SERVING DIXON AND THE SURROUNDING AREA SINCE 1851

LEE COUNTY | CONVICTION COMPARISON

Rate close to that in Whiteside Both counties’ state’s attorneys coming off first year in office BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5521

DIXON – During 2013, there were 442 total felony, misdemeanor, and DUI convictions in Lee County, according to a report released from the state’s attorney office. Compared to the 1,024 felony, misdemeanor, and DUI convictions in Whiteside County during the same time period, the figure seems small, but when accounting for population differences,

the rate is around the same number. The number of convictions per 100 people in Lee County is 1.3. In Whiteside County, it’s 1.8. 2013 was the first year in office for both Lee County State’s Attorney Anna Sacco-Miller and Whiteside County State’s Attorney Trish Joyce. “It was kind of daunting, taking office with the number of serious cases that were pending,” Sacco-Miller said.

ROCK FALLS – Sleek, shiny speed boats will be revving up and down the Rock River this weekend, in a revival of the longdormant Rock Falls River Chase boat races. Race promoter Terry Hicks, who lives near the Rock in Rock Falls, wondered what happened to the old River Chase, last put on 7 or so years ago by various groups and individuals, and what it would take to get it going again. What it would take, it turns out, was him. RIVER CHASE CONTINUED ON A2

Bird ascends to new VP role STAFF REPORT NEWS SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

STERLING – Longtime local physician Dr. William Bird is CGH Medical Center’s new vice president and chief of quality and process improvement, CGH said Friday in a news release. In this position, Bird will help identify areas at CGH that need improvement, decide which processes can be changed to

improve outcomes, build a plan to m a k e changes, and then track the Dr. William results to measure Bird and learn from the outcomes, the release said. He also will oversee the CGH Wound Healing Center and co-manage

RIVER CHASE

CONTINUED FROM A1

Hicks, who has a fulltime job with Dana Corp. and is a busy full-time “baseball dad� for his two kids on top of that, decided to tackle one more project, rolling up his sleeves and chasing his River Chase dream. He contacted a racing club, checked out available hotel rooms for its racers and their families, worked with local organizations getting posters and p.r., trolled for sponsors, solicited volunteers ... anything and everything needed to get the race up and running again. The end result: Up to 75 stock outboard racers,

members of the Marine Racing Club of Illinois, will race from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Seward Park, on East Second Street east of the First Avenue Bridge. Racers also will be testing their boats from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday. In addition to the races, there will be a bounce house for the kids, 50/50 raffles and a food tent sponsored by the Rock Falls Chamber of Commerce. Admission is free.

Sponsors are welcome right up until race day. Sometime Thursday or Friday, depending on the river level, the Rock Falls Fire Department will drag the waterway between the two dams, where the boats will run, to make sure there are no logs or other dangerous debris in the way. (Anglers who might have outlines in the area are advised to pull them out ahead of time.) Hicks hopes to see the River Chase return to an

annual event, and for that he needs community support. Call him at 815-499-2468 to volunteer, sign up as a sponsor or for more information, or find Rock Falls River Chase on Facebook. It’s all part of a busy weekend in Rock Falls: The chamber’s annual Summer Splash activities also will be taking place along the river Friday, Saturday and Sunday. In fact, the gator, elk and buffalo brats and other tasty treats that are a trademark of the chamber’s food tent at the Splash also will be sold at Seward. Go to www.rockfallschamber.com, or find Summer Splash on Facebook for the complete schedule.

EVERY DOG HAD ITS DAY IN STERLING

Galena resident to run as write-in candidate in 17th Fawell announced Constitution Party candidacy in April

ing signatures was prohibitive. “To run for Congress in Illinois,� Fawell said, “I Bill needed 14,000 Fawell signatures on my petition, which is really 24,000 to survive the challenges the two parties would have made to my petitions.� Fawell is founder of the super PAC Elect a New Congress. He said in the news release his campaign is based on four Senate bills he calls “Liberty Legislation.� Those bills would audit the Federal Reserve Bank and its consultants, require all federal laws and policy be passed by only Congress, end omnibus bills, and require all laws be read in Congress before a vote. “The theme of my campaign is simple,� Fawell told the Prairie Advocate in April. “Every problem in America can be traced to the government that rules over the people. The only solution is for the people to rule over that government. “This defines liberty and, fortunately, it is within our grasp. We Americans must only reach out and take back our country.�

Bill Fawell’s name won’t be on the ballot when voters in the 17th Congressional District go to the polls Nov. 4. But he has declared himself to be in the race. Fawell on Friday announced he will be a write-in candidate in the district, forced to do so, he said, because “the two major parties have made it impossible for a thirdparty candidate to get on the ballot in Illinois so that the people can have a real choice when they vote.� The district, which includes Whiteside and Carroll counties, is served by freshman Congresswoman Cheri Bustos, D-East Moline. Republican Bobby Schilling, of Colona, is seeking to regain the seat he lost to Bustos in 2012. Fawell in April announced he was running as a Constitution Party candidate in the district.

OBITUARIES

A frog? A gorilla? No, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pig the dog

Arthur Lopez

No lipstick necessary; folks love dog born with deformities ALABASTER, Ala. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible not to stare at Kim Dillenbeckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dog Pig. Born in Atlanta with severe deformities and adopted by the Alabama woman, the 8-monthold mutt has gangly legs, a body that appears to have been chopped in half and no neck. Pig looks like one of those fake animals created with Photoshop to draw clicks on websites, yet sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole clinic loves her. She comes in and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rock star here,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Rachael Hudson-Breland, a veterinarian who treats Pig. The friendly little animal hops like a frog to stand up and walks with a high-shouldered gait that resembles a gorilla. Unable to swing her head side to side, Pig spins her whole body to see whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beside her. None of the vets who care for the dog have ever seen another animal with the same condition, said HudsonBreland, but Dillenbeck has seen a few similarlooking dogs on the Internet. Found as a puppy with three litter mates in a wooded area in metro Atlanta, Pig is smaller than her surviving siblings at only 15 or so pounds. Her spine is about 7 inches shorter than normal and wavy, with many bones fused together.

AP

Kim Dillenbeckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dog, Pig, drinks water at a park June 17 in Alabaster, Alabama. Born in Atlanta with severe deformities and adopted by the Alabama woman as a puppy, the mixed-breed dog has gangly legs, a body that appears to have been cut in two and no neck. She hops like a frog to stand up and walks with a high-shouldered gait that resembles a gorilla. Dillenbeck, who first saw the dog during a Christmas visit and later brought her home, said coming up with a name wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t difficult. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When she was really, really little she looked like a little fuzzy piglet,â&#x20AC;? said Dillenbeck, who lives in nearby Helena. Tens of thousands of people have watched Internet videos of Pig since she had a comingout party during a community event in Birmingham last month, and Pig has her own Facebook

page with more than 3,400 followers. Last week, dog owners at a suburban park lost track of their own animals as they stopped to watch Pig play in water and run around surprisingly quickly. Dillenbeck said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same anytime Pig ventures out in public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She always draws a crowd,â&#x20AC;? she said. Visiting the park with her boyfriend and two dogs, ballet dancer Tricia Bianco didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know quite what to make of Pig.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is like a little pig. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cute,â&#x20AC;? Bianco said. Pig plays and runs with other animals, and Hudson-Breland said the dog doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any major health problems. But Pig does tire easily, and she sometimes loses her balance and topples over like a toddler. Overall, though, Pig is in great shape for the shape sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Pig really knows that she looks different,â&#x20AC;? HudsonBreland said.

across the U.S. However, legislative attempts to increase Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rate have failed. Republicans and some Democrats in swing suburban and downstate districts have resisted the push, which they and some business leaders say could kill jobs and make Illinois less competitive with states where the minimum wage is lower. Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rate is $1 higher than the national rate. But Quinn, who was surrounded by dozens of supporters from area churches, labor unions and other advocacy groups for a signing ceremony in Chicago, said raising the wage will help working people and boost the economy by putting more money in workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pockets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that we build a movement, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here today to do,â&#x20AC;? Quinn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best

way to help the most people is to help them have a wage that gets them out of poverty where they can support their family.â&#x20AC;? Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Republican opponent for governor, Bruce Rauner, has said that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be willing to raise the rate under certain circumstances after initially saying heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see it match the federal rate. Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and other Democrats â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have seized on Raunerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position change in a race thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected to be one of the most competitive nationwide, using it to paint the wealthy businessman as out of touch with working people. The minimum wage ballot question could be among up to seven voter initiatives for the November election, including two other poll-style questions on a millionaire tax and birth control.

Four others aim to change the constitution, such as a Rauner-led effort to impose term limits on lawmakers and another that would change the way Illinois draws its political districts. However, both are the subject of a lawsuit questioning their constitutionality, which Rauner and backers of the redistricting measure have claimed is an attempt to quash ideas that are unpopular with Democrats, who control the Illinois House, Senate and governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office.

Most of the ballot initiatives were championed by Democratic lawmakers, prompting Republicans to call it an attempt to woo voters in a tough election year.

Quinn OKs minimum wage question CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Illinois voters will get a chance to voice their opinion on raising the minimum wage under a ballot measure Gov. Pat Quinn signed Sunday. The measure is nonbinding, but Quinn and other Democrats who want to raise the rate say it will give them the support they need to move the idea through the state Legislature. The question for the Nov. 4 ballot asks whether Illinois should boost its minimum wage for people over age 18 from $8.25 to $10 by 2015. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a prominent issue in the 2014 campaign for Quinn, who is seeking a second full term, and for Democrats

four brothers, Dino (Heather) Merced of Sterling, Zeke (Dorothy) Lopez of Nevada, Angel (Mavis) Lopez of California, and Mikel Lopez of Mount Sterling. He was preceded in death by his parents. A gathering of friends and family will take place from 9 to 11 a.m. Wednesday at McDonald Funeral Home, 505 First Ave., in Sterling. The memorial service will follow at 11 a.m.

PLAY REVIEW

Contractor likely $200M short â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;An Inspector

Callsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; delivers at Timber Lake

Private operator has failed to hit revenue targets SPRINGFIELD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; private lottery contract has never reached the lofty sales promises it used to win a bid 4 years ago and is expected to fall more than $200 million short of what it owes the state when the budget year ends June 30. But Northstar Lottery Group says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been hamstrung by state officials, with whom they have an already frosty relationship and accuse of throwing up road blocks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from canceling games it wanted to launch to prohibiting the sponsorship of Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pitchfork Music Festival in 2013 because of headliner R. Kelly. Regardless, Northstarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10-year contract with the state details that falling short of its goals by 10 percent 2 years in a row is grounds for ending the partnership, no questions asked. It missed targets by almost 20 percent last year, and is on track to do the same this year. A top lawmaker has said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappointed, because a massive construction program was supposed to be funded with money Northstar claimed it could deliver. The lottery giantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract has been under scrutiny from the start. A report released by Illinois Auditor General Bill Holland just days before Northstar took over in July 2011 showed irregularities in the decisionmaking process to select the corporation. In one case, a panel member submitted his evaluations of proposed business plans for the $2 billion state lottery after Northstar won the bid. Yet, company CEO Tim Simonson says it has done well, despite factors working against it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those were ambitious goals we set for ourselves, and we have fallen short of those goals. But the full perspective, we believe is important,â&#x20AC;? Simonson said, arguing that his company has run the lottery better than the state. In some cases, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true. Northstar boosted lottery profits by almost 10 percent in 2012 and improved income is expected â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even if mar-

BY SUE LANGENBERG Special to Sauk Valley Media

AP

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn speaks to members of the Illinois Manufacturerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association on May 7 in Springfield. The private operator selected to run the Illinois lottery was supposed to do a better job than the state at bringing in muchneeded revenue. But, year after year, Northstar Lottery Group has failed to hit sales and revenue targets that some say were overinflated in the first place so the company could get the contract. Now lawmakers are calling on Gov. Quinn to make a change.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;

As the numbers increasingly show that Northstar is unable to live up to its commitments, I would encourage the governor to hold the firm accountable and take whatever steps are necessary.

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Senate President John Cullerton

ginally â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this year. Plus, Illinois has accumulated millions of dollars in penalty payments from the company when lottery profits donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reach expectations. Lottery customer service has improved dramatically, said Todd Jenney, the CEO for Huckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Convenience Stores. But his lottery sales havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t noticeably improved, which Jenney partly attributes to a cigarette tax increase and high fuel prices. When Northstar took over the 40-year-old program, it promised contributions of $1 billion to the state in the fifth year of its contract. But it has been about $400 million short since in its first 3 years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; money that is supposed to go toward schools, charitable organizations and a $31 billion capital construction program launched in 2009. When Northstar fails to deliver, the state gets penalty payments that make up for part of the shortfall. State lottery officials and the company can also raise or lower

the amount owed based on market changes. The company has requested about $900 million in â&#x20AC;&#x153;downward adjustmentsâ&#x20AC;? to reduce what it owes the state â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including a quarter-billion dollars just months after the takeover. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we turn down anything, their habit has been to immediately give us a downward adjustment as to what they owe us,â&#x20AC;? Illinois Lottery Director Michael Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have always been available or attempted to work with them and give them the benefit of our experience and advice. Sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken, most times itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not.â&#x20AC;? Northstarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s requests are based on a wide range of issues that company officials say are â&#x20AC;&#x153;completely appropriateâ&#x20AC;? within the contract. However, the lottery board also has requested more than $500 million in â&#x20AC;&#x153;upward adjustments,â&#x20AC;? seeking more money after the addition of online games, a new phone app

and the delayed rollout of video poker. Even with the hundreds of millions of dollars in contract disputes, a mediator has only ruled to knock about $30 million off of what Northstar owes Illinois during the 10-year contract. Other state officials are taking notice. Senate President John Cullerton has said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;extremely disappointedâ&#x20AC;? in the company. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole idea here was that a private manager would be able to deliver substantially better performance for the state,â&#x20AC;? the Chicago Democrat said 2 weeks ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the numbers increasingly show that Northstar is unable to live up to its commitments, I would encourage the governor to hold the firm accountable and take whatever steps are necessary.â&#x20AC;? Marengo Democratic Rep. Jack Franks has repeatedly called on Gov. Pat Quinn to fire Northstar, and warns that â&#x20AC;&#x153;people lose elections on incompetence and mismanagement, and this is something the governor ought to take more seriously.â&#x20AC;? But the Quinn administration has been mostly silent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we have in the past, we will evaluate all options available under the contract, if Northstar misses its targets again,â&#x20AC;? Quinn spokeswoman Katie Hickey said.

MOUNT CARROLL â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second show, â&#x20AC;&#x153;An Inspector Calls,â&#x20AC;? opened Thursday night at Timber Lake Playhouse, with attendance only slightly compromised by inclement weather. During the enthusiastic action, a gentle rain was a soothing backdrop. The play was written by J.B. Priestley in 1945 and became a classic of the 20th century, winning numerous awards in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s. For BBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Downton Abbeyâ&#x20AC;? fans, it struck a chord, making the mystery a timely production for TLP. Celebrated Chicago director Chuck Smith is a guest director for a 13th consecutive year at TLP, and he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it any other way. Among his many Chicago credits are 22 years on Goodman Theatre artistic staff. Now that he has discovered the summer stock experience in the woods and all the talent that comes with it, he comes out to the boonies every year. The very title, â&#x20AC;&#x153;An Inspector Calls,â&#x20AC;? might draw images of a slamming-door farce with warring personalities that deliver fragile timing of dialogue. Nothing can be further from the truth. This play takes a small cast and unfolds a mystery into such a well crafted piece, as Smith notes, that one can hardly predict anything. Delicate timing matters very little, in fact, because the strength of the script in one evening in one prosperous house develops quite naturally into a multi-layered mockery of class, society and politics. Set in 1910 in a preTitanic world, the Birling family of Brumley is most comfortably cloistered in a world apart from reality. As head of household, Mr. Birling establishes their â&#x20AC;&#x153;unsinkableâ&#x20AC;? place in society. The undoing of this illusion begins as Inspector Goole (or is he an inspector?) pays a call to the drawing room celebration of a daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engagement. All members of the family are somehow implicated in the apparent suicide of a

young woman (who was she again?). Returning special guest actor John Chase as Mr. Birling hum-drums his way through with commanding presence, sometimes rattled with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fiddlesticksâ&#x20AC;? or two and desperately trying to hold on to his superiority. Chase is a strong asset to TLP productions, having previously performed in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Working,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oklahomaâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spamalot,â&#x20AC;? among others. Chicago actor Danielle Brothers makes her TLP debut as huffy matriarch Mrs. Birling. Her imposing voice and authoritative manner grew especially in the second act as the family fell apart. Brothers draws from her some 20 years at â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chicago Shakespeare Theatre,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Porchlightâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buffalo Theatre Ensemble.â&#x20AC;? The role of daughter Sheila Birling was played by Caroline Murrah, also making her debut at TLP. She was a delightful contrast to Brothers, with her high-pitched hysteria while evenly expressing anger toward handsome fiancĂŠ Gerald Croft, played by Gabriel Brown. As Inspector Goole (who was he again?), Grant Brown was dutifully awkward, conniving and mysterious. Bethany Fay as Edna kept the drawing room as formal as possible. Returning to TLP is actor Cody Jolly, a recent graduate in theatre arts at Webster University of St. Louis. The role of son Eric is right up his sleeve, as were his other characters in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Music Manâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unnecessary Farceâ&#x20AC;? of last season. His work in a third TLP show, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Young Frankensteinâ&#x20AC;? (July 3-13), will indeed be a hoot to behold. Find out who the Inspector is in â&#x20AC;&#x153;An Inspector Calls,â&#x20AC;? which runs through Saturday at Timber Lake Playhouse, 8215 Black Oak Road, Mount Carroll. Evening performances start at 7:30 p.m. (No show tonight.) There is one more matinee, at 2 p.m. Wednesday. Group rates are available. Contact the box office at (815) 244-2035 or www. timberlakeplayhouse.org for more information.

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Seven thousand lightning strikes in 15 minutes! I panicked! Where? Where? It took another 15 minutes to find out. Chicago. What a relief to someone who lives in Washington. But wait. The nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital was in for â&#x20AC;&#x153;severeâ&#x20AC;? thunderstorms and a temperature of 97 degrees! If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not bad enough, there is something called the heat index that makes it even worse, let alone the bone-crushing humidity.

If you watch too much of TWC (aka obsessed with Doppler Radar), you begin to feel a sense of anxiety you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shake. Did you know that 23 percent of New Jerseyites (New Jerseyians?) with property damaged during Hurricane Sandy got no insurance money because of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;anti-concurrent causation clauseâ&#x20AC;? in their policies? How can you relax when TWC tells you that? How are people in Phoenix supposed to go to work when they hear that the temperature will be 5 degrees above the normal of 112? ONE SIMPLY CANNOT think good thoughts when TWC announces: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do not go outside. Records are being shattered right now.â&#x20AC;? Even if this is happening in Oregon and you live in Maine, you will either feel uneasy or you will gloat. Until you learn that Maine is soon to have â&#x20AC;&#x153;unprecedented, severeâ&#x20AC;? weather of its own. And if you live in the Plains states, you are doomed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beware massive tornadoes in your areaâ&#x20AC;? is now heard daily on TWC. I am positive TWCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The moment you declare a set of ideas to be immune from criticism, satire, derision or contempt, freedom of thought becomes impossible.â&#x20AC;? Salman Rushdie, novelist, 2005

meteorologists are making up brand-new weather terms to keep us confused, worried and riveted. If your basement is still under water from the last storm, you will be told that your summer is going to be populated by â&#x20AC;&#x153;severe,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;scatteredâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;occasionally violentâ&#x20AC;? thunderstorms.

If you are fortunate enough to have waterfront property, you will hear the F word constantly. (Flooding.) Lots of luck enjoying the view. EVEN IF YOU ARE spared the dust storm, hail, extremely high winds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;wedge tornadoâ&#x20AC;? or record-shattering drought of the day, just hearing about it makes you nervous. The thought of having to drive through Nebraska or Kansas or Missouri, let alone being transferred there for work, will keep you awake at night. (The FBI still keeps agents in line by threatening such a fate.) As if the weather isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bad enough, TWCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commercials are filled with dire health warnings that will soon convince you that your hair is falling out, your mateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knee replacement was seriously botched, a little white pill (for an ailment youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never heard of but now know you have) may kill you, and your bad day is a sign of severe clinical depression. We are told by consummate pollsters for The Wall Street Journal and NBC News (NBC owns TWC) that only 41 percent of Americans approve of Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job performance and millions of us think the nation is on â&#x20AC;&#x153;the wrong track.â&#x20AC;? Clearly, this country is far too obsessed with The Weather Channel. Note to readers: Ann McFeatters is an op-ed columnist for McClatchyTribune.

Love of life can be only a part-time passion Dear Abby: I fell in love with a boy when I was 12, deeply in love. We met at our county fair. We grew up together and have remained friends for 30 years. He married and had children, as did I. I am now divorced, but he’s still married. Recently, our friendship has grown into something more. He wants our relationship to continue, but he’s afraid to leave his wife because of the kids. They have been together for 20 years. What do I do? He’s the love of my life. Any time I have with him is better than none. It’s not that I don’t know I deserve bet-

Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to be smoke-free questioned possible at the 2,600-acre SIU campus. His organization surveyed students, held open forums and listened to ideas, and Almasri said they heard feedback â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from smokers and nonsmokers alike â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that smoking areas would be more appropriate and reasonable than an all-out ban. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bigger issue, in my opinion, is students who live on campus and staff who work all day,â&#x20AC;? Almas-

Student body president says walking off campus not feasible at institution EDWARDSVILLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Southern Illinois Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Edwardsville campus is to be smoke-free in a year, but some students â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even a few who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t light up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair. Student body president Nasir Almasri doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use tobacco products but believes the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent

Smoke-Free Campus Act, scheduled to take effect in July 2015, wrongly doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t account for the way his campus is laid out, the Belleville News-Democrat reported. Almasri said some smokers at other colleges may simply walk across a street to get off campus, but he says thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not

ri said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really walk off the campus. You have to get in a car, drive 5 to 7 minutes off campus. ... You could be gone for 20 to 30 minutes for a cigarette. Especially for the staff, it just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feasible.â&#x20AC;? University spokesman Doug McIlhagga said SIU-Edwardsville would comply with the new law, which first requires an implementation committee to be formed by next January.

University system president Randy Dunn said he met with Almasri in May and heard the requests for designated smoking areas on the large campus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did not disagree with his thinking,â&#x20AC;? Dunn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, as you know, [the legislation] has passed, and that statutory language is clear that only two exceptions are provided for a campusâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; smoking is allowed in private vehicles parked on the campus or

traveling through it. Almasri, who hopes others will join him in lobbying state legislators to amend the law before it takes effect, also questioned how the ban would be enforced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unless the state plans on paying someone to go around and ticket offenders, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the school has the resources for it,â&#x20AC;? Almasri said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The students are going to ignore it and smoke, anyway.

The company suits, impressed with St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foley work and his â&#x20AC;&#x153;encyclopedic knowledgeâ&#x20AC;? of classic movies, gave him the job of making sure copies of Cannonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s movies arrived at the right places in other countries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got to work on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thelma and Louiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for Ridley Scott, and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Runaway Trainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with Jon Voight!â&#x20AC;? St. John said with the enthusiasm of a kid recounting his favorite baseball cards. St. John also provided sound for four Charles Bronson movies, including â&#x20AC;&#x153;Death Wish 4: The Crackdown.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a huge fan of his work,â&#x20AC;? St. John said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was always a consummate professional. Always on time. Knew his stuff. I enjoyed working with him and respected him quite a bit.â&#x20AC;? Eventually, St. John decided to stick with ADR work. That stands for â&#x20AC;&#x153;automated dialogue replacement.â&#x20AC;? St. John explained:

(More on ADR in a moment.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pay is nice ... when you work,â&#x20AC;? St. John said from his Elgin home. He dropped by his hometown last week to attend a couple of family graduations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a fan of the original â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Star Trekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; series when I was a kid.

Elgin native and Larkin High School graduate Dean St. John poses for a photo in April at a library in Elgin. St. John works as a sound technician and ADR expert for Hollywood movies and TV shows. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked on 90 episodes of the TV series â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star Trek: Enterprise,â&#x20AC;? four seasons of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star Trek: Voyagerâ&#x20AC;? and one season of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.â&#x20AC;? His imdb.com credits run 11 printed pages of sound work on movies and TV programs dating back to the mid-1980s when he started out as a Foley artist, the person who creates incidental and ambient sound effects for movies in

postproduction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most sound people come out of the music industry, either musicians or sound mixers,â&#x20AC;? St. John said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I came out of Northwestern Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Radio, TV and Film Department in 1982.â&#x20AC;?

He moved to Los Angeles and struggled to find employment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did any job I could get on a set,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Craft foods person. Camera assistant. Grip. Electrical assistant. Production assistant. What-

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes, the dialogue recorded on the set isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t technically good. Or, sometimes, and this is common in TV shows, a writer will decide to add plot points delivered offcamera or in voice-over narration.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when St. John brings back the original cast members (if available) to rerecord their dialogue (or â&#x20AC;&#x153;loopâ&#x20AC;? it) while watching their scenes play on a large video screen. Often, the actors will replace bad words and tawdry phrases with sanitized, PG alternatives that can play on airplanes and broadcast networks. St. John has also done â&#x20AC;&#x153;loop groups,â&#x20AC;? in which he records background and ambient sounds for scenes of parties, airports, bus stations and other group gatherings where sound must be added later. St. John has done sound work in movies such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Heatâ&#x20AC;?

The danger hand is to be avoided

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

One of the toughest cardplay concepts for less experienced players is the “danger hand.” This occurs when declarer must do his utmost to keep one particular opponent off the lead. Today’s deal, it will not surprise you to learn, is a textbook example. South is in three no-trump. West leads the diamond six: five, two (lowest from three worthless cards), jack. How should South continue? Note North’s two-heart rebid. With two low diamonds, it is preferable to raise hearts with only three than to rebid one no-trump. Then South carefully jumps to three no-trump, not four hearts, asking his partner to choose between those two

game contracts. South starts with seven top tricks: three spades, one heart, one diamond (from the first trick) and two clubs. The extra winners can obviously

come from the club suit. But through which opponent should declarer finesse? The first trick makes it clear that West has the diamond queen and ace. If East had either of those cards, he would have played it at trick one – third hand high. So, if East gains the lead, he will return a diamond straight through South’s king 10, and West will cash several tricks in the suit. But if West is on lead, South still has a diamond stopper. East is the danger hand. However, declarer still has to be careful. He should cross to dummy with a spade, then run the club 10. When that finesse wins, South plays a club to his jack, cashes the club king, returns to dummy with a spade, takes the club ace and club eight, and ends with an overtrick. © 2014 UFS

VA falls short on women issues Militants seize

two additional border crossings

Female vets on wait list at higher rate than males SAN FRANCISCO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Already pilloried for long wait times for medical appointments, the beleaguered Department of Veterans Affairs has fallen short of another commitment: to attend to the needs of the rising ranks of female veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, many of them of childbearing age. Even the head of the VAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office of womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health acknowledges that persistent shortcomings remain in caring for the 390,000 female vets seen last year at its hospitals and clinics â&#x20AC;&#x201C; despite an investment of more than $1.3 billion since 2008, including the training of hundreds of medical professionals in the fundamentals of treating the female body. According to an Associated Press review of VA internal documents, inspector general reports and interviews: Nationwide, nearly one in four VA hospitals does not have a full-time gynecologist on staff. And about 140 of the 920 community-based clinics serving veterans in rural areas do not have a designated womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health provider, despite the goal that every clinic would have one. When communitybased clinics refer veterans to a nearby university or other private medical facility to be screened for breast cancer, more than half the time their mammogram results are not provided to patients within two weeks, as required under VA policy. Female veterans have been placed on the VAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Posts taken after government forces there pulled out BAGHDAD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sunni militants on Sunday captured two border crossings, one along the frontier with Jordan and the other with Syria, security and military officials said, as they pressed on with their offensive in one of Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most restive regions. The fall dealt Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s embattled Shiite prime minister a further blow and brought the war to the doorstep of Jordan, a key ally of the United States that also borders embattled Syria to its north. The blitz by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vast western desert takes the al-Qaidabreakaway group closer to its dream of carving out a purist Islamic state straddling both Syria and Iraq. Controlling the borders with Syria will also help it supply fellow fighters in Syria with weaponry looted from Iraqi ware-

Army Sgt. LaQuisha Gallmon holds her 2-month-old, Abbagayl, as her children, Dallin, 8, and Angelicah, 5, sit in their home Wednesday in Greenville, South Carolina. Gallmon said that her local VA office had authorized her to see a private physician during her pregnancy, so she went to an emergency room after experiencing complications in her sixth month of pregnancy. She said the VA has thus far refused to pay the resulting $700 bill. Electronic Wait List at a higher rate than male veterans. All new patients who cannot be scheduled for an appointment in 90 days or fewer are placed on that wait list. And according to a VA presentation last year, female veterans of childbearing age were far more likely to be given medications that can cause birth defects than were women being treated through a private HMO. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are there problems? Yes,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Patricia Hayes, the VAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief consultant for womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health in an AP interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The good news for our health care system is that as the number of women increases dramatically, we are going to continue to be able to adjust to these circumstances quickly.â&#x20AC;? The 5.3 million male veterans who used the VA system in fiscal year 2013 far outnumbered female patients, but the num-

ber of women receiving care at VA has more than doubled since 2000. The tens of thousands of predominantly young, female veterans returning home has dramatically changed the VAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patient load, and the system has yet to fully catch up. Also, as the total veteran population continues to decrease, the female veteran population has been increasing year after year, according to a 2013 VA report. All enrolled veterans can use what the VA describes as its â&#x20AC;&#x153;comprehensive medical benefits package,â&#x20AC;? though certain benefits may vary by individual and ailment, just like for medical care outside the VA system. The VA typically covers all female-specific medical needs, aside from abortions and in-vitro fertilization. The strategic initiatives, which sprang from recommendations issued

6 years ago to enhance womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health systemwide, have kick started research about women veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; experience of sexual harassment, assault or rape in a military setting; established working groups about how to build prosthetics for female soldiers; and even led to installation of womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restrooms at the more than 1,000 VA facilities. Yet enduring problems with the delivery of care for women veterans are surfacing now amid the growing criticism of the VAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handling of patient care nationwide and allegations of misconduct, lengthy wait times and potential unnecessary deaths. Used to treating the men who served in Vietnam, Korea or World War II, many of the VAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practitioners until a few years ago were unaccustomed to treating menopause or giving advice about birth control.

houses, significantly reinforcing its ability to battle beleaguered Syrian government forces. If they succeed in their quest, they could further unsettle the already volatile Middle East and serve as a magnet for Jihadists from across the world â&#x20AC;&#x201C; much like al-Qaida attracted extremists in Talibanruled Afghanistan. The Iraqi officials said the militants of the Islamic State took over the Turaibil crossing with Jordan and the al-Walid crossing with Syria after government forces there pulled out. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. The capture of the two crossings follows the fall on Friday and Saturday of the towns of Qaim, Rawah, Anah and Rutba They are all in the Sunni dominated Anbar province, where the militants have since January controlled the city of Fallujah and parts of the provincial capital Ramadi.

UKRAINE

Putin calls for compromise Russian president supports cease-fire MOSCOW (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Russian President Vladimir Putin publicly expressed support Sunday for Ukraineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s declaration of a cease-fire in its battle against pro-Russian separatists and called on both sides to negotiate a compromise. Putin said such a compromise must guarantee the rights of the Russianspeaking residents of eastern Ukraine, who must feel like they are â&#x20AC;&#x153;an integral partâ&#x20AC;? of their own country. Putinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement appeared to signal that he sees their future in Ukraine. Separatists in the eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions have declared independence and asked to join Russia. Moscow has rebuffed their appeals, but is seen by Ukraine and the West as actively supporting the insurgency. Putinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conciliatory words came as Russia began large-scale military exercises and after NATO accused Russia of moving troops back toward the Ukrainian border. Putin appears determined to keep up the pressure to force the Kiev government to give the eastern industrial regions more powers and to prevent Ukraine from moving too close to the European Union or NATO. But he also wants to avoid more punishing sanctions from the U.S. and particularly from the E.U., whose leaders will meet Friday in Brussels, and therefore needs to be seen as cooperating with efforts to de-escalate the conflict.

The Kremlin initially dismissed the peace plan that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko laid out on Friday. But in a statement issued late Saturday, Putin said he welcomed the cease-fire and Poroshenkoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;intention to take other concrete steps to reach a peaceful settlement.â&#x20AC;? As part of his plan, Poroshenko suggested a decentralization of power to give the regions more political authority. He also proposed new local and parliamentary elections, and measures to protect the language rights of Russian speakers in the east. Putin was more specific on Sunday, when he

spoke publicly following ceremonies commemorating the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That President Poroshenko announced a truce is without a doubt an important part of a final settlement, without which no agreement can be reached, and there is no doubt that Russia will support this intention, but in the end the most important thing is a political process,â&#x20AC;? Putin said. Putin discussed the cease-fire on Sunday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande, Merkelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and the Kremlin said.

U.S. comes oh so close

Late goal spoils American celebration BY CHRIS LEHOURITES AP Sports Writer

MANAUS, Brazil – With Cristiano Ronaldo on the field, a one-goal lead is never safe. The world player of the year rarely sparkled on a hot and humid night in the jungle, but his inch-perfect stoppage-time cross set up Varela for the equalizing goal Sunday in Portugal’s 2-2 draw against the United States at the World Cup. The Real Madrid winger, who has been playing despite a left knee injury, showed flashes of his best, but his impact was minimal until the final seconds of the match. He curled the ball in to a diving Varela, who headed past Tim Howard to give the Portuguese team a slim hope of advancing to the second round and deny the Americans instant advancement.

“He made a great cross,” said Howard, Ronaldo’s former teammate from their days at Manchester United. “Football’s cruel sometimes.” The United States now has four points in Group G, the same as Germany.

Many cars left a June 7 demolition derby unscathed. Instead of the custom $4,500-$5,500 machines being beaten up and demolished in front of wreckagecrazed fans, the event itself, held at Sterling’s Speed Bowl Park, was scrapped. Charlie Perrine, a demolition derby promoter, aimed to hold a large event with high payouts to the winners of the four different car classifications. The high payouts were theoretically supposed to bring in many people, but things didn’t go as planned. “It was pretty much kind of a mess,” said Brick Boss, owner of Boss Roofing and Siding in Rock Falls. Boss ended up trying to salvage the event after Perrine cancelled. Perrine waited as long as he could for the crowd to file in and for more participants to show, but waiting just delayed the inevitable. A rules official broke the news to the drivers in the pre-race drivers’ meeting that the event would be cancelled because there wasn’t enough money to pay the advertised cash prizes for each event. The event was intended to be large. Around 50 to 60 portable toilets were brought in on that Saturday in anticipation of a large turnout. WRECKED CONTINUED ON B2

With a three-shot lead on the 16th hole, Wie nearly threw it all away with one poor decision, only keeping the lead by making a nervy 5-foot putt for double bogey. And right when it looked as though this would

end badly, the 24-year-old from Hawaii responded with the putt of her life that made her a Women’s Open champion. Facing a 25-foot birdie putt on 17 that was fast and dangerous, Wie pumped her fist when it fell, then pounded her fist twice to celebrate the moment. “That kind of emotion, that kind of pressure ... I’ll think of that putt as one of the best putts I’ve ever hit in my life,” she said. A par on the 18th gave her an even-par 70 to beat Lewis, the No. 1 player in women’s golf, who made Wie earn it. Lewis made eight birdies – the most in a final round by a male for female in the U.S. Open – and closed with a 66. U.S. OPEN CONTINUED ON B3

Carl Edwards holds up a glass of wine after winning the NASCAR road course race at Somona on Sunday. He beat five-time winner Jeff Gordon, who placed second.

Road runner winner Edwards wins for first time at Sonoma BY JENNA FRYER !0!UTO2ACING7RITER

SONOMA, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Carl Edwards has never been known for his road racing skills â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to the point team owner Jack Roush had to send him testing in a two-seater so Boris Said could teach him the basics. A decade later, Edwards finally has a win to show for his hard work. And, he beat road racing ace Jeff Gordon to get to Victory Lane on Sunday at Sonoma Raceway, where Gordon leads all drivers with five wins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My road racing progression, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a pretty long climb,â&#x20AC;? Edwards said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The real special part to me was to stand in Victory Lane at Sonoma, and have Jeff Gordon come and give me a handshake as the second-place finisher. I grew up watching Jeff Gordon, and specifically watching how he drove this race track and all the successes he had here, so I mean, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really super. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget.â&#x20AC;? Edwardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; win made Roush Fenway Racing the unlikely organization to end Hendrick Motorsportsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; five-race winning streak. And, the win came a week after Roush was shut out at Michigan, where the organization failed to put a car in the top 10 for the first time since 2000. Edwards took the lead on a restart with 25 laps remaining, and seemed to have the win wrapped up until Gordon nearly chased him down on the final lap. Gordon had one good look at Edwards, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pull off the pass. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That last lap was ugly,â&#x20AC;? Edwards said of trying to hold off Gordon. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a terrible day for the Hendrick organization, which had won every Sprint Cup Series

Sonoma lowdown Opened: Turns: Qualifying record:*EFF'ORDON MPH IN Race record:#LINT"OWYER MPH IN Most wins:*EFF'ORDON race since Gordonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory at Kansas on May 10. Instead, HMS settled for all four of its drivers finishing in the top seven. Gordon, the Sprint Cup Series points leader, wound up second. He said he made one mistake in overdriving a turn with about five laps to go that allowed Edwards to build a healthy lead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put enough pressure on him,â&#x20AC;? Gordon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think, had I put some more pressure on him, I saw him really struggling with the [tire] grip level, but he did everything he needed to do. That last lap, I gave it my best effort and closed up on him, and he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overdrive it. I was hoping he might slide up and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get a run on him.â&#x20AC;? Dale Earnhardt Jr. was third after rallying from an incident that wrecked Matt Kenseth, and was apologetic on the radio and after the race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tried to screw it up a couple times in the race, but I calmed down and was able to get a good finish,â&#x20AC;? Earnhardt said after his career-best finish on a road course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got into Matt; I jumped a curb and jumped into the air and just ran into him. Totally my fault. I hope heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not sore with me.â&#x20AC;? Kasey Kahne bounced back from an early flat tire to finish sixth, and Jimmie Johnson was seventh. In all, Chevrolet drivers took spots two through seven, as

pole-sitter Jamie McMurray, using a Hendrick engine, finished fourth, and Paul Menard was fifth. Fords took the next two spots, with Marcos Ambrose in eighth and Roush driver Greg Biffle in ninth. The highest-finishing Toyota was Clint Bowyer in 10th. Bowyer was the leader on a restart with 31 laps to go, was passed by Ambrose, and then got a flat left rear tire. The tire problem led to Jamie McMurray turning Bowyer, and as Bowyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car was stopped in the middle of the track, bottleneck traffic caused Kevin Harvick to run into Bowyer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got ourselves in position and had a flat. It was going down, and I was all over the place,â&#x20AC;? Bowyer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jamie just kind of finished me up and got me out of the way. Bad luck, man.â&#x20AC;? Edwardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; win is his first career victory on a road course, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never been higher than third at Sonoma. More important, it was his second win of this season, and locks him into the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field. It was Edwardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 23rd win of his career, the 135th Sprint Cup Series victory for car owner Jack Roush, and it made Edwards the 10th consecutive different winner at Sonoma. Crew chief Jimmy Fennig said the race played into their hands after pitting with 40 to go, and then a caution came out and Fennig made the call to not bring Edwards in a second time under yellow. The strategy moved Edwards toward the front of the field and he moved his way to the front. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you got somebody like Carl behind the wheel, and you put him out front, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to get it done,â&#x20AC;? Fennig said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To have two wins right now and to be locked in really feels good.â&#x20AC;?

While many packed up their cars and left, Boss, who had given up a weekend on his pontoon boat, still wanted to compete. Boss, who started his company as a 19-yearold, never promoted any type of event before, and felt compelled to put on a show for those that also planned to compete. He grabbed the microphone and announced that he would be offering prize money to those that were willing to stay. He estimates about 25 to 30 people stayed to run their cars in the

four events to compete for the $1,000 prize that Boss was offering for the winner of each event. He had about $2,600 in cash in his truck, and asked his girlfriend to get a hold of the remainder of the money that he was prepared to offer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a 5-minute idea,â&#x20AC;?

Brandon Cumpton pitched seven scoreless innings, Travis Snider hit a solo homer and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Chicago Cubs 2-1 on Sunday. Cumpton (3-2) won his third straight decision as the Pirates won the last two games of the threegame series. Cumpton allowed just two hits and two walks while striking out four. The rookie right-hander retired 13 of the first 14 batters he faced. He allowed just a first-ining single to Ryan Sweeney, and a sixthinning single to Cubs starter Jason Hammel. Twins 6, White Sox 5: Joe Mauer had two hits and two RBIs, and Minnesota won at home to complete its first four-game sweep against Chicago since June 9-12, 1994.

Mark Ellis drove in two runs, including the goahead score with a bunt, and St. Louis got a scoreless effort from its bullpen at Busch Stadium. Ellis broke a 3-all tie with a safety squeeze bunt in the fourth. He added an RBI single in the sixth for the Cardinals, who have won seven of their last 10. Carlos Martinez (1-3) allowed three runs over five innings. Nick Greenwood, Sam Freeman, Pat Neshek, and Trevor Rosenthal combined for four innings of two-hit scoreless relief.

INEHURST, N.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It was the only way this could end, an unprecedented 2 weeks of golf that will never be replicated and might never even be tried again. It had to be Michelle Wie. The U.S. Open was memorable for Martin Kaymerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dominance, if not for an excess of drama. Relatively speaking, the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Open was an even bigger deal for the women, playing Pinehurst No. 2 immediately after the men. Here, at one of the cornerstones of golf in the United States, only an American champion would suffice. This ground-breaking event demanded a breakthrough winner. Wie delivered both Sunday, as only she could. After walking down the 18th fairway with Kaymer a week ago, Wie had a triumphant walk of her own Sunday. How badly did the 24-yearold want this? When she sat back down after her remarks to the crowd, she grabbed the trophy off the table and held it in her lap. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The course is spectacular,â&#x20AC;? Wie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think winning on the same golf course that Payne Stewart won means so much to me, as well. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much history to this golf course. The fact that I can be part of that history, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just so cool. I feel so honored.â&#x20AC;? Wie made it far more interesting than Kaymer, with a blow-up doublebogey on the 16th hole that sent red-hot Stacy

Lewis out to the driving range to prepare for a possible playoff. But Wie held it together on the final two holes, cementing her position as the only player to finish this tournament under par, and won by two strokes. After Wieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birdie on No. 17, it was all over but the shouting, although there was plenty of it: For Juli Inkster, 53, in contention in her 35th and final Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Open. For Lucy Li, the 11-year-old who missed the cut, but spent the weekend walking with Wie. And for Wie, whose popularity has long outstripped her success, at least until this weekend. She stared down Lewis and the leader board just as she stared down the expectations that have accompanied her entire career. She came into the weekend talking

about having fun, and whatever happened would happen. And yet she displayed an obvious maturity that suggested her time might finally have come. It had. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a matter of time,â&#x20AC;? Lexi Thompson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t script this any better,â&#x20AC;? Lewis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was all worth it,â&#x20AC;? Wie said. It might have been the greatest Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Open of all time. It was without question the most unique. No one would ever forget this fortnight anyway, but Wieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory was a fitting conclusion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a lot better,â&#x20AC;? Pinehurst Resort and Country Club owner Bob Dedman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have two great champions. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both young, and they both played phenomenal golf. Martin Kaymer, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we appreciate how good he

played. Years from now, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be talking about it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 65 on both the first two rounds, when no one else was doing it? It was impressive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And give Michelle Wie credit, she played a conservative game today, but she played her game and got around. Two young champions: Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 29, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 24, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be around golf for quite a while.â&#x20AC;? Dedman, standing in the twilight on the 18th green, was both giddy and exhausted, for good reason. Pinehurst proved an ideal venue for this grand experiment, and Kaymer, Wie and Donald Ross ensured it was truly memorable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kaymer with his dominance, Wie with her long-awaited breakthrough, and Ross with a 107-year-old golf course that still comes out a winner every time.

Commodores give Longhorns the hook Vandy to meet Virginia in finals "Y4HE!SSOCIATED0RESS

OMAHA, Neb. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tyler Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bases-loaded infield single in the bottom of the 10th inning gave Vanderbilt a 4-3 win over Texas on Saturday night, and sent the Commodores to the College World Series finals against Virginia. Campbell was in his second game filling in for third baseman Xavier Turner, who was ruled ineligible Friday for a violation of NCAA rules. Campbell had only 21 at-bats this season when he stepped to the plate in the 10th. He sent a slow grounder toward shortstop C.J. Hinojosa, who charged the ball, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it to first in time to get Campbell. Rhett Wiseman scored on the play. Freshman Hayden Stone (3-0) struck out eight in 5 2/3 innings of relief of Carson Fulmer.

The Rebels (48-21) lost to Virginia for a second time in the CWS, ending their first trip to Omaha since 1972.

Lewis was on the range preparing for a playoff when her caddie told her Wie made birdie on the 17th. Moments later, Lewis was on the 18th green to hug Wie. Like most players, she was perplexed why Wie would spend so much time trying to compete against the men when she still didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an LPGA Tour card. They are friends now and practice frequently. Lewis said she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the least bit surprised that Wie delivered such a clutch moment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that scene on 18, being on network TV, as many people as we had around there at Pinehurst No. 2, and Michelle Wie winning the golf tournament, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you can script it any better,â&#x20AC;? Lewis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great for the game of golf. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even better for womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golf. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so happy for Michelle Wie. I mean, this has been such a long time coming for her.â&#x20AC;? Wie had a chance to win this title when she was a 15-year-old amateur at Cherry Hills, and a 16-yearold pro at Newport. The last time she was in this area, she opened with an 82 at Pine Needles in 2007, and walked off the course the next day because of injuries. She had been one of the biggest stars in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golf since she was 13 and played in the final group of a major. Her popularity soared â&#x20AC;&#x201C; along with criticism â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when she competed against the men on the PGA Tour while still in high school, and talked about wanting to play in the Masters. That seems like a lifetime ago. The 6-foot Wie is all grown up. She is a Stanford graduate, popular among pros of both genders, and now a major champion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe this is happening,â&#x20AC;? Wie said. It almost didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Just like so much of her life, the path included a sharp twist no one saw coming. Wie started the final round tied with Amy Yang, took the lead when Yang made double bogey on No. 2, and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let anyone catch her the rest of the day. In trouble on the tough fourth hole, she got up-and-down from 135 yards with an 8-iron into 3

Michelle Wie chips onto the fifth green during the final round of the U.S. Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Open on Sunday in Pinehurst, N.C. Wie won by two strokes over Stacy Lewis, the No. 1-ranked player in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golf. feet. Right when Lewis was making a big run, Wie answered by ripping a drive on the shortened par-5 10th and hitting a cut 8-iron into 10 feet for eagle and a four-shot lead. She had not made a bogey since the first hole â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and then it all nearly unraveled. From a fairway bunker on the 16th, holding a three-shot lead, she stayed aggressive and hit a hybrid from the sand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was kind of a dummy for not laying up when I was in that situation,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it kind of bit me in the butt. But I laughed it off. Stuff like that does happen.â&#x20AC;? The only time panic began to set in was when no one could find her ball. It finally was located after a 3-minute search, buried in a wiregrass bush. She quickly and wisely took a penalty drop behind her in the fairway to limit the damage, chipped to about 35 feet, and ran that putt some 5 feet by the hole. Miss it and she would be tied. Bent over in that table-top putting stance, she poured it in to avoid her first three-putt of the

week. Smiling as she left the green, she hit 8-iron to 25 feet and delivered a putt that will surely rank among the highlights in U.S. Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Open history. Wie finished at 2-under 278, the only player to beat par in the second week of championship golf at Pinehurst. Martin Kaymer won by eight shots last week at 9-under 271, the second-lowest score in U.S. Open history. Juli Inkster, playing her 35th and final U.S. Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Open, closed with a 75 to tie for 15th. She received the loudest ovation of the week walking up the 18th, until Wie arrived as the winner. What a journey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that without your downs, without the hardship, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you appreciate the ups as much as you do,â&#x20AC;? Wie said, the gleaming trophy at her side. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the fact that I struggled so much, the fact that I kind of went through a hard period of my life, the fact that this trophy is right next to me, it means so much more to me than it ever would have when I was 15. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel extremely lucky.â&#x20AC;?

United Statesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Clint Dempsey celebrates with his teammates after scoring his sideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second goal during a group G World Cup match against Portugal in Manaus, Brazil on Sunday. The two teams played to a 2-2 draw.

U.S. has World Cup fever

C

hicago soccer legend Willy Roy noticed the strangest thing during a trip last week to Wood Dale American Legion Post 1205: People wanted to talk soccer. Even for a man who built his life around the beautiful game, this almost never happens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Older people, my friends, are watching World Cup games and trying to follow, so they ask me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Willy, what is offsides? What is the penalty kick?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Roy, 71, a U.S. national team player from 1965-73 who also coached the Chicago Sting to two championships in the 1980s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So you try to educate these people, because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a growing interest in soccer from my generation, too. More people are saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wow, this game is interesting.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Sorry, soccer mockers, it definitely is. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need ESPN reporting a 23 percent increase in viewers from the 2010 World Cup as confirmation. You hear it around town in casual conversation about American midfielder Clint Dempseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s broken nose, and talkradio debate over Team USA coach Juergen Klinsmann breaking his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spirit. More proof comes in Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watch party for the U.S.Portugal game moving to lower Hutchinson Field in Grant Park to accommodate a World Cup fan base in Chicago larger and livelier than many envisioned. It has become cool to know a cap isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just something you put on your head. John Brooks, the son of an American serviceman from Chicago, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to score the winning goal against Ghana to make this a local story.

Roy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If [the Sting] would have had a wonderful stadium like the Fire, A futbol city indeed. you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen so able to buy a ticket.

But I think they 1994 World Cup here are can achieve one.â&#x20AC;? Identifying five Team adults now whose chilUSA players comes easdren play the sport.â&#x20AC;? ier for Roy, who knows Bender belonged to Klinsmann, and praised Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1994 World the coach for deflecting Cup organizing comattention from his young mittee, when Soldier team with controversial Field drew 312,725 fans pre-tournament comfor five games. Tribune ments that America sports columnist Bernie couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win. Lincicome declared in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Klinsmann has done the July 10, 1994 edition: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a mistake to believe an outstanding job,â&#x20AC;? Roy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know the U.S. that the World Cup has changed anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the talent the top-echelon teams about soccer here.â&#x20AC;? have. He was just trying On the editorial page, to take the pressure off. the experience was I think the U.S. is on the deemed â&#x20AC;&#x153;a smashing verge of doing something success.â&#x20AC;? Surely, opinspecial, and the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ions still differ on the getting behind that.â&#x20AC;?

Americans can still advance U.S.

CONTINUED FROM B1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re disappointed, but at the end of the day youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to look at the positives, we got a point,â&#x20AC;? said United States captain Clint Dempsey, who scored to give the Americans a 2-1 lead in the 81st. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going down to the last game and hopefully we get the job done.â&#x20AC;? Nani scored first for Portugal, shooting past a sprawling Howard in the fifth minute. But the Americans responded in the second half as Portugal seemed to wilt in the stifling heat. Jermaine Jones made it 1-1 with a curling shot in the 64th after a cross from Graham Zusi made its way through the Portugal defense. And Dempsey, playing with a broken nose, then put the Americans ahead, using his stomach to direct the ball into the net from a cross by Zusi. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we have to go out and beat Germany, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

what we have to do,â&#x20AC;? U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to play Germany, we have one less day to recover, we played in the Amazon, they played on a place with less travel. We have to do it the tough way.â&#x20AC;? Dempseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal was his fourth at a World Cup and second at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament. Jones scored his third goal for the United States national team and first in almost two years. It was all Portugal for much of the first half, with Ronaldo in the starting lineup but getting less involved as the match progressed. The Americans, however, started to get more and more chances and even had a shot from Michael Bradley cleared off the line by Ricardo Costa in the 55th. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be any problem with Cristiano Ronaldo,â&#x20AC;? Portugal coach Paulo Bento said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What happened during the game has something to do with our other players.â&#x20AC;?

The heat in the Amazon rainforest, however, seemed to slow the Portuguese as the match wore on. In the 39th minute, referee Nestor Pitana of Argentina called for a cooling break, the first such decision to be taken at this World Cup. At the start of the match, FIFA listed the temperature at 30 degrees C (86 degrees F) with 66 percent humidity. FIFA uses the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wet Bulb Globe Temperatureâ&#x20AC;? to determine when official cooling breaks should be added, and says the WGBT must be above 32 degrees C (90 degrees F) for them to be considered. The breaks are supposed to occur in the 30th and 75th minutes. There was no break in the second half, but that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop Ronaldo from creating the final goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a thriller,â&#x20AC;? Klinsmann said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody who had a chance to be today in Manaus will talk about this game for a long time.â&#x20AC;?
