STERLING | FIREFIGHTERS’ CONTRACT

DIXON | STREETSCAPE PROJECT

More closures in Week 6

City OKs 3-year deal Raise will be 6 percent over life of contract BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5570

STERLING – The city approved a new 3-year labor contract with its firefighters union at a special city council meeting Monday. The union, IAFF Local 2301, had ratified the contract June 14, but there wasn’t enough time to get it on the agenda for the June 16 council meeting. Requests to add agenda items must be received at least 48 hours before the meeting. So the city decided to call a special council meeting to speed up the process. “They bargained in good faith, so a special meeting was called because it would have been awhile until the next meeting, City Manager Scott Shumard said. The next regular council meeting is July 7. The firefighters will get a 1.75 percent raise in the first and second years of the deal, and a 2.5 percent raise in the final year, for a total of 6 percent over the life of the contract.

DIXON – Work on the downtown streetscape project has entered its sixth week. Peoria Avenue, between First and Third streets, will be closed as construction crews work on finishing curb and gutter work, sidewalks, driveways, light pole bases and water service installations, among other elements, according to the engineering firms. According to the firms, Wendler Engineering Services Inc. and Willett Hofmann & Associates: First Street, from Hennepin to Galena avenues, will remain closed. Crews are expected to do sidewalk and brick work, with pavement installation beginning mid-week. The south side – eastbound lanes – of First Street, between Ottawa and Crawford avenues, will be closed for water main installation. The construction company will work with KSB Hospital to have access to the Commerce Towers parking lot at all times. Ottawa Avenue, from Second to First streets, will be closed for continued work on a retaining wall. Additional temporary road closure may be needed, according to the engineering firms.

Oriana Kruszewski, owner of Oriana’s Oriental Orchards near Winslow, on May 31 shows one of the many pear trees in her orchard that, because of her grafting expertise, produce multiple varieties of pear. Some of her trees bear as many as 20 varieties.

Grafting a dream Technique key to budding orchard TONY CARTON 4HE*OURNAL 3TANDARD

WINSLOW (AP) – Oriana Kruszewski came to this country with her husband, Jack, from Hong Kong 43 years ago, wanting to own a piece of land. She says it didn’t have to be a lot of land. Or even the best quality ground. They were not strangers to hard work, and they wanted to produce good, wholesome food. Eventually, they bought 40 acres near Winslow and launched their dream – Oriana’s Oriental Orchard. “When I came here, I missed certain things, like the Asian pear,� Oriana said. “When I buy one here, they look beautiful; they come with a jacket, but are very expensive. I wished I could grow them, and that’s how I got started.� She calls herself a solo farmer, because she works about 6 acres pretty much by herself. Jack still helps but works full-time off the farm, and they are both getting older. “All my trees I make myself,� Oriana said. “I look around and, when someone tells me they have a pear that’s very good, I taste it. If I like it, I graft it on my own tree, and in a couple years I taste the pear again. If I still like it, I keep it.� Grafting is a technique by which a section of a stem with leaf buds is inserted into the stock of a tree. It is used to reproduce an original cultivar, repair injured fruit

trees or for top-working an established tree to one or more different cultivars. Nurseries often use a budding method to produce fruit trees. “You got to love this or you wouldn’t do it,� Oriana said. “In my third year, I lost about 20 percent of my trees to the cold weather. I decided maybe everybody was right, and I could not grow Asian pears in this part of the world, so I walked away from my trees. But later, I thought I would try again.� She went back to work. Upon closer inspection, Oriana realized most of her root stock was still viable, so she started bud grafting them with hundreds of scions. After a few years, her orchard began to show fruit. She was on her way. “I planted and then grafted all the trees myself,� she said. “Based on experience, I learned. There are so many ways you can make a tree. I try my own way. I pruned by hand and watered by hand. I did everything by hand, and my trees came back.� Today, Oriana’s Oriental Orchard is USDA Certified Organic. She waters using her own underground spring and refuses to use chemical pesticides or herbi-

cides, instead choosing a specific time to mow that she says keeps bugs from jumping into her trees. Oriana and Jack mow the 6-acre orchard area several times a season, and now tend to more than 500 trees. She annually sells more that a ton of Asian pears, pawpaws and persimmons, as well as a selection of berries, black walnuts and unusual fruit trees for home gardens at farmers markets or from their orchard. “I like the farmers markets a lot, because my food goes directly to the person who will enjoy it,� Oriana said. Oriana is determined to share her grafting knowledge. She hosts an annual workshop on the farm and is working in the Chicago area with After School Matters, a not-for-profit organization offering Chicago high school students innovative out-ofschool activities. “Many schools there have small gardens now and are beginning to work with small orchards,� she said. “I’ve been doing workshops and helping encourage young people to grow fruit. Grafting is a simple technique. The timing and the materials are important, but everyone can do it.�

DEKALB

IN BRIEF

Butcher shop and barbecue blues

Board meeting rescheduled

Effects of drought, disease in past year has pork, beef prices increasing BY JESSI HAISH jhaish@shawmedia.com

DeKALB – It might cost you a little more to host a barbecue this summer. Pork prices have risen following after an outbreak of porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) virus in the past year, while beef prices are up after a cattle sell-off that came after drought conditions drove up grain prices. “Everything that’s happened in the last year and a half is hitting the stores now,� said Ken Beever, secretary of the DeKalb-Kane County Cattlemen’s Association, which is an affiliate of the Illinois Beef Association. The price consumers pay in the Midwest for ground beef was up 11.8 percent in April over the previous year and 4.4 percent over the previous month, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The price of a round, boneless, USDA Choice steak was up 17.8 percent year-overyear in April, the bureau reported. With beef and pork prices on the rise, Tom Inboden, owner of Inboden’s Meat Market at 1106 N. First St., is seeing the changes reflected in his store. “We knew it was coming, but we didn’t know it was going to be this bad,� Inboden said. “But we can’t be quick to charge higher prices, because that might chase people away. There are a lot of people trying to get back on their feet right now. It’s not a good time to raise prices on people.� Inboden is able to use commercial business and catering to offset smaller profit margins in his retail business, he said. Local farm-

Butram, who lives in Belvidere, made a special trip to Inboden’s Meat Market and she says that she’s willing to pay more for quality. ers are seeing different effects that might not be easy to combat, but they are using different tactics to make up for losses. The PED virus outbreak, which is believed to have originated in China and poses the most risk to piglets, has led to larger pigs being marketed. Mike Wolt-

mann, general manager of Illini Farms in Kingston, said grain prices are considerably lower than they were last year, and farms can afford to feed the animals more. The heavier weight per pig is an effort to make up for the many pigs that were lost to the virus, most of which were piglets, Woltmann said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The average weight of a pig being marketed is heavier this year,â&#x20AC;? Woltmann said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re setting record highs for pig weights this year.â&#x20AC;? Woltmann said about half of DeKalb County hog farms were affected by the virus, in some cases losing an entire monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of pork production. He said because local pork producers are clustered together in the county, the virus was able to easily move throughout. He said effects were significant in the area because DeKalb County has more than 230,000 pigs, making it No. 2 in the state for pork production numbers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those [farmers who] donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t experience the virus will see record high profit,â&#x20AC;? Woltmann said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They will have the ability to expand and grow.â&#x20AC;?

Woltmann said while pigs are slow to turn over in numbers after something like a virus affects the stock, he said beef is even slower. Beever said at his farm in Maple Park, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learned that playing the markets and networking are the best ways to bounce back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re networking with other producers, seeing what prices they are getting in other places, like Nebraska,â&#x20AC;? Beever said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The weather played a big factor.â&#x20AC;? A major drought about a year and a half ago meant many cattle farmers sold off their animals, unable to feed them. The shortage of meat following that is now trickling down to the stores, Beever said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impacting the consumer rather than the producers,â&#x20AC;? he said. At the store, retailers are seeing the effects as well. Inboden has spent time analyzing profit/loss margins and competition to deal with the rising cost of meat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When this happens, we are fortunate that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve built a niche,â&#x20AC;? Inboden said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;About 70 percent of our customers are 52-weeksa-year customers. Our customers may be economizing somewhere else.â&#x20AC;? Inboden said although food prices can fluctuate in cycles, he tries to keep his prices as surprise-free as possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just have to bite the bullet for a while,â&#x20AC;? Inboden said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things will go back and be affordable.â&#x20AC;?

7 ex-officials called to testify Commission last issued subpoenas in early 1980s CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A legislative subcommittee voted Monday to subpoena seven former state officials connected to Gov. Pat Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s troubled anti-violence initiative thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also under federal and Cook County probes. The rare move â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Legislative Audit Commission last issued subpoenas in the early 1980s â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would mean that the former state officials would be compelled to turn in documents and testify next month over 2 days about the 2010 Neighborhood Recovery Initiative, which was blasted in a state audit earlier this year for mismanagement and misspending. The subpoenas still required a sign off from state Rep. Frank Mautino, a Democratic co-chair of the commission that reviews state audits. The subcommittee was initially going to take up one subpoena for Barbara Shaw, former director of an agency that was responsible for running the $55 million anti-violence program. But Democrats said they wanted a more complete list to speed up the process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about trying to put closure to this,â&#x20AC;? said state Rep. Bob Rita, a Blue Island Democrat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we could do is end these 2-day hearings, not drag this out.â&#x20AC;? The other individuals committee members

approved subpoenas for include Jack Lavin, Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former chief of staff; Malcolm Weems, the former chief of the Department of Central Management Services; and Toni Irving, a former deputy chief of staff. They could not be immediately reached for comment. Shawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney has said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll respond, if subpoenaed. Mautino was expected to sign off on the Shaw subpoena, but the fate of the six others was unclear. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t immediately return a message. The commission meets July 16-17. Questions over the anti-violence program have dogged Quinn for months and become fodder for his Republican gubernatorial challenger, Bruce Rauner. Earlier this year, a state auditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report outlined â&#x20AC;&#x153;pervasive deficienciesâ&#x20AC;? in implementing the program and questioned expenditures by service providers. The program, which included job training in violence-plagued Chicago neighborhoods, was created weeks ahead of the 2010 election where Quinn won by a thin margin. That prompted some Republicans to later deem it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;political slush fundâ&#x20AC;? for Quinn to solidify city votes. The Chicago Democrat has said no money was issued ahead of the election and that he worked to address problems, including dismantling the overseeing Illinois Violence Prevention Authority.

CHICAGO

Wisconsin Energy buying Integrys for $5.8B Combined company to serve more than 4.3 million in Midwest MILWAUKEE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Wisconsin Energy Corp. is buying Integrys Energy Group Inc. for about $5.8 billion in cash and stock to form a more diverse Midwest electric and natural gas delivery company. The combined company will be called WEC Energy Group Inc. and serve more than 4.3 million total gas and electric customers across Wisconsin, Illinois,

Michigan and Minnesota. The transaction will combine Wisconsin Energyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electric and gas utility, We Energies, with Integrysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; electric and gas utilities, Wisconsin Public Service, Peoples Gas, North Shore Gas, Minnesota Energy Resources and Michigan Gas Utilities. WEC Energy will hold a 60 percent stake in American Transmission Co.

Under the deal announced Monday, Integrys stockholders will receive 1.128 Wisconsin Energy shares and $18.58 in cash for each share they own. That amounts to $71.47 per Integrys share, a 17 percent premium to the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Friday closing stock price of $60.95. The payout will be 74 percent in stock and 26 percent in cash.

Wisconsin Energy and Integrys put the transactionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total value at $9.1 billion including the assumption of $3.3 billion in debt. Shareholders of Chicagobased Integrys will own approximately 28 percent of the combined company. Both companiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; boards unanimously approved the deal, which is targeted to close in the summer of 2015.

City manager: Police negotiations â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;more fracturedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; DEAL

CONTINUED FROM A1

Lt. Matt Laughlin, the fire departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s union representative, said wages and salaries were the only components of the new contract that were negotiated. The benefits did not change from the previous contract. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fair compromise between the city and firefighters union,â&#x20AC;? Laughlin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We compromised on everything; there really wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much subtle diplomacy. They presented some numbers, we did too, and they were pretty close.â&#x20AC;? The biggest challenge this time around was changing contract language to bring the three captains into the union fold. Until now, the captains had not been under city contract, and had been â&#x20AC;&#x153;at-willâ&#x20AC;? employees. Labor law dictates that â&#x20AC;&#x153;at-willâ&#x20AC;? employees do not have some of the protections afforded by a

union contract, especially with regard to termination. Language had already been changed in April for the new deputy chief position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the get-go, we knew there would be a lot of language changes to bring the captains under the umbrella,â&#x20AC;? Laughlin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By law, the captains canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go down in pay because they joined the union. They were all at different longevity levels, so we had to compromise on where they fall on the scale.â&#x20AC;? The previous contract had expired April 30,

which triggered an automatic extension. The first negotiating session between the city and the firefighters union was Feb. 13. Despite the missed deadline, both sides thought the process went smoothly in comparison with previous contracts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always try to get this done by expiration, but the city manager has a lot going on,â&#x20AC;? Laughlin said. Shumard concurred with Laughlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessment of the negotiations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They went very well this year,â&#x20AC;? Shumard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things were drawn out,

just because there was other stuff going on that the city was dealing with.â&#x20AC;? One of those things would be trying to hammer out a deal with the police union. That contract expired in April 2013. Shumard said there is nothing new on that negotiating front. The process, generally speaking, can be very different with police and fire contracts, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things can be more fractured with police,â&#x20AC;? Shumard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are more unions vying for membership, and it can get very competitive.â&#x20AC;?

The city lost three firefighter positions in 2010, which were never brought back. Laughlin hopes that the administrative consolidation with Rock Falls will eventually save enough money to at least keep the department at current staffing levels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all on the same page,â&#x20AC;? Laughlin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refreshing that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making progress

with labor relations.â&#x20AC;? Mayor Skip Lee agreed that the negotiating environment has improved from years past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both sides were very eager to reach a deal in a manner that was respectful and not adversarial,â&#x20AC;? Lee said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to commend city staff and union workers for remembering that the safety of the citizens are our main responsibility.â&#x20AC;?

THANK YOU Larry and I would like to sincerely thank all of our wonderful family, friends, coworkers, students and complete strangers for the cards, video, food, flowers, gifts, visits, laughs, help, calls, messages, thoughts and prayers. Each and every one of you are truly appreciated. Also, thank you to the Franklin Grove Emergency Response Team and the entire KSB staff. This would have been nearly impossible without the support.

FDA

Study: Heart pacer-zapper benefits women more Possible reasons include differences in physiology, body size, authors say CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Women with heart failure are less likely to get a special kind of pacemaker than men, but more likely to benefit from the device, a government analysis suggests. The findings come from the first study of its kind conducted by researchers at the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA has done similar analyses of prescription drugs, but not of medical devices, said lead author Dr. David Strauss, an FDA medical officer. Relatively few women have been included in studies of

pacemakers and other medical devices, which â&#x20AC;&#x153;has made it difficult to assess differences in the safety and effectiveness of these devices for women vs. men,â&#x20AC;? Strauss said. The study authors said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unclear why women would benefit more from these special pacemakers but possibilities include differences in physiology and body size. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also uncertain why the pacemakers are used less in women but an editorial published with the study says heart devices in general are more commonly used in men, possibly because of scarce scientific evidence that they work in women. The researchers pooled results in three previous pacemaker

studies, involving more than 4,000 patients, mostly men. Still, there were 878 women included â&#x20AC;&#x201C; enough to assess gender differences in treatment results, the researchers said. Their analysis was published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine. Pacemakers are small devices implanted in the chest that emit electrical signals to regulate the heartbeat. They are often used to treat heart failure, which occurs when the heart muscle has weakened and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t efficiently pump blood. Those studied are a special kind called cardiac resynchronization devices, and include a defibrillator to detect and zap life-threatening beats. They are

used to treat a particular type of heart failure involving the two lower chambers of the heart. Women who got the special pacemakers were 60 percent less likely to die or develop heart failure-related complications during 2 years of follow-up than those who got implanted defibrillators alone. For men, the risk reduction was just 26 percent. The difference in benefits was even greater for women with a specific abnormality â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 76 percent were less like to die or develop complications. There was no pacemaker benefit for men in this group. About 20 percent of women studied and 15 percent of the men had that irregularity.

WILL COUNTY

In absolute terms, the special pacemakers helped an additional 23 women out of every 100 with that abnormality avoid complications or death during the follow-up. Of about 100,000 Americans receiving the special pacemakers per year, fewer than 30 percent are women, 2010 data suggest. Strauss said it is unclear exactly how many more women should be using these devices, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;more than a handful.â&#x20AC;? But Strauss said the study has â&#x20AC;&#x153;a bigger-picture messageâ&#x20AC;? about the importance of including women and other under-represented patients in medical research to find out if treatments work differently.

Courthouse too small for big crowds Construction work Judge seeking new judicial complex JOLIET (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The chief judge in Will County, seeing the same lines of people snaking outside the Joliet courthouse, the same crowds of people packed into hallways and tiny courtrooms as anyone who has ever visited, is pushing for a new judicial complex. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is not built to handle this many,â&#x20AC;? Judge Richard Schoenstedt told the Southtown Star. In fact, the courthouse that has handled some of suburban Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest trials, includ-

ing the murder trial of former police Sgt. Drew Peterson, is woefully inadequate to handle the thousands of people who descend on it daily to stand trial, sit on juries, pay traffic tickets and seek orders of protection. Built in 1969, when the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population was 175,000, the four-story building now must serve the needs of a county with a population of nearly 683,000. That has meant turning a building of six courtrooms, county offices and county board chambers into a judicial facility of nearly two dozen small courtrooms

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; some literally in spaces that were once closets and employee lounges. The building is so crowded that prisoners must be moved from courtroom to courtroom in the same corridor used by judges, jurors, witnesses and police, creating a host of potential problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they [defendants] are angry and feel they have nothing to lose, they might lash out,â&#x20AC;? said Schoenstedt. And, he said, the mix of defendants and jurors might hurt defendantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chance at a fair trial, because jurors could see them in shackles and assume they are guilty.

The county has purchased a nearby building and plans to demolish it to build a new court facility at a cost of as much as $200 million. The county is perhaps a couple of years from a new courthouse, in large part because it is still looking for money to pay for it. But Schoenstedt was encouraged by a bill passed by state lawmakers and now on Gov. Pat Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desk awaiting his signature that would allow the county to collect a new court fee that could generate as much as $2 million a year for a new building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice start,â&#x20AC;? Schoenstedt said.

cruising on campus

Renovation of State Farm Center one of the projects CHAMPAIGN (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Construction projects are in high gear at the University of Illinois campus in ChampaignUrbana, now that the school year is over and fewer people are on campus. At least five major projects are going on now or will start soon, The News Gazette reports. The $165 million, multi-phase renovation of the State Farm Center is one of the projects. Work this summer will largely lay the groundwork for bigger changes to come. U of I senior associate athletic director Tom Michael said there have been a few, minor â&#x20AC;&#x153;bumps,â&#x20AC;? but overall the project

is on schedule. The $95 million renovation of the Electrical and Computer Engineering facility is nearing completion. The 235,000-square-foot building will have more than 1,000 solar panels on the roof. New dorms are being built at a nearly $77 million price tag. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have nearly 500 beds, include semisuites, and should open in fall 2016. Construction is scheduled to finish in spring of next year on a $14 million center for wounded veterans. And after several delays, a more than $73 million renovation of the Natural History Building, which dates to 1892, is to start next month. The building has been partially closed since 2010 because of concerns over structural integrity.

THE CARTOONISTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S VOICE

Media focuses on wrong area of petition spat Real issue has to do with lack of proper registration

As John Adams stated about the Declaration of Independence: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It ought to be commemorated as a day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of the continent to the other.â&#x20AC;? We agree. Note to readers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Max Baumgardner is a member of the Franklin Grove Area Historical Society and writes the programs for the Independence Day celebration at Chaplin Creek Pioneer Village, 1715 Whitney Road (about one-fourth mile south of Franklin Grove on the west side of the road).

Almost 90 percent of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes for Independent Mapsâ&#x20AC;? petition entries tossed as invalid by the Illinois State Board of Elections this month were for people who were not registered to vote or werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t registered to vote at the address shown on the petitions, official documents show. The group is attempting to get a constitutional amendment on the ballot to reform the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s indisputably hyper-partisan legislative redistricting process. Yet, the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s media, led by the Chicago Tribune editorial page, has almost solely focused on problems with signatures that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t match up to voter registration cards. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s either a gross misunderstanding of the situation or a deliberate deception. The State Board of Elections used a computer program to choose 25,000 petition entries at random out of the 500,000 or so entries turned in by the remap reform group. Board employees then examined the entries and struck 13,807 as invalid, for a failure rate of about 55 percent. Of those, 7,535 entries (55 percent of the total rejected) were from people who were not registered to vote, according to Rupert Borgsmiller, Board of Elections director. Another 4,565 (33 percent) were signers who werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t registered to vote at the address shown on the petition. The Yes for Independent Maps folks say they believe they can â&#x20AC;&#x153;rehabilitateâ&#x20AC;? 4,130 of those, but that would be highly unusual. But despite the fact that the remap reform group mainly lost petition challenges based on voter registration, the news media has stubbornly continued to focus on the relatively tiny fight over whether petition signatures matched up to signatures on voter registration cards.

whom these funds were spent, HHS is already doling out tens of millions more dollars to states to promote enrollment in 2015. Taxpayers deserve to know whether the state bureaucrats are spending these scarce resources wisely. Before Illinois bureaucrats accept another dime of federal taxpayer dollars, there should be a full accounting of these funds. Without oversight and transparency, the opportunities for further shenanigans seem endless. Note to readers: Naomi Lopez-Bauman is director of health policy for the Illinois Policy Institute.

THE REALITY IS THAT just 937 petition entries (7 percent of the total rejected) were tossed because the signatures didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t match up to voter registration files. Another 721 (5 percent) were tossed because the State Boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff examiners couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read the signatures and/ or the address to figure out who the person actually was. Yet, a Chicago Associated Press story published last week focused solely on â&#x20AC;&#x153;signatures,â&#x20AC;? as did a Tribune news story, as did two Tribune editorials, as did pretty much everyone else. Obviously, if the problem is merely matching up signatures, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a subjective exercise and ripe for potential abuse. But

GUEST COLUMN | FOURTH OF JULY

Independence Day event extols Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freedoms Declarationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impact felt in 21st century MAX BAUMGARDNER Franklin Grove

John Hancock, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, and 52 other patriots signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776. (They all didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sign it on July 4, even though we usually focus on that as the signing date.) That document is possibly the most important ever produced in what is now the United States of America. Have you ever thought about what that document signing did for you and your family? Do you own real estate or a car or a TV set? Do you have some savings for rainy days and retirement? Do you have kids in Little League or high school athletics? Have you attended college or do you have offspring now attending? Have you been on a jury or maybe even been tried by a jury?

Have you sat and mused in your lawn chair about what is â&#x20AC;&#x153;truthâ&#x20AC;?? Do you regularly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or, at least, periodically â&#x20AC;&#x201C; attend a house of worship? Do you own an iPhone, an Max iPad, or a DVD player? Baumgardner Those are just a few of the tremendous number of things that we â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as Americans â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can own or do just because we are Americans and we are free. THIS YEAR, THE Franklin Grove Area Historical Society is again having some of your neighbors express to you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and other patriots â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;What does freedom mean to me.â&#x20AC;? They will be participants in the July 4 program at the Chaplin Creek Pioneer Village south of Franklin Grove. The neighbors will include a teacher who has been teaching children with special needs for 22 years and is now teaching children with

autism; a former coordinator of information services for the Smithsonian Institution; and an active member of a local historical society that is preserving many structures for posterity. There also will be appropriate patriotic music (including a brass band), colony flags and American flags, and praises to the Founding Fathers for leading the way to our freedoms. And then I hope you will marvel â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as I do â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with the actual reading aloud of the Declaration of Independence by Tom Wadsworth. This is the 10th consecutive year that Mr. Wadsworth has been at the podium to give voice to our great document. Please join us as we celebrate this event. The program starts at 9 a.m. July 4 and lasts about 1 hour. There will be refreshments after the reading, and you will be able to talk with the other patriots before heading home for your family holiday celebrations. Please call me at 815632-7843 if you have any questions about this event.

Full accounting needed for ACA grant spending NAOMI LOPEZ-BAUMAN Springfield

Carla Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s [Associated Press medical writer] excellent June 12 investigation, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; health care campaign among nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costliest,â&#x20AC;? revealed that â&#x20AC;&#x153;more than 90 people, including executives from the firm and its subcontractors, billed at least $270 an hour for salary and overhead during the first four monthsâ&#x20AC;? as part of a $33 million federal grant to Illinois to promote the

Affordable Care Act, or ACA. Johnson correctly pointed out that not only do those hourly wage rates for public relations professionals seem excessive, but Illinois also spent more on TV marketing and promotion than any other large state. But that is just a dent in the total federal grants that Illinois has received to implement and promote the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health insurance scheme. According to federal records, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, or HHS, awarded the state of Illinois $155 million in total

Write your own letter to the editor and send it to: letters@saukvalley. com grants (including the one that was the focus of the AP investigation) to implement and market the ACA in Illinois. While this money was spent in a number of areas, this total is the equivalent of almost $700 a person who selected a health insurance plan (but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily purchase one).

the real problem with the remap petitions is unregistered or improperly registered voters. These things simply are not subjective. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because of a backroom process, an uneven, rushed process, that it had gotten to this point,â&#x20AC;? remap reformer Michael Kolenc told reporters last week. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;unevenâ&#x20AC;? process has also been highlighted three times by the Tribune editoRupert rial board, Borgsmiller and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yet As director another groof the Illinois tesque disState Board tortion of the of Elections, facts. Borgsmiller is involved in A June the petition 5th Trisignature bune editoverification rial claimed process for proposed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Individual citizen ballot examinersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; referendums. invalidation rates ranged from 17 percent to 86 percent.â&#x20AC;? In one of two editorials last week, the Tribune finally admitted that they were talking about just two board staffers. SO, WHAT ABOUT those two examiners? Well, if you look at the actual data, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see that the two staffers in question examined only a handful of entries. A tiny sample of a 5 percent total sample can mathematically explain any wild individual variations. The board assigned 38 staffers to the examination task. One staffer looked at just a single entry, so letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toss him out. Of the rest, the number of signatures examined ranged from 1,714 down to 91, for an average of 676 examined, and a median of 711. The staffer who â&#x20AC;&#x153;disqualified only 17 percentâ&#x20AC;? examined just 92 petition entries. The staffer who â&#x20AC;&#x153;disqualified 86 percentâ&#x20AC;? looked at just 183 entries. The overwhelming majority of the examiners had pretty close to the final rate of 55 percent invalid. The bottom line here is that this stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s media has fallen for spin thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made the State Board of Elections look like some evil entity. If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so, then why did the board certify Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Raunerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s term limits constitutional amendment, widely hated by insiders, last week? The most likely answer is almost always the simplest. Rauner obviously ran a tight ship. The remap folks apparently did not.

IN BRIEF

Drone killings memo released

Crowds gather to honor fallen soldier

Document outlined justification for use to kill American terror suspects NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The secret U.S. government memo outlining the justification for the use of drones to kill American terror suspects abroad was released by court order Monday, yielding the most detailed, inside look yet at the legal underpinnings of the Obama administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program of â&#x20AC;&#x153;targeted killings.â&#x20AC;? The 41-page memo â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whose contents had previously been summarized and released piecemeal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was heavily redacted for national security reasons, with several entire pages and other passages whited out. But it argues, among other things, that a targeted killing of a U.S. citizen is permissible under a 2001 law passed by Congress soon after 9/11. That law empowered the president to use force against organizations that planned and committed the attacks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The release of the memo will allow the public to better assess the lawfulness of the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s targeted killing policy and the implications of that policy,â&#x20AC;? said Jameel Jaffer, an American Civil Liberties Union attorney who argued for release of the memo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despite the release of this memo, the public still knows scandalously little about who the government is killing and why.â&#x20AC;? He said the memo contains the first formal acknowledgment by the government that the CIA is involved in the program. The July 2010 memo was written by a Justice Department official who is now a federal appeals court judge. It was released after a yearlong legal battle by The New York Times and the ACLU.

Imam Anwar al-Awlaki, an al-Qaida leader born in the United States, is shown here in October 2008 in Yemen. On Monday, a federal appeals court released a previously secret memo that provided legal justification for using drones to kill Americans suspected of terrorism overseas. The memo pertained specifically to the September 2011 dronestrike killing of Al-Awlaki. The memo specifically provided the legal justification for the September 2011 killing in Yemen of Anwar Al-Awlaki, an alQaida leader and onetime cleric at a Virginia mosque who was born in the United States, and another U.S. citizen, Samir Khan, who edited al-Qaidaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Internet magazine. An October 2011 strike also killed Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, al-Awlakiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teenage son and also a U.S. citizen. Al-Awlaki had been involved in an abortive attack against the United States and was planning other attacks from his base in Yemen, the memo said.

It said the authority to use lethal force abroad may apply in certain circumstances to a U.S. citizen who is part of the forces of an enemy organization. The memo said the Defense Department operation was being carried out against someone who was within the core of individuals against whom Congress had authorized the use of â&#x20AC;&#x153;necessary and appropriateâ&#x20AC;? force. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York released the memo after the Times and the ACLU sued for any documents in which Justice Department lawyers

had discussed the highly classified â&#x20AC;&#x153;targeted killingâ&#x20AC;? program. The appeals court ordered the memo disclosed after noting that President Barack Obama and other senior government officials had commented publicly on the subject. David E. McCraw, vice president and assistant general counsel for the Times, called the memo â&#x20AC;&#x153;a critical addition to the public debate over targeted killings and should fuel a richer discussion of the legal and security issues that are at the heart of that debate.â&#x20AC;? White House spokesman Josh Earnest, responding to criticism from groups that complained that it took a court order to get the memo released, said the administration worked through the legal system â&#x20AC;&#x153;to produce a redacted document that protected national security interests while at the same time trying to live up to our commitment to transparency.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this case, I think even the groups that sharply criticized us would call this a win for transparency,â&#x20AC;? Earnest said. The memo was written by David Barron, who at the time was acting chief of the Justice Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office of Legal Counsel. He was recently confirmed as a judge in the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston. U.S. officials considered al-Awlaki to be an inspirational leader of al-Qaida, and they have linked him to the planning and execution of several attacks targeting American and Western interests, including a 2009 attempt on Christmas Day to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner.

Use bids and plays to place key cards

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Agatha Christie said, “It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City. New York City is itself a detective story.” Little did she know what would happen after she was gone. But working out the right play or defense is often like a detective story. There are numerous clues that should be used to find the solution. In this deal, South is in four hearts. West leads the diamond 10: four, six, ace. How should East plan the defense? South opens with a textbook weak two-bid at unfavorable vulnerability: a good six-card suit and 6-10 highcard points. North knows game might

have no play, but the vulnerable game bonus is very tempting. East should ask himself which honors are held by South.

He has already produced the diamond ace and the bidding strongly suggests that he also has the heart king and queen. So he cannot have the club king. As a consequence, East can hope for two club tricks, the heart ace and either a diamond trick or a club ruff. South immediately takes two of dummy’s top spades to discard his diamond loser. Then he calls for the heart jack, feigning a finesse for the queen. But East should not fall for it. He should grab the trick with his ace and shift to his club four. West wins with his king and returns the club three. East takes that trick and gives his partner a club ruff. When defending, keep your eye on the target: the number of tricks your side needs to defeat the contract. © 2014 UFS

IRAQ

Kerry hands dire warning to nation over future Secretary of State says leaders need to work together BAGHDAD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Warning of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;existential threatâ&#x20AC;? posed by Sunni militants, Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday the U.S. is prepared to take military action even if Baghdad delays political reforms, noting that the risks of letting the insurgency run

rampant threaten dangers beyond Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s borders. But he stressed military action would not be in support of the present Shiiteled government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Kerry, on a few hoursâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; visit to Baghdad, urged Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders to quickly set aside divisions as the only means of stopping the vicious Sunni insurgency and said Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future depended on choices Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders make in the next days and weeks.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The future of Iraq depends primarily on the ability of Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders to come t o g e t h e r John Kerry and take a 533ECRETARY OF3TATE stand united against ISIL,â&#x20AC;? Kerry said, using the acronym for the al-Qaida-breakaway group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which has captured huge swaths of Iraqi territory.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not next week, not next month, but now,â&#x20AC;? Kerry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is essential that Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders form a genuinely inclusive government as rapidly as possible.â&#x20AC;? It was a dire warning to leaders of Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bitterly divided Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish communities that came at a time when the Middle Eastern nation was facing its worst crisis since the withdrawal of U.S. forces in late 2011 after 8

years in Iraq. The Sunni fighters have virtually erased Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s western border with Syria and also taken territory on the frontier with Jordan. Noting the dangers the Sunni militants pose to Iraq and the region, Kerry said the United States was prepared to take military action if necessary even before a new government is formed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why, again, I reiterate, the president will not be hampered if

he deems it necessary, if the formation is not complete,â&#x20AC;? he said, referring to Iraqi efforts to form a government that bridges the deep divisions among the majority Shiites and minority Sunnis, Kurds and other groups. Kerry stressed, however, that if military action is taken â&#x20AC;&#x201C; President Barack Obama has said he is considering airstrikes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;it has nothing to do with support for a specific government.â&#x20AC;?

CAIRO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; An Egyptian court on Monday convicted three Al-Jazeera journalists and sentenced them to 7 years in prison on terrorism-related charges after a trial dismissed by rights groups as a politically motivated sham. The verdict brought a landslide of international condemnation and calls for the newly elected president to intervene. The ruling stunned the defendants and their families, many of whom had hoped their loved ones would be released because of international pressure on the case. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who a day earlier had discussed the case in a meeting with President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, denounced the verdict as

â&#x20AC;&#x153;chilling and draconian.â&#x20AC;? The unprecedented trial of journalists on terror charges was tied up in the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fierce crackdown on Islamists and the Muslim Brotherhood since the ouster last year of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi by elSissi, then the army chief. Prosecutors had accused the three â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Australian Peter Greste, Canadian-Egyptian Mohamed Fahmy and Egyptian Baher Mohammed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; of promoting or belonging to the Brotherhood and of falsifying their coverage of protests by Morsiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supporters to hurt Egyptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s security and make it appear the country is sliding into civil war. The government has branded the Brotherhood a terrorist organization.

MISSISSIPPI | U.S. SENATE RACE

Budget realities confront rhetoric Like his opponent, McDaniels lobbying for federal dollars GAUTIER, Miss. (AP) – Republican primary challenger Chris McDaniel puts the nation’s $17 trillion debt at the center of his bid to represent Mississippi in the Senate, bashing six-term Sen. Thad Cochran as a profligate spender who Chris has c o n - McDaniel tributed to a problem that McDaniel considers “immoral.” At the same time, the potential tea Thad party hero Cochran pledges support for Mississippi’s military installations, defense contractors and public education system – all of which depend on hundreds of millions of federal dollars. “We have to put aside some of our personal interests if we’re going to save this republic,” McDaniel told voters at a recent campaign stop on the state’s Gulf Coast, then added, “I’m going to fight for the shipyards and our military.” Such attacks on Cochran for his years of steering federal money to his home state, mixed with promises to “fight for Mississippi” if elected to Congress, put McDaniel squarely in the rub faced by many conservative Republicans. Their opposition to higher taxes and increasing the nation’s borrowing limit is sacrosanct, yet they find it difficult when talking to voters to detail what spending they’d cut to balance the nation’s books. “The thing that’s really preposterous about some of these candidates is that they’re against everything – except the things that voters are for,” said Republican campaign consultant Bob McAlister, a veteran of several presidential campaigns in South Carolina. “Everybody wants to gut everything except that which affects them.” McDaniel led Cochran, 76, in the state’s June 3 primary but failed to win the majority required to avoid a runoff. They meet again today in an election that gives tea party conservatives their best shot this year at knocking off an incumbent Republican senator. For his part, Cochran has almost embraced McDaniel’s attacks. The former Appropriations Committee chairman, who would likely return to his old post in a Republican-led Senate, seeks a seventh term with the promise to “do more for Mississippi.” He discusses the government’s debt and deficit only when asked. “I think the debt is a problem we need to address, and we do have in place a budget process that has undergone reforms and changes over time,” Cochran said in an interview. “I want to be sure that we continue to be restrained when we are imposing taxes on the American people, be sure they’re fair, the funds are really needed, and they’re used consistently with the authority of the law.”

SUPREME COURT | GREENHOUSE GASES

Justices let some air out of program Limits placed on how EPA can regulate WASHINGTON (AP) – The Supreme Court largely left intact Monday the Obama administration’s only existing program to limit power plant and factory emissions of the gases blamed for global warming. But a divided court also rebuked environmental regulators for taking too much authority into their own hands without congressional approval. The justices said in a 5-4 vote along ideological lines that the Environmental Protection Agency cannot apply a permitting provision of the Clean Air Act to new and expanded power plants, refineries and factories solely because they emit greenhouse gases. The decision underscores the limits of using the Clean Air Act to deal with greenhouse gases and the administration’s inability to get climate change legislation through Congress. “The Supreme Court put EPA on a leash but not in a noose,” said Michael Gerrard, director of Columbia University’s Center for Climate Change Law. “It reaffirmed that EPA can regulate greenhouse gases, but it can only go so far in reinterpreting the statute,” Gerrard said. “The court invalidated a small corner of a secondary program. The main event – EPA’s proposed

Smoke rises from the Colstrip Steam Electric Station, a coal-burning power plant, in July 2013 in Colstrip, Montana. The Supreme Court on Monday placed limits on the only Obama administration program already in place to deal with power plant and factory emissions of gases blamed for global warming. rules on existing power plants – remains to be fought another day.” The EPA and many environmental advocates said the ruling would not affect the agency’s proposals for first-time national standards for new and existing power plants. The most recent proposal aims at a 30 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from existing power plants by 2030, but won’t take effect for at least another 2 years. The justices warned that the regulation of greenhouse gases is not automatic under every program of the Clean Air Act as the administration had assumed it was. Similar logic is driving the EPA’s other actions on globalwarming pollution.

Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for his conservative colleagues, said EPA could not “just rewrite the statute” to bring greenhouse gases under a provision dealing with expanded and new facilities that would increase the overall amount of air pollution. Under the program, companies must evaluate ways to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in order to get a permit to build. Carbon dioxide is the chief gas linked to global warming. But by a wider, 7-2 margin, the court preserved EPA’s authority over facilities that already emit pollutants that the agency regulates, other than greenhouse gases. “EPA is getting almost everything it wanted in this case,” Scalia said. He

said the agency wanted to regulate 86 percent of all greenhouse gases emitted from plants nationwide, and it will it be able to regulate 83 percent of the emissions under the ruling. Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas said they would go further and bar all regulation of greenhouse gases under the permitting program. The EPA called the decision “a win for our efforts to reduce carbon pollution because it allows EPA, states and other permitting authorities to continue to require carbon pollution limits in permits for the largest pollution sources.” The agency said that, as of late March, 166 permits have been issued by state and federal regula-

tors since 2011. Permits have been issued to power plants, but also to plants that produce chemicals, cement, iron and steel, fertilizer, ceramics and ethanol. Oil refineries and municipal landfills also have obtained greenhouse gas permits since 2011, the EPA said. Under Monday’s ruling, the EPA can continue to require permits for greenhouse gas emissions for those facilities that already have to obtain permits because they emit other pollutants that the government has long regulated. The program at issue is the first piece of the EPA’s attempt to reduce carbon output from large sources of pollution. The utility industry, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and 13 states led by Texas had asked the court to rule that the EPA overstepped its authority by trying to regulate greenhouse gas emissions through the permitting program. The administration failed to get climate change legislation through Congress. In 2012, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit concluded that the EPA was “unambiguously correct” in using existing federal law to address global warming. The agency’s authority came from the high court’s 2007 ruling in Massachusetts v. EPA, which said the Clean Air Act gives EPA power to limit emissions of greenhouse gases from vehicles.

ALABAMA

Southern states in U.S. woo Chinese investors PINE HILL, Ala. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Burdened with Alabamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest unemployment rate, long abandoned by textile mills and furniture plants, Wilcox County desperately needs jobs. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming, and from a most unlikely place: Henan Province, China, 7,600 miles away. Henanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Golden Dragon Precise Copper Tube Group opened a plant here last month. It will employ more than 300 in a county known less for job opportunities than for lakes filled with bass, pine forests rich with wild turkey and boar and muddy roads best negotiated in 4-wheel-drive trucks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jobs that pay $15 an hour are few and far between,â&#x20AC;? says Dottie Gaston, an official in nearby Thomasville. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening in Pine Hill is starting to happen across America. After decades of siphoning jobs from the United States, China is creating some. Chinese companies invested a record $14 billion in the United States last year, according to the Rhodium Group research firm. Collectively, they employ more than 70,000 Americans, up from virtually none a decade ago. Powerful forces â&#x20AC;&#x201C; narrowing wage gaps, tumbling U.S. energy prices, the vagaries of currency markets â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are pulling Chinese companies across the Pacific.

Summer break in name only

S

ummer break has arrived for the SVM sports staff. What does that mean? Sandy beaches and long evenings of watching the tide come in? We wish. Well, admittedly the calendar is pretty full of weeks where one person or another is on vacation, although I don’t think too many beaches will be involved. Even so, the show, or in our case, the section must go on. While the high school sports season is over, we still have some tidying up to do. The SVM Weekend edition will have our all-area softball teams. Next week, we will name our athletes of the year. That stuff is always fun. But that’s not all the prep stuff we will be doing over the next month. One thing I can’t help but notice is that there are a lot of guys running around in football helmets already. It’s crazy to think that Friday night lights are just around the corner. We’re going to take a look at how the area teams use their contact days this summer. The IHSA has been very busy over the last few months. With us short on people and heavy on local coverage, we didn’t get too much time to study the changes.

Area first teamers

One player has been an All-State first team mainstay the last few years. Another player set it as her goal at the beginning of the season. A third wasn’t expecting to get anything once the season ended. In all, the Sauk Valley had four players named to the Illinois Coaches Association AllState first teams. Those players are Sterling’s Karlie Mellott (3A), Morrison’s Allie Wiersema (2A), Amboy’s Karlee Doege (1A) and Milledgeville’s Taylor Grenoble (1A). Fourteen other players made the second and third teams. In Class 3A, Mellott was named to the first team for the third straight year. Mellott, who is committed to Cornell University, was named to the third team as a freshman. “It’s definitely rewarding to receive any sort of all-state recognition,” Mellott said. “You know that you have some great company on

It’s just amazing to make it.” The 3A team is filled with opponents the Golden Warriors faced this season. Sterling finished third at the state tournament.

2014 WORLD CUP | UNITED STATES

U.S. works on math problem Multiple ways to advance out of group play for United States BY RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer

SAO PAULO – Instead of taking a breather, the U.S. created a World Cup math puzzle for its fans back in America. Just 30 seconds from clinching advancement with a game to spare, the U.S. conceded a stoppage-time goal that left it with a 2-2 draw against Portugal on Sunday. With four points, the Americans may need at least a tie from their Group G finale against three-time champion Germany to advance to the knockout stage. “Now we have no choice but to regroup, get ourselves ready for

Germany leads the group with four points after routing Portugal 4-0 and tying Ghana 2-2. The U.S., which opened with a 2-1 victory over Ghana, also has four points and trails on goal difference. Ghana and Portugal have one

point each. The U.S. would advance to the knockout stage of consecutive World Cups for the first time with a win or a tie against the Germans, or a draw between Ghana and Portugal in a match played simultaneously. If there’s a winner in the other game, the Americans also could advance with four points on a tiebreaker: goal difference, followed by total goals, head-to-head points, head-to-head goal difference and head-to-head goals. If a tie still isn’t resolved, there would be a drawing of lots. MATH CONTINUED ON B3

Andy Murray plays a return to David Goffin during their first-round match Monday at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships in Wimbledon, London. Murray is the first England native to start a title defense of the tournament since 1936.

Offensive start to defense Murray dominates in return to Wimbledon; No upsets on first day BY HOWARD FENDRICH !04ENNIS7RITER

LONDON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It had been, famously, more than 75 years since a British man arrived at Wimbledon as the defending champion. So Andy Murray took a moment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and, really, only a moment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to take in the sights and sounds Monday at Centre Court as nearly 15,000 spectators, including Shaquille Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neal up in the Royal Box, rose to greet him with a raucous standing ovation. Murrayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents and grandparents were present. So, of course, was his muchdiscussed recent choice as coach, Amelie Mauresmo. The other player, 105th-ranked David Goffin of Belgium, was little more than a bystander for all of the proceedings, which wrapped up a little more than 2 hours after they began with a 6-1, 6-4, 7-5 victory for Murray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was pretty nervous and stuff before the match. Then when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re walking to the court â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I have a lot of memories obviously from last year. To come to the court and get that reception, it was very nice,â&#x20AC;? said Murray, who last year became the first man from Britain since Fred Perry in 1936 to win the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prestigious tennis tournament.

Did you know? sMaria SharapovaWONHER FIRST7IMBLEDONTITLEATTHEAGE OFIN3HESSTILLTRYING TOWINHERSECONDTITLE That title for Perry was his third in a row at the All England Club, but he did not try for another one in 1937. Murray heeded advice from Mauresmo, the 2006 womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s champion at Wimbledon, who told him to soak in everything while walking out to play because, as he put it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You never know if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get the chance to do it again.â&#x20AC;? He responded to the crowdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reaction with a quick wave and a glance around the arena. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enjoyed it for the walk to the chair,â&#x20AC;? Murray said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then when I sat down, it was time to get on with business.â&#x20AC;? Certainly took care of that. He was crisp and clean, finishing with only 10 unforced errors and saving the only two break points he faced. He pounded serves at up to 131 mph and returned Goffinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not-quite-as-fast offerings with ease. All the while, the fans roared for his winners and groaned as a group when their man lost

points, no matter how or what significance. They gasped when Murrayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leg buckled a bit, and he slipped to the fresh turf in the third game. He rose to his feet quickly and won that point, part of racing to a 3-0 lead. No matter the attention and expectations heaped on him by a nation, Murray handles it quite well, particularly whenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the court. Even when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s away from the action, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been at ease, pausing less than 2 hours before Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s match to oblige a fanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request to pose for a selfie. The man he beat in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final, No. 1-seeded Novak Djokovic, won in similarly easy fashion on Day 1, taking the first 11 games and never facing a break point en route to beating 56th-ranked Andrey Golubev of Kazakhstan 6-0, 6-1, 6-4. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A great start,â&#x20AC;? said Djokovic, the 2011 champion. All in all, it was a relatively quiet start to a tournament that a year ago was as tumultuous as ever, including exits by the end of the second round for past champions Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova. That trio, along with five-time champion and No. 1-seeded Serena Williams, play their opening matches today.

Mexico surged into the World Cupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knockout stage for a sixth straight time with an emphatic 3-1 win over Croatia. Rafael Marquez, Andres Guardado and Javier â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chicharitoâ&#x20AC;? Hernandez scored in a 10-minute span in the second half, dooming a talented Croatia side to elimination from the group stage. The Croatians had to win to advance and held the bulk of possession, but had trouble seriously threatening goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, who kept out all efforts in the group stage until an 87th-minute consolation goal from Ivan Perisic.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Had we been down 2-1 and we came back, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be flying high right now,â&#x20AC;? goalkeeper Tim Howard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Group of Death. Most people counted us out. So, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no problem. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to the last game with a chance.â&#x20AC;? The U.S. arrived back at its base hotel in Sao Paulo at about 5 a.m. on Monday, after a 4-hour flight from the match in the steamy Amazon rainforest capital of Manaus. The starters were given the day off, and the reserves trained in the late afternoon at Sao Paulo Futebol Clube. After todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training session, the team makes the 3-hour-plus flight to the northeast beach city of Recife. While the Americans have just 3 days off between matches, Germany has four.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of things you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a quirk of the schedule,â&#x20AC;? U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a quirk of the schedule that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got more travel than anybody else in the first round, but we had less than everyone else in the first round in South Africa. So those things balance out.â&#x20AC;? The Group G winner likely will play Algeria, Russia or South Korea, whichever finishes second in Group H. The second-place team in Group G probably will face Group H leader Belgium, which is 2-0. U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann did not talk to reporters Monday, but spoke with the USSF in an interview for its website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to beat Germany. We want to be first in our group, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not thinking about a tie,â&#x20AC;? he said.

aybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just me, but it already feels like the Bulls are getting used by Carmelo Anthony. There he was Sunday, Instagrammed in Air Jordan wear while seeing Paris with the Pippens, which pretty much covers the heart of the Bullsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; six titles. The Bulls are looking for a seventh, and they believe Anthony will come to Chicago to help them find it after he told the Knicks heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll opt out of his contract to pursue free agency. The Bulls are said to be the team Anthony wants to play for. That might be something only the Bulls are saying because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good business. Or something only Anthonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agents are saying because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good business. Anthony shares an agent with Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something the Bulls want out there, too, but Anthonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agent ought to be smart enough to know that the Bulls coach kills his players. Just kills them. And what would that mean for a 30-year-old? Thibodeau said his team had nothing left when it went out in the first round this year. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what he does every year. The Spurs coach doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. One wins titles, one doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Of course, a first-round playoff loss is more than Anthony experienced this season. The Knicks went 37-45, and the free agency watch began with the expectation that Anthony valued winning over max money, but then Anthonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exit interview included this: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The grass isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always greener.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Anthony can opt out and still opt back in with the Knicks. Anthony can opt out and stay out, signing with the team he believes has the best chance to win a title. In that case, he would sign for less money. In the Bullsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; case, he would sign for less than half of the $129 million the Knicks could give him. See how the Bulls could easily be used here? Anthony previously said

player on the planet. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell me thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not attractive to everyone, including Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; marketers. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell me about a salary cap when James already has taken less money in the same situation. Oh, and new Knicks coach Derek Fisher is said to be tight with Kevin Durant, who could become a free agent in 2 years, just in case you wanted to know how bad this could get for a certain local basketball team that previously has been spurned and likely will again. The Bulls already have thrown themselves at Anthony the way youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect a lovelorn team to do. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame them for trying. I just pity their high hopes. You know how this movie ends, the same way you know how Bulls seasons end. The Bulls are trying to change the script of the seasons, but they have yet to show they can change the script to the offseason, so forget it. Inevitable sadness and frustration to follow. The Bull canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything official with Anthony until next Monday, but they seem to be doing everything else, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thinking, this might be the earliest a free agent ever has used the Bulls.

COLLEGE WORLD SERIES | VANDERBILT 9, VIRGINIA 8

Total control lost in third inning Virginiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kirby issues five walks, as Commodores score nine in one frame BY ERIC OLSON Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Vanderbilt capitalized on Virginia starter Nathan Kirbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sudden loss of control to score nine runs in the third inning, then held off the Cavaliers to win 9-8 in Game 1 of the College World Series finals Monday. The Commodores (5020) can win their first national championship in a menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sport with a win tonight. Tyler Campbell continued his improbable breakout for the Commodores, doubling twice in the third inning. His second double came off reliever Whit Mayberry with the bases loaded to put Vanderbilt up 9-2. But Virginia (52-15) chipped away, scoring three runs in the third, two in the fifth and another in the eighth to make it a one-run game. Adam Ravenelle came on in the ninth to get the last three outs for his second save of the CWS.

It was the highestscoring CWS game at TD Ameritrade Park. The nine runs in the third, off three hits, five walks and a hit batsman, were the most in an inning in the CWS since Stanford scored 11 against Florida State in the ninth on June 14, 2008, at the old Rosenblatt Stadium. Kirby (9-3) took the loss after his shortest outing of the season. Things went south for Kirby in a hurry after he struck out Chris Harvey to start the third. He walked Jason Delay on four pitches, gave up Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first double, and walked Dansby Swanson to load the bases. Bryan Reynoldsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; infield single drove in a run, and then Kirby issued the first of three straight basesloaded walks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all while Whit Mayberry was warming up in the bullpen. Of Kirbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last 50 pitches, 31 were balls. He walked five in the third inning, after having never walked more than three in a game.

Davis blast sinks Sox

Reds use big ninth inning to crush Cubs By the Associated Press

Chris Davis interrupted his frustrating season with a pinch-hit, threerun homer in the ninth inning to give the Baltimore Orioles a 6-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Monday night. Davis was excluded from the starting lineup after batting just .130 in his previous 14 starts. Called upon by manager Buck Showalter with runners on first and second and one out in the ninth, Davis launched a 3-2 pitch from Ronald Belisario (3-4) into the seats in right field. Davis, who led the majors in home runs and RBIs last year, started the game in the dugout with a .216 batting average and 78 strikeouts in 218 at-bats. Jose Abreu hit his 22nd homer and drove in three runs for Chicago, which
