Fundraisers essence of our society; many causes worthy More than 1,700 attended the Aurora Kiwanis Pancake Day Saturday, March 17. The well-run event is a major fundraiser for the Kiwanis Club, which helps with youth programs and youth advancement. The lines were present from the beginning until near the end at Aurora Central Catholic High School. Some of the same Kiwanis Club members helped with the day. There were a few new volunteers. The next pancake breakfast will be the Noon Lions Club Saturday, April 7 at Luigi’s Pizza and Fun Center, 732 Prairie Street in Aurora. The following Saturday, April 14, in the evening, will be the Mutual Ground of Aurora’s Blossom of Hope 2012, a gala event to benefit the facility on Oak and West Park in Aurora, which nearly closed a year ago because of a lack of funding. The event is at the Piper’s Banquets, 1295 Butterfield in Aurora. Tickets are $125. per person, but goes toward helping to reduce and heal the wounds of domestic violence. One note, however, is that the requested deadline for replying is March 30. Fundraisers are continual and patrons must choose their favorites, or, give to everything. But, the need is great and in the slow economic recovery we find ourselves it is more critical than it has been for a long time. Not every person who could be a supporter does provide backing for fundraisers. There is an element which simply refuses to be a positive force for good. Nonetheless, in a time of great need there support has been good for most good causes and funds find a proper home. It speaks well for society to be supportive of

We all have a need to be heard in some way and at some time in our lives. We need to have a voice. Whether it is a conversation between two, a situation in a group, within a family situation, at work, in politics, or representing a business, having a voice is essential. There are avenues to find our voices. We can speak or write, or share in the voices found by others. This newspaper can help give a voice to those who want to reach other individuals. Organizations need a voice to send out their messages. Whether that organization represents a collection of individuals, or, is a charitable effort to benefit individuals, The Voice each week can provide access to being heard. The open invitation is extended to participation by reading the information within these pages, or by submitting material for others to understand. The material could be in the form of a letter, a news release, or, a business advertisement. Deadline: Noon, Monday each week.

good causes. There may come a time when we, or, friends, or relatives, would require use of the services. Being supportive offers a sense of community. We all belong to community. Another good cause is promoted and supported by Pat Gavros from Oswego. She has gained a good reputation for doing patriotic acts. In fact, her goal

is to develop patriot causes and work toward their success for one solid year. She was the motivating force behind the Fallen Heroes July 4, 2011, and the Empty Shoe Memorial September 11, 2011. Both were in Oswego in the downtown along Route 34. Now comes The Warrior Dog Project, which will be April 1, 4, 13, and 14 in Oswego. The Warrior Dog Project supports the dogs who support our troops in critical combat situations. Save-A-Vet founder Danny Scheurer had the first so-called non-adoptable dog whose life was spared to help with the military. The organization needs funds to do its work. The first event will be from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sunday at Hudson Park. Be a force for good.

Education answer to pet abandonment March 21, 2012 Dear editor; I am really disappointed in the city of Aurora for not having a better program in place to help get the strays off the streets (euthanization is not the answer) and for not educating its residents about the resources available to them instead of abandoning their pets or continuing to let strays reproduce. There are programs that the city can offer to reduce the overpopula-

tion/abandonment issue of the strays such as: • Stray/feral cat spay/neuter programsTrap-Neuter-Return • Aurora needs to be

cost clinics to Aurora residents as well; • Aurora should have a TNR specialist to assist with trapping; • Residents who

will just continue to increase. Residents need to understand how crucial it is to spay/neuter their own pets at a young age, before they are capable of reproducing. I think the more that residents are educated about what's going on in their neighborhoods, the more they will try to make a difference. Thank you for your time. Teresa Mackey Aurora

Teachers’ help limited, needs help March 20, 2012 Dear editor; In a conversation this morning on Facebook with my niece, who is an elementary level school teacher, she wrote the following, which I felt, needed to be shared. So, with her permission, please read, and ponder the following. “Watching the news and getting awfully weary of politicians talking about how horrible our schools are and how teachers and schools need to improve.... I agree, schools and teachers

need to continually improve, but I am tired of schools being the only ones held accountable for our nation's children. We only have students 6.5 hours daily... we cannot fix everything in these kiddos lives and make them ready to learn/perform well on a high stakes test without help from families/community. “We cannot make sure students have a healthy evening meal and are in bed on time. We cannot make sure students get enough sleep and come to school

on time in the morning ready to learn. We cannot make sure students get their homework finished daily. We cannot make sure there is not arguing/fighting in homes or on the way to school in the morning. “There are so many things that are out of the schools' control with regard to student learning. We take students as they are when they walk through those doors daily. I see my colleagues working before school, during lunches, following the school day late into the

Food help includes genetically modified organisms (GMO) First of two parts Received the following E-mail as an update from Frederick Ravid, after signing: “Tell Obama to Cease FDA Ties to Monsanto Campaign.” Ravid writes: “This update includes several exciting announcements, so please read to the end. “We have much ahead of us and we’re doing everything we can to effectively move our work in the direction our signers deserve and can be proud of. Our petition, “Tell Obama to Cease FDA Ties to Monsanto’ got over 430,000 signatures in the past month. This brought press, scrutiny, and corresponding responsibility. I observed that we have the ability and the public support to do much more than merely create a petition. Doing more is not just repeating the success story of the petition, it involves pushing well beyond the first press stories and reactions. It involves growing the base, stimulating, and providing people with effective tools. “People need to be more engaged in learning about what is in our food, about genetically modi-

fied organisms (GMO), about where food comes from, about how it is produced, and about the effects and consequences. We need to learn how regulators consistently serve the agenda of centralized agribusiness and entrenched companies like Monsanto. The more educated people become the more likely we will be to drive national policy towards a safer, healthier, happier, and better outcome. We want everybody to realize that we really have no choice but to succeed. It’s really a matter of life and death. We must turn the tipping point away from food-centralization and plutocratic corruption of food regulation back towards healthy, safe, and sane food practices in our country. We strongly advocate the California Ballot Initiative for GMO Labeling as a key actionable element and ask everyone to do what they can to assure its success. But, there is much more we’re doing. “By our sheer size, we quickly became the seed of one of the largest food policy advocacy organizations. We know we must build a solid organizational structure along with an effective Internet

Spring Has Sprung The trees are leafing out their greenery; The budding shrubs adorn the scenery, The sounds of birds now has a constant ring, The lawn needs mowing, so it must be Spring. But wait a minute—when did Winter end? It seems to me it still has strengths to wend.

Now haven’t we all heard that adage played That cautions counting chicks before they’re laid? What? You’ve put your Winter coats away, And started cleaning the old-fashioned way. Okay, I’ll go along with that, although Let’s hope we do not have an Easter snow.

Holiday Magic with Miss Merry Christmas, Jack Frost By Carter Crane The Christmas holiday season traditionally follows Thanksgiving Day closely. In communities around the Midwest, turning on the lights in the chilly air is a ceremony taken seriously, even with a wink. More than 1,000 observers and participants squeezed into plaza area outside of North Island Center in Aurora, across from the Paramount Theatre, last Friday, to partici-

pate in Holiday Magic, the city government’s welcome to Santa and the holidays. (See page 3 for expanded holiday happenings in many communities.) Singing carols, viewing live reindeer, consuming cookies and hot cocoa, and lighting the 38-foot Christmas tree at the plaza outside of the North Island Center were part of the annual event. Santa arrived on the Aurora fire truck from the Fire Department Museum and with him were Miss

presence in order to serve you. We created a webdesign architecture specification to help volunteer web designers do their part. Our approach to planning is patient and for the long term. Meanwhile, we have built important alliances with other organizations who share our purpose and we are grateful for them. What lies before us is clear: We must inspire and channel the massive demand we as a country need to muster. We must transition the food issue from a passing public interest towards lasting policy change. We have to do this amid many comparably-transient election-year issues, events, and a host of other distractions. “We face extremely well-organized and wellfunded opposition and detractors. Their comments about us make it clear that we are being taken seriously, as we should be. As for the White House, the FDA and Monsanto, based on a variety of indicators, we are confident they are well aware of our position, but we have no reason to expect a warm reception from any of them. Consequently, we are not in a big hurry to deliver the petition only to get a form letter in response. We are in a hurry to inform, share, and spread our clear and optimistic vision for the kind of country we want to become in terms of food/regulatory policy. And make no mistake about it: That is a very different country than what we are heading towards becoming if we don’t take action now. Continued next week

My Perfect World: Loved, fed children; pleasant clerks When everything seems to be at sixes and sevens, when the news of the day is tragic and when the mail contains only bills, when the car needs work and the patio door needs replacing and it is just seems to me at that moment that the world is a most inhospitable place, I retreat to My Perfect World and it makes all things better. I imagine a blue-marbled planet steeped in its dream as a peaceful place, san souci, without care. What is My Perfect World like? Come along with me. Admission is free. In My Perfect World no child is lost, abandoned, abused, neglected, sick, uncared for, unloved, hungry or orphaned. All children are born with a loving mom and dad who will nurture them into adulthood. There are aunts and uncles and cousins and neighbors and teachers who shower the children with love. No child goes to bed hungry or does without a Winter coat or new shoes for the first day of school. Children in this Perfect World smile, giggle, walk, run, jump, play, climb, swim, and explore nature and, as a result, are never obese. In a recent United Nations international survey, American children rated second as unhappiest after those in the United Kingdom. We must discover why that is and take due diligence to correct it. In My Perfect World every husband is considerate, faithful, dependable and loving. He takes showers and shaves daily. He smells of Old Spice cologne. He has a job. He contributes to the family’s well-being. He looks and comports himself like a man. He is attentive to his wife and children, sometimes even putting their needs before his own. He is well-respected and loved because his intelligence and good humour are exceptional. In My Perfect World mankind never has heard of tobacco products. There are no cancer sticks to be bought or sold. No one has a drug addiction to nicotine. There is no profit to be made on illness and death. There is no stench of stale cigarette smoke lingering on a sidewalk or near a mall entrance. There is no tobacco product thrown to litter the sidewalks and streets. This world is clean and

sweet-smelling. In My Perfect World alcohol is enjoyed in moderation and no one becomes addicted to it. No one loses everything due to drink. No one is fired, loses home and family, everything, because of alcohol addiction. There are no DUI arrests because no one ever is drunk. Imagine it! In My Perfect World every clerk I deal with is pleasant and capable. They are helpful. At Dominick’s on Eola Road in Aurora every single employee is that way already. If I ask for help, they do not give me an annoyed look, but instead proceed to take me directly to the product I had asked about. Contrary to that, I would like Walmart to train ts

employees to do the same. When I have asked for help at Walmart, I get a pained expression and a look of annoyance and they point me off in a nebulous direction as if they can’t be bothered to help a customer, who actually pays their salary. However, the cashiers are amazingly positive and welcoming. How can Dominick’s already know the obvious? Without customers, we are out of business, so let’s treat them well. The same is true for the pharmacy at CVS on Eola Road. What an inspiration! Everyone is pleasant, helpful, direct and knowledgeable. When I ask the pharmacist John a question, he answers me, and then he shows me a helpful product. They are the best staff of a pharmacy I ever have known. Remember Marshall Field’s dictum “Give the lady what she wants?” Field’s was known for impeccable customer service and free delivery wagons. Full service ruled the store. A respectable reputation was the key to strong sales, the company believed. I passed my driver’s test. I know the road rules. In My Perfect World citizens are trusted to obey the rules of the road and be respectful of others. I do not need an ugly yellow sign in the middle of the street to know that pedestrians have the right of way. It no longer is a pleasure to drive a car. If all this sounds like Pollyanna to you, what if it didn’t? What if our world was actually this way? What if neighbor helped neighbor instead of the opposite? What if the car mechanic told you the truth about the needed repairs instead of inflating the bill to make more money? What if you could actually trust him to do the best job for you not for him? What if all board members actually acted like adults and could disagree without it becoming personal? What if all our elected public officials were public servants instead of politicians? What if human beings realized they only had one chance to go around and they needed to make the best of it? A poem “The Summer Day” by Mary Oliver asks, “Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon? Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

Focus: NLRB ethical violations, health care hearings By John Bogucki, president, and Jim Myer, bargaining chairman United Auto Workers Local 2096 Region 4 (A team report) Here is a statement Statement by AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka on ethical violations by National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) member Terence Flynn. “The report of the inspector general of the NLRB into allegations of improper conduct by Flynn confirms a pattern of ethical violations that is nothing less than shocking. The report details numerous instances of then-chief counsel Flynn funneling confidential information about the labor board’s activities and deliberations, including attorney-client privileged information, to two former NLRB members who have been actively engaged in a relentless campaign to undermine and discredit the NLRB through legal and rhetorical challenges to the agency’s activities. “One of the former NLRB members who received confidential information, former chairman Peter Schaumber, is co-chair of the labor policy advisory group for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. The report makes clear that Schaumber used his inside connections through his former chief counsel Flynn to get internal, confidential information that he then utilized in ongoing public attacks on the actions of the NLRB. “These unethical practices are unprecedented and indefensible. NLRB member Flynn should resign immediately. The Department of Justice should quickly investigate and bring criminal charges if violations are found. “Working people deserve to know that public officials who take an oath to honor the public trust will do so, and that is especially true for officials charged with protecting workers’ rights. “These findings will be a test for candidate Romney. A key advisor has been found to have used his inside connections in a way that resulted in the violation of ethics rules. Allowing

Schaumber to remain as an advisor will speak volumes about candidate Romney and the value he places on ethics in government officials. He should renounce these violations and dismiss Schaumber.” Health care reform The U.S. Supreme Court started three days of hearings on constitutional challenges to the Affordable Care Act Monday this week AFSCME members and supporters from other unions, faith groups, and progressive allies organized picket lines of support to defend president Barack Obama’s landmark health reform law. Two years ago, president Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, putting access to quality health care within reach of nearly every American. Please contact your senators and your representatives to let them know they should stand up and support president Obama’s Health Care Reform Law.

Body of War documentary focus on a young Iraq casualty Phil Donahue was a recent guest on C-SPAN television’s Washington Journal and led a discussion on Body of War, a 2007 documentary directed by Ellen Spiro and Phil Donahue. The documentary followed Tomas Young, 25 years-old, an Iraq War veteran paralyzed from a bullet to the spine. He was wounded after serving in Iraq for less than a week. It is a physical and emotional journey of Young’s adapting to his new body and begins to question the decisions that were made to go to war in Iraq. It is an intimate and transformational feature documentary about the true face of war today. Body of War is a nakedly honest portrayal of what it's like inside the body, heart and soul of this extraordinary and heroic young man. Donahue said that this documentary was not acceptable to many providers of news at the time it was filmed, but perhaps it is something we should revisit when we hear rumors of a possible war in Iran. In Tomas' journey, the film cuts back and forth to congressional proceedings in Washington, D.C.. Footage includes passionate speeches by (now deceased) senator Robert Byrd as well as a running tally of how each U.S. Senate member voted on the resolution to authorize president George W. Bush to war in Iraq. Donahue said: “The first time I saw him will be with me forever, paralyzed from the waist down, he had that morphine look, droopy eyed, sallow, sunken, lifeless. Body of War is a film provoked by my own questions as I stood on my well functional legs at his bedside: “Who is this young man? Why him, not me? “I had accompanied my friend Ralph Nader who had been invited by the patient's mother. She is caring for her son who was seriously wounded in Iraq. A week later the two of us entered America's most famous military hospital (Walter Reed). “The closer you get to Tomas Young, the more reality sets in. T-4 is the spot on the spine that is severed. Anatomists know what this means: Not only can't Tomas walk, he can't cough, his bodily functions are paralyzed, his bladder must be manually drained several times daily. “And no small issue for a male, just married. Twenty-six-year-old Tomas Young can't, in the language of the locker room, get it up. This film, Body of War, is our effort to spread

news that is not good, news that is hidden behind the doors of homes all over this country. Dwellings occupied by the mere five percent of our population actually sacrificing for this war. “This film's story mirrors the stories of thousands of young soldiers who, like Tomas Young, have sustained life-altering injuries in a war mission that was unnecessary as Tomas tells Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes. This foreign policy decision was not only unnecessary, it was ill-considered and misguided from the start, a mission that has never been, and in Tomas' opinion, never will be accomplished. “Our film revisits one of the most tragic errors of judgment ever made by a United States Congress. After engaging in a superficial dialogue, robotic Senators and House members are seen voting to approve the Iraq War Resolution in October 2002. Members take the floor, one by one, reading talking points of the White House Iraq Group (WHIG) the assembly of advertising agency warriors whose job was to sell the war. It was WHIG who gave the nation a litany of untruths: “Saddam has ‘unmanned aerial vehicles’ to de-

On a corporation and a human being By Jim Hickey In January 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court had a landmark ruling stating that corporations should be protected under the First Amendment’s right of free speech. This means that a corporation is considered a “living and breathing person.” Anyone can create a corporation, fund the corporate bank accounts and then have the rights of free speech in which to hide behind the corporate curtain. Let us first define, what is a corporation? According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, a corporation is “a body formed and authorized by law to

liver toxins ‘over wide territories’ and scary doomsday scenarios, ‘The smoking gun could be a mushroom cloud.’ “As the War Resolution is debated, our cameras watch as Tomas deals with the very personal consequences of this historic and unprecedented vote for pre-emptive war. It was this vote that put him in a wheel chair. Our film watches him coping with his body, his drugs, his anger, his marriage and his future. Who is Tomas Young? He's a young man who enlisted knowing he might be killed. He thought he might come home dead…. He never dreamed of coming home like this. “His is a true story of war; here is the un-sanitized harm in harm's way. It is a story of a heartland kid who suddenly went from a social life of single bars and courtship to a daily routine of catheters, puke pans, and erectile dysfunction. “I discovered a great American in Tomas Young, a warrior turned anti-warrior, a voice of courage rising above the war drums, a voice to be heard behind the White House gate in the words of the song Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder wrote for this film. “To all the main-streamers in the press who supported the invasion of Iraq, to the pundits who continue to talk tough while other people's kids die, to all the merry warriors who recruited Jesus to assist them in this massive foreign policy blunder…. I have a soldier for you,” Donahue said. If you go online you can watch the free documentary: Body of War www.topdocumentaryfilms. com/body-war.

strips securing with 1 or 2 toothpicks per strip of bacon. Slice the tenderloin between each bacon strip to create the medallions. Dip both sides of the medallions in seasoning mix.

act as a single person although constituted by one or more persons and legally endowed with various rights and duties including the capacity of succession.” This term was first used more than 600 years ago, and I am not sure whether our founding fathers thought that a corporation should be treated equally as a person in all aspects. So a corporation is a group of people that either creates products or services for the best interests of the shareholders. Are the corporate products such as machines protected under First Amendment right of free speech? What is next giving corporations the right to vote? I believe corporations are seen as a legal entity for the purposes of taxation and responsibility to the citizens, but not as an equivalent of a human being. Here are a couple examples: A corporation has 100 employees and each employee has one percent vote. Fifty-one of the shareholders want to use their funds to support an issue, and the other 49 shareholders want to oppose the same issue. By a normal vote, the support would carry, but were the 49 shareholders protected under the First Amendment to their rights of free speech? Same company, 100 shareholders, except one shareholder owns 51% of the stock and the other 99 shareholders own 49% of the stock. The one shareholder that owns 51% wants to support an issue, and the other 99 shareholders want to oppose the same issue. Who is being able to demonstrate a right of free speech? Here is my common sense solution to this issue. If a corporation wants to use its funds in order to promote an issue or a candidate, then the corporation should vote on paying a dividend to each shareholder and let each shareholder decide how to use those funds. If the shareholders indeed want to use their funds for political free speech, so be it. What do you think?

More than 250 students from 20 Illinois colleg-

Aurora Finance Committee postpones library decision By Larry Frieders The Aurora City Finance Committee, alderpersons Robert O’Connor, Lynda Elmore, and Abby Schuler, listened attentively for almost an hour when Aurora Public Library Board building and grounds chairman John Savage presented the plans for a new Aurora Public Library. It consisted of printed copies, a powerpoint presentation, and iPad versions for each of the aldermen on the committee. Mr. Savage presented a global concept of future library services for Aurora that went far beyond a description of yet another, larger book depository. He stressed that the plans focus upon technology, flexibility, and collaboration with schools and businesses. That’s code for “we have plenty of ideas, hopes, and dreams.” Mr. Savage stated that the Aurora Public Library will be “a cultural center instead book storage. We’re not erecting just a building, but a complex system of additional satellite facilities, more locations in schools, and even book kiosks similar to the Red Box machines that offer DVDs. Technology, whatever that means specifi-

Asa's Dad Review Asa's Dad Online Comics channels the comedy of everyday life into enjoyably short witticisms. Each comic strip is perfectly relatable, yet captures an essence of reality with precision and humor. The comics depict everything from an older sister coercing her younger brother to be her slave in order to get on to Santa's good list to tackling issues of animal cruelty, but, what if the animals started it? Asa's Dad surely aims to provide humor in a creative and engaging way, because anyone can relate to it. Based on a true, diverse American family, Asa's Dad Online Comics shares so much more than just comedy, although the comics are actually hilarious! The comics serve as a cultural perspective on laughter. Parents will laugh because the comics expose the ridiculousness of their children, as portrayed by the comic. Kids will laugh because they can relate to evolving into zombies glued to the television or getting ready to have an epic snowball fight, only to find the

cally, will be such that Aurora will be able to boast of having, the most cutting edge library in the nation.” This is someone’s dream, a beautiful compilation of wants that the Library Board has decided that the citizens of Aurora need. All the library board needs to start work on fulfilling our collective need (dream) is $30 Million. That money will get things rolling and allow for the new library to open in 2014. Expenses after completion have not yet been accounted for. To sweeten the concept of additional taxes, the project will direct jobs to local vendors and local contractors, thereby redistributing some of those dollars to the lucky few who find work on the project. This proposal for financing has been before the Finance Committee for many months and there has yet to be a decision. Even after Tuesday’s arduous presentation, the committee chairman, Mr. O'Connor, decided to put a decision off for yet another week where it hopefully will be decided on Tuesday, April 3 at 4 p.m., just prior to the meeting of the Committee of the Whole. Perhaps the Finance Committee

opponent has created a massive snowfort! The comic strips are so enjoyable because they tap into reality the way that no other work of art can. These comic strips are works of genius that everyone can laugh at and appreciate. In a day in age where realaction art forms dominate the entertainment industry, one cannot forget the awesomeness of the comic strip, and all the humor and morality it brings into the world. T Gaiter When he was only four years old, Gaiter’s mother taught him how to read the funny pages of their local newspaper. It was then that Gaiter’s love for the comics began. Growing up in the projects, Gaiter found that his only way to be positive in life was through laughter. In high school, Gaiter created his first comic strip “Get Off,” capturing the experiences of kids who lived in the projects. His classmates loved the strip; however, his teachers thought it was too controversial for

has yet to draw a conclusion, but how long should we have to wait. After hearing a presentation by the library folks last month the decision was put off until this week. Now it’s delayed to next week. How difficult can it be to come down on one side or the other? They’ve been elected to decide, not tap dance around an issue. Chairman O’Connor was effusive with praise for Mr. Savage’s presentation and still decided to not decide this week. It isn’t difficult to establish how I would vote on this issue, but it isn’t up to me. Actually, it is up to only three individuals. Three. If two of them decide in favor of the plans and the tax increase, it is passed to the Committee of the Whole and then to the full City Council. The proposition fails for now if the committee votes against it. As a voter I’m disappointed that our elected officials don’t seem to able to make the decision. The yes vote approves the project and raises taxes. The no vote disappoints those who believe Aurora needs to have the most cutting edge library in the nation. What’s it going to be?

school publication. But despite their opinions, Gaiter continued to pursue his passion for writing comics. After grammar school, Gaiter attempted to publish his school newspaper. Yet again, he was turned away with an empathic, no. As the years passed, Gaiter became side-tracked with other issues of life and writing soon became a distant memory. Then, one day while working on a project with some friends, his nostalgia of writing comics surfaced. With inspiration from his son and the help of his friend, Erik Perez (E.P.), Gaiter created the online comic strip, Asa’s Dad, a set of funny parodies about an African-American boy growing up in the projects. Erik Perez When growing up all that Erik knew was that he wanted to be a Disney cartoonist, Erik would practice drawing and soon became a versatile artist. However, Erik’s work experienced criticism when, in a fourth grade class project, Erik was asked to create a comic strip. In

his cartoon, Erik illustrated a boy walking down the street with baggy pants. When the boy’s belt buckle broke, his pants fell to his ankles, revealing the heart-pattered boxers he was wearing and the expression of utter embarrassment in the youngster’s face. Erik’s teacher regarded the cartoon with disdain, and insisted on a parent-teacher conference to resolve the issue. The outcome, Erik was not allowed to present his cartoon in class. During high school, Erik was introduced to New Expressions Teen Publication, a newspaper written by and for Chicago teens. Erik started off as an illustrator and won a few awards for best illustration. He went on to become an assistant art design editor. After high school, Erik earned his AA of Arts in Graphic Design and continued to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Game Art. This training afforded him the opportunity to become a concept artist. In college, Erik presented some art work during the 2010 C2E2. His work caught the attention of Gaiter, and they began to work collaboratively on their projects.

Ensign Lauzen, Chicago FBI agent, Aurora Navy League guest speakers The Aurora Council of the Aurora Navy League had a most interesting dinner meeting Tuesday, March 20 at Grandma’s Table in Montgomery. The first speaker, Ensign Hans Lauzen, USN was on leave from the USS Kidd (DDG-100) home ported in San Diego, Calif.. He had just returned from the coast of Somalia where the Kidd captured a group of pirates that had taken over an Iranian fishing boat. Ensign Lauzen showed a large number of slides which included that at-sea rescue, plus many others that presented life aboard a Navy ship at sea. The second speaker was special agent Pablo Araya of the FBI's Chicago office. Mr. Araya spoke of tracking violent criminals and bringing them to justice. FBI rules prevented a photo from being taken of Mr. Araya. His talk, and the subsequent Q&A, kept the attendees spellbound, particularly when he went through eight actual case studies that resulted in

apprehension and conviction of these wanted violent criminals. Lauzen was presented a two-star Purple Star flag, a tradition started in World War II for parents who had two children in military service. Ensign Lauzen, son of state senator Chris and Sarah Lauzen, of Aurora, was thanked by Colonel Rick Todas, Navy League president. The next Aurora Navy League dinner will be Tuesday, April 17.

Women’s empowerment the theme for Women’s History Month After the American Revolution, the notion of education as a safeguard for democracy created opportunities for girls to gain a basic education. How-

ever, that education was based largely on the premise that, as mothers, they would nurture the minds and bodies of the (male) citizens and lead-

ers. This idea that educating women meant educating mothers endured in America for many years at all levels of education. The equal opportunity to learn, which today is taken for granted, owes much to Title IX of the Education Codes of the Higher Education Act Amendments. Passed in 1972 and enacted in 1977, this legislation prohibited gender discrimination by federally-funded institutions. Its enactment has served as the primary tool for women's fuller participation in all aspects of education from scholarships, to facilities, to classes formerly closed to women. It has transformed the educational landscape of the United States within the span of a generation. Each year National Women's History Month employs a unifying theme and recognizes national honorees whose work and lives testify to that theme. This year six women are honored who helped illustrate how ethnicity, region, culture, and race relate to women's education and women's empowerment. The 2012 honorees are: • Emma Hart Willard, women’s

higher education pioneer; • Charlotte Forten Grimke, Freedman Bureau educator; • Annie Sullivan, disability education architect; • Gracia Molina Enriquez de Pick, feminist educational reformer; • Okolo Rashid, community development activist and historical preservation advocate; • Brenda Flyswithhawks, American Indian advocate and educator. The stories of women's achievements are integral to the fabric of our history. Learning about women's tenacity, courage, and creativity throughout the centuries is a tremendous source of strength. Knowing women's stories provides essential role models for everyone. Role models are genuinely needed to face the extraordinary changes and unrelenting challenges of the 21st Century. National Women's History Month, designated by Joint Resolutions of the U.S. House and Senate and proclamations by six American presidents, is an opportunity to learn about and honor women's achievements today and throughout history. —NWHP.org submitted by Cathie Patterson, UAW Local 145

Ask Grandpa:

Conspiracy can be positive for husband Grandpa, My husband and his brother are very competitive. Even on holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries they compete on the gifts they give us. My sister-in-law likes it, but I don’t want him spending all of that money on gifts or fancy dinners. I want to save up for our own house. Grandpa says; If hubby is that competitive, would he be up to a bit of conspiracy? Talk to him and tell him you have a plan to really one up his brother. Let him know that it is okay to let his brother “win” for a couple of years while you two secretly sock away money for a down payment. Then when he buys you a house for your birthday, or whatever, he will have the bragging rights for years. It is okay for a husband and wife to have the same goals, even if the motives are different. Grandpa, There is a guy in school that I really like. He doesn’t play any sports or belong to any clubs or any thing. He really isn’t much of anything. But I think he is cute. My friends laugh at him. Should I tell him I like him? What should I tell my friends? Grandpa says; Let this guy know you like him. Just be yourself and be a friend to him. If you tell your friends before you tell him, it will get to him before you do and could cause some embarrassment. That’s not the way to start off a friendship, no matter what you see in the movies. You don’t need to make it some grand proclamation. Just go up to him and tell him what you feel. Then when your friends see you hanging around with him, they’ll know.

Grandpa, My parents are fighting over who gets custody of me and my brothers. All the time they were married they didn’t pay a lot of attention to us. Now they are fighting to get us. I am the oldest. I am 12 so they said I can pick who I live with. I just don’t want me and my brothers split up. We are all scared. Please help us. Grandpa says; I feel very badly for you. I wish I could tell you that everything will be okay. Sadly, divorce is a terrible thing for you to have to go through. Grandpa is not a lawyer so I can’t give legal advice. But because you put your name and phone number in your letter, I was able to get in touch with a lawyer friend of mine. He promised to look into being able to represent you and your brothers in court. Any child whose parents are divorcing needs to have an attorney representing the child’s interests. Grandpa believes that if the courts can appoint an attorney without cost to people charged with crimes, the innocent children of divorce deserve the same rights. Dear writer, please know that Grandpa will continue to pray for you and your brothers. Grandpa, Why don’t you have an E-mail address? Grandpa says; With great respect for and apologies to the wonderful ladies who work at my local Post Office, Grandpa has been dragged, kicking and screaming, into the 21st Century. See below. Got something stuck in your craw? Ask Grandpa. Address your letters to Ask Grandpa c/o The Voice, 314 N. Lake Street, Suite 2, Aurora, IL 60506 or send an E-mail to askgrandpa@thevoice.us.

Two disturbing issues surface in shooting of Trayvon Martin By Dr. Vincent Gaddis Professor of History Benedictine University The country is witnessing a great outpouring in the case of Trayvon Martin, the young Florida boy who February 25 was shot by Greg Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer. The raw emotions and street demonstrations speak to two very disturbing issues concerning race in the U.S. in 2012. First, the shooting of Trayvon Martin shows that in 2012, the life of a black boy is worth the same as in 1954, little to nothing. Here is a young, unarmed black boy walking in the rain from the 7-Eleven. He was wearing a hoodie and it was up, which makes sense in the rain, and he is followed and shot because Greg Zimmerman believed he was a criminal, a threat to his life, and therefore Zimmerman believed he was within his rights to shoot and kill Trayvon Martin. But what is the evidence that we have? From the 911 tapes it is clear that Martin was followed by Zimmerman after the 911 operator told him to stop. More disturbing was the racial slur of “f##king coon” Zimmerman uses while he follows and then confronts Martin, who we hear in another tape screaming and begging for his life before a single gunshot rings out. What happened that night was one of many acts of racism that happen in this country every day. We seem to have lulled ourselves into some romanticized vision of a future hope we mistakenly think is a present reality, that we have overcome racism, or that we have become a post-racial society. That somehow the foundational cultural, legal, social and economic systems of this country and the more than 300 years of the development and perpetuation of white supremacy were somehow over with the election of a black president But is that true? Look at our education system, the prison system, and employment. Nothing has changed the basic funding formula that leaves poor communities, which are overwhelmingly black and brown, with

substandard public education. African Americans are 13% of the population and 49% of the prison population and black unemployment has remained at a minimum of double the national average. They are examples of how we have not come very far on race. They are examples of institutionalized racism and of course, institutions are made up of individuals. Ask any African American and they can tell you their own experiences of being belittled, assaulted, or debased for no other reason than the color of their skin. The United States must open its eyes to the fact that racism and its ugly legacy are alive and well in 2012. I am Trayvon Martin. It is no wonder then, that the Trayvon Martin case has elicited the same mass, visceral response of indignation as another young black boy who was the victim of murderous racism, Emmet Till. Emmet Till’s murder, in 1954, brought national attention to the proposition that a young, unarmed, innocent, young man should not be brutally murdered simply because of the color of his skin. Since that murder we have seen the murders of other black men not because they were violent, but the violent system of white supremacy caught them in its clutches, Ammadu Diallo for example. Or the three white men convicted last week of killing James Craig Anderson in Mississippi. The demonstrations, marches and protests hopefully will result not only in justice for Trayvon Martin, but will get Americans to see that we must attack the system of white privilege in this country that made it acceptable February 25 for Greg Zimmerman to shoot Martin, and as of this writing, for Zimmerman to not be arrested and in essence, protected by the police department and others in the community who can’t or won’t examine the racial component of this crime. The second issue this shooting raises is the lure of the privilege attached to white supremacy. It has been noted in several places that Greg Zimmerman is a Latino. Clearly his actions speak to a mindset that somehow he was an heir of white supremacy. His racial slurs and behavior prior to the

shooting, calling the police on many occasions and always with the person in question African American, certainly indicate that Zimmerman believed he was part of the racial legacy of racism that historically has been held by whites. What is truly frightening is the longer the authorities delay, the more they reinforce the notion that Zimmerman is right in believing he is in fact an heir to white supremacy. In part, Zimmerman’s thinking from a cultural/historical perspective is not without precedence. For years at the turn to the 20th Century, European immigrants upon arriving in the U.S. quickly learned that whatever ethnic divisions may have existed among them, all of them were part of a powerful and privileged group called whites and one of the first words these immigrants learned when they arrived in the U.S. was nigger, thus engrafting themselves into the perpetuation of racism. Of course, this legacy goes before 1900 and after 2000. We may, as a nation, have turned a blind eye to these powerful realities in the post-civil rights era, but one thing is for sure, if Greg Zimmerman and others believe that they are a part of the power that is white supremacy and will kill in service to it, neglecting the larger reality that his own history is one of genocide and colonialism against his ancestors, we have truly failed to combat racism, as well as failed to teach the truth about the American past and present. Now is the time to come together as people who are fed up with the legacy of hate and racism that is America. Now is the time for people of all colors of good will to come together and resist the cultural/historical legacy of white privilege. Now is the time for whites to renounce racial privilege. Now is the time for African Americans to once again forgive in hopes of genuine change. Frederick Douglass was correct: Power concedes nothing without a struggle. The struggle today must be the fight to end the system of white skin privilege, and to root it out in every institution and every heart in this country. I am Trayvon Martin.

American-made products can help American fundraisers By Roger Simmermaker There are many ways to build on the Buy American movement, whether it’s through consumer purchases, writing encouraging letters to the editor of your local newspaper, or even pushing for more local, state, and national Buy American laws. But there is one other way to create jobs and bolster American prosperity that hasn’t been utilized so much, at least on a nationally-coordinated scale; and that is through the thousands of fundraisers that are routinely taking place simultaneously across America. You probably know them, some of you have probably organized them, and others of you may have run them: PTA wrapping paper sales, Little League candy drives, Choir “Spirit Wear” sales. And many, many, more. Recently, a new non-profit organization has sprung up and it’s got just the kind of focus that caught my attention: American-made fundraising. This group is about helping organizations find American-made fundraising ideas. And in doing so they are creating a perfect win-win situation: They’re helping folks raise money for good causes, and they’re helping them support American jobs at the same time. Their name? A Day To Market America. A Day To Market America (www.adaytomarketamerica.com) has filed for 510(c)3 status, and is on its way to succeeding in its goal by making more American-made products available for fundraisers, a powerful reality. Janet Dukic, founder of A Day To Market America, started with her own local school in Oak Lawn. Janet took action when she saw that her children had no option other than to peddle imported products from China, and various other countries, as a way to raise money for her school district. And when she posed this question to her local school board: Given the

choice, would everyone rather be selling Americanmade goods in support of our schools? She was delighted to find she had unanimous agreement. And why not? It makes perfect sense. Because our local schools receive a certain percentage of federal funding, we should be supporting American workers, those same workers who are paying into the U.S Treasury from which we draw those same funds that are going toward educating our kids. Anything less would be hypocritical. The types of products sourced from China that Janet Dukic has seen as offerings for local fundraisers include wrapping paper, stickers, candles, and an interesting product called “Smencils.” I bet there are some of you thinking, as I was, “Smencils? What in the world are Smencils?” They’re pencils that are made out of recycled newspapers, and come in varieties that smell like cherries, root beer, watermelon, orange, and cinnamon. So while they may receive high marks for helping the environment, if you ignore the large amount of pollution that will enter the atmosphere when large ocean vessels transport them from China, low marks are given for buying them because that’s draining wealth out of the American economy, and lower marks still for missing out on a huge opportunity to support American jobs. A Day To Market America helps organizations band together to make bulk purchases so they can acquire the American-made goods they seek at a lower price. A Day To Market America can help establish a relationship to achieve your group’s goals. For example, schools can unite and buy as a district, a community, or even something bigger. A local teacher could go out and buy imported dual pocket folders on their own for full price, or working together with other teachers in other schools in his or her district, that teacher could buy the American-

made brands in bulk and save money to boot! No longer will your children have to come home with fundraising options that raise money for worthy American causes while simultaneously sending money to China. We have a huge opportunity to direct American dollars, which previously might have been destined to foreign lands, to our own back yards, instead. It’s all about challenging your local school board, little league, Girl Scout or Boy Scout troop to think differently about how they raise funds. There are more companies, corporations, and organizations on board than you might expect. Little Caesar’s offers pizza kits with all American-made dough and toppings. Some Jewel Food stores have employees involved in community service programs that build American jobs.

When Aurora Public Library clerical aide Katie Michels set out to publish a magazine last year at age 22, she knew it was possible, and that she could do it. She knew in the beginning she would have to be a designer, writer, editor, photographer, investor, and marketer, and that along with it all, she would have to be savvy. “When you go into something like this, you have to be smart, knowing you will likely lose money. You have to work extremely hard. And though you can’t be naïve, you have to be positive,” Michels said. Now she has two issues of Off Switch magazine under her belt. She intends for the magazine to be offered quarterly, both online and in print. “Off Switch would not have been possible in any time but now,” Michels said. “Forty, 30, 20, even 10 years ago it wouldn’t have been possible. But now with great websites like issuu.com and magcloud.com I am able to self-publish fairly easily. Sites like those and others make starting a small business, one that can reach every corner of the world, feasible.” For example, she said, “Anyone who wants to, can sell knitted scarves or paper goods on Etsy.” (Etsy.com is a handmade marketplace for small-small businesses.) Those who are already intrigued by a young woman who started a slick, 60-plus page magazine can choose to stop reading this now and go to offswitchmagazine.com to look at an actual issue. Those who want to stick around with the written word, read on. Off Switch is meant to be a feast for the eyes and the heart; its aim is to be a collection of creative people displaying their work with the intent to motivate and inspire. Michels, a 2007 graduate of Aurora Central Catholic High School, is thankful for those who motivate and inspire her. “It would be harder if no one believed in what I was doing,” Michels said. “Having a support system is incredibly important.” Members of her support team include her parents, who incidentally helped her name the magazine back when even the idea of it was a good 15 years in her future. “When I was a little girl, my parents would say I didn’t have an off switch,” Michels said, “because I would chatter a lot. I turned that childhood comment into a motivational message about living a full life. So when it came time to name the magazine, Off Switch just felt right.” The magazine includes interviews, photography,

American-made products T-shirts, pencils (not the imported “smencils” kind) or even copies of How Americans Can Buy American bought in bulk, the idea is to offer fundraising ideas that support American workers for a better American economy that we can all enjoy. American-made options are out there for fundraising opportunities. All we need to do is to convert our desire for American-made products into a very real demand for them.

nutrition, art, inspiration and essays. Contributors are not paid. Currently, single issues must be purchased until subscriptions become a reality. The magazine is more local now than it will be in future issues. “Because it’s so young, it has a fairly large local focus,” Michels said. “I personally know some of the illustrators, photographers, and writers. For instance the copyeditor is my brother’s girlfriend, Anna Klenke, who works at Sourcebooks (a local publishing house).” Her second issue features an article on Jeff and Lisa Manning, Aurorans who run a yoga center and an art studio, respectively. Every day, Michels said, she checks out blogs written by creative people around the world. In this way, she has found contributors and formed friendships with individuals across the country and world. “So it’s not necessarily meant to be local,” she said. “It’s exciting to think people all over the country will read it.” Michels is her own ad rep. She has placed advertisements on blogs such as abeautifulmess.typepad.com where “there’s a whole community of women encouraging each other to be creative and pursue their passions,” Michels said. “This magazine is not just about me. It is meant to feature other creatives and to inspire readers to pursue their passions as well.” Michels earned a graphic design degree from Robert Morris University last July. On the last day of classes, she decided she would start a magazine, in part because of a class assignment for which she had to design a small eight page magazine layout. She fell in love with editorial design. The first issue, which came out in December 2011 contained 60 pages. The second issue, which came out March 22, is 80 pages. “I am really excited about the second issue,” she said. “We are keeping the ‘Through My Lens’ feature, where a theme is chosen and photographers submit images that match the theme.” The first ‘Through My Lens’ theme was portraits; the sec-

ond is landscapes. Another repeat feature is generated when a writer produces a piece of text, which is given to a photographer who does a photo shoot to illustrate it. The second issue’s photo shoot (overlooking the San Francisco Bay) was done by Heather Zweig, a northern California-based photographer. The text was written by Brittany Austin of Utah. Although the magazine is designed to appeal to 20- to 40-somethings, Michels said her grandmother “bought a copy and passed it around to her whole condo.” “It is appropriate for all ages and can inspire anyone to do what he or she wants to,” Michels said. Those with comments and questions about the magazine can contact Michels through her website, offswitchmagazine.com. Amy Roth is the public information manager for the Aurora Public Library.

Spring Spruce-Up volunteers make clean sweeps It’s amazing how much can be accomplished by working together. When collaboration and cooperation combine individual contributions into a collective effort, it’s a beautiful thing. Or, to coin the catch-phrase, “Many hands make light work.” That’s the spirit behind Spring Spruce-Up, the Fox Valley Park District’s premier volunteer event that brings community members together for the common good in the beautiful parks we all share and enjoy. This year’s event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 21, at six park sites. Volunteers of all ages are welcome to join in for what will be another fun and productive morning outdoors. And, it happens on the eve of Earth Day, a perfect pairing.

Each volunteer taking part in Spring Spruce-Up will be placed at the park site closest to their home and be joined by Park District staff members. Together, the groups will give their site a makeover involving litter clean-up, raking, and various other little tasks to make our neighborhood and community parks shine. All volunteers will receive a complimentary snack, bottle of water and a special Park District gift.

“Spring Spruce-Up is a wonderful way for coworkers, family and friends to enjoy some time together while giving back to their community,” said Debbie Smith, community outreach manager for the Park District and lead organizer for Spring Spruce-Up. “It’s also a good opportunity for children to learn the value and importance of volunteering and what a difference it can make.” Begun in 2009, Spring Spruce-Up has grown from 225 volunteers to more than 500 last year. Scout groups, church groups, students and neighbors all have joined in and given back to their neighborhoods and communities. “Clean parks are a positive reflection on the residents who live around them,” said Smith. “Volunteers who help maintain them gain a sense of ownership and pride.” The six park sites selected were spaced geographically throughout the District so no volunteer will have to travel far to help make a difference. The sites are: • Gilman Trail / Blackberry Farm, 100 S. Barnes Road, Aurora; • Montgomery Park, River and Mill streets, Montgomery; • North Aurora Island Park, State Street Bridge, North Aurora; • O’Donnell Park/Prairie Path, 1640 Reckinger Road, Aurora; • South Broadway Park, South Broadway and Hazel Avenue, Aurora; • Waubonsie Creek Park, Montgomery Road and Mair Drive, Aurora; A few hours on a Saturday morning, a volunteer party in the park, will make a big difference with lasting effects that go well beyond a simple cleanup. Jeff Long is the public relations manager for the Fox Valley Park District. Interested volunteers can contact Debbie Smith at 630-966-4555 to register for Spring Spruce-Up. These young volunteers were among the 500plus who took part last year in Spring SpruceUp, the annual cleanup event that will be held April 21 at six park sites throughout the Fox Valley Park District.

Converting to temp labor: Tim Bell to NIJwJ Upcoming events listed for the Park District Tim Bell of the Chicago Workers’ Collaborative, gave a well-received talk at Saturday’s meeting of the Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice at the Batavia Public Library. “There is a creep on jobs from the bottom,” Bell said with charts and graphs as aids “Many companies are using temp agencies as a way to lower wages and break unions. The nurses will be next. There will be more temps knocking on the doors of companies and the companies will go to temps. “Most places are converting to temp labor. The key to labor is to build up leadership inside the floor and not be afraid of the rank and file.” Bell, who gave an hour long report was encouraged by NIJwJ leader Mary Shesgreen to write an article which could be published in magazines and newspapers. Members discussed the mortgage foreclosure situation. They decided to hold a rally, as usual, the first Friday of the month when the Bureau of Labor Statistics issues an employment report. A rally site will be decided at a later time. —Carter Crane

Plainfield East boys basketball: Mixture of pride, sting By Bobby Narang Three years ago, Plainfield East High School boys basketball head coach Branden Adkins and his staff members saw the future of the program. The brand-new Plainfield East High School had just opened, but the Bengals were comprised of mostly underclassmen and didn’t play a varsity schedule. Adkins witnessed some seeds of growth in that trying first season, and just maybe, with a little growth and time, could morph into something special by the time the 20112012 season started.

“When we looked at that freshman class, we thought they could play, handle the ball, had a good IQ and some good size,” Adkins said. “We thought if the pieces would come together, we would be pretty good.” Adkins’ vision came to fruition, with the Bengals establishing several school records that will be tough to break for years to come. Plainfield East finished with a school-record 27-2 won-loss record after losing a heart-breaking 58-53 decision in overtime to West Aurora in the Class 4A East Aurora Sectional semifinal. The Bengals claimed many records

along the way: • First school regional championship in school history. • First school, Southwest Prairie Conference championship. • First undefeated team in conference history. • Tied for furthest postseason advancement in the history of any of the four Plainfield schools. • First Division I recruit in Brian Bennett for Plainfield East. The 6-9 Bennett will play for Cal-Poly next year. Still, Adkins admitted that the West Aurora loss remains a tough

pill to swallow. “We’re very proud of the kids and what they accomplished for being such a young program,” he said. “But the loss (to West Aurora) still stings, it will probably for a long time, until we get back to the sectional semifinal. Overall, we’re very proud of what the senior class accomplished in three years in the program.” The Bengals showed signs of a breakout season with an early-season victory over Downers Grove South on the way to winning the St. Charles See page 20

Huskies involved in Spring practice “I’m excited to be talking about football again. We start practice on Wednesday. For me, what I love to do is I love to coach the game, I love to teach the game and be around the players while they compete and so I’m really happy to be moving from my office-type time to the field. —Northern Illinois University head football coach Dave Doeren in a conversation with media Monday. “Our players have had a great offseason, been really focused. It’s been fun to watch. It’s always interesting when your seniors leave and you move

the guys down a row in the team meeting room and all of the sudden they are sitting there as seniors. “Offensively, the question mark will really be the chemistry of our offensive line. I’m not questioning anything about the talent we have there, it’s just when you play O-line it’s really like playing D-line. There are so many moving parts between those two position groups. There’s a chemistry that those five guys have to have together. We’ve got 10 able bodies this Spring.”

Blackhawks’ playoff picture likely set By Woodrow Carroll Prior to Sunday night’s game with the Nashville Predators, the Chicago Blackhawks honored former goalie, and recent Hall-of-Fame inductee, Ed Belfour. Then, once the game got under way, the Blackhawks proceeded to dishonor Balfour’s memory as Chicago net-minder with some rather shaky play. The final score was 6-1 in favor of the visiting Predators. The six-goal total by Nashville equaled a team season-high. Corey Crawford started in goal for the Blackhawks. Of late, Crawford has been more than steady in net and gave up lone goals in each of his previous two starts. It was a different story against Nashville.

When Nashville’s Francis Bouillon scored at the 2:00 mark of the third period to give the visitors a 4-0 advantage, Crawford was pulled in favor of Ray Emery. Just when it looked like the Blackhawks might move up in the standings, the game with Nashville seemingly ended that thought. Holding on to the sixth spot in the Western Conference is about the See page 20 Rosary High School freshman forward Quincy Kellett, 4, right, scored both goals in the host Royals’ 2-0 victory over Kaneland in Aurora last week in non-conference soccer.

High school Springs sports schedules are in the early stages. Outdoor games, subject to cold weather and rain, have had good fortune thus far, even with a little rain. Boys baseball and girls softball fill the schedule nearly every day. Wet Aurora will hold its annual Blackhawks Invitational in volleyball starting at 8:30 a.m. Saturday. The scene will shift the following weekend to the Glenbard East Invitational. Oswego’s girls soccer team is in the annual Pepsi Showdown and will play April 7. In boys track, the Elmore McCornack Invitational will be held at St. Charles East at 10 a.m. April 7. The John Bell Invitational will be at West Aurora at 10 a.m. April 14. The Oswego girls softball team will play at East Aurora March 30. East Aurora will play at West Aurora in girls soccer at noon April 7.

Final Four long way from Illinois basketball teams’ mindset By Carter Crane In major college men’s basketball news the University of Kentucky is the only No. 1 seed, from the original four, to qualify for Saturday’s Final Four in New Orleans. Kansas, Ohio State, and Louisville complete the field. All Illinois schools are on the outside looking in this season. Northwestern University gave head coach Pat Carmody an extension and some reports indicated that it was grudgingly. His tenure of the last five years has been worthy of retention. Illinois let Bruce Weber go after nine seasons and has had trouble finding a coach, which is an embarrassment to the school which sees itself as a top 15 or top 20 program in the country.

tory wilderness after three years. It should be duly noted that the Indiana fans supported their Hoosiers with understanding and optimism the last three seasons. As much as any reason is that the fans had faith in newly-hired coach Tom Creen, the former Marquette University coach. The fans sensed that Indiana was going in the right direction. On the other hand, Indiana’s lone major competitor is Purdue University in Indiana. Illinois competes with DePaul, Bradley, Northwestern, and many schools which find their way into the rich Chicago recruiting pool. Anthony Davis is a prime example. The tall center was picked off a mediocre Perspectives High School team by Kentucky and he has helped to make the team better by his inside presence. Myers Leonard is fine center, destined for the NBA with his 7-1 size, but he is no match for Davis. How did Davis get through the Illinois cracks and go to Kentucky? There are many top players who play at the national schools, such as Duke, Louisville, Kentucky, Kansas, Ohio State, instead of Illinois. Is it recruiting or mindset or lack of loyalty? Illinois will return to prominence when it figures out the problems in recruiting.

Plainfield East boys basketball: Mixture of pride, sting East Thanksgiving Tournament. “The Downers Grove South win was a big key for us,” Adkins said. “Last year we finished 15-13, but we were not really mature-wise to take the next step. We had no senior class or tradition to learn from. That win really showed that this could be a special season.” The Bengals claimed the Pekin Christmas Holi-

Blackhawks’ playoff picture likely set best the team can do. Through last Sunday the Blackhawks were 4226-8 for 92 points. Detroit had compiled 95 points in fifth place in the Western Conference and Nashville was in fourth place with 96 points. After facing New Jersey Tuesday of this week, the Blackhawks will be host to the St. Louis Blues at 7:30 p.m. Thursday night. The game with St. Louis will be the next to last home game this regular season for the Blackhawks.

two weeks of the regular season, it may be difficult to move up in the standings. Four of the final six games are on the road and the opposition is formidable. The Blackhawks are not likely to fall down in the Western Conference for that matter. What are needed are fewer games such as last Sunday, not with the Stanley Cup playoffs just around the corner. When Viktor Stalberg of the Blackhawks scored at 5:58 of the third period, fans sensed a ray of hope against Nashville. That glimmer ended 36 seconds later when Nashville’s Shea Weber scored to make the score 5-1. Emery’s 18 minutes in goal saw Nashville score twice in what was an against-the-grain showing by a team that had been playing well of late. Earlier in the week, the Blackhawks had defeated Columbus, 5-1, then Vancouver, 2-1 in overtime. In both games Crawford was stellar in goal.

Truex Off to Fast Start With Team Waltrip BRISTOL, Tenn. — At last, Martin Truex Jr.’s fortunes are rising at Michael Waltrip Racing. His thirdplace finish in the Food City 500 was his second top 10 of the season to date. Four races in, Truex ranks fourth in the Sprint Cup point standings. Truex, who is from Mayetta, N.J., won in June 2007 at Dover, Del., while driving a Chevy for Richard Childress Racing. In 2010, he moved to Waltrip’s Toyota team. Since that one Dover victory, 171 races have passed. After finishes of 22nd and 18th in points at MWR, it appears as if the 31-year-old has regained his form. Though the Bristol race was won on March 18 by a Dodge (Brad Keselowski), and a Ford (Matt Kenseth) finished second, the MWR Camrys of Truex, Clint Bowyer and Brian Vickers finished third, fourth and fifth, respectively. “We’ve just got a good organization right now, a good bunch of people,”

Bowyer is Truex’s lone

It was great to see the support we got from our community. We’ll miss them. We’re not going to rebuild. That’s not our goal. We plan on keep playing well.”

The victory over Vancouver proved a bit costly because an elbow administered by Duncan Keith of the Blackhawks to the head of Vancouver’s Daniel Sedin’s head earned Keith a five-game suspension starting with the Nashville game.

Students’ Voice By Jack Moore I can hear her whispering my name. But the fog is thick and navigation proves to be difficult. Her sweet voice causes my ears to rejoice as I venture through the misty cloud-like substance. Many obstacles I conquer to fulfill my destiny… to capture her and call her my own. I reached the origin of her siren song only to find nothing but a sense of longing and desire. I stand there, lost, hoping to…wait… her voice floods my head, creating an intense yearning that only she can fulfill! This time, I run blindly through the forest, my heart racing along with my legs. I arrive and screech to a halt, finally catching a glimpse of what I never believed I would. My eyes strain, trying not to blink in fear of losing her. I approach with caution, afraid I might scare her. We come face to face and I hold out my shaking arms to embrace her. But I come up empty handed. She eludes me like the end of a rainbow. Beautiful from afar she is, yet always leading me on a chase… Jack Moore is senior at Metea Valley High School in Aurora

What we missed By Leena Hwang The dawn sky is a painter’s dream; a pink canvas swirled with twists of darkness and ripples of soft orange. It is filled with pale wisps of clouds, giving the shadowed neighborhood below a false sense of protection against its own dark world. An old lamppost stands awkwardly in the middle of the street, the gray paint rusting and peeling off. Softly, it casts a fleeting, yellow shadow on the pavement below. The light flickers, then clicks, as if time itself was ticking away; waiting for morning to finally take flight and illuminate the town’s darkened silhouette below. A battered building lies in the midst of small houses and stores. If one squints, one may be able to make out discolored words spelling: City Bus Stop. Although they were once clearly visible, these words now hide underneath streaks of dirty, flaking red paint. Outside this structure lays a once-black street; now gray and filled with scuffs, tire tracks, and old rubber gum marks. This street holds stories, faint stories of kisses and reunions, of tears and good byes. It holds the se-

By Jonathan Hogue Our world is complex, as we all know and see Our minds engrained with horrors, right from our own television screens Murder, war, and greed take hold But never the ones who work in disguise Listening to the weak and challenging the strong Looking for a hand to fix society’s wrongs When we turn our backs on the ones right in the open We put shadows on the selfless workers, who are unspoken. Jonathan Hogue is senior at Metea Valley High School in Aurora

Second chances These opportunities can come and go with the wind. We should recognize the chances, but instead, We ignore them. Unknowing how to right a wrong, Unknowing how to heal the wound. Adam Roen is senior at Metea Valley High School in Aurora

Whisked Away By Nikole Clow Falling from the skin in darkened light, he prays silently to his dear wife. How he wishes they had more time. How he wishes he met me and my family for just one moment. He prays for all of us to have a happy life, to remember him for the rest of our lives. As he falls near the course ground, he says, “I’m sorry I won’t be around. I fought for my country, I fought for you. I fought for our children, though they never knew.

I will miss you forever, you will never be lost. You, my wife, and all my family, will be trapped inside my heart.” And so he goes down with a sad smile, while tears fall down my face for the first time in a while. I never knew him and he never knew me. But that’s alright, he was family. He was a soldier who fought for his state and died with love on February 13, 2008.

By Jancy Anthony Something you can always count on in life is that surprises will happen. Nobody knows whether or not they’ll be good or bad, but everyone knows that they will happen. In my case these surprises have forced me to grow up. God knows I wasn’t ready for this change, then again, I wasn’t expecting it either. That’s the thing about surprises, the bad ones, they’ll creep up on you, then knock you on your face. With no warning at all, you’ll be struggling to stand back up, and your life won’t halt for you to regain your balance! No, life will race forward, throwing its crap on your back, while you’ll be cringing on the ground with the mass of your issues weighing you down. Life will throw you into a hell not even Hades can tolerate. Life will force maturity down your throat. This seems unbearable, but, ironically surprises have their unanticipated perks. The wisdom you acquire with seniority is astonishing. You’ll have a whole new outlook at everything. It’ll be as if you’ll be seeing for the last time and you won’t want to miss a single detail. Every element that once went unnoticed will singe its significance into your irises. Surprises made me ancient, yet somehow I’ve stayed young. This must be my doom, my unwelcome destiny in premature adulthood. Janay Anthony is junior at Oswego East High School in Oswego

Judgment Days By Melisa O. High school is all about the judgments made of one another. Once made, the judgment daunts us like wasps, waiting to sting us at any moment. They walk the halls, holding their heads up high, filled with nothing but criticism. In four years, I have molded myself like clay, into someone-someone who is no longer me. We wrap ourselves around the fingers

of those whose opinions we find most important, with smiley faces, to cover the hurt and the fear we feel. We wrap ourselves up into our own little cocoons, hoping everyone else will accept us. Just like everyone else, I am a butterfly, hiding my colorful wings, trying to be what I think they want me to be, even when I know the toughest judge of all, is me. Melisa O. is senior at Metea Valley High School in Aurora

Q: Spay/Neuter Debate Continues DEAR PAW’S CORNER: I’m writing in response to “Tom C.,” who doesn’t want to neuter his purebred German Shepherd. Good for you for sticking to your and many people’s beliefs! I have met many breeders of purebred animals. They refuse to alter their “pet” — or for many, their bankroll — for any reason. For those of you who truly love your pet and your breed and try to find “perfect” homes for them (at the right price), you should know that many of them end up in shelters just like the mongrels (as Tom put it). I prefer the term “mix breed.” All Tom has to do if he truly cares is to look at any dog rescue site on the Internet and he will see many purebreds that are without a home. There are thousands of purebreds being put to sleep because there are no homes for them. The other thing about having animals

altered is that they are not only calmer, they are healthier. And it has been proven that an altered pet lives longer if cared for properly. By the way, I own two mix breeds and one purebred. All are rescues! The purebred was half her weight when we got her and has the saddest story out of all our critter kids. I don’t even tell her story, it’s that terrible! So please, spay or neuter your beloved pet (dogs or cats), no matter what breed it is. — Dee O., Palmyra, N.Y. DEAR DEE: Thanks for your support! I do stand behind the belief that spaying or neutering your dog or cat — whether purebred or not — is important and beneficial. Send your questions or tips to ask@pawscorner.com, or write to Paw’s Corner, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

For years I have been collecting cardboard casino coin containers and have accumulated at least 50 of them from casinos in Canada, Illinois, Arizona and Las Vegas. Because of the new ticket machines in the casinos, I believe my cardboard containers are now collectible. — Tony, Sun City West, Ariz. I contacted several collectors who buy, sell and trade casino gambling items such as tokens, chips and even ashtrays. There was no interested in your cardboard coin containers. This doesn’t necessarily mean they have no value. Have you considered listing them on eBay? *** My wife has been an avid book collector all of her life. Now that we are retired, we are thinking of selling some of her collections but have no idea if they are worth anything. Two of the series we are especially interested in are early and first editions of the Nancy Drew series and early copies of the Motor Boys books published during the early 20th century. — William, Port Orange, Fla. There were 22 volumes in the Motor Boys series, all published between 1906 and 1924. Most titles sell for about $5.

Don Thompson flies WWII T-6 plane By Carter Crane Don Thompson defied the odds. Few can claim a visit to youthful days in a direct way. Don Thompson went directly to experiences of long ago when he took a step back nearly 70 years last Sunday. He boarded a T-6 World War II replica airplane at the Aurora Airport in Sugar Grove. He flew the plane after Gauntlet Warbirds pilot Vess Velikov, 28, took off from the runway and landed 45 minutes later. Thompson, 91, of Boulder Hill in Montgomery, was a pilot in a similar plane for the Navy, 1942-1946. “That was quite an experience,”

Thompson said minutes after climbing out of the plane. I did three loops. The third one was the best. It was good. The first two I had a few problems, but no harm done. On the first two I wasn’t watching the air speed enough.” The veteran pilot, a member of the Fox Valley Veteran’s Breakfast Club which meets every other Thursday morning at Grandma’s Table in Montgomery, was joined at the Aurora Airport by his son, Bruce and Bruce’s wife, Mary, a music teacher at Washington Middle School in Aurora. There were a few friends who came for the takeoff.

“If you had told me he had not flown a plane in nearly 70 years, I would not have believed it,” pilot Velikov said. In the briefing prior to the flight in the office, Velikov told Thompson, “Our whole mission is for you to have fun. You’re the boss of the flight, I’m just keeping us safe.” The light winds were out of the north on the sun-kissed March 25 day with a few clouds present to make it a postcard occasion.

went 15 miles away southwest from the airport and to between 6,000 and 9,000 fight high. “When we get to 1,000 feet I will turn it over to you,” Velikov told Thompson in the briefing. In an interview with The Voice little more than one year ago, Thompson said simply that his experience during World War II, “was not a colorful career, but I enjoyed my time.” He came off of active duty in 1946, went into the Naval Reserves, the last 16 years in Massachusetts. He got out in 1968 and retired as a lieutenant commander. Herschel Luckinbill, the leader of the Fox Valley Breakfast Club, who is working on an Honor Flight Chicago fundraiser with the Ricky Lee band concert for two shows June 3 at the Paramount Theatre in Aurora, arranged for the flight. He placed a call to the Gauntlet Warbirds in February and was told the weather should be good by March 25. “I was very comfortable,” Thompson said. “Even when I had a little trouble with the first two loops. It had been a long time. It was quite an experience.”

Plainfield welcomes a Navy commander home section of U.S. Route 30 and 135th Street. For the half-hour that followed, Commander Roach was showered with hundreds of hugs and handshakes, a blessing from Father David Medow, Pastor of St. Mary Immaculate Parish in Plainfield. Plaque and challenge coin presentations from Operation Welcome You Home, Warriors’ Watch Riders, Naperville American Legion, and Hero Towing followed. Fox Valley Marines Detachment #1233 members presented Roach with a yellow, signature-filled welcome home flag. With a big smile, U.S. Navy Commander Greg Roach shared his appreciation with the group and thoughts for those who served along side him and for those who made the ultimate sacrifice. “The Provincial Reconstruction Team, that’s the part that I was priviledged to serve under,” he said. “We’re a service inter-agency organization. Many of you who served in the Armed Forces realize how challenging it is sometimes to talk to different groups within your own service. “In our group we had the Navy, the Army, the Army National Guard, Air Force, State Department, USDA, all together in Kunar Province (in Afghanistan), needless to say, one of the most dangerous places on planet Earth. We were out every day working with the government to help build a better country for the people of Afghanistan for the primary purpose of ensuring that country didn’t turn into a place that decided to attack our country again. “While we were over there, we didn’t come back

crets to the pasts of many, but all are forgotten for the years have taken their toll at last. The damp odor of summer creeps into the cool air, mingling with the faint breeze. Quietly, it searches for anyone to listen to its tales of dewy blades of grass and soft raindrops, but only in vain. With a sigh, the early draft rustles the green leaves above and continues on its journey down the empty boulevard. Crickets begin their song of duty, working with crows as they notify of the diminishing darkness. Within a few moments, their noise will eventually awaken the sleeping houses and people. The darkness will disappear and light will finally illuminate the world. And very soon, the wonders of quiet darkness will be gone. And yet, through this all, we sleep.

with all of our people, unfortunately. Our fellow team just south of us in Paktika lost a chief petty officer from the Navy and a staff seargent from the Army, and our friends in Farah lost a staff sergeant from the Army. “It’s a dangerous job and we want to keep them in our thoughts, certainly the Gold Star families. Thank you.” Roach was born in New York and grew up on Long Island. He was graduated from MacArthur High School in Levittown, N.Y. in 1991 and earned a B.S. in Marine Engineering from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. and a master’s in Nuclear Engineering at Georgia Tech. He served in the Navy’s submarine force aboard the USS Asheville in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and taught at the Naval Academy. After leaving active duty in 2004 he began working for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in Lisle. Assignments at the Braidwood Nuclear Power Plant and the LaSalle Nuclear Power Plant as a resident inspector followed. He continued his naval career as a reservist at Great Lakes Naval Station. Greg returned to active duty in January 2011 and was deployed to Afghanistan in June 2011. He returned home after serving as the executive officer of the Provincial Reconstruction Team in Kunar, Afghanistan for nine months. He earned a Bronze Star for his meritorious service. Roach lives in Plainfield with his wife, Jennifer, and two children, Gregory and Kate.

Students’ Voice Last Flight By Brianna Towers The string slips through small hands A tight grip loosens. By chance the wind shall blow, Weightless body floats away from the world, Leaving behind what is down below. Adventure waits in the sky For you and me to see, This is the last chance to fly So lift off the ground and flee. Soaring through the morning air, making giant leaps and bounds Across the valley, and dipping into the freezing rushing river.

The winds whisper quietly, even though those are the only sounds It sends a chill through the world, making it shiver. At full height, and nothing to see but a silver cloud, That starts to leak a fresh tear. Lighting strikes and thunder crashes aloud As the journey begins to fill with fear. When the balloon nears the ends of its flight, It rests its tired wings. It lands and has to give up its fight, And is perched as the tree branch swings. Brianna Towers is a senior at Metea Valley High School, in Aurora

New Data Center could make us all surveillance targets the government will come to its own conclusions By John W. Whitehead “Everybody’s a target; everybody with commu- about who you are, where you fit in, and how best to deal with you should the need arise. nication is a target.” What little we know about this highly classified —A senior intelligence official previously involved with the Utah Data Center spy center, which will be operated by the National In the small town of Bluffdale, Utah, not far Security Agency (NSA), comes from James Bamford, a former intelligence analyst from bustling Salt Lake City, the fedand an expert on the highly secreeral government is quietly erecting tive government agency. Bamford’s what will be the crown jewel of its expose in Wired, March 15, 2012, surveillance empire. Rising up out of a must-read for anyone concerned the desert landscape, the Utah Data about the loss of our freedoms in a Center (UDC), a $2 Billion behemoth technological age, provides a chilling designed to house a network of comglimpse into the government’s plans puters, satellites, and phone lines for total control, a.k.a., total informathat stretches across the world, is intion awareness. Bamford notes, the tended to serve as the central hub of NSA “has transformed itself into the the National Security Agency’s vast largest, most covert, and potentially spying infrastructure. The UDC is most intrusive intelligence agency expected to be fully operational by ever created. In the process, and for September 2013. Once complete the the first time since Watergate and the last link in the chain of the electronic other scandals of the (Richard) Nixon concentration camp that surrounds administration, the NSA has turned us will be complete, and privacy, as John W. Whitehead its surveillance apparatus on the U.S. we have known it, will be extinct. At five times the size of the U.S. Capitol, the and its citizens.” Supposedly created by the NSA in order to track UDC will be a clearinghouse and a depository for every imaginable kind of information, whether in- foreign threats to America, as well as to shore up nocent or not, private or public, including commu- cybersecurity and battle hackers, the UDC’s technications, transactions and the like. Anything and nological capabilities are astounding.

However, the data beand analyzed by the UDC’s supercomputers and ing targeted goes far beyond the scope of terrorist teams of government agents. In this way, by sift- threats.

ible web, also known as the deep web or deepnet, data beyond the reach of the public. This includes password-protected data, U.S. and foreign government communications, and noncommercial filesharing between trusted peers.” That the NSA, which has shown itself to care little for constitutional limits or privacy, is the driving force behind this spy center, is no surprise. The agency, which is three times the size of the CIA, consumes one-third of the intelligence budget and has a global spy network, has a long history of spying on Americans, whether or not it always has had the authorization to do so. Take, for instance, the warrantless wiretapping program conducted during the George W. Bush years, which resulted in the NSA monitoring the private communications of millions of Americans, a program that continues unabated today, with help from private telecommunications companies such as AT&T. The program recorded 320 Million phone calls a day when it first started. It is estimated that the NSA has intercepted 15 to 20 Trillion communications of American citizens since 9/11. What has proven to be surprising to some is that the Barack Obama White House has proven to be just as bad, if not worse, than the George W. Bush White House when it comes to invading the privacy rights of Americans. Yale law professor Jack Balkin notes, “We are witnessing the bipartisan normalization and legitimization of a national-surveillance state. [Obama has] systematically adopted policies consistent with the second term of the Bush Administration.” Unfortunately, whereas those on the political left raised a hew and cry over the Bush administration’s constant encroachments on Americans’ privacy rights, it appears that the political leanings of those on the left have held greater sway than their principles. Consequently, the Obama administration has faced much less criticism for its blatant efforts to reinforce the surveillance state. Clearly, the age of privacy in America is coming to a close. We have moved into a new paradigm in which surveillance technology which renders everyone a suspect is driving the bureaucratic ship that once was our democratic republic. By the time this UDC spy center is fully operational, no phone call, no E-mail, no Tweet, no web search is safe from the prying eyes and ears of the government. People going about their daily business no longer will be assured that they are not being spied upon by federal agents and other government bureaucrats. Although the responses to the news of the Bluffdale facility have been varied, more individuals are starting to feel like Mike Newell, a Wired reader who had this to say about the UDC: “Not very long ago....I actually believed that I would be willing to sacrifice a bit of freedom for security. I believed that a guard or cop at the entrance to my community, checking I.D. would be better than car loads of gang members roaming through creating havoc. I once laughed at those who mistrusted the government and prepared for survival, should things go sideways. I supported efforts by our so called leaders to monitor society, in search for the ever present evil. Not long ago.... I slept. —The Rutherford Institute
