their job protecting the public.â&#x20AC;?

DIXON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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.

OBITUARY

Kasem was an island of calm in swirl of pop music Longtime radio personality dies LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x153;American Top 40â&#x20AC;? and voice of animated television characters like Scooby-Dooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clear whether he was aware of it or able to understand. This wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;American Top 40,â&#x20AC;? with Kasemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature words of advice: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars.â&#x20AC;? On the first â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Top 40â&#x20AC;? in July 1970, Kasem counted down to Three Dog Nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mama Told Me Not to Comeâ&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;Batmanâ&#x20AC;? series. He once said his work on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scooby-Dooâ&#x20AC;? 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 news@saukvalley.com    EXT

STERLING â&#x20AC;&#x201C; More room in the emergency room. In the whole department, in fact. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x201C; 13 of 24 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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 'OTOWWWCGHMC COM%$ORCALL  FORUPDATES ANDMOREINFORMATION Space will more than double, from 10,000 to 21,000 square feet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited to open this first phase of construction,â&#x20AC;? Shirley Wolford, Emergency Department director, said in the release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We 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&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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.

Costs of flying birds in rubbing some wrong way

NEWTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A program to boost Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x201C; they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prairie chickens, but domestic hens â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as a prop to complain about spending. But is the criticism fair? Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a closer look at the DNRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-year, $519,230 program to try to revive the birdsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; before the birdsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now endangered in Illinois, living only on the parcels of

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&#x20AC;&#x2122; 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&#x20AC;&#x153;so we get [tourists] from all the way to the East Coast.â&#x20AC;? The program aims to create a viable, selfsustaining population, â&#x20AC;&#x153;somewhere possibly between a hundred and 500 total birds,â&#x20AC;? Simpson said.

The objections Raunerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chickens were an eye-catching symbol at his Thursday news conference. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve even

inspired a parody Twitter account, @RaunerChicken. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We 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&#x20AC;? Rauner said. State Sen. Mitchellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial troubles. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wildlife and fish fund which, like the federal money, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;I was really shocked,â&#x20AC;? Shoemaker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of programs that build houses for soldiers. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried signing up for more than a dozen of them. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much red tape to go through. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so hard to sign up for, and nine out of 10 of them want you to have a Purple Heart. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a Purple Heart, because [my injury] was considered an accident.â&#x20AC;?

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&#x20AC;&#x201C; an operation involving the skull â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and several

months of rehabilitation. Shoemakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;People are just coming out of the woodwork,â&#x20AC;? Porter said.

MORRISON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s namesake: Whiteside County. The man bringing that flag is Arlo Ericson, who served on the ship for 16 months. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s making the drive all the way from his town of St. Joseph, Missouri â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a town that straddles the Missouri River, just north of Kansas City â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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-

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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been passed along. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gonna bring the flag up, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some pictures,â&#x20AC;?

Illinois investors jump into marijuana business SPRINGFIELD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Investors around Illinois are jockeying for positions in the marijuana business as they wait for the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s David Rosen of Chicago. He was Gov. Pat Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s registered that business name in Illinois, too. Rosenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investors, according to state records from Nevada, include a number of Quinn donors.

!IDTHESUFFERERS 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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.

will pass beyond the butt, but they are liable to do so, and people should not place themselves needlessly in danger.

National Park Service

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.

#OULDNTGETTHERE 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.

$ONTGETSHOT During this pleasant weather, the members of Company E may be found quite often engaged in rifle practice at the sporting butt, up the river. At such times, a red flag is flung to the breeze on the top of the embankment, so that parties rowing up the river may avoid that part of the river in range of the rifle balls. It is seldom that a ball

"ETTERLEAVENOW There will be an eclipse of the sun on June 27th, but it will not be visible in the United States. If any of our readers desire to see this eclipse, they will have to go to South Africa to do so, and they had better start right away if they expect to get there in time.

&OULBALLS We think that if the young [Milledgeville] men who play base ball on Sunday knew the feeling that exists on account of it, they would not do it again.

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x153;buyâ&#x20AC;? on my e-reader. Disbelieving that her new book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hard Choices,â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for Hillary, political reporters would be bereft, even with House GOP leader Eric Cantorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stunning flameout in Virginia. (Life comes at you fast, Mr. ExMajority Leader.) Meanwhile, back to the book. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Methodist: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do all the good you can,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t describe the feeling of satisfaction that comes from no censorship.â&#x20AC;? Danka Novovic, Serbian editor, Radio Television Serbia, 2000

They did, merging Obamaworld and Hillaryland. Sometimes they disagreed, but she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about that while he is still in office. SHE LEARNED HER new job was being the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief diplomat, Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;pay attention to the whole Hillary chessboard.â&#x20AC;?

America was back.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;d squeeze the paw of the teddy bear in her office to hear it sing: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry. Be happy.â&#x20AC;? By the way, America is not in decline; its greatest days are ahead if each generation believes. And sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to, but, of course, millions will.

Having a baby won’t fix couple’s problems Dear Abby: Lately, I have been having problems with my live-in boyfriend, “Ethan.” We fight about everything, and he refuses to admit when he’s wrong. Ethan has been sleeping on the couch for a week, waiting for me to take the first step and reconcile. He isn’t working and I am, and that is probably what has him so mad. I pay all the bills, and he thinks I feel superior, because I’m bringing in money and he’s not. We argue day and night, swear and scream at each other, and he does not

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. So, after taking the first trick with his heart ace, declarer should cash his spade ace. Here, when East discards, South plays a spade to dummy’s jack, cashes the spade king, throws his heart five on the club ace and concedes a diamond trick when they do break 4-0. © 2014 UFS

SUPREME COURT

GOLF

Still 17 cases to decide by end of this month

AP Photo/Daily Herald, Mark Welsh

Dick Muhlethaler (left), 103, and his golfing partner, Dick Breeden, 98, ride in a cart at the Arlington Lakes Golf Club in Arlington Heights, where they play golf together every Tuesday. They both shoot around half their ages for nine holes.

Buddies aim to break 100 Pair have been playing together for nearly a decade BY BURT CONSTABLE Daily Herald

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x153;Putters are good as canes, too,â&#x20AC;? says Dick Breeden, the 98-year-old, even if he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;He has a classic swing, a pro-like swing,â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;We won, and he already was over 90.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;I never was a tall man,â&#x20AC;? says Muhlethaler, who says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;He swings that club all through the winter,â&#x20AC;? says Breeden, a tall man whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be even taller if his back wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in bad shape from all those years when he owned Wauconda Orchards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just plain lifted too many apple crates. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m bent over.â&#x20AC;? Muhlethalerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sweet

swing results in a steady diet of 150-yard drives down the middle of the fairway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At least weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re straight,â&#x20AC;? Muhlethaler says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No military golf â&#x20AC;&#x201C; right, left, right, left,â&#x20AC;? quips Breeden, who notes the foursome doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use any military language, either. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No swearing, no cussing. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh shucksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is the best we can do.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see where my ball goes most of the time,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m his eyes,â&#x20AC;? Breeden says. The pair have been playing together for almost a decade, says Bruce Nixon, the desk manager at Arlington Lakes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their minds are sharp as a tack,â&#x20AC;? Nixon says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost anything in the 12 years Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been here.â&#x20AC;? Both successful entrepreneurial businessmen, Breeden lived in Wauconda and Muhlethaler lived in Barrington before they moved to the retirement community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got involved in plastics when I graduated from college in 1932,â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;Hit them? Maybe on my third shot,â&#x20AC;? he says. Beck and Hoffman, the only member of the foursome who still has his driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license, say they get inspired with every

shot Breeden and Muhlethaler make. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last week, Dick Breeden shot a 51 and Dick [Muhlethaler] shot a 53,â&#x20AC;? says Hoffman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never shot well, 95 to 100 [for 18 holes], but I always enjoyed the game,â&#x20AC;? says Muhlethaler, who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how long heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golfed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started when I was 17 and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 103 now, so you can figure it out.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be there at the end of this season, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure,â&#x20AC;? Muhlethaler says of his desire to shoot half his age. After golf, Breeden heads home for lunch with his wife, Margie, with whom heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anything like that to talk about,â&#x20AC;? Muhlethaler says, noting his high school in Newark, New Jersey, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;I did get a hole-in-one once,â&#x20AC;? Muhlethaler says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I was 80 years old when I got it.â&#x20AC;?

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contraceptives under their employee health insurance plans, despite the new health lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s requirement that birth control be among a range of nocost preventive services included in health plans. sAbortion 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x201C; Chicagoans scurried around the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;social experiment for good.â&#x20AC;?

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&#x20AC;&#x153;a small surpriseâ&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x153;You want to win majors in your career, but if you can win one more, it means so much more,â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people, especially when I went through that low, called me a one-hit wonder and those things. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite nice proof, even though I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like I need to prove a lot to people. But somehow, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite satisfying to have two under your belt.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;I was playing for second. I think we all were playing for second.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;Martin was playing his own tournament,â&#x20AC;? Fowler said after recovering from a double bogey on the fourth hole to close with a 72.

Sterling softball players check out their third-place trophy Saturday morning at EastSide Centre in East Peoria. The Golden Warriors achieved the highest finish in program history with a 4-0 victory over St. Ignatius in the Class 3A third-place game.

BRAND NEW DAY Staples, Sterling shake off semifinal loss to claim third place BY DAN WOESSNER dwoessner@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5555

EAST PEORIA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The program for the 3A state softball tournament lists Kathryn Gallagher at 5 feet, 9 inches tall. When she walked to the plate with the bases loaded in the second inning of Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3A state third-place game, the St. Ignatius senior slugger, who is committed to the University of Illinois, might as well have been Andre the Giant. Her shadow stretched toward the circle, where the confidence of Sterling freshman Lexy Staples probably momentarily wavered, considering a day earlier she had suffered through her worst outing as a Golden Warrior. But it only wavered slightly, and Gallagher might as well have been swinging a toothpick, because she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to get a hit. And she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Staples struck her out with some high heat, St. Ignatius didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score in the second â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or

in any other inning for that matter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Sterling claimed the third-place trophy with a 4-0 win at EastSide Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was such a huge moment,â&#x20AC;? Staples said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew she was a great hitter, and considering what happened yesterday... if she gets a hit, probably at least two runs score, and then we would be behind again.â&#x20AC;? Gallagher, who had 19 home runs coming into the game, is the Wolfpackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadoff hitter, and the Warriors chose to intentionally walk her to start the game. Considering a day earlier that Mantenoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carly Trepanier started the semifinal with a home run off Staples, Sterling coach Becki Edmondson did not want to see a repeat performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was sort of a joke we shared before the game,â&#x20AC;? Edmondson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems like Lexy starts every game with a walk, so we were just making it easier on her. But we really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to start the same way as [Friday].â&#x20AC;? After a scoreless top of the

Erin Stroup was hit by a pitch to start the inning, and Shannon Long sacrificed her over to second. Senior Karlie Mellott then added to her team record in doubles with her 18th of the season. This one went to the fence in left-center, and scored Stroup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was nice to get a good hit on the ball,â&#x20AC;? Mellott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had made some adjustments to my swing, and I just kind of went with it. I think getting a lead helped us relax.â&#x20AC;? St. Ignatius (28-14) appeared ready to strike back in the sec-

ond, after Tess Russell and Hannah Contreras had back-toback singles to start the inning. They were moved up 60 feet by a bunt by Cate Lenti. Staples struck out Elyse Wisniewski before walking Keleigh Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill. That brought up Gallagher for a key out of the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew that Lexy could blow it past her,â&#x20AC;? Sterling catcher Lauren Fritz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesterday, Lexy was more nervous than she usually is. Today, I knew she could get it past her. She just had to believe in her stuff and hit her spots, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what she did.â&#x20AC;? Staples (31-9) went seven shutout innings, giving up six hits, striking out six, and walking three. Two of the walks were intentional to Gallagher. That came a day after Staples gave up 10 runs in 2 1/3 innings. She allowed eight hits in the eventual 14-7 loss to Manteno. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My coaches told me to relax and try to forget about what happened yesterday,â&#x20AC;? Staples said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew that I was better

than that. I just had to get back to throwing strikes and depending on my defense.â&#x20AC;? The score remained 1-0 until the fifth inning, when Shannon Long drove in pinch runner Hannah Escamilla with a single. Fritz then smashed a double to start the sixth inning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had just missed a couple times earlier in the game,â&#x20AC;? Fritz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach [Ed] Long told me I needed to get the bat head out there faster. I did on that hit, and I was really happy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took time for us to get going today, because she was throwing slower than what we saw against Manteno.â&#x20AC;? Lexy Wolfe came in to run. Abri Hale followed with a single to center. Gallagher, in center, tried to throw out Wolfe at home, but she overthrew the catcher, which allowed Hale to get all the way to third. A sacrifice fly by Darien Bardoner rounded out the scoring for Sterling.

Determined Warriors take desired next step E

AST PEORIA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A year ago, Sterling players left heartbroken after a semifinal loss. A senior-dominated bunch, the chance for a state title in their lifetimes as players was over. The next day greeted them with another close game, another close loss. While â&#x20AC;&#x153;happy to be thereâ&#x20AC;? was the sentiment throughout the camp â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and probably felt somewhat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there was a bit of frustration at not winning. Because they were a bunch of winners, and losing never sits well with winners. On Friday, an underclass-dominated bunch were shell-shocked after two innings against Manteno. The Warriors trailed 9-0 after two, and with a very good pitcher in the circle across the way, a rally was a long shot. But, you want to know what? The Warriors didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a whole different thing for it to happen. danWOESSNER Go way back to when Sports Editor the program was happy to 2EACHHIMAT play the role of occasional dwoessner@ saukvalley. spoiler in the regional. com.com It took a lot of things to or 800-798go right.

Behold: the Warriors rington â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and gradually, won third place. they made it respectable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it says what It was still a loss â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 14-7 softball has become in â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any Sterling,â&#x20AC;?

Not this. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the program.â&#x20AC;? too bad. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an easy thing to type For it to happen this in a text file â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sterling year, and this time at wins third place. EastSide Centre, it took

one key ingredient â&#x20AC;&#x201C; guts. Example A: Lexy Staples. Friday was the worst day in the circle for the Sterling freshman. It was the sort of day that crumbles careers. Saturday, she was back in the circle, throwing a shutout to get a different trophy for the case at Musgrove Fieldhouse. That sort of resilience isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really taught, but it is learned. Staples probably can teach a graduate course in it. So, the Warriors won third place. For Mellott and fellow senior Darien Bardoner, that means they are leaving the program in better shape than ever before. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good feeling. For those who remain, third is a good word. But they did lose that first game, and that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit well with them. Because they are winners, and winners are never content with a loss.

Mellott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happier with the 4 years I spent here, and what we accomplished. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But you can tell that great things are coming.â&#x20AC;?

Freshman sets strikeout record Mellott moves up hit list; Sandoval smooth at second BY DAN WOESSNER DWOESSNER SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

EAST PEORIA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Sterling Golden Warriors picked up win No. 31 on Saturday with their 4-0 victory over St. Ignatius. That ties the school record for wins in a season with the 2012 team. But the team record was hardly the lone record-book note from Saturday. Sterling freshman Lexy Staples picked up six strikeouts to give her a record 181 for the season. She tied the record with a strikeout of Elyse Wisniewski in the top of the seventh. She got ahead of No. 9 hitter Keleigh Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill, and then had a couple close pitches called for balls before recording the recordbreaking K with only one more out remaining in the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were some really close calls today,â&#x20AC;? Staples said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a good umpire, but I was getting nervous I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to get there. After each strikeout, I just told myself I needed five more, four more, three moreâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? The previous record was 180, set by Liz Cook in 2004. Karlie Mellott climbed up the IHSA career-hits list with her double in the first. The hit gave her 225,

moving her into a tie for 12th with Nashvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shaye Harre (2010-13), according to IHSA.org. Other notable names on that list are Alexis Silkwood of Alton Marquette, who played Sterling last year in the state semifinal. Silkwood is sixth with 243. Sitting at No. 20 is Eastlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sarah Martz (1997-2000) with 214. Happy anniversary: Sterling coach Becki Edmondson knows what it is like to pitch as a freshman in the state tournament. Edmondson pitched Farmington to the Class A state title as a freshman 25 years ago. Farmington beat Casey Westfield 2-1 in 1989. Edmondson went on to lead the team to the title again in 1991, and was the Peoria Journal Starâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Player of the Year in 1992. Pretty slick: There was maybe one play that brought more smiles to the Warriorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; faces than the final out to clinch the third-place trophy. In the fifth inning, Jen Fialkowski rolled a grounder up the middle with a runner on first. Shortstop Karlie Mellott ranged over and fielded the ball, and flipped it toward second base. Gabby Sandoval was waiting on the bag, and decided to barehand

the toss before firing to first to complete a 6-4-3 twin-killing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All I could do was laugh after that play,â&#x20AC;? Mellott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gabby barehands it like that in practice all of the time, but she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it too much in games. Whenever she does, we just smile. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a great defender, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my partner out there in the middle of the infield. I am really going to miss playing next to her.â&#x20AC;? Web gem: Sterling outfielders Emily McDonald and Shannon Long made a couple web gems during Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s semifinal loss to Manteno. On Saturday, St. Ignatiusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Tess Russell won that honor, and it came at McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expense. In the sixth inning, McDonald ripped a pitch from Maura Lynch to left field. The ball was a liner that seemed ticketed for the fence. Instead, Russell dove and extended barely far enough to rob McDonald of a sure double and an RBI. The Sterling crowd even gave Russell an ovation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a fabulous play,â&#x20AC;? Edmondson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Emily has been slumping a little bit, and it was great to see her make such solid contact. But the outfielder just made a great play.â&#x20AC;?

Spurs forward Tim Duncan (21) celebrates after Game 5 of the NBA finals on Sunday in San Antonio. The Spurs beat Miami 104-87 to win the NBA championship.

A ring for each finger Spurs win fifth title, trounce Miami at home BY BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

SAN ANTONIO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; From their low moment in the NBA Finals, back to the top of the league. The San Antonio Spurs turned the rematch with the Miami Heat into no match at all. The Spurs finished off a dominant run to their fifth NBA championship Sunday night, ending the Heatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2-year title reign with a 104-87 victory that wrapped up the series in five games. A year after their heartbreaking seven-game defeat, their only loss in six finals appearances, the Spurs won four routs to deny Miamiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quest for a third straight championship.

Star of the game: Kawhi Leonard, Spurs, 22 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists Key performers: LeBron James, Heat, 31 points, 10 rebounds; Manu Ginobili, Spurs, 19 points, 4 assists, 4 rebounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hard to believe, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it?â&#x20AC;? Manu Ginobili said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played at a really high level.â&#x20AC;? Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard had 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Spurs, who added this title to the ones they won in 1999, 2003, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;05 and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;07. They nearly had another last year, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold off the Heat and lost the final two games.

San Antonio rebounded from an early 16-point deficit by outscoring the Heat 37-13 from the start of the second quarter to midway through the third, kicking off the celebration the Heat canceled last season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We remember what happened last year, and how it felt in that locker room, and we used it and built on it and got back here ... and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing,â&#x20AC;? Tim Duncan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes last year OK.â&#x20AC;? LeBron James had 17 first-quarter points to help the Heat get off to a fast start. He finished with 31 points and 10 rebounds for the Heat, who lost their spot atop the NBA to the team that had it for so long.

NASCAR | SPRINT CUP

25th time a charm for Johnson Win is fifth in a row for Hendrick Motorsports BY NOAH TRISTER AP Sports Writer

BROOKLYN, Mich. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In the final seconds of his first victory at Michigan International Speedway, Jimmie Johnson could finally relax a bit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;About 200 yards before the finish line, I knew if the car exploded, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d still slide across the finish line,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. Johnson and his No. 48 Chevrolet made it through the last few laps with a comfortable lead, and the six-time series champion won Sunday

for the first time in 25 NASCAR Sprint Cup starts at MIS. Johnson outlasted pole winner Kevin Harvick by 1.214 seconds for his third victory in four races. He also won at Charlotte and Dover. It was the fifth victory in a row for Chevy and Hendrick Motorsports. Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. also have won during the streak that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count Jamie McMurrayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win for Chevy and Chip Ganassi in the Sprint All-Star race

last month. Brad Keselowski finished third Sunday after two straight runner-up showings at Dover and Pocono. Paul Menard was fourth, followed by Kasey Kahne, Gordon and Earnhardt in the 400-mile, 200-lap race. Johnson had finished in the top five four times previously at Michigan, including a second-place showing in August 2011. He lost in August 2012 when his engine faltered with six laps remaining.

Previous Solution: “Nothing I’ve ever done has given me more joys and rewards than being a father to my children.” -- Bill Cosby (c) 2014 by NEA, Inc., dist. by Universal Uclick 6-16

Astrograph You can’t please everyone Monday, June 16, 2014 An aggressive, to-the-point attitude will lead you to success this year. If you keep the doors of communication ajar, you won’t run into any surprises regarding what others are up to. Your personal life will improve once you are happy and feel secure with your professional achievements. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Ignore anyone making derogatory comments. It’s your turn to be in the limelight. Someone with similar views will be interested in you personally and professionally. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Get together with friends or relatives and figure out how to care for a loved one who needs assistance. Sharing responsibilities will help you develop greater respect for each other. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you are faced with opposition, consider that it could be your fault. Your intentions may be good, but if you are too aggressive or demanding, you only create friction. Diplomacy will be required. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) --

Implementing a new nutritional regimen into your daily routine will have health benefits if you practice moderation and monitor the results until you reach a perfect balance. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Take time out to socialize and nurture your personal dreams, hopes and wishes. If you are single, mingle, and if you are part of a couple, plan a romantic evening. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You can’t please everyone, so do what you can to satisfy your own needs. Don’t fall prey to guilt being directed at you by others. Updating your image will give you a positive boost. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you are unclear about what is happening around you, get involved. Check out the doings at your local community center, or sign up for a specialinterest course. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t give up on your dreams. Success doesn’t happen by accident. Be prepared to work hard and make the changes needed to fulfill your ideals.

PUZZLE ENTHUSIASTS: Get more puzzles in AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don’t have any qualms about speaking your mind. You may receive some negative feedback, but trying to hide your feelings won’t help resolve a situation that is puzzling you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Rumors and gossip will spread like wildfire. Don’t repeat or believe what you hear. Your intuition will help you decide how to handle what’s happening and what to do about it. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Run your ideas by your peers and colleagues. Networking is an excellent way to discover how you can make a work-related improvement. An alliance will develop with someone you meet. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Be a participant, not a spectator. Get into the spirit of the moment and agree to take on a new challenge. Having the right attitude is just as vital as the skills you possess.
